Keyword: orientation

Welcome studentsIt seems like convocation was just last week and already the halls are busy with students attending Summer Institutes or beginning their online/part-time MPH.

And would you believe?

Orientation for full-time MPH students is less than a month away!

Are you coming? Are you ready?

Orientation is mandatory for incoming students. The June 30-July 1 event is for full-time MPH students only (there’s a separate orientation in August for all other incoming degree students).

We’ve developed a checklist to help you prepare. This and other details regarding Orientation may be found on the Admitted Student Website (login and password required).

As always, you can email us with any questions.

Hope to see you soon!

Welcome New Students!

It’s so nice to finally meet you!

Back to School ChalkboardAre you coming to Fall Orientation?*

As a follow-up to last week’s post about traffic, we wanted to remind you of the transportation options for coming to campus.

For more information on commuting to and from campus, see the Transportation pages under Student Life or the even more detailed “Getting Around” on the Admitted Student website (login and password required).

See you later this week!

*Orientation is for admitted students who replied positively to their offer of admission and completed an enrollment form. Space is limited and the event is not appropriate for prospective students and/or guests.

Grand Prix raceFor us, the biggest event of Labor Day weekend isn’t the DC Blues Festival, the opening of the Maryland Renaissance Festival or even my birthday. It’s Fall Orientation!

But no matter how focused we might be on that one event, there are others you should be aware of.

Road closures related to the Grand Prix of Baltimore go into effect Monday, August 26.  Please plan accordingly for increased traffic - especially if you have to travel through downtown.
