The library located in the SRC made loud noises the past week as construction began late this year.

Fall enrollment up College boasts 1.4 percent increase for Fall semester JORDIN GIGNAC NEWS EDITOR

Tenth day enrollment was discussed and the 1.4 percent increase was celebrated at the board meeting Sept. 20. Associate Vice Presi-­ dent of Enrollment Man-­ agement, Earl Dowling, made a presentation showing the increasing numbers of students who enrolled this fall. Dowling said that many VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FJURXSVRIVWX-­

dents were increased in the enrollment percent-­ ages, especially incoming high school students, reverse transfer stu-­ dents and veterans. Although there were many other groups of students that increased the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment numbers, it is starting to focus more on grabbing the attention of the 19-­ 24 year olds enrolling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of our vision is to be this districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice for [education],â&#x20AC;? Dowling said. Dowling explained that he noticed parents approv-­ LQJRIWKHFROOHJHDVDĂ&#x20AC;UVW choice for their students to

Dowling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get-­ ting general education out of the way was a must.â&#x20AC;? Dowling said that the college is seeing good signs from enrollment in all areas and that in-­ cludes the decreases from part-­time enrollments. Dowling also sees more students making COD feel more like a four-­year college be-­ cause of the increase of full-­time students. See FTE, Page 3

to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We received input from surveys, staff forums and questions we posted to students on a public wall about what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see in the library,â&#x20AC;? Stock said.

The libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reconstruc-­ tion spending came from the referendum budget of $168 million and will cost a total of $33.4 million to complete. The project is expected to be completed in June of 2013.

COURIER POLICY The Courier is published every Friday when classes are in session during the Fall and Spring Semes-­ WHUH[FHSWIRUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW and 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. One copy free, additional copies available on request. Views expressed in editorials represent opin-­ ions of the majority of the Editorial Board, made up of all the Courier editors. The Courier does not knowingly accept adver-­ tisement that discriminate on the basis of sex, creed, religion, color, handi-­ capped 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 com-­ munity 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 authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day-­ time phone number. The editor-­in-­chief may withhold the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name on request. Deliver all correspondence to BIC 3401 between regular RIĂ&#x20AC;FHKRXUVRUPDLOWRWKH Courier, College of DuP-­ age, 425 Fawell Blvd., Glen Ellyn, ILL. 60137. Letters also may be sent by e-­mail.

EDITORIAL Bring your issues to us Help us, help you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a delicate ecosys-­ tem. The college wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here without the students, and the stu-­ dents wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here without the college, but it goes beyond that. Faculty has a voice through the College of DuPage Faculty Associ-­ ation, as well as much more contact with admin-­ istration than the average commuting student to voice their opinions, con-­ cerns and questions, but faculty, administration and community feedback are all welcome as well. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the Courier is here. As the student newspaper, we do our best to cover campus events, QHZVDQGIXQFWLRQVWRĂ&#x20AC;QG out the answers to the questions you have but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it by ourselves. Students and faculty have come up to nu-­ merous editors to either

praise or question the paper, and the feedback helps, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough. When asked if they want to write a letter to the editor, or even be quoted in the newspaper, the answer we hear most often is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The lack of participation, including other groups, campus activities and events has previously been dis-­ cussed, but this is moving into a different realm. As seven part-­time stu-­ dent employees of the col-­ lege, we work as the staff to get the information out into the public, but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover everything that happens on the 273 acres that may involve part of the 27,034 full and part time students that the college caters to. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where you come in; let us know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on and what inter-­ ests you. Did the tobacco ban or construction affect

you at all? Did the BIC South stairs opening allow you to get to class earlier than before? Instead of complaining to your friend about how much it sucks to have the ban, while sneaking a cigarette between classes, come up to BIC 3401 and talk to an editor about it. ,QDGGLWLRQWRRIĂ&#x20AC;FH hours, we also have e-­mails and phones, but Facebook and Twitter can also be utilized to contact us, as well as the web-­ VLWHZKHQLWLVĂ&#x20AC;QDOL]HG Student involvement lets us not only know what is going on, but how it affects the school and student population as a whole. It will also allow us, the Courier staff, to get a better hold on what is important to the student population. All of our contact in-­ formation is available, and during most stan-­

