Coming here, especially out of state, was the worst decision of my life. Unless you are from Maryland and want to pursue what feels like a continuation of high school, I do not recommend this school..

Academics: I have no teachers that know my name. I have no teachers that care enough to make sure their students are ahead on the material. I have a few that are very condescending and make you feel stupid when you ask any type of question. Not a quality education in any sense, you could get better at a different state school.

Night Life: HAAA. Few ghetto bars and the occasional distugstingly packed frat parties. Most of these bars and the streets in general are not even CP students. If this is your idea of a good time, then maybe you'll enjoy it here and I also sincerely pity you. Don't expect to go out alone at night either, and don't expect their to be house parties. Don't expect anything, this place utterly is not a party school despite what people say.

People: If you're from Maryland, you probably won't have a problem getting along seeing as how I'm sure 50% of your high school is here. If you're not, people are very close-minded. There are a few other represented states that tend to fit into the MD lifestyle, i.e. New Jersey. Don't come here out of state thinking people will be open to meeting you. In reality, people could care less. Everyone is very inconsiderate and rude.

Food: is terrible. There are no nice places to eat off campus too so you're basically screwed.

Safety: What safety? College park is a slum

I don't even feel like naming more reasons. Do not make the same mistake I did, I pay for it every day of my life until I finally have the opportunity to get out of here.
