Res-life searches for Tuition raises for 2011sixth area director 2012 tied to services Arthur W. Thomas
The Department of Residence Life is in the process for hiring a sixth Area Director because of the new complex. The apartment style residence hall Frontier Hall will stand as its own complex with one Area Director, one Community Coordinator, and a staff of Resident Assistants. The new complex requires the hiring of a sixth Area Director to join the current staff. “We are very excited about Frontier Hall being built and ready for the fall,” said Steve Weaver, Director of Residence Life. “We felt as though Frontier Hall’s capacity, at over 200 beds, would be best managed and our students would have the most positive experience by having another Area Director in Frontier Hall.” Because of this need, Residence Life began the process of searching for applicants for the position last year. “Residence Life posted the Area Director position an-
nouncement on multiple websites and has interviewed applicants though that process,” said Weaver. To help expedite the application process, Residence Life recently went to the Oshkosh Placement Exchange (OPE) from March 4 – 6 on the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh campus. “The Oshkosh Placement Exchange is an opportunity for college and university employers to meet and interview candidates from across the country,” said Weaver. “Typically these positions are entry level or graduate assistantships within the field of Residence Life and I find the exchange to be a great way to connect with professional colleagues and to build better support networks in our field.” This year at OPE, Residence Life had current Resident Assistants assist Weaver and some of the other Area DirecAREA DIRECTOR continued on Page 2

At the end of February, Carroll students were given the news that the Board of Trustees had approved a new set of tuition, fee, room, and board charges. The changes were highlighted by a 4.95 percent increase in tuition, bringing the cost for the 2011-12 school year to $24,749. Other increases include between higher rates for rooms, with doubles at Hartwell or Barney costing $359 more than the current year. The new Frontier Hall will cost the same as Pioneer Hall. Pio say an increase of $272 over this year. The new fees take effect for Summer School 2011. This means students living on campus for the summer will face housing costs that vary. Meal plans also increased in cost. A 140 block plan will cost $148 more and a 220 block plan increased $198 in cost with plans in between also increasing in cost. In a letter to Carroll students and parents, President Dr. Douglas Hastad wrote that the increases balanced “affordable increases with instructional needs.” Hastad also noted how the increase would allow the university to continue offering “a first-rate ‘Carroll Experience.’” “It is a four year experience, it’s primarily a residential experience, it’s an opportunity for undergraduate students in particular to become mentored by and very close to faculty,” said Hastad in an interview with the New Perspective. “We have a program array that is very appealing and we encourage students to be involved in things other than just the academic side of the house.” Hastad said that costs go up in part because the university is responding to requests for services from students. “It’s in every facet of the operation from where you live to the food you eat to the library you study in to the second cup coffee,” said Hastad. “It’s all a part of it, and we need to create that because that’s what we’re hearing people want.”

Tuition increases are nothing new in higher education. A New Perspective analysis of fee structures dating back to 199091 found an increase every year. The tuition for 1990-91, the earliest year in the analysis was $10,160, adjusted for inflation the number rises to $17,119. On a year-by-year basis, Carroll’s tuition has increased between three and five percent over the last 20 years. “The costs associated with the operation historically have gone up on a regular and steady basis,” said Hastad. “Our energy costs go up, our technology costs go up, you want to provide modest increases for faculty and staff, and so costs in general of the operation go up.” However, Carroll has increased tuition by 4.95 percent for the last four years. Part of the administration’s goal is to keep increases consistent. What we have tried to avoid…is the ups and downs,” said Ron Lostetter, Vice Presi-

dent of Finance and Administrative Services. “Many other institutions, we can all pick out those who might have raised it eight [percent] and those who might have raised it zero [percent], for what, one year.” In the letter to students and parents, Hastad referenced how the university chose to email the letter instead of mailing it to save money. “Let’s say that saved us five or seven thousand dollars,” said Ron Lostetter, Vice President of Finance and Administrative Services. “Well that’s five or seven thousand dollars we can put into a classroom.” Lostetter emphasized how Carroll looks to save money in smaller ways without reducing service to students. “Any time there is a repetitive process,” said Lostetter. “We want to see if we can automate it so to speak without losing that person to person experience.” TUITION continued on Page 3

Waukesha City Administrator tabbed for Missouri City position
River Mill Foods to open in Waukesha The newest addition to Downtown Waukesha will be RiverMill Foods, specializing in homemade cheesecake, soup, bread and catering. The store is moving from its Merton, Wis., location to 290 W. Main St. in Waukesha. According to the website, the store will offer lunch services from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in addition to taking orders. Soups, bread and salad will be offered during lunch hours. –Waukesha Freeman Have you read an interesting local news story? Share the link with us on our facebook page!
“I wanted to personally inform you that I was recruited by a national executive search firm and have been selected as one of four finalists for the Columbia, Missouri City Manager position,” Luther said in an e-mail to the Common Council, department heads and Mayor Jeff Scrima.
tors in the interview process for the sixth position. “This year we had some of our student staff members attend and assist with interviews,” said Weaver. “This was a tremendous leadership opportunity for the staff and also helped bring the student voice into our process.” Weaver also commented on where the process goes from here. Our professional staff team met last week to review the files of candidates who had reached the second round of interviews with us and determined our list of candidates who will be offered an on-campus interview,” said Weaver. “I am currently in the process of contacting these candidates to make arrangements.” Weaver also commented on the dynamic that a sixth Area Director will bring to the Residence Life staff. “I anticipate the additional Area Director position to be beneficial to our office in many ways, not the least of which would be additional on-call support, an additional colleague to collaborate with on committee work and tasks within our office and division, and another voice at the table,” said Weaver. “I find that having that additional voice at the table and having a staff team with multiple perspectives and areas of expertise only enhances the work we can do as an office and the positive impact we can have on our campus and for our students,” Weaver continued.
Census Data Shows Increase as Waukesha Population Exceeds 70,000 The population in the city of Waukesha has increased by nearly 6,000 people in the past decade, according to U.S. Census data that was recently released.

