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

Arboretum Walk -- Green Wall on Campus

When: Wednesday, May 08, 2013 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM
Where: south side of Animal Sciences Building adjacent to lot KK : outdoors
Event Type(s): Recreation

With a grant from the UMD Sustainability Fund, graduate student Scott Tjaden is installing our first campus green wall on the South side of the ENST/Animal Science building. The purpose of a green fa├žade is to add a layer of vine-based vegetation on an installed structure that helps to shield a building from solar heat gain resulting in less cooling of the interior space during the summer season, when the plants are in their peak. The greenery will also add to the urban setting, while helping to reduce noise and air pollution surrounding the building. Scott himself will lead the tour.
