A GUIDE TO THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE AT M A RY L A N D


INTRODUCTION

You’re holding the M Book—a guide to the student experience at Maryland. From 1916 to 2001, firstyear students turned to the M Book to figure out how to register for classes, learn the code of conduct and generally get a handle on the University of Maryland. It fizzled out after all this information moved online.

Now, the M Book is back—with fewer rules and a modern focus. In these pages, you’ll instead find Maryland’s past, present and future, and your future, too. Get the backstory on university traditions. Memorize the fight song’s lyrics. Follow real-life advice from recent grads. (Important: Never pass up a free T-shirt.) Take pride in the accomplishments of Terp alumni. Become a part of Maryland’s legacy of fearlessness.

Watch out! Located in the pavement between Shoemaker and LeFrak Halls, the lines shooting out from this circle in the pavement point to all of the buildings that existed here at the time of the 1912 fire, two of which were destroyed. According to legend, a student who steps on the point where the lines intersect won’t graduate in four years.

Need a quiet moment? Head inside the nondenominational chapel or take a walk through the garden labyrinth. Jot a few thoughts in one of the journals stored under the benches there.

M C K E L D I N M A L L /O D K F O U N TA I N KISSING TUNNEL

Located under Regents Drive, this tunnel used to attract Terp couples looking for a private smooching spot.

From a hammock or the lawn, take in the hustle and bustle on the mall, stretching across 16.28 acres and often cited as the biggest of its kind on a university campus. The fountain in the middle celebrates members of the Omicron Delta Kappa honor society.

The Nyumburu Cultural Center is the hub of AfricanAmerican culture on campus, hosting musical performances, art exhibits, lectures and more.

For decades, Cole was the home of Maryland basketball. Now undergoing a reimagining, it’ll soon be home to a living laboratory where researchers and athletes will work together to advance the science of sport.

Since 1949, researchers have braved the Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel to learn more about aerodynamics. With wind speeds up to 230 miles per hour, the wind tunnel has been instrumental in experiments involving submarines, battleships, missiles, airplanes and more.

Connect with umd’s roots as the Maryland Agricultural College at our working farm and unconventional classroom, where horses, sheep and dairy cows live just steps away from residence halls and academic buildings.


30 PG


Traditions link Maryland students from generation to generation—sort of a conga line of Terps. Some of these uniquely UMD

experiences live

on today, while others have taken their place in university history. Either way, they’re what make our university so special.

31 PG


TRADITIONS

R U B B I N G T E S T U D O ’ S N O S E A N D L E AV I N G H I M O F F E R I N G S It’s the quintessential Maryland tradition. Sit outside McKeldin Library for just a minute or two, and you’ll see at least a few passersby reach out and rub the nose of the most popular bronze Testudo statue (we have seven!). It’s said to bring good luck—as is leaving Testudo offerings during finals. Food, drinks and coins are typical gifts, but furniture, a potted plant and even a robot have been left at Testudo’s feet.

33 PG


TRADITIONS

S U N B AT H I N G AT T H E S TA D I U M The scorching bleachers at what is now Maryland Stadium were a literal hotspot for socializing and sunbathing on hot days in the 1970s and ’80s.

TRADITIONS

C L A S S WA R S/ K I N G O F T H E M O U N TA I N Beginning in the days when the University of Maryland was known as the Maryland Agricultural College, first-year students and sophomores took each other on in so-called class wars, attempting feats of physical strength like tug-of-war and “King of the Mountain,� in which they climbed a 120-foot water tower on campus.

37 PG


TRADITIONS

B E A N I E S From the 1910s through the 1960s, first-year students were required to wear beanies—“rat caps” for men and “rabbit caps” for women—at all times on campus. They looked as fashionable as they sound.

38 PG

A dive into old M Books reveals rules and tips for life on campus that are so wildly outdated that you’ll be forgiven for suspecting we made these up. We didn’t. Along with those snippets, you’ll get glimpses of today’s University of Maryland experience in all its vibrant, Testudo—loving glory. So take a glance at some of what the next four years have in store for you. 111 PG

“If you must drive, arrive at your assigned lot early. Dawn is a little extreme; five minutes before your noon class is sheer folly. Be advised that the first two weeks of classes is the worst time for traffic because everyone is here all the time.�

F ROM T HE 1953 M BOOK “To be safe and sure of the best wardrobe, buy carefully and tastefully. Avoid that pale champagne cashmere with rhinestone and pearl trimming and look for easy-to-care-for pullovers to match your skirts. If you aren’t sure of the best in college fashions, avoid buying all of your clothes until after you have returned to school for a week or two, and check on what the upper class, experienced gal goes for.”

F ROM T HE 1972 M BOOK “Eating in a University dining hall is probably the easiest way to plan for meals if you’re living on campus. And, if you don’t have time to eat, the dining hall will fix you a packed lunch. But don’t expect a home cooked meal. Since the food is prepared in huge quantities, quality is lacking. Don’t be surprised if you gain weight. The food is starchy, and your meal ticket allows you to eat as much as you want. The food is monotonous, but occasionally there are exceptionally good meals, such as nationality and holiday dinners.”
