to Maryland after 
there was no true 
symbol to 

represent the 
university. They 
decided to create 
a bronze memo-

cause of its 
habitat, which is 
unique to 
western and 
eastern shores. 
Testudo has be-

Located just 40 mi. south of Baltimore and 15 mi. out- 
side of Washington D.C., where there are hundreds of 
museams, restaurants and shops, it is easy to see why 
students at the University of Maryland have such busy 
schedules. Students don't even have to go that far tr 
find entertainment: restaurants, bars, clubs and shop 
ping are just seconds away from campus on Route 1 
not to mention the movie theater, bowling alley am 
numerous places to eat on campus. 






The University Theatre has had a great year! 
The first show of the 1998-99 school year was 
"Emma," a play by Michael Fry based on the novel 
by Jane Austen. It showed in Pugliese Theatre on 
February 11-22, 1998-99. It is a comic clash be- 
tween romance and independence by one of the 
world's most charming and successfial authors. The 
play was directed by Nick Olcott who commented, 
"My overall image of this play is a dance. People in 
the play form pairs, move together, separate and move 
on". He describes the play as a faithful adaptation 
of the Jane Austen novel, which focuses on the eco- 
nomic and social place of marriage. David Cannon 
of "The Montgomery County Sentinel" wrote, 
"['Emma' is] the first unabashed success of 1998, 
and a perfect Valentine's Day present.

piece of contemporary theatre and features some of 
the best acting challenges imaginable. "Its spirit of 
warmth and humanity speaks to all audiences", said 
Tom Prewitt, director of the performance. The pro- 
duction is about five sisters and their poignant 
struggle to survive and find happiness despite eco- 
nomic and social obstacles. The play is set in

translated by Bernard Fretchman. Performances were 
in the Pugliese Theatre April 29-MaylO. "The play 
deals with culture's obsession with spying, voyeur- 
ism and celebrit>'," mentioned the director, Michael 
Oliver. The play is a Theatre of the Absurd play and 
the playwright alters perceptible reality to create a 
new and often startling world. Oliver commented, 
"You can invent the situation. With playwrights like 
Jean Genet, you're free to create your own logic. We 
don't have enough surprises in the theatre- Theatre 
of the Absurd creates surprises." The set design was 
done by Bruce Lindsay, a recent Maryland graduate.

The World Goes Round 


The spring 99 theatre season opened with the 
musical revue, "The World Goes 'Round" October 
1 5-24 in Tawes Theatre. The play spotlights the best 
songs of John Kander and Fred Ebb and was con- 
ceived by Scott Ellis, Susan Stroman, and David 
Thompson. Jane Pesci-Townsend, director, com- 
mented, "Kander and Ebb's most recognizable songs 
are showtunes at their most glitzy American best. 
Yet the characters behind the songs aren't all glitzy- 
Kander and Ebb's songs are about simple people 
having deep emotions just like everyone else." The 
scene designer for the University production was 
Raye Leith and the costume design was done by John 
Davies, a master of Fine Arts student.

The bittersweet drama, "The Seagull" was 
presented November 1 1-22 in Pugliese Theatre. The 
production is a Russian drama of ambition, talent, 
and unrequited love, written by Anton Chekhov and 
translated by Kristin Johnsen-Neshati. The director, 
Zeljko Djukic, noted, "It's extremely cruel, hopeless 
but funny, emotional. [The characters] often say one 
thing, think another, and do something third- that of 
course, brings humor. For the most part the charac- 
ters are arrogant, mean, cruel, stupid, selfish. Seem- 
ingly, there's nothing special about them- but what's 
fascinating is the fact that each character had a soul 
that bears a secret of their own life." According to 
Leonard Hughes of The Washington Post, "The 
Seagull" found every chance to bring the comedy 
out of Chekov's script" and was "in many 
ways... spectacular."

the mineola twins 

"The Mineola Twins" is a 
comedy about the divergent so- 
cial and political lives of twin sis- 
ters from Long Island. Written by 
Pulitzer Prize winning playwright 
Paula Vogel, "The Mineola Twins" 
follows the escapades of "good" 
twin Myrna and "evil" twin Myra 
from their youth in the '50s 
through the Bush administration.

This play is an interesting 
mix of humor and pathos," said 
Catherine Schuler, director of the 
production. "The irony of twins 
who are from the same womb yet 
opposite sides of the political 
)ectrum make the play some- 
thing of a political farce. Picture 
someone with the politics of a 
Jesse Helms or an Arianna 
Huffington thrown together with 
Gloria Steinem for life. 

"Paula Vogel is witty play- 
wright who writes some incred- 
ibly witty dialogue, yet the play is 
no piece of fluff. It offers a reflec- 
tion of the politics of hatred, the 
depiction of the culture wars, and 
how the two sisters respond to it."

Board of Regents Announce Appointment of 
Mote as President of University 

University System of 
Maryland (USM) Board of Re- 
gents Chairman Lance W. 
Billingsley announced June 2nd, 
the appointment of Dr. Clayton 
Daniel "Dan" Mote, Jr. as the 27th 
president of the University of 
Maryland starting in September. 

Mote comes to Maryland 
from the University of California, 
Berkeley, where he was Vice 
Chancellor of University Rela- 
tions, President of the UC Berke- 
ley Foundation, and held an en- 
dowed chair in Mechanical Sys- 
tems. As the new president of Uni- 
versity of Maryland, Mote re- 
places Dr. William E. "Brit" 
Kirwan, who assumedf the presi- 
dency of Ohio State University on 
July 1. 

"The Regents could not be 
more pleased with this appoint- 
ment," said Bilhngsley. "Dr. Mote 
brings to the University of Mary- 
land the national stature, record of 
accomplishment, and leadership 
abilities to build on Brit Kirwan's 
legacy and to propel this institu- 
tion into the top tier of American 
research universities. A man of 
impeccable credentials, he is 
widely recognized for his ability 
to form strategic alUances between 
the academy and the community. 

I can think of no one better to take 
over the helm of our flagship uni- 

Mote, 6 1 , was named to the 
Vice Chancellor's position and 
foundation presidency at UC Ber- 
keley in 1 99 1 . In those capacities, 
he has been responsible for work- 
ing with the university's external 
constituencies through a variety of 
programs, including fund raising, 
government relations, publica- 
tions, and public information. In 
1992 he launched a comprehen- 
sive, campus-wide cam paign to 
raise $1.1 billion in private sup- 
port by the year 2000. 

From 1987 to 1991, Mote 
served as chair of Berkeley's De- 
partment of Mechanical Engineer- 
ing, leading the department to its 
number one ranking in the Na- 
tional Research Council review of 
graduate program effectiveness. 
He came to Berkeley in 1967 af- 
ter three years on the faculty of 
Carnegie Institute of Technology. 
He has held research positions at 
the University of Birmingham, the 
Norwegian Institute for Wood Sci- 
ence and Technology, the Techni- 
cal University of Darmstadt, and 
the Tokyo Institute of Technology. 

His technical expertise is in 

the areas of dynamic systems, in- 
strumentation, vibration, and bio- 
mechanics. He is internationally 
recognized for his research on gy- 
roscopic systems. His work on the 
biomechanics of skiing injury has 
yielded 300 publications as well 
as patents in the U.S., Norway, 
Finland, and Sweden. 

Among his numerous hon- 
ors. Mote has received research 
fellowships from the National Sci- 
ence Foundation and from the 
Royal Norwegian Council for Sci- 
entific and Industrial Research. In 
197 1 the University of Cahfomia, 
Berkeley gave him its Distin- 
guished Teacher Award. In 1988 
he was elected to the National 
Academy of Engineering in the 
U.S. and was awarded the 
Humboldt Prize by the Federal 
Republic of Germany. In 1997 
Mote was chosen Honorary Mem- 
ber of the American Society of 
Mechanical Engineers, the high- 
est award bestowed by this soci- 
ety, for exemplary accomplish- 
ments in the course of his career. 

Mote holds B.S. and M.S. 
desrees in mechanical ensineer- 
ing and a Ph.D. in engineering me- 
chanics, all from the University of 
California, Berkeley.

