On-campus tours make a difference POSITIVE UND tour guides give prospective students the first impression of campus. JAYE MILLSPAUGH THEDAKOTASTUDENT

Guided campus tours are a popular way for prospective students and their families to learn about UND. For many of them, this is their first time being exposed to the university in person. There are three tours occurring every day during the week at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., except on holidays. Participants meet in the lobby of the new Gorecki Alumni Center and have the option of an individual consultation with an admissions representative before heading out on a guided group tour with a student tour guide to see the various campus buildings. Based on tours attended by Dakota Student reporters, information provided during the tours is for the most part accurate and sums up what most students will experience at UND. With over 50 tour guides, many of which are new hires this semester, not all tours provide the same experience and no one can guarantee the quality of every single tour. “It does depend on the guide in general but they do a great job training us,” said tour guide Anne Hook, a senior from Thief River Falls, Minn. “They don’t send us out right away.

After our initial interview, we shadow a tour with another guide and then go on a tour by ourselves with our bosses who review our performance. There’s very extensive training.” Hook has been working as a tour guide since March 2011 and usually does three to four tours every two weeks during the academic year and up to five per day during the summer. According to admissions representative Phil Irwin, the amount of tours a typical guide gives depends on their availability, but guides can sign up for as many as they want. “The biggest things we look for when hiring a new tour guide are availability to lead many tours, excitement and passion about the university,” said Irwin. According to tour guide coordinator Tara Nelson, any current student who is a sophomore or higher can apply to be a tour guide and are allowed to stay until they graduate. “We don’t ever hire freshman because we want them to get the full experience as students first, but the ones who start as sophomores often stay for a long time,” said Nelson. Hook, who started as a sophomore, loves her job because she gets to share her experiences at UND but she also emphasized that no two students will have the same experience. “I’ve met with a lot of people from out-of-state, from places like Texas and Florida, who ask about how cold it gets and I try not to sugarcoat it,” said Irwin. “I tell them that it’s not

The North Dakota Senate Education Committee held a hearing Wednesday for testimonies relating to a bill to amend and re-enact the 2011 law capping annual increases of mandatory fees for students in the North Dakota University System at one percent of tuition. NDUS Chancellor Hamid Shirvani and three student lobbyists — two representing the North Dakota Student Association and one representing North Dakota State University — testified in support of the bill, intending to make permanent the current law set to expire

June 30. (Due to “a clerical error,” the text of the bill states it is only being extended to 2015; Johan Mahlum, one of the NDSA lobbyists present, said the bill will “almost certainly” be amended to instead make the law permanent.) “Everybody on the committee, everyone in the room was essentially in agreement that we want the one percent cap,” Mahlum said. “We’re just figuring out the exact text of the bill, what the exemptions will be.” The bill discussed is an emergency bill, meaning it would go into effect immediately after being signed into law by Gov. Jack Dalrymple as opposed to Aug. 1 after being filed with the North Dakota secretary of state. If the latter occurred, the month gap between the expiration date and start date would give universities the chance to increase fees more than one percent.

The committee — which is responsible for giving a “do pass” or “do not pass” recommendation to the Senate-at-large — ultimately decided to take no action on the bill for now. The state constitution allotted 80 days for the N.D. legislature to meet and for bills to be passed; this time elapses May 1. Both the current law and proposed bill state the only way fees could increase above and beyond one percent would be if the State Board of Higher Education either approved an individual institution’s request, provided it could give a detailed explanation proving “extraordinary circumstances,” or if the board approved an appeal from the institution’s student government. Committee members suggested the current bill allow for a campuswide referendum for potential

Shopping at UND Bookstore, “fun and always busy” BOOKS Getting semester materials is a positive experience for most UND students. JAYE MILLSPAUGH THEDAKOTASTUDENT

