University of Maryland students gathered for a candlelight vigil by Testudo, located in ! 
a result of last year's shooting massacre at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Virgi 



Testudo, located in front of the McKeldin Library. Tlie vigil honored 



! students lost as 



In Memoriam 



They were the next engineers of the world. Authors. Doctors. Wives. Grandfathers. They were 
the 32 students from Virginia Tech who gave their lives just one year prior to the pubHshing of 
this book. 

May this yearbool< be a reminder of the importance of your memories and relationships built at 
the University of Maryland, and how evil can so suddenly erase them. From a big scope, we are 
just thousands of little dots on campus; but magnify each other by pulling down your barriers 
and savoring encounters you've had with fellow students, whether it be the Terp who walked 
passed you on the way to class one day, the Terp who sat across from you at the diner, or the 
Terp who annoyed you in lecture hall by raising his hand all the time. 

THE TERRAPIN is on the dot to help create new memories and relationships each individual 
brings— even if it is only through the familiarity of photographs. To 2008!

The A. James Clark School of Engineering 
is not only one of the finest programs that the 
University of Maryland has to offer, but it is also 
one of the premiere engineering institutions ranked 
nationally and worldwide. 

Inside the incredible fourteen-floor 
building complex that makes up the A. James Clark 
School of Engineering, students and faculty engage 
in experimentation. Inside the Neutral Buoyancy 
Research Facility, scientists work toward the hopes 
of making space research easier and safer. In a 
building not too far away, the Glenn L. Martin 
Wind Tunnel makes it possible for scientists to test 
vehicles and aircrafts in winds up to 230 miles per 
hour. 




l:i\!OINI:l:RiN(> 



The Clark School is always looking to 
expand learning opportunities for its students and 
this year it has included the creation of a living- 
learning program entitled Women in Engineering, 
a 2-year process. This program allows both men 
and women to explore the ideas and issues that 
will further the pursuit of gender equality in the 
engineering world. 

Additionally, engineering students at the 
University of Maryland are breaking borders in 
their areas of study, literally. The Clark School's 
Engineers Without Borders chapter won two awards 
for their projects devoted to water supply and the 
wetlands of Brazil. Students also took second place 
in both the undergraduate and graduate divisions of 
a National Aeronautics and Space Administration 
(NASA) contest in which engineering students had 
the chance to present their ideas and innovations 
to their peers as well as NASA scientists.

Students who are not familiar 
with the College of Agriculture and 
Natural Resources (AGNR) may only 
recognize it for its ever popular Holy Cow, 
which rears its head on Maryland Day, or 
the stables located next to the Cambridge 
living community. However, students of 
AGNR are hard at work, and study more 
than the inner organs of a cow or how to 
clean out horse stables! 



Since the University of Maryland's 
establishment as a land grant institution 
in 1859, the College of Agriculture and 
Natural Resources has been making 
breakthroughs in the world of agriculture 
which includes the world of environmental 
issues and food industries. As agriculture 
is the leading industry in the State of 
Maryland, 14 percent of the work force 
is some how related to agriculture, it is 
necessary that our program remain strong 
and ever growing. 

Students in the College of 
Agriculture have resources at their 
fingertips such as the National Institutes 
of Health and the Food and Drug 
Administration. For the students devoted 
to studies of the environment, the 
Environmental Protection Agency is only 
a metro ride away. However, the college 
offers a wide range of majors outside the 
farm fields. Students may choose to major 
in pre-veterinary medicine, food and 
nutrition, and agricultural and resource 
management.

In the School of Architecture, Planning 
and Preservation, students recently used their 
creativity and innovation to compete in a U.S. 
Department of Energy- sponsored competition 
to build a house which conserves and reuses 
energy. The University of Maryland team, which 
has competed in the event for three consecutive 
years, constructed the "LEAFhouse" (Leading 
Everyone to an Abundant Future) which converts 
solar energy into reusable energy. 

Students of the School have endless 
resources at their disposal. The architecture 
building houses an architecture library, ranked 
among the nation's top architectural libraries, 
a woodwork and model-making shop, as well 
as a Kibel Gallery which serves to showcase 
the talents of students or to showcase exhibits 
on loan from such prestigious museums as the 
Building Museum in Washington, DC. 




AKCiii rm iiiu 



In addition, students are encouraged 
to get involved with the various student 
organizations associated with the School of 
Architecture. As a HiPO (Historical Preservation 
Organization) member, graduate students have 
the unique opportunity of attending site visits, 
listening to lectures, and socializing with faculty 
members and fellow peers. 

The SPA (Student Planning Association) 
is comprised of students working towards 
graduate degrees in the field of Community 
Planning. This Organization helps to bridge the 
gap between the world of students and the world 
of professionals. SPA representatives serve on 
the University of Maryland's Graduate Student 
Government and also send representatives to 
the American Planning Association's national 
conference each year.

actress, director and writer. Students will interact 
with Jones through her lectures and performances 
where she will discuss the role art can play in 
creating personal and social change. 

