Hornbeck, former search committee member for Helen Giles-Gee, attended the speech. She said she was interested in learning about the candidateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities for the college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to know what he [Perrin] thinks is important here to preserve and build on,â&#x20AC;? Hornbeck said. Hornbeck referred to the fact that Perrin was born in New England. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard he is from Vermont and this would be like coming home for him, which is very interesting.â&#x20AC;? Along with Hornbeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement, one question many might ask themselves is why Perrin wants to leave North Carolina to move to .HHQH 1+ DQG IXOĂ&#x20AC;OO WKLV SRVLtion? When asked what drew him to KSC, Perrin said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keene transforms the lives of young people.â&#x20AC;? Perrin stated when he retires, it will be in a community with a college or university. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A college contributes in so many ways to the vitality of a community,â&#x20AC;? he said. On March 4, the second recommended candidate Dr. Anne Huot visited KSC. During her speech at the Alumni Center, she emphasized the importance of promoting community engagement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In whichever aspect of life you are successful at, you must come with the intention to give back to the community,â&#x20AC;?

In order to answer a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question, Huot spoke about studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advocacy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nationally, there has been a sense of loss related to the lack of student advo-

Recycling Coordinator Heather Greenwood said the waste was then brought to a recycling plant in Jaffrey to be deconstructed.

Keeneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recycling rate is 23-25 percent, Greenwood said. Greenwood said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The majority of people try to sort items, but with the constantly changing population ... thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a learning curve.â&#x20AC;? A big problem with recycling is sorting the materials properly. For on-campus students, â&#x20AC;&#x153;recycling rates depended on whether the dorm had indoor or outdoor recycling ... at least 50 percent of our trash is recyclable,â&#x20AC;? Greenwood said. Originally, in Holloway Hall, there was a collect-all where everyone dumped everyWKLQJ*UHHQZRRGH[SODLQHGEXWWKDWHQGHG in a mess.

Kahn you be the next KSC president?

In the last school year, Keene State College has come to know and love its Interim President, former Vice President of Finance and Planning, Jay Kahn. During this period Kahn has become not only the new president, but the new face of KSC. It would be an understatement to say he has only enjoyed meeting students and working with new individuals on campus. +H¡V DSSURDFKDEOH VPDUW DQG Ă&#x20AC;JKWV IRU DIIRUGDEOH WXLWLRQ $ majority of students have come to truly appreciate Kahn, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a new president just like him, since we sadly canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep him. The new KSC president must understand what a struggle WKHZKROH.6&FRPPXQLW\KDVJRQHWKURXJKDIWHURXU861+ state funding was cut by 45 percent. Kahn spoke at student assembly meetings about wanting to freeze tuition if the school is reimbursed for the money that was cut last year, and LW¡VLPSRUWDQWIRURXUQHZSUHVLGHQWWRKDYHDVLPLODUĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDO plan to help KSC remain an affordable liberal arts school. Speaking of being a liberal arts school, The Equinox would like our new president to have the same appreciation for a liberal arts education that the KSC students and faculty embrace. Students have the opportunity at KSC to really explore difIHUHQWĂ&#x20AC;HOGVRILQWHUHVWWKDWWKH\ZRXOGQ¡WKDYHWKHFKDQFHWR at other schools. Another great part of this type of educating is the great relationship that can form between professor and VWXGHQW$OWKRXJKRQOLQHOHDUQLQJFDQEHEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOWRPDQ\ types of people, KSC prides itself on a traditional classroom education, with only some classes using Blackboard for work outside of the classroom. This tradition is one we would like to keep, especially with growing new departments like safety and nursing and smaller ones like philosophy and dance. There are plenty of intriguing classes to try out, full of inspirLQJDQGLQĂ XHQWLDOSHRSOH It is also important to note that we would really enjoy a president who came into this position with the plans to make .6& WKHLU QHZ KRPH ,W FDQ EH GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW RQ VWXGHQWV ZKHQ D president only stays for a few years and then leaves when a â&#x20AC;&#x153;betterâ&#x20AC;? job title comes along. KSC is a great learning community but needs a leader who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make KSC a stepping stone in their job search. We want someone who will be a guiding light for all because they care. Most importantly though, we need a friendly face, on campus, who is approachable and wants to get to know the student body. Kahn can be known to walk his dog around campus and introduce himself to students he sees. This is one of the little things about Kahn that we really appreciate. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just want our new president to be a name we see attached STAFF COMMENTARY in KSC e-mails. We want to see them interested, present and always moving forward.

The Mason Library can be a great place for a wide range of undertakings: Organizing a class presentation, printing out an assignment as the hourly bells toll signaling you have less than 60 seconds to get the ink on the paper and to the professors desk, reading just about any magazine you can image, utilizing the Wi-Fi when your apartmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is down or study with that cute girl from your history course that you want an excuse to see outside of the classroom. However, my favorite activity the majestic premises can accommodate is sleeping. As an offcampus student with a somewhat comically overfull schedule, rejuvenating the body and mind with a spare hour or two between classes (in a way that coffee simply can not) could be the difference from detesting every second of a lecture and actively participating in a fervent discussion. The awesome thing about (some) library naps (in particular reference to one I experienced recently) is that during my time of heavenly escape from the academic world, I never REALLY

fell asleep, which much to my surprise was a PDJQLĂ&#x20AC;FHQWWKLQJEHFDXVH,ZDVFRPSOHWHO\FRJQL]DQWRIWKHGUHDPV ZKLFKVHHPWRĂ RXULVKLQ slumbers held in a public arena, last less than two hours, and involve headphones secreting Edward Sharp). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual to remember dreams (although personally I rarely do), but it is, I would assume for most, unusual to have an experience where you remember a mini-dream you just awoke from while drifting into another, and another, and another. As the nap was often interrupted by a limb â&#x20AC;&#x153;falling asleep,â&#x20AC;? I would momentarily awake, rearrange (ever so slightly), not taking enough time in the factual realm to check my phone, or fully equate myself with reality, but donating enough mental alertness to observe the fact that what I had just experienced was not reality. $VWKHQH[WPLQLDWXUHWUDLORI=¡VDSSURDFKHG I had the unique opportunity to half-mindfully UHĂ HFWRQWKHRWKHUVZKLFKKDGMXVWSDVVHG8VX-

COMMENTARY

The careless drinking habits need to stop Pregaming: a sacred word to many and a joy to hear from friends. But this act of drinking as much as you can before going out leads to one of my least favorite things.

