Important Information for Admission Visitors: A campus improvement project requires our Admission House visitors to access our office and its reserved parking by utilizing an alternate campus entrance. Instead of turning onto Hood College's campus using the main entrance (Hood Dr.), we ask that you use Martha Church Dr. which is the entrance just after Hood Dr. (when traveling east toward downtown Frederick). The Admission House is the second building on your right, and parking can be accessed by taking your first right. Guests should park in the designated spots behind the Admission House and enter through the rear building entrance.  Please note that the Admission House and convenient parking is not accessible if you enter campus using Hood Dr.
