Obama’s first year
Jordan seeks to challenge Donnelly
Students have mixed feelings about Obama’s first year as President.
By TERRIE PHILLIPS Staff Writer
By KRYSTAL VIVIAN Staff Writer
The past year has been full of mixed feelings for President Obama, and IU South Bend students can understand why. The economy and healthcare have been at the top of the nearly new President’s agenda, but many students feel like they haven’t been handled properly. “I voted for him last year, and I feel it was a mistake because I don’t think he’s done anything to improve our economy,” said senior Eric Bascom. “He wanted to cut spending, and he added a trillion dollars to deficit with his stimulus packages and by sending $300 billion to Haiti.” Some students blamed Congress for the healthcare bill not being passed, others blamed the American public. Freshman Moshe Lerman said that if the American people wanted the policies President Obama has been trying to put in place, especially healthcare, it would have gone through already. However, graduate student Anne Andere feels that he focused too much on the healthcare bill. see OBAMA/5

Healthcare, national security and the bad economy are only some of the issues the next person to take Indiana’s second congressional district seat will be facing. Republican Jack Jordan, associate faculty in the IU South Bend School of business and economics, announced his candidacy on Jan. 16 at Bremen Castings Inc. during his kickoff event. “It’s better to have two voices instead of one,” said Jordan, “Jackie provides them with an aspiring political profile.” Jordan graduated from Purdue University in 1988 with a Master of Science in Management (M.S.M). Jordan then began a career at Eli Lilly until 2004. He has also obtained a Certificate in Executive Management from Notre Dame. In 2006 Jordan began teaching for IUSB as well as served on the Board of Trustees for Bremen Public Schools. If Jordan gets elected he wants to change a few things including policies and spending. He also wants to focus on the job market. “[I want to] stop many of the misguided policies,” said Jordan, “Stop all the spending that is out of control.” Jordan also wants to focus on protecting America. “We have brutal and ruthless enemies, i.e. terrorists,” said Jorsee JORDAN/5

The IUSB Preface
Eating healthy improves academics By JEFF TATAY Staff Writer
Maintaining a physical lifestyle and getting the right amount of sleep is important to academic success, but many students ignore the importance of maintaining a healthy diet. “The biggest issue we see here at the Health and Wellness Center is students skipping breakfast and eating a lot of junk food,” said Laura Hieronymus, nurse practitioner of the IU South Bend Health and Wellness Center. “These students are passing out in class and at the fitness center.” Although students often become preoccupied with studies, work, family and extracurricular activities, it is important to remember that maintaining a healthy diet is a number one priority for optimum health and academic performance.
“Three meals a day is the gold standard,” said Nutrition for Health professor, Maureen Jamieson. “Snacks may be necessary in between depending on activity.” Selecting the right types of food is also important. There are many healthy foods available on campus and many foods that should be avoided. “Students should avoid the Walking Taco,” said Hieronymus. “It’s a heart attack in a sack.” Although students should avoid sitting or even jogging with a “Walking Taco,” The Grille and the Courtside Café have many healthy options that will get them through the day and keep them focused in the classroom. “Yogurt, string cheese, salads, turkey burgers, milk and oatmeal are all healthy food that can be found at The Grille or Courtside Café,” said Hieronymus. Eating healthy food is a must,
but, sometimes, academic performance calls for an extra boost of mental acuity and energy. “There is a huge misconception that coffee and caffeine are bad for you,” said Hieronymus. “Coffee, caffeine and tea can be good if used in moderation. It heightens your alertness and it keeps you awake. People who drink five or more cups of coffee a day have a lower risk of stroke, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.” Students who are concerned about their dietary or general health and/or have questions and/ or problems concerning their health can make an appointment to visit nurse practitioner Laura Hieronymus at the IUSB Health and Wellness Center. For more information on health visit the IUSB Health and Wellness website at www.iusb.edu/~iusbwell/.
SGA in the spotlight By KRYSTAL VIVIAN Staff Writer
Name: Joel Bazzell Age: 21 Year: 4 yrs., junior Major: Mass Communications – Public Relations and Political Science Minor: Business After IUSB: “I’m looking at a couple of schools in Washington D.C., New York, and University of California – Berkeley.” Role in SGA: Senator What that means: “It means you’re somebody who is a student leader. I’m always connected to the SGA. I’m a two-way communication between students and administration. We make it a point to connect with active students on campus. My main mission is to get people involved on campus.” Committees in the SGA: “Internally, I’m the chair of the special events committee. Externally, I’m on the weekly events committee. We talk about what’s going on campus every week. I’m on the academic affairs committee. It’s very important because we hear about academic issues such as grade changes and academic misconducts. I’m also on the non-tenure track faculty committee, it deals with university policies regarding professors not on the tenure track.”
Building a sense of community with the Natatorium By REBECCA GIBSON Staff Writer
Speaking about the South Bend Natatorium, the new home for the IU South Bend based Civil Rights Heritage Center, IU South Bend professor Kevin James sees the events leading up to the grand opening in May to be a time to focus on how all parts of peoples’ lives can unite them. James is especially delighted to be in discussion with IVY Tech on a collaborative project. “IVY Tech has an Oral Interpretation theatre chorus, and they would like to use some of the oral histories now housed at the Natatorium,” said James. “The students would read and listen to the interviews, and then perform them as a group in April.” This creative use of the data available through the Center, is only one way in which James wants to see the Natatorium help the community. “The Center will be holding many programs, not necessarily to do with African-American history,” said James. His vision for the Center is a place where common issues such as labor and gender, can cross and come together with societal based
issues such as race or ethnicity and civil rights for all groups. In addition to community programs, the Natatorium and the Center will be sponsoring many events at IUSB in the coming months. The next one is Saturday Feb. 27, when Marvin Curtis, Dean of the Raclin School of the Arts, will host “Lift Every Voice,” a concert featuring choral pieces by African-American composers. Then in early March there will be a talk and a reception at the Natatorium titled, “Black and Green is Beautiful,” focusing on AfricanAmerican contributions to causes impacting the environment. This event is co-sponsored by the IUSB Center for a Sustainable Future. Also, at the beginning of April, IUSB will play host to world renowned poet and activist Nikki Giovanni. Giovanni, the “Princess of Black poetry,” has written many books, including her latest, a children’s book on Rosa Parks, won several awards, and been awarded over 25 honorary degrees. Her powerful words show the world the truth from her point of view, and she has had a species of bat named after her. For those wishing to hear her see NATATORIUM/8
Guillaume, Calvin receive drum major awards By TIMOTHY DANN-BARRICK Staff Writer
Years ago, speaking at a small Baptist church in Atlanta, Ga. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called on the congregation to be “drum majors for peace, equality and justice.” The power of those words inspired many to serve their communities. On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Jan. 18, two IU South Bend professors received Drum Major awards for their community GUILLAUME service.

Campus campaign kicks off By TERRIE PHILLIPS Staff Writer
The annual campus campaign is set to begin Feb. 15 and this is the first year which the drive is being extended to students. “The campus campaign is a way for faculty, staff and students to give back to the university,” said Dina Harris, director of development, public affairs, and university advancement and co-chair of the campaign, “100% of the donation, as with every donation we receive, stays on campus.” “It’s very powerful to be able to go out into the community,” said Harris, “and say our faculty, and staff and students so believe in this university that they give it this high rate.” Every year the faculty and staff increase their donations by at least 10%. Last year participation on campus by faculty and staff was 29% and raised $45,194. “As we spend many hours each week on campus, we learn of specific activities and needs,” said Dr. David Vollrath, professor of management in the school of business and economics and co-chair of the campaign, in an email interview. “Among all the great things that happen on this campus, that strike a chord with us individually.” “This annual campaign asks us to make a gift of “any amount to any account” that we feel deserves our support,” said Vollrath.
The annual Campus Campaign fund has increased every year.
The campus campaign isn’t limited only to current faculty and staff. The campaign also reaches out to retired faculty such as emeritus history professor Patrick Furlong to add a personal touch the forms sent out to retired faculty. “For most people I think it helps,” said Furlong. “It’s certainly not a sure fire fundraising gimmick.” “In a large campaign it’s hard to be personal,” said Furlong. “In this case I’m adding a personal note to a standard letter.” The campaign was started five years ago and was developed by Vollrath and the previous Director of Development, Jan Halperin. “I read about a corporate philanthropy program in which the business matched donations made by its employees to whichever charity individual employees chose,” said Vollrath. “According to the author of the article, the element of personal choice was what
made the program so successful.” Every year the goal of the campaign is to raise at least 10% more than they did the year before, as well as increase participation. “Each year, we have surpassed that goal, and we hope that 2010 will be no exception,” said Vollrath. “Our goal for this year is $49, 713.” There are over 200 funds that can be contributed to and people can donate as little or as much as they want. “We have been really impressed with the employee participation at IU-East, where 92% of employees contributed last year,” said Vollrath. “So, we’re encouraging everyone at IU South Bend to give any amount to any account” that they choose.” Any questions about the campaign, how to donate or to get a gift form contact Dina Harris at 574-520-4131 or diharris@iusb. edu.
Tutoring on the rise BY ERIKA BLUME Staff Writer
Writing, math, and language. All of these things are part of everyday life for college students. But sometimes, these subjects don’t come easily for everyone. According to National Public Radio, tutoring is a four billion dollar business and is on the rise nation-wide. Most public and private schools now offer tutoring to students. For anyone finding a subject difficult, IU South Bend has tutors to help. At the writing center, students not only get one on one attention from the staff, but also from the website which has 35 different podcasts with a variety of topics. Each podcast is two minutes long and is downloadable so students can listen to them on their way to
class. Joanne Detlef is the director of the writing center. “We are a major support system for foreign exchange students learning English,” said Detlef. The writing center, located in the Administration building, gets a variety of students in on a daily basis. “We even get grad students working on their thesis,” she said. The writing center doesn’t just help students with writing papers for class. They also help with writing resumes or job applications. The math department also has a tutoring center in Northside room 310. “We tutor students from all 0 to 100 level math courses and also some 200 math courses,” said director Yu Song. It currently has 25 tutors, which is the record high. They can add more tutors, however space limitation is a big
problem. The math tutoring center employs mostly math and science majors although some of the employees are business majors. The rise of tutoring is, overall, a trend university wide. “The tutoring demand is on the rise, a result of promotions of the center by our instructors and academic advisers,” said Song. The center has some times that are busier than others. “The busiest times probably would be between 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.,” said Song. Most professors are now recommending the centers to students. Most centers are open seven days a week and can be scheduled by appointment. For more information on times or on the centers visit the individual websites from the IUSB website.

RELAY offers student mentoring opportunity By KENDRA HORSMAN Staff Writer
A new peer-mentoring program on campus called RELAY gives students the opportunity to help others. RELAY was designed to help minorities, first generation college students, and 21st Century Scholar’s transition into college life. “We are a sort of guide and we help them use OnCourse, OneStart, apply for financial aid, get textbooks at reasonable prices online, and stay ahead in class,” said senior Matt Henry. “The mentors use past experiences to help them learn and hopefully not make the same mistakes,” said Jonathan Jones, program coordinator. The program seeks to help students that don’t have the support or necessary tools at home. Not only does the program help students with the more technical aspects with school, it provides asocial atmosphere as well.
“Seeing the students meeting new people and forming friendships in their Relay group is very satisfactory,” said junior Karen Gonzalez. “We needed a program that bridged [the] gap for first year students that also maintained contact over time”, said Jones. The program is very flexible. It has four groups that meet twice a month in the club room in the Student Activities Center. In the future RELAY hopes to expand their program. The program hopes to get more funding to take it to the next level. There are plans to take trips to get off campus to give the students even more experiences. However, because IUSB is a commuter school there are more obstacles. “All the mentors and mentees involved are really excited about the direction its heading,” said Henry. If you would like more information about the program contact Jonathan Jones at jonesjoc@iusb. edu.

dan. Jordan would like to see litigation and liability reformed. He would like to open the market for health insurance. Currently people can not buy health insurance across the state line. Jordan believes by opening the market it will cause insurance companies to be more competitive. He also believes it will make them be more creative in covering individuals that are currently unable to get coverage. “There is a lot about the healthcare system that is right,” said Jordan. He also acknowledged “there are areas that need to be improved.” Jordan was inspired to run at the end of last spring’s semester. “Usually at the end of the semester I’m really excited because students are going to graduate,”
said Jordan, “There was just a heaviness in my heart because they were going out into an environment with less jobs.” It was his 16 year-old son that said to him, “ ‘You know what dad? You’re not a politician. Maybe it’s time for someone like you to take a risk.’ ” “I’m not a politician,” said Jordan, “but I am a person with extensive real world experience.” Jordan and his wife spend time every year volunteering in Romania. They work with the Evergreen Foundation, a Christian not-for-profit organization that focuses on the children in Romania, according to their website. “The orphan situation [in Romania] just breaks my heart,” said Jordan. Jordan hopes to continue to go to Romania at least one time per year if elected.
One year not enough to judge president OBAMA from page 1
“Healthcare took the bulk of time, and other things weren’t touched on as much,” Andere said. Even still, other students still favor the President and believe that the next three years will prove that he is capable of keeping many of his promises. “I think he’s making a lot of good strides, a lot of good changes, and I think more changes than what have been happening in the past,” said junior Angie Johnson.
Many students agreed that a year was not enough for Obama to come through on many of the promises he campaigned for. “It’s just his first year, he’s got four. He can either do a lot of good or a lot of damage,” said senior John Carington. Many students agree that the next three years will be more detrimental than the first one. “He’s done a good job of trying to go in and straighten out a few
things, but I think the expectations are a little bit too high right now,” said Mitchell Bianley, freshman. And then there are the students who remain realistic about Obama’s first year as president, instead of feeling absolutely one way or another. “Things could be better, but things could also be much, much worse,” said junior Christie Pierce.

