My most memorable UMBC experience was the first night I stayed, and it was welcome week there were fireworks and I remember calling my parents and them saying that I look happy, and I told them I was excited for this new journey.
Favorite restaurant has to be long horn since I grew up going there for my either my birthday or one of my parents.
My advice for prospective student is to research all the schools and visit the campus to see which school feels like you belong.
I chose UMBC because I feel like I belong I don't feel overwhelmed by people and classes that I am attending. The event is not overwhelming as well they make you feel like it is a family event.
