Convocation is the first official welcome new students experience in the Fall when they come together to hear from UMBC Faculty, Staff, & peers. Convocation ends with a FREE Community BBQ.
Welcome Week Soccer Games
Each year we kick off the fall with our Men & Women’s home soccer games. This is a chance to come and cheer on the Retrievers to victory. New students can also pick up their FREE signature Retriever Scarf.
Cultural Showcase: Pangea
Every year UMBC’s cultural and ethnic student organizations come together for one night to connect with students and showcase everything from organization information to cultural traditions to meaningful experiences and events that are important to their culture.
