Favorite Class or Professor and Why

Professor Vira Zhdanovich from the Russian department. She is an amazing teacher and person.

My advice to prospective students...

that it's okay to feel nervous. College can seem intimidating, and it's often a big change. A lot of people are in or have been in the same boat. The most important thing to do is to have faith in yourself.

During my first semester, I wish I would have known...

how much of a difference getting involved on campus can make. Participating in club events is not only a great way to make friends but also has been the source of some of my favorite memories.

Fun Fact

UMBC students have our very own comfort dog, a sweet chocolate lab named Chip. You'll see her at school events or just out and about on the average day.
