Baltimore, MD--UMBC is prominently featured in the current issue of "How to get Into College," published jointly by Newsweek magazine and KAPLAN Educational Centers. The university is described as a "powerhouse in Baltimore offering a topnotch, rigorous education to scholars who don't want to pay for an Ivy." The only Maryland school featured in the article, "Five Schools With A Mission," UMBC was profiled along with Cooper Union, California Institute of Technology, Evergreen State College and Northeastern University (p.22). The same feature story also appears in the Newsweek/Kaplan "How to Get Into American Universities" guide distributed abroad. Both publications went on sale at newsstands and in bookstores on Monday, August 10, and will be displayed until November 30, 1998. They can also be ordered on KAPLAN's web site, or by calling 800.KAP.ITEM. The September 1998 issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine also lists UMBC as one of 100 "State Universities to Cheer About" (p.80). The article focused on high-caliber education at public universities that offer great values.
