Welcome from President Nook Welcome to the University of Northern Iowa and congratulations on your acceptance to UNI. We are excited that you will be joining the Panther family this year. UNI is committed to helping each student reach their educational, professional and personal life goals. Faculty and staff know that to be successful in your life after UNI, it is important that you learn to set high goals for yourself and then develop a plan for reaching those goals. We will set high expectations for your education and surround you with people to help you reach those expectations so that you will be able to reach your professional and personal life goals. As you work to meet these expectations and reach these goals, you will be supported by faculty, staff and your fellow UNI students. This process of setting and reaching your educational, professional and personal life goals begins at new student orientation. You will meet students, faculty and staff members who

will help you begin to understand what it takes to be successful at the University of Northern Iowa. You will also meet some of the people who will support you in educational, professional and personal development. New student orientation is all about helping you learn to be successful at UNI. You will learn about our academic programs, how to register for classes, where to find academic and social services on campus, about opportunities to get involved in your residence halls and numerous student organizations, as well as about the coolest places to just hang out (my favorite is the Purple and Gold Adirondack chairs near the Campanile). As a student success-focused university, UNI faculty and staff members put the longterm success of our students first. Faculty bring their experiences and expertise to the classroom and supplement their courses with knowledge gained through intensive research and discovery, as well as service and

engagement. You will have opportunities to engage directly with faculty in their research, scholarship, creative work and professional activities. Staff bring their experiences and expertise to the residence halls, Academic Learning Center, academic advising, the Center for Multicultural Education, Wellness and Recreation and many more student support services. These experiences with faculty and staff members help you develop the professional skills and abilities to be professionally successful immediately after graduation, and it all starts with new student orientation. Be prepared to meet new people and make new friends at orientation; it is your chance to show everyone that you are Panther Proud! We look forward to meeting you this summer! Panther Proud,

Welcome from NISG leaders

Dear Panthers,

On behalf of Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG), we would like to welcome you to the University of Northern Iowa. We are proud that you made the decision to see what our campus has to offer you. We hope that through your orientation today, that you will find some places to get involved when you get to campus in a few months. Here is a little bit about us. I (Jacob Levang) am a senior Business Management major from Des Moines, Iowa. I am

involved with a few organizations on campus such as Sigma Phi Epsilon, Business Student Ambassadors, and I was also an RA in Bender the last two years. I grew up in Des Moines and plan on moving back post-graduation to help strengthen the community that raised me. I (Jacob Stites) am a rising senior as well, majoring in Economics. I have been involved in Northern Iowa Student Government since my freshman year at college. I have served as a senator, co-chair, and director of finance. I also grew up

in Des Moines, IA. Levang and I have known each other throughout High School and through playing on the same baseball team together. Thus, the experience of being Vice President with my best friend has been something we have thought of since we were younger. We have had a great time working on initiatives together in the past and look forward to tackling more student issues in this coming school year. Our main objective as your President and Vice President is to provide you with the best experiences possible from the


time you step foot on campus to the time you walk across the stage at graduation.

We consistently work to  See NISG, page 7

Dean of the College of Education says welcome

Welcome freshmen students! I’m excited you have joined the UNI community. As dean of the College of Education, I’m glad to serve with a dynamic group of faculty and staff. Our faculty are committed to student learning in the classroom and beyond. They also are engaged with scholarly and practice-oriented research with a focus on the application of theory to the real-world. What you will experience is

that faculty strive to graduate students who are interested in what an education enables them to be and not just what it prepares them to do. Our staff are also committed to providing consistent, high-quality and appropriate academic advising, mentoring, nurturing and coaching to ensure your academic and personal success. Further, the range of services available at the university are there to help you be success-

ful. We will do all that we can to ensure that you are successful — but you must do your part as well. During your academic studies, you may have the opportunity to take classes in the newly renovated Schindler Education Center, which is designed with new technologies to improve teaching and learning, including a one-stop shop for student services for teacher education majors (i.e. Advising Office, Teacher Education Office &

Department of Teaching for field experience and student teaching). In the College of Education, our undergraduate and graduate students are prepared for careers that range from elementary, middle-level and special education teachers to school psychologists, educational leaders, environmental health specialists, athletic trainers, nonprofit professionals, early childhood education providers, college faculty members, health

education specialists, physical education teachers and beyond. I hope you’ll explore our website to learn more about the College of Education — the departments and their programs, as well as our faculty and staff. I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and wish you a wonderful start to your college experience at UNI! —Gaëtane Jean-Marie, Dean of the College of Education


Welcome from the Dean of CSBS Welcome to the University of Northern Iowa! On behalf of the faculty, staff and returning students

of the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences (CHAS), I invite you to explore the many opportunities in our college.

