2. Quotables

Alumnae Igniting Change Panel

- Empowering Alumnae Igniting Change

"On March 14, 2022, in celebration of Women’s History Month, members of the UMD community had the opportunity to hear from three driven alumnae working to make an impact in the nonprofit world. Partnering with the Do Good Institute, a campus group working to educate students on having a social impact, the Student Alumni Leadership Council (SALC) moderated the Women Igniting Change Panel, creating a platform for these women to share their experiences, lessons and takeaways from their work." Brian Spates '22, Alumni Blog.

- Terp After Terp (After Terp After Terp After Terp)

"Terp families are as common as Maryland flag-themed gear or tins of Old Bay around here. Some students have grandparents who flirted over ice cream at the University of Maryland Dairy, while a few parents visit their freshmen in the same North Campus residence hall they once lived in."

- Edward Maclary to Retire After Two Decades of Shaping Choral Activities at UMD

"Edward Maclary considered his career as a professor and a conductor to be a mix of two things: great teachers and dumb luck. As a kid, when he tried to get out of his high school marching band, he found himself attracted to choir, which his mentors and teachers only ever encouraged."
