We’d love to have you!



all is a nostalgic time of year, and that’s why I love it so much. This season always brings me back to the autumn days when I was running cross country, watching football games on crisp Friday nights, running/tripping through corn mazes (corn can be tricky to navigate), eating freshly baked doughnuts, and sipping homemade cider while wearing thin gloves that didn’t effectively keep out any cold.

ELIZA FOSTER Managing Editor

No worries, I plan on accomplishing quite a few items on my standard list, especially the falling over corn stalks item (because really, what’s October without having corn husk scars on your knees?). As October is suddenly upon us, isn’t it strange to think that we have already been back a month? I think author Carol Bishop Hipps sums it up well: “Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.” Soon the leaves will be turning into vivid colors and a scarf and a hat will be a must to watch a football game.

A Book In Review “Lady Q: The Rise and Fall Of a Latin Queen by Reymundo Sanchez” By Sarah Puzan


his book has been in the back of my mind for about two years. I have always wanted to read it, yet I have always chosen something else. However, this month I finally got around to reading it and I am so glad that I did. The memoir follows the life of Lady Q, a young girl growing up on the streets of Chicago. Lady Q has one of the saddest and hardest lives that I have ever heard of right from birth. Despite very good intentions, she just can’t seem to catch a break in life and ends up getting caught in the life of drugs and violence. As she works her way up the gang ladder, readers get to see a different side of the typical gang. They get to hear a voice from within. As I followed Lady Q on her heart-breaking journey, witnessing as she fought between what she knows and what she has to do, I started to sympathize with her, which is something I never thought that I would find myself doing with a member of a violent gang. My heart really goes out to Lady Q. I even found myself shedding a few tears at the end. I challenge you as you read this book to cast aside your stereotypes of gang members and read it with an open mind. The book really challenges the question of whether bad people are born evil or are merely a product of their environment.

A Paranormal MSU’s Paranormal Club is more than just ghost hunting By Lacee Shepard


f you’re looking for a club to get involved in, you’re at the right university. Michigan State is home to more than 550 registered student organizations. Crazy, right? A club that is especially unique is the Paranormal Club. The MSU Paranormal Club was founded in December 2009. Members of the club are responsible for capturing frightening and inexplicable things on camera to share with the world as both proof and possibility that there might be something out there beyond human existence.

One of the investigations was held at Mary Mayo Hall, after age-old myths that Mary Mayo herself haunted the hall. English junior Andrew Koch, a second-year member of the club, was at this investigation. His job was to place a camera in the crawl space of Mary Mayo Hall, hoping to capture something out of the ordinary on film. While there was no documented paranormal

activity found, Koch said the process was still “creepy.” Things that have been caught on tape in other investigations include doors mysteriously closing, footsteps and voices coming from an empty house, taps, thuds and other various noises. Although investigations are 8 October 2011

exciting and no doubt the major appeal of the group, they are not the main focus of the club this fall. President Dane Dario, a senior majoring in social relations and policy, religious studies, and psychology, said they would like to build their core membership during the first semester. There were more than 20 students at the first meeting this year, and Dario said he would


During their first year on campus, the group was busy forming the club framework and did not participate in many activities or investigations. They began doing actual paranormal investigations during the 2010-2011 school year. In that year, the club went on eight different adventures, trying to witness paranormal activity around MSU and the Lansing area.


Activity OR TWO “Ghost hunting is kind of like fishing, you don’t really know if you’re going to catch anything or not, and most of the time you’re just waiting.” - Ron Thorne

like to see that number grow. Another goal is to focus on training and ensuring that each member acts professionally. Dario takes the level of professionalism very seriously and holds the meetings in a full suit. He said that he wants to be as professional as possible when the group goes on investigations and does not want his team

running for the door when they find something. Dario would also like to see the club members be trained in technological equipment. The group works with a series of electronics, from video cameras to audio equipment, and each member must be able to handle and run the equipment properly.

Think you might be interested? The Paranormal Club at MSU welcomes all who are looking to explore paranormal happenings. They meet every Wednesday from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Lake Huron room in the Union.

Cheerleader: By Kaitlynn Knopp


n On any given game day, Spartan Stadium is home to 75,000 screaming fans and 300 band members, all responsible for making it the 20th loudest college football stadium, according to the “Bleacher Report.” But among all of those people are 16 others, whose sole responsibility is to pump up the crowd and keep the energy alive.

