Countdown to May 1

April 4, 2018  |  Uncategorized

As May 1 quickly approaches, our admission staff is hard at work getting ready for the class of 2022 to join our campus community! Whether your students have deposited, been accepted, or even are still considering applying to Hood, we have numerous visit opportunities for them to see if Hood can be home for their next four years.

On Saturday, April 7, we are welcoming about 120 families to campus for Accepted Students’ Day. Prospective students will have the opportunity to meet faculty and staff, sit in on “minicourses” in the area of their choosing, interact with current and prospective students alike, and explore our campus! Students are also given the opportunity to spend the night on campus the night before Accepted Students’ Day, where they will be a part of a fun-filled evening with various campus activities to participate in as well as dinner in the dining hall with our current student leaders on campus. If you have any students that have been accepted to Hood College and would like to join in on the fun, encourage them to sign up here!

For seniors that have not yet been accepted to Hood, or for underclass students that are beginning their search, we will be holding large group presentations and tours from 10 a.m. until noon on a number of Saturdays – April 14, April 21, and April 28. Additionally, we are open for tours and meetings with an admission counselor every weekday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

We would love to have your group visit our beautiful campus, so feel free to contact our office at 301-696-3400 to arrange a visit for your students!

Additionally, we know that for many students, plans change quickly for post-graduation – and we project that we will have openings for the fall class beyond May 1 for many programs on campus, as well as for first-year housing. If you have a student who might be interested in Hood College, please have them contact us as soon as possible at 301-696-3400 or We’re always happy to welcome new students to our Hood family!
