We haven’t been focusing on ‘being full’; what we focus on is how we can help students be successful.”

Pete Englin

10,572 students living on campus DOR develops creative solutions to find housing for record student enrollment By Dan.MacKenzie @iowastatedaily.com Students living on campus this semester can safely say they are part of university history. This year ISU students are part of the largest enrollment ever at Iowa State. They also have more neighbors in their respective residence halls than any other semester in history. This fall there are approximately 10,572 students living on campus, and nearly half — 5,120 — are first year students. With so many people wanting to attend Iowa State, the administration has come up with some creative solutions to accommodate them all. Pete Englin, director of the Department of Residence, said: “We did not want to be in a position where we turned people away.” Instead, he said, the university has taken most of the dens that had been social space on residence hall floors and turned them into fourperson rooms. They have also taken rooms that had been larger twoperson rooms and turned them into three and four-person rooms, which they had likely been in the past. There are also more students living in Wallace and Wilson Halls than in recent semesters. Tom Hill, senior vice president for Student Affairs, said that as a public university, Iowa State has a duty to educate as many Iowans as possible, in addition to those wanting to become Iowans while they study. He said that while it can sometimes put a crunch on the system: “We hope the students understand.” Many students living in the dens say they understand and are quite happy with their situation.

Lawrence Edeen, sophomore in aerospace engineering; Kyle Castle, freshman in pre-business; and Jay Watts, sophomore in engineering, share a den on the seventh floor of Larch. Watts said he does not mind the extra roommates. “I think it’s better than a regular room: We have a lot more space.” When asked if they plan to move out if they could, Edeen said: “If they let us stay, I wouldn’t really mind.” They have even made friends with some of the other groups who live in the dens and shared notes on how best to arrange their space. Englin said the residences are pretty much at maximum capacity, but providing a stellar experience for students has taken precedence over maintaining a certain amount of open space. “We haven’t been focusing on ‘being full,’” Englin said. “What we focus on is how we can help students be successful.” Hill said the residence hall experience is important for new students. “We would like to be able to offer students a chance to live in the residence halls,” Hill said. “It’s more important for students to have the residential experience rather than say we need a certain percent of space unoccupied so people can move around.” Hill referred to studies that say students who spend their first year on campus have a higher graduation rate and are much more satisfied with their experience over all. “We know that first year is important; [the residence hall] experience is a significant experience

Julian Assange demands U.S. and WikiLeaks ‘witch hunt’ LONDON (CNN) — Julian Assange demanded that the United States drop its “witch hunt” against WikiLeaks as he made his first public appearance Sunday after months effectively confined to the Embassy of Ecuador in London. “As WikiLeaks stands under threat, so does the freedom of expression and the health of all our societies,” the founder of website said to cheers from his supporters outside the embassy. “The U.S. war on whistleblowers must end,” Assange said, calling for the freedom of Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier suspected of giving hundreds of thousands of pages of secret American government documents to Assange for publication on WikiLeaks. Assange also referred to The New York Times, the Bahraini activist Nabeel Rajab and the Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot in his 10-minute appearance. The founder of WikiLeaks spoke from a bal-

cony at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, where he has been holed up since June. His lawyer Baltasar Garzon called earlier for him to be given safe passage to Ecuador from Britain. “Mr. Assange is going to continue fighting for his rights,” Garzon declared, saying that Assange had instructed his legal team to take action. Garzon, an attorney from Spain who is best known from his years as a crusading judge, did not say what that legal action would be. Garzon was barred from the Spanish bench earlier this year for authorizing the wiretapping of corruption suspects speaking to their lawyers. Assange fled to the embassy avoid extradition to Sweden to face questioning about alleged sex crimes. Sunday marks two months since Assange fled to the embassy. Monday marks two years since Swedish prosecutors first issued a warrant for his arrest, alleging that he raped one woman and sexually molested another.

>>HOUSING.p1A for ISU students,” Hill said. “The mere fact that we have so many first year students wanting to stay on campus says something.” Both Hill and Englin said what it says is Iowa State is becoming a very attractive choice for new students. Both Hill and Englin say the administration knows this, but sustainable growth is as important as the quality of the education. “There’s a question of how long this [increased] enrollment will continue,” Englin said. “We had two large ‘bubble’ classes in 2000 and 2001. ... The concern was, following those classes, we saw a drop in the numbers. Because we had to temporarily gear-up, people were worried we were going to make long-term commitments that weren’t sustainable. We’re planning the same way now, we’re being conservative.” The university, Englin said, does not want to spend a lot of money to build new residence

We would like to be able to offer students a chance to live in the residence halls, it’s more important for students to have the residential experience rather than say we need a certain percent of space unoccupied so people can move around.” Tom Hill halls that may go half empty in a few years time. He says passing that cost on to the students would not be fair. “We’ve been reinvesting a bit at a time; we are totally selffunded,” Englin said. “We don’t want to overcharge students; we want a good price point and not overextend ourselves.” Both Hill and Englin said

the issue has a lot of complicating factors, rather than just building more space. Englin mentioned the topic of tuition set-aside and how that could affect future enrollment. “The Board of Regents is focusing the tuition set-aside question and have indicated, at least preliminarily, that they’ll try and have some solutions to us at the end of the semester,” Englin said. “That will help with our modeling and will tell

us where we need to be.” Hill said the number of enrolling students can change from year to year, and within that, there is also a fluctuating number of students wanting to live on campus. But the university is optimistic about the growth, and they are planning to build more living space. On Aug. 3, the Iowa Board of Regents authorized the university to begin planning space for an additional 650 people at

Frederiksen Court. “The idea of adding apartments, those are going to be attractive to students for the next 20 years,” Englin said. “We can build those less expensively than we can build residence halls.” And for those students who might want to move during the semester, the administration thinks it can happen. “We’ll lose between 800 and 1,100 students in on campus housing from fall to spring — graduations, internships, practicum, study abroad, folks getting married,” Englin said. “At that point we’ll see some students move out of the dens.” He said the anxious ones can even keep an eye on the

availability of rooms. “The way our assignment system works [is] anybody who lives with us can go in at any time and see all the vacancies.” At the end of any discussion, though, Hill said that student experience is the most important factor in decisions that the administration makes. He says that if students need more residence room, Iowa State will build it. He said he wants to make sure that everyone who wants to be a part of the university system has chance to do so. “If we have even one student that falls though the cracks, it’s one too many,” Hill said.

Cyclone named dairy princess By Rachel.Sinn @iowastatedaily.com The Iowa State Fair added another ISU student to their list of royals this year with the crowning of Logan Worden as Dairy Princess. Worden, sophomore in dairy science and agricultural business, will be representing the dairy industry starting Sept. 1 for the entire state of Iowa. Bev Lehs, the Iowa Dairy Princess coordinator from the Midwest Dairy Association, said the types of events Worden will be attending during her 12 month reign. “They go to schools. They speak at the dairy banquets, the different county fairs and to the different breed association groups,” Lehs said. “Sometimes they also speak to the retirement and senior living communities.” Worden’s passion for the dairy industry came from growing up on her family owned dairy farm, Onward Swiss, located outside of Oelwein. Her parents, Dennis and Joan Worden, milk about 65 cows out of their 180-count herd. After college, Worden not only plans on returning to her family farm roots but also finding a job within the dairy industry. “Whether it’s in sales, customer services or public relations — something in the dairy industry and agricultural field,” Worden said. Worden represented the Iowa Brown Swiss Association in the Dairy Princess competition against seven others girls. Each contestant was required to give a presentation on a dairy-related topic of their choice as well as participate in group and individual interviews. Worden educated judges with

ISU alumna builds on her career with achievements in architecture Rebecca Greco reflects on love of art during her early years By Rachel.Sinn @iowastatedaily.com On Monday night, Iowa State’s College of Design will honor Rebecca Greco, architect and ISU alumna, at an award ceremony at the King Pavilion from 6 to 8 p.m. “The Christian Petersen Design Award was

established in 1980 to recognize alumni, staff and friends of Iowa State University for contributions to the advancement of design through personal aesthetic achievement, exceptional support or extraordinary encouragement and service,” said Luis Rico-Gutierrez, dean of the College of Design, “Honorees may meet one or more of these criteria; Rebecca Greco meets all of them.” While growing up in West Des Moines, Greco always knew a love for art and architecture were a part of what fueled her ambition. After taking classes at the Des Moines Art

Center, Greco found she was falling in love with the atmosphere and shape of the building more than the lessons. “I really fell in love with the building designed by Eliel Saarinen,” Greco said. “I started out as an art major but switched to architecture after the first semester [at Iowa State].” “Delighted” and “humbled” were words used to describe her reaction upon learning she would be receiving the Christian Petersen Design Award.

