My advice to prospective students...

is the sense of community on campus is the most important factor in choosing a college. I have felt like a part of UMBC's community since my first campus visit, and I absolutely love it.

What makes UMBC home?

The community! I love that every time I walk across campus, I see someone I know and we stop to talk for a little while.

My UMBC hack is...

get to know your professors. The classes I've enjoyed the most have been those where I've developed a good relationship with the professor.

I chose UMBC because...

I liked the tight-knit community, and it allowed me to stay close to home.

I'm passionate about...
