An internal investigation found that the Johns Hopkins University failed to alert students, faculty and staff to what it called "a sexual assault" at a fraternity house in March 2013, the school's president said Wednesday in a letter to campus. In the letter, which accompanied the release of the university's 2013 annual security report, President Ronald J. Daniels called the failure to report the incident at Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity's house "unacceptable. " "I want to take this opportunity to reaffirm the University's commitment to the safety and well-being of all members of the Johns Hopkins community - a commitment that includes preventing sexual violence, offering support to victims, dealing firmly and fairly with alleged offenders, and keeping students, faculty and staff informed of crimes that represent a threat to our community," he said.

A pair of stone lions guards the steps leading to the stately, four-story brick home in Guilford. An elegant entry, with an Oriental carpet, paisley flowered window treatment draped over a matching fabric-covered rod, and a brass-trimmed crystal chandelier, leads into a high-ceiling living room with hand-milled crown molding. Sunlight floods the tall windows, bringing a rich glow to the cream-colored walls.It was difficult to envision that four years ago, when most of the windows were boarded up and water from leaking pipes seeped over beer-stained hardwood floors.

Officials said they were notified of the investigation on Friday.

I am forever grateful that my Kappa Alpha fraternity at Washington College didn't conduct childish hazing like Sigma Alpha Epsilon is accused of doing at Salisbury University ( "Legislators propose tougher penalties for hazing in wake of Salisbury University case," Jan. 13). Our pledges were assigned duties such as cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming rugs, painting steps, cutting grass and wiping down the windows of the fraternity house. These and other chores kept the house and grounds sparkling and made us look forward to becoming full-fledged members who could sit back and watch the next group of pledges do the work.

COLLEGE PARK - Police ruled out foul play yesterday in the death of a University of Maryland junior Wednesday morning and said that a preliminary autopsy showed it was "highly unlikely" that he died of alcohol poisoning. But the cause of Alexander Eugene Klochkoff's death remains unclear, police said. They are waiting for the results of toxicology tests, which could take at least two weeks. The police statements put an end to some of the speculation that has dominated the campus since the 20-year-old from North Bellmore, N.Y., was found on the front porch of his Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house about 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Architectural and decorative detail are built into this Charles Village Victorian house. The main floor's high ceilings have plaster relief designs, some leafy, some geometric. Underfoot, the wood floors feature parquet patterns with distinctive border designs. Deep crown moldings, marble fireplaces and pocket doors add to the picture. A turret distinguishes the house, its windows making the parlor and a third-floor suite bright. "There are lots of arches in this house. You see them repeated in the hallways," said Brett Cohen.

Six years after Calvert School drew protests for razing a 91-unit apartment complex at 4300 N. Charles St. to expand its campus, the school has sparked a new preservation controversy involving one of its own properties. School officials disclosed this fall that they are seeking permission to tear down Castalia, a large stone residence at 200 Tuscany Road that was built by the school's first headmaster, possibly to make way for an outdoor amphitheater. The hillside dwelling, now divided into apartments and vacant, is the work of Laurence Hall Fowler, a respected architect from the early 1900s who also designed Calvert School's 1920s-era building at 105 Tuscany Road and other residences in the area.
