Southeast Missouri State University’s Preferred Commuter Lot A was closed on March 12, moving students who had passes for the lot to the Towers parking garage. The lot was closed due to the construction of a new residence hall. The lot is being used to store construction materials. Students affected by this were only notified by email that day, which was during the university’s spring break. “We received a lot of complaints once classes resumed,” said Jeff Morrow, a ticket writer at Southeast’s Department of Public Safety. “Apparently, most of them did not check their emails during the break, keeping them from finding out until it was too late.” The construction of the residence hall was always planned to begin after Jan. 1, however, the exact date was not known for a long time. “We did not want to say

Unfortunately, we did not find out until the last minute.” Preferred Commuter Lot A, which is located across the street from the Polytechnic Building, is normally used by faculty as well as students with relevant passes. Now those who have been displaced must park in the lot outside Towers Complex and Greek housing. The extra distance between the two lots is about the length of a straight line between Towers and Academic Hall. “They now have to share the lot with residents living in Towers,”

Morrow said. “Furthermore, the preferred lots are open to anyone with a preferred pass after 1 p.m.” All of this means that the commuter students who parked by the Polytechnic Building will have a hard time finding spaces due to full lots. This is especially true because Towers consists of four dorms and two dining facilities, in addition to all the Greek students who park there. DPS did not issue immediate refunds to those displaced by the closed lot, but they will be offered. Preferred passes allow students to park in lots closer to the residence halls and academic buildings. They cost $155 if purchased during the fall semester or $116 if purchased during the spring semester. Perimeter passes allow students

to park in the lots next to the recreation centers, depending if the student is a resident or commuter. These passes cost $105 if bought in the fall semester or $79 in the spring semester. “The parking garage at Towers is also preferred parking, so the price of the pass is still the same,” Richards said. “It means a longer walk, but it is not much longer than before. Those who do not wish to park there do have the option of trading in their parking decals for a partial refund or for a perimeter pass.” In addition to the new residence hall, the construction will also include an expanded and improved parking lot. In the meantime, the closest perimeter lot is next to the Student Recreation Center - North.

The Southeast Missouri State University football team has spring practices every year, but coach Tony Samuel said he is not sure what to expect this season with a large group of returning players and a quarterback spot to fill. The Redhawks started its 6 a.m. practices Monday. They will hold fifteen practices and will practice every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Houck Stadium. Two scrimmages will be held at noon April 14 and 21. All of the team’s practices are open to the public. “We are basically just getting

ourselves all the fundamentals and all those things taken care of in the spring, safety techniques and all those kind of things, and that just takes us into summer training,” Samuel said. Southeast, which finished last season with a record of 3-8, has nine returning starters on offense and eight returning starters on defense. Samuel said he hopes that his players will be better this year because they have more experience. “Football is all about the fundamentals,” Samuel said. “In order to be really good everyone has to master their positions, and so we’ve got some new

guys and they have to get good at it and we just have to get sound with our techniques.” Linebacker Blake Peiffer is one player that saw individual success last season that will return to the team. He was a first-team All-Ohio Valley Conference selection and broke the school’s single-season record for tackles with 151. Southeast will have to replace quarterback Matt Scheible, a three-year starter. He was the only OVC quarterback to accumulate over 2,000 yards rushing and 4,000 yards passing in a career. He earned All-OVC honors during his last two seasons and broke the Southeast record for total offense with 7,436 yards.

Kyle Snyder, a sophomore transfer from Ohio University, is one player that Samuel is looking at for the position. Snyder was a backup quarterback for the Bobcats and played in five games, completing 5-of-8 passes for 38 yards. “He can run, he can throw,” Samuel said. “He’s run our offense, a very similar offense, with Ohio. He’s the guy that goes with the style of what we like, so I guess we’ll get to find out here.” Tyler Peoples, Zach Levy and Scott Lathrop are all also options for quarterback. Southeast will complete spring practices with its Spring Game and Spring Party on April 28.

