Staff Writer

The Iowa Board of Regents voted 7-2 to approve a 5 percent tuition increase for the University of Northern Iowa for the 2011-2012 academic year during their March meeting last week. The increase means that in-state undergraduates will pay an extra $306 for tuition next year. Out-of-state undergraduates will pay an additional $722, in-state graduate students an extra $356 and out-of-state graduates an additional $78. In-state students in UNI’s Business upper division will see an increase of 11.3-percent, or $806, next year while out-of-state business students will pay an additional 7.9 percent, or $1,222.

University of Northern Iowa student Anna Williams of Carlisle, Iowa, was pronounced dead at the scene of an early morning car crash on March 18 just north of Durham Avenue and Highway 330. The Marshall County Sheriff ’s Office announced Williams, a sophomore and active band member, was heading to UNI in order to leave for a Women’s NCAA Tournament basketball game when her vehicle rolled due to unknown causes. According to friends, Williams, daughter of Karl and Kristy Williams, touched many lives.

WILLIAMS continued from page 1

“In a nutshell, Anna was the happiest, goofiest, funniest and kindest person I’ve ever met,” said Ethan Harvey, a junior English major and friend of Williams. Harvey was one of many who could not stress enough how many irreplaceable memories of fun and laughter she created. Williams was a dedicated member of UNI’s band, so they decided to continue with their plans to attend the basketball tournament in Wichita, Kan. At the tournament, some students went to Build-a-Bear Workshop to make an “Anna Bear” that sat with the band during Sunday night’s game and was later given to Williams’ parents. Williams’ visitation and funeral were held in her hometown of Carlisle. “The funeral started with a small pep band in the

church playing the fight song as the casket was brought forward. The audience stood up and clapped and when it was finished, her dad came over and asked if we could play it again,” said pep band director Daniel Galyen, an

saassistant professor in the School of Music. Galyen later reminisced about how “it was a nice way to celebrate her.” The band is still celebrating her as they think of ways to honor Willimas.

“And the interesting thing is that they are all grieving – even the students that really didn’t know her,” said Galyen, “And what I have been trying to tell the students is that no matter what kind of grief it is, it is all significant and sincere, no matter whether they were (best friends with her) or not.”

sophomore organizational communication major

Besides being an expert trombone player, Williams double majored in psychology and communicative disorders, worked in UNI’s Writing Center, held her spot as an honors student, was a scholarship recipient and had a powerful devotion to her faith.

“I was lucky enough to see her strong faith that was focused in every action every single day – I know she has already made a million friends in heaven,” said Rachel Tish. Tish, a sophomore majoring in organization communication at UNI, was Williams’ close friend and roommate. She and Williams planned to be in one other’s future weddings. Tish said she is having a hard time imagining not sharing her life with Anna. Katy Paulsen, a sophomore majoring in communication studies, could give countless example of Anna’s contagious love of life and charismatic personality. “She loved dancing!” said Paulsen. “She danced to almost every song, and always made people laugh and smile with her facial expressions. The last thing she did in Cedar Falls was line dancing at the Wheelhouse with a few of her friends.” “We’re all better off for knowing her… and we’re all going to miss her terribly,” said Harvey.

Financial Literacy Month quickly approaching BLAKE FINDLEY Staff Writer

In order to raise awareness of financial literacy, University of Northern Iowa’s Office of Student Financial Aid is sponsoring a Financial Literacy Month, which is to take place from April 1 to April 22. “I think this is a fun and engaging way for students to learn how to manage their own finances, and hopefully will teach them the potential impact their actions and decisions of today will have on the future,” commented Tim Bakula, associate director of Financial Aid. Bakula described Financial Literacy Month as an extension of Live Like a Student, which covers more basic information regarding financial literacy. “Financial Literacy Month is intended to cover more in-depth information about finances after college, and to just raise awareness of financial literacy,” said Bakula.

