Community Lunch themes

Civic Engagement in Baltimore and Beyond

Hopkins students are leaders on campus, in Baltimore, and around the world. Join us for lunch with representatives from the Center for Social Concern and current students involved in our 60+ community service organizations to learn how Hopkins students are making major impacts in their communities.

Hands-On Learning

At the nation’s first research institution, Hopkins students are shaping their education with experiential learning opportunities including research, internships, and study abroad. Learn how students find these pre-professional positions, secure research funding, and receive recognition for their contributions.

Inclusive Community

The Hopkins community is committed to fostering an inclusive living and learning environment on the Homewood campus. Connect first-hand with students and staff members who bring together our diverse community through the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Hopkins Hillel, LGBTQ Life, and more.

Performing and Visual Arts

Whether you are interested in musical performance, acting, painting, or dancing, the Homewood campus has dynamic classes and organizations for you. With over 45 performing arts organizations and minors in music, theatre arts, and visual arts, students are able to pursue their passion for the arts during their time at Hopkins.

Student Life

In addition to pursuing academics, Hopkins students are leading over 400 clubs and organizations that range from dance and performing arts to service-based organizations and Sorority and Fraternity Life. Off campus, students enjoy all that Baltimore has to offer like famous sites, amazing food, and thriving arts and music scenes.
