A private liberal arts college in Westminster, MD. Enrollment is about 1600 students, and there are 90 full-time professors. Offers 23 majors, and special programs in deaf eduction, engineering studies, forestry studies, pre-law, pre-med, ministerial studies, and museum studies. A "Washington Semester" program is offered with American University, and the school has a sister campus in Budapest, Hungary. Athletes compete in the NCAA's Division III and the Centennial Conference, and the school is the location of the summer training camp for the Baltimore Ravens football team. The 160-acre campus has 40 buildings, including six on the National Historic Register.

On July 1, 2002, the school changed its name to McDaniel College. The announcement of the change had been made in January 2002, and the college did a lot of scrambling to soothe disgruntled alumni who opposed the change. The board of trustees had already decided to go ahead before they ever made their announcement, and the new name, in honor of William Roberts McDaniel, was selected and announced in April 2002.
