When Rider University announced plans last month to close some academic programs and lay off 14 faculty members, it cited financial struggles and a need "to adapt to the changing climate. " Those challenges are familiar to many other small and mid-sized private colleges in the region. Among the chief concerns: a shrinking pool of traditional college-bound students, continually increasing costs, and a constant need to prove value. For private colleges, lack of state funding leads to dependency on tuition dollars; for smaller schools, enrollment can vary wildly and is never guaranteed.

Planned faculty layoffs at Rider University and the elimination of some majors have been averted as a result of a two-year wage freeze approved by the faculty union. "It was a pretty bitter pill," Jeff Halpern, contract administrator for the Rider chapter of the American Association of University Professors, said Friday. The alternative - to go to arbitration over the cuts first proposed by the school in Lawrence Township, N.J., on Oct. 29 - would have been too disruptive to students, Halpern said.

It is dark when the alarm goes off. It remains dark well past that first cup of coffee. Fear not, sleepyhead, for help is on the way Sunday - in the form of that annual mass reprogramming of digital devices that comes with the end of daylight saving time. But coping with the shift requires more than just turning clocks back by an hour, sleep medicine specialists warn. Many people will feel off their game for a day or two, and those with existing sleep issues can take up to a week to recover, said Philip Gehrman, an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine.

When John Bochanski was 7, he would sit on the porch at night in Washington Township and watch as his grandfather pointed out the constellations. By 12, he was reading everything he could find about astronomy. The following year, he saved up more than $400 from his Gloucester County paper route to buy an 8-inch telescope. Lately he has been setting his sights quite a bit farther: more than 5 quintillion (five followed by 18 zeroes) miles away. That is the distance between Earth and the most distant known star in the Milky Way - a "cool red giant" that Bochanski helped discover while a visiting assistant professor at Haverford College.
