CSU football players awaiting trial
Classes we wish were offered online
By Kaitie Huss The Rocky Mountain Collegian
CSU football players DeAndre “Dre” Elliot and Cory James, who were involved in a sexual offense case in March of this year, still await trial. The next court date is scheduled for August 13 at 1:30 p.m., according to the Larimer County Clerk’s office. Elliot is charged with three misdemeanor crimes including one count of unlawful sexual contact and two counts of second degree criminal trespass. James faces charges of three counts criminal trespass. According to a police report, the offense took place on March 31 at 1 a.m. at the ZTA sorority house in Fort Collins. A ZTA member claims a male identified as DeAndre Elliot entered her room wanting to have sex with her. Another ZTA member claims, according to the report, that Elliot entered the bathroom. He then, “… placed his hand up her skirt and touched her on the buttocks,” the police report stated. ZTA member Megan Pattee told police that she and a friend were sitting in the family room area around midnight on the night of the incident, after attending a social event with the PKA fraternity. The report states that they were waiting for a pizza to arrive when they noticed a group of males also sitting in the dining area. According to the report, “She said the males ‘seemed nice.’” Megan said afterward when she was talking to her friends about what had happened, no one could say exactly how the males got into the house, that they had to be let in because all of the doors lock when you leave. It was then then she noticed another black male come down from upstairs. ZTA member Sara Crews told police, “they can’t bring people upstairs,” according to the report. The males were identified as Corey James and DeAndre Elliot. The case is currently awaiting trial. Thus far, CSU has declined comment as to disciplinary actions made by the university.

With Colorado quickly becoming one of the go-to states for issues concerning hydraulic fracturing and natural gas, Gov. Bill Ritter and a team of CSU experts were invited to participate in a special seminar in California addressing many of those concerns. According to civil engineering Associate Professor Ken Carlson, who was among those who attended the seminar, industry leaders and environment groups continue to look to Colorado for fracking because of the state’s significant activity in shale oil and gas development. “Colorado has gained a well respected reputation as a state that has worked very hard to create policies and rules in the oil and gas industry that protect the environ-

CSU sending off DeLoach with style
University will host public event in celebration of 2012 Olympian By Kyle Grabowski The Rocky Mountain Collegian Janay DeLoach represented CSU for four years as an All-American long jumper. Now as she goes to represent the USA in London for the Olympics, CSU wants to celebrate her success with the public. The university is hosting a send-off event for DeLoach before she leaves for London at the Glen Morris Field House at 4:30 p.m. Friday. The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided. “She represents everything that is great about CSU. From the athletics and academic standpoint, she’s top of the class,” Vice President for External Relations Tony Phifer said. “You just want to celebrate that.” Phifer said the university hadn’t done enough to celebrate its recent Olympians Casey Malone and Loree Smith, but DeLoach’s close ties with CSU warrants the recognition. In addition to her success on the track, DeLoach has earned her undergraduate and master’s degrees from
CSU and currently volunteers with the CSU track program as an assistant coach. “We want that type of person around our young athletes to help coach them up technically but also in life, just the way she carries herself,” CSU track coach Brian Bedard said. “She’s very confident but very humble at the same time, which is a unique combination.” Phifer would “love it” to have 100 people show up, but is certainly hoping there are more. “We’ve never done anything exactly like this that I can recall,” Phifer said. “What I would really love to see is a lot of young kids to be there and see and interact with Janay." In order to help facilitate that youth, the university invited the members of the Fort Collins Track Club to attend the event and see DeLoach off. The club plans to have as many of its members attend as possible because it recognizes the importance of the event. “Most of our athletes realize what a commitment both in talent and hard
work it takes to get that level,” Dennis Markham, Fort Collins Track Club head coach, said. “We all really want to let her know that not only is the local track team behind her but the whole community is behind her.” DeLoach placed third in Lucerne, Switzerland on Tuesday and will be flying back to the U.S. following her competition. The send-off event Friday fit in the schedule DeLoach and her coach Tim Cawley developed after she qualified for the Olympics. “The plan is to have her come back from these meets in Europe, be able to sleep in her own bed and rest because travelling is pretty hard on you, and get in a good training period before she heads back over” Bedard said. “This is all part of Janay and Coach Cawley’s plan.” The event should primarily be a positive experience for the Fort Collins community and give them the chance to celebrate Deloach’s achievements. “Janay is somebody worth celebrating,” Phifer said. “She’s a terrific role model.” Producer Kyle Grabowski can be reached at email@example.com.
CSU experts, Ritter attend fracking seminar By Sarah Fenton Contributor to The Collegian

