It can be so much easier to be the younger 
child. You get to be babied a little longer, you get a little 
more spoiled, and of course, because your brother and 
sister paved the way, you don't have to fight as hard for 
freedoms Hke curfews and cars. The University of 
Maryland has existed for many years, and as each class 
graduates they pave the way for the younger child, 
making it easier for them to grow and learn, because with 
each departing class, one more hurdle has been con- 
quered and one more path has been paved. And as the 
older child continues to grow, we, the younger child or 
student, can still learn from their mistakes, and watch 
them succeed and follow in their footsteps. 

Being the baby is not the easiest task in 
the world however, because although you don't have to 
fight as hard to get your freedom, more is expected of 
you. You have to improve on what was done, and make 
it better. 

We, as students and participants in our 
campus community, have been doing this since our 
school began. We have been improving our standards, 
achieving goals, winning awards, fighting the battles of 
oppression and discrimination, and so much more. It is 
quite possible that you, personally, haven't done any of 
these things, but as a class, we all do it every day, and 
when we graduate we will only be remembered as a 
class. As a group of collective individuals. A group of 
young adults, be you black , white, hispanic, asian, gay or 
straight, you, have achieved something that many have 
not. You, as graduates, have entered the ranks of learned 
individuals, and for that congratulations. And a thank 
you from your underclassmen, your younger siblings, and 
your peers. You helped pave the way for us. 

This years book is entitled Veni Vidi Vici, 
I came, I saw, I conquered, in honor of all of the gradu- 
ates, including the class of 2000, who have obtained their 
degrees from Maryland. The people who have made us 
what we are today. They, as a class, came to the Univer- 
sity to obtain knowledge, saw there goal of acquiring a 
degree, and conquered, receiving the degree and walking 
away from this University a better and stronger indi- 

Congratulations Class of 2000, 1 can only 
hope that in a few years I too will have been able to 
follow your footsteps and leave our school better then it 
was when I came.

We come to college to expand our minds, to learn, and to grow. By learning, growing, 
and expanding we can better our lives and the lives of others. However, without our teachers and 
professors, we would not be encouraged to do so. Adele Hagner Stamp fought for higher salaries for 
teachers and better schools as education chair of the State Federation of Women's Clubs. She herself 
was a teacher and later became Maryland's first dean of women. During her 38 year career at Mary- 
land she watched the enrollment of women rise from 93 in 1922, to 4,000 in 1960. Since then the 
numbers of women enrolled at Maryland have continued to rise. 

Stamp worked hard to encourage women to succeed in college. She formed the first womens 
government association, a branch of the American Association of University Women, and the Mortar 
Board honor society. 

The student union was renamed in honor of Ms. Stamp, to the Adele H. Stamp Student Union in 
her memory to honor her achievements, in the fight for women's rights.

The American dream- get rich quick, but in all actuality, it takes hard work, patience, 
and persistence. College is not the place to get rich, but it does get you on your feet, and it does 
make you become responsible, which can lead to being successful. 

A. James Clark was a student here around the 1950's and he majored in civil engineer- 
ing. When graduated he started working for the George Hyman Construction Company, nineteen 
years later of working hard, staying late, and giving a little more then everyone else paid off when 
he became president and CEO of the firm. Now, this firm is a subsidiary of CCG, Clark Construc- 
tion Group, a group in which he is currently chairman of the board. 

A. James Clarks' group has built nationally known landmarks like, U Enfant Plaza in 
Washington D.C., Orioles Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, and Lincoln Center. More impor- 
tantly to us as students, Mr. Clark has helped us move into the future with a $15 million dollar 
donation to his alma mater, because of this, and his outstanding achievements, our engineering 
building was renamed the A. James Clark School of Engineering in his honor.

Optimism is something that should be taught in college, the art of being able to look 
on the bright side of life is something so important, but consistently overlooked. James 
Henson created an imaginary utopic world enjoyed by children and adults alike, without 
Umitations. This world taught children not only their ABC's, how to share, and the concept 
of "Near and Far", but it showed us as adults that it is okay to smile at ourselves, and even 
though bad things happen, life goes on, and we still can be happy. Jim Henson was incred- 
ibly creative, his ideas taking shape into muppets, adorable puppets that stared in cartoons, 
movies, and educational TV. Henson's ideas on programming changed family television, 
when he created the Muppet Show, which later became the most widely watched television 
show in the world. 

When Jim Henson died at the age of 53 the world mourned. But his legacy 
carries on through his son who continues his work, and continues to teach children, but also 
teaches us to step back and look at life as a great and wonderful thing.