It’s approximately 1 p.m. on the first Wednesday of UND’s spring semester. A friendly middleaged woman in a green apron with “Angela” labelled on her nametag greets customers and hands out colorful taffy candies at the entrance to the UND Bookstore. Around 20 students wait in line to purchase their books for the semester and another 15 students browse for books in the textbook section in the back of the store. Located near the famous Ralph Engelstad Arena, the UND bookstore is the most well-known place on campus for students to obtain their textbooks every semester. Brand-new, gently used and digital textbooks are available for purchase and semester-long rentals. Students can also sell their used textbooks at the end of every semester for a fraction of the original purchase price. “I was overwhelmed the first time I came here last semester, but I found out that it’s way easier to find everything than it looks,” said UND freshman Jon Doll. Carrying seven books at once, Doll then headed to the register to-

[KEISUKE YOSHIMURA] THEDAKOTASTUDENT join the few dozen students waiting in line to pay for their items. Unlike many other students, he has yet to try to sell back any of his books. In order for a student to receive cash in exchange for a used book, the book must have all of its original pages, bindings and covers. There can’t be any visible damage such as ripped, stained or missing parts or excessive highlighting. All accompanying materials that originally came with the book, such as CDs and study guides must also be included. “There have only been a few times that they haven’t bought back a book of mine, but Dakota Textbooks didn’t want those books either,” UND senior Kyle Jefferson

said. Books that have been requested by professors for the following semester are always worth more, but as long as the book is a current edition, it could still be purchased back and sent to a bookstore at a different college or university that requested it. Due to the demands from professors and publishers, the bookstore’s employees don’t have a say in how much a book is worth or if that book’s edition will be used again. “The price is what the publisher tells us and then we charge slightly more than that,” said bookstore employee James Sulli-

[ZACK SCHUSTER]THEDAKOTASTUDENT The UND campus caters to 15,000 students and offers 200 fields of study.

Instead of fightThe residence halls are designed ing to be noticed amidst a mass of to be practical living spaces for stuother students, I have found this dents in close proximity to classes.

PERKS UND’s small and isolated location shouldn’t detract from the university’s appeal.

If there is a serious problem, that’s one thing, but most residence halls nationwide are designed to be functional, not luxurious. Most of the complaints I hear are associated with the added rules that come with living on campus, as well as the quality of food served in the dining centers. First of all, every time a student steps onto campus the university’s policies come into effect. By living on campus, a student agrees to maintain those policies while within the campus borders. Second, if students have a problem with the residence halls, they can always discuss ways to alleviate their concerns with their RAs or the housing office. Finally, if all else fails, after your freshman year you can always choose to move off campus, though sometimes this option is limited by scholarship requirements. However, I can guarantee that nearly every complaint students living in UND’s residence halls have is being echoed at other colleges nationwide. Considering the location and what we are given, UND is a great school in the midst of a transition into a research-oriented establishment. The fact that it is smaller than other state colleges is an advantage, not something to complain about. The relative freedom of this school prevents it from becoming high school v2.0 and, if students put forth a little initiative, offers more to them than many larger educational institutions. The inconveniences of college are often the same ones associated with life. If something isn’t working, fix it. Don’t just sit back and complain while life passes you by. Adam Christianson is a staff writer for The Dakota Student. He can be reached at adam.christianson @my.und.edu

It’s once again that awful time of year, when students across the nation are scraping the bottoms of their piggy banks in order to pay for required course textbooks. It’s a stomach turning feeling, watching your own hands fork over all that cash for books that are not Harry Potter or a sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Worse than that, the lines at the UND Bookstore are so long that it takes more time to pay for the books than to find them on shelves. Will there ever be a better solution to this issue? Sure, many students buy their textbooks online or use their friend’s old copy; but will there ever be a day where all material is accessible online or through a purchased application on a Kindle or iPad? Textbooks will likely be around longer than we’d like and there is no getting around that. Therefore, the editorial board of The Dakota Student would like to applaud the UND Bookstore for making the process as painless as they can. While it’s true that buying textbooks just plain sucks, going to the bookstore at peak hours during the first few days of the semester could be much worse. There is always a friendly face at the door to greet you and offer pleasantries, there are several staff members walking about the textbook section helping students find their courses and every register is open and efficient — which is a big deal. Could you imagine all those students waiting in line for three cashiers? We students are pushy, cheap and have little patience. This is why we hate buying books. True, Amazon.com can sometimes ship you a book in two days at nearly half the price, but there are some books you just can’t find on Amazon or are even more expensive online. And why do we buy books online? It is to avoid university bookstores. As a board, we do not like university bookstores — who does? But oddly, we have nothing negative to say this spring about our experiences at the UND Bookstore. Sure, the lines were long and the bills were hefty but it was overall a positive experience. We fell for your tricks of browsing for small goodies in the cashier line and we buckled under the pressure to rent — with the hopes that we don’t lose our books. We will probably continue to buy some of our books online in the future, but we can say for a fact that it is not totally painful to buy your books at the bookstore this spring. You might be eating Ramen for another couple of months and taking the bus instead of paying for gas, but you’ll feel all warm inside when the bookstore greeter flashes you her glowing smile and you get through checkout without a 10 minute nap. UND Bookstore, we salute you.

