I. Take full advantage of your orientation activities. 

II. Wear your name card and notice your classmates'. 
This is a good way to meet new people. 

III. Keep this book while you are at Maryland. It con- 
tains much handy information and no similar publication 
will ever be issued. 

IV. If you are a transfer student do not be misled by the 
terms "Freshman Handbook" and "Freshman Orientation." 
You will find both extremely helpful. 

V. Be loyal to Maryland— it's your university. Support 
its athletic teams, its people, policies and purposes. Live 
up to its ideals and show your spirit. 

VI. Conduct yourself in a manner which reflects credit 
on yourself, your family, your friends and your school. 

VII. Contribute to the university community to the best 
of your ability. You will get out only as much as you put in. 

VIII. Get as much as you can out of your four years at 
Maryland. Pay attention in class. This is your best oppor- 
tunity to gain an education. 

IX. Get to know your teachers. They are here to help you. 

X. Attend your classes regularly. 

XI. Take complete notes; they can help you considerably. 

XII. Participate in student activities— you can't obtain a 
complete education from courses alone. Take advantage of 
the numerous cultural and social opportunities on campus. 

XIII. You are in college now, so forget about your past 
glories in high school. Don't strtit around campus wearing 
emblems or sweaters of high school achievement but start 
now to win college recognition. 

XIV. Remember: Maryland will be what you make it— YOU 
are the University.

HISTORY AND TRADITIONS 




13 



HISTORY 

You may be wondering why we have three dates on 
the University seal. Our history dates back to 1807 when 
the fifth medical college in the United States was established 
in Baltimore. Several years after the Medical School began, 
a school for law and one for arts and sciences were estab- 
lished. The colleges following were Dentistry, Nursing, and 
Pharmacy, all in Baltimore. 

The first school established in College Park was the 
Maryland Agriculture College and Model Farm in 1856. 
This accounts for the second date on our seal. This school 
remained private till 1920 when the College Park and Bal- 
timore schools joined lo form the University of Maryland. 

From an enrollment of 731 at that time, the University 
has grown to approximately 48,000 students a year. Don't 
be overwhelmed by this number, for 10,000 of these stu- 
dents are on the College Park campus during the regular 
session. The remainder of the students are found in Balti- 
more schools, overseas, and in summer school. A third 
enrollment figure you may hear is 86,000 students which 
includes all part-time students as well. 

CAMPUS LANDMARKS 

Anyone who passes through College Park will find their 
attention drawn to the several landmarks of our campus. 
The most outstanding is the towering steeple of our Univer- 
sity Chapel. From its location high up on a hill overlooking 
the Baltimore-Washington Boulevard, the chapel's chimes 
can be heard every hour. Further through the campus is our 
Cole Activities Building which seats 14,700 people, and is 
truly an impressive sight. The new Theodore McKeldin 
Library situated on the mall is also one of our outstanding 
buildings. Familiar to the students is the tunnel near South 
Gate which carries tradition for all lovers passing through it. 
Another landmark is Fraternity Row which is composed of 
twelve fraternity and sorority Georgian styled houses. The 
"row" is seen by all passing through College Park. 

TESTUDO 

Another tradition on our campus is the University's 
mascot, perpetual guardian of the south-east gate of Byrd 
Stadium. He is Testudo, a five hundred pound bronze 
replica of Maryland's diamondback terrapin. 



BLACK AND GOLD 

The official school colors for the University of Mary- 
land are black and gold. It is interesting to note that 
these colors plus the red and white, our sports colors, were 
originally on coats of arms belonging to the first families 
settling in Maryland. The colors were then taken for our 
state flag. In accord, the University has acquired them. 




CAMPUS EVENTS 
Homecoming 

You will experience a special chill of excitement as 
you witness the opening kick-off of your first football season 
at Maryland. The gaiety, the tenseness, the cheers, the 
band, will all make you proud to be a "Terp", win or lose. 
School spirit rallies to its peak in the beginning of this 
season as exciting events are anticipated. Pep rallies, home 
games, an away weekend, and most of all Homecoming, 
highlight the fall months. 

As alumnae and collegians turn out for Homecoming, 
girls' dormitories and sororities contest for house decora- 
tion trophies, while the men's dormitories and fraternities 
flood the stadium with an array of floats. Climaxing this 
day are the crowning of Homecoming Queen, and a dance 
featuring a name band. So ends another season, but its 
memories will linger. 

15 



Campus Chest 

Campus Chest, a student committee overseeing campus 
charity contributions and allocating funds to various foreign, 
domestic, and student charities, is active many times a year 
raising money. The funds are received from such aclivities 
as the Sophomore Carnival, Donkey Basketball Game, Angel 
Flight Talent Show, Flying Follies, and the Alpha Phi 
Omega Ugly Man Contest. Each candidate in the contest 
receives one vote for each penny contributed to him. 

Campus Elections 

Maryland students are represented by two political par- 
ties. Old Line and Free State, which battle for campus offices 
each spring. Similar to national elections, each political 
party holds a nominating convention, and campaigning takes 
place through voting day. Students elect all class, AWS, Men's 
League and Student Government offices. 

Interfrafernit-y Sing 

Each spring Delta Delta Delta sorority sponsors the 
Interfraternity Sing, a highlight of Greek Week. It is held 
in Ritchie Coliseum, admission is free, and everyone is wel- 
come. Fraternities and sororities compete with each other 
and trophies are given to the top places in both divisions. 
Several honors are presented at this event which include the 
Morty Cohen Award, the Fraternity Man of the Year, the 
Hillock Award, and the tapping of Diamond and Kalegethos 
members. 

Harmony Half 

In the fall of every year. Phi Kappa Tau fraternity 
presents Harmony Hall. Various Greek organizations enter 
quartets and the judging is done by the Society for the 
Advancement of Barbership Singing. Besides receiving 
trophies, the top three winning male and female groups 
acquire points toward fraternity and sorority of the year 
a^vards. Tapping for Diamond and Kalegethos also takes 
place at this event. 

Kappa Alpha Minstrel 

A Cotton Picker's Minstrel is annually presented by 
Kappa Alpha fraternity. The show is complete with song, 
dance, grease paint and end men. As a production of the 
old South on stage, the Minstrel is one of Maryland's oldest 
traditions. 

16 



Christmas Events 

As the winter holiday season approaches, various campus 
religious groups make their preparations. The chapel bells 
ring out Christmas carols every hour as part of the season's 
festivity. Christmas parties, carroling and the chapel choir's 
presentation of the "Messiah" are traditional. Chanukah 
celebrations are also planned with Hillel featuring a social. 

