Today you complete the jour- 
ney that was undertaken sev- 
eral years ago, arriving 
proudly at the threshold of a 
new Ufe. When you look back, can you see 
ho\\- this journey has changed you? As you 
sit here today, what events stand out in your 
muid as experiences that showed you which 
path to travel? 

We have each followed a unique path hut 
have reached a common destination. As 
seniors, it is easier to list the ways in which 
we are diiierent from each other than the 
ways in which we are bound together. 

We are accustomed to describing students in groups — commuters, residents; members of 
ethnic, reUgious, or professional organizations; students in particular departments and colleges. 
These differences should be admired and respected as should the many quahties we share. 

From this point, you can reflect on past journeys. Remember w-hat you learned along the 
way about who you are and what you are capable of achieving. 

Know that your time spent at the University of Maryland will help you arrive at your next 
destination. Finally, always consider our campus to be another home, a stop on your hfe's jour- 
ney to which you can always return. 
Congratulations!

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Bold New Era 

From its pre-Civil War roots as the 
state's first agricultural college and 
one of America's original land 
grant institutions, the University ot 
Maryland, College Park, has 
emerged as a pubhc research uni- 
versity of national stature, highly 
regarded for its broad base of 
excellence in teaching and 
research. The momentum of recent 
years has poised the university to 
move into the top ranks of higher 
education and take leadership in 
shaping the research university of 
the 21st century. 

The university's commitment 
to quality education in a research 
environment is key to its academic 
reputation and the success of its 
graduates. The research enterprise 
infiases the curriculum at both the 
undergraduate and graduate levels. 



exposing students to the most 
pressing issues and challenges in 
their disciphne and traimng them 
to respond with rigor as well as 
creativity to contemporary prob- 
lems. 

There are 13 schools and col- 
leges within the orgamzational 
structure of the University of 
Maryland. Seven of these units-the 
Smith School of Business, the Col- 
lege of Education, the Clark 
School of Engineering, the Col- 
lege of Journalism, the College of 
Computer, Mathematical and 
Physical Sciences, the College of 
Library and Information Services 
and the School of Pubhc Afiairs- 
have been recognized by their 
peers and in various rankings as 
among the 25 best in the nation. 
Programs within the other units 
have also achieved high levels of 



recognition. Our School of Music, 
for example, has been ranked 30th 
nationwide. The breadth of this 
excellence is a source of pride for 
students, faculty and staff, and is 
endorsement for the university's 
flagship status among the state's 
institutions of higher education. 

The university has enjoyed a 
period of rapid advancement in all 
of the areas that atfect quality. The 
qualifications of entering students 
have risen each year tor the past 
1 years, and SATs now range 
fi-om 1150 to 1320 for the mid-50 
percent tier of students. In fall 
1999, 1,239 of the nearly 4,000 
admitted first year students scored 
1300 or above on their SATs. 
Sponsored research has doubled in 
the same 10-year period, and has 
reached $203 milHon for P>'99. 
Private giving has increased even 
more dramatically, from $ 1 8 mil- 
hon per year at the start of the 
decade to $81.7 million in FY99. 
Alumni Association membership 
has been growing at an average 
rate of 10 percent a year since 
1992. Coupled with renewed 
commitment fi"om the state of 
Maryland for funding flagship ini- 
tiatives, these factors ensure that 
the umversiry vvill continue on a 
forward trajectory for many years 
to come. 

One of the largest research 
universities in the United States, 
current enrollment stands at 
24,717 undergraduate and 8,147 
graduate students. There are 110

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



undergraduate programs, 100 mas- 
ter's programs and 70 doctoral 
programs, and more than 100 cen- 
ters and institutes engaged in 
research and outreach. 

The university has licensed 
more than 750 technologies since 
1986, and has been issued 135 U.S. 
patents. An average of two new 
invention disclosures each week 
are received by the Office of 
Technology Liaison, a reflection of 
the pace of innovative technolo- 
gies being created at the university. 

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 
analysis of public policy. Strong 
links to the scientific and techno- 
logical agencies and organizations 
of the federal government drive 
research in the environment, engi- 
neering, physics, computer science, 
life sciences and agriculture. Schol- 
arship in the arts, humanities and 
social sciences is marked by the 
spirit of intellectual diversity and 
interdisciphnary collaboration. 

