As you finish your studies, prepare your capstone projects or dissertations and/or study for finals, the 2022 University of Maryland's Model Citizenship Prize recipients Marjorie Justine Antonio and M Pease want to send a message of good luck and best wishes to all fellow Terps for Finals Week.

It’s Reading Day, Terps! It’s hard to believe that the last day of classes was yesterday.

As you finish your studies, prepare your capstone projects or dissertations and/or study for finals, the 2022 University of Maryland's Model Citizenship Prize recipients Marjorie Justine Antonio and M Pease want to send a message of good luck and best wishes to all fellow Terps for Finals Week.

This 2021-2022 year was the first in-person academic year since the global pandemic began, and as restrictions lifted, our spirits lifted, too. Campus events and activities provided an opportunity for us to be in community with each other once again. With commencement around the corner, I join Marjorie and M to remind Terps to rest, find joy, community and care.

For all graduating seniors and graduate students, remember that the University of Maryland will always be your home. Thanks for your contributions and come back often! For returning Terps, we simply cannot wait to see you in the fall semester. Have a beautiful summer!

With a big week ahead of you, remember that — You got this, Terps, and we’ve got you!
