Dear Terrapin Community,
The past several months have been difficult for our university. As the Executive Director of your Alumni Association, I want to assure you that the health, safety and well-being of our students is of the utmost importance; and the Alumni Association remains wholly committed to continuing our mission of advancing both alumni and the university as a whole.
I hope you have had time to read President Loh’s messages to our community from October 30 and October 31. Both contain important information about our university’s path forward.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Maryland. I encourage you to stay informed, stay connected and stay active with the university and your Alumni Association.
Amy Eichhorst
Executive Director
University of Maryland Alumni Association
