Campus Police prepares for emergencies Wolf Alerts are one way the University communicates with students and faculty on campus. Pranay Deshpande Correspondent

Christian Olson, a graduate student in business administration and ex-Marine, thinks about campus safety differently. According to Olson, the only practical way to prevent a Virginia Tech-like situation is by operating similar to a prison. Olson said the avoiding a shooter-situation would require installing body scanners and enforcing strict campus rules. According to Olson, the only practical way to prevent another university massacre would be to offer courses in human psychology geared toward identifying suspicious characters. Captain Jon Barnwell of Campus Police said campus units are well-prepared to tackle any emergency situation on campus. According to Barnwell, preparation for Campus Police includes regular training for various situations, evaluating the effectiveness of a disaster recovery process and if the need arises, changing it to make it more responsive. Barnwell said the University relies on Wolf Alerts, which include mass text messaging, email broadcasting and home page messaging. Barnwell also said Campus Police could use television sets throughout campus to display emergency messages. According to Barnwell, use of technology has certainly reduced the challenges when it comes to mass communication. Barnwell said he feels that this connectivity has exposed people to the danger of sharing too much information, which may create unpleasant situations in future.


As one of the final steps in handling a reported car bomb and restoring safety, a suspicious vehicle in the Carter-Finley Lot was blown up June 24, 2009.

Barnwell said waiting for tactical units are not necessary at the University, because of increased training effectiveness. “Today the Campus Police is capable of neutralizing such a threat on their own,” Barnwell said. “There is no need of waiting for a tactical unit as was the case previously.” Barnwell also said the right kind of training has made emergency services capable of handling most campus situations effectively.

Barnwell said Campus Police and other emergency services are trying to promote emergency awareness at every possible event. “People need to be aware of their surroundings and report anything that is suspicious to the police. Sharing the responsibility is absolutely essential while working together on critical issues,” Barnwell said. Several students on campus said they were unaware of the emergency options available, but

feel safe on campus. Saurabh Ray, a graduate student in mechanical engineering, said he was aware of the emergency services, but was unable to identify the ways to reach these emergency services. Patrick McCachren, a graduate student in crop science, said he was aware of campus police and the blue emergency lights on campus.

Tucker and Owen Hall residents are now excluded from eating at Case Dining Hall, except for some students from Tucker and Owen who were allowed prior to the change. According to Jennifer Gilmore, University Dining communication and marketing manager, students living in Avent Ferry, Wood, Carroll, Bowen, Metcalf, Turlington, and Alexander Halls, using a University Dining meal plan, have the option to eat at Case Dining Hall for breakfast, brunch and JONATHAN STEPHENS/TECHNICIAN ARCHIVE PHOTO lunch.

The Centennial Campus Challenge will allow students to begin camping out Sunday as part of a week-long College of Engineering tradition. The Centennial Campus Challenge began in 2008, when seniors in chemical engineering decided to create the event on Centennial Campus to give the College of Engineering an identity and to spark social networking between students of different engineering departments, according to the Centennial Campus Challenge website. The first co-chairs of the event were Garrett Swindlehurst and Robert Bradley. The co-chairs for the 2010 event are Alex Manasa, senior in aerospace engineering, and Caitlin Winnike, senior in mechanical


engineering. According to Manasa, co-chair for the event, the challenge is divided into two parts. “There are two main parts to this event, the Engineering Village Challenge (EVC) and the Greatest Engineers Challenge (GEC),” Manasa said. According to Manasa, the two parts have different goals, but in both, teams can win prize money. “In the EVC, students form teams and camp out on the field next to BTEC alongside Oval Drive. These teams earn points when the team members swipe-in during the check points; one in the morning and one at night,” Manasa said. “Whichever team has the highest score by the end of the week wins $500. Second place is $100, third is $50.” Teams in the GEC do not have check-in points. Instead these teams build designated items. “In the GEC, student teams are given a specific amount of materials each night during the week and are told to

{Our view}

The Facts:

Campus Police Department provides escort and educational programs for students and groups to make them aware of campus safety.

