HOME: Hopkins Overnight Multicultural Experience
Thursday, September 25–Saturday, September 27, 2014
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is proud to present H.O.M.E.—an on-campus, overnight program experience connecting African American, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and multiracial high school seniors to the clubs, organizations, and resources that bring together our multicultural community.
H.O.M.E. takes place in conjunction with our fall Open House program on Saturday, September 27. All students participating in the H.O.M.E. program will also enjoy Open House activities.
An application for H.O.M.E. is required. To apply, please fill out the application, including the essay portion. After completing the online application and essay, please fax/email your transcript and SAT/ACT scores to the attention of: H.O.M.E. Coordinator at (443) 451-6971 or e-mail them to email@example.com. While our preference is to receive official scores and transcripts, for the purpose of this application we will accept unofficial documents on a case by case basis.
Applications and required materials must be received by Friday, September 5, at 5:00 p.m. (EDT); Decisions may be released on a rolling basis. There is no guarantee space will remain by this posted deadline.
Due to limited space, this is a selective program. Each year, we aim to bring to campus a diverse group of students from different backgrounds and experiences. Participation in H.O.M.E. is not a reflection of any admissions decision and students who do not attend or are not accepted into the program will not be negatively impacted in the admissions process. Please contact us at the above email if you have any questions.
Please do not make travel arrangements for the program until you have been contacted about your application status.
Students attending the H.O.M.E. program are invited to stay overnight in a residence hall room with a current Johns Hopkins student host for the duration of the program. If you have any special requirements, please let us know on your registration form. If your parents would like to visit the campus during your stay for the H.O.M.E. program, they will need to arrange their own accommodations (see Information for Parents below).
Information for Parents
The H.O.M.E. program is specifically geared toward prospective students in their senior year of high school. Parents are invited to participate in the Open House on Saturday, September 27.
