Meet the University 

The first step in becoming 
acquainted with the University of 
Maryland at College Park family 
is an introduction to its members. 
Read on for background, history 
and trivia about your University, 
as a well as a personal welcome 
from two prominent UMCP 




It is my pleasure to welcome you to the University of Maryland at 
College Park, and to tell you about some of the new, exciting changes 
we are making to enrich your undergraduate experience here. In many 
ways, you have entered select company. In a university noted for its 
size, this is the second year in a row that the incoming freshman class is 
smaller, not larger than the one before. This means many of your 
classes will be smaller; you will have more opportunities to interact 
with your teachers, and you will get the advising and the assistance you 
need when and if you need it. The courses you take in your first two 
years in our newly revised undergraduate curriculum should challenge 
you to grow and explore as never before. By bringing our teaching and 
research communities closer together, you will have an opportunity to 
deepen and broaden your learning through freshman seminars, 
research projects, extracurricular activities, specialized studies and an 
enriched honors program. I believe undergraduates like you are the 
heart and soul of this University. We have a wonderful human 
diversity on our campus that will enrich your appreciation of the world. 
We have worked hard in the last few years to improve the living and 
learning environment for you, and I hope you will take advantage of all 
that College Park has to offer. In doing so, you become a vital member 
of our Unversity community. Again, welcome to College Park. I am 
very glad to have you here. 

William E. Kirwan, President 

Dear New Student: 

Entering college is a new experience containing exciting as well as threatening 
adventures. Entering into a new collegiate setting is much like traveling in a foreign 
land. There is a different language to adapt to, new buildings to locate and new friends 
and acquaintances to make. College is an exciting time, but it is also a time filled with 
major adjustments and some disappointments. Now is the time for you as a student 
to begin to take responsibility for yourself and your college experience. It is important 
for you to learn about the many services and resources the University of Maryland at 
College Park offers. How do you become a part of the UMCP community? 
Obviously, the first thing is to become interested in and do well in your academics. In 
spite of the many outside activities available here, your academics are the most 
important reason you are here. It is important for you to develop good study skills and 
do well in your classes. It is important to understand, however, not all of your 
education takes place inside the classroom. The learning that takes place outside of 
the classroom is very important to your complete educational development. An 
important part of your college experience will come from involvement in your college 
community. Meeting students from different places, understanding and learning about 
different value systems, and becoming involved in developmental services and clubs 
can help you gain many skills that will help you become a better, well-rounded 
individual. Welcome to the campus community. I'm glad you have chosen UMCP!

The University of Maryland at College Park 


The University of Maryland at College Park was chartered in 1856 as the Maryland Agricultural 
College under a provision secured by a group of Maryland planters. After a disastrous fire in 1912, the 
State acquired control of the college and bore the cost of rebuilding. In accordance with state 
legislation, the University of Maryland system was formed, July 1, 1988. At that time, the five 
institutions of University of Maryland , and the six institutions of the Board of Trustees of State 
Universities and Colleges merged to from the University of Maryland system. Currently under the 
direction of a single Board of Regents, the system includes: Bowie State University, Coppin State 
College, Frostburg State University, Salisbury State University, Towson State University, University of 
Baltimore, University of Maryland at Baltimore, University of Maryland at Baltimore County, 
University of Maryland at College Park, University of Maryland at Eastern Shore and the University of 
Maryland University College. The system also includes four major research and service facilities. 

The University of Maryland at College Park is spread over 1,378 acres which encompass an excess 
of 200 buildings. There are 35,000 students, both undergraduate and graduate, who come from a variety 
of backgrounds ranging from the country or small towns to cities, suburbs, cosmopolitan areas and 
provinces. Undergraduate majors are available in 110 areas of study. Students have the option of 
creating their own program of individual study with the assistance of a faculty advisor. The diverse 
student population allows students to learn a great deal outside of the classroom through interaction 
with their peers. 

The Mission of UMCP 

As the flagship campus of The University of Maryland System, College Park bears a major 
responsibility for public higher education in Maryland. The mission of UMCP is to provide the 
opportunity for an affordable high quality undergraduate and graduate education to all Maryland 
citizens. College Park offers the state's most comprehensive undergraduate program and is Maryland's 
major center for graduate education and research. The campus takes special responsibility for the 
dissemination of knowledge, expertise and culture to the citizens of the state through its extensive 
public service programs. This three-part mission is based on the idea that each of its elements is 
complemented and enhanced by the other, yielding an institution of significant strength and of great 
importance to the state of Maryland and the nation. To enhance the achievement of this mission, 
UMCP is committed to improving the quality of life for its students, faculty and staff. 

The Composition of UMCP 

The University of Maryland at College Park is comprised of 12 Colleges and two schools, which 
encompass all academic majors. In addition, the Office of Undergraduate Studies serves as the 
advising location for those students who are Undecided, Allied Health or Pre-Business Majors. 

• College of Agriculture • School of Architecture 

• College of Arts and Humanities • College of Behavioral and Social Sciences 

• College of Business and Management • College of Computers, Mathematics 

• College of Education and Physical Sciences

The earl's helmet 

The earl's coronet 

Crossland family shield 



Calvert family shield 

Year University of Maryland at College Park was chartered 

Anatomy of the University Seal 

The University Seal is an adaption of the Great Seal of 1648 of the state of Maryland. The seal 
bears a shield of the coats of arms of the Calvert and Crossland families, Maryland's first settlers. 
Topping the shield are an Earl's coronet and a helmet. The farmer and fisherman on either side of the 
shield symbolize the bounty of Maryland's land and waters. The date 1856 represents the founding date 
of the University of Maryland at College Park. 


Maryland we're all behind you, 

Raise High the black and gold, 

For there is nothing half so glorious. 

As to see our team victorious. 

We've got the team boys, 

We've got the steam boys. 

So keep on fighting don't give in. 

M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D, Maryland will win! 


Fight, fight, fight for Maryland, 

Honor now her name again. 

Push up the score. Keep on fighting for more, 

For Maryland, GO TERPS! 

And we will fight, fight, fight for terrapins. 

Keep on fighting 'till we win. 

So sing out our song as we go marching along. 

To victory!!! 


Hail Alma Mater, 

Hail to thee Maryland, 

Steadfast in loyalty. 

For thee we stand. 

Love for the black and gold, 

Deep in our hearts we hold, 

Singing thy praise forever, 

Throughout the land. 


School Colors: Black/Gold RedAVhite 

The University's colors are the same as the state colors . Black and gold are derived from the 
Calvert Family shield while red and white are derived from the Crossland family shield. These two 
families were Maryland's first settlers. 

School Mascot: Diamondback Terrapin named Testudo 

The name Testudo is the biological name of a particular species of terrapins. By the way.. .a terrapin 
is amphibious, while a turtle is not! Legend has it that if you rub the nose on the statue of Testudo, 
found in front of McKeldin Library, you will have good luck. 

Byrd Beach 

A springtime tradition at Maryland. ..looking for "beachhke conditions"? Students go to Byrd 
Stadium to "catch some rays" during the warm weather to improve their tans. The aluminum bleachers 
make for great tanning conditions as the sun is reflected from all sides.. .its an outdoor tanning booth! 


Each fall, students at Maryland gear up for one of the biggest events of the year.. .Homecoming. 
Many activities are planned to welcome alumni back to their alma mater as well as to get students on 
campus involved. Activities for students include: the Homecoming Parade, a Talent Show, a Powder 
Puff football tournament, and a campus-wide Pep Rally/Bonfire the night before the game.. .If you're 
interested in becoming involved in this special event, you can contact the OFFICE OF CAMPUS 
ACTIVITIES (x5605) for more information. 

