It is flu and virus season and you may be aware that there were a number of cases of Adenovirus infections in students living on and off campus last semester and during break. Adenoviruses are common causes of colds, but there are strains that can cause more serious illness. It is important that our community takes this strain seriously.

Most universities schedule orientations for both first-time college students and parents/families to help them cope with the changes and demands of the freshman experience. However, the reality is that a child's departure to college affects all members of the family system--not only the student who is leaving and the parents/families who are letting them go--but also the siblings left behind.
UMD requires that all undergraduate students taking 6 or more credits have health insurance. Students are required to provide proof of health insurance by completing an on-line waiver once each academic year. Many students are covered on a family plan and do not need to purchase additional insurance from the university. Be sure your student completes the online waiver to prevent automatic enrollment in the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
Spring Break is upon us, and for many students the first collegiate Spring Break experience is a rite of passage.
