My advice for prospective student is to research all the schools and visit the campus to see which school feels like you belong.
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.
UMBC has helped me grow by making me feel more confident about myself and with my work. When I need I ask for help I go to the tutoring center.
My favorite class was government and politics since the teacher was so nice and made the class fun. The material was rough, but he would make fun about it and will always try to make us laugh even if sometimes what he said was not funny at all.
