We of the Dean of Women's Office bid you 

Your main purpose in entering the University 
is to acquire an education. A great part of this 
you will get in the classrooms and the Library, 
from professors, books, and from one another. 
It is also hoped that you will recognize and take 
advantage of the extra-curricular offerings of the 

Though the University is large and as such may 
seem confusing at times, there are a great many 
people here — fellow students, faculty, administra- 
tors and staff — who are personally interested in 
your welfare and happiness and will be pleased to 
be of help if you will let them know your concerns. 

When you arrive on campus you will be given 
much information to help you learn your way 
around our community. In addition, regulations applicable to all students are set forth 
in a booklet entiiied Universify General and Academic Regulations. The catalog of the 
College in which you register will also set forth certain requirements with which you must 
become familiar. 

Included in this handbook are rules and bits of advice from two campus organizations 
to which all undergraduate women automatically belong — the Associated Women Students 
and the Women's Recreation Association. AWS is the student government organization 
through which the women largely determine the social rules and regulations by which they 

WRA offers a great variety of sports activities which will not only prove beneficial from 
a physical standpoint, but will also enable you to make friends with others who share your 
interests. Each organization extends to you an Invitation to participate — won't you accept! 

Remember, this is now YOUR UNIVERSITY. If we In the Dean of Women's Office can 
in any way assist you in taking advantage of and enjoying all that Is here for you, please 
give us the privilege of doing so.

Welcome to Maryland. Your own in- 
itiative Is the key to friendship, culture, 
and participation In self-government and 
student activities. The Associated Women 
Students Is composed of all the under- 
graduate women at Maryland — Greek and 
Independent, Daydodger and Dormdweller. 
Our existence Is circular. We are organized 
to serve you and in return we need your 
ideas, talents, and enthusiastic support. 
Consider yourself an important part of 
AWS. As a new member of AWS, It is 
your privilege and duty to take part In 
making and enforcing the rules by which 
the women students at Maryland live. 

We have tried to anticipate and answer your questions about college life. 
Do you have more? Feel free to ask. Now that we have met, a friendly 
"hll" will serve to open a conversation with any of the officers of AWS. 

AWS President 

WELCOME to the University of Mary-

art of an organization that gives every Maryland co-ed the opportunity to

You and every other woman student at the University are members of 
AWS — the Associated Women Students. It Is your governing body, making 
the rules which guide you in habits of dress and manner. It has its counter- 
part in the Men's League. Both the AWS President and the Men's League 
President are members of the Student Government Association Cabinet. 

hHeaded by the Executive Council of President, First Vice-President, Second 
Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer, AWS is closely attuned to your 
problems. You are represented at each meeting by your class representative 
and at dormitory and sorority council meetings by your dormitory or sorority 
president. AWS meetings are open to the public, and everyone is invited 
TO attend especially those of you who would like to become active in AWS 

You can take your study problems to your Academic Board Representa- 
tive, and she. In turn, will take them to the campus Academic Board. The 
Academic Board is concerned with the scholastic standards of women stu- 
dents and has done a great deal to curtail the campus cheating problem and 
encourage a stimulating academic atmosphere. 

Rules governing dormitory and sorority living were set up by the Campus 
Judicial Board. You are represented here by the chairman of your dorm 
or sorority judicial board. Most disciplinary problems are settled within 
your own residence, but habitual miscreants will be asked to appear before 
Campus Judicial Board. 

In addition to these programs AWS has a long list of activities which 
it sponsors that are of interest to women. Among these are the annual Christ- 
mas Pageant, Orphans' Party and Bridal Fair. 

Those of you interested in participating in any AWS program may get 
an application from your residence president or the Dean of Women's office. 
When you have filled one out, return It to the president or Dean's office. 


AWS has designed many activities especially with you in mind. Most of 
them are annual events, programs which you will enjoy your first year and, 
perhaps, help to create in the years to come. Your Introduction to AWS 
will probably be the Big Sister Program. Whether you are a dorm dweller, 
a Daydodger or become a sorority pledge, you will have an upper-class 
"sister" to whom you can turn In your more confused moments. 

