Updated Talley models released As Talley renovation plans develop, physical models are released with general layout details. Alanna Howard Deputy News Editor

Although many specifics of Talley Student Center’s renovation aren’t concrete, the most up-to-date models have recently been made public. According to Sumayya Jones-Humienny, project manager of Capital Project Management, the models demonstrate the project has moved in to the schematic design phase, that it is ready to move from paper to reality.  “After advance planning we started looking at a schematic design, what we captured on paper we’ve developed into 3-D physical renderings,” JonesHumienny said.  The models of the five floor building, which are now available to the public, give a general layout of each level’s floor plan, and the green space around the building.   Building Layout Specs The first floor includes a loading and service area which extends behind Price Music Center and up to Alexander Hall, storage below Stewart Theater, mechanical areas, a kitchen and a large part of the textbook aspect of the bookstore.   The second floor is ground level, and will house Stewart Theater, retail shops, retail and apparel parts of the bookstore, a C-Store, dining options, lounge and indoor and outdoor seating.  According to Jones-Humienny, the dining and retail options have not been determined as of yet.  “We’re not sure for what the retail opportunities will be yet; we’re still looking at survey answers but there will be indoor and outdoor seating for dining,”

she said. Outside the new Talley the amount of green space will be vastly increased. There will be an “all campus path” that will double as a fire access lane, that is a gently sloping natural amphitheater. The amphitheater will begin around the outside of the Free Expression tunnel and extend and widen towards Reynolds Coliseum. The landscape features include rain gardens and walking paths.  The amphitheater is possible because of the elimination of the dead-end Dunn Avenue, according to JonesHumienny.  “We’re cutting off Dunn Avenue where the Reynolds turn-around ends,” Jones-Humienny said. “The area can be much better utilized by natural landscaping. This all campus path will be a great place for concerts, large student gatherings or for lots of students to enjoy the outdoors on a nice day.”  The third, fourth and fifth f loors include a two-story ballroom, offices, Stewart Theatre, lounges, meeting

rooms and the bridge to Broughton Hall. The bridge extends out of Talley, through the planned “Technology Tower” and will be universally accessible for students will disabilities through elevators in Talley and Broughton.  According to Jones-Humienny, the funds for the bridge are separate, and aren’t currently available.  “The construction for the bridge is part of the Broughton Hall renovation project and that money has been cut and gone back to the state, but we’ve gone ahead with the design for it because the bridge can be built separate, but we need to make sure we’ve allocated room for its connection upon completion,” Jones-Humienny said.  The initial master plan for the new building called for a price tag of $150 million, but the interim Chancellor James Woodward asked for a

State’s Common Reading Selection Committee has chosen The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot as the shared summer reading for the entering class of 2011. According to the author’s website, Henrietta Lacks was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells, taken without her knowledge in 1951, became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro fertilization, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown. HeLa cells are studied by scientists and students still today. Skloot will speak at freshman convocation in August to culminate the experience for incoming freshmen. SOURCE: NCSU.EDU

use of it while we’re here. So we phased an increase of student fees on a 4 year scale until the product is complete,” she said. The “approved student fee,” according to the Talley Renovation and Addition web site, is capped at $290 and “translates into eighty cents per day.” A fundraising campaign is also said to be under development, according to the site.  What’s next for the project? According to Jones-Humienny the next step is the move into design development to make sure the units are on a finer level of detail and exact square footage of each room and space will be determined.

smaller number. The budget was slashed to $120 million, and cuts were made in every department to incorporate that new amount, according to Jones-Humienny.  “Interim Chancellor Woodward decided that he couldn’t sell $150 million to the Board of Trustees, and so we needed to reduce it to $120 million. To do that we had to make cuts in every unit to make sure we met the new budget constraints. That was tied to the students saying we don’t want to pay that much and we want to get

to the Campus Review Design Panel which will give the design approval so the project can get final approval from the Board of Trustees. Jones-Humienny said she hopes this happens in Junly.  “So far each step of the approval process has been favorable but there are some things we have to address, once we get things finalized and approved the plans then go to [the Board of Trustees] for final approval, ideally in July of this year. After that the construction document phase gets nailed down into hard plans with dimensions so we can start getting bids for pricing for construction,” she said.

It doesn’t stop here, Student Government T THE FACTS:

After two weeks of campaigning for student leadership roles, the results of the elections are in. Those elected will lead the student body of N.C. State in the upcoming school year as they sit on administration and student committees, communicate with other campuses and voice the concerns of the student body.