The 2000 Census recorded 5,563 people and the 2010 Census recorded 8,529. The black population nearly doubled from 2000 to 2010. There were 831 black people living in the city in the 2000 Census, which increased to 1,660 in 2010. The white population also increased from 2000 to 2010.

Lostetter said reductions to services would impact enrollment and retention of students. Reduction in student numbers could lead to even higher tuition. “We want to protect those things, those are what we call high priority, not that sending you a bill is a low priority, however we can do that electronically.” According to Hastad, the administration works to add services students want while keeping costs low. This school year Carroll greatly expanded its WiFi service and is looking to expand other technologies on campus. “They want to sit on the knee wall and they want to have access to the WiFi,” said Hastad. “And now we’re hearing conversations from students, they’re saying we want to have, has Carroll ever thought about looking at apps to put on phones….and the answer is that we are now starting to look at because the students have asked us to.”
Oppression museum to ‘create equality’ Katelyn Frederking
Staff Writer We often learn about oppression in our history classes, but rarely do we see it as many students did through the exhibit. The oppression museum was set up in the Campus Center March 7 and 8. This museum was set up by several Carroll student organizations including the resident life staff, Q&A, Latin American Student Organization, Black Student Union, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, art and psychology majors, professors and Community Coordinators. Jorge Arreola- Munoz, a member of both Q&A and LASO said, “For Q&A and LASO respectively, our biggest inspirations were Enrique Morones and Kate Bornstein, the two speakers we’ve had this year. We used quotes from both of them in our exhibits. What was our number one reason? To bring more awareness to campus; I think that (being a notso-diverse campus) many people do not realize what many minorities go through and exactly how much others words hurt. The ultimate goal is to create equality.” The goal of the exhibit was to bring these issues to people’s awareness and inspire people to create a difference. Student Natalie Jaeger said, “I thought it was very interesting, and I had no idea that the emotions throughout the muse-
um would go so deep.” The exhibit was thought provoking and sometimes upsetting. Though hard to trav-
el through at parts, in the end it paid off —it inspired students to make a positive change in society.

Admissions expects steady increase for 2011 school year Around 750 freshmen to be enrolled, only slightly higher than this year Kristina Ljujic
Carroll University’s undergraduate enrollment has been slowly increasing with each passing year, and the trend will most likely continue for years to come. According to Carroll’s Vice President of Enrollment Jim Wiseman, approximately 750 students were accepted at the start of the 2010-2011 academic year. Of course, the number decreases slightly when students leave or transfer. Wiseman said that next year’s number should be similar, but with about 20-30 more students being accepted.. These numbers might not seem to be a significant variation but they add up over time. A steady increase in the number of students on campus calls for the increase of other necessities. Frontier Hall, a suite-style
dorm that is scheduled to be complete by the beginning of the fall semester, will provide another housing option to 231 new and existing students. The new hall is similar to Pioneer Hall, with separate bedrooms for each student and a kitchen with a fridge and microwave inside the suite. A few retail outlets will be located on the first floor of the hall, and be accessible to students and members of the Carroll Community. Carroll also recently opened its 55,000-square-feet graduate center, where students seeking master’s degrees in fields such as software engineering and education attend classes. “Graduate students have different needs that undergraduate students have,” said Carroll’s
President Dr. Doug Hastad. “The graduate center provides that for them.” According to Wiseman, several of the graduate programs have filled or are close to being filled. Hastad said that the first physician’s assistant course will begin June 1, and 20 out of 23 seats have been taken. “These students had multiple offers to programs from different schools,” said Wiseman. “Only three decided to turn Carroll’s offer down, but 20 seats filled out of 23 is actually really good.” Other students spend their last two years outside of Carroll, according to Wiseman. In the case of the undergraduate marine sciences program, students attend school at Hawaii Pacific
“We don’t want it to grow so large that it’s hard to walk it.” -- President Hastad University, where the environment better suits the needs of their area of study. One concern students might have about the slowly increasing enrollment is the size of the campus itself. Many Carroll students chose the school for its small, close-knit campus. “We don’t want it to grow so large that it’s hard to walk it,”
said Hastad. The Master Plan consists of various renovations to the campus, including last summer’s renovation of Main Lawn. The next renovation will be of the area located between Shattuck Auditorium, Van Male Fieldhouse and Otteson Theater, and will help students travel through campus better. The Otteson parking lot will also be resurfaced and reorganized, allowing for a few more parking spaces and safer paths for vehicles. However, according to Wiseman, freshmen living in the dorms will not be allowed to have cars on campus next year, in order to make room for commuters and upperclassmen who may have off-campus internships or jobs.

