4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I found housing about a week before the semester began thanks to the school classified ads. There were a lot of people advertising, and there was a great variety in the places available and the pricing, depending on the building and other factors. The first unit I looked at was at a luxury apartment, so that was definitely expensive. The second was a room at an old rowhouse, so it was cheap but it was a considerable walk from the school. The one that I'm living in right now is a room at a "boarding house" (two rowhouses converted into one) for UMB students, and it was cheap and really close to the school. Safety was a concern, but that's because the school's in Baltimore City. Thankfully, the streets are well-lit and there's plenty of cops everywhere.

Off-Campus Dining: There's a couple of food carts off-campus, and there's several fast food places close by, like Potbelly, Panera Bread, McDonald's, and Nando's. The walk is not too far, so that's good. There's also a couple of local cafes and deli places, but I haven't been to those yet. No student discounts, I believe.

Administration: The administration is pretty strict with their policies and like to keep it updated. I like that they not only care about academic issues (e.g. plagiarism) but also social issues like sexual harassment and gender equality. I'm not too familiar with other areas of strictness, though.

College Junior

Party Scene: I personally don't go to any parties, because I usually have a ton of schoolwork to attend to.

College Junior

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid.

Campus Food: There is a variety of food options, including gluten-free and low-calorie stuff, which is great. The taste of the food is also good, and the fact that the ingredients are locally sourced is a plus for me. However, there's no meal plan with the tuition, and the food can be pretty pricey, so that's frustrating sometimes.

Administration: Seems typical of any university

College Junior

Greek Life: I know nothing about the Greek life at UMBC. I also don't care about it.

3 College Junior

Academics: Pretty basic, typical. Professors are nice, helpful. Workload varies on number of classes, but all seem intense. Registration process was frustrating, difficult to understand.

College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't live on or near campus, nor am I from the area. Where most restaurants are located I don't know. I only know what is in my city, my hometown, and what is in Ellicott City.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't interacted enough with the administration, but they can be nit-picky.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of student discounts, pretty good food if you ask the locals where to go.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: 'Parties' are gatherings of people in dorms who get drunk off of two shots and then fall over and bum around.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: UMBC has paid for my academic experience and a little more. I only have to pay for my room.
