One Towson University student drank so much alcohol he was unable to speak and threw up "without a pause" before passing out outside a nearby apartment complex, according to an anguished email his mother sent to university officials. Another student attempted to drink a bottle of Southern Comfort and ended up in the hospital with a blood alcohol content of 0.34 percent, a level that's life-threatening. In 2012, a rugby club member was so intoxicated he told a dormitory resident assistant that the year was 1993.

It was somewhat of a foregone conclusion that Maravene Loeschke would take center stage this coming week as she is inaugurated as the new president of Towson University.

Towson University's football squad came out of Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday with a loss to No. 3 LSU, but gave their counterpart Tigers a game effort in a 38-22 contest. In a game televised on ESPNU, Towson actually held a 9-7 lead in the second quarter after the two teams traded touchdowns (Towson's extra point kick failed) and Towson also had a field goal. But LSU added 10 points before halftime, then another 7 in the third quarter to stave off the pesky visiting Tigers. In the fourth quarter, both teams scored two touchdowns.

The 8,000-square-foot Guilford mansion owned by Towson University that provided posh housing for its president - and a headache for the institution - may be back on the market soon. The university is seeking to put the president's house, located in Baltimore and more than four miles from campus, up for sale. The home led to a president's ouster shortly after the university purchased it more than a decade ago, and has cost the university tens of thousands of dollars a year to maintain.

The residents of Rodgers Forge have a simple message for Towson University: A promise made should be a promise kept. Towson University plans to build a 5,000-plus-seat arena on its southernmost boundary - which abuts my house. In 2003, the university drew up its master plan for the development on its campus and received input from the Rodgers Forge Community Association. The university agreed to build the arena on a site to the north, and not on the site that abuts the residences in Rodgers Forge.

Towson University will be allowed to construct and operate a new branch on the campus of Harford Community College, under a decision released Friday afternoon by the state's interim secretary of higher education. The $25 million project will proceed despite previously expressed reservations from Morgan State University leaders, who questioned the fairness of allowing Towson to stake a foothold in Harford County, a growing suburb with a rich base of military jobs and no four-year universities.
