My name is Ryan Brown and I am a senior Mechanical Engineering major. I transferred to UMBC in the fall of 2015 from Frederick Community College where I obtained my Associates degree in IT: Network Engineering. I have worked at OCSS since spring 2016 and have loved every minute of it! I have also served as a representative for transfer students on the Student Fee Advisory Board for the past three years. When I am not at school or working I love to go hiking or biking!  I would advise all new students to get involved! It’s a great way to connect with students from around the campus. whether it be through clubs or a campus job!


Hey! My name is Hope Butler and I am a senior Psychology major with a minor in Social Work. Along with working at OCSS, I am also the president of Zeta Sigma Chi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. and a member of AIM (Achievement and Inspiration through Mentorship). In my spare time I enjoy reading (romance novels are my favorite) and watching Netflix.

I come from a paradise of myths, mountains, history, and diversity- Nepal! I got my Associates in Science from Community College of Baltimore County and I am currently a Junior majoring in Information Systems and minoring in Computer Science here at UMBC. I like networking inside and out of the technology world, and that is why I chose to be a Transfer Student Network Leader.

Hi, my name is Mike and I am a senior studying Political Science. I have been a Transfer Student Network Leader since August 2018. After I graduate, I plan to find a job or attend graduate school. I am involved in Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, where I have been the New Member Educator. During my free time I am usually DJing, hanging out with my fraternity brothers, or learning to do a handstand!

My name is Zhane Bradford, and I am a senior Dance Major. Aside from being a TSN Leader for Off-Campus Student Services, I also work for the Campus Information Center in front of The Commons. I am the the Event Planning Chairman for my sorority Alpha Sigma Alpha, a part of the Dance Council of Majors, a Peer Facilitator for Introduction to Honors University Courses for first year students, and the National Communications Coordinator for the Resident Student Association. Finally, I was an Orientation Peer Advisor this past summer and will be again this coming winter. If you have any questions about UMBC, I am here to answer them for you!