Mr. Millard E. Tydings was one of the most celebrated hero's in World War I. 
His strength, determination, and power helped him enlist in the army as a private and raise to 
the rank of Lt. Colonel. Mr. Tydings also helped make the modem day University of Mary- 
land, by getting the legislation passed that merged the Maryland Agricultural College with the 
professional schools in Baltimore. But his political career did not end there. 

Mr. Tydings chaired the committee against Senator McCarthy. At the time Senator 
McCarthy charged that the state was employing communists. Mr. Tydings was one of the few 
who stood up against the communist tactics, which eventually cost him his job as senator. But 
he believed and had the strength to do what he thought was right. 

Strength and courage are two things that a person needs to survive. The Tydings build- 
ing is named after Mr. Millard E. Tydings in remembrance if his strength and courage not only 
in World War I, but also in the senate.

William Purington Cole, Jr. was a great lawyer and a great soldier. He started his 
career here at Maryland studying law. He was admitted to the bar in 1912, but he had to stop prac- 
ticing law to go and do his duty in World War I, where he served as first lieutenant and captain of 
infantry overseas. When the war was over he came back to Towson and continued practicing law. 

Mr. Cole was elected to congress in 1927 and served for 15 years. He later resigned 
and became a judge for the U.S. Customs Court. In 1952 he accepted an appointment given by 
President Truman to be a judge for the U.S. Customs Court and Patent Appeals in New York City. 
Aside from his busy career he also served on the Board of Regents for 25 years. 

Cole Field House, in memory of Mr. William Purington Cole Jr., has become one of 
the most widely known buildings on campus and home of our Terrapin basketball teams. Mr. 
Cole's determination, strength, and persistence, have made him a role model for our University. 


Mr. Harry Clifton "Curly" Byrd is a prime example of how being ambitious and 
involved in one's community can lead to great rewards. Mr. Byrd was so involved in the cam- 
pus community that he came as a student and left as president of the University! ! ! 

Mr. Byrd's first job on campus was actually not in administration as we would all 
think, but in athletics. He loved sports, was an athlete himself, and started as a temporary coach 
for Maryland. He worked hard and eventually became the director of sports, until 1935 when 
he took over presidency. But he never lost his passion for football, in fact, he used his team's 
success to lobby money from state legislatures, which in the end help put us where we are 
today. Under President Byrd's leadership we developed an innovative American Studies Pro- 
gram and an educational extension program. University College, which has since become so 
large it is it's own entity entirely! 

President Byrd's ambition and persistence took us from a tiny "cow college" into a 
major institution. Byrd stadium is a reminder to us all of President Byrd's impact on not only 
athletics, but the University as a whole.

Samuel J. LeFrak is smarter then the average man. I don't know if his IQ is higher, or his 
brain is larger, but I do know that as a businessman he is very smart. He has been knighted by kings, 
cited by presidents, and has obtained many honorary doctorates. All for his international financing 
ideas, commitment to affordable urban housing, and his research in global and gas exploration. 

He graduated in 1940 with a B.S. in commerce and is chairman of the Le Frak organiza- 
tion. He personally has helped five U.S. Presidents, seven NY governors, seven New York City 
mayors, and the United Nations in planning for the century. He is world renowned for his ideas and 
his intellect, with countries like the People's Republic of China asking for his views on housing their 
massive population. 

The LeFrak building was named in his honor to his dedication and service to the global 
community and to his expertise.

Starting a new job is like starting college all over again, being the low man on 
the totem poll is a really difficult thing. But when you succeed and pull yourself up to a 
high position, it can be extremely gratifying. William Woodford Skinner, was a scientist 
who started studying the effects of agricultural chemicals and water pollution. His research 
helped us get to where we are today with restoring the Chesapeake bay and the Potomac 
River. His outstanding 40 year career in the U.S. Department of Agriculture lead him to 
retire as chief of the Bureau of Agricultural Chemistry. 

Mr. Skinner served on our board of regents for eighteen years, and of those 
eighteen he served as chair for seven. We dedicated the Skinner building to him in his 
honor for the outstanding work that he did not only for our University, but for our environ-

Mary Stallings Coleman liked to be first. She was the first woman justice of the 
Michigan Supreme Court, the first Chief Justice, she received awards when she graduated, she 
was among the first named to the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame, and she was the first woman 
to ever receive the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1973. She had to be better in order to suc- 
ceed and to have traveled as far in life as she did. 

We as a school have also become "better" as we try and grow older. We have been 
ranked in the top twenty programs in disciplines like engineering, computer science, physics, 
journalism, art history, oceanography, education, and many others. (National Research Council 
Ranking) Our University Honors Program was selected as one of the top nine best in the Guide 
to Ivy League Programs at State School Prices, (ARCO), and we are the only school in our quad- 
rant of the United States to have both engineering and business programs ranked in the top 
twenty-five by U.S News and World Report.