Alcohol-Free Fun 

Eighty-eight percent of all college 
students, including those under the legal 
drinking age, have used alcohol and 44 per- 
cent had engaged in binge drinking during 
the two weeks prior to the 1997 survey by 
The Bacchus and Gamma Peer Education 
Network. The survey also found that binge 
drinkers were 16 times more likely than non- 
binge drinkers to miss class, damage prop- 
erty and get injured. 

But here at the the University of 
Maryland, planning fun alcohol-free activi- 
ties on weekends is a priority. Every year a 
"Spring Party Challenge" encourages stu- 
dent groups to throw alcohol-free parties. 
Organizers of the best party get $300 and 
two runners-up each get $100. Some of the 

best have had themes centered around car- 
nivals, elementary school recess, tropical 
islands and jazz. 

As coordinator of "Weekends at 
Maryland," Amy Duhaime plans alcohol-free 
holiday theme parties, bus trips to nearby 
museums and sporting events, hiking trips 
and other interesting activities. She also 
serves as a clearinghouse for all weekend 
campus activities, providing a weekly list of 
weekend events. Duhaime says the bus trips 
have gotten rave reviews. 

Other off-campus possibilities for 
alcohol-free fun are included in a booklet 
called Where the Good Times Are. The pub- 
lication is produced by the Washington Area 

Drug Prevention Consortium of Higher Educa- 
tion, consisting of 13 institutions of higher edu- 
cation in the Washington, D.C. area, including 
the University of Maryland, American Univer- 
sity, The Catholic University of America, George 
Mason University, Georgetown University and 
others. The publication lists many alcohol-free 
activities, establishments and events that the 
area has to offer college students, such as gour- 
met dessert and coffee houses; billiards, skat- 
ing, golfing and bowling centers; theaters; parks; 
and general tourist attractions. 

A survey done by the University of 
Maryland shows that about 30 percent of stu- 
dents would prefer to socialize without alcohol. 
Says Grad-Lynch, "We do everything we can to 
support this 30 percent" .

Halloween has been and will al- 
ways be a day for tapping into that split 
personality of yours. Whether it involves 
dressing up as a space alien, a she-devil, 
or one of the South Park kids you put ef- 
fort into and become that personality. 
Once the outfit is complete, it is the actual 
destination that makes or brakes the 
evening. For little children going door to 
door begging for tooth-rotting candy will 
do, but for college students it involves 
music, alcohol, and members of the oppo- 
site sex. 

If you are apart of the large Greek 
system here on campus then a fraternity 
party or two will do the "trick." Delta Tau 
Delta and Sigma Chi threw two large Hal- 
loween parties. One had a band with tunes 

from the eighties and today while the other 
one had it"s house lit up with black lights 
accenting it's techno/ alien theme. Many 
parties were also running wild at the Knox 
Towers. Knox Boxes, and Guilford Rd. 
Anywhere you went involved some kind 
of encounter with an individual scarier than 
the guy who sat next to you in Bio 105 did. 

If staying on campus is not scary 
enough for you. a trip into DC or Balti- 
more will surely help to fulfil your need 
for festive, scary fun. Every Halloween 
most of "M" street in Georgetown is 
blocked off and seas of drunken people 
dressed in crazy costumes fill the bars 
drinking, singing, and frightening one 
another. You can see waves of people 
stumble from one bar to another singing 

songs like Michael Jackson's "Thriller" 
and "The Monster Mash" throughout the 
night. Fells Point in Baltimore is also a 
great place to go, for its bars are crammed 
with loud and oddly dressed people as 
well. They are decorated accordingly and 
have loud music to fill the packed streets 
and allies. 

Full moon or not, Halloween here 
at Maryland is a perfect opportunity for 
students to let down their hair or put on a 
wig and dress up like when they were chil- 
dren again. The difference between Hal- 
loween now and when we were children 
is instead of going door to door to see 
who can get the most candy, now we jump 
from bar to bar and party to party, to see 
who can have the most fun.

Good Morning America Visits UMD 

At 7:00 am on Friday, Octo- 
ber 23rd, in 43 degree weather, about 
500 students, faculty and staff were 
at the east end of McKeldin Mall wait- 
ing for the "Good Morning America" 
taping to start. 

The program opened witha 
shot of Memorial Chapel and focused 
on prosepective students and what 
goes into choosing the right college. 
ABC producers sought a major pub- 
lic university that had diverse student 

programs, a diverse student body and 
opportunities for eye-cactching tele- 
vision footage. Segment correspon- 
dent Bob Woodruff said Good Morn-

across the country. Undergraduate

Traveling Across Campus 

It's 8 am and you are waking 
up from a restful night's sleep of 3 
hours. Unfortunately, since the ever- 
popular Shuttle UM fails to run dur- 
ing the day, you must find alternate 
transportation to and from classes. 
Walking would seem to be the logical 
choice, but some people think there 
are better ways. Skateboarding, 
roUerblading, driving, bicycling, and 
even unicycling are some of the re- 
sponses we have encountered. 

As most have experienced. 

driving to class can take more time 
than it saves. Here at Maryland, 
pedestrians rule the campus, and 
waiting at the many stop signs and 
crosswalks on campus drive can 
take an eternity. Once you arrive 
at your parking lot or garage of 
choice, the hunt for a good spot 
is on. Anything goes to avoid the 
dreaded lot 4-even risking an all 
too frequent parking ticket. Those 
campus parking tickets seem 
harmless but you had better keep 
track of them, you could rack up 

a steep bill. 

Bicyclists zoom through 
campus seemingly ready to crash 
into unsuspecting walkers. Skate- 
boarding and roUerblading are two 
of the more challenging modes of 
transportation, especially with pe- 
destrians crowding the walkways. 
Walking is the most favored method 
of travel around campus. It may be 
a huge school, but students are al- 
ways sure to recognize a few friends 
walking around during the day.

Terps Soar at Sports 

University of Maryland today 
achieved one of the major department goals 
of the Deborah A. Yow era by earning inclu- 
sion in the top 20 of the Sears Directors' Cup, 
the national Division I all-sports ranking. 

In final standings released by the 
National Association of Collegiate Directors 
of Athletics, the Terrapins' athletic program 
was ranked tied for 19th out of 306 Division 
I schools. It is the highest finish for the Terps 
since the rankings began five years ago, and 
Maryland's 38-position jump from the No. 
57 spot in the final 1994-95 rankings is the 
greatest in that time period by a school not 
previously ranked in the top 25. The Terps' 
previous best was 48th, in 1993-94. 

"This is exciting news for every- 
one associated with the University of 
Maryland's athletic program — student-ath- 
letes, coaches, staff, alumni and boosters," 
said Yow, who is beginning her fifth year as 

director of athletics. "Reaching the top 25 
has been a long-standing goal for all of 
us, and today we can take pride in the fact 
that despite budgetary obstacles, we main- 
tained our focus and achieved as a depart- 
ment what we set out to do. I can also say 
that while we are extremely proud of today's 
ranking, not one person in our athletic fam- 
ily is satisfied with where we are or inter- 
ested in resting on our laurels. Our aim is 
to keep progressing to the point we be- 
come a fixture in the top 10. We'll settle for 
nothing less." 

Since the end of Yow's first full 
year as athletic director, when the Terps 
finished 57th in the Sears Directors' Cup, 
Maryland has made steady progress in the 
rankings. The Terps jumped 21 spots (to 
36th) in Yow's second year, then climbed 
four more spots (to No. 32) after her third 
year. Today's ranking reflects a 13-spot 
jump from a year ago and a 38-position 

climb since her first year at Maryland. 

All told, Maryland scored points 
in 1 1 of its 24 sports: women's lacrosse (100), 
men's lacrosse (80), men's basketball (30), 
field hockey (20), men's soccer (20), volley- 
ball (20), gymnastics (20), women's soccer 
(10), wrestling (10), men's swinmiing (10), 
women's tennis (10). 

