Resources are very limited at this college.Quite BrightUndecided
Resources are very limited at this college. They are way behind with technology. Some Residence halls are out of date and do not even have air conditioning. This school does not live up to its price tag. Too expensive for what you get. Dining hall is terrible although they are trying to make it better.

I'm currently a freshman here, and I'm inQuite BrightPhysics
I'm currently a freshman here, and I'm in the middle of my first semester. I used this website to look at every single school I applied to - ten, to be exact. This was the very first school I visited, and I fell in love with it upon first sight.

Back in high school, I did not have very many friends because I really kept to myself; but here, if I am ever bored I can send someone a text and be able to hang out within minutes. Everyone is so friendly. Even if you don't know someone, they will smile and say "hey" as you walk by.

I'm a physics major, which is pretty difficult to say the least but my professor is awesome. He really stresses the idea that we visit him during his office hours if we ever need help, even for the small things. He makes sure we know that he is always here for us and is looking for us to succeed - and every professor is like that.

Coming here, you will NOT be a number. The profs learned everyone's name in my classes within the first week. My largest class is calc 2, and that's because they only offer one time for it in the fall. We have about 20 people. My smallest class has eight.

The food here isn't the best, but it's not as bad as everyone says it is. The dining hall allows you all you can eat which is awesome when you want to hang out and study or be with friends.

I overall absolutely love everything about McDaniel. I love the size because I know almost everyone in my class, and the professors really get to know you on an individual basis.If you are considering this school, please make sure you visit and if possible sit in on a class or spend the weekend - you will not regret it!

I go to McDaniel, and almost went toQuite BrightBiology
I go to McDaniel, and almost went to Washington, but didn't in the end, and I'm SO glad I didn't. There's a whole circle of private liberal arts schools in the midatlantic, each with their own reputation, and Washington has the worst by far. I've played them in field hockey before, and the girls on the team seemed really rude and snooty, and when I talked to some of them, they all told me that they have almost no work at school...their parents pay their whole tuition, they don't do any work, they play field hockey, and they was ridiculous, and nothing like what the school had said to me at the open house I went to. It's not a serious school at ALL, apparently. I've heard so many terrible things about that place since I started college. There's a lot of genuinely bright kids there who are broken-spirited because they aren't getting anything for their money. All the other schools in the area really do not like them. We all see them as lazy and rich kids who don't work for anything and party all the time because they're not assigned schoolwork. I'm just putting this out here for any kids who are looking at the midatlantic liberal arts schools. Don't go to this one. They pull out 15 smart kids and use them in all their advertising to make them look like they care about academics. It's a scam.