is the final step of the College of Business and Administration’s three-phase plan to add a $750 surcharge to upperclass business students’ tuition in order to prevent class size increases and decreases in course offerings. The increase follows this year’s 6.5-percent tuition increase the university implemented in response to former Governor Chet Culver’s 10-percent across-the-board budget cuts. The university will implement next year’s tuition increase in order to minimize reductions in institutional quality – which could include larger course sizes, fewer course offerings, and program and salary cuts – that may come as a result of potential cuts in state appropriations that could result in deep budget reductions for UNI. The state has yet to decide upon a budget for next year. According to UNI President

Benjamin Allen, the university has created possible budgets for best-, middle- and worst-case scenarios. “For the best-case scenario we would probably be able to make it through this year without any furloughs or staff reductions,” he said. The same cannot be said for the other scenarios. During the meeting, student body president Joel Anderson expressed his reluctant support for the tuition increase provided that it goes to “maintain or improve the quality of education” at UNI. “As a student and a student representative, I cannot in good conscience stand in favor of any tuition increase that places the burden of public higher education on the backs of the students and families that seek it,” he said. “However, as an Iowan, and as a student, I want to see the best quality education in this great state.” Anderson, who mentioned several sacrifices the university has made in order to make up for reductions in state appropriations, called for the Board to speak on behalf of higher education year-round in opposition to the state’s apparent trend to cut funding in order to find efficiencies. “The argument that the university can turn cuts into an increase of efficiencies is no longer valid,” he said. “… In the past decade we have gone from trimming the fat to cutting the meat to now scraping the bone.” Anderson mentioned that Maucker Union and Rod Library have reduced their hours in order to save money while students must wait longer to make appointments to see advisors in the Offices of

while decreased course offerings are forcing students to stay at UNI an additional year. While only Regents Michael Gartner and Ruth Harkin voted against the tuition increase, some other Regents only reluctantly supported the increase. “As a student, no one wants to be in a position to vote for a tuition increase, but it makes sense right now,” said Regent Greta Johnson,

“This is the first year we’ve done it (Financial Literacy Month). Hopefully, it will become a yearly thing, as there is a big push to raise financial literacy and awareness,” said Hoium. “I hope Financial Literacy Month will encourage students to think about it (financial literacy) now, rather than a year after graduation. It is much easier to start saving now as compared to years down the road. Students just need to become aware of how it will impact them.”

More than 500 students attend Dance Party: Back to the baSIX By SARAH KELZER Staff Writer

The party began with a rhythmic chant: “webelieve-that-this-will-rock! We-believe-that-this-willrock!” The crowd never ceased to cheer as Dance Party: Back to the baSix took off on Saturday at the Lutheran Student Center on College St. Each semester, a group of eight students has successfully put on a massive party that grows in numbers. With approximately 300 people at the door and 500 people in attendance throughout the night, the crowd was continually asked to stop jumping for fear that the floor would collapse. The atmosphere of Dance Party: Back to the baSix and dance parties before it is one that attendees say is nonjudgmental. “It’s a great way to bring out your inner Lady Gaga,” said Ian Goldsmith, a junior psychology and theatre major, who showed how crazy the party atmosphere is by pump-

ing his arms and screaming, “Hey!... Okay I’m going to dance over here now! … Hey!” The original dance party, DP ‘08, started because four guys from the University of Northern Iowa wanted to have some friends over at their apartment. Fewer than 50 people came to the party. “People had so much fun that we did it again the next semester, and from that point on it just sort of snowballed into a organization, really, but nothing that is linked to the university by any means,” said Tim Getting, a senior electronic media major and one of the original founders of the dance parties. The group soon realized they needed a bigger location, so they moved their party to the Lutheran Student Center in order to hold the larger crowd. This year, the dance party was held by eight UNI students who refer to themselves as “Break-it-Down Industries.” Tim Getting, Colin Dietrich, Matt Bauerly, Jason Thompson, Andrew Pay,

JORDAN WEAVER/Northern Iowan

More than 500 University of Northern Iowa students and their friends attended Dance Party: Back to the baSIX Saturday at the Lutheran Student Center. The dance party, which started in 2008 with 50 people, has become a tradition for many UNI students. (Top) UNI students dance the night away Saturday while sporting their glow-in-the-dark gear. (Above) UNI junior psychology and theatre major Ian Goldsmith dances in front of a crowd.

