Short Presentation

The University of Maryland, College Park (often referred to as The University of Maryland, UM, UMD, UMCP, or Maryland) is a public research university[8] 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. It is considered a Public Ivy institution. 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.[7][9] 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.

The campus is located on the city of College Park, www.collegeparkmd.gov, in the state of Maryland.
It belongs to the metropolitan area of Washington DC, with about 5,500,000 inhabitants.

The Washington regions is in the humid subtropical climate zone and exhibits four distinct seasons. Its climate is temperate and typical of Mid-Atlantic U.S. areas removed from bodies of water.
Spring and fall are warm, while winter is cool with annual snowfall averaging 15.5 inches (39 cm). Winter temperatures average around 38 °F (3.3 °C) from mid-December to mid-February. Summers are hot and humid with a July daily average of 79.8 °F (26.6 °C) and average daily relative humidity around 66%, which can cause moderate personal discomfort. The combination of heat and humidity in the summer brings very frequent thunderstorms, some of which occasionally produce tornadoes in the area.

The College Park Campus of the University of Maryland, located in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., consists of 1300 acres of Georgian style buildings, trees, grassy malls and recreation fields. Although the University of Maryland was established in 1920, the College Park Campus was opened in 1859 and the Graduate School was established in 1919. The university currently has over 30,000 undergraduate students in over 100 degree programs and approximately 9,000 graduate students enrolled in 87 master's degree programs and 68 doctoral programs. Since 1937 the Mathematics Department has awarded more than 550 Ph.D. degrees.

The Campus has many recreation facilities including swimming pools, tennis and racquet-ball courts, gymnasia, art galleries, theaters and cinemas.
