violations of women's regulations, hears more seri- 
ous cases referred to them by the residence judicial 
boards, coordinates judicial policy in all residences, 

and acts as an appeals board. Extreme violations 
of University rules and those which need immediate 
consideration are referred to the Dean of Women.

The Academic Board's purposes are to encourage 
good scholarship and to improve faculty-student re-

vice president, secretary, treasurer, and committee 
chairmen plus four class representatives. The house 
director is the council advisor. 

These councils, as the administrative bodies, super- 
vise conduct and scholarship within each dormitory 
and promote extra-curricular activities. 

The officers and class representatives are elected 
in the fall. The chairman and members of the com- 
mittees are appointed by a committee composed of 
the new officers, the incoming and retiring presi- 
dents, and the house director from applications en- 
tered by interested students.

Welcome to the Maryland Campus. It is all yours 


First of all, the University is a community of 
learning. Much of your time will be devoted to 
academic development. A weekly study schedule 
that allows time, in addition to classes and studying, 
for meals, relaxation, plenty of sleep, exercise, rec- 
reation, and campus activities is a must. 


Maryland students come from all over the world. 
Be interested and share experiences with those 
around you. Learn names of all your classmates 
soon. Wear your orientation hat and name card; 
they will help you get acquainted! 


There are activities for every interest and talent. 
A wise freshman partakes sparingly of these activi- 
ties the first semester as she adjusts to college liv- 
ing. It is best to do a few things well. 

Group Living 

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. Re- 
spect her ideas and she'll return your cooperation 
with true friendship. The walls are also very thin. 
Gossip and loud conversations carry far. 

Big Sisters 

Your big sister in the dorm can be a helping 
hand. Do not hesitate to confide in her and ask her 
advice. She can be of invaluable assistance, par- 
ticularly during orientation, registration, and the 
first hectic days of classes. 

Freshman Counselors 

The student counselors in your dorm have been 
trained to help you with some of the more baffling 
little problems that often turn up. Whether it's 
dates or grades, or what to do in general, you will 
find them sympathetic listeners. With someone to 
listen to, your problem is half gone! 

Social Graces 

Most of you know what to do and when to do it. 
so just a few special words of etiquette advice. Stand 
up whenever a dean, housemother, or other woman 
enters the room, especially a guest. Always intro- 
duce your guest to the housemother. Avoid chew- 
ing gum in public, smoking while walking across 
campus, public displays of affection, and embarrass- 
ment for yourself and others by your conduct in the 
Dining Hall and at parties. 


A limited, moderate, but adjustable wardrobe with 
an emphasis on casual clothes will be the most use- 
ful. Classes, warm weather . . . cottons. Classes, 
colder weather . . . blouses, sweaters, skirts. Coats 
. . . light jacket, winter coat, raincoat, boots. Foot- 
ball games . . . heels and hose, tailored suits or 
dresses. Parties . . . wool and crepe dresses, heels 
and hose. Teas . . . afternoon dresses, hats and 
gloves. Church . . . dresses, suits, hats, and gloves. 
Special dates . . . cocktail dresses. Formal dances 
. . . gowns, long or short. 

Dorm Facilities 

Dormitory rooms contain beds, desks, straight 
chairs, one lamp, dressers, and usually one closet. 
Sheets and towels can be rented for $26 a year from 
a laundry service. These are changed once a week. 
You will need your own blankets, and pillow. Dor- 
mitories have washing machines, dryers, and ironing 

boards. You will need to supply 
your own irons. Sheets can not 
be laundered in the washing 



If you are one of the lucky 
coeds to own a car on campus, 
you must register it during 
Registration and must park in 
your designated parking area 
only. A car can be a handicap 
as there are many more cars 
than parking places. Tickets for 
illegal parking are very high. 



"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 im- 
plies of course a number of 
things that are not Themis, that 
are simply 'not done', at least 
by people who behave them- 


JUNE 1955.) 

