will blossom more fully every year. You have learned the theories that underlie your field, and 
the ways to formulate and promote your ideas. You have also learned that asking the right 
question rather than getting the right answer is often the stepping-stone to knowledge. 

The Universitv' of Maryland has offered you opportunities to develop your interests and 
expand your horizons. You have made friends and found mentors, and they too will add value 
to your hfe in ways that none of us can specif)' today, even though history- makes us confident 
that it wiU happen. 

As you leave us, I would like you to know how much we, the faculty and stafi", respect your 
accomplishments as scholar, artist, athlete and leader — as individuals. You have enriched our 
lives and have helped the universits- reach new levels of distinction. We welcome you into the 
university's alumni family, a truly special group. 

I urge you to stay connected to Maryland and take full advantage of the benefits of being 
an alumnus of the university. I hope that you will continue to support us and help new gener- 
ations of students shape their futures as you have shaped yours. In this our 150th Anniversary 
year, please come back to campus tor the many celebrations, especially on April 29th tor 
Maryland Day 2006. 

You have my very best wishes for all your endeavors. We are proud of each and every one 
of you! Stay in touch. 



Yours sincerely, 
C. D. Mote, Jr. 
President

MESSAGE FROM THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 



M ongratulations. Graduates! 

■ l-lit;ht now, you are probably more concerned with graduating, packing and 

^^ <T preparing for life's next challenge than pondering an ongoing relationship with 
the Universirs- of Maryland. 

But once your diploma is on the wall, your apartment security deposit has been restored and 
your IM budd\- list is filled with new colleagues, I hope you will remember your alma mater. 

As a member of our alumni family, you have Terrapin spirit that only comes from spending 
years on campus, learning and growing. The university can harness that spirit to build a 
brilliant future — a future you share now that Maryland appears on your resume. 

Alumm association membership is the No. 1 way for you to demonstrate your spirit and 
keep m touch with the university. It also allows you to retain the relationships and resources 
that you have enjoyed here. 

The association is proud to offer you a complimentary one-year membership as a 
graduation gift. Once you activate it at vvww.alumm. umd.edu. your membership will: 

• provide access to professional networking receptions and social programming 

• allow you to take part in events at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center 

• give you the opportunits- to support future generations ot Terps 

In addition, the association has partnered with car and health insurers, as well as loan- 
consohdation companies to help ease your transition into post-college lite. Today, that transition 
is all consuming. But once it is complete, remember your university and stay connected. 

Congratulations on your graduation and best of luck to you in your new role as 
Marvlanci alumni. 




Sincerely, 

Danita D. Nias "81

H m VC'hile graduation is believed to be a time of 

^^L—^^ ending, the term "commencement" actually 
means beginning. We are celebrating a new start m which we 
will more fully mature into the skills, talents, experiences and 
personalities we have developed in the past few years. It is a 
time to see from where we have come, admire who we are 
today and imagine our potential. 

We are all focusing on our journeys in different ways, but 
we share a time period that others cannot tuUy comprehend as 
we do. We are witness to shared experiences on campus, in the 
local communitv' and in the world around us. We have created 
a community upon which to depend in times of need and 
with whom to celebrate in times of excitement. Our strength 
revolves around our individuality and compassion. 

Graduation is not a time to stop learning or sever this 
devotion to the University ot Maryland, tor it will always be 
our home. As much as these few years have helped us develop, 
our influence has made an indelible mark on this institution. 

Congratulations graduates and best wishes!

WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Conrinuing Commitment 
to Excellence 

From Its pre-CivilWar roots as 
the states first agricultural college 
and one of America's original land 
grant institutions, the University 
of Maryland has emerged as a 
public research university of 
national stature, highly regarded 
for its broad base of excellence in 
teaching and research. Marylancl s 
beautifiil 1,200-acre campus is in 
the heart of the 1-270 research 
corridor that is fiaehng a burgeon- 
ing information technology and 
biotechnology industry. 

