Hospital shooting under review
Layperson considered by president search team By Caroline Roers
program assistant and graduate student in the College of Education, in an email. “What needs to be improved is how we include the discussion of faith and Ignatian spirituality in our conversations of gender and sexuality.” From August to May 2013, Susannah Bartlow, director of the GSRC, conducted an assessment report to find what students need in terms of gender and sexuality work. Bartlow said she found that students need educational help with social justice frameworks,
sexual health and LGBTQ identity. “Generally, a more flexible understanding of gender and gender identity and gender equity (among students) would be really helpful,” Bartlow said. “I like to think of it as more of a literacy issue, for people to be more gender literate.” Colleen Gresk, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences and student employee at the GSRC, said the center can open student minds to better ways of
For more than 100 years, 23 presidents of the Roman Catholic order, the Society of Jesus, have led Marquette. But soon this may not be the case. After the Rev. Scott Pilarz was inaugurated as university president in 2011, the bylaws of Marquette changed to allow a layperson, a non ordained member of the church, to become president of Marquette. Now that Pilarz resigned, the presidential search committee has the opportunity to enact that policy. The search committee announced in a news brief Monday that interviews with qualified Jesuit and layperson semifinalists and finalists will take place in the spring. It hopes to have a president in place for the next academic year. According to the presidential search website, the 24th president will begin his or her term Aug. 25, 2013. John Ferraro, chairman of the presidential search committee and a member of the Board of Trustees, said the search committee is considering lay candidates for the presidency as well as Jesuits. “We are definitely considering the best man or woman to be the 24th president of Marquette University,” Ferraro said. “The world has changed and the Jesuit pool has changed and dwindled and so many of the Jesuit universities have lay presidents so it is a function of where we are in the world.” In the 1960s, Jesuit membership in the U.S. peaked with about 7,000 priests. By 1982, the number diminished to 5,500. Today, there are about 2,500 American Jesuits. This stark decrease led many universities to change their leadership requirements in the past decade. In 2001, trustees at Georgetown University, the country’s oldest Roman Catholic university, selected John Degioia, an alumnus, as its first lay president. He became the first layperson to lead any of the country’s 28 Jesuit colleges and universities. Since Degioia’s inauguration, similar cases sprung

Police stand outside the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin during a lockdown Thursday. Police officers shot and wounded a man inside the hospital, located about five miles off campus, where they had gone to arrest him on a felony warrant, Milwaukee County sheriff’s officials said.
Police investigate case of armed gunman at neonatal care unit By Matt Kulling
The Milwaukee Police Department is still investigating the shooting of a gunman resulting in a two-hour lockdown at Children’s Hospital of
Wisconsin Thursday, a location where many Marquette students perform clinical rotations. The gunman was identified as 22-year-old Ashanti Hendricks, whose girlfriend and baby were being cared for in the neonatal unit on the seventh floor of the building. Hendricks was shot in the wrist while he was trying to flee from MPD officers. Crissy Garcia, a senior in the College of Nursing, was working near the unit when
the shooting occurred. “Many people have been voicing their opinions on the event that occurred, but what they don’t understand is what it feels like to be in the presence of an armed person at the moment,” Garcia said in an email. “Carrying a weapon inside of a hospital is a felony, and people don’t know the background behind a story unless you are there firsthand. I have yet to hear the true series of events being portrayed
clearly on the news, which is frustrating because viewers only get the skewed version.” Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said in a news conference Thursday that a call came in to his department at around noon of an active shooter. “Milwaukee police officers were (at the hospital) conducting a warrant pickup of a guy who they got information was wanted See Hospital, Page 3
Center renews focus on gender, sexuality GSRC seeks to start conversation about Catholic identity By Natalie Wickman
The Gender and Sexuality Resource Center is reflecting on the work it completed during its first year on campus, and it is projecting future efforts while
considering the conflicting opinions about its programs. Marquette’s GSRC was founded in August 2012 to work in three areas pertaining to gender and sexuality: scholarship and research; educational programming; and services and support. The center now consists of a 14-member advisory board, four student staff members, one volunteer and one intern. “People are really starting to talk about issues of gender and sexuality and asking the tough questions,” said Sheraden Bobot, GSRC

MUSG releases gender, sexuality survey Poll finds majority of students unaware of FemSex revocation By Joe Kvartunas
Marquette Student Government released the results of its gender and sexuality survey Thursday, showing a majority of students are either satisfied with or neutral toward the gender and sexuality resources offered by the university. MUSG senators and staff conducted the survey manually during the two-week period from Oct. 21 to Nov.1, collecting 977 responses to questions about gender and sexuality conversations and how the university handled the revocation of its sponsorship of FemSex, a weekly gender and sexuality student workshop geared toward women. The official summary warned that students were not sampled randomly and that the survey “was not necessarily ‘representative.’” While only about 300
respondents, or 28 percent, had heard of FemSex before taking the survey, the majority said they were comfortable with the university’s tone regarding gender and sexuality. “I think we’ve seen that the majority of Marquette students feel very comfortable with issues of gender and sexuality on campus,” said MUSG Executive Vice President Zach Bowman, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences. “They feel like they have resources to discuss those things, and they feel like the university is open to having those discussions. But simultaneously we also see a substantial minority of students who feel the exact opposite on those issues and have concerns about the resources available and Marquette’s openness to those issues.” Of the 977 students surveyed, 15 percent said they felt dissatisfied with Marquette’s openness to discussing gender and sexuality issues on campus. Only 11 percent said they felt dissatisfied with the resources available to students on matters of gender and sexuality. The portion of students who

