Students rate restaurants on cleanliness, friendliness College Student Insights looks to improve local businesses, raises scholarship money through research results By Tasneem Almuhanna Reporter
If you’ve ever received bad service at a local restaurant, then College Student Insights will work on having your voice heard. College Student Insights is the first student-run market research firm on campus sending out surveys about local restaurants to get student feedback.
Ali Rieger, the company’s project director, said it will provide data collected from the surveys taken by college students and sell this data to restaurants, Residence Life, and University Athletics. The firm is looking to help out local businesses by finding out what the typical consumer responses are from local students. “We are trying to find out what it is they are lacking… is it the cleanliness of the business, or is it the customer
service… in order to improve their business,” Rieger said. In order to start their research the firm used an online database, Qualtrics, which is helping it create and distribute the surveys. The program will also help Rieger and others analyze their data. “This week our survey will be distributed to 9,000 undergraduates via email… we are currently focusing on fast foods and have two surveys
going out… one for quick service and one for full service such as Easy Street Cafe,” Rieger said. The way the surveys are conducted is that students will either get the quick service or full service survey and then pick out which restaurants they have patronized in the past three months, the company’s president Rachel Dyas said. They will then be asked to rate restaurants in terms of cleanliness, service, employee
friendliness and more aspects. Once the firm has examined its results, it will send out a report to local businesses showing the business’s ranking in comparison to other businesses, in hopes of selling the results to them. The money gained from the results sold to businesses will be used to start a schol-

S E Y E R E U A OFFENH CAMERAS USED TO INCREASE SECURITY, STUDENT COMFORT By Molly McNamara Reporter
ameras don’t lie, so when it comes to activity in residence halls, some security cameras are catching vandalism, robberies and unwanted visitors with the press of a button. Residence life has had cameras in different buildings for several years as part of an added security measure for students. Under the previous director, Residence Life initiated a
plan to get cameras in every residence hall, and Offenhauer was first on the list in that initial phase, said Sarah Waters, current director of Residence Life. “We are working through a process to get a baseline of cameras in every building, and we should have those by the time we open in the fall,” Waters said. Offenhauer is also one of the only
buildings that has cameras on every floor and in every corridor, but Waters said Residence Life really wants to focus on the entrances and exits of buildings so they can get an idea of who is coming and going rather than worrying about every corner of the building. While not all residence halls feature these “extra eyes,” Offenhauer,

Students tap in to early arrival of spring beers Local businesses offer students variety of seasonal brews, different tastes Tyler Strittmatter Reporter
Spring in Januar y and Summer in March. Unseasonably warm weather is not only impacting clothing choices for students, it is dictating what they are drinking. Beer companies have been coming out with Spring and Summer beer selections a season early throughout the past few years. Mike Grant, manager of the BG Liquor Outlet on East Wooster, said that spring beers come out earlier and earlier every year. “We had Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy in the beginning of March,” Grant said. “It is like an arms race for beer companies.” Grant explained why there is such a craze around sea-
sonal beers. “It is the one time a year you can get these beers,” Grant said. “People want something different than what they have been drinking, and breweries create a sense that there are availability problems.” Beer drinkers can expect a lighter style and ingredient changes such as the addition of lemon or lime in their spring and summer drinks, Grant said. Griffin Jones, co-owner of Reverends, explained a bit more of what makes a spring and summer beer different. “T he s e d r i n k s a re more hop f or w a r d , m or e c itr u s f lavored a nd c a n have more f r u it y a spect s,” Jones sa id. “A s opposed to chocolate or c a r a mel note s you wou ld f i nd i n w i nter beers.

ref resh i ng for pou nder s a s opposed to sippers.” During this time of year, students will find more wheat ales and pilsners, Jones said. Jones makes sure “anything with a lighter body,” is on tap. Issa Baiz, manager at Falcon Food Mart, is amazed by how early seasonal beers have come out this year. “I wa s so su r pr ised some of t hese beers ca me i n when t hey d id,” Ba i z sa id. “Beer c ompa n ie s proba bl y w a nted to ta ke adva ntage of t he good weat her.” Baiz said that there are a lot of summer beers lining his shelves right now, and he does not remember summer beers being out so early last year. “Sam Adams spring beer came out in winter, and by the time it was actually spring it was off the shelves,” Baiz said.
Nate Ballinger, an alumnus of the University and Bowling Green resident, said he loves spring and summer beers. “It’s great to drink light, crisp, refreshing beers in warm weather,” Ballinger said. “A lot of people go nuts for fall beers; I go nuts for spring.” Ballinger commented on spring and summer beers seemingly coming out earlier every year. “Breweries a re sma rt,” Ballinger said. “They know people get excited when they see new seasonal beers. The only downside is that people might get tired of a seasonal beer by the time it actually gets to the season.” So break out the folding chairs, fill the coolers with ice and grab your favorite summer drink, because they are here, whether you are ready or not.

