SOME STUDENTS struggle in class because of the amount of time they spend on video games, University of Nebraska at Kearney officials say.

Some become video addicts Simple cure: Getting involved on campus By SAM PESHEK Hub Intern KEARNEY— For many incoming University of Nebraska at Kearney students, the transition into independence will be taken in stride. For some, the transition can be derailed by addiction to video games, television and social media and even affect the overall health of students. “We see a lot of students who may be struggling in class and may not be performing as well as they could because of the amount of time they spend on computers with video gaming and social networking,” said Susan Pedersen, UNK Student Health Services assistant director. “That’s an Tony Earls issue.” Pedersen said students who visit Health Services come in with eye strain, headaches, sleep loss and stress, which are symptoms of overusing television or computer screens. Treatment for poor performance in classrooms and health issues caused by these types of addictions is a quick fix, however, and can be found outside the walls of a dormitory. “We try to guide students into productive behaviors through involvement and campus events,” said Tony Earls, associate dean of Students and Director of Resident Life. With more than 160 student organizations on campus, finding a group of students who share similar interests is not a difficult task and can help dis-

Extraordinary Gentlemen Phi Delta Theta approaches full restoration at UNK By SAM PESHEK Hub Intern KEARNEY — Joel Cedar understands the value of name recognition. Cedar, vice president of Phi Delta Theta at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, said the word “gentlemen” will become synonymous with the fraternity’s letters. After an almost nine-year absence on the UNK campus, Cedar and 24 fellow members of the Phi Delta Theta colony are approaching the full restoration of the Nebraska Beta charter, and the thought motivates them. “What really attracted me to Phi Delta Theta was knowing that we would be the ones bringing this from the ground up,” Cedar, a junior radio broadcasting and marketing major, said. “We would be setting our own standards and establishing our own traditions because they haven’t existed.” With 25 active members, the Nebraska Beta colony is 25 members short of becoming a full chapter for Phi Delta Theta


at UNK by national fraternity requirements. This summer, Ben Loschen, a Phi Delta Theta recruitment chairman and junior philosophy and exercise science major, was assigned to recruit members. “It’s a privilege to go out and handpick guys for us to make entry at UNK, help foster something brand new and re-create Phi Delta Theta and what it stands for,” Loschen said.

After beginning in January with 10 members, 15 more members were recruited and a colonization ceremony was conducted to formally recognize the group as it works toward full membership. Loschen credits much of the success of the organization to people who were a part of the fraternity since its founding at UNK in 1966 and up to its departure from campus in 2004. “Alumni support has been incredible for them to want us to come back on campus and be strong,” Loschen said. “Just from Nebraska Beta there are over 900 alumni, and they’ve done everything from coming to our recruitment events to sharing monetary support.” Loschen said alumni have contributed $3,500 to a scholarship fund. The colony has worked closely with consultants from Phi Delta Theta national headquarters in Oxford, Ohio, and with members from the Nebraska Alpha Chapter at the University of Nebraska-Lin-

coln to ensure the fraternity progresses. “It’s really awesome to be recognized and welcomed with open arms by our national fraternity and by other Greeks here on campus,” Loschen said. “We have so many people that are rooting for us.” Cedar and Loschen said after full membership is achieved, the next task is to find a house on campus. For Cedar, signing the 25 members required to have a national charter once again and moving into a pod remain long-term goals. Quality before quantity of members remains the priority. “We want, when somebody hears the name Phi Delta Theta from UNK or anywhere, they think of a quality guy that cares for people other than himself as an all-around gentleman,” Cedar said. “We want to continue our tradition of producing leaders and have a positive impact not only at UNK, but the whole Kearney area.” email to:

Gold Torch Society lights the way Organization matches alumni with undergrads to teach real-world skills By LORI POTTER Hub Staff Writer KEARNEY — Twenty-five University of Nebraska at Kearney alumni reach back to campus each year to give 25 female undergrads lessons about the working world beyond the classrooms. The professional women are volunteers in The Gold Torch Society, a mentoring and networking organization established by the UNK Alumni Association. “It’s a lighting-the-way type of thing, plus gold is one of our main colors,” Michelle Widger, assistant director of the alumni association, said about The Gold Torch Society name. She works with a board of directors to oversee student selection, match mentors and plan an annual meeting at UNK each October. Widger said the organization grew from master’s degree research done by Stephanie Vogel, a former assistant director, who was studying the importance of mentoring for success in business. Vogel made the first alumni-undergrad matches. The Gold Torch Society was formerly established in 2001. Mentors, who serve threeyear terms, often are selected through board member suggestions. Others ask to participate, and some are recruited based on the students’ career interests. Widger said some mentors come from other states to participate, and some are local residents. “We have a variety of women from all backgrounds,” she said. The 2011-2012 mentors included teachers, a dentist, a certified public accountant, a physician, media specialists, human resources professionals, a realtor, social workers, executives at nonprofit organizations and the chief U.S. probation officer for the District of Nebraska. Widger said past mentors have included the chief financial officer at St. Elizabeth’s Regional Medical Center in Lincoln and an Alaska Supreme Court justice. “We always need teachers,” she said. It’s not a perfect system because a variety of students are selected each year and come to the program with a variety of interests that may or may not be precisely represented by the mentors. About 40 undergrads typically apply. Most of the 25 accepted are upperclassmen, Widger said, because they tend to be more serious about their careers. However, freshmen and sophomores have been accepted. Students apply in January. Widger sends notices to deans of all of the UNK colleges and everyone else on campus who is involved with students. She talks to sororities and puts notices in the student newspaper, The Antelope.


UNK GOLD TORCH Society students and alumni mentors meet at the Alumni House in October 2011 for an annual weekend gathering and program.

A completed application includes the form, a resume and a paragraph about what the applicant hopes to do with her college education. Each student also must identify someone who already has been a mentor to her and define the relationship. The board selects the students. At the end of the spring semester, Widger meets with the new group at a “get-to-know-you event.” She collects their summer contact information and gives them a list of the current mentors from which each girl selects her top three choices. Last spring, she also had the students list their dream jobs. Widger said students’ interests and mentor requests change over the years. “It ebbs and flows. It seems one year, I’ll have a lot of pre-med students. Then the next year, prelaw or a year with interior design.” Currently, there’s a greater interest in social service and social work careers, she added. The mentors are from different age groups and at different places in their careers. “Inevitably, it happens that not everybody is a perfect match,” Widger said. “But they’ll learn something.” For example, one mentor last year talked about having lost her job during the recession. Others have told stories about overcoming other difficulties, including being told by adults that they’d never

Michelle Widger said the organization grew from master’s degree research done by Stephanie Vogel, a former assistant director, who was studying the importance of mentoring for success in business. Vogel made the first alumni-undergrad matches.

amount to anything or that there was something they couldn’t do. Widger said the alumni mentors are given the option to call their student first. Some local mentors meet their students face to face and invite them to their businesses. Other matches communicate long distance via Facebook or other Internet connection. She said it’s up to each pair to define their mentoring relationship. She sends reminders about the importance of making regular contacts and may suggest opportunities to meet or talking points. “The big group gathering is the meeting in October,” Widger said, attended by all the mentors and students. The program involves panel discussions developed by the alumni mentors. Last year’s topics were “Marketing Tools to Position Yourself on the Job Market,” “Personality and the Perfect Job,” and “Interact for Action,” which included speed mentoring. “Sessions that work best are those that have a lot of interaction and feedback,” Widger said. The topic for the October 2012 program is holistic health issues. “The first year I did this (20052006) definitely was an eye-opener,” she said. “They (students) said they wanted to hear real stories.” That included both the positive parts of a career, as well as the personal and professional challenges. Some mentors have talked about rising to certain levels in their careers and deciding to downsize because of family responsibilities or just deciding to do other things. “It’s good to see options, where a job can take you,”

Widger said past mentors have included the chief financial officer at St. Elizabeth’s Regional Medical Center in Lincoln and an Alaska Supreme Court justice.

“We’re just a closeknit group of friends. We don’t just hang out and practice together, but we hang out off the field, too.”

Over time it evolved into an official sport with universal rules and competitive teams, eventually becoming a staple of British and many other cultures. Even the football played by the Nebraska Huskers can trace its origins to rugby. Although Reimers loves to play the game, he says that the absolute best thing about being a member of the UNK Rugby Club is the feeling of team spirit shared by all its members. “We’re just a close-knit group of friends. We don’t just hang out and practice together, but we hang out off the field, too. I love it. You get so many friends, you meet so many new people, so it’s really nice to know that if you need something, they’re there and they’ll help you out,” he said. “Anybody can play,” he said. “Even if you don’t know how to play, we can teach you. It’s a lot of fun.”

BLAINE DROZD feels incredible gratification from helping others. “Drozd is truly a selfless individual, dedicated to helping others and being a team player,” says Scotty Seeba, a hall director at UNK.

“Of course it makes you feel good, but just realizing that there’s a bigger picture than you out there — it’s so hard to describe. It’s a deep feeling that life is about a community of people and working together with those people. That’s what drives me.”

Drozd said he learned to be a role model from his parents, his mentors and the people he’s seen lead by example. “Obviously, I give thanks to my parents for what they have taught me,” he said. “I also think the environments I’ve been placed in, and the communities, have meant a lot.” He said his activity in Scouting organizations played a major role in his attitude toward community service. He said his involvement in his fraternity, Phi Gamma Delta, has given him a great outlet during his college career to continue practicing the principles he learned as a Scout. Scotty Seeba, a hall director at UNK, said, “I have seen a great deal of youth involved in the community, but Drozd

eclipses all that I have seen. “Drozd is truly a selfless individual, dedicated to helping others and being a team player.” Drozd has been involved in such events as blood drives and Cub Scout Olympics. He also leads campus events and was instrumental in setting up Veterans Day events. “Drozd never asks for anything in return for his service,” Seeba said. “He serves as an excellent role model to all those around him. His countless acts of kindness should not go unnoticed, nor should his service to the community and his campus as a whole.” Drozd won the 2012 Freedom Award in the Service Organizations category for his work on campus and in the community.