These people are none other than MSU’s nationally ranked cheerleading team, who sets foot on the field every game day, ready to enthusiastically lead Spartan fans and their team to victory. Hospitality business senior Storm Garfield said cheering at Spartan Stadium is unbelievable. “I can’t really put it into words,” Garfield said. “It’s so exciting being able to lead the

10 October 2011

student section and know that someone is always looking right at you. I’m so lucky to be able to experience it game after game.” Zoology sophomore Kalee Vannest agreed, and said the experience is “extremely exciting and adrenaline pumping.” GO GREEN! GO WHITE! The cheerleading team makes more than 200 appearances a year and can be seen at many events outside of football. The program is divided into two co-ed squads--the green squad and the white squad--and each squad cheers for different sports. The green squad cheers for men’s football and basketball, while the white squad cheers for women’s volleyball and basketball. In addition, the team attends various special events and functions, such as parades, personal football tailgates, Midnight Madness, weddings, alumni receptions, and more. “Unlike other teams, we’re more directly involved with the fans,” Garfield said. “We interact with them on a daily basis, whether it’s during a game, at a university function, or just on the street. Someone is always watching us so we must represent the university as best we can and set a good example at all times.” MAKE IT OR BREAK IT Beginning in February of each year, a few open workouts are held where high school girls can come and work on their skills with the current team. In March, new prospective cheerleaders send in a short video showcasing their skills. From there, head coach Elyse Packard


(n.) An athlete who can jump, kick, toss, catch, stunt, tumble, and FLY makes video cuts and invites the best back for a formal tryout in April. Garfield said that everyone, including vets, participates in a three day formal tryout, which is judged by members of the Universal Cheerleading Association. To be considered for the formal tryout, participants must perform a standing tuck on hardwood floor. In addition, potential squad members are required to show experience in partner stunting, pyramids, and basket tosses, Daniela Schroeck, premed sophomore said. Lastly, they have to “represent MSU in a positive way and have a lot of spirit,” Schroeck added. However, the process for boys is different. “We basically just convince random, large, athletic guys that we see or meet around campus to come to an open workout,” Garfield said. “We’ll teach them a few basic stunts and they usually get hooked. For their tryout, they must do the fight song, a band chant, a cheer, any tumbling they may have, and a few basic stunts.” EAT. SLEEP. CHEER. REPEAT. Once a cheerleader makes the team, the time commitment begins. The team practices three times a week for about three hours. “We go over game day stuff such as band chants and cheers,” Vannest said. “We also do stunts, pyramids, and tumbling.” Between practice, sporting events, and the other functions they attend, Schroeck said she has something cheer related almost

every day of the week, which makes it hard to balance everything else going on, like school and work.

Fox News a federal judge ruled in July 2010 that college cheerleading does not qualify as an official sport under Title IX.

“Not only are those things time consuming, but we also have to maintain a certain body image and athleticism which requires time in the gym and conditioning,” Schroeck said.

“An activity can be considered a sport under Title IX if it meets specific criteria,” the article said. “It must have coaches, practices, competitions during a defined season and a governing organization. The activity also must have competition as its primary goal -- not merely the support of other athletic teams.”

For Garfield and the rest of the team, the time commitment is very demanding, but it is a disadvantage outweighed by all of the positive things that come with being a part of the MSU cheerleading team. “The most rewarding part of being on the cheer team is probably the people you meet,” Schroeck said. “On our team, I have my closest group of friends. We are like a family.” In addition, Garfield said the team gets the best seats in the house at games. The university gives them free football tickets and Nike gear. They get to travel to away football games and the Big Ten and NCAA basketball tournaments. They have access to the training rooms and Jenison weight room. They’re on national television during games, and they have the opportunity to travel to Disney World to compete at Nationals against other cheerleading teams from around the country, Garfield said. THE AGE OLD DEBATE Since the official birth of cheerleading in 1898, the question of whether or not it is a sport has existed. According to an online article released by

11 October 2011

But that ruling hasn’t stopped people, cheerleaders and non-cheerleaders alike, from believing that it is in fact a sport. “I could go on forever about why it is a sport,” Garfield said. “I don’t think a lot of people realize how much physical skill is involved in collegiate-level cheerleading. Most people just picture us jumping around on the sidelines yelling ‘go State go,’ but the stunts, pyramids, basket tosses, and even the tumbling we do is extremely difficult and often times extremely dangerous. We must be in top physical condition in order to perform at the level that is required. We lift weights, run, and practice just like any other team. And believe me, being thrown 25 feet in the air while flipping and twisting at the same time isn’t exactly easy.” So, while some people may never believe cheerleading is a sport, others have taken a more practical approach, believing it isn’t a sport—yet. WWhether or not you think cheerleading is a sport, be sure to check out the MSU cheer team at the next home football game!

stuff of legends.


The Spartans and Wolverines go way back


he rivalry between the Michigan State University Spartans and the University of Michigan Wolverines is one of the ages; two Big Ten universities housed within the same state-located a mere hour from one another-each with fans whose intensity and passion can span generations. On one day each year, the two teams collide in a match of not only football, but of pride and legacy. The rivalry between the Spartans and the Wolverines runs deep-but where did it begin? Michigan State University (known then as Michigan Agricultural College) gained varsity status in 1896, with their first U of M matchup in 1898. Unfortunately for the Spartans, the Wolverines took an easy win, 39 – 0.

