First annual Mr. Multicultural pageant celebrates diversity of K-State students
ALANUD ALANAZI THE COLLEGIAN
The Delta Chi sorority sponsored its first annual Mr. Multicultural pageant Saturday in Forum Hall to both showcase Kansas State’s diversity and promote individuality. From Cuba to Taiwan, contestants represented a variety of home countries. “When you meet [the guys], they’re very energetic and outgoing,” said Evelyn Lucio, pageant coordinator and senior in American ethnic studies. “They wanted to display their culture and talk about their organization and have everyone see the diversity of men at K-State.” In the past three years, K-State has seen a large increase in its Latino student population. Lucio said she is very proud of the community she has been able to build at K-State, and she wanted the student body to observe and appreciate the different nationalities within the campus. A common goal between the contestants was to raise awareness regarding cultural diversity and celebrate their heritage. When asked what they would accomplish upon receiving the title of Mr. Multicultural, many contes-
tants agreed they would promote K-State’s diverse student body. “My platform is for the people, as they were with me throughout the pageant,” Daniel Garcia, freshman in business administration, said. Garcia was later awarded the title of Mr. Talent for his artistic number. He created a painting of the late actress Marilyn Monroe using only glitter and glue. “We wanted to do something that was going to be able to bring people from all different types of culture and give them a platform for them to show their similarities and differences,” said Ingrid Silva, senior in feed science management and Delta Chi president. An introductory video showcased the men and their home countries’ flags, offering the audience a connection to the contestants and the countries being represented. The dance number at the beginning of the pageant featured choreography that blended different cultural dances to showcase the contestants’ unity and harmony. Silva said this helped achieve the pageant’s goal of inclusivity. The pageant also show-
cased the heritage of each contestant in unexpected ways. During the talent portion, Leonardo Garrido, junior in electrical engineering, shared how practicing sly magic tricks influenced his upbringing in Cuba. Garrido was awarded the title of fan favorite at the end of the show. The crowd cheered as Juan Hernandez, junior in mechanical engineering, took home the title of Mr. Multicultural at the end of the pageant. Hernandez also won $1,000 in scholarship money. Hernadez said he hopes he can use his platform to raise awareness regarding mental illness. The issue is “close to home” for him, and he said he would like to reach out and help those who are struggling with anxiety and depression. Alanud Alanazi COLLEGIAN MEDIA GROUP

Tennis team falls to Rice University 6-1 by Julia Jorns The Kansas State tennis team traveled to Houston to compete against Rice University on Sunday, but the Wildcats were unable to pull off a victory this weekend. The Wildcats’ record is now 3-2 in their spring season after losing to Rice 6-1 at the George Brown Tennis Center. The doubles competition started off the day, and K-State was swept by Rice in two matches. In No. 1 doubles, the K-State duo of sophomores Margot Decker and Anna Turco fell 6-4 to Rice’s Michaela Haet and Linda Huang. In No. 2 doubles, Rice’s Anastasia Smirnova and Priya Niezgoda defeated Wildcat freshman Karine-Marion Job and junior Ines Mesquita 7-5. In singles competition, K-State was only able to end the day with just one win in seven matches. This part of the day started with No. 4 singles, where Rice’s Anna Bowtell defeated K-State freshman Maria Ponomareva 6-0, 6-2. No. 3 singles were won by Rice’s Victoria Smirnova over Turco 6-2, 6-0. Next, Niezgoda took the No. 6 singles victory over K-State freshman Ioana Gheorghita 6-1, 6-3. Rice’s Haet then beat Decker 6-4, 6-3 in No. 1 singles.

Black Student Union celebrates Black History Month with multiple public events
Monty Nielsen: The legacy of K-State’s retiring registrar PETER LOGANBILL THE COLLEGIAN
Mary Kate Zach | COLLEGIAN MEDIA GROUP

