Letter: Heartbeat of green and gold

This weekend marks the 150th anniversary of McDaniel College, formerly known as Western Maryland College. Since the students have returned to school, flags have flown from businesses and residences alike proudly showing their support of this milestone. As the daughter of a professor emeritus and alumni; and the spouse of an alumnus, I have fond memories of attending Homecoming and other various activities at the college. Shouldn't we as a community embrace the gift of having a thriving institution steps from downtown? I have been mulling over thoughts for some time to help solidify and embrace the relationship between McDaniel and the City of Westminster. I envision a time where green and gold will reign; flags lined on flagpoles and businesses, proudly displayed as students and residents alike walk in harmony along the streets.

We as a city need to help make Westminster into a stronger college town. There has been a lot of discussion surrounding Ting and MAGIC in Westminster. As an information technology professional, I believe we should utilize MAGIC as an existing resource to help develop an application that would be used by both residents and students. The application could assist students with getting to know Westminster as well as help residents instill a sense of pride in our community.

Ensuring a mutually beneficial relationship between the community and McDaniel College will institute a pulse that may become the heartbeat of our city. It is imperative that we continue to drive the recent momentum in Westminster. By populating our streets and businesses with new faces and bright minds we will mold our community and create a mindset that Westminster is a great college town.