Welcome from the Dean of CSBS

On behalf of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (CSBS), I want to welcome you to the start of the 2019-20 academic year! CSBS faculty and students focus on studying and solving real-world problems. Whether helping integrate immigrants in Iowa, interpreting the causes of war in Africa, creating effective crime prevention strategies, or understanding how natural disasters impact communities – CSBS believes in empowering its students to make a difference and inspire change. Our college has programs that address family relations and the psychology of personality, the role of gender and race in society, the impact of globalization and the history and politics of every region in the world. CSBS believes that a high quality undergraduate education is key to a lifelong pursuit of knowledge. We provide

our students with the skills to succeed and adapt in an ever-changing market. Not just for a job, but for a successful and fulfilling career. Students learn from faculty who utilize innovative teaching techniques in classrooms equipped with the latest technology. Both undergraduate and graduate students work alongside faculty who conduct worldclass research, funded by government agencies such as the National Science Foundation, NASA, the Department of Justice, and many others. CSBS is also committed to providing opportunities outside of the classroom through internships, field experience and international study abroad. We invite you to explore the people and programs of CSBS! Visit us online at —­Brenda Bass Dean, College of Social & Behavioral Sciences

“Think, Create, Discover.” CHAS invites all students to Think, Create, Discover with us. THINK. Our students present ideas and challenge ideas across our many departments. Although Philosophy and World Religions may be the department most people consider, departments across the college challenge students to think about issues. In Computer Science, students are developing artificial learning and its ramifications. In Mathematics Education, students are considering how elementary age students best learn and think about math. CREATE. Although most people may consider students majoring in Theatre, Music, and Art to be the students who create on campus, all students are invited to create. Music ensembles and theatre

presentations (in both Theatre and Communication Studies) are open to non-majors as well as majors. Students in Languages & Literatures and Communication Studies also are involved in creative activities, such as creative writing, performance studies, and speech and debate. But students across the college are creative in different ways. This past year, students working in the college helped create more environmentally sound practices for lawn care that are now being used by 188 parks and 35 schools. DISCOVER. People often associate the natural sciences, such as astronomy and biology with discovery. Indeed, these are places of discovery. The Tallgrass Prairie Center and the Department of Biology discovered an endangered species of bumble bee on our campus last summer. Students in

Chemistry helped discover how water and carbon flow through the Wind Cave in South Dakota over spring break. But the discovery of knowledge happens in many places across CHAS. Students in Philosophy and World Religions worked closely with members of EMBARC (Ethnic Minorities of Burma Advocacy and Resource Center) to discover English as a new language and ways to prepare to enter the workforce in addition to discovering how to use their majors to build careers. I hope you will find CHAS is a welcoming place to Think, Create, Discover. I invite you to come learn with us! Welcome! — John Fritch, Dean of the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences

Welcome from the Vice President

of Student Affairs Welcome to UNI – we are so excited to have you join our Panther family. UNI has received many positive rankings and recognitions through a variety of sources. We’re proud of these ratings, yet I don’t think they represent the heart and uniqueness of our campus community. Many on our campus call it the UNI Way, or the Northern Iowa Experience. This UNI Experience stems from incredible student involvement. We have almost 280 recognized student organizations. Our campus has an amazingly engaged residential experience; very active student leadership; over 400 student athletes; 85 percent student involvement in campus recreation; and is home to students from six continents. Our campus truly does value inclusivity, equity, and leadership. So it is with pride that I welcome you to this community. So let me share a few of

my lessons that might help you get off to a good start. • We all want to fit in and to find a comfort zone where we feel a part of something. Yet I believe that to truly find your comfort zone and niche it is incredibly important to be yourself. The more we try to fit in, the more we try to be what we think others want us to be. By being our genuine self and finding others who will respect and value that true self will lead to richer friendships and community. It is unfair to yourself to compare what you feel on the inside to what you see on others’ outside. • You have a renewed chance to explore and engage in a meaningful way. Ask yourself what is going to make you happy as well as what will challenge you to grow or expand your horizons. For it is not choosing comfort or growth but rather finding a balance that allows for both. Indeed, our greatest understanding and personal growth often come when we

find the balance between challenge and support. • Keep your mind and door open (yet please lock your door at night or when you leave). • Your job at the start of the year is to say “yes” (as long as it’s not illegal or unhealthy). You can’t have broad perspective until you have broad experiences from which to draw. • Offer to help a friend or better yet a stranger. We all feel better about ourselves when we make our small part of the world a little better. • Smile – it’s a universal language. • UNI is a special place. While you won’t connect with everyone, you will find many who are supportive and respectful. Your true goal is not about independence, but rather interdependence. We each need to take care of ourselves, while utilizing resources and the skills and compassion of others. • Recognize that you’re not alone.

