Celebrating her graduation from a psychology program at the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown on Tuesday, Danielle Donovan said she liked the university's “small-town feel” and affordability. Donovan, 23, a Williamsport High and Hagerstown Community College graduate, said she considered attending Shepherd College, but found the West Virginia school too expensive and its classes too sporadic.