Anything ranging from a fire alarm pull to who threw the punch in a fight can be reason for police to pull footage, Waters said. Both Waters and Capt. Tim James of the University Police agree that cameras have helped in many instances in finding an answer to a problem within the residence halls. “I’m a cop, so the more security the better as far as I’m concerned, so if I can get a camera every place that’d be great; it would help me do my job,” said James. “There’s a lot that goes into that decisionmaking process though; you have to think about the costs as well as any privacy issues.” James said they usually

They can use the cameras to see who was entering or exiting at that door at the time of the alert. Seven years ago when a few men from Defiance College came to the University and

James remembers the incident and said without the cameras, some criminals may have never been caught and there could have potentially been a lot more thefts to deal with. The camera footage has been used in court as evidence against someone claiming they were not responsible for the crime being tried, as in the incident with the men from Defiance College, James said. “That’s worth a lot to a jury,” said James. “Sometimes they deny any involvement and then you just hit play and let it run; after seeing their face on the screen, it usually ends with them saying sorry.” Though the cameras have proved beneficial in catching questionable activity, they

CAMPUS From Page 1 arship fund at the University, Rieger said. “We have legitimate data that these businesses need, so why would we give them the results for free, when we can raise money and support a scholarship so that kids can realize that this is something they can be a part of,” Rieger said. There are two aspects to College Student Insights: customer satisfaction and living labs, Dyas said. In Fall 2012 the firm will use three floors of a residence hall dedicated to a “living lab” where students who live on those floors will participate in trying out new products and foods and then providing feedback for more data. “If Pizza Hut is coming up with a new advertisement or logo and they can get student opinions on which they would look at first,” Dyas said. The College of Business is trying to make such oncampus research a replacement for the cap-stone course — something necessary for graduation, Rieger said. The reason for this is because it allows for real-life experience and using techniques from marketing classes. “It took a while for us to conduct this because we had

In addition, the company is looking for funding from sponsors in order to have a grand prize of an iPad, a secondplace prize of $100 gift card and a third-place prize of a $50 gift card, Dyas said. Everyone who takes the survey will get entered into a drawing for the prizes. The prizes will be distributed after the results have been gathered, taking approximately two to three weeks, Dyas said. Graduate student Chris Lorenzen, who’s the manager of business development and sales, said any businesses in the city has to rely on the student body as its customer-base, and the research that College Student Insights will offer them will be at a discounted price compared to other companies, but the quality will still be the same. “It’s important for students to know that this is their opportunity to get their voice heard… we may be handing out iPads and other great goodies… but this is a great place to have their opinion implemented,” Lorenzen said.

‘Chicago’ to be performed at Wolfe Center By Tara Keller Pulse Reporter
ince its debut in 1975, the play “Chicago” has been performed on Broadway, at universities and in high schools around the world. Next week, the University’s theatre and film department will perform the iconic play — with a twist. Most productions traditionally make the last half of the play Roxie and Velma’s vaudeville show, but director Michael Ellison decided to extend that theme further. “I wanted to make the whole show their musical vaudeville and having that concept is what makes this show unique,” Ellison said. “Anyone who directs this show faces the challenge of combining multiple elements into a cohesive whole.” This version of the play will feature all vaudeville style music and dance as it tells the story of Roxie and Velma, two young women in the 1920s who commit murder and hope to in turn become famous. Kara Bergman will portray the character Roxie, whom she said has

