Welcome to the Friday Five, a roundup of the best your Alumni Association and other UMD communities have to offer. From the latest events to fun facts, here are essentials in five categories for you to check out this weekend.

1. What's Happening
Terps in Your Town

- Terps in Your Town: Florida - Feb. 16 and 17

The Alumni Association is heading on the road and visiting a city near you! Join fellow Florida Terps to commemorate reaching our ambitious $1.5 billion goal for Fearless Ideas: The Campaign for Maryland. Share your passion for Maryland and celebrate boldness, curiosity and a spirit of discovery while hearing about exciting updates on campus from Amy Eichhorst, associate vice president, alumni and donor relations and executive director of the Alumni Association.  Heavy hors d'oeuvres, beer and wine will be served. Terps in Your Town events will take place in Boca Raton and Naples

 

2. Quotables

- Rising Terp Award: Akash Magoon '18 

"But his most fearless idea came in 2019—the year he co-founded Nayya, a company that helps employees choose and enroll in health benefits and then engage with their health plans. Workforces are diverse, and the insurance plans and benefits companies offer their employees are becoming more and more complex, Magoon said." Allison Eatough '97, Alumni BlogREAD MORE
