You are embarking on an incredibly exciting time of your lives. At the University of Maryland, we offer many ways to get to know us, including perusing our website, meeting members of the Terp family in your hometowns and visiting our campus. All of these opportunities are designed to help you make decisions that will support you in achieving your goals.
As an alumna, I am proud of the accomplishments of our faculty, staff and students. You, too, will get to know the university as a world-class leader in research and teaching, entrepreneurship and innovation, and sustainability and security. But most of all, you will get to know us as caring people who are committed to the success of our university and students.
As a parent, I understand how exciting—and daunting—the college search process can be. The staff in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions is available to you. Please let us know how we can help.
All my best to you.