The New Student Celebration 

Each fall new students are welcomed to the College Park family with a picnic on McKeldin Mall. 
Come out for balloons, a free picnic lunch, the band, and the Terp as faculty, staff, administrators and 
current UMCP students gather to meet you! 


What would a university be 
without academics? This chapter 
contains information for 
academic success at UMCP. 
From advisors to transferring 
credits; from U.S.P. 's to G.PA. 's, 
you will find the details you 
need... in alphabetical order. 

Academic Advising 

Academic advisors are available for all 
students. If you've decided on a major, look in 
the Schedule of Classes or check your 
department for the person to contact. If you are 
an undecided major, you can see an advisor at 
the Undergraduate Advising Center in room 
1117 of Hornbake Library. At least once a 
semester it's a good idea to get together with 
your advisor to choose courses, check 
requirements and make sure you're on the right 
track. However, don't limit your visits to 
registration times. Whenever you need it, 
advisors will help you find information about 
such things as career choices, the job market, 
internships, special work opportunities, etc. 
Don't wait until your senior year to see an 
advisor, see one NOW! They are here to make 
your academic life less traumatic and more 

For more information, be sure to check the 
current Undergraduate Catalog, the Schedule of 
Classes, or call 454-2733 or 454-3040. 

Pre-Major Advising 

Prior to admittance to a selective admissions 
program, your "advising home" will probably be 
one of the liberal colleges. A pre-major advisor 
will help you choose classes each semester and 
sort out your intentions and hopes for competing 
for a place in the selective major of your choice. 
The following locations serve students in 
pre-major categories: 

• College of Arts and Humanities 

• College of Behavioral and Social Sciences 

• College of Computer, Mathematical, and 
Physical Sciences 

• Office of Undergraduate Studies 

Pre-Professional Advising 

Although pre-medicine, pre-dcntistry, 
pre-veterinary medicine, etc. are not majors, 
there arc specific courses students need to take 
in order to qualify for admission to professional 
studies in these areas after graduation. Certain 
faculty members have been designated as 
advisors for students planning to apply for 
admission to schools of medicine, dentistry, 
podiatry, osteopathic medicine, optometry and 

veterinary medicine. Students should consult 
these advisors in addition to their major advisors 
early in their college careers. These advisors can 
be particularly helpful in providing accurate 
information about professional school admission 
requirements and can help students develop 
appropriate strategies for gaining 
admission. Names and office locations of 
pre-professional advisors appear in each 
edition of the "Schedule of Classes." 

Arbitrary and Capricious Grading 
Appeal Procedure 

If you feel an instructor has given you an unfair 
grade, there is a policy that can help you. The 
Arbitrary and Capricious Grading Policy which 
is explained in detail in the Undergraduate 
Catalog is specifically designed to help students 
who have a grade dispute. Before filing a formal 
appeal, students are urged to resolve grievances 
informally with the instructor or the Chair of the 
Department offering the course. 

Advanced Placement 

Advanced Placement scores can be 
interpreted by your college advisor. AP credits 
are posted on your transcript as transfer work. 

Choosing A Major 

Haven't chosen a major yet? Thinking about 
changing your major? 

You have lots of company among your fellow 
students. It's estimated that almost half of the 
entering freshman class haven't chosen a major, 
even if they say they have. On the average, 
students at College Park change majors two or 
three times while they're here. So, there's 
certainly nothing unusual about not having a 
major right away or about changing to a new one. 

Unfortunately, some students take more time 
than is really necessary to make their choice, 
mostly because they wail for "inspiration" to 
strike or for something to "interest" them. It just 
doesn't work that way. Choosing a major takes 
time, some persistence, a lot of decision-making 
and a personal interest in your own future. It can 
also be a lot of fun. 
Here are some "tips" to think about. 

• See an advisor or career counselor for more 
information and assistance. 

• Learn a lot about yourself. Think about your 
interests, skills and abilities.Think about what 
you would like to do with your life after 
getting your degree. Look to see if you can tie 
all of these together and "fit" them into a 
major offered here. 

• Find out about the job market and the kinds 
of opportunities you can expect to find once 
you graduate in a particular major. 

• Consider your feelings about going on to a 
graduate or professional school. For some 
majors this is expected. 

• Familiarize yourself with the many academic 
opportunities available at College Park. 
Some students overlook good courses and 
programs simply because they don't know 
they're being offered. 

• Be confident about your ability to make good 
choices. You know more about your 
expectations for yourself than anyone else. 
Remember, there won't be just one, "perfect" 

major for you. There'll be several that will look 
good. Pick the one that best expresses what you 
are and what you'd like to become. 

College/Major Changes 

College and major changes may be made at any 
time, the only restrictions being Board of 
Regents limitations on enrollment. Forms to 
initiate these changes are available at all college 
offices and at the Registration Office, located on 
the first floor lobby in the Mitchell Building. 
Refer to the organizational chart on the back of 
the form to verify that you have processed all the 
necessary changes and are using the correct 

Computing Averages 

Use the following formulas; 

1. Quality Points of a course (QPs) = Number 

of credits for the course multiplied by the 
numerical equivalent of the grade received in 
the course. 

2. Grade Point Average (GPA) = Quality 

Points Earned divided by the Number of 
credits attempted. 

Diploma Application 

Students need to apply during the schedule 
adjustment period of the semester in which they 
expect to complete their degree requirements. 
Consult your Dean's Office for application

Not all students will be admitted into certain 
majors. Rather, they will complete a "pre-major" 
program and compete for selective admission on 
the basis of specific criteria, usually overall grade 
point average, standardized test scores, and/or 
your performance in specific classes. Some 
programs also ask for examples of creative work. 
In a few cases, letters of recommendation are 
needed. If you have been admitted as a 
"pre-major" student (i.e. pre-business, 
pre-design, pre-architecture, etc.), you have 
indicated an aspiration to enter that major. A 
pre-major program, however, is not a major. 
Thus, it is wise to consider an alternative major. 
Alternatives can be discussed with your 
pre-major advisor. 

Transfer Credit Evaluation 

Libraries : See Resources 

Math Placement Exam 

All students who do not have credit for 
college level calculus must take the math 
placement exam. A sample exam is included in 
the New Student Packet. 

This placement exam is taken seriously. It 
serves to determine your initial placement into a 
math course, the number of semesters it will take 
for you to complete your chosen sequence of 
mathematics courses and it represents current 
knowledge . This exam is of much greater 
importance in your mathematics placement than 
previous acheivement scores or coursework. If 
you have any questions concerning the exam, call 
the Department of Mathematics, Undergraduate 
Office at 454-2746. 

Your college advising office will review the 
transcripts of any previous college-level work, 
provided it was done at a school with a regional 
accreditation. Two types of judgement are made 
about transfer work: 

1) Can a course transfer? 

If so, you will earn credit toward the 
minimum of 120 semester hours needed 
to graduate. 

2) Is a course applicable? 

That is, it can be used toward a specific 
university, college or major requirement. 
For many transfer students, the transcript is 
not up-to-date on the day of orientation. It is 
useful to make certain that your previous school 
has sent your latest academic records. It might 
be wise to schedule an appointment with your 
academic advisor just after the beginning of your 
first semester in order to do another review of 
your transfer work. 


University Studies Program 

The following is a description of the courses needed to meet the requirements of the University Studies 
Program, as well as an explanation of several academic terms used on campus.

Taken after student has completed 56 credit hours, from two departments outside of major. 

