Diagramming her first Punnett squares back in seventh grade, new freshman Morgan Robinson got hooked on molecular genetics. “Little did I know that as the most basic form of learning genetics out there.” In high school, Robinson and a team of classmates collaborated with Rutgers and Johns Hopkins University researchers in a study on the viability of landoltia punctata, a type of duckweed, as a source of ethanol. The team isolated messengerRNA from the plant and analyzed its DNA sequence, and its findings were published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information database. At Maryland, Robinson will participate in the Gemstone Honors program and was attracted to the university by its biological sciences major; she’ll specialize in cell biology and genetics.

New freshman Madison Silver has united tennis great Chris Evert, rapper and entertainer Vanilla Ice and former NFL player Jason Taylor in support of one cause: curing ALS. In 2010, Silver’s aunt, Marjie Berman Block, was diagnosed with the neurological disease; since then, Silver and her family have raised more than $130,000 to research a cure for the disease through several projects, including a call for “slam videos,” in which Evert has power-hit a tennis ball, Vanilla Ice has sledgehammered an ice sculpture and Taylor has slammed a football to the ground, all while donating to the cause and challenging others to do the same. “I hope that we can get more people from Maryland involved,” says Silver, who plans to major in communication.

In the time it takes most of us to get dressed, incoming freshman Pavan Ravindra can solve a Rubik’s Cube. One-handed. Ravindra, who plans to double major in biological sciences and computer science while participating in the Honors College, last year held the national title in this niche competition. He unscrambled the device five times at an average 11 seconds, with a top speed of 9.26 seconds. Ravinindra solved his first Rubik’s Cube in fourth grade, then put it aside for five years until he met a classmate who could do it in 15 seconds. That teen showed him a few tricks, and by the end of the school year, Ravindra could beat him. But the secret to his speed and dexterity is no trick it all: “It just means three hours a day of practice.”

As a high school junior, new UMD freshman Amina Lampkin moved to D.C. to live with 29 other students and get a crash course in national politics as a U.S. Senate page, representing U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut. Lampkin learned how the government works, how people live in other parts of the country and that she’s interested in a writing career, perhaps as a speechwriter or journalist—inspiring her to come to UMD to major in journalism.

It’s not a big leap for new freshman Christina Kratzmeier to come to Maryland. A math and biochemistry major in the University Honors program from Howard County, she’s been a national jump-rope competitor for nearly a decade. She’s shown off her skill and agility as an individual and on double-dutch teams every year at the Junior Olympic Games and USA Jump Rope National Championships, winning a pile of gold medals. In addition, Kratzmeier has performed at countless shows, including health fairs, community events, the 2013 and 2015 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parades, and even college basketball halftime shows for eight years—including at the University of Maryland. “I know everyone probably says this, but Maryland just always felt right to me, and I’m so happy to spend the next four years here.”
