Miss Janyce Notopoulos
In dedicating the 1968 M Book, the SGA is
proud to honor the new Assistant Dean of
Women for Student Life, Janyce Notopoulos. In
her capacity as advisor to the Panhellenic Coun-
cil and the Denton Hall Judicial Board, Dean
Notopoulos has proven herself a capable ad-
ministrator and source of inspiration to the stu-
dents. She has sparked new life into the Greek
system and has ignited new ideas for its growth.
She has likewise inspired the independent wom-
en to strive for higher goals and greater con-
tributions to the University.
Although it is unusual to dedicate a publi-
cation to an administrator who has only been
here for one year, we feel that her untiring ef-
forts and sincere dedication to the welfare of
the students have been more than deserving of
A Message to the Class of 1^6S
On behalf of the Student Gov-
ernment Association of the Univer-
sity of Maryland, I bid you wel-
come. You will hear the word "wel-
come" many times in this opening
week of school. But for you, the
freshman it will take on a new
meaning. It will mean welcome to
self-dependence to a greater extent
than you have ])reviously experienced. It will
mean welcome to a new academic environment.
It will mean welcome to a new world of extra
curricular activities. The word welcome looms
large on your horizon. But greater than the word
itself are the Challenges that the word represents.
For those who fail to realize the challenges or
who simply neglect them I can only say your
college experience will be like a black and white
photograph, sufficient and representative. But
to those students who have the initiative and
the ability to grasp the challenges of academics,
self-dependence and extra-curricidar activities,
yoin- life will be like a color photograph, a
little more than sufficient and a little more than
I say to each and everyone of you, set your
goals high and seek them out. It is not failure
that is a crime, but rather, low aims.
Good luck to you in all your endeavors.

A major purpose of going to college is to
lurther one's education. Diligent scholarship is
a responsibility of the student of higher educa-
tion; the Freshman, particularly is responsible
for taking the required courses, taking sufficient
credits, and planning ahead.
Classes are of either 50 or 75 minute diuation
(the 50 minute class conducted on a 3 day a week
basis, the 75 minute class on 2 day a week basis).
If the instructor is late, students are required to
wait 20 minutes for deans, 15 minutes for doc-
tors, and 10 minutes for all instructors before dis-
missing themselves. There are no automatic
"cuts" (absences) for freshmen (with the ex-
ception of second semester freshmen who have
attained a 3.5 average for the previous semester),
and a report is turned in to the student's dean
if he has more than three unexcused cuts in a
class. Instructors may penalize freshmen for ab-
sences. Excused absences include illness and par-
ticipation in University activities at the request
of University authorities. Upperclassmen (soph-
omores, juniors and seniors) are allowed unlim-
ited cuts in those courses classified as non-activity
comses (those in which the student does not
actively participate as a part of the instruction).
Although this privilege has been extended, the
University does not encourage the habit of cut-
EXAM IN Al IONS
A ivvo hour exam is held at the end of each
semester lor each course taken. Graduating sen-
iors are not requiied to take a fuial exam. No

during the semester. Only a student with a legal
excuse will be allowed to make up an exam he

All P'reshmen students doing work below "C"
le\el after the first 6 weeks of school receive slips

computing tlie o\erall academic average.
First semester freshmen are allowed to wait 8
weeks before dropping a course; all other stu-
dents are allowed 3 weeks. The student must see
his academic advisor and dean for approval.
Students should consult the Academic Regula-
tions booklet })ublished by the University.
A student must consult his new dean upon
transferring colleges. A student with unsatisfac-
tory records will be placed under control of the
Office of Intermediate Registration lO.LR.). Un-
der the O.I.R. program, the student can absolve

