Recent technological developments help students find textbook bargains online and in stores BY KATIE TAGGART Assistant News Editor
Enter any classroom on Otterbein’s campus, and you will be sure to hear discussions about textbooks. Textbooks are often considered to be a major expense for college students, but due to recent technological developments, one can cut costs and still get the books needed for class. In addition to online stores such as Amazon, other sites are now making digital textbooks available, as well as textbook rentals the Otterbein bookstore offers. Carl Hill, manager of Otterbein’s bookstore, said that despite the growing popularity of sites such as Amazon, the bookstore still has a place on Otterbein’s campus. “Being that we have options, we feel that we are very competitive with others out there,” Hill said. “We do our best to have as many options as we can … We have text rental, and we have digital options.” He also said the store has a new “order management system,” which means that if a used textbook isn’t physically available in the store, it can be sourced from another of the store’s locations or warehouses. “Ideally, if it’s not in store, we can receive it within 48 hours time.” The digital age is contributing
to changes in the industry, and the bookstore is using two online sites called Inkling and CafeScribe to provide online textbooks that can be downloaded to iPods and Kindles, Hill said. The store recently learned of a third option called Copia for students to download novels and other required readings they might need. Another common on-campus source for books is the Courtright Memorial Library. Lois Szudy, the library director, suggests that students get novels Lois Szudy and plays through a library director source called OhioLINK. OhioLINK is an online site where people can request books from other Ohio libraries to be delivered to Courtright Memorial Library. “I’ve seen more people (use OhioLINK) to get that kind of book because textbook prices are so high,” Szudy said. “We’ve had OhioLINK since 1998, and I would say that the number of people using it … has gone up every year.”
While OhioLINK is an affordable option to access textbooks, Szudy said it is not recommended for books that will be needed for extended periods of time or that will be used for the whole year. This is because someone else might need the book and reserve it, even if someone else still needs to access it. The library also carries all the textbooks students need for their math, language, science and business classes, but some can be checked out for two hours only if the textbooks remain in the library. Szudy said that if students need a copy of the textbook and it cannot be found anywhere else, they should ask a faculty member if they have an extra copy to borrow. Options to purchase textbooks online are also available. According to data published by the National Association of College Stores, the average price of new textbooks is $65, while used textbooks average at $51. Online sales make up 12.4 percent of total store sales and are showing
We’ve had OhioLINK since 1998, and I would say that the number of people using it has gone up every year.
an increase of about 1 percent each year. Amazon advertised that students can save between 30 and 90 percent on new books and up to 60 percent on e-books. They also offer to buy back books. Additionally, Barnes & Noble advertises that you can save up to 90 percent on textbooks. Szudy said that if students decide to purchase their books online, they need to be careful about which edition of the textbook they purchase. She said that students should look up their textbooks by their International Standard Book Number to ensure they get the right edition. Sometimes students order books online with the same title but a different edition, with different case studies and page numbers. By looking at the book’s ISBN, a student will be able to receive the proper book. Students have different preferences when it comes to sources for textbooks, but Amazon and the bookstore are among the most popular sources. Freshman English and political science major Jim Treyens bought his books from Barnes & Noble and Amazon. “They (both) have discounted prices and you can buy used, and also because they ship well.” Ashley Mann, a sophomore theater major, said, “I normally just get (textbooks) from the bookstore. It’s right on campus, and it’s really convenient.” t&c

Equine center to be renamed after $1.5 million gift
The Austin E. Knowlton Foundation awarded money to Otterbein that will help the program and students
Otterbein exceeded its annual fund goal for the year after receiving a gift from the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation in June. The $1.5 million donation from the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation went to the university’s equine center and secured its naming rights. As a result, the center will be renamed the Austin E. Knowlton Center for Equine Studies. Heidi Tracy, the vice president
& 1. 2.
for institutional advancement, said that this increase in donation numbers could be attributed to just getting the information out there. She also said donations increased by 4 percent in the past three years. The equine center opened in 2009 and was built for $5.2 million. It is currently home to 42 horses and provides riding and academic opportunities for approximately 70 students. The center includes indoor and outdoor riding rings, as well as a cross-country schooling field and multiple pastures and paddocks for horses. The facility also hosts several shows and clinics during the year. Kari Briggs, assistant director of equine studies, said the most
noticeable change due to the donation will be the renaming of the center, as the donation will primarily help the center continue to do what it is already doing. “(The donation) is going to allow us to facilitate what we have already established,” she said. “We aren’t going to see any drastic changes, but we will continue to serve the community and the college itself.” Briggs also said that she thinks the naming gift will breathe new life into the facility and will help to promote the program. “I think what’s changing with this donation is that we’ll be able to move forward in becoming the premiere equestrian facility
that we are striving to be,” she said. One of the reasons why Otterbein was chosen for the donation was because of its reputation. Charles Lindberg, a Board of Trustees member for the Knowlton Foundation, said, “Otterbein is a fine college and we have a lot of respect for Otterbein.” The donation was given on behalf of Austin E. Knowlton, who, before his death in 2003, raised American Saddlebreds at Emerald Farms, located 11 miles north of Otterbein’s equine center. Knowlton was also heavily involved in higher education, as his company facilitated the development of more than 160

