Southeast฀Missouri฀State฀University’s฀ Center฀for฀Innovation฀and฀Entrepreneurship฀is฀creating฀a฀new฀destination฀ for฀students฀with฀the฀new฀Creative฀Labs฀ and฀Industries฀Incubator. The฀center฀made฀the฀official฀ announcement฀on฀Sept.฀28฀at฀the฀ groundbreaking฀ceremony฀during฀ Southeast’s฀Entrepreneurship฀Week.฀ The฀building฀already฀has฀been฀ purchased,฀and฀construction฀is฀ expected฀to฀start฀this฀winter.฀The฀lab฀is฀ expected฀to฀open฀in฀August฀2014. The฀building,฀which฀is฀located฀on฀ Broadway,฀will฀feature฀a฀modern,฀ industrial฀interior฀complete฀with฀a฀ coffee฀bar.฀The฀lab฀will฀include฀several฀ pieces฀of฀new฀technology,฀such฀as฀3-D฀ modeling฀and฀letterpress฀printers. A฀retail฀boutique,฀called฀Sole฀ Creations,฀also฀will฀be฀in฀the฀lab.฀The฀ boutique฀will฀allow฀students฀to฀create฀ and฀market฀their฀products฀and฀ businesses฀to฀the฀public. Heather฀Holdman,฀a฀project฀ coordinator฀for฀the฀center,฀believes฀that฀ these฀elements฀will฀inspire฀students’฀ entrepreneurial฀abilities. “You’re฀going฀to฀walk฀in,฀and฀you’re฀ going฀to฀see฀this฀3-D฀printer฀and฀this฀ old฀letterpress,”฀Holdman฀said.฀“If฀that฀ doesn’t฀get฀you฀excited฀and฀get฀you฀ creative฀and฀innovative฀to฀go฀through฀ the฀rest฀of฀the฀[lab],฀I฀don’t฀what฀else฀ will.” A฀Student฀Advisory฀Committee฀is฀ also฀involved฀in฀making฀several฀ decisions฀for฀the฀lab.฀So฀far฀the฀students฀ have฀made฀recommendations฀to฀the฀ Faculty฀Advisory฀Board฀about฀how฀the฀ lab฀should฀look฀and฀what฀the฀feel฀of฀the฀ lab฀should฀be.฀The฀committee฀is฀also฀ looking฀at฀the฀different฀departments฀of฀ the฀incubator฀and฀what฀each฀ department฀is฀looking฀for฀in฀the฀lab. “While฀the฀students฀may฀not฀get฀the฀

final฀say,฀we’re฀answering฀all฀those฀ questions฀as฀if฀it’s฀up฀to฀us฀to฀plan฀it฀ because฀that฀was฀what฀[the฀executive฀ director฀of฀the฀center]฀initially฀charged฀ us฀with,”฀Holt฀Walker,฀head฀of฀the฀ Student฀Advisory฀Committee,฀said.฀“If฀ you฀had฀a฀dream฀laboratory฀to฀run,฀as฀ students,฀how฀would฀you฀do฀it?฀That’s฀ basically฀the฀overall฀question฀we’re฀ trying฀to฀answer.”

“We really want students, students who are looking to take their knowledge and passions outside the classroom. We want this to be a great vessel for that.” Holt Walker Walker฀said฀that฀he฀wanted฀to฀make฀ sure฀that฀the฀building฀did฀not฀have฀a฀ “university฀feel”฀to฀it.฀He฀wanted฀it฀to฀ avoid฀heavy฀regulation฀and฀instead฀ focus฀on฀the฀human฀interactions฀that฀ would฀take฀place฀in฀the฀lab. Student฀Advisory฀Committee฀ member฀Chris฀Carnell฀said฀that฀the฀lab฀

