UNI students donate plasma for revenue

Saving lives and saving money

RILEY COSGROVE Staff Writer

Taking a full load of classes and working a parttime job can be stressful for many students. Between scheduling work around class and balancing free time, it can be hard to keep up both academically and financially. “I really do not have enough free time between my job and school to have another job to make extra spending cash,” said University of Northern Iowa junior Luke Roseland. “Most of my money goes towards tuition and rent, so there isn’t really any money left for spending purposes.” However, in recent years, donating plasma has become another way to make money. Instead of working many hours, students can donate plasma

and make up to $50 a week. BioLife Plasma Services is a plasma donation center in Cedar Falls, and it is just a five minute drive from campus. Some students make the trip several times a week to keep their finances in line. Roseland, the video coordinator for the UNI football team, has been donating plasma at BioLife twice a week since he was a freshman. Traveling with the team and attending practices eats up a lot of Roseland’s time, so he donates whenever he has a break between school and practice. “If I did not donate at BioLife, I would have no other way to pay for my groceries, gas and rent since I am living off campus,” said Roseland. Roseland also pointed out how handy money

from BioLife can be when unforeseen expenses occur. “I broke my phone and had to buy a completely new one, but since I had BioLife money saved up I was able to purchase a new phone,” said Roseland.

according to the agenda. The operations request is a part of the Higher Education Operating request, which totals $508.8 million. Other UNI-related items include a $3 million request for renovations to the Schindler Education Center, which was constructed in 1972. “Renovation is needed to accommodate current curriculum programs and teaching methods since the

facility has not been improved to meet current standards or demands,” according to the request. The renovated space would create classroom simulation spaces, and other interior renovations would offer new teaching methods. The $3 million is requested for fiscal year 2015, which would begin the renovation planning. Funds totaling $9.9 million are requested in the 2016-18 fiscal year budgets. The Schindler Education

request is a part of the FiveYear State-Funded Capital Plan for 2015-19, which requests $689.4 million to be funded by capital appropriations or bonds according to the plan. Additionally, the BOR will vote on the re-admission of students to the Bachelor of Arts Geography program, which was suspended in 2012.

Madison McKone discusses the importance of water and staying hydrated.

MADISON McKONE mckonem @uni.edu

However, there are ways to beat these warm August temperatures, and the most effective step is to drink lots of water. It is amazing what water can do for a person. Our bodies are are more than 50 percent water and we cannot survive for more than a few days without it. According to Mayo Clinic’s article “Nutrition and Healthy Eating,” water is needed for all of the body’s main functions. It helps blood carry oxygen to our cells and helps our immune systems fight disease. It also aids in digestion and flushes out toxins. Although water is always important to us, it is especially crucial in the hot temperatures we have been experiencing in these first few weeks of school. Sweating, skin evaporation and even breathing results in the loss of fluids from the body, and strenuous exercise and increased heat accelerate the process. Too much fluid loss can lead to dehydration and illness. Signs of dehydration include dizziness and fatigue, dry lips and mouth and an increased heart rate. In order to make up for

Let your walls crumble down

With the new school year in swing it is time to say goodbye to summertime, or is it? It seems that while we had a typical Iowa summer, the weather has decided to welcome the new semester with a heat wave.

this lost water, we must be sure to consume the recommended amount of water each day to keep our body running as it should. We’ve all heard it, and the Department of Health and Human Services agrees that as a rule, we should drink approximately 1.2 liters or eight cups of fluids every day. Yet this is just a universal standard and we should remember that when referring to water, the more the better. Thankfully, the University of Northern Iowa makes water readily available. Residents in the dorms are all given a free water bottle on move-in day, and for those who live off campus, the bottles can be purchased in Maucker Union. You can fill your own reusable bottle with ice and water for only 25 cents, or purchase

things we don’t truly love and we feel the drive to look cool, be well liked and embody the funny, never needy, detached and perfect persona. We have forgotten what it means to like something just because we like it, to be who we really are, to speak openly and honestly. We as a culture have lost something vital: the ability to open up completely to one another. As a gay and transgender individual, I have experienced the terror that comes with choosing whether or not to live truly like yourself, to let the chips fall where they fall and let others choose as they will. The decision to fully come out of the closet has made my life harder in some ways, but it has also opened me up to the greatest amount of love and acceptance I could ever imagine possible: a love which exists not in spite of a secret

