Helping refugees reach the American dream CASSIDY NOBLE Staff Writer

Every Saturday at First Methodist Church in Waterloo, UNI students tutor Burmese refugees one-on-one in English as part of UNI RISE. “We were concerned that they wanted to learn English but there is not very many resources in the community for it,” said Jordan Peterson, founder of UNI RISE. The overall goal of the group is to help provide students with enough knowledge so they pass the citizenship test – a $680 test that allows people to become American citizens – on the first try. “We are one of two programs that offer any sort of

English teaching to the refugee population in Waterloo,” said Alicia Soppe, a tutor at UNI RISE. “We are the only one that offers one-on-one tutoring and we also provide child care for the mentor and mentee.” The other program is at Hawkeye Community College and it provides tutoring in a group setting. There are approximately 1,500 Burmese living in the Waterloo community and with the help of UNI RISE, over 60 people have learned English since the program began in October 2013. Tutors start at the beginning with letters and words and works all the way to sentence structure and correct grammar.  See REFUGEES, page 4

Students from the swim team compete in the Times trivia event held Friday.

A sense of friendly competition helped bridge the gap between groups like the University of Northern Iowa’s history department and the football team Friday night during The New York Times trivia night. The event aimed to bring together groups from around campus and help foster better connections between them. “You had the basketball team sitting with the accounting club,” President William Ruud said. “You tell me that that doesn’t foster better relationships among groups.” There were three trivia rounds, and as time whittled

down the competition, two teams remained by the end: the history department and the accounting club. After correctly answering the night’s tie-breaker question, the accounting club won $125 in prize money, as well as a championship trophy. “I’m shocked. We got lucky,” said Joel Pike, assistant accounting professor. “It was a lot of fun. It was a nice chance to get involved.” The New York Times provided the prize money and $75 was also given to the second place team and $50 to third place. Even the losing teams said the night was successful.

While Iowa’s agriculture helps sustain life around the country, it has also had a hand in ravishing life under the sea. Mohammad Iqbal, professor of earth science, and his UNI research assistant, Sushil Tuladhar, are investigating the Cedar River to find out how local agricultural practices are affecting the water in the state and around the country, mainly the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico.

“Basically, we are working on how we can keep Iowa’s water clean of excess nutrients as well as help reduce the problem of Gulf hypoxia,” Iqbal said. Many of Iowa’s rivers have contributed to a zone of hypoxia, an area of the water that cannot support marine life in its oxygen deficient conditions in the Gulf of Mexico, according to Iqbal. The investigation will attempt to curb the toxic effects of Iowa’s excess of nutrients in its rivers, mainly nitrogen and phosphorous, Tuladhar said. Iqbal and his students have spent years investigating agricultural impacts on Iowa’s water. However, the new project, delegated by the Iowa Nutrient Research Center, was

only recently approved. “Over many decades of agricultural fertilization of fields in Iowa, eutrophication of our surface water bodies has become a serious problem, especially in certain parts of the state,” Iqbal said. “These impacted water bodies cannot support their designated uses as recreational water bodies.” UNI’s group is working to pinpoint areas of high nutrient flux. While Iowa’s farms contribute to it, the amount varies, Igbal said. The group has already begun its research, but the their abilities are limited because of the frozen ground. Sampling may begin again in March, Iqbal said. As of now, the group consists of Iqbal and Tuladhar, but Tuladhar is hoping to bring a couple more students in once field testing begins.

“I think they would have a great opportunity to learn the field experience as well as understand the nutrient scenario in Iowa’s surface water,” Tuladhar said. “This would be hands-on learning experience for them beyond the classroom.” Iqbal and Tuladhar will present their data and plans for future research to the Iowa Water Conference at Iowa State University. The meeting will be held March 3 and 4.

“Great event. I was surprised at the diverse amount of people we had here,” said Michael Kelly of the Northern Iowa Democrats team. “We got paired up with the football team, which was a lot of fun. I’ve never gotten to talk to the football team, so that was cool.” Co-directers Chris Miller,

senior accounting major, Stef McGraw, senior philosophy major, and Corey Cooling, senior physics major, felt the event was successful in bringing together diverse groups. McGraw said it was both “fun and educational.” Miller said when he came to UNI, he discovered the school was a “suitcase” college, and student government provided groups with funds to create

weekend events to keep students on campus. “We used those funds and everything about this event was created for students and organized by students,” Miller said. Cooling said he is confident trivia night will be continued in future years. “Rest assured, people should expect more trivia nights in the future,” Cooling said.

