Imagine you are Catholic and you are having a birthday party and you invite the pope. And he comes.That is the happy coincidence -- some might say miracle -- that has occurred for the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, which is celebrating its 100th year as the oldest Roman Catholic college for women in the United States.Pope John Paul II was scheduled to be in Baltimore last October, but fatigue and poor health caused him to put off his visit until now, when the streets around Notre Dame's north Baltimore campus are decorated with blue and white centennial banners.

With the recent announcements that Wilson College in Pennsylvania and Pine Manor College in Massachusetts will join the lengthening list of formerly women-only institutions that are now co-educational - including Hood College and Goucher College here in Maryland - what hope is there for the single-sex colleges that remain? In a word: plenty. Graduates of women's colleges are twice as likely as female graduates of co-ed institutions to earn a Ph.D., attend medical school, be involved in philanthropic activity, attain higher positions in their careers and earn higher incomes.

AT LARGE universities, it's not uncommon to find science buildings with side-by-side laboratories for teaching and research. Or "state of the science" microscopes and other equipment for the most complicated experiments. First-rate science facilities can be more difficult to find at smaller, liberal arts colleges that have fewer science majors. But at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland -- a 104-year-old women's college in North Baltimore -- students enjoy small classes and top-notch spaces for science, now that a $9 million addition to the main science building on campus has been completed.

Born 200 years ago on Oct. 22, Franz Liszt changed music history. Even if the Hungarian-born pianist/composer had not done so, people would probably still remember him, if only for his romances. There was the dancer, Lola, who got so mad when Liszt tired of her that she followed him from city to city, finally crashing a banquet given in his honor and boogieing on a table in front of a startled crowd. And Olga, who, likewise faced with Liszt's waning affections, disguised herself as a gardener and burst into his villa ready to stab him. She settled for one more bout of lovemaking that night, but soon hounded him again, this time with a revolver and poison.

The College of Notre Dame will be known as Notre Dame of Maryland University starting next fall, school officials announced Tuesday at an on-campus pep rally. President Mary Pat Seurkamp said the new name, chosen by a unanimous vote of the board of trustees Oct. 30, is a nod to a long tradition of all-women's undergraduate education and to Notre Dame's evolution into a more complex institution that offers doctoral degrees in education and pharmacy. "We needed a name that pointed to the best of both worlds," she said.
