Students in Anne Arundel Community College's Black Student Scholars Summer Bridge Program start their college careers a little early to make sure they make it all the way to the end. The initiative, conceived five years ago by a group of black faculty and staff, offers help in reading, mathematics and English and introduces students to the college's different departments and support services. Interspersed throughout the four-week session are lectures on important but less tangible skills that ensure student success: time management, how to study and healthy choices.

It's not just my colleagues and the staff and faculty. It's the parents and the kids. That combination makes this a very happy place.” McDonogh is a private, coeducational K-12 school located on a rolling 800-acre campus in Owings Mills.

In Blaine Taylor's letter ("Next Towson University president needs to focus on relations with Towson," April 4) he may be right on in his comments regarding former president James L. Fisher, the 9-month president Mark Perkins (responsible for the Guilford house fiasco), and soon-to-be-leaving president of the last seven years, Robert Caret. However, he doesn't even mention the wonderful "philosopher" president of 22 years, Dr. Hoke L. Smith. How can he jump from Fisher to Perkins to Caret and omit the man, Dr. Smith, who for 22 years focused on the university, the students, the faculty and staff?

The parking closures appear to be the first major security upgrade since Sept.