Student produced song to be released Movies offer opportunity University students write song, film video titled ‘BGSyou’ about college life By Simone Jackson Pulse Reporter
“BGSyou,” a song written and produced by University students, is set to be released as a music video in the coming weeks. The band Ziggy and the Zoombas, performed “BGSyou” for the first time at Dance Marathon on Saturday. Performing at Dance Marathon was suggested by Victoria Recker, a junior music education major, who plays the trumpet for the band. “BGSyou” can be described as part of the Ska genre. Ska is rock music that incorporates brass instruments. The song is about five minutes in length. Initially, the band’s only goal was to produce a music video, which they have been rehearsing and shooting for since September. The group decided to perform “BGSyou” at Dance Marathon to get the word out to students about Ziggy and the Zoombas. “It was a way for us to stay motivated during the final stages of recording the song and shooting the video,” said band manager and songwriter David Chesworth, a senior majoring in exercise science. The music video begins with a senior’s last day of high school. He makes his way to the University, where he spends four years and the time flies by. The video uses humor to promote college life at
the University. The basic theme of the music video is that college is some of the best years of your life, Chesworth said. Chesworth had the idea to create a music video two years ago after joking around with a few friends. “Being in a music video was something on my bucket list,” Chesworth said. “I figured that I am in college and I have the resources and friends to do it, so why not?” A year went by before Chesworth or his friends did anything about the idea. Chesworth composed a rough draft of “BGSyou” at 2011’s Dance Marathon that he showed to friend, Benji Cates, a music education major. “I began developing instrumental components of the song at 3 a.m. the next morning,“ Cates said. Cates used his musical background to perfect “BGSyou.” “I was inspired by what he had written and just added to it,” Cates said. Cates is the lead singer for Ziggy and the Zoombas. Chesworth and Cates began recruiting their friends to help with various aspects of the production of “BGSyou.” They were so excited about their idea they practically begged friends to help them, said sophomore Aaron Rice. “I was excited to do it,” he said.
Rice became the lead guitarist for the group and was put in charge of audio recording. Daishin Takakura, an international student from Japan and film major, is shooting the entire video. “BGSyou” is the first music video that Takakura has shot. There is a lot to consider when making a music video, Takakura said. “I am used to making a story the center of a film, and in a music video the music has to be at the center but surrounded by visual elements,” he said. Chesworth said the process has been fun and challenging. “It is a great way to build our resumes while doing something we enjoy,” Chesworth said. Ziggy and the Zoombas plan to have their video on the University’s Twitter and Facebook page, but they are still waiting on approval from the University’s marketing department. “BGSyou” will be different than the “Stroh Center Rap,” Chesworth said. “What is unique about our video is that it is student made,” Chesworth said. He said the group had no advertising motives when it decided to create the video. The group doesn’t plan to perform again unless asked. “We are all going our separate ways; the video was just something fun that we wanted to do,” Chesworth said.

There are just a few movies in our generation that stick with us. The quotes we can drop and have instantly picked up by complete strangers. If a person theatrically whispers “I’ll never let go,” everybody knows it comes from “Titanic.” Like it, love it or wish the actual movie would hit an iceberg and sink, “Titanic” is a must-see movie and is permanently embedded into our culture. Released for the first time in 1997, “Titanic” became a best-selling blockbuster and held that title for years to come. Now in 2012, we are at the precipice of the 100 year anniversary of the actual sinking of the ship. Director James Cameron decided to commemorate this milestone. “Titanic 3-D” is now in theaters. And yes, I went to the midnight premiere on Tuesday night and stayed throughout the entire 194 minutes. Did I dress up for this occasion? Of course I did. I found an old T-shirt and decorated the back with a dialogue between the two main characters, Jack and Rose. My friend Emily took her “Titanic” obsession one step further. She donned a white nightgown, dyed her hair white and wore her own blue “Heart of The Ocean”
necklace. We were the only two in the entire theater who dressed up. We were stared at, gawked at and a few girls who I suspect were just seeing the movie for the first time asked who Emily was supposed to be. Finally, after too many trailers, the lights dimmed and we were aboard the “Titanic.” The 3-D literally made me feel like I was a passenger on the ill-fated ship. This movie, I am shocked to say, was really my first 3-D movie. I had seen a “Spy Kids” 3-D movie about 10 years ago, but that technology is hardly comparable to what theatergoers expect today. I was asked if I enjoyed the movie after returning to my room at 4 a.m. and regrettably missing my first class to sleep. “Titanic” was good. Its message about how our lost loved ones never really leave us is a message no one is too old or too young to learn. The minute detail and historically factual evidence the movie showcased was impeccable. The 3-D did make me nauseous at times, and I could have enjoyed the movie just as much without it, but fortunately it didn’t take anything away from the storyline. The best part about “Titanic” wasn’t seeing the ship sink in all of its three-dimensional glory or seeing certain parts of Kate Winslet’s anat-