will฀give฀students฀the฀tools฀that฀they฀ need฀to฀further฀their฀entrepreneurial฀ skills. “With฀the฀economy฀being฀the฀way฀it฀ is,฀it’s฀not฀the฀same฀as฀it฀was฀for฀our฀ parents,”฀Carnell฀said.฀“You฀don’t฀just฀ get฀a฀job฀and฀keep฀it฀for฀30฀years.฀You฀ need฀to฀create฀and฀value฀yourself.฀So฀ we’re฀giving฀[students]฀the฀ability฀to฀ learn฀how฀to฀do฀that฀the฀right฀way,฀so฀ they’re฀not฀wondering฀what฀am฀I฀ supposed฀to฀do?” Walker฀also฀hopes฀that฀the฀lab฀will฀ be฀an฀interactive฀place฀for฀students฀to฀ explore฀different฀ideas฀outside฀of฀the฀ university฀setting. “We฀really฀want฀students,฀students฀ who฀are฀looking฀to฀take฀their฀ knowledge฀and฀passions฀outside฀the฀ classroom,฀we฀want฀this฀to฀be฀a฀great฀ vessel฀for฀that,”฀Walker฀said. The฀main฀purpose฀of฀the฀new฀lab฀is฀ to฀inspire฀entrepreneurship.฀Carnell฀ thinks฀that฀one฀way฀this฀will฀be฀ accomplished฀is฀through฀the฀coffee฀bar฀ in฀the฀building.฀The฀lab฀will฀work฀ directly฀with฀a฀small฀village฀in฀Costa฀ Rica฀which฀grows฀its฀own฀coffee฀beans. “[Entrepreneurship]฀can฀be฀ something฀as฀small฀as฀going฀to฀a฀village฀ with฀200฀people฀and฀helping฀them฀ better฀their฀lives฀with฀coffee,”฀Carnell฀ said.฀“That’s฀pretty฀simple.”

DANCE group represents gypsy culture GYPSY ROMANCE BEGAN IN 1951 AND HAS PERFORMED ALL OVER THE WORLD

Gypsy Romance tour to make stop at the River Campus ELLEN FIKE STAFF WRITER

Not every dance troupe will have a show that has elements dating back hundreds of years, but the Gypsy Romance show that is coming to the River Campus does . The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, a dance troupe hailing from Budapest that was started in 1951, is bringing their historical show to the River Campus. This troupe, which has performed for more than 7.5 million people throughout its history, is regarded as one of the top touring groups in the world, according to their management, Columbia Artists’ website. The ensemble bases its choreography on authentic dances, some of which are collected from villages in Hungary that have elements of dance that date back hundreds of years, according to their management’s website. The music, costumes and dances all are rooted deeply in Hungarian history. The founding choreographer of the ensemble, Miklos Rabai, had a dream of combining modernism, Hungarian and European pride into a show, and that’s what he used to bring to the stage. The ensemble still uses 14 of Rabai’s works in the current production. The ensemble has toured more than 44 countries spanning four continents over the past 60 years, with a multitude of dancers and two different orchestras, the Folk Orchestra and the Gypsy Orchestra. The Folk Orchestra performs with authentic, traditional instruments, while the Gipsy Orchestra not only does dance accompaniment for the ensemble but

also performs alone. One of the dances during the second act shows off a traditional instrument, a hammered dulcimer, which is a string instrument that is played by using small hammers to strike the strings. It is incorporated into the show to display the uniqueness of the Hungarian dance and instruments. The troupe’s show contains 16 different dances, with each act containing eight dances. The main Hungarian composers’ music used during the show are Franz Lizst, Bela Bartok and Zoltan Kodaly. Although the ensemble performs in it’s touring show, the troupe also perform 90-100 shows annually in the Budai Vigado, located in the troupe’s home of Budapest. Hungary and Romania are both represented during the show, as the countries have very strong relationship together. According to River Campus box office manager Ellen Farrow, the name of the show, “Gypsy Romance,” comes from historical gypsy people, who originated in Hungary and Romania. Gypsy Romance during a performance. Submitted photo Gypsies are also related to the bohemian culture. The music for the show is characterized by tumultuous Emily Messmer, a student at Southeast Missouri State Unirhythms, freedom of expression, strong emotion and impasversity, said that she is excited to see what other dances the sioned surges of thought, according to Columbia Artists’ troupe will include with the traditional dances. Management’s website. The music was inspired by traditional “I love watching them and their gypsy style,” Messmer said. Hungarian folk music but incorporates the troupe’s own uniGypsy Romance featuring the Hungarian State Folk Ensemque style as well. The first dance of the show, Overture: Dances ble will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday in the Donald C. of Szatmar, is supposed to be the most characteristic of HunBedell Performance Hall at the River Campus, and the doors garian dance, showing off a couples’ dance and a men’s dance. will open 30 minutes prior to showtime.

