Free legal advice available for students WSG  contracts  lawyer   to  assist  students By Lucas Wimmer Staff  Writer

  As  college  students,  there  are   many  times  when  a  lawyer  could   be   helpful.   Disagreements   with   a   landlord,   underage   drinking   WLFNHWV DQG WUDIÂżF WLFNHWV DUH DOO common  occurrences  among  stu-­ dents.   But   lawyers   can   be   expen-­ sive,   and   college   students   do   not   usually   have   money   readily   available   for   a   lawyer.   So   what   options  do  college  students  have?   That’s   where   Craig   Johnson   comes  in.     “Most  young  men  and  young   women  have  never  been  exposed   to   the   police,   the   legal   system,   landlords   and   tenants,   signing  

contracts,   etc.,   so   they   don’t   know   what   their   rights   are,�   he   said.   Johnson   is   a   lawyer   con-­ tracted   by   Whitewater   Student   Government  to  provide  free  legal   advice   to   UW-­   Whitewater   stu-­ dents.     U W-­ W h i t e -­ water   junior   Mjay   Bouska   believes   this   is   a   valuable   asset   Bouska for  students.       “I   know   I’ve   personally   had   an   issue   with   a   landlord,�   Bous-­ ka  said.  “If  students  know  about   the   free   legal   advice   it   can   be   a   lot   easier   for   them   to   save   some   money  or  some  hassle.�   His  advice  usually  consists  of   what  the  individual  can  expect  in   court,   what   Johnson   thinks   their   chances  are  of  beating  or  amend-­

ing  a  criminal  charge  and  what  he   advises  they  should  do  with  their   issue.   Johnson   cannot   take   cases   for   the   students,   but   will   of-­ fer   his   advice   to   their   problems   and   recommend   them   to   a   lawyer   if   they   need   fur-­ ther   assistance.   If  an  issue  is  still   unresolved,   he   will   meet   with   a   person  more  than   Murphy once.     “A  lot  of  students  come  back   to   me   a   number   of   times   until   it   does  get  resolved,�  he  said.   Johnson   has   been   advising   UW-­W   students   for   the   last   two   years.   WSG   contracts   a   lawyer   for   three   years   at   a   time,   and   takes   bids   when   the   contract   is   expired   to   choose   a   new   lawyer   or  keep  the  old  one.

Senior  wins  national  civic  honor   „Stephanie  Abbott     a   nice   job   of   managing   so   many   pened.�

Staff  Writer

     When  one  student  succeeds,  it   is  a  success  for  the  entire  campus.     National  titles,  academic  honors,   and  awards  bring  forth  a  sense  of   pride  and  success  on  campus  that   is  contagious.   U W-­ W h i t e -­ water   can   claim   more   success   through   the   achievements   of   Stephanie   Ab-­ bott   who   was   Mackin recently   chosen   for   one   of   the   respected   New-­ man  Civic  Fellows  Awards.    The   award   is   presented   to   only   181   college   students   in   the   country   who   exemplify   positive   civic   leadership.     “These  students  represent  the   next   generation   of   public   prob-­ lem   solvers   and   civic   leaders,�   said   Dean   of   Students,   Mary   Beth  Mackin.   Mackin   saw   promise   in   Ab-­ bott  from  the  very  beginning,  and   decided   to   nominate   her   for   the   national  award.     “I   was   impressed   with   her   from   day   one,�   Mackin   said.   “She  is  so  bright  and  she  did  such

Leadership  natural  for  senior  speaker   „      Sydney  Nelson  

will  address  the  spring   graduating  class By Michael Riley Assistant  News  Editor