Film major’s work qualifies for South by Southwest Music and Film Festival By Troy Chamberlain Reporter
University film production major Ben Measor first met Bob Putka in a media production class at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center his junior year in high school. They struck a friendship and made their first film together shortly after graduation. They called it “Hooka Face and the Virgin Boy.” “It’s about an 18-year-old who just turned 18 and graduated high school and wants to take his last step from innocence,” Measor said. “So he orders a hooker for the night and gets a hotel room and then it’s about the sort of awkwardness that ensues.” Currently Measor is a senior at the University and he and Putka, a student at Cuyahoga Community College, are still collaborating. In
April 2011, the two put together their second film: “Mouthful.” If the title of the first film raises your eyebrows to the second film’s subject — trust your instincts. “It’s about honesty in a relationship and how sometimes it isn’t necessarily the best course of action,” Measor said. “The movie opens up with the boyfriend asking the girlfriend what she thinks about his size and asks her to compare it to her ex. From there on … it kind of leads them down a path to relationship hell.” The film focuses on a male character named Bobby who, with his pants down, displays his assets package to his female partner, Bliss, and requests a comparison to her former boyfriend’s. Bliss’s answer isn’t quite the response Bobby wants. “It was based on a personal
experience I had that while in the moment seemed very important and high stakes,” Putka said. “Removed from the moment it seemed a little ridiculous.” While at first glance the subject may not seem like artistic material, officials at this year’s South by Southwest Music and Film Festival (SXSW, for short) in Austin, Texas disagreed. The film was one of thousands submitted for application to the festival, Measor said, and of those thousands approximately thirty are selected for competition. “Mouthful” was among those thirty and was screened at the festival from March 11-17. It was Putka who received the

PEOPLE ON THE STREET “Armageddon.”
KATIE DUFFY Freshman, Tourism
Is government the problem, or the solution? I guess it might depend on whose government we’re talking about. For the past thirtysome years, it’s become a mainstream position that government is bad and that we have to be saved from it. The people telling us this are almost always a particular set of politicians who want a position in the government, or the people who are helping them get that position. Which is weird. I mean, if you went to a doctor and he told you he didn’t believe in medicine, would you want him to be the guy who cuts you open and tries to fix your insides? Probably not. But, more and more, for over a generation, we’ve been ha nd i ng our government over to people who pretend to believe that government is innately bad. Or, let’s give them the benefit of the doubt; let’s say they do genu i nely bel ieve that government is evil. W hat does it say about these people that they benef it f rom gover nment, live off it — and profess that it’s evil? Not surprisingly, when the government is in the hands of people who profess to hate government, it doesn’t work very well. Under Clinton-Gore, the Federal budget was balanced, the number of federal employees shrank dramatically and the government even began to generate a surplus. I don’t say these men were saints. I just say they knew how to do their job. In contrast, under each of the Bushes and Reagan, deficits boomed and government grew. Ever y body k now s Reagan’s wisecrack, “The nine most terrif ying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” Republicans with this philosophy devastated agencies like FEMA when they held office. The result of this mismanagement and indif-

ference, as we know, was the tragically inept response to disasters like Hurricane Katrina. And this philosophy continues in the GOP: just last month Governor John Kasich refused FEMA help for Ohio for two days, and only relented in the face of mounting criticism. And last year, Mitt Romney (increasingly likely to be the presidential standard-bearer for the Republicans this year), said that disaster relief was “immoral.” These are people who cannot be trusted to use the power of government for the public good. Government is like any other human invention. It can work well or badly, depending on what we do with it. Our government, the government of the United States, is designed to be responsive to our needs and our calls for action. That’s why the Con st it ut ion speci f ica l ly g ives Cong ress t he power “to collect ta xes... and provide for t he genera l welfare of the United States.” Nobody likes ta xes. I expect even IRS employees compla in about them. But people like what governments do. They like roads and schools. They like being able to call 911 when they need to and get an answer. Despite a long lifetime of Republican smears, they like Social Security and Medicare. If these programs are so ineffective, so incompetently run, then why are they so popular — so politically invulnerable? No one l i ke s e ver yt h i ng a ny gover n ment doe s. T h at ’s w hy we have elect ions : to sm ite t he gover n ment w it h a clue-ha m mer, w hen necessa r y. But if a politician can’t use the power of government to do some good for the community, maybe he ought to go into some other line of work. And if a politician says that government is your enemy, maybe he’s telling the truth — if he succeeds in getting the government power he’s asking you to give him.

