SGA hears details for University Day BEN PEYTON Staff Writer

C h r i s t a C of f e y, a s s i stant director of campus life, addressed the UNT Student G ov er n ment A s s o c i at ion during a meeting Wednesday night about UNT’s University Day 2012, the celebration of the school’s transition from a college to a university in 1961. This year’s University Day will be the 51st and will be commemorated April 20 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Willis Library. The event will feature free food and entertainment for students with their UNT I.D. The celebrat ion w i l l be preceded by the annual flag parade before a speech by UNT President V. Lane Rawlins and the reading of the annual University Day proclamation. Coffey also elaborated on the newest addition to the University Day festivities. “The wonderful thing that we’re doing this year that’s different from other years is a scavenger hunt,” Coffey said.

Students can compete in the scavenger hunt by downloading the “SCVNGR” app on their smartphones and log their progress by uploading photos of the designated campus locations in the hunt. “The idea is to try to teach students about some of the traditions at UNT while having fun,” Coffey said. The scavenger hunt w ill begin Monday and wrap up April 20. Any students who complete t he hunt by t he deadline will be entered into a random drawing for “UNT swag” as well as the grand prize of a $100 gift card to the Campus Bookstore. The SGA also unanimously elected psychology and political science junior Chelsea Burkett to an at-will senate seat for the College of Education. Burkett gathered 109 of the required 100 signatures from College of Education students to be elected to the vacant senate seat.

The center also ranked 12th in rural medicine, 15th in geriatrics and 16th in family medicine, said Dana Benton Russell, director of public relations for the

Part of what enhances the college is its focus in rural medicine, Peska said. “Groups of students go and help provide health care in rural communities,” Peska said. “In rural areas, you don’t get all of the technology you see in the cities, and you deal with infectious diseases.”

Group forming to help transgender students CHELSEY COX

Contributing Writer The fledgling organization Trans*formers is working to impact and improve the lives of transgender students at UNT, as well as confront issues they may face. Bra nching of f f rom t he Gay and Lesbian A lliance of Denton, Tra ns*for mers is looking to create not only

support for its members, but to open up an opportunity for a greater understanding of the transgender lifestyle. “When the sex people were labeled at birth does not accurately represent their gender identity, it can be tough,” said Trans*formers adviser Clark Pomerleau, a history professor. “Trans*formers can become another space where such

people and their allies can support each other and find like-minded friends.” In the process of becoming its own organization separate from GLAD, Trans*formers has gained about a dozen members and is waiting to see if it gains consistent membership before trying to become an official organization. “We collaborated to create

a community organization that is specifically for trans people and our allies,” medical laboratory science senior Tyler Sanders said. Tra ns*formers hopes to or g a n i z e f u nd r a i s er s to sponsor members for help with medical or psychological therapy expenses that would be acquired in the transitioning process, such as a smaller scale

drag show modeled after the one GLAD holds annually. “We want to be open to everybody because we want everyone to be open to us,” said English literature senior Effy Freese, a starting officer with the organization. “But we also know that there is a lot more hesitancy out there than with the average queer community.”

Through Tra ns*formers, Freese hopes to educate the UNT community on an issue that many people aren’t familiar with. “It’s cool and disturbing to see how common it is on this campus because there hasn’t been a community thus far, and there are so many things to address with it,” Freese said.

Wells Fargo was not the only bank affected by the security breach. Any bank that has Visa and MasterCard cardholders could be at risk.

North Texas rapper, student making waves Leigh DanieLs Intern

Jarren Mack is leading a double life. There’s UNT senior Jarren Mack, studying public administration and emergency management at the Denton campus. Then there’s JMack, the up-and-coming Texas-by-way-ofEngland rapper who rhymes over his own self-produced beats. When Mack’s not at school, he can be found laying down tracks in a dimly lit studio decked with a keyboard, a vocal booth, production equipment and a beat-up backpack he loves so much he’s written a song about it. “I’m a night owl,” he said. “I’ll know I have school the next day, and it’ll be one in the morning, and that’s when I’m ready to write for a beat I’ve had in my head all day.” Mack has been taking the rap game by storm with his distinct brand of electronica and hip-hop and has several big-time opening shows under his belt, sharing the stage with artists such as Bun B, Killer Mike, Yelawolf, Trae the