Blood Drive 

Two days of the fall and spring are set aside for an 
Annaul Red Cross Blood Drive sponsored by AOPi Sorority 
and TEP Fraternity. Students give blood in Cole Activities 
Building, and refreshments are served afterwards. Trophies 
are awarded to the largest group donors. 

Spring Tapping 

Spring is a very busy time for honoring outstanding 
students. At the Interfraternity Sing, Diamond, the soror- 
ity honorary, and Kalegethos, the fraternity honorary, tap 
for leaders in their fields. Featured at the May Day Festival 
is Mortar Board's tapping of junior and senior women excel- 
ling in scholarship, campus service and leadership. Omicron 
Delta Kappa, and Phi Kappa Phi, the senior scholarship hon- 
orary, and other honoraries also tap during the spring 
months. 

Class Events 

Soon after you arrive on campus, you will be swept up 
in freshman elections. Later on in the year is Freshman 
Day which is packed full of entertainment and games. 

The sophomore class sponsors a carnival. Every resid- 
ence has an opportunity to enter a booth and the money 
raised is given to Campus Chest. Concessions and original 
shows spotlight this event. 

Juniors plan a donkey basketball game at which campus 
leaders compete against one another. This event also helps 
to raise money for Campus Chest. Each class has a dance, 
but one of the biggest each year is the Junior Prom. At 
this time Miss Maryland is crowned. In the Spring, junior 
women sponsor May Day. 

The senior class climaxes their college life with a Senior 
Prom and "Senior Class Presents", a variety show. 

17 



Organization Events 

Throughout the year, the campus is active with events 
sponsored by our many organizations. University Theater 
is especially busy giving several productions. Angel Flight 
presents a Fashion Show and Talent Show, the Modern 
Dance Club gives a concert, Hillel has a skit night, Gym- 
kana performs, and the Aqualiners perform a water ballet. 
Many dances are planned such as the Military Ball, Panhel- 
lenic Pledge Dance, the Interfraternity Ball, and the Inter- 
national Fiesta. Associated Women Students present a Bri- 
dal Fair, Campus Chest sponsors its charity drives and the 
many Check houses \ ic lor the trophies in musical competi- 
tion. 




May Day 

Twenty years ago our past Dean of Women, Adele Stamp, 
started the tradition of a May Day festival. Each year since 
then, May Day has honored the outstanding women on cam- 
pus. A queen is selected by junior women on the basis of 
her scholarship, citizenship, and service to the University. 
The pageant features a May pole dance done by outstanding 
sophomores and junior women, and the tapping of Mortar 
Board. It is an exciting and memorable event, especially 
for those honored. 



18 



Greek Week 

During May of each year fraternities and sororities unite 
for participation in Greek Week. This week is highlighted 
with Chariot Races, Bike Races, a Treasure Hunt, the Inter- 
fraternity Sing, a Dixieland Band Concert. For the past two 
years as a climax, the Interfraternity Council sponsored a 
boat ride on the Potomac, at which the King and Queen of 
Greeks were crowned. 



Dorm Events 

The AWS Dormitory Council and Men's League Resid- 
ent Men's Association help arrange an interesting program 
for the "Dorm" residents. Good citizenship is promoted, 
awards are presented to outstanding students, intramural 
teams are organized, and a social calendar is planned.

STUDENT SERVICES 




21 



BANKING 

Banking facilities for students and student organizations 
are provided by the Suburban Trust Company in College 
Park and the Citizens Bank of Maryland in Riverdale. 



BOOKS 

Your first step after registration will be to purchase your 
textbooks and necessary supplies. The Students' Supply 
Store, maintained by the University, is located in the base- 
ment of the Student Union. Here you may obtain new or 
used textbooks and supplies at a reasonable price. This 
store functions for your benefit, and any profits are placed 
in the student scholarship fund. There is also a local book- 
store in College Park, which provides used and new text- 
books; and the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity, which 
sells used textbooks consigned to them by students. 

The book stores have the approved list of the texts 
and the editions which are to be used in each course. Make 
sure that you check this list before purchasing your books. 
In order to avoid the sale of your books by other than you, 
and to assist in the return of mislaid books, write your 
name and address on the fly leaf of each book. After the 
first ten days it will not lower the re-sale value. 

A personal library which you may want to collect while 
in college may prove very useful in future years. 



COUNSELLING CENTER 

The University maintains the Counseling Center for 
the purpose of aiding the students in their college life. A 
$5.00 Test and Advisory fee paid during registration enables 
an undergraduate to receive assistance. 

A well-trained group of counseling psychologists staffs 
the Counseling Center. They are prepared to aid students 
with solving problems of social and emotional adjustment, 
making future plans, or correcting study difficulties. 

A Reading and Study Skills Laboratory to aid students 
in improving their reading and studying is part of the pro- 
gram operated by the Center. This program is given on a 
six week cycle with two cycles each semester. 

22 



DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS AND 
OFFICE OF REGISTRAR 

The first office with which you had any contact, as a 
new student, was the Admissions Office. The Admissions 
staff handles new admissions, transfer of credits, reinstate- 
ments or readmissions. This office is located in Room 118 
of the North Administration Building and is open daily. 

The Office of the Registrar is also located in the North 
Administration Building in Room 108. This office handles 
your official educational record at Maryland. This record 
includes the courses taken, the credits granted, and the 
grades earned. They are confidential and available to agen- 
cies outside of the University only with your permission. 
The Office handles computations of grade averages by class, 
Greek and dorm standings, and honors. 

Each male undergraduate student who is subject to draft 
regulations may request the Registrar to send his rank in 
his class to his local draft board each year. 




FOREIGN STUDENT ADVISER 

Dr. Furman Bridgers, the Foreign Student Adviser, 
lends a helping hand to all students from abroad in their 
adjustments to the University and to the community life. 
He begins his services the week before freshman orientation 
in a special program designed for foreign students. He as- 
sists them in registration problems, off campus housing, 
employment opportunities and social and cultural experi- 
ences at Maryland. 

The office of the Foreign Student Adviser is located in 
Room 222 of the North Administration Building. 

23 



I.D. CARD 

Look your best when you have your picture taken dur- 
ing registration. The student identification card will stay 
with you throughout your years at the U. of Md. The I. D. 
card has many functions. It identifies you for attendance 
at athletic events and student activities. The I. D. is 
required to check out library books, as well as to vote in 
student elections. 

If you lose your card, notify the Office of the Dean of 
Men immediately. They will make the arrangements to 
secure a new card, for which a fee will be charged. 