Student, organ donation recipient to kick off Decision: Donation
Editorial Staff “There’s a lot of public confusion about organ donations,” said junior Bree Catarozoli. “The big thing is getting all those questions answered for people.” Catarozoli is partnering with senior Sarah Sandahl to do exactly that. The event is called Decision: Donation. The date of the event, April 7, was chosen for its personal significance to Catarozoli. It marks the anniversary of her own organ transplant. She received a liver from a donor that more than likely saved her life from Wilson’s disease. “I want to share with other people what I know,” she said. In addition to Catarozoli’s experience, there will be a video and two speakers sharing stories. One of the speakers, Jenny Guzdek, is an intern for the Wisconsin Donor Network. She has had several family members encounter a need for donations including her brother and aunt. Guzdek will share her experiences
and offer information on organ donations. Leading up to the event, students can purchase t-shirts advocating organ donations for $6. Shirts can be purchased in the Campus Center through March 29 and can be picked up at the event. “April itself is Donate Life Month,” said Catarozoli. “We wanted to do [the event] early in April so people could get their shirts and wear them throughout the month.” In addition to the speakers and video, there will be a variety of displays with more information and statistics. Attendees will also have the opportunity to register as an organ donator at the event. According to The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, there are nearly 111,000 people waiting for a donor but only about 15,000 donors. Anyone looking for more information or interested in sharing a personal story should contact Catarozoli.
-An average of 18 people die each day from the lack of available organs for transplant. -90% of Americans say they support donation, but only 30% know the essential steps to take to be a donor. -Anyone can be a potential donor regardless of age, race, or medical history.
‘Brand New Brain’ alights the stage Carroll Players devote musical performances to playwright William Finn Josh DeGrasse-Baumann
Editorial Staff The Carroll Players paid homage to William Finn with their March 12 performances of “A Brand New Brain: The Works of William Finn.” The performance was a review of Finn’s work, contacting a selection of songs from several of his plays. “In a review format, there is no storyline,” said Associate Professor of Theatre Arts James Zager, who directed the play. “A review is a collection of pieces tied together on a theme.” Themes can range be any topic, such as love or sports. “This theme happened to be the composer,” Zager said. The nature of these types of performances can make auditions interesting. “We chose specific songs based on our staff,” Zager said. But Zager also had some specific songs in mind. “We picked interesting voices and people who acted during their audition,” said Zager. Auditions became a balance between the finding interesting voices and finding voices that fit certain roles. The benefit of doing a review is the ability to work with what you have. Other groups might do a review of Finn but
have a drastically different collection of songs. “This particular group of songs is specific to what we chose,” Zager said. With all the roles cast, the Players turned their attention to rehearsals. For the most part. “The only thing we battled was a sickness that swept through the cast [the week before production week],” said Zager. “We came really close to having to have a substitution rehearsal … but everybody came back strong.” According to Zager, they had roughly 88 percent capacity for both performances. “We hover around 90 percent capacity,” he said. “I like 90 percent. It’s almost full, but there’s no chance of someone showing up and not being able to get in.” Both performances were well received, based on feedback Zager received. “Many people who didn’t know theatre had an enjoyable time and the people who have gone to a lot of musical theatre don’t know this music,” Zager said.
First date do’s and dont’s Do smile, don’t be awkward and maybe hook up...? Sarah Grannis
Editorial Staff First dates – the most awkward, yet inevitable encounters ever, in my opinion. As someone who’s had her fair share of good and bad (and very bad) first dates, I’m here to give you some advice on what to do and what not to do. Not to do: be late. Personal deal-breaker: showing up late for the first date. And this is coming from the girl who is literally 5 minutes behind the rest of the world most of the time. Hypocritical? Maybe, but I’ve never been late to a first date. This is one of those occasions you really need to make sure you’re on time for (along with Black Friday shopping, graduation, weddings and the birth of your future children). Don’t give the other person a reason to think you’re flakey and don’t care. To do: ask questions. One of the most annoying things on the first date is listening to the other person talk for hours about themselves. If you’re looking to repeat this encounter in (hopefully) less awkward setting later, ask the other person interesting questions. “What are you studying is school?” is boring (who doesn’t answer that question a million times every semester to random
people?), “What do you want to do after you graduate?” sounds better and lets the other person open up to you with their future plans. Not to do: talk about your exes. No one wants to hear how your exboyfriend or girlfriend is a horrible person who ruined your life, stole your cat and refused to fix your flat tire when you were already late to work. Trust me. Wait a while if you really need to go on a rant, if you really need to and it will hopefully by then seem less crazy (no guarantees, sorry). To do: not “that”…or maybe? This is a hotly debated topic. Should you hook up on the first date? Some people say it’s never a good idea, but others say things like that shouldn’t matter – if it happens, it happens. Truthfully, you’re the only person who can decide what you’re comfortable with, and that should be your basis on what is okay and what is not okay regarding all issues of intimacy in relationships. Finally, show up with a smile and a positive attitude. And most importantly, remember that the other person wants to get to know you, so be yourself.
Have break, will travel: Tips for staying safe during spring break Sarah Grannis Editorial Staff
Next week, as spring break descends finally upon the Carroll community, you may be one of thousands of college students headed for a warm and tropical location. Such trips are not only a traditional part of the college experience, but a fun way for students to reward themselves for working hard all year. If you do plan to head out for sunny beaches however, there are a couple things you should keep in mind. Despite being a vacation, there are many risks involved during spring break travels, and some safety tips that you should keep in mind. When you check into your hotel, make sure to make a mental note for the locations of the emergency exits and stairwells/fire escapes are. More than likely, you won’t need to use them, but it’s always a good idea just in case of emergency. Keep all doors and sliding doors (even those leading out to balconies) locked, and never let anyone into your room unless you know them. If someone claims to be hotel maintenance or security, you can always call down to the front desk beforehand and ask if they sent someone up. It’s not unheard of for strang-
ers to pretend to be an employee of the hotel to gain access to your room, so a quick phone call could make all the difference. If you need to use an ATM, travel in groups whenever possible, and always go during daylight if it’s outside. If for some reason you get a strange feeling about a suspicious person or anything, find another ATM. If you plan to drink alcohol, remember to do so safely. Know your limits and pace yourself, drinking water in between drinks whenever possible. Party smart and make sure everyone in your group stays together to prevent dangerous situations.

Real World cast member comes to campus to discuss LGBT bullying Katelyn Frederking Staff Writer
“The Real World: Brooklyn’s” visited Carroll last week to speak on the issue of gay and lesbian bullying. The Shattuck Recital Hall was filled with about twenty or so students eager to listen to the reality star. He began by telling us his childhood, his life story, and his experience on “The Real World.” Sophomore Grace Barsanti said, “I thought it was really cool of him to come from San Diego to here to talk. It’s important to have speakers like him to talk here because Carroll is a really secluded school. He was also really nice and really smart.”
He answered many personal questions regarding his sexuality and his experiences with it. He came to create awareness about not only the gay community, but bullying and HIV as well. The audience was shy at first, but started asking more questions towards the end. Students were lucky enough to talk to him personally after the Q&A, and he was generous enough to take pictures with the audience. Freshman Amelia Lutz said, “I think with everything he’s been through, he still has a really uplifting message and is very positive. He is very inspirational.”