Welcome to UNI. You have chosen a great institution; one that has earned

numerous accolades across the entire university. As a student in the College of

Business Administration (UNIBusiness) you’re part of an elite family of profes-

• Seek help. • Finally, be kind to yourself and others – it is the UNI way. It’s always a great day to be a Panther!

sionals. You will soon rise to the success of thousands who studied before you. My advice to incoming freshmen; treat the next four years as a path of discovery to determine who you are and what kind of professional you want to become. Get involved, study abroad

and try things that are outside of your comfort zone. Doing so will guarantee that you’re prepared, confident and #ReadyForBusiness on day one of your career. —Leslie K. Wilson Dean of the College of Business Administration

We consistently work to support all student endeavors from lobbying at the state capital to funding student organization’s events. The entirety of NISG’s role is to report directly to students while listening to concerns brought forth so we can address them accordingly. NISG is divided into three branches. Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. The Executive Branch is composed of seven positions: President, Vice President, Director of Finance, Director of Governmental Relations, Director of Public Relations, Director of Diversity and Chief of Staff. There are also 14 positions on our Board of Directors that have more specific interest areas. The Legislative Branch consists of 25 Senate seats, with a certain number of seats representing each college. This branch also houses our four committees: Campus Relations, External Relations, Organization and Finance, and Government and Legislative Affairs, the first three of which you can join even if you are not a senator. The Speaker of the Senate leads our Senate meetings every Wednesday

night in the University Room in Maucker Union, to which all branches are invited to tell everyone what their initiatives are looking like for the year. The Judicial Branch has nine Supreme Court Justices, including one Chief Justice, and the Clerk of Court. These positions are all held until the student graduates or forfeits their position. This branch is in place to make sure there are no violations to our constitution and by-laws. They also lead the election commission, monitoring all campaigns to make sure there are no violations. This year, NISG wants to make your experience on campus as beneficial both in and out of the classroom. That is the thing that makes NISG great, we have the chance to hear students voices and take that to administration to have the impact that all students see fit. We hope that you will find your place on campus, and if you need any help finding that place, let us know and we will see how we can help! Welcome to UNI!

Letter from the Executive Editor

spiritual leaders

Spiritual Leaders representing the following:

Welcome, incoming freshmen and transfer students! I am so glad you chose to make the University of Northern Iowa your home. I hope you enjoy your time at UNI and take advantage of some of the great opportunities that the university offers. Study hard, go to lots of events and take lots of photos during this unique journey. Working at the Northern Iowan has played a pivotal role in my experience at UNI. I started off as a photographer during the fall semester of my freshman year, trying to find where I belong. During the spring semester of my sophomore year, I became the Art Director. Through working at the paper, I have attended events that were outside of my comfort zone, but were ultimately fun experiences. The Northern Iowan helped me find my place at UNI, but if journalism isn’t for you, there are plenty of clubs and student organizations that I urge you to explore. One club that I proudly take part of outside of my tireless work at the Northern Iowan is the UNI Film Appreciation Club. I have always taken interest in film and my friend and former Executive Editor Clinton Olsasky invited me to come and check it out. The first film showing that I attended was “The Night of the Hunter” and from then on, I was a regular attendee of the Friday night showings. One particular showing that stands out as a favorite of mine was a showing of Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic film “The Room,” which also happened to fall on my birthday that year. Throwing spoons at a movie screen with a packed audience is a movie-going experience unlike

any other. There is no shortage of things to explore at UNI and in Cedar Falls. See a show at Gallagher Bluedorn with your free student tickets, catch a game or meet and support UNI athletics, visit the UNI Gallery of Art in Kamerick or the UNI Museum in Rod Library. There are tons of parks and trails to explore in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area. Having served as the Art Director at the Northern Iowan for the past three semesters, the one thing I cannot stress enough is take photos! Document your time at UNI while you are still here. This campus has no shortage of beauty throughout and the friendships and relationships that can come out of this institution are more beautiful than words can describe. Take as many photos, videos, Snapchats and Instagram Stories as you can. Your future self will thank you. I know that you may have certain expectations going to your college experience (don’t worry, I had them, too), but I want to tell you that it’s okay if your experience isn’t perfect. I’ve personally experienced some rough times throughout my experience at UNI and I want you to know that it’s okay to take a mental health day and it’s okay to get help. There are options for getting help and people on this campus who are willing to listen to you. It is okay if it takes you longer to graduate or you switch majors. College is a marathon, not a sprint. If you don’t find your place at UNI right away, keep trying. I promise there is a place here for you. I believe that UNI is the perfect size school to have fun and find where you belong. I wish you the best of luck on your journey. Go Cats! - Gabrielle Leitner Executive Editor


