Overview

The University of Maryland is a major research university, with exacting admission standards. Its beautiful campus accommodates nearly 27,000 undergrads, who can choose from a wide variety of programs. The school’s athletic teams – the Terrapins (or Terps) – excel in basketball, lacrosse, and sometimes football. Changes are in the air for Maryland as it moves from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big Ten, though it will certainly remain a solid research university wherever it takes its affiliation.