ment while collaborating with all stakeholders involved in the industry,” said Maur Dobbie, Assistant Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy. Commonly known as fracking, hydraulic fracturing is a process that is used to break up shale rock deep underground in order to collect oil and natural gas from reserves. “Think of a solid block of rock that has pockets of oil and gas embedded in it, but since the pockets are small, it is difficult to collect the resources,” Carlson said in an email. “If I break up the rock, the fluids then have the pores and fractures to flow to a collection point.” According to Carlson the issues that make fracking projects so controversial are the ways they affect the land, water, air and community
around job sites. The process uses great amounts of water so it competes with other uses for the resource. In addition to water concerns, it is not uncommon for fracking operations to release harmful gases into the air. Fracking also creates land disturbances and has been known to cause minor earthquakes. Finally one of the biggest concerns is how the process, large amounts of truck traffic and noise impact the community around job sites. Although these concerns require a great deal of thought and deliberation through seminars like the one Ritter and the CSU team attended earlier in the month, Carlson says many fracking benefits do exist. Principally, fracking can boost the economy in several ways including bringing in an influx of job creation. Carlson
also said that in many cases, misinformation about fracking spreads quickly meaning that there is a greater need for the community to be properly educated regarding the industry. “The public should be edu-
cated enough to know the difference between misinformation intended to scare people and real concerns. The public should also feel a responsibility to communicate with elected See fracking on Page 6

Community Briefs Colorado State scientist co-authors Antarctica policy forum article
Tony Frank offers last chance for public input on CSU stadium
Diana Wall, a Colorado State researcher, University Distinguished Professor and director of the university’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability, co-authored a policy forum article which presented a call-toaction to address the environmental changes faced in Antarctica. Wall, who has spent 22 seasons studying the response of soil biodiversity and ecosystem processes to environmental change, explains the importance of quickly addressing the changes in Antarctica. The authors of the paper, published in Science Magazine, identified short term threats like the impact of climate change on marine ecosystems, in addition to long term threats such as an increase in ocean acidity.
University president Tony Frank will hold an open forum for public discussion of CSU’s proposed on-campus stadium according to a press release. The forum will be held on Tuesday, July 31 at 5 p.m. in the Lory Student Center East Ballroom and provide an opportunity for the public to share opinions and ideas about the stadium proposal. This will be the last chance for public input on the issue, after which Frank’s decision will pend the Stadium Advisory Committee feasibility study.

