Dance Marathon hosts musical competition at Cla-Zel By Geoff Burns Reporter Dance Marathon hosted a “Battle of the Bands” Thursday night at Cla-Zel as part of the student organization’s year-long effort to raise money for Children’s Mercy Hospital in Toledo. A total of four bands performed: Set the Stage, Forgetting Frank, Sins Like Scarlet and Hour 24, as well as hip-hop artist Mikey “Rosco” Blair and trio .Thraxx. Emily Foster, entertainment chair for Dance Marathon, raised more than $200 in pre-sale tickets alone. The money raised will be used to supply children with toys and to help families who can’t afford health care, Foster said. The organization decided to have the concert at the Cla-Zel instead of at Howard’s Club H, where it was hosted last year, because more

Time has caught up with some of the oldest buildings on campus, forcing the University to spend millions of dollars modernizing some of them. University, Hanna and Moseley Halls are among the oldest buildings on campus and need upgrades, said Steven Krakoff, associate vice president for Capital Planning and Campus Operations. “The interior condition of the buildings is poor,” Krakoff said. Rodney “Structurally they’re okay, but Rogers they’ll be gutted and renovated Provost and over the next five years.” Senior Vice Campus officials are trying to President of balance the need for updates and Academic maintaining the heritage of the Affairs University, Krakoff said. The University has set a $200 million budget for the multi-year building strategy outlined in the master plan Krakoff created. Currently, McDonald Residence Hall is undergoing an $11 million renovation. The upgrades include relocating the entrance onto North College Street from the inner courtyard, and a complete roof replacement. “We figure [McDonald Hall] has 20 good years left in it,” Krakoff said. “It’s in an excellent location, and it’ll have more sizzle when it’s done.” The next planned renovation will take place on the second floor of Olscamp Hall, and will cost about $5 million. The upgrade will feature new computers, redesigned classrooms and more office space. The project will finish in time for the upcoming fall semester, Krakoff said. While upgrades are taking shape, several University employees hope the history of the campus won’t be sacrificed. “The project [looks] to maintain the architectural charm of our buildings while creating modern classrooms inside,” said Rodney Rogers, senior vice president and provost for the University. “We will honor our past while providing for our present and future needs.” Upcoming renovations of academic buildings may disrupt future classes, something the University is looking to avoid, Krakoff said. For example, renovations of South Hall and Moseley Hall are scheduled to begin in August,

Board of Trustees meets at Firelands campus
Students may have to travel a little further than the Union if they want to attend the University Board of Trustees meeting today. The meeting will be hosted in the Cedar Point Center at the Firelands Campus in Huron, Ohio. On the docket for the board to discuss are increases in residence hall room rates and meal plan rates. The board will also consider a resolution to renovate the first floor of Founders Hall. The renovations are estimated to cost $800,000 and will be done so the Honors Program can be relocated to Founders from Harshman.
“[T]he improved space will provide the Honors Program an opportunity to improve BGSU’s ability to recruit and attract high-performing, academically qualified students,” according to the resolution. The renovations will involve the creation of a classroom, eight offices, two conference rooms and more, according to the resolution. This summer, Olscamp Hall may be renovated as well. There is a resolution up for approval at the meeting which will detail the renovations. The potential renovations are estimated to cost $4,800,000 and will be a prototype of flexible teaching and learning spaces on the second floor, according to the resolution. The University Board of Trustees meets at Firelands fairly regularly, said Dave Kielmeyer, University spokesperson. “I think it’s just a chance for the trustees to stay acquainted with the Firelands campus,” Kielmeyer said.

