Design on a Dime By Kaitlin Torke

or the every day college kid, decorating has to be thrifty and cute. The lovely white cinder-block look of most dorms and the bland, repetitive look of an apartment have to be spiced up into your own personal space. With the use of organization, color and home dĂŠcor, any apartment or dorm can be spiced up to your liking. The biggest challenge in any dorm or apartment is the lack of space. And lets face it, we are material creatures and have many things to fit into one living area. The best idea for students living in a dorm to maximize space is lofting your bed to allow a study area underneath. A desk fits nicely underneath with enough room for a small bookcase or other organizational

bin. The Container Store and IKEA have a plethora of organizational options available for purchase online for prices suitable for a college student. The Container Store even has a “Dorm� category on their homepage

for easy navigation. Be sure to check the dimensions of your purchases to be sure it fits in the space you are looking to fill. The use of color is a huge plus when living in a dorm. Using a colorful bedspread (Continued on pg. 6)


(Continued from pg. 4) or colorful throw pillows will spice up the bland white walls since most dorms do not allow any sort of painting. Huge stores like IKEA, Pottery Barn and Bed, Bath and Beyond have great stylish options for the dorm room. Need a few more things to personalize your room? Many students have a collage wall in their dorm. A collage wall is a wall filled with pictures from high school and memories made in college. It adds a personalized touch to any room. Adhesives made by 3M are a great option so as to not ruin the wall or your photographs. You can pick these up at any office supply store like Office Depot. or Walmart. Now, if you are living in an apartment, organization is key with many people living in the same space. The Container Store is still a great option to look for containers to organize your many things. Make sure you and your roommates have come to an agreement of color scheme and who is going to purchase what before you start decorating. Also, stores like Hobby Lobby and World Market have so many home dĂŠcor touches and knick-knacks that will be sure to liven up any room. These items are cheap and perfect for any college kid living area. Online stores make for fast, easy purchases. Pier 1 Imports and IKEA will delivery directly to you with easy returns, but online sites can give you great ideas to jumpstart how your apartment will be decorated. Most store websites have a mock space decorated with links to the products they use. Use these mockups to brainstorm ideas. Sites like www.hgtv.com will give you wonderful tips and ideas to decorate your space as well as creative ways to organize and make full use of your space. Ask your landlord what you can and cannot do with the space. If paint is allowed, paint an accent wall on one side of a room any color of your choosing, and it will immediately liven the place up. With these general tips and places to get your home dĂŠcor, your living space will feel like a home away from home.

obile platforms like Android and iOS (iPhones and iPads) have changed the way we play, live and act, but did you know that your mobile phone could save you a lot of money anytime and anywhere? You have the ability to price check, find coupons and even shop directly from your phone wherever you may be. Comparing Prices The simplest way to save money from your phone is to download a simple barcode reader app to your smartphone. Most barcode-reading apps have a native function that searches the Internet for stores that carry the product and their pricing. These stores can be online or sometimes

Deals on the Go Groupon and Living Social have lead the market in group deals. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of these “group deals,” a local company offers a product at half price with the stipulation that a certain number of products must be sold or the deal is canceled. Word to the cautious consumer: these “daily deals” are subject to the same rules of pricing that all goods and services are--you get what you pay for. Some vouchers are only good for the day that you purchase them while others have a shelf life of over a year. It’s best to read the find print when purchasing any daily deals. Also, shipping

and handling may not be included in the discounted price you pay, and, for big items, that could be some major money. Groupon and Living Social have mobile apps that let you access its daily deals on your phone, however customers can only buy one deal a day. Moving away from the coupon savings is the half off custom shop trend. With products ranging from camping gear to Prada to houseware, these shops let you buy exclusive design items at substantial discount. Although the best deals sell out very quickly, these outlets give more room for smart spending with deep discounts. If that sounds good to you, try out these sites. For the high-end spenders, Gilt Group features luxurious brands with incredible savings. Fab.com is the leader in half-off home accessories. For the guys out there, JackThreads offers cool clothes and gear to keep you looking your best. Amazon’s MyHabit is also a great all around half-off shop featuring some of the most popular items from the online mega-retailer. (Continued on pg. 10)

Amazon has a native application for your smartphone and gives students’ unlimited two-day shipping through a discounted Amazon Prime account. Other sites like eBay mobile can help you find that vintage leather jacket or fixed-gear bicycle you’ve been pining after. Lastly, Craigslist is the shady brother of eBay and Amazon. You can find PS3s for under $200 and Vespas for half the retail price. You can even find a date if Internet dating sites don’t work.

Your phone can still save you money at your local retailers as well. Most big storefront retail shops have their coupons online. All you need is a little help finding them. There are a few great coupon aggregators on the iOS like GeoQpons, Coupon Sherpa and binggo. A quick search for “coupon” on Google Play will yield similar results for Android powered devices. These apps can save you money at the places you are already going because, in some situations, it’s hard to know true

details about items (like clothes sizes) without trying them on first.

Gameday/Tailgate Essentials By Kaitlin Torke

T

here are three priorities on fall Saturday nights in Death Valley: football, football and, most importantly, football. To get through a Saturday night in Death Valley, one has to prepare for the victory by tailgating the day away in the Louisiana heat. The typical Saturday in Baton Rouge consists of food, alcohol and the company of great friends and family. For the tailgating newbie, one must cover a few bases to guarantee a grand ‘ole time in Tiger Stadium. The first of which is wardrobe. Stepping into tailgating territory, fans have to wear that infamous color combination of purple and gold. For those looking for a more casual option, various places have loads upon loads of (Continued on pg. 6)

(Continued from pg. 11) tiger-stamped t-shirts. The LSU Bookstore has more than enough apparel to go around. They have t-shirts, sweatshirts and hats to sport on game days. Other stores among others carrying the same apparel close to campus are Co-Op Bookstore on Burbank Drive and Tiger Mania on Highland Road. For women who want to dress-up a bit more, every boutique within a 15 miles radius carry purple and gold apparel year round. Vertigo Clothing Company, located on Lee Drive, carries blouses, skirts, tank tops and shorts in print or solid purple and gold. Other boutiques like Rodeo, Posh and Blink boutiques, all located on Highland Road, sell high quality women’s clothing perfect for looking your best on game day. The boutiques also take pictures of their entire inventory and post them on their Facebook pages to allow customers to order online and preview the stock before stepping one foot in the store. Tailgating in Baton Rouge is not a pastime or a hobby; it is an art form. Tailgating masters have been practicing this art form for many years and traditions have been passed on from one grill master to the next. Tailgate essentials include a well-stocked ice chest, top-of-the-line grill and various tools to help you get the job done. The best ice chests to take tailgating are those with wheels and ones that can hold a lot of beverages. Coleman and Igloo wheeled ice chests are lowest priced at $50 and can be found at Wal-Mart, Dick’s Sporting Goods, among many others. The next essential item on the list is the grill. Team Grill, a company that specializes in tailgating products, makes a collapsible, 55-pound grill that is the perfect addition to the tailgating tent. Some other essentials that many may not realize to bring are canopeners, scissors and bottle openers. Tailgating in Baton Rouge is unlike any other college town. It starts early and ends late. And there is no time for sitting and casually drinking a beer. We celebrate the victory hours before the final score is recorded. Dressed to impress and equipped with the right stuff, your tailgating experience in Death Valley is one unforgettable experience.

oving is overwhelming. Whether you are moving into your first apartment or your second move this semester, there are always ways to make the move easier. Although knowing isn’t half the battle when moving, knowing who to call and the options available to you can save a lot of time and energy. The first step to a successful move is to know your timeline and task. Do your leases overlap or will you need to find storage? Do you have boxes? How far is the new place from the old? And how many trips do you think the move will take? Answer these questions and you will have a better idea of what to do next. Boxes are some of the easiest things to get. Most grocery stores and other retail shops have boxes they throw away daily. Give your local supermarket or gas station a call and see if you could pick up the extra ones they had. If you can’t find any free ones, the easiest source of boxes is your local truck rental station like U-Haul or a shipping center like UPS Store or Mail Boxes, Etc. Knowing you need boxes ahead of time gives you a chance to save a lot of money by giving you time to find free boxes or

order some off the web. A few great resources are uline.com and usedcardboardboxes.com. Usedcardboardboxes.com even offers packing kits supplied with an assortment of boxes, tissue paper, tape and dispenser. Any of these supplies should also be available at your local hardware or office supply store. If your living arrangements don’t overlap, that means you need a place to keep your stuff. Most college students can fit all of their things in a spare room that their family may be able to take. That isn’t the case with all moves—you may have to rent a storage locker. Non-climate-controlled storage units cost from about $50 for a 5 ft. by 5 ft. locker to $150 for much larger ones. Expect to pay an extra $20 to $150 dollars for climate-controlled storage. We suggest a climate-controlled unit for anyone needing to store nice furniture, electronics or anything else you would not feel comfort leaving in your hot car all summer. Truck rental is between $50-$100 per day. Rental price depends on the length when the rental period. Also, make sure you or a friend is eligible to drive your moving truck and is willing to be liable for any accidents that happen while you have the truck. The hardest part of moving is to find help loading and unloading. Friends are easy to bribe with dinner or beverages. Just make sure to save the adult beverages for after the move—safety first! Moving companies typically charge outrageous rates on loading and unloading, especially if the transportation is included. Our recommendation is to facilitate as much as you can personally (Continued on pg. 15)


(Continued from pg. 14) to save money, but, if you need a quick hand with moving on or off campus, there is a new service called Campus Bellhops that could be an affordable alternative to wrangling friends to help in the heavy lifting. In the end, planning is everything. Planning and knowing all the important details pay off in the end. Packing always takes longer In the end, planning is everything. Planning and knowing

all the important details pay off in the end. Packing always takes longer than expected, so plan to spend more time than you could possibly imagine. As long as you keep up with the plan, moving should be relatively painless. Just make sure you clean up your old place after you are out because property managers hate ruined spaces and you’ll hate the service bill

Affordable Jewelry By C.C. Jaeger

o you know what’s in when it comes to summer fashion, but what good is that unless your know how to accessorize your new looks? As a shopaholic, I am obsessed with all things accessories, hats, bags, sunglasses, scarves, shoes and every woman’s favorite: to keep her jewelry box stocked with Yurman and Tiffany’s, but jewelry. I don’t know a single college student who has the dough luckily Baton Rouge has many places where you can find the perfect pieces for cheap. Department stores are vastly overlooked when it comes to jewelry. Macy’s and Dillard’s have weekly markdowns and a large range of styles. Sure sometimes you might have to dig, but finding that statement necklace you’ve been searching for amongst dated designs always makes you feel like a pirate that just found the Michael Kors of treasure. If you’re not too keen on digging through department stores but prefer to stay within the mall, hit up Fashionista. Not only do they have the newest styles of jewelry they also have bags and clothing. Fashionista is very affordable and super stylish. They have a wide (Continued on pg. 18)

range of styles and colors, so you will find the perfect addition for any outfit. When wanting something a bit more unique World Market is the place to go. The styles range from vintage to tribal and always guarantee a one of a kind look. They have everything from earrings to watches to rings to bangles. The best part of this worldly jewelry is that the prices remain low and affordable. If you can’t seem to pin point exactly what you want, head to the Mecca of all accessories: Charming Charlie’s. “All our jewelry is very affordable and of good quality. Our store has everything under the sun so you’re bound to find something you like,” said Sales Associate Jessica Hoffmann.

The store is organized by color and makes shopping super easy. Charming Charlie’s is huge and has every style of jewelry you can think of, whether you like to keep it classic and simple or love chunky statement pieces this place has it. The prices range from a pair of earrings for only four buck to convenient necklace/earring combo sets that can get as high as $30, but it still beats months of saving for those pearl studs that will eventually end up lost on the floor of Bogie’s. Take my advice and dive into the world of savings; keep your jewelry cheap and chic. So explore my budding shopaholics, and begin perfecting your outfits with the cute and affordable finishing touches.

