| I love the physics department. The rest of the campus is so-so. Other big departments (engineering, comp sci) seem so obsessed with grades, whereas physics (only 180 majors) seems to care about learning and getting undergraduates involved with research. The university as a whole seems to care more about the appearances (of the campus and of the student body and its achievements) and sports (which I do think are important just not as much as this campus makes them out to be) than with the students specifically. Plus, the dorms here are not great, and eating in the dining hall is terrible if you happen to be a vegetarian or are just picky. |

| UM offers a vast academic menu plus cocurricular opportunities abound and are easy to get involved in outside of class. |
I've experienced excellent academic advising and guidance. Professors and teaching assistants are very approachable.
UM College Park Honors Program is listed among the top nine honors programs at state universitities in the nation. The program offers students the personal attention and class size of a small college and the diversity and opportunity of a large research university. Also, the scholars living/learning program is being used as a model for other programs throughout the county. The average SAT score of entering Honors students is over 1400; the average GPA is 4.1. There are 700 students in each entering Honors class, which is about the entering class size at John Hopkins University.
Being an Honors student is a privilege and a challenge. We are not considered geeks.The food is okay with lots of variety. If you're not into sports, there's always a couple plays, shows, etc., to choose from on the weekends--at reduced student prices.
