There is no shortage of opportunities here, if you know where to look. Professors and faculty are easily the best part of UMBC, hands down; everyone I've met has been fair, intelligent and easy to approach with questions. Same goes for other students, you know if you ever need help they've got your back. The one gripe I have is the campus culture. There are so many commuter and transfer students that it often feels like two separate social scenes: one for those in dorm and one for those off-campus. Other than that, it is a great place to learn!

Psychology Major – I declared a psychology major at UMBC. The classes offered here for Psychology are great! Many are very interesting, such as Abnormal Psych, Pych of Women, Psychology of Sex and gender, and there's this very interesting Paranormal Psychology class that's taught exclusively over winter session. The only draw back I would say is that the counselors don't really help out too much- I didn't know I could have joined the Psychology Honors club and could have gotten ropes to wear on graduation! I found out on graduation day by a fellow classmate who had joined simply 2 weeks before graduation. There are quite a few opportunities to do research with the professors at UMBC, and the Kennedy Kreuger Institute is just minutes away from campus- which offers many many job/volunteer/interning opportunities for Psychology students! I would say this is a great school to major in Psychology with, just make sure the counselors are telling you about all your options, such as declaring concentrations, joining the psychology honors association, and anything else you are eligible for.

The longer you stay here the more you notice the lack of variety in food selection. The dining hall meals are monotonous. Chick-fil-a lines are longer than all others so it must be a student fav. I generally dislike the food services here , they refill you but they are nowhere near satisfying. After 2 years of campus food,I switched to the smallest meal plan package for those times i'm at an unbearable lowest. I mostly cook for myself now. Although, I am mostly displease with the food offer here I think its great that we have a Starbucks and a sushi bar! P.S The Italian cuisine section needs to stop production, the taste is just upsetting