Members of the Class of 1997, as I stand before you to deliver your commence- 
ment address, I am reminded of a funny story. Unfortunately, I can't tell it, because it's dirty. 
It's the one about the two guys who are golfing, and one gets bitten by a snake. Ha ha! That's a 
good one! 

But seriously, you are about to leave this high 
school or university and enter into a new era- an era that, if 
current trends continue, will be: the future. Speaking of the 
future, I am reminded of a quotation by Steve Miller, who 
wrote: " Some people call me Maurice, because I speak of 
the pompatus of love." 

No, sorry, wrong Steve Miller quotation. I 
meant this one: "Time keeps on slippin', slippin' slippin', 
into the future." How true, true, true, young people! But by 
the same token you must not forget another important part 
of your lives: the past. As students, you have spent the past 
in school memorizing facts such as who was the ninth 
president of the United States, and what percentage of the 
atmosphere is nitrogen. Many times you have said to your- 
self: "What good will these facts do me in the real world?" 

Young people, you'll find that the things you 
learned in school will be vitally important to your success, Provided that you are a contestant 
on Jeopardy. Otherwise they're useless. In the real world, there are few occasions when your 
boss rushes up to you and says: "Tell me what percentage of the atmosphere is nitrogen RIGHT 
NOW or we'll lose the Winkersnood contract!" In the real world, it's much more helpful to 
know things like what the area code for Fort Lauderdale is. 

The answer, I am to report, is " 954." What kind of area code is that? You are too 
young to remember this, but there was a time when there were only about five area codes in the 
entire world, and they all had either a "1" or a "0" in the middle, the way the Good Lord in- 
tended area codes to be as in "212", an area code that came over on the Mayflower. But today, 
in this "anything goes" era of drugs and crime and inter-league baseball, ANY random three 
digit number can be an area code, and the phone companies, which are all run by Candice 
Bergen, are adding mutant ones at a rate of hundreds per day. Do you want to know why the 
phone companies are so eager to get your long-distance business? Because pretty soon EV- 

Who is going to fight this injustice? Not my generation. My generation is cur- 
rently occupied full time with applying skin moisturizers. No, it is up to you to take on the 
telephone companies, and also the companies that make the cardboard food packages that 
have the little dotted- line semi circles that say "PRESS TO OPEN." 

Let me ask you a question: have you EVER been able to open a package by 
pressing that little semi-circle? I didn't think so. Those semi-circles are reinforced at the 
package factory with titanium; they can easily deflect bullets. NASA pastes those semi- 
circles on the nose of the Space Shuttle to protect it during re-entry. 

Let me ask you another question: Have you every tried to wrap leftover food in 
clear plastic wrap using the so-called "cutting edge"? If so, did you get a nice, square piece, 
like the one the cheerful homemaker always gets in the commercial? Don't make me laugh 
until saliva dribbles onto my commencement robe. What you got was a golf-ball sized wad 
that looks like a dead jellyfish. THE "CUTTING EDGE" CUTS NOTHING, YOUNG 
PEOPLE! Fact: For every leftover food item that American consumers are able to success- 
fully wrap, they waste more than thirty-seven square miles of plastic-enough to cover all of 
Manhattan Island, or the late Orson Welles. 

And what is the Scientific Community doing about these problems, young 
people? THEY'RE CLONING SHEER Great! Just what we need! Sheep that look MORE 
ALIKE that they alread>r3feTTFSikTTlot, Scientific Conir^ 

Oh, I could go on members of the Class of 1997, but I see that the man with the 
tranquilizer-dart gun is here. So let me just close here with some inspirational words from the 
ninth president of the United States, Steve Miller, who said, and I quote : "Jungle love, it's 
drivin' me mad, it's makin me crazy." 

I blame all this nitrogen. -Dave Barry

nt Life 

Living on campus can be one of the most rewarding, yet difficult 
and scary things. With each new dorm and each new roommate 
comes new problems, decisions, trials, and a better understanding 
of one's self. Resident Life gives students the chance to live awa> 
from their parents while still under their wing. This chance is alsc 
one of the most important lessons one faces in college, and being 
your own person and living your own dreams out, is the most 
difficult thing you will have to learn in your life. Living on 
campus can make the transition from childhood into the "real 
world" and easier one. 


Away from home. 

Dear Mom and Dad, 

Hey! It's me your darling child! Sorry I haven't written lately but life has been so incredibly busy!! 
Between classes, homework, ftiends, and activities, I haven't had time to breathe!! 