Sixth Annual Waukesha UNAFF Traveling Film Festival Wednesday, March 30, 2011 9:00 a.m. to 11 p.m. UNAFF 2011: POPULATION, GLOBALIZATION, MIGRATION In the Shattuck Auditorium: The Recital Hall: 8:40 AM Delicious Peace Grows in a Ugandan Coffee Bean (Uganda/USA) In the wake of the Idi Amin reign of terror and institutional discrimination, one Ugandan coffee farmer organized a group of Christian, Muslim and Jewish neighbors to challenge historical, economic, and environmenta hurdles by forming a cooperative to enhance peaceful relationships and economic development. 9:30 AM Which Way Home (Mexico/USA) As the United States continues to build a wall between itself and Mexico, Which Way Home shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States. 11:05 AM The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers (USA) The story of what happens when a former Pentagon insider, Daniel Ellsberg, armed only with his conscience and a file cabinet full of classified documents, decides to challenge an "imperial" presidency in order to help end the Vietnam War. 2:40 PM Mrs. Goundo's Daughter (Mali) The story of a young mother's quest to keep her baby daughter healthy and whole. It is also the story of the African tradition of female genital cutting, which dates back thousands of years, and how it affects people's lives in just two of the many places where the practice is being debated today.
In B-25: 11:00 In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee (South Korea/USA) Traversing the landscapes of memory, amnesia and identity, while also uncovering layers of deception in her adoption, this moving and provocative film probes the ethics of international adoptions and reveals the cost of living a lie. 12:20 Gasland (USA) The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the US. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking," or hydraulic fracturing, has unlocked a "Saudi Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? The film is part verité travelogue, part exposé, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown and part showdown. 2:20 The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan (Afghanistan/Greece) As the West pours billions of dollars into the fight against the Taliban in southern Afghanistan, many hundreds of young boys living in extreme poverty are lured off the streets on the promise of a new life away from destitution. The film investigates this illegal practice, the consequences of which are shrouded by a focus on the war. 3:25 Climate Refugees (Bangladesh/China/Tuvalu/USA) A climate refugee is a person displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters. Several organizations like the IPCC, Red Cross and The Christian Monitor estimate between 150 million and 1 billion climate refugees will be displaced within the next four decades, yet not one single international law gives asylum, or even a helping hand to environmental refugees.
6:00 Secrets of the Tribe (Brazil/UK) The field of anthropology goes under the magnifying glass in this fiery investigation of the seminal research on Yanomami Indians. In the 1960s and '70s, a steady stream of anthropologists filed into the Amazon Basin to observe this "virgin" society. Thirty years later, the events surrounding this infiltration have become a scandalous tale of academic ethics and infighting.
5:05 The Desert of Forbidden Art (Russia/USA/Uzbekistan) During the era of Soviet rule artists who stay true to their vision are executed, sent to mental hospitals or to Gulags. Igor Savitsky daringly rescued 40,000 forbidden works by fellow artists and creates a museum in the desert of Uzbekistan, far from the watchful eyes of the KGB.
8:00 Children of Gaza (Palestine/UK) In January 2009 over 1300 Palestinians were killed in Gaza. Around 300 of them children. When the ceasefire was declared, film-maker Jezza Neumann arrived to follow the lives of four children to give a unique insight into the impact of war on vulnerable young minds.

New menus to be in ‘good taste’ Chartwells considers new food options
Luke Bennewitz Editorial Staff
Chartwells is looking to change some of their food options and choices on campus. Several of the changes come directly from student input on the quality of the food and the venues for the food. “Taste, population, and consumers change and we look at the lifestyle of the food service,” said Scott Henning, Chartwells Food Service Director. “We have to look at growth.” Here are a few of the prospective changes that Chartwells is looking at making in the future: Frontier Hall food service: Because of growth of the campus, Chartwells is looking to put a food service option on the first level to accommodate students. “This food option would not be limited to residents but also to the public,” said Henning. “Students would be able to use their meal plans in that venue too.” Service and Hours of Pioneer Hall: Chartwells is looking for input from students with regards to the quality of the service and suggestions for improvements of Pioneer Perk Café. Possible changes to Naked Pear: “Chartwells is taking a closer look at Naked Pear,” said Henning.

We all see them in the course of a day. The people who work at the PIT make it possible for students and faculty to get burgers, ﬂatbreads, and pizzas quickly. It’s hard to get to know someone in the hustle between class and it’s hard for those working at the PIT to take time out of preparing for the next rush. Three PIT employees took a few minutes to let the New Perspective into their world. Lydia Mendez’s favorite meal at the PIT is the sweet potato fries and chicken BLT. Her favorite special is the apple pie smoothie. The hardest part of a day at the PIT for her is the rush after night class from 9-10 pm. She didn’t share any crazy stories from working at the PIT, but said “there’s lots of them.” In her free time, Mendez likes to go to the gym. Karima Bellik feels the hardest part of working at the PIT is Friday and Saturday nights because it is very busy. On a nightly basis, Bellik says 6 pm is the busiest time of the day. Her favorite special is the mango smoothie at the Naked Pear. In her free time, Bellik likes to spend time
with her two daughters. She makes it a point to call them when she is on break. Patty O’Haira said there isn’t a hard part to working at the PIT as long as everyone works together. She says the busiest time at the PIT is from 4 -10 pm. She added that on some night Coyote Jacks can stay busy until close at 11. Her favorite PIT meal is the turkey burger. When she isn’t at work, O’Haira enjoys hobbies, crafts, and spending time with her grandchildren. She is involved in church activities and has recently started following politics because of the protests in Madison. She feels education is very important and said that teachers can have almost as much inﬂuence on children as parents do.
Love of student environment drives Rodriguez to work, class Evihn Vaszily Staff Writer