The momentum of recent years 
has poised the university to take 
leadership in shaping the research 
university of the 21st century. By 
virtually every measure of quality, 
the UniversitN' of Mar\'land has 
gained national recognition as one 
of the fastest rising comprehensive 



research institutions in the country. 
Maryland is one of the nation's Top 
2(1 public national universities, and 
the quahty of our faculty is among 
the finest of any research university 
in the United States. 

There are 13 schools and 
colleges within the organizational 
structure of the University of 
Mar\-land. Seven of these units — 
the Smith School of Business, the 
College of Education, the Clark 
School of Engineering, the PhiUp 
Merrill College of Journalism, the 
College of Computer, Mathemati- 
cal and Physical Sciences, the 
College of Information Studies and 
the School of Public Policy — have 
been recognized by their peers and 
in various rankings as among the 25 
best in the nation. The breadth of 
this e.xcellence is a source of pride 
for students, faculty and staff, and is 
endorsement for the university's 



flagship stanis among the state's 
institutions ot higher education. 

The university also continues 
to move forward in the quality 
of our students and the support 
of our faithfijl alumni. Freshman 
admission is increasingly competi- 
tive. Last year 22,468 applications 
were received for only 4,223 spots 
in the Fall 2005 entering class. 
Once accepted students complete 
their academic journey, they will 
join a rapidly increasing family of 
alumni who are proud to be called 
Terps. Maryland Alumni Associa- 
tion membership has grown to 
more than 30,000 dues paying 
members since its inception in 1989. 

The university's commitment 
to quahty education in a research 
environment is key to its academic 
reputation and the success of its 
graduates. More than 100 centers 
and institutes are engaged in 
research and outreach. The research 
enterprise infijses the curriculum 
at both the undergraduate and 
graduate levels, e.xposing students 
to the most pressing issues and 
challenges in their discipline and 
traimng them to respond with 
rigor as well as creativity to con- 
temporary problems. 

Faculty at the University of 
Maryland, in all fields of knowl- 
edge, are engaged at the highest 
levels of national and international 
concern. The university's location 
near the center of federal pohcy- 
making and international political 
and economic activity enables it to 
play an active role in research and

History 

The University of Maryland 
was founded in 1 807 in Baltimore 
as a faculty-owned College of 
Medicine. The medical school 
was considered one ot the top 
schools in the country, attracting 
notable professors and lecturers 
fi-om throughout the world. In its 
beginning, tuition cost $140. grades 
were sent home weekly to parents, 
and students could obtain room 
and board for S300 annually. 

Five years later, the growing 
institution was renamed the 
Universitv' of Maryland. Despite 
the name, the university was not 
considered a state institution as it 
was still owned and operated by 
faculty. Baltimore College of 
Dental Surgery, the first dental 
school in the world, became a 
part of the university- in 1840, 
awarding the first Doctor of Dental 
Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 1841. 

In 1859. the Mary-land Agricul- 
tural College, which would evolve 
into the University- of Marykand, 
College ['ark, was opened under 



The University Is On the Move 

Leading the 'Way: Among Top 20 national pubhc universities, 
Maryland is No. 1 in the total number of degrees conferred upon 
African American students. 



Ne-w Homes for Innovation: We're building M Square, the Uiuversity 
of Maryland Research Park, which will bring nearly 6,500 new jobs to 
the area. The state of Maryland also approved S60.6 million in planning 
and construction fiinds, allowing us to break ground on a new Bioscience 
Research Building, bolstering the university's goal to provide regional 
leadership in education and research for the biosciences. 

Our Constellation of Stars: The quality of Maryland faculty ranks 
among the finest of any research university in the United States and 
includes two Nobel Prize winners, si.x Puhtzer Prize winners and 
scores of Fulbright scholars. 

Impact of Another Kind: NASA turned to the university to lead a 
$279 million mission that gave astronomers a first look inside a comet, 
revealing the pristine materials that form the basis of our solar system. 
Deep Impact hit Comet Tempel 1 on July 4, 2005, providing valuable 
information for researchers. 