So my life, it's been a little crazy, I had a floor meeting last night, we decided to decorate out floor for 
Halloween! I think its gonna be so cool, everyone is getting so competitive!! (But I think we'll win!) People have been 
doing the most outrageous things to there floors like, making the floor a pumpkin patch, a haunted house, or a hayride. 
Its so funny seeing people sneak upstairs with tree branches! One group took laundry detergent and a black light and 
wrote things on the walls! It looked so cool, supposedly lots of faculty and stafifbring their children , and resident life 
brings in children from Washington DC! I don't know who benefits more from the trick-or-treaters, the children getting 
the candy, or the big kids distributing it! ! 

My roommate told me that at the holidays, resident life plans events, but students take celebrating in the 
dorms seriously. Almost every room has a tree or a menorah, and people string lights out the windows as well! ! I can't 
wait to see lights hanging from the high-rises! Oh yeah- there is also an event where you can get bags and fill them with 
toys to give to children at the holidays! It's a great program, and my roommate said it was cool seeing everyone together 
and try and collect toys for children. I guess it helps the community and builds school spirit! I am really looking forward 
to it! 


I have yet to gain the freshman fifteen! Thank god my room is next to the gym! Dinning hall food is 
really pretty good. I was shocked to find that out! But some things are killer, its hard to choose the right foods to eat. 
You know me and my thing for cake! ! So me and some kids on my floor go to the gym every night and work out. I 
swim, Abby runs, Chris lifts weights and so on! There is so much to do! Next time you see me I'll be looking pretty 
buff! Or ready to wear shorts in the summer, either way I am having fun! 

Just so you guys don't wony, you should know 1 am living in a substance free floor. That means no 
alcohol or tobacco is allowed on the floor. At first I was disappointed, but now I am happy about it. The floors are 

cleaner, the air is cleaner, and I don't have to 
worry about my roommate throwing a drunken 
rage at 4 in the morning! Fines, citations, and 
permanent record blemishes is something that 
I don't have to wony about! I've got enough 
on my plate with school, friends, and intramu- 
ral soccer! 

The only thing that I am 
lacking on is sleep! I've been running around 
so much and have been so busy, I have become 
so tired! I used to go to bed at 1 1 , know I 
don't get tired until 1 ! ! ! But I've leam to deal 
with the being sleep deprived and yawning all 
the time. I just drink lots of coffee. Big 32 
ounce coffees' from the dinning hall pumping 
I through my brain at all times of the day!! All 
day and all night! 

Speaking of all night, the 
University All Nighter was last night! ! It was 
so much fun! There was so much to do! 
There were dances and shows and a money 
game! Yeah, MONEY!!! There was this cool 
thing that let us ti-y and catch money as it blew 
around! It was so neat! 

That's about it! I am having a great time! I 
miss you both a lot! This semester is 
turning out to be pretty fun! (No dad, not to 
much fun.) Being away from home is weird 
but nice, no fighting with the sibUngs and 
dictating my own curfew. . .it's the hfe! I 
can't wait to se what's in store for next 
semester! I heard something about Art 
Attack, but I don't know what it is! 

I love you all! 

Your favorite child

North Camtiuj 

When you start living on campus, you normally start out in 
the high-rises. Although it means a longer walk to classes, you do 
get a better opportunity to meet people then you would on South 
Campus. Most people meet there best friends in the highrises. 

There are three communities on North Campus. Cambridge 
community, Ellicott Community, and Denton Community/ North 
Campus is also home to many of the university honors programs 
like Gemstone, and College Park scholars. 

Each building consists of residents, desk receptionists, resi- 
dent assistants, and a graduate coordinator. All postiJtions are held 
by students, making all communties run, lived in, and enjoyed by 

South Campus is generally considered the luxury dorms. Most students 
living on South Campus are normally upperclassmen. This side of Resident Life can 
present new challenges from life on North Campus, including taking care of your own 
bathroom and kitchen!! That's right! Many students living on South Campus are living in 
Resident Life run suites and apartments. These unique dorms are a good way to get used 
to living on your own, or atleast cooking and cleaning for yourself, a challenge for many. 

South Campus is also the new home to many honors dorms. The newest 
dorm being the reopening of Somerset Hall. This year Somerset Hall opened as the new 
CIVICUS building. This year students participating in this program are tackeling problems 
like global wanning and recycling. South Campus is also the home to the International 
Language House. This unique program requires students to speak another language for a 
percentage of time. Programs like the civicus program and the langauage house are just a 
few of the programs that set our Resident Life program, and the University as a 
whole,apart from other schools across the country!! 

p P'l 




Campus Rec 

Gaining the freshman fifteen is definatly easier than loosing it! The 
Campus Rec Center, located within easy reach of the dorms, gives students the 
opportunity to work out for free. This state of the art facility services 40,000 stu- 
dents yet maintians the facilities of any five star health club. Encompassing five 
pools, basketball and volleyball courts, a two story weight and nautilis workout 
room, and much much more, the Rec Center is the perfect place to hang out while 
sculpting the perfect body. 