On any given day it is likely the average on-campus Carroll student will visit the PIT (Pioneer Indoor Terrace), be it for a full meal or simply for a quick snack between classes. At the same time the student interacts each day with the workers behind the scenes of the action, the mysterious hands that deliver the double cheddar burger to his or her hands. There is perhaps as much thought put in this interaction on the part of most students as there is put into getting out of bed each day, as it becomes nothing more than routine. But upon reconsideration, one may begin to wonder: What is it like to be a PIT worker? A good place to start when asking this question is the average day of full time PIT worker and student Miguel Rodriguez. Rodriguez is a senior at Carroll University and an education major. He works primarily for at 2mato, the PIT’s own Italian-style cuisine, and has been working at the PIT since 2005. While the job is primarily food service oriented tasks including prepping, stocking, cashiering, and cleaning, it is of course highly customer service related. A PIT worker comes into contact with hundreds of customers each day. The job also entails prepping for the next shift. Every day, the PIT workers must be ready for the next group of hungry students that will undoubtedly return. PIT workers receive standard payment for on campus jobs. What most students are likely unaware of is that as much as working at
the PIT is a job, it may also count toward academic credit here at Carroll. According to Rodriguez, if working full time for Chartwells, one is given 8 class credits every year. This being the equivalent of taking two standard courses, this credit addition has helped Rodriguez a lot along the way to getting his degree. When asked about the toughest part of working in the PIT, Rodriguez says the hours are what drag the most. Student life being a large commitment in itself, Rodriguez has at many times worked more than thirty seven hours a week, nearly the time-commitment of a full time job. To add to the stress of this demanding schedule, PIT workers are also subject to working late at night and through rough weather conditions. As an example, PIT workers were required to work during the record breaking snow storm in January, even when driving conditions were treacherous. Rodriguez also wishes the job paid a bit more considering the amount of work PIT workers perform. Rodriguez stresses that he does love the job. He likes the environment created in the PIT, and loves the student interaction. While, as anyone who regularly eats there can see, it does get very busy at times, when things are a bit slower he is able to hear customer’s personal stories and gets to know them on a more personal level. Overall, Rodriguez is grateful he’s had the opportunity to be employed as a PIT worker, and recommends the job to all those interested.

Last summer’s release of the hit “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” was Thompson Square’s first big step into the world country music. Husband and wife Keifer and Shawna Thompson took part in writing several of the songs on their band’s self-titled debut album, released Feb. 8. The couple’s country-rock music doesn’t necessarily adhere to the typical view of a husbandand-wife duo, and instead addresses more real topics. Song such as “Let’s Fight” and “If It Takes All Night” take a closer look at tough love and making up, with lyrics like “Words fly like bullets/each one aimed straight for the heart.” On the other hand, other songs such as “I Got You” and the band’s first single “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” are closer to traditional country love songs with tales of young and lasting love, as well as the couple’s real-life relationship. Fun-loving, upbeat songs like “Getaway Car” and “My Kind of Crazy” add a more comical dimension to the album with lyrics like “Would you drive my getaway car?” and “I’d jump out a plane/rob a train/I’m certifiably insane/for you baby.” Of course, like most country albums, there are serious songs, such as the slow-paced “Glass” and the desperate love song “I Don’t Want to Miss You.” The country couple’s vocal pairing of crystal clear and rough-aroundthe-edges makes for a combination that is key to the intensity of the songs. “Thompson Square” is available in stores and on iTunes. For more information on the brand new band and its debut album, visit www.thompsonsquare.com.
Every once in a while, a sappy vampire book pervades my reading list. And thanks to Deborah Harkness, I find that I’m not ashamed to admit it this time. Harkness’ debut novel is about everything under the un-sun: witches, vampires, demons, and secret manuscripts. The text follows professor Diana Bishop, a distant descendent of Salem’s burned witches, as she stumbles (unwillingly) back into magic by an ancient manuscript. The manuscript details the origin of supernatural species and releases an assortment of undead who threaten to cause an interspecies war. Who can she turn to for help but the broodingly handsome vampire Matthew Clairmont? A flirty mix of history and magic, critics are noticing its nod to the academics so prepare for a bit of cocktail knowledge and research-sleuthing to accompany your occult appetite. Don’t be surprised to find references to real people in history (Elias Ashmole) and quotes from literary legends (like Milton). Harkness has said, “I may have written a novel, but I’m still a history professor!” It also includes a curious combination of first-person and omniscient narration which I suspect is to bridge the relationship between the paradoxically secretive vampire and inquisitive professor. I found that narration to work well overall but limiting at times, too. The characters are the main feature for this page turner. Afterall, a strong heroine and attractive, well, main attraction made the story that much better. “A Discovery of Witches” was a wonderfully surprising read that added some desperately needed intelligence to the dim-witted supernatural serials.
The 2011 version of Sony’s baseball franchise,” MLB 11: The Show,” comes with an all new control configuration where everything can be done with the right thumb. The change takes some getting used to, but once you do its great. One thing that didn’t change was the cover athlete, Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer, who is still there. After escaping any sort of cover curse last year it’s hard to understand why he would return. Plus, Sony should have switched it up to keep things interesting. Graphics are a major upgrade over previous years, blowing away other sports games like EA’s Madden franchise. The multiplayer modes fall short. The games go one of two ways. Either it’s a pitchers dual or an absolute slug-fest, there is no in between. “The Show” includes franchise modes as expected in any sports game these days. It’s always fun to run a fantasy draft and see what kind of all-star team can be put together, especially if your hometown team hasn’t won anything in a century or so. In “Road to the Show” mode users can create their own player and work their way up to the big leagues. Unlike in years past, the path to the majors is a bit more daunting. Perseverance will pay off though as when you reach the bigs, your created player’s skills will be more in line with the rest of the league. Despite the repeat cover athlete and hit-or-miss multiplayer mode, “MLB 11: The Show” is worth the $60 retail price. The improved create a player and rock solid graphics may make it worth passing on chasing a perfect game with the 2k franchise.