Maryland is one of only 32 
public research universities in the 
prestigious 61 -member Association 
of American Universities and the 
only public institution in the 
Maryland-D.C. area with member- 
ship in the nation's most distin- 



guished honor society. Phi Beta 
Kappa. It is classified as a 
Research-I university by the 
Carnegie Foundation by virtue of 
the range of its baccalaureate pro- 
grams, the amount ot federal sup- 
port received, and the number of 
doctoral degrees awarded each 
year, sharing that honor with the 
top research universities in the 
country.

History 

The University of Maryland was 
founded in 1807 in Baltimore as a 
faculty-owned College of Medi- 
cine. The medical school was con- 
sidered one of the top schools in 
the country, attracting notable pro- 
fessors and lecturers from through- 
out the world. In its beginning, 
tuition cost $140, grades were sent 
home weekly to parents, and stu- 
dents could obtain room and 
board for $300 annually. 

Five years later, the growing 
institution was renamed the 



In fiscal year 1999, grant and contract awards to the 
University of Maryland totaled more than $203 million. 

The September 1998 issue o{ Kipliiij^cr's Personal 
Finance Alagazinc named Maryland one of' the top 25 
values among the nations public universities. 

Rankings continue to reinforce Maryland's rising 
reputation. In the latest U.S. News & World Report 
look at undergraduate schools, the Clark School of 
Engineering, the Smith School of Business and the 
College of Education were among the top 25. Grad- 
uate programs in economics, education, engineering, 
library science, mathematics, physics and sociology 
ranked in the top 25. According to Computeni'orld 
magazine, the Smith School offers the nation's third 
best technology-oriented M.B.A. program. 

The University Honors Program was spotlighted as 
an "Ivy League experience" at a bargain price in the 
U.S. News & World Report 12th annual guide to 
"America's Best Colleges." 

The university collaborates with more than 2S() busi- 
nesses through its Maiyland Industrial Partnerships 
program. The university's incubator has spawned 20 
new companies; three have been recognized as 
among the fastest growing in the state. 

As Washiii'^toiiiiiii magazine stated m a December 
1 997 feature article on the rise of the Universits* of 
Maryland, "The Terps are moving up, and we're not 
just talking basketball."

IE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



Universir.' of Manland. Despite 
the name, the universit)' was not 
considered a state institution as it 
was still owned and operated by 
facult\\ 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 Surger\- 
p.D.S.) degree m 1841. 

In 1859. the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College, which would 
evolve into the Uni\'ersit\' ot 
Mar\land, College Park, was 
opened under a charter secured by 
a group of Maryland planters m 
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, namral sci- 
ences, EngUsh and mathematics. 
After a disastrous fire on campus in 
1912, the state acquired the college 
and rebuilt it. 

In 1 920, the state legislature 
combined the College Park insti- 
tution with the professional 
schools in Baltimore to form an 
expanded University of Maryland. 
The entit\' 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 pop- 
ulation, e.xcellence in programs 
and curricula, and the burgeoning 
of the University' of Maryland, 
College Park, into a nationally rec- 



ognized research institution. 

July 1, 1988, marked the dawn 
of a new era in higher education 
in the state of Mar\land, as the five 
components of the university' were 
merged with sLx other state uni- 
versities and colleges to form the 
University of Marvland System, 
and College Park secured its flag- 
ship status with a mandate to 
become one ot the pre-eminent 
research universities in the nation. 

The Alumni Association 

With alumni clubs from Miami to 
Taipei, Taiwan, the Mar\'land 
Alumni Association strives to keep 
and strengthen ties between the 




university and its graduates. Mem- 
ber events such as pre-game par- 
ties, bull roasts, picnics, golf 
tournaments, dinner cruises and 
subscriptions to College Park maga- 
zine and the biannual Mar)'ljiid 
Alumni supplement help keep 
alunuii connected to the universit\' 



and to each other. All graduating 
seniors and successfiil master's and 
Ph.D. candidates receive a one- 
year free membership in the 
Maryland Alumm Association. 

The Alumni 

Graduates of the university go on 
to distinguished careers in a vari- 
ety of fields. Chosen from thou- 
sands of qualified alumni, an 
inaugural group was inducted into 
the Universiry of Ma^^'land 
Alurnni Association Hall of Fame 
in April 1995. They included 21 
outstanding indi\'iduals who have 
brought, and continue to bring, 
great honor to their alma mater. 
Their achievements are as varied as 
their Uves, but they all have one 
thing in common: a UniversitN' of 
MarN'land, College Park, diploma.

