How has UMBC helped you grow?

My service-learning experience, tutoring ESOL at the Esperanza Center in Baltimore, shaped my freshman year and life in general.

My UMBC hack is...

cutting through The Commons instead of going around, particularly if I'm cold or running late to class.

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

Scholar Selection Day as a prospective student during my senior year of high school. Going through the campus and hearing Dr. Hrabowski's signature speech truly invigorated me to continue my path and go to UMBC.

What makes UMBC home?

My friends.
