When you're little and you first start school, college 
seems too far away to even innagine. Then elementary 
school, middle school and high school fly by and eventu- 
ally you're in college. College graduation is the final step 
on the path to the "real world." After college, you can go 
wherever you want, do whatever you want, be whoever 
you want. College, in a sense, is the final piece of the

space engineering, bioengineering, biological resources engineering, 
chemical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electric 
and computer engineering, fire protection engineering, materials sci- 
ence and engineering and mechanical engineering. 

"Honestly, I think the engineering school is really difficult. Though 
difficult, there is nothing more rewarding than solving that difficult 
problem or working with your group to finish an end goal or produc- 
ing a product," Elizabeth Kim, a senior bioengineering major, said. 
"Being a student at this school has taught me how to work through 
the night and work harder than I ever have had to work before in my

The College of Education houses seven programs: counseling 
and personnel services; curriculum and instruction; education poli- 
cy studies; education leadership, higher education and international 
education; human development; measurement, statistics and evalu- 
ation; and special education. Students in this college are prepared to 
become teachers, researchers and counselors. The College of Edu- 
cation's programs are consistently ranked highly, with the counseling 
and personnel studies department being ranked number one nation- 
ally for the past decade. 

The college is housed in the Benjamin Building, which was built 
in 1965 and named for Harold R. W. Benjamin, who served as the 
college's dean from 1938-1943 and again from 1947 to 1952. Ben- 
jamin's time away from the university was spent serving the United 
States military during World War II. In May 2008, Dr. Donna L. Wise- 
man, Ph.D., became dean of the college, after serving as interim 
dean for the previous school year. 

During the early years of the University of Maryland (then known 
as the Maryland Agricultural College), the College of Education's fo- 
cus was on preparing future teachers from agricultural areas. As the 
university grew, the college placed a larger emphasis on research. 
Over the years, the college reflected the changing times. 

Today, the College of Education prepares its students for ca- 
reers related to the field of education in areas dealing with policy, 
research, counseling, development and classroom instruction.

The College of Information Studies, or the iSchool as it is some- 
times called, caters to graduate students at the University of Mary- 
land and prepares graduates for careers related to information ac- 
quisition. The college has several highly-ranked programs: the library 
science department is ranked 10th in the nation by U.S. News and 
World Report. The College of Information Studies is dedicated to the 
study of information and how it can become more accessible to ev- 
eryone. As they say, information is power and the iSchool works to 
ensure that more people have access to that power. 

The college is very involved with research. Currently, students 
in the college have the opportunity to study a wide variety of issues 
that are of importance to those in the information community: com- 
puter use in public libraries; how children access and use digital 
books, particularly texts from different cultures; how children perform 
searches on the Internet; and many more. This wide variety of re- 
search projects illustrates the broad impact and the importance of 
the information field. 

Information is vital to our fast-paced, technology-driven world. 
The iSchool ensures that there is some equality in terms of informa- 
tion access and that those who wish to obtain information can do so. 
The college prepares its graduates to offer equal information access 
to different types of people, from those who are well-versed in the art 
of archival finding keys, to those who require assistance in order to 
access the Internet. 








The old journalism building (above) and the construction on 
the new building, Knight Hall (right). 


students in the Philip Merrill College of Journalism study major 
news sources and prepare for careers in the field. Students can opt 
to focus on broadcast, print or online journalism. Students in the print 
track have access to faculty with an extraordinary amount of experi- 
ence. Those who favor broadcast journalism have the opportunity to 
work and learn at UMTV, the university's cable channel. In the online 
program, students take Capstone courses that allow them to spend 
a semester involved in a multimedia news environment. 

The Merrill College began as the journalism department in 1 945. 
Graduates have held positions at The Washington Post, USA Today, 
The Houston Chronicle and The (Baltimore) Evening Sun. Others 
have worked at CNN and on The Today Show. Currently, the college 
is anticipating the opening of its new building, Knight Hall. 

The average journalism student must have about 42 credit hours 
of journalism courses. The rest of his or her time is spent study- 
ing other fields related to a career in journalism. This wide exposure 
ensures that the graduates from this college have the backgrounds 
necessary in order to understand and analyze major events. 

It is no secret that the newspaper industry has been especially 
hard-hit by the economic downturn, but print journalism had already 
begun to decrease in terms of profitability before the recession be- 
gan. Because of this, the Merrill College has had to prepare its stu- 
dents for a particularly competitive job environment.

The Robert H. Smith School of Business prepares students for 
careers in the rapidly changing business sector. The advent of glo- 
balization and an increasingly technology-centered world have cre- 
ated the need for business professionals with an ability to think out- 
side of the box. The movers and shakers of today's business world 
face a unique set of challenges: an unfavorable economy, the break- 
ing down of trade barriers as globalization becomes an increasingly 
important force and the centrality of technological innovation. The 
Smith School of Business ensures that students can fulfill all of these 
tedious challenges. 

The nationally renowned program — ranked 16th in the nation 
by the U.S. News and World Report — brings a unique approach 
to undergraduate education. Creativity is key; for a unique problem, 
one must have a unique solution. The school also takes advantage 
of its prime location just outside of the nation's capital. 

In 1921, the first formal business curriculum was established at 
the University of Maryland and enrollment in the program reached 
394. Throughout the school's history, its name was changed many 
times before it became the Robert H. Smith School in 1998 follow- 
ing a $15 million endowment gift from Robert H. Smith, who gradu- 
ated from the university in 1950. Since the late 1990s, six new re- 
search centers have been established. Graduates from the school 
are equipped with a high-quality education that emphasizes creativity 
and they are uniquely prepared for careers in the business sector.

The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation is com- 
posed of four disciplines: architecture, urban planning, historic pres- 
ervation and real estate development. The school offers an under- 
graduate degree in architecture and graduate programs in all four 

As they say in real estate, location is key. This is fortunate for 
the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, as the Uni- 
versity of Maryland's location just outside Washington, D.C. allows 
students opportunities to study the city's architectural achievements, 
investigate major communities planned in the middle of the 20th cen- 
tury (Greenbelt, Reston, etc.) and explore old properties near the 
campus in order to understand the realities of historic preservation. 

The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation ranks 
high in major competitions. In 2007, the University of Maryland built 
LEAFHouse, which received first place nationally and second place 
overall at the Solar Decathlon competition, sponsored by the U.S. 
Department of Energy. The concepts developed by the team led by 
the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation are being used 
by a Massachusetts company to make energy efficient houses for 
families across the nation. 

Founded in 1967, the school is dedicated to studying the built 
environment. Its focus on physical surroundings also emphasizes a 
range of major issues in contemporary America.

Inside one of the gyms in the School of Public Health 





The School of Public Health conducts research and instructs 
students on how to respond to public health needs. This field has 
been of increasing concern in the recent years due to a shortage 
of health workers and the prominence of major health threats, such 
as HIV/AIDS, H1N1 (the "swine flu") and other epidemics. Maryland 
is a state rife with public health issues. It is ranked high in terms of 
cancer mortality, teen birth rates, heart disease, child death rates 
and stroke mortality. This means that those enrolled in the School of 
Public Health have a plethora of job opportunities, including many 
opportunities for research. 

The school houses several departments: epidemiology and bio- 
statistics, family science, health services administration, kinesiology, 
the Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health and public 
and community health. Students study all aspects of public health, 
from epidemics to the logistics of providing health services. 

Students in the School of Public Health study social necessi- 
ties for good health in the aggregate, as well as how a society can 
ensure that individual members are healthy. The school was recent- 
ly charged with creating a public health institution on the campus, 
which resulted in widespread changes. The School of Public Health 
is dedicated to the study of preserving and prolonging lives that are 
often unnecessarily lost to preventable illnesses and injuries and es- 
sentially ensuring that people have the opportunity to be healthy.

The School of Public Policy offers educational programs for stu- 
dents who wish to pursue careers involving policy analysis, manage- 
ment and leadership. Students in the school select an area of con- 
centration from several options: environmental policy, international 
security and economic policy, social policy, or management, finance 
and leadership. Although the primary focus of this school is on gradu- 
ate and doctoral students, undergraduate students also have the op- 
portunity to take courses in these departments. The school offers a 
five-year Bachelor's/Master's program that allows accepted students 
to start taking graduate-level courses in their senior year of under- 
graduate course work so that they may graduate with both an under- 
graduate and a graduate degree in only five years. Qualified under- 
graduates are given the opportunity to take courses in the School of 
Public Policy curriculum and count them toward their undergraduate 

Students in the School of Public Policy study all aspects of pol- 
icy. Research topics run the gamut from environmental research to 
philosophy's relationship with policy, to the interplay between eco- 
nomics and crime. The University of Maryland's proximity to Wash- 
ington, D.C. ensures that students in the School of Public Policy have 
access to nonprofit organizations, international organizations and 
federal government institutions. The School of Public Policy gives its 
students the tools necessary to understand, analyze and shape the 
policies that govern social health levels.

Within the seven vast floors of McKeldin Library are scores of 
University of Maryland students who spend their time researching, 
studying and learning. Each floor is packed to the brinn with books 
on every subject, available for loan to any student. 

The first floor is home to the Footnotes Cafe, a shop that 
serves Starbucks coffee, tea and snacks. Outside the cafe is an 
eat-in lounge, where students gather to study while sipping on their 
caramel macchiatos. 

