College Sophomore

Party Scene: I've never been to any parties on the UMBC campus.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't had any problems with the financial aid office. It's been really easy so far. I think it helps if you keep track of your money, like knowing beforehand how much money you need, how much money you can use for financial aid, and how much you've used.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Whenever I eat on campus, I usually have chik-fil-a which is really good, (it IS chik-fil-a) but of course, the only problem are the lines but that's not the Universities fault.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus so I would not know how the campus housing lifestyle is.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have not gone to any parties at this campus.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am not eligible to receive scholarships.

College Sophomore

Campus Food: I have not experienced the variety of food options due to my food allergies.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, nor have I visited the on-campus housing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live in the off-campus housing nor do I have experience with it so I'm not able to review it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The UMBC campus is pretty secluded and we don't have many options for off-campus dining.

Administration: I have not known the campus to be extremely strict on things that don't matter much. At the same time I believe that the students here don't give the Administration much to be strict about. I have not met anyone who has been restricted from something or given some kind of probation unfairly.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not attended any parties at UMBC, therefore I have no knowledge or opinion of it.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: In my experience, the financial aid process has been an ongoing headache. I never received much financial support from the school and for the incoming school year I have not received any aid at all. I have tried to make an appointment with my financial advisor but the financial aid office seems to not want to deal with me. I have gone for support a few times and have found that the students at the front desk are designated to deal with people coming in for financial support and to try as hard as possible to not bother the advisors. With the rise of tuition in the next school year as well as the lack of any grants or scholarships, I might be forced to drop out of school. I am very disappointed that a student like myself who has worked very hard to upkeep a great GPA and who partakes in several campus activities cannot receive the financial aid that I absolutely need to continue my education.

Campus Food: We have a great variety of foods on campus which is great however, most of the food lacks quality especially for the amount of money it costs.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been an amazing experience for myself as far as expanding my social horizon and learning to be a functional member of a community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I barely hear about it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know know much about the Greek life there.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I thought it was okay.

3 College Freshman

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They can get really annoying.I feel like greek life is all about the party and pride of being in a chapter.No one is actually there for the service and making a difference part.

Administration: The fact that they come when your car needs to be jumped is very convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Whenever I have questions about fafsa or anything I do not understand, I email my financial counselor and they respond back immediately. The process is ran very smoothly.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Its the right amount of partying. As much as people trash talk UMBC's party scene, I believe its the right amount and when they happen they are amazing!
