Reflections from the editors...

Kaitlyn Jakola

Editor in Chief Fall 2012–Winter 2013 To say that my time at Northwestern was perfect would be a lie. To even say that it was 90 percent positive would be a lie. But I think we learn more from the truth, which is that the reason I am here today, an adult with a job and a plan and a future I’m excited about, is because I had bad times in college — and that, because of what I learned at NU, I found a way to survive them. We cannot say this for all of our classmates, unfortunately. There are those who walked through the Arch as nervous, excited freshmen who will never walk back out as nervous, excited seniors. I see their faces, even those I never knew, when I think about how lucky I am to have made it through. But I did make it, along with about 2,000 other students, and I am so proud of us. We withstood physical and mental illness, natural disaster, incidents of racial injustice, the loss of beloved friends and professors, and national

tragedies like the Boston Marathon bombing and the Newtown school shooting. What’s even more impressive is the list of things we accomplished despite those challenges: In just four years, various NU students have done everything from starting their own businesses to winning prestigious fellowships to inventing products to (cough, cough) running publications. So would I be a Wildcat again, given the chance to start over? Absolutely. This campus was the first place I ever really felt wanted. When I was accepted, I began to see for the first time my future, my eventual adulthood. I started to believe the various good things I’d heard said about me but never quite taken at face value. The effect grew when I got to campus and moved into the Communications Residential College, where I found a community that shared and celebrated even my nerdiest interests. It was in CRC that I met the three girls who would keep me sane through the next four years. And it was in CRC that I first cried about leaving NU, at the end of freshman year when I realized just how fast four years would go. What I would change, if I could do it again, is how much thought I gave to the shape of this school beyond my graduation date. The 17-year-old who arrived in Evanston on Sept. 13, 2009, could only think about how long four years seemed — longer than she’d ever lived in one place before. She was too overwhelmed by making the most of her own time at NU to even begin to consider what she and her classmates might leave behind. Since that time, it’s become clear where NU has room for improvement. Racial issues, sexual assault, mental health and overall diversity have all become frequent discussion topics on campus, and it’s been heartening to see my classmates take up these important causes. But as we prepare to leave, we must transfer that passion to those who will finish what we started. Because NU wasn’t perfect during our time here, but for those who follow us, it could come pretty damn close.

Maria LaMagna

Editor in Chief Winter 2012–Spring 2012 This is by far the hardest issue of The Daily Northwestern I’ve ever had to put together. Other nights have been longer, more stressful and involved more yelling (Sorry, guys). But at least when I put together past issues, I had more days left at Northwestern than I could count. The fact that my time here is over has been a tough realization. This campus has felt more like home than anywhere else I’ve lived. I don’t feel ready to reflect fully on what these happy years have meant yet. I think effects of formative life experiences become apparent slowly. When I arrived four years ago, I had never traveled outside the United States or lived alone. My high school years had been positive, but not stellar. I was still searching for friends who truly understood me. And when I got to campus, I was swept into its culture immediately. It became clear

right away that to succeed here, I would have to become better. From classes to extracurricular activities, NU itself seemed to tell me, “It’s time to change.” I’m so happy I listened. If I’m proud of one thing, it’s that I took risks — living in Buenos Aires, Atlanta and Miami, joining a sorority, working at The Daily, losing lots of sleep and allowing myself to become close to friends who soon would live far away once again. I’m not the same woman who visited The Daily Northwestern office during a campus visit in 2009. It’s impossible to travel, take risks, work hard, be happy, be angry, fall in love and not change. I look different. I feel different. It’s empowering to know who I was doesn’t have to be who I am forever. I���ve truly come to believe that with perseverance and ambition we can make our options limitless. Just as NU, its students and faculty have challenged and changed me, I hope this school continues to evolve. The editor-inchief of The Daily gets to write about and see everything that is wonderful about this university. But unfortunately, they see its ugliest side as well. There is work to be done at NU, and I’m confident leaving it to the dedicated, passionate students who will be on campus going forward. Just as this school changes us, we are responsible for changing it. Please do that; the options are limitless. Just because something is traditional does not make it right. Real change requires thought, hard work and the courage to offer and implement solutions. But the result might be something more positive than you could have ever imagined. None of our individual accomplishments are as important as treating other people with respect. Thank you, NU, for inspiring me to change. It hurts my heart to leave the place that makes me happiest. Best of luck and happy graduation to all of my fellow seniors. Thank you for reading The Daily Northwestern while I was the editor. Let’s keep the conversation going.

By Maria LaMagna I’ll admit it. When I heard Mikhail Baryshnikov would be Northwestern’s 2013 commencement speaker, my mind immediately went to “Sex and the City.” But years before he broke Carrie Bradshaw’s heart in Paris as the mysterious Russian artist Aleksandr Petrovsky, Mikhail Baryshnikov was one of the most celebrated ballet dancers of all time. He’ll impart his wisdom on the Class of 2013 on Friday. I know it’s tempting to just line up and prepare to compare his address to Stephen Colbert’s. But first, let’s learn about what makes this NU dad important on an international scale, and not just on E! reruns: 1. Baryshnikov was born in Riga, Latvia, on January 27, 1948.