dard business hours there will be at least RQHSHUVRQLQWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FH to talk to who can pass the information on to wherever it needs to go. $VWKLVLVRXUĂ&#x20AC;IWKLVVXH of the year, there has been a lone letter to the HGLWRULQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWLVVXH and nothing since. The opinion section is just that; opinions. It gives the students, fac-­ ulty and community a public forum to discuss topics and share concerns or comments, and if it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being utilized prop-­ erly, it is being wasted. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more coverage on new campus policies or the best plac-­ es to study or relax on campus, let us know. As Jason Gann said on the FX hit show â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wilfredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is connect-­ ed to everything.â&#x20AC;?

Decision 2012: Students register to vote ROSALIE DEASTIS ?>:MNK>L>=BMHK

DAWN Voter Advo-­ cates is DuPage Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest voter registra-­ tion organization. Members meet monthly and are committed to vot-­ er education and ensuring every eligible citizen is registered to vote. They have registered thousands of voters, including stu-­ dents and young America. This past Tuesday was National Voter Registra-­ tion Day, and to celebrate that, DAWN worked with the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stu-­ dent Leadership Council to come to the college and empower students to get informed with the voting process by hold-­ ing a table where stu-­ dents, staff, faculty, and visitors can register. Anyone was able to walk up to the table and register as long as they are a citizen and have WZRIRUPVRILGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;FD-­ tion proving they will be at least 18 by Nov. 6. According to National-­ VoterRegistrationDay. org, six million Amer-­

On Tuesday, volun-­ teers, celebrities, and organizations (such as DAWN) â&#x20AC;&#x153;hit the streetsâ&#x20AC;? of the U.S. to register voters and create a wide-­ spread awareness. ´:HGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\QRWLFHG

so much enthusiasm from students this year,â&#x20AC;? com-­ mented Diane Kalousek, a DAWN volunteer who helped run the table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a whole new batch of people who want-­ ed to vote and we were happy to see so many interested students.â&#x20AC;? The voting process is also surprisingly easy, according to DAWN.

As long you show your SURRIRILGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;FDWLRQ when you register and you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t register online, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to bring DQ\IRUPVRILGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;FD-­ tion on Election Day.

Spotlight on Wheat Cafe: LONDON SUMMERS PHOTO EDITOR

The Culinary and Hospi-­ tality Center displays the architecture and design that went into the build-­ ing to all of its patrons. Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Hotel, Water Leaf Restaurant, and Wheat CafĂŠ, all of which are fairly new additions to the campus, H[HPSOLI\WKHĂ&#x20AC;QHGLQ-­ ing and accommodations available on campus. The Wheat CafĂŠ, having been open for one year, is an American style cuisine restaurant that features a more relaxed and casual vibe than the Water Leaf Restaurant, which can EHFRQVLGHUHGĂ&#x20AC;QHGLQLQJ The restaurant is reser-­ vation only, but walk-­ins are accepted, pending on remaining available space. This is partly due to space constraints. Also the restaurant only operates when a class is in session. James Mulyk, the Faculty advisor of the restaurant says that cafĂŠ is capable of seating â&#x20AC;&#x153;60, which we are always striving to hit, because the more guests we bring in the better the learning ex-­ perience for the students.â&#x20AC;? The restaurant also features an exterior patio, which has a capacity of around 24 guests. The cafĂŠâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time slots for reser-­ vations are; Wednesdays 6:45, 7:00, and 7:15 p.m. and also on Thursday and Friday times to set res-­ ervations are for 11:15, 11:30, and 11:45 when classes are in session. 7KHĂ&#x20AC;YHFRXUVHGLQQHUV are priced at $22, while the four course lunch-­ es are priced at $15. The entire restaurant is run by students who are WDNLQJVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FFXOLQDU\ courses. The students who operate the Wheat CafĂŠ are doing so as an actual class with educational SXUSRVHWRWKHLUĂ&#x20AC;HOG Therefore all the mon-­ ey and tips collected are put directly back into the restaurant to fund its upkeep such as new addi-­ tions to the menu and dĂŠ-­ cor items. For reservations visit the Wheat Cafe web-­ site or call (630)-­942-­2284.

