CMU earns 5-star ‘Champions of Character’ rating Central Methodist has been named a 2012-13 NAIA Champions of Character Five-Star Institution and tied for second in the country with a 98 out of 100 points on the Champions of Character Scorecard. The Eagles tied for second with Columbia (S.C.), and both institutions fell one point shy of Oklahoma Baptist. The Champions of Character Scorecard measures each institution’s commitment to the NAIA Champions of Character program. Points are earned in five key areas: character training, conduct in competition, character recognition, academic focus and character promotion. This year, more than 80 percent of NAIA member institutions scored the 60 points necessary to be named Five-Star Champions

IN SPITE OF RAIN and blustery winds last Saturday, more than 50 high school and junior high bands from throughout Missouri converged on the streets of Fayette and the CMU campus for the university’s annual Band Day, a tradition at Central since the mid-1960s. Here, the CMU Marching Eagles lead-off the street competition shortly after 9 a.m. Results of the various competitions will be printed in the Oct. 23 issue of the paper.

president since 2008. Earlier he served as an education policy lobbyist and as an event organizer for two Illinois governors, and spent a year working for the Illinois Department of Agriculture’s State Fair Bureau. At Murray State, Jacobs has been responsible for the daily operations of the university and worked closely with campus groups and individuals to advance its mission. MSU enrolls some 10,800 students and its operating budget exceeds $150 million. He worked on branding and case development for its recently-completed $72 million fund drive. At CMU, Jacobs will direct a nine member staff tasked with various fund-raising and alumni

relations duties. The annual fund, corporate and foundation relations, prospect research, major gifts, planned giving, comprehensive and capital campaigns, plus alumni and constituent relations will be among his responsibilities. And although it has not been formally announced, one of his key challenges will be to direct the upcoming capital fund campaign for renovation of CMU’s 50-year-old Stedman Hall of Science. “CMU has been innovative in its efforts to serve its broad base of students, and one of the goals for our advancement team is to build upon the strong reputation of the institution,” Jacobs said. He will be part of the CMU senior staff along with four oth-

er vice presidents. Jacobs will work closely with the advancement committee of the Board of Trustees,in addition to other trustee committees and CMU’s Alumni Association board of directors. While his duties are diverse, Jacobs notes that it all comes down to working with university constituents and donor prospects to strengthen CMU’s financial resources. In addition to a doctor of education degree from Vanderbilt University, Jacobs has a master’s degree in organizational management from Fielding Graduate University (Santa Barbara, Calif.) in addition to a bachelor’s degree (biology/premedicine) from Millikin University in Decatur, Ill..

Central Methodist University has a long and proud history of marching bands and concert bands. In this 1910 photo, students who were part of the very first band (at what was then Central College) pose on the steps of Science Hall. The building was renamed T. Berry Smith Hall in 1963 following the completion of Stedman Hall of Science. For the first 15 years of its existence, Central’s band program was entirely student-led. The first faculty member hired to direct bands was K.K. Anderson who served from 1925 to 1952 as part of the Swinney Conservatory of Music. Under his leadership, the college’s band program gained statewide recognition. JHS

Biology internships provide valuable experience

By KELLY PETERSON Collegian Reporter In the field of biology, internships can be highly beneficial. Numerous CMU students have completed the 120 hours needed for an internship. Along with the required 120 hours, a daily journal, and a paper

are required for biology internships at CMU. As a student who did an internship this summer, I know first hand the benefits that accompany an experience of this nature. Thi summer I worked in a dental office assisting a dentist. This opportunity improved my hands-on

Champions of Character (Continued from Page 1) of Character Institutions. CMU is one of 23 NAIAmember schools to have been recognized as a Champion of Character Institution (2002-09) and a Champion of Character Five Star Institution (2010-13) every year since the inception of the award. For the second-straight year, all 23 NAIA Conferences were named Five Star Champions of Character Conferences, requiring at least 60 percent of its members to earn Five Star status. CMU is a member of the Heart of America Athletic Conference, one of eight conferences with 100 percent of its member schools making the

grade. Since 1937, the NAIA has administered programs and championships in proper balance with the overall educational experience. In 2000, the NAIA reaffirmed its purpose to enhance the characterbuilding aspects of sport. Through the Champions of Character program, the NAIA seeks to create an environment in which every student-athlete, coach, official and spectator is committed to the true spirit of competition through five core values: integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership.