  When   Sydney   Nelson   ad-­ dresses   her   fellow   graduates   at   the   2012-­13   Spring   Commence-­ ment   Ceremony,   she   will   com-­ plete   a   trifecta;;   the  final  piece  to   a   puzzle,   which   includes   speak-­ ing  at  her  middle   school   and   high   Brizcoe school   gradua-­ tions.     Solving   this   puzzle   has   led   Nelson   on   an   undergraduate   ca-­ reer   across   the   campus   and   the   world.       “As   a   student   who   took   ad-­ vantage   of   every   single   oppor-­ tunity,   resource,   leadership   po-­ sition,   networking   potential   and   volunteer  experience  that  White-­ water  provided,  I  can’t  just  focus   on  one  thing  that  means  the  most   to  me,”  Nelson  said.    “Each  and   every   one   of   those   things   that   I   have  done  has  contributed  to  who   I  am  as  a  person.”   For  Nelson,  being  a  role  mod-­ el  for  her  peers  began  before  she   ever  set  foot  on  Whitewater  soil.       Frieda   Briscoe,   director   of   the   Minority   Business   Program,  

remembers  responding  to  Nelson   via   email   in   the   June   before   she   came   to   campus   as   a   freshman.     Nelson   applied   for   the   Summer   Business   Institute,   which   is   a   transitional  program  for  new  stu-­ dents,  and  was  accepted.       Once   the   pair   met,   Briscoe   was   immediately   impressed   by   Nelson’s  communication  skills  as   a   freshman,   and   that   admiration   four   years   ago   has   blossomed   into   an   important   relationship   for   Nelson.     “She   doesn’t   have   barriers   that   interfere   with   her   goals,”   Briscoe   said.   “Sydney   is   Clements very   good   at   vi-­ sualization.     She   sees   the   end   result,   and   everything   she   does   has  a  purpose.    It  all  fits  into  her   master  plan,  and  she  never  takes   her  eye  off  it.”     Briscoe  is  the  adviser  for  the   National   Association   of   Black   Accountants,   an   organization   that   Nelson   has   served   as   the   vice  president  and  president.       “She   has   been   my   resource   for   all   things   professional,”   Nelson   said.     “Without   her,   I   can   truly   say   I   would   not   be   in   the   position   I   am   today.”   When  Nelson  came  for  a  tour,   she   still   remembers   how   engag-­ ing   and   lively   the   campus   assis-­ tant   was,   a   position   she   found   herself   fulfilling   later   in   her   ca-­ reer.    

  “I   think   the   general   atmo-­   Even   though   Nelson   knew   sphere   when   you   step   on   this   she   wanted   to   major   in   account-­ campus  makes  you  feel  like  you   ing,  she  had  two  goals.     are  home,”  Nelson  said.       First,  she  wanted  to  break  the     Nelson  admitted  once  she  had   stereotype   of   accountants   who   decided   to   come   to   UW-­White-­ are   often   closed   off   and   always   water,  she  was  on  the  website  for   in  front  of  their  computer.     hours   every   single   day,   looking     Second,  she  said  she  believes   at   all   the   different   organizations   the   whole   purpose   of   a   college   that  she  could  insert  herself  into   education   is   not   only   studying   upon   arrival.     She   prides   herself   your   intended   major,   but   all   the   on  always  having  a  plan,  but  she   experiences   that   surround   your   did   not   limit   herself   in   the   busi-­ four  or  five  years.     ness  world  of  the  university.       “I   truly   don’t   believe   that     Despite   being   an   account-­ people   who   go   to   college,   take   ing  major  with  a  Spanish  minor,   classes   in   their   major,   graduate   Nelson  was  extensively  involved   with   4.0   and   don’t   do   anything   in   the   America   Reads   program,   else   are   successful,”   Nelson   where,   after   a   few   years,   she   said.    “I  don’t  think  until  people   served   as   a   teaching   assistant.     step   outside   their   comfort   zone   Nelson   said   this   and   challenge   e x p e r i e n c e   themselves   do   changed   how   they   develop   she   viewed   her   into   better   hu-­  really  try  to  set   life,   and   it   has   man  beings.” been   critical   in   a  prime  example  of     N e l -­ her   develop-­ what  people  can  be  if   son   credits   the   ment.         of   her   they  just  have  the  right   source     “You   are   in-­ motivation   to   strumental   at   mind  set helping   the   their   develop-­   people   who                            Sydney  Nelson, ment  at  a  young   Commencement  Speaker   come   after   her.     age,”   she   said.     She   learned   “You   are   such   a   this   first   hand   role   model,   and   in  her  time  with   you   have   to   be   conscientious   of   NABA   while   attending   regional   your  persona  while  being  in  that   and  national  conferences.     environment.     It   has   translated     “Seeing   those   individuals   to   how   I   view   my   reputation   on   being   extremely   successful,   not   campus   as   a   whole.     I   am   very   only  in  their  professional  or  per-­ aware   of   how   others   perceive   sonal   lives,   but   turning   around   me.”     and   making   connections   with   the  next  generation  to  make  sure   they   are   following   their   lead,”   Nelson  said.       She  has  taken  NABA’s  motto   and   applied   it   to   her   own   life’s   philosophy;;  lifting  as  we  climb.       Nelson   has   been   lifting   UW-­ Whitewater  students  in  a  variety   of  ways,  whether  it  be  volunteer-­

