ON CAMPUS 
Your Professor 

One place on-c ampus that you are sure to 
visit is the classroom. It is here that you 
will probably have your first encounter 
with a professor. Just like students, 
professors come in a variety of sizes, 
shapes, sexes, and styles. Their common 
goal is to assist you in your academic 
development. 

What makes the university unique from 
other levels of education is the opportu- 
nity to meet with your professor 
OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM. You 
might be surprised at how much you can 
learn without that desk in between the 
two of you. 

Go in to see your professor sometime. 
That's what office hours are for. A better 
understanding of "the person behind the 
chalk" will help you acquire a better 
understanding of course content and 
exactly what is expected of you. This is a 
resource that you should definitely 
cultivate. 



Your Classmates 

Whether you live in a dorm, a fraternity 
or sorority house, or commute to the 
university, you will be spending large 
amounts of time with other people who 
are going through the same experiences 
that you are. One of the greatest benefits 
of going to college is the chance to listen 
to and discuss ideas with people of widely 
different backgrounds and ideological 
viewpoints. You won't agree with all of 
them, but keep your eyes, ears and mind 
open. There is so much more to learn 
here than you will ever find either in the 
classroom or in books. In the stands at 
Cole Fieldhouse, on the Mall, in front of 
the library or over a beer, people are all 
around you. Take advantage of a chance 
to get to know them. 



The Secretaries 

Throughout your years at College Park, 
you will no doubt have occasions to go 
to various administrative offices. Your 
first contact will probably be with a 
secretary. 

Try to remember that he/she is not 
personally responsible for your problem 
and therefore does not deserve to be 
harassed and bombarded with four-letter 
words just so you can relieve your frustra- 
tions. Instead, try to exercise good human 
relations. A simple friendly request will 
increase his/her desire to assist you and 
ultimately get you a faster solution to 
your problem. 



Academic Advisors 

Each student at the university is assigned 
an Academic Advisor. Students with 
declared majors will meet their advisors 
through their respective department 
offices. Students who have registered as 
"Undecided" can meet with their advisor 
through the Undergraduate Advisement 
Center in the Undergraduate Library. 
Many Academic Advisors are fellow 
students (usually juniors or seniors) 
who are going through the program and 
can therefore give you some invaluable 
inside information. It's a good idea to 
touch base with your advisor at least once 
a semester, particularly when you are 
trying to arrange your schedule of 
classes for upcoming semesters. 



Orientation Leaders 

(often referred to as Student Advisors)— 
These are fellow students who have gone 
through an extensive training program to 
enable them to assist you. Their role is 
to facilitate your understanding of the 
university's program offerings, policies 
and operating procedures. The most 
important part of the Orientation 
Students Advisor's job is to advise 
incoming freshmen. In addition to the 
summer "Maryland Preview," these 
Student Advisors will address specific 
student concerns. They may not have all 
the answers, but an effort has been made 
to identify and provide answers for the 
majority of the questions that are asked 
by students new to the University. 

IN THE 
RESIDENCE HALLS 

Your Roommate(s) 

You walk bravely down your new hall 
toward your new room. You've been 
wondering all summer what your new 
room and roommate will be like. You 
walk nonchalantly into your room after 
checking three times to see if it's the right 
number. You saunter in — playing it 
"cool" and trying to show him you're not 
just any old scared freshman . . . You 
bravely stutter, "Hhhhhhhello, I'mmm, 
uh, your new, uh, roommate." 

"So what?" he cordially replies with 

an affectionate shrug. 

Do not panic. 

Do not go into immediate depression. 

This could be a simple case of schit- 
sofrenicpychoticalneuroticaltendencitis. 
Or, more likely, this could be a simple 
case of "he just doesn't know how great a 
person you are!" Talk to him, despite his 
lack of overzealous affection. You might 
just find he's got a lot of great attributes, 
just like you. Maybe he's a basketball 
freak like you, or maybe he likes the same 
music as you do. Just take that little time 
to get to know each other, and you may 
be on your way to a good comfortable 
relationship that could last forever or 
until you graduate, whichever comes first. 

Your Resident Assistant 

Each residence hall is staffed with several 
people whose job it is to develop and 
maintain a sound group living environ- 



What's 
Available 



ment. There is one R.A. for approxi- 
mately every sixty students. They arrange 
their schedules so that at least one of 
them will be available at all times. R.A.'s 
are there for the purpose of helping you 
maximize your experiences in the 
residence halls. They are trained and 
experienced in activities programming, 
advising and conflict management. It is 
valuable for you to come to personally 
know your R.A. 

Your Resident Director 

Residence Halls are managed by a full- 
time professional staff member, a 
Resident Director. Working with from 500 
to 1200 students, much of an R.D.'s time 
is spent working with his/her staff. Your 
R.D. has as his/her responsibilities the 
administrative and programming 
functions of the halls which he/she 
manages. In addition, your R.D. is a 
resource person and an appeals person 
for major concerns that cannot be 
handled by the R.A. You should become 
aware of who the R . D . is and how to get 
in touch if the situation warrants it. 

AT HOME 
Your Folks 

No, don't laugh. You'd be surprised at 
the large number of us who have actually 
experienced the phenomenon of our 
parents miraculously becoming wiser and 
more aware as we go through our four 
college years. Think about it! 



PUBLICATIONS 
The Diamondback 

Whether you're looking for your name in 
print, or are just interested in finding out 
what's happening on campus. The 
Diamondback is an invaluable source 
of information on current campus 
happenings. Independently run by 
students, the DBK also prints some city 
and national news. You can find it every 
weekday in the lobby of most buildings 
on campus, and it's FREE!! 

The Schedule of Classes 

In addition to a listing of courses offered, 
the schedule of classes also contains use- 
ful information such as a calendar of 
important dates, the final examination 
schedule, and registration procedures 
including how to Drop or Add courses. 

There are two editions for each Fall and 
Spring semester. The first is available 
about one week before preregistration and 
should only be used during preregistra- 
tion. The second edition is a revised 
version of the first and includes any 
changes made in courses. It is available 
approximately ten days before the first 
day of class. 

You can pick up a schedule of classes at 
any one of the following locations: the 
lobbies of the McKeldin and the Under- 
graduate Libraries, the Student Union 
and the North Administration Building. 

The Undergraduate 
Catalog 

Most of your questions about how this 
university operates are answered in the 
undergraduate catalog (along with this 
handbook). 

The front section of the catalog 
contains general information about 
admissions, credits, fees and financial 
aid, degree programs and university 
policies. The main body of the catalog 
gives a list of academic departments, 
programs, curricula, and course offer- 
ings. Check the index in the back. 

The catalog is part of the materials 
newly admitted students receive (also 
free), but don't lose it because you'll have 
to pay to get another.

The Terrapin 

Years from now, you'll be glad you have 
a yearbook to remind you of experiences 
at UMCP. The Terrapin is a hardcover 
volume produced by a student staff. There 
is a different theme every year . . . this 
year's deals with the environment. You 
can get one for $12.00 in room 3101 
of the Main Dining Hall. Check the DBK 
for the distribution date at the end of 
April. 



The Black Explosion 

An independent newspaper published 
every week which focuses on the 
activities of the university's Black 
students. It also covers national and inter- 
national events of interest to the Black 
community and should be read by all 
students. 

The Residence Halls 
Contract 

An overview of policies and procedures 
of concern to those of you living in univer- 
sity housing. For your own benefit, READ 
CAREFULLY before signing!

In addition to the above, each chapter 
has a number of in-house publications 
that explain in greater detail the services 
they provide. 

Major Newspapers 

Besides our own campus publications, 
two major sources of information and 
news are the Washington Post and the 
Washington Star. Both have sections 
geared towards young adults and give 
the latest developments in the field of 
entertainment. 

The Washingtonian 
Magazine 

A monthly publication aimed at all folks 
in the metro area that includes feature 
articles, a monthly calendar of events, 
restaurant reviews, description of things 
to do and places to go in and around 
D.C., and more. 



The following pages list, for your 
convenience, consideration, and 
contemplation, the student services 
that may be of use to you during 
your years at the UMazing Maryland. 
There are a multitude of these 
services — something for everybody 
as they say. If you'd like more infor- 
mation about a particular office, 
give them a call or drop by during 
office hours, 8:30-4:30, Monday- 
Friday. 

ADVISING - 
UNDERGRADUATE 
ADVISEMENT CENTER 

3151 Undergraduate Library 
(454-2733) 

Along with the Star Center, the Office of 
Minority Student Education, and the 
department advising offices the Under- 
graduate Advisement Center provides 
answers for general course selection 
problems. They also provide assistance 
for career decision-making, academic 
planning, scheduling and other services. 
Some of these are: 

• Information; maintaining a central 
file of information about academic 
programs and requirements on the 
College Park Campus, 

• General Assistance; giving assistance 
for different problems and concerns, 

• Trouble Shooting; helping students 
with administrative procedural 
problems, 

• Coordinated Problem-Solving; pooling 
the campus-wide system of advising to 
help solve student problems, 

• Pre-Professional Advising; offering 
programs in Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental 
and Pre-Law, 

• Credit by Exam; administering the 
program of credit-by-examination and 
the College Level Examination 
Program (CLEP). 

AUDIOVISUAL 
EQUIPMENT 

Room 1 Annapolis Hall (454-3549) 

Although no rental fee is charged, 
students must present a note from a 
university faculty or staff member 
assuming responsibility for borrowed 
equipment. Quantities are limited, so it 
is advisable to reserve equipment in 
advance. 



A wide variety of educational films are 
also available for borrowing. 

BOOKS AND SUPPLIES 

Remember the good oP days of Dick 
and Jane Readers (now, don't tell us 
you could possibly forget those 
proverbial quotes like "See Spot 
run," or the more intriguing "See 
Jane run!"?). Well, if you were 
inspired then, we know you'll be 
spellbound (but hopefully not 
povertybound) by the multitude of 
books you get to read here. And not 
just one or two, mind you, your 
professors are likely to endow you 
with lots and lots and lots ... To 
accommodate you there are several 
establishments on and off campus 
to supply you with years of reading 
pleasures and pains — for a price of 
course. 

UMporium 

(454-3222) 

Located in the basement of the Student 
Union, the UMporium carries new and 
used textbooks for all courses plus an 
extensive selection of gifts, UM clothing, 
greeting cards, houseplants, best-selling 
paperbacks and photographic, engineer- 
ing, and architectural supplies. The 
UMporium is open the first three Satur- 
days of each semester, has special hours 
during registration and during University 
College registration sponsors a shuttlebus 
from the Adult Education Center. Regular 
hours are Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m.- 
6:45 p.m., Friday, 8:30 a.m. -4:15 p.m..

Fellow Students 

Check the bulletin boards during the first 
few weeks of each semester. 

Off •campus 

There are several bookstores located near 
Rt. 1 in College Park which carry the 
complete line of University textbooks, 
both new and used, as well as school 
supplies. For your convenience, many of 
these stores have longer hours during the 
first few weeks of each semester. 

Alpha Phi Omega 
Used Bookstore 

During the first two weeks of each 
semester, you can sell your books for as 
much as 75% of the original value and 
buy books at reduced prices. The APO 
Bookstore works on a consignment basis. 
They agree to sell your textbooks for you 
and keep a small percentage of the profit. 
If the book isn't sold, you get it back. 
Location is usually in room 0124 of the 
Student Union. Subject to change. 

OFFICE OF 
CAMPUS ACTIVITIES 

1121 Student Union (454-5605) 

The Office of Campus Activities is the 
absolutely ideal place to go for which of 
the following reasons? 

A. You are in a student group and you 
need HELP. You need to raise money for 
a special program or for your daily 
operations, because you are broke (who 
isn't nowadays), or maybe you just need 
some guidance to make sure your group is 
doing everything right. 

B. Your group wants to write a consti- 
tution, work on a project, hold a meeting, 
raise funds, find where there are available 
facilities, and dabble on the side in its own 
publicity, duplicating and printing. But 
you belong to a very special group which 
insists on "doing it by the book" so you 
need a book or manual on each of those 
subjects. 

C. You would like to develop your leader- 
ship abilities and you think a workshop or 
field experience would help. 

D. None of the above: you are a firm 
believer that the word 'ideal' is an 



absolute and there are no absolutes in this 

world. 

E. All of the above. 

Answer: 'E' — The Office of Campus 

Activities is great for all of the above. In 

fact, it serves as a "catch-all" or general 

information center. Staff members will 

always steer you in the right direction. 

Some other objectives of the Office of 
Campus Activities are: 

1 . Develop and/or provide direction and 
consultation for activities and programs 
which will reflect the varied co-curricular, 
developmental, social and recreational 
needs of the campus. These activities and 
programs include any campus wide 
activities like Homecoming, Mardi-Gras, 
etc. 

2. Develop relationships with agencies, 
organizations and special interest groups, 
i.e. minority students, faculty, Greek 
students (although Greek Life is now 
fairly separate), honoraries and profess- 
ional organizations, both on a continuing 
and ad hoc basis. 

3. Maintain the appropriate records 
needed to provide monitoring and contin- 
uity for student groups; particularly in the 
areas of student accounts and student 
organizational information. The office 
works with the SGA in the dispersal of 
one half of a million dollars which goes to 
student organizations. This job is impor- 
tant because the student activities fee is 
your money. 

CAREER DEVELOPMENT 
CENTER 

Terrapin Hall (454-2813) 

"What year are you?" 

"Senior. How 'bout you?" 

"Oh, I'm a senior too. An eighth semester 

senior!" 

"You mean you've been here eight 

semesters. That's nothing special; so 

have most seniors." 

"No, man. I mean I've been here sixteen 

semesters! Eight of them I've been a 

senior, though!" 

"Hey man, what's the matter? What you 

stickin' around so long for? Nobody can 

like school that much!" 

"Oh, I've just had a little trouble deciding 

on a career. I think I've tried just about 

every one possible. Right now I'm 

planning on graduating in May with a 

degree in Basket Weaving, but I'm not 



sure if I should. I don't know where to go 
to find out about jobs! How come you get 
to graduate on time. Didn't you have any 
problems choosing a career?" 
"Of course, everybody does. But I read in 
this book I got as a freshman, I think it 
was called the Student Handbook, that 
there's this place called the Career Devel- 
opment Center which helps with that kind 
of thing. And, man, did they ever help 
me!" 

Start early — career planning is an on- 
going process! Career planning ideally 
should begin early in your academic life in 
order that you may be best prepared for 
graduation. The Career Development 
Center (CDC) is the best place to begin. 

The Career Library contains a vast 
amount of career planning material, 
occupational information, job vacancy 
listings, summer jobs, reference material 
on graduate schools and test appli- 
cations. The CDC coordinates a one- 
credit course entitled. Career Develop- 
ment and Decision Making(EDCP 108D). 
The course is open to all undergraduates. 

The CDC conducts workshops in job- 
seeking techniques, resume writing, 
government jobs, summer jobs and 
deciding on a major. Special programs 
throughout the year put students in 
direct contact with prospective employers 
and graduate school representatives. 

Other services include on-campus 
recruiting, credential services for educ- 
cation majors, and graduate school refer- 
ence files. Career Consultants for each 
academic division and undecided majors 
are available for counseling. They can be 
particularly helpful in your career 
planning activities. 




CHECK CASHING 

No-one wants a rubber check. That is, 
no-one wants a check that bounces. 
Getting a check cashed may be a difficult 
task even if you have money in the bank. 
So it's almost essential that you establish 
a checking account. 



8 



A modern employer is one who is looking 
for men and women between the ages 
of twenty one and thirty, with forty years 
of experience. 



There are a variety of banks from which 
to choose in the near vicinity. Included 
are the Chevy Chase bank located in the 
Student Union, and Suburban Trust and 
Maryland National Bank, both of which 
are located on Route 1. 

Some College Park stores which are 
sympathetic to students will cash checks 
with purchases. Most stores and busi- 
nesses in the area stop accepting checks 
toward the end of the school year because 
of the possibility of students writing bad 
checks. So be sure you have enough cash 
before final exams. 

COMMUTER AFFAIRS 

1195 Student Union (454-5275) 

Everybody's got to live somewhere . . . 
in a dorm, with parents, in a tent, on the 
road, on the mall, in parking lot no. 4. 
Individuals who do not live on-campus are 
considered commuters, and it is primarily 
for them that the Office of Commuter 
Affairs exists. Wherever you live or what- 
ever your interests, the University offers a 
variety of services, choices and experien- 
ces for you. Under the auspices of the 
Commuter Affairs Office are commuter 
programming, carpool creation, bikeway 
information, shuttle buses, the 
Off-Campus Housing Service and a host 
of other information on commuter 
activities. 

Transportation 
Alternatives 

Shuttle UM 

The Commuter Affairs Office coordinates 
shuttle bus service. Shuttle UM, which 
serves the campus and neighboring 
areas. The shuttle provides daytime 
routes to selected apartment complexes, 
evening security routes on campus, and 
call-a-ride. Information concerning these 
free services, and schedules, are available 
at the Student Union information desk 
and in the Commuter Affairs Office, 
Room 1195, Student Union. 

Carpools 

"Pooling it" is one of the greatest fads to 
hit the campus in recent years. This craze 
is being fostered by the Commuter 
Affairs Office who boasts the motto: 
"We'll find a carpool or make one!" In 
addition to cutting costs, reducing 



pollution and fuel consumption, and 
relieving campus congestion, carpoolers 
are given guaranteed preferential parking 
spaces in interior faculty/staff parking 
lots. 

