us,” second year student Hassam Effendi said. Although, the clothes that Muslims wear is most noticeable, the real misconception is the different cultures within the Islamic religion. “Everyone is different,” Second year student Samira Mohammad said.

“I want people to know that there are so many different people here from different cultures and we try to bring everyone together.” According to Khan, Muslims have found a home away from home on campus to feel welcomed as a religion and feel comfort-

able to be who they are. “Basically Islam is the way of life, live the life that has been taught in Islamic ways,” khan said. “COD has wonderful staff and it has wonderful students too, wherever I go I get a great response from them and I feel like I’m at home.”

The next candidate to make a speech was Khan who has had experience being involved in an organization where she had to take charge. “I love being able to put myself in other people’s shoes,” Khan said. Followed by Khan was Marino, a member of the Latino Ethnic Awareness Association and said that he would like to invite more people to join SLC. The last candidate was Sam Ortega and he said that he knew what SLC needed to succeed and he has had experience already in the council. nance chair Albert Knopf passed out note cards with the position title at the top and a blank line so voters could write down whom they wanted to win. Several seconds later, the SLC president Hank Gordon announced Sam Ortega as the new Vice President. The next position on the line was the Outreach Coordinator, as Beristany, Marino, Kassimo, and Dormer raised their candidacy. All candidates spoke about applying the need for social networking within the organization to increase student involvement. The candidates had the same subject but Dormer was the one who put the most passion into her speech. According to Dormer, the key to getting student involvement is to implement an improved media marketing strategy. Dormer said she would like to make templates for successions and once the voter cards went out, Gordon announced Dormer as the winner. The last position available to the candidates was Operations Coordinator and all remaining candidates stepped in. Each spoke about the continuing subject of social media and two contestants stood out the most. Kassimo and Khan both had high expectations for their spot in SLC and Kassimo highlighted her job as a social networking implementer but Khan held through to win with more votes.

EDITORIAL COURIER POLICY The Courier is published every Friday when classes are in session during the Fall and Spring Semesand last Friday of each Semester and the week of and the week after Spring Break as a public forum with content chosen by student editors.

The Courier does not knowingly accept advertisement that discriminate on the basis of sex, creed, religion, color, handicapped status, veteran or sexual orientation, nor does it knowingly print ads that violate any local, state or federal laws. The Courier encourages all students, faculty, staff, administrators and community members to voice their opinions on all the topics concerning them both in and out of school. Writers can express their views in a letter to Letters to the Editor. All correspondence and letters for publication must be typed and signed with the author’s daytime phone number.

Winter maintenance essential While this has been a very mild winter concerning snowfall, the weather hasn’t been that enjoyable with freezing rain, ice and snow. While the college can’t keep the howling winds from showing up, it has utilized maintenance and clearing of remaining precipitation to make the walk across campus less miserable. When snow does fall or ice builds up, the grounds spread salt or the beet juice mixture to prevent slips, falls and other accidents from occurring. In addition to reducing risk for walking around

on campus, diligence in the clearing of snow also keeps the maximum amount of parking spots available to students and patrons of the college, especially crucial during these initial weeks of the semester. Snowplows clear parking lots, while shovels and snow throwers keep sidewalks and other walkways clear. With parking and available space at a premium on campus, the upkeep of the college is instrumental in its success. Keeping walkways, parking lots and pedestrian areas clean helps keep travel times low,

whether by automobile going to the college or by foot walking from building to building. The increased cleanliness also reduces the amount of debris tracked into the interior of the college through puddles of melted snow or ice and mud or dirt on shoes. As construction continues and materials and workers are brought into work sites around campus, the carpeted areas are more susceptible to water damage or long lasting As was released the other day via the college’s website, tenth day full time enrollment

rose by nearly four percent, and with more students on campus, maintenance and upkeep becomes even more important to provide for As the winter season continues, we at the Courier hope that this level of cleanliness keeps up to maintain ease of traveling and also ensures a cleaner environment. As always, if there is residue brought in from the elements resulting in a mess, puddle or dirty area, or if anything on campus needs cleaning or work to function, please inform facilities at 942-4440.

