New Talley aims to become student hangout. Bryan Le Correspondent

After almost two years of controversy, the renovation plans for Talley are being finalized. The design team in charge of renovating Talley has presented the project before the Campus Design Review Panel and had the plan approved, meaning it is almost ready to be made public for student examination. However, the designs are not final, and the design team wants to hear student input as they continue developing plans. According to Lisa Johnson, the N.C. State associate architect of the project, and Sumayya JonesHumienny, the project manager, the building is for students. Johnson said in student interviews, the general sentiment towards the current Talley Student Center was “There’s nothing there for me, why would I go there?” Plans to make Talley more appealing to students include a wide variety of dining options that span multiple f loors, a large, sloped green space that will provide a view of a movie screen and a late-night hangout called the Beacon. By day, the Beacon will be a dining area and by night it could possibly turn into a dance floor, a karaoke bar or a concert venue for bands. Jones-Humienny and Johnson said updates, including plan details and design graphics, would be posted on the Talley renovation website. The renovation plans also aim to make traveling to and through Talley much easier. Not only are building accesses more plentiful, but a pedestrian bridge that crosses the train tracks to the fourth floor of Talley is planned as well. “The building is intended to transform the whole campus, essentially,” Turan Duda, the lead design principal of the project and design partner of Duda/Paine Ar-

Amanda Jones Hoyle of the Triangle Business Journal reported that although more than 60 percent of students voted against the Talley renovations, the final call by administrators was to go ahead with the project. Marycobb Randall, president of the University Student Center Board of Directors and a senior in business administration, said she believes the controversy came about because students did not know what to expect from a new Talley, and the proposal came about at an inconvenient financial time. “When the vote was going on we were in the middle of an even worse economic downturn,” Randall said. “But through the past year students have learned stuff about the project,

The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics was founded in 1980 as the nation’s first public, residential high school. On March 5, the school made another historic achievement: setting the Guinness World Record for the largest food drive in one location in a 24-hour time period. The school collected 559,885 pounds of food to benefit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. According to Sue Anne Lewis,

project coordinator, the proceeds from this event alone will feed hundreds of people in the community during the next year. “According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average American eats 1,996.3 pounds of food per year,” Lewis said. “We just fed 280 people for a year.” Lewis also said the school is waiting for official approval of the record from Guinness. She said she hopes they will be in the next book of world records. “[Guinness] explicitly states that breaking a record does not guarantee that you will be in the book,” Lewis said.

In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg shook America to its foundations when he smuggled a top-secret Pentagon study to The New York Times that showed how five presidents consistently lied to the American people about the Vietnam War. President Nixon’s National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger called Ellsberg “the most dangerous man in America,” who “had to be stopped at all costs.” But Ellsberg wasn’t stopped. Facing 115 years in prison on espionage and conspiracy charges, he fought back. Ensuing events surrounding the so-called Pentagon Papers led directly to Watergate and the downfall of President Nixon, hastened the end of the Vietnam War and inspired Americans of all walks of life to forever question the previously unchallenged pronouncements of its leaders.

{Our view}

Japan crisis is not just Japan’s problem J

The Facts:

Four earthquakes have devastated four countries this past year, of these the strongest struck Japan. The 8.9-magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami that ravaged both the Japanese and California coasts and is expected to claim over 10,000 lives.

Our Opinion:

As a University and a student body we should extend the same help and aid to Japan that we have extended to lessdeveloped countries that have endured the same devastation. Students should not only be aware of this disaster, but also how it directly affects some of their peers.

apan has joined Haiti, New Zealand and Chile as a country devastated by natural disasters. Last Wednesday, the fifth most powerful earthquake in recorded history struck Japan. The Japanese prime minister claimed this was the worst disaster Japan has seen since World War II. Disturbing images of cars swept away by the soon-after tsunami have haunted people around the world. Such a tragedy, wherever it may occur, has astronomical effects on a nation and deserves immediate attention and aid, and we are in a position to help. President Obama has sent out instant relief and will continue to offer the United States’ support to Japan in this time of

crisis. As a University, we must act. Nearly eight percent of the student body is international students, some from Japan. Their families are among the millions facing the devastation. These students need to know we are giving our support to them and their families. As we did with Haiti, students should come together and help a nation in trouble. N.C. State has five organizations registered with the Student Organization Resource Center that deal with Japan and its culture. These organizations range from exploring Japanese culture to its ancient

