Union room booking opens, controversy ends By Eric Lagatta Assistant Campus Editor


OUTLINING future plans for the women’s empowerment group, Purple Hard Hats, is the group’s President Jessica Miles, a sophomore majoring in construction management. The group for those majoring in architectural design, construction management and engineering, met in the Tech Building earlier this week.


After months of delay, student organizations will finally be able to begin scheduling Union room reservations for next fall starting today. While organizations would usually have begun reserving meeting rooms in the Union for fall 2013 this past November, that was delayed in order to form a new room reservation policy. But after student opposition, that policy has been scrapped. Students can reserve rooms with this year’s policies still in effect. “Nothing’s changed ... we’re at where Alex we should be,” said USG President Alex Solis Undergraduate Solis. “We can’t delay [room reservation] a minute longer.” Student Contrary to proposed changes to the Government room reservation policy from Union President Director Patrick Nelson, there will be no limit to the amount of times and number of hours organizations can use rooms and no roomusage fees. Nelson first presented his proposal at an ex-officio meeting Feb. 1 and then again at a USG meeting Feb. 4, which prompted a resolution from USG against the

New all-women organization hopes to empower women in College of Technology

Lack of funding could silence Alicia’s Voice Nonprofit hopes to raise money with event

By Tyler Buchanan In Focus Editor

Look like a girl, but think like a man. Act like a lady, but work like a boss. Such is the motto for the Purple Hard Hats, a group of students in the College of Technology looking to empower women and improve female representation in several construction-related majors on campus. The group is open to women majoring in construction management, architectural design and engineering. Jessica Miles, the group’s president, founded the Purple Hard Hats earlier this semester, after seeing a disparity in gender among some of her classes. “I hated going to classes and being the only girl,” Miles said. “I asked, ‘Where are the females in our industry?’” The idea of the organization stemmed from Miles, who dreamed of a group where women students in these fields could support one another. “I honestly think that this organization is kind of a need, because if we don’t build up ourselves, who’s going to uplift us when we’re out there in the real industry?” Miles said. Some members expressed that being a woman in male-dominated fields meant greater expectations from them in classes and field work. “People expect more from you since you’re a girl,” said sophomore

Saturday night students may be able to attend a “big tacky wedding reception,” but it probably isn’t for the reason they might be thinking, and it isn’t following a wedding. The event will be hosted by Alicia’s Voice, a nonprofit organization in Bowling Green that works to prevent and raise awareness about domestic violence and which may have to close its doors due to lack of financial support. “[It’s] just to raise enough money to try and continue to do what we’ve been doing,” said Kathy Newlove, founder and president of Alicia’s Voice. The event will take place from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Veteran’s Building at the Bowling Green City Park and donations are required for admittance, Newlove said. The event will feature a band and an open bar, so no guests under 21 are allowed to attend, she said. The event was almost cancelled due to lack of support, but after it was publicized that the organization may have

Prospective students to visit on Presidents Day HEART BEATS By Patrick Pfanner Reporter

The University is preparing for a wave of potential students to visit this Presidents Day. Since a number of high schools are off on Presidents Day, that’s when the University decides to host its biggest preview day of the year, said Gary Swegan, Director of Admissions. Preview days are designed to showcase the campus to potential students, they also serve as ways for colleges to advertise themselves. “We really want students to explore all the campus has to offer,” Swegan said. Every college, such as the College of Business Administration and the College of Musical Arts, will have an open house on President’s Day.

last Presidents Day, and the Office of Admissions expects similar numbers this year, he said. An inflated population won’t be enough to cancel classes, as the University wants visitors to view the campus in a realistic setting, Swegan said. To handle the large numbers of visitors, the University will have 65 tour guides herding the masses. A good tour can be the deciding factor when a student is choosing which university to attend, said Cristina Sanchez, Administrative Coordinator for campus tour guides. “When [students] come on tours they fall in love,” Sanchez said. “That’s when campus guides come in, they can make a big impact.”

