THE FRESHMAN ISSUE WELCOME ABOARD Fall 2013 | 1


to get involved. Not just in your classes, but outside the classroom. It can be scary moving to a new school, new city, and not knowing anyone. The best way to resolve that issue is to get out there and meet people. RMU has a number of clubs, sports, and other activities you can get involved with. You could always join the newspaper and I am not just saying that because I am biased or anything. I wish you all good luck in this first week of classes and for the rest of the year. I hope that you all enjoy your time here at RMU and if you like, pick up a copy of The Eagle to keep you occupied during a boring lecture. (Just kidding. Don’t do that. You should pay attention during your classes. All the professors are great and never give boring lectures. Don’t read The Eagle during lectures.) Sincerely,

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

THE FIRST YEAR First off, I would like to welcome all incoming freshmen, transfer, and new graduate students to Robert Morris University – Illinois and welcome back to all returning students. As we dive into another year at RMU, I am excited to announce some awesome changes The Eagle has made. If you are a returning student, you might notice that The Eagle looks very different than it has over the past year. That would be thanks to our new Art Director, Austin Huette. Austin wanted a new look for the paper and I could not agree more: a new year, a new look. This is the annual Freshmen Issue! The Eagle staff has worked very hard to bring you content that will entertain, help, and guide you through your time at college. RMU has a unique college atmosphere. We don’t have a large open campus like some state schools, but instead, we have the amazing city of Chicago. Going to school in Chicago has opened up many opportunities for me as both writer and artist, and I hope the same for you. Moving to college can be quite the adjustment for many students though. My one piece of advice for freshmen is

THE BEST IS YET TO COME A letter from the Art Director.

When I was younger, I imagined how cool it would be to design something that thousands of people would see. I’m proud to say that dream has become my reality. Welcome to the re-designed Eagle. I’ve dedicated hundreds of hours of work and an un-human amount of caffeine to this issue. Let me take you through my vision. I've always subscribed to the theory of “Social Design”. Collaboration with others is a huge part of what I do as a designer and is a key role to some of my work. With this new design, I broke my own rules. I spent a lot of my time in the Publication room or at home in front of my computer working on this issue alone. From the first draft of the masthead to the final page of this paper, I did it my way. Of course I have presented this copy to the rest of the Eagle staff and made some suggested changes, but most of what you see has been custom-tailored to look and feel absolutely beautiful – at least to my tastes. There are a few people that deserve a mention for the completion of this design. First and foremost, my girlfriend. Our free time usually doesn't align with each other's schedules, but she wouldn't get too upset when I had to spend it working on this. Paul, our fearless leader and Eagle Advisor. Thank you for giving me the creative freedom and resources to finish this on time and on point. Blake, our Editor-in-Chief. If you hadn't have been promoted to your current title, this probably never would have happened. So thank you for your dedication to the paper. And finally without you, our readers, the staff wouldn't have ever had this opportunity. My most sincere thanks to you all. I hope that this re-design lives up to your expectations and I hope that it lasts for the years to come. We’ve only tasted the wine. -Austin Huette

STRIVING TO HELP FORMER GRAD STUDENT'S MISSION TO HELP WOMEN IN THE WORKFORCE DAN CIAGLIA hen Nina Rodriguez was studying to earn her MBA at Robert Morris University, she came across a rather troubling statistic: out of all the companies on the Fortune 1,000 list, the 1,000 largest companies in the United States, only 4.6% of them had a female Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Rodriguez recalled, “I became aware of the harsh reality of the low number of women in upper management positions.Those numbers are pretty staggering considering that as of 2011, 58.1% of women are in the workforce.” Baffled by these realities, Rodriguez became determined to not only find out why the number of women in upper management positions was so

That’s why Morris Women was created: to give women the opportunity to build these skills.” As their mentor, Rodriguez supports the new officers through her insights and experience in establishing the organization herself. When she finished grad school in November, establishing the organization’s presence on campus fell by the wayside. Now that Rodriguez is back and more involved with Morris Women, her goal is to revive that presence. According to Rodriguez, there is no better time than right here and now to reestablish an organization like Morris Women.

