Candidates step up for dean of students position By PAIGE VARNER THE RED & BLACK
Students and faculty have one more opportunity to question a candidate for the new dean of students position before the post is filled. Candidate Michele Howard, associate vice chancellor for student affairs and
dean of students at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, will participate in the faculty and staff forum at 2 p.m. today and also the student forum at 3:30 p.m., both in the Tate Theater. The dean of students will be the primary advocate for students at the University, developing relationships with

students and overseeing several student-related enterprises. Howard and four other candidates are vying for the dean of students post now held by Rodney Bennett. Because Bennett is both the dean of students and the vice president for student affairs in the Division of Student
Affairs, he is stepping aside so that someone else can devote all of his or her time to the dean of students position. “He was so busy focusing on the administrative side of the job and things like that it was hard for him to come to work each day and be dean of students,” said Katie Barlow,
who, as the Student Government Association president when the search began, is the co-chair of the screening committee that will appoint the new dean. “He’s solely thinking about us.” The dean of students is on See JOB, Page 3
University chapter ahead of the game By ADINA SOLOMON THE RED & BLACK The national Kappa Alpha Order has finally caught up with the University’s chapter of KA — the tradition of parading in Confederate soldier garb is as dead as the Civil War. Old South Week is a time for KA members to honor the men who founded the fraternity in 1865. For KA’s annual Old South Day during the week, members across the nation previously donned Confederate uniforms to parade on the streets of Athens and escort their dates to the Old South Ball. Several student groups objected, calling the practice insensitive, and the national KA banned wearing Confederate uniforms earlier this month. This prohibition came after an incident last year at the University of Alabama, where members wearing Confederate uniforms paused their parading in front of a black sorority house, the Associated Press reported. But at the University, uniforms were outlawed years ago. “In this world today, everything’s changing rapidly,” said Jefferson Knox, a senior from Augusta and president of the University’s KA chapter. “Everything is under scrutiny.” Five years ago, KA cancelled their Old South day parade to deal with the Confederate uniforms. “It was in our best interest to cancel it,” Knox said. “We didn’t want to take away from the purpose of our parade.” The next year, the parade was there, but the uniforms weren’t. The University’s KA chapter banned members from wearing Confederate attire and decided to changed the name of Old South Day to Founder’s Day. See BAN, Page 3

Adam Newman has come a long way from gay porn. A University alum, Newman moved to New York City in the summer of 2006 to become a comedian — but his first official gig wasn’t anywhere near an open mike. “[The publicist] was like, ‘Hey we need extras to be in this gay porn,’” Newman said. “But hey, it’s part of the journey.” His acting career was short-lived, though, and four years later, he’s man-
aged to break in quite well, with steady gigs up and down the East Coast as well as a job with CollegeHumor.com With training at New York City’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade and four years of stand-up experience, Newman has made a career out of producing viral content — sketches and videos online — while also performing live. “Athens is by far my favorite place to come back to,” he said. “It’s also the only place I can come back to and just perform with my friends at the venue I want.

Harris English may have a 2:30 tee time in the “biggest tournament he’s ever played in,” but that doesn’t mean he’s immune from taking his final exam. English simply had to make accommodations, moving up his HACE 3200 final from 11:15 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. so that he could have enough turnaround time to properly prepare as he and teammate Russell Henley make their professional debut today on their home course. “I’ll probably wake up early, eat some breakfast, study a little, take the test, and then come out here and chill, take it easy, and get ready for my round,” English said. “But I’ll definitely be grinding for that test in the morning.” Attempting to juggle playing in
their first pro event — the Nationwide Tour’s Stadion Athens Classic at the UGA Golf Course — and preparing for upcoming finals, all while attending their last weeks of classes, hasn’t been an easy task for English and Henley. “I have a final on Monday and a presentation that I’m missing [today] that I’m going to have to write a paper for instead, which is going to be not fun,” Henley said. “I wish it was a different time of the year, but at the same time it’s fine. I’m going to make it through it, I just have to do a little studying here and there.” Despite being an amateur player amongst a throng of seasoned professionals, Henley and English’s expectations remain unchanged from a tournament on their collegiate schedule. “I’m playing to win, I’m not afraid to say that,” Henley said. “I don’t play

there are a million people doing this.” With that realization came a change. Though he still remains a big fan of some of the biggest alternative comedians such as David Cross and Zach Galifianakis, Newman discovered a voice that’s equal parts improvised storytelling and jokes. Citing David Sedaris and Louis C.K. as major influences and prominent examples of his stand-up style, Newman has found that the best way to See COMEDIAN, Page 8