PROBA HON AND DISMISSAL

he has not maintained at least a 1.5 average for a
year's work or if he fails more than 35% of his
academic work in any one semester. A student
will be dismissed after he has been on probation
more than 2 separate times or if he fails 50% or
more of his academic work in a semester.
ACADEMIC AND JUNIOR STANDING
An average of C and a minimum of 56 hours
of academic work (not including P.E., health or,

of the Probationarv semester.
rhe University maintains the Counseling Cen-
ter to assist students to maintain a better under-
standing of themselves and to develop improved
methods for dealing with vocational choice, ed-
ucational and personal problems. The Center
provides an extensive program on reading and
study skills given on an individual basis on a
six-week cycle wth two cycles each semester.
Students pay an annual "Advisory and Testing
Fee" at the time of registration and are entitled
to the services of the Counseling Center without
further charge. Psychological tests of abilities,
a]3titudes, interests and personality are employed
when a])}jropriate. The Counseling Center is
located in Shoemaker Hall.
Many groups on campus offer free tutoring for

ments also offer tutoring, though a nominal fee
may be charged.

The individual student is the most important
factor in the effective functioning of the SGA.
He finances the operation of all student activi-
ties and services through the $12 fee he pays in
September, and elects the people who represent
him as officers. Therefore, you, the freshmen
are urged to become and remain well informed
concerning the activities of the SGA.
The executive branch of the SGA, the cabi-
net, is responsible for policy making. It acts on

