Ashland University Public Relations
â€œFor people who are established writers, itâ€™s [receiving a â€œBest Americanâ€?] no big dealâ€Śbut for people who havenâ€™t, itâ€™s a big help. It gets their work out to a larger reading public,â€? Atwan said. Harvey, who has published three works of essays titled, â€œGeometry of Lillies,â€? â€œLost in Translation,â€? and â€œBound for Shady Grove,â€? is now working on a memoir. His essay, â€œThe Book of Knowledge,â€? accepted for â€œBest American,â€? explores his memories of his deceased mother. â€œThe program has caused me to up my game as a writer, knowing each year that I must come back with work that I really care about and that it will be read in front of colleaguesâ€ŚThereâ€™s something about this program that causes me to rise to the occasion,â€? Harvey said. â€œThe M.F.A. saved my career as a writer.â€? Harvey has worked for 38 years as a professor of English at Young Harris College in Georgia and teaches for AUâ€™s graduate low-residency MFA program. He received his PhD. from the University of Virginia. Jon Kerstetter, who obtained his MD degree from Mayo Medical School in Rochester Minn., an MS in business from the University of Utah, and an MFA from Ashland, has practiced medicine in wars occurring in Rwanda, Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq. â€œTriage,â€? is a chapter of Kerstetterâ€™s memoir, â€œThe Soldier Doctor,â€? which, according to his website, â€œreveals his experiences
as a combat physician, shows the working mind of an injured soldier, and details his career-ending stroke.â€? Lehman attributes this yearâ€™s success to three things: â€œthe combination of an excellent journal, some really great pieces, and the right editor.â€? The guest editor, who was Cheryl Strayed, author of â€œNew York Timesâ€? bestseller â€œWild,â€? had selected the Riverteeth winners prior to reading at AUâ€™s MFA summer residency in August. â€œSheâ€™s [Strayed] our kind of writer. She looks for the same kind of writing we look for,â€? said Lehman. Mackall said a lot of people at Ashland are invested in Riverteeth QVKT]LQVO,I^QL.Q\b[QUUWV[_PW shoots the cover photography, and undergraduate creative writing [\]LMV\[ _PW ZMIL Ă…Z[\ZW]VL M[ says.

OK International founder speaks in Symposium ZACK LEMON @zack_lemon Imagine living in a city where the air, the ground, the walls of your house and the food you eat slowly poison you. Your heart, kidneys and mind are failing, and your children are unable to fully develop. They cannot learn as well as the average student, and are prone to a life of crime and impulsive action. For 240 million people affected by lead poisoning, this requires no imagination. On Monday, Perry Gottesfeld, founder and president of Occupational Knowledge (OK) International, spoke to students, faculty and community members about the problem of lead poisoning, and solutions. His presentation, entitled â€œThe contribution of U.S. foreign investment to environmental pollution IVL PMIT\P QUXIK\[Âş [XMKQĂ…KITTa explored what role the United States plays in this issue, from investing in lead mining to the production and recycling of lead batteries.

However, in environUMV\ITPMIT\PĂ…MTL[Q\Q[I\WXKWV cern. â€œIf we look at children, it is the most important environmental issue, both in the U.S. and around the world,â€? Gottesfeld said. Although most of the people
affected by lead poisoning live in developing countries, there are still over half a million children in America who have lead poisoning. â€œWith the way it affects their development, it ultimately affects their ability to succeed for the rest of their lives,â€? he said. With more money being invested in lead mining, production and recycling in developing countries than ever before, Gottesfeld recommends countries implement and enforce more stringent regulations, as well as developing a third-party KMZ\QĂ…KI\QWVJWIZLNWZ\PMTMILQV dustry. He also recommends lead businesses in developed countries monitor their supply chain for unsafe practices. Although progress is being made, change is coming slowly.

