Your Chance to Make History at BSOS...

BSOS Students,

There is an amazing, new opportunity to share your University-related experiences with your fellow classmates, and to help new incoming students learn about what it means to be a Terp. The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) is preparing to launch a new, interactive website featuring all student-created content and media.

Students throughout the College will be able to choose any topic, relating either to their student or academic lifestyle, and create an article, video, podcast, or photo-diary to be posted on the site. This can include everything from helpful tips to personal stories, such as:

* Getting through your first semester at College
* Participating in campus groups
* Being a student-athlete
* Celebrating your first birthday at UMD

This website will become a valuable information & entertainment resource for students who relate to many of these shared challenges and experiences that define University life. Because this is a brand new project, you have the opportunity to make history within our College. The stories and media you contribute will be shared with thousands of incoming BSOS students, allowing them to experience the diversity, creativity, thoughtfulness, and excellence that make our Terps unique.


We invite you to take a look at the suggested list of topics, and let us know what you would like to contribute. The deadline for content submission is May 1st.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to make history and create a unique, entertaining, and valuable resource for your fellow Terps! We are happy to answer any questions about the appropriateness of different topics and/or media types.