experience in becoming familiar with the everyday routine of working in a dental office, as well as the patience needed to do so. Kidus Birhanu, a junior biology major at CMU, completed an internship this summer at St. Paul Hospital. He worked under a doctor making rounds, seeing patients, and observing how physicians come up with a diagnosis and treatment method for their patients. “Internships give direct interactions with the patients,” Birhanu said. “It’s different than just sitting in a classroom.” Kaitlynn Troxel, another junior CMU biology major, interned with Donal Danforth Plant Science Center. She explained that

internships help create networks with people that will be beneficial in the future. “This internship was the best experience I could have,” Troxel said. She highly recommends that everyone participate in some sort of internship. As noted by our fellow CMU peers, internship opportunities are possible and can be extremely beneficial. And they are not limited to only business and professional occupations. If you have questions regarding how to apply and obtain a biology internship during the summer of 2014, contact Professors Greg Thurmon, Paul Porneluzi, or Michael Tilley.

Hackman named to head CMU professional education

Switches from business division to teacher training

At face value, Sally Hackman’s new position at Central Methodist University would not appear to be a major move. Yet as the new chair of CMU’s Division of Professional Education would affirm, appearances can be deceiving. She’s still at Central Methodist, where she has worked since 1999. Physically, Hackman’s new office isn’t far from her old one in T. Berry Smith Hall. On the organizational chart, she moved from chairing one division (Accounting, Business and Economics) to another. Hackman’s job remains a mix of administration and management with some teaching. She’s still the CMU Faculty Athletic Representative and active on other CMU committees. She even has the good fortune to have her predecessor, Dr. Nancy Hadfield, around to consult with: Hadfield, the former head of Professional Education, continues to teach some classes for CMU.

Yet the new job leading CMU’s teacher-training division is strikingly different from her former role heading its business division. Ironically, a big change is that her new role requires even more organizational work – the type of business skills she used to teach. “In the Business Division, administration was about 10 percent of my job and teaching was about 90 percent,” Hackman said. “Now, it seems like 99 percent of my work is administrative. This really is more a management position, and I’m using more business skills.” Hackman is native of Glasgow, and she and her husband Doug and children Blake, Hayden and Brooke still live there. So do her parents, Harley and Miriam (a Central alumna) Gebhardt. She serves on the local school board, and worked parttime in a local bank. So Howard County is home and she’s grown up around CMU, though she graduated from the University of Central Missouri and received her master of business administration degree from the University of Missouri. Her first teaching job was at Clopton High School near

Former missionary inspires students Central students were in for a treat during chapel service Sept. 24. Pastor Yvi Martin visited our campus as a guest speaker and provided us with a special message. Martin has been, a pastor at King’s Way United Methodist Church in Springfield since 2009. With seminary training from the Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, Martin has spent two years living and working as a missionary in Beira, Mozambique. Our guest had prepared an extraordinary message for students, staff, and faculty alike. Her sermon addressed issues of dark times in life and the gospel story of Jesus walking over the water to meet his disciples (can be found in Matthew 14:22-33) was told.

Martin directs specific focus to the detail in this story where Jesus went out to his followers only when it was the darkest part of the night, just before dawn. Including a comical recap of her own college days — those “all-nighters” before some big paper was due — she got to the heart of the message: We all have experienced dark hours, and that those moments are right before some great truth is about to be revealed, right before the light begins to shine again. Pastor Martin visited our campus to inspire CMU. With her passionate gospel message, and the voice of personal experience, she was able to do just that. Chapel services are held every Tuesday at 10 a.m. on the fourth floor of the Inman Student Center and Community Center.

At Central Methodist University we have a small yet talented group of Pre Law students determined to become valued members of the legal field. As part of the Law school application process applicants must take the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test). It is the mission of CMU’s Pre Law Club (under supervision of pre-law advisor Dr. John Carter) to assist those who wish to undertake such an endeavor. Students have banded together to achieve

the best LSAT scores possible. Anyone considering going to law school who would like to join a group of motivated students willing to help each other prepare for the LSAT should feel free to come a bi-weekly meeting held in McMurry Hall. Club members go over problems and practice questions that are seen on the real test. Mock tests are scheduled by Dr. Carter throughout the semester.

