Favorite Class or Professor and Why

History of Modern Philosophy with Dr. Nance is the best class I've taken. The class itself is interesting to me, and Dr. Nance is a wonderful professor who encourages productive discussions in class and takes a strong interest in the well-being of each of his students. This class is a must for anyone interested in philosophy, as it provides a great starting point by going over some of the most influential philosophers and theories of the modern period, which in turn have shaped our current society in any number of ways.

My advice to prospective students...

Getting involved with clubs and student organizations is one of the best ways to network and make the most of your time on campus!

I chose UMBC because...

It's a mid-size school close to a city that has a good academic reputation

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

Self care is just as important as working hard! From the on campus gym to the counseling center, there's many places at UMBC that exist to help you stay in shape mentally and physically, and taking advantage of those resources can help you do your best.

I'm passionate about...
