HOUSING DRAW HOPES AND FEARS Amanda Palczynski Editorial Staff

Much of Carroll’s available housing was allotted to make way for the incoming freshman class. The suite-style living spaces, such as Pioneer Hall, the apartments, the Landing, and the Ramada Inn were made available particularly to the rising juniors. According to junior and R.A. Heroina Kasterati, the traditional halls like North and South Bergstrom and Steele/ Swarthout will be more oriented for freshmen and sophomores. Freshmen will receive housing automatically, so the majority of these buildings are apportioned off for the incoming class of 2014. A number of current sophomores were rather unhappy with drawing process. Sophomore Dan Prindinville said he unfortunately expects the price of living to steepen by next year and that the process could have been sped up. “It was irritatingly slow, especially since we got here a half hour earlier than necessary,” said Sophomore Autumn Ensley, whose drawing number was just beyond 30. Lauren Furst’s drawing number was 31 and she ended up receiving a single in Kilgour, as opposed to her sought-after room in the Bergs. Because not all of her credits from her previous college transferred, Furst was dissatisfied with her setup, having spent more years in school than most, but being treated like a sophomore. Previously unavailable housing options this year included the Ramada Inn on Moreland Blvd., which cost $3923 for the academic year and the Landing, which would cost $5,580. Each unit in Landing is able to house two to three people. Amenities include a full kitchen, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer units and a pool. The Landing is located less than a mile away from campus. The Ramada Inn offers wireless internet and cable, transportation to campus, weekly cleanings by the staff, flat screen TVs, a swimming pool, whirlpool and a sauna. Dr. Theresa Barry, the Dean of Students, said that a shuttle would be available to transport students to and from the hotel based on the students’ need, regarding sports for ex-

ample. According to a current sophomore who attended the draw, however, no students decided to live at the Ramada. The Ramada Inn is close to the new Graduate Center. Barry named Physical Therapy students as the “ideal group” for occupying the Ramada Inn because of the location of the Grad Center. Had there been any rising juniors denied housing, Barry noted that a housing fair would take place at a later date in April to inform students what their off-campus housing options are. Residence Life must first get in touch with property managers and real estate agents to make arrangements for such an affair. The Admissions Office is expecting around 700 freshmen next fall. Jacob Eisch, Area Director for the Bergs, said that more singles were partitioned off for sophomores next semester. “It’s been a wacky year; it’s weird because these two classes [2013 and 2014] are bigger than anticipated.”

Staff Writer Two former Carroll students had a disagreement, leading to a fight on Mar. 14 which caused one to be injured and one in custody. One of the former Carroll students was involved in an attack around 4:30 a.m. When the Public Safety officers were on patrol, they received a call from the police which was about a student who was attacked near campus. “We patrolled around the campus, not just the university dorms but also the neighborhood,” said Mike Zens, Director & Chief of the Public Safety & Campus Safety. Somebody reported that the injured party may have been a Carroll student, so the Public Safety office monitored and stayed updated on the incident. Public Safety discovered that the suspect was

a former student. He was apprehended and is currently in police custody. The injured student was taken to the hospital for observation and was eventually released. Zens visited the victim to make sure that he was alright. “There is no threat to our campus,” said Zens. “Public Safety wants to make sure Carroll students feel safe and don’t worry about it.” Zens also mentioned that the suspect is in custody and he is not a danger to anyone. While the case is being investigated by the Waukesha Police Department, Public Safety is increasing the amount of patrols on campus. They are also making the patrols farther and more frequent. Meanwhile, the number of the on-duty Public Safety officers also increased. There are 24hour patrols by officers in vehicles, on foot and by bicycles in order to ensure safety.

Waukesha changes and Campus Safety offers solutions for students Heather Markovich

Editorial Staff With the apparent increase in car break-ins around the city of Waukesha, Carroll University’s Public Safety continued to monitor parking lots around campus; meanwhile, a proposed budget change in the Master Plan could result in more lighting and cameras in lots and the surrounding perimeter. While Carroll has not experienced a significant increase, Director of Public Safety Mike Zens noted that with the warming of the weather, officials have seen what appears to be an escalation of break-ins to cars in the city of Waukesha. Waukesha Police Department officials were not available for comment at the time. This rash of entries in Waukesha has spanned at all times from day to night. “Breaking into vehicles is… a crime of opportunity,” Associate Director of Public Safety John Harbeck said. “If we look historically at Carroll, we’ve had break-ins at high noon from pretty much every lot, whether it be a residence hall lot or a staff lot. Depending on what is targeted and what the opportunity is, it is hard to pin down a specific time of occurrence.” Historically the lots that aren’t behind residence halls have had more issues. Typically Carroll lots are patrolled on a 24-hour basis, with one to two officers on patrol in addition to safe-walk students. Public Safety encourages students, faculty and staff to

report anything that does not look right in lots, specifically unknown or suspicious people. Harbeck noted that Public Safety would rather track calls that turn out to be nothing, rather than have something happen and hear about it later. “Be aware of your surroundings, if you see anything that seems out of place give [Public Safety] a call,” Zens said. “With the warming of the weather, this gets more important.” “Since we can’t be every place, even though we have cameras in certain places, being given a heads-up is a big help,” Harbeck said. Public Safety also offered a few tips for students, faculty and staff who may be worried about their car being potentially broken into. “People locking their vehicles is the easiest way to stop break-ins to vehicles,” Harbeck said. “A few years ago we had a rash of entries during the night due to a large amount of vehicles being unlocked. Kids would walk through the lots pulling on doors and when one was found unlocked, it would be rifled through.” Through publicity, the amount of entries due to unlocked cars decreased, the area was staked out and the culprits were eventually caught; though unlocked cars remain a concern. Drivers are also encouraged to take removable faceplates with them when parked, keeping valuables out of sight and storing any valuables they might have in their trunk; the same protocol that would be used when park-

