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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A nice school. The teachers thus far have been good and they were there to help when I needed it. I've also found all classes thus far to be helpful. The food is also good, and you can get it from several places on campus. There's also an on campus book store that tends to sell text books and other materials you may need, so life there is overall convenient. The only problem is that sometimes people are loud at night and keep me from sleeping. There are these "quiet hours", but they're not always enforced.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County is the house of grit. Grit is the one thing that everyone apart of the diverse student population has in common. This spirit is quite contagious, infecting everyone with more courage and tenacity to face their problems. UMBC is definitely not a perfect school, but it is clear that there is a ceaseless drive to improve. Everyone, from the students to the president and professors, is passionate about our school and making our community a better place. I wholeheartedly recommend UMBC because everyone coming to UMBC leaves a better person.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is an amazing school. It is truly a welcoming community with many individuals that are always very exited and happy to be there. It is very diverse so there is a chance to experience a lot of different foods and people from different backgrounds. My interest in other cultures has increased drastically since being at UMBC. The school is brilliant when it comes to academics. The professors are extremely enthusiastic about teaching and are very good at it. The academic environment is challenging and does really good with preparing its students for the professional world. Outside of classes, UMBC does many awesome events that bring together the community. They continue to create different events that keep the students engaged and enjoying the school. UMBC is also an aesthetically pleasing area to be in. The gardening is a sight in itself as well as a beautiful pond. There are many areas that students can get together to study or just hangout. I love the school and I would not change the decision I made if I had to do it again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Aside from parking and construction issues, I really love it here. It’s easy to find a group of people to hang out with and the campus is easy to walk around. I felt comfortable there within a week of classes starting. You can find many student clubs and organizations and the food is great because there’s a ChickFilA and Starbucks I’m campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is a great to school to attend. Many of the professors are readily available and most are open to making time to see their students. There is always a club or activity to partake in and the students are welcoming for the most part. The campus is slightly separated from outside activities and the campus transportation is good, but not great. Overall, UMBC is a wonderful university with many programs for different majors that engages its students and I am happy to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it there. It's not huge. It's a diverse campus. They offer many services and provide plenty of emails to let me know about what there is to offer. I can easily connect to students and teachers through email on blackboard. I am a commuter and they offer services to connect other commuters with me.
