We are so excited to see the campus bustling again for this new academic year! We can’t wait for all of you to come and visit us for your researching needs in Hornbake Library!
We thought it might be a great time to share some of our old photographs of students from years past. In our collections, we have pictures from all different aspects of student life on campus. You can see more photographs from our collections on Flickr or on Digital Collections UMD.
Here are a few of our favorites from over the years:
The student marching band takes a break during practice on Chapel Field in 1958.
The Women’s Recreation Association sponsored intramural sports tournaments for Maryland co-eds needing a study break or some competitive fun. In this semi-final game of a basketball tournament, the ladies of Delta Gamma score 2 points on the way to beating the ladies of Gamma Phi in 1959.
These students, oddly enough, are eyeing a suspended ham in the Maryland Agricultural College barracks in 1902!
These are some freshman at orientation in 1960!
Here are some women hanging out in the women’s dorms in 1960!
Take a look at the UMD football team from 1899!
