Grit Guide at University of Maryland, Baltimore County


Class of 2023

Hometown: Towson, MD

Major: Biological Sciences BS

My advice to prospective students...

is to join the extracurricular activities offered by UMBC. You will make so many great friends to support you and do fun activities with. Clubs, research, and leadership positions also look great on a resume if you want to apply for internships early on in college.

Favorite Class or Professor and Why

Psychology of Learning (PSYCH 210) with Dr. Rajaraman. He was a very kind, understanding, and funny professor and made the class enjoyable while also teaching us a lot of interesting content!

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

having a cookout with my friends at nighttime. There are grills and a volleyball court behind the Chesapeake dorm and all of my friends gathered there one night to grill hotdogs and hamburgers, play frisbee and volleyball, and enjoy each other's company.