NISG candidates receive support

Jacinda Ruggles/Northern Iowan

Presidential and vice presidential candidates Kevin Gartman and Paul Anderson (left) debate alongside presidential and vice presidential candidates Coorey Cooling and Eric Boisen.

With the opening of UNI’s LGBT* Center on Dec. 10 of last year, we began a conversation about what it means to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or any number of other spectrum identities as a student at UNI. The center is a bold and necessary first step towards the safety and success of every queer student at UNI, and it will strengthen the

They understand that diversity is a complex issue involving a number of identities. entire university community in its contribution to diversity and inclusion.

There is much progress yet to be made to fully support LGBT* students, however, and that is why I am endorsing Corey and Eric for NISG president and vice president. They understand the strong and urgent need for genderneutral housing and restrooms, and have pledged their support to the cause so that every student may be safe and comfortable in

the spaces in which they live and do their business. They understand that diversity is a complex issue involving a number of identities and they understand the part they may play as advocates and allies for communities like my own. If you are an LGBT* student, or an ally to our community, I encourage you to vote for Corey and Eric on Feb. 25

and 26 on MyUNIverse. I have been involved in the LGBT community at UNI for almost four years now, and I trust that they will work with our community to continue moving forward toward making our entire campus a truly safe space. -Daye Pope Senior political communication major and former UNI Proud president

NISG plays an important role, from handling student fees to lobbying for students to faculty, administrators and even

state legislators. So, who becomes the president and vice president of NISG is indeed an important question.

I am supporting Corey and Eric for this year’s election. As a part of this year’s NISG Senate, I not only believe this ticket has the balance between the understanding of the functions and the operations of NISG, but also their experience with the student body and the ideas they bring on the table. Corey, as election commissioner, was able to successfully conduct the NISG elections for 2012-13 where

Eric has been a phenomenal senator for College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Both of them have invested their time in NISG from their freshman year and that gives me the confidence that they will be able to formulate their platform into action. Given their “7 years of combined experiences with NISG” I can depend on them. I’m sure you have heard why they are running and what makes them qualified.

If you have not or want further detail please visit their election site www. This is an important time of the year and they need your support to make your experience at UNI even better. I am voting for them because I believe that they can deliver what they are promising. -Parash Upreti, Former senator of the College of Business Administration.

It has been my honor to work with both of them over the past year and a half and I don’t know any two students that would make a better team than these outstanding campus leaders. NISG experiences are critical for someone to be successful in these roles. Corey and Eric are the only

team running that has NISG experience; the experience I believe is necessary to have a successful term. They have done their part reaching out to share their story.

Awareness week to educate students RILEY COSGROVE Staff Writer

Students and faculty at UNI aim to bring life-threatening health issues into the spotlight though Eating Disorder Awareness Week, Feb. 24-28. Joan Thompson, health educator, is the organizer of the events and has been in charge of it for over 25 years. “I feel very passionate about this event and want to educate people about eating disorders, whether they are struggling with one or know someone who is struggling and want to have access to resources in order to help themselves or someone else,” Thompson said. “This is an issue that

affects many people, especially on college campuses.” An eating disorder panel discussion, “Walking a Thin Line,” will be held Feb. 27. It will feature people who struggle with eating disorders and health professionals discussing the issues people with eating disorders face. The panel will also discuss what to say to someone who has signs of an eating disorder, how to support someone who is currently getting help for an eating disorder, what you can do to prevent eating disorders, where someone who is struggling with an eating disorder can get help and how our own beliefs and attitudes can unknowing-

ly reinforce the behavior of someone struggling with an eating disorder. The discussion will take place 4-5 p.m. in Room 247 of the Schindler Education Center. “Eating disorders have the highest rate of mortality of any mental illness, and I want people to know that this is a serious disease, and I hope the panel and discussion will help give people the resources to get help if they are struggling,” Thompson said. “Eating disorders are so much more than food.” According to the International Journal of Eating Disorders, 91 percent of women surveyed on a col-

In a survey done in 2001 by the American Journal of Psychiatry, an estimated 10-15 percent of people with anorexia or bulimia are male. Additionally, men are less likely to seek treatment for eating disorders because of the perception that they are “women’s diseases,” according to the American Psychological Association. “It does not matter what shape or size someone may be, eating disorders can affect anyone, and if people are more aware of eating disorders and are educated about eating disorder prevention, it could potentially save a lot of people from struggling,” Thompson said.



