67% of students gave University of Maryland, College Park 5 stars overall.
The College of Education was excellent. Faculty were helpful in steering students toward graduating in 4 years (in th 60s, 4 years was the customary length of an undergraduate degree). In those days, dining options were limited, but have improved. The high rise dorms were new and offered a very fine on campus housing option. Expect to walk a lot as the campus is huge. Some majors are better than others, so be sure to check on the current reputation of a specific department.
