Real Students Telling Real Stories

Welcome to an exciting virtual journey through The Universities at Shady Grove (USG), brought to you by The College Tour TV show.

USG is one of the most unique college campuses you’ll find anywhere in America, as it is not a single university, but an innovative higher education center offering a variety of undergraduate and graduate-level degree programs from nine Maryland public universities on one shared campus.

As you listen to these stories told by students and alumni, you’ll discover the many reasons why students have chosen the USG campus to pursue their education. In addition to top-notch academic offerings by our partner universities, students here often thrive because of the close-knit campus community, smaller class sizes, diversity, array of scholarship opportunities, career-focused support services and the connections with local employers.

Get ready for a glimpse of life at USG and the possibilities that await you. Watch the full episode below. The full length episode will also be available on May 28, 2024, on Amazon Prime.
