Qualities needed for



Search to end soon for next ISU leader iowastatedaily

By Ted.Sics

TUE SEPT. 27, 2011

The Iowa Board of Regents will announce Iowa State’s new president on Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the Campanile Room of the Memorial Union. The candidates, Kumble Subbaswamy and Steven Leath, both have extensive experience as deans, research leaders, department chairmen and college directors.




Roger Underwood, co-chairman of the presidential search committee, said in an interview that Iowa State needs a very specific type of president. “The search committee was looking for a good collaborative leader that will take Iowa State forward, in the same direction that Greg Geoffroy has,” Underwood said. “We want Iowa State to still feel like a small university, but it’s growing, and that’s going to be a challenge to make that all happen.” Other major challenges that will face the new president involve budget issues, tuition rates, fundraising and growing enrollment numbers, according to Underwood. “It’s going to be even harder to run a university in the future due to the funding situation,” he said. “It’s going to take a very skilled leader to negotiate fundraising, the securing of research dollars and the ever-evolving challenges of a public university.” Elizabeth Hoffman, executive vice president and provost at Iowa State, said that Subbaswamy would transition well into the office of the president.

“He’s had all the jobs that would lead him up to being ready for a presidency,” Hoffman said. “He’s certainly had experience in fundraising as a dean, and he’s had experience in public speaking in all the jobs he’s had. He understands the challenges that higher education faces today.” Hoffman said Subbaswamy is also well-equipped to handle the intense public scrutiny that accompanies the position. “I don’t think anyone can get prepared for the public nature of the job, but having observed [University of Kentucky president] Lee Todd for a considerable amount of time, I think [Subbaswamy] understands that that’s going to be part of the job,” she said. Conversely, GSB President Dakota Hoben said that one of Leath’s strongest attributes is his “incredible ability to communicate effectively within any group. “Along with that, with his vision for Iowa State, he can really take us to a whole new level,” Hoben said. “His understanding of where universities need to be and how their roles are

changing is very unique.” Hoben believes that Leath would provide the strong leadership needed to take Iowa State in the right direction. “His track record of getting things done is unbelievable,” he said. “Coming to Iowa State, he’ll bring new visions and new goals, but he’ll also be able to build off of what we’re already doing here.” Underwood said that Geoffroy has set high standards that will be difficult for the next president to meet. “Greg Geoffroy is loved, and it’s going to be a challenge for that person to find ways to grow Iowa State,” Underwood said. “We’re looking for a leader who can balance all those issues and continue to take the university forward.”



Parks and Recreation to receive $1.6 million Geitel Winakor, a retired ISU professor, left a bequest of $1.6 million to the Ames Parks and Recreation Department, according to a news release. Winakor died this past August 15. “Dr. Winakor left an incredibly generous gift to the Parks and Recreation Department, and we are most appreciative,” said City Manger Steve Schainker, in the news release. Nancy Carroll, director of parks and recreation, said in the release Winakor’s generosity towards the Parks and Recreation Department throughout the past decade was quiet and always behind-the-scenes.

Regents set to choose ISU president The Iowa Board of Regents will convene on Tuesday to make a final decision on the presidential search. After presentations at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. by Leath and Subbaswamy, respectively, the board will go into closed sessions and will announce Iowa State’s next president by 4 p.m. Both live video feed and a live chat will be accessible through the Iowa State Daily website.

Women’s Studies program celebrates 35th anniversary

How to ace that test

By Paige.Godden In honor of the women’s studies program’s 35th anniversary at Iowa State, two former directors along with a lecturer in Women’s Studies are trying to create an historical timeline featuring the highlights of the program and progress in women’s rights. Linda Galyon, second director of the program, Kathleen Hickok, former director and professor in English, and Yalem Teshome, adjunct assistant professor in anthropology, met at the Stomping Grounds to discuss the progress the program has made. Galyon said she remembers what the university was like when she arrived in 1960. “Up until the 1960s women did not teach at universities ... they taught in community colleges,” Galyon said. “I think women’s studies formed as a response to improve that.” Galyon said she worked at the University from 1960 to 1964, and then studied in Iowa City with her husband, a philosophy professor, for a year. She returned to Iowa State in 1965 as an instructor in English.

“Many people who did not have Ph.D.s were encouraged to get the degree or move on,” Galyon said. Galyon said she believed she was picked to chair the program simply because she was female and tenured. When she arrived at the university, veterinary medicine was the only college that didn’t accept many women because they did not believe women were strong enough to handle horses and larger animals.

It was not until March 21, 1975, that there was a proposal for a women’s studies program at Iowa State, which was created by the University Committee on Women. The proposal begins, “In the past few years a number of interdisciplinary curricula, such as Indian studies, Asian studies and black studies, have become a reality on many university campuses.” Further in the proposal, it

By Tommie.Clark College life is finally sinking in as Iowa State students enter into the fall academic season. Tests are popping up everywhere and students are forced to figure out how to handle the workload. There are countless strategies to prepare as well as study techniques to get ready for those approaching midterms. “Studying for tests can be a lot of work. It’s important to read the required text, highlight the important details, and look over any lecture notes if the teacher provides them online,” stated sophomore Kylie Vetter. It is possible to fail, and no student wants that. Being prepared and actually studying are sure-fire ways to not let that happen. “My main problem is I didn’t study enough. I know I would have aced my last test if I would have just studied more,” grimaced freshmen Alec Bierma. Every student studies differently and it is important to learn what is just right for that particular individual. There are multiple approaches that can be used to ace that test. “It always helps me to stay really organized.

Sometimes it’s nice to make note cards and study with a group of friends that might be taking the same class as you,” recommended Vetter. As most teachers strongly verbalize, be on time. Instructors will start the test without you, something that can be simply avoided. Here are some tips and strategies to lead you on the right path to acing that test:

How to prepare: ƒƒ Get sleep- brain function depends on it. ƒƒ Eat breakfast- according to an article on healthy eating, “skipping breakfast impairs memory and mental performance.” ƒƒ Do not procrastinate or wait till the last minutestudying requires time and focus, it can never be rushed.

