Have you been admitted to one of our degree programs?


We know your next step involves a lot of informed decisions. We’re here to provide information -- the decisions are up to you!

We spent our fall developing a new Admitted Student Website with information on Admitted Student Visitors Days, final admissions steps, Orientation, relocating to Baltimore and more.

This website is available only to admitted students and a login is required. You should receive login information with your letter offering admission. If you don’t, email us and we’ll make sure you have access.

The Admitted Student Website is accessed from the Admissions landing page. Choose “login” in the blue Admitted box.

William Welch plaqueDo you know where this is?

More importantly, do you know who this is?

It’s William Henry Welch, a founder of the Bloomberg School and leader in public health. He was called “Popsy” by his friends and students and “our greatest statesman in the field of public health” by President Hoover.

You can learn more about Dr. Welch and his many accomplishments under Heroes of Public Health.

The plaque is located just inside the Wolfe Street entrance to the School of Public Health.

Next week, our School will host the 29th Annual Public Health Career Fair.

This event attracts scores of public health employers from around the world and is open to undergraduate and graduate students.  Students from non-Hopkins schools are welcome!

Participating employers hope to fill full-time positions, internships, consultancy and fellowship positions in the corporate, government and non-profit domains.

Registration is not required, but business attire is recommended.

1. What do you like about living in/near Baltimore?

I grew up just outside of Baltimore City. Now I live downtown and I love living near the harbor. After visiting lots of other cities, I really have to say, I love the architecture and historic aspects of downtown Baltimore (considering we were one of the 13 colonies). There are beautifully designed areas especially in Mount Vernon.

2. Your favorite thing to do in Baltimore?

I was an Art History major so I enjoy going to our local museums like the Walters or the BMA, but on a beautiful day I love taking a walk from Canton to Fells point along the water.

3. Do you have a favorite Baltimore food/restaurant?

I have to say Maryland Crabs, particularly because I am obsessed with Old Bay. We have tons of great restaurants in Baltimore and since my favorite meal to eat is breakfast or brunch, Miss Shirley’s is one of my favorites.

4. What do you like best about your job?

I really enjoy all the people I work with as well as meeting prospective students and answering their questions!

5. How long have you been at Hopkins?

I am one of the newest employees. I have only been here for a few months, but I’m learning a lot and really enjoy it!

6. Favorite color?

Bright orange!

7. Favorite sports team?

Obviously the Ravens - Ray Lewis is my hero!

8. Hobbies/activities?

I enjoy reading, spending time with my friends & family, traveling, and being active by taking walks or playing tennis in the spring and summer.

9. What did you have for lunch today?

A salad from Salad Creations. You can create your own and they have virtually every ingredient you can imagine!

10. If you were to be locked all by yourself in E1002 for one week, with no electrical power, what is one thing you would bring with you?

Well hopefully I wouldn’t be alone, because that would be scary. But if I was, then probably a long book to keep me occupied!

In previous posts, we gave you the Travel Channel version of Baltimore and shared our crazy loyalty to our sports teams.  But what’s it like to LIVE in this city?

We’re so happy you asked!

 More than half the admissions staff lives in town and we’re happy to share our knowledge.  Feel free to email or read about our favorite places.

Browse our new “neighborhood” page which provides photographs and a brief description of Baltimore’s most popular neighborhoods.

If you’re an Admitted Student, log into the Admitted Student website. There you’ll find detailed information about Admitted Student Visitors Day, online information sessions, housing, schools for children, and local services.

And lastly, for the best information regarding living in Baltimore, listen to our current students.
