Welcome to the University of Maryland. We're so
happy to have you as a new Maryland coed. We
feel the U. of M. is a wonderful school and there
is no doubt that your future here will hold many
exciting and profitable experiences.
When you became a student at the University, you
automatically became a member of AWS — Associ-
ated Women Students. AWS is your organization,
but only if you are an active member of it. Will
you contribute to the maintenance of the important
position AWS has on our campus? Your participation
in the AWS program will help us reach our aim to
help you grow academically, socially, and culturally.
Best wishes for a successful year!
The Associated Women Students is your student
government. Every women on the Maryland campus
is a member of AWS. As the governing body for
women students, AWS sets up and enforces stand-
ards of conduct and residence rules, sponsors cul-
tural and social activities, and coordinates 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 op-
portunities for women students to ply their various
talents on AWS committees such as Cultural, Social,
Dormitory Big Sister, Publicity and Publications,
and Constitution committees.
Any women student may become an active mem-
ber of AWS by visiting the AWS office. Room 113.
in the Student Union Building on any week-day
afternoon for further information or application
blanks for AWS positions, or by contacting Joan
Adams, AWS president, at Somerset Hall.
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 Ex-
ecutive Council. The three subdivisions of the coun-
cil are the Residence Council, the campus Judicial
Board and the Academic Board.
Membership on the Executive Council consists
of the . . .
Chairman of the Judicial Board
Chairman of the Academic Board
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
the power to review and set aside decisions of the
residence judicial boards and to act as an appeals
board for students not satisfied with a dormitory
or sorority board decision. However, extreme viola-
tions of University rules and those which need im-
mediate consideration are referred to the Dean of
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 sor-
ority 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

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-
dent-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 liason between the AWS Ex-
ecutive Council and sorority residences. Changes in
house rules may suggested by individuals or groups
of students, house directors, or the Dean of Women's
The Executive Council and the House Presidents
of all sorority residences are members of the Resi-
Sorority House Presidents:

Each dorm has a council, consisting of a pres-
ident, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and com-
mittee chairmen 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 chairmen
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.
The dorm council consists of all the women's
dormitory presidents who meet monthly to discuss
problems of dormitory government. Ideas are ex-
changed concerning the programs carried out in the
dorm by the dormitory executive council. Any dorm
resident may offer suggestions to the dorm council,
which may in turn make suggestions to the AWS
Executive Council. The AWS dorm council works
with the Men's League dorm council in promoting
a social program between the dorms.
Sorority Residence Councils
Each sorority has a residence council composed
of the president, house president, and house director.
The Advisory Board
The AWS Advisory Board is composed of mem-
bers of the Dean of Women's staff.
"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 liv-
ing 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 rules 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-
stand and keep our rules. Mature self-discipline is
a wonderful aid to happiness, paradoxical as that
We sincerely trust that your experience at Mary-
land will be a challenge to your intellect and an op-
portunity to grow in wisdom and charm. The best
of luck to you all!

Welcome to the Maryland campus. Now that you
know the important role that AWS will play dur-
ing your stay at the University and the rules you
are expected to follow, it's time to open the lid of
our treasure chest and see what's in store.
Hit the Books
First and foremost, the University of Maryland
is a community for learning. During your years
here, much of your time will be devoted to develop-
ing yourself academically, as well as socially. Set
up a study schedule and stick to it. Then there will
be hours for extra curricular activities and social
Get That Friendly Feeling
The University of Maryland is a huge place with
students from various sections of the country and
from different backgrounds. Be friendly, and be
interested in everyone around you, for you will
treasure these friendships during your college life
Group Living Takes Work
Dormitory life is fun, but large group living calls
for extra consideration of others. One of your first
and most important friends is your roommate.
Respect her ideas and she'll return your cooperation
with true friendship.
"Big Sis" Can HeEp
Your big sister in the dorm can be a helping
hand. Don't hesitate to confide in your new "sis"
and ask her advice. She can be of invaluable as-
sistance, particularly during orientation and the
first hectic days of classes.
Take Your Pick
The selection of activities is so broad and varied
that every interest and talent can be satisfied. You
as new students should partake of these treasures
sparingly during your first semester as you adjust
to your studies and college group living. The wise
and capable coed does a few things well and doesn't
spread herself too thin.
Mind your P's and Q's
We hope that most of you know what to do and
when to do it, so just a few words of etiquette ad-
vice. Avoid chewing gum in public — many of us are
guilty of resembling a cow chewing her cud. Obey
the smoking regulations stated in the rules section
and don't smoke while walking on the campus. Avoid
embarrassment for yourself and others by refrain-
ing from public displays of your affection, on the
campus and elsewhere.
Love is grand, but —
What to Wear