Student ensemble to highlight works by British composers ELLEN FIKE STAFF WRITER

Taking from patriot Paul Revere’s famous warning during his midnight ride at the height of the American Revolutionary War, the upcoming student ensemble performance “The British are Coming!,” will showcase some of Britain’s most important composers. Songs ranging from country dance to folk songs with elements of regal majesty will be performed during the hour-long performance. Nearly 60 students will perform the five songs during the show. Most of the event is focused on the wind symphony, but there are a few percussionists, too. According to sophomore soprano clarinetist Jacki Lynch, the students have prepared for this show since the first Tuesday of the fall semester. Students auditioned for the show the Sunday before classes began, but they had a month before the auditions to prepare the music. “The first concert of the semester is always more classical,” Lynch said. “But as we get farther into the year, it gets more contemporary.” Lynch said that she was excited for the show since she is third chair in the clarinet section, moving up from being

Coming from a background in concert and marching band at her high school in Gosnell, Ark., Lynch said that performing at a collegiate level probably would have been more difficult if she had not participated in all-state band or regional performances. The songs the students are performing include “Along an English Countryside” by Richard L. Saucedo, “Second Suite for Military Band in F Major” by Gustav Holst, “Enigma Variations” by Edward Elgar and scored for band by Earl Slocum, “March of the Mogul Emperors” also by Edward Elgar and arranged by Robert Longfield and “William Byrd Suite” by Gordon Jacob. Lynch said the performance will last about an hour.

Freshman bass clarinetist Sara Riggs said that “Enigma Variations” has an interesting back history, since Elgar named each of the variations after his friends, and the different variations represent their characteristics. “There are so many technical sections in each of these songs, so we’ve spent hours upon hours nailing these parts, whether we practice it on our own or during rehearsal,” Riggs said. “The British are Coming!” will be at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 29 in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the River Campus box office or at rivercampusevents.com.

Current฀manager฀Mark฀Lewis฀was฀ a฀founding฀member฀of฀the฀band.฀The฀ other฀original฀members฀decided฀to฀ leave,฀wanting฀to฀focus฀on฀making฀original฀music,฀but฀Lewis฀decided฀to฀keep฀the฀ tribute฀band฀going.฀Many฀of฀the฀main฀ members,฀Joey฀Curatolo฀(Paul฀McCartney),฀Ralph฀Castelli฀(Ringo฀Starr)฀and฀Joe฀

Bithorn฀(George฀Harrison)฀performed฀ in฀the฀Broadway฀musical฀“Beatlemania”฀ and฀then฀became฀involved฀in฀the฀band,฀ which฀is฀now฀spelled฀“Rain.” The฀musician฀who฀performed฀as฀John฀ Lennon฀got฀sick฀in฀the฀late฀1990s,฀which฀ caused฀him฀to฀have฀to฀stop฀playing.฀He฀ eventually฀died฀from฀brain฀cancer. Landes,฀who฀performed฀in฀“Beatlemania,”฀eventually฀was฀contacted฀by฀ the฀band฀to฀portray฀the฀new฀John฀Lennon.฀Landes฀said฀that฀he฀was฀a฀secondgeneration฀Beatles฀fan,฀and฀his฀parents฀ were฀Beatles฀fans฀as฀well.฀Landes฀got฀ his฀first฀guitar฀when฀he฀was฀10฀years฀old฀ and฀began฀learning฀to฀play฀his฀favorite฀ band’s฀music. “I฀think฀that฀[The฀Beatles]฀were฀so฀ popular฀because฀not฀only฀were฀they฀ amazing฀songwriters,฀but฀they฀had฀good฀ taste,”฀Landes฀said. Having฀more฀than฀200฀books฀and฀ 100฀DVDs฀of฀Beatles฀memorabilia฀in฀his฀ collection,฀Landes฀was฀more฀than฀ready฀ to฀play฀the฀iconic฀Lennon.฀He฀knew฀ to฀watch฀how฀Lennon฀performed฀and฀ acted฀onstage฀and฀began฀to฀pick฀apart฀ the฀performer฀and฀to฀understand฀the฀ man฀that฀people฀did฀not฀always฀see. Landes฀said฀that฀he฀has฀even฀gotten฀to฀meet฀many฀people฀who฀were฀ close฀to฀Lennon,฀such฀as฀Cynthia฀Lennon,฀Lennon’s฀first฀wife฀and฀mother฀to฀ son฀Julian,฀who฀“Hey฀Jude”฀was฀written฀ about.฀He฀has฀also฀met฀Lennon’s฀widow,฀ Yoko฀Ono,฀and฀Lennon฀and฀Ono’s฀son,฀ Sean.