Lighting a Path: The university- is embarking on a new fundraising 
campaign that includes among its goals raising at least $200 million 
for student scholarships, which are needed to ensure that lower- and 
middle-income students have the financial means to attain their 
degrees. Co-chairing this important effort is alumnus and men's head 
basketball coach Gary Williams and alumnus and national newswoman 
Connie Chung. 

An Economic Force: The University of Maryland generates $5.93 
of economic activity for every- dollar .appropriated by the General 
Assembly, providing a statewide impact of nearly $1.8 billion annually. 

Lending Knowledge: With three million volumes and eight libraries 
on campus, the university's hbrary system is the largest in the state. 

Protecting our Communities: The Maryland Fire and Rescue 
Institute trained more than 31,500 sorely needed professionals during 
the last fiscal vear.

a charter secured by a group of 
Maryland planters in 1856. In 
addition to spending one hour 
each day hoeing or plowing on the 
college farm, students took a broad 
range of courses in ancient and 
modern languages, natural sciences, 
English and mathematics. After a 
disastrous fire on campus in 1912, 
the state acquired the college and 
rebuilt it. 

In 1920, the state legislature 
combined the College Park institu- 
tion with the professional schools 
in Baltimore to form an expanded 
University of Maryland. The entity 
eventually grew to include campuses 
in Baltimore County, the Eastern 
Shore and University College, a 
continuing education institution. 

The following decades saw the 
increasing growth of student popu- 
lation, excellence in programs and 
curricula, and the burgeoning 
of the University of Maryland, 
College Park, into a nationally 
recognized research institution. 

July 1, 1988, marked the dawn 
of a new era in higher education 
in the state of Maryland, as the five 
components of the university were 
merged with six other state univer- 
sities and colleges to form the 
University System of Maryland, 
and the University of Maryland, 
College Park, secured its flagship 
status with a mandate to become 
one of the pre-eminent research 
universities in the nation. 



The Alumni Association 

With alumm clubs from Miami 
to Taipei, Taiwan, the Maryland 
Alumni Association strives to keep 
and strengthen ties between the 
university and its graduates. 

Member events such as pre- 
game parties, bull roasts, picnics, 
golf tournaments, dinner cruises and

Customs of Commencement 

Early comjiienceniciit ccrcinomcs 
at the University of Maryland 
were marked with great fanfare 
and celebration. The faculty gave 
huge banquets for the graduates 
the night before the event. The 



following morning.crowds gathered 
to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occasion, 
attracting not only friends and rela- 
nves, but the fashionable elite of the 
day. At the ceremony, prayers were 
recited.speeches were made.and 
honorary degrees were awarded 
to distinguished figures from across 
the country. Finally, as the audience 
cheered and threw flowers, the 
graduates came forward to collect 
their Latin-inscribed degrees. 

Academic Costume 

The black caps and gowns worn 
by the students and faculty in the 
academic procession have been the 
traditional costume of scholars since 
the Middle Ages. The ordinary dress 
of the scholar, whether student or 
teacher, was similar to that ot a 
cleric. Caps and gowns were 
probably worn to keep students 
warm in unheated buildings. Many 
medieval scholars were tonsured, 
hke monks, and hoods served to 
cover their shaved heads until the 
skuUcap later took its place. 

Even after the Civil War, most 
students at American universities 
wore caps and gowns daily while 
in residence. These varied in design 
until they were standardized by the 
American Intercollegiate 
Commission in 1894. At that time 
it was decided that all robes would 
be black. Colors on the trim of the 
gown were also standardized to 
indicate the scholar's academic 
discipline.

The tassel may also be colored 
to represent an academic discipline 
or it may be black. Officially, the 
tassel is perimtted "to lie where it 
will" on the mortarboard. Howx'ver. 
numerous institutions have adoptetl 
the practice of having degree 
candidates wear the ta.ssel on the 
right front side at the start of the 
commencement ceremony and 
then shift them to the left side 
after degrees are awarded. 



