My most memorable UMBC experience was...

after my first class of the day, I would sometimes walk with a friend to their next class and this always put me in such a good mood.

I chose UMBC because...

UMBC is a perfect size and has a real sense of community in that the people at UMBC are fun, friendly, and driven to succeed.

My UMBC hack is...

in the library, there's an Einstein Bagels which is open every day of the week and weekend. If you're a morning person, you can use your meal plan to get a bagel and coffee and then study at the nearby tables.

My advice to prospective students...

is college can be a lot of fun but has a lot of distractions so it's important to balance the fun stuff with the work you need to do for your classes.

I'm passionate about...
