PepperJax Grill will open in the College Square area.

PepperJax Grill coming soon KAYLA KROGMAN Staff Writer

A taste of Philadelphia is coming to Cedar Falls this May. PepperJax Grill America’s Best Philly is a new fast-casual restaurant that will serve the Cedar Valley community. “It’s hard to find a place that features Philly cheese steaks in the Midwest,” said Brendan Crowley, a PepperJax Grill partner. PepperJax Grill is owned and operated by Restaurants, Inc., which also owns and operates HuHot Mongolian Grill. Crowley said the HuHot in College Square Mall is doing well and has a great location. He said these points led him to believe PepperJax Grill would be successful in Cedar Falls. “Cedar Falls is a college-driven market and we really look to cater as well as capitalize on that,” said Crowley.

Along with their famous P h i l l i e s, PepperJax Grill serves rice bowls, burritos, nachos and other dishes grilled and prepared in front of the patrons. With over 40 toppings and a signature sauce bar, patrons can customize every dish. “I’d be all for it,” said Bethany Nannenga, freshman elementary education major. “I think Cedar Falls needs to keep bringing in businesses.” According to Crowley, the assemblyline style of serving promotes freshness and allows customers to create their own dishes. He based this on the practices of PepperJax Grills in other locations around the Midwest. “It’s important for us to follow the cities we’re already invested in rather than disregard the successes we’ve had with them,” Crowley said.

Klinghorn means business at UNI RILEY COSGROVE Staff Writer

The new director of the Regional Business Center and Entrepreneur Outreach Paul Klinghorn is bringing both skill and knowledge to UNI. Klinghorn, who grew up in Idaho, earned a Bachelor of Science in finance from Franklin University in Columbus, Ohio, and a Master of Business Administration from Ohio University in Athens.

After earning his master’s, Klinghorn worked at a small accounting firm then ran an information technology business in southern Ohio. “After having to reinvent myself within the business world numerous times, I felt it was time to get back to what my training was, which is in business consultation,” Klinghorn said of his occupational changes. Klinghorn went on to work with other small businesses before he found his current posi-

tion at UNI. “UNI has a history of excellence in doing operational management, and has really pushed the envelope when providing assistance to entrepreneurs by holding different seminars and providing research and materials that are needed by other businesses that help improve the quality and the structure of their business in a meaningful way,” Klinghorn said.

After working with students as a professor, Bass is still adjusting to the responsibilities of a dean, but says she is handling the adjustment with ease. “I miss the daily contact with students, but I am still able to work with students by attending various events around campus, gatherings, socials, and by working with (Northern Iowa Student Government) on certain student issues,” Bass said. “I am working with a variety of students now, so it is a little different.” As dean of the CSBS, Bass may bring new changes, but she

is certain she will be able to guide the CSBS through a smooth transition. “My goals Brenda Bass Dean of CSBS are to continue to provide quality education for all of our students, whether that be helping students gain access to resources, support students with scholarships both within the college and for programs such as study abroad and to make sure our mission fits President (William) Rudd’s goals for a larger university,” Bass said.

Crowley said they are looking into student discounts and coupons but haven’t decided on anything yet. Nannenga said she would like to see more of such things and support for the

UNI community in general. PeppperJax has locations throughout Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota. The new Cedar Falls location will be at 6719 University Ave.

Over spring break, I had the opportunity to travel to Brazil with the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra. We spent the majority of our time in Caxias do Sul rehearsing music alongside members of a local community orchestra. However, we also visited Porto Alegre to play a concert and had a chance to see Panama City and the Panama Canal during a layover from Panama to Brazil. It was my first time visiting a foreign country, and therefore I had no idea what to expect. Now that I am home and have looked back on my experiences, I am beginning to realize that even though our trip only lasted 10 days, I gained a lot of knowledge that students talk about obtaining while studying abroad for much longer periods of time.

I believe people should not discount short excursions to foreign countries during their college career. Everyone knows that studying abroad can help students develop language skills, expand their world view and become more culturally sensitive. But a difference I noticed in myself right away once I got home, and even before then, was my raised confidence levels. This

phenomenon is described in the article “Studying Abroad Benefits College Students” by Christine Sobek for the Daily Herald. “Most students who study overseas describe their time abroad as formative, changing their view of the world, building their confidence and expanding their independence,” Herald said. Another benefit I had not anticipated that is discussed in this article is the development of higher creative thinking skills. I certainly had to learn to think on my feet when faced with situations where I had to let a Portuguese speaker know what I wanted to say without speaking or understanding the language. There was always interesting gestures and it felt more like playing charades than having a conversation. An NPR article titled “Studying Abroad: Is it Really Worth It?” discusses the other major change in myself I have noticed post-Brazil. “Many times it really opens their eyes to a different way of thinking about the world

that we live in and how their actions and their interactions with people from other cultures really have an effect on the world that we live in,” NPR staff wrote. There was something amazing about traveling such a long distance and expecting to experience major culture shock but then feeling completely at home because of one thing I shared with the Brazilians I met: music. Traveling so far only to

meet people playing the same piece of music really made the world seem like a small place. It helped me realize my actions really do have an effect on the world, because there are other people who, although they live far away, are striving toward the same goals. I can only imagine the things I will learn on my next international excursion, and whether it’s for 10 days or 10 weeks, I know I will keep the things I learn with me forever.