Minimum Requirements for Satisfactory Undergraduate Progress and Graduation 

1. A minimum of 120 credits of successfully completed (not I, F, or W) course credits is required for 

graduation in any degree curriculum. Credits transferred or earned during prior admissions 
terminating in academic dismissal or withdrawal and followed by re-admission, will be applicable 
toward meeting credit requirements for a degree. 

2. Academic retention is based solely upon grade point average (G.P.A.). The significance of the 

cumulative grade point average (cumulative G.P.A.) varies according to the number of credits 

a. Semester Academic Honors will be awarded to a student who completes within any given 
semester 12 or more credits (excluding courses with grades of P and S) with a semester G.P.A. 
of 3.5 or higher. This notation will be placed on the individual's transcript. 

b. Satisfactory Performance applies to those students with a cumulative G.P.A. between 2.0 
and 4.0. 


3. Students with a cumulative G.P.A. of less than 2.0 fall into one of three categories: Unsatisfactory 
Performance, Academic Warning, and Academic Dismissal. The cumulative G.P.A. that defines 
each of the categories varies according to the credit level as noted below: 




























4. Credits completed with grades A, B, C, D and F, but not P and S, will be used in computation of the 

semester and cumulative G.P.A. Marks of I, W and NGR will not be used in the computation of 
semester and cumulative G.P.A. 

5. Students with an unsatisfactory performance for any semester will be urged in writing to consult 
their advisors. 

a. Students on academic warning will have this fact noted on their transcripts and will be 
urged in writing to consult with their advisors prior to the beginning of the next semester. 
Students who receive an academic warning in any semester will not be allowed to add or drop 
courses in the following semester or register for the next proposed registrations, 
b. Any student with 60 or more credits attempted who thereafter receives academic warning 
for two consecutive semesters will be academically dismissed. Students who are academically 
dismissed will have this action entered on their transcript. 

6. No student transferring to the University of Maryland at College Park from outside The University 
of Maryland System will be subject to academic dismissal at the end of the first semester as long as 
the student obtains a cumulative G.P.A. of 0.23 or more. (A student who would otherwise be 
subject to academic dismissal will receive an academic warning.) Thereafter, such a student will be 
subject to the normal standards of academic progress. This provision does not apply to students 
reinstated or re-admitted to the College Park campus. 

7. Reinstatement after academic dismissal. 

a. A student who has been academically dismissed and who is reinstated will be academically 
dismissed again if minimum academic standards are not met by the end of the first semester 
after reinstatement (see 7b). In the computation of the cumulative G.P.A., all credits 
attempted at any University of Maryland System schools will be used. 

b. Under unusual circumstances, the Faculty Petition Board may set more rigorous 
requirements for the semester in which a reinstated student returns, or may allow a lengthened 
period (not to exceed two semesters) to reach the minimum or set academic standards. 

8. A student may repeat any course; however no student may be registered for a course more than 

three times. If a student repeats a course in which he or she has already earned a mark of A, B,C, 
D, P or S, the subsequent attempt shall not increase the total hours earned toward the degree. Only 
the highest mark will be used in computation of the student's cumulative average. Under unusual 
circumstances, the student's dean may grant an exception to this pohcy. 

9. Any appeal regarding the regulations governing academic warning and academic dismissal shall be 

directed to the Faculty Petition Board, which shall be authorized to grant relief in unusual cases if 
the circumstances warrant such action. 


Advising Checklist 

The following is a list of questions that you as a first semester student will probably want to ask 
your academic advisor, either today or at a future meeting. If you have any other questions for your

Office of Minority' Student Education 

1101 Hornbake Library 


The University community is a rich blend of 
students, faculty and staff from all over the 
country and the world. Understanding different 
cultures and gaining exposure to different per- 
sonalities is an important aspect of college life. 
These challenges can also cause problems. 
Difficulties in adjusting to living with and sharing 
a room with another student is not uncommon. 
This is especially true if you have never had to 
share a room with a brother or sister. Loud 
stereos, borrowing personal articles, keeping 
different hours and having different personal 
habits are common roommate complaints. 

Many college students have not yet learned to 
be sensitive to the needs of people outside their 
own families. The opportunity to learn to adjust 
and to negotiate with others is a vital step in 
becoming an adult.

Dealing with Stress 


As a college student, there will be many 
demands placed upon you by professors and 
coursework, by friends and family and by you. 
STRESS is your body's physical and emotional 
reaction to these demands or pressures. You 
can't expect to eliminate stress from your college 
life nor would you want to. Optimal levels of 
stress keep you alert and help you perform well. 
Stress is a sign that you are alive and well and 
meeting the challenges of campus life. It is only 
when stress becomes extreme, is never-ending or 
when you don't have the necessary coping skills 
that it becomes a problem by turning into 
DISTRESS. There are many ways to cope with 
the pressures of being a student prevent yourself 
from becoming distressed. Some of these 

1. Being prepared for activities or events in 
your life, both academic and social. Letting 
things go until the last minute is a sure way to 
increase pressure beyond your tolerance point. 

2. Taking care of yourself physically. Get 
enough sleep, try to eat well and regularly, and 
get regular exercise. Your general physical 
condition is an important factor in determining 
how well you tolerate stress. 

3. Taking care of yourself mentally. 
Compliment yourself on your efforts and 
accomplishments. Avoid being overly critical of 
yourself. Much pressure is internally imposed by 
being too hard on yourself. 

4. Scheduling some type of relaxation into 
your daily routine. Relaxing, enjoyable activities 
help you unwind from the day's pressure and 
regroup for tomorrow's. 

5. Don't be afraid to ask for help or seek 
support from friends. One of the best ways to 
alleviate stress is to spend time with people you 
like talking over problems or just having a good 

6. Finally, if you find yourself overwhelmed 
and distressed, seek help from one of the many 
campus resources available to you. The 
Counseling Center offers stress management 
workshops as well as counseling to help you 
better cope with pressure. The Learning 
Assistance Center, the Mental Health Service at 

the University Health Center, your dormitory 

staff, and the faculty are all there to help you. 

Dr. Kathy Zaniostny, Counseling Center 

Facing Changing Valu 


The next four years of college will be some of 
the most stimulating and challenging of your life. 
You will be exposed to new ideas, different 
people, alternative lifestyles and opposing belief 
systems all of which can be very exciting; but it 
can also be somewhat scary. Along with these 
new experiences comes a questioning of yourself, 
your values, and beliefs about the world. There 
will be times when you feel confused and anxious 
about this new information. Times when you 
question who you are and what you believe. In 
the face of this confusion, keep in mind that you 
do have choices. Sometimes, your confusion and 
questioning will lead you to modify your existing 
beliefs and values while other times you will 
become more committed to them. Remember 
that being in a state of confusion and questioning 
yourself and your values are is okay. After all, 
questioning is the first stage of learning; it is the 
first step to becoming a better person. If you 
find it difficult to sort through this new 
information and where you stand, don't be afraid 
to ask for help. Many of the people around you 
are going through or have gone through similar 
experiences. Talking to friends, professors, 
residence hall staff, counseling center staff, the 
Mental Health Service at the University Health 
Center, or others in the campus community can 
give you a sense of perspective, make you feel 
better and help you realize that you're not alone. 

Dr. Kathy Zamostny, Counseling Center 


Starting the Perfect Semester 

Some of the most common causes of anxiety 
are irrational beliefs we hold about goals. For 

CHEA TING. How many times have you heard 
someone say "This semester I'm going to study 
four hours every day and all day Sunday." Or 
"I'm not going to argue with my roommate for 
the rest of the year." There's nothing wrong with 
challenging yourself to do better, but a 
reasonable goal doesn't demand perfection. 