Logan Mundt, Ian Goldsmith and Michael McAndrew have each brought a skill set that makes the dance parties what they are today. The group is run like a student organization, with meetings every Sunday, Dance Caravans to advertise, the handing out of invitations as formal announcements, promotional videos, t-shirts, posters and fundraisers. Goldsmith remarks how he wants his parents to visit one of these parties just to prove how many people show up to the once-a-semester event. “They don’t really get how much work it is and what it has become – they just think I’m messing around,” said Goldsmith. The goals behind the dance parties are for students to have fun, let loose and leave their insecurities at the door. “I think a huge factor about why the dance party has become what it is, is the stu-

dents at UNI,” said Getting. “There’s something really special about UNI students … they’re not afraid to just let loose in a good way.” Getting gives the Interlude Dance as a perfect example of the charisma of UNI. “Something that goofy and ridiculous… they just embraced it!” Getting said. “I know there are a couple of high school students who have come with their older siblings who go to UNI, and this has made their decision to go to UNI,” Goldsmith said. The main message of the night: if you dance like you are having a seizure, do not suppress it! Logan Mundt, a junior outdoor recreation major, said the dance parties are not antialcohol, but hope to show students that you can have fun without drinking. “We just kinda want to put the message out there – like you are able to have fun with-

out having alcohol,” Mundt said. Even though alcohol is a stereotypical part of college parties, Getting said that “every semester after the dance party, I have had someone come up to me personally and say, ‘thank you for putting this on; I didn’t really know it was possible to have this much fun without being peer pressured.’” Although the dances require a lot of time and effort, the group is reluctant to make themselves an actual student organization. They like the simplicity of people just getting together to dance and have a good time -- like it was originally planned. Getting and Dietrich are the last two dance-founders at UNI and are graduating this May. “My ‘dream’ is to one day have children that will go to See DANCE PARTY, page 7

Four Square Friday: A UNI tradition By ELIZABETH COLLINS Staff Writer

Students walking in front of Maucker Union on a Friday afternoon may find themselves cajoled into playing some four square. “One hundred percent free or your money back!” shouted Peter Schares, a senior English teaching major and unofficial four square ringleader, during a game of four square Friday. Four square games have been present on the University of Northern Iowa campus for several years, although the exact date they began is uncertain. “It’s been happening since before I came here in 2006,” Schares said. UNI is not the only university where students enjoy a bit of nostalgic fun. Four square is popular at Florida State University and in Canada at the University of Newfoundland. Many adults, in fact, still play the popular recess sport. The Four Square World Championships take place in Bridgeton, Maine, each year in February. The game, also referred to as square ball or box ball, is fairly simple. Each player stands in a square and the ball is bounced from a square designated as the server square into the square diagonally across from the ELIZABETH COLLINS/Northern Iowan server square. The ball is to bounce Adrianne Williams (left), a junior education major, hits the ball during a game of four square Friday in front of Maucker Union.

UNI that will attend a dance party,” Getting said. “So we decided to have an internship program that started last semester.” Three people were emailed and asked to apply, write a one-page statement of interest, tell why they should be hired as a dance party intern and come in for official interviews, which consisted of sending interns into a room, turning on the music and seeing how they would react. The interns were then quizzed on the dance party history, given hypothetical situations about issues that could arise at the dance party and how they would handle it. Candidates were also required to give their input and ideas on ways to improve future dance parties. The three interns, Ian Goldsmith, Logan Mundt and Michael McAndrew, all passed the internship process. “They are going to take over next semester, and I am 100 percent confident that the dance party is in great hands,” Getting said. “They not only have a passion for the dance party, but each one is able to bring something to (the) table while being able to surround themselves with people who really embody what the dance party is all about.”