CORRECTION

In Volume 65, Issue #18 of The Equinox printed Thursday, February 28, 2013, the story titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recognizing the 200th anniversary of Jane Austenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workâ&#x20AC;? possessed a quote that had a misused word from Professor William Stroup. The word â&#x20AC;&#x153;tribalâ&#x20AC;? was used in place of the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;trivial.â&#x20AC;? This has been corrected in the online edition. The Equinox apologizes for this error.

SENIOR REPORTER Balancing a full course workload is not easy at Keene State College. Then add the extra responsibilities of being RQWKHWUDFNDQGĂ&#x20AC;HOGWHDPDV well as the cross country team. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one mixture for a very busy semester. Marie Whitney, a junior transfer from The College of Charleston, graduating from KSC this year with a degree in communications, balances all these commitments with a smile on her face. Whitney said she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been running competitively for long, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started running a little in high school and then I really started when I transferred here to Keene [State College].â&#x20AC;? Making the transition to Keene has been fairly easy for Whitney; she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I transferred here and it was so much easier to make friends and I feel like part of a family because we always eat dinner together and do stuff together.â&#x20AC;? She added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great being a part of a team but I also like running because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual so I can work on my own goals and my personal records and everything.â&#x20AC;? A fellow athlete is sophomore Riley Wilk, who said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;She [Whitney] has a really good personality and she makes everyone laugh all the time and then sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just really sweet with everyone, so it makes us happy to be around her and everything.â&#x20AC;? Wilk also said that Whitney is a great role model, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the older ones so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really easy to look up to her. If any of us need her we know we can go to her, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice.â&#x20AC;? Head Coach of the track DQG Ă&#x20AC;HOG DQG FURVV FRXQWU\ teams, Peter Thomas, agreed

that Whitney is a good role model. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If [Whitney] is not at practice sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either in the classroom or the library ... a great role model for the young kids to look up to.â&#x20AC;? Whitney said she loves how close the team is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole team is like a family, so obviously everyone is very supportive of each other.â&#x20AC;? In order to achieve her goals Whitney has a good support system. Wilk said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really motivated when it comes to things and she has really supportive friends and family so I think that helps a lot and whenever she puts her mind to something it really helps and gets her places.â&#x20AC;? Whitney agreed. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re [my parents] there almost every race and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re my biggest support system, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re great.â&#x20AC;? Support plays a large role in accomplishing goals, but Whitney works hard herself to reach those goals and mentally prepares herself. :KLWQH\ VDLG ´'HĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\ SUHparing mentally is one of the biggest things because I think that can be a downfall for a lot of people, like if you get nervous. I just try to talk myself through, like mentally prepare myself because I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been training physically but mentally when it comes to the races that can push you through to get a personal record or having a great race.â&#x20AC;? One of the ways Whitney mentally prepares is by, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listening to music or I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know going away somewhere quiet to think is usually what I do before races.â&#x20AC;? Part of being mentally prepared for races is balancing school work and running. Wilk said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If she [WhitQH\@ KDV FODVVHV VKH¡OO Ă&#x20AC;JXUH out like when she needs to do

She added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;She pretty much does whatever she needs and makes a good thing out of everything.â&#x20AC;?

Whitney said that although there is a lot of pressure she enjoys the challenge, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There KDYHGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\EHHQPRPHQWV when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really stressed out, juggling school and running.

I just try to see the positive side of things that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work now but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rewarding when I have a good race or if I do well on a test or something.â&#x20AC;?

Whitney also stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes it can get stressful but I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to manage it really well and I feel that if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what I would do with all that extra time.â&#x20AC;?

I know I can go to her if I ever need anything that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even involve running ... sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of my closest friends on the team.â&#x20AC;?

Houle confessed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they are the worst tippers on the planet.â&#x20AC;? Working during the nights that are popular with the college crowd is not worth it in his opinion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand that they have limited funds,â&#x20AC;? he noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if you run up a $25 [to] $30 tab and leave a dollar, or buy a beer for 75 cents and take your quarter back, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pathetic.â&#x20AC;? He stressed that sometimes there are only one or two bartenders during a shift, so the 60-70 students around the bar being â&#x20AC;&#x153;horribly demandingâ&#x20AC;? makes the job a lot more onerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bartenders are working as fast as they can to get the drinks out as fast as they can,â&#x20AC;? he said. Cobblestone Manager Keith Coll however, experiences the opposite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common misconception that the kids are too rowdy, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too wild, they think the locals are the weird townies, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really not like that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody here is usually pretty respectful, regardless of the crowd they come in. The crowds intermingle fairly well.â&#x20AC;? The tips that are left at Cobblestone are very generous, according to both Coll and Cobblestone bartender Trevor Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien. Coll said that they have some sort of drink or food special every day and that is what drives their customers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting such a good deal, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re usually very generous. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had a problem with that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re as generous as they can be.â&#x20AC;?

About 30 percent of the customer base for the Pour House is college students, he estimated, whereas Cobblestone or Lab â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lager has close to 70 or 80 percent, he said.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just only the team bonding, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to miss the team aspects, running together as a team and you know having a team to be apart of.â&#x20AC;?

Ă&#x20AC;QGLVFORVHGWKDWSHUFHQWLVWKH average that is left. But among college students, he said that it is usually 10-15 percent lower than working professionals. When asked if it was discouraging, he admitted it was more so in the past during his time at Lab â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt that I was doing twice the work for half the pay. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the internal added stress,â&#x20AC;? he said. The stress includes keeping an eye on college students for liability purposes. Because college students have a tendency to binge drink a lot more, the Pour House watches their specials and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer them quite the same way Cobblestone does, *ULIĂ&#x20AC;QVDLG In terms of student behavior, *ULIĂ&#x20AC;Q VDLG KH GRHVQ¡W PLQG VWXdents coming into the Pour House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind seeing college kids.

