Explore Hopkins From Afar

In the next few weeks, my colleagues and I will be packing our bags and hitting the road. Fall recruitment travel season is upon us and there is a good chance a member of the Admissions staff will be coming to a location near you. Throughout the fall, the Admissions staff will hold Explore Hopkins programs in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. With the masterful assistance of our event planner extraordinaire, Cheryl Janowsky, the Admissions counselors are prepared to visit 37 locations and host our amazing “road show.” Our programs feature presentations by Admissions staff (and occasionally recent alumni) and provide information about the university, the admissions process, and financial aid. These events are the perfect chance for people who want to Explore Hopkins but can’t make it to Baltimore.

With the help of my student intern, JHU_Mandy, we have put together a Google map that details the location of all of our off-campus recruitment events. The first event is September 12 in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the final event will be held on November 4 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Space is limited at these events so we require reservations. Full program details including date, time, exact location, and the online R.S.V.P. forms can be found here: http://apply.jhu.edu/visit/explorehopkins.html.

As you review the map you will notice a few additional sites marked with red pin-points. In addition to our Explore Hopkins program, we will also be participating in two Group Travel programs. Dean Latting will be traveling to four locations in Texas with representatives from Davidson College, Swarthmore College, and Wesleyan University in mid-September. That same week, I will join colleagues from Northwestern University, University of California, Berkeley, and University of Virginia for programs in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Full details on these group travel programs can be found here: http://apply.jhu.edu/visit/grouptravel.html.

As we prepare to come to your “neck of the woods,” my colleagues and I are looking for suggestions of what to do when we are in your hometowns. So if we are coming to your city, let us know where you suggest we eat and also what should we do / where should we visit during our free time (which is unfortunately sparse). Use the blog comments section to share your suggestions. I know I am always looking forward to restaurant suggestions in New England, and my colleagues will enjoy hearing from you.

We look forward to seeing you this fall and helping you Explore Hopkins.
