accomplishment. I am confident that m the years to come, your appreciation 
of your education at Maryland will continue to blossom. You have learned the current theories

accomplishments as scholar, artist, athlete and leader — as individuals. You have enriched our 
lives and have helped the university reach new levels of distinction and esteem. You have now 
become a member of the university's alumni family, and ue welcome you to this special group. 
I urge you to stay connected to us and take full advantage of the benefits of being an alum 
of the University of Maryland. I hope that you will return to campus often, continue to 
support us and help new generations of students shape their futures as you have yours. Please 
consider joining us next April 30 for Maryland Day 2005. This vers' special event has become 
a signature of the campus. 

You have my very best wishes for all your endeavors. We are proud of each and every one

Yours sincerely, 
CD. Mote, Jr. 
President

with the opening of the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center; but nothing can compare to that 
stroU across the stage to receive a diploma. 

We are proud of your accomplishments and the determination that has brought you to 
this remarkable day. We look forward to your future as an active member ot the Maryland 
alumni family. 

Once again, congratulations ... and a traditional "GOTERPS!"

Today you complete the journey that was under- 
taken several years ago, arriving proudly at the 
threshold of a new life. When you look back, 
can vou 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 umque path but have reached a 
common destination. As seniors, it is easier to list the ways in 
%\hich we are different from each other than the ways in which 
we are bound together. 

We are accustomed to describing students in groups — com- 
muters; residents; members of ethnic, reUgious, or professional 
orgamzations; students in particular departments and colleges. 
These difference should be admired and respected as should 
the many qualities we share. 

From this point, you can reflect on past journeys. Remem- 
ber what \ou learned along the way about who you are and 
what you are capable of achieving. 

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

WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Continuing Commitment 
to Excellence 

From its pre-Civil War roots as 
the state's 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. Maryland's 
beautifiil 1,200-acre campus is in 
the heart of the 1-270 research 
corridor that is ftiehng a burgeon- 
ing information technolog%' and 
biotechnology indust^\^ 

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 quahty, 
the University of Maryland has 
gained national recognition as one 
of the fastest rising comprehensive 



research institutions m the country. 
Marv'land is one of the nation's Top 
20 pubhc national universities, and 
the qualirs' of our faculty — with 
one Nobel Prize winner, six 
Puhtzer Prize winners and scores 
of Fulbright scholars — is among 
the finest of any research university 
in the United States. 

There are 13 schools and 
colleges wathin the organizational 
strucmre of the University' of 
Mars'land. Seven of these units — 
the Smith School of Business, the 
College of Education, the Clark 
School of Engineering, the Phihp 
Merrill College of Journalism, the 
College of Computer, Mathemati- 
cal and Physical Sciences, the 
College of Information Studies and 
the School of Public PoUcy — have 
been recognized by their peers and 
in various rankings as among the 
25 best in the nation. The breadth 



of this excellence is a source of 
pride for students, faculty and 
staff, and is endorsement for the 
umversit\''s flagship status among 
the state's institutions of higher 
education. 

The universiu' also continues 
to move forward in the quahty 
of our students and the support 
of our faithful alumni. Freshman 
admission is highly competitive. 
Last year 22.000 appHcations were 
received for only 4.100 spots in the 
Fall 2004 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. 
Mar\'land Alumni Association 
membership is increasmg at 
a record rate, with a 20 percent 
uicrease in the last tour years 
and nearly 4,000 people joining 
the Alumni Association since 
July 2003. 

The universit)''s commimient 
to quahty education in a research 
emironnient 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, exposing smdents 
to the most pressing issues and 
challenges in their discipUne and 
training them to respond with 
rigor as well as creativity to 
contemporar\' problems. 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



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 policy- 
making and international political 
and economic activity enables it to 
play an active role in research and 
analysis of pubhc 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, 
hfe sciences and agriculture. Schol- 
arship in the arts, humanities and 
social sciences is marked by the 
spirit of intellectual diversit\' and 
interdisciplinary collaboration. 

Maryland is one of the research 
universities in the prestigious 61- 
member Association of American 
Universities and the only public 
institution in the Mars'land-D.C. 
area with membership in the 
nation's most distinguished 
honor societv-. Phi Beta Kappa. 

Total sponsored research and 
outreach revenue for fiscal year 
2(104 was a record high of more 
than S352 million. These fiinds for 
research, training and outreach and 
other pubhc service activities come 
from a variety of sources including 
the federal government, state 
government, corporations and 
foundations. 

The Office ofTechnology 
C^ommercialization (OTC) at 
the University of Mar^'land was 
established in 1986 to facilitate 



the tramfer of information, life 
and physical science inventions 
developed at the university to 
business and industry. In its 1 8- 
year history, OTC has recorded 
more than 1,300 technologies, 
secured more than 270 patents 
and licensed more than 750 tech- 
nologies, generating more than 
$21.7 million in technology 
transfer income. Through its 
Maryland Technology Enterprise 
Institute, the university collaborates 
with more than 280 businesses and 
has spawned 45 new companies — 
including r\vo of Maryland's 20 
public biotech companies. 