Homosexual acts are moral, lead to better society MATHEW DAVOLI COLUMNIST
While it is encouraging that it no longer seems acceptable to openly bash gay men and lesbians, it is discouraging that some still advocate for viewing homosexual acts as immoral. This condemnation of same-sex lovemaking and passion can be heard often on campus, and it sometimes appears in this paper. As one person arguing against the acceptance of same-sex relations wrote: “The acts of homosexuality are like telling a lie… For example, someone could have a problem with lying.” I would agree that “someone could have a problem with lying,” and I would even advocate that people should have a problem with lying as it is immoral, but homosexual acts are different. Lying can be seen as immoral as it harms individuals and society, but homosexual acts are not intrinsically harmful and are actually moral actions. Before I go into the reasons why homosexual acts are moral, it may be fitting to properly point

out how lying is immoral (the operational definition of “immoral” will be an act that decreases the wellbeing of the individual and society). First of all, lying can be, and is, intrinsically harmful to society. As professor Harry Frankfurt of Princeton University pointed out: “How could a society that cared too little for the truth make sufficiently wellinformed judgments and decisions concerning the most suitable disposition of its public business? How could it possibly flourish, or even survive…?” Secondly, we should also consider how the wellbeing of the individual liar is harmed. These are lessons one learns in kindergarten, but let’s refresh our memories nonetheless. The liar is harmed through the act of lying because: they are in ever present danger of being found out and thus harmed, they are under the ever present stress of keeping the lies straight and thus harmed, they can accumulate mistrust from their community in such a way that it becomes harmful, etc. I hope that the above is a decent review of why lying should be viewed as
immoral; now let’s focus on whether or not homosexual acts are also intrinsically harmful to human wellbeing. As I have been seeing AIDS ribbons circulating around campus, it may be best to just start there. The transmission of AIDS is a legitimate public safety concern, and because of its effect on the wellbeing of society one should then ask: does the transition of AIDS through the homosexual act make it immoral? The best response to this would be what Professor John Corvino of Wayne State University said on the matter: “If the higher AIDS risks makes it wrong for men to have sex with men, then it would be wrong for women to have sex with men because, after all, lesbian sex puts them at less of an AIDS risk than heterosexual sex.” And of course, we should all remember that simple safe sex techniques decrease the probability of contracting any disease through any sex act, to the extent that the gender of one’s sexual partner(s) is not a significant determining factor in the contraction of disease. In this way, homosexual acts are not intrinsically harmful to society and to
individuals, so they should not be seen as immoral. But as I alluded to above, I not only see homosexual acts as not immoral, but as perfectly moral acts as well. Homosexual acts can be, and often are, extremely beneficial to maintaining and even increasing the wellbeing of individuals and societies. Not only do homosexual acts create pleasurable experiences (which could be seen as good enough by itself), but they also help in creating and maintaining the very bonds of affection between intimate partners that really make life worth living. And since the social sciences seem to back up the concept that happier people are better contributors to society, one could then reason that homosexual acts can lead to better societies. As I hope that I outlined above, the declaration that “homosexual acts are immoral” can be seen as a falsehood, a lie. And as one person wrote that people should “have a problem with lying,” I would in turn like to write that we should “have a problem with” homosexual acts being called immoral.

been her dream role since she was younger. “I was so happy when I found out I got the role,” Bergman said. “It was a really, really close call.” Bergman’s character will compete for stardom with the character Velma, played by senior Eli Brickey. “Velma’s a very strong, inyour-face woman,” Brickey said. “She’s been around the block a couple times.” Although the two women in the play are in constant competition and don’t start off as friends, Bergman and Brickey said they get along well offstage. “Eli is so talented and I’ve learned a lot from her,” Bergman said. “We’re really good friends.” Bergman said when Brickey found out they had both earned the roles they wanted, she took a picture of the casting sheet to share with her new co-star. This kind of cooperative attitude is normal and expected, Ellison said. “My favorite thing about this cast is how supportive they are of each other,” Ellison said. “It’s been really wonderful to work with them.”

