Basically, this is a community forum for anybody who's interested in or attends UMBC, an Honors University in Maryland and also a HOT school according to Newsweek and Kaplan. If you join for the sole purpose of SPAM-ing or advertising bars/clubs, don't bother.
Elaboration of LJ-Cut Policy (3/7/05): LJ-cut anything that's "off-topic", related to "politics and society", or uses a large picture; for the LJ-cut text, have it read: "Politics and Society - [insert text here, giving a brief one sentence synopsis of the content of your post]" or "Off-Topic: [same drill]". Or "Advertisement: [Event, Time, Date or a one sentence synopsis of the content of the post]". In other words - seriously LJ cut where/when appropriate.
Any official UMBC production or school sponsored event may be advertised without the LJ-cut; school sponsored events include stuff held by academic or athletic departments, etc...
* Links and website promotion are allowed for Students, Alumni, Staff, and other affiliated people but let's not let it get out of hand. * As always, anything deemed inappropriate will be removed; moderators reserve the right to remove entries and/or posts and/or anything otherwise specified as irrelevant or distasteful.
Ask yourself "What would Freeman do?" if you're not sure. (Think of this community as a reflection of the people who go to UMBC.)
