Annapolis was dubbed "the center of the jazz world" by local jazz impresario Elana Byrd last weekend for hosting the three-day Four Freshmen Society convention at the Doubletree Hotel on Riva Road. The society is an international fan club whose members gather once a year for a convention celebrating the group. The longest continually performing vocal group, the original Four Freshmen started singing together in 1948, and had their first hit single, "It's a Blue World," four years later.

Seven years after the University of Baltimore admitted its first freshman class, new President Kurt L. Schmoke is considering a return to the school's roots as an upper-division college that enrolled only juniors and seniors. The enrollment growth that came with the first underclassmen in 2007 has stagnated. UB enrolls about 200 freshmen each fall, and the university still attracts mostly transfers and graduate students. In an interview Friday, Schmoke spoke of flat public funding and a need to work more efficiently.

During the fourth quarter of last Saturday's game at Georgia Tech, Maryland linebacker Mario Rowson looked around him and noticed that he was not the only freshman on the field for the Terps . Far from it. "It was like, 'Dang we've got five freshmen out here. We're doing it,'" Rowson recalled Wednesday, sitting in the auditorium at the Gossett Team House. "They got some good stuff out of all of us. It felt good. " Though the Terps wound up losing, 21-16, to the then 13th-ranked Yellow Jackets at Grant Field, the play of the five freshmen — four of whom started — has been a bright spot for a team in the midst of what now has the markings of a difficult transition season.

As the fall semester began at Towson University last year, Erin Garnes settled into one of the dormitories and signed up for clubs and other school activities. But one thing separated her from Towson students: All of her classes were taught by community college professors. Under a program at Towson, if she did well, she would be admitted to the university in the spring. Her experience mirrors a practice that's been growing at colleges in Maryland and across the country in recent years — offering some students admission for the spring semester and providing a bridge during the fall to help them adjust to the rigors of college.

The adage “seen but not heard” can sometimes be applied to the plebes at the Naval Academy. But the freshmen have helped the men's basketball team to a three-game winning streak. A core group of first-year players has converted 42.1 percent (16-of-38) of its field-goal attempts and has averaged 19 points and 11 rebounds in the program's victories over UMBC (73-58 on Nov. 23), UMES (67-59 on Nov. 26) and The Citadel (79-74 on Dec. 4). In the team's first five games, freshmen connected on 37.7 percent (26-of-69)

Dizzy, Sara and Remi don't know whether or not the new freshmen at McDaniel College are feeling a little homesick, or experiencing their first time on a campus away from family or friends. But regardless, on Tuesday they were only too happy to cuddle with students who needed a hug in Whiteford Hall, the dorm for freshmen females, and also spent time visiting students at Kriel Lounge, a popular gathering place that includes a large cafeteria. The trio - Sara and Remi are spaniels, and Dizzy is a Chinese crested puff - were tough to resist, with their tails wagging and their puppy dog eyes.

Earlier in the week, North Carolina coach Joe Breschi told Pat Foster it was his time to shine. On Saturday, the freshman attackman delivered with three goals and an assist in the No. 7 Tar Heels' 11-6 win at No. 6 Maryland. Foster (Boys' Latin) was making his first start on attack, filling in for the injured Thomas Wood. Foster felt some pregame jitters playing in front of a home crowd of 3,176 at Byrd Stadium, but those anxieties soon faded as he scored his first goal late in the first quarter, and his last one early in the fourth to push North Carolina's lead to 10-5.

In the days of eight-track tapes and vinyl records, college freshmen hit the road to college with little more than a turntable and an alarm clock. Today's freshmen are decidedly more techno-laden.NFO Research Inc. of Eden Prairie, Minn., surveyed 612 people - half who entered college in 1967, and the rest who started school last year. The survey was sponsored by the Best Buy retail chain. Here's a look at what they're packing into the family station wagon, er, van.Q. Looking back to your freshman year, if you could only have one thing in your dorm room, which one of these would you choose?

The Naval Academy is about molding military leaders, but when it comes to scaling a greased-up, 21-foot-tall obelisk, it takes teamwork. That's what propelled 19-year-old Midshipman Michael Landry to the top of a writhing human pyramid Monday. He topped the academy's Herndon Monument with a midshipman's hat after 2 hours, 19 minutes, and 35 seconds - a feat celebrated by his classmates with jumping, cheering and singing. "Plebes no more! Plebes no more!" members of the Class of 2017 chanted.

Mike Chanenchuk led Maryland in points with four and scored the game-winning goal with two seconds left in regulation to propel the seventh-seeded Terps to an 8-7 decision over Cornell in the first round of the NCAA tournament Saturday. But the senior attackman took great pains to single out the play of his freshman linemates in Matt Rambo and Connor Cannizzaro. “Matt and Connor, I think they grew up for us today, and they were being leaders out there today, which was really awesome to see,” Chanenchuk said Saturday.

By midmorning Tuesday, Naval Academy Midshipman Kevin Saxton had been awake for eight hours, tackled an obstacle course, survived an endurance run and beat his classmates with pugil sticks. Sweat dripping down his face as he scarfed down trail mix, Saxton said his day at the annual academy Sea Trials was already a success - a sweaty, sandy, muddy good time with his band of classmates in Annapolis. "It's a lot of fun. Pretty physically challenging," said Saxton, a systems engineering major from Grand Rapids, Mich., who aspires to be a Marine Corps pilot.

Coach Don Zimmerman announced Tuesday that redshirt freshman Connor Gordon will start at goalie when the Retrievers open the season at No. 11 Maryland on Saturday at 12 p.m. at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Junior James Maxwell and freshman Ruston Souder were also competing for the right to replace junior Wes DiRito, who will sit this season to recover from foot surgery.

Taylor Cummings fought off monster butterflies in her stomach last year as a freshman starter for the Maryland women's lacrosse team. Even though the McDonogh graduate ranked No. 1 in her recruiting class and played for the No. 1 high school team in the country, she could not shake the nerves before every Terps game. She always felt there was so much more to learn playing on a Maryland team ranked No. 1 until it fell in the NCAA championship in triple overtime to North Carolina.

Seven were starters, including all three attackmen (Andrew Scalley, Brett Schmidt and Cody Lehrer), all three midfielders (Bryant Schmidt, Daniel Stranix and Eric Ososki) and one defenseman (John Anderson).

Many people know Towson's senior trio of forwards Jerrelle Benimon, Marcus Damas and guard Mike Burwell. John Davis, Marquis Marshall and Walter Foster may not be as familiar, but they could be nearly as important. The three are part of a freshman class the Tigers (10-6, 1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association) are leaning on to contribute off the bench. Davis, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound forward, has scored at least six points in three straight games and has nearly as many offensive rebounds (16)