4. Baryshnikov won major ballet awards in his youth, including a gold medal at a Varna, Bulgaria, dance competition in 1966 and another gold medal at the First International Ballet Competition in Moscow in 1969. 5. By the late 1960’s, Baryshnikov was one of the Soviet Union’s leading ballet dancers. He was known for both technical skill and ability to express his emotions through his performances. 6. During his successful career, Baryshnikov began to resent the atmosphere of communist Russia. In 1974, he defected from the Soviet Union and went West in pursuit of greater creative freedom. He was once quoted as saying, “I am individualist and there it is a crime,” of his move. 7. Baryshnikov went to the United States, where he joined the American Ballet theatre. His performances

Senior Columns | Daily staffersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reflections on the past four years

Why seeing NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silver linings is a choice By Sarah Freishtat My roommate and I sat trapped in our apartment during a thunderstorm, debating what I could possibly write for this column. As I distracted her from studying for her last exam â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as I have done every finals week since freshman year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I worried about sounding cheesy, or like I had no idea what I was talking about. After all, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even graduated college yet. But then I realized that was something I would have worried about freshman year. And if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing four years here have taught me, it is to stop caring what faceless readers might think. My college experience has been about what I choose to make of Northwestern, not what everyone else makes of it for me. This may seem fairly obvious, but it gives perspective to of some of the big, campuswide discussions that have happened during the time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here. When national media picked up on a rather explicit demonstration of a sex toy in Prof. John Michael Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class, I could have been scandalized by the portrayal of my prestigious institution of higher education, or, I could have thought it was cool to study with professors who push boundaries and take risks. When students wore blackface to a Halloween party, and then again when minority students were harassed on a shuttle bus, and then again when a student group hosted a party involving racial costumes, I could have lamented the state of diversity at the school. Or, like so many students did, I could have taken the opportunity to discuss a difficult issue with friends and colleagues from a variety of backgrounds.

MARKET FRESH

When the religious student group Campus Crusaders for Christ began its very vocal and effective â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree with Markwellâ&#x20AC;? campaign, in which students signed on to and publicized the beliefs of alumnus Matthew Markwell (McCormick â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;12), I could have taken offense at the apparent rejection of students of different beliefs. Or, I could have been inspired by one groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to express its beliefs freely, in its own way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying I always had the reaction I should have had to these events, or that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to take something constructive from them. But, I could choose what to take away from them, whether I actually did so or not. I could have chosen to seize an opportunity, or to accept my schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flaws for what they were. NU is far from perfect, and can be unforgiving at times. But every fault of the school has a silver lining, if only that you can work to fix that fault. This, I would imagine, will be what the real world is like. I can be worried about not having a job, or I can take advantage of having one last summer. I can stress about having to moving away from my friends and family, or I can be excited to explore a new place. It will be easy to look back at NU and coat it with a rosy glow, or a shadow of thank-god-Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m-out-of-there-negativity. But neither of those reflects what we have gotten out of this place, good or bad. It is those moments when we choose to see an event in a certain light, or take advantage of a certain situation, that we should remember. The moments that teach us the most are the ones when we choose what we want to make of our experiences.

By David Uberti I had never been beaten up until I was 21 years old and in the best shape of my life. A Fourth of July boating accident killed three children outside New York. As an intern for Newsday, I was sent to do journalismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dirty work: knocking on survivorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; doors. A pair of angry neighbors threatened me as I approached one of the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes. Only a second after I rapped my knuckles against its front door, the two bounded up the stairs, grabbed me by the neck and threw me against a wall. They tossed me off the porch as if I were a rag doll. After I landed in crumpled heap on the grass below, they shoved me across the front yard for good measure. I politely suggested they screw themselves as I dialed 911. The best part? No one was even home. I never opened that door, let alone walk through it. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life. Sometimes you get beaten up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a lesson college, land of risk-free opportunity, often fails to teach. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say it was worthless. Far from it. Northwestern instilled in me an unquenchable thirst to become smarter, better, faster and stronger in every sense of the words â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to get good grades, but rather to grow as a human being. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the foundation higher education is supposed to build. Multiple stints in Washington made my last two years of college a blur. But they cemented a lesson commonly repeated by my Medill professors: Real education and self-improvement occur outside the classroom. The Ivory Petri dish can only culture students so much, for a big part of a fulfilling life is finding your own doors to open. College sets the table for that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as much about learning what you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do as it is about understanding what you do. NU is among the best in that respect. And the quarter-million-dollar piece of paper Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pick up on graduation day boasts as

much. You can learn to speak Arabic, how to put together a college newspaper and which drugs not to do. You can take dance classes, even if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dance. You can study how to build jet engines or master the intricacies of fashion design. And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll definitely find out how to win an argument. I felt like I needed to do it all when I was a freshman, from making friends to acing classes and everything in between. It was overwhelming at first, but I realize now that the pressure was a good thing. It forced me to test my limits, expanding them in the process. College â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as advertised â&#x20AC;&#x201D; makes you better at learning, organizing and analyzing information. The 10-page paper I wrote last week while watching playoff hockey took me as much focus as a five-pager once did in the library. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaving college in the best intellectual shape of my life, a feeling sure to be shared by many. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for me to disentangle myself from Northwesternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety net. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take risks and flirt with failure. But most of all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge. Silver-platter opportunities are few and far between outside of college. Besides that, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re boring. Northwestern provided the skills, knowledge and practice I need to create my own opportunities. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more is that it taught me to venture outside my comfort zone. That slice of mental territory is a living laboratory by itself, where you really gain self awareness. To be sure, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of college I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave behind. Shotgunning Busch Light will no longer be socially acceptable. I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to wear jeans and a T-shirt wherever I go. Friends will fan out across the world. But I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look forward and continue growing if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m constantly looking over my shoulder, waiting for the gift-wrapped opportunities handed out at Northwestern. Life is about opening doors, sure. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about closing them, too.