Mariana Figueroa, group secretary. For sophomore Emily Nungester, an architectural student and the group’s treasurer, her experience was nearly the opposite. “They thought you didn’t know how to do anything,” she said. A gender-gap awaits women majoring in these professions. Just 18 percent of engineering undergraduates are women, according to the American Society for Engineering Education, This ratio is only slightly higher for the architectural industry, whose percentage of licensed female architects in the United States was 20 percent, according to a report from the American Institute of Architects. For the construction industry, the numbers are even more drastically

slanted, with an estimated 2.6 percent of women making up the United States’ construction workforce in 2010, according to the National Women’s Law Center. Undeterred, Miles, whose father works as Detroit’s senior project manager, studies toward a career in urban development. “I’m going to have a purple hard hat, and when people ask me why, I’ll say ‘I like purple,’” Miles said. While she hopes of a career in construction management, she has found herself in the minority among other women on campus. “I don’t think there’s a lot of girls in the field because when they hear

different events,” said Wendy Stram, director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau, who helped organize the event. One of the new events this year is a Sandwich Stroll hosted by the BG Arts Council, where participants pay $10 to sample sandwiches from five of seven participating restaurants, said Barbara Ruland, director of Downtown Bowling Green. “It’s a way to introduce people to the different dining options the city has to offer,” Ruland said. Aside from the stroll, downtown will also feature carriage rides, ice

construction management, I have to explain to them ‘It’s not me picking up a hammer and going to build a house,’” Miles said. Instead, those in construction management like Miles seek to lead and preside over work sites. Miles’ familial experience in the trade has given her plenty of ideas for the Purple Hard Hats. Professionalism is one of three primary focuses of the group, as Miles hopes members will gain experience and preparedness to succeed after graduation. For Miles, the group is just as much about acclimating women to the realities of their industry as it is a support system. Among her ideas are golf lessons for all members, as “a lot of construction deals take place on the golf course,” Miles said. The group also hopes to promote sisterhood and service, looking to volunteer in community events,

carving, a Red Cross benefit at Cla-Zel featuring live bands and the University Juggling Club and open houses at several businesses along Main Street. The celebration isn’t only restricted to downtown, as City Park will also be hosting events. Students can join an 18 and up cornhole tournament Sunday, play dodgeball or take part in a one mile run, said Kristin Otley, recreation coordinator of Parks and Recreation. The run is for serious and casual runners and a “good way to get in your New Year’s resolution,” Otley said. Winterfest started in the city in

2008 as a way to celebrate winter sports and the native Scott Hamilton’s achievements as an Olympic ice skating champion, who made an appearance that year, Stram said. “It started for him and we continued that tradition,” she said. While Hamilton may not always return for Winterfest, Stram said the festival has something for everyone. “[Winterfest] is a way to give back to the community and have fun in the middle of February, which is not the most fun month of the year,” Ruland said. “It’s a great opportunity to see what we’re like during the day.”

eventually giving out scholarships for incoming freshmen in these majors and host fundraising efforts. The first thing on Miles’ shopping cart: purple hard hats for all members, just $15 apiece. Despite the group’s initial problems — no faculty adviser and not enough members to host meetings in the Union — those involved feel confident the Purple Hard Hats will catch on among students. “It’s going to happen,” Miles said. “We’re going to take off ... It’s kind of like history in the making.” Vice President Teajuana Scott, a sophomore, said that the challenges she

faces majoring in architectural design have only inspired her to work harder. “I know when I tell people I’m in this, they say ‘I’ve never heard of a girl in that field,’” she said. “You really feel like you have to prove yourself.” To the members of Purple Hard Hats, gender empowerment is only part of the equation. As students looking to make a career out of their passion, a strong mind is as much a power tool as those in their workplaces. In classrooms throughout campus, those in the University’s first women’s group of its kind in the College of Technology seek to empower themselves — not just as women, but as architects, engineers and construction managers. This, Scott said, is their biggest working material in class: pride. “Man, we want to be one of the good ones in here.”