The East Asia Collection on the fourth floor is a popular lo- 
cation to study. There is a designated reading room and a place 
for group study. Other useful study spots include the group study 
rooms on the second floor, along with the quiet and empty sixth 
and seventh floors. 

For those cramming for their next big midterm, McKeldin of- 
fers a Late Night Study program. The first two floors of the library 
are open all night, accessible only by a student's swipe card. The 
library itself is closed, but services like group study rooms, com- 
puters and photocopiers are available. 

Book authors also frequent the library to discuss their latest 
works. These events are open to the public, and have included 
John W. Frece speaking about his book "Sprawl and Politics: The 
Inside Story of Smart Growth in Maryland" and Dr. Anil K. Gupta 
talking about his book, "Getting China and India Right," which was 
coauthored with Haiyan Wang. 

Sitting proudly outside McKeldin is a statue of Testudo, the 
university's mascot. Students rub his nose for good luck before a 
big test and often leave the statue offerings during finals week.

Swine '09: The H1 N1 virus hit the University of iVIaryland early 
in the school year, infecting hundreds of students across the cam- 
pus. The highly infectious disease spread rapidly through campus, 
causing sick students to flood the Health Center. More than 800 
possible cases were reported as of the end of October, according 
to Vice President for Student Affairs Linda Clement. The number of 
patients per day peaked Sept. 11 with 91 reported cases. 

The Health Center's waiting rooms were packed during the 
outbreak, filled with coughing, nauseous students equipped with a 
face mask and water provided by the center. 

Heath Center employees worked extra hours to accommodate 
the influx of students. Nasal flu tests were administered to students 
to determine if they were indeed sick. 

Students were instructed by the university to wash their hands 
frequently and to cover their mouth while coughing or sneezing. The 
Health Center recommended staying away from crowded parties 
and avoiding people already infected. Those with the flu were ad- 
vised to stay home. Many sick students stayed in their dorm rooms, 
informally quarantined from healthy students. 

As of November, swine flu vaccines were made available 
through the Health Center. The university received 1,000 single 
dose vaccinations. The shot was free to students. 







Looking to have fun without leaving the campus? Look no fur- 
ther than TerpZone, located in the basement of the Stamp Student 

TerpZone offers a total of 1 billiard tables, eight bowling lanes, 
a video arcade and three big-screen televisions in a lounge to the 
side of the facility. Students are invited to mill around TerpZone and 
enjoy some free time in between studying for exams and doing 
homework. Hungry players can grab a bite to eat at Subway near 
the pool tables. 

"I really like the people and the management," said Kemi 
Lawoyin, a criminal justice major and TerpZone employee. "They're 
extremely cool. I've met so many people and built new relation- 
ships since I've been working here." 

TerpZone offers cosmic bowling from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday 
and Saturday nights. The popular event is complete with disco 
lights, fog machines and pumping music. Prizes are awarded to 
players who knock down the colored pins. 

TerpZone is open every day. Prices to use the facilities are 
cheap: all costs are under $5. 




Looking to get away? Thousands of University of Maryland 
students do just that, traveling to places like Rome, London and 

Students can travel through the university or transfer credits 
from another college. The university currently offers study abroad 
programs in England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Israel and 
China. Students can also enroll at one of the university's partner 
schools to receive credits transferable to UMD. 

Students in the program laud the time spent in foreign coun- 
tries and the chance to explore a culture other than their own. "I've 
studied abroad in India, China, the French Caribbean and I'm go- 
ing to Peru," said Shelly Cox, a senior biological sciences major. "I 
really enjoyed every opportunity I've had to study abroad, because 
each time I experienced something different that I wouldn't have 
experienced had I stayed in the United States." 

The program's office is based in Holzapfel Hall. The chance 
to study abroad is offered to students of all majors. Before a stu- 
dent travels, academic advisors in the student's department en- 
sure that the student is able to take classes that will count toward 
their degree. Those in the program take a normal course load while 
abroad, often studying topics related to their country of choice. 

Students can travel for a semester or an entire year, or limit 
their program to winter, spring or summer break by participating in 
what are called short-term programs. 

Admission to the various programs is determined through an 
application process. Applications are due the semester before the 
student plans to study abroad. Financial aid and scholarships are 
available for those who qualify. 

There are some restrictions on when a student can go abroad: 
Students must complete their last 30 credits at the University of 
Maryland and students must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA before 
they go abroad.

Beyond the Classroom is a two-semester living-learning pro- 
gram based on current civic issues. The program culminates with 
an internship at a non-profit organization during the student's sec- 
ond semester after taking comprehensive classes on civic engage- 

Those enrolled in the program must complete two seminars 
based on civic engagement and social justice. The classes are 
offered through Beyond the Classroom, which is based in South 
Campus Commons Building 1. 

The program is only offered to sophomores, juniors and se- 
niors through an application process. Students can begin applying 
as early as the semester in which they will complete 30 credits. 

Beyond the Classroom is different than other living-learning 
programs. Instead of smoothing the transition between high school 
and college, the program helps students to transition between col- 
lege and their careers. 

Students in Beyond the Classroom attend lectures and field 
trips in addition to their classes. A documentary and film series is 
also offered through the program. Recent events include "An Eve- 
ning with David Allen Harris: Using Dance and Movement Therapy 
to Heal African Child Survivors of War" and "Promoting True Peace 
and Partnerships in Afhca -The International Campaign to Resist 

After graduating from the program, students are left with a 
sense of civic duty and responsibility. Over the course of the pro- 
gram they will have developed a portfolio of a resume, cover letter 
and work experience. 

"The program is so great because of its distinctiveness from 
the other classes which I have taken," said Josh Gillerman, a se- 
nior in the program. "Beyond the Classroom is not just a catchy 
title— it refers to the onus one has once they enter the program to 
dedicate themselves to a real cause outside of the class. Beyond 
the Classroom has helped define my college experience, and will 
no doubt continue to define my future aspirations." 




CIVICUS is a two-year living-learning program offered by the 
College of Behavioral and Social Sciences for students interested 
in civic leadership and community service. Incoming freshmen are 
invited to the program based on their application essays, letters of 
recommendation and activities while in high school. 

The program, which began in the fall of 1999, prides itself 
on making the campus feel smaller and more intimate. CIVICUS 
students live together in Somerset Hall on North Hill and take 14 
credits chosen by the program. Classes range from "Introduction 
to Social Problems" to "Leadership in a Multicultural Society" and 
are taken in addition to a regular course load for the students' ma- 
jor. CIVICUS revolves around citizenship, leadership, community 
building in a diverse society, scholarship and community service. 

CIVICUS students are not required to choose a major within 
the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Students' majors 
reach across all academic disciplines, leading to diverse viewpoints 
on civic issues. 

Students are required to participate in four or more commu- 
nity service projects each semester, like mentoring elementary 
school children in Langley Park or Habitat for Humanity. Students 
can complete these service projects either on the campus or in ar- 
eas surrounding the campus. 

The final project completed by CIVICUS students in their 
sophomore year is a capstone project. Students must complete 
an internship, community service project or a research project, ac- 
cording to the course description. 

"It's a very close family that you develop that helps you in 
coming to the university," said Candy Brotz, a senior psychology 
major. "The program helps you foster leadership skills and see 
things through a new perspective." 



The College Park Scholars are highly intellectual students 
grouped into different fields of study. They reside in the Cambridge 

There are 14 groups within the living-learning program: Ad- 
vocates for Children; Arts; Business, Society and the Economy; 
Cultures of the Americas; Earth, Life and Time; Environment, Tech- 
nology and Economy; International Studies; Life Sciences; Media, 
Self and Society; Public Leadership; Science and Global Change; 
Science, Discovery and the Universe; and Science, Technology 
and Society. 

The program, which launched in 1994, is limited to freshmen 
and sophomores. There is no application process; instead, about 
75 incoming freshmen are invited to the select program. 

Students in the Scholars program take courses related to their 
major and a class specifically designed for their group. There are 
specific dormitories on campus that house students in the program. 
Each group has a specific floor in a residence hall, which students 
share with others in their program. 

Within the Cambridge Community is the Cambridge Commu- 
nity Center, a building specifically designed for the scholars. There 
are three "technology classrooms" in the Community Center, which 
support classes held in the building. Scholars can also use the cen- 
ter as a quiet study site. 

Attached to the Cambridge Community Center is the North 
Campus Snack 'n' Shop, a mini convenience store designed for 
students. The shop accepts money or "Terp Bucks." Groceries, 
school supplies and health and beauty supplies are all sold in the

Digital Cultures and Creativity is a program coordinated through 
the university's Honors College. According to its website, students 
in Digital Cultures and Creativity "explore new media technologies 
through activities as varied as digital music and video production, 
digital art, creative electronic writing, virtual worlds, software de- 
velopment and entrepreneurship and developing online communi- 

This living-learning program is for freshman and sophomore 
students. Students take 1 6 credits for the program throughout those 
two years, and a practicum that culminates in a research project or 
major creative effort, according to the website. Ten of the 1 6 credits 
are specific to the program, while the remaining six count toward 
CORE requirements. 

Students participating in Digital Cultures and Creativity live 
and learn with the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humani- 
ties (MITH). 

