Tuition at St. Mary's College of Maryland will be slashed by more than 8 percent in the coming academic year after the Maryland General Assembly approved a special grant in the state's final budget. The southern Maryland liberal arts college has the highest tuition of any public university in the state, and has recently struggled with declining enrollment. The $1.5 million grant approved by state lawmakers will only be used for reducing tuition for in-state undergraduates. The tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates this year was $14,864 – university officials now say that figure will drop by about $1,000 starting in the fall.

As cold cases go, this one's a doozy. The world's first Methodist college, one of Maryland's earliest institutions of higher education, burned in 1795. Newspapers at the time said it was arson. The governor offered a $1,000 reward - a lot of money then - to catch the perpetrator. But no one was ever charged. Enter Bonnie McCubbin, an anthropology and history major at St. Mary's College of Maryland, who graduated in May. More than two centuries after the mysterious fire, the 22-year-old from Bel Air tracked down artifacts excavated decades ago at the site in Harford County where Cokesbury College once stood.

Notes Maryland's strange history of Jim Crow: It's impossible to consider Maryland's past and not be struck by the irony of race relations in the Free State. The birthplace of the nation's greatest abolitionists, Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman, was also the home of slavery's staunchest defender, Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, who wrote the infamous Dred Scott decision. Sun columnist C. Fraser Smith explores the state's past and the effects Jim Crow segregation laws had on everyday Marylanders in his new book Here Lies Jim Crow, to be published by the Johns Hopkins University Press this summer.

The race for Maryland's open U.S. Senate seat has narrowed, but Democrat Benjamin L. Cardin holds a 6-point edge, the result of firm support among black voters and strong leads in Baltimore and suburban Washington, according to a new poll for The Sun. Cardin is ahead of Republican Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele, 49 percent to 43 percent, with 5 percent of voters undecided less than a week before the election. The Baltimore congressman's lead has been cut nearly in half, however, since a September Sun survey showed him with an 11-point advantage.

Maryland colleges and universities received middling marks yesterday in an upstart college ranking system that aims to deflate the influence of U.S. News and World Report by emphasizing public service and research spending over selectivity and academic reputation. All state campuses that made it into the Washington Monthly's second annual College Guide received lower standings than they have in the most recent U.S. News rankings - and only one cracked the top 50. The Johns Hopkins University was ranked 29th of 245 four-year research universities, down 16 places from its 13th-place rank in the 2006 U.S. News guide.

CHESTERTOWN - Brian Schultz was supposed to be working at his summer job at Ikea in White Marsh, earning money for his coming freshman year at Washington College. But instead of moving crates, Schultz was sitting on a lawn on the Eastern Shore campus, looking slightly dazed after taking a Spanish test almost two months before classes begin. "It was all right," he said. "I took a lot of it in high school - but still, it's summer." A generation or two ago, freshmen would register for classes via the U.S. Postal Service and show up a few days before the start of school to find out where the dining hall and libraries were.