to acquaint new students with the campus
through toins, lectures, assemblies, and dances.
It is comparable to the two day pre-college pro-
gram held throughout the summer.
Pcople-to-Pcoplc— The People-to-People Pro-
gram is of special interest to you. Through its
various projects, including the Big Sister-Brother
program and social and cultural functions, it
helps to orient foreign students to life in the
United States. Participation in any aspect of
this program can offer rewarding and memora-
Other committees of interest are: Campus Im-
provements, Who's Who, Parents' Day, Away
W^eekend, Public Relations, Student Union,
Student Activities, and Traffic. For informa-
tion concerning any of these committees ask at
the SGA office in the Student Union or a mem-
ber of the SGA.
Elections of the president, vice president, sec-
retary, treasurer, A.W.S. representative, and
Men's League representative for the Class of '68,
and six legislature seats, will be held in the fifth
or sixth week of the first semester. Aspiring
candidates must submit an application and a
petition signed by fifty members of the class in
order to run for office. Campaigning lasts for
two weeks, one week for the primary and one
week for the final elections.
General elections are held in March or April.
Candidates are nominated by the Old Line, Free
State, and Chesapeake Bay Parties at conven-
tions a few weeks prior to elections. Complete
election rules and procedures can be obtained
by contacting the Election Board.
The DiAMONDBACK, the university newspaper
is published four times weekly, and is a vital
channel of communication on campus. Tuesday
through Friday we read all the news while it's
news. The many columns keep us posted and up
to date on all campus activities, lectures, meet-
ings, and "try-outs" as well as inform us of world
happenings. The sports page covers all events
both varsity and intramural. The music and
drama columns clue us in to the "latest." The
DiAMONDBACK cauuot fimctiou without you, the
Freshman Class. There are several opportunities
for you to try your journalistic abilities by writ-
ing or reporting for the Diamondback. You will
seek out the news, put it into print, and keep
the presses rolling. Interested?
The Diamondback holds its Open Houses in
the fall and also in the spring. The present staff
urges you to attend and learn more about this
vital and dynamic publication. Although help-
ful, experience is not necessary and there is a
job waiting for you in the Diamondback office
of the Journalism Building. When you come to
apply, ask for Marie Howell, Editor-in-Chief, or
see Sterling Shiftman, Business Manager, or
meet Doug Gould, Executive Sports Editor and
Charles Rhudy, Managing Editor. We'll be
looking for your by-line next edition.
"Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines!" Yes, you're
nearing the Terrapin office when you hear these
words. From September to April this cry as-
cends from Room 207 and it is this sense of vital
activity that makes the yearbook such dynamic
work. If you would like the challenging activity,
come in and watch the "cuts" and "copy" being
planned for next year's Terrapin. Your talent
will surely be snatched up as soon as you sub-
mit your application. Like to plan pages of
copy and pictures, edit a section of Drama or
Fraternity and Sorority life or is photography
your hobby? Let it work for you on the Ter-
rapin. The opportunity is yours in Room 207
of the Journalism Building. Come in and get
acquainted with the staff!
All dials are set at 650. Why? It's WMUC,
the voice of the University of Maryland affili-
ated with NBCA and a member of the Intercol-
legiate Broadcasting Co. You hear news as it's
being made and much more. Twenty-four hours
a day WMUC is heard— entertaining and in-
forming the Campus. And who could ever for-
get the voice of the anonymous Miss Midnight
who closes the evenings with her very special
goodnights. If you have a yen to be a jazz D.J.,
or a mysterious voice at midnight, you will be
welcomed at the WMUC office, in Building FF
in the "Gulch."
Are you a budding James Joyce, T. S. Eliot,
or Pablo Picasso? If you are— the Calvert Re-
view wants you. The Calvert Review is the
Maryland literary magazine and was established
in the fall of '63. The Calvert Review is new
and is searching for new talent— your talent in
prose, poetry or art. Submit your latest manu-
script in the Calvert Review office in the Jour-
nalism Building. Your work may win the $20.00
prize for the best piece of prose or verse.
Hopefully, this publication, the M Book,
which you are now reading, will be the Fresh-
man's "bible". In handbook form, the M Book
compiles and organizes all the information a
new student on campus would want to know. It
lists hours, dates, activities, phone numbers, and
regulations which the Freshman cannot possibly
learn all at once, or for that matter, learn dur-
ing his four years here at Maryland. This com-
pact University encyclopedia includes everything
a newcomer needs to know to make his adjust-
m.ent to college life a pleasant and profitable
The M Book staff is mainly composed of
Freshman and Sophomores with a few upper-
classmen in editorial positions. All Freshman
are urged to apply for work on the staff, espec-
ially if you are considering furthering your par-
ticipation in college publications, since this is
excellent background experience. Applications
may be picked up and returned to Dean Flo-
restano's office in the Student Union and more
information may be obtained from Steve Dub-
noff, S.G.A. Vice President.
THE UNIVERSITY MEMORIAL CHAPEL,
dedicated in 1952 to those of the University who
gave their lives in war for the cause of freedom,
is the center of religious life on campus. It is
composed of the East or main Chapel, the West
Chapel, and the Roman Catholic Chapel and
houses the offices of the chapel staff.
THE STUDENT RELIGIOUS COUNCIL,
with representatives from each of the student re-
ligious groups, strives to coordinate the activities
of these groups and to promote religious interest
and activity on campus.
THE RELIGIOUS LIFE COMMITTEE is a
standing committee of the University Faculty
Senate and functions by making and executing
policy, sponsoring non-denominational religious
j^rograms and acting as an advisory group.