After meeting with Worden, Lehs expressed excitement in kicking off the year’s events. “I’ve met her a couple times, and I just think we’re going to have a fantastic year,” Lehs said. “We don’t have [the first event] definitely scheduled, but it’s usually Cattle Congress.” Information on how to enter next year’s Iowa Dairy Princess contest, in addition to profiles on previous Iowa Diary Princesses, is available on Midwest Dairy Association’s website.

Can women today balance work and family? ISU women respond to ‘not having it all’ By Elizabeth.Polsdofer @iowastatedaily.com For 22 years of the average undergraduate’s life, the box they can check without hesitation on any form is the “student” box when asked for an occupation. We have all been students; it’s an easy label to apply to ourselves despite our differences in backgrounds and creeds. However, with age comes additional labels and the ability to check more boxes. A recent article published in The Atlantic by Anne-Marie Slaughter, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” asks how realistically can women check the “professional” and “parent” boxes off to a satisfactory degree. “One thing that struck me is that ‘Women Can’t Have it All,’ right?” said Mayly Sanchez, ISU assistant professor of physics and astronomy. “It’s the title. Is that really true? Is it true that we can’t have it all? “What struck me about the author is that she’s exactly the example that somebody that can have it all. Everyone is going to make sacrifices and decisions about personal lives and careers all the time; everybody does, even when it seems to you that people are not really making those choices.” In her article, Slaughter explains the difficulty of planning a life around her high-profile career working under Hillary Clinton with balancing her responsibilities as a mother of an adolescent son who is acting out in school. When Slaughter isn’t working under one of the most powerful female politicians in American history, she teaches at Princeton, where she also holds administrative positions. Even if women are not holding high level positions in government or teaching at one of the nation’s most prestigious universities, they can certainly appreciate the difficulty of balancing work and career. Emily Heaton, assistant professor of agronomy, is a woman trying to gain tenure and mother of a young child. She isn’t shy about admitting the balancing act is challenging.

Graphic: Katherine Klingseis/Iowa State Daily Women in the workforce have increased steadily since 1978. In her article, Anne-Marie Slaughter explains the difficulty of planning a life around her high-profile career with balancing her responsibilities as a mother.

“To be honest, at Iowa State it’s pretty fun,” she said. “It’s not to say that it’s not challenging; it’s very challenging. I’m not sure that the challenges that I have are any harder than any young professional mother. At least in my department I’ve had a lot of flexibility. I still have very high expectations, but I have flexibility and that’s been very helpful. “Unfortunately, it’s not been that way for everyone. I know policies at other universities or at least at this university to have a different department head, [create] a different culture, and they don’t feel like they have the flexibility.” Slaughter argues that a flexible schedule is a major factor that lets women “have it all” but warns generalizing this specific case does not mean all women can have it all. Heaton is not the first professor to use flexibility as a tool to balance her professorship and parenthood.

As the first female faculty member of the department of physics and astronomy, Lee Anne Willson attributed this crucial balance as the reason for her success as a young professional and mother. “Back when I was having my kids people were saying, ‘I don’t know, I’ve never had a pregnant colleague before. I don’t know how to deal with this,’” Willson said. “There was one guy who wouldn’t get on the elevator with me, because he was sure I was going to give birth between the first floor and the fifth floor. ... I didn’t feel like I could take time off because I felt like I would lose the respect of my colleagues if I did, so it was a week with one and two weeks with the other.” Annie Deam, wife of senior lecturer in political science Dirk Deam, chose to stay at home when her children were born. Deam is working on a degree in Spanish, since she can only find part-time work as a French

teacher due to budget cuts. Although she stayed at home with her children for eight years, Deam said she was ready to get back to work when her children were old enough. “Having our children was a very long and arduous process — almost 10 years, and I really wanted to stay at home with them. At that time my husband worked as a manager in the space shuttle program, and our income allowed me to be at home full time,” Deam said about her decision to stay home with her children. “It was a combination of many things, but I was pretty passionate about staying home with them. For me it was a pleasure; I enjoyed it thoroughly but was ready to return to the workplace part time when my kids were in elementary school and then full time a few years later.” Staying at home was not an option for Willson. Traditionally there have been very few women in physics

and astronomy, and since Iowa State does not have a separate astronomy department, fitting in as a woman in astronomy made it all that more difficult for Willson. “I think I would have come back ,but I don’t know if I would have been welcomed back,” Willson said. “There was enough uncertainty about what the heck this person is doing in this department when I first came, and it wasn’t just being a woman, it was also being an astronomer. Physicists aren’t really sure what the astronomers do, so here’s this woman astronomer and is she really one of us or not? So, I felt like I needed to be clearly focused on the job nonstop in order to get through that.” Although Deam chose to bear the brunt of the parenting responsibilities in her time as a stay-at-home mom, she said having a good spouse as a must-have for working women. “My sisters and friends who went straight back into the workforce full time and those who have been happiest and most fulfilled at work and at home are those who have really, really good support from husbands or partners,” Deam said. “If you’re going to be a parent and you’re not going to do it alone, if you’re going to have a dad around, you need one who is willing to do all the tasks that a stay-at-home mom typically does so you can split the workload when you’re both working outside the home.” The decision of when and how to have children is strategic for many women pursuing careers in addition to parenthood to think about very carefully. Sanchez described a friend of hers who, during her graduate work at MIT, planned pregnancies around key events in her career. Planning worked well until Sanchez’s friend found out she was expecting twins. “It was [a] perfectly reasonable planning approach, then life hits you with twins,” Sanchez said. “What are you going to do? “I don’t think of [the decision whether to have children] as a conscious choice, though. It never really happened,” Sanchez said. “I might still have kids. But if I look at why, I think I always had concerns about having to move or not being in a very

There was always going to be a better time, and the better time took a while to get to.” “I think there are lots and lots of different ways to do it,” Deam said. “The way I did it worked well for me, and it could be a direction other women might take. Some women don’t want to be at home full time and some people’s careers don’t allow them to do that. Some careers, like teaching, are more forgiving to women who choose to stay home with their young children. Whatever your profession, it is crucial to go into marriage and then parenting with a partner who is willing to support you in whatever choices you make.” “I think people choose different things. Everybody makes a choice. Is there some magical formula in which your life somehow looks like as if you’re sliding by and doing everything? No. Everything

takes a huge amount of effort, whether it be you spend a lot of time working for your career, or you try to make your work-balance,” Sanchez said. “There’s going to be regrets; there’s always going to be regrets.” “It’s really amazing to me how the department head and the college can completely set the tone and make it either a fun environment to get your things done or something that makes you want to quit, which has happened to most women in the sciences,” Heaton said. “I don’t think it’s worth going some place that is not committed to your retention and is not committed to your success. It shouldn’t be a weedout process; it should be a joint development.” The light at the end of the tunnel for women in science, in addition to balancing motherhood and professorship, is what Sanchez refers to as a “critical mass” of women who are able to support each other. “My first year I didn’t

I think it’s really huge to have a network of people,” Heaton said. “If you feel like you have a group of people who care about you and you care about them, it’s a whole of a lot easier to do it together.” The clear message each woman gave when asked to give advice to women is to make their own paths in life. While not every woman can identify with Slaughter’s success and lifestyle, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” is a viral article because it raises so many questions women have about balancing careers and children. “I think that what we all underappreciate when we’re young is that we’re all going to have to make choices about what we do,” Willson said. “She’s simply pointing out some of the choices that she has had to make.”

