Joining the Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students (ACES) honors college program was one of the best decisions I made here at UMD, because it exposed me to a wonderful community of talented and intersesting students. I'm glad that UMD has LLP programs like ACES, because that experience helped me find somewhere where I could fit in and find success.
