The conference was hosted by the No Kill Advocacy Center and the Animal Law Program at George Washington University. Participants attended from 44 states and several countries to learn how to improve the save rate of animals in open admission shelters in their communities. According to the No Kill Advocacy Center, more than 150 communities, representing approximately 600 cities and towns have already achieved a 90 percent or higher save rate thus far.

Smith Center, several former Terps and local players had the honor of being among the first to play on it as part of the Basketball Alumni Legends League's Pro Basketball Series.

By pitting local stars against one another, Wranovics hopes to generate fan interest and create immediate team chemistry.

This year's display is attractively housed at the Walters Art Museum instead of its usual spot in the Baltimore Museum of Art - an extensive renovation project at the BMA necessitated the temporary relocation.

COLLEGE PARK - A 20-year-old University of Maryland student was clinging to life last night, a day and a half after a George Washington University student shot her in the head and then shot himself with a semiautomatic handgun. The shooter, 21-year-old Ki- Seong Kim, who was a student at George Washington University's School of Business and Public Management, died Friday afternoon from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Although police and university officials have declined to identify the woman, except to say that she was studying at College Park and living in Burtonsville, students said that she, like Kim, was Korean-American.

The group hoped to bring the 2012 Summer Olympics to the region — and with it, billions of dollars in revenue and tens of thousands of new jobs.

It's the confidence that comes from having completed his education at George Washington University after being drafted last year by the Washington Nationals. Lucas, a 24-year-old left-handed pitcher who grew up in Baltimore and played at Calvert Hall, has a dream to pitch in the major leagues. But as he makes his progression from 27th-round longshot to legitimate prospect, Lucas already has Plan B in place.