WDCB Making Waves

WDCB Public Radio, 90.9 FM will move from the OCC building to the SRC in January COURTNEY CLARK

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR

WDCB Public Ra-­ dio, 90.9 FM, current-­ ly housed in the OCC building is moving to a new facility in the 65&EHJLQQLQJWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW week of January. It will be located on the lower level of the SRC, past the book-­ store, and across the hall from the new fash-­ ion department area. The move will result in two new production facilities instead of the one they have now. They will also be converting from a hybrid digital analog environment to an all-­digital environment. Scott Wager, the sta-­ tion manager, says this change will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;more conducive to the kind of work they are doingâ&#x20AC;? and that the current equip-­ ment has lasted well beyond the predicted life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(We have been) in-­ volved in the planning process for at least seven years or so, but it gained momentum in the last few years,â&#x20AC;? Wager said. The technical core will remain in the OCC for a while until the new space is ready for use and the staff has been trained to use the new system, including its 30 community volunteers. The move will include transporting their very large collection of com-­ pact discs and vinyl records. Wager says they started building the vinyl library in 1975 and have been constantly building and adding to it. They maintain vinyl records because many of these recordings never make it into compact disc form and a database is used to keep track of everything. There is also an Inter-­ net-­based sports channel called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chaparral Sports Channelâ&#x20AC;? that is student run. Wager says the â&#x20AC;&#x153;staff will be very enthu-­ siastic about it; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very exciting period for us.â&#x20AC;? He is â&#x20AC;&#x153;looking forward to the integration of our

unit knitted into the fabric of the institutionâ&#x20AC;? VLQFHWKHLURIĂ&#x20AC;FHVZLOO now be located on the main campus area. Although primarily a jazz station, Wager said â&#x20AC;&#x153;when people hear weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re jazz, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some preconceptions but we have a lot going on here.â&#x20AC;? For example, Monday night is Celtic music night and Tuesday night includes a folk music program. They are also starting a program called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sounds of Brazilâ&#x20AC;? next Wednesday at 7pm. A lot of the time they even have guest per-­ formers on the show. Wager said that often the performers are from around here because â&#x20AC;&#x153;we believe in localism as far as our product base is concerned.â&#x20AC;? They have three chan-­ nels which are controlled in one server room. One of these additional chan-­ nels includes a Spanish public radio operation. They also attend Chi-­ cago Jazz Festival, Blues Festival, and Hyde Park Music Festival in addi-­ tion to having one show a month at the Jazz showcase in Chicago. They have been on the air since 1977 and have listenership around the world.including Japan, the Nether-­ lands and Germany. On their 36th year on air, Wager says the â&#x20AC;&#x153;audience continues to grow, (weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve) seen a lot of change over the years.â&#x20AC;? They now stream mu-­ sic on the internet and have a mobile applica-­ tion available for people to listen on the go. COD is also the only community college in the state with a radio station like this and it is the only station that offers full jazz content in the Chicago land area. Wager says the existence RIWKHVWDWLRQ´IXOĂ&#x20AC;OOVWKH dream of the people who founded this institution.â&#x20AC;?

Art at west campus Art teachers and students talk transition from the MAC to the K and OCC Buildings COURTNEY CLARK

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR

The McAninch Arts Center will soon be going under construc-­ tion until Spring 2014, which means many teachers and students have to travel to the K Building on the West side of campus. The K Building is very old and cramped com-­ pared to the newer and bigger MAC building. 0DUD%DNHUDĂ&#x20AC;QHDUWV professor said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The K EXLOGLQJLVGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\ challenging, the class-­ rooms are smaller and not ideal for running studio classes. However, the faculty and students have been making the best of the situation.â&#x20AC;? There are many stu-­ dents dreading the long, cold walks from the K Building to the BIC in winter. Sam Ragusin, a graph-­ ic design student says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The atmosphere (in the K building) doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t inspire me at all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

The music faculty is â&#x20AC;&#x153;certain that the recent and unexpected dismiss-­ al of critical Technical Theater staff in the MAC/ College Performing Arts area (shortly after the move itself) will negative-­ ly impact our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to expect the highest in profession-­ al standards when it comes to the backstage operations of College Theater and Music pro-­ ductions of all type.â&#x20AC;?