The School of Language, Literature, and 
Culture, the second largest unit in the School of 
Arts and Humanities, will give students the chance 
to learn about, and how to speak languages from 
all over the world, from Asia to the Middle East. 
In addition, students get the once in a lifetime 
opportunity to study abroad in cities such as 
Barcelona, Manheim and Tokyo. 

No matter your course of study, all 
students should take the opportunity to stretch 
their limbs and delve into the wonders of the arts 
and humanities!

While some Maryland Terrapins are interested 
in the world of Shakespeare, learning to speak Russian, 
or improving the world of mechanical engineering, 
other students' interests lie in riding the world of 
disease, slowing down the effects of global warming, or 
creating new advances in the world of dentistry. These 
students should run straight to the College of Chemical 
and Life Sciences to check out all that this college has 
to offer them. Students who pick a major within this 
college spend time in state-of-the-art laboratories and 
classrooms including the ones housed in the newly built 
Bioscience Research Building. 

In addition to the outstanding facilities, 
students have the chance to come in contact with leading 
scientists and doctors in the world of Chemical and 



CHIiAlil Al 



Life Science. One professor, Dr. David Mosser, recently 
founded the Maryland Pathogen Research Institute, an 
institute aimed at the study of infectious disease. Or, if 
lucky enough, students might get first hand instruction 
from Dr. lohn Dinman, who recently de-coded RNA 
which will assist in designing drug therapies that may 
target gene mutations. 

As if that were enough, the college works closely 
with some of the government's leading agencies of 
science and technology including the National Institutes 
of Health, The Food and Drug Administration, and the 
Goddard Space Flight Center to bring students the 
most up to date information on today's most innovative

Outside of the small College Park 
community, the world around us is rapidly 
advancing and we as humans must adapt quickly 
to these changes. It is in the College of Computer, 
Mathematical and Physical Sciences that all of 
these changes are being developed and cutting 
edge technology is being created. CMPS students 
never cease to amaze us as their names continue 
to pop-up in the headlines in major newspapers 
around the United States: Alumni Sergey Brin 
is a co-founder of Google and Paul Butler has 
discovered some of the first extra-solar planets. 

In CMPS, students have a wide array of 
topics and occupations to choose from. Some 
students may be gazing into space many light 
years from our planet earth and charting the stars 
that make up our vast solar system. However, 
other students may choose to stay a little closer to 
home and delve into our planet earth to discover 
the wonders of geology and the composition that 
makes up our planet. 

In all majors, students have rare 
opportunities to work with some of the top 
professors in their field to gain laboratory and 
real-life experience. No matter what fascinations 
one may have, from the exploration of quantum 
physics to the exploration of the human genome 
students' interests will never cease to be 
captivated.

The future teachers of America can 
be found on our own UM campus in the 
College of Education where students are 
busy being taught how to do the teaching 
to children of all ages and of all needs. 
While many education major graduates go 
on to become teachers at all levels, many 
students may choose to work in the fields of 
counseling, psychology or administration. 
In some cases, students may choose to 
specialize beyond the age range they wish to 
teach (early childhood, secondary education, 
etc) and become more skilled in a subject 
such as physical education, music education, 
or special education. Students also gain 
access to the world of teaching through the 
college's extensive outreach and student- 
teacher programs which places student in 
student-teaching positions to prepare them 
for the career ahead. 

Education majors have the unique 
opportunity to gain access and, many times, 
help to conduct research regarding minority 
achievement, urban education, and family 
and child relationships. Professors stay very 
acti\e on the research scene and receive 
grants from such major organizations as the 
US Department of Education, the National 
Science Foundation and the National 
Institute of Health to study such topics 
as, "Father Involvement in and Child Well 
Being in Latino Families" and "Markers and 
Modification of Early Reading Failure" to 
name a few.

Tlie world as we know it is filled with 
data and statistics; however, to organize and make 
something of it, we need information specialists. 
In the College of Information Studies (or CLIS 
as the natives call it), located in the South Wing 
of Hornbake Library, Masters Students and 
Doctoral Candidates are given the opportunity to 
work with and develop leading technology in the 
field of information studies. Recent research and 
projects have included developing technology to 
collect and interpret large volumes of text and 
speech in multiple languages. In a different lab, 
students researched how children who speak 
different languages can use the same digital 
resources in an online community. 

For students who aspire to be surrounded 
in the world of fantasy, science fiction and 



biographical books, getting a Masters in Library 
Science is the perfect fit. However, students who 
have a knack for history and enjoy hours spent at 
the National Archives should try their hand in 
the History and Library Science Program. PhD 
students have the opportunity to specialize in 
a particular area of expertise. These areas may 
include economics, linguistics, or literature. 

Of particular interest to some students 
may be the E-government concentration, which 
gives students the opportunity to study the way 
the internet effects the way the government 
distributes information. This concentration may 
focus on the role of the media online or the 
amount of engagement the government now has 
with its citizens due to the internet era.

Hidden in the far corner of the 
College Park campus sits the Robert H. 
Smith School of Business where students 
diligently work toward their pursuit 
of becoming CEOs of Fortune-500 
companies, buying stocks in New York's 
financial district or becoming hoteliers 
and citizens of the world. 

