The historical background of the University of Maryland
reflects the impressive growth of one of the oldest and largest
educational institutions in the United States, In each stage of its
development the University has striven to achieve new goals which
would distinguish it from other institutions, and in many phases the
accomplishments have been outstanding. Today, the University
of Maryland still aims to improve every aspect of its educational
structure in order to make the thousands of men and women who
have dedicated a part of their lives to the institution justly proud.
In 1807 the idea of a University of Maryland became a reality
with the establishment of the University of Baltimore and the College
of Medicine, the sixth such institute in America. The College of
Medicine, striving to achieve new goals, was the first medical school
to place dissection as a compulsory part of the curriculum and to
create an independent chair of feminine diseases. The second phase
in the growth of the University came in 1871 when the Maryland
College of Pharmacy was added to the University of Baltimore, and
a chair of analytical chemistry was placed in the curriculum. The
Maryland School of Law, the fourth law school in the United States,
was added to the Baltimore campus in 1882. During the same year,
the School of Dentistry was founded, the first dental college to be
established in the world and the first institution dedicated to the
only profession that is distinctly American. In 1889 the Maryland
School of Nursing was founded by Louisa Parson with the coop-
eration of Florence Nightingale.
The College Park campus of the University of Maryland began
in 1856 as the Maryland Agricultural College after a group of
southern Maryland farmers purchased the estate of Charles B. Calvert,
Esquire. The Maryland Agricultural College became the third such
institution established in the western hemisphere. Then in 1862
Congress passed the Morrill Land Grant Act which provided the
Maryland Agricultural College an opportunity to be one of the first
to benefit from federal aid to education. After a disastrous fire in
1912 and a tragic decrease in enrollment due to World War I, the
Agricultural College found it necessary to apply for further state aid.
Maryland State College officially began in 1914 when the Maryland
State Legislature bought all the stock in the College.
The next major phase in the growth occurred in 1920 when
Maryland State College and the University of Baltimore were united
to form the University of Maryland. The College of Special and
Continuation Studies was established in 1940 to provide an overseas
program for servicemen and dependents of government employees.
This program has continued to grow and it now serves twenty-five
countries on four continents.
Both the Baltimore campus and the College Park campus have
grown immensely in the past few years. Recently a new four-year
division was established at Catonsville which is now in its second
academic year. The College Park campus has also experienced
recent additions with the opening in 1965 of the Adult Education
Center, the Fine Arts Building which houses the J. Millard Tawes
Theater, the Education Building, and the Computer Science Center.
In 1966 the first portion of the Ellicott City Complex was completed
including a dining hall; the additions to H. J. Patterson Hall and
the Physical Sciences Building were also finished. With this fall
will come the opening of the Space Science Center and an addition
to the Physics-Astronomy Building, including the unveiling of the
Cyclotron. Another addition to the College Park campus is in the
area of the curriculum: the College of Architecture and the College of
Library Science have been formally established with the new deans
to be named this fall.
The University of Maryland continues to grow in all areas
of educational achievement. The University ranked eighth in the
nation this year in total enrollment, which is proof that the University
is growing physically as well. Over 130,000 men and women have
received degrees from the University and the number is rapidly
increasing. The University of Maryland is truly a vital part of
higher education in the United States.
History of the Colleges
College of Agriculture
This college, the oldest division of the University of Maryland,
headed by Dean Gordon M. Cairns, was originally founded in 1856
as the Maryland Agriculture College. Graduates of the College of
Agriculture enter a wide variety of careers in the field of agricultural
science, technology, and business. Symons Hall is the headquarters
of the College of Agriculture.
College of Arts and Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences through its seventeen depart-
ments offers majors in most of the basic academic fields in the
humanities, social sciences, biological and physical sciences, mathe-
matics and the fine arts. The College was founded in 1921 when
the School of Liberal Arts and the School of Chemistry were merged.
College of Business and Public Administration
Dr. Donald W. O'Connell is Dean of the College of Business
and Public Administration. The College offers degree programs
through its six departments: Business Administration, Economics,
Geography, Government and Politics, Journalism and Information
Systems Management. Within the Department of Business Adminis-
tration eight different fields of concentration are offered, ranging
from accounting to transportation. The Departments of Geography,
Government and Politics and Journalism also offer alternative pro-
grams, including, for example, specializations in urban geography,
public administration and news-editorial work.