Kanopy offers free films for students NICOLE BAXTER Staff Writer

Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime have revolutionized home cinema. Given the convenience and endless options, there is no question as to why the popularity of these sites has only grown — especially among college students. The age of renting DVDs at the local movie store or checking them out at the public library has quickly declined. Rod Library has taken note of the trend and expanded their services as a result. What many students may not know about Rod library is that it offers students an extensive online selection of movies available through streaming — free of charge! What is this magical, free online library of films? Kanopy has over 30,000 movies available to anyone with a university email. With a wide selection of documentaries, foreign films, independent films and other critically acclaimed films, Kanopy offers viewers a unique archive of films not

offered on other streaming sites. With the recent termination of Filmstruck, a former streaming platform offering art house, foreign and classic films, websites like Kanopy are a cinephile’s dream. And the best part is how economical it is. For those who cannot pay the $12.99 monthly Netflix subscription, Kanopy is a great substitute to utilize. According to the Rod Library database description of the site, Kanopy “works directly with filmmakers and film distribution companies to offer thousands of award-winning documentaries, training films and theatrical releases across diverse subjects and disciplines.” In addition to gaining popularity among the student body, faculty also utilize the service by incorporating Kanopy film screenings into their curriculum. Although Rod has been a participating library since 2017, it was announced on April 15 that the service will soon look different. According to Katherine Martin, interim dean of library services, the selection size will decrease start-

UNI Fight Song! “Hail our Panthers, we are ever loyal, Showing our strength and unity. As we rise, we firmly stand behind you, Urge you on to victory. Rah! Rah! Rah! As you lead us on to fame and honor, Fight! Fight! Fight! will be our cry. So, give us a yell, Ho! the purple and the gold, Victory for UNI!”

ing May 11 of this year. “Unfortunately, unlimited access is not a sustainable model here at UNI. Moving to mediated access is being adopted across academic libraries nationally,” read an announcement issued by Martin. “Under the mediated access, [students, faculty and staff will] only see the video titles in our [Rod] Library catalog that we are currently licensing.” The available films will continue to be free; however, the selection will be limited. Martin stated in the April 15 announcement that access to once-available Kanopy films may still be granted upon individual requests. Patrons have the option to file a request form online at Kanopy’s website. However, according to Martin, priority for attaining those film rights will be given to faculty and staff based on how “essential to supporting the curriculum” the film is. Regardless of the diminished array of available films which will be offered after May 11, Kanopy will remain to provide students, faculty and staff with a great archive of cinematic art, history and education.

PEXELS offers those with a university email with a wide selection of documentaries, foreign films, independent films and other films.


Become a Traditions Keeper LEZIGA BARIKOR Staff Writer

Some students may vaguely recall explanations of the Traditions Challenge during their freshman orientation or UNI Now. If not,

here’s your brief recap: The UNI Traditions Challenge, found in book and web form, is a list of “must-dos” on campus to be done before graduation. It is run by the UNI Alumni Association. According to the most


Staff writer Leziga Barikor discusses the Traditions Challenge and reflects on its impact on her time at UNI.

recent edition of the UNI Traditions Challenge book, students who collect photos of themselves and their friends completing the traditions listed in the book can earn a Traditions Challenge lapel pin and/or medallion to wear at commencement. The completion of 25 challenges merits the lapel pin, while the completion of 45 challenges is rewarded with the medallion. You are allowed to use traditions from any of the editions of the Traditions Challenge books and submit 10 traditions of your own making. Now you probably have four years, or more, to work on your Traditions Challenge, so why not shoot for a medallion? Here are a few ways you can start and finish the challenge in one school year, and some of the things I did to become a spring 2019 Traditions Keeper. Start early. Before my freshman year even started, I had a phenomenal orientation guide who not only radiated school spirit, but was the actual embodiment of school spirit

— it was later revealed that she was UNI’s mascot, TK, during her college years. I credit her passion for UNI for inspiring my freshman self to start collecting photos for my Traditions Challenge.

I’m sure college won’t be the only peak of your life, but while you’re here, try and appreciate these soonto-be “good old days.” It’ll never be quite the same again. LEZIGA BARIKOR

NI staff writer & graduating senior

Pictures from situations like freshman or transfer orientation, eating in the dining center for the first time or living in the dorms all work for the challenge. A good way to get bonus traditions is to take photos in the academic buildings you’ll be in and out of for the next few years. In many ways,

the things that become mundane after a few months of college are also the things that mark these years as special, and you might want to remember some of them more than you realize now. Get involved. Another easy way to become a Traditions Keeper in no time is to join or start a student organization. Through no bias of my own, I would recommend the Northern Iowan, which is both a paid position and can be subbed into an academic course for majors in the Communication Department. Working for the newspaper is how I encountered many new experiences. I attended tons of events, from the Homecoming kickoff to guest lectures. From all the friends I made at the paper, I have pictures of doing things together like exploring College Hill. Many of my photos involved me with the NI staff, so thank you all for the great memories.  See TRADITIONS, page 11

