Freshmen Commuter Retreat

Join OCSS for our annual Freshmen Commuter Retreat!  This experience is designed to support you and your transition from high school to the UMBC Community. At UMBC, we value relationships, connecting with others and building community. This is a special opportunity for you to ignite your own creativity and leadership while forming lasting friendships.

There are two options: an off-campus ropes course and an on-campus team challenge cup.  Everyone who attends gets free lunch and a t-shirt, and transportation to the off-campus ropes course is included.  Depending on the experience that you choose, the physical demand ranges from low to moderate – no experience is needed!

Past participants have really enjoyed the Freshmen Commuter Retreat!  Here’s what some past participants have said:


I met my best friend at the Commuter Retreat — I’m so glad I attended!

It was a great opportunity to meet new students and feel connected.

After attending this retreat, I feel like a part of the UMBC community.