Senior Columns | A graduate’s reflection on the past four years

What I learned in college: at NU, passion is celebrated By Cally Trautwein Full disclosure: I’m currently in a very particular and precarious emotional state. I watched two movies today: First Daughter and Shakespeare in Love. I have a final tomorrow, and a cold, and I just ate three cookies. We march through the Arch on Friday, back where it all began. I’d say I’ve come full circle, but thank God I’m a completely different person now than I was in 2009. Four years ago, an annoying 18-year-old New Jersey native moved into the smelliest dorm on campus and thought abbreviating words was an okay thing to do. Today, I only abbreviate words in an ironic way. (LOL!!!!111!) The truth is, I’ve grown up a lot at this school. I’ve learned to forgive myself for losing three pairs of keys my freshman year and for eating six grilled cheeses at a fundraiser. I’ve learned it’s okay to go out and it’s okay to stay in. And that life’s really fun when you stop caring if other people are watching. (Particularly when you’re dancing). On the first day here, they told us we were One Northwestern. And if you pay close attention, you can see it: the duct tape that binds us together. At this school, friends come out in droves for each other’s a capella shows and exchange

sympathetic nods at Deering on Fridays. At this school, turnout for DM’s Harry Potter trivia night is excessive, and people spend freezing cold Saturdays in the fan section of Ryan Field, screaming their heads off. Basically, at this school, we care. We care a lot. In this community, it’s cool to care about

people, places and things. You’ll find big fans of old ‘90s pop here, and literary aficionados who openly hate Anna from Anna Karenina and won’t stop talking until you hate her, too. Yes, milestones are celebrated at Northwestern, but matter less than the nights spent dancing like loons anywhere there’s an opportunity to do so, or sitting on the

couch talking about how underrated “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” is. What I’m trying to say is that passion is celebrated here, and people notice when you do something great. Among friends at this school, your feelings, even those crazy ones you express during finals week after two Red Bulls, are valid and validated. To me, that’s important. Next year when I’m lonely, I’ll think of the time “Sandstorm” played at Dance Marathon and the tent exploded into a rave. I’ll remember wiping out throwing snowballs at strangers during Snowpocalypse, and post-gaming football with Papa John’s buffalo chicken pizza. These are the moments I’ll keep close to the chest: the reminders of times we all reached out to each other, grabbed hands and held on tight. The times we rejoiced and laughed and cried as a moving, sweating, vital mass. I’ll carry them with me as I move through the world, comfortable in the knowledge that they’re part of you, too. I wish us all luck — in finding jobs, and love and other weirdos and goofballs to be our friends in the next chapters of our lives. Just remember these four years for what they were: a beautifully circuitous and wild ride into and out of the unknown. Next up: something new.

Senior Columns | Daily staffersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reflections on the past four years

Living on NU time means enjoying unique moments By Allison Lasher The first and only entry that appears in the diary I brought with me to college is dated â&#x20AC;&#x153;September 11, 2009 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; somewhere between New Jersey and Chicago.â&#x20AC;? Yup, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. The only time I journaled at college was on my flight to Northwestern to begin the journey of amazingness more formally referred to as college. When I think about writing this reflection, it feels like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to do the impossible task of writing the last entry in my diary of the life I created here at NU. With only the beginning and the end actually written on paper, the rest is left documented by mental pictures, Facebook posts

and the effects of stress eating. I guess I never felt the need to furiously scribble down every last detail because I never viewed NU as only a four-year deal. Deep in the bottomless pit that is Campus Gear, my friend found the perfect T-shirt that fully captures how I now view the NU experience. The back of the shirt depicts a tropical island scene and the front of the shirt reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Northwestern Time.â&#x20AC;? Truth be told, I have never been able to make sense of the shirt. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give it my best shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Northwestern timeâ&#x20AC;? is not similar to island time, like the shirt would have you believe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Northwestern timeâ&#x20AC;? for me has

meant squeezing out every bit of goodness this place has to offer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dancing in Dance Marathon when you have finals the next week because there will always be exams, but each DM is once in a lifetime. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waking up at 9 AM to buy tickets to see Tracy Morgan when they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go on sale until 10. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being woken up by a friend with a bagel in one hand and a beer in the other on game day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staying up until 3AM to talk about nothing, because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing better than talking about nothing at 3AM. I am lucky to have lived at NU for four years, but the clock hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run out yet. Knowing how to live on NU time wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t magically disappear during my flight home,

somewhere between Chicago and New Jersey. I am leaving NU with more than just a diploma. The opportunities will be different, the place will be different, even the people may be different. But the NU lifestyle doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to end just yet.

