  • The year-round ultimate frisbee leagues in Catonsville and the Neuroscience department softball team. Travis Faust, Graduate Student (Sawa Lab)
    I’m new here, so getting lost biking through Baltimore has been a great way to explore. The murals are beautiful. Also, it’s wonderful to be living in a city that is celebrated for their crab dishes—my favorite comfort food! Raina D’Aleo, Graduate Student
    Each neighborhood in Baltimore has a unique personality offering a variety of affordable food options. I love the charcuterie selection at Trinacria and Parts & Labor. Wendy Xin, Graduate Student (Bonci Lab)
