THE MOTTO at Anne Arundel Community College, "Students first," might soon have to be changed to "Students last."Today, the college's Board of Trustees will decide whether to raid $100,000 from the student activities and athletics budgets next year to offset rising operating costs.The idea comes from college administrators, who want to avoid a tuition increase and the bad publicity that goes with it. Under the proposed budget shift, however, students would lose some interscholastic sports teams; the campus literary magazine; the student handbook, which provides valuable information about AACC rules and policies, and orientation for new pupils.

"And Elphaba" - aka the Wicked Witch of the West - "is the quintessential outsider. She's bullied onstage. When bullying became part of the national conversation a few years ago, we allowed the show and its characters to be involved. " Cast members have made videos for the "It Gets Better" campaign.

Art students have a way with a wardrobe -- Day-Glo hair, clunky combat boots and some hardware store chains and they have pulled together a daytime look. But they really show their style when it comes to dressing for the Halloween season. The marble halls of the Maryland Institute College of Art echoed with screams and giggles for the school's annual costume ball Saturday night. Creative costumes were encouraged and sponsored by the school's Office of Student Activities and the student Performing Arts Committee, and they were a howl.

Bill Bleich calls the teachers' signing stipend a "bribe" ("Reject the contract," Oct. 13) He teaches English and drama, but he does not know that a bribe is something given to induce a person to do wrong or commit a crime. He says merit pay will pressure teachers to be less supportive of each other and act in a more self-centered way and then immediately and inconsistently goes on to say teachers are more highly motivated than administrators and selflessly devote large amounts of time to student activities.

An hour before Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama squared off on national television on Oct. 3, the pre-presidential-debate debate got under way at Carroll Community College, with one student speculating out loud, "I wonder when the shoe-throwing is going to start?" Not to worry — no shoes, rotten tomatoes, spitballs, mean-spirited invectives or anything else went airborne. In fact, the hour-long debate, which featured a seven-member panel representing the county Republican and Democratic central committees, the Carroll County League of Women Voters, the Libertarian Party and We, The People — a local offshoot of the Tea Party movement — was cordial.

When Arundel Middle School launched its Fit Club last year, nearly three dozen students signed up to take part in a gym activity that included cardio exercises, weight training and workouts with the P90X fitness program. But many of them didn't think their teachers would show up, too. "It's kind of funny sometimes," said Arundel seventh-grader Jose Ramirez. "It's a different experience seeing them, like, work. They usually see us work a lot. " That is what Arundel Middle physical education teacher Jason Lively envisioned when he launched the Fit Club last year.

In his years as a chef, Chris Shoul had never thought much about the feelings of a lifelong vegetarian, unable to enjoy the cheese steaks others scarfed down. But last year, after Towson University began offering a vegan version of the sandwich made with substitute beef, the campus' top chef got a note from just such a student. "Because of you, I got to have my first cheese steak!" the student raved to Shoul. Such moments are the reasons why Towson and the University of Maryland, College Park rank among the most vegan-friendly campuses in the U.S. and Canada, according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

After a two-year hiatus, former Chairman Sandra H. French has decided to seek another term on the Howard County Board of Education. French, who served on the board from 1992 to 2004, said she has been wrestling with the idea for the past six months. "I felt as if I made a difference and wanted to continue to make a difference," French said yesterday. "I love education; I love our students. It all just seems to point toward serving on the board again." French, 62, said she has spent some of the past two years substitute teaching at county secondary schools, which she said has given her more insight about students.
