Tuition break down Faculty describe how Iowa State appropriates students’ fees By Danielle.Ferguson @iowastatedaily.com Students know that attending a university comes with a pretty hefty price. However, where that money actually goes is not always known. Both tuition and mandatory fees must be approved by the Board of Regents. David Biedenbach, assistant vice president of the Board of Regents, said the proposal is submitted early enough, usually in the fall, so that if the state budget changes for some reason, the university would have time to change its proposal if necessary. The state appropriation request that was discussed, but not voted on, at the September meeting for the Board of Regents, could possibly freeze tuition for a second year. Once voted on by the board, the university can begin to look at how the tuition money will be distributed to colleges. Mandatory fees are calculated into students’ U-bills.

ROTC honors veterans with workout

Mentor program helps international students adapt in United States By Kat.Gruenewald @iowastatedaily.com

After flying thousands of miles away from home, leaving family, friends and everything they have ever known behind, international students arrive in Ames knowing close to no one. While adjusting to a new culture, a new environment and maybe a new school system it is sometimes easier for international students to stick with people who share the same background. To encourage friendships between international students and Americans the International Student and Scholars Office offers a mentoring program where American juniors and seniors serve as mentors to new international students. “Mentees are new international students that have just arrived in Ames,” said Paul Chung senior in management and international mentoring program coordinator. “[The mentors are supposed] to help them adapt to a new environment.” In this semesterlong program, mentors help their mentees with cultural differences and how to solve problems with their new American friends. They do activities

together such as bowling, laser tag or dancing. “We just invite them out to do things they might not know about otherwise. Just mix and mingle,” said Webster Kpor, senior in industrial technology and occupational safety and mentor in the program.”We have to meet four times a semester, but of course you can meet more often. Just go with the flow.” Anyone can become a mentor. The only requirements are being sufficient in knowledge about Iowa State and fluent english skills. Chung said many mentors have interest in the global society and have made experiences abroad trough traveling or studying abroad. David Harper, senior in kinesiology and mentor in the program, said he agrees. “I love to meet international students. I went to Malaysia last summer, which was fun,” Harper said. “I got a feeling for what it is like to be in a different country for an extended period of time without knowing the language really well.” Many international students who choose to sign up for this program are actually graduate and postgraduate students who come to the United States to advance their

An ISU professor has helped PBS in developing an educational video game that puts the gamer in the shoes of a member of the Cheyenne tribe. Christina Hill, associate professor of anthropology, has worked with PBS for the last year and a half developing a video game about the Northern Cheyenne tribe. The game is called “Mission U.S.: A Cheyenne Odyssey” and chronicles the life of a young Cheyenne boy in the 1860s. It follows him from young adolescence to adulthood. The game is third in a series of video games that PBS is producing to teach

middle school to high school students about American history. Hill said she approved of the way the video game presents history. “They take these slices of American history that are really important, that involved the big picture of the United States and global issues,” Hill said. “Then, they follow one person and look at how all of these huge forces in history affect that one person. It’s a really cool idea.” The other two video games that have been produced follow a boy in Boston during the American Revolution and an black girl in the South

Tips to avoid parking tickets Blake Lanser/Iowa State Daily

Sara Sprecher, parking and transportation field service officer, writes tickets in the prepay lot next to the Armory. Sprecher, along with other ticket writers for ISU Parking Division, patrol all lots on campus to insure the safety of students, staff.

By Makayla.Tendall @iowastatedaily.com As winter blows in across campus and more students choose to drive to class, Mark Miller, program director for Parking Division, said there are ways to avoid the piles of parking tickets that some students accumulate. Miller said that for the students who feel like the Parking Division follows their car around campus, CyRide should be the No. 1 alternative to driving. This alternative makes the most sense for students since it is a service they already pay for, and it can often get them to campus faster than it would take to drive around and find an empty parking spot, Miller said. However, many students do not find alternatives that fit their needs said Alejandro Valdes, junior in performing arts, who said he knew of at least one person who was upset that they got a parking ticket on campus. “He works at Conversations, and he can’t take the bus early in the morning because it’s not there at 6 o’clock. He drove there, parked in the parking lot behind Maple-WillowLarch, and he got a parking ticket,” Valdes said. “He got upset because there’s no way he could go around it. He had to go to work and take the bus su-

per early, and that’s kind of counter-productive.” Valdes also said he knew students who parked in a loading zone and another who parked in front of a bus stop during a period when the bus would not stop at that spot for a few hours. Neither got a ticket. Miller said the Parking Division wrote 64,615 parking tickets last fiscal year, which is typical but could be prevented. There are 740 meter parking spaces on campus at which students can park. Miller also said that despite the fact there are more than 7 million cars on campus during the year, there are still many vacant parking spots in the commuter lots north of campus where students can pay for a parking pass, but Valdes said many students do not feel like paying the $150 for a parking pass. “Some people don’t want to have to pay $150, they just want to pay for $15 instead,” Valdes said. “I feel like paying for parking is almost not worth it. People might as well pay the ticket instead of paying for a parking pass.” He feels that paying for parking is just another added expense. “If you always have a ticket you feel like you’re being targeted. There’s just so many people going to school here, there’s

Parking fines ■■ $10: Expired parking meter or prepaid lot ■■ $15: incorrectly parking in a general staff lot ■■ $25: parking in a reserved lot ■■ $30: illegally parking ■■ $150: counterfeit or stolen parking passes

so many people driving that it’s hard for people to find parking spots,” Valdes said. “Not only do you have to pay for tuition and your books and everything but you have to pay for parking. Some people just want to take a short cut and just don’t pay for parking.” On the other hand, Miller said there are many students who get one or two parking tickets and become more compliant, which is the goal behind issuing tickets. There are also “heavy offenders” like one student who racked up $3,500 worth of tickets a few years ago. The Parking Division is a self-supporting entity and does not receive any tuition dollars or state allocations. This means that all money from citations goes toward upkeep like snow removal, line-painting and crack-filling of the parking lots that ISU members use daily. Any money left over in the annual budget goes toward projects like repaving a

parking lot or building a new facility. Miller said a few years ago, the Parking Division began taking pictures of the cars for which they issued citations because 99 percent of tickets were being appealed. “Ninety-nine percent of people come and say, ‘I’ve never had my car on campus. I wasn’t parked there,’” Miller said. “We started showing them the pictures. 99 out of 100 people were lying to us.” Another common argument between the Parking Division and students was that students would often say that they were incorrectly parked only for a few minutes, Miller said. “Show me how we can tell you were only in there for five minutes,” Miller said. “If there’s nobody around the car we don’t know if they were in there for five minutes or 50 minutes.” Miller said the point of writing parking tickets was to make drivers compliant with parking rules to ensure convenience and safety for everyone. “We don’t like to write the tickets, but we have to enforce the rules. It would be tougher to get parking on campus if it were just a free-for-all,” Miller said. “We’ve got a job to do like everybody else. It’s a privilege to park on campus; it’s not a right.”

Xbox One connects with gamers through many systems, including the ongoing partnership with EA Sports, to bring gamers a more powerful experience than they have ever seen before.

