What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, UMBC is a great institution but obviously has its pitfalls. For many professors, it is clear that they are passionate about their subject, but some may place more focus on that passion than the organization of the of the course. Communication between departments to handle problems such as transferring credits is extremely poor and almost nonexistent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed taking classes at UMBC. The professors and staff are helpful and always available to answer my many questions. The courses I've taken are intriguing and the professors generally have open office hours. The campus is open to allow me to participate in research projects and welcoming to me as a non-traditional student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is very academically driven. Classes are rigorous but the teachers are usually available. Dorms are comfortable and there aren't community showers The campus is very small though so don't be surprised to see the same faces everyday. There isn't really any serious sporting events.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC can take a student from any socioeconomic background, give them a quality education, and help them achieve their dreams. It is a great school for academics and you will leaving felling like you are more than prepared for your next step, whether that be a job or more school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County is a wonderful institution which allows students to learn and socialize in what we like to call a brave space. Classes are generally rigorous and professors tend to prepare students for exams and higher level classes. Extracurricular activities such as clubs on campus are active and a great opportunity to meet people and learn outside of the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a transfer student from a university in Boston, I had the opportunity to look at the university from a more experienced lens, relative the the wide-eyed freshman. UMBC has never been an institution known for its raucous social life; students come here to learn and create. That being said, this campus has by far the friendliest and ethnically diverse population I've ever seen. From the ever seemingly omnipresent rock-star President Hrabowski, to the professors, to the cafeteria staff, everyone is genuinely friendly and open. Academically, this university is a hidden gem as it has a rigorous STEM focus and regularly sponsors student-led research. And even though the campus is honestly a ghost town on the weekends, our proximity to Baltimore makes weekend fun quite accessible. Students who are self driven, quirky, intellectually curious, and want all of the resources of a large university without all the noise should consider applying here. This is a unique environment where you have every tool at your disposal take your ideas and ideals and help make them a reality.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is what you make it. There's plenty of resources and opportunities to get involved. I joined student organizations, worked on campus, and lived on a Living Learning Community floor. It's a small school so you'll see familiar faces a lot, but not so small that I didn't see a new face every day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school. It's definitely nerdy, but in a good way. Academics are important, but not to the point of competitiveness. There's a huge support culture, and if you need help in a class or anything, people will not hesitate to lend a hand. The class sizes are not too big, and it is possible for every single professor you have to know who you are. (Attending regular office hours is important). Overall, I love the vibe here. It's peaceful, but we get lit when the moment arises.
