Undergraduate Orientation

overnight orientation


Getting Retriever Ready is packaged with Course Selection Day and is scheduled for June 24 and 25. Please consider signing up for what promises to be a fun experience. Participants will check in to the Residence Halls in the morning of the 24th, meet the other participants, have lunch together and then have a full afternoon and evening of activities. Participants will stay together in the residence halls and then attend the Course Selection Day activities the next day. Commuter students, this is a fun way for you to have a residential experience for
a night!

Should your parent(s) want to stay on campus, we do have some rooms in a separate building, and we will host a reception and panel discussion for them. We do not have a full program for family members on the 24th, but we will provide families with a list of fun things to do in the Baltimore area. There are scheduled activities for family members on June 25.

This covers housing, meals and programming. Scholarship opportunities are available to cover the cost of this program. Email kboone@umbc.edu for more information on the scholarship.