New consoles offer updated game play options PlayStation 4 improves upon predecessors’ graphic quality By Brian.Achenbach @iowastatedaily.com Praised as a console for both gamers and developers by its creator Sony, the PlayStation 4 has been improved in every way from its predecessors for the graphical quality of its games. Games like Guerrilla Games’s first person shooter “Killzone Shadow Fall,” and SCE Japan Studio’s adventure game “Knack” are Sony’s exclusive launch titles that cannot be found on any other platform. Sucker Punch Production’s PS4 exclusive “Infamous: Second Son” is an open world adventure game that puts players in the shoes of a man named Delsin Rowe

who has gained superpowers including one to absorb other powers. “Infamous: Second Son” is slated to be released in 2014. When it comes to content, Sony has deals with “Assassin’s Creed” developer Ubisoft and “Halo” developer Bungie for exclusive content on their consoles. PlayStation players will get exclusive downloadable content for “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag” and when Bungie’s new game “Destiny” releases, PlayStation gamers will get downloadable content before it releases on other platforms. What consumers will be getting when they purchase a basic PS4 is the console, an HDMI cable, a power cable, a wired headset, a charging cable for the controller that it comes with it and a 14-day free trial of PlayStation Plus. The PS4 can record and stream game play,

and can share it to social media sites. The PS4 will require a subscription fee to their respective online services, but you do not need one to use the Game DVR to record game play on the PS4. The PS4 has a 500 GB hard drive and can play Blu-ray discs as well. One thing the PS4 will not be able to do is share recorded video content to YouTube. PS4 owners who have PSN IDs still will not be able to change their names. The PS4 has an eight core AMD “Jaguar” processor compared to PlayStation 3’s custom cell processor. The PS4 will launch on Nov. 15 for $400 with launch games such as “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag,” “Battlefield 4,” “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” “FIFA 14,” “Killzone: Shadow Fall,” “Knack” and “Warframe.” PS4 will be coming out on Nov. 15 in the U.S.

Highly touted Xbox One set to debut on Nov. 22 By Levi.Castle @iowastatedaily.com As a successor to the Xbox 360, the Xbox One has a mighty reputation to maintain. After a reveal that had many fans up in arms about the One’s attempted Digital Rights Management control, Microsoft reversed the features many were complaining about. The Xbox One has an eight-core x86 processor, which Microsoft showed off at the reveal event, that can easily switch between multiple tasks at once, even allowing a player to Skype and game at the same time on the same screen. The One also sports 8GB of memory, or RAM. Xbox One will ship with a 500GB nonremovable hard drive. To compensate, external hard drive support has been confirmed by Microsoft. The One will use a Blu-ray drive to play disc-based games, as well as Blu-ray movies, of course. At the reveal event earlier this year, Microsoft talked immensely about the TV capabilities of the console. On stage, it was demonstrated how seamlessly the One could switch between live TV and games, and back again. Xbox announced multiple partnerships with the likes of EA Sports

Women’s retreat prepares to help shape female leaders of the future by providing unique opportunities By Max.Dible @iowastatedaily.com Christmas break typically serves as a break from the rigors of higher education, but Iowa State is giving its female students an opportunity to use a vacation day to hone their leadership skills at the Women’s Leadership Retreat. The fourth annual Women’s Leadership Retreat will be on campus Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Hach Hall. Jennifer McDermott, graduate assistant in the school of education, is helping to organize the retreat on behalf of the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center in conjunction with the Student Activity Center and the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics. The purpose of the retreat, among other things, is to construct communities. “We want to build community among the participants of the retreat as well as strengthen their connection not only to Iowa State, but also to Ames and Iowa communities,” McDermott said. Kristine Keil, program coordinator for the Catt Center, described what the retreat hopes to bestow upon its attendees. “We want to give the participants leadership tools, prepare them for the workforce, and help them become leaders on campus which will help them later on,” Keil said. “Everyone can figure out their own strengths and take that knowledge back to their school and their work.” McDermott echoed that sentiment, acknowledging that outside of the retreat’s general goals, it is meant to serve as an enlightening individual experience for every student involved. “I think the goal looks different for every person that participates,” McDermott said. “Everyone comes into the retreat looking for something different, but our goals as planners are to provide an excellent experience to build connections to role models and mentors, and to help female students grow in what it means to be women and leaders on campus.” Activities will vary throughout the day, but they will be headlined by a keynote speech.

and the NFL to bring exclusive content to those who hook up their cable box to the Xbox One. Because of this capability, one that the PS4 does not have, an HDMI-In port is included on the back of the console in addition to the typical HDMI-Out. Xbox One exclusives include: “Forza Motorsport 5” and “Dead Rising 3” (existing franchises), while entirely new titles like “Ryse: Son of Rome” and “Titanfall” aim introduce new names to Xbox’s exclusivity. While Sony and Microsoft both talked about the benefits of cloud gaming, Xbox’s conferences enjoyed talking about how they have significantly improved their servers for the next generation of their LIVE service. Xbox’s website expresses that there are now more than 300,000 servers just for Xbox LIVE. They also discussed how the Cloud will help the console power its games, cutting down on system stress and potentially improving performance. Finally, the Kinect sensor is included with every Xbox One sold and is said to be much more powerful than its predecessor. The new Kinect has a 1080p camera, fullbody motion tracking and improved voice control and recognition. Xbox One launches Nov. 22 for $500. Launch games include “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag,” “Battlefield 4,” “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” “Crimson Dragon,” “Dead Rising 3,” “Killer Instinct,” “Madden NFL 25” and “NBA Live 14,” among others.

“This year we will be doing a variety of things. Our keynote will be given by Valerie Hennings, who has her Ph.D. in communication, and the topic will be women in leadership in the U.S. in 2013,” McDermott said. There will also be breakout sessions focusing on topics such as negotiating, conflict management and supervision, all of which are applicable to new leaders as well as established leaders looking to grow, McDermott said. “We will have a panel comprised of three different community members: a business owner, someone from a nonprofit and someone to provide a university aspect,” Keil said. “We want the participants to inquire with a wide range of leadership questions. Everyone in the audience will have different goals, so this provides a good variety of sources.” McDermott also said time will be set aside for attendees to network with some of the high-level student leaders from prominent student organizations on campus. All female students are invited to take part. “The retreat is for current students at Iowa State University,” McDermott said. “Undergrads, graduate students and doctoral students are all welcome to attend.” Keil expressed regret that such a unique opportunity wasn’t offered during her time at Iowa State and stressed the retreat’s importance. “I didn’t have anything like this. This wasn’t going on when I was in school and I wish it had been. I wish I could attended,” Keil said. “It’s very valuable information, no matter what walk of life you choose.” Anyone interested in attending the Women’s Leadership Retreat can register online until Dec. 6.

‘Inclusive’ prayer still excludes nonreligious folk Jonathan Krueger/Iowa State Daily

Holmes’ jokes about farmers and daylight saving time show a lack of understanding about contributions they make in the U.S.