Michiana Monologues brings awareness to area By DANI MOLNAR Staff Writer
A woman must admit her true sexuality to her husband. Another realizes she is an outsider in her couples’ group of friends. Another is raped by her first love. These are just a few of the stories recounted by women during the Michiana Monologues this year. Michiana Monologues is a production put on for the past three years by V-club. The cast consists of 28 members who read stories pulled out of a total of nearly 70 submissions. It uses experiences of local women to bring awareness and donations into local women’s help
organizations. The stories are submitted anonymously and read by actors onstage. Cassandra Wynn has been involved in Michiana Monologues for two years. She is an actor in the show and said the show changes lives. “[It] really gives women a chance to be heard, in a way that they never have been before,” Wynn said. “This could be the first time the woman has ever really told her story.” Having it read anonymously makes it real to the women, according to Wynn. According to Zorina Jerome, who is in charge of the program, the show encourages women to talk about problems that they usually keep to themselves.
“There are many issues that I was dealing with myself, and hearing the stories make you realize that you are not alone and it’s [okay] to feel a certain way,” Wynn said. There are three parts to Michiana Monologues, the cast, the silent auction, and the workshop. The workshop is where women write their stories or find inspiration to write. The cast then reads the stories and no cast members are allowed to read their own stories. The final part, the silent auction, takes place during the show with proceeds for the event and the auction going to care centers in the area. According to Wynn the four beneficiaries this year are YWCA, Saint Margret’s House, a daycare center, SOS Madison Center and
Growing trend of viral networking on Facebook By REBECCA GIBSON Staff Writer
How many causes have you been asked to join today? If you are on Facebook, MySpace, or even a professional social networking site like linkedin, the answer may be more than a few. However, according to several IU South Bend students, many people will join the causes that their friends suggest, and then forget about them. “I think that it is a misrepresentation of what people like,” said Secondary Education major Michael Duttlinger. “Many times they join a group because they get invited by a friend. I doubt that many people care about some of these causes and are only joining because it seems like the popular thing to do.” Senior Lecturer in Communications, Alec Hosterman, agrees. “It’s a fad. People will fan and then never check the pages again,” said Hosterman. “They need a reason to check, the page needs to be highly interactive and to have a good sense of communication between the fan and the cause.” IUSB senior in political science, Caitlin Worm uses the causes to personalize her profile. “Out of the 200-some groups that I am in, I only use 2 or 3 regularly to obtain information,”
said Worm. “If you look at my formation out of a group on Faceprofile, you will see I am a ’fan’ of book.” anything ranging Also, there from margaritas are some groups to Oscar Romero and pages that to the Avenue Bipeople find incycle Station near credibly offencampus.” sive, such as the “F*** the Troops” Hosterman group which also emphasized has inspired the the prevalence of group, “Let’s get predatory pages. ‘F*** the Troops’ “There will kicked off of always be people —Alec Hosterman Facebook.” who take advan- Senior Lecturer in Communications “I just got intage of the fans, vited to join a and pages should ’We demand a be subject to rig‘bitch slap that ho’ button‘ group. orous scrutiny,” said Hosterman.

This year is one of the more difficult. “This is the first year we’re actually doing more than one show,” Jerome said. One will be at IU South Bend, one at Goshen College and one at the Historic Roosevelt Center in Elkhart. Aside from the silent auction, there will be T-shirt sales and button-making to bring in more money for the beneficiaries. “The show is about the women,” Jerome said. “These stories need to be heard outside of the care centers.”

Reno 911 star Kyle Dunnigan to peform Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. in NS 158 By DANIELLE MOLNAR Staff Writer
The Truckee River Killer is back and coming to IU South Bend courtesy of Titan Productions. Kyle Dunnigan, who played Craig Pullin (Trudy Wiegel’s boyfriend who was executed) on the first three seasons of Reno 911 is a stand-up comedian and has performed in many locations. “His comedy routine is phenomenal,” Angela Santos, president of Titan Productions, said. Aside from his time on Reno 911, Dunnigan has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He has also been on the practical joke reality show, Howie Do It and writes for Comedy Central Presents. He will be at NS158 on Feb 16 at 8 pm. Titan Productions has put a lot of effort into this show and productions coming up this semester. Not only do they have the nationally renowned comedian Dunnigan coming, but with Titan Love, speed dating, and even a music festival, Titan Productions is trying to make the most out of this semester. On Thursday Feb 11 Titan Productions will be hosting Titan Love. Based on the MTV show “Singled Out,” the show takes can-
didates through a series of tasks to determine who is most compatible with the main character. After the show, 20 men and women will be allowed to participate in a speed dating night. “I think it will be a really fun time,” Santos said. Titan Productions hopes to create more traditions for the university. They also want to do more big activities with students. This year, Titan Productions is hosting an outdoor music festival in Student Housing, for example. The show will feature nationally recognized acts such as Andrew Belle, Rudy Currence, Sonos, and Natalie Stovall. “It’s going to be very diverse,” Santos said. The acts range from country to hip-hop with one act see TITANPRO/8

