3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining hall food isn't the best food, but it is better than some places I've visited. Also, the food places in the Commons Building is pretty good, though the options are fairly limited if you want to stay within the meal plan, so it gets old fairly quickly. All in all, it's pretty good, though it could use a bit of improvement.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a really rewarding experience. It allows you to be really close to your classes without the worry of a long and potentially dangerous commute to classes each day. Also, it's really simple to apply to housing, and you're usually informed of whether or not you obtained the desired housing in as little as one week.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school isn't too strict about a lot of things, with the exception of the honor code and parking. The honor code is because we see ourselves as an honors university, so each student is held up to a very high standard of integrity. The parking is because the space for parking is very limited, and the school mainly comprises of commuting students.

Scholarships: The Financial Aid Office is located on the side of the Library closest to the pond. It's a great place to visit if you're having issues getting the financial aid that you need. And, they always know where to refer you to in the event of them being unable to help you with the issue. The service is very friendly, and I would definitely recommend a visit to their officce, even if you don't have any questions about financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: We are strict about things that keep students safe, but are as lenient as possible when it comes to expression of student views.

5 College Sophomore

UMBC is a great university. Its diversity, high-quality education, and leadership opportunities make it a place where everyone can shine.