Dr. Matthew Kirschenbaum directs the program and Dr. Tanya 
Clement is the associate director. 



University of Maryland's EcoHouse is a one-year living-learn- 
ing program focused on green living and academics. Students live 
together in New Leonardtown, working together to find new ideas 
for an eco-friendly lifestyle. 

The program is sponsored by the College of Agriculture and 
Natural Resources and its Department of Environmental Science 
and Technology. Students living in the EcoHouse complete up to 
two credits every semester in the department of Environmental Sci- 
ence and Policy. 

Field trips are included in the curriculum, as well as occa- 
sional weekend trips. Past trips include a visit to Fox Island on the 
Chesapeake Bay and a canoe tour and clean-up of the Anacostia 
River. Internships are expected of EcoHouse students, along with 
participation in a service or leadership activity every month. 

While New Leonardtown is not a green building, it is equipped 
with low-flow showerheads and energy meters to measure the 
amount of electricity used by the residents. Students also work in 
an organic garden outside the building. 

Students in all majors can apply by submitting a personal 
statement and resume. Candidates are chosen by a panel consist- 
ing of both faculty and students. 

The program prides itself on a multi-disciplinary approach to 
solving ecological problems: students from all academic and per- 
sonal backgrounds are enrolled in the program. The main goal of 
EcoHouse is to promote environmental sustainability and every 
year they work with the faculty to develop course syllabi for the 

"We learned a lot hands-on about environmental issues." said 
Shari Rosenberg, a natural resources management major. "It's 
comprehensive: from classmates, teachers and the field trips. It 
was a lot of good experience." 


The Entrepreneurship and Innovation living-learning program 
will be launched in the fall of 201 by the Maryland Technology En- 
terprise Institute. 

The program "provides entrepreneurially-minded freshmen 
and sophomores from all majors the opportunity to learn and live 
entrepreneurship and innovation," according to its website. In the 
program, students will form teams to develop an idea and write a 
product plan. 

Like with other living-learning programs, for both years of En- 
trepreneurship and Innovation, participating students will live with 
other students in the program. 

The program is one of several living-learning programs as- 
sociated with the university's Honors College. New first-year ap- 
plicants are automatically considered for admission to the Honors 
College when they apply to the university.

The Women in Engineering Program is a living-learning pro- 
gram that concentrates on involving women in engineering projects 
and activities, fields stereotypically believed to be dominated by 
men. The program is offered through the A. James Clark School of 

The program was started in 1995 with a grant from the Sloan 
Foundation. Students in the program have the option of living in El- 
licott Hall with other women in the major. 

Pre-college students as young as elementary school-age can 
enroll in camps and special trips to the university's engineering 
school. Those actually enrolled in the program are offered research 
opportunities and a chance to mentor students. 

A fellows program is also offered to the women, in which they 
are each paired with an engineering faculty member. 

Women can also receive a teaching fellowship. 

"It's a really good support system— they pair everyone up with 
a mentor. It really shows you the ropes," said Marisa Cicale, a se- 
nior mechanical engineering major. "Women are at an advantage 
because we have so many resources available to us." 


Gemstone is a four-year living-learning progrann in which gift- 
ed students research a topic extensively. Working in teams, the 
students ultimately graduate with a thesis that they present to ex- 
perts in the corresponding field. 

"The best part of Gemstone is being able to work on a topic 
that you otherwise might never have had the chance to explore," 
said senior biology and psychology major Hannah Tolley. "Research 
topics aren't restricted to people in a particular major; any person 
can be on any team. Therefore, it allows you to expand your knowl- 
edge about a subject without having to take a class." 

Gemstone works with the university's Honors College to select 
from incoming freshmen. Admitted students usually have a weight- 
ed high school GPA of 4.5 and an average SAT score of 1459 on 
the critical reading and math sections. 

Students in the program take special classes and a series of 
seminars based on their team projects. Each team is paired with a 
mentor who is vital in assisting students in developing their ideas 
and experiments. 

Tolley is involved with Team Carbon Sinks. Her group is "ex- 
ploring the feasibility of burial and submersion of dead wood as a 
carbon sequestration technique," she said. 

According to their website, this prestigious program accepts 
about 190 students each year. Students graduate with a Gemstone 
citation, awarded during a ceremony at the end of the year.

Global Communities is based in Dorchester Hall, it is a living- 
learning program for students interested in international culture. 
The program lasts for four semesters and includes a one-credit 
colloquium each semester based on global issues. 

"It was a very close knit group," Kelly MacBride-Gill, an anthro- 
pology major, said. "Everyone in the dorm takes the same classes 
and does the same homework— there's a lot of wandering up and 
down the halls." 

Classes include "Understanding Culture and Cultural Differ- 
ences" and "Diverse Perspectives on Global Issues." Students 
compile a portfolio that includes their experiences in the program. 
Those who have completed Global Communities receive a "Global 
Competency Notation" on their transcript. 

The students are required to live in Dorchester Hall for the du- 
ration of their enrollment in the program. The hall is located right in 
the center of the campus, near the Stamp Student Union. Students 
live in a single, double or triple room with others in the program. 
The students share Dorchester Hall with the Jimenez-Porter Writ- 
ers' House. 

The Bridges Council, run by students in the program, organiz- 
es social events for program members. The council also organizes 
an international dinner every fall where students cook a variety of 
exotic, foreign dishes for guests. Every spring. Bridges also orga- 
nizes "Cultural Explosion," a campus-wide event based on perfor- 
mances by multicultural groups. 

The program is available to students regardless of major. 
There is an application process to enroll in Global Communities. 




Ever wanted to start your own business? A number of Univer- 
sity of Maryland students already have, thanks to Hinman Campus 
Entrepreneurship Opportunities (CEOs), a living-learning program 
on campus aimed at developing entrepreneurial skills in students. 

Students in the program live together in the South Campus 
Commons, each working toward starting their own business ven- 
ture. "Many students run companies that are very profitable even 
while they're in college," said Alison Willman, a finance major and 
Hinman CEO. "The program was created to facilitate the growth of 
student-run companies." 

While creating a business is not mandatory, about a quarter 
of students manage to create and start their own businesses. Stu- 
dents in the program take 12 credits with other Hinman CEOs, as 
well as several optional elective credits. 

The dorms in Commons are equipped with a boardroom and 
seminar room, complete with wireless Internet access and copying 
and printing facilities. Staff members of the program have on-site 
offices and are constantly available for students with questions or 
problems regarding their companies. A $250,000 seed fund is set 
up for students in the program, specifically to help students with 
their budding companies. 

Members of Hinman CEOs are able to network through week- 
ly guest speakers and the more than 300 alumni of the program. 



The Honors Humanities program is a specialized program 
within the university's Honors program designed for students who 
are interested in the humanities and the creative arts. Though the 
program focuses on the humanities, Honors Humanities is open to 
all majors at the university. 

According to the program's website, each year Honors Hu- 
manities recruits about 50 students to join the community. In order 
to be eligible for Honors Humanities, students must first be admit- 
ted to the university's Honors College. Students participating in the 
program then live together in Wicomico Hall. 

Additionally, students in the Honors Humanities living-learn- 
ing community may also participate in the Jimenez-Porter Writers' 
House or the Language House during the second year of the Hon- 
ors Humanities program. 

Students in the program take courses with other students in 
the Honors College and work toward a Keystone Project that com- 
plements their interests and courses. 










Located in Dorchester Hall, the Jimenez-Porter Writers' House 
is home to students interested in all things literary. Students in the 
program create stories, plays and poetry, all while living together. 

The program is named after University of Maryland's very own 
Juan Ramon Jimenez, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and 
formerly a professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, 
and Katherine Anne Porter, a 20th-century writer who donated per- 
sonal papers and books to Hornbake Library. 

This living-learning program, founded in 2002, produces a lit- 
erary journal called Stylus, and holds various public reading series 
like TerPoets and Writers Here & Now. 

Students enrolled in the two-year program attend colloquia 
and take such classes as "Creative Writing Across Languages and 
Cultures" and "Form and Theory of Poetry" and "Form and Theory 
of Fiction." Each student meets with an adviser every semester 
and produces a writing portfolio by the end of their first year. At 
the completion of the program, a student will have completed a 
"Chapbook," which is a self-published book filled with their creative 

Students in the program are offered two literary study abroad 
options: Chile and Egypt. In Chile, students learn about the recon- 
struction of Chilean democracy through works by Pablo Neruda 
and other authors. Students in the Egypt program travel around the 
country while reading modern-day works by Arab authors. 




Created in 1989, the Language House Immersion Program 
was the first living-learning program at the University of Mary- 
land. Students are immersed in a cluster in which they learn and 
practice speaking a language of their choosing. There are 10 pro- 
grams to choose from: Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, Italian, Persian, 
Russian, Japanese, French, German and Chinese. 

Students in the program live on campus in St. Mary's Hall. 
Grouped by language, students are immersed in a foreign culture 
without ever leaving the United States. The Language House is 
open to second-semester freshmen and older students. 

Those in the program do everyday things like eating, doing 
homework or studying together, while practicing a language other 
than English. Students applaud the program, saying it provides a 
one-of-a-kind opportunity on campus to really learn an unfamiliar 
language and culture. 

"The Language House is just a great multicultural experi- 
ence," said Joseph Paulson, a senior mathematics and Jewish 
studies major. "The best part is being in the center of campus and 
living with open-minded people." Paulson lives in the Hebrew lan- 
guage cluster. 

