Host-A-Day/Virtual Hangouts

The Honors Ambassadors Host-a-Day program allows prospective students to experience a day in the life of a current Honors College student. The Host-a-Day program is open to all prospective students during the fall semester and open only to admitted students invited into the Honors College during the spring semester.

The Virtual Hangout form for Fall 2020 can be found here.

Please note: The Host-A-Day program is for students only. In addition, this program is not a campus tour or an overnight stay program.


Students may also want to tour campus. Students can learn more about the tour options and schedule their tour.

If you have any questions, please contact our admissions team at honorsadmissions@umd.edu.


Discover Life as a Fearless Terp

Open houses are a great opportunity for prospective Honors College students to explore what it is like to be a Terp! Prospective students and their families are invited to campus to speak with faculty members, meet current students, take a campus tour, and learn more about the admissions process.

Admitted students and their families are invited to attend an Admitted Student Open House. Admitted Student Open House events will take place in March and April, and registration is required.

Please check with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions periodically for updates on campus tour availability and other opportunities to explore what it’s like to be a Terp!