Between 3:14 and 3:43 a.m., two students reported that unknown person(s) removed their property from their
had heard of FemSex were asked two follow-up questions about how the university handled the closing of the workshop. Half felt that the university was not transparent enough in its reasoning for closing the workshop while 31 percent felt they did not have enough information. When asked whether the university should have revoked sponsorship of FemSex, 41 percent felt that the university was wrong, while 34 percent felt they did not have enough information. Out of women surveyed, 44 percent felt that the university was wrong in closing FemSex, compared to 35 percent of men. The survey was written by offcampus senators Natasha Hansen, a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences and the chair of the Student Life Committee, and Mary McCarthy, a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences. “We found the results of the survey compelling, and it’s clear that a substantial amount of students have concerns about conversations regarding gender and sexuality on campus,” Hansen said in an email.
Hansen said the Student Life Committee has not decided if anything will be done to follow up on the results of the survey, but is “exploring the various options.” Bowman said MUSG will continue working on gender and sexuality issues on campus, but did not state any specific plans. The amount of respondents is significantly larger than MUSG normally gets with manually conducted surveys. According to information provided by Jon Dooley, senior associate dean of student development and MUSG’s advisor, four of the most recent manually conducted surveys showed significantly less student participation. An alcohol policy survey conducted over the course of two weeks early last semester had 187 respondents. Another survey conducted in October 2012 about the University Core of Common Studies had 212 respondents. A survey about dining conducted over 10 days during the spring of 2012 had 389 respondents, and a survey about concerts conducted in November 2011 had 381 respondents.

GSRC: Events to be held to discuss gender diversity interacting and supporting people of all different sexual orientations and gender identities. “For people outside of the LGBT community, I think there’s a sense that if you’re tolerant of the LGBT community, then you’re part of the solution and there’s nothing more you can or should do to make the campus more tolerant,” Gresk said. As it continues to adapt to campus, the center experiences some challenges, including a need for more staff members and in-depth data about students, employees said. Since its inception, the GSRC partnered to receive funding from and do work with different departments across the university, including the GSA, Mission & Ministry, Campus Ministry, Intercultural Engagement and the Counseling Center. Due to the center’s focus on human sexuality, questions concerning how the GSRC fits with Marquette’s Catholic and
Jesuit mission have been raised by some alumni and students, especially concerning the now-defunct FemSex workshop. Marquette Student Government leaders told university administration leaders Marquette’s goal to “care for the whole person” would not allow them to sponsor FemSex. “While we all agree that we are damaged by forms of injustice, having conversations about fairness and equality is never easy and has never been throughout history,” said William Welburn, associate provost for diversity and inclusion, in an email. “It is my hope that through resources like the GSRC, we will be able to approach those conversations with civility.” Bartlow noted that an important part of Catholic identity is to care for everyone exactly as they are. “I think there’s a stereotype about what ‘Catholic’ means,” Bartlow said. “(Individuals should) really get to know (about Catholicism),

During National Coming Out Week Oct. 7-11, the GSRC worked with the Division of Student Affairs to offer Gender Diversity training workshops for students. “I’m excited for the Gender Diversity trainings we facilitated last month, and I am optimistic that this program will expand and hopefully turn into a series,” Bobot said.
“But this is also something that is just in the brainstorming stage, so nothing is for sure.” Welburn echoed Bobot’s optimism and said he is looking forward to whatever the center’s future plans are. “I feel very good about the presence of the (GSRC) as the right thing for Marquette to do, and for any university to do,” Welburn said. “My only real frustration comes from knowing that we have much work ahead of us. I am very optimistic about what the future holds for the (GSRC) as a space that fosters scholarship and learning on matters of gender and sexuality within Marquette’s mission as a Catholic Jesuit university.”

Hospital: Nursing student shares experience at Children’s Hospital on a warrant for felony possession of a firearm and was here at the hospital,” Clarke said in the news conference. “They proceeded to the neonatal unit, the seventh floor of Children’s Hospital. It’s where sick infants and children are taken care of.” Clarke said officers identified the man who was holding a baby at the time and informed Hendricks he was under arrest. Hendricks put the baby down and fled. Clarke also confirmed officers recovered Hendricks’ handgun, and the mother and her baby are fine. MPD’s Critical Incident Review Board is conducting an after-action evaluation of how it handled the situation that could possibly result in changes in policy and procedure. The Children’s Hospital is also reviewing its own policies in the wake of the shooting. Garcia said she believes the situation was handled properly considering the circumstances. “Could things have happened differently?” Garcia said. “Maybe, but who is to say. It is not like we have time to sit down and ponder these things when someone is armed around innocent children families and employees.” Hendricks has multiple felony convictions, mostly for drugs, dating back to 2009, according to court records. He was convicted on drug charges twice in 2009 and again in 2011. In December 2012, he was charged again with possession of marijuana, second offense, fleeing an officer and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

A doctor crosses 92nd Street in front of the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin during the lockdown Thursday morning following the arrest of a gunman.
Hendricks pled guilty to the gun charge in September and was supposed to be sentenced two weeks ago. When he failed to appear for his hearing, a warrant was issued for his arrest. While police investigate the possible causes of the incident, Garcia said events like the one at the hospital can happen when parents react to having a sick child.
“At any moment, a frustrated parent can react to the everyday stressors that come along with having a sick child, and as a staff member who spends a lot of time at the bedside of my patients in the presence of stressed family, it is important to me to feel secure and safe in my work environment,” Garcia said. “Every person responds to stress differently and can take
it out on different people. No one ever knows what could be a result of that stress and no one knows when the stress reaction will occur, and that is why it is important to take every safety precaution possible.” “I am proud of how the Children’s staff reacted to what happened, and think that the organization as a whole did and continue to do everything
possible to put patient safety first,” Garcia continued. “In the end, the only person who got hurt was the person breaking the law, and in my opinion, that is the success story.” Hendricks is now in the custody of MPD after being treated for his injuries at Froedtert Hospital, and is in Milwaukee County Jail pending further investigation.

