Jet planeAll your bags are packed.
You’re ready to go.
You’re standing there outside your door. . .

Sorry.

The words to “Leaving on a Jet Plane” run through my head every time I travel.

The other thing that runs through my head is a somewhat neurotic step-by-step plan of how I intend to get to my destination.

Do you do that? (Please say yes). If so, and you’re planning a trip to Baltimore, this post is for you!

Our local airport is Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall, otherwise known as BWI. It’s ranked 22nd in the nation for size - which makes it big enough to have plenty of amenities, but not so big that you get lost looking for your luggage.

From there, you have several options.  You could take a taxi into the city or rent a car. You could take an airport shuttle or the bus. Or you could take the train (Amtrak, MARC or Light Rail).

All three rail options stop at Baltimore’s Penn Station and from there scheduled visitors may take the Hopkins Shuttle.

Need more information?  I have more resources!

Happy trails! (Oh dear, now I have that song running through my head!)

Empty coffee shopIt was quiet in the coffee shop this morning.  With Convocation last week, most of our students are either beginning their post-graduate life or on summer break.

The quiet won’t last for long!

The first of our Summer Institutes begins next week as does the first in a series of new student orientations!

Most of you following this blog are somewhere in the beginning of your graduate public health journey.

The following are photos of students on the other side of that journey.

This could be you one day!
