10 Gifts for the New UMD Student

Did someone you love just get accepted into the University of Maryland? Congrats to that person, whether it’s a child, a cousin, a friend or a sibling! They’ve got an amazing college career ahead of them, and that’s why they deserve a gift to show them how proud you are. So what should you get? We’ve got a few ideas:

UMD Logo Tumbler

Staying hydrated is important, especially when they’re a new college student running from class to class! Luckily, it’s easy to get all that water when you give them this tumbler. 

2 UMD Turtles White Shades

Their future’s so bright, they’ve gotta wear shades -- like these UMD turtle white shades that will make them look pretty dang cool. 

UMD Terrapins Athletic Headband

If they’re an athlete, they’re going to want to keep their hair up and out of the way. This UMD red headband is a great way to do that with style as they take advantage of the campus gym! 

4 UMD Terps Retro Shirt

A retro tee is a great way to stand out from the crowd of other students who are also wearing UMD shirts -- this one has some vintage flair, and it’s bound to become one of their new most-worn items. 

UMD Flag Crew Socks

Socks were no fun to get as a kid, but now, your loved one is going to be able to appreciate these beauties (and they’ll have something to wear to keep their feet warm). 

UMD Terps Shell Black & Gold Scarf

A Terps scarf is ideal for those crisp autumn days -- this one’s got the same bright colors as the trees (and as the state of Maryland, too!). The easiest way to take your look from drab to fab! 

UMD Neon Green Crest Shirt

Even if their nights are filled with studying instead of going out, which is what they promised you, they can still take the party everywhere they go (like the library) with this neon green crest shirt! 

University of Maryland Slip On Shoes

With all the running around they’ll be doing, they’ll need a sturdy pair of shoes, like these slip-ons, to keep up! And the gorgeous logo design doesn’t hurt either. 


University of Maryland Terrapins Grey Shorts

Going for a run or heading to the gym will be a no-brainer with these shorts. All your loved one will need to do is throw these on, put on deodorant, and they’ll be all set to get fit. 

10 Turtle Shell Keychain

They can take a little bit of UMD pride with them everywhere they go, even if they’re home, on vacation, or studying abroad. And it’s a great souvenir for after graduation, too!