ANGELA SAWYER THE COLLEGIAN
Black History Month is an important time for many Americans, and for the Black Student Union, it’s an opportunity to promote its mission statement throughout the entire month of February. The BSU celebrates Black History Month at Kansas State in a variety of ways, including events and keynote speakers. Brandon Clark, BSU adviser and student programs coordinator for diversity and multicultural student affairs, said Black History Month is important for many reasons. “I think Black History Month is always an import-
ant month for our Black Student Union here on campus because, traditionally, it has been our BSU that has been responsible for hosting the majority of the events that happen on campus,” Clark said. “So it really gives our BSU the opportunity to highlight different issues and celebrations they think are important.” Every year, the organization brings in a keynote speaker as the headliner for the public events on campus. This year, it was Angela Rye, an influential political commentator, lawyer and advocate. Jasmine Gray, junior in management, said she has been an involved member of the BSU since her freshman
year, and she appreciates the organization’s dedication to celebrating Black History Month every year. “I think it’s great,” Gray said. “At K-State, there isn’t a lot of black people on campus, so I think it’s great a place to go to and come together to celebrate.” The organization will sponsor events throughout February, including Black History 101 Mobile Museum and Lecture on Feb. 22 and Black Trivia Game Show on Feb. 26. The BSU holds regular meetings on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the Student Union. This year, the organization’s themes are “Don’t be mad because I’m young and black,” and “Defeating Odds, Pushing Efforts,” or “DOPE”
for short. Del’Sha Roberts, BSU president and senior in biology, said the themes tie into Black History Month and what they are doing to celebrate. “We have a lot in store for Black History Month: taking a look at our past and seeing where we are progressing to in the future,” Roberts said. “[We’re] thinking about what our campus needs and what our students’ needs are.” Clark said he believes Black History Month is a month to learn and reflect on the past and the current issues in the black community. “Black history is American history,” Clark said. “It’s important for not only black Americans, but all Americans to know.”
In the late 1970s, Pat Bosco, vice president for student life, was a graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Bosco would commute there for half a week, every week, and then commute back to Manhattan where he was working for the vice president of student affairs at Kansas State University. During his time in Nebraska, Bosco met Monty Nielsen, who would later become the registrar for K-State. Nielsen was also pursuing a Ph.D. and had overlapping classes with Bosco. Also like Bosco, he had a job outside of school, serving as the registrar for the University of Nebraska at Kearney. “He was a very conscientious student,” Bosco said. “We were both balancing jobs. We understood that receiving that degree was very critical to our careers. We were very focused.” Once they finished school and received their doctorates, Nielsen and Bosco went on separate paths. Bosco stayed at K-State, and Nielsen went on to be the registrar at three other universities before coming to K-State in 2003. “I didn’t plan to be a registrar,” Nielsen said. “When I was a little boy, I wanted to be a major league baseball player. I didn’t even know what a registrar was until after I got to college, or even after I started working at a university. Once I got some experience in it and went through some baptisms by fire and got some grounding in it ... the beauty of it is — someone in the ‘70s said this — that you’re really a part of the nerve center of the campus. You
serve all the students.” After working across the country, Nielsen landed a job as university registrar at K-State 16 years ago in February 2003. It is the longest he has ever served as the registrar at one university. Nielsen said he thought Manhattan was the right place for him because he liked rural areas, it was closer to family, he had a close connection to Bosco and the administration was open to his suggestions. “I felt like it was probably an opportunity to come back into, geographically, home,” Nielsen said. Nielsen came to K-State at a time when internet access was rapidly growing and gaining influence worldwide. Many initiatives he started and encouraged were to help bring the university into the 21st century. “There were also some things after I’d interviewed at K-State that I saw and really liked,” Nielsen said. “One was the fact that they were just getting ready to launch a new student system implementation. They were going with a product, Oracle. Oracle and PeopleSoft hadn’t yet merged. What was attractive to me about that was the fact that I was coming in on the ground floor, as the system implementation hadn’t yet started.” Bosco said the registrar is a type of vital job that is not often noticed, and Nielsen provided enormous leadership in many areas. “He has the kind of job that would be equivalent to the hiker on the K-State football team,” Bosco said.

Multicultural Student Center project continues moving forward JULIE FREIJAT
The Multicultural Student Center has been making progress toward becoming a reality on campus due to efforts from students that are part of the Multicultural Center Action Team. Kansas State University president Richard Myers presented the Multicultural Center Action Team with $1.5 million toward funding the center, donated by the Morris family. This brought the total funding to $4.2 million, with $5.5 million as the goal. Adrian Rodriguez, associate vice president of diversity and multicultural student affairs, said the team has been very active in making strides toward the build-
ing’s development. “In November, we had the opportunity to take several students to make our case for approval to the Kansas Board of Regents,” Rodriguez said. “We were able to do that, present it to them in November, and in December they approved the multicultural center as a building project moving forward. We’re pretty ecstatic about that.” The Multicultural Center Action Team is comprised of over 20 members. Rodriguez said he was grateful to have students be a part of the team and mentioned Jordan Kiel, student body president and senior in industrial engineering, Monica Romero, Hispanic American Leadership Organization president and sophomore in nutritional sciences, and
Del’Sha Roberts, Black Student Union president and senior in biology, as a few students who were helpful in their endeavors to make the center a reality. “They were really important in answering questions from the Kansas Board of Regents members about what the space meant to them and why such a space is so critically important to the future of Kansas State University,” Rodriguez said. The team is working with architecture company Hollis + Miller and construction company McCown Gordon to design the building around certain needs for the center. Rodriguez said throughout the fall semester, they had several workshops in which the team worked with Hollis + Miller to create early de-