Pre-law group welcomes new members

Clarksville, Mo. Hackman later taught business for one year at Keytesville High School, but then a faculty position at CMU opened up in 1999, and she was hired. Some look at smaller institutions as a stepping stone, but Hackman “hoped I’d stay.

“Coming from Glasgow, and living there now, I like the location,” she said. “Even more importantly, I like the CMU community – it’s a great place to work.” Now in her 15th year at Central Methodist, Hackman still carries the academic rank of As-

sociate Professor of Business, but her focus is squarely on teacher preparation. It is a demanding field that is changing rapidly, and that rate of change shows no sign of slowing down. “We face more stringent requirements for testing our students,” Hackman said. “Hurdles are good; we want to produce good teachers, and schools expect our graduates to be prepared and qualified. “At the same time, it’s getting more difficult and more costly for our students to get into a profession that doesn’t compensate as well as others,” she noted. Keeping on top of the demands and regulations placed on the University and its students is a high priority, but Hackman also wants to see CMU increase its teacher preparation portfolio. Work is ongoing, for example, trying to launch teacher certification in biology and in chemistry, in addition to its general science certification. As one would expect, Sally Hackman sees such enhancements as the business side of education.

An unsolved mystery has been on campus since the beginning of the academic year, and there is a slim chance of it being solved anytime soon. Usually by this time in the semester students are being handed Ragout yearbooks from the previous school year, but, as most collegians have noticed, none have been passed out this fall. Questions about the whereabouts of this yearbook are being raised, thus the need for further exploration. Unfortunately, the outlook for the 2012/2013 Ragout becoming reality seems bleak. After conducting interview and getting some answers, it seems as though there might not be a 2012/2013 yearbook — or at least not anytime soon. Student Success Coordinator Joy Flan-

The Collegian •

T he Lost Yearbook ders has helped to shed light on this situation. She has been the yearbook advisor for more than five years, and she explained how it has become increasingly difficult to get students excited about the publication . “Nobody really cared enough,” she stated. While not articulated by Flanders in so many words, students apparently weren’t submitting pictures and the yearbook staff was less than enthusiastic about putting it together. She explained that $16,000 is spent and budgeted to create the yearbook, and about 300 to 400 yearbooks (of the total 800 copies) are put in storage because students don’t want them. As last year’s academic school year was progressing it became apparent that the yearbook was probably not going to happen. However, the decision was made

to create a digital copy of the Ragout because the Advancement Office keeps them as a record source for the alumni. This is then where everything comes to a halt. Last year, a representative from the Student Government Association agreed to do an online Ragout; however, that student that has since graduated to start a life and career outside of Fayette and the CMU community. Without word on how it’s going, current students have no way of knowing whether or not a 2012/2013 digital yearbook copy is actually in the works. So now we await for its completion and distribution surrounded by uncertainty and improbability. Many students are aware that a $10 yearbook fee is included in their tuition every semester. The question remains

(now that last year’s yearbook is supposedly being converted to a digital copy) what happened to the $20 every student had to pay for the entire year? Ken Oliver, vice president for institutional growth and student Engagement, stated: “It’s my understanding that we had outstanding balances for the previous years’ yearbooks, and the money went to that.” Although the 2012-2013 Ragout is incognito at the moment, the new yearbook for 2013-14 is already in the works for this academic year and it will be printed and distributed accordingly. If you are unsure whether or not to submit photographs to the yearbook, think about how you’ll feel 10 or 20 years down the road. Will you want your time at Central Methodist remembered? Tell us what you think about “the lost yearbook.” Send comments to the

SGA President’s Report

Now playing

“The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” has opened the 2013-14 theater arts season in Central Methdodist University’s Little Theatre. The production runs through Sunday, Oct. 13. General admission is $8; CMU faculty and staff, $5; and student tickets are $2. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Because Saturday is also CMU’s Family Day, the play time has been

changed to 2 p.m. on that day (rather than 7:30) so families can attend. A special price will accompany the change—tickets will be $2 for everyone. The Sunday matinee is 1:30 p.m. The play is intended for mature audience because of some adult language and situations. Here, Jon Connor as Patrick O’Reilly and Eileen Stacy as Helsa Wenzel engage in a fight scene.

