Lois O'Brien-Cronin, the former dean of students at Villa Julie College who later worked with an academic and career counseling program for women at the Community College of Baltimore County's Essex campus, died of a stroke Thursday at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The longtime Mays Chapel resident was 84. "She was one tough broad, but she had a great sense of humor. She was just a hoot," said Paula K. Minsk, who was director of education at the Stratford School of Business in the 1990s, where Mrs. O'Brien-Cronin had also worked.

Former Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III has joined the criminal justice faculty at Stevenson University, the school announced today.  The move comes after much speculation about what arguably the city's most successful top cop in recent history would do after retiring this year. Bealefeld will serve as a full-time distinguished professional in criminal justice and instructor, teaching coursework for undergraduates and helping develop a center for criminal justice.

Protesting campus graduation speakers that some students or faculty reject, often on specious grounds, denigrates having distinguished scholars share their ideas with graduating students ( "Commencement speakers fair game for protest," June 1). As Stevenson University philosopher A. Hooke correctly points out, in recent years a spate of thin but angry objections has resulted in more and more distinguished individuals being dis-invited from commencement ceremonies. Critics claim that students can't "talk back" at commencement speeches and hence might be forced to hear things they reject.

A student at Stevenson University has been hospitalized in stable condition with a suspected case of bacterial meningitis, an often contagious and potentially deadly infection that causes inflammation in the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. School officials have contacted other students who may have been exposed and treated them preventatively with Cipro, according to Linda Reymann, associate dean and director of Stevenson's Wellness Center. High fever, headache and stiff neck are the most common symptoms, which can develop over several hours or a day or two, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As one who had the privilege of working under Stevenson University president Kevin Manning when the school was still known as Villa Julie College, I read with interest the article "Stevenson pay gap tops for private schools, report says" ( Dec. 6). As the school's board of trustees points out, the salaries quoted in the report are misleading. I have the highest regard for Mr. Manning, the administration and the outstanding faculty and staff of Stevenson University. If it were not for Mr. Manning, Stevenson would have gone the way of hundreds of small private colleges that have gone out of business over the last 10 years.

Jimmy Gribbin can't decide - New York or Los Angeles? This spring, when he graduates from Stevenson University with a bachelor's degree in film/video, he's heading to one of those magnet cities. Gribbin wants to be a film director. It's a long shot, he knows, but he is willing to start small, hoping to get hired on a film crew in whatever capacity. "The program here teaches you all aspects of film and video. I learned on the most current equipment," said the 28-year-old College Park native.

Carl Pettis was frustrated after he got his first test grade in Susan Slattery's college calculus class. "It was not good," he said. "She chewed me out for silly mistakes. " But Pettis credits Slattery's tough instruction at Alabama State University as a big factor in his rise to academic success. Slattery, who had moved onto a position as mathematics department chairwoman at Stevenson University, died in an Ohio car accident Monday. At Alabama State — where Pettis is now the interim chair for the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science — and at Stevenson, the academic community is mourning her loss.

Viewers see first the beast's ravenous mouth, with six fangs increasing in size and as pointed as daggers. The fiend is wearing a "Vote" button with an image of the American flag, and its tail snakes into a dollar sign. Even before gallery-goers scan the caption — "Monstrous costs: Total House and Senate campaign expenditures" — they have a good idea which dismal fact of modern life is being illustrated. Moreover, they know exactly how artist Nigel Holmes feels about the increase.

What a dreadful experience for the Stevenson University students who were robbed in South Africa ( "Stevenson students return after being robbed in South Africa," May 14). They were lucky former Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III was on the bus. Even though he and the other chaperon considered grabbing the robber's weapons, they refrained. Others might not have, and by grabbing a weapon, the kids could have been badly injured or killed. The story horrified me because a similar incident happened to a family member during a college-sponsored trip to an African country.

McDonogh's No. 1 girls lacrosse team has won 110 straight games, but it will take two more to seal a fifth straight perfect season and a sixth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. In some ways, the next two may be harder than the last 110. The Eagles (18-0) face one of their toughest challengers, No. 5 Severn, in Wednesday's 4:30 p.m. semifinal. In McDonogh's 9-6 win on March 28, the Admirals won the early draws and got a 17-save performance from goalie Meredith Brown.

The afternoon of Monday, March 31st was a typical day at Stevenson University until 2:24 p.m., when cell phones across campus suddenly displayed a text alert that we have never had to send before: "Active shooter on the Owings Mills campus. " The same warning popped up on office PCs and classroom computer projectors. Students, faculty and staff locked doors, piled desks and chairs to create barricades and hid under desks and in closets to protect themselves wherever they were on campus.

Amid reports of an "active shooter" on campus Monday, Stevenson University students threw their desks against the classroom door, then prayed with near-strangers under computer carts. Just three days later, elementary and middle school students at KIPP charter schools in Baltimore were hiding with their teachers in a classroom, while police searched the building for a gunman and hundreds of parents rushed to a nearby school to wait anxiously for word about their children. There was no real danger to students or teachers in either incident.

After taping an 8- by 10-inch drawing of a Chinese dragon to a white board in an art classroom at Stevenson University, Carlson Bull handed over an iPad with the instruction to aim it at the illustration and wait for mobile augmented reality to unfold. With both hands gripping the tablet computer as if it were a steering wheel, the tester was able to "look through" the device like a window and watch, in 3-D, as the vividly colored creature peered out of a hole in the wall, glanced furtively around and gracefully flew away.