3. Bold prints Animal prints have been all the rage this year and now they are prancing south to give your shoes a sexy strut. Wearing an animal print shoe can amp up a laid back style, and instantly make you look trendy and sophisticated. Also, choose a print and shape the outfit around it, mixing cheetah print with a snakeskin bag will detract from the sleekness of these prints. Floral, geometric patterns and even bird silhouettes have also been popping up on the runway and in stores. The key to this look as with any trend is moderation. Solid colors mixed with a snazzy print will always help you stand out, and even better the unique choice can be worn for all occasions. Another take on bold prints is patterned wedges. This gives you the pizzazz of a print with out taking over the entire shoe, giving you more outfit pairing options. So ladies pimp out you pumps this summer and add a little kick to your wardrobe.

pring break has come and gone and, unfortunately, we are back in the classroom. The good news is summer is right around the corner, and what better way to ring the best part of the year than learning what’s hot for this steamy season? Whether you are taking classes, got an internship or working, here are a few trends to study up on so you can look your best and maybe even find yourself a summer fling! 1. Neon A fun trend heating up this summer is bright, very bright. Get out your glow sticks and reminisce about the 90s rave craze. Many designers like Alexander Wang, Betsey Johnson and Marc Jacobs recently flaunted these bright color palettes on the runway during New York Fashion Week. While this look is super fun, don’t over do it. Shoot for some pops of color such as a handbag, shoes or jewelry. If you wear a neon shirt or dress try not to over accessorize and bring in other neutrals so you don’t overwhelm people with your electrifying new look. If you aren’t totally sold on bringing

everywhere in stores. Everything from shoes, dresses, skirts, shirts and pants have donned this lighter wash of color. The major color choices to work with are pinks, corals, mint, and sea foam. Colored jeans have been a hit all year and summer is no different. If you pair a white flowing top with a pair of cropped pastel jeans and some wedges you will be sure to draw some envious looks. Don’t be afraid to mix edgy and girly either. A pastel dress with a spiky belt could add some fun and flirty contrast (think Carrie from Sex in the City the movie).

(Continued from pg. 20) 4. Safari inspired By no means does this mean cargo pants are back in style, but pulling a little Aussie inspiration has been the muse to designers such as Gucci, Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger. Modern takes on safari jackets, shorts and skirts have been popping up this spring. This look is meant to be simple and comfortable, so try neutral pieces such as camel, beige, taupe and white. Animal and tribal prints also fit well with this trend, but make sure the large prints are flattering. Larger, flowy tops fit right in and will help you stay cool during Louisiana’s Africa-hot summers. Wooden jewelry, large sun hats and structured sandals, are little things you can do with this trend without worrying if you look like your embarking on a 2-year expedition. Boys, this trend works for you too and is everything you want in fashion: simple, neutral colors and comfortable, breathable fabrics are all it takes. Think of it as channeling your inner Indiana Jones—without the whip.

5. Mad Men Madness Ever since Mad Men entered the living rooms of millions, it’s amazing style has influenced fashionistas and designers alike. People can’t seem to get enough of its subtle sex appeal, and who wouldn’t want to look like Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe when they step out the door? The early 60s woman was never afraid to show off her curves and always looked prim, proper and put together. With hourglass silhouettes, longer hemlines, Jackie Kennedy sunglasses and full pouting lips, you can channel your inner Mad Men characters. An under played sexiness is the goal and once achieved you will feel confident, classy and elegant. For the men who are daring enough to jump in a fashion time machine, tailored suits and skinny ties will make the women swoon. When going for a more laid back look, think of the earlier James Bond styles, this mean polos and boat shoes but what guy wouldn’t want to look like a young Sean Connery.

Movies for those on a tight budget

Cinema City is the family friendly destination for film fun, and not too expensive TIM WORDEN Daily Titan

If you’re a typical college student on a budget like me, you will enjoy Cinema City Stadium Theatres, an independent movie theater in Anaheim Hills. The theater, owned by Starlight Cinemas, has a family-friendly

environment and small-town feel and most importantly, is the most affordable theater around (excluding the Brea Plaza 5 Cinema). Seeing a movie here does not feel like you are pinching your wallet, unlike other nearby theaters like AMC and Regal/Edwards. Student tickets are $8, but matinees before 6 p.m. are $6 and matinees before noon are $5. But here is the best part: showings before 6 p.m. Sundays and showings all day Monday and Tuesdays are only $5 as part of the theater’s “Super Value Days.” The theater is up-to-date with digital projections, so while being cheap, it is not a “cheap deal.” The theater was also ranked second place in the theater category in the Orange County Register’s 2012 “Best of Orange County” guide, released in September. Cinema City is located at 5635 E. La Palma Ave. in Anaheim Hills, just off the Imperial Boulevard exit of the 91 Freeway. At night, look for the purple neon lights. Restaurants nearby include In-

Goth: the new trend

Revival of gothic-inspired featuring inverted crosses, skulls fashion using dark lipstick, and spiked studs. Men’s online retail brand Acinverted crosses and skulls KYMBERLIE ESTRADA Daily Titan

Break out the crosses, pitchforks and broomsticks because Satanism has made its way into the fashion scene. With Halloween right around the corner, it only seems appropriate to meddle in this new trend. Pentagrams, inverted crosses and goth-themed clothing and accessories can be spotted among students on campus, religious or not. Though, this new occult style can often be misleading; you don’t have to worship Satan to welcome the darkside. Retailers such as Tripp NYC, Actual Pain and UNIF are the biggest brands introducing sinister styles. Los Angeles-based clothing brand UNIF, features a large collection of clothing that expresses the dark side with slogans like, “Go To Hell, For Heaven’s Sake,” or “Jesus Saves, I Spend.” Bigger retailers such as Forever 21 and H&M carry occult styles,

tual Pain showcases an assortment of black and white demonic graphic tees, tanks, crewnecks and hats. Among a few of Actual Pain’s graphics are sacrificial goats, beastly wolves and “zombified” versions of iconic celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Buddy Holly. Many young people are opt-

ing for this controversial fashion statement, complementing an occult graphic top with head-to-toe black, goth-like attire. Stock up on this latest trend during this Halloween season, before the carols, Christmas trees, and gleeful spirits invade the holidays. Soak up the horror and ghostly spirits, and dance with the devil by partaking in fashion’s most unholy union.

Take a walk with the dinosaurs in Anaheim ARJUN MALHOTRA For the Daily Titan

The Honda Center holds an annual event called “Walking with the Dinosaurs.” This exhilarating spectacle transports the audience back 200 million years into the Cretaceous Period and walks them through the Jurassic and Triassic by showing them the dinosaurs that existed within those periods. The show also relates informative and interesting facts about different types of dinosaurs. “Walking with the Dinosaurs” is truly a remarkable spectacle. The attendees not only experience the rare opportunity to learn about dinosaurs, but also have the opportunity to see dinosaurs walk right in front of them. The show stars a speaker who stands on the main stage and relates the events and dinosaurs that appear in that time period. The host is dressed in safari apparel and acts as a paleontologist

describing the attributes of the dinosaurs. The speaker also shares the stage with hundreds of different machine operated dinosaurs that are stunningly brought back to life. The speaker states the name of the dinosaur walking past him and adds what they ate, where they lived, their descendants and behavior. The mechanism by which the dinosaurs are brought before the audience and the way they behave on stage are truly astonishing. The smaller dinosaurs, such as the raptors, are puppets but the larger dinosaurs are machine operated. The bigger animals are animatronic and stabilized by a T-shaped plate situated between their legs. As the show progresses through different time periods, the dinosaurs that belonged to that specific time period are introduced, thereby giving immense credibility to the show. The stage also changes from vibrant fiery colors to dark green depending on the type of envi-

ronment the respective dinosaur preferred to reside in. The flying Pteranodon are portrayed among flowing lava and erupting volcanoes and when the herbivores arrive, the stage changes to hues of green. Overall, the show deserves a tremendous rating for its accuracy. The dinosaurs are all created according to their actual size. The dinosaurs are also described in great detail. That is, they are very accurately colored, painted and orchestrated. The company putting on the show put great detail into rendering the scars, bites and birthmarks that may be present on the respective bodies of the carnivores. The show is an astonishing spectacle worth every penny. Children may get frightened at first by the volumes of the dinosaur screeches and the gruesome fight scenes, but overall they will enjoy the majestic creatures, the information and the entertainment that this show features.

Cigars sweet as steak The first taste of a Swisher Sweets cigar proves to be a wonderful experience DAVID HOOD Daily Titan

The first pull of a cigar was as invigorating as a first kiss, like the first bite into a melting filet mignon, cooked to perfection. I had never smoked anything but fish before in my life and had rejected the notion of it longer than I could remember. But it’s my senior year and one night I thought, “what the hell, I’ll just go for it.” So I bought my first two-pack of Swisher Sweets at the 7/11 on Placentia Avenue, went to a park with my friends and lit up my first cigar. Without thinking about all dozen or so cancer opportunities I was about to open my body up to, I lit, pulled, and let the sweet and piquant smoke envelop my senses. It was wonderful. I guess the reason why I have never taken a drink or a smoke up until that point was because

I have an addictive personality. I don’t even have to try something before I’m addicted to it. Am I addicted to cigars? Probably not. But I like them. A lot. Inhaling a cigar is probably one of the most debilitating things the average person can do. So I’ve strayed away from cigarettes that and have just stuck with my Swishers. Still no alcohol and definitely not drugs. But that first puff of that delicious, warm tobacco smoke filling my mouth (and not my lungs) will be a treasured memory forever.

WHY

FAQs OFFICE? IS THERE AN OFF-CAMPUS

HOUSING The BYU Off-Campus Housing Office exists to help students living off campus through five primary goals:

• To promote a living environment that is conducive to moral, spiritual and academic performance. • To establish guidelines for the development and maintenance of living conditions for student needs. • To establish standards of fairness in studentlandlord rental matters. • To advise students and owners on rental problems and responsibilities. • To help BYU students find housing.

BYU Off-Campus Housing Office C-141 ASB 801 422-1513 byu.edu/offcampushousing

ABOUT OFF-CAMPUS

HOUSING Where should I live? It comes down to what you are looking for and what you are used to. Look at the pros and cons for each option, and decide what is important to you.

What is the advantage of having BYU contracted housing? Living conditions can greatly influence a student’s growth and performance. Because the university relies on the community to provide accommodations for most of its students, BYU has established the OffCampus Housing Office and a contracted housing program to cultivate that desired environment off-campus.

Who runs the BYU OffCampus Housing Office? There are four full-time staff members for more than 1,400 landlords under BYU contract.

When should I find housing?

Who should I talk to when I have a problem with my apartment?

You need to make a choice early enough to see what your options are. Many students begin looking as early as January or February for fall semester housing.

First, talk to your landlord. The Off-Campus Housing Office often gets complaints and discovers the landlord is not even aware of the problem.

What should I look for when I’m trying to find housing?

When should I go to the housing office about a problem?

Look at the building inside and out. Talk to other people who have lived there – find out the good and the bad. Talk to the management and see if you are going to be able to communicate with them.

What is BYU contracted housing? BYU established contracted housing to provide a supportive environment for the single, undergraduate student living off-campus. The university contracts with landlords to separate single men and women, to maintain BYU residential living standards, to keep facilities in good repair and to not abuse basic tenant rights.

When the landlord is not being responsive or communicating with you.

Where is the Off-Campus Housing Office located? C-141 ASB on the main floor in the C wing.

How do I get out of my contract? Your contract is a legal and binding document. The Student-Landlord Rental Agreement allows students to terminate their agreement for graduation and internships required for graduation. These special provisions are possible with a 120-day written notice given to the landlord.