Eating real food is the best thing By Michael Elizabeth Sakas
Besides our hair color and identical sense of humor, it’s hard to find resemblance between my sister and me. My “curvy” frame of fivefoot-four-inches compared to Elly’s five-foot-nine-inch bod would certainly cause most to question our sisterhood. While Elly ate whatever she wanted, my struggle with food started at the age of ten. Most of my family was incredibly fit, and a lot of pressure was put on me to be the same. It never quite made sense to me though, even then. Elly and I ate from the same kitchen— why suddenly did I have to diet? Around five years ago, Elly moved to New York to pursue modeling. Suddenly faced with having to lose unhealthy amounts of weight, she started looking into diets herself. Whenever we heard about the latest-and-greatest way to shed pounds, we tried it ourselves. There were the simple ones—low fat, low calories, and lots of working out. There were the crazy ones— choking down a spoonful of oil or sugar just before a meal to keep a “flavor association” from forming, whatever that meant. And of course we had to try the “master cleanse,” that lemon, syrup and cayenne concoction that Beyonce made famous when it caused her to lose 30 pounds. I still can’t eat food with cayenne in it. We both lost weight though, slowly yet painfully. And that was the goal, right? It didn’t matter that food was all I thought about, that I planned my entire day around when and what I was going to eat, or that I was grumpy and exhausted and no fun to be around. From what I knew, everything we were doing was fine. Nothing we attempted was long term. A person can only gag-down so many spoonfuls of oil, or go so many days eating nothing but cucumbers. Eventually we had to stop, and the weight we tried so hard to lose would come piling back on. We even ended up weighing more than we did initially, as if our bodies were telling us to screw off in the best way they knew how. At 18-years-old and 150 pounds, I didn’t weigh the amount I was supposed to, and according to America’s ideologies on health, the only way to get there was through exercise, low calorie foods and harnessing the willpower of an Olympian. I was facing a lifetime of struggle with food. I knew that if I didn’t watch every single thing I put in my mouth, I would eventually weigh and unsightly amount. In New York, Elly could no longer take the modeling culture. The rampant drug abuse, eating disorders and deaths were too much to handle, and she moved back to Colorado. A closeted nerd, Elly spent hours on the web researching topics she found interesting. One day, while munching on 100-calorie snacks and diet soda, she came across a health blog. The blogger is Matt Stone, a young guy who labels himself “Just some pigheaded punk with a serious research problem.” His main argument: do not diet. Diets only take us to the exact place we don’t want to be—unhealthy and overweight. I couldn’t take him seriously. This “pigheaded punk” was telling me to eat thousands of calories a day, rather than the mere 600 I had been living on. The “logic” of calories in vs. calories out had been engraved into my brain. No one, especially a stranger from a blog, could convince me otherwise.
Elly, with a research problem of her own, was more open-minded. Granted, she did weigh ten pounds less than me and is five-inches taller. She had the wiggle room to experiment, even if it did cause her to gain weight. I didn’t, and Stone’s ideas scared me. As Elly poured over the information and absorbed every word he and his fellow nutritionists had to say, she filled me in on the basics. Stone believes in real food, good food, and lots of it. His only restriction is to limit th processed: no fake sweeteners, vegetable/ palm/sunflower/canola oil, white flour, honey, nitrates and preservatives. He explains how our bodies have no idea how to process or handle these “fake foods,” and the overconsumption of them can ruin our health and metabolism. For what we can eat, throw out everything we believe is right. Eat meat with the fat, butter instead of margarine, olive or coconut oil instead of vegetable, whole milk instead of skim and so on. Eat the food we evolved on; food put on this earth to support us, not