The Rec Center also offers programs in self defense, a multitude of 
sports from mild to extreme, cardio training, and health awareness clinics. The 
excitement doesn't stop there, white water rafting, spelunking, rock climbing, 
kyaking, and mountain biking trips are regular events sponsered by the center. 

This amazing facility is also a great place to meet people. Because 
our school is so large, meeting friends with the same interests as yours can be a 
difficult thing. The rec center allows people with all types of personalities to work 
an play together in a healthy environment, based not on school or parties, but 
excercise and fun.

Dining Halls 

We here at Maryland are extremely lucky in the fact that our dining 
hall food is really good. Maryland's dining hall program provides good, 
healthy, food, for poor hungry students. 

South Campus dining hall services the south part of campus. It was 
the first renovated dining hall and a favorite here at Maryland. This dining 
hall is also home to many clubs and University programs like, MaryPirg, 
the Diamondback, and the Terrapin Express center. 

The Diner, or Ellicott Dining hall, finally finished renovation this 
year and one of the prettiest buildings on campus. This new facility ser- 
vices both the Cainbridge community and Ellicott community and, like all 
dining halls, is on the point system. This system allows students to pay for 
what they eat. Meaning you don't get charged a flat fee for everytime you 
walk in the dining hall! 

The Denton Dining hall turned into the Denton Buffett this year. 
This allows hungry students to pay a flat fee and each as much as they 
want. This new feature was a new and welcomed change to many of our 
hungrier residents!! 

Dining Services at Maryland has made great advances over the last 
couple years, and plans to continue their good work!

Help Center 

Being on your own can be a new and difficult at change. 
Maryland gives us many different opportunites to make life 
easier on us though through the various help centers on campus. 

The Writing Center, located in Taliefero hall is the perfect 
place to get help writing those long papers. We have to math 
programs, one run by resident life in the basement on Ellicott 
hall, and the other run by the Math Department in the Math 
building. These programs can make the difference between an A 
or a B. 

The Help Center, Counseling Center, and Learning 
Assistant Services, are two programs dedicated to helping stu- 
dents deal with issues including self esteem issues, depression, 
time and stress management, and anything else that is on your

Maryland is a very computer oriented 
scliool. Whether you are researching a paper 
on VICTOR, or the internet, or writing an 
audience analysis, or even writing email, 
chances are you are using a computer. Maiy- 
land offers numerous locations called WAM 
labs, or Work Stations At Maryland. WAM 
labs are places where students can go and get 
some serious, or not so serious work done. 
WAM labs are open 24 hours a day and tech 
support is avaiable here as well. 

As for studying, well. has to be 
done. And many times your room is not the 
most opportune place to do it. McKeldin 
Library and Hornbake Library both have 
study areas, many are open all night. Every 
floor in the resident halls also offer lounges 
that can be used for work. Many students 
choose other more interesting places, like the 
Mall, outside the Student Union, in any 
grassy spot, the rec center, or anywhere else 
thats quiet. With so much going on all the 
time it can be very difficult to get things that 
need to get done, completed.

With all the distractions College provides, class, or going to 
class, can be a hard and challenging thing. But that's what 
were here for, right?! To learn, achieve, and eventually, 

"Animal House," "PCU," "Dead Man on Campus," I bet you saw 
all those movies and said, "DUDE! I wanna go to college and party man!" Nope, 
oh huh, wrong way buddy, college, believe it or not, is hard work. Why else can 
it take FOREVER to get through? 

Well, whatever your reason for that question, the fact remains that 
tests, reports, and other fiin college stuff is hard!! Way different than high 
school! Remember the days when you could do your homework, study for a test, 
ind socialize with your friends, in the 15 minute bus ride? Well kiss those golden 
days goodbye! Welcome to the real world. 

College can be one of the most rewarding, yet difficult things to 
accomplish. Sitting down for 7 hours studying math can be just as much fun as 
julling teeth, but it has to be done. And the result? Hopefully more then just a 
jrade, hopefully you learned something! 

Learning. The difference between memorizing and knowing, and 
the whole point of college. After all your supposed to apply this stuff to the rest 
3f your life. What you learn today is what is going to help you get a job and 
jecome a successfiil individual. 

What a scary thought! Having to decide the rest of your life in 4 
short years! Thank goodness you came to Maryland, where you can dabble in the 
arts, take a gym class, and still wind up majoring in nuclear computer physics 
engineering, or some other absurd and difficult subject that probably lead to loss 
of hair and ulcers. 

