Bigger Purposes by Childs Walker

Description

When UMBC opened, just a handful of buildings on an old farm, 30 miles from College Park and 8 miles from the downtown professional schools, the new faculty and first classes of students reported a sense of excitement at the possibility of the new school. Many in the community were not so sure, and as the direction of the university has evolved this support has evolved, too. In the past decade there has been a new sense of excitement not just on campus but nationwide, spurred on by higher honors in university rankings, national news profiles, and a growing network of accomplished alumni touting the success of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. This example, a front page story in the Baltimore Sun, trumpets UMBC�s profile and future.
