Have you noticed the tents being erected on McKeldin Mall? Mysterious preparations going on in other parts of campus?
This Saturday is Maryland Day, which is the university's annual community day, when the campus is open to everyone and anyone to come and see what the University of Maryland is all about. There will be games, exhibits, performances, food, music, demonstrations, dance, children's activities and more. It's a wonderful opportunity for all to experience the university in all its diversity. Even those of us who live, work, and/or study here cannot begin to know all of what goes on here. It's a fascinating place! I hope you will take a few hours off from studying this Saturday to come and join the fun. You can get a sense of what it's all about from this website. I hope to see you there!
P.S. MEI's Intensive English Program will participate with tables in the Global Village area, Hornbake Plaza.
P.P.S. Even though rain is forecast for the next few days, it's supposed to be nice on Saturday.
P.P.P.S. Last year, I touched a live tarantula on Maryland Day! Yes, really!
