Class of 2021, We Need You!

Hello Future Retrievers!

CHOOSE UMBC!

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.

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. HOUSING

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.