"This ranking shows we are headed 
in the right direction in putting together a 
consistently successful and broad-based 
program," says Yow. "Our aim is to provide 
all of our programs the tools necessary to 
compete at the highest level. Only then will 
we fully reahze the University of Maryland's 
true potential." 

Said field hockey coach Missy 
Meharg: "This is serious evidence of a per- 
formance plan. Debbie Yow's perspective on 
this has challenged us all to perform."

Friends, Fun, and Memories 

Friends are what make our years in col- 
lege the best years of our lives. From late 
nights sitting around talking or going out 
to parties they have shared so much with 
us. They are the ones who already heard 
the stories you tell, but laugh at them any- 
way. Sometimes, it seems aO of your per- 
sonalities have combined into one over 

the past years. You cry together, 
laugh together, and can always pre- 
dict the other's next move. Now the 
time has come for the fun years of col- 
lege to end, and everyone to move on 
with their lives. You want to panic. 
You don't want to lose these invalu- 
able people who have filled your life. 

Then, you realize you don't have to. 
Memories of these years are numberous 
and invaluable. Things you see or hear 
every day will remind you of your 
firiends. That's how they will brighten 
your day, even though they can't be 
there. Never forget the memories of 
your friends.

The Route 

Standing on the comer of Knox 
Road and Baltimore Avenue, I breathe in 
the faint scent of onions and peppers fry- 
ing on a grill, of bubbling mozzarella cheese 
melting in the oven at Ratsie's. I hear some 
faint C.C.R. playing around the comer and 
a deep, pounding bass on the street. Stu- 
dents of all ages pass by me; some are 
headed home to a tiny little shack on 
Dickinson and others are off to their eight- 
hour shift at the Fe. Behind me, two fresh- 
man girls gawk and giggle at the fratemity 
guys who are on their way to happy hour at 
R.J. Bentley's. And then, smoky, pungent 
fumes encircle me and the crunching grind 
of shifting gears overpowers the pounding 
bass and I am left standing in a pool of real- 
ity as the delivery truck speeds away. I am 

standing on the comer of the Route. Route 
1, that is. 

Route 1 offers all any college stu- 
dent craves everything body, mind, and 
spirit altering. Vendors on the Route pro- 
vide access to the freshmen 15 via eateries 
like Cluck-U and Danny's. The Bagel Place 
is hoppin' around lunchtime, the Smoothie 
King is the healthy way to go, (and they 
have good service!) And what would any 
cool college town be without a ReRun and 
an outlet like Adidas? Apparently, not Col- 
lege Park. From poetry readings to watch- 
ing a Terp basketball game on the big 
screen, the activities on Route 1 enrich the 
mind and the spirit. So besides eating, shop- 
ping, and relaxing, what else is there to do? 

Well, you could get your bike fixed, your 
film processed in one hour, or go out for a 
night on the town. Route I's nightly social 
gatherings provide the perfect experience for 
one's 21" birthday bar tour. Terrapin Sta- 
tion, R.J. Bentley's, Comerstone, Santa Fe, 
and the Loft, render music, fun drinks, and 
good times for all of those of age. 

All that packed into a few blocks in 
a small college town on the edge of Mary- 
land. These few blocks that are the perfect 
way to start the weekend on Thursday night 
and are only a few steps away from campus. 
This huge mix-mash of some thirty thousand 
students share at least two things in com- 
mon: the University of Maryland at College 
Park and the Route. Route 1, that is.

Breaking Free 

College is supposed to be fun, 
right? We are here to study a chosen field 
and obtain a degree, but besides that there 
are memories to be made, hearts to be bro- 
ken, and a nightlife to be lived. Some of us 
get sick of doing all that in the same town 
and on the same campus so.... let's break 

One of the cheaper and easier op- 
tions for college students is a road trip. The 
open road creates open possibilities for end- 

less good times and fun. Sports fans? Try 
driving to the next away game or getting tick- 
ets to see one of the nearby professional 
teams. Club frequenter? Let the metro whisk 
you away to D.C. 's wide selection of swing, 
jazz, and rave clubs. Like to brave the trails? 
Visit Great Falls in Maryland or Virginia for 
beautiful scenery and some fun hiking. 
Searching for a wild party? Look up some 
friends at neighboring schools like Ameri- 
can, George Mason, Loyola, or Towson. 
Want to get away from the four walls of the 

classroom? D.C.'s political scene and 
Baltimore's business industry offer many 
internships for the asking. Ski bunny? Hit 
the slopes at Whitetail, Wisp, or Ski Liberty. 
Close-by cities, neighboring schools, and the 
surrounding outdoors let students get off 
campus and out of College Park for new and 
different experiences. Breaking free brings 
a touch of the university life to the outside 
world and gives students to meet new people, 
find better times, and live an even better

Skipping School 

LaPlata Beach? What college 
campus has a beach on it? Only at the 
University of Maryland, College Park 
where year-round the volleyball court is 
set up for students to play anytime they 
please. Oh, don't forget our pools, both 
inside and out, where often you will find 
kayak or two paddling down the lane. 
With these options who needs to go to 
class. Classes? Oh yeah, the reason our 
parents originally sent us here. Mary- 
land has made every effort to keep us 
around campus (and out of classes) as 
long as possible with as many activities 
as they could find. Do you remember 
your first tour of campus? McKeldin was 
the largest mall, measuring to beat out 
the competition right down to the last 
inch. Just the more room for the frisbees 

to fly, dogs to run, and friends to sit and chat? 
Whatever it takes to keep out of the classroom. 

For those who would rather go out 
than sleep in Cole Field House for tickets, you 
could catch the Maryland Basketball Games at 
the Hoff. Although those sixteen hours of 
sleeping upright just to see a game were fun, 
someone had the idea to make it easier for the 
students. Movies and documentaries would 
play at other times to entertain students, while 
the theatres in town would entice us with re- 
duced admissions to their shows. For those 
who wanted to cuddle up with a loved one, or 
just too lazy to sit in the theatre. Route 1 offered 
a multitude of video rental stores where you 
could find your own movie. 

Among the video stores. Route 1 was 

the quickest stop to find your own personal 
Cheers. Everybody knew you name because 
you spend all of your Thursday nights there, 
your Friday aftemoons, and Saturday nights. 
The battle of the drink specials would win 
your attention until you found the spot where 
you and all of your friends met ritually. Re- 
member the Cellar? Oh, you mean the sta- 
tion, but we're too old for there now. Do you 
remember the first time you stepped off Route 
1 and onto Knox road to declare your new 
found Cheers? Don't forget all the fun you 
had sitting out front making fun of the fresh- 
men who walked past fraternity row, dying to 
find a party. 

With all the things to do while at 
Maryland it's amazing that we actually make 
it to our classes at all.

Saying Goodbye 

"I just don't like the way it feels, I 
mean, sure I know I have to. but I don't like 
to," said George Frick as we \\ alked across 
the mall. "It's one of those things that people 
get all worked up about, and I don't want 
to. I pretend it'll never happen to me. and 
when it does. I'll just deal with it then." It's 
one thing we will all ha\ e to do. w hether 
it's someone we just met. or someone we've 
known for years. Commencement is ap- 
proaching and we all are going to have to 
say goodbye. (Wliat else do you think this 
was about?) UTien we left the dorms, we 

struggled to keep in touch with our old floor 
When we mov ed off to Knox or out to the 
Towers, we made the effort to call or meet 
people on campus and in between classes. 
Now that graduation is here, we are faced 
with the hardest task, keeping touch. Col- 
lege here has made such an impact on our 
social li\ es that the memories we made w ill 
be the toughest ones to recapture in any other 
place, but as educated adults, we strive to 
beat the circumstances. 

Take vour last walk around the 

campus, and rub Testudo's nose just one last 
time. Eat at the dining halls, complaining 
how horrible it is the w hole time. Go through 
the Zoo Psych building and get lost all over 
again... that is if you e\er figured it out in 
the first place. Lasih; walk the Union and 
its endless corridors and remember how it is 
now. Soon it'll all be changed and the only 
thing you'll ha\ e to remember it how it was 
is your memories and the mark it left in your

7,900 University of Maryland students live in 36 resi- 
dence halls. Of these students, 71% live in traditional 
dornis, 15% live in fully equipped apartments, and 
14% live in suites. A primary goal for the residence 
hall staff is to promote academic excellence by indi- 
vidual resident students. They can help students suc- 
ceed by providing supportive academe services, fa- 
cilities and programs. 


