Admissions Services will be closed Monday, May 28, 2018 in observance of Memorial Day. The office will reopen Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at 8:00 a.m.

On Tuesday, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will award over 900 degrees. Of the students graduating, over 290 are international students and represent more than 44 countries. The Master of Arts in Public Health Biology and the Master of Applied Science degrees will be awarded for the first time at tomorrow’s convocation ceremony.

With twelve different degrees, across eleven departments and an additional four school-wide or interdisciplinary degrees, it is difficult to define the path of our students. For insight of what students from our different departments and programs thought of their time at JHSPH and their future plans, take a look at some of the students in The Class of 2018.

Congratulations to all the 2018 graduates for earning your degrees in public health. The school knows you will continue protecting health, saving lives—millions at a time.

Our group of nine split into two groups of two and two groups of three for a variety of projects. When it came to the artistic project, Raili and I eagerly volunteered. We quickly developed a plan for the mural.

Two and a half hours later, the entrance to the community food pantry was transformed.

While Raili and I were painting, some others in the group put their muscles to use and faced the leaf and twig covered amphitheater.

Trees mean shade, but they also mean debris!

Each year, Admissions Services sets aside a day to volunteer in the Baltimore community and give back to our city. This year, we will be volunteering at the Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School. The Baltimore public school is five blocks from the School of Public Health and has committed to seeing 100% of its students from “Commodore to College”.

Admissions Services will reopen on Monday, May 14 at 8 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Public health is a massive field filled with all types of professionals. However, public health efforts would be struggling without teachers and nurses. Teachers are in the field instructing the populations and spreading public health knowledge in classrooms every day. In addition to acting as providers, nurses help organize and implement research, policies and care.

To all the public health nurses and teachers, we salute you and thank you for your important work!
