Geico gives UM auto insurance discount

Geico, a Washington, D.C.-based automobile insurance company, said it is partnering with the Atlantic Coast Conference to offer a discount on auto insurance to alumni, students, faculty and staff of current ACC member schools.

The University of Maryland is one of 12 college and university members of the ACC eligible for the discount.

Geico — which stands for Government Employees Insurance Co. — is the third-largest private passenger auto insurance company in the United States.

UM officials announced last November that the university will leave the ACC in July 2014 to become a member of the Big Ten Conference.
