UMBC Magazine publishes twice a year in print, and throughout the year online. Follow UMBC on social media, and you’ll stay in the loop with ease!

If you’re wondering who’s behind UMBC Magazine, look no further than the Alumni House. There, a team of writers and designers — many of them alumni themselves — are working to create an intellectually stimulating, diverting magazine they hope will make you proud. Contact UMBC Magazine.
