Mechanical engineering senior Sam Hollenbach starts as the incumbent Terrapins football quarterback for the 2006 season while balancing mechanical engineering undergraduate coursework. This fall he is enrolled in ENME 361: Vibration, Control and Optimization, in pursuit of an automotive design emphasis to his mechanical engineering degree. Sam gets tutoring help from a Ph.D. student for his courses and maintains a 3.93 GPA. How does he do it? “I try to break down the test questions into what I feel comfortable with and what I need work on, and just do a lot of practice problems,” states Hollenbach. “It’s not uncommon for me to spend 7 or 8 hours of the day being up for a test studying.”

Kickoff for the first Terrapins football game on Saturday, September 2 against William and Mary is set for 6:05 p.m., from Chevy Chase Bank Field at Byrd Stadium. The game will be a televised taped delay by Comcast SportsNet, available online live pay per view on ESPN360 and broadcast on the Terrapin Sports Radio Network. Radio pregame starts at 4:30 pm.
