WORTH THE RENT? Textbook rentals lack student approval JORDIN GIGNAC NEWS EDITOR
Renting textbooks at Follettâ€™s bookstore locat-Â ed in the SRC was said to be a great way to help students with saving â€œout of pocketâ€? dollars. The Follett Higher Education Group has helped students with their textbook funds by making renting textbooks available to their cus-Â tomers, they say some students save half the cost on their textbooks. The store director of the collegeâ€™s bookstore, Jim Sexton, said that rent-Â ing books helps students save a lot of money. â€œRenting books helps students save money and allows their dollar to go further by lowering out of pocket textbook costs,â€? Sexton said. Most students like buy-Â ing their textbooks from Follettâ€™s bookstore because everything is organized. â€œEverything was easy WRĂ€QGÂľVWXGHQW'RP-Â inique Nadeau said.

Textbook rentals boast savings, but lack of variety and off campus options give students a choice for deals. However, this is only great news for some students who are DEOHWRĂ€QGWKHLUWH[W-Â books to be rentable. â€œEvery time I go there something else goes wrong,â€? student Alys-Â sa Kunsman said. Kunsman had numer-Â
ous problems by going in and asking for help only to leave more confused. Only 38 percent of text-Â books that they offer in the &2'ERRNVWRUHDUHDFWXDO-Â ly rentable which sparks some students to question where they should get the best discounts from.
â€œI rented a book off Amazon for 30 bucks and it wouldâ€™ve cost me 100 dollars [to rent it] at the bookstore here,â€? Sophomore student Nuriyah Toles said. Another student who has been at the college for four years says she is
still unimpressed. â€œThey need to hire more people and lower more prices,â€? student Nicole Purchase said. Many students have said that better deals were found on sites such as Amazon and Chegg, often less than half the price.

Two Wheels Vs. Four Biking to campus decreases your carbon footprint JORDIN GIGNAC NEWS EDITOR
Riding his bike to cam-Â pus everyday, Speech Professor Chris Miller has decreased his â€œcar-Â bon footprintâ€? on the pollution growing in the air today and he is not the only one. Several students and staff take their bike to school to let another have a parking spot closer to the building and they do it because they love it. NIU graduate Agatha Gryglak rode her bike to and from Dekalb, which was 65 miles and now rides 20 miles to COD. â€œ[Biking] is my form of transportation, exercise and fun,â€? Gryglak said. Gryglak said that bik-Â ing should be more ap-Â preciated and asked that the bike lanes be extend-Â ed to access safe ways
â€œBiking in America is weird. It is something you do and everyone else honks at you and yells ob-Â scenities,â€? KATIE HOWELL

Students can avoid parking hassles by locking their bikes right by the SSC. while biking to school. â€œI think the fact that they have bike lanes helps a lot, but ex-Â tending them further couldnâ€™t hurt,â€? Gryglak said. â€œAlso, being able
to rent bikes from COD would allow affordable access and increase the number of cyclists.â€? With ideas and advan-Â tages to riding a bike to school come more
possibilities of cutting down tight parking spaces for students who FDQQRWĂ€QGDQRWKHU way to get to campus. â€œPersonally I think there are too many cars
on the road,â€? Gryglak said. â€œI think people get into an unneces-Â sary habit of driving to close places.â€? In other countries bik-Â ing is more popular and more convienent than getting around in a car. Miller said he was impressed when he went to the Nether-Â lands and saw all of the safe routes for bikes and how easy it was for Netherland bikers. Current student Ka-Â tie Howell agrees with Miller on how Ameri-Â cans need to get more involved in other means of transportation other than just automobiles. â€œBiking in America is weird,â€? Howell said. â€œIt is something you do and ev-Â eryone else honks at you and yells obscenities.â€? In the mean time, the college has bike racks for the current bike riders and may-Â be that isnâ€™t enough. Students such as How-Â ell believe if someone helped the bicyclists by adding a cover over the bike racks, so that bikes would be better protected from the rain, would be appreciated â€œCars do not like bik-Â ers,â€? Miller said. Chris said anyway the college can help students and staff that do bike to school would be nice and would offer students a chance to bike with him. â€œI would be more than willing to show stu-Â dents the bike path that I take,â€? Miller said.