But even where you have regulations they donâ€™t often have the capacity to enforce them,â€? Gottesfeld said. OK International exists to be the driving force behind these changes through raising awareness, spreading information and coming up with innovative solutions to the problems of lead poisoning. Gottesfeld and OK International worked with Dr. Jeffrey Weidenhamer, a professor of chemistry at Ashland University, along with several AU students, on a project involving the usage of lead paint in Cameroon. Gottesfeldâ€™s presentation was a part of the College of Arts and Sciencesâ€™ Symposium Against Indifference. The presentation was co-sponsored by the College of Nursing.
Clayton floor wars a success ANDREA STEVENSON @thatgirl_dre Clayton Hall residents cheered enthusiastically during the â€œFloor Wars: Minute to Win Itâ€? games held in the main lobby of Clayton on Wednesday. The Campus Activities Team, also referred to as Hall Council, _I[ QV KPIZOM WN \PM M^MV\ IVL P]VO Ă†aMZ[ throughout Clayton to promote the event. As seen on the television game show, â€œMinute to Win it,â€? students had one minute to complete one of eight tricky challenges. Once they completed a challenge, one point would be awarded to the teamâ€™s score. There was a solid turnout for the program.

Each team could have up to six members to compete in each challenge. Hall Council President Nolan Dilts was pleased with the team effort of those involved. â€œMinute to Win Itâ€? was an idea we came up with together and we all thought it would be fun. He said, â€œWe found the games online and set them up.â€?

sports SCHOLARSHIPS is working with a studentathlete who has met one of those criteria â€“ has strong academic performance â€“ then the scholarship dollars that that student would receive from the institution that would be considered merit dollar scholarship, that would not be counted against a coachâ€™s athletic budget,â€? Van Loo said. In essence, coaches will be rewarded for recruiting good athletes who are also good students. Many of Ashlandâ€™s coaches already do this, and are excited to see if their reduced budgets may go further when combined with academic scholarships. One such program is womenâ€™s basketball, which won the 2013
national championship and consistently ranks nationally in team GPA. â€œFor the womenâ€™s basketball team, thatâ€™s a blessing because we have everyone on our team \PI\ Y]ITQĂ…M[ NWZ IKILMUQK IQLÂş Ramsey said. â€œThat really is helpful. -IOTM[ WV \PM XTIaQVO Ă…MTL[ courts, tracks, mats, courses and pools will still be striving to be among the nationâ€™s best.

Major: Creative Writing What do you love about your sport? It is a lot of pure fun. I love my team and I love the weirdness of the sport. Itâ€™s completely unique! How long have you been playing your sport? This is my third year playing Quidditch at AU. I was one of the founding seven during my freshman year. Why should anyone get involved with club sports in your opinion? Itâ€™s fun! Itâ€™s not as much about competition as it is about having a good time.
Swim Team Defeats Indy The swim teams were back at it last Saturday, with both the men (155-78) and women (136-87) earning wins over Indianapolis. Both 200-yard medley relay teams claimed victories.

What about those returners? Guard Alyssa Miller returns as the only senior on this yearâ€™s squad, though she has been a leader since she _I[INZM[PUIV;PM_I[IĂ…Z[\\MIU)TT/41 )+IVL/41)+)TT,MNMV[Q^M\MIU[MTMK\QWVQV I^MZIOQVO XWQV\[ I[[Q[\[ IVL 3.6 rebounds.
Each offseason, Miller has improved as an all-around player, and Ramsey says this summer was no exception. She will be relied on to bring the backcourt skills that were such a consistent part of last yearâ€™s run to the national title, and also play some down low. Along with Miller, the only other returning starter is junior guard Taylor Woods, who played the best basketball of her life in the Eaglesâ€™ run to the title.

