The Green Terror is more than a mascot. What is a Green Terror? It’s a lifestyle.

Living like a Green Terror means tackling every challenge head on and using every opportunity to go after your goals. And at McDaniel, you can do just that. Because whatever your place might be, you’ll find it on the Hill. We’re a community of individuals with unique talents, passions, and personalities, all collaborating, supporting one another, and coming together to live the McDaniel experience to the fullest.

One of the hallmarks of successful McDaniel students is that they jump in, getting involved in co-curricular and social activities that enhance their McDaniel experience. We encourage you to identify opportunities where you can make a difference and have fun, graduating with academic and leadership experiences that set you apart.

Commuter Student Resources

McDaniel College commuter students are integral members of our campus. Leaders in and out of the classroom, our commuters also find themselves holding jobs on campus and involved with many clubs and organizations — like the Commuter Student Association. We are dedicated to providing you with resources for a rewarding and rich experience as you earn your degree here on the Hill. 



150+ years in the making McDaniel Traditions

A college that is 150+ years old is going to have traditions. From ringing in the Old Main Bell as a first year student and tailgating on the hill, to returning as an alum and getting married in the chapel, McDaniel is a college full of a rich history. The Green Terror dates back to 1923, and has evolved from a football team nickname to the fuzzy green mascot you see today, with quite a few iterations in between! Come experience the Hill and all it has to offer!