Student Marshals 

Elected through a nomination 
process, student marshals are senior 
leaders who play an important 
role in the graduation ceremony. 
Student marshals assist in organizing 
the thousands of graduates, leading 
them smoothly through the 
commencement procession. They 
also supply extra caps and hoods, 
and bobby pins to keep headwear 
secure. December 2005 marshals are 
listed on page 65 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

Since 1910, members of the 
graduating class have supported 
a senior gift designed to 
conuneinorate their college 
experience. Traditionally the 
gift serves as a contribution to 
the campus community that 
forever links alumni with the 
university. Past gifts include the 
Testudo statue, gardens, artwork, 
contributions to the library and 
support for projects such as the 
Jim Benson statue and the sundial. 

The M circle is a Maryland 
icon. It's probably one of the things 
remembered most about campus 
upon graduation. The Class of 
2005 has the chance to leave its 
mark on campus by placing a similar 
landmark near Lot 1 and the 
Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center — 
one that will inspire students, 
impress visiting football teams and 
become a symbol for alumni. 

This year, the Senior Council 
has arranged to landscape that circle 
for the 2005-2006 Senior Class Gift.

Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the 
successfiil completion of a course 
of study. There are more than 
1 ,600 different academic degrees 
currently conferred by colleges 
and universities nationwide. The 
Universiry of Maryland oflers 
degrees in 90 undergraduate 
majors,97 master's programs, 73 
doctoral programs and one first 
professional degree. 

The Doctor's Degree 

The doctor's degree represents 
the most ad\™iced earned degree 
conferred by American institutions. 
There are two distinct tN-pes: the 
practitioners degree and the 
research degree. The first type 
represents advanced trauung for 
the practice of various professions, 
principally Doctor of Medicine. 
Juris Doctor. Doctor of Pharmacy, 
and Doctor otVeterinary Medicine. 
These degrees do not involve the 
completion of original research 
by the student. The University of 
Mar\land.at the professional school 
in Baltimore, awarded the first 
two dental degrees ever on 



March 9,1841, and invented the 
name of the degree. Doctor of 
Dental Surgery (D.D.S.). 

The University of Maryland 
conveys the Doctor ot'Veterman.' 
Medicine (D.V.M.) to 
approximately 90 students 
each year in a program that 
was instinited in 1980. Graduates 
receive a diploma containing 
the seals of both the Universirs- 
of Maryland and its partner 
institution, the Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute and State University. 

The second type is the research 
doctorate representing prolonged 
periods ot advanced study. 
A dissertanon that usually 
accompames the study is intended 
to contribute substantially to the 
body of knowledge on the subject. 
The most important of these.the 
Doctor of Philosophy, no longer 
has an implication of philosophy 
for its holder, but represents 
advanced research in any of the 
major fields of knowledge. It was 
first awarded in the United States 
in 1861 by Yale University.The 
University of Maryland awarded a 
Ph.D.for the first time in 1920. 

The Master's Degree 

The master's degree is an academic 
honor bestowed upon students 
who have successfiilly completed 
work beyond the baccalaureate. 

A thesis and an oral examination 
are usually required. In 1920, the 
Universit\- of Mar\-land awarded 
Its first Master of Arts (M.A.) and 
Master of Science (M.S.) degrees 
in fields other than agriculture. 



The Bachelor's Degree 

The bachelor's degree represents 
the completion of a four-year 
course of coUege-level study 
and is the oldest acadenuc degree 
awarded by American institutions 
of higher learning. It was first 
conferred in America in 1642 on 



the first nine graduates of Har\'ard 
College. Maryland Agricultural 
College, which later became the 
University of Maryland. College 
Park, awarded its first Bachelor 
of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of 
Science (B.S.) in 1862.