Letting go of control can make changes liberating By Rebecca Cohen

a coin. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking about Frostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poem this week, as I approach the moment when my path will diverge from my college friends. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to pick the places where we become ourselves. I mean this not just in the sense that we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t choose where we come from or how that place rubs off on us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; though as a native of Seattle, where â&#x20AC;&#x153;formalwearâ&#x20AC;? means polarfleece and your one flannel shirt without holes, I remember that truth every time I show up wildly underdressed for a fancy event â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but also in the sense that even when we are old enough to choose where we live, we have little to no say in what becomes important to us while weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there. I applied to Northwestern with a vision of afternoons spent sprawling on Deering Meadow, discussing philosophy and art with a small circle of friends. At least one of us would probably be wearing tweed elbow patches. Or maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take a class in evolutionary biology or join the ultimate Frisbee team, I

thought. None of those things happened. Instead, a friend pressured me into accompanying her to an info session about writing for The Daily. Four years, hundreds of issues, and a few too many sunrises in the newsroom When we are later, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine a old enough to version of college in choose where which I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend most of my waking we live, we have hours at this paper. little to no say in I learned skills at Daily that, until I what becomes The got there, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realimportant to ize I was missing: how us while weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re to deal with criticism, how to talk to strangthere. ers, how to get Norbucks baristas to give me coffee for free. And compared to the people I know, I think my vision for my NU experience has shifted

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

relatively little. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t switch my major or find my soulmate or get diagnosed with a mental illness. Nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life went according to plan. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the choices we make matter. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure at another university, I might have become a very different person. But the thing about taking the road that makes â&#x20AC;&#x153;all the differenceâ&#x20AC;? is that there is really only one option in this scenario, and it is change. And looking at the wear on the path or how many leaves have covered it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help you determine who youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be when you get to the end of it. This is scary for me, and maybe for you too. Most of us got into NU because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the kind of people who plan ahead, color-code our Google Calendars and make it to both the study session and the pregame scheduled for the same night. We like to be in control. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also kind of liberating not to be. Whatever choice we make, after all, the road will go on.

At pretty much every graduation Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to, someone at some point has whipped out Robert Frostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Road Not Taken.â&#x20AC;? You know the poem: Two paths, woodland imagery, the speaker picks the one less traveled and it makes â&#x20AC;&#x153;all the difference.â&#x20AC;? As platitudes aimed at people wearing mortarboards go, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right up there with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do what you loveâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the journey, not the destination.â&#x20AC;? But according to the poet himself, Frost didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t write â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Road Not Takenâ&#x20AC;? to celebrate the power of personal choice. He wrote it to poke fun at a friend who had trouble making decisions. The middle lines of the poem, which donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually make it into commencement addresses, give this away: Though Frostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speaker claims to have chosen the less popular road, he also notes that both are worn â&#x20AC;&#x153;really about the same.â&#x20AC;? His â&#x20AC;&#x153;choiceâ&#x20AC;? is the equivalent of flipping

GRADUATION ISSUE

4 YEARS. HUNDREDS OF STORIES. HERE’S THE BEST OF THE BEST. CITY 1. Schapiro becomes president

Along with the current class of graduating seniors, Northwestern President Morton Schapiro entered campus in fall 2009. Schapiro brought a background in economics of higher education, and experience as president of Williams College. He implemented a focus on adding “third spaces” for NU students to socialize and study, and has spearheaded major fundraising and construction projects.

2. Diversity issues take center stage on campus

Incidents of racial and cultural insensitivity seemed to dominate campus conversation during the last four years, coming to a head in spring 2012 with a “Beer Olympics” party that, featuring racially insensitive costumes, became dubbed the “Racist Olympics.” Other issues have included a Latina student being mocked on her way home, and NU maintenance worker Michael Collins finding a teddy bear hanging in his office as if it had been lynched in December 2012.

3. Loss of three NU students in one year

The Northwestern community was stunned in late September when incoming McCormick sophomore Harsha Maddula went missing after a night of socializing. His body was found five days after his disappearance in Wilmette Harbor. Alyssa Weaver, a Weinberg junior, was studying abroad in London when she committed suicide in November. Dmitri Teplov, a McCormick sophomore, was found dead in Pancoe Hall on the morning of May 5 with a suicide note in his pocket.

4. CAPS review

The three student deaths raised new concerns about whether mental health services on campus were sufficient. NU Student Affairs approved three new Counseling and Psychological Services positions in May.

5. Human sexuality class canceled in wake of sex-toy demo

In February 2011, Prof. John Michael Bailey’s 600-person human sexuality class, one of the most popular at NU, held an optional after-class lecture on sexual diversity, in which a couple discussed and then demonstrated exhibitionism and the female orgasm using a motorized sex toy. News of the demonstration spread around campus and then to national media. The University canceled the class for the 20112012 school year.

6. Protess resigns from NU amid Innocence Project controversy

Former head of the Medill Innocence Project David Protess retired from NU in spring 2011 in the wake of University accusations that he had doctored emails and withheld documents from prosecutors who accused the 29-year professor and his students of ethical misconduct in investigating a murder conviction. The Medill Innocence Project continues under new direction and with different rules, but the controversy cast a wide shadow.

