Senates push for parental leave
Honoring the fallen
Student and faculty senates help support parental leave policy for graduate students. Elise Heglar Deputy News Editor
Sophomore in German studies Kyle Backhus guards the Memorial Bell Tower late Thursday night. The annual vigil is held in memory of those who have served in the military, starting at 8 p.m. and running overnight until the morning of Veteran’s Day.
Faculty and student senate are working together to help graduate students receive parental leave benefits. Montse Fuentes, the department head for statistics, headed up the initiative when she discovered that graduate students who take time off after having a child are liable to lose any financial benefits they receive. This includes health insurance offered to full-time students. “I had a graduate student who was teaching and had to have a C-section when she had her baby. She was going to lose her financial support and insurance and that is a problem for a lot of people,” Fuentes said. The plan that is currently being pitched is modeled after UNCChapel Hill’s plan for parental leave for graduate students. The plan has already received unanimous support from the student and faculty senates and Fuentes hopes to gain similar support from the Provost. A meeting is being held on Tuesday night to officially vote on the implementation of the plan. “Hopefully he [the Provost] sees the relevance of having that policy,” Fuentes said. Fuentes said having parental leave available for graduate students is important because it allows people who have families to continue their education without being concerned about additional financial or grade issues. In addition to the six weeks of leave that the plan allots for paternal leave, a one-semester extension for all coursework would be allowed. “It’s important that we are able to help students,” Fuentes said. Marcia Gumpertz, assistant vice
Provost for faculty and staff diversity, has also been working on the project. She said that having time off with a new child in the house is something that every new parent is entitled to. “For students who have a new child in the family it’s a huge event and very difficult to be in school with a new baby and not take time off,” Gumpertz. According to Gumpertz, the parental leave plan has been in the works for a couple of years. Several student organizations have expressed support of the program but it was the advanced scholars program that really pushed for it to happen. “The advanced scholars brought attention to department heads and really got it some attention,” Gumpertz said. There is not any official data recorded for the number of graduate students who would benefit from the implementation of this policy, but Gumpertz says that it is a significant amount. “A lot of our graduate students are having families and need that time off,” Gumpertz said. Gumpertz said that there has been a lot of positive support for the program so far. “Most people have been very supportive. The only reservation is people wondering if they have a graduate student work in a lab, how they would compensate for that work. But that is similar to normal paternity leave,” Gumpertz said. Jim Biglin, a senior in mechanical engineering, said that this policy would give students a chance to have the best of both worlds with school and family life. “It’s good because it gives more people an opportunity to further their career. Some people might feel held back with having a kid but this policy helps with that,” Biglin said. Gumpertz and Fuentes are hopeful that the policy will be put in place after Tuesday’s meeting. “This is something that would remove barriers for female and male graduate students who have families,” Gumpertz said.

Sauyers explained the reasoning behind her group’s decision to do this particular project; “We wanted to be unique, you see some of the other project options, like water fountains, around a lot, but not a ton of bubble machines.” The E101 classes had their choice of multiple project options such as a ball launcher, water fountain and bubble machine. This class is required for all first year engineering majors and requires them to use their creativity and problem solving skills for numerous projects.

