    For the most part the people, both students and faculty, are outstanding and are always willing to go out of their way to help you when asked. There are tons of events going on on the campus during the day and at night ranging from Open Mic Nights - where our talented student body displays their musical skills by rapping, singing, reciting poetry, or playing various instruments - to karaoke and ice cream socials. There are a few campus parties (some school-sponsored and others thrown by students) but they never cause any serious problems. UMBC is nothing like College Park in terms of a party school which can be a good and bad thing at times but as long as you get out and meet cool people you will always find ways to have fun. All in all, UMBC has a small-community feel to it and is nice for students that do not want to live too far away from home or feel like just a number among many students. The faculty will get to know you by name and genuinely care about your well-being. I have personally connected with so many faculty members in my first year that I know I will stay in contact with in the future.

    I like being at UMBC because there is a lot of diversity in the students. They have loads of things to do on and off campus. They do alot of bus trips to New York City and Philadelphia that are very cheap.
