Autumn on the Hill

July 28, 2009

There’s nothing quite like fall on the Hill. The red, amber and golden hues of autumn replace green – except of course for the green in Green Terror. It’s a time to get back to academics for sure, but it’s also a great time to tailgate, reunite with college friends, and catch up with McDaniel students who left home just a few months earlier.

All the details aren’t yet complete, but here are some important dates to mark on your calendars now. Look for more after the academic year begins on August 24.

Families Weekend – a perfect time to learn about what student life is all about – kicks off on Saturday, Oct. 3. Look for a full day of activities, including tailgating on the rim of McDaniel’s famed drive-in stadium as the Green Terror takes on Juniata College. The men’s soccer team also plans a win against Washington College, while the field hockey and women’s soccer teams battle Swarthmore College. The McDaniel College Theatre presents “The Rocky Horror Show” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 3.

Homecoming on Oct. 24 features the now famous noon parade of floats moving along Main Street before Green Terror football takes on Ursinus College at 1 p.m. Enjoy taking a stroll around campus and visit the Klitzberg Pavilion to view this year’s Sports Hall of Fame inductees on the e-kiosk.

McDaniel Theatre presents “The Rocky Horror Show” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 30 – Oct. 3 in WMC Alumni Hall.

Home football games are Sept. 5 against St. Vincent, Sept. 19 against Catholic, Oct. 3 against Juniata, Oct. 24 against Ursinus, Oct. 31 against F&M and Nov. 14 against Johns Hopkins.

Other important dates:

  • August 19 – move-in day for new students
  • August 19-23 – orientation for new students
  • Aug. 22-23 – residence halls open for returning students
  • August 24 – classes begin
  • Oct. 12-13 – fall break, no classes
