Happy after May 1st! Things here in the Admissions Office have been a little crazy up to this point, but I think we’re just as excited as you that the May 1st deadline has passed, and we can’t wait to meet all of you at Orientation this summer! Orientation is a great time for you to get adjusted to campus, sign up for classes, learn the “nuts and bolts” of UMBC, meet some of your future classmates, roommates, and best friends, and get excited about coming to college in the fall!
Interested in taking your Orientation and Course Selection Day to the next level? Sign up for our EXCURSION weekend! This extended Orientation event will allow you to spend the weekend at Hemlock Overlook in Clifton, Virginia outdoors with your future classmates. This outdoor adventure weekend will push you to the limits through rock climbing, caving, zip-lining, and camping, as well as get to know some faces at UMBC on a whole other level. For more information on the Excursion Weekend and to sign up, checkout the website!
So I may have used a lot of exclamation points in this blog post (I just realized this) but that is because Orientation is the beginning of your college experience, and that is something to be excited about! Below are some helpful links to help you navigate the Orientation process and get ready to start your semester at UMBC!