Coping with mental health in college ANNA FLANDERS Staff Writer

Between classes, new relationships, a new city, work schedules and campus involvement, college can be an extremely trying time for students, especially when it comes to mental health. According to Active Minds, 39 percent of college students experience a significant mental health problem. When transitioning to life as a college student, it’s important to be educated about mental health coping mechanisms as well as the available campus resources. “There’s a lot of changes happening, and the support systems that [freshmen] have had for so long aren’t as prevalent in their lives or they don’t have them as much,” said Nicole Goodman, a junior majoring in English teaching with minors in mental health and TESOL. “Then, as they’re trying to adjust and figure things out, they kind of have [anxiety and depression].” Goodman says she commonly witnesses anxiety and depression among her peers and her residents through her job as a resident assistant

Get help from friends. I’ve made so many lifelong best friends at UNI, and each of them have made a guest appearance in my Traditions Challenge collection. I’d like to give a special shoutout to my best friend Breeana DeVos, who embarked on wacky journeys with me to get photos during our senior year. Together, we hopped into a Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG) meeting to make a student announcement, which typically happens during the first 10 minutes of their meetings. We announced that we needed a photo with them, which we got before running off to avoid a parking ticket. I definitely couldn’t have done that alone.NISG meetings are Wednesdays at 8 p.m. if you would like to plan a photo-anddash, too. Which leads me to my final suggestion…

(RA). She believes that finding a strong support system early on and utilizing it often is one of the best ways college students can help their mental health. “It’s different from person to person to find those support systems,” Goodman said. “What I’ve done with my residents is just sit down and kind of evaluate, like, who is important in your life? And we just kind of have a conversation, create lists, and most of the time they’re support systems they already have; they just haven’t thought about them in that way.” Sarah Rasing is another UNI RA with a passion for mental health. She personally recommends creating routine as a way of maintaining good mental health. She thinks it’s important for students to make sure they are on a consistent sleep cycle and schedule time to relax in the midst of their hectic schedules. “Stay away from those negative coping mechanisms,” said Rasing, a junior majoring in English with a mental health minor. “Take a look at how you’re eating, what you’re eating. Make sure that you’re eating

Let it happen. For all the Traditions you’ll make your own, I think they’ll come naturally from spending time on campus or with your new UNI friends. One of my favorite photos simply depicts my friends and I hanging out in Lawther Field. It was a uniquely UNI experience and a great memory to document. In many ways, the Traditions Challenge can push you to try new things you might not have otherwise. Ultimately, the process of collecting images of events, people and places from your UNI experience creates a time capsule for these years. To quote one of my favorite shows “The Office,” “I wish there was a way to know you’re in ‘the good old days’ before you’ve actually left them.” I’m sure college won’t be the only peak of your life, but while you’re here, try and appreciate these soon-to-be “good old days.” It’ll never be quite the same again.

UNI offers several resources for students concerned about mental health, including the Counseling Center, wellness coaching and student organizations such as Active Minds and To Write Love on Her Arms.

properly and stay away from drinking. Especially if you are under 21, that’s just not allowed. But if you’re over 21 and you’re really struggling, stay away from drinking. Try that.” Both Goodman and Rasing strongly recommend the UNI Counseling Center, which is located inside the Student Health Center.

Counseling sessions are free to all students, as the service is included in the Mandatory Health Fee. While the center is open, there is a counselor on call for walk-ins. When the center is closed, students can call the after-hours crisis line at (319) 273-2676. The Statewide Crisis Line is 1-800-332-4224, and the

Check it out: Rod goes beyond books ELIZABETH KELSEY

Looking for an umbrella? How about a sewing machine? Or do you just want to challenge your roommates in an epic game of Monopoly? Head to the Rod Library. The library is one of the most well-known buildings on campus, especially during the late nights of finals week. But even when students aren’t cramming for tests and writing papers, the library offers plenty of resources that are well worth checking out. Books are what makes a library, of course, and Rod has plenty of those: 1.2 million volumes, to be exact. But the books are just the tip of the iceberg. Starting at the library’s circulation desk on the main floor, Library Services offers a vast array of items that students can check out, whether for use in the library or to be taken home. “We have Android and

iPhone chargers, all types of computer chargers,” said Dre Presswood, circulation desk employee and a sophomore environmental science major. “We have projectors, portable batteries, headphones, SD card readers, all types of calculators, from graphing to business.” Beyond technolog y items, Presswood said, library visitors can check out more unusual items, such as stethoscopes and microscopes, art supplies and even umbrellas and bicycles. “And there’s so much more,” he said with a laugh. Presswood thinks the most underappreciated item is the optical driver, which allows students to play DVDs on personal computers without a CD compartment. “It’s really nice, and you get that for four days,” he said. “I’m sure that would get checked out more if people knew about it.” The library has many hidden secrets. On the


INFORMATION ONE IN THE CHAMBER What happens when a tragic, yet preventable event shatters a family? Does guilt stare back in the mirror? Do family behaviors change? Is a moment in time erased? Or does life move forward one messy step at a time? The worst days often seem to start like any other normal day, but in Marja-Lewis Ryan’s, One in the Chamber, this day is not a normal day.

YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU There’s nobody like the loving but bizarre Sycamore family in You Can’t Take It With You. Set in 1936 in New York City, the Sycamore’s zany little kingdom is comprised of terrible playwrights, Russians, a patriarch who collects snakes and avoids the IRS, and a sister who dreams of becoming a ballerina (even though she has two left feet.) But when young, well-adjusted Alice becomes engaged to her company’s VP Tony Kirby, the Sycamore clan must straighten up when Alice invites his high society parents to dinner. When the Kirbys arrive on the wrong night, and upon seeing Alice’s family in all of its crazy glory, fireworks ensue. George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s timeless Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy reminds us that “normal” is relative.

third floor, for example, the Youth Collection hides a spacious room, tucked away in the corner, where the spreading limbs of an artificial tree offer “shade” to students who take advantage of its comfortable bean bag chairs. The Fine and Performing Arts collection on the fourth floor allows students to check out CDs, DVDs and even records of famous music and movies, from Beethoven to the Beatles. On the first floor, the UNI Museum displays cultural artifacts and rotating exhibits. Currently on display is “Cultural Impressions: Identities Molded in Clay,” open through July 20, 2019. Students can take a study break and view the exhibit’s ceramics, Native American artifacts, and the recently restored mastodon tusk discovered in Hampton, Iowa, in the 1930s. While you’re on that study break, make sure you have some snacks to fuel your brain. Students can

CABARET The year is 1929, the place - Berlin. Willkommen, bienevene, the Kit Kat Club. Outside the Third Reich is slowly rising, but inside, life is beautiful.

ROMEO AND JULIET “Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love…” Two star-crossed youths meet, fall for each other and meet their tragic ends over the course of three hot, violent days. Full of gorgeous poetry and devastating ferocity, Shakespeare’s timeless story of the dazzling beauty of love and the terrible power of hate comes alive in a bare-bones production where the extraordinary language of the text takes precedence.

grab a treat at the Book Bistro, the café on the west side of the library’s main floor. The Book Bistro offers wraps, salads, pastries and a variety of coffees and teas, but is best known for its famous soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Book Bistro employees McKenzley Darsidan, a junior criminology major, and Amber Des Jardins, a sophomore accounting major, recommend the mozzarella and pesto grilled

cheese, the ricotta garlic and Brad’s all-American. “I’d say those are the top three, for sure,” Darsidan said. Once you’ve picked up your grilled cheese, take a few steps to the right of the Book Bistro, and you’ll encounter the library’s collection of board games, available for use in the library or to check out for up to one week.

“It wasn’t until my freshman year [of college] when I was placed in a negative relationship that really impacted my mental health that I sought out counseling resources,” Rasing said. “I started to talk about it and open up and find that support system [. . .] and I just learned. I became more educated. I did those programs. I did those things, and now I’m in a place where mental health is just this huge thing that I advocate for.” Another UNI resource for mental health is wellness coaching, which is available through Student Wellness Services and is also located in the Student Health Center. “It’s a lot of goal-setting and, like, what do you want to see and how are you going to accomplish that?” Goodman said. “For me, it was like a way of holding myself accountable, like, I do want to reach these things and now there’s somebody else helping me.” UNI also regularly offers Question Persuade Refer (QPR), which is a suicide prevention training program. Rasing believes that education such as QPR is a highly beneficial way to help not only people struggling with mental health problems, but also people who want to help their friends who are struggling. Another one of Rasing’s recommendations is being

physically present for friends seeking mental health treatment. She suggests helping friends call the Counseling Center, walking with friends to the Counseling Center and sitting in the waiting room while friends are in a counseling session. Rasing also encourages students to get involved with student organizations that have a mental health focus. UNI has chapters of the national student groups To Write Love on Her Arms and Active Minds. There is also a Director of Mental Health position in Northern Iowa Student Government, which Rasing currently holds. When looking back at her own freshman year, Goodman wishes she would have not held herself to such an impossibly high standard. She admits she struggles with spreading herself too thin and wishes she could go back and tell herself it’s okay not to be perfect. “Every negative thing that’s happened at my time at UNI — it’s been bad in the moment. It sucks. It’s terrible. But I look back and I’m like, ‘I’m such a different person because of it and in such a positive way’,” Goodman said. “I’ve grown and gained so much from it. In the moment, I could not convince myself of that, like, ‘It’s going to get better.’ Like, ‘No, it’s not’.” But looking back, it’s like I’m so different and it’s because of that.”


