College of Business enrollment up as it reacts to changes in job market By Farhan Coleman Staff Reporter

Of the seven academic colleges at Central Michigan University, the College of Business Administration is the only one to see a growth in overall undergraduate enrollment over the past five years. Undergraduate enrollment for the CBA rose from 1,941 students in 2012 to 2,107 in 2016, according to yearly program reports released by CMU, Enrollment statistics for 2017 have not yet been determined. Charles Crespy, dean of CBA, attributes the college’s growth to the faculty’s forward thinking focus in everything they do, with the goal of helping students prepare for the ever-changing business world they are about to join. “We try to be proactive and not reactive,” Crespy said. “We have a lot of faculty who are state of the art in their fields, so when we study things and anticipate there’s going to be market growth in certain areas, we create new majors.” The College of Business Administration monitors enrollment data closely, and works to provide its students with the best opportunities possible by adjusting to industry changes, Crespy said. As of 2016, marketing and hospitality management, accounting and management were the three programs that had the highest undergraduate enrollment, each seeing growth in the five-year period between 2012 and 2016: • Marketing and hospitality management rose from 643 to 652 • Accounting rose from 323 to 355 • Management rose from 298 to 335 While CBA looks closely at undergraduate enrollment numbers, it’s more concerned with trying to look toward the future instead of focusing on what has been popular in the past. Crespy said he and other faculty members are dedicated to designing new programs based on where they believe jobs will be in the future. “We certainly monitor (enrollment), but more important than monitoring the numbers is trying to anticipate where jobs will be and then mobilizing our faculty to create curriculum that addresses where we think the market will be in five or 10 years.” Crespy said. Due to these anticipated changes, CBA faculty members have begun putting programs in place to help prepare students for what’s ahead. Crespy said the CBA is currently working on creating a major in artificial intelligence in response to evi-

dence suggesting there will likely be more jobs in artificial intelligence and data analytics in the future. Some students have taken notice of the effort put forth by CBA staff. Freshman Ryan Baker, who is currently undecided in his major but knows he wants to go into business, voiced his approval of what CBA faculty members at Grawn Hall are doing. “In my lectures, they have people come in from different categories like ac-

counting, entrepreneurship, marketing and they come speak to us and it helps me decide what I want my major in business to be,” Baker said. “It helps me get to know them so I have the connections so that when I actually go do that major, I already know some of the faculty in there. It makes it easier for me to meet and connect with them.” Enrollment in graduate programs have also seen an increase – rising from 211 graduate students in 2012 to 291 in 2016.

Bruce Marble, executive director of the Isabella Bank Institute for Entrepreneurship, said CBA has created a new master’s program called entrepreneurial transactions that started this fall. The one-year, online program aims at helping entrepreneurs become savvier legal consumers and helping them form and finance their companies. CBA officials have noticed a new graduate program called enterprise resource planning rise in popularity, due to its connectivity among several different majors. Crespy said the graduate degree for this program has grown from 50 students in 2012 to 200 in 2016, and the undergraduate major in this area has grown as well. “Enterprise Resource Planning is a software package that has every element of the business talking to each other,” Crespy said. “That’s a growing field because every business is becoming increasingly automated.”

The Central Michigan University Police Department reported a pair of burglaries at the Towers residence halls this week. On Friday, Nov. 3, CMUPD received a report of a burglary in Cobb Hall. Residents returned to their dorm and found multiple electronic items stolen, police said. The incident took place between 8-9:15 p.m. Nov. 3. CMUPD received a report of a wallet stolen from Wheeler Hall on Saturday, Nov. 4. Police said multiple attempts were made to make unauthorized purchases. This took place between 7 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. Saturday. Both incidents are under investigation, according to police.

