Peggy’s remains open during appeal
Students express concern over tavern closing
Staff Writer email@example.com
Peggy’s Tavern, a local establishment and longtime campus tradition, was forced to close after its liquor license was revoked by the Des Moines City Council over the summer. The owner, Mark Graziano, requested to renew the bar’s license in July, but his request was denied due to the bar’s failed compliance checks and concerns regarding Graziano’s past. Graziano, who was indicted on 16 federal charges, filed an appeal. According to Iowa law, Peggy’s can remain open while the appeal is processed The bar reopened on Aug. 20, after being closed for about a month. This was a relief to students who consider Peggy’s an important part of Drake University culture. “When I thought Peggy’s was closing, I thought a Drake tradition was ending and that’s the really sad part,” said senior Anthony Sinn. “Yes, Peggy’s is a bar and people drink there, but the memories it holds are the real loss. Friends are made there, laughs are had and I’m sure some people even fall in love there.” Beloved by the Drake community, the news of Peggy’s closing was upsetting, especially for students beginning their 20142015 school year. Peggy’s was established nearly 80 years ago. The thought of it no longer being a part of the Drake experience caused emotional reactions among students.
“I was lost and confused,” said senior psychology major, Mackenzie Even. “My first gut reaction was that it couldn’t possibly be real. Naturally, I sought out second, third and fourth confirmations of the news to make sure it was accurate. I then proceeded to spiral into a mild depression that lasted approximately three hours.” The reactions varied, but some, feel Peggy’s plays and important role in the Drake neighborhood. “At first, I wasn’t surprised because the real miracle here is that Peggy’s passed eight out of 13 liquor checks,” said senior biochemistry, cell and molecular biology major, Allison White. “But after realizing it was really gone, it was, for lack of a better word, shocking. Although Peggy’s is a campus bar, it is an icon in the Drake world and is something students look forward to coming back to as Drake alumni. It belongs here.” Senior public relations major, Jordan Hyde reflected White’s sentiments. “Every Drake student and alumnus knows how many memories Peggy’s holds. It’s not only a bar to us, it’s a place that holds history and tradition, especially around Drake Relays time.” When asked for an interview, a Peggy’s co-owner and bartender were hesitant and refused comment. An appeal hearing for the renewal of Peggy’s liquor license will be held in October. Until then, Peggy’s will continue business as
usual. When asked if allegations against Peggy’s and its pending chance of survival would impact attendance, students had optimistic responses. “I will never stop going to Peggy’s. As a senior, you tend to stop every once in awhile and think, ‘this may be the last time you do this or that,’” White said. Hyde’s sentiments mirrored White’s. “Now that Peggy’s is open
again, I will definitely be there frequently,” Hyde said. “I have a lot of close friends that work there, so it’s always fun visiting them there. I hope Peggy’s will win their appeal process and can stay open for good.” Even agreed. “I absolutely will be going back frequently,” she said. “Peggy’s is like a second home and there is no place I’d rather be.”

Stiger leaves Drake to pursue new opportunity Sarah Grossman
News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
This semester, LaTasha Stiger, Director of Campus Programming Orientation, Student Activities Board (SAB) and Multicultural Organization liason, is leaving Drake University for new experiences. “I wouldn’t call it resigning. I’ve had an awesome time working here, but every time you’re in a position there are times that you feel like you’re ready for some more challenges,” Stiger said. “I’ve decided to look for some more challenges in other locations.” Stiger, who has been a part of the Drake family for over six years, came to Drake to fill a brand new position, Director of Campus Programing. The position was originally a part of a Student Senate proposal to create a central liaison and student resource for

THE STUDENT NEWSPAPER FOR DRAKE UNIVERSITY SINCE 1884
the multicultural organizations. Melissa Sturm-Smith, Associate Provost for Academic Excellence and Student Success, hired Stiger and acted as supervisor for the new position. “I was her direct supervisor for six years, and so we worked sideby-side in a lot of things over in the Office of Student Leadership,” Sturm-Smith said. “Then, when I transitioned to this current position, she and I still maintained very close connections.” While Stiger has impacted and impressed staff, it is not just them that Stiger has interacted with. Whether Stiger was serving as ELM instructor, SAB advisor or a supervisor to orientation leaders, Stiger has proven herself a successful and effective part of student affairs. “She has impacted me in countless ways as a mentor and a friend,” said Natalie Larson,
psychology major. “Tasha is someone that I can always count on to support, challenge, listen and inspire me.” A national search for Stiger’s replacement is underway. A search committee led by Tony Tyler, Director of Olmsted Center Operations, was formed and have begun looking for Stiger’s replacement “We are going to have to work really hard to find someone who isn’t going to be the next LaTasha Stiger, but is going to bring that same commitment to students and willingness to dig in and work side-by-side with students, faculty and staff,” Sturm-Smith said. The search may be harder than initially thought. “She’s going to leave a big hole for a while,” Sturm-Smith said. “She’s a go-to person. You think about the go-to people in our lives, and she is one of them.”
