COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Students across the region are headed back to campus for another year of learning.

Returning students at the University of Maryland tell WTOP they are excited for their classes and to be back on campus. Several sophomores say better planning and a clearer idea of what can fit in a dorm room — and what cannot — has helped make the moving process much easier and less stressful for themselves and their families.

We would love to see your back-to-school photos, whether you are starting kindergarten or your final year of graduate school, by emailing us at talkback@wtop.com, tweeting them to @WTOP, or by sending them through the WTOP smartphone app.
