Report finds increase in sexual assault on campus WSU PD captain said one individual reported 12 incidents of sexual assault during one month By Jayce Carral and Luke Hudson Evergreen reporters
In 2018, there was a 150 percent increase in reported sexual assaults on WSU property as compared to 2017, according to the 2019 WSU Clery Report. This crime and safety report is compiled every year by universities and is required under the Clery Act. The act also orders universities to outline their campus safety and violence prevention efforts, according to the Clery Center website. Mike Larsen, captain of the WSU Police Department, said the crime statistics from the Clery Report are gathered by the records department and himself. He said he goes through all incident reports for the year and counts the number of
incidents that are listed under what he calls “Clery crimes.” He said Clery crimes include incidents such as manslaughter, sexual assault, burglary and arson. After counting the incidents, he checks whether the crimes occurred on campus and within the Clery geography. This includes everything on campus and any property owned by WSU, he said. It also includes the housing of sororities and fraternities that are on campus and within good standing with WSU, Larsen said. “I go back and essentially add those reported incidents, and then that’s how those numbers are calculated,” he said. Larsen said the statistics gathered in the process are submitted to the Office of Civil Rights Compliance and Investigation, which creates

the Clery Report. Fourteen cases of dating violence were reported in 2018, and three were reported in 2017, according to the report. Larsen said the Clery definitions of dating violence and domestic violence are very similar. He said dating violence is a reported incident of violence committed by a person against another in which they share a social, romantic or intimate relationship. The incident is filed under dating violence unless it results in a felony or misdemeanor arrest, in which case it would be filed under domestic violence, he said. Under Washington law, the term dating violence does not exist. Larsen said the reason the number of sexual assaults has increased is because of several incidents involving one individual. He said the individual reported to CRCI that she had been in an abusive relation-
ship in which she was sexually assaulted about three times per week during a four-week period. For that specific case, Larsen said he called the Clery help desk and explained the situation. He was told to report each sexual assault as a separate incident. “Since the incidents have been reported, whether it’s in detail or whether it’s vague, we have to count that information,” he said. Larsen said in some sexual assault cases, the individual reporting the crime sometimes does not want to go forward with an investigation. “Regardless of the crime, I would hope that a victim would feel comfortable coming forward and reporting,” he said. Every on-campus residence hall practiced more fire drills in 2018 than in both 2017 and 2016, according to the report. Fire Chief Mike Heston said
fire alarm drills are conducted at least twice a year for all dorms. He said the drills are conducted in the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. Dorm drills are conducted consecutively in several dorms in one night. Drills on campus are conducted during the day, he said. This timeline maximizes the number of people who experience the drills. “Alarms are your best friend to alert you to get you out of the building. The sprinklers are your best friend to keep you from burning up,” he said. “If all those things are working, you have a pretty good opportunity to get out.” The fire department will inspect dorms for possible fire hazards such as door and wall decorations, he said.

Student empowers native youth
Mammograms are used to look for early signs of breast cancer By Lauren Ellenbecker Evergreen reporter
Whitman County Hospital is offering a free lunch to patients who get a mammogram in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To shed light on breast cancer, the Whitman Hospital & Medical Center is providing a lunch voucher that can be used in the hospital’s food court, as well as a free breast cancer awareness shirt for those getting a mammogram at the hospital, said Laurie Gronning, WHMC public relations officer. A mammogram is an X-ray picture of a person’s breasts and is used to look for early signs of breast cancer and other breast diseases, according to the WHMC website. All women between 35 and 40 years old should have a baseline screening mammogram and should have an annual screening afterwards, according to the site. Screenings are typically completely covered by most insurances, Gronning said, but there are some programs that can financially assist those seeking breast health services. The hospital has been offering this specific promotion since 2010, she said, and the number of people seeking mammograms from WHMC has increased since then. “The response from the community has been fantastic,” Gronning said.