Students must successfully complete a language course 
every semester while in the program. Weekly cluster meetings are 
scheduled, where students interact with other cluster members 
and their mentor. Each cluster includes a mentor who is a native 
speaker or a student fluent in the target language. 

Mandatory "house events" like Maryland Day and Around the 
World Dinner are scheduled each year and intra-house clubs are 
extremely popular. Members of Language House attend a mini- 
mum of five meetings of these clubs per semester. Students also 
spend time with members of their cluster by cooking at least one 
meal a week with fellow students. 

Admission to the program is determined by a strong applica- 
tion, an essay, letters of recommendation and an oral interview 
with a faculty member associated with the program.

The Honors College at the University of Maryland is a living- 
learning program that consists of a select group of academical- 
ly gifted students. About 800 students per year are invited to this 
highly selective program. 

In addition to regular classes, students take seminars spe- 
cifically designed for the Honors College. The seminars hold 20 
students and are worth three credits. Students also have the op- 
tion of taking an honors version of regular classes. These classes 
are typically faster paced than the average class. Students receive 
an Honors citation on their transcript after completing five of these 
classes or seminars. A student stays in the Honors program the 
entire duration of their time at the university. 

"It's an exciting time to be in Honors, as it just became an 
Honors College," said Mina Dixon, a journalism and English double 
major. "It gives you a small college feeling in a big university." 

The Honors College plans an annual white water rafting trip. 
This October, Honors students trekked to West Virginia with Cant- 
rell Ultimate Rafting for a special experience offered only to the 

Each semester Honors Humanities organizes ART FEST with 
the help of the Jimenez-Porter Writers' House. An open microphone 
is offered to all students at the university in Anne Arundel Hall. 

Honors students live in Anne Arundel, Denton, Queen Anne's, 
Ellicott and Wicomico halls. Those in Honors have access to each of 
these buildings. Events like ice cream socials are planned through- 
out the school year, as well as special lectures designed especially 
for the Honors students. Presentations on topics like the National 
Security Agency and the Mayans' somber prediction for 2012 were 
among the lectures given this year.

The Adele H. Stamp Student Union is iiome to the Univer- 
sity Book Center, TerpZone, Adele's, a variety of restaurants in the 
food court, the MD Food Co-Op, The Coffee Bar, Hoff Theater, the 
Union Shop and many other student attractions. It is a place where 
organizations can meet and host events and where students can 
come together and relax in between classes. 


Located on the basement floor of the Stamp Student Union is 
the Maryland Food Collective, also known as the MD Food Co-Op. 
This funky, laid-back shop is known around campus for its healthy

The Co-Op features a sandwich line offering more than 50 
ingredients and a multitude of mostly organic groceries. At the front 
of the store is a massive display of bagels, with more than 10 dif- 
ferent varieties. 

"I have really strange taste in snack food," said Jen Goldman, 
a senior art education major. "But the Co-Op has my favorites: ba- 
nana chips and Primal strips." 

The Co-Op is run unlike any other shop on campus. There is 
no appointed boss or store manager, only a collection of paid work- 
ers and volunteers who run the store themselves. Each worker has 
an equal vote at weekly meetings, where all decisions are made 
regarding the Co-Op. 

"I love how the people are so quirky and unique," Goldman

With a campus spanning more than 1,300 acres, a multitude 
of transportation options is essential for University of Maryland stu- 
dents. Thankfully, the university offers many ways to get around. 

Biking to class is popular, thanks to a number of strategically 
placed bike racks around campus. Bikers twist around the maze of 
sidewalks on the way to their next class, making sure to avoid run- 
ning into walking students. 

The university also offers a variety of bus routes for students, 
aptly named Shuttle-UM. Commuter routes during the day wind 
around College Park, hitting stops reaching everywhere from Knox 
Road to The Courtyards. Buses also travel to surrounding areas, 
picking up commuters in cities like Greenbelt, Laurel and Silver 

At night, buses run around the campus, winding through North 
Campus, South Campus and the Route 1 corridor. There are five 
routes: green, blue, orange, purple and gold. Each of the routes 
services a different area on campus. 

Looking to go to Washington, D.C.? Maryland's Department 
of Transportation offers a shuttle service every day from the Stamp 
Student Union. The short ride safely takes students down Paint 
Branch Parkway to the front of the College Park-U of MD Metro 



Looking for a good time? Look no further than Route 1 , right 
off Maryland's campus. The busy street is home to a variety of 
bars, restaurants and places to shop. 

For a night on the town, students venture into one of the five 
bars gracing Route 1 : The Thirsty Turtle, Santa Fe Cafe, R.J. Bent- 
ley's Filling Station and Cornerstone Grill and Loft. These moon- 
light as restaurants during the day. The fifth bar, The Mark Lounge, 
is known for its upscale aura and high-class drinks. 

Hungry? Route 1 caters to almost every culinary taste. Stu- 
dents can find sandwiches at Potbelly, burgers at Five Guys and 
Fries and sushi at Wasabi or Yami Yami. Ten Ren's Tea Time serves 
bubble tea along with Chinese food. Marathon Deli specializes in 
Greek food. Mexican food is served at Chipotle and California Tor- 
tilla. Chinese food is the specialty at Panda, Shanghai Cafe and 
China Cafe. Wings are sold at Cluck-U Chicken and smoothies are 
served at Smoothie King. 

CVS is also right on Route 1, perfect for a quick trip to pick 
up shampoo or a tube of mascara. Rugged Wearhouse offers stu- 
dents a selection of quality clothes for discounted prices and Stripe 
3 Adidas sells its trademark athletic gear. 

The Greek Store in the College Park Shopping Center caters 
to Maryland's Greek community, offering lettered shirts and Greek 
paraphernalia. On any given day the store is filled with students 
looking to add to their collection of sorority and fraternity embla- 
zoned items. 

"I like that there's a lot of different types of foods and food op- 
tions within walking distance," Devon Kelly, a criminology major, 
said. "I don't have a car like a lot of other college students so it's 
nice that everything is within walking distance." 



There is a wide variety of organizations open to students 
who want to get involved at the University of Maryland. Students 
can join sororities or fraternities; they can join political groups or 
groups that center around community service. For students more 
academically-minded, there are honors societies and clubs with 
future career goals in mind. There are also religious groups, gov- 
erning bodies, sports clubs and more. The possibilities are end-

Many students participate in Greek life to enhance their col- 
lege experience. The lifelong commitment of fraternity and sorority 
membership creates close friendships that last throughout college 

and beyond. Going Greek creates opportunities for students to 

expand their leadership skills, strive for academic excellence and 

become involved in the community. 

SORORITY RUSH: the rush process all depends on the time of the year. 


Greek life advertisement starts immediately upon returning to school from summer break. The 
infamous chalking technique brands the campus with sorority names and catches the eyes of 
many who want to join. During the Meet the Greeks fair on McKeldin Mall, potential new mem- 
bers have a chance to meet each Greek organization and have their questions about each 

chapter answered. 
Fall rush is far less formal than spring rush. Sororities have open houses where girls are al- 
lowed to tour the chapter houses and meet the sisters of whichever sorority they choose to 
rush. The parties are themed and have decorations and great food. Since potential new mem- 
bers are able to choose the parties they want to attend, this gives the sisters a chance to learn 

who is interested and get to know them. 

3. BIDS 

Sororities are allowed to give bids to girls throughout the entire fall rush process via telephone 

or going to the dorms. Since each chapter maximum is set at 95 members, sororities are only 

allowed to disperse bids to as many girls as they want without exceeding 95 total women in 

the chapter. 


New members accept their bids by going to the chapter house. They are then welcomed by 

their new sisters. This is called bid day. 
Members embark on their new member period after accepting their bid. During this time they 
learn more about the chapter and bond with their new sisters. 
New members are initiated into the chapter after completing their new member period, which 
usually last several weeks. Initiation is a secret and sacred ceremony where members official- 
ly become sisters of their chapter. 



Spring rush is a much more formal and structured recruitment process than fall rush. Girls are 
required to register for spring rush on the university's Panhellenic Association website. 


All potential new members are divided into groups called Rho Gamma Groups on the first day 

of formal recruitment. A woman in Greek life who is called a Rho Gamma heads each group 

and helps with any questions or problems that arise during the rush process. 


Each Rho Gamma group travels to all 14 Panhellenic-recognized sororities at the university. 

This enables all potential new members to have more insight to each chapter and see their 

options before the selection process begins. 


Potential new members meet with their Rho Gammas after seeing each chapter in order to 
rank their top 10. The selection process is mutual, so they will return to the chapters that in- 
vite them back. Throughout the duration of the process, potential new members rank their top 
six, and then top three and finally they select their No. 1 chapter with which they would want 

to be affiliated. 

5. BIDS 

Since formal recruitment is structured as a mutual selection process, girls are ensured to re- 
ceive a bid from one of the top three chapters of their choice. 


The new members pick up their bids at the Stamp Student Union and go to the chapel to 
meet their sisters. They receive bid day shirts and then partake in the traditional "run" from 

the chapel to their new chapter house. 

