State of MarylandA few years ago, we used the slogan “The World is Our Campus” on our Academic Prospectus and other printed materials. With ongoing research in over 130 countries, that statement is certainly true.

But while the world is our campus, Baltimore, Maryland is our home. And today is a very special day in our home state.

On this day in 1634, 150 settlers landed on St. Clement’s Island to establish the colony of Maryland.

Three hundred and eighty years later, Maryland is the land of the Chesapeake Bay, blue crabs, Black-eyed Susans and Johns Hopkins University.

Happy Birthday, Maryland!
