What makes UMBC home?

The campus! To me it's the perfect size, you'll always run into people you know but there's always a chance to meet new people!

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

how many resources the school offers. There are so many tutoring and resource services for students! The writing center is a great option for students, plus it's free!

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

Welcome week! It gave me a chance to meet some of my best friends and explore umbc.

I chose UMBC because...

The size and academic resources! To me, the campus is the perfect size. Everything is not a far walk but there is always something new to see. At UMBC the faculty truly want to help. I reached out to faculty before I was a student here and they went out of their way to help me! Now as a student here, they are just as eager to help.
