My UMBC hack is...

if you're ever running late, just walk across the open grass. It makes it so much faster.

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

my last day of the spring semester of my freshman year. It was a wonderful warm day and I remember having such a great time in my classes as I applied what I had learned in some very difficult Chinese tests. I spent a lot of time with all the friends I had made and knew I would miss it all dearly as I rode away to start my summer.

I chose UMBC because...

UMBC felt like home to me. Not only did both of my sisters graduate from here, but it fits the perfect size of a school for me. It has the connections to jobs and faculty and friends like a huge school. But it also has the ease of building professional and personal relationships of a small school.

I'm passionate about...