This small group of singers give performances

Varsity athletics at the University of Mary-
land are as fine as can be found anywhere. The
University is a member of the Atlantic Coast
Conference (ACC), the National Collegiate Ath-
letic Association (NCAA), the Amateur Athletic
Association of America, and cooperates with oth-
er national organizations in the promotion of
Maryland has the Cole Activities Building
which contains a modern gymnasium, a swim-
ming pool, training facilities for indoor sports,
physical education laboratories, and an arena
with a seating capacity of 13,000. The Field
House is the heart of the Athletic Department
containing the offices of Mr. William Cobey, Di-
rector of Athletics, and the head coaches of foot-
ball, swimming, wrestling, baseball, and basket-
ball. Cole Field House is the scene of all home
wrestling matches and basketball games. Other
Maryland University facilities include a large
armory, which houses the indoor track and rifle
teams, modern Byrd Stadium with a running
track circling a football gridiron, a number of
athletic fields, tennis courts, a golf course, base-
ball diamonds, and a gymnasium and swimming
pool for women.
The major question in everyone's mind is who
will replace All-American Quarterback Dick
Shiner. Of those players competing for the posi-
tion, Ken Ambrusko, Jim Corcoran, and Ed Pine
arc top caiulidaies. Shiner accounted for 1200
yards total ofiensc last season; the man that fills
his shoes will have a tough job. This year Coach
roni Nugent and Staff will present a quick, hard
hitting, and colorful football team that Mary-
land fans have been seeing in the past. With a
lax in college substitution rules, look forward to
a Nugent platoon system. Returning lettermen
Daryll Hill, Moe Arbitina, George Stem, Len
Chiaverini, and Mike Funk will be needed for
next year's rough season, especially Oklahoma,
Navy, and Penn State.
Scoring 61 goals (new ACC record) the soccer
team posted an overall won-lost record of 10-3
and reached the semi-finals of the NCAA Cham-
j3ionship Tournament. Maryland lost to its old
nemesis, cmrent champion St. Louis, by a score
of 7-3. Maryland had beaten Drexel (5-2) and
Bridgeport (5-3) before bowing to St. Louis. In
eleven years of ACC competition the overall rec-
ord is 42-0-2. Maryland's all time NCAA Tour-
nament record is 6-5, having reached the semi-
finals three times and the finals twice but failing
to reach the coveted number one position.
The Ter])s were hit hard by a new ACC ruling
making foreign students ineligible for competi-
tion. All-American Ersin Bacinoglu was declared
unable to play during the season. Looking to the
future Coach Doyle Royal's team should con-
tinue to excel despite loss of key personnel.
The future for Bud Millikan's junior dom-
inated basketball team can be nothing but op-
timistic. At the beginning of last season the all-
sophomore line-up consisted of George Suder,
Mike DeCosmo, Jackie Clarke, Neil Brayton and
Rick Wise. Outstanding performances were
made by George Suder and Rick Wise against
some of the best teams in the nation. Suder
scored a team high of 327 points and maintained
a 13 point per game average. Wise shot for 293
points and an average of 11.3 per game. Gary
Ward, injured midway through the season, had a
13.9 game average. His loss to the team must be
associated to the tail-spinning effort during the
latter portion of the season.
The freshman basketball team, led by room-
mates Joe Harrington and Jay McMillen, rolled
to an impressive record of 15-1. The only loss
came at the hands of the Navy Plebes. Forward
McMillen boasts a 374 point total and a 23.4
point per game average. Harrington, who made
107 out of 211 field goal shots for a team high
50.7 percentage, sports a 270 point total and a
16.9 scoring average per game. These boys also
accounted for one-third of the total number of
rebounds last year. Both boys will probably find
starting berths on the varsity team this season.
The greatest assets of the basketball team are
its natural ability and youth; the team only
needs experience to carry it to higher levels. Such
experience was gained in the regular season play
and in such tournaments as the VPI Invitational
Tournament, Evansville Invitational, and the
ACC Tournament. Look forward to an exciting
and a winning basketball team next year.
Maryland's dominance over ACC rivals con-
tinued as Sully Krouse's Terps won their 11th
consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference Cham-
pionship in as many years. Maryland wrestlers
placed nine of ten possible men in the cham-
pionship finals; finishing with seven firsts and
two runners-up. The individual ACC champion-
shi]3 hnalists are Thomas Schleicher (115 lbs.),
Samuel Cole (130 lbs.), John Henderson (137
lbs.), Bob Kopnisky (147 lbs.). Nelson Aurand