ing anywhere publicly. “As entries like these remain crimes of opportunity, common sense attitudes about how to keep yourself and your belongings safe are important,” Harbeck said. “If we have a vigilant campus where people are looking out for other people and things that are going on that don’t seem right and people take the proper precautions, there’s not going to be the opportunity.” In order to create a safer environment for students, faculty, staff and their cars, Public Safety has also proposed a budget for next year as a part of the Master Plan. This would include lights and cameras to cover the entire Carroll perimeter. Footage from the video cameras would be continuously monitored from the Public Safety office. With the help of Student Senate, Carroll’s main crosswalks have already seen an addition of lights. “We also will be working more with the city to make sure that certain street areas are lit up like they’re supposed to be,” Harbeck said. “This would also include trimming trees to make sure that branches aren’t obstructing the lighting.” Also a part of the Master Plan would be an increase to, not only outdoor lot cameras, but also internal cameras. According to Zens, the goal would be for all residence halls to be equipped with such cameras. Quotes for the cameras and lights are currently being evaluated and should be approved later this spring.

Pewaukee ammo found In the wake of the breakup of the Police Department, Pewaukee city officials are trying to resolve a couple of nagging questions: What are they going to do with the 58,000 rounds of ammunition that are left over and why did the department stockpile so much? The 58,000 rounds of handgun, rifle and shotgun ammunition are about five times more than a department the size of the city force would require in a year for duty and training purposes, city officials said. City officials, meanwhile, are hoping to sell the excess ammo and are trying to determine just how much it is worth. – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

A European bank that lent money to five Wisconsin school districts that made risky investments has seized $5.6 million from districtcontrolled trusts to try to compel district officials to repay the debt. DEPFA Bank took the action earlier this week after a year of fruitless efforts to work out a restructuring of $165 million worth of loans to the districts’ trusts that have been in technical default for more than two years. Officials with the school districts - Kenosha, Kimberly, Waukesha, West AllisWest Milwaukee and Whitefish Bay - used the borrowed money plus other existing or borrowed assets to purchase $200 million worth of complex investment vehicles called collateralized debt obligations. Earlier this month, the districts were sent letters notifying them that DEPFA was demanding they pay the full amount of the principal and interest due on each of their loans. That notice cleared the way for the bank to seize the trust fund assets earlier this week. The amounts taken from each district’s trust were: Kenosha: $632,757.61 Kimberly: $134,233.10 Waukesha: $2,441,826.27 West Allis-West Milwaukee: $1,552,092.65 Whitefish Bay: $891,615.31

Fine arts administration major approved Kristina Ljujic

Staff Writer Carroll University’s art department is continuing to grow with the addition of a new minor in fine arts administration. The minor includes courses in business, accounting and the arts, as well as two new fine arts courses. It is aimed toward students who want to pursue careers in the fine arts, as well as students who are interested in them, but not necessarily in doing them. “Some people like the fine arts, but don’t like to do them,” said Phil Krejcarek, Chair of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts. “However, it also gives people in the fine arts another option.” According to Krejcarek, it is sometimes difficult for students to find jobs in the fine arts after graduation. If students add this new minor to their studies, they will be able to gain enough knowledge to, for example, be a museum curator or own a gallery. “I think it’s a good idea,” said Liz Tess, an art major at Carroll. “It opens new avenues for people after graduation when they have a hard time finding jobs.” Krejcarek said the minor would be a great addition to

those pursuing degrees in art, music or theatre. Students would have less difficulty finding a job and could still create art or perform on the side. “Students will be able to follow their passion and get a job,” Krejcarek said. “It’s practical.” The new fine arts courses would include an introduction to arts administration and legal issues in arts management. According to Lelan McLemore, Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, the courses were born from another idea. A legal issues course for music was being discussed, and McLemore brought up the idea of applying it to all of the arts, not just music. “Competition is fierce,” McLemore said. “This minor is something to fall back on.” It is unknown who will teach the fine arts courses, but they will be offered the year after the 2010-2011 academic year and include all of the fine arts: art, music and theatre. A major in the fine arts is not required for students to add fine arts administration as a minor—anyone interested in it can pursue it. If students become highly interested in the subject, the University of WisconsinMadison offers a master’s degree in fine arts administration.

UNAFF inspires Garett T. Laugavitz Staff Writer

Carroll University recently hosted the Fifth Annual United Nations Association’s Traveling Film Festival. The event featured documentaries and short films dealing with gripping themes that ranged from race relations to human rights, environmentalism and more. Films ran the gamut from the fallout in Fallujah to ongoing gang violence in Los Angeles. Another picture covered the mischievous deeds of imposters making satire out of the corporate and social status quo. Pictures were shown backto-back over the course of the day, each concluding with a brief discussion of the film’s subject

matter. Members of the faculty facilitated the discussions and encouraged viewers to voice their comments and critiques. Audiences were receptive and engaged, illustrated through the laughing and sighing, with the highs and lows, that could be heard during each documentary. The United Nations Association Film Festival was originally conceived to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Having championed that underlying purpose for over a decade, the organization has created a positive response across the world. The Waukesha Chapter of the United Nations Association, the Plowshare Center and the Student Senate all helped make the event possible.

Fashionably step into your big interview Bobby Schuessler

Editorial Staff As the dreaded interview process begins for those graduating seniors, not only should resumes and profiles be created, but that professional interview wardrobe should as well. Unfortunately, whether we wish to believe it or not, dress truly is crucial in making that desirable first impression. Therefore, jeans, sneakers, sweatpants, and wrinkled shirts are not acceptable for an interview. Keep these wardrobe essentials in mind as you shop for that perfect outfit. Women Two-buttoned suit. A suit is absolutely essential for any graduate school or job interview. Opt for a timeless, two-buttoned suit in either solid grey or black so it will never go out of style. Make sure to take the suit to a tailor so it fits correctly because there is nothing worse than looking like you borrowed your friends’ suit. While suits should be a splurge item so they will last for years, they really do come in a variety or price points to accommodate that graduate budget. Try Banana Republic, J. Crew, and, H & M for suit options. Solid button-front shirt.