Honor

Code The

doesn’t end at the edge

of campus By Mel Codner ollege is the time to get your own place, cook your own food and … follow the Honor Code? Students living in BYU contracted housing are sometimes surprised by the Honor Code and the rules that govern off-campus housing. This unique standard requires students to live by a higher law with visiting hours, moral conduct and gender-separated living standards. The Honor Code has always been part of off-campus housing included in the student’s rental agreement, and every BYU student signs it. Garry Briggs, manager of BYU Off-Campus Housing, said even UVU students living in BYU contracted housing must sign and follow the housing Honor Code. “We want BYU students off campus to be in a living environment that is conducive to moral, spiritual and academic growth,” Briggs said. Briggs found that students want to live in an environment where they do not have to worry about drugs and alcohol. They want to live with people who share their same values as well as the same challenges. Briggs said students’ number one struggle with the Honor Code is members of the opposite sex in the bedroom. This strict gender separation states members of the opposite sex are not permitted in the bedrooms or bathroom areas. Commonly

called the “chastity line,” some students may find the rule confining and irrelevant. Briggs said students who signed the Honor Code voluntarily did so and should be willing to live by it. “We need to try to honor and build our character,” Briggs said. He said students may be faced with a roommate or friend breaking the housing Honor Code. In that situation, Briggs said to first talk to the person in a respectful manner, letting them know you are concerned. If they continue to violate the Honor Code, Briggs said the student should contact the landlord. Todd Wight, a mathematics major from Orem, said he remembered having a roommate who didn’t keep the Honor Code. “It was just uncomfortable,” he said. Wight said the Honor Code is a conscious effort that at some point becomes who you are. He has since then had roommates who keep the Honor Code and make his home enjoyable. “It’s fun living with people who do the right thing,” he said. Former BYUSA Vice President Landon Hansen said the Honor Code comes down to respect for yourself and your roommates. “When people see you keeping the Honor Code, they respect you,” he said. Hansen said students can decide beforehand what they are going to do when faced with an Honor Code issue like visiting hours. “If you have decided, ‘I am going to follow that rule,’ then it’s a strengthening thing for yourself,” Hansen said. “If we can demonstrate that responsibility now, we can go out in the world and be a force for good.”

Advice from the BYU Off-Campus

Housing Office

W

hen it comes to living off campus the Off-Campus Housing Office knows the ins and outs. Garry Briggs, manager of the Off-Campus Housing Office, gives advice about aspects of living the college life in an off campus apartment.

BYU OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING OFFICE WORKS WITH ² 1,400 owners ² 22,316 off-campus rental spaces ² 14,000-16,000 BYU students who

require off-campus housing

Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments Act permits educational institutions to segregate students based on gender in contracted housing.

Contracts Knowing the contract can help prevent issues later. • Read the contract thoroughly • Understand the legal obligations • Ask for clarification • Check facility before you sign • Determine term of contract • Verify length of tenancy • Even if your waiver to live in non-contracted housing is approved, the university has no contract with that owner and will be unable to assist you with any contractual issues that may arise

Roommates The environment in your apartment will greatly influence your spiritual and academic growth. • Meet roommates prior to moving in • Listen to each other • Discuss apartment standards, cleaning chores, guest rules and appropriate consequences early on

Landlords Setting up open communication with your landlord can be a key to a successful relationship. • Ask questions about maintenance, payments and how to report concerns

• Be friendly and workable • The main communicator with the landlord should be the person who signed the contract

Check-In/ Check-Out forms Use these forms to describe damage in the unit. See page 61 for a copy of the form. Forms are also available from the Off-Campus Housing Office or at byu.edu/ offcampushousing. • Accept the unit in its current condition (“as is”) unless both student and landlord agree in writing to changes • Understand condition and cleaning of unit • Agreement signed by both the student and landlord • Remember tenant is bound by the contract

When Off-Campus Housing gets involved If there are issues with your living situation: • Report concerns in writing to the manager • Give sufficient time to resolve the situation If manager has failed to show reasonable effort to resolve situation: • Report the situation to the Off-Campus Housing Office • Manager and student will be asked to make a statement • Off-Campus Housing Office will facilitate a resolution or recommend parties to the Center for Conflict Resolution

Updating your personal

information online BYU requires all students to update their personal information every semester or term, including current address, email address and phone number. If the information is not updated or a waiver approved (see page 38), students cannot register for classes and will be charged a $150 non-compliance fee. Here are the ways to be compliant with BYU policies for multiple circumstances:

You live in contracted housing, but haven’t yet updated your personal information Click the “Update My Personal Information” link on MyBYU (my.byu.edu) and change or verify the information, then save each section. Remember to check the box “I have reviewed my contact information and affirm that it is correct.”

You’re married but haven’t notified BYU Go to the records office in B-150 ASB as soon as possible to fill out the appropriate paper work.

You’ve decided not to attend BYU this semester Click “Personal Information” on MyBYU, then check the box, “I will not be taking classes at BYU …. I understand that if I decide to take classes, I must update my contact information” and submit. There is an additional deferment form that must be filled out in the Registration Office in A-153 ASB. If you later decide to take classes (including Independent Study) you will need to confirm your personal information. If you are not living on campus or in BYU contracted housing, you will need to apply for a waiver.

You’re living at home Fill out a “Declaration of Living at Home Form” available on the Off-Campus Housing website and bring it into the Off-Campus Housing Office at C-141 ASB.

You’re attending classes away from Provo campus or have other special circumstances Complete and print an “Application for Waiver” available on the Off-Campus Housing website and turn it into the Off-Campus Housing Office in C-141 ASB.

Why do I have to live

in

BYU

contracted

housing?

T

o qualify as a BYU contracted residence, landlords and management companies must sign an agreement with BYU guaranteeing certain standards of living, allowing BYU to serve as an intermediary and use a standard BYU contract. While the requirement for students to live in BYU contracted housing may seem like an inconvenience, Pat Newman from the BYU Off-Campus Housing Office listed these four reasons BYU contracting is such an important issue.

Arbitration and mediation

Graduation clause

Rather than going to court over landlordtenant disagreements or unfulfilled contracts, BYU students living in BYU contracted housing can go through the Center for Conflict Resolution to resolve disputes.

Residents of BYU contracted housing are granted the graduation clause, which states they can be legally released from any housing contract or agreement 120 days before graduation or an internship required for graduation with a written notice.

Inspections

Breach of zoning

BYU contracted residences can be inspected to ensure standards of cleanliness and functionality.

All BYU contracted residences should be in full accordance with Provo City zoning laws and regulations for housing and safety codes, such as occupancy, pest control and natural disaster safety.

In short, BYU wants students housed in safe, sanitary, fair and affordable living situations. Newman says the only way for BYU to do that is to require certain living standards with BYU contracted landlords and owners.

CLEANER

spaces at some point during their college experience, it is likely students will live with strangers who have different opinions on cleanliness. Natalie Duerden, property manager at Alpine Court apartments said in an email some tenants like their entire apartment clean, some only care about their personal space and others don’t care if the apartment is clean at all. “It really gets under some students’ skin when a roommate doesn’t pull their own weight,” Duerden said. In view of this problem, the following is a list of four reasons to keep the apartment clean.

Good roommate relations Elizabeth Heywood, a senior studying American studies, said there is a lot more contention at cleaning checks if the apartment hasn’t been cleaned all month because one roommate doesn’t want to clean up the mess the other roommate has created. On the other hand, she feels kinder to roommates who do put in the extra effort to clean.

Health Evelia Amador, a cleaning specialist at Merry Maids, said her main reason for keeping an apartment clean is to keep herself and her roommates healthy. “A dirty apartment is just not a safe environment,” Amador said.

Cleaning check ease Tij VonNieda, a double major in speech pathology and Russian, said “It’s easier to do cleaning checks if you don’t have to do a suicide run the night before.” Amador recommended creating a list of goals to accomplish after work or school. “That way it’s kept up and it’s easier,” Amador said. “It’s more work if you don’t.

Contract insurance Amador said in her experience if you are renting an apartment and it is not kept clean, the manager will have to kick you out. Duerden said she has had to step in several times to enforce consequences for failing a cleaning inspection to ease the tension in the apartment, even though management didn’t require her to do so.

avoid Dishing about

DIRTY

dishes W

hether you live with strangers or friends, a lot of cleanliness problems start in the kitchen. People grow up with different expectations when it comes to the dishes – some are used to assigning a day where each person is in charge of the dishes; others come from homes where their parents did all the dishes. Whatever the case, nobody likes to be the one doing everyone else’s dishes. Find a dish-washing system that works best for your apartment, whether that’s a dish-duty schedule, only using paper goods or hand washing everything you use. If you can’t remember the last time you washed a dish, and don’t have a dish-duty schedule set up in your apartment, here are a few tips on how to shock your roommates and win friendship points: 1. Do your own dishes. 2. If you have guests over, do their dishes, too. 3. If you make a large meal with several pots, pans, plates and cutting boards, take care of washing those ASAP. 4. If you use the only pot or all four spoons your apartment owns, hand wash those right away. Don’t let them sit in the sink or wait for the dishwasher to be empty. 5. Lightly used dishes are OK to set in the sink if your dishwasher is full, but don’t let them pile up. 6. Really dirty dishes should be hand washed or rinsed right after you use them. Letting food cake on for days makes them much harder to wash later or to run through the dishwasher. 7. When the dishwasher is full of clean dishes, empty it. And fill it with whatever dirty dishes you can.

Resolving problems THROUGH the center

for Conflict

Resolution E By Cari Thomas

ach year, hundreds of BYU students seek the help of the BYU Center for Conflict Resolution. The center assists in resolving everything from landlord disagreements and roommate problems to disputes with off-campus businesses. The center addresses any conflict that involves a BYU student. It encourages and assists students in communicating with the offender before proceeding to the legally binding steps of arbitration or court. Sara Pedersen, who has graduated from BYU, contacted the BYU Center for Conflict Resolution with a problem. “The management company had violated my roommate’s contract and moved her into our apartment, which led to contention between all of us in the apartment,” Pedersen said. “We contacted the BYU Center for Conflict Resolution and they were able to help us confront the management company as well

as settle things in our apartment. When we first tried to talk to the management, we were walked over. But with BYU’s help, they spoke with us and resolved our problem.” Pedersen said she was impressed with the timeliness and respect she and her roommate were given by the center and the ability it gave them to not be victims. In keeping with the mission of BYU, the center encourages everyone involved to dispute conflicts in a peaceful manner. To assist with this, the center first offers scriptural guidance and encourages open communication to assist in dealing with conflict resolution, which is available at their office in 4412 WSC and at ccr.byu.edu. If informal communication produces no resolution, the parties can proceed to a mediation process where negotiations take place through the assistance of a neutral third party. This process allows the parties to reach their own solution to a problem and determine what is an acceptable settlement. John Pace, manager of the Center for Conflict Resolution, said many conflicts can be resolved through mediation without involving the legal system. Of the 20-30 cases his office receives each month, 80 percent are resolved before they reach arbitration. When mediation does not work, the parties proceed to private judicial arbitration. As part of the housing agreement made between BYU students and landlords, both parties agree to settle disputes through arbi-

tration when mediation does not work. Through a charter from the government, BYU is able to act as a private court, without the meetings and papers required by formal courts, allowing students to participate in arbitration. In the arbitration process, the parties may represent themselves or have legal representation. They present 20-minute testimonies to a panel of three people: one law faculty, one student and one landlord. When these cases go to arbitration, the parties give jurisdiction and control of their dispute to the arbitration board. The decision made by the board is final and legally binding. These decisions can be petitioned for modification or reviewed by a state court if a mistake was made, but the grounds for such rarely exist. If there are any issues between roommates that involve a violation of the BYU Honor Code, the Honor Code Office deals with those issues. The Center for Conflict Resolution was formed January 2003 to remove the case load from the Off-Campus Housing Office, which handled housing conflicts. Prior to the center’s formation, there was no source of assistance for students who had conflicts with businesses and needed legal advisement. The university formed the BYU Center for Conflict Resolution to help students with these disagreements.

THE WAIVER A

For WHEN circumstances

change

ll single BYU undergraduate students are required to live in BYU contracted housing. However, there are some circumstances that prevent students from residing in housing that has been contracted by BYU. These circumstances can include: • Living at home • Completing an out-of-state internship • Unusual hardship It is possible to waive the university requirement by submitting the proper waiver form. There is no guarantee a student will be granted permission. It is essential students submit their waiver before moving into a new location. The “Declaration of Living with Family” form is for students planning to live at home or with married family members while attending BYU. This form is turned in to the Off-Campus Housing Office, C-141 ASB. The form can be found on the Off-Campus Housing website, byu.edu/offcampushousing. A parent or eligible family member must sign the form before it is submitted. The “Waiver from University Housing

Policy Form” is the form for all other circumstances, including living with unmarried siblings. This general waiver form is also found on the Off-Campus Housing website. Complete the form and the “Residential Living Standards Agreement Form” with the required signatures, describing in detail the special circumstance, then turn the information in to the Off-Campus Housing Office. The system checks applicants’ residential address for further consideration of the waiver. If students want to inquire about a waiver before they fill it out, they can do so on the Off-Campus Housing website by completing a Waiver Inquiry Form. It is the student’s responsibility to update personal information by going to my.byu.edu and clicking on “Update My Personal Information” and then clicking the box: “I have reviewed my contact information and affirm that it is correct.” If a student continues to receive notices regarding their residential address after following one of the above procedures, they should contact Off-Campus Housing at 801-422-1513 or och@byu.edu.

