Students are apathetic toward national and campus politics, and the world and life in general. Students are extremely friendly - for the first month your fall semester freshman year. Once that time has past, you'll rarely be able to make a new friend; most students unconquerable superiority complexes and are too good for you. If not for the university, College Park would be a slum. Violent crime occurs in CP and on campus. Both CP and campus are ugly and in disrepair. There are technically several bars in town, but most are patroned by local scum, thus, for practical purposes, there are only 4 bars in town, only 2 of which you will consciously elect to attend once you are actually 21. Despite your best intentions, you will rarely make use of Baltimore or DC for academic, social, or any other purpose - believe me, it just doesn't happen. UM athletics are awesome, except for the two most important, football and men's basketball, which are perennially disappointing. The administration is 100% concerned with image and marketability, and 0 % concerned with the actual running of the university, funding and improving the quality of education. They are also 100% despotic when it comes to their 'big brother' student life policies (they expect you to be as good and perfect as Wally Cleaver and if you are not they will actively search for a way to discipline you). The one strength of the university is academics (though how strong depends on your major). The school has no funding and, if you keep-up with your U.S. News & World Report, you know that the university has actually fallen in the past several years.