actual phone call from the festival announcing their acceptance. “[Bob] gave me the call the day of and then your mindset’s racing thinking, ‘OK, now what’s the next step,” Measor said. “There was definitely the jumping up and down and cheering in my mind, but then we pretty much just got right down to business.” To fund travel and promotional costs for the festival, Measor and the rest of his production team, C-Town Film Factory, needed an additional $2,000 dollars on top of the $10,000 spent producing the film. They turned to the fun-
Because “Chicago” features songs that are dance heavy, dance majors joined forces to help with the production of the musical. Dance captains would come in the afternoon to learn the choreography from Ellison and the other choreographers, then return and teach what they learned to the other cast members. “I love helping actors discover what works for them and helping them apply principles of acting to singing and dancing,” Ellison said. “I taught them how to dance and sing like their characters.” Dancing isn’t new to Brickey, but the amount of time she put into learning the steps was fun and exhausting, she said. “I loved getting to dance the songs instead of singing them in the shower, but dancing in heels was hard,” Brickey said. “I had to really take care of myself and become a strong and better dancer for this show.” This production of “Chicago” not only features an entire vaudeville theme, but other unique elements as well. Choreographer Deborah Tell reconstructed the original dance number, “Hot Honey Rag,” and other elements have been tweaked to suit the director and the designer’s vision, Ellison said. “Chicago” also marks the
first musical ever to be performed at the newly constructed Wolfe Center for the Arts in the Donnell Theatre. “At the Donnell, the seating is very intimate,” Brickey said. “As a performer, we have a lot of space to move around and we can address the audience.” Bergman also said she was excited to perform in the venue and said audience members can expect to have a great time when they come see it. “The audience can see it’s a f lashy and entertaining show,” Bergman said. “There’s not one second of boredom.” Ellison said he hopes for the musical to act as a cautionary tale about being careful what you wish for. “‘Chicago’ is literally pulled from the headlines of the 1920s, and the themes about the hunger for celebrity are very current,” Ellison said. “We think it speaks to a modern audience.” Keeping the vaudeville theme and the warnings about the dangers of celebrity, Ellison said there is a surprise for the audience during the musical that he hasn’t seen done anywhere else. “Chicago” opens at 8 p.m. on April 12 and will run all weekend with four performances.

Though the film did not win the competition at SXSW, Measor said it was well received and the trip allowed him to make connections within the industry. Despite the lack of financial returns on the film, Measor would not hesitate to do it again. “At this point in any filmmaker’s career you’ve kind of got to be spending more money at the beginning to sort of launch your career,” he said. The film was also accepted into five other festivals: Vale Film Festival in Colorado, Boston Underground Film Festival (from which it took grand prize), LA Comedic Shorts Film Festival, Florida
Film Festival and Athens International Film Festival in Athens, Ohio. Also involved in the project was fellow film production major and senior Phil Hirzel. Hirzel provided music on the film. “For me it was really cool because South by Southwest started out as a music festival,” he said. “So it was cool to know that there are people there who were hearing my music.” For Measor, the privilege of the exposure has made it all worth it. “To be 21 years old and be in [festivals] of this caliber is pretty intense,” he said. “But we’re keeping a good head on our shoulders and taking it one step at a time. That’s all you really can do at this point.”

BG rugby takes on Toledo
Falcons take on club team in exhibition game By Max Householder Reporter
LAUREN POFF | THE BG NEWS

