FOR SOME, LIFE IS BLACK AND WHITE America and a lot of different countries have had a deep and tragic history of racism. Racism has been

around since the beginning of time. Racism consists of many different types of attitudes and culture differences. Humans are naturally born to be different, thus leading to racism. Some individuals often have a hard time seeing through the skin color of a person. At times, an individual’s cultural background has great impact on how they’re raised and what beliefs are of great value. With this, often comes racism. Some cultural backgrounds are ethnocentric. Meaning, their culture, in their eyes, is of higher statue than others. This results in these individuals looking down upon individuals of other cultures. Often times, this act becomes more specific as the generation’s pass and the ethnocentricity directs its negligence to a specific group of people of the same race. Thus, racism is born. Throughout history two of race groups best known for their struggle for acceptance have been African Americans as well as Jewish people. The holocaust called for the massacre of millions of Jews as Slavery called for the labor and killings of thousands of African Americans. However, although these points in history are long gone from now, racism is still much alive. We see racism in our everyday life. Even though, people assume that the only type of people that are racist are those that have been through a lot and hate life, we often see it in our own generations. Racism is illustrated in the music we listen to the people we share our days with. As science and other productive things grow so does the vocabulary of those who decide to humiliate other cultures. America is one of the most diverse countries in the world, and at the same time has one of the highest rates of racism. Racist words govern the urban cities of the States, and these words are implemented so deep in to peoples mind that they lost the meaning, history and the impact that it has on the targeted people. It is absolutely sad that our generations do not no the meaning of the ‘N’ word for example and that they are fine with tolerating these types of words. Our society and our generation should be more informed when it comes to these types of sensitive topics. Now the question is what can we do to change it? Can we make the change?

DON’T TOLERATE RACIST JOKES, RACIST COMMENTS, OR RACISM AT ALL.

C MMUTER CORNER COLLEGE OF MOUNT SAINT VINCENT

SPRING 2011 INSIDE THIS ISSUE NEW EXCITEMENT TO ALUMNAE PAVILION | DID YOU KNOW COMMUTERS CAN EAT FOR FREE | COMMUTER ASSISTANTS | |SURVIVING MY FIRST SEMESTER AT COLLEGE| COMMUTERS NOT COMMUNICATING |

NEW EXCITEMENT TO ALUMNAE PAVILION The Pavilion was created last year as a commuter friendly lounge and has become a great place to hang out with friends. Whether you want to go somewhere in between classes or take a load off at the end of the day, the Pavilion is the best new hot spot for commuters. Equipped with plenty of seating, the Pavilion now features pool, air hockey and foosball tables. Not to mention, a high definition big screen TV with satellite that offers hundreds of channels! While you’re here you can also grab a snack or drink from one of the many vending machines. With so much to offer the Alumnae Pavilion can serve as a game room, homework setting, or lounge. If you haven’t gotten a chance yet, come check it out! I’ll see you there! DID YOU KNOW COMMUTERS CAN EAT FOR FREE Once a month, the Commuter Assistant Program, and the Office of Student Activities, Leadership and Commuter Life hosts a monthly luncheon and breakfast for commuter students. Many commuters don’t have meal plans, and all that cash handy for breakfast, lunch and/ or dinner at Spellman Cafeteria or Benedicts. In order to accommodate to commuters, the Mount community comes together to serve commuters free breakfast or lunch once a month. Commuters are informed when these events will take place through their dolphinnet e-mail. The breakfast series and luncheon is a time for all commuters to get to know one another and relax. It’s a way to enjoy a free meal and interact with other commuter students. Previous commuter luncheons have included trivia such as Black History Month in which commuters won gift cards and metro cards. The commuter luncheon and breakfast is one of the many programs on campus that allow for open interaction.

SURVIVING MY FIRST SEMESTER AT COLLEGE

The last commuter luncheon of the semester will be May 10 at 12:30 pm and will be a closing celebration. We hope to see you there.

