Fun Fact

UMBC produces the most African Americans who pursue M.D, Ph.D than any other university in the country.

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.

During my first semester, I wish I would have known...

better study habits as well as trying out new study techniques as soon as I realize that the previous one was not working.

What makes UMBC home?

The relationships that I've made. There is a community for everyone .

I'm passionate about...