Our Opinion: Students need to stay aware of their surroundings and be active participants in campus safety.


Awareness is key

s students, we stay out late and study in obscure parts of campus. D.H. Hill library is in the central part of campus, and walking back to any residence halls brings us through dark patches and places where we can’t see around corners. We might be listening to our music through our headphones or talking on the phone, but we also need to be aware of where we are. Captain Jon Barnwell, director of Campus Police, says this is a crucial part of staying safe on campus. One of the University’s top priorities is keeping students safe. There are many annual programs done and Campus Police is always available to answer any questions about safety. Among some of the pro-

grams are walks through campus try to identify dark spots on common student thoroughfares and an escort service for students who need late-night rides back to their homes or residence halls. However, students need to plan ahead when they think they might be alone and in need of this service, because Campus Police receives a lot of escort requests. Since awareness is the key to safety, students have the option of signing up for Wolf Alerts, which send out e-mails and texts if there is an emergency situation on campus. This helps keep students informed about conditions and has al-

ready played a big role at neighboring schools. Campus Police also has the ability to broadcast on televisions across campus, which provides another way to get important safety information out to people on campus in case of an emergency. There are also policies in place that students need to abide by to ensure their safety. On-campus residents should know that only people who live in their residence halls are allowed in the building, unless they are being escorted by residents. This is to make sure non-residents and people who the University cannot track do not have access to students. It is

annoying to some, but critical in maintaining the safety of all residents. Awareness and following University policy is crucial to making sure all students and faculty are safe. Reporting any suspicious behavior can prevent crime from occurring. But the success of all of our efforts relies on everyone’s cooperation in maintaining safe practices.


Anatomy of friendships


ristotle was one of the greatest thinkers of all time. One reason why he is so great is because his ideas were written over 1,500 years ago, but his thoughts are still relevant today. Aristotle believed that humans are naturally social animals. We Chad have an innate Rhoades need for comSenior Staff panionship. Columnist No doubt if you have been in college for more than a week you have already man numerous friends. The main question is how do we know what a true friend is, or what we should be looking for. According to Aristotle, there are three types of friendship. The f irst type of friendship is based off of ut i l it y. T he s e a re the friends that a person makes in their classes. These people become f r iend s i n order to help one another out. You could hopefully count on this person to give you their notes if I missed a day of class or needed someone to study with. Once the class is over, the friendship more or less dissolves. Not because that person is disliked, but because the common interest and need for utility is gone. The second type of friendship is based on pleasure. These friends are the ones that you can go out with and have a good time. The common interest that is shared is having fun. Once the fun goes away—so does the friendship. These first two types of friendships can be important, and can make your life easier and more fun. However, once the common interest that brings these people together is gone, the friendship slowly falls apart. The third type of friendship is what Aristotle refers to as a virtuous friendship. This friendship allows you to have

Sorry Glenn, God isn’t listening


n Saturday, Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally was held on the national mall in Washington DC. The rally, which consisted of speeches by Beck, Sarah Palin and other conservative Zakk leaders, White seemed less like a Senior Staff Columnist political rally than a spiritual one. The main theme of the day was that America has lost its way and the only way to be great again is for everyone to turn back to God. Beck in particular believes that America is broken and cannot be fixed by a political solution. To solve our problems, he advocates putting all of our faith in God to make things right again. At first this sounds innocuous but faith in God is not all it is cracked up to be. If we have problems in our country it is not up to God to solve them. The last time God supposedly intervened in nature was right after the events of the Gospel. The idea that God will watch over humanity at this point in time is hard to swallow after the Holocaust. If God was silent about the gas chambers, I doubt that