Comedian fails to educate self about farmers Comedians love to push the limits of what is deemed socially acceptable. They go into subjects that many would never touch. Sometimes this is successful, and people are able to laugh at topics that would normally offend. A comedian knows they have been particularly successful when even the people they are making fun of are laughing. This takes knowledge of the individuals, enough for them to chuckle under their breath and say: “Yep, that sounds like me.” But sometimes, comedians miss the boat entirely. Pete Holmes, a comedian with his own show titled “The Pete Holmes Show,” most certainly did not hit the peg when it came to a Nov. 4 show that blamed farmers for daylight saving time, for which Holmes’ has an apparent distaste. There is certainly nothing wrong with poking fun at farmers, but Holmes lacked any tact and lacked even basic knowledge of farmers to be able to make any jokes that a farmer could even chuckle at. On top of that, he got almost all the information surrounding daylight saving time wrong. In the beginning of his show, Holmes made the point to say farmers were a very small group of individuals, really only six or seven people, and that the whole reason for daylight saving time was so farmers could have more time take care of their wheat. To top it off, during his show, Holmes consistently represented these farmers with a monotonous, boring voice meant to make the farmer sound slow and unintelligent. Most of this, of course, was exaggerated for the purpose of entertainment, but there was simply nothing to laugh at. The idea that farmers proposed daylight saving time is a myth. Benjamin Franklin, George Vernon Hudson and William Willett have all been given credit for some extent for the idea of daylight saving time, which was first implemented during World War I so that the Allies could conserve coal. The idea had literally nothing to do with farmers. This makes one wonder if Holmes purposefully chose farmers as the butt of his jokes simply because he assumed them to be easy targets. Or, perhaps, he was just that unsuccessful in his research of the daylight saving tradition. Later in the show, Holmes asked: “I just want to know why we are accommodating farmers anyway?” as he described farmers as wearing oat bag dresses and characterized them as the “dirt illuminati.” Despite his desperate attempts to be funny, Holmes’ ignorance prevented his jokes from succeeding. Farmers are not some elite group without a sense of humor or the ability to take a joke, but Holmes wasn’t bringing farmers in on the joke. Instead, he poked fun at a subject he seemed to know nothing about, perpetuating incorrect stereotypes of farmers and making them out to be bumbling idiots. Holmes has the right to say whatever he believes to be funny, but farmers have the right to be angry for being so blatantly misrepresented. It’s understandable that many people who have lived in the city do not understand what farmers provide for them or the human labor that goes into the food they put on their tables each day. People should take the time to educate themselves on what thousands of their fellow Americans are doing each day to make sure they are well fed. We should not continue to stereotype such a group of diverse, hard working individuals.

T

he U.S. Supreme Court is currently hearing the case Greece v. Galloway, which could have major implications for the future of state-sponsored religion. The case concerns the town of Greece, N.Y., and its endorsement of a specific religious belief. As the story goes, before every town board meeting, since 1998, the board members begin by reciting a Christian prayer. It seems clear that the town of Greece will not get away with its endorsement of a religion, given its clear violation of the First Amendment. The co-plaintiffs are Linda Stephens and Susan Galloway, nonreligious and Jewish respectively. The court, ironically, opened the public session as it always has, with the marshal declaring: “God save the United States and this honorable court.” To contextualize the debate over the tradition to open legislatures with a prayer, it would be prudent to review our history on the matter. In 1802, Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to the Danbury Baptist association

in response to their concern over persecution of their faith by the Congregationalists of Connecticut. Jefferson’s letter itself is an eloquent reiteration of the separation of Church and State: “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature would ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.’” (The term “wall of separation,” which is so often quoted by secularists like myself, made its first appearance here.) No articulation can fully express the profoundness of those words. They represent the culmination, as it was hoped, of the ongoing struggle to prevent religious endorsement from the government. It is upon this struggle the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was forged, which afforded the Danbury Baptists religious freedom against the other religions. As Jefferson saw it, the only way to guarantee religious freedom was to not endorse any religion. Now, one could simply end with the Establishment Clause as a simple and reliable argument against the actions of the town of Greece. But a more horrifying fact requiring our observance is the wall of separation has been disintegrating with each declaration of a “day of prayer” or preachment of

pseudo-science under the guise of “intelligent design” in our public schools. Indeed, no politician can legitimately run for office in this country without having to pass a religious litmus test (this certainly suggests a nationwide coercion). The use of prayer by the town of Greece is just one among a long line of offenses. It must be emphasized that this is Christian prayer — it is exclusive of other religions. But even if an “inclusive” prayer were used, it would still be an endorsement of religion. That would surely serve to coerce Linda Stephens, who doesn’t believe in “God” at all. The suggestions of “all inclusive prayer” still flies in the face of the Establishment Clause — it is still “prayer,” which is substantively reserved for religious belief. The United States is one nation represented by no particular religion. It is composed of many religions, all respected equally in their own right, so long as their belief does not infringe upon the rights of other individuals. That is the true beauty of the Constitution — it allows me to believe in whatever I want to believe, much to the dismay of many Christians, the dominating religious group of our country. There are, of course, extreme cases where the endorsement of a specific religion leads to horrible outcomes. Take for example the Islamic extremists who

claim to have God on their side and commit violence (in the name of that god) against nonbelievers and issue fatwas against writers and artists. One certainly need not exhaust the point with a reference to the Crusades. The danger of the endorsement is the subscription to the cause. This isn’t to say that an endorsement of the Christian faith will lead to the same horrible consequences, but then again, President George W. Bush claimed he was invading Iraq and Afghanistan “on behalf of God.” Greece’s board supervisor said: “We accept anyone who wants to come in and volunteer to give the prayer to open up our town meetings.” Therein lies the problem: There shouldn’t be any prayer at all. If you’re asking a nonreligious individual, who doesn’t believe in God or any god, to pray to what can only be assumed to be the Christian god, then you are violating the Establishment Clause through coercion. The struggle to separate Church and State will continue so long as a majority of Americans believe the United States is a “Christian nation.” I, like many others, am prepared to fight for secularism until my dying breath. We do this in the name of science, education, medicine, religious freedom and anything else the majority religion would like to stick its paws in.

Has Facebook’s empire started to fall? Site’s novelty wears thin as users seek fresh ways to stay linked together By Kelsey.Cummings @iowastatedaily.com

I

t dawned on me during these past few weeks that my Facebook profile picture is from last Halloween — a picture I haven’t changed since March. After clicking through the rest of my profile pictures, I noticed a pattern emerging: There are bigger and bigger gaps of time between each photo. Not only do I not change my picture as often, but I also post pictures less often, post fewer statuses, and generally care less and less about what people are posting and who is posting it. At one point, I used Facebook mainly for the games, and now I can’t name the last time I even tried one. I suppose you could say I’ve grown incredibly bored with Facebook over the last few years. If you think about it, what has Facebook changed lately — besides its cosmetic look — that has really changed the way users experience social media? Are other users getting bored with it, too? Reports by SocialBakers state people are, with about 6 million U.S. users leaving Facebook in April alone. And though this is only a measly 4 percent of Facebook’s overall users, these downward trends have held up. But other reports argue differently. A reporter from the Wall Street Journal claims that, though usage might seem to be down, those statistics do not account for mobile use, which has seen a huge leap in numbers as of late. So it seems that this data is inconclusive, simply showing a possible trend toward mobile usage as opposed to a decline in usage overall. What does this say of our population then? Are they not bored of Facebook? Am I an anomalous case? As quoted in The New Yorker, psychologist Timothy Wilson suggests Facebook isn’t the complete reason for boredom but that our brains are lacking in proper fulfillment from our activities and Facebook merely adds to the problem. Other studies quoted in the same article report finding most of us interact passively with Facebook, meaning we scroll mindlessly through our feed and other people’s pictures rather than engaging in social conversation and interaction on the site. This passive interaction leads us to feel lonely, bored, and disconnected. However, users continue to return to Facebook because it seems to fill our need for entertaining stimulation in a quick and simple way. So even if people are bored of Facebook, the usage statistics would not