It took almost a full week for the first acknowledgements of the underlying mental health issues to surface, including President Barack Obama’s statement: “We need to work on making access to mental healthcare at least as easy as easy as access to a gun.” I think it’s pretty sad that one of the strongest calls for directing attention to mental health can fit in the 140 characters of a tweet. Mental health deserves our attention, not just when it can be tied to large-scale tragedy, but at all times. Mental health is not just an issue when the individual affected can no longer live their life to the fullest and can no longer function. Mental health is an issue always. It is important always. And we need to make it a national priority, through education and awareness initiatives, always. I suffer from depression. I suffer from anxiety.

Wasting time, not cash CHEAP Keeping yourself entertained doesn’t have to be a costly endeavour. Brandon becker THEDAKOTASTUDENT

The spring semester has officially begun — winter break is gone and the lazy days you’ve enjoyed the past few weeks are over. But don’t fret because lectures are back along with homework, quizzes and tests. While it’s important to focus on school, it’s equally as important to still have a life outside of it. Getting out and doing something you enjoy is necessary to survive the semester while remaining sane. Finding a balance between having too much fun and giving your studies the attention needed to succeed can be a challenge. Since Grand Forks doesn’t have many options for entertainment outside of bars, movie theatres, campus and sporting events and random shows at the Chester Fritz and Empire Arts Center, you’ll find yourself bored at times. Plus, entertainment usually costs money and most college students are more likely to be flush with debt than have money on hand. I’ve comprised a list of things to do that are guaranteed to reduce your stress level without reducing the cash in your wallet. Just dance I don’t care how good you are at busting a move — dancing is in-

credibly fun, gets the blood flowing and allows you to get lost in the music while living in the moment. So throw on your favorite Justin Bieber track and let loose. If you’re one who is shy and embarrassed at how you dance, you will want to do this when you are alone. You might want to check with your roommates to see when they’re coming, so they don’t walk in on you looking like a fool and start questioning why they chose to live with you. Belt it out Karaoke often scares people because they’re afraid they might have to go up in front of everyone and sing. Although there’s a good chance your friends will pressure you to do just that, we’ve all been taught how to say no to drugs, and the same techniques should apply in this circumstance as well. Grand Forks has numerous places that offer karaoke throughout the week, including: the Long Haul Saloon Casino & Sports Bar, The Ho Casino & Sports Bar and O’Really’s Irish Pub. For those who haven’t turned 21 yet, Rhombus Guys has karaoke Wednesdays at 10 p.m., although it becomes a bar at midnight. Even if you don’t like to sing or don’t want to, it’s still fun to listen to some fantastic singers and chuckle at the ones who aren’t. Build an igloo I have no idea how to build an igloo — nor do I care enough to learn how — but I know it can be done. Once you are done building

your igloo, spend a night in it — this will give you a greater appreciation that you have an actual roof over your head that isn’t made of snow. There’s a chance you may come out more stressed and possibly sick after your night in the igloo, but don’t worry, there is a solution. Find a sledgehammer and take out all your stress by destroying the igloo. I imagine this would be very therapeutic and more entertaining than squeezing a stress ball. Building an igloo may actually cost money because I’m not sure if you need anything in order to build an igloo, but I do know snow is free. Also, you can always invite friends to take part in the project — snuggling with one another at night to keep warm and bonding over destroying the igloo together. In the morning, head to Denny’s for a Grand Slam and some hot chocolate. Work it out This isn’t exactly entertainment, unless you enjoy people watching, but going for a run or pumping some iron has been proven to help with stress. The sore muscles in the beginning will be worth the longterm health gains. Technically, the Wellness Center isn’t free because it’s covered in student fees, but it certainly feels like it’s free since you aren’t swiping a debit card or handing over cash. Plus, it beats building and sleeping in an igloo. Brandon Becker is a staff writer for The Dakota Student. He can be reached at brandon.becker2 @my.und.edu

