UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND EASTERN SHORE

 

HISTORY


   Founded in 1886 as the Delaware Conference Academy, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) is a land-grant, historically Black college which has survived numerous governing bodies and name changes, beginning with a mere nine students and one faculty member.

   Today, UMES has developed an academic program above, and perhaps more impressive, than any other higher educational institution of its size in the East, and is the only four-year institution on the shore to offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in computer science.

 

CAMPUS LIFE

   Located in the historic Maryland town of Princess Anne that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the campus encompasses over 600 picturesque acres, 28 major buildings, and 41 other units. Many students arrive from neighboring major cities including Baltimore (119 miles), Washington, DC (133 miles), Philadelphia (139 miles), Richmond (180 miles), and New York City (239 miles).