Search continues for athletics director Travis Wibbenmeyer Sports Editor

Southeast Missouri State University is closer to finding a new athletics director after receiving final recommendations from Parker Executive Search on Friday. The university hired Parker, a search firm based in Atlanta, to find suitable candidates for the position. Southeast’s athletics director search committee also met with Parker representatives on Monday to discuss the candidates. According to Southeast’s vice president for finance and management Kathy Mangels, the university has received 64 applications and wants to make a hire by the end of April. The next step for Southeast is to conduct interviews in St. Louis to narrow the number of candidates down to two or three. The eight-person search committee, headed by Mangels, will conduct the interviews. “You want to understand why

they think this is a good career move for them,” Mangels said. “Are they maybe at an associate AD level and this a next step for them, or are they at a smaller school and this is a step up? We need to understand why they think this is a good fit for their career path.” The search committee is comprised of Regent Jim Limbaugh, community supporters Janet Esicar and Al Spradling, assistant professor of sport management Dr. Beth Easter, treasury accountant Lynda Seabaugh and student-athletes Brittany Harriel and Joel Krause. Mangels said the committee is looking for someone who can take Southeast athletics to the “next level.” Unlike when the university sought to replace fired athletics director Don Kaverman in 2008, the school is not facing potential NCAA sanctions, which has meant there is less pressure to quickly find a replacement. Southeast’s men’s and women’s

basketball programs were later found to have violated NCAA rules. The university was initially put on two years of probation in 2008 after violations by the women’s program were discovered. An additional three years were added after the men’s program violated NCAA rules. The probationary period will expire on June 17, 2013 . “Winning in sports is important to people, and you want to be competitive,” Mangels said. “[But] it’s not about necessarily being the first in every sport. “It’s [also] in terms of recognition, that you have a program that is recognized by other schools [and] that is competitive and well-run. It’s in terms of community and alumni support to take it to the next level, that we have studentathletes that are recognized for academic achievement out in the community, but also on the field.” Former associate athletics director Cindy Gannon has been

filling in as interim athletics director since Shafer’s retirement. Gannon also took over on an interim basis in 2008. It has taken nine months so far to fill the position. Mangels said this is due to Gannon’s experience and that university is not under pressure to find an immediate replacement. “Part of any department, whether it’s athletics or anything else, you try to think of succession and planning and having those people in place at the level,” Mangels said. “Cindy Gannon has done a great job during this interim period and not just sitting back and saying ‘Well, we’ll kind of just float along until we have a permanent AD,’ by understanding that you have to keep the program moving and try to keep it moving forward and moving up, and she’s done a great job of that. I think in every department you try to have those people who you’re getting ready and who can take on that position like Cindy has.”

HUMANS vs. Zombies ZOMBIES WIN IN THE FINAL GAME OF HUMANS VS. ZOMBIES

Humans fight their way through zombies in a game at Capaha Park. - Photo by Kelso Hope Dan Fox Editor

The walking dead rose and conquered at Southeast Missouri State University. The biannual Humans vs. Zombies game concluded at midnight March 24 at the University Center with the humans losing to the zombie horde. HVZ is a game played between two teams of students. The humans are armed with Nerf guns, dubbed foam blasters by the players, and balled-up socks. They try to escape from the zombies, who bring humans into their numbers by tagging them. The game has grown in popularity since it was started in 2005 at Goucher College in Baltimore, and is now played across the nation. HVZ starts with a single zombie. Unable to control his or her terrible hunger, that original zombie must feed on friends, classmates and neighbors. The only thing stopping a zombie from infecting a human is a quick and steady throw of a sock ball, which will stun the undead for 15 minutes, long enough for a human to make a hasty retreat. “The second game we played I forgot my socks. I had to walk from Towers all the way to Grauel,” said Cassi Daugette, a mission writer and administrator for the Southeast chapter of HVZ. “It was the scariest experience of my life.” According to Daugette, most of the people who fall prey to zombies are on their way to class. “It’s frightening, especially when some of the zombies hide in bushes,” Daugette said. Fear isn’t the only emotion that fills the humans during the course of the game. HVZ is rife with drama. The game causes friends and loved ones to turn on each other. Boyfriends will attack girlfriends, brothers chase their sisters and former allegiances are shattered. Just stepping outside of a safe zone, like a dormitory or the library, is a daunting prospect as the human numbers start to dwindle. “That’s when despair starts settling in and you worry about going to your classes more and more each day and whether or not you want to go to the mission, and you will anyway, but you just wonder if you’re going to survive,” HVZ administrator Joshua Peters said. Regular zombies aren’t all that the dwindling human survivors have to face. Special infected zombies have been known to roam the battlefield and have their own set of abilities to overwhelm the humans. The game on March 24 featured what the humans described as the juggernaut, a special zombie that could only shamble at walking speeds, but had the ability to act as a mobile re-spawn point by tagging in its fallen undead friends. “Instead of stun time, they could just tag the juggernaut and be back in the game,” Peters said. “And there’s