THE SENSE OF COMPREHENDING

CENTS By Nicole Sofe

1425 N. University Avenue, Provo, UT 84604 801-342-4999

Contrary to popular belief, a budget is not the enemy. “Budgets are really more about behavior control than financial control,” said Craig Israelsen, associate professor in the School of Family Life. Here are six simple suggestions for students to create and adhere to a budget: A budget should be written at the beginning of the month “That will clear up the misconception that a budget is some sort of diary that we write down after the fact,” Israelsen said. Some students commonly think they only need to record what they spend. Instead, create it ahead of time, before the money is spent. Determine how much you have to work with and how it should be allocated It is important that students establish how

to use their funds before the month begins. Many may struggle to know how much to allocate to each category. Israelsen suggests the first month be an exploratory month, to closely watch how much they spend. “Start with the things that you know, your housing expenses, your transportation expenses,” said Bryan Sudweeks, associate professor of business management and personal finance. “With budgeting it’s not the big things that get you, it’s the little things.” It is important for married couples to work together to make these financial decisions. “Talk about things one at a time, but talk about them; open your mouth,” said April Lindgren, a business management major. Record expenditures and pay yourself It is important for students to record the money that goes into and out of their account. When a category hits zero dollars, it is time to stop spending or borrow from another category. “When money is spent using a credit card, record it as though it is a check,” Israelsen said. “That is the really big secret.” A key to money management is to put a portion of earned income into a savings account. Israelsen suggests students include savings as expenditure in the budget to guarantee that they save. Learn self-control “We should honor a HALT principle,” Israelsen said. “Don’t spend money if we’re

‘Hungry’, ‘Angry’, ‘Lonely’ or ‘Tired.’ Those are all conditions that lead to bad decisions.” Israelsen used a runner as an example. A student will not go running if they have already used up all of their energy that day. Similarly, don’t spend money you don’t have. “You cannot buy everything,” Sudweeks said. “You cannot buy your way into financial security.” Put it where you can see it When a budget is in plain sight, it will more likely be followed. It can be evaluated and redrawn as appropriate at the end of the period. “Use the things that you use all the time,” Lindgren said. “Use your cell phone, use your Gmail calendar. When I set the goal, I also set reminders for myself.” Pay tithing “Either you have to pay tithing, or you have to get fire-proof clothing,” Israelsen said. The Lord has a special package of blessings for the starving student who pays their tithes, he said. Enjoy it Budgeting does not have to be a chore. Just as people like to plan vacations, Israelsen suggests students apply the same mindset to budgeting and learn to enjoy it. “When you’re trying to economize, you will end up making your own fun,” he said.

behavioral

contract By Logan Bradford

A

lot of students have experienced it, but most do nothing about it. Some think the only solution to roommates who are not keeping the rules is to report them to the BYU Honor Code Office, but there is another option. When there are concerns, students can go to their managers and see if they are able to issue a behavioral contract, which acts as a warning to tenants when apartment residents are not living by the residential living standards, said Off-Campus Housing Manager Garry Briggs. The manager or landlord then decides whether to issue the behavioral contract. “It gives off-campus landlords a vehicle to discipline,” Briggs said. “It’s a tool for landlords to use when good people make mistakes, and it gives them a second chance.” Managers can access the contracts at the offcampus housing website, byu.edu/offcampushousing, where they can print and fill out the contract. The contract includes regulations from their original rental contract and the residential living standards in the Honor Code. The manager can also include additional situation-specific requirements. This allows flexibility between the property owner and tenant, as well as deciding the conditions of the behavioral contract. Lisa Isengarber, leasing manager at The Branbury, said the behavioral contracts strengthen the Honor Code. “[They] just reemphasize what they signed in the contract,” she said. “We use a lot of the same clauses from the contract. It clarifies what they should already know.” Briggs highlighted the idea of peer pressure in situations, as well as the merciful nature of the behavior contracts. “We recognize with peer pressure, to be part of the group, you feel you have to go along with it,” he said, referring to people breaking parts of the Honor Code as a group. He said sometimes the behavioral contracts can include things not covered in the Honor Code but are important for comfortable living for roommates and neighbors. This gives managers the opportunity to address issues like behavioral and psychological disorders that make living with a specific person more difficult than is reasonable. Becky Glosenger, on-site manager at King Henry Apartments, said they use behavioral contracts more in minor violations of the Honor Code, such as continual problems with visiting hours or instances involving roommate issues or cleanliness. She said they worked well and tenants realized the importance of living by their contract once they signed a behavioral contract. “It’s been pretty favorable,” she said. “They understand the consequences. With the few we do have, it’s worked out well.”

FINDING YOUR

Family

Housing By Rachel Steffensen

B

etween school and working out wedding details, a couple must find a place that will become a happy home for the start of their new life together. When searching for off-campus housing there are few things couples should know. There is not a specific process to go through to find family housing, because graduate and married students can live wherever they want. Garry Briggs, from the BYU Off-Campus Housing Office, said it is important for newlyweds to remember they need to go to the Records Office, at B-150 ASB, and change their marital status. This simple step will

54

ensure the university understands you are no longer a single student obligated to abide by university housing requirements. If undergraduate students fail to change their marital status, they may receive non-compliance fees. Off-campus family housing can be difficult to find in the Provo and Orem area. Briggs said the peak times of transition are the end of winter semester and the end of August, before fall semester starts. Students may have a better chance of obtaining apartments during these times. Students may have to look in neighboring cities for housing because of the high demand in the Provo area. If they expand their search to Lindon, American Fork or Springville, students may find better rates. Of course, transportation is necessary for commuting. The Off-Campus Housing Office has a listing service especially for family and graduate students, which provides a list of openings submitted from around the valley. In off-campus, non-contracted housing, the university has no contract and therefore no requirements, so Briggs cautioned, “Buyers beware.” A couple should have a clear understanding of the contract requirements and know exactly what they are signing, because it may be different from the standards they are used to in contracted single housing. Couples who are getting married in the

middle of the semester may go online or into the Off-Campus Housing Office to request a waiver from contracted housing while they are single. An engaged couple may request the waiver and continue to look for housing. One can live in the apartment they have chosen, while the other finds another place for the short time until they get married. This helps the couple avoid locking into a yearlong contract for single students and gives them the opportunity to find and secure their future home early. Students who have already gone through the process suggest couples start looking for housing early. “I know you can’t really plan for those things, but if there’s is a good chance that you’re going to need it, just go look,” said Sarah Horne. It’s also important to prioritize what you want in housing, because chances are you won’t be able to find everything for the price you can afford. “Know that family housing is more expensive, so don’t be surprised,” said Janelle Payne. She said to rate your priorities so you can focus your search according to the number of bedrooms, the location or the size of the kitchen. Figure out what is important to you as a couple and then use listings to narrow your search.

Residents of Foreign Language Housing share meals together five nights a week. In addition to the meals, FLSR offers a convenient location to live. Photos by Chris Bunker

ime spent in Foreign Language Housing (FLSR) has played a large role in improving her language skills, said Lisa Nielson, a humanities major. “I think this is the best immersion program you can experience, short of going to the actual country,” Nielson said. The FLSR consists of 25 apartments separated into nine different languages – Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Each language is offered to both men and women, depending on student demand. Nielson spent part of her childhood in Japan and took Japanese language classes throughout high school. Nielson said she has loved living in the Japanese house. The environment is what keeps her there, she said. One native speaker lives in each apartment and is available at least two hours a day to help students learn and speak the language. Nielson said this is one of the advantages of living in Foreign Language Student Residence because students can get “instant feedback” on their language skills or questions. According to Nielson, the Foreign Language Housing draws in high-caliber students who respect different cultures and take their studies seriously. “I love the appreciation and respect for cultures that students have here,” she said. Hans-Wilhelm Kelling, director of the

FLSR Program, described the housing as an important language-learning environment. “It is a marvelous opportunity to improve language and cultural awareness,” he said. Foreign language student residents are required to meet for dinner Sunday through Thursday, typically between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Kelling described these dinners as “social gatherings” where students can talk, eat and interact with other students, giving them a chance to improve their language skills through casual conversation while learning about the culture and dinner etiquette. Rebekka Schenk, a visual arts major, lives in German housing and is a native speaker from Salzburg, Austria. She said the daily dinners have been a great social experience. “Not only has it helped me to get to know the other students in the German house, by cooking together with them and eating with them for dinner, but I have also established a healthy habit of eating well-rounded meals on a regular basis,” Schenk said. To qualify to live in the FLSR, students must complete a minimum language requirement. Refer to byu.edu/housing/ oncampushousing to find out more about the foreign language housing program. Students who fit the requirements and are interested in living in the Foreign Language Student Residence can apply online through My Housing Account via MyBYU. Housing Guide 2012

Completing a Check-in/Check-out form helps you and your landlord have an accurate record of your apartment's condition

T

he last thing you want to hear is that your landlord charged you for pre-existing damages. Completing the Check-in/Checkout Evaluation can ensure you won’t owe your landlord any more money than you legally owe. The form details all pre-existing conditions in your unit to protect against additional maintenance charges. Consider these items when moving into a rental property: • Complete the form on the next page. The free form is also available at the Off-Campus Housing Office (C-141 ASB) and their website (byu.edu/offcampushousing). • The form includes space to list pre-existing damages. If you list problems with the unit when you move in, you prevent being held responsible for those same problems when you move out. • After completing the form, sign it and have the landlord or manager sign it. Before signing, explain what you listed and why. If possible, the landlord should be present when the inspection is completed. • Before the rental agreement is signed, both parties should agree on the condition and cleaning of the unit. • Keep one copy of the form and deliver another to the landlord.

CIRCLE K POLAR POP eat. best bang for your buck

S E C O N D prime time pizza brewe-ha’s THIRD

Lee Strubinger

daily vidette staff writer

College is a time when everyone’s dollar needs to go a little farther than it did back in high school. Students are constantly looking for the best deal around campus, and it is no surprise which three businesses were chosen as the best bang for your buck in the Twin Cities. It was a close fought battle, with each business closing in on the top spot for the best deal on campus. Coming in at number three, a white building that faces the busy Linden St. and sells a burger basket with fries for only $4.50, was Brewe-Ha’s. The burger basket has always been around at Brewe-Ha’s since it first opened. “It is a great place for college kids to come and get a beer and a burger for under $5,” Melissa Moorman, manager at Brewe-Ha’s, said. Rolling into the second place spot was Prime Time Pizza’s $4.99 cheese pizza. Patrons must order this large pizza before 9 p.m. to get the pizza at this price. Prime Time also offers pizza slices at only $1.50 for walk-ins. Ultimately, there must be a winner, and the first place spot goes to a convenience store on the corner of Main and Locust, close enough to campus for a quick trip. The Circle K offers a $.75 Polar Pop, which is a steal for college students. Circle K sells Pepsi and Coca-Cola products, as well as noncarbonated products. “We offer any size drinks for only $.69, before tax,” Maria Mathine, assistant manager at Circle K, said.