he would care enough to help us out with our puny economic and political problems. There is nothing intrinsically good about a ‘person of faith.’ As Beck and other conservatives constantly point out, the 9/11 attackers were people of faith. What ‘person of faith’ in this current context is ‘a good Christian.’ Christianity has its fare share of blood on its hands. While Christianity did play a big part in the demise of slavery and segregation, Christian theology was also used to prop up those institutions. If Beck really wanted us to be good people, he would focus on common decency and not allegiance to a Christian God. A person doesn’t have to believe in a god to be a good person. There are good people of every religion and of no religion. Obama made this point clearly in his inauguration speech when he stressed the diversity of American’s religious beliefs. According to a 2001 study by the City University of New York, the percentage of people who claim to be ‘non-religious’ grew from 8.2 percent of the population in 1990 to 14.1 percent in 2001. Since that time those numbers have grown. Instead of

becoming more Christian, America is becoming more irreligious. So Beck’s return to God is not only offensive to the irreligious and other ‘outsider’ religions, but it is also not politically wise. One can look to the Ground Zero mosque debate to see how ‘Christ-like’ conservative Christians really are. I am not a follower of Mr. Beck’s political theories but I do respect that he has systematic views regarding American History a nd t he current political situation. But for him to pretend to avoid politics and instead talk about God is itself a shrewd political move. Beck defining his movement—no matter what it is—as the one that represents people of faith is a much more ominous move than calling the president a racist or crying on TV.

the perks of the first two types, but also something that is much more. A virtuous friendship is one that has qualities of genuine trust and concern for the well being of the other person involved. A person who is involved in a genuine, virtuous friendship is more than willing to make sacrifices for the other person. Not only are they willing to make sacrifices for that person, but are happy to make sacrifices. They are willing to set aside part of themselves for the happiness of their friends. These friends are the ones that you can come to with any problem, and they can do the same. They know how you feel, and they know how you think. These friends know when to tell you are wrong, and know when to lie to you to make everything feel better. This type of friendship is rare, but important to the success of a person and a society. We are not just a society of isolated individuals. There is a n important network of friends that allows us to cooperate with each other and function smoothly. The virtuous friendship is something that we are all capable of having. We cannot have a virtuous friendship with anyone and everyone, so the virtuous friendships that we do have must be treasured. People will come in and out of your lives each and every day, but a virtuous friend will always be there for every problem, and every happy time. We should all seek these kinds of relationships whether it is on a romantic level or a best friend. It is important that we share important aspects of our lives with a few special people who will do the same for us.

From summer to fall: buy now, wear later layer outfits for cool weather “When it starts to get colder, throw a plain white, longsleeved T-shirt underneath [a jacket] and pair it with skinny jeans.”

Tights and other clothing accessories can extend your summer wardrobe into chic and fun fall outfits. Story By Staci Thornton | photos By Luis Zapata


t’s that time of year where all of the summer clothes are on sale but you are torn about buying them because you will only get to wear them for another month. Nicole Ralston, a graduate student in higher education, said, “frugal advice can help me stay within my college budget and still be fashionable.”

Well, buy away, because there are some easy rules to follow to ensure your summer wardrobe lasts well into fall. Summer dresses are perfect for any outdoor occasion. When it comes to wearing them in the fall, keep in mind one word— tights. Take a strapless dress and pair it with matching tights, closed-toed chunky heels and a cardigan or long open sweater, and you have a new cold weather outfit. To pull the look together, throw on a wide belt over the cardigan to make it look like it is part of the dress. For winter, grab a long coat and this outfit will last until April. You can also try a black or denim strapless dress worn over a white button-up work shirt. As long as the fit on both of them

sity of Texas, where Fox worked before becoming the chancellor of N.C. State. “The University of Texas also has a very prominent tower on their campus. They had a tradition of lighting their tower orange to commemorate special events. [Fox] liked that idea, and she decided to institute this at N.C. State,” Stafford said. While most students know a bit about why the tower is sometimes lit red, many believe it is lit only for athletic events. Alexander Thomas, a freshman in chemical engineering, said he thought the tower was lit for homecoming and other special events.

