    I know I am getting the best education possible at UMBC, but on top of that I also get the greatest support from my professors. I am enjoying every second at UMBC, and I know that choosing to attend this school was one of the best decisions of my life. If there is anyone out there looking for a college for your next step in life I would highly recommend University of Maryland-Baltimore County.

    In three sentences, UMBC is a school that gives students a rigorous education. The campus always offers fun, engaging activities every day of the week. UMBC is full of awesome people who are ready to help (whether it be directions to your next class or a recommendation for the best pizza on campus).

    Every student at UMBC is very dedicated, it is clear that everyone wants to be here for the right reasons.The professors are phenomenal, during lecture some of them can be a little intimidating but if you go to office hours then theyre not as bad as they seem! The size of the campus is perfect, its big enough in the sense that you can meet new people everyday but small enough that you can give yourself 15 min to get to each class

    Its a perfect school for those who prefer smaller schools. Allows people to make friends easier than those who are at larger schools. I feel that programs that happen around the school are easier to go to due to it being a small school.

    Nice campus, though not the traditional scholarly buildings. Very walkable, and the classrooms look amazing.

    This is a great school! I love the campus and the atmosphere; I have heard nothing but great things about it! My brother currently attends and I am considering attending myself next year when I graduate high school in June.
