Dear UMBC Community,
We are excited to share that UMBC is featured in this season of "The College Tour." This television series--hosted by Alex Boylan of "The Amazing Race" and a team of award-winning producers--tells the story of what life is like on college campuses across the United States.
Through a series of student interviews in each episode, viewers have the opportunity to explore the academic, social, cultural, and campus life of a featured college or university. Over the past three seasons, top universities like the University of Oregon, Baylor University, the University of Connecticut, Arizona State University, and the University of Miami have participated in the series. "The College Tour" is available on IMDb TV, Amazon Prime, and "The College Tour" app and website, making campus tours accessible to prospective students around the world.
This past fall, "The College Tour" visited UMBC's campus and interviewed 20 undergraduate and graduate students about a variety of subjects including mentorship, co-creating our campus, research, entrepreneurship, student support, leadership development, athletics, and community. Through our students' stories, viewers will learn about life at UMBC and explore what makes us a unique and thriving university.
We are so grateful to the students who participated in "The College Tour." It is because of their generosity in sharing their time and stories that this opportunity is possible. We would like to thank:
Tchuissi Mbu Nyamsi
Hannah Sadollah '19
Kara Seidel '18
In addition to our core cast, we are also thankful to the more than 230 UMBC students, faculty, staff, and community members who supported the creation of our episode.
Please tune in and share! UMBC's episode is available to watch now on many platforms, and will be streaming on Amazon on May 10, 2022.