Customs of Commencement 

Early commencement ceremonies 
at the Universit)- of Maryland 
were marked with great fanfare 
and celebration. The faculty gave 
huge banquets for the graduates 
the night before the event. The 
toUowing morning, crowds gath- 
ered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occa- 
sion, attracting not only friends 
and relatives, but the fashionable 
eUte 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 for- 
ward to coUect 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 ordi- 
nary dress of the scholar, whether 
student or teacher, was similar to 
that ot a cleric. Caps and gowns 
were probably worn to keep stu- 
dents warm in unhealed buildings. 
Many medieval scholars were ton- 
sured, Hke monks, and hoods 
served to cover their shaved heads 
until the skuU cap 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 rime 
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 dis- 
cipline. 

A list of department colors follows: 
Agriculture: Maize 
Arts, Letters, Humanities: White 



Business Administration, 
Commercial Science: Drab 

Dentistry: Lilac 

Economics: Copper 

Education: Light Blue 

Engineering: Orange 

Fine Arts, Architecture: Brown 

Forestry: Russet 

Home Economics: Maroon 

JournaHsm: Crimson 

Law: Purple 

Library' Science: Lemon 

Medicine: Green 

Music: Pink 

Nursing: Apricot 

Oratory, Speech: Silver Gray 

Pharmacy: Ohve 

Philanthropy: Rose 

Philosophy: Dark Blue 

Public Administration, Foreign 
Service: Peacock Blue 

PubUc Health: Salmon 

Physical Education: Sage Green 

Science: Golden Yellow 

Social Work: Citron 

Theolog)' and Divimt\': Scarlet 

Veterinary Sciences: Gray 

The tassel may also be colored 
to represent an academic discipline 
or it may be black. Officially, the 
tassel is permitted "to lie where it 
will" on the mortarboard. How- 
ever, numerous institutions have 
adopted the practice of having 
degree candidates wear the tassel 
on the right front side at the start 
ot 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 impor- 
tant role in the graduation cere- 
mony. Student marshals assist in 
organizing the thousands of grad- 
uates, leading them smoothly 
through the commencement pro- 
cession. They also supply extra 
caps and hoods, and bobby pins to 
keep headwear secure. December 
1999 marshals are hsted on page 68 
ot this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

The semor gift is a umversity tra- 
dition dating back 89 years. The 
first senior gift, the iron gate 
entrance at the Rossborough Inn, 
was given by the Class of 1910 
(although the gate itself was not 
erected until 1941). The class of 
1999 has elected to estabhsh the 
Henson Garden. The garden will 
be located on the corner of 
Library Lane and Campus Drive, 
site ot the tuture Jim Henson and 
Kermit the Frog sculpture (Senior 
Gift, Class of 1998). 

The purpose of the senior gift 
is twotold. Each year the senior 
class leaves behind a memorable 
legacy for new students and visi- 
tors, and provides the university 
with a gift that enhances the cam- 
pus atmosphere. 

Past senior gifts have included: 
theTestudo statue (Class of 1933), 
the hghts around the "M" in the 
traffic circle on Campus Drive 
(Class of 1986), restoration of the

of 1995). 

Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the suc- 
cessful completion of a course of 
study. There are more than 1,600 
different academic degrees cur- 
rendy conferred by colleges and 
universities nationwide. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland offers degrees 
in 110 undergraduate majors, 100 
master's programs, and 70 doctoral 
programs. 

The Doctor's Degree 

The doctor's degree represents the 
most advanced earned degree con- 
ferred by American institutions. 
There are two distinct types: the 
practitioner's degree and the 
research degree. The first t^'pe rep- 
resents advanced training for the 
practice of various professions, 
principally Doctor of Medicine, 
Juris Doctor, Doctor of Pharmacy, 
and Doctor of Veterinary Medi- 
cine. These degrees do not involve 
the completion of original 
research by the saident.The Uni- 
versity of Maryland, at the profes- 
sional 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 of Veterinary 
Medicine (D.VM.) to approximately 



90 students each year in a program 
that was instituted m 1980. Gradu- 
ates receive a diploma containing 
the seals of both the University of 
Maryland and its partner institu- 
tion, the Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute and State University. 

The second type is the research 
doctorate representing prolonged 
periods of advanced study. A dis- 
sertation that usually accompanies 
the study is intended to contribute 
substantially to the body of knowl- 
edge on the subject. The most 
important of these, the Doctor of 
Philosophy, no longer has an 
impHcation 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 successfiiUy completed 
work beyond the baccalaureate. 
A thesis and an oral examination 
are usually required. In 1920, the 
University of Maryland 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 college-level study and is 
the oldest acadeinic degree 



awarded by American institutions 
of higher learning. It was first con- 
ferred in America in 1642 on the 
first nine graduates of Harvard 
College. Maryland Agriculture 
College, which later became the 
University' of Maryland, College 
Park, awarded its first Bachelor of 
Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Sci- 
ence (B.S.) in 1862.