Through community and co-teaching, history class offers new and different experience for students. Sarah Dashow Staff Writer
This spring, Blair Kelley, associate history professor at N.C. State, Tim Tyson, associate history professor at Duke University and author of Blood Done Sign My Name, and Mary Williams, acclaimed gospel singer, are collaborating on an offcampus course focused on southern black history. This will be the second time the three educators are collaborating for this course. The course is called The South in Black and White (HI 498, Section 003) and is being held at the American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham Tuesday evenings. Kelley said the community atmosphere and the coteaching method benefits students in that it broadens their experience and provides a view of southern history from different perspectives. “It was really exciting for the students to sort of be in a different kind of environment. I think it was different for them to see two professors who didn’t always agree on issues and sort of hash out things in an active classroom. I think it
was incredibly interesting for them to see Mary Williams, who sings the spirituals, the freedom songs, and so that the songs and the language of the movement through song becomes another text for the course,” Kelley said. “It was really a great chance for us to work collaboratively, and really I think it’s an interesting racial dynamic to have a black woman and a white man teach the same kind of thing, and he’s a white southerner so he has a particular experience with this history,” Kelley said. Cara Smelter, a senior in history, was enrolled in Kelley and Tyson’s class the last time it was offered. She discussed how the community affected her experience in the class. “I believe one of the best aspects of the class is the sense of community that is created. Since people are coming from different universities and the local community, it makes for quite the lively experience. We all had different opinions and perspectives on race in the south, but the course had the ability to unify all of us under the umbrella of striving to understand our place in history,” Smelter said. “The South in Black and White was by far the best and most unique class I have ever taken. Dr. Kelley and Dr. Tyson, along with Mrs. Mary Williams, are an amazing team, each bringing something different to the class. Mrs. Mary Williams teaches the spirituals and freedom songs, which I remember to this day. The
songs created a sense of community in such a diverse class,” Liz Paul, a senior in history and previously enrolled student, said. Above all, Kelley said the class aims to educate students on their own history so they can better understand the present. The course covers from before the civil rights movement, up through it, and even reaches modern day with issues on the Wake County School Board and immigrants in North Carolina. “I think teaching students to think critically about the ways in which older scripts of oppression are being sort of recycled, reused and re-imagined against new communities doesn’t necessarily change what’s fundamentally wrong,” Kelley said. Considering the recent vandalism on campus and that of the past, Kelley emphasized the importance of how a class like this can pertain to issues beyond what it covers. “I think today’s civil rights questions have interesting tieins to the civil rights questions of the previous generations. We can look at ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ and the comparison between the segregation of the military with African-Americans. There are really important parallels that we learn from those types of struggles that have gone in other generations, and those lessons make the push for equity easier if we can be good students of the past,” Kelley said. When questioned if the class
will continue to be offered, Kelley said she hopes it will, but it depends on student interest in the course. Derin Alabi, a senior in computer engineering, said the class sounded interesting, but she wasn’t sure if she would be able to take it. “I would get really sad and probably ver y emot iona l during this class, and I don’t think I could subjugate myself to that, but I feel like for those who are willing to learn and understand our past and other people, I think it’s a very important class to have,” Alabi said. In order to enroll in the class, students must contact Kelley. She said she encourages anyone interested to apply, regardless of major. “I am interested in anyone who is serious from across campus, no matter what discipline they’re from,” Kelley said. “I’d like to bring as many people who are sincerely excited about it. I think it would be great for people in education, for people who would like to take a break from some science and engineering and do something really different, people who have read Tim Tyson’s book and would like a chance to hear from him and explore the meanings of that.”

Carmike Blue Ridge 14 Cinema once was a haven for those looking to be entertained on the cheap. It earned the popularized name “$1.50” for its price structure. It recently changed its price to $2.00
Prices defying common sense C
The change in the price of the$1.50 theater is one of a couple pricing structures that have made us scratch our heads recently. We question the prices used in the dining halls, textbooks and Webassign.
armike Blue Ridge 14 Cinema once was a haven for those looking to be entertained on the cheap. A trip to Blue Ridge would ensure that you could see Hollywood’s best for $1.50. Its price structure became so popular that it was known better by its price, referred to more often as the D50 ($1.50), rather than its actual name. Last week the cinema changed its price to $2.00. Say goodbye to the dollar-fifty and hello to the two-dollar-buckaroo? This change, which goes against the name synonymous with the theater, makes us reflect on other pricing structures in and around campus that simply defy logic. The prices of dining hall food, absent a meal plan, strike fear