How to manage time: ƒƒ Organization is the key- as long as you’re organized; everything else should fall in place. ƒƒ Make a priority list; make sure schoolwork comes first. ƒƒ Plan out your day — a planner, calendar, or

Alternative breaks offer fulfilling travel After completing their training, groups of volunteers will focus on helping disadvantaged children, the urban and rural poor, Native Americans, the victims of natural disasters and people trying to clean up the environment. “For the children’s issues, we’re looking at going to Operation Breakthrough in Kansas City,” said Kristy Carter, Alternative Breaks public relations chair and senior in meteorology. “As for the urban/rural poverty, and the environmental, we’re still working on that.” Carter listed Cincinnati and Indianapolis as possible sites of the urban-poverty-focused trips. Last spring, Carter joined an Alternative Breaks trip to a Eagle Butte, S. D., where she helped inhabitants of a reservation. While there, she and her fellow students led educational activities for schoolchildren and encouraged teens to think about going to college. Carter encourages all students to consider a trip. “It’s a great way to learn about yourself and different cultures, or even social issues you don’t know much about,” she said. Applications for the program, available on the Alternative Breaks website, must be turned in no later than 5 p.m. this Friday. Giving aid abroad Students looking to serve people outside the United States can apply to join one of the many trips International Student Volunteers leads each summer and winter. The nonprofit’s volunteer programs focus on four main causes: community development, wildlife conservation, environmental management and outreach to children. Through these programs, students can travel to Ecuador,

By Cristobal.Matibag ISU students’ breaks may be months away, but organizations on and off campus are already promoting nontraditional ways to spend them. The ISU-affiliated Alternative Breaks and the California-based nonprofit International Student Volunteers both offer vacationing students the chance to help those in need. While the groups specialize in different causes and provide for different kinds of travel, they each aim to provide a fun, fulfilling volunteer experience. Giving aid at home Alternative Breaks sends students all over the United States to do relief work. This year, the group is offering seven spring break trips — five for all students, one for George Washington Carver Scholars and one for members of the greek community. According to the group’s website, participating students will have to pay “about $200” to cover transportation, lodging and food costs. Alternative Breaks will be able to accommodate 10 to 12 students on each one. Those who can’t pay the travel fee all at once can either pay in four installments or request financial assistance from the group directly — it doesn’t want cost to keep anyone from participating. Coordinators haven’t picked destinations for all of this year’s trips, but past years have seen students go to Arkansas, Kentucky, Ohio, Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Indiana and Minnesota. Past volunteer groups have met once a week beginning in January of the spring semester, though organizers hope to start meeting with them earlier this academic year.

vated houses in the Dominican Republic and run recycling programs in Ecuador Students seeking to help children have taught them English in Thailand and helped to build them parks and schools in Romania (Programs in eastern Europe, however, will not be offered this summer.) People who travel with International Student Volunteers often get to do more than just service. Once they’ve finished volunteering, they can go on optional twoweek “adventure tours.” These give students the chance to try activities like

Costa Rica, South Africa, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, among other countries. While all students volunteer for two weeks, the nature of their work varies according to the needs of the host country. Conservation-minded students have rescued sea turtle eggs in Costa Rica, harvested grass for cheetah cub bedding in South Africa and maintained Thai habitats for oncecaptive elephants preparing to return to the wild. Those focused on community development have reno-

whitewater rafting, ziplining, rappelling down mountains and kayaking. On some tours, they’re able to try more exotic activities. In New Zealand, for example, students can take what are known as “blackwater” rafting trips. During these, students descend caves studded with glow worms before floating down an underground river. While in New Zealand, they can also try “zorbing,” which entails climbing into a transparent, air-cushioned globe and rolling down giant hills. New Zealander Jeremy Gantley and Australian Shane

Grubba, both of whom are recruiters for International Student Volunteers, came to the ISU campus last week. While on campus, they distributed fliers, promoted their organization in classes and presented information to students in the Memorial Union. When the organization was founded by world traveler Randy Sykes in the 1980s, it offered only cultural-exchange programs for students. It has since expanded its offerings to include volunteer programs. Grubba spoke of the reasons for the shift as self-evident, saying, “We want to actually make a difference in the world.” While their work benefits people in their host country, students often experience benefits themselves. A student who had volunteered in the Dominican Republic, Grubba said, had recently told him that the program had made her “feel like the most important person in the world.” Of course, a place on a globe-spanning, amenitypacked trip like the ones International Student Volunteers offers isn’t cheap. Grubba and Gantley said prices for the four-week trips ranged from $3,500 to $4,000, not including the cost of flights. For the two-week program, which includes only volunteering, the price tends to fall between $1,800 and $2000. Grubba said that while International Student Volunteers may charge more than other programs, it also gives students more support. “You’re paying more than you would for a lot of programs,” he said. “But you’re getting better treatment.” Applications and deadlines for submitting them can be found on the International Student Volunteers website.

As an infant 20 years ago, Spencer Elden was thrown into a pool in Southern California to be photographed, naked, underwater, appearing to reach for a dollar bill. The photo would become one of the most iconic images of 1990s music: Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album cover. On the 20th anniversary of the album’s release, Elden, the now20-year-old son of an artist, said in jest that now he suffers more tribulations than other famously photographed babies whose images are associated more with cuteness than grunge. “When I am introduced, they introduce me as the Nirvana baby,” Elden said. And because he was sans diaper when the famous shot was taken, there are other questions. “They usually poke fun at me asking me, ‘Is it the same size?’ I always say, “It’s changed, do you want to see it?’” Elden said he is not swimming in cash as a result of his baby celebrity status. His father, artist Rick Elden, agreed in 1991 to work on the cover with fellow photographer Kirk Weddle. He received no royalties for the job. “They went to the local pool, threw me in the water and that was it. It was a friend-helping-afriend kind of thing.” On Saturday, Elden said he celebrated the historic release of “Nevermind” with friends. “We hung out ... and just listened to Nirvana music, drank beer and hung out. It was a good time,” he said.

Pop star Lady Gaga attended a political fundraiser for President Barack Obama in Silicon Valley on Sunday evening. The $35,800-a-person event for about 70 people was hosted under a tent in the yard of Cheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook. Gaga tweeted to her millions of followers last week that she planned to meet with the president to discuss “how to stop bullying” after a teen took his life. It wasn’t clear if they they talked at the fundraiser. “Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 yrs old, took his life because of bullying,” her Twitter post said. “Bullying must become be illegal. It is a hate crime.” Gaga dedicated a song to Jamey at a concert in Las Vegas Saturday night, while a tribute to the teen played on the video screens above the stage. His mother, Tracey Rodemeyer, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper last week that “it just seems like it was either end of the spectrum — he was either loved so sincerely, or he was bullied. There wasn’t much in between.” His father added that the taunting began in middle school and then became progressively worse. “We went to the school and got some help,” Tim Rodemeyer said. “Eighth grade seemed to be a little bit better for him, but it was still continuing in eighth grade.” Jamey Rodemeyer took his life on Sept. 18. His final Twitter post said: “bye mother monster, thank you for all you have done, paws up forever” and was included in her video tribute to him. Gaga calls herself “mother monster” and her fans “little monsters.”

