Records APPEARANCE FROM missing MILO IN THE WORKS in Study Abroad College Republicans close to contracting controversial speaker. JASON ROCHLIN Daily Titan

International programs lack documentation to meet safety standards. BRANDON PHO Daily Titan Cal State Fullerton has seen a nearly 100 percent participation increase in a study abroad program that is lacking safety records. A number of “control weaknesses” were reported in the program in an internal audit of CSUF’s “International Activities” released this year by the CSU System’s Office of Audit and Advisory Services. As of a July 18 board meeting, CSUF has only satisfied one of six safety recommendations from the audit. In her recent Convocation Address for the fall 2017 semester, CSUF President Mildred Garcia lauded a 97 percent participation increase in the program. “This University continues to support and value international study and travel for our faculty and staff,” Garcia said. That “value” isn’t reflected in the weaknesses noted in the audit, such as the lack of a documented process for selecting third-party providers of study abroad programs. SEE RECORDS


The CSUF College Republicans club is finalizing plans to have Milo Yiannopoulos speak in the Titan Student Union Pavilions. College Republicans club president Emeritus Chris Boyle said the paperwork to reserve the space is on club president Amanda McGuire’s desk and that once the reservation is final, they can finalize details with Yiannopoulos who “doesn’t want to commit himself if he doesn’t know if he’s going to have a space.” “I’d say it’s about a step away before everything just needs to be signed,” Boyle said. “We’re pretty close to sealing the deal on this.” Yiannopoulos is a provocative, right-wing personality and former Breitbart News editor. Violent protests broke out at UC Berkeley when he was slated to speak there in February. “We have students all across the spectrum that feel an entertainer like Milo Yiannopoulos is someone that is going to offer them a sort of experience that they desire in terms of representation that they feel the university has yet to offer,” Boyle said. Boyle said the club has been talking with Student Life and Leadership, University Conference Spaces

and the University Police Department. SLL Director Vincent Vigil confirmed that the College Republicans club has talked with them about bringing Yiannopoulos to campus. Vigil said SLL monitors free-speech activities on campus when there are outdoor rallies, marches or speakers, like when preachers come to campus. However, the

plans for Yiannopoulos would be outside of his jurisdiction because the event would be inside the TSU. “We try not to talk about or promote guest speakers until a contract is signed because we can be held liable if we try to promote something when a contract has not been signed,” Vigil said. Interim Associate Director of the TSU Jeff Fehrn said the club initially made a request in May to reserve a space. “We’re still getting details and we’re still waiting on signatures,” Fehrn said. “I’ve got to get details down on paper so they can sign them.” University Police Capt. Scot Willey said University Police was not able to discuss any details regarding Yiannopoulos because “nothing has been finalized on that.” Boyle also said the club has been in contact with the Fullerton Police Department Chief of Police David Hendricks and

Mayor Bruce Whitaker to “make sure we’re coordinating with the locality” in case there is a large community involvement. Hendricks said he has not heard f r o m


anyone regarding Yiannopoulos in an email. At the time of this report, Whitaker could not be reached for comment. Students for Quality Education started a petition on to let

“the CSUF Administration know that we do not want Milo Yiannopoulos or any other ‘alt-right’ figures on our campus.” The petition is set to be delivered to nine individuals and groups, including University President Mildred Garcia, Interim Provost Anil Puri, the University Police Department and Associated Students Inc. It has received 3,103 signatures as of Aug. 27.

“The way we found out was through the administration because we’re a political group on campus and we’ve had problems with the Republicans group in the past,” said SQE member Liz Sanchez. Sanchez was not willing to divulge which member of the administration gave them the information. Chief Communications Officer Jeffrey Cook said that Yiannopoulos coming to campus would not be a university-sponsored event. “Mr. Yiannopoulos is certainly a very controversial figure, but it’s not the administration’s role to decide who can and cannot express their viewpoints on campus,” Cook said. “While many people here and in the community beyond may find his remarks distasteful, if not totally objectionable, even hateful speech is protected speech.” However, he said once the contract is finalized and the College

Republicans have a date and time reserved, the university will be planning to help assure the safety and security of the campus community. “I think the university is realistic about the kinds of planning that need to take place and the kinds of assessments that need to take place both in the short term and the longer term,” Cook said. A n y campus club registered by SLL can rent space in the TSU for anything from weekly meetings, to guest speakers through the University Conference Center on TitanLink. “We do not differentiate between any club. For any student group who wants to reserve a room we go through the exact same process,” said ASI Associate Executive Director Keya Allen. Allen said the TSU is filled daily and rooms often get rented on a firstcome, first-served basis. TSU staff helps clubs accommodate a speaker once a contract is signed but has no involvement in booking the guest. “Sometimes we have a ton of preplanning. It kind of depends on your reservation,” Fehrn said. “We’ve got weekly meetings where students in clubs are here for an hour a week and there’s very minimal planning, then all the way up to huge events where we are doing month’s worth of activities trying to figure things out.” SEE MILO


