Bronco M.I.L.E.: Young Men on the Rise

August 29, 2012

Broncos Get Bucks to Build

The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) awarded a five-year $643,000 grant to Fayetteville State University. This award was provided in efforts to promote innovation and competitiveness amongst U.S. citizens in the global economy. The US Department of Commerce houses the EDA, whom makes such investments toward economically distressed communities. Fayetteville State University is housed amongst one the most economically distressed areas in Fayetteville. “One of Fayetteville State University’s strategic initiatives is economic transformation for this region”, said Dr. Daryush Ila, Associate Vice Chancellor for Research. “This grant will provide needed assistance with establishing a center that will create businesses and employment in our state.” A University Center will be built with the funds and will strive to propel business expansions through the linking of existing firms. Awarded monies will fund education, resources and technical assistance to introduce new and effective strategies to create an environment of higher paying jobs in the defense, energy and agriculture industries. Dr. Pamela Jackson, Assistant Professor and Assistant Dean/Director of the Pre-Business program and Greg McElveen, Assistant to the Dean of the School of Business and Economics, in collaboration with Emily Dickens, Director of Government and Community Affairs, were highly conducive in securing the grant for FSU.

A new program is on the rise at FSU and is grasping the attention of male students around campus. The Bronco M.I.L.E. or Male Initiative on Leadership and Excellence program is led by Dr. D. Jason DeSousa who is the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Retention at FSU and seeks to promote graduation and excellence rates among young male Broncos. “The MILE is one institutional response to better address the rates at which men of color persist to graduation" DeSousa said. "Students in the MILE commit to academic and personal excellence individually and collectively. Our mantra reflects such an ideology, which is "We Grow Together, We Lead Together, We Graduate Together." Thus, if one single member of the MILE graduates, others are obligated to do the same. Christopher Darden is the first graduate of the MILE. He graduated May 2012 and because of his accomplishment, he now compels other young men to graduate too,” DeSousa said. The M.I.L.E. is simply one initiative to improve the academic and personal success

of young men. Dr. Thomas Conway, Chief of Staff and Vice Chancellor, refers to it as a "feeder”. In this sense, the MILE helps to better prepare young men to enter the world of work, graduate and professional schools, as well as other endeavors that prepare them to be citizens of the world, with exemplary values, character, and principled leadership. Many people neglect to realize that with a college education, one earns more money over the course of their career than individuals without college degrees. Additionally, college educated individuals tend to engage in healthier lifestyles, more social justice causes, and deeper critical/liberal thinking. Young men with college degrees are more likely to contribute to local, state, and federal tax brackets because they are more employable than young men who do not attend college. Dr. DeSousa went on to state that “It is well documented in the social science literature that pre-college summer programs have a more profound academic and social impact on African American and Hispanic men, than any other racial and gender groups.

When college and university enrollments are down, which they are nationally, and will continue to decrease over the next five to 10 years, student retention or the "propelling" of students becomes more critical for robust enrollment. Given the rates at which young men matriculate through FSU, more innovative approaches were needed to decrease their attrition from the university. As such, Chancellor Anderson and his cabinet approved the specially targeted summer experience, which we now refer to as "Boosting Bronco Brothers" or B3. The three-day pre-college transition experience gave 66 young men a boost or more firm platform for their academic and personal success.” “While I may have served as the "farmer" by planting "B3 seeds," the initiative was successful because the B3 students and the peer mentors flourished, "pleased with the strong sense of educational purpose and community that was developed through the three intensive days” Chancellor Anderson said.

My Summer Trip to China By Jermaine Coble

This past summer, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime, to not simply study Mandarin Chinese, but to actually go to China and learn the language. A former recruiter for Altria suggested that I take the opportunity to get out of the country, as I had two Fortune 500 companies on my resume, and pursuing any chance to travel to China would be beneficial to my career and personal development. The office of International Education in Hackley Honors hall was instrumental in helping to make the trip to China possible. The search for a school that offered a program that matched my schedule was difficult at first, but eventually we were successful in finding a program and school that could accommodate. A lack of scholarship availability meant that I would have to foot the bill, which included tuition, plane fair, a visa, a passport and transportation while in Shanghai. Once I arrived in China, I found that my classmates included Mongolian, French, and Korean students, and we

were to be taught by two Chinese instructors. Many people say that to learn another language, it is best to immerse yourself in the culture. As I was surrounded by those who only spoke the Mandarin Language, I was forced to ask questions in their native tongue, as well as to use context clues to figure out what was being said. During my down time away from the classroom and studying, I was able to visit the Zhujiajiao (pinyin: Zhūjiājiǎo, jew-gee-ah-gee-ow) Urban watering tower as well as the city of Wuxi (pinyin: Wúxī, woo-shi). Proof that Fayetteville State is far reaching and produces great graduates, I able to link up with alumni, Ivory Osbourne and Brittany Harrison, who are both pursing their Master’s in International Business. Both were helpful in getting me acclimated to the culture, as they have had more time in China. Some of the cultural differences noted while there was the political correctness we attempt to embody here in America does not apply to Chinese culture, they simply

state things in a blunt manner and with little regard to how it may sound. Also, a big shock was seeing children using the bathroom in the streets; they actually had slits in their pants for this sole purpose. Of course every American wants to know if the food is like our American Chinese food; not at all. In China the food is fresh and served family style, which encourages sharing and interacting with others. Having rarely seen African American people, people outside the city were very eager to take pictures of me, which often caught me off guard. Easily one of the most important lessons I learned while on this amazing adventure was that people are not all that different, it is simply a language barrier. We all want the same things for ourselves and those we care about, although achieving and representing those emotions are different. I recall my Mongolian friend who I gave the nickname “Slim” who did not speak as me but could be found with headphones in, listening to the same music.

