I Love the Hill Month


We all love the Hill for a variety of reasons – the beautiful rolling hills of Central Maryland, faculty who shaped our futures or friendships that last a lifetime.

I Love the Hill month is a celebration of all of those reasons, and we want you to be a part of it!



Last year, more than a thousand of you told us why you loved the Hill and we filled the windows of both Ensor Lounge and Klitzberg Pavilion. Please take a moment to share the love this year for all to enjoy.


Print this heart and tell us what you love about the Hill.

Download and print this I Love the Hill heart.

Mail your heart back to us at and we’ll display it on campus for others to enjoy!

Mail to: McDaniel College Office of Institutional Advancement, 2 College Hill, Westminster, MD 21157

Take a picture of yourself holding your heart and share it on social media with the hashtag #ilovethehill. Each week of February, we’ll randomly select one person to receive some I Love the Hill swag!