Chaps tame wildcats M^Zfk^[hng]l_khfmhn`akhZ]ehll%l\hk^ll^o^gmhn\a]hpglbg[ehphnmob\mhkr AUSTIN SLOTT

SPORTS EDITOR

The Chaparral football team put on a dominating performance in Satur-­ dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 49-­21 win against the North Dakota State Science Wildcats. The Chaps were coming off of an ugly loss to then two ranked Iowa Western, 65-­21, and were eager to erase the game from their memories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You play the number two team in the country and make some mistakes early, it ends up like that,â&#x20AC;? Head Coach Gary Thomas said. According to Thomas, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game plan for North Dakota was to out-­ play them defensively and in special teams and to run the ball on offense. For the most part, the team was able to stick to this game plan, but still made the adjustments when necessary. The Chaps wasted no time building momentum, as linebacker Michael Lafenhagen blocked the Wildcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; punt on their Ă&#x20AC;UVWGULYH Fired up by the big play on special teams, the Chaps marched down the Ă&#x20AC;HOGWRVFRUHRQUXQQLQJ back Tyreis Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sev-­ en yard touchdown run and never looked back. After rushing touch-­ downs by running backs

The Wildcats answered with a touchdown pass of their own but it was ev-­ ident that the game was becoming a blowout. The frustration seemed to be getting to the Wild-­ cats as they began com-­ mitting avoidable delay of game penalties and were clearly out of sync.

It reached the point where coaches on the sideline had to yell out the time on the play clock in order to urge the of-­ fense to hike the ball. ,WZDVDĂ&#x20AC;UVWKDOIWRIRU-­ get for the Wildcats, but one to build upon for the Chaps. The Wildcats struck quickly in the second half, taking a 65 yard end around to the house and bringing the lead down to two touchdowns. But the Chaps made sure that North Dakotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

hopes for a comeback were short lived. Johnny Holton returned the en-­ suing kickoff for a touch-­ down to make the score 35-­14. With the second half in full swing and a com-­ fortable lead, the Chapsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense stepped to close the game out. They forced three straight drives by North Dakota to end with turn-­ over on downs, becoming more pumped up with each stop. The Chaps offense

of the rain but we managed to pass and get the good job done.â&#x20AC;? But they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done yet, Striker Inga Tebbe added two more goals to the lead in the

second half. Just as impressive as the offen-­ sive surge was the clean sheet by goalkeeper Raquel Salinas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like the Blackhawks, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for the hot goalie and hopefully we can make a run with her,â&#x20AC;? Fajkus said. Their second game in as many days was against the Rochester Yellowjackets . Unlike Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, in which the Chaps scored goal after goal, Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game remained score-­ less for nearly the entire two halves. Just when it seemed to be go-­ ing to over time, Tebbe scored a last minute goal to win the game for the Chaps, 1-­0. The Lady Chaps will hit the road next to play at Oakton, Monday Oct. 1.

ok, so my subs really aren't gourmet and we're not french either. my subs just taste a little better, that's all! I wanted to call it jimmy john's tasty sandwiches, but my mom told me to stick with gourmet. She thinks whatever I do is gourmet, but i don't think either of us knows what it means. so let's stick with tasty!

21 attempts for 118 yards and a touchdown. Coach Thomas believes this game was an important step up for the Ivy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patrick managed the game pretty well today, it was a huge step forward for him,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. Despite the win, Thomas high-­ lighted the mistakes that the team made during the game and emphasized the importance of minimizing these. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play fundamen-­ tally sound in a lot of different areasâ&#x20AC;Ś we have to cut these mistakes out,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. The team is now back to being nationally ranked in the Nation-­ al Junior College Athletic Asso-­ ciation (NJCAA) poll, coming in at number 16. The Chaps will become road warriors for their next three games, playing each of their next three opponents away from home, starting with Ellsworth on Saturday Sept. 29. Coach Thomas was asked if the multiple road games will have any effect on the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to gauge our road experience on the Iowa Western game,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get too far ahead of myself; we have to take it game by game.â&#x20AC;?
