State budget cuts may incite tuition increase BUDGET CUTS MAY INCITE TUITION INCREASE BUDGET CUTS TO INCITE TUITION INCREASE

$70 million in budget cuts is a vast improvement over the proposed $175 million reduction, but the cuts will still affect everyone. Nathan Hardin News Editor

Gov. Bev Perdue signed a state budget into law Wednesday that N.C. State officials say will likely lead to a tuition increase next year. The budget includes a provision to distribute $70 million in cuts to campuses in throughout the UNC system. It’s a far cry from the $175 million cut recommended by the state House earlier in the process.

Although the budget does increase the total funding allocated to the UNC system overall by more than $10 million, the cuts come from a mandate restricting potential cuts to the administrative levels of the university system’s campuses. Many University officials see the budget as a victory for the university system. Charles Leffler, vice chancel-

lor for finance and business, said the ability to increase tuition will help the University deal with the reduction. “The fact that we did get some authority for tuition increase and all those flexible measures will help us deal with that budget reduction,” Leffler said. However, Leffler said constant cuts are beginning to take their toll and he

still expects this reduction to impact everybody. “We’re going to work as we have been to minimize impacts on our employees,” said Leffler. “There will be some impact on everybody, because two years in a row legislation has al-

Q&A with new AD: Debbie Yow comes home DEBBIE YOW IS EXCITED TO START AT N.C. STATE JULY 15.

O

n the last day of Lee Fowler’s tenure as the Uni-

versity’s athletics director, Debbie Yow, the new athletics director, was returning to College Park to finish her reign at the University of Maryland before returning to her North Carolina roots at N.C. State. Yow has been the athletics director for the Maryland Terrapins for 16 years. During that time, the debt of the athletic department has decreased $45 million, and University of Maryland has won 20 national championships. In an interview with Technician, Yow discussed her future with the Wolfpack, her love of sports, and the Yow legacy at N.C. State.

Technician: Can you tell me some of your plans for what you’re going to do at N.C. State? Yow: I’ve already met with 15 individuals while I was on campus Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They all gave me a lot of good information about what is expected and what is needed. I met with some of the coaches as well. When I come back permanently on July 15, I will finish meeting with the coaches and everyone else I need to meet with. For now, this is a time of listening and learning for me.

me. Maybe at that point, but that will be in the future, so right now I have no plans on bringing new sports programs to N.C. State. Technician: Under your directorship at Maryland, numerous national championships were won. In your eyes, how soon will N.C. State be able to contend for a national championship in one of the three major sports

(women’s/men’s basketball, football, baseball/softball)? Yow: Actually, no one should ever try to predict when a team will be a contender for a national championship. It is a process, not an event. To begin with, you have to change the culture. To do that, everyone has to buy into the concept that it’s actually a possibility. It really depends on what the coaches need and making sure they have everything they need

Technician: Do you anticipate making any major changes to the Department of Athletics? Yow: I don’t anticipate any changes right now. This is a time where I need to listen and to learn about N.C. State and the athletics. Technician: You mentioned in another interview about sharing values with Randy Woodson, can you elaborate as to what those values are? Yow: Chancellor Woodson is a winner and he has a big vision for what N.C. State can do. I feel very challenged by his vision and his goals. He has a great respect for what athletics can bring to the school. He has a sense of pride in N.C. State and sense of teamwork I was very comfortable with.

to be a contender. To be candid with you, after winning 20 national championships at Maryland, it involves a little bit of luck in terms of everything falling into place at the right times. I think it’s a real possibility for N.C. State to be a contender soon. We’re going to start the process on July 15 when I come to State permanently. Technician: What was your number one reason for accepting the job at NCSU? Yow: I didn’t have just one reason. I had multiple reasons. I am a firm believer in the idea that there are seasons in a person’s life. I think it’s time for me to start a new season, meaning it’s time for me to come home. It had to be North Carolina, my home state, and it had to be N.C. State. Also, the sense of family involvement from N.C. State means a lot to me. It started with Susan being the first All-American in basketball and then Kay coaching there. Also the fact that Randy Woodson and I share so many values and ideas had a big impact on me accepting the job.

Over the summer, the tennis courts south of Carmichael gym are undergoing renovation. The neighboring basketball courts and parking lot are still open. Although the site has many access walkways, the construction area is off limits to students and faculty.

Nathan Hardin News Editor

Tennis players enticed by Wimbledon or the summer’s warm weather may have a problem over the next few months finding a spot on campus to hone their skills. Crew are reconstructing all 12 of the Carmichael Gym courts and Campus Rec officials are directing those looking to play toward the courts at Pullen Park.

