Criticizing the decision to arm campus police - and the way in which it was made - about 150 Villanova University students, faculty, and staff staged a peaceful protest Friday. The move to give campus officers guns violates Catholic precepts, said the Rev. Allan Fitzgerald, director of the Augustinian Institute and a member of the theology department. "Rather than offer the principles of the NRA - more guns, less violence - we need to affirm the Catholic principles of peace and justice," he said.

Four hundred black students sat down on North Broad Street at Temple University for an hour and blocked traffic yesterday afternoon in a rally to protest what they said was the beating of eight black students Thursday by white campus police officers. Delivering impassioned pleas for racial justice and an end to what they said was police violence, the students demanded the resignation of the campus police chief and the firing of officers they allege used excessive force during a brawl between white fraternity members and black students.

The ousted police chief of Rutgers University in Camden has asked the school to schedule a hearing to explain his Oct. 2 firing and has notified Rutgers of his intention to take legal action over the discharge. Eugene Dooley, whose work had been praised by the university a few months before his termination, said yesterday that he expected to appear for a hearing within about two weeks. Dooley's attorney, Gil Brooks, said Dooley wasn't informed by the university of any wrongdoing and was not disciplined or suspended before the firing by Gary Urban, the director of administrative services.

It may be hard to believe, but Temple University's campus security force is the fourth-largest police department in Pennsylvania. And, until last week - when it became the focal point of a protest by African-American students - it had enjoyed a reputation as a highly trained, responsible police department, according to city, university and union officials. "We have, in my opinion, a very strong and effective working relationship with the Temple police," said Capt. Al Lewis, commander of the 22nd Police District, which patrols neighborhoods around the North Philadelphia campus.

Oakland A's slugger Jose Canseco was arrested yesterday after a University of California employee spotted a loaded semi-automatic pistol on the floor of Canseco's Jaguar. Canseco, last year's American League Most Valuable Player and the first major-leaguer to hit 40 homers and steal 40 bases the same season, was arrested about 2 p.m. outside the Laurel Heights complex of the University of California at San Francisco, police said. Canseco was booked on suspicion of possessing a firearm on university property, a felony, and possession of a loaded firearm in the passenger compartment of a vehicle, a misdemeanor.

Those off-the-field distractions that Penn State players and coaches proclaimed are over apparently have no expiration date. Although no charges have yet been filed by Penn State campus police, Lt. Bill Moerschbacher has said the department is investigating a loud party Tuesday night at the Nittany Apartments complex at which a "small amount" of marijuana was seized, after issuance of a search warrant. The apartment is shared by Penn State players A.J. Wallace, Andrew Quarless, Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma.

By Monday, the Willingboro School District will have the first component of a plan to curb school violence in place at Memorial Junior High School. Surveillance cameras are being installed in the hallways and stairwells. The next step could come this fall if the board of education approves implementing a campus police force at both the junior high school and Willingboro High School. In meetings later, the Willingboro Board of Education will review a proposal to hire four trained police officers - two in the junior high school and two in the high school - to provide security on school grounds and combat student violence.

The rally started with one voice. Then others at West Chester University - where sexual-assault reports have shot up in recent weeks - stopped amid the frenzy of finals Tuesday to listen. "My name is Shannon," Shannon Bertoni yelled as the group around her began to swell from a dozen to nearly 75. "I, like far, far too many of you, am one in five. " She was citing a statistic about the women who will be sexually assaulted during college, a statistic that received increased attention last month when the White House put heat on universities to combat the problem and issued new guidelines for doing so. That step, experts say, was spurred in part by an unprecedented wave of student activism like that seen last week in West Chester.

EWING, N.J. - The College of New Jersey feels a little bigger. Students moved in this week to Campus Town, a retail and housing complex attached to the campus but built and operated by a developer. The eight main buildings will have restaurants or shops on the first floor - such as a bar, a sushi restaurant, or a nail salon - and student housing above. Only Barnes & Noble has opened so far; the other shops are expected to be finished over the course of the year. Before classes started Tuesday, 446 students moved into the new apartments.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - New questions confronted the University of Colorado, Denver on Friday amid disclosures that a psychiatrist who treated theater-shooting suspect James Holmes had warned campus police a month before the deadly assault that Holmes was dangerous and had homicidal thoughts. Court documents made public Thursday revealed Dr. Lynne Fenton also told a campus police officer in June that the shooting suspect had threatened her. Fenton's blunt warning came more than a month before the July 20 attack at a movie theater that killed 12 and injured 70. Holmes had been a student in the university's neuroscience program but withdrew about six weeks before the shootings after failing a key examination.

DEAR ABBY: I met "Edward" at work six years ago. We were instantly attracted to each other and soon began an affair. We are both married to others. I never thought I could stray outside my marriage, even though my marriage has been very lonely. I love Edward more than I ever thought possible, but even though he has strong feelings for me, he says he will never file for divorce from his wife. We are still involved, but I am heartbroken that he doesn't want me enough to leave her. He has never said that he loves his wife, just that he doesn't believe in divorce.

Rowan University announced Tuesday that its 34 public safety officers have begun using body cameras. The devices will be activated when officers respond to incidents, including theft, assault, and illegal alcohol or drug use, which are the most common offenses on campus. Rowan says it is the first university in New Jersey to have officers use the cameras. It paid $95,000 for the cameras and for electronic space to store the footage. Rowan pulled money from its general fund, which includes tuition dollars, to cover the costs, university officials said.

ON TUESDAY NIGHT, I was watching the closing moments of the Big Ten game between No. 5 Wisconsin and No. 14 Maryland. The Terps pulled off a 59-53 upset at the sold-out Xfinity Center on their campus. In my younger days, I would not have had any feeling of trepidation as the student section was getting amped for the end of one of the biggest wins since head coach Mark Turgeon took over in 2011. A storming of the court was imminent, and, soon after the final buzzer, hundreds of yellow-clad fans rushed out of the student section in an all-out frenzy to join their players in the celebration on the court.

ACROSS THE country this past weekend, thousands of people marched in protest of police actions against Michael Brown, Eric Garner and others, adding to a steady drumbeat of protest that was ignited weeks ago when two separate grand juries refused to indict police in the deaths of the two black men. For many, this calls to mind a level of protest that this country hasn't seen in at least 50 years . . . and many would say that the issues are the...

Florida reserve quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg and teammate Gerald Willis got into a fight over a pair of missing cleats Monday night, according to the university's police department. He is a former St. Joseph's Prep star and the son of New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Mornhinweg suffered "small lacerations on his lower lip" and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, according to the police report. Willis had a "small cut on his chin" but did not get medical attention.

Pennsylvania's state-related universities would be required to disclose more information on salaries, contracts, and other business if legislation approved by a state Senate committee on Wednesday goes forward. The State Government Committee unanimously endorsed a proposal that would apply to Pennsylvania State, Temple and Lincoln Universities and the University of Pittsburgh, none of which now has to adhere to all provisions of the state's Right to Know Law. That has been a sore point for freedom of information advocates, especially as costs for higher education increase and in the aftermath of Penn State's child sex-abuse scandal.

WEST CHESTER West Chester University campus police are investigating what they are calling the third sexual assault in a week, university officials said Friday. A female student walking between Goshen and Tyson Halls about 12:30 a.m. Friday was approached by a man who appeared to be intoxicated and grabbed her buttocks, the police said. The woman pulled out pepper spray, and the man fled. University police said it was the fifth such incident in the last month, all of which they have referred to as sexual assaults.
