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.

Nate Silver, author of the 2013-2014 First Year Book, The Signal and the Noise, is speaking on campus! Come hear him talk about politics, baseball, poker and the weather!
Prior to the 2008 election, Silver began making political predictions. Outperforming pundits, political insiders, and campaign strategists, Silver correctly predicted Obama's win in all but one state. He predicted the winners and losers in every Senate race. Again in the 2012 presidential election, Silver out-predicted the competition by successfully forecasting the presidential outcomes in all 50 states