“I฀think฀Yoko฀gets฀a฀bad฀rap,”฀Landes฀ said.฀“People฀don’t฀like฀to฀think฀of฀The฀ Beatles฀feuding,฀but฀she฀didn’t฀break฀The฀ Beatles฀up.฀The฀Beatles฀broke฀The฀Beatles฀up.” Although฀Paul฀McCartney฀and฀Ringo฀ Starr,฀the฀two฀living฀Beatles,฀have฀been฀ invited฀to฀come฀to฀Rain’s฀performances,฀ they฀have฀not฀attended.฀Landes฀said฀that฀ he฀understands,฀though,฀as฀they฀would฀ probably฀be฀“attacked”฀by฀fans. Landes฀said฀that฀his฀favorite฀era฀of฀ The฀Beatles฀is฀the฀early฀era,฀when฀the฀ members฀wore฀black฀suits฀and฀had฀ mop-top฀hairdos.฀He฀also฀said฀that฀the฀ early฀era฀is฀his฀favorite฀to฀portray฀during฀ the฀show,฀as฀well.฀Although฀he฀loves฀ every฀album฀by฀the฀band,฀he฀said฀that฀ his฀favorites฀are฀the฀first฀two฀albums฀ “Please฀Please฀Me”฀and฀“With฀The฀ Beatles.” “They฀had฀such฀a฀drive฀to฀take฀over฀ the฀world,”฀Landes฀said.

so฀Randolph฀felt฀it฀was฀feasible฀to฀add฀the฀ option.฀Hiring฀Dr.฀Emmanuel฀Thompson,฀ who฀specializes฀in฀actuarial฀science,฀helped฀ move฀the฀process฀along.

Academic฀Hall฀is฀one฀of฀the฀oldest฀buildings฀on฀campus฀at฀Southeast฀Missouri฀ State฀University.฀It฀was฀inaugurated฀on฀ May฀22,฀1906,฀but฀it฀never฀had฀undergone฀a฀significant฀renovation฀until฀it฀was฀ closed฀in฀the฀spring฀of฀2012. Academic฀Hall฀will฀have฀a฀grand฀ re-opening฀ceremony฀at฀5:30฀p.m.฀ on฀Thursday฀after฀$25฀million฀in฀ improvements. Academic฀Hall฀serves฀as฀the฀main฀ administrative฀building฀for฀Southeast.฀ Some฀of฀the฀offices฀that฀are฀housed฀there฀include฀admissions,฀Student฀Financial฀Services฀and฀the฀IT฀ Department.฀When฀the฀building฀closed,฀ these฀offices฀had฀to฀be฀relocated฀to฀other฀ places฀on฀campus,฀such฀as฀Memorial฀ Hall,฀which฀is฀located฀next฀to฀Academic฀ Hall.฀Once฀Academic฀Hall฀reopens,฀all฀of฀ these฀offices฀will฀move฀back฀there. “We฀are฀currently฀in฀tight฀quarters฀in฀ Memorial฀Hall,”฀Karen฀Walker฀of฀Student฀Financial฀Services฀said฀over฀the฀ phone.฀“So฀the฀offices฀in฀Academic฀Hall฀ will฀be฀better฀for฀the฀staff.” While฀there฀has฀been฀work฀done฀on฀ the฀building฀before,฀nothing฀major฀was฀ done฀until฀this฀renovation. “Over฀the฀years,฀there฀has฀been฀ repainting฀and฀other฀preservation฀efforts฀done,”฀said฀Diane฀Sides,฀ the฀assistant฀to฀the฀university฀president.฀“But฀the฀windows,฀plumbing฀ and฀electrical฀work฀are฀all฀the฀original฀

“For me personally, it will be like moving back home. Up until our move to Memorial Hall during the renovation, I have spent my entire Southeast career of over 30 years working in Academic Hall.” Karen Walker Once฀the฀building฀reopens฀on฀Oct.฀24,฀ those฀who฀visit฀will฀find฀that฀the฀infrastructure฀has฀been฀completely฀updated.฀Office฀space฀has฀been฀reallocated,฀ and฀the฀first฀floor฀has฀been฀completely฀renovated฀to฀make฀room฀for฀a฀“one฀ stop”฀services฀area฀where฀students฀can฀ find฀several฀vital฀offices,฀such฀as฀Student฀ Financial฀Services,฀the฀registrar’s฀office฀ and฀the฀IT฀help฀desk฀in฀one฀place.

Despite฀these฀steps฀to฀bring฀Academic฀Hall฀up฀to฀modern฀standards,฀care฀ has฀been฀taken฀to฀maintain฀the฀historic฀ architecture฀that฀people฀have฀come฀to฀ associate฀with฀the฀building. “I฀have฀seen฀the฀interior฀of฀Academic฀ Hall,฀and฀I฀believe฀they฀did฀a฀spectacular฀ job฀at฀maintaining฀the฀historical฀appearance฀of฀the฀building,”฀Sides฀said. All฀of฀the฀displaced฀offices฀will฀also฀ return฀to฀Academic฀Hall. “For฀me฀personally,฀it฀will฀be฀like฀ moving฀back฀home,”฀Walker฀said.฀“Up฀ until฀our฀move฀to฀Memorial฀Hall฀during฀ the฀renovation,฀I฀have฀spent฀my฀entire฀ Southeast฀career฀of฀over฀30฀years฀working฀in฀Academic฀Hall.” The฀grand฀re-opening฀ceremony฀on฀ Oct.฀24฀will฀feature฀speeches฀from฀Missouri฀Gov.฀Jay฀Nixon฀and฀former฀university฀presidents฀Kala฀Stroup฀and฀Bill฀ Stacy.฀Southeast’s฀Department฀of฀Music฀ will฀provide฀music,฀and฀the฀event฀is฀free฀ and฀open฀to฀the฀general฀public.

