‘Dialogue on Diversity’ will address immigration issues Both sides of the “illegal immigration debate” will be discussed on Thursday in the hopes of forming constructive and comprehensive solutions. Brooke Wallig Staff Writer

In light of the ongoing controversy regarding illegal immigration in the United States, several N.C. State offices and organizations are working together to host a “Dialogue on Diversity.” The main speakers presenting the opposite sides of the issue at the event are Dr. Marisol McGee, an adjunct lecturer on social work, and John Hood, president of the John Locke Foundation, an organization that focuses on policy issues. Andrew Behnke, assistant professor and human development specialist, will moderate the discussion. Although the event has been advertised in flyers as a debate, it is designed to be more of an intellectual discussion, according to Behnke. “This is not a debate. We are not here to lecture one another, or convince each other of a particular viewpoint,” Behnke said. “Instead, I hope we can create a collaborative and open space for discussion about these topics for both sides of the aisle to find some common ground. We really want it to be a constructive opportunity.” An open space is exactly what students like Juana Hernandez say they are hoping will come from this discussion. Hernandez, a junior in criminology, said she worked with Behnke on part of the organization of this forum. Hernandez said she hopes people will see this event as an opportunity to learn the truth about immigration in the United States, as it is a topic she

believes is often misrepresented. “As a previously undocumented student, I think it is very important for people to gain knowledge about what is going on instead of simply thinking what they want to think,” Hernandez said. “Honestly, I know there are pros and cons to immigration, but there are so many families who aren’t hurting anyone. They are just like everyone else. They just want to make a better future for their families.” Hernandez said she hopes students who attend will learn to be more openminded about immigration and less inclined to discriminate based on heritage. Less discrimination is exactly what cousins Magdalena Gaspar, a freshman in math education, and Charlie Miguel, a freshman in aerospace engineering and philosophy major say they would like to see. Miguel and Gaspar said their family left a small village in Guatemala over 25 years ago, and both are U.S. citizens. They said while they aren’t openly discriminated against, the issue is there. “Most of the people I hang out with are pretty smart and don’t discriminate on age, race, or gender. We are all equal. I’m lucky because I have seen discrimination based on where we are from,” said Miguel. Gaspar said although her family has gone through the naturalization process and she is a U.S. native, people are often quick to assume she is an illegal immigrant because she is Hispanic. “There are people who assume just because you are Hispanic or from somewhere else, that you’re illegal,” said Gaspar. “I just think the community exaggerates immigration as a problem. Yeah they take many of the jobs, but imagine if we didn’t have immigrants. Who would be doing the jobs then? Many people from other countries work in our library, dining

halls, janitorial staff and so on.” Miguel said illegal immigration is a serious problem because the United States cannot handle such an annual influx in population. “In my opinion it is a problem. It’s overpopulating this country and we can’t support that many people,” said Miguel. “When people immigrate here illegally they often fall into poverty. More and more people these days are dying from poverty-related issues, and we don’t need any more people contributing to that number.” While they hold differing views on the immigration issue, both said they think people need to learn the facts before they form an opinion, something Behnke said is a major goal of the forum. “Serving Latino family’s is my passion, my life’s work. People have a tendency to only look ‘their’ issues and disregard others,” said Behnke. “But we have some quality speakers, so I hope we have a high attendance this year.”

General Raymond Odierno commencement speaker Odierno was the Commanding General for the U.S. Armed Forces for two years and has his Master’s degree from N.C. State. Chelsey Francis Deputy News Editor

Raymond Odierno will be the guest speaker at December’s commencement.

April 2003 to March 2004. According to Chancellor Randy Woodson, the administration at the University is excited to have chosen and solidified that Odierno is speaking at the December commencement ceremony. “General Odierno is an outstanding leader,” Woodson said. “We’re really excited to be able to have him speak at the ceremony.” General Odierno was chosen as the commencement speaker for two reasons, according to Thomas Stafford, vice chancellor of student affairs. “We chose him, number one, because he is a N.C. State alum, and number two, because he has reached a very high level or responsibility in the U.S. Military,” Stafford said. “Not many people achieve the level of a 4-star commanding general. In the military, that is a very prestigious accomplishment.” “There are not many universities

Four stars for the fall commencement speaker THE FACTS:

General Raymond Odienro will be the 2010 fall commencement speaker. Odienro is an N.C. State alumnus and recently was the commanding general of the U.S. troops in Iraq.


