Going to college, whether at a two-year or a four-year
college, gives you more skills and a better chance to
succeed. College students have opportunities to grow
personally, intellectually, and professionally, and college
graduates make more money.
Maryland is fortunate to have 56 colleges and universities
from which to choose - colleges that offer every
