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!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Although there is a variety, many of the places are uncommon. Students do not want to eat at places they have never heard of.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus but I have many friends living on campus and so far they think its great. Theres some trouble in the actual housing process.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I commute from home so I wouldn't know the quality of the off-campus housing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I rarely eat at restaurants so my rating wouldn't be applicable.

College Freshman

Administration: I'm not exactly sure how strict the school is. If you follow the rules you won't have any problems.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was very involved in high school and got excellent grades. UMBC rewarded me with a nearly full scholarship.

Administration: If they would change their winter closing policies, it would be similar to most other schools

College Senior

Scholarships: I have never received a scholarship from the school

2 College Senior

Party Scene: A very academic school, so not too many people party every week. The best thing to do if you were interested in partying is join an athletic team or greek life

3 College Senior

Campus Food: College Cafeteria food is ok nothing special about food here

Party Scene: What parties? The school is anal about drugs and alcohol, everyone here is socially awkward, and people go home after 3 pm.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I ordered a cheeseburger and they gave me one with mold on the bread. I gave them another chance and they quickly gave me one with raw meat and expired cheese. Pretty much the only thing there is to eat is the tenders and fries combo, and they make it in small batches despite the fact that it's all anyone wants, so you have to wait in line for 15-20 minutes, then push your way through a crowd of people who don't know who is first in line to get their food.