Help block the encroachment of predatory lending CHRISTOPHER DANIEL

daniecab @uni.edu

Would you entrust your financial well-being to an industry called fringe banking? That isn’t what they call themselves. They prefer deferred deposit services, more simply, payday lending. Many others, including those who work in finance or economics, call them predatory lenders. Drive up University Avenue from Waterloo toward UNI and you can count at least seven of these businesses, often abutting liquor stores or tobacco outlets. Waterloo City Councilman Pat Morrissey is working to restrict where payday lenders may operate. According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, the proposal would mandate payday lenders not open downtown or in shopping center districts and that they not open within 600 feet of each other, bars or liquor stores. City areas designated as protected uses— schools, churches, public parks and hospitals— would also be forbidden to them. The ordinance, unanimously approved by the Waterloo

ANNE CUSACK/MCT Campus

One of the deferred deposit services, which promotes minimal waiting time for loans as well as cashing tax return checks.

Planning, Programming and Zoning Commission, will be presented for consideration at a city council meeting April 14. Currently, two councilmen dissent, saying there is no evidence that payday loans are harmful. Further, they want members of this industry to have a say. Indeed, members of the industry claim they primarily serve middle-income customers who take out the

rare loan to cover an emergency. However, there’s evidence this industry does harm. A 2011 study by the University of California at Irvine called “Investigating the Social Ecology of Payday Lending” found that cash advance businesses are disproportionately located in low income and minority neighborhoods. For loan amounts of $200-$300,

one can pay 200 percent to 300 percent interest. It’s simple economics; someone sees a market with an unmet desire and meets that desire. In this case, the desire comes from people with restricted access to conventional financial institutions who want that access, hence the epithet predatory lending. By 2008, there were more than 22,000 cash advance locations

originating $27 billion in loan volume annually. As wages continue to stagnate, fringe banking grows and is moving into working and middle class neighborhoods. Despite industry claims, The Center for Responsible Lending reports that less than 2 percent of all payday loans went to borrowers who took just one loan. More than 60 percent of loans went people who took 12 or more loans per year and 24 percent to those with 21 or more loans annually. Frequent use of these lenders can lead to a debt trap in which the borrower must continue borrowing just to pay the last loan and still have money to spend. You may think this has nothing to do with you, but students, a notoriously cashpoor group, are also a target. So far, these businesses are not present near campus. However, they advertise in newspapers and they advertise job positions on the UNI job board. I advise you neither to patronize them for your own good nor work for them for the community’s good. Ames, Des Moines, Clive and West Des Moines have already passed strict ordinances against fringe bankers. It’s time the Cedar Valley joins them.

The event was called I 2 am UNI and its coordinators wanted to offer students a productive outlet to release their aggression against situations where they are judged unfairly. The event was inspired by Harvard University’s installment of I 2 am Harvard, which focused specifically on African American and black micro-aggressions that occurred on their campus a couple months ago. The University of Iowa and other institutions followed Harvard’s example, wanting to protest stereotypes that minorities and individuals face. “We looked at most of the schools that have done this and really took our inspiration from that,” said Sam Bass, senior English major. “Actually, our little group that we got going has really made it our own.” Event coordinators hoped to open the conversation on what micro-aggressions oth-

Anyone who has dealt with micro-aggression could write a message. “I wanted to stop by and support it,” said Hallie Cook, senior English teaching major. Cook’s message read, “No, I’m not becoming a teacher because I’m a female. It’s not ‘settling.’ It’s following my passion for education.

He said he is happy to join the university and the Cedar Valley business communities. “What is neat is that members of the business community here and around the state of Iowa are really supportive, and other people provide assistance to small businesses within the community,” Klinghorn said. “Aside from being a very tight knit community, the Cedar Valley has also shown that it is a very entrepreneurial community.”

Alpha Delta Pi JACOB SHULTZ

Greek Life Writer

Alpha Delta Pi guides about 235,000 women in more than 150 collegiate chapters, according to the national website. The sorority’s principles are scholarship, leadership, sisterhood and service, and its motto is “we live for each other.” “I know that they live for me everyday, and having 78 other women constantly supporting me means the world to me,” said Lynette Bordignon, president of the UNI chapter of Alpha Delta Pi. To build sisterhood, it is important to have a support group behind you. By building a bond stronger than friendship, sisters make lifelong relationships and lasting impressions on each other. “My favorite part of being a member of Alpha Delta Pi is definitely the sisterhood and the bonds I get to make,” said Kate Rohde, junior public relations major. “I have been through some rough times, but my sisters have always been there for me through thick and thin and are a huge support system.” Sisterhood events include dinners at the Alpha Delta Pi house and movie nights. According to members, it is fun catching up with each other at these events, as a lot of them don’t see each other on a daily basis. Alpha Delta Pi also prides itself in the service they provide to the community. ADPi’s philanthropy, Ronald McDonald House Charities, provides a “home away from home” for families shouldering the burdens associated with a child being treated at a nearby hospital. At UNI, Alpha Delta Pi sponsors a “Pi an ADPi” event in the fall and a spaghetti dinner in the spring to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. Sisters also travel to the Ronald McDonald Houses to clean and cook for families in Iowa City and Des Moines.