Every season since, the two teams have spent four quarters battling on the fields of either Spartan Stadium or The Big House, in hopes of walking away with both a victory and bragging rights for the next year. In addition to an enormous sense of pride, the winners of the game are also awarded the Paul Bunyan Trophy. The award-consisting of a four-foot wooden statue on a five-foot base-is named after the fabled lumberjack as a homage to the state of Michigan’s history as a major lumber-producing state. The trophy, first awarded in 1953 (Michigan State’s first year as a member of the Big Ten), is presented to the winning team of each year’s matchup following the game and remains in that team’s possession until the game the following year. While U of M has the most overall wins between the two teams-34 total compared to MSU’s 12 October 2011

22-the Spartans have walked away as victors for the past three years. “We are always looked at as the underdog, but time and time again we prove ourselves,” MSU accounting student Leith Zeidan said. “We know what our football team is capable of and what our school is able to accomplish.” With the 2010 season finishing as a huge success under the coaching of Mark Dantonio, after competing in the Capital One Bowl and finishing the season 11-2, Spartan fans have high hopes for the 2011 season to be equally as successful. The Spartans are hosting the big game against U of M at Spartan Stadium on Oct. 15 and the level of excitement and school spirit for Spartans is at an all time high. “Our players play their best game of the year because of what is at stake on

1953 was the first year the Paul Bunyan Trophy was awarded to the victor of the rivalry game.

This legendary rivalry existed all the way back to when MSU was known as MAC and the days of leather helmets. Above, the first touchdown of the MAC victory in 1913.

and off the field,” MSU mechanical engineering student Michael Lask said about the upcoming game. On game day, Spartan Stadium is expected to be a sea of green and white with some hardcore maize and blue fans thrown in, not to mention Spartan players dressed in their new Nike Pro Combat uniforms on the field. The energy, excitement, and anxiety of the annual matchup between U of M and MSU is unlike any other game of the season, and for many season ticket holders, having the game at Spartan Stadium makes the tickets even more valuable. Students reported tickets for last year’s game in Ann Arbor selling for more than $150 per ticket. “I’ve never been to a Michigan – Michigan State game, so I’m looking forward to the atmosphere of being in the student section. I’m expecting the whole stadium to be packed,” Lee

Aufderheide, MSU hospitality business student, said. But it’s not just Spartan fans who are looking forward to the game. The game will be nationally broadcast, and those who cannot attend the game in person look forward to tailgating outside of Spartan Stadium or watching it on TV with friends, including those from the opposing school. “I enjoy the rivalry between the Big Ten schools, especially between U of M and MSU,” U of M student Rima Fadlallah said. “It keeps the spirit alive and gives everyone a reason to deck out in their school’s apparel.” Starting now, the countdown to kickoff begins. When the Wolverines invade East Lansing on Oct. 15, it will surely be the showdown of the season. Like all Spartan fans, ing Magazine is pulling for another win for MSU-after all, when you mix blue and yellow, you get green. 13 October 2011

MSU Shadows MSU, we love thy shadows When twilight silence falls, Flushing deep and softly paling O’er ivy covered halls; Beneath the pines we’ll gather To give our faith so true, Sing our love for Alma Mater And thy praises, MSU. When from these scenes we wander And twilight shadows fade, Our mem’ry still will linger Where light and shadows played; In the evening oft we’ll gather And pledge our faith anew, Sing our love for Alma Mater And thy praises, MSU. (Alma Mater, written in 1927)

Uncle John’s Cider Mill Have some fall fun: Uncle John’s has something for everyone ranges from grape wines, fruit wines, dessert wines and three flavors of hard cider.


ant a good way to spend a Saturday afternoon with friends when there isn’t a home football game? Head to Uncle John’s Cider Mill.

Dan Clark, Lansing resident and MSU graduate student, said one reason he likes to come to the cider mill is for the wine tastings. “This is my second time coming here,” Clark said, “I like to go to the pumpkin patch, do the wine tastings, and get doughnuts and cider.” If you don’t have a horizontal license in your wallet just yet, there are plenty of other events to attend, such as band performances and impersonators. Steve Hunt, Elvis Presley impersonator, has been in the business for over a decade. Hunt has performed at the cider mill for the last four years and also does various shows throughout the state and the Midwest area. Sandy Sheaffer, Hunt’s cousin, said Hunt’s love for music started at a young age when he started listening to rock ‘n’ roll bands such as The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Elvis Presley. “As for impersonating Elvis, it all started as a gag because of my love for Elvis karaoke,” Hunt said. Hunt saw that he was pretty good at what he did, so

REPORTING he and friend Judy decided to invest in his future with impersonating. He said it was a meeting of the minds, and they decided it was a good way to have some fun while making a couple bucks too. Hunt said he always has fun no matter where he’s performing. The all-around crowd-pleasing Elvis song is “Suspicious Minds,” he added. “I always try to sing other songs by other artists, but no matter how hard I try, it always ends up coming out sounding like Elvis,” Hunt said. Hunt’s father, Paul Wayne Hunt, also mentioned that scarves and teddy bears are passed out to audience members during his shows. Interested in having Hunt perform at your next special occasion?