“Tour guides are important because they can relate to potential students,” Sanchez said. “They’re a piece of the whole Presidents Day puzzle.” Students may also see hundreds of people walking around with orange bags on Monday. The bags are provided by the University Bookstore and are filled with supplies and brochures from the different colleges. For example, a typical bag contains materials students will need for the day such as a pen, lanyard and folder. It’s up to the student to obtain brochures

from the college they’re interested in, according to the Office of Admissions. The contents of the bags are paid for by the University and the specific college providing the information, Swegan said. “The orange bags are a convenience for the students,” he said. The University hopes this preview day makes an impact on the potential students, Swegan said. “The [Presidents Day] preview is a great event that gives the University a chance to tell their story,” he said.

UNION From Page 1 changes at an emergency meeting Monday. USG President Alex Solis and Vice President David Neely, along with Graduate Student Senate President David Sleasman, presented the resolution to Brad Leigh, executive director of business operations, Tuesday. One of USG’s and GSS’s biggest concerns was the absence of student voice in forming the new policy. Solis, Neely and Sleasman recommended to open the books for reservation on the 15th, return to this year’s policies and include student opinion in future changes. The three were also against the proposed two-hour cap on any meeting in the Union. This influenced Leigh to stick with the current reservation policy for next year until students can give their input. “The decision to delay the changes was made to allow sufficient time to solicit student input,” Leigh said in an email. “While I believe the students would agree the intent of the change is very good, having them involved in development and communication of the changes will prove beneficial.” The proposed policy’s purpose, Nelson said at the Feb. 1 USG meeting, was to limit “no-shows,” allow more groups to have meetings in the Union and increase efficiency by not having rooms open but not in use. Solis said Leigh was willing to work with students to find a solution that satisfies both sides. “We agree with the overarching ideas of why to do this,” Solis said. “It’s how to get there we disagree with.” USG’s resolution outlined a possible alternative. “[USG] would be open to discussion on alternatives to better accommodate the needs of students and to better address the misuse by student organizations of scheduled space through a probationary system,” according to the resolution. The plan is to now form a group of student leaders of various organizations to evaluate the policy for fall 2014, Solis said. “It might not be changed. They might just tweak some things.” Solis said. “What I don’t want is that a year from now we’re making the same changes.” Maureen Carr, the president of the University Activities Organization, agreed that since students are the ones affected, all changes should come with their input. “I’m really happy they decided to stay with the current policy,” she said. “It was really quick and unexpected for the student leaders.” Sleasman met with President Mary Ellen Mazey this past week and Solis and Neely met with her Wednesday to update her on the issue.

Long-distance relationships can be a challenge for students

No matter the distance, couples stay strong and loyal

By Katie Logsdon Pulse Reporter

By Alex Alusheff City Editor

When some high school students decide what college they are going to, they might consider going to the same college as their high school sweetheart, while others may go a different route. Sophomore Kyle Terlop and his high school sweetheart of two years chose to go to different universities that were almost two hours apart. “There was no doubt in my mind when I was in high school that our relationship would last through college,” Terlop said. Half way through freshman year, Terlop and his girlfriend broke up because of the distance and college experience. “I thought it would work out because we were in love and thought the distance wouldn’t be a big deal,” Terlop said. “College changed us as people. We didn’t have as much in common as we used to.” Carissa Wott, psychology instructor at the University, explained why people change during the years students are in college.

While most couples cuddled up with their loved ones during Valentine’s Day, senior Andrea Flaig cuddled up with her phone. Flaig has been in a long distance relationship for two years with her fiancé, James, who attends Wright State University, more than two hours south of Bowling Green. Even though the couple tries to see each other at least once a month, and during the summer in their home of Lebanon, Ohio, Flaig said long distance can be a challenge. “In a relationship, you have that feeling of closeness with someone, but with long distance, you don’t have it all the time,” Flaig said. “You have texting and Skype, but it doesn’t replace being with them.” Since long distance relationships carry the burden of not being with a significant other, couples must strengthen other skills such as trust and communication, said Monica Longmore, sociology professor at the

Leggings become more popular New styles let students mix, match outfits By Bridjet Mendyuk Multimedia Editor