How in the world I find myself writing about rape once a year, I’ll never understand. It’s our societal big, bad monster. We are all supposed to support those who have gone through the experience and never question how our society addresses it. The former is, of course, what we should do. The latter, I will argue, is not. First, some facts about rape from the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network. Seventy-three percent of rapes are committed by non-strangers. Thirty-eight percent are by friends and 28 percent by those in an intimate relationship. Half of rapes occur within one mile of the victim’s home. The idea of a masked stranger accosting a woman from behind the bushes is simply not realistic in most cases. Another mischaracterization of rape is in the prevalence of “date rape drugs.” That is, drugs put in victims’ drinks to render them incapacitated. Liverpool’s Center for Public Health’s meta-analysis of date rape drug studies found that less than 5 percent of sexual abuse victims have these substances

Trauma is treated differently by everyone. Some of you reading this will probably try to discount me by this point. I’m a man talking about this experience. What do I know? Well, I’m a rape victim. As all the numbers suggest, it was in my room, with a friend, while drunk. I was lucky enough to be a man; no one expects rape to ruin a man’s life. In fact, most people laugh off my experience altogether (an entirely different problem). The experience has had no impact on my life. I realize I’m lucky because of that, but I know I’m not the only one who has gone through it this way. It’s time we take a new approach to rape. Drop the survivor rhetoric and don’t tell women how it will affect their lives. Stop playing to fears of men in bushes and spiked drinks. Some women will never be the same after being raped; others will move on quickly. Don’t tell them a “correct” way to do it. If we stop telling women rape is the Worst Possible Thing Ever, we can give them the autonomy to deal with the events in the way they choose to – not the way we tell them they should.

Why take cues from Victoria Jackson? Really? BRANDON POLL Managing Editor

On March 18, 2011, the world got a little closer glimpse of the twisted ideology of Victoria Jackson, a “Saturday Night Live” veteran from 1986 to 1992. Victoria Jackson wrote in her column on World Net Daily, “Did you see ‘Glee’ this week? Sickening! And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians – again! I wonder

to be male and gay. Brooke Anderson of “Showbiz Tonight” interviewed Victoria Jackson on her remarks. Upon viewing the interview, I was horrified. Jackson is an old cast member of SNL whom I honestly have not seen in the spotlight except for this one moment. I felt it was completely unnecessary to grant her an interview. Her remarks may be a bit colorful and thought-provoking, but their inclusion in this discussion is unwarranted. However, Jackson’s remarks are not the main purpose behind this article. I couldn’t help but notice the reaction in general toward “Glee” for showing an act of compassion between two human beings. I think the backlash is way out of proportion to what was portrayed on the show. Granted, we’re not accustomed to seeing acts of affection between samesex couples like this. Years and years of suppressing the media portrayal of these individuals has forced a certain shallow minded response to what samesex couples are like today. Regardless of our personal convictions or religious beliefs, we are not entitled to tell others how to live (or love). No one has the right to condemn another person and deny them the right to pursue happiness or live how they want to live because of their sexual orientation. It quite frankly sickens me to know a human being who is designed the exact same way as everyone else, living and breathing air, feels they have the right to tell others they are “wrong” as a person. Ladies and gentlemen, I am not asking you to embrace things you are not accustomed to or to chastise you for the actions of others whose views you may share. The fact is, we live in a very diverse society and no one should be made to feel wrong for being who they truly are. What “Glee” portrayed is society as it should be: accepting of all individuals for who they are. Hats off to “Glee” for portraying a same-sex couple because with representation such as this, those who wish to pretend the world is full of people just like them have to see the truth.

