Founded in 1966, UMBC has changed immensely over the years, evolving from a small regional campus to a nationally distinguished research university in a relatively short time. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the many kinds of Retrievers who have made us what we are today – an innovative and inclusive community like no other.
As we celebrate Founder’s Day 2022 and our 56th fall semester, what could be more appropriate than a fun Retriever history quiz? (Don’t worry, we’re not grading you.)
And if you’re ready to take a really deep dive into UMBC history, take a look at our new timeline, rebuilt with lots of new photos and factoids to please any Retriever Believer.
Let’s see how you do!
How’d you do? We hope you enjoyed this spin through time at UMBC. Happy Founder’s Day!