The novelty of Facebook has definitely waned and usefulness of it may have passed its prime as well. There could be less Facebook traffic if there aren’t any incentives to log on.

reflect that boredom. Wilson believes, however, that getting rid of Facebook wouldn’t help to cure our boredom but that our boredom needs to be cured by other means. In this way, I must slightly disagree with Wilson. Though our boredom might not be a direct result of Facebook, it certainly could benefit from the deletion of Facebook. The average user spends about 15

hours and 33 minutes per month on Facebook, according to StatisticBrain. With that extra time freed up, people could spend a lot more time engaging in mentally fulfilling and stimulating activities. Our boredom would be cured. But what about those who argue it is necessary in this day and age to have a Facebook? Not only do companies tend to want employees with social network-

ISU housing options encroach on Campustown Influx of students raises question of convenience By Katie.Titus @iowastatedaily.com

A

fter a freshman year spent in dorms, many students are eager to get out on their own. We feel more adult and are ready to take flight in the competing housing market, but how are we supposed to do that when Iowa State is leasing apartment buildings left and right? The number of freshman increases every year and all of these students need buildings to live in, but is Iowa State making the right decision of leasing Campustown and other Ames area apartments and forcing upperclassmen to either sign with the university or move out? Is there a solution where all students will be happy? Iowa State is already leasing Legacy and Maricopa apartment buildings from Campustown this year, and they are now also considering leasing Cyclone apartments as well. This news is upsetting to students who are interested in leasing these Campustown residencies because now they will come furnished with student housing type of furniture and they are paid for via the U-bill which can defeat the purpose of living on your own. The student housing also comes fully equipped with a resident assistant on every floor. If that doesn’t make you feel like you are back in freshman year again living in the dorms, I don’t know what would. Will this change the structure of Campustown? Campustown is known for being the area in which many upperclassmen live. It is where we live, work and play. If more underage students are living in Campustown, it could be possible for the type of “scene” to change. Campustown might start more around Welch Avenue rather than on Stanton Avenue. The hangout in the living areas will be a younger group and could have younger based activities, similar to Maple-Willow-Larch. This could possibly do two things: One, it could eliminate the party scene for the residences of Cyclone and Legacy and, two, encourage those underage living in the area to be more consumed by said party scene. What other options does the university have? Yes, they could build new apartments, and they could be planning to do so, but that could take a long time to get into motion. Since there are already students living in the dens of the residence halls and in various nonuniversity apart-

Hayley Hochstetler/Iowa State Daily

Housing options for students, freshman especially, are being considered carefully by the university. With limited space it is important that there are convenient locations for students, while there is also accessibility to apartments that allow for more independence for some students.

ments, the university is in an urgent need to start housing these students and in order to do that they need space, and Campustown in the closest place. Are there other options available? Should more students start moving into housing that is considered upperclassmen housing, such as Frederiksen Court and University Village? These areas have just as many rooms available as the spaces in Campustown. This suggestion could also put upperclassmen students in a bind who enjoy living on campus, or who want to pay for their housing via the U-bill. As students, all we have to do is sit back and wait. We won’t know what Iowa State will decide to do until nearly the

spring semester, so if you plan on living in Legacy or Maricopa or Cyclone, don’t forget to sign a housing contract with the university before it’s too late. If you are interested in looking at apartments consider looking at different buildings in Campustown or consider speeding up your decision for whether or not you plan to live on campus. In order to live anywhere near campus, acting fast would be the best choice. In the past year, students have been offered money to move out of the dorms by the university and find a new place to live. It is questionable whether Iowa State will be offering the same offer to students this year who have already renewed their

lease. Housing close to campus isn’t the only option that is left available to students, there are still places available outside of Campustown, and although that might not seem ideal because of the distance away from campus, in return the rent is usually cheaper. Finding a place to live is easier the sooner you act. Iowa State offers many different options for places to live but is starting to eliminate places near the university that are not considered dorms. In order to find somewhere to live that is considered “off campus,” students must start to make decisions quickly and decide where we want to live before we get left behind.

America: Land of the free, home of the woefully obese Reluctant citizens prolong problems in U.S. economy By Taylor.Finn @iowastatedaily.com

A

merica, a powerful nation, where all are free and — as of late — many are overweight. My uncle works as an engineer in the beverage industry, and he sent me a link the other day about the dangers of sugar consumption and how it affects your weight. As I was reading through the research I came across a section in which there was a bar graph that showed the percentage of overweight adults for a series of 41 different countries. I can’t say I was surprised to see the bar representing the overweight adults in America to be longer than all the others, I was actually expecting it. Those of you who are a bit competitive would have even been proud by the margin in which we are winning the race to obesity. But is it really the race America should want to be winning? This definitely isn’t the first article written about the obesity epidemic in America; it has been brought to our attention numerous times. Yet, we don’t seem to be making any significant progress. Today in the United States, there are more than 200,000 fast food restaurants; in 2010 over one-third of American adults were considered to be obese; and the french fry is the most commonly eaten “vegetable.”

>>FACEBOOK p4 ing skills to help promote their companies, but college groups and even friends may utilize a Facebook page or invite feature to keep users up-to-date with the most recent events and activities. These reasons seem like

Let that last fact sink in for a little while. According to the same article given to me by my uncle, the high sugar content that seems to be a staple in the American diet increases the body mass index. This increase can cause numerous health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fatty liver disease and cancer. We all know that there is a correlation between bad diets and poor health. However, an aspect of the obesity epidemic in America that many don’t consider is the way in which it affects our economy. In 2009, Health Affairs reported obesity-related health problems cost $147 billion per year. Which, once the math was done, came out to be around 10 percent of all medical spending. If obesity was taken completely out of the picture, the amount spent on Medicaid would be 11.8 percent lower. Numbers like this prove the cost of unhealthy eating is not just a personal problem; when individuals decide to disregard their diets, the entire nation pays for it. So for all you fiscallyminded individuals, reach for the apple instead of the potato chips next time, because in the long run, you will be doing your checkbook a favor. However, what I am still confused about is that even though a majority of the population is aware of the detrimental effects obesity has on their overall health, and despite the fact that obesity hurts the nation’s economy, Americans refuse to be active participants in improving the

current situation. Many have even devoted their time and energy to fighting against measures taken by the U.S. government to better the health of country. In 2013, when Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York City, proposed a ban on all sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces, the public was outraged. Nearly 53 percent of New Yorkers were against the ban, and hundreds showed up at a march to demonstrate their aversion for Bloomberg’s proposal. The mayor refused to back down and defended his stance in an interview with CBS where he said: “If government’s purpose isn’t to improve the health and longevity of its citizens, I don’t know what its purpose is.” Legislators can see the devastating track the American population is going down in terms of health. California is currently in the process of passing a tax on junk food, and the nation’s first lady has made it her mission to create an active, health-conscious nation. Unfortunately, as seen in New York City, American citizens continue to be reluctant to any sort of change, and until we can face the facts and begin to change the way we all think about health and diets, there will be no progression in the fight against obesity. We know the health risks associated with unhealthy eating, so there is no better time than now to redefine the American diet. If, as a country, we continue to turn the other shoulder and ignore the problems we are having with obesity, we will continue to be longest bar on the graph.

