    - Get out and make your college experience great! Do not expect parties and opportunities to be right in front of you - Make friends and connections -Attend the career fairs, even as a freshman! -Prioritize and organize your life!! This is not the school for High School nonsense. -Create lasting relationships with professors and mentors. -Know that half of your friends are probably commuters, and if you intend to live on campus, you should work out a plan to stay in touch!!

    If you're serious about STEM achievement, this is the school for you. Classes are hard, and internships and on campus jobs are competitive, but if you're the type of student to put your head down and work, you can come away with the a degree from a very promising university. UMBC has earned its spot among top national STEM schools, and with good reason.

    See if you can arrange a face to face meeting with an advisor from the department (or several departments if you are not sure about your major). Ask questions, take a tour of the campus, really check it out before you make any final decisions.

    Some tips for prospective students: The course load can be hard, depending on what you take; so, I would recommend taking fewer credits your first semester (maybe 12, which is usually 4 classes) to make it easier on yourself. Also, if you have any problems, don't be afraid to ask people for help. Everyone I've met on campus has been really nice and totally happy to help out.

    Do well in High School. UMBC is known for its hard classes, but the classes are so much more interesting especially classes specific to your major. The workload is dependent on what kind of classes you are taking but I didn't find the work any more difficult than what I had In High School.