7. NEW MEMBER PERIOD and INITIATION are the same in both fall and spring recruitment. 


Rushing fraternities is completely different than rushing sororities. For instance, there is no 
difference between fall and spring rush when rushing a fraternity. Also, the rush process is 

less formal than sorority recruitment. 


The beginning of each semester, known as Rush Week, signifies the beginning of fraternity 

rush. Each fraternity throws several house parties as their main marketing events to entice 

potential new members to join. These parties, which are open to everyone, promote each 

chapter and give the brothers an opportunity to socialize with potential new members. 


Fraternities host Brotherhood Events in order familiarize themselves with their potential new 
members and vice versa. These events are hosted at venues such as ESPN Zone, Dave & 
Buster's or dinner at a nice restaurant. The brothers hold "invite-only" events for some poten- 
tial new members to attend in order to narrow down the selection process. 

3. BIDS 

Finally, the brothers give out bids after getting to know the potential new members and as- 
sessing who is interested in their chapter. 


Fraternities also have a brief new member period, similar to sororities, where the new mem- 
bers become educated about the chapter and spend more time with the chapter members. 
Upon completion of this period, the new members are initiated into the brotherhood via a 

sacred ritual.

College freshmen were not the only ones experiencing a monumental change at the be- 
ginning of the 2006-2007 school year. In fact, the entire solar system mourned the loss of Pluto

made. At Maryland, students protested sweatshops rumored to make university clothing, while

Sadness struck the hearts of people across the nation, and put fear in students' minds in 
April, when a shooting rampage at Virginia Tech resulted in 33 deaths. In the same month, Don 
Imus was fired from CBS for racist comments regarding the Rutgers women's basketball team. 
Closer to home, former student Daniel Murray was sentenced to almost 40 years in prison for

The 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Cinina, ended just before school started, but with 
superstars like Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, it would be an injustice not to mention them. 
In other news, John McCain announced Sarah Palin as his running mate, making her the first 
female running for vice president. 

The Silver Line was added to the DOTS nighttime bus service and the CRS eliminated 
fees for group exercise classes. The university also handed out free iPhones and iTouches in a 
pilot program designed to explore connections between learning and technology. Off-campus, 
political crisis in Thailand forced Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej to declare a state of emer- 
gency. The U.S. government also took control of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie

between Nov. 26 and 29. In university news, Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn visited with

Ritchie Coliseum on Dec. 5. In world news, Israel initiated air strikes on the Gaza Strip once 
again. Bangladesh held general elections after two years of rioting and political unrest. On Dec. 
31 , an extra second was added to the year as a "leap second." 

January brought a new year and a new family to the White House, as President Barack 
Obama was inaugurated Jan. 20. He immediately got to work appointing his Cabinet, announc- 
ing Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and signing documents that would shut down secret 
CIA-operated prisons and detention camps, including Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. Also in 
the U.S., a miracle happened Jan. 15 when pilot Chesley Sullenberger successfully landed US

February welcomed the world's first openly gay head of government when Johanna Sig- 
urdardottir was elected Prime Minister of Iceland. Iran launched its own satellite named "Omid"

the university was ranked number 19 for "Globe's Most Cybersavvy Universities." 

The university added fiber connectivity to the Hornbake Media Studio on March 2. The 
failing economy was an international media story this year that hit close to home when the 
university launched the "Keep Me Maryland" initiative March 12 to help keep students enrolled 
despite financial difficulties. Also, a flash flood combined with the Situ Gintung dam's failure led 
to the deaths of at least 99 people in Indonesia. 

In April, swine flu became a global concern when the United States declared a public 
health emergency. On April 8, Somali pirates hijacked an American ship and took the captain

The world lost a beloved musician during the summer of 2009 when Michael Jackson 
died, but by the time September rolled around and school was back in session, students were 
prepared to get back into the swing of things. President Obama addressed millions of school 
age Americans in an online broadcast Sept. 8, despite controversy over his political agenda in 
the speech. Later in September, the G-20 Pittsburgh Summit gathered world leaders to discuss 
the economic crisis. Natural disasters struck late in the month when an earthquake killed 115 in 
Samoa and another killed 700 in Indonesia just one day later. 

October held exciting news for Brazil when it was announced that Rio de Janeiro won the 
bid for the 2016 Olympic Games, beating out Chicago, Tokyo and Madrid. However, sad news 
came to the U.S. when 14 Americans were killed in an Afghanistan helicopter crash Oct. 26. In 
Maryland, a state law was passed banning text messaging while driving. In an effort to avoid a 
flu pandemic, the university carried out a mass vaccination drill mid-month. 

Tragedy struck the nation in November when 1 3 were killed and another 30 were wound- 
ed after a shooting at the Fort Hood military base in Texas. Washington, D.C., sniper John Allen 
Muhammad was executed in Virginia on Nov. 10. In lighter news, the New York Yankees won 
the World Series in early November and the University of Maryland announced its new effort to 
preserve the 400 reels of football game footage that are experiencing chemical breakdown. 

A December snowstorm forced the university to shut down, canceling December gradu- 
ation festivities and the last day of finals. For students some finals were postponed until next 
semester; most were canceled. In national news, President Barack Obama announced Dec. 2 
that he would be sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, and the U.S. Senate passed the 
health care reform bill Dec. 24. 

Haiti suffered an awful disaster Jan. 12 when a 7.0-magnitude earthquake rocked the

The 2010 season marks the beginning of a new era for the 
Terrapin baseball program, as Terry Rupp resigned as the Terps' 
coach after the 2009 season, effectively ending a nine-year run 
behind the wheel. Erik Bakich, a former assistant coach at Van- 
derbilt University, has replaced him. Bakich is known throughout 
college baseball as an excellent recruiter, a talent that might help 
turn around a fledgling Terp program. 

Bakich is striving to transform the Terps into a team capable 
of contending with ACC powers, such as North Carolina, Virginia, 
Clemson, Georgia Tech and Florida State. 

Entering the 2010 season, the Terps don't appear ready to 
contend for an ACC title just yet. They do, however, return most of 
their pitching staff, despite losing Scott Swinson to the Baltimore 
Orioles. Their staff will include juniors RHP Brett Harman and LHP 
Eric Potter and sophomore LHP Matt Fullerton, all of whom saw 
plenty of weekend appearances last season, albeit with mixed re- 

The Terps will have to make do with the loss of third baseman 
Mike Murphy, who graduated in the spring after leading the Terps' 
offense last season. Senior Mike Rozak will help pace the Terps 
offensively, alongside sophomores Matt Murakami and Tyler Ben- 
nett, who also return after strong second halves to the 2009 sea- 

It remains to be seen what shape the Terps will take during 
this transition year between coaches, but Bakich 's recruiting skills 
will certainly help the Terps' over the next few seasons.

Illen's Basketball 



The Terrapin men's basketball team entered the 2009-2010 season with high 
expectations. After losing only one contributor from last season's NCAA tournament 
team in Dave Neal, the Terps entered the season at No. 26 in the nation. Led by 
the play of senior captains Greivis Vasquez, Eric Hayes and Landon Milbourne, the 
Terps climbed as high as No. 21 in the polls before falling to Cincinnati and Wiscon- 
sin in November's Maui Invitational. The Terps also dropped a game to powerhouse 
Villanova in the BB&T Classic in Washington D.C., despite a very strong effort. 

Vasquez and Milbourne have been the Terps' most consistent scorers in the first 
half of the season, averaging 17.9 and 14.8 points per game, respectively, through 
the team's first 1 8 contests. 

Coach Gary Williams entered his 21st season at the helm for the Terps, who 
have seen remarkable improvement from sophomore guard Sean Mosiey, whose 
newfound scoring touch has helped the Terps to a 3-1 start in the ACC. Mosiey is 
averaging 12.6 points per game in the early season. 

2009 has also seen the arrival and emergence of freshman Jordan Williams, 
who has appeared in every game of the young season and leads the Terps with 7.9 
rebounds per game through the first 18 games. 

While the Terps suffered an early hiccup with a home loss against William & 
Mary on Dec. 30, they have been playing much more consistently in the new year. 
With a nice home win against a well-respected Florida State team Jan. 10 and a 
blowout victory over a surprisingly strong N.C. State squad, the Terps look poised to 
make a run at this season's wide open ACC. Time will tell how the Terps fare against 
the upper echelon of the conference, with late season showdowns against Duke, 
^Georgia Tech and Clemson. 

Women's Basketball 

The 2009-2010 Terrapin women's basketball team came into the season with 
the undesirable task of trying to replace Ail-Americans Marissa Coleman and Kristi 
Toliver. The Terps are remarkably young, with guard Lori Bjork, a transfer from Illi- 
nois, the only senior on the active roster. 

Sophomore center Lynetta Kizer is the only returning starter from last season's 
Elite Eight squad and has led the Terps through their first 20 games, averaging 12 
points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Freshman fon^/ard Diandra Tchatchouang, a 
native of France, has shined in her first season, leading the team thus far with 13.3 
points per game. 

Generally, the Terps' inexperience has led to a less consistent team than Terps 
fans have grown accustomed to. Bjork, who is the only upperclassmen player with 
a reputation, is a sharpshooter from beyond the arc, but the Terps have seen some 
sloppy games slip from their grasp, particularly on the road, where they have had big 
losses to Mississippi State and Towson. 

However, the Terps have had some bright spots early in the season, most no- 
tably their 61 -60 win away from the Comcast Center against a top-20 Virginia squad. 
They also fell just short of upsetting No. 6 Duke at home, 58-57. 