Air Force students heed another call By SARA CALDWELL THE RED & BLACK Military service isn’t just about fighting for your country overseas — for some University students, it means serving those in your own backyard. “We did more than 20 service projects this semester,” said Andrew Gay, a junior from Savannah and commander for the Arnold Air Society. “We helped re-landscape the Brooklyn cemetery by clearing debris, we went to the Morningside Assisted Living Center for a social hour and we helped out with BikeAthens, a bicycle recycling shop.” The Arnold Air Society teams up with another group, the Silver Wings, to do some of these projects. Though the Arnold Air Society group is strictly for Air Force ROTC cadets, the Silver Wings program gives others the opportunity to stay involved with members of the Air Force ROTC. “We work alongside Arnold Air Chapter,” said Jessica Guillot, a junior from Montgomery, Ala., and newly-elected Silver Wings regional president. “We plan things for them, for the whole corps. We bring them treats after they work out. We plan morale boosters for them and other things to promote the military.” Guillot comes from a military family, and she said it made sense for her to join a military society. “I think a lot of people have a

Some of our members have no military connection whatsoever.” The University’s Silver Wings program is dedicated to building professionals, Guillot said. “We’re about leadership, professional development, civic awareness,” she said. Three Silver Wings members, along with seven Arnold Air Force

Society members, flew to Seattle, Wash., earlier this month to participate in the National Conclave for the Air Force ROTC instillation. More than 1,000 individuals met for the five-day conference to discuss leadership plans for the coming year. And Guillot said NatCon was a great experience. “In the past few years I’ve been here, we haven’t sent anyone to NatCon,” Guillot said. “I think it’s really important to show how your chapter’s thriving.”
CRIME NOTEBOOK Homeless man barred from campus In the heart of one of the poorest counties in Georgia lies a bubble most University students simply refer to as “campus.” However, one man learned on April 28 what can happen when this bubble is breached. University Police responded to the Thomas Street Art Complex at 1:02 a.m. after a complainant reported hearing arguing. When they arrived, officers found one of the individuals involved in the argument had left, according to University Police Lt. Eric Dellinger. The remaining individual identified himself as homeless. According to Dellinger, the individual said he had

been arguing with a female friend. He also said he had been sleeping in the area. “There was no reason for him to be there, so officers asked him to move along,” Dellinger said. “He was also barred from campus because he had no campus affiliation.” Because campus lies in a poorer community, Dellinger said this kind of thing is not unusual. “Athens has a huge homeless population, so we run into it from time to time,” he said. “But I wouldn’t say it’s a huge problem. If someone complains, we will try to talk to the individuals. Most are respectful and do what we ask.” — Compiled by Jacob Demmitt

University maps campus trees By DANIEL SHIREY THE RED & BLACK The people walking around campus with large antennae sticking out of their bright yellow backpacks arenâ€™t Ghostbusters, and they arenâ€™t trying to contact aliens. Theyâ€™re inventorying trees on campus for the first time ever. The University Grounds Department has worked on the project for several years, but the bulk of the work began in 2009, when the Grounds Department received the Urban and Community Forestry Grant from the U.S. Forestry Commission. â€œWe received a grant for $17,000, which was a matching grant, and that allowed us to basically move ahead full steam last year, so weâ€™ve been really working on it with an intern for a year now,â€? said Jennifer Perissi, who works for the Grounds Department on the project. The inventory uses GPS to locate all mature trees in main campus areas. The data gathered â€” including details about general tree health and species identification â€” goes on a specialized form that allows the information to be entered into the GPS. Information from the GPS then goes into the Universityâ€™s Geographic Information System database, which is a mapping
tool that takes GPS coordinates and puts them in the form of a map. â€œThe campus has a really extensive GIS database, and weâ€™ve tried to capture the trees,â€? Perissi said. â€œBut itâ€™s difficult because it changes so frequently, or more so than you would think. This a more concerted effort to get all the trees at one time, and we still have several areas that probably wonâ€™t be included in this initial pass, like housing and off campus properties.â€? Connie Head, a consultant hired by the Grounds Department to aid in the project, has been doing a lot of the evaluation of individual trees, looking at root systems, soil conditions, tree health and structure. Head also looks at the widths and heights of the crown â€” which is the canopy of the tree. This helps determine the ecological value of the trees, such as carbon intake, the amount of stormwater they can intercept and energy savings. The main purpose, however, is for planning, research and maintenance. Because of the projectâ€™s ongoing nature â€” 5,000 trees have already been inventoried and mapped â€” some of the information is already being used. â€œOne thing thatâ€™s been going on concurrently that this survey has been help-
ing us with is the select sustainable tree planting,â€? Perissi said. â€œA donation was made last year for 200 trees to be planted in 2009 to 2010, so we were able to use the trees that were surveyed and the locations to start to find places on campus where we could plant trees.â€? After the database is complete, the Grounds Department hopes to make the information available to anyone through a website with an interactive map. â€œYou could click on individual trees or you could select, say, all of the tulip poplars on campus and it would highlight them. That would be amazing for people who are interested in forestry and urban forestry projects,â€? Perissi said. For now, though, the information is not complete and is housed on the Grounds Departmentâ€™s server. However, it is available upon request. The department hopes to have most of the work done â€” which means having all trees inventoried from the instructional areas of North, South and central campus â€” by the end of August, which coincides with the end of the grant cycle. The Grounds Department hopes to have the website and map running within the next year. â€œI canâ€™t wait to see,â€? Perissi said. â€œI really hope that people use the data.â€?

