Apply to be a EDGE Overnight Host for Prospective Terps

Each Spring, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions invites admitted students from underrepresented populations on campus in an overnight stay program called EDGE (Experience Diversity, Growth, & Excellence). This highly successful overnight stay program helps to attract talented students to the University of Maryland by showcasing opportunities offered and the experiences of current students in informal settings.


The search is on for current students who are willing to share their story and serve as an Overnight Host. Each host will take one or more prospective students to stay overnight in their residence hall. The program is especially in need of additional male hosts.


EDGE will host 2 overnight stay programs -- April 5 and April 12, 2018. It is preferred that Hosts participate in both event dates; however, availability for only one of the two dates does not preclude your participation.


Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 7th. Applications can be submitted online in PDF format to oua-edge@umd.edu. If you prefer to drop your application off in person, please bring your completed application to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions located on the bottom floor of the Mitchell Building between 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Interviews will be conducted during the week of February 12 - 16.


Should you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact OUA-EDGE@umd.edu.