   I

ing   in   incoming   freshman   pro-­ grams,   giving   tours   as   campus   assistant  or  putting  together  floor   programs  as  a  resident  assistant.       “I  really  try  to  set  a  prime  ex-­ ample   of   what   people   can   be   if   they  just  have  the  right  mindset,”   Nelson   said.     “I   am   not   saying   I   am   the   best   or   amazing.     I   am   really   trying   to   showcase   to   un-­ derclassmen   that   with   the   right   mindset,  network  and  motivation   you  can  do  anything  you  want  to   do.”   Regardless   of   the   detailed   journey   Nelson   had   planned   for   herself,   traveling   abroad   was   something  that  she  did  not  expect   to  be  so  heavily  involved  in.   She   has   traveled   to   Ghana,   El   Salvador,   Brazil,   England,   Ireland  and  China.    While  pursu-­ ing    her  Spanish  minor,  she  com-­ pleted  an  international  internship   in  Mexico  as  a  foreign  exchange   student.   Christine   Clements,   dean   of   the   College   of   Business   and   Economics,  has  become  close  to   Nelson  during  the  past  four  years   and  recognizes  her  uniqueness.     “I   think   Sydney   is   really   ex-­ ceptional,”   Clements   said.     “A   [student  like]  Sydney  rolls  along   every  five  to  ten  years.    It  has  to   do   with   the   number   and   extent   of  the  kinds  of  involvement.    We   have   a   lot   of   exceptional   stu-­ dents  on  campus,  but  the  kind  of   breadth   of   Sydney’s   activities   is   not  common.”   Nelson   will   return   to   fin-­ ish   her   master’s   degree   at   UW-­ Whitewater   and   will   continue   to   have  the  mindset  of  lifting  as  she   climbs.     A   journey   that,   if   it   is   anything   like   her   undergraduate   career,  will  be  bright  and  full  of   success.       RileyMP30@uww.edu

HOROSCOPES Cancer,  6/22-­7/22 Try  something  you’ve   never  done  before  this   summer.  Whether  it’s   skydiving  or  riding   a  roller  coaster,  the   experience  will  be  life   changing.

Aquarius,  1/20-­2/18 &DQ¶W¿JXUHRXWZKDW to  do  with  that  couch   you  want  to  get  rid  of?   Donate  it!  The  good   karma  will  help  you   GXULQJ¿QDOV

Leo,  7/23-­8/22 Keep  an  eye  out  for  love   at  your  summer  job.  A   coworker  or  customer   might  have  everything   you’re  looking  for.

Pisces,  2/19-­3/20 Don’t  forget  about  your   friends  this  summer.   Make  plans  to  keep  in   touch  and  visit  each   other.  It  is  sure  to  lead   to  great  memories.

Virgo,  8/23-­9/22 Opportunity  is   knocking!  All  of  the   internship  applications   you  turned  in  will  start   paying  off  this  week.

Aries,  3/21-­4/19 Get  outside  and  play  in   the  sunshine.  The  fresh   air  will  help  you  relax,   and  you  will  meet   someone  you’ll  wish   you’d  always  known.

Libra,  9/23-­10/22 Stop  worrying  about  the   future.  Life  will  be  a  lot   more  enjoyable  if  you   take  a  deep  breath  and   JRZLWKWKHÀRZ7KLQJV have  a  way  of  working   out  on  their  own.