Iowa State Fair

One-on-one: Matthew Costello, showman By Frances.Myers @iowastatedaily.com The Iowa State Fair is nothing new for Matthew Costello, junior in dairy science. He has been showing dairy cattle at the fair for six years. Costello sat down with the Daily to discuss his experiences with the state fair and how it has impacted his decision to major in dairy science.

So Matthew, what are you showing this year? This year at the state fair my family and I showed Registered Holstein and Ayrshire dairy cattle.

How long have you been showing at state fair?

I have been showing at the State Fair since I was 14. This year was my sixth year in a row.

Have you always showed the same livestock or were there ever years when you differed in what you showed?

I have always shown dairy cattle at the fair. There were several years that I showed FFA crops such as corn, oats, and hay also.

How did you get involved with state fair showing? I had relatives who had shown at

the fair previously for several years. I decided to join them when I was 14 years old.

How long do you typically work with your cattle? I typically begin working extensively with my heifers near the begin-

ning of June. Heifers are kept at my house and cared for year-round to ensure they are in top show quality.

ty to connect with others in the dairy industry and compare my hard work to theirs.

What’s it like when you’re in the show ring? What goes through your head? Is there anything you do to prepare beforehand?

What are you looking forward to most?

Being in the ring has the same feeling as any competition. You know your competitors and what they have. All you can do is show your animal to the best of her ability and hope the judge likes what you have. I’m always making sure my animal is being presented at her best while trying to figure out what the judge is thinking and whether I am going to win. I stay focused and concentrated. Preparation for the show always begins early in the morning when animals are cleaned and in top show quality.

So what is your favorite part of state fair? My favorite part is the opportuni-

I look forward to catching up with old friends and hopefully a few purple (first place) ribbons.

What is your least favorite part? It’s August and it is almost always hot. With all those animals in the barn it gets to be even hotter than what it is outside so you have to find ways to deal with it. It’s hard at times.

How do you hope to use your experiences with showing dairy cattle to impact your future? My experience showing dairy cattle lead me to choose my major in dairy science and lead me to be employed by CRV USA which is a dairy AI stud and service company.

ISU alumnus shares lifetime with Iowa State Fair By Trevor.Werner @iowastatedaily.com For many people, the Iowa State Fair is a fun excursion that comes every year, but for one man it has become something more. Don Greiman, of Garner, has dedicated much of his life to the fair and keeping it around. For the past 47 years, Don hasn’t missed a single day of the state fair. This year, Greiman was honored as being grand marshal of the Iowa State Fair Parade. “The Iowa State Fair is one of those activities you wish to never end,” Greiman said. “I never get sick of the fair.” A graduate of Iowa State, Greiman spent much of his life caring for his family farm, which he inherited from his father. Today, the farm is

managed by Greiman’s son and daughter-in-law, Ted and Mary Greiman. Their purebred Angus herd, which is one of the oldest in the country, was started by Greiman’s grandfather, who traded a Percheron stallion for his first Angus bull in 1896.

“I took over from my dad, and Ted has taken our herd to the next level,” Greiman said. “My grandson, Cole, showed the grand champion female at the National Junior Angus Show in Louisville, Ky. Cole’s brother, Kyle, showed the champion bred and owned the year before, and Cole showed the Champion Bred and Owned the year before that. Grandpa is very proud.” Greiman, 85, first attended the state fair when he was 3 years old and began developing habits he would carry into adulthood. Today, he still refers to himself as “a corn dog junkie.” Greiman served as a member of the Iowa State Fair Board for 44 years until his retirement in 2009. During that time he was president of the board twice. He was in-

has raised over $85 million, through individual contributions, state appropriations, inkind services, and corporate, federal and state grants. “Don was very instrumental in the formation of the Blue Ribbon Foundation,” said Alan Brown, vice president of the Iowa State Fair Board. “We fully appreciate what he and boards of the past have done to preserve the fairgrounds. I know they went through some challenging times and brought back to Iowa the treasure that the state fairgrounds are.” Last year the foundation named Greiman the Official Iowa State Fair Ambassador. Greiman’s new book, “A Blue Ribbon Life: Memories of the Iowa State Fair,” chronicles his experiences on the Iowa State Fair Board as well as showing purebred cattle.

The book was cowritten with ISU theater professor Jane Cox. The cost of the book is $20 and all proceeds go to the Blue Ribbon Foundation. He came up with the idea for his title “Living a Blue Ribbon Life” because, for people who show cattle, a blue ribbon represents “above average.” “The Blue Ribbon Foundation has played a very important part in the Iowa State Fair,” Greiman said. “Without them, I don’t think the fair would have been able to accomplish what it has in restoring old buildings and building new facilities. We were in a situation where our buildings were deteriorating and the farm economy was in a slump, and the legislature didn’t have the funding to assist.”

Lactation locations offer new mothers privacy By Elizabeth.Polsdofer @iowastatedaily.com While many students are grumbling about the amount of assignments they need to complete and books they need to read for class, there is a certain section of students and faculty who are concerned about feeding their infant family during the working day. Unlike the deadline for a calculus assignment, however, mothers who need to breast-feed their children are unable to complete their tasks at a desk in the library or a classroom. That’s what lactation locations at Iowa State are for — to give mothers a private space to nurse their children. As an excess of 30,000 students mourn the loss of their summer everywhere across Iowa State’s campus, mothers are celebrating the month of August as National Breastfeeding Month. “As a university, as an employer of over 50 employees, we have to provide lactation locations,” said Chris Fowler, interim director of the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center. “We have to provide reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing children for one year after her child’s birth.” As most students spend their academic career attempting to avoid pregnancy, the question then becomes: What exactly are these lactation locations and where are they? “Some are separate rooms; some are part of a bathroom; most of the time they’re part of a bathroom,” said Breina Burgin, graduate student in chemistry. Burgin is also a breastfeeding mother. “Some places not everyone understands that when someone comes in, that’s a mom and that’s their zone,” she said. Burgin said most of the time when she explains to people she needs to use a lactation location, they are willing to give her privacy. “It’s a zone that if people need to rest or relax that’s fine, whatever, but it’s the moms that take priority because it is for them,” Burgin said. “Most of the time I’ve been in, there are people reading. Some moms don’t care about modesty. The room is for

women only, but some moms aren’t, and they get a little cranky about it.” Burgin had her first child during her first semester as a graduate student at Iowa State. As the mother of a now 21-month-old girl, Burgin said she did not at first fully utilize the lactation locations closest to her. “I knew about the [lactation rooms] beforehand, but it took me at least two months after I stopped nursing my daughter before I discovered there was one in my own building,” Burgin said. “It was a more convenient location because also in that particular room they actually have lockers that are connected in the bathroom so I was able to have a locker so I could store all my supplies in one location and not have to drag them in and out of my office with me all the time.” Mothers breast-feed on a schedule — anywhere from once a day for children who are weaning off breast milk to up to eight to 12 times a day for the first month of a child’s life. Women who are unable to keep up with their breast-feeding schedule will experience pain and leaks from being unable to relieve pressure. “If you go from [breast-feeding] eight times a day to zero times a day, the world is not a happy place,”

Photo: Megan Wolff/Iowa State Daily A sign on the door of Parks Library’s lactation room informs students the room is reserved for breastfeeding mothers. The Memorial Union also has a private room reserved for breastfeeding, along with 12 other locations.