MYSELF. It may be more uplifting to say "I'm 
going to be a better human being," but it is more 
helpful to be specific and concrete: "This 
semester I'll try to be more assertive with my 
roommate about partying in the room late at 
night." After all, why should you expect yourself 
to achieve your life goals in one semester? 

I'VE FAILED. You've promised yourself to stick 
with your diet. But then you're at a party where 
you see a pizza that's just oozing cheese and you 
can't resist. Or you get a B on the paper you 
were sure would get you an A. It is natural to feel 
disappointed, but if secretly the feeling is dark 
despair, you've probably found a way to convince 
yourself that you are a complete failure and 
unworthy of regard because of your lapse. 
What these beliefs have in common is the 
expectation that we be perfect. Look at how you 
feel about your hopes for the new semester. If 
you are more anxious and overwhelmed than 
hopeful you may have a problem. Ask yourself 
what will happen if you don't accomplish 
everything. Then ask yourself if it is true. For 
example, is it true that going off your diet means 
you are a failure? Is it true that your parents will 
literally kill you if you don't have a 4.0 G.P.A.? 
These questions will help lessen the anxiety. 
Then it will be easier to handle the 
disappointment, set more reasonable goals, and 
move on.

It's Not Only What You Know It's What 
You Do 

education. If only it were that simple. Some of 
the best and brightest college students can mer- 
rily waltz through their college years and wind 
up with a great job after graduation. Most of us, 
however, do well to give some thought and 
planning to our college years. Often, there is a 
tendency to make college major and career 
decisions based on "Where the jobs appear to 
be." Nothing could be farther from the truth. 
Answering hard questions such as "What to 
major in" and "What careers are best for me" 
requires serious thinking and work. Identifying, 
examining, exploring what your interests and 
skills are, and what you care about is the first 
step to making good career decisions. Here's a 
few other tips. 

Talk with counselors in the Career 
Development Center (3rd floor Hornbake 
Library), Counseling Center (Shoemaker Hall), 
or Undergraduate Advising Center (1117 
Hornbake Library) to start. 

Learn more about specific careers by getting 
acquainted with resources in the Career 
Development Center library, (books, 
audio-visual tapes, files, computerized 
information), talking to faculty attending Career 
Fairs, interviewing UMCP Alumni mentors. 

Experience your career choice before 
graduation. Jobs and internships can be 
arranged through the Job Referral Service (3rd 
floor Hornbake Library), or Experiential 
Learning Office, (0119 Hornbake Library). 
Contact these office early in your college 
years-don't wait until it's too late or you get so 
involved in other aspects of college that you are 
one of those graduates who say, "I never knew 
there was some one to help." Faculty and 
services are here to help you make your college 
career the beginning of an exciting career 
future. It's not what you know, it's what you do.

Development Center 

UMAPS Show you the Way 
Around Campus 

Go to college, study a little or a lot, have fun, 
get a job is a typical way to view college 

What are UMaps? UMaps are a series of six 
illustrated guides to areas of study, jobs, 
organization, and activities at UMCP. The 
guides organize campus options and 
opportunities into six interest areas. AT 
LEAST one of them is JUST for YOU. 



-find the right major 

-meet other students who share your 

-explore some potential careers 

-get involved in some activities that really 
interest you 

-get some career-related work experience 

-take some interesting courses 

The six types of UMAPS which include 
R-I-A-S-E-C. They describe students in the 
following ways: 

REALISTIC: Practical and straightforward, 
these students enjoy outdoor work, physical 
activity, and working with tools, machines and 

INVESTIGATIVE: These students are 
analytical and inquisitive, prefer solving abstract 
problems, and like theoretical scientific work. 

ARTISTIC: Independent and creative, these 
students are attracted to the visual and 
performing arts and communications. 

SOCIAL: These students are helpful and 
friendly, and they enjoy working with and for 
others through teaching, athletics, and health. 

ENTERPRISING: Enthusiastic and 
persuasive, these students enjoy positions of 
leadership, pubhc affairs, and business. 

CONVENTIONAL: These students are 
systematic and organized; they like to work with 
data and numbers. 

To use the UMAPS look up the letter or 
letters which best describe you. Inside the 
UMAP you will find information about possible 
majors, careers and interests you might want to 

For more information, contact the Career 
Development Center. You can also pick up 
UMAPS at various Student Service Offices on 
campus including the Office of Commuter 
Affairs and the Orientation Office (1195 Stamp 
Student Union). 

Budgeting Your Time 

Monday through Friday 9 to 5, is the standard 
40 hour work week. For most students the 
standard 40 hour work week could be enough 
time to go to all of their classes and complete all 
of their study for those classes. By following the 
guidelines listed below you could be on your way 
to an efficient time-management schedule. 

Time management begins with the assumption 
that we can control time if we use a few fairly 
simple techniques. In the ABC Time 
Management System the first step is to find five 
or ten minutes each day to plan. 

The next step in managing time is to make a 
list of all of the things we want to accomplish in a 
given amount of time (a semester, a week or, 
perhaps best, a given day). After you list all of 
the things you want, need or should do that day, 
prioritize the items on the list using "A" to 
designate the most important items, "B" to 
indicat the next most important, and "C" to 
indicate things that need to be done, but really 
aren't that important to you. When you finish 
prioritizing you should have identified the two or 
three most important things you want to do that 

The next step is probably the hardest part of 
time management. Completing the items you 
marked "A". When you have available time start 
working on those items you have marked "B". 
Suppose you only have fifteen minutes... It is 
better for you to complete a little bit of one of 
the top priorities than it is to complete two or 
three unimportant tasks. Some people call this 
technique "Work smarter, not harder". It is not 
the quantity of work you do, it is whether you 
completed the most important things you have to 

A second time management technique is to 
schedule your time, allotting time for class, 
study, work, recreation, etc. Using this technique 
you first write in committed time such as classes. 
Then carefully decide on when the best time is 
for you to schedule other activities. You may 
decide that you can study two hours each 
weekday from 3-5, and on Sunday through 
Wednesday evenings from 7-10. At any given 
time all you need to do is check your schedule to 
see if you have committed that time or if it is free 
time. If you would like assistance in designing a 
time-management system for yourself, you can 
go to the Learning Assistance Service in the 
Shoemaker building or call 454-2935. The staff 
will schedule an appointment for you to meet 
with a counselor.

Assistance Service

management process, pick up a scheduling grid

The cost of the permit is adjusted each 
year. However, at the beginning of the fall 
semester, you may place charges for the permit 
directly on your student bill at the time of 
registration. At any other time during the year 
payment must be made by cash or check.

to schedule a trial. If you appeal to SPAO you 
must go to the SPAO office, second floor

schedule by either adding a particular course or 
dropping the course from your schedule. Before

your schedule without academic penalty. After 
the ten day Scheduled Adjustment Period, and 
for the first ten weeks of classes, you may drop a 
course, maximum of four credits, and receive a 
"W" on your transcript. Questions about the use 
of the add-drop forms or process can be

Mitchell Building. 

Office of the Bursar 

Lee Building 

Q: Wlien will I receive a bill? 

A: If you attend one of the orientation sessions 
held before July 15, 1989 you should receive a 
combination bill schedule for Fall 1989 
around July 21, 1989. Those students who 
attend orientation after July 14th will receive 
a bill around August 25, 1989. 

Q: Wlien is payment of the bill due ? 

A: Payment for room, board, tuition and all 
associated fees is due in full by September 5, 


1989, whether or not youreceive a bill. Checks 
should be made payable to the University of 
Maryland and should include the student's social 
security number on the front of the check. 
Students may pay with Visa and MasterCard at 
the walk-up window at the Bursar's office, first 
floor lobby, Lee Building or with the mail in 

Q: What should I do if I don 't receive a bill? 