CMUPD offered these tips to those who live in residence halls. • Lock residence hall doors when no one is home. • Do not let strangers into the living areas of the residence halls. • Report suspicious people to CMUPD as soon as possible. Anyone with any information about these incidents are asked to call CMUPD at 989-774-3081. A university-wide email announcing these incidents was sent out late Saturday night. -Evan Sasiela, Managing Editor

Five alumni inducted into CMU Journalism Hall of Fame By Mitchell Kukulka News Editor news@cm-life.com

Five Central Michigan University alumni were inducted into the Journalism Hall of Fame, including the founder of the @APStylebook Twitter handle and the man behind Taco Bell’s 1988 “Make a run for the border” marketing campaign. The induction ceremony took place Nov. 4 at the Courtyard Marriott at CMU. Director of Student Publications David Clark served as master of ceremonies. Tony Cervone, senior vice president of global communications at General Motors Co., was the first inductee honored. Cervone’s 30-year career includes executive roles at Chrysler, Volkswagen and United Airlines, along with being recognized on PR Week’s 2016 Power List. “(The award) was overwhelming and humbling,” Cervone said. “The most important things I took from Central were how to continually challenge yourself when it comes to learning about what’s going on in the world around you. “I tell me staff all the time, ‘stay

hungry to learn, because learning all the time is the most important thing you can do.’” Steve Fecht, photographer for the news photo bureau at General Motors, was also inducted. Fecht has more than 25 years of experience as a photojournalist, photo editor and photo director. “I had the benefit of working with an incredible group of people when I was going to CMU and working at CM Life,” Fecht said. “To be part of (the Hall of Fame) now is just wonderful.” Kenneth Gal, CEO of Shiny Objects Marketing Inc. was recognized for his long career in advertising and marketing. After graduating from CMU in 1978, Gal has worked in the marketing departments for many companies, including Pepsi, Disney and KFC. In 1988, Gal spearheaded Taco Bell’s “Make a run for the border” marketing campaign, as well as the decision to lower the cost of tacos to 59 cents. Gal said being honored was flattering, and it is nice to realize that people recognize and respect your work. Jim Harger of The Grand Rapids Press and MLive Media Group,

was recognized for his more than 40-year career as a reporter. Throughout his career, Harger has worked at publications such as the Holland Sentinel, Mount Pleasant Daily Times (later The Morning Sun) and Panax Newspapers. “When I arrived (at CMU) as this farm boy from West Michigan, I didn’t know anything about newspapers other than that I read them,” Harger said. “In two years, they had turned me into a competent journalist. They do that with everyone — they take farm boys, homecoming queens, social outcasts and they teach them this trade.” The final inductee of the night was Colleen Newvine-Tebeau, product manager for the AP Stylebook and creator of the  @APStylebook Twitter account. Graduating from CMU in 1992, Newvine-Tebeau has worked as a reporter and editor for a variety of publications, including Alpena News, South Lyon Herald, the Livingston County Press, Insider Business Journal and The Ann Arbor News before joining the Associated Press in 2006.

Susan Grettenberger, professor and director of the social work program, asks questions concerning student success on Oct. 6 in the Park Library Auditorium..

Make your voices heard

As the deadline for organizational review approaches, this is another chance to voice your concerns At 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 in Charles V. Park Library Auditorium, the Academic Organizational Review Committee will host a second open forum. This forum gives students and faculty another opportunity to be updated on suggestions made and engage in the academic review process. The goal of the organizational review process is to increase student success and improve the efficiency of CMU. Ian Davison, senior vice provost for academic reorganization initiative, said any approved change has to meet these four criteria. First, any organizational change must have a clear rational. Second,

changes must have defined metrics related to strategic plan goals. Third, the change must consider costs. Fourth, the change must consider EDITORIAL the impact on the entire university. Davison is still taking suggestions and comments. Three committees have been appointed by Davison and President George Ross. The committees are tasked with overseeing the academic structure review process and make suggestions as to how the university will accomplish the goals set forth in

