The administration has placed a moratorium, effective immediately, on all events held by Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC) fraternities until a team comprised of administrative officials and IFC members completes a plan to ensure safety at future fraternity events.

The University’s seven year contract with Aramark, its primary food services partner, is set to expire on June 30 of next year.
Global warming threatens baby ringed seals
It is easy to see why senior Vivek Suri, a member of the Hopkins debate team, is so good at what he does: He is articulate, has a confident tone and knows just how much eye contact to make with his opponent.
The announcement that this year's Commencement speaker will be Bill Nye is disappointing. The issue is not that Nye is necessarily a bad speaker or that he would be a bad fit for Hopkins; rather this page's problem with the selection is that he just spoke to the school earlier this year.
The price of birth control pills at Hopkins's Health and Wellness Center recently tripled. This change in federal law, a result of to the passage of the 2005 Deficit Reduction Act, prevented drug manufacturers from providing health centers at college campuses with discounts for birth control. For many young women, the price of birth control has become prohibitive, meaning that some will end up sacrificing vital control over their own sexual health. Birth control is a public health necessity, particularly on college campuses, where sexual health is arguably the predominant medical concern. The effect of this has potential to keep women from maintaining control over their own bodies.
This page has opined extensively on the general irrelevance of the Student Council and its chronic inability to achieve anything of genuine import to the student body. Climate change, Sudanese divestment, the loss of credit for internships - these are just a few of the many issues that have come to predominate the social and academic environments on campus without so much of a whimper from the Council.
For Baltimore's public schools, the statistics are dreary and getting worse. The most recent study shows that, with a shocking 38.5 percent graduation rate, the city's schools rank almost rock bottom among the nation's 50 largest school systems.
While appreciation for the new businesses in Charles Village may not be unanimous, it is heartening to know that so many students, locals and business owners are pleased with the neighborhood's new face. We harbored some misgivings at first, worried that existing stores would be put out to pasture by the new offerings, but it would appear that those concerns were unfounded.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is, no doubt, one of the most widely despised organizations in the United States. Their lawsuits and threats have reached into the lives of thousands. Their shrill denunciations of peer-to-peer (p2p) file sharing continue unabated despite evidence that such methods actually accompany increased music sales and exposure for artists. Indeed, it has become practically imperative for a burgeoning band to make tracks freely available online, on MySpace, for example.
Every person on this campus has a responsibility to reduce our collective energy consumption, and we're all doing a poor job of it -- from the bottom up.
The Student Council's recent meeting with administrators regarding a letter they sent last winter addressing the University policy on civility is a commendable gesture toward proactive engagement in campus issues -- but for a number of reasons, the Council's letter remains baffling.
On February 26, the Baltimore City Council approved a citywide ban on smoking that will prohibit the activity in bars in restaurants. In the past, we have questioned the wisdom of this measure, and continue to feel that such a ban is anathema to American ideals of civil liberty and ought to be outside the purview of government. However, what's done is done and, come next year, your preferred watering hole will be as smoke-free as an iron lung.