As a student of the business 
school, students must choose a specialty 
to study among fields such as Finance, 
Information Systems, Marketing, 
Accounting or International Business, 
among others. Business students are 
also encouraged to participate in several 
extracurricular business programs 
including Business Honors, Fellows 
Program and QUEST. 

In Business Honors, students 
with a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA 
gain access to outstanding resources 
and opportunities to participate in 
cutting edge business research including 
the opportunity to work with a faculty 
member on an original thesis. In addition, 



students graduate with honors chords. 

Fellows Program participants 
have the opportunity to participate in 
three tracks including Freshman Fellows, 
International Fellows or Junior/Senior 
Fellowship Program. As a Freshman Fellow, 
Smith students have the opportunity to 
attend social and networking events from 
their first days on campus. International 
Fellows have the option of majoring in 
both business and language, a skill vital 
in today's shrinking business world. As a 
Junior/Senior Fellow, students are given 
hands on training in the form of internships 
and hands-on laboratory activities. 

Finally, as a QUEST (Quality 
Enhancement Systems and Teams) 
participant, students undergo real-world 
projects and work with such prestigious 
companiesasPricewaterhouseCoopersover 
the course of three years. The latest QUEST 
team created The COMPOSTATION", an 
innovative way to encourage students to 
recycle and decompose food waste.

As the University of Maryland is only 
minutes away from our nation's capital and our 
leading policy makers, taking courses in the School 
of Public Policy seem well worth the while. Students 
wishing to earn a bachelor's degree in the public 
policy field must continue their studies and enter 
the joint bachelor's/masters program. Students will 
soon delve into the fascinating world of policy as it 
relates to the environment, budget and finance and 
international security, among other areas. 

In the Environmental Policy Program, 
students examine the ways in which policy makers 
can help e.xtinguish the problems that the world faces 
in terms of s^lobal warming, on both a national and 



international scale. Alumni of the Environmental 
Policy program have gone on to hold prestigious 
jobs in the US Environmental Protection Agency, 
the National Park Service, the World Bank, and the 
United Nations Development Program. 

As a student of the Social Policy Program, 
such controversial issues are examined as the 
No Child Left Behind Act and welfare reforms. 
Students who choose to Specialize in Public Policy 
may choose to deKe into the fields of criminal 
justice, po\ertv' or education. Graduates of this 
program are working in high places from the 
Department of Health and Human Services to the 
Fannie Mae Foundation.

camera in their lives. (Below) In fact, these young girls who were on their 

way to find husbands. After taking a photo of them, they had seen 

what they looked like for the very first time.

In order to reach the Hmong & Kamut Villages, Terps 
had to trek nearly 4,000 feet up into the mountains 
to reach them. Here are their experiences abroad... 



(Left) Terps try to solve a toothpick puzzle by 
candlelight in the Hmong & Kamut Village. The 
toothpicks depict a water buffalo, an animal that is 
sacred to their animist religion.

puppy, who is resting from playtime. These puppies 
will grow up to be watchdogs, in which each family 
home has. There was an abundance of wildlife and 
nature in the villages, including roosters, boars, 
chickens and turkeys.

^r ^^^ .REEK LIFE ^^^ ^^^^ \ 

^^^N Website: http://greek.iimd.edn ^^!a«««.i^«!^^^ | 

j^pi ) WHY GO GREEK? College students go Greek for a number of different reasons: Some do it for the 

^^.y^ lifelong friendships, for the leadership opportunities, or to make a huge campus seem just a little smaller. 

No matter what the reason, however, Greek life is a huge part of the University of Maryland. 



Step 1: Advertise 

Talk of rush and advertising for Greek life begins almost 
immediately upon returning to school. Sororities typically 
advertise by handing out flyers, candy or pens and setting up tents 
or chalking the sidewalks. 

Step 2: Meet Potential New Members 

Many sororities have 
"House Parties" or open 
house events which allow 
girls to come out, tour the 
houses and meet the sisters 
of prospective sororities. 
These parties are informal 
but often have cute themes, 
decorations and great food. 
Sisters get to know their 
potential family. 

Step 3: Bids! 

At the University of Maryland, chapter maximums are set at 95 
members, so fall sororities are allowed to give out as many bids 
as they'd like as long as they do not exceed this number. After 
meeting the potential new members for the fall and seeing who is 
interested in the chapter, each sorority hands out bids! 

Step 4: Bid Day 

Chapters inform girls whether or not they have received bids 
via telephone or by going to their dorms. Then, all of those who 
received bids accept them by going to the chapter house and being 
wi'lcoiTied by their new sisters on "bid day." 




Step 1: Sign Up 

Spring rush, also known as formal recruitment, is much more structured 
than the fall. Girls register for rush online to begin. 

Step 2: Rho Gamma Groups 

When rush begins, all of the potential members are broken up into smaller 
groups and assigned to a Rho Gamma. RG's are sisters in sororities who 
help educate and answer questions about Greek life, while keeping their 
affiliations secret to remain unbiased. 

