HELLO THERE! COME ON ABOARD! YOU ARE
ABOUT TO EMBARK ON THE FOUR MOST EX-
CITING YEARS OF YOUR LIFE. TO SOME— A
WONDERFUL DREAM. TO OTHERS— A DISIL-
LUSIONMENT, BUT TO ALL— EVENTFUL AND
WORTHWHILE. FOR SOME— THEY RUSH BY,
FOR OTHERS— THEY DRAG ON AND ON, BUT
FOR ALL— THEY ARE A TIME FOR GROWING
UP. THESE FOUR YEARS ARE COMPLETELY
YOUR OWN TO DO WITH AS YOU LIKE. WE
ARE HERE TO HELP YOU GET STARTED ON
THE RIGHT FOOT, GIVE YOU SOME TIPS, AN-
SWER A FEW OF YOUR QUESTIONS, AND TO
SAY WELCOME TO THE GOOD SHIP "UNIVER-
SITY OF MARYLAND."
MARYLAND AND YOU
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 developing
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 life.
Get That Friendly Feeling
The University of Maryland is a huge place with
students coming from all over the world. Be friend-
ly and interested in everyone around you, for you
will cherish these friendships during your college
life and afterwards.
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. Re-
spect her ideas and she'll return your cooperation
with true friendship. Remember — those walls are
thin — gossip and loud conversations carry far.
Your College Room
Your room will probably contain beds, desks,
straight chairs, a floor lamp, dressers and closets.
You'll need to bring your own blankets, pillows,
irons, extension cords, desk lamps etc. You may
bring your own towels and sheets or rent them
from the laundry service. As for curtains, spreads,
and rugs — why don't you wait and plan the colors
and style with your new roommate. Washing ma-
chines, dryers, and ironing boards can be found in
the laundry rooms of each dorm.
"Big Sis" Can Help
Your big sister in the dorm can be a helping hand.
Do not hesitate to confide in her and ask her ad-
vice. She can be of invaluable assistance, particular-
ly during orientation, registration, and the first
hectic days of classes.
Another Helping Hand
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
talk with, your problem is half gone!
Forget Your Cor
Due to the inade-
quate parking facili-
ties, it would be advis-
able not to bring your
car on campus unless
it is a physical or fi-
nancial necessity. You
will soon find that tires
and text books don't
Take Your Pick
The panorama of ac-
tivities is so broad and
varied that your every
interest and talent can
be satisfied. But don't spread yourself too
thin. Join in activities sparingly your first
semester as you adjust to your studies and
college living. The wise and capable coed
does a few things well.
Mind Your P's and Q's
Most of you know what to do and when
to do it, so just a few special words of
college etiquette advice. Stand up when-
ever a dean, housemother, or older woman
enters the room, especially a guest. Al-
ways introduce your guest to the house-
mother. Avoid chewing gum in public,
smoking while walking across campus,
embarrassing yourself and others by your
conduct in the Dining Hall and at parties
with public displays of affection. Love is
grand, but — I
Go to Church
An important aspect of college
life is a faith to live by and a belief
in God. Our chapel on campus is
available for students of all denom-
inations. On Sunday. Catholic masses
are held at 8:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and
12:30 p.m. An Interdenominational
Protestant service is held at
11:00 a.m. In addition to the
chapel, there are many other
churches in the College Park area waiting to have
you in their congregations.
What fo Wear
This is, of course, an important problem. To allevi-
ate the closet problem and to fit in best bring a
limited, moderate but adjustable wardrobe with an
emphasis on casual wear. The customary and ap-
propriate garb for classes is cottons when it's warm
and blouses, sweaters and skirts in the fall and
winter. Suits and heels for football games and wool
dresses for those week-end parties. Do bring a few
dressy dresses and gowns for special dates, and for
teas and church. Gloves and hats are a must for the
latter two. And above
all don't forget your
raincoat and boots ;
you will find them
the most important
part of your ward-
robe. (Also see p. 24)
Put in a Nutshell
To sum it all up,
be friendly, study
hard, be considerate
and discreet, partici-
pate in the activities
that interest you
most. Above all, don't
be afraid to ask ques-
tions. (It makes us
feel like old hands at
Remember, your fel-
low students, your
deans and the faculty
all want to be your
friends. Make the
most of your college
life — you'll never re-