INFIRMARY 

The major function of the infirmary is to assist the stu- 
dent and the University in keeping up the standards of health 
by treating patients, thereby enabling you to make the most 
of your education. It is open to all students for the treat- 
ment of minor injuries and illnesses. All serious injuries

offices on campus are also authorized to receive them. They 
will in turn send them to the Campus Police. Make sure that 
you get a receipt for any article given to them. If you have 
lost articles, go to the Campus Police Oflice, and upon proper 
identification you may reclaim your possessions. After 90 days 
the unclaimed articles ^vill be disposed of. 

PLACEMENT SERVICE 

The University Placement Service has a program 
designed to offer job opportunities related to the student's 
present and future employment needs. This program 
includes the Career W^eek and the Summer Job Conference. 

The Placement Director or your department's faculty 
placement representative are ^villing to have conferences 
with sophomores and juniors to aid them in their future 
plans. 

The most assistance is received during your senior year. 
This program begins with a direct job getting campaign 
through the use of the Placement Library, and then some 
300 company visitors are brought on campus to recruit grad- 
uates. Those who do not receive positions in this manner 
register with the Service and any job opportunities are di- 
rected to them. 

Many of the activities are conducted by student com- 
mittees headed by Mr. I.ance Billingsley. Mr. Lewis Knebel 
is the Director of the Placement Service, and the office is 
located in Room 225 of the North Administration Buildinsr.

SCHOLARSHIP AND LOAN FUND 

In order to obtain a scholarship or a loan you must 
maintain a certain average and show financial need. The 
National Education Loan Program as well as many other 
loans and scholarships are available to Maryland students. 
Further information and application forms may be found 
in Room 209 of the North Administration Building. 

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT 

The University tries to assist its students in supple- 
menting the cost of edtication by helping them find part- 
time employment. 

Workships, part-time employment on campus and part- 
time employment off campus are the three general types of 
sttident part-time employment. Workships require a pre- 
scribed amount of "ivork in return for room and board, board, 
or room. Part-time ^vork starts the sttident at 75 cents an hotn^ 
with an increase in pay with increased experience. These jobs 
are in offices, labs, the library, the Student Union, the Dairy, 
Salesroom, the experimental farm, etc. If you are a person 
with special skills; such as stenographic, drafting, and so on, 
you are paid a higher Avage. 

Jobs that continue throtighotu the year and temporary 
w^ork, as at registration, commencement, and special events, 
are some more of the available part-time jobs. Off-camptts 
jobs in local btisiness establishments are also obtainable by 
students. A file of off-camptis jobs is kept in the Student 
Employment Office. 

Male students interested in employment should apply 
at the Student Employment Office, which is located in the 
Office of the Dean of Men, 222 of the North Administra- 
tion Building. Women students seeking workships and baby 
sitting positions should apply at the Office of the Dean of 
Women in Room 210 of the same building. 

STUDENT UNION 

The Student Union under the direction of Mr. William 
Hoff offers many services to the students. The Students' 
Book Store and the Post Ofiice have already been mentioned. 
In addition to these, it provides a Check Cashing Service, 
a student mimeograph and poster service, a refreshment cat- 
ering, a hobby skills program and a weekly newsletter con- 
cerning group and club activities.

SOCIAL ETIQUETTE 




29 



THE CLASSROOM AND YOU 

You want your instructor to know you are in class to 
learn, and that you have respect for him or her as a teacher 
and as a human being. How do you get this across? You 
can't tell him in words, but yoti can show him in a dozen 
ways. 

Attitude: You can look alert, interested, cheerful and as 
if you cared about what was going on. You can't afford to 
sleep in class and you can't afford to slotich in your chair 
as if you were asleep. 

Appearance: You can be neat and clean both as to your 
person and clothes. This doesn't mean that you have to wear 
dress-up clothes. It does mean that you are scrubbed, even 
if you have just come from a greasy lab job, and that your 
clothes are clean and casual, not soiled and sloppy. It's no 
compliment to any instructor to appear otherwise and you 
will have to expect to be judged according to your just 
desserts on this score. 

Attention: Attention again implies alertness to what the in- 
structor is presenting and keeping your mind on what he 
is saying. Your face ^vill sho^v it if your mind is far away. And 
you can't pay attention to the instructor and study some other 
subject, write letters or knit. 

Courtesy: You wouldn't talk when someone else is talking 
in ordinary conversation. The same rule holds in the 
classroom. Remember too that a whisper carries and that you 
probably can be heard both by the instructor and your 
classmates even -when you don't intend to be. 
Tardiness: This brings up the subject of tardiness. You 
know \\o^v you feel about anyone who is late to an appointment 
with you. Don't be late if you can possibly avoid it. But if 
you are late, slip into class as qtiietly as yoti can. Drop 
down into the first vacant seat. Avoid disturbing the whole 
class by walking across in front of the instructor and the 
class to get to your own seat. Apologize to the instructor after 
class for being tardy and make sure then that he knows where 
you sat so you won't be counted absent. 

Size up the situation: You can judge the atmosphere of the 
class. In most cases you will be encouraged to ask questions, if 
you don't understand, or to participate in discussion. This 
will help you learn. Usually you will need to be recognized 
by the instructor before speaking. Remember that other 
students need to participate too, so don't monopolize the 
time. Think through your question before you raise it. A 

30 



good question helps the ^vhole class. A poor one wastes the 
time of many people. As long as you are attending class, don't 
leave before it is over. The instructor, not the bell, dismisses 
class. Don't put on your coat and gather up your books 
until you are dismissed— you can't afford to look too eager 
to leave. 

Individual Interview. In an indi\i(lual inter\ie\s' \vith your 
instructor, your academic adviser, the head of your school 
or any staff member, you stand out as a person even more 
than you do in class. The staff member needs to feel your 
respect for him as a person as much as you need to feel 
welcome and comfortable with him. Remember that in 
his office the staff member calls the time. You need to be 
alert and responsive to e\ery cue, so you'll know what the 
tune is. As host in his own office the staff member ivill invite 
you to sit do^vn and indicate where. ^Vait to be invited. Don't 
overstay your -^velcome. The staff member might enjoy visit- 
ing indefinitely with you, but he probably is operating on 
a tight schedule. If you are alert vou'U catch a sign of some 
kind that says clearly that the interview needs to be brought 
to a close. Do thank the staff member for his time and help— 
and mean it when you say it. 

There is one important way that "we can return these 
favors and that is to make a mental note of each of our pro- 
fessor's correct titles and use them. There is nothing more 
insulting than to call a Doctor, Mister. Deans justly expect 
the students to rise ^vhen they enter the room. 