opinion 4 Dry campus policy challenged by social media
wednesday, sept. 5, 2012
Tan & Cardinal
A new Twitter account directs students to Otterbein weekend activities and questions the need for a dry campus For the past two weekends, Otterbein partygoers have had their own personal Twitter feed to guide them around campus. An account called Bein’s Brunettes, whose mission is described as “broadcasting the social life of the ’bein through the DENNISON eyes of some SLEEPER beautiful brunettes,” has been visiting different houses and letting students know which houses are having people over or not. And whether or not you agree with them, they’ve done a pretty good job at getting the word out. But it makes me wonder what this says about Otterbein students’ ability to speak freely on a dry campus that often chooses to sweep drinking under the rug rather than address and regulate it. Last year, the T&C ran an article about the blog pOtterbein, which was managed by an Otterbein student. It acted as a counterculture to the norms of Otterbein. The blog created a lot of controversy but was a good example of what happens when students begin to feel isolated from their school. This new Twitter account marks a trend in students using
the Internet to express their feelings and speak freely about Otterbein. I don’t think that Otterbein is some Big Brother-like police state that wants to stomp out free speech, but if there is one aspect of our lives that creates distance between students and the school, that aspect is partying. Obviously on a dry campus, you can’t expect the school to be endorsing activities in which drinking might be involved, but honestly, how long are the school and student body going to be at odds about the weekends? When I came in as a freshman, undercover cops would roam the streets, trying to trick students into telling them if they were drunk and what house they were going to. They even created a fake Facebook account to monitor the weekends. Then the administration wonders why we have a reduced retention rate and why the parking lots are empty on the weekends. The reason this Twitter account exists, which currently has 140 followers, is because we really can’t publicly broadcast our plans on the weekends. As a fraternity member myself, we have always relied on word-of-mouth to get our plans out, which can limit who comes and how many people. This account helps incoming

students ﬁgure out where they can go to meet people on the weekends and which houses are safe, and does so without insulting anyone. So far, I haven’t read anything attacking anybody or any organization. This isn’t about students trying to ruin Otterbein, it’s about people being social and organized. And this way, if something goes wrong at a party, you don’t have to find out the hard way. It’s kind of like that game Whac-A-Mole. At some point, why not just accept that the moles are going to keep popping up, and instead of bashing them in the head with a mallet, why not just say, “OK, mole, I don’t agree with all of your life choices, but instead of trying to get you in legal and academic trouble, just be safe about your mole activities.” Drinking and partying can be dangerous, which is why instead of trying to end it, we should be open about it. This could reduce incidents of sexual assault and alcohol poisoning because students wouldn’t be as nervous
to report it to the proper authorities. I think many students are more likely to guzzle alcoholic evidence before they would ever turn it into an officer, which can be a big problem. Prohibition was a catastrophic failure primarily because our country emphasizes punishment over education. We are in college. Our entire objective is to learn and prepare ourselves for the real world, and in the real world, many people use alcohol. Shocking, I know. In my mind it would make much more sense to work with the students on this issue rather than wasting time and money on enforcing rules that are circumvented daily. But until then, the Internet and social media will continue to be a big part in bringing us together. And as long as there are college students and alcohol, the two are going to ﬁnd a way to get together. t&c DENNISON SLEEPER IS A JUNIOR JOURNALISM MAJOR AND THE OPINION EDITOR FOR t&c.

Edwin Loy Home Designs, started by a 2006 Otterbein graduate, offers vintage furniture and other home decor BY KENDRA SCHWARZ Staff Writer
The rustic smell of history lingers in the air as you move from each item carefully placed on the shelves or hung from the ceiling. Items from old dressers, pearl necklaces, doorknobs used as coat hangers, serving trays used as centerpieces and a lone rack that holds trendy clothes mixed with old-time fashion each contribute to what the store is all about: “an eclectic blend of new and redesigned vintage decor for the home.” When Otterbein alumna Amy Winter opened Edwin Loy Home Designs, a vintage wares shop in Uptown, she said, “It all fell into place.” Winter, who graduated in 2006 with a degree in art, named the shop, located at 12 W. College Ave., after the last names of her great-grandfather and aunt. “I really enjoy the history behind things,” she said. The detail of the shop’s decor makes the space feel homey and personal. The items have a timely look that could make any space feel unique. From first glance, one can tell Winter has an eye for vintage
eye for DesIgn:
interior design. Winter’s aunt, Cathie Edwards, said she and Winter attend estate sales and pursue items that have the potential to be redesigned into something practical with a hint of individuality. “We like to hunt things down,” Edwards said. Winter was involved in track and field at Otterbein as well as the student art group Starving Artists. She took a class that focused on website design her senior year, which made her see her love for marketing a brand and making it her own. As part of her Senior Year Experience, she traveled to Italy, which brought to life the artwork she had been studying in her classes. For a few years after graduation, Winter found herself working as a manager at a dentist’s office, but she said she missed being creative. “The store has a very Anthropologie-esque style, but a little more affordable, which is nice for college students like me,” said Hilary Rowland, a junior nursing major.