Three students constitute a carpool and 
can register themselves at the Commuter 
Affairs Office, 1195 Student Union. 
Through its computerized carpool 
service, students can be put in touch with 
other students who are looking for a 
carpool. 

Off-campus Housing 

If you close out tne residence halls as a 
living option (or vice versa) and are 
looking for a place to live, the Off- 
Campus Housing Service may be able to 
help. The office maintains listings of 
furnished and unfurnished rooms, apart- 
ments and houses which are for rent in 
the area. While the service is not a com- 
plete representation of everything that is 
available in the area, it is a good place to 
start a housing search. The office also 
provides written material to facilitate 
that process. Peer advisors are prepared 
to supply information on lease require- 
ments, furniture rentals, temporary 
lodging and all other aspects of the off- 
campus living experience. 

COUNSELING CENTER 

Shoemaker Building 

8:30 a.m. -9:00 p.m. 

Monday-Thursday 

8:30 a.m. -4:30 p.m. Friday 

(454-2931) 

Unlike most high-school counseling, the 
University Counseling Center offers a 
large variety of programs designed to 
help you make full use of your potential 
while at the university. The divisions of 
the Center include: 

Personal Counseling 

Many students have personal problems 
with which counseling can help. Psychol- 
ogists provide professional counseling to 
deal with depression, anxiety, loneliness 
and other problems common to college 
students. 



Educational and 
Career Counseling 

Students who need to decide on a major 
or a future career are given an oppor- 
tunity to find out more about their 
interests and abilities through individual 
sessions with a counselor or in a group. 
Interest testing may be useful to help 
make you aware of your potential career 
leanings. The Occupational Information 
Library in the lobby of the Center offers 
details on career fields. And tape recorded 
"Conversations" with all the academic 
department heads on their fields of study 
can help point you in the right direction 
of the major you want to pursue. 
SPECIAL NOTE TO "UNDECIDED" 
FRESHMEN: If you're worried about 
your apparently directionless status 
(while everyone around you seems to be 
headed towards the certain goal of their t 
own major) — don't be. In a recent study, 
42% of "decided" UM freshmen had 
changed majors by the end of the year! 
So relax, take some time to discover your 
own interests and abilities, and let the 
decision of what-major-should-1-choose 
be made later. The choice can probably 
wait until your sophomore year. For 
academic advice, contact the Under- 
graduate Advisement Center in the 
Undergraduate Library, X2733. 

Academic Skills Work 

The Reading and Study Skills Lab can 
help with reading, writing, note-taking, 
studying, exam preparation, and other 
skills. See the RSSL receptionist, coun- 
selling center room 2102. 

Special Programs 

The Center offers many special counsel- 
ing workshop programs on such diverse 
topics as assertiveness training, indivi- 
dual vocational planning, human sexual- 
ity, exam skills, and scheduling your 
time. Brochures describing these (and 
other programs) are available in the 
lobby. 

In addition, the Center administers 
testing programs including the CLEP, 
GRE, and Miller Analogies. 



DINING SERVICES 

Director's Office (454-2901) 

Meal Ticket Information (454-2905) 

Catering (454-3539) 

The Dining Services offers a choice of 
three board plans: 19 meals, the any 
15-meal plan and the any 10-meal plan. 
Each meal plan is available 7 days per 
week. There are 3 meals per day (Mon- 
Fri.) and brunch and dinner on Sat. 
and Sun. The any 15-meal plan offers the 
most felxibility giving you the choice of 
eating 15 out of 19 meals, enabling you to 
miss meals without paying for them. For 
those students who spend a minimal 
amount of time on campus the 10-meal 
plan is offered. The University I.D. card 
is the meal card for the contract student 
and can be used in all of the four dining 
halls located on campus. 




Board plans are available to all stu- 
dents whether resident or commuter. 
The board contract is for one entire 
academic year, although the payments 
are divided by semester. A student may 
only be released from the contract if 
they withdraw from the University 
during the year. 

Menus offer a variety of entrees with a 
minimum of four selections of salads and 
desserts. The number of portions is 
unlimited. Throughout the year a series 



of special events are scheduled for those 
meal plan holders which include outdoor 
barbecues, dinner dances and dinner 
theatres at no extra charge. In addition, 
those students who desire a private 
catered meal for a special occasion, in 
lieu of the cafeteria contract feeding, will 
be entitled to discount for those board 
students attending the function. 

Cash Lines 

The department of Dining Services offers 
for those students not on the board plan 
cash facilities in the Student Union, Hill 
Dining Hall and the Cambridge Commun- 
ity Center. These cash facilities are open 
to students and guests of the university 
and offer many different meals. Those 
students who are interested in taking 
advantage of the "all you can eat" meals, 
can eat in the contract dining halls by 
buying a guest meal ticket at the Courtesy 
Desk at the entrance of the dining halls. 

Food — Other Campus 
Options 

Vending Machines 

When you're hungry and rushed, there 
are vending machines located all over the 
campus. Vending rooms in the Student 
Union, Francis Scott Key, Skinner, the 
Education building, Tydings, the Engin- 
eering kiosk and the Armory provide 
everything you need from soup and sand- 
wiches to dessert with a push-button 
convenience, including microwave ovens 
to warm up whatever you buy. 

There are machines which offer light 
snacks, drinks and ice cream in Cole 
Fieldhouse and most high rise dorms. 
The vending room in the Union stays open 
until the building closes, if you need a late 
night snack. 



Dairy 

Turner Laboratory 

(454-4521) 

For quality ice cream, go to the University 
Dairy. The ice cream is made right in 
Turner Lab, and student workers give you 
generous portions. Besides being able to 
sample all flavors of cones, sundaes and 
milkshakes, you may also buy a variety 
of hot and cold sandwiches, soft drinks, 
yogurt, and snacks. Hours are from 



8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, 
and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. 

I'.M. Dining Service's

Hillel House 
7505 Yale Avenue 
(779-7370) 

A friendly atmosphere, variety in meals 
and good food await you at the Hillel 
Kosher Dining Club. You can get three 
meals a day Monday through Saturday 
and brunch and dinner on Sunday. You 
also have the option of a partial board 
plan which includes all meals from 
Sunday dinner to Friday lunch. Hillel 
provides a welcome change from hum- 
drum meals and is a lot easier than 
cooking your own. 

Shabbat at Hillel is a very special time. 
Everyone eats together and then joins for 
services. Dress is more formal and the 
atmosphere is very traditional. 

Food Co-op

DORMITORY LIVING 

Like the commuter, the student living on 
campus can expect diversity in accommo- 
dations. Offering these different types of 
living areas, the residence hall system 
has modern high-rises, smaller resi- 
dences, and contemporary modular 
apartments. Each offers an identity of its 



Hill Area 

The oldest and most typically "Maryland" 
of the residence halls is the Hill Area. 
Situated on the main part of campus, 
these are the most convenient of Mary- 
land's housing units. Some students can 
make it from bed to class in five minutes. 
Since they are the oldest, their rooms 
tend to be smaller than in other residence 
areas, with some of the facilities suffering 
from years of wear. Antiquated wiring in 
some Hill residence halls makes their 
electrical systems subject to outages. 
They house usually around 100 people. 
On the "Hill", many of the social activities 
are organized by individual dorms and the 
Hill Area Council. 

Complexes 

The Complex halls are located along the 
north edge of campus. About 500 stu- 
dents live in each high-rise hall, and 
about 125 students in each of the three 
low-rise halls. More modern than the Hill, 
the Complexes have larger rooms and 
better overall facilities. 

In the center of each complex is a 
dining hall which not only serves food but 
doubles as a community center. The com- 
munity center is the hub for most parties. 
Alms, workshops, and programs in the 
complex. One center provides a dark- 
room and bike repair shop. 

Leonardtown 

Across Route 1, behind Frat Row, is the 
newest addition to the University's 
residence hall system. More like apart- 
ments than residence hall rooms, the 
Leonardtown Modular Units are carpeted, 
self-contained living units for four or six 
students. Each mod is furnished and 
comes with a completely equipped 
kitchen. 



Unlike the Hill or Complexes where 
students develop friendships around their 
building or floor partners, students here 
build relationships with room-mates and 
the occupants of other mods. Social life 
centers around privately planned activi- 
ties rather than the hall or complex 
programs that exist in other areas. 

As a new student, there is almost no 
chance that you can be assigned to a 
mod. Vacancies are filled on a "pull-in" 
basis from other residence halls. 

Changing Rooms 

Working through your RA, you can make 
room or hall changes soon after the 
start of the semester. However, you will 
probably find it difficult to switch (unless 
you can find someone who'll trade) 
because all rooms and beds are assigned. 
At any rate, it's a good idea to get to know 
the RA of the dorm in which you want to 
move. 




Overflow 

On-campus housing is at a premium at 
UM, and the waiting list is lengthy at the 
beginning of the year. Each fall, about 
300 new students at the top of the waiting 
list are offered a temporary room, until 
a regular room is made available. The 
average stay in overflow (temporary 
housing in studies and lounges) is up to 3 
weeks. After that time, the "no-shows" 
and drop-outs of University housing have 
made it apparent that they are leaving 
unoccupied dorm space, and overflow 
students move into the vacated rooms. 

Rules 

Students in residence halls are subject 
to all University rules and regulations. 
Most important regulations are specified 
in the contract handbook that you receive 
when you are granted housing. Other 



Resident Life policies may be found in 
your RA's office. If there are constraints 
mentioned that you can't abide by, don't 



sign up!

field. Over 1,000 organizations in the 
Washington area are looking for student 
manpower and can provide you with job 
experience, career-related skills, confi- 
dence, and contacts in your field. And, 
after graduation, you will have a better 
chance of finding a job in that chosen field

FINANCIAL AID 
AND EMPLOYMENT 

Office of Student Aid 

2130 North Administration Building 
Student Employment (454-4592) 
Scholarships (454-3046) 
Loans (454-3047) 
Grants (454-5497) 

The Office of Student Aid offers many 
programs designed to stretch and supple- 
ment a student's finances so that he/she 
may more readily attend the university. 
Over 100 sources of scholarships as well 
as loans, grants and employment are 
available to eligible students. 

Most aid comes in a "package deal" 
which consists of a combination of 
scholarship, grant, loan and/or employ- 
ment. About half of the funds are awarded 
in the form of either loans or employment. 
The deadline for consideration on any 
type of aid for the academic year is May 1 . 



The deadline for summer CWSP consider- 
ation is March 1. 

Because the office acts as a clearing 
house for a wide range of programs, the 
student is advised to familiarize himself 
with some of the basic eligibility defini- 
tions and restrictions before he sets up an 
appointment with a counselor. 

Available at the information desk of 
the Office of Student Aid are various 
publications designed to acquaint the 
student with potential areas of financial 
aid. 

Part-time Opportunities 
on Campus 

On-campus jobs are the most sought- 
after type of employment. Although the 
pay scale for campus jobs is usually a bit 
less than for off-campus jobs of compar- 
able responsibility, on-campus jobs 
usually fit more comfortably into class 
and study schedules. However, caution is 
still advisable in estimating how much of 
a work load to take on. It's best to inte- 
grate work gradually into a class sched- 
ule. If later in the semester time remains 
open, then add more working hours. 

Campus jobs are limited in number, so 
competition is keen. Most student 
positions for any one Fall semester are 
usually filled by early August. Situations, 
however, have a habit of changing. 
Patience and perspective, then, become 
effective tools in finding a job on campus. 

To apply for a campus job, one wants to 
contact the appropriate office. Although 
not an exhaustive list, here are some 
places to start: 

Office of Student Aid 

(Student Employment Division) 
2130 North Administration Building 
Student Employment (454-4592) 

Although its primary task is the mainten- 
ance of the College Work-Study Program, 
the Student Employment Division of the 
Student Aid Office operates a rather 
extensive off- and on-campus referral 
system. The Career Development Center 
and the Office of Experiential Learning 
cooperate with Student Employment 
towards the goal of providing career 
development opportunities through 
on-the-job training programs. Campus 
employers such as the Hill Residence 
Area and the Dining Services list part 
time jobs with this office. 



Outside its offices in the North Admin- 
istration Building a bulletin board main- 
tains up to date job opprtunities infor- 
mation for on- and off-campus. Available 
at the office is a job directory which also 
lists current openings. 

Student Employment also receives 
notices of internships and other educa- 
tional summer job programs around the 
country. 

Career Development 
Center 

Terrapin Hall (454-2813) 

The Career Library at the Career Devel- 
opment Center contains a vast amount of 
occupational information, job vacancy 
listings and summer jobs. 

Office of Commuter Affairs 

1 195 Student Union (454-5274) 

Because this office coordinates the 
Campus Shuttle Bus system, prospective 
bus drivers should apply here. Appli- 
cants must have a valid class "C" Mary- 
land drivers license. This office also hires 
students for various part-time office 
positions. 

Department of 
Resident Life 

3rd floor. North Administration 
Building(454-2711) 

Resident Life hires all student staff who 
work in residence halls: RA's, reception- 
ists, security checkers, maintenance and 
ground workers, etc. The actual inter- 
views are conducted in each residential 
community for the positions open in that 
community. You can get information on 
application dates and procedures from 
your RA or community office. 

Orientation Office 

1 195 Student Union (454-5752) 

The Orientation Staff is hired through 
this office. The jobs are primarily for the 
summer but the pay and benefits are 
excellent. Beginning in April the office 
often takes on extra employees to help 
process Orientation reservations. Appli- 
cations for the summer Student Advisor 
positions are usually available in October.

Departmental Offices 

As work loads and money permit, depart- 
mental offices often add student employ- 
ees to their staffs. Ability to type and 
experience with standard office equip- 
ment is an invaluable aid in getting one of 
these positions. Research, clerical and 
labor positions are the ones opening up 
most often. 

Try your own department or college 
first, for majors are usually afforded 
priority. If that fails, there are over 100 
departmental offices on campus. 
Someone must need help. 

Dining Services 

A major employer of students on campus 
is the Department of Dining Services. 
A variety of jobs are available and the 
hours often are compatible with class 
schedules. Opportunities are available 
within the Cambridge, Denton, Ellicott 
and Hill Dining Halls, and in addition, 
there are numerous openings at the Pub, 
Student Union Food Service, Bake Shop 
and in the Maintenance Department 
assisting skilled mechanics. Students 
should seek employment by going to the 
unit of their choice and completing an 
employment application. It is necessary 
that workers be available for a minimum 
of 10 hours per week. While many stu- 
dents return to work with the Department 
for the entire college career, opportunities 
for employment are continuously 
opening. 

Workships are available for students 
who wish to work to pay off a board bill. 
Students can arrange for a workship by 
first obtaining employment in a Dining 
Hall, and requesting a workship. The 
Dining Hall Manager will inform the 
applicant of the hours necessary to work 
to complete the workship obligation by 
the end of the semester. 

Faculty 

One of the most valuable resources for 
jobs are the faculty. They maintain 
contacts with colleagues in the area, 
many of whom, working with the govern- 
ment or private business, are in a position 
to hire. Also, their job leads often involve 
positions directly related to professional 
interests. You'd be surprised how inter- 
ested faculty are in helping students find 
preprofessional employment. 



Libraries 

Each of the six libraries on campus hires 
student employees for both the school 
year as well as the summer. Applications 
should be filed with each individual 
library. Summer jobs go first to the 
regular employees who want them. 



Student Union 

The Union has about 100 students' 
positions for people with and without 
office skills. The Union is open about 
fifteen hours a day, seven days a week, 
so Union jobs could fit almost any sche- 
dule. For more information, go to the 
Union's administrative offices, Room 
1105, or call 454-2807. 

Work Study 

College Work-Study is a federal program 
designed to help needy full-time students 
find part-time employment. Students 
work in offices on and off campus for a 
maximum of 15 hours a week during the 
semester and 40 hours a week during the 
summer and semester breaks of one week 
or longer. Pay for work-study is usually 
above the minimum wage. There is an 
effort made to match a student's skills or 
interests with a particular office. 

To apply for work-study, check with the 
Office of Student Aid Student Employ- 
ment Section, 2130N North Adminis- 
tration Building, 454-4592. 

FREE UNIVERSITY 

Jim Frid, Director 
(454-HELP) 

The Free University is an alternative 
learning experience, offering non-credit 
courses on a broad range of topics. 
Courses typically include auto mechan- 
ics, guitar, philosophy, creative living, 
yoga, slimnastics, Yiddish, dance, and 
numerous other intriguing topics. A three 
dollar registration fee entitles you to take 
as many Free U. courses as you like.

GREEK LIFE OFFICE 

1 121, Student Union (454-2736) 

The Office of Greek Life coordinates the 
integration of the social fraternities 
and sororities with the rest of the campus 
community. It works with the officers and 
members of these groups to advise and 
assist them in getting the most out of the 
"Greek" experience. "Greek Life" refers 
to the Greek letter societies that make up 
the fraternity and sorority system. 

If you have any questions about frater- 
nities and sororities, just stop in. 