DANCE TEAM PREPS FOR

NATIONALS by Joy Jacobson

COMPETITION Team with freshman majority will travel to Orlando with Top Five aspirations after defeating rivals NDSU. The UND Dance Team will be traveling to Orlando on Jan. 17, where they will compete in the Universal Dance Association’s National Competition. The competition will be held at Disneyworld’s ESPN Wide World of Sports and is split into three divisions. UND’s Division One team consists of 15 young women, nine of whom are freshmen all new to the experience. “We’re excited and nervous, because we (freshmen) have never been to Nationals before,” said freshman dancer Mariah Miller. “The competition in college is a whole new level compared to high school.” Fellow freshman and teammate Angie Wokasch agreed with Miller. “We’re just really excited,” said Wokasch. “We don’t really know what to expect, but from what returners say it’s an incredible and once in a lifetime experience.” Fifth-year captain Leigha Wallin will be making her third trip to Nationals.

“My first year the team was really new to it and had never done Nationals before, but my co-captain and I had always dreamed of going,” said Wallin. “Last year when we went, we were one of 12 teams out of 40 that made it to finals, and got 10th place overall.” This is no small feat considering the intensity of the Division One competition. “Our division is the toughest,” said Wallin. “The difference in scores between first place and second place will be, like, one tenth of a point. Anyone can win it.” Wallin has even higher hopes for the 2012-13 team, and is ready for the challenge of achieving those goals. “We’re just starting to get our name out there,” said Wallin. “We have nothing to lose. We have a really, really good shot at the top five.” She has good reason to believe so, too. “This year, for the first time ever, we beat NDSU at a competition in Fargo,” said Wallin. “That was big for us, because they usually do really well at Nationals and, of course, there’s a big rivalry between UND and NDSU.” Since then, the team has been working overtime to prepare their jazz routine, an area

in which they have competed at the national level before, and pom routine, a first time endeavor at the national level, for the competition in Orlando. “We had to be back here on New Year’s Eve, and we started practice on New Year’s Day,” said Wallin. “We did two-a-days, along with a lot of team bonding.” Since classes have begun, the team has gone to one three-hour practice every night. “It came up so fast,” said Miller. “When we started the season it was like, ‘Nationals is so far away,’ and now we only have four practices left.” All of this time spent working and playing together has only brought members of the dance team closer. “Everybody gets along; everybody loves each other,” said Wallin. “It’s been a great experience to be on such a hardworking team,” said Wokasch. “Everyone wants the same thing.” The UND Dance Team has a Facebook page where people can follow their journey to Nationals. It can be found at www.facebook. com/UniversityOfNorthDakotaDanceTeam. Joy Jacobson is a staff writer for The Dakota Student. She can be reached at joy.jacobson@my.und.edu

[KEISUKE YOSHIMURA] THEDAKOTASTUDENT UND’s Multicultural Student Services program is located at the Era Bell Thompson Multicultural Center. MSS will host several events in the next few months.

In the Era Bell Multicultural Center, there is a comfort that gives it a sense of home. Previously a privately owned house, the big leather couches and table full of papers and candy inside give the students and faculty who enter a sense that it still is one. Located in the middle of campus, just east of Sigma Nu fraternity, the center is designed to reach out to students that “have to check a box” when applying to come to UND, according to Malika Carter,

director of Multicultural Student Services. Carter, who got her master’s degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration from the University of Vermont, moved to UND in 2011 after previously working for the Office of Multicultural Programs at North Dakota State University. After dedicating 5 years to NDSU, she was offered another opportunity at UND. The first Multicultural Center was dedicated on Dyke Avenue in 1979. It later adjusted to accomodate more cultures at UND and moved to its current location. “MSS is a comprehensive service oriented department that is for all people but focuses services on

