My experience was pretty amazing because there is a wide diversity here so I got to explore different cultures. I absolutely love the ocean view I get to see everyday. It reminds me of how beautiful Earth is and it is not worth wasting time on electronics, instead go out and explore! The only thing I would change is I would have dorms to make accommodation easier for students.
Although I am only a freshman at UMB, my experience by far, is incredible. UMB provides many opportunities for students to excel in their education. This ranges from one-on-one subject tutoring to small class sizes so that student-professor relationships are close. Professors will help you in your struggles in the class and will do everything in their power to get you to understand the subject. I am looking forward to an awesome next 4 years at UMB as I learn more about the school and participate in the different opportunities that UMB has to offer.
Classes are only eye opening on the surface. Material usually goes to very shallow depths and doesn't play well into the major of choice.

The administration--specifically the office of undergraduate studies is very anti-social and would prefer it if they didn't haveto take care of any student issues. The advisors will rarely contact you about anything as they have about 100 advisees each.

Smoking cigarettes and marijuana are very common on campus.

The school does not provide dorms, yet they have many apartment complexes nearby that are utilized as such -- and are overpriced to the max.

I would reccomend this school to someone who already has a Bachelor degree and is going back for a Master or PhD but as for those who are undergrads, the school will not value you as a person. You are just another bit of income paying for the new 50 Million dollar buildings.