Generations of graduates As Southeast has changed, the Cox family’s university of choice has stayed the same MARISSA FAWCETT STAFF WRITER

Beep. Beep. Beep. It’s the alarm going off for the third time. He drags himself out of bed, throws on a Redhawks T-shirt and hurries out the door of Vandiver Hall to start the trek across campus to his lecture class in Dempster Hall. He’s met by his 70-plus classmates and finds the last empty seat in the back of the classroom. He knows just a handful of people in the room. After class, he meets his friends at the University Center for lunch. Chick-fil-A never seems to disappoint. The rest of the day will consist of studying, club meetings, working off that Chick-fil-A at the Recreation Center - North and somehow managing to maintain the slightest glimpse of a social life. For some, this chaos is a typical example of life as a Southeast Missouri State University student today. Keyword: today. It’s hard for current students to imagine Southeast’s campus before Dempster Hall, Vandiver Hall, the University Center, the Redhawks mascot and the other signature aspects of campus that are associated with Southeast today. But for the long line of alumni in Southeast junior Jason Cox’s family, the early times of Southeast without all of these modern aspects of the university are ones his family cherishes most. Cox is in his first semester of studying biology at Southeast after transferring from the University of Missouri. It wasn’t hard to decide where he would end up next after leaving Mizzou because of the large class sizes and distance from home. Southeast met all of Cox’s requirements. But if he did happen to have any concerns, he could always ask his parents, uncles, grandparents and other relatives about their experience at Southeast. All of them are alumni of the university. Although much of the college experience at Southeast stays the same — the dread of waking up for an 8 a.m. class or keeping up with a busy college schedule — there is no denying the growth and how the look of the university has changed from the time Cox’s grandpa taught at Southeast in the ‘60s. Cox’s grandmother, Betty Cox, looks back at the times spent at Southeast years ago while her husband Robert L. Cox Sr. taught at the university. He was hired to teach and set up a print shop for the university in 1964. “When he was first hired by SEMO, he was hired to develop a print shop or to plan and buy and whatever you do to set up a print shop for the university and develop a printing program for the students,” Betty Cox said of her late husband. “He used to teach journalism majors.” The print shop was located in Academic Hall and printed any materials the university needed such as pamphlets, brochures, commencement booklets, photographs and more. With such a heavy workload of items to print, Betty Cox often found herself staying late in the print shop with her husband to make sure a job was finished by its deadline. “We were there a lot,” Betty Cox said. “For example, early on in his career, he used to print the commencement programs with all the graduates in it, and they wouldn’t get us the names of the graduates until like the night before or the morning of so he’d probably be there most of the night printing the commencement program, and I’d be there helping him.” Even though Betty Cox didn’t work at or attend Southeast, she still knew all of the faculty members and their spouses by being a member of what she called “faculty dames.” “Back in the day, there were mainly male faculty, so the wives got together once a month for fellowship and to be acquainted and so forth,” Betty Cox said. The days of knowing all of the faculty members at Southeast have long passed for her and the faculty dames. “Probably the greatest change has been the growth,” Betty Cox said. “Because for years, we knew every faculty member by their name and the spouse and then it has grown so large that now we don’t.” As of this fall, Southeast had enrolled 11,917 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled and during the 2012-2013 school year employed 1,274 faculty and staff members, which makes it nearly impossible to know everyone at Southeast.