Freshman Dara Taylor has showed much promise in the early year, handling 
the ball as the Terps' point guard. She had her best game of the season against Vir- 
ginia, where she recorded 10 points and 11 assists; her speed and athleticism have 
been noticeable throughout her first season. 

The Terps will also look for continued contributions from guards Anjale Barrett 
and Kim Rodgers and forward Tianna Hawkins as the season moves fonward. 

Storied coach Brenda Frese's squad appears to be able to play with any team 
in the ACC, which is encouraging both for this season and for the young squad's

The Terrapin competitive cheer squad entered the 2009-201 
season with confidence, returning a strong group of veterans, in- 
cluding seven seniors. They also incorporated a promising group 
of nine freshmen. 

The Terps performed well in their first three competitions 
of the season, putting forth a new routine this season in the All 
Capital Unlimited Championship, the Jamfest Jumpin' Jam and 
the Chick-fil-A Charm City Dress Rehearsal. Led by co-captains 
Joanna Venezia and Lauren Louis, the Terps were praised for 
the difficulty of their routine and earned "Most Entertaining" at the 

Coach Jarnell Bonds will lead the Terps into the second half 
of the season, where they hope to perform well in preparation for 
the NCA College Nationals in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Cross Country 

The Terrapin men and women's cross country teams followed 
very similar paths this season, each finishing in seventh place at 
the ACC Championships in Gary, N.C. In addition, each team was 
highlighted by one excellent runner, with Alex Lundy leading the 
men and Kristin Reed leading the women's team. 

Lundy narrowly missed being named AII-ACC, when he 
missed a 14th place finish by coming in 17th. Reed finished in 
27th place in a strong women's field. 

The men's program, under the guidance of coach Andrew 
Valmon, had their best outing in the season opener, winning the 
UMES Lid-Lifter Invitational. Lundy, a junior, won the race, while 
Greg Kelsey and Kyle Gaffney finished in second and fourth place, 
respectively. The men's team went on to place second in the Wolf- 
pack Invitational and the Great American XC Festival, both held 
in Gary, N.G. Lundy won the Great American and came in eighth 
at the Wolfpack, while Kelsey earned a second place finish at the 

Oddly enough, the women's team placed the same as the 
men's in all six races, placing first in the UMES and second in 
the Wolfpack and the Great American. With Valmon also leading 
the women's program, the women started off the year right, with 
Reed taking the individual title at the UMES and Julie Fricke, Erin 
Matyus and Ashley Campbell placing 3-5. Reed also placed first 
in the Wolfpack, with Lindsay Ritchings clocking in at sixth. 

Lundy was the lone Terp to qualify for the NCAA Nationals, 
where he finished 88th. Lundy will be back for another season to 
lead the men's team, while the women will be in search of a new 
leader with the graduation of Reed.

Held Hockey 

As defending national champions, the 2009 Terrapin field 
hockey team did not suffer so much as a hiccup until their final 
game. Following a perfect 1 8-0 regular season, the Terps went on 
to win the ACC tournament and reach the NCAA championship 
game, where they lost a heartbreaker to ACC foe North Carolina, 

The Terps enjoyed their first undefeated season in coach 
Missy Meharg's 22nd season, appearing in their eighth champi- 
onship game under her guidance. Junior forward and captain Ka- 
tie O'Donnell, a first team All-American who was named national 
player of the year and offensive player of the year, led the Terps. 
O'Donnell's fellow captains were senior midfielder Brianna Da- 
vies and first team All-American senior goalkeeper Alicia Grater. 

The Terps' most exciting win came Oct. 7, when they took 
down then-No. 5 Princeton 3-2 in overtime after trailing 2-1 at 
halftime. Senior forward Nicole Muracco, a second team All- 
American and the program's all-time 
scoring leader, scored the overtime '\ """ 
goal to lead the Terps to victory. T 

The Terps will lose seven se- 
nior starters (Davies, Grater, Murac- ^i^ 
CO, Alexis Pappas, Ameliet Rischen, *^ 
Kristina Foster and Emma Thomas) 
to graduation, a group that has won ■ 

two national championships. 

O'Donnell will return, and while 
she will be joined by plenty of talented 
players, including freshman midfield- 
er Megan Frazer, the Terps will none- 
theless have a difficult time repeating 
one of the best seasons in field hock- 
ey history. 


doming "into the 2009 season, many believed tiiat tinis would be a 
rebuilding year for the Terrapin football team. The Terps lost 30 players to 
graduation following the 2008 season— the biggest senior class in coach 
Ralph' Friedgen's nine-year career. This year's squad had just 14 seniors, 
the fewest in Friedgen's tenure, and the team's lack of experience likely 
contributed to its 2-1 season— the team's worst winning percentage since 

The Terps put forth their best performance of the season in a 24-21 
upset victory over Clemson at Byrd Stadium on Oct. 3. The Tigers, who 
provided Friedgen's troops with their only victory against an FBS oppo- 
nent, went on to win the ACC Atlantic Division. The Terps' other victory 
came Sept. 12, when they emerged victorious in an entertaining overtime 
game against James Madison at Byrd Stadium. 

The 2009 season was marred by injuries, most notably running back 
Da'Rel Scott and cornerback Nolan Carroll. Carroll, believed to be the 
team's best defensive player, went down for the year in the win against 
James Madison. Scott was banged up for much of the season, and either 
missed or saw limited carries in seven of the Terps' games. 

The Terps will now bid farewell to senior quarterback Chris Turner, 
who has been under center since his sophomore season in 2007. Turner 
is second in the school's history in passing yards, passing attempts and 
completions and ranks fourth in passing touchdowns. Turner led the team 
to a 12-18 record in his three years as a starter. It appears that speedy 
sophomore Jamarr Robinson will take over for Turner next season. 

The Terps will also lose junior offensive tackle Bruce Campbell to the 
NFL Draft. At 6'7" and 310 pounds, ranked Campbell as the 
sixth best prospect at his position. 

Junior linebacker Alex Wujciak had another great year as the an- 
chor of the Terps defense, compiling 122 tackles, good for second in the 
Atlantic Coast Conference and 14th in the country. The Terps will also re- 
turn sophomore wide receiver Torrey Smith, their most explosive offensive 
weapon who also led the nation in kick return yards, and junior running 
back Scott, who was first team AII-ACC in 2008. 

I- The good news for Terps fans is that the 201 squad will be led by 23 
returning seniors, as well as experienced underclassmen such as Smith 
and sophomore defensive back Kenny Tate. After a disappointing season 
in which they failed to reach a bowl game for the first time since 2004, the 
Terps have the potential to present an explosive team in 2010.

Coach Tom Hanna and the Terrapin men's golf team enjoyed some suc- 
cesses througfiout their fall 2009 season. Led by junior Andrew Kay, the Terps 
participated in five toumaments in the fall, including the Maryland Intercolle- 
giate, vvhich the Terps hosted in Columbia. 

Sophomores John Popeck and Sean Brannan led the Terps to a sixth 
place finish in the 15-team Maryland Intercollegiate, finishing in 11th and 14th 
place, respectively. 

Kay had the best individual performance of the fall, finishing in fifth place 
in the well-respected Firestone Invitational on Oct. 13. Kay also tied for 17th 
place in the Oct. 20 Memphis Intercollegiate, where the Terps finished in 1 0th 
place out of a tough 16-team field. 

Junior Tom Hanna III and sophomore Joey Rice have also performed well 
for ttie Terps, whose spring season begins March 1 at the College of Charles- 
ton Shootout. They will also participate in the River Landing Intercollegiate in 
Wallace, N.C., and the Wolfpack Intercollegiate in Raleigh, N.C., before the 
ACC Championship in late April. The season will wrap up when the Terps travel 
to Charlottesville, Va., on May 1 to participate in the Cavalier Classic. 


After a tough start at Charleston's September Cougar Classic, where the 
Terrapin women's golf team finished in ninth place, the squad had a very suc- 
cessful fall season. Highlighted by a first place finish in the 1 5-team Spider Invi- 
tational in mid-Octot)er, the Terps placed in the top five in three of their five fall 
toumaments. Keni Connolly paced the Terps in the Spider Invitational, finishing 
third overall. 

Jessica Hollandsworth provided the best individual effort for the Terps in 
tiie fall, placing first individually at the last toumament of the fall season, the 
Palmetto Intercollegiate in Kiawah Island, S.C. Hollandsworth helped propel 
the Terps to a fifth-place finish. She also placed sixth overall in both the Spider 
Invitational and Greenville, N.C.'s Lady Pirate Intercollegiate. 

Connolly performed well throughout the fall, also finishing 11th overall in 
the Cardinal Cup in Simpsonville, Ky. Freshman Christine Shimel was also a 
solid contritMJtor, placing 10th at the Spider Invitational and 15th in the Cardinal 

The squad, under the guidance of 11th year coach Jason Rodenhaver, 
will participate in five toumaments in the spring season, including the season's 
pinnacle, Greensboro, N.C.'s ACC Championship.