New club called Natives in Media empowers members to enter multimedia fields
By Loren Negron Evergreen reporter
WSU student is serving her Native American community through her passion for digital technology and media, and working to empowering Native American youths to use podcasts to share their own stories. Kyra Antone, senior digital
technology and culture major, is a member of the Coeur d’Alene and Tohono O’odham tribes. Growing up on the reservations, Antone said she struggled to find a mentor who was in her field of interest. She also did not see fair representation of her people in media. This inspired her to go back to her community and use her passion for digital technology to empower youths. “You could be talking to a room of people and maybe reach just one person. But you reached that one person,” she said. “I think it’s important

Corrections The article titled “Bennett takes flight in Eugene” that appeared in Monday’s paper incorrectly said graduate student Ella Dederick received her seventh shutout of the year. Dederick has six shutouts and one shared shutout for the season. An article in Wednesday’s paper titled “Biannual political debate ends in handshake” incorrectly stated that Hannah Martian said 3 percent of the funds Planned Parenthood used to receive from Title X went towards abortions. Three percent of the services the organization provides are abortions. Tanner Elliott’s name was also corrected for spelling. The secondary headline in the “Students address decision to not retry Hargraves” article published in Wednesday’s paper incorrectly stated that members of ASWSU are calling for a retrial of Hargraves. ASWSU fully supports the victim’s decision to not testify again.

Students discuss cultural appropriation
Groups host panel, discuss issues with insensitive costumes By Andrea Gonzalez Evergreen reporter
The Native American Women’s Association held a panel to address cultural appropriation in collaboration with La Hermandad De O eMe Te. Jaissa Grunlose, fourthyear marketing major with an indigenous studies minor, said the goal is to bring awareness to the WSU community about how cultural appropriation affects multicultural communities. Grunlose said the organization wanted people to get more comfortable and stand up for others when they see instances of cultural appropriation. “Halloween is a difficult time for natives because costumes and our culture is something people are dressed up as,” she said. It’s important to address the issue because cultural appropriation has real consequences, and it hurts a lot of people, she said. The sexualization of native women leads to costumes, which leads to the dehumanization and to the terrible statistics of missing and murdered Indigeneous women, Grunlose said. “Native women are murdered at higher rates and I think cultural appropriation is one reason for that,” she said. It’s important for people to take the time to learn the history behind different traditions and cultures so they can understand why cultures shouldn’t be worn as a costume, Grunlose said.
KYLIE FRAZIER | THE DAILY
Students speak about how some Halloween costumes are examples of cultural appropriation, and not appropriate to wear for Halloween, on Wednesday evening at the Smith Center for Undergraduate Education. Maria Arteaga, senior anthropology and Spanish double major, said people who belong to the culture being appropriated will continue to go through all the challenges. It’s not well intended if someone is appropriating someone else’s culture, she said. It also makes people seem uneducated, Arteaga said. “I can say I’m Mexican, and
I’m not bothered by this but one person cannot represent an entire culture,” she said. Dominick Joseph, junior strategic communications major, said cultural appropriation is something people should not do even if they are a person of color. Kamapolani Garcia, sophomore elementary education major, said celebrities should
not be given a pass on cultural appropriation either. People should not be afraid to speak up even if it is their friends. Not correcting people does not fix the problem, Garcia said. Kaitlin Srader, junior sociology major, said WSU students are not very aware of cultural appropriation and the surrounding issues.
Srader said it was upsetting to see a person wearing a headdress out on Greek Row last year. “If you’re appropriating, you can take the costume off at the end of the day but the person in these cultural communities, they can’t take off the police brutality, racial profiling, and the generational trauma,” she said.
WSU PD addresses Hargraves’ trial, campus arrests
NICOLE LIU | THE DAILY EVERGREEN
WSU Police Sgt. Dawn Daniels answers questions about the decision to not retry the sexual misconduct case during an ASWSU meeting Wednesday in the CUB.
Senate approves joint resolution to call for amendment to EP 15 By Jakob Thorington Evergreen reporter
WSU Police Department Administrative Sgt. Dawn Daniels spoke as a guest during last night’s ASWSU Senate
meeting and gave an update about the former Pullman Police Sgt. Jerry Daniel Hargraves’ trial regarding sexual misconduct. Daniels said the victim does not want to participate any further and to her understanding, the case has been dismissed. “It’s completely her right, and I completely respect her
and understand why she wouldn’t want to appear in court,” Daniels said. ASWSU President Quinton Berkompas said the results of the case were disappointing but completely supported the case not being retried. “The victim’s intentions need to be the number one priority in this situation,” he said.
Daniels also discussed the investigation WSU’s Office of Civil Rights Compliance and Investigation is conducting on the WSU Police Department regarding arrest rates of black students. She said the department opened their computers to CRCI before The Daily Evergreen article that reported the rates of arrest was published. “We’re still waiting for them to finish,” she said. Daniels explained to the Senate how the department issues citations. She said she talked to Berkompas and ASWSU Vice President Jhordin Prescott about officers’ discretion with arrests and how the arrest process works. “All of our cases are open to community standards because we’re all university officials,” she said. “The idea behind that is educational resources and everything else that we need for our students to succeed.” She said her office also has the option to forward charges to the prosecutor’s office, where most misdemeanor drug and alcohol charges are referred to. Students with no prior convictions can go through a permit system in which the prosecutor’s office gives the student a limited unsupervised probation period, Daniels said. “As long as they don’t get arrested within that time frame, it basically doesn’t exist
as an arrest,” she said. ASWSU Senator Jocelyn Granados said Black Student Union President Makayia Thompson and the rest of the WSU community should be asked for feedback about what they want done and be kept in the loop. “If that was supposed to fix something and it’s already in place and its not fixing it, then something else has to be the solution,” Thompson said. “I don’t know what that solution is, but that’s them—they can find that out.” The Senate passed a joint resolution between ASWSU and GPSA calling for “Citizenship and Immigration Status” as a protected class in WSU’s Executive Policy 15. The policy covers discrimination and protected class policy at WSU. According to the resolution, over 500 undocumented students attend WSU, and the WSU Student Affairs’ Initiatives includes a commitment that the university is an undocumented student-friendly institution. Matthew Sutherland, GPSA vice president of legislative affairs, said his department is looking to voice strong student support to administrators to change the policy. “This is a huge step in actually making this really happen by the end of this year,” Sutherland said.