My fellow students, I would bring heartfelt thanks on behalf of the vice-president and the entire cabinet and senate of the Student Government Association, for electing us to this office. Since day-one, we have worked hard to serve our fellow students and represent the best interests of the entire student body. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to report on what the SGA has done thus far to enrich our shared experience. 1. Provided funding for flu shots; this year we have ordered 100 more doses to ensure that every student has received a flu shot if desired. 2. The SGA has provided international flags in the SCC rotunda; there are more than 28 countries represented at CMU and we thought this would be a good idea to recognize that diversity our school prides itself in having. 3. The SGA has sponsored orientation activities for incoming freshmen and transfer students 4. SGA has sponsored a number of tournaments through the Office of Student Develpment such as a fishing tournament, ping-pong tournament, bingo nights, splash for cash, co-ed softball and flag football. 5. SGA thus far has sponsored various trips to events such as the K.C Royals game; Cardinals vs. Cubs game in St. Louis; trip to Persche Creek; bowling nights, and spirit buses to different games. 6. SGA has provided funding for alcohol awareness education, plus having a comedian on campus, in addition to a hypnotist, a magician, ice cream social, haunted house trip, fireworks show, Sunday night movies, Collegian newspaper, pizza nights, board game nights, a barbecue for students, and family weekend. These are just a few of the activities that SGA has sponsored thus far. The OSD through Mark Stone has worked hand-inhand with the SGA to make these possible in order to provide the best college experience for CMU students. We welcome ideas through or come to one of our senate meeting and tell us what could be done better or differently. Thank you all. God bless the SGA and Central Methodist University. Go Eagles!

Mo. Valley Vikings win 48-17;hand Eagles first HAAC loss

Bruce Reyes threw for three touchdowns, all in the second half, and ran for another to lead No. 8 Missouri Valley to a 48-17 win over visiting Central Methodist, Saturday afternoon (Oct. 5) in the Heart of America Athletic Conference Football Game of the Week at Ashford Stadium. Reyes converted 21-of-30 passes for 297 yards and threw a pair of interceptions while also rushing five times for 14 yards. It was the fifth four-touchdown game of his career and the first since accounting for four scores against Evangel on Nov. 3, 2012. The Vikings (3-1, 3-0 HAAC) scored the first 20 points of the game with Reyes opening the scoring on a 13-yard scamper at the 6:45 mark of the first quarter. Malachi Daniels added scoring runs of five and one yards, respectively, and

was firmly in control headed into halftime. Ezequiel Rivera hit a 35-yard field goal just before half to get the Eagles (3-2, 2-1 HAAC) on the scoreboard. After the teams traded punts to start the 3rd quarter, Reyes was picked off by Sheldrick Walker at the Valley 38. Central Methodist converted the turnover into points as Raymond Bradley scored from five yards out to make it 20-10. The momentum was shortlived as Missouri Valley answered on the ensuring possession with a touchdown of its own. A six-play, 59-yard drive was finished off as Reyes hit Alex Benson with the first of his three second-half touchdown tosses. Turnovers on back-to-back possessions by the Eagles allowed the Vikings to put the game away as a fumble by Brad-

ley and interception by Andrew Huhman were turned into a six-yard scoring run by James Tillman and a 13-yard touchdown reception by Zach Thomas, respectively. Reyes made it four-straight touchdown possessions for the Vikings as he hit Mikquel Johnson on a 33-yard pass with 23 seconds left in the third quarter. Kaleb Borghardt ended the stretch of 28-unanswered points with a pass to Shawn Whitley from nine yards out to cap the scoring with 6:32 remaining. Del’von Franklin led the Missouri Valley receiving corps with four catches for 79 yards as 12 different players had at least one catch on the day. Whitley had five catches for 67 yards for the Eagles while Jamall Williams made four grabs for 70 yards.

