Welcome to Terp Family
The Office of Parent & Family Affairs hosted the Department of Resident Life to engage families proactively in the event their student experiences roommate/community conflict. Staff spoke about how they assist students through their first roommate/community conflicts and shared their experience to help you help you student when they call home for advice.
Each year thousands of Terps and hundreds of employers collide at the largest career and internship fair of the year. The Career & Internship Fair hosts recruiters from a vast array of organizations looking to hire for full, part-time, internship and co-op positions in both tech and non-tech industries. With such a huge turnout of intelligent, ambitious and talented Terps, how can your Terp stand apart from the rest?
As the leaves continue to change and the cooler weather settles on campus, we are reminded that the Fall semester is halfway through and Thanksgiving break is right around the corner. When you talk with your student about academic progress, campus organizations they may have joined, registering for Spring semester classes, and the many aspects of college life, be sure to include alcohol use as part of your conversation.
Your student, along with eight million others, is immersed in four of the most important years of their life. It is a time that is both exciting and frightening—a period of joy, pain, discovery, and disappointment. With all that is learned and experienced, your student will no doubt leave the University of Maryland as a different person and, along the way, you will experience much of the same happiness and defeats as does your student.
