Coppin State University suffered a $2.5 million revenue shortfall this fall because of a drop in enrollment, and school officials said Tuesday that the deficit is being offset with cuts to the administration and other cost-saving measures rather than tuition increases. Coppin State spokeswoman Tiffany Jones said Tuesday that the school enrolled 3,133 students this fall, 250 less than a year ago. Tuition, plus fees, for in-state students is about $6,000. To offset part of the shortfall, a school vice president and an assistant vice president have been let go, Jones said.

Last week, Jim Perdue spoke at a Maryland Chamber of Commerce event to complain about the regulatory environment in the state where his company roosts. "The problem is, we have no seat at the table in Maryland," the Perdue Farms chairman said, according to the Baltimore Business Journal. "Even if we have an onerous thing that happens in Virginia or Delaware, we can sit at the table and at least express our opinion. " Wow. Just wow. No doubt there are a lot of corporate CEOs out there who are nodding their heads in agreement at Mr. Perdue's chirping.

Salisbury University announced Thursday the receipt of an $8 million donation - tied for the largest in its history - from the Guerrieri Family Foundation. The funds will help develop a new Academic Commons area on the Eastern Shore campus. The $116 million project, which includes a new library and Delmarva research center, will be named after Patricia R. Guerrieri, a Salisbury alumna who studied elementary education in the 1950s. She died in 2010. Her family ran Showell Farms, a poultry processing business with five plants in four states, for decades until Perdue Farms acquired the company in 1995.

Two state legislators and the University System of Maryland chancellor say they support tougher penalties for hazing after a recent report detailed an extreme case at a Salisbury University fraternity chapter. State Sen. Jamie Raskin said he will introduce a bill in this year's legislative session to increase the criminal fine for hazing from $500 to $5,000. He said he was shocked by a recent report from Bloomberg that examined the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter's alleged hazing, including paddle beatings, forced drinking and making pledges stand in trash cans full of ice water.

I always worry, as I dust off the syllabus and prepare my fall course at Salisbury University - will the final exam show up? Storms along their 4,000-mile migration corridor or conditions on their sub-Arctic nesting grounds might delay the wild swans. They seldom arrive where I take my students until just before the semester ends. I designed "Topics in Chesapeake Bay" to be different. The university affords me the luxury of doing it as an inspirational condiment atop the required courses.
