4 College Senior

Overall Experience: At UMBC, I have had some of the most passionate professors. Most of them are very caring and open to student opinions.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Its been told that having UMBC on your resume would land you great job opportunities. I have experienced this first hand with an internship. The President, Dr. Freeman Hrabowski does an awesome job in bringing in companies and organizations into the school to provide students with job and internship opportunities.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: UMBC is generally a very safe campus to be on, even at night. I have never had a reason to be afraid to walk alone at night on this campus.

3 College Senior

Athletics: UMBC is primarily an academics centered university. Sports teams do exist but the main focus is not on them. We do not have the best facilities seem to be doing pretty well even with the limited resources (Track and Field, Soccer, Swimming)

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Alot of people may see UMBC as boring or dry but UMBC to me is great, its not too big nor too small, and if you find the right people, you can definitely have alot of fun here.

3 College Senior

Diversity: This school prides itself on diversity, but it kind of falls short when more than half of the student body is white and majority of the higher ups are white.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Not much really going on, except vaping. Very popular here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors are willing to accommodate if you have problems and will easily adapt to a schedule if you have to take time off or a weather emergency happens.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Plenty of on-campus police officers and emergency telephones. The school sends out alerts in all forms of communication in order to keep you in the loop in case anything dangerous is happening.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: They have many opportunities to be successful with your degree. But they don't have much of a decent support system for that. They want you to succeed, but you have to want to succeed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have mostly an academic life and I'm yet to explore the social aspects.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm a biology major. A lot of employers come during career day, and hospitals around are very open to volunteers from UMBC.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: there are adequate preventive measures put in place to help reduce the tendency for sexual assaults. I haven't heard of any sexual assaults since I got here.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It would help if they had newer facilities.

3 College Junior

Athletics: could do with more equipments for the average student.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a really good school academically, but the social life isn't very existent. It has a very diverse atmosphere and the students are very friendly.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What can I say? The courses I've taken and the professors I have had are some of the best I have had in my life. I would shout them out right here, but I'm not sure that's allowed, and my English professor announced he was retiring after this year so it's unlikely you'll have him. Just know that you're in good hands.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've got an internship lined up for this fall semester, all thanks to a connection I made with one of my Psychology professors. Just talk to people, keep asking questions, visit the career center or the department office every now and then; opportunities will present themselves at UMBC.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Health Center and the Campus Police are really good at reaching out to the community and to people on campus. I've always felt safe on campus, even in the middle of the night all alone with nobody around.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is decent, but it is on the other side of campus. Oh, and did I mention the school is on a hilltop? Be ready to lose a few pounds hiking to all your classes... :)

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's technically a Division I school, and our soccer team is top notch, but the teams aren't really well supported by the student body or by the leadership (they pared down the programs to focus on better academics). That said, a new athletic center is going up right now, and the current intramurals and clubs are very popular. The facilities we already have are already pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Very glad I came here

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Recruiters come periodically; just make sure to take advantage of this. Career center tries and can be helpful depending on the service. Employers seem to like UMBC students and trust the education

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: glad I live on campus even though the school is primarily commuters

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.