Layperson: MU may join 7 other Jesuit universities led by non-priests

up around the country. Seven of the 28 schools in the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities have lay presidents. In addition, 63 percent of the 194 U.S. Catholic colleges that belong to the Association of Catholic colleges and universities are led by laypeople. Interim University President the Rev. Robert A. Wild said the Board of Trustees deliberated for many years before deciding to amend the bylaws in 2011. In doing so, the board specified that, although the president does not need to by a Jesuit, he or she must be of the Roman Catholic faith. While the bylaw was changed, Ferraro said the presence of a leader of the Roman Catholic faith remains an important
characteristic of the university president. “The Jesuit mission, the ability to lead a religious institution, the Catholic identity has to be in the DNA of the president whether they are Jesuit or lay – that will not change – cannot change,” he said. “For me, one of the most important – absolutely, if not at the top of the list for me, personally – is making sure that leader has the Jesuit mission and Catholic identity in the DNA of the person.” The idea of having a nonJesuit in office received varied responses from students and campus Jesuits. The Rev. Joseph Mueller, an associate professor of theology and director of graduate studies, said lay leadership differs from Jesuit leadership because of the basic
difference in faith. “Marquette and the Jesuits would have to make their relationships even more explicit than it is now,” Mueller said. “The president would have to maintain good relationships with Jesuit leaders, as well as with the Jesuit community here at Marquette.” Mueller said if a layperson is sworn into office, he or she should take the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola as an important guide for his or her life, prayer and professional work. Though there are differences in some aspects of Jesuit and Roman Catholic leadership, Mary O’Keefe, a freshman in the College of Arts & Sciences, said she thinks having a lay president would add to the depth of the university and give it
I think change is good and even though there are differences between a Jesuit leader and a lay leader, the differences aren’t necessarily bad.” Mary O’Keefe, freshman, College of Arts & Sciences a new perspective. “I would have no issue with it,” she said. “I think change is good and even though there are differences between a Jesuit leader and a lay leader, the differences aren’t necessarily bad.” On top of the possibility of a layperson leading the university, the idea of having a female president is also on some students’ minds, including O’Keefe’s. “I think it would be great to have a woman president,” she said. “I think that would
actually give an even greater different perspective than a layperson just because males and females see things so differently.” Mueller put an emphasis on hiring the best available candidate, regardless of gender. Maxwell Havlik, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, agreed. “I guess it doesn’t matter who is president based on religion or gender,” Haylik said. “I think it is more important what they can do while they are in office to improve the university and create change.”

Marquee picks the tastiest new BBQ spots in the city
By Brian Keogh
All across the nation Americans take pride in barbecue. But in Milwaukee you hear more about brats and cheese curds than their comfort food companions, ribs, pulled pork or some delicious corn bread. So to help narrow the scope of Milwaukee’s best, we looked at three of the newer barbecue establishments in the city. At these haunts, down home cooking is king, smoking meat is a craft and the perfect sauce is an art form.
Big Daddy’s Brew and Que
5800 N. Bayshore Drive, Glendale This BBQ restaurant, the newest restaurant of the selections, recently opened in February after undergoing renovations. The goal of the Brew and Que is to bring Milwaukee an authentic taste of the South. It’s renovations give it a homey, comfortable feel with old Winchester ammo boxes to house the restaurant’s wide variety of sauces. But it’s not all about the sauces for Big Daddy’s Brew and Que’s Executive Smokemaster, Zachary Rosen, for whom barbecuing began as a hobby that bordered on obsession. “The key to a barbecue is slow and low. I’ve taken briskets and grilled them 14, 15 hours in my
backyard or driveway and sit out there all night with a case of beer and stoking the fire every couple of hours” Rosen said. Rosen’s passion for barbecue ensures Big Daddy’s always has the items on its menu in stock. It also led to what makes Big Daddy’s stand out in the Milwaukee barbecue scene. “The smoked tenderloin really sets us apart,” Rosen said. “It’s smoked two to three hours and comes out beautiful perfect medium rare and if word got out how good this is... it’d be over” It’s an item rarely seen on barbecue menus in Milwaukee. “We’re just trying to do something a little bit different and a little bit better than everyone else out there,” Rosen said. Big Daddy’s Brew and Que is located in Bayshore mall near the iPic movie theater. The comfortable atmosphere and massive televisions make this a solid choice to watch the Packers, Bears or Marquette game and the classic southern cooking makes a great way to fight off the Milwaukee cold.
124 W. National Ave, Milwaukee The thing about Ashley’s cooking that makes it stand out from other Milwaukee barbecue restaurants is its method and the history behind it. “We cook with fire.” Jazzmon Hughes, the grandson in this family enterprise, explained. “We actually have a real barbecue pit that we cook in that my grandfather built back in the ‘60s that’s actually one of the only functioning indoor barbecue pits in Milwaukee county because you can’t build them anymore in Milwaukee county. But ours was
grandfathered in because it’s old; it’s the real deal.” The second location of this Milwaukee barbecue staple opened last year, but the new BBQ joint marks new territory for the local restaurant. The new branch includes added seating and a dine-in environment, where the original location remains strictly takeout. While Ashley’s has all the ribs and pulled pork of any barbecue restaurant, its sandwiches are especially noteworthy with “The Prince,” a monster sandwich made with steak and lamb, that stands apart from the rest. “[The Prince] is something I came up with and my dad likes to take credit for, but it’s a great sandwich. We almost have a fanclub for it; people eat it religiously” Hughes said. Ashley’s Que also provides entertainment with Milwaukee guitarist Evan Christian playing at the restaurant Tuesday and Friday nights.
332 N. Milwaukee St, Milwaukee Smoke Shack over in the 3rd Ward finds its home in one of the Ward’s oldest buildings, the cozy and rustic space went through several generations of bars near the intersection, but after being transformed in 2011, the building gives a warm feel with a small patio and down home charm. The Smoke Shack puts a special emphasis on sustainability and the ethical use of meat in the barbecue. “We do all of our own cutting and bleeds inside of the restaurant so that we are able to use as much of the animal as possible,” Jenna Puffer, a manager
The favorite dish at Big Daddy’s Brew & Que, located in Bayshore Mall, is a slow-cooked smoked tenderloin.

