3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police are there when you need them and are usually lurking around campus, but they can not possibly notice everything. Therefore you can not completely rely on them for safety because anything can happen.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not seen any obvious sign of drug exchanges, public smoking or anything of the sort. I do however occasionally get a whiff of it on some individuals, but it does not disrupt my learning in anyway.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am an Accounting Major and so far I have not had much trouble with the work load or difficulty of courses as the school does offer services that offer assistance and help students succeed in their courses.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had any internships on campus, but I am looking to apply.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: We are close to Penn station, which is very convenient for those who live or may want to travel to DC, N.Y, Shady grove e.t.c. We also have access to a variety of cabs that are usually coming from Penn station that can help transport you to where you need to go.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at the University of Baltimore is not a big part of campus life. We have intramural sports, which include, soccer, basket ball and volleyball. However students rarely participate in these activities except for those dedicated sports enthusiasts. The previous years had better student involvement and fan support especially in basketball and soccer, where as the present year has not had much luck. Perhaps we need to advertise these programs better and encourage the younger students, especially to participate.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have a variety of restaurants around campus that sell different types of food which is always a good thing. Nearly all of them offer student discounts which enables students with tight budgets to squeeze in a meal between their hectic classes. However, because it is the city, there are mostly expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Weekdays naturally are the busiest days of the week, especially Mondays through Thursdays because this is when all students do school work. We have about four computer labs in the whole school with a population of roughly 4,000 students so it can be difficult finding a free computer. Students have the most luck if they get to school early in the morning as well as the evening. I often do not have that much difficulty because I usually borrow a laptop from our OTS center so that I do not have to go through the hassle of fighting for a computer.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere at the University of Baltimore is fairly safe as we have reliable campus security. Although we occasionally hear about minor thefts but I have not heard of anyone being hurt for as long as I have been here. The campus is close to downtown, inner harbor which is very convenient as it is a place to unwind, relax, grab a bite to eat especially when you have long breaks in between your classes.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: University of Baltimore does not have on campus housing as most students are commuters. It would be nice if they did, but there is not enough space close to campus to build any other facilities. They do however work with some properties, such as the varsity where students are given some flexibility in using financial aid to pay their rent.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Navigating around campus during unpleasant weather conditions is not as bad because University of Baltimore is a small campus. Getting to and from classes is fairly easy as all the academic buildings are close to each other.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is a lot of bars and clubs to attend

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not seen any serious drug use at the school. everyone seem to be smart and live above the influence.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They are firm in making the students feel safe and holding everyone accountable for their actions.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: The winter can really be distracting and not motivating. A lot of the time class is canceled because of the harsh winter.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It can be challenging at times but they do have opportunities to help in class

5 College Sophomore

Computers: It's so easy for me to get work done.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The bus that runs in my direction is seldom reliable.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers have not let me down yet. The wireless activity is very fast.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It's many opportunities. You just have to stay on top of the workload.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nothing for underage but the Varsity, but I haven't heard about many parties.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Oncoming freshman should turn everything in earlier you could get a scholarship for it.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, we have no dorms. The Varsity too expensive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have a Chipotle, Subway, Pizza place, Italian place, Deli, Sub shop,Sushi, Starbucks, and Potbelly. You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is definitely a lot to get fat from, but they all taste great. Some places give us discounts.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone on campus are so different. This maybe the most diverse school I have been to.

There are many reasons why attending UB is a great experience for students. One, the student-to-teacher ratio is 18 to 1, which is commendable because students can receive feedback and more one-on-one time with professors. The majors and classes are eye-opening and interesting, as well. Another great facet of UB is that it's diverse and transfer friendly. Once students are ready to move on from UB, the Career Center helps students find the right career path to help them land their dream job. Students from all over Maryland and the United States can enroll at UB and have a good academic and social experience.

While the University doesn't have residence life, nor does it have traditional dining halls, the apartments offered in the area are great, and the restaurants are close and feature delicious food. Because there aren't any dorms, students and parents save money because the tuition does not include room and board, meal plans, and other extra fees and expenses associated with traditional schools. Moreover, the tuition is cheaper compared to other Maryland schools, both private and public.