The freshmen have all adjusted by now, and have learned what this college campus has to offer. The beauty of Mount Saint Vincent is the that you can still have the college experience by being a commuter. The goal of the Commuter Assistant program is to attract commuter students to become involved on campus. Many programs and events that are offered are in favor of you!

The Commuter Assistants would like to give a big thanks to all those who attended, and Chartwells for supplying a great meal. GET YOUR LATE NIGHT SNACK ON IN THE ALUMNAE CAFE

Late Night Snack at the Alumnae Cafe Every night from Monday to Thursday from 7pm to 11pm commuters and residents can pass through the Pavilion and purchase a great variety of snacks. The cafe has sandwiches, sushi, coffee, soda, candy, chips, ice- cream and many other late night snacks that are being sold for a reasonable price. You can purchase snacks by using cash or your Mount meal plan. So if you need a break from studying and homework come check out the new cafe on campus!

The fall semester is just about over!!

Rema Sayed is a freshman, Biology major from Riverdale. I asked her to fill me in on her experience at the Mount so far. She is extremely involved on campus, as she is an active member in the science club, the Underground (as a staff-writer and editor), a member of the board of programmers (BOP), the layout editor for the school and the co-editor/co-creator/designer of the school newspaper’s upcoming online newsletter.

Many people feel that the college experience as a commuter student will be similar to high school, including the friend-making process. Rema was one of those people, and stated “I guess I was in for a rude awakening call after the first week when I realized I was going to school with a lot of residential students, and how they were already grouped together. That was a big downfall for me, and it was the big sign that told me to get involved if I want to know people, and if I wanted people to know me.” Unfortunately, there is usually a separation between commuters and resident students. However, Rema is a great example of how to avoid being in this situation! She is always on campus, and even joked- “I’m on campus a lot- so I think I’ve actually convinced people I live somewhere on campus”. Since she lives in walking distance from the school, she feels that even though she is physically away from the campus, part of her is still there. I myself am in walking distance too, so i know what it is like to consider this school like a second home. Rema has become friends with many resident students. “I’ve hung out in their dorms, and I’ve seen and experienced what life on campus is like if I were to live here.” This goes to show that even though you are a commuter, doesn’t mean you can’t share the same experience as a resident student. The College of Mount Saint Vincent is very different than other schools. In high school, I was always told that once we get to college, we will be nothing but a social security number. Anyone who goes here knows that this is not true at all. When I asked Rema what she appreciates most about this campus, she responded with “I love how small this campus is in terms of class sizes. It helps you become familiar with the people you’re with. I love how my professors all know my name, and what I’m about. I also like how everyone tries to have school spirit, and how each club helps each other out.” Rema’s biggest concern on campus is the timing of campus events. They are usually catered towards resident students, as many commuters are unable to attend programs that are held late in the evening, such as

INTERESTED IN WRITING FOR THE NEWSLETTER? E-MAIL: JASMINE.COLON@MOUNTSAINTVINCENT.EDU

Trippin Tuesdays, SWAG, FLAVA, etc. The CA program holds events in the afternoon, where we cater to commuter students. We understand your pain of having to travel home after a long day full of classes, so please be on the lookout commuter events that are geared towards you! Rema has truly taken advantage of what our campus has to offer. “Being a commuter isn’t so bad when you’re involved: you still feel like you’re part of a community when you’re active, which is my goal. I’ve put a lot on my plate, but in the end, I really think it’s worth it.” As Rema said, the best thing to do for yourself is to become involved. There are so many wonderful opportunities on campus, and it is not too late to take part in them! Visit the Office of Student Activities, Leadership and Commuter Life in the Alumnae Pavilion for more information on clubs and events. COMMUTERS NOT COMMUNICATING A little over 50% of The College of Mount Saint Vincent is composed of commuter students. However, the commuter community at the Mount seems to dissipate when it comes to being a presence at school activities outside of the classroom. It’s becoming increasingly challenging to attract commuters to events, and it’s leaving event coordinators baffled, and giving up on trying to bring together commuters. Where are the commuters? Why aren’t they joining in on more events? A stereotype amongst students in regards to commuters is that commuters simply come to class, and then go home right when they’re done. This stereotype, unfortunately, is accurate when it comes to describing Mount commuters. There are so many opportunities around campus for commuters to get involved; yet, there’s still an underlying problem. One commuter, who chose to be anonymous, states that a lot of the interesting, and most appealing events happen around campus late at night, on a school night. “I would love to go to those comedy nights, or even those open mic nights, but they’re so late in the middle of the week when I have to get home and study for an exam the next day. It’s almost unfair to commuters because these events only seem to take into account how easy to is for residents to attend.” Although a lot of the popular events are later into the night, commuters aren’t ignored on campus, despite what many may think.

