Overall

I can not say much about the school yet, because I am starting this fall, but I can say that so far the academic advising, financial aid, and registration departments are excellent. I am transferring from CCBC, and they are MILES better than CCBC's staff! I was expecting long wait times, tedious processes, and a struggle to complete financial aid, and enroll, but I was pleasantly surprised. My academic adviser (who you are required to see before enrolling in your first semester courses) was extremely helpful. I came in expecting to have to pull the information out of her, but she was way ahead of me, with everything already mapped out for me. Then she walked down a few doors to where my major's program director was, and he was waiting for me to look at my transcript! He helped me waive three courses that I had already taken at CCBC, which saved me an entire semester. I also saw a financial aid person, who was able to get me a $1000 scholarship, and a $1000 grant. Overall I could not believe how totally different it was from CCBC because they actually did their jobs!

Academics

From what I was told, class sizes in my program will be 20-25 people. I am not sure about the workload yet. I met the student government association president while waiting in financial aid, and she and her friend were both super friendly and had nothing but good things to day about the academics. They did say that it is not really a party school, although if you live on campus (apartments?),there's a lot to do because its the city. I think that if you aren't interested in learning as much, and want a more "greek"/ party school, opt for Towson, but if you want to get in and get out with a good degree (especially for working adults), this is a wonderful school. There are alot of adults here, which means the classes are less about who is dating who, and more about learning.

College Life

Campus safety is definitely a concern for me. I did see four police officers in one night just patrolling around, so that's good, but I have heard of people being robbed for their smartphones around the campus, because you are literally just walking between city blocks.There really isn't a "campus", just a bunch of building that are all in the same few blocks in Baltimore City. Its right down the street from MICA (which you can actually take classes at while paying the UB tuition price, which is awesome because MICA is CRAZY expensive! See the UB catalog or a registration person to ask, because its not very well advertised). You are a few blocks away from some creepy neighborhoods with boarded up houses, but your also right near alot of great resturants and trendy shops, so like all of Baltimore, its street by street.