Volleyball sweeps two games in Titan Tourney CSUF bounces back after its only loss against Drake. KATHRYNE PADILLA Daily Titan Cal State Fullerton women’s volleyball had a rough 2016 season, ending with a record of 6-24. The Titans were also picked to finish last in the Big West 2017 Preseason Coaches Poll, but they aren’t letting either dull their enthusiasm for the upcoming campaign. “Personally, I think we could end top four or more. We’re more than capable this year. We have a lot of intense talent. The freshman are great. The transfers are great,” said junior outside hitter Madeline Schneider said. Titans Head Coach Ashley Preston said she didn’t see the ranking as a “shock,” and that she can also see some positives to the team being overlooked. “It doesn’t really phase me. It is what I expected it to be,” Preston said. “I like being an underdog, it makes

more movement.” The Titans’ 2-1 start to the season saw them beat Fairleigh Dickinson University and Bryant University. Their first loss to Drake University during their season-opening Titan Tournament has done nothing to dampen their spirits. The Titans’ main goal this season is to aim for the Big West title, a far cry from the many hardships they faced last season, one being accountability within their team. However, as their summer training progressed and preseason began, the Titans said that they have come together and changed each other’s attitudes. “Last year, we let way too many things slide,” Schneider said. “One thing we’re working on is progressive talk.” As the team enters the 2017 season, they are focused on strengthening their bonds. “We really put a focus on changing the culture and changing our mindset as a team and what we are going to do to make ourselves better, and we’ve done a lot of different things.

2 NEWS Migrant workers earn their diplomas


CSUF High School Equivalency Program encourages education. RAYMOND PELAYO Daily Titan

Around 70 local agricultural workers found themselves in a place they never thought they would be Saturday. With the support of their onlooking families, graduates from Cal State Fullerton’s High School Equivalency Program received their diplomas in Clayes Performing Arts Center, a continuation of the program’s effort to bring education to local migrant workers. “Today we start new

traditions,” said Associate Dean of the College of Education, Teshia Roby, Ph.D. in regards to sending migrant laborers to college, some of whom may be the first in their families. The event’s student speaker, Laura Muñoz reinforced this statement in her address to her classmates. Despite each student’s personal struggles, every HEP graduate has started a new journey founded on education, Muñoz said. “(The students), like me, came here to fight and overcome their losses.” HEP hosted their ceremony in collaboration with campus organizations Hermanos Unidos y Hermanas Unidas de CSUF, Club TEACH and the DREAM

Co-op. The event’s brochure stated that CSUF’s program has helped around 100 local agricultural workers obtain their high school equivalency certificate in its first two years, while running on a five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Alongside educational support, HEP also offers school supplies, textbooks, transportation and childcare. “A big part of the program is identifying the challenges a student has,” said Program Director Patricia Feliz. For Feliz, HEP’s graduation ceremony is the culmination of sacrifices each student’s family member has made. The sacrifices can be as small as cooking dinner or being mindful of a parent’s need for a distraction-free study environment. “It takes a whole family for each of these graduates to succeed,” HEP Principle Investigator Pablo Jasis, Ph.D. said.

NICHOLE TORRES Daily Titan As the moon began to block the rays of the sun by what seemed to be a quarter of an inch, a rare global event took place Monday. The Cal State Fullerton physics department hosted a campus viewing of the solar eclipse Monday, inspiring many to view the natural phenomenon. Hundreds of students and families gathered on the lawn in front of Dan Black Hall, hoping to spot the once-ina-lifetime event. Although there was a lengthy line to see the eclipse with proper telescopes, many enjoyed the sight with eclipse-safe glasses. “It’s a nice time to step back and see ourselves as part of a universe that’s doing these incredible, astronomical things,” said physics professor Jocelyn Read. Television monitors sat underneath a tent on the lawn for many to view NASA’s live streaming of the eclipse, while others used index cards

with pinholes provided by the department to see the shadow the eclipse casted. “The fact that there is a total eclipse in the U.S. has really built awareness, because that’s a more rare event,” Read said. Read, along with other faculty members from the department, were at the event to assist and answer questions anyone had. “It’s fantastic to see so many people excited about it; we have these astronomical events every couple of years,” Read said. A total eclipse was only visible in a narrow portion of the United States, while the rest of North America, some parts of Europe, South America and Africa got a partial glimpse, according to NASA’s website, Although Fullerton was not in the path of totality — which means certain regions in the path are able to view the moon’s shadow on the earth — the viewing of a partial eclipse still enticed many for different reasons. For CSUF alumna and Children’s Center staff member Jennie Imatomi, who heard about the event through the campus newsletter, it was the event’s rarity. “It’s a big deal because it

might not happen again in a while,” Imatomi said. Christina Previti, one of the members in the crowd, found the solar eclipse viewing as an opportunity to bond with her 13-year-old daughter. “I wanted to share this experience with her, it’ll be something that she’ll remember for many years to come.

