The absolute best, most traditional, most fun, most over-the-top event at Washington College is coming up in just 11 days…BIRTHDAY BALL!!
Some back story: WC has been celebrating George Washington’s birthday for more years than he would probably want to admit. Every fall, a planning committee gets together to create the most amazing birthday party that anyone, even George, could ask for. One of the best parts is the fact that there is a different theme every year AND the student body gets to vote on said theme. Past years we’ve seen themes like the Wizard of Oz, The Great Gatsby, Winter Wonderland, and Alice in Wonderland. This year’s theme is Harry Potter so you I’ll be there with some serious Slytherin accessories (no shame). No matter the theme, the decorations are always mesmerizing and the dance floor is always superb. But even better than all of that is the fact that everyone is there. Professors, staff, students, alumni, friends, parents, even the President and First Lady Reiss are there!
Now that I’ve said all of that, let me say this: you absolutely MUST come to Birthday Ball at least once in your lifetime. Or, even better, apply to Washington College and before you know it you will have gone to 4 Birthday Balls!

So we’re heading to a Panera in Towson, MD today along with 7 of our awesome colleagues to do off-campus interviews! We are pretty excited beause:
1. We are completely booked up for every time slots. That means we get to spread Washington College love to A LOT of prospective students!
2. We get to sit in a Panera and eat delicious food for like 6 hours…WHAT ELSE COULD BE BETTER?!
If you are coming tonight, we can’t wait to meet you! If not, check out our website to see if we will be doing off-campus interviews in your area soon.
This blog is the perfect place for us to interact with prospective students, parents, and even counselors. We can answer your questions about Washington College, Chestertown, college life, or just admissions in general.
At the same time, you can keep up with us and our daily lives in the admissions office. So follow us through the travel season, reading season, and all of the other adventures in between. We promise, it definitely WILL NOT be all business.
