RE: Baltimore Scholars Mid-Summer Get- Together: Hopkins Here I Come
WHEN: 6:15 p.m. - 9 p.m., Thursday, July 14
WHERE: Hodson Hall
The Johns Hopkins University
3400 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, Md. 21218

In preparation for their freshman year at The Johns Hopkins University, the first group of Baltimore Scholars and their parents are invited to gather on the Homewood campus July 14 to meet university President William R. Brody, administrators and faculty members, current undergraduates, and, of course, each other before the 2005-2006 academic year begins Thursday, Sept. 8.

The Baltimore Scholars program provides full-tuition scholarships to graduates of Baltimore City public schools accepted into the university's undergraduate programs. There are 21 Baltimore Scholars in the class of 2009.

After a light supper to start the July 14 event, parents will meet with representatives from Academic Advising, Residential Life, and Financial Aid to ask questions and to be briefed on what to expect from Johns Hopkins as their children begin their university career. At the same time, students will meet current undergraduates to hear about the transition to college life and to discuss some opportunities for involvement in leadership development or community service activities. Students will then be able to talk with a panel of faculty members about courses, classes, and careers.

Ten of the Baltimore Scholars are graduates of Baltimore City College, nine are graduates of Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, one is a graduate of Baltimore School For The Arts, and one is a graduate of Paul Laurence Dunbar High School.

The media is welcome to attend the event to learn more about the program and meet the Baltimore Scholars and their parents. For information, contact Amy Cowles at (443) 287-9960 or amycowles@jhu.edu.