kill us. Rebuild a healthy relationship with what you eat by no longer harming your body by limiting calories and starving all day. I listened to her passively, pretending not to care. Yet, unlike what I “knew,” what Stone had to say made sense. Why is it that as America cares more about health, the less healthy we get? Who is really benefiting from all these unfounded diets we trust? How did our ancestors stay lean and healthy if there were no George Forman grills around? Elly was convinced. Following everything Stone said, she completely stopped dieting and lost weight. But more importantly, she got healthy. Her hair grew in thick and shiny, her skin was soft, her eyes bright, her energy was up and her attitude towards life improved significantly. She was free from the prison that food had hidden her in. After seeing Elly’s great success, I put my fears aside and followed Stone’s wisdom myself. These were real changes I was making, and it finally felt right. I have found a peace within myself that I never thought I could find. I can eat when I want, as much as I want and not for a second think about my weight. My energy is so high that I can tackle my busy college life easily. Before I was groggy and practically asleep all hours of the day. Now, I am awake. My empathy for the health of America has also risen greatly, knowing I was a part of the majority only a few years ago. We are being fed lies to benefit America’s economy. Dieting and image consciousness supports almost every industry. How much money would we be saving if it weren’t spent on gym memberships, expensive clothing, personal trainers, makeup, plastic surgery, frozen foods, doctor visits for poor health or medications? We are now so disconnected from the goods we consume that we no longer question how they affect or benefit us. Elly and I look much more alike now; I still stand at five-feet-four-inches, but am a healthy 135 pounds. She still towers over me, but she is no longer a beanpole. Our nutritional quest is far from over, but at least people can now believe us when we tell them we are sisters. Editor in Cheif Michael Elizabeth Sakas can be reached at email@example.com
To frack or not to frack? Alternative sources of fuel become more and more viable every year, and while they are necessary for our future, it is important that we use as many different sources of fuel as we can for the time being. This includes natural gas from the drilling practice known as fracking. In fracking, water is pumped through wells drilled thousands of feet into the ground. The resulting pressure causes natural gas, a fuel which the U.S. has in abundance, to be released from rock formations. The editorial board at the Collegian has been listening as the debate surrounding fracking in Colorado grows louder and louder. On one side, the argument exists that fracking can bring jobs and a relative amount of energy independence to Colorado. However, the arguments against frack-
ing include the possible contamination of groundwater, stress on existing water supply, decreased air quality, and mismanagement of wastewater.
“We need to frack, but only so long as the industry is strictly overseen and regulated.” Unfortunately, and despite the law of conservation of energy, fuel is a finite resource. The fossil fuels we use to run our cars, heat and cool our homes, power our appliances and generally depend on can’t and won’t last forever. That’s why we need to responsibly and conscientiously make use
of the resources that we have in Colorado. We need to frack, but only so long as the industry is strictly overseen and regulated. A quick google search reveals link after link of incriminating reports labeling fracking as a dirty, insidious and destructive industry. In one of the most compelling documents against fracking so far, the New York Times ran a lengthy piece on the environmental degradation of Pennsylvania as a resulting of fracking and its industry’s practices. Our need for fuel cannot be understated, and for that reason we must continue to develop and utilize technologies such as fracking. We must also ensure, though, that our experience in tapping the planet for its resources leads us to not make the same mistakes that we’ve made in the past.

