Introduction President Loh, thank you for your outstanding leadership here of Maryland's flagship University. Through some of the toughest economic times, you have led us forward to higher excellence and deeper understanding. Thank you, Dr. Loh, for your service, and for inviting me to share this happy moment with all of you today. As I was writing my message for your big day, my young staff warned me of a diabolical new post on Wired.com for such occasions called: Commencement Cliché BINGO   - It arranges no fewer than 24 clichéd graduation phrases on a grid - phrases like   "Be true to yourself.

My story isn't all that groundbreaking. I'm 23, officially a year removed from the University of Maryland-College Park and walking that ever-shaky line between being a functional adult and an irresponsible mess. It's a story you've heard many times before (probably in some form of Internet listicle). And it's also one that many of you are probably experiencing right now, or at least can remember when you were. My column will try to shed light on what being in this awkward half-stage of life really means.

"Terra Firma" at the University of Maryland College Park brings together the work of six women whose subject matter is women. Specifically, it deals with issues of concern to women through addressing itself to the subject of the body.The results range from the horrifying to the funny, in one case within the work of a single artist. Three pieces from a series of life-sized drawings on vellum by Faith Wilding deal with the issue rape and were occasioned by the rapes of women in the Bosnian War. "Forced Pregnancy Dress," "Raped Dress" and "Infected Dress" display repellent stains that speak graphically of the violence of rape; they are so repulsive that they are almost impossible to look at, and as such entirely appropriate to the subject.

* Jennifer Landsman, 19, of Columbia, sophomore at University of Maryland College Park:They should give it to the teachers and countyworkers. I thought it was bad they didn't get their raises. It's unfortunate for the students (when the teachers voted to 'work to contract'). The county should do whatever it can to make it up to them. Teachers already don't get paid enough. They should get whatever they can.

A Howard County couple who own liquor stores and commercial properties throughout the Baltimore region have been indicted in a scheme to illegally distribute untaxed cigarettes and alcohol, federal authorities announced Monday. U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein indicated that the probe was connected to a broad investigation that led to the arrest of Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson, a Democrat, and his wife last week on corruption charges. Officials declined to discuss the relationship, however, and an attorney for one of those charged denied any link to Johnson.

Although my role here at the University of Maryland College Park is as a professional in the field of information technology, it has been more difficult to do my part in helping us "foster a culture of innovation," primarily by hiring both graduate and undergraduate students to do real-life technical work ( "Federal funding drives innovation," April 30). That's because it has become much harder to find students actually from the United States who can do, or be trained to do, the type of software development and technical work I need.

Hackers who stole confidential information on more than 309,000 current and former students and faculty from computers at the University of Maryland College Park last week had to penetrate multiple layers of security to get at the data, and school officials still don't know exactly how they did it or who they were. The sophisticated attack, which compromised Social Security numbers, birth dates, university ID numbers and other personal information, was a stark reminder of how vulnerable the nation's institutions are. School officials moved quickly to respond to the breach, which apparently took place sometime between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Tuesday and was discovered by staffers a few hours later.

According to a recent White House report, one out of every five young women is victimized by a sexual assault during her college years. Yet nearly half those crimes are never reported to school officials or to police. Only about 12 percent of students formally report a sexual assault on campus, investigators found, with the result that such acts have become one of the most underreported crimes against college women. That is why Del. Jon S. Cardin, a Baltimore County Democrat and candidate for attorney general, has introduced legislation in this year's General Assembly that would require Maryland's colleges and universities to conduct anonymous surveys among women students in order to determine how commonly incidents of sexual assault actually occur on the state's campuses.