The Summer Box Office Hits ted

By Cimmeon Q. Terry

The Dark Knight Rises The most anticipated film of the summer didn’t fail to deliver. Arguably, “The Dark Knight Rises,” is the best movie of the year. The hard part is finding someone that would disagree. As of August 14, the movie grossed $394.6 million. The performances of Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy gave a most promising depiction in the finale of this Batman series. Bale brings this Batman series to a phenomenal close. Just as the “Lord of the Rings” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, seeing the past Batman films of this series would ties loose ends. The story starts eight years from the aftermath of the events of “The Dark Knight”. The city is still recovering while Bane (Hardy) is planning the worst for Gotham City, all the while when Batman is nowhere to be seen. The young and attractive con artist, Cat Woman (Hathaway), posing as a waitress at Bruce Wayne’s dinner party, is caught

by Bruce himself trying to steal his late mother’s pearl necklace. One would think that the man who’s secret identity is Batman would be more clever to apprehend Cat Woman, but his leg is nearly broken just as his spirit, and she escapes. As Bane’s evil plot unfolds, Bruce decides to get himself back in the superhero swing of things even though Alfred (Michael Cain) advises against it. On his journey to save Gotham, Batman finds ultimate truths about himself, his allies, and who his true enemy is after all. Captivating from beginning to end it will leave many questions and the desire to see more. A solid 10 out of 10 is what I rate this film, as it was nothing less than an excellent conclusion to an epic series. Condolences to the victims of the Aurora, Colorado shooting that took place on July 20, 2012. Unfortunately, there are bad guys in real life.

The phrase “The World is Yours” from lyrical rapper, Nasir “Nas” Jones, in his classic project Illmatic, may have been a catchy chorus to some but Fayetteville State's Student Government Association has put a Bronco twist on this saying in order to reunite FSU students in a more studious lifestyle. “The World is Y.O.U.R.S.”, Your Objective in Unite in Raising the Standard, is the motto for Student Government Association this year, which promotes excellence and strategic goals for the student body. Jermaine Coble, SGA President is acting on his campaign promises by pushing Better Communication, Voter Registration, Revamping Bronco Pride and Community Service. SGA has worked alongside Student Activities Council, Pan Hellenic Council, AUTOS Commuter Association, the Community Service departments to promote unified organizations and activities for the student body. SGA has met twice this summer for leadership retreats to


plan events for the school year, learn better leadership skills and to establish an understanding of the importance of serving students through true Bronco Pride. “Bronco Pride” has formally been redefined as practicing Ethical Behavior, Being Socially and Culturally Aware, encouraging Academic Success and maintaining an Optimistic and Professional Attitude. SGA Week is set for September 17th through September 22nd, which will feature the annual Clubs and Organization Fair, along with a Dance Your Mass Off competition, which promotes student physical education through fun dance moves. SGA’s mission is to serve as the voice of the students, promote academic excellence and to encourage positive involvement for the enhancement of student life. The first meeting will be August 22, 2012 at 5 p.m. in the Rudolph Jones Student Center room 236. All students, staff and faculty are welcome to attend; any suggestions, questions

A new "Voice" for fall

Revamped office and Website By Dr. Andrea Baker, Adviser

A newly renovated Voice is back this fall and ready to unleash a host of changes in the way Fayetteville State University students receive their campus news. After Labor Day, The Voice will be unveiling its new website www.fsuthevoice. com. The site will include up-to-date FSU campus news as well as links and information to other colleges around the nation. In addition, the new website will be interactive and include video and surveys, as well as a mobile application, for stat news hounds who just can’t get enough of The Voice. Thanks to the support of Dr. Janice Haynie, vice chancellor for the Division of Student Affairs, The Voice received major renovations to its office in room 241 of the Rudolph Jones Student Center this summer. The Voice went from a room of mix and matched computers and furniture to a state-of-the-art newsroom, equipped with six new Mac computers, a new Nikon camera and three digital recorders. The physical space of The Voice was transformed from what could have been mistaken for a storage closet into a professional office for student journalists. Furniture was purchased from Office Furniture Now on Sycamore Dairy Road. “We really want The Voice to succeed,” said Dr. Haynie, on several occasions. Dr. Jon Young, provost and vice chancellor for the Division of Academic Affairs was also instrumental in getting the renovation project off to a good start. So, here’s to a new year and a new Voice. The Voice is for students and by students so all contributions are welcome. Faculty and staff are also welcome to submit articles.