EINSTEIN BROS. BAGELS eat. best breakfast food

S E C O N D mcdonald’s wild berries THIRD

Drew Zimmerman

daily vidette senior staff

Einstein Bros. Bagels was voted as having the best breakfast food in the Best of Bloomington-Normal 2012 results, surpassing McDonalds, which received the honor last year. “We offer freshly baked bagels, healthy fresh-prepared sandwiches, and high-end specialty coffees in an environment that is fun, fast, and friendly,” Brian Unger, chief restaurant officer of Einstein, said. “We have the unique capability, through our outstanding operations teams, to provide the breakfast consumer with the fresh and healthy menu items they really want without having to sacrifice their time standing and waiting in a bakery café or in a long line in a coffee shop,” he added. On a recent visit, Unger also complemented the ISU campus location for the quality of their people as well as their execution. McDonald’s was bumped to second place in this year’s vote, followed by Wild Berries restaurant. Tina Colandria, manager of Wild Berries in Normal, attributed a family atmosphere to the restaurant’s success. “We have a good atmosphere, and since students are away from home, I think they feel that they are more at home when they walk in,” Colandria said. Wild Berries is a family-owned business, the staff is very closeknit, and each manager at Wild Berries is also a server, which increases productivity within the crew. “We don’t expect anyone to do anything we wouldn’t do ourselves,” Colandria added.

CHIPOTLE eat. best burrito

One thing college students take very serious is their taste for a good burrito. The Daily Vidette Best Of survey took this into account to find the best burrito in the Bloomington-Normal area. Nothing compares to a good burrito filled with the freshest ingredients. Sliding in at number three was Moe’s Southwest Grill. Located in the Constitution Trail Centre, Moe’s has a feel-good vibe with loud music and look-alike posters on the wall of famous celebrities. “We have a lot of different ingredients compared to some other people out there, and 100 percent concentrated on our customer service,” Stephen Agge, general manager at Moe’s Southwest Grill, said. “A lot of our food is really healthy for you.” The second place spot went to Los Potrillos, the authentic Mexican restaurant located off of Landmark Dr. in Normal. “Our main focus is food integrity,” Alex Garza, manager at Chipotle in Normal, said. “Every single day [our food] is prepped from scratch. Everything is naturally raised, we don’t have antibiotics in our meats, and the animals are running naturally.” The best burrito in town is a high honor, especially on a college campus. Eat up, ISU.

BIAGGI’S RISTOR A NTE eat. best date restaurant

S E C O N D medici flat top grill THIRD

Alyssa Siegele

daily vidette editor in chief

Walk into the Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano with your date and you’ll be greeted with a helpful, bright hostess and served by an attentive expert on the menu. ISU students, faculty, and staff voted this Italian restaurant as the best place to take a date in Bloomington-Normal, and it’s easy to see how the atmosphere can make the date a memorable one. “It has a lot to do with ambiance — making sure we have the right decor, the right lighting, the right music,” David LeGrand, managing partner at Biaggi’s, said. “We pay attention to a lot of the little details, like making sure the facility is in great repair.” For date-goers, the food is just as important as the atmosphere, and Biaggi’s delivers. “We have a chef-driven kitchen ... and all of our sauces and meals are made fresh in-house … We don’t buy prepackaged anything besides some deserts. We have the ability to create a lot of cool dishes like our stuffed pork,” LeGrand explained. A complete date at Biaggi’s might entail sharing one of the 10 appetizers, enjoying a freshly made entrée and paired wine, and topping off the meal with a desert. “My recommendation is the tiramasu,” LeGrand said. “We also have a new skillet cookie; it’s a Nutella skillet cookie and its delicious. We also make a new white chocolate bread pudding that is by far one of the favorites.” Second to Biaggi’s, Medici in Normal proved an excellent date spot for students unable to travel far from campus. The restaurant is located in the heart of Uptown Normal and features a unique menu, tasty drinks, savory deserts, and an impressive structure — a tree in the center.

daily vidette senior staff

The students have spoken and have claimed Buffalo Wild Wings as the number one spot to chow down on wings, with Mugsy’s Pub taking second place, and Hooters coming up in third. For seven years running, Buffalo Wild Wings has taken the top honor and Cassie Vogelsang, general manager, attributed its success to a few factors. “We try to personalize a customer’s experience here by putting on local games or local favorites and also giving them a personalized experience when they dine in. We tell our waitresses to not be ‘order takers’ but have conversations with the customers,” Vogelsang said. Of the three establishments, Mugsy’s is closer to ISU’s campus but, according to Vogelsang, the future looks bright for Buffalo Wild Wings. “I can’t say too much on a new location while the details are being worked out, but I can say the students will be pleasantly happy,” Vogelsang explained. In the meantime, Mugsy’s offers a short distance, as well as delivery, for those who can’t make it to Buffalo Wild Wings or Hooters. “I would put our wings up against anyone else. We have a good product we are proud of and we’re glad the students have responded so well,” Don Jones, general manager of Mugsy’s, said. Going to Mugsy’s is unique in that it is not a national chain. Mugsy’s has been serving Bloomington-Normal for 22 years and has gained a well-rounded customer base. “If a person comes in any time of the day they’ll see students from both schools, regulars who come in a couple times a week, and people from across Bloomington-Normal,” Jones said.

FIREHOUSE PIZZA

Firehouse Pizza in Uptown Normal earned first place pizza in Bloomington-Normal by the ISU community vote. “We try to do really really, really good pizza. We try to use the freshest products, keep the price low, and we try to make sure we have good music in here and great, great, great craft beer,” Zach Etscheid, manager of Firehouse, said. Firehouse not only serves recognition-earning pizza, but is also a bar that has recently brought in more independent breweries and draft beers. When it first opened, Firehouse Pizza was one of the only bars in the area that brought in bands playing original music. Most other bars only allowed cover bands to play. Firehouse caters to indie rock, punk rock, country, hip-hop, and other genres. It generally welcomes any genre, as long as the music is original. Live music comes in at least twice a week, and Firehouse has been busy during the nights it puts on live music. It offers drink specials during performances, which also helps bring in patrons. “We’ve got a really great reputation with touring bands and with local bands and that’s nice, so we get to put all kinds of shows on here way cheaper than they’d be in Chicago,” Etscheid said. Firehouse Pizza also delivers and offers special deals during lunch and on nights with live music. Patrons do not have to be 21 to attend a show. Those of age will receive a wrist band in order to drink during a show.

EMACK & BOLIO’S eat. best ice cream

Jennifer Novoseletsky

daily vidette staff writer

Students voted Emack & Bolio’s as the best place to get ice cream in the Best of Bloomington-Normal 2012 survey. Cold Stone Creamery followed in second place, and Chill Out followed in third. Chill Out offers a self-serve frozen yogurt aspect, while Emack & Bolio’s mainly concentrates on standard ice cream. “We have over 60 flavors of ice cream but have about 25 available at a time,” Barbie Fuller, Emack and Bolio’s owner, explained. “We mainly focus on ice cream, however we do serve coffee and espresso drinks. We also have a new Ice Cream Pizza.” Both Fuller and Joe Ritacco, Chill Out owner, focus on making customers satisfied. People are attracted to the atmosphere, and that is a top priority, Ritacco explained. “[People] enjoy getting what they want exactly how they want it,” he added. Emack & Bolio’s and Chill Out are located in Uptown Normal near other local businesses, the Constitution Trail, ISU, and a museum, Fuller explained. Emack & Bolio’s celebrated their fifth anniversary last year by changing their look inside, and this year they are planning on adding a new courtyard to keep the customers interested, Fuller said. Chill Out, on the other hand, opened not even a year ago on July 4, 2011, and has risen in popularity. Since opening, their Facebook group reached 2,000 followers, Ritacco said. “[It is] something different, but fun and exciting,” Ritacco explained. “I’m very, very proud.”

Jenny Jackowski

daily vidette reporter

China Star claimed a first place title for best Asian cuisine this year by ISU’s vote. China Star serves familiar and well-loved Chinese dishes, either in their restaurant or by delivery, and caters to the individual tastes of customers when preparing entres. Kobe Steak House of Japan, located in Bloomington, took second place with their hibachi grill and sushi menu. “We’re a little different than most restaurants. We actually cook on a hibachi grill side … [which is] definitely a different atmosphere than your average restaurant that you go to,” Brian Martin, manager of Kobe, said. Kobe provides great service, great atmosphere, and fresh food for their patrons. The experience of eating at a hibachi grill table is completely unique to Japanese cuisine. Customers sit at a grill table, possibly with people they did not come in with. A trained chef prepares food right in front of them with a style that is just as much entertainment as it is cooking. The form of cooking goes along with Kobe’s motto, “A taste that you can see.” Kobe has four hibachi chefs, each with at least five years of experience, in that specific style of cooking. Each chef has a similar cooking style but their shows and tricks are unique. They also use different sets of knives. “My favorite part [about the restaurant] is when the customer smiles and says they had a great time when they leave,” Martin said.

THE COFFEE HOUND eat.

best local coffee shop

S E C O N D fusion brew coffeehouse & deli THIRD

Douglas Bridges-O’Connor daily vidette senior staff

One day, mathematicians will find a correlation between college courses and coffee consumption. Until then, students will continue to start their mornings, afternoons, and late night study sessions with steaming cups of java. While coffeehouse chain staples like Starbucks and Gloria Jeans can be found in Bloomington-Normal, ISU students instead prefer to grab a cup at locally-owned establishments. Voters chose The Coffee Hound, Fusion Brew, and The Coffeehouse & Deli as the first, second, and third best local coffee shops, respectively. “We’re celebrating our tenth year in business and our fifth year with the Normal location and this [Best Of ranking] is just another reason for us to celebrate,” April Fritzen, Coffee Hound owner, said. According to Fritzen, what sets Coffee Hound apart from other local coffeehouses is attention to detail and emphasis on the quality of their coffee. “We use locally roasted coffee because we’re interested in our sustainability and the environment. We’re also very focused on our coffee. We make other things from scratch, but those are to bring the focus back on the coffee,” Fritzen added. Sarah Hovar, Fusion Brew manager, believes the quality of coffee and customer service led to her shop taking second place. “It’s definitely an honor to be voted second. It’s nice to know that we and all of our hard work are appreciated,” Hovar said.

Renee Changnon

daily vidette features editor

The late night hunger pangs kick in for several students as the bars close and the parties end. For students wanting to eat something other than the frozen pizza they might forget is cooking in the oven, there are a few places ISU students can dial to hit the spot. For the fourth year in a row, D.P. Dough has earned the title of the best drunk food by the ISU student body. This popular calzone restaurant and late night delivery place have earned the honor since opening their doors four years ago and according to Ryan Fiala, owner of D.P. Dough, they strive each year to do the same. “To be voted Best Of every year that we’ve been open is a huge honor, it means that we’re actually doing our jobs well and basically doing what we set out to do,” Fiala said. While Fiala feels that D.P. Dough is popular as a drunken feast, he strongly feels it’s delicious in a sober state of mind as well. Another reason D.P. Dough has such a strong following may be due to the young group preparing the cheesy treats for the college crowd they aim to please. “We live for the college student. I was a college student for seven years, I still consider myself student emeritus, like I never graduated,” Fiala said. “Our staff is mostly ISU students, a few recent graduates who have been with us when they were students, and so whether it’s me pretending I’m still young or all those guys, I have always felt people like to be served by people like them.” If students are not in the mood for D.P. Dough, they may turn to the 2012 runner ups, Gumby’s Pizza and Prime Time Pizza.

Jimmy John’s freaky fast service is again the top choice among ISU students when looking for a delicious sandwich. Following the gourmet subs are Potbelly Sandwich Works in second and McAlister’s Deli in third. Mary Strack, owner of Jimmy John’s in Bloomington-Normal and Champaign, took it as a compliment that ISU students have made the restaurant so successful. “I take is as a great compliment to our sandwiches, but also to the employees and managers … Our employees have to be outgoing, upbeat, and give good customer service,” Strack said. According to Jimmy John’s data, ISU ranks very high for sandwich consumption per capita, with ISU in the top 10 to 15 consumer bases nationwide, Strack added. It is the combination of those three things, Strack believes, that has helped Jimmy John’s become the best sandwich in the Bloomington-Normal area. According to Dawn Wood, Potbelly’s general manager, they have fallen second to Jimmy John’s each year since 2006. “I’m not sure how [getting second place] happened, but in 2005 we actually won,” Wood explained. One thing Potbelly’s has going for them, Wood added, is striving to stay local and not appear to be a national chain. “When a person walks into a Potbelly’s they’ll notice it is unique to the neighborhood it is located in. Here, you’ll see a lot of ISU and Wesleyan gear on the walls in support of local schools,” Wood said. 12

Meatheads is located on Main Street in Normal, and has been in operation since August 2011. “We work pretty hard to have a good product,” Joe Turner, assistant manager of Meatheads, explained. “We use quality ingredients, [nothing] frozen; fresh produce we get in about three times a week.” Turner said that although the Normal location of Meatheads is less than a year old, the restaurant already has an established name, due to the Meatheads location in Bloomington. “We’ve started here [in Bloomington-Normal] and are expanding. We plan to open five more stores this year,” Turner explained. He also said that having the campus so close is very good for business. “It’s helpful to have the campus population right here,” he said. “I think we’re doing pretty well with the students, [but] we’re definitely trying to get more of the Normal community and families involved as well.” Turner said Meatheads offers many promotions for the Normal area, including coupons and discounts for local students and sports teams. Second place for best burger went to Brewe-Ha’s and third place went to Pub II, both located at the corner of College Avenue and Linden Street. “I think it’s an honor,” Terry Stralow, co-owner of Pub II, said. “We love being part of the ISU campus.”