RMU Visits DIRTT HEATHER ALEXANDER uring week 6 of the Summer II quarter, Dr. Catherine Stark’s BPS 380 Facilities Management class went on a field trip to Doing It Right This Time (DIRTT), located at 325 N. Wells—directly across the street from Merchandise Mart. DIRTT is a company dedicated to designing and building sustainable wall partitions that can be multifunctional. We all know about solar and wind energy, but what other ways can a building be sustainable? DIRTT, for example, does not use any harsh chemicals in the development of their products. In fact, the insulation within the walls is made from recycled denim! The walls can be easily separated, reconstructed, and designed to create an entirely dif-

ferent space. The main reason for the trip was to engage students in sustainable construction practices. Upon entering the penthouse facility, students were amazed at the various structures contained within the facility. Students

were split into two groups in order to tour the penthouse quickly and efficiently. Groups took turns going in and out of model rooms that were designed as examples of everything that DIRTT has to offer and is capable of achiev-

ing. The model rooms included a bedroom, classroom, living room (which also served as a bedroom), patient room, office, bathroom, and a kitchen. Each room was equipped with materials to make the space more livable and inviting. Not only were the spaces designed to be environmentally friendly; some of their partners also supplied ergonomic friendly furniture such as desks and cabinet work. Even though taking this class is a requirement for all students in the BPS program; it also teaches aspects of design and management that can be very beneficial to all fields of study. To learn more about DIRTT, visit the location or check out www.dirtt.net. E


LIFEHACK #253: If you have the opportunity, study abroad. The only regret I have from undergrad is not doing that. Don't make the same mistakes as me.....and, oh, yeah, LIKE and SHARE the Turtle. -Michael Stelzer Jocks, History Faculty

MAKING A GLOBAL IMPACT THROUGH THE ICENTER ADRIAN SAUCEDO he ICenter is one of RMU’s greatest resources for students, as it allows them to earn credentials and valuable experience while working with real clients. It is a real life work experience because the students are involved in making decisions; they have responsibilities and work collaboratively in a creative and supportive environment. One of the latest projects of the ICenter involves Chris Nassar, Associate Dean and Curriculum Chair for the Institute of Technology & Media at RMU, and his students. The project deals with computer networking and is considered a success, not only for the results, but also because it was presented to a global company,World Computer Exchange (WCE). WCE is a nonprofit organization established in the United States and Canada that recycles discarded computers, repairs them, and sends them to developing countries. They have been bringing technology to youth around the world, especially to schools from kindergarten to high school. They have partnerships with companies in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, usingglobal networking to promote the improvement of countries and the reuse of electronics. The project Dean Nassar and his students worked on was to develop a content server for WCE. According to Jill McGinty, Dean of Distance Learning, the WCE was looking to “setup a network with a large server” because the content needed on a PC is substantial and more than one person needs access to that computer. As Dean McGinty points out, RMU students are “making an impact on a global scale” all through computer networking. Danny Trejo and Kyle Sartoris are two of the RMU students who worked on the project under the supervision and direc-

tion of Dean Nassar. Both students are Computer Networking majors and are grateful for being part of this ambitious project. According to these students, their team was in charge of developing a network to share files. In addition, they installed web servers to install files and created a Local Area Network using three or four computers utilizing Ubuntu, the most popular free OS, as an operating system. Sartoris impressed the client and his team with an idea he developed as a solution to a problem they were having with the servers . He is still waiting for an update as to whether or not his idea worked. Sartoris and Trejo believe that working in the ICenter “was a great experience” and they encourage students to apply because they will gain the professional experience necessary to start their careers. At the ICenter, students can earn course credit towards their degree. ICenter courses may replace CMT 440 with the following projects: ICP 350 and ICP 450, an internship class, or a free elective. To receive credit, you must seek the Dean’s approval. Past projects have ranged from learning the programming language, creating an app on an iPhone, creating marketing videos, and managing accounting procedures for well-established organizations. RMU students are making a real life impact in their communities and beyond with the resources provided in the ICenter. For more information, visit the ICenter, located at 401 S State St, call 1-800762-5960, or send an email to icenter@ robertmorris.edu. E