University administrators did a great job choosing the commencement speaker this semester. Past semesters have paled in comparison with local universities, but this semester definitely stacks up with them.


University administrators chose four-star General Raymond Odierno as the fall 2010 commencement speaker, and not many universities can boast the same. Odierno is an N.C. State alumnus with a master’s degree in nuclear engineering. He is also graduate of the Naval War College and the Army War College. He served in Desert Storm, but most recently as the top military commander of U.S. troops in Iraq. The University has certainly chosen an honorable speaker that, except for a few notable, overshadows previous speakers in the past few years. Fall 2007’s commencement speaker Billy Ray Hall was nice, but was hardly relevant to ma-

jority of the graduating class. Although Hall was the founding president of the N.C. Rural Economic Development Center, only a small fraction of the graduating class will ever see the effects of his work or his words. However, Hall was certainly a more relevant choice than Erskine Bowles, who was obviously a cop out on the spring 2008 graduating class. The University was desperate and it showed. General Odierno obviously took some thought and will definitely provoke thought. The novelist John Grisham spoke at UNC-Ch’s com-

mencement in the Spring and although it is a private unversity, Oprah Winfrey spoke at the Duke commencement last year. Our speakers pale in comparison to these societal giants. Bill Cowher, Super Bowl-winning coach and alumnus, was a step in the right direction, but the University stumbled over Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, an expert on climate change. Charlie Rose was certainly a step back in the right direction, as far as commencement speakers have gone for N.C. State. These speakers had the national prominence of speakers at our local universities.

Good job to University administrators who helped choose Odireno as the fall commencement speaker. Odierno is certainly an honor to the graduating class of fall 2010. His success will hopefully reflect well on the lives of graduates and his words will touch their futures. His insight on moving on from college and having seen battle will help him give new perspective to graduates and families going to see the commencement ceremony.


What you need to know about coming out


ational Coming Out Day, obser ved on Oct. 11, is a way for members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community (GLBT) to symbolically celebrate living openly. Justine Hollingshead The day was founded by Dr. Director of the Center for GLBT Robert Eichberg and Jean Programs and O’Lea r y in Services 1988, and has been celebrated by members of the GLBT and ally community ever since. The GLBT Center and other departments and organizations provide programs and events to help create more awareness and ultimately foster a campus climate where students, faculty and staff who are members of the GLBT community feel safe being out. That is not always the case. We know from research nationally and here on campus that members of the GLBT community do not feel comfortable being out and often experience harassment and discrimination. Research has show n t hat individuals dealing with coming out issues are at a much higher risk of suicide and other self-destructive behaviors. N.C. State is not unlike many other college and universities across the country when it comes to dealing with issues related to the GLBT community. For many years, the discussion regarding sexual orientation and gender identity have been topics only discussed on the periphery of this intellectual environment we call a university. N.C. State has made positive efforts toward responding to the needs of the GLBT community, but we are still not at a place of equality. We have a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, which includes members of the GLBT community. The University’s non-discrimination policy includes sexual orientation and gender identity/ expression. We provide training, programs and events to increase awareness and hope-

