Favorite Spot on Campus

Sitting outside of the Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building (ILSB), our newest building. Sitting outside on the tables with a light breeze and a perfect view of the Quad, Academic Row and The Commons makes me feel like UMBC is my perfect home.

How has UMBC helped you grow?

UMBC has challenged me academically and provided me countless resources at all times. This taught me how to accept challenges, manage my time and learn how to use my resources.

Fun Fact

I am double jointed in my right index finger.

My UMBC hack is...

to have a go to spot on campus where you can solely focus on assignments. Changing up your study location is always a great tip, but having a special spot that I associate with being extra focused has helped me tremendously.
