A Celebration Of Terps
Did You Know?
Your Alumni Association started 30 years ago, occupying one room at the Rossborough Inn. In 1986, the Alumni Association got its start when the Maryland General Assembly realized the unique nature of our land-grant mission and allowed each institution to create its own alumni association. Today, we operate from the state-of-the-art Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center—we’ve come a long way in 30 years!
