Explore Deep Creek Lake & Western Maryland

Located on the shore of Deep Creek Lake, McHenry is nestled in the hills of Western Maryland. With just a short drive from I-68, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for recreation, arts, history, and local shopping. Once a student, we encourage you to step away from campus every now and then, and discover what’s to love in the Appalachian Mountains.


Now that you have learned about the area, come visit Garrett College! While you are here, we will take you on a detailed tour around campus. Expect to be on campus for at least an hour and a half. You can meet with Admissions, Financial Aid, and sometimes Faculty (depending on their availability and teaching schedules). Feel free to come prepared with questions.
