My advice to prospective students...

is there truly is something for everybody on campus, and so many opportunities! The best advice I was given was to try multiple clubs your freshman year and then narrow them down throughout your time at UMBC to really invest in what you love. It's helped me to try some activities I wouldn't have normally joined.

Fun Fact

I like to sew, crochet, and knit--my grandma taught me to sew and my mom and I learned to crochet and knit together! It's a family thing.

What makes UMBC home?

Being a part of Cru and finding people who think and believe similarly to me has been such a blessing! I feel like I have a second family on campus.