We’ll always remember it,” Previti said. The solar eclipse drew upon the interest of many, and created a unique start to the fall semester. Those who missed the solar eclipse will have to wait a while for the next one visible across North America, which won’t occur until April 8, 2024.

examining contracts for odd demands. “The university does not sign any contracts for speakers,” Vigil said. “The student president of that organization does that. So we are very hands off when it comes to contracts, but we will help advise them in

terms of what they should be looking for.” Boyle said the College Republicans club is “by no means a Milo Yiannopoulos fan club,” but that conservative figures who have spoken on campus in the past have mostly represented business leaders.

“While many speakers have come on campus in support for left-leaning values, (conservative students) feel there have not been enough people associated with popular culture speaking respective conservative values on campus,” Boyle said.

Such third parties may include other institutions or nonprofit, non-governmental organizations, said CSUF Chief Communications Officer Jeff Cook in an email. The Council on International Educational Exchange, the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIF) and ieiMedia are some of the third-party organizations that provide programs to CSUF students. The report went on to cite “transparency regarding relationships with third-party providers,” as one of the necessary causes for such documentation of the providers. The school concurred with the report’s recommendation, and promised to provide written

documentation of its process for selecting third-party providers by Oct. 31. “Processes are in place, and will be provided in written format to the Chancellor’s Office by the date indicated,” Cook said. It remains to be seen whether or not the school is still on schedule to meet that deadline. “The next update will be provided at the September (CSU Board of Trustees) meeting,” said public affairs manager for the CSU Chancellor’s Office, Elizabeth Chapin in an email. “The Committee on Audit provides a report for every CSU Board of Trustees meeting that provides a matrix that has a status report on current or past audit assignments.” Other recommendations

made by the audit were documentation of the school’s study abroad training sessions, pre-departure orientations, the study abroad program development process, international student orientation and the school’s emergency response protocols for travelling students and faculty. The school concurred with all the recommendations in the report and provided dates by which they will have satisfied them. All recommendations are scheduled to be satisfied before the end of the fall 2017 semester, according to the report. In a Board of Trustees Meeting earlier this year, CSU Vice Chancellor and Chief Audit Officer Larry Mandel said an “informal policy” requires 50 percent of recommendations be

completed within six months and that all recommendations be completed within 10 months, unless there is proper reason for an extended period. “If the six month and/or 10 month targets are surpassed, the campus is contacted,” Mandel said. Cook said the school has since satisfied the report’s recommendation on emergency preparedness. “Emergency response processes have been in place, and the auditors recommended they be documented in written format as well,” Cook said. “Supportive documentation was submitted to and accepted by the Chancellor’s Office of Audit and Advisory Services, and the recommendation was formally closed.”


FEATURES 3 1976 CSUF Massacre: then and now MONDAY AUGUST 28, 2017

Shooting’s effects still present today for those involved. ANITA HUOR Daily Titan

A regular summer day for students and faculty at Cal State Fullerton turned deadly 41 years ago, leaving behind painful memories that would haunt many of those involved for the rest of their lives. On the morning of Monday, July 12, 1976, CSUF custodian Edward Charles Allaway shot nine people, killing seven and wounding two. Allaway had a history of mental-health issues and often caused fights at previous jobs, which led to a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia after the shooting. According to Allaway’s testimony, he believed that a group of gay men were plotting to murder him and that pornographic films starring his wife were being made by his co-workers. He believed all of this was happening right under his nose in what is now Cal State Fullerton’s Pollak Library. These factors motivated his gun-toting rampage that stood as the largest mass shooting in Orange County until the Seal Beach shooting at a beauty salon in 2011. On July 9, 1976 Allaway purchased a .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle from a Kmart in Buena Park. On that same day, his wife filed for divorce. After the shooting, Allaway fled to the Hilton Inn in Anaheim near his wife’s workplace. From there, he called the police and surrendered himself. Paul K. Miller, a then 28-year-old student affairs manager, still works