(157 lbs.), Marshall Dauberman (177 lbs.), Gary
Wikander (191 lbs.) . Most of these boys will
return and are expected to comtinue their win-
The Terp Mermen finished second to North
Carolina in regular season dual meets but were
tops in the ACC Tournament scoring 145^/^ team
points. Outstanding individual performances at
the meet were made by Kevin Gilson in the 50
yard freestyle (time 22.5 sec.) and Bill Doheny,
100 yard breast stroke (time 1:03.8) . All-Amer-
ican diver and co-captain, Ron Squires, won the
one meter diving event. A fine team effort was
made in the 400 yd. Relay; a combination of
Nullmeyer, Gilson, Lampe, and Geary, was used
Looking to next year Coach Campbell has
reason to be optimistic. Baltimorean Phil Den-
kevitz set a world record of 21.00 seconds for the
50 yard freestyle event while swimming for the
freshmen team. Two other sophomores include
high school Ail-Americans Joe Brey and Mac
The best meet of the season will most likely
be against Navy. Last season the Terps beat the
Midshipmen 48-47 in the final event.
Al Heagy's team is second only to Navy in
nationwide collegiate lacrosse. Lost through
graduation was Ail-American attackman Bill
Petit. Remaining attackmen include amazing
junior Bob Newkirk, senior Pete Smith, and
Robert "Chopper" Wright. Midfielders not re-,
turning include Ail-American candidate Bob
Schied, Fred Betz, and John Anderson; back next
year are Jerry "Beast" Trosian, and Bob Rhom-
bro. The outstanding Maryland defense contains
All-American candidate Jackie Schofield, goalie,
Denny Synder and Billy Bucks. Late Spring la-
crosse will pit Maryland against the other Big
Four Lacrosse teams in the nation, Navy, Hop-
With the loss of pitchers Klvac, Vezendy, and
Lund, it would seem that Coach Jack Jackson
would have a serious problem. Sophomore pitch-
ers, Jerry Bark, Joe Heckel, and Sonny Novak
have the talent and need only the experience to
take over the vacant positions. Also up from the
freshmen team is first baseman Larry Davis who
is expected to be great.
Maryland lost several stalwarts in Barny Clev-
eland, Gene Gerber, and Tom Marcellino. Re-
turning to this year's team is nationally ranked
Jim Busick, Len Modzelewski, Roger Flax, and
Lou Dobies. The biggest match of the season
will come against North Carolina.
Despite the loss of six lettermen Maryland is
expected to repeat its good showing of last year.
The boys to watch are Bob McFerren and Tom
The cross-country team compiled an overall
seasonal mark of 3-2 and a 2-2 Atlantic Coast
Conference mark. The Kehoe men placed third
in the ACC meet; a top individual effort was
made by George Michael in this event.
An integral part of campus life is athletics,
and although varsity sports are more in the lime-
light, intramurals are marked by outstanding
skill and fierce competition. Intramurals are
composed of the Dormitory League, the Open
League, and the highly rated Fraternity League.
Intramurals have grown in popularity and
size as a major campus event. Under the auspices
of Coach Jim Kehoe and the direct supervision
of Raymond Mullis, intramural sports on cam-
pus have risen from obscurity to widely publi-
cized and highly competitive athletic contests.
Intramurals are open to Greeks and Independ-
ents in three respective leagues— the Fraternity,
Open, and the Dorm Leagues. Such team sports
as football, volleyball, basketball, softball, bowl-
ing, and swimming; and individual sports such
as table tennis, golf, wrestling, weightlifting,
badminton, tennis, and cross country are includ-
ed in the varied program. Although fraternity
teams have dominated University championships
in the past because of their superior organization
and high spirit, some strong Independent teams
have been successful in challenging this mon-
opoly. Thus competition grows keener, and the
quality of the sports increases in value.
Individual sports winners include: Denny
Koch (SC)-tennis, Clarke Goldstein (TEP)-
table tennis, John Kenworthy (ATO)— badmin-
ton, and Wade Whitner (ATO)— cross country.
Winners of team sports include: Sigma Phi Ep-
silon, fraternity football champions, and the
Aces, Open League champs. The Aces beat SPE
in the University Championship. The fraternity
dominated swimming event was won by the ap-
propriately named. The Dark Horses, an inde-
pendent team. The University volleyball cham-
pionship was won by Sigma Phi Epsilon as they
beat the Open League champs, the Ukes. In
University basketball the Untouchables defeated
Phi Kaj3pa Sigma for the first place crown.
It is recommended that each incoming fresh-
man explore the possibilities of intramural ac-
tivities to experience the thrill of competitive
s]3orts on the college level. Information about
intramurals may be secured from Coach Kehoe
or Mr. Mullis at the Intramural Office in the