NO matter what his role in Hfe — as a star Terp, professional quarterback, broad- 
caster or humanitarian — Norman "Boomer" Esiason (UGST '84) leaves a 
legacy. During his undergraduate years at Maryland, Esiason reigned over a 
golden era of Terrapin football that still resonates throughout Byrd Stadium today. In 1983, he 
led the Terps to the Atlantic Coast Conference title and secured them a place in Florida's Cit- 
rus Bowl. As an All-American player, Esiason set 17 school records for passing and total offense. 

He went on to spend 14 years (1984—97) in the competitive arena of professional football, 
playing quarterback tor the Cincinnati Bengals, the New York Jets and the St. Louis Cardinals. 
In 1988, he took the Bengals to Super Bowl XXIII and was named the NFL's Most Valuable 
Player by the Pro Football Writers of America and the Associated Press; he was also voted NFL 
Player of the Year by Sporting News and Football Digest. Esiason is among the NFL's top 1(J play- 
ers in all-time passing yards, career completions and career attempts, and ranks 1 4th overall for 
all-time touchdown passes. 

He has since brought his years of field experience to the broadcasting booth as a commen- 
tator for several major networks, beginning in 1991 as an expert analyst for USA Network's 
coverage of the World League games. He joined ABC as a studio analyst for ABC Sports' cov- 
erage of the 1996 and 1997 NFL Playoffs. Now, he has recently completed his second season as 
an expert commentator on ABC's highly rated NFL Monday Night Football, where he is just 
as apt to wax nostalgic about his days at Maryland as he is to comment on the game at large. 

Perhaps Esiason's most poignant legacy wiU be the one he leaves for millions of cystic fibro- 
sis patients — including his own son, Gunnar — as founder and president of the Boomer Esiason 
Foundation. Established in 1993, the foundation employs annual fundraising events, marketing 
cainpaigns, individual pledges, corporate contributions and philanthropic grants to heighten 
public awareness and education about cystic fibrosis, enhance the quality- of lite for patients, 
and financially support research aimed toward finding a cure for the disease. 

Esiason fives in Long Island, N.Y., with his wife, Cheryl, son Gunnar and daughter Sydney.

G. Scott Shaw '99 



I came to college to be a better communicator," says G. Scott Shaw, "and 
everything I've since pursued has fallen under those premises." hi the realm of 
university communications, the journalism major became tamiliar to the 
Maryland community as first a news reporter, then a design instructor, and finally a bi-weekly 
columnist for the Duvmvidhack. He also served as president ot the university's chapter of the 
Public Relations Student Society of America. Beyond the campus, Shaw found opportunities 
to expand his communication and design skills as an intern tor the High Technology Council 
of Maryland. "This internship was a perfect fit," he says, "because it offered me insights into the 
composition of the state's technology industry." 

It was also a communications project that first introciuced Shaw to the world of hospice 
care: He designed a brochure tor teenagers coping with terminally ill family members that was 
later used by the Hospice of Prince George's County. Shaw would go on to volunteer at Hos- 
pice events, including the XVIII Annual Hospice Cup Charity Regatta, the largest charity 
regatta in the United States, and the Beacon of Hope fundraiser for Hospice of the Chesa- 
peake in MiUersviUe, Md. His belief in hospice care has a rock-solid foundation: "The fact that 
such a service exists in our current medical system is a breath of fresh air." 

Such a phrase may be used by several professors to describe Shaw himself "He is an ener- 
getic, personable and winsome young man," says Reese Cleghorn, dean of the College of Jour- 
nalism. And Ralph Bauer, assistant professor of English, proclaims, "He is a committed, serious 
\vriter with extraordinary gifts and, no doubt, a bright future." 

Post-graduation, Shaw plans to fulfill his dream of driving cross-country ("Everyone does 
Europe after graduation. No one does America.") to explore firsthand the American history 
and literature that have been his academic passions. By next fall, he will have settled near 
Boston, Mass., for a career in high-tech public relations that combines writing, technology and 
politics. He aspires to be an effective writer and one day publish his own magazine. 

"I'm looking forward," says Shaw, "to being successful on my own terms."
