Hey Terps - Looking for ways to get involved with your Alumni Association online? Grab one of the hashtags below and get posting on your Instagram feed or story. We select posts each week to be featured on our social channels. 

 

#UMAAxMe

#UMAAxMe is an all-purpose hashtag for alumni Terps. Use it to show us your best shots of Maryland's campus. Snap photos of the greater College Park area and show us your favorite spots and hidden gems. Share photos of you in your best Terp gear. Show us your football game memories, eating at the STAMP, attending an Alumni Association event, and more! We'll post the best photos (and credit you, of course), and feature you on our Instagram. Here's how you participate in five easy steps:

1. Make sure you're following us on Instagram.

2. Post your best UMD Campus and greater College Park photos to your Instagram feed. Friendly reminder to tag your friends and family in your posts.

3. Use both #UMAAxMe and #StayFearlessUMD, and tag us @maryland_alumni (this lets us know you want to be featured and gives us permission to use your content).

4. Tell us in your post caption what you love about the photo you've shared. Are you representing a network event? Are you a UMD Champion, or an Alumni Association member? Let us know, and tell us what you love about being a Maryland alum. You can get even more creative - tell us a fun fact about yourself, or a favorite UMD memory. We'll repost your caption along with your photo.

5. If selected, share your post on our feed with your Terp friends and family!

Need inspiration? Here's some ideas:

- Terp swag fashion show (what's your favorite Maryland hoodie?)

1. Make sure you're following us on Instagram.

2. Post your best photos from one of our Terp Trips intineraries to Instagram. We love shots with Testudo - a portable Testudo is included in each TerpTrips box, or take along a Testudo plushie.

3. Use both #TerpTrips and #StayFearlessUMD, and tag us @maryland_alumni (this lets us know you want to be featured and gives us permission to use your content).

4. Tell us in your post caption what you love about the spot you photographed, and what you love about being a Maryland alum. You can get even more creative - tell us a fun fact about yourself, or a favorite UMD memory. We'll repost your caption along with your photo.
