What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that the campus is beautiful, accessible and welcoming. However, there is no campus life and the professors make the STEM introductory level classes ridiculously difficult in order to weed out scholarships. This is a school of academically talented people and in my general chemistry courses there was 1/8 passing averages on exams. That's absurd. Oh and the food sucks.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Good school so far. Current president is a bit of a star gazer politician. Invokes every buzzword and turns it into a thing. Gets awards for innovations. Students disagree. But hey I guess his peer reviews pay his salary. Chemistry school is all messed up. Would avoid this school if that’s your major (or premed or biology). They’re “teaching” flipped classroom. Which means to them- load you up on graded homework and quizzes, then go to lecture and do the same. No instruction whatsoever in class. They call it “weeding out”.. aka sending people off to blue collar jobs and different majors. Why pay a school to teach yourself?!? Seems assinine. Huge fail rate. Lots of drop outs. Then they must break with policy to curve the class like crazy to get a 60% pass rate (on a 100 level chem). Other departments don’t have this problem YET. But if the school head has his way we’ll all be teaching ourselves at the metacogmition center from ipads. The campus is nice. Parking is a bit distant. It’s a ring around the school. A lot of the on campus students cheat the syatem and fake parking passes to avoid paying for resident parking, but that’s being fixed. Most of the faculty seems young. Energetic yes, experience no. It’s a tradeoff. It’s a good school for Maryland and the price is right.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is a wonderful school in a somewhat quiet Baltimore County area. At times we can have fun; however, the students here are also driven to success and the president of UMBC is known to make himself accessible. He roams around the campus and ensures everything is operating as it should be and is a very inspiring individual.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school very much. At UMBC, I feel extremely supported, almost as if my professors, mentors, and friends are a part of my family. Additionally, I cannot tell you how many times I have left a meeting or event feeling empowered and ready to talk about it with my friends. UMBC really prepares students to be conscious, innovative, and kind contributors to society.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Currently I am Aa highschool senior that has came to some of the functions. One of the functions I attended was the Meyerhoff Scholars Weekend. THis was fun, inclussive, and very encourging to new students. From a more day to day aspect, the campus looks very clean and nice. The cafiteria I ate at did not have a ton of variety of food but it was still yummy!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Maryland-Baltimore County is a great school that trains and prepares you for your future career. The teachers are really kind and care about you, many times teachers will go out of their way to help students understand a topic or prepare for an exam which really makes a difference on test day, because you feel more prepared and do better too. Overall good choice!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of University of Maryland Baltimore County is that it has been a pleasant experience. People are friendly and it is easy to make friends because of the amount of students in each class. The campus is inviting through the different events that are hosted. Although this school is known to be more of a commuter school, I spend most of my days here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For my major, biochemistry/biology, this school has a great educational system. However, I know many comp sci and business majors have a tough time here due to lack of attention and funding towards majors that are not stem. The campus and student life is also very sad. There's never anything to do besides studying. And don't get me wrong, I value education immensely but as a person, I'm sure no one wants to just study 24/7 and there's seriously just not much else to do here to help you relax or unwind. There's no fun extracurricular activities and the campus is closed off from everything else so you can't just leave campus to get food or anything unless you have a car. As much as I like my classes and professors, it really feels like a prison here. (I'm transferring to UMD in the fall)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Maryland-Baltimore County is a wonderful school if you are a STEM major, the academics are exceptional in focusing on areas of the biological sciences. Although the campus is not as big and it is a commuter school, the sense of community is warm and friendly. The environment is welcoming, the school has a combination of great academics and a good sense of a community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great academic opportunities and new facilities within the field of cyber security. The school encourages students to grow and learn by setting high standards but providing all the resources and support needed to achieve this goal. There is also a sense of cohesiveness among students and faculty.