College of Education
Preparing young men and women to teach is the main goal of
the College of Education. Under the direction of Dean Vernon
Anderson the College offers courses in early childhood, elementary,
secondary, and industrial education.
College of Engineering
Since 1898, the College of Engineering has offered over 5000
baccalaureate degrees. Presently, under Dean Robert B. Beckmann,
the school offers degrees in: aeronautical engineering, chemical
engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical
engineering and fire protection.
College of Home Economics
In commemoration of its fiftieth anniversary, the College of
Home Economics is renaming its present building in honor of its
first dean. A plaque with the new name, Marie Mount Hall, will
be placed on the building by Dean Erna Chapman in a special
ceremony on October 21, 1967.
College of Physical Education
The College of Physical Education was founded by Dean Lester
M. Fraley eighteen years ago. A Bachelor of Science degree is
given to the students who successfully complete course work in
one of these fields: physical education, recreation, health, dance,
and physical therapy.
In an institution so deeply rooted in the past, there will
naturally be a number of long established customs and events that
have become a traditional part of life at a university and the
University of Maryland is no exception.
The most reknown of these customs is the terrapin mascot.
"Testudo," who watches over all University students from his
pedestal in front of McKeldin Library. Rubbing the bronze ter-
rapin's nose is said to bring special luck to any student. In 1965
Testudo n, a mechanical counterpart to Testudo I, was added and
can be seen at sport events.
From the steeple of the University Chapel, the chimes ring out
the strains of "Maryland, My Maryland" every hour on the hour to
warn all late students. At Christmas time the alma mater is replaced
by traditional carols.
No account of the University's traditions would be complete
without mentioning the Kissing Tunnel. This secluded spot may be
found under Chapel Drive in front of the Chapel and is especially
popular in early fall and in late spring.
Sponsored by the SGA, Maryland high school bands combine
their talents and perform during the half-time of an October football
Highlighting the football season is Homecoming. On the eve of
the Homecoming game, organizations and residence halls construct
elaborate floats which are viewed and judged in the pre-game parade.
During half-time the Homecoming queen is crowned. Concluding the
day's events is the Homecoming Dance in Reckord Armory.
This event, sponsored by the SGA, provides an opportunity for
University of Maryland students to attend an away football game.
Arrangements for transportation and tickets are planned in advance.
Sponsored by the SGA and held in the early fall, Parents' Day
is a special day dedicated to the parents who are invited to attend
the football game and visit residences having open house. Special
recognition is given to the parents at this time through a variety
of campus-wide programs.
Each year the Freshmen, Sophomore and Junior Proms are
held at Indian Springs Country Club. The social events of the
year are culminated by the Senior Prom, a formal dinner dance,
which is held at the Sheraton Park Hotel.
Campus Chest Week
In the spring, Campus Chest sponsors this fund-raising project
for charity. During this two-week period penny votes are cast in
the Ugly Man and Miss Campus Chest Queen contests. On Friday
night, College Casino brings legal gambling to campus for the
benefit of charity.
In the spring the SGA provides top flight talent at the Spring
Weekend Dance and a series of other events. This week-end last
year on campus featured Smokey Robinson and the Miracles as
well as Ian and Sylvia and Simon and Garfunkel.
Orientation Week is designed to introduce new students to
the University. Among the week's activities are the President's
Convocation, the Dink Debut mixer, and a cultural event during
which a nationally known entertainer will perform in an outdoor
concert. A series of individual group meetings designed to familiarize
the new students with campus activities and University life are also
planned. The Freshmen Orientation Board urges all new students
to attend these activities in order to gain a better understanding of
the University, its organizations and its facilities.
Each semester, the President of the University addresses the
student body in Cole Field House on current policies of the University.
President Elkins' address is comparable to the President's State of
the Union Address. Classes are dismissed for this event in order to
enable all to attend.
Freshmen should be familiar with the members of the Adminis-
stration and their responsibilities, for they coordinate and direct all
phases of University life. They are always anxious to meet students,
listen to their views, and help them with their problems.

What is a Union ?
A Union could best be characterized as the living room of
the campus. It is the focal point of cultural and social activity for the
Lniversity community. Its purpose is to provide the University
"family" with the programs and facilities to satisfy many out-of-
classroom tastes and needs. The activities and services offered by
the Student Union are for the enjoyment of all the members of the
University and are utilized according to individual interests in such
areas as meetings, lectures, dances and receptions, music, movies,
or simply relaxing over a cup of coffee or in a casual conversation
with friends. The Union is an important contributor in the
development of the student with respect to building sound citizenship
and acting as a workshop in human relations.