Free knowledge: learning online and the future of institutional higher education
By John Sheesley
Education is a wonderful thing, the more you know the more you are capable of doing. But can the value of an education be measured in dollars? Universities promise to give their students the skills they will need to be successful later in life, but the fruits of the student’s labor become a diploma, a piece of paper as the evidence of higher education. The closely guarded power to issue this piece of paper has given universities and community colleges the ability to charge whatever they wish for it, limited only by the number of students they can attract. Colorado State University charges more than $4,000 per semester for tuition to Colorado residents and more than $12,000 per semester to students from out of state. The actual cost of attendance is much higher. The cost of CSU after room and board, as estimated on their website is about $20,000 a year for in state students and $40,000 for out of state students. There are lower cost options, such as correspondence classes at an open university, but these can still cost in excess of $3,000 a semester and do not provide the amenities of a traditional university. Community colleges are cheaper yet, costing only about $2,000 per semester.

These numbers all seem very high, but students are enticed by the idea of paying $80,000 now (CSU’s $20,000 in state cost of attendance for four years) in order to get a much better job later. The value of a bachelor’s degree, calculated by increased lifetime earnings, is usually considered to be somewhere in the millions. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, the actual numbers are far lower. A student with a college education will, on average, make only about $300,000 more over the 30 years after
“The greatest thing the university teaches may not be math or arts or literature, but be a voracious appetite for knowledge, a consuming desire to learn.” they graduate than a student who did not seek higher education. This number is adjusted for the costs of attendance and dropout rate. But perhaps the real value in higher education cannot be measured with a dollar sign or a value. The greatest thing the university teaches may not be math or arts or literature, but be a voracious appetite for knowledge, a consuming desire to learn. Out of this desire for knowledge
have come some extraordinary programs. TED, a non-profit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading,” has become a place to share ideas in 18 minutes, the time limitation of a TED Talk. iTunes U contains a wealth of information contributed by universities for distribution to anyone with an iTunes account. The Khan Academy provides education on everything from math to art history via videos on its webpage. Harvard University, and many other universities, including CSU, offer extensive online extension services and video lectures. These programs all have two things in common; they are all in the pursuit of increasing knowledge, and they are all free. Universities are offering free programs and information online in larger amounts than ever before. The Khan Academy offers an extensive video library, a large collection of interactive challenges and assessments on a multitude of topics. Every math problem on the site can be broken down, step-by-step and explained. Statistics about information covered and student achievements are all available. The Khan Academy is one of a growing number of online learning resources and the only thing that such courses do not offer their students is credit. But it is only a matter of time. There are hundreds of TED talks, thousands of lectures available on iTunes U and Khanacademy.org, all available to anyone for free. Will universities continue to hold the sacred power of accreditation, or will free, community run online universities one day be able to offer an equal education and valid diplomas?

Faculty Art Exhibition allows instructors to show off their skills By Kyle Grabowski The Rocky Mountain Collegian
For the first time ever, the University Center for the Arts’ art museum is hosting a Faculty Art Exhibition for members of CSU’s art department. “We’ve had a couple of faculty exhibitions, one was in Pueblo and one was in the Hatton Gallery,” metalsmithing and jewelry Associate Professor Haley Bates said. “The thing I really appreciated about this show is that it was actually curated. Faculty submitted work and there was no guarantee that was the work [that] would be chosen.” Faculty members were asked to submit three pieces for the exhibition, then Programs and Exhibitions Coordinator Keith Jentzsch and University Art Museum Director Linda Frickman selected which individual pieces to display and how to put them in the space. “We selected a minimum of one, and then some people got more than one piece in. It was a very organic process for us,” Jentzsch said. The lack of a unified theme for the exhibit challenged Jentzch and Frickman to find connections and similarities between pieces to help display the art in the space. “You try to look for relationships or complements that happen with the work. It could be a formal thing, could be content driven, but mostly looking how work sits next to each other,” Jentzch said. “When you’re working with 27 individual artists all doing different things it’s complicated to make a show look cohesive. What we have here is an excellent representation of the diversity of the department.”
Bates is showing a series of three copper and stainless steel sculptures that represent the first serious artistic work she did after the birth of her daughter. “For the piece in the middle, the smaller vessel is literally connected to the larger vessel and when you fill the larger vessel with a liquid it keeps going down and drains. That sounds kind of negative but I don’t mean for it to. That’s kind of how you feel sometimes after you have a child,” Bates said. “You have a finite amount of energy to give and the child takes so much of it. Of course you want to give it to that child, but there’s also something where you hit a wall and think ‘I’ve got to get back to finding myself again.’ That’s what this work represents.” Some pieces are representative of places and moments, like professor Gary Huibregtse’s enlarged photo of a modified silver 1950’s car about to take a speed run at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Nevada. “It’s about describing the object but also about describing the event. What I’m interested in is the way in which they have a form-follows-function quality. But aesthetically and operationally they’re really oddball things,” he said. “That’s what photographers do, they photograph things they have some knowledge of and they show you what they’ve found. The act of making the photograph is saying ‘I would like you think this is interesting as well’.” Regardless of the specifics of a piece, the primary goal of the exhibition is to provide a space for the faculty to share their art with the community they work and live in.