ALPFA: PROVIDING CAREER RESOURCES FOR RMU STUDENTS DAN CIAGLIA s an undergrad student at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, Daniel Hamm was an active member of an Entrepreneurship Club that introduced him to a wealth of possibilities in advancing his career. As a member, Daniel was exposed to various networking events, business seminars, and attended many lectures given by professionals in the business world in order to help him establish connections, gain professional interaction, and help him achieve a higher understanding of where he wanted his career to be when he finished school. Clubs and organizations like this have existed across college campuses for decades. On a much broader base, the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting, more commonly known as ALPFA, have been assisting young people in establishing business connections and net-

Hamm, who is originally from Germany, said the organization will begin holding events in the Fall ’13 quarter. He will also serve on the RMU chapter’s officer board as the President along with fellow grad students Ryan Ward (Vice President) and Lidia Rosales (Secretary). Hamm said, “if you’re in college, especially an undergrad freshmen or sophomore, ALPFA can help you get a better idea of where you want to go with your career and get a notion of why you’re in school studying.

RMU Peoria: A Melting Pot of Experiences AARON WILSON ocation is one of the primary advantages to attending Robert Morris University at the Peoria campus. Besides affordable housing and other living expenses, this particular site sits square in the middle of a melting pot of innovation and culture. In just a one-mile radius of the school, there are venues of just about every industry imaginable for incoming students to become involved in. Sports are just one area of interest in the downtown area. The Peoria Civic Center is one block north of the campus building. Year-round, there are entertainment exhibitions held there showcasing travelling acts from professional wrestling, monster truck competitions, the Harlem Globetrotters, and professional rodeo. Semi-professional hockey is also played there. A minor league baseball affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals plays in their own stadium located a block further, all walking distance from the Peoria RMU campus. Peoria is very deep rooted in all fine

arts. Weekly events are featured together at www.artspartners.net. Vaudeville, credited as “the heart of American show business,” was big in Peoria and spread into the current forms of Broadway and Hollywood acting. Its humble beginnings spawned from the Madison theater located just blocks from campus, a beautiful historical reminder of times past. Yet, the essence of theater holds its roots even now. Local theater productions both indoors and out can be enjoyed at several sites around town all year round. The Peoria Symphony Orchestra is gearing up now for a fresh season. Conductors, groups, and individual artists known the world over perform at the Peoria Civic Center Theater where a Broadway series is also featured throughout the winter and spring months. The Peoria Municipal band is always a local favorite as they play hundreds of selections to audiences of thousands. They play every Wednesday and Sunday throughout the summer at the Glen Oak Amphitheater. The Peoria Art Guild is also located

just 2 blocks from campus. The work of many local artists from all genres and media are highlighted all year, leading up to an Art Fair held on the riverfront annually. This year’s 51-year anniversary show will be held during the last weekend of September, featuring over 150 local, national, and international artists. The Contemporary Arts Center is also located along the riverfront. A gallery is housed there along with live music performances, open mic nights, and cultural dance classes each weekend. A few other spots around that same section round out an arts community dedicated to immersion into its wide variety of genres. The city’s cultural assortment is also one of its fine qualities. For a smaller metropolitan city, the population boasts a large spectrum of people from every continent. Throughout the year, festivals are held at the riverfront and in parades through downtown to commemorate traditions of distinct nationalities, and everyone’s invited to join the revelry. A variety of food, dance,

and demonstrations of tradition fill the agenda. The German Society’s Octoberfest, Erin Feis, Lebanese celebrations, and Latin festivals are but a few events hosted on the Riverfront. Besides the city’s own bloom of events, RMU hosts its own selection of activities to fill the calendar. Men’s and women’s hockey, soccer, volleyball, bowling, and football have seasons here. Other class related activities, a Film Club, and quarterly student gatherings are also offered to students. Just coming to and from school puts students elbow to elbow with professionals from various fields. An advanced and accelerated climate adds so many facets to any student looking to mature into their own stature of success. The actual school area itself is expanding in pace with the university’s integration with some home-grown customs. The curriculum is well respected among professional peers. With sincere effort, students can do nothing but prosper. E

