50% of students gave University of Maryland - University College 5 stars overall.
I signed up for online classes, and it was a waste of time and money. The teacher, Dale Paxman, obstinately refused to help me and told me I should quit.
I like that it close to my home and that the atmosphere looks so live. I know people who attend this school so I am happy I know some people already. I attended this college while I was participating in Upward Bound. I did it for four years, while in high school and I just loved the whole experience! The whole campus is so beautiful! It's a lot of walking but the exercise is great!
