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 UMDevents@umd.edu.


Adult Runners Needed for Pilot Study

Where: AV Williams
Event Type(s): Other

Do you run? Do you run in groups? We need your help! In our study, we are looking for existing groups of runners (3 or more) to assist us as volunteers in a research project exploring e-textile athletic jerseys.

Specifically, we have designed and constructed prototype athletic jerseys that communicate running information such as pace, duration, and distance via a live, wearable display. As a participant, your role is to help us better understand how these jerseys impact your sense of the run activity and the runners around you.

Participants will be reimbursed $20 per hour for their time. Study sessions will be conducted on the University of Maryland, College Park campus or, in some cases, at a specific physical location of your choice. All participants must be 18 years of age or older and be an active runner. Apart from that restriction, we encourage people of all genders and ethnicities to participate.