Art studio hosts Halloween themed painting event Wild at Art provides space for children to share creativity By Madysen McLain Evergreen reporter
The Wild at Art studio opens its doors for a Halloween-themed event including cocoa, treats and painting at the Kids, Cocoa & Canvas event on Saturday. Donald Stanziano, coowner of Wild at Art, said he will create a step-by-step
template that participants can follow while painting. “We have a saying: ‘going rogue,’” he said. “We encourage people to be independent.” Stanziano will talk to guests about how he created the template and what techniques he used. Participants can also enjoy Halloween-themed treats, music and cocoa, Stanziano said. Tickets cost $25 for one person, $45 for two and $15 for each additional partici-
pant after two people, he said. Those interested must purchase tickets on the Wild at Art website prior to the event. The event is open to everyone, whether someone has kids or not, he said. Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult, but they don’t need any painting experience to come to have fun. “We’re not walking them through the painting brushstroke by brushstroke,”
Stanziano said. Joan Hofmann, co-owner and Stanziano’s wife, created Wild at Art in 2005 after she wanted to give her three children, who were not interested in sports, something to do, Stanziano said. Hofmann previously owned a pottery studio in California, Stanziano said. Wild at Art hosts private canvas, glass and pottery painting parties. The studio has held parties for WSU
sororities, Merry Cellars Winery and an alpaca ranch, as well as public events like Kids, Cocoa & Canvas, he said. The Wild at Art studio in Moscow, 118 E. 3rd St., will open its doors at 9:30 a.m., and painting will begin at 10 a.m. on Oct. 26. When the event on Saturday is finished around noon, the studio will open to the public for anyone who would like to paint, he said.
Students invited to India Night for food, culture, fun Saturday event educates attendees on how other nations celebrate By Joel Kemegue Evergreen reporter
The Indian Student Association is putting on India Night this Sunday from 5 - 9 p.m., where students can come and experience Indian culture, food and entertainment. The night will showcase performances from across India including music, dances and skits, as well as different Indian cuisines. “Every state has its own unique dance forms, unique languages,” said Vivek Amrutiya, one of the vice presidents of ISA. “We are just trying to show that unity and diversity in presenting our country at WSU.” With the night, attendees can expect to see performances like kathakali and bharatanatyam dances, bhangra music, different foods such as chana masala and tandoori chicken, and a raffle with the chance to win some prizes. This year, India night also falls on the first night of Diwali, the festival of lights and one of the biggest celebrations in India. The ISA has been hosting India Night for “long enough”, said Amit Bandyopadhyay, chair professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering and one of ISA’s advisors, or at least since he came to WSU in 1997. Bandyopadhyay said India Night serves as a chance to bring Indian culture to Pullman, especially during such an important celebration. “This time of year is like Christmastime in India and here in Pullman there is nothing,” Bandyopadhyay said . “ So it’s kind of a platform to bring those cultural events to the community here.” Every year India Night has served as an opportunity for WSU and Pullman’s Indian community to meet and celebrate their culture. For members like Amrutiya and Reetwika Basu, Informational Technology Coordinator for ISA, the night is always