Eagles down Graceland, win third straight

Central Methodist wide receiver Stephone Allen (center) is lifted in the air after scoring on a 12-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. The Eagles won their third consecutive game — and first home win of 2013 — by beating Graceland 36-27 Sept. 28 at Davis Field.

Central Methodist used a block punt return for a touchdown and safety on another high punt snap to key a 36-27 defeat of Graceland (Iowa) in Heart of America Athletic Conference action Saturday evening, Sept. 28, at Davis Field. Central Methodist (3-1, 2-0) built a 14-0 lead through the first 15 minutes, starting when a high snap over the head of Graceland (1-3, 0-2) punter Cody Thornton. Thornton tried to get the punt away from Graceland’s three-yard line, but the attempt was blocked by Ethan Epperson, and Maurice Coon scooped up the ball and dove into the endzone from three yards out. The Eagles’ advantage swelled to two touchdowns when Kaleb Borghardt found Stephone Allen from 12 yards out at the 9:57 mark. Borghardt connected on his second touchdown pass of the game, this time hitting Jamall Williams on a fade route from 16 yards out to make the score 20-0, 14 seconds into the second quarter. The Yellowjackets scored the final 10 points of the first half and first got on the board with a Raysean Brown 29-yard touchdown reception from Adam Goodvin. Thornton hit a 42-yard field goal as time ex-

pired, but the Green and Black led 20-10 at the break. Central Methodist’s Damien Stevens forced a Mike Hill fumble on the second play from scrimmage in the third quarter which was recovered by Matt Harmon at the Graceland 30. A personal foul on the Yellowjackets set the Eagles up at the visitor’s 15. Five plays later, Francois Mathews hit paydirt from three yards out to increase the edge back to three scores, 27-10. Graceland answered by scoring the next 17 points of the contest to tie the game at 27-27. Thornton converted a 29-yard field goal towards the end of the third stanza. Hill scored on a seven-yard run five minutes into the fourth quarter, and Goodvin found Brandon McNeal for a 50-yard scoring strike with 7:14 left in the game. The Yellowjackets blocked their second field goal of the night with 5:52 on the clock. However, the Eagles’ defense forced a three-and-out. On the next play, the second errant punt snap of the game sailed over Thornton’s head, and the junior kicked the ball out of the back of the end zone for a safety to give Central Methodist a 29-27 edge. The Eagles put the nail in the coffin on the next se-

Eagles men’s soccer romps Benedictine-Springfield 11-0

Central Methodist’s Guilherme Frota recorded a hat trick Oct. 2, and the Eagles erupted for nine second-half goals in an 11-0 demolition of BenedictineSpringfield (Ill.) at SHG Sports Complex. The Eagles, who have outscored the Bulldogs 22-0 in the last two matches dating back to 2012, built a 3-0 first-half lead Wednesday with goals by Mykhael Bain, Guilherme da Silveira and Ricardo Valsien. Joao Paulo Cappellanes assisted on the first goal, and Bain was credited with an assist on Valsien’s score. Frota scored the first of his three second-period goals starting in the 55th minute off a free kick from 30 yards out. The Eagles scored nine goals after halftime in a 22-minute span. Erwin Sanchez Jr. found Cristian Canevaro-Reyes in the 56th minute, and Luis Costa fed Frota in the 57th minute to make the score 6-0. Henrique Nazzaro, with aid from da Silveira, and Frota gave the Green and Black an eight-goal advantage six min-

utes later. Federico Morano, Cesar Golfetti and Nazzaro all scored in a nine-minute span to conclude the offensive barrage. Golfetti was credited with an assist on Morano’s goal. Nazarro had two goals for Central Methodist, which outshot Benedictine-Springfield 35-3, including 22-1 in the last 45 minutes. The Eagles held an 11-1 edge in corner kicks. Eagles’ goalkeepers Carlos Ribera and German Schacht each made one save as both players recorded 45 minutes of action. Bulldogs’ netminder Andrew Pedraza made 10 saves but allowed five goals in 72:33. Sebastian Pino and Oscar Garcia combined for two saves but allowed six goals the rest of the way. ******** Vanzant scores pair of goals for CMU’s seventh win Kelsey Vanzant scored two second-half goals leading Central Methodist to a 4-1 triumph at Benedictine-Springfield on Oct. 2