International students adjust to University life By Bridjet Mendyuk Multimedia Editor
International students may find adjustment to the University easier with the help of other students in similar situations. When junior Pian Mo, a Chinese exchange student from Hong Kong, came to the University in January, an orientation and campus tour was mandatory for foreign students. The University also introduced Mo to other Chinese students to help with the adjustment. “In the orientation, they helped us meet other people,” Mo said. “Some were from Australia and Europe.”
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS BY THE NUMBERS
Of 621 international students, 340 are graduate students, 247 are undergraduate students and 34 are guest students. Here are the top five countries international students are visiting from.

he was happy to attend a show for a great cause. “There weren’t a lot of concerts in town, so it’s nice see some play,” Meehan said. “I’ve always liked music and thought it would be fun tonight.” Foster said Dance Marathon was able to get two more acts this year compared to last year’s show and brought in a larger crowd. “We wanted a legitimate sound board and we love the venue,” Foster said. “It’s big enough for people not to be crowded. It’s a good venue for ‘Battle of the Bands.’”
students from that program. We submit our name as a University but we don’t select individual students.” When it comes to adapting to life on campus, Mo said it’s not easy to adjust, but it’s also not very difficult. She said she enjoys the classes and professors at the University. “I think the classes are a bit difficult because you need to understand the professors,” Mo said. “The professors are clear, but when they speak to the students they speak very
fast and it’s hard for me to get it all down.” Students who are coming to the University from another country need international groups and organizations to help them adjust to life on campus. “There are a lot of student networks that are going to help through that adjustment period,” Gonzalez said. “The newcomers rely a lot on the existing international students to ease the adjustment period.” Forming friendships
in college is a huge part of being a student, and SalazarValentine said as an international student it could be tough. “Imagine going to a place where you don’t know anybody; you’re going to try and find people who are in the same boat you are,” SalazarValentine said. “Your first friends are usually those from a different country. I am a former BGSU international student, so this is how I have found friendships that have lasted to this day.”

Women beat Akron, move to No. 1 in MAC East Ethan Easterwood Sports Editor
With the top spot in the MAC East up for grabs, the Falcons took their opportunity Wednesday night and defeated Akron 74-61. “Tonight it wasn’t about going out and showing Akron we could win,” BG forward Alexis Rogers said. “It was about playing our game because last game we got out of playing BG basketball.” The Zips came into the game leading the MAC East by one game, and were ranked in the top
25 nationally in five offensive categories. However, the stats stayed on paper as the Zips were unable to overcome a determined Falcons’ team that is used to being number one, as BG has won the MAC the past eight seasons. “It’s something as an upperclassman [that] we are used to,” Havel said. “I mean we work hard and we are used to being on top, so having to fight back really shows our character.” Havel opened the first half with

a three-pointer and would add two more behind the arc later in the game, finishing with 13 total points and five rebounds. “I know my coach and my teammates have a lot of confidence in me,” Havel said. “I need to have more confidence in myself, but I
think I am shooting a lot more and it’s happening to go in so I’m going to keep shooting it until that stops.” The first half was a power struggle, the game going back and forth between the two teams. In total, the game was tied at six different marks and the lead changed four times. Despite a strong first-half showing from Akron’s Sina King, who recorded nine points and eight rebounds before the half, BG led 37-31 and kept the lead, as high as 18 points late in the second half, for
the rest of the game. BG’s Alexis Rogers went into half with just two points, but finished the game with 12 and recorded a double-double thanks to 12 rebounds. “I adjusted my mask a little bit and eventually I still had the same moves in the second half and they started falling for me,” said Rogers. “I tried not to get too down on myself so I kept shooting the ball, and they started falling.”