Step 3: Meet the Chapters 

Once assigned to an RG, the potential new members are taken around 
to all 14 of the Pan-Hellenic Association recognized sorority chapters at 
UMD. Here, they get a feel for each chapter. 

Step 4: Narrow it Down 

After meeting all of the chapters, the girls meet with their RG's to rank 
their top 10 choices. It is a mutual selection process so the girls will travel 
back to however many of their top 10 chapters that invited them back. 
From there, the potential new members rank their top 6, then top 3, and 
finally they choose their #1. 

Step 5: Bid Day 

Potential new members meet 
with their RG one more time 
after ranking their top 3 houses, 
and attain envelopes containing 
whichever bid they received. That 
night, all of the new members go 
to the chapel, meet their new 
sisters, are given bid day shirts 
and then run from the chapel to 
their new chapter house and new sisters to take bid day pictures.

Step 1: Parties 

The first two weeks of each semester, fraternities throw 
parties in order to get their name out there and to meet 
potential new members for that semester. These "Rush 
Parties" are open to everyone and are the fraternities' 
main marl<eting events. 

Step 2: Brotherhood Events 

The rush parties are often very crowded so after meeting 
the potential new members, the chapters host various 
brotherhood events to get to know them better. This 
is usually a night out at a venue (i.e. Dave and Busters, 
ESPN Zone or dinner at nice restaurants). 

Step 3: Bids! 

Finally, after getting to know the potential new members 
and seeing who is interested in the fraternit)', the brothers 
give out bids. 

Step 4: Bid Day 

Similarly to sororities, fraternities inform their new 
members that they received bids by calling them and 
telling them the good news. 



Homecoming is a traditional week at the beginning of the academic 
school year where alumni return to campus and many activities are conducted. 
There are tailgates, a parade, numerous functions put together by the Alumni As- 
sociation and, of course, a Homecoming football game. Homecoming is a time to 
celebrate our school, athletics and most importantly, our alumni. Since Maryland 
has such a strong Greek community, sororities and fraternities also participate in 
welcoming their alumni and celebrating during this week. 

Each sorority pairs up with a fraternity during Homecoming week and 
competes in numerous Greek-planned Homecoming events. Based on the over- 
all theme, each sorority/fraternity pairing picks an original way to express that 
theme. 

Homecoming week begins with a Saturday of Service, then Olympics 
on the Row, Homecoming King & Queen, Sports Days, Skits, Homecoming Pa- 
rade, and ends with the Homecoming football game on the following Saturday. At 
the Rededication, which was held on October 25th, the winners of Homecoming 
Week are announced. Every chapter dresses up in pin attire and attends this cer- 
emony. The ceremony takes place in the chapel and two types of awards are dis- 
tributed. First off, the year's recipients of Order of Omega (a Greek Honor Society) 
are recognized in front of the entire community and given certificates. And lastly, 
the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall winners of Homecoming Week are announced! 
This year's winners were: 

1st Place: Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Nu 

2nd Place: Delta Phi Epsilon and Alpha Tau Omega 

3rd Place: Alpha Delta Pi, Delta Sigma Phi and Phi Psi

four sections of places to sit, with one main area and three smaller areas. 
The Diner also accepts meal points and is the choice place for students

sandwiches, hot sandwiches, grilled sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and all your 
desert needs, including University of Maryland's delicious home made 
ice cream, produced by the bakery staff of University Dining Services.

beats having a lot of variety all conveniently located in one place. 



The South Campus Diner is located near the North Hill and 
South Hill Communities and provides students living on South Campus

Campus Diner is typically populated with upperclassmen. The South 
Campus Diner accepts meal points and is a great place to eat, having a 
spacious interior separated into three sections, one main area and two 
smaller areas.

The Adele H. Stamp Student Union, 
named after University of Maryland's first Dean of 
Women is conveniently located at the center of the 
campus and it provides students with a variety of 
services. The Stamp Student Union is often a place 
to go for students looking for v^ays to get involved 
on campus and just as a way to relax between 
classes, especially for commuters, who see Stamp 
as a place to recharge and get food while waiting 
between classes. 

According to the website, the STAMP 
vision is "Transforming and enriching the 
Maryland experience" and the STAMP mission 
is "To create and sustain a student-centered 
environment that promotes academic success and 
personal development; serves as a safe and inviting 
campus center; and is characterized by a strong 
commitment to multiculturalism, excellence, and 
positive work environment." While this may seem 
like a daunting task, the services offered at Stamp 
falls nothing short of their goals. 

Entering Stamp, one is greeted with a 
service desk, a food court, and a colony ballroom 
that can be used for a variety of events, from job- 
fairs to concerts. Stamp is also the home of Hoff 
Theater in which everyone can take advantage of 
free movie screenings and comedy shows. Also 
located in Stamp is the student run entertainment 
club, SEE, which is short for Students 
Entertainment Events. This club organizes events 
from the Homecoming Comedy Show to the 
annual Art Attack spring concert. The Adele H. 
Stamp Student Union provides students with 
many services that help enrich their experience at 
the University of Maryland.