It’s not all about the rap industry for JMack, and he said that right now his biggest focus is on graduating from UNT. Juggling his time between school and music is one of the biggest challenges he’s faced living his double life, Mack said. “My grades started to slip because I have such a passion for music, but I turned it around and put school first,” he said. He chose to study public administration and emergency management because of his military background and his desire to help those in need. “I wanted to do something totally across the street from music,” Mack said. Friend and publicist Ashton Lynne, of Dulce Vida Public Relations, said Mack brings a unique style to the table. “He has sustenance and isn’t drawn into the industry for the wrong reasons. He likes what he does, and that’s why he does it,” Lynne said. After a string of big performances and ink from various North Texas media outlets,

Truth and Big Tuck. Mack, whose father was in the Air Force, grew up across the Atlantic in England, which is where he first heard the song “Wake Up Call,” a collaboration between dance group The Prodigy and rapper Kool Keith. The song’s blurring of genre lines served as an early inspiration. He grew familiar with electronic music while living in England, and his love for rap artists such as Wu-Tang Clan and UGK started when he moved to Allen, Texas in 1990. In high school, Mack began rapping with his friends as a way to goof around and make fun of each other, but it eventually turned into something more emotional. “When my grandmother passed away, it was a way to vent,” he said. Mack said it had always been a passion of his to listen to music, and he longed to emulate his favorite artists. “I just want to inspire people the way I was inspired,” Mack said. “That’s my motivation.”

Emergency administration and disaster planning senior Jarren Mack, also known as JMack, stands in the recording room in one of the studios he uses Tuesday afternoon in Carrolton. Mack has opened for artists such as Bun B and Yelawolf. Lynne said Mack is on his way to becoming a household name in Dallas. Pre-radio, television and film sophomore Max Fuerst is a recent fan of JMack who said the rapper presented a breath of fresh air.

“He’s got a unique style because of his refreshing rhyme structure,” Fuerst said. “It’s good to see someone breaking the mold.” JMack’s music is available on iTunes, and his first album, “First

Initial, Last Name,” is available on his website, www.jmack972. com, for free. He’s currently working on an album – set to drop this summer – and regularly performs in venues around Dallas-Fort Worth.

Guest chef chips in at student restaurant naDia hiLL Staff Writer

Chef Christof Syré’s singsong voice trails behind him as he glides from one oven to another, gesturing grandiosely and keeping an eye on every student wearing an apron. Sy ré, execut ive chef at t he Fou r Seasons Resor t: Las Colinas, worked alongside students at The Club at Gateway Center on Wednesday to plan and produce a specially designed meal for The Club’s Guest Chef Day, which is held once a semester. About 200 patrons dined at the student-run restaurant – operated by the School of Merchandising and Hospitality Management to give students ha nds-on ex perience – to sample Syré’s menu. “Each year we hire from this campus, and I wanted to be part of building that relationship,” said Syré, a fourthgeneration restaurateur who w a s r a i sed i n G er ma ny. “My goal was to explore and build job opportunities for students.” Syré’s European cooking school background is informed by the years he later spent living in Asia, and his food fuses f lavor and creativity. His menu for Guest Chef Day included oven-dried tomato and bread soup, grilled salmon Nicoise style, white chocolate and praline mousse, and a strawberry mint salad.

relat ionsh ip bet ween t he university’s hospitality school and the hotel’s restaurant. “It’s a cha nce for chefs to come in and work w ith students and expose them to a broader audience,” said lecturer Charlie Foster, general manager of The Club. “During the pre-meal with students, the recipes just come to life, working side by side with the chef. It is definitely a positive, collaborative relationship.” Before the day of the event, Sy ré created a menu t hat students then adapted for correct portion sizes, adjusting ingredients based on The Club at Gateway’s budget. Students said the greatest challenge was learning how to plan and prepare more than twice the usual number of meals. “I am his right-hand person that makes sure everything is right,” hospitality and tourism senior Rhonda McTyre said. “This is my first time working with a chef one-on-one, and he has a lot of advice and is very informative. He’s shown me that it takes patience and great leadership, and if I ever become a chef I want to work

