The University of Maryland presents itself as not being one of those big school, when in reality it very well is a big school. I have been at the University of Maryland for less than a year and hate it. The social life on campus sucks unless you are in a frat. Due to the vastness of the school it is hard to find people who are willing to make friends and who you are willing to have as friends. Overall, there isn't much of an intelligence here. There are no intellectual conversations and the classes are so big that you could never have a dialogue with your teachers or fellow peers. In conclusion, the University of Maryland is a terrible choice of a school and if I could choose all over again I would. I am proud to say that I will be transferring out at the end of the year.
responseI'm transferring too. Where are you transferring to?