Blackboard might not be our best option Looking at Information Technology Services’ Critical Event Log last week was like looking at a battle scene: Monday — “Blackboard Learn not responding, staff investigating.” Tuesday — “Blackboard Learn node B is using too much processing power, fixed by rebooting the server.” Wednesday — “Blackboard configuration is changed with a 5 to 10 minute loss of service.” Thursday — “Blackboard learn is freezing when accessing files and got a replacement load balancer to prevent outages.” Iowa State has used WebCT and its successor for many years now, but are we still in bed with Blackboard for the right reasons? Many students might agree that WebCT, a company started in the mid ‘90s, had issues keeping up with the times throughout the years. Blackboard wasn’t much of an improvement after buying out WebCT to eliminate their biggest competitor a couple years ago. It must be good to be in the learning management system business. It’s a business where you can host a small monopoly and sell your software for millions of dollars to willing universities (one source reports that Blackboard has thousands of university customers). For many schools, Blackboard also provides hosting, which costs even more per student (Iowa State hosts our own servers). And if you want it, Blackboard will sell you extra storage space. It only costs about 20 times as much as’s business solutions. Would we lose much by trying a different service? Moodle is used for some courses around campus and works fine for the most part. Other options include Instructure’s Canvas LMS or Pearson’s LearningStudio. Heck, because Instructure is only making money from hosting services, we could use Canvas for free, or at least the same fixed costs as Blackboard, minus the licensing fees. If any switch would allow us to depend on our LMS as a service rather than as an annoyance, that would be great. There have been complaints on about what a deadline really means on Blackboard when the service is only up a portion of the time. Does a midnight deadline mean turning an assignment in by 11:59 or turning it in at 10:00 just to be safe — in case Blackboard is down tonight? Or perhaps aim for the deadline and send complaints to your professor if Blackboard won’t accept your assignment at the right time. While we will likely have to endure Blackboard for at least a few more years, we ask that those in charge carefully evaluate the cost versus the benefit of Blackboard Learn when the current contract expires. In the meantime, do us all a favor and keep the servers online as much as possible. Editorial Board

Work harder, dear comrades Obama sets out to increase taxes on the wealthy


everal days ago, our ‘leader’ announced that he would like to see increased taxation on what he referred to as ‘the wealthy’. This would, according to him, aid in curbing the debt that has been incurred upon this glorious nation. A debt that, in case you have forgotten, has been laid upon us by him and his ilk. Yes, my dear comrades, the president wants to disproportionately tax those of us who do the most work, who labor the hardest, and suffer the most when it comes to workload of this great land. Does he take us for fools? Surely you must understand that it is for our own good that the prosperous of this land continues to be prosperous. We pigs are responsible for the well-being of all, and for the continued affluence of this land. It is because of us that we have the great labor that has been bestowed upon us. It is because of us that we all live in this highly enlightened and thriving culture of ours; we would all certainly be lost without our constant vigilance. To punish us privileged few casts a great shadow over what has made this country great. For you see, our continued prosperity will lead all of us to an even greater future. It is a glorious burden to be placed in the position that we are in, and because of this burden, certain indulgences must be provided for. Surely you do not think we enjoy sleeping in beds made of the finest linens? Eating the sweetest apples and drinking the finest milk? These “luxuries” are taken in with a great deal of reluctance, for without them, we would not be able to perform at the level needed to run this great society of ours. You have no doubt heard rumors about past years in which the taxation rates for us meager individuals were at astounding rates, and yet the economy was still flourishing. Pay no attention to these lies, for they are merely promulgated by those who seek to undermine us at every corner. And let me tell you now, comrades, we shall not yield. Our Dear Leader, our TRUE Dear Leader, would never lead us astray, for Our Dear Leader is always right. Other plots against the security of this land insinuate that ‘wealth inequality’ is destructive to the natural order of things. This is merely another treacherous conspiracy perpetuated in order to upset the established hierarchy. Inequality? Who says this is inequality? This is simply the equal distribution of wealth based upon the amount of effort placed into the system. Those who work hard-

By Jacob.Witte er earn their keep, and those who do not, suffer the consequences. It is merely the way things are, the way things have been, and the way things must continue to be.

And because we pigs are working ever so attentively, persevering through the hardest of hardships, it is of no doubt that this share falls upon us. The wolves are at the gate, my dear comrades, and our resolve must be as strong as ever. We cannot let these lies continue to infiltrate our thoughts and minds. These lies lead to inquiry, inquiry in turn leads to doubt, doubt to paranoia, and finally paranoia to treason. And surely by now you

know what happens to traitors among our ranks. So my dear, dear comrades, if you even think to question the established order, simply repeat the phrase “I will work harder!” to yourself and put your mind back to ease. Those who are in charge will take care of you.

Credit card cash cow leads to debt Editor’s note:

This is part two of a series on student financial health. Look for part three next Monday.


ast Monday, I discussed a logical process by which college students should select college cars. With all pussyfooting aside, today is the day we kill the sacred cow. In this case, the cow comes with no interest until graduation, and when you milk it you receive ample booze for the weekend. Yes, sir, this cow’s name is Student Debt. For fear of understating the situation, I am going to come out and say that student debt is to our generation as racism was to our parents’ or grandparents’. With both debt and racism, the majority of the previous generation pushed their offspring into it as the natural way to do things with little regard to the destructive force that was being unleashed. Much like it had been the responsibility of the last few generations to chip away at the foundation of racial prejudices, it is now our generation’s responsibility to curb the insidious force of “college for all no matter what the cost.” That cost

By Tyler.Lage amounts to an average of $30,000 worth of debt for each ISU student upon graduation, according to the Office of Student Financial Aid. The first problem with our current view of college is that it is a foregone conclusion. Especially in educated families, pursuing anything other than a four-year education is often seen as settling for second best. This is a blatant falsehood that only leads to unrealistic expectations and awkward conversations at family get-togethers. Options such as technical programs, trade schools and apprenticeships often lead to a much more prosperous future than their four-year counterparts, especially when we consider the rate of failure of students pursuing bachelor’s degrees. For most of us, however, the four-year degree represents the best option to continue our formal education. In this case, student debt is still an insidious force that must be viewed from an entirely different perspective than most of us were brought up with. There is little wisdom in

taking on debt at all in college. The conventional wisdom goes, “College is expensive, but short term. Therefore, I really have to take out loans, but I can pay them back when I land the great job that I couldn’t get without a degree.” There are two major adjustments that need to be made to this philosophy. First, college is affordable enough if put it in perspective. With the wealth of scholarships available for everything from your GPA to your parents’ nationality, there is little excuse for not pursuing several. If you need help finding opportunities that apply to you, the Iowa State University OSFA will be more than happy to help. At last count, there are more than one thousand opportunities available through this office alone. Additionally, student jobs abound in Ames. With an active Student Job Board and a seasonal population that leaves a number of businesses hiring every fall, there is again no excuse for not finding a part-time job. With all of the opportunities available to pay for school, and the ability to work during the summer and take the occasional semester off to make money, student loans are simply

unnecessary. The depressing part of the current philosophy of graduating with significant debt is what happens when things do not go according to plan. According to a poll by Twentysomething, Inc, nearly 85 percent of graduating college seniors from last year’s class have had to move back home. If graduating seniors do not have the money to rent an apartment on their own, is it logical to believe that they have landed the wellpaying jobs necessary to aggressively pay off their student loans? I’m skeptical. Succinctly, the belief that college (and student debt) is right for everyone puts unnecessary pressure on people to pursue something that is sub-optimal, and then prevents students from feeling burdened to take care of themselves financially as they go. Finally, it leaves them saddled with debt, often without the ability to repay. It is time to take ol’ Student Debt behind the barn and put it out of its misery.

