all about the Lights Don HenscheL had the Christmas spirit a little early in 2005. In the spring of ‘05, the theater professor and studio designer was commissioned to work on Santa’s Workshop, the newest display in the MSU-Burns Fantasy of Lights. The display is dedicated to the memory of Jan Thacker, who was instrumental in keeping the annual event alive. “Jan Thacker was the sparkplug behind it all those years, and then she passed away,” Henschel said. “I’d always worked with her before on displays. When I got to where I thought one was finished, I’d give her a call and she’d come out with a couple of other ladies to the warehouse, where I’d finish it up and put it together.” “This time, Carmen (Jan Thacker’s daughter-in-law, who took over for Jan after her death) didn’t bring anybody else out-- in fact, I don’t even know when she saw it exactly-- but, almost immediately, when it was finished, she had it moved over to Bill Thacker ’s (father-inlaw) warehouse and that is where is has been hiding.” Carmen wanted the new display to be kept a secret until the offical opening ceremonies which took place, December 9, 2005. “Even the maintenance guys who put them together haven’t seen it. I mean, nobody has seen that thing! It’s just funny. Nor did they even know what it was,” said Henschel. A few of Henschels’ students helped with the display, but they were sworn to secrecy. Henschel said that he has always wanted to do a 12

Janus Buss, Director of Public Information and Marketing, estimates about 200,000 people come to see the display every year, including people from all over the state of Texas.

college of business administration gets new building . . . and $5 million

pbusiness lanning began for a new 75,000 square foot building with a projected cost of $10-12 million in 2002. It was a time when MSU’s enrollment was steadily increasing and the College of Business Administration (COBA) was under the direction of interim dean Martha Harvey. A new business building would represent the largest building for college use on campus. “I quite literally have the office of a faculty member in what used to be a closet,” said Harvey of the tight space in the Fowler Building, COBA’s home at the time. In addition to the Fowler Building, the College of Business Administration used three different buildings for classes and faculty offices. “We do not have enough room,” stated Harvey. The official nod came from the MSU Board of Regents unanimously in February 2004 when the Board approved the project cost and financing plan for the now $19 million building. Planning to use Higher Education Assistance Funds (HEAF) to pay for the bulk of the project, the Board gave the go ahead to select a construction manager and work with a bond counsel. The location for the new business building – the north side of the quadrangle; a location at the time held by the old music education building and credit union. In July 2005 with construction underway, MSU welcomed a new dean for the College of Business Administration, Dr. Anthony F. Chelte. Focused on the future, Chelte stated “I would like to see MSU become the center of excellence in business education and service.” The construction of the new business building is only the beginning.

Chelte’s forthcoming plans for COBA included accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB International), the implementation of a comprehensive five year plan, creation of a higher quality MBA program, and strengthened student job placement and internship opportunities. Then, in November 2005, it was announced as the largest single gift in the university’s history, five million dollars. The “Dillard Trust,” as it was officially deemed, will provide funding for various programs in the College of Business Administration including endowed professorships, faculty research, scholarships for outstanding students, and technology improvements in the new business building. Delighted by the generosity of Mrs. Dillard and the Dillard family, the MSU Board of Regents voted unanimously to name the new 88,000 square foot structure and the academic college the Dillard College of Business Administration. The Dillard College of Business Administration will open its doors to MSU students in the fall of 2006. Faculty will move in during the summer. In addition to a large number of modern classrooms and auditoriums, the new building will feature several computer labs, a Starbucks coffee shop and café, study lounges, an academic advising center, the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), conference rooms, and spacious faculty offices and lounges. From the outside, the massive building with its matching brick, tinted windows, and large arches will only enhance the existing architectural beauty of the campus.

Construction of the new Dillard College of Business Administration began in the spring of 2005. The building will open for MSU students in the fall of 2006. The building is located on the north side of the quadrangle, next to Bolin Fountain.

iDeeNttIttY cRiiSiiS VS.

As far back as we can remember, Midwestern State University has been known as the Indians. The campus reflects our Indian traditions through statues, street names, meeting rooms and more. It‛s who we are. It‛s where we came from. In August 2005, the NCAA listed 18 colleges and universities that had Native American mascots deemed potentially offensive. MSU was on the list. If the mascot was not changed by February, we would not be allowed to participate in post-season athletic competition. Midwestern officials prepared a lengthy report detailing how the university had used the Indian mascot, how we had never represented the Indians in a disrespectful manner and the fact that our campus was blessed by the local Kiowa tribe. The report did not work. Faced with the inevitable, President Jesse Rogers formed a 14-member committee to recommend a new mascot. Over 180 different suggestions were submitted to the committee – everything from Armadillos to Jedi Knights. In what was considered by many students to be the most controversial

