I am writing in regard to Childs Walker 's excellent article ("Campus visionaries," Aug. 9) that described some of the planning work our firm did for the Johns Hopkins University. While we certainly appreciate the kudos our firm received in the article, we would be remiss if we did not point out that the evolution of the campus has been a team effort which included many other talented consultants including RK&K Engineers, Mahan Rykiel Landscape Architects, and Michael Vergason Landscape Architects.

College freshmen are completing their first month on campus. According to the website  The Other Freshman 15 , "The first 15 weeks of college can be the riskiest for sexual assault. ... One out of five students experience rape or sexual assault while they are in college, and in the great majority of cases (75-80 percent), the victim knows the attacker. " The  Washington Post  recently carried a front-page story about campus sexual assaults. As the father of former college students, two of whom are daughters, I was stunned by the presumptions in the story.

Johns Hopkins Health System plans to open a $35 million expanded emergency department at Bayview Medical Center by January 2014, followed by a new oncology wing for its lung cancer treatment program.

Bayview needs an expanded emergency department to meet growing community needs, said Michael Iati, senior director of architecture and planning for the health system.

I wrote a story for today's paper on a proposal for a large development on what is now part of the University of Maryland 's golf course. The proposal is just a “concept,” the principals say. As now constituted, it would include a large, mixed-use development (hotel, retail, residences, office) and a direct link to the campus area from the I-95/I-495 interchange. At least some golf course land would be “repurposed.” Obviously, this would be a vast undertaking.

Officials on Tuesday continued investigating the second round of illnesses in less than a week at a North Baltimore office building but did not quickly find a link between the two bouts. Still, officials overseeing the investigation are confident that the building is safe and have decided it will be open for business on Wednesday. The water heater that was identified as the source of last week's sicknesses — more than 20 people reported headaches, breathing problems and dizziness — was taken offline before the building, part of the Johns Hopkins at Keswick campus, was reopened.

College junior Steve Moirano has no children of his own, but he played the proud parent Saturday as a pair of foals debuted to a crowd of onlookers at the University of Maryland campus farm. "What was it like?" Brandon Hurn, a sophomore chemical engineering student, asked Moirano, referring to a mare known as Amazin'. "Were you there?"

He and a few classmates were on hand to show off the foals - the first born on the farm in 30 years - and answer questions at Maryland Day, the university's annual campuswide showcase.

While the Obama administration presses colleges and universities to respond more aggressively to sexual assaults, students who are attacked at Baltimore-area schools are unable to get rape kit exams on their campuses. Instead, they must go to a hospital off-campus - an extra step that advocates for victims say deters at least some from reporting the crime. The question whether schools should offer the exams is the subject of a national debate that is dividing school administrators, nurse examiners and advocates - with victims falling on both sides.
