I have users who logs on at spuratic times (university). Is there a command or log on the cisco device I can set so I can track over time mac addresses that appear on the interfaces as they come up. So what im saying is that if user: Bob only logs in at 8pm at night; the next morning i can review a log that says on port 0/12 went to state of up with mac address whatever.

The following parameter will write to the log when the link goes up or down:

logging event link-status

That's not going to help you if a machine is left on between logons.  It's also possible that even if the machine is shutdown, the NIC stays linked.  I think you would be better off setting up auditing on your logon server.