The Eppeley Recreation Center, recently renamed in 
honor of University of Maryland's own student-athlete, coach, 
and founder of the M Club, Geary Francis Eppley, is located on 
north campus between Cumberland and EUicot communities. 
The ERC includes the Outdoor Aquatic Center, Outdoor 
Recreation Center (complete with a rock climbing wall), and 
the Adventure Complex. 

Inside you will be immersed in a variety of fitness 
options ranging from anyone looking to take a Yoga class 
in the aerobics room or to practice their boxing skills in the 
martial arts room. The ERC consists of an indoor track, fitness 
room, weight rooms, martial arts room, table tennis facility, 
aerobics room, volleyball/basketball courts, racquetball and 
squash courts, an indoor pool with diving boards, saunas, 
locker/shower facilities, an equipment issue service, the 
Center for Health and Wellbeing, a Sneakers Cafe and lounge, 
and a member services desk. 

The ERC provides students and staff alike with a 
place to exercise or just as a way to get involved on campus as 
there are many programs offered at the ERC. It also provides 
job opportunities for students as many of the ERC staff are 
students. Anyone looking for a good workout can find it at 
the ERC, and many students consider it to be an essential 
part of their experience at the University of Maryland. The 
ERC not only contributes physically to the campus with its' 
state of the art facilities but it provides the community with 
a place to exercise, socialize, and have fun. The University 
of Maryland community would not be the same without the 
Eppley Recreation Center.

Sayings such as, "Fear the Turtle" and "Turtle Power" 
are common to fans of Maryland athletics. In 2006 Maryland 
women's basketball coach Brenda Frese coined another say- 
ing that seemed to become the theme of the Terrapin's men 
and women's soccer teams, "Overtime is Our Time." Several 
times this season for both soccer teams, at the end of the 
normal 90 minutes the game was still not over. Both the men 
and women had to push themselves, as well as their teams, to 
come out strong in order to capture the desired win. For the 
women overtime, seemed to take away the momentum the 
girls had. Although they had played hard the entire game, 
once overtime hit the usually could not pull through. One 



of the few times the girls did make overtime theirs, was in 
the final minute of overtime against Dartmouth when Nataly 
Arias kicked the game winning goal for our lady Terps. The 
men also encountered hardships when it came to overtime 
this season. Losing to Bradley in double overtime, as well as 
to Virginia, our men's soccer team constantly felt the pressure 
this year. After a remarkable season last year, the Terrapins 
worked hard to regain that momentum, during the game ; 
especially in overtime. Although both teams struggled 
season, each pushed through the hardships and showed tc 
remarkable individual players as well as respectfully, 
incredible teams.

Dedication, hard work and a lot of time is what constructs 
the core of the University's of Maryland's Men's and Women's 
Swimming and Diving Team. With two-a-day practices seven 
days a week that include swimming for 3 hours straight and 2 
hours in the weight room, or swimming for 5 hours in one day, 
these men and women know what is means to love your sport. 
They train hard in the pool and out of the pool with everything 
that they do and it shows. This season the members of the Ter- 
rapin Swimming and Diving team showed how strong they were 
when they came out with a win in their first meet against Hop- 
kins, both the men and women captured a win. The men's team 
then continued their strong season with a win against Duke, their 
first win in the ACC. Although the women came close, they were 
not able to follow the men's lead and unfortunately fell against 
Duke. They came back against Richmond later in the season pick- 
ing up another win for the team. With strong leadership in and 
out of the pool with Jarod Schroeder serving as the 2007- 2008 
interim swim coach, and Auburn Alumni Kevin Clements (1999 
National Championship winner) and Demerae Christianson as 
Assistant Coaches. With the high levels of commitment and hard 
work that these swimmers put in, it is clear that they make Mary- 
land proud.

You never stop learning. That is what we are told throughout our lives and 
it pertains to every area from academics to sports. The men's and women's tennis 
teams both had some learning to do this season, whether it was as a team or in an 
individual. The men's team was composed of many more mentors with half of the 
team being either a junior or a senior and the other half freshmen and sophomores. 
As a team the men were strong this season, coming out with a big 7-0 win over 
Georgetown in their first match. The learning that was going on for the mean came 
on an individual basis. Each upper classman took a younger player under their 
wing and began to teach them what they knew about college level tennis. For the 
women this season, however, the story was a little different. The women's team was 
composed of relatively young players including four freshmen, three sophomores, 
and only one junior. The women this season were more focused, therefore, on be- 
coming a team and learning together the ins and outs of college level tennis. Junior 
Michal Amir was key in the growth the each individual player, as well as the team, 
this season being the oldest, as well as a strong leader.

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS 

Rushing every game this year 
to lead his team, Keon Lattimore con- 
stantly made headlines for Maryland 
this season. Every year someone must 
step out on to the field and become 
the leader that everyone is looking for. 
With Ralph Friedgen bringing leader- 
ship to the team on the sidelines, but 
Steffy not stepping up on the field- 
Lattimore became the leader that the 
entire team was calling for. 