the tradition of Old South day without offending someone else,â€? Davis said. Xavier Watson, a junior from Newnan, said he doesnâ€™t think KA should have banned the uniforms. â€œYou canâ€™t change the history of Georgia,â€? Watson said. The national KA took four years to match the University KAâ€™s policies, but Knox said banning the uniforms is positive for all of the chapters across the

‘Bigotry’ not right of Christian group T
axpayers footing the bill for university students have a right to expect we will become well-rounded citizens who enrich America. Paying for a university to churn out bigoted and narrow-minded adults should not be the taxpayers’ responsibility. Whether taxpayers should pay for the education of both bigots and well-rounded citizens is now at the core of an important Supreme Court case. Did the University of California’s Hastings College of the Law violate a student group’s constitutional rights to freely associate with like-minded individuals by denying the group official recognition and funding? The Christian Legal Society was denied student organization status because it violated the school’s anti-discrimination policy. It required members to sign a statement of faith saying it was sinful to “engage in sexual conduct outside of a traditional marriage.” Court documents reveal its meaning — openly-gay students could not be part of the society. This case could determine whether a tax-funded college or university can deny club status to groups that discriminate based on race, religion, sex, national origin and sexual orientation. Whether or not those California Christians win, they should change their policy. Their discriminatory policies don’t just hurt the club by denying access to student fees and booths at the student organization fair. Members of CLS lose the opportunity to meet people with different perspectives, but many similar values. College student organizations should work to increase, not decrease,
diversity. A student who doesn’t identify with the name of a club or relate to its members will not usually join. For this reason, students and clubs miss out on mutually-beneficial experiences when they don’t promote diversity. I joined the student chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists here on campus for the programming experiences, but I gained much more than career tips. Because I am a part of the majority, I am not usually aware of my race. In NABJ, I learned what it felt like to be the only white female in a room — a rare experience for me. I heard the thoughts and feelings of minority students regarding the persistent racism in this country. I learned to not assume that every person in the room has had cultural experiences similar to mine. Faith-based groups should not change their beliefs. But they should open their minds in college. This is a diverse country. If we want to get anything done, we have to collaborate. How are we going to work with people different from ourselves if we hide from anyone who does not look, believe or think like us? If a group is not interested in understanding and wants to maintain the status quo, then they are free to do so. But our taxes and student activity fees shouldn’t pay for it. —Rhiannon McClatchey is a senior from Atlanta majoring in magazines
Suburbanites cannot claim Atlanta status
meet a new person, be it in class, downtown, or riding the Orbit bus. Small talk ensues and we ask each others’ hometowns. I reply “Atlanta,” and the other person replies, “Oh, me too! I live in Marietta/Alpharetta/ insert any number of other ‘ettas.’” This is an abomination, and I won’t stand for it anymore. Those places are not Atlanta. When I say “Atlanta,” I mean real Atlanta. I mean I can smell the stink from the zoo if the wind is blowing the right way on a hot summer day. I can hear the Tomahawk Chop from Turner Field if I listen closely. I can see a pretty spectacular view of the skyline right from my front porch. I am an Atlantan. The city positively runs through my blood. I love everything about being born and raised in the city, which is why it is so upsetting to hear the name of my beloved hometown on the lips of out-of-towners who probably haven’t had the experiences I have. I have lived in the same modest 1920s bungalow my entire life. Though suburban neighborhoods often offer security in subdivisions and McMansions, I would never trade my cozy home for a new, sterile
History degrees lack vocational track I
wonder every day what I am going to do with a history degree. It’s boring; it’s nerdy; it’s archaic; it’s not useful. Get a real job, they say. I assure you, I want a real job. I have dreams like anyone else, but I also know how the job market in America is faring because I check the news when there is nothing fun I could rather do. So if I want a real job, why did I choose a degree in the humanities? While Areas A-E on our transcripts require a basic education in all academic areas, colleges have diverged in many new directions. Majors at UGA include accounting, marketing and pharmacy. No thanks, I said to the careers whose demands will never cease. I like struggling, wandering, worrying. But I didn’t always enjoy the promise of a bleak and foggy future. No, I was once a business major, then psychology, English education and Japanese. In the end, though, I could not help but to hate studying any single subject for too long. If I must get a degree, I thought, I will just learn what has happened so far. If you think there is something for everyone in the job market, you may be right. But attending the Government/Non-Profit Jobs Fair last month only lowered my morale. I got funny looks and disappoint-

