    Favorite thing about Baltimore:
    The culture and the people. There is always something going on whether it's a play, festival, concert or sports game. And you never know who you will meet and their story. There are people from all walks of life and so many interesting histories.

    Favorite thing about Baltimore:
    Growing up in Baltimore, I have always loved the festivals—especially Artscape, which is held annually right here on UB’s campus.

    Favorite thing about UB:
    I love the convenience of the campus. It’s in the heart of the city and with the MARC train [near] campus, I am able to easily travel to Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and even New York City.

    The best part about my job is that I get to travel and meet new people.

    Admission Counselor, Undergraduate Admission

    Hometown: Columbia, Maryland

    Favorite thing about Baltimore:
    My favorite thing about Baltimore is that there is always so much to do. I love catching an O's game at Camden Yards, playing beach volleyball at Rash Field in the Inner Harbor and viewing the lights on 34th Street during the holidays. There is always something fun to be a part of.

    Favorite thing about UB:
    My favorite thing at UB is when students decorate the Edgar Allan Poe statue in Gordon Plaza. I love coming out of the Academic Center and seeing him wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses or a cap and gown.

    Why you do what you do:
    The best part of my job is meeting new students every day and helping them to achieve their goal of getting a college degree.

    Favorite thing about Baltimore:
    My favorite thing about Baltimore is eating a crab pretzel at an Orioles game on a sunny afternoon in May.

    My favorite thing about UB is the diverse backgrounds of our students. I love that we have first-year students in their 50’s trying to better themselves through education.
