While I was not looking forward to attending this university for personal reasons, it has surpassed my expectations in the most favorable ways possible. The campus is well-constructed; and also beautiful. The faculty is incredibly welcoming and helpful in achieving what is necessary for you to fulfill your potential at UMBC.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

This school is amazing. I've met so many good friends, the academics are great, all the professors truly want to help you. It feels safe and like a close knit community. It's small enough that it doesn't feel overwhelming, but big enough that you don't feel like you see the same people every day.