Student Government Association
The SGA is the governing body for all University students.
It protects their rights and interests and coordinates student
activities and services.
The individual student plays a most important role in the
proper functioning of the SGA: he pays a student activity fee during
registration which provides the working capital for SGA; he elects
the people who represent him as officers; and through these officers he
decides on the allocation of money as well as on many other policies.
Like the national government, the SGA is composed of executive,
legislative, and judicial branches.
Serving as a liaison with the student body, the faculty and the
administration of the University, the executive branch of the Cabinet,
is responsible for determining student policies. It acts on motions
passed by the legislature and appoints and supervises SGA com-

Judicial power which is granted by the Faculty Senate Committee
on Student Discipline is vested in six campus judicial boards. The
Judiciary Office refers cases to the various student Judiciary boards
according to the jurisdictional area of the student Judiciary boards
and the seriousness and nature of the offense. The student Judiciary
boards in turn make recommendations to the Judiciary Office for
disciplinary action, if any, to be taken. The student judiciaries
operate upon the basis of fundamental fairness during their hearing
procedures; they strive to consider each case individually rather than
matching penalties for specific offenses, and are more rehabilitative
than punitive in their philosophy. Each student has an opportunity
to appeal the decision reached to the next highest student Judicial
board. Appeals of Central Student Court cases are heard by the
Faculty Senate Committee on Student Discipline.
CENTRAL STUDENT COURT is an appellate board holding
jurisdictional power over other student judicial groups. The nine
justices hear appeals of decisions of other boards. They also may
hear cases involving violations of University regulations by student
organizations or groups of students. Members must have at least
sophomore standing and a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade-

The Panhellenic Council which operates as the governing body
for the entire sorority system organizes various inter-sorority projects.
Panhell, in conjunction with the faculty and administration, make
rules concerning sorority membership, selection, pledging and
initiation. Two delegates from each of the eighteen sorority houses
on campus comprise the Panhell organization.
Sorority rush is divided into several rounds of parties. Each
rushee is required to visit each sorority during the initial open houses.
After attending the Set of Eight and Set of Four parties, the rushee
limits her selection to two houses in the preference Teas. Rushing
culminates in a period of pledging during which the student strives
for the 2.2 average required for initiation.
Each fraternity house has one delegate to IFC, the coordinating
body of the fraternity system. The function of the Council is to
coordinate the activities of the 24 houses and to promote the welfare
of fraternities as a group. Stag and dated parties comprise much
of the fraternity system's formal rush. Rush ends in pledging, a
period during which the new member learns about the fraternity
and works to earn the 2.0 academic average required for initiation.
While only a few sororities hold informal rush in the spring, the
fraternity system holds both an informal and a formal rush at this
Residence Hall Council

president of RCH hold positions on the SGA cabinet.
Some of the activities of RHC include a workshop for new
officers, Variety Night and a Presents featuring nationally known
entertainment. Freshmen can join its various committees by getting
in contact with the dorm president or representative to the Area

Representing the male students at the University, the Men's
League handles regulations pertaining to all men and promotes the
educational, cultural, social, and athletic welfare of all under-
graduate men. Like AWS, its female counterpart, Men's League
coordinates various activities such as the intramural program and
the Senior Awards Banquet.
Associated Women Students
Better known as AWS, this organization was established to
unify all women students. It functions throughout the year to
promote self-government in women's residence halls and sororities.
It fosters academic excellence and community service programs as
well as other special activities like the Christmas Choral Program
in the Chapel, the Big Sister and Commuter Affiliation Programs,
the Women's Seminar Series, and the Bridal Fair,
The Women's Seminar Series is a week long symposium of
lectures, films, discussions and other programs devoted to con-
temporary controversial topics.
The organization of AWS is based upon election and appoint-
ment. The officers and class representatives are elected in the spring
by a vote of all women students. Later, in the fall, the officers
appoint the chairman of the individual committees. These students
make up the AWS Executive Council — the actual representative
government of AWS.
The first activity sponsored by AWS in the fall is the Big
Sister Program. Each freshman woman and transfer student re-
ceives her own Big Sister, a specially chosen upper-classman who
introduces and explains the problems, privileges, and opportunities,
that are associated with the University.