You worry about going to your classes ... you will anyway, but you just wonder if you’re going to survive. Joshua Peters only one gun that can kill it.” Only certain special zombies can be taken out with weapons. Regular zombies can’t be killed by the conventional foam blaster or balled-up sock. The only way to take one of the undead out permanently is to cut it off its food source. Once that zombie is dead, they are out of the game for good. “They can be starved, which means they didn’t get a tag for 48 hours,” Peters said. Once a zombie tags a human, the human must surrender a code that the zombie enters online. This code registers the human as being turned to the undead team. Up to three zombies at a time can feed on a single human, sustaining them all and keeping them in the game. Though the humans didn’t win this semester, the forces of the living have beaten the zombies before at Southeast. For the human team to win, either all the zombies have to starve to death or the humans have to triumph in the final mission. The goals in the final mission can be as simple as surviving until rescue arrives, but sometimes the humans have harder objectives to overcome while they hold off the zombies. Different game modifiers, like special zombies, are decided ahead of time by the game administrators and mission writers. “One year we said one human has to beat Minesweeper on the hardest difficulty level in order for the humans to survive,” Daugette said. “They survived for 15 minutes and they couldn’t beat it, and they all died.” According to Daugette, it’s typical for the zombies to win. Even at other universities there is no safe haven. HVZ is played at more than 650 colleges worldwide. Truman State University senior Tyler George said that when you see the horde coming at you, there is only one thing you can do. “You just have to stop, close your eyes and brace yourself for the inevitable impact,” George said.

SPRING into Dance returns to stage ANNUAL DANCE CONCERT TO SHOWCASE ARTISTIC TALENT OF STUDENTS AND FACULTY Whitney Law Arrow Reporter

Spring into Dance is a concert that features a mix of faculty and student choreography performed by Southeast Missouri State University dancers. Students have been working on this showcase since the 2011 fall semester and are still perfecting their pieces. The journey to the main stage is long for both the dancers and choreographers. Dancers audition to be in these shows in November. Faculty members that have chosen to choreograph pick who will be in their pieces. Student choreographers audition in January and also choose dancers by audition. The student pieces are developed and perfected for final cuts in March. Faculty then decides which of the student pieces work best together with their own to create a show. “We’re thrilled to have the four student choreographers — Laura Roth, Hannah Martin, Chance Hill and Amanda Beckmann — each doing very different pieces of choreography, so it’s going to be a really exciting concert,” artistic coordinator Dr. Marc Strauss said. The concert will include nine dances that exhibit the talent and hard work of the students and faculty that have spent the semester preparing for this main stage event. Strauss, Phillip Edgecombe and Hilary Peterson are the three faculty choreographers that will work alongside the student choreographers. The audience can expect to see a wide variety of dance styles ranging from classical ballet to modern dance and jazz. The musical styles are just as diverse including some pieces from Mozart and Beethoven as well as songs from the “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Taken” and “Zombieland” soundtracks. “Anytime people look at our program they marvel at the variety of dance styles and music choices that the choreographers pick,” Strauss said. This showcase is an opportunity for students to learn more about their trade and exhibit their work. That includes the work of the choreographers, dancers, live musicians and costume designers. “It’s taught me that you can do whatever you set your mind to,” junior student choreographer Beckmann said. “I always say, ‘Envision what you’re doing,’ so I always envisioned the dance as I was going through the process on stage, and it ended up getting chosen. So if you set your mind to something it can really happen.” Junior theater and dance student Keith Johnson said that this is an opportunity that could lead to future jobs. He said if someone from a dance company comes to the show and sees something that they like, it could lead to a new contact and a potential job. “The students will really enjoy it because there are so many different dance styles,” Johnson said. “Not everybody gets to see the modern, there’s a lot of hip-hop on TV now, but not a lot of modern or ballet or tap or contemporary. All of those they get to see here, and they get to see it right in front of them.” Strauss choreographed a classical ballet that will be performed to live music. It is a three-movement concerto by Bach that features violinists professor Brandon Christensen and 16-year-old Elizabeth Ansbury, who is one of his students. To accommodate this type of dance as well as all the others, costume designers work with the choreographers to create a costume that coincides with the choreographers’ visions. Faculty members Deanna Luetkenhaus and Jonathon Starr design as well as mentor student costume designers Tara Meyer and Sara Wiegard. “It’s important for the students to