A solid, button-front shirt that complements your skin tone, as well as your suit is crucial for an interview. Make sure the shirt always is pressed, and structured to achieve the most professional look. Stop by Express or Gap for shirt options. Black pumps. Do not even think about entering an interview in flats; therefore, every woman need s a pair of basic black pumps. Again, choosing something as timeless as possible is smart. Make sure the heel is not too short, but also not too h i g h . While 5 . 5 inch Christian Louboutins may be desirable for some people, a pair of 3 inch heels from Nine West also can be perfect for your interview. Tote bag. A beautiful bag is necessary as you prepare for an interview because you will need something sophisticated to carry that resume and portfolio. Again, a timeless tote bag should be a splurge item so it will last for years. However, beautiful and affordable bags also can be found at Target, Banana Repub-

lic, and Kohls. Men Two-buttoned suit. Just like the women, a two-buttoned, classic suit in black, navy, or grey is necessary for any man. Just make sure the suit is tailored to fit perfectly. The best part about a suit is you can mix and match it, and pair the blazer with jeans or the pants with a polo for a casual look. Try Banana Republic, Bacrach, or Boston Store for suit options. White button-front shirt. Every man needs a basic white button-front shirt for a classic, sophisticated look. Again, just make sure it is as crisp as possible, and pair it with your favorite color tie for the interview. Dress Shoes. Just like the above items, a perfect interview outfit cannot be complete without classic dress shoes. Opt for a more rounded-toe shoe for the classic, timeless look. Also, make sure your belt always matches your shoes, and your socks match your pants. Johnston & Murphy, Calvin Klein, and even Target have great dress shoe options.

Communication Club Jacky Meyer Staff Writer

After an uneventful year last year, Communication Club has become more active than ever during the 2009-2010 academic year. Even though there are only a handful of members so far, the organization hopes to expand with the upcoming events. “Joining Communication Club can be beneficial and help you even if you are not a Communication Major,” member Lyla Goerl said. Earlier this semester, Communication Club held Stress-Free Bingo during midterm week to give students the opportunity to relax and take a break from studying; prizes included gift cards to Target and Pick N Save and a professional hour-long massage. The members of Communication Club were very impressed with the turnout, and hope to plan more fun events

like this one in the future. The organization’s most recent service project involved giving support to the troops, where they collected anything that can be sent overseas to boost morale, as well as contribute to the basic needs of the soldiers. On Wednesday, Apr. 7, Communication Club plans on having guest speaker. J.D. Thorne, a Carroll professor spoke about communication to interested students. “We really want our org to show all of the areas of communication,” said President Jordan Reyes. “We are open to any new members and any major to make a difference in communication,” Goerl said. Make sure to keep an eye out for more events from this new, exciting organization. Weekly meetings are at 9 p.m. on Mondays in the Ratzow Room. Any interested students can contact Jordan Reyes at jreyes@carrollu.edu.

Keeping the above fashion tips in mind will definitely impress an interviewer as you take that stylish step forward in life.

Graduating profile series: part three Caitlin Schmitt

Staff Writer With less than half a semester left until graduation Carroll University seniors Nicole Robinson, Chelsea Blackburn and Sarah Katchkey shared their future plans and aspirations.

Nicole Robinson

“I’m going to try to get an apartment after graduation in the Bay View area,” Robinson said. “I think apartments would be cheaper there.” While Robinson still hopes to move to Arizona someday, “…I do not have the money right now.” Robinson plans to enroll in graduate school in the fall of 2011, and is considering studying cellular biology, microbiology or immunology. She plans to keep working at SF Analytical, and “…will be able to work there full-time once I graduate,” Robinson said. Robinson will attend the National Biology Conference in May where she will present her capstone project. She advises future seniors to “…work on your capstone project as soon as possible, and do not wait until the last minute.”

Chelsea Blackburn

After graduation Blackburn plans to work abroad in Ireland through the British Universities North America Club (BUNAC) work abroad program. “I’m about 90 percent sure about the twelve month program,” Blackburn said. She is currently deciding between living in Dublin or Galway and plans to leave sometime in July. “I’m kind of freaking out because I have never been out of the country.” Blackburn decided to work abroad through the BUNAC program because “…there are student discount options and they help with travel insurance and a work visa.” Also, the BUNAC program “…makes me feel

like I’m not being foolish; I’m not confident about planning on my own. It’s a safety net and I need that.” Once Blackburn arrives in Ireland she will be responsible for finding her own housing and job. “I will work in a pub, restaurant or an office job,” Blackburn said. Blackburn has not found any jobs in Ireland where she can use her writing degree, but is “…so excited to travel and see things.” She plans to find a place to live about two weeks prior to leaving for Ireland, but if she cannot find a place she may stay in hostels. While she is excited to travel to Ireland, Blackburn is also scared and nervous. “My biggest worry is money. I am thinking about grad school and I do not want to run out.” Blackburn is still considering enrolling in graduate school in the fall of 2011, but she may wait another year depending on when she returns from Ireland. Blackburn advises Carroll students to take an NCEP or study abroad. “My biggest regret is not taking an NCEP or studying abroad,” Blackburn said. The BUNAC work abroad program will make up for that missed opportunity, and “I am

trying not to talk myself out of it. I am reminding myself it is the things you don’t do that you regret more.”

Sarah Katchkey To prepare for the job searching and interview process, Katchkey created a new email account just for jobs. Also, “… over spring break I updated my resume and cover letter, and I [went] online and applied for as many positions as I could.” Hydrothermal Corporation, where Katchkey works as an intern, may give her a job after she graduates. After asking for this

position, she said, “…don’t be afraid to ask for something you want. You might as well ask.” At Hydrothermal Corporation “…we create a custom hydroheater or EZ heater, which makes the manufacturing process easier. It’s a business-to-business product,” Katchkey said. She works in the marketing department and conducts online research and updates the customer database. She also makes the brochures and PowerPoints that the sales department shows to companies. Katchkey has been researching job sites and is currently interested in two marketing posi-

tions at Kohl’s. “I would love to work for a clothing company in fashion merchandising,” Katchkey said. Carroll’s business club, Students In Free Enterprise, (SIFE) won first runner-up in regionals for business clubs. SIFE has improved its standing in this conference every since Katchkey became president. As for graduate school, “I’m still thinking about going in the next year or two,” Katchkey said. She recommends that students “…get to know [their] professors. They may have good contacts for [them].”

