What makes UMBC home?

As a transfer student, UMBC's events played pivotal roles in acquainting myself to other students fairly quickly and has provided comfortable learning and living environments.

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

performing as a dancer in the Hispanic Latino Student Union's semi-formal cultural showcase El Encuentro.

How has UMBC helped you grow?

Because the UMBC campus is so diverse, I've been able to engage and learn from students of all nationalities.

Favorite Spot on Campus

The 7th floor of the library because it offers a wide range of MAC computers installed with adobe software, which is essential to Media & Communication Studies majors.