Food for Thought 

Picture this. . .. You are sitting up- 
stairs at home in your bedroom. Five thirty 
rolls around and your mom yells up that 
dinner is ready. You venture down the 
stairs, through'the hall, pass the living 
room, and wander into the kitchen filled 
with the heavenly scent of lasagna, for the 
second time in one week. "Can't we eat 
something different, somewhere different 
tonight?" you ask. "Of course not," your 
mother responds. "We don't have the 
money to eat out whenever you feel like it. 
And besides, you liked this lasagna last 
Thursday." Someone get me out of here! 

Now, picture this.... You are sit- 
ting on the third floor of Elkton hall in your 
dorm room. Six o'clock rolls around and 

your roommate yells from next door that 
you'd better get to the dining hall soon 
since it closes at seven. You venture into 
the hall, take the elevator down, walk 
through the courtyard and into the dining 
hall. Aromas of pizza, deli sandwiches, and 
spaghetti lay heavily on the air. Pizza, deli 
sandwiches, and spaghetti for the third 
time in two weeks. You look at your room- 
mates and ask if they want to order Papa 
John's instead. "Are you crazy?!" they 
answer, "We're saving our last ten bucks 
so we can go out tonight!" Sound famil- 

You see, eating as a college stu- 
dent isn't always all that different from eat- 
ing at home. Let's use some logic: when 

do you go home? Thanksgiving? Holi- 
days? Spring break? Of course we will be 
babied with our favorite foods for the few 
days we are home. And, after we are 
gone.... yikes! I feel bad for the rest of the 
family. Besides, it doesn't have to be 
Denton dining hall food that you eat. 
There's dinner to be had at Ellicott, South 
Campus, and the Union. For those who 
live off campus or in South Hill apartments, 
there are endless possibilities for the mi- 
crowave and coupon clipping. For the 
very few who wander into the world of sit- 
down dining, there is Adele's in the Union 
and a few of the local eateries are restau- 
rants by day and bars by night. Whether 
eating on campus or off, keep in mind that 
the options are greater than home.

An "Ivy League Experience" at Bargain Prices 

The University of Maryland's Hon- 
ors Program got another feather in its cap 
as U.S. News and World Report's 12th an- 
nual guide to "America's Best Colleges" 
focused its spotlight on places where out- 
standing students can get "a top-quality edu- 
cation at a bargain price." "The best honors 
programs offer an Ivy League experience at 
less than half the price," the magazine pro- 
claimed in the lead to the story about hon- 
ors programs at Maryland, the University 
of Georgia and the University of Texas at 
Austin. Among the hundreds of honors pro- 
grams offered by universities across the 
United States, "the best are found at large 
state-supported universities," the magazine 
said. "We have worked tirelessly over the 
past years to construct an academic program 
in Honors that is both rigorous and imagi- 
native," said Sandy Mack, director of Uni- 

versity Honors at Maryland. "The U.S. News 
article confirms what our students are tell- 
ing us: we are succeeding." 

Students are sending that message 
in several ways, including comments from 
several in the U.S. News article, which men- 
tions Nurit Schmerler, who chose Maryland 
over Columbia; .lennifer Wolbransky, who 
turned down the University of Pennsylvania 
in favor of College Park; and Luke Currano, 
who picked Maryland in spite of an offer 
from the Massachusetts Institute of Technol- 

Currano, a mechanical engineer 
participating in the Honors Program's inno- 
vative Gemstone program with students from 
a variety of disciplines, said he and his Gem- 
stone teammates plan to propose "something 

new that no one else has thought of when 
they report on their four-year mass-transit 

"The quality of Honors students has 
soared over the past few years," Mack notes. 
The middle half of this year's freshman Hon- 
ors students had SAT scores ranging from 
1360 to 1460, on par with mid-range stu- 
dents at Penn, Columbia, Brown and 
Baltimore's Johns Hopkins University. 
"These are the greatest young people to work 
with," Mack said. 

As for the bargain part of the equa- 
tion, resident tuition at Maryland this year 
is $4,699, and non-resident tuition is 
$ II ,22 1 , compared with $30,000 or more at 
the nation's most selective private institu-

A Home Away From Home 

There are ways to ease the tran- 
sition from home to college life and mak- 
ing a dorm room more like home is one of 
them. One of the first things students do 
when the come to Maryland, is get to- 
gether with their roomates to design and 
decorate their dorm room. The first per- 
son to arrive in the room assigned to them 
in the dorms sees four pale, empty, 
cinderblock walls. It doesn't look too in- 
viting, but with a little time and creativity 
you can make your own little comfortable 

Julie Davis decorated her dresser 
with photos of her family and golden re- 
triever. She also brought a stuffed animal 
resembling her dog, a gift from her grand- 
mother. "The photos are on my dresser, 

in a place where I can see them everyday. 
I have a great relationship with my family, 
and the pictures help me feel closer to them 
and less homesick," said Davis, who like 
many new students also had colleges of 
high school friends decorating the walls. 

Peter Kang, a journalism major, 
helped start a town paper. He was sad to 
leave his publication, but was excited when 
his parents started sending him copies of 
the paper. Says Kang, "I was thrilled to be 
able to watch my hometown publication 
grow and keep up with what was going on 
at home". Like most students, Kang had a 
very busy schedule and had a hard time 
keeping in touch with his parents and tell- 
ing them what was going on around cam- 
pus. Kang followed his parents' idea and 

got them a subscription to the Diamond- 
back. They could learn what was going on 
in Maryland without even speaking to Pe- 

Their are many thing you can do 
to make your dorm room more 'homely'. 
You could hang tapestries, posters, cur- 
tains, purchase cooridinating bed linens, 
or carpets. But just remember, dorm rooms 
are small. Be sure to bring only what is 
necessary to avoid an overcroweded and 
cramped room. Many students also rent 
refridgerators to make their rooms seem 
more like home. With a little creativity, 
your once plain and empty dorm room can 
turn into a comfortable place to study, re- 
lax, and a great place to unwind with your 
new friends.

Party? Maybe Not. 

Throughout your high school years, 
you paint an elaborate image of what you 
believe college to be. The image resembles 
something like a huge party. Loud music 
constantly blaring in the background of ev- 
erywhere you go. A million kegs scattered 
across campus. 

It is not until you come to UMD 
that your exciting little image is shattered. 
You learn there is a rule banning kegs on 
campus. Within the dormitories, there are 
quiet hours forcing you to turn you music 
down after certain hours. With no where else 
to turn you look to the bars, to remember 
that you have 16 months until you can le- 
gally patronize one of those establishments. 
Therefore, your long and grueling search for 
the perfect fake id begins. 

After hunting for weeks, possibly 

months you get you hands on some excuse 
of an id. You are still not put to ease. Every 
trip to the bar initials much memorization. 
As you quickly try to remember all of the 
information on your id, your stomach fills 
with butterflies. A denial could be sheer 
embarrassment. Just as you proudly recite 
your false information to the bouncer, a 
friend walks by calling you by your "real" 
name. The buncer, whoyou just gave a dif- 
ferent name to, smirks and hands you back 
your ID. 

As quickly as you can you walk 
away- hoping that no one you know saw 
your tragic denial. You begin to wonder: 
what is so great about those hot, cramped 
places anyway? You can barely move around 
enough to mingle, and rarely leave without 
a cigarette bum somewhere on your body. 

It is a given that at some point within the 
night beer will be spilt on you. most likely 
on your brand new pants. And we cannot 
forget the unannounced visits from the liquor 
board that scare everyone half to death. 

