Favorite Class or Professor and Why

It's a tie between Social Media Networking with Dr. Snyder and Costume Design with Prof. Abele. Both professors are extremely passionate about their subject matter and assign fun, yet enriching projects.

How has UMBC helped you grow?

In many of my classes, my professors have helped me find confidence to get outside my comfort zone!
