What is your overall opinion of this school?

At the University of Maryland Baltimore County(UMBC), academics are very important. One would probably find more students at the library than at a soccer game. However, sports are on the rise on campus. UMBC is a huge science school, but students in other departments, like the arts and political science, do very well. Overall UMBC is a great school and is very diverse but is not for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a college that is both quiet and loud. Every year we grow to be better and more known by the people around us. Although the dining facilities could use some work, there are buses that lead out from campus down to Baltimore, where the options are endless. The bus service is free for students, and is a wonderful place to enjoy or to relieve stress. By saying this college is quiet and loud it can be explained that we are very academically strong, which does not lead to much activity, but when the time comes to support out college we go all out to do so. For upcoming students, the University of Maryland- Baltimore County is a great school when it comes to academics and creativity, but does lack in social activity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as though UMBC is an exceptional school, with a great variety of academic programs, especially for STEM fields. The rigor and expectations at UMBC are certainly high, but not unattainable. It is indeed true that a lot of dedication, focus, and willingness to overcome challenges will be needed to succeed at UMBC. But students are never alone. Professors are always working to ensure that they can be of as much help to students as they possibly can be. There are also many study groups and resources made available by the faculty to help students excel academically. Although UMBC is known as a “nerdy school,” there are plenty of ways to have fun on campus. Aside from the numerous extracurricular clubs and phenomenal athletic teams, (not to mention our big win in this year’s March Madness tournament when we defeated a No.1 seed basketball team), student organizations are always planning social events where students can get an opportunity to mingle and enjoy themselves. I appreciate how focused the students at UMBC are, and everyone’s willingness to help each other better understand material. We prioritize school, and want to see our peers succeed as much as we want ourselves to. For anyone interested in pursuing a career in STEM, I would absolutely recommend attending UMBC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In general, University of Maryland - Baltimore County is an amazing school, filled with school spirit and scholarly people. I would highly recommend this school to people who are focused on learning in a small setting. Although I am just a freshmen, I have already started loving the campus and the people there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My university is a great place to be. I am able to receive help in academics and take advantage of the many research opportunities. I am also able to interact and grow along with students who share my culture and my Christian beliefs. I would definitely recommend this place as you are able to get a stellar education but also grow socially.

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!
