My most memorable UMBC experience was...

meeting my suite-mates on move-in day during my freshman year and establishing a close friendship with them. Also reconnecting with an old friend from middle school and rekindling our friendship

Favorite Local Shop or Restaurant

Giant is located about 5 minutes away from Campus making it really accessible to get groceries and stock up on supplies. The UMBC transit provides transportation to Giant (and many local stores in the area) free of cost to UMBC students.

My advice to prospective students...

is don't feel stuck to one major or minor. It's ok to not know exactly what you want to do but be willing to explore different fields.