MARYLAND ETIQUETTE 

Not a great deal can be said that ^vill mean much to 
you until you ha\e rubbed elbows with other students and 
have discovered the college way of life. A few hints, though, 
may help you to fit easily and comfortably into the Univer- 
sity scene. 

First of all. Maryland is a friendly place and you can 
do your bit in making it so. Dont stand too much on 
ceremony as far as making friends is concerned. Others, 
more shy than you, will appreciate your taking the initiative 
in speaking and being friendly. Courtesy and thoughtfulness 
in the use of common facilities, ^vhether in yoiu^ residence 
or on campus, always hel{) to make you better liked by others. 
Respecting your fellow student's needs for cjuiet while 
studying indicates a thoughtfid person rather than a selfish 
one. 



Nothing distracts more from a girl's appearance than 
to see her walking across campus smoking a cigarette. Besides 
it is against the rules. 

Speaking of walking across campus, you'll be doing quite 
a bit of that and you'll be looking for shortcuts. However, 
try not to trample the grass too much. The grounds are 
one of the first things that impress you as you drive through 
campus, so try to keep them in relatively good condition. 

You boys should make a mental note of the fact that 
it's a good idea to be on your best behavior ^vhen you are 
visiting in a girls' dorm or sorority house. Remember that 
smoking is prohibited in the lobby of the dorms. 




SAt\JKI>AY| 




Dress 

Never lose any sleep over the right clothes to wear. For 
women, a wardrobe of straight skirts, sweaters, blouses, sheath 
dresses and a few cocktail dresses will fulfill the purpose. A 
short walking coat is best for classes. 

One of the biggest events last year was the adoption of 
the rule concerning bermudas. No women are permitted 
to wear them on Saturday except in University buildings. 
They may be worn to the bookstore in the Student Union. Of 
course, men are allowed to wear them on weekdays also. 

32 



It is very important that coeds don't violate this rule, since 
it could easily be ^\•ithdra^^■n. 

Men shotild keep in mind that this isn't a "cow college," 
so dungarees won't do. We like to see collegiate khakis, wool 
slacks, and perhaps even a coat and tie which do a lot to 
improve classroom atmosphere. Of course, if you're going 
to all this trouble, it woidd be a little silly to ruin it by 
slouching in your chair or casually draping your legs over 
the chair in front. 

Recreation 

Like many Maryland students, you "^vill probably want to 
take time out from studying to go out for a good time. 

On campus, the Student Union, opening at 7 a.m. and 
closing at 10 p.m., is always a good bet. On Fridays. Saturdays 
and Sunday some top rate movies are featured at student 
prices. For TV fans the televisions, incltiding a colored one, 
are available. Also, the Hi-Fi and Stereo rooms are ustially 
open. For anyone interested in a little more strenuous exer- 
cise, the billiard room is in the basement. 

If you feel the need for nourishment, the lunch room 
is open from 8 to 4 o'clock. This is a real good place to 
socialize and show off yotir dancing talent. The tables can 
be pushed back at 4 p.m. The jtikebox will most likely be 
busy. 

If the weather permits, the tennis cotirts. are open. One 
is located between Cole Activities Building and B parking 
lot and the other behind Preinkert Fieldhotise. If you're 
a s^s'imming enthusiast, there is coed swimming at Cole 
Activities Building. On Wednesday night, the Preinkert 
pool is open to ^vomen. The Preinkert tennis courts are open 
only to women during the day, but on nights and ^veekends 
it is available for the men also. 

A short walk to the Baltimore Boulevard, and yoti can 
try your skill at boAvling. For those lucky enough to have 
a car, you can visit the Hyattsville moviehouse or one of the 
local theaters. 

Miniature Golf is always a lot of fun and Green Meadows 
has a popular course. For more experienced golfers. Maryland 
Golf Coinse and Maryland Dri\ ing Range are behind the 
stadium. 

In addition to the athletic recreational activities in and 
around College Park, several campus organizations, classes, 
etc. provide recreational e\cnings ihroiighoiu ilic vear. 



33 



DINING HALL 

Those of you who live in the dormitories must have 
your meals at the University Dining Hall, where meals are 
served at reasonable cost. Other students may make arrange- 
ments to board by the semester at the Dining Hall. If you 
live off-campus, it is possible to get yotu' linich at the Univer- 
sity cafeteria located on the ground floor of the Dining Hall. 



Rules and Regulafions 

Dress: All students should be properly dressed to come 
into the Dining Hall, certain rules must be followed and 
certain standards of behavior must be maintained. All 
students are expected not to wear shorts, halters, bermudas, 
slacks, and blue jeans. No sports clothes covered by rain 
coats are to be worn in the Dining Hall. Men should wear 
coats and ties to Sunday dinner. 

Food: Under no circumstances should any food or any 
other property of the Dining Hall be taken out. 

Meal cards: It is required that -^vhenever a stipervisor or 
other official of the Dining Hall requests your Dining Hall 
card, it must be shown to him at once. Your Dining Hall 
card is not transferable. Do not lend your card to anyone for 
any reason. Improper use of the Dining Hall card makes 
a student liable to disciplinary action. Any Dining Hall 
card lost or misplaced must be reported to the supervisor 
on duty immediately. 

Behavior: It is improper, inconsiderate, and very con- 
fusing to break into line before your proper turn.

HOUSING 




35 



DORMITORIES 

Your welcome to the University of Maryland wouldn't 
be complete without a quick look at your ne^v campus home. 
Your next few short years Av^ill revolve around whether 
your dormitory home, a fraternity or sorority house, or, if you 
are a commuter, your campus gathering spots. 

In one of the Georgian style btiildings found sprinkled 
around the campus, you will find your dormitory home. Here 
you ^vill hang yotir hat, your clothes, the picture of your 
one-and-only, your calendar, or a program from the latest 
University Theater production. Here you will study, sleep, 
laugh, cry, sing, and hold "bull sessions." 

But along with studying in the dorm, you will participate 
in many special social functions. Several times each year, 
the girls' and boys' dorms are the scenes of evening desserts. 
Members of each of the dormitories participating gather in 
the recreation rooms of a dorm for t^vo hoins of light re- 
freshments and dancing . . . just socializing in general. 

The rec room of the girls' dorms and some of the boys' 
dorms supplies you with cokes to keep you awake at night, 
candy and cookies for late snacks, television for study breaks, 
telephones, a ping-pong table for evening enjoyment, and a 
kitchen where you can create your own delicacies. 