CHASERS

Illinois State students recognized Chasers as the best Bloomington bar for the second straight year. Ron Nurceski, owner of Chasers, partially attributes the success of his bar to the knowledgable staff, drink specials, top of the line music, large dance floor, and being the only bar in central Illinois with a live video DJ. Chasers tries to bring in DJs from popular stations in the Chicago area since a lot of customers are students from Chicago, Nurceski said. “We’re just a fun place to be,” he added. Also among the best Bloomington bars were Six Strings, which placed second in the survey, and Mulligans, which placed third. Both of these bars failed to make the top three in last year’s vote. Taylor Lawless, manger of Mulligans, says the tradition of their long islands plays a role in the bar’s success. “Customers will come in who haven’t been here in over 10 years because they remember our long islands as well as the atmosphere of Mulligans,” Lawless said. “We have a loyal customer base and it’s nice to see familiar faces,” she added. Mulligans has also tried to be active in the community by giving donations and also by being affiliated with fraternities and sororities. Six Strings and Mulligans beat out Daddios and Fat Jack’s for the second and third place positions this year. Chasers asks for no cover charge for ISU students before midnight and has many drink specials, including $3 top shelf drinks on Saturdays.

The ISU community voted Pub II the best Normal Bar. Pub II has been in operation since 1974 and is situated on the corner of Linden Street and College Avenue in Normal. Terry Stralow, co-owner of Pub II, said he is happy the bar has been voted first place. Stralow said Pub II has a lot to offer the Normal community, and particularly ISU students. “I would like to think [we have] food and drink at a reasonable price,” he explained. “We have a patio, which is very popular when the weather is good. We show most sporting events.” Maggie Miley’s, located on East Beaufort in Uptown Normal, received second place, while Brewe-Ha’s, also located on the corner of Linden Street and College Avenue, took third. Maggie Miley’s has been in business since November 2004. “We try to cater to everybody,” Peter Connolly, general manager of Maggie Miley’s, explained. “As long as you’ve got shoes on your feet and a shirt on your back, you’re welcome — family, business people, students alike.” Connolly said receiving second place for Best Normal Bar is a great accomplishment. “We got [first] a few years back, which is great, but the fact that we got number two means people still enjoy it a lot, which means hopefully we’re going in the right direction,” he said. He said he thinks the atmosphere of Maggie Miley’s draws students to the bar. 14

As the weekend approaches, the liquor stores of BloomingtonNormal become hot spots for students eager to kick off their weekend festivities with friends and their favorite drinks. With several options to choose from, ISU students voted 707 Liquors as the best liquor store on campus for the Best Of survey. Second place went to University Liquors and third place to Budget Liquors. Sid Sidhu, owner of 707 Liquors, said one of the keys to continued success as a campus liquor store is listening to the requests of the students themselves. “A lot of these students are from up north, and if they have a product there which is not available in Central Illinois … I’ll jot it down and we’ll do some research to get that product in the store,” Sidhu said. He added that providing quality service is about providing more than just a wide variety of drinks. “It’s a whole package that you have to think about … the day you become lazy in retail — that’s when things can fall apart,” Sidhu said. “Keeping up with new products … and advertising the right product at the right time, these are the basic, key things.” Chris Cutler, owner of Budget Liquors, said that while college students tend to be a trendier demographic in terms of their selection, they are no different from the average consumer in what they expect from a liquor store. “They’re looking for value, a convenient location, and a higher degree of customer service,” Cutler said.

The Daily Vidette’s Best Of survey named Magic Bus as the best late night transportation, followed by Checker Cab and Bob’s Blue Nite Limo. ISU students voted these three companies the best in the Bloomington-Normal area from a list of several competing companies. Lee Euitsey, owner of Magic Bus, was thrilled to hear the results. “I have been doing this for four years and my route goes from all over ISU’s campus to downtown,” Euitsey said. “Mulligan’s and Elroy’s are the most popular stops for drop offs, and Chasers is the most popular for pick ups,” he added. The Magic Bus is fun and convenient for students because the busses allow large groups to travel together to and from downtown Bloomington. “The students seem to enjoy the music and lights on our busses and we always play the Bulls theme song at the start of every night,” Euitsey said. Checker Cab was also recognized by ISU students as a great form of late night transportation. Checker Cab followed the Magic Bus in the second place slot. Aaron Halliday, owner of Checker Cab, has owned the company for six years and was also pleased to hear about the results of the survey. “We work from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. taking ISU students to and from downtown Normal,” Halliday said. “We also provide transportation for house parties and other special events,” he added. To book the Magic Bus for your weekend event, call (309) 8384933, or (309) 828-0123 for the Checker Cab.

After hours of studying, sometimes watching TV just isn’t enough. Luckily, Bloomington-Normal offers many different live entertainment alternatives. Three venues were especially popular: US Cellular Coliseum, Castle Theatre, and Laugh Comedy Club. All three of these venues provide unique experiences for students. Jenna Wilson, US Cellular Coliseum marketing executive, explained how they try to choose artists that appeal to the student population. “We are really excited to receive this award for the second year in a row. We strive to always bring different genres of music to our building and be able to provide a great entertainment area for our college students. We are always looking forward to more great shows in the future,” Wilson said. Rory O’Connor, co-owner of Castle Theatre, said since the venue opened a year and a half ago he has been working to establish it as staple of the community. “We certainly do value students coming out to our venue. We appreciate the support of the student body and hope you guys keep coming out,” O’Connor said. Finally, Laugh Comedy Club hosts comedians from all over the country and performance-based shows. Laugh also offers a full service bar for those of drinking age. College Night at Laugh Comedy Club is on Thursday with $5 tickets for students plus various drink specials.

When it comes to Bloomington-Normal sports bars, there is no question Pub II is a destination for students and locals alike. The cozy atmosphere, great prices, variety of seating, and good views on all TVs for any sporting event helped the Pub II snag the first place award in the this category. “It’s an honor to be selected as No. 1,” Pub II manager Terry Stralow said. “We do a lot to generate traffic. We like to think our prices are reasonable and we think that the students really enjoy coming here to catch a game and have some drinks.” The popular Buffalo Wild Wings took second place and Elroy’s took third place. No matter where you go, Buffalo Wild Wings is always a good sports bar destination. The Pub II is rife with local flair while Buffalo Wild Wings is a successful national chain, and customers will find a menu with very wide variety at Buffalo Wild Wings. Buffalo Wild Wings Manager, Jackie Spelde, agreed. “We love the variety we get in town; we really appeal to everybody, families and students alike.” Whether you are looking for the wings and sauce variety of Buffalo Wild Wings, or the great drink specials and crowd of the Pub II, both are sure to continue as popular hits with students at ISU for years to come. Heading to either location to watch a sporting event and cheer on your team with crowds of strangers, you are guaranteed to have a great time.

The bright neon purple sign atop Starplex Cinemas in Normal is a beacon of movie entertainment to college students and community members all over town. “Were pretty convenient as far as location goes … we’re very affordable,” Mike Fenske, Starplex Cinemas Normal Stadium 14 general manager, explained. Starplex offers a reward card to patrons as well, so frequent movie-goers can rack up points toward movie tickets, concessions, and more. Located a bit further from campus, Wehrenberg Theatres Galaxy 14 Cine, reigning in second place, offers several deals and promotions for students in the area, making it a destination for students on a budget. “With a student ID, you get a discount at night for about $2.50. If [you] are in college, [you] also get a 25 percent discount on concessions,” Vince Dillard, assistant manager at Wehrenberg, said. One of the popular promotions at Wehrenberg Theatres is their MVP card, which allows patrons to get a free medium popcorn from the concessions before enjoying their film of choice. “On Wednesdays it’s our student day, and with a college ID, its buy one ticket, get one free,” Dillard added. Bringing up third place was Normal Theater, a beautiful oldfashioned theater with a bright, light-up sign located in Uptown Normal. The theater brings a landmark and movie theater charm to the area.

Alyssa Siegele daily vidette editor in chief

Living at home for the first time can be difficult and, for many students, stressful. In the Bloomington-Normal community, several leasing companies compete for your lease signature. Winning first place for best large apartment customer service was Young America Realty, followed by SAMI in second place and First Site in third. “We are very excited about unveiling our online tenant portal. Every resident will be able to log in and view their account balance, make an online payment, register a maintenance request, and have a conversation with the property manager all without having to leave their own aparment,” Randy Paulissen, Young America property manager, said. “We are always striving to make life more convienent for our tenants. We are also very excited about our new luxuary apartments that will be opening this summer at Patriot Station and The Lodge.” Paulissen said customer service is a strong value to Young America. “Customer service is instilled in every one of our employees at Young America. From our leasing agents to our maintenance staff and our management team, we value our tenants and want to provide them with the best apartments, the best customer service, and an enjoyable college experience,” Paulissen explained. The company has won multiple categories this year, as well. “Not only can we offer the largest selection of student apartments, but we have won the Vidette’s best property at Willow Trails for the third straight year, and we also have won the best customer service award for the fourth straight year,” he concluded.

For the second year running, College Station Apartments has been rated number one by the ISU community in the category of small apartment customer service. Second and third place rankings were given to Class Act Realty and The Edge, respectively. With its fully furnished apartments, fitness center, sand volleyball court, and heated pool, College Station prides itself as a luxury establishment committed to providing its tenants with “college living at its best.” According to Rachel Naas, property manager for College Station, the repeated first place ranking in customer service is evidence that customer service remains a top priority. “We always try to put our tenants first, so I think this is [students] letting us know that we’re doing something right and it feels really good,” Naas said. While grateful for the students that voted College Station to the first place spot, Naas said she and her staff will continue working hard to fulfill students’ expectations and provide the kind of quality attention that she would expect if she were a tenant. “I try to treat people as I would want to be treated with big issues and even little issues,” Naas said. “Everything is important regardless, and it needs to be addressed one way or another. That’s the rule I live by,” she added. Ken Witte, leasing manager for second place Class Act Realty, said that while he had hoped for first, he plans to continue fulfilling the needs of his tenants to the best of his ability.

As students persistently strive toward their personal fitness goals, many continue to appreciate the accessibility of local fitness centers. ISU students voted the Student Fitness Center the best place to work out, while Gold’s Gym Express and Charter Fitness followed in second and third place. Andy Read, assistant director of marketing for the Student Fitness Center, said he is thrilled that the fitness center was voted first place. He added that it is a great feeling to know students are pleased with the facility. “We’ve had over 500,000 people come through in less than a year that we were open. We’re just excited that we’re offering a lot of things that students are interested in,” Read explained. Read was elated about the success of the rec and believes that the center has great opportunities for students to get involved. He said he looks forward to seeing more students make use of the great services provided at the rec. David Holmes, Gold’s Gym Express’ general manager, is appreciative of ISU’s votes and explained the many benefits of being a Gold’s Gym Express member. “I think we offer a great workout experience and a great location for a great price. Also, our circuit training in the back is for people who may not be accustomed to strength machines. They can go back there and still get a full body workout,” he said. Holmes believes it can be beneficial for ISU students to utilize the rec center, as well as Gold’s Gym Express.

daily vidette features editor

When a special occasion occurs on campus, students often encourage family and friends to make the trip to visit Bloomington-Normal. While Mom and Dad can bunk up on the couch, a great alternative is to find a nearby hotel to offer exactly what they need to have a good rest and enjoy their time in the land of the Redbirds. This year, ISU voters named The Marriott of Bloomington-Normal as the best hotel in the area. Whether it has to do with the Marriott name, the great location near campus, or the many amenities provided, the Marriott has taken the top position. According to Heather VanVoorhis, director of sales and marketing at the Marriott, being named number one each year since the Marriott opened in 2009 is an honor, especially since the relationship between the two is very strong. “We work closely with faculty and students and so it’s great to hear and especially for three years running since we’ve been opened,” VanVoorhis said. VanVoorhis explained that part of the popularity for the Marriott among students and the ISU community is heavily based upon their proximity to campus. “Our location is key, being adjacent to Illinois State is a huge factor. Also, Marriott has high standards, grand standards, and a high level of customer service, and we hope that they seek us out because of the amenities of the hotel. And the accommodations we provide are top notch in the market,” VanVoorhis said.