CPB will now charge $1 for movie night to fund extra activities BY LAINA THOMPSON Arts & Entertainment Editor
Ever wondered what it would be like to have your own show on WOBN?
If you are looking for something to do this Thursday night, why not grab a group of friends, pile into your car and head down State Street for $1 Movie Night. Wait, $1 Movie Night? The Free Movie Night that we have all enjoyed at Hollywood Studio Theatres at 5996 Westerville Road will now cost current Otterbein students $1. The change was made by the Campus Programming Board, the organization in charge of Free Movie Night. CPB is a student-run organization, and according to Molly Ward, assistant director of the Center for Student Involvement and adviser of the CPB, the decision to charge for this once-free event was made by the students. Their budget is one thing that influenced this decision. “We needed a way to balance our budget this year,” said Emily Edwards, CPB president and junior organizational communication major. “We’ve had a couple cuts ... in order to provide the best entertainment for our students and provide the amount

of programs that our students are used to.” Ward said another thing that inﬂuenced this decision was a student suggestion to the CPB to provide more on-campus events for students. “We wanted to provide additional events throughout the year.” Ward said that all profit from $1 Movie Night will go directly back into the CPB’s budget to provide these additional events. She said the CPB is unsure how the students will react. For junior nursing major Lauren McCabe, the change isn’t all that bad. “It’s only a dollar, but it is more fun if it is free,” she said. However, the change will still affect her decision to go. “I think now I will be more picky about going if I don’t like any of the movies,” McCabe said. Ward said, “We hope that people will still be willing to come to the event and pay a dollar to hang out with their friends and have a good time.” To appease any negative feelings toward the change, the CPB wants to enhance the experience
for students attending the movie nights. For the ﬁrst $1 Movie Night this Thursday, the group will be giving out free popcorn. Either the ﬁrst 200 or 250 students in line will receive a free small cup of popcorn. The amount of students who will receive free popcorn is still being negotiated with the theater. Other promotions the CPB wants to have include other giveaways and theme nights where students will be encouraged to dress up for prizes. The CPB will be holding a promotion on Thursday, where 10 movie vouchers will be hidden around campus. The students who find these vouchers will get in for free. With the extra money this change will provide, the CPB is looking to plan additional programs on campus as well as enhance existing programs “Just based on this movie night, we know that we can have a photo booth at Homecoming and another movie night in the spring,” said Edwards. “Giving $1 to go to all of the new movies is helping us provide new experiences for all of the Otterbein students.” t&c