In the spring AWS sponsors its newest event, The Women's
In addition, for the prospective bride, AWS in conjunction
with Bride and Home Magazine presents the Bridal Fair. Displays
of household and personal items such as trousseau fashions, china,
crystal, silver, and kitchenware are presented. The fashion show is
the highlight of the evening featuring clothes for the mother of the
bride, attendants, and that all -important gown and trousseau for
the bride herself.
University Commuters' Association
The University Commuters' Association offers the commuter
many opportunities to become involved in campus life. The UCA
serves as a link between the commuter and residents of dorms and
Greek houses as well as enabling him to become active in student
government, campus politics, and student organizations.
The Commuters' Den and the UCA Office are located in the
basement of the Student Union. The Den provides a convenient
place for commuters to meet and relax between classes.
The UCA sponsors many social and cultural events throughout
the year. The annual Playboy Ball is the most important dance of
the fall semester. Other activities include casual dances, Friday
afternoon coke dates, and the annual Homecoming float-building
party. The Spring Banquet for installation of officers is a highlight
of the spring semester.
Carpools for commuters are arranged at the beginning of each
semester in the Den. The UCA also sponsors a Weekend Trip
Service for students wishing to share expenses or driving with others.
The UCA is involved in all facets of University life. Not only
does the UCA offer social events, intramural teams, tutoring services,
and exam files, it also offers the many friendships formed with other
commuters in the Den.

A Word To The Wise
Now you're in. Your classes are scheduled and your books are
bought. But to feel a true part of the University community, there
is one subject yet to be considered — extracurricular activities.
To the members of the Class of 1971 who will be quick to take
advantage of the diversified program of activities, "on the hill"
assimilation into campus life will come easy.
In the fall semester, all organizations send out a campus-wide
search for enthusiastic newcomers. Publications, professional groups,
special interest clubs, and student government committees extend a
hearty welcome to all freshmen seeking activities.
Activities must be approached from the beginning of the college
career and should be geared to the student's own particular interests.
By becoming active in one or two activities in the freshman year,
a student lays the foundation for key positions as an upperclassman.
You're here, of course, "to concentrate on the books" but
delaying your participation in activities will only hinder any chances
for advancement later on in your college career. Statistics have
proved "that the students who find college the most difficult are
not those with too many activities, but those with too much in-

. . . For Those In Maryland ROTC
Air Force ROTC
The AFROTC objective is to place on active duty lieutenants
who demonstrate dedication to their assignments, willing acceptance
of responsibility, critical and creative thinking and the ability to
speak and write effectively. All men have an opportunity to
participate in the Air Force ROTC program and become members
of the aerospace team. A two-year program is planned for the
junior and senior years; freshmen may enter the four-year program.
Both programs are preceded by a summer Field Training Course in
which cadets get their first exposure to Air Force life and activities
and work with cadets from all over the United States. Men entering
the four-year program may compete for a full financial assistance
grant. Qualified cadets from both programs may take the Flight
Instruction Program and earn their private pilot license. All cadets
are entitled to many of the benefits offered to regular Air Force
Arnold Air Society
"The Arnold Air Society is an honorary professional organization
of AFROTC cadets which promotes the interests and ideals of the
United States Air Force, and provides opportunities for these young
men to better prepare themselves for future leadership positions in
the USAF." Every semester, second semester freshmen through
seniors rush the society and are welcomed into a six week pledge
program. These men, in addition to University and civic activities,
sponsor the ROTC Military Ball and the Angel Flight-Arnold Air
Force football game.
Each semester any qualified ROTC member may pledge this
service and military fraternity. Pledges are initiated at a banquet
held at the end of the semester. In addition to participation in
intercollegiate competitions in which the team displays its trick
drilling with sabres, the men in the Guard take part in varied
charitable, civic, and social functions.
Members of this national military honorary fraternity and
service organization serve as the University's honor guard. The two
drill teams perform both precision and trick drilling using bayonets.

the University and for the Corps of Cadets. This national service
organization works closely with the men of the Arnold Air Society,
serving as secretaries for cadets and officers. Their community,
university, social and charity projects cover a wide scope. All
interested women from second semester freshmen through first
semester juniors may sign up for Angel Flight each semester.
. . , For the Professional Future
Professional organizations are helpful both to those who have
and those who have not decided on their career. Professional groups
provide the opportunity to meet other students with similar vocational
interests. They also provide the opportunity to gain an additional
dimension of education. By showing the various facets involved
in a career choice the members of the professional groups are helped
to decide at an early stage of their career development, exactly
which aspect of a particular profession they prefer.