OLLI@UND event promotes continuing education

LEARNING Lifelong students meet with faculty to discuss interests and fall classes KAITLIN BEZDICEk THEDAKOTASTUDENT

Imagine entering a college class where there are no tests, no grades and no prerequisite courses. In this class, all the students have a desire to learn and commitment to attend. There’s one other detail: the youngest person in the class is 50 years of age. Through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UND, older adults, deemed “lifelong learners,” continue their education as a part of the noncredit program through UND’s Office of Extended Learning. To kick off this semester, several OLLI members attended the 2012 Winter Showcase on Tuesday to meet instructors and preview the courses offered. “Universities support OLLI because lifelong learning is a part of institutions of higher learning,” said OEL Director Lynette Krenelka. OLLI is a national program funded by the Bernard Osher Foundation to encourage learning for older adults. OLLI has programs in every state and has 150 chapters nationwide. The Grand Forks chapter began in 2007 through UND as the only chapter in North Dakota. In 2009, a partnership with Bismarck State College began to serve the western side of North Dakota. Membership has grown to 600 people in recent years. “Everyone comes together as a community in a low key learning environment,” Krenelka said. “We also include a social aspect which is just as important.” Classes being offered this semester range from Identity Theft and Consumer Fraud, to Extra(far from) Ordinary Watercolor Painting, to Beer 101. Each semester, different classes are offered

depending on the instructors’ discretion and availability. In these class settings, Krenelka has observed that instructors are often learning just as much from OLLI members. “It’s a winwin,” she said. Once paying for membership, these students can sign up for any OLLI classes at the membership rate and also attend sponsored events such as brown bag lunches or tours. A one-year membership costs $35 and a three-year membership costs $60. Attending the showcase were three lifelong friends who regularly attend OLLI classes and events. Some of their favorites include tours to sites such as the Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Site and studying German and French because of their European heritage. Janelle Menard recently retired from the work force and signed up for the Identity Theft and Consumer Fraud class this semester. “I want to keep my mind busy

playing every week. “It’s fun to be in an educational setting, meet new people and be treated well,” Baird said. The three prefer OLLI classes

“OLLI is here to stay and the only way to go is up,” she said. In 2011, UND’s OLLI chapter was awarded an endowment of $1 million. The money was invested and the interest gained will fund the yearly expenses, perpetually sustaining the program. “An educated person is a happy person,” Hodgson said. “Hopefully we get more members.” Kaitlin Bezdicek is a staff writer for The Dakota Student.

domestic people of color,” Carter said. The center offers internships, scholarships and grants, in addition to giving students a place to expand their learning abilities through tutors and financial aid opportunities. The center also has books and magazines that reflect the history of those cultures that “make the transition of living in North Dakota a little easier, making this state, and University feel as though it is a

little more like home,” according to Carter. “It is one of the places on campus that understands the idea of diversity, but also the idea of social justice,” Carter said, describing MSS. “Diversity is the concept of a ‘potluck of cultural food,’ or samples of each others’ culture. “Social justice is to be able to understand the power we hold because of the identities that we were born into, or that we have acquired.” MSS gives the opportunity to come and “break bread” every Fri-

day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., which Carter describes as the opportunity to “come eat and say hi, engage with people and get the opportunity to know what’s going on in the community.” On Jan. 21, MSS will host the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration, which is an opportunity to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The event will start with a march from the steps of Central High School at 11 a.m. to the Empire Arts Center, where there will be a program followed by a lunch. From Feb. 23 to 24, MSS will hold the Kujenga Retreat at Camp Castaway in Detroit Lakes, Minn. Kujenga is the Swahili word meaning “to build,” and the retreat hopes to do just that. Carter says the retreat will feature a series of workshops that focus on leadership and social justice as well as a simulation. The retreat began at NDSU but is expanding to Minnesota this year. This is the first time UND will be attending, as well as the first time for the University of Minnesota Crookston and Valley City State University. Thirty of the 95 students attending the retreat will be from UND, and the free retreat will let students meet and grow with each other. Kujenga is meant to show students what they need to change the world and how they can achieve it, a goal MSS focuses on year round. Jordan Rodgers is a staff writer for The Dakota Student.

