4 College Senior

Facilities: The student life is awsome.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I hate the greek life at our school.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are good, the social atmosphere is great, and the cost is cheap. Living on campus is very convenient and the housing process is easy.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Majority of the students on campus are involved on campus.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Safety isn't an issue on campus. There are a myriad of police officers that stay on campus and are very friendly. There is also a police station on campus. A new student organization has recently become a part of the university that is deeply involved in the safety of not only the students, but the faculty as well. Although there is campus crime, an email or notification is always sent to alert the students to insure that everyone is safe. Most of the time I feel safe on campus during the day and the night time; I usually walk with at least another person when it gets darker. There are lights along every walkway as a safety precaution. Campus safety is very important to the university.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Men's soccer and basketball games are the only sports that students will attend. School spirit is mediocre at best. The athletic facility is very nice and filled with a variety of equipment that the students can use and is open for most of the day. There are many student athletes that attend the school and they seem like really nice people.

3 College Senior

Facilities: When it comes to studying and achieving a higher grade point average, the library and study areas are always full. Many students spend a numerous amount of time trying to receive the highest grade possible for a class, which is always a good thing. However, there is an obvious lack of extra-curricular activities that makes the campus a bit dull and too serious. There is also a lack of promotion for extra-curricular activities, which makes students miss out on some of the fun that comes along with being in college.

Off-Campus Housing: Very helpful at finding roommates and housing off campus

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The ladies and gentlemen at my school are highly intelligent and seem to be interested in not only academics but also extra curricular activities. Each person has their own fashion sense that ranges from classy and chic to bizzarre and eccentric.

5 College Senior

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Have not heard many stories.

3 College Senior

UMBC is a great university. Its diversity, high-quality education, and leadership opportunities make it a place where everyone can shine. UMBC’s is small enough so students won’t feel like just a face in the crowd, but it is big enough for all students to find something they may be interested in. You can mingle with students from 120 different countries, and do everything from attend Bhangra classes to Shabbat dinners. Education is top-notch here, and classes are taught by experienced professors who also dedicate a lot of time to research. The curriculum is always up-to-date and interesting, and UMBC has excellent programs, especially for students looking to major in the arts, sciences, or engineering.

The numerous leadership opportunities available in student government, clubs, and the Shriver Center help prepare students for their future careers, and the University often has programs to help promote leadership among students, such as retreats for current leaders or anyone looking to gain leadership skills. The Shriver Center offers students a variety of resources and tools, such as resume help or assistance finding co-ops, internships, or jobs upon graduation.