RAMEN WITH A TWIST Ramen Noodle Recipes for a Tight Budget STACY ZAMSKAYA amen noodles have become known as the staple of a college student’s diet. When trying to survive on a tight budget, these fried noodles have much to offer. With its unbeatable low cost and fast cooking time, ramen has remained a favorite food to prepare at residence halls. What many students

do not realize is that ramen does not have to always taste the same. Try adding variety to your noodles with spices, canned vegetables, lunch meat, or any other ingredient which can easily be found in a dorm room. Here are some recipes that turn plain ramen into a delicious meal.

Ramen Mussolini

2-4 tsp chipotle sauce 6 frozen chicken nuggets Directions: 1. Prepare the noodles while the chicken nuggets are cooking. 2. Add crushed ramen noodles to boiling water and turn off stove, allowing the ramen to stand. 3. Once the chicken nuggets are ready, cut each one into four pieces. 4. Strain noodles and mix in the chicken and the shrimp flavor pack. 5. Add honey, mustard, and chipotle sauce. 6. If the mixture is too dry, you may need to add a little bit of hot water. 7. Stir and enjoy!

Ingredients: 1 package chicken flavor ramen 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp shredded Parmesan cheese A few dashes to taste of Sriracha chili sauce 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 tbsp bread crumbs Directions: 1. Prepare the chicken ramen. Cook for the usual time, add seasoning after it finishes boiling. Allow the ramen to sit, covered, for a few minutes to absorb flavor and then drain the liquid. 2. Add olive oil, and stir. 3. Add Srichacha chili sauce and stir very, very thoroughly. 4. Add chopped onion, Parmesan cheese, and bread crumbs. 5. Stir it all up and enjoy!

Sweet and Spicy Lo Mein

Ingredients: 1 package shrimp flavored ramen 2 tbsp honey 1 tbsp mustard

Asian Noodle Salad

Ingredients (Serves 4): 2 packages chicken ramen 2 tsp chili oil 3 tbsp rice vinegar 1 handful fresh basil, chopped 1 handful cilantro, chopped 1 head lettuce, chopped Optional add-ins: grilled shrimp or

grilled chicken Directions: 1. Cook both packages of ramen, adding only one seasoning packet to the water. 2. Drain, add noodles back into pot. 3. Add chili oil, rice vinegar, and stir. (If you don’t mind how the basil and cilantro look wilted, add them now. If you want the herbs to be pretty, wait until the noodles are chilled) 4. Chill noodles in the fridge. 5. When the noodles are cold, put a handful or more of lettuce in bowls. Place large spoonful of the chilled ramen on top. Add chicken or shrimp (optional).

Hamburger Alfredo Ramen

Ingredients: 1 hamburger patty, fried 2 packages chicken ramen and flavor packs 1 tbsp seasoning salt 1 tsp A-1 sauce 1 tsp Worcester sauce 2 slices American cheese Directions: 1. Fry hamburger and add seasoning salt, A-1 Sauce, and Worcester sauce. 2. Cut pre-cooked hamburger into 1/4

PLACES TO EAT Around the Chicago Campus JESSI BAHENA ith the plethora of new freshmen students, as well as out of state students, knowing where to grab a bite in a new area may seem to be overwhelming for some. With restaurants at every turn, it’s hard to decide

which one to choose. If living in the UC, experiencing other food other than what they serve there may be nice for some. It’s always nice to experience a new, and different place every time. But no fear, here is a quick introduction to this lovely area, and it’s abundance of delicious restaurants.