the 2017-22 academic strategic plan, “Advancing Excellence.” There are 31 people staffing the committees. Thirty are faculty and staff — only one is a student. Anna Owens, the president of Student Government Association, is representing all 28,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Yes, Owens is the voice of students, but she can’t accurately convey our concerns and fears if we don’t voice them. She needs our input and involvement. Attend the forum and make your voice heard. Last time, faculty and staff expressed their concerns about the transparency

and aggressive timetable the university is pursuing. At the previous forum, J. Cherie Strachan, a professor of political science and public administration, said, “If you really were considering what your faculty were doing on a day-today basis, and you really wanted our input, you would give us time to be thoughtful and deliberative.” We know faculty and staff are concerned, but students have yet to say anything. During the forum in October, only faculty and staff were present. The only students there were Central Michigan Life reporters.

Any approved changes will affect every student, especially freshmen who will feel the most immediate effects. Even non-traditional students who spend five or six years on campus will feel these effects too. There’s so much this reorganization will affect in students’ lives. It’s too important to stand back and be in the dark about this. It’s November — the process deadline is January, so there’s not much time left. Students need to make their voices heard in this process. We urge you to be at Park Library Auditorium at 1 p.m. Nov. 10.

OPINION

It’s great to leave CMU as sports editor, it’s better with a win over Western As the final seconds ticked off the clock, I looked around the press box wondering what just happened. The Central Michigan football team had defeated Western Michigan for the first time since 2013 — the first time during my four years at Central Michigan University. Trailing by 14 points with eight minutes remaining, both teams were going through the motions on offense as rain continued to pour down Nov. 1 at Waldo Stadium in Kalamazoo. My game story was ready to go. I began to prepare for the long drive back to Mount Pleasant, once again disappointed. But after the Chippewas forced a late fumble, everything changed.

Kullen Logsdon Sports Editor

A fire sparked in CMU I had never seen before. Sophomore running back Jonathan Ward scored two plays later to make it a one-score game. Then the Chippewas got a stop on defense and blocked WMU’s punt. Graduate transfer quarterback Shane Morris found senior wide receiver Eric Cooper for the tying touchdown three plays later.

CMU then did the unthinkable. It pulled off a surprise onside kick on the Broncos to get the ball back with a chance to win. After both teams punted, the Chippewas got the ball back once again on their own 23-yard line. CMU wasted no time. On the first play Morris wound back and found senior wide receiver Corey Willis for the 77-yard game-winning score. It was over. CMU had finally beaten WMU again. Walking through the tunnel after the game, you could see just how much the victory meant to the players, coaches and family members. People hugged and tears were shed.

I couldn’t help but smile. As reporters, we are supposed to be neutral when it comes to our reporting and being on the school newspaper is supposed to be no different than if I were reporting for USA Today or some large-scale news outlet. But at the end of the day, we are just as much Chippewas as any other students. And deep down, we root for our teams and hope they succeed. I grew up loving football and became a fan of CMU’s program during the days of Dan LeFevour and Antonio Brown. Since coming here and working for Central Michigan Life, my appreciation has grown even further after forming relationships with players and coaches.

WMU has had CMU’s number since P.J. Fleck took over and “rowed the boat” over the Chippewas each of the last three seasons. With my graduation coming in a mere six weeks, I wondered if I would look back on my time at CMU and not be able to brag about the time we “whopped the Broncos”, just like I hear the alumni talk about each year at homecoming. When the final seconds ticked off and the score board went final, my doubts went away and my sense of school pride had never been higher. The Broncos were defeated and the Victory Cannon was finally returning to Mount Pleasant.

