If you're going to UMD because you didn't get into Ann Arbor or any other school, you probably aren't going to be happy. Period.

However… if you are a potential student that LIKES the campus, prospective program, and the commuter college experience, UMD is nice! A lot better than attending a community college. You'll still feel like you're a part of the University experience by attending any UM Sporting events in Ann Arbor…

And actually, it's easy to get involved in the student activities. People are very friendly, and the clubs have really open memberships. If you make an effort to try and get involved, you'll find that you'll get to know a lot of people on campus and you'll have a lot of fun.

I'm not into the Greek scene, but there's actually a big sorority/frat community on campus that has a lot of fun and hosts lots of events.

Academic-wise, there are no TAs in my department, very nice. Most of the staff is really helpful and experienced.

Parking sucks… and so does commuting to the SoE building. The workout center is too small, and the UMD sports teams aren't too involved/exciting.

Overall, if you WANT to go here, then you'd probably like it. I find people that hate it here never wanted to go here in the first place… I chose UMD over UM-AA because I wanted to stay home.