ed smirks from representatives all over Tate’s Grand Hall when they found out my major. I only learned once I arrived that portfolios and shiny shoes were the typical fare of an on-campus job-seeker. I have neither. Trained in no specific vocation, I thought it best to market myself as a good writer and communicator. I’m sure we have a spot for you somewhere, reps told me. Who doesn’t need writers? I appreciated their encouragement, but we both knew they were reaching. What they want, or what they expect, are students with a narrower vocational track. I don’t blame the recruiters, and I was honestly not surprised by the awkward looks. But if a humanities degree can’t land me a high-paying job, what does it mean to be a well-rounded young adult in the 21st century? The Chronicle for Higher Education demands students like me avoid graduate school for the humanities. My own professors strongly suggest the same. Why does it feel like education of this sort no longer has value?

Charging for weight discriminatory tactic Ms. Samantha Shelton, In response to your column (“Charge passengers based on weight,” April 28), using the cover story of capitalism does not make charging passengers by weight any less discriminatory. Sure, the initial targets of this tactic will be people who weigh perhaps more than their doctor might recommend. But what about persons who have a physical disability, are infirm or have reached an age in life where they are no longer independently mobile? Do you propose that we charge them for their wheelchair or other accoutrements associated with their ability level? This would be a gold mine. What about parents, single or otherwise, whose children are under two and therefore are not required to have a separate ticket? Now they can be charged for their baby and their stroller. Or what about men in general? As a gender, on average, they weigh more than women. What about cultures who celebrate women (or men) who are of a more ample body size? Too bad — their cultural preferences will just have to cost them more to fly so that your checkbook is not inconvenienced. Let’s review. Based on my accounting, you’ve managed to engender discriminatory practices against the following groups: people of a certain size, people of a differing ability level, the elderly, the

My guess is, when we speak in dollar signs, humanities is a loan word at best; that is, my education is priceless to me, but lackluster on a résumé. When we talk jobs, history majors get left in the dust. A switch of focus may be necessary to define the purpose of a humanities degree. My education is priceless. It took a range of mediocre grades and some self-motivation, but my professors have prepared me to survive nearly anywhere in the world as an adult, not to mention the ability to read between its lines. I have grown up because of my studies. My options are open, for better or worse. And to a degree, I feel allowed to dream. I think the same is true of all students in any college, to be sure. I only mean that the curriculum of a strong history program, one in which you learn how to learn is exemplary. I sound like a liberal arts booster who means only to console himself with the promise of intellect. And I have no guarantees that my degree will prove valuable professionally. But I am prepared to face the world in a way I could not have foreseen prior to my education.