Rushing 111 yards against 
Florida International, 106 yards 
against Villanova, and 124 yards to 
help the Terrapins defeat number ten 
Rutgers, at the time, Lattimore was a 
key player this season. However for 
the Maryland Terrapins there always 
seems to be more than one athlete 
that embodies the characteristics 
required to be a leader and this year 
Quarterback Chris Turner was that 
player. Turner led the team to the 
Emerald Bowl versus Organ State, the 
fifth time in the last seven seasons the 
Terrapins had become bowl eligible. 
Turner came out huge against Rut- 
gers game when he led the team to 
20 points in the second half. He also 
teamed up with one of the Terrapin's 
leading receivers Darrius Heyward- 
Bey throughout the season to help 
lead Maryland to multiple key plays. 

From an 18-yard pass in the 
Rutgers game, to a 37 yard rush- 
ing play in the win against Boston 
College, to the opening pass and 
touchdown in the Emerald Bowl, the 
Turner, Heyward-Bey duo was a key 
component this season as well. With 
the strong leadership of Lattimore, 
Turner, and of course Friedgen, the 
Maryland Terrapins had an eventful, 
yet very exciting 2007 season.

Lacrosse, some say, was born in the state of Maryland. Most, 
however, know that the sport of lacrosse was really created by the Native 
Americans and is arguably one of the oldest sports in North America. Tra- 
ditionally lacrosse had many different purposes including conflict reso- 
lution and training of young warriors where often players were gravely 
injured or even killed. Lacrosse became a sport of hard working warriors 
and today this still define the men and women athletes who make the Uni- 
versity of Maryland proud as our hard-working lacrosse players. 

Both teams this 2008 season had key players that helped to hold 
the lacrosse program at the University of Maryland one of the best in the 
world. On the men's team we had Freshmen Grant Catahno who had a 
cannon for a shot and Freshman Travis Reed who was a sneaky scorer in a 
split second. The notorious defense at Maryland this year was was overall 
solid once again. And finally with the return of defense middie Jeff Reyn- 
olds, who can match- up with an opposing attackman straight up, the men 
had a great season. 

Our lady Terps, however, also had key players that made their sea- 
son a breeze. With Seniors Dana Dobbie and Kelly Kasper who were both 
recognized as two of the top 20 players in the country by Inside Lacrosse, 
with Dobbie as the No. 3 player in the country and Kasper at No. 7, the 
Terrapins had strong leaders. And with both of these girls named tri-cap- 
tains for the 2008 season along with teammate Katie Pumphrey it is no 
wonder why the girls where strong and in control this season.

After winning nineteen games straight it 
seemed as though our lady Terps were unstoppable. 
Not only were the girls winning, but they were shutting 
teams completely out with scores like 5-0 versus Central 
Michigan, 6-0 versus Northeastern, and 7-0 versus Del- 
aware. Ranked #2 in the NCAA when they walked onto 
the field to play #1 UNC at Chapel Hill, the girls were 
ready to continue their winning streak. Unfortunately, 
this proved to be tough goal for the girls. With a final 
score of 3-0 the team walked off disappointed, but de- 
termined to make it all the way still. It seemed as though 
they could do it when they won their next game against 
Villanova, with a score of 5-1, but sadly our lady Terps 
fell early in the NCAA Tournament when they lost to 
Penn State in the first game with a close score of 1-0. 

The ladies of the University of Maryland Field 
Hockey team, however, proved this year that although 
your season may not be perfect, the team itself can be 
outstanding. When seven girls were selected by the Na- 
tional Field Hockey Coaches Association to play for the 
Mid-Atlantic All-Regional team and five of those girls 
selected to the first team (Seniors Kathryn Masson 
and Janneke van Leeuwen, junior Susie Rowe, sopho- 
more Nicole Muracco and freshman Katie O'Donnell), 
four players named to the All American Squad (Kath- 
ryn Masson, Katie O'Donnell, Susie Rowe, and Janneke 
van Leeuwen), and having Coach Missy Meharg named 
Coach of the Year for the 11th time, this team demon- 
strated the true meaning of hard work and victory this 
2007 season.

Open up strong and stay strong seemed to be the advice 
that the girls on Maryland's volleyball team took to heart this 
season. With their coach Janice Kruger stressing the importance 
of an early win, the girls came out on the first of September with 
a win against South Carolina. The girls began to grow from this 
point, learning more with every win, as well as every loss. Even- 
tually the ladies began to see less of those losing games, taking 
the idea to stay strong literally coming through with a winning 
season for Maryland. After opening the season with five straight 
wins at the VCU Invitational, the ladies kept up the winning spir- 
it and began to empower each other. With excellent players like 
Jade Brown, Ashley Hogan, Katie Usher, Michelle Kenning, and 
Senior Beth Gillming, the Terrapins left no question this season 
that they were ready to dominate. After continuing to win with 
only a few upsets in between, the girls ended on a high. The team 
continues to achieve great things even off the court with players 
like Beth Gillming who was selected as an ESPN Magazine First- 
Team Academic All-District performer in the District 2 Univer- 
sity Division, as an elementary education major, Gillming carried 
a 3.72 GPA. With every direction covered this team of lady Ter- 
rapins represented Maryland well this year on the court and in 
the classroom.