with him.” Syré said he enjoyed the experience of working with students in a fully operational restaurant. “It would’ve been good for future planning to have students involved [earlier in the process] because I provided the recipes, but it makes me understand the way students are taught and need support to be successful,” Syré said. Twent y students each day prepa re, cook a nd ser ve meals to keep the on-campus restaurant up and running. The Club is maintained by students f r om t w o R e s t a u r a nt Operations. The classes div ide up ma nagement and cooking responsibilities every three weeks, but all hands were on deck for Guest Chef Day. The Club at Gateway Center is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. for the rest of April. Meals are $7. To make a reservation, e-mail or call 940-565-4144.

Dogs’ day out in Denton K atie OLsOn Intern

Groups of students excitedly crowded around dogs of all breeds and sizes outside of the Willis Library on Wednesday. The University Program Council’s “Pet Experience” included wagging tails, furry ears and adoption tips courtesy of the Denton Animal Shelter. The Pet Experience, run by UPC Film’s Coordinator Joe Gonzalez, gave students a chance to talk to pet owners who have adopted dogs from the Denton Animal Shelter. The event was specifically aimed at students who are leaving on-campus housing and can consider taking in a pet. “We put on this event so students can be informed by current pet owners about how they can adopt and be pet owners themselves,” Gonzalez said. Dog owner Tracy Frier has volunteered at the Denton Animal Shelter for almost a year and knows how much commitment it takes to take care of pets. “We let the dogs out of their kennels and play with them, spend time with them and make sure they’re socializing and getting lots of love and attention,” Frier said. Because college students have schedules filled with class, work and other commitments, Frier encouraged any prospective pet owner to think carefully before adopting: pets, such as dogs, require time, care and devotion. “We encourage people to adopt dogs appropriate for their lifestyle,” she said. Frier also advocated for students to adopt from shelters or rescues because so many dogs are euthanized every year on a national scale.

“When you adopt from a shelter you really save a life,” she said. Math freshman and pet owner Melissa Parks agreed. “I’d rather give a second chance to a dog than get a new pedigree that’s expensive,” she said. However, she said she understands that adopting a dog is a big commitment and a decision that potential pet owners should take time to consider. “I think if you want to adopt from a shelter, you need to know ahead of time that dog had another life before the shelter,” Parks said. Frier also encouraged anyone interested in volunteering at the animal shelter to attend an orientation at Denton Animal Shelter

at 300 S. Woodrow Ln. on May 12 at 9:30 a.m. As for “The Pet Experience,” Frier said she hopes students will realize the responsibility of being a pet owner that comes with adopting from shelters or rescues. “Every breed is different, and it’s important to adopt a dog where their energy level is right for you,” she said. Gonzalez expects students to take the information they learned at “The Pet Experience” into consideration as well. “I think the students students gain an understanding of what it takes to be a pet owner and can also gain valuable experience from pet owners in the Denton Community,” he said.

UNT splits doubleheader Softball BRETT MEDEIROS Senior Staff Writer

On the strength of dominant pitching performances, the UNT (18-19-1) softball team and the Texas State Bobcats (25-15) split Wednesday’s doubleheader with both teams earning six-run wins at Lovelace Stadium. The Mean Green is 1-2 against the Bobcats this season.

Game One I n t he f i r st ga me of Wednesday’s doubleheader, Texas State senior pitcher Chandler Hall led the Bobcats to a 6-0 win, holding the Mean Green to five hits and zero runs on her way to her 15th complete game of the season. While the offense struggled, the defense did not help the cause. The Mean Green committed seven errors, putting junior pitcher Brittany Simmons and sophomore pitcher Lauren Poole in a tough position all

game. “We just weren’t feeling right out there on the field,” senior first baseman Maddelyn Fraley said. “It was really uncharacteristic of us.” Opportunities for the UNT offense didn’t come along often. The Mean Green had just three players reach second base. The bottom of the sixth inning was the best chance the Mean Green had to produce runs. With two outs and the bases loaded, UNT sophomore catchers Sarah McGann and Ashley McCarroll struck out back-to-back, ending the inning. “You know, sometimes you come out and if you don’t have complete and total focus, you have games like this,” head coach T.J. Hubbard said.