“Every state has its own unique fance forms, unique languages,” said Vivek Amrutiya, vice president of ISA. a great place to meet and talk to Indian students. “We have a huge number of Indian students in Pullman,” Basu said. “It’s always great to have this event where everyone can come together and get to know other people from the same country.” Susmita Bose, chair professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering and the ISA’s other advisor, said that India Night also brings together not just the students, but Pullman’s entire Indian community. “For Indian families it’s very important for the next generation to see what we do back home,” Bose said. Basu said for those who aren’t Indian and less familiar with the culture, India Night can serve as a learning experience and a chance to get a deeper
look into the cultural makeup of India. This year the ISA has put more emphasis on getting more culturally diverse performances from different parts of India, something that might’ve been lacking in previous India Nights, she said. “We’re trying to project Indian culture to someone who is alien to it,” Amrutiya said. “So someone can get a sense of what India is like without going to India.” India Night is on Sunday, October 27th from 5-9 p.m. in the Gladish Community and Cultural Center. It is $5 for students and $10 for non-students and tickets can be paid online or in person. “So what can you expect?” Bandyopadhyay asks. “A good, vibrant cultural celebration with good food.”

Orton maze opens Friday and Saturday Resident haunted house pays homage to scary movie By Cheryl Aarnio Evergreen reporter
A grayish-green skull perched atop a piano bares its teeth at the ceiling. To its right stands a candelabra, fake blood streaming down it. A disassembled skeleton rests inside of the piano. This is part of Pennywise’s lair in Orton Haunted Hall maze, a haunted house on the 12th floor of Orton Hall, said Grace Shauvin, vice president for Orton Hall Leadership Council. This year’s theme is ‘IT and His Friends,’ recognizing the new “IT Chapter Two” movie that was released in September, Shauvin said. People will enter the maze, lit only by floor lights, and come across different characters from horror movies, leading up to the encounter with Pennywise in his lair, Shauvin said. A member of the Leadership Council will be playing the piano for part of the event, adding to the haunted house effect by playing creepy music, said Andy Adler, Orton Hall residential education director. Shauvin said for the rest of the time, there will be a speaker playing eerie music. The Leadership Council is hosting the Haunted Hall, marking its 23rd year, Adler said.
Each year, the Haunted Hall is different. One year, there was an insane asylum theme. In past years, they have hosted laser tag and escape room activities. In its first year, actors used a chainsaw with the blades taken off, which would not be permitted now, Adler said. No one on the Leadership Council had experience hosting the event before this year, Shauvin said. Adler said, “We’re going to try our best to make it scary, also understanding the fact that it might not be scary for everyone.” It is suggested that people donate one non-perishable canned food item or $1, he said. The canned food will be donated to Rosario’s Place, and the money will go toward the Leadership Council, which will offset the cost of putting on the event and can be used for future events, Adler said. The Leadership Council uses the Haunted Hall as a way to collect canned food for food banks, donating to different ones, Adler said. People should be aware that there will be strobe lights, which can cause CAROLYNN CLAREY | THE DAILY EVERGREEN seizures, he said. The Haunted Hall will be open from Orton Hall RED Andy Adler and Grace Shauvin, Orton Hall 8 p.m.-12 a.m. both Friday and Saturday Ledership Council Vice President talk about what goes in at Orton Hall. hosting the Orton Haunted House on Monday afternoon.