A: Write or call the Student Accounts Office on 
(301) 454-4832 as soon as possible if you have 
not received a bill before school starts. We 
will advise you if there are any problems 
regarding your registration or bill and or the 
correct amount to pay. The University cannot 
assume responsibihty for the non-receipt of 
bills so make sure the bill is paid in full by the 
first day of class to avoid additional charges 
and or penalties. 

Q: Wliat will happen if I don 'tpay the bill by the 
first day of class? 

A: The University of Maryland does not have a 
deferred payment plan. It is the policy of the 
University not to defer payment of fees on 
the basis of a pending application for 
financial assistance from an outside agency 
such as banks, Stafford student loan 
program, etc. Students who fail to pay their 
bill will have all University services severed, 
will be charged a $25.00 severance fee and 
have their account transferred to the State 
Central Collection Unit with a minimum 15% 
collection charge added. 

Q: Wliat will happen to my room and board if 
services are severed? 

A: Severance of housing services means that the 
student will be asked to vacate the room, the 
student's room will be assigned to another 
student and the student will be placed at the 
bottom of the waiting Hst once services are 
restored. For a student on board whose 
services are severed, no meals are served 
until the account is satisfied. 

Q: What do I do if I decide not to attend the 

A: Students who register and later decide not to 
attend the University must cancel their 
registration in writing with the Registrations 
office, prior to the first day of class to incur 

no financial obligation to the University. 
Failure to officially cancel your registration 
will result in being assessed charges even 
though you do not attend class. In addition, 
students on room and board should check 
each one of these separate contracts for the 
correct cancellation deadlines and 
procedures. Failure to cancel each one of 
these separate obligations (Registration, 
Dining Services, and Resident Life) will 
result in charges. Unfortunately, students 
tend to assume withdrawal from Registration 
cancels all obligations. That is not correct. 

Q: WJxom do I notify of a change of address ? 

A: Since many University communications are 
sent through the mail, it is imperative that an 
accurate and up-to-date address is 
maintained for you. Changes can be made to 
your local or permanent mailing addresses at 
any time by completing an Address Change 
Form at the Office of the Bursar, 1103 Lee 
Building or the Registrations Counter, 1st 
Floor Lobby Mitchell Building. 

Q: How do I obtain a refimd of a credit balance 
on my account? 

A: No credit balance is automatically refunded. 
That is, a student must file a request in 
writing to obtain a refund. This is done by 
addressing a letter to the Refund Unit, Office 
of the Bursar, or by completing a refund 
request form at the Student Accounts 
Counter, 1103 Lee Building or the 
Withdrawal Office, 1st Floor, Mitchell 
Building. It takes approximately two to three 
weeks, from the time a credit balance 
appears on the account and a refund request 
is received, until a check is mailed from the 
State Treasurer's Office in Annapolis. 

Q: Wliat do I do if I have been awarded financial 

A: University scholarships and grants will be 
credited directly to your account as long as 
you early-register for at least 12 credits. A 
check for any balance remaining will be 
available from the Office of the Bursar. Two 
important items should be noted regarding 
financial aid: 
1) In order to receive financial aid, the award 
letter indicating acceptance of the offered 


aid must be received by the office of Student 
Financial Aid. 
2) Students on scholarships and grants are ex- 
pected to maintain a semester credit load of 
12 credits. In the event a student drops 
below this level, the scholarship or grant is 
automatically cancelled leading to an 
indebtedness to the University. Any student 
considering dropping credits should contact 
their financial aid counselor before taking 
such action. 

Q: WJiat do I need to do to pick up my Financial 

Aid Check? 
A: All financial aid checks, including Stafford 
student loan, Perkins Loan grant and 
scholarships checks, are disbursed by 
appointment only. The Office of the Bursar 
will notify you by mail when there is a check 
available for you. Appoint ments must be 
made by telephoning 454-4429. 
Further infonnation regarding hilling 
infonnationjee schedules, disbursement of 
financial aid, etc.,can be found in:

Early Registration 

In the middle of each fall and spring term,

materials, and when the First Edition of the

is suggested for all students.) If you do not 
receive a registration invitation, contact your 
college office or the Registrations Office,

comprised of three cards: A paper registration 
card, a plastic photo transaction card, and (for 
those on a dining services board plan), a plastic 
photo dining hall card. These cards are used to 
gain admission to most events on campus; 
athletic, social, and cultural. They are used for 
identification to check out library materials,to 
gain entrance to the dining halls and to ride the 
campus shuttle. 

Photo Identification Cards 
Students are issued photo ID cards when they 
enroll at the Univer sity and continue to use that 
card during their entire enrollment. Replace- 
ment cost is $7, though the first card is free. 
Registration Card 
Also issued at the beginning of each semester 
is a registration card. Students registering early 
will receive their card attached to their 
combination class schedule and bill. Students 
registering later will be issued one after 
presenting proof of bill payment. The 
replacement cost is $1. 


Dining Hall ID Card 

Each student contracted with Dining Services 
for meals is issued a plastic photo I.D. card used 
for entrance to the dining hall. These cards are 
not transferable. Do not lend them out; if you 
are caught, your dining hall privileges can be 

NOTE: There will be a $12.00 replacement 
charge if the card is lost. Also, you must go to

Living in and around the UMCP 
campus is exciting. Whether you 
need information about 
off-campus housing, commuting, 
residence halls or even dining 
services... you can find it in 
''Living. " The chapter is 
organized into "Off-Campus 
Living," "On-Campus Living" and 
"Dining Service" information. 
Each sub-heading contains 
information in alphabetical order. 


Commuter Affairs 

1195 Stamp Union 
454-3645 or 454-5274 

Whether living with your parents or commuting 
from your own apartment, the Office of 
Commuter Affairs (OCA) sponsors valuable 
services for you. Check with us if you need 
assistance with: Off-Campus Housing 
Information, Commuter Information, 
Transportation or Parking Information. 

• Off-Campus Housing: 

OCA maintains up-to-date computerized 
listings of furnished and unfurnished rooms, 
apartments, and houses (both vacant and to 
share) which are for rent in the area; they are 
organized by cost, type of housing and distance 
from campus. Personalized printouts tailored to 
your individual needs can be requested to 
simplify your housing search, ^eer advisors are 
available from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., 
Monday-Friday to provide assistance. Area 
maps, apartment directories, a landlord 
complaint recommendation file, model leases, 
and information on tenant landlord rights and 
responsibilities are also available in the office to 
aid in your housing search. 

• Transportation: 

Students who are interested in carpool options 
can gain access to the individual matchup 
program, student-sponsored regional carpool 
programs, and priority parking through 
contacting the OCA. The office has schedules 
for Shuttle-UM (the UM transit system for 
students), as well as for Metrobus and Metrorail 
services. For an overview of transportation 
available to students pick up a copy of our 
brochure, "Transportation Alternatives." 

• SettHng In: 

UMaps were developed by OCA as a special 
type of guide to campus. They can help you learn 
about opportunities on campus which best fit 
your particular interests. OCA also has a 
number of brochures which can help you 

discover the best places on campus to eat or 
hang out. If you are looking for a way to get 
involved on campus, OCA can tell you about the 
student organization for commuters, University 
Commuter's Association. As a commuter, you 
are already a member, and your input and 
energy is always appreciated. Please stop by or 
give us a call to take advantage of the services 
designed for you. 