infirm, parents (single and otherwise), men and people of certain cultures. And you did it all while not thinking of yourself as someone who discriminates. Impressive. Isn’t capitalism great? And hey, while we’re on a roll, why don’t we reform the University tuition structure? According to your maxim of “paying for what you use,” we should be charging people with lower IQs more tuition, since it ostensibly costs more to educate them. Ridiculous. I would have thought that a senior working toward a degree in women’s studies would have more knowledge of and sensitivity to the structures of power, domination and discrimination in society. Apparently not. KELLY MCFADEN Graduate student, Decatur Social foundations of education
Sports column example of ‘ignorant’ journalism I am a regular reader of The Red & Black, and I was appalled to read the column, “Player’s explanations make matters worse,” by Zach Dillard published on April 28. To compare Aron White’s letter to digging a hole with a shovel was ignorant and a prime example of

deplorable journalism. The football team is not “in a hole.” If you look back on the past couple of years, four players getting in trouble with the law is less than average, and I applaud Coach Mark Richt for finally getting strict on his players for their actions. Second, Aron was responding to an ignorant column written by a fellow student (Ms. Bailey Keiger). Dillard said he was making excuses, but had no argument to back up this point, and instead tried to deflect attention with a statistic about football players’ SAT scores. Third, to say this football team “has been an embarrassment to the University of Georgia” is demeaning and uncalled for. Check your statistics. The University of Alabama has already had three players arrested this year, and the University of Florida averages five players arrested every year. According to your logic, both of these teams are embarrassments to their respective schools. Fourth, I do not personally know White, but from reading the article it appeared he was merely defending the team and not making excuses. Most students, contrary to Mr. Dillard’s opinion, passionately support their football team. GARY CASEY Sophomore, Duluth Pre-business

World travel on grad’s horizon Scholarship launches trip By SARAH GIARRATANA THE RED & BLACK

S Senior Mary Catherine Hawks, center, works with children while she prepares for a job with the Department of Family and Children Services.
Graduate to help abused kids By ASPEN SMITH THE RED & BLACK With graduation just around the corner, University senior Mary Catherine Hawks is gearing up for more than just a cap and gown. Despite a sour job market, Hawks has found a place to begin pursuing her career goals. On May 16, Hawks will start her first post-graduation job as the case manager for the Athens-Clarke County Department of Family and Children Services. With a major in social work, she looks forward to helping provide safer homes and living conditions for children living in abusive circumstances. “I think it’s definitely a good job,” she said. “I’ll be doing something with the population I want to work with.” As of now, Hawks is unsure whether she will be
working in the child abuse investigations department or in the foster care and adoption department. Of the two, she said she would rather work in foster care and adoption because she would be able to get to know the kids she works with. “It’s more of a helping role instead of an investigatory role,” she said. “I can form more stable relationships with children.” By interning for a year with the Madison County Department of Family and Children Services, Hawks gained experience in her field, which she said has trained her for her new job. She said University organizations also prepared her for the workplace. Hawks served as secretary for the service sorority Gamma Sigma Sigma, a resident assistant for Brumby and a representative for Volunteer UGA.
She also participated in Alternative Spring Break. But her academic career may not be over yet. Hawks said she may pursue law school or graduate school for social work after she gets some experience. “I’d like to go back to school,” she said. “I’m taking a work break.” Ally Walls, a senior in Gamma Sigma Sigma, said she knows many seniors with little luck finding jobs. “The economy is definitely on everyone’s mind,” she said. “The people who have found jobs are pretty relieved.” Hawks is one of the fortunate ones. Walls said social work is the perfect field for Hawks because of her concern for people. “I think Mary Catherine has a desire to help people in everything she does,” Walls said. “People will be able to see that in her.”
With her bright blonde hair pulled back, a wide smile and a camera in one hand, University alumna Natalie Webb is a force to be reckoned with. Selected for STA Travel’s 2010 World Traveler Internship, Webb and Chicago-resident Casey Hudetz will spend three months visiting an array of countries including such exotic locales as Peru, Brazil, Australia, Thailand, Japan, Turkey, Egypt and multiple nations in Western Europe. Applying on a whim after finding the internship through her brother’s Facebook, Webb’s decision to apply led to what she described as a “dream come true.” “When I found out, just wow, I was like, ‘I believe in miracles,’” Webb said. “My mom screamed on the phone and started tearing up because she knows it was such a dream of mine, and to have a dream like that come true was such a surreal feeling.” All expenses for the trip are paid, and both Hudetz and Webb will spend their trip blogging, taking photos and making videos of their experiences. STA will post these items online at worldtravelerintern.com. Webb grew up watching shows on The Travel Channel, and she said she’s wanted to be a travel host since age 5. “In an ideal world, I’d love to be part of the production or behind the scenes,” Webb said of working in travel media. “I think this could be a really good thing to get that foot in the door or will be a really great experience that I can take
to work at any sort of travel PR agency.” After graduating in 2008 with a degree in public relations, Webb spent one summer working in the marketing field and two years working for the Wesley Foundation’s Freshman Ministry at the University. “I will be watching every single blog post and video post, without a doubt,” Wesley’s Freshman Ministry Director Stephen Byerly said. “Natalie Webb has changed peoples’ lives and will continue to do so.” Driven by an urge to connect with people and explore the world’s diversity, Webb fostered a love of travel before even thinking about the internship. She has already traveled to 14 countries in her lifetime. “I think travel is an incredible opportunity to expand your horizons and be immersed into culture,” Webb said. “I did study abroad with UGA at Oxford and UGA España. You are just exposed to so many different cultures of people, but you also discover that life is so similar.” Even in the middle of a busy workday — with neon poster scraps, craft supplies and stacks of food covering the buildings at the Wesley Foundation —
Webb maintains her passion for people and students. “Natalie impacted the entire ministry just with her light and joy,” Byerly said. “When she walks in the room, people are just happier, full of joy and have smiles on their faces. Natalie has all this light within her, and she’s going to take that wherever she goes.” Webb said she is motivated to continue to tour the world because of the intimate connections she can make with different people across nations and cultures. “Go and see different places in the world just to be able to understand that you are a part of something so much bigger,” Webb advised. “The world doesn’t revolve around the Athens bubble that sometimes I feel we can get caught up in.” Both interns will start their trips May 31, and Webb said she is excited but apprehensive about such a major change. “I’ve been in Athens for six years, and I have two weeks before this massive life change,” Webb said. “It’s a little overwhelming, but the benefits outweigh the costs. I couldn’t really think of a better job, and I am so pumped.”