But really now, Maryland offers some of the best programs in the 
country in fields varying fi-om engineering to business. Why else would some of 

the best and brightest be choosing 
Maryland over Harvard. I know our 
basketball team is good, but we have 
to be doing something else right! 
And we are. The 
colleges, schools, and programs on 
the following pages are preparing 
students to succeed. The faculty and 
staff of the colleges have some 
amazing credentials and are teaching 
some extremely interesting courses. 
And to top it off, some of the re- 
search being done in separate col- 
leges is getting attention from 
around the country! And with atten- 
tion comes grants, and with grants 
comes more equipment, which leads 
to a better learning environment, and 
so on. 


So why are you studying? Be- 
cause our courses are hard. They are 
rigorous and annoying and interesting and 
fun all at the same time. After all they are 
being taught by some of the most 
ineteresting and smartest people in the 
country. Believe it or not- your profes- 
sors know more than you do! ! And they 
really are preparing you for the real 
world. So crack open the books kids, 
learn something. You'll regret it when 
your 40 if you don't!!

Department of Campus Parking 

The main goal of the Department of Campus Parking is to meet and respond to 
the parking needs of the University of Maryland College Park campus. The Depart- 
ment of Campus Parking is charged with the task of providing parking for more than 
41,500 student and faculty/staff members as well as numerous visitors to the campus. 
This responsibility includes: 

-The issuance of over 50,000 parking permits yearly, and the collection of fees 
associated with these permits. 

-meter maintenance and collection 

-the management and upkeep of parking lots, garages, and pay facilities 

-the coordination of special event parking 

-fair and consistent enforcement 
In order to familiarize 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 regulations, cam- 
pus parking maps, and attendance at various activities (i.e., fairs, workshops, etc.) 

The PITCrew continues to offer assistance to motorists for lockouts, flats, jumpstarts and gas runs. Our most 
recent efforts have been: 

a) The institution of the "Special Events" section. Departments sponsoring events contact the Special Events 
Manager in order to arrange parking for their visitors. At that time they may request the services of the 
PITCrew to distribute permits and/or reserve parking spaces. Signs may also be ordered for events. If 
ordered the signs are installed prior to the event and removes afterwards. 

b) Introduction of the "Fall Semester-Only" permit. This permit allows students to purchase a parking permit 
for the Fall semester only. The pemiit has proved to be very convenient for December graduates or students that for 
some reason leave the university after the fall semester. The former refund process has been shortened because students 
no longer have to go through the long lines.

plan, renovated dining rooms, and articles written by our staff; have attracted national attention; most recently our staff 
was eature in Food Management's August 1999 magazine. Dining Services is constantly changing to meet our students' 
needs and many schools are looking to the University of Maryland at Colleg Park as an example. The highlight of 
Dining Services this year was the renovation of The Diner, fr)rmerly known as Ellicott Dining Hall. We enlarged the 
servery and expanded the seating area. We also premiered "North Woods", an all-you-can-eat buffet. As always, it is 
our pleasure serving you!

Studjicnt Life 

Aside from classes, resident life, and so on, there is a 
very important section of campus which is constantly 
overlooked. The following pages are a tribute to you, 
the students who make up is institution. 

Taking a break. .. 

Its Monday, its 1 1 :00am, its a beautiful day, you have two hours until your next class. Head to the 
student union, grab a bite to eat and make a bee line to McKeldin mall to soak some sun and refresh your brain. 
Five days a week you are told to sit up straight, listen, and learn. But, every once and a while in a glimmer of 
freedom you have the opportunity to tune out and relax. Luckily, the University of Maryland offers a rare chance 
for students to find an oasis of fun amidst the desert of class, exams, and papers. Check your calculus at the door, 
set your watch for snooze and explore the niche of the University that forces you to enjoy. 

Pool, bowling, and mindless video games await you in the union. The perfect opportunity to calm 
the headache, chill your ulcer, and commence drooling. Find your way to the campus rec center where you can 
exercise until walking down stairs becomes its own exam. Soak your weary eyes in a whirlpool of mint chocolate 
milk shake at the dining hall. And god forbid find a friend, a Frisbee, some grass and risk a disk shaped injury. 
Basically that hour that you scheduled to sleep between econ and that statistics like class that you may have gone 
to once or twice, can actually be utilized for good instead of evil. Wliat's the matter, you don't have time? Have 
you looked around lately, there are 40,000 other students finding time. After all didn't I read somewhere that this 
is the best time of our lives. 

"Woah. it gets harder than English 101?" You bet your vowels it does! So take advantage of the 
fact that your job doesn't always run 9 to 5. Find a local business, walk in, ask the owner/clerk why he or she is 
working. Smile, stick out your tongue, make unintelligible rat race business noises, and get the heck out of there! 