• Carpooling 

Parking on campus can be challenging, but 
manageable with a little planning. If you are 
going to be driving to campus and are not in a 
carpool, try to arrive in your assigned lot at least 
twenty minutes before class. If you can't park in 
your assigned lot because it's full, don't panic. 
Lot 4 serves as an overflow lot throughout the 
semester. If finding a parking space is getting 
you down, consider carpooling. If you and at 
least two other students form a carpool, you are 
eligible to register with the Office of Commuter 
Affairs for a priority parking spot in a centrally 
located located faculty lot. Sign-up begins the 
first day of the Fall and Spring semesters. In 
addition, don't forget Shuttle-UM, the 
University transit system. You are delivered and 
picked up in front of the Stamp Union. There is 
no better way to avoid parking hassles 
completely. Shuttle-UM also serves many area 
apartments, shopping centers and connects with 
the Metro. For further information, call: 
Carpool information at 454- 3645 or Shuttle-UM

Types of Living Arrangements On-Campus 

Residence Halls 

A range of physical settings is available in the 
University residence halls. 

High-rise residence halls dominate the north 
side of the campus. The "complexes" or 
groupings of high-rise halls around a central 
dining facility are near most athletic arenas and 
other recreational resources of the campus. As 
many as 550 students live in a high-rise hall. 

Older Georgian/Colonial-Style residence halls 
are located on the south side of campus. These 
"Hill Area" halls in the North Hill and South Hill 
clusters of residence halls are close to most 
libraries and the academic core of the campus. 
These halls are smaller, not more than three or 
four stories high and house as from 35 to 260 

In these traditional "dormitory-style" residence 
halls, there are bed/study rooms for two students 
(as well as singles for upperclass students and 
triples or quads). Each floor also has limited 
lounge and meeting space for small groups of 
residents and friends. Room sizes and features 
vary considerably with the age and physical 
layout of each hall. 

It is to these traditional "dormitory-style" 
residence halls that entering freshmen and 
transfer students should expect to be assigned. 

Within many of the older residence halls on 
South Hill, renovations have been completed. 
Apartments with kitchens or kitchenless suites 
for four to eight students, in the place of double 
bedrooms and communal baths, are common in 
these buildings. Freshmen and new transfer 
students should not expect to initially be 
assigned to these apartments or suites. 

Apartment units for four to six students are 
located in Leonardtown, found across Route 1 
from the main part of campus. Apartments are 
reserved for upper-class students; freshman and 
new transfer students are not assigned here. 
Apartments include fully equipped kitchens, 
private baths, all furnishings and carpeting. 

People to Know 

Your Resident Assistant or R.A. is an 
undergraduate student hired to help you make 
the most of your experience in the residence 
halls. Your R.A. is available for advice, 
information, conflict resolution and, most of all, 
as a friend. Get to know your R.A. for he or she 
can make your stay here easier and more 

Your Resident Director or R.D. is a 
professional staff member who manages your 
building , yet is available to help with the 
management of particular student concerns. 

Housing Rules/Guidelines 

Roommate Assignments 

New students are assigned randomly, so there 
is no way for you to choose where or with whom 


you will be assigned. However, efforts are made 
to satisfy students' preferences in the following 

Co-educational or single-sex hall 
In the co-educational halls, men and women 
are assigned on separate floors or wings of the 
same building. More than 40 per cent of campus 
residents live in co-educational halls. 

Limited or unlimited visitation privileges 

In most halls, the residents are not limited in 
hours of the day they may have guests of the 
opposite sex visit in their rooms. In other halls, 
limited visitation hours are maintained, meaning 
that guests of the opposite sex are not permitted 
from 12 midnight to 8:00 a.m. weeknights and 
1:30 a.m. to 8:00a.m. weekends. There are no 
curfews or time restrictions for residents to enter 
or leave their halls. 

Smoker preferred as a roommate 

If do not mind rooming with someone who is a 
smoker, than indicate that on your application 
for housing. 

Room changes 

Sometimes, the two students assigned together 
in a room are not able to work out a cooperative 
roommate relationship. The R.A. on the floor 
can be called on to help work out differences. 
Sometimess it is necessary to help students 
pursue a room change. You and your roommate 
will find that some expectations or rules must 
exist in residence halls as they must in any 
community of people. 

Because the residence halls are on campus to 
support your academic purpose for being here, 
most rules exist to guide and support learning 
and respect for others while encouraging 
positive interaction between students. Generally 
speaking, these standards rest on one simple 
notion, that each resident give the same courtesies, 
respect and consideration to others that you expect 
for yourself. In the community of students living 
in a University residence hall, special emphasis is 
placed on each student being able to study and 

While you are a student at the University, you 
must abide by expectations stated in the Code of 
Student Conduct (located in the kNow Chapter 
of this handbook). As a resident on the campus, 
you must abide by expectations stated in the 
Residence Halls Agreement and other residence 
halls documents. For further information about 

these and other rules, please contact the Office 
of Resident Life. 

Greek Housing 

Office of Campus Activities 

1191 Stamp Union 


The Office of Campus Activities helps to 
integrate the fratenities and sororities with the 
rest of the campus community. The office serves 
to advise and coordinate fraternity and sorority 
members in order to help them get the most out 
of the Greek experience. 

Fraternity and sorority houses provide living 
spaces for 1,800 Maryland students. Living in a 
"Greek House" provides the chance to 
experience all aspects of community living. Most 
students living in the houses are members of the 
Greek community. 

If you have any questions or simply want more 
information about the sororities or fraternities, 
just stop by the Campus Activities Office located 
in the Stamp Union and they'll be glad to help

Meal Plan Information 

Catering Services 

Employment Information. 


Dining Services offers several meal plans and a 
variety of services to meet the tastes and 
schedules of the entire campus community. 
Dining rooms, restaurants and eateries are 
conveniently located in all areas of campus and ' 
are open hours that fit anyone's dining schedule. 

The Point Plan 

Any student may select the Point Plan; 
however, students entering the resident halls 
must select one of the plans. The point system 
works with a set amount of money deposited into 
an account as points. Each point is equal to a 
penny. A magnetic card is issued and each time 
a food purchase is made the card is presented to 
the cashier instead of cash. The amount of the 
purchase is deducted from the account and the 


remaining balance is displayed on the register or 
on a receipt. 

There are three options to the point plan: 
Dining Room Plan: A weekly alottment of points 
are distributed to the students throughout the 
semester. This plan is only good at certain 
campus locations including: Cambridge West, 
Ellicott Diner, Denton and South Campus 
Dining Rooms and North Woods Catering. 
Campus Plan: A lump sum alottment of points is 
given at the beginning of the semester and 
divided into two meal card accounts, the 
Resident Card and the Red Express Card. 
Budgeted Plan: A weekly sum of points is alotted 
on the Resident Card, and a lump sum of points 
is alotted at the start of the semester on the Red 
Express card. All points must be used by the 
end of the semester or they are forfeited. The 
two meal cards may be used in the following 

Resident Card: accepted at four resident dining 
rooms including Cambridge West, Ellicott 
Diner, Denton, South Campus and North Woods 

Red Express Card: accepted at the four 
resident dining rooms plus the Stamp Student

Vie capitol city of Maryland is beautiful, 
historic Annapolis. Located on the water, less 
than one-hour from campus, the downtown docks 
are a perfect setting for a sunny afternoon 
shopping spree, sightseeing or for a moonlit walk 
along the water. WJiile there, visit the State House, 
the Maritime Museum, the Naval Academy, a 
variety of historic inns or take a sailing lesson. 
For easy access, take the Beltway South (toward 
Richmond) to exit 19 (Route 50 East/John 
Hanson Highway) and follow the signs to the 
"historic downtown" exit. For more infomiation, 
contact the Annapolis Office of tourism. 