Everything aside, bartenders in Keene suggest students keep a few things in mind next time they go out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would encourage them to pay more attention to their actions,â&#x20AC;? Houle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By showing respect to the establishment and the bartenders, it shows they have respect for themselves and the people around them.â&#x20AC;? He also said that the owner of Penucheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s does want the students to come in; they cater to them with their low prices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students need to understand that every time we serve a drink, we worry about over serving,â&#x20AC;? *ULIĂ&#x20AC;QH[SODLQHG â&#x20AC;&#x153;The law in New Hampshire says the last bartender is responsible for a customer.

Too beautiful for words, another student captivated by Italy

Shannon Flynn, Italy Every time someone asks â&#x20AC;&#x153;Howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Italy? Are you having fun?â&#x20AC;? the only response I can come up with is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good.â&#x20AC;? Italy is indescribable. I have no idea how to begin to answer those questions. I think the main reason I have trouble describing my experiences to my friends and family back in the United States is because there are so many differences between New Hampshire and Italy. You really have to be here and see it for yourself to understand. However, I am going to give this my best try. Florence is just like any other major city. There are tall buildings, FUD]\FDEGULYHUVVWUHHWVĂ&#x20AC;OOHGZLWK tourists and it never goes completely dark. I have to say though, I have never been anywhere like Florence. Everything about this city is beautiful and unique. The architecture, for example, is like nothing I have ever seen. (YHU\ZKHUH , JR , Ă&#x20AC;QG P\VHOI staring at buildings, admiring just how historic and beautiful they are. The oldest piece of architecture in Florence is the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, or Duomo as most people refer to it. I am fortunate enough to live directly across the street from the Duomo, inarguably the most sought after location in Florence. When I open the windows of my living room and kitchen, I gaze right at it. The Duomo is Florenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main cathedral. The construction of the marble cathedral began in 1296 and completed in 1436. The 140 years of construction GHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\ SDLG RII 1RW RQO\ LV WKH Duomo, in my opinion, the most beautiful piece of architecture Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen, it also one of the largest. After passing it multiple times daily IRUWKHSDVWPRQWK,VWLOOĂ&#x20AC;QGP\VHOI

gazing at the green and white church in complete awe of its size. To put it in perspective, I think if we were to place the Duomo on the KSC campus, it would easily take up the majority of campus. Living next to the Duomo has countless perks. The biggest one is that I am conveniently located right in the center of Florence so everything is within a ten-minute walk. It is also virtually impossible to get lost going to the Duomo. All you have to do is look up at the sky and you will be able to see its massive, round top. My roommates and I even have our own saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;All roads lead to Duomo.â&#x20AC;? So far our saying has proven to be true. No matter which way we turn, the Duomo is always in sight. The only negative about my location, which is not actually a bad thing, is the massive amounts of tourists the Duomo attracts. People come from all over the world to get a picture of themselves in front of the historic church. Especially when the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out, the street is almost impossible to walk down. As I try to make my ZD\ WR FODVV , DP DOZD\V Ă&#x20AC;QGLQJ myself caught in the middle of these tours and walking in front of people taking pictures of the Duomo. There are many other beautiful pieces of architecture in Florence. One of the more well-known structures is the Ponte Vecchio. The Ponte Vecchio is the famous bridge that stretches across the Fume (the river in Florence), connecting both sides of Florence. If you ask me, this is the most romantic spot in Florence. There are always couples strolling down the Ponte Vecchio hand in hand. Florence is also home to many museums and historical artifacts. The original sculpture of the David is located in Florence. I have not gone to see it yet, but there is a plaza in Florence with many sculptures outside, one being a remake of Michelangeloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;David.â&#x20AC;? Not only is the architecture amazing, the food is as well! I have to say, some of the best food I will ever eat is here in Florence. Everything is so fresh and natural. I personally have problems with my stomach so being able to eat and

drink whatever I want without feeling sick is one of the best feelings. My favorite place to buy groceries here is in the fresh markets. Not only is it inexpensive, you can tell the food was freshly picked. Besides all the great experiences I have had thus far, I will admit I did experience some culture shock. I knew I was throwing myself into a completely different country, but I did not expect there to be so many small differences. The two biggest issues I still have to this day are the language barrier and adjusting to the pace of life. Although many people in Florence do speak English, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t DOZD\V Ă XHQW , ZDV WROG EHIRUH , came here that Italian was very similar to Spanish (which it really is not) so I did not try to learn any before I came. This was my biggest regret.

I thought since I have been taking Spanish since the seventh grade I would be all set. I was so wrong. Every time I try to speak Italian I can feel my American accent oozing out. When it comes to time in Italy, well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very slow. I am not used to this. Personally, I am a very fastpaced person. I walk, talk and eat fast. Italians are not like this. They take their time and enjoy what they are experiencing. I am trying to work on this since you do not need to rush through life. 7KH RWKHU GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW\ , UDQ LQWR was the time difference. Here in Italy I am six hours ahead of the East Coast. Now I have this under FRQWURO EXW DW Ă&#x20AC;UVW P\ VOHHSLQJ schedule was really messed up. All I wanted was to sleep all day. Then when night came I could not get myself to fall asleep at a decent time.

The other challenge I had with time differences was when it came to eating meals. Firstly, Italians do not eat breakfast. Very few restaurants are open in the morning and if they DUH \RX KDYH D VHOHFWLRQ RI ZDIĂ HV SDVWULHVRUPXIĂ&#x20AC;QV They do not eat eggs, bacon or pan fries for breakfast like we do in the United States.

Some of the KSC students left the noisy demolition house to go help at a distribution center with Brigantine & Beyond, a group of volunteers who travel over an hour every Saturday to give out goods and help out one of the hardest hit communities.

At the center, the students helped the Hurricane Sandy victims who lost everything in the storm by bringing supplies out to their cars and sorting cleaning products, tools, food and other necessities so the center could run smoothly.

If you do not look semi-dressed up you will get stared at, something I was not used to. I have always wanted to study abroad. One of the reasons I chose Keene was that I would be able to go abroad. I wanted to go abroad so I could step out of my comfort zone and experience things I would not normally have the opportunity to do so. So far being abroad has made me more independent and adventurous. Although I do miss my family and friends, I am making memories here that I will never forget and I am going to cherish every moment I have here.

