1 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED:
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
My scholarship has meant so much to me. This scholarship was what pushed me to become a Terp because it made the University of Maryland the most financially viable school for me. Because of this scholarship I have been able to focus on my studies without worrying excessively about the burden of student loans. It has allowed me to enjoy my time at the University of Maryland and I am very grateful for that.
Why did you choose to attend the University of Maryland, what makes this place special to you and what is your favorite part of being a Terp?
I chose to attend the University of Maryland because it is a great academic school, and because it was the most financially viable option for me, mainly due to the scholarship. I was considering a few other schools that had offered me scholarships, but with in-state tuition and the scholarship it became an easy choice. My favorite things about being a Terp are the great communities of people, the beauty of McKeldin Mall, and the great variety and talent of our extracurricular groups and sport team. The University of Maryland is a great school to attend, and I am very glad with my choice and grateful for the part you played in it.
What is your major, minor, class and graduation year?
I am currently an Undeclared Freshman planning to graduate in 2019 with a degree in either Kinesiology or Business.
What is your Hometown?
I am from Columbia, Maryland
Tell us about your favorite class, extracurricular activity, academic opportunity, community involvement or another unique experience.
My favorite extracurricular activity is athletics. My friends and I have attended many football, baseball, volleyball, mens and womens soccer, lacrosse, and basketball games throughout our first year. We also use UMDs many public fields to play games of our own and participate in intramural sports. This scholarship has allowed me to take full advantage of the University of Marylands athletic community rather than a part-time job.
