Third-Party Descriptions

December 2012: "we are in the midst of a dizzying, nauseating game of Conference Jump, where colleges and universities—once determined to maintain geographic rivals in order to limit student travel—have lost their collective minds. The University of Maryland, a charter member of the ACC, is headed for the Big Ten."

http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/14/opinion/pearlman-western-kentucky-petrino/index.html

June 2010: "The University of Maryland, whose full annual in-state cost averages about $22,000 in tuition, fees and living expenses, pledges to meet that figure through grant aid and work-study for students at the poverty level. The university also promises full grant aid for seniors once they have accumulated $15,900 in need-based loans, minus any other aid they have received."