COLOR C;UARD MAJORE7TES
The Color Guard Majorettes at the University
of Maryland are the flag bearers of the Univer-
sity Band. Carrying the American and State
flag, as well as the flag of each school in our
Atlantic Coast Conference, the thirteen Color
Guard Majorettes march at all of the home foot-
ball games and several of the away games dur-
ing the fall semester.
No previous majorette experience is necessary
in order to try-out for Color Guard. However,
a girls must meet the qualifications of being
between 5'4" - 5'8" in height, must not be stu-
dent teaching in the fall, and must be able to
attend practice the week preceding fall registra-
tion. Try-outs are held every spring when nine
or ten girls are chosen.
If you'd like to spur the Terps on during
football, basketball, and lacrosse games, start
getting in shape for the mid-football season se-
lection of cheerleaders. The cheerleaders organ-
ize pep rallies during the football season and
attend a few of the away games. If you are
interested contact any of the cheerleaders and
watch the Diamondback for notices. Males will
also be selected for the squad. The present
squad consists of:

TO THE COMMUTER
Residents of the dormitories on the hill have
only a step to go to class but some have a very
long walk for that first cup of coffee in the old
Dining Hall. You commuters may eat breakfast
and dinner cosily at home, but you have to make
a substantial effort to get to class.
Each group has physical hurdles like cars to
class or walks to meals. Each group must move
out of its shelter into a new day.
Everyone has some psychological and social
adjustments to make and a lot of changing to do
in the process of becoming self-directed, appro-
priately oriented and self-fulfilling personalities.
You as a reasoning person should recognize
when the going is rough and look for someone
who can help best to release your own powers
of self direction.
The whole staff of the Executive Dean of Stu-
dent Life, whether you find us in the North Ad-
ministration Building, the Student Union, the
Counseling Center or the Health Service, stand
ready just for this purpose and we expect to be
called upon. Our information, our skills, our
intelligence and our good will are at your service.
I hope to see many of you in the UCA where
all types of new students, from the confused to
the most confident, may grow through friendship
and joint endeavor into men and women of per-
sonality and purpose. (,^,.^.^„^,^

All commuting students, with or without a
car, are urged to sign up at the end of the regis-
tration procedure in the Armory or in the Stu-
dent Union during registration week. Mimeo-
graphed lists of drivers and riders will be pub-
lished by areas. The list is posted in the Student
A weekend ride service has been set up for all
those students who desire a ride home on week-
ends. Students may sign up in the Commuters'
Association office in the Student Union.
All cars must be registered in the Armory dur-
ing registration, or at the Campus Police Station
after registration. Then you will be issued a
]3arking sticker which must be kept in your car
at all times ($5 fine if it isn't). Betw^een 7 a.m.
and 4:45 p.m., cars must be parked in the lot to
which they are assigned. After 4:45 p.m. they
may be parked in a lot other than those marked
reserved at all times. Never make the expensive
mistake ($3) of parking in a lot which your
car's sticker doesn't match. Metered spaces are
available at the Student linion and on the lot
behind the Infirmary.
The 20 mph. signs on campus are for the
safety of students who wish to attend classes or
just stroll about campus— minus scratches. Please
don't leave home so late you have to disobey
them to make your classes. The stop signs at
every corner are for the same reason and the
penalty for going through a stop sign is an $11
fine. Pedestrians always have the right of way,
but on the other hand, it's only fair to drivers
for pedestrians to cross at the corners.
Greyhound Bus Lines offer direct service to
the Varsity Grill on Baltimore Ave. in College
Park. Buses leave the terminals in AVashington
(12th and Ncav York Ave.) and Baltimore (How-
ard and Centre), approximately every half-hour.
For further information in Washington call NA
8-8000 or in Baltimore call SA 7-5780.
D.C. Transit System operates a direct line be-
tween Friendship Heights terminal at Wisconsin
and Western Ave. in Chevy Chase, Md., and the
Beltway Plaza just on the east side of campus in
College Park. The following map shows the route
followed by this line and the lines which may be
used for easy access to the Bethesda-College Park
Line. The map was reproduced with the per-
mission of D.C. Transit System Inc. For further,