Greek Housing 

Fraternity and Sorority houses provide 
living spaces for 1,800 Maryland stu- 
dents. Living in a "Greek House" provides 
a small group living experience for any- 
where from 10 to 60 students. It is a 
chance for you to learn how to manage all 
aspects of a home from overseeing the 
physical facilities to operating a kitchen. 
Although most students living in the 
houses are members of the Greek com- 
munity, there are often spaces available 
for non-members. If you're interested, 
contact the Office of Greek Life. 

HEALTH CENTER 

The University Health Center is located 
on Campus Drive directly across from the 
Student Union. Both graduate and under- 
graduate students are eligible for health 
care at the Health Center. Services pro- 
vided include both emergency and routine 
medical care, mental health evaluation 
and treatment, health education, labora- 
tory, x-ray, gynecological services, and 
upon referral from a Health Center 
physician, dermatological services and 
orthopedic services. 

Students can best be seen by calling 
the Health Center for an appointment. 
Students who are injured or are too ill 
to wait for an appointment will be seen on 
a walk-in basis. Emergencies always 
receive highest priority. 

The Health Center is open 8:00 a.m.- 
10:00 p.m. weekdays and 
11:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m. on weekends with 
acute illnesses taking priority on evenings 
and weekends. Emergencies are seen 24 
hours a day. 

Upon payment of the health fee at 
registration, a student becomes eligible

disrupts, disturbs or delays the proceed- 
ings. Should the student charged engage 
in conduct that impedes the progress of 
the hearing, or makes a fair hearing im- 
possible, the Board may pass an order 
suspending such student from the Univer- 
sity, and such suspension shall thereaftei 
continue until after the hearing, or any 
adjournment thereof, shall have been 
heard and decided. In addition, the Board 
may adjourn the proceeding, and in such 
a case the suspension of such student 
(whether made by the chancellor in 
accordance with Paragraph 2 hereof or 
by the Board in accordance with this 
subparagraph 5(a)) shall continue until 
after the conclusion of the adjourned 
hearing and the time for appeal therefrom 
has expired. 

(b) A pending criminal or civil trial 
involving the accused student will not be 
considered grounds for postponement of 
the disciplinary hearing, unless the date 
of the judicial trial conflicts with the date 
of the University hearing. 

(c) A student may be represented at a 
hearing before the Board by an advisor, 
who may be an attorney. The Board may 
be assisted in the conduct of the hearing 
by a legal advisor (either the director of 
the Judiciary Office or some other 
qualified individual). 

(d) The student or his advisor shall 
have the opportunity to question all 
witnesses, to present witnesses in his own 
behalf, to present any other evidence, and 
to make an opening and closing 
statement. 

(e) The person who shall bring the 
charges under these rules shall be the 
chancellor or the acting chancellor. 
Evidence against a student shall be 
presented by a person designated by the 
chancellor. The person presenting 

the case for the University, the Univer- 
sity's attorney, and the Board shall 
have the opportunity to question all 
witnesses and to present witnesses and 
evidence relating to the charge specified 
in the notice. 

(f) Formal rules of evidence shall not 
be applicable to disciplinary hearings, 
and any evidence or testimony which the 
Board believes to be relevant to a fair 
determination of the charges specified 

in the notice may be admitted. Hearsay 
evidence or documents not verified may 
be admitted for the purpose of explaining 



or corroborating other evidence but shall 
not be sufficient to support a determina- 
tion of the truth of the charges unless 
such hearsay or documentary evidence 
would be admissible in judicial 
proceedings. 

(g) A student charged under this Part II 
shall be presumed innocent, and the 
burden of proof shall be the responsibility 
of the University. A student charged 
under this Part II shall not be required 
to testify before the Board, and his 
failure or refusal to so testify shall not be 
construed as an admission against 
interest. 

(h) A full and complete record shall be 
made of the proceedings before the 
Board. A recording or other suitable 
device shall be used. A copy of this record 
shall be supplied to the student. A student 
may arrange to have a court steno- 
grapher present at his own expense. 

(i) Rulings on evidence and all other 
matters relating to the hearing shall be 
made by the Board, and such ruling 
shall be binding upon all parties. 

0) If a student fails to appear for a 
hearing after having been duly served 
with notice thereof as required by Para- 
graph 3 hereof, the hearing shall be 
adjourned, and in such case the sus- 
pension of such student (if the student has 
been suspended) shall continue until 
after the conclusion of the adjourned 
hearing and the appeal therefrom, if any, 
shall have been heard and decided. If 
the Board determines, upon clear and 
convincing evidence, that the accused 
student has willfully failed to appear for 
the hearing, the Board may order the 
immediate suspension of such student 
from the University. 

(k) If a student leaves the hearing 
before its conclusion without the per- 
mission of the Board, the hearing shall be 
adjourned, and in such case the sus- 
pension of such student (if the student 
has been suspended) shall continue until 
after the conclusion of the adjourned 
hearing and the appeal therefrom, if 
any, shall have been heard and decided. 
Withdrawal by a student from the hearing 
shall be grounds for his temporary sus- 
pension from the University by the Board. 

(1) Students charged with misconduct 
arising from a single incident or occur- 
rence may have their hearings joined 
either at the request of the students 



involved or at the request of the chan- 
cellor. Requests for joint hearings shall 
be decided by the Board. The Board may 
sever a student's case from others 
involved in a joint hearing at any stage in 
the proceedings, and without affecting the 
progress of other cases involved, where 
it appears necessary to insure a fair 
hearing for all. 

6. If a hearing has been adjourned for 
cause, it shall be re-scheduled within ten 
(10) calendar days from its originally 
scheduled date. No notice of such ad- 
journed hearing must be given to the 
student involved, but a reasonable effort 
to so notify him shall be made. At any 
adjourned hearing, the rules established 
in paragraph 4 hereof shall control. 

7. The Board shall make its findings 
based upon substantial evidence pro- 
duced before it. Such findings shall be 
contained in a written report, which shall 
be submitted to the chancellor of the 
campus, within five (5) days of the close 
of the hearing. The report shall contain: 

(a) A finding that the student did or 
did not commit the acts charged; 

(b) If the finding is that the student 
did commit the acts charged, a further 
finding that the acts committed did or 
did not constitute a violation of the rules 
established in Section C of this Part II; 

(c) If the finding is that the student did 
commit the act charged, and if the 
student is the recipient of funds under a 
program enumerated in Section 497 of 
the Education Amendments of 1972 
(Public Law 90-575), a further finding as 
to whether the act was of a serious nature 
and contributed to a substantial disrup- 
tion of the administration of the Univer- 
sity so as to warrant discontinuance for 

a period of two years, any further pay- 
ment to, or for the direct benefit of the 
student under any of the programs 
specified in the aforesaid Section 497 of 
the Education Amendments of 1972; and 

(d) A penalty, if any, to be imposed. 

8. If the Board finds that a penalty should 
be imposed as provided by paragraph 
7(d) hereof, it may invoke the following 
sanctions: 

(a) disciplinary reprimand, or 

(b) conduction probation, or 

(c) dismissal from University housing, 
or 

(d) disciplinary probation, or 

(e) suspension from the University, or 



38 



(f) expulsion from the University. 
If the Board imposes the sanctions pro- 
vided by sub-prargraphs (a) to (d) of this 
paragraph, then the prior suspension of 
the accused student, if any, shall be 
lifted, and the continued discipline of the 
student shall be as provided in the order 
of the Board. If the Board finds the 
accused student innocent of the offense 
with which he was charged, his tem- 
porary suspension, if any, shall be lifted. 
In all cases where a temporary suspension 
has been lifted, the student shall be given 
an opportunity to complete interrupted 
academic work. In invoking the power to 
sanction a student as provided hereby, 
the Board may consider any prior discip- 
linary action against the student involved. 

9. In the event that the Board shall fail 
to submit a report to the chancellor of its 
findings and recommendations within 
seven (7) calendar days after the close of 
the hearing, then the chancellor shall 
promptly give notice to the accused 
student and appoint another University 
Judicial Board as required by these rules, 
and thereafter a new hearing shall be 
held by such successor Board, all in 
accordance with the rules contained in 
this Part II. 

10. Within ten (10) calendar days after 
the notice of the Board's decision the 
student may appeal that decision. If no 
such appeal is taken, the order of the 
Board shall be final and conclusive. Such 
appeal shall be noted by filing a written 
request therefore with the chancellor 
which shall state the grounds upon which 
the appeal is taken and shall also state 
the address of the appellant, which 
address shall be used by the appellate 
agency for the service of notice as re- 
quired by Paragraph 11 hereof. If the 
student shall have been suspended, any 
such appeal shall continue that sus- 
pension, notwithstanding the sanctions, 
if any, imposed by the Board as provided 
by Paragraph 8 hereof. The student 
charged shall have the option to appeal 
either to: 

(a) the chancellor of the Campus, or 

(b) the president of the University, or 

(c) an arbitrator as provided for by 
Paragraph 12 hereof. 

11. All appeals, as provided by Para- 
graph 10 hereof, shall be taken upon the 
record made before the Board. No testi- 
mony or other evidence shall be intro- 



duced before the appellate officer. How- 
ever, the parties may submit written 
briefs stating their contentions concerning 
the case and may be represented before 
the appellate officer by a representative 
or legal counsel who may present oral 
arguments on their behalf. The appeal 
shall be heard within fourteen (14) days 
after it has been noted in accordance with 
Paragraph 10 hereof. The student appel- 
lant shall be sent a notice of the time and 
place for the hearing of the appeal; 
the requirement of notification contained 
in this paragraph shall be satisfied by the 
mailing thereof to the student-appellant 
at his address shown on his notice of 
appeal as required by Paragraph 10 
hereof. The appellate officer may affirm, 
modify, revise or reverse the decision of 
the Board, or he may remand the case to 
the Board for further proceedings not 
inconsistent with its findings, but he may 
not increase the sanctions imposed by the 
Board. The decision of the appellate 
officer shall be made in writing; it shall 
be made within ten (10) days after he has 
heard the case; his decision shall be final 
and binding upon the parties; the decision 
shall be communicated in writing to the 
accused student by the appellate officer 
and to the parents or legal guardians of 
the student if he is under the age of 
twenty-one (21) years. 

12. The accused student may appeal 
the decision of the Board to an impartial 
arbitrator appointed directly by the 
National Center for Dispute Settlement of 
the American Arbitration Association 
(NCDS). Such appointment may be 
challenged by either party for good cause. 
The NCDS shall decide the question of 
good cause. In addition to the require- 
ments of Paragraph 10 hereof, the 
student shall initiate the arbitration by 
mailing or delivering in person two copies 
of a notice of a desire to arbitrate to the 
National Center for Dispute Settlement, 
1815 H Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 
20006, which notice shall constitute a 
contract on behalf of the student that he 
shall be bound thereafter by the decision 
of the National Center for Dispute Settle- 
ment. The arbitration shall be conducted 
in accordance with the Community 
Dispute Settlement Rules of the National 
Center for Dispute Settlement to the 
extent such rules are not inconsistent 
with the provisions of these rules. Where 



any such inconsistency may exist, these 
rules shall be controlling. Questions of 
such inconsistency shall be decided by 
the arbitrator. The costs of the arbitration 
proceeding shall be borne equally by the 
student and the University. A student who 
is unable to pay his share of these costs 
may petition the University to bear the 
whole cost of the arbitration, provided 
that the petition plus supporting docu- 
ments is submitted to the chancellor 
for his decision prior to the filing of a 
notice of a desire to arbitrate.

III. Selected Policy 
Statements 

The following is not intended to be an 
exhaustive statement of all University 
policies and regulations. The appropriate 
University office should be contacted for 
information regarding specific activities 
or use of specific facilities. 

A. Policy On 
Amplifying Equipment 

(As adopted by University Senate, 
June 2. 1970) 

1. Public address systems, loudspeakers 
and other forms of sound amplifying 
equipment may be used in any of the 
following outdoor areas of the campus: 

(a) Physical education and intramural 
field between University Boulevard and 
parking area 1. 

(b) North Mall between Campus Drive 
and Washington-Baltimore Boulevard. 

(c) South Mall between Regents Drive 
and Washington-Baltimore Boulevard. 

(d) Athletic practice fields east of 
Byrd Stadium. 

2. The use of public address systems, 
loudspeakers and other forms of sound 
amplifying equipment must be restricted 
in the Central Mall area between 8 a.m. 
and 6 p.m. on class days in order to mini- 
mize the likelihood of disturbing classes 
and other academic activities. However, 
such equipment may be used in the 
Central Mall during these hours if the 
procedures outlined below are followed. 
All equipment used in Central Mall must 
be secured through the Office of the 
Director of the Physical Plant or through 
the S.G.A. office. 



(a) Public address systems, loud- 
speakers and other forms of sound 
amplifying equipment (except in "b" 
below), must be secured from the Office 
of the Director of Physical Plant, South 
Administration Building, by requesting 
such equipment in writing at least twelve 
(12) hours in advance. Any University 
student or organization which fulfills the 
following requirements will be permitted 
to use the amplifying equipment. 

(1) An individual must be current- 
ly enrolled as a student, part-time 
or full-time, at the University or 
currently employed by the 
University. 

(2) Any organization or activity 
must have been recognized by the 
SGA Legislature and must at the 
time of the request have official 
recognition as a University 
organization or activity. 

(b) Bullhorns will be available upon 
surrender of the I. D. card, in the SGA 
office and in the Office of the Director of 
the Physical Plant. Bullhorns secured in 
this manner may be used on the Central 
Mall without prior permission. Any indi- 
vidual may use only one bullhorn at a 
time. 

3. Public address systems, loudspeakers 
and other forms of sound amplifying 
equipment may be used in outdoor areas 
of the campus other than those listed 
above (sections 1 and 2) by securing 
approval in writing at least 5 days in 
advance from the Facilities Use Com- 
mittee by application to the Office of the 
Director of the Physical Plant. Approval 
will be granted for use of amplifying 
equipment in these areas only if there is 
a high probability that the planned activ- 
ity will not disrupt or disturb other Univer- 
sity activities or if the area has not been 
previously reserved. Permission will be 
granted to use amplifying equipment in 
the vicinity of residence halls only upon 
specific written request of the student 
government of the residence halls 
affected. 

4. Individual students or organizational 
representatives using amplifying equip- 
ment must accept responsibility for any 
complaints or disturbances or disruption 
received from persons in University 
academic and/or residence buildings. 



B. Policy On 
Demonstrations 

(As adopted by University Senate, 
June 2, 1970) 

I. General Statement 

a. The University of Maryland cher- 
ishes the right of individual students or 
student groups to dissent and to demon- 
strate, provided such demonstrations do 
not disrupt normal campus activities, or 
infringe upon the rights of others. 

b. On the other hand, the University 
will not condone behavior which violates 
the freedom of speech, choice, assembly, 
or movement of other individuals or 
groups. In short, responsible dissent 
carries with it a sensitivity for the civil 
rights of others. 

c. Accordingly, the University will 
take whatever steps it deems necessary to 

(1) protect the right of any indi- 
vidual or group to demonstrate 
and publicly proclaim any view, 
however unpopular; 

(2) protect the freedom of speech, 
assembly and movement of any 
individual or group which is the 
object of demonstrations. 

To achieve the foregoing objectives the 

following guidelines have been developed 

for operation at College Park: 
• 

II . Guidelines For General 
Demonstrations 

a. Unscheduled demonstrations, "teach- 
ins," rallies, or equivalent activities may 
be held by recognized university organi- 
zations and activities, full or part-time 
students, and current employees of the 
University in the areas defined below 
provided that the activity does not 
interfere with any function for which that 
space has been reserved in advance. 

1. The Central Mall 

2. Physical education and intramural 
field between University Boulevard and 
parking area 1. 

3. Athletic practice fields east of Byrd 
Stadium. 

4. North Mall between Campus Drive 
and Washington-Baltimore Boulevard. 

5. South Mall between Regents Drive 
and Washington-Baltimore Boulevard. 

All activities in these areas must be 
conducted so as to avoid interference with 
the regularly scheduled functions of the 



40 



library and/or classrooms adjacent to the 
area and in compliance with the pro- 
visions contained in Ilg, 1-8. 

Failure to reserve space will not invali- 
date the privilege of conducting the 
appropriate activity. However, in the 
event of two or more groups desiring to 
use a given space, an approved space 
reservation will take precedence over an 
unscheduled activity. If two or more 
groups desire a space when no reser- 
vation has been made, the first come, first 
served principle will apply, 
b. Recognized University organizations 
and activities, full or part-time students, 
and current employees of the University 
who wish to schedule a demonstration, 
"teach-in," rally, or equivalent activity, 
may request the space through the 
facilities reservation procedure up to 24 
hours in advance. Demonstrations will 
be permitted in the locations outlined in 
Ha, above, unless the space has pre- 
viously been reserved or is in use for 
academic activities or intercollegiate 
athletic team practices. Demonstrations 
may be held at other locations on the 
campus subject to approval by the Vice 
Chancellor for Student Affairs. Students 
who participate in demonstrations which 
have not been approved may be con- 
sidered in violation of University policy. 
(Except as provided in Ha, above.) 

c. Demonstrations, rallies, or "teach- 
ins" may be conducted in or adjacent to 
any residential building with the specific 
written concurrence of the student gov- 
ernment of the unit or area concerned. 
Any such rallies, demonstrations or 
"teach-ins" which may be authorized by 
the appropriate student government must 
conform to the general procedures con- 
tained in Hg, 1-8. 

d. Demonstrations in the form of parades 
on streets may be conducted with the 
specific approval of route and time 
secured 48 hours in advance from the 
University Public Safety and Security 
Office. 

e. Although groups may sponsor or 
organize demonstrations, rallies, "teach- 
ins," or picketing activities, the fact of 
group sponsorship or organization in 

no way relieves individuals of the respons- 
ibility for their own conduct, and each 
individual participating in such activities 
is accountable for compliance with the 
provisions of this policy. 



f. Persons not members of the University 
student body, faculty or staff may partici- 
pate in demonstrations, rallies, picketing, 
teach-ins or equivalent activities only 
upon invitation by a bona fide student, 
faculty or staff member. All non-students 
are obligated to the terms of this policy 
during participation in such activities. 
Since persons not students, faculty or 
staff members are not subject to Univer- 
sity discipline procedures, failure to 
comply with terms of this policy may 
result in action under terms of appropriate 
Maryland law. 

g. In addition to the above provisions, 
the following guidelines will apply to all 
demonstrations. 