Inner Harbor 

One of the great ports of the world, Baltimore 
has undergone a recent and remarkable 
renaissance. Baltimore's inner harbornow glistens 
with new office towers, quaint shops, and ethnic 
restaurants representing its many colorful 
neighborhoods. James Rouse Harbor Place Mall 
and the new National Aquarium anchor the Inner 
Harbor and have transformed it into a cultural 
magnet that each year attracts thousands of 

Baltimore Orioles 

Also located downtown is the historical 
Memorial Stadium where you can see the famous 
Baltimore Orioles. For ticket infomiation and 
game schedule contact: TJie Ticket Office in the 
Stamp Union Basement Phone : 454-2803.

Washington, D,C. 


Downtown Washington D.C. boasts many of 
the nation's most famous historical buildings, 
monuments and documents. Some of these 

include: the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington 
Monument, the Vietnam Memorial, Arlington 
National Cemetary (across the Potomac River in 
Arlington, Virginia), the Capitol Building the 
Whitehouse, and several great museums including 
the Smithsonian, Museum of Science and 
Industry, National Gallery of Art, the Library of 
Congress and much more!!! Because the 
University campus is located only nine miles from 
downtown, Washington is easily accessible. TJie 
easiest mode of transportation to and from 
downtown is the Metrorail system. The following 
is a description of how to use the "metro" to get to 
various downtown locations. 


Transportation seems to breakdown into two 
categories: the "haves" and the "have nots". Vie 
"haves" are those of you who are fortunate enough 
to have a car available to you. Since parking is so 
tight in downtown Washington, we suggest, if 
possible, that you do not drive. Vie "have nots" 
then, are those of you who do not have a car 
available and were smart enough to adhere to our 
advice given above. Washington is fortunate to 
have a very reliable bus system and a subway 
system that is among the most modem in the 

Your first trip downtown would be best 
accomplished on a weekend, since it is less 
crowded and the people downtown on weekends 
(tourists) will be as lost as you. Start your trip by 
boarding a Metro-Bus in front of the Stamp Union 
(Route R-2 southbound) and stay on until 
Brookland Metro Station. Vie Metro-Bus stops in 
front of the Union every 60 minutes and will cost 
about $1.25 on weekends. Make sure you bring 
plenty of change since the bus drivers do not make 
change. Schedules for other rates are available at 
the Stamp Union Information Desk. 

Entering the Metrorail station may make you 
feel as if you have slipped ahead into the Twilight 
Zone. Vie Metro stations are all ultramodern and 
very automated. At the entrance of every metro 
station is a placard that details the Metro farecard 
systems. It is a three-step process to obtain a Metro 
farecard. First, find a farecard machine and 
insert a one dollar bill into the machine (wrinkled 
dollars don't work well). Next, select the farecard 
value you need (it will automatically show the 
amount you inserted). Lastly, push the button on 
the right and remove your farecard. Use your 
farecard to enter the Metro system by inserting it 


into the gate with the green light and white arrow. 
Upon exiting the Metro system, insert the card 
again. It will be returned to you if there is money 
left on it. 


Once on the Metro system at Brookland, you 
will need to travel on the Red line until you arrive 
at Metro Center. You will then get off at Metro 
Center and transfer to the Orange Line going 
towards New Carrollton or on the Blue Line 
toward National Airport. Once having transferred 
lines, disembark at the Smithsonian exit, and you 
will fmd yourself in the middle of all the museums, 
the Wliite House, Washington Monument, and the 

First priority should be a perusal of some of the 
museums that interest you. Vie Smithsonian 
Institute is not one building but a series of over ten 
different museums. A place to start might be the 
Air and Space Museum, which contains incredible 
displays of aviation and space history, as well as a 
planetarium, and two films "To Fly" and the 
"Living Planet" which are spectacular scenic 
voyages around our globe on a five story high 
screen. TJiese two films are an absolute must for 
Washington explorers. 

Another Smithsonian must is the East Wing in 
the National Gallery of Art. Construction was 
completed on this architectural wonder in 1978. A 
walk around the building with its moving 
sidewalk, indoor waterfall, and perhaps a bite to 
eat in their excellent cafeteria will highlight any trip 
to the Smithsonian. No matter what part of the 
Smithsonian you visit, a fun and enjoyable day is 
yours. So, don't miss out on the opportunity to 


Washington is famous for both its fantastic 
restaurants and its wide variety of nightspots. 
Perhaps the greatest concentration of excellent 
restaurants, bars, and shops is in Georgetown. TJie 
heart of Georgetown is located on Wisconsin and 
M Streets downtown. Georgetown is largely a 
walking experience, with thousands of people on a 
sunny afternoon or on a clear Friday night 
wandering from place to place. Unlike the rest of 
Washington, it is easiest to drive into Georgetown 
and park as near as possible to the comer of 
Wisconsin and M Streets. 

There are many other areas that offer quality 
establishments that serve a variety of food and 

refreshments. Connecticut Avenue north and south 
ofDupont Circle (a Metro Rail station) is famous 
for its sandwich shops, movie theaters and 
restaurants. Another excellent area is on 
Pennsylvania Avenue north of the Capitol-south 
Metro stop. Tliis area, fondly called "Capitol 
Hill", has many ethnic restaurants where the 
executive crowd from Washington hang out.

Things To Do Or Join 

Campus Activities 

1191 Stamp Union 

Most new students come to the University 
seeking ways of getting involved. You may know 
that involvement in out-of-class activities is an 
excellent way to make new friends, expand your 
interests, learn more about yourself and others, 
and really become a part of campus life. 
Students who get involved are more likely to stay 
in school and graduate. Yet as a new member of 
the campus community - with classes, friends, 
and maybe a part-time job - how can you find out 
more about getting involved? 

A good place to start is the Office of Campus 
Activities, located in 1191 Stamp Union. 
Campus Activities serves as a major resource for 
student groups. We publish Pathfinder, which 


describes our student groups, a Registered 
Student Organization Directory, which lists 
contact information for over 360 student 
organizations, and The One Minute Newsletter, 
a biweekly calendar and information source. 

If you really want to become involved, keep 
your eyes open for Diamondback 
announcements and the numerous flyers posted 
on kiosks around campus. This is how most 
student groups get the word out. Don't be afraid 
to go to an initial meeting just to listen and check 
it out. 

Whether you're interested in contacting the 
Ski Club, finding out about concerts and plays, 
improving your leadership skills, or starting your 
own student group, don't let a lack of know-how 
keep you from getting started. Stop by the 
Office of Campus Activities. We'll be glad to 
help. Welcome to Maryland! 


At the beginning of each fall semester, the 
Stamp Student Union keeps its doors open until 
dawm with the annual All-Niter. Food 
demonstrations, movies, music, games and more 
programs than you can imagine are squeezed 
into every room, lounge and hallway of the

Greek Week 
April and Fraternity Row mean only one 
thing: Greek Week. The members of the 60 
fraternities and sororities combine their talents 
and energy in a week long celebration of the 
spirit and unity of the Greek System at 
Maryland. The week begins with a re-dedication 
ceremony, continues with a wide variety of 
events each day designed to enhance 
philanthropy, spirit, competition and the success 
of the Greek System. Regardless of the reasons, 
it's an experience guaranteed to create 
excitement in participants and/or observers. 