at the SHG Sports Complex. Cathy Tram found Ashley Bensko in the fourth minute as Benedictine-Springfield (29) took a 1-0 edge, but Central Methodist (7-4) tied the affair in the 18th minute when Nicki Noreen scored her team-leading ninth goal of the season off assists from Elvia Valdez and Lindie Adair. Three second-period goals allowed the Eagles to pull away. Vanzant netted the first of her two goals Wednesday off an assist by Noreen in the 48th minute. Bola Adeoba took a Jordie Retzlaff corner kick and put the ball in the back of the net in the 56th minute. The Noreen to Vanzant connection, this time in the 60th minute, finished off the scoring for the Eagles, who outshot the Bulldogs 21-8. Central Methodist goalkeepers Meredith Brick and Megan Bremer each made one save in the victory. Bulldogs’ netminder Lindsay Taylor had one save. ******** Central Methodist volleyball

handles Haskell Indian Nations Central Methodist improved its record to 14-7 Oct. 1 stopping Haskell Indian Nations in straight sets. The Eagles did not run away with any of the three games, winning by scores of 25-21, 25-21 and 26-24, but made the plays necessary down the stretch to come up with the wins. “We hit really aggressively,” said head coach Allison JonesOlson. “We came out, we placed the ball, we moved it around.” Jordan Jackson Julia Weber paced the Eagles in the kills category, recording 15 and 11, respectively. Haley Willis, in her first game at the libero position, led Central Methodist with 16 digs. Christine Koepke assisted 22 times. Melody Hanson finished with 19 assists. Trailing 20-19 in the first set, Weber provided a crucial kill to tie the score. That play was followed up by an athletic Willis dig which led to the kill that gave the Eagles a lead they would not relinquish. The Eagles got off to a good

start in set number two, as Jenifer Long opened the scoring with a service ace, but several errors allowed the Indians to take a 12-10 lead. They were not able to maintain that advantage however, as an error by Tiffany Runs Through touched off a 10-3 Central Methodist run. Haskell Indian Nations (4-17) made it close, but the Eagles were able to hold on to take the set. Haskell Indian Nations jumped out to a lead over the Eagles in the final set, leading for much of the way. With the score 18-14 in favor of the Indians, a kill by Katie Dozier ignited a run of five straight Eagle points. The Indians responded with a 3-0 run of their own, but Central Methodist battled back to take the lead, winning the set and the match on a Haskell Indian Nations’ attack error. “We felt we connected well with our middle hitters tonight,” Jones-Olson said, again emphasizing that her team’s aggressive hitting was the primary factor in the win. “When we got them the ball, they hit really well.”

Schmidlin earns 50th career win with CMU women’s soccer Central Methodist coach Dan Schmidlin earned his 50th career win Sept. 24 with the Central Methodist women’s soccer program as the Eagles outlasted Williams Wood 3-2 at Davis Field. Schmidlin improves to 50-44-6 in six seasons at the helm in Fayette. The Eagles’ Lindie Adair got the ball rolling early in the second minute when she beat Owls’ goalkeeper Brittany Griffin from 18 yards out following a pass by Shak Salandy. Nicki Noreen made the score 2-0 in favor of Central Methodist (6-3) in the ninth minute with an assist from Kelsey Vanzant.

Scarlet’s Advice

I NEED YOUR HELP! I am a junior here at CMU! I play a sport, and have great grades, so academics and fitness isn’t my problem. My problem is that I don’t have game. It is so bad that my mom is trying to set me up with women she doesn’t even know. The other day I had a doctor’s appointment, and she tried setting me up with the nurse. Although the nurse wasn’t ugly, she was older than my mom! At the beginning of the year she was hounding me about not having a girlfriend so much that I made up a girlfriend. When she wanted to meet her, I told her we were taking a break, “an imaginary break” at that. Please help me! I don’t know how to get my mom to stop! Sincerely, Get My Mom Off My Back Dear Get My Mom Off My Back, I can’t say I understand your pain, because the fellas be pawing at me every time I turn around! That was a joke, but seriously I can see two things need to be done here. First, don’t let your mom set you up with your cousin, even if they’re your second, third, or beyond cousins, because it still counts. It may only be illegal to marry your first cousin, but that doesn’t make your second or third cousin a good option. Just say no! Second. You act as if there aren’t plenty of desperate girls on this campus. Maybe you aren’t looking for desperate, but there are plenty of girls, surely one of them can’t be too picky to not pick you. Just wait it out a bit longer, don’t pick your nose in public, and try not to fart in mixed company because that is definitely a turn off! There isn’t much you can do about getting your mom off your back. Think about it this way, she wiped your butt for four years, so I’d say she earned her right to ride it a little bit now. Get over it. Scarlet If you have a question you need answered then email The Collegian staff at Always remember, when in doubt, give Scarlet a shout.

