Employers violate Facebook privacy Questions risen on whether employers have the right to ask for Facebook account info. Madison McLawhorn Staff Writer

News outlets have been buzzing this week with reports of companies asking job applicants to submit their Facebook passwords as part of the hiring process. Justin Bassett, a statistician from New York, had an experience first hand with an overly invasive employer. At the end of his interview, after a series of obligatory interview questions were asked, his interviewer searched for his Facebook profile on her computer. She discovered his profile had high privacy settings, meaning a minimal amount of information is shared. Not satisfied with her findings, the employer asked Bassett to re-

is the video, “Man’s Best Hope,” which will play on a looped reel throughout the day. The video demonstrates how veterinary medicine can be applied to human medicine. “We want to show North Carolina what their veterinary school is doing,” Lection said. “It started because of the need for veterinary medicine in the state, and this is a great opportunity to have it open. Normally, you can only get in if you’re bringing in an animal for treatment.” Green, though optimistic about the event, worried that a four year absence might mean a decrease in attendance. “The first few years, I was flooded with phone calls asking if we were having the event. The last year or so, though, I haven’t gotten any,” Green said. Despite this change, Jenkins says they are still expecting about 10,000 people to attend. “Students have spent quite a lot of time on this. It’s a huge time commitment,” Jenkins said. With such a large dedication of time and effort required, it’s interesting to learn the open house will not give students any class credit. “We’re doing it because we love our school and we want everyone to see that,” Jenkins said. This year’s event also marks the first public celebration of N.C. State’s 125th anniversary. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. No pre-registration is necessary. The open house is located at 1060

New app creates private online social networking “Capsule” allows people to share experiences on Internet in private. Shawn Thompson Staff Writer

The lack of privacy on Facebook and other social media websites is being tackled by a new application that will allow users to engage in social events without being monitored by unwanted viewers. Capsule was launched this January as an event planning and sharing app to organize social events and interactions. The new app provides users with a way to invite specific friends to an event without having it publicly displayed on Facebook or other social media sites. Saul Artiga, community manager of Capsule, said the co-founders, Omri Cohen

Bassett immediately declined and withdrew his application for employment with that company.          Similar cases are popping up all over the nation, and are becoming more prevalent as time goes on. Some believe this practice takes background checks a step too far. New York Sen. Charles Schumer and Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal are taking a stand against this new trend. “Employers have no right to ask job applicants for their house keys or to read their diaries — why should they be able to ask them for their Facebook passwords and gain

CapsuleCam is another feature users can use on the app. This particular feature gives users the ability to capture live moments of an event in real time and publish them to their personal Capsules. Cohen said CapsuleCam helps capture and document the event. “When you wake up the morning after, you will be able to see all the photos. They are already there. You can even see everything from different locations,” Cohen said. Capsules can be shared on other social networking sites if users want to share their private experiences, but privacy will remain as a significant factor for the app. Connecting to Capsule doesn’t require users to have a Facebook or Twitter account, and

unwarranted access to a trove of private information about what we like, what messages we send to people, or who we are friends with?” Schumer said in a press release. Police officers and 911 dispatcher hopefuls, along with other positions in public agencies, have received such requests. The United States senators plan to ask the U.S. Department of Justice to determine whet her companies demanding access to Facebook accounts of employees and prospective employees are in violation of federal law. The laws in question are the Stored Communications Act, which prohibits the intentional access to electronic information without authorization, and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which

prohibits intentional access to a computer without the authorization to obtain information.           “I am confident the investigation will show it does [violate federal law],” Schumer said in the release. Facebook’s management agrees. The social networking site’s chief privacy officer of policy Erin Egan posted some opinions of the company Friday.           “If you are a Facebook user, you should never have to share your password,” Egan said.          Andrew Noyes, one of Facebook’s spokespeople, further noted the self-proclaimed “social utility” company has no plans at the moment to take legal action on any of the practicing companies. However, they do recom-

mend such companies heed caution.         Facebook has more than their users’ interests in mind. “For example, if an employer sees on Facebook that someone is a member of a protected group, that employer may open themselves up to claims of discrimination if they don’t hire that person,” Egan said.          Others regard the practice as a sample of what will continue to penetrate society in the future. In a time where a person’s Facebook profile is accepted as a reflection of the individual, some may view it as a viable tool for determining applicants’ fitness for employment.

