Like many classically trained musicians who have been honing their talents since kindergarten, Andrew Bogard never made physical fitness a priority. "The emphasis in our education puts us in a small four-walled practice room for a majority of the time," Bogard said. A gifted singer, he took his body for granted. With a little help from Haagen-Dazs dulce de leche, by the time he turned 20 he had developed a respectable gut. Since opera singers command a large presence on stage, he didn't mind, even believing that the heft around his belly probably helped project his voice.

Pennsylvania State University finds itself at the center of another scandal with sexual overtones as police investigate allegations that members of a fraternity posted pictures of nude women, some of whom appeared to be sleeping or passed out, on private Facebook pages. The Penn State chapter of Kappa Delta Rho has been suspended for one year by its national office in the wake of the allegations and ongoing investigation, the national organization announced Tuesday afternoon. A former member of Kappa Delta Rho tipped off police to two invitation-only Facebook pages in January, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed by police in State College.

A task force will review Pennsylvania State University's Greek system in the wake of revelations that a fraternity shared online pictures of naked women while they were asleep or passed out, the school's president said Monday. "This comprehensive examination of fraternity and sorority life and its culture will not be simple and it may not be comfortable," Eric Barron said. His announcement came in a statement Monday evening but had been in the offing for days, after news of Kappa Delta Rho's private Facebook pages stirred up a growing chorus of calls for action.

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. Jacquelyn McLaughlin, dean of student affairs for 17 years and a member of the administration for 23 years, was not on a list of seven finalists released last week. 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.

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.

In the latest whiplash-inducing turn of events at Stockton University, its outgoing president said Tuesday he is stepping down immediately rather than four months from now, as the school initially announced. Herman J. Saatkamp Jr., amid controversy over his stymied attempt to locate a Stockton campus in the former Showboat casino in Atlantic City, announced last week that he would step down some time after Aug. 31. On Tuesday, he announced he was taking an immediate medical leave. Harvey Kesselman, the university's provost, will become acting president.

Standing in front of about 100 people - black, white, Latino, Indian, male, female, young, old - Lisa Croft talked about the elephant in the room. "It's not just there to sit and look pretty," she said. "Sometimes we need courageous people to . . . say what that elephant is. " That was the essence of the discussion at the daylong "Courageous Conversation" at West Chester University on Saturday. The diverse crowd talked about "implicit" biases: ingrained beliefs that can influence behavior, often subconsciously.

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.

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.

  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.
