The university’s new president, Wallace D. Loh, strongly believes in promoting student opportunity as well as internationalization. One reason? He was an international student himself. Dr. Loh was born in China and raised in Peru, and he came to the United States alone at age 15 with the meager life savings of his parents to pursue his education. He went on to earn a law degree and a doctorate, and he speaks four languages. Dr. Loh’s college experience changed the course of his life, and he wants other students to have that same chance to realize their dreams.

Conveniently located just minutes from Washington, D.C., the University of Maryland can get you where you want to go. The campus is a short Metro ride from all the culture and opportunities of such an international city—including dozens of embassies and potential internships at places like the National Institutes of Health, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. You’ll be a car or train ride from Annapolis, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York (not to mention within 45 minutes of three major airports). And the university’s shuttle buses make it easy to get around College Park, with its eclectic hangouts and cool vibe. ns tit u (9 te s m of ile H s/ ea 14 lt k m h  ) »

Cayetano was drawn to Maryland’s proximity to the nation’s capital and the beautiful, bustling campus. He played intramural soccer, served in the University Senate, joined several clubs and spent a semester in Paris. Plus, he landed two D.C. internships related to his field. Maryland, he says, “is a way to discover yourself and a new city.”

Ramatou was drawn to Maryland by the prestige of its A. James Clark School of Engineering. She’s gotten the powerful experience she’d hoped for: The academic program is challenging, the professors push her to do her best, and she learns from peers in group projects. She plans to stay awhile, too—Ramatou aims to pursue her graduate degrees here.

Conveniently located just minutes from Washington, D.C., the University of Maryland can get you where you want to go. The campus is a short Metro ride from all the culture and opportunities of such an international city—including dozens of embassies and potential internships at places like the National Institutes of Health, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. You’ll be a car or train ride from Annapolis, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York (not to mention within 45 minutes of three major airports). And the university’s shuttle buses make it easy to get around College Park, with its eclectic hangouts and cool vibe. ns tit u (9 te s m of ile H s/ ea 14 lt k m h  ) »

Cayetano was drawn to Maryland’s proximity to the nation’s capital and the beautiful, bustling campus. He played intramural soccer, served in the University Senate, joined several clubs and spent a semester in Paris. Plus, he landed two D.C. internships related to his field. Maryland, he says, “is a way to discover yourself and a new city.”

Ramatou was drawn to Maryland by the prestige of its A. James Clark School of Engineering. She’s gotten the powerful experience she’d hoped for: The academic program is challenging, the professors push her to do her best, and she learns from peers in group projects. She plans to stay awhile, too—Ramatou aims to pursue her graduate degrees here.

The university’s new president, Wallace D. Loh, strongly believes in promoting student opportunity as well as internationalization. One reason? He was an international student himself. Dr. Loh was born in China and raised in Peru, and he came to the United States alone at age 15 with the meager life savings of his parents to pursue his education. He went on to earn a law degree and a doctorate, and he speaks four languages. Dr. Loh’s college experience changed the course of his life, and he wants other students to have that same chance to realize their dreams.

Terrapins are smart. Most admitted freshmen carried a strong A/B+ average in high school and challenged themselves with honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses. The middle 50 percent of our admitted freshmen score between 1250 and 1400 on the SAT or between 28 and 32 on the ACT. One-fourth score above 1400 on the SAT, and about two-thirds are in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. Successful transfer applicants demonstrate better-than-average grades in strong academic courses and complete Fundamental Studies English and mathematics. Admitted transfer students earned an average GPA of 3.34.

Terrapins are smart. Most admitted freshmen carried a strong A/B+ average in high school and challenged themselves with honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses. The middle 50 percent of our admitted freshmen score between 1250 and 1400 on the SAT or between 28 and 32 on the ACT. One-fourth score above 1400 on the SAT, and about two-thirds are in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. Successful transfer applicants demonstrate better-than-average grades in strong academic courses and complete Fundamental Studies English and mathematics. Admitted transfer students earned an average GPA of 3.34.

NATSUHA KURODA ’12 PHYSICS / JAPAN

As an aspiring astrophysicist, Natsuha’s researching solar weather at NASA. But studying at Maryland is down to earth: She likes seeing so many international students on campus and the university’s diversity, which she says “keeps a sense of community, but respect for different cultures.”

A widely known researcher in micro air vehicles, Dr. Pines is a big supporter of student achievement—and the engineering student teams that compete around the world. Whether they’re building underwater robots, Baja race cars or a human-powered helicopter, Terp engineering teams succeed by sharing his commitment to teamwork, research and innovation.

Terrapins are smart. Most admitted freshmen carried a strong A/B+ average in high school and challenged themselves with honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses. The middle 50 percent of our admitted freshmen score between 1250 and 1400 on the SAT or between 28 and 32 on the ACT. One-fourth score above 1400 on the SAT, and about two-thirds are in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. Successful transfer applicants demonstrate better-than-average grades in strong academic courses and complete Fundamental Studies English and mathematics. Admitted transfer students earned an average GPA of 3.34.

Coming to Maryland didn’t just give Alek the opportunity to swim competitively and train for the 2012 Olympics. He says the academic environment “made his brain work” and allowed him to dive into three majors and be exposed to new ideas.

The university’s new president, Wallace D. Loh, strongly believes in promoting student opportunity as well as internationalization. One reason? He was an international student himself. Dr. Loh was born in China and raised in Peru, and he came to the United States alone at age 15 with the meager life savings of his parents to pursue his education. He went on to earn a law degree and a doctorate, and he speaks four languages. Dr. Loh’s college experience changed the course of his life, and he wants other students to have that same chance to realize their dreams.

Cayetano was drawn to Maryland’s proximity to the nation’s capital and the beautiful, bustling campus. He played intramural soccer, served in the University Senate, joined several clubs and spent a semester in Paris. Plus, he landed two D.C. internships related to his field. Maryland, he says, “is a way to discover yourself and a new city.”

Ramatou was drawn to Maryland by the prestige of its A. James Clark School of Engineering. She’s gotten the powerful experience she’d hoped for: The academic program is challenging, the professors push her to do her best, and she learns from peers in group projects. She plans to stay awhile, too—Ramatou aims to pursue her graduate degrees here.
