UMBC’s second annual Engineer Week kicked off on Monday night with a discussion led by UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski. The goals of the five day long event are to celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world and to increase public dialogue about the need for engineers and engineering education.
This Friday, Feb. 26, students from Overlea High School will be on campus learning about college life. Mostly freshmen, they will be touring the grounds, seeing residence halls and speaking with UMBC student volunteers.
Bang for your buck
UMBC was featured in the Princeton Review’s “Colleges That Pay You Back.” The review showcases hundreds of colleges that give you the best bang for your tuition buck, “balancing superb academics, affordability,” and “getting their graduates out the door to satisfying and rewarding careers.” The Princeton Review wrote that UMBC is “arguably the best public college in Maryland,” and an “extremely diverse school that manages to maintain a small community feel.”