As a dorm dweller you will meet your big sister when you move In, or, 
If you are a Daydodger, you will meet her at the Coke Date in the Student 
Union if she hasn't seen you beforehand. 

In December AWS presents Its annual Christmas Pageant, hield in the 
Chapel, the pageant recreates the beauty and magic of the traditional 
Christmas story. After the pageant, groups of students go caroling and are 
often Invited into the homes of local residents for hot chocolate and cookies.

Early In the spring a young 
girl's fancy turns to thoughts of 
romance, and AWS is right In 
step with Its Bridal Fair. Plan- 
ning a wedding or not, you will 
find sonnething of Interest at the 
Bridal Fair where there are booths 
with merchandise from jewelry to 
sports cars. The highlights of the 
evening are a fashion show by 
Julius Garfinkle and the raffling 
of a wedding cake. 

AWS tries to lend a helping 
hand wherever It can and every 
spring holds a party for Washing- 
ton area orphans. The party Is 
held In conjunction with the Pan- 
hellenic Council. Those who at- 
tend do their best to cheer the 
children with games, candy and 

AWS sponsors a counseling 
program for everyone, but It Is 
especially geared to freshmen. It 
can help you learn how to study 
and how to decide which major 
Is best for you. AWS also spon- 
sors biannual employment con- 
ferences. These are attended by 
representatives of all the major 
companies with offices In the area. 
Talks dre given on appropriate 
dress, how to handle Interviews 
and other topics of Interest to the 
potential career girl. Miss Future 
Success is also selected. 

To develop leadership qualities 
in women AWS holds an annual 
workshop to which an outstand- 
ing personality is invited to speak. 
Afterwards, campus problems of 
all kinds are discussed, many from 
new and exciting angles. 

For the first time last year 
AWS, In conjunction with Diadem, 
sponsored a women's convoca- 
tion to which they invited Nancy 
hianschman, CBS Correspondent. 
The purpose was to honor women 
students on campus, the honor- 
arles, outstanding members of 
each sorority and dormitory, and 
women's clubs. It was a big suc- 
cess, and we hope it will be con- 
tinued as an AWS tradition. 

All of these programs are 
planned and executed by com- 
mittees selected by the AWS Ex- 
ecutive Council. Also, AWS has 
many standing committees that 
need able and eager volunteers. 
These Include the Cultural Com- 
mittee, the Social Committee, the 
Elections Committee, the Consti- 
tution Committee, the Secretarial 
Committee, the Publicity Com- 
mittee, and the Information Please

At first you are going to think AWS has a rule for every nninute of the day, fronn the 
time you get up to the tinne you go to bed. hlowever, Maryland rules for wonnen are 
liberal in comparison with others across the country, and as you become acquainted with 
them you will realize the reasoning behind each one. Also, now that you are enrolled at 
Maryland, you will have a voice in future modifications and changes of these regulations.

LATENESS: Upon the accumula+ion of 10 late miniates in any one semester, whether ac- 
cumulated on several occasions or on one, you will be penalized by your 
residence judicial board. The penalty will usually be a campus, its severity 
depending upon a consideration of the circumstances surrounding the indi- 
vidual case. The following are definitions of the three types of campuses 
which may be imposed for late minutes: 

1) Residence Campus: Confinement to residence after 7:00 p.m. with 
no callers or phone calls. 

2) Room Campus: Confinement to residence room after 7:00 p.m. with 
no callers or phone calls.

MEN'S CALLING HOURS: Memorize these hours. They are the times men can visit you 
in your residence. 

Monday: 12 noon -9:45 p.m. 

Tuesday through Thursday: 12 noon- 10:00 p.m.

Sunday: 9:00 a.m. -10:00 p.m.

are ready. Calling hours at the sorority houses are decided within Univer- 
sity limits by the housemother. 

Recreation room calling hours in the residences vary according to the 
facilities in your dorm. These may begin no earlier than 1:00 p.m. and end 
no later than 9:30 p.m. Consult your Bulletin Board. 

