First Year Excursions

Orientation 2010 is just around the corner and we are excited to start seeing our new students!  Make sure you have checked out the Orientation website for information on what to expect from Course Selection Day and Welcome Week, things to-do before starting at UMBC and how to get connected before you even arrive.

One opportunity to connect to your fellow UMBC students and enhance your Orientation program is participating in a freshmen excursion!  There are two overnight excursion options happening on July 23 and they are  great way to experience the city of Baltimore.  You can check out the Baltimore Arts scene or go with nature and take a trip to the Gwynns Falls Trail.  Following one of those two options you’ll attend an Orioles pre-game picnic with your classmates and current UMBC students and then spend the night on campus.  The excursion fee is $75 and includes housing, transportation and meals.  Spaces are filling up quickly so make sure to sign-up fast!  If you have questions give us a shout at