BLOWOUT Falcons too much to handle for New Orleans, set season high 39 point lead
By Alex Krempasky Assistant Sports Editor
The University of New Orleans Privateers were sent sailing back to the Big Easy Thursday after the BG men’s basketball team won 87-56. Seniors A’uston Calhoun and Jordon Crawford led the Falcons with 16 points each, and 11 BG players scored at least three points against the Privateers. “I think we came out, played strong defense,” senior Cameron Black said. “One of the things we’ve been working on in the second half is trying to come out in those first three or four minutes and get stops, and I think today [coach Louis Orr] said we got four stops in a row.” The Falcons started the game off with a 7-2 run, but the Privateers would answer with its own four-point run to cut the lead to one. Sophomore Chauncey Orr respond-
ed with a three-point play, pulling the Falcons away for the remainder of the game. While the Falcons missed its next three shots over the next minute and a half, Orr would put the Falcons back on track with a lay-up to put BG up 14-8. Eight of the 10 BG players appearing in the first half scored at least two points. The Falcons finished with a 12-to-4 run, which consisted of 10 points from Crawford. The Falcons’ 17-point lead at halftime marked the best of the season. BG kept up momentum after the break as well, starting the second half with an eight-point run. However, the run ended at 17:11 with the help of a pair of free throws from New Orleans senior Rarlensee Nelson. After a New Orleans two-point jumper from Cook at 16:46, the Falcons went on another eight-point run, which boosted their lead to 31
points. Over the next 10 minutes, the Falcons consistently held a lead of at least 30 points. BG led by 39 points with three minutes to play, which marked the largest lead of the game and the team’s biggest lead of the season against any team. During the second half, every eligible player saw playing time and 11 of the 12 players made a basket. Freshman Spencer Parker recorded a career-high 7 points against the Privateers. “When they played Butler, they played Mississippi State, they played some good teams all over the country,” coach Louis Orr said. “So, I thought our defense and our approach on the offensive end was a big, big plus.” The Falcons’ next game will be Saturday at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne and will mark the last non-conference game of the season.

Baseball prepares for Murray State Hockey hosts final home series By Tyler Buchanan In Focus Editor
The Falcons baseball team will continue its non-conference play against the Murray State Thoroughbreds this weekend, with 3 p.m. games on Friday and Saturday, and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday. Following a series win against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers to open the 2013 season, here’s four things to look for as the Falcons head to Kentucky:
Jeremy Shay, C
Jake Thomas, OF
Logan Walker, INF
1. Hot start
3. Catch and throw
Through three games, the team’s 2-1 start against the Hilltoppers this past weekend marks the strongest start for Falcon baseball since 2007. In the past four seasons, the Falcons had dropped the first three games each year. Of 10 MAC schools, only BG has notched two victories through a week into the season. During non-conference play thus far, the MAC is a combined 7-25. The Falcons will hope to continue their strong start in their next series.
The Falcons had a slow defensive start to their season against the Hilltoppers, making seven errors in three games. With just a .934 fielding percentage, the Falcons will hope to improve their defense this weekend. Last season, the team went 7-1 when they didn’t make an error. In games they made at least one error, they went just 13-32.
2. Apthorpe staying strong Redshirt junior Cody Apthorpe, team co-captain, is the projected game one starter on Friday afternoon. In his opening day start, Apthorpe went four innings against the Hilltoppers, surrendering just two earned runs off four hits. He also struck out five batters and walked one. Apthorpe, who received a medical redshirt last year after injuring his arm, will look to build off his first start against the Thoroughbreds.
! e Fre
4. Veteran presence Despite winning two of three against Western Kentucky, the Falcons offense struggled at times, batting just .155 as a team in the series. A trio of veterans, Jeremy Shay, Jake Thomas, and Logan Walker, all juniors, batted a collective 2-28 in the opening weekend. Shay record four of the group’s five walks that series, but their .212 on-base percentage from primarily the middle of the lineup may spur the veterans to get on base more often off of Thoroughbreds pitching.
Falcons welcome Northern Michigan for shot at home ice By Ryan Satkowiak “They’re a hard Senior Reporter working team and it’s This weekend, for the final time in going to be a battle the regular season, the BG hockey team will compete on home ice. this weekend.” The Falcons take on Northern Michigan on Friday and Saturday. Both games are slated for 7:05 p.m. start times. Saturday is the team’s senior night, and it will be played against a team whose season the Falcons have ended two years in a row. In both 2010-11 and 2011-12, the Falcons defeated the Wildcats in the first round of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs. Entering the weekend, Northern Michigan is five points behind BG for eighth place in the CCHA standings. Eighth is the lowest seed that gets to host a first-round playoff series. “It’s a big weekend for us, we need to get some points out of this weekend,” said Ryan Peltoma, one of two senior defensemen on the team. “Northern is right behind us in the standings, so it’s a big weekend for our team.”

