My favorite thing about Visi is the atmosphere that the teachers, students, and campus create. The teachers here care so much about the individual growth of each student and go out of their way to make each class fun and interesting. The students make me feel like I am part of one big family. Everyone is very welcoming and kind. Finally, the atmosphere that the campus creates makes this whole high-school experience so much better. Charlotte '20
A Maryland native, Bernard Griggs headed to UMBC with the dream of becoming an engineering major. He didn’t know what kind he’d become - electrical, mechanical, computer - but he took the first year to explore.

Bernard liked how in any scenario, he’d have the chance to use math and physics. So then the counselor posed an important question: “If you like math and physics most, why not major in one of those?”
Dr. Nancy Cowdin, science teacher and Environmental Club moderator, looked at her closet and thought to herself, “There’s a lot that I’m not using.” That was the seed for the club’s first “reuse boutique” sale, for which they collected student donations and set up shop in the Dance Studio.

It’s been an exciting year for BEDA (Building, Engineering, Design & Architecture) Club. Despite having less time to devote to their annual design project due to their focus on Berchmans Hall and the Saints Connector, the club still took home third place in the ACE Mentor (Architecture, Construction, Engineering) regional competition this week.
