ABC’s of UMD: Letter Z

Not a lot of Z’s on campus, except for napping students catching some here and there, so we chose the ZOOLOGY-PSYCHOLOGY Building, now known as Biology-Psychology, as the final feature in our ABC’s of UMD  series.

Considering how confusing it is to navigate through the building, we would not be surprised in the least…

Bio-Psych is now home to the departments of Biology and Psychology, the President’s Commission on Ethnic Minority Issues, the Program in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science, and the Sustainable Development and Conservation Biology Program.

This is the 26th and final post in our series on Terrapin Tales called ABC’s of UMD! If you want to learn more about campus history, you can view the previous posts on our blog and visit our encyclopedia University of Maryland A to Z: MAC to Millennium for more UMD facts.