Speaking about the relief efforts being done Nesa said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dropping off donations with the truck is one thing, but once establishing this distribution center and seeing the faces and hearing the stories, you just cannot walk away. We are going to be here as long as they need us and we want to get Brigantine back to what it was.â&#x20AC;? Candace Linn, project coordinator of the New Jersey Community Collaborations, spoke about the impact these students had in the community and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a variety of projects and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also just kind of brought back spirit to the community for people that have been struggling for the past couple of months and feel like people have forgotten about them.â&#x20AC;? An entire community was immersed in water and getting the city back to its original state will take time. Linn added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going take several months to rebuild, its going to take several years, so every day that someone goes in and helps out, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one step closer for that person to get back in their home.â&#x20AC;?

Grad students â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; phenomenon spreads through KSC lose social life To Write Love On Her Arms founder breaks stereotypes of mental health in Keene MEGAN GRENIER

EQUINOX STAFF

STEVEN TRINKWALD

EQUINOX STAFF If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re considering enrolling in a graduate program at Keene State College, you may want to enjoy your social life while you still can. Like the undergrad programs here at KSC, the programs are offered in both full-time and part-time options. Full-time programs can be completed in one or two years, depending on the program. Current KSC senior Jessica Jahne will be entering the special education graduate program next year, one which she said she expects to be pretty intense. Jahne said her social life would be put on the back burner once in sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the graduate program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it will probably be non-existent because the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty intense. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 40 hours a week in the school plus night classes during the week,â&#x20AC;? Jahne said. KSC senior Kristy Mastropietro said she also expects to be very focused once in the graduate program, leaving little time for friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With this program itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really intense so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much social life to have anymore because it basically is a full-time job on top of having another job so that I can pay for it. So my social life is kind of limited after this,â&#x20AC;? Mastropietro said. Jodie Dresser is a current grad student and an assistant coach for ERWK WKH ZRPHQ¡V ODFURVVH DQG Ă&#x20AC;HOG hockey teams. Dresser said that with her responsibilities as a student, an assistant coach and working, she has shifted her focus away from other things. Dresser said she chose to take on the larger workload in an effort to get through the program as quickly as possibly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went from having a social life to not having a social life basically,â&#x20AC;? Dresser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I signed up, I kind of had the PLQGVHWWKDW,ZDQWHGWRJHWP\FHUWLĂ&#x20AC;cation as quickly as possible and kind of blow through the program as best as I could, so I went full-time ... Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a heavy hitting program, and so it really is very time consuming and the workload is much different than undergrad,â&#x20AC;? Dresser said. Current graduate student Mimi Rhines, who went to New England College for her Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree, said KSC is known for having a great educational program. Rhines said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what drew her to the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from the area and it has a really good reputation and I knew people who went to the program and they told me the professors are awesome. And Keene State [College] is really well known for education so that made sense,â&#x20AC;? Rhines said Rhines said that despite the heavy workload, she tries to stay involved with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in the KSC community. Rhines said that so far the program has lived up to the reputation that drew Rhines to KSC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a really great program. The professors DUH JUHDW WKH\ DUH UHDOO\ Ă H[LEOH ZLWK that schedule. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice because they know you can only do as much as you can handle,â&#x20AC;? Rhines said. Jahne said she chose the program because of the familiarity of the campus and professors. ´,Ă&#x20AC;JXUHGWKDWVLQFH,¡PDOUHDG\KHUH at Keene State [College] and into the routine of how professors run their classes it would be easiest to just stay,â&#x20AC;? Jahne said. Matropietro said that along with being a one-year program, familiarity also played a role in her decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like the program here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good educational program and I talked with a lot of advisors about the program, the follow-up program, and LWMXVWNLQGRIVHHPHGWRĂ&#x20AC;WÂľ0DVWURSLetro said. Mastropietro said that the heavy workload will reduce her role in the KSC community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m inside the schools for the whole day. Being in student teaching that I just did last semester I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really involved in Keene State because I am heavily off campus. So I feel like it will kind of be the same way,â&#x20AC;? Mastropietro said. Jahne said she expects not to be involved in what happens outside of the classroom at KSC once she enters the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll really have a role, I feel like I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really be that much of a part of the social life that happens on the weekend,â&#x20AC;? Jahne said. While the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation is drawing in students, the heavy workload involved in completing the program is keeping these students focused on being the classroom and internships.

There was a substantial turn out as To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) founder Jamie Tworkowski spoke in the Mabel Brown Room about the struggle of depression, addiction, selfinjury and suicide on Tuesday, Feb. 26. Student Activities and Organizations Assistant Chelsea Harris organized this event. Harris said that they were looking to do a follow-up of the PostSecret event they held last spring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something that a lot of people know about and has a lot of publication that stands for good values. So we wanted to make an impact,â&#x20AC;? Harris said. Senior Samantha Possemato said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to have the founder of To Write Love On Her Arms here [at Keene State College].â&#x20AC;? Sophomore Natasha Cable said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know a lot of people have been trying to get [TWLOHA] to come or start a chapter [on campus].â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Write Love On Her Arms began as a simple attempt to tell a story of a friend in need but quickly grew into a phenomenon supported by bands such as Switchfoot and Paramore,â&#x20AC;? Harris said. Tworkowski said that there are roughly 20 million people in the United States who are struggling with depression and that untreated depression is the leading cause of suicide. 7ZRUNRZVNL VDLG 7:/2+$ MXVW Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHG WKHLU biggest tour ever across the country; it was three weeks long and visited 17 cities. At these events, including the one at KSC, Tworkowski said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My hope is that you walk out of here feeling encouraged, you walk out of here feeling less alone, you walk out of here feeling like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay to be honest and as a student or as a person you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have to have all of the answers and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to always have it all together.â&#x20AC;? Teresa Hoffman, intern in the KSC Counseling Center, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned about a friend or family member and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure what to do, come on up, we can talk to you about how to help your friend or how to talk to them,â&#x20AC;? Hoffman added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be alone.â&#x20AC;? At the beginning of this TWLOHA event Steven McMorran, member of the band Satellite, performed songs. Tworkowski said every TWLOHA event starts with music, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel like music is a really appropriate place to start because it seems like music has this capability where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed to be honest.â&#x20AC;? Tworkowski continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed to say WKLQJVWKDWDUHGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWÂľ Tworkowski explained the story of a close friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle with depression is what inspired him to attempt to tell more people that it is possible to receive help. Tworkowski said he asked his friend if she ever thought of telling her story to others, expecting the answer to be no and for her to be offended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She lit up and smiled and said she loved the idea and that maybe there could be a purpose for her pain, that maybe somebody else, maybe some other family, could relate to her story and maybe someone would even take that step to get help because of this story,â&#x20AC;? Tworkowski said. Tworkowski did not expect to have TWLOHA explode as quickly as it did, or even at all. Tworkowski was friends with the singer of Switchfoot, John Foreman, and before one of their shows in front of

Keene bartenders discuss KSC students and their bar manners KATTEY ORTIZ

EQUINOX STAFF When students go out to the bars, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a place to unwind and have some good times with good company. People go up to the bartender, ask for a drink and sit back down. Normally, people would think that this is a fairly simple task, but to thank them for their services they drop an extra amount of money for a tip. But what is a standard, average tip to leave the person on the other side of the counter? How much is too much or too little? Senior Rachelle Poirier said what she leaves for a tip depends on the point RI WKH QLJKW ´,I ,¡P Ă&#x20AC;YH GULQNV LQ ,¡OO probably leave a lot of money,â&#x20AC;? she said,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if I just get a couple drinks Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only leave a dollar.â&#x20AC;? Despite this, she said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never really noticed anything that is considered a â&#x20AC;&#x153;standardâ&#x20AC;? tip. Senior AJ Mucciaro said he leaves anywhere from 20 percent to 35 percent depending on how good the bartender was. An informal online survey of 36 Keene State College students showed that 25 percent of students also tip depending on the bartender. Twenty-six students said they leave a dollar for every drink they order. Only one student said they leave a standard 18 percent to 20 percent. Nobody, however, said that they do not leave a tip. Some may also consider that the services depend on the bar as well. In

downtown Keene, bars that draw a large turnout of college students are Cobblestone, Penucheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Lab â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lager and McCueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. With this in mind, the question remains: what do bartenders actually expect and would like to receive for their work? Bartender Patrick Houle has been VHUYLQJ GULQNV DW 3HQXFKH¡V IRU Ă&#x20AC;YH years. He described Penucheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as a friendlier bar with a relaxed atmosphere that is a lot more comfortable for patrons.

College develops relationship with country after student trip leaves great impact JULIE CONLON

STUDENT LIFE EDITOR The Keene State College Honors Program has sent students on eye-opening trips abroad for years. In the spring semester, a small group of students takes a class and learns about a country a little less plush and a little more complicated than their comfortable United States of America. And every year students come home with memories to last a lifetime. But one trip this past summer left a group of students with a little more than just great stories and souvenirs. In May of 2012, ten Keene State College students traveled to Bosnia and Herzegovina. Today, at least three students have plans to return, and with the growing development the college has created with the slowly resurrecting country, more students may one day soon have for themselves similar life-changing experiences. Brian Green, a professor of sociology, was one of the faculty members who took the group of Honors Students to Bosnia. He said he was impressed by the enthusiasm he witnessed from the ten even before they left the United States. One student he noted in particular was junior Becca Brady. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She seemed to be the most interested and just really wanted to build a project and take it really seriously and learn a lot. I was very impressed ZLWK KHU ZRUN IURP WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW GD\Âľ *UHHQ VWDWHG Green said once arriving in Bosnia, Brady took to the FRXQWU\´OLNHDĂ&#x20AC;VKWRZDWHU,W¡VHDV\IRUSHRSOHWR talk, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been following through since the very beginning,â&#x20AC;? he said. %UDG\VDLGWKLVWULSWR%RVQLDZDVKHUĂ&#x20AC;UVWLQWHUQDtional trip. The junior explained once she arrived in Bosnia she was overwhelmed. She said she remembers thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is amazing, I need more of it.â&#x20AC;? And more of it she got. Brady said she and the nine other students took every opportunity they had while in Bosnia to learn and explore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all of us were so energized. Even when we had free time we were going to the market and trying to navigate things on our own. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there was ever really a time when we were like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just go sit in the hotel.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We were always doing something, which made it PRUHEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOÂľ But Bosnia held something beyond captivating landscapes and beautiful markets that kept these stu-

Brady said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may have been just because we were so sort of immersed into the culture. I think we got so much out of Bosnia in the two weeks. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there was anything more we could have gotten out of it. We learned the good stuff and the bad stuff and it was really emotional for us. I think that emotional stuff is what made it have a greater impact.â&#x20AC;? This impact led Brady to begin fundraising for a return trip. Upon arriving home, Brady began searching organizations and internships in Bosnia that would allow her to teach. She started a website for funding and has since raised over $1,600 in personal

donations. Last month, Brady was accepted to teach English for two months in Tuzla, Bosnia. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bosnia feverâ&#x20AC;? these students have brought back to KSC even has other students interested.

EQUINOX STAFF Remember the connection you felt to Ross and Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship? As much as you wanted it to work out, you just knew it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. What about Joeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggling acting career? Even though you knew he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best actor, his air-headed sense of humor and Italian-stallion good looks overruled his fall-out after they killed off Dr. Drake Ramoray on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Days of our Lives.â&#x20AC;? And who could forget Phoebeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smelly Catâ&#x20AC;? video? As much as you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to be, you know that song was stuck in your head for days. Then, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chandler and Monica. Chandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manhood is constantly questioned ... but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay, because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in love. Monicaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Monicaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and her labeled coffee mugs and quirky ways probably still linger in the old apartment today. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that make you question where are they now? Did Joeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting career go any further? Did Rachel and Ross actually work out after they confessed their love to each other (again) in the last episode? What about Monica and Chandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twins?! And Phoebe ... is she still stuck driving a taxicab as a part-time masseuse? There are far too many questions that remain unanswered. And what a better way to answer these questions other than a good, old-fashioned reunion show. Yeah, I said it, a reunion! TBS still airs regular reruns and so does the

ever-popular â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nick at Night.â&#x20AC;? Clearly, the show is still a big hit. MTV continuously airs â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jersey Shoreâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teen Momâ&#x20AC;? reunions every other night, so why not do a follow-up reunion episode that people actually care about? People still watch â&#x20AC;&#x153;Friendsâ&#x20AC;? to this day and regardless if you have seen every episode, it somehow never gets boringâ&#x20AC;Śever. To put it simply, why is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Friendsâ&#x20AC;? worthy of a gathering after a long nine years? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because it was one of the best shows ever,â&#x20AC;? Dean Gail Zimmermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Administrative Assistant, Debra Barrett, said.â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a timeless, remarkable show with a remarkable cast that meshed so well that made you want to watch it,â&#x20AC;?

It made you ready to watch the next show. The only problem is there is no next show anymore. Our minds canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but wonder if everything worked out. Throughout their trials and tribulations of new jobs, relationships and even patching up their own friendshipsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like when Rachel felt the need to tell Joey that her boss wanted to buy her baby, just so they could have something to talk about since things got awkward after their attempted hook upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it only makes sense to let us know that even though the group has moved out of the apartment, are they still friends?

The play, directed by Peggy Rae Johnson, professor of theatre and dance, tells the story of a deposed nobleman and powerful sorcerer named Prospero, played by Dan Patterson, professor of theatre and dance, living alone on an island with only his young daughter Miranda, played by Ryan Connell, his monstrous servant Caliban, played by Will Adams, and the powerful spirit known as Ariel, played by Cara Gerardi, for company. Upon seeing the queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ship approaching his island, Prospero uses his power to create a storm that will maroon the passengers--forcing the passengers of the ship to wander the island in despair. One young prince named Ferdinand, played by Aaron Howland, falls for Miranda and is forced to prove his love and worthiness to Prospero in order to gain his approval. Prospero not only worries about measuring Ferdinandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worthiness, but also about taking back the control over his own future and control over his traitorous sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest for power. However, it is the actors--especially the female roles of this production--that help bring the elements of drama, fantasy and comedy.

Connell skillfully played the curious and naĂŻve Miranda in way that gave the character both strength and vulnerability. Gerardi brought a fresh representation to her character Ariel, encompassing dancer-like steps and movements that showcased a sense of grace and insecurity. Her movements allowed her to demonstrate a love for her master and a desire for her freedom. Patterson made the audience fear Prosperoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purposeful sense of power and control, though develops into a more compassionate character. Patterson also delivered Shakespearean dialogue with emotion, providing a clear understanding of his characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motives. But it was the trio of drunken fools--Elissa

Johnson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even in the tragedies, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s active, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly active.

However, it was not only the actors that helped bring Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play to life, the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set and use of lighting illustrated and conveyed the sense of tension and darkness or the presence of a spirit. The setting also featured digital effects that accompanied Prosperoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moments of power.

However, Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adaption of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tempest,â&#x20AC;? featured actors who not only delivered the dialogue in a way that enhanced the meaning and emotion, but the production also featured actors who maintained a sense of control in their movements, voice range, and emotion.

with running ads or sponsored stories on Facebook. The larger the budget, the more people a campaign is likely to reach,â&#x20AC;? Facebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website stated. This allows companies to advertise their products in a more cost effective manner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ads that I usually click on are of clothing or jewelry, that is what appeals to me the most,â&#x20AC;? Facebook user and KSC junior Katelyn Root said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If something attracts my eye Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll click on it and see where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring me,â&#x20AC;? Root added. The advertisement all depends on the apearance of the ad, which is what helps lure clients in and to have them come back for more. A tip from frugalmarketing.com states ways to attract clients are to offer a reduced price, a special service and to stand far out from the competition. Business-opportunities.biz website said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Choose something like a coupon or a two day sale, this will get the customers rolling LQ WKH GRRU VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\ IRU WKH VDOH EXW WKHQ once they see all the products offered and the prices that are available every day and the excellent customer service that they will receive, it is almost a sure bet that everyone will be coming back over and over whether there is a sale or not.â&#x20AC;? A number of KSC students reportedly all commonly drew most of their attention towards clothing advertisements. Lauren Dougherty said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only ad WKDW , DFWXDOO\ Ă&#x20AC;QG LQWHUHVWLQJ LV LI WKHUH DUH clothes that are cute.

Now, advertisements have become a crucial part of social networking sites.

Junior Julie Trombetta said she also likes to explore clothing advertisements. â&#x20AC;?It brings me to new clothing lines that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of before,â&#x20AC;? she said. However, even though the advertisements attract recruiters, they do not necessarily lead any student interviewed into a purchase. Though according to businessnewsdaily. com, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A comScore report, which was co-sponsored by Facebook, however, showed a different result, saying that Facebook ads did help purchases, sometimes as much as 38 percent over those not exposed to Facebook ads.â&#x20AC;? Freshman Hanna DeSouza said,â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it all depends on the person, if he or she would want to buy something off of Facebook. Personally, I think ads are a virus and I get too scared to click on them.â&#x20AC;? Advertising is a form of persuading the audience, and by advertising on Facebook, it will attract a large audience with different interests. Bagwell.com gives interesting advice when it comes to targeting audience; identity your audience, use advertising media that will reach your audience, design and write copy to relate to your audience. By following these rules, a company can succeed in attracting a larger crowd. However, advertising on Facebook not only reaches a larger targeted audience, but it ensures that Facebook users can access these advertisements anywhere, whether it is at home using the computer or on the go with their smartphone, which makes Facebook societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest billboard for advertising.

So after feeling such a bond to Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and Phoebe, how could you not have ants in your pants in anticipation about where they are today? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be funny to see them now because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an old show, plus everyone loves throwbacks,â&#x20AC;?

Eastern Connecticut game, he said his coach told him not to get overly excited or anxious about reaching 1,000 points in that game, but Fazio said he was feeling good. It was on a free throw that he got KLVFDUHHUGHĂ&#x20AC;QLQJSRLQWEXWRQO\IRXU SRVVHVVLRQV ODWHU KH ZDV RQ WKH Ă RRU of the basketball court, unconscious. Fazio took a charge and fell to the court while teammate Montel Walcott went up to block the ball off the back board and came down, landing on Fazioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was knocked out. I was in a daze. I woke up in the hospital feeling nauseous and with a headache,â&#x20AC;? Fazio said. He came to while being carried away on the stretcher, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember it. He also doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember speaking with his mother who was at the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was talking to a coach about how Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to score the thousandth point at our next game, a home game with the home crowd. He was like, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold back, just push it. Imagine if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it and I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have come back to play,â&#x20AC;? Fazio said. He missed two games but was able to come back in for the LEC championship game against Rhode Island College. Merrow said when he started his work at KSC in the athletic training program 27 years ago, Fazioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concussion would have been called â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bell ringer.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone through many, many changes in how we determine what a concussion is.â&#x20AC;? The term, a casual brush-off of the injury, is completely retired in medical jargon. The most recently used term now is a mild brain injury instead of concussion. Merrow acknowledged the increasing awareness and information that has come forth on the injury in recent years. The NCAA doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a written rule when it comes to concussions, according to Athletic Director John Ratliff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What the NCAA provides is guidelines. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there are hard and fast rules for concussions.â&#x20AC;? Ratliff said, however, there is a much more heightened awareness for concussions. Ratliff said all athletes have to have a pre-screening test for concussions, a baseline that provides the athletic trainers with a yardstick on which to measure the severity of a concussion if an athlete sustains one. Merrow emphasizes that the NCAA mandates that colleges need to have a plan in order