for CSUF despite a brief retirement. Upon arriving to work on July 12, 1976 Miller walked up the stairs from the loading dock to the stairway of the southeast corner of the Pollak Library. There he noticed Stephen L. Becker, the son of the founding dean of students, lying on the ground at the bridge between the library and the Education Classrooms building. Becker, who served as a library assistant, was surmised to have wrestled for the rifle when Allaway was going up the elevator to search for more people from his list to potentially harm. During the fight, Becker was shot. Miller said Becker are credited with “potentially saving additional lives.” Miller saw Stephen’s father, Ernest A. Becker, coming from Langsdorf Hall and informed him that his son was wounded and en route to St. Jude Hospital. Miller encouraged him to ride in the ambulance with his son, who died on the way to the hospital. Allaway’s sister, who was also a custodian, originally invited Allaway to California from Michigan as she knew he was having trouble there. “She didn’t realize either, necessarily, that he would be capable of doing this,” Miller said. “Sadly, within two years after the shooting, she committed suicide. She jumped off the Humanities building.” Miller said Allaway’s sister’s suicide sparked a series of suicides on campus, in which people would jump off the Humanities building and McCarthy Hall. As a preventive measure, grates were installed to the higher floors of those two buildings along the outdoor walkways, where they still are today. “We had people coming

here to take their own life because we kind of became the Golden Gate Bridge of Southern California as a result of that tragedy,” said Miller. Patricia Alzaman is the daughter of Frank Teplansky, another victim of Allaway’s. Since the tragedy in 1976, she’s worked tirelessly for over 40 years to ensure her father’s killer is never released back into society. She believes his release would set a dangerous precedent that could allow other mass murderers who are declared mentally ill to be set free. Alzaman remembers fearing for her father’s life when she heard about the shooting over the radio. After many attempts, Alzaman got a hold of someone at the school at 3 p.m., several hours after the shooting occurred, and was directed to CSUF President Loran Donald Shields, who told her that her father was still alive but had been taken to St. Jude Hospital in Fullerton. “I jumped in the car. I didn’t even know where St. Jude was and I didn’t know where I was going to go,” Alzaman said. Her husband stopped her at the street corner and drove Alzaman to the hospital himself. Teplansky died at St. Jude Hospital later that day. “My father died in my arms with my hand in his,” Alzaman said. Because of this painful experience, Alzaman had no plans to speak to Allaway. It was not until she was informed Allaway had cancer that she thought he would finally tell the truth, so she agreed to a meeting with Allaway. “After five minutes, I knew he wasn’t going to tell me anything. He pretended he didn’t even know my dad’s

name,” Alzaman said. Alzaman argued that Allaway’s actions leading up to the event showed he had carefully thought out his plans, as he had asked about the jamming mechanism for his gun and also asked one of the librarians about the laws concerning concealed weapons on campus. With the help of senators as well as other “very important people”, she was able to make Patton State Hospital, where Allaway was sentenced to, a more secure facility. However, much to Alzaman’s dismay, early last summer in 2016 Allaway was transferred from Patton State Hospital to the less secure, Napa State Hospital. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office and family members of the victims were not notified. “We are becoming more and more liberal about releasing criminals that really shouldn’t be on the street. We need to find solutions, better solutions,” Alzaman said. Debbie Paulsen, an English and literature master’s student, was also an employee in the library, and was fatally shot by Allaway. Paul Paulsen, Debbie’s brother, heard about the shooting on the radio and quickly made his way to CSUF fearing for his sister’s life. As he was questioned by a detective, he saw his sister’s name on a notepad with a “D” next to it. “I instantly learned the harsh reality that ‘D’ meant dead,” Paul Paulsen said. Paul Paulsen was then directed to a corridor to identify his sister. “Her lifeless body was in a pool of blood where she was chased down and shot in the back at point blank range and the hardest part for me, still, is witnesses have testified in

court that after she was shot, she slumped to the floor and he just stood over her and watched her bleed to death. She was such a compassionate, gentle soul. For her to die in such a violent manner, in my mind, is one of life’s cruelest ironies,” Paul Paulsen said. The judge ruled that Allaway could not be held responsible for his actions for “reasons of insanity,” partly for being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Since the ordeal, he has been transferred to three different state hospitals. Since he is considered a mental patient, Allaway has the opportunity to ask for release every other year. Out of the five times Allaway has asked for release, he was rejected every time except for one instance when he withdrew the request himself. “I think that the irony is that we, the victims, the survivors, are the ones who have been given a life sentence

because we are the ones who have to deal with it every single day of our lives,” Paul Paulsen said. A beautiful quiet spot on campus that students may not be aware of is the Memorial Grove located between the Pollak Library and the Kinesiology & Health Science Building. Seven Stone pine trees were planted, one for each casualty of the shooting, along with a memorial gravestone engraved with all nine names (including the two who survived their gunshot wounds) to cherish the victims’ memories. A peaceful candlelight vigil for the fallen victims was held last year in honor of the 40th anniversary of the tragedy. Time hasn’t dulled Paulsen and Alzaman’s efforts to prevent Allaway’s release. “We continue, to this day, to go to court to block his release. It never changes, it’s been an ongoing nightmare for all of us, from the beginning of ‘76,” Paul Paulsen said.