Somewhere between dusty canteens and rusty spurs, we find an unlikely hero filling rather large cowboy boots. His name is Rango and he is a chameleon in a desert dwellers’ spaghetti western. “Rango” debuted at the top of box office the week of March 4, grossing $38 million. More importantly is how Paramount/Nickelodeon is changing the Pixar-dominated game for animated movies. Deviating from the 3D standard, “Rango” showed viewers how to reconnect with their animations through slick design (from lizard scales to desert hallucinations) and new partnerships. Paramount worked with George Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic for animation and design, its first big-budget digital animation and first project independent from Dream Works. It will be interesting to see where this new relationship leads. The most charming part of the film, which is oriented towards older children and adults, comes from the troupe-like family of voice actors. Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Ned Beatty and Bill Nighy were encouraged to blur the lines between animation and live-action by brandishing ridiculous props and playing off of each other’s lines by director Gore Verbinski. Depp joked at the on-set behavior, calling it “the worst regional theater we could possibly be doing.” If you were ever forced to watch your dad’s western movies as a kid (like me) then you’ll definitely chuckle at the references to some classics here and there. Parody or homage? You be the judge. The inventive actors combined with stunning art direction make “Rango” live up to the tall talkin’ and gun totin’ expectations.

Letter to the editor: End the ‘R’ word What do you think of Carroll’s increase in tuition?
For the first time at Carroll University, Greek Life enacted an awareness event by participating in the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign. This operation originally began with Soeren Palumbo at Notre Dame and Tim Shriver at Yale but now employs college campuses throughout the world looking to join the movement of mutual respect and human dignity. As of press time, 191,478 pledges have been made online - and after the campaign in the Campus Center on March 2, hundreds of students from Carroll University took the pledge as well. Although the word has become a common reference to individuals acting awkward or inept, most people who use the word lack the realization that their
word choice hurts millions of people with intellectual disabilities. By casually using the word to refer to an action as less than ideal, someone with an intellectual disability feels less human as a result. The movement intends to end hatred as a whole and to promote acceptance, respect, and value for all human beings. By recognizing individuals for their abilities over disabilities, conversation can replace the use of the r-word with “respect” for all members of society. To begin building awareness in society (and in colleges in particular), students have taken the pledge to support the elimination of the derogatory use of the r-word from everyday speech and to promote the acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual
disabilities. By thinking before we speak, we can promote unity, acceptance, inclusion and respect for all people. With the enthusiasm and strong dedication of the Greek community – along with support from the rest of the student body, Carroll has rallied and made an effort to reach out to those unaware of the effects of such a word choice. As each individual takes a pledge for change, society comes closer to making the world a more accepting place for all people. If you didn’t get a chance to sign the pledge, or would simply like more information about the cause, please check out: www.r-word.org.
Point Counter-Point: Is BYU’s athlete suspension righteous or ridiculous? Honor Code Kristina Ljujic Editorial Staff
“It’s the price you pay for a good education.” --Jamie Blenner, Sophomore
“I don’t like it, because I have to pay for it myself.” --Julia Schmitz, Sophomore
“I’ll have to work extra hard this summer to pay for it. I’d love to see it go down.” --Jacob Goessel, freshman
With everything in the news lately, honor codes are a hot topic. Brigham Young University (BYU) recently suspended a star athlete for violating their honor code. He admitted to having premarital sex with his girlfriend. He is likely to return next season. Even though it was his decision to take such actions, he did violate the honor code that he signed. Every student that enters BYU signs a code that shows their personal commitment to the school and their values. The honor code at Brigham Young does not come as a surprise. The idea of an honor code seems silly, but to BYU is a
Why should responses different just because you are an athlete? They should not be because you are a student first and foremost and an athlete after all who signed the honor code.
way of life. It tells its students how to live their lives. It may seem crazy that a student-athlete had to be suspended for such actions but when you sign a paper that is held with such high regard then response action should be taken. It is not only in the school’s best interest but also the athlete’s interest. Why should responses differentjust because you are an athlete? They should not be because you are a student first and foremost and an athlete after all who signed the honor code. Based on the high religious values of BYU, an honor code only seems fair. He may not be the only one to have violated it, but he made it public. If BYU were to brush this off, what signal would that send to other students? How would other universities that implement similar codes react to a school not following their own? I respect BYU’s decision to take action because they are following their own honor code and moral values as a university. They are willing to act and even if it costs them games in the end.
Inflamed and inconsistent The story coming from BYU isn’t that they suspended a star player. It’s not that they lost their next game after they suspended him. The big news is that a school is following its honor code. Really? That’s news? This is what is wrong with
The big news is that a school is following its honor code. Really? That’s news? This is what is wrong with the NCAA. the NCAA. Jim Tressel can know that his players are selling their jerseys for tattoos and he gets a two game suspension. His players got five games. The coach who knows about it gets less than the players who are just poor student-athletes. C’mon man!! First off, I do not buy the concept of student-athletes at Division I schools, especially if they are star players. Student-athletes are found in Division II and Division III. They are found at Carroll. Student-athletes at Carroll have to make up their homework when they travel for sports. How many of the players in this months NCAA tournament are going to get a free pass on their term paper, particularly if their team does well. I’m not going to say no one does any work in Division I. However, I will say that for some it is simply a pit stop on the road to the pros. I can see why we have a fascination with the fact that BYU is taking the moral high ground, but that’s what they are supposed to do. It’s not just because they are a religious institution. It’s because they are an institution of higher learning. It shouldn’t be a big deal that a school did what it supposed to. However, people want to argue BYU did a great thing. It is a great thing. It just happens that every other school in the country should have done it too. The different standards schools apply is one thing, academics are different at Harvard then they are at UW-Milwaukee. I am fine with different schools having different standards. I just want all the rules to be enforced, all the time.
Celebrities gone bad, American brains gone bad I’m lucky because I’m graduating, but I feel bad for everyone else that has to pay.” --Tyler Berry, Senior

