"We met on our first day of freshman year. Our first date was watching Maryland beat Duke in basketball—no better sign of a great Terps relationship than that! We had great memories at Maryland, which made it an easy decision to become Life Members and get married at the Riggs Alumni Center." - Greg Adelsberger '10 and Rachel Blair '10

"It was amazing to get married where we first met—surrounded by our Terp family! We loved our time at Maryland and appreciate it even more as alumni. This past summer we welcomed our first little Terp and look forward to staying involved with UMD as Lifetime Members." - Brittany Miller '09 and Derrick Larkins '11


“Visiting campus at 10 years old, I knew Maryland was the place for me. I fell in love with the university and worked hard to get into my dream school. Meeting Doug in the fall of ’62 reconfirmed my commitment to UMD. A combination of scholarships, loans and work on campus allowed me to attend, even though my parents said there was no college money for their girls.” - Gerda Sherwood ‘67 and Doug Sherwood '67