Gatlin will become student senate president and Lauren Collier will become UAB president. In a close vote, Joe Murray won the seat as student body treasurer over Alex Pomeroy by a margin of 6 percent. All results, including those of students’ respective colleges, can be found on the Student Government website. Walsh said he was eager to get into office and excited for the year to come. “I’m pretty honored to

be able to serve the student body,” Walsh said. “It has just been something that I haven’t been able to wrap my head around, but I know that it is going to be an unbelievable experience.” With a new group of students who have promised to look out for student needs, Walsh looks forward to what is to come. “Hopefully it will be a very exciting year at N.C. State,” Walsh said.

“When you wake up the morning after, you will be able to see all the photos.”

all the information shared on Capsule is restricted to only Capsule users. “What happens in Capsule stays in Capsule,” Cohen said. Facebook privacy concerns have created a market for apps like Capsule. However, some students have differing views on the need for these types of apps. “I don’t see the point of it. If you’re trying to go into the professional field, just keep your personal business off the Internet,” Jessica Evansel, junior in art and design, said. “You shouldn’t put it on there if you don’t want others to view your information. It’s an individual responsibility.” If the need for privacy isn’t enough motivation for using Capsule, other features that are available on the app may be of value. Farudi said certain student groups, publications or Greek

before the show began, Pizzarelli showed his passion for the performing arts by interacting and joking with the crew, audience and Molaskey. “John Pizzarelli represents what we try to do [with the Center Stage program],” Sharon Moore, director of the Center Stage program,

said. “[We want to] bring in incredibly talented artists who can really touch the audience.” When it comes to connecting with the audience, Pizzarelli has made an impression on the Center Stage program. His unique style has been sought out by the program on multiple occasions. Saturday’s performance marked the third time since 2006 that Pizzarelli has graced the University stages.

According to Moore, Center Stage hopes to keep him coming, as his performances have proven over the years to be some of its most-attended shows. The audience this weekend seemed to agree with Moore’s sentiment, giving the band a standing ovation as they hit the last note of the night, stood back from their instruments and took their final bow.

Angry Birds Space brings brand new gameplay to franchise. Story By Jordan Alsaqa | graphics courtesy of rovio


t’s been over two years since Rovio released Angry Birds to mobile devices. Since then, the simple game of using various birds to kill green pigs has exploded into a pop culture phenomenon. In that time, various expansions to the original game have also been released. Titles such as Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio have brought new levels to the market, but have never felt like true evolutions of the original version. All this has changed with the release of Angry Birds Space. With the addition of several new gameplay elements, a bevy of fresh graphical assets and original

bird types, Space is the true Angry Birds sequel fans have been waiting for. As always, the story behind the game is a simple one. Those dastardly green oinkers have once again stolen from the birds, but this time, they’ve f led to the far reaches of the galaxy in order to escape. That doesn’t stop the fa mi lia r fowls

from taking off on an interstellar journey for vengeance, where more slingshot action awaits. The narrative parts are brief, and players will quickly be dive-bombing green pigs and their hastily built structures. However, several new elements bring significant changes to the gameplay. Space introduces two major new gameplay elements. First, smaller planetoids litter the galaxy, and the gravitational pull of each one a f fec t the trajectory a nd power of a launched bird. A lso,

birds in the void of space will find nothing to prevent them from flying forward in a straight line. The new gravitational elements may seem simple, but their implementation in each level is masterful. Using the gravitational pull of a planet to zoom around and hit an otherwise out-of-reach bird is great, as is using free-floating space debris as deadly projectiles. Of course, the stars of the

series are still the birds themselves, and the newest additions to their ranks only add to the experience. First up is the redesigned yellow bird. Now endowed with purple feathers, a tap on the touchscreen after launch allows the bird to zoom to ex-

actly where your finger points. The other avian addition is a square, light blue bird that turns everything it touches to ice. This makes even the hardest structure materials shatter in one hit, and can kill pigs outright. The rest of the original birds all return as well, now decked out in sci-fi outfits. Perhaps the biggest problem with Angry Birds Space is the brevity of the experience. With only 60 levels available after purchase, the experience will be short-lived for well-trained pig hunters. Considering the amount of content Seasons has continued to receive as free updates, though, fans can rest assured that more levels will be released soon. On the whole, Angry Birds Space delivers more than enough bang for the single buck consumers are asked to pay. The evolution apparent in the title’s gameplay brings a renewed energy to the franchise, proving there’s still more fun to be had in the final frontier.