Lindsay Lohan. Charlie Sheen. Christina Aguilera. What do all these names have in common? They’ve all topped the headlines in recent months with their various scandals; each single handedly dominating the CNN news tickers and front pages with both criticism and defense. Rumors have swirled suggesting drug abuse, alcoholism, mental illness and even just plain poor attitude for each – but the fact remains: we can’t get enough of them. Despite an 8.9 magnitude earthquake hitting Japan last Friday morning, most major news outlets were still preoccupied with the antics of former “Two and a Half Men” star, Charlie Sheen. Sheen, who has gone from starring on a hit a TV show to now starring in a very public and all-tooreal drama in the eyes of the American public, is the classic case of “Celeb Gone Bad.” Once a respected Hollywood lega-
cy, Sheen has become a joke --I’m ready to go “Charlie Sheen” tonight. On a more somber note, Sheen’s behavior has become so bizarre that public drug tests and visits from the LAPD are nothing new. Custody of his twin sons was recently revoked after his estranged wife alleged that Sheen threatened to kill her. Why do we care? Shouldn’t we put our energy towards something more important? Why are we letting Lindsay Lohan’s frequent probation violations take up more of our news feed than the Libyan governmental revolt? How many students on campus right now could name the current leader of that African nation instead of the latest Charlie Sheen rant? Even Christina Aguilera, who first came under fire for butchering the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, has raised some eyebrows in the last week with her arrest for public intoxication in
Los Angeles. Aguilera was rumored at her arrest to be headed to rehab but instead has been rewarded by the “any press is good press theory.” Talk is that she is now considered a candidate to be a judge on Simon Cowell’s next talent competition. Truthfully, our generation won’t be able to overcome our ambivalence towards “legitimate” news until we rid ourselves of these guilty pleasures. Next time you’re in the supermarket checkout line, how about scanning the covers of Time or Newsweek instead of Us Weekly or In Touch? How about watching the evening news briefly while you study at night? Lame? Maybe a little bit, but being able to pipe in on those current events discussions in class is worth it. Most importantly, let’s start taking a stand for our generation and showing that we don’t endorse drug addicted, troubled celebrities as role models.

Special Contribution The East Region is the deepest for talent. The best teams there are Ohio State and North Carolina. Ohio State is probably the best talent wise in the nation but Roy Williams is a better coach than Thad Matta and will lead the Tar Heels to Houston. The West Region finds three strong teams in Duke, UCo-
nn and San Diego State. UConn won five games in five days to win the Big East Tournament. Even with the Blue Devils and Aztecs in their way, this region will be a cakewalk compared to that gauntlet they just faced for the conference. The Southwest Region has Kansas who has been impres-
sive all year. They should have an easy time with this bracket. UNLV is my greatest concern for them. Kansas will beat the tough teams on paper but has trouble with easier teams like Northern Iowa last year and Bucknell in 2005. The Southeast Region is the toughest to pick. I don’t feel
any of these teams could win in a different region. That leaves two options, #1 Pittsburgh and Tom Izzo’s Michigan State. Izzo is great in March but he doesn’t have enough talent this year and Pittsburgh is too battle hardened from the Big East. In the Final Four UConn’s experience from Kemba Walker
will beat North Carolina’s youth. Pittsburgh has had some clunker games during the year. I see that happening against Kansas. In the final UConn’s do or die magic runs out and Bill Self and the Jayhawks win their second title in four years.
Hassell brings ‘one pitch at a time’ mentality to baseball Team prepares to open the 2011 season with annual Fort Meyers trip
Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Editorial Staff
Derek Hassell, in his first year as head coach for the Carroll University baseball team, is looking to bring a new mentality to the team. “Our philosophy
for this year is take it one pitch, one practice at a time,” he said. His team has been practicing since early February and is finally gearing up for their first game of the season. While Hassel is mostly comfortable with the team, he did have one concern. “It’s tough to see how our outfielders are,” he said. “It’s tough to see how they can catch the ball indoors.” Because of snow and otherwise poor weather has mostly prevent the team from practicing outside, making it difficult to utilize flyballs. Coupled with the injury to projected starter Nick Sobrilsky, the lack of outfield practice could put Carroll off to a slow start. A few other injuries have
also hit the Pioneer squad, but two players are notably healthy. Jason Pattengale injured his ankle early in the 2010 Fort Meyers trip and was forced to miss a significant part of the season. “[Pattengale is] probably our best strike thrower on the team,” Hassell said. “We’re excited to have him healthy.” Drew Volkmann also suffered an injury that kept him limited in games, specifically his pitching. “I have [Volkmann] slated to go probably our first or second game,” With both players feeling healthy and ready to throw, the Pioneer pitching staff could be a force to be reckoned with in the Midwest Conference. “They’re two guys that they
couldn’t really rely on last year that we can rely on this year,” said Hassell. The pitching staff will get their first chance against Augustana College March 20 in Fort Myers, Fla. After the eight-game trip to Florida, the Pioneers will take on Dominican University before hosting their first game of 2011 against Cornell College. The Midwest Conference opener against Ripon College is scheduled April 7. Carroll will host Ripon two days later. Carroll will also play a game against Division I UW-Milwaukee April 12 in Milwaukee. They will also play Division II UWParkside May 4. The Midwest Conference Tournament is scheduled for May 14 and 15.

