3 College Junior

Overall Experience: EVERYONE is a science major here. STEM classes are very difficult. If you're into arts don't come here.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Other than soccer and lacrosse, nothing else is important here.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its okay. Very boring and empty at times because everyone here just focuses on their school work. Huge commuter school so campus is completely bare during the weekend.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have only attended the school's orientation, but from what I have seen thus far, the staff and students seem to really care about their work and enjoy what they do.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Even though I haven't started my UMBC experience yet, I still look forward to my stay there because of what I had experienced during my first visit and during my orientation. There study ethics are amazing and yet UMBC still knows how to have fun. They are spirited and give chances to the "nerds" and "geeks" of the school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UMBC takes their time to get to know you and what you want to do in the future. Meeting my advisor gave me a clear idea as to how much effort they put into answering all your questions to the utmost satisfaction.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The first time you visit UMBC, you know you will feel safe. Every single student already attending UMBC were supportive, generous, and thoughtful to us upcoming freshmen. They took their time to get to know us and it was worth my time.

UMBC's security is caring towards their students and the administration actually encourages students to get involved in events whether debates, protests (friendly ones), and much more.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: UMBC allows every single student to be as comfortable as they can. If they aren't comfortable, then administration will do the best they can in helping.

It's safe and everyone is usually very happy with their dorming.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: UMBC is indifferent about Greek life. As long as the right amount of studies is put into your life, then its fine.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: At UMBC, from what I have heard, athletics isn't as big but still allows athletic-based students to accomplish their goals. UMBC is more about studying and getting to know people. Chess is like football at UMBC.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Based upon my years of high school, I have enjoyed a fun yet industrious year as a senior and now that I will venture on to college, I believe that I will continue to strive and be a great individual. School for me has had a balance of fun and work. UMBC will be the exact same thing.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: this really isn't a problem in campus