One of the biggest events of the year is 
Homecoming, a series of high-spirited 
competitive events and activities designed to get 
the entire campus charged up and ready for the 
Homecoming football game. A student

include Olympics, a Banner Contest, Talent 
Night, Pep Rally and Bonfire, and of course, the 
popular Homecoming Parade. Recent additions 
include a major concert and a University-wide 
philanthropy. Thanks to the members of the 
Black Student Coalition, a number of activities 
have been added to the traditional Homecoming 
lineup. Some of these new activities include the 
Fashion Show, Buffet Dinner, and Pan-Hellenic 


Council Step Show. For more information call

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 
minimize the likelihood of disturbing classes and other academic activities. However, such

followed. All equipment used in Central Mall must be secured through the OfTice of the Director of 
the Physical Plant or through the S.G.A. onice. 

(a) Public address systems, loudspeakers and other forms of sound amplifying equipment (except in

proval in writing at least 5 days in advance from the Facilities Use Committee by application to the

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 equipment must accept 
responsibility for any complaints or disturbances or disruption received from persons in University 
academic and or residence buildings. 


Policy On Demonstrations 

(As adopted by the University Senate, June 2, 1970) 
I.General Statement 
a. The University of Maryland cherishes the right of individual students or student groups to dissent 

and to demonstrate, provided such demonstrations do not disrupt normal campus activities, or in 

fringe 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 individual 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 organizations 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 library and or classrooms adjacent to the area and in compliance 
with the provisions contained in Ilg, 1-8. 

Failure to reserve space will not invalidate 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 reservation 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 equiv- 
alent 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 Ila above, unless the 
space has previously 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 President for Student Affairs. Students who participate in demonstrations 
which have not been approved may be considered in violation of University policy. (Except as 
provided in IIA, 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 government 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 contained in Ilg, 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, ralHes, "teach-ins", or picketing 
activities, the fact of group sponsorship or organization in no way relieves individuals of the 
responsibility 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 participate 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 student, faculty or staff members 
are not subject to University 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 activities in classroom buildings and the library will not be 


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 lie 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. Demonstrators 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 paraphernalia associated with a demonstration will not 
be carried into the building, 

7. University property must be protected at all times. 

8. The safety and well-being of members of the University community collectively and 

individually must be protected at all times, 
h. Complaints received from users of the Library or classrooms adjacent to the defined areas (Ila.) 
will be grounds for disciplinary action against individuals and/or groups sponsoring or 
participating in rallies, "teach-ins" or demonstrations 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/her representative in 

b. Should any member of the University Community wish to discuss or protest the internal policies of 

any recruiting organization, the Director of the Career Development Center must be contacted 
for assistance in communicating directly with the appropriate representatives of said 

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 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 Development 
Center facilities by those students, faculty, staff, and visitors who wish to conduct business within 
the framework of established placement programs. 

IV. Special Guidelines Pertaining to the Stamp Union 


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

corridors of the Stamp Union. 

b. Demonstrations may be held in assigned rooms of the Stamp Union by recognized student 

organizations following procedures for reserving space which have been outlined by the Stamp 
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 limitations as 
are imposed by State legislation and University regulations. These limitations 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 

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 safety factors are involved. 

Alcoholic Beverage Policy and Procedures 

Information contained in this section subject to change pending legislation. 


Regulations forbid unauthorized possession, 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 approval 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. 

3. All applicable State, County , and local alcoholic beverage and tax laws must be accommodated. 

Sponsors and or alcoholic event managers shall exercise due caution to ensure the following: 

a. No person under the legal age for drinking shall be sold or served alcoholic beverages. 

b. All sales of alcoholic beverages must cease promptly at 2:00 a.m. 

c. Maintenance of reasonable order and decorum with special concern for the avoidance of 

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

d. Alcoholic beverages may not be sold or furnished to any person who, at the time of the sale 

or exchange, is visibly under the influence of alcohol. 

4. 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. 

5. Appropriate planning and implementation 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 application, the responsibility for adherence to all of 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 contracting with the campus self-support agencies for facilities and services are 


specific exceptions from these procedures. Permission to serve alcoholic beverages must be obtained 
from the person or the department responsible for the operation of the facility. 


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

Smoking Policy 


A significant percentage of faculty, staff and students do not smoke. 

B. Smoke is offensive to many non-smokers. 

C. Smoke is harmful and even debilitating to some individuals due to their physical condition. 

D. There is evidence that suggests that there is at least a reasonable prospect that passive smoke 
inhalation is harmful to non-smokers. 


In response to the above considerations, it is hereby established as the policy of the College Park 
Campus to achieve a public environment as close to smoke-free as practicably possible. Obtaining and 
maintaining this result will require the willingness, understanding, and patience of all members of the 
Campus community working together. 
The following guidelines shall service to implement the Campus Smoking Policy: 

A. Smoking is prohibited in indoor locations where smokers and non-smokers occupy the same area. 
Such areas include: 

1. Academic areas: classrooms, lecture halls, seminar rooms, laboratories, libraries, computing 


2. Conference rooms, auditoria, exhibition areas, indoor athletic facilities, theaters, pavilions, 

and retail stores. 

3. Health facilities. 

4. Common public areas (shared spaces not fully enclosed by floor to ceiling partitions and 

doors) including: stairwells, elevators, escalators, lobbies, hallways, waiting rooms, 
reception areas, restrooms, and customer service areas. 

5. Any area in which a fire or safety hazard exists. 

B. Unit heads, or their designess, may establish the following locations as "Smoking Permitted 

1. Up to one-third of dining, large lounge and other large open spaces, as long as ventilation is 

adequate. Smoking of cigars and pipes, however, is prohibited. 

2. Rooms that have closed doors and floor-to-ceiling partitions as long as ventilation is 

adequate and non-smokers in adjacent areas are not exposed to second hand or sidestream 

3. The Director of the Stamp Union may, at his/her discretion, allow groups and organizations 

with permanent of fices in the Union to determine the smoking policy in those offices. Such 
individual policies must adhere to the restrictions set forth in Section III, B, 2 of this policy. 

4. The Director of the Stamp Union may, at his/her discretion, allow cigarette smoking by 

groups making use of the Grand Ballroom, the Colony Ballroom, the Atrium, and other 
rooms in the Union if he/she determines that it is appropriate to the nature of the event 

C. As a general rule, preferential consideration shall be given to non-smokers whenever it is clear 

that they are being exposed involuntarily to smoke. 

Unit heads, or their designees, are responsible for: 


A. Assuring that this policy is communicated to everyone within their jurisdiction and to all new 
members of the Campus community. 

B. Approving and designating Smoking Permitted Areas. (It is desirable but may not be possible to 

identify suitable smoking spaces in all buildings.) 

C. Implementing the policy and guidelines and assuring that appropriate notice is provided. 

Developing guidelines to embrace all the special circumstances in the campus is impossible. If 
unit heads find circumstances in their areas that they beheve warrant exception from particular 
provisions in this Smoking Policy and Guidelines, they may address requests for specific local 
exceptions to the President or his her designee. 


This policy reUes on the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of smokers and 
non-smokers for its success. It is the responsibility of all members of the campus community to observe 
this Smoking PoHcy and Guidelines and to direct those who choose to smoke to designated Smoking 
Permitted areas. Complaints or concerns regarding this policy or disputes regarding its 
implementation should be referred to the immediate supervisor for resolution. If a resolution cannot be 
reached, the matter will be referred by the supervisor to the appropriate Department Head or Vice 
President for mediation. 


This Smoking Policy does not supersede more restrictive policies which may be in force in 
compliance with federal, state, or local laws and ordinances, but shall be in addition thereto: 


The provisions and Guidelines attaching to this Smoking Policy shall be subject to future review and 
revision to ensure that its objective is obtained. Especial attention shall be given to determining if 
voluntary compliance without disciplinary sanctions has proven satisfactory. 


This Smoking PoUcy shall be effective Spring Semester, 1986.