Smoke Shack, located in the Third Ward, is the best vegetarian BBQ option.
at the Smoke Shack, said. “Just because we want to be humane, responsible with the meat we are using. And all of the meats we do use are all hormone free, antibiotic free, and range free so the quality is really high.” The care taken is reflected in the ribs at Smoke Shack, the most popular item on the menu. “We have spare ribs and baby back ribs,” Puffer said. “They’re both pork and they come out of the smoker everyday at 5 o’clock.” The restaurant offers five different barbecue sauces to dip, dunk and smother your din-
ner and offers the best choice for any vegetarians still looking for the flavor of barbecue. The menu includes a roasted portobello mushroom with the signature sauce and a “BBQ Seitan Sammich” with arugula, red onion and, again, that delicious house sauce. Whatever kind of barbecue you want one of these three ought to be able to supply it. So next time you’re thinking of lighting up the grill in this cold, save yourself the pain and head out for barbecue done right.
Ashley’s Que is known for “The Prince,” a huge steak and lamb sandwich.

What we forget about the Beat generation
Erin Heffernan The newest movie about the Beat generation takes its name from a famous quote often attributed to William Faulkner. “Kill your darlings” the writer said advising writers to cut out (or down) the language, subjects and literary tricks they love to become better, more truthful writers. The movie uses the phrase to clever effect, both recalling the famous advice and hinting at the story of a murder involving the biggest figures of the movement: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs. But with this release marking just one of four movies on the Beats in the three years, isn’t it high time to kill the incredibly hyped darling the Beats themselves have become? Now don’t get me wrong, I have been affected by meaningful passages in the movement’s seminal works including Burroughs’ “Naked Lunch,” Ginsberg’s “Howl and Other Selected Poems” and, the most enduringly popular of them all, Kerouac’s “On the Road.” The Beats contribution to literature and poetry is clear, with those works becoming some of the most influential and widely read of the mid to late 20th century and standing for values that predicated the 1960s social movement and waves of countercultural
moments that followed. There is lasting pull to the Beats hip New York scene— the air of rebellion, the sexual freedom in acts and orientation, the smokefilled jazz clubs, wild nights of drug experimentation. Hell there’s even a certain romance about their glasses, the way they rolled their pants and all those cigarettes smoked hunched over a typewriter. So to some, my raising objections will seem like graffiti-ing hallowed halls, but I think if the Beats spirit really lives on at all, they would appreciate a certain spirit of vandalism, even with their own legacy. I hoped that the recent crop of studio films could shed a more critical light onto the lives of the Beats to avoid those romantic visions they tend to capture in the popular imagination. The resurgence in film began in 2010 with “Howl,” starring James Franco as Allen Ginsberg in the famous censorship trial over his most popular poem of the same name. Then came “On the Road” in 2012 with a star-studded cast including Kirsten Dunst and Kristen Stewart adapting Kerouac’s 1957 road novel. Now there are two new films, “Kill Your Darlings”, which I saw in theaters last week, and “Big Sur,” which came out on limited release earlier this month (and may not come to Milwaukee at all) and follows another autobiographical work of Kerouac. The main thing the movies, and in turn the popular vision of the Beats, get wrong is the extremity of the moral, physical and cultural statement the Beats made. In many ways, the depictions excuse the real challenges made by the authors by both watering them down and romanticizing their flaws.

“Kill Your Darlings” stars Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan as Allen Ginsberg and his college love interest.
The first mistake I think people make about the Beats is their perpetual youth. Though Ginsberg was in his mid-thirties in the censorship trial depicted in of “Howl,” James Franco is youthful and handsome. Similarly, “Kill Your Darlings” decides to focus on the college versions of the writers, before any work was really completed by the artists. A.O. Scott from the New York Times went so far as to describe them as a sort of Beat generation “muppet babies.” The argument made in a wonderful article in the Atlantic by Jordan Larson made the point that this focus on youth cuts what the Beats stood for into their old age, making them into simply a young persons’ idol. Similarly, “On the Road” is seen as a sort of wanderlust story for the early twenty-somethings, unattached and searching for self. But in the autobiographical account Kerouac already left his wife before going on the trip, dropped out of college and was far from the unformed youth making mistakes for the first time that the popular conception, and
the 2010 film adaptation, makes it seem. More than making the Beats forever young, the biographies and adaptations do everything in their power to frame the artists as role models for cities, hip professions and Urban Outfitters stores of today. But some of the attitudes of the Beats really shouldn’t be emulated. The characters in “On the Road” are misogynistic, passing women back in forth like a beach ball and treating them as objects and idiots. Sal, the story’s narrator, worships his companion Dean Moriarty, despite (and in fact because) he is an outlaw who steals, abandons his wife and child, cheats on his partners without apology, takes him to a brothel in Mexico and is only redeemed by a sort of Western charm and masculinity. Sal is a young man who left his wife, is partially funded by relatives and finds sexual exploits and quirky stories of Americans parties, jazz clubs and drunken adventures across the country. There are undeniably beautiful passages in the mix and a
profound feeling of freedom and youth in writing that crackles and burns on the page, but when you romanticize the journey and make Kerouac some sort of hero and avatar for what your personal image, you go too far. Kerouac died at 47 after years of alcoholism. William S. Burroughs was found his artistic self after killing his own wife in a shooting game. Ginsberg was forced to spend time in a mental hospital for his art. Looking at the realities so often ignored in the lives of these men doesn’t have to end your admiration, but it should give us all a more nuanced, complex understanding of what they wrote and what they meant. You may realize that they aren’t the perfect models for your teenage rebellion, but are rather men who had to face consequences for living lives that never failed to “burn, burn, burn.”