4 A&E OC Night Market remixes cuisines


Passionate vendors experiment with street food over summer. SARAH EL-MAHMOUD Daily Titan The familiar diversity of Southern California cuisine took on new flavors at the OC Night Market in Costa Mesa. Pho tacos, ramen burgers, chocolate sushi and ice cream tacos were just a few of the many unique combinations vendors created. Chef Kenneth Nguyen of Rakken Tacos has been a vendor at the OC Night Market since the series began with the 626 Night Market in Arcadia six years ago. Nguyen alluded to a Los Angeles food movement that started out with scattered food trucks that slowly started to join forces and hold events together. The food truck phenomenon is said to have begun in LA with Kogi BBQ in 2008 when Roy Choi’s Korean taco truck started a movement defined by cuisine fusions and advanced by using social media. The rigidity of regional dishes knew no bounds with the combinations served at the OC Night Market. Rakken Tacos’ specialty at the OC Night Market was Pho Tacos – pho meat that takes six hours to marinate, served shredded on a flour tortilla topped with hoisin sauce. “We’ve been able to go through maybe seven or eight iterations of different types of cuisines. Originally I started out with Japanese food, then went to Vietnamese food, then I combined a bunch of it because I have family that are Latinos so I was able to really fuse four or five different types of foods (to become) what we are today,” Nguyen said.

A few booths away, Cal State Long Beach student Candice Cheung flipped “Wagyu Ramen Burgers” from Rated R Burger. The hamburger buns are replaced with two stacks of fried ramen. Her bosses (who have careers in banking aside from their side-street food endeavors) found the idea on the internet. They wanted to share this rare recipe and felt the night market was the perfect place. “I think the concept of the (night market) is really smart because I remember when it was really small, it definitely wasn’t the same,” Cheung said. “It grew so fast with so many booths. I really like it, and I think a lot of people enjoy it too because you get to try food from everywhere.” Cocolabs was a new addition to the Night Market this year. The science-themed booth offered fresh organic drinks served in chemistry lab glassware, along with toppings called “reactants” which are poured in from test tubes. Kenny Yuen, his brother and one of their friends started Cocolabs this year because they love agua frescas and wanted to bring something new to the fair that no one had seen before. They also felt that the fresh drinks would lure visitors in because it compliments all the fried and sweet food sold there. Their friend’s career at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory inspired them to go for the science theme. OOH BAE ice cream tacos, sweet purple yam ice cream with mochi, coconut and edible gold toppings, from The Milky Way were selling fast. Ashley Tran, a 20-year-old college student, crafted this unique dessert along with the rest of the menu from The Milky Way. She was inspired this

summer to open up the booth by her sister Michelle who runs Norigami, a booth that sells sushi tacos. Ever since they were little girls, Tran and her sister loved to cook. They would experiment with all types of cultural foods like Indian, Middle Eastern and Ethiopian. “If chefs made a lot of money, I would be a chef, but I’m going to be an engineer and then open a restaurant,” Tran said. “I’m trying to follow two different dreams.” Since visitors of the market tend to capture photos of their finds before digging in, Tran made it a priority to make her food Instagram-worthy and aesthetically pleasing. Long lines started to form throughout the venue as the sun set and more foodies made their way to the booths. Tran recommended visitors

‘Death Note’ ignores its origins Asian culture falls into the background in Hollywood adaption.

KATHERINE ABANDO Daily Titan Netflix’s film adaptation of the manga series “Death Note” was released Friday and was immediately met with backlash. The film continues the whitewash casting controversy and displays an ignorance to the source material’s Japanese origins. Today, the relationship between the Asian-American community and Hollywood faces nuanced, but apparent problems. Hollywood continues to cast Asian characters with white actors in manga adaptions like “Death Note” and in the 2017 film, “Ghost in the Shell.” Roy Lee and Dan Lin, the producers of “Death Note,” are Asian-Americans who see their film adaptation as “a universal theme that knows no racial boundaries.” The primary antagonist of the film, Detective L is played by African-American actor Lakeith Stanfield. During an interview with The Verge, Stanfield said that labeling Netflix’s FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @THEDAILYTITAN

