I've heard a lot of acronyms over the past 3 years while at UMBC, such as You Must be Chinese which I think is false. There is a lot of diversity on campus, however I have not met a lot of students who are Chinese. Another popular acronym I've heard from students is You Made a Bad Choice. However, on the first day of freshman my orientation, I was told by many staff members that "You have Made the Best Choice".
1. That UMBC is filled with Asian students.
2. That the weekends suck.
3. That is it not a party school.
3a. That a UMBC party consists of students sitting around in a circle in their dorm and drink enough until they get drunk and pass out.
4. That UMBC is a science and math school.
5. That we are all nerds.
There really aren't a lot of stereotypes of UMBC from people outside of UMBC, most people have either never heard of it, think it is a branch campus of College Park, or think it is a community college.
Stereotype that it is largely asian.