sign concepts. “Now, McCown Gordon is working with Hollis + Miller to work through some of those designs,” Rodriguez said. “We’re bringing the group together here in the next two weeks for our first meeting of the semester in which Hollis + Miller will present some of their drawings and renderings based on the work of the team in the fall.” Rodriguez said Hollis + Miller will present some of these drawings to the team as well as discuss the site and logistics of the building. The name for the center will incorporate the name of the Morris family in honor of the donor who provided the lead gift of $1.5 million for the project. Rodriguez said there may be some additions to the name as well. “As far as the naming process goes, that will be a part of the first meeting,” Rodriguez said. “We’ll talk about how we’re going to go about with the official nam-
ing and how we will roll that out to get community input on the name. There’ll be some options there, but obviously we want to honor our major contributor for the center as part of the gift. That will be incorporated, but we’ll talk through some options and present some opportunity for our community to provide some feedback.” The Multicultural Student Center will be immediately adjacent to the K-State Student Union. Rodriguez said there will be a great deal of “curb appeal” in this area and the building will run the contour of Mid-Campus Drive while also being pedestrian-friendly. He said the groups involved in the construction of the building are doing all they can to maximize the footprint with creative design. “I think this is going to be a building quite different than what you see on campus, with it being right up on the street and having absolute exposure,” Rodriguez said. “We [want] this building to
be iconic here at Kansas State University for its architecture, but also what it symbolizes in having great identity and purpose for our great university.” Rodriguez said construction is slated to begin in midsummer, but the timeline depends on how funding and other factors pan out through the spring semester. He said the team is looking at a 14-month construction schedule, all things considered. Rodriguez said he thinks the center is important for all students at K-State. “It allows us to grow and learn about what we value most at K-State, and that’s each other — every person that’s a part of the K-State family,” Rodriguez said. “It’s also a place where we can come together to grow and learn. We want to offer cultural competency development to all students ... and we believe that this is an incredible venue that will be available to all students to be able to do exactly that.”

Nielsen was essential in bringing electronic transcripts to K-State, meaning students no longer had to sit and wait in line by the transcript window as in decades past. “The care and keeping of the transcript is probably the most important thing we do,” Nielsen said. “It’s from day one of your enrollment at Kansas State University, and even if you only go through just a very short time here at K-State and then withdraw and never come back, or you go all the way through, whatever you do, there’s always going to be a transcript kept on you.” When Nielsen came to K-State, his associate registrar at the time was working to bring the PeopleSoft information system to the university, and thus implement what would become known as ISIS, and later KSIS. “We all would interact quite a bit,” said Michael Crow, associate director of administrative services. “[My assistant] and I were over quite a bit for meetings, and then I would have a one-on-one with Monty regularly. He’d talk about strategy in the office and strategy on the project.” Another project Nielsen pursued was the electronic university catalog, which for a long time was posted online twice a year, but could not be edited. If the president of the university had changed, for instance, it could have been over a year before the information was able to be made accurate. “It was totally static,” Nielsen said. “If my name was misspelled, or if the president’s name was misspelled, or the president [had changed], and we’re not publishing a new

Nielsen will be joining his wife in retirement in July. catalog until another year and a half later, [it] still had John Wefald as the president.” After Bosco gave him the assignment to update the software, Nielsen found a way to get it done. He was a regular attendee of the annual convention for the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, or AACRAO, which always had a large section devoted to vendors. “When I had been given that charge by Pat, I went to AACRAO and saw an organization called Acalog Digital Architecture,” Nielsen said. “I invited them in, they did a demo, everybody liked it. At the same time that we were implementing PeopleSoft, we went ahead and did an implementation of the electronic catalog.” Crow said Nielsen has always been focused on the student perspective throughout
the years. “Monty is a real humble, self-effacing person that works real hard to make sure there’s collaboration and it’s very customer-oriented, and the registrar’s office reflects that,” Crow said. Nielsen will retire at the end of the academic year in July. Although he said he has thoroughly enjoyed his career, he feels ready to pass the torch. “[My wife] is already retired, and she’s got that freedom,” Nielsen said. “We need to spend these golden years doing things together. I will be 70 in May and had always said that I wouldn’t want to keep working beyond 70. You ask what’s important, and it is important at this time to be with her, to be retired together on a full-time basis, to take care of our health. I think it’s an opportunity, while still healthy, to be able to go out and have some good days.”