are right, it becomes a very classy outfit. Hate strapless and only wear sleeveless summer dresses? Follow the same rules with matching tights and chunky heels, but put a matching turtleneck underneath the dress. Accessorize with some long necklaces, and again, a wide belt. Always be sure to think about color. You can’t wear bright pink or green with black tights and think it is a fall outfit. Go for reds, yellows, browns or blacks for fall and winter. But if you are comfortable enough to wear bright yellow tights with a black dress, go for it! You can only wear tights in the fall and winter, so if they make them bright, then they are meant to be worn. If you love your peep toe shoes but are afraid to wear them out after dark because

your toes will freeze, again, use the best cold weather accessory —tights! The only downfall is that the tights shouldn’t match the shoes, because it will look like you are trying to be too matchy, which is a bad thing. Be bold and try purple or turquoise with black shoes. If you don’t like the idea of wearing tights all winter, try the shoes and bold-colored trouser socks with jeans and a black shirt. That way you are showing a pop of color that will still make a big impression. Another great trend right now is military or safari jackets. If you find one that is short-sleeved, don’t disregard it—it’s perfect for the summer and fall. Right now, take that jacket and pair it with bright shorts and wedge sandals. When it starts to get colder, throw a plain white, long-sleeved T-shirt underneath and pair it with skinny jeans. For a day walking around campus, try it with Converse shoes or cute flats. For a night out, try heels. With temperatures so high this summer, it has been a season for shorts. From shorts with patterns to jorts (jean shorts) to plain old khakis, shorts are everywhere.

“The tower was built in honor of, and in memorial for, the men from N.C. State who died in World War I.”

As long as they are a thicker fabric and not too bright, shorts can be worn year-round. Pair them with a long-sleeved sweater and flats for the day, and tights and heels for the night. If you are going for a super casual look, try a graphic or plain T-shirt with a longsleeved boyfriend cardigan. A longer cardigan can be worn even if the shorts are shorter than the cardigan—it gives the outfit a bit of mystery. You can also try wearing tights and a long-sleeved shirt with a mini skirt, but be sure they are color appropriate for fall. “I always wear tights in fall and winter because they can easily change a summer outfit into a cold weather appropriate outfit,” Ralston said. “I’m always interested in new ideas of how to wear them.” Even though you will have to put away your flip-flops and bathing suits soon, all is not lost! Before you put any item of clothing in that under-the-bed box for the season, stop and consider wearing tights or a jacket to spice up the outfit.

Natasha Vos, a senior in animal and poultry science, said she knew the meaning extended beyond sport victories. “[It’s lit] whenever our football or basketball team wins an ACC conference game, and also whenever we elect a new chancellor or a higher-up associated with N.C. State,” Vos said. Vos said she remembers going to the Bell Tower to celebrate a men’s basketball victory. “When N.C. State beat Duke in basketball last year, there was a really large gathering, a sort of impromptu celebration. People were driving by and honking,” Vos said. “A lot of people gathered on the lawn by the Bell Tower.”

Other occasions and achievements that are honored by lighting the Bell Tower include Spring and Winter Commencements, Founders Day, any football victory, any ACC or national championship won by any team sport and if a member of the N.C. State community receives a top-level academic honor, such as the Nobel Prize, Pulitzer or Fulbright. Additional events may be honored at the discretion of the chancellor.

As a symbol of campus, the Bell Tower is both a memorial and a place to celebrate University achievements. Allison Saito Correspondent

The Bell Tower is a place of celebration and remembrance. Built as a memorial, the Bell Tower is also a place where the community can celebrate its accomplishments. Tom Stafford, the vice chancellor of Student Affairs, explained the Bell Tower honors veterans with ties to the University. “The tower was built in honor of, and in memorial for, the men from N.C. State who died in World War I,” Stafford said. The names of 34 men are inscribed on a plaque inside the tower. 33 of these names are of alumni who perished in World War I, and the 34th name was of a man mistakenly reported as a casualty. Stafford said the mistake was transformed into a way of honoring all alumni. “They decided to correct the mistake by going in and changing the name. The name they changed it to is a fictitious name. This fictitious name has come to symbolize all N.C. State alumni,” Stafford said. Under Chancellor Marye Anne Fox, the Bell Tower’s role was expanded to become a place to recognize the accomplishments of students, faculty and alumni. In 1998, Fox announced the Bell Tower would be illuminated in red light on special occasions. This is similar to a tradition at the Univer-