Taurus,  4/20-­5/20 Ask  that  cutie  in  your   class  to  help  you  study   IRUWKH¿QDO\RX¶UH stressing  over.  You’ll   get  a  good  grade  and  a   fun  date  in  the  bargain!

Scorpio,  10/23-­11/21 When  you  get  a  call   later  in  the  week  from  a   number  you  don’t  rec-­ ognize,  answer  it.  It  may   be  someone  offering  you   the  opportunity  of  your   dreams.

Gemini,  5/21-­6/21 Sunny  days  can  burn   you  in  more  ways  than   one.  Load  up  on  the   SPF  when  you  head   outside,  and  don’t  get   your  hopes  up  for  plans   that  aren’t  set  in  stone.

Sagittarius,  11/22-­ 12/21 Summer  is  just  around   the  corner.  Make  plans   to  take  a  road  trip  or   vacation  with  friends.  It   will  be  a  great  bonding   experience.

Wine Corkboard

„

What you’ll need: Old picture frame, hot glue gun, more than 50 wine bottle corks, square corkboard, smooth-edged steak knife.

1. Re-use an old framed picture that

has an interesting frame. Remove any artwork or embellishments, leaving just the frame and back support.

2. Cut corks in half along the long

side of the cork. A smooth-edged steak knife works the best. (Keep in mind your safety. After a few cuts, your hands may get tired. Take breaks.)

3. Lay the corks out on your back

support to make sure your pattern works with the number of corks you have to work with.

4. Using a hot glue gun, cover the

ÂEXWMHISJXLILEPZIHGSVO[MXLKPYI and immediately place it on the back support, applying a bit of pressure.

5. Once your outside ring of corks is

glued down, measure the inside square ERHGYX]SYVWUYEVIGSVOFSEVHXSÁX Hot glue the square into the middle. To add depth, glue a few cork halves to the middle of the square corkboard.

6. Use your homemade, low-cost

wine corkboard to post notes, grocery lists or pictures.

Sudoku Sudoku  can  be  solved  by  placing  a  digit  in  each  of  the  remaining   empty  squares  so  that  each  of  the  nine  rows,  nine  columns  and   nine  mini-­grids  contain  all  digits  from  one  to  nine.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bad  human  communication  leaves  us   less  room  to  grow.â&#x20AC;?  -­Rowan  D.  Williams

Student-­â&#x20AC;?teacher  relations  rely  on  communication Royal Purple Editorial  Staff  Opinion

Students   have   heard   of   this   before.   A   student   doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   know   his   or   her   grade   and   has   no   idea   how   they   are   doing   in   the   class.   Teachers   change   what   they   have   scheduled   on   the   syllabus.  These   situations  are  nothing  new  in  col-­ lege.   The   issue,   however,   is   that   students   and   teachers   do   not   al-­ ways  communicate  with  each  oth-­ er  about  grades  and  changes  to  the   syllabus.  Teachers  must  constant-­ ly   make   sure   they   are   communi-­ cating   with   their   students   about   syllabus  changes  and  grades.  Stu-­ dents   must   take   the   time   to   ask   teachers   about   their   grades   and   what   is   expected   of   them   when   they  are  uncertain  as  well. Being   up   to   date   with   grades   helps  students  decide  where  to  de-­ vote  their  study  time.  If  a  student   has   a   B   in   one   class   and   a   C   in   another   class,   the   student   knows   to   spend   more   study   time   on   the   class  with  a  C.  If  a  student  is  con-­ stantly  aware  of  his  or  her  grade,   the  student  can  communicate  with   the   teacher   if   there   is   a   discrep-­ ancy   with   the   grade   the   student   received   or   inquire   about   extra  