What Is It
. . . The Associated Women Students is the campus
governing body for women students.
Who's In It
. . . every women student on the Maryland campus
— that means YOU! Daydodgers are just as much
a part of AWS as on-campus students. Their help
is needed to carry out the AWS program for more
social, academic and cultural activities for women
students. AWS gives off-campus women an oppor-
tunity to meet new friends and become a more ac-
tive part of the Maryland campus.
What Does It Do
. . . sets up and enforces the standards of conduct
and residence rules for women students, sponsors
cultural and social activities and coordinates wo-
men's activities on campus.
Why Have AWS
... to give women students an opportunity to
govern themselves within their grant of powers
from the administration.
Where do You Fit In
. . . your talents are needed desperately. Become
active in your dorm, sorority, and daydodger govern-
ment. If you are interested in becoming active in
AWS visit the AWS office, Room 113 in the Student
Union on any week-day afternoon for further in-
formation or application blanks for positions on any
AWS committee, talk to your dorm president, or
contact Harriet Husted, AWS president, at Somerset
EXECUTIVE COUNC"- I
The AWS Executive Council
The Executive Council is the central, coordinating
body of AWS. It passes upon all AWS legislation,
approves committee chairmanships recommended by
the AWS president, and delegates funds for AWS
activities from their SGA appropriations. The week-
ly meetings of the Council are open to all women
students. Girls who want to take an active part in
AWS activities are invited to attend these meetings.
The Judicial Board
Campus Judicial Board has jurisdiction over all
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
The purpose of the Acedemic Board is to en-
courage good scholarship and to improve faculty-
student relations. Aiding freshmen to adapt to col-
lege studies, handling of tutoring arrangements in
women's residences, publicizing job placement for-
ums and sponsoring the Dormitory Scholarship Cup,
which is given to the dorm with the highest scholas-
tic average are a few of its activities.
Each dorm has a council consisting of a president,
vice president, secretary, treasurer and committee
chairmen plus class or floor representatives. The
House Director is the council advisor.
These councils, as the administrative bodies, su-
pervise conduct and scholarship within each dorm
and promote extra-curricular activities.
The officers are elected in the spring. The chair-
men and members of the committees are appointed
by a committee composed of the new officers, the
incoming and retiring president and the House Di-
rector, from applications entered by interested stu-
The Dormitory Council
The Dorm Council consists of all the women's
dormitory presidents, who meet regularly to dis-
cuss problems of dormitory government. Ideas are
exchanged concerning the different programs car-
ried out in each dorm. Any dorm resident may
offer suggestions to the dorm council which may in
turn make suggestions to the AWS Executive Coun-
The Sorority Council
The Sorority Council, as the liaison with the Ex-
ecutive Council, discusses and acts upon the pro-
posals and problems of the different houses.

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.
SPECIAL SIGN OUTS
A. Phoning In and Leaving Late: See chart on
pages 16 and 17 in column Latest time one

unable to return be-
fore the residence
closing hour, a stu-
dent must call her di-
rector, (in sorority
houses, the House Director, manager or president
may be called.) The campus police must also be noti-
fied. After 10:30 p.m. all calls to the University go
through the campus police. If a student 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. (If you have late minutes you may use
them up to 10:40 p. m.)
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.
1. Penalties vary with circumstances but gen-
erally consist of revoking 10:30's or late
leaves, assigning approved odd jobs in the

2. A "campus" may be defined as:
a. Residence Campus — confinement to resi-
dence after 7 p. m. with no callers per-

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 ten 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.

3. Basketball games:

day night basketball games only if the

4. Off-Campus cultural activities: Free late
leaves may be granted for attendance at
off-campus cultural activities (i.e. sym-
phonies, plays) approved by the AWS Ex-
ecutive Council, if the student presents her
ticket stub to her House Director. Func-
tions at Constitution Hall, National Thea-
ter, and Arena Stage come in this category.
5. Special Permissions:

ties, personal necessity or exceptions not
covered by these regulations can be
secured through Miss Billings' office.
b. Special late leaves are granted only to
students with a 2.0 overall average.

