A Virtual Open House and Program Exploration Event 

CUMBERLAND, Md. (Mar. 24, 2021) – Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) will host a virtual open house from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 10. The “ACM Presents... Program Connections” open house offers future students and their families the chance to meet with academic program directors and instructors by selecting from one of 13 program-specific breakout rooms. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to virtually tour the Cumberland campus and on-site student housing complex, and be part of our Recruitment Staff’s general college question and answer session. The open house, hosted via Zoom, will end with a quick survey and a random drawing to win a $500 tuition voucher to attend the college. The winner of the drawing will be contacted in the week following the event.

Representatives from more than 30 academic and career programs, including transfer programs, will be present in the 13 breakout rooms. Programs and divisions to be represented include: the arts and humanities, automotive, business, accounting and economics, computer technology, criminal justice and legal studies, education, forestry, general studies, health and medical, hospitality and culinary, multimedia technology, the sciences, and social and behavioral sciences. 

Preregistration is available online at, or by calling 301-784-5120 to learn more. Registration closes at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 9. 

“Choosing a college is a big decision. It’s frequently a family decision. Using Zoom, we can help families explore possible program majors and learn about ACM together, even if they’re not in the same location. We want them to feel informed and empowered about their options, whether that’s being introduced to the benefits of a transfer degree, understanding the application and enrollment process, or learning about what Student Services are available,” said Sue Rowan, ACM’s coordinator of Student Recruitment

Prior to the open house event, interested individuals may email for additional information. They may also text or email an ACM recruiter. Lauren Winterberg is available for questions at or via text at 301-298-2637, and Sean Aurigemma is available at or 301-321-7245.