Why you should join a student org COLBY WEBER Staff Writer

With over 250 organizations on campus, UNI offers several opportunities for students to get involved. Regardless of a student’s interests, there is most likely an organization to fit their needs — even if there’s isn’t, students have the opportunity to start their own organization. Some students may wonder why joining a student organization would be beneficial to them. From student government to Greek life and college ministries, there are several ways that getting involved can benefit students. “The first thing I would say regarding student organizations are all of the connections you’re going to make,” said sophomore communications major Tyler Hospodarsky. Hospodarsky is involved in Student Admissions Ambassadors and Connecting Alumni to Students. “Both are pretty active organizations here on campus,” he said. “As soon as you join, you have like 50 or 60 really good friends, close companions and people that you can go to for support. They’re

not just people, they’re really smart people who are involved in the campus.” In addition to the relationships he has built, Hospodarsky feels that being in these organizations sparked personal growth. He is currently serving in an executive position which has helped him to develop leadership abilities and people skills, as well as expand upon some of the knowledge that he already had. For some students like sophomore anthropology major Aiden Fogarty, student organizations provide a place where he can escape from everyday pressures. “I like using clubs to relax from the stress of school stuff,” Fogarty said. “Being in Anime Club and Board Game Club allows me to relax from the stresses of school and be with people I know.” While student organizations can provide the chance to make connections or simply relax, they can also be used as a means to advance your career. Blair Hines is a junior digital media journalism major who previously volunteered for Gender and Sexuality Services at UNI and currently works as the news

director for the 94.5 KULT radio station. “I think it’s important for other experiences outside of the classroom and anything that you’re interested in,” Hines said. “It may be a part of your profession. If you’re a freshman on campus or a transfer student, it’s important to make those connections.” Hines hopes to use the experience from their campus involvement in future career endeavors. Many organizations also allow students to give back to their community through working with non-profit organizations or doing community service. Student organizations are also a good place to interact with diverse audiences and learn new SOFIA LEGASPI/Northern Iowan ideas. Students at the University of Northern Iowa can choose from over 250 student Those interested organizations of various kinds. If there is nothing that piques their interest, students in joining an on-cam- also have the option of starting their own organization. pus club or organization can find more infor- a more up-close look at what Organization Fair or directly mation on the Campus Life an organization may be like, contact a club via email or page of UNI’s website.

7 sweet study spots on campus SOFIA LEGASPI

Campus Life Editor

As the fall semester quickly approaches, so does the season of studying. While the library is an excellent place for both quiet and collaborative work, and while your dorm room may contain all of your favorite snacks, college is the time to think outside the box. Take advantage of the many delightful and unique spaces on campus to study. As a starting point, a few of the endless possibilities are listed below. Happy studying! 1) Adirondack chairs You can’t call yourself a UNI student without having sat in a purple or gold adirondack at least once. These comfy chairs can be found scattered across central campus. Move one to a nice shady spot and enjoy a good book in the company of one of UNI’s famous squirrels. 2) Botanical Center Seating areas are scarce in the Botanical Center, but they’re worth it. Flowers, succulents and plants of all kinds flourish in this greenhouse that feels tropical all year long. You might even meet Columbo and Chiquita, one of the two parrots who live in the building. The Botanical Center is open to the public on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. 3) Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center Climb to the second floor of the GBPAC and enjoy gorgeous views of the building’s airy lobby, where two-storied floor-to-ceiling windows

offer ample natural light. As long as there are no ongoing shows, it’s a relatively quiet place.

4) Innovative Teaching and Technology Center The ITTC, formerly known as the East Gymnasium, was constructed in 1903 with a swimming pool addition in 1938, according to the Rod Library University Archives. Today, it houses classrooms, offices and interesting study spaces. Plus, you can tell your friends that you’ve studied in a swimming pool. 5) Maucker Union rooftop Tables, benches and amphitheaters — oh my! The roof of the Maucker Union, built in 1967, features study areas of all kinds. Enjoy a lovely autumn or spring (or winter!) day in this central location on campus. 6) Tree in Rod Library Do your homework under the branches of an sprawling indoor oak tree Sure, the tree may not be real, but this room is a lovely spot to get your green fix when it’s the dead of winter and negative 50 degrees outside. The tree is located by the Youth Collection on the third floor of the Rod Library. 7) Schindler Education Center A hub for education majors — although all majors are welcome — Schindler underwent a full remodel completed in 2017. Now, students can hunker down in a booth, sink into on a couch or relax on the steps in the center of the building. Grab a grain bowl or a cup of coffee from Schindigs while you’re at it.