Best Moments in Coen Brothers Movie Music Llewyn Davis
The Big Lebowski The Man in Me
Both making a perfect set-up for this classic’s bowling alley title sequence and accompanying the Dude in a post-punch vision flying over L.A., this Bob Dylan song will forever remind us the Dude abides.
Hotel California (Spanish Version)
What a perfect introdcution to the charachter of Jesus. The plum-clad, bowling-ball licking, nemesis of The Dude is given a Spanish rendition of what is still an essentially Dudesque, California song.
Though the Coen’s latest film following a ‘60s New York folk musician has yet to come to Milwaukee, the soundtrack is fantastic with beautifully arranged folk music from Oscar Issac, Marcus Mumford, The Punch Brothers and Justin Timberlake along with an unreleased version of Bob Dylan’s “Farewell” and a track from the musician the film is loosly based on, Dave Van Ronk. In honor or the release we collected our favorite moments of Coen brother music greatness. And they use great music almost as much as John Goodman.
Somebody to Love
The key to the film rests in an ingenious use of this Jefferson Airplane song. The lyrics are used to find a profound meaning.
A Serious Man
O Brother, Where Art Thou? Man of Constant Sorrow
Every time the Soggy Bottom Boys sing their infectious bluegrass hit is a joy. The song became an unlikely hit in the real world, propelling the allaround masterful album to sell more than 7 million copies. This movie is the real testament to what Coen brothers soundtracks can do, setting off a bluegrass revival we’re still living today.
A brutal scene of Albert Finney’s character gunning down everything in sight is set off by an eerie phonograph version of “Danny Boy.” The moments before the violence show the man transfixed by the music like the silence before quite a storm.

Students should speak out on rising costs of education
MUSG survey results open lines of discussion with admin
Infographic by Ellery Fryemail@example.com
Our view: MUSG’s decision to undertake a survey focused on FemSex was a good first step in bringing the issue to a more transparent and inclusive discussion. According to preliminary results from the Marquette Student Government Fall 2013 Student Gender and Sexuality Survey, only a select group of informed students have an opinion on the FemSex workshop. FemSex, a student-led workshop that focuses on female sexuality and reproduction, was deemed by the university to be inconsistent with Marquette’s Catholic mission. Marquette first revoked sponsorship of FemSex in February 2013. Apparently the revocation wasn’t clear enough, as the university had to instruct the Honors Program to pull sponsorship again in September. According to a Nov. 12 Tribune article, the university found many problems with the program including the language it used, citing some as misogynistic. This explanation never specified what in the FemSex syllabus was misogynistic or contrary to Marquette’s mission. Also, Claire Van Fossen, one of the founding members of FemSex at Marquette, said in a submission to the Tribune earlier this year neither she nor any other FemSex members were included in the decision making process. MUSG’s survey asked students if they had heard about the FemSex program. An overwhelming 72 percent said “no.” Of the 28 percent who did hear about the program, 50 percent believed “Marquette has (not) been transparent and forthcoming with information related to the decision to not sponsor FemSex.” About 19 percent believed it was transparent, and 31 percent said there was not enough information to answer “yes” or “no.” Of the past four surveys administered by MUSG, the Gender and Sexuality Survey recorded the most respondents. During the two weeks the survey was administered, MUSG surveyed a total
of 977 students. The next highest number of survey responses was in spring 2012, when MUSG surveyed 389 students about campus dining. By reaching out to a larger portion of the student body, MUSG displayed its commitment to being a legitimate, representative voice for the student body. Taking these results into consideration, it seems as a whole, students did not know or did not care about the debate over FemSex. Of those who were aware, a majority of students believed Marquette could have been more transparent and did not have the right to revoke sponsorship of the program. MUSG should not debunk the issue based on these results. While it may appear that students do not care about FemSex, the data shows that certain portions of the study body do care. Religious affiliation of the respondents produced varied results: 29 percent of Catholics, 22 percent of other Christian groups, 25 percent of those from other world religions, 10 percent of those without religious affiliation and 22 percent of those who preferred not to respond agreed with the university decision. The largest difference was among those without religious affiliation – 80 percent disagreed with the decision. The nexthighest disagreement rating was among those who preferred not to identify their religious affiliation, at 56 percent disagreement, followed by those from other world religions at 50 percent. Although the number of respondents belonging to some of these religious groups is small, religious affiliation clearly plays a role. This editorial is not an effort to pass judgment about the university’s decision to revoke sponsorship of FemSex; rather, it is a call for the university to remain transparent and open about its decision. The best way to achieve this would be for MUSG to pass legislation, using the survey data, recommending university administration have an open discussion about its decisions regarding FemSex.
Helen Hillis Students around the world continue to protest the rising costs and changes in education. Last week in Sweden, students took to the streets to protest against what they refer to as the “privatization of higher education.” The proposal would change ownership of state and public universities to privately owned institutions. In Bulgaria, students and others chained themselves to Sofia University, protesting against several social service related issues, including the cost of education. In Italy, protesters took action against university budget cuts made by Prime Minister Enrico Letta. Letta proposed these cuts as a way to adhere to European Union guidelines; however, students fiercely oppose the proposal. Oftentimes students’ actions are linked to another cause, but in many cases students are passionately focused solely on reforming the cost of education Last year, students in Quebec made international headlines when they demonstrated against a proposed raise in tuition from $2,168 to $3,793 per year. For five months, thousands of students took an active role in protesting against the proposed changes through occupations, demonstrations, online organization and more. More than 2,500 people were arrested in the first three months. While studying in Chile last spring, nearly every Thursday was designated as a day of protest in the city center. Tens of thousands of students, both of high school and university age, flooded the streets. Marching to the presidential
palace, they chanted passionate messages of frustration toward the Chilean government’s little education funding and development of public universities. Although the protests were somewhat of an incident-less carnival, there were occasional violent outbursts, particularly toward the end of the marches. Students were willing to risks their lives and their freedom to make a point to the Chilean officials. In fact, four Chilean student protest leaders won seats in the Chilean congress this week. It is inspiring to see so many people deeply committed to a cause. According to Business Insider, the average cost of one year at a university in the United States is $13,856, averaged between public and private universities. This figure comes out to 26.9 percent of our nation’s average household income. Student loan debt in the United States is estimated at $1 trillion. Marquette’s tuition rises every year. I hear complaints and frustration, anger and annoyance, but I never see change. Instead, students in the United States remain relatively silent. With the exception of protests at the University of California’s Santa Clara and Berkeley campuses in 2009, there is little movement to challenge rising tuition costs. The issue is not whether the value of education is worth the price tag; the issue is the lack of initiative students take in challenging these changes. If we are not going to take an active role in challenging the norms placed upon us, then we have no right to complain. Taking action against an injustice does not need to mean chaining ourselves to the front doors of Zilber Hall or filling Wisconsin Avenue with the entire student body. Thoughtful, productive solutions or alternatives are vital to change. So long as students in the United States fail to step up, tuition costs will continue to rise.

