Governor Martin O'Malley singled out Salisbury University students for their enthusiasm during Maryland Student Lobby Day recently in Annapolis.

An estimated 150 students rallied on the steps of Lawyer's Mall, thanked the Governor for his support of higher education in Maryland and urged legislators to pass his higher education budget intact. The Governor has proposed $1.2 billion for the University System of Maryland (USM), including more than $34 million in new enhancement monies, the first in five years.

The students were joined by leaders of several USM institutions, including SU's Dr. Janet Dudley-Eshbach and the presidents of the University of Maryland College Park, University of Maryland Baltimore, University of Maryland University College, University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Coppin State University. Other speakers, besides the Governor, were Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, Chancellor William "Brit" Kirwan, Senator Richard Madaleno (chair of the Senate Education, Business and Administration Budget and Tax Subcommittee) and USM student regent-elect Samim Manizade, from Salisbury University.

Students were decked out in USM-colored T-shirts (yellow, red and black) that said "Invest in US(M)," designed at SU.

According to Robby Sheehan, director of government relations, SU had the largest – and loudest – group of students at the rally, and the Governor noted their "swagger." Their day included morning sessions in the House and Senate, meetings with representatives such as Delegate Norman Conway and Senator Jim Mathias, and a special luncheon for the Hanna Scholars (legislative interns) with benefactors Henry and Dara Hanna. That afternoon they attended a meeting of Madaleno's subcommittee, where they heard their President deliver legislative testimony on behalf of SU.
