Let us first acknowledge this: COVID-era fun is different from pre-COVID fun.
We know that a game night at home is not a game at Homewood Field, and that a streamed concert is not a night at the Ottobar. A socially distanced picnic is not Spring Fair, and the Houseparty app is not a house party.
We’re not doing big gatherings at the moment because it’s unsafe for you, for Hopkins, and for Baltimore. Right now we’re doing other stuff. We’ve curated a list below of experiences and activities that are either entirely virtual or local to the greater Baltimore area, and are possible to do while adhering to university protocols about masking and social distancing and gathering limitations.
We know there are a lot of “what to do during COVID….have you tried going for a walk?” lists out there. We wanted ours to be different and better. To that end, we’ve tried to limit our suggestions to things that are genuinely fun and worthwhile. We wanted to give you a list of places, ideas, and activities that will help you build quality relationships and wonderful college memories.
Some basic advice:
