SECURITY Report finds some instances of reported crimes are decreasing while other increase.



The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report has been released for the general public highlighting the safety of UND as a university. This report released information on the fire safety devices on-campus as well as statistics on amount and types of crime committed.

UPD Chief of Police, Duane Czapiewski, stresses that crime is in every community but is pleased with the released statistics. “I want to see all zeros but that will never happen,” Czapiewski said. “I’m pleased that the numbers [of crime rates] are low,” he added. Some crimes saw a decrease in the number of instances. Aggravated assaults decreased from three to zero instances. Burglaries dropped from 17 instances in 2009 to six in 2010.

Grant secures light upgrade POWER Grant money will allow UND to replace lighting, saving the campus energy and money.



The Dakota Student

Things may be a little brighter on campus after the sun goes down. UND was recently awarded a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which gives the university $1 million to redo some of the lights around campus. This grant will mainly be put into use installing eco-friendly lights around campus. The bulbs used in this project are more efficient than the current bulbs. “Each light bulb will be using about 1.8 megawatts less than the high pressure sodium that are in place,” said Randy Bohlman, an industrial electric systems analyst for UND. The new lights will be placed mainly near the campus parking lots. These parking lots include the parking ramp, by the Memorial Union, and residence hall parking lots, in

addition to the city’s street lights. The new lights will begin being put in during this month. “It is about a three month project so it’s looking like end of January,” Bohlman said . The new lights will be inductive lights According to Bohlman, not only will UND be saving energy, it will also be saving money with the new lighting. “We should save about $13,000 a year,” he said. That is about 40 percent saving a year on lighting up the parking lots around campus. The lights are also easier to dispose than the high-pressure sodium’s that are currently in use. “The mercury on these lights is outside the bulb. So you can just take the mercury off and dispose of the rest,” Bohlman said about the new induction lights. The current bulbs have the mercury inside them. Another advantage of induction lighting is its longevity. The bulbs have a 10-year sustainability. UND is also one of the leader of the eco-friendly

Nightlife receives funding bump PROGRAMS With additional funding, Nightlife hopes to increase its attendance numbers.


JAYE MILLSPAUGH The Dakota Student

After receiving $15,000 in additional funding from Student Government, one UND organization has to figure out what to do next. At the end of the last academic year (2010-2011), the funding given to the Nightlife from Student Senate was cut from $50,000 to $15,000 for this academic year. Nightlife is a program established as an alternative to consuming alcohol on Friday and Saturday nights, During its Sept. 25 meeting, Student Senate voted to add $15,000 in funding to Nightlife’s budget, bringing the total to $30,000. Despite being very excited to receive that extra funding, many of Nightlife’s staff members are not yet sure about what to do with it. Some of the ideas floating around include more spending on food, prizes for games, art and

craft supplies, and promotional items such as free t-shirts and water bottles that would be handed out to guests. Since they are still short $20,000 compared to previous years, they’re being cautious and using the money in a way that will appeal to students. “It’s going to be focused on bigger programs for students rather than smaller,” said Nightlife coordinator Armando Mendoza. Now that they have a larger budget, they can do higher quality programs he said. The extra funding was sought because Nightlife has been getting poor attendance all year, due to lack of funding for quality activities and enough free food, which tends to attract many students to events note organizers. “When you feed students,” said Mendoza, “they’re going to be there for the whole thing.” Nightlife at UND provides free events on Friday and Saturday nights from 9 a.m. until 12 a.m., except on holiday weekends. There are always a variety of events offered, from free movies to arts and crafts, and there’s always food too. Any student orga-

movement among colleges. Many of the other local colleges look towards UND for tips on how to be greener. “We usually get a few calls a week from other schools around the area asking for help with some of their projects.” The Princeton Review even noted UND for being one of the most green schools in the nation. “To have the Princeton Review rank you high is very impressive.” Bohlman stated. He notes that being one of the more environment friendly schools is something that almost

all schools strive for, especially now with the high prices of energy. Another important part about the new lights is that the will make the parking lots a lot safer. The new induction lights are much brighter and bring out more of a natural light according to Bohlman. The natural light will help people be able to see better. “It’s really hard to tell the difference in colors with the sodium lights.” he said, “With the more natural light it makes it a lot better to tell, so things will be a lot safer in parking lots.”

Brilliant advice from P.H. Honey Badger Dear P. H. Honey Badger, I went to a party this weekend and got a little tipsy to say the least. I ended up making out with another girl. I didn’t tell my boyfriend what happened. Should I? Yours, Kissed a girl (and didn’t like it) Dear Kissed, Most would say that honesty in a relationship is the best policy. I feel as though those people should eat cobra and catch a wink of sleep while I talk. Take a step back and evaluate your relationship. Now ponder telling your boyfriend this juicy tidbit and the effect it would have on this relationship. If he’s like most fellows I am acquainted with, the thought of you with another lady would be quite fetching. On the other paw, if you know he would be peeved, don’t say anything. Getting this secret off of your chest may make you feel better, but it will hurt him and your relationship in the long run. If this was a one-time stint, my advice is to chock it up to experience. Don’t worry, your secret is safe with me. Most Affectionately,

DS View It’s nice out

Weather Use the brief North Dakota fall to your advantage. If you haven’t noticed, it’s hot outside. Not just unseasonably warm, mind you, but summertime scorching heat. Grand Forks saw it’s highest October 5 ever, when the mercury climbed up to an even 90 degrees, 30 degrees above average. While this heat wave is forecasted to dissipate this weekend, the temperatures will continue to be phenomenal (albeit more seasonable). This means the trees will change color, and our campus will become a picturesque collage of yellows, oranges, and reds. Find your rakes, and make leaf piles to jump into. Get your roommates together and play some touch football in the quad. Take a nice fall bike ride around campus. We have noticed a distinct lack of activity from you this year, student body. Except for the occasional slackliner balancing across a line between trees, we haven’t seen you all out doing much. Freshmen, in case nobody explained this to you, students can most certainly use the grassy areas on campus for activities. “But I play Farmville on Facebook, that’s outdoorsy enough,” you complain. Sorry, student body, but computer simulations of outdoor activities are not actual outdoor outings. Playing catch with a Nerf ball in your dorm’s commons also does not count. Step away from your desk and the world’s most uncomfortable couches and go play outside (disclaimer: UND doesn’t like it when you play Farmville outside, so pick a different game). We’re not talking laying around, trying to soak up vitamin D and keep your summer tan for another week. You can accomplish the same thing while breaking a sweat. Plus, outdoor games are a good way to meet that special someone. “But I have midterms coming up,” you protest. Sorry, student body, but technology has advanced too far for us to accept that as a valid excuse. You can get wi-fi nearly anywhere on campus, and that includes most of the benches and tables you can find littered across UND. You can also kick it old school and take notes in notebooks, which require nothing more than a set of eyes and the ever-present sunlight that Mother Nature provides you. Get on out there UND, because if we were the gambling type, the Dakota Student Editorial Staff would place bets that the weather at the end of this month will be an entirely different story.

Truth: fact versus fiction in UND classrooms > christen furlong The Dakota Student

This year, more so than years past, I’ve discovered an inner struggle on how to approach what I am learning in my courses. Because of the different requirements in curriculum, and the sudden addition of a minor to my studies, I find myself slightly behind due to transfer credits and limited time. Currently, I have three English courses on my plate along with two in communications. In the past, I would have chosen science, a language, perhaps something in economics or maybe even accounting—but for now, it’s all English and communications—all the time. As I find myself diving into this new schedule with new topics, new professors and new ways of thinking, I find classroom topics supplied by UND professors have caused me to question my approach to learning. My entry level communications course has me in a far larger class size than I was used to at my previous university. The largest class I had ever taken was on the verge of 60 students; my UND class consists of over 150. It’s a leap. But, I have observed, not only in this course, that topics introduced by my professors tend to be very biased in terms of opinion—

usually their own. Coming from an opinions columnist, you might find this slightly ironic—however, I am not trying to sit here and teach you something fundamental; I’m simply pointing out how classroom lectures have been more and more reaching toward personal opinion rather than factual claim. This is not to say all departments experience this. The Communication and English departments are most often based on context and concepts, while others, such as mathematics, physics, and chemistry are more often guided by laws; personal bias just doesn’t always fit into the equation. As I sit in these classrooms, taking exams and contributing to class discussions, I often wonder if I’m truly taking away the right message from lectures. An example of this would be from a recent communications lecture I attended; we spent an entire hour and fifteen minutes debating the meaning of “political correctness” and whether or not society should use it. The next class period, after arguing, questioning and examining the topic, our professor informed us we were all wrong in our definition and that political correctness is a term used to shut down a person who is being respectful of other cultures. Now, if you were to ask me, I

would say that definition is only one answer is correct, while such one observation of “political cor- might not be the case.

This teaches students’ only Small classrooms are usually

better environments for discussion; commonly, in these settings, students are more familiar with one another and, with fewer students, more opportunities are available to voice one’s opinion. However, even with less people to vocally compete against, the professor has just as much opportunity to interject. Discerning fact from fiction can be incredibly challenging. While often noticeable in theology and philosophy courses, personal perception can be hidden within many lectures—English especially. Some professors make it very clear they are advocating one personal view of a topic, while others simply state it as if an alternative is out of the question. But discovery is one of the great aspects of learning. Note taking, memorizing and cramming only goes so far—there are additional steps students must take to find the real message. Authors can place a theme within a text for many reasons, and one of the great opportunities you have as a student is to find out why. Your professor might have his/her own answer, but you as a scholar must have the audacity to put it to the test.

It is easy to get along with your roommate if you have similar interests, and can stand being around each other without wanting to punch the other in the face. I have heard that if you do live with a friend from high school, you will more than likely get sick of one another and end up hating each other. Well, to make sure that does not happen, find some kind of an outlet. Some people smoke, workout or even run to try to get away from their problems. The people who I believe are the true pioneers and decide to take the high road are the people who get a single room. Yeah, you do have to pay more, but you will not have to deal with the drama of a roommate and will only have to worry about your suitemates. You have a room all to yourself and will not have anyone walking in on you unexpected if you are busy, if you know what I mean. I wish you the best of luck if you want to take the chance of living with a stranger. But if you are a freshman, you have to break away from your norm and step out of your comfort zone to meet new people. You cannot settle in to hanging out with the same people all the time.

Along with these numbers, this 30-page report, also explained UND’s procedures on safety and security on campus. The report showed promising fire safety procedures in UND residence halls. A majority of halls had working Fire Alarm Systems, Fire Extinguishers, and Room Detection. The crime ratings were also somewhat favorable. Attributed to an increase in public awareness, one encouraging statistic is the drop in burglary and robbery rates.

Staff Report

The Dakota Student

The Ralph Engelstad Arena had an above average year of attendance in 2010-2011. On Monday, REA officials announced there were 452,182 guests that attended events last year. The Ralph has averaged 442,736 guests per year in it’s first decade of existence, for a grand total of 4,427,360 guests. The strong attendance was anchored by the 235,119 fans who attended Fighting Sioux men’s hockey games. UND ranked second last season in the NCAA in total and per game average attendance, and was also the only Division I men’s hockey program to average over the capacity attendance of their home arena for the entire season. Last year’s figures were third highest in REA history, after 20042005 (when the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship was played there) and 2007-2008 (when the Ralph played host to the World Men’s Curling Championship).

friday october 7, 2011 “People are paying more attention to secure their personal space,” said Czapiewski, “This is where a majority of robberies happen.” Students are more likely to lock their room doors even when they plan to return shortly. As well as being more cautious about their rooms, students have been more apt to keep valuable objects out of site, especially in their vehicles. On the other end of the spectrum, the use of narcotics has risen, increasing from 31 instances to 38. Czapiewski believes this can be attributed to the freshman class as well as the availability of narcotics. Despite this disappointing news, these statistics help UND focus on what problems need to be fixed most immediately. “University Police Department’s field officers are working with community member to better identify narcotics usage,” Czapiewski said. “As a department we can reevaluate how to do things, resolve these issues, and overall continue in format for completion.” There are some discrepancies with the reports, when enforcement is increased, numbers can rise from past

years. This isn’t because the violation didn’t happen in the past but because it is being reported more often due to higher enforcement. To lower the rate of crime in on campus, education is vital. “Education of the general public is key to lower crime,” Czapiewski said, “We also need staffing to implement procedures.” UPD works with the university to inform students on the effects of drugs and alcohol and hopefully there will be a correlation between education of the public and crime rates. This layout of the report was an improvement from years past because all of the data is streamlined for comparison. In the past, individual reports were released. UND students were emailed a link to the report and it can also be found on UND’s website. “By publicizing this information, students are made aware of the importance of safety,” said Czapiewski,