1 . Reasonable access to and exit from 
any office or building must be maintained. 
The right-of-way on public streets and 
sidewalks will be maintained. 

2. Demonstrators will not attempt to 
force the cancellation or interruption of 
any event sponsored by a University office 
or by a faculty or student group or by any 
group authorized to use University 
facilities. 

3. Classes or other educational activ- 
ities in classroom buildings and the 
library will not be disrupted. 

4. The use of public address systems, 
loudspeakers, etc. , in the vicinity of 
academic and residence buildings will 
follow procedures set forth above. 

5. Demonstrations may be carried on 
inside of the University buildings only as 
provided in Sections He and 4 or with 
approval of the Facilities Use Committee 
as outlined in the University General and 
Academic Regulations. 

6. Where an invited speaker is the 
object of protest, students and faculty 
may demonstrate outside the building 
where the lecture will take place. Demon- 
strators who wish to enter the building 
must do so as members of the audience 
and must give the speaker a respectful 
hearing. Signs, placards or other para- 
phernalia associated with a demon- 
stration will not be carried into the 
building. 

7. University property must be pro- 
tected at all times. 

8. The safety and well-being of mem- 
bers of the University community col- 
lectively and individually must be pro- 
tected at all times. 

h. Complaints received from users of the 



Library or classrooms adjacent to the 
defined areas (Ha.) will be grounds for 
disciplinary action against individuals 
and/or groups sponsoring or partici- 
pating in rallies, "teach-ins" or demon- 
strations in these areas. 

III. Guidelines For Demonstrations In 
Connection With Placement Programs 

a. Anyone wishing to question or protest 
the on-campus presence of any recruiting 
organization should contact the Director 
of the Career Development Center or his 
representative in advance. 

b. Should any member of the University 
Community wish to discuss or protest the 
internal policies of any recruiting organi- 
zation, the Director of the Career Devel- 
opment Center must be contacted for 
assistance in communicating directly with 
the appropriate representatives of said 
organization. 

c. Demonstration guidelines outlined in 
Section Ilg. 1-8 are applicable. 

d. Demonstrations in conjunction with 
placement programs conducted in the 
career Development Center's Terrapin 
Hall facility or other facility shall be 
considered not to infringe upon the rights 
of others and the normal functioning of 
placement programs provided that 
demonstrations are conducted outside of 
the facility and do not interfere with free 
and open access to the Career Develop- 
ment Center facilities by those students, 
faculty, staff, and visitors who wish to 
conduct business within the framework of 
established placement programs. 

IV. Special Guideline Pertaining to the 
Student Union 

a. No demonstrations, rallies, "teach- 
ins" or equivalent activities may be held 
in the lobbies or corridors of the Student 
Union. 

b. Demonstrations may be held in 
assigned rooms of the Student Union by 
recognized student organizations follow- 
ing procedures for reserving space which 
have been outlined by the Student Union 
Board. 

V. Guidelines For Picketing 

a. Legal Rights and Limitations. 
Orderly picketing is a legally established 
form of expression which recognizes the 
individual's right of free expression 
subject only to such reasonable limita- 
tions as are imposed by State legislation 



41 



and University regulations. These limita- 
tions are intended to protect the rights of 
the picketer, the student body and the 
public with particular concern for safety, 
preservation of normal academic life and 
order, and the protection of persons and 
property, 
b. Conduct of Picketers. 

1 . Picketers are subject to those 
regulations listed above in Section II, g, 
1-8. 

2. Picketers will not disrupt any 
University activity by making excessive 
noise in the vicinity of any University 
building. 

3. The University Health Service is 
off-limits to picketers because special 
silence and other welfare and safety 
factors are involved. 

C. Alcoholic Beverage 
Policy and Procedures 

Policy 

Regulations forbid unauthorized possess- 
ion, use or distribution of alcoholic 
beverages on or in University property. 
University policy is consistent with State 
and County laws and restricts on-Campus 
use of alcoholic beverages in specified 
areas. 

Policies Specific to an Event 

1 . Alcoholic beverages may not be 
possessed, consumed, or distributed on 
the campus except where written approv- 
al has been obtained for the event. 

2. The event must be sponsored by a 
recognized alumni, faculty /staff, or 
student group, and be duly registered 
with the appropriate space reservation 
office. 

4. All applicable State, County, and local 
alcoholic beverage and tax laws must be 
accommodated. Sponsor or event mana- 
ger shall insure the following: 

a. No one under the age of 18 shall be 
served or sold alcoholic beverages of any 
kind. 

b. No one under the age of 21 shall be 
served or sold liquor. 

c. All sales cease promptly at 
2:00 a.m. 

d. No person judged to be intoxicated 
by the sales attendant or his supervisor 
may be served any alcoholic beverage. 

e. Maintenance of reasonable order 
and decorum with special concern for 



the avoidance of becoming a nuisance to 
non-participants, including both on- 
campus and off-campus communities. 

5. When alcoholic beverages are to be 
sold or are obtained from a distributor, 
a license is required and specific written 
approval for the event must be obtained 
from the Office of Campus Activities. 
The Office of Campus Activities may 

in some instances require approval from 
the Concessions Committee. 

6. Appropriate planning and implemen- 
tation for the event involving the sale of 
alcoholic beverages includes: The 
securing of a license from the Board of 
License Commissioners, in Hyattsville, 
at least five days before an event. An 
approved Space Reservation form must 
accompany the request for the license. 
Acquisition of a license will legally place 
on the person signing the license appli- 
cation, the responsibility for adherence 
to all the provisions of applicable laws 
during the event. 

Exceptions to this Policy 

Private functions not involving the sale 
of alcoholic beverages; and functions 
sponsored by non-campus groups con- 
tracting with the campus self-support 
agencies for facilities and services are 
specific exceptions from these proce- 
dures. Permission to serve alcoholic 
beverages must be obtained from the 
person or the department responsible 
for the operation of the facility. 

Violations 

Failure to comply with the University 
policy or State and County alcoholic 
beverage laws may result in judicial 
action and restriction on further use of 
University facilities. Violations of State 
and County laws will be reported to the 
appropriate civil authorities. 

D. Campus Traffic Rules 
and Regulations 
(Academic Year 1977-78) 

These regulations apply to all who drive 
motor vehicles on any part of the campus 
at College Park. Furthermore, these 
regulations are published by the Motor 
Vehicle Administration. These rules are 
subject to change during the course of 
the academic year, and it is the students' 
responsibility to be aware of these 



changes. Updated copies of the Campus 
Traffic Rules and Regulations may be 
obtained at any time from the Motor 
Vehicle Administration free of charge. 

IV. Policy of the 
University of Maryland on 
Access to and Release of 
Student Data/ 
Information 

General Statement 

The University of Maryland has the 
responsibility for effectively supervising 
any access to and/or release of official 
data/information about its students. 
Certain items of information about 
individual students are fundamental to the 
educational process and must be re- 
corded. This recorded information con- 
cerning students must be used only for 
clearly-defined purposes, must be safe- 
guarded and controlled to avoid violations 
of personal privacy, and must be appro- 
priately disposed of when the justification 
for its collection and retention no longer 
exists. 

In this regard, the university is commit- 
ted to protecting to the maximum extent 
possible the right of privacy of all individ- 
uals about whom it holds information, 
records and files. Access to and release of 
such records is restricted to the student 
concerned, to others with the student's 
written consent, to officials within the 
University, to a court of competent 
jurisdiction and otherwise pursuant to 
law. 

Access 

All official information collected and 
maintained in the University identifiable 
with an individual student will be made 
available for inspection and review at the 
written request of that student subject to 
certain exceptions. 

For purposes of access to records at the 
University of Maryland, a student enrolled 
(or formerly enrolled) for academic credit 
or audit at any campus of the University 
shall have access to official records 
concerning him on any campus on which 
he is or has been enrolled. 

The personal files of members of the 
faculty and staff which concern students, 
including private correspondence, and 
notes which refer to students, are not 



42 



regarded as official records of the Univer- 
sity. This includes notes intended for the 
personal use of the faculty and never 
intended to be official records of the 
University. 

A request for general access to all 
official records, files and data maintained 
by a campus, must be made in writing to 
the coordinator of records or to other 
person(s) as designated by the chancellor 
at that particular campus. A request for 
access to official data maintained in a 
particular office may be made to the 
administrative head of that office. 

When a student (or former student) 
appears at a given office and requests 
access to the university records about 
himself, 

1 . The student must provide proper 
identification verifying that he is the 
person whose record is being accessed. 

2. The designated staff person(s) must 
supervise the review of the contents of the 
record with the student. 

3. Inspection and review shall be per- 
mitted within a period not to exceed 45 
days from the date of the student's 
request. 

4. The student will be free to make notes 
concerning the contents but no material 
will be removed from the record at the 
time. 

Under normal circumstances, the 
student is entitled to receive a copy only 
of his permanent academic record. A 
reasonable administrative fee may be 
charged for providing copies of this or 
other items. 

Record keeping personnel and mem- 
bers of the faculty and staff with adminis- 
trative assignment may have access to 
records and files for internal educational 
purposes as well as for routinely neces- 
sary clerical, administrative and statis- 
tical purposes as required by the duties of 
their jobs. The name and position of the 
official responsible for the maintenance of 
each type of educational record may be 
obtained from the coordinator of records 
or other person appointed by the chan- 
cellor on each campus. 

Any other access allowed by law must 
be recorded showing the legitimate 
educational or other purpose and the 
signature of the person gaining access. 
The student concerned shall be entitled 
to review this information. 



Release of Information 

Except with the prior written consent of 
the student (or former student) con- 
cerned, or as required by federal and state 
law, no information in any student file 
may be released to any individual (includ- 
ing parents, spouse, or other students) 
or organization with the exception of 
information defined as "Public 
Information." 

When disclosure of any personally 
identifiable data/information from 
University records about a student is 
demanded pursuant to court order or 
lawfully issued subpoena, the staff mem- 
ber receiving such order shall immedi- 
ately notify the student concerned in 
writing prior to compliance with such 
order or subpoena. 

Data/information from University 
records about students will be released 
for approved research purposes only if 
the identity of the student involved is 
fully protected. 

A record will be kept of all such 
releases. 

Information from University records 
may be released to appropriate persons 
in connection with an emergency if the 
knowledge of such information is neces- 
sary to protect the health or safety of a 
student or other persons. 



Public Information 

The following items are considered public 
data/information and may be disclosed 
by the University in response to inquiries 
concerning individual students, whether 
the inquiries are in person, in writing or 
over the telephone. 

1. Name 

2. Affirmation of whether currently 
enrolled 

3. Campus location 

Unless the student has officially filed 
a request with the campus registrar 
that disclosure not be made without his 
written permission, the following items in 
addition to those above are considered 
public information and may be included 
in appropriate university/campus direc- 
tories and publications and may be 
disclosed by designated staff members on 
each campus in response to inquiries 
concerning individual students, whether 
the inquiries are in person, in writing, or 
over the telephone. 



1. School, college, department, major 
or division 

2. Dates of enrollment 

3. Degrees received 

4. Honors received 

5. Local address and phone number 

6. Home address (permanent) 

7. Participation in officially recognized 
activities and sports 

8. Weight and height of members of 
athletic teams 

The release of public information as 
described above may be limited by an 
individual campus policy. 



Letters of Appraisal 

Candid appraisals and evaluations of 
performance and potential are an essen- 
tial part of the educational process. 
Clearly, the provision of such information 
to prospective employers, to other 
educational institutions, or to other 
legitimately concerned outside indivi- 
duals and agencies is necessary and in 
the interest of the particular student. 

Data/information which was part of 
University records prior to January 1, 
1975 and which was collected and main- 
tained as confidential information, will 
not be disclosed to students. Should a 
student desire access to a confidential 
letter of appraisal received prior to 
January 1, 1975, the student shall be 
advised to have the writer of that apprais- 
al notify, in writing, the concerned 
records custodian of the decision as to 
whether or not the writer is willing to 
have the appraisal made available for 
the student's review. Unless a written 
response is received approving a change 
of status in the letter, the treatment of the 
letter as a confidential document shall 
continue. 

Documents of appraisal relating to 
students collected by the University or 
any department or office of the University 
on or after January 1, 1975 will be main- 
tained confidentially only if a waiver of the 
right of access has been executed by the 
student. In the absence of such a waiver, 
all such documents will be available for 
student inspection and review. 

All references, recommendations, 
evaluations and other written notations 
or comments, originated prior to January 
1, 1975, where the author by reason of 
custom, common practice, or specific 



43 



assurance thought or had good reason to 
believe that such documents and 
materials would be confidential, will be 
maintained as confidential, unless the 
author consents in writing to waive such 
confidentiality. 

If a student files a written waiver with 
the department or office concerned, 
letters of appraisal pursuant to that 
waiver will be maintained confidentially. 
Forms will be available for this purpose. 

Challenges to the Record 

Every student shall have the opportunity 
to challenge any item in his file which he 
considers to be inaccurate, misleading or 
otherwise inappropriate data. A student 
shall initiate a challenge by submitting a 
request in writing for the deletion or 
correction of that particular item. The 
request shall be made to the custodian of 
the particular record in question. 

If the custodian and the student in- 
volved are unable to resolve the matter to 
the satisfaction of both parties, the 
written request for deletion or correction 
shall be submitted by the student to the 
coordinator of records, or other such 
person as designated by the chancellor, 
who shall serve as the hearing officer. 
The student shall be given the opportunity 
for a hearing, at which the student may 
present oral or written justification for the 
request for deletion or correction. The 
hearing officer may obtain such other 
information as he deems appropriate for 
use in the hearing and shall give the 
student a written decision on the matter 
within thirty (30) days from the conclu- 
sion of the hearing If the decision of the 
hearing officer is to deny the deletion or 
correction of an item in the student's 
file, the student shall be entitled to 
submit a written statement to the hearing 
officer presenting his position with regard 
-7 to the item. Both the written decision of 
the hearing officer and the statement 
admitted by the student shall be inserted 
in the student's file. The decision of the 
hearing officer shall be final. 

Grades may be challenged under this 
procedure only on the basis of the ac- 
curacy of their transcription. 



Exceptions to the Policy 

It is the position of the University that 
certain data/information maintained in 



various offices of the University is not 
subject to the provisions of this policy 
with regard to inspection, review, chal- 
lenge, correction or deletion. 

(a) Statements submitted by parent/ 
guardian or spouse in support of 
financial aid or residency deter- 
minations are considered to be 
confidential between those persons 
and the university, and are not 
subject to the provisions of this 
policy except with the written consent 
of the persons involved. Such docu- 
ments are not regarded as part of 
the student's official record. 

(b) University employment records of 
students are not included in this 
policy, except as provided under 
Article 76A of the Annotated Code of 
Maryland. 

(c) With regard to general health data, 
only that data /information which is 
used by the University in making a 
decision regarding the student's 
status is subject to review by the 
student under this policy. Written 
psychiatric or psychological case 
notes which form the basis for 
diagnoses, recommendations, or 
treatment plans remain privileged 
information not accessible to the 
student. Such case notes are not 
considered to be part of official 
University records. To ensure the 
availability of correct and helpful 
interpretations of any psychological 
test scores, notes or other evaluative 
or medical materials, the contents of 
these files for an individual student 
may be reviewed by that student only 
in consultation with a professional 
staff member of the specific depart- 
ment involved. 

(d) Records relating to a continuing or 
active investigation by the campus

for routine medical care and professional 
services at the Health Center. Charges, 
however, are made for certain laboratory 
tests, all x-rays, casts and allergy inject- 
ions. It should be noted that the manda- 
tory health fee is not a form of health 
insurance. 

Because many family plans do not 
provide coverage for college age students, 
a group insurance policy is available to 
students. This policy provides benefits 
for hospital, surgery, emergency, labora- 
tory, x-ray, some coverage for mental 
and nervous problems, and contains a 
major hospital provision. Enrollment for 
the policy is open at the beginning of each 
semester. For further information contact 
the Health Center.

Lonely? Confused? Got something on 
your mind, and don't quite know who to 
talk to? The HELP Center is willing to 
listen; all you need to to do is call 
454-HELP. 

