The First-Year Experience

Starting college can be a big transition. In addition to a week-long orientation, you’ll be assigned a First-Year Mentor–-an upperclassman who will help you learn your way around Hopkins. In the classroom, First-Year Seminars provide a welcoming learning environment, so you can build relationships with faculty who are invested in your intellectual journey from day one.

I’ve made lifelong friends and unforgettable memories. The Student Involvement Fairs, club flyers in the Breezeway, and all the campus events make getting involved here fun and easy.