A guide to local restaurants GABRIELLE LEITNER/Northern Iowan

One of the best things about attending UNI is becoming a part of the Cedar Falls community. Trying out Cedar Falls’ diverse local restaurants is a must. No matter the scenario, this guide provides just a taste of the culinary possibilities available nearby. LATE NIGHT Whether you’ve been up late studying at Rod Library or dancing with friends at Sharky’s, it is inevitable that you will get some late-night cravings during your time at UNI. The Domino’s Pizza on College Hill or the Panchero’s Mexican Grill on University Ave are staples of Cedar Falls’ late-night repertoire, but there are also some great local businesses that sup-

port midnight snacking. Great Wall Chinese Restaurant (2125 College St) is open until 11 p.m. from Sundays to Wednesdays and until 2:30 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Great Wall boasts an extensive menu for dining, takeout or delivery. Try their yummy steamed dumplings or any of their all-day special combos to get some delicious Chinese food at affordable prices. Tony’s Pizzeria (407 Main

St) has kitchen hours until 9 p.m. from Sundays to Thursdays and until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, but offers pizza by the slice from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. This downtown spot boasts its commitment to buying fresh, local ingredients and offers a wide variety of appetizing toppings on their thin-crust, New York style or gluten-free crust pies.  See RESTAURANTS, page 15

Oh My Grill (2020 College St) just opened this past April on College Hill; its hours are from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m., seven days a week. OMG serves savory burgers, fries, sides, shakes and more; all prepared to Halal standards. This place is sure to become a major player in the Cedar Falls latenight food game this upcoming school year. DATE NIGHT Trying to secure that special someone to Campanile with this homecoming? Impress them by taking them to a local eatery, complete with great food and a wonderful ambience to set the mood for a spectacular evening. Figaro Figaro (419 Main St) is a fine Italian restaurant located in the heart of downtown Cedar Falls.

Their menu features pasta made from scratch, gourmet meat entrees, delectable vegan options and more.

If arts and crafts are more your speed, Rod has you covered as well. In the Makerspace on the main floor, students can find crafting equipment for every occasion, from sewing machines, needles and thread to paint, glitter and modelling clay. The Makerspace also has several STEM-themed kits, including Legos and electronics and circuitry sets. During the school year, Student Wellness Services hosts weekly de-stress activities in the Makerspace through the Wellness in Rod program on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each “Wellness Wednesday” is focused on one specific wellness topic — such as sleep, alcohol or nutrition — while “Take Time Thursdays” offer more general “destress” activities, according to Emma Alman, a public health major who is a Student Wellness Ambassador. “We have multiple activities on both Wednesday and Thursdays for destressing, like puzzles, coloring, bracelet makings and essential oils, but on Thursdays we also have a specific activity for destressing,” Alman said. “These have included gratitude letters, glit-

dining experience that is sure to make a great impression, especially for Japanese food-lovers. For dates on a tighter budget, try Ginger Thai Cuisine (111 W 2nd St) for an intimate, spice-filled dinner or Wilbo Burgers & Brats (118 Main St) for some fun, savory classics. BRUNCH Quality breakfast food makes for a great start to the day. For occasions where you’re looking to diversify from the UNI dining centers’ options, try a local diner to get your fix. J’s Homestyle Cooking (1724 W 31st St) is located in close proximity to campus and serves their large menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner options all day. They offer all the breakfast/brunch standards: biscuits and gravy, french toast, pancakes, waffles, omelettes and more. Gravy’s Diner (4129 University Ave) is a bit further away from UNI, but its classic 50’s diner aesthetic is wellworth the short drive. Their simple, “All-American” menu features quality breakfast staples at an affordable price. VISITORS When your parents come to visit, you’ll want to find a great place to eat that the whole family will enjoy. There are a wide range of restaurants that will do the job, but the following spots happen to be local favorites. Mulligan’s Brick Oven Grill and Pub (205 E 18th St) has an extensive, well-loved menu of classic starters, burgter jars, self-care kits and inspirational rocks.” Alman encourages all UNI students to stop by and check out the destress activities, which are completely free. If homework and classes have got you stressing, the library offers incredible academic resources for students as well. For starters, there are the Rod reference librarians, with whom students can schedule private consultations. Each of the eight trained librarians specializes in a certain academic area, meaning that students can get specific research help tailored directly to their major or field of study. The Learning Center, on the library’s main floor, is another great resource for students seeking academic assistance. Student tutors and academic coaches, certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), are ready to help students with math, science, writing and general academic skills. Appointments and walk-in hours are available. In short, Rod Library has a bit of everything, from snacks to tech to cozy, quiet nooks. Don’t judge this book by its cover: take some time to explore Rod Library today. You might just discover your new favorite place here at UNI.

Mirch Masala Grill (911 W 23rd St) is open late, delivers and serves up some of the best spicy foods in town. Try a Mango Lassi drink to wash down a decadent curry or barbecued meat dish, and be sure to pair your meal with some fresh naan. TO TRY WITH NEW FRIENDS Food brings people together. And what better way to bond with your new college friends than over a delicious meal? Amigos Mexican Restaurant (5809 University Ave) offers scrumptious renditions of standard sit-down Mexican place fare at great prices. Enjoy your favorites,

and end the meal with a round of sweet sopapillas.

Its whimsical, relaxed atmosphere is a great place to stuff your face before spending a night on the town or binge-watching Netflix with pals. Finally, for nights when you don’t feel like going out at all, Cedar Valley Food Runner delivers for many chain and local restaurants in both Cedar Falls and Waterloo.