Burgin said. “We need to provide lactation locations for employees because not everyone has a door that locks to their office. So if for me, if I needed to breast-feed, I can shut my door and lock it, no one will disturb me, and I can pump,” Fowler said. “Not everyone has that opportunity or that work environment. Especially students don’t, so we need to make sure we provide that for all our students who

need that and our faculty and staff as well.” There are currently 14 lactation locations on campus, including a station in Parks Library. Fowler said efforts to expand the number of lactation locations is a focus she has been working on in addition to working with interim assistant director of the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center, Som Mongtin, to provide additional services to

Starting lineup

Up in the air Starting quarterback to be named Tuesday By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com

Heading into the Jacobson Building on Saturday after his team’s final scrimmage of fall camp, Paul Rhoads could have guessed the first question he would be asked by reporters. “What’s the timetable for selecting a starting quarterback?” The football coach responded without hesitation: “We’ll get the film thoroughly graded; coaches are going to ... sit down and look at the entire camp. Probably by Tuesday at practice we’ll be ready to put somebody in that slot.” The battle for the most

scrutinized position on the field has been in a dead heat between Steele Jantz, Jared Barnett and Sam Richardson through all spring and fall camp. Last season, Jantz was named the starter ahead of Barnett and Jerome Tiller, who has since switched to wide receiver after being deemed academically ineligible for the 2011 season. First-year offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham said the offensive staff will be reviewing tape of the quarterback play “with a fine-tooth comb” in order to make a decision. “It’s also a gut feeling sometimes just with who’s the guy you feel the most comfortable with,” Messingham said. “The

Football

Cyclones adjust to kicking changes

Running back trio vies to balance playing time

Former redshirts step up for play By Alex.Halsted @iowastatedaily.com As the 2012 season nears, the ISU football team is trying to replace its kicking game from last season. The battle has come down to Cole Netten and Edwin Arceo. “Both of them in the last few days have made field goals over 50; accuracy has been pretty good,” said ISU football coach Paul Rhoads after a recent scrimmage. “We have a dead-heat right now.” During the 2011 season, Zach Guyer took on the bulk of the kicking responsibilities for the Cyclones, going 11-of-16 in fields goals and 29-of-31 in extra points. Grant Mahoney added some production, going 1-of-4 in field goals and 2-of-4 in extra points. Now both have moved on, and the Cyclones are looking ahead. With redshirt freshman Netten from Ankeny and junior Arceo, who walked on in 2011 and redshirted after two seasons at Iowa Central, Rhoads is comfortable with his options. “What we have is the luxury of Cole Netten being a true freshman and having a redshirt season available and [of] Edwin having two years to play and could go,” Rhoads said. During his senior season at Ankeny High School, Netten went 11-of-14 in field goals with a long of 47 yards, and made 48-of-51 extra points. Arceo played two seasons at Iowa Central, going 11-of-13 in fields goals and 68-of-70 in extra points. For now, Rhoads is not worried.

“[We’re] not concerned with that right now because both are kicking Netten well and we have that option,” Rhoads said. N e w kicking rules could Arceo a f f e c t strategy One thing regarding the kicking game Rhoads is currently sure of are the new rules that will be implemented for the 2012 season. Beginning this fall, kick-

YARDLINE.p4B >>

New rules for 2012 The Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved multiple rule changes for the 2012 season in February. The changes include: Kicking: Kickoffs will now be at the 35-yard line rather than the 30-yard line and touchbacks will be brought out to the 25-yard line rather than the 20-yard line. The rule is to limit the running start kicking teams have used on kickoffs and encourage more touchbacks. Helmets: If a player loses his helmet during a play resulting from anything other than a penalty by the opponent, he must leave the game and sit out the next play. The panel found that helmets came off of players more than twice per game. Blocking: Offensive players not in the tackle box at the snap of the ball are restricted from blocking below the waist. There is also a new rule prohibiting players from leaping over blockers in an attempt to block a punt.

Rhoads expects ‘situational’ use of player lineup By Dean.Berhow-Goll @iowastatedaily.com

I o w a State does not have a No. 1 running back who will get a majority of the carries White in place. But unlike the quarterback position, the running backs do not have a discrepancy Woody over who will be starting. The system put in place by Paul Rhoads and offensive coordinaJohnson tor Courtney Messingham is a running back by committee. Those three running backs will include last year’s leading rusher James White, Jeff Woody and Shontrelle Johnson. Last Thursday, running back coach Kenith Pope was quick to change any thoughts about there being a clear-cut No. 1 running back. “Right now, James White is still No. 1, but I don’t look at No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 because it’s only one play,” Pope said. “My whole attitude is being able to put the right combination in the game when we need it. “All three of those guys — Shontrelle, Jeff Woody, James White — have some things that you really like, and so therefore

we’ve just got to be able to use that group the best way to help us as we game-plan, as we go into each week seeing what we want to do, who we want in the game, those types of things.” White started nine games last year, averaging 4.8 yards per carry. White took the lion’s share of the workload while Johnson recovered from a neck injury suffered in the fourth quarter against Texas. White scored eight touchdowns, including his first re-

ceiving touchdown on a wheel route in overtime against Oklahoma State last year. He was also named All-Big 12 Honorable Mention. While discussing running backs with the media Saturday, Rhoads said “James White is being James White,” which he explained as him being strong and steady throughout training camp. Woody will be used as the

Other backs Iowa State has three other running backs on the roster besides Johnson, White and Woody, they will be used in other roles. Tyler Leo, redshirt sophomore from Ankeny, will be primarily used on special teams. Rhoads also mentioned DeVondrick Nealy, redshirt freshman from Monticello, Fla., as a potential return man on special teams.

>>QUARTERBACK.p1B hard part with that gut feeling is all of them do things that make you say, ‘Hey, that guy can get it done for us,’ and that’s the exciting part because they have shown that they can get it done.” Messingham said one of the biggest notes from the quarterback play this fall has been an improved completion percentage from last season, when Jantz completed 53.3 percent of his passes and Barnett completed 50 percent. However, Rhoads said that may be misleading since the scripted structure of practice may not produce the same results as the raw surface of gameplay. “The offense one day might have a bunch of plays that are going to work against those defenses called and vice versa,” Rhoads said. Rhoads did go on to speak with confidence about the completion percentage, however, and said it has been floating around 60 percent for camp. Jantz had a few things to say as well: “There’s a few things, the first one is getting into the right play, understanding the defense, knowing where to go with the ball. Basically I just try and be perfect with the mental part of the game. “After that, it’s just fundamentals and being in good rhythm. With all that together, there’s going to be a lot of completions.” Jantz was the architect behind the team’s triple-overtime upset of arch rival Iowa on Sept. 10, 2011, completing 25-of-37 passes and throwing for 279 yards, four touchdowns and an interception-less performance. Barnett, however, one-upped Jantz with the biggest upset in school history — a doubleovertime victory against No. 2 Oklahoma State on primetime ESPN that eventually spoiled the Comboys’ shot at playing for a national title. In that game, Barnett completed 31-of58 passes and threw for 376 yards and three touchdowns. “Those were all really good team wins and a lot of the losses that we had came from turnovers from the quarterback position, not making big plays from our position,” Barnett said. “As a quarterback group, we have to be more efficient with the ball. We have to make better decisions, we have to make more plays. “We just have to be all-around better for the whole team.” In the team’s seven losses last season, the combined quarterback play of Jantz and Barnett yielded a 48.6 completion percentage, three more interceptions than touchdowns and 194 passing yards per game. Those losses saw numerous big play opportunities go for naught, something the quarterbacks are working on making a thing of the past. “If you watch, there’s a lot of plays where it’s one little thing keeping us from being successful,” Jantz said. “Instead of a one-yard gain, it might be 12. Instead of a 40-yard incompletion, it’ll be a 40-yard catch.” Negating the small mistakes will be a big area of focus for this team and for the coaches’ decision to name a starter in time for the sea-

The hard part with that gut feeling is all of them do things that make you say, ‘Hey, that guy can get it done for us,’ and that’s the exciting part because they have shown that they can get it done.” Courtney Messingham son-opening game Sept. 1 against Tulsa. However, Rhoads said his staffers are ultimately not the ones who will be making the decision on who to start come Sept. 1. “Decisions are made by the players,” Rhoads said. “They decide on the field with what they put out there and give us a chance to evaluate. “That part doesn’t necessarily become hard. The fact that they’ve done so many things well together makes it such a close decision.”

Communication is key With the transition of Tom Herman (who now calls plays for Ohio State) and Courtney Messingham as the team’s offensive coordinator, one of the main points of emphasis has been increasing communication between the players and coaches. Messingham, who is planning on coaching from the sideline as opposed to doing so from the booth as Herman did, has had an impact on already increasing communication with his players. “One thing we have as the quarterbacks — and also the offense — is we’re on the same page as coach Messingham,” said quarterback Steele Jantz. “He always teaches us not only the play but to understand why we’re running it, so that’s kind of been the focus.” Jantz said understanding why they are running certain plays or using certain schemes as a player has helped the offense mesh together and run more smoothly. Last season, Iowa State ranked 60th of 120 FBS teams in total offense.

