Whoever thinks this is a party campus has got be on something. UMD is simply not a party school, theres like 3 bars in a 15 mile radius. Three bars to serve a student body around 30,000. As for social building, there isn't much. About 1/2 the student body goes home during the weekends. There isn't much to do on campus, if you want to have fun you have to go out to off campus house parties (the police are onto on campus in a snap of a finger, resulting in alcohol citations and mandantory court appearances). While off campus parties are fun, it is also dangerous. The city of college park (if you can even call it a city) is a dump. Off campus parties can sometimes lure local thugs in and attract other thugs looking to rob and assault students who have had one too many to drink. If you want your college experience to include partying, don't include UMD as one of your choices.
