On behalf of the Associated Women Students, it is my 
pleasure and privilege to welcome all of you to the 1963-1964 
year at the University of Maryland. May I say you are very 
fortunate, for you have a wealth of experiences ahead of you. 

AWS is an organization composed of every woman on 
campus. In this capacity it encompasses all phases of campus 
life and therefore is of utmost importance to the planning and 
execution of policies concerning the woman student. AWS 
has programs and activities to offer ranging from the social 
and academic to the political and judicial spheres. The oppor- 
tunity for your participation is free for the asking. 

AWS is here to assist you, to lead you, and to guide you 
toward the ultimate realization and fulfillment of your high- 
est collegiate goals. Through AWS programs, with your 
participation and support, we hope to build more mature, 
self-confident, and well-rounded college women of today with 
the character, leadership, and citizenship to serve them in the 
future. 

Claudia Miller 
AWS President

AW^S IS YOU 




When you first 
come to the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. 
you are most hkely 
confronted with 
new and different 
experiences, both 
academic and so- 
cial: and, because 
of the size of the 
student body and of 
the campus, you 
may feel somewhat 
removed from many 
campus activities. 
A\"\'S is your or- 
ganization to help 
you belong to the 
campus. AWS is 
YOU — it is all the 
women students 
here at Maryland. 
Through AWS you 
can participate in various activities and have a chance to meet many 
college women on this campus and on others. You can develop and exert 
leadership ability and have the opportunity to govern yourself through 
the AWS judicial boards. 

The purpose of this booklet is to introduce you to AWS. Information 
Please attempts to let you know just what AWS does on this campus 
and how you can participate in its activities. 

THE ORGAXIZATIOX OF AWS is based upon election and appoint- 
ment. The president and executi\"e council are elected from and by the 
entire body of women students. On the residence level, executive coun- 
cils are elected by the girls in each dormitory. The standing committees 
and chairmanships of special programs are appointed ofhces and are 
staffed entirely by interested women students. 

When positions are available for these appointed offices, advertise- 
ments are placed in the Diamondback, the school newspaper. You may 
pick up an application in the Student Union, in the Dean of Woman's 
office in the North Administration Building, or in your residence hall. 
You may also find out more information by contacting one of the many 
girls already active in AWS; she can tell what to do and whom to see.

SPECIAL EVENTS 



The programs of AWS are numerous and varied. They offer many 
opportunities for leadership, participation, and enjoyment. If you are 
interested in working on any program, please contact the chairman. 



BIG SISTER PROGRAM AND FRESHMAN COUNSELOR PROGRAM 

An extra helping hand is extended by specially assigned upperclass- 
men to all freshmen and transfer students who enter Maryland. The 
dilemmas of a new school are explained so that all students may become 
acquainted with the problems and privileges of a large university. 
Whether you are a dorm-dweller or a commuter, the academic and social 
information available is definitely beneficial. During Orientation Week, 
Big Sister dinners and coke dates are arranged to help everyone to meet 
each other. 

Chairmen: Commuters — Janet Bode, Delta Gamma 

Dormitories — Ruth Rathgeber, Montgomery West 

CHRISTMAS PAGEANT 

With the arrival of mistletoe, holly, and snowflakes, AWS and Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon fraternity turn thoughts toward the more spiritual side 
of Christmas with their programs of carols, excerpts from religious 
works, and reading selections. Following the tableau of the Christmas 
story and the benediction, students from all dormitories, sororities, and 
fraternities go caroling throughout the campus, ending their singing 
at President Elkins' home. 

Chairman: to be appointed 

HOUSE DIRECTORS' RECEPTION 

"Getting to know you" might well be the theme of this AWS affair. 
To promote more friendly relationships with the new and old house 
directors, a gathering, such as a tea or card party, is sponsored each 
year so that these "school-year mothers" may become better acquainted 
with AWS. 

Chairman: to be appointed 

(8) 



BRIDAL FAIR 

Thoughts of orange blossoms and June weddings take precedence 
over campus life in the spring when nationally known companies, in 
conjunction with AWS, present displays of household goods and per- 
sonal products — all appropriate for the soon-to-be bride. Trousseau 
fashions, china, crystal, silver, kitchen ware, and other items are ar- 
ranged in special booths for the interest of all. 

Chairmen; Judy Favier, Delta, Delta, Delta 

Jean DeGaston, Kappa Alpha Theta 

ORPHANS' PARTY 

Returning to the days "when we were a couple of kids," students 
relive the carefree memories of their younger days while treating one 
of the area's orphanages to a special party or outing with favors, re- 
freshments, and games. In union with Panhellenic Council, sororities, 
and dormitories, AWS makes special arrangements so that this event 
will be a day to be remembered by all the children. 