from the editorial staff

The courage to care

On the afternoon of Friday, March 11, a massive earthquake, 9.0 on the Richter scale, rattled the northeast coast of Japan. Shortly thereafter, a tsunami reported to be about 10 meters (33 feet) in height ripped into the coastline. The waves seemed to devour almost everything in their path and reached as far as about 10 kilometers (six miles) inland. Between them, these disastrous events have claimed more than 10,000 lives, with thousands more injured or missing, according to estimates by the Japanese National Police Agency released March 23. They have the potential to claim even more depending on the final outcome of the nuclear crisis caused by damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, a grim situation at best. At this time, one would expect a quick response from friends of Japan in terms of providing aid to the nation. For the most part, there has been an outpouring of support, aided in its speed and breadth by social media. However, websites such as Facebook and Twitter have also been a sounding board for some less-than-charitable “contributions” from users. The comments range from insensitive and thoughtless to downright ugly. Within hours of the disaster, collages were compiled with screenshots of tweets and status updates. Some people claimed the earthquake and tsunami were necessary, because Japan is “way overpopulated anyway.” Some (incorrectly) claimed that one “didn’t see Japan helping out after (Hurricane) Katrina, so why should we help them?” Others made cheap, often morbid jokes. Perhaps the most obnoxious are the many references to Japan’s 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. Many have paraphrased television writer and comedian Alec Sulkin’s tweet (for which he later apologized), saying, “Wanna feel better about the earthquake in Japan? Just Google ‘Pearl Harbor death toll.’” If you Google “Pearl Harbor death toll,” you’ll get Wikipedia’s estimate of 2,350 and National Geographic’s figure of 2,390. However, if you take a moment to Google “Hiroshima and Nagasaki death toll,” you can find the BBC’s estimate of about 135,000. An exact number is hard to come by, however, due in part to the difficulty of tracking the long after-effects of radiation on people in the vicinity of the two atomic bombs the United States dropped on those cities in 1945. So, 70 years later, those 135,000 Japanese lives weren’t enough “retribution” for some people? Victoria Pynchon, in a blog post on, has an interesting theory to that end. She said, “People who say the Japanese ‘deserve’ it, like those who believe AIDS is God’s punishment for immorality, are suffering from a cognitive bias called Fundamental Attribution Error.” Pynchon noted that these cognitive biases “cause otherwise kind and rational people to believe that their neighbors are mean-spririted, ill-willed or downright evil.” Basically, Pynchon says, catastrophic events such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan make us feel threatened. In order to protect ourselves, we attribute these events, if they happen to others, to something those people did rather than circumstances beyond their control. This also frees us from reaching out to aid the victims or preparing for disaster ourselves. Accoring to Pynchon, “It eases the burden on our conscience that the troubles of other people impose on us.” Clearly this attitude gets us nowhere in terms of helping Japan, our friend and neighbor, in its recovery. You don’t need to give a lot – you just need to give a little, in terms of both your effort and your attitude. Start using those Google skills to find out ways you can help.

are all in need of some change. Why not a nice Iowan dictator? As those on the right continually are reminding us, the Arabic people are not ready for democracy yet (with the exception of Iraq, of course). Therefore, it is in their best interests for us to help select a new leader. I feel that any student of philosophy would be a prime candidate for these positions. Their major has taught them to think critically and resolve problems as effectively as possible: all redeeming qualities in a sovereign. It may be hard at first considering the language barrier, but I am sure the Egyptians would prefer teaching their leader Arabic as opposed to the definition of a civil liberty. But what about the non-phi-

losophy majors? Well, the new dictators will have quite a bit of work to do in rebuilding their respective countries. As such, there will be a need for every type of major in creating a flourishing nation. At the very least, the new Egyptian leader will need some Construction Management majors to build their new pyramid. So there you have it friends. There is no need to fret about the job market after graduation. Marketing majors will be able to find gainful employment with Mr. Promiscuous and those who are not will be able to work under the philosopher-kings and queens of the Middle East. If nothing else, for those who are white, rich and think President Obama is a Muslim, you always have the option of being a Republican candidate for President.

Waterloo Black Hawks move into a sixth-place tie with Youngstown By DUSTIN WOODY Sports Writer

The Waterloo Black Hawks used a mid-week match-up against the struggling Chicago Steel to tie the Youngstown Phantoms for sixth place and the final spot in the United States Hockey League Eastern Conference race for the playoffs, but the Black Hawks couldn’t pull ahead of Youngstown with back-to-back losses over the weekend. The Hawks started off strong on Wednesday night, scoring ten times en route to a 10-0 shutout of Chicago. Gunnar Hughes started off the scoring at 3:22 of the first period, cashing in on a power play with assistance from Mike Montagna and Luke Hannon. John Siemer added a second goal at 15:37 from Tyler Zepeda and

Hannon. Siemer had another goal unassisted at 2:03 of the second, and Jamie Hill scored from Siemer and Blake Thompson. Hill’s goal came at 10:15 and was also on the power play. In the third period, Alex Guptill was assisted by Hill at 2:09 and Aaron Pearce scored the Black Hawks’ third power play goal from Guptill and Siemer at 4:17. Dan McNamara added a goal at 11:46 assisted by Montagna and Jacob McDonald, and Siemer notched the hat trick at 13:14 from Tyler Zepeda. MacDonald and Montagna assisted Siemer’s fourth goal at 15:40, and at 18:10 of the final frame, Max Edson notched a fourth power play goal from Siemer and Pearce. Jay Williams made 26 saves for the Black Hawks. Siemer was able to offer his views as to why the team

