Here’s just a sampling of how UMBC made the news this week:
- UMBC has been listed alongside Cal Tech, Princeton, and MIT in this year’s edition of The Princeton Review’s “Colleges That Pay You Back,” a ranking of institutions that “give you the best bang for your tuition buck.”
- Chris Geddes, chemistry and biochemistry, is developing a faster, cheaper, and more accurate test to detect STDs by targeting DNA sequences with microwave technology and fluorescence.
- Ramon Goings, Sherman STEM Teacher Scholars Program, was quoted in a recent Ebony article discussing the importance of black male educators in K-12 settings.
- Men’s lacrosse coach Don Zimmerman is entering his 23rd year as head coach and reminisced about his time as a coach over the past two decades for the Baltimore Sun.