To combat obesity in New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed a ban on sugary drinks in excess of 16 ounces, which was met with aversion and protests. Obesity is a problem that affects millions nationwide — not only those who are obese but also taxpayers and the health care providers.

a Facebook account, and they manage to function in life as well as the rest of us users. These people tend to be in favor of the more old-fashioned ways of communication, such as by phone or face-to-face conversation. But perhaps these methods

are eventually to become outdated. What is to say that Facebook, with its millions of users, will not eventually be forgotten as something greater and more advanced comes along? So I probably won’t delete my Facebook account. Despite all my boredom and apathy

about the site, I just can’t bring myself to get rid of it just quite yet. Soon, maybe I’ll just quit getting on Facebook altogether. But, maybe Facebook will end up deleting my account for me as the rest of its users figure out how bored they are, too, and this great Internet empire falls.

Club focuses on safety at CyTrax By Chase.Russell @iowastatedaily.com A trail of street cones and sidewalk chalk in lot B4 near Hilton Coliseum mapped the course for the ISU Motorcycle Club’s biannual CyTrax event in early November. An event focused on safety, CyTrax is a solo time trial designed to give riders of all experience levels, the opportunity to test their skills and improve in a safe and controlled environment. While many types of vehicles, including motorcycles, ATVs and scooters, are permitted in the event, each participant must pass a number of safety checks before taking the course. “It does a lot for new riders, especially. You never have the chance to do this on the road until something bad is happening,” said Trevor Stoakes, club president and senior in mechanical engineering. “Having a controlled environment like this really helps out with being able to really understand what your bike can do and how you can react safely without losing control of your bike.” Stoakes has been a member of the ISU Motorcycle Club since his freshman year. Like many members in the club, Stoakes got his start riding dirt bikes and ATVs at a young age and purchased a motorcycle after starting college. The organization hosts a number of events for its members, including a weekly group ride, drag racing trips, the International Motorcycle Show trip and the Indianapolis MotoGP trip in addition to CyTrax. Allen Paczynski, club treasurer and senior in construction engineering, said he has seen the ISU Motorcycle Club go through a decline in membership activity during his freshman year. “There were a lot of dedicated members; there were a lot of different activities. And then, they all graduated,” Paczynski said. “There was no one to come in, so we had to rebuild a little bit.” Paczynski was appointed treasurer of

the club during his freshman year when there were as many remaining members as there were officer positions. Following a period of declining membership enrollment and club activity, Stoakes and Paczynski began to rebuild the club to its former status. “I was a member for about a year before things started slowing down,” Stoakes said. “That’s when I picked up presidency, and we kind of took off from there and built it up.”

Now with a roster of 50 active members, the ISU Motorcycle Club hosts a number of regularly scheduled events, such as group rides, stunt nights, racetrack trips, spring break trips and pocket bike races. In addition to a rejuvenated undergraduate membership, Stoakes and his club have been able to develop an extensive network of current and former members. Stoakes said catering to the interests

of the club’s members is a major goal of the group. Stoakes and Paczynski said their club focuses on simple goals such as keeping members in touch through similar interests. “The goal of the club is to get likeminded people together,” Stoakes said. “It’s always a lot more fun riding in a group than it is riding by yourself.” The ISU Motorcycle Club’s next CyTrax event will be during Iowa State’s Veishea 2014.

Rohach works to improve before playing Oklahoma By Dylan.Montz @iowastatedaily.com Grant Rohach and Paul Rhoads both knew it after watching film on Sunday. The freshman quarterback and his coach knew the first-time starter for Iowa State didn’t grade out well in the ISU football team’s 21-17 loss to Texas Christian on Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium. Fundamentally, Rohach was not where he nor the ISU offense wanted him to be. “He missed too many passes. He made too many poor decisions. He’s the first to recognize that,” Rhoads said of Rohach. “He knew it, and he knew it when he faced you and professed that right away, and the film certainly backed that up.” When he faced the media Saturday immediately after the Cyclones’ (1-8, 0-6 Big 12) loss, Rohach noted poor decisionmaking on his part and missing passes that should be completed. He finished the game 18-of-38 passing for 148 yards with the longest pass being an 18-yard toss. After watching film, Rohach found one more area he can focus on in preparation for the upcoming game against Oklahoma. “As much as everybody thinks the quarterback throws the ball with all arm, footwork plays a very key role in how well any quarterback passes,” Rohach said. “I think there were some throws where my feet may have been set wrong or I didn’t

have a very good base in certain situations, which are things you can improve on pretty quickly.” This week on the ISU practice field is where those fixable mistakes Rohach said he made will tried to be corrected after he was named the starter on the ISU depth chart Monday morning. Sophomore Sam Richardson, who has started eight games for the Cyclones this season, came in sporadically throughout Saturday’s game against TCU. After dealing with an ankle injury hindering him for most the season, Richardson is now dealing an injured thumb, preventing him from throwing the ball in the way Rhoads would like to see. “In my opinion right now, [Rohach will] be the starting guy for Saturday because he’s more capable of throwing the ball right now,” Rhoads said. “I want to go for that talent level of him being able to throw the ball with the most velocity whether it’s touch, intermediate or deep ball, he gives us the best opportunity when it comes to that right now. Right now meaning Oklahoma week.” At the conclusion of the season, Rhoads said the quarterback competition will be wide open. Just as it has been the last couple of years in January, the job will be up for grabs between a number of players, this time it will be Richardson, Rohach, Trevor Hodge and Joel Lanning vying for

the spot. But for now, Rohach is focused on taking snaps with the first team offense against Oklahoma on Saturday and maintaining a clear mind throughout the week to right the wrongs he saw in himself

against TCU. “I’m just going to approach the same way as I have every other week and just be as prepared as I can be,” Rohach said. “But being on the depth chart as the starter two weeks in a row is a little more relaxing”

Team hopes to keep winning streak going with improved performances By Ryan.Young @iowastatedaily.com

Jonathan Krueger/Iowa State Daily

Redshirt freshman Lelund Weatherspoon attempts to make Drexel’s Alex DeCiantis fall to the floor in their 174-pound matchup on Thursday at Hilton Coliseum. Weatherspoon won the battle 17-6 with a riding time of 3:09.

