$4 tuition increase approved by Board for fall semester JORDIN GIGNAC NEWS EDITOR

The Board of Trustees approved the $4 tuition increase at the board meeting last Thursday, Feb. 21. According to Associate Vice President of Academic Planning Joe Collins, the big reason for raising the tuition was to contribute to the raises that all of the college’s would be receiving this year. Since the Board approved the increase in pay by 3.15 percent, according to union negotiations, the college had to the approval. Collins said that the lowest amount the college could raise tuition was three percent since the most they could get from taxpayers was an increase of four percent.

The college has continued to have a tuition increase for more than thirteen years and since 2009, it has increased tuition by approximately $12. “The reason is that the expenses for running a college continue to go up,” Collins said. “[And] one big driver is employee’s salaries.” The college has more than 1,300 adjunct faculty members and that’s not nearly as close to the number of full time faculty. we’d have to give no raises or we’d have to lay people off or we would have to not do things like upgrading our buildings and facilities,” Collins said.

that does is it unfairly impacts the students that happen to be there when you have the tuition increase,” Collins said. “So if you did a small raise like four dollars every year then it kind of spreads it out.” The $4 tuition increase will take affect during the start of fall semester 2013.

Following the success and popularity of memes in the past few years, Student Leadership Council has been working to embrace the now almost conventional method of sharing information. Memes and other forms of viral promotion have been tested out around campus before, but not with the same tenacity and perseverance that has come of late. Last semester, it was not uncommon to see scattered pop culture references with an image on that all too familiar split piece background indicating an event or

The college recently hosted their own version of the Harlem Shake dance that has entranced most of the country but the college’s version featured clubs and organizations dressing up for their cause as well as a full audience around the atrium that was quite receptive to the event. Students lined up

As the Courier has noted in the past, student involvement needs to be on the rise and the solution might have been tips the whole time on the world wide web.

As of late, only a few events and meetings have cers, but Student Trustee Olivia Martin feels the best is still to come with the devotion to projects and marketing that has since been displayed. Getting students more involved in service projects and campus events is no easy task, but SLC looks to move bravely forward. While you may not browse memebase or reddit for hours, one does not simply ignore memes as a marketing tool on campus in this day and age.

Inspiring Students to make a Difference ROSALIE DEASTIS FEATURES EDITOR

An environmental organization that was established by Chad Pregracke in 1998, Living Lands and Waters is a river cleanup organization where volunteers spend up to nine months a year on a barge, where they host not only cleanups, but workshops and other conservation efforts as well. Pregracke visited the college this past Tuesday to talk about his mission to inspire and motivate students to make a difference in their communities. The Mississippi River was literally Pregracke’s backyard growing up near East Moline, IL. He enjoyed spending his childhood in the river, “I never realized how lucky I was to grow up around the river,” commented Pregracke. When he was 15, he started spending his summer breaks as a commercial shell diver

to save up for college. It was during this time when he learned how terrible the rivers were, with toxic accumulation of trash along their banks. At 17, Pregracke started trying to get his voice heard by making calls

to government agencies to explain the problem to them. After years of trying to bring attention to the issue and watching it get worse, he decided to he was going to clean up the river if no one else would.


Josephin Salewski, 24, is currently a student at COD, but is also a Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) scholar. She has been here since August and is taking Spanish, French, and psychology classes. The CBYX program was created to strengthen ties between Germany and the United States through citizen diplomacy. The program was founded in celebration of the 300th year anGerman immigration to the United States. Salewski grew up in the capital of Germany, Ber-

lin with her mother and father, where her mother is an elementary school teacher. Before deciding to apply for the program, Salewski had earned her Associates Degree as a multi-lingual assistant. “I’ve always wanted to travel to America to study and see what it has to offer,” commented the exchange student. 1,300 German students applied this year and only 75 were chosen to participate. The application process starts over a year in advance and requires many tests and essays. The program kicks off with a four-day introduction in New York, then students are all sent to the state that was cho-

sen for them. Salewski took an eight-hour train ride to arrive here where she met the host mother she would be living with in Carol Stream. CBYX requires scholars to work part-time and engage in a full load of classes only work full-time the second semester. Salewski is working part-time the COD Learning Commons and is looking for another part-time job. Salewski’s journey has been full of new experiences such as celebrating a handful of American holidays.

He founded Living Lands and Waters when he was 23 and it has grown to have had over 60,000 volunteers so far. The organization has received global attention and is sponsored by companies like Pep-

si and Coca-cola. “My mission is not only about the river, it’s sion through volunteering,” said Pregracke. “If you see a problem, think about what you can do about it.”

Freelance writer Troy Chance is taking photos of the Saranac Lake Winter built of frozen blocks cut from the local lake. Suddenly, the ice-cutting machine abruptly stops, and a hushed silence falls over the working crew. Encased in the ice is the shadowy outline of a body -- a local man known to the small group that is gathered. Despite no evidence of foul play, the media descends on the Lake Placid, mates, who casually dated the victim, immediately becomes a prime suspect and the subject of small-town gossip. Troy is assigned by her editor to write an in-depth feature on Tobin Winslow and his mysterious death. Was it more than a tipsy late-night stroll across a lake, on ice too thin, in weather too brutally cold? Soon, it is revealed that Tobin was the privileged son of a wealthy Connecticut family, who moved to this remote Adirondack village to escape a family tragedy that had haunted him in town to learn more about her know whom to trust or believe. Through her investigation, she ultimately uncovers a story that threatens to shatter the tranquility of the mountain town. She must decide which family secrets should be exposed, which truths should remain hidden, and how far her own loyalty and professional ambition can reach. “A Cold and Lonely Place” provides a strong cast of female characters, each of whom has her own reasons and agenda for taking up residence in a small town during an unforgiving and ical whodunit, but there are enough want to curl up with a cup of tea or hot chocolate and lose yourself for a spell.

It was the fourth time the Chaps had faced off against the Hawks, going 2-1 in the previous three contests. Defending Harper’s shooters was one of the keys to the Chaparral game plan and the Chaps were determined to play stout defense. “We basically just stuck to the coaches’ plan, not shooting the ball early and contain their shooters, “ Chaparral guard Dion Duffy said. “That was really big once we took them out

of the game it was just all on our defense.” The team certainly met some lights-out shooting from the Harper offense; especially from Hawks guard John Lorenz. Lorenz went on hot streaks in the second half where he seemingly could not miss a three-point shot. But the Chaps were not fazed and were equally relentless in their offensive attack. Second half lead changes were numerous and neither squad was able to take control of the game. Every time one team gained momentum with a big shot or fast break points off of a turnover, the other would answer right back with a score of its own.