New a cappella group tries to make name for themselves By Abby Welsh Pulse Editor
Michael Moyseenko was a freshman when he decided to take a risk and branch off into the music world. Now a sophomore, he is one of the founders of the a cappella group, Not Yet Perfect, which has an upcoming performance in the Arts Village at a talent show this coming Monday night, Feb. 25. The group formed a year ago and has a goal of becoming well known on campus for their talents as an a capella group, Moyseenko said. A cappella refers to music without any instrumental sounds, Moyseenko said. As the group’s vocal percussionist, Moyseenko provides rhythmic beat accompaniment in lieu of actual drums. With a strong musical background from high school, Moyseenko said he decided to join the allmen a cappella group, Ten40, when he first came to the University. “After I joined Ten40, I wanted to start a singing group up on my own,” he said. Not Yet Perfect is comprised of musical parts ranging from lowest to highest, including bass, baritone, tenor, alto and soprano singers, Moyseenko said. The group performs songs that were originally instrumental, later arranged into a cappella pieces. Moyseenko brought to the group existing songs and also arranges music himself. But Moyseekno didn’t do this alone, seeking help forming the group with Noah Jones, a friend he met freshman year involved in the Arts Village. After meeting Jones, now the assistant director of Not Yet Perfect, the two tried to get members to join by advertising through posters and campus updates. Alumna Shayle Welch, a soprano, first found out about the group through campus updates. “I saw the notice, contacted Michael, and went to try-outs,” Welch said. Although Welch recently graduated from the University this past December, her interest in singing as a hobby led her to continue with the group. “Since I already have a full-time job and I live in the area, I decided to re-audition and stick with it,” Welch said. Auditions for Not Yet Perfect are held each semester, though returning members do not have try out to keep their original parts and have “first dibs,” Moyseenko said. “If they want to give up their part, that is when they would re-audition,” he said. The group must maintain a certain number of members to remain a singing group on campus, Welch said. Not Yet Perfect currently has 11 members who practice in the College of Musical Arts building every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 p.m., and Sundays at 6:30 p.m. The practices range from an hour to an hour and a half.

Players are tasked with using 16 letter tiles to make as many word combinations as they can in two minutes. Ruzzle was created by the company MAG Interactive and was released March 2012. More than 25 million people have downloaded the app and nearly 3 billion rounds of Ruzzle have been played, according to their website, www.maginteractive.se. Charles Coletta, a professor of popular culture, believes that apps like Ruzzle are popular because they connect people and are easily accessed. “Gaming is being geared more towards everyone, it’s not just kids anymore,” Coletta said. Sophomore Annie Nelson started playing Ruzzle after she heard about it from a friend and she said the main reason she plays the game is just to occupy time. Freshman Cameron Walter also learned about the app from a friend. “I like it because it’s a quick way to test your mind before class,” Walter said. MAG Interactive’s website said the game is number one overall in the U.S. app store, and is the

Freshman Claire Feyche decided to download the game and see what it was about after noticing it was the number one app on iTunes. “I like the game because it challenges me to find words, I feel smart when I find different words,” Feyche said. Feyche said she thinks the game has become popular because it’s like a more advanced version of Scrabble. “Scrabble, you have to add tiles to create words, Ruzzle just gives you a set amount of tiles and you have to find the words within them,” Feyche said. Other word game apps go through phases of popularity, lasting several months or so before interest fades. “It’s popular for a month, then people just stop playing it,” Feyche said. Students on campus will most likely play new games as downloading trends change. “Things become popular but then are replaced so quickly ... there is someone making something new right now,” Coletta said.