Yotir room will include single beds, dressers, a desk, 
closets, chairs, and lamps. Yotir ingenuity will create a 
room that reflects your own personality. Put personal touches 
into it by choosing ctntains, bedspreads, rugs, dresser 
scarfs that suit your tastes . . . and don't forget a bulletin 
board for your collectors' items. An extra table, bookcase, 
and lamp adds warmth to the room; girls might want to 
bring a hair dryer, and iron (for use in the laundry room) , 
shoe racks, a radio, clock, but no hotplates please! 



GREEK RESIDENCES 

After spending a year "on the hill," you may find your 
interests turning toward a certain fraternity or sorority. You 
will find life in a Greek House diversified and interesting. 

Fraternity row, across Route 1 from the main campus, 
houses eight fraternities and five sororities; College Avenue, 
Princeton Avenue, Norwich Road, Knox Road, serve as ad- 
dresses for the remaining Greek homes. 

36 



Living with a group of people your own age, people 
who become as close as your sisters in a sorority or brothers 
in a fraternity, creates an intimate and homelike atmosphere. 
Your house provides many advantages: meals served in a 
family style, rugs covering the floors, and comfortable chairs 
ready for your comfort. 

Sleeping accommodations vary from house to house. 
You may have a room equipped with a desk, chest and bed, or 
you may have a room which contains only desks, chests, 
bookcases, and your personal belongings. In this latter 
situation, the dormitory system is used; on the third floor, one 
huge room contains nothing but beds. This is convenient 
when you want nothing but peace and quiet when you retire. 

On Friday and Saturday nights, fraternity houses are 
the scenes of gala parties . . . pajama parties, South Sea 
Island parties, Parisian parties, and impromptu parties. 

Although living in a Greek house is a change from dormi- 
tory life, you will find it an unusual and worthwhile experi- 
ence. 



DAYDODGERS 

Our campus daydodgers have not been left out of the 
hustle and bustle of campus living. The Student Union is the 
campus home of the many, many students w^ho daily make 
their way to the Maryland grounds for classes. Here these 
people will find many conveniences set vip for their comfort: a 
regular cafeteria provides breakfast and lunch or after class 
snacks; the lounge of the SU is equipped with comfortable 
chairs, a color television set, and a host of students with whom 
you will become well acquainted in the next few years. The 
Student Union also houses a room containing a piano, a 
room containing art works which are displayed throughout 
the year, and rooms in which you can study. 

Many commuters spend some of their study time in the 
new McKeldin Library. This library supplies a wealth of 
knowledge, large rooms in which to study, and small cubicles 
where you can study in solitude if you prefer. 

Whether you live in a dormitory on campus, a Greek 
house in College Park, or at home, enjoying only your daytime 
hours at the University of Maryland, your life will be as 
pleasant as you make it. Study hard, but have fun. 

37 



CAMPUS PHONES 

The various halls in the dorms contain phones with 
a certain number extension. If you live in the dorms and 
wish to contact someone whose extension you know, ask 
the operator for the number of the extension you want. To 
contact the University extensions from off campus, dial 
WArfield 7-3800, ask for the section of the campus you want, 
such as Womens' Dorms, Mens' Dorms, Administration 
Office, etc., then ask for the number of the extension you 
wish to contact. 

The foUo^ving are extension numbers of dormitory main

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION 

The Student Government Association is fashioned after 
our national government having all three branches and a 
similar division of powers. There are fourteen SGA Cabinet 
officers. These officers are elected each spring semester. The 
Cabinet acts on bills originating in the legislature much in 
the same way as does the President of the United States. Bills 
can be vetoed, pocketed, passed, or amended. Of course the 
Cabinet may originate bills which then go to the legislature. 

The legislature is composed of nine seniors, eight juniors, 
seven sophomores, six freshmen and the Vice-President of 
SGA, who acts as Speaker. At their first meeting they begin to 
work on motions originating from the floor and on recom- 
mendations sent to them by their committees. Both the legis- 
lature and the executive council meet on Tuesday in the 
Student Union Building. The legislature meets at 3:00 p.m.; 
whereas, the Council meets at 7:00 p.m. Visitors are always 
welcome and may present petitions or speeches from the floor. 

The SGA committees function apart from the Executive 
Council but, nevertheless, are responsible to it; and, must 
make reports about each respective activity while it is 
in the planning stage. What committees are there? 
Finance Committee: This group plans the yearly budget from 
the twelve dollar student activity fee paid to the University 
during registration. The Finance Committee appropriates 
funds for every organization that is recognized as a student 
activity by the Faculty Committee on Student Life and 
Activities. Much of the financial work presented on the floor 
of the legislature is previewed by this committee. The SGA 
Treasurer is automatically chairman of the Finance Com- 
mittee. 

Election Board: This committee is in charge of all elections 
on campus. It controls the balloting at the polls, handles the 
complaints registered against illegal practices of candidates, 
and the IBM counting of ballots. 

Homecoming:This large committee plans the judging of 
house and float decorations during the fall Homecoming 
weekend. It also administers the selection of the Homecoming 
Queen and arranges the outside entertainment for the Home- 
coming Dance. 

Calendar: Each spring the Student Government Association, 
in cooperation with the Office of the Dean of Women, com- 
piles a master calendar from which a semester calendar is 
printed for student distribution. 

42 



Campus Chest: In the spring, this committee sponsors projects 
to raise money for charity organizations. 
Culture: This group organizes the National Symphony con- 
certs and a series of lighter choral and orchestral performances. 
Freshman Orientation Board: This organization will guide 
you through assemblies, dances and orientation regulations 
during your first week on campus. 

Who's Who: This committee selects outstanding senior men 
and women, who are qualified to have their names appear 
in the national manual. Who's Who, which recognizes col- 
lege leaders. 

Although applications may be made at almost any time 
throughout the year, certain deadlines are imposed. Re- 
minders that applications are being accepted and notifications 
of their deadlines appear in the Diamondback. 

The judicial branch of SGA is composed of a Central 
Student Court and minor courts. The six justices and the 
Chief Justice are selected from Mortar Board and Omicron 
Delta Kappa members or nominees. These justices have 
jurisdiction over appealed cases and all disciplinary cases 
recommended to it. The decision of the court is always final 
with no right to appeal. 