There are several things the Mount Community does to keep commuters “in the loop.” For example, the College of Mount Saint Vincent has Commuter Assistants, a program designed to keep commuters up-todate with events, and activities that are going on around campus that are designed to keep them from going home straight after class (at reasonable hours, of course!). Commuter Assistants encourage you to put your best foot forward, and enjoy your college experience even though you’re not on campus all the time. Through weekly e-mails, and monthly events, Commuter Assistants really try their best to keep commuters interested, as well as entwined with the campus community. The purpose of the Commuter Assistant program is to bring together commuters for themed events. Unfortunately, some of the events have been falling short on commuters attending, and it’s becoming a puzzle as to why residents are attending commuter events. If you’re a commuter, and you have some ideas for events that you think will attract a lot of other commuters: stop by the Alumnae Pavilion! Commuter Assistants are always curious to hear what you’re interested in, and helping you through any problems you may have that has to do with being a commuter at the Mount. If you can’t stop by, feel free to e-mail the Commuter Assistants at: ca.cmsv@gmail.com. Also Commuters, you shouldn’t shy away from your campus. There are so many opportunities for everyone to branch out, and shine. Go to the club fairs, join the talent shows, or simply come to yoga Monday’s, kickboxing Tuesday’s, and Zumba Wednesday’s! There’s really no reason for a commuter at CMSV not to communicate. DON’T FORGET SIBLINGS WEEKEND 4/29–4/30

DOLPHINS LOVE TO PLAY WITH THEIR FAVORITE TOY — MAN, WHO ALSO SOMETIMES BRINGS OTHER TOYS: BALLS, HULA HOOPS AND RINGS.

THE FISHERMAN FIRST FORM A SQUARE WITH THEIR BOATS. THEY SURROUND THE DOLPHINS WITH A WALL OF SOUND BY PLACING METAL TUBES IN THE WATER AND HITTING THEM WITH SMALL METAL DEVICES. THIS CAUSES THE DOLPHINS TO BECOME DISORIENTED AND STAY IN THE SAME LOCATION, SINCE THEY ARE EXTREMELY SENSITIVE TO LOUD SOUNDS. THE FISHERMEN THEN CLOSE THE SQUARE WITH FISHNETS. THE FOLLOWING DAY, DOLPHIN SPECIALISTS PICK THE HEALTHIEST DOLPHINS TO SELL TO WATER ATTRACTION COMPANIES. THE DOLPHINS THAT ARE LEFT BEHIND ARE KILLED WITH SHARP HARPOONS AND SOLD AS WHALE MEAT.

JAPANESE SURVEYS ESTIMATE 316,935 DOLPHINS IN THE NORTHWEST PACIFIC.

JAPANESE FISHERMEN ARE DOLPHINS MAIN PREDATORS

WHY DO THEY KILL DOLPHINS? “...UNLIKE THE EXPENSIVE WHALE MEAT, DOLPHIN MEAT IS NOT CONSIDERED A DELICACY IN JAPAN... THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS VIEWS DOLPHINS AS PESTS TO BE ERADICATED IN HUGE NUMBERS. ... SINCE DOLPHINS COMPETE WITH WHALES FOR FOOD, KILLING THE COMPETITION IS THEIR WAY OF PRESERVING THE OCEAN’S FISH FOR WHALES SO THEY CAN MAINTAIN THEIR WHALING INDUSTRY."