GINO'S EAST raving some pizza for lunch? About 2 blocks from campus, Gino's East is one of the many favorable Chicago pizza joints. They are located at 521 S Dearborn Street. Their menu has plenty of Italian favorites to offer. They have appetizers, soup of the day, and a family platter for those larger parties. They serve salads as well, and of course you can add chicken to every salad that on the menu, plus they serve a family sized salad. There are also sandwiches that are served fries or salad, sorry vegetarians these sandwiches aren’t for you. Their menu offers the classic strombolis. This legendary, flakey crust stuffed with flavorful fillings, and is also served with pasta salad or fries. They also have a spinach Stromboli for the vegetarians. They have an assortment of pastas that are served with garlic bread, a salad or soup. Many of the pastas are meatless, but meatballs, chicken, and Italian sausage can be added for an additional cost. So now the tough part has just arrived, deep dish or thin crust? Deep dish pizza

is what Chicago is known for, but don’t be discourage to try their delicious thin crust. Most of their pizzas selections are pretty straightforward, they are a good choice for meat lovers as well as vegetarian, or the plain classic cheese lovers. Appetizers price start from $4-$13, salads are $6-$10, unless you add chicken it’ll be an additional $2.50. Sandwiches are $7-$9, and their strombolis are all $9.25. Pasta ranges from $10-$14, unless you add meat. In that case chicken, meatballs, and Italian sausage is an additional cost of $2.50. Now pizza is a tough estimate, considering price differs on selection of toppings, and of course size, and your choice between deep dish and thin crust. If you are on a lunch break from school, or in between classes. Gino's East offers a lunch special between the hours of 12-2 pm Monday-Friday. It includes their class 6” inch deep dish with your choice of cheese, sausage, or pepperoni. It also comes with a salad and a soft drink for a nice price of $8.

CAFECITO cute Cuban Coffee House that is located a couple feet from the Wabash entrance of campus. Hours are Monday-Friday 7 am-9pm, and Saturday and Sunday are open 10 am6pm. They serve delicious hot pressed sandwiches and awesome coffee. Their hot pressed sandwiches are Cuban classics. Their gourmet sandwiches are made to order with all natural ingredients. Their meat is marinated with their own homemade mojo sauce. They also serve meatless sandwiches for those that are meat free individuals. They also make platters, which are served with white rice, black beans, and of course, plantains! Unfortunately, all their platters are served with meat. Sorry veg

heads! But they do make a mean specialty salad that is meatless, or you can add chicken for an additional cost. They also can serve up just plain white rice, or white rice and black beans, or a black bean soup. Okay its coffee time; they serve Cuban coffee, which is very delicious, if you love coffee. They also make regular coffee, mocha latte, cappuccino, espresso, caramel latte, tea, and chai latte. If you’re there early before school, they also make a mean breakfast sandwich, which is served from 7am-11am. Depending on you order, sandwiches range $4-$8, all platters are $9.25, salads are $6 unless you chicken its an additional $2.25, coffee varies on size which may range from $1.50-$3.50, and breakfast sandwiches are $3-$5.

EPIC BURGER very one loves a good burger every now and then. Burgers are sweet and simple, also delicious. Located at 517 S State Street, right across the street from campus. They’re open 7 days a week. Monday-Thursday they’re open 11 am-10 pm, Friday and Saturday they’re open 11 am-11 pm, and Sunday they’re open 11 am- 9pm. They cook with all natural beef, organic ice cream and milk, cage free organic eggs, nitrate free bacon, daily baked buns. They never use frozen patties, and they cook burgers your burger as soon as you place your

order. Their menu is pretty straightforward. Although they sell burgers made with beef, they also offer a turkey burger, bunless burger portobello sandwich, and the never tiresome classic grilled cheese. They have fries and salad to go along with that tasty burger. As for drinks, they have handmade premium milk shakes, skinny shakes (for those of whom are trying to watch their figure), bottled natural soda, real fruit smoothies, and of course the class fountain drink. Their prices are average, a burger, fries, and a drink can be from $9-$15, depending on your specific order. E

SAFETY TIPS Tips for Staying Safe While Attending College in the City BLAKE WHITMORE any first time college kids are moving out and on their own for the first time in their lives. It can be exciting, scary, and full of new experiences. While freshmen minds may only be focusing on the hope of parties, staying out late, and no more official curfew, there are dangers out there, especially on an urban campus. Here are some tips that all college students should know to stay safe.