credit  opportunities.   The   syllabus   is   an   agreement   between  the  teacher  and  his  or  her   students.  What  is  on  the  syllabus   is  what  is  expected  of  the  student   throughout   the   semester,   and   the   teacher   is   expected   to   adhere   to   his   or   her   own   syllabus.   If   the   teacher  changes  a  task  on  the  syl-­ labus   without   communicating   to   the   students,   should   the   students   still  be  held  responsible  for  com-­ pleting  the  task?  No,  they  should   not.  It  is  the  responsibility  of  the   teacher   in   this   case   to   communi-­ cate  with  the  students  that  there  is   a  change  to  the  syllabus.   Students  should  take  the  time   to  read  the  syllabus  front  to  back.   The  teachers  write  the  syllabi  for   WKH EHQH¿W RI WKH VWXGHQWV 6WX dents  are  expected  to  know  dead-­ lines   for   homework.   If   a   student   does  not  hand  in  his  or  her  home-­ work   on   time,   his   or   her   grade   suffers  for  it. Some   teachers   do   a   fantastic   job  communicating  and  being  re-­ liable   with   their   students,   either   by   posting   grades   for   students   online  via  D2L,  making  sure  they   are   handing   back   assignments   to   students  as  soon  as  they  are  grad-­ ed  or  notifying  students  via  email  

Sydney Michuda graphic/0LFKXGD6.#XZZHGX

or   in   class   about   syllabus   chang-­ es.  There  needs  to  be  consistency   between  teachers  on  these  issues.   Students   cannot   be   expected   to   know  their  grade  or  what  to  do  if   the   syllabus   is   changed   without   being  told.

Students   need   to   constantly   take   the   time   to   inquire   about   grades   or   timelines   if   they   are   not  sure.  Communication  is  a  two   way   street.   All   teachers   post   ei-­ ther   a   phone   number   or   an   email   address   in   the   syllabus,   and   all  

WHDFKHUV KDYH RI¿FH KRXUV ZKHQ a   student   may   speak   to   them   in   person.  Students  should  capitalize   on  this  to  communicate  with  their   teachers   about   any   questions   or   concerns  they  have. An   example   of   such   circum-­ stances  would  be  dismal  weather,   such   as   what   Wisconsin   had   to-­ ward  the  beginning  of  the  semes-­ ter.   If   a   teacher   needs   to   cancel   class  due  to  the  weather,  they  must   notify  the  students  and  ensure  the   class   is   aware   of   any   changes   to   the   syllabus.   If   the   teacher   de-­ cides  not  to  cancel  class  but  some   students   are   unable   to   make   it   to   class,   it   is   their   responsibility   to   notify   the   teacher   and   ask   them   what  is  expected  of  them  because   they  missed  a  class  period. Communication   is   key   in   school,   just   like   any   job   or   rela-­ tionship.  If  one  party  is  not  com-­ municating   with   the   other   about   recent   changes   to   either   grades   or  the  syllabus,  then  the  students   cannot  expect  to  get  the  best  grade   possible.   Students   and   teachers   must   be   in   constant   communica-­ tion   over   deadlines   and   grades   throughout  the  semester. rp@uww.edu

Terry, I always say this, but thank you. Your mentoring and words of wisdom are something I will cherish forever. To Golden Key: Who said smart kids canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have friends? Not me! Thank you for the opportunity to lead our chapter, and to watch so many others grow into amazing

leaders. I will miss you all. To my ladies: Jenn, Kayhla, Felicia, Liz, Alicia, Heena, You ladies get me. Thank you for being loyal and true.

CONGRATULATIONS, ALI BLANCHARD! The Creative Act by Judy Collins

Sydney-­ Congratulations  on  reaching  another  mile-­ stone  in  your  life.  Continue  to  grow,  learn,   and  love  whatever  you  do.  We  will  always   be  there  to  encourage,   support,  and  love  you,  no  matter  what.  Just  remember: In  your  happy  moments...Praise  God. In  your  difficult  moments...Seek  God. In  your  quiet  moments...Worship  God. In  your  painful  moments...Trust  God. and  In  every  moment...Thank  God. Loving  you  always  and  forever  in  every   moment, Dad,  Mom  &  Brother  (David)

The creative act is one of great boldness where you act on your own beliefs. Creativity is the ability to risk being different from the crowd, to think differently, to act differently, and yet in a calculated, orderly fashion so that your idea, your vision, your new insight, is clear. It is the successful effort to make completeness out of chaos, to make the world dance, for a moment or forever, to your drum, at your pace, to your dream. With pride and love always, Mom, Dad, Jessica & Amber

