Fun Fact

I have lived in 3 out of our 6 residence halls and 3 out of our 4 apartment communities.

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

my roommate throwing me a surprise birthday party at the end of freshmen year. It was the weekend in the middle of finals week but it was nice to take a little break from exams and celebrate my birthday and the end our first year with my friends.

How has UMBC helped you grow?

I have learned that things may not always go according to plan and that is okay! We can always adapt and adjust to our circumstances!

I'm involved with...
