My advice to prospective students...

is to get involved! It will help you meet people and create great connections!

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!

Favorite Spot on Campus

My favorite spot of campus is the Commons. With the different levels there are numerous resources and activities in this building, as well as great food!

My UMBC hack is...

If you have extra meal swipes, go to markets in Dhall and the commons to get snacks for your room!
