Visit AGNR!

Whether you've just been admitted to UMD and the College of AGNR or you're a prospective student, we want to connect with you!

We know that the college search and selection process can be overwhelming, but we're here to help in any way possible. We encourage you to visit with us to learn more about AGNR and experience what it would be like to be a Terp.

Please contact our recruitment team with any questions or if you would like to further customize your visit experience! You can reach Kristen Coffey or April Brohawn at 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and keeping in mind the health and safety of our future Terps, we will not be hosting in-person visit opportunities in Fall 2020. Instead, we are focusing on offering a wide array of virtual visits and information sessions open to all prospective Terps, their families, and educators. We hope you will join us at one of our opportunities listed below this fall!