Wishart, Ali, Harrington, Locigno head to Alabama for gymnastics NCAA Regionals By Daniel Sierra Reporter
The BG gymnastics team qualified four gymnasts to the NCAA Regional Championships on Saturday — the most in program history. Danielle Wishart, Jamilah Ali, Megan Harrington and Gina Locigno head to Auburn, Ala., this weekend to compete for a spot at the NCAA Regional Championships. Harrington and Locigno qualified on all four events, while Wishart and Ali will compete on vault and balance beam, respectively. The Falcons finished the season at No. 48 in the national rankings, shy of becoming one of 36 schools to qualify full teams to Regionals. “Obviously, we want our whole
team to go,” said coach Kerrie Beach. “I feel like any time you have a large number of gymnasts going, your team has to be getting closer, so I’m really pleased.” It is the first trip to NCAA Regionals for Harrington, Ali and Locigno. Freshmen Ali and Locigno both have enjoyed successful debut seasons, competing all-around in several meets for the Falcons. At the Mid-American Conference Championships, Ali became only the third gymnast in BG history to earn MAC Freshman of the Year honors. “I’m also quite pleased we have a sophomore and two freshmen going,” Beach said. “I think having them bring the experience home and telling the other athletes how
exciting NCAA Championships are, it will help motivate us to get the whole team there.” Junior Danielle Wishart qualifies to Regionals for the second time in her career, after previously qualifying on vault as a freshman. Wishart plans to unveil a brand new vault at the competition—a one-and-a-half twisting Yurchenko. Few gymnasts in the country have competed that vault this season. “We’re really excited about that upgrade and seeing her go for it,” Beach said. “She’s been a force for us on vault all season and I’m not surprised that she put herself in that position to qualify.” Ali is slated to compete on balance beam, an event in which she held the No. 1 ranking in the conference for much of the season. Ali
scored 9.8 or higher eight times this year, hitting a difficult set that includes a standing back layout and a punch front tuck. The top two all-around scorers from non-qualifying teams advance to the NCAA Championships. For event specialists, a gymnast must win the event outright to qualify. The last BG gymnast to qualify to NCAA Championships was Marny Oestreng in 1999. Oestreng brought home BG’s first and only NCAA title that year, winning the floor exercise with a score of 9.925. “I think both Danielle and Jamilah certainly have opportunities to be considered to go to NCAA Championships,” Beach said. “For both of them, it will take their very best performance.”
The Falcon Rugby Club, fresh off its big victory against Michigan this past Saturday will return to action this weekend against the Toledo Celtics. The Falcons have played the Celtics in each of the last three years, and the games haven’t disappointed. The Celtics are an informal men’s team composed of men in their mid to late 20’s who still have a desire to play rugby. Some of players are in fact former BG alums, and you can expect the game to be competitive. Although the game itself will not count, it will be an important measuring stick for the Falcons as they look forward to a possible trip to the national championships at the end of this month. “The Celtics are a very good team with guys who are bigger than us and have a greater knowledge of the game; thus we have to be on our toes when playing them,” said lock Ed Luther. It is well known that the Falcons have struggled early on this spring season, and this game may be the confidence boost they need to get back on track. If BG does indeed make it to the national tournament, they will be dealing with teams much like the Celtics who are bigger and smarter than they are. It is for that reason that the Falcons cannot afford to take this game lightly. It seems coach Tony Mazzarella has figured out the correct lineup to put on the field, and it really showed against Michigan this past Saturday. “Moving Nick Mussara to scrum half was the best decision that Coach could have made,” Luther said. “Nick has really come on the last few weeks, and with him out there it

Falcons defeat Defiance, prepare for conference matchup against Akron By Clay Leser Reporter
The Falcons used a six-run fifth inning to earn a 10-2 win against Division-III Defiance College at a sunny Steller Field on Wednesday. The game was tied at one run apiece when right fielder Patrick Lancaster doubled to score Andrew Kubuski. Third baseman Tyler Wynn then hit a sacrifice fly and Defiance third baseman Brad Kremer made an error that allowed the Falcons to plate two more. Shortstop Brian Bien polished off the inning with a two-run single, and BG never looked back. The Falcons were able to load the bases three times in the fifth. Jason Link got the win for BG, improving his record to 3-0. Trevor Blaylock got the start, but only stayed in the game for two innings. “We had to make sure his pitch count didn’t get too high,” said coach Danny Schmitz. “We’ll be using him out of the bullpen this weekend.”
“They [bench players] work just as hard as the regulars so that was important.” Danny Schmitz | BG Coach The Falcons (11-17) used this opportunity against a DivisionIII school to give playing time to players who don’t play on a regular basis.

Falcon softball scores zero runs in pair of losses to Valparaiso á˘™ By Ethan Easterwood Reporter
The BG softball team had a tough opening day as it fell in both games of it doubleheader to Valparaiso on Wednesday. The Crusaders managed to shutout the Falcons in both games by scores of 4-0 and 5-0. Both pitchers Jamie Kertes and Paris Imholz were each credited with a loss. This is only the second and third time this season the Falcons have remained scoreless on the box score. In both games the pitchers were the highlights as
they both prevented any runs early. In game one it took the Crusaders till the fourth inning before they managed to score. Valparaiso managed to bring in two runs thanks to a sacrifice bunt and some aggressive base running giving them the early 2-0 lead. The Crusaders would add two more runs during the game including a solo home run thanks to Jessie Marinec in the seventh inning, giving them the 4-0 victory. The Falcons refocused and came out in game two pitching well early, holding the visitors off until the top of the 5th inning. With two runners
on base, Valparaiso managed to hit a deep ball to right field that managed to be dropped allowing two runs and a triple. Imholz would save the inning by leaving the runner on third stranded. The Falcons began to bat aggressively however with the Crusaders excellent pitching, nothing seemed to go their way. Jamie Kertes came in the seventh inning to maintain the manageable 2-0 deficit. With a runner on third and a loose ball fumbling around in play, the runner attempted to run home only to get caught in a rundown. Returning to third just as the
ball was thrown, the throw was a bit too hard and seemingly went through the thirdbasemanâ€™s glove, allowing two more runs to score. The Crusaders would add another run before the inning ended with a line drive through center field, leading to a fielding error allowing the runner to score. The Falcons couldnâ€™t manage to redeem the 5-0 deficit, and the game ended with that score. BG will only have a day to shake off the losses, as it will travel to Kent State on Friday to continue Mid-American Conference play.

