What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is a great school. Honestly, I am so glad I chose to come here. It is easy to become involved in different organizations, clubs, and other activities. You meet new people and form close bonds in your first year of attending. I also believe the professors are great and it is a rigorous school but hard work, dedication, campus resources, and professors help you get through it. College is what you make of it. It's your decision whether you want to get involved or close yourself off. I think that determines whether you will enjoy your experience or not.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good, challenging school academically. It's a medium sized school so class sizes vary. There are a lot of good attributes to UMBC, it's academically demanding and therefore you know you are getting a good education - if you put in the work. The social scene is not huge, many students go home or out on the weekends and there isn't too much extra to do. Overall, it's a good school for your education, but maybe not your social life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMBC is a very academic-heavy school, and is a fantastic choice for anyone interested in STEM fields. Although the school is fairly small and is comprised of mostly commuters, there are plenty of Greek Life, service, and vocational groups and clubs to get involved with. The school has a great athletic center, even though athletics aren't emphasized much. Most of the professors are phenomenal, well-accredited, and genuinely want their students to learn and succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school feels like home when I step foot on the campus. The environment is warm and inviting, and there is a place for everyone somewhere. We are a heavy STEM school, but just built a brand new Performing Arts and Humanities building so we are supportive of all majors. Many of the housing has just been rebuilt so the dorms and apartments are pretty nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love this university. I am not the type to party, and I wanted to go to school for the academics primarily. UMBC definitely has challenging (in a good way!) academics. I feel that, when I get my degree, I will have truly earned it. As far as my social experience on campus, it is definitely dependent on the amount of effort you have put into socializing. I know people who feel like they know everyone on campus, and I have friends who think that the school is totally dead. I have found myself in the middle of that, sort of accidentally. I am an introvert, but I joined several clubs "just because" and have found myself really enjoying it. Overall, I think this is a fantastic school, but it is not for everyone. Come here if you want superior academics and do not mind putting a little effort into making friends!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

3/5 - great academics (STEM programs), but socially dry and boring. There's parties usually happening on the weekends and off-campus. But there's nothing happening on campus on weekends, so everyone goes home. Campus is deserted in early mornings and after 7-ish because there's nothing happening.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that UMBC is a great school; nothing too crazy really happens here. Everyone tends to keep to themselves, but there are definitely a lot of friendly people around. Everyone has a lot of school spirit; however, there is no huge "sports culture" among the student body.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been a student at UMBC since 2014/2015. I transferred from a community college, and my transition was made very easy and manageable thanks to the amazing student services offered by UMBC. The classes are always interesting, and the professors are more than willing to divert from the day's lesson to listen to what the students have to say regarding a variety of topics. There is always a friendly atmosphere on campus, I have never felt unsafe attending any of my classes. The professors are always willing to meet with you or answer any questions you might have. I have sent emails at ungodly hours of the night to receive immediate responses from my professors. I have always felt welcomed by my professors and classmates. The campus is always active. There is definitely not a lack of activities to do and events to attend. All of the administration and student service members go above and beyond in order to help you, no matter how difficult your problem or question may be. I love attending UMBC.

Amazing opportunities

UMBC is a university diverse in its student body, academic opportunities, and social experiences. Students are continually challenged to be their best selves whether in the classroom or out creating memories on campus. I grew so much as a person at UMBC and my leaderships skills were greatly shaped by the supportive and innovative community. I would recommend UMBC to anyone who is looking for a home away from home that is structured to help all students achieve their goals, even ones they haven't realized yet.