MEN'S RESIDENCES: Co-ed undergraduates are not allowed to visit the off-campus 
'•ooms or apartments of any male students nor are they to visit any men's 
campus residences except when attending registered social events. 

VISITING A FRATERNITY: Women students may attend only those functions registered 
on the University Social Calendar which is sent to all residences by Friday 
of each week. Desserts on week nights may last until 8:00 p.m., and women 
students may not go to fraternity houses during intermissions when attending 
campus dances. 

The housemother or an approved chaperone must be present at all times 
that co-eds are in the house. Before a member may bring a co-ed into the 
house, he must obtain permission from the housemother. These rules are for 
your protection and good reputation. Please obey them fully. The risk of 
impulsive, unwise action is obvious.

Saturday — I :00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.* 

Sunday — 2:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.*

in your dormitory on Friday and Saturday provided your Head Resident 
agrees and there is room for her. Also with the consent of the Head Resi- 
dent a Daydodger may spend the night following a University function if 
she is unable to get home. 

To make the proper arrangements for your guest, you must give your Head 
Resident a completed guest card 24 hours in advance. When your guest 
arrives, introduce her to the Head Resident, show her how to sign in and 
out and acquaint her with the residence customs. You are responsible for 
her and her Infractions. 

QUIET HOURS: Quiet hours are based on courtesy, and it is up to you to see that they 
work. Do not type after 12 midnight or before 8:00 a.m. Keep your door 
closed if you are being sociable. Quiet hours will be enforced by your 
judicial board, and excesses will bring a withdrawal of privileges. 

Quiet hours are In effect ALL THE TIME Monday through Friday except 
for the lunch hour, 11:30 a.m. — 1:30 p.m.; the dinner hour, 4:30 p.m. — 7:00

taste on the campus except for the following locations: Classroom Buildings, 
upper levels of the Student Union, Dining Halls, Library, Chapel, Administra- 
tion Buildings, Residence lobbies and living rooms (except upon leaving and 
entering) . 

This is a new ruling and will remain In effect only as long as it is not

organization function. 

According to Maryland state law It Is unlawful to sell or furnish any 
alcoholic beverages at any time to a minor (under 21 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 2 I : 

I ) to enter the premises of a holder of a class B Beer, Wine and Liquor

consuming food, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian; 

3) to purchase alcoholic beverages or misrepresent his age to obtain 
alcoholic beverages or to have them on or about his person. 

( 15) 


The University is a big place and even your residence halls usually have more than 100 
inhabitants. Most of these general regulations are matters of common courtesy, but they 
are often forgotten in the hustle and bustle of college life. It will take a little extra 
effort on your part, but the rewards make the effort very worthwhile. 

More than anything else, the University wants you to be safe and happy in an atmosphere 
conducive to study and friendship. The rules will take you only part of the way; your own 
honor and integrity, kindness and consideration must bridge the gap between a college 
life which is just ordinary and one which is a really great experience. 

Residence doors — Because so many of the residences are close to the street or to fields 
and woods, all doors except the front door must be kept locked after dark. They will re- 
main closed until 7:30 a.m., but you may leave the dorm at 6:00 a.m. If you so desire. 

Reception lobbies may be used for study after closing hours with the Head Resident's 
consent. Smoking, however, is not allowed, and please pull down the shades! You may 
smoke anywhere else in your residence. 

Pets are not allowed. Please don't encourage those strays — you just make it harder 
for them and everyone concerned. 

Telephones are busy so limit your call to 3 minutes. You may make and receive calls 
from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Monday, 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday 
and 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on weekends. 

Room inspections will be made several times a week by your Head Resident. For safety 
and health reasons these rules must be enforced: 

1) Food and dishes may not be taken from the Dining Hail. 

2) Coke bottles must be returned to the cases provided for this purpose. 

3) The only electrical appliances allowed in rooms are table 12-inch fans, hairdryers, 
electric clocks, radios and phonographs. 

4) After dark when lights are on, shades must be drawn. 

5) Calling or talking from windows is prohibited. 

6) Food may not be kept on window sills. 