Tigers fans should be happy to see Verlander earn World Series ring Justin Verlander has received numerous accolades since starting his Major League Baseball pitching career in 2005. American League Most Valuable Player, American League Cy Young Award Winner, two no-hitter games — all with the Detroit Tigers. But Verlander was missing something that would ease his entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame — a World Series ring. He earned that ring Nov. 1, as a member of the Houston Astros. And Tigers fans should be happy for him. Even on another team, he is always “must see JV.” The Tigers were atrocious. The team lost 119 games, the worst in American League history. In 2006, Verlander landed in the Tigers rotation as the No. 5 starter. En route to winning AL Rookie of the Year, the Tigers landed in the World Series for

the first time since 1984. It wasn’t long before Verlander would consistently be starting on Opening Days for Detroit as the Tigers’ ace. With a fastball in the upper-90s, he could crank it back and still shock the radar gun in the later innings of games. Verlander has been named to the AL All-Star team six times. He won the Triple Crown in 2011 — leading the AL in wins, strikeouts and earned run average. From 2005-17, Verlander was the face of the Tigers’ franchise. If you visited any game at Comerica Park after 2006, there were several people donning

Verlander’s No. 35. Which is why it was bittersweet when those jerseys went to the clearance rack after Verlander was traded to Houston at 11:59 p.m. Aug. 31 — the deadline for trades, so a player could compete on a postseason roster. Verlander said it was the hardest decision of his life. If he agreed, he would leave behind the city and team where he catapulted his career. He would have to say goodbye to the children who grew up watching him, including me. But Verlander is a competitor, which is why I and other fans love him. He wanted to win a World Series. He did. He deserves it. Verlander is a dominant pitcher on the mound and as good of a guy off it. He said he would donate his entire postseason bonus to charity. After Houston won its first World Series in franchise history Wednesday,

Verlander in his post-game interview thanked Detroit, and added the fans “will always have a special place in my heart.” Verlander holds a special place in my heart. Going back to 2003, the Tigers were supposed to be terrible for a long time. But for recent years, the Tigers were contending for a World Series — mak-

STORY BY AVERY JENNINGS, Staff Reporter PHOTOS BY JOSIE NORRIS, Freelance Photographer Robby Powers stands in a circle with the trumpet section on the Jack Saunders practice field during rehearsal for the Marching Chippewas on Sept. 22.

Freshman who lost leg at birth relishes opportunity to perform with Marching Chips

O

Robby Powers tells a story to fellow trumpet section member Sterling Heights freshman Tim LaMothe over dinner at Fresh Food Co. on Oct. 2.

n the day Robby Powers was born, his doctors faced a terrible realization: to save this baby’s life they would have to amputate his left leg. Amputate or die. “My leg was a lump of dead tissue, so the doctors had to cut mom open,” Powers said. The reason for Powers’ amputation was a blood clot, which formed in his left leg in utero. He spent the first two months of his life in the hospital. At the time, he wasn’t breathing or urinating properly, he said — a rough start for a baby. In fact, he still deals with complications from his early childhood. “My right kidney is basically fail-

ing,” Powers said. “It’s working at about 10 percent, maybe less right now. I don’t need it. It just makes things a little more difficult.” Though the Brighton freshman began life with only his right leg, that didn’t stop him from joining marching band ­—­­a requirement for any student pursuing a music degree. Now he plays in Central Michigan University’s marching band trumpet section. “I’d be doing it anyway even if it wasn’t required, but I enjoy the program so much,” Powers said. “I’ve always enjoyed the vibe (and) the connections you make with people.” w POWERS | 16

FAMILY, FRIENDS AND MUSIC Powers has been pursuing music since he was a little kid. He recalls singing selections from his favorite musicals such as “Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang,” “The Music Man” and

“Mary Poppins” while walking to his bus stop. “Ever since I was three, I’ve been obsessed with watching musicals,” Powers said. “I was a total music geek.” Powers has been surrounded by music his entire life. His dad, who plays guitar and sings, has eight brothers and sisters — all of whom are musically inclined. That includes

an uncle who plays bass, another uncle who plays saxophone, an aunt who plays flute and another uncle who “plays harmonica like a beast,” Powers said. On his mom’s side of the family, influences are just as prevalent. His cousins play french horn, snare drum, oboe, trombone and one was a high school drum major. Everyone on her side of the family, Powers said, sings