The well-worded preamble to the new SGA constitution 
points to the goal toward which the government is directed: 
"We, the students of the University of Maryland, in order 
to encourage democratic thotight and action, offer training 
in the application of our cherished principles of self-govern- 
ment, secure to ourselves the right to discuss and formulate 
our own policies, demonstrate our concern for and promote 
the interest of our alma mater, and provide the fullest de,2^ree 
of self-government possible under the jurisdiction of the Uni- 
versity's administrative personnel and governing bodies and 
under the constitution and laws of the State of Maryland and 
the United States of America, do hereby ordain and establish, 
under God, this Constitution to be the fundamental law gov- 
erning ourselves and our successors, now and hereafter, so long 
as it shall stand the test of time and respond to our need for 
self-government. 

ASSOCIATED WOMEN STUDENTS 

Every woman student of the University of Maryland is a 
member of AWS. Since it is the governing body of all women 
on this campus, AWS has the responsibility of setting up 
and enforcing standards of conduct and dormitory regula- 

43 



tions. It sponsors cultural, social, and various other women's 
activities on campus. Some AWS programs are: 
Executive Council: The AWS Executive Council is, of 
course, very important. It is composed of a President, 1st and 
2nd Vice-Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, representatives 
from each class council, and committee chairmen who make 
up the governing policy. This policy deals with all phases 
of dormitory and sorority living, sets up women's regulations, 
academic and social standards. 

Big Sister Program: Every year as the new students arrive on 
campus they are welcomed into their new residences by a 
"Big Sister." The big sister purpose is to help all new dorm 
residents get acquainted with each other so they can feel 
right at home. Daydodgers have big sisters also. 
Bridal Fair: This function is held every spring in the Armory. 
There are fashions from the bridal goAvn to the honeymoon 
trousseau and displays of everything a new bride will need 
in her home. 

Orphan's Party: This program is co-sponsored by Panhel. A 
day of entertainment and toys for orphans creates a pleasur- 
able atmosphere. 

Christmas Pageant: Near Christmas time a re-creation of the 
Nativity scene on the Chapel steps sets a joyful Christmas 
mood over the entire campus. 

Women's Employment Conference: This is a tea held every 
year for those who are seeking part-time or full-time employ- 
ment. It gives women students the opportunity to talk with 
representatives from various companies. 
Public Relations: This new committee is set up to recognize 
applications for AWS committees, to send congratulatory 
notes, and to get across AWS policies. 
Social Committees: This is bound to be a pleasurable com- 
mittee. It works with the Men's League to set up various 
social events, such as dances and buffets. 

There is a committee for practically every interest ran- 
ging from art to leadership and culture. It is easy to join, 
just fill out an application! 

MEN'S LEAGUE 

"We, the male students of the University of Maryland, 
in order to promote the educational, cultural, social, and 
athletic welfare and interest of the men of the University, 
and to offer the men of the University a chance to perpetuate 
the mutual benefits derived from college life and a chance 

44 



to present their problems and to assist in their solution, do 
hereby establish this constitution of the Men's League of 
the University of Maryland." 

So reads the preamble to the Men's League Constitution. 
Though it sounds good, the problem is how to fulfill the 
objectives which we have chosen, and how to achieve the 
goals we have set before us. What is educational, cultural, 
social and athletic welfare; and what are the mutual benefits 
and problems? The first consideration to make is that you, 
and each undergraduate male student here at Maryland, 
is a member of the Men's League. 

Each year the Men's League sponsors a number of 
events for the benefit of the male student body. Summer Job 
Forums, No Shave Week, and Freshmen Information Assem- 
blies are a few of the annual programs of the Men's League. 
The Resident Men's Association also comes under the Men's 
League. To handle the problems that such undertakings 
create, the Student Government has seen fit to establish the 
Men's Executive Council. 

The Executive Council meets weekly to discuss and 
plan the programs to be presented. The representatives to 
the Executive Council are elected by the student body-at-large 
in the annual elections. You, the male student, select these 
representatives, or you may even aspire to be one. Sugges- 
tions from the Interfraternity Council; the Resident Men's 
Association; the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior 
classes; the Student Government Association; Greeks and 
independents; residents and commuters are brought to the 
attention of the Executive Council. Any action relevant 
to the undergraduate male student on such committees as 
Campus Improvements, Student Life and Dining Hall Im- 
provements. For further interests of the students, the Men's 
League also has established the Student Court which is 
subordinate to the Central Student Court. 

The Men's League Student Court review, regulates and 
exerts jurisdiction concerning violations of men's rules as set 
forth by the Student Government Constitution or the Admin- 
istration. Instances of violations may be referred directly to 
the Men's League Student Association. The Men's League 
Student Court passes its findings and recommendations on 
to the Administration and acts as the enforcement body for 
the action taken. 

In the spring semester of every year, the Men's League 
holds its Leadership Banquet. At this time, awards and 



45 



recognitions are given to the outstanding male students and 
teachers. 

The Men's League is proud to boast that this year has 
seen the marked improvement in the quantity, quality and 
diversity of the Dining Hall menu, and that the Men's League 
was not without influence in the efforts to accomplish this 
program. Next year further improvements are planned, and 
the Men's League will continue to strive toward the accomp- 
lishment of these goals. 

The Job Conferences, No Shave Week and Freshmen 
Assemblies will be held next year as they have in the past. Also 
proposed are many new programs. 

The Men's League is a part of the Student Government 
Association, and you are encouraged to take part in your 
student government. Student government was created and 
acts in your interest and for your benefit, and that partici- 
pation which you give it will help it realize its goals. Help 
us to help you help us all!

CULTURE AND ENTERTAINMENT 

To give us the badly needed study breaks during this 
week, there is a variety of entertainment that caters to 
Maryland students. Why, without parties and that long 
awaited Saturday night date, there would be no color in 
each week. But naturally these fun fests and movie dates 
will become "old stufF' to you and you will no doubt find 
yourself hunting every corner for something "new" to see 
and do. Actually you will have little trouble, as many 
campus organizations, as well as outside entertainers, show 
us their talents in the course of the year. 

The SGA Cultural Committee is always available on 
the spot to arrange performances for students by artists out- 
side the University. 

The four National Symphony concerts sponsored by the 
Student Government are big events on our calendars. As a 
student you get all tickets free, all yoti need is your Student 
Activities Card, to present at the door. Their program 
usually includes four different types of entertainment; namely, 
piano, opera, jazz and ballet. 

You will find that Ritchie Coliseum is the scene of 
many shows you will not want to miss. Phi Kappa Tau 
fraternity's Harmony Hall features Barber Shop quartet 
singing competition. Tri-Delta sorority sponsors the Inter- 
fraternity Si)}g which is competition between many campus 
fraternities and sororities. These events are free and on 
week nights. 