For those interested in food at the event, Hunga Dunga Brewery will be selling tacos and beer. Apple cider from Wilson Banner Ranch can be purchased with a donation. Curet said the event has something for both students and families with children. “We’ve got a bunch of kid-specific activities, highlighting our nature school that we have on the facility,” Huston Bell said. Face painting and a touch table with earthworms are a few of the exhibits for children, Huston Bell said. The event is completely free for participants, though donations are welcome, Huston Bell said. “We have done this event for cost in the past and all proceeds went to our education program,” Huston Bell said. “What we try to do now is make it no cost, the public is welcome to come … any donations benefit our education program.” Event parking is very limited, Curet said, but there will be a free shuttle leaving every 20 minutes starting at 5 p.m. from the Rosauers parking lot. Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute is located at 1040 Rodeo Drive in Moscow.
Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute is hosting its 12th annual Animals of the Night event from 5–8 p.m. Friday in Moscow. The free event will take place at PCEI’s 26-acre nature center, said Program Director Heather Huston Bell. Animals of the Night will host expert educators from WSU, UI and other local organizations, Huston Bell said. “We find a ton of community members that are really passionate about something,” said Frankie Curet, assistant program coordinator and AmeriCorps volunteer. Huston Bell said the event is set up as a circuit and the first area participants walk through is a spider and amphibian exhibit. PCEI’s newly completed greenhouse is the next stop for event participants, where they will have the opportunity to interact with different educators at their tables, Huston Bell said. “You can just wander through this large exhibit … learning about canines and felines from the Wolf Education and Research Center,” Huston Bell said. The greenhouse will also have facilitated exhibits about bats, beavers, skunks and raccoons, Huston Bell said. The last stop on the event circuit is the raptor area, Huston Bell said. WSU’s Raptor Club will showcase some of their birds for participants at this location.

Several local businesses are sponsoring the event and Wimer said it has received a lot of community support. “It was one of those things that was just a little spark with the staff and then a lot of our business partners were super stoked and jumped on board,” Wimer said. Wimer said children are welcome at the event, but parents should instruct them on animal safety. “We do have some tips on our Facebook event for how to prepare your dog for their costume,” Wimer said. “Same with the kids, how to make sure the

Wimer said the money raised from the event goes to the Humane Society’s Merlin fund, which benefits animals who need lifesaving surgeries. “[The fund is] what allows us to do surgeries that otherwise we wouldn’t be able to do, where euthanasia would be the only other option,” Wimer said. “It really supports the lifesaving measures we do here at the shelter.”