JFK’s words on campaign finance and TV ring true today
Eric Oliver In an interview with TV Guide 50 years ago, John F. Kennedy discussed the dangers of television and politicians. He said television is a strong tool, but when it falls into the wrong hands or is used deceptively, it can be incredibly damning. He urged Americans not to use television as a means of slander. Half a century later, JFK’s words still ring true. Television is an incredibly strong
medium, and when it is used to promote slander and negativity, it is incredibly influential. A fairly common type of study that shows the influence of negative television advertisements involves interviewing people who just voted and asking them what influenced their decision to vote for one candidate over the others. They are then asked how they feel about attack ads. The most common reply is that respondents don’t let the ads affect them. However, most of the time the taglines from the attack ads are what the voter remembers when he or she steps into the voting booth. The negativity that defines modern television must stop. What happened to the grand ole days of promoting the issues and what you would do to address them? This country has come a long way from the stump top debates of Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. This is what makes JFK’s warning so eerie.
“It can be abused by demigods, by appeals to emotions and prejudice and ignorance,” Kennedy said. He continued to talk about the power of the public relations expert. “Political shows, like quiz shows, can be fixed — and sometimes are.” After his warnings on the dangers of television, he touched on another highly relevant topic of discussion – spending. An unfortunate truth of our electoral landscape is that money wins elections. If you outspend your opponent, you have more influence. According to a New York Times article about the 2012 election and the money spent by both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Obama raised $1,042.6 million and spent $985.7 million while Mitt Romney raised $992.5 million and spent $992 million. The amount of money that goes into an election is mind boggling, and unfortunately, the candidates are using that money in a critical fight over airtime on TV. There are 24 hours in a day, and if a
candidate can buy most of them, he or she will be able to influence the general public, especially those who lack education. I assure you JFK didn’t know the affect his words would have. There was no way he would be able to predict how true his words would be today. The amount of money spent on elections and the influence negative campaign ads have on the American public is troubling. Many European countries have laws that ban the ads, but because of their effectiveness, there is little chance these types of laws would pass in the U.S. So we have to do the next best thing: We have to stress availability of information. We can’t make the American public want to become informed, but if we put the resources out there and stress the issues, the negativity that JFK talked about 50 years ago will cease to exist.

Buckeyes shut down MUBB
Golden Eagles shoot 19 percent and score least points since 2000 By Trey Killian
The first half of Marquette’s 52-35 loss to Ohio State was an ugly one, but the Golden Eagles had to feel the Buckeyes were right where they wanted them. The teams combined to shoot just 13 of the 55 from the field (23.6 percent) in the first 20 minutes, but Marquette was hanging tough with the No. 10 team in the country. Marquette lost and retook the lead four times and matched Ohio State with 10 points in the paint. Davante Gardner battled the big, physical Buckeye frontcourt, knocking down two field goals and going a perfect 4-for4 from the free throw line. Junior forward Steve Taylor Jr. did his best Dennis Rodman impression with eight rebounds in the first 10 minutes he played. Gardner’s and Marquette’s day seemed to turn, however, when the big man was whistled for an offensive foul with 3:01 left in the first half. It was his second foul of the game and coach Buzz Williams quickly subbed in freshman forward Deonte Burton. Ohio State took the lead with 18:44 left in the game and without the toughness in the frontcourt it had enjoyed in the first half, Marquette’s offense sputtered. Gardner attempted just one field goal for the remainder of the contest, an uncharacteristic jumper that cut the Ohio State lead to 31-24 with 13:40 to play. Burton failed to score, missing two field goals, and Taylor recorded just one more rebound early in the half. “I think the ball was too stagPhoto by Valeria Cardenasfirstname.lastname@example.org nant,” Williams said. “We never Ohio State forward Laquinton Ross drives to the rim against Davante Gardner and Steve Taylor Jr. Ross didn’t score, but the Buckeyes won 52-35. were able to create angles off of penetration, (or) create an- game completely out of reach. giving us the shots we were tak- spective squads during the con- may be especially dependent on gles off of quick ball and body Senior guard Jake Thomas and ing.