True freshmen unlikely to find time to play When asked about whether there were any true freshmen that would have a chance to play immediately this season, coach Paul Rhoads sounded delighted when he gave his answer. “Cole [Netten] would be the only one that would have an opportunity as a true freshman that we would consider,” Rhoads said. “I’m very pleased, very pleased with this class of recruits that we’re able to redshirt them and that they’re doing a great job.” Rhoads went on to say if the 2012 recruiting class had come in to the team akin to how it was in 2009 during his first year as coach, “there would have been a lot of these kids playing.” “2012, we don’t have to [play true freshmen], which is a very good thing for our program,” Rhoads said.

short-yardage back as he was last year when he scored six touchdowns, with all but one coming around the goal line. Woody had a memorable moment himself last year when he took all three carries and the eventual game-winning touchdown in the second overtime drive against Oklahoma State. Woody was very grateful about having the three-man rotation in place when he talked about how he felt after having another training camp under his belt. “It’s wonderful,” Woody said. “This has physically been one of the easier camps because we split reps with the ones three different ways. I’d think if you asked the defense they probably don’t like having a fresh running back in there at all times.” Johnson returns to his position after a neck injury that allowed him to play in only four games last year. Also, he was able to tally only one 100-yard game last year with the win against Iowa, where he ran for 108 yards on

18 carries. At one point, Johnson’s career was in jeopardy as he did not know whether he would be able to return to the field. It was originally called a stinger, but later Johnson learned he would need season-ending neck surgery. After a long and frustrating rehab, Johnson is now splitting reps with White and Woody and will be ready for the first game of the year against Tulsa on Sept. 1. “Since he’s been back, it’s been like he’s never been gone really,” Pope said. “I’m really surprised about the way he’s responded and the way he’s reacting to everything. “I thought he’d be a little rusty getting into it at first, but now because he’s so mature right now, he understands the offense and understands what we’re trying to get done so he’s playing fast.” As far as using running backs depending on situations in a game, Rhoads said they will only use Woody situationally, such as short-yardage downs and when they need to run the clock out. In terms of a third-down

back and a specific back in a certain package, he said he doesn’t think he’ll need to switch anything up. “He’s our short-yardage; he’s our goal line; he’s our run the clock out kind of guy, but we’re not afraid to play him at other times as well,” Rhoads said of Woody. “He’s the only situational guy we have. We think all of our guys are more than capable of being passprotectors as well as routerunners and runners.” Having three running backs in serious contention for playing time diminishes the title of “starter” for the position, especially with the way the game has transformed in a way that makes multiple backs a norm. “You never go through the season with one back,” Pope said. “You can go to the National Football League — I don’t know if anyone [in the NFL] plays with one back. I don’t think you can because what we ask those guys to do, the intensity level is so high, I want my guys to play fast every time they’re out there. Every play, I want them to play like their hair’s on fire.”

The new season will have new rules for the ISU kickers, with kickoffs placed at the 35-yard line, instead of the 30-yard line.

>>YARDLINE.p2B

offs will be from the 35-yard line instead of the 30-yard line, and touchbacks will be taken out to the 25-yard line instead of the 20-yard line. Last season, the Cyclones kicked off 56 times with the result of 10 touchbacks. Rhoads expects that number to increase this season. “I think there are going to be so many more touchbacks this year, and I think the play almost sort of gets taken out of the game,” Rhoads said. “If you get in a stadium like [Jack Trice] and you have the wind in your face, you’re going to have to play it.”

The new rules were recommended by the Football Rules Committee to prevent kickoff injuries after data showed more injuries in that phase of the game than in any other. Rhoads said he does not think anybody on the offensive or defensive side will be upset with the changes. “I don’t know if either side minds it,” Rhoads said. “We went back and charted our starting defensive position [from scrimmages,] and it’s been right there around the 25.” Rhoads said in the past few seasons the average starting position for the Cyclones has hovered around the 25-yard

line. No matter what effects the new rules may have, Rhoads said he thinks they can be positive. “If you can start [at the 25] with no risk of return as a defensive team, you don’t mind that,” Rhoads said. “Offensively we’ve been pretty decent, especially recently, in terms of returning the football. We sort of like that opportunity to return it.” During the initial weeks of the season, Rhoads said the coaching staff will do a thorough study to see how teams are handling the new rules and adjust their strategy accordingly.

Volleyball

Photo: Adam Ring/Iowa State Daily Head coach Christy Johnson-Lynch talks to the Cardinal team during a timeout in an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday at Hilton Coliseum. The Cardinal team won all four sets that were played. The Cyclones open the 2012 season against Cincinnati Friday in Knoxville, Tenn.

Realignment affects strength of schedule New teams present new competition for ISU squad coming off Elite Eight By Stephen.Koenigsfeld @iowastatedaily.com Many would argue the volleyball team is coming off one of its best seasons under coach Christy Johnson-Lynch. Led to a 13-3 conference record into the NCAA tournament, Johnson-Lynch and her squad advanced as far as the Elite Eight only to lose to No. 12 seed Florida State in a grueling Johnson-Lynch five-set match. This year, Johnson-Lynch said the strong non-conference play will play a factor in how the postseason could play out for the Cyclones. “Scheduling in volleyball is so important,” Johnson-Lynch said. “RPI is weighed so heavily for seeding in the NCAA tournament.” Johnson-Lynch said that from her point of view, she likes to schedule as tough of a nonconference schedule as she can and still make the tournament. Notable matches during nonconference play this season include No. 7 Illinois, No. 12 Florida State and No. 14 Tennessee. All of those matches will be played in the first tournament of the season.

Big 12 newcomers’ impact on schedule With the departure of Missouri and Texas A&M from the Big 12 and the addition of both West Virginia and Texas Christian, the strength of the conference schedule fluctuates between the four teams. Johnson-Lynch said she had to factor in the realignment of the Big 12 when creating the schedule. “I wanted to make sure we have a pretty tough preseason to help our RPI and to help prepare us for the overall season,” Johnson-Lynch said. Freshman Andie Malloy said she was excited to have Texas

>>SCRIMMAGE.1B there and see what they can do.” Freshmen Mackenzie Bigbee and Andie Malloy were two freshmen to step in on the Cardinal squad with starters from last season’s Elite Eight team and make impacts both offensively and defensively. Bigbee said the transition to Iowa State has been smooth so far because the freshmen seem to already have some chemistry and comfortability with each other. “I think we all just play at a high level,” Bigbee said. “We came in, and it didn’t take us long to understand the pace of the game, and we got into it, and we just understood, and it brought us together to be the best that we can.” While Bigbee and Malloy as well as the other five freshmen made impacts in the match, Johnson-Lynch said she will not know who will be receiving a redshirt for possibly a couple weeks. “The freshman class is so big that I would like to redshirt a couple,” Johnson-Lynch said. “I’m just not sure who it will be yet. We just have a lot of good freshmen. We’re getting closer to some decisions, but we haven’t talked about that with the players yet.” Hahn, a native of Cedar Rapids, also contributed by recording 21 digs and three

assists as libero. Hahn’s passing has also become another weapon the Cyclones will try to take advantage of this season. “She’s a very consistent passer and is even more comfortable taking up more of the court now,” JohnsonLynch said. She’s running a lot of balls down. It’s really tough to Hahn get the ball down on her

“She’s a very consistent passer and is even more comfortable taking up more of the court now. Christy Johnson-Lynch and, of course, that’s what you want from a libero.” And Hahn wants only to improve her skills: “I’ve been focusing a lot on making sure that I stay consistent with my passing, and I think I’m definitely getting where [JohnsonLynch] needs me to be and making sure I’m a leader out there and setting good examples for the younger girls. I think I’m going to get there so I’m really excited.” Hahn’s leadership skills

Christian and West Virginia join the Big 12. “TCU will be the closest place to my house and West Virginia is also a good program,” Malloy said. “I really like the coach that they have. I met her through USA Volleyball.” Morgan Kuhrt, also an incoming freshman this year, commented on the addition of West Virginia and Texas Christian to the Big 12 conference as well: “It will be fun to have some new have become more evident in the very beginning of her junior season with seven freshmen justing beginning their college careers. JohnsonLynch said it will be important for Hahn to be a vocal leader as well as lead by example.

