Throughout all human history, languages have influenced and impacted one another in a series of gentle encounters and violent collisions, leading to some truly complex and truly bizarre linguistic phenomena. Some of these phenomena involve the “borrowing” or “loaning” of a word from one language into another, either perfectly translated or slightly modified to change pronunciation, meaning, or connotation of the word(s). Many words that you use everyday are, likely, not English at all (or, at least, were something very different before they were English).

I Love the Hill Day

I Love The Hill Day is a one-day effort to inspire our alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff to give back to McDaniel College.

Our goal is simple - to see 250 (or more!) donors come together in just one day to support areas of greatest need at McDaniel. Your gift can go even farther with special fundraising challenges and matches throughout the day. And if we reach our goal of 250 donors by midnight, we can unlock an additional $15,000 of support from members of our Board of Trustees!