Circle of life returns to childhood memories W hen I was four years old I saw “The Lion King” with my aunt and two older cousins. That was 17 years ago. Some of you may be familiar with the fivescreen movie theater at North Grand Mall here in Ames; there used to be six of them. We saw it on the sixth screen, located across the way from what is now Jimmy John’s. That was the first movie I saw in a movie theater. It became my favorite for many years, and my friends and I spent hours’ worth of elementary school recesses acting out the more memorable scenes. Last weekend I saw “The Lion King” again, this time with a group of friends and in 3D. And while I’m never enthusiastic about 3D movies (really, I don’t need a third set of lenses over my eyes), seeing my childhood favorite really took me back. It was roughly as good as walking up to a set of automatic doors, waving, and considering myself a Jedi when they open. “The Lion King” again in theaters was just as good this time around as it was the first time. The only difference this time around was that I didn’t jump out of my seat when Scar caught his mouse of a lunch after the ceremony that opens the movie. And then I got to thinking about other really good, classic movies. Think of “Casablanca.” Whether you know it or not, you probably already know that movie’s memorable lines. “Gone With the Wind” also comes to mind. Think less of a movie and more of a filmed stage production. The first part begins and ends with a two-and-

By Michael.Belding a-half orchestral overture, followed by a 15-minute intermission, and then the overtures repeat for the second half. Movie-making is a lost art. “The Lion King” was on the tail end of Disney’s very own Renaissance, which also included “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Aladdin.” They tried very hard to make a good movie, and succeeded: it was 1994’s most successful film, and its gross intake of $783 million make it the 26th-highest grossing film ever. Nowadays, we repackage stories, give old scripts new actors in remakes, and prefer gun fights, car chases and sex to character and plot development. We want to see a rush, not an art form. And then every so often we find ourselves watching on the silver screen a movie made years or decades ago. And we go back. A couple weeks ago, “The Lion King” was number one at the box offices. And instead of showing people some unoriginal, shallow movie where irreverent children run wild, young twenty-somethings can relive their youth for 87 minutes and a whole new generation of children can watch a staple of their parents’ or aunt’s or uncle’s childhood.

Part of the problem seems to be our post-enlightenment idea that we can never go back. Life isn’t a line on which we travel; redemption is always possible. We can even recapture our childhood and youthful idealism if we want to. Sometimes, though, that recapturing requires physically going back. For me that’s easy, since I live at home. I return to the town in which I grew up on a daily (or at least nightly) basis. I drive past my high school or

church every morning, and I am daily reminded of the wonderful teachers who so profoundly shaped me in my teenage years. Watching the movies you grew up with is another way to recapture youth. And if they’re good, you’ll benefit from the experience of seeing them again after a decade. Like good books, good movies will offer something to people of all ages, regardless of how familiar they are already.

The circle of life moves us all until we find our place. That place is determined by the whole accumulated experience of our lives, not just the most recent events. So go back to Pride Rock for a while instead of just living out your hakuna matata in paradise.

College life

Make college a diverse experience, get involved in clubs


owa State prides itself in being a diverse school that celebrates every interest a student might have. ClubFest is enough evidence that school is not just about getting a diploma; it is about making friends and getting the best experience possible. Jason Stollham, author of several articles at, wrote an article stressing the importance of being involved, saying how being involved “will allow you to get exposed to diverse culture and opportunities which may prove beneficial to your future.” Clubs on campus create a sense of community, ward off homesickness and help students discover their passions. Currently we have record numbers of students in the freshman class, as well as in terms of overall enrollment at Iowa State. More people are unsure about what is the right way to approach the whole college experience. We were all there once, just going to and from class, not taking risks in case our grades might suffer. We didn’t get involved as much, just stayed in our dorms and played Xbox, microwaved Hot Pockets and laughed about the same YouTube videos for the millionth time. Club involvement helps you feel like you fit in. It is not just you who is wandering to and from class, walking the same route and eating the same food. Involvement gives

By Caytlin.Hentzel you something to look forward to in your schedule. Get out of that small, standard-size room and pursue an interest. Take glassblowing or juggling, learn how to play cricket, build a robot, play hockey or sand volleyball, even make origami balloons. If no groups interest you, start your own. It will help you make new friends, as well as identify and explore what your interests are. People complain about

time commitment all the time. It is a big reason why they hesitate to sign up for the email lists for some groups. The truth is that you decide how much time you can and will commit and how many groups you want to be involved in. I am involved in just one club on campus. Yet a large chunk of time is spent helping out and having fun with an exceptional group of individuals. I would like to think that I could join the break-dancing club next semester — maybe learn some throw-down dance moves, like the windmill, spin kick. A girl can dream. It has been some time since ClubFest occurred. If you never signed up on an email sheet, tag along with a friend to their basket-

weaving workshop, Ski and Snowboarding Club meeting or even the Canoe & Kayak Club. Chances are that somewhere in the far corners of the campus you will find what you are looking for. Once you find it, hold onto it. Passion is something we all have in our lives. Granted, our passions

may vary. It could be focused on sleep, writing a paper, Frisbee, fantasy football or reading a new mystery novel that came out. Whatever it is, be sure to be involved in college so that when you walk across that stage, you don’t just reach out for a piece of paper and

a handshake, but you reach out recognizing the happy memories and laughs that come along with the years put into getting that diploma.

Johnson-Lynch finds herself, success at Iowa State

‘Moneyball’ ranks with the classics


Mauer says he wishes he could play, turns to 2012 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Joe Mauer says he’s sure there’s nothing wrong with him more than the pneumonia that prematurely ended his rough season. But Mauer insisted Monday that the illness is too much for him to play, that he’d be on the field if he could. Mauer was diagnosed with mild pneumonia on Sept. 16, and doctors recommended medication plus two weeks of rest. He came down with an upper respiratory infection on Sept. 2 before developing a cough and deciding to visit the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Mauer was also out of action for two months earlier while recovering from weakness and soreness in his legs. The 2009 AL MVP played in only 82 games this season, batting .287 with 15 doubles, three home runs and 30 RBIs in 296 at-bats. The Associated Press

Big 12:

No. 17 Texas starting tour of revenge AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — There were seven losses for Texas last season. One of them sticks out as worse than the others. To coach Mack Brown, the 28-21 shocker at home to Iowa State was the “lowest point” in a disaster of a season that ended 5-7. “And there were a lot to choose from,” Brown said. Now comes the Saturday night rematch at Iowa State with more than just a little payback on Texas’ mind. “They did come in here and embarrass us,” Texas senior safety Blake Gideon said Monday. The No. 17 Longhorns (3-0) are in the middle a four-week stretch against teams that beat them last year. The revenge tour began Sept. 17 with a win at UCLA, followed by a bye week. And now it is the Cyclones in the Big 12 opener for both teams. Iowa State (3-0) is expecting a rested Texas team still angry about last season’s beatdown in Austin. “I know that’s one of the things on their mind. We came to their home field and we beat them,” Iowa State defensive back Ter’ran Benton said. “They want to come to our home field and beat us.” Texas senior linebacker Emmanuel Acho said the Longhorns want to have a “little something extra for these teams” that beat them last season. Losing to Iowa State proved to be breaking point for a fragile and fractured team that was a shadow of the squad that played for the national championship in 2009. After losing two in a row to UCLA and Oklahoma, Texas seemed to rebound with a huge win on the road at Nebraska. The Longhorns were feeling so confident there was talk of winning the rest of the games on the schedule and still challenging for the Big 12 crown. The Associated Press

File photo: Iowa State Daily Coach Christy Johnson-Lynch talks with the team during a time out on Sept. 3, 2010 at Ames High.