have the chance to perform and develop their artistic abilities at choreography and performance,” Strauss said. “It’s also open to the public, and we love it when students that spend most of their time on the main campus come on over to the River Campus to see a concert and also the entire Cape Girardeau region.” Spring into Dance will be held at 7:30 p.m. April 12-14 and 2 p.m. April 15 in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall at the River Campus. Tickets cost $16 for general admission and are $3 with a Southeast ID. Tickets can be purchased at the River Campus box office or online at rivercampusevents.com. “For students that maybe haven’t taken a dance or theater or music or art class or ever visited the museum, this is a great chance for them to see what the visual and performing arts are doing as part of their university,” Strauss said. “For $3 with their ID, students get to see some very, very good dance.”

PROJECTS show skills learned at Southeast ART STUDENT EXHIBITS WILL BE DISPLAYED AT THE RIVER CAMPUS ART GALLERY THROUGHOUT APRIL

Zack Tucker branding all aspects of original airline Amity Downing Arrow Staff Writer

Senior graphic design and illustration major Zack Tucker came to Southeast Missouri State University and jumped into the Bachelor of Fine Arts program. “I didn’t do art in, like, high school or anything,” Tucker said. “I just started as an art major in college. I came in as a graphic design and illustration major because I liked working on yearbook in high school.” Every Bachelor of Fine Arts senior must complete a capstone project at the end of their college career called a BFA project. These projects will be featured in one of four Spring BFA Graduating Seniors Exhibitions this month. Tucker has spent between 15 and 20 hours a week working on his project since November, but his idea has been in development since he started attending Southeast. Tucker always knew that he wanted to brand an airline for his project. His inspiration came from architect and textile designer Alexander Girard, a commercial artist in the 1960s who worked with Braniff Airlines on a project to mark “The end of the plain plane.” Girard redesigned everything from the company’s sugar packets to its in-flight stationary. He also had the entire fleet of planes painted colors like orange to turquoise. Tucker is creating something similar for his project.

“It’s branding for a national airline service that I made up,” Tucker said. “It’s called Connect. It prides its hope in inspiring American travel through the use of culture and folklore from different regions of the United States. I’m designing logos, advertisements, packaging, boarding passes, airplane seats, letterhead and business cards. Additionally, I am working on designing a better airline experience that will stand out in the current, monotone airline industry.” Tucker has won two awards outside of Southeast’s BFA program. Tucker and his group won the Gold Student Addy award and Best in Show from the TriState Association of Marketing Professionals in Cape Girardeau. The group was recognized for its work on a marketing campaign for the Around Town Art Gallery Association. As for life after graduation, Tucker is in the process of applying for jobs all over Missouri and the United States. “I’d like to work in branding and work at a creative design firm where they specialize in just working with numerous brands and branding their identity,” Tucker said. Tucker’s dream job would be working for AdamsMorioka in Beverly Hills, Calif. “Sean Adams, who’s one of the partners there, is my design hero,” Tucker said. “So working for them would be a dream come true. I like

ASK

DEAN of the College of Education named DR. DIANA RODGERS-ADKINSON WILL START JULY 1

Plans to enact a Student Advisory Board to understand the student experience

has been serving as interim dean.

What were some of the qualifications required for the position as dean? Rodgers-Adkinson: There were quite a few qualifications. We have to have a history of past leadership experience, like being a department chair. We also have to have some scholarly productions as well as experience with accreditation. Those were only a few of the qualifications.

Arrow Reporter

What is your history with teaching and leadership?

outheast Missouri State University named Dr. Diana Rogers-Adkinson as its new Dean of the College of Education on March 12. Dr. RogersAdkinson will take that leadership position on July 1 after the final approval of Southeast’s Board of Regents. She is currently serving as the chair of the department of special education at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and will replace Dr. Tamela Randolph, who

Rodgers-Adkinson: I have been a professor since 1994. That makes me sound really old. I have been the assistant professor at Wichita State in Kansas and the associate professor at Whitewater, where I am now professor. I’ve also been the coordinator for the department, and I’m department chair in special education. I’m currently the director of our local community learning programs as well as president

Kristina Benedict

of the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders.

serve different students’ needs.

Why did you apply at Southeast?

What types of events would you like to implement?

