Description
The University of Maryland, College Park (often referred to as The University of Maryland, UM, UMD, UMCP, or Maryland) is a public research university located in the city of College Park in Prince George's County, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C。 Founded in 1856, the University of Maryland is the flagship institution of the University System of Maryland。 With a fall 2010 enrollment of more than 37,000 students, over 100 undergraduate majors and 120 graduate programs, Maryland is the largest university in the state and the largest in the Washington Metropolitan Area。 It is a member of the Association of American Universities and a founding member of the Atlantic Coast Conference athletic league。 The University of Maryland's proximity to the nation's capital has resulted in strong research partnerships with the Federal government。 Many members of the faculty receive research funding and institutional support from agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Department of Homeland Security。 As of fiscal year 2009, the University of Maryland, College Park's operating budget was projected to be approximately US1.531 billion。 For the same fiscal year, the University of Maryland received a total of 518 million in research funding, surpassing its 2008 mark by 117 million。 As of December 1, 2011, the university's "Great Expectations" campaign had exceeded 900 million in private donations.

地理位置
Even students who appreciate the beauty of UMD’s campus and who enjoy taking advantage of its myriad resources can’t think of many positive things to say about College Park. The area is a run-down suburb located off the highway that connects Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, MD. Students with cars tend to prefer going in either direction to sampling the few student-centered options in the strip malls along Route 1, and students without cars can always take the Metro. Since most students do live off-campus, however, there is a lively house-party scene. Certain neighborhoods develop a real community feel. And the importance of having two major urban centers accessible cannot be overstated: students often pursue high-level internships or summer jobs there, as well as recreational opportunities.

校园
Maryland’s campus is green and spacious, with broad, well-maintained lawns and matching austere red-brick white-columned colonial buildings. It is also huge, which befits a school with a total student population of over 70,000. Students need bikes or cars to get around. The towering dorms built to accommodate several hundred underclassmen each are modern and less aesthetically pleasing; they’re also relatively far from the central areas, including McKeldin Mall, where students congregate on sunny days, the ODK Fountain, and the Stamp Student Union, as well as Shipley Field and Byrd Stadium.

宿舍条件
Maryland has been suffering from a housing crunch since 1994, so freshmen often live in makeshift triples or quads. They are the only ones who are guaranteed housing; almost everyone else lives off-campus. Sophomores can usually find a place in the dorms, too, but they do not have priority, and sometimes even first-years end up on the daunting 1,500 person waitlist. Cumberland, Centreville, Denton, Easton, Ellicott, Elkton, Hagerstown, and LaPlata are all high rise, traditional, co-ed dorms that date back to the ‘60s. They house 500-650 students each in a range of singles, doubles, triples, and suites. Cecil Hall is the only single-sex dorm. Old and New Leonardtown are large, co-ed apartment-style residence halls that house 670 students. Dorchester is a traditional, co-ed, medium size dorm, home to the Jimenez-Porter Writers House and Global Communities.

体育培养
The athletic culture at Maryland is raucous and all-consuming, especially in regards to football—tailgating is a way of life, as is rioting when things don’t go well. The school ranks third, behind Clemson and Florida State, for its number of Conference Championships. Basketball is also incredibly popular: in 2006, the Terps beat Duke to win the Women’s National Championship for the first time. From February through March, the campus is “Garyland,” a reference to alum and Coach Gary Williams, who has led his team to eleven straight appearances in the NCAA tournament. The school is Division I in the Atlantic Coast Conference and boasts championship-winning teams in field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer, too. This is a serious sports school. Students need to be talented to play even on intramurals teams, and many do.