fully offer support. However, these are just words on paper or activities that not everyone attends. We need to move in a direction, where in action beyond words, everyone truly feels safe and welcome at N.C. State. The message often times is you can be who you are, but stay in the closet so it does not bother the rest of us. It needs to become a priority on our campus to help create a place that is a safe, nonjudgmental environment for all people, including members of the GLBT community. As a place of higher learning, N.C. State needs to become more knowledgeable about the issues that face the GLBT community, trends, the climate and strategies for creating these safe places in our educational setting. The overarching goal is to strategize ways to develop our campus into a welcoming place for all people. This needs to be in practice and not just polic y. W h e n y ou look at the nu mb er of teen suicides just in t he past month, it highlights t he u rgent need to address why our youth feel taking their own life is the only answer to bullying, harassment and discrimination. With negative images in the media related to GLBT commu nit y, homophobic statements by law makers or derogatory comments like “that’s so gay”, it is hard to feel good about yourself or strong enough to come out and live your life openly. If you doubt the toll this takes, spend time talking with your peers and doing some research. N.C. State is an amazing institution and we need to take advantage of the strength of our community. The gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community needs the support of the many allies, your voice has to be clear for those who are not at the place of celebrating their coming out. Join us as we celebrate GLBT history month and National Coming Out Day. There are programs and events planned throughout the year

A simple list of virtues

enjamin Franklin is one of the most interesting and popular characters from when our country was being founded. He was a ver y accomplished and wellrounded m a n . He was a political figure, Chad writer, inRhoades ventor, scientist and Senior Staff Columnist philosopher. He helped draft the Declaration of Independence and wrote Poor Richard’s Almanack. He served as an ambassador to France, and served as a governor in Pennsylvania. Although his accomplishments cannot be limited to a column, there is one aspect of Benjamin Franklin’s life that I think is both interesting and beneficial to everyone in our community and throughout the nation. According to his autobiography, Benjamin Franklin worked on a list of 13 virtues throughout his life. He started this when he was 20, coincidently about the same age as a college student. The virtues were: temperance, or self-control, silence, or listening more than talking, order, resolution, or accomplish what you set out to do, frugality, industry, or be efficient, sincerity, or if you speak,

speak true, justice, moderation, cleanliness, or clean in the body and mind, tranquility, or do not be bothered by the small unimportant matters, chastity and humility. It would be impossible to work on all these virtues all of the time, so his solution was to take one virtue a week to focus on, and then let the others fall into place. I feel that this idea is something that we could all do, and it would be beneficial to everyone. This idea is powerful because it not only causes the person to look at their own actions through intense self-ref lection, but t he resu lt s of it will be beneficial to everyone because if done correctly it should improve everyone’s moral character. People will generally have different opinions about everything, but virtues like these tend to be universally accepted, especially in American society. What makes this idea so clever is that everyone can do it. Both engineers and English majors can participate in this idea, just like Christians and Atheists can. The virtues can even very among people — as long as they are not inherently negative. It is unclear whether or not Benjamin Franklin practiced what he preached all the time. He was human

just like the rest of us. I am sure that he was not able to stand by his specific virtue all the time, but that is not the point of the concept. The point is to consciously reflect on one’s actions and behaviors and improve on them. People today are quick to point fingers at others for their shortcomings, or even only because of their differences. However, people rarely are able to make the same evaluations of their own character and moral well being. If we can critically evaluate our on actions, then we can become better people. Not only will we become better as individuals, but as a community and a nation. If we tried Franklin’s idea we would most certainly fail some of the times because we are human and we do make mistakes. However, it is more important that we at least try to be critical of ourselves. If you want to see change in others, you must be able to evaluate yourself.

State basketball. The event will include formal drills, an intrasquad scrimmage, a dunk contest, and a shooting challenge, among other things. “The student body will get to see the team in a formal format with the scrimmages and the drills, but it will also give the fans an opportunity to come out and see a different side of the student athletes that students normally don’t get to see,” Alston said. Former ACC Player of the Year Julius Hodge will host the event alongside 99.9-FM The Fan’s Mark Thomas. For many Wolfpack faithful, this will be the first glimpse of a highlytouted recruiting class featuring freshmen C.J. Leslie, Ryan Harrow and Lorenzo Brown. “We have a really young, exciting and really hard working team that’s going to be out there fighting their tails out for Pack Nation,” Hodge said. “It’s pretty much a day where the guys can flex their muscles