I’m hiding, but because of my whole self. We do risk loss by living our truth, but what we gain is so much more powerful: a connection to others on the deepest level of our being who truly understand and love us. If you do nothing else this school year, do this: set aside a time to have your “walls down” moment with the people closest to you. Use this moment to let go of your defense mechanisms, your ironic comments and plastered smiles. Let each other into your secret turmoil, your precious joy and your deepest thoughts. We are in the closet about so many things, and so many of us are holding in a lifetime’s worth of anguish and ecstasy because it isn’t fashionable to be a real human anymore. Maybe one day, with baby steps, we can all get to the point where we stop being embarrassed for being human and where having our walls down isn’t a once-in-awhile effort but an aspect of everyday life.

STUDENT LIVING

Stay hydrated and beat the heat. Drink up!

Opinion Columnist

The last couple of weekends, I have had the honor of spending time with some of my closest friends and taking part in a ritual we have dubbed “walls down.” In this ritual, we allow ourselves to be completely honest, to freely ask and answer any question. Rather than feel self-conscious or burdening, we reveal ourselves — our pain, our love, our demons, our fears and our hopes. From this experience, my friends and I have grown closer to each other than we ever could have imagined. We left the realm of petty judgments and entered a space of pure love. If I’m sounding too Oprah right now, I understand. It is easy to become cynical in the world we live in. But what truly struck me about the experience of “walls down” wasn’t how beautiful it was. What struck me was that we had to set aside a specific time to be honest, uncensored, loving and painfully ourselves. Has getting deep and meaningful with each other become so out of style that to experience it is a rare occurrence? We pretend to appreciate

Water not only helps our bodies biologically and health-wise, but it is also cheap and easily accessible. Stay hydrated and beat the heat. Drink up!

Local museum offers unique event series KELLEN NILLES and t-shirts. Staff Writer

Most people know that beer is made with barley, hops and yeast, but a lot of people may not know that the first beer was crafted in Babylon about 4,000 years ago, according to beerchurch.com. Fewer people still may not know about National Drink Beer Day, which falls on Sept. 28. The Grout Museum District in Waterloo is celebrating the holiday this year from 7-9 p.m. at the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum. The district plans to host a series of trivia nights based around unusual holidays. “The inspiration of it is really to have fun and yet still be able to visit the museum with a setting of people you wouldn’t normally visit the museum with,” said Jason Dornbush, the science outreach coordinator of the district. The Grout Museum District plans to hold the trivia nights in a casual setting. The cost for entry is $5 per person. Participants can enjoy a frosty beverage while learning more about beer. Food and beverages will be provided, as well as opportunities to win door prizes and gift certificates. Some of these prizes include a gift certificate to Caribbean Tan and Spa, certificates to local restaurants

“Everyone will leave with something,” said Dornbush. Other trivia nights include “National Nut Day” on Oct. 22 and “National Guacamole Day” on Nov. 14. More trivia nights will begin in February, including themes such as “Drink Wine Day,” “National Goofoff Day” and “National Cheeseball Day.” The event, inspired by unique holidays announced on local radio stations, such as “Make Your Own Hat Day,” aims to give the museum district a new look, according to Dornbush. He thinks the trivia nights are a way to change what college students feel about typical galleries. “(College students) don’t think of themselves in a museum,” said Dornbush. “They think of grandparents, or they think of an older generation walking through a museum, keeping your hands in your pockets and not touch anything or they think of children’s museums …. They think of wild, crazy kids.” “If we could get 100 people, I would be amazed. If we get 10 people I will also be pumped,” Dornbush said. “As long as we’ve got people coming, we’ll be happy with it.”