OPINION How to get involved in campus safety Important The College of DuPage stands ready to protect you. Our professionals include faculty, staff and students that have been trained to respond in emergencies. Do you know what to do in an emergency whether a fire, a tornado or a massive emergency situation? The college ties together public safety both on and off campus in three ways: 1- Campus Police stands ready for Emergency Response 24/7 to protect the College of DuPage by handling daily emergencies: car accidents, CPR assistance, ambulance calls, lock outs, noise control, lock and security issues at (630) 942-2000. Did you know they also provide emergency information in all campus rooms for fire and tornado exiting? The college also provides fallout shelter facilities for surrounding communities coordinated by Campus Police. Their website provides Safety Tips and Emergency Response information at http://www.cod. edu/about/police_department/index.aspx 2- Did you know the College of DuPage has an Emergency Response Team? This team is staffed with faculty and staff throughout the college. In the event of a real emergency they stand ready to assist Campus Police in their efforts and provide information such as safe locations, exits, etc. They usually can be identified by their Orange Vests. You can become a member of this group by contacting Rick Spiers, COD Patrolman. 3- COD is located in Milton Township. Milton Township has formed a Citizens Corps Council under the guidance of FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. This council identifies organized groups and

individuals that could assist not only themselves, but others in the township during major disasters. These groups after 21 hours of training become CERT Teams in Milton Township. There are already 704 volunteers trained since inception. There is no cost to individuals (must be at least 18 years old) residing or working in the Township for this training or for the purchase of supplies to equip members or teams. That cost is borne by donations, the federal, and local government programs. We are reaching out to you, the Milton Township citizens to participate in the next training Thursday nights 2/7/13 to 3/21/2013 (7 nights 6:30pm to 9:30pm). There are on-going volunteer training events after initial training fort CERT members to enhance their learning experience. Milton Township and CERT trainees stand ready to insure that our community is capable of helping themselves in almost any situation for a period of time until professional help can arrive. Find out more information at: http://www.twp.milton.il.us/citizencorp.html Homeland Security is front and center in our minds after various catastrophic events over the years and the college is at the forefront of this important initiative with construction of the NEW Homeland Security Building. You can become a part of this movement toward a safer community by helping others through College of DuPage or through Milton Township, Citizens Corps Council training or by checking out the “Are you Ready” guide located on the FEMA website: http://www.ready.gov/are-you-ready-guide Bonny Belfanz

The coffee addiction

FEATURES EDITOR

If you’re inside the COD Starbucks in the SSC anytime between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., you’ll see a crowd of students in line, sitting at the bar studying with a frappuccino and a pastry, or lounging at the tables or couches socializing with their lattes, textbooks open and calculators out. According to General Manager Lynn Konicek, our Starbucks serves approximately 800 people a day and they sell around 800-900 drinks a day. Their best sellers are specialty lattes, such as the Chai Tea Latte, the Cinnamon Dolce Latte,

As yummy and enjoyable Starbucks drinks are, it can be frightening to learn about the amount of calories you’re consuming every week, and how those four-dollar lattes add up to shocking amounts of cash you’re spending every month. Some blame Starbucks for the obesity crisis in America. Others complain that it is overpriced and that Dunkin Donuts or McDonald’s

coffee tastes better. The Organic Consumers Association claims that “If your daily routine includes swinging by Starbucks for a quick latte, you may be well on your way to diabetes, obesity, or both.” Unfortunately, this could be true considering one drink has roughly the same calories as a full meal, without any doesn’t exclude the savory pastries either. The popular carrot cake has 600 calories; the “low-fat” said, a basic breakfast of add up to over 1,000

calories, which equals two meals. Fortunately, the adorable little cake pops are somewhat in a reasonable range with 170 calories in the Birthday Cake Pop and 180 in the Salted Caramel Cake Pop. The average student who visits this convenient coffee shop at least three times a week is consuming over 1,000 calories alone every week and is spending around $50.00 a month, which adds up to around $250 per semester. Not to mention they are also drinking over 20 teaspoons of sugar every week.

Future Pharmacists Organization holds Lifesource blood drive ROSALIE DEASTIS FEATURES EDITOR

This past Tuesday, COD’s Future Pharmacists Organization held a Lifesource blood drive. Lifesource is the largest blood center in Illinois and distributes a half-million blood products annually to approximately 60 area hospitals. They also are responsible for donating 90% of the blood people of Chicago need. Lifesource has been running blood drives at COD for around 10 years now and usually come around four times a year. At this most recent blood drive, 50 units were collected, which means 150 lives will be saved. Lifesource conducts an average of 10 mobile blood drives daily. Donating blood helps those who need transfusions, people suffering from anemia, car accidents, burn victims, cancer patients, newborns, and more.

“Blood is especially needed son,” commented a Lifesource representative at the event. Lifesource also provides free cholesterol screenings and free blood typing at their drives, and at this drive held by the FPO, they also had free massages. Medical students who helped run the event include Ruchi Thakkar, Bhumi Patel, and Lina Hartnett, all who are a part of the Future Pharmacists organization. “I was inspired to become a pharmacist just being around my father who owned a medicine factory,” commented 19-year-old Thakkar, who moved to Chicago from India just three years ago. She hopes to transfer to pharmaceutical education. “To be able to guide and help people is what I love most about this career,” she added.
