"[My mentor] is super nice and helpful. She offers to help me pass my resume to her peers in different firms. I had a great time talking to her and she helped me get a better understanding of the consulting industry." - Maya '17

Show Your Terp Pride

1. Participate in the Senior Class Gift Initiative

Terp Alum Tassel Charm

Leave your legacy and be a part of Maryland’s senior class gift tradition. Contribute a one time, $10 donation to the senior class gift fund and receive a custom Terp Alum tassel charm to wear at all Commencement activities. Students who participate will also be recognized at the Main Commencement Ceremony in May.

All proceeds from the class gift will go towards the Keep Me Maryland Fund, which provides emergency funding to students who are at risk of leaving the university due to unmet financial need. This fund was selected by a group of your Class of 2024 peers.

2. Order your diploma frame

Earning a degree from the University of Maryland is a major milestone and a distinctive honor that deserves to be celebrated. The Alumni Association is proud to exclusively partner with Dormify to offer you a customized University of Maryland diploma frame to honor this accomplishment.
