A leader academically (he was a Rhodes Scholarship finalist and a MARC, Meyerhoff, Goldwater and McNair Scholar) and athletically (captain of the UMBC MenÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡s Rugby team), Michael Aaron is poised for a bright future. After taking part in the Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡s (MIT) Summer Research Program, he accompanied the MIT Rugby Team overseas for a match in Paris, France. He worked in labs at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and at Case Western Reserve University. Aaron is also an active member in Tau Beta Pi, the Engineering Honor Society, and a Learning Resource Center tutor.
Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡At the end of it all, I have an overwhelming sense of institutional pride and identity among my fellow students, faculty and staff. I truly believe in and have contributed in what way I can to UMBC, a university that is more than just a storehouse of knowledge or a community of scholars, but a boundless source of human potential.Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡
