The UMD Experience

2 Students walking on the Mall in Fall

To be a Terp is a truly unique experience.  Maryland students celebrate traditions like rubbing Testudo’s nose for good luck and jumping in the ODK Fountain.  You cheer the Terps at Maryland Stadium, XFINITY Center and Ludwig Field, build sustainable housing and award-winning engineering vehicles.  You hop on the Metro to get to your internship on Capitol Hill and take classes from award-winning professors.  You are a short trip from the hallowed halls of Congress, the world’s greatest museums and monuments, and the seat of the State government.  Being a Terp is truly a one in a million experience that you will treasure for a lifetime!
