The Commons! I love spending time studying, hanging out with friends, and grabbing food at the commons. I love how many options there are! Plus I love how many different spots there are to study in.
Keep yourself open to opportunities and new experiences. College is what you make of it, so remember that you truly can thrive anywhere. Keep in mind the community you want in college, and find a school where you feel truly supported and welcomed.
I chose UMBC because of the amazing opportunities provided by the university. For example, there are tons of amazing opportunities for new experiences and learning through the Linehan Scholars Program. Things like study abroad, research grant, and internship opportunities are also an incredible aspect of UMBC.
Oca Mocha! It's a super cute cafe just outside campus, and a great option if you're looking for something off campus, but not too far. Plus they have amazing coffees!