History 

The University- of Maryland was 
founded in 1807 in Baltimore 
as a faculty-owned College of 
Medicine. The medical school 
was considered one of the top 
schools in the country, attracting 
notable professors and lecturers 
fi-oni throughout the world. In its 
beginning, tuition cost S 1 40, grades 
were sent home weekly to parents, 
and students could obtain room 
and board for $300 annually. 

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



The University Is On the Move 

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

New Homes for Innovation: We're building the state's 
largest-evcr research park, M Square, which will bring nearly 
6,500 new jobs to the area. The state of Maryland also recently 
approved $6o.6 million m planning and construction funds, 
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 quahry of Maiyland faculty 
ranks among the finest of any research university in the United 
States and includes one Nobel Prize winner, sL\ PuUtzer Prize 
winners and scores of Fulbright scholars. 

Impact of Another Kind: NASA turned to the university to 
lead a $279 million mission that promises astronomers a first 
look inside a comet, reveahng the pristine materials that torm 
the basis of our solar system. The projectile is slated to launch m 
Januar\' 2005. 

Lighting a Path: The university is embarking on a new fund- 
raising campaign that includes among its goals raising at least 
$200 nuUion for student scholarships, which are needed to 
ensure that lower- and middle-income students graduate with 
reduced debt load. Co-chairing this important effort is alumnus 
and men's head basketball coach Gary Williams. 

An Economic Force: The Universirs- ofM.ir\iand generates 
$5.93 of econonuc activity for every dollar appropriated by the 
General Assembly, providing a statewide impact of nearly $1.8 
billion annually. 

Lending Knowledge: With 3 million volumes and eight 
Ubraries i>n campus, the universirs's library 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 year. 



VUINTEB COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



In 1859, the Mary-land Agricul- 
tural 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 addi- 
tion 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, EngUsh 
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 cam- 
puses in Baltimore County, the 
Eastern Shore and University 
College, a continuing education 
institution. 

The following decades saw 
the increasmg growth of student 
population, excellence in programs 
and curricula, and the burgeoning 
of the University of Maryland, 
College Park, into a nationally 
recognized research instiaition. 

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 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 trom 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 subscriptions to Terp. 
the University' of Maryland maga- 
zine, help keep alumni connected 
to the university and to each other. 
All graduating seniors and success- 
fill master's and Ph.D. candidates 
receive a one-year fi^ee member- 
ship in the Maryland Alumni 
Association.

Customs of Commencement 

Harly coiixnienccnicnt 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 gath- 




ered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occasion, 
attracting not only friends and rela- 
tives, 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 audi- 
ence 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 orchnary 
dress of the scholar, whether student 
or teacher, was similar to that of 
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 
skull 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 
discipline. 
A list of department colors follows: 

Agriculture: Maize 

Arts, Letters, Humamries: White 

Business Administration, 
Commercial Science: Drab 

Dentistry: Lilac 

Economics: Copper 

Education: Light Blue 

Engineering: Orange 

Fine Arts, Architecture: Brown 

Forestry: Russet 

Home Economics: Maroon 

JournaUsm: Crimson 

Law: Purple 

Library Science: Lemon 

Medicine: Green 

Music: Pink 

Nursing: Apricot 

Oratory, Speech: Silver Gray 

Pharmacy: Ohve 

Physical Education: Sage Green 

Philanthropy: Rose 

Philosophy: Dark Blue 

PubUc Administration, Foreign 
Service: Peacock Blue 

Public Health: Salmon 

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. OiEcially, the 



tassel is permitted "to lie where 
it will" on the mortarboard. 
However, 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 

The Senior Marshal program 
was implemented in 1991 for 
the purpose of recognizing and 
honoring exceptional graduating 
students. This year's Marshals were 
nominated by faculty and staff 
members and were selected for 
their scholastic achievements, 
leadership, and contributions to 
the campus community. The 
December 2004 Marshals are 
hsted on page 64 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

Since 1910, members of the 
graduating class have supported 
a senior gift designed to 
commemorate their college 
experience. Traditionally the 
gift serves as a contribution to 
the campus community' that 
forever Unks alumni with the 
university. Past gifts include 
the Testudo statue, gardens, 
artwork, contributions to the

Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the 
successfiil completion of a course 
of study. There are more than 
1,600 different academic degrees 
currendy conferred by colleges 
and universities nation%vide. The 
University of Maryland offers 
degrees in 95 undergraduate 
majors, 93 master's programs. 
71 doctoral programs and one 
first professional degree. 

The Doctor's Degree 

The doctor's degree represents 
the most advanced earned degree 
conferred by American mstitutions. 
There are two distinct types: the 
practitioner's degree and the 
research degree. The first rv'pe 
represents advanced training for 
the practice of various professions, 
principally Doctor of Medicine, 
Juris Doctor, Doctor of Pharmacy, 
and Doctor of Veterinary' 
Medicine. These degrees do not 
involve the completion of original 
research by the student. The 
University of Maryland, at the 
professional school in Baltimore, 



awarded the first rwo dental 
degrees ever on March 9, 1841. 
and invented the name of the 
degree, Doctor of Dental Surgery 
P.D.S.). 