UND sweeps Crusaders KNIGHT UND’s senior standout is named as a front runner for the Hobey Baker Award. Elizabeth Erickson THEDAKOTASTUDENT

The last time the Holy Cross hockey team played in the Ralph Engelstad Arena, it was adorned with praise and applause. This time, the Crusaders were taken down by North Dakota to giving the Green and White its first home sweep of the season to commence the all too familiar second half surge. “Now we’ve got to take care of business one step at a time,” UND coach Dave Hakstol said. “There’s no magic to that. It’s hard work and commitment from our guys and leadership in the locker room.” In 2006, Grand Forks was the site for the NCAA West Regional Tournament in which a Holy Cross vs. Minnesota matchup prompted loyal fans to cheer against UND’s archrival, the Minnesota Golden Gophers. When the Crusaders succeeded in pulling off an overtime upset over Minnesota, it became synonymous for fans to cheer for the team that defeated its rival. But last weekend, the fans’

loyalty belonged to UND. Friday night, Corban Knight’s two goals lifted North Dakota to a 5-1 victory over Holy Cross as the senior forward’s presence in the lineup has been instrumental in continuing the team’s success. After being named the Hockey Commissioners’ Association National Division I Player of the Month for December, Knight has continuously put up impressive numbers. “Obviously he had a good night offensively but he’s played well in all three zones and that’s the key to his whole game is that he’s playing a complete game and he’s reliable all the way through the ice,” Hakstol said. According to Knight, the honor can be attributed to being on the end of great plays and success from his entire team. “[Knight] is a humble person and that’s one of the greatest qualities and that’s what makes him such a great leader and such a presence in our locker room,” Hakstol said. North Dakota came out strong right away Friday after Carter Rowney tipped in a pass from the circle to give the team its first goal of the game. Knight added two more before the end of the first period. “I think that’s what our plan was, coming out after break,” Knight said. “I think it was im-

portant to get as much rest as we could and I think that with the start we had, we’re all pretty happy with it. I think it was good way to set the tone for the game.” Michael Parks and Danny Kristo each scored a second period goal to further boost the gap on the scoreboard. Although the Crusaders momentum began to catch up with UND’s, its two late third period goals weren’t enough to claim a victory. “It continues to be extremely important and our approach all the way through this entire week has been businesslike and trying to put ourselves in a position to play well and win games,” Hakstol said. Saturday night quickly turned into a different hockey game as Holy Cross’ strong start allowed it to show up on the scoreboard first after a quick shot on the net made it past UND goalie Clarke Saunders. It wasn’t until after the Crusaders scored a second goal that North Dakota’s Conner Gaarder managed to get a stick on the puck while skating down the slot to narrow the margin by one goal. After a scoreless second period, an early third period goal by Michael Parks, skating in his first full weekend series since remaining out after an injury in the beginning of the season, savaged

a potential win. At 14:37 of the third period on a power play, Danny Kristo’s snipe through traffic sealed a 3-2 North Dakota victory. “The last one, it comes down to simple things in the game,” Hakstol said. “It was a good snap

After a disappointing start to the season, North Dakota’s basketball team has heated up significantly, winning three of its last six games, bringing the team’s record to 4-9. While the majority of students were heading home following finals, the members of UND’s team stayed on campus to take on Presentation College at the Betty Englestad Sioux Center. The game was the last in a stretch of nonconference games for the Green and White. North Dakota took an early lead and never looked back. The Presentation College Saints could not make any of their shots drop, scoring only 10 points in the first half and shooting 31.1 percent the entire game. UND’s Alonzo Traylor made a major contribution to his team’s win, scoring 17 points and a perfect 100 percent on eight shots. Doug Archer, a UND forward/center, had a 4-4 night. North Dakota shot a season-high 54.7 percent. The crowd at the Betty saw UND

