Admissions Receptions Spring 2014

Are you a proud Retriever Believer? There are a variety of ways alumni can volunteer to give back to the UMBC community. One unique opportunity is to attend one of our many spring Admissions Receptions. These events are offered through Alumni Relations and the Admissions Office.

The spring Admissions Receptions are offered to prospective students and their families on an invitation-only basis to help answer any questions they might have and to welcome them to the UMBC community. Alumni are invited to mix and mingle and to speak with students candidly about their experiences during their time at UMBC. You may choose to attend one or several of the spring Admissions Receptions.

Important things to know about the receptions:

  • Alumni will need to arrive by 6:30 p.m.
  • The reception runs until about 9:00 p.m.
  • Alumni can expect to mix and mingle, speaking with both students and their families.
  • The reception will include a brief welcome and introductions of faculty, current students, alumni and staff.