version of “Death Note” as “whitewashing” is “a fundamental misunderstanding” by critics. “This film takes place in Seattle, in America. So it would make sense that the cast reflects American demographics,” Stanfield told The Verge. He added that even though their version of “Death Note” is Americanized, there is an Asian character. Paul Nakauchi plays Detective L’s assistant, Watari. He has the largest role of any Asian actor in the film although his time on screen is limited. The inclusion of Nakauchi in “Death Note” doesn’t fulfill the material’s narrative because it puts the Asian-American community in the background instead of allowing its members to be the heroes of their own stories. It shows a disregard to look for Asian actors who can represent their community. In “Death Note,” Light Turner (Nat Wolff) and Mia Sutton (Margaret Qualley) write criminals’ names into a notebook called Death Note, to magically end violence in the world. Their alias, Kira (which is a transliteration of the word “killer” in Japanese) slaughters people in a nightclub in Japan. The reason to why this scene targeted Japanese people is not specified. This scene limits the focus on Japanese people to only a sequence of violence and continues an ongoing narrative of unimportance toward

the Asian-American community. CSUF Asian American studies professor Dom Magwili, says that the movie industry shouldn’t consciously avoid casting Asian actors. It should be actively looking to place them in parts. “If it is an Asian manga, you should do more than toss an Asian person to meet the quota,” Magwili said. “‘Death Note’s’ whitewashing extends the discussion on Hollywood not looking hard enough to fulfill diverse roles.” Part of the reason Hollywood isn’t looking harder for animated adaptations could be because the characters can pass as white. Anime characters are often identified as racially ambiguous leading people to presume they are white. Assuming manga characters are white ignores the origins of the characters. Light Yagami’s name, which was changed to Light Turner in “Death Note,” originated from Japan, not the United States. Asian-Americans have minimal roles in Hollywood and are usually reduced to background or stereotypical roles. When a designated role for Asians are cast as white, it becomes an issue for the community. “Death Note” is a reminder of how Hollywood disregards origins of Asian characters. If Asian actors were casted as main characters more often, the film industry wouldn’t be criticized for their lack of interest in reaching out to a more diverse audience.

NASA isn’t given the credit it deserves

Scientists need more recognition for their achievements.

SOPHIA ACEVEDO Daily Titan After the few fleeting moments spent gazing up at the sun (hopefully not directly) to look at the solar eclipse on Monday, most people went back to their average routines without considering the time scientists spent in preparation. NASA’s scientists spent countless hours of research developing a timeline for the solar eclipse, making sure people would be aware of the event. Their work went down like many of NASA’s projects: underappreciated and unrecognized. The names of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Sally Ride sound familiar and received notable praise in their time, yet no one can recall the names or faces of current NASA employees who work hours on end. Peggy Whitson, Randolph Bresnik and Scott Colloredo are brilliant minds who deserve to be recognized for their achievements. There was a time when people gained a natural interest in NASA’s developments. With the Cold War brewing, the Space Race received

remarkable attention. Memorable launches like Apollo 11 were watched in the ‘60s and fear certainly contributed to that attention. Today, there is no Space Race within the U.S. which makes it less interesting to the public since there is no competition. Still, people should know that astronauts live in space at this very moment, experiencing different routines and struggles from the rest of society. Astronauts definitely don’t have dull lifestyles. They’re rockstars, but the general public cares about them as fleetingly as they did the eclipse. Scott Kelly exercised for more than 700 hours in his year-long mission to space to keep his bones, muscles and heart strong, according to NASA’s website. He also watched 10,944 sunrises and sunsets in comparison to the only 684 viewable from Earth. The public’s lack of reverence for NASA also leaves a lost opportunity for good role models. Many people simply aren’t aware that on Sept. 2 astronaut Peggy Whitson will return from space, holding the new record for most cumulative days spent in space. The previous record was set by Jeff Williams, with a record of 534 days. Historic moments like these should not be ignored. Imagine the young girls who could be motivated to pursue science if they were familiar with Peggy Whitson and her accomplishments. NASA also helps bring the public information about water and ice sheets on Earth through the Gravity


Proper appreciation for NASA employees was never given following the solar eclipse, it seemed as though people had already moved past the event, which scientists had dedicated many hours of research.