The 201 Terrapin gymnastics team started the season 
with a big change when six-year assistant coach Brett Nel- 
ligan took over for his father, Bob, who had been behind 
the wheel of the Terps for over 30 years. Nelligan entered 
the season with a very experienced squad, returning 11 let- 
terwinners and six seniors. The Terps also welcomed five 
new competitors, including freshman Kesley Cofsky, who 
was impressive in the first two meets, earning Rookie of the 
Week honors in her first week. 

Junior Abigail Adams looks to continue to perform well 
after earning All-EAGL honors and being named co-MVP 
of the Terps last season. Senior Michele Brenner, who was 
All-EAGL in the floor exercise last season, also looks to 
help pace the Terps. 

The Terps will likely be chasing EAGL foe N.C. State, 
whom they fell to early in the season, in hopes of a confer- 
ence championship, along with EAGL rival West Virginia. 
The Terps are definitely solid, but it remains to be seen just 
how successful they will be. 



After an up-and-down 2009 season in which the Terrapin men's lacrosse team ranked No. 
11 post-Sfeason, coach Dave Cottle enters his ninth year on the Terps' sideline with a team that 
appears solid enough to do some damage in the 2010 campaign. 

Inside Lacrosse magazine lists the Terps as having the most dangerous attack group in the 
nation coming into the season, as the team returns senior Will Yeatman, juniors Grant Catalino, 
Ryan Young and Travis Reed and sophomore Joe Cummings up front. With Reed selected as a 
pre-season Third Team Ail-American and Catalino as an Honorable Mention for the honor, the 
group will return a year older and more experienced in their quest to regain their status as one of 
the nation's most dominant teams. 

Pre-season AII-ACC and All-American Honorable Mention Brian Phipps will be between the 
pipes for the Terps, providing the team with experience and confidence at the game's most stressful 
position. The team enters the 2010 campaign ranked No. 8 pre-season by Lacrosse Magazine. 

This year's schedule is highlighted by a Feb. 12 trip to face-off with defending champions 
No. 2 Syracuse, as well as showdowns with powerhouses: No. 1 Duke and No. 5 Johns Hopkins 
at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Terps will also welcome rivals No. 3 Virginia and No. 13 
Navy to campus on back-to-back weekends in early April. 

The Terps hope to erase such losses as last year's March loss to Maryland - Baltimore 
County. Instead they will focus on winning tougher games, which they were unable to do in an 
overtime loss last season at Virginia or during a 10-9 defeat at the hands of Johns Hopkins. With 
the Terps' experience in 2010, games like these may go differently and help the squad succeed 
down the stretch. 

The Terrapin women's lacrosse team looks prepared for another serious run at a national 
championship in 2010. A Final Four squad last season, whose only loss came at the hands of 
North Carolina in the national semifinals, coach Cathy Reese's Terps are nationally ranked at No. 
2 in Lacrosse Magazine's pre-season poll. They fall behind Northwestern, the defending national 

The Terps' defense of their 2009 ACC crown will center on the play of their four captains: 
Caitlyn McFadden, Amanda Spinnenweber, Karissa Taylor and Sarah Mollison. This will be the 
third year with McFadden, Spinnenweber and Taylor captaining the squad, while Mollison is a re- 
turning All-American at attack. McFadden and Taylor are also All-Americans, and McFadden was 
named Lacrosse Magazine's pre-season player of the year. 

Senior Katie Gallagher will secure the defensive end with Taylor, helping to keep shots away 
from sophomores Mary Jordan and Brittany Dipper, who return after splitting time in the net last 

The Terps have a daunting schedule in 2010, with 10 of their 17 regular season games 
coming against teams ranked in the top 20 pre-season. Their toughest tests will be April 2, when 
they travel to No. 4 Pennsylvania, and April 10, when they travel to Chapel Hill, N.C., to face-off 
with North Carolina in a rematch of last season's national semifinal. 

The Terps certainly have the talent to make a lot of noise this season, and might be the team 
to take down Northwestern, who has won five consecutive national championships. 


Coach Laura Watten and the 2010 Terrapin softball squad 
are looking to build off of a solid 2009 campaign and move on to 
bigger and better things. 

The Terps return 12 players from last season's 29-26 team, 
while bringing eight new freshmen into the mix. Pitcher/utility ju- 
nior Kerry Hickey returns to the Terps after leading the team with 
a 2.48 ERA last season, and hitting .279 with two home runs and 
14 RBI. Hickey was named to last season's Division I All-Region 
team. Senior shortstop Alex Schultz also returns to the Terps, 
coming off of a solid season where she averaged .237. 

The Terps' non-conference schedule is highlighted by five 
tournaments: the Florida Atlantic Tournament, the NFCA Leadoff 
Classic, the Maryland Round Robin, the Florida Rebel Games 
and the University of South Florida Tournament. In total, the Terps 
will face off against nine teams that reached the NCAA tourna- 
ment last season, including a solid Georgia Tech squad, whom 
the Terps will face in March. 

The Terps will also welcome the return of sophomore out- 
fielder Vangie Galindo, whose .304 batting average last season 
made her second on the team. Galindo also led the 2009 Terps 
with 13 stolen bases. 

The Terps have a nice mix of youth and experience for 2010, 
a combination that could help them build on 2009's winning sea- 
son to gain a NCAA tournament bid.

I the season, the 2009 Terrapin men's soccer team attempted to defend their 2008 national title. Led by 
coach Sasho Cirovski, the Terps were able to overcome adversity to achieve a 1 2-4-1 regular season record and fight their 
way back to the NCAA quarterfinals, where they fell short to ACC rival Virginia. 

The Terps were held back by injury for much of the season, losing senior midfielder Doug Rodkey for the entire 
season. Rodkey jDroke a bone in his foot in a September upset over North Carolina, who was No. 2 in the nation at the 

The Terps also lost sophomore Casey Townsend for seven games after Townsend injured his ankle in a game 
against N.C. State on Sept. 19. Despite his missed time, he accumulated six goals, making him second on the team in 
goals. With 13 points, he also tied with senior Drew Yates for second in points. Jason Herrick led the team in both catego- 
ries, compiling nine goals and 19 points. 

Injuries played into the Terps' inconsistencies throughout the season. They were abJe to record big wins, such as 
their triumph over the Tar Heels or a 7-0 dismantling of Duquesne, but still fell to lesser opponents like George Mason. 
The Terps were able to persevere, however. Following a 1-0 loss to Virginia in the first round of the ACC tournament, they 
entered the NCAA Tournament unseeded for the first time since 2001 . 

The Terps' lack of consistency didn't have a significant effect in the early rounds of the tournament, as they pre- 
vailed over Loyola (MD), Penn State and Harvard due to timely scoring and solid goalkeeping from Zac MacMath. But the 
road ended a game short of the College Cup after the Terps lost to Virginia, 3-0. The Cavaliers had the Terps numbered 
this season, as the Terps went 0-2-1 against the rival while being knocked out of both the ACC and NCAA tournaments. 

While this was only the third time in eight seasons that the Terps failed to reach the College Cup— soccer's version 
of the Final Four— the Terps look strong coming into 2010, with nine of their 2009 opening day starters returning. 
Not only did 2009 mark the first time that the Terrapin women's soccer team reached the NCAA tournament in coach Brian 
Pensky's five-year tenure, but it also marked their fourth-ever trip to the Sweet 1 6. 

Meanwhile, the women's team, led by senior goalkeeper Mary Casey and sophomore forward Jasmyne Spencer, 
finished the regular season with a 12-4-2 record, going 4-4-2 against ACC opponents. 
Casey recorded clean sheets in her first two career post-season games, shutting out 
Monmouth, 4-0, and Washington State, 1-0, at Ludwig Field. . I.^y' \ ••*'*' I' ' 

Casey was rewarded for her solid play when she was drafted by the Los Ange- *^ff i . m. 

les Sol in the fourth round of the Women's Professional Soccer Draft on Jan. 15. j 

The Terps' biggest nemesis this season was mighty North Carolina, home to ' / ' 
women's soccer's most prestigious program and 2009's eventual national champions. 
The Tar Heels took down the Terps 1-0 during the regular season, 3-0 during the ACC 
tournament and 1-0 to knock the Terps out of the NCAA tournament in the Sweet 16. 
The Terps finished the season ranked No. 11 in the country. , ™ 

Spencer had a breakout year for the Terps, earning first team AII-ACC honors 
while leading the Terps with 10 goals and 25 points. Spencer and standout sophomore 
midfielder Mallory Baker were also named to the All-Southeast team. 

In addition to Casey, the Terps will say goodbye to seniors Brittany Cummins 
(captain) and Megan Watson, who both helped secure a strong Terp backline.

Swimming and Diving 

In coach Sean Schimmers second season as the coach of the 
Terrapin men and women's swimming and diving squads, the 2009- 
2010 Terps have seen mixed results. The Terps have been able to 
take down lesser opponents but have struggled against the nation's 
upper echelon. First place finishes at the Terrapin Cup held at Eppley 
Recreation Natatorium have highlighted each season. 

Ail-American Jen Vogel, Alexa Hamilton and Ginny Glover led 
the women's team through much of the season. Through 12 meets, 
the Terp women's team is 10-2, with a 3-1 record in the ACC. Their 
lone loss in conference came at the hands of a strong North Carolina 
team, ranked No. 15 as of Jan. 11 . The Terps also had a good show- 
ing in a meet with Villanova, Penn State and Pittsburgh in January. 
They were able to take two of the three meets, falling only to Penn 
State. Annie Fittin and Megan Lafferty have also performed well for 
the Terps. 

