Nightlife: There's not much fun to be found in clubs

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food isn't always my favorite but they feed us and ensure that we can access dining facilities at various hours.

2 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics at my school is pretty bad because my school is strictly an academic school. Everyone is more focused on their schoolwork which is why there is not much school spirit and fan support.

1 College Senior

Nightlife: UMBC, is strictly an academic school so there are really no parties here. Overall, the nightlife at this school is very poor and it doesnt help that umbc is a commuter school. As a result of this, there are not a lot of people that are on campus on the weekends which makes it hard to throw any parties.