The student body has tollerated two weeks of hearing candidates lobby for votes. This process must not go to waste; those elected must be held accountable for the change they promised.

he whirl-wind of Sudoku-platform flyers, brightly colored sandwich boards and excessive media coverage has proven to be a success for the 2011 spring campaigning season. While candidate platforms have shifted, the issues remain the same. The first obstacle the new wave of student leadership is going to face is keeping their word on the issues raised in the past week of campaigning. Elected students should not stop putting forth their best effort to please the student body merely because the polls have closed—these students’ jobs are only beginning. Throughout the past two weeks candidates have plastered their logos, some bigger

those elected must be willing to continue hearing the voices of the student body. As the student body, it is our responsibility to make those voices heard. Technician has received countless letters to the editor regarding candidates’ platforms; this type of feedback must not decrease merely because the signs are being put away. We must continue to discuss these issues so they may be resolved. This can be achieved by staying informed of the work Student Government is doing. Student Government, in return, must make this work

than others, all over campus. Others have neglected their own endorsement, so as not to fall to hypocrisy. Snide comments and harsh words have been exchanged. The one thing each candidate seems to agree on is the need for transparency within Student Government. If that is truly the case, those elected must pursue this campaign goal. While these candidates share the same cookie-cutter response to various student issues around campus, their answers are a result from the voiced student opinions. To maintain this transparency,

accessible to the student body, an issue brought up in many candidates’ platforms. Being informed will allow our opinions to carry more weight, so we may not only raise concerns, but also have potential answers to them. We must hold these elected officials accountable for their promises made throughout the campaign trial. Regardless of what platform, or rather, whose sign received the most votes, they’re in charge now and we better keep them engaged in our concerns. Instead of needing our vote, these elected student leaders now need our support.



Hide the crazy

eeting new people is a tricky business, and there’s always a fine line between coming off as interesting and coming off as weird. What you need to know is to just be yourself—sort of. One thing I like to tell all my friends is sometimes you need to hide the crazy for a little while. If you think you have no crazy to hide, then you are probably the craziest of them all. Staci The dating Thompson world is probably the hardAdvice Columnist est place to figure out what to say versus what not to say. I’m not telling anyone to lie on a date, but sometimes your date does not need to know the entire truth about everything in your life. It’s like an interview—if they ask about your biggest weakness, you don’t tell them an actual weakness. You take your strength and turn it into a weakness. It’s the same in the dating world. Just because you’ve seen the midnight premiere of every Harry Potter movie in costume does not mean that your date needs to know that about you right away. If you get the feeling that your date may appreciate zany information about you, feel free to share. Just know not everyone will get your Harry Potter obsession. As the relationship progresses, you can slowly reveal your eccentric personality traits. This way the person has already started to fall for you and the little things, like how you have a small crush on Justin Bieber, won’t be a deal breaker.   Along with hiding the crazy, think about hiding the crabby as well. If you are out on a first date and the waiter brings you a regular Coke instead of a Diet Coke, flipping out on the waiter and telling him what an idiot he is does not make the greatest impression. If you haven’t heard the rule “someone who is nice to you but rude to the waiter is not a nice person,” you definitely need to memorize it. Some-

times it doesn’t matter what you say to the person you are trying to impress but what you say to others that really matters. This all applies when it comes to meeting new people in general. As an incoming graduate student who has been out of college for a few years, I had to remember how to walk into a classroom where I knew no one and had to make friends. I have plenty of crazy in me and knew right away that in order to successfully make a good impression, I had to hide the little things, like my fear of mascots and hatred of certain words like “moist” and “meatloaf,” until they liked me enough to not think I was weird. It seems as though everyone was thinking the same thing I was. On the first day of each class we had to introduce ourselves and say something interesting about us. The first semester, we all said pretty mundane things like w here we were born or that we had never broken a bone. But during the same introductions with the same people our second semester, I remember thinking these facts are a lot more interesting than last semester’s. Since I already knew and liked these people, the fact that one of them used to be a pageant queen and that one of them is addicted to nail polish didn’t make me think these people were crazy. I was just learning new things about my new friends. The biggest thing to remember in any new relationship—platonic or romantic—is that a new person doesn’t need to know everything about you right away. Hide the crazy.

“...sometimes your date does not need to know the entire truth.”

