Getting to the Fair

Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center

The venue is located on the University of Maryland campus, nestled between Lot Z and the football stadium. Rub Testudo’s nose, then head down the curved staircase to find the main entrance.

Students who plan to drive may check where their permit allows. Lot Z and Lot 1 are near the venue. Note that Stadium Drive Garage will not be available. If possible, we encourage students to walk from their residence halls if living on campus. Check the weather and wear appropriate outerwear and footwear.

Use this campus map to help you navigate your way to the fair.

Dress to Impress

Business professional attire is very strongly encouraged for the fair. This is a professional recruiting event.

Business Professional Dress

  • Full suit with a blazer, button-down with tie or a blouse, and slacks or a skirt or sheath dress with closed-toe dress shoes

Ultimately, we want you to show your authentic self; wear something professional that you think speaks to your personal brand and allows you to feel confident. Your attire should help you make a positive first impression and show you’re rising to the occasion.

Given this is a professional recruiting event, jeans, athleisure, and casual attire are not appropriate. Reach out to OCS if you need help planning your attire.
