I suspect a user might be playing around in Active Directory and wondering if there is a way to find out who has been logging on to the server? She had reset her password for the domain and I think she may have done that on her own without my permission - so want to see if she is indeed getting into the server somehow....is there a way to find out?

How are they accessing?  RDP, VNC, Logmein, or physically?

I don't know for sure  - not physically logging in - would have to be RDP or VNC  - something like that probably.

When the RDP in the user account should not have administrator priviledges.

Also time to change the VNC password. If they need to VNC setup VNC with a read only password give them that one.

Something that malicious should be documented.  Just record their user sessions on their workstations and catch them in the act:

Install UltraVNC:
