Katie's Story

Hometown: Catonsville, MD

“I love this town. It is a city with lots of urban amenities, but still has a small-town feel.”

The best part of going to school in Baltimore, for Katie, is the O’s. She loves that she can see Oriole Park at Camden Yards from the campus gym, and walking from the school to the stadium comes in handy on game days.

Another outdoor activity Katie enjoys is hiking at Patapsco State Park. There are trails to explore for people of all abilities. She recommends the Buzzards Rock trail. “On the weekends you can see rock climbers on Buzzards Rock, and there is a good uphill portion to get your heart pumping.”

After watching the Blue Angels perform their air show in Baltimore, Katie discovered a new city favorite, walking along the water from Harbor Place to Locust Point.
