Hello Future Retrievers!
Less than 48 hours away you will be making one of the most important decisions in your life. What is that important decision you may ask? Well, I will tell you! May 1st is the deadline to accept your admission to UMBC and officially become a part of the RETRIEVER FAMILY. I know that for some of you this is a difficult decision, so I have come up with five reasons why UMBC is the place to be.
- OUR TOP NOTCH FACULTY
The professors at UMBC are unlike any other and have an unusually strong commitment to teaching undergraduates. They have been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as #5 for Best Undergraduate Teaching. We just so happen to rank before highly acclaimed universities such as, Stanford, Brown, and Yale!
- GREAT LOCATION
UMBC is located on 530 acres 15 minutes from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and 30 minutes from Washington, D.C. BWI Airport is five minutes away, as are AMTRAK and light rail stations. WE ARE RIGHT OFF OF I-95.
- OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESEARCH
UMBC’s strength and success as a research university is founded in our signature approach to inclusivity in the scholarly process and our nimble responsiveness as a partner with other research organizations. Independent research under the mentorship of UMBC’s dedicated, talented faculty members can spark a student’s lifelong interest in interdisciplinary learning.
- AWESOME STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS
We have over 250 student organizations that created and run by our students. They offer a wide array of opportunities to get involved on campus through the interest and causes you are passionate about.
We have 10 on-campus communities, all of which are fully furnished with wireless internet, carpeted floors, monitors to control your temperature, and all rooms are suite-style. You will not have to share a bathroom with the entire hall here! You only have to share with one with you suite mates. Amazing Right?!
Those are just a few reasons why everyone should choose UMBC. We are excited to meet all you at orientation this summer. Remember… Do the right thing, and choose UMBC.