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 



Students and parents awarded him for being an outstanding faculty' member. Students 
also chose him for an honor from Kappa Delta Pi. an international education honor 
societ\-. For [ohn Splaine. the rewards of being an educator reaUy come from being 
around those who want to learn and "encouraging them to explore their interests." 

An associate professor emeritus in the College of Education and recently retired Amos B. 
Hostetter.Jr.. chair at the Universm- of Denver where he taught courses in political communi- 
cation. Splaine began his teaching career as a high school history teacher in New Hampshire. 
He directed the Unlversit^• of New Hampshire's Upward Bmind program for low-income 
college students from 1970 to 197.3. He then came to the university, where he taught full time 
until 2(101. He still teaches foundations of education courses part-time. 

He believes that involving students in their learning enriches the process."! try to challenge 
students to think for themselves. However, 1 believe that they need knowledge in order to 
think criticalK' about what they read, hear and see," he says. 

He took this concept to Croatia and Yugoslavia a few years ago. Working through Croatia's 
Solidarity- Center and then m Montenegro, Splaine used his experience on political campaigns 
to teach courses in media literacy for teachers used to government propaganda. Splaine says 
that being even a small part of the regions "peaceful revolution was a great adventure. One 
of the highlights of my life." 

Another higlilight was being named a Philip Merrill Presidential Scholars Program Faculty 
Mentor in 2000. The program honors the university's most successful seniors and their desig- 
nated umversity faculty and K-12 teachers for their mentorship 

Splaine earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in American history from the University 
of New Hampshire, and a doctorate in education from Boston University. His 1994 book, A 
Compaiiioii to the Liiicoln-Doughn /)(7n)fM, was published to accompany C-SPAN"s televised re- 
enactments of the 1858 events. A companion CD-ROM, "A House Divided; The Lincoln- 
Douglas Debates," received the Gold Apple award from the National Educational Media 
Network. He's been an education consultant for the network for 18 years, including work 
on its Peabody Award-winning series "American Presidents: Life Portraits."

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Samy Bassam Muaddi 



As part of a class that has seen September 1 Is horror, the war m Iraq and Hurricane 
Katrina "s devastation, Samy Bassam Miiaddi beheves more than ever m the inter- 
connectedness ot' humanit}'. His actions support this belief, as he has spent consid- 
erable rime on communirv'-buildmg eiforts locally, narionally and internationally. 

While earning academic honors every semester as an economics major, Samy found time to 
not just get involved with, but to create a few university' groups. His most significant endeavor 
attests to his commitment to the idea of unity. Two years ago, amidst campus tensions bet\veen 
Jewish and Arab students, he co-founded The Common Grounds Project. A coUaborative effort 
between the Jewish Leadership Council and the Organization of Arab Students, it asks Palestin- 
ian Americans and IsraeH Americans "to come together to explore what common ground we 
have to stand on. It is a process of eUminaring e.xisting layers ot mistrust and building in their 
place genuine understanding of our commonahties and their limits," says the College Park 
Scholar, who received a citation in Business, Society and the Economy last year. 

This past summer, Samy, a first-generarion Arab American, interned with Beit Sahour 
mumcipaUtx' in the Palestinian territory of the West Bank, writing successful grant proposals for 
humanitarian aid and development projects. "I gained a greater appreciation for my family and 
why my parents raised me the way they did," he says of the experience. 

He has earned high praise from Shibley Telhami, Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Devel- 
opment, who taught Samy in an International Relations and World Politics course. "He was the 
only student to earn an A+, which is unusual in my classes," says Telhami. "He struck me as an 
intelligent and thoughthal young man who deserves to be recognized." 

Through all this. Samy still found time to play. He co-founded Terp Runners, participating 
in several marathons, and a Debkeh troupe that performs traditional Arabic folklore dance on 
and off campus. 

His fliture goals include working on economic development in Middle Eastern and 
sub-Saharan Africa, and convincing his parents to write their autobiographies.
