The M Book is back. The sometimes-stiff guide to the student experience at Maryland for generations of Terps was revived this fall for the Class of 2022—with fewer rules and a modern focus.M Book

From 1916 to 2001, freshmen turned to the M Book to figure out how to register for classes, learn the code of conduct and generally get a handle on the University of Maryland. It died after all this information moved online.

The new version was delivered to first-year students at the B1G Show, the Maryland Athletics kickoff that took place over Fall Welcome. First-year students who didn't receive a copy can pick one up at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center all week.

Commissioned by the Alumni Association, with support from the Division of Student Affairs and University Archives, the new M Book instead highlights Maryland’s past, present and future, with fun explanations of university traditions, can’t-miss events, landmarks and real-life advice from recent grads. (Timeless and essential example: Never pass up a free T-shirt.)