The University of Mar\'land 
conveys the Doctor of Veterinary 
Medicine (D.V.M.) to 
approximately 90 students 
each year in a program that was 
instituted in 1980. Graduates 
receive a diploma containing 
the seals of both the University 
of Maryland and its parmer 
institution, the Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute and State Umversity. 

The second type is the research 
doctorate representing prolonged 
periods of advanced study. 
A dissertation that usually 
accompanies 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 impUcation 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 Universitv'. 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 successfioUy completed 
work beyond the baccalaureate. 

A thesis and an oral 
examination are usually required. 
In 1920, the University of 
Mars'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 complenon 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 
conferred in America in 1 642 on 
the first nine graduates of Harvard 
College. Maryland Agriculture 
College, which later became the 
Universit)' of Maryland, College 
Park, awarded its first Bachelor of 
Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of 
Science (B.S.) in 1862.

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 



Tliough he's been in congress less than two years, Rep. Chris Van Hollen has 
already emerged as a fighter for pubHc schools and higher education. 
He was elected in 2( )( )2 to represent Maryland's 8th District — including a 
large swath of Montgomery County- and a sliver of Prince George's County- — 
and immediately made educational initiatives one of his top priorities. 

A member of the Committee for Education and the Workforce and the Committee 
on Government Reform, Van Hollen was named 2003 Outstanding New Member by the 
non-partisan Committee for Education Funding. 

His first bill as a congressman called for full funding of the federal No Child Left Behind 
Act, and this year he's worked to close a loophole allowing government subsidies for private 
student loan lenders. Doing so, he says, would save the Department of Education millions of 
dollars and free up more cash for the loans themselves. 

Van Hollen also co-sponsored legislation that would have expanded federal grant programs 
and required states to provide level funding to public universities, initiatives aimed at increasing 
college opportunities and keeping costs low. 

He says the biggest challenges facing today's graduates are "first to repay their students loans 
and then to save the world." 

In his 12 years as a member of the Maryland General Assembly, Van Hollen also pushed 
for the establishment of the Maryland Prepaid College Trust and for the expansion ot state 
scholarship programs. He has visited campus for Earth Day in 2002, and was recognized here 
in 2002 for supporting relations between the United States, and Israel. He has also called on 
Mar)'land students to help him promote higher education causes. 

"During m\- 1 2 >ears in the Maryland State Legislature, I had the opportunity- to work with 
many students, faculty, and administrators and other members of the University of Maryland, Col- 
lege Park, family," said Van HoUen, 45. "The graduates of this extraordinary institution have reached 
a major milestone, and I am gratefiil for the opportunity to share this joyous time with them." 

The congressman graduated fi-om the Georgetown University Law Center and holds a mas- 
ter's degree in public policy fix^m Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. 

A father of three, he lives with his wife and children in Kensington.

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Rencc Silwolii 



After interning for a judge in high school, student speaker Renee Sihvola 
thought she might be interested in studying law in college. So when it came 
time for the Frederick native to choose a school, she picked the University 
of Maryland because it was close to the action. 

"It was right by D.C., and I knew whatever I wanted to be involved in was here, whether 
it was politics or law enforcement or something else," says Sihvola. 21. "'That's one of the things 
I love about Maryland — the abundance of activities and opportunities to get involved." 

Graduating with a double major in government and poUtics and criminal justice. Sihvola 
let few opportunities pass her by once she moved onto campus. 

During her freshman year, she helped found the Open Door Fellowship, a non-sectarian 
Christian group that brings students together for worship and Bible study. With Sihvola's help, 
the group organized occasional concerts at the Nyumburu Cultural Center. 

As a member of the Lutheran Student Association, Sihvola also volunteered to mentor 
students from nearby Langley Park Elementary School. She spearheaded clothing drives for the 
local Salvadorian community' and organized food coOections as a resident assistant in Charles HaU. 

She also bulked up her schedule to earn her degree in three and a half years. Classmates in 
the College Park Scholars in Public Leadership program convinced her to major in government 
and pohtics, but she decided to add another major because she was so interested in hands-on 
law enforcement techniques. Her favorite classes, she says, are those that take her into the lab 
to examine tool marks from a crime scene or study polygraph results. 

Despite long hours studying for her 3.89 grade point average. Sihvola always found time for 
intramural sports. She took home first place as part of coed basketball and flag football teams. 

Now she's competing for a bigger prize — a coveted spot at one of the nation's most 
prestigious law schools. She's awaiting word from seven programs. 

Internships with a state's attorney, the campus Legal Aid office and the Department of 
Justice" Ofiice of International Affairs helped her set her sights on becoming a lawyer. 

"I saw how difficult it was," she says. "And I really Uke challenges."

WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



SENIOR MARSHALS 



The Senior Marshal Program began 1991 as 
an opportunity to acknowledge outstanding 
seniors at their commencement. The students 
selected to be marshals were nominated by 
faculty, administration and stall for their outstanding accom- 
plishments and contributions to the University' of Maryland. 
We are proud to recognize these truly remarkable students.