After starting the season with back-to-back wins, the wrestling team is still finding a lot it can improve upon. And when different members of the team look back on the season opener, there are a lot of mixed emotions about how last week went. “I think some guys did accomplish what they set out to do, and some guys didn’t,” said ISU coach Kevin Jackson. “Obviously, to win matches is important, but I think sometimes you get caught up in how you win those matches. I’m not sure if we won the matches the way we wanted to win them. But to not wrestle your best and still win matches is always a good thing.” Many wrestlers also noted they didn’t come out as strong as they wanted to during that first meet, and are making that one of their main goals in practice.

“It was our first time getting down to weight for just about everybody,” said Luke Goett. “It takes a while to adjust to that, and I think it’s a huge thing for us. That meet’s over and out of the way. I’m not thinking about it too much.” Senior Boaz Beard was out of the lineup last week due to an elbow injury. However, Jackson said Beard is back at practice, and slowly working his way back to full strength. Lelund Weatherspoon, who took Beard’s place in last week double dual, had what some members of the team felt was one of the more impressive performances for the Cyclones. And while it isn’t clear what weight class Weatherspoon will compete at, it looks like he is here to stay. “He’s a competitor. You get what you see out of Lelund,” Jackson said. “He’s a winner, and he is going to go out there and try to dominate every match. I’m

very happy with what he did, and we just need to stay consistent.” The Cyclones have a busy schedule headed into the weekend this week. They will be competing in another double dual meet on Friday against Midland and West Virginia, and then they will host the Harold Nichols Cyclone Open on Saturday. While the wrestlers and coaches know that such a short turnaround in between meets may be difficult, they also know how important it is to pick up a pair of wins headed into the tournament. “We need to get the momentum ball rolling. If we can go out there like were capable of, we’ll beat Midland and West Virginia [on] Friday,” said senior Kyven Gadson. “And then going into Saturday, it’s very important for us to perform at our own tournament. Starting off 4-0 is huge for us, since we haven’t done that in a few years. It will be great for our momentum.”

Guards make impression in regular season debut Big 12 awards Kane, Long for game against Seahawks By Dean.Berhow-Goll @iowastatedaily.com For their performances on Sunday against UNC-Wilmington, ISU guards DeAndre Kane and Naz Long were awarded Big 12 Newcomer of the Week and Big 12 Player of the Week. In his regular season debut for Iowa State, Kane messed around and nearly finished with a triple-double tallying 13 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists in only 25 minutes. With Kane’s powerful 6-foot-4-inch, 200-pound frame, he’s expected to provide another rebounding presence that will be needed with the type of versatile big men that tend to be on the team, namely the 6-foot-7-inch Georges Niang and 6-foot6-inch Melvin Ejim. “I’m hunting them down,” Kane said after Sunday’s win. “I’m going and getting them. Like coach said when I can get the rebound we can just go. Instead of getting the outlet pass and what I like to do is get the rebound and go.” Kane’s rebounding versatility was tested early with Niang and fellow starter Dustin Hogue both tallying two fouls early in the first half.

During a certain stretch Kane played as the four with Monte Morris, Sherron Dorsey-Walker and Naz Long filling the guard spots all around 6-foot-9-inch lefty Percy Gibson in the paint. “Early on we had to improvise our lineup a bit with Dustin and Georges getting two early ones, and we just had to find a way to steal some possessions and steal some minutes and DeAndre I thought really battled down there. He’s really strong, and he can front the post.” Ejim update On Tuesday, ISU forward Melvin Ejim will have his knee scanned and the team will learn a great deal about the extent of his hyperextended and bruised bone in his left knee that he sustained on Oct. 30 in practice. There are still at least three weeks left on the original time table Ejim was given after the injury. “Tuesday will give us a very good indication of where he is,” Hoiberg said. The good news for ISU fans is that before Sunday’s game ISU forward Melvin Ejim was told by the doctor he could increase his movement moving forward with his rehab. “He’s really increased his work on the court, he’s out running and shooting pretty much every day, doing a lot of work in the pool and on the bike,” Hoiberg said.

Cyclones stay optimistic for NCAA tournament Johnson-Lynch says youthful roster shows ability to ‘jump late’ By Clint.Cole @iowastatedaily.com There is just less than a month of regular-season volleyball left to play before the first round of the NCAA tournament, which is set to begin on Dec. 5. The ISU volleyball team’s roster this season is made up 10 combined underclassmen, five freshmen and five sophomores, and only four upperclassmen, two juniors and two seniors, which makes a significant amount of NCAA tournament experience hard to come by for this year’s team. ISU coach Christy JohnsonLynch, however, didn’t hesitate when talking about whether or not such a young team is capable of making a big run in the tournament. “Absolutely,” Johnson-Lynch said. “One of the great things that can happen with a young team is they can make that jump late. When you’re older, your improvement kind of slows down, and the curve isn’t as sharp. When you’re young, sometimes those jumps can happen quickly, and you can take a big jump even late in the season.” Johnson-Lynch said that’s one of the exciting things about having such a young team. “Jenelle Hudson can still get a lot better, and she could take a big jump here in the next few weeks, and that would make a significant impact on the team,” Johnson-Lynch said. “I don’t know if Kristen Hahn can get much better because she’s already so good, but with Jenelle or Tory Knuth or Ciara [Capezio], those people who

aren’t very experienced have the ability to kind of take our team to another level over the next few weeks just because they’re going to get a lot better.” Last season the Cyclones had six upperclassmen, two juniors and four seniors, on the roster when they made a run to the Sweet 16 where they were swept by No. 2 Stanford in Berkeley, Calif. The season before that, they made it all the way to the Elite Eight with eight upperclassmen — four juniors, four seniors — on the team, before being beaten out in five sets by No. 21 Florida State. ISU senior middle blocker Tenisha Matlock has been to the NCAA tournament three times now, including the Elite Eight run her sophomore year, the Sweet 16 run her junior year and a first-round loss to Creighton her freshman year. When it comes to getting ready for the tournament this year, Matlock said they haven’t really talked about it, but she is still helping the younger players get ready for it. “There’s some certain keys during the game that I do to get other people going if I know they’re down,” Matlock said. “If I know Capezio’s down, I know she’s not going to look me in the eye, so I make her literally look me in the eye and see if she smiles or not and make sure she’s on the right track.” ISU sophomore defensive specialist Caitlin Nolan said that preparing for the tournament sophomore year is a little different than freshman year. “I think freshman year is kind of like you’re not really sure what’s going on; so this year, I can kind of take a deep breath a little bit and know kind of what I’m getting into,” Nolan said. “So I guess more of like a calming feeling going in.” The Cyclones have five more Big 12 matches before the NCAA tournament. Two of those will be at Hilton Coliseum, against No. 23 Kansas and No. 1 Texas.

