Jonathan Jusino spent his first year out of high school as a stock clerk and sales associate at a clothing store, and found it unfulfilling. "I noticed there was no future for me in the work I was doing," he said. So Jusino enrolled at Community College of Philadelphia last fall as a first step in pursuing a teaching career. With his financial aid, it would have taken him three years to get his associate's degree. But a program introduced by the college this semester will allow him to finish in 21/2.

  Dan Butsko knew somebody had to pull holiday duty, and because he lives halfway across the country, he thought he might as well be the one. Butsko, 21, of Dallas, Texas, will spend Christmas on Temple University's main campus, where he is a senior advertising and Spanish major and resident adviser in the 1940 building, a university dorm that remains open through semester break. "It's not really a huge holiday for my family," he said. "I don't mind it. " A growing number of students have been opting to stay on campus during the holidays in recent years, Temple officials say. The university estimates about 500 students will remain for at least some portion of the winter break, which began Dec. 14 and ends Jan. 20. That includes the period from Dec. 24 through Jan. 1, when the campus is officially closed.

Denzel Parker-Dixon, 19, was the only one in his group of friends to sign up for college. But now at the Community College of Philadelphia, he has found a place where the staff and students have his back. That place is the Center for Male Engagement. At Montgomery County Community College, the Minority Male Mentoring Program fulfills a similar need. Both programs use guidance to try to keep their African American participants engaged in school. "Without the program, I probably would be out of school," said Parker-Dixon, a Frankford High School graduate.

Temple University president Peter J. Liacouras said yesterday he favors a "controlled" introduction of liquor to the campus but wants to keep the five blocks of N. Broad Street near the school "liquor-free. " Liacouras told members of the Temple board of trustees that he would agree to one of four proposals made last month by a committee of students and administrators studying whether to end the 102-year-old tradition prohibiting liquor on the North Philadelphia campus. He said the present policy should be "restated" to allow school officials to "explore" the possibility of putting a restaurant serving beer and wine within campus boundaries.

Some black alumni of Camden County College, angry that an African American dean did not make the final list in the search for a new college president, have asked college officials to reconsider.

Two African Americans and a female administrator from Philadelphia were on the list. Bob Barringer, interim college president and a consultant to the search committee, said the board of trustees had asked him not to consider candidates employed at the college.

Pennsylvania State University, which is under federal scrutiny for its handling of sexual assault cases, is creating a task force to better investigate and prevent such incidents on campus, the president announced Wednesday. In an e-mail to Penn State staff, president Eric J. Barron said "we are confident" that the university's policies comply with Title IX, the law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex and requires universities to investigate sexual assaults. "However," he wrote, "I do not believe that we should be satisfied with compliance - instead we should become a true leader in the prevention of sexual assault and in investigating and adjudicating student-on-student sexual assault cases while best protecting the wishes, and where appropriate and possible, the confidentiality of the survivors.

For a man whose mission has been to make a college campus more open and accepting of difference, Jose Rodriguez's office is exactly as it should be. In cramped Room 208 of the Lares Building at Penn State Abington, he is pleasantly besieged. On the couch, a Latina from Philadelphia studies with a freshman who immigrated three years ago from Saudi Arabia. A Muslim student drops by to borrow a prayer rug. The parade in and out is ceaseless. Unruffled by the commotion around him, Rodriguez types e-mail correspondence for yet another event that he - both the director of intercultural affairs and the men's and women's cross-country track coach - is putting together.

The state university system will suspend, discontinue or merge dozens of degree programs that are under-enrolled across its 14 campuses, officials said Wednesday. The bachelor's and master's programs being culled by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education cut across disciplines, from foreign languages to physics. Fifteen are being discontinued and at least 55 others placed in moratorium, meaning no new students will be accepted. Students currently enrolled in those majors - including incoming freshmen - will be able to finish their degrees, system officials said.
