Fun Fact

I'm a sophomore and I've already changed my minor twice!

I chose UMBC because...

it was my most affordable option while also being comfortably far enough from home.

Favorite Class or Professor and Why

Professor Jordan "Prime" White, who teaches Math 104- Quantitative Literacy. I have never been good at math, but being in this class helped me look at math from another perspective. Professor White is also very helpful and fun when he is teaching; he makes sure everybody understands the topic before moving on.

How has UMBC helped you grow?

UMBC has helped me step out of my comfort zone when it comes to meeting people.
