All faculty, staff and students are welcome! Come on out -- proudly wearing your Terrapin red -- to take part in the photo and video that will be included in this year's electronic holiday card. The card is emailed to hundreds of thousands of the University's alumni and friends around the world and helps keep them connected to the campus.

To get us in the holiday spirit a bit early, the first 500 people on the front steps will receive a free t-shirt that you can wear during the videotaping. Cookies will also be provided.

#MerrillUMD Lecturer Josh Davidsburg's class focused on the #NavyYardShooting in Washington, D.C. today. The students all got their initial information via social media and continued to follow the story that way throughout the day. Josh talked with his students about the use of Twitter as a news headline service, why the local and national media continue to report the same information over and over, and the difficulty of covering news when the information is rapidly changing - even when it comes from the police or other public agencies. Great discussion about a very sad event.