Bailey, we don’t stop going to school when we graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become. We are so proud of your success. Luv ya tons Mom, Dad & Shelby

Dear Ashley, We want you to kow how proud we’ve always been to have you as our daughter and we will always support you in whatever you do. you have a beautiful smile, personality, attitude and amibtion to accomplish any endeavor in life.

your  foes  is  that  merchants  will  sell   items  to  you  at  a  steeper  price.  In  my   experience,   the   pros   of   taking   the   Serum   of   fallen   foes   to   craft   some   much-­needed   health   injections   far   outweighed  the  cons  of  having  some   salesman  be  upset  with  me. Concerning  Role  Playing  Game,   or   RPG   elements,   youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   got   your   typical  leveling  and  crafting  system.   Upon   gaining   a   level,   Temperance   can  put  two  points  into  one  of  three   skill   trees   highlighting   either   com-­ bat,   rogue   abilities   such   as   stealth,   or  Technomancy  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  which  is  essen-­ tially  magic.   Tiers   in   each   tree   unlock   inde-­ pendently   as   you   progress,   forcing   players  to  choose  their  skills  careful-­ ly.  On  top  of  that,  Temperance  gets   a  single  feat  point  every  level  gain,   which   players   can   use   to   enhance   non-­combat  skills. The   crafting   system   is   straight-­ forward;Íž  you  can  recycle  unwanted   items   for   parts   to   craft   new   items   and  armor,  letting  players  customize   their  offensive  and  defensive  gear.   While   the   leveling   system   worked   well   in   true   RPG   fashion,   the  crafting  system  would  have  been   more  fun  to  use  if  the  user  interface   wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  so  tedious  to  navigate.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not   fun  to  craft  when  you  have  to  click   through  three  menus  to  create  a  sin-­ gle  item  at  a  time. What   doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   work   well   is   the   combat.  In  a  near-­future  cyberpunk   setting  on  the  red  planet,  you  would   think  most  weapons  would  be  high-­ WHFK ÂżUHDUPV OLNH SODVPD JXQV RU something.  Not  in  Mars:  War  Logs.   Everyone,   including   the   military,   beat  each  other  with  clubs  and  steel   bars  like  dystopian  cavemen.   Prepare   to   experience   more   PHOHH FRPEDW WKDQ DQ\ VFLÂż 53* should   ever   contain.   When   you   do   JHWDKROGRIDÂżUHDUPLWÂśVDVHPL automatic   nail   gun.   Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   right,   when  trained  soldiers  arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  smash-­ ing   each   otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   skulls   in   with   tire   irons,  theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  taking  pot  shots  at  their   enemies  with  power  tools.   The   combat   itself   feels   solid   when   it   works,   but   sluggish   and   clunky   when   it   doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,   which   is   most   of   the   time.   When   tak-­ ing   swings   at   a   bad   guy,   I   felt   like  

Temperanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  attacks  were  always  a   move  behind  my  input.  Nearly  every   time  I  died  I  felt  cheated,  like  it  was   the  gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  fault  I  was  killed  and  not   my  own.   It  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  help  that  your  AI  part-­ ners  arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  worth  anything  but  to  use   as  bait  to  distract  one  half  of  the  op-­ ponents  while  you  deal  with  the  oth-­ ers.   Using  your  electric  Technoman-­ cy  powers  is  fun,  but  when  shooting   a   metal   nail   at   someone   damages   them  more  than  a  bolt  of  lightning,   you  canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  help  feeling  disappointed.   Utilizing   the   lock-­on   camera   to   deal  with  a  choice  opponent  sounds   like   a   good   move   to   make,   but   the   V\VWHPLVVRÂżQLFN\WKDW,RIWHQGLHG trying  to  get  it  to  work  before  I  could   lock   on   to   anyone.   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d   stay   away   from  it. For  all  my  issues  with  the  game,   I   think   Mars:   War   Logsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   most   re-­ deeming  feature  is  its  aesthetics.   The   animations,   graphics   and   overall   visual   style   look   and   feel   great   for   a   game   with   low   produc-­ tion   values,   a   testament   to   Spidersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   artistic  skill.   I  wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  say  Mars:  War  Logs   is  a  bad  game,  but  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  much  of  a   good  game  either. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   not   to   say   it   couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   be   one.   The   developers   clearly   have   a   lot   of   talent,   but   the   pieces   of   this   puzzle   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   come   together   in   the   way  they,  or  I,  hoped  they  would. If   Spiders   can   improve   every   faulty  facet  of  Mars:  War  Logs  just   a   notable   amount,   a   sequel   to   this   game  could  be  one  worth  paying  at-­ tention  to.

