    UMBC is a school that is extremely diverse, intelligent, and different from many of the other college campuses you will see. It is a school truly dedicated to education and the excitement of learning. If you are ready to work and be in a professional setting, UMBC is a great school for you.

    UMBC is a great school especially for STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) majors. Classes and professors are tough but very interesting. Overall, it is a great school.

    The school is a good school that balances our education with your social life. Although they don't have a football team, their intramural teams are good to join for any student who wishes to take part in sports. Also the clubs and organizations are excellent; wish future students the best of luck.

    UMBC is an accredited honors society that has a very diverse and welcoming community. Our STEM (sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics) problem is our strongest feature, but we also have numerous opportunities for students of all disciplines to expand their skill set and conduct research in their chosen field with professionals. We have a strong commitment to encouraging research through programs such as URCAD (undergraduate research and creative achievement day).

    A great academic school with a mediocre campus life and a community college feel. UMBC is one of the best value schools out there for STEM majors but has a lack of university feel. It feels very much like a community college.

    I think that UMBC is an excellent school; it has great academics and an excellent environment. The students and faculty are focused on quality education, no matter what field they are in. The campus is nice, though small and not much of a party school (not that that's a bad thing), and there is a lot of diversity, and everyone seems to get along well for the most part.

    The college is very diverse and unique in it's own way. It a small campus but that helps you navigate all the resources you need efficiently. Number one up and coming university.