The leggings trend has become all the rage in women’s fashion and shows no signs of slowing down with new designs becoming popular. Senior Cassie Perez, an apparel merchandising and product development major, said the leggings trend are going to become more prevalent in women’s fashion because of their price, patterns and versatility. “You can wear them when you work out and you can also wear them to go out,” Perez said. “Even in black and basic colors, they go with everything.” Since they became popular in the ‘80s, Perez said leggings have evolved from being an exercise necessity to popular clubbing apparel. The recent boom in the leggings phenomenon has women of all ages adding alternatives to their everyday wardrobe. Sophomore Amanda Screptock said she wears leggings a couple times a week because they’re comfortable and easy. “They’re more comfortable than jeans,” Screptock said. “Almost all of my friends wear them.” As for the crazy colors and patterns, Perez said floral leggings are going to be popular in the spring from what she has seen at stores such as Forever 21. “Some people wear them with longer tops to go out and some people wear them with sweatpants to class,” Perez said. “When you’re sitting in class all day, jeans can be restricting.” Sophomore Kate Hoerig said she has leggings with lace, metal studs and tribal patterns. “They’re comfortable and they match everything,” Hoerig said. ”I get different ones at Pac Sun

Maxx.” Recently, there has been a popular shift to twill material, which is a type of woven cloth that is thicker than traditional legging material. This helps leggings and jeans to become more versatile and comfortable, Perez said. “Also there’s more twill denim leggings but they still have the stretch which a lot of people like wearing to class,” Perez said. “I think that jeggings are becoming more popular because there’s so many more options.” Sophomore Emily Bella said she likes yoga pants more than she likes leggings and tries to stick with basic colored leggings such as black and blue. Screptock agreed and said she doesn’t own any wild or outrageous leggings. “I think you need to be a certain type of person to pull those off,” Screptock said. “I just haven’t really thought about wearing them.” While some students think the different patterns are too much, one thing is for sure, leggings aren’t going to be going out of style anytime soon. “Normal leggings will always be prevalent because they’re comfortable,” Perez said. “They’re also pretty cheap.”


MISHA TOT and Keith Kanz film YouTube series The Walk of Shame about a broken-hearted college student trying to forget about his pain.

Local filmmakers debut movie at Cla-Zel By Amber Petkosek Pulse Reporter

Making videos has always meant more than making money to seniors Misha Tot, Keith Kanz and Daniel Estrada. The Walk of Shame is a YouTube video series Tot directed within the last couple of months. It will be shown at Cla-Zel during a fundraiser to raise money for United Service Organization, and will be shown Thursday, Feb. 21, following Battle of Bands. “I don’t want to make money, we do it for fun,” Tot said. Tot decided to donate the money to USO after they had previously fundraised with their fraternity. “I tried to talk to Red Cross, but I feel like USO is more personal to me,” Tot said. The film originally was separated into three videos Tot uploaded to YouTube, and then he decided to transform the vid-

eos into one. In The Walk of Shame series, the main character, Nathan Shame, is dumped by his longtime girlfriend and showed a night of crazy antics following the break-up after meeting Malice Bishop, played by Tot. Kanz, the cameraman for the videos, said there is “a lot of sex, drugs, and coming of age,” in the film. “It’s a self-realization, but at the same time it’s really dirty,” he said. Estrada, an actor in the film, said it is a perfect example of a dirty movie. This movie portrays anything bad and inappropriate you could imagine, Estrada said. The group decided to show the video to get their names out there to become better known. “We want more people to see it, so we decided to see if it could be screened,” Estrada said. Cla-Zel is allowing the film creators show their movie for free because it is a fundraiser,

Tot said. Banan Alkilani, general manager of Cla-Zel said Tot came to him to ask to show the video because the club is used as a venue for students to premiere their work. “We have an ideal set-up,” Alkilani said. “We have the theater seating, and then space to have after parties in the same venue.” Tot said he had to block The Walk Of Shame videos from his YouTube account so people would be interested in coming to Cla-Zel. “There is a trailer right now,” he said. “I blocked them so people would come and see it.” The film is being advertised in many different ways. “We are advertising via YouTube, posters and trying to film new short videos,” Kanz said. Estrada is excited for how

Softball, baseball to start off seasons away from home Ethan Easterwood Sports Editor

“This year, it’s a really simple word, they’re hungry. They want it bad.”

