If you come from a traditional background, youQuite BrightPreMed and Medical
If you come from a traditional background, you could very well enjoy this school. If you are a first-generation college student however, attending this University will be a great challenge... although that can be said about attending any college. However, this University especially is a machine, large and ruthless. You need to advocate for yourself at all times on this campus. Administration, departments and within the University can get pretty scattered and disorganized; communication between them is completely your own responsibility as well as knowing the policies of the individual departments or programs which may conflict but they will not tell you. Actively advocating for yourself in every step is essential in order to progress at this University.

This is a VERY big school.BrightPublic Health
This is a VERY big school. If you live on north campus there is a 20 minute walk to classes on the Mall. Most of your tuition is spend building new stuff , from buildings to the flowers on the ground. Which the grounds get maintained every other week and once a week during the hot months. Making friend is okay , if you are greek it becomes 10xs more easier but generally there is a friend for everyone. Outside of that , not so much. You cant really find a group of people that easily. Most people who come here know at least one person already.Classes are HUGE, especially most gen eds you have to pay extra attention if your professor does not speak English. Another thing is that it lives up to its name . CP is a very big party school . Actually if there is ever a thing of partying too much they take the cake. Most people have fake Id's so that is a way they happen to get into stuff. It's not a bad school you just have to find your place here.

I am an undergraduate nursing student at UMBBrightNursing
I am an undergraduate nursing student at UMB and im writing this to tell you if you are an undergrad between the ages of 19-22 and looking for a good college experience then DO NOT COME HERE.

I'm an out of state student and transferred to UMB because i got into their nursing program which happens to be one of the best in the country. I wish i would have taken the time to at least visit the school before making a decision because if i did i definitely would have never came.

Social life: Youre looking for a social life? well youre deff not going to find it here. The word "social" doesnt exist in the minds of UMB students which is probably due to the fact that the average student is 27 years old since UMB is considered more of a graduate/professional campus. At least half the people in my program are married,have kids, and already have multiple degrees which sucks considering that im only 20 years old working on my 1st degree. My old university was a huge and well known party school so to come from that to here was a major blow. And the fact that baltimore is literally the most boring city i've been to does not help. Oh, and also this school is a huge commuter school si that makes it even worse.

Academics: This school is challenging academically so if youre not ready to put in work and study almost every day of the week then dont bother coming. I will say that one thing i like about the school is that i feel challenged every day and i know that graduating from a top school like this will make it easier for me to get into grad school. I've never worked so hard just to make B's in my whole life.

Surrounding City: Baltimore has got to be one the lamest cities on the east coast. Maryland in itself is a very boring state and once you leave baltimore and get past towson everything becomes super country. The weather isnt great, winters are cold there was a snow storm even in mid-April. It's very gloomy during the winter at one point i recall going almost 2 weeks with no sun. I got so pale to the point where i almost looked white and i'm that was a problem. One thing i will say i like about the city however is the proximity of baltimore to actually cool places such as DC, NYC, Philly, etc. so when i have time i like to venture out to those cities.

Conclusion: If you are a very young undergraduate student looking to have fun while still going to a good school then do not come here because it will be the death of you. Look for a school in DC NYC Boston or even Virginia instead. I cant recall the number of times ive literally counted the months i have left until i graduate and leave this place. If i could transfer out i would in a heart beat but ive decided to just be a big girl and suck it up and pray that my time here goes by fast. With that said, If youre 24+ with other responsibilities and are just focused on strictly getting a good education then come here because this is the perfect place for you.