Fall down the rabbit hole with Burton’s “Alice” Amanda Palczynski Editoral Staff

Visionary Tim Burton’s interpretation of Alice in Wonderland hit theaters Mar. 5 after eager anticipation from the quirky, vivid posters depicting Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. In the new movie, nineteenyear-old Alice Kingsleigh returns to Underland which she misheard as a child and thought was ‘Wonderland.’ Once there, she is told that she is the only one who can finally slay the Jabberwocky and end the Red Queen’s terrible reign, but her failure to remember her adventures in ‘Wonderland’ as a young girl hinders this achievement. With the help of such reoccurring characters as the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the Dormouse, Alice must work to recapture the ‘memory’ of Wonderland as a child and realize her true role in the magical world’s fate. “Tim Burton and Johnny Depp really make the roles believable, and you easily get lost in their movies,” said Junior and Biology major Katherine Turuc. Turuc also claimed that Burton did an excellent job of perpetuating this believability

by taking normal actors and depicting them in an outrageous cartoonish fashion, yet still portraying them as real human characters. The film was meant to follow three fantastical tales written by British author Lewis Caroll, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” “Through the LookingGlass,” and “What Alice Found There.” As the Mad Hatter, Depp recited the eerie, phantasmagoric poem found in the two latter books, “Jabberwocky,” foreshadowing Alice’s fate as she sits on the brim of his hat. “I think that the movie followed the books pretty well and that the books and movie complemented each other,” said sophomore Amanda Heidemann. While some were enthralled by Tim Burton’s illustration of Alice’s adventures, Freshman and Psychology major Aaron Neitzel was left with expectations unfulfilled and a lack of resolution. “What originally attracted me to this movie was the fact that it was a remake of what was originally an animated movie, geared somewhat towards younger audiences. I had high expectations going in, but these were not met mainly because the movie failed to capture my imagination,” Neitzel said. “It kept me entertained, but I didn’t feel

as if I was truly in a “mad world,” like the one that I was hoping Johnny Depp would be able to create, even by himself. Overall, even with the 3D glasses, I was just not terribly immersed by the movie.” English Professor Dr. Lara Karpenko said, “I think people are interested in Alice because of the weirdness of it. I really do. There was a resurgence of interest in the 60’s because young people could relate to the strangeness. And people still read it to their kids, who are drawn into the fantasy world while adults are really attracted to the bizarreness, even today.” Clearly, Tim Burton’s “Alice” transmitted an enigma that attracted all age groups. Whether you have read the literature or enjoy the latest Burton film, one ca not help but be drawn to Lewis Carroll’s depiction of the Jabberwocky that resonates over time: “`Twas brillig, and the slithy tove, Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.”

Top 10 workout songs for springing ahead Evihn Vaszily

6. Bombs Over BaghdadOutkast Moving with a light speed rhythm that characterizes the workout mentality, with an epic melody to accompany super-fast paced rapping by Outkast, one cannot help but be pushed to the limits when this song comes on.

Staff Writer

Keep these top ten workout songs in mind if you are looking to maintain that body for Spring, or searching for a great song to listen to on that pleasant walk around campus. 1. Lets Go- Trick Daddy featuring Lil John and Twista With an unforgettable guitar riff borrowed from Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train, shouted vocals that are characteristic of Lil Jon and a super-speed rap performance from Twista, this song is sure to get you pumped and ready to go. After all, the name of the song says it all.

2. Eye of the Tiger- Survivor Obviously a notable audio force in countless movies during any action scene, this song simply could not be forgotten in this lineup. With a relentlessly driving rock rhythm that is as classic as rock itself, Eye of the Tiger will forever be a part of the workout playlist.

3. Soul Survivor-Young Jeezy ft. Akon With a melody packing a major punch in the background and a bass line that will shake any house, the instrumentals alone make this a power tune. Put together with the message the lyrics put forth, that of being a “soul survivor,” this song has no difficulty in making the charts. 4.

HOO & Student Senate

CONTROVERSY Heather Markovich Editorial Staff

Controversy erupted between Carroll University’s House of Organizations (HOO) and Student Senate when $20,900 was approved for a speaker during Diversity Week. Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell spoke on Sunday, Mar. 28 at 7:30p.m. in Carroll’s Shattuck Auditorium about his 2007 #1 New York Times best-selling book “Lone Survivor” which illustrated the survival story of four Navy SEALS who journeyed through Afghanistan and Pakistan on Operation Redwing. Though the event received a large turn-out, both groups experienced miscommunication issues that brought to light a storm of unanswered questions about budget and organizational procedures. During the Student Senate meeting on Sunday Feb. 14, a request for $20,900 for the Luttrell event was brought forth to members. Earlier that week, HOO members had heard the request and voted “No,” pleading a need for further information on the subject. Continued on the following page.