What’s the best way to stay involved on campus? “For international students, they’re not understanding of campus life here because of the culture shock. They need to go out a little bit, and they’ll be capable of staying involved on campus.”

“When students first arrive they have the greatest opportunity to stay involved because we have almost 200 organizations and local groups. It’s incredibly easy to stay involved on campus.”

Jim Ma of China, junior in graphic design

Jordan Gonzalez of Morrill, senior in political science

“The best way to stay involved is just to get out of your dorm room and try some intramural sports. You’ll get to meet a lot of people that way.”

“I would recommend everybody to try Rush Week and Blue and Gold Week. Going to those right away will help you get involved and stay involved.”

of stuff along with being creative,” Swenseth said. After being involved with AMA for two years, Swenseth has taken over as president and is determined to bring more members into the group. “We have a lot of potential. We are trying to grow,” she said. “We are really trying to recruit and do more on campus, which having more members will allow us to do.” In order to raise awareness for the group, AMA will have a booth at Blue and Gold Wel-

come Week. It also will provide a survey for students to set a monthly meeting time. The group gets active in the community by helping its local philanthropy, the Nebraska AIDS Project, with the AIDS Walk. Last year, AMA members helped raise $7,000 and participated in the walk. The group also spreads the word about the organization through AMA week. Members set up a table in the atrium of West Center and hand out flyers and hot chocolate.

As AMA gears up for another year, Swenseth is determined to share the organization with other students so it will continue for years to come. “We really want people to start to recognize AMA and just to be one of the familiar names on campus and to get membership up so that we can not only sustain ourselves but can get more freshmen involved,” she said. email to:

SIFE teaches outside classroom Members travel the country gaining knowledge they can use at home By SAM PESHEK

“Any sort of organization you’re involved with, you’re going to hit some bumps in the road you will have to learn how to deal with. I’ve always been a leader, but SIFE taught me to be a successful one.”

Hub Intern KEARNEY — When Zach Shultz sought real-world application of his courses as a business administration major, he found more than 500 hours worth last year alone. Shultz, a senior from Grand Island, is entering his second year as the president of the University of Nebraska at Kearney chapter of Students In Free Enterprise. Shultz said the hundreds of hours he committed to the organization’s national competitions and local projects have taught him more about business than he could find between the pages of a textbook. “SIFE has impacted my life in a variety of ways,” Shultz said via email. “I have learned a tremendous amount of information and skills that are not taught in the classroom such as teamwork, communication and networking. Additionally, I have made some amazing friendships with my fellow SIFE members.” SIFE is an international organization that teaches university students the finer points of entrepreneurship through volunteering. According to the SIFE website, the organization operates in 39 countries with an estimated 57,000 active students. Once a year, SIFE members from across the country travel to compete and attend career fairs to gain even more knowl-

UNK sophomore offers wisdom for freshmen Munch gives 5 rules to live by By SARA GIBONEY Hub Staff Writer KEARNEY — During his freshman year at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, Tony Munch followed five rules that made for a successful first year of college. “These five rules are what I lived by last year, and now I am a vice president at Pi Kappa Alpha — one of the biggest fraternities on camAnthony Munch pus — as a sophomore, and I am helping to lead the incoming freshmen at Welcome Week,” he said. Here are Munch’s five tips for finding success as a freshman:

1. Join an organization. This is the easiest and fastest way to meet people and also to find something that you are interested in. No one wants to sit in a dorm room all day watching TV or playing video games. Getting involved on campus is a part of the college experience, and it’s an opportunity that shouldn’t be passed up.

are using your time wisely, and not just letting it waste away. Your freshman year will go quicker than you think.

3. Play intramural sports. Another great way to meet people, but also just something fun to do with friends. It’s inexpensive, and it helps out the college campus. They keep you involved, and they also keep you active, which leads to my next tip.

4. Eat right, and stay active. The freshman 15 isn’t a myth. Get up and go running. Take advantage of the free facilities the college has to offer: workout rooms, basketball courts, racquetball, whatever it may be. Eat right, don’t get the hot dogs and pizza every day. Settle for a salad or pasta. Drink water instead of pop every day. Take care of your body or you can get sick, and being sick in college is not fun.

5. Don’t be afraid to walk up to someone new and introduce yourself.

Every incoming freshman is in the same boat. You may know a few people, but that’s all. The only way you will 2. Manage your time. meet people is if you are This might be the best tip I social.

So he’s writing this letter to them, just giving them some words of wisdom, encouragement and instruction. So, it fits very well for this age group because they’re progressing in their faith, too.” Other student-centric Christian organizations include the Christian Student Fellowship and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
