The University of Maryland University College announced Friday that it would lay off 70 employees — the latest problem to hit the school that caters to nontraditional students, including members of the military, the federal government and working adults. The layoffs, which began earlier this week, come as declining enrollments have triggered a loss of revenue. They will affect staff "across the board" in departments at the Adelphi and Largo campuses but not faculty members, UMUC spokesman Bob Ludwig said.

Ledo, a Washington-area landmark that has served its legendary square pizzas for almost 55 years, is moving next year from its original spot in a University Boulevard shopping center, just west of the University of Maryland, to College Park.

It is one of the great curiosities of Maryland higher education, right up there with that extra "s" in Johns Hopkins: Just where, exactly, is Adelphi? Adelphi is the impressive-sounding address of the University System of Maryland, invoking all the wisdom and authority of a Greek oracle. Administrators and faculty at 11 campuses refer to orders from "Adelphi" the way State Department staff speak of "Foggy Bottom" or the CIA refers to "Langley." As it turns out, though, the Adelphi address is somewhat of a fraud, if a well-intentioned one. And its invention is a telling tale of the emphasis that higher education often places on perception over reality.