Editor’s note: This is part two of a threepart series on Christy Johnson-Lynch, who is now the winningest coach in ISU volleyball history. This series will go into detail about where she started, what kind of coach she has become and what she has done with the program at Iowa State.

By David.Merrill When coach Christy Johnson-Lynch arrived in Ames, the volleyball closet needed a new wardrobe. In the nine seasons before she was hired as head coach, Iowa State had gone a combined 59-212. It had not made the post season since 1995. While some coaches might shy away from a program that had been toiled in mediocrity for nearly a decade, she saw it as a chance for improvement. She also knew she wasn’t ready for the pressure of taking charge of an already established program. “This might sound strange, but I thought, because the program had struggled so much, it was a low risk opportunity,” Johnson-Lynch said. “I could go in and probably make them better. I think it’s more difficult, as a first time head coach to step into big shoes.” Johnson-Lynch lead the Cyclones to a 16-15 record in her first season. They went 9-11 in conference and didn’t make the post season. Still, having a winning record in volleyball was a tremendous step forward for the university.

After taking the job, Johnson-Lynch’s professional life was not the only thing to take a step in the right direction. After being in Ames for only a month, Johnson-Lynch became engaged to volunteer assistant coach Joe Lynch. The two had met through mutual friends, and Joe was the coach of the top club volleyball team in Milwaukee, Wisc. The two became close and began dating during Johnson-Lynch’s numerous recruiting trips to Milwaukee to scout his players. While having Joe as a constant support system has helped on a personal level, his volleyball knowledge is underrated. “He’s one of the best coaches I’ve ever seen,” Johnson-Lynch said. “It’s not just good for me personally. It’s good for the team to have one of the best trainers in the country working with them.” Johnson-Lynch went through a difficult process to start building the program back up. “It was incredibly difficult to get things going,” Johnson-Lynch said. “There were many, many 12- and 14-hour days. You put your heart and soul into every thought you have. “Those were a few long years when you’re doing everything you can to get that right player or think of the right way to train someone. That was exhausting.” Along with her husband, assistant coach Trudy Vande Berg joined Johnson-Lynch after

File photo: Rebekka Brown/Iowa State Daily Kristen Hahn celebrates a point with her team during the first set of the Iowa State - Arizona State match held Sept. 2 at Hilton Coliseum. Hahn achieved 22 digs during the game to help the Cyclones defeat the Sundevils 3-1.

working together on the staff at Wisconsin. Vande Berg helped train the middle blockers at Wisconsin before taking an assistant coaching job at Duke and reuniting with JohnsonLynch in Ames. After coaching with her for so many years, there is a tremendous amount of trust between the two. “She trusts that you’re going to get your job done,” Vande Berg said. “There’s no looking over your shoulder or anything. She’s also very even keeled. There’s never really any craziness. She’s really good at just leading even on our staff.”

The term ‘bad culture’ is something that often gets attached to programs who go through long periods of losing seasons. TCU football coach Gary Patterson has gotten credit for changing the ‘culture’ in Corpus Christi. James Franklin has been credited with doing the same thing with the Vanderbilt football program. For Johnson-Lynch, however, it was more about confidence than culture. “I don’t think it was a bad culture here necessarily,” Johnson-Lynch said. “There were some things

Cyclones begin conference play with Texas By Dan.Tracy After they were outscored 120-27 in a pair of losses against Utah and Oklahoma, the 2010 Iowa State team limped into Austin, Texas, for a week eight contest against Texas. The Cyclones, however, won the turnover battle and held off a fourthquarter comeback attempt as they upset the then No. 22 Longhorns, beating Texas for the first time in the eight meetings between the two teams. “We had just gotten our rear ends kicked for the past two weeks, and that was upsetting to us. That was surprising to us so to go back out after that and play a full 60 minute football game was very pleasing to our program at that point, and [the win was] something to build on and something we’ve tried to build on since then,” said coach Paul Rhoads at a press conference on Monday. Fast-forward to 2011 and the Cyclones are striding as they prepare to host the No. 17 Longhorns. Iowa State is 3-0 for the first time since 2005 and are fresh off a bye week during which starters such as quarterback Steele Jantz and left tackle Kelechi Osemele were able to heal

in preparation for the Big 12 opener against Texas. “We’re about as healthy as we can be right now,” Rhoads said. “To Johnson be 3-0 at the end of that very challenging schedule has certainly done a lot for our confidence.” Texas will travel to Ames coming off a bye week and with a 3-0 record. Reeves Rhoads sees a different Longhorns squad from last year, which could be due in large part to new coordinators on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. “There’s a different energy with their ball club and you can see it from snap through whistle in how they play,” Rhoads said. “They’re playing fast offensively there’s a lot of movement to what they’re doing, they’re playing with great enthusiasm on defense having some success with pressure and turnovers. Even without being in a stadium or hearing the sound, you can see the energy in their

football team.” Twenty-four players on the ISU roster hail from the state of Texas, none of which were offered a scholarship by Texas. Among the Texans on the ISU roster is Allen, Texas, native and starting junior cornerback Jeremy Reeves. Reeves, who had an interception in the third quarter of last year’s game, knows that revenge will be on the minds of the players wearing burnt orange on Saturday. “I know that’s one of the things on their minds that we came to their home field and we beat them and now they’re talking about it’s revenge now they want to come to our home field and beat us so I know it’s a big thing on their mind over there,” Reeves said. With a showdown of 3-0 teams set for Saturday at 6 p.m., another reachable goal for the Cyclones is the chance to become ranked among the top 25 teams in the country. The Cyclones, who haven’t been ranked in the top 25 since October 2005, received 21 votes in the Associated Press poll this week. “If we win this one I’m pretty sure we’ll be ranked so I’m just ready and I’m excited about it,” said ISU running back Shontrelle Johnson.

