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

We have each followed a unique path but 
have reached a common destination. As 
seniors, it is easier to list the ways in which 
we are different 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, religious or professional organizations; students in particular departments and coUeges. 
These differences should be admired and respected as should the many qualities we share. 

From this point, you can reflect on past journeys. Remember what 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 vour life's jour- 
ney to which you can always return. 

Congratulations! 

Senior Council 2000-2001

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Bold New Era 

From its pre-Civil War roots as the 
state's 6rst agricultural college and 
one of America's original land 
grant institutions, the University of 
Maryland, College Park, has 
emerged as a public research um- 
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 quahty education m a research 
environment is key to its academic 
reputation and the success of its 
graduates. The research enterprise 
infiises the curriculum at both the 
undergraduate and graduate levels. 



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

There are 13 schools and col- 
leges within the organizational 
structure of the University of 
Maryland. Seven of these units — 
the Smith School of Business, the 
College of Education, the Clark 
School of Engineering, the Col- 
lege of Journahsm, the College of 
Computer, Mathematical and 
Physical Sciences, the College of 
Information Studies and the 
School of Pubhc Affairs — 
have been recognized by their 
peers and in various rankings as 
among the 25 best in the nation. 
Various academic specialties in the 
College of Arts and Humanities 



and the College ot Behavioral 
and Social Sciences are also ranked 
among the 25 best and the School 
of Music 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 
ot the areas that affect quahty. The 
qualifications of entering students 
have risen each year for the past 
10 years, and SATs now range 
from 1170 to 1330 for the mid-50 
percent tier of students. In fall 
2000, 507 first year students scored 
above 1400 on their SATs. Spon- 
sored research and outreach has 
doubled in the same 10-year 
period, and has reached $284 mil- 
lion for FYOO. Private giving has 
increased even more dramatically, 
from S 1 8 million per year at the 
start of the decade to $71 miUion 
in FYOO. Alumni Association 
membership has been growing at 
an average rate of 1 percent a 
year since 1992. Coupled with 
renewed commitment from the 
state of Maryland for funding flag- 
ship initiatives, these factors ensure 
that the university will continue 
on a forward trajectory for many 
years to come. 

One of the largest research 
universities in the United States, 
current enrollment stands at 
24,638 undergraduate and 8,55 1

graduate students. There arc 1 10 
undergraduate programs, 100 mas- 
ter's programs and 70 doctoral 
programs, and more than 1 00 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 ot national and international 
concern. The university's location 
near the center of federal policy- 
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 
mterdiscipHnary collaboration. 

Maryland is one of the 
research universities in the presti- 
gious 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-! university by the 
Carnegie Foundation by virtue ot 
the range of its baccalaureate pro- 
grams, the amount of 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 2(11 111. sponsored icscaivli and outre.ich awards to 
the Universitv of Maryland totaled more than $2S4 million. 

The universirv' collaborates with more than 280 businesses 
through its Maryland Industrial Partnerships piugrani.The 
universitNs incubator has spawned 2<l new Lomp.iiiics; three 
have been recognized as among the fastest growing iii the 
state. 

Rankings continue to reflect Maryland's rising reputation. 
In the latest U.S. News & World Report look at undergradu- 
ate schools, the Smith School of Business and Clark School 
of Engineering were among the top 25, and the university 
was selected among the top 25 public universities. Graduate 
programs m education and engineering were top 25 pro- 
grams, .md the Smith School had its management and 
inforination systems program ranked m the top 10. Further, 
the Smith School was rated No. 2 m the world by the 
l-)nathi,il I'liih'.^ (or its information technology program. 
iiA/in;,);;i)i 's "Best Colleges for Asian Americans" ranked the 
university 10th in the nation. 

Maryland was among 27 doctoral granting institutions to 
be honored by the Quality Education for Minorities Net- 
work. The honor is based on the number ot university doc- 
toral degrees awarded to people of color in the fields ot 
mathematics, the physical sciences and engineering. 

The uni\ersit^ was cited as ah "exemplary program" by Tlie 
Teinplrioii ( iiiidc: (,'()//ix'r> //m/ i:n,vin,ii;e Character Develop- 
ment, a guidebook for students, parents and educators. 

Umversin' activities like athletic cxcnts and Commence- 
ment ceremonies will be held in the planned C'omcast 
Center arena, beginning in the 2l "12-2003 school year. 
Comcast Corp. made a $20 million naming rights gitt that 
enables the state and universin,' to proceed with construc- 
tion. It is the largest single donation ever to the flagship 
campus. 



WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



University 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 
P.D.S.) degree in 1841. 

In 1859, the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College, which would 
evolve into the University of 
Maryland, College Park, was 
opened under 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 sci- 
ences, 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 insti- 
tution 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 pop- 
ulation, excellence in programs 
and curricula, and the burgeoning 
of the University of Maryland, 
College Park, into a nationally rec- 
ognized research institution. 



July 1 , 1 988, marked the dawn 
of a new era in higher education 
m the state of Maryland, as the five 
components of the university were 
merged with six other state uni- 
versities and colleges to form the 
University of Maryland System, 
and College Park secured its flag- 
ship status with a mandate to 
become one of the pre-eminent 
research universities in the nation. 