martial arts. The roots stem from Japan heritage, a heritage being threatened by these natural disasters. Along with these organizations on campus, N.C. State is home to the N.C. Japan Center, which exists to increase and strengthen interactions between Japan and North Carolina. This statewide resource should be taken advantage of in this time of emergency to send the necessary relief. This can be done by using the center’s connection to the North Carolina community to spread awareness across the state. By our own mission for commu-

nity service, we are not only here to support our local, but also our global community. Organizations and students should spread awareness by teaming up with administration and other organizations devoted to student involvement to combat this disaster. This awareness should be met with a strong relief support. The response time for the Haitian disaster was instant, so Japan shouldn’t fall with the forgotten merely because it has more resources. Students need to come together, become aware and act on this crisis.

Response to State fans at a crossroads on Lowe Editor’s Note: The word limit was waived for this letter. Great job citing a poll of 104 State fans as representative of the fan base. I remember reading message boards years ago about N.C. State’s cellar dweller performance, and how there would be nowhere to go but up. Using Bzdelik as a gauge of what could happen when you bring in a new coach is asinine, much like using Wake’s football team from this past year as an indicator of how good Jim Grobe is. That Wake Forest team is plagued by a lack of talent and injuries to key players. Looking at Bzdelik’s resume at Colorado, I’d propose Wake Forest’s athletic director just hired a good friend to be head coach. If a similar hire were made at N.C. State, we’d be known as the Cardiac Pack for different reasons. Saying that at least you’re better than Wake isn’t saying much at all. Let’s list out some achievements during Lowe’s tenure: A comparable ACC record to Les Robinson, being the first ACC team to ever lose to East Carolina University in basketball, the JJ Hickson fiasco, and boasting one

of the worst momentum killing substitution patterns in the league. Recruiting can mean nothing when you aren’t succeeding with those players. It seems we just don’t have the horses to compete with talent-laden University of Virginia or Boston College, and that every night out seems to turn into a career game for an opposing player. You aren’t matching up against Ralph Sampson, Len Bias, or other ACC greats on the court, and to be honest, this is a pretty lackluster ACC to be playing against. Herb Sendek had pretty good recruiting classes, comparable first 5-year results, and ended up being a consistent “winner” when he wasn’t blowing leads like a gale force wind. But watching him squeak his way into the tournament each year, for less time than the Technician spends proofreading, was just as bad as not going at all. Sidney Lowe is a great guy. His contributions to State as a player put him in a league of his own, and I wish that he would have found success as our coach, but to blindly accept the “wait til next year” mentality I’ve spent the last 20 years listening to, is burying your head in the sand. I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard the phrase, “We just need to play smarter,” in post game pressers this year. Wanting to return to the glory days, and actually being able to get there, are two different things. “Like a high schooler adjusting to the college game...” was a great analogy to use, by year six he’d be gone.

Celebrating Stafford We have many opportunities to celebrate the possibilities of the future at N.C. State, but Dr. Stafford’s departure offers a chance to celebrate the amazing things that a dedicated administrator has already added to N.C. State. Dr. Stafford has shown a genuine interest in serving, supporting and befriending every student on campus for 40 years.  After all that time, his excitement for every student event or N.C. State tradition is even more apparent, and he remains the most enthusiastic believer in the potential of the N.C. State student population. I think I speak for every student in thanking him for his service and hoping he retires close to the home he’s created here at N.C. State. Kyle Winters senior, business administration

n the classroom of Rupert Nacoste, professor of psychology, students learn about interpersonal relationships and race, discuss personal stories of racial encounters and in this case, kick-start an on-campus campaign for change: Wake Up! It’s Serious. Story By joanne wu | illustration By alex sanchez and sharon eshet