According to Matt Miller, director of the Carmichael Gym, crews are reconstructing the courts of recent drainage issues which have developed, leading to frequent cracking throughout the courts. “The existing courts had been resurfaced over and over and drainage issues have developed over the years,” said Miller. “To get the effect that we wanted, which is smooth courts that drained well, we had to do this properly.” Miller said the number of courts won’t change and they should be ready for play in August. “The courts are being completely rebuilt and the plan is for them to be

done by the beginning of August,” Miller said. “Twelve were there, and 12 are going back.” Miller also said the new courts will provide added features not available on the old courts. “We’ll add some outside amenities, like benches, shade structures and an outdoor teaching space for lectures and instruction,” Miller said. “The hitting walls will also be greatly improved.” Miller said Carmichael Gym employees have been directing those wishing to play toward Pullen Park or other areas around Raleigh. “Pullen Park is the closest to campus,” Miller said. “The town of Cary

Technician: What is your fondest sports memory? Yow: I’m not sure I can point out one. I have so many fond memories, both as coach and administrator. I really enjoyed the years where both my sisters and I were coaching. I remember one year where Kay’s team played Tennessee one Saturday, Susan’s team played them the next Saturday and then my team played them the following Saturday. That time was a lot of fun for us as a family. We were constantly on the phone with each other talking about the team. In all honesty, I’m glad my team was third. The outcomes of the three games were: State lost, Susan’s team, East Tennessee, lost, and my Kentucky team won. My sister’s constantly teased me that my team won only because of scouting reports they gave me.

reason Debbie Yow was hired is because she has been very successful as an athletics director.” said Woodson. “In the 16 years she has been at Maryland, those teams have won 20 championships. I don’t think N.C. State has been that competitive during that time. She was hired because she has been very successful in the past and I feel confident she will be successful here.” Woodson denied the rumors that Yow was not recommended by the University’s search committee, which was hired to recommend the new athletics director. “It wasn’t a search committee, it was a nomination committee,” said Woodson. “On top of that, she hadn’t applied by the time the nomination committee made their recommendations, but her name was on the list of people [the nomination committee] were interested in. After the nomination committee made their recommendations, Debbie Yow applied for the position.” Woodson said he doesn’t

lowed no salary increases for the University.” One option for reducing strain on the University would be a tuition increase. Leffler said he fully expects there to be an increase of some degree to maintain the level of teaching. “There certainly will have to be a tuition increase to protect the quality of the teaching,” Leffler said. Chancellor Randy Woodson said the University will foot almost $14 million of the $70 million budget reduction. “If I look at the numbers, allocated evenly, it will be about $13.8 million,” Woodson said. Woodson said that tuition hikes were proposed by the legislation but must be approved before being open to implementation by the University. “That’s what the legislation has proposed,” Woodson said. “But that’s subject to the approval of the president [Erskine Bowles] of the UNC system. Woodson acknowledged that a tuition increase is possible because of the cuts, and also said many University programs are already struggling.

{Our view}

The Facts:

Gov. Bev Perdue signed the state budget into law Wednesday. One provision cuts $13.8 million from N.C. State’s part of the UNC System budget. Administration officials have indicated budget cuts may result in tuition increases.

Our Opinion:

Students come first. We are willing to accept a tuition increase, but the University must make meaningful changes to administrative positions in return. Crucial student programs should not be cut before the administrative hierarchy has been reevaluated.

O

Students come first

n Wednesday, the state budget was signed and consisted of a $70 million cut to the UNC system. $13.8 million is expected to come from N.C. State. A “management flow reduction” adjustment was mandated, which allowed for flexibility to cut within management but not from faculty. To avoid making these management cuts, a potential tuition increase may be in the works. Obviously, we as students are going to react negatively to an increase in tuition. However, if the University meets us halfway we are more likely to understand the increase. The budget cut affects the administration and us, so both should bear the burden for it. First, if students have to pay

more tuition, the administration needs to look at what it can do to minimize the effect for us; because, the University’s goal should always be to put the students first. A reevaluation of the management hierarchy to find the most effective positions and eliminate any unnecessary ones is in order. Look at every office with an administrative branch at the University. The hierarchy consists of multiple executive assistants, administrative assistants, and more that can be decreased by half, if not more. In almost every department, there are a handful of positions that can be eliminated.