Dude, did you know that the campus 
actually has a bus that traverses the treacherous two mile 
route between the Union and the metro? No kidding. 
Believe it or not, you are now only a short slide from the 
capital of the country. The whole country you say? Indeed, 
the whole enchilada. Home of some serious museums, 
restaurants, and dare 1 say. mad clubs and "evening 
cstabhshments". For 3 bucks you can end up in the middle 
of the city, exactly the mayhem to divert you from your 
more important tasks. 

Go to class, get your sleep, eat 3 square 
meals a day (or you mother will kill me), but please, for 
the love of all that's good, get up and explore. There is 
honestly enough cool stuff to do to keep you occupied for 
the six years that the Aleutian Eskimo literature major you 
have been dreaming of may take you to earn.

hAidnJRht Madness 

Maryland basketball is far more than a sport, it is an institution! On one night, 
the campus stops in its tracks to welcome back its superstars. The madness is 
infectious, the school pride thickens the air. Will the new team fill the shoes of 
last years heroes? Maryland basketball mania begins with Midnight Madness. 
This adrenaline pumped showcase debuts why we have all the right stuff on the 
court. From alumni scrimmages to a full on slam dunk contest, Maryland bas- 
ketball began this year like it has in the past, the show ends at midnight but the 
basketball fever bums all year long. 



Every year when the leaves are changing 
color, the air is getting crisp and cool, exams, homework, 
and other fun school events are in full swing, homecoming 
comes along. And the only thing that people are thinking 
about between the hours of 1 and 4 on Saturday is football. 
Amidst the tailgates, horrible parking, people running 
around, and adults remembering their college years, the 
homecoming festivities begin. This year homecoming was 
the day before Halloween, and the result? A whole lot of 
wired college students ready to party and high on sugar. 

Although we didn't win our football game, 
there was fun left and right to be had. There were people 
reliving memories, telling stories, attending dances, meet- 
ing people, and listening to music. Through out the week 
different groups, held seminars, gave tours and did philan- 
thropy events in order to celebrate Maryland and her his- 
tory. And one day, you too will return to the same football 
game, where the outcome doesn't matter, but the memories 
that you share with the people around you do.

The Gymkana Troupe was founded at 
the University of Maryland in 1946 and has 
traveled all over the United States and 
abroad promoting gymnastics and drug-free 
lifestyles. It is sponsored by the College of 
Health and Human Performance. Member- 
ship is equally divided between men and 
women with majors in nearly every college 
and a 3.2 overall GPA. 

Today, Gymkana continues its tradi- 
tion of presenting exhibitional gymnastics 
and is believed to be the last collegiate 
exhibitional gymnastic organization still 
touring the United States. Membership is 
open to all University of Maryland students, 
regardless of their gymnastic ability. Most 
members join with little to no experience, 
but with much willingness to learn and 

Every show is a blend of gymnastics with acro- 
batics, from flips through a blazing hoop to handstands 
on a stack of chairs. There are three basic types of acts 
that Gymkana offers: traditional apparatus, acrosport, 
and circus-type novelty acts. One event is three men 
standing on the rungs of two ladders holding tightly 
while six women perform a choreographed routine for 
six to eight minutes. In another dangerous act, called 
the "double mini-tramp," two trampolines are welded 
together, with gymnasts jumping from one to the other 
before landing on a floor mat.

reek Life 

College is a chance for us to grow up. The transition to 
adulthood can be a rocky road. Sometimes we all need a 
little help from our brothers and sisters to come out on top 
and achieve in a large school like ours. The Greek system 
offers us the opportunity to meet people with the same 
interests as ours. With grades higher than the men's and 
women's average, amazing community service programs, 
and a circle of friends, the Greeks are trailblazing their 
way to becoming adults, and helping a few others along 
the way too. 

So you want to Go Greek! 

Feeling like the campus is to big? Your missing that large crew you had at home? Going Greek is a great way to mm a large campus 
into a small one. The Greek system on this campus consists of over 50 different greek organizations ranging from academic, to service, to 
social. Our Greek Row has been featured in movies and commercials and is generally seen as the ideal Greek row. Greeks on this cmpus 
participate and sponsor many activities, workshops, philanthropy, and other social events. 

The two main Greek events would be Homecoming and Greek week. These two weeks consists of talent shows, parties, and other 
events specifically for Greeks. It is common to see many alumni floating around houses during these times reminiscing about there times here 
at maryland and there Brothers or Sisters. 