“Change does not change tradition, it strengthens it. Change is a challenge and an opportunity, not a threat.” -Prince Phillip of England

2004’s trip to the playoffs capped off an amazing season for the MSU Indians. And, for the returning players, they wanted nothing more than to continue the new tradition this year and play as long as possible. This feat would be trickier than thought. In three games, MSU lost by less than a field goal. With several attempts in each game, one extra field goal would have turned the game around. In the second game of the season, MSU Rallied back in the second half to come within two points of Texas A&M Commerce. A failed 35-yard field goal attempt by kicker Kristian Foster in the final drive of the game would leave the Indians just shy of winning. Kristian Foster, kicker, atIn the game against West Texas A&M, temtps to get the ball between the uprights. after MSU failed to complete five extra point attemps, West Texas turned around and made it down the field to kick a 27-yard field goal to win by one point. Coaches looked to punter Ben White for the field goals since Foster and backup kicker Trey McCord were both out with injury. “The kicking game killed us,” head coach Bill Maskill said. “That was our third kicker (White) and he’s not a kicker, he’s a punter. He’d never kicked in a college game before.” In a third game where field goals were crucial, MSU took on the Angelo State University Rams who, in the final seconds of the game, kicked a 20-yard field goal to put them ahead once again by a single point. However, during the game, the Indians failed to capitalize on two points after touchdown attempts. These three games had a hand in spoiling the Indian’s attempt at a second straight playoff appearance. But, with at least 45 players returning for another year, the Indian’s chance of returning to the NCAA playoffs next year is only a field goal away.

The MSU volleyball team began this season with last year’s record hanging over them. a 12-19 season is nothing to be smile about. However, by the end of the 2005 volleyball season, the Lady Indians finally had something to be proud of. In her second year as head coach of MSU volleyball, coach Venera Flores posted the best season the Indians had seen in nine years. Her team ended the season on a winning note with a record of 26-10 for the regular season. The Lady Indians’ overall record was 26-12, which is the best season for MSU Volleyball since they entered Division II in 1996. Coach Flores also holds the 5th highest ranking for all time wins at MSU as head coach and she has a 55.1 win percentage, which places her in the top three among all coaches who have coached MSU volleyball. “We hope to keep on rolling and playing with intensity,” commented Coach Flores. Among the 26 wins MSU gained this season were broken records and high honors. MSU posted a match score of 3-0 for 12 straight games, breaking the previous school record of 10 straight games. Overall, the Lady Indians held scores of 3-0 for 21 of their 38 matches. Freshman setter Allison Schreiber was named Lone Star Conference Setter of the Week twice during the season. Schreiber also set a Lady Indian singlegame record with 73 set assists in the loss to Texas-Permian Basin. Most importantly, the Lady Indians made their first ever appearance in the Lone Star Conference Tournament. The Lady Indians’ loss to Texas-Permian Basin at the end of the regular season was thought to have ceased their tournament hopes. Luckily, Southeastern Oklahoma lost to Central Oklahoma which gave MSU their (above) Nikki Spinato bumps the ball as teammate Ashley Godwin first playoff berth. keeps her eye on the play.

Megan Bibilone

In early November 2005, the Midwestern State University men’s soccer team steadily worked towards a seat in the Southwest Soccer Conference championship. The Indians ended their regular season with an overall record of 13-3-2. On Sunday, November 6, 2005, they won a share of the Southwest Soccer Conference championship as they beat St. Edward’s University with a score of 2-0. However, the win against St. Edward’s University gave the soccer team a tie with the University of the Incarnate Word for the Southwest Soccer Conference title. Interestingly, Midwestern State University and the University of the Incarnate Word tied each other twice this season with scores of 2-2 and 0-0. As a result of the NCAA selection process, the University of the Incarnate Word was chosen to advance to the tournament. The men’s soccer team will have to anxiously await next year’s season.

freshman fr reshm Bibilone provides game-winning goals Freshman Megan Bibilone has brought not only a fresh face into women’s soccer, Fres occe cce er butt a few f points on the board as well. The 5’7” Fort Worth Native has the highest number of goals on the team, along with the most game-winning goals. Her seven goals, three of them gaining a victory for the team, and fourteen points has contributed to the team’s 9-9-2 overall record for the season. Bibilone was awarded the Lone Star Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for her four goals in one week. Three were a contribution to MSU’s win over Northeastern State with a score of 8-5, the fourth was a game-wining goal against East Central leading to a 2-0 win. This is the only offensive player of the week award that MSU gained this season, Elli O’ Dwyer took the defensive award twice for her goal-keeping skills. As an incoming freshman on a team full of upperclassmen with talent abounding, the nerves can get to you. Bibilone realized this when she first stepped into practice, “I was nervous about how well I would match up with the other soccer players,” Bibilone admitted. But after a rough start, she sat down for a talk with her coaches. “I realized that all I needed to do was play the game.” The Lady Indians benefitted greatly from this realization and it was evident at the end of the season that Bibilone had done more than just played the game. All in all, this season for the Lady Indians soccer team wasn’t found lacking. although they didn’t win the Lone Star Conference, it was still a season to find honor in.

