Our staff, along with the support of our students staff, plan and create a range of programs and events throughout the year that help students engage and relax outside of the classroom. Typical events in the past include:
- Trips to local Farms and Farmers Markets
- Late Night BINGO
- Haunted House Trip
- Movie Screenings on Homewood Field
We engage faculty and staff members in our programming and work to allow our students to get to know faculty better through events, meals, and discussions. Our goal in this is for students to build meaningful relationships with faculty members outside of and in addition to the classroom and labs. The types of events can span from Orioles Games and trips to local Baltimore farms to discussions over meals or cooking classes in the Residence Halls.
Each Tuesday we invite faculty and staff to join us for Community Nights in our dining hall, the Fresh Food Cafe (FFC). We hope to strengthen the One Hopkins experience and have any JHU faculty and staff member enjoy a meal with students, colleagues, or bring their families, at no cost. The goal is to be together, in community, and students begin to see faculty and staff outside of the traditional classroom and office setting. We also offer this same invitation to attend any of the Sterling Brunches, a tradition that holds a special place in the hearts of our students. Sterling Brunch includes a live jazz band, elevated menus, and a larger community eating experience. If you would like to attend any (or all!) of these events in the Fall of 2019, simply email the Dining Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
If you are a faculty or staff member and interested in learning more about engagement opportunities, please contact Shawn Washart at email@example.com.
