B'More: A Common Freshman Experience


Monday, January 23 to Friday, January 27, 2017

Intersession 2017 marks the ninth year of the B'More Program. We have a great line up of courses that introduce freshmen to Baltimore and help them establish a relationship that will transcend beyond the program and their time at Hopkins. The program as a whole will immerse students into the city, and show them the ways in which the city’s civic and cultural resources can enhance a Hopkins education. Students will identify ways that Baltimore will contribute to their overall educational goals, and they will be called to action to make a contribution to the city and its residents. There are integrated activities in the afternoon that serve to reinforce the courses, as well as social and service activities that will enhance class spirit throughout the last week of Intersession.

Monday, January 23, 2017 - First day of the B'More Program, report to your class in the morning at 10 AM. Please visit this website for the complete B'More Schedule, which will include your classroom time, site visits, program events and community service.