As sports fans, we’re hypercritical of sports movies. We watch, disect and analyze every nook and cranny. We can’t help it. We love sports, we love movies, and we want to love movies about sports. So when we see a bad one, it’s tossed out like a Ryan Leaf jersey or Akili Smith rookie card. But when we see a good one? We watch it over and over, find our favorite parts and let it permeate our lives. Seriously, how many times have you quoted “Remember the Titans”? “Moneyball,” adapted from a book by the same name, tells the story of Oakland Athletics’ general manager Billy Beane and his 2002 squad. We’ll spare you the monatony of describing the rest of the movie as it happened because this isn’t a movie review, per se, and we also aren’t Rotten Tomatoes. But what we do want to do is explain why we believe “Moneyball” is a great sports movie — and in our opinion a great movie overall, but that’s a debate for another day. So beware, there are spoilers throughout this column. So either skip those parts, or go see the movie (Hint: we suggest you see the movie.) To be a good sports movie, in our estimation, the movie must do a few things. First, it must evoke some certain emotion — empathy, sadness, awe, whatever — but it also has to be specific and it has to move the viewer in some way. Second, it must have elements that multiple groups of people can relate to. Sports movies shouldn’t just be for sports fans. Third, it has to get the sports stuff right. This should be obvious, but it clearly isn’t in many sports movies. Movies like “Rudy,” “Hoosiers,” “Miracle,” “Field of Dreams,” “The Natural,” “Friday Night Lights” and “Remember the Titans” — to name a few of the all-time greats (we know we’ve left some out) — all do this and do this brilliantly. We quote these movies. We re-watch these movies. We cry, laugh, celebrate and sometimes even grieve (re: the Gerry Bertier/Julius Campbell scene after Gerry’s accident) during these movies. We get chills and go completely silent during these movies. “Moneyball” has these moments. We get a rare behind-the-scenes view of what a Major League Baseball general manager does dayin and day-out. Granted, we’re sure some Hollywood liberties were taken — and acknowledge we are not the movie critics to point these out specifically — but we get the feeling that what we’re seeing is very close, if not accurate. When Scott Hatteburg hits the home run against the Kansas City Royals to clinch the 20-game win streak — longest in American League history — the chills trickle down your spine. In the theater, when the home run was first hit, the audio in the movie briefly goes silent, and the theater in which we watched the movie was as quiet as any of us have experienced. You can’t fake those moments. And you can’t help but cheer for Beane and the A’s, even though you’re a sports fan and already know the ending. Making us want to watch a movie when we know how the team does is obviously a marker of a great movie. The movie also became a story more of Beane and his mission to make something out of nothing (actually $30 million, but that’s not the point). Non-sports fans could cheer for Beane the person, not Beane the GM. In our estimation, “Moneyball” ranks with the movies we already mentioned. And it‘s one that will live forever.

Johnson-Lynch more than a coach By Dean.Berhow-Goll

Whether it’s showing someone how to parallel park or how to handle a match point in the fifth set of a volleyball match, teaching is easier if someone has been there before. There’s no doubt that the new leader in alltime wins as an ISU volleyball coach, Christy Johnson-Lynch, has that experience. “In one-on-one meetings in the past when I was having confidence issues, she definitely could relate to me because she has been through a lot of pressure from playing at Nebraska, and she definitely has helped me with that aspect of my game,” said senior defensive specialist Caitlin Mahoney. Johnson-Lynch’s experience in the NCAA Tournament goes back to her collegiate playing career at Nebraska, where she earned AllAmerica honors for the Huskers in 1994 and 1995. Johnson-Lynch was the starting setter on the 1995 the team that won Nebraska’s first NCAA championship. The Huskers made four NCAA tournament appearances and won three Big Eight titles during Johnson-Lynch’s time at the school. As an upper classmen in her junior and senior campaigns in Lincoln, Johnson-Lynch led Nebraska to a 63-2 mark, the second-best winning percentage of any setter in NU history. The Huskers were an unblemished 24-0 in Big Eight play over that time period and won two Big Eight crowns. Johnson-Lynch was also named to the 1995 NCAA Championship All-Tournament team, the 1994 and 1995 NCAA Regional AllTournament team and the 1994 and 1995 Big Eight Conference All-Tournament teams. She also has international experience as a member of the 1989 U.S. Junior National team and as a member of the 1993 U.S. National “B” Team. Junior middle blocker Jaime Straube mentioned that her favorite quality of JohnsonLynch’s is that she is so approachable. “For me to be able to go into a meeting and talk to her about everything from volleyball to

>>COACH.p6 confidence-wise that we needed to work on. When I got here, there were a lot of hardworking midwest girls that loved the game of volleyball and really worked hard at it.” Johnson-Lynch and her staff went to work and recruited aggressively to fill holes and also brought in some transfers that helped out the program. She started with the setter in middle back Erin Boeve. Boeve’s game reached a new level under JohnsonLynch. Boeve was an All-Big 12 selection twice during her career at Iowa State. She was also an AVCA All-American honorable mention. She finished with more than 1,000 blocks and 590 total kills.

school just really helps me be able to relate to her,” Straube said. Another thing that Johnson-Lynch has demonstrated the ability to do in her short sixyear career is develop players. In her handful of seasons at Iowa State, she has developed four All-Americans. Under Johnson-Lynch’s teaching, Kaylee Manns, Ashley Mass, Victoria Henson and Jaime Straube have all earned All-America honors including First-Team All-America for Mass and Henson, who are the only players in ISU history to receive those honors. Manns played as a setter, which is JohnsonLynch’s natural position, and flourished undoubtedly. Manns became the first player in Big 12 history to record 5,500 assists, 1,000 digs, 300 kills and 300 blocks in her career at Iowa State. Many upperclassmen said that JohnsonLynch has the ability to teach on different levels. “She not only works with players on technical things, but she also works with us on the mental aspect of the game,” Mahoney said. “Now as a senior she helps with situational things, rather than when I was a sophomore and junior where she would really help me with my passing and defense.” Johnson-Lynch adjusts her coaching style for upperclassmen, like Mahoney, but also can adjust to coach the underclassmen. That adjustment is key to bringing up young players. “She’s awesome at prying into your ability and really focusing on A) what you need to work on, and B) your strengths and how to play off your strengths,” said freshman setter Taylor Goetz. “She’s a coach that everyone has so much respect for since she’s been there and been in our shoes before, I think that helps out so much.” With Johnson-Lynch having started as a setter on Nebraska’s first national title team, it is easy for her to relate to players in dealing with high-pressure situations. “Having a coach that has played at that high of a level, she knows situations and knows what it’s like to be a player,” said senior middle blocker Debbie Stadick. “Just from being an allaround player she’s got it all.”