While the size of campus has grown, some traditions haven’t changed for Betty Cox over the years. She and her husband used to buy season tickets for Southeast’s football and basketball games and, although her husband retired in 1991 and died in 2007, she continues to buy them today and support Southeast’s athletics department. She also occasionally attends performances at the River Campus. But she’s not always going to these events alone. Her son and Jason Cox’s father, Robert L. Cox Jr., attends some of the games with his mother to see his alma mater. Cox Jr. graduated from Southeast in 1983 with a degree in accounting. It wasn’t hard for him to decide what university to attend after spending so many years on the campus prior to his freshman year at Southeast. Not only was Southeast close to home and affordable, it was where he spent so much time helping his father in the print shop and where he went to elementary school and high school. He explained that Scully’s second floor used to be an elementary school, and the first floor was a high school, so that’s where he went to school since his father was teaching at Southeast. “It was a huge part of my life,” Cox Jr. said. “I spent the first 21 years of my life on the campus. SEMO was always there every day.” Cox Jr. is still getting used to some of the changes that have occurred at Southeast since his time here. “I’m just getting over that we’re the Redhawks,” he said. During his time at the university, Southeast’s mascot was the Indians. The mascot changed to the Redhawk in the spring 2005 semester. Other changes also have taken some getting used to for this alumnus. Cox Jr. explained how the business classes used to be in Academic Hall, the University Center wasn’t built until he was in high school and the River Campus wasn’t even being talked about. Cox Jr. is one of three children in his family to attend Southeast. His younger and older brother both graduated from the university. His younger brother, Scott Cox, graduated with a communications degree and now works as a radio personality for a station in Columbia, Mo., called Clear 99 on 99.3 FM. The older brother, Charles Cox, graduated with a music degree but died after battling cancer and now has a scholarship in his name for Southeast students pursuing a music degree called the Charles W. Cox Music Scholarship. Jason Cox’s mother, Janie Cox, also graduated from Southeast with a degree in elementary education and taught second grade for 30 years. Janie Cox’s father and two of her brothers also graduated from Southeast, and her mother and another brother also attended the university. Jason and Betty Cox both agreed that having so much of the family attend Southeast gives them a unique bond. “Now it’s more of a nostalgic type of thing,” Cox Jr. said. “It’ll always be special. It’s not a big part of my life now, but it is a big part of my past.” Southeast continues to change and grow to this day with the addition of the New Hall this fall, the unveiling of Academic Hall’s renovations during homecoming and the beginning of construction of a residence hall at the River Campus. It may be hard to believe that Southeast could change any more than it already has over the years as Betty and Robert L. Cox, Jr. described, but then again, these alumni never would have pictured Southeast how it is today. So it makes one have to wonder, how will the memories of the Southeast of today match up with the Southeast of tomorrow? With alumni expected to visit this homecoming weekend, it will be a reminder of just how much the university has progressed over the years. There is sure to be reminiscing of the memories made, stories of the times spent in the buildings that have remained over the years and plenty of talk about the small details that remind each alum of Southeast. But one thing is for sure: each new year of graduates will remember Southeast a little differently than the ones that came before them.

The days of knowing all of the faculty members at Southeast have long passed for her and the faculty dames. “Probably the greatest change has been the growth,” Betty Cox said. “Because for years, we knew every faculty member by their name and the spouse and then it has grown so large that now we don’t.” As of this fall, Southeast had enrolled 11,917 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled and during the 2012-2013 school year employed 1,274 faculty and staff members, which makes it nearly impossible to know everyone at Southeast.

While the size of campus has grown, some traditions haven’t changed for Betty Cox over the years. She and her husband used to buy season tickets for Southeast’s football and basketball games and, although her husband retired in 1991 and died in 2007, she continues to buy them today and support Southeast’s athletics department. She also occasionally attends performances at the River Campus. But she’s not always going to these events alone. Her son and Jason Cox’s father, Robert L. Cox Jr., attends some of the games with his mother to see his alma mater. Cox Jr. graduated from Southeast in 1983 with a degree in accounting. It wasn’t hard for him to decide what university to attend after spending so many years on the campus prior to his freshman year at Southeast. Not only was Southeast close to home and affordable, it was where he spent so much time helping his father in the print shop and where he went to elementary school and high school. He explained that Scully’s second floor used to be an elementary school, and the first floor was a high school, so that’s where he went to school since his father was teaching at Southeast. “It was a huge part of my life,” Cox Jr. said. “I spent the first 21 years of my life on the campus. SEMO was always there every day.” Cox Jr. is still getting used to some of the changes that have occurred at Southeast since his time here. “I’m just getting over that we’re the Redhawks,” he said. During his time at the university, Southeast’s mascot was the Indians. The mascot changed to the Redhawk in the spring 2005 semester. Other changes also have taken some getting used to for this alumnus. Cox Jr. explained how the business classes used to be in Academic Hall, the University Center wasn’t built until he was in high school and the River Campus wasn’t even being talked about. Cox Jr. is one of three children in his family to attend Southeast. His younger and older brother both graduated from the university. His younger brother, Scott Cox, graduated with a communications degree and now works as a radio personality for a station in Columbia, Mo., called Clear 99 on 99.3 FM. The older brother, Charles Cox, graduated with a music degree but died after battling cancer and now has a scholarship in his name for Southeast students pursuing a music degree called the Charles W. Cox Music Scholarship. Jason Cox’s mother, Janie Cox, also graduated from Southeast with a degree in elementary education and taught second grade for 30 years. Janie Cox’s father and two of her brothers also graduated from Southeast, and her mother and another brother also attended the university. Jason and Betty Cox both agreed that having so much of the family attend Southeast gives them a unique bond. “Now it’s more of a nostalgic type of thing,” Cox Jr. said. “It’ll always be special. It’s not a big part of my life now, but it is a big part of my past.” Southeast continues to change and grow to this day with the addition of the New Hall this fall, the unveiling of Academic Hall’s renovations during homecoming and the beginning of construction of a residence hall at the River Campus. It may be hard to believe that Southeast could change any more than it already has over the years as Betty and Robert L. Cox, Jr. described, but then again, these alumni never would have pictured Southeast how it is today. So it makes one have to wonder, how will the memories of the Southeast of today match up with the Southeast of tomorrow? With alumni expected to visit this homecoming weekend, it will be a reminder of just how much the university has progressed over the years. There is sure to be reminiscing of the memories made, stories of the times spent in the buildings that have remained over the years and plenty of talk about the small details that remind each alum of Southeast. But one thing is for sure: each new year of graduates will remember Southeast a little differently than the ones that came before them.

