Favorite Class or Professor and Why

Thus far my favorite class has been my Introduction to Aging class. It has helped me learn so much about the way todays society treats elders and it has changed my perspective. I can't wait to take another aging class.

My advice to prospective students...

is to take it all in and just breathe. College can be really stressful, so just take a moment to breathe and get your thoughts together. Everything will work out in the end.

I chose UMBC because...

it has a small college feel. You can walk around the whole college campus in 30 minutes if you want to. It makes for a great workout.

My UMBC hack is...

wear comfortable shoes. If you have 10 minutes to get from class to class across campus, you can definitely make it, but make sure to wear some comfortable shoes.

I'm passionate about...

All things Disney The Environment STEM Chemistry I love to read (often fiction) Baking
