On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email

The Maya and the End of Time

When: Monday, November 12, 2012 10:00 AM - Friday, February 01, 2013 10:00 AM
Where: Universities at Shady Grove Campus, Rockville : Priddy Libray
Event Type(s): Art Exhibition

This is a photographic exhibit about the ancient Mayans that illustrates their conceptions about time and space.
Thanks to the media, the Maya calendar has gained a lot of attention in the last few years and the 2012-end of times-phenomenon has created a growing misconception about the ancient Maya culture. The exhibit will explain academically backed information about Mayan mythology and its influence over their calendar and why 2012 is so important.
The exhibit will be up at the USG library from November 12, 2012 to February 1st, 2013.