THE NORTHERN IOWAN PRESENTS: BEER FACTS • Beer is the third most popular drink in the world, behind water and tea. • The United States of America imports 37 percent of the world’s beer. • The bitterness of a beer is measured by the International Bitterness Units scale, or IBU. • Drinking beer moderately has been shown to possibly decrease risk of health issues such as stroke and cardiac diseases. • Beer is among the world’s first prepared beverages, and laws regarding the regulation of beer are including in the Code of Hammurabi.

well as a pregame show. “They are putting in a lot of work every week to get a new show ready so the audience can see a different show almost every game,” said Daniel Galyen, director of the marching band. “So they’re putting in a lot of time to get new music ready for (the audience).” Senior drum major Kody McCracken said his favorite

piece in the band’s lineup this season is the Macklemore mash-up consisting of “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us.” “It’s exhilarating just to hear. It’s like your heart just starts racing,” McCracken

said. “It gets us going and it will get the crowd going.” Aside from the large-band rehearsals, there are also small section rehearsals, led by a group of 50 students known as the student leadership team. The leadership team meets with Gaylen over the summer to plan the marching band’s season. They give input on music and potential shows and recommend how the band should operate to create the best experience for the students. During the marching band season, the leadership team helps everyone in their group find their marks on the field and makes sure they are ready for game day. “Your section is kind of like your family within the band,” said Galyen. “Because they are doing those section activities they develop their own personalities and their own relationships in the section.” He also mentioned that one section has a Thanksgiving meal together every November. “Each section has a lot of different traditions that they do that is kind of part of their section bonding,” said Johnson. She said one of the trumpet section’s traditions is having a freshman male from their section propose to a member of the UNI Dance Team with a ring pop during the third quarter. The trumpets also give each other nicknames, though no one knows where they come from. According to McCracken, the tuba and sousaphone

campuslife players “tubafy” people. The players sneak up on someone during the game and “blast random notes as loud as they can by them and scare them,” said McCracken. While band members spend a lot of time in their small section groups, McCracken said the whole band is like a family as well. “It is the largest family on campus and one of the most dysfunctional at times, but it’s also the greatest family where you can just meet and greet anyone from every department and major from freshman to super senior,” said McCracken. Susan Johnson, senior drum major, added that everyone takes care of each other from the moment band members arrive on campus. “The upperclassmen help people move bed lofts into the dorms, and when freshmen register on the first day of band camp there are leadership members who are helping them move their stuff from their car to their dorm room,” said Johnson. “From the very beginning you are part of something, and I think that’s such a huge thing for the freshmen.” The marching band course counts for one credit and has no requirements, though Galyen prefers students to have previous experience in their high school band. Aside from the band itself, the color guard and drumline are auditioned groups. The band holds a strong retention rate of 84 percent. Usually students will stick

with the band over the duration of their studies at UNI, which Galyen thinks shows how great of an experience they have while they are enrolled. “I think the reason why they keep coming back is they enjoy the activity so much,” said Galyen. “They are really happy kids, really excited to be there and I think their excitement shows in their performances on game day.” Just like any other sports team, the band gets pumped up before storming the field. Colby Campbell, junior choral music education major and third-year trumpet player, confirmed that some pregame shenanigans unfold. “Before we run on the field for pregame, we all line up in the tunnels and that’s where a lot of the pump-up stuff happens. People are running

around and yelling in each other’s faces, getting excited. Then we do run on, and you’re out of breath by the end of it. Then we play a big ol’ fanfare and the first thing that the audience hears is just huge and loud awesome.” McCracken said the best part of being in the band is “the overall game day experience in the Dome.” “It’s really different from an outdoor stadium because you can really feel the energy, especially with the marching band during halftime,” McCracken said. “The student section gets really involved in cheering us on and always supporting us. There’s a lot going on, but it’s always a positive experience on game days.”