For those who do not have a definite career in mind the meetings
sponsored by professional groups offer the opportunity to learn about
various professional areas of interest, as well as the best method of
preparation for future career success. While the professional
organizations differ in degrees of activity, national affiliation and
academic requirements, their professional orientation and academic
emphasis provide a firm basis for their usefulness in career planning.
Listed below are professional fraternities, sororities and clubs
that are members of the Council of Professional Organizations.
The Council was formed to strive for a unified body of professional
groups, to act as a channel of communication between these groups
and to improve the academic and professional climate of the Univer-
sity. Those students who wish further information on any of the
following groups may contact the SGA Office (ext. 2801).

Bob Ward is the new football coach at Maryland but Coach Ward
is not new to Maryland football. Maryland's first Ail-American, he
hopes to instill this same winning spirit in his players. One of
his first orders of business was to move the football team under
one roof which will hopefully mean higher grades and stronger
unity. Al Pastrana who set passing records last season will be
leading the Terp attack this year aided by an improved running
game. The first home game of the year will be on October 7 against
Syracuse at Byrd Stadium.
Cross Country and Track
In cross country, Coach Jim Kehoe (22nd season) had another
undefeated season in dual meets (6-0) and won the ACC Champion-
ship for the third straight year with Milt Mathews showing out-
standing running form. In indoor track. Maryland was undefeated
in dual meet competition, earning an ACC Championship for the
twelfth straight year. Jim Lee, spring star, was the IC4A Champion
in the 60 yard dash. In outdoor track, Maryland was also undefeated
in dual meets making them ACC Champions for the eleventh straight
year and IC4A Champions. Coach Kehoe named Frank Costello
as a "world class performer" after his record 7T' high jump mark.
He again cited Jim Lee as outstanding due to his performance in
the 220 yard event in which he took third place in the NCAA.
William "Sully" Krouse, leader of the "Krousemen," has guided
his wrestling team to a perfect record. In Maryland's fourteen years
in the ACC the Grapplers have been champions every year. This
year should be no exception as last year's star-studded team was
dominated by many underclassmen. Outstanding last year and
returning for more action are Keith Billotte (130)', Gobel Kline
(152), Garry Blood (167) and Howard Zachmann (HVW). This
year Maryland will be trying to regain national ranking as it meets
some of the nation's top teams.
Last year, as in the past 22 years, Maryland was named
Conference Champion in soccer. Especially interesting was the fact
that the entire starting team was composed of sophomores. Coach
Doyle Royal expects an even stronger team next year due to the
return of Guy Fraiture who missed last year and three outstanding
freshmen: Laurence L. Ruhs, Peter Milhado, and Ali Kadaster. The
two big men to watch this year will be AU-American Alvaro Bitten-
court and Rufus Wallace as Maryland hopes to keep its stranglehold
on the ACC Championship.
Under the tutelage of offensive Coach John Howard and
defensive Coach Rennie Smith, the Maryland Stickmen hope to rank
among the top three teams in the nation if not to capture outright
the National Championship. This year's team should have an
exceptionally strong mid-field since twelve returning lettermen will
fill these positions. The attack positions were hurt by the loss of
AU-Americans Jack Heim and Allen Lowe but still figure to be
formidable with returning lettermen Steve La Vaute and Jerry Breslee.
Starring defensively are Norman "Hutch" Vander Schuyt and Jack
Dailey. Maryland expects stiff competition from always strong
Army, Navy, and Johns Hopkins.
"Mr. Swimming" is Coach Bill Campbell who last year coached
the Swimming Terps to a fine 11-2 record and third place in the ACC
Championships. This year's team will be led by seniors Bruce
Alston (Freestyle), Doug Springer (Breaststroke) and Wayne
Pawlowski (Breaststroke). Maryland also has four outstanding
juniors returning; Morris Spitzer (Freestyle), Mike Golub (Free-
style), Dave Heim (Distance Freestyle) and Jim Martin (Butterfly).
Two outstanding freshmen, Jack Levenson and JoeReid (co-captains) ,
will be valuable additions to the team. The high point of last season
came when Maryland beat Navy for the fifth straight year. This
was Coach Campbell's 100th victory and he celebrated it by doing
a one and one-half front flip with a one-half twist off the high board,
fully clothed !