The men's team, who was unable to take an ACC victory, has 
not fared as well as the women's team. Their first place finish in the 
eight-team Terrapin Cup was impressive, however, and they were led 
by solid performances by Sean Stewart, Aleksandar Damjanic, Chris 
Bouchard and Andrew Relihan. Relihan has been one of the Terps' 
steadiest contributors of the year. 

Each team's season will culminate at the ACC Championships, 
held from Feb. 17 to 20. Any qualifying Terps will also have the op- 
portunity to compete in the NCAA Championships in mid-March. 


The 2010 Terrapin men and women's tennis teams are botii en- 
tering the season in similar situations, as each team replaced last 
year's head coach. The men's team brought in Kyle Spencer, a former 
assistant at Baylor, which has one of the nation's strongest programs. 
Spencer has already begun rebuilding the squad after a rough 2009 
season with 7-14 overall and only one winning match. 

The Terps will have a young squad in 2010, with five new fresh- 
men and one new sophomore, including Tommy Laine and Jesse Kiu- 
ru, two highly touted freshmen from Finland. Junior Graham Knowlton 
and sophomore Mathias Sarrazin are the only experienced returning 
Terps, each having seen time last season. The Terps will hope to im- 
prove in a traditionally strong ACC. 

The women's tennis team also brought In a highly regarded new 
coach for the season, Howard Joffe. Joffe is coming off two seasons 
with Miami (OH) University, where he was able to transform the pro- 
gram into the best program in the RedHawks' conference. Joffe is 
joining a program that, like their male counterpart, struggled mightily 
last season, going 4-1 7 with just one win in a strong ACC. 

Joffe 's squad will have seven players returning from last sea- 
son's team and three new freshmen joining the team. Seniors Lisa 
Miller and Maggie MacKeever return to lead the team, each having 
experience as singles in last season's campaign. 

Rebuilding seems to be a common theme between these two 
programs and with Spencer and Joffe it seems reasonable that the 
programs will be able to compete at a higher level in the near future.

Da'Rel Scott, who plays for the Terp football team, will join 
the team this year as a sprinter. The Terps' only senior, Jeremy 
Samuels, will be returning from last season's indoor 4X400 relay 
team, which placed first in the ACC. Tommy Friscia will lead the 
Terps' middle distance crowd, while cross-country standout Alex 
Lundy will lead the distance squad. 

The women's squad also looks strong for the Terps in 2010, 
led by junior Kiani Profit, whose multi-faceted skill set includes 
hurdles and jumps and makes her perfect for multi-event compe- 
titions. Seniors Alexis Booker and Melony McKay will be leading 
Terp sprinters, while fellow senior Kelley Pry will lead the charge 
in middle distance. Cross country star and senior Kristin Reed will 
lead the distance squad. 

The Terps' schedule is a busy one in 2010, with the ACC 
Championships taking place in late February for indoor track and 
in mid-April for outdoor track. 


' The 2009 Terrapin volleyball team, led by second-year coach Tim Hors- 
mon, had an up-and-down year. The Terps struggled to keep up with a grinding 
20-game conference schedule, and finished the season with a 6-14 record in 
the AGC. They were 14-19 overall, having performed well in non-conference 

The Terps' season was highlighted by season sweeps of ACC foes N.C. 
State and Boston College. Their Oct. 2 match at N.C. State ended with a thrill- 
ing 3-2 victory with eight separate lead changes throughout the five sets. 

Freshman libero Sam Rosario helped pace the Terps, and her killer serve 
gave the squad an additional scoring element. Rosario recorded 49 aces on 
the year, and could be seen on the floor for the Terps in every game. Freshman 
outside hitter Kara Bates and setter Taylor Jones joined her as young players 
who provided a steadying influence to the squad. 

Sophomore middle blocker Lisa Scott was also a strong contributor for 
the Terps and will provide additional experience for a Terps team that will return 
all but three players. 

Coming off of an abysmal 2008 campaign in which the Terps finished on 
top a mere six times, 2009 should ultimately be considered a success. And while 
the Terps will lose two of their strongest players in middle blocker Katie Usher 
and setter Hayley Hanson, brighter days seem to be just around the corner for 
Horsmon and his squad. Only helping their pursuit of a 2010 NCAA tournament 
berth is the signing of New York's Mary Cushman, an incoming freshman who 
was the New York Gatorade Player of the Year in 2008 and 2009. 

Water Polo 

The Terrapin water polo team, led by head coach Carl Salyer, finished its 2009 sea- 
son strong. The teann finished the season 7-1 in the CWPA's Southern Division and placed 
third in the CWPA Eastern Championship. In October 2009, the water polo team was se- 
lected as the No. 1 seed for the 2010 ECAC Championship. 

In September 2009, 16 of the university's water polo players made the ACC 
Honor Roll. Also in 2009, senior attackers Elizabeth Hopkins and Blaise Stanicic were voted 
to the 2009 Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches Women's All-America Team. 

The team kicked off its 2010 season with three wins at the Triton Invitational in San 
Diego in early February. 

The University of Maryland, which hosted the 2009 NCAA Championship for water 
polo, will host the 2010 Women's Eastern Championship from April 30 to May 2 at the Ep- 
pley Recreation Center. 


Coach Kerry McCoy and the 2009-2010 Terrapin wrestling team entered 
the season with the highest expectations the progrann has ever had, receiving 
the highest national pre-season ranking in the program's history at No. 6. And, 
as the Terps began the season 15-4 with a perfect 3-0 against ACC opponents, 
dreams of a national championship don't seem unrealistic. 

The Terps biggest victory through the first 75 percent of the season came 
against No. 4 Cornell on Nov. 20, when the Terps, led by Hudson Taylor, over- 
came a 1 7-9 deficit to defeat the Big Red. 

Taylor is returning alongside fellow players Steven Bell and Alex Krom. 
They have helped pace the Terps so far this season, and their unique combina- 
tion of experience and youth contributed to their early success. 

The Terps put forth good showings at two duals, going 2-1 at November's 
Northeast duals, which included No. 12 Central Michi- 
gan and No. 1 7 Lehigh, and went 3-2 at the very solid 
NWCA National Duals in November, falling only to No. I 
2 Iowa State and No. 6 Cornell. The Terps knocked off I 
a solid No. 14 Wisconsin squad to finish off this sue- i 
cessful trip. 

The team still must face ACC foes Virginia Tech _^ 
and Virginia in the regular season, ranked No. 20 and 
No. 23 respectively, before wrapping up the season 
with the ACC Championship. Ranked No. 7 as of Jan. 
1 9, the Terps appear poised to make a splash at Oma- 
ha, Neb.'s National Championship. ^Bn 

Snow in Maryland is not a rare event. Feet upon feet of snow, however, most assuredly is. 
More than 50 inches of snow fell on the Washington, D.C., area in December, January and Febru- 
ary, and students at the University of Maryland found themselves snowed-in on a closed campus. 

On Dec. 19. a storm that dropped nearly two feet of snow on the campus necessitated the 
canceling of the last day of finals and the rescheduling of winter commencement ceremonies. 
Many students had already left the campus before the storm hit in full force, but those who had a 
Saturday final and some of those in apartments remained on a snow-covered winter wonderland 
for some time until roads were clear enough to depart for winter break. Those who were stranded 
could be seen constructing igloos, sledding on trays pilfered from the dining halls and trudging 
through knee-deep snow. 

As the new semester began, weather caused occasional late openings. At the end of the 
second week of classes, however, a very powerful snowstorm hit the D.C. area. The university, 
in a rare move, announced that classes would be canceled Feb. 5 before a single flake hit the 
ground. The first flakes were spotted around 10 a.m.. and the blizzard hit with full force later that 

Local stores were emptied of their merchandise— essentials like paper towels, milk and 
eggs were difficult to find as students and local residents stocked up for what promised to be the 
storm of the century. 

Dubbed by some as "Snowpocalypse" or "Snowmageddon." the extraordinahly large snow- 
fall forced infrastructure to grind to a halt. Metro stopped running trains aboveground, making it 
difficult for students to get into Washington. D.C. Snow plows struggled in vain to keep ahead of 
the snow that fell for days on end. 

Stranded students made the most of a closed campus. On Saturday, Feb. 6 (day two of the 
Snowpocalypse). students organized a snowball fight on the mall between upperclassmen and 
underclassmen. An estimated 1 .000 students participated, lobbing snowballs at each other across 
sharply drawn front lines and leading charges into enemy territory. Several students were spotted 
on skis behind McKeldin Library. Others constructed snow sculptures and made snow angels. 

A second blizzard struck College Park on Tuesday evening, lasting through Wednesday 
night. This was the second blizzard in less than a week, and high winds and whiteout conditions 
made venturing out of doors a dangerous feat. In all, classes were canceled from Feb. 5 through 
Feb. 12. 

This seasons snowfall has been record-setting. Thus far. the D.C. area has received more 
snow than in the previous four winters combined. The previous record was set in the winter of 
1898-1899. when Washington. D.C. recorded 54.4 inches of snow. As of the morning of Feb. 10, 
2010. the capital had already received 49 inches with more snow in the forecast, placing the record 
within easy grasp. By 5 p.m., the century-old record had been broken, and snow continued to fall.