Joe Lynch knew there was a lot of talent among the players they had when they arrived in Ames. The players were used to losing, however, so the atmosphere needed to be changed. “I think the most difficult thing was creating a winning atmosphere,” Joe Lynch said. “We just needed to push the players the right way and get them to do the things we wanted them to do.” Outside her own staff, Johnson-Lynch looked to other ISU coaches for models of success when she first got here. This included ISU women’s basketball coach Bill Fennelly. Fennelly has put together one of the more successful women’s basketball programs in the country. His teams are

perennial contenders in the Big 12 and make the NCAA tournament on a regular basis. “I think he’s been a tremendous leader,” JohnsonLynch said. “I really admire his passion and the way he does his job. The crowd and the fan base he has built has been great to see. He’s given me some great advice over the years.” Johnson-Lynch’s teams advanced farther in post season play each year within her first three years. They finished in the top five in the conference in those three years. By the end of her third season, Johnson-Lynch finally began to feel comfortable and confident. Those traits carried through to her players and the program continued to rise.

File photo: Tim Reuter/Iowa State Daily Infielder Tori Torrescano is greeted by high-fives and hugs after her game-winning home run in the seventh inning in the game against Drake on April 14.

Contrasting days for Iowa State, lose to Drake following big wins By Zach.Gourley DES MOINES — It was a tale of two days for the ISU softball team at the Iowa Big 4 Tournament in Des Moines this weekend. The Cyclones beat Northern Iowa, 6-2, in their first game, followed shortly Gemeinhardt -Cesler by a convincing 9-1 rout of Iowa on Saturday. However, the Cyclones fell in their Sunday game against Drake, 9-0. “We played really well today. I thought that our pitchers both threw very well,” said ISU coach Stacy Gemeinhardt-Cesler on Saturday. “Obviously, when you score nine runs and six runs, your offense did it’s job.” Junior pitcher Tori Torrescano got the start against the Panthers, giving up just two runs on five hits in six innings of work. Torrescano worked to get ahead in count with her arsenal of off-speed pitches, striking out eight Panther batters on the day. The Cyclones got another quality pitching start against the Hawkeyes as senior Lauren Kennewell threw all five innings in a 9-1 runrule victory. Kennwell, who gave up just one run on four hits, forced Hawkeye hitters into a high number of ground balls while the infield held up well behind her. “I was just trying to keep the ball low and hit my locations,” Kennewell said. “I knew that Iowa is a really good hitting team and I had to make good pitches. Their whole lineup, one through nine can hit the ball.” Against Iowa, the Cyclone offense exploded behind a Torrescano grand slam in the bottom of the fourth and an Evan Folks two-run home run the very next inning. On Sunday, it was an entirely different story for the Cyclones when they faced Drake. Freshman pitcher Samantha Claman had a difficult collegiate debut, giving up seven runs off six hits, before being replaced at the mound by Torrescano early in the second inning. “[Claman] came out and she hasn’t ever thrown a Division I game and I think that we

didn’t help her at all,” Gemeinhardt-Cesler said. “In the infield, we had a missed play at third and dropped a ball at first.” Offensively, the Cyclones struggled with Drake pitchers Jordan Gronewold and Rebekah Schmidt, mustering just two hits in Sunday’s 9-0 loss. “I’s pretty clear that we can be great or we can not play well at all and I think it’s good to have both,” Gemeinhardt-Cesler said. There’s excitement and hope about what can be, and at the same time a consciousness that if we don’t always work to get better, our fate is right behind us.” The Cyclones will be back in action at home for a double-header against Kirkwood this Sunday starting at 2 p.m.

Geoffroy holds last convocation Address focuses on ISU’s needs for the future By Paige.Godden “We’re coming off a year that saw significant advancements in every area except state funding,” Iowa State University President Gregory Geoffroy said at his final convocation speech. Geoffroy didn’t lay out a plan for next year, as he usually does at convocation, because he said he wants to let the new president create his own schedule. Geoffroy said he also didn’t want to influence the results of the Board of Regents meeting tomorrow, so instead, he gave a few areas of interest Iowa State needs to keep working on in the future. He said Iowa State can’t let fundraising slip. Geoffroy said last year Iowa State passed its private fundrais-

ing goal by more than $67 million, had 118,000 donors, 37,000 of which were first time donors. The University created 123 endowed faculty positions and 715 new scholarships. University

The program changed throughout the ‘70s. She said one of the changes came through the addition of the journalism and political science departments, which brought the opportunity to teach how women were portrayed in the media and politics. In 1980 Galyon left her position as chair, and Kathy Hickok took the position in 1984. Hickok said it was one of three jobs in the whole country that was advertised concerning women’s studies and English that year. It took her six years to get tenured through the English department after she arrived. “You cannot get tenured at [the women’s studies] program. They’ve never been willing to change that, or to make the program a department,” Hickok said. She thinks part of the reasoning for that is from the history of the institution. “It was a defensive and anxious response to the feminist movement. They didn’t want to give us too much power to prevent a political uprising ... It was supposed to be an educational facility,” Hickok said. Both women agreed that

states, “[The aforementioned] curricula reflect an acknowledgement by the universities that a traditional college education has been selective, ignoring consideration from many people and their contributions.” The proposal suggests that women’s studies programs had been created around the world because women and men have demanded to learn more about what women are like. Such topics of woide interest have been the contributions women have made, how a feminist perspective might solve some of the problems facing humanity, and how students want to be better prepared to take an active role in changing the status of women in our society. The program started off with only one course, and Galyon said that course was not feminist in its teaching style. A man taught the course, and he brought in women in power to tell students their stories. Galyon said for a while it was necessary to remind other departments the program existed.


fundraising impacted 25 buildings. The student call center received 13 million phone calls. Geoffroy said the University needs to focus on state funding as well.

a large reason the program was expanded was because of the support of then-President Robert Parks. They said he was the first real humanist president at Iowa State, and he was interested in the feminist movement. Galyon said when she returned as chair of the program in the ‘90s, the program had a major. She furthered to say Provost Elizabeth Hoffman, who was serving as dean of liberal arts and sciences, helped her immensely. “I never asked her for something she didn’t give me,” Galyon said. Hickok said the program was always thinking as a department. “We started thinking if we were a department, what would we do? It turns out it wasn’t a bad thing.” Galyon said she still has concerns about getting faculty tenured and protection for probationary periods. The meeting, however, ended on a positive note from Hickok. Referring to the creators of the proposal for the program, she said, “We have fulfilled everything these people could have imagined.”

>>TESTS.p1 any other type of schedule is a key aspect in keeping up organization.

Study techniques: ƒƒ Figure out what studying technique is right for you. It could be an outline, flash cards, study guide, or just going through the book. ƒƒ Utilize your resources- tutoring is there for students who need that one on one learning experience, and for those that just need a little help. ƒƒ Find the right place to study- it could be the library, a special spot near Campanile, or simply your dorm.

What to expect: ƒƒ Read directions carefully- you don’t want to be looking back on your test wishing you had read that question right. ƒƒ Be on time- the teacher will start without you. ƒƒ Review beforehand- that last minute review is the refresher most students need. ƒƒ Be confident- know what to expect on the test such as true/ false, multiple choice, or especially if there is an essay.

