3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is only 5% of the student population, but there is a large presence of Greek Life on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Everything is pretty good. It could always be improved, but it is not unbearable.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Very close to the Inner Harbor, but dangerous areas around the outside of campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I rarely hear of people getting caught for the rules they break. However, the parking enforcement is almost too strict.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The weight room is really small and always super crowded. There is not a lot of cardio equipment, and they are all stuck in a hallway upstairs on the balcony.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You have to take the highway to almost any off campus dining option

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I have been able to talk to many people in all types of race, religion, class, sexual orient. it has been eye opening

4 College Sophomore

Academics: as I stated prior, it great to be part of a unique class of people. the best of the best

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have been able to watch a few games at school. what a rush!!

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: my school is the only university which offer Chemical Engineering in the State of Maryland. it's a pretty intense major. It means I get to work with the best of the best

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: there is always something going on, on campus. Student life is always full of fun and adventure. There is always someplace to eat with a variety of food and snacks.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: still trying to find my way around community. but what I have found so far has been great

4 College Sophomore

Majors: there are many people whom share my program. this helps me stay focus

4 College Sophomore

Majors: have not had an internship as of yet. but I plan on applying this year.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have been very satisfied with student housing

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love it here, and I'm glad I came. It's a fun and nerdy campus where if you know where to look you can find some party people. Everyone is focused on academics and understands that those come before the fun. I would choose UMBC again if I could do it all over. I feel like I made the right choice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus seems to be the only way to go at UMBC. Commuters look so unhappy. Dorms are great unless you live in Patapsico basement. Housing process is much easier since it moved online.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Kind of hard to get fast food, each res hall has a list of places that deliver though.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are so many different groups on campus! There is a group for anything and everything.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: No idea, I don't live off campus. I only know one person who lives off campus and he seems good with it.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It took them awhile to get my papers in order and it involved a lot of calling and going down to the school. I worked it out though and the employees were willing to help me.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The weird SEB events. They're enjoyable but always really random and for some reason glowsticks and condoms are always a thing? I like them though, and glow sticks are cool.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: People don't really talk to people they don't know much. Without SEB UMBC student life wouldn't exist.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Everything you need is close to campus.

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. UMBC truly prepares students for real life by giving them the skills, knowledge, and experience to help them become successful professionals in the future.
