Opening Day!

Opening Day!
As much as I enjoyed being sought out by dozens of prospective UMBC students at the NACAC fair in Hartford, CT this week, it’s great to be back in Baltimore for Major League Baseball’s Opening Day. Ok, so maybe the Orioles did lose to a community college team from Florida this week (http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/baltimore-orioles-drop-exhibition-game-community-college-164735728.html ), but its opening day in Baltimore and people are excited, UMBC being no exception. After over a dozen straight losing seasons, with the Orioles it’s not so much about the team on the field, but the camaraderie of the fans, the celebration of warmer weather, and the beauty of Camden Yards, arguably the MLB’s greatest ballpark. With that said, here’s to the hope of a winning season, a hope that has not totally left Baltimore. And speaking of hope, we’ve gotten quite a few inquiries as of late from those of you on the waitlist. If you are one of those currently on our waitlist, your wait may not be too much longer, as we expect to begin review of our waitlist by the end of May. Moreover, you can certainly positively affect your chances for admission to UMBC by submitting any updated score reports or mid-year grade reports. Best wishes to each of you whom are currently winding out the home stretch of your high school careers, and perhaps I’ll “see you at the yard.”

In the mean time, can anyone identify the following structure? It’s a picture I snapped while walking around downtown Hartford and thought it was quite intriguing. Until next time, Mike