An open letter to Jake Thomas: Just relax, man
Patrick Leary Mr. Thomas, My name is Patrick Leary. You probably wouldn’t remember this, but we had statistics together last fall. Wasn’t that class boring? Anyway, I’m writing to share some concerns with you that I heard from all corners of the Marquette basketball community. Saturday, you played 29 minutes and
didn’t make a field goal. You went 0-for-7 from the field and missed all six of your threes. Sorry to bring up bad memories, but I had to set some context. I have seen tons of tweets and heard numerous comments wondering why you start, if you can shoot and why you play at all. I want to make it very clear that I’m not here to heap further criticism onto your shoulders. As Ron Burgundy would say, I’m just here to read the news. I do want to ask you to do one thing though, as you continue on in your important senior season. I would love to see you relax out there. Marquette fans don’t hate you, even though they sometimes make it seem that way. However, because
you were touted as the best shooter Marquette has had since Steve Novak, fans have high expectations. Shooting 3-for-13 this season from beyond the arc doesn’t satisfy the short leash fans have for you. However, any sort of success can change that. Think about Vander Blue. In 2011-12, he was the most maligned player on the roster. He couldn’t finish at the rim and frequently played out of control and sloppy. Last season changed that. He led Marquette in scoring with 14.8 points per game and made clutch shot after clutch shot in important late season victories. For some time, the entire fan base forgot about its Vander angst and lauded Blue as the team’s hero.
Marquette wants the same thing for you, Jake. If you started heating up and shooting 40 percent from three-point range, all would be forgiven. Remember in 2010-11, when you played for South Dakota, and you scored 40 points and shot 10for-16 from three against Chicago State. That’s the real Jake Thomas. You shot 41 percent from distance that year. We know you’re capable. I can say that I want to see nothing more from an individual Marquette player than to see you succeed this season. Tuesday, you showed us you could, in fact, make shots. You sank three shots from beyond the arc in the first 10 minutes of the second half against Grambling State.
You even started taking heat check shots. If a Jake Thomas heat check could become a regular occurrence, Marquette basketball would benefit immensely. So Jake, my message to you is this: relax and shoot like you’re knocking down jumpers in practice. Marquette fans may say bad things about you on Twitter, but really, they want nothing more than to see you live up to your potential. I believe in you Jake. Go prove them wrong. Sincerely, Patrick Leary Patrick Leary is a junior in the College of Communication. Email him at email@example.com. Follow him on Twittter @patrickkleary.
Second-seeded women bounced from College Cup Western Michigan comes into Valley Fields and wins 1-0 By Kyle Doubrava
All things must come to an end, but the Marquette women’s soccer
team wasn’t anticipating its season would end this soon. Western Michigan stunned Marquette 1-0 Friday at Valley Fields in the first round of the College Cup, bringing the Golden Eagles’ spectacular season to a screeching halt. Marquette had an ongoing 13-game winning streak and had not lost at home in 21 matches, but the Broncos were persistent
enough to force the upset. Junior Aubrey Sudomier fought off three defenders on a breakaway in the 84th minute and slipped a shot past Marquette junior goalkeeper Sofie Schunk for the game-winner. The stars had aligned for the Golden Eagles to make a deep run in the tournament, given their success at home and momentum from
winning the Big East Championship, but all that remains is a premature departure. “You’re hoping you’re able to go further,” coach Markus Roeders said. “At the end of the day it comes down to winning games, and tonight we weren’t able to do so. This is extremely tough obviously because we didn’t win tonight and we didn’t
get to advance.” Marquette had several opportunities on goal, especially in the second half. Senior defender Katie Hishmeh had a shot that deflected off the right post in the 65th minute that nearly gave the Golden Eagles the advantage. In the 75th minute, senior midfielder Maegan Kelly received a crisp feed from freshman Liz Bartels, but her attempt was saved. The team was not accustomed to trailing late in matches, so the added pressure resulted in some patches of nervous scrambling. “I think it’s what you love about the game, but it’s also what makes the game extremely difficult,” Roeders said. “All it takes is one golden shot, and we obviously didn’t get that shot tonight.” The Golden Eagles are now 413-3 at Valley Fields over the past four years. The defensive-minded Western Michigan team was able to earn its 12th shutout of the season as Marquette was blanked for the first time since Aug. 23. Even after its sixth consecutive College Cup and 12th overall, Marquette has still never advanced past the Sweet 16. It’s now 7-4-1 in first round games. The team will try to review film to see where breakdowns occurred, but it will also take some time to simply reflect on the loss. Players and coaches were hard-pressed to find words to boost the team’s morale. “There’s not a whole lot you can say right now,” Roeders said. “Nobody has words right now that’s going to make everyone else feel better. I think you just take a couple of moments and realize that one game might be season-ending, but it’s not defining of who they are and what the program is all about.” The loss is especially unfortunate for the team’s eight seniors, who certainly didn’t want their season to come to an end at Valley Fields. The seniors combined for 75 points (24 goals and 27 assists), slightly more than half of the team total of 147. “It’s tough for our eight seniors,” Roeders said. “They have done such an outstanding job for us throughout their career, and they had a incredible season this year. I think they put our program on a level we’ve been at before but not quite as high as we have been this season.” The Golden Eagles will next play in the spring in a series of exhibition matches. The schedule typically begins in March and ends in late April.
Women upset No. 25 Vandy
Mitchell’s team erases 14-point first half deficit in road win By Jacob Born
With 2:02 left on the clock, junior guard Arlesia Morse had the ball on the right side of the court. She pulled up and took a jump shot. The ball went through the hoop to give Marquette’s women’s basketball team a 74-73 lead. Marquette (3-0) never trailed for the rest of the game and defeated No. 25 Vanderbilt (2-1) 82-77. The victory pushed Marquette to No. 29 in the rankings, while Vanderbilt fell to No. 33. The Golden Eagles and Commodores spent most of the game battling it out, but Vanderbilt tried to get rid of the Golden Eagles heading into halftime. With just 35 seconds left in the half, Vanderbilt built a 14-point lead and led by 11 when the buzzer sounded. They had all the momentum heading into the half. But Marquette wasn’t having any of it. The Golden Eagles stormed out in the second half with a 9-0 run to cut the lead to two. Vanderbilt tried Photo by Valeria Cardenasfirstname.lastname@example.org to pull away again, but Marquette continued to chip away at the lead. Junior guard Christine Bigica scored 11 points in the win at Vanderbilt. With five minutes left in the game, Marquette tied it up at 67.