The Alumni Association 

With alumni clubs fi-om Miami to 
Taipei, Taiwan, the Maryland 
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 Maryland 
Alumni supplement help keep 
alumni connected to the university 
and to each other. All graduating 
seniors and successfiil master's and 



Ph.D. candidates receive a one- 
year free membership in the 
Maryland Alumni Association.

Customs of Commencement 

Early commencement ceremonies 
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 gath- 
ered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occa- 
sion, attracting not only friends 
and relatives, 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 for- 
ward to collect their Latin- 
niscribed 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 of a cleric. Caps and gowns 
were probably worn to keep stu- 
dents warm in unheated buildings. 
Many medieval scholars were ton- 
sured, like 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 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 dis- 
ciphne. 

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

Conmiercial 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: Olive 
Philanthropy: Rose 
Philosophy: Dark Blue 
Pubhc Administration, Foreign 

Service: Peacock Blue 
Pubhc Health: Salmon 
Physical Education: Sage Green 
Science: Golden Yellow 
Social Work: Citron 



Theology and Divinity: 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 
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 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 
2000 marshals are hsted on page 68 
of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

The senior gift is a university tra- 
dition dating back 90 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). To commemo- 
rate their time at the University 
of Maryland, the Class of 2000 has 



ITER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



voted to present the university- 
with a freestanding clock structure, 
which will be placed in front of 
the newly renovated Stamp 
Student Union. 

The purpose of the senior gift 
is twofold. 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: 
the Testudo statue (Class of 1933). 
the hghts around the "M" in the 
traffic circle on Campus Drive 
(Class of 1986), restoration of the 
Chapel chimes and clock face 
(Class of 1992) and the Bronzed 
Seal on North Gate House (Class 
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- 
rently conferred by colleges and 
universities nationwide. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland offers degrees 
in 102 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 type rep- 
resents advanced training for the 



practice ot 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 student. 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.V.M.) to approximately 
90 students each year in a program 
that was instituted in 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 successfiilly 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 academic degree 
awarded by American institutions 
of higher learning. It was first con- 
ferred in America in 1 642 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.

One of the leading visionaries in the media industry, John S. Hendricks has been 
honored with a Primedme Enuny Award and the Academy of Television Arts 
&• Sciences highest honor, the Governors Award, tor conceiving the TLC (The 
Learning Channel) series, '"Great Books." He was also the first corporate leader to receive the 
National Educadon Association's Friend of Education award for "innovadons in education and 
technology and greatly expanding educational opportunities for America's schoolchildren." 
Founder, chair and CEO of Discovery Communications, Inc., Hendricks incorporated DCI in 
1982 as the first cable network m the United States designed to provide high quality' documen- 
tary programming that enables people to explore their world and satisfy their natural curiosiry. 

Over the last 15 years, Hendricks has been the driving force behind DCl's dramatic growth 
including the expansion of DCI from its core property; the Discovery Channel, to current 
global operations in 150 countries with 180 million total subscribers. Under his leadership, 
DCI's stable of networks now encompasses 14 entertainment brands including TLC, Animal 
Planet, Travel Channel, Discovery Health Channel, Discovery Kids and a family of digital 
channels. DCI's other properties consist ofDiscovery.com and 165 Discovery Channel retail

Never one to thmk small, last year Hendricks formed the Women's United Soccer Associa- 
don (WUSA), designed to be the premier women's soccer league in the world. Play begins 
next April in eight cities across the United States with all 20 members ot the 1999 U.S. 
Women's World Cup champion team participating. 

Hendricks serves on the board of directors for several technology companies, including 
TiVO, Interactive Pictures Corporation (iPIX) and Excalibur Technologies. Most recently, he 
was appointed vice chair of the Washington-Baltimore 2012 Coalidon, formed to make the 
case for hosting the Olympic Games in the region. 

Hendricks holds a B.A. in history (iiuii;ihj aim laudc, 1973) and an honorary doctorate (1991)

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER

When Heather C. King addresses her peers on December 21, she will have 
reached a goal that began well before her graduation from high school at 
age 16. "I began saving for college when I was 13 years old," she says. The 
eldest of five children, she is the first in her tamily to earn a college degree. After a year at 
Prince George "s Community College, King entered the Universit\- ot Maryland as a College 
Park Scholar and an Honors student. 

Despite an active life on and off campus. King achieved a perfect 4.0 grade point average, 
earning academic honors every semester. Typically matter-of-fact, she attributes her academic 
success to her English language and literature major. "I found those writing and thinking skills 
useful in everv class," she says. Those who work with her tell a fiiUer stor\'. 

"She is a remarkably talented and versatile person, one of the three brightest young scholars 
I have encountered." says Karen L. Nelson, associate director of the Center for Renaissance & 
Baroque Studies. "And her work ethic is extraordinary." In addition to her job at the center as 
program coordinator and webmaster. King tutors high school students, teaches Sunday School 
and volunteers in a pregnancy crisis intervention center. Says Nelson, "Her intellectual curios- 
irs' seemingly knows no bounds, and yet she remains focused upon what is required." 

For King graduation isn't simply a capstone to an illustrious undergraduate career. After a 
well-deserved year off, she plans to attend graduate school in chnical counseling. "I believe that 
every stage of Hfe is a stepping-stone to something new. We are all works in progress."