The   WIAC   Conference   Tour-­ nament   begins   this   weekend   and   the  Warhawks  have  high  expecta-­ tions  for  the  outcome.   The   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hawks   have   been   suc-­ cessful   so   far   this   season.   The   team  has  a  30-­5  overall  conference   record,  and  they  were  named  2013   WIAC   Champions   for   the   14th   time   in   school   history.   Accord-­ ing  to  the  most  recent  D3baseball. com   poll,   the   team   is   ranked   No.   4   in   the   nation,   not   to   mention   UW-­Whitewaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   smartest   menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   sports  team,  with  a  grade  point  av-­ erage  of  3.161 â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  are  abso-­ lutely   a   regional   c o n t e n d e r , â&#x20AC;?   Head  coach  John   Vodenlich  said.   The   great-­ est   opponents   in   the   WIAC   Cladis are   UW-­Stevens   Point   and   UW-­La   Crosse   for   the   â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hawks.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stevens   Point   is   a   quality   program,â&#x20AC;?   Vodenlich   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;They   have   been   there   every   step   of   the   way.   Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   good   chance   they   ZLOO ÂżQLVK VHFRQG /D &URVVH KDV some  very  good  pitching.â&#x20AC;? The   â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hawks   have   a   record   of   3-­4  against  UW-­Stevens  Point.   Other  teams  in  the  tournament   UW-­Oshkosh   and   UW-­Superior,   also   have   a   telling   reputation   and   are  not  counted  out  as  competition   either.   Vodenlich  said  that  the  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hawks   have  good  pitching,  starters,  and  a   lethal  offensive  lineup.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  done  it  on  all  sides  of   the  ball,â&#x20AC;?  Vodenlich  said.   The  â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  minds  have  been   set,   since   fall,   to   go   deep   in   the   season,   Vodelich   said.   With   that   said,  they  wanted  to  push  for  a  na-­ tional  championship.   Senior   captain   David   Cladis  

said  he  thinks  this  team  is  the  most   prepared   out   of   his   time   playing   with  the  â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hawks.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully   we   can   bring   it   home.  We  have  the  veterans  to  do   it.  Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  all  been  there  before,  so   weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  expecting  nothing  less  than   a  championship,â&#x20AC;?  Cladis  said. The  NCAA  tournament  also  is   in  sight  for  the  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hawks.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;As   far   as   getting   into   the   [NCAA]   tournament,   I   think   our   chances   are   pretty   good,â&#x20AC;?   Cladis   said.   Vodenlich  said  the  team  is  not   overlooking   the   WIAC   tourna-­ ment,  but  they  are  prepared  as  they   are  going  to  get. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   would   be   surprised   if   we   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  get  in  [to  the  NCAA  tourna-­ ment].  But,  this  tournament  is  the   only   way   in,   so   we   are   not   tak-­ ing   it   lightly,â&#x20AC;?   Vodenlich  said.   As   far   as   the   NCAA   Tourna-­ ment   goes,   the   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hawks  will  host   Bartlein on   Prucha   Field   at  James  B.  Mill-­ er  Stadium  May  16  through  19.   Last   Wednesday,   the   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hawks   played   The   College   of   St.   Scho-­ lastica  Saints  and  swept  them  15-­5   and  5-­3.  The  Saints  are  a  contend-­ er  in  the  NCAA  tournament.     Senior  shortstop  Steven  Bartle-­ in   thought   the   end   results   were   good   foreshadows   for   the   NCAA   tournament.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  think  tonight  actually  repre-­ sented  that  well,  because  that  was   a  team  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  seen  in  the  regional   the  last  couple  of  years,â&#x20AC;?  Bartlein   said.   The  next  step  after  the  NCAA   Tournament  for  the  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hawks  would   be   the   College   World   Series.   The   team   has   played   at   the   College   World  Series  in  2004,  2005,  2008   and  2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully  we  peak  at  the  right   times,  so  we  can  get  there  again,â&#x20AC;?   Cladis  said.   DuPuisJC28@uww.edu

