Spreading the Holiday Cheer!

Hello Future Retrievers!

With the Holiday season vastly approaching us, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has caught the holiday spirit and bringing about cheer.  We recently had our Winter Celebration with all of Enrollment Management Department, and I even had the pleasure of being wrapped up in toilet paper by our very own Assistant Vice Provost of Undergraduate Admissions and Orientation, Dale Bittinger, and our Assistant Director of Target Populations, Lori Smith-Watson. It’s not what you think; we were the champions of building a snowman in 2 minutes! I provided the proof below!

I’ve also had the pleasure of coordinating our Take UMBC Home for the Holidays program for its 9th year in a row! UMBC students are nominated by their departments, scholars programs, organizations and clubs, etc. to spread some Retriever Fever while at home for the holidays!  For all of my Future Retrievers, be on the lookout for some of our UMBC students to be coming to a high school near you in the next couple of months!!! At our last information session, Dale was able to snap a selfie with some of our participants. It was definitely a sight to see.