to be honored. I felt proud of myself, and it was awesome to see the fruits of our labor with our wins out there.” In each of the matches, the Pack won all of its sets handily. The only team that scored more than 20 points in any of the sets played was Eastern Kentucky, who scored 22 in the first set and 20 in the third and final set of the match. “None of the games were

really that close,” Smith said. “So we really felt like we were able to play our game to the highest level.” State will return to action this weekend, as it takes part in the Indiana Tournament hosted by Indiana University. The Pack will begin play Friday against the Illinois State Redbirds in Bloomington, Indiana. The Wolfpack will also face off with Arkansas State and Indiana as part of the Indiana Tour-

nament. Salata, a native of Buffalo Grove, Ill., will have family coming out to watch her play in the tournament. “I personally am so excited for this weekend because my parents will get to see me play for the first time collegiately,” Salata said. “But on more of a team note, I’m excited to play some more challenging teams. Indiana should be a great team for us to see where we are.”


awarded a free kick from 35 yards out, Dugal pierced a line drive shot right over the Charlotte keeper’s head to give the Pack a 1-0 lead. “We practice this a lot the day before games,” Dugal said. “Blosser normally takes those right around the 18, but she made a judgement call so she called me out and said you can take it, it’s your range”  The defender out of Garner was the eighth different goal scorer the Wolfpack has had in the first four games. She was also one of just five starters who isn’t a freshman.   “It’s really nice to see a lot of freshmen getting up there on the points board,” Dugal said. “It’s really good to see a lot of diversity. It’s nice to have that one player you can always depend on, but it’s even better to have a bunch of people that you know even if you’re not 100% today we have other players that can do it, too”  The lead was short-lived, as the 49ers tied it just 1:07 after Dugal’s marker. Lacey McGowan scored her first of the year when she chipped in the game-tying goal from close range into the upper right hand corner of the net. Nearly 45

minutes later, Charlotte won it in extra time on a nearly identical scramble in front of the goal when Whitney Bryant sent her team’s bench into a frenzy. State’s second year coach Steve Springthorpe said losing to UNC-Charlotte for the second consecutive season was a disappointment. “It’s a credit to their defense,” Springthorpe said. “They have a good back line. Last year they limited our opportunities and it’s pretty much the same team that they had last year. They did a good job against our attacking players, and we needed to generate more opportunities.”  “That’s what it came down to today,” Springthorpe said. “They finished what they needed to to win and we did not. Credit goes to Charlotte. They did what they needed to do to stick the ball in the back of the net and we did not.” The former Fresno State head man said he will try to keep an emphasis on finishing, as his team has five days to prepare for Pittsburgh. The start time is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday night.

O’Brien: Every game is a championship game Irving selected to Rotary Lombardi watch list Redshirt senior linebacker Nate Irving has been selected to the watch list for the Rotary Lombardi award. Candidates for the award are limited to defensive linemen and linebackers who either earned All-American honors, earned first team all-conference honors or were nominated and approved by the nomination committee. Irving was a 2008 honorable mention All-ACC performer even though he missed four games because of lingering injuries. After missing the entire 2009 season due to injuries suffered in a near-fatal car accident, Irving is finally healthy and primed for a stellar senior season. During the offseason, Irving was named team captain along with quarterback Russell Wilson and wide receiver Jarvis Williams. Source: N.C. State Athletics

Loyola (MD) remaining on the season-opening six game home stand. The first 45 minutes from Dail Soccer Stadium were marked by rare scoring opportunities and spectacular goaltending, as all seven of the game’s shots were countered with saves.

Kristina Argiroff, a forward from Kill Devil Hills, was heavily involved early on as she attempted to convert her third goal of
