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.

Open doorsYou might think summer is a slow time for graduate admissions, but that’s not the case for us! We’ve been busy re-vamping the application, drafting a new Prospectus, preparing for multiple orientations and. . . OPEN HOUSE!

Prospective students are cordially invited to attend :

Fall Open House
Monday, October 14, 2013
1 to 5 p.m.


Open House provides an opportunity for prospective master’s and doctoral students to learn more about our school in-person. Come see for yourself our beautiful facilities and engaging faculty!  Among other activities, attendees will tour our campus and mingle with department staff, faculty and current students.

The registration form is live and we encourage you to make use of it early. This event does fill up.

Hope to see you in October!