"The Year of the Turtle" read the April 2002 headline in the Washington Post The University of Maryland's Men's Bas- 
ketball Team had just won their first ever National Championship. Four years later it was the women's turn, with an exciting 
2006 win over the Blue Devils in 2006 our lady Terps also became national champions. This past 2007- 2008 season proved to 
be another "Year of the Turtle" for both the men's and women's basketball teams. 

Although the men's team had a slow start to their 2007- 2008 season with losses against Boston College, American, 
Virginia Tech and Ohio, once it came time for their ACC games the men began to somehow almost always find a way to win. 
When famous number 50 Bambale Osby, better known as "Boom," scored the last two points against UNC for a thrilling 82-80 
win over the Tarheels, Gary Williams' team knew this could very well be their year. 

Our lady Terps, on the other hand, came out on top from the very beginning of the season. Even with their tough 
schedule the girls were on a streak of winning games and breaking records. Whether in double overtime, with a 3-point shot 
by Krisit Toliver, or a drive by Marissa Coleman, the girls always seemed to come out on top. And with four returning starters 
like Crystal Langhorn, who broke Maryland's all-time rebounding record this season as well as many scoring records, it is no 
wonder these ladies dominated the court this year. Once they beat Duke at home for the first time in ten years this season, the 
ladies know this was defiantly their year, the school's year, the "Year of the Turtle," had returned.

With three ACC wrestlers of the week and an on going 
winning streak the wrestling team at the University of Mary- 
land began to make a comeback this season. The team had 
a slow start this season with two losses against Edinboro at 
the Fighting Scot Duals and at their next match against Penn 
State. However, the team began to quickly turn their season 
around. After a perfect 3-0 showing at the Fighting Scot Duals 
in Edinboro, Sophomore Mike Letts was named the first ACC 
Wrestler of the Week for the 2007-08 season. With Letts lead- 
ing the team the Terps came out to place 3rd in the Body Bar 
Systems Invitational and then continued on a winning streak 
beating Michigan, Application State, Lehigh, Riders, Rutgers, 
Navy and North Carolina with only one loss against Central 
Michigan. The team also continued to make leaders this sea- 
son as two more men where given the honor of ACC wres- 




tler of the week. After the team competed at the Body Bar 
Systems Invitational at Cornell, Red shirt junior Josh Haines 
was named the ACC Wrestler of the Week since he went 
an amazing 4-0 as well as captured the 184-pound champi- 
onship title. When wrestler Hudson Taylor dominated the 
competition at the Northeast Duals he was also named the 
ACC Wrestler of the Week since he went 3-0 in his matches 
with three falls. Taylor was again named ACC Wrestler of 
the Week two more times when he went 8-0 for his matches 
in December and again since he had 2 crucial pins. With 
leaders like Taylor, Letts, and Haines as well as strong team 
mates, it is no wonder that the wrestling team at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland has made a very strong comeback sine 
beginning of their season.

It was a nice, sunny day in Boca Raton, FL where the University of Maryland Lady Terps Softball team started out their 
season. With Meaghan Booth on base, and the lady Terps already up one to nothing, in the ninth inning during the first game of 
the girl's season a strong hit was made for the Terrapins. This allowed Booth to score and UMD to defeat number 12- ranked, at 
the time, Michigan. In the girls next game against UMASS, the Softball team played hard and came together again for another 
great win, 2-1. Thus the ladies of Maryland softball started their season 2-0 for the first time in school history. 

Setting new records and breaking old ways, the lady Terps came out the past season and played hard. Just like their two 
opening games in Florida this team held nothing back this 2008 season. As their coach Laura Watten went into her third season 
has the head coach, she could finally see the team coming together and playing an amazing game. Utilizing everything from their^ 
tremendous athletic ability to each players ability to read the field well, the lady Terps came out huge this year and have a lot tc 
show for it.

The word gold to most holds the meaning of some- 
thing great, as in if something is referred to as being golden 
it is seen bright, precious, and superior to others in the same 
grouping. Gold is the word that defines the Men and Women's 
Cross Country team at College Park. These individuals have 
been superior to other collegiate runners this past season. 
The teams holds superior leaders such as Meghan Braffet and 
Greg Kelsey, and holds first place finishes. A gold medalist 
from the Olympic games himself, Andrew Valmon leads these 
teams as Head Coach. Throughout the season Braffet and 
Kelsey came through for the Maryland Cross Country team as 
in the NCAA Regionals, for example. Meghan Braffet placed 
17th overall to at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Champi- 
onships hosted by Lehigh University helping both the men's 
and women's team each improve their team standings from 
last season with both Braffet and Kelsey also earning All-Re- 
gion honors. The team did well this season too with a first 
place finish at the Leopard Invitational and very strong stand- 
ings at the Mt. St. Mary's Invitational to open the season. 