Greek Life at Maryland is a great way to get a great group of fHends real quick. It is also a way to find a group of people who share 
the same interests, are going through the same trials, and are Hi

In today's business environment, companies have to vi/ork 
smarter than ever in order to maintain a competitive edge. 
Global markets, technological advances, human resource 
capital, economic cycles; all of these place increasing demands 
for productivity and innovation upon businesses. The company 
that isn't forward-thinking will soon find itself obsolete. 
At Greenwell Coetz Architects, we utilize design as a strategic 
tool to help businesses achieve corporate objectives through 
improving productivity, encouraging team-building, and 
enhancing the work experience. We design for tf^ growing 
synergy between peopl*. led>aology, orp»iizattenaf jtructuw, 

consultants and interior architects, we offer expert 
the way business will be conducted in the future, 
and'create designs that "future-proof the office. We examine 
the way technology will offer greater mobility and fluidity, the 
way that people work and the tasks an organization performs. 
This forward -thinking approach is all part of our strategic 
fonnula to deliver space that works. 

We factor several things into the pricing of a 
Saturn. Food, shelter and clothing are a few. 

Satums have the lowest insurance costs in 
the compact class. And the maintenance 
costs are really low too. In fact, over the 
last seven years, Saturn maintenance costs 
have dropped an average of 59%. So if you 
owned a Saturn, you'd have money left over 
for some of life's other necessities. Like 
nachos and tube socks. ^PSi

when it's all said 

There are some people in your life that you will meet and that you will always be able to call your best 
friend. It doesn't matter if you don't talk to them for weeks, or months, or years. They are the people that you 
would love to call sister or brother, the ones that drive you nuts. . . yet you always seem to either bump into them 
Dr call them religiously. Most of us thought high school was the time to meet those people, but in all reality its 

Friends for a life time and beyond- that's probably what you told yourself. . . but in reality, think about 
the people you met your freshman year. How many of those people do you still talk to? You've probably lost 
touch with most of them, but you remember them like yesterday and if you saw them would love to just go run 
ind give them a big hug and say- "HEY! Where have you been and why haven't you called?" 

College is the place where growing up is inevitable. And although you might not talk to your freshman 
friends anymore, they have made an lasting impact on you and your life. They helped you grow up. They got 
you through homesickness, balancing a job and classes and partying, they would do things for you like showing 
you how to do your laundry or feeding you when you ran out of dining hall points. They kept you moving and 
they helped you survive. 

Survival. Who thought it could be so hard? Remember the people who kept you out all week before 
your term paper was due, and them proceeded to feed you caffeine through your veins as you typed out those 
ast 20 pages of meaningless blunder? Or those people that showed you where Terp Notes was? Or how to get 
3ut of a parking ticket? You know, those people who helped you keep your sanity on this very large campus, 
rhey are the same people who saw you for you, not as a number. These are the people in this book. 

There are over forty thousand students that attend the University of Maryland, and unfortunately 
they cannot all be seen in this book. But the yearbook should be more then a collection of pictures of things that 
you probably didn't see and of people that you never knew. Its more then a photo album of our awesome basket- 
ball team, or an expla- 

nation of a certain 
College, or even a 
collaboration of events 
that you might not have 
attended. The yearbook 
is your key to finding 
those long lost friends, 
remembering all of that 
fun stuff that you did 
when you probably 
should have been doing 
something else, and 
sharing stories. The 
only thing that everyone 
on this University has in 
common with everyone 
else is EVERYONE on 
this campus has con- 
quered many of the 
same obstacles and 
fears, which could have 

And done... 

fears, which could have set them back, or even 
made them give up. 

If you only remember one thing 
from this yearbook I hope it would be this... 
never forget your college years. Many say they 
are, or will be, the best in your lives. Don't 
believe them. I think they are just the begin- 
ning of something better, brighter, and more 
fulfilling. Remember your college years, 
cherish your college years, and LEARN from 
your college years. Never stop growing.

special Thank you's. 

If I did not have the help of some very wonderful people this book would never come out on time. We 
Dn the yearbook staff had to conquer some very interesting obstacles as the year progressed. I would like to 
thank Abby Vogel, my business manager, without her endless support, I probably would have lost some body 
Dart. She also did the sports section, which in my opinion looks wonderful. Thank you Abby. I'd Uke to thank 
Christian Ciardi, my photography editor, his patience and talent kept me not only sane, but also brought the 
Terrapin to a whole new step with the quality of our photography. Thank you Chris. I'd also like to thank my 
5taff who helped me in more then one way with layouts, pictures, and so much more. Thanks guys, I promise 
[lext year will run smoother! ! I would also like to say a big thank you to the Diamondback's photo department. 
You guys helped me out more than you know! ! The lack of pictures from spring semester left me in a bind, and 
yon guys really made my Ufe easier. THANK YOU!!