Christian O’Neal, sophomore in mechanical engineering


A chilly event for track and field article I am the young lady whose triple jumping picture was put in the paper. The caption information was wrong. Karimah Shepherd is another triple jumper on the team. I enjoyed reading the article, but I was really upset that the caption was messed up. I don’t understand how that wasn’t corrected before the paper came out. In high school I took journalism, a class that made the school’s newspaper. I know before any articles come out, we made sure all the information was correct because if it wasn’t, we were the ones looking stupid for getting it wrong. I feel really honored to have a picture in the school’s newspaper, but I feel like this is an issue that shouldn’t be coming up. Also, this isn’t the first time information regarding the track has been wrong. In the Friday’s paper, the section on Raleigh Relays and the schools, such as Florida State, that were coming was wrong. Florida State did not attend the track meet. My teammate said that Florida State was a school that was very competitive when he was interviewed. We are very thankful for what you do and look forward to many wonderful articles from you all.

public “Ivy League” school? Did they see the study where N.C. State grads are shown to make more money than UNC grads? Or the Wall Street Journal article that says job recruiters rank NCSU higher than UNC? How about the fact that UNC has been cited for major grade inflation twice this decade alone. In 2008, 80 percent of all grades were A’s and B’s. And sure, we suck at basketball. We have ever since their journalism grads at the News and Observer slandered Jimmy Valvano’s name and essentially helped get him fired. At least we support our team. If UNC had a last 20 years like NCSU had, there would be no more UNC fans. Their home games were empty after their bad start just last year. It makes no sense why they feel they can make fun of us about basketball. But if we make fun of them about how their nonnationally relevant football program potentially being the SMU of 2010, with agent and academic scandals, they always seem to have excuses about the program. The entire University suffers from this type of hypocrisy. William O’Donnell sophomore, business administration

It’s true that your event was pitched last semester, but I was not on Student Government then and didn’t know about it until a month ago. On the subject of plagiarism, maybe Moore would like to point out that the team he’s on for Student Body President is doing nothing more than recycling unoriginal campaign ideas we see every year, along with other candidates following the same path. Isn’t there something about a pot calling the kettle black? Then again, what do I know?   All I do is steal everyone else’s ideas.

‘Dr. Horrible’ is not your average musical This weekend, students will get a special treat from this year’s Student Studio production.

tween the spring musical right after spring break and the last production of the semester for a Student Studio production. Steinberg said he wanted to do Dr. Horrible this year because he loved the original web series, which starred Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible and was co-written by Joss Whedon, the creator of cult TV shows like Firefly and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. “We knew we wanted to do a Student Studio. And then my friend showed me Dr. Horrible. And I knew that students would love this show,” Steinberg said. He wasn’t sure if the show would actually be able to run because he had to contact the owners of the stage rights in order to go through with it. Luckily, they got back to him and granted one of the last stage production contracts of Dr. Horrible for them to put on the show. “There are only five more right contracts going to be put on,” Steinberg said. “So we are one of the last groups to put it on.” Because of the small scale of the show, it was perfect for the group of students to put on.

Students use photography to display diversity on campus N.C. State In Focus allows students to take pictures of their definition of diversity. Brooke Shafranek Staff Writer




Strategically placed around campus, students and faculty can find disposable cameras to take pictures of their view of diversity. Differences don’t always have to cause issues between people, and the Inter-Residence Council’s N.C. State In Focus campaign seeks to prove that point. The event celebrates diversity on campus through the use of photography. All the photos will be judged and displayed at D.H. Hill Library, and Rupert Nacoste, professor of psychology, will later speak about “Living on the Neo-Diversity Frontier” in the Erdohl-Cloyd Auditorium of D.H. Hill Library April 6 at 6 p.m. Derin Alabi, a senior in computer and electrical engineering, is the committee chair in IRC for N.C. State In Focus. “It showcases the diversity we have at N.C. State,” Alabi said. “There are a lot of people here with different ideals, values, morals and ways of life. Diversity isn’t about the differences that separate us; it’s about the differences that bring us together.” Kendre Davis, a sophomore in psychology and IRC’s vice president of programming,

said the event is a great way for students to get a visual on diversity at the University. “We talk about diversity on this campus all the time,” Davis said, “but this is a good way to actually see it.” Davis said she hopes the visual will make the University’s diversity more approachable for students. Dav i s wa nt s students to see that diversity isn’t one specific thing, and hopes that N.C. State In Focus will show students the unity in campus life. “There isn’t one definition of diversity. This is the entire campus’ definition of diversity that is being showcased.” “Yes, we are N.C. State,” Alabi said, “but we all have differences in common, too, that make us a stronger community.” The event committee is facing the challenge of theft of the cameras, according to Alabi. “We were afraid people would steal them,” Alabi said, “which they have.” Alabi has high hopes that the students will return the stolen cameras to the IRC office located in the basement of Turlington Residence Hall. To combat the loss of the photos from the stolen cameras, Alabi said the committee is putting the IRC general assembly to work, sending them out to take photos of what they see as diversity.