7) Food kept in rooms must be placed in metal containers with tight covers. 

Please keep your dormitory room locked when you are not there. You may know that 
everyone on your floor is honest, but strangers can wander in. 

Never walk alone on campus after dark — it is not safe. 

( 16) 


Set up a study schedule; it will prove Invaluable if you stick to it. 

Go easy in getting into activities. Maryland is such a big place you can 
get lost overnight and nniss the point of your college career — namely educa- 

Problems, big and little, may come thick and fast your first few weeks. 
Take advantage of the help your big sister, your hlead Resident, graduate 
assistant or the Counseling Center can give you. 

You may have problems, too, with your roommate. Chances are she Is 
someone you have never met, and two diametrically opposed personalities 
may have to learn to live together. Talk out your problems and you can 
solve most of them. 

College rooms will respond to a little imagination — bright drapes, spreads 
and pillows. You will want to bring blankets, linens, lamps, personal knick- 
knacks, etc. An early project with your roommate could be planning the 
decor of your room. 

Common courtesy is a must. It Is always nice to rise when an older person 
comes into a room — particularly your hlead Resident, a dean or a professor. 

Most of you probably want to know what to wear. At Maryland everyone 
is casual. For classes most girls prefer all-year-round-cottons when it's warm 
and skirts and sweaters In the fall and winter. Wool dresses for dates down- 
town and one or two cocktail dresses for really BIG events will stand you 
in good stead. That tailored wool will also be just right for attending ser- 
vices in the Chapel or other area churches on Sunday. Regardless of your 
faith there is a chaplain and a youth group to serve you. 

Welcome to Maryland and Good Luck!

The WRA Council is made up of the officers you elect, committee chair- 
men, interest group and club leaders, Intramural managers, and representa- 
tives from each dorm, sorority and the Daydodgers. 

Your WRA Representative is the main link between you and the Council. 
She keeps you informed on events and brings your ideas to Council meetings. 

Applications for leadership roles may be obtained from your WRA 
representative or from the WRA office in Prelnkert Field hHouse. You may 
become more active by attending Council meetings and offering your help. 

You are always welcome at the Council meetings whether you have a 
specific job or not. WRA is your organization! 

ARFCW, the Athletic and Recreation Federation of College Women, 

is the national organization of which WRA is a member. Some students have 
started saving for its 1963 convention at the Woman's College of the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina in Greensboro. Maybe you would like to go! 



Sigma Tau Epsilon honors those women who have contributed outstanding 
leadership and service in the WRA program and its affiliated clubs, Aqua- 
liners and Modern Dance. To be eligible for tapping a girl must have com- 
pleted her freshman year and have maintained an overall average of at 
least 2.5. 

Tapping ceremonies are held twice each year, at the second WRA meet- 
ing of the Spring semester and at the annual WRA Banquet each May. The 
members of Sigma Tau Epsilon have an annual dinner each spring, which is 
held in a member's home. Sigma Tau Epsilon helps with many WRA projects 
and ushers at various University functions. This year Sigma Tau Epsilon 
conducted a campus-wide survey to determine WRA participation and to 
evaluate the WRA program. A total of 2600 questionnaires were returned 
and tabulated. 

The 1962-63 officers of Sigma Tau Epsilon are: President, Robyn Rudolph; 
Vice-President, Dale Devey; Secretary, Teddie Lou Kelly; and Treasurer, 
Gloria Silverstein. The members include: Amy Sakers, Cecille Pelovitz, Diane 
Baxter, and Virginia Crocker. Those tapped at the 1962 Spring Banquet 
were Joan Wilkinson and Marie Powell.

A summer of fun and relaxation . . . but now it is timie to concentrate 
en those books! However, WRA offers a wonderful program of intramural 
sports for recreation between study hours! 

Each season brings forth some popular activities. In the fall tennis singles, 
badminton doubles, archery, bowling and ping pong offer a challenge. The 
v/inter season brings basketball, volleyball and badminton singles, while 
springtime produces the swimming meet, softball and tennis doubles. CO-ED 
volleyball and bowling tournaments will be planned in cooperation with the 
Men's Intramural Department. 