into the hearts of college students on a budget. With a cost approaching $8.00, it prompts students without a meal plan to look elsewhere. Sure, the pricing structure is comparable to other buffets, but its not a comparable product. It’s not as extensive a selection. The pricing structure, in effect, isolates dinning hall patronage to only those with a meal plan. The exorbitant costs of new textbooks are something to be expected. Textbook publishers are combating low-demand for their product, outside of college nobody rushes to the store for a finite math textbook, and thus jump at any chance
to make a buck. However, we need not perpetuate the cycle. The new editions are updates, rarely whole-scale revitalizations. There is no reason we should be expected to spend 300 percent more and not gain that much in content. When a new edition is priced at 300 percent the cost of one that is used, we should find a way to allow for the use of the used. Finally, and possibly the most absurd pricing structure, is that of Webassign. There is no reason we should repetitively pay for it in every class that utilizes it, we don’t pay a fee for every class that utilizes Vista. Webassign was created by N.C.
State, if anyone should be subsidizing it should be us. Technology costs are often cited as the reason for the extra costs for Webassign. Are technology costs like the change fees airlines charge? The concept of Webassign sounds almost perfect for some classes. It’s a great way to do your homework at your own pace and get instant feedback; however, the extra price soils their appeal and, at times, amplifies our aggravation with the system. We’re not endorsing the sentiment that everything should be free; however, we do endorse the notion that prices should not make us scratch our heads.
The American nightmare
ollege is expensive, and with the economy currently in shambles it’s even more difficult to reach the sacred degree we are all working towards in order to get the job that pays well, so we may all live our American d re a m. T he process itself is turning into the American nightmare. The cost of Trey going to colFerguson lege has always Viewpoint Editor been seen as an exorbitant amount to merely learn valuable knowledge. You spend thousands of dollars to have three letters appear at the end of your name. Even at N.C. State, the land grant University that aimed to create affordable education for all students, the sticker price for education is becoming increasingly difficult to pay for. It is continually rising, especially when the General Assembly hikes up the cost; ensuring the state gets their dues from it. Barely any student can graduate without owing money to the banks, or worse, the government. According to information gathered by Degree Central, the average college graduate owes about $23,700 for their college education. For a bachelor’s degree, a graduate’s average income straight out of college is $47,000. Taking into account the necessary cost and standard of living for a recent graduate, we can subtract an estimate of $22,000. This leaves $25,000 for other expenditures, including payments towards student loans. This is not taking into consideration if the graduate wants to get married, have kids or even put money towards retirement. With the rise of interest rates, as well as the increasing cost of living and education in America, graduates cannot afford to pay off their educational debts until years after they graduate, causing the national student debt to hit $1 trillion this summer. To combat this debt, President Barack Obama’s new plan for student loan payments aims to cap annual loan payments at 10 percent, rather than the current 15 percent. The atmosphere surrounding higher education in the United States is not one of learning
and gaining knowledge, but rather how much it costs to receive it. This is what needs to change, and it can be done by lifting the burden of finances onto education. University systems in other countries demonstrate their importance by creating a more feasible learning environment, focusing on knowledge of the material without the added pressures of finances to fund the learning. For example, in the United Kingdom, college tuition for home students is capped at 3,375 euros, which is equivalent to tuition here. The difference is that the government subsidizes this cost, allowing students to go to school for a lower cost. This results in more students graduating, and thus more graduates pursuing postgraduate degrees. Obama’s new plan will help students pay back their loans at a lower rate, which is necessary for education in this economy. However, a change should not only be made to student loans, but more broadly to the exorbitant price of college itself. College is tough enough without the cost of it rising. The specifics of the plan not only lower the interest rates on loans and consolidate payments, but it also forgives the borrower after 20 years rather than the current 25 years. Along with these conditions, the plan provides student borrowers with more information on finances and the various options of taking out loans. While this plan seems to be the solution, the feasibility seems bleak. To lower interest rates and combine payments only gives universities more of a right to increase tuition. The real way to resolve this issue is focus on college tuition by keeping it capped at a more manageable amount. This way, loans would not even need to be a question, and we could keep students in school while keeping them in good credit standing. As a country, we should not allow money to dictate our education, but rather knowledge. Send Trey your thoughts on the cost of education to letters@technicianonline. com.

ooking at my schedule a few days ago, I was shocked to realize that just three weeks remain in this semester. Of course, I have always known the semester lasts about fou r mont hs before the finals in December, but the pace of activ ities sometimes has the capability Shivalik to erase such Daga facts from my Staff Columnist memory. As I sat back taking in this news, my thoughts veered back to the start of the semester when everything was warm, fresh and, well, easy. As the semester progresses, we are struck by the onslaught of assignments, quizzes and midterm exams. The optimism of the early days vanishes into the air of resignation and repetition. Some of us who also work part-time tend to have it harder than the rest. For seniors graduating this semester, these four months are more of an emotional roller coaster, rather than an amalgamation of classes and job interviews. For freshmen, their early foray into college life involves coming to terms with this newfound freedom and choosing their path for the days ahead. And for the rest of us in-betweeners, it was just life as usual. Another semester, another round of nights spent practicing procrastination and ex-
tended caffeine-binging. Looking back, this semester seems to have had certainly more than the stereotypes described above. From the beginning, every student noticed the multiple lacerations on campus due to huge Caterpillar machines. Construction has been a pain throughout these four months, and will most likely continue to be in the spring. Some would argue that this inconvenience will only bring greater amenities and facilities in the future, and though they are right, it does nothing to reduce the pain of the present. Diversity was another major issue that attracted a lot of attention during the second half of this semester. With the state legislature planning to readdress gay marriage, the campus became a hot debating arena. Student Government chipped in with diversity-favoring Tshirts and the declaration opposing the state legislature. However, some narrow-minded person decided to bring his point across by defacing University property.