“pretty dang good.” Powers also mentioned his aunt who “is a music teacher; she plays piano and accompanies a choir in Southfield. We’re very musicallyoriented,” he said. The students who make up the trumpet section of CMU’s marching band are a big reason why Powers is loving his time on the field. “If you met this trumpet section,

you’d laugh your butt off. These guys are so funny, they’re great people,” Powers said. “The section leader is fantastic. I thought Brighton was good and then I came here and was like ‘these guys are great.’ Being a part of something that’s a little bit bigger than me is big reason why I stay motivated. These guys are great and I aspire to be as good as they are.”

In between class and band practice, Robby Powers changes the liner he uses with his prosthetic leg in his dorm room Oct. 12. Powers’ left leg was amputated at birth and he walks with the aid of a prosthetic leg. “I don’t even notice it anymore,” says Powers. Life with one leg is a bit different for Powers but “it doesn’t stop me from sleeping through eight alarms,” he said with a laugh.

Trumpet section leader Andrew Jensen said Powers motivates them just as much as they motive him. He can crack a joke every once in awhile, too. “The energy he brings, the amount of work he does on a daily basis, you just want to do better when he’s around,” Jensen said. “His attitude is so great on the field, and it’s great to be around.” Jensen said Powers’ personality and character are what stand out the most about him. “Just having him around is always a good experience,” Jensen said. “He’s hilarious on the field. When we have long days, whether that’s 12 hours of band on Saturday, or every day of practice, he’s always working hard. (Powers) does everything he can to not let his leg affect his marching.” As far as being the trumpet section leader some day, Jensen said it’s almost guaranteed. “He could totally do it,” he said. “He has the musical ability to lead the rehearsals and he has the experience of being a drum major in high school. He has all the qualities that would make him a good choice for it.” If it weren’t for music, Powers doesn’t know what else

he would be doing. “When I was little, I wanted to be a professional baseball player,” he said. “(But) I was like ‘there’s no way that would ever happen’.” Following graduation, Powers wants to be involved in music somehow. He’s unsure about exactly what direction that will lead him in. “I know for a fact I want to be involved with music,” Powers said. “I’ve always had a dream of being a band director at a high school or a college. I’m only a freshman so I’m just going to take my time and see where it takes me.”

POWERS’ LOVE FOR MUSIC Family friend Deb Kuptz gave trumpet lessons to Powers from seventh grade through high school. She said Powers was easy to teach because of his enthusiasm. “It was pretty obvious he had passion and drive to get better,” Kuptz said. “He can look at a piece of music and memorize it so quickly, and have a good understanding of how it goes so fast. It’s incredible.” w POWERS | 19

Powers was able to give Kuptz a “fresh set of eyes” for music and inspire her with his story. “I learned from him to always be open to new music and new things,” Kuptz said. “He tries to learn and grow as a musician and always get better.” Powers knows he impacts people with his life story, but at the end of the day, he says he’s just a music geek from Brighton. “I’m happy to be an inspiration to people,” Powers said. “But I’m just me.”

Native American Heritage Month events include hip-hop performance, craft nights By Loreal Nix Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

Students will have the chance to taste Anishinaabe food, make keychains and listen to Indigenous hip-hop music during Native American Heritage Month at Central Michigan University. A series of events that celebrate the culture and traditions of Indigenous people are scheduled throughout November. Colleen Green, the director of Native American Programs, hopes the events will generate a lot of student participation. “Native American Heritage Month is a way to spread awareness about Native American traditions,” Green said. “The campus community can learn and be educated on Native American heritage.” NAHM keynote speaker Joy Harjo, a poet and musician who has published seven books of poetry and recently published a memoir, is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 15 in Plachta Auditorium. Another key NAHM event is a hip-hop performance by rapper, filmmaker and Indigenous rights activist Nataanii Means at 6 p.m. Nov. 28 in the Moore Hall Kiva. Green also said Native American Heritage Month, as well as Hispanic Heritage Month and Black History Month, is significant to the CMU community as students get many opportunities to learn about different cultures and traditions. NAHM kicked off Nov. 1 with Environmental Awareness Day. Students volun-