7. Chabad house disaffiliation

Northwestern disaffiliated with the Tannenbaum Chabad House and Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein on Sept. 11, 2012. An investigation found the rabbi guilty of violating NU alcohol policy. After the decision, students and alumni rallied around Klein, signing a petition voicing their dissatisfaction.

8. Dance Marathon 2013 record

Northwestern University Dance Marathon 2013 raised $1,214,632, topping 2012’s total by more than $100,000. $741,394.10 was allotted for the Danny Did Foundation, NUDM’s primary beneficiary.

CAMPUS 9. ‘Brothel law’ strains town-gown trust

No one has ever been evicted for violating the city’s so-called ‘brothel law,’ a rule barring more than three unrelated individuals for living together, but ongoing threats that officials would begin enforcing the law has remained a point of contention between Northwestern students and city government. While aldermen have stated their concerns are for the safety of those living in cramped conditions, students voiced concerns they were being unfairly targeted in a housing market that made living with no more than two other people impractical and expensive. In May 2013, aldermen discussed a plan to change the rules to allow up to six unrelated people as long as there are an equal number of bedrooms as tenants and the landlord applies for a safety permit.

10. Listserv message about rowdy students goes viral

Northwestern and Evanston hit the national spotlight in fall 2010 after an email to off-campus students listed numerous complaints from city residents following an evening of intense partying by NU students. Dean of Students Burgwell Howard shared photos and chastised students for “being rude, urinating and vomiting on people’s property.” The email was picked up by various media outlets, including Gawker, garnering attention from far beyond the NU community.

11. Evanston teen shot and killed near ETHS

14-year-old Dajae Coleman was killed during fall 2012 in a shooting while walking home with his friends, spawning a city-wide discussion of violence in Evanston. The Evanston Township High School freshman was remembered for his leadership at school and in his community. Coleman’s mother was later invited to the President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address along with other individuals whose lives had been affected by gun violence.

Oct. 27, 2009: Six painted men streak past Tech, one vomits

12. After 36 years, The Keg tapped for good

A year after Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl pulled its liquor license, downtown bar The Keg of Evanston dropped its final appeals and closed its doors permanently in spring 2013. The embattled Evanston watering hole, notorious for allowing underage college and high school students enter, and city officials cited safety concerns in their decision to shut the business down. Still, Northwestern students and alumni who remembered The Keg’s brighter days mourned the loss of what was once named among the best American college bars.

BLOTTER Six men ran without any clothes past the Technological Institute on Friday afternoon, police said.

Officers on patrol saw the six men, five of whom were Northwestern students, run onto Tech Drive around 4:40 p.m. Friday, said University Police Deputy Chief Dan McAleer. None of them was wearing any clothes. McAleer said he heard the men were painted head to toe in purple. Police stopped the men, who told police a lost bet led to their streaking. While police stopped the men, one student began to vomit, McAleer said. The student told police he may have contracted the H1N1 virus from a family member. Student Affairs and Student Health Service were notified. All six men were issued Evanston municipal code violations for indecent exposure.

13. NU demolishes Prentice hospital

After two years of debate over whether the Prentice Women’s Hospital in downtown Chicago was eligible for landmark status, Northwestern received a permit and began demolition on the abandoned building in spring 2013. Preservationists hoped to preserve the building, designed by famous Chicago architect Bertrand Goldberg, but the Commission on Chicago Landmarks twice rejected landmark protection for the hospital. The University plans to build a biomedical research facility in its place.

April 8, 2010: Trespasser takes computer, leaves ham and crackers

University Police believe a suspicious person reported at the Music Administration Building on Tuesday may also have been involved in a burglary at a sorority house the same day, authorities said. UP responded to a suspicious person complaint at 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday from someone in an office on the first floor the Music Administration Building, 711 Elgin Road, UP Deputy Chief Dan McAleer said. According to the complaint, a male subject opened the door, saw people inside the

room and quickly walked away. The complainant repeatedly asked the individual if he needed help, but the man didn’t answer and continued walking downstairs to the ground level. Earlier in the day, UP responded to another suspicious person complaint at Delta Zeta, 717 University Place, McAleer said. After the sorority house cook heard someone ring the doorbell around 10:30 a.m., he used a remote control to open a side door, at which point an unknown male subject entered the house. “The cook said he’s been working in the house for 10 years and did not recognize the subject,” McAleer said. The cook tried to identify the subject, who ran upstairs, but he could not locate him, McAleer said. The cook then contacted UP, who conducted an unsuccessful search of the house and surrounding area. A resident of the sorority house reported at 12:30 p.m. that between 9:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m., someone entered her unlocked room on the second floor without her consent when she was out of the room and removed her Sony VAIO computer and power cord from her desk. In their place, the student found a package of ham and crackers she said does not belong to her. McAleer said UP are investigating and believe they have video footage showing the subject walking south through the sorority quad around 10 a.m.