The University of Northern Iowa tennis team lost 6-1 to the University of Wisconsin Saturday. The loss drops the Panthers’ record to 9-7 for the 2011 season. Laia GonzalezGarrido notched the only win for UNI on the day, beating Nicky Straca 5-7, 6-2 and 1-0 (4). In the first match-up between these two schools, Wisconsin took all of the remaining matches. The Badgers dominated the court, winning 10 of 11 sets. UNI dropped all three doubles matches and five of

six singles matches to reach the final match score of 6-1. The loss continued the Panthers’ difficulties during road matches, where they have a record of 3-6. Next weekend UNI will open Missouri Valley Conference play with a home match against the Drake University Bulldogs. The Panthers have seen success this year at the Black Hawk Tennis Club and are currently riding a six-match home winning streak. The Panthers’ lone loss at home came in the first match of the season against the University of Iowa Hawkeyes.

was so successful Wednesday night. “Things were starting to click with my line. I’ve been practicing really hard with my line throughout the week and we had a quick jump today and it just kind of fell my way,” Siemer said. Siemer said he was definitely aware that he had just scored a hat trick when his third goal went in. “It was on my mind right when I scored it. I actually had a dream last night about it, and it came true, so I’m pretty happy about that,” he commented. On Friday, the Black Hawks faced the Muskegon Lumberjacks in Muskegon. A scoreless first period ratcheted up the intensity in the second. John Parker scored just 33 seconds into the frame for Muskegon, See BLACK HAWKS, page 14

A second job that would be great would be a Major League Baseball relief pitcher. Those guys have it made. Relief pitchers can hang out in the bullpen and work one inning every other day while making bank. If I were a relief pitcher, I would make sure the local pizza establishments were on my speed dial. I also have the build of a guy in the bullpen

because the only running I would do would be on the trek from the bullpen to the pitchers mound. Another dream job would be an NFL kicker. Kickers rarely get hit, they don’t have to practice hard and they make millions of dollars. That sounds like a pretty good lifestyle to me. I would make sure that my wife was a “dime-piece” and on the TV show “Football Wives.” All these jobs sound

appealing. If you are a graduating senior and can’t find a job, I suggest you think about one of these great options. The only investment into these careers would be a kicking tee, a baseball or Internet access, right? If you think these career paths are too out of reach, I would just start polishing up your résumé. Good luck everyone and go Panthers!

15:42, and Moor added an unassisted, empty-net goal at 19:24. With Youngstown losing both of their contests over the weekend as well, Waterloo remains tied for sixth in the standings in the race for the playoffs. However, the Phantoms hold the tie-breaker, so Waterloo needs to find a way to get one more point than the Phantoms throughout the remainder of the season. Four of Waterloo’s last five games will be played at home, with the only road contest coming on April 6 in Dubuque. Cedar Rapids and Muskegon visit Young Arena next weekend on Friday and Saturday, while Green Bay and Dubuque round out the regular season for the Black Hawks’ schedule on April 8 and 9. The Green Bay game will be the final college night of the season, allowing college students to purchase any seat in Young Arena for just $7. The Black Hawks’ front office has also confirmed that they intend on playing Attack Attack’s Interlude, and UNI students are encouraged to come out and show Party Town how to Interlude. Evansville broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fifth inning to make it 2-0 in favor of the home team. In the top of the sixth, with their backs against the wall, UNI scored three runs to take the lead 3-2. Dunker drew a one-out walk to start the rally. Daugharthy followed with a single to put runners at first and second base, where they would remain with two outs and Haley Kriener coming to the plate. Kriener delivered in a big way, with a three-run home run to give UNI the lead. Freshman Jessica Severinsen came in to relieve Fisher of pitching duties in the bottom of the sixth and shut the door on the Evansville offense.
