Towson University President Maravene Loeschke told faculty and staff Friday that she was recently diagnosed with cancer but expects to make a full recovery. Loeschke said the cancer, which is in her adrenal gland, was discovered at an early stage during a routine exam. She said she had surgery a few weeks ago and will undergo six weeks of radiation therapy to ensure the cancer does not spread. "I feel great and have no symptoms of any kind," Loeschke wrote in an email to faculty and staff members.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | March 26, 2013
Yet again, Harford County's lack of pull in the circles of influence in Annapolis has proven not only embarrassing, but also detrimental to the county's citizenry. Last week, the Maryland Board of Public Works voted, 2-1, to delay appropriating money to allow construction to start on a Harford County campus of Towson University that's planned as a major addition to and partnership with Harford Community College. To be clear, this has all the trappings of a tempest in a teapot.

It's pretty safe to say that Towson University has been a PR disaster of late. From the ham-handed way it tried to cut its baseball and men's soccer teams to the knuckleheads talking about forming a White Student Union, the school's been in the news for all the wrong reasons. So let's talk about something positive today: Towson's new 5,200-seat arena is about ready to open. And it's a beauty. Before we go any further, I feel compelled to report that as of right now, it's being called Tiger Arena.

A Towson University student says he's gathering support for a white-pride organization on campus, a semester after his efforts to start a related group stalled amid a campuswide debate over race and free speech. Matthew Heimbach, a senior U.S. history major, is leading the effort to create a White Student Union. His former group, Youth for Western Civilization, had sparked controversy with its public displays against Islam, same-sex marriage and multicultural education. That group disbanded after it lost the support of its faculty sponsor, but Heimbach said he hopes his new organization will promote white identity without disparaging other people.

A legislative audit released Wednesday found that Towson University was slow to act when students repeatedly wrote bad tuition checks and that a $4.3 million agreement with the Maryland Department of Transportation circumvented Maryland procurement rules. The audit states that 78 students submitted two or more bad tuition checks worth $650,000 over two or more semesters. If the university had placed the proper holds on their accounts, the repeat offenses couldn't have occurred. The school promised to take "timely and appropriate action against students who are in arrears.