Âš0MZJITTPIVLTQVOQ[R][\XPMVWUMVITIVL her on-the-ball defense has really stepped up a lot too,â€? she said. â€œTaylor is realizing that she also needs to be the voice because she is our point guard.â€? Fellow junior Mel Poorman will also start at forward for the Eagles. She saw some key min]\M[ TI[\ aMIZ M[XMKQITTa _PMV 6I\QWVIT 8TIaMZ WN\PMAMIZ3IZQ8QKSMV[,I]OPMZ\a_I[[QLM lined with a knee injury in the middle of the season. She will bring experience and toughness. â€œWhat she really needs to hang her hat on, what we need from her, she needs to play just unbelievably solid defense because weâ€™re not really big,â€? Ramsey said. Another key returner is sophomore guard 5K3MVbQM 5QTTMZ _PW _I[ \PM WVTa NZM[PUIV on last yearâ€™s team. â€œIt is a different role for her,â€? Ramsey said. â€œSheâ€™s just one year removed from all these freshmen, but sheâ€™s quickly an upperclassman. She worked extremely hard during the summer. I always say itâ€™s usually between the freshman and sophomore year that you see the biggest OZW_\PIVL_MÂź^M[MMV\PI\QV5K3MVbQM;PMÂź[ really stepped up her game.â€? Also returning is junior guard Chelsea Laporte.
Of the newcomers, 6-foot, 1-inch freshman forward Suzy Wollenhaupt may be relied on the most for her size. She has had to learn quickly, and Ramsey has been impressed by the strides she has made in such a short amount of time. â€œMost of the time, it takes post players a little bit longer to make that adjustment, and we have really seen accelerated growth of her skills and her catching on to things,â€? she said. â€œShe gets a lot of our attention being the only really true post player that we have thatâ€™s healthy, and she responds extremely well.â€? Another player Ramsey is expecting to burst on the scene is freshman guard Rachelle Morrison, who she describes as having a high basketball IQ. Other newcomers are freshmen Maggie ,I^I]T\ 3MT[Ma 8MIZM -UUI 0W[\M\TMZ IVL Erin Crownover, and sophomore transfer from Wheeling Jesuit Jamie Sobczak. The Eagles may have a lot of new faces, but Ramsey expects fans to recognize â€œAshland basketballâ€? when they see it return to the court. â€œWhat stat stands out in our winning of the national title?â€? she asked. â€œWhen it comes down to it, it was our defense. Yeah, itâ€™s good to score points and we shot a high percentage and all that, but I think we continue to hang our hat on defense.â€? Another staple of Ramseyâ€™s teams is their ]V[MTĂ…[PJITTUW^MUMV\WVWNNMV[M â€œWhen we move that ball in the half court and we pass up the ok shot for an even higher percentage shot and we knock down open shots, thatâ€™s when our offense clicks,â€? she said â€œThatâ€™s a standard, thatâ€™s an expectation that weâ€™ll always have of Ashland basketball.â€? )N\MZ \PM WXMVMZ IOIQV[\ +MLIZ^QTTM " XU;I\]ZLIa\PM-IOTM[PW[\1VLQIVIXWTQ[\PM following Sunday at 2 p.m. 6W\IJTM OIUM[ WV \PM [KPML]TM QVKT]LM \PM ,MK ZMUI\KPWNTI[\aMIZÂź[5QL_M[\:MOQWVIT championship game against Wayne State and \PMZMVM_ITWN\PMZQ^ITZa_Q\P6W5QKPQOIV Tech, which will be televised on CBS Sports 6M\_WZSWV2IV

University of Findlay, 35 vs Ashland University, 28 Donnell Stadium - Findlay, OH. The Ashland University Eagles lost this weekend to the University of Findlay Oilers 35 - 28. However, the Eagles put up a good fight. Anthony Taylor had a total of 152 yards with 28 carries, making this game his 7th 100-yard game of the season. Taylor is 41 yards short of Ashlandโs Single Season Rushing Record and scored two touchdowns throughout the game. Assisting Taylor was freshman TrayโVon Chapman, completing 11 of 25 passes and running 165 yards with one interception. Dan Piko was the leading receiver with five catches, 104 yards, and two touchdowns. Pikoโs second touchdown was scored on a 4th and goal play on Findlayโs 19-yard line. The Oilers defeated the Eagles in a close game Saturday. Devontae Payne ran 173 passing yards during the game, rushed for 64 yards on 12 carries, and completed 10 of 19 passes. Payne had assistance from Daiquone Ford, who ran 186 yards on 41 carries and scored two touchdowns. However, the winning catch goes to Seth White who caught the 24-yard touchdown pass with less than five seconds remaining in the game. The Eaglesโ defense went down with a fight, as defensive lineman Jamie Meder had 11 tackles in the game, seven of which were solo, and linebacker Zach Olszewski had 10 tackles, six of which were solo. Next week, the Eagles host the Tiffin University Dragons Saturday at 1 p.m. for their senior day. PHOTOS BY ELIZABETH BUCHEIT