Game face for freshman athletes
New Otterbein athletes focus on the game rather than nerves BY TURP RICKETTS Staff Writer
The start of a new school year means the start of fall athletics, and for some Otterbein University freshmen, the opportunity to step in right away and contribute to their team’s success. One of the freshmen looking to make an immediate impact is Maddy Shelley, an outside hitter for the volleyball team. An allOhio selection during her senior year at New Philadelphia High School, Shelley is excited to get the season started. “I knew I wanted to play volleyball in college, and that was a big factor in my college search. Now I am just really excited to be on campus and for our ﬁrst match.” The Cardinal volleyball players started the season hosting a tournament in which they split
their matches, going 2-2. Shelley knew she would have jitters going into the tournament, but said she felt it was a natural thing. “It’s natural to be nervous,” Shelley said. “I just have to take that and turn it into good play and help the team in any way possible.” Brandon Shirey is a running back for the Cardinal football team and is looking forward to playing with the special teams this season. The Cardinals opened the season with a 15-0 victory over Gallaudet University. “I go through the game mentally during pregame to try and get rid of any stress and get prepared to contribute when called upon,” Shirey said. Shirey said he feels that the football team should have a winning record come season’s end. He is optimistic that the team will thrive under first-year
head coach Tim Doup. Shirey is also excited for the new experience. “This is completely different than high school football, but luckily the upperclassmen are a great help, and I am always turning to them for guidance.” A third freshman looking to make an immediate contribution is Otterbein soccer player Paco Marty, a defensive midfielder from Miami, Fla. “I am ready to give it my all and do whatever it is the team needs me to, whether that means supporting them on the sidelines or contributing on the field.” Marty understands the pressure that comes with playing a varsity sport at the college level, but isn’t intimidated. “I am just trying my best to not get too nervous and make any mistakes,” Marty said with a laugh. t&c
Preparation proves powerful
With championships to win, athletes took no break over summer BY JORDAN BROWN Staff Writer
Intense summer heat, tough workouts and hot gyms ﬁlled with the smell of sweat and determination are what Otterbein athletes faced this past summer while preparing for the new season. Each team designed a schedule of running and conditioning to be executed throughout an athlete’s summer. The workouts are meant to keep athletes in shape both physically and mentally and to prepare them for the upcoming year of competition. “It not only makes you faster, but stronger,” freshman Jared DeSensi said, referring to the Otterbein football workouts. A grueling workout regimen consisting of three days of lifting and three days of running drills leaves football players with a preview of what is expected for them. Players are required to take a test known as the “300s,” which includes six 60-yard sprints. All players must meet a predetermined time according to their position.
“After doing the summer workouts, you have a mindset that it shouldn’t be too bad,” DeSensi said. But football isn’t the only team working hard. Women’s volleyball barely takes any days off during summer.
Keep track of everything you do. It’s encouraging to see that in Week 1 you were lifting this much weight, and at the end you can do this much more.
Kristen Bennett senior “We get to pick one week of the summer that we take off,” senior Kristen Bennett said. “All other weeks are supposed to be dedicated to the workout program.”
She is motivated during the summer by recording her progress. “Keep track of everything you do. It’s encouraging to see that in Week 1 you were lifting this much weight, and at the end you can do this much more.” Women’s soccer also had no absence of motivation, as coach Brandon Koons told his athletes, “You need to come in the best shape of your life.” Junior Jillian Knox did just that by working religiously over the summer to become a stronger soccer player. “I thought, ‘If you want to do well, you’ve got to do the program.’ ” The team was given packets that included conditioning drills that can be found at a Division I level. Summer workouts, though time consuming and exhausting, can be the driving factor for athletes. “I want to be able to go all the way,” Knox said. “I want to make that one last run to the goal that might win us the game to take us to the championship.”

New head coach Tim Doup implemented the slogan “ONE,” which stands for “Only Now Exists,” as a new outlook for the team.
Former player and coordinator takes the reigns
Formerly an OAC Assistant Coach of the Year, Tim Doup brings more than 20 years of experience to the team BY GRAHAM SHIPPY Staff Writer
For the ﬁrst time in nine years, Otterbein’s football team will be led by a new head coach. Tim Doup, former offensive coordinator of the team and an Otterbein graduate of ’92, took over the program in May after Joe Loth accepted a position at Western Connecticut State University. Doup brings more than 20 years of coaching experience and was named the Ohio Athletic Conference Assistant Coach of the Year in 2008 after leading a Cardinal offense that produced 380 yards and 39 points per game. Doup and the Cardinals opened their season at home last Saturday with a 15-0 victory against Gallaudet, a team they narrowly conquered in overtime last season, and began a new chapter in Otterbein football. How long have you been with the team? This will be my 10th season. I previously spent nine as the offensive coordinator for the team.
What kind of changes have you made for this season? We have a slogan this year of “ONE,” which stands for “Only Now Exists.” We can only focus on one day, one practice and one snap at a time. This slogan helps to make the team more of a uniﬁed front and helps us meet our goal of being more mentally prepared. What are the biggest challenges facing your team this season? The biggest challenge is our depth. Our offensive and defensive lines are not very deep. We lost a good number of seniors from last year and have faced some injuries. We have a lot of younger guys that could end up being backups or starters.
have a lot of experience and are good to go, so I think our defensive line is probably our strong point. How has your incoming class looked so far, and who are the standouts? I’m really happy with this year’s incoming class. I saw a lot of great things during camp from the freshmen, and I definitely expect to have some freshman starters or backups. There are deﬁnitely a few players from the incoming class who can make an impact this season. Freshmen Grant Noppenberger at center and John Vincent at wide receiver are standouts. Artie Douglas and Connor Lucas have also impressed us at the wide receiver position.
In what area do you feel your team is the strongest?
What other hobbies do you have other than coaching football?
Some of our top receivers are injured, so right now it would have to be our defensive line. Although we struggle with depth in this position, our returners
Going to my three children’s sports games. All my children play sports, so when I’m not coaching, I’m busy spending time with my family.

coaching at the high-school level and eventually moved up to college. Coaching football has always been a passion and what I’ve wanted to do.