Lack of communication leads to disgruntled HOO members From previous page. “We just thought $20,900 was a lot of money for one person to come speak,” HOO delegate Darlyn Buelow said. “We didn’t know ‘tabling’ the request was an option, so we voted ‘no’ and made it clear to our Student Senate liaison Emily [Thungkaew] that we wanted more information and that was why we voted the way we did.” On the day of the Student Senate vote on Feb. 14, Thungkaew was unable to attend so sophomore Trent Mortimer filled in. After Mortimer gave an explanation of HOO’s vote, junior Luke Bennewitz made a motion to send the request back to HOO with more information; this was seconded by junior Megan Luepke. “I wanted it to be sent back because [their] voices matter,” Bennewitz said. “If they didn’t have the proper information provided to make a decision, it should have logically been sent back... However, Bennewitz’s motion was denied and the main motion to approve

the money was continued, resulting in approval among Student Senate with 5 ‘nays’; four from HOO’s votes in Senate and another from Bennewitz. Objections from HOO erupted soon thereafter, as members had been under the impression that they hadn’t actually ‘voted’ but had merely asked for more information. Staszewski noted that the reason Bennewitz’s motion to send the request back to HOO with more information was denied was for a few reasons. “First off, the issue was time sensitive regarding Luttrell’s travel, payment and having everything approved with his management,” Staszewski said. He explained that Senate has thought about bringing in more interesting, big-time educational speakers perhaps in lieu of a band at the end of the year, -- a focus on educational events over entertainment events. This was why Staszewski had put in the request for Luttrell during the time he did. “$20,000 could be a going rate with big, best-selling author speakers such as

the one we had,” Staszewski said. “It was because of the time sensitive matter of the issue and the time at which it was presented that [we] didn’t send it back to HOO.” Because Staszewski hadn’t been able to attend the original meeting in which the Luttrell event was presented to HOO, he decided to speak to the HOO members regardless of the vote to clarify things. Luttrell himself had mixed reviews. Some students felt he was too provocative or should have spoken longer. Senior Eric Riedel, who owns Luttrell’s book said, “It was a once in a lifetime experience to meet someone like that. I don’t think I’ll ever meet someone as sefless.” Riedel added that he himself is looking into joining the military. “The long and short of the matter is had HOO run on Parliamentary procedure and ‘tabled’ the request because of a lack of information, Senate would have gone over it again with their members,” Staszewski said. “But what we had here was a case of lack of communication and in translating two different procedures.”

Parlimentary Procedure & Budget Concerns Heather Markovich

Editorial Staff This idea of HOO’s organization and whether or not they should run with a similar Parliamentary procedure as Senate’s had been one of debate for awhile. “Parliamentary procedure is more of a Senate deal,” Buelow said. “[HOO] has hardly any time for training and a limited amount of time to get together due to our member-base.” Indeed HOO members are not elected to their positions, unlike Senate members, so debate on availability or even a general interest is amicable. If a more stable form of procedure and organization is what HOO would need, Student Affairs Coordinator Christine Gravelle believes that Student Senate should be a guiding force. “HOO came from Senate. It was implemented and put into the Constitution,” Gravelle said. “Senate needs to own HOO and train them. But, in reverse, HOO needs to come up with the things that Senate had wanted to see of them.” As for the other main question concerning the $300,000 student activities budget (where the $20,900 came from) another prime communication error was the determining factor. Director of Student Activities, Elizabeth Brzeski, believed the major issue came from the vernacular that was used. In January it was found that there was $300,000 left to spend and the majority of that was allocated. Later, addi-

tional money was put into the budget to spend as well. However, due to the large influx of admissions in the beginning of the year, additional funds were not added the Senate account until second semester. Student Senate Treasurer Jill Griffis and Brzeski went into the budget and saw that extra money needed to be spent, so Griffis returned to Senate with the report of extra money that could be used to fill requests such as speakers. Her report of extra money was misinterpreted as $300,000 left to allocate rather than only a few tens of thousands that had potential for new allocations or budget requests. “No one knew how much was really ‘allocatable’,” Staszewski said. “…so people’s different assumptions led to different ideas on where we ‘thought’ we were.” “The budget confusion was the result of communication done in an ineffective and untimely manner,” Brzeski said. “90 percent of that is my fault in the poor word usage and verbalization that was given.” As for HOO members and Student Senate relations since the incident two members of HOO, including Buelow, presented their thoughts, opinions and hopes for future partnership at the Senate meeting on Sunday, Mar. 28.

Special Contribution Every time we turn around, we see some evidence of global warming and environmental destruction. It’s a serious problem that threatens the planet and everyone on it. That’s why students on campuses across the country are finding ways to make their home away from home more eco-friendly. At the University of Minnesota, they have outfitted their new architectural building with desks made from recyclable materials. Eco-friendly furniture is a smart choice because conventional furniture can emit toxic fumes from the plastics, woods, and glues used to manufacture these items which can cause negative health effects. Elsewhere in

California, Humboldt State University heats a student residence hall with bike-powered generators along with greenhouse heat. Other colleges have even made efforts to be more sustainable in their food programs by getting rid of foam and paper packaging, buying local organic foods, and planting organic gardens.

Editorial: How are we respresenting Carroll? Student Senate hosted another Mayoral Forum on Monday Mar. 29 but challenger Jeff Scrima was unable to join, and so, Incumbent Larry Nelson utilized his time to speak to Carroll Students. When an article explaining the scheduling and hosting issues appeared in The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Southeastern Wisconsin had these choice words to say online: Distracted Housewife: Hmmmm. Interesting. Well, that’s Scrima for you. Busy, busy, busy. Too busy to learn anything about the job he wants, too busy

to name the supposed “panel of experts” that are going to help him run the city, too busy to make time for Carroll University, a major part of the city. What’s the matter Jeff? Afraid they were going to ask you about those tunnels you want to dig under East Avenue? pkent: What a joke... Carroll University is a MAJOR institution in the city in which this guy is running for mayor. That’s a pretty big insult. richardson50: Good for Scrima, he was at Carroll for the primaries and there were few students in attendance. I think it

is a front for others with a personal agenda. Distracted Housewife: Carroll is the HOST. Most of the students don’t even vote here. Carroll hosts the event for the community. Maybe Scrima just thinks he’s blowing off the non-resident students, but it’s the whole neighborhood around Carroll. superdavefive: I think we should get a better explaination on why Scrima can’t make it other than he’s “busy.” What the heck is more important than a public debate before a crowd of people a couple weeks before the

election? It speaks volumes not only to those who would have attended, but also those who would read about it either online or in the newspaper. I see pluses and minuses for both candidates. I am undecided. This is undoubtedly a strike against Scrima. Waukinthepark: Scrima is I’m sure busy getting ready for the job which he is going to take from Lefty Larry on the 6th. Carroll even said that it was a student error. I wouldn’t be to worried about not attending a meeting at a school that needs crossing guards to help college kids cross the street.