Peer counseling is the most popular 
service provided by the HELP Center, 
a campus hotline staffed by student and 
community volunteers. All staff members 
undergo extensive training before they 
begin work and on the job, and are well- 
qualified to assist you in almost any 
situation: interpersonal problems, 
campus hassles, birth control and abor- 
tion information, medical and legal 
referrals, and drug identification and 
information are among the many areas 
in which volunteers are specially trained. 
They are also prepared to help out in 
crisis situations, such as rape, drug 
overdose, or suicide. An extensive referral 
system and a back-up team of profession- 
als are available when needed. 

Other services provided by the HELP 
Center include: 
— Free, anonymous pregnancy testing 

(in cooperation with the Prince Georges 

County Health Department) 



— Low cost, accurate, anonymous street 
drug analysis 

— Ride Board providing listings for 
individuals both seeking and offering 
rides anywhere in the United States, 
Canada, and Mexico. 

—Entertainment Board providing an 
up-to-date listing of activities both on 
and off-campus for your enjoyment. 
For information about any of these 
services, for assistance with a specific 
problem, or just for someone to talk to, 
call the HELP Center. You'll find someone 
who cares.

HUMAN RELATIONS 
OFFICE 

Room 1114, Main Administration 
Building (454-4124, or 4125) 

The Human Relations Office is respons- 
ible for initiating action in compliance 
with campus, state, and federal affirma- 
tive action directives designed to provide 
equal education and employment oppor- 
tunities for College Park students and 
employees and for monitoring the out- 
come of actions taken in this regard. 

Copies of the Campus Human Rela- 
tions Code are available from this office. 
The Code specifies that Equal Education 
and Employment Opportunity (Triple EO) 
Officers shall be active in major campus 
units and that their efforts are to be coor- 
dinated by Equity Officers assigned to the 
administrative staffs of the Vice Chancel- 
lors and Provosts of these units. 

Any student or employee having a 
concern about possible inequities in 
educational or employment matters, or 
who wishes to register a complaint, may 
contact a unit Equity Officer or Triple EO 
representative. He/she may also contact 
the Human Relations' Equity Office in 
Room 0125 of the Undergraduate Library 
(4707 or 5924) or the main Office of 
Human Relations Programs in Room 
1114 of the Main Administration 
Building. 



IDENTIFICATION 
SYSTEM 

The Identification System is comprised of 
two cards, a registration card and a photo 
card which are used together at all times. 
They are used for admission to most 
athletic, social and cultural events on 
campus and also as identification in the 
libraries and dining halls. 

Registration Cards — At the begin- 
ning of each semester, every pre- 
registered student will receive a card 
attached to their schedule of classes 
which designates current registration 
status with the University. Students who 
register in the armory will be issued a 
registration card after presenting proof 
of bill payment. 

Photo Cards — Currently enrolled 
students will continue to use the present 
photo card during their entire enroll- 
ment at the University. New or readmit- 
ted students will be photographed in the 
armory during registration or during their 
orientation session. 

Replacement of damaged cards will be 
made at no cost if the damaged card is 
presented upon request for replacement. 

Replacement of lost or stolen photo 
cards can be obtained for a $7.00 fee. 

Further information about Identifi- 
cation Cards can be furnished by calling 
454-5365.

INTERNATIONAL 
EDUCATION SERVICES 

2115 North Administration 
Building (454-3043) 

This Office provides a wide variety of 
services to faculty and students concerned 
with international education exchange. It 
works closely with the International 
Student Council. Its Furman A. Bridges 
Reading Room has information on study, 
work and travel abroad and it is an auth- 
orized agent for the International 
Student/Scholar Identity Card. In 
addition to study abroad advisement, the 
staff makes recommendations on the 
academic admission of foreign applicants 
and reviews their English proficiency, 
financial and visa status. It helps 
admitted students in their transition to 
this campus by holding a special Orien- 
tation Program, by administering a small i 
emergency loan fund, and by helping with 
housing problems. 

The staff also assists non-U. S. citizens 
maintain lawful immigration status and 
counsels them with reference to personal 
problems, making referrals to the appro- 
priate academic or student affairs office 
as necessary. 

JUDICIARY OFFICE

Saturday, 1p.m. -5p.m. 
Sunday, 5p.m. -10p.m. 
Architecture offers plenty of light with 
comfortable surroundings. The interior 
design is refreshing and a welcome 
change of pace from the rest of the univ- 
ersity. This library offers an outstanding 
collection of foreign language magazines 
on-campus. Even though the collection is 
limited to design and architecture maga- 
zines, it's still interesting. 



We learn from history that we do not 
learn from history.

Saturday, 10 a.m. -6 p.m. 
Sunday, noon-11 p.m. 
Try the second floor information desk on 
your first visit to McKeldin Library to find 
all the helpful assistance needed. You will 
also find a collection of new and inter- 
esting books in this area. 

McKeldin is the main library on 
campus. It contains the greatest number 
of books and periodicals at Maryland. 

The arrangement of McKeldin Library 
services was changed last year to a cen- 
tralized Reference Room and one Period- 
icals/Microforms Room on the second 
floor. The third floor has a single grad- 
uate reserve area, a Government Docu- 
ments Collection and the East Asia 
Collection. On the fourth floor there is a 
Fine Arts Room, Maryland and Rare 
Books Room and a special collection of 



music research on 4M. 

In the library there are small study 
alcoves located on the mezzanine level of 
each floor. Desks and chairs are plentiful 
in the stacks sections where books are 
shelved.

"graduate library," undergrads are 
welcome as well.

The first time you go to the UGL, spend 
some time just to look around. There's a 
do-it-yourself walk through tour that you 
should try. You can pick up a copy at 
the information desk. It's like no library 
you've ever seen before. There are bright 
colors everywhere. 

The building has desks and chairs for 
the traditionalist and lounge chairs if 
you're looking for comfort. All periodicals 
are kept on the second floor, and al- 
though McKeldin has a larger selection, 
UGL probably has what you're looking 
for and it's easier to find. 

For music while you study, check out 
the Non-Print Media on the fourth floor. 
It contains 200 cassette tape players with 
stereo headphones and a selection of 
music for any taste. There are also wire- 
less audio headsets which enable you to 
tune into any one of six pre-programmed 
channels. If that's not enough for you, try 
the quad room where two Marantz amps 
drive four JBL speakers with 400 watts of 
power. 

For the video freak, there are 12 Sony 
color videotape players with cassette 
programs that range from Aztec gods to 
20th century dictators included in a 
collection of close to 2,000 titles. Also 
available are a handful of course lectures, 
mostly upper level, that you can listen to 
on one of the 200 dial-access audio units, 
in stereo, of course.

student.

which its students may receive support 
services and assistance from the 
university. 

Participating students who find that 
they need some tutoring or special 
counseling at any time during the year 
may take advantage of these special 
I.E.D. services. 



Nyumburu Community Center 
3125 New Main Dining Hall 

(454-5774) 

Nyumburu (freedom house) focuses on 
the cultural aspects of the Black expe-

are offered at Nyumburu as well as oppor- 
tunities to participate in a wide range of 
student club activities.

them after they arrive at the University. 

The academic skills development and 
counseling services are available to stu- 
dents throughout the school year and 
during the summer program. 

Academic instruction, tutoring and 
counseling are provided to help develop 
basic academic skills and motivation and 
to assure that each student gains a 
minimum of one year's growth in basic 
skills such as communication and 
mathematics. 



ORIENTATION OFFICE 

1 195 Student Union (454-5752) 
How do you introduce 7,800 new students 
and their parents to the University of 
Maryland? You let them take a look 
"behind the scenes" before classes start, 
through "Maryland Preview," a summer 
program of the Orientation Office. 
Realizing that a school of 37,000 can 
seem pretty confusing, the "Preview" 
staff offers the kind of information that is 
needed to make a successful campus 
debut. Undergraduate Student Advisors 
give tips on campus life, explain university 
requirements, provide academic advising, 
and help students preregister for the fall. 
Parent Preview offers parents an overall 
view of university services, policies, and 
expectations.

UNIVERSITY POLICE 

(454-3555) 

The University of Maryland Police 
Department on the College Park Campus 
is a full police service organization 
dedicated to providing a secure campus 
environment for the entire academic 
community and their guests. All members 
of the Department are fully trained and 
sworn to uphold the laws of the State of 
Maryland and the regulations of the 
University. 

Telephone Numbers: The official 
telephone number is 3555 from a campus 
telephone. This number is answered on a 
24-hour basis and the personnel on duty 
will refer you to the appropriate police 
office on campus. 

In case of an EMERGENCY, a person 
can dial "3333" and immediately be 
connected with the University Police 
Switchboard, in order to obtain the 
emergency assistance which they may 
require. 

Another frequently used number for 
EMERGENCY purposes is the "911" 
number called from a public pay 
telephone. Upon dialing "911" the caller 
is immediately transferred to a Prince 
George's County emergency center at 
which time the caller is connected to the 
appropriate police, medical or fire 
organization. 

Deaf persons may call 627-1112 to 
request emergency assistance. 

In January, 1977, the University Police 
assumed responsibility for the Public 
Emergency Reporting Telephone (PERT) 
system on the College Park Campus. 
Yellow telephones, which are strategic- 
ally located throughout the campus, 
.provide a direct link to the University 
Police Communications center and are to 
be used in case of emergency only. 
Operation of the emergency telephone is 
simple. Merely lift the receiver and you 
will be immediately connected to the 
police dispatcher who will channel your 
emergency call to the proper service unit. 
This system provides the speediest means 
of requesting emergency assistance . 

Other police related functions on this 
campus include: 

Loss Prevention Assistance: 
The function of the Loss Prevention Divi- 
sion is to analyze security risks and to 
develop, implement and evaluate 
security systems designed to eliminate or 



17 



reduce security risks. This unit's respons- 
ibilities include such activities as design- 
ing alarm systems, presenting security 
education programs, conducting security 
surveys, designing lock and key systems, 
coordinating property identification 
programs and assisting the University 
departments in the development of 
effective security procedures. The Loss 
Prevention Division is here to serve the 
entire campus community and can be 
reached at x5185. 

Police Aide Program: The purpose 
of this element is to augment the capa- 
bilities of the regular police element. 
A Police Aide is a currently enrolled 
student who performs functions such as 
security duties in buildings, the libraries 
and UMporium book store; manning the 
security gates at campus entrances; and 
assisting sponsors of social affairs on 
campus. This most valuable extension of 
the police element also provides parking 
lot and traffic control at major athletic 
events held on campus. 

The Parking Enforcement Program is 
fully staffed by students, under the super- 
vision of University Police personnel. 
Their primary function is to patrol the 
faculty /staff and student parking areas 
and to issue violation notices to persons 
who are parked in violation of published 
University regulations. 

In essence, your Police Department 
exists for the sole purpose of serving the 
students and other members of our 
campus community, by providing assis- 
tance and making the campus a suitable 
environment for those students pursuing 
a higher education and to the faculty and 
staff who are the principle instruments 
in this regard. Many of the police officers 
are either former students at this Unives- 
sity or are presently pursuing degrees 
during their off duty time. 

POST OFFICES

There is no charge for campus mail; drop 
it in any campus mailbox. A complete 
self-service U.S. Postal facility is avail- 
able in the Umporium lobby of the 
Student Union. If this isn't sufficient, try 
the University Post Office in the General 
Services Building, 454-3955. 

Campus Mailboxes for U.S. mail are

PUBLIC 
TRANSPORTATION 

Several bus lines cut through or pass by 
the university campus. These lines serve 
Washington, D.C., Silver Spring, 
Wheaton, Baltimore, and several other 
areas in the region. Precise and up-to- 
date information on routes and times is 
available at the Student Union Informa- 
tion Center on the first floor of the Student 
Union. Remember, there are many 
advantages of riding buses including extra 
study time, no parking hassles and a 
contribution to a cleaner environment. 

READING AND 
STUDY SKILLS LAB 

2201 Shoemaker Building 
(454-2635) 

Offering a wide array of study skill 
instructions, RSSL is perhaps one of the 
most useful services offered on-campus. 
Available free for the asking is training 
in effective reading and writing skills plus 
tips on exam preparation and how to 
listen and take notes. Most of these 
courses are preprogrammed so you can 
take them at your own pace and fit them 
within your own schedule limitations. 
You'll find the staff friendly and very 
helpful and there's never any obligation. 

Don't make the mistake of thinking 
that you must have learning problems to 
use RSSL. The sessions on note taking, 
listening and exam skills can give you the 
experience of a senior while still in your 
freshman year, so look into it. 

RELIGIOUS SERVICES 

The Chapel provides a focal point for the 
religious expression and development of 
all faiths on-campus. It houses the large 
East Chapel, the smaller West Chapel, 



and the Roman Catholic Blessed Sacra- 
ment Chapel. One of these is always open 
for prayer or meditation from 8 a.m. until 
10 p.m. The East or West Chapel may be 
reserved for weddings and other religious 
events. 
The People 

Chaplains are appointed to the university 
by their denominations. They serve as 
advisors to youth groups, organize special 
events and generally make the campus 
more aware of religious and ethical 
issues. Student religious groups without 
chaplains select members of the univer- 
sity faculty to serve as advisors to their 
groups. Two of the largest chaplaincies, 
Mil k-1 (Jewish) and Newman (Roman 
Catholic) have centers adjacent to the 
campus to provide space for their 
programs and staff. Other chaplaincies 
have offices in the Memorial Chapel. 
The Program 

Worship, Counseling-Pastoral Care, 
Study groups, Bible/Theology/Ethics. 
All the chaplaincies have special 
programs and during the year jointly 
sponsor events. The chaplains serve in 
many capacities in the university 
community and are available to any 
member of the community on an 
individual basis.

The Department of Resident Life coordi- 
nates the undergraduate housing activi- 
ties for the 36 residence halls on campus. 
Your initial contact with the department 
is through the information they send you 
about housing plans when you are 
admitted to the University. In addition to 
processing student's housing appli- 
cations, the Department of Resident Life 
initiates and aids in the implementation of 
programs designed to maximize the 
living-learning environment of the 
residence halls. 

The Department of Resident Life 
employs and trains fellow students to 
serve as Resident Assistants (RA's). 
These staff members can give you 
valuable information about classes, 
instructors and generally what's happen- 
ing on-campus. Resident Directors and 
I other staff members are available in each 



residence community to assist you. Find 
out who they are and get to know them.

interested students. S.E.E. is divided into 
five committees: concerts, fine arts,

sional experience in the entertainment 
business through the production of 
concerts and other special programming. 

S.E.E. is funded by the Student 
Government Association and revenues 
generated from ticket sales. If you have 
show business in your blood, or if you're 
just interested in helping out, S.E.E.

programming. 

STUDENT UNION 

Now here's a place with a plethora 
(fancified college-type word meaning 
just "lots") of pleasureful pastimes, 
purposeful people who preoccupy them- 
selves with your problems and ponder - 
ings, and pleasantly platonic passers-by. 
In other words, the place has got it 
all . . . and nice people, too. If you 
thought the Teamsters' Union had great 
benefits, read the following and you'll 
find they're nothing compared to our 
"Student Union" benefits. 

The Maryland Student Union is the 
campus center for students, faculty, 
staff, and alumni. A full and varied 
program of special events and regular 
facilities are there for your enjoyment. 
A list of facilities is below, but perhaps 
one of the best things about the building 
is that you can always find a place to sit 
down and visit with a friend. 

7 a.m. -midnight, Monday-Thursday 

7 a.m.-l a.m. Friday 

8 a.m.-l a.m. Saturday 
Noon-midnight, Sunday 

Duplicating Services 

For a minimum charge, the Union Sign 
Shop (across the hall from the Cafeteria) 
can make a variety of signs to carry the 
message you're trying to get across. 
Mimeograph, ditto, offset printing, letter 
press, and embossograph signs are all 
available. 

Information Center 

The Information Desk is located in the 
main lobby of the Union. It's the prime 
source for finding out what's happening 



not only in the Union but anywhere on 
campus or the area. It provides monthly 
activities schedules, campus maps, 
schedules for buses, trains, and airlines. 
Schedule of Classes booklets, traffic 
ticket appeals forms, and a lost and found 
(for the building) - just to name a few. 
Phone 454-2801. 

Notary Public 

There are several Notaries on the staff to 
serve the University community. Check 
at the Information Desk. 

Recreational Facilities 

Most of the recreational facilities are 
located on the basement level. There are 
16 bowling lanes, pool tables, pinball 
machines, and various table games 
available. In addition, tournaments in 
chess, bowling, ping-pong, and bridge 
are scheduled regularly. Be sure to bring 
your student ID. 

Tobacco Shop 

Located just off the main lobby, the 
Tobacco Shop sells cigarettes, cigars, 
pipes, tobacco, candy, newspapers, 
magazines, comic books, pencils, and 
pens. Hours: Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.- 
8:30 p.m., Saturday 8:30 a.m. -2 p.m. 

TV Room 

If you can't miss that favorite soap- 
opera, schedule your classes around it 
and stop by the Union's TV Room. A 
color set is there at your disposal, 
located near the Bowling Lanes in the 
basement. 

TELEPHONES 

Campus Phones 

All phone numbers on campus begin with 
the prefix "454", with the last four digits 
corresponding to a particular connection. 
On a campus phone you can call any- 
where on the College Park Campus for 
free by excluding the "454" prefix and 
dialing only the last four digits. Campus 
phones are found in the halls of all 
dormitories and in public buildings 
(libraries. Student Union, Health Center, 
etc.) 

