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.

"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.

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
The professors use real cases to teach you, and they bring in their outside experience. It's not something you just learn from a textbook.
-Yamaelis "Yami" Rosa Sanchez, a B.S. in Criminal Justice student
A lot of my teachers allowed us to do Zoom meetings if we needed a coach, so they were definitely helpful.

My friends and I, when we have time between class, we all go down to the Inner Harbor together. ... I like being able to do things like that.
-Franklin Douglass, B.S. in Simulation and Game Design student
I was looking for a school where i could do exactly what I'm doing: learn how to run a business, learn how to grow it, learn how to scale it. ... I'm glad to be part of this school.
The International Admission office helped me transition smoothly. All I had to do was send my transcript and they were able to transfer me in. I didn't have to worry about anything.
UB has a lot of opportunities, but they're only good if you take them. You have to be willing to take a chance and see what they have because these opportunities will expand your network and help you in the long run.
-Abraham Miguel Rodriguez Borrero, a B.A. in Philosophy, Law and Ethics 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.

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. ...

-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.