We at the University of 
Maryland hope that our stu- 
dents will acquire this "tra- 
ditional norm" which for us is 
a kindly, gracious way of living. 
No set of rules can cover a phi- 
losophy of life, although these 
rules are designed to point the 


way to considerate, sane, and 
pleasant relationships with 
other people. However, any- 
one who cares about being 
a fine person, and who be- 
lieves that poise, generosity, 
gentleness. integrity, and 
honesty are among the most 
important things in life, will 
find it easy to understand 
and keep our rules. Mature 
self-discipline is a wonder- 
ful aid to happiness, para- 
doxical 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!

official A W S rules 


A. Definition: Signing out and in consists of 
recording required information on individual 
forms at the residence desk upon departure 
from the campus at any time and from the 
residence after 8 p. m. and upon return. 

B. "Campus:" This means the area including 
the University buildings and grounds, sorority 
and fraternity houses, and the College Park 
commercial district. 

C. Procedure: 

1. Each student must personally sign herself 
out and in. 

2. The following minimum information must 
be included: 

a. Time of departure 'according to the offi- 
cial dormitory clock). 

b. Expected return 'usually 10:30 p. m. or 
12:45 a. m.). 

c. Destination 'address and telephone, if 

d. With whom and how 'indicate last

D. Each woman is on her honor to sign out cor- 
rectly, to obey the University and state regu- 
lations which apply to conduct even if signed 
out for the weekend, and to behave with con- 
sideration and politeness wherever she may 
be. It is essential to know where she is in 
case of emergency. 


A. Phoning In and Leaving Late: See chart on 
pages 16 and 17 in column Latest time one 
can sign out. 

B. Illness: In case of illness or any family emer- 
gency be sure to see the house director. Sign 
out for an indefinite time. Bring back a note 
from parents or doctor so these leaves may 
be excused. 



A. When the front door 
is locked, the residence 
is officially closed. (See 
Chart pages 16 and 


B. Return after closing 
hours: In emergency 
cases when delayed or 
unable to return be- 
fore the residence clos- 
ing hour, a student 
must call her director 
and also notify the 

campus police. After 10:30 p.m. all calls to the 
University go through the campus police. If a stu- 
dent does not return to the dormitory, her parents 
and the campus police are notified; a call will help 
to avoid much worry and confusion. 


A. Definition: A student who returns to her resi- 
dence after the expected time of return that 
she has recorded on her card is considered 
late. Note: Sign out for the latest possible 
time. However if you sign out for 12:45 and 
return later than 10:30, (not 10:40 if you 
have late minutes) this counts as a late leave, 
not as an lateness. 

B. Procedures: All latenesses of less than thirty 
minutes are reported by the girl herself or by 
the desk worker to the residence judicial 
board. All unexcused latenesses of more than 
thirty minutes are referred by them to the 
campus judicial board. 


C. Penalties: 

1. Penalties vary with circumstances but gen- 
eraly consist of revoking 10:30's or late 
leaves, assigning approved odd jobs in the 
residence, or "campusing". 

2. A "campus" may be defined as: 

a. Residence Campus — confinement to resi- 
dence after 7 p. m. with no callers per- 

b. Room Campus — confinement to residence 
room after 7 p. m. with no phone calls 
or visitors permitted. 

c. Sign-in Campus — student signs in hourly 
all day when not in class and is confined 
to room after 7 p. m. 

3. Judicial Board must be attended before all 
other meetings. 

D. Accumulated Latenesses: 

1. Each woman student is granted the privi- 
lege of ten accumulated late minutes for 
each semester. A woman student may not 
be late more than three times even if this 
totals less than three minutes. 

2. If a student has accumulated more than ten 
late minutes or has had more than three 
latenesses, an automatic Saturday night 
campus will be given which must be taken 
the Saturday after the lateness. 

3. When latenesses total fifteen to thirty min- 
utes, there will be an automatic Saturday 
night campus, plus whatever penalty the 
residence judicial board decides upon. 

4. If a student has been late more than five 
times, the residence judicial board must 
refer her case to the campus judicial board.