WSU won in last two games against Colorado; Buffs are on eight-game losing streak this season By Shayne Taylor Evergreen reporter
The No. 24 WSU volleyball team will face the University of Colorado Buffaloes at 6 tonight in Boulder, Colorado. WSU (16-4, 5-3) heads into this matchup coming off a 3-2 loss to Arizona State University on Sunday but have won four of the last five games. Colorado’s last contest resulted in a 3-2 road loss to California at the Haas Pavilion. The Buffaloes (8-10, 0-8) are on an eight-game losing streak.
WSU has defeated Colorado the last two times they have met. Both wins were by a score of 3-1. WSU has also been victors in four of the last five matches dating back to November of 2016. Alexis Dirige, senior defensive specialist and libero, finished with 22 digs against ASU and is eight digs away from breaking the all-time WSU record. Freshmen outside hitter Pia Timmer led the Cougars in that match with 14 kills and posted an ace and a block in the ASU game. Timmer leads the team with 198 kills.
Penny Tusa, junior outside hitter and setter, was second on the team with 13 kills. Freshmen outside hitter Alexcis Lusby was another Cougar who recorded double digit kills with 11, third most on the team. Lusby led the team with eight blocks in the match against Arizona State. Tying Lusby with 11 kills was freshmen Magda Jehlárová, who also made 4 blocks. Jehlárová is sixth in the nation with 1.51 blocks per set. Jehlárová has 20 solo blocks and has assisted on 87, which leads the team. In a press conference held on Tuesday, head coach Jen Greeny said that there was a handful of upsides, but overall the Cougars failed to match
the intensity of ASU. She said it was a learning experience for the team. No matter what the records show in this conference the Pac-12 is continuously competitive, Greeny said. “Even though Colorado’s record is not showing just how good they are, they are a really tough team,” Greeny said. “From top to bottom this conference is unbelievable every single weekend.” Colorado leads the all-time series 10-6 over the Cougars since 1999. WSU will look to get back on a winning streak against Colorado. The match will begin at 6 tonight in the CU Events Center in Boulder, Colorado. The game can be viewed on Pac-12 Plus Live Stream.
S o cc er pl a ys Trojans , Bruin s in L os A nge l e s Cougars have not defeated USC in six years; game today By Jaclyn Seifert Evergreen reporter
After an important win against Oregon last Saturday, No. 19 WSU soccer will travel to play No. 7 University of Southern California Trojans Thursday at McAlister Field in a Top-25 showdown. The weekend of soccer will be long as the Cougars additionally travel to play the No. 18 University of California, Los Angeles Bruins Sunday. WSU (10-3-1, 3-2-1) made its way back up on the Top-25 United Soccer Coaches poll after falling last week. “These two games are just huge for us. We don’t really have anything to lose so we are going to come out against these ranked teams with a lot of energy and a lot of will power. I feel like our
team will be ready,” junior forward Elyse Bennett said. Graduate student goalkeeper Ella Dederick had her sixth season shutout and 26th in her career. She currently leads WSU’s soccer program in alltime wins with 47 and over 7,000 minutes played. The Cougars have not beaten the Trojans (11-2-1, 4-2-0) since 2013. The Cougars last played USC in a 3-2 loss in Pullman. The last two matches have only been between one goal. USC’s freshman forward Tara McKeown leads the Trojans with 12 goals and seven assists. Graduate student midfielder Averie Collins and senior forward Morgan Weaver both lead the Cougars with five goals. Weaver leads the Cougars this season with 73 shots. McKeown leads the Trojans with 67 shots. HSING-HAN CHEN | DAILY EVERGREEN FILE In the last three matches, Freshman forward Grayson Lynch attempts to score against the University See Soccer Page 7