go on a second half 10-2 run, increasing the team’s lead to 26 points. For the first time this season, the entire North Dakota team put points on the board. North Dakota guards Aaron Anderson and Josh Schuler each scored nine points, while Archer and Jamal Webb each put up eight. When the buzzer sounded at the end of the game, the scoreboard showed UND with a commanding 74-32 win over the Division III Saints. Following the win over Presentation College, North Dakota hit the road for a match against conference foe, Southern Utah. With high spirits, UND looked to start up its conference games with a win. Unfortunately, the Green and White faltered late in the game, allowing Southern Utah to ride away to a 79-67 win. Once again, North Dakota fell on the road, as they have all season. After the loss, UND then traveled back to Grand Forks to take on Northern Colorado. After starting conference play with a loss, North Dakota needed a win against the Bears. Led by Aaron Anderson’s 18 points, UND fell short to the Bears 75-66, dropping its conference record to 0-2. Mitch Wilmer was right behind Anderson, scoring 15. North Dakota junior Troy Huff had 14 points off the bench, signaling his return to the court after suffering a jaw injury in the first game of the season against Kansas State.

According to UND coach Brian Jones, North Dakota was disappointed in its game. “I can’t fault our effort,” Jones said. “Our guys are playing hard, but we just aren’t coming up with a big stop when we need it.” North Dakota had 17 more shots than Northern Colorado, but they couldn’t get them to drop through the twine. UND shot 33 percent in that game, though the teams were tied at the half-way mark thanks to a 7-0 run started by Huff. However, a 73.7 shooting percentage by the Bears proved to be the deciding factor. Northern Colorado junior Tate Unruh began a 17-5 run in the final minutes of the game to put the win out of reach for North Dakota. Unruh had 13 points, falling behind Bears leader Derrick Barden, who put up 20 for Northern Colorado. UND stayed in town for the following game, taking on Bowling Green. Naturally, with the odds favoring their opponent, no one expected underdog North Dakota to take a 56-53 win. “We felt like we were going to win tonight and that it would come down to the end,” Jones said. “Our guys made enough plays even when things didn’t go well.”

Freshman carries UND to big win DUFAULT UND’s freshman forward proved her potential this past weekend. ELIZABETH ERICKSON THEDAKOTASTUDENT

With the help of Meghan Dufault’s four goals Friday, the UND women’s hockey team began the second half of its season with a sweep of the Lindenwood Lions. The freshman forward’s presence in the lineup helped the team begin its season on a high note as her skills have proven to be an asset for the team. Within a 90-second span in the first period, Dufault’s goal would be the first of three scored by the team in response to an early goal by Lindenwood. While dominating the second period with 27 shots, compared to the seven fired on the net by the Lions, Dufault scored all three of UND’s second period goals, to send

UND took an 11 point lead in the first half, though the Falcons

the Green and White to the locker room leading 6-1. The lone UND goal of the third period came from Jocelyne Lamoureux on a power play, resulting in a 7-3 victory, despite two additional Lindenwood goals. Saturday night, Lamoureux added four goals throughout the game to her team’s efforts, to get the team back into a quicker start than Friday. After a goal by Lamoureux early in the first period, Jordan Slavin continued the success while scoring back-to-back power play goals. Josefine Jakobsen added another puck in the net for UND to put the team up 4-0 at the end of the first period. The third period turned into a reflection of the second, but it was the Tigers that held the edge. But, despite three goals nearing the end of the game, a final score of 8-4 was enough to give North Dakota the victory. Elizabeth Erickson is the web editor of The Dakota Student.

found a way to come back. With the seconds counting down, Bowling Green closed the deficit to two points until UND junior Jamal Webb increased the lead to six. North Dakota started the second half strong, increasing the lead to nine, but a 9-0 run by the Falcons shattered this defecit. After falling in the score then tying the game several times, Falcon Richaun Holmes gave Bowling Green their first lead of the game, going up 53-51. After knotting the game up, North Dakota took a chance at the win as Lenny Antwi missed a threepointer, Wilmer gained the rebound and Webb took the final shot. The ball sailed from behind the threepoint line and fell through the basket, giving the Green and White a 56-53 win. UND took the momentum to Pocatello, Idaho, where it came away with a 66-53 victory over Idaho State. North Dakota stayed on the road for a trip to Ogden, Utah, where they lost a 95-63 bout with Weber State.
