Global Terps

Show us what it means to be a Global Terp!

Our students at UMD and around the world are participating in cross-cultural exchange. Whether you are studying abroad, coming to campus as an international student or taking a Global Classrooms course this spring–you are gaining vital skills only achievable through global learning.

Host a takeover on the Maryland Global ( Instagram page and share what it means to be a Global Terp! To participate, you may choose to highlight a day-in-your-life or take photos and videos throughout the term to share highlights of your program or course during a takeover. Maybe you are meeting up with a language partner, seeing a baseball game with other exchange students or volunteering in our College Park community…show us how you study, explore and give back as a Global Terp!

After you complete your takeover, you will be entered into our raffle for one of two $50 Terrapin Express gift cards at the end of the summer term. The raffle will take place on August 28 and include takeovers between May 10-August 27, 2024. 

All students engaged in global learning at UMD are invited to participate. Please review the Office of International Affairs’s Social Media Guidelines & Expectations prior to participation.