Baseball leaves Florida disappointed after a 2-4 start Josh DeGrasse-Baumann

Staff Writer Misfortune plagued the beginning of the Pioneer baseball season, leading to a disappointing start. Despite feeling confident prior to the season, Carroll was unable to meet their desired 6-2 record in Ft. Myers, Fla. Instead, they suffered two injuries to crucial team players. The Pioneers currently hold a 2-6 record, after having their games in Fulton, Mo. canceled. The season began Mar. 6 at the Gene Cusic Classic where Carroll took on the Elms College Blazers. The Pios took the lead in the second inning, and never gave it up, ending with a 9-5 win. Jason Pattengale earned the win, allowing four earned runs on five hits in his five innings of work. He also struck out five batters. Offensively, the team was led by center fielder Luke Melms’ three hits, including a two RBI triple in the second. He would finish with three RBIs. Catcher Tyler Fitzsimmons also had three RBIs on two hits and a run scored. A Mar. 7 game against North Park University brought Carroll their first loss of the season, falling 6-2. Starter Cale Ross surren-

dered five runs on ten hits, despite striking out eight batters. Third baseman Drew Volkmann led the Pioneer offense with two hits. His second hit of the game was an RBI double, driving in George Simons for Carroll’s first run of the game. Volkmann would score two atbats later on a sacrifice fly from Fitzsimmons. The second game of the day, against Southern Vermont College, was the start of a losing streak for Carroll. They dropped 16-15 for their second loss of the season. Carroll outhit Southern Vermont 18 to 14. The Pioneers took on the Olivet College Comets Mar. 8. After falling behind 7-2, they would suffer a devastating blow to their line-up in the seventh inning that would overshadow the 8-5 loss. Volkmann was hit by a pitch, causing an injury that would require him to leave the game. He hasn’t appeared in a game since being hit, but he expects to return for the home opener April 2. Prior to the incident, Volkmann held a .588 average, gathering 10 hits, five of which went for extra bases. He is currently third on the team with 5 RBIs. “Hopefully I can get back to that,” Volkmann said. “I think I’ll be fine after the first

game.” A 6-4 loss against Illinois College extended Carroll’s losing streak to four. Ryne Plager started the game, but would get the loss after six and a third innings of work where he gave up six runs on nine hits. Carroll’s offense provided an early three run lead in the bottom of the first, but Illinois College chipped away and overtook the Pioneers 6-3, resulting in Plager’s exit. His replacement, Justin Ahrens, would finish out the inning and pass the ball to Steve Belknap who would not allow any runs in the final two innings. Unfortunately, the Pioneers were unable to catch up. The Pioneers wrapped up their spring trip with a game against the University of Dubuque. The 9-0 shutout, ending Carroll’s losing streak, was the result of 12 hits, two hit by pitches, three walks and four Dubuque errors. Fitzsimmons led the offense with three hits and two RBIs. The team had three games scheduled in Missouri against Westminster College, but the games were canceled due to bad weather. With the cancellations, the Pioneers had sixteen days of rest before their Mar. 27 doubleheader against North Central College. The Pioneers would go the entire day without scoring a run,

losing 8-0 and then 5-0. Both starters, Ross and Plager respectively, would pitch just four innings. In the first game of the two seven inning games, Ross allowed six runs, five of which were earned. Buhrow and Tim Holan would each pitch one inning where both gave up another run. Offensively, Carroll was held to just three hits. Plager allowed four runs on six hits in the second game before being relieved by Belknap, who would pitch the final two innings, collecting three strikeouts, while allowing an unearned run and two hits. Carroll was able to muster five hits, including two extra base hits: a triple by Matt Francois and a double by Jordan Stephans. Pattengale, the only pitcher on the staff with a win, suffered an injury to his ankle. His return this season is questionable. Even with Pattengale gone, Volkmann doesn’t feel the season is over. “We have a young staff,” he said, “We’ll be fine later on.” The Pioneers currently have a team batting average of .289, 42 points lower than their opponents’ batting average. They have a team ERA of 6.86, compared to an opposing 4.34. A preseason poll by Midwest Conference coaches lists Carroll

as the fifth place team in the North Division. Carroll has not played against anyone in their division yet. The Pioneers return to action Mar. 31 at Wisconsin Lutheran College. Two days later, they will participate in a home opening doubleheader against University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Following an Apr. 6 doubleheader against Marian University, Carroll will begin division play against Lawrence University, first at home, and then at Lawrence on Apr. 10 and 11 respectively.

Softball looks to improve in young season after 4-6 start Lyla Goerl

Editorial Staff Training in Ft. Myers, Fla. gave Carroll’s softball team time to improve their stats, but unfortunately it was a tough session, ending with a record of 3-5. After the first four games in their schedule, Carroll went 1-3, with a 5-2 win against Wilmington (Ohio) College. One loss was a blowout, falling 0-10 against Ohio Wesleyan University in 5 innings. The two other losses were: 0-3 against College of Wooster and 1-5 against Washington (Maryland) University. The second half of the trip brought the girls 2-2. The first game they fell to North Park University with a loss of 11-0 in 5 innings. The girls played well but lost by one to New Jersey City University in the second game. On Mar. 11 the team won 3-1 against Rockford College and won 4-0 against Drew University. The team struggled in batting and finished with a .177 batting average. Freshman Christine Roggemann, and sophomores Tessa Boushley and Amanda Strutz finished the week with batting averages above .260. The week in Florida gave the entire team a chance to improve their skills. Sophomore Nicki Leden did her best to showcase her improvements from her freshman season. “It wasn’t that different from last year,” said Leden. “We played the same teams as last year.” Leden also expressed that Florida helped coach Amy Gradecki determine which girls should start in which games, giv-