Stanford gets 31st consecutive dual meet win Swim falls short on road, heads across the bay to face California By Ryan Root Evergreen reporter
The Cougars were outmatched by the No. 1 Stanford Cardinal 165-86 on Wednesday evening at the Avery Aquatic Center in Stanford, California. WSU (1-2, 0-1) did not man-
age to finish first in any individual or relay race against Stanford (2-0, 1-0). Sophomore Lauren Burckel finished in second place in the 100-yard and 200-yard breaststroke. Burckel’s time in the 200-yard breaststroke was 2:16.91, and Stanford’s first place swimmer junior Grace Zhao’s time was 2:16.07. Junior Mackenzie Duarte finished third in all four of
her races yesterday. Junior Taylor McCoy took secondplace finish in the 200-yard backstroke and the 400-yard individual medley. Senior Ryan Falk also had two second place finishes today: in the 500-yard and 1,000-yard freestyle. Freshman Michee Van Rooyen took third place finishes in these races as well. WSU’s relay team had its best performance in the 200-
yard freestyle. The team of sophomore Keiana Fountaine, sophomore Paige Gardner, junior Chloe Larson, and sophomore Payton Bokowy placed second with a time of 1:37.61. Fountaine took third in the 100yard freestyle. Stanford had its 31st consecutive dual meet win against WSU and its 21st consecutive dual meet victory at the Avery Aquatic Center. Stanford is
the three-time defending national champion. This is the beginning of a long series of road meets for WSU swim as its next home meet isn’t until January 10, 2020. The Cougars will look to bounce back in today’s matchup against the No. 3 University of California Golden Bears at 2 p.m. at the Spieker Aquatics Complex in Berkeley, California.
to be patient,” Shulenberger said. “Winning is hard, keep that in mind, and keep getting opportunities in front of goal and good things are going to happen there.” The fight against the pair of
two Southern California teams will begin at 3 p.m. today at McAlister Field in Los Angeles, California. The Cougars play UCLA at noon Sunday. The games can be viewed on the Pac-12 Networks.
Soccer | Continued from Page 6 the Cougars have outshot their opponents 60-18. After Bennett scored the game winning goal, she said she looks forward to bringing the same team energy this weekend. “I feel like for us to get back
on track and finally get a goal after we have had so many shots, it was a good feeling,” Bennett said. She said she believes now more goals will start happening on the field by her teammates too.

Clery Report | Continued from Page 1 suffered one fire in 2018, but no one was injured, according to the report. Heston said the frequency of the fire alarm going off is related to the activities occurring inside each building. He said common causes for the fire alarm going off in dorms include an abundance of steam from showers and cooking incidents. He said most incidents that occur in on-campus apartments are cooking fires or dryer fires. Burning popcorn in a microwave is a common incident in dorms, he said. “Residence halls and oncampus apartments have these common places that are cooking areas,” he said. “You have people that are cooking, that probably aren’t the best cooks. So that’s another common cause.” He said detectors will be moved if they repeatedly go off for false alarms such as steamy showers. Individuals in dorms who smoke marijuana or cigarettes are likely to set off the fire alarm, he said. Heston said new on-campus residences including some dorms and apartments have a specific type of alarm system set up. If one alarm goes off and resets itself without another alarm going off, the fire department will not respond, he said. “If you live in an area that has a group area and it has a smoke alarm in there that goes off, sometimes it’s only that alarm [that] goes off,” he said. “As soon as the smoke is cleared out of it, then it resets itself. So, we don’t get continually called to these nuisance alarms and people don’t have to evacuate.” He said the second alarm going off would trigger a response alarm in the fire department. The department will also respond in cases when the sprinkler system goes off, he said.