Snapbacks and Tattoos

Many of us have heard the famous rap song “Snapbacks and tattoos”, but this song resonates deeper than just the words. This song represents what has become a favorable lifestyle for people of all ages around the world. For years, finding a way to express one’s self has consisted of many things. From piercings, to hairstyles, to clothing, people have experimented with it all. But recently an old practice has become an exploding form of expression. The recent roar of tattoos has people of all ages expressing their memories, hopes, dreams, family and personal thoughts through ink. Having beautiful artwork permanently sketched on your body has become a symbol of pride and no longer represents a negative or derogatory meaning. Tattoos have become a beautiful form of expression consisting of feelings and emotions that give people a silent way to loudly verbalize their life. Along with tattoos, another form of style and expression has comeback and is in full revival. Snapbacks, for both men and women, have become a major fashion statement and a huge way to support a team, city or something you believe in. With “Swag cold as sickness,” snapbacks are becoming a normal occurrence during the day, at parties, dressed up or dressed down. Whether you have “nice whips, or flychicks,” or if you’re “inked up from your feet up,” snapbacks and tattoos are art and style blended with fashion in which both, make beautiful and meaningful statements. So, show of your hats and show of your tatts! Xoxo

Nursing degree collaboration begins CMU partners with Jefferson College in Arnold

Building on the strengths of Jefferson College’s bi-level nursing program and a continued emphasis on providing training for employment in high-demand healthcare fields, the first round of classes involving a new nursing partnership between Jefferson College and Central Methodist University is under way. The agreement allows area registered nurses to obtain their Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from CMU. Classes began Sept. 24 on the Jefferson College campus in Arnold; a second round of classes is gearing up to start on Jefferson’s Hillsboro campus in January. “Since the early 1970s, Jefferson College’s nursing program has enabled thousands of area residents to pursue highly successful careers at many of the top healthcare facilities in Jefferson County and the surrounding St. Louis region,” said Jefferson College President Dr. Raymond Cummiskey. “The ability to offer the BSN degree through this cooperative agreement, which takes advantage of the excellent curriculum and faculty available through CMU, greatly magnifies the potential for the program’s success,” Cummiskey said. “It is entirely appropriate that two high quality institutions should combine efforts to expand education access in the dynamic field of nursing.” “At Central Methodist University, we are thrilled with this exciting partnership with Jefferson College,” CMU President Roger Drake said. “Providing students with the opportunity to gain academic credentials, improve their lives, and strengthen their ability to serve others is consistent with our mission.”

The new program is offered in the “cohort” format, designed so a group of students can begin and complete the program together. Registered nurses can complete all coursework in 18 to 24 months, according to Heather Weber, CMU assistant dean. No more than 25 students are allowed in each cohort to ensure quality and personal attention. Unlike many other programs that are available online, the Jefferson-Central program features coursework on either the Hillsboro or Arnold campuses of Jefferson College. Courses typically meet one night each week from 6-10 p.m., for five to seven weeks. Depending on demand, the partner institutions aim to begin new cohorts twice per year at both the Hillsboro and Arnold locations. “Through this partnership, we will enhance the educational levels of practicing nurses in the region,” Weber noted. “The additional skills and knowledge graduates will obtain will benefit them, their employers, and most importantly the patients in their care.” The goal is threefold: convenience, flexibility, and affordability. Weber noted that CMU’s tuition rate for the program, currently $325 per credit hour, is among the lowest in the region for bachelor’s degrees in nursing. For more information about the program, contact CMU’s Laura Moehlman at or by calling her at 636-481-3598.