ing the girls a chance to prove themselves. Roggemann proved herself by transitioning from high school softball to college as a starting pitcher in four games and designated hitter in three. “We learned how to deal with situations and adjusting to a new level of robust playing,” said Roggemann, a pitcher for

the team. “Another thing we learned was mental toughness.” Following the trip, Freshman Aimee Ambrose reflected on her progression as she moved up from East Troy High School. She managed to start two games while in Ft. Myers. “I worked at it a lot in high school,” said Ambrose. “It took a lot of time and practice to get

where I am today.” This year the team welcomed Gradecki, Carroll’s new coach. She came from Wilmot Union High School, but has been an assistant coach at Carroll for five years. “One thing this trip gave the girls was a great learning experience,” said Gradecki. “Each game gave more intensity, and

they know what it takes to win the games.” With two weeks in between Florida and their next game the team made use of the extended break to work on technique and teamwork. The longer the team plays together and practices with one another, the better they will get. Florida went a long way to bring the team closer together, not to mention work on their tans. In their first games in the Midwest, the Lady Pioneers split a double header at Wisconsin Lutheran College winning the first game 8-3 but losing the second 2-6. The Lady Pioneers were recently voted to finish 4th in the Midwest Conference-North Division by the conference coaches. They open up the conference season at Ripon College on Apr. 3. They will play on Carroll’s campus for the first time in 2010 on Apr. 12 against Alverno College. “We know what the competition is like,” said Roggemann. “…I think it will be a good year and potential for the team.” After seeing the team work hard in Florida, Gradecki is excited for the coming season, with an optimistic attitude that works well with the team building. “It is great working with these girls,” said Gradecki. “It is a big opportunity to work with them, and it is nice to see them with a winning attitude.” Looking for their first trip to the Midwest Conference Tournament since 2001 the Lady Pios will start conference play with the the five game two day Midwest Conference Crossover Classic Apr. 10-11 in Janesville, Wisc.

Men’s Golf starts out spring season at Millikin and Knox Justin Koepsell Editorial Staff

The Carroll University Men’s Golf team had a great fall season and the spring season got under way over spring break when the Pioneers headed to central Illinois for the Millikin University Invitational in Decatur, Ill. Playing teams who got a chance to practice outside more in their southern climate took its toll on the still rusty Pioneers as they finished 6th among ten teams on Oak Terrace Golf Course. The hosting Big Blue of Millikin took the lead into Friday night and inclement weather on Saturday rained out the second day of competition. Carroll finished 26 strokes off the pace with a total of 335. Eric Busalacchi and Jay Gitlewski led the Pioneers by shooting an 82 each to tie for 22nd in 55 golfer field. Sam Luedtke shot 85 for a 30th place finish. Millikin golfer Cory Henry led all with a low score of 74. After three weeks of practice the Pioneers traveled to conference rival Knox College’s classic in Galesburg, Ill. Carroll enjoyed a great first day and shot a team total of 306 led by Gitlewski’s 74 to take the first day lead in the field of sixteen teams including five other Midwest Conference schools. The second day of the Knox Classic saw a hard charge by Monmouth College and Wheaton College to take the team lead away from the Pioneers. Carroll still managed a good set of rounds and was able to shoot a 311 but it was not enough as they fell to third place. Still a strong showing losing to premier programs in their respective conferences. Monmouth

won the meet with a score of 609, eight ahead of Carroll. Gitlewski shot 78 the second day to tie for 5th overall with a weekend total of 152. Luedtke was right behind that with a score 153 to tie for 8th place. Michael Riek was the other top 25 finisher wearing the Orange and White with a score of 155.

Monmouth golfer Sean McNamara put up the top score of the weekend of 150. The Pioneers will return to the links Easter weekend when they head to the highly competitive Illinois Wesleyan University Invitational at Ironwood Golf Course in Normal, Ill. Illinois Wesleyan is currently ranked

#12 in the nation and headline this elite field. The next weekend they face Midwest Conference North Division schools at the Ripon College Invitational at Lawsonia Golf Course in Green Lake, Wisc. Apr. 10-11. The Women’s Golf team will be returning to action for the first time since winning the Mid-

west Conference Championship back in October. They will first play at the UW-Oshkosh Titan Invitational at Oshkosh Country Club Apr. 10-11 in preparation for the biggest meet in the history of the program when they head to Florida in May for the NCAA Division III National Championship Meet.

Tennis moves to 6-4 Justin Koepsell Editorial Staff

After going 2-0 during spring break, the Carroll University Men’s Tennis team fell to in-state power UW-Oshkosh before losing to Milwaukee School of Engineering on Sunday. Riding a three match winning streak into the month of March, the Pioneers headed to West Bend to face two Northern Athletic Conference teams. In the first match of the day Carroll upended the Sabres of Marian University 8-1. The lone loss was at No. 1 Singles where Jory Lawson of Marian edged Seth Pamperin 11-9 in the tiebreaker. The rest of the team won every set with match victories at Singles Play by Kevin Rasmussen, John Silseth, Frankie Giuffre, Robert Leeder and Devin Nielsen. The doubles play was a complete sweep for the Pios as they went a combined 24-8 in three matches. Against the hosts of Concordia University the Pioneers found themselves in a tougher battle. Four of the six singles matches went to tiebreakers. Each side took two tiebreakers and three of the matches overall. Carroll won the No. 4, No. 5 and No. 6 Singles matches with victories by Shea O’Rorke, Giuf-

fre and Nielsen respectively. In Doubles Play, Carroll got two victories to take the day 5-4 over Concordia. Pamperin and Matt Joost combined for an 8-2 victory at No. 2 Doubles and O’Rourke and Giuffre combined for an 8-5 victory at No. 3 Doubles. Following spring break, Carroll traveled to the coasts of Lake Winnebago to take on the UW-Oshkosh Titans. The Titans came in on a seven match winning streak and carried that momentum to a sweep of the Pioneers dropping the Orange and White to a 6-3 record on the year. In a rare Sunday evening match the Pioneers traveled to play the MSOE Raiders. The Pios were able to control Doubles Play winning the matches at No. 2 and No. 3 by teams of Rasmussen-Silseth and GiuffreO’Rorke respectively. However, in Singles play, MSOE was able to take four of the six matches to secure a 5-4 victory. Rasmussen and Joost were the only winners for the Pioneers as they took No. 1 and No. 4 Singles respectively. The Pioneers return to action Apr. 11 when they face Wisconsin Lutheran College and Rockford College in nonconference doubleheader at home starting at 9 a.m.