Greek chapter housing is also equipped with alarm and sprinkler systems similar to the ones used in dorms, he said. The fire department inspects the systems frequently, he said. Arrests for alcohol violations and drug violations both decreased between 2017 and 2018, according to the report. There were 75 arrests for alcohol violations in 2017 and 63 in 2018. Thirty-seven people were arrested for drug violations in 2017 compared to 26 people in 2018. Alcohol referrals increased from 234 cases in 2017 to 252 in 2018, according to the report. There were 11 fewer drug viola-
tions in 2018. The number of reported burglaries also decreased from 23 cases in 2017 compared to 10 in 2018, according to the Clery report. One case of burglary was reported in 2018 at the WSU Extension sites, which includes academic centers, agriculture research centers and county learning centers, according to the report. No other crimes were reported at these sites. Larsen said some incidents are counted, but labeled as unfounded crimes. This includes investigated crimes with insufficient evidence. He said in some cases, the incident reported never happened. “Maybe it’s a football game
weekend and sometimes people get intoxicated, and then they can’t remember where their car is parked,” he said. “They come in to record their car stolen and then we look for it, and it was never stolen.” Laura Egan, senior director of programs at the Clery Center, said the act is meant to help students hold universities accountable for campus crime prevention and safety. “We stress the value the Clery Act brings to campuses in providing a more clear picture of what violence looks like at their institution,” she said. “And what they can do to best respond to and prevent that violence, creating safer
campuses for all students and employees.” Egan said if an institution is found not compliant with the Clery Act, it can be charged a fine through a Department of Education program review. The university will also be required to correct whatever it is doing wrong. Fines are about $57, 901 per violation for not complying with Clery, Egan said. Larsen said the Clery Report is used to track broad categories of crimes in the area. “I wish it was a little bit more consistent from place to place,” he said. “But it’s a good thing that keeps law enforcement on their toes.”
strength. She’s very grounded on who she is,” Price said. “I see her as a future tribal leader. I have no doubt that she’s going to go back and do big things for her community with her education.” During the spring 2018 semester, Antone was granted a three-year internship with Voices to Hear, a project that empowers native youths to share their stories through podcasts. Antone said the podcasts focus on environmental issues that affect reservations. She mentored three middle school and high school students in the Coeur d’Alene reservation last summer, she said. Students learned about tribal sovereignty and met tribal leaders. The project also gave them an opportunity to see where the reservation’s resources are coming from. “Any opportunity you get, make sure you take it,” Antone said. “Putting an audio recording on a kid’s hand—that’s a big deal. That’s going to make a big
difference.” Due to her work with Voices to Hear, Antone received the 2019 DTC Leadership and Community Service Award. She presented her project during the 2019 American Indigenous Research Association Conference in Montana. “Just having an internship that is aimed towards uplifting youth on the reservations is important. I’m grateful that it had gotten a lot of acknowledgement and hopefully motivate other people to go out and help their communities,” Antone said. It’s important to empower one another, Antone said. She believes digital mediums are a powerful way for youths to share their stories and use their voice. “We are such a marginalized group,” she said. “Making sure that we’re not afraid to and starting that at a young age is very important because we’ve been silenced for so many generations.”
seeking breast health services. The hospital has been offering this specific promotion since 2010, she said, and the number of people seeking mammograms from WHMC has increased since then. “The response from the community has been fantastic,” Gronning said. There are individuals who
schedule their appointments together and eat their lunch as a group afterwards, like a group of women from Endicott that have been doing so since 2004, she said. WHMC’s offer will continue through the month of October. More information regarding WHMC’s services can be found on its website.

It was common for people on the reservations to help one another, she said, which motivates her to serve her people in any way she can. “I think it’s always been about community,” Antone said. “It’s important for me to go back and create opportunities for the youth.” Moving to WSU was chal-
been involved with many organizations since her freshman year, including the Native American Women’s Association. She served as president for NAWA last year and co-organized an event to bring awareness about missing and murdered indigenous women. “I met a lot of strong, native women. It was very inspiring, and they were like mentors. They created this safe space for
me to come and feel comfortable,” she said. Antone was involved in helping all WSU campuses acknowledge Indigenous Peoples’ Day. She also led NAWA’s collaboration with WSU’s Coalition for Women Students in developing a cultural appropriation workshop, which is now an annual program. “It was important because Halloween was coming up,” Antone said. “Often, communities that are marginalized have to face going and seeing other communities kind of mock their culture and not fully understand what they’re wearing, or the effect it has.” Antone is also a member of Ku-Ah-Mah. She served as its powwow committee chair last year. Native American Student Services Director Faith Price said Antone wrote letters to different tribes in the state to raise funds for last year’s powwow, which cost about $30,000. “[Antone’s] got a lot of

cancer awareness shirt for those getting a mammogram at the hospital, said Laurie Gronning, WHMC public relations officer. A mammogram is an X-ray picture of a person’s breasts and is used to look for early signs of breast cancer and other breast diseases, according to the WHMC website. All
women between 35 and 40 years old should have a baseline screening mammogram and should have an annual screening afterwards, according to the site. Screenings are typically completely covered by most insurances, Gronning said, but there are some programs that can financially assist those