Double Trouble

UNI beats second in-state opponent in as many weeks RILEY UBBEN

Sports Writer

Running back David Johnson rushed for 143 yards while quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen threw for 2 touchdowns as the University of Northern Iowa defeated the Drake University Bulldogs 45-14 Sept. 7. The victory was the second of the season against an in-state opponent. The Panther defense allowed just 48 yards of offense and forced 2 turnovers in the first half. The first score of the game came from junior linebacker Jake Farley as he recovered a Drake fumble and took it 20 yards for the touchdown. “Jake played well,” said UNI head coach Mark Farley. “I was watching that first half and he seemed to be making plays and was in the right spot at the right time.” Both defenses held strong as there were just four combined first downs for the entire first quarter. A fumbled snap on a Bulldog punt set the Panthers up in a good offensive field position with 3 minutes and 19 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Kollmorgen’s 8-yard touchdown pass to senior Phil Wright just under 2 minutes later gave the Panthers some offensive momentum as they put the offense on the board for the first time. The

offense stayed hot as sophomore Kevin Vereen caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Kollmorgen to give the Panthers a 24-0 lead. Vereen had 5 catches for 87 yards while adding a touchdown. “Kevin had a great game,” said Kollmorgen. “With Brett (LeMaster) getting hurt, Kevin definitely had to step

up and be that outside deep threat.” The Bulldogs put together their first scoring drive on their opening possession of the second half, which was capped off by a 7-yard screen pass to junior running back Gary Scott. The UNI defense tallied 6 sacks and held Drake to 1-of-16 on third-down con-

versions. Xavier Williams finished the game with 12 total tackles and two and a half sacks. “You have to change blocking schemes with a nose tackle,” said Mark Farley. “When we put (Williams) over the center, he is creating problems.” Johnson’s longest run of the game came on the

Panthers’ first play of the second half as he took the ball 65 yards for the touchdown. Johnson’s lone touchdown on the night would give the Panthers a 38-7 lead. The Panthers start the season 2-0 for the first time since 2007. UNI travels to Greeley, Colo., to play University of Northern Colorado on Sept. 21.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

UNI falls to 1-5 on the season NICK GARY

Sports Writer

The University of Northern Iowa women’s soccer team suffered two tough defeats in their first two home games over the weekend. The Panthers, who have numerous offensive players out with injury, struggled to generate any sort of offense. “We are forced to play defenders on offense, which is very unfortunate,” said UNI coach James Price. On Friday, the Panthers suffered a 2-1 defeat to Nebraska-Omaha University. UNI struck first, scoring in the 5th minute when Larin Gordon took a Claire Clark crossing pass and put it in the back of the net. It looked as though the

Panthers would hang on for their second victory of the season, but the Mavericks evened the score in the 83rd minute then took the lead 2 minutes later. UNI goalkeeper Nicole Postel recorded 4 saves in a losing effort. The Panthers were back in action Sunday and lost a 2-0 match to the Western Illinois University Leathernecks. Despite the loss, Price remained optimistic about his team’s play. “We started well, as we have a lot lately, but we did not take advantage of our opportunities,” Price said. UNI’s defense held tight once again until late in the game when WIU scored 2 goals. The Leathernecks’ second

goal came on a penalty kick when Erin Zaideman made an initial save but WIU’s Skyler Jessop scored off the rebound to increase the WIU lead. “Zaideman made a solid save on the penalty kick but the bounce off the save was just unfortunate,” Price said. UNI had an opportunity late in the game to cut into the Leatherneck lead. Amy Bennett attempted to bend her shot around the defenders but overshot the goal. The losses drop the Panthers’ record to 1-5. UNI won’t play again until Sept. 15 when it plays a home match against South Dakota State University. The Panthers then travel to Iowa City, Iowa, to face the University of Iowa Hawkeyes.