Students voted Milner Library as the best place to study in the Best of Bloomington-Normal 2012 survey. The Bone Student Center Atrium followed in second place and the State Farm Hall of Business Atrium followed in third. The BSC Atrium is conveniently located on the second floor and fits 67 people comfortably, Barb Dallinger, associate director of the Bone Student Center, said. Milner Library has 1,520 seats, including comfortable chairs, bean bags, chairs to help students sit up and stay awake, chairs with tables, and chairs that hold computers, Toni Tucker, assistant dean for enabling infrastructure in Milner Library, said. “Many students have commented that they like the different types of space in the library to study; there are quiet floors, group study areas, [and] places to create a podcast or video and watch DVDs and other types of media,” Tucker added. “The library is also a social space where you can meet your friends, study together, [and] see who else is at the library.” Aside from comfy areas, the BSC Atrium shares a number of popular utilities in common with the library such as Wi-Fi, supplies, and a newly remodeled bright space, Dallinger said. “While we don’t meet the definition of a true library, the Atrium is certainly a wonderful place to study, meet with a group, or just relax between classes,” she added. “Milner Library soon will begin offering a free, self-service scanning, which will complement our existing photocopying and printing services,” Tom Peters, assistant dean for strategic initiatives at Milner, explained.

While choosing a tattoo or piercing you won’t regret is no easy task, choosing a studio to get that tattoo or piercing can be even more difficult. However, ISU students know exactly where to go: Graphic Flesh. For the second consecutive year, Graphic Flesh was voted the Best Tattoo/Piercing Studio in Bloomington-Normal. “I’m extremely proud and thankful for all the support in town and on campus. We really try to keep our standards very high and treat our customers with so much respect. That’s always been our number one goal,” Alysha Franco, Graphic Flesh owner, said. According to Franco, students prefer Graphic Flesh over other local tattoo and piercing studios because of the amount of customer service and artwork its artists and piercers provide. “We really try to keep our studio top quality and provide the best experience. You really get the whole package here,” she said. Graphic Flesh will soon have “amazing” tattoo and piercing specials in celebration of the studio’s eighth year in business, Franco added. Artkore Tattoos came in second, and while owner Steve McClintock is grateful to have been voted for the category at all, he strongly believes his studio should have placed first. “I think that people need to go online and compare our competitors’ tattoos to the work that we do at Artkore and make their own decision based on that. At Artkore Tattoos, you’re going to spend a little bit more money, but you’re going to get what you pay for in the final work,” McClintock said.

Online textbook rental companies have become more and more appealing to college students because they are a convenient, relatively inexpensive means to buy textbooks. However, several students continue to value and utilize local suppliers. ISU voted Alamo II as the best local bookstore, while Barnes & Noble and Campus Town followed in second and third place, respectively. “I like to think that we’ve got the best service [and] we’ve got the best selection at a good price. If you can save $150 to maybe $200 over another store on campus, I think that’s a big part of [our success],” Larry Ernat, Alamo II manager, explained. The Illinois State alum recalled merely shopping at the Alamo II six and a half years ago, and took pride in his current position as the manager. “Thank you, [ISU students], for your patronage. We’ve got regulars who come in here every day, sometimes more than once a day. It’s you guys that we try to do this for, to make sure we not only give you the best prices but also give you the best service,” Earnet added. Anne Harner, manager of the Barnes & Noble located in the Bone Student Center, said there are certain features that make the bookstore one of a kind. “One thing that makes us unique is that since we’re the university bookstore. A set percent of all purchases go back to ISU to help keep student fees low … we’re the only store that does that. We appreciate the support of the students so that we then can support ISU more,” Harner added.

Let’s face it: Sometimes a girl just needs to get her hair done. But why risk the possibility of a bad cut or dye job? ISU students think three local hair salons are a cut above the rest. Paul Mitchell The School, Great Clips, and Fox & Hounds Day Spa were voted the first, second, and third best hair salons, respectively. Each hair salon strives to accommodate ISU students with fair prices and professional stylists and all are located close enough to drive or take a bus to. Roxy Twaddle, admissions leader at Paul Mitchell The School, explained what they appreciate about ISU students. “We have been here in Bloomington for about five years and we really appreciate all of the student who vote for us. We love that we can be a staple for them and kind of be their stylist at their home away from home,” Twaddle said. Great Clips Manager Melissa Orrick also mentioned they appreciate student business. “Thank you for your continued patronage to our Great Clips salons in Bloomington-Normal. It’s going to be a great year here at Great Clips with our third store open inside the Schnucks on Veteran’s Parkway. For your, convenience download our check-in app,” Orrick said.

There comes a time in every person’s life when they finally discover the thrill of a good bargain. For many of us, it happens during our college years. Like a form of urban hunting, thrift store shopping can be just as gratifying as acing a midterm or receiving a hefty paycheck — especially if you know the best place to go. This year, ISU students voted Goodwill as the best resale shop. “It makes us very proud. We have a great team [in BloomingtonNormal] and they work very hard in supporting our mission. Knowing that customers have identified us as one of the resale shops that they like to shop at really says a lot,” Sharon Durbin, Land of Lincoln Goodwill president and CEO, said. While the primary goal of Goodwill is to “help people help themselves,” it can also be a necessity for students living on a tight budget or those who are looking to sport a particular style. “I think college students are attracted to Goodwill because we receive so many eclectic and vintage donations. Whatever your style is, you can go to Goodwill and not only be in style with the latest trends, but also get those items at discounted and fair prices,” Durbin said. Another favorite shop among fashion-frugal students is Plato’s Closet, which was voted runner-up. “We want to thank the students for their support, because obviously we need them to keep our store running and we’re striving to be better and will hopefully be voted first next year,” Jesse Davis, Plato’s Closet assistant manager, said.

The Fresh Market has been voted best organic grocery store in Bloomington-Normal. “We are honored that our customers have selected The Fresh Market as the best organic grocer. We appreciate the recognition and love being a part of the Bloomington-Normal community,” Drewry Sackett, The Fresh Market public and community relations manager, said. The Fresh Market is proud to provide its customers with fresh produce and quality groceries while simultaneously creating a comfortable shopping atmosphere. When walking into one of their locations, patrons will be greeted with the age-defying sounds of Vivaldi. “We strive to provide the freshest, best tasting products available in a unique atmosphere with exceptional customer service,” Sackett said. Naturally Yours claimed second place. “We try to offer the best customer service and education that we can about organic and natural products,” Michelle Stipp, Naturally Yours general manager, said. The food sold at Naturally Yours is all natural and organic, which means it has no preservatives, no dyes, and no added hormones. “When you eat all natural foods, you don’t have to worry about chemicals and pesticides clogging up your brain. So you tend to think clearer and your body tends to get more nutrition, so you function better in just about every way,” Stipp said.

ROCKY MTN. CHOCOLATE

S E C O N D cookies by design chocolatier THIRD

Carly Stinson

daily vidette staff writer

There’s no better way to say “I’m sorry” than with chocolate, at least according to this year’s Best Of voters. Retailers specializing in chocolate and other sweet treats were voted to the three top spots in the “I’m Sorry” store catagory. The best “I’m Sorry” store is a place to go when you know you’ve done wrong and need to ask for forgiveness. Voters chose Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory as the best place to go. Cookies by Design took second place, and The Chocolatier rounded out the top spots in third. According to Britney Royal, cook and cashier at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, the win was unexpected but was exciting. Rocky Mountain provides several gifts that will fit an apology. “We have all kinds of things, from little to big. We have baskets of goodies, a ten pound candy bar, or even a teddy bear,” Royal said. Cookies by Design is a store most popularly known for its cookie bouquet that combines two popular gifts, cookies and flowers. The win was unexpected for them as well. Sarah Goyne, manager, explained they have plenty of “I’m sorry” gifts available. “We can do anything as far as customizing something for someone. We have over 400 different bouquet designs that can fit any occasion,” Goyne said. As far as using chocolate to patch up a problem, Goyne believes “nothing cheers up someone like a sweet treat. The way our cookies look … they just make people smile.”

S E C O N D ultimate tan south beach THIRD

Alyssa Siegele

daily vidette editor in chief

When it’s the middle of December and stepping outside means bundling up in a sweatshirt, winter coat, heavy jeans, and boots, the first thing we complain about is the freezing temperatures. The second thing, for some, is how quickly pale skin sets in when the sun retreats for months. Of the many tanning salons around campus, ISU voted The Sun Room on Hovey Avenue the best. With over 40 beds, patrons rarely wait for a tanning bed or service from the staff. Students are drawn to The Sun Room for a few reasons, according to Amanda Garrelts, manager at the tanning salon. “I think its probably the location and that we change our bulbs often. [Customers] do get a tan ... they’re getting more of their money’s worth,” she explained. The Sun Room has 41 beds in all with eight different beds available to tanners, plus the Mystic Tan, which allows those trying to avoid some UV rays a chance to tan. Both the variety and students passing along their experience contributed to their first place win, Garrelts said. “A lot of it has to do with word of mouth. And we have free tans for $5, and that gets a lot of people in the door and if they like it come back,” she added. Coming in second was Ultimate Tan and in third South Beach.

GIGI BOTTEGA

shop. best specialty store

S E C O N D bedtime boutique girl friday THIRD

Alyssa Siegele daily vidette editor in chief

In Bloomington-Normal, you’ll find large chain stores like Target, Kohl’s, American Eagle, and Dick’s Sporting Goods. While all of these stores can fulfill quick trips and needs for clothing and supplies, more interesting shopping can be done at the many specialty stores in the area. Winning first place by ISU’s vote, GiGi Bottega, offers contemporary styles to students on a budget. First opened in October 2009, GiGi Bottega strives to bring back the “boutique shopping experience” of the past, according to their website, gigibottega.com. Coming in at second place was Bedtime Boutique, located in Bloomington, and coming in third was Girl Friday, a spa and boutique also located in Bloomington. According to Gina Vericella, owner of GiGi, a few factors contribute to the store’s success as a specialty store. “I think that we carry fashion-forward, wearable clothing, and when I go on my shopping trips, I keep in mind what the ISU students like,” Vericella explained. “We have a good price point and limited quantity, so not everyone will have the same clothes,” she added. What shoppers find at GiGi Bottega are uniqie pieces of clothing that not every other girl in town will be wearing, which Vericella mentioned was an attractive part of the store to consumers. “They can find different styles that aren’t mass-produced. No one else has it in town and it’s fashion-forward and wearable. Thank you to everyone who supports local, independent shopping,” she said.

No matter what your diet is, whether it’s Ramen noodles or raw veggies, student wallets can sometimes take quite the hit when it comes to buying groceries. Voters chose Wal-Mart, located on Greenbriar Drive in Normal, as the best grocery store. “I think it’s fantastic and I would like to thank all of the ISU students and faculty members who shop at our store,” Jeff Wallace, WalMart store manager, said. According to Wallace, Wal-Mart strives to maintain a higher variety of products at a lower price than its competitors. Wal-Mart also tries to appeal to its student customers, which often hit the store in mass numbers during the first week of each semester. “A lot of stores have buy-one, get-one-free specials and all that, but if you actually go through and compare your receipts from WalMart to those of our competitors, we’re usually about 12 to 18 percent less costly on our consumable products without any gimmicks,” he said. Jewel-Osco took second place, and it was no surprise to Chris Compiseno, store director, that students enjoy shopping there. “Our store is located about five minutes away from [the] ISU campus, so it’s very convenient for the students. We also offer our 15 percent discount for ISU students and faculty who show their university ID card. Everybody likes saving money, but especially students,” Compiseno said. The ISU discount continues to increase sales at both Jewel-Osco locations and the store will likely offer the deal again during upcoming semesters, he added.

