"Only the groundhogs get it fresher," read a sheet that Frederick W. McConnell Jr. used to hand to customers at his fruit orchard in a back-roads Montgomery County village. At other times of the year, his students at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pa., might have felt they couldn't get insights any fresher than they got from him, during the three decades that he taught philosophy there. In dedicating its yearbook to Dr. McConnell, the Class of 1970 wrote that "he is the closest thing to a genius on campus.

It was an evening out that college students Leslie Pope and John Wagner will long remember. Not only did they get what they called lousy service, they got handcuffed and arrested. All over a $16.35 tip. They were with a half-dozen friends at the Lehigh Pub in Bethlehem last month, so the establishment tacked what it called a mandatory 18 percent gratuity onto the bill of about $73, according to reports. Pope and Wagner refused to pay. "You can't give us terrible, terrible service and expect a tip," said Pope, a 22-year-old Moravian College senior who's a Pottsville native, according to the Lehigh Valley Express-Times . They had to find their own napkins and cutlery while their waitress caught a smoke, had to ask the bar for soda refills, and had to wait over an hour for salad and wings, they told NBC10.

Capt. Christopher Seifert went to college with one goal in mind, to be an Army officer. He wore his army fatigues proudly on the Moravian College campus in Bethlehem, where he graduated with a history degree in 1997. He'd file into Robert Stinson's history class in fatigues after ROTC training. He'd show up in full uniform to act as ambassador to prospective students and recruiter to ROTC candidates. "As passionate as he was to be a soldier, it's hard to accept that his life was taken by another American soldier," said retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Wolfenden, who recruited Seifert to the ROTC program that Moravian students take at neighboring Lehigh University.

The chairman of the NCAA Board of Directors opposes any suggestion that student-athletes be paid or unionized because it would violate the mission of colleges and universities. Ohio State University president William E. Kirwan called pay-for-play proposals "a non-starter. " "To many, it seems simple," he said yesterday. "We should pay for play. It is a bad idea and it has nothing to do with cost. Intercollegiate athletics were founded on the principle of students in extracurricular activity.

Sidney Tillim is not one to latch onto whatever comes along. Yet he is the "glue" that binds together a venturesome "new methods and materials" show at Moravian College. It involves Tillim and three younger artists in their 30s - a painter and two sculptors - each of whom is acquainted with this prominent painter and former teacher. Tillim also is well-known as a writer for leading American art journals. All four of the featured exhibitors live either in New York City or upstate New York.

Last season, Manor College men's soccer coach Bill Crowley said he had more talent on his team than he did the year before. The Blue Jays finished 16-1, won the Pennsylvania Collegiate Athletic Conference title for the fourth time in seven years, and claimed their sixth straight Eastern Pennsylvania Community College Athletic Conference crown. Crowley says this year's team is more talented than last year's, even though just four players return. The rest of the teams in the conference should take notice.

Kate McGonigle's first coaching job will be a high-pressure, high-profile situation, but the 23-year-old graduate of Maple Shade and Moravian College is looking forward to guiding one of the state's premier girls' soccer programs. McGonigle was named yesterday as the head girls' soccer coach at Gloucester Catholic. She inherits a team that went 25-0 last season, was ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, and won its second consecutive state Group 2 championship. The Rams will lose only one starter, senior midfielder Kate Mullen, and could break into the national rankings next season.
