With a tap on his smartphone, University of Maryland student Shiv Krishnamoorthy can instantly alert police as he walks through the dimly lit corners of the College Park campus — and share with them his precise location, plus live video and audio. The app, which was developed by a university computer science professor and a team of students in conjunction with campus police, is the first of its kind in the small but growing field of smartphone apps for campus security. M-Urgency will be available to Maryland students, faculty and staff early next month.

A woman was robbed Thursday morning in North Baltimore one block away from a mugging that took place the day before, continuing a trend of recent street robberies that worry police. Sometime after 8 a.m., three men described as being in their early 20s walked past the victim in the 300 block of Wyman Park Drive in the Remington neighborhood before one of them turned and snatched the woman's purse hanging on her right shoulder, Baltimore police said. The woman resisted and was dragged on the sidewalk before the suspects fled on foot with the purse, which carried the victim's cell phone, credit cards, keys and other belongings.

Students drawn to Morgan State University's strong academics and historical legacy are finding that crime is becoming an increasing distraction, and are joining a state lawmaker and alumnus in calling for better security to protect the institution's reputation. The latest incident took place Friday. Baltimore police said a 20-year-old man who is not a student at Morgan shot a lineman on the university's football team as students wound down the last day of classes before fall-semester finals.

Campus crime statistics reported to the federal government show there were 15 burglaries at Morgan State University in 2010. But a review of the university's daily crime log found twice as many. When reporting campus crime to the U.S. Department of Education, Morgan State downgraded many burglaries to thefts, following a federal directive that crimes not be reported as burglaries without evidence of unauthorized entry. And thefts — there were more than 100 reported at Morgan State in 2010 — are not included in the federal data on campus crime.

Enrollment at Anne Arundel Community College has increased 5 percent for the fall semester. And with more students on campus, there are more traffic and parking headaches as well as a premium on class space. Students have flooded community colleges during the nation's economic downturn, looking for bargain-rate classes to burnish their resumes. In addition to adding more online courses to deal with the influx, AACC has begun offering classes in the middle of the night. Still, the college turns away more than 200 qualified students to its nursing trainee program each year, though the school has worked to more efficiently manage professors' schedules to accommodate more students.

This column reflects on what some would consider "old" news - the shootings at Virginia Tech - and I offer this observation: Reporters, editors and readers needed breathing room after this horrific event to achieve some kind of perspective on what happened there. The coverage of the worst mass shooting in American history has raised interesting questions about the direction and velocity of modern American journalism. Some readers and television viewers felt assaulted by the in-your-face presentation of the bad news - very large headlines and photos, including menacing close-ups of the shooter brandishing handguns.

It's 11:30 at night on Lovegrove Street, an alley near the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University. A lone man is looking up and down the street, apparently waiting for someone. A pickup truck drives up. The man says something to the driver, gets in and they drive off. Minutes later, a block away, a woman is robbed at gunpoint by two men who speed off in a pickup. No one at the scene can describe the truck to campus security officers or to Baltimore police. This case last June might have gone cold.