Game Two In the second game, the Mean Green flipped the script on the Bobcats for its own six-run win. With dominating pitching by

sophomore Ashley Kirk and the power hitting of Fraley, UNT won 7-1. After shutting down the Florida Atlantic Owls this past weekend, Kirk came out dealing once again, holding Texas State to one run on seven hits with eight strikeouts. “I honestly don’t think it is anything that I’ve done,” Kirk said. “The defense has been behind me 100 percent of the time. For them to come out and do that just gives me freedom in the circle, so I give them the credit.” Fraley led the way for UNT at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a three-run home run and five of the seven runs batted in. She now leads the Mean Green in batting average, home runs, slugging percentage and runs batted in. The Mean Green will return to action this Saturday as it travels to Monroe, La., to take on the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks for a three-game series.

In an effort to give back to his homeland, as his late mother wished, UNT head tennis coach Sujay Lama directs Project Nepal, a charity organization that raises money to sponsor orphaned children so that they may attend school in Lama’s hometown of Kathmandu, Nepal. “Not everyone is as fortunate as I am to leave the country, get a great education and get the experiences I’ve had,” Lama said. “We are one of the poorest countries in the world, so the best way to give back is to help the young people because they are the future.” According to the organization’s website, in 2002, when Lama went back to Nepal, he found that his sister, Poonam, and his father, Hem, had started a small school in their home and had sponsored five orphans to attend. Poonam named it the Nabha Deepti School. On that same trip, while out jogging one morning, Lama saw the children holding hands and walking several miles to the school. Lama said the children, with huge smiles on their faces, looked up at him and said, “Good morning, sir.” Lama calls that encounter a defining moment in his life. Feeling the need to make an impact in the children’s lives, he founded Project Nepal and began reaching out to get sponsors. Two weeks


Project Nepal, directed by UNT head tennis coach Sujay Lama, is a charity organization that raises money for orphan children to attend school in Lama’s hometown of Kathmandu, Nepal.

“...Sujay is very passionate about tennis, and he puts that same passion into Project Nepal.”

—Lynn Lama Sujay Lama’s wife

later, he had gained more than 15 sponsors. After a while, they decided to convert the school to educate only the underprivileged kids, drawing from three area orphanages. “At our height in 2008, we had 72 students, kindergarten through fifth grade,” Project Nepal communications director Dr. Ed Kellerman said. “It was a very vibrant program.” Last year, the Nabha Deepti School was forced to close its doors because Lama’s sister, who was the principal, had become legally blind, and his father, who is in his early 80s, was aging. Lama did not let that stop him from achieving his goal and reaching the children. Project Nepal continued to sponsor the children of the Prayas Nepal

Orphanage to attend the school that is directly across the street. Lama’s wife, Lynn, is Project Nepal’s IT coordinator and one of the organization’s four board members. “I just provide whatever support I can to him. Sometimes it gets tough raising money,” she said. “You see Sujay is very passionate about tennis, and he puts that same passion into Project Nepal.” He plans to continue his project until he reaches his final goal. “My ultimate goal will be to build a really big school and a big hospital because the health care there [in Nepal] is terrible,” Lama said.

Bass club working its way to success, prominence Club Profile Zach claussen Staff Writer

As the boat motors die down and the water begins to lose its ripple, bait is forced onto the metallic hooks of fishing poles, and casts whip through the air as the sun beams down on another eight-hour day at the lake. This is the life of a member of the UNT Bass Fishing club. The club was started in 2005 as a general fishing club, until 2009 when the club was reorganized and became the UNT Bass Fishing club. The club, created primarily for tournament fishing, was forced to cease operations in 2010 due to organizational problems. Mechanical and energ y engineering senior William Cartwright didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see the club sink and decided to take over as president in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took over as president and wanted to implement a bunch of new programs to increase the diversity and the awareness of the club,â&#x20AC;? Cartwright said. On March 23, undeclared sophomore Sea n Wat son and hospitality management senior Jesse Chambers each