The now famous Flying Follies cannot be missed. This 
organization grew out of an overseas trip made by twenty- 
eight students to Scotland, Iceland, the Azores, and Bermuda 
during Christmas of '58. After returning from the trip, the 
group decided to become a permanent organization to provide 
entertainment for the camptis and commimity. Under their 
"new regime," Flying Follies is a school function that first 
owes shoAvs to the campus before it makes engagements 
throughout the east. Last year they performed during Fresh- 
men Orientation, Newcomer's Club meetings, country club 
dinners and hospital parties. The University Theater is 
the setting for the two hour Flying Follies show on campus. 

Tryouts for Flying Follies come in mid-October. Audi- 
tions are held for performers and intervie^vs are given to 
technical Avorkers. A Revieu- Board of faculty members, 
student members and three talent chairmen rate the per- 

48 



former on stage presence, personality, potential talent, and 
audience appeal. Since there is a good chance that the group 
will travel abroad, put your talents to use and try out. 
Who knows, you may become a star! 

The longer you are here the more you Avill see that ^ve 
are a rather musical campus. You ^vill enjoy the concerts 
given by the band in Ritchie Coliseum. Choral works take 
the spotlight, particularly at Christmas and Easter when the 
Chapel Choir gives the appropriate portion of Handel's 
"Messiah" for the holidays. These performances usually take 
place in Memorial Chapel on the Sunday before classes let 
out. Along the same line are the Men's Glee Club and the 
Womens CJiorus productions. The annual "Ceremony of 
Carols" by the Women's Chorus, following the AWS Christ- 
mas pageant, adds a seasonal glow to the campus. 

Now if you are intellectually minded or show an interest 
in world affairs, you will definitely want to attend some 
of the Coffee Hours sponsored by the Associated W^omen 
Students held in the Student Union on Tuesday and Thurs- 
day afternoons. Discussions led by faculty members include 
world, national, and local topics which are of partictdar 
interest to college sttidenls. Make a note to be in the Student 
Union and drop in on one of these groups. 

Of all the events held during the year you will find 
that there is one to which everyone is urging you to attend. 
This is the Convocation or Convocations, depending on how 
many speakers are available. Classes are called and masses 
of students swarm to hear the hour long program. 

The Kapjju Alpha Minstrel adds a touch of humor to 
each school year. This anntial event is a highlight in the 
spring semester. Tickets are sold a week in advance at the 
Central Atiditorium box office. 

Dtiring the year, the art department sponsors several ex- 
liibits in the Student Union. You will probably be astonished 
when you see the talent that some Maryland students possess. 

If you are athletically inclined, you will definitely enjoy 
the famous Gymkana Troup shows, lliey are always held in 
the spring semester just ^vhen tiiat lag before Easter break 
begins to sho\v. Cole P^ield House is the setting and ticket 
books are the admission. 

Also along the athletic line is the /hjiuiliiirrs' ]]'afer Shozv 
held in the men's pool in the Field House about the same 
time of year. Tickets for this show are available at the door. 



49 



You will not want to miss either of these shows as they pro- 
vide an enjoyable bit of entertainment. 

University Theater is the dramatic group on campus. 
Each year the U.T. presents four major productions which 
usually include a contemporary play, a Greek tragedy, an 
experimental play and a mtisical. The theater is always 
alive with excitement and will begin its active year by 
having a try-out September 21st. The group has planned a 
very full schedide right up to the end of the season on May 7. 




Everyone is welcome and needed at U.T. To be eligible 
for membership, a student is required to work three pro- 
ductions and ten hours in the w^orkshop which will count 
as one of the major productions. All parts of every play are 
open to everyone and besides actors, make-up artists, costume 
committees, props, lighting, publicity, box office, and house 
committees are needed to produce a good show. No experi- 
ence in the theater is necessary to work in any capacity on the 
productions.

Why is ROTC required? 

The tmiversity of Maryland is a federal land-grant 
institution, and for this reason, ROTC is required for all 
male students for two years, just as at all other federal land- 
grant institutions. The two years of ROTC are also a pre- 
requisite to graduation, unless the student is a veteran of 
the armed forces. 

Whaf is ROTC? 

The ROTC— Reserved Officers Training Corps— program 
is divided into two parts: the basic courses taken during the 
freshman and sophomore years, and the advanced courses 
which may be elected durins: the junior and senior years. 

What is Advanced ROTC? 

To qualify for the advanced ROTC program, cadets 
are carefully screened during their first two years. Those 
men who choose to fulfill their military obligations through

67 



VARSITY ATHLETICS 

Now that you have been introduced to the athletic 
program here at the University, we will take you to the 
sports individually. This should help you to follow your 
favorite sport more closely by knowing who to look for and 
where to find them. 

Football 

Calling signals for the gridmen this fall are Richie 
Novak and the surprise man of '59, Dale Betty. Dwayne 
Fletcher and Ev Cloud are the key men in the halfback 
slot. Filling the fullback position is Pat Drass. 

Providing the main strength in the middle of the Terp 
line are Leroy Dietrich at center, Joe Hrezo and Pete Boinis 
at guard, and Tom Sankavick at tackle. Completing the 
lineup are Vinny Scott and Gary Collins, considered by many 
the best end on the east coast, in the end slots. 

Soccer 

Coach Doyle Royal's championship soccer team again 
takes the field this fall with a stellar lineup. Returning to 
spark the team are hustlers Juan Carlos Martin, Ian Forrest, 
Cliff Krug, and Dick Romine, among others. Also providing 
the backbone of the Terps will be those freshmen coming 
up from the spectacular frosh team of last year. 

Basketball 

Heading Coach Bud Millikan's ball-bouncers are Paul 
Jelus, star forward of last year's team, Ted Marshall, who will 
fill the position of center, and Bruce Kelleher. Kelleher and 
Jelus are probably the best combination on the east coast. 
Feeding the varsity from the frosh team this year will be 
Bob Eicher and Bill Statiulatis, prominent members of the 
'59-'60 frosh team. 

Swimming 

The ACC championship swimming team will again be 
led this winter by Coach Bill Campbell. Head men on 
this year's squad will be Al Marmelstein, Nick Paleologis, 
and Mike Maeth. 

68 



Wresfling 

Sully Krouse's wrangling wrasslers will again attempt to 
capture the ACC title-a title which they have held ever 
since they entered the conference. Leading the matmen this 
year will be Dick Baker, Hank Poniatowski, undefeated ACC 
champ, Gene Kerin, and Ed Cliatt. 

Track 

Guiding the indoor and outdoor track men is Coach Jim 
Kehow. Providing the manpower will be Frank Colavita, 
Nick Kovalikides, Don Whitaker, Tom Glass, and Dick 
and Gene Estes. 

