|Little Courtney Waiting To Grow Into Her Terrapin Shell|
This photo was taken at the Baltimore Zoo some time around 1994/1995. Clearly, back then, I had no intentions of going to UMD. I was far too busy playing Barbies and watching movies to even know what my future would hold.
For those of you who don't know, UMD's mascot is a Diamondback Terrapin named Testudo. He's pretty awesome. He's much cooler than a Blue Hen or an Orange Blob!
Here at UMD we take Testudo very seriously. You can find him at almost any event: anything from Basketball games to prestigious alumni functions. We even leave him offerings every time midterms and finals role around.