Inside: Benefit for Mark Solberg, review of Andrew Jackson Jihad’s new album

Facing the Pain story by Molly Burke

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” These words can be read on a t-shirt that hangs among many others in the Memorial Union Ballroom. October is domestic violence awareness month, and UND is raising awareness by hosting the 17th annual Clothesline Project this week, October 3 – 7, in the Memorial Union Ballroom. The Clothesline Project is a t-shirt display that is meant to demonstrate the effects of violence in the community. Each shirt represents a person’s story or experience and is decorated by a victim of domestic violence or by a family member or friend of the victim. Each color of shirt signifies a different type of violence. White shirts symbolize those who have died as a result of domestic violence. Yellow shirts represent battered or assaulted women. Pink or orange shirts are for those have been raped or sexually assaulted. Blue or Green shirts represent survivors of incest or childhood sexual abuse. Purple or lavender are for those attacked due to their sexual orientation and red are for those children who have witnessed violence in their homes. In addition to the t-shirts, audible reminders of the level of violence in the United States are also present in the Ballroom. A gong sounds every 10 to 12 seconds to signify that a woman is being battered. A whistle sounds every minute to signify that a woman has reported a rape. A bell is rung every 10 to 12 minutes to indicate that a woman has died as result of intimate, personal violence. NATHAN TWERBERG > The Dakota Student

On Sunday, October 9, the UND Alumni Foundation will be holding a benefit concert in remembrance of Mark Solberg, a former UND student who passed away on May 22 of last spring. Born in Grand Forks on November 24, 1988, Mark was diagnosed with Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy at the age of four. Though his life proved difficult at times, Mark faced those challenges with a courageous attitude and a smile on his face. He developed a great love for music and participated in the Grand Cities Children’s Choir and Keep the Faith musical, as well as many choirs during his high school years. Mark graduated from Grand Forks Central High School with honors in 2007 and then attended the University of North Dakota, majoring in Rehabilitation and Human Services, with a minor in Music. Mark’s passion for music continued on through his college years as he participated in UND’s Concert Choir, Jazz Choir and the Varsity Bards. He was also a member of the Valley Chordsmen of the Greater Grand Forks community. Mark

***** ‘Knife Man’




The Dakota Student

On its fourth album, Knife Man, the Phoenix, Arizona-based duo Andrew Jackson Jihad continues to craft the unique style of acoustic punk music they’ve been producing since their startup in 2004. Knife Man is mostly comprised of two-and-a-half minute punk songs that both deal with social issues and tell intriguingly odd stories. Fans of the band will feel right at home with this album, although newcomers may find it a bit off-putting at first; this music ultimately makes Andrew Jackson Jihad the band that they are today, whether you love them or hate them. The opening track, “Michael Jordan of Drunk Driving,” is a 22-second track that singer-songwriter Sean Bonnette opens and closes with the line “The Michael Jordan of drunk driving played his final game tonight.” It’s a shame that this track isn’t any longer, because it could have been one of the album’s highlights. It’s the perfect example of the bizarre storytelling and odd humor that listeners will find on this album. Bonnette’s lyrics are definitely the highlight of the album. The storytelling style of his lyrics and

Knife Man continues Andrew Jackson Jihad’s strong streak of fast-paced acoustic punk music. So far, Knife Man has the potential to be the best punk album of 2011. There is something very unique about Andrew Jackson Jihad, and fans of The Mountain Goats will find themselves right at home with this album, as will longtime fans of the band.

The writing on the shirts serves a variety of purposes. Some tell of pain, some tell of triumph and some tell of hope. During the project, 778 of those who decorated t-shirts were adult victims and 246 were child victims. One shirt made by an adult read, “You said you loved me so how could you abuse me, your wife and the mother of your children? How? Why?” Some were made by current or past students of UND. One read, “To all the men of Sigma ____; Is ‘brotherhood’ really that special to you? You know he’s a RAPIST, but still call him brother. Is your bond more important than the dignity of another?” This t-shirt also had a picture of a fraternity house with a UND flag on it. Another UND student told her story about a stalker in her residence hall who would tell her about ways he wanted to rape her. She had incriminating messages that she received from him on her phone, yet the police wouldn’t help her. Her shirt said, “I was afraid to go outside my dorm. Why didn’t the police help me?” Yet another said, “You’re so ‘responsible’ that they made you student body President- so take responsibility for what you didYou raped me!” Some shirts expressed permanent damage such as, “The mind does not forget what the body does,” while many advocated hope and change.

