Terps Touring Alaska

"Samantha Baker ’97 and her husband, Rob Baker ’96, are seasoned travelers. They’ve explored the Caribbean several times on large cruise lines and visited every state in the U.S., often with their sons, Josh and Zack, in tow. But in 2017, they wanted a different kind of vacation – one where they could not only escape the heat and humidity that comes with Maryland summers but also travel easily with an older adult and delve into local cultures and activities."

"What TV-bingeing Terps might not realize, though, is just how many fellow University of Marylanders they’ve virtually invited into their living rooms—as actors, directors, producers and writers of some bona fide favorites, promising pilots and cult classics." Whether you’re diving into a new show or revisiting an old standby, Maryland Today has created the ultimate Terp TV guide for future viewing."