STUDENTS organize show to educate MICHAEL ROCKAFELLOW, ALSO KNOWN AS “BUTTERSCOTCH,” WILL BE THE MASTER OF CEREMONIES OF THE DRAG SHOW ON OCT. 24

Gay Straight Alliance seeks to challenge gender stereotypes with drag show ASHLEY BOOKS STAFF WRITER

Southeast Missouri State University’s Gay Straight Alliance, a student organization, is continuing to challenge gender stereotypes with its annual drag show. Daniel Eckert, president of GSA, said that the purpose of this event is to educate the students about what drag really is and to show them that the performers are normal people. “I want [the students] to know that, just because these people seem strange, they’re really not,” Eckert said. “They’re really just having fun and showing off what they love to do. It’s nothing to be scared of or to fear. It’s really just a fun experience as if you went to a bar and saw people dancing within the club. That’s pretty much all it is. I really hope they get out of it that these are people just like anybody else.” Becca Bell, secretary and treasurer for GSA, said the first drag show she attended was at Southeast. She said that seeing what drag is and how much effort the entertainers put into their performance has taught her to appreciate drag more. To prepare for the event, GSA received funding from Dollars for Innovative Campus Events and the Student Government Association for decorations and to help fund the performers. GSA has also designed flyers, created pamphlets to hand out to attendees that will explain what drag is and decided on who the performers will be. Despite being held during homecoming week, Eckert believes that the event still will attract a lot of students. “Luckily, last year it happened on the same day that Tony LaRussa came in for the speaker series, and we still had a huge turnout for that,” Eckert said. “So I’m hoping that the same thing will happen this year.”

In past years, the show has been more focused on drag queens. This year’s event will have a more diverse group of performers that includes both drag kings, which are women dressing as men and drag queens, which are men dressing as women. There are three drag kings and five drag queens set to perform. “A lot of people, when they think of drag shows, it’s always the very extreme drag queens with the large makeup,” Bell said. “Drag kings are a very different kind of side of it. People always picture the men dressing up as women, but not really the women dressing up as men. So it’s kind of a different perspective, which is equally showing students what drag is about.” Michael Rockafellow, also known as “Butterscotch,” will be this year’s master of ceremonies for the show. Rockafellow has been a performer in Southeast’s drag shows for the past several years. One way Rockafellow will educate the students about drag is by performing to Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way.” Rockafellow has done this number before, and said it allows him to completely transform himself for the audience. “I went from being Butterscotch to being Michael, and the crowd seemed to really be touched by it because I just made myself very vulnerable on stage,” Rockafellow said. “So I’ve thought about doing that.” Rockasellow hopes that his performance will inspire students to be comfortable with who they are. “Me being a drag queen, I’ve been through a lot, just personally as a boy and then as a drag queen,” Rockafellow said. “So I want something that can really just touch people and make them just see everything.” The show will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the University Center ballrooms A and B. Admission is free to the public.