1

Lock your doors

Make sure your dorm room or apartment is safely secured by keeping your doors locked at all times, especially if you are sleeping or going out. If you are moving into an off campus apartment, check the exterior doors and windows to make sure they have good locks. If the locks do not appear sturdy, ask your landlord or building manager to replace them. For those at the University Center, do not prop open residence hall doors. They are locked to keep you safe.

2

Know your surroundings

Stay on well-lit and well-traveled pathways. Remove ear buds or headphones so you can hear someone approaching. If possible, plan to walk around the city or to late night classes with a friend. If you are walking to a car, carry your keys in your hand. Before entering the car, check that no one is inside or lingering nearby. Most importantly, trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe, leave the area as quickly as possible.

3

Program emergency and taxi service numbers into your cell phone.

Label your parents’ or guardians’ numbers in your phone as ICE (In Case of Emergency). If anything happens, the

12 | The Eagle

Chicago Police Department or paramedics can know who your emergency contacts are. If it is late and you are not sober or do not feel safe walking home, it can be handy to have taxi services’ phone numbers in your phone.

4

Keep an eye on your belongings

Don't leave your laptop, cell phone, or anything of value on a table in the library, in a classroom, or in any of the social and study lounges at the University Center. Walk with your purse or backpack fully zipped. When riding on transit, keep valuables in your purse or backpack as much as possible.

5

Know your limits

6

Report any suspicious activity or people

When you're drinking at a party, know when enough is enough. If you're feeling sick, ask your friends to leave with you. Opt for a can of beer instead of a Solo cup. If cups are the only option, pour your own drink or watch the person who does.

Do not let unknown people into your dorm room, even if they say they know your roommate and your roommate is not present. If there is a stranger in your dorm or apartment, call the security desk immediately. Do not confront the person.

7

Ask for help

If you feel unsafe, stressed, or overwhelmed, reach out to those around you. Resident Advisors are trained and they can help you if you need someone to talk to about personal problems or problems with roommates. RMU also offers free counseling sessions with trained professionals. Take advantage of the services provided. E

THE CHICAGO WALKER BLENDING LIKE PAINT TCW here is always trouble with fitting in with a new place. Is it the fact that one feels so alone in a time such as this, or is it a feeling that everyone else is not feeling that exact same way? Sometimes we tend to forget that we are not the only ones to feel left out or alone; at 3 o’clock in the morning, sometimes it is the only thing I think about. As I walk down the street at a time this early or late (whichever you prefer), I get the feeling that we are all more alike than we know. To understand why we all feel lonely and unpopular, it is relevant to understand what being popular is. First and foremost, being popular deals with being outgoing. It is a strange thing to explain, but in my opinion, sometimes being a person people like deals with acting like you already know them. Most of the friends I have now were the first to initiate conversation with me, and the strange feeling that I had already known them but could not place how was partially the driving force to keep the conversation going. Ignoring our anonymity is one of the biggest ways of making friends. It eliminates the feeling of awkwardness that comes from asking the older gentleman next to you what time it is. Another thing I have come to notice is that I have an easier time befriending people that look like, act like, or have the same name as a person I already know. There is a bit about this that one could very well call psychology; I befriend people that are alike because my person-

ality is compatible with theirs. This is sometimes the case but has yet to make itself an absolute. What I think is that it has more to do with something my Communications teacher, Gerard Dedara, pointed out, in that the mind remembers information by comparing it to information it already knows. If memory states that the information you gather is in accordance to something you already know, that information is easier to store. That is the reason why we like foods that taste like foods we already like or do activities that resemble activities we already do. The same can be said about people; which ties back into thinking of them as people you already know, rather than strangers. The one thing to always keep in mind is that we can sometimes become the products of our environment. A happy establishment makes happy people, that sort of thing. What people don’t go around saying is that our environments are a product of our perspective. The paradox here is that in order to have a perspective, there must be something to build a judgment on. For most of us, we build our opinions based on opinions we agree with. It is only natural. Opinion is a mixture of emotion, fact, and character; it is then broken down into an easily digestible form. I say all of this as a precaution for a few reasons. The first reason is obvious; perspective can blind us of paths untaken, leading us to feel negatively about feelings our own minds create. Mostly though, the only thing that divides us is our desire to be divided. E