College lacks student involvement If youâ€™re in the vast majority of the collegeâ€™s students, as soon as the last class of the day gets RXWFKDQFHVDUHĂ€UVW thing you do is head for your car to leave. Itâ€™s a commuter col-Â lege and that comes with the territory. There are no dorms and aside from class-Â es, many view it as very little to keep stu-Â dents on campus. So, how can someone get involved on campus? Despite the turn out at a recent Student Life Fair on Aug. 29 that offered over 50 clubs and organizations for students to get in-Â volved with, the num-Â bers are still lacking. Student jobs as well as athletics, perform-Â ing arts and a plethora of other activities are available, yet the major-Â ity of students still just take classes and leave. On the collegeâ€™s web-Â
site, it states that over 20 percent of the attend-Â ees already have a bach-Â elorâ€™s degree or higher. For the college, and those students, it offers an opportunity for educa-Â tion, but also could affect student involvement. In a meeting with Student Leadership Council, the Courier discussed student in-Â volvement at the col-Â OHJHDQGWKHGLIĂ€FXOWLHV that come with being a community college. One of the factors that affect student in-Â volvement can include the amount of non-Âtra-Â ditional students that the college hosts. It was agreed unani-Â mously that out of the roughly 30,000 students that the college educates, even out of those most likely to get involved, that well under 50 per-Â cent do get involved. Numbers were thrown around, going as low as
less than 10 percent of students and averaging around 20 to 30 percent, of those students who can get involved, do. SLC is working to-Â wards bringing those students who can get involved, through an emphasis on outreach including a focus on tabling, recruitment, interaction and inte-Â gration with the stu-Â dent populous and clubs as a whole. An SLC meeting on Sept. 4 included voting in new revi-Â sions to the SLC op-Â erating documents. Major changes such as now allowing SLC mem-Â bers to vote at meetings as well as working to clarify documents and ease the voting process all work towards in-Â creasing involvement. Town Hall meetings which allow the students to often speak directly to the administration
and voice concerns such as the upcoming Piz-Â za with the President, which is expected to include President Robert Breuder, Vice President Joseph Collins and Dean of Student Affairs Sue Martin on Sept. 11, are going to focus on hot topics concerning the student body and are driven off of student re-Â sponse and participation. The Courier has no-Â ticed, especially con-Â cerning issues with the recent tobacco ban, students have all sorts of opinions on the matter, but on many occasions, they wonâ€™t voice them properly. Student involvement goes beyond joining a team or a club, and ex-Â tends into ideation and making the most out of the college experience. Be the change you want to see in the world. Or donâ€™t.

Who can you turn to?
Those who are trying to quit smoking have a lot of help and support surrounding them ROSALIE DEASTIS FEATURES EDITOR
The dangers of tobacco products are ever ap-Â parent from the warn-Â ings on the package and general education. From D.A.R.E. meet-Â ings in elementary school, to health class in high school, to later life experiences, however with the recent tobacco EDQLWPLJKWEHWKHĂ€QDO straw for some and could move towards quitting. Chaparral country is one place students can turn to for sup-Â port and guidance. In Fall of 2011, Dean of Student Affairs, Sue Martin started a com-Â mittee dedicated to making the college a tobacco free campus, spreading awareness about the dangers of smoking, and offering a helping hand to quit. On Aug. 28, the To-Â bacco Free Health Fair committee held a re-Â source fair in the Student Services Center Atrium. Students were able to gain information about what the committee is doing and also resourc-Â es about quitting. If you missed it, all you have to do is log on to www.cod.edu/ about/tobaccofree. +HUH\RXFDQĂ€QG information about what the college is offering to help you through your decision to stop smoking.
One resource the college is offering is free Smoking Cessa-Â tion Classes for all staff, students, and DuPage residents. Attendees will be given the tools and support they need to reach their goals, answers to their questions, and free resources to quit. There is a class on Tuesday, Sept. 18 and weekly sessions Sept. 12 through Nov. 6. All of the details about how to get involved with this program can be found on the web-Â site mentioned above. The DuPage County Health Department and the Respiratory Health Association are also offer-Â ing ways to achieve quit-Â ting. â€œCourage to Quitâ€? is a comprehensive treat-Â ment program for adults. Lung Chicago is where \RXFDQĂ€QGDSURJUDP near you to attend. Another, which focus-Â es on online support, is the â€œEX Planâ€?. You can plan out your journey to quitting and receive great tips and point-Â ers along the way. Lastly, there is the Il-Â linois Tobacco â€œQuitlineâ€? where anyone can call IRUDERRVWRIFRQĂ€GHQFH as they strive for their goals against smoking. There are obviously nu-Â merous places students, staff, and DuPage resi-Â dents can turn to when it comes to quitting tobacco.

After the passing of the tobacco ban that was set in place on Aug. 6, the college also set up resources for students to quit and included the giveaways of stress balls shaped as turkeys, motivating students to quit. â€œWe are primarily here to always educate and direct you to the right path,â€? commented
Timothy Ziman, Stu-Â dent Leadership Coun-Â cil Vice President. The college along with
684 other colleges around the country, took a huge step this year towards a clean air initiative.

The Chaparral wom-Â enâ€™s soccer team rallied back from a two point GHĂ€FLWWRWLH0RUWRQ Panthers 3-Â3 Tuesday. The teams both came out energized, but were slightly slowed down due to the heat and fatigue. â€œThe conditions were GLIĂ€FXOWLWZDVYHU\ hot,â€?

Zakowski said.
The renovations are VFKHGXOHGWREHĂ€QLVKHG by spring semester of 2014, but until that time, students and faculty as well as coaches and players must adjust to some temporary changes. Several PE class-Â rooms have moved over to west campus, as has the weight room and Ă€WQHVVODEZKLFKDUH currently located in the OCC building. The football team has changing rooms while the locker rooms are under construction, but there are no showers. Also, with the arena closing Dec. 15, one of the biggest question marks
the PE department faces is where the basketball teams and other sports teams that begin in the winter will play. â€œWe talked to the coach-Â es in length and kind of warned them, this is going to be a tough year and a half while weâ€™re gone,â€? Zakowski said. Despite the momen-Â tary inconveniences, Zakowski believes the revamped building will be worth the wait. â€œOur goal is that when a student comes to cam-Â pus to take a tour, Iâ€™d want the PE building WREHHLWKHUWKHĂ€UVW stop or the last on the tour,â€? Zakowski said.
