UMBC has an excellent academic atmosphere as well as an amazing president. There are so many different cultures, ethnicities, and perspectives on campus; it offers a rich opportunity to immerse yourself in a new and exciting environment. I would highly recommend this university to anyone who wants an ivy league quality education at an instate price.