“I think she’s showing a lot of leadership,” Johnson-Lynch said. “She’s very focused everyday, and she comes in ready to go everyday. [She’s] very motivated. I sense from her that she’s ready to take it to the next level.”

competition and new teams to play. ... We’ll just have to see what’s out there.” Malloy and Kuhrt join six other freshmen that were part of the Cyclones’ No. 6 recruiting class during the offseason. The Cyclones kick off their season playing in the Comcast Lady Vol Classic against Cincinnati, Florida State and Tennessee on Aug. 24 in Knoxville, Tenn. In addition, Hahn said she thought, with the Cardinal and Gold Scrimmage being the first time the freshmen have played in front of a crowd at Hilton Coliseum, they did really well, but they always will have room for improvement.

“I think a couple of them could be a little more vocal,” Hahn said, “and I think they just need a little more encouragement from us upperclassmen. “I think that they are going to be great.”

London 2012

In case you missed it:

Iowa StateintheOlympics Four athletes with ISU roots wrestled, ran to personal athletic achievement

By Daily staff The 30th Olympiad made London the world’s stage this past summer, as TV ratings skyrocketed in comparison to Beijing’s

games in 2008 and compelling stories piqued viewer interest. But the two biggest stories from the games for central Iowans — Des Moines native Lolo Jones missed medaling by tenths of a second in the 100-meter hurdles and Iowa-trained Gabby Douglas won two golds, including all-around — did not present any ISU ties. However, four ISU athletes had punched their tickets to London to compete for their respective countries and their ath-

letic honor. Former athletes Lisa Uhl (women’s long distance) and Jake Varner (freestyle wrestling) represented the United States in their respective fields; Guor Marial (men’s long distance) competed as an independent athlete, and current athlete Ian Warner (men’s sprints) represented Canada. The 2016 Summer Olympics will be hosted by Rio de Janeiro, the first South American city to host the games.

Jake Varner

The only nontrack athlete with ISU ties at the games, Varner struck gold by defeating Ukraine’s Valerii Andriitsev 1-0, 1-0 in the 211.5-pound title in freestyle wrestling on the final day of the games. Varner, who was a four-time NCAA finalist and two-time national champion at Iowa State, avenged his bronze medal performance at the 2011 World Trials by winning an Olympic gold medal — the 49th wrestling gold in U.S. history. “Every time I step on the mat, I expect to win,” Varner told USA wrestling’s TheMat.com after the match. “This is exciting. I came in here with a goal of winning a gold medal, and I did my job for our team.” With his Olympic gold medal, Varner received $250,000 from the Living the Dream Fund — a grassroots organization supported by the wrestling community that awards wrestlers for success on the international stage. Varner joins former ISU coach Cael Sanderson and current ISU coach Kevin Jackson, among others, as the sixth Iowa Stater to win an Olympic gold medal in wrestling. “I’m just enjoying the moment right now,” Varner said after winning the Aug. 12 gold medal match. “I will probably have some chocolate milk or a Mountain Dew to celebrate.”

File photo: Iowa State Daily Former ISU track runner Lisa Uhl competes in the women’s 3,000-meter run during the March 3 NCAA Qualifier track meet at Lied Recreation. At the Olympics, Uhl finished 13th in the 10,000-meter run.

Guor Marial

Lisa (Koll) Uhl

Ian Warner

Marial was one of four independent athletes to compete at the Olympic Games this past summer since the newly founded South Sudan — his home region — does not have an Olympic committee. Given the chance to compete for Sudan — the government responsible for his exodus to the United States before the liberation of South Sudan — Marial declined. At the Olympics, Marial told the Washington Post that running the race and being able to run for fun and not away from something is what he was looking forward to most. Marial placed 47th in the men’s marathon. He clocked in just 11 minutes, 31 seconds behind the winning time.

Uhl was the first of the four Cyclone Olympians to compete, finishing 13th in the 10,000-meter run and clocking her personal fastest time. Uhl — known by “Koll” in her time at Iowa State before she was married — is a true Iowa native, growing up in Fort Dodge. During her time as a runner for Iowa State, she garnered recognition with the winning of four national titles — three outdoor and one indoor. With the help of Uhl and her teammates, the United States was able to stride across the finish line in the 11th, 12th and 13th positions to complete the 10,000-meter race in the London Olympics.

Ian Warner’s experience at the Olympics was an interesting one at that. Originally, Warner was selected by the Canadian track and field team to be a part of the 4x100-meter relay team. A race-day decision was made, however, Ian would be the alternate, shadowing his brother, Justyn Warner, and three other older runners. The 4x100-meter event was an exciting one, featuring Usain Bolt and the Jamaican team and the United States squad. Originally, the Canadian team clocked the bronze medal. The results later showed Canada had been disqualified because team captain Jared Connaughton stepped on his line a few times throughout his section of the one-lap race.

ISU soccer team begins season with optimism Junior class assists in building confidence for Cyclone soccer team By Dan.Cole @iowastatedaily.com The ISU soccer team begins this season with optimism. The Cyclones finished last season by winning three of their last four games en route to a 9-9-1 (2-6 Big 12) record. The Cyclones return a number of key players from last season, including their top two scorers, juniors Jennifer Dominguez and Brittany Morgan. The duo combined for 21 points last season. Iowa State’s junior class is going to play a key role in the team’s success this season. Junior midfielders Emily Goldstein and Erin Green were important factors last season as well, playing in all 19 games and combining for 10 points. “They’re definitely a big part of what we’re doing; they’re the core of the group,” said ISU coach Wendy Dillinger of the junior class. “They’ve been playing together now for two years and the chemistry is good.”

The only major loss the Cyclones suffered during the offseason was Mary Kate McLaughlin, who graduated after last season. McLaughlin has been the team’s leader the last three years, and her deparDillinger ture has opened the door for new leaders to emerge. “There’s five captains this year, so we’re all going to have to step up,” said senior defender Megan Longobardi. “Those are big shoes to fill. We’re excited to have that opportunity, though, and we’re looking to Longbardi lead this team and to try and help push everyone in the right direction.” Taking McLaughlin’s spot this season will be junior Theresa Kucera, who started just one game last season. Coaches and players are Goldstein pleased with how Kucera has stepped into her new role so far this season. Junior goalkeeper Maddie Jobe was the team’s number one keeper last season (nine starts), but sophomore Andrea Swanson was not far behind (seven starts). Somewhat of a position battle is underway early this season. Dillinger said the job is Jobe’s to lose right now, but that Swanson is right on her tail. “I think Andrea has definitely improved, which is pushing Maddie to improve and step up her game,” Dillinger said. “I’d be comfortable with either one of them in the net for us.” The Cyclones are expecting more scoring opportunities this season. The lineup boasts a number of goal scorers, both returning and incoming. The aforementioned Dominguez and Morgan are expected to net goals with some consistency. Sophomore Kaeli Flaska scored four goals last season and is expected to supply offense again this year. 6-foot-1 freshman Haley Albert is the tallest player on the Cyclones’ roster. The team plans to use her in front of the net on corner kicks and set pieces, and is excited about the vertical dimension that her height could supply. “We can all score from different angles,” Goldstein said. “It’s going to give us that edge that we need this year, now that we’re a lot more confident, knowing that we can score those goals.” The Cyclones will play 10 nonconference games before kicking off the Big 12 schedule against Texas on Sep. 21.

