Congratulations to Towson State University's School of Business and Economics for winning full accreditation from the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business for its undergraduate programs. Only one-third of the nation's business schools meet AACSB standards.Towson thus joins Loyola College and the University of Baltimore, which also have accredited graduate programs, in an important enhancement of the Maryland business scene. Only a little over four years ago, Baltimore was one of the few large American cities without a single AACSB-accredited institution.

DAN ROSEN, the 33-year-old Pikesville native who's making it in Hollywood, is about to shoot another movie, and this one's on the education beat.Rosen is the writer and director of "Dead Man's Curve." The title is a double entendre referring to a bend in the road as well as a school grading practice. Being "graded on the curve" has saved many a student in a difficult math or science course.In Rosen's film, which he will begin shooting at Towson University next month, a couple of students put to the test one of higher education's bizarre myths -- that when a student commits suicide, his or her surviving roommates receive A's in all their courses for the semester.

As Towson State University looks for ways to expand, a hidden campus oasis called the Glen is proving to be a tempting site.University president Hoke L. Smith calls it a classic battle of American interests -- growth vs. nature. But Rachel J. Burks, university geologist, says the historic 1930s glade off York Road should be protected as a matter of social conscience.Both have the same concern: How to save the 6-acre, oft-forgotten preserve amid an ambitious expansion program that university officials presented to community leaders yesterday.

Towson State University's ambitious 10-year master plan, which includes the possible acquisition of several nearby apartment complexes, has alarmed tenants who fear they may lose their homes.To quiet the furor, university officials are trying to reassure the neighbors, many of whom are elderly, that the expansion won't have an immediate impact -- and might never occur. President Hoke Smith called the plan "a wish list," and said the campus has enough space to build new dormitories.But that hasn't stopped the criticism.

Larry Washington began answering some important questions yesterday, and it was hours before the news conference.He wasn't badly out of shape, though losing 15 pounds wouldn't hurt. He was just a little rusty from a nearly two-year layoff. It still takes more than one tackler to bring him down. And he wasn't going to be overshadowed by a record-setting tailback.Washington made a smashing debut at Towson State, rushing for 182 yards on 22 carries and scoring three touchdowns in the Tigers' 34-3 victory over Butler before 1,437 at Minnegan Stadium.
