Testudo. The mascot of the University of Maryland, College Park since 1932, when football coach Dr. H. Curley Byrd recommended that the Diamondback Terrapin be made the school mascot. He has presided over McKeldin Mall since the 1960s when it was constructed. And he is the inspiration for our SAM t-shirts.
Here are the shirts!!! We think they look great, and we love the archive pun! We are selling the shirts for $20 at umd.ignitecx.com/sam16 to help raise money for our Americana Symposium in March. They can be shipped to your home for an extra $5, or picked up for free on campus at the beginning of March.
We hope everyone can support SAM and, of course, respect des fonds.