Men’s tennis gets extended break before a long stretch of away meets Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Editorial Staff
After a 1-1 start in March, the Carroll University men’s tennis team continues to look strong heading into spring break. “The team is better than ever,” said senior Seth Pamperin. “We look forward to heading to practice, being with each other and an overall positive attitude every time we hit the courts.” The Pioneers travelled to Grinnell, Iowa, for a dual meet to begin the month. The 9 a.m. matchup against host Grinnell saw Carroll fall 9-0 in straight sets. Pamperin was the closest to winning a game, but Dmitriy Glumov won the first game 6-4 before taking the second game 6-1. John Silseth fell 6-3, 6-3 against Grinnell’s Colin Johnson in the No. 4 singles flight. In doubles play, Pamperin and Matt Zellner faced off against Juan Carlos Perez and Glumov, but lost the match 8-2. Kevin Rasmussen and Frankie Giuffre came closest in the No. 2 flight, but fell 8-4.
Carroll bounced back with a hard-fought win against Central College at noon the same day. The Dutch dominated the top two singles flights, with the closest set being 6-3. Dutch players won the second set in both matches 6-0. Zellner forced a third game in the No. 3 flight, but fell 7-6. The Pioneers took over in the bottom flights. Silseth dominated his match against Kyle Freischlag, winning the No. 4 flight 6-2, 6-1. Matthew Joost was forced into a seventh game in his second set, but eventually came away with the second Pioneer win on the day. Giuffre finished the singles matchups with another win to tie the meet up at 3-3. Pampering and Zellner again partnered up, but fell 8-6 in the No. 1 doubles match. It would be the last Pioneer loss of the day. Silseth and Joost bested Bryn Boswell and Jacob Dreyer 8-4. Giuffre and Cody Porter finished the meet with an 8-6
win in the No. 3 flight. Carroll has been off since March 5. They return to action March 18 when they take on Monmouth College. “We all are very eager to get back to competition,” Pamperin said. “We have struggled with [Monmouth] in the past, but this year we have proven to the conference that we are a force to reckon with.” Monmouth is just one of five teams that the Pioneers will face March 18-21. “I’d say this upcoming weekend … might be exhausting for some of the guys, but I think we have a deep team and the guys on the bottom of the lineup will have to step in for a couple of matches,” Pamperin said. After a 13-day break, Pamperin said the team was ready to get back to work. “This little break from competition makes us hungry to get out there and beat some teams, being 6-3 is a great place to be right now.”
The weather in Clermont, Fla., is expected to be mid- to upper-50s when the Carroll University softball team arrives to begin the 2011 season. Carroll will face off against the Wisconsin Lutheran College warriors March 19 at 1:30 p.m. before taking on Bowdoin College at 4:30 p.m. “[Wisconsin Lutheran] will be good competition, but not too difficult,” said Head Coach Amy Gradecki. “[Bowdoin will] be a big challenge, which is good. … We want to see how we stand up to teams who have winning traditions.” The Lady Pioneers faced off against Wisconsin Lutheran twice in the 2010 season, claiming the frontend of a doubleheader 8-3, but dropping the nightcap 6-2. Carroll will play eight more games in Clermont before returning to Kilgour Field to take on the Warhawks of UW-Whitewater March 30. “The biggest game that we’re looking forward to is our conference opener April 2 against St. Norbert,” said Gradecki. “They won the conference last year and I think we can be competitive with them.” St. Norbert took both games against Carroll in 2009. Kayla Krueger shutout the Lady Pioneers 3-0, holding Carroll to just four hits. Carroll dropped the second game 5-1 Carroll will also compete in the Midwest Conference Crossover Classic April 9 and 10, playing five matches in two days. Illinois College, Lake Forest College and Monmouth College will be Carroll’s first three games of the tournament. Knox College and Grinnell will round out the tournament for the Lady Pioneers April 10. The Midwest Conference Tournament is scheduled for May 6 and 7, with the host
school being the North Division winner, meaning Carroll could host this year. Last season, the Lady Pioneers went 12-19, going 6-7 in the Midwest Conference. “We lost a few games last year that were really close,” Gradecki said. “I trust that this team will be more competitive this year.” Returning to the pitching staff for Carroll are Christine Roggemann and Aimee Ambrose who led the Lady Pioneer
“We want to see how we stand up to teams who have winning traditions.” -- Head Coach Amy Gradecki pitching staff with a combined 11 wins. Roggemann and Ambrose will be joined by Kristy Johnson and Allison Stanke to round the pitching staff. “We have four legitimate pitchers,” said Gradecki. Carroll also boasts a team composed almost entirely of underclassman. Only four of the sixteen Lady Pioneers are upperclassman. There are no seniors on the roster. The rest of the squad is made up of nine freshmen and three sophomores. “Even though we have a lot of freshman who will be on the field, I really feel confident that they are not the types of kids who get rattled,” Gradecki said. “I think they’ll handle the pressure and the stress of college softball really well.”

“The big thing for us is finishing high in [the Midwest Conference],” Andrews said. “We’re hoping we can finish in the top two or three.” Last season, The Pioneers took second in the Midwest Conference Championship. Then-senior Jay Gitlewski shot a 235 over the three-day event to take sixth place individually. Sam Luedtke, currently a junior, scored a 245. “We had a really good fall performance from [Luedtke],” said Head Coach Dave Andrews. “I imagine he’ll continue to lead us.” Luedtke began the non-traditional season with a second place finish at the Marian University Invitational, shooting a 155. He was the lowest scoring Pioneer in all of the fall meets that he played. Andrews also mentioned Blaine Lynch and Taylor Alward as players to look to for a boost. The rest of the line-up, he said, was up for grabs. “We’ve had good practices,” Andrews said. This year, practice includes a simulator that analyzes various aspects of a golfer’s swing including face angle and club head speed. This produces a visualization of the ball flight and allows the team to practice 18 holes virtually. The simulator was received through a donation to the team. The Pioneers will open the spring portion of their season in Galesburg, Ill., for the Prairie Fire Classic March 26. In 2010, Carroll claimed third of thirteen teams at Knox
Lindsay Gruenke extended the indoor track season with an All-American appearance in the NCAA Division III National Championships. Gruenke, who qualified for the tournament after clocking a 57.15 in the 400-meter dash, spent the March 11 weekend in Columbus, Ohio. At last year’s nationals, she finished seventh in the same event, posting a time of 57.73. On the first day of competition, Gruenke posted a 57.59 in the preliminaries to qualify for the 400-meter dash final. Calvin College’s Rachel Boerner won the event with a time of 55.75, but Gruenke clocked in at 57.31, good for sixth place. It was her second
All-American finish in the event. Gruenke and the Carroll University track teams will turn their attention to the outdoor season which is set to begin in April. Carroll will host their annual alumni meet April 2 before officially beginning the season with the Pioneer Invitational April 9. The Midwest Conference Championships are set for May 13 and 14. Last season, both Carroll squads finished second in the Midwest Conference Championships. They also competed in a total of nine NCAA National Championship events, securing four All-American finishes and one national champion.
