Anyone go to UMD? - July 10, 2013, 11:31 AM

I don't post on here often but this might be worth a shot (please let me know if I'm not allowed to post "ads" here I'll take it down):

I'll be transferring into University of Maryland CP this fall and I'm looking for some roommates/ a place to stay. I figure it'd be a lot easier if I didn't have to justify, for example, why there's half a motorcycle in parts laying all over my bedroom. Plus, let's admit it, motorheads are usually a rowdy bunch that know how to have fun.

Oh right a little bit about me:
Max, 20yo, good with a camera, useless with tools, Currently somewhere between Comp Sci, Info Sys, and Marketing Majors. I dont care for long walks on the beach - I burn easily and walking sucks anyways. I ride a DRZ400sm if that matters?


If you live in CP or know someone looking for an extra roommate shoot me a PM.
Thanks
Max

Enjoy! I graduated from UMD back in 2011.

Also, make sure your bike insurance covers theft and vandalism.

haha...I would of been like "who is this dude?" if I had not read DRZ400sm. Yes US(now that I am part of that group) of SM riders are a little rowdy.

We's a good peeples tho!! - yes I did that intentionally. And I would go Comp Sci, hard but extremely rewarding and basically opens most doors in the tech world for jobs. I switched from Development to Security without even really using my resume. Just sayin...

I know nothing about UMD...hopefully you find a good spot though.


Remember when sex was safe and motorcycles were dangerous?

CS and Info. Sys....can't go wrong with either. I took a number of CS classes at UMD...it is interesting to say the least but large companies flock to CS majors there so it ain't too bad if that is what you wanna do. Major is hard though, my CS friends were always up coding....

Yes, I went to UMDCP.
Unless things have changed radically in the 10 years since I've left, here's my general view on everything in a 3-5 mile radius of the main campus.

There are several areas which have low rents, but are densely public assistance, blue collar working class and heavily immigrant populated. There are pros and cons that come with such.
If you're not used to or comfortable living in these environments, I would recommend passing on anything:

South of Belcrest Road & Queens Chapel Road (nix, West Hyattsville).
West of PG Plaza and West of the Park on 23rd Ave on University Blvd.
Parts of Riverdale. All of Langley Park.

As a reference:
I lived in West Hyattsville off 16th Ave at the park behind the Metro station while in undergrad. In the 3 years I was there, my car was broken into twice. I would never consider that a safe environment for a motorcycle to be parked.

Your best overall bets are Beltsville, Old Riverdale, Historic Hyattsville, and College Park itself.

If you find any listing that refers back to terprealty@comcast.net, take it. I know the guy personally and he maintains all of his properties in the area. Long time UMD alumnus and supporter with deep ties to the college.