There are many positions within Alpha Delta Pi, big or small, that give sisters leadership opportunities. “Even if a sister does not have a position within the chapter does not mean she isn’t a leader,” Rohde said. “Many of our sisters are part of organizations on and off campus as well that exemplify leadership.” Overall, being a part of Greek life is rewarding, according to many sisters. Brianna Miller, freshman communications major, said she is proud of her chapter but also appreciates Greek life as a whole. “The fraternity/sorority life community here at UNI has been wonderful,” Miller said. “The saying ‘from the outside looking in you can’t understand it; from the inside looking out you can’t explain it’ truly describes Greek life at UNI.”

Panthers place 3rd at ISU Invite NICK ALVARADO

At the invitational, UNI got a taste for what the Missouri Valley Conference tournament is going to be like, as six of the nine teams competing in the Indiana State Invitational were MVC teams. The only MVC team that finished ahead of the Panthers was Indiana State, which won the tournament. The Panthers will look to keep the momentum going heading into the MVC Tournament, which will kick ofwf April 20 and will run until April 22 in Springfield, Ill. Tee time is 8 a.m.

Sports Writer

The Norther n Iowa women’s golf team took their play up another notch over the weekend, finishing third in the Indiana State Invitational. The Panthers can attribute that to a strong second-day score of 308 that helped them rebound from a score of 319 on day one. This was their best finish at an event all season. They were only one shot behind second place William Woods University and seven shots behind first place Indiana State University. The Panthers have been led by Sarah Boss and Kaylee Benson the entire season, and this latest tournament was no different. Boss and Benson shot a 152 and 155 over the twoday period, respectively. Boss’ 152 granted her a tie for fourth place individually. Benson’s score of 155 earned her a tie for eighth

OPINION

Missouri Valley needs Wichita State Shockers JAKE BEMIS

Sports Editor

Last week, rumors spread rapidly that a Missouri Valley Conference team was planning on leaving for another conference. To most people’s surprise, it wasn’t the Wichita State Shockers. Instead, it was the Missouri State Bears. They had been thinking of leaving the MVC to move to the Sun Belt Conference where they could play Football Bowl Subdivision football and likely make more money. That news no doubt came as a sigh of relief to fans of the Valley. Since Creighton University left for the Big East Conference last season, MVC basketball has not been the same. One team ruled the conference while the other nine did their best to play second fiddle. There was not a single game marked on the Wichita Shockers’ calendar that made people want to tune in. There was no real rivalry that amplified a game’s intensity all season. Instead, WSU coasted to an undefeated regular season and entered the NCAA Tournament as the top seed

in the Midwest region of the bracket. It was considered the toughest bracket out of the four and many thought the Shockers were deservedly playing the toughest schedule to get back to a Final Four. After all, they didn’t play anyone tough all season in the MVC. It was about time they faced a challenging opponent. The Shockers don’t need to hear that every year. They’re good enough to win almost any conference in the country and be in the top three of every conference. It is truly a shame that they’re currently stuck in and disrespected in the MVC. But that can change fast. Two years from now, will WSU still be disrespected in the MVC? Obviously, there are only two possible answers — yes or no. If they stay, things could be better and teams could start getting tougher, but the likelihood is that two years from now they’d still be getting harassed for not playing a tougher schedule. So they follow Creighton’s lead and leave the conference — possibly to the point where they join

Wichita State went 18-0 during conference play this season in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Shockers were defeated by Kentucky in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

the Bluejays in the Big East. Wherever the Shockers go, they start playing tougher, ranked opponents and continue to win. No more disrespect, no more questions about the schedule, yet more of the same results. It’s the ideal situation for WSU. It’s the complete opposite for the Valley. Recently, MVC commissioner Doug Elgin said that the conference would enter-

tain the idea of leaving St. Louis for the annual MVC Tournament if the right bidder came along. If WSU actually was to leave the conference, there may be no bidders. The Shockers are currently the only team in the conference making big money for the other nine schools. They have become the heart and soul of the MVC. Without them, the

Valley becomes a conference that no one but the fans of the teams in it would care about. UNI would likely become the dominant team in the conference if this were to all play out, but even as Panther fans, we cannot root for the Shockers to leave for our own benefit. If WSU leaves, no one in the MVC will truly benefit at all.