One the most interesting things about this team how- 
ever, is the fact that they have a gold medalist as a leader, men- 
tor and the head coach. Coach Valmon has been coaching the 
Terrapins for five seasons now and as part of the U.S. 4x400- 
meter relay teams at both the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games 



he won a gold medal. With each runner at Maryland learning 
from an athlete that has been so accomplished in his life time, it 
is no wonder that these athletes are so superior and just seem to 
keep improving. 

Between the sprinting, middle distance, long distance, 
hurdling, relays, road- running, race-walking, shot put, ham- 
mer, javelin, discus throw, high, long, and triple jump, pole vault, 
standing high, long, and triple jump, pentathlon, heptathlon fi- 
nally decathlon, track and field is one of the most athletic sports 
there is. With athletes being able to do a wide variet)' of any of 
these events, this sport calls for dedication and superb athleti- 
cism. Those at the University of Maryland bring those qualities 
to the table when they compete for the Terps. With sportsmen 
such as Toni Aluko, Ashley Carbray, Tiffani Long, Earl Gray, 
and Katelyn Poss it is no wonder the track and field team have an 
excellent year. At the Thomas Invitational, the Terps had a five 
first place finishes along with many others finishing in the top 
ten. To show just how great this team did this season one needs 
to look no further than their first event, the Penn State National 
Open. Here executing for the Terps, at their highest level of 
performance, was Zach Martinez and Tommy Friscia who both 
posted career-best and IC4A-qualifying times. This event here 
started to define the 2007-2008 season for this team.

Holding their heads high and standing strong, 
the varsity Women's Water Polo team is unique at the 
University of Maryland. As a fairly new varsity sport 
here at UMD, they are the only varsity sport that has a 
women's team that is considered Division I varsity, and 
does not have a men's team. The women on this team 
work hard to prove themselves, not only to their com- 
petitors, but also to those who don't believe in them. 
This past 2008 season Coach Salyer saw early on as a 
break-out season for the team. With juniors that just 
got better and better with every game played, to the 
freshmen that caught on quickly to the world of college 
level water polo, this team came out strong and stayed 
strong. 

A key part of the success the girls had this sea- 
son was the ability for the juniors and freshmen to blend 
together as one. Teamwork is a quality everyone needs 
to have and these girls showed that they could do it, in 
and out of the water. With the juniors taking the fresh- 
men under their wing, but at the same time treating 
them as team-mates, Coach Salyer saw the girls become 
one unit. When they went to San Diego, for example, for 
their first game, everyone could see that the girls stuck 
to their game plan, stayed aggressive, attacked, play hard 
and most importantly played as one.

After a 2007 season that was plagued by 
injuries and bad luck, the girls on the 2008 gym- 
nastics team at the University of Maryland came 
out with their heads held high and a mind-set of 
determination. Ready to prove that they are one of 
the best and determined to take the lessons each 
learned last year and put it into action, the girls 
were ready to come out strong. The team consist- 
ed of two seniors, one junior, six sophomores, and 
five freshmen as well as the tri-captains, Gretchen 
Kittelberger, Lindsey Bonomo and Kelsey Nel- 
ligan, which lead the team this season. With the 
team being so young, each athlete was looking to 
grow this season, while at the same time showing 
the world of gymnastics what they were already 
made of. 

For example, Sophomore Brandi George 
had an amazing freshman season as she was 
named Reigning EAGL Rookie of the Year, quali- 
fied individually to the 2007 NCAA Southeast 
Regional Championships, was named to first 
team AU-EAGL in the balance beam, floor exer- 
cise and all-around and also earned second team 
All-EAGL honors on the vault. Although the girls 
did not have a strong showing in the beginning of 
the season, opening with tw'o losses at home, each 
match was much closer then the simple letter L 
could show. When the girls placed 2nd out of four 
teams in the Texas Woman's with Denver and Air 
Force Meet, everyone began to see that determi- 
nation that defined this 2008 season.

A new series of articles the athletic department de- 
cided to feature this year was entitled "A Day in the Life..." 
These where a series of articles throughout the season where 
freshmen on the Competitive Cheerleading team reflected 
about the team as well as the personal experiences each 
girl was having at UMD. These articles reflected the more 
than just the opinions of a few freshmen, but the opinions 
and demographic of a winning team at the University of 
Maryland. The competitive cheer team was compromised 
of many fresh faces this season with some girls practically 
moving across the country to be part of such a successful 
group. The freshmen on the team brought new ideas and 
talent to a team with many junior and senior mentors who 
took each lady by the hand and welcomed them onto the 
team. The strong connection that the girls made with one 
another was defiantly key to the achievements this team has 
had in the past couple years and a tradition of success that 
the girls continued with this year. With each team-mate 
coming from such a diverse areas including everywhere 
from Maryland to Texas, the bonds they made where very 
important as was the commitment each of these athletes 
has for this sport, no doubt made the Competitive Cheer- 
leading team strong this 2008 season.