Bond Squad locks up share of title Volleyball edges Seton Hall, sweeps St. John’s on crucial road trip By Patrick Leary
The Marquette women’s volleyball team (21-5, 13-1 Big East) clinched a share of the Big East title last weekend, going on the road and knocking off Seton Hall Friday and St. John’s Sunday. For coach Bond Shymansky, the title was the product of hard work and dedication from his staff and players during his five-year tenure. Even so, he isn’t satisfied and wants his team to finish the job. “We’re still at that important distinction of saying we have a share of the title,” Shymansky said. “That’s honestly not one of our goals. We feel like we have to come out this weekend to truly realize the goal of being outright champs.” The penultimate step in Marquette’s journey to a share of the regular season title took place Friday against Seton Hall in New Jersey. The Pirates battled the Golden Eagles for five hard sets, but Marquette emerged with its 12th victory of the conference season. No set was decided by more than five points in the 20-25, 25-23, 25-21, 24-26, 15-11 contest. “Every year we go out there, we end up going five sets,” Shymansky said. “It’s like death and taxes: an inevitability. It usually goes down the same way.” The Pirates kept the match close by outhitting the Golden Eagles .285 to .261 and getting a tripledouble (14 kills, 48 assists and 11 digs) from junior setter Shelbey Manthorpe. The Hall also got 17 kills apiece from junior outside hitter Stacey Manthorpe and freshman outside hitter Danielle Schroeder. Freshman outside hitter Autumn Bailey led Marquette with 20 kills, but hit just .245. Junior right side hitter Lindsey Gosh was much more efficient, notching 15 kills while hitting .406.
“This is part of having a young team and it’s part of having a long season,” Shymansky said. “Any way you can win on the road is a good win.” Marquette righted the ship Sunday afternoon in New York when it swept St. John’s 25-23, 25-16, 25-23. Shymansky was impressed with how his team played motivated volleyball after nearly letting Friday’s match slip away. “We were glad to rebound well against St. John’s at their place on Sunday,” he said. “It’s always tough when you’re playing someone on senior night. There’s a lot of emotion that goes into that. Finishing out a 3-0 victory there was really good for our group.” Bailey led the Golden Eagles in kills yet again Sunday with 18, but her efficiency remained roughly the same (.240). Redshirt freshman middle hitter Meghan Niemann played the role of efficient hitter for Marquette Sunday, as she racked up 10 kills on just 14 swings and hit .643. The Golden Eagles were able to neutralize Big East leading hitter Karin Palgutova, who had 16 kills in the first matchup between the two teams a week prior. The sophomore outside hitter had just six kills and hit .107. Shymansky thought his team did a great job grasping the significance of securing the win. “Though it doesn’t feel like a championship-caliber match, it’s still a championship-caliber moment,” Shymansky said. “The adjustment really happened between the ears.” With just two games to go, Marquette can clinch the outright Big East regular season title Friday with a victory over second place Xavier. The Golden Eagles will wrap up the 2013 conference campaign on senior night Saturday when Butler comes to town. “That senior group is great,” Shymansky said. “They ought to have tons of pride for the long-term process of what we’ve been able to build. It’s been a slow but steady climb to the top of the league. They should feel like they are a huge, foundational part of that.”
Men’s soccer wins first-ever Big East Championship Team beats Butler, DePaul to claim No. 9 seed in College Cup
By Andrew Dawson
When the final whistle blew Sunday, the scoreboard read 3-2 and the Marquette men’s soccer team became the 2013 Big East Tournament champion for the first time in program history, earning it an automatic bid in the NCAA Tournament. Since joining the conference in 2005, the Golden Eagles never made an appearance in the Big East Tournament final, but on their first try, they won it all. It was not an easy road to the final as they first had to go through a tough sixth-seeded Butler team that was riding a two-game win streak coming into the match. Both teams put on an offensive
showcase Friday, forcing each side to make numerous saves. Redshirt junior goalkeeper Charlie Lyon’s eight saves were the most he made in a single game all season. Despite the high shot totals, the game was scoreless after regulation, but in the 98th minute, senior forward Adam Lysak rebounded freshman midfielder Louis Bennett II’s deflected shot and slammed the golden goal home. The strike cleared the benches and sent the team into hysteria. “It was obviously a great feeling,” redshirt sophomore defender Axel Sjoberg said after the match. “It was a great goal. Everyone’s hyped and really excited to go to the finals.” After Marquette struggled against the tournament’s lowestseeded side, playing any team in the final seemed like a tough task, especially if Georgetown was the opponent. However, Providence upset the top-seeded Hoyas in penalty kicks to advance.
During the regular season, a Bennett II beauty was the difference against Providence in what was a tightly contested match, where the Friars outshot the Golden Eagles 18-10. But the first half of Sunday’s final was a completely different story. After both sides fought to break the knot, the first goal was netted in the 34th minute when junior forward Sebastian Jansson headed in a cross from Bennett II. Tensions were high after the goal and the game became chippy. This led to redshirt sophomore forward C. Nortey going down in the 36th minute, forcing freshman forward Nick Parianos to come on. Nortey, the team’s top scorer would return, but Parianos, who saw little playing time during the season, did not hesitate to make his mark, scoring his first collegiate goal a little more than a minute after entering the match. Once
again the goal came on a header, but this time on a cross from junior forward Kelmend Islami. Marquette added one more goal from Lysak in the second half on a rip from the top of the 18-yard box, but the 3-0 cushion was barely enough. Providence added a goal in the 67th minute and another in the 87th minute to pull within one. Providence fought hard for one more, but Marquette was the victor at the final whistle and the Big East title finally headed to Milwaukee. “Being a Big East champion, regular season champion, and now the tournament champion is just, I don’t even know how to put that into words,” senior defender Eric Pothast said. “It’s just unbelievable.” Lysak and Sjoberg took home the tournament’s most outstanding offensive player and most outstanding defensive player honors respectively. Lysak scored both game winners. The Big East Tournament title
gave Marquette an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. The bid turned into a nine seed and a first round bye. The team will play the winner of Akron vs. Indiana, the defending national champion, at Valley Fields Sunday. Pothast said he’s not thrilled about receiving the nine seed, but looks forward to a long successful run this postseason. Last year, the team earned a first round bye and were upset by Northwestern. “I’m really happy and the guys are really happy,” coach Louis Bennett said. “Any draw in the NCAA is going to be a tough draw, the fact that we got a seed, our body of work spoke volumes and I’m really happy that we got in and four other Big East teams got in.” Kickoff is slated for 5 p.m. Sunday as Marquette begins its quest for the College Cup.