Shannon Salsburg | Softball Head Coach MAC East Preseason Poll Softball 1. BG 2. Ohio 3. Kent State 4. Miami (OH) 5. Akron 6. Buffalo

Take a step outside and take a big whiff. That’s the smell of February, or just winter in Bowling Green, Ohio. But to some baseball or softball fans, it’s just good enough. Impatience has gotten the better of those who participate in America’s pasttime and the Falcon softball and baseball teams will take the field to start their seasons in warmer climates. The baseball team will travel to another Bowling Green, this one in Kentucky to play the Hilltoppers in a three game series. Western Kentucky, like the Falcons, will look to improve upon dismal seasons the year before. The Hilltoppers finished 2012 at 25-33 finishing eighth in the Sun Belt. Western Kentucky will return 17 letter winners including 10 starters for this season. The Falcons will return 21 letter winners and 10 starters to match. Finishing out 2012 with a 20-33 record, the Falcons failed to qualify for the Mid-American Conference tournament — a feat that had been accomplished four consecutive seasons prior. New to the bases are nine newcomers for the Falcons, including eight freshman been named captain for the second straight season. In the MAC Preseason Coaches Poll, the Falcons are slotted to finish third in the East Division, which would get BG back into the MAC tournament at the season’s end. The season is just starting, however, and the Hilltoppers will be the first team in the way. This marks the 11th

Hockey rematches with Ferris State By Ryan Satkowiak Senior Reporter


The BG hockey team has not had much success against Ferris State the past two seasons. The Falcons and Bulldogs have gotten to know each other well in that time; they have met nine times since the beginning of the 2011-12 season. In those games, Ferris State is 7-2. However, those two wins for BG came in the playoffs this past year. This weekend, the Falcons return to Big Rapids, Mich. for the first time since that playoff series win, to take on the Bulldogs in a two-game series. Friday’s game is scheduled for 7:05 p.m., while Saturday’s game is set for 5:05 p.m. Ferris State sits fourth in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association standings with 39 points. The Bulldogs are third in the league in scoring offense and fifth in scoring defense. “What they did last year has spilled over into this year in terms of their belief,” said Chris Bergeron, head coach. “They’re a team that finds ways to win. In our series early this year, we outshot them both nights … and to come away with nothing is a testament

Men’s basketball corral the Broncos Wednesday 70-60 Falcons high-percentage shooting drops Western Michigan By Alex Krempasky Assistant Sports Editor

The BG men’s basketball team defeated the Western Michigan Broncos on Wednesday night. “I thought we got enough offense. We kept the scoreboard moving in the second half,” said Louis Orr, head coach. “We shot the ball well. I thought A’uston made some big baskets late to keep the scoreboard moving.” BG’s offense consistently made baskets against the Broncos, making 50 percent of its shots and a great performance by senior A’uston Calhoun, who shot 10-17 and scored 24 points. “We know throughout the course of the season that we have been struggling on the offensive end,” Calhoun said. “We have had a lot of periods dispersed throughout our games where we couldn’t get a basket. So that’s what we’ve

been focusing on the past couple weeks and for the last few games I think its shown.” Senior Jordan Crawford and sophomore Chauncey Orr each scored 13 points and 11 points respectively. BG’s defense was also at the top of its game Wednesday night against the Broncos. The Falcons recorded ten steals and seven blocks against Western Michigan. Orr and sophomore Richaun Holmes each had a team-leading three steals on the night. Junior Ca meron Black blocked three shots and Holmes blocked two shots against the Broncos. Holmes is only one block away from the school’s single-season blocks record of 59 and only two away from being the first Falcon to block 60 shots in a single-season. The win takes the Falcons’ win total to double digits,

Women face Northern Illinois By Max Householder Reporter


SIMONE ELI prepares to pass the ball against Kent State.

