WHAT I LIKED

The environment as well as the academics. It was a very rigorous university that focused mainly on academics. A con was that there was no social aspect to UMBC. UMBC is known as a commuter school and it is. It is a small campus with not much going on socially, however, you will still have great opportunities to make new friends and have a good time as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Not having that much of social life. When you think of college, you also think of all the parties you might attend as well as the social activities, however, at UMBC there wasn't much of that as it was known more as a commuter school for many.

WHAT I LIKED

UMBC works to provide opportunities for students to thrive academically. The professors in the MLLI department do well in tackling key concepts such as syntax and pragmatics, while also passing along options for intern and job applications. UMBC also encourages students to do their own research at the undergraduate level, which has helped prepare me for writing research papers at the graduate level.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Students should be mindful of the steep hills, wildlife, and long lines at the Chick-fil-a.

WHAT I LIKED

I liked that there was a good diversity, and I didn't feel like a minority. The professors can be good and can care, but you need to seek them out yourselves.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You should be wary of the Biology department, they do not care for you.

WHAT I LIKED

Something that I like about UMBC is that I get to attend lectures on the courses so that I can receive notes from my professors. Something that I also like about UMBC is that I get to use office hours so that I can receive help from my professors if I get stuck on a problem. Something that I even like about UMBC is that I get to attend events that are interesting to me, such as attending bingo, trivia, and quad mania.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don’t have anything that I don’t like about UMBC.

WHAT I LIKED

It's a really nice campus and the area around it is full of nice shops and food spots. The bus system is spotty at times but very quick so it's easy to get in and out of Baltimore city quickly. I've never had a professor I didn't love.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Since the majority of the people on campus are commuters it can feel a little dead on the weekends.

WHAT I LIKED

I loved the diversity at UMBC. I found that in every class I had and even walking around on campus, there is some of every class, race, and gender and it makes you feel accepted and welcomed. I also found that every one of my professors was accepting of my viewpoints when we had class discussions and this also translated to the students, you felt heard in small or big group discussions. I also made lifelong friends at this school even though it is considered a commuter school. There are so many clubs and opportunities on campus. The atmosphere includes students who are ready to work and study, but there is also a lot of fun on campus. Mental health is very important and all of my professors took test anxiety into account which was a huge turning point for me when I first began at the school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think that my professors as advisors is a poor decision. I noticed several other students did not have the correct course schedule and it caused them to miss applying to certain classes because there were no more spots, or causing students to enroll in a particular class at later points in their academic career when that is not necessary.
