Don't just take our word for it. Experience the University of Baltimore from the perspective of our students.
Almas Younis, undergraduate student
Join Almas, a first-generation college student, as she reflects on how her freshman year helped to shape her decision to pursue a degree in criminal justice. UB's location in the heart of Baltimore affords students a vibrant and diverse educational experience. "My advice to incoming freshmen is to keep an open mind, join organizations and be curious," she says.
Opeyemi Thomas, transfer student
Ope shares how transferring to UB--and the many resources available to students--changed the course of his career. As a Ratcliffe Entrepreneurship Fellow at UB's Merrick School of Business he was able to develop and launch a parking app, Roadi. "At UB, I was able to see myself develop into that business owner, that entrepreneur, I wanted to be," he says.
Chelsea Corpening, graduate student
Chelsea keeps busy balancing a career, an internship and the pursuit of a graduate degree in human services administration. UB's flexible course offerings allow her to design a schedule that fits her life. "I chose UB because of the program's reputation," she says. "The people who graduate from here really do good for the community, and I really wanted to be a part of that."
Nick Owens, doctoral student
Nick always had a passion for computers and technology, but only as a hobby—until a class on information architecture spurred his decision to pursue his doctorate in information and interaction design. "My UB experience has been one that’s really allowed for a diverse number of transferable job skills," he says. "Whatever you learn here is going to be applicable out there.”
Meet Our Students
UB has given me real-world experience that I may have not gotten at another institution. I am someone who prefers a smaller college, so UB was perfect.
-Morgan Brown, a B.A. '19 (Interdisciplinary Studies)
The fact that I had internships as a student at UB has helped me maintain the notion of being consistent and not being complacement in where I am.
-Tyler Medley, B.S. '19 (Business Administration, accounting specialization)
I returned to UB after a hiatus ... to complete my undergraduate studies because UB professors are excellent instructors and they do a superb job.
-Randall Martin, a B.A. in Philosophy, Law and Ethics student (formerly Jurisprudence)
UB has made me want to continue to mentor the youth and eventually become an educator to inspire people the way my professors have inspired me.
-Aivana Hoang, B.S. '18
UB has helped me to achieve success by never making me feel as though I didn't belong. I attended a much larger university before coming to UB, and I felt lost and out of place. At UB, I can lean on the people around me for support.
-Jasmea Turner, B.A. '18
Without UB offering this program, I wouldn't be where I am. Without the school's commitment to helping working students succeed, I would not have been able to keep up the standard of work needed.
-Miranda Walker, B.S. '19 (Business Administration) and current law student
UB has made my goals for my future feel more realistic, along with helping me to realize I can do even more to advance my knowledge and experience outside of the classroom.
-Mikita Thompson, B.S. in Business Administration student, real estate and economic development specialization
The campus location, availability of resources and flexibility of faculty have all attributed to my success at UB.
-Hope Ford, B.A. '18, M.S. in Human Services Administration student
UB is diverse and is focused on knowledge that works, and that drew me in. I needed a college that would teach me [not only] the skills but also how to put those skills into action. With an established career, I was able to take what UB taught me and apply those teachings in my work.
-Brandee Izquierdo, M.P.A. '17, Doctor of Public Administration student
UB is a mechanism for students to make an impact in Baltimore. I have a deep love for Baltimore City and I am truly grateful that UB has given me the tools and opportunity to make an impact in my hometown.
-Jacob Balter, B.A. '16, M.P.A. '19
UB has made it more convenient for the working student to go to college with evening and online class options. I personally prefer face-to-face classes and the flexible schedule choices UB provides.
-Thermon Morris, B.S. '17, MBA '19
UB has transformed my life through its generous and caring professors that teach at UB every day. The professors and faculty here at UB care about their students and want their students to reach their goals and aspirations.
-Khrysten Williams, M.P.A. '19
I know all of my professors names and they all know my name and once you gain a relationship, people will take genuine interest in you. ... Our generation misses the face-to-face interaction and thinks you can Google everything, but some things you can't and getting that mentorship is important. UB puts you in a place to do that.
-Edward Dent Jr., J.D. '19
The friendships that I've made have been crucial to my law school experience. My friends and I study, brainstorm about career plans and laugh together. The University of Baltimore School of Law is not a cutthroat environment; students want to succeed, but they want their classmates to succeed, too.
-Eboni Mosley, J.D. '18
As an immigrant from Ukraine, I could have been confused by the demands of law school. But at UB, all my questions were answered. Faculty and staff are willing to meet with any student to clarify issues—academic or otherwise—and the law school leads you step by step through the career-shaping process.
-Ilona Shparaga, J.D. '17, Ukraine
I think UB is the coolest school because it's diverse, and I feel like I am at home even though I'm 4,500 miles away.
-Grinvydas Dainys, B.S. '18, Lithuania
There's a lot of truth in the motto Knowledge That Works and I think that's what you're getting when you sign up for a degree program here.
-Branden Lynam, U.S. Air Force officer, Applied Psychology student, Industrial and Organizational concentration
The Bob Parsons Veterans Center granted me a place to reflect, learn and advance academically and personally.
-Ryan Squires, U.S. Army, B.A. '17