BASES From Page 5 matchup between the two Bowling Greens, with the advantage to Kentucky, 8-2. They last played in 2011 when Western Kentucky swept the Falcons. The series starts the long-traveled month ahead. By the month’s end, the team will have traveled 4,905 miles including visits to Murray, Ky., Cookeville, Tenn., Florida and Normal, Ill. The Falcons will be headlined by its offensive production. As a team, it hit .290 and all seven players that batted over .300 will return for this season, including Andrew Kabuki that led the team with .367. The softball team will also be flocking south for the winter. The Falcons will face four teams in three days in

HOCKEY From Page 5 to their winning mentality.” Leading the way offensively has been Garret Thompson and Kyle Bonis. The forwards colead the team with 22 points. In the two-game sweep of BG in November, Bonis and Thompson combined for three goals and four assists. Goalie C.J. Motte has stepped inadmirablyfortheAll-American Taylor Nelson. Through 28 starts, he has a 2.13 goals-against average and a .927 save percent. The Falcons could be without goalie Andrew Hammond this weekend. He is still day-to-day with a lower body injury. “Our philosophy with six games left in the regular season, where everyone makes the playoffs, is we want to make sure the long-term prognosis is good,” Bergeron said. “If that means this weekend is in jeopardy, then so be it. We’re not going to force him back in early.” Tommy Burke has familiarity with Ferris State, should he need to fill in for Hammond. He started game two of the November series, a 3-1 loss. He stopped 12 of the 14 shots he faced in the game. For the season, Burke has a 2.08 goals-against average and a .907 save percent.

The BG women’s basketball team will look to end its three-game road trip on a high note when it takes on Northern Illinois this Saturday. BG has split the first two games of that stretch as they are 7-3 on the road this season. The Falcons are coming off a performance where it shot 27 percent from the field and 17 percent in the first half alone. Jennifer Roos, head coach, said it will be good for the Falcons to have a little bit of time off before it plays Northern Illinois on Saturday. “We need a break. I think everyone in the conference is tired right now,” Roos said. “They [the team] need a couple of days off from me and I think I need a couple of days away from them after this type of shooting performance.” BG’s defense struggled against Western Michigan as they allowed the Broncos to shoot 50 percent from the field. Also, the team’s usually stout three-point defense struggled by letting Western Michigan shoot 36 percent from behind the arc. BG won the rebounding and turnover battle in the game, but its difficulties with scoring both offensively and defensively hampered their chances of making a comeback. This upcoming game with Northern Illinois will be BG’s last cross-division-

Spartanburg, S.C. Opponents include George Washington, George Mason, Winthrop and Samford. The 2012 season was good to the Falcons as they made a strong run in the MAC Tournament after being predicted to finish last in the conference. Instead the Falcons finished second. This season, the Falcons are the favorite to win the MAC in the preseason polls. “We are actually more focused on what we didn’t accomplish last year,” said Shannon Salsburg, head coach. “The thing that we need to continue to work on is being able to focus when the game is on the line.” Senior Hannah Fulk finished this past season with 15 home runs and 42 walks, both BG single-season records. The team hit a total of 46 home runs that fell one run shy of breaking the record as well. Paige Berger enters her final season


al matchup before playing five intradivisional games to close out the regular season. The Falcons are currently 3-2 when playing MAC West teams. With Northern Illinois, the Falcons will have a tough challenge in front of them. The Huskies lead the conference in three-point field goal percentage as they average 38 percent. BG however, has proved itself worthy in guarding the three-point line. The Falcons lead the conference in three-point FG defense, allowing opponents to shoot 25 percent from the field. The Huskies rank near the bottom of the conference with a record of 2-8. Northern Illinois only trails Kent State, as the Flashes are 1-9 in conference and 3-20 overall. Leading the way for the Huskies are their two guards Satavia Taylor and Amanda Corral. Both Taylor and Corral lead the team in scoring while averaging around 12 points per game. They each shoot over 39 percent from behind the arc as well. Those numbers are part of the reason that their team ranks first in the MAC in that category. BG has not played in Dekalb, Ill. since the 2011 season. The game got delayed due to a blizzard and was moved from its original Tuesday start, back to Thursday of that same week. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, this game will be Saturday with a 4:00 p.m. start time.

just two home runs shy of the career record of 32. Fulk is fourth on the list with 23. Fulk is also threatening to take the all-time walks record as well as having 91 total compared to the record set at 121. Of the four opponents, the Falcons have only seen two before. George Washington and Samford are new faces to the Falcons and the weekend will mark the first contest between the schools. The Falcons lead the overall series with George Mason, 3-1. The Falcon’s will also face Winthrop, a team that beat the Falcons this past season 9-8 in a close contest. “This year, it’s a really simple word, they’re hungry.” Salsburg said. “They want it bad and they have talked about what they want this year. Last season we weren’t quite sure what we wanted. We know this year we want to be MAC Champions.”