In the end, we discover that college 
is just not what we had thought it was cracked 
up to be. We never realized the fiin we would 
have talking until all hours of the morning 
and laughing when friends who had, at least 
for that night, managed to convince some- 
one that they were, if fact 2 1 . The reality of 
college is a lot different than how you first 
pictured it. But you realize that college 
doesn't have to be like Animal House for 
you to have a good time and make great

This Is Definitely Not High School 

Professors probably won't tell you 
which part of the lecture is most important 
or what's going to be on the test, and there 
generally will be less interaction with the 
professor during class. You will be ex- 
pected to learn more, and learn more diffi- 
cult things. You're definitely going to need 
to study harder and smarter. And since you 
or your parents are paying for this, you re- 
ally better pay attention and not waste that 
money. No, you're definitely not in high 
school anymore, but with a few time man- 
agement and study tips, you'll do fine. 

Firts, organize your time on paper, 
using a weekly schedule, to-do lists and 
similar aids. Know your "prime time" — the 
time you are most productive - and sched- 
ule the most difficult work for then. Spend 
enough time studying. For math, science, 
computer science and language classes, 
expect to spend 7 to 10 hours per week per 
course studying, for history, English, so- 
cial science classes and others, expect to 
spend 3 to 6 hours per week per course 
studying. Take lecture notes on 8 1/2 x 1 1 
paper, and within 24 hours of the lecture 

prepare your notes for review by writing 
cues in the left-hand margin, personal notes 
in the right-hand margin, and by giving em- 
phasis to important points with underlin- 
ing, brackets, arrows or asterisks. At the 
end of each section of notes, write a sum- 
mary of key points. Notes should be re- 
viewed within 24 hours after taking them, 
before the next class, at the end of the week, 
and several times prior to the exam. When 
reviewing textbooks, use the SQ3R method 
(survey the material, ask yourself ques- 
tions based on the survey, read the mate- 
rial to answer your questions, recite impor- 
tant points, and review). As you are re- 
viewing, ask yourself questions about the 
material. Produce essay and other types of 
questions that could appear on a test. Cre- 
ate study aids for comprehensive review. 
These aids can take the form of summaries, 
charts, maps, outlines or index card 
prompts. Form study groups to clarify ma- 
terial and review for exams. Connect with 
your professors and teaching assistants to 
ask questions about lecture content, future 
and past exams, etc. Review past exams — 
those you've taken as well as those taken 

by others in previous years. Analyze ques- 
tions you missed and plan new study strat- 
egies for the next exam. Take advantage of 
campus resources such as learning/study 
skills centers, writing centers, math tutor- 
ing, counseling centers, career centers, etc. 
Use the summer prior to college to improve 
academic skills by taking courses in read- 
ing comprehension, math, writing, etc. 

In high school sometimes you 
could just 'get by' with some help from your 
friends. You missed a class here and then, 
but chances are your parents wouldn't let 
you stay home if you had anything less 
than pnemonia. While at college, you are 
(for the most part) independent, and are 
trusted to make wise deicisons. It's a lot of 
fun to go out to the bars on Tuesday 
nights, or to stay up all night with your 
friends laughing and watching movies. But 
the night before a 9:00 am exam is probably 
not the best time for that. So use just some 
of these helpful study tips to improve your 
grades and impress your parents. Just re- 
member the most important study tip: don't 
forget to show up at class.

The Fabled "Freshman 15" 

According to the National College 
Youth Risk Behavior Survey, twenty per- 
cent of college students are overweight and 
40 percent are attempting to lose weight. 
What are these statistics saying about 
weight trends on campus? 

According to Lori Wiersema, a nu- 
tritionist at the University of Maryland's 
Health Center, the amount of weight the av- 
erage college freshman will gain has risen 
from 5 to 10 pounds to 10 to 15 pounds. She 
says that students are gaining excess weight 
because they use food late at night for rec- 
reational or social purposes. "Students will 
often eat late at night while visiting with 
friends to avoid studying, not because they 

are hungry," Wiersema said. 

Wiersema's advice for avoiding the 
dreaded "freshman 15" is simple: Keep up 
with the physical activity that you did in 
high school, or at least replace it with some 
other type of physical activity, walk to class 
instead of getting a ride or taking the shuttle 
(do you really need a ride to Jimenez from 
the dorms?), skip desserts and excess 
breads at meal times. Try to cut down on 
high calorie drinks such as soda and juice 
(avoid the 32-ounce cups and learn to drink 
smaller beverage portions), avoid fried 
foods, take advantage of the salad bar where 
there are many low-fat food selections such 
as fresh vegetables, fruit and protein 

sources, eat frequently but in small 
amounts, don't skip breakfeast, it really is 
the most important meal of the day (eating 
low fat protien and starches helps increase 
the body's metabolic rate and helps control 
weight gain ), and lower your intake of alco- 
hol and be aware of the late night 
"munchies" that usually occur after a night 
of drinking. 

It is possible to graduate from col- 
lege with the same figure (or something 
close to it), that you had when you first 
came here. All it takes is a little effort and 
some awareness. Just plan a routine where 
you eat healthy and exercise regularly (like 
every week after happy hour).

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources congratulates their graduates who 
will be working on a myriad of important issues. They will be touching issues of whether we 
are providing a safe and plentiful food supply, producing profitable plant and animal products, 
and respecting the environment. The college's newest graduates will also work on improving 
economic competitiveness in world markets, developing new systems in engineering for natural 
resources and biology, and improving the health and nutrition of humans and animals. Con- 
sequently, our Maryland graduates will take strides at making the world a better place to live. 

Under the leadership and commitment of Dean Thomas Fretz, the college has an open- 
minded vision of entering the twenty first century. After joining forces with the Maryland 
Cooperative Extension and the Agricultural Experiment Stations, the college of Agriculture 
has become one united forced that is committed and dedicated to serving students in the best 
possible way. 

Many new programs have been developed to improve the quality of education. Thus, 
quality faculty, programs, and facilities have all been improved within the college. Programs 
such as Environmental Science and Policy have been added and the college leads the univer- 
sity in submission of patents and the generation of royalties. Other programs of study include.

When the School of Architecture opened its doors in 1967, its founders had the fore- 
sight to plan for the future. Along with the establishment of the school, the construction of its 
own facilities, resources were set aside for the procurement for an architectural library that 
today ranks among the top in the nation. Coupled with the National Trust for Historic Preser- 
vation Library, virtually anything on the topic of architecture is easily accessible. Also in the 
School is the Elizabeth Alley Visual Resource Collection which is one of the best teaching 
collections of slides and visual materials available nationally. 

The School of Architecture offers a four year imdergraduate program which mini- 
mizes the time required to complete the curriculum and leads to a Bachelor of Science de- 
gree. The graduate program leads to a professional degree of Master in Architecture. The 
program is uniquely small with some twenty faculty and two hundred students in the large 
university and one of the nation's largest and metropolitan centers and historic regions. The 
people who study in this school come from vastly different backgrounds at different stages 
of life maturity. This enhances the program, as the study of architecture includes the sharing 
of past experiences and developing knowledge as it is brought to bear on studio design 

Architecture students receive rigorous and comprehensive instruction from a faculty 
whose members are actively involved in professional practice or research, many of whom 
have distinguished themselves across the professional spectrum and represent different 
approaches to architectural design. Individual areas of expertise include architectural de- 
sign and theory, history, architectural archaeology, technology, urban design and planning, 
and historic preservation. The faculty provides the students with the requisite exposure to 
contemporary realities of architectural design through visiting critics, lecturers, and the Kea 
Distinguished Professor. The facilities, resources and faculty are competitive with the best 
in the nation and world. Design recognition and academic acknowledgement of the success 
of the alunmi, faculty and students attest to the excellence the school has achieved. 
The B.S. degree in architecture will qualify graduates to pvursue a career in any number of 
fields or to continue graduate work in professional fields such as architecture, urban plan- 
ning or law.

The College of Journalism is charting a new course of programs and study focuses that will make 
it smaller with higher admission standards and expanded career paths for students. A new unified cur- 
riculum will be introduced in 1999 and will provide students with more courses in journalism ethics, 
graphics and history under a proposal approved by the College's Faculty Assembly. In this College students 
have several options of focus including more preparation for on-line joumalism and magazine careers, as well as 
a learning about such specialized reporting areas as business and finance, science, the environment and children 
and family issues. 