to treat concussions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If an athlete has any indication they have a concussion in practice or in a game, we pull them immediately,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plan of action is how are we going to evaluate them to determine if they have a concussion and we have to have a process of gradual return to play.â&#x20AC;? When athletes have no symptoms of a concussion, WKH\PXVWFRPSOHWHDĂ&#x20AC;YHVWDJHSURFHVV before going back to practice for high intensity physical activity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel pretty comfortable with what our athletic training room is doing, making sure that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the best interest of student athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; safety,â&#x20AC;? Ratliff said. Ratliff also explained the athletic training department was aware of the effects of a concussion â&#x20AC;&#x153;before it was popular to be cognizant of it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the new tools that are out there to screen for concussion are computerized. One program is called Impact and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a neuro-psychology evaluation tool to check the brain. Schools with football and hockey have those systems in place,â&#x20AC;? Merrow said. While KSC doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have those contact sports, Merrow said he feels their return to play protocols â&#x20AC;&#x153;have served us very, very well.â&#x20AC;? Merrow said despite the budget and size of a particular collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic training program, if they have NCAADIĂ&#x20AC;OLDWHG VSRUWV WKH\ PXVW IROORZ WKH guidelines the NCAA provides. Purdue University has conducted an on-going study that determines how much force football players and soccer players experience while being tackled or going up for a header. The study has determined that lasting damaging effects are caused by repeated blows to the head as opposed to one single blow to the head, so athletes involved in physical contact sports have an increased risk of physical and psychological damage the longer they play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Purdue study is looking at it and seeing that, over time, the average college football player is hitting WKHLUKHDGDWVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQW*IRUFHVD times per season. Their recommendation is how to limit those opportunities,â&#x20AC;? he said. According to Physics professor Susan Romano, athletes face high levels of g-forces in play without the help of safety equipment that straps them in, like a roller coaster. The Purdue study suggests limiting the number of times a week a player is dealing with this high volume of contact. Right now, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the NCAA is not taking action because the football coaches want as much contact as they can.

Merrow said. As far as other preventive measures, womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer player Hayley Kenyon said something worn on the head during the game might get in the way of play. She mentioned a foam headpiece worn by her teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goalie to prevent concussions, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;going up for a header, the ball may go a different way than what you intended,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good protective measure, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just not sure if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practical.â&#x20AC;? Merrow also agrees with Kenyon that helmets and protective equipment are not the best answer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically, what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been looking at is helmets. What happens during a concussion is the brain shakes around in there. Even with a helmet on, it can only offer a certain degree of protection,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hit hard enough with a helmet, the brain still wiggles around, causing a concussion,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kenyonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestion for a possible solution was tighter calls from the referees, but it can only do so much to protect DWKOHWHV´'HĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\HQIRUFLQJWKHUXOHV is important and following the rules for WKH DWKOHWHV LV LPSRUWDQW :H¡UH GHĂ&#x20AC;nitely in a situation where there can be dramatic changes in sports,â&#x20AC;? Merrow VDLG ,Q DGGLWLRQ WR HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW HQIRUFHment of the rules of the game, Merrow acknowledged that there are other ways to help prevent concussions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best thing we can do is proper skills, proper technique, strengthen the

neck for sports like soccer. The strength in the neck and head is very important,â&#x20AC;? Merrow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making sure you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use you head with a helmet on it as a weapon. We still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the answers to completely prevent a concussion.â&#x20AC;? The issue, however, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just in the world of sports. Many states are adopting legislation to help protect athletes from concussions, on the high school level and the college level as well. Particularly in New Hampshire, House Bill 402 was passed in August of last year, a measure to protect athletes at the high school level. The bill on freeconcussion.org, states that all high schools throughout New Hampshire must have some sort of system in place in order to diagnose concussions and to treat them. The bill also requires schools to disseminate important about concussions and their harmful effects, so throughout all levels of play, athletes can be protected from the damaging effects as a result of minor brain injuries. Merrow said irreversible changes can be the result of multiple concussions, and can lead to fading memory, altered memory, personality changes, constant headaches and some people may become violent. The brain changes over time as a result of the constant impact. It affects their academic life and could result in changes in how they learn and study.

EQUINOX STAFF <RXNQRZWKDWIHHOLQJRIĂ&#x20AC;QGLQJPRQH\" You didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out looking for it: you just happened to stumble across a crinkly bill on the ground and picked it up and smirked. The Keene State College Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lacrosse Team might have done just that and found money in the form of transfer athlete Mike Curley. Head coach of the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lacrosse team, Mark Theriault, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out looking for a premiere defender within the conference who could start immediately, but he certainly got one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A little bit of success breeds success.

With a clutch performance in the Keene State College Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lacrosse teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season opener, this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Athlete of the Week is Taylor Jette. The senior led the Owls to an 11-9 victory over Rensselaer at home, to kick off their season on a positive note. Jette had two goals and assisted two others in the game. His presence was crucial in the waning minutes of the game assisting Taylor Wickeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal with 8:15 remaining, tying the game at 9-9. He then scored the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go-ahead goal with 4:35 left on the game clock. --7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWUXQQHUXSWKLVZHHN is Cody Dube of the KSC Baseball team. The freshman pitcher PDGH KLV Ă&#x20AC;UVW VWDUW IRU .6& LQ their game against Western New England College. Dube came into the game in the eighth inning, and pitched six shutout innings to help the Owls eventually pull out the 6-5 victory in the 13th inning. Of the 21 batters Dube faced, he only allowed one hit and one walk in his dĂŠbut. --The second runner-up this week is Nicole Curry of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lacrosse team. The senior captain had one goal and two assists in KSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11-6 defeat in their season RSHQHU DJDLQVW 6SULQJĂ&#x20AC;HOG &ROlege.

