Coming Soon to a School Near You

And we’re off! This has been an incredibly busy summer in the Office of Admissions at UMBC and the day we’ve been planning for is finally here. Over the next week we will all be leaving the office for fall travel.

This is one of my favorite times of year. First, there is the promise of pumpkin flavored everything, especially at Starbucks. Second, I love driving with the windows down as the leaves change colors. And finally – and most importantly – we get to meet all of you! We will be attending high school visits and college fairs throughout the next few months from Connecticut to North Carolina. Hollin left today for her first visits in North Carolina and Lisa and I will be leaving this weekend.

Make sure you take a look at the College Fairs section of this blog. Josh will be updating it shortly with all of the dates and times that you can meet us. Also check with your high schools to see if we will be making an individual visit there. And if your high school or region isn’t on the list, not to fret! We always welcome visitors from areas we are not able to reach. Check out our visit website,, for more information on those programs. And don’t hesitate to keep in touch with us via email.

So remember, if you see one of these faces on the road…


Josh, Jaime, Lisa, Scott, Hollin, Julie

… say hello!