10 Carroll Invitational John Hoch represents Carroll at D3 All-Star Game //Apr.SPORTS WIRE Ross Bukouricz Staff Writer

The list of post season accolades for Carroll University senior point guard John Hoch is an impressive one: 1st Team All-Midwest Conference, Midwest Conference Player of the Year, Academic All-American, National Player of the Year finalist, two different All-American teams and an NCAA Division III senior all-star game participant. He is the second most prolific scorer and distributor in school history but has had an even larger impact on his team. His knowledge of the game of basketball is like having another coach on the floor. This was never by design or something asked of him, it was just bread out of necessity. “[It was] more instinctive as a point guard, comes with the job: calling plays and getting guys in position,” said Hoch about his leadership role. This outspoken role on the team would be surprising to anyone who only knew him off the court. Away from basketball, Hoch considers himself more of a quiet guy, especially around people he doesn’t know all that well. This thought was echoed by teammates Eric Thompson, Taylor Jansen and Paul Grosshuesch. All three men mentioned how much of a competitor he is on the court, while at the same time being soft spoken and a humble guy. “John is a silent assassin. He

is quiet and polite for 22 hours a day, then when it’s game time..... look out! He is as competitive as it gets, a gentlemen and a warrior all in one,” Coach David Buchanan said. The end of his Carroll career does not mark the end of his basketball career. Hoch is currently looking at playing basketball overseas. If no opportunity to play presents itself, he hopes to get into coaching basketball. He also has another year of school for his degree in physical and health education, which may extend his relationship with Carroll to be the graduate assistant under Coach Buchanan. Either way, he hopes to someday become a gym teacher and a high school basketball coach. Aside from basketball, sports are still a very large part of Hoch’s life. He was a four-sport athlete at Hartland Arrowhead High School, also being a part of the football, track and baseball teams. Participating in so many sports bred a strong connection with the school, which made him feel compelled to follow the school’s boys basketball team, which recently made a run to the Division I state title. “[I] think my team was better,” about his senior team that lost in the state semi-finals to eventual champion Oshkosh West that featured Tim Jarmusz, who now starts at small forward for the University of Wisconsin, “…[we] just didn’t have size.” When getting away from organized sports, Hoch enjoys being outdoors. Hiking and whitewater rafting are two of his

Grafenauer, Gruenke & O’Grady earn All-American Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Staff Writer

Carroll University’s Indoor Track team wrapped up their season with three performances at the NCAA Division III National Championships in Green Castle, Ind Mar. 12 and 13. While the Men’s team did not participate in the meet, the Women had three representatives, each of whom came away with All-American honors. Justin Troeller provisionally qualified at the Last Chance Meet for the 55-meter hurdles, but his time was not fast enough to secure a spot at Nationals. Lindsay Gruenke was the first Carroll athlete to compete, finishing the 400-meter dash with a time of 57.73, earning seventh place and All-American honors. Gruenke, a sophomore, was competing in her first national meet at Carroll and became the first Carroll athlete to compete nationally in the 400-meter dash for Indoor Track. “I did not expect any of this to happen,” Gruenke said, “and it was really exciting.” Her qualification came just a week before Nationals at the Last Chance Meet at UWWhitewater, where she posted a school record time of 57.57. She would break this record by posting a time of 57.28 in the preliminaries at Nationals to qualify for the finals. Gruenke was also named Midwest Conference Performer of the Week on Feb. 9, after setting a school record in the 200-meter dash. Senior Becca Grafenauer

was the next to compete. She received her first Indoor Track AllAmerican honor in her final Indoor Track season, taking eighth place in the pole vault with a height of 3.61 meters. She earned her first AllAmerican title in the 2009 Outdoor Track season, but has competed in the Indoor Nationals twice before, placing tenth each time. “It wasn’t one of my best heights,” Grafenauer said, “… but I was really glad I was still able to be an All-American.” Grafenauer automatically qualified for Nationals in the Pointer Invitational Feb. 6, where she posted a school record height of 3.85 meters.

Grafenauer received Midwest Conference Performer of the Week honors Jan. 29, following a provisional qualification in the pole vault. Megan O’Grady, a sophomore, competed in the 5000-meter run to finish Carroll’s appearance at Nationals. She finished with a time of 17:05.83, a new school record. Her finish was just over a second behind fourth place, but was still enough to earn the third All-American honor for Carroll. This was O’Grady’s second All-American honor in her time at Carroll, having earned her first in the 2009 Outdoor Track season. She also participated in the 2009 NCAA Division III Cross

Country Championship. O’Grady automatically qualified for the National meet with a time of 17:08.62 at the Monmouth College Invitational Feb. 13. “For me, becoming an AllAmerican for Indoor was a huge deal,” O’Grady said. “Getting three girls to nationals was huge.” O’Grady earned Midwest Conference Performer of the Week honors after provisionally qualifying for the 5000-meter run in late January. The track team will be heading outside for the Outdoor season, where a record in the hammer throw was already broken by Josh Joost with a distance of 45.67m.

SPORTS FACTOID In the 1970 season, Carroll College’s men’s basketball team played against in-city rival Mt. St. Paul College, a new liberal arts college on the north end of Barstow Street.
