When you first stepped foot on campus, you became more than just a student. You became part of a Terp family -- a family that you met through your residence halls, your student organizations or your classes. Then, when you stepped across the stage during Commencement, you became part of a new Terp family, more than 361,000 strong. Wherever you take your next bold step, your Terp family is there to welcome you home.