Recovery and Climate Experiment. This allows changes in climate to be interpreted, especially conditions that reflect a drought. By recognizing these changes, communities nearby can get a better understanding of their water resources. People also remain blind to NASA’s selective funding. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017 focused primarily on exploration and ignores all other projects. Despite all the

ideas bubbling in their heads, not all of these projects can continue if politicians fail to see the hard work NASA dedicates to understanding both space and Earth. And like with most areas in life, the public needs to make sure that politicians see the importance in NASA’s developments in exploring the solar system as well as Earth. It’s understandable that science doesn’t interest everyone, but if history has taught anything, it’s that experiments like NASA’s can pave

the way for many revolutionary developments. Science has helped the public better understand things like the human body and the force of gravity. Reading about an astronaut or mission brings about awareness of an organization that is still undergoing many discoveries. More importantly, people can attribute faces and names to developments that could eventually change the current understanding of space. So scroll through NASA’s

website, watch a clip about a new project or read about an astronaut. NASA’s missions and findings shouldn’t just be temporarily marveled at and then forever forgotten. Discoveries and shared information like the solar eclipse deserve to have names and faces remembered with these achievements. Scientists, mathematicians and astronauts deserve to be recognized and appreciated for their accomplishments now. Not in the future.

Cure for homesickness is connectivity

Becoming more social is vital to preventing homesickness.

CODY GION Daily Titan College students leave a lot more than just family behind when moving out of the house for the first time. They leave their familiar culture, safe spaces and social groups to dive into a new environment where they’re expected to function properly. The separation anxiety

developed from this experience is commonly referred to as homesickness. Homesickness finds its way to nearly everyone on campus at some point, and it’s easy to let it become debilitating. During this time, it is important for college students to be more socially active and involved with the campus because depression can become an issue. “Homesickness is a feeling of longing and desire for familiar environments,” said assistant professor of human communications studies Tara Suwinyattichaiporn. “That’s why they say you are missing home, because that’s the familiar environment where you feel the most connected, happiest and have social support.” Recreating the exact setting of home is impossible. Nothing can replace


the feeling of home since it has been a major part of the student’s life, but creating a friendly environment is achievable and necessary. It can be challenging for some, but crafting another familiar environment to establish social support is vital to overcoming homesickness. The first step in obtaining social support is to become socially interactive. There are over 375 different clubs and organizations that focus on various topics and needs for students at CSUF. Picking a club results in meeting and surrounding oneself with other students with a common interest, in turn making it easier to find a second home. “You have to first feel more socially connected to others in that new environment,” Suwinyattichaiporn said. “It would mean

immersing yourself in social meetup groups, going to university events, school gyms and joining different clubs.” Establishing a familiar environment will eliminate the feeling of isolation. While being socially active and engaged with others, students are also learning their new culture, people and environment. Speaking out in classes and participating is a good way to interact with others without having to step out into an unfamiliar environment. It might be easier to sit back and quietly make one’s way through classes but that’s not what college is about. Suwinyattichaiporn recommends that students take the initiative and say “Hi” to those sitting around them in class, rather than staying

isolated on their phones. The feeling of social disconnectedness is a big factor in fueling homesickness. “Having that social connection with people is the solution to homesickness,” Suwinyattichaiporn said. Making social connections within class also offers other benefits. A student now has the option to study with someone else or to study alone, depending on their preference. Creating new relationships is just as important as maintaining old relationships. It is highly recommended to moderately keep in contact with family members and familiar friends. Students should gradually decrease the number of phone calls to family and friends back home starting the first week of school. Instead, homesick students

should write longer, more well thought out letters to family and friends with less frequency than the texts and calls they were sending before, according to Allegheny College’s website. Reducing the quantity of messages sent and raising the quality of the messages sent can help alleviate the feeling of homesickness among college students over time. Depression is never an easy obstacle to overcome and should never be wished upon anyone. Fight against depression and homesickness by getting involved with one of the many clubs offered on campus. Spark conversation whenever possible in class or in public. Following all these tips can hopefully lower feelings of disconnectedness among students.


6 SPORTS Men’s soccer drops season opener


Titans finish the weekend 1-1 after falling to Clemson. KAILA CRUZ Daily Titan

Cal State Fullerton men’s soccer went 1-1 over the weekend, losing its season opener 2-0 to the Clemson University Tigers Friday before rebounding with a 1-0, double-overtime win over Wofford College Sunday. Game 1 Fullerton dropped its season opener 2-0 to No. 5 Clemson Friday after battling hard for the whole game. The first half was slow for the Titans, as Clemson scored the first goal 18 minutes into the game courtesy of forward Jason Wright. A second-half takedown in the goal box from CSUF defender Daniel Adoo resulted in a yellow card and a penalty-kick goal for Clemson. It allowed the Tigers to extend their lead 2-0. The chippy contest saw Corentin Ohlmann and Alex Juarez get shown yellow cards as well. CSUF was even with Clemson statistically in almost every category but the one that determined the result. Both teams ended the game with 13 shots and five corner kicks. Fullerton put three of its 13 shots on goal while Clemson had four on target, ultimately sneaking two past the Titans. CSUF goalkeeper Paul-Andre Guerin ended the game with two saves and Clemson’s Ximo Miralles totaled three. Game 2 In their second game of the season, the Titans beat Wofford College 1-0 in the 106th minute of the game


Cal State Fullerton senior forward Samuel Goni gave the Titans their first goal of the season in their double-overtime win over Wofford College and now leads the team in goals. His goal clinched the Titans’ first win of the season. The Titans are now 1-1.

when Samuel Goni put the Titans on top in the second overtime. The Titans controlled the first half of the game by racking up five corner kicks,

but failed to take advantage of their opportunities. By the end of the first 45 minutes the Titans led in shots (2-1), corner kicks (5-0), and fouls (8-3).