COMEDIAN: Performs on a whim ¢ From Page 1 His process is often just an off-the-cuff listing of interesting experiences. Newman frequently takes the stage with little more than a list of bulletpoints, which he then works through onstage. Those stories that stick are then developed more — he works on the rhythm and adds more detail.
“It’s what every comic should aspire for — to be as relatable as possible, and as funny,” Newman said. His easy-going storytelling method has helped him stand out from the pack, and has earned him notice from the current crop of Athens comedians. Hitting the stage again in the Classic City,
Newman promises his current live show displays his years of experience and improvement — and that he’s not the nervous beginner who first played Athens as a student almost four years ago. “It’s going to be a hilarious comedy show,” he said. “If [you] haven’t seen live comedy, come out and see it. Comedy is better when it’s live.”

S Au pairs teach children English, act as nannies and perform light housekeeping in exchange for free room and board in foreign countries.
Au pairs baby-sit abroad By ASHLEY STRICKLAND THE RED & BLACK This summer, University students will be spending their days soaking up the sun in exotic locations, speaking in foreign tongues and receiving stipends while they absorb the culture of some of the most scenic places on earth. No, it’s not study abroad. These students plan to au pair. Au pairs usually live with a host family and take care of their children. It includes duties similar to a nanny, involving some sort of light housekeeping, but mainly requires the au pair spend time with the children and encourage them to learn and converse in English. For people who choose to au pair, the benefits far outweigh the light cleaning and looking after the kids. “The possibility of living in another country — in Paris — was too great to pass up,” Samantha Hagood, Spanish instructor, said. “I was only 23 at the time and didn’t have any real ties [in Athens], so it seemed like perfect timing. I had also studied French for about eight
years when this opportunity came up, so I was thrilled at the opportunity to use and improve my language skills.” Hagood heard about the opportunity from a friend who had previously stayed with the family, although most au pairs are placed through agencies. Hagood spent her time with the family’s 6-yearold, Iris, picking her up for lunch and then spending afternoons in the local park. The two would return home, where Hagood made sure Iris and her older sisters, Marie and Garance, finished their homework while she cooked dinner. During her stay in Paris, Hagood realized she was accomplishing more than just being an au pair. “Most of the time, I honestly felt like I was being paid to eat good bread and look at beautiful buildings,” Hagood said. “Most of all, living on my own and so far from the oversight of my parents really helped me grow as an adult. Knowing that I could make my way in such a big city, an environment that I wasn’t used to at all, gave me a lot of confidence. I truly stepped out
of my comfort zone when I went to Paris.” University senior Emily Middendorf plans to be an au pair starting this summer in Spain. After graduating in May, the experience will allow her to determine what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Middendorf is undeterred by her expected duties as an au pair. “I will be a part of their family and help out and contribute like any other family member,” Middendorf said. “I’ll be working five hours a day, five days a week. The rest is free time to do what I want.” Middendorf wants to pursue a master’s in Spanish literature and culture and believes being an au pair and living in Spain for a year will aid her in graduate school. She also looks forward to connecting with the people in her new community. “I am very passionate about meeting new people and forming new relationships,” she said. “What I am passionate about is fostering the sense of community between people because then people start to look out for one another.”