Intramural tournaments are arranged on an organizational level; you play 
for your dormitory, sorority or the Daydodgers. Your WRA representative, 
in dorm or sorority meetings, will keep you informed of the team and indi- 
vidual sport schedules. 


Since the Daydodgers have a more difficult time seeing each other, their 
representative will call a meeting before each team sport tournament to get 
organized. Individual sports enthusiasts may obtain entry blanks either from 
their WRA representative or the WRA office In Prelnkert Field hlouse. That 
is all, and you will be notified when to play. 

Several of the dorms and sororities assist with the Intramural program 
by donating the trophies which are awarded to the tournament winners at 
the annual Spring Banquet. The tournament managers are usually members 
of these "sponsoring" groups. A trophy must be won three consecutive years 
to become a permanent possession. 

Dress for intramurals is CASUAL. However, tennis shoes in the gym and 
bowling shoes at the alleys are always worn. Equipment for practice or 
individual activity may be checked out from Prelnkert Field hlouse Monday 
through Friday from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m. 


The swimming pool in Preinkert Is open from 4:00 to 5:15 on Monday, 
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons and on Wednesday nights from 
6:30 to 8:00. Bring self and cap. Suits and towels will be supplied. 

CO-RECREATIONAL swimming is held at Cole Activities Building on 
Friday nights from 7:30 to 9:30 and on Sundays from 1:00 to 5:30 and 7:30 
to 9:30 p.m. Bring self, cap and bathing suit of course! 

Perhaps most important in WRA is the fact that you do not have to be 
an expert to take part. The emphasis of the intramural program Is on FUN 
and the participation of everyone — not on winning and the participation of 
only the more highly skilled. You are encouraged to try your hand at any 
activity. Be seeing you!

Participate in WRA's "club-type" program! You may also obtain points 
for your organization by being active in the interest groups. Choose from 
any of the eleven seasonal groups. Appropriate dress is the only requisite. 
Membership Is open to all beginners as well as experienced persons. All 
equipment (except for ice skating) will be provided. 

During Its regular season, each interest group meets once or twice a week 
for practice periods. Sometimes they play other area colleges. The teams 
which engage in these competitive matches are not varsity teams, but are 
made up of all members who wish to participate. Refreshments served after 
a game afford both schools an opportunity to socialize! 

Continue the activities you have always enjoyed ... or cultivate a new 
interest. At least one of these groups will hold some exciting moments for 
you. Announcements of meetings are found in the Diamondback. Watch 
for them!

Two performing groups are affiliated with WRA — Modern Dance and 
Aqualiners. These clubs, OPEN TO BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, add to 
the variety of the WRA program and to your enjoyment either as a partici- 
pant or as a receptive viewer. 


If you are a fairly strong swimmer with good form and can learn new skills 
quickly, Aqualiners, Maryland's synchronized swimming club, has a place 
for you. Tryouts are held in the early fall; the dates will be announced soon 
after school starts. 

The club practices every Tuesday night in the Preinkert Pool polishing 
strokes, learning new stunts and putting together the big water pageant pre- 
sented in the spring under the magic spell of lights and music. The numbers 
are choreographed and the scenery and costumes are designed and made 
by the club members. Last year's show, "Once Upon a Year", based on the 
12 months and special holidays, was a real success. 

Aqualiners is the only synchronized swimming group in the Washington 
area — a real distinction to be a member! 



"Interest Is the first qualification" for Modern Dance Club mennbership, 
which gives you an opportunity for creative expression as well as recreation 

end enjoyment. 

Those with ilttle or no experience are welcome to join the Beginning Group 
at 6:00 p.m. every Tuesday to learn basic techniques and the construction 
of a dance. Participation In group dances and helping with publicity, cos- 
tumes and back stage work for the various performances are the main activi- 
ties of the group. The Advanced Group meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 
and selects its members from those with previous experience. 