IJNIVERSI lY COMMUTERS'
The Commuters' Association was organized
in an effort to provide commuting students with
the extracurricuhir activities they so often miss
as a result of their non-resident status. Although
primarily a social organization, the U.C.A. pro-
vides a well roimded program which attempts to
encompass the diverse interests of over fifty per-
cent of the campus population. Dances, parties,
picnics and hayrides highlight the social program
along with luncheons featuring guest speakers
and a spring banquet heading the list of cidtural
events. For those with an interest in sports,
there are both men's and women's teams spon-
sored by the U.C.A. in the intramural leagues as
well as a Commuters' Association bowling league.
(Commuters have shown an increasing interest
in campus politics and the U.C.A. has become an
active participant sending representatives to all
three campus parties. The U.C.A. President was
recently placed on the Student Government As-
sociation Cabinet and in that capacity represents
the commuter viewpoint in student government
The U.C.A. den and adjoining office, located
in the basement of the Student Union Building,
provide commuters with a place to gather with
their friends between classes and in the evenings.
Also located here is the Carpool Service which is
available to all students. Persons wishing to
form carpools or find rides to and from tfie uni-
versity may stop in and use tfie lists to locate
others commuting from the same area.
Probably the most important benefits of mem-
bership in the U.C.A. are the lasting ties of
friendship which develop as a result of the daily
social and academic contact with fellow students.