The College has recently appointed the Pulitzer-winning journalist Haynes Johnson, formerly 
with the Washington Post and the Washington Star, as a full professor holding the Knight Chair in Jour- 
nahsm. Dr. Lee Thomton, a former CBS White House correspondent and CNN producer, holds the College's 
Richard Eaton Chair in Broadcast JoumaUsm. With these and other faculty members, students are provided a 
quality education, which is made evident in the leading graduates of the College. Some of these include ABC- 
TV news correspondent Connie Chung and CBS "60-minutes" producer Jay Kemis. 

The College is home to several professional outreach programs and publishes American Joumal- 
ism Review, a national monthly magazine that assesses print, broadcast and on-line news performance. Also, the 
College's smdent-operated wire service. Capital News Service, offers hands-on public affairs reporting experi- 
ence, with stories transmitted to regional daily and weekly newspapers from bureaus in Annapohs and Washing- 
ton D.C. 


CLIS has been at the forefront of preparing leadership professionals since its inception on 1965. Today the college is 
forging new connections with other academic disciplines to facilitate the exploration of vital questions about infor- 
mation policy and services in the ll" Century. The program offers degrees for individuals interested in careers in 
information services and management at the masters and Ph.D. levels but not for undergraduates as a major. 

Because of the University of Maryland's location in the cosmopolitan center of cultural and intellectual activity and 
political power, CLIS students have the opportunity to do work and study experience with leading technological and 
national agencies like NASA, the Smithsonian, and the National Library of Medicine. Information and knowledge 
constimte a vital resource for our society, economy, educational system and government. The creation, management, 
accessibility and use of this information are critical to the future of our society as technological forces are rapidly 
transforming the information arena. This presents both challenges and opportunities for information professionals. 

CLIS is the primary center for education, research and service in the field of information studies in the state of 
Maryland. The CLIS supports the university's role as a premier research institution by offering programs that are 
internationally recognized for their excellence in preparing information professionals for successful careers in the 
21" century. CLIS is a leader in defining and advancing the field of information studies. This field encompasses research into 
the creation, organization, use and impact of information on mstitutions, organizations and the lives of individuals. It analyzes 
the structure of problems and determines user needs. CLIS combines theoretical and conceptual structures with appropriate 
technology in the design of systems for information, use of learning, problem solving and decision making. It involves devel- 
oping policy guidelines for the optimal use of information resources and draws on the insights and ideas of many fields, 
including computer science, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, cognitive science, linguistics, communication, 
education, history and management. 

The Mission of CLIS is to advance the field of information studies through research and development, to prepare 
scholars for positions in research and teaching, to educate professionals for posifions in a wide variety of exisfing and 
emerging informadon environments, to infuse informafion studies into the university's educational programs at all 
levels, to provide leadership to the informafion professions through the study of ethical, polifical, social and technical 
issues related to informafion in modem society, to assist organizations (governments, businesses and nonprofit orga- 
nizations locally, nationally and internationally) in the formulation of policies, the development and application off 
information systems and services and the use of information technologies.

The College of Life Sciences delivers three undergraduate programs: Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Biological 
Sciences. With options in: Behavior. Ecology, Evolution and Systematics, Cell Molecular Biology and Genetics, 
Entomology, General Biology, Individual Studies, Marine Biology, Microbiology, Physiology and Neurobiology, 
Plant Biology, and Zoology. 

The college has provided many opportunities to its students such as a model pre-Freshman Academic Achieve- 
ment program for minority students, which assists students in transition to college with math instruction. Funded 
by NIH, the College's BIOMAP program promotes the transition of minority community college smdents to the 
university. Significant research opportunities for undergraduates have been made available through the College's 
internship program and its Howard Hughes Medical Intern Grant, just renewed for $1.6 million. This supports 
undergraduate research in faculty labs. Several unique aspects besides these include mandatory advising and a 
required survival course for freshmen. These efforts were rewarded by a 93.8% freshman retention rate in the 97- 
98 academic year, a rate that led all major colleges. 

In the fall of 1998, the College of Life Sciences and the Smith School of Business initiated a five-year Bachelors/ 
Masters program. This is a "Fast-Forward" program from which graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science 
degree in either Biochemistry, Chemistry or Biological Sciences and a Masters in Business and Management. 

The Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) is a venture of the Colleges of Agriculture 
and Natural Resources and Life Sciences and the FDA. Funded by a $7 million grant. Life Sciences has taken a 
lead in developing this program which addressed all areas of food, safety, risk assessment and nutrition. JIFSAN 
cements a permanent relationship between the FDA and College Park. The President's Food Safety Initiative 
identifies JIFSAN and the University to lead a nationwide consortium on risk.

The School of Pubhc Affairs is dedicated to providing current and future leaders with the 
knowledge and skills they need to craft and implement public policies in a complex policy envi- 
ronment. With the blurring roles among the public, private, and non-profit sectors in policy making and 
management, our graduates need to excel not only in their chosen fields, but also across sectors. This 
education experience is at once rigorous, versatile and comprehensive. 

The School of Public Affairs attract students because it offers unique academic and pro- 
fessional opportunities in a diverse setting. These are made possible by a nationally recognized 
faculty who bring experience with government and private enterprise into the classroom. The 
location of the school also adds to the opportunity for internships, networking and hands-on 
learning experience. 

In the school, five disciplines are emphasized: finance, statistics, economics, politics and ethics. 
Students specialize in intemational security and economic policy, public sector financial management, 
environmental policy or social policy.

Man'land recorded nine shutouts 
this season and held five other op- 
ponents to only one goal. Its most 
important shutout was its 1-0 over- 
time victory over Virginia in the 
ACC finals on Nov. 8. In addition, 
the Terps did not allow a goal for tlie 
final 95 minutes against North Caro- 
lina in the .^CC semifmals on Nov. 
6. Sophomore goalie Angela Piatt 
led Marylands defensive chaige. Piatt 
registered four solo shutouts. Plaits 
most impressive performance came 
in the Terps 2- 1 double-overtime vic- 
tory over then No. 1 1 Michigan on 
Sept. 5, as she recorded a season-best 
15 saves. Eight of Platts saves against 
the Wolverines came in the first sud- 
den-death overtime period. 

Sophomore forward Keli 
Smith, who has started ev- 
ery game during her two 
years at Maryland, finished 
second on the team with 10 
goals this season, was 
named to the AU-ACC 
team, was a first-team Mid 
Atlantic Region All- 
America selection and was 
a second-team All-America 
selection. Smith turned in a

teams in school history, Maryland (16-6, 3-1 ACC) captured 
its second-ever ACC championship and advanced to the 
quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament for the fourth consecu- 
tive year. What makes the Terps 1998 accompUshments all the 
more impressive is that they had only two upperclassmen in 
their starting lineup on a consistent basis this season and only 
three returning starters from last season. Senior back Jen Pratt 
and senior forward Kasey Heiser were the only upperclassmen 
who were consistently in Marylands starting lineup. Pratt, 
sophomore midfielder Carla Tagliente and sophomore forward 
Keli Smith were the only returning starters from the 1997 squad.

son, including Pratt, Heiser, senior midfielder Ellen Wolf and 
junior forward Emily Ward. With a 3-0 victory over Massa- 
chusetts, field hockey coach Missy Meharg became the field

lax recap 
In keeping with recent tradition, the 1999 Maryland Terrapins' 

women's lacrosse team devised a team motto that typifies the team's 
long-standing goal: to reach the NCAA Final Four and contend for 
another national championship. It sets the tone for the squad to 
continue its amazing success of the 90"s. The team enters the 1999 
season with the most wins in the nation in theis decade ( 1 42) and the 
highest winning percentage (.922) since 1990. Maryland welcomes 
back seven starters and 16 letterwinners from a 1998 squad that 
postedan 18-3 record and captured the school's fourth straight na- 
tional title.

