Washington College Multicultural Student Overnight Experience

We invite you to join us for the Multicultural Student Overnight Experience on Saturday, April 5 through Sunday, April 6, 2014. The overnight experience will allow you to experience the vibrant social life of Washington College and interact with your future classmates. As students are making their final decision on where to spend the next four years of their academic studies, we hope our program will allow you to ask questions to our staff and students on a personal level.

You will be paired with one of the Office of Multicultural Affairs Student Ambassadors for the evening. The ambassadors will also be available to you during your admissions process. 

If you are interested in participating, please contact Darnell T. Parker, Assistant Dean of Multicultural Affairs at multicultural_affairs@washcoll.edu or contact your Washington College admissions counselor. 

The deadline for registration is Friday, March 28, 2014.

Travel Assistance:

Limited assistance with travel funding for the Multicultural Overnight Experience is available. 

What to Bring:

It is recommended that you pack lightly! Be sure to bring a blanket/sleeping bag, pillow, towel, shower slippers, toiletries, and any medications you may be taking.

Safe Space


WC Safe SpaceThe Safe Space Program at Washington College strives to create an inclusive environment for all members of the campus community. Safe Space is a nationally recognized program that provides educational training designed to support and create a network of allies for the Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay, and Transgender (LGBT) community on-campus. The Safe Space stickers displayed in offices, workplaces and student rooms provide a visible indication of faculty, staff, and students who have participated in the Safe Space training and gained knowledge about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity in the hopes of improving the campus climate. Through the Safe Space program, members of the community will serve as a resource to the LBGT community and may help those with questions or whom need assistance find the appropriate campus resource.

Participation in the safe space program is voluntary and open to all Washington College faculty, staff, and students.

For more information or interested in scheduling training for a group or organization, please contact the Office of Multicultural Affairs at 410-810-8466, Darnell T. Parker, Assistant Dean for Multicultural Affairs.