The month’s events are a collaborative effort, not only with university offices and student groups, but also with the community, such as the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, Green said. Indiana junior Alexis Syrette, student assistant of Native American Programs, said she hopes Native American Heritage Month will motivate students to take time out of their days to spread awareness and enjoy learning about Indigenous culture. Throughout November, students are able to take part

in reoccurring events such as arts and craft nights from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 13 and Nov. 20 and 'Rock Your Mocs,' where students can wear moccasins all month long to bring awareness to Tribal individuality. Cultural Tables, which are interactive table displays educating people about Native American culture, will be at the Down Under Food Court in the Bovee University Center from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the month. For more information about NAHM events, students can find @CMUNativeAmericanPrograms on Facebook or visit the Native American Programs page on the CMU website.

Football becomes bowl eligible with win against Eastern Michigan Michigan. The trophy is given to the MAC team in Michigan who has the best record against the other MAC teams in the state. If CMU tops EMU, the trophy would be awarded to the Chippewas because they would be the only 2-0 team. However, if each team has a 1-1 in-state record, the trophy will stay with Western Michigan for another year. CMU last held the Michigan MAC trophy in 2013. Bowl eligibility is also up for grabs for the Chippewas this week against EMU. Last season, the Eagles defeated CMU 2621 in Rynearson Stadium in Ypsilanti. EMU started the season 2-0, then went on a six-game losing streak. The Eagles got their first MAC win against Ball State Nov. 2. “(EMU) is a very good opponent,” Bonamego said. “They are a team that is much better than its record will indicate.” Senior quarterback Brogan Roback leads the Eagles’ offense that ranks seventh in scoring offense and eighth in total offense.

Central Michigan football needs one more win. CMU will look to attain one more victory to propel itself to bowl eligibility with three games remaining. If the Chippewas win, it would be the fourth consecutive year that they participate in a bowl game. The Chippewas (5-4, 3-2 Mid-American Conference) host Eastern Michigan (6-6, 1-4 MAC) at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8 in Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The game will be aired on ESPNU. “It shows the maturity of your football team to see how you respond after a victory like (WMU),” head coach John Bonamego said. CMU has an opportunity to win another trophy against Eastern Michigan — the Michigan MAC trophy. The Michigan MAC trophy originated in 2005, and is currently held by Western

In nine games this season, Roback has tallied 202 completions for 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He averages 260.1 passing yards per game — good for second in the MAC. Roback’s favored receiver, senior Sergio Bailey II, has caught 46 passes for 763 yards and six touchdowns.

Following the EMU game, the Chippewas travel to Kent State and finish the regular season against Northern Illinois at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. CMU needs one more win to become bowl eligible in the 2017 season. CMU scored three touchdowns in

the fourth quarter to top WMU, 35-28. Senior wide receiver Corey Willis caught a 77-yard touchdown with two minutes left to take the lead for the Chippewas — their first lead of the game. Graduate transfer quarterback Shane Morris won his only game against WMU and helped give the CMU seniors a win against the Broncos before graduation. CMU had lost the last three meetings with rival WMU. “It was huge to send the seniors out with a win over Western,” said senior defensive back Josh Cox. “These last four games are critical to our season. To beat a team like Western that might be able to catapult us in the right direction to finish.” After the game, a photo of Bonamego went viral on Twitter. In the photo, Bonamego was seen sleeping next to the Victory Cannon trophy. “That was Paulette (Bonamego) being a jokester,” Bonamego said. “I pretty much passed out in the bed and woke up to (her) maniacal laughter.”