NAILING IT

cooling off summer’s hottest trend

Here’s what you’ll need:

By Kaylee DeLacy ISD Style writer

n 3 to 7 nail polishes

We don’t know about you, but we’re excited to hit campus this fall. It’s one of the best times of the year to spot some new trends. And what are we seeing? Fresh and fun colors are in style this fall not only for your wardrobe but also for your nails. Those 10 or 20 spots of color may seem like a minor part of your whole ensemble, but if done well, they can be quite the conversation piece. We’ve all done it: We sit on Pinterest for two hours looking at the stellar do-it-yourself projects artsy people do so well. Maybe we’ll even pin a few for later, but never actually get around to them. And no matter what is typed in the search bar, pictures of crazy nail art always crop up, taunting with their ombré glitter and flashy, geometric patterns. Even on the catwalk, it’s been revived by designers like Nicole Miller and Jason Wu at New York Fashion Week, but nail art has trickled down from couture to campus-chic. After much research and practice, we were able to conquer this complex craft to make our fingers fancy for fall. ISU student and manicurist Tram Dinh, sophomore in apparel, merchandising and design, weighed in on the topic. “It’s not easy, but as long as you have friends that you can practice on, then you will have no problem,” Dinh said. “Plus, who doesn’t want to get their nails done for free?” Don’t get us wrong: We’re not quite pros yet. We can promise that if you’re artistically challenged like us, you still can pull this off with flying colors.

n A top coat or clear coat n Transparent tape n Scissors

1. Select your polish shades. We chose some of Pantone’s fall 2012 colors. There’s no need to buy an expensive brand of polish, and we’re loyal to Sinful Colors. They have a huge assortment of matte colors that hold really well, and let’s call a spade a spade: They are one of the cheapest brands available. 2. Pick a neutral color as your base and apply one to two coats on all nails. We recommend white to make the colors really pop. 3. Cut your tape into thin strips. Lay the strips down in whatever fashion you fancy to divide the nail into sections. Make sure the tape is sealed to your nail tightly. Dinh describes nail art as “another form of design and creativity,” so choosing your pattern is where you can really use your imagination. 4. Paint your colors into the untaped sections as you desire. Wait until the polish is 100 percent dry before peeling off. 5. After peeling off the tape strips, apply a top coat to smooth the surface and hold the polish in place. 6. Look like a total champ and nail art whiz in your classes. It’s really that easy. Now go ahead. Make a bold statement and impress your classmates. We know you want to.

Dorm Decorating 101: Texture your room with lamps, pillows By Paige Fisher ISD Style writer

Photo courtesy of Target, $16.99-$49.99

Next in line after the library, you’re going to spend a lot of time in your dorm room this semester. Not only should your dorm be a place to do your work and study, but also it can be a place to relax and let your personality shine. But what, we wonder, is your personality? Are you dramatic with your love of bold colors? Or are you sophisticated, refined and luxurious? Perhaps a more natural, casual personality fits you better. But whatever your personality may be, take some time and decorate to fit. Lamps are a nice way to bring style, creativity and light to your room. They create a certain ambiance in any dorm. And whether you’re studying or entertaining, the right lighting is an important element to any room. It sets the mood for the rest of the evening — not to mention that it’s polite to dim the lights when your roommate is sleeping. An area rug can do a lot for your room. It can add a little color and elegance, cover up unsightly marks and be easy on the feet. A

comfortable rug even makes some extra lounging space in your room. Picking the right rug for a room will complete the flow and look of your space. Just want to stay in bed? Let pillows be the showstopper in your new room for the next nine months. Pillows come in a variety of shapes, textures and patterns that say a lot about who you are. They say: “I’m comfortable and laid back,” or “I’m fun and like making a statement.” Whatever your statement is, make sure it’s all about you. Finally, let’s face the facts: Your bed is the centerpiece of your room. Although your dorm room probably only has a single bed, that twin extra long is probably the largest piece of furniture in your space. Try dressing it up with a stylish duvet or comforter. Fun, floral patterns can shift the mood in your room from dim to cheerful and add a bit of femininity. Remember though, if you are using an over-the-top print, make sure to use quieter, solid colors for pillows and décor. After all, you don’t want both a busy schedule and a busy dorm room.

Interning as an

DEPARTMENTAL

Urbanite

By Kayla Kienzle ISD Style assistant editor

Lynn Stoneking knew where she wanted to work this summer. She spent hours on her application and applied for only two internships, hoping to land her dream. When she learned she got that dream internship at URBN Inc., the senior in apparel, merchandising and design was nothing short of ecstatic. “I pretty much freaked out,” she said. “Working at URBN was my biggest dream.” URBN is the parent company of Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People, BHLDN and Terrain, and Stoneking began working in the product development department for Anthropologie on knits, intimates and sweaters. “My daily tasks changed everyday, but I mainly communicated between the design and buying teams with

vendors for sourcing fabric and trims that were up to Anthropologie standards and approving artwork for various designs,” Stoneking said. She also attended fit and design flow meetings to discuss changes that needed to occur with styles before they went into production, getting a taste of the real-world work environment. “The first couple of days were definitely different. It wasn’t like at school [where,] when class was over, you could do whatever you wanted,” she said. “It was more like when the work was done you could go home.” Working a 9-to-5 day was a rarity for her. “On rare occasions I would leave at 5, but most days I would get done anywhere between 6:30 and 9 [p.m.],” Stoneking said. It took her a while to get used to, but once she got the hang of things, working 12-hour days became easier. “They have it set up so that

if you needed to live at work, you could,” she said. “There’s always food, a gym and bikes, so it wasn’t all that bad.” Although URBN is a large company, Stoneking was impressed she and other employees could create close relationships through communication. “They work a lot like a family,” she said. Because of URBN’s many divisions, Stoneking didn’t work with other interns, but she got to know other interns outside of work. “I lived in a townhouse with five other interns on University of Pennsylvania’s campus, and we were all from different areas of the world, but it was a blast getting to know everyone,” she said. Having her dream internship and living in a new city, Stoneking experienced many new opportunities, but her favorite part? “I met a lot of really rad people.”

MEN’S

Clean-cut backpacks By Ian Laughead ISD Style editor Coming back to school means the smell of fresh erasers, the sound of an old-fashioned pencil sharpener, if you’re still into that kind of thing — years after mechanical pencils were invented, by the way — and a brand new backpack. This fall, however, doesn’t call for a mountain climbing rucksack with all the bells and whistles. This time around, it’s back to the basics. The new look goes back in time to kindergarten and forgets all of those foolish things it learned in between. No rubber-filled shoulder

straps, pseudo-utilitarian straps and not a carabiner in sight. Everything you need and nothing you don’t, today’s backpacks are no-nonsense and give off an authenticity that is more than just a passing buzzword. Nothing says “look at me” like one of those brightly printed bonanzas they sell at sportinggoods stores; but rugged, classic and even kind of boyish, these packs say just one thing: Keep it simple, stupid.

Education

Be skeptical, keep media accountable All media outlets are public services. That applies whether they are government news agencies, individual outlets from CNN to The Des Moines Register, or student enterprises such as us, the Daily. Anyone who has taken on the responsibility of providing a public with news has assumed the responsibility to do it well and to hold people accountable for their actions. Media outlets hold each other accountable, too, by reporting on biased reporting, the use of skewed or incomplete data or just by breaking a story first. Throughout this year you will read in our pages stories covering events on campus and happenings related to Iowa State, such as Board of Regents meetings and the achievements of students and faculty. You will read investigative articles about changes to campus policy, such as the use of Coca-Cola products rather than Pepsi in dining halls. Read our coverage, but remain skeptical. Keep the inquisitive nature that drives the human race forward. All media outlets (including us) are accountable to their readers. Think about it. If no one had ever wondered what lay beyond the western horizon, nobody would have sailed across the Atlantic Ocean. If nobody wondered whether we could beat the Soviets to the moon, the United States probably would not have spent $25.4 billion from 1969-72 so 12 men could set foot on the rock and bring back samples of it. If two journalists working for the Washington Post had never thought twice about rumors of a break-in at the Watergate Hotel, Richard Nixon might not have come so close to presidential impeachment and resigned. One of the things you can expect more of from the Daily is the use of documents and records to support analyze important but more discreet aspects of University business such as committees that set tuition and fees, alter student services such as dining and CyRide, the Board of Regents and the fate of tuition-set asides, AgriSol’s work with Iowa State on a land development project in Tanzania, and what will be done to ease the congestion that goes with enrolling a projected 31,000 students. Your role, the reader, in all this is to make decisions with the information we offer and act upon it and to check the sources yourselves. If there is a mistake in a story, we want to know. If we failed to report on an important angle of the story, we want to know. If you have something to contribute to the discussion (or want to start one), we want to hear it. The words of President Ronald Reagan ring true: “Trust, but verify.” You don’t have to work for a newspaper, magazine or TV channel to do the news: Everybody’s a journalist.

