What makes UMBC home?

The people for sure. I've met so many wonderful people that really embody what it means to be a Retriever!

My advice to prospective students...

is ask about clubs in your fields of interest! You can make so many friends while also pursuing your passions.

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

that it's okay to struggle a bit in classes; sometimes your best effort is a B instead of an A and that's okay!

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

Playing Candace in a student-written and produced Phineas and Ferb parody musical.

I'm passionate about...

Graphic design is my passion Designing and sewing costumes Spending time with my friends and family Singing Theatre/Acting

I'm involved with...
