Her colleagues say it’s an instantly identifiable sound in Archbold North’s 200 Suite, and one that ensures a lighthearted atmosphere amid the stressful realm of financial aid. It’s a sound they’ll certainly miss. SEE DEVESTY PAGE 6 Campaign works to improve, expand Heroy facilities By Shelby Netschke STAFF WRITER The inf latable globe that greets students as they enter Heroy Geology Building is just the start of a campaign to improve the building’s facilities. The earth sciences committee installed the globe last semester as a part of its plan to improve the reputation of the earth sciences department by renovating Heroy’s facilities, increasing donations and expanding opportunities for students. Syracuse University alumnus Page Chamberlain, professor of environmental earth system science at Stanford University, is co-chairing the committee with SU alumnus Carlos Dengo. Chamberlain said he represents the academic arm of the committee, while Dengo serves as the industry arm. The committee is renovating Heroy, Chamberlain said, so students can use it more effectively. As co-chair of this committee, he said, he is trying to continue to improve the reputation of SU’s earth science department. “The renovation is really a whole process of demonstrating to the world how important this earth science department is on campus, in New York state, nationally and internationally,” he said. Jeff Karson, chairman of the Department of Earth Sciences at SU, also works on the committee with Chamberlain and Dengo. Karson said the committee is trying to make Heroy look more like a place where people study earth sciences, instead of being nondescript. “What we want to do is make some changes in the department that make it a more hospitable and engaging place to be,” Karson said. Now that Karson’s biggest personal goal, the globe installation, has been completed, he said the committee is striving to fulfill more core needs of the department. “We’re hoping our fundraising will provide money to allow us to make some nice seating and collaborative areas for students in the building,” Karson said.

Doors to the show will open at 7:30 p.m. and the opener goes onstage at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Monday at the Schine Box Office and cost $5 for all Syracuse University and State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry students and staff with valid ID. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, Feb. 18 for $8 a ticket. “Booking Jukebox the Ghost was really a no-brainer,” said Bandersnatch Co-President Jeremy Strege. “They have a fun sound that’ll be sure to make it a great night.” Jukebox the Ghost, a Brooklyn, N.Y., three-piece band, has toured extensively since 2006, playing shows with Ben Folds and Jack’s Mannequin. The group released its latest album, “Safe Travels,” last summer, earning positive reviews from The Washington Post and Spin magazine. “I think having a rock band in a place like the Schine Underground really gives people an experience they can’t get elsewhere,” Strege said. “Especially with a band of this caliber, it’s rare that you see that kind of intimacy.” Strege said he thinks the band’s upbeat, catchy tunes will make the concert a memorable one. Said Strege: “I think we’ve really lucked out.” @TheRealVandyMan