“We have a lot of members that took cameras, so we will have a lot of photos from them,” Alabi said. In order to be in the competition, students should send pictures in to There is a limit of one photo submission per student. R i s h a v D e y, a f reshma n i n aerospace engineering and a member of t he event committee, said he believes the event is a fun way to promote diversity. “Unlike other events here that are already organized and just has the students attend, it is shaped by the student photographers. They play a huge role in creating the event because it is their view of diversity that we are celebrating,” Dey said. Students are encouraged to participate in the event by taking photos with the disposable cameras provided by IRC. The cameras can be found on top of Technician boxes, as well as in residence hall lounge areas. Cameras can also be checked out from the IRC office. Official rules for the competition can be found on the IRC website.




Lizzy Ozamiz, a junior in textile engineering, Andrew Enloe, a freshman in First Year College and Eric Wilbanks, a freshman in Spanish language and literature are all involved in the Student Studio’s version of Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. The musical is told from the villain’s point of view. The original production was made famous by actor Neil Patrick Harris.

“It’s a very intimate cast, so it lends itself to the Student Studio,” Hopping said. Steinberg said the show is something that college students

enjoy,” Steinberg said. Being a series originally made

Bands, another attribute distinguishes EagleDown from other bands wishing to make a name for themselves. Their usual lyrics are often products of not just composed love ballads, but also influences from their religious backgrounds. The band claims their music is for anyone — providing an option for those with a preference for “clean” lyrics. “The lyrics are also relevant to a lot of aspects of my life which is what I think makes a good song when you can relate to it,” Tucker Reyner, a fan of the band and sophomore in public and interpersonal relationships, said. Paired with the lyrics is the band’s usual style of rock and alternative-punk. “It is kind of a soothing rock genre — easy to listen to and rock out to as well,” Reyner said. Since 2003, EagleDown has often performed in churches. Atypical from their usual church setting, local venues in the area have hosted and sought out the band, such as Solas Café on Glenwood Avenue, and both the Brewery and Shakedown Street on Hillsborough Street. The band also plans to release an EP by the end of the semester. Currently, shows in Wilmington, Virginia and other locations are being scheduled. “I would say the thing that distinguishes them from any other up-and-coming band is that they play because they love to perform and play music together,” Ryan House, a junior in international studies, said. “They don’t just play to make themselves look good, but because they love what they do.”

State puts on,” Graham said. “It’s one of those things that not a lot of people will expect.” Steinberg added, “This could be one of the last stage productions of Dr. Horrible. It’s also really funny.” The students also emphasized that it is an underdog story which almost everyone can enjoy. “Everyone can feel overwhelmed at times, and we all like the underdog story,” Enloe said. “It’s a story that everyone can relate to,” Graham added.

The Dodos fourth album catchy, attention-grabbing Sarah Hager WKNC DJ

The San Francisco indierock band The Dodos released its fourth album, No Color, March 15. The duo Meric Long and Logan Kroeber teamed up with ex-member Keaton Snyder and tour mate Neko Case to create what is arguably the best album released this year. Fast-paced minimalist percussion and rhythmic vocals drive the nine-song album. Neko Case of The New Pornographers contributes backing vocals for f ive songs. Despite being the vocal powerhouse she is, Case adds just the right amount of harmonies so as not to overpower The Dodos. The album’s opener, “Black Night,” begins with attentiongrabbing drums and melodic guitar. A distinctive trait of The Dodos is its lack of bass drum. Instead, Kroeber swapped it out for a tambourine. This is an unconventional route to take, but it generates a unique formation of songs. Songs like “Going Under” and “Good,” which both feature Case, are very catchy. Influences of The New Pornographers are evident, but do not subdue The Dodo’s style. The drums pound in an excit-

