Guest Column: Help is here
by The Diamondback

“The two suicides of university students during the past week and a half are tragic endings to promising young lives. College is an exciting and sometimes stressful time for students. It is also a time when mental illness can strike and, when left untreated, can lead to tragedy.”

Safety: Not fixed with just a campus map
by The Diamondback
Apr 09, 2009
“The safety map could actually make crime worse in College Park. It's one thing for students to talk about what parts of town are dangerous, but another entirely for a respected authority - in this case, the city's largest public institution, landowner and employer - to lay out where people should and shouldn't go, which could be a major blow to the city's image and economy.”

by The Diamondback
Apr 09, 2009
“Crime is always going to be high if you don't address poverty. The best way to reduce off-campus crime would be to revitalize the College Park community and make this area of Prince George's County better off. Easier said than done.”

Pedestrian safety signs not enough, council says
by The Diamondback
Apr 09, 2009
“Months of lobbying the State Highway Administration for improved pedestrian safety along Route 1 in College Park has produced only a handful of traffic signs that city officials doubt will have any value.
The city made a series of requests last year, asking for new and refurbished crosswalks, a ban on downtown U-turns, improved pedestrian signals and signs reminding drivers of a state law requiring drivers to stop for pedestrians.”