Red Wanting Blue returns to play at Howard’s Club H By Geoff Burns Pulse Reporter

Picture frames, masks and small owls hanging from wire were a few of the decorations behind Columbus, Ohio rock band Red Wanting Blue performing at Howard’s Club H Thursday night. Toronto band, Poor Young Things opened the night with a 10-song set list, performing tracks such as “Let It Sleep,” “Blame it on the Good Times” and “Hearts and Minds,” all from its E.P titled “Let It Sleep.” Red Wanting Blue, which has performed at Howard’s Club H many times before, played songs such as “Walking Shoes,” “Audition” and “Where You Wanna Go.” Eric Hall, guitarist and vocalist for Red Wanting Blue, said it’s always nostalgic for him to play at Howard’s because of the enthusiastic crowds. “Everybody there are ready to have a good time and are ready to see

He said the band has a unique sound that separates them from other artists. “I like their sound and style of music,” Cooper said. “They really mix it up between fast songs and slow songs. They’re really good.” Matt Fratpietro, guitarist and vocalist for Poor Young Things said this has been the first time his band has performed in Bowling Green. He said a

college town audience is open to music they perform and gives the band more of a chance. “It’s cool to play in the States because a lot of Red Wanting Blue’s fans have been really supportive of us,” Fratpietro said. “[Red Wanting Blue is] playing at big theaters instead of little clubs, so it’s definitely been an experience.” Hall said performing live has to do with a sense of community and connections which impacts both sides of the stage. “If we enjoy what we write, other people will enjoy it,” Hall said. “Coming to towns like Bowling Green, you see many people knowing the words to our songs. It’s always something positive from the people here.”

“When people are in long-term relationships, the assumption is that the relationship will continue and will be successful over time,” Wott said. “Identity development continues through the college years.” Wott explained that it is common for values and goals to change and significant others may no longer share important values and beliefs. Along with being interested in other things, partners may become interested in other people, said Sandra Faulkner, communications professor at the University. “It depends on the other people you meet,” Faulkner said. “We think about our

For Flaig, communication has been a key aspect to maintaining her relationship. “It’s a lot of Skype, which has been a lifesaver because we’re both in to school and not able to talk as much,” Flaig said. Flaig said the two text throughout the day and have frequent phone calls as well. Communication may

Other problems may occur in long-distance relationships, because there is not enough face-to-face communication between partners, Faulkner said. Wott also explained why physical interaction with partners is important. “An important part of romantic relationships is having joint experiences, and day-to-day interactions often help to build intimacy,” Wott said. “Studies show that in terms of interpersonal attraction, we are attracted to those who we are in frequent contact with. The more people experience something, the

Tot, Kanz, and Estrada had a lot of help from the community in the making of his videos. “Bobby from BG Carry Out has been really helpful,” they said. “Also, Alex the bartender at Tubby’s has acted for us.” Ot her bu si nesses around town have helped make the videos possible.

be easy for Flaig and her fiancé, but another obstacle in long distance relationships can be trust. “You can’t be possessive and say ‘you can’t go out because I’m not with you,’” Longmore said. “You have to trust that person is behaving appropriately.” In order to enforce trust, it is important to set boundaries, said Steve Kaplan, a pre-doctoral intern at the Counseling Center. “You need to set ex pectat ions when t he person can’t be there,” Kapla n sa id, rega rding pa r t ners going out on the weekends. Trust comes easy for

Flaig, however. “We’re not really bar scene people,” she said. “Since we grew up together, we have a lot of the same friends. I know them, I trust them and know nothing will happen.” Flaig said this trust stems from knowing her fiancé since middle school. Knowing the person well enough before getting into a relationship is also what Flaig said helps make it last. “That’s why it’s worked so well for us,” she said. “If you’re together for two weeks then going to be apart, it’s going to be different. Don’t rush into things; take it slow.”

