This is a unique opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students (and allies closely involved in LGBT groups) to learn about careers and internships in the federal government (foreign service, military, agencies, White House, etc.), and also to meet LGBTQ college students from across the DC area. There will be remarks from John Berry, the highest ranking openly-gay official to ever work in the executive branch of the U.S. government. The RSVP deadline for UMD students is by the end of Tuesday, April 3, 2012. Although there are a good number of spaces available for UMD to have a substantial contingent, the space is limited at a point. To RSVP, you should know the following:
  • You must be a University of Maryland, College Park student (undergrad or grad). Please include your UID number in your RSVP email.
  • You must make sure you can attend the ENTIRE event before you RSVP. Check on your courses and other obligations BEFORE committing.
  • You must completely fill out the security information (including your email and phone number) in the attached spreadsheet, and this information needs to match the government issued ID you are bringing to enter the building.
To RSVP, send Nick Sakurai (sakurai@umd.edu) an email with your request to hold a spot, your UID number, along with the attached spreadsheet filled as required by the White House for entry to this event. First come, first served. You will hear back on Monday or Tuesday if there was a space for you or if you were added to a wait list, and then further details will follow. We will compile your RSVP's and send on your security information to our White House contact. Please also note that as lunch is not provided, you will need to either pack a lunch or bring some cash.

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.