Columnist Barry Snell argues students should make the most of their college experience and take the time they need to live each and every day fully at Iowa State.

Q

uestions. This single word ought to describe why you’re here at Iowa State. You’re curious about all the subjects and possibilities within your chosen field, or else you wouldn’t have picked it. Then there’s the insecurity stuff, too: Are you in the right major? Will you get a job when you graduate? Is my boyfriend or girlfriend “The One?” What does your future hold? Some of these things you’ll figure out. In the process of solving those questions you’ll produce new, probably more perplexing questions about your life. Some you’ll never answer. But what we all have in common is we’re all at Iowa State to become the person who can answer the questions that arise in our lives, and then conduct our lives accordingly. University. You probably think “university” refers to a school, like Iowa State, and you’d be at least partially right, obviously. But check out a dictionary that has word etymology in it, and you’ll discover that the meaning of the word, coming from the original Latin, has as much to do with a state of wholeness within one’s self. Whereas “the universe” refers to the whole of everything everywhere, a university can refer to the whole of a person. We refer to schools like our own beloved and beautiful Iowa State as universities because it is here where we become the people we are going to be for the rest of our lives. Here, we become whole. We add to ourselves the elements that make up our eventual being: Our creativity, our reason, our body of knowledge which allows us to make good decisions as humans and as citizens of a great nation. Gestalt. Webster’s New World College Dictionary defines “gestalt” as “any of the integrated

By Barry.Snell @iowastatedaily.com structures or patterns that make up all experience and have specific properties that can neither be derived from the elements of the whole nor considered as the sum of these elements.” In other words, the sum of something’s parts can be greater than the individual parts themselves. In human terms, raw knowledge, for example, is completely worthless without the wisdom, creativity or passion to put it to use. A song is beautiful not because of the individual notes but because of the way they’re put together. Beardshear Hall and Catt Hall are gorgeous buildings not because the individual limestone blocks or red bricks are beautiful but because of the way the builders stacked them. People are like that, too. This is my second time at Iowa State. Several years ago, I came here for electrical engineering. Like most engineers, I practically counted the days until I was out of here. Differential equations, while fairly easy to do, sucked, and I didn’t really care much about electromagnetic field theory. Like most students in general, I just wanted a cool job in a cool office that paid me lots of money. I just wanted to get the hell out of here and get on with my life. In the years between then and my recent return, I have seen and done a great many things. From working retail, to serving my community and nation, I’ve had many experiences which have changed me and made me into who I am today, which I hope adds up to being pretty decent person. But knowing what I know now,

I wish I’d taken more time when I was here before. Robert Kennedy once said: “Long ago the Greeks defined happiness as the ‘exercise of vital powers along lines of excellence in a life affording them scope.’” If so, happiness is using your talents for good in a way living your life has shown you. That shouldn’t strike you as earth shattering news; indeed it’s common sense, even. But pause for a moment and consider your position here, right now. Most of you I’d bet are eager to get out of here and get on with your life. For most of you, a college education is just something you have to get through, like high school. Most good jobs demand a bachelor’s degree, and all your life you’ve been told you need one. So here you are. Remember, though, it takes time to compose a symphony, and it took time to build Beardshear and Catt halls. Likewise, it will take time to compose and build you into a good and decent person. Slow down, don’t rush your journey. Allow the pieces of yourself that you’ll find and create here to be formed and shaped perfectly and nestled solidly into the rest of the parts of your being. What is built in haste will crumble quickly, too. Take time to ask the questions and answer them. Take time to explore new, challenging things. Take time to allow life to happen and sweep over you and through you and change who you are to make you stronger and better. If school takes you five years — or even six years — instead of four, that’s okay because that saying “you only live once” is wrong: You live each and every day, so make the most of it while you’re here. Welcome back, Iowa State. It’s good to see you again.

The Curiosity mission’s successful landing on Mars, the United States’s most recent piercing of the veil, has been met with a fervor and favoritism for space exploration that has not been seen since the first launch of the space shuttle. The largest rover by far to land on Mars, Curiosity has begun a two year career to scan and scrape 96-mile Gale crater for evidence of life and the history behind potential disappearance.

Colorblindness forgets lessons of old wrongs I

heard a conversation between friends the other day about race, and I didn’t get involved. This is my small redemption for what I should have said. There were several of us watching the Olympics but the conversation was mainly between two of my friends, one black and one white. It started as my black friend said that he mainly cheers for athletes who are black. This upset the other who returned with a ramble on how race shouldn’t matter, we should all be colorblind, and cheer for everyone. Bonilla-Silva defined colorblind racism in his book Racism Without Racists as “a racial ideology that expresses itself in seemingly nonracial terms. As such, it is most practiced by people who never see themselves outside their own myopic worldview.” This is a definition as colorblindness in a negative way. I believe that my friend was using the term in a non-racist way, however that has yet to be defined. I understand that he wanted everyone to be equal and wanted to assert that he himself did not judge based on race. However when white people use that term it is ignoring the struggle that Black, Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern, and other minority groups go through daily in the United States. Everyone who is not white has to put up with racism every day. There is an unacknowledged sense of knowing one is in the majority and therefore the powerful social group. I’ve heard this sense be labeled as whiteness in essays. It seems whiteness has somehow become neutral and people can just

forget that they are white; whereas anybody else is reminded of it every day. Stating that we should all be colorblind ignores the everyday racism and the history of segregation that the white race as a majority has put all other minorities though since the birth of our nation in the 1700s. These minorities range from black, to Asian, to Middle Eastern, to Latino, to non-Anglo-Saxon Europeans. The past white majority of our nation put black people though slavery and segregation. During World War II the Japanese population was put in internment camps. Before that the majority of the Native American population was killed while their homes and lands were seized. Currently Latinos are denied citizenship even though families and workers have been coming into our society for over a hundred years, since before there was even an official border to separate the Southwestern region from Mexico. There is still shame hanging over the head of the present white race from the generations that came earlier. We are not our ancestors, we are individuals. But to forget the history of inequalities in our nation in order to get past that is foolish. We must remember so that we can learn from our mistakes and make better choices from what we’ve learned. This memory must continue until racism is no longer a part of life. Without implying that two wrongs make a right, there is some reasoning behind my friend’s small-

Minorities were exiled from the rest of society by “Whites Only” signs hanging from store doors and restrooms. Individuals could have chosen to be completely isolated, but numbers yielded protection for them from the harsh reality that racism brought. The Ku Klux Klan is only one popular example of the brutality that racism brought onto racial minorities.

Of course, the placement of countless satellites also provides everything from cellular communications to television to government surveillance (my favorite satellite project, though undeveloped, is the “Rods from God”). And while these perks have benefited humanity, like a Band-Aid on a broken arm, they have not fixed many of our problems. I agree with foremer President George Bush’s remarks as he signed

The lunch bar protests were protests where many individual black people sat down at lunch bars and waited to be served. We wouldn’t think twice about this today, but at that time lunch bars didn’t cater to black people. They would wait longer than anyone else and sometimes never get served. These protests forced everyone to recognize and acknowledge the injustice going on. Because of the individual action each person took as well as the size of the movement it forced the nation to notice.

Curiosity’s mission cost an estimated $2.5 billion; that money could’ve gone toward cancer research, genetics, the repair of roads and bridges, and scholarships. Divided, every American would be $8 richer. Yet this rises above being purely a financial issue.

And it would never make the news, no one in the mainstream media would bother. We can not rely on media alone to catch every injustice. We must be conscious and work for a better tomorrow. It’s easy to forget privilege if you haven’t done anything to earn it, but others deal with racism every day.