HE SAYS SHE SAYS TAKING A QUARTER OFF SCHOOL

ADRIAN SAUCEDO ollege students often times debate about whether or not to take their summer break. The opportunity to continue studying during summer seems like a great idea because that way, if students study year-round they will graduate faster and they will enter the workforce sooner. While it seems that taking summer courses is the best alternative, the reality of today’s situation is that for many students this is not a tangible possibility. The economic situation for the majority of Americans is poor. Even the amount of financial aid that students receive has decreased given there are insufficient funds and the number of students and parents in need has increased. To top things off, unemployment is very high so the prospect for graduating students to find a job right out of college is bleak. Even if recent graduates find a job it might not necessarily be the job they dreamed of or the one they prepared for in college. There are many college students working in fast food restaurants as a full-time job because they can’t find anything else and since they have graduated they need to start paying for their student loans. Taking a summer quarter also implies higher tuition cost per year because students are taking additional courses apart from the fall and winter terms. They might not be able to afford the summer courses and might need to take out a loan to cover the cost of the classes, books and other related expenses. This translates to a higher debt for students who take summer classes because they will owe more per year studying during the summer and they will have to start paying it sooner since they will graduate faster. During summer, students have time to work full-time and save up for fall

courses to take out less money in loans or to save up for future expenses. It’s the perfect opportunity to take an internship and not have to worry while working whether or not the student has a test or a project they should be working on. The student has the time to concentrate and really learn when they have less things on their mind. Of all the reason aforementioned, the well-being of the student is the most important reason why taking a summer break is the best idea. Stress is common in students and it is very harmful to the body as it could bring many health problems that could be emotional as well as physical. A little bit of stress is normal, but having a break is also necessary. To enter the workforce the student has to be prepared not only with schooling but also mentally and emotionally. Putting pressure by delivering too much information and having little time to process it is not going to give the student the maturity he or she needs to achieve his or her goal. College has to be a time of learning and growth, not another stress factor in your life. The majority of today’s students don’t have the luxury of just being full-time student, they also have to work and sometimes even provide for their families. Taking summer courses, in many ways might cost more in the long run. E

STACY ZAMSKAYA ttending a university with an accelerated schedule is definitely not easy for everyone. At first, it seems exciting to start new classes every ten weeks, covering a semester’s worth of material in less than three months. Yet, when it comes to taking classes during the summer, the previous motivation is not as easy to find. Although taking a quarter off may open up room for a lucrative internship or job opportunity, there are several downfalls to taking time away from classes. One issue that often arises with taking time off is the student’s ability to reenter the college lifestyle. Taking a ten week break from homework, projects, and group work means that picking up schoolwork may be difficult, especially on an accelerated level. Falling behind is much more common for those who had just taken a quarter off rather than students who have been taking classes non-stop. Another important fact to remember is that an accelerated schedule is usually only possible when students attend classes with no breaks. If a student decides to take a quarter off, his or her graduation date may be delayed. This may mean that students will have to take electives in place of major classes until the class required for graduation is offered again. If a student is aiming at completing a degree in about two and a half years, taking a quarter off is not the best idea. What many students also forget is how employers will react to the time off. If a student takes a quarter off to start a business or intern at a Fortune 500 company, they will consider it to be a great résumé builder. At the same time, if a student takes a quarter off and spends it on the couch watching Netflix, explain-

ing this break may become difficult during an interview. In order to avoid such confrontation, a quarter off should be taken as an opportunity to apply the skills learned so far in a student’s college experience. Many students who decide to take time off from school actually decide to not return to their studies. Coming back to school is a difficult transition for students, so if they want to avoid this stressful situation, they should avoid taking the time off. Time off provides several opportunities which are not available for students, such as a full-time job. If this occurs, students need to figure out whether a degree or a full-time entry level job is of higher importance. Taking a quarter off from school may be a rewarding experience for some, but students always need to consider how this time off will benefit or hurt them in the long-term. Transitioning back into the college lifestyle after enjoying the freedom from schoolwork may create problems, such as low grades and procrastination. At the same time, students need to make sure their graduation plan will not be highly affected by this break. Before leaving school for a quarter, these ideas should be carefully considered in terms of the student’s goals and aspirations. E