While some may feel a little lost without Stiger’s guidance and assistance, Stiger has faith in Drake’s ability to continue without her. “I know that everyone is going to do great work. They’re going to continue doing everything they were doing while I was here,” Stiger said. “I truly know that.” Although students and staff are sad to see Stiger leave Drake, they wish her the best. “I am excited for her and her next adventure as well as for the new students who will have the amazing opportunity to work with her,” Larson said. “We’re going to miss her, but her journey is taking her to a new place,” Sturm-Smith said. “When you love people, you have to let them go, and Drake has loved Tasha but now we have to support her in what she is doing next.”

Students welcome Hillel House Students rally in solidarity with Ferguson Sarah Fulton
Staff Writer email@example.com
Tacopocolypse Tacos and free T-shirts welcomed 46 students to their new home, the Hillel house, on Tuesday, Aug. 26. The inaugural event marked the first time the house was open to students. “It is great. It is an experience that Hillel has been waiting for a really long time,” said Hillel President, Max Laskso. “If we showed you what this was four years ago compared to what it is now, to see the growth of it, it is beyond words.” Hillel first had the desire to purchase a house four years ago. This past spring The Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines offered to purchase the house and renovated it for Hillel. “As long as we had programming, they would be willing to help us get it,” Lasko said. In the past, Hillel shared the Wesley House with several other organizations. Hillel had its own room, but the shared nature of the Wesley House created timing conflicts. Each organization that shared the house had one night of the week reserved. “So you could not have an event on a Tuesday,” Lasko said. “We had to weave our way through the schedule.” Senior Mallory Rasky, an environmental science and music double major, said that moving from a shared house to the new Hillel house provides a solid foundation for the organization. “I think my hope is that someone will always be here. If I come by, people will always be here to hang out,” Rasky said. “I think that would be the best
possible thing for Hillel to take off.” Owning the house also allows Hillel to decorate and create a personal atmosphere. A painting with the words “Drake Hillel” hangs over fireplace and another with Jewish stars adorns the dining room wall. “(Sharing is difficult) because you cannot personalize it. Here we can put up an Israel flag or Jewish Stars,” sophomore Becca Cohen, a marketing and finance major, said. “You have to be respectful when you are sharing a space with someone, but that doesn’t create as much of an atmosphere.” The atmosphere at the house includes free drinks, free laundry and cable. To gain access, students register and receive an entry code. They can use the house at any time to study, hang out or attend events like “Jewish Movie Night.” “I think it is important to have a house in order to be able to all group together somewhere safe and to have somewhere to call our own,” said First-year Samantha Weisbein, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology major. Now that Hillel has opened the house, the next step is to ensure its financial stability. The organization will host a fundraising brunch for parents and students on September 21. “We want this house to live on its own, essentially. We don’t want to be worried about budgeting,” Lasko said. “We want something to be going on at all times. This is just to make sure that things like utilities or the mortgage are taken care of.” He is excited for all the possibilities that the new house will provide Hillel at Drake. “This is our house, our identity,” Lasko said. “It is pretty neat.”
