parking..again [May. 15th, 2009|06:56 pm]
College Park

A person potentially (supposedly definitely) is subleasing my place for two months this summer. Where can he park (overnight, all the time, etc)?
Or just from 5PM-7AM and weekends??

He is not a UMD student, he has a job near here (he already asked his boss they can't do anything about it)
My apartment can't offer him parking

We were thinking about me getting a permit in my name and passing it to him...but for summer permits, do they ask for license plates? Driver's license? Think we'll get caught?

Parking! [May. 12th, 2009|07:18 pm]
College Park

I need to drive to campus tomorrow. I have to be on campus with my butt in class at 3:50PM (yes, 3:50, yes I know it's study day, I have class). I don't expect to be out of that class until at least 7:30, could go as long as 8. I can't just walk out -- we might get a quick break but I'm not positive if we will, the class is in Taliaferro. Meters are 3hrs, the earliest lots that I know of (I checked the ) website start free parking at 4. No I positively cannot get to class at 4:05PM on this particular day...

So basically, where can I park? I don't think I can park in those lots because knowing them, they'd ticket, right? Rt 1 has 2hr meters??

And no i don't want a pay lot because that'd be $8

just seeing what my options are thanks in advance.

college park haircut$ [May. 12th, 2009|09:15 am]
College Park

I usually get my hair cut back home where it's like 9 dollars but I am too impatient. That being said, I am looking for a college park haircut under 20 bucks, I know many would suggest FLOYD'S or SUPERCUTS, but I also don't want to worry about being late for my first day of fall classes next semester with how long the waits seem to be at those places. Is there like an off peak time? I was thinking about maybe going between noon-2pm between classes. Any comments/suggestions?

thanks in advance.

Swine Flu Information [Apr. 28th, 2009|10:19 am]
College Park

The following is an email sent out to the UMD community by Vice President Linda Clement - sbarone@umd.edu - which I am reposting for those of us who never read those UMD mass mails. I do so under no authority but my own.

To the University of Maryland Community:

As many of you are now hearing, a strain of the swine influenza type A 
(H1N1) has been identified in the United States. The virus, known 
informally as the "swine flu," has been diagnosed in a few human cases 
reported in Kansas, California, Texas, New York and Ohio. There are no 
reported cases yet in the state of Maryland. We have been monitoring the 
situation very carefully to determine if further steps should be taken, 
and we will continue to do so for the next few days.

Over the past three years, the University of Maryland has developed a 
well-conceived response and action plan in the case of a flu pandemic. 
That plan has been reviewed by a number of international health 
authorities and has been vetted by our University's senior leadership. 
For details about the plan, visit:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the 
symptoms of swine flu in people are expected to be similar to the 
symptoms of regular human seasonal influenza and include fever, 
lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing.  Some people with swine flu 
also have reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

In the meantime, the University of Maryland Health Center urges you to 
take some simple preventive steps that will decrease the possibility of 
contracting the virus, including:


-Cover your mouth with a tissue when you sneeze or cough, and throw the 
tissue in the trash after you use it;

-Call your doctor if you have respiratory symptoms and you have reason 
to believe you have been exposed to a case of the swine flu;

-Have your personal/family preparedness plan in place and ready to activate;

-Follow the news and stay aware of new swine flu developments.

For more details from our University Health Center, visit:  

You may also contact the University Health Center at 301.314.8180.

You may also go the website of the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention for more detailed information about the swine flu:  

Sincerely yours,

Linda M. Clement
Vice President for Student Affairs

Hello! I promised to post this for Rachel, so here you go. Please email her at rmccann@umd.edu if you are interested. (The 4/4 's are amazing, by the way.)

I have people emailing me every day, so if you are looking and it turns out Rachel found someone, please shoot me an email (or a comment).

My name is Rachel, and I plan to lease my apartment out for the summer. The Courtyards sent me your name as someone who is interesting in living at the Courtyards over the summer. I live in a 4 bedroom/4 bathroom apartment. If you are still interested, please let me know.

Commons Lease 09-10 [Apr. 22nd, 2009|11:34 am]
College Park

[Current Mood |anxiousanxious]

Hey guys! I'm living in Commons now and signed a lease for next year, but now I want to live off campus. I have nothing against the apartment; it's lovely and I'd be happy to live here for another year if my friends could live here with me. I want to move out in May, so you can have the apartment for the summer as well as all of next year. It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in Building 6. The girls who live here for the summer are really nice and the other girls moving in next year look nice from their facebooks, at least (yes, I'm a stalker).
I know lots of people didn't get priority numbers good enough to get into Commons or didn't fill out forms in time, so this is a second chance for you! Please let me know if you or anyone you know might be interested in this.

Hey, I was wondering how long commencement ceremonies generally last?
My question is for the small college one (I'm in Foreign Languages but an approximation will do) and also for the big one. Thanks..

Room for the Summer and Question About KNES [Apr. 17th, 2009|12:38 pm]
College Park
There is a SPACIOUS ROOM available from May 20 to August 28 on St. Andrews (past Courtyards off Metzerott). It's a very CLEAN and QUIET ranch-style (one level plus basement; room is on main level) house with hardwood floors, a sun room, and no pets. There are currently 4 guys and me (a girl) living in the house, so it's co-ed. You'll share a bathroom with one guy, who isn't messy. The landlord is nice, and the dates are flexible. Leave a comment if you're interested.

On an unrelated note, I'm thinking about taking Beginner's Weight Training, KNES157N, and I'm female. Does anyone know how intimidating the atmosphere of the class is? Has anyone taken it?