Reading day rave rocks Ciné Accidentals take third spot in nation-wide competition ROCK AND RAVE
What: Music and dance party When: Friday at 11 p.m. Where: Ciné Price: $6
By MATT EVANS THE RED & BLACK
By ADAM CARLSON THE RED & BLACK Forget studying — Reading Day is for dancing. Brian McGaw, a senior who performs under the name Aman Amun, and his manager Chris Nardone, a senior majoring in finance, have organized “Reading Day Rock and Rave.” The rave will be a music and dance party which will meld the typical Friday night band performance with an atypical location — Ciné. Aman Amun said the performance is “going to be a high-energy audiovisual experience.” As an art student at the University, Aman Amun’s style is shaped by a variety of non-musical influences. It is these influences that have largely separated him from many other musicians in Athens, he said. He said finding the right space to perform has occasionally proven to be a difficult task. “All of the places for this project are a little weird because people who go to the venues are expecting a traditional show,” he said. A standard performance by Aman Amun incorporates things that are decidedly non-traditional. His performances include elements such as virtual instruments and audienceinvolvement. For example, for his latest show, McGaw plays on mounting an iPhone to his chest, using the light it emits as a counterpoint to his music. He’s even created a virtual version of a Monome, which is a controller for electronic music. At Ciné, Athens’ bar, café and cinema, he hopes he’ll be able to pull it off. If nothing else, the space lends itself to nonconformity. “It’s both a fine arts venue and a dance, arty venue,” he said. “I’m excited to see how it goes.” Also performing will be Electa Villain. The collaboration is a product of wanting to diversify the sound. “We wanted kind of a contrasting artist,” Nardone said. “He seemed to fit the whole rock and rave thing.” The band’s style serves to raise Aman Amun’s energy level as well. “I thought they would be a good addition to the show because not only are they talented, their music is really high-energy,” McGaw said. Together the hope is that the sounds will complement one another, allowing the audience to sample either or both, and to raise the profile of each band. For both Nardone and Aman Amun, the show is a chance to become more well-known. “Brian is really on the verge of breaking out, and I want to help him,” he said. Aman Amun’s dense, experimental techno sound has specific goals: to increase the visibility of the nature of performing and “to blur the line between performer and performance.” “I’m really trying to find ways to depict what this performance is,” McGaw said. “This is a good way of taking [something] that is usually behind a table and showing it to the audience.” Aman Amun takes his name from an ancient Egyptian deity that represented both the essential and the hidden — something he says fits in with these goals. When it comes to making and performing music, Aman Amun aims to explore those two concepts by illustrating the nature of composing and visualizing music. Of course, he also aims to leave his audience feeling good by deepening their enjoyment and connection to his music. The response may be individual, but the feeling should be universal. “I want to take the experience and make it more transcendental,” McGaw said. “You can watch or you can dance or you can do something completely different.”

Backstage at New York’s Lincoln Center last Saturday night, the UGA Accidentals waited anxiously for their turn to compete in this year’s International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. After taking third, they got texts from friends, family and, surprisingly, other acappella teams that were their enemies through the season. “It’s been amazing — the amount of support we’ve gotten this year from other teams throughout the South,” said Tyler Reed, a junior from Lawrenceville, who has been with the Accidentals since his freshman year. “People we had beat in previous rounds of the competition kept sending us stuff all throughout the weekend, like ‘go get ’em’ or ‘beat SoCal for us, you guys deserve this.’” Going into the weekend, even Shane Fuhrman, a graduate student who doubles as the group’s director, knew that a win at finals would be tough. “You see, at this point everybody is really, really good, so it’s not always a matter of singing talent,” Fuhrman said. “You really have to be great — not good — at everything and let all of your singers’ talent shine through.” After winning at the quarterfinals in February and the semifinals in March, the Accidentals advanced to the finals, where they represented the South against five other groups from other regions of the country. The Accidentals chose to treat their weekend in New York as both a competition and a vacation, touring the city and, of course, singing while they toured. Come Saturday, though, the mood was entirely different as the sudden reality of the night’s competition hit. Hours before the show, the Accidentals gathered backstage to talk about the year and the impact it had on each group member. “There were tears, there was
UGAPALOOZA When: 8 tonight Where: UGA Chapel Price: $5 laughter and goofing off — I mean, it was just sort of our time to take in what we had accomplished and how far we had come this year,” Reed said. “Afterwards, though, we left from there with a newfound determination, not just to win, but to put on a performance that was better than anything we had done before.” At the end of the night, the Accidentals walked away with second runner-up, beat only by USC’s SoCal VoCals and Berklee’s Pitch Slapped. Despite losing overall, coming out of the Lincoln Center on Saturday night, Langdon Quin left with the award for best soloist for his performance in “Come Together,” and Schafer Gray for best vocal percussionist, making the Accidentals the winningest group of the night. Reflecting back on the weekend, Reed said he was convinced that their performance that night was the best in the 36-year history of the Accidentals.” Even now, after a long year has officially come to a close for the Accidentals, they are already performing again tonight at UGAPALOOZA, alongside the other two University acappella groups, With Someone Else’s Money and Noteworthy. They will be performing songs from the competition as well as new songs. The end of this school year presents a bittersweet situation for the Accidentals, as five seniors are graduating in May. To fill these places, though, the Accidentals are having auditions tomorrow, starting at 5 p.m. in room 304 of the School of Music. “Usually we have two or three leave, but never five, and these are some pretty big shoes to fill,” Reed said.