men’s basketball season seems familiar

The MSU men’s basketball team had a round of “the usual” this season.

by: ashley jackson

Eddie Rowe

They finished their season with an overall record of 16-11, which is reminiscent of their past two seasons, with records of 16-12 and 18-11. This overall record gave the team a 61.1 win percentage. Their win percentage overall: A very similar 67.5 Percent. The team also has a noticeable pattern of winning and losing against the same teams. They beat Abilene Christian University twice this season, which should be no surprise because they have upset ACU for 39 of 67 overall games. They also beat Angelo State twice--again having a winning record of 31-18 overall against ASU.. In fac,t, the MSU men show this pattern when playing 8 of their usual opponents. Coach Jeff Ray, who has coached the MSU men’s basketball team for nine years, also has a pattern of his own. Ray has posted two seasons with records of 17-11, which equals a 64.7 win percentage. His win percentage overall: Oddly enough, it’s 64.7 Percent. Indeed, most coaches in MSU men’s basketball history have been succeptable to this pattern. Five of the seven coaches who have coached the men have win percentages in the 60s. ALthough the team has posted winning records for the past two years, perhaps greater success lies simply in breaking a pattern.

the MSU women’s basketball team ended conference play with a record of 5-9. THey held an overall record of 11-16, making this season their first losing season in four years. The record made the women sixth in their division, which means they missed their chance at playoffs this season. The losing season was caused in part by the Mustangs’ inability to be consistent. In January, they beat Eastern New Mexico by three points; however, in February they lost to them by 10 points. In January, they also beat Texas Woman’s University by nine points, but in February, they lost by 12. On January 4th, they lost to Abilene Christian by five points. Seven days later, on January 11th, they beat Abilene Christian by 10 points. The MSU women were also inconsistent on the free throw line. On February 25, 2006, the team missed four consecutive free throws that cost them a victory. More importantly, the loss cost the Mustangs a postseason playoff berth. Although their season was not too positive, the Mustangs ended on a positive note. Angie Faurot and Katie Robertson were named to the Lone Star Conference South Commissioner’s Honor Roll, and Katherine Maples was named to the Lone STar Conference South Division’s Second Team.

cheerleaders committment practice, pain, and pride . . . a year to remember The MSU Cheerleaders are spirit leaders; they are also athletes. During the 200506 year, the Cheerleaders practiced 3 times a week for two hours each in the Fall and 5 times a week in the Spring. The squad cheered at all football games, all home basketball games, and most home soccer and volleyball matches. They also worked Family Day, Homecoming, and other alumni and community events. On top of this, they sponsored a Blood Drive during Fall Welcome Week to support the United Regional Healthcare System and offered a free Cheerleading Clinic for hundreds of local youths in partnership with the wichita falls Parks & Recreation Department. After winning first place in Collegiate Spirit Routine at summer camp last July, the MSU Cheerleaders received a bid to compete in the The MSU Cheerleaders perform during halftime National Collegiate Cheerleading Championships at a men’s basketball game. in Daytona Beach, Florida. In Daytona, the team ended up making finals for the first time in recent school history and placed fifth in the entire nation. It truly was a great year and, with a large number of squad members returning next year, the MSU Cheerleaders are here to stay. Posing in front of the Sikes House, the cheerleaders give praise to Alma Mater (rigjht).

MSU welcomed a new sport to Campus, when Women’s Cross Country held their first practice. The rest was well, history. In their inaugural season, nine athletes began a tradition and, after running at least 30 miles a week, their accomplishments have set a precedent for years to come. Some of therse girls, many of whom are upperclassmen, didn’t run in high school and are just happy to be on the team. “I really enjoy that we’re the first girls’ Cross Country team to represent our school,” said senior Katy Blackwood. IN the North Texas Invitational, MSU placed fifth and was the highest non-NCAA Division I team. THey also placed sixth in the Oklahoma Baptist University Bison Invitational as a team. Senior Anna Crockett finished fifth individually. Coach James “Chilly” Childers, who held practice six days a week, sometimes twice a day, has high hopes for the team’s future. “we can become a national power. This area has great runners and plenty of talent,” he said. The addition of Women’s Cross Country to MSU athletics could help increase the attention towards female sports. With a promising future and new pair of sneakers, MSU Cross Country is on the path to success.

With a single suggestion, we took the facebook idea and ran with it. In not even five minutes, we had designed the entire book. That, it turns out would be the easy part.

Brian Darland, thank you for sticking with us, meeting with us, showing us how to
