Terp For A Day

Experience life as a Maryland student.

Terp For A Day offers students the opportunity to connect with current undergraduate students and experience what a typical day in the life of a Terp is like! You’ll spend the day with a student host to connect with other undergraduates, attend classes and participate in extracurricular activities. Reservations are required and encouraged to be made two weeks in advance.

Terp For A Day sessions during the spring semester are reserved for admitted students only; the fall semester is open to prospective and admitted students. Terp For A Day visits are only available Monday through Friday. The more flexible you are in reserving the date for your Terp For A Day visit, the more likely we’ll be able to connect you with a student who shares your preferred interests. Due to host availability, students are not guaranteed pairing with someone in their major. Once registered, guests will receive a confirmation email within 2-3 days and you will be connected with your student host for the day.
