A Towson University student was raped early Friday outside an apartment building near campus, police said. The woman told Baltimore County police she was grabbed from behind by two males and attacked about 1 a.m. at University Village. Campus police issued a crime alert Friday. "We're offering all of the resources at Towson to support the victim and her family as she begins to recover from this horrible event," Towson University spokeswoman Gay Pinder said. Cpl. Cathy Batton, a county police spokeswoman, said the woman called police at 2:18 a.m. and said the rape had occurred between 12:53 a.m. and 1:20 a.m. in the 400 block of Campus View Drive.

A Towson University student from Long Island, N.Y., who gave up lacrosse to turn his attention to his accounting studies was killed near campus by a hit-and-run driver early Saturday. Ryan Bailey, 20, a junior, was considering a career on Wall Street, his father said, adding that his son had followed his best friend to Maryland and had fallen in love with the area and the school. "Nobody disliked Ryan," said the father, William Bailey, by telephone from his home in Seaford N.Y., where the young man grew up, graduated from high school in 2009 and was an All-Nassau County attackman for the lacrosse team.

A celebratory air filled the ballroom at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Almost 800 well-wishers gathered to welcome Towson University's new president, Mark L. Perkins, at the Towson University Inaugural Dinner. The room sparkled with a TU theme. Towering centerpieces of gold Berber daisies, yellow roses and spider mums -- accented with black satin ribbons -- highlighted dining tables draped in dramatic black. Guests could even find the TU motif on the guest-of-honor himself. There, on President Perkins' cummerbund, was an embroidered university logo.

Towson University's provost will become its interim president after the departure next month of Robert L. Caret, a spokeswoman for the state university system confirmed Monday morning. William E.

The decision was announced to the Towson community in an email Monday, said system spokeswoman Anne Moultrie. Welsh will begin her new duties on April 20, the day after Caret is scheduled to depart Towson.

Three Towson University detectives have been awarded the campus Police Department's Medal of Merit after solving an armed robbery and home invasion in which a student was clubbed with a crowbar. The three detectives, Frank Remesch, Matthew Tewey and Richard Saylor, were among the first officers to arrive when the call for help came from a campus dormitory March 22, but the attackers had already fled. One attacker was armed with a handgun, the other a crowbar, with which he reportedly struck a student on the forehead after bursting into his room, police said.

Last week, Towson University announced that Dr. Maravene Loeschke will take the reins of Towson University as its new president. I wish congratulations and best wishes to Dr. Loeschke. She has accomplished much in her life and seems to be an outstanding choice. I am particularly happy that the new president is a Baltimore County native who spent more than three decades as a Towson University student, professor and dean. In my 10 months as County Council member, I've enjoyed a good relationship with former President Bob Caret and interim President Marcia Welsh, as well as administrators and staff who work closely with the community.

As a longtime resident of Towson, and a graduate of Towson State College (now Towson University), it disturbs me each week to read your paper and see so little of what is going on at TU. This is a "major" university, well-regarded throughout the country. There are many, many cultural, educational and athletic events occurring daily and weekly on campus. I searched this week's edition of the Towson Times, and only in the "calendar" section was there a small paragraph about a writers' conference.

While blind people can browse the Internet through a variety of means, there is often one thing that stops them cold - a security feature known as a CAPTCHA that's designed to distinguish human users from robots. CAPTCHAs, in which a user must identify the letters in a distorted image, are commonly used to block automated bots from grabbing up all the tickets for an event, signing up for thousands of email addresses in a short period of time or unfairly swaying the results of an online poll.