Counseling Center 

Director: Dr.Vivian Boyd 

As in years past, 
Maryland students dealing 
with a variety of personal, 
social, career, and aca- 
demic issues found sup- 
port at the Counseling Cen- 
ter. In individual counsel- 
ing, students discovered 
that seeking help is a sign 
of strength as they ex- 
plored a range of issues 
that included self-esteem, 
stress, relationships, sex, 
family problems, and mak- 
ing career decisions. 

In workshops and 
group counseling, students 
met with others who had 
similar problems, inter- 
ests, and goals. The Coun- 
seling Center offered 
weekly support groups that 
addressed a wide variety of 
topics, such as career ex- 
ploration, dissertation sup- 
port, procrastination pre- 
vention, and stress man- 
agement. Group offerings 
included, "Caught in the 
Net," a support group for 
reducing dependency on e- 
mail and the Internet; 
"Circle of Sisters," a sup- 
port group for black 
women; and "Women, 
Food, and Obsession with 
Thinness," which ad- 
dressed problems of body 
image and eating. Consul- 
tation, counseling and child 
testing also were provided 
to parents, single parents, 

also helped students who 
were choosing a major, es- 
tablishing career goals, 
and considering job oppor- 
tunities. An important as-

and interests relate to 
future career satisfac- 
tion and success. Stu- 
dents in need of improv- 
ing their academic skills 
discovered another 
valuable resource atthe 
Counseling Center: 
education specialists 
who helped them en- 
hance such skills as 
reading, writing, note- 

Workshop topics in- 
cluded study skills, 
exam skills, time man- 
agement, English con- 
versation, end-of-se- 
mester survival skills, 
and completing theses 
and dissertations. Many 
students who were back 
in school after a break in 
their formal education 
took advantage of the 

counseling helped these 
students make the tran- 
sition to academic life. 
The Counseling 
Center also provided 
services for students 
with disabilities, includ- 
ing help in locating inter- 
preters for deaf or hard- 
of-hearing students; 
readers for visually-im- 
paired students, blind 

students, and students 
with learning disabilities; 
and assistance with ac- 
cess to various buildings 
and facilities on campus. 
In the Counseling Center's 
Testing Office, students 
took tests that related to 
the work they were doing in 
counseling, such as ex- 
ploring their career inter- 
ests. Others took national 
standardized tests admin- 
istered by the Testing Of- 
fice, such as the GRE, 
Miller Analogies. Re- 
search assistance and in- 
dividual consultation were 
provided to students with 
questions about research 
design and statistics and 
writing project proposals, 
theses, and dissertations. 
It was a busy and 
productive year in the 
Counseling Center. From 
individual and family coun- 
seling growth groups, and 
academic skills */ork- 
shops, to career interest 
testing, disability support, 
and research assistance, 
the services provided by 
the Counseling Center 
staff reached a wide range 
of Maryland students in

Department of Campus Parking 

Director: J. David Allen 

The Department of 
Campus Parking continues to 
strive towards meeting its 
goal of responding to the 
parking needs of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland College 
Park campus. In addition to 
visitors to the campus, the 
department is charged the 
task of providing parking 
for more than 40,000 student 
and faculty/staff members. 
This responsibility in- 
cludes the issuance of 
55,000 parking permits 
yearly, and the collection 
of fees associated with 
these permit; meter mainte- 
nance and collection; the 
management and upkeep of 
parking lots and garages; 
and fair and consistent en- 

In order to familiar- 
ize the campus community 

with these programs information 
is disseminated through articles 
in the Diamondback, brochures, 
the Campus Parking Homepage 
on the web-site, 
yearly updates 
of the parking 
rules and regu- 
lations, cam- 
pus parking 
maps, and at- 
tendance at 
various cam- 
pus activities 
(i.e. fairs, work- 
shops, etc.) 

In re- 
sponse to the 

needs of the campus community, 
the PIT Crew continues to offer 
assistance to motorist for lock- 
outs, flats, jumpstarts and gas 
runs. In addition, our most recent 
efforts have been the installation 
of electronic meters throughout 

the campus and the introduction 
of the meter debit card. The 
electronic meters work in con- 
junction with the Meter Debit 
Card and ac- 
cept coins as 
well. These 
new meters 
have cut down 
on the amount 
of time spent 
meters due to 
foreign ob- 
jects being in- 
serted into 
them in place 
of coins. They 
also secure 
more accurate time. The intro- 
duction of the meter debit card 
eliminates the need to carry 
coins around to pay the meter. 
The card can be replenished at 
he CTS machine located in the 
lobby of the Department of Cam- 

pus Parking. Another feature is 
that the user is able to put more 
time on the meter than neces- 
sary and retrieve unused time (in 
30 minute increments) back 
onto the card. 

The opening of the two cashier 
attended parking facilities, Sta- 
dium drive Garage and the Col- 
onnade Drive Visitor Pay Lot. 
Stadium Drive Garage offers an 
additional 600 spaces for the 
students and 200 for visitors. 
The Colonnade Drive Visitor 
Pay Lot, the most popular of the 
two, has 145 pace and is used 
by visitors as well as students 
that may have business in or 
near the Van Munching area. 
Easy access to their destina- 
tion, and the fact that there is an 
attendant on the lot, makes 
parking at Colonnade worth the 
$1.00 per hour parking fee

The Greek community gives students the chance to 
make a big campus small. The chapter serves as a 
place where friends become family, and the friendships 
last a lifetime. Fraternities and sororities also give mei^ 
bers the opportunity to network with alumni and intej 
act with mentors who have made a successful transi- 
tion from college to the work force. The Greek com- 
munity prides itself on the opportunities it provides 
students for leadership development. Academics and 
scholarship are ideals upon which Greek organizations 
are founded, and students' academic responsibilities 
unquestionably receive the highest priority. Chapters 
at UMCP sponsor and participate in more community 
service and fund raising activities than other student 
organizations, raising over $90,000 annually for vari- 
ous philanthropies and providing hundreds of hours 
for community service each year. J[

sity of Maryland with a goal to making a better man. The majority of the brothers are Agricultural or Life

Alpha Sigma Phi was founded at Yale University on December 6, 1845. To this day, the fraternity has stayed 
close to its idealistic and scholarly roots. The tenth oldest fraternity in the United States, Alpha Sig prides itself 
on its rugged individualism and its mission "to better the man." Alpha Sigma Phi nationally boasts a strong and 
cohesive web of Alpha Sig chapters from coast to coast at a wide range of schools. The Colony at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland will soon be the youngest of 125 chapters. 

Alpha Sig at Maryland was begun last year by a group of students who desired to bring out and focus on the 
positive aspects of fraternal life and enhance them. This group of Founding Fathers wanted a brotherhood 
where gentlemenship, academic success, personal growth and leadership played an integral role. Alpha Sig has 
become a brotherhood of individuals working together towards their common goals. The fraternity is very 
diversified. They boast that this brotherhood is even closer knit because of the diversity among their brothers.

Some people think that big houses, extensive social calendars and active alumni support are what makes a 
house successful. These are not the causes, but rather the results of a successful chapter. Delta Chi has been on 
campus for nine years, preserved through four address changes and currently resides in a structure housing 30 
members. In terms of social calendars, there's something to do every weekend, be it a party, date function, etc. 
Delta Chi's alumni are actively involved in chapter operations and house improvements. 

Delta Chi is made of various personalities, ideas and traditions, looking to reach the one goal of brotherhood. 
Delta Chi offers many opportunities to succeed at what one does best, be it leadership, academics or creativity. 
Delta Chi's associate member and active member programming help to build character, academic responsibil- 
ity, and self confidence. Delta Chi stresses fratemalism through individualism, for without the individual, the 
fraternity would not exist. Delta Chi's associate members are not molded, they are brothers waiting to be

In 1888, four women attending Boston University chose not to join the women's fraternities akeady on campus but to 
form their own instead- a society whose purpose was to "estabhsh a perpetual bond of friendship" and whose members 
would be "kind alike to all". Their fraternity Delta Delta Delta, was founded on Thanksgiving Eve in 1888. 
Today, the Alpha Pi chapter of Tri Delta is a strong presence at Maryland, both on and off campus. Annually the sisters 
of the fraternity sponsor fundraising events to profit children's cancer charities. Their philanthropy is the Lombardi 
Cancer Center- an art therapy program for pediatric oncology patients. 