Off-campus Phones 
To place a call off the College Park 
Campus you must use a pay phone. You 
cannot make an off-campus call on a 
campus phone, nor can the campus 



operator connect you with an off-campus 
operator. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

Registrar's Office, Main Desk 
First Floor, North Administration 
(454-5559) 

There is a $2 charge for all transcripts. 
Allow about three working days for your 
transcript to be mailed out. If you have 
any outstanding bills (like parking 
tickets), you'll have to pay them before- 
hand. Unofficial transcripts may also be 
obtained free of charge. 

TUTORIAL ASSISTANCE 

If you have a problem with a course and 
you feel like you could use a little help, 
it's a good idea to try and see your profes- 
sor before you try any other resource. 
Make an appointment during their regular 
office hours and discuss the situation with 
them. If this isn't sufficient to get you back 
on track, then stop in at the Star Center 
(454-4948) or Reading and Study Skills 
Lab (454-2935) (they have an extremely 
comprehensive list by department 
of tutoring resources). 

UNIVERSITY COLLEGE 

(454-5802) 

University College (Center of Adult 
Education) is the worldwide, adult- 
continuing-education campus of the 
University. Unlike the University's other 
campuses, it is a completely self- 
supported operation, receiving no state 
tax monies. Offering credit and non-credit 
courses, UMUC grants the associate of 
arts, the bachelor of arts, and the bache- 
lor of science degrees. Evening and 
weekend credit classes meet in College 
Park (X-5735) and Baltimore (528-7430). 
UMUC off-campus centers are located 
throughout Maryland (X-2327). Televi- 
sion, films, and cassette recordings are 
used to reinforce the Open University 
program of independent and tutorial study 
(X-2765). 

UMUC Conferences and Institutes 
(College Park, X-4712, Baltimore, 
528-7390) offers many non-credit short 
courses and training programs. It also 
helps plan conferences, workshops, 
seminars, and classes for professional 
and civic groups. Students may apply 
courses taken through University College 
to undergraduate and graduate degrees

offered by other campuses of the 
University of Maryland. 

UNIVERSITY 

COMMUTERS 

ASSOCIATION 

1112 Student Union (454-5187) 

The University Commuters Association 
consists of all those students who do not 
live on University property and who must 
commute to campus on a daily basis. 
Acting as the representative and social 
arm for the commuting student, the UCA 
works in a variety of ways to help make 
commuting less troublesome. Members 
and officers of the association work 
closely with the Office of Commuter 
Affairs on such matters as the Off- 
campus Shuttle Service and counseling 
for commuter problems (parent trouble, 
how to appeal traffic tickets). The UCA 
also acts as liaison on many campus 
committees in order to ensure that the 
commuter viewpoint is well represented. 
In order to get the commuters more in- 
volved on campus, the UCA sponsors a 
lunchtime speaker series at different 
times throughout the semester. They also 
hold afternoon coffeehouses about once 
a month, and they help to sponsor stu- 
dent trips during vacation breaks. 

The UCA is funded by the Student 
Government Association and elects its 
officers on an annual basis. The office is 
usually open between the hours of 
10 a.m. and 2 p.m. every weekday. 
After hours, messages can be left in the

other lesser known benefits. Some include 
up to $780.00 in tutoring assistance,

How To 



The reason it is so difficult to make both 
ends meet is that just when you are about 
to do so, some fools come along and 
move the ends.

At any university there are certain pro- 
cedures established for handling requests 
made frequently by students. Unfortun- 
ately, there seems to be a correlation 
between the size of the institution and 
complexity of the procedures, and you 
know how large UMCP is! Well, in this 
section we've tried to provide you a set 
of guidelines for some of the more 
common treks through the administrative 
maze. If you come up with some useful 
information about how to simplify any of 
these, please let us know by calling the 
Office of Campus Activities, 454-5605.

of Yale, he told about a student who was 
asked by the dean whether he was in the 
top half of his class. 

"Oh, no sir," responded the student. 
"I'm one of those who make the top half 
possible."

CANCEL PRE- 

REGISTRATION 

OR WITHDRAW FROM 

THE UNIVERSITY 

If a student pre-registers and subsequently 
decides not to attend the University, 
he/she must either cancel his regis- 
tration or withdraw from the university. 
The correct procedure to follow is deter- 
mined by when the decision not to attend 
is made. 

Prior to the first day of classes you may 
cancel your registration. If a cancellation 
is processed prior to the first day of class, 
the student incurs no financial obligation 
to the university for the semester. Failure 
to cancel pre-registration will result in 
financial obligation to the university even 
though the student does not attend 
classes. 

On or after the first day of classes you 
must withdraw from the university. 
While a student who withdraws is entitled 



to a refund, the amount of the refund is 
determined by the date the student pro- 
cesses his withdrawal. It is possible to 
withdraw and receive no refund. 

To Cancel Your 
Registration 

— during the schedule adjusting 
period — 

1 . Your cancellation request must be 
received in writing by: Office of 
Registration — Room 1130, North 
Administration Building, University of 
Maryland, College Park, Maryland 
20742. 

Since the university can honor only 
those requests for cancellation which 
are actually received prior to the 
deadline, it is suggested that all 
requests be sent by registered mail. 

2. For additional information concerning 
cancellations call the Registrations 
Office, 454-2734. 

To Withdraw 

from the university 

1 . All students except those in the 
Division of Behavioral and Social 
Sciences report to Room 1130A, 
North Administration Building to 
complete a withdrawal form. BSS 
students should report to the Division 
Office. 

2. Withdrawal becomes effective on the 
date the form is filed with the Office of 
Registrations. 

3. Tuition refunds will be initiated upon 
receipt of the Withdrawal Form. The 
percentage of refund is determined by 
the date the form is filed in the With- 
drawal Office. 

4. Be certain to return all books to the 
Library, your identification cards to the 
Office of Registrations, and your room 
key to the Residence Hall Staff. Also 
be certain to clear all financial accounts 
at the Division of Business Services, 
South Administration Building.

the mail, it is imperative both to the 
student and to the University that 
accurate and up-to-date addresses be 
maintained throughout the time of 
enrollment in the University. 

Currently Registered Students — 
during the academic year the local 
address on file will be used for all mailings 
other than billings and grade reports. 
Grade reports and billings will be mailed

MOTOR VEHICLE 
REGISTRATION 
Who can drive? 

All students who plan to drive on campus 
must register that motor vehicle with the 
Motor Vehicle Administration Office on 
Campus. PLEASE NOTE — freshmen 
and sophomores who live on campus may 
not operate or register a vehicle on 
campus without special permission. 
STICKERS ASSIGNED IN FALL 1977 
ARE VALID UNTIL AUGUST 1978. 
During Registration 

1 . Bring current state registration card 
for each vehicle to be registered. 

2. Enter the Armory through the outside 
northwest door. 

3. Pick up and complete University of 
Maryland application for Motor Vehicle 
Parking Permit form and receive 
bumper decals. 

A registration fee of $12.00 for the first 
vehicle and $3.00 for each additional 
vehicle will be included on student bills 
during Armory Registration. When 
vehicles are registered any other time or 
place, cash payment is required. Be sure 
to check current regulations when you 
register your car. 

Questions regarding Motor Vehicle 
Registration should be referred to the 
Motor Vehicle Administration Office, 
(454-4242, 4243). Special parking 
permits are available for handicapped 
students. Resident freshmen and sopho- 
mores who have off-campus jobs may be 
given special permission to register 
vehicles. Details are available at the 
Motor Vehicle Administration Office. 

Remember, the operation of a motor 
vehicle on the University of Maryland 
Campus is a privelege granted, under 
certain conditions, by the University and 
is not an inherent right of any faculty and 
staff member or student. 



Idealism increases in direct proportion 
to one's distance from the problem. 

John Galsworthy 



PARKING HINTS 

Parking on campus is one of those activ- 
ities which may be harmful to your 
health. If you have any way to get here 
without a car, do so. If not, try to carpool. 
If all else fails, be sure to arrive at your 
assigned parking area early — as much 
as forty-five minutes to an hour may be 
required to find a space in a crowded lot. 

The first few weeks of every semester 
are invariably the worst times for parking. 
Extra time may be needed to find a space. 
Towards the middle and end of the 
semester, the congestion will gradually 
ease, as many folks discover more 
efficient ways than driving to get here. 

The Motor Vehicles Office on campus 
usually designates certain "overflow" 
parking areas to alleviate some of the 
over crowding. Check with that office 
(X4242) or read the Diamondback to find 
out where these overflow areas are 
located and what regulations apply to 
their use. 

Parking regulations are strictly 
enforced on campus. You'll be given a 
copy of the regulations when you register 
your car here — read them carefully. 
Offenses which are particularly serious 
include parking in a medical or handi- 
capped area, leaving your car in a fire- 
lane, or allowing a parking meter to 
expire. Tickets written for these offenses 
cannot be appealed. For other tickets, an 
appeal process is available to students, 
as described in the article 'Ticket Appeal 
Process." 

Remember, parking is a large problem 
on campus. When you pay the vehicle 
registration fee, you are not paying for a 
parking space, but merely for the "privi- 
lege" of competing with thousands of 
others like yourself for the relatively few 
spaces available. On the average, three 
student cars are registered for every 
student space on campus. Need we say 
more? 

PARKING TICKETS 

If you park in other than your assigned 
area, or commit other sins against the 
campus traffic regulations, you're bound 
to be ticketed. Don't discard or ignore 
these tickets; they're added to your 
student bill, which must be paid before 
pre-registration or release of grades can 
occur. 



Payment — by check or money order — 
payable to the University of Maryland — 
may be mailed or hand carried to the 
Motor Vehicle Office, in the Service 
Building near Ritchie Coliseum. Include 
the ticket with payment. Unless you pay 
within ten days, a two dollar late charge 
will be added to the fine. 



TICKET APPEAL 
PROCESS- 

The Judicial Programs Office adminis- 
ters an appeal process for parking tickets. 
To be eligible, you must appeal the ticket 
within ten calender days of issuance. 
Parking meter, firelane and medical area 
tickets may not be appealed. 

If you feel you were ticketed unfairly, 
or if extraordinary circumstances some- 
how surrounded your being ticketed, 
bring the ticket to the North Adminis- 
tration Building, second floor. In the 
hallway, you will find a Traffic Appeals 
table, with the forms and information 
needed to pursue an appeal. 

Appeals will be considered by a board 
composed entirely of students, who are 
familiar with parking and its problems on 
campus. In reviewing each case, the 
board strives to balance the special 
situation of each individual with the 
overall needs of the community. The 
board may completely void a ticket, 
reduce the fine, or deny the appeal 




entirely. An appeal cannot result in a 
higher fine. 

On the average, the board handles 
12,000 tickets per year, of which 50%- 
60% are voided or reduced. 

SNOWDAYS - TO GO 
OR NOT TO GO 

(454-4508) 

You've got that big Physics Exam 
tomorrow, and, like every efficient 
university student, you could use an extra 
day for study. Just one little itsy-bitsy day 
and Einstein would shrink at your 
knowledge. But you feel there is hope — 
the weather report has predicted SNOW 
. . . So you quite efficiently divide your 
time between studying diligently and 
gazing longingly out of the window in 
hope that the fluffy white stuff would soon 
be there. Then it happens! A beautiful 
snowflake lands. 

But wait. Do not stop your studying 
right away. Einstein still has a chance. 
Instead, listen carefully to the radio to 
find if they will close school. The Univer- 
sity officials in charge of snow (and, inci- 
dently, that does not mean we call them 
Snowmen) will also be watching out their 
windows carefully. Once they decide that 
the snow is hazardous enough to warrant 
class cancellation, they send out the 
announcement to the wire services. 
They do this both in the morning and 
afternoon and you just need to listen to 
the standard broadcast, or WMUC if 
you live on campus, and the announce- 
ment will be broadcast. 

If you live off campus and find that it 
is impossible to get in because of the 
conditions, it might help to call your 
professor or someone from your class who 
lives on campus who would have less 
problems getting to the class and explain 
the situation. 

One last word of caution. Make sure 
that the announcement you hear specifies 
"AT COLLEGE PARK." Officials at 
University College and other campuses 
often have made different decisions than 
our officials. 



Entertainment 
& Enrichment 



When I was a boy I was told that anybody 
could become President; I'm beginning to 
believe it. Clarence Darrow 



25 



There's a lot more to college than just 
classes and studying. A lot of learning and 
personal growth goes on in the dormitory, 
on the mall, or in a discussion over a beer. 

In a way the size of the university is 
both a plus and a minus. The plus is that 
about any type of activity or interest group 
that you can imagine is probably in 
existence here, and if it's not, you can 
start one. The minus is that there are so 
many things going on that just being 
aware of them all, much less trying to 
take advantage of all the ones that may 
interest you, is a physical impossibility. 

Here are some suggestions for things to 
try when you're not burdened with work 
for your classes or when you just want to 
take a break. Campus activities are put 
on by students for students because 
students have an interest in doing them, 
so try some. You might be surprised at 
how soon you get involved. 

You know, the best source of enter- 
tainment and enrichment is other people. 
But sometimes a school of nearly 40,000 
can seem cold and impersonal. One of the 
sure-fire ways to combat loneliness is to 
expand your circle of acquaintances by 
frequenting places where you can "bump 
into people." Some of the places you 
might try are: 



ART GALLERIES 

There are two galleries on campus. One 
is located in the Fine Arts Building and 
usually features the work of prominent 
artists and faculty. The other is Punk 
Gallery in the FF temporary building. 
Punk exhibits student work exclusively, 
and while the surroundings aren't very 
plush, the atmosphere is definitely 
friendly. 



CAMPUS-WIDE 
PROGRAMS 

Blood Drive 

Every year. Alpha Omicron Pi and Tau 
Epsilon Phi, in cooperation with the 
American Red Cross, sponsors the 
University of Maryland Blood Drive. The 
University community donates 900 pints 
of blood and all members of the Univer- 
sity community and their families are 
covered for free blood for a period of one 
year. 



Concerts 

You can attend rock and non-rock 
concerts at the University. Big name rock 
groups are sponsored by Student Enter- 
tainment Enterprises (S.E.E.) or the 
M-club. Tickets are sold through the 
Student Union Box Office and sometimes 
at Cole Fieldhouse where the concerts are 
held. The concerts are scheduled for 
various times throughout the year with 
ticket prices averaging around $5.00. 
Call S.E.E. at 454-4546 for information. 

Concerts of the non-rock variety are 
held on-campus in the Tawes Fine Arts 
Theatre. The University Symphony 
Orchestra as well as visiting performers 
are featured. 

Tickets are usually free with a student 
I.D. and can be obtained at the Tawes 
Box Office 454-2201. 

Dance Marathon 

The men of Phi Sigma Delta sponsor this 
money-raising project each fall. Last 
year, approximately $42,000 was raised 
for the American Cancer Society. Besides 
being a worthwhile project, the Dance 
Marathon is a lot of fun. 

Greek Week 

Every spring the Row is the center of 
attraction as members of the social 
fraternities and sororities sponsor Greek 
Week. A new event is planned for every 
day of that week including activities such 
as philanthropy drives, leadership 
development exercises, and, of course, 
the usual fun, games and partying. It's 
an experience guaranteed to create 
spirit in all of those who come to partici- 
pate or just watch. 






Homecoming 

One of the big events of the fall semester 
is Homecoming. An entire week of 
traditional as well as non-traditional 
events take place. An Arts and Crafts 
Fair, alumni speakers, pep rally, parade, 
football game, and one of the largest 
bonfires around are just some of the 
highlights of an entire week of events. 

University Sing 

University Sing gives those with talent 
(as well as those with just nerve) a chance 
to really show the campus community 
how entertainment is really done. A 
variety of songs, costumes and dances 
provide spice to this competitive event 
which is one of the highlights of the 
spring semester. Participants are 
composed of residence hall students, 
Greeks and commuters. 

CLUBS AND 
ORGANIZATIONS 

One of the main advantages to going to 
such a large school is the variety of 
clubs that are available. Below is a list 
of groups registered with the office of 
Campus Activities as of the date of 
publication. There's a group for almost 
every person's special interest. For infor- 
mation about a particular group call 
454-5605.

COFFEE HOUSES 

If you want to meet people, or if you just 
want to spend a relaxing evening with 
your friends, you might try going to a 
coffee house. There are several groups on 
campus that sponsor these. The most 
regular ones are in the Student Union 
(room 0231), usually from 8:00 p.m.- 
midnight. 

Student Entertainment Enterprises 
(S.E.E.) sponsors a Speakeasy which has 
a coffee house atmosphere featuring 
nationally known groups. You can get 
tickets at the Student Union ticket office. 

You might also check various dorms 
and the RHA as they often put on coffee 
houses within the confines of their 
particular area. 

THE COMMONS 
LOUNGES 

These rooms are conducive to quiet 
meditation, study, and/or lively conver- 
sation. They are located in: 

Foreign Languages Bldg., 0205 

Tydings Hall, 2103 

Taliaferro Hall, 1102 

Skinner Bldg., 0120

You can also try:

Any of the local beer places 



EXERCISE 

One of the best ways to release tension 
and get back in shape is to get a good 
workout. Most of the indoor sports 
facilities are scheduled with physical 
education classes during the day, but if 
the weather is good, you can try the 
basketball courts around Byrd Stadium 
or in the quadrangle in back of Cecil Hall 
in the Hill area. You can get in some 
tennis on the court behind the Ellicott 
complex. 