“The community gets a sense of what the faculty are doing. They’re not only teaching professionals, but they’re artists with a serious studio practice,” Jentzsch said. “Students also benefit from seeing what the faculty are up to as well. There are connections they might see that they didn’t realize were there. It might drive them to take a class with a faculty member that they find interest in.” It also provides them with a chance to see what their colleagues are working on. “There’s not very many opportunities for faculty to see what the other faculty are doing. In a selfish way it’s actually a really great snapshot of what everyone’s doing in their own studio,” Bates said. “Part of the value of having an exhibition like this is that students can see what their professors are doing and it provides a broader context for what they’re working on.” Though there are more students in town to see the exhibition during the fall and spring semesters, the University Art Museum chose the summer to display faculty work because it allows the work to be on display for longer and doesn’t take time away from the educational exhibitions it typically shows. “Even though it’s not up during an active semester, the show is up for a really long time and quite frankly the quality of exhibition that Linny brings to the exhibition is pretty astounding,” Bates said. “I think it’s very valuable that students will be able to see this faculty show without it taking away from other exhibitions in need of the space.” Producer Kyle Grabowski can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

officials to assure this is done right,” Carlson said. Dobbie believes this is an important aspect for the Center for the New Energy Economy. “California regulators from the California Department of Conservation invited a team of Colorado State University researchers, led by Bill Ritter (current director for the Center for the New Energy Economy), to come to California to discuss the topics in the informational seminar focused on hydraulic fracturing,” Dobbie said in an email. “It was important that the Center for the New Energy Economy would answer their request, thereby helping California put in place effective rules, regulations and policy surrounding hydraulic fracturing in their state,” she said. Dobbie finished by emphasizing how connected
the Center was with CSU when it came to policy related to issues like fracking. The seminar hosted California regulators, government officials, energy stakeholders, community members, environmentalists and business leaders. The team that attended included five CSU community members. The topics presented by the team included geology of oil and gas, well construction, water management, air emissions and policy issues. CSU will hold a similar symposium starting October 1 that addresses general issues concerned with natural gas. The symposium will possibly include national speakers, real project presentations and networking opportunities. According to Dobbie, all community members are invited to attend.

New master’s courses will be offered online By Nic Turiciano The Rocky Mountain Collegian CSU announced two new masters of engineering degrees to be offered entirely on the Web. The master’s degrees of engineering in electrical and computer engineering and engineering management are the latest graduate degrees to be offered by Colorado State as part of CSU OnlinePlus. “Whether students are looking to increase their salary, earn the opportunity to work on higher-level projects, or simply need to keep up with the pace of innovation, these degrees can help them get there,” said Tony Maciejewski, department head and electrical and computer engineering professor, in a CSU press release. The two new master’s programs grew out of the preexisting systems engineering degree offered by OnlinePlus, said Hunt Lambert, the associate provost of the Department of Continuing Education. “We’ve had the engineering management degree on the books for a long time, but now we see these specialties that they really want,” Lambert said. “There has been a lot of engineering product out there for a while, and it was clear that this should be called out because the market wants them,” Lambert added. The addition of the new master’s of engineering degrees brings the total of distinct graduate degrees offered by OnlinePlus to 18, though Lambert indicated that number is likely to continue climbing.
“We’re growing at about 20 percent a year,” Lambert said. “Last year we served 10,500 students that never came to campus, so I’d say that it’s a very bright future.” But teaching online creates obstacles that aren’t present in typical campus courses. Kraig Peel, an assistant professor in the animal sciences department, has recorded two graduate courses this summer as part of the integrated resource management master’s program, and finds that communicating with students through the Web can sometimes be more difficult than if they’re in a conventional campus setting. “It’s very easy to communicate with a student in class. You can look them in the eye, hear their tone of voice and read their body language,” Peel said. “I think we’ve all sent an email or a text that was perceived wrongly by someone else. When you are communicating solely online, there is much more opportunity for miscommunication.” Peel explained that CSU Web courses are loosely regulated, meaning that the style and structure of lectures is left to the professor. He also thinks it should stay that way. “I think we should let the market bear out what the good courses are and students will utilize the good courses. The ones that aren’t put together well, people won’t enroll in them and they won’t move forward,” Peel said. Producer Nic Turiciano can be reached at email@example.com