and show the student body what they got. I think Coach Lowe is creating the type of atmosphere that Pack Nation has been wanting and craving for the past decade.” Alston said he hopes the event will increase student attendance and provide an enthusiastic audience for the unveiling of the basketball teams. “Reynolds now has video boards, and we are trying to put a lot of focus on getting the student population out to the game as well,” Alston said. “With it being on campus, it’s going to be a lot easier to get students out there on a Friday night.” Hodge, the self-proclaimed ‘best personality the ACC has ever seen,’ promises nothing less than a good time to fans who make the trip to Reynolds Coliseum. “Besides just being me and being funny, I think I’m going to try to get the crowd going with a little ‘when we hungry, we eat’ chant going or something like that,” Hodge said. “Come out and support us, Pack Nation. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Those unable to attend have two options for viewing, a free live stream on GoPack. com’s All-Access or on TimeWarner Cable’s Channel 18 in the following communities: Apex, Bunn, Cary, Four Oaks, Franklinton, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Louisburg, Morrisville,

QB, safety named ACC Players of the Week Redshirt junior quarterback Russell Wilson was named ACC Co-Player of the Week at offensive back and sophomore safety Brandan Bishop earned the same honor at defensive back. For Wilson, who completed 38 of 51 passes for 328 yards and 3 touchdowns, it was the fifth time in six games he has thrown for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns. The star quarterback is tied for third in the nation with 17 passing touchdowns and is second in the NCAA with, 1,802 passing yards. Bishop now has three interceptions and a forced fumble on the season. In addition to picking off three passes, Bishop had three tackles in the win over BC.

Women’s tennis takes three victories in New York The Pack’s Tana Ilova and Lenka Hojckova dropped Rutgers’ topseeded duo of Holzberg/Zhang, 9-7 to win the A doubles crown at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Women’s Collegiate Invitational. The victory by Ilova and Hojckova was one of three matches State took home over the weekend, as Ilova also took the C singles with a 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 win over Maxine Thomas of Brown. The third Wolfpack victory came in the form of a 6-4, 7-6 (6-4) by Joelle Kissell, who defeated Brown’s Misia Krasowski. The women’s tennis team’s next action will be Oct. 21, when it participates in the ITA Regional Indoors in Chapel Hill.

Roberts reunited with Raleigh Former Broughton star back in hometown following stint with Georgetown Tucker Frazier Deputy Sports Editor

Not very often do athletes have the opportunity to compete for the team they idolized growing up, much less after graduating from a university located hundreds of miles away from their hometown. For Raleigh native Sandy Roberts, his dream has quickly become reality. Following an illustrious cross country and track career at nearby Broughton High School, the six-time state champion chose to attend Georgetown University instead of N.C. State, the school he idolized growing up. A change of scenery and the opportunity to study international politics were the primary reasons why Roberts turned down his initial opportunity to run for the Wolfpack out of high school, and left Raleigh in favor of Georgetown. “Off the bat, I kind of

wanted to get out of Raleigh,” Roberts said. “I wanted to sort of move out of my comfort zone. Academically, I was interested in studying international politics so being in [Washington] D.C. was a perfect fit. Running-wise, I knew a couple of guys on Georgetown’s team and I knew the coach there was really good, so I thought with all of that combined it was the best fit for me coming out of high school.” Four years later, with a degree in international politics from Georgetown in hand, Roberts opted to use his last year of eligibility to join the 13th ranked Wolfpack cross country program and reunite with coach Rollie Geiger, who heavily recruited Roberts during his career at Broughton. When Roberts called Geiger last May and told him about his interest in running for State, the 29-year coaching veteran welcomed him with open arms. “After he got his release, he said he wanted to run for the Wolfpack and he wanted to go to graduate school at N.C. State,” Geiger said. “Being a graduate student was equally as important as being an athlete here. I think Sandy always had in the back of his mind that he wanted to be a part of this

program. He is reaching his objectives on both the academic side and the athletic side so it was a good fit.” Roberts has already made his presence felt, winning the season-opening race at the 5K Wolfpack Invite with a time of 15:11.4, propelling the Pack to a first place finish. The fifthyear senior followed up his first race in a Wolfpack uniform with a 34th-place finish at the 8K Roy Griak Invitational in a time of 25:10.5. The first two races of the season helped assure Roberts he was back to his old form. “Winning that first race gave
