We/ 



come ! 



Welcome to the University of Maryland Campus. 
We're glad that you have chosen Maryland to spend 
your college years. 

As new members of the Associated Women Stu- 
dents you'll find that the AWS program will play a 
vital role in your college experience. We hope you 
will take an active interest in AWS. Your partici- 
pation in the AWS program will help us reach our 
aim to help you grow academically, socially, and 
culturally. 

Best wishes for a successful year!

A W S 



The Associated Women Students is your stu- 
dent government. Every woman on the Maryland 
campus is a member of AWS. As the governing 
body for women students, AWS sets up and en- 
forces standards of conduct and residence rules, 
sponsors cultural and social activities, and coordi- 
nates the women's activities on campus. 

A great deal of the AWS work is carried out 
through committees, and this is where you can 
take an active part in your government. There are 
opportunities for women students to ply their var- 
ious talents on AWS committees such as Cultural, 
Social, Dormitory Big Sister, Publicity and Publica- 
tions, and Constitution committees. 

Any woman student may become an active mem- 
ber of AWS by visiting the AWS office in the Stu- 
dent Union Building on any week-day afternoon 
for further information or application blanks for 
AWS positions, or by contacting Anna Karavangelos, 
AWS president.

The Executive Council 

The Executive Council is the administrative body 
of AWS. It discusses and acts upon all problems 
affecting the welfare of women students. All of the 
official legislation of AWS is transacted in the 
Executive Council. The three subdivisions of the 
council are the Residence Council, the campus Judi- 
cial Board and the Academic Board. 

Membership on the Executive Council consists of 
the . . . 

AWS Officers 

Chairman of the Judicial Board 
Chairman of the Academic Board 
Dormitory Presidents 
Representatives of each class 
Representatives of the Daydodgers Student As- 
sociation, the International Club, and the In- 
dependent Students Association 

The Judicial Board 

The Campus Judicial Board has jurisdiction over 
all violations of women's regulations. The Board 
has the power to review and set aside decisions of 
the residence judicial boards and to act as an ap- 
peals board for students not satisfied with a dormi- 
tory or sorority board decision. However, extreme 

(5)

(6 



violations of University rules and those which need 
immediate consideration are referred to the Dean 
of Women. 

The chairman of the Board is elected at a joint 
meeting of the incoming and outgoing members. 
The Board membership is composed of seven dormi- 
tory judicial board chairmen and two rotating 
sorority judicial chairmen. 

The Academic Board 

The Academic Board's purposes are to encourage 
good scholarship and to improve faculty-student re- 
lations. The Board is composed of the dormitory 
academic chairmen and the Panhellenic scholarship 
chairman. 

The purposes of the board are carried out through 
sponsorship of the Dormitory Scholarship Cup, 
which is given to the dormitory group with the 
highest scholastic average, by aiding freshmen to 
adapt to college studies, by presentation of Stu- 
den-Faculty Coffee Hours, through handling of 
tutoring arrangements in women's residences, and 
by publicizing job placement forums. 

The Residence Council 

The Residence Council discusses and acts upon all 
proposed changes in house rules affecting sorority 
residences. It is the iiason between the AWS Ex- 
ecutive Council and sorority residences. Changes in 
house rules may be suggested by individuals or 
groups of students, house directors, or the Dean 
of Women's staff. 

The Executive Council and the judicial chairmen 
of all sorority and off-campus residences are mem- 
bers of the Residence Council. 

(7) 



Dormitory Government 

Each dormitory has a council consisting of a 
president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and 
chairmen of the judicial, academic, orientation, and 
social committees plus four class representatives. 
The house director is the council advisor. 

These councils are the administrative bodies for 
on-campus residences for women. Each council 
supervises the conduct and scholarship within its 
dormitory and promotes extra-curricular activities 
among its students. 

The officers and class representatives are elected 
by a majority vote of the residents. The freshman 
representative is elected in the fall. The chairman 
and members of the committees are appointed by a 
committee composed of the new officers, the incom- 
ing and retiring presidents and the house director 
from applications entered by interested students. 



Sorority Residence Councils 

Each sorority has a residence council composed 
of the president, house president, and house director. 
The duties and powers of each sorority residence 
council are similar to those of the dormitory coun- 
cils. 



The Advisory Board 



The AWS Advisory Board is composed of mem- 
bers of the Dean of Women's staff.

our 

''Traditional 
Norm" 



"I suppose there is in every art, as 
there is in every society, not exactly a set 
of fixed rules but a traditional norm, a 
way of living and behaving, which the 
Greeks might call Themis — the thing that 
is expected, that is always done, and which 
implies of course a number of things that 
are not Themis, that are simply 'not done,' 
at least by people who behave themselves." 

(Gilbert Murray. "Are Our Pearls Real ?The Atlantic 
Monthly, June 1955.) 

We at the University of Maryland hope 
that our students will acquire this "tra- 
ditional norm" which for us is a kindly, 
gracious way of living. No set of iniles can 
cover a philosophy of life, although these 
rules are designed to point the way 
to considerate, sane, and pleasant 
relationships with other people. 
However, anyone who cares about 
being a fine person, and who be- 
lieves that poise, generosity, gen- 
tleness, integrity, and honesty are 
among the most important things 
in life, will find it easy to under 

(9) 





stand and keep our rules. Mature self- 
discipline is a wonderful aid to happiness, 
paradoxical as that may seem. 

We sincerely trust that your experience 
at Maryland will be a challenge to your 
intellect and an opportunity to grow in 
wisdom and charm. The best of luck to 
you all!

enforce those required by the Univer- 
sity. These are safety and health ref- 
lations for the most part, for example: 
1.) Food may not be taken from the 

Dining Hall. 
2.) Coke bottles must be returned to 

the cases provided for this purpose. 
3.) The only electrical appliances al- 
lowed in rooms are fans, hair dryers, 
electric clocks, and radios. 
4.) After dark when lights are on, 
shades must be kept drawn in bed- 
rooms. 
5.) The dormitory is NOT a tenement 
house! Calling or talking from win- 
dows is taboo. 

G. Safety: 

1. Students should lock their rooms when 
away, as the University is not responsible 
for loss or theft of articles. 

2. Women students should not walk alone on 
campus after dark.

H. Use of Alcoholic Beverages: Possession 
or use of alcoholic beverages, including light 
wines and beer, is prohibited on the campus 

or in any fraternity or sorority house or at 
any function, on or off campus, of any organ- 
ization recognized by the University as a 
student organization. 

According to Maryland state law it is un- 
lawful to sell or furnish any alcoholic bever- 
ages at any time to a minor under twenty- 
one years of age either for his own use or 
for the use of any other person. In Prince 
George's County it is unla\\^ul for any person 
under the age of twenty-one: 

1.) To enter the premises of a holder of a 
Class B Beer, Wine, and Liquor license 
between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. 
unless in the immediate company of one 
of his parents, or legal guardian; 

2.) to enter the premises of the holder of a 
Class B or Class D Beer or Beer and 
Light Wine license, except for the pur- 
pose of obtaining or consuming food, un- 
less accompanied by a parent or guardian; 

3.) to purchase alcoholic beverages or mis- 
represent his age to obtain alcoholic bev- 
erages or to have them on or about his 
person. 

(Note: Sections IX and XII E and H are also 
University regulations.)