Viewpoint {Our view}

President Walsh, more than just a rave A

The facts:

As of midnight Tuesday evening, and officially from 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Andy Walsh will be the student body president for the 20122013 school year.

Our opinion:

In the year to come, Walsh should take his new position very seriously and use his power to best represent the students.

fter two weeks of campaigning, the results are in. While many are excited about Andy Walsh’s reign, some are a bit concerned. Walsh’s platform was built on student input gathered throughout the 2011-2012 year, information available to all candidates, but only utilized by one. While we know his platform and future actions as student body president will be student-oriented with the incorporation of social interactions, let’s not lose sight of the greater responsibilities Walsh will be held accountable for. Student body presidents must shoulder their biggest responsibility, which is the

role the office plays in the University. Not only are they the face for the student body, they act as a voting member of the Board of Trustees. Whenever there is an issue discussed at the Board meetings, the student body president is expected to not only be there, but also voice the concerns of the students. Walsh has already demonstrated this type of representation in November, when he chose not to support the bill condemning Amendment One to state legislatures. Walsh explained he was against the bill in the Diversity Debate due to it being

blindly written and not aligning with the views of the entire University student body. However, we can only hope he maintains this attitude while representing students in a more powerful venue. Although Walsh does promise a lot more social activities for students to participate in, he also promised to miantain transparency of the tuition and fee process. Unfortunately, this is also the most difficult promise to keep. Since the University will likely never tell us where all our money is going, it is up to Walsh to stay informed and act as the voice of the

students when the topic of tuition and fees is brought up in board meetings. Relaying information such as this back to students is vital in a successful presidency. Walsh would do well to take a hint from Thompson’s success at increasing communication with the HOWL email updates. This could help Walsh with his platform point of transparency. With such a potential to make a difference, we can only hope he takes his new position seriously, as he will be held accountable for the successes and failures of the upcoming year.

A Ron Paul primary


y mind replays a scene. I open the door, walk down to the end of the driveway and pick up the newspaper. It’s the first time I read the words “President Paul” in large print. And I know everything will be OK. I really Brian don’t ask for Anderson much in a Staff Columnist president. I’d like to stop bombing innocent people. I’d like for the government to stop spying on us. In essence, it is a simple repetition of what Diogenes asked of Alexander the Great: “Stand a little less between me and the sun.” A good half of my life has been dedicated to worrying about the future of this country. I’m no patriot, though. I’d turn it off if I could. My life would be easier if I’d never gotten into politics. The sight of dead bodies unknown to my peers, the

knowledge of an impending dollar collapse—I stagger under its weight. But then, I hear the sound of freedom growing in the Middle East like a new spring f lower, and I see Ron Paul stickers etched into nearby objects by random individuals with whom I feel an automatic kinship. These short glimpses pull me back in. I remember the importance of that for which I stand. Yes, we Ron Paul supporters can come off as psychotic sometimes. We take this misconception of our overwhelming passion with pride. Michael Suede w rites, “When we know that we personally have so much to gain from getting a person into the presidency that will uphold this principle, we look at those who defile Ron Paul’s name with the same disdain as we would a person who is seeking to rob us of our future prosperity.” To us, it isn’t merely politics. Ron Paul isn’t just a politician; he has become a sym-

bol of the things for which we yearn the most (namely, freedom). It disappoints me, though, when my friends—whom I still love dearly—reiterate the false notion the Democrats are the “good guys.” I’ll be the first to admit the other Republican candidates are no better. A society can be judged by the people it imprisons and whether Rick Santorum is running for president. T he Un ited St ates is screwed on both counts. I still remember the day President Obama was inaugurated into office. After eight years of the Bush administration destroying our constitution, even a light bulb would have sufficed as an adequate means to light the world. But it has been three years, and the Obama administration has proven itself to be an echo ringing too loudly in the vein of George W. Bush. Obama lobbied the Iraqi government for a continued U.S. presence. He sanctioned

tens of thousands of contractors to remain in the country. He moved soldiers into Afghanistan and then lied about a withdrawal. He assassinated an American citizen without due process. He stole tax money and put it in the hands of irresponsible corporations. All I ask is for you to give one chance to Ron Paul, even without sacrificing your potential vote for the current administration. I urge every one of you to register today as a Blue Republican, an organization run by progressives who have stuck to their principles and are voting for Ron Paul as a beacon of hope. Let’s not be the people who choose Romney, Santorum or Gingrich as potential Republican runners. We’re a little better than that, and you can help us stay that way.

