Most of the time it’s the co-curricular things that we got involved with. These can also be hands on experiences that help us shape who we want to be and what we want to do with our lives (study abroad, service/volunteerism, student group involvement, etc…).

A: FOOD! Haha I’ve always said that I’d be willing to try any food once (except for the food that I’m allergic to—shellfish and peanuts/tree nuts).
Q: Do you have any UMBC stories, little-known facts about UMBC, favorite spots on campus, or anything else you’d like to share?
A: This is one that I’m still working on since I’m so new, but what I’d like to say is that the Mosaic Center’s doors are open to ALL students, faculty and staff. So if you just need a place to chill out during your busy day, stop by and vent, or meet up with others, stop on by and someone will be here to help you! J