Greeks! That's a term you'll hear many times.
A Greek is someone who is a member of a frater-
nity or sorority. This leads to the question, what
is a fraternity or sorority? A college Greek
organization is a group of girls (or boys) banded
together for social or intellectual purposes, and
dedicated to common ideals.
Greeks play an important role in the campus
community. In politics, sports, publications, hon-
oraries— all the facets of campus life, Greeks are
active. Each group supports a nation-wide phil-
anthropic project together with chapters across
the nation. Projects vary from helping the blind
to aiding an entire mountain settlement.
Great emphasis is placed on scholarship. High
scholarship is encouraged by study progiams,
tutoring service, and trophies. The all-sorority
average is above the all-women's average and
the all-fraternity average is usually above the all-
men's. Greeks not only work for personal merit
in their academics but work in a united group
effort for scholastic achievement.
Fraternity and sorority houses are located
across Route 1 from the main campus on Frater-
nity Row, and on College Avenue, Princeton
Avenue, Norwich Road, and Knox Road in Col-
lege Park. Within these houses lifelong friend-
shipes are made, card games are lost, study sess-
ions riui into the wee morning hours, and pro-
blems and joys are shared. We urge you to find
out more about the Greek system and how it
-will benfit you, by going through rush this fall.
Helen ^^^B^^^^^^H Panhellenic
Hyre ^^^^^^^^^^^B President
Your first introduction to sorority life at the
University is an exciting week of rush. Rush
is the period of social activity in which sorority
women and girls interested in sororities may be-
Rushing lasts for a week and a half and is
divided into sets of parties. During the first set
of Open House Teas rushees must visit all 18
sororities. After Open House Teas there are
two sets of informal parties where the rushee
returns to eight and four sororities respectively.
On the last night. Preference teas are held to
give the rushee one more opportimity to make
Rushing culminates in pledging. Pledgeship
is a period of learning about the sorority, help-
ing with the pledge projects, and, most impor-
tantly, getting to know new-found sisters. The
major emphasis during pledgeship is on scholar-
ship because a girl must have at least a 2.2
average to be initiated into any of Maryland's 18
Sorority women participate in many enjoyable
and worthwhile activities— fireside chats with
favorite professors, deserts with fraternities, and
philanthropy projects are but a few of these.
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Uni-
versity of Maryland on behalf of the Panhellenic
Association and every sorority woman on cam-
pus. During the next few years you ivill be
seeking and discovering your aims, goals, and
most lasting friendships Membership in the
sorority system can enhance your opportunities
to develop socially and personally and offer you
your most enriching and reioarding experiences.
As a Greek you can experience a true college
education with emphasis on scholarship; de-
velopment and extension of interests and ideas:
service to college and community; social life;
and warm fellowsliip, friendship, and fun. Soror-
ity study programs, tutoring, and trophies add
incentive for high scholastic achievement and
keep the all-sorority average consistently higher
than the all-women's average. Greeks expect
their members to be active in campus activities.
Each sorority sponsors a nationwide philan-
thropic project. Cultural activities include fire-
side chats by members of the university faculty.
Most important to Cjreek women is the ivarm,
close, and lastijig friendships that come from
living with a group of people who truly are
your sisters. As you seek what will be most
worthwhile for you at Maryland, we hope that
you will consider sorority membership.
Every soioiiiy woman on campus is a member
ot the Panhellenic Association, The Panhellenic
Council, the regulating body of the Association,
is composed of two delegates from each sorority.
The Coimcil provides a forum for the exchange
of ideas between sororities and plans worthwhile
projects to be carried out for the betterment of
the sorority system and the entire campus.
In addition, our campus has a Junior Panhel-
lenic Council which serves to coordinate the
activities of the pledge classes and to train fu-
ture members and officers of Senior "Panhel."
Here, at Maryland, The IFC or Interfratern-
ity Council, who's fimction is to strengthen and
co-ordinate the activities of the individual
houses in a group effort, is composed of twenty-
four fraternities each having one voting dele-
gate to the Council. Business of the IFC meet-
ings concern such aspects of fraternity life as
IFC Presents, IFC Ball, IFC Athletic Program,
IFC Scholarship, a tutoring service, and IFC

1MERFRATERNH Y RUSH
Rush is one of the most important aspects oT
the fraternity system because it is the life-line
of the system. Rush at the Maryland campus is
composed of a series of schedided events; Indoc-
trination in Rush policies and Rush procedures,
and an introduction to the indixidual fraternity
Vou may wonder ho^v to go about rushing.
Ihe IF(^ has prepared a Rush Booklet intro-
ducing Fraternities, the Fraternity system, and
Rush to the rushee. Publicity is distributed
throughout the Maryland campus and the siu-
rounding areas. Any questions on the Fratern-
ity system or any parts of the system will be
gladly answered by the fraternity member on
campus or through the IFC.
If you, an indi\'idual who wants to kno^v
more about the Fraternity system, or you, an
individual who is just curious, take the time to
look into the Fraternity system, YOU will -want
to become a Fraternitv Man.
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you
to the University of Maryland, On behalf of
the Interfraternity Council and its 24 member
fraternities, I would like to extend to you an
invitation to become familiar with Greek life.
The fraternities at Maryland, ranging in size
from 15 to 100 members, offer the student
countless opportunities to develop personal
friendships, engage in a well-structured intra-
mural sports program, and achieve academic
Fraternities are also well represented in al-
most all phases of extracurricular student life;
S.G.A., University Theater, University athletics,
and campus publications, to mention but a few.
Pledge programs place an organized emphasis
on scholastic achievement coupled vjith growth
of you as an individual.
The primary objective of your college career
is the development of a more complete man,
both academically and socially. The fraternity
compliments the University toward the fulfill-
ment of this objective.
Leaving you with these thoughts, I wish you
every success in your college endeavors and urge
you to sample for yourself, in the coming Fall
rush, the experience of Fraternity.