stellar performance of the season, Tom O’Brien insured our fifth-straight victory against UNC. Additionally, N.C. State fans witnessed the team’s first shutout after more than four decades. UNC coach Everett Withers arguably gave the worst interview of his career when he derided the Pack for low graduation rates. Soon after these comments were made, UNC’s chancellor, Holden Thorp, apologized to Chancellor Randy Woodson for this noxious outburst. We don’t know how the two chancellors discussed this in private, but the Pack’s reaction to the baby-blue cheaters was loud and clear: speak less, work more and try again. With a week left before Thanksgiving, everyone is busy studying for his or her last quizzes, or hurrying to finish that last assignment. After Thanksgiving comes Dead Week, which is notoriously never dead; I myself have three assignments due that week. Overall, this semester has largely been fun, interesting and engaging. Let us keep the momentum going for a bit longer and hope the football team still has some surprises in store. It’s time we allowed ourselves to relax just a little bit, but keep in sight the finals that are inching closer.

Taking the hairy route for charity Andrew Branch Deputy News Editor
Grooming is going out of style for many men this November as No-Shave November picks up steam. On the heels of breast cancer awareness month in October, men use November to grow their facial hair for a variety of charities and/or to raise awareness for men’s health issues. Students and others around the globe are getting involved. Connor Reisenbigler, a sophomore in business administration, is among those refusing to shave this November. “[I’m doing it] for raising awareness for prostate cancer,” Reisenbigler said. “It’s just a fun way to let people know it’s out there.” Many students, including Reisenbigler, are struggling to maintain their work’s hygiene codes. “I work for Chipotle so I don’t know how long I’m going to be able to do it before they tell me to shave it, but I thought I could go till they told me to stop,” Reisenbigler said. The beards aren’t all that are in, however. Many men are growing mustaches. Movember, a charity for which men grow mustaches and enlist donors, has grown significantly in the U.S. and supports Livestrong and the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Not to be confused as another name for No-Shave November, Movember began in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia

echnician’s weekly “Spotted in the Brickyard” highlights a fashionable student found in the Brickyard. From eclectic and vintage to classic and chic, Technician will be sure to bring you fresh looks every week.
Freshman in First Year College Davante Falls escapes from the UAB center dressed as a prisoner in the Brickyard on Wednesday. Falls is in a pair of H&M shoes ($50) and his prisoner outfit from Party City ($50). “I’m dressed up as a prisoner to do live marketing in the Brickyard for our Kemba Smith presentation,” Falls said. According to Falls, Smith was wrongly convicted of a crime she didn’t commit and she speaks about raising awareness about domestic violence, drugs and federal incarceration.
Additional services for cancer patients:
One of the services offered through Livestrong is free cancer navigation services, according to Lisa Potter, Movember’s public relations officer.
“For a college student who may not have insurance or may not know what to do or may have just found out that he had cancer and not know what the next steps are, they can call this number and for free they will get help with their insurance, with finding clinical trials, and with treatment options.”
“He’s kind of the god of moustaches,” Vuke said. “But honestly I’ll take whatever I can get at this point. I’ve made some progress—it’s actually noticeable now—but unfortunately I don’t think I will be able to do anything too crazy.” From Potter’s experience at Movember, the trucker look has fallen out of favor in lieu of other things—like the 70s ‘stache. “It doesn’t come too far down on the mouth like a handlebar. It’s just a nice, bushy, beautiful 70s porn star,” Potter said. When it all comes down to it, however, it’s about men’s health. “For us it’s really about getting men to be proactive about their health,” Potter said, “see a doctor for an annual physical…and really take charge of their health much like women often do, thanks to the women’s health movement.”

