The main campus of the University of Maryland at College Park was founded in 1856, originally chartered as the Maryland Agricultural College. The older buildings on campus feature Georgian architecture constructed of brick with classic white columns, while the newer structures are a more modern style. Enjoy the following photos and get a glimpse of the University of Maryland and its amenities.

Photo: The traffic circle on Campus Drive welcomes visitors with a letter "M". Flowers are planted in the "M" twice a year, once in the fall with pansies and again in the spring with annuals, usually vodka begonias. The "M" was created in 1976 to commemorate the bicentennial of the United States.
