With the arrival of another fall semester, college officials wisely are renewing their annual pitches to steer students clear of risky binge-drinking - and some with a new twist. Binge-drinking leaves thousands of victims in its wake annually from accidental injury and death as well as sexual assault. It also can plant the seeds that lead to long-term problem-drinking. Colleges' anti-binging strategies typically include education and media campaigns, limiting or banning on-campus drinking, hosting alcohol-free events and late-night activities - even opening dining halls later to offer fortifying snacks so fewer students drink on an empty stomach.

Bucknell University has apologized for reporting inflated average SAT scores of its incoming freshmen to U.S. News & World Report for its annual rankings and to other outlets.

Bravman said in a statement Friday to Bucknell's board of trustees that also was sent to 55,000 alumni, faculty, and others. The math and reading scores for 13 to 47 students were omitted for those years, he said.

Eugene L. Krawitz was the catcher for the Hawley High School baseball team in the late 1940s, in a game against Honesdale High in Northeastern Pennsylvania. "The bases were loaded. Louie Graff was our pitcher and my brother called for a pickoff at third base," Mr. Krawitz's older brother, Edwin, recalled. But his brother's throw sailed into left field and a run scored. An inning or two later, the bases were loaded again and the same thing happened. When the outraged Hawley coach met Eugene Krawitz and the pitcher on the mound, he asked what the heck was happening.

LEWISBURG, Pa. - House Party at Bucknell University was a springtime rite of passage for decades of students, a weekend of live outdoor music, grilled food, and a festival atmosphere on campus. But the weekend was also known as a hazy few days of debauchery. Among the tamer pastimes: shots, beer pong, daytime boxed wine, sometimes all three. While the tradition of House Party appeared sacred on Bucknell's campus, university president John Bravman canceled the event in August, joining a growing band of officials across the state taking action against alcohol abuse.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to issue a definitive ruling Monday on the use of race in college admissions, instead ordering a lower court to re-examine the issue. The high court voted, 7-1, to send a University of Texas case - in which a white student denied admission challenged the university's use of race - back to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. It said the appellate court had failed to hold the university to sufficient scrutiny as it sought to prove race was an essential consideration in efforts to develop a diverse student body.