The University is made up of students, so our needs should be first. Therefore, any important student program should be the last to go. Making the college experience any more burdensome on us should be a last resort. The University’s job is to accommodate the students, so its last priority should be catering to administrators because of the budget deficit that the University is facing. We shouldn’t have to graduate later because of decreased faculty or class sections. Instead of cutting back on beneficial programs like study abroad, leadership, service learning, and research oppor-

tunities, the University should explore options that do not take away from student growth and progress. These opportunities are exclusively available to college students, and to take that away from us is detrimental to our academic development. That is something we shouldn’t have to sacrifice, especially when there are other options that don’t take away precious opportunities. The University needs to acknowledge that the students deserve to come first and should have to suffer loss of resources or increased tuition as an absolute last resort.

Send Avani your day-toI have spent 14 years in the local Raleigh construction and engineering day questions, comments, industry and am currently unemployed and seeking work. I would like concerns, issues and whatever to get my resume seen by local, Raleigh-area NCSU graduates who else you’d like to have may be hiring. Having had previous bosses as well as coworkers who answered in a calculating and thoughtful manner to were fellow alumni, I can tell you it does pay to network with the local,, letters@technicianonline. Raleigh-area alumni. com. Mark the subject line However, posting your resume these days isn’t easy and apparently “Ask Avani.” is not free. The Career Planning and Placement Center on campus, no longer puts resumes on file unless you are a recent graduate. At Alumni Career Services, you must join the Alumni Association for a fee to post your resume. I realize the membership fees go to help pay for the new alumni center, but I honestly do not have the money at this time. Although, when I was employed last time, the University contacted me, I did purchase the deluxe College of Management Directory Book and CD set, titled Real Experience; however, I neglected to purchase the alumni membership they offered me at the same time for an additional price. Do you think it would it would be in poor taste or embarrassing to the school to contact the Alumni Association again to see if they would give deferred billing to the unemployed, with no income, so I could post my resume? Can you tell me what the younger generation would do in this situation? I am limited to my Internet search time, having to use the JobLink computers at the N.C. Employment Security Commission facility and the local library. Please tell me if you know of any alternative ways to post a resume with alumni in the Raleigh area. Sincerely, The “Real Experienced” Alumni

I

sympathize with your situation, as it’s one a lot of people a re f i nd i ng themselves in today. Being Avani Patel unemployed is Staff Columnist a difficult reality of living in today’s day and age. I recently watched a video called Lemonade, a short film about the optimistic side of unemployment, and from that I feel that of the best advice now is to be optimistic. I know it’s difficult, but it’s the one thing about the situation you have absolute and total control over. With that said, there are a number of online sites, such as Monster and

CareerBuilder, that allow you to post your resume online for free and offer a variety of other search options to find positions in your field and beyond. Yes, alumni networks are a huge asset, but there are other options. Still, if you would like to rely on Alumni Career Services, it never hurts to go and speak to them. If they are able to accommodate your situation, they will. Something I’ve done in the past when looking for a job is sending out your resume via e-mail to any company that is interesting to you. Employers love enthusiasm from their employees, and if you reach out to them, they are more likely to react positively. Even if a job listing has not been posted, the initiative goes a long way, and

Cagle has taken three agricultural law classes with Dr. Campbell, and therefore knows who won in the actual court case. “Anytime you get to work on a project with Dr. Campbell, you learn a lot and you

meet a lot of people. Campbell is Campbell — he’s a lot of fun,” Cagle said. “After sitting through his classes three times, it’s kind of ingrained in our head who actually won the case.” Campbell said he was lucky enough to land an actual courtroom for the movie set because of Chief Judge Robert Rader, who said the courtroom would be free during the annual judge’s conference.

Judge Dexter Williams, who Campbell said is the Chief Magistrate and has been in charge of the Small Claims Court in Wake County for 26 years, joined the cast and crew for lunch. The director and producer, Larry Evans of the DELTA Department of Distance Education, operated the sound, camera and lighting while giving direction to the actors. The filming lasted all day,

‘Sleazy Spouse’ filmed as education tool A Distance Education Business Law class starred in a mock court case in an actual Wake County courtroom.

Attorney Denton, played by Andrew Cagle, presents witness Skipper Dyson, played by Tate Simmons, with the marriage certificate validating the marriage with his wife, who died in a car accident on the way to a Mr. Muscle contest in Myrtle Beach, just four and a half hours after their marriage. Cagle and Simmons are both seniors in agricultural business management. The mock trial was put on by Dr. Ron Campbell’s Distance Education class the day after their final exam, and explored the legal ramifications of unexpected death of when a spouse and business partner dies without any legal plan or will for the future of the business. The “sleazy spouse” was uneducated, with no aspirations for the business other than living off it, which would have deteriorated the finances and not been in the best interest of the business, “The Island.”

Andrew Cagle, a senior in agricultural business management, portrayed the role of Lawyer Denton, who worked on the side of the living business partner. Cagle said he came to the courthouse straight from class and was the last one to arrive on set. “I didn’t know which lawyer I was until I came in and [Campbell asked] which one I was,” Cagle said. Laura Johnson, a junior in extension education, played the presiding Judge Marshall — and even got to wear a black robe and color part of her hair with gray makeup. “I didn’t have a whole lot of options about my role, but it’s fun, a new experience,” Johnson said. “This is the first I’ve heard about [the case].” Dustin Reaves, a junior in agricultural and environmental technology, acted as the jury foreperson, or the person who reads the verdict, in the film. “We came once to the court house before and viewed Small Claims Civil Court’s cases and then I came back for [the film]. I thought it was

interesting, to see how things work out,” Reaves said of the Distance Education class he took with Dr. Campbell this summer. As for the mock case, Reaves said he found it funny.

“It’s got a little bit of comedy to it. I don’t really think it would stand up that well in a regular court of law, but as far as everything goes, it’ll be good for students to watch and get an idea of how a real

court case is handled,” Reaves said. “I actually don’t know the verdict, but I’m interested to find out.”

another Yow would be calling the shots at State, and especially not so soon. I should have been pleased. But instead, I was puzzled. This is hardly the revolutionary hire I expected from Chancellor Randy Woodson and Co. Lee Fowler’s firing seemed like a clear sign that Woodson wanted out with the old and in with the new, to breathe some life into an athletic program muddled in mediocrity. But instead of fireworks, we got a discouragingly predictable deal that stinks a bit of nepotism. There’s no denying that Yow

did a lot for the Maryland program she inherited. She saw almost two dozen national championships during her tenure and her penny saving will be greatly valued by a University with a ballooning athletic budget. Of course, with the hypervigilant eyes of the ACC – and even more terrifying, the Wolfpack message boards – on her in the few days after her hire, the dirty laundry started circulating. One major area for concern involved her relationships with the coaches of Maryland’s two biggest revenue sports, football coach Ralph Friedgen and men’s basketball coach Gary Williams, both of whom she was far from warm and cuddly with. Yow report-

edly tried unsuccessfully to buy out each of their contracts at least once over the last five years. Even though his public image took a tumble during his later years, at least Fowler was able to maintain good, respectful working relationships with his coaches, or at least avoid squabbling with them in the public eye. Lighting a fire under a struggling team is something Yow has never had a problem doing, but there’s something to be said for stepping back and letting the ones in charge be in charge. It’s great to hear that Yow intends to directly reach out to State’s fan base through social media, but it’s one thing to set up a comment box in the corner of the office and quite

another to check it with regularity and implement the suggestions. I think we’re all curious to see whether this one is a carrot to get Wolfpack Nation on board or something she’ll actually use during her time with State. I’m not saying it won’t work out. She might blow it out of the water in spite of the groanworthy way in which she was hired. But put this one down as another one of State’s botched personnel searches – same comedy, different actors. Best of luck, Yow. With fans as desperate as these, you’re going to need it.

Classifieds

Initially, it seemed like the N.C. State community lost it. Many State fans were ripping their hair out and it seemed like every report about those from the Maryland University side- that is, those unofficially associated with Maryland-were celebrating because Yow was gone. And all a lot of fans speculated the hire was a favor to the late Kay Yow and her family and that it would add pressure for women’s basketball coach Kellie Harper. The hire also caught f lak because of reports of Yow’s public spat with Maryland’s Hall of Fame basketball coach Gary Williams These seem to be weak excuses for those Pack fans looking to complain about the move. But those giving such excuses are turning a blind eye to Yow’s track record. Both those complaints are completely made up and the public argument with Williams shows how Yow, no matter who you are, is not afraid to go after someone she believes is not performing as well as he or she should be. But then I began to look at Dr. Yow’s career and what she has done with Maryland since arriving there in 1994, and my opinion began to quickly change. In 16 years with the Terrapins, Yow won 20 national titles, including both a men’s and women’s basketball championship. Also, even more impressive is that Yow was able to decrease a massive $51 million deficit to just $5.5 million, all while continuing to balance the budget every year and constantly upgrade the