Eric Fazio scored 1,029 points during his collegiate career. For several hours, however, he only remembered 988 of them. Fazio is a forward for the Keene State College Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basketball team, and he sustained a concussion the same game he reached the 1,000 point milestone during the Owlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contest against Eastern Connecticut College. Fazio still has no memory from the time he was knocked unconscious to the time he woke up in the hospital hours later. While he was carried off the court on a stretcher, Fazio walked into the KSC basketball record books, becoming one member of a trio of teammates to reach the 1,000 point mark throughout their careers. This is only the second time in KSC history a triad of players has accomplished this feat, after three teammates in the 19881989 season reached the same goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the greatest feeling to be a part of that prestigious 1000-point club group. I come into the gym and I look at all the plaques of the names in the gym and soon my name will be up there and people will remember me,â&#x20AC;? Fazio said. Fazio, while celebrating his accomplishment, was also contending with the recovery from his concussion. The world of sports has taken a closer look at concussions and their damaging effects, including the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s institution of stricter penalties on players for helmet-to-helmet contact as well as the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injury and concussion monitoring system. According to ncaa.org, estimates suggest that between 1.6 and 3.5 million concussions occur every year as a result of sports-related activities. How-

convinced me to transfer here [to KSC]; he played a big factor in it. He made it easy on me and introduced me to everyone before the season started.â&#x20AC;? That good friend was senior captain of the lacrosse team, Tommy Todd, who was a transfer from Southern New Hampshire University and shares the hometown of Billerica, Mass. with Curley. Todd said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to high school with him so that was a big deal for us. I mean we could play together again, which is nice. We were coached the same way so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of on the same page.â&#x20AC;? He continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We compliment each other a lot, which is cool, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to know people and not go into somewhere

It takes just one moment in time for an athlete to approach that edge, and in one immediate decision, decide to leap over that edge and push themselves harder than they ever have before. In Shenandoah, Texas, between March 20 and 23, seven Keene State College swimmers will be approaching that edge of the pool and will be making that split-second decision right before WKH\GLYHLQKHDGĂ&#x20AC;UVW KSC is bringing a record seven Owl swimmers from the male team to the 2013 Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Swimming and Diving NCAA National Championships. Head Coach Jack Fabian, who is leading the preparation process of the highest scaled event of the 2012-2013 season has the experience to know what it takes to lead the charge into such a prominent meet. Also assisting on the U.S. Open Water National Team, Fabian recently traveled to Brazil for a national meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 21 days out of nationals so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to start swimmer pre-taper phase starting tomorrow actually, which means we start getting actually a little bit more rest and a little bit more focus on just speed work and a lot of recovery swimming,â&#x20AC;? Fabian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last 10 to 15 days have actually been pretty rigorous. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working really hard and have had a really complete schedule with really GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW OLIWLQJ VFKHGXOHV DQG WKHQ weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to start transitioning them to more resting start at 20 days and out,â&#x20AC;? he stated. 7KH ODUJH LQĂ X[ RI .6& WDOHQW at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nationals is a welldeserved honor and explanation from Coach Fabian over the accomplishment.

ever, the study doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for possible under-reporting and the different symptoms every athlete experiences while concussed. According to Bob Merrow, the athletic training coordinator at KSC, concussions are a traumatic brain injury, sustained after a forceful bump, jolt or a blow to the head that alters the way in which the brain IXQFWLRQV&RQFXVVLRQVDUHGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW to detect because the symptoms are varied and may show up immediately after the incident or it can show up hours or weeks later. The symptoms include loss of consciousness, headaches, general confusion, fuzzy vision, issues with balance, sensitivity to light and noise, nausea, slow UHDFWLRQ WLPH GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW\ FRQFHQWUDWing as well as amnesia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a major change in the metabolic function of the brain after a concussion. Each athlete has to be looked at differently,â&#x20AC;? Merrow said. Merrow said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see too many concussions per year, around ten, but there has been a major shift in the diagnosis and treatment of concussions. Some athletes may be symptom-free the day after it happens, but another athlete could take two weeks to become free from the symptoms of a concussion. Another KSC athlete, junior Hayley Kenyon, is no stranger to concussions. Kenyon is a forward DQGRXWVLGHPLGĂ&#x20AC;HOGHUIRUWKHZRPenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team and couldn��&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play a few games this past season as a result of a concussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went up for a header, I got an elbow to the back of the head. I landed on my back and I remember it all happening, but I was shaken up when it happened,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trainer started asking me questions and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answering right away. I got up with the help of my teammates

DQG ZDONHG RII Ă&#x20AC;QHÂľ .HQ\RQ VDLG that after a trainer assessed her and gave her some tests to complete, the trainer still thought Kenyon might have gotten a concussion. The following Monday, Kenyon said she started to get headaches and had to sit out for about a week, so she missed a few games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trainers were really helpful. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the hospital; they were right on top of the issue,â&#x20AC;? she said. Kenyon said after, she was timid about going up for headers during a game, but she just had to get over it. Also familiar with concussions is athletic trainer and vice president of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s club rugby team, junior J.J. Desrochers. As a member of a club sport, Desrochers and her teammates donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the luxury of EHLQJDQ1&$$DIĂ&#x20AC;OLDWHGVSRUWDQG what comes along with it--concussion pre-screening tests and assistance from the KSC athletic training staff. While they are required to have trainers at every game, Desrochers said they have to hire EMTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and trainers to be on hand during games and the money to pay these trainers comes from their clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own funds, whereas the assistance and medical care is free for NCAADIĂ&#x20AC;OLDWHG DWKOHWHV 'HVURFKHUV VDLG an EMT needs to be present at every home game in a season (about three or four), and the total cost of hiring WKHFHUWLĂ&#x20AC;HGPHGLFLVDURXQG per season. Rugby is a very physical sport, and Desrochers has had her fair share of injuries playing the high contact game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve personally sprained both my ankles, gotten two concussions, sprained my shoulder and cracked two ribs,â&#x20AC;? she said. Without insurance, any sort of medical bill is the injured rugby playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem. Desrochers said her injuries