Every week, approximately 20 students and about 15 tutors meet at the First Methodist Church. However, with the weather getting warmer and many potential new students coming, they would like to have more tutors from UNI who are willing to help. “Try to imagine doing your taxes or a job application or anything like that without knowing English,” Soppe said. Even though the concept may be difficult, most of the students enjoy coming every week to learn. “I like this class very much,” said one of the refugees who attends the tutoring sessions. “This tutoring class provides us to learn individually and we too can ask whatever we don’t know. I have improved a lot and I am more confident of learning and speaking English. I love it!” The names of refugees have been withheld for political reasons.

lege campus had attempted to control their weight through dieting; 22 percent dieted often or always and 35 percent of “normal dieters” progress to pathological dieting. Of those, 20-25 percent progress to partial or full-syndrome eating disorders. In another survey, of 185 female students on a college campus, 58 percent felt pressure to be a certain weight. Of the 83 percent that dieted for weight loss, 44 percent were of normal weight, according to the Nutrition Journal. Contrary to popular belief, women are not the only people who struggle with eating disorders.

DIY: At home in the dorms JACINDA RUGGLES Staff Writer

There’s not a lot of room for extra things when living in the dorms. But there are still things that are good to have on hand. Business casual clothes


Materials: Wooden TV tray Marker Scissors Ruler Heat resistant batting ½ yard cotton fabric Craft glue (I used wood glue) Lightweight staple gun and staples

Step 1: Lay the TV tray over the batting. I had low lift batting and folded it so I could use four layers. If you use high lift batting, you’ll only need two layers. Use the marker to make an outline of the tray on the batting. Cut the batting right inside the line that you drew.

Step 2: Lay the batting on top of the cotton fabric. Use the ruler to mark the fabric 3 inches out from the batting. This will leave plenty of room to fold the fabric down to the bottom of the tray. Cut out the measured fabric. Step 3: Put a little bit of glue along the corners of the TV tray and a couple lines in the middle. Place the batting you cut out on top of the TV tray. The glue will hold the batting in place while you attach the cotton fabric.

are worn quite often and most ironing boards are big and clunky. Why not make a smaller ironing board yourself out of a TV tray? It’s portable, it folds flat and it’s easy to make. “Eat your vegetables!” cry moms everywhere. Here’s an easy and quick


way to be able to tell your parents that you ate a vegetable today. It works with sweet potatoes, russets, Idaho and just about any potato you can think of. You can also switch it up and use other vegetables like zucchini or beets (which taste much better in salted chip form).


Step 1: Very thinly slice the potatoes with a knife.

Ingredients: 1 potato Non-stick spray Salt and pepper Knife and cutting board (or a mandolin)

Step 2: Put the slices onto a microwaveable plate. Spread them out and spray with nonstick spray so they don’t stick to each other.

Step 3: Sprinkle the slices with salt and pepper. Step 4: Microwave for approximately 2 minutes or until crispy and cooked liked a chip. Be sure to let it cool so you don’t burn your tongue like I did!

Step 4: Place the cotton fabric you cut out right side down. In the middle of the cutout, place the TV tray upside down.

Step 5: Fold the fabric over so the edge is on the underside of the tray. Glue a couple spots to keep it in place. Then use the staple gun to staple along all sides of the tray, making sure to pull the fabric tightly around the tray.

