You’ll feel at home in Westminster. It’s a small, historic town that has the feeling of a New England village—enhanced by easy access to both Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.
Good coffee, plenty of pizza, and an array of festivals: Westminster welcomes students warmly—and with student discounts. The College offers shuttle service to Westminster, and the Owings Mills metro station about 14 miles east, which provides transportation to Baltimore.
One of the attractions of McDaniel College is the opportunity to live in Maryland. There’s a lot available within easy reach.
Into camping, hiking, and the Great Outdoors? To the west you’ll discover Deep Creek Lake, waterfalls, and a portion of the Appalachian Trail.
To the South lie historical sites dating back to prehistoric times. Here in central Maryland is a mix of vineyards, horse country, and the bustling nightlife of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. And don’t forget the Eastern Shore, only three hours away, with its abundance of fishing and beach-bumming pleasures. McDaniel students also often venture to the cities of Philadelphia and New York City, both easily reached by train from nearby Baltimore.