Chairman: Marcia Sibley, Alpha Chi Omega 

For information about programs for which chairmen have not yet 
been appointed, contact Claudia Miller, AWS president, Delta, Delta,

HONORARIES 



Girls who have made outstanding contributions in some phase of Uni- 
versity life are honored and recognized for their achievements by being 
tapped by one or more of the following honoraries. These honoraries 
recognize scholastic, social, leadership, and service accomphshments by 
women in all four classes. With the exception of Phi Kappa Phi, all are 
solely for women. 

ALPHA LAMBDA DELTA 

Alpha Lambda Delta offers an incentive to all freshman girls to main- 
tain a high scholastic average. This group, composed of girls with a 
3.5 average for their first semester or a 3.5 cumulative average for their 
first year, sponsors a lecture series on campus and offers the only free 
tutoring service for freshmen with the freshmen men's honorary. At 
their annual spring banquet, this honorary installs its new pledges. 

DIADEM 

Just a year old this past spring, Diadem honors outstanding junior 
women who have contributed to the University through scholarship 
and extracurricular activities. Sophomore women are tapped in the 
spring at the AWS Diadem Convocation. Diadem sponsors many events 
throughout the year, but their major services include ushering at school 
events and leading various groups which visit the University on tours. 

(10) 



PHI KAPPA PHI 

Dedicated to the maintenance of unity and democracy in education, 
this group is composed of seniors in the upper 10 St of their class and 
from all schools of the University. Each year at the spring banquet 
the graduating senior with the highest average receives a scholarship 
from this honorary. 



DIAMOND 

Sorority women with records of outstanding leadership and service 
to their sororities are eligible for membership in Diamond. Each sor- 
ority may have three active junior or senior members. Tapping is held 
each year at Harmony Hall and Interfraternity Sing. The members of 
this honorary serve as hostesses at various campus events. 



MORTAR BOARD 

Excellence is the requirement for membership in Mortar Board, the 
highest honor for a Maryland coed. Excellence in scholarship, leader- 
ship, and service is recognized when eligible juniors are tapped at the 
annual SGA Convention in the spring. Mortar Board sponsors the "Mum 
Sale" during Homecoming weekend, entertains freshmen women with 
a 3.0 average or above at a "Smarty Party," and sponsors a "Last Lec- 
ture" series. 



Mortar Board Mum Sale 





LOOKING AROUND 

Maryland's campus is 
big and its size is enough 
to scare any brave coed. 
But don't let it get you 
down. Since the campus 
is as big as it is, there 
is a lot which you can 
enjoy. Here's a quick 
look. 

Each semester the Na- 
tional Symphony p e r- 
forms on campus. Folk 
singing has become quite 
a craze on college cam- 
puses, and Maryland has 
taken to hootenannies. 
Anyone with an urge to 
sing or listen or with an 
instrument to pluck is 
welcome. On the more 
serious side, the music 
department periodically 
presents musical recitals 
which anyone may at- 
tend. The English department offers a series of lectures concerning 
various aspects of literature. These lectures, delivered by members of 
the department who are specialists in their field, prove to be stimulating 
and educational. 

You name it and the Student Union's probably got it! Five nights 
a week the Student Union features movies-old and new. A brand new 
bowling alley is waiting for student use. You can usually find one lec- 
ture in a series covering a wide range of topics. Finally, a record hop 
is held almost every week in the ballroom. 

The big events of the year are always eagerly awaited and you'll find 
them worth waiting for. The four class proms offer a night of escape 
into a land of paper decorations, soft lights, and multiple forms of enter- 
tainment. SGA cultural events entertain the student body periodically 
throughout the year. Ferrante and Teicher and Miriam Makeba were 
among the guest artists this past year. The Canadian Ballet will be one 
performing group this coming year. 

If you're ambitious and like to get into the thick of activities, Mary- 
land's the place to do it. Committee memberships on the SGA, AWS, 
or in your own class are open to everyone. Notices of vacancies in these 
positions are published in the Diamondback along with information 
about applications. Students with a flair for writing are eagerly wel- 
comed by the newspaper, yearbook, and magazine staffs. Religious 
groups are very active at Maryland and sponsor many group projects 
in addition to their regular weekly meetings. There is always some- 
thing to keep you busy but it's not always advertised, so if you don't 
see it, ask!

your leaving the residence before 6 a.m., you must secure per- 
mission from your head resident the day before you plan to leave. 

