When brainstorming names for a fashion/lifestyle publication at UMD, ‘monumental’ was one that kept coming to mind, given our proximity to Washington DC and all of its significant sights.

I wanted the name to have relevant meaning to our campus and to the publication, and I believe this term does. I believe the University of Maryland paves a path for its students, faculty and staff to do exceptionally great things.

My vision for this publication is to share those unique things, specifically in terms of fashion, beauty, lifestyle and entertainment, and also be a source of news in these areas.
