UMBC was a good compromise for me and my parents: not too far from home, but far enough that I could be independent; good programs; and a campus that wasn't too big. It really turned out to be a great fit!
Taste Tea in Arbutus! The bubble tea is delicious and there's a wall with sticky notes from other customers :)
The chairs and tables on the first floor of The Commons. The sun shines through the windows and skylights really nicely there.
UMBC has given me tons of educational experiences to help me grow as a student, leadership opportunities to help me grow as a professional, and friends to help me grow as a person :)