E. Registration Week:
1. The residences close early (no late leaves)
until regular hours begin. (Special notices
will be sent.)
2. Students who wish to go home during this
week may do so without using late leaves.
Quiet hours are those times set aside in each resi-
dence for sleep and study. Without them, continu-
ous chaos would prevail. Would it not be upsetting
for you to be studying for a big exam, while the
rest of the floor is having a pizza party. Be con-
siderate. Keep your doors closed and your voices
low. Don't type from 12 o'clock to 8 a.m. Radios and
phonographs should be turned off at midnight also.
(For times see chart on pages 16 and 17)
Quiet hours will be enforced by the residence ju-
dicial board and executive council.
Be sure you know just when your beau may come
visiting — for there are definite calling hours. If you
don't, it can prove quite embarrassing
to that girl who gets caught in her
pajamas and to yourself. (For the
specific hours see the chart on pages
16 and 17).

You may invite guests to stay overnight on week-
ends and the night before a holiday only with the
permission of the House Director. Day-dodgers may
stay occasionally for some University function if
there is space available for them and the House Di-
rector gives her consent.
If you are planning for an overnight guest, secure
a guest card from the House Director and return
it filled out together with the guest fee 24 hours
prior to the guest's arrival. The guest fee is fifty
cents per night (one dollar if dormitory linens are
used). No guest fee is charged if the guest is a
resident of another campus dormitory. When your
guest arrives, you must introduce her to the House
Director and show her how to sign in and out.
Remember — you are responsible for your guest,
infractions of the rules she commits and must be in
residence during her stay. She is allowed the same
leave permission as her hostess and must abide by
the closing hours and other residence regulations
such as signing out and in during her stay. Arrange-
ments for guests who stay more than a few days
must be made through the Dean of Women's Office.
VISITING A FRATERNITY
Women students may attend only those functions
regestered on the University Social Calendar which
is sent to all residences by Friday of each week.
Desserts on week nights may last until 8 a.m. and
women students may not go to fraternity houses
during intermissions when attending campus dances.
(For Calling Hours see chart on pages 16 and 17),
The housemother or an approved chaperone must
be present at all times that coeds are in the house.
Before a member may bring a coed into the house,
he must obtain permission from the house mother.
These rules are for your safety and protection.
Please help us by obeying them fully. The risk of
impulsive, unwise action is obvious.
Close relatives of fraternity members may come
to a fraternity house for a social visit which may
include lunch or dinner, provided they do not re-
main during study hours which begin at 1:30 and
IN MEN'S RESIDENCES
Women are not permitted to visit the men's dor-
mitories or rooms except at special registered par-
ties in the recreation room or living room. Parents
and relatives desiring to visit residents of the dor-
mitories should call at the dormitory office.
HOW TO DRESS
Women students may wear Burmuda shorts or
tailored slacks in the lower level of the Student
Union, on campus and in the College Park area on
Saturdays only. Active sports wear of any kind even
when covered by a coat is never allowed in the
Dining Hall, Library. Classroom Buildings, Admini-
stration Buildings or Chapel. The immediately pre-
ceding statement also applies to reception halls and
lobbies during men's calling hours, although sports
attire may be worn in the recreation room, if the
Executive Council approves.
Sports wear must be covered by a long coat or
skirt when en route to physical education classes
or to buildings or courts where active sports are
being played, except on Saturdays. If these rules
are not strictly adhered to, our Saturday privileges
will be revoked. We feel that you tend to act like
a lady if you are dressed like one.
You may sun bath only in those areas set aside
for this purpose by the Dean's office. (Special no-
tices are sent.) Dress is in keeping with the usual
standards of good taste.
There is no need to explain why we must have
fire drills. The student fire marshall and House
Director of each residence will be responsible for
scheduling one fire drill a month. Don't gripe and
complain when that bell goes off. It's for your own
safety. When the time comes, leave your light on
and your door open, put on a long coat and out-
door shoes, then walk quick-
ly and quietly to your assign-
ed exit for roll call. You
may return when the signal
Entrances and Exits — Be-
cause so many of the resi-
dences are situated close to
the street, all doors except
the front door must be kept