placed in Cabelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Bass Bash Tournament. Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3.94-pound fish was good for a fourth place finish, while Chambersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4.75-pound fish earned him second place. Cartwright, now vice president and three-year club veteran, created a YouTube channel tit led â&#x20AC;&#x153;Collegiate Match Fishing,â&#x20AC;? which delves into bass fishing competitions and what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like spending the majority of the day out on a boat. Cartwright also created a website for the UNT Bass Fishing Club and began a partnership with KIDFISH. The partnership allows club members to supervise and teach kids how to become better fishermen. The club competes yearround in nine to 12 tournaments but focuses primarily on the Forrest L. Wood regional tournaments. Most tournaments are comprised of schools around the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, as well as Stephen F. Austin University and Texas. Lakes Lewisville, Ray Roberts, Grapevine and Lavon have all been fished by the club this season. The club is currently ranked No. 16 by the Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship in the

On Monday, all of Denton collectively took a deep breath and a well-deserved sigh of relief, because last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sun Belt Conference Freshman of t he Yea r Tony Mitchell announced he is returning to the Super Pit for his sophomore season. Mitchell is without question the face of Mean Green at h let ics, but what some people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that the effect he will have on next seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team could be monumental. Look at the starting lineup. As much as current seniors Tyler Hall, Kedrick Hogans and Alonzo Edwards gave to this team, their playing time was limited last season. Mitchellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return should be frightening enough as it is, but one canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but wonder how great Mitchell and freshmen guards Jordan Williams and Chris Jones can be together. Shor t l y a f t er M it c hel l

became eligible to join the team in December, Jones and Williams became academically ineligible, making it impossible for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top three scorers to be on the court at the same time. Last year, just the presence of Mitchell got a fanbase that struggles to get behind its teams to come out every game night and average an attendance of more than 4,000 people. If all goes well next year, the Mean Green could find itself with 25 wins, a Sun Belt Conference title and a 2013 NCA A Tournament appearance. The success in the season w ill bring even more fans to the Super Pit and more nat iona l coverage, a nd it should help Mitchell improve his NBA Draft stock. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see the day when the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prominent athlete leaves for the pros. Personally, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait. Mitchell still needs this season to let his game mature. He needs to create a back to the basket post game and to

Brett Medeiros refine his face-up game. W hen he f ine-tunes his game, he will be a NBA Draft lottery pick, and I would help him pack his bags. W hen heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drafted, UNT w ill become a destination for some of the best players in the nation, particularly in Texas. Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball head coach Johnny Jones has a lready created a huge success out of nothing when he joined UNT, and now, Denton could become a preferable destination for top tier recruits. Nex t season, t he Mea n Green can be the No. 1 team in the state of Texas.

Do you think Tony Mitchell made the right choice by staying at UNT for another season?

“Not exactly. The world is bigger than UNT, and he could benefit his family more from money he’d earn doing something else.”

“I think another year of school will be good for him in terms of advancing his education.”

Staff Editorial

Christian school wrongly fired teacher With its recent decision to fire volleyball coach and science teacher Cathy Samford because of her out-of-wedlock pregnancy Tuesday, Heritage Christian Academy of Rockwall, Texas, has established itself as an enclave of narrowmindedness and inconsistency. Though HCA claims that teachers in a Christian school are ministers and thus must adhere to a strict code of conduct, Samford is challenging the firing. The legality of the issue falls into a gray area. It is against the law to fire a person for a pregnancy or pregnancyrelated medical condition. However, HCA believes its code of conduct means it bypasses that employment law. While legally what this school did is

questionable, the real issue lies within the hypocrisy that this policy represents from a moral standpoint. In what way is it “Christian” to fire a soon-to-be mother and force her to go through pregnancy with no income or insurance? Probably in the same way it was “Christian” for the Pharisees to call for the stoning of an adulterous woman to test Jesus’ interpretation of biblical law. Jesus told the Pharisees, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” That’s an important lesson that’s gone completely ignored in a Christian society where looking right is more important than acting right.

