Anne Arundel Community College officials say that for some prospective students, particularly adults who have spent years away from a formal classroom setting, the stresses of school begin well before enrollment. The school will hold an open house next month called "College 101" to help ease anxieties for adults looking to begin long-delayed goals to attend college or those who are returning to the classroom. The program will be offered at the school's Arundel Mills campus in Hanover on Aug. 3 and at its main campus in Arnold on Aug. 6. "The program was initiated because many adults have been away from school for many years," said Frances Turcott, director of AACC's Off-Site and Weekend College.

"Please sir, I want some more. " The famous phrase of Oliver Twist would seem tragically appropriate when it comes to the modus operandi of American higher education - but for the fact that Oliver Twist was a starving child and higher education is a bloated wastrel. But the higher ed bubble is bursting, right in our own backyard. And colleges and universities need to take note, to ensure their own survival. The case in point is St. Mary's College of Maryland, a 173-year-old public institution tucked between the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. After a decade of rising tuition, this public liberal arts college finds itself with 150 empty seats for the incoming freshman class.

Perched before 230 high school students he hopes will attend his university this fall, Johns Hopkins President William R. Brody began a presentation Thursday by telling them one of his students had been brutally killed. It seemed an odd way to start, some of the prospective students and their parents would later say. But they listened as Brody described how a burglar entered a fraternity house through an open door, came upon Christopher Elser and attacked him. The April 17 stabbing of the junior from South Carolina - the first homicide in Charles Village since November 2000 - serves as a stark reminder to prospective students and their parents that if they choose to attend Johns Hopkins, they are opting to go to school in one of the most violent cities in America.

After visiting six college campuses in four days, high-school junior Shaen Robertshaw had reached his limit -- a full day and two campuses before the tour was scheduled to end."At that point, we gave up and drove home," said Shaen's mother, Susan Lewandowski. "When they've had enough, it's time to quit."Lewandowski knows those glazed looks all too well. She's an admissions officer at Smith College in Northampton, Mass., where high school students and their families come from as far as California and abroad to see the classic New England women's college and other campuses nearby.

When Dan Klein was a star quarterback and pitcher at Servite High, he also volunteered as a student mentor for the all-boys Catholic school in Anaheim, Calif. As part of the program, prospective students in seventh and eighth grade would shadow upperclassmen for a day to get a feel for the place. Most upperclassmen were assigned three, maybe four middle-schoolers. Klein, however, had 23 -- and all ended up going to Servite. By the final semester of his senior year, the administration and his parents jointly pulled the plug on Klein's volunteerism so he could concentrate on his studies.

St. John's College senior Babak Zarin says that, according to school lore, ghosts at McDowell Hall often made such a commotion that hall residents held seances to tell them — politely — to keep it down. Kathy Dulisse, director of community programs, said that once when she was alone on the second floor of the Carroll Barrister House, she caught a glimpse of a cloak of someone heading upstairs. She subsequently headed up to see who it was, and no one was there. Security officer Henry Smith said that one night this past summer at 2 a.m., while leaving the school gymnasium, he heard a "powerful whistling sound" close by. Later, while reading pamphlets in another building, he came across a story about a so-called ghost named "The Whistler" who makes the same sound in front of the gym during the early-morning hours.