Technician CROSS COUNTRY
friday, november 11, 2011 • Page 7
A day in the shoes of Andie Cozzarelli football An in-depth look at a day in Andie Cozzarelli’s practice schedule. Rebecca Fiorentino Staff Writer
With the men’s team closing out a victory two weeks ago in the ACC, and the women’s team tying for third with Virginia, fans may forget that it is not only football season; it is the peak of the cross country season as well. One might think of cross country as simply running, but there is a lot of background work put into a sport with no time outs, substitutions or water breaks. Being a part of the cross country team also means that one is a member of the indoor track team, as well as the track and field squad. Participating in three varsity sports in three different seasons ultimately means no offseason. Cross country training starts after a one to two week break from track, where the team runs three miles every other day. Then track season training begins again following cross country, with a one to two week break as athletes run every other day during the end
of November. Senior Andie Cozzarelli has been participating in cross country for four years, and learned early on that merely running every day is not going to get her where she needs to be. “In order to perform well we have to be just as disciplined outside of practice as we are during practice,” Cozzarelli said. “A part of our training is injury prevention, and we must keep up with our strength training, including going to the chiropractor and getting massages regularly when something doesn’t feel right.” The Technician decided to do a walk-through of a normal day in the running shoes of Cozzarelli, who is balancing a 3.11 GPA in Civil Engineering as well as the full-time job of being a student athlete. 4:00 a.m. – “I wake up starving, with a need to eat usually a bowl of cereal, trail mix and coffee, but then I go back to sleep for a little.” 6:15 a.m. – “I wake up again and head to practice early with my roommate Anna Gillespie, who is also on the team, to foam roll or get treatment.” 7:00 a.m. – “We begin with a warm up of two laps around the track, coordination drills and stretching.”
7:45 a.m. – “I begin my 55 to 60 minute run which turns out to be about 8 to 8.5 miles around campus, followed by 8x100 meter strides when I am finished.” 9:00 a.m. – “We all have to do a core workout or circuits that range from 15-30 minutes, then I shower and see my trainer for treatment and either head to class or work on homework.” This is a normal morning for Cozzarelli, but practice ranges in distance coming to a total of 55-60 miles per week, for the men’s side, normal mileage per week is around 80 miles. However, Cozzarelli has not always been a runner. Attending Apex High, she was a part of the 4-A championship soccer team in 2007, but cross country has been her passion. In other sports, if an athlete puts all he or she can into practice, he or she is able to perform at that level during a match or game, but in cross country it is a different story. “Running is a test of your own mental toughness. You can be perfect in practice, but if you aren’t mentally tough come race day, nothing you’ve done in practice really matters,” Cozzarelli said. “Other sports use running as a form of conditioning or punishment, but in

our case it’s just another day.” Cozzarelli started out with an 18:03 best time on the 5k course in high school, and has dropped over a minute while in college. Her hardest workout that puts her mental toughness to test involves running a mile on the track, running twice around Miller Fields, and then returning back to the track to repeat this, accelerating in speed with each circuit. Despite the tough workouts, the competitiveness of the sport is what keeps Cozzarelli on her toes. This weekend while the football team is going up against Boston College, the men’s and women’s cross country teams will be competing in Louisville, K.Y. at the NCAA Southeast Regional meets in hopes of proceeding to Nationals. “In running, you’re in control of your own outcomes,” Cozzarelli said. “It’s awesome seeing the hard work you’ve put in pay off when you hit that mark you’ve been trying to reach but at one point didn’t seem possible. “There is nothing better than a last minute surge at the end of the race to beat an opponent at the line.”

Pack poised to ruffle Eagles’ feathers
O’Brien visits BC for the third time since leaving Chestnut Hill. Rishav Dey Staff Writer
Location: chestnut hill,
State has never won at Boston College since the Eagles joined the ACC, and to continue the quest toward a postseason berth, the Pack is going to have to change that. The Wolfpack will be hoping to move one step closer toward bowl eligibility when it takes on the Eagles in Chestnut Hill, M.A. this Saturday. The game is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on the ACC Network. N.C. State (5-4, 2-3 ACC) is coming off a strong weekend in which the Pack shut out arch rival North Carolina, 13-0. State will be hoping to build on that performance against Boston College (2-7, 1-5 ACC), who has endured a season to forget through nine games. The Eagles have already been eliminated from postseason competition for the first time in 13 seasons. Quarterback Mike Glennon will be looking to have a big game against Boston College, whose defense is ranked No. 114 in the country in sacks. On the other side of the ball, linebacker Terrell Manning will be coming off of a stellar weekend where he led the team with 11 tackles and one sack. Manning said he felt that the defense’s performance was due to the hard work the players put into practice, and he was finally satisfied to see the results. “I felt like as a defense we knew we could do it,” Manning said. “We watched film, we practiced

hard, and we went the extra mile. It meant a lot. I think the overall objective was to get the win and finish the game, but the goose egg (shutout) at the end; it was a statement for our defense. “We know we can play defense against anybody.” The Eagles average over 36 run attempts per game compared to 27 pass attempts per game, and pose a similar challenge to what the Pack faced against UNC. Manning, who was also named ACC player of the week in the linebacker category for his performance against the Tar Heels, said there are several similarities between both UNC and