Rodgers-Adkinson: It felt like the perfect match. They actually used a search consultant who contacted me about the position. SEMO is very similar to Whitewater in size and what programs are offered, and they have a very good reputation. I know they have a strong faculty and history, and I want to come and support that and bring some new experiences to the department.

What are some changes you are thinking about making to the education department? Rodgers-Adkinson: Changes are going to come slow. Mainly I want to see what types of programs work best for on-campus and off-campus students as well as non-traditional students who don’t live on campus and can’t roll out of bed and go to class. I want to be able to help

for our area of learning and I want to help SEMO pursue and overcome those changes. But I’m not a sailor, I’m more of a runner.

Rodgers-Adkinson: Well the first thing I noticed is that the College of Education at SEMO doesn’t have a Facebook page. That is how I inform a lot of my students about programs or changes that are going on. I want to implement a Student Advisory Board so that I can understand the student experience. I also plan on meeting individually with each faculty member as well as get out in the schools and see who our partners are. Mainly there will be a lot of meet and greet going on.

You’re a runner?

What does it mean to you to be a dean?

Rodgers-Adkinson: I think being in a leadership position is a lot like running because it’s not a competition. You are striving for a personal best. With running, you are constantly trying to improve yourself gradually and incrementally. If you don’t, your times become stagnant or even fall. If I do my best, then I can help the college move forward.

Rodgers-Adkinson: Being a dean can be compared to steering a really large ship. There are a lot of people on board, and I have to help plot a course with the rest of the crew to make sure we have smooth sailing. There are a lot of changes coming about

Rodgers-Adkinson: Yes, I’m actually in the Masters Spring Events, which are pretty much track for old people. Inside I do the 55-, 60- and 200-meter races, and outside I do the 100- and 200-meter races. I’m hoping to get a group of women to do relays this summer.

As a runner, how do you think your experiences have helped shape you?

What’s your favorite spring activity?

Ash Lance: “Skateboarding and cloud watching.”

Megan Owens: “Adventuring!”

Sara Countryman: “Rolling around in the grass.”

Sarah McGowan: “Taking exciting walks around campus.”

“It’s close to home, and it’s reasonably priced. My parent’s house is only 30-40 minutes away.”

What do you do in your spare time? “I work full time normally, so beside work and school I like college football.” *Due to an internship in Jefferson City, Smith’s interview was done over the phone. 9 percent voter turnout, and we’ve received very little feedback from the students, which means we don’t know what you want. We plan on informing as many students as well as student organizations as we can so that we can get their feedback.”

What are your top two goals for this position if you are elected? “That would be to reach out and contact as many students as possible. And once we have contacted them, find out what they want and do it.”

Why did you choose Southeast? “Because it’s 10 miles away from my house, so I don’t have to pay room and board. I just have to pay a gallon of gas a day to get here and back, so financially it’s a very good choice. It is ABET [Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology] accredited, so the engineering programs are worth taking.”

What do you do in your spare time? “I make chain mail, armor and jewelry. 2008 is when I started, but I actually started to make a business of it within the last year.” is students don’t necessarily know that, so why should they care if they don’t know? As far as naming a second, what we really want to get done, we are actually looking at two or three projects throughout the year. One of which we would like to see somewhere, whether the River Campus or somewhere [on the main campus], opened up for student performances.”

Roleplayers Guild, Anime Party SGA experience: None

Why did you choose Southeast?

What do you believe the role of the vice president is?

“I chose Southeast for a few reasons. One, it’s kind of hard to find a good undergraduate entrepreneurship program. A lot of it is graduate level. They have a very solid program. A lot of that stems from the partnership with the innovation and entrepreneurship center. When I was here looking, I locked my keys in my car and the chief of the DPS, Doug Richards, not only took his time to help me get my keys out, but then said ‘You know what? We’re going to go ahead and just pay for the locksmith to come out.’ And I said if someone who is as busy as he is will take the time to help not even a student, but someone who is looking to be a student, I’m sold.”

“One, I get to be present and learn what other students need and want and relay that to both faculty and staff, as well as to student government. Another thing is that I get to assist the president should he need it in any way. I’m very much into meeting people. That’s what I would do for free, so it fits very well with these sorts of positions.”

What are your top two goals in this position if you are elected? “One, we share the goal of informing students by involving students. Student government really does some really cool things that directly help students on campus and commuters. The problem

What do you like to do in your spare time? “I play video games. I want to turn that into a business. Another thing I like to do is play the piano. I’ve been doing it since I was 6, and I really enjoy it.”
