Yet another reason students flock to Maryland is for the diversity of the student population. Maryland has a sizable population of international and minority students, and an array of students with different religious, political, and gender preferences, as well as learning and physical disabilities. Aside from an occasional ignorant hate crime, there is a high level of tolerance on campus for people of different religious, cultural, and sexual backgrounds. Although there is a perceived lack of integration between diverse student groups, UMCP’s successful attempts at celebrating diversity shine through in the classroom. It is truly a melting pot of gold here.
While students from New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut may appear to be a majority, only a relatively small number of the student population is from the NYC metro area. Students from all over the United States and the world join Maryland’s campus to take advantage of such a dynamic and diverse learning environment, and many students come to appreciate the opportunity to meet and spend time with people from different cultural backgrounds.