April 11, 2010: Firefighters respond to burning couch in Ashbury Avenue alleyway

The Evanston fire department extinguished flames from a burning couch in the rear alley on the 1300 block of Asbury Avenue on Sunday morning, authorities said. Fire officials also found two other locations on the block with burning debris,

which they also extinguished, Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Tom Guenther said. “The fires were easily extinguished with no additional loss to property,” Guenther said.Evanston police officers joined fire officials at the scene at 2 a.m., but they still do not know who is responsible, Guenther said. An investigation is pending.

May 27, 2010: Woman’s wallet stolen by couple after helping rescue their turtle from street

An Evanston woman believes a couple stole her wallet after she helped them rescue a turtle from a roadway, police said. The woman told police she was walking east on the 400 block of Greenleaf Street when she came across a man and woman, both in their mid-30s, “acting frantically over an abandoned turtle,” Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Tom Guenther said. The woman said she placed her backpack on the ground and picked up the turtle to move it out of the street. The woman said she believes one of the two people stole her wallet while her backpack was on the ground, Guenther said. The wallet contained a driver’s license, IDs and a gift car, Guenther said.

May 3, 2011: Jellybeans stolen from Relay for Life sidewalk fundraiser

Police received a walk-in report Sunday regarding a stolen jar of jellybeans, Evanston Cmdr. Tom Guenther said. The person reported that she was fundraising for Relay for Life on the 1700 block of Sherman Avenue by having people guess how many jellybeans were in a jar. While she was working, five or six boys filled out cards with names and email addresses. Afterward, one grabbed the jar of jellybeans off the table and ran away with it, Guenther said.

The police have yet to determine if the information provided on the cards is factual.

Jan. 12, 2012: Thief steals Louis Vuitton purse, cookies

A package delivered to a building in the 1900 block of Sherman Avenue containing an $820 brown Louis Vuitton purse and $23 worth of cookies of unspecified flavor was reported stolen Tuesday. Evanston Police Department spokesman Cmdr. Jay Parrott said the package went missing Dec. 7 but was not reported until Tuesday. Parrott said the package was taken “soon after it was dropped off.” That time was somewhere between 4:30 and 7 p.m. There was no description available for the suspect.

March 2, 2012: Flower pot set ablaze on Evanston woman’s porch

A flower pot on the porch of an Evanston woman’s porch in the 1900 block of Emerson Street was set on fire Wednesday afternoon, Evanston Police Department spokesman Jay Parrott said. The 71-year-old homeowner noticed the pot on fire and extinguished it. Parrott said that fire department came to make sure the fire was properly extinguished, and Evanston police filed a report. It is believed someone set fire to the pot, Parrott said. However, he also said at this time there are no suspects. In addition, Parrott said how the fire started remains unknown. Although police think someone set fire to the pot, the fire may not have been started by anyone at all, he said.

April 20, 2012: Senior citizen loses pricey wallpaper

An Evanston senior citizen reported losing $10,000 worth of wallpaper Wednesday.

A thief allegedly took four boxes of handmade wallpaper from the first-floor meeting room of The Mather retirement home, 425 Davis St., between December and February, said Evanston Police Department spokesman Cmdr. Jay Parrott.

October 15, 2012: Mountain bike valued at $5,000 stolen

A black, 21-inch Schwinn mountain bike with stripes was stolen from a 31-year-old Evanston resident. The bike, valued at an estimated $5,000, was locked to a bike storage rack on the 600 block of Main Street when it was stolen sometime Thursday. The police have no suspects, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

October 23, 2012: Rash of flattened tires across Evanston

Since Friday, more than 20 incidences of flattened car tires have been reported to the Evanston Police Department, said Cmdr. Jay Parrott. Between 8 p.m. Friday and 11:30 a.m. Saturday, 11 people reported flattened tires on their cars. The affected vehicles were parked on the street or in residential driveways. Three cars were damaged in the 2200 block of Sherman Avenue, four in the 2300 block of Sherman Avenue, one in the 700 block of Colfax Street, one in the 2200 block of Orrington Avenue and one in the 2300 block of Orrington Avenue. Four tires were punctured, one had a screw in it, and the others were flattened through unknown means. Parrott added that 11 more reports of flattened tires came in Monday morning. EPD is investigating the situation and looking at video surveillance from the affected areas.

April 21, 2013: Everything but dog food allegedly stolen from Evanston woman’s packages

An Evanston woman’s packages were discovered at a wrong address Thursday with

most of their contents stolen, Parrott said. A resident in the 800 block of Elmwood Avenue told police two opened Amazon boxes were mistakenly outside his or her home, Parrott said. Police contacted the intended recipient of the boxes, a woman who lives in the 1100 block of Ashland Avenue, Parrott said. The stolen items included coffee, lotion, hair conditioner and hair gel, totaling about $60, Parrott said. Whoever took the items, however, did not take the packages of dog food the woman ordered. Police returned the dog food to the woman, Parrott said.

May 19, 2013: Youngsters jump on cars on Asbury Avenue

A group of young people Wednesday damaged five cars parked on Asbury Avenue, Evanston police said. Witnesses reported a group of people who appeared to be in their late teens, possibly college-aged, jumped from car to car between 11 p.m. and midnight in the 2500 block of Asbury Avenue, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. The group dented five car roofs, damaging a 2000 Buick, a 2004 Saab, a 2005 Toyota, a 2009 Honda and a 2010 Chrysler, Parrott said.