locked from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Reception Halls and Lob-
bies may be used for study
after closing hours with the
House Director's consent. Al-
though it is late there will
be no smoking and the room
must be kept tidy or the
privilege will be withdrawn.
Remember to pull down the
The lobby and recreation
room are public so be dis-
creet and avoid embarrassing others and yourself
by your behavior. Remember— you are also respon-
sible for the conduct of your guests.
Smoking Regulations are employed for safety and
not just to inconvenience or annoy you. Smoking
is permitted everywhere in the residence except the
lobby, is avoided while walking across campus and
is prohibited in the classrooms.
Pets are fine at home but have no place at college.
Don't feed that stray cat, he'll fall in love with
your dorm and sneak in at every chance. He can't
stay so why encourage him.
Telephone Calls may be received from 8:00 a.m.
to 10:00 p.m. on Mondays, to 10:30 p.m. on other
week nights and to 11:00 p.m. on weekends. Em-
ergency calls will be transmitted by the University
Police who cover the switch board at all other times.
You may call from the dorm extension phones to
other campus extensions before 4 p.m. Keep your
neighbor in mind and limit the conversation to five
minutes — she wants to hear from her boyfriend too.
House and Room Regulations — As the Home-
makers of tomorrow, we should practice tidiness.
Beds must be made and rooms in order by 10:00 a.m.
for room inspection by the House Director. Don't
wait until you hear the rattle of her keys to start
scrambling around the room. A neat room breeds
a neat person.
A dormitory House Committee with the House
Director may set up house rules and endorse those
required by the University. These are for safety
and health reasons.
1. Food and dishes may not be taken from the Din-
2. Coke bottles must be returned to the cases pro-
vided for this purpose.
3. The only electrical appliances allowed in rooms
are fans, hair-dryers, electric clocks, radios, and
4. After dark when lights are on, shades must be
5. The dormitory is not a tenement house! Calling
or talking from windows is taboo.
6. Food may not be kept on window sills.
7. Food kept in rooms must be placed in metal con-
tainers with tight covers.
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 func-
tion recognized by the University as a student or-
According to Maryland state law it is unlawful
to sell or furnish any alcoholic beverages 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 unlawful
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 im-
mediate company of one of his parents or legal
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 purpose of obtaining or
consuming food, unless accompanied by a parent
3.) to purchase alcoholic beverages or misrepresent
his age to obtain alcoholic beverages or to have
them on or about his person.
Safety — Although we like to think everyone is
trustworthy, many strangers gain access to the
University residences. Lock the door to your room
when you leave. It's worth the small effort (perhaps
in gold). The University cannot be responsible for
the loss or theft of articles.
NEVER WALK ALONE ON CAMPUS AFTER
DARK — you are risking your life and safety. AWS
has been lenient with the closing hours. Be satis-
fied — any woman student who leaves her residence
hall after closing hours is liable to get into much

It is always exciting to think of starting out on
a trip, especially an ocean voyage. You are planning
where to go. the things you will do, the different
people you will meet, the fascinating places you
will visit, the new and beautiful surroundings. You
have dreams of unexpected adventures and look for-
ward to learning more about the world and the
people in it.
In many ways, a university is like a hugh ship
carrying you off to a new world. Some know exact-
ly where they are going and why, plan ahead wise-
ly, make the most of every opportunity, and have
relatively smooth sailing; others drift along in an
aimless fashion, and when they come to the end
of the voyage, they hardly know where they have
been or what has happened to them on the way.
There are always a few who rush on board in a
state of vast disorganization and remain confused
from start to finish and others who drag themselves
reluctantly aboard and want to leave before the
trip is well begun.
What kind of an experience are you going to
have? This is your university and you are beginning
what can be the most rewarding years of your life.
You can enrich your life tremendously by thinking
ahead and planning how best to develop your mind,
increase your spiritual awareness, become more sen-
sitive to the needs of other people, more tactful,
more generous and gracious. These are the goals
of a truly well educated person.
So, plan wisely and come well prepared. We wel-
come your enthusiasum and energy, we need you
and we are looking forward to your coming. The
very best of luck!
