Want to get involved with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions?

Current students can participate in many ways to share their experiences with prospective Hopkins students.

Things you can do:

  • Give tours to visiting students and their guests
  • Host prospective and admitted students overnight
  • Help plan and execute on-campus events for prospective students
  • Interact with students interested in Hopkins online through blogs and other social media platforms
  • Share your student experience to help recruit incoming classes
  • Identify future student volunteers

Blue Key Society (BKS, or Blue Key)

Blue Key Society’s mission is to engage with prospective and admitted undergraduate students and serve as the face of the university through many different visitor interactions. Members are generally students who are not only active in the Hopkins community—both inside and outside the classroom—but also in the city of Baltimore. BKS members are interested in learning about the experiences of prospective and admitted students. An application is required to become involved in BKS.

The deadline to apply was September 30.

A few of the things our volunteers do:

  • Become an official campus Tour Guide and showcase the student experience to our campus visitors (prospective students, admitted students, and special groups). This includes special engineering lab tours in the fall and spring semesters.
  • Participate in specialized committees focused on programming related to Access and Diversity, International Student Experience, and Marketing and Communications efforts.
  • Assist with the Spring Open House Overnight Program (SOHOP), Fall Open House, admitted student days, student panels, and other admissions events through our Events Committee.