Student’s designs win international awards By MaryKate.Knabel @iowastatedaily.com An ISU graduate student was recently honored with the Excellence in Design Award for her designs at the 2013 China Textile City Cup. Anna Lingling Perry, graduate research assistant in apparel, events and hospitality management, traveled to Shaoxing, China, for the event, which had more than 1,800 entries and approximately 1.7 percent acceptance rate. “Originally, I wanted to use laser cut,” Perry

The Fashion Show kicks off year with modeling tryouts By Mariah.Wellman @iowastatedaily.com A female-only model casting on Nov. 6 and 7 marked the start of The Fashion Show 2014. “We saw a lot of great potential models last week,” said Sarah Bennett, adviser for The Fashion Show. “The modeling directors are going to have a tough time making their final decisions.” Hosting tryouts in LeBaron Hall this year, Bennett said she commends the modeling directors and committee members for organizing the logistics of model casting in advance, and for working to get everyone checked in, measured and photographed in a timely manner. “Modeling tryouts went great,” Bennett said. “We ended up having close to 200 people come to try-out. The whole process was very smooth.” The annual event will feature both men’s and women’s garments, despite the recent allfemale model casting. “We still want to see menswear designs submitted for the show,” Bennett said. “For the past few years, however, we haven’t had very many menswear submissions.” The Fashion Show 2014 team has chosen to wait to have a male model casting for the show since the number of menswear designs have been lower in the past. “It makes it very difficult on the designers who submit menswear when the models are selected by The Fashion Show in November don’t necessarily fit the garments they have designed,” Bennett said. “We are just going to wait to select the male models until we have a better sense of who we will need for the show this year.” Bennett and the modeling directors feel the later casting date will have a possitive impact on the number of menswear designs in The Fashion Show. “I think that students design garments for the show based on their personal interests and strengths, not based on the mod-

els that are selected,” Bennett said. “I have heard of a few students starting to consider menswear garments for the show, and they haven’t indicated that they are changing their minds now.” Lauryn Stromberg, junior in apparel design and a modeling director for the show, said she does not feel the amount of menswear designers at Iowa State is depleting. “I don’t think that the overall number of menswear designers on campus this year will feel at a disadvantage about their submission or creation of menswear garments,” Stromberg said. “The Fashion Show is just taking a different route this year to ensure that we are able to make informed decisions about selecting male models for our menswear designer’s garments, as well as potentially the guest designer’s garments.” Each year, The Fashion Show invites a guest designer to showcase his or her line, using models from Iowa State. “We want to make sure that we meet the needs of our potential guest designer,” Bennett said. “For example, when Todd Snyder was our guest designer two years ago, he was able to provide us with the exact measurements and show sizes of male models for his collection before we even had try-outs.” This year, Bennett said she feels the later male model casting will help the show overall. “We want to make sure that if we do need male models for our guest designer this year, that we are able to make informed decisions about selecting models who fit the garments as well as possible,” Bennett said. The Fashion Show 2014 team feels that having two castings will impact the show positively. “Designers in our program will feel confident that we will arrange for them to have a male to model their designs if they are interested in creating anything in the menswear category,” Stromberg said. “I am hoping to get a record number of menswear entries this year.”

said about her designs. “Later, I found the laser cut only worked with some kinds of fabric. The fabric I wanted to use couldn’t use the laser cut so I used my hands to cut all the patterns.” Perry’s work has been featured in other design competitions this year, including the 2013 Dalang Cup Women’s Apparel Design Competition in Beijing — where Perry’s designs were selected from more than 1,000 entries to be a part of 20 finalists and were then honored with an excellence award — and then The First Xuexianli Chinese Cultural and Creative Homewear Design Competition in Shenzhen, China, where the designer received a second place award. “It is a painful process,” Perry said. “I spent a lot of time finishing four dresses.” Although placing in the three Chinese design competitions was not achievable without sacrifice: Perry said she took time off from academic work to compete and spent a large amount of time working on each submission, giving her designs her full attention. As a graduate student, Perry has been a teacher’s assistant for several courses and has worked with multiple professors. One rewarding experience that came from the competitions, Perry said, was her experience at Iowa State, where she said she felt encouragement from multiple professors in the apparel, events and hospitality management department, including Fatma Baytar, Eulanda Sanders and Elena Karpova. “She finishes all the assigned tasks on time, asks questions if something is not clear and is not afraid of taking risks when the task requires quick decision making,” Baytar said of Perry. “I don’t have to mention that she is a very creative individual — she successfully reflects it to her work.” In return, Perry said she was inspired by the support. “They told me I can work on my fashion competition first,” Perry said. “Without their help and support, I couldn’t do these kinds of things.” Perry said she hopes to take her design skills to the classroom by becoming a professor. Knowing what she does about balancing design competitions and class work, Perry said she wants to challenge students to the best of their ability.

Professor studies ‘single’ relationship status of black women By Antonia.Hutzell @iowastatedaily.com Tera Jordan, assistant professor of human development and family studies, is conducting a research study to explore married black men’s perceptions of single black women, with the hope of determining why black women are disproportionately single. Jordan was interested in the black community and the relationships within that community. In the context of her study, she asked 52 black men questions that explored reasons why they got married, reasons why they stayed married and asked them about challenges they faced in their relationships. Along with those questions, she asked the married men their viewpoints on why black women are disproportionately single. “As a marital researcher, I understand that much of the literature does not include the voices of black men, in particular,” Jordan said. “Women’s perspectives are the ones that are reflected. We don’t hear from men enough about their particular experiences.” The men gave their honest opinions that were related to their observations in their own families and were based on their personal experiences. Stacey McElory, counseling psychology doctoral student at Georgia State University, worked with Jordan on the study. “I’m interested in the role that culture plays in romantic relationships,” McElroy said. “For

example, how do people negotiate their [individual] identity and their couple identity with respect to culture?” From the research’s findings, the men named various factors that were grouped into four themes: gender relations, marriage education and socialization, individual development, and preferences for gay or lesbian relationships. In Jordan’s research, 79 percent of men discussed gender relations between men and women in the black community which was the main factor as to why black women are disproportionately single. “While gender relations are the primary finding, the men did talk a lot about what it means to be ready for individuals to be marriage-ready. They highlighted the importance of individual development,” Jordan said. “Specifically, those findings really focus on working on yourself first before you begin to think about partnering with someone else. Whether that’s finishing your education, traveling to different places, focusing on spiritual growth or learning about who you are as a person.” Jordan said there is also a strong argument for marriage education and marriage socialization. “If we want to help people build and maintain satisfying, long term relationships, we can’t just work at the individual level,” McElory said. Jordan said she believes her research will impact the commu-

classes being taken from that college. Biedenbach said ISU has a formulaic method of distributing funds. “Twenty-five percent goes to the college based on enrollment, and 75 percent goes to where the courses are offered for undergraduate tuition,” Biedenbach said. Graduate student tuition, however, goes 100 percent into the college where their program is located. For example, the tuition for a graduate student in mathematics will go entirely to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Once distributed to the colleges, tuition money is out of university-level hands and passed along to deans, associate deans and fiscal officers. Arne Hallam, associate dean of the College of

nity in many ways. “Let’s open up the conversation between men and women about changes in gender roles, relationship expectations and healthy relationship communication,” Jordan said. “Though these phenomena are not specific to the black community, they are very much represented in the black community. We can then develop goals about where we go from here as a community in building