In the second half of the game, Fullerton continued to dominate with eight shots on goal while Wofford only had one. However, the Titans couldn’t find the back of the

net, sending the game into double overtime. Goni’s first goal of the season came at an opportune time for the Titans, allowing them to escape Spartanburg,

South Carolina with their first win of the year. The Titans will take their next pitch Sept. 1 when they host Santa Clara in their home opener.

8 SPORTS Women’s soccer stays undefeated


Fullerton ties twice in double OT over the weekend. MARIANA VERA Daily Titan

Cal State Fullerton women’s soccer kept its undefeated record intact with two double-overtime ties over the weekend against No. 17 BYU and the Utah State Aggies. Game 1 The Titans fought to keep their perfect record at South Field Friday night, ending their match against BYU in a 1-1 draw. Trouble struck in the 26th minute, when Avery Walker’s goal gave BYU a 1-0 lead. CSUF senior Samantha Koemans quickly answered with her second goal of the season to even up the match in the first half, allowing Fullerton to stay undefeated when neither side could scratch in regulation or overtime. Game 2 The Titans did not waste time getting on the board in their second match. Sophomore forward Atlanta

Primus’ second goal of the season gave CSUF an early 1-0 lead in the third minute of the game. Despite the Titans outshooting Utah 8-3 in the first half, Aggies forward Amber Marshall tied the game 1-1 in the 36th minute. The Titans continued to test Utah goalkeeper Sarah Cobb, but she held stout with seven saves. In the 59th minute, CSUF midfielder Alba Barrios received a red card and the Titans played at a disadvantage with only 10 players on the field for the rest of the match. Both teams played aggressively, as the Titans finished the end of the match with 11 fouls and the Aggies with 16 fouls and three yellow cards, but both were ultimately unable to find the back of the net once again. “(I am) really proud of our women today to come into Utah State to play a very good team,” Titans Head Coach Demian Brown told Cal State Fullerton Sports Media following the game. “We’re excited about getting home, getting back to training and looking for the next win.” Fullerton will continue their undefeated journey on Sept. 1 at St. Mary’s at 3 p.m.


Cal State Fullerton forward Atlanta Primus scored her second goal of the season against BYU and is tied with Samantha Koemans and Sarah Fajnor for the most goals scored by any member of the Titans this season.

Tourney: Titans start season strong CONTINUED FROM


The team allows themselves to let loose during the song to release any nerves they have and increase their energy before the first set. The Titans have also agreed they will never superstitiously blame the song for the outcome of any of their matches. “It holds us accountable this year, and makes sure

that we aren’t blaming other situations. It’s us at the end of the day, to win or lose a game,” Schneider said. The Titans demonstrated all their hard work from summer training in their first season game against the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights by leading their first set in the match with 17 kills. The Knights upped their offense midway through

the second set. However, this did not set the Titans back. They were able to regain their momentum to finish the first two sets before ultimately ending with a 3-0 win. “We played as a unit and as a team, and we played with a lot of communication and energy. That’s all I wanted to see in this first game,” Bowman said The Titans faced a new level of competition as

they entered their second match against the Drake Bulldogs. The Titans fell behind in the first set of the match, 25-20, but bounced back and won the next two. Drake then returned the favor, sweeping the final two sets to take a 3-2 victory. “It was kind of our first little taste in a five-set intense match. We made a lot of errors. We kind of took our foot off the gas

pedal,” said junior left outside hitter Cady Francis. In its final match of the tournament, Fullerton was able to rebound from its only loss, dominating in a 3-0 sweep over the Bryant Bulldogs. “Each person wrote, yesterday after our match, on the board what we’re going to do for our team, and I think each person whole heartedly worked on that during our match,” said

freshman libero Savahna Costello. This is just the beginning of Fullerton’s season and the Titans say they’ll continue to rely on their bonds and accountability as they try to reach their lofty goals. “We’re really just going hard and focusing on the simple things. We go back to our cues if we mess up,” said sophomore middle blocker Aniya Henry.
