So I finally got the pictures for new student day that I took using my bosses phone – sorry that they are not so great but still you can see all the potential new students and families joining us.It was on April 10, 2010. I met so many people – some proud parents, some unsure seniors, some very excited to just start school at UMBC and others just confused as to where the breakfast table is located …lol( it was 8:30 am I don’t blame them) Then our star students and the president of UMBC welcomed new students. Afterwards new students and families were allowed to go to different workshop like ‘Meet the Deans’ where they would get to meet all the deans of the departments at UMBC and ‘Student Life Workshop’ – where I was at. Three other students and I got to tell our story and talk about life at UMBC. The campus was crowded with about 2000 new students and families and Imagination Destination National contestants and families of about 3000. UMBC was lively with kids and new students with walking all around campus. It was really nice. I didn’t get to go to new student day when I joined UMBC – So it was nice to see it and speak about my experience to others.
ENjoy the pictures – Sorry if they are a little low quality – took them with my boss’s cell phone