The Modern Dance Club members are constantly rehearsing for their many 
programs and demonstrations. Last year they performed at neighboring 
high schools and colleges and climaxed their activities with the Annual Con- 
cert on campus. Some of the Advanced Group also performed In the Uni- 
versity Theater musical, and others helped to bring a doctoral dissertation 
to completion by an excellent performance In New York City. 

Think you might be Interested In joining such an Illustrious group? You 

are always welcome: 



For the past four years co-eds have been wearing sharp University of 
Maryland blazers. WRA started this tradition with the aid of the Robert 
Rollins Blazer Company. These well made jackets have an emblem em- 
broidered on the pocket with either sorority letters or class year, an Inside 
pocket, choice of piping and an extra plain pocket for later use. 

The Rollins Blazer, popular on college campuses throughout the country, q.vq 
personally tailored and especially designed for every well-dressed co-ed. 
Fittings ^VQ made twice a year — fall and spring — allowing you to take full 
advantage of blazer weather. They are available in five colors — red, white, 
camel, navy blue and oxford grey — with prices ranging from $22.95 to $29.95. 

When you wear your stylish Maryland University blazer, just see how 
people will look twice, admire it and ask you where you got It. This apparel 
is a musf for every girl! 



Every spring WRA climaxes Its year's activities with the traditional 
banquet. At this time the newly elected WRA officers are installed, Sigma 
Tau Epsilon taps its new members, and the tournament trophies are awarded. 
The culmination of these activities Is the eagerly awaited presentation of the 
WRA Participation Cup. Besides being an event for these purposes, the 
banquet also presents an opportunity for much enjoyment and hilarity as the 
humorous events of the past year are reviewed and laughed about. 

Under the chairmanship of Gloria Silverstein the May, 1962, Banquet was 
held In the Rotary Room of the University Dining hHall. Dr. Arthur Stelnhaus, 
Professor of Physiology and Dean of George Williams College In Chicago, 
highlighted the evening with his address entitled "What I Have Learned from 
Animals." Dr. Stelnhaus has served as chief of the division of physical ed- 
ucation and health activities in the U. S. Office of Education and has been 
president of the American Academy of Physical Education. A listing of his 
other positions and honors would cover pages. It was Indeed an honor for 
WRA to have such an outstanding guest speak to the group. 

In his talk Dr. Stelnhaus cleverly and humorously compared the results of 
experiments with animals to human reactions and responses. 'He spoke on 
the problem of people not attaining the full capacity of their strength and 
suggested that "The reason we do not have enough strength is that we in- 
hibit It. We plant Inhibitions in our lives." He then commended recreation 
by pointing out that any activity in which one may lose himself and direct 
his full attention is an excellent therapeutic method for alleviating Inhibitions. 
Dr. Stelnhaus' speech convinced the audience once again that WRA Is cer- 
tainly worthwhile! 

Everyone who has participated in WRA Is welcome at the banquet. We'll 
be expecting you this spring! 

Dr. Arthur Steinhaus, Professor of Physiology and Dean of George Williams College, holds up his 
"brainless" pigeon in a demonstration as he speaks at the May, 1962, Banquet.

The presentation of the WRA Participation Cup at the annual Spring 
Banquet is the clinnax of the year's activities. To win this cup, an organization 
must have been active in most of the events sponsored by WRA throughout 
the year. Participation points are awarded to each dormitory, sorority, and 
the Daydodgers for taking part in intramurals, interest groups and affiliated 
clubs. Points are also given for placing in the tournaments, but it is not 
necessary to be the champion in order to win the cup. 

Carroll hHall pulled quite an upset this spring when it overcame the earlier 
lead of the Daydodgers, three-time winner of the cup, by an Impressive score 
of 393. Close behind the Daydodgers' 345 points came Alpha Chi Omega 
with 319. Wicomico Hall was fourth and Kappa Alpha Theta was fifth. 
Credit should also be given to the other 28 participating dorms and soror- 
ities that joined in all the fun. 

This year, again, the field is wide open. Carroll hiall wishes each organiza- 
tion the best of luck for 1962-63 but warns one and all that it has hopes of 
repeating Its accomplishment of winning the Participation Cup.