SPECIAL LATE LEAVES: Special permission to return to the resi- 
dence after your regular closing hours may be granted by your 
head resident for the purpose of attending cultural events, such

attending special campus events, such as the following: Aqua- 
liners Water Show, Band and University Orchestra concerts, Gym- 
kana Show, Harmony Hall, Interfraternity Sing, Modern Dance 
Concerts AWS Christmas Pageant, SGA cultural events, and 



(17) 



basketball games. After the function is over, you are given 20 
minutes to return to your residence. When you sign out for one 
of the above functions, you should indicate your closing hour as 
your expected return and write "special leave" above the expected 
return time. 

Everyone will be granted 2 a.m. permissions the Saturday 
night of Homecoming. Everyone attending will be granted 2 a.m. 
permissions the night of the Sophomore Prom, the night of the

organizations, such as University Theater and Diamondback, must 
be cleared through the Dean of Women's Office. Requests should 
be made at least one week in advance by the secretary or head

the Dean of Women's Office and requests should be made at least 
two weeks in advance.

Desserts on week nights may last until 8 p.m. 
(18) 



GUESTS: A friend may spend the night in your residence on Friday

commodations, these overnight guests should be of college age 
(i.e. — no younger than sixteen). There are no guest rooms in the 
residences for parents or other adults. Guests must be registered 
24 hours in advance. Show your guest how to sign in and out and

9:45 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday — 11:30 
p.m.; Friday and Saturday — 12:45 a.m. 

WEEKEND SIGN-OUT FOR DORM STUDENTS VISITING SORORITY 
HOUSES: Dormitory students visiting the sorority house for the 
weekend must sign out on their sign-out card in the dormitory 
and sign-in on a card in the sorority house. While at the sorority 
house, they must use this card for signing out at all times. 

Dormitory students may not spend the night at the sorority 
house during the week. 

FIRE DRILLS. Each residence is required to have a minimum of three 
fire drills a semester. When you hear the alarm, put on a long 
coat and a pair of shoes, leave your light on and your door open, 
and then walk quietly to your assigned exit. 

SUN-BATHING: Sun-bathing is allowed only in those areas so speci- 
fied by the Dean of Women's Office. You will be notified in the 
spring as to specific locations. 

Sun-bathing is not permitted on sorority property except in 
enclosed areas which have been approved by the Panhellenic ad- 
visor. It is not permissible to sun-bathe on porches overlooking 
the town streets. 

RESIDENCE DOORS: All doors except the front door must be kept 
locked after dark. They will remain locked until 7:30 a.m., the 
earliest one can enter the residence, and may not be used until

"Everything educates, and so?ue things educate 
jjH're tJuni others. Springtime educates, for ex- 
iimlAi. So do sunsets, ivinters. poems, the ocean, 
plays, hooks, sounds, sitiiations. people . . . '* 

Harold Tavlor 



The seer's crystal ball is not found in a dean's office, but I can hazard 
a fair guess without it and see an exciting few years ahead for each one 
of you! This guide book for freshmen, which has been worked on so 
enthusiastically by girls who are looking forward to your coming, should 
give you clues about the varied and wonderful life of a college woman. 
We hope that it will inspire you to make the best use of the experience 
of attending college which you so fortunately have been given. 

Even if you use every minute of your four years to the fullest ad- 
vantage, you will only have begun to learn all there is to know. The 
truly educated person is always eagerly looking for new insights, deeper 
knowledge, and more creative ideas; and he pursues knowledge as en- 
thusiastically at seventy as he does at seventeen. Don't waste precious 
time but take advantage of the wealth of learning which a large uni- 
versity can offer. Become acquainted with your instructors and pro- 
fessors, go to fireside chats and lectures, make time for concerts in 
Ritchie Coliseum and art shows in the Student Union and plays at the 
University Theater. The fabulous city of Washington is right on our 
doorstep with its museums, art galleries, and theaters. Our own state 
of Maryland is full of places which evoke the colorful history of colonial 
days.

Your life as a student will be independent and constantly full of 
choices. It is up to you whether you spend your free hours idly, 
or whether you go exploring, take a walk, play tennis, listen to music, 
argue about philosophy, help to plan an activity, or read something 
beautiful or controversial or provocative. Attempt to branch out into 
ways which will make life constantly more enriching and rewarding. 

I hope that your years in a university will help you to become in- 
creasingly aware of the value of honesty and integrity, kindness and 
tolerance, generosity and compassion. Enhance your life with good 
friendships, interesting activites, and intelligent studying. Every day 
may not be rosy, but courage, patience, and time will solve most prob- 
lems, and you will find that there are many places to go for help and 
advice. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you as the newest members 
of the University of Maryland and wish you every success. Good luck'