Coach  of  the  Year Feature By Andrew Bayliss Staff  Writer

Head   coach   Keri   Carollo   was   at   the   helm   of   D3hoops.comâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   s e c o n d -­ r a n k e d   Warhawks   squad.   &DUROORÂśV WK year   coaching   at   UW-­Whitewater   was  her  most  suc-­ Thill cessful.   She  guided  the  â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hawks  to  a  reg-­ ular   season   WIAC   championship,   before  leading  the  team  to  the  best   NCAA   Tournament   in   UW-­W   his-­ WRU\ÂżQLVKLQJDVUXQQHUVXSIRUWKH national  championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   was   very   special,â&#x20AC;?   junior   guard   Mary   Merg   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   ac-­ complished   what   no   other   UW-­W   womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  team  has  accomplished  by   making  it  to  the  national  champion-­ ship  game.â&#x20AC;?

VTXDGWKHÂś+DZNVHQWHUHGWKH season   ranked   No.   8,   according   to   D3hoops.com.  Eight  weeks  into  the   season,  however,  the  team  dropped   RXWVLGHWKHQDWLRQÂśVWRSIROORZ ing   a   pair   of   conference   losses   to   UW-­Superior  and  UW-­Oshkosh. Even   though   the   â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hawks   did   not   live   up   to   preseason   expecta-­ WLRQVGXULQJWKHÂżUVWKDOIRIWKH\HDU Carollo   helped   her   team   stay   posi-­ tive  and  use  the  tough  times  to  band   together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   could   have   gone   one   of   two   ways   at   that   point   in   the   season,â&#x20AC;?   Carollo   said,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;and   the   next   day,   I   walked   into   practice   and   said,   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  just  going  to  play  and  have   fun.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Her   approach   worked.   The   Âś+DZNVÂżQLVKHGWKHUHJXODUVHDVRQ with  an  eight-­game  WIAC  winning   VWUHDNDQGIRXJKWEDFNWR1RLQ the  rankings.   After   the   loss   to   UW-­Oshkosh,   the  ladies  returned   to   their   home   court  and  crushed   UW-­Stout.   Merg   credited  Carolloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Merg belief  in  the  team   and   consistent   message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She  always  reminded  us  during   practice   of   our   goals,â&#x20AC;?   Merg   said,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;and  even  when  we  werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  ranked,   she  kept  reminding  us  that  our  goals   were  still  a  conference  and  national   championship.â&#x20AC;? The   recurring   theme   for   Car-­ olloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  team  this  season  was  family.   Merg  and  Thill  said  the  atmosphere   of   Warhawks   womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   basket-­ ball  was  apparent  before  they  even   stepped   foot   on   UW-­Whitewaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   campus.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   really   preach   that   fam-­ ily   philosophy,â&#x20AC;?   Carollo   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   critical   that   our   players   embrace   that   family   feeling.   We   want   them   to   graduate   from   UW-­Whitewater   and  feel  like  they  have  a  family  to   be  part  of  forever.â&#x20AC;?

While   the   â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hawks   knew   they   had   the   talent   to   go   deep   into   the   postseason   from   early   on,   team   chemistry   is   what   led   them   to   the   brink  of  a  national  title.   Such  great  chemistry  could  not   have   been   achieved   without   the   family   atmosphere   and   strength   of   the   programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   tradition,   Carollo   said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   always   built   our   pro-­ gram  on  hard  work,  from  the  coach-­ es   to   the   players,â&#x20AC;?   she   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   crucial   part   is   recruiting   great   kids   with  great  families  who  continue  to   push  them  in  the  offseason  to  grow   as  individuals.â&#x20AC;? From   the   coaching   staff   to   the   players   to   their   families,   the   War-­ hawks  womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  basketball  program   is  building  a  family  tradition.
