Class of 2023

Hometown: Elkridge, MD

Major: History

Secondary Major: Print Media

Minor: Ancient Studies

I chose UMBC because...

I live close to the campus and was able to commute.

Favorite Class or Professor and Why

The History of Medicine with Dr. Chapin. I enjoyed how even though it was a History course, the class was filled with people from majors such as Biology and Computer Science. Sharing a class with students of other majors helped to see other perspectives about History.