Williamson's Eagles Flying in all the Right Directions

Eagles Dominate in Soldier Field Opener DAN CIAGLIA ootball has always been the most popular collegiate sport, but Robert Morris University, founded in 1913, existed as a school for 98 years before starting a football program. So when Jared Williamson was hired in 2010 to be the Head Coach of the Robert Morris Eagles, he was handed quite a daunting task – building an entire program from scratch. When a program first starts, it’s unbelievably challenging for whoever is in charge to put together a winning program out of the gate. However, Williamson has certainly defied the odds through his hiring of assistant coaches and recruitment players from all over the country to establish the Eagles as a winning program in an astonishingly short amount of time. When you see

the Eagles take the field in 2013 for the 3rd season in program history, it’s amazing to see how far Williamson and his team have come. So, what exactly has Williamson accomplished in his tenure as head coach? When the Eagles began play in 2011, they finished with a record of 4-4 and were classified as an NAIA Independent, which means they didn’t belong to any specific conference. This season, they’ll begin the season members of the Mid States Football Association that features NAIA powerhouses such as Saint Francis University, 2011 NAIA Champion Saint Xavier University, and 2012 NAIA Champion Marian University to name a few. Along with a new conference to play in this season also comes a brand new field; Morris Field in Arlington

Heights has had massive renovations to it, including a new field turf, press boxes, lights, and a video scoreboard. Last season, the Eagles cracked the top 25 rankings for the first time in program history, climbing as high as #22. This season they ranked just outside the top 25 at #27, but opened with a dominating 34-20 win at Soldier Field against Ave Maria University, which also happens to be the team RMU beat in 2011 to earn their first win in program history. The Soldier Field game represents a high point in this program’s brief history, as Williamson and his team have worked relentlessly to be able to compete on the biggest stage in an NFL stadium. On the field, the Eagles have a high-powered offensive attack, led by 3rd year starters QB Matt Westerkamp,

RB Lamont Wims, and WR Deshaun Weaver. Against Ave Maria, the 3 stars led the Eagles to victory, with Westerkamp totaling 379 yards and 4 touchdowns to Wims, Weaver, and Tight End Sean Zingsheim. Wims also added a running touchdown in the 3rd quarter, finishing with 3 touchdowns and 263 total yards on the day. The defensive unit was led by linebackers Dontaye Johnson and Angelo Parker, who finished with a combined 23 tackles. Both are expected to anchor the front seven the rest of the season.

Serving and Spiking Abroad:

Myranda Cate of the RMU Women’s Volleyball Team Recruited to Play in Italy HEATHER ALEXANDER he American International Sports Teams (AIST) Incorporated has selected Myranda Cate, whom will be graduating concluding the winter qua r ter, to play Volleyball in Italy in the spring and summer of 2014 for

14 | The Eagle

eleven days. She was chosen following the 2012 season, along with 11 other women from the United States, to play volleyball due to her outstanding performance on the court. “It has been a dream of mine to play overseas and at first I didn’t think it was possible. Then I got asked to play by them [AIST] and I was excited but I knew it was going to be very expensive.” Cate also went into detail regarding the expenses for her trip. She mentioned that she must pay her own airfare, hotel

stays, one meal a day, and other amenities. AIST will be providing all players with USA playing gear, two meals a day, and other perks that have not yet been defined. Even though this is a great opportunity and will look amazing on a resume, Cate mentioned one particular aspect of her acceptance that she wishes was negotiable: compensation. Players will not be compensated for games or participation. It is strict-

ly an opportunity to gain experience. “I’m going just to play and fulfill a dream, and it’s Italy, so I can’t pass that up. But there’s always a chance I could get picked up by a team overseas and if that were to happen, I would stay there for months.” Cate leaves for Italy on May 23, 2014 and shared that she is mostly looking forward to seeing the cities where her team will be playing and visiting, playing against other teams from Italy, and meeting her new teammates.
