Campus Police Keep UMD Students Safe

Maryland basketball and rioting are synonymous with one another, especially since March of 2010 when students and police clashed following the victory over ACC-rival Duke. Three years later, Maryland defeated Duke once again in College Park, but the interaction between students and police was drastically different. The same ingredients existed in both cases — a big upset against Duke, students celebrating downtown and heavy police presence. So why was the celebration in 2013 so different than 2010?

Student athletes were given Ipads this semester out of the NCAA Student Athlete Opportunity Fund. This came as a shock to many athletes who had their sports cut the previous year due to UMD’s financial trouble. The school spent $300,000 on the Ipads, but they insist this money could not have gone toward the other sports because of the funds restrictions. Either way it has many students angered over the free luxury item.

While some students go home for spring break, many travel to places with warm weather such as Mexico or Miami to party on the beach in their bathing suits. About a month before that week of fun, boys and girls must buckle down and hit the gym to shed as many calories as they can to look their best. This means that the gym is more packed than usual, especially after classes during the peak hours, and students sometimes have to wait as long as half an hour to get on an elliptical.