Enthusiasm for both Greek and campus involvement is what places Tri Delta among the top sororities both locally and 
nationally. Delta Delta Delta was awarded the President's Cup for the 1996-1997 and 1997-1998 academic years. This 
award is given to the most outstanding sorority which best envisions the ideals of the Greek system. 
Tri Deltas share a close relationship with neighboring tratemities and sororities. They take pride in being diversified and 
well rounded. Members participate in a variety of organizations both on and off campus, including Order of Omega,

Delta Gamma started in 1 873 in Oxford, Mississippi, when three girls unable to go home for Christmas break 
from the Lewis School founded the fraternity. The women adopted the letter H as a symbol for hope. A few

Maryland has firm beliefs in academic excellence, community service, and leadership opportunities and cam- 
pus development. Their main philanthropic event is to aid the blind and sight conservation. Members partici-

During the fall semester of 1 899 at the City College of New York, several high school classmates found 
themselves renewing their friendships as college freshmen. These men soon realized that no existing fraternity 
would accept them due to their religious differences. They say no reason that differences in religion, race, or 
creed dictated who were quality men. On December 10,1899 they decided to found a fraternity that embodied 
their ideals of equality, loyalty, and brotherhood-Delta Sigma Phi. 

The notion that quality men come in all forms, regardless of race, backgrounds, and religion is still the core 
belief of the Alpha Sigma chapter here at the University of Maryland. Through the cultivation of life long 
friendships and the recognition of Delta Sigma Phi's founding fathers' beliefs, the brothers of the Alpha Sigma 
chapter have prospered both individually and collectively. Delta Sigma Phi offers a tradition of excellence in 
community, leadership, athletics, philanthropy, and social involvement within the Greek system ad the com- 
munity. Motivation, self-enhancement, acceptance, and brotherhood are the key elements of the experience of 
the bond at Alpha Sigma chapter. 

It's not enough to be good, for those who aspire to be GREAT!

As the doors of Gamma Phi Beta again open to the house located at Nine Fraternity Row the doors of opportu- 
nity open also for the women of Gamma Phi. The house was closed in early 1990's for remodeling, but now 
with the dust cleared the women of Gamma Phi are ready to reclaim their beloved structure. 

Not having a house for a period of time has truly taught the women of Gamma Phi many valuable lessons. 
Without a structure to call their own, women of Gamma Phi were forced to search inside themselves to find the 
true meaning of sisterhood. The women learned that sisterhood is not the house in which you live or the 
possessions that you have, but that the true meaning of sisterhood is the love and loyalty that you share for each 

The sisters in Gamma Phi experience a very busy social schedule. Besides formal and dated parties, Greek 
Week and Homecoming, the sisters of Gamma Phi also enjoy big and little sister events, crescent sister events, 
parents weekend events, and many community activities. 

The sisters of Gamma Phi not only cherish the loyalty that they have for each other but also diversity within 
their sorority. Every sister in Gamma Phi has a quality of characteristic that is uniquely hers. Within the walls 
of Gamma Phi you will find friendships that will last a lifetime and bonds that will never be broken.

Let's face it. sororities often carry with them an image of women who act alike, talk alike, dress alike and ha\'e 
no sense of indi\idualit\'. But as a Maryland woman, we know that's not you. As women of Kappa Alpha 
Theta, that is not us either Founded in 1 870 as the first Greek letter fraternity for women (we're older than the 
word sorority), the original mission of Theta was to unify the individual strength of it's members. 

Theta 's are involved in a wide variety of activities. Panhellenic Association, Order of Omega, various honor 
societies, Maryland Dance Team, Lacrosse Team, Field Hockey Team, Cheerleading, Honors, and Scholars 
programs are only a few. Theta's will fill up our social calendars with weekend tailgates and parties, winter 
and spring formals, dated parties, destination unknown, dinners, sisterhood events. Homecoming and Greek 
week { we were the 1997 o\erall Greek week winners!) . Theta always has something going on, and Theta's 
sisterhood spirit is the best! 

Theta has and always will continue to celebrate strong, visionary women, and demand the best of ourselves 
academically, socially, and civically. Theta's are a diverse group of women yet, the members of Kappa Alpha 
Theta are a loyal group of sisters. Theta's laugh together during the good times and lend a shoulder through the 
tough times. Theta sisterhood lasts beyond graduation; it unites us for a lifetime. And Kappa Alpha Theta

Kappa Alpha Order has been on campus at the University of Maryland, College Park longer than any other fraternity. 
The chapter has a rich tradition of producing leaders, scholars, athletes, and gentlemen alike. Founded in 1 865, KA is 
well known across the country for upholding the ideals of chivalry. 

The men of Kappa Alpha Order are especially known as being the gentlemen of the fraternity world. Members 
awaiting initiation are well-schooled in etiquette. KA's are also taught some of the important aspects of 
chivalry as it exists today. Our motto, "Dieu et les dames" (God and Women), calls us to be respectful, 
courteous, thoughtful, and to always maintain strong character. 

Here at UM, the Beta Kappa Chapter of Kappa Alpha Order resides at One Fraternity Row. It is a landmark at 
the University. The chapter's executive board is summoned each semester to come up with the vision for the 
future of the chapter. This vision never strays from the ideas of leadership, scholarship, athletics, and gentle- 
manly conduct. This is what a gentleman of Kappa Alpha Order strives for.

Originally founded as an alternative to traditional fraternities, the Beta Omicron Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau 
maintains those ideals by stressing brotherhood, scholastic leadership and indi\ iduality. Nationally, the Phi 
Tau family spans across the nation to 134 colleges and universities, providing strong alumni support. Locally, 
the Phi Kappa Tau chapter is growing stronger every semester. In 1996-199. membership grew 1 10'7f as we 
walked off with Greek Life's "Program of the Year" for our philanthropy project, "House of Michael Myers." 

It is a goal of all Phi Taus not to lose sight of why they are here- for an education. The current brotherhood 
boasts two brothers with full academic scholarships, as well as six members on the Dean's list. 

A Phi Tau is also molded for future leadership success. The Phi Kappa Tau National president. Greg Holden, 
is an alumnus of Beta Omicron here at Maryland while Paul Newman is an alumnus of the Beta Chapter at 
Ohio University. Current Phi Taus are taking steps in the right direction as our brothers are acti\ e in the Greek 
system, varsity wrestling, varsity tennis, varsity swimming. Golf Course Superintendents Association of .Ajnerica, 
The Diamondback, and the Honors Program. 

One of the greatest fears of non-Greeks is that they will cease to be themselves if they join a fraternity. At Phi 
Kappa Tau, we stress individuality. Phi Kappa Tau's goal is not carbon copied brothers, but a diverse group of 
men who will each contribute to the fraternity in theu" own way. If everyone in the fraternity has the same 
qualities no one will have gained anything from the experience. But, by ha\ing brothers with different at- 
tributes, a Phi Tau graduates a better scholar, a better leader, and a better individual.

In 1856, at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, a young Alabamian named Noble Leslie DeVotie and his 
seven closest friends founded Sigma Alpha Epsilon. From those humble beginnings Sigma Alpha Epsilon has 
grown and been through many difficulties. Only five months after the creation of SAE, the University of 
Alabama abolished fraternities. The original chapter of SAE was forced to disband 1 8 months later, fortunately 
SAE had expanded to six other colleges in that time. 

Since SAE was founded at Maryland in 1943, they have been a group of truly secure and confident men who 
posses superior qualities such as knowledge, leadership, athletic ability, and high self esteem. SAE's enjoy 
theme parties, dated parties, and formals. They are involved in a variety of campus activities and continually

solving, brainstorming, and change. We're not afraid of taking risks. We're looking for spunky, high-spirited people who 
tfirive on challenge, who aggressively pursue a goal, end who ore as good at team playing as they are ct autonomous,
