As the school year draws to a close we don’t want you to forget about us! Our office has a few tips for our admitted students and rising seniors!
We are really looking forward to our upcoming class of Retrievers! We can’t wait to add your talent and ambition to our campus. Did you know as an admitted student you can take a summer course or participate in our summer bridge program? In addition to orientation, you can sign up for an excursion! Spend a day in Baltimore or a few days in the mountains with your future classmates! Excursion sign ups are located within orientation sign up! Lastly, find out your house of grit! Take our quiz to see if you are a maker, explorer, thinker, uniter or solver.
Congrat’s juniors you are once again the top dawgs at the school and get to start this wonderful process of applying to schools! It is time to be visiting colleges and finalizing your school list. You already know the school’s facts, figures, and requirements but what about their atmosphere? Visit campuses and find out more about their lifestyle because it could be your home for four years. You have plenty of opportunities to visit UMBC. Come for a tour or an open house! Then start your application because deadlines creep up fast.
We look forward to seeing everyone on campus this summer! No matter what stage you are at in the admissions process never hesitate to contact our office!

A few weeks ago Laura wrote about Summer Preview Day here at UMBC. On Monday, August 3 we will be hosting our second Summer Preview Day which is another great opportunity for you to visit UMBC! You’ll hear it time and time again from admissions representatives but visiting a campus really is the best way to get a feel for the school. Summer Preview Day is open to any students interested in UMBC and you can register for the program on our website. As Laura mentioned in her post, during Summer Preview Day you will have the chance to tour the campus, meet current UMBC students and visit with staff members from various campus offices.