IFE, an outreach ministry of The Word of Truth Christian Center in Bowling Green, is here to serve in any and every way possible. LIFE ministry is supported and backed up with prayer by the committed people and board of directors of Word of Truth Christian Center. Fifteen years ago, Pastor Jerry Hunt started Word of Truth Christian Center in Bowling Green. After 7 years and some help from a couple of BGSU students, he began a campus ministry and called it LIFE Ministry, which stands for “living in faith every day.” At first, LIFE would meet on campus in residence halls. As the organization grew, the members met in a lecture hall in the Business Administration Building. Now LIFE meets across from Harshman, on E. Wooster St. in the LIFE house which is less than 2 years old and large enough for members to grow spiritually. Monday through Friday, besides Thursday, the LIFE house is open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. for anyone to stop by and enjoy the presence of other Christians. The house provides students with a safe place to get-away, said member Brandon Steel Sr. “If you have desire to grow and be well rounded, you’ll get that at LIFE. It’s a peaceful, safe, and stress-free place to share with people who have the same spirituality and desires as you do,” he said. Those who come to the LIFE house never find themselves without something to do or people to talk to. There is a pool table, various games, a 65 inch TV, computers, WIFI, work areas for studying, food and drinks. “There are people from different backgrounds and spirituality’s here. We are very diverse and everyone is welcome. LIFE doesn’t manipulate or lure you in, people just come if you have that hunger,” Steel said. Those at LIFE believe that character + conduct = influence. The goal of LIFE is for students to know what the word of God is, so they know why they believe and what they believe, said Pastor Jerry Hunt. “Build God a house of devotion and He will build you a house of ministry,” he said. Mario Baker was a founder of the LIFE ministry. He has seen the student group grow from there being just a few members in 2005 to currently, where there are many members who meet at their own LIFE house. “LIFE is the truth of the word of God expounded upon correctly,” he said. LIFE holds a bible study every Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. The Word of Truth Christian Center also has Sunday services at 9:30 a.m. 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Stop by the LIFE hose Monday through Friday, but not on Thursday, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. and be welcomed by Pastor Jerry and many others. Also, visit their website at www. collegelifehouse.org for more information. “Out of who I am comes what I do,” said Pastor Jerry.

BG track heads to East Lansing for meet Falcons take part in 30-team Spartan Invitational By Alex Krempasky Reporter
The BG track and field team is on the road this weekend to compete in the Spartan Invitational on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. BG will rematch many teams they have competed against in both outdoor and indoor seasons. Teams include Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan and numerous smaller schools. This is the Falcons’ third meet in the 2012 outdoor season. The first meet
at Cincinnati has been BGSU’s most successful out of the two, winning second place overall. The second meet did not go as well, with a seventh place overall finish at the Toledo Collegiate Challenge. After this weekend’s meet, the Falcons only have four more left until the Mid-American Conference championship. They will compete in the Ball State Dual next weekend in Muncie, Indiana, with meets following in Oxford, Ohio; Hillsdale, Michigan; and Ashland, Ohio.

Top-ranked Miami stands in the way for the Falcons to climb up the conference ladder this weekend and establish themselves as a premiere team in the MidAmerican Conference. The RedHawks (9-9, 4-0 MAC) took down Akron (17-2, 3-1 MAC) on March 23 with a team score of 4-3. The Miami match marks the most pivotal match in the Falcons’ season in staying with the leaders. The Falcons fell to Akron last week, but would rebound highly with a win
to Miami, extending their MAC record to 3-1 and tying them with Akron. The Zips have a weekend match against Buffalo who is the middle of the road team having a 2-2 record in the conference. An Akron loss and a Falcons win would place BG in second place, or at worst, place them just a game behind the Zips. The RedHawks are currently riding a three-game winning streak and are 3-0 at home. Miami has also faced seven nationally ranked teams, ranging from No. 15 to No. 68 rankings. The RedHawks have notably

The Cardinals are housed currently at the bottom of the barrel in the MAC.

All seven BG players have kept winning records this season prior to this weekend’s matches, with six of them having won at least 60 percent of their matches. Co-captain Maddie Eccleston is tied for 18th on the University’s career wins list with 121 total victories.
