Happy New Year, we hope you’re enjoying winter break.
Every spring the University of Maryland Office of Undergraduate Admissions hosts admitted students from underrepresented populations on campus in an overnight overstay program called EDGE (Experience Diversity, Growth, & Excellence). This year there has been a slight change to the program; it has been changed from a 2-night stay program to a 1-night stay. This is a very successful program where we can attract talented students to the University of Maryland and show what vibrant and exciting experiences and opportunities we can offer them here at Maryland.
We are looking for talented students like you to be hosts for our program.
There will be four separate EDGE overnight stay programs:
March 1st – March 2nd
March 29th – 30th
April 5th – 6th
April 19th – 20th
SAVE THE DATES:
- Interviews for hosts will be held the week of February 6th. More information to follow.
-The host training session will be held on Wednesday, February 15th
From 6:00PM-7:30PM in the Visitors Center
Your participation with this program will help us have a positive impact on the enrollment of underrepresented students at the University of Maryland. Hosts are an integral part of this program and we are very appreciative of your assistance. Please let us know if you would like to participate by completing the attached form and returning it by email, fax, or in person to me in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Additionally, if you have friends that would be interested in helping with this important event please encourage them to contact me.
I would also like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Garrett Cottrell and I will be working with Monique Hyppolite to Co-Chair the 2012 EDGE Program. We are both new to the EDGE program and are excited to be working with returning and new hosts this year! Monique and I are both excited for a successful EDGE program and hope you are too!
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this email if you would be interested in participating in any or all of these dates.
