CoverColor

Please support our project to publish and print the 2015-16 UMD Disorientation Guide. This zine holds the keys to information about our campus and our communities that university-directed orientations don’t want students to see. Help students get the information that really counts by making a small contribution or sharing our fundraising link with friends. All $$$ collected will go to printing costs for the guide which will be handed out free!
