"Being a voice for students, it means a lot. I never was the person that wanted to be in the front ... UBalt has taught me to be prouder of myself."

Randy's Story

Randy Wells was one to stay behind the scenes, at least, until he came to The University of Baltimore.

At UBalt, Randy joined the Student Government Association and volunteered for various campus events, while he pursues his bachelor's degree in Human Services Administration. He's also a member of the University's campus-wide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Student Life committees.

"Being a voice for students, it means a lot. I never was the person that wanted to be in the front ... UBalt has taught me to be prouder of myself."

Randy transferred to UBalt after earning his associate degree from an online-based community college. He was drawn to the idea of coming to a college where he could enjoy campus life.

"I like the atmosphere of UBalt. It caters to the working adult."

A first-generation college student, Randy felt having a degree—and the foundation of knowledge that comes with it—would help him achieve more in the social service work he loves.

"My mother and my late grandfather always said get as much education as you can possibly get. That's one thing that me and my sisters stick with as we've continued to grow, that education is an important factor in our lives and we pass that on to the next generation."