Food fun in February By Kristine Bailey Staff Writer
February is far from fantastic. Around here, it is gray and cold most of the time. We started out the year with the best of intentions. The talk on this page has been focused on resolutions to be “lighter on the earth.” Understandably, this can be a real drag when we have at least six more weeks of winter to wade through. Our instincts tell us to go for comfort first – drive in a pre-heated car to the fast food and head home to eat it up and fill the trash can with the remaining garbage. While easy, this will not help with February. Hear me out - keeping those well meaning resolutions can be fun! It can even be easy, interesting, and provide you with good food and fun times with friends. Here are a few ideas: Since we are trying to eat less
meat – even just one less meal with meat a week, and drive less, walk (yes, walk) down the road to Thyme of Grace for a vegetarian soup, salad or quiche, or to the Farmer’s Market Cafe. Go with a friend and have a walk and talk session before savoring some super food. Dinner party: Invite over some friends for a meatless “not luck” meal. This is the name The Surreal Gourmet, Bob Blumer, has given to a gathering featuring delicious dinners where cooking the meal is part of the party. Here’s how it works: Assign each guest one or more specific ingredients – look up something gourmet and vegetarian (see resource box). Make sure to stick within everyone’s budget. When everyone arrives – cook, eat and be merry! Dinner and a movie party: Same start as above, but follow with a food film. Cut your car-
bon footprint by not going out or even having a video mailed to you. Many are available to stream from Netflix or other online video sources (memberships may be required). Some recommendations are Food, Inc., Super Size Me, The Future of Food, The Botany of Desire, and King Corn: You Are What You Eat. Even if cooking is not your thing, and films are not possible to view beyond the three inches of your phone, remember: “Enjoying each other costs the planet much less than enjoying its resources.” Get connected. Check out your food, but not at the supermarket. Visit a farmer’s market or local food coop to see the flavors and colors of winter. You’ll be surprised at all there is to see and taste, not to mention the neat people behind the plants that made all the food. Visits can be visual, they can, in fact, be a sensory sensation. See, taste, touch, smell,
talk, listen… Perhaps you will bring home something new to eat along with some new experiences to savor. Good luck on your journey to the end of winter. Keep warm, keep connected, and keep losing those pounds (of carbon)!

who has even been requested to play for the president. Titan Productions finds that it is sometimes difficult to get students to come to concerts when they don’t know who the act is. “We figured if we had a festival, it would draw more attention,” Santos said. From serial killer comedians to Valentine’s Game Shows to Music Festivals, Titan Productions will be hosting many events this season and as always, they are free.

Basketball teams raise breast cancer awareness By KENDRA HORSMAN Staff Writer
IU South Bend Athletics teamed up with the Women’s Basketball Association to boost awareness about breast cancer. The Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund received $781 in donations through ticket sales and a private donation table. Last year 1600 teams and organizations took part in the event to raise more than $1.3 million for the Kay Yow fund. “This is our first year but we plan to make it an annual event,” said Henkelman. Dr. Bilah Ansari and Titan Terrors made private donations for the event to give out 200 t-shirts that night. “The shirts helped people show support by wearing pink,” said Henkelman. The girls wore pink socks to show support and the IUSB coaching staff wore pink clothing. Even the bleachers were papered in pink.
Everyone stepped up to help out. The sororities worked the concessions and the housing department had a contest to see which building could get the most people to go to the game. “A lot of my family suffers from breast cancer,” said Kiefer Kennett a freshman at IUSB, “It was nice to see all the support.” IUSB had a booth to sign up for “Race for the Cure”, a 5K run or walk held on May 1, 2010. “It is open to everyone. Teachers, faculty, staff, and students are all welcome,” said Julie Elliot. “Our goal is to raise $2000 dollars this year,” said Elliot. If you are interested in joining the team contact Julie Elliot at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http:// komennorthernindiana.org/komen Simply select “race teams” and follow the instructions. The team name is “Indiana University South Bend” and the password is “titans.”