For evenings when there are no classes, 
you'll find facilities for most sports. 

Basketball 

There are indoor courts located in the 
Armory and the Physical Education 
building behind the Cambridge complex. 
During the season call the Intramurals 
Office (454-5454) to see which courts 
are open. 



Bike Paths 

More students are riding bikes to campus 
these days, however, the bikeways have 
not been clearly delineated near the UM 
campus. So it would be wise to use 
reflectors and choose routes which have 
been marked for bicycles or which have 
surfaced shoulders. On-campus, follow 
the bike paths. For more information 
concerning the off-campus routes in your 
area, contact the Office of Commuter 
Affairs, 454-5275. 

On-campus, the most important 
accessory for the bike is a STRONG lock 
and chain. Make certain that when 
parking your bike, you lock both wheels 
and the chassis. Whatever isn't locked, 
may be missing when you return. 'Theft- 
proof bike racks are available around 
campus. It is wise to use the racks which 
are provided, since ground crews have 
instructions to remove bikes which are 
chained to trees and building railings. 

Golf Course 

The university operates an eighteen-hole, 
par 71 golf course, located across Univer- 
sity Boulevard. The course offers you 
everything you would expect from a 
private course except a nineteenth hole. 
There is a nominal fee, but bring your own 
clubs because rentals are limited. 



In addition to the golf course, a driving 
range and putting green are also 
available. 

Both of these are open only during the 
Spring and Summer. 

Gymnastics 

There's an apparatus room located in 
Room 0108 of Cole. It contains two 
trampolines, tumbling mats and gym- 
nastic equipment. The room is open 
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 
4:00 p.m. -6:00 p.m.; Wednesday, 
7:00 p.m. -9:00 p.m.; All weekdays, 
Noon-l:00p.m. 

Handball /Squash 

The Physical Education Building behind 
the Cambridge complex has eight courts 
that are open in the evening for handball 
or squash. Plan on waiting for a court if 
you don't have a reservation; they go 
quickly. Call 454-5624 for a reservation, 
but call by 9:00 a.m. or you'll be out of 
luck. 

Swimming 

There are two pools, one in Preinkert and 
the other in Cole. So if you want to make 
a big splash, it's best to call ahead 
because the hours and days change. 

Some days it's co-ed; other times it's 
restricted. 

Weightlifting 

You can build muscle tone by taking 
advantage of the universal gym and other 
equipment in Room 01 15 of Cole. Call 
454-2755 for hours. 

FRATERNITIES 

Fraternities are organizations formed for 
the purposes of promoting scholarship, 
developing leadership, stimulating social 
interaction and providing meaningful 
interpersonal relationships. In a fra- 
ternity, you have the chance to work with 
men called "brothers," that are both 
similar and different in background. You 
live together, work together and have fun 
together. If you're interested in getting to 
know some of the men in fraternities, just 
stop by or give a call.

most likely find a movie on-campus that 
interests you. There are two good sources 
for high-quality first-run features at 
reasonable prices: the Student Union, 
which schedules movies on a Wednesday 
to Sunday basis with shows at 7:00 and 
9:30 for $1.00, and Company Cine- 
matique, which offers a variety of under- 
ground experimental, "oldies but 
goodies," contemporary films as well as 
a skin flick thrown in here or there for 
spice. C.C. shows its movies in Skinner 
and Tydings Auditoria. Day, times and 
prices vary, so check the DBK for up-to- 
date information. 

PACE 

PACE (People Active in Community 
Efforts) is for those students who want to 
work with other University of Maryland 
students in off-campus volunteer work. 
This coalition of student volunteer pro- 
jects is SGA funded and provides a great 
way to get experience and meet new 
people. 

THE PUB 

The Pub is a popular drinking spot on 
campus located in the Main Dining Hall. 
Open from Wednesday-Saturday, the Pub 
features a live band and houses a large 
dance floor so you can really show your 
fancy footwork. 

Besides beer and wine, the Pub serves 
fast foods such as pizza, hamburgers, 
hot dogs, and french fries, all moderately 
priced. 

The Pub is open Wednesday and 
Thursday from 7:00 p.m. -12 a.m. and 
Friday and Saturday from 7:00 p.m. 
until 2:00 a.m. 

Drop by whenever you feel like putting 
on your dancing shoes or just feel like 
listening to some good music. 

SORORITIES 

The women of the social sororities at 
Maryland are an integral part of the 
Greek system. These organizations exist 
for mutual benefit in getting the most out 
of the college years. Not all learning takes 
place in the classroom and the sorority 
can do much to contribute to out of class 
education. Sororities stress scholarship. 



If Moses had been a Committee, the 
Israelites would still be in Egypt.

and development of strong, longlasting

SPECTATOR SPORTS 

Some of the best college athletic events 
take place right on this campus. The 
University of Maryland is a member of 
the highly acclaimed Atlantic Coast 
Conference and fields varsity teams in 
football, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, 
swimming, baseball, wrestling, track and 
field, tennis, and fencing. 

Students are admitted by just showing 
their current I.D. card to most events, but 
must pick up tickets in advance for 
basketball — and some football games — 
because of the limited seating capacity. 
The pick-up policy and schedule will be 
printed in the DBK at the beginning of the 
season. When a big game comes along, 
get there early because lines form several 
hours (that's right!) in advance. 

The women's varsity athletic program 
is also gaining steady popularity. With the 
advent of recent legislation, look for 
women's sports to get the increasing 
coverage that they deserve. 

In addition to the varsity teams, there 
are several clubs that represent the 
university but are not part of the athletic 
department. Most notable of these is the 
Rugby Club. The games feature lots of 
action on the field and lots of partying on 
the sideline during and after the game. 
Sometimes the spectators are as inter- 
esting to watch as the games. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 
ASSOCIATION 

Located in room 1 2 1 1 D of the 
Student Union 454-281 1, 454-5688 

The SGA is the blanket organization for 
all student groups and student extra- 
curricular activities. Every full-time 
undergraduate student at the University 
is a member of the SGA. It is composed of 
an executive and legislative branch which 
are annually chosen by election. 

The purpose of the SGA is to protect 
and voice student interests and rights 
before the campus administration, 
the Board of Regents and the state 
legislature. 

SGA also allocates the student 
activities fee. The total figure, which is 
based on enrollment, is allocated to 
various student organizations which 
provide services to the campus. 

Anyone can be a participating member 
of SGA. Each year many committees and 



clubs are formed to work on various 
campus projects. You can join by 
dropping by the office and signing up. 
You can even start your own club. 

If you have a problem or would just like 
to get involved, stop by or give them a 
call. 

STUDENT UNION 

Whether you enjoy going to a movie, 
shooting some pool, or just shooting the 
breeze with some friends, you can always 
find something to do at the Maryland 
Student Union. It's the campus center for 
students, faculty, staff, and alumni, so 
if you're looking for something to do or 
know something is happening but don't 
know where it is, try the Union. A full and 
varied program composed of special 
events and regular facilities is there for 
your enjoyment. 

TERABAC ROOM 

One of the newest additions to our 
campus is the Terabac Room, (read it 
backwards, it spells Cabaret!) It is located 
in the Cambridge Community Center and 
offers a different concept in entertainment 
for the UM campus. This restaurant- 
style club features movies on Tuesday 
night as well as live entertainment 
Wednesday-Saturday. The unique menu 
features such dishes as quiche, crepes, 
fondues, sandwiches and huge salads at 
very reasonable prices. There is also a 
choice of wines and beer. 

The Terabac Room is open on Tuesday- 
Wednesday from 8:00 p.m.-l a.m.; 
Thursday, 8:00 p.m. -2 a.m.; and Friday 
and Saturday from 8:00-3:00 and reser- 
vations are accepted. 

Be sure to check it out for a truly 
enjoyable evening. 

THEATRE 

The on-campus home for theatre is the 
Tawes Fine Arts Theatre. Four produc- 
tions are offered annually with special 
seasonal presentations around Christ- 
mas. Tryouts for all productions are open 
to the public and are announced in the 
DBK. If you are interested only as a 
spectator, you can get your tickets from 
the Tawes Box Office.

General 

University 

Regulations 



1977-78 



31 



A revision of the University of Maryland 
Official Rules and Regulations is currently 
under consideration. 

The masculine gender of personal 
pronouns in this document includes the 
feminine gender. 



32 



I. General Rules and 
Regulations 

(The following provisions and procedures 
are subject to change. The University 
reserves the right to make modifications 
following reasonable notice to the Univer- 
sity community. For the most current 
revisions, consult the Judiciary Office 
staff.) 

A. General Policy 

By reason of its responsibility to promote 
its educational purposes, the University of 
Maryland has the inherent right to 
preserve order and maintain stability 
through the setting of standards of 
conduct and the prescribing of procedures 
for the enforcement of such standards. 
The University of Maryland embraces the 
tenet that the exercise of individual rights 
must be accompanied by an equal 
amount of individual responsibility. By 
accepting membership in the University 
community, a student acquires rights in, 
as well as responsibilities to, the whole 
University community. 

University students are recognized as 
being both citizens in the larger commun- 
ity and members of an academic com- 
munity. In his role as citizen, the student 
is free to exercise his fundamental consti- 
tutional rights. Rights and responsibilities 
under local, state and national laws are 
neither abridged nor extended by status 
as a student of the University of Mary- 
land. However, as a member of an 
academic community, he is expected 
particularly to fulfill those behavioral 
responsibilities which attend his member- 
ship and which are necessitated by the 
University's pursuit of its stated objec- 
tives. Within this context, the appro- 
priateness and acceptability of student 
behavior will be evaluated by its relation 
to the recognized educational purposes of 
the institution. 

Broadly stated, the missions of the 
University of Maryland are to extend the 
boundaries of knowledge, to provide 
educational opportunities to those who 
seek and need them, and to instruct the 
community, state, and nation in the uses 
to which knowledge and education may 
be put. The pursuit of these objectives 
can be carried on only in an atmosphere 
of personal and academic freedom, one 



in which the rights and responsibilities 
of all members of the academic commun- 
ity are fully protected. The maintenance 
and/or restoration of such an atmosphere 
is the basis for a disciplinary structure 
within the University. 

Official University sanctions will be 
imposed or other appropriate action 
taken only when a student's observable 
behavior distinctly and significantly 
interferes with the University's (1) pri- 
mary educational objectives and /or 
(2) subsidiary responsibilities of pro- 
tecting the safety, welfare, rights, and 
property of all members of the University 
community, persons coming onto Univer- 
sity property and of the University itself. 

Students charged with a violation 
of University regulations or policies are 
guaranteed fundamental fairness in the 
handling of the charges, the conduct of 
hearings, the imposition of sanctions, and 
the right of appeal. 

B. The University 
Judiciary Program 

It is assumed that discipline is properly 
the concern of the entire University com- 
munity—the student body, the faculty, 
the staff, and the administration. Partic- 
ular provision is made in the Judiciary 
program for students to adjudicate cases 
of student misconduct. 

Administration of discipline of the 
University of Maryland is the primary 
responsibility of the Judiciary Office. Its 
staff attempts to provide leadership for 
the overall program by advising and 
directing the efforts of students, faculty 
and administration in disciplinary con- 
cerns. Specifically, their main functions 
are (1) processing reports and corres- 
pondence which deal with disciplinary 
matters, (2) interviewing and counseling 
and coordinating the activities of the 
various student judicial boards, (3) re- 
viewing and/or approving the recommen- 
dations of these boards, and (4) maintain- 
ing a central file of student disciplinary 
records. In addition, the Judiciary Office 
lends assistance to and promotes inter- 
communication among other individuals 
and University offices concerned with 
student misconduct. 

The functionally substantive segment 
of the program contains the various 
student judicial boards. At each level they 



serve to encourage adherence to Univer- 
sity policies and regulations, to adjudicate 
cases of student misconduct, and to 
provide for the offender opportunity to 
benefit from peer group judgment. 
Members of the boards are chosen from 
among the most academically capable 
and personally responsible students at 
the University. There are approximately 
75 students participating on the following 
student boards: Area Judicial Boards, 
one in each of the six major residential 
areas; Student Traffic Board and Traffic 
Appeals Board; Campus Judicial Board; 
and Central Student Judicial Board. 
Matters that have come before these 
boards range from parking tickets to 
major University disruptions. 

C. Student Responsibility 

Students are expected to conduct them- 
selves at all times in a manner consistent 
with the University's responsibility of 
ensuring to all members of the University 
community the opportunity to pursue 
their educational objectives, and of 
protecting the safety, welfare, rights, and 
property of all members of the University 
itself. 

D. General University 
Regulations Which Apply 
to all Students 

The following behavior may result in 
referral to the Judiciary Office for appro- 
priate action. Typically, disciplinary 
sanctions will be imposed not only for 
individual misconduct which demon- 
strates a disregard for institutional 
behavioral standards, but also for con- 
duct which indicates disregard for the 
rights and welfare of others as members 
of an academic community. Such 
conduct may ultimately call into question 
the student's membership in the Univer- 
sity community, either because he has 
violated elementary standards of behavior 
necessary for the maintenance of an 
educational milieu or because his contin- 
ued presence at the University adversely 
affects the ability of others to pursue 
their educational goals. 

Violation of Fire Regulations This 
includes failure to comply with evacuation 
procedures, tampering with fire protec- 



33 



tion apparatus, use or possession of 
fireworks or firearms, or use of open- 
flame devices or combustible materials 
which endangers the safety or well-being 
of the University community; or unauth- 
orized use of electrical equipment. 

Behavior Which Jeopardizes the 
Safety or Well-Being of Other 
Members of the University Continu- 
ity or Persons Coming onto 
University Property. This includes, 
but is not limited to, physical harassment 
of, or interference with firemen, police- 
men or other persons engaged in the 
performance of their official duties; 
physical abuse or threatening physical 
abuse of any person on University proper- 
ty; forcible detention of any person on 
University property. 

Unauthorized Possession, Use, or 
Distribution of Alcoholic Beverages 
on or in University Property. 

University policy, consistent with State 
and County laws, restricts on-Campus use 
of alcoholic beverages in specified areas. 

Possession, Use, Sale or Distri- 
bution on or in University Property 
of Illegal Drugs or of Drugs for 
Which the Required Prescription 
Has Not Been Obtained. This includes 
possession, use, distribution, sale, manu- 
facture or processing of illegal or unpre- 
scribed narcotics, drugs, and/or hallu- 
cinogenic substances. 

Destruction, Theft, Attempted 
Theft, or Impairment of Personal or 
University Property. This includes 
both intentional and negligent acts. 
Disciplinary action may include a require- 
ment of restitution. 

Unauthorized Possession or Use of 
University Keys. Keys to rooms or 
buildings on the University Campus may 
be obtained only through official channels 
and may not be duplicated for any 
purpose. 

Unauthorized Entry into or Presence 
in a University Building or Facility. 

Except for properly scheduled use, 
classroom, administration and recreation 
buildings are closed to general student 
use on holidays, Saturday afternoon. 



Sundays and after 12 midnight during the 
week. Students may use a building or 
facility for a specified purpose upon 
written permission from a member of the 
faculty with approval of the academic or 
administrative officer normally having 
control over such building or facility, 
which permission may be revoked or 
withdrawn. 

Falsification, Forgery, or Modifi- 
cation of any Official University 
Record. This includes, but is not limited 
to, identification and transaction cards, 
absence excuses, parking stickers, tran- 
scripts, examinations, grade cards, 
admission applications, etc. 

Plagiarism, Cheating and Other 
Academic Irregularities. A student 
who violates accepted academic proce- 
dure may be referred to the dean of his 
college or chairman of his division or to 
an Ad Hoc Committee on Academic 
Dishonesty. (See irregularities in Examin- 
ations for specifics) 

Failure to Meet Financial Obli- 
gations to the University. This 
includes failure to pay delinquent 
accounts and use of worthless checks or 
money orders in payment to the Univer- 
sity for tuition, board, fees, library fines, 
traffic penalties, etc. 

Obstruction of. Disruption of, or 
Interference With Any University 
Activity of an Academic Nature; 
Actions on the Part of Students 
Which Substantially Obstruct, 
Disrupt, or Interfere with Non- 
Academic Activities on University 
Premises by Members or Authorized 
Non-Members of the University 
Community. 

Violations of University Resident 
Life Regulations. While incidents 
involving violations of Housing regu- 
lations may be referred to the Judiciary 
Office, other administrative action, 
having the same effect as disciplinary 
action, is possible under the terms of the 
Housing Contract. 

Violations of University Campus 
Traffic Rules and Regulations. 

Misuse of Identification Cards. 

Official University of Maryland student 



identification cards and transaction 
plates are issued to all registered under- 
graduate and graduate students. The 
identification card and the transaction 
plate are for use only by the student to 
whom issued and may not be transferred 
or loaned to another individual for any 
reason. Loss of either the I.D. card or the 
transaction plate, or both, should be 
reported at once to the I.D. card section. 
Office of Admissions and Records. A 
replacement fee of $7.00 for each item is 
required prior to the creation of author- 
ized duplicates. 

