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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is considered to be a commuter school, which means that most undergraduate students prefer to commute, rather than live on campus. As a student that lives on campus, it can get lonely on weekends, when it feels like 90% of the school is at home. We are a serious academic school, especially if you pursue a degree in a STEM field. We are a D1 school, but there is never a huge presence for sporting events.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is a community, not just a school. The atmosphere is welcoming to all walks of life. While the food isn't the finest, Papa John's accepts your student ID cash as payment and Grubhub delivers to your dorm, the library, or anywhere else you might need. The school seems dead on the weekends due to the amount of commuters, but really you just need to know people for parties. Also, there are tons of activities through the student events board and other organizations throughout the week and weekend if you aren't a party person. UMBC is all about academics though. They really want students to fully understand their work. Tutoring, review sessions, office hours for professors and teaching assistants are very easily accessible. Even though the coursework can be challenging, the satisfaction knowing you truly earned the grade makes it worthwhile. UMBC is not just a nerd school, the sports teams always provide for a thrilling time. Though there is a lack of a football team, this is only because the President puts value first. The cost of a football team would limit who could attend UMBC and the President cares about opportunities for current and future students. Overall, UMBC is a wonderful school and you'd be making a great choice to join the #RetrieverNation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think UMBC is a great school to attend because we are strong academically and are culturally diverse. There are many extracurricular activities, clubs, and programs to join that can get you more involved with the school. One downside I have to mention is the lack of parking and how the new event center takes away so much parking, especially from the commuters.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is a great school if you want to excel in your academics. There are plenty of opportunities to participate in religious, athletic, political, academic and cultural extra curricular activities. Do not count on UMBC to be a party school; it most definitely is not one. Despite this lack of partying, the students still manage to have fun and be engaged both academically and socially.
