A Typical UMHB Student
Since the thought that there’s actually a “typical” student at UMHB is somewhat of an oxymoron, we compiled a list of adjectives to describe what our students are like. UMHB students are... bright, thoughtful, intuitive, curious, creative, compassionate, kind, loyal, faithful, fun-loving, care-giving, serenading, sporty, touchdown-making, research-leading, outdoorsy, spirited, respectful, responsible, resourceful, resolute...What we’re trying to say is, at UMHB, you will find a community of like-minded students who will be peers, classmates, and friends through the next four years and beyond.