UNI moves into 2nd







Sports Writer

Momentum can be a dangerous thing. Luckily for the Panthers, it’s a weapon they wield entering the final stretch of the 2013-14 season. After dispatching Loyola University Chicago 73-49, UNI climbed into second place in the Missouri Valley Conference as the regular season wound down. UNI grabbed a lead on Loyola early and, thanks in large part to guard Madison Weekly’s career-high 23 points, they kept it. Weekly drained six 3-pointers in the game, which made her only the 15th player in UNI history to do so. It was the fifth time this season Weekly scored double figures. Forward Amber Sorenson was the only other Panther to score in double figures with 11 points, but four other Panthers scored seven or more points on 22 assists.

ERIN KEISER/Northern Iowan

Madison Weekly (2) scored a career-high 23 points in UNI’s win over Loyola University Chicago.

LUC forward Troy Hambric scored a team-high 16 points, but needed 20 shots to do so. The inefficient performance was the only sign of life from the Loyola offense, as no other Rambler scored more than 6 points or had more than two assists. The win likely makes the Panthers’ matchup on Mar. 8 against Indiana State

University a battle for second place for the season. Although the Panthers lost to the Sycamores earlier in the year, UNI will have the home-court advantage for their second matchup. Before UNI’s matchup against ISU, the Panthers will be looking to complete the season sweep of Bradley University Sunday. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m.

Sports Writer

The Northern Iowa softball team was able to enjoy 60-70 degree days over the weekend as they took part in the Florida State Unconquered Invitational. The Panthers won two out of the four games they played on Friday and Saturday, dropping both to the University of California SantaBarbara and giving themselves an overall record of 8-5. The tournament featured UNI, UCSB, Florida State University, Florida A&M University and Charleston Southern University. Senior pitcher Jamie Fisher

game with another solid performance. Friday, Fisher gave up just one hit to the Rattlers of Florida A&M, picking up her fourth win of the 2014 season as the Panthers won 4-1. Fisher struck out seven of the 23 batters she faced and walked none. In the second game of the night, the Panthers struggled to find offense and were handed a tough defeat by the Gauchos of UCSB, 15-1. Saturday, UNI had a quick rematch with the Gauchos with a better result, as they took the game into extra innings. However, they lost in the bottom of the eighth inning off

of a walk-off double. Despite the tough loss, the Panthers ended their run at the invitational on a winning note as they beat the Buccaneers of CSU. The Panthers benefitted from an eruption of six runs in the top of the sixth inning. Sophomore shortstop Caitlin Wnek had a productive game in the batter’s box, recording three RBIs. Sophomore pitcher Chelsea Ross was credited with the win, making her record 3-2 on the year. The Panthers will make another trip south next weekend when they head to Bowling Green, Ky., for the Western Kentucky Hilltopper Classic.

Despite ending the game on a 23-6 run, Northern Iowa fell to the Drake University Bulldogs 67-70 on Tuesday. Seth Tuttle led the Panthers with a gamehigh 20 points to go along with seven rebounds. The four other UNI starters combined for just 13 points while shooting 20 percent from the field collectively. UNI led for the first 37 seconds before finding themselves down 13-2 early. Drake’s Richard Carter was a catalyst in building the lead. Carter’s buzzerbeater to end the half gave the Bulldogs a 37-26 lead heading into the locker room. He finished with 19 points and a game-high six assists. Tuttle took over the offensive duties for the Panthers as he scored 14 straight points at the end of the first half and the start of the second. A Matt Morrison 3-pointer ended Tuttle’s scoring run while bringing the score to 52-35 with 13 minutes, 2 seconds remaining in the game. Down 62-44, Morrison knocked down his second 3-pointer of the game to start a furious Panther comeback run. Deon Mitchell provided a spark off the bench for UNI in the second half as he scored 13 of his 16 total

points in the second half. Mitchell’s layup with 28 seconds remaining brought the Panthers to within one point, 64-65 — the smallest deficit since the opening minutes. Carter missed one of his two free throws but extended the lead to 2 points with 16 seconds left on the clock. Mitchell found himself in a familiar position as he drove past his defender to the basket, but the game-tying bucket went off the rim and the Bulldogs secured the rebound. Karl Madison’s 3 points may have been the most important for the Bulldogs, as he hit his free throws down the stretch to seal the Drake victory. The Panther loss moves them into fourth place in the Missouri Valley Conference standings, tied with Missouri State University. UNI returns to action Wednesday when it hosts Southern Illinois University for senior night. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
