Last weekend, Towson students jammed into a parking lot outside Johnny Unitas Stadium, drinking and partying in a pre-game tailgate bash that university officials said left a police officer injured and a girl needing stitches after she attempted a backflip off a pickup truck. None of that was evident Saturday before the Tigers' football game against the Maine Black Bears, after university administrators cracked down on hard-core partying and set new rules for student tailgating.

Students who wish to tailgate for Towson University football games must attend a "risk reduction workshop" before getting a parking pass, one in a series of stricter new rules put in place after officials opted against a full ban this week. At last Saturday's tailgate in the designated student lot, Lot 14, students were dancing on the roofs of cars and were "hostile" and "uncooperative," according to Towson officials. Deb Moriarty, Towson's vice president for student affairs, was so concerned by the behavior and the potential risk to student safety she asked a group of other top officials to consider a ban on student tailgates Wednesday.

In 2012, a rugby club member was so intoxicated he told a dormitory resident assistant that the year was 1993.

Officials at the University of Maryland have pledged to spend an additional $5 million on student mental health services at the state's flagship College Park campus over the next 10 years, the largest investment in counseling services there in decades. The decision was made this week following years of stagnant investments in psychiatric services at the university's counseling and health centers, despite large spikes in student demand. It comes on the heels of a murder-suicide involving a mentally ill student just off campus in February, which shined a spotlight on the imbalance between counseling services and demand.

After the unfortunate murder suicide at the University of Maryland College Park by a graduate student who used a handgun to commit his crimes, The Sun wrote an editorial urging college campuses to educate their students about the signs of mental illness in their fellow students ("Campus nightmare," Feb. 14). In fact, you wanted this type of education to be a part of college orientation programs.