MUSIC AT the Forefront series sponsored by the University’s MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music and BGSUElectroacoustics hosts multimedia music group, Big Robot, at Cla-Zel.
Electronic band to perform at Cla-Zel By Geoff Burns Pulse Reporter
Laptops, percussion instruments and real-time video will create the electronic music used by Big Robot, which will be performing at Cla-Zel this upcoming Monday, Feb. 25. The concert is open to the public and begins at 8 p.m. The event is part of the Music at the Forefront Series sponsored by the University’s MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music and Electroacoustics. This will be the first time the group has performed in Bowling Green. Big Robot creates music through multimedia technology, mixing audio and video design with live percussion. They use electronic
processes such as motion tracking technology to generate sounds from human movements. They will be hosting a percussion clinic on Feb. 26 in the Moore’s Musical Arts Center at 10:30 a.m. in room 2102 and is giving a lecture in the same room about the group’s career at 1:30 p.m. The group was formed in Indianapolis in 2009 by professional musicians Scott Deal, Michael Drews and Jordan Munson. Deal is a professor of music at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and works with Drews and Munson at the college. All three members

respectively. King also joined Rogers with a doubledouble of her own with 10 rebounds. While the Zips came in 11th in the country in scoring offense, BG outshot Akron 46 to 33 percent. The Falcons are 17-1 when scoring over 60 points, the lone loss coming against the Zips earlier this season. When scoring under 60 points, however, BG has yet to win a game this season. Akron came into the game ranking national in scoring offense (11th), rebound margin (15th), assists per game (6th), personal fouls per game (14th) and assistto-turnover ratio (13th). BG is not ranked in the top 25 in any of these statistics. “We are all competi-
tors and we look at the stats whether Coach [Roos] brings it up or not,” BG forward Danielle Havel said. “We all talk about it, and we knew what this meant to get this win.” The Zips also brought the nation’s leader in assists per game in Kacie Cassell, who averages 7.8 a game. She had five against the Falcons on Wednesday night. With the win, the Falcons and Akron share the top spot in the MAC East with identical 17-8 (8-4) records, each defeating the other on its respective home court. “Our kids look at the standings board in the locker room every day and they see that we were one game behind Akron and one game ahead of Miami,” coach
Jennifer Roos said. “Our goals in all my years being here have always been the same, you want to be playing your best at the end of February and beginning of March.” BG will travel to Miami next, who sits just behind both Akron and the Falcons in a matchup that will prove just as important. The Falcons are looking for a first-round home court in the MAC tournament. It’s better to be the team chasing and not being chased, Roos said. “That bullseye on your back weighs a little bit more than what most people realize,” Roos said. “But don’t get me wrong, it’s a good pressure to have. It’s a positive motivator.”
right direction here.” Despite the postseason success BG has demonstrated against Northern Michigan, the Falcons have not had that good fortune in the regular season. BG is just 1-5-2 the Wildcats since 200910 in regular season games. “I think there’s some-
thing to be said about they last years playoff series’, but I don’t think [Northern Michigan] is going to harp on that,” Bergeron said. “But those kids want to make amends for that, and we have to be ready.” Despite mediocre CCHA results, Northern Michigan
has taken down some college hockey heavyweights away from home this season. The Wildcats have swept No. 7 St. Cloud State on the road, swept No. 18 Wisconsin at a neutral site, and split a series with No. 14 NebraskaOmaha on the road. “There a team that when

they’re on the road, I don’t think they care that they’re on the road,” Bergeron said. The weekend series could determine which team will get home-ice in the first round of the CCHA playoffs. If BG sweeps the series, they will clinch home-ice. If Northern Michigan gar-

ners at least a split, homeice will be determined in the final weekend of the regular season. “They’re a hard working team and it’s going to be a battle this weekend,” Shea said. “We want home-ice advantage. These points are crucial for us to get.”
