This university has failed in so many ways. The engineering school is the only light in this land of darkness. The dean of the engineering school is friendly, entrepreneurial, and very approachable. Most of the engineering faculty I have dealt with are good. The school as a whole is the epitome of everything evil. Every night and especially game nights are sin city and that is actually a positive on most peoples accounts. The only thing to do here is get drunk on frat row, where you are forced to hang out with frat jerks and sorority prostitutes. Hence, if you don't drink, there is rarely things to do. The administration is so liberal and diversity oriented that you can't get a moments attention from them as a white male or female. This place is great if you are homosexual or otherwsise liberally inclined. However if you have any honest values or faith you will not be comfortable here. There are some church groups that are good (maryland christian fellowship is one), but the pervasive hate of traditional values harbored at this school is difficult if not impossible to ignore. The CORE classes they make you take here are a joke and an ENORMOUS waste of money. This school is far too expensive and gets more so every year. The mediocre "education" you might get here is absolutely not worth the money. One other needle in the haystack I have found here is the Army ROTC program. They provide me with the only way to keep sane in this land of America haters. The faculty is ten times more liberal than the students, on that note. I do not recommend this school, especialy if you are out of state due to costs.