June 10, 2013: 100 pounds of pot found in recycling receptacle

An Evanston resident found about 100 pounds of marijuana in their recycling container Saturday, according to police. After the resident tipped them off, police said they pulled nine packages of pot worth more than $100,000 in total out of the receptacle in the 1000 block of Brown Avenue. The resident stumbled upon the stash after noticing their container was not where they usually put it, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. Police are investigating the possible origin and destination of the marijuana.

Senior Columns | Daily staffers’ reflections on the past four years

The value of an NU education By JuJu Kim I remember an incident about four years ago, several days after I decided to enroll at Northwestern, when a family friend declared my choice foolish. “My friend who went to Medill has to work multiple freelance jobs to make ends meet,” she said. “It’s not worth it.” Overwhelmed with excitement about my impending high school graduation and with anticipation of the future, I dismissed the cynical warning that would later come back to haunt me. College graduation seemed eons away. What was the point of worrying now? Fast forward to Winter Quarter of freshman year, the night of my first man-on-the-street deadline assignment and the first time I questioned my enrollment decision. My fingers froze around my pen, icicles formed in my nose and barely legible scribbles covered my notebook. I needed two more sources, but no one wanted to talk to me. Making deadline seemed impossible. “This better be worth it,” I muttered to myself outside of Panera. I found myself repeating some form of that line during trying times throughout my four years at NU. I said it when I found myself spending more than $100 on a taxi ride from Evanston to another suburb to interview a source for my Multimedia Storytelling final project instead of attending Dillo Day freshman year, and I uttered it during the numerous all-nighters I pulled. When my journalism residency enlightened me to the harsh realities of finding a magazine job in New York City and the sacrifices that would entail, the question, “Is this truly worth it?” resonated in my brain daily. Earlier this quarter, I met my boyfriend and his friends, who attend University of Chicago, in Chicago for a meal. One of them asked, “If you had to do it again, would you still go to Northwestern?” I hesitated before answering, pondering how I could respond to his question when I had no idea when I would find a job. I look back now at that moment and wonder how I could base my response solely on my employment status. Despite the countless instances over the past four years when the phrase “It’s not worth it” echoed through my mind, I recently realized my college experience adds up to much more than a salary and a job title. I may not depart Northwestern with a job, but I’m leaving with so many intangibles — assets and experiences to which you can affix no monetary value. A group project for the journalism class I feared most introduced me to some of my closest friends. The high school students I mentored on Saturday mornings at Medill’s Chicago newsroom taught me to approach life with a more relaxed perspective and motivated me with their passion for journalism. After a myriad of depressing fourth-quarter losses, I shared in Wildcat fandom’s elation when the football team won the Gator Bowl. My heart sank when I found out Drew Crawford needed surgery on his shoulder. I ruined my favorite pair of shoes splashing in the mud at Chiddy Bang and B.o.B. I separated the people who cared from the people who didn’t, and I trimmed the latter from my life. I’m proud to call a number of inspiring professors my mentors. I expanded my knowledge in academic disciplines from which I never imagined myself taking classes. I learned how to navigate Chicago. I discovered a group of five NU girls can live in a cramped two-bedroom apartment with one bathroom in New York City for a quarter and emerge from it as friends. I don’t know where life will take me in the next year or even in the next few months. Perhaps I will need to work multiple freelance gigs to pay the bills, and maybe our family friend will approach my mother to say, “I told you so.” But thanks to these intangibles, I’m parting NU a completely changed individual. And I’d say that is worth quite a lot.

College brought both tears and highs By Colleen Park I’ve never had a good memory. A part of the appeal of journalism has been recording as many moments as your notepad, tape and hard drive can hold. It’s also the appeal of hoarding, which I’ll admit to my fair share of doing. I’m never going to re-watch or re-read any of my interviews from journalism assignments past, but when I see the files sitting on my (very messy) desktop, I’ll indulge myself in sentimentality. For most of my classmates, Medill’s former dean John Lavine might be noted for the controversies of his term. But I’ll look at the 12-gigabyte raw video file and remember that he let a nervous freshman question him for an

hour about the e-reading devices for a 201-1 final story. I don’t have a good memory, but looking back at four years, it’s hard to forget the emotional peaks. I’ve shed tears of joy and frustration, had mind-numbing all-nighters and the more frequent vein-popping annoyance at the Evanston weather gods. It’s nice to boast to friends back home in California that

I lived through a blizzard, the not-quite- lifethreatening but class-canceling experience of Snowpocalypse. Of course, if I could I would want to change some experiences, mostly academic. To pick and choose more classes where I could be chiseling stone rather than filling out scantrons. But there are none that I would want to miss, like friends — brilliant people all so drastically unlike each other but happy to be silly in the same company. Or four years of triumph seeing hundreds of my fellow students at Relay For Life or late Wednesday nights at the newsroom editing stories or writing a rant about Glee. I’ve never had a good memory, but looking back at these four years, I’ve had a lot of great ones. Thanks Northwestern, 2009-2013.

