During first semester of freshman year, I frequently thought to myself, “Oh, wouldn’t it have been nice if someone had told me this beforehand? Like, how to make the bus stop, or the fact that I’ll be walking a ton every day?” And before I was a freshman, I was a high school senior wondering if the University of Maryland at College Park was the right school for me. “How is campus life like? Are the dorm bathrooms gross at UMD?” I wondered. Other than what I heard from a few friends who were students here, I didn’t really know how life at UMD would be like. That's why I created UMD Explained, so prospective and incoming freshmen can have a better idea of what to expect.

This blog is NOT an official publication of the University of Maryland. I am a student here, but the University of Maryland does not pay or compensate me in any way to write about them. I aim to be very honest with my reviews and opinions. I don’t sugarcoat things. However, I try to present all factual information in an objective and informative way.

Photos are taken by me or Peggy (official photographer of UMD Explained). If you would like to use one of our photos, please link back to us.
