Campus safety
On Jan. 22 a senior graphic design major at Iowa State University stopped by a house party for a few drinks and left at about 9:30 p.m. He hasn't been seen since. For several days, search parties have scoured the campus and its surrounding neighborhoods, trying to find the 21-year-old, the Iowa State Daily reports. A similar search took place in April 2007 when another student went missing after a party. That student was later found submerged in a small lake on campus, and police think alcohol was involved.

A small technical college in rural Ohio will stay open today despite a threat scrawled on a dorm bathroom wall warning that all black students would be killed on Feb. 2.

Sex ed
Abstinence-only education might actually work, according to a new study by University of Pennsylvania researchers.

Step off
A Howard University sorority and a fraternity both placed first in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Final of the Sprite Step Off in New York City this weekend. They will be two of 12 Greek houses to face off at the National Finals next week, The Hilltop reports.

iPad predictions
A Google executive told bright-eyed journalism students at UC Berkeley last week that the iPad won't save traditional newspapers and magazines.

Student loans
Two years ago, Williams College in Massachusetts got rid of all of its loans and replaced them with direct scholarships that did not have to be repaid. But this week, following a $500 million drop in the school's endowment, Williams announced it would have to go back to offering loans, starting with the class of 2011.