Gearing up for N.C. State’s 125th.

Our short attentio…


n the not-too-distant past, people used to have regular correspondence via the U.S. Postal Service, people got their news from newspapers and magazines, and the only people who we re c onsidered your friends were people you actually had a desire to Jon Lewis Staff Columnist be around. Compared to t he age before, these outdated forms of communication and information propagation brought the speed at which people learned things to a whole new level. It was a glorious revolution of people being informed and able to get valuable information to the masses. With the advent of the Internet and the implementation of the 24-hour news networks, the speed at which information was disseminated became nearly infinite.

Between school computers, public library computers, free Wi-Fi at nearly every fast food restaurant and coffee shop and at least one television on a news channel in any bar, everyone in America has the means to witness the vast amount of information constantly hurled around. The ease of access to this information is a well-honed double edged sword. On one hand, we have the capability to see and hear about everything going on in our country and in the world. This gives us the opportunity to form our own opinions after synthesizing all the data. On the other hand, we become saturated with information. We become numb to news updates and no longer respond to videos or reports of violence. It becomes too easy for us to accept what people are saying without trying to look through the presenter’s bias. In turn, we too become biased to whatever we hear first. It also makes

us lose the ability to focus on one problem for more than two seconds before another newer, fresher, more interesting story takes us by storm. The inability our current culture has to maintain interest in a story for more than a week prevents people from actually seeing the end of a story. As soon as people get bored with hearing about an injustice or atrocity, they think the problem goes away. Already Kony 2012 has fallen out of public interest and has been replaced by an uproar against publicly charged George Zimmerman, the overzealous and possibly racist community watch volunteer, for shooting Treyvon Martin. This instance illustrates how quick we are to believe the first thing we hear and how easily we get bored with the last thing. Before people heard all the details surrounding the case, their minds were already made up that Zimmerman was with-

out a doubt in the wrong and there was no possible way his actions were justified. Keep in mind, the case has yet to be fully investigated and while the details of the story do seem to point in one direction, it is vital to wait until the full story is known. But of course, we don’t have enough time to wait for all the details. We’re too hungry for a fresh story to keep us interested, and it won’t be long before congressmen dressed in hoodies and the name Treyvon Martin are something that we ask “what was that again?” Before Kony there was SOPA and before SOPA there was Occupy. Before those there was. . .huh, it seems to have slipped my mind. What was I doing again? Oh yeah, I’m outraged at whatever someone tells me to be outraged at next!

page 7 • thursday, march 29, 2012


You think the students in the scuba and fly-fishing P.E.s look ridiculous, just wait until you throw a multi-color parachute over your head. As cool as it is to be inside a technicolor mushroomed parachute, those outside the class will begin to look at you a bit differently. Of course, at the end of the day, you’re under a technicolor parachute—we know who is really winning here. We will spend the first two weeks of our kickball unit on pitching. Pitching seems simple, roll a ball 15 feet towards someone in a straight line; however, for some reason this seems like an impossible task. We will first work on pitching without the ball, 90 percent of pitching mental; the other half is physical. If you can conquer yourself, you can conquer the ball.

Instead of warming up with a lap around the track, we’ll be playing a game of jailbreak dodge ball. There’s nothing like the stinging pain of a ball to the face to warm you up.


The last week we will spend working on expanding our vocabulary of obscenities. You need to be quick on your toes in response to someone picking up and rolling back to you a perfectly rolled ball. Flash cards suggested.

P.E. K-5


As you sign up for fall semester classes, we urge you to check out P.E. K-5, a new course offered from our physical education department. Coming this fall will be a class to return you back to the days of yore, back to the days of Velcro, Dunkaroos and Yo-Yos. This fall, the P.E. department presents to you a class that lets you enjoy all the P.E. activities of elementary school without the nonsense—i.e. the Presidential Fitness test. Come out twice a week and take part in some of your favorite games. We’ll play them all: four-square, double-dutch, jailbreak dodge ball, kickball, and of course, the parachute game. If you’re graduating in May, you may want to reconsider. Put real life on hold for another semester and come play some games.

