FROSTBURG, Md. (AP) — Frostburg State University's new president says the school will be analyzing why there has been an apparent increase in violence and bad behavior taking place on and around the campus.

Frostburg President Ron Nowaczyk tells the Cumberland Times-News that school officials will study the incidents over the summer and will work to determine the differences between the anecdotal stories and the facts.