ing cadence, balanced by the guitar work of Long. Four songs in, “Sleep” continues the up-beat folk-rock, utilizing repetition and harmonies. Case echoes in the background, adding depth to the song. “Don’t Try and Hide It” is a little different, starting out with acoustic guitar and vocals only. The drums sneak up after the first minute. The rise and fall of the vocals works well in this song, especially with the notes Case can hit. She harmonizes with Long, singing “You are nowhere/you are nothing vacant.” “When Will You Go” offers a mix of fast and slow beats, along with sections of both jam sessions and single-instrument solos. “Hunting Season” is similar to The Dodos’ earlier work, like their big hit “Fools,” off of Visiter. The Dodos found something that worked and stuck with it in this song. The lyrics are a little wittier, such as “this is what I’ve been waiting for, and the red light/you go be a girl I’ll be leaving tonight.” “Companion” begins by dancing around classical guitar-picking and ethereal vocals. The album’s closer, “Don’t Stop,” reverts back to the quick and choppy drum beats and steady vocals. The song finishes with a concluding crack

of the drums, leaving the listener with a racing heartbeat and wanting more. The raw and rackety drumming is the pulse of this album. The simple strumming and fastidious finger picking add spirit and bring the album to life. The chemistry between Long and Kroeber emulates that between members of a jazz band, in which each person plays off what the other is doing. The Dodos are not afraid of experimentation, which is easy to see as the music floats between pure indie rock and folk rock with elements of psychedelic. This album is a good follow-up to their 2009 release, Time to Die. The Dodos are on point, setting the bar high for the many new releases to come this year.

good thing going early on, maybe we can feed off of that and have a better result.” While 10 ranked teams participated in a battle of 15 elite programs from around the country, Choi said that inconsistent weather may have had an impact on how teams place. The team directly behind the Pack, No. 3 ranked University of Florida, checked in 13 shots behind State and struggled during a pair of uncharacteristically cold South Carolina mornings.  “The weather wasn’t the greatest the last few days,” Choi said. “We had a bunch of delays that kind of threw some people off the first day, but there was a lot of low scores to be shot in the last round.”  Assistant coach Chip Watson echoed Choi’s thoughts by saying that the first round struggle could be contributed more towards the weather rather than a lack of concentration.  “This event was just so different because of the weather,” Watson said. “It was cold, rainy, and windy. Obviously, you want to put three good rounds together, but you can only take what the golf course gives you.”  Despite the issue of weather, Watson focused on a strong field that should push the Pack up from its No. 26 ranking.  “It’s a tremendous field this week and we feel good about how we played,” Watson said. “Our strength of schedule ranking will go way up and we should move up in the polls.”

Although Butler University’s men’s basketball program has yet again busted the brackets of millions of Americans, it’s the Bulldogs’ former head soccer coach, Kelly Findley, who is making an impact in N.C. State athletics. Findley, a three-time AllAmerican, former professional soccer player, and the all-time winningest coach at Butler University, came to Raleigh after developing Butler soccer into an elite program nationally. However, the allure of competing in arguably the best soccer conference in the country and a chance to win a national championship led Findley to move south. “The ACC, the North Carolina sunshine, Dr. Yow and the direction the athletic department is going to head in, and ultimately a chance to win a national championship brought me here,” Findley said. “The transition has been tremendous. I brought all the guys that were with me at Butler because they all know what I expect, and what our

Men’s tennis continues to ‘fault’ against Wake Forest Despite wins for #1 and #2, Pack still falls. Sean Ege Staff Writer

On Tuesday the No. 54 ranked N.C. State Men’s tennis team hosted the Wake Forest Deacons at Pullen Park for the opportunity to secure the big “W.” The match-up was the first of five home games that will take place in the next two weeks for the Pack. The Pack headed into Tuesday’s matchup with four back-to-back losses, hoping to secure the win that would potentially start a new winning streak. N.C. State was unable to secure the win over Wake Forest as they fell to the Deacons 5-2 in overall match score. “I was really disappointed in today’s performance,” Dominic Hodgson, a junior in business administration said. “It was a match that had to be won. As a team we didn’t take advantage of our skill and a few players lacked the confidence needed to follow through.” The responsibility of singles #1 seed was in the hands of Dominic Hodgson. The #1 seed, usually played by Jaime Pulgar, was given to Hodgson due to an ankle injury suffered by Pulgar during spring break. Hodgson finished the match winning 6-4,6-1 and defeating the No. 63 ranked Wolff. “It wasn’t my first time
