By Kellye Lynn, Reporter at ABC 7 News

Kellye Lynn, a reporter at WJLA, spent a few hours on campus speaking with students about their experiences and taking a tour of USG. She compiled an in-depth look at USG’s model and the success it offers so many in our state. 


Maryland college students benefit from nine universities in one location.

Twenty-two-year-old Allison Hishmeh is about to start a new chapter in life now that she’s graduated from the University of Maryland College Park. Even though she recently received a marketing degree from the school, Hishmeh rarely stepped foot on campus.

“We have a library, recreation center. We have our Office of Student Services. It’s all here. So I don’t need to go to main campus for anything,” she told ABC7 News.

Everything she needed she found at the Universities at Shady Grove. The Rockville campus represents nine schools in the University of Maryland system including Salisbury University, Towson, Bowie State and the University of Baltimore. Degrees are offered in fields such as business, psychology, nursing, pharmacy, and biology.
