University of Maryland Self-Guided Tour

The University of Maryland is a large public university in College Park, Maryland with approximately 28,000 undergraduate students and 10,500 graduate students attending the university. Both Baltimore and D.C. are only about 30 minutes from the school so students have access to great restaurants and shops. Maryland also has a strong school spirit surrounding its athletics. Forty NBA players are from the University of Maryland! School colors are red, gold, and black and the university mascot is the Terrapins, or the “Terps.”

“There is a journal under one of the benches in UMD’s chapel. If you find it, you can share your thoughts in it too.”