Everything is changing, but that’s okay By Sarah Daoud The other day someone called me an alum. It was nothing short of horrifying. The truth is, I don’t know how to exist outside of Northwestern. My four years here have been more formative than I ever could have imagined, in all the necessary and strangest ways. I became a feminist, vegetarian, sex-educating, free-pizza-hoarding flip-cup champion at NU. I became a painter, a longboarder, a playwright, a skinny dipper, a neurotic library troll, a sorority sister. I’ve gotten drunk at a professor’s house, accidentally quoted Mean Girls in class, non-ironically suggested someone “stick it to the man” at dinner in Sargent and then gone on to do the Cupid’s Shuffle at a frat party later that evening. I’ve woken up at the ass-crack of dawn to start drinking. I fell in love. I danced for120 hours. I snuck into Lollapallooza. I’ve fallen asleep on the rocks, hung out on campus building rooftops (my personal favorite is the Block Museum, but everybody’s different), got piercings that devastated my

parents, and gone with friends to get their tattoos after a boozy brunch in New York City, one inspired by Harry Potter and the other a prayer. A cement truck driver helped me parallel park my car once after he watched Will it ever be me try and fail for nearly the same? I hear 20 minutes. I’ve had a professor it won’t be. I hear email me back to redo it’s better, that my “joke of a paper” turn it again by it’s worse, that and morning, or drop her it’s lonely. I hear class. Granted, I wrote that you have to it in 30 minutes, and it was truly garbage, but stop drinking so if that doesn’t toughen you up, nothing will. much. Then, somehow, I got an A in her class. I don’t know what happens when I leave, or who I become when I’m not running around like a deranged person, making it from Bobb to

Parkes Hall in three minutes flat. Will it ever be the same? I hear it won’t be. I hear it’s better, that it’s worse, that it’s lonely. I hear that you have to stop drinking so much, that it’s weird to make friends, that it’s an adjustment. What I’m trying to come to terms with is that maybe it doesn’t have to be the same. Sure, college is a special experience, and nothing can replace it — but is that so tragic? Is it okay to live a new kind of life, or am I going to miss today, right now, forever? And why am I asking so many questions in this column? Am I Carrie Bradshaw or something? I don’t have all the answers (read: I don’t have any answers), but maybe that’s not what life’s all about. Maybe it’s about doing what’s next, because if you don’t, then how will you ever be that wrinkled person who did it all, who lived big and full and true? What I’m really getting at is that yesterday I bought a hoodie that says “Northwestern alum” on it. I’m wearing it now, and I’m starting to feel okay about the whole thing.

Support for NU sports must extend past four years By Colin Becht Four years ago, we came to a school without much of an athletic reputation. Sure, alumni and older students would tell us that Northwestern was actually in its athletic prime, and they were right. But at the time, there was very little to show for it. Compared to the state schools we turned down, a recent bowl loss just didn’t really inspire any great pride. Hell, even the Ivies that rejected us had NCAA Tournament bids. Now, as we prepare to leave NU, the physical proof has come through. The Wildcats finally won a bowl game, ending a 64-year drought, and the men’s basketball team earned its first-ever bid to the … okay, maybe that milestone will have to wait for another graduating class. The larger point is that, among the many things that have changed at NU over the past four years — Harris Hall, the never-ending renovation

of Tech, the loss of our dear Keg — nothing may have changed more than Wildcat athletics. As impending alumni, we have even more to boast about than the women’s lacrosse dynasty and the highest Academic Progress Rate in the Football Bowl Subdivision (both of which remain intact) that greeted us in 2009. Sports fans are often mocked for referring to their favorite teams with “we,” implying that they are somehow a part of the squad. Never is the term “we” more appropriate, however, than as a college student. Although an individual may never throw a pass or knock down a jumper themselves, they are still a member of the institution whose name the players wear across their chests. They will have classes with those players, live in the same dorms, share dining hall meals together. The connection that “we” implies does not have to end with graduation. Your hard-earned

diploma forever links you to the athletes sporting purple and white. You were there for some of the most defining moments in NU’s athletic history, and, incredibly, that is not an exaggeration. The continuous flow of time demands that our relationship with NU athletics must change, but the extent to which it does is up to each of us. If you look at any of the great college fanbases, what most glaringly separates them from NU is not student involvement. Yes, their student sections are larger, but they are also typically drawing from student bodies at least twice the size of NU’s. In terms of percentage of the student who attends games, NU is not incredibly far behind. What really differentiate the crowds that fill the Big House and the Horseshoe and Beaver Stadium from the 30,000 that scatter throughout Ryan Field are two other components: community involvement and alumni connection.

the former belong to the university with campaigns like “Chicago’s Big Ten Team.” Improvements to the latter lie, in part, with us. We face an uphill battle. Compared to most other Big Ten schools, NU’s smaller alumni pool is more likely to be geographically dispersed. The university’s national and international academic reputation draws in students from across the country and the globe, and alumni often head far outside Chicago after graduation. Yet progress can be made. If you’re staying in the Chicago area, the answer is simple. If you’re not, channel your inevitable college nostalgia into recreating a campus gameday whenever NU comes to the New York area (which it will once Rutgers enters the Big Ten) or the Bay Area (like this football season’s opener on Aug. 31) or whenever life is taking you. A degree may mark the end of college, but it doesn’t have to mark the end of college spirit.