Ashbrook outsider LEXI ROBERTSON @AUCollegian 1[I\LW_VQVUaÅZ[\XWTQ\Q cal science class of the semester and to my horrifying realization I see that my desk is for lefties, and I am no leftie. I can’t just get up and move because that would seem weird, right? Everyone has probably felt like an outsider at one point, and for me the feeling comes from being a political science major who is not an Ashbrook. 1\¼[\PMÅZ[\LIaWNIVM_ semester and I quietly wait to see who else is in my class. As they walk in everyone greets each other in excitement. “Oh you’re in this class too?!” “How did your internship this summer go?” “Our professor better make
this class less boring than his last one!” And as they converse I sit in silence. I have seen most of their faces around campus, but I don’t know any of them personally. I feel like the outsider, the wall ÆW_MZIVL]T\QUI\MTaL]UJMZ than them since I’m not in their ‘special group.’ )\ÅZ[\1\Za\WXTIaWNN\PQ[ feeling that everyone will see me writing right handed in a lefthanded desk. But no, that won’t work. I’ll never be able read these notes. I think, “Oh god, I hope no one notices how weird I am, how foreign I am in this junior level political science class writing right handed in a left handed desk. I will never live this down.” When I arrived at Ashland I was a journalism major and not
much more. And as most undergrads do at a school like this, I changed my major...well to be UWZM[XMKQÅK1ILLMLIUIRWZ I wasn’t aware of any political science program until this change, so I entered all my new classes as an outsider. The students did not know me, nor did the professors. But it happens to the best of us. Many of my sorority sisters are education majors who must take higher-level science classes, computer classes, creative writing and journalism classes. It’s easy to feel out of place in tightknit majors that are not your own. The important thing is to not let it overwhelm you and ultimately let it affect your grade. Senior education major Courtney Patton knows exactly how it feels to be an outsider. She is tak-
ing a computer science class that Q[LQNÅK]T\\WKWUXZMPMVL “The class is mostly freshmen or international students and they all understand,” she said. “I just kind of sit there and feel lost. I’m scared to ask questions in my class because I feel like they already understand.” Even taking core classes can sometimes be a social challenge. Rachael Stone, a senior education major, feels out of place in her core science class. “I feel uncomfortable because 1¼UVW\KWVÅLMV\_Q\P\PMUI\M rial,” she said. “I don’t know a lot of people because it’s not in my major, and I’m just working hard with something I’m not passionate about.” I feel the same way about asking for help in my political science classes, but it important to speak
up about anything I might not understand or be confused about. However, most of the time I ask a professor a question after class because I’m shy and feel awkward not being an Ashbrook. But the truth is I’m sure most of the other students don’t even notice, and the professors don’t care what groups you’re part of. Everyone is in college for one main reason and that is to learn. Anything getting in the way of \PI\WVMUIQVOWITKIVJMÅ`ML and dealt with. I love both my majors, but being a political science major and not an Ashbrook is in truth making me a better student. I’m learning to participate more despite my shyness, ask questions, and do my assignments with more ambition to achieve that 4.0 GPA.
License to walk: how to make the most of your weekend without a car BETH ROSEPAL @mygurlbeth08 “It’s called a Willy Wonka Night!” I told my friend as we unloaded bags of candy from the Eagles’ Nest. Willy Wonka Night is the name for a night when you and your friends load up on as much candy as possible and create different food combinations to try while watching Willy Wonka. I thought of this idea while watching an episode of Gilmore Girls, where something similar happened. Willy Wonka Night is just one of the things I have found myself doing on the weekends without a car on campus. My past three years of college have been some of the most

memorable years of my life. I have made some of the greatest memories with some of the greatest people here and when I think of all these memories I notice one common denominator: I didn’t need a car. Living on campus without a car has helped me be creative when ÅVLQVO\PQVO[\WLW_Q\PTQUQ\ML resources. I’ve learned to make the most of the things I have right in front of me. When I did I was able to recognize all of the great options AU has to offer. “It has forced me . . . to be able to take part in all the fun activities CAB has on the weekends,” junior Kate Lentz stated when asked about her college experience without a car on campus.