…what dodgeball shots to the groin feel like post-puberty. …as fond as your memories are of the parachute game, you have no idea what the parachute game was all about. ... allowing pegging to force an out in kickball after the age of 10 is a serious health hazard. …as much as you work out, your propensity to be picked last hasn’t changed. still don’t know how to jump in during a round of double-dutch. ...the fatiguing nature of these games absent a mandatory nap time. much better light-up shoes made everything. much you miss the simplicity of elementary school.

Fulfills: P.E. 200 level or gender studies requirements Snacks: Each class member will be responsible for bringing snacks for one class meeting.

Class meeting time: T TH 11:30 – 12:45 Seats currently available: 30 Credit hours: Negotiable Grading options: S/U, to take P.E. K-5 for a grade is demeaning to the spirit of the class.

In our kickball unit, you will come to recognize your moment at the plate as more stressful than any tee-shot. With all eyes on you, those without perfect coordination will be in constant fear of a whiff that’ll land them not only on their rear, but with a face as red as the Brickyard. This is to say nothing of the anxiety induced by having to field pop fly ball in center field.

The Fifth is the Technician’s first parody section based on of collegiate life. It is in no way a reflection of the Technician or a representation of its views.

The Fifth:

Due to the constant dampness of Miller Fields, the intramural fields, kick ball will take place indoors. The indoor nature poses difficulty for those trying to slide to safety. One slide into second on the hardwood will have you yearning for the rug burns of old.

In particular, the unique blending of musical styles has been described as a type of musical alchemy by numerous critics. “People wanted us to work together,” Pizzarelli said on teaming with his wife for the show. The result was a marriage of jazz and Broadway. Throughout the evening, Molaskey was able to show off her theater background through her performance. Molaskey embellished every note she sang with facial expressions and body movements characteristic of the Broadway stage, adding to the depth of the performance. Pizzarelli also worked to bring his personality to the forefront. The musician scatted the notes he played in his blazing guitar solos and

State ends skid in double header Pack goes 1-1 in back-toback games in Charlotte. Staff Report N.C. State split its double header against UNC-Charlotte yesterday, 1-5 and 9-7. The second win also ended the Wolfpack’s six-game losing streak. The Pack was able to make contact with the ball for the first time in the top of the second inning with a single from sophomore first baseman Leah Jones after junior infielder Bethany Wells was called out off a fielder’s choice. After senior pitcher Morgan Peeler stepped in to pinch run, sophomore third baseman Scout Albertson was able to bring the run home, bringing the score to 1-0, State. Despite striking first blood on the scoreboard, UNCC responded with a run in the bottom half of the inning to tie the score at one even. The 49ers came back with a vengeance in the bottom of the third inning, scoring four runs off two hits, the second

being a grand slam from Briana Gwaltney, bringing the score to 1-4. State couldn’t recover from this deficit and couldn’t muster another hit until the seventh inning. Peeler got the decision on the mound, garnering a loss, in 2.1 innings pitched. She is now 5-6 on the season. The second game proved to be a complete 180 from the first, as State caught fire on at the plate early in the game. In the top of the second inning, Katie Mansilla hit a triple to left center and brought home State’s first run of the game. Albertson soon followed with a home run of her own to bring home two more runs, bringing the score to 3-0, State. Charlotte remained resilient in the bottom of the third inning, scoring four runs to take the lead, 4-3, off a grand slam from Gwaltney. State posted another five runs in a monster top of the fifth. Albertson highlighted the inning by scoring two runs off a double to right

center field. The Pack picked up another run in the seventh inning, bringing the score to 9-4. UNCC began to charge back in the last inning by scoring three runs from four hits, but their efforts fell short and the Pack walked away with the win to snap its six game skid. The ball was flying off the bat for Albertson, as she was responsible for four RBI’s in the second game. Wells turned in a huge game for the Pack in its second matchup, picking up three hits from four attempts at the plate. She also scored two runs and brought in one. Freshman pitcher Emily Weiman picked up the win for the Pack on the mound. She struck out 10 batters in seven innings and allowed 11 hits. The Pack will resume play at the Curtis and Jacqueline Dail Softball Stadium this weekend and continue its ACC schedule in a threegame series against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

After the game Senay recalled the ball that won the game for the Pack. “I was just working for something to drive and just sitting on something inside and luckily he threw a fastballl low and inside,” Senay said. “I was afraid the runner was getting close to catching it, I threw my hand up and saw he about to dive for it,” Senay said.  To put this win into perspective, Senay said that this win was on the pack really needed. “Its big coming after the Carolina series loosing two straight we get this win and going in to Virginia with a win under our belt we’ll see what we can do this weekend,” Senay said.