One of many clubs and organizations on campus, the Wake Up! It’s Serious campaign is fairly new. The campaign itself was derived from an idea shared by a few of Nacoste’s students to raise awareness and shed light on continuing racial intolerance. “The campaign stands for change,” Natalia Ospina, a sophomore in psychology, said. “[It’s] all about passion and speaking up to intolerance.” The momentum gathered by a series of eyeopening events and the Union Activities Board’s presentation of racial diversity during this year’s Wolfpack Welcome Week led to the creation of the campaign. Since a paper noose was found hanging inside a University building in 2007, tensions were on

the rise as students interpreted it as a sign of racial intolerance. Sentiments continued to run high when racist graffiti in the Free Expression Tunnel was spotted in November 2010. Students responded to the message with strong reactions and ultimately, the Wake Up! It’s Serious campaign came to life. Angered, but inspired by these events, Nacoste’s classroom became an idea tank for impassioned students who wanted to do more with the idea of diversity. “We’re a unified group of passionate students on campus,” Taylor Elkins, a junior in psychology, said. Students from the campaign’s original group shared their own stories behind their intolerance of racism in the classroom. Some were personal

experiences where they were the victims of racial slurs, while others were witnesses of racism. After these stories were shared, Nacoste agreed to be the faculty adviser for the campaign. “I saw a real energy and passion from my whole class,” Nacoste said. “I asked them, ‘Do you want to keep this going?’” When it was clear the students wanted to continue the discussions, Nacoste chose a small number of students to plan the campaign. Its goal is to teach the public to speak out when they see racism in their everyday lives. So far, the idea burns brightly in the students’ minds, but the logistics of kick-starting the program prove to be a challenge. “We are moving strategically,” Nacoste said. “We’ll go into classrooms and touch different

parts of campus.” Over the years, racism and bigotry have made their mark on campus. Seen in classroom interactions, hidden in conversations or brazenly painted on the walls of the Free Express Tunnel, it has sparked the attention of this small group of students familiar with the pains of racial prejudice. As these individuals have been reminded of discrimination time and time again, they wish to send out a wake-up call across the University. Their ultimate message proclaims that dealing with racial intolerance includes everybody. As Mario Terry, a junior in psychology, put it, “I interpret silence as passiveness.”

evaluations, and the Counseling Center and Nutritional Counseling are also available for further recommendations. Visiting a personal doctor or counselor is also an outlet for treatment. Dr. Garrett-Piggott said, treatment is key. “Early treatment is really important,” she said. Anorexia nervosa and bulimia can be treated through several different types of treat-

ment. The severity of someone’s eating disorder determines what kind of treatment is necessary. In situations of immediate danger, emergency hospital treatment is needed. For less severe instances, medical care, psychotherapy and weight restoration are treatment options. The Mayo Clinic stresses that the hardest challenge for someone struggling with an eating disorder is denial. Often, the

patient does not feel they have a problem or need treatment. Some people promote their lifestyle choice—many proanorexia websites can be found on the Internet. Eating disorders are a continuous and lifelong battle for those suffering from it. Practicing positive coping methods, engaging in healthy relationships and managing stress are helpful in avoiding relapses.

tournament. “I think we made some adjustments in the type of pitching we’re facing,” coach Lisa Navas said. “We had coach [Kellie] Harper come talk to us on Thursday and get our spirits up a little bit. It was depressing losing to five games prior to that. We turned things around; we have to play for seven innings and put runs on the board.“ In its first game and home opener against Stony Brook, State took a 3-1 lead in the third inning over the Sea Wolves, but home runs from Taylor Chain, Jessica Combs and Lauren Maloney of Stony Brook gave the Sea Wolves the lead and propelled them to a 4-3 win. State attempted to battle back when senior infielder Alicia Abbott hit her first home run of the year, but the team fell short. However, the Pack was able to bounce back strong for its second game against Fairfield, taking the matchup with the final score at 7-2. Junior Morgan Peeler pitched a complete game giving up two runs on six hits and striking one out. Fairfield got out to a 2-1 lead over the Pack, but the Pack scored six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to take control of the game. Many of the players credit the offensive surge to the continued hard work they put in day after day during practice. “Just seeing the ball [made a difference]. [We put in] a lot

The Dukes started the game off with a home run from Ashley Burnham, but the Pack was able to recover again after giving up the early lead with an offensive onslaught, starting with a two-run homer from senior Alyssa Allbritten. Wells also hit a home run for the Pack, while sophomores Catlin Dent and Breanna Andrews drove in at least a run apiece.

After Maine got out to a 2-0 lead in the third inning, junior Toni Ann Willford picked up an RBI to put the Pack on the board. Then junior Landon Warren hit a home run and brought Abbott home to take the 3-2 lead and solidify the win. Its final game of the Chal-

Pack wins three straight After a five game losing streak, State bounces back in Wolfpack Challenge. Jeniece Jamison Senior Staff Writer
