If you’re worried about graduating from college with a job in the current job market, as many recent graduates are, then you may want to consider applying to the University of Maryland-College Park. The Wall Street Journal ranked the University of Maryland 8th among recruiters’ top-rated universities. Located in College Park, Maryland, just a short 8 miles from Washington DC, UMD has 27 programs ranked in the Top 10 by US News and World Report.
If you’re a sports fan, you have many options of teams to root for at both the collegiate and professional level. The Terps, short for Terrapin, will transition from the ACC to become members of the prestigious Big Ten Conference during the 2014-2015 academic year creating new rivalries with schools that have strong athletic traditions such as Michigan, Penn State and Ohio State. Additionally, it was announced on June 3, 2013, that the Big Ten will recognize lacrosse, and the University of Maryland’s men’s and women’s teams will. If professional sports are more your cup of tea, the Baltimore Ravens play just 30 minutes from campus and the Washington Redskins are just down the road. You can also catch the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals play at the beginning and end of the school year.
At some point during your time at the University of Maryland you may need to rent a cheap public storage unit near 20742. There are many rental options within a 5 mile radius from campus that will run you about $40-$60 a month for a basic 5’x5′. As you go towards the Washington DC area costs will increase as land is more expensive so I would recommend narrowing your search to affordable storage facilities near UMD. Many facilities are currently offering move in specials with $1 rent for up to the first year or 15% off your first month’s rent. These are great discount options, just read the fine print so you are aware when the promotional price ends and what your monthly rate will be at the end of the special.
