Major: Bioinformatics

I chose UMBC because...

it is one of the few schools that offers Bioinformatics as a Bachelor's Degree.

During my first semester, I wish I would have known...

that Google Calendar exists! It has helped me manage my time better and be more involved in campus activities.

How has UMBC helped you grow?

The people on campus- students, staff and faculty alike have shaped me into who I am. By being surrounded by great minds, I have grown in my field and gained professional development skills.