HCA Headmaster Dr. Ron Taylor told, “How’s it going to look to a little fourth grade girl that sees she’s pregnant and she’s not married?” If Taylor and HCA truly believe in their own Christian values, then understanding and forgiveness of sin – a large part of Christian doctrine – should be of higher priority than their own image. Furthermore, this statement from Taylor exemplifies the sexist nature of this firing. A rule that could only be enforced against one sex or the other is by nature sexist. So what if a male teacher had impregnated a woman out of wedlock? The only difference in the case would be his ability to hide his actions because they don’t physically

manifest in front of administrators. They would have no way of enforcing this particular standard of conduct for males, and that says a lot about the practicality of this particular rule. Since being fired, Samford has tried mediation with the school, which yielded no result. The school also told WFAA that it doesn’t plan on settling the case. And so the responsibility for affecting positive change falls on the shoulders of Samford, who can and should fight for her rights as an employee and a mother, and to the rest of us, who cannot let injustices like this go ignored for the risk that they’ll continue in the future.


Bumper stickers do nothing but rabble-rouse “Meat is murder.” “Change: how’s that working out for you?” “I support a baby’s right to choose.” Just a sampling of common topics and phrases designed to fit on a 12 by 3 inch piece of adhesive, these very complex and personal issues are often accompanied by severe photographs intended to suddenly alter the belief system of the person reading it. This superior mindset implies that the general masses are not as educated or do not possess as well-developed an opinion as the owner of said bumper sticker. Another, more idealistic view is that those who stamp their cars with advertising ploys believe they are advocating and truly influencing those who tail their cars trying to read the tiny font. Bumper stickers often do not make an impact on the actual cause represented. Unless the owner makes frequent donations to a cause not monitored by a non-corrupt government or donates valuable time and skills to directly help someone in need, these stickers are sensationalized views designed to stir up passion, ignoring logic. For the money it costs to hire a designer, an advertising or marketing firm, a printer and a distributer, the organization behind these stickers could have donated an effective amount of cash to its own cause. While some organizations will donate part of the proceeds of these sticker purchases to the cause, it’s still only part. Donating the entire amount to a direct cause is much more effective. Beyond money and bumper

stickers, take for example the social media campaign for KONY 2012. The YouTube video advocating against child soldiers is heartbreaking, and everyone wants to make sure children are safe and sound at home. The problem, though, was the lack of education surrounding Ugandan politics and Invisible Children, and the effectiveness that a YouTube video and a changed profile picture has on a young boy being snatched from his home. The issue is not supporting an organization or having opinions, it’s how those beliefs are lived out, along the lines of walking the walk instead of just talking. The issue lies in using a slogan and photograph chosen by a focus group in order to make the public feel as if they are doing some degree of good. Truth be told, no one likes to be told by the back windshield of a dusty Explorer that their lifestyle choices are wrong.

Denton students should focus on homelessness An estimated eight percent of Denton county residents live below the poverty line, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. However, today marks Denton’s first “Day of Concern for the Hungry,” as declared by Mayor Mark Burroughs. The idea behind the day is to make Denton more aware of the needs of these people who are impoverished or homeless. As the city begins to do more for those in poverty, so should the students of UNT. The percentage of young adults who volunteer decreased from 22 percent in 2009 to 21.9 percent in 2010, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service. While this is not an astronomical percentage, it does point to a trend that college students are becoming less civically engaged. As members of the Denton community, however temporary that may be, it is important for students to be aware of issues such as homelessness and poverty, and in turn help do something about it. Exploring and working with issues such as hunger, poverty and homelessness helps students gain a broader perspective on not only how such problems affect these individuals, but society as a whole. It is difficult to think of a better time to volunteer than in college. Most students do not live a typical eight-tofive lifestyle, leaving plenty of time for them to be involved in something that matters to them or to the community at large. While Denton does not have a longterm shelter for homeless individ-

uals, the local Salvation Army offers temporary shelter, and organizations like Our Daily Bread and the Denton Community Food Center help supply meals for these individuals. Each of these organizations provides opportunities for students to get involved and help with this increasing problem the city is facing. It is easy to drop a few coins in the red buckets outside of stores during Christmas time. It is easy to donate a few leftover cans of corn after Thanksgiving. However, hunger, homelessness and poverty are issues that never go away. They are not seasonal. Therefore students’ awareness and active engagement in solving them should not be. Confucius once said, “In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of.” It is important for UNT students to help make sure that poverty in Denton is no longer something it is ashamed of.