Liberal Arts and Sciences, said about 80 percent of the money the college operates on comes from tuition. Each college, however, is not the same. Some colleges may receive more money from the state. “Each year in about March or April, the university starts to forecast … how many students for the fall and spring,” Hallam said. “Based on majors those students are likely to have, classes they’re likely to have, [the university] says here is how much money they think we’re going to have next year.” That amount gets refined until May, when the projected budget is then given, so the colleges can start planning around that budget. The amount can increase or decrease depending on the actual number of students en-

rolled in a college or taking classes from a college. Hallam said about 70 to 80 percent of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences budget is dedicated toward the salaries of faculty, professional and scientific staff, computer technicians, lab scientists, etc. “There’s no formulaic distribution of tuition dollars to departments [within colleges] like there is to colleges,” Hallam said. “We literally sit down and look … at the number of students.” The colleges also receive money from the state and external grants for research. Other allocations for colleges may be into career services, events at the Memorial Union or other teaching resources. Rate of tuition does

not affect the rate of student fees, Biedenbach said. Every student pays mandatory fees, which goes directly to their designated location. These include activities and services such as CyRide, recreation and building. Government of Student Body receives activities fee to then allocate the clubs and organizations on campus. Dan Rediske, finance director for GSB, said that GSB has regular allocations process in the spring, where GSB works with student organizations and other offices they fund. Student fees are also allocated to certain organization’s projects, the United Way partnership, Student Debt Counseling and Legal Services and a cushion for unexpected events.

arate groups, due to the large number of participants. Groups consisted of ROTC cadets, ISU students and veterans. All cadets voluntarily signed up for the event, said Steven Brown, battalion commander of ROTC. “This was not required, these are never mandatory,” Brown said. “Everyone here is here on their own time.” The workout that participants went through consisted of two nineminute phases of physical activity and a two-minute rest period. “The two-minute rest in the middle is a symbol for our veterans; it’s a moment of silence for them,” Brown said. Smith said events like WOD for Warriors are important but are a very small part of what people can do for veterans. “There’s so much we can do; this is a very small showing,” Smith said. “I’m very excited that there are so many veterans here.” Nick Schieffer, of Indianola, Iowa, who served four years active duty and is a graduate of Iowa State, shared the same sentiment. He added that events like WOD for Warriors helps out the ROTC cadets as well. “This event is important,” Schieffer said. “The cadets realize that they’re not there yet. This helps them to realize the sacrifice that veterans make.” Veterans Day always brings about a large sense of gratitude to our veterans, and Schieffer said recognition is spreading throughout the year. “Things have defi-

studies outside their home country. Of the 123 applicants this semester, 40 percent were graduate students. Because many of them choose to live a more independent life, not as connected to the university as new international freshman, a mentor can provide valuable support. “With the mentor, I can send him a text and ask him about anything and for sure I know he would do it,” said Yosef Jazaa, graduate in mechanical engineering from Saudi Arabia and mentee of Harper. “He always says to tell him if I need any help and that he will come right away, that is kind of a relief for an international student.” And throughout the course of the semester the mentors and their mentees develop what is the ultimate goal of the program — deep friendships that could outlast the program for many years to come. “We are already friends so we will continue [to see each other] whenever we want.” said Miao Fang Zhou graduKelby Wingert/Iowa State Daily

The workout consisted of two phases of physical activity. Each phase had a sprint, 11 sit-ups and 11 air squats, another sprint and the sit-ups and air squats, increasing by 11 each round.

nitely improved since Vietnam, when soldiers were getting spit on,” Schieffer said. “If you’re a football fan, you see camouflage jerseys almost every week. At Cyclone football games, they always have a hero of the game.” Smith also believes that recognition of veterans has improved. “It’s pretty amazing how often someone will buy your lunch or your coffee,” Smith said. “The Ames community is pretty awesome in that regard.” Austin Hall, freshman in aerospace engineering and an Air Force ROTC cadet, said he believes veterans are important in the community and that

he wants to be treated as a veteran when that time comes. “[Veterans] need to be recognized and never forgotten,” Hall said. “I want to be treated simply with respect and gratitude.” While there is more recognition toward veterans today, they still face many challenges when they return from duty. Schieffer said that assimilating is one of the toughest things. “It’s hard for a 23-yearold kid to interact with 18- and 19-year-old kids in class,” Schieffer said. “Those kids can be immature and disrespectful. They don’t always appreciate the opportunities that are given to them.”

Hill also said her game makes it easy for students to connect to the characters. “It’s kind of personal, too, because the character is the age that the students are at,” Hill said. Natalie Eckert, freshman in family and consumer science education and studies, thinks the game would be a valuable asset in a classroom. “It seems like a very cultural game,” Eckert said. “One thing that really stood out to me was how the characters interacted. For instance, the main character didn’t talk to his sister as a sign of respect for her, which is very different from our way of doing things. It really helps you learn more about the culture.”

community, as well as build on strengths they have currently as individuals and to experience healthier relationships by considering their own relationship goals and expectations,” Jordan said. Jordan worked with McElroy; Kameron Sheats, of Morehouse School of Medicine; Antoinette Landor, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and Chalandra Bryant, of the University of Georgia.

ate in landscape architecture from China and mentee of Kpor.”I really enjoy it.” Fang Zhou’s fellow mentee, Qiao Hongming, graduate in sociology who is also from China and mentee of Kpor, said he agrees. “The mentor program is a good opportunity to make American friends and have fun with them,” Hongming said. “It is a way of experiencing American culture. I enjoy it as well.” With this being the second semester of the program, it is still a fairly new opportunity for ISU students, but one that has already shown success, Harper said. Last semester’s mentors and mentees were extremely satisfied with the outcome and current mentees would recommend incoming internationals to take advantage of this opportunity. “It is hard to bridge the gap between internationals and Americans. This program provides a really easy way to create the initiative to have that friendship,” Harper said. “And once you have that you can see how awesome it is to be friends with someone from a different culture.”

The video game developers at PBS contacted Hill because of her expertise in the subject area. She proofread scripts, helped create the story and worked with the finished version of the game to make sure everything was correct. “The video game is just great,” Hill said. “It’s a little bit like ‘Choose Your Own Adventure,’ so you make choices throughout the game, and depending on your choices, the end result is different.” Hill said she was impressed by how much effort PBS put into the game to ensure it was as accurate and authentic as possible. “Not only did they contact me and work really closely with me as an anthropologist and an ethno-historian, but

they also contacted the Northern Cheyenne community,” Hill said. “They worked really closely with the president of the tribal college and took the video game out to the kids in schools there and had them play the game and provide feedback from the Cheyenne students themselves.” Although actors voice the main characters, members of the Cheyenne community voice many of the other characters. “It has this really authentic feel, and it’s not only something that presents American history in a positive and informative light for school-age kids, but it’s something that the Cheyenne people themselves can really be proud of,” Hill said.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 9 -- Discuss money now; you have a better chance of making more. It requires dedication and motivation. Moving furniture around or renovating the house could be tempting, but it’s best to chop wood and carry water now. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is an 8 -- Your artistic side itches to get out and express. You have a lot to say, so sit with it and articulate. You’ll get farther than expected when you play for the fun of it. Learn from another’s financial mistakes.