I couldn’t agree more with her. When I looked right at the end of my nose, I was able to explore the events held on campus by different organizations. I utilized the Free Movie nights that CAB offers as well as the FREE comedians, hypnotists, dueling pianos, dance parties, etc. I guess what I’m trying to get at is that I was able to have fun at no cost to me! “Not having a car on campus not only lets you recognize the fun events on campus, but also saves you a ton of money that you would have to spend on gas,” Amanda Kriner, an alumni, stated when asked about the difference between having a car on campus and not. Being a poor college student leaves your options kind of limited.
Therefore, if the word “FREE” was in front of it, I took advantage. When I did, I realized those were the things I remember having the most fun at. The word “FREE” was also found in front of other community service sponsored events such as the dog shelter. It is a bit of a walk from campus to the shelter, but when you get to play with dogs for a couple hours and forget school, it is worth the walk. 1IT[WZMKWOVQbML\PMJMVMÅ\[ of making friends when there isn’t much to do on a small campus in a small town.

well as in other buildings as a result of having nothing else to do besides study for hours on end (which never sounds appealing). Because of this I made some of the best memories just sitting in a Kem lobby while we all “did homework” on our laptops. I’ll never forget crying hysterically over some funny YouTube video or looking up old 90s stars and seeing where they are now. I’ll always remember those nights even though we did absolutely nothing. These memories helped me realize that having the best college experience is possible at a small college, in a small town, without a car.

ELIZABETH BUCHEIT, MELANIE SUDAR, CHRIS BILS AND MARY ANKROM @AUCollegian
Elizabeth: After a really rough Monday, I needed some good old fashioned comfort food. When Chris told me that we were going to Belly Busters to get some barbeque, I was so excited not only because barbeque is one of my favorite foods, but because I had been there before and knew that I was in for a good Monday evening meal. Melanie: I had never been to Belly Busters, and honestly, never even heard of it. When we walked in though, I knew it was going to be good from the excitement on Elizabeth and Chris’s faces. My expectations were not only met, but exceeded. Mary: First of all, I was very honored to be dubbed the guest star in the Local Eats and experience one of Ashland’s hometown eateries. I had always seen signs for Belly Buster’s but never thought of going or heard anything about it. It was a tasty experience and a lot JM\\MZ\PIV_PI\1_W]TLPILM`XMK\ML1_W]TLLMÅVQ\MTaZMKWUUMVL\PQ[XTIKMQNaW]¼ZM ever in need of some good fried food.

Anyway, the point of this long diversion on elderly women, I suppose, is to tell you that you order at the counter rather than off of a menu at your table. Elizabeth: I went to the back of the line because I was not in the mood to make any decisions, and lets be real...I can pretty much get anything at a barbeque place. I ended up getting a half rack of baby back ribs, with two sides. Of course, the two sides that I chose were macaroni and cheese and cornbread. In my opinion, cornbread is the true test of a OWWLJIZJMY]MRWQV\4M\¼[R][\[Ia\PMaXI[[ML_Q\PÆaQVOKWTWZ[ Melanie: Belly Busters’ appearance was not what I was expecting.

I knew that no matter what I got it would be delicious. I settled for a classic of pulled pork sandwich with a coke and fries. Spoiler alert: it was fabulous. Chris: Since Melanie stole my order, I had to go a slightly different route. Because I’ve been burning a tank of gas every week driving back and forth from Columbus, my wallet is starting to feel the squeeze. If you navigate the menu correctly, Belly Busters has some very reasonable option. I went with the Beef Brisket Sandwich, which with a side and a drink is only $8.19.

So, I stuck my fork into Chris’s basket without asking and stole some Okra. Well, let me tell you. I was wrong. It’s a fried vegetable.

And I must say that although it isn’t my new favorite vegetable (who has a favorite vegetable anyway?), it wasn’t bad. Mary: Forget the Okra...shout out to Elizabeth’s Mac n Cheese!

Just saying. Mary: I have to agree with Melanie when it comes to the appearance. I was expecting to see a small, run down little tavern-like place. It wasn’t at all, but I did like the whiteboard full of recent customers leaving their comments and love for the food. That showed [WUM PWUM\W_V TW^M IVL _I[ ^MZa XMZ[WVIJTM 6W\ \W UMV\QWV \PMQZ +I\Å[P _I[ XZM\\a bomb, which I have to admit I ate a little too fast.

The only issue I had during my meal was that service was a little slow. I had to go up and ask for barbeque sauce, which could have been my fault for not asking for it when I ordered.
