Monday governor Larry Hogan toured the University of Maryland Baltimore County Campus.

Hogan was greeted on campus by a big sign, the university's president and a group of students.

He was then shown around the campus and taken to the roof of one building with views as far as downtown Baltimore. The governor also took some time to meet with students and faculty.

"UMBC is such a tremendous asset for the state of Maryland. They're doing a great job in a lot of different fields. Particularly in the STEM areas,” said Hogan. “They're cranking out a lot of really talented folks for the new economy that we have, with cyber and IT."

UMBC boasts several STEM-related majors including eight engineering programs, 16 science and math programs, and 13 technology and computing programs.