Pack wins in extra innings against Pirates N.C. State pulls out a hardfought win against in-state rival ECU. Cory Scott Staff Writer

In a game that saw 2,570 people in attendance, the Wolfpack defeated the Pirates of East Carolina in 11 innings. N.C. State got started early in the second inning when junior outfielder Tarran Senay hit a double that scored one run. Senay advanced to third base as the throw went home. Junior outfielder Bryan Adametz would then send Senay home with a sacrifice bunt. The lead for the Wolfpack would be short lived as the Pirates exploded in the top of the fourth inning. Tim Younger would hit a ball just past the outstretched hand of the pitcher. Then Corey Thompson would place a line drive past freshman infielder third baseman Trea Turner. John Wooten then hit a one run double to make the score 3-1 with no outs. Drew Reynolds then put a well placed grounder past senior first baseman Andrew Ciencin, making the score 3-2. Chase McDonald would pop a sacrifice fly to knot up the score at three a piece. In a game that seemed to look like an offensive dominated game early, both teams went cold for the next six innings, making the game shift to a defensive battle. It seemed as if the game would be decided by which team would make the first mistake.  In the top of the 10th inning the Pirates seemed poised to take the

Quote of the day “Its big coming after the Carolina series loosing two straight we get this win and going in to Virginia with a win under our belt we’ll see what we can do this weekend.” Tarran Senay, junior outfielder

“It was a really great feeling after we beat Georgetown. Everyone ran outside yelling and screaming and even got the Wolfpack cheer started. It was really cool to have that spontaneous gathering of people. I felt pretty good about playing Kansas. I knew it would be a tough game. We definitely over-achieved during the season and we have a great class coming in next year. Currey Nobles freshman, chemistry

“To start the NCAA tournament, I thought that we should have definitely gotten in. The ACC is a much stronger conference than other conferences. If you broke down our schedule, we played stronger competition so we were more tournament ready. I was really excited we made the tournament. It was especially exciting that we were the last team picked in the last bracket. I thought we stood a great chance once we made it there.” Matt Jones sophomore, accounting


fter putting itself in a must-win situation in the ACC Tournament and being the final team announced in the NCAA Tournament Selection Show, the Wolfpack took it’s No. 11 seeding and ripped off a run to the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament, defeating No. 6 San Diego State and No. 3 Georgetown before falling to the No. 2 seed Kansas Jayhawks in St. Louis, Mo. Throughout the tournament, the Pack kept the hopes of the student body and fans on its shoulders.

“After the first round on NCAA Tournament, the fact that we won really turned the attitude of the team around. I think it made the whole school proud of the team again. It’s been a long time since we could be proud of them in the tournament. What they did after beating San Diego State was just icing on the cake. When you look at the people now as to who were here a year ago, it’s the same team. The success can be credited to a new coach as well. The players are more motivated to play and perform well under him.” Chris Griffen junior, agriculture business managment

“After we beat Georgetown, we had all this hype. I just knew we were going to win and this would be the year we might go all the way. I was just excited we made it to the Sweet Sixteen. Last year, we did not even make it to the tournament. Coming in and going that far was such a great feeling. We definitely got cheated against Kansas. It was disappointing to lose but we did so well; it was that much harder that we lost. We did a great job and I am so proud to be a part of the Wolfpack and I am ready for next year.”

“After we won against SDSU, I was really excited. I was excited we got to play in the tournament. After the win, I think it gave us a boost to do well in the tournament. I was a little wary when we played Georgetown, because Georgetown is such a well-known team. It was a great way to establish ourselves in the tournament and I was so excited that we did win.” Mary Grant junior, psychology

“I was hoping we would beat Kansas, although I was not expecting it. I just love how we made it this far especially considering last year and how much progress we made. Next season, I look forward to getting farther than we did this year. I would just like to say congratulations to the basketball team. I know they worked hard for it and I love being a part of the Wolfpack.” Alexandra Johnston freshman, human biology
