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.
My favorite class is Introduction to Constitutional Law with Jeffrey Davis! Everyone actively participates in class and it leads to very interesting debates!
Welcome week! It gave me a chance to meet some of my best friends and explore umbc.
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!