Now that you have these tips, all there’s left to do is follow them. Test preparation can be demonstrated in a variety of ways, the key is finding the most effective strategy for you.

“I remember the first day I started in July 2001, when someone first whispered in my ear state funding is in trouble,” Geoffroy said. He said state funding is now at the same level as it was in 1996. Geoffroy also warned of cuts that could be coming from the federal level. Geoffroy said hopefully the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences position will be filled this fall and the Dean of Students position will be filled before the end of spring semester. Geoffroy said projects that need to be completed are the new recreation facility, Troxell Hall, and two more buildings and the atrium that will be added on near Hach Hall. “I do want everyone here to know how much I’ve enjoyed my service as president and how proud I am,” Geoffroy said. “The future of Iowa State is very, very bright because of the leadership on campus and two great presidential candidates.”

Calendar recognizes leading women By Katelynn.McCollough In 2007 the very first Women Impacting ISU Calendar was released. Since that time, 60 women, being students, faculty or staff, have been honored for the difference they make on the Iowa State campus. “Our goal is to recognize 12 women each year for their leadership on campus and to educate and inform the entire campus and community on the various ways female students, faculty and staff are making a positive difference in their lives,” said Dr. Dianne Bystrom, director of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics. The Chapman Catt Center is currently accepting nominations for the 12 women who will be chosen for the 2012 calendar. The nominating process begins with an online form that can be found on the Catt Center homepage. The nominator will also need to write a letter of support as well as one to two additional support letters from someone other than the nominator. All nominations are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30. “When you are nominating someone, don’t just give a job description. Tell us what they have done to go above and beyond their job; focus on what they’re doing on campus,” said Julie Snyder-Yuly, assistant director of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center. A committee, the size of which is based off the number of nominations received, selects the 12 women. According to Snyder-Yuly, the selection process will take around two weeks, and 1,500 copies of the calendar will be distributed during the month of January. “I think it’s important to nominate students and recognize their service,” said Lora-Leigh Chrystal, a program coordinator for the Program for Women in Science and Engineering. Chrystal has nominated students for the calendar for several years, and she was selected as one of the 12 women honored on the 2011 calendar. “Being recognized by my peers and by my students was phenomenal ... it was very special.” While nominating, Chrystal says she tries “to look for students who are committed to something and make a change. They represented that change.” Chandra Peterson, senior in political science and philosophy, was also selected to appear on the calendar in 2011. “It was an amazing opportunity because there really are so many women on campus doing amazing things.” Peterson, who is prominent in GSB and the Campustown Action Association, hopes to see an increase in demand for copies of the calendar around campus. She also hopes that people continue to nominate. “There are times when you’re laying on the floor wondering why you’re doing all of it. This [calendar] is encouragement to pick yourself up off the living room floor and keep going.” Snyder-Yuly stated that a mix of female students, staff and faculty will be selected for the 2012 calendar. She would “love to see a lot of applicants.” All nomination materials and other information pertaining to the Women Impacting ISU Calendars can be found on the Carrie Chapman Catt Center homepage on the ISU website. There, you can also view calendars from previous years.

Who says freshmen can’t do it? Not the judges of Project Runway that’s for sure. Four freshmen, Abby Beuse, Hayley Hays, Taylor Roberson and Mackenzie McArthur, all in apparel, merchandising and design, stole the show Sunday evening with their “Mad Hatter” design. The team, Young, Broke and Fabulous, along with 13 other teams, competed in the annual Project Runway at the Memorial Union. Following right behind in the top five, were teams Top Notch, So Amazing, Glam Girls and Fashionistas. Guest judge Anthony Williams from Project Runway season 7 helped judge the garments along side Mary Damhorst, AESHM professor. Garments were judged on creativity, craftsmanship and relation to the overall theme. The theme of the competition was emailed out to each team the evening before the competition. This is the seventh annual Project Runway hosted by the Student Union Board, but the forth year with a celebrity guest judge. “We went through several different theme ideas on Saturday night before we decided,” team member McArthur said. “We actually decided on the theme before seeing the fabric, which was challenging,” Hays added. Students were allowed to purchase up to $30 of fabric to use in addition to materials provided, but the final garment must be at least 50 percent of the provided materials. Young, Broke and Fabulous chose to use only provided materials, which ended up a wise decision as many teams were not considered for the

said. “They all come together in the end; it makes me proud.” To construct their garments, teams were given three sewing machines, thread, needles, fabric glue, tape measures and scissors. Teams were allowed to bring other scrap materials and were allowed to use patterns to construct their designs. One member of each team was required to model the garment in the fashion show at the end. A n n a Mackin, junior in apparel, merchandising and design, was a member of one of the larger teams with six people, Christopher and the Doves. “We have a lot of classes together, so we know each others’ strengths,” Mackin said. The team used their strengths as a strategy: Not every member sewed, they divided the work evenly. It was that same team work and dedication that helped carry Young, Broke and Fabulous to the top. The team said they plan to participate in the competition again next year. “It was really fun,” Hays said. “I’m glad we decided to go through with it.”

Black Friday came early this year with the release of the Missoni for Target line on Sept. 13. Selling the line for nearly a fraction of the price, eager fashionistas across the nation lined up early outside Target doors anticipating this collaboration. It came as no surprise this line was going to be a hit but was never expected to last a couple of days. The craze of the collection not only led to Target’s whirlwind of dedicated shoppers, but also led to the company’s website to take an even bigger hit. Due to an overwhelming amount of traffic to that day, the website crashed. The New York Times reported the Missoni items became available at 6 a.m. and the web page crashed around 9 a.m. It continued to be down until 11 a.m. the following day. Apologizing sincerely for the inconvenience to fashion gurus and Target shoppers alike, Target tried their hardest during this time to get the website back

up and running. Target has done many other collaborations with big name designers such as Zac Posen and Calypso, but never before has it been this popular. Ames was no exception to the Missoni madness. Shoppers went crazy in the line as well and cleared the store out within the first day of its release. According to a Target associate, people were eager to show

up earlier in the day, filling their carts full with merchandise, making sure they were not missing out on the opportunity to get their fill of Missoni items. Customers were extremely disappointed to find out that showing up at noon was just a little too late. According to the same Target associate, the majority of the line was gone halfway through the first day

it was being sold. She said Target sales skyrocketed from the extreme success, especially when compared with last year. Due to Ames floods last summer, Target sales took a huge hit. The Missoni for Target line put sales at an all time high which really made up for last year being down in revenue. Students were especially crazed over the collection and made sure they were there to get their share. Emily Ortiz, junior in apparel, merchandising and design and journalism and mass communication, shared her experience at Target that day. “I went to Target around 9:30 a.m., and it had already looked like some serious shoppers had been through. There was a decent amount of stuff, but very limited sizes in everything.” Ortiz said she had seen some intense shoppers buying one of everything for Christmas gifts and relatives. “I can’t believe people in Ames, Iowa, of all places had gotten a hold of all the stuff so early.”