Lacrosse 

Leading a group of all-star players for the '61 season 
will be Jack Faber and Al Heagy, the coaches of the la- 
crosse team. At attack will be Charlie Horton and Jim 
Martone; midfield, Bob Lemken and Buddy Beardmore; at 
defense, Dick Scarbath and Walt Malinowski; and tending 
goal, Bill Chambers. Adding to this powerful team will be 
members of last year's undefeated frcshinan lacrosse team. 

Baseball 

As the Terp diamondmen take the field next spring, 
such veterans as George Krouse and Phil Rogers will lead 
the team. Others returning to the team will be Bruce 
Corbin, Jack Rogers, and Larry Kupper. 

Tennis 

Once again Coach Doyle Royal leads the Terps, this 
time as the coach of the tennis team. Backing him next 
spring will be Chuck Abelson, Bob Kight, Al Citrenbaum, 
and John Nogrady. Also providing the manpo\ver will be 
members of last year's frosh team. 

Golf 

As Maryland swings into spring, the golf team ^vill swing 
into action behind the coaching of Frank Cronin. Backing 
the coach will be Paul Quinn and Tom Bartolec, among 
others.

RULES AND REGULATIONS 




70 



GENERAL REGULATIONS 

It has been said that all those who don't get married 
by the time they graduate from high school go to college— and 
there they get four more years to try. Most of the men on 
campus are working for a BA or a BS degree, but it often 
appears (at least to the men) that the coeds are mostly 
after their MRS degree. 

While all play and no work will get you a fast ticket 
out of the University, the reverse of this isn't good either. 
Even the men agree that they can study better if they have 
a weekend date to look forward to. 




Boy Visits Girl 

Since all of the girls who live on campus are either in a 
dorm or a sorority house, the University has formulated some 
rules designed to keep these places from being mad houses 
every day of the week. 

Men can visit the girls' dorm from noon until 10 p.m. 
every day but Monday, when they must leave by 9:45 p.m. 
In addition, on Friday and Saturday the hours are extended 
until 12:45 a.m.; and on Sunday they are 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. 

Boys should call for their girls in the dorm lobby, and 



71 



they are not to wander into the rest of the building unless 
escorted by one of the residents. No smoking is allowed in 
the lobby. 

The sororities have the same hours on Friday and Satur- 
day, but they are a good deal more restrictive the rest of the 
week. Sundays are open from I ():()() a.m. uniil 1 ():■')() p.m. 
Varying Avith each house, one da) men may call from 2 p.m. 
until 10 p.m., another from 2 p.m. until (S p.m.. one day from 
2 p.m. initil dinner, and one day is closed. 

Men calling for dates at other times may wait for their 
dates in the reception hall for five minutes at the discretion 
of the housemother. 

Girl Visits Boy 

Men's dorms are a no-woman's land, for girls are not 
permitted to enter them except for registered parties. Rela- 
tives visiting boys should call at the dorm office in Annapolis 
Hall or at the housemother's apartment. 

Fraternity members must have the permission of the 
housemother before bringing a girl into the house. Regular 
hours for women visitors are 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Fridays, 
1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays, and 2:30 to 7 p.m. Sundays. Reg- 
istered parties are to be over by 12:30 a.m. both Friday 
and Saturday nights. 

MOTOR TRAFFIC REGULATIONS 

Many students find it necessary to drive on campus, and 
therefore the Campus Police Force has been established for 
the protection of all concerned. 

Anyone associated with the University, who operates 
a vehicle on campus, must register the vehicle, regardless of 
its ownership, with the University Police within twenty-four 
hours after arrival. Penalty for failure to do this is a ^5 fine, 
so in case you don't own an oil well or two, please don't for- 
get to register your car. 

Upon registration you will be given a parking permit 
which must be placed in the top center of your front wind- 
shield. Parking in any lot other than that specified on the 
permit between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. weekdays will result 
in a $3 fine. 

There is an Appeals Board composed of a member from 
the administration, a faculty member, and a student which 
meets regularly to consider questionafile cases, but you've 
got to have an a^vfully good case before they will consider it. 

72 




DEPORTMENT AND DISCIPLINE 

It is assumed that all persons who continue their school- 
ing beyond the secondary level are trying to become mature 
and responsible members of the society in which they live. 
It is not just idle talk that the leaders of society will be its 
more educated members. But perhaps even more important 
than the knowledge a University can impart to its sttidents 
is the opportunity to mature in wisdom and responsibility. 

A student is expected to know the fundamentals of 
personal integrity and their importance. Any student who 
violates these fundamentals is dealt with accordingly, since 
such a person has no place in society at all, and especially 
not a position of leadership. A student may be given dis- 
ciplinary probation for misdemeanors, or he may be sus- 
pended or expelled from the University, depending on the 
seriousness of the offense. 



73 



While improper conduct in general is out of line, 
specific rules the administration requires students to honor 
include the following: 

1. No drinking of alcoholic beverages on campus, in 
fraternities or sororities, or at any functions sponsored by 
a student organization. 

2. No gambling on campus or in fraternity or sorority 
houses. 

3. No smoking in classrooms. 

4. No one is to be in a classroom, administration, or 
recreation building unsupervised after 8 p.m. weekdays or on 
holidays without written permission. 

5. Keys to rooms and buildings are obtained through 
official channels only. Illegal possession or iinauLhorized use 
of keys is considered a serious offense. 

6. No mobs or riots are permitted, panty raids included. 

7. No cheating or plagiarism. 

ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

Exams: Midterm examinations are usually predeter- 
mined by the instructor and dates for these appear on the 
course outline. Finals are held at the end of each semester. 
"Blue Books", the official exam booklets are required unless 
otherwise specified by the instructor. 

Dismissal and Probation: The rules governing dismissal 
and probation that you should be acquainted with at the 
present time are: 

A student failing 50 percent or more of his academic 
credits in any semester will be dismissed. 

A student failing 35 percent of his academic credits in 
any semester will be placed on academic probation. 

A student having been placed on probation and not 
achieving such grades as are required under the probation 
plans will be dismissed. 

A student will remain on academic probation for the 
next semester of residence. He will then be released pro- 
vided he has earned at least a 1.75 average and has not failed 
more than 35 percent of his work. 

Exceptions are made for the first semester freshmen. A 
freshman who is dismissed from the University at the end 
of his first semester because he failed 50 percent or more of 
his academic credits will be reinstated immediately on the 
probation plan upon receipt of a specific request by the 
student's parent or guardian.