E. Enforcement 
Procedures 

It is the general expectation that indivi- 
duals and groups will abide by the 
behavioral guidelines established by this 
policy statement. Compliance with these 
minimal standards for responsible 
conduct is a necessary condition for 
maintaining an educational environment. 

Reports of alleged student misconduct 
may be submitted to the Judiciary Office 
in writing by any member of the Univer- 
sity community. Reports of alleged 
academic dishonesty shall be submitted 
to the pertinent academic department. 

Action taken will follow procedures 
established by the University. 

Should violations continue beyond the 
enforcement capabilities of the Univer- 
sity staff, such outside assistance as is 
necessary will be requested. 

F. Proceedings 
Before Hearings 

Matters referred to the Judiciary Office 
shall be investigated as appropriate. It 
is the responsibility of this office to inter- 
pret the alleged misconduct in terms of 
the published regulations of the Univer- 
sity and to identify those specific charges 
that will be brought against the student(s) 
involved. Disciplinary proceedings will 
be instituted only for behavior alleged to 
have been a violation of a University 
regulation. This office is responsible for 
instituting the proper proceedings. In all 
such instances, the welfare and develop- 
ment of the individual student and the 
interests of the University are the primary 
concerns. 

After reviewing the report of miscon- 
duct, specifying the applicable charges. 



34 



and obtaining any additional information 
deemed desirable, the Judiciary Office 
may make disposition of the case in one 
of the following ways: 

1 . Discuss the case with the student(s) 
involved and advisor, if any; inform the 
accused student(s) of the nature and 
source of the charges; outline the hearing 
procedures and possible consequences. 
In cases in which the student admits 
involvement (guilt) and in which he 
expressly requests an administrative 
hearing, the Judiciary Office may impose 
the appropriate disciplinary sanction(s). 

2. Defer disciplinary action pending 
review by psychological or medical 
authorities. 

3. Refer the report of alleged miscon- 
duct, a statement of specific charges, and 
all other relevant information/material 
to the appropriate student judicial body. 

G. Disciplinary Sanctions 

Following are those sanctions which may 
be imposed on a student as a result of an 
administrative or judicial board hearing: 

Disciplinary Reprimand. A discip- 
linary reprimand is written notification 
from a University official to a student 
containing a warning that repeated 
infractions of regulations may result in 
more severe disciplinary action. A record 
of the letter will be filed in the Judiciary 
Office. 

Conduct Probation. This action 
involves a period of time, not to exceed 
one year, in which a student is expected 
to show a positive change in behavior. 
In addition, conditions and restrictions 
as deemed appropriate may be imposed, 
including revocation of specific privileges 
and recommendations for counseling 
interviews with the Judiciary Office. A 
violation of conduct probation may be the 
basis for more severe disciplinary action. 

Dismissal From University Housing. 

In the case of a serious violation of house 
rules, residence hall probation, or 
housing regulations, a student may be 
dismissed from University housing for 
a specified period of time. Such dismissal 
results in a percentage room and board 
refund, according to the regular Univer- 
sity refund policy. (This sanction is 
distinct from the administrative pro- 



visions for contract termination contained 
in the Resident Life contract.) 

Disciplinary Probation. This action 
involves a period of time not to exceed 
one year during which a student who has 
been involved in a disciplinary situation 
(or repeated violations) is given an 
opportunity to prove that he can become 
a responsible and effective member of the 
University community. 

Unless waived by the judicial board or 
administrative officer, the following 
conditions are imposed on the student 
during disciplinary probation: 

1. A student may not represent the 
University in any extra-curricular activity, 
such as intercollegiate athletics, debate 
teams. University Theatre, or band; 
however, he may participate in informal 
activities of a recreational nature sponsor- 
ed by the University. 

2. A student may not run for or hold 
office in the Student Government Associ- 
ation or the Graduate Student Federation 
or in any organization that is recognized 
by the University. 

Any additional conditions or restric- 
tions as deemed appropriate may be 
imposed on the student on disciplinary 
probation. If a student is found guilty of 
any infraction of University regulations 
or policies while on disciplinary probation 
or violation of the conditions and restric- 
tions of the disciplinary probation, the 
student will be subject to further discip- 
linary action, including suspension or 
expulsion from the University. 

When a student is placed on disciplin- 
ary probation, the Judiciary Office will 
notify the appropriate University authori- 
ties of the disciplinary action. 

At the end of the probationary period, 
the student's case will be reviewed by the 
Judiciary Office. If all conditions of the 
disciplinary action have been met satis- 
factorily, the student will be considered 
to be in good standing with respect to 
conduct. 

Suspension from the University. 

A student's suspension from the Univer- 
sity shall be for an indefinite period of 
time. However, the judicial board recom- 
mending this action must specify the date 
at which he subsequently may apply to 
the Judiciary Office for readmission, and 
in no case will this date be later than one 
year after the effective date of the sus- 



pension. The academic record of the 
student will not in any way affect this 
application for readmission after the 
suspension for disciplinary reasons. All 
recommendations for suspension from 
appropriate judicial bodies must be 
approved by the Vice Chancellor for 
Student Affairs. Notation of this action 
is made on the student's official tran- 
script. During the period of suspension, 
the student is excluded from classes and 
from all other rights and privileges which 
are accorded to students in good stand- 
ing. The student may not participate in 
any University-sponsored activity, or the 
activities of any recognized University 
organization. During the period of 
suspension, the student is not permitted 
on University property without express 
written permission from the Director of 
Public Safety. If a suspended student 
violates these provisions or violates a 
University regulation or policy while on 
University property or in relation to a 
University activity, as determined after 
the opportunity for a hearing, he shall be 
subject to further disciplinary action in 
the form of expulsion. 

1 . Suspended Suspension by Vice 
Chancellor for Student Affairs. 

Suspension is withheld pending careful 
evaluation of a student's behavior during 
a probationary period not to exceed one 
year. If the student is involved in any 
further offense, this suspension of discip- 
linary action may be summarily revoked 
by the Vice Chancellor and the original 
decision of suspension from the University 
enforced. 

2. Deferred Suspension by Vice 
Chancellor for Student Affairs. 

This is a suspension which becomes 
effective after a specific future date. It is 
normally used near the end of a semester 
to avoid financial penalty that would be 
entailed by an immediate suspension. 
Probationary status will exist during this 
period identical to suspended suspension 
above. 

Expulsion from the University. This is 
the most serious penalty and results in 
a complete separation of the relations 
between the University and the student. 
Permanent notification appears on the 
student's official transcript. Expulsion 
must be approved by the chancellor. 



35 



Suspension of a Student from Class 
Discipline in the classroom is the respon- 
sibility of the faculty member in charge of 
the class. Misbehavior of a type that 

i interferes with the educational efficiency 
of a class will be considered sufficient 
cause for suspending a student from the 
class. If a student is suspended from class 
for disciplinary reasons, he should report 
immediately to the department chairman. 
The department chairman will investigate 
the incident and will report it to the 
academic dean or division chairman and 
to the Judiciary Office, in order to deter- 
mine whether or not past disciplinary 
action has been taken against the stu- 
dent. The department head will then 
write a letter to the student indicating the 
disposition of the case. The student will 
be required to present this letter to his 
instructor before he can be readmitted 

| to class. A copy of this letter will be sent 
to the Judiciary Office. 

Disruption of a class by a student not 
enrolled in that class can be referred to 
the Judiciary Office. Disruption by a non- 
student can be referred to the Campus 
police. 

Suspension of a Student from 
Activities or University Facilities. 

The individual or group of individuals in 
charge of any department, division, 
organization, building, facility or any 
other unit of the University, (e.g.. Dining 
Hall, Student Union, etc.) shall be 
responsible for student discipline within 
such units. The person responsible for 
each unit may suspend the student or 
student organization from the unit. The 
suspended student or representative of 
the student organization will be referred 
immediately to the Judiciary Office. The 
Judiciary Office will investigate the 
incident and notify the student of further 
disposition of the case. The individual 
responsible for the suspension will be 
notified before the student or his organi- 
zation can be readmitted. A file of such 
actions shall be kept in the Judiciary 
Office. 

H. Appeals 

Any disciplinary action may be appealed 
to the next higher judicial body. In all 
cases, the request for appeal must be 
submitted in writing to the Judiciary 
Office within 10 calendar days from the 
date of the letter notifying the student of 



the decision. If the tenth day falls on a 
weekend or holiday, the time is extended 
to the next regular work day. 

If no appeal is taken within 10 calendar 
days after notice of the decision, the 
decision shall be final and conclusive. 

A written brief stating contentions 
concerning the case may be presented by 
the appellate at the time of filing the 
appeal. The appellate body will review the 
request for appeal and written briefs or 
other supporting documentation to 
determine if it presents a substantial 
question within the scope of review. The 
scope of review shall be limited to consid- 
eration of the following questions: 
(1) whether the adjudicatory process of 
the initial hearing was conducted fairly 
and in conformity with properly pre- 
scribed procedures; (2) whether there is 
new evidence or relevant facts not 
brought out in the original hearing 
because it was not known to the party at 
that time; (3) whether the adjudication 
was supported by substantial evidence; 

(4) whether the regulations involved were 
properly applied in the particular case; 

(5) whether the sanction imposed was in 
due proportion to the gravity of the 
conduct. All appeals (except those from 
area judicial boards) shall be taken upon 
the record made before the original 
panel. The appellate body may only 
affirm, modify or remand the original 
decision. Pending the outcome of the 
appeal hearing, the disciplinary sanctions 
stipulated in the original decision shall 
not be imposed. 

II. Emergency 

Disciplinary 

Rules and Procedures 

(Adopted by the Board of Regents March 
19, 1971. These rules and procedures are 
those used in extraordinary or emergency 
situations as determined by the 
chancellor.) 

A. General 

The following rules and procedures are 
hereby declared to be in addition to and 
supplementary of any and all rules and 
regulations which are now or hereafter 
may be applicable to any campus under 
the jurisdiction of the Board of Regents of 
the University (the Regents). The juris- 
diction conferred in the plans for the 



Undergraduate Judicial System and the 
Graduate Judicial System adopted in 
1969, as from time to time amended, is 
hereby preserved, provided, however, 
that when the procedures specified in this 
Part II shall have been initiated, in accor- 
dance with the terms hereof, this Part II 
shall control, and all such jurisdiction 
shall be transferred to and shall be 
governed by the procedural and sub- 
stantive context of this Part II. Any prior 
action of the Board which might be 
construed to be inconsistent with the 
delegation of power hereby made is 
rescinded to the extent of such 
inconsistency. 

B. Procedure 

1 . This Part II shall apply to all cases 
where, in the judgment of the president or 
his delegate, the chancellor, a student 
has violated any one or more of the rules 
established by Section C hereof, and 
where the president or his delegate, the 
chancellor, has followed the require- 
ments of this Section B. If a determina- 
tion has been made as provided in this 
Paragraph 1, and notice has been served 
in accordance with Paragraph 3 hereof, 
then, and in such event, the provisions of 
this Part II shall control the case to the 
exclusion of any other general and aca- 
demic regulations applicable to any 
campus of the University. 

2. If the president, or the chancellor, has 
concluded, upon prima facie evidence, 
that a student has violated one or more of 
the rules established by Section C hereof, 
then the president or the chancellor may 
serve such student with notice that he 
may be subject to disciplinary action 
including suspension or expulsion and 
that a hearing will be held to determine 
the matter, such notice to be in the form 
and containing the information required 
by Paragraph 3 hereof. The chancellor, 
or, in his absence, his designee, may 
temporarily suspend a student for an 
interim period pending a disciplinary 
hearing, such temporary suspension to 
become immediately effective without 
prior notice, whenever in his judgment 
there is evidence of severe misconduct 
indicating that the continued presence of 
the student on the University campus 
poses a threat to University property, to 
members of the University community, 

to himself, or to the stability and continu- 



36 



ancc of normal University functions. A 
student suspended on an interim basis 
shall be given the opportunity to promptly 
appear personally before the chancellor 
or in his absence his designee and to have 
a hearing on the following issues only: 

(a) the reliability of the information on 
the student's misconduct, including the 
matter of his identity; 

(b) whether the misconduct and 
surrounding circumstances reasonably 
indicate that the removal of the student 
from the University campus is required 
to safeguard himself, members of the 
University community, University proper- 
ty, or the continuance of normal Univer- 
sity functions. 

This Part II shall become applicable 
only upon the condition that the presi- 
dent, or his delegate, the chancellor, has 
invoked the procedures contained in this 
Part II within ten (10) days after the 
receipt by the president or his delegate, 
the chancellor, of the prima facie evi- 
dence required by this paragraph. Unless 
or until the student has been served with 
notice in accordance with this Part II, the 
discipline of any student shall be 
controlled by plans for the Undergraduate 
Judicial System and Graduate Judicial 
System adopted in 1969, as from time to 
time amended, or by any other system 
which has been established in accordance 
with legally approved standards that may 
have been or may be adopted for any 
campus of the University. 
3. The procedures and substance of this 
Part II shall be initiated only upon written 
notice being served on the student per- 
sonally or sent to the student involved at 
his address appearing on the records of 
the University, by certified mail, advising 
him of the following (personal service or 
the receipt by the University of a return 
receipt of mailing being hereby defined as 
"service with notice."): 

(a) a specific description of the miscon- 
duct with which he is charged and a list 
of those rules in Section C hereof which 
he has allegedly violated by such mis- 
conduct, together with a copy of any 
written complaint relating to the case; 

(b) that he shall be provided a hearing 
as provided in this Part II not less than 
four (4) nor more than fourteen (14) 
calendar days after the effective date of 
service of notice, such hearing to be held 
even if he chooses not to appear, and 



such notice shall specify a date, time and 
place for the hearing; 

(c) that the hearing will be open to the 
public and press unless he requests that 
it be closed and its proceedings and 
decisions considered confidential; 

(d) that he shall be permitted to 
inspect at the office of the chancellor or 
in some other designated office on 
campus in advance of the hearing any 
affidavits, exhibits, or written evidence 
which the University intends to submit at 
the hearing; 

(e) that he may be accompanied and 
represented at the hearing by an advisor 
of his choice, who may be an attorney; 

(0 that he shall be permitted to hear 
the evidence presented against him and 
that he shall be permitted to question at 
the hearing any witness who gives 
evidence against him; 

(g) that he shall have the oppor- 
tunity to present his version at the hearing 
by way of affidavits, exhibits, and 
witnesses; 

(h) that he has been temporarily sus- 
pended from the University, if that be 
the case; and 

(i) if relevant, notice of the possible 
denial of financial aid pursuant to Section 
497 of the Education Amendments of 
1972 (P.L. 90-575). 
4. A. All Part II cases shall be heard, 
in the first instance, by a University 
Judicial Board (the Board). 

B. An accused student or the person 
presenting the case for the University 
may request of the chancellor the dis- 
qualification of any member of the Board 
selected to serve thereon for the hearing 
by submitting a letter to the chancellor 
showing that such member is related or 
has had a business or close personal 
association with the accused student, 
with the complaintant, or with any 
person who has been substantially and 
adversely affected by the student's alleged 
conduct. The chancellor may conduct 
such investigation of the ground for 
disqualification as he sees fit. The pre- 
vious participation as a Board member in 
a hearing involving the accused student 
shall not be grounds for disqualification. 
The decision of the chancellor as to 
whether or not there are sufficient 
grounds for disqualification is final. If 
an accused student chooses to invoke the 
rights conferred by this subparagraph. 



his hearing before the Board shall be 
postponed for such period of time (not to 
exceed seven (7) calendar days) which 
will enable the chancellor to determine 
whether the disqualification of any 
member of the Board is warranted. 

C. The Board shall be appointed for 
each of the campuses of the University 
by the president or by his delegate, the 
chancellor. The Board shall be composec 
of either five (5) or seven (7) members, at 
the discretion of the appointing authority 
One of the members of the Board shall be 
a member of the administration of the 
University. The remaining members of 
the Board shall be equally divided be- 
tween students and members of the 
University faculty. Both undergraduates 
and graduate students shall be repre- 
sented on the Board at all times. The 
student members of the Board shall be 
chosen (if undergraduates) by lot from th« 
members of all existing judicial boards 
and (if graduate students) by lot from a 
panel to be maintained by the student 
members of the Graduate Student Associ 
ation. The faculty members of the Board 
shall be chosen by lot from a panel of 
not less than thirty (30) to be maintained 
by the senate of the appropriate campus, 
and in the absence of such list by the 
chancellor. The members of the Board 
shall select the chairman. More than one 
Board may be established from time to 
time at the discretion of the appointing 
authority. A majority vote of the Board 
shall be sufficient to decide any case that 
may come before it. 

5. The following rules shall apply to any 
hearing conducted by the Board: 

(a) A student shall file with the Board 
his address to which notice of its decision 
may be mailed, and the mailing of such 
decision to such address shall be con- 
clusively presumed to comply with the 
notification required by the first sentence 
of Paragraph 10 hereof. All hearings 
shall be open to the public, but the Board 
may restrict the number of observers to 
that which the hearing room may com- 
fortably accommodate. A student 
appearing before the Board may request 
that the hearing shall be closed to the 
public, and this request shall be honored 
by the Board. Sequestration of witnesses 
may be ordered. The Board may exclude 
from the hearing any person, other than 
the student charged, whose conduct
