Welcome New Blue Jays!

Welcome to the Class of 2028 and incoming Transfer Students. We are super eager to welcome you to the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus in August 2024! There is so much for you to look forward to including moving to campus. Check out highlights below from our 2023 move-in day.

Situated within Student Affairs under Student Transitions and Family Engagement, both New Student Orientation and First-Year Experience exist to facilitate a successful transition to the Blue Jay and Baltimore community for all! This includes first-year students, transfer students, and their families. Through meaningful programs, events, and initiatives, we are here to help you navigate Homewood and its plethora of resources. We are your point of contact as your prepare for arrival as our newest Blue Jays. Always remember, you belong here!
