According to the US Department of Labor, Labor Day is a “yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

For me, it’s a three-day birthday weekend.

Regardless of what you are or aren’t celebrating,
Johns Hopkins University is closed today.

Admissions participates in information sessions and graduate fairs throughout the year, but fall is our busiest travel season.

In September, we’ll take part in two online events: the SOPHAS Virtual Fair and our own “Ins and Outs of Applying to the Bloomberg School.

We’ll also join face-to-face events in New York, N.Y.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Charlottesville, Va.; Williamsburg, Va.; Medford, Mass.; Boston, Mass.; Syracuse, N.Y. and Williamstown, Mass.

We update our calendar frequently, so check back to see when we’ll be in your area!

Fall Orientation is underway!

We thought we'd share a few photos.

What are your favorite things about the Bloomberg School?

I asked our admissions team to take a picture of their favorite thing. Here is what they came up with!

Favorite things around the School

From left to right, top to bottom:

  • amazing people! (represented here by the staff of Student Affairs)
  • one of many electronic posters listing intriguing lectures and events – there’s always something going on!
  • coffee from the Daily Grind – aside from the caffeine, a trip to the coffee shop means snippets of conversation with students, faculty and staff
  • ninth floor terrace – good for reading, eating or stealing a moment of sunshine
  • upside down map provides a different perspective of a familiar image
  • view of Baltimore from a treadmill in the ninth floor gym
