Visits and Events

There's no better way to get to know Hood College than in person. From your very first Hello, to seeing our beautiful campus, feeling the energy of students and faculty, and exploring Frederick, you'll know if this is the place for you.


At Hood College we have a tradition of greeting, smiling or nodding to everyone we pass—we call it our “Hood Hello.” We value a warm and welcoming community, and the Hood Hello is just one of the many ways you will always be greeted by a friendly face. I hope you will visit campus soon so that our admission staff, students, faculty, coaches and even President Chapdelaine have the opportunity to offer you a Hood Hello!