Tips to keep your spring break trip on time and under budget RACHEL HOGAN THE COLLEGIAN
There are countless things to consider when planning a spring break trip: costs, transportation, location and so on. While you can't account for everything, here are a few tips to make your life a little easier while you prepare for the trip of a lifetime.
1. BUDGET, BUDGET, BUDGET
Working out your budget should always be the first step in planning a trip. The amount you are able to spend will greatly impact where you go and what you do, and vacations can become very expensive very quickly. Anticipate this by creating and sticking to a budget, making sure to consider gas and/ or air fare, Uber costs, meals, souvenirs and emergency purchases. If you need to go over in one category, skimp on another. While you're on the trip, chances are you're going to have to make adjustments on the fly, so it's best to be sure to plan ahead for unexpected expenses.
2. MAKE RESERVATIONS EARLY The closer it gets to spring break, the more travelers will be staking claim to rooms and bungalows, narrowing the options for you. That means prices may skyrocket, especially if you plan on traveling to a spring break hotspot like South Padre Island or anywhere else in the Gulf Coast. It's just simple supply and demand â€” when a lot of people are trying to purchase the same thing at the same time, prices will rise. Make it easier on yourself and get it done early.
3. DOWNLOAD TRAVEL APPS
Mobile apps were made to make your life easier, and there are tons of apps you can use to ease your travel
Both Manhattan Locations Archive Photo by George Walker | COLLEGIAN MEDIA GROUP
Even though spring break may still be a while away, students should consider saving money now for a week of relaxation later. headaches. If you're going on a road trip, download GasBuddy so you can find the cheapest gas as you go. It also allows you to filter nearby gas stations by brand, amenities and services. In-app reviews help you ensure you never find yourself at a sketchy truck stop. The Skyscanner app is another helpful tool for planning your vacation, as it helps you find cheap flights, rent cars, explore deals on hotels and find travel inspiration. Google Trips will help you keep all your reservation information in one place. Beyond that, it suggests day plans, activities and restaurants. If internet access is spotty where you're going, this app has offline access to information and maps. However, if you can't survive without internet, you'll want to download the WiFi Map app to help you find a connection anywhere you go. Don't forget about the apps you may already have, like Uber, Lyft and Venmo, which can all come in handy on any trip.
4. PACK AND PREP
Some vacations require special purchases. If you're going to the coast, for instance, you might want to purchase a new swimming suit. There are also apps that can help you stay organized while you pack. PackPoint is easy to use and creates a suggested packing list based on factors like the length of your stay, destination and weather forecasts. Hopefully these suggestions will help make planning a spring break trip a little easier if you do your research and stay safe.

OPINION: Everyone who interrupts a college lecture owes me money LEAH ZIMMERLI THE COLLEGIAN
We’ve all been there. The professor is on a roll, the lecture is going by quickly, when someone shouts some tangentially related garbage from a sparsely populated corner of the room. Odds are, you can hear their voice in your head, and you’re groaning internally. This has happened to me multiple times in at least two of my classes this semester, and frankly, I’ve had it. These people have been wasting my time, and now I want compensation. Now, this isn’t bashing people with genuine questions. Ask-
ing questions is a critical part of the learning process, and I would never make fun of someone who is genuinely trying to understand something better. But these aren’t the people I’m talking to. The people I’m talking to are the people who feel the need to flex in front of their class, ask questions that are off topic, challenge the professor for no reason, make a joke that really didn’t need to be made and engage in other forms of attention-seeking clownery. I said I want compensation, so let’s break it down. According to Kansas State University’s estimate of tuition and costs, a credit hour costs $312.15 for in-state
students, which I am. So, a three credit hour course costs $936.45, and that’s not even counting the extra course fees. Now, let’s say my three credit hour class meets for 50 minutes, three times a week, and there are 15 weeks in a semester. Barring any cancellations and holidays, the class should meet 45 times, for a total of 2,250 minutes in a semester. Following that logic, I’m paying about $0.42 for every minute I sit in class, plus fees on top of that. For context, I make about $0.14 every minute I’m clocked into my job, so I’m already operating at a loss. When someone interrupts the lecture and decides to argue,
which usually happens multiple times, it’s hard not to feel like they’re literally burning the money I’m paying to sit in that class. As a person whose card was declined trying to buy a bag of chips, I really feel those cents when someone decides to run their mouth. Look at me — I’m angry enough to do math, which I usually try desperately to avoid. If you’re reading this and thinking, “Oh no, I interrupt lectures all the time,” don’t worry. I accept apologies through Venmo, PayPal and plain old cash. Leah Zimmerli is a community editor for the Collegian and a sophomore in mass communications and political science.