Maryland facilities. But it wasn’t Yow’s resume that made me a true, 100-percent believer that she was the right person for the job. It was her attitude, and she has already brought that attitude to Raleigh since being named the AD just a few days ago. “We will expect a national Top 25 program, moving toward Top 10 status and competing for national championships,” Yow said in her opening press conference. She has thus made it blatantly obvious that the below-average, mediocre style of athletics that has seemed to be the usual in Wolfpack land is not going to be acceptable anymore. Yow is going to demand greatness from the coaches and players and will not tolerate anything less. It is not going to happen overnight, but at least Yow is showing that she expects the Pack to compete sooner rather than later. Also, Yow seems to understand one aspect former Athletic Director Lee Fowler didn’t-winning over the fans and alumni and listening to what they have to say. She has said she is planning on making herself very accessible and setting up an e-mail account available for fans and alumni discuss their likes and dislikes pertaining to Wolfpack sporting events. This will open up a valuable channel of communication regarding the ticketing systems, parking and all other related topics. Overall, Chancellor Randy Woodson made the correct choice in hiring Yow, not even taking in to account the obvious connection with her sister. Yow’s proven track record, along with her determination to bring State athletics back to national prominence, should prove to be an excellent combination for N.C. State and put Pack athletics in very qualified hands.

Presnell was also one of just three Wolfpack athletes awarded an ACC Postgraduate Scholarship in March. In addition to her accolade-worthy performance in the classroom, Presnell finished her career as one of the most prolific hitters in the history of Wolfpack softball, as she is fifth in school history with 99 RBI and 76 runs scored, and ranks sixth with 25 career home runs.

Commentary

Yes to Yow When the rumors started f lying the night before the University officially announced Debbie Yow was taking over as Athletics Director, I didn’t really like the move for the school. Actually, I hated the move. I believed the hiring was strictly because of her older sister Kay Yow and that other candidates such as Bobby Purcell, the executive director of the Wolfpack Club, were better candidates. But that Taylor was before I really looked Barbour in depth into Dr. Yow’s career and thought about Debuty Spots Editor the move as a whole. And I wasn’t alone.

Less than impressed Like my colleague, I was disappointed when first I heard Debbie Yow was selected as the new Athletic Director. But I’m still waiting for the joyous feeling of approving the decision to set in. I admired and greatly respected Yow’s late sister Kay, who spent the better part of her career serving a school she clearly loved with class and determination. In the weeks after death, I remember Kate Shefte her mourners alluding to her Senior Staff family’s ACC roots, which Writer included her sister’s position at Maryland. But I never would have imagined that

Lowe doesn’t expect prized recruits to be ‘saviors’ Men’s basketball coach insists he’s keeping expectations reasonable at summer press conference. Kate Shefte Senior Staff Writer

Caught in the middle of a flurry of activity during the last several weeks, which included a high-profile signing and the hiring of a new Athletic Director, men’s basketball coach Sidney Lowe was the picture of calm Tuesday morning as he addressed the media for his annual summer press conference. Fans are just starting to get worked up for the season’s start, which the coach said is the “way it’s supposed to be.” However, Lowe said he’s not putting any undue pressure on his trio of five star recruits in point guard Ryan Harrow, shooting guard Lorenzo Brown and power forward CJ Leslie. “I know these guys,” Lowe said. “I’ve watched them for years. I know how they are and how competitive they are. I’m going to give them all they can handle, but I don’t want them to think that they’re coming in as saviors or anything. I just want them to come in and play like they can.” The pressure of beating conference rivals, when coupled with the usual rigors of being a student, can be a lot for a college freshman to handle. Lowe pointed to his experience coaching one-and-done center JJ Hickson during the 2007-2008 season as a positive one, saying it will help him ease Harrow, Brown and Leslie into the fold. Despite this, he expects the freshman class to contribute early, if not right away. “You like to think they

said. “Nothing is easy, but hopefully it will open it up and maybe he’ll get a few more easy baskets. We’re going to move him around quite a bit, play him at the four spot.” A handful of Pack players, including Johnny Thomas, Josh Davis and Julius Mays, didn’t see a place for themselves on this revamped team and opted to transfer for the 2010-2011 season. But even after those departures, the only reason depth might be a problem, Lowe said, is in case of injury. “We’re two-deep at each position and I feel pretty comfortable because we have guys who can move around,” Lowe said. “We’re covered but certainly injuries always can change things.”