Eight-run sixth powers Georgia to comeback win Seniors BASEBALL
By DREW KANN THE RED & BLACK
The Diamond Dogs made it clear Wednesday night that there is still plenty of fight left in this battle-weary bunch. After trailing the We s t e rn Ca rol i na Catamounts (25-14-1) through six innings, the Bulldogs (13-29) clawed their way back from a fiverun deficit. The Bulldog victory began as the team put together an eight-run, sixth-inning explosion to earn a 13-10 victory, snapping the squad’s four-game losing streak. The eight-run inning tied the largest single-inning offensive output of the season. The season record was set in the seventh inning of the team’s home opener against Presbyterian on Feb. 24. “That was a great way to win it,” said freshman shortstop Kyle Farmer. “We started swinging the bats late in the game. They had us on the ropes early — when we scored one run, they scored three — but it was good to see us swing the bats.” The back-and-forth affair got started after the Catamounts took a 1-0 lead in the first. Freshman left fielder Zach Taylor evened the score in the bottom of the second,
hammering his first career home run off the right field scoreboard. Redshirt freshman Zach Laughlin, who replaced starter Alex McRee in the third, quickly ran into trouble when he hit Western Carolina second baseman Matt Johns with a pitch with two runners on board to load the bases. The Catamounts’ next batter then sent a hard-hit line drive to the left-field corner to score three runs, putting Western Carolina back in front 4-1. The Bulldogs responded in the bottom half of the third with an RBI single by Levi Hyams, cutting the Catamount lead to 4-2. Western Carolina continued adding runs in the fourth against Georgia right-hander Eric Swegman before designated hitter Christian Glisson blasted his third home run of the season in the Georgia half of the inning, making the score 6-3. Georgia added one more run in the fifth, before the Catamounts blew things back open with a three-run sixth inning to take a commanding 9-4 lead. But in the bottom of

ASHLEY STRICKLAND | The Red & Black
S Georgia’s lineup, led by sophomore second baseman Levi Hyams (3), put together a season-high eight-run comeback to defeat the Western Carolina Catamounts 13-10 Wednesday night. the sixth inning, the Bulldog bats sprang to life in a way Georgia fans haven’t seen all season, capitalizing on two Catamount walks with six hits to produce an eightrun outburst. Todd Hankins sparked the Georgia scoring onslaught with one out when he smashed a shot off of the top of the left center field wall, scoring three to trim the Western Carolina lead to two. Two batters later, Hyams sent his second
home run of the season to straight-away center, a two-run blast that knotted the score at 9-9. “I really wasn’t even trying to hit it, I was just trying to stay focused and try to get a good pitch to hit,” said Hyams. “I was just glad I could help out the team and get some momentum going in that inning.” Georgia added three more runs on singles by catcher Brett DeLoach and pinch hitter Kevin Ruiz, as well as a
Catamount wild pitch to claim a 12-9 lead. Freshman Cooper Moseley got the call to finish off the Catamounts in the ninth, earning his fourth save of the season. “We’re never going to lose hope,” said freshman Kyle Farmer. “We’re a team that when we get in the locker room after we lose, we’re all upset but we know we can come back and win because we know we’re a good team, we just haven’t put everything together.”