Student revealed as ‘ask Kristi’ Tabitha Timbrook

By Bridjet Mendyuk Multimedia Editor

The “Ask Kristi” campaign finally revealed itself on campus to be a part of Dance Marathon. Students around campus have been posting statuses on Facebook and messages on Twitter, “Who’s Kristi?” With neon pink posters plastered in bathrooms and various building on campus, Kristi was revealed this week. Senior Tabitha Timbrook, it turns out, was the brains behind the operation. “Ask Kristi was a promotional campaign we did for Dance Marathon,” Timbrook said. “Kristi is our contact at the hospital who gets in touch with all the Miracle families that we help.” Dance Marathon, an organization that raises money through fundraisers and donations for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Mercy Children’s in Toledo, wanted to get the

VOICE From Page 1 to close its doors, the community offered its support, Newlove said. The support has come in many forms; people have come to Newlove’s house with checks, called her and $2,600 have been donated through the organization’s website,, Newlove said. The support from the community has made Newlove “feel wonderful that people really cared and are aware of who we are and what we do.” James Bachman, part time instructor at the University and a retired Wood County judge, said Newlove came and spoke to a group of women in one of his classes this past year. Having speakers like her is important to the community, he said. “I was a judge on trial courts for 18 years, we certainly had too many domestic violence cases,” Bachman said. “I think Alicia’s Voice is simply another part of that whole effort of making us aware of the importance and severity of domestic violence,” he said.

word out early. Freshman Emily Dick said she saw the flyers in the girl’s bathroom in Olscamp, as well as on Twitter. “I think now that I know it’s a fundraiser it’s kind of anticlimactic,” Dick said. “I think people will look into it though.” The fliers started two weeks ago to generate conversation with students about the mystery of the topic, Timbrook said. The idea came from a graduate who had seen the same campaign for a fundraiser at the University of Florida. “We used the same strategy,” Timbrook said. “The whole idea is to not put any contact information about it so people can talk about it first.” Emily Manders, a gradu-

ate student, said she thought the posters were for a cause against domestic violence. “I think the message could’ve been more direct,” Manders said. “I kind of dismissed it, but it’s interesting that it could’ve been anything.” This week, Dance Marathon put up the same signs but with contact information on how to get involved in Dance Marathon. Coordinators of Dance Marathon are wearing shirts this week with the information on the back of the shirt as well. “People have been coming up to me asking about it,” Timbrook said. “It’s a way to get people to talk about it since we’re just trying to keep events going to get people more involved.” Next week, Dance Marathon is hosting fundraisers on Thursday such as Battle of the Bands at ClaZel and “Are You Smarter Than an Undergraduate?” in the Union.

Hilary Sanders, a junior who has been a victim’s advocate herself since Nov. 2010, was in the group that attended Newlove’s presentation, she said. “It was very eye-opening and hard to listen to at some points,” she said. Sanders had heard of Alicia’s Voice and the organization’s story, but said Newlove’s talk put the organization’s story into perspective for her. “What she provides, it’s amazing,” Sanders said. “She takes it upon herself to provide anything and everything she can to women who are in that situation.” Newlove founded Alicia’s Voice in 2007 after her daughter, Alicia Castillion, died from an instance of domestic violence. Alicia’s Voice has helped more than 1,400 women in the almost six years it has existed, Newlove said, and that’s what matters to her. “This is my daughter’s legacy,” she said. “I don’t want to see her legacy end.” No matter how successful the fundraiser is, and even if the organization must close the doors of its headquarters on Main Street, Alicia’s Voice

will still have a presence in the community, Newlove said. The headquarters of Alicia’s Voice offers the organization a place to host board meetings, write checks for the women it helps and store supplies for women, Newlove said. About a year ago, the organization began helping to educate women, Newlove said. It has sent six women to nursing school and plans to keep educating women no matter what, she said. Education helps women in the long term, which is more important than helping them in the short term, though the The BG News will not knowingly accept advertisements that discrimiorganization would like to do nate, or encourage discrimination both, Newlove said. against any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, creed, The organization will do religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, status as a veteran, everything it can to keep its or on the basis of any other legally protected status. headquarters open, Newlove said.
