News at Smith

Welcome & Welcome Back, Fall 2012

Sep 04, 2012


 The Smith School welcomes hundreds of new faces this fall -- all ready to start an exciting new school year at the University of Maryland. MBA students and MS students were the first to arrive at Van Munching Hall in mid-August for orientations that included special speakers and team-building activities. For four years now, Ernst & Young has hosted the Freshmen Fellows Orientation at Smith, welcoming bright-eyed, eager students to the top-ranked business school. This year’s orientation took place on Aug. 28, 2012, with a theme of “navigating change in your life and career.” The week of September 10 is Smith's Annual "Business Week" for undergraduates, which includes a career fair, club bazaar and much more. Smith also welcomed new PhD students and 14 new faculty members. See the stories below for videos, pictures and highlights on the start of the fall 2012 semester.