The Dakota Student

The importance of summer cannot be understated in the life of a developing hockey player. Building strength and conditioning is a huge part of off-season training, and development on an individual basis is crucial in order to build development on a team basis. The extremely hard work Matt Frattin put in over the summer entering the 2010-2011 season earned him the label “x-factor” from UND head trainer Mark Poolman. Poolman’s label proved

to be prophetic, as Frattin led the nation in goal-scoring last season and now finds himself suiting up as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. This year, coaches are excited about the summer growth of junior forward Danny Kristo. Kristo, from Eden Prairie, Minn., stayed in Grand Forks most of the summer building himself into a stronger skater and into a quicker shooter. And in just over a week’s worth of practices and one exhibition game, it appears that the dividends are starting to pay off in Kristo’s game. “We’re so limited in any contact that we can have with our players until the first official day,” said head coach Dave Hakstol. “But I know this: Dan stayed in town for the majority of this summer and he was on a great consis-

tent training schedule. That’s paid off. That’s been pretty obvious.” Kristo said he gained five or ten pounds and that he tried to build all areas of his game. “I just worked on a lot of little things on the ice. You can always get better at your game, do some skating, stuff like that.” Kristo had a goal in last Saturday’s 8-1 exhibition drubbing of Regina. The goal was a quick wrist shot from the right circle, just the kind of shot that Kristo said he tried to improve on in his personal workouts. Kristo had just 8 goals in 34 games in the 2010-11 campaign. That was even as he was fourth on the team in shot attempts with 117. Appropriately, that was one of the key areas he worked on, including, as he said, “one-timers and shooting, just trying to release

the puck a little bit quicker.” Drawing comparisons to Matt Frattin, of course, is probably unfair to Kristo, who is a much different player and is just trying to create his own success. But, if there was a preseason version of the “Most Improved Player,” it’d go to him. “His game is at a different level than what it was a year ago,” said Hakstol. “And there’s no question in my mind that it’s at a different level than it was ending last year. That’s a very good sign for him. We talk about progressions in a player’s career and that’s a progression and a natural step that has to happen.” With the loss of top scorers such as Frattin, Jason Gregoire and Brett Hextall comes an offense void of true go-to playmakers. Of the 32 game winning goals

last season, 25 were scored by players who graduated or left the team early. It appears that Kristo is finally ready to turn a corner in his college hockey career and be that reliable scorer that the scouting reports touted him to be, beginning with this weekend’s Icebreaker Tournament here in Grand Forks. “Dan Kristo is going to be a guy that’s relied upon heavily by this group,” said Hakstol. “We need to have a reliable person in the locker room and a reliable player on the ice and all signs show to the fact that we have that in Dan now.”

Montana Western to seek win in UND Flood Bowl GRIDIRON The Saturday football game is set to benefit ND victims of natural disasters.


BRANDON BECKER The Dakota Student

The Fighting Sioux football team is coming off a big win over Southern Utah and now will take on Montana Western this Saturday. It was a statement win for the Sioux, who moved up to 20th overall in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision poll. “There are a lot of positives going on in the program right now.

It’s as positive as I can remember it in awhile,” said head coach Chris Mussman. With things going very well right now for the Sioux, they must make sure to avoid having a letdown against the Bulldogs. The addition of running back Mitch Sutton back to the lineup should help with that. Sutton injured his hamstring in the loss to Fresno St. and missed three weeks, but all signs point to him playing this weekend. In his absence Jake Miller has filled in more than admirably—he had 32 carries for 161 yards and two touchdowns against Black Hills State University. Southern Utah. Although Miller has looked terrific the past

three games coach Mussman will give the most reps to whoever is running the best on Saturday. “Allthree (running backs) are going to play, whoever gets the hot hand—who gets going—that’s usually who keeps the bulk of the reps,” he said. UND comes into the game with a 3-2 record, which matches its win total from a season ago, whereas Montana Western enters the game with just a 1-4 record. Despite appearing like it will be a rollover game for the Sioux, they are definitely not treating it that way. “We finished 3-8 last year,” said defensive back Daryl Brown. “We can’t look down on any team.

We just have to go out there and do what we’ve been doing all year,” he added. Those that represented the Sioux at media day spoke with a confidence and it’s clear that this team is starting to develop a swagger. Leading Idaho at halftime, nearly upsetting Fresno St. and then the win over Southern Utah has given the Sioux an obvious morale boost. Against the Bulldogs, Mussman wants the Sioux to come out and set the tempo as opposed to letting the game come to them. “We have to go out there and set the tone right away,” he said. Setting the tempo and getting off to

a good start all go into the common theme this week of avoiding a letdown. After Saturday’s game, UND will have a bye week before it takes on conference foe Cal Poly. As of now, the Sioux sit atop the Great West Conference standings, but the only conference game that has been played was this past week when UND beat Southern Utah. That will change after this weekend when Cal Poly and South Dakota meet to open both of their conference seasons.