When H. "Bud" Millikan stepped down from his post as varsity
basketball coach at the end of last season, it marked the end of a
seventeen-year era. Frank Fellows, the man named to succeed
Millikan, is expected to preserve some of the Miflikan brand of
basketball. A hot-shot guard under Millikan during his playing
days, and, for the last seven years his right-hand man as assistant
coach. Fellows will take over a varsity squad with a 11-14 record.
While he will depend on returnees Pete Johnson, Bill Jones, and Rick
Drescher, holdovers from Millikan's last varsity squad, his "biggest"
help should come from his sophomores. At (i'T\ sophomore Will
Hetzel will be the tallest member of the squad. Hetzel led his fresh-
man team in scoring and rebounding and could be the best at Mary-
land since the days of Gary Ward. Along with Hetzel, Tom Milroy
and Homer Warren will move up from last year's undefeated frosh
team to fight for starting spots.
Led by the hitting of all-ACC outfielder Jack Hetrick plus one
of the toughest pitching staffs in the conference, Coach Jack Jackson's
varsity baseball team will be strong contenders for the conference
pennant this spring. Tom Bradley, Mark Harris, George Manz,
Mike Herson and Phil Corddry compose a mound corps outstanding
in speed, control and experience.
The last time Maryland won the ACC Championship was in
1964, but Coach Doyle Royal thinks this year's team is capable of
winning the title because of returning lettermen Rich Harrington,
Frank Kready, John Sheaffer, and Dave Werchen. Coach Royal
expects good performances as well from Fulton Liss and Ray Buckluw,
both ineligible last year. The ACC Championships will be played
here on the 4, 5, and 6th of May. Maryland will also co-host the
Annual Cherry Blossom Tournament held here in March.
The golf team, under the excellent coaching of Mr. Frank
Cronin has never had a losing season since its formation in 1946.
Teams faced by the squad include Duke, North Carolina, North
Carolina State, Virginia, Clemson, Dartmouth, Princeton, and George-
town. Terp squads of previous years have received recognition as
ACC Champions and have placed players on the Ail-American teams.
The intramurals program offers everyone an opportunity to
participate in athletics and to develop sportsmanship, leadership, and
Coach Jim Kehoe coordinates one of the largest intramural
programs in the country. Last year, over 10,000 people participated
in team sports such as basketball, bowling, football, softball, swim-
ming, and volleyball. Individual sports including badminton, and
wrestling are also available.
Intramurals are open to Greeks and independents in three
respective leagues — the fraternity, open, and dorm league.
Women's Recreational Association
The Women's Recreational Association is composed of all
undergraduate women who automatically become members when they
matriculate. This student organization is governed by elected officers
and representatives from the dormitories, sororities, and the com-
muters. Although organized for the purpose of sports, the WRA
provides an opportunity for leadership through committee chair-
manships and group participation.
Any freshman who loves sports but has little spare time should
participate in the intramural program. The WRA offers archery,
badminton, tennis, pingpong, volleyball, basketball, and a swimming
marathon at various times throughout the year. Women also
compete against various colleges in such sports as hockey, basketball,
tennis, lacrosse, swimming, and volley ball. Some of the schools in
the competition are American, George Washington, Trinity, Mary-
mount, and Gallaudet.
Interest groups sponsored by WRA provide instruction in tennis,
ice skating, self-defense, and horseback riding. Affiliated clubs of
WRA include: Aqualiners, Modern Dance, and Fencing. WRA also
sponsors other events, the Freshman Picnic held during Freshman
Orientation Week which attempts to interest the freshmen women in
the WRA program, the Hockey, Tennis, Golf Sports Day held in the
fall, and Spring Banquet during which trophies are given to the
intramural winners and new members are inducted into Sigma Tau
Epsilon, the WRA honorary.
The cheerleaders always perform at home football and basket-
ball games as well as at some lacrosse and baseball games. Tryouts
which are open to everyone except seniors are held the week preced-
ing the last home football game.
Spirited and high-stepping describes the eight girls who form
the color guard of the University marching band. These girls,
complimented by four alternates, carry the Maryland flag as well as
those of Atlantic Coast Conference rivals: Clemson, Duke, North
Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wake
Forest. Tryouts for a position on the color guard are held in the
The M-Club honors Maryland athletes who have shown out-
standing skill in their particular sport and have earned varsity
letters. M-Club sponsors the Outstanding Intramural Athlete of
the Year Award and several athletic scholarships.