Sophomore running back Darreion Robinson (7) rushes past App. State defenders during the 31-28 loss last week.

Homecoming is here BY JANNAH BOLDS The George-Anne staff

Today, the Eagles of Georgia Southern University will wrap up the 2012 homecoming week festivities with a football game finale against the Howard University Bison. This game marks the first meeting between the two teams, with Howard ranked third in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and GSU at the top of the Southern Conference. Going into the competition, the Bison have produced a 6-3 record with two games left in the regular season—GSU and Delaware State University. The Eagles, on the other hand, are just beginning to overcome the upset that rival Appalachian State University pulled a week Page designed by Kelsey Paone

ago. With the loss, and no more conference games, the Eagles boast a 7-2 record. GSU’s primary running backs junior Robert Brown and sophomore Dominique Swope have been out due to injury. “We hope to get Dominique back soon but he’s battling a concussion. Robert Brown is out for the rest of the season with his third concussion,” GSU head coach Jeff Monken. Throughout the last few games, the Eagles have been switching up their players at running back in order to make up for the loss. GSU has used junior quarterback Jerick McKinnon, junior slot Johnathan Bryant and junior fullback William Banks more than ever. Although Brown and Swope have been absent from the field, the Eagles still have benefitted from the athleticism of newer

players. Having to face the GSU defense for the first time, the Bison offense will be forced to prepare for GSU’s senior safety J.J. Wilcox and the defensive line. HU’s junior quarterback Randy Liggins jr. and senior running back Terrence Leffall have been the leaders for the Bison, boasting high numbers. In last week’s competition against Hampton University, Leffall rushed for a career-high of 182 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Liggins, jr. aided in the Bison victory by completing six of 12 passes for 58 yards plus an extra 27 yards rushing and a touchdown. Since the Bison defense has never faced the Eagle’s famous triple-option, the team will have to concentrate on keeping up with GSU’s speedy offense.

BEST THRIFT/VINTAGE SHOP

BEST BURGERS

Salvation Army

Blimpy Burger

Vintage is the name of the fashion game in Ann Arbor, and while we enjoy an abundance of trendy thrift stores crammed into building attics, basements and every space in between, none of them can compare to the sheer size, variety and unpredictability of the Salvation Army. Though many students see it first and foremost as a great place to find a deal for an “ugly Christmas sweater party,” the warehouse-sized facility is chock-full of amazing everyday buys for anyone with a little time on their hands and a sense of adventure, offering everything from leather jackets to prom dresses to ’90s windbreaker jumpsuits.

The store itself is impeccably clean and impossibly well-organized, with clothes arranged by color to create a massive rainbow of sweaters, turtlenecks and T-shirts. Their books and LPs are delightfully hit-or-miss, and the home-goods section tucked into their back corner offers everything from mismatched wedding china to cheap apartment couches, perfect for anyone on an offcampus budget. Plenty of dressing rooms and an unrivaled selection means you’ll tire long before you exhaust the endless racks of clothes, so make sure you plan for a day-long excursion when heading to Washtenaw’s near-legendary Salvation Army. —LAUREN CASERTA

ADAM GLANZMAN/Daily

If you don’t like having diabetes, dying from heart and/or liver disease or acquiring the multitude of cancers scientifically linked to eating red meat and deep-fried anything, stay far, far away from Blimpy Burger. If you like polite, “we value our customers” service and change that doesn’t suck/fits in a vending machine (not half dollars), also stay away from Blimpy Burger. If you like your service with snark instead of a smile, think that strange money nobody uses is fun and, most importantly, like your food drenched in gallons of greasy “good for you” oil, head to the “oldest hamburger stand in Ann Arbor.” The menu

offers “other sandwiches & goodies,” but really, they only offer burgers, fries and other forms of deep-fried “cheaper than food” sustenance, unless you’re willing to tolerate torrents of abuse from the staff. Then again, they’re not mocking you because they like to. Well, maybe they do. But if you’re ordering anything other than their juicy, delectable piles of freshly ground beef, and pairing that with an order of something that isn’t their delectably deep-fried mixed vegetables (like tempura but not as unjustifiably expensive), get out of line and leave Blimpy to the professionals. —DAVID TAO

TERRA MOLENGRAFF/Daily

BEST DESSERT/ICE CREAM Stucchi’s It’s hard to grasp Ann Arbor’s love for Stucchi’s until you’re standing in line for free ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s and you see people sitting inside Stucchi’s eating exactly the same dessert they could have gotten for free only a few feet away. Correction: It’s not the same dessert. Stucchi’s is an examplar of that rare native Ann Arbor business that has continued to be a city staple over multiple generations. It’s the place you take your family to because they haven’t heard of the wonder that is frozen yogurt, it’s where you hang out with friends you haven’t seen since orientation, and most often, Stucchi’s

is that wondrous haven where you can bury your stress and finalsweek panic attacks in a mound of “Swiss Chocolate Almond.” Yeah, sure, Stucchi’s is different from its competition because it’s local. It has the perfect location to hop over from home or class for a quick dessert break, and it’s got enough flavors to keep a sweettooth experimenting for months. But what makes Stucchi’s special is it tastes fresher and richer than any other ice cream in town, and has flavors so original and delectable that going to Stucchi’s becomes the rare, special event you can’t help but look forward to. —ADITI MISHRA

BEST NEW BUSINESS Bongz & Thongz

MARLENE LACASSE/Daily

Despite getting off to a rough start, Bongz & Thongz has managed to root itself in slightly off-campus downtown Ann Arbor with its menagerie of smoking accessories and adult novelties. With an impressive array of reasonably priced pieces — ranging from discreet one-hitters to more military-themed gas-maskand sniper-rifle-shaped bongs — the friendly and knowledgeable storeowners succeed in their aim to carve out their own niche in a market with

nearby competition like 42 Degrees, Stairway to Heaven and Smoka Hookah. Just downstairs from a hookah and shisha inventory that would make Jabba the Hutt blush, more adventurous patrons will find themselves in a land of X-rated threads and accessories. Bongz & Thongz lives up to its name by delivering on both fronts while providing excellent customer service, and is a must-see even for those not inclined to use either. —JULIAN AIDAN

MARLENE LACASSE/Daily

BEST HOUSING Zaragon Place Who lived there? The only person I knew of was a high-school acquaintance, rumored to have dropped out of college after he made his fortune on the stock market. He drove a Porsche. He lived the life. So I had heard. Do they have hot tubs at Zaragon? Rooftop tennis courts? Live tigers as extravagant pets? Maybe. I simply didn’t know. But I vowed to myself that if I ever made it big (hitting the lottery, creating the next Internet sensation or starting my own band) I would immediately move to

Zaragon to cement my status as a kid who was as cool as Ferris Bueller. A year or so later, I found myself rising in Zaragon’s elevator to a party on the top floor. The dream was coming true, partially. What sort of wonders would I encounter? The answer was quite simple. Instead of exotic animals, I saw a beautiful apartment. And while there was no hot tub, there was an amazing view of a glowing Ann Arbor. Somehow, it was nothing like I imagined, but it still met my expectations. —MATT EASTON

BEST COFFEE SHOP Espresso Royale

ALLISON KRUSKE/Daily

Espresso Royale is the coffee shop you want to walk into bleary-eyed after a long night of cramming, frustration and more than a few nervous breakdowns. The atmosphere is the perfect kind of casual: warm and inviting, but as straight-to-business as the larger coffee chains. Request just a normal coffee (ever the sin these days), and you’ll receive a cup, which you can fill with the perfect ratio of a selection of coffees, milks and whatever accoutrements are deemed necessary. And, oh yeah, the coffee is pretty delicious. Between all of the self-labeled coffee aficionados and the 12-step ordering processes, did everyone forget that most of us just want a cup of

joe to get us through our 9 a.m. seminar? Well, Espresso didn’t. The pump-pot selection isn’t fancy; it doesn’t boast quadruple-roasted coffee. But it does house some tasty, comforting blends with simple, unassuming names: Lighthouse, Solidario, Carnivale. And the flavors are anything but — nutty here, floral there and always ready to give a morning boost. That’s not to say Espresso can only brew a simple mugful. Their vanilla lattés rival any hipster café, and they know their way around their namesake machine. Get a sweetheart latté (cinnamon and vanilla) off the menu for a delicious day-starter. —ELLIOT ALPERN

BEST SANDWICHES

BEST OUTDOOR APPAREL Bivouac It’s no great surprise that Bivouac has topped the list again for best outdoor store. As written in a recent Yelp review, “If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’re going to go ga-ga over this place!” The locally owned outdoor store has a huge variety of gear and outdoor-wear brand names. Though it’s hard to gauge the store’s primary market (are they a store for hardcore outdoor enthusiasts or the brand-conscious?) Bivouac is united by one factor: quality. All of the clothing and gear at Bivouac is top-notch — exactly what you need for your mountain-climbing venture over

Zingerman’s Deciding on Zingerman’s means you’re not settling for a mere sandwich. You’re gearing up for a Zingerman’s Reuben — layered with corned beef, melty Swiss cheese (from Switzerland!), sauerkraut and that smooth drizzle of Russian dressing, all sweetly mashed between warm rye bread. It’s the original sandwich of the gods. Their heavenly Reuben — and full menu of other deliciously scrumptious items — put Ann Arbor’s tiny delicatessen on the map, making it the must-visit place for handcrafted sandwich magic. Even Mario Batali, of Iron Chef fame, taste-approved Zingerman’s as the best of the best

TODD NEEDLE/Daily

where all things corned beef are concerned. It’s no wonder Ann Arbor-ites voted Zingerman’s the best sandwich. Was there any other option? It’s really a crime to pit Zingerman’s against just any other deli. Since its inception in 1982, it has far surpassed being considered a simple “sandwich shop.” The iconic Ann Arbor staple makes handcrafted art every day it churns out its beloved, edible product. As you sink your teeth into the all-too-appetizing sculpture in front of you, remember that dining at Zingerman’s is an experience, prices be damned. Don’t forget your free pickle! — KELLY ETZ

spring break or your weekend escapade down to Red River Gorge. If you’re feeling a little less adventurous, their ultrawarm coats will keep you nice and toasty as you brave the cold Michigan winter for that house party across campus. The quality does come at a price, but the savvy shopper will take advantage of Bivouac’s guaranteed price matching and end-of-season sales. With its prime location, Bivouac is Ann Arbor’s hub for both the outdoor enthusiast and the fashion-conscious. —JOEY STEINBERGER

ADAM GLANZMAN/Daily

BEST MEDITERRANEAN FOOD Jerusalem Garden

AUSTEN HUFFORD/Daily

It doesn’t look like much when you walk in. The cash register and baklava counter up front don’t scream with the ambiance of an overpriced Mediterranean chain, nor do the aproned cooks and sizzling grill that take up most of the restaurant’s entryway. But it’s these unrefined quirks that give Jerusalem Garden its comfortable, unpretentious charm — the paper napkins, potted plants and wooden furniture tightly hugged by yellow walls. The food itself, however, is what makes J-Garden really stand out in Ann Arbor’s sea of pita-andhummus joints. It’s here where you can order a plate of the freshest falafel around, and tear your

fork through hot, crispy layers until you hit its soft (and unmistakably green) chickpea center. It’s also here that classics such as the chicken shawarma and Jerusalem burger live and thrive in their pita-wrapped glory — and don’t forget the fabled spinach pies that aren’t always available to order, but keep Ann Arborites talking and coming back in enthusiastic groups whenever they are. Jerusalem Garden is, in short, a bite-sized mecca of simple masterpieces: The hummus is always creamy, the tabbouli is always tart and you won’t feel out of place in a ratty jacket or oversized sweatshirt. —CHLOE STACHOWIAK