ALUMNI honored during homecoming SEVEN RECIPIENTS WERE CHOSEN FOR THIS YEAR’S ALUMNI MERIT AWARD

High school superintendent receives Alumni Merit Award KELLY LU HOLDER MANAGING EDITOR

The annual Alumni Merit Award is the highest honor given to Southeast alumni Dr. Bernard DuBray is one of seven recipients of this year’s Alumni Merit Award at Southeast Missouri State University. More than 70,000 Southeast alumni were considered to receive the award. Dubray, who spoke to the Arrow over the phone, graduated from Southeast in 1969 with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a double major in social science and history and a minor in biology. In 1982, DuBray became the superintendent of the Fort Zumwalt school district in St. Charles County, which is the sixth largest school district in the state with more than 19,000 students, five high schools, four middle schools and 15 elementary schools. Dubray has had a career in education for 45 years but has been a superintendent for the Fort Zumwalt school district for 29 years. He is now known as the longest serving superintendent in the same district in the state of Missouri. Other recipients for the Alumni Merit Award include: Cynthia Boren, sports editor of The Washington Post, Dr. Julie Harper, practicing dermatologist and associate professor of dermatology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, Dennis J. Kehm, a retired Circuit Judge, Dr. Randall Otto, professor and chair of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Texas, Jim Piatchek, a Chartered Life underwriter, a Chartered Financial consultant and a Chartered Mutual Fund counselor and Rodney Hudson, a distinguished actor and preformer and a faculty member in the drama department at Syracuse University. The recepients will receive their awards during homecoming week.

Q: What was your reaction when you found

out you were a recipient of this award? A: Well, you know, you’re kind of flabbergasted because you don’t go out and look for these awards, and those things they kind of just happen. I think it just makes you very proud that whatever you’ve done in your career was good enough that your original university thought enough of you to call you out.

Q: Are you still heavily involved with Southeast? A: I attend as many of their alumni meetings here in St. Louis as I can. I go back to Southeast every so often. Our school district has a partnership with Southeast in our “Grow Your Own Teacher” program where we have a foundation here in our district that helps pay for students who go to college and become a teacher. They’re selected through a competitive process and then we pay for most of their education and then they can come back and teach for us for four years.

I think it just makes you very proud [being nominated] that whatever you’ve done in your career was good enough that your original university thought enough of you to call you out. Dr. Bernard DuBray Those are hard to find areas, so Cape was one of them. I think we have five institutions that we have a relationship with, so that gives me the chance to come back and visit with the kids and take them to dinner and those kinds of things. So I do get back periodically, you know I’ve really had a great start to my career, and it all started in Cape.

Q: How did Southeast prepare you for your future as a superintendent? A: Probably the biggest thing is that it taught

Dr. Bernard DuBray Submitted photo me self-reliance. I got to obviously come down there, and I was really on my own, as any other college student would be. I saw a lot of my friends who didn’t make it because they didn’t have that self-control and that self-reliance, and I just learned a lot about taking care of business and became dedicated to the teaching profession, so I just think it was a wonderful place to get started and get your feet on the ground in your chosen profession.

Q: Is there a specific thing you miss most about your time here at Southeast? A: I had a professor, Dr. Lewis Canter, who was a professor of Russian history, and Dr. Canter was a great, great lecturer. His specialty at the time was the Kennedy assassination. Of course that happened in 1963, so it was still pretty fresh in everybody’s mind. I came to Cape in 1965. Dr. Canter was a very difficult professor, but he would take the students who got A’s

and they would come to his house and have dinner. Usually there wasn’t very many of us, and he would kind of regale us with all of his theories on the Kennedy assassination and he had photos and things like that. So that was amazing because No. 1, I got an A from the guy because he was tough and No. 2 that he was so well read and so well-schooled in the Kennedy assassination. Today it’s kind of lost a little bit of its luster because it’s been so long ago, but in those days for everybody it was just kind of a thrill to have somebody of his stature who would share his beliefs with you.

Q: How excited are you for homecoming 2013? A: I will be there to ride in the parade, and I am excited about that. There’s not many people left down there that I know, but I’m sure I’ll see some people I know from the alumni meetings we have up here. But yeah, I’m really looking forward to it.

Where is your favorite place to take a day trip away from Cape Girardeau?

Katelyn Brotherton Actually where I’m going Hope Hall My favorite place to day trip would for fall break is Branson, Missouri. Sometimes be St. Louis. we’ve done it in a day, but most of the time we go for the weekend.

Audrey Jiacomini I’d love to go to Nashville, Tennessee, for a day trip.

First฀I฀painted฀the฀pumpkin฀black฀and฀then฀ divided฀the฀pumpkin฀into฀horizontal฀thirds.฀I฀ took฀some฀glue฀and฀covered฀the฀top฀layer฀with฀ it,฀then฀poured฀a฀whole฀container฀of฀glitter฀ on฀it.฀I฀bought฀all฀of฀the฀products฀from฀Hobby฀ Lobby,฀which฀only฀cost฀about฀$10.