HANNAH MIKKALSON, BEN JOHNSON and OLIVIA O’HEA stand together on Aug. 25th at the rally to empathize with the shooting of Michael Brown and the city of Ferguson, Missouri. SARAH GROSSMAN | NEWS EDITOR Sarah Grossman
News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
On August 25, Drake students stood on the corner of 25th and University Ave. to show solidarity in memory of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old, Ferguson, Missouri resident shot and killed by a local cop. The event, taking place on the day Brown was to enter college, had students and staff in attendance. Tony Tyler, Director of Olmsted Operations, was one of the faculty members in attendence. “I think, as staff and faculty, we want to support what students are doing,” Tyler said. “We want to support their concerns, especially around social issues.” The Drake community stood in solidarity because it is an issue students and staff believe needs to be discussed. “It’s important because this is not a local problem just in Ferguson, but it’s rather a national systemic problem, and it affects everybody,” said Josh Mascharka, junior rhetoric, media and social change major. “We’re all people. When one group of people is being oppressed, it affects all of us. It limits everybody’s freedom and ability to pursue life.
Speaker, Darriana Donegan, junior psychology and sociology major, has a personal connection to the incident. “I am originally from St. Louis, so my family lives about five minutes away from all the stuff that has been going on,” Donegan said. “Mike Brown was 18 and living in the same area as my brothers, that easily could have been them. It could have been my nephew. It could have been my dad. It could have been someone I know.” Jennifer Harvey, associate professor of religion and department chair, assisted in organizing the last-minute event. “It wasn’t a very pre-thought, organized event,” Harvey said. “We said, ‘Okay, we can do it. Let’s meet at noon.’ I pretty much just sent out the link.” This impromptu event gained a lot of attention from the Drake community. Students, such as Olivia O’Hea, junior law, politics and society and public relations double major, attended because they could empathize with a young student. “It’s really easy to distance yourself from these issues, but if you view Michael Brown as you view yourself, which is a teenage student going into his first year
of college, it puts things into perspective for you,” O’Hea said. Other students attended because they felt it was their civic duty. “I feel a tremendous amount of responsibility to be a voice for communities that aren’t being heard or treated fairly,” said Benjamin Verhasselt, junior politics major. While some students may believe Ferguson, Missouri is quite far away, others feel like this issue hits home. “It impacts Drake and specifically Drake’s students,” Donegan said. “We’re privileged enough to go to university, to have a voice and to be able to educate and inform the community around us.” Verhasselt believes a lot of effort must be put forth to bring about change. “Ultimately, it’s a daily effort. A daily effort to understand viewpoints other than your own and a daily effort to lend a helping hand to someone who hasn’t had the same opportunities we, as Drake students, have probably had,” Verhasselt said. “Fight the power.”

Changes present room for growth Project Drake encourages consistency Over eggs and toast, I shared with my parents a theme for my bat mitzvah party — The Courtney Times. It was a theme that could encapsulate different milestones throughout my 13 years, yet the idea made me somewhat apprehensive. Would people think I actually read the news? How embarrassing would that be, I exclaimed to my parents. A lot has changed in those seven years. And the changes are not stopping anytime soon. The 2014-2015 school year is sure to be filled with extensive adjustments. With the search for a university president and even the tediousness of navigating the new keycard system, Drake is diving into some unchartered waters. As a staff, we too, will encounter unfamiliarity through our transition into a weekly paper. This spring, I made the tough decision to change our print schedule — a decision the staff continually contended. In order for The Times-Delphic to report on articles that not only informed but also entertained readers, I felt an overhaul was necessary. Drake is small — really small. And while I love the close-knit community that our university provides, printing twice a week was doing more harm than good. The Times-Delphic should be a paper people are excited to pick up on their walk to class, but the articles became redundant, and writers’ commitment started to dwindle. Too much of something is never good, and 16 pages of content weekly ultimately became too much. In order for The Times-Delphic to offer thoughtful, well-written and creative content we put forth a renovated paper. Printed weekly, the 12-page Times-Delphic will hit newsstands on Wednesday. Through my evolution on The TimesDelphic, from copy editor to now editor-inchief, I’ve watched the changes. I recognize
the challenges and I’m eager to present our readers with this weekly issue. It is our hope to produce a paper that we are proud of and that you the readers are mutually enthusiastic about. By no means are these changes a bad thing. Rather, they are an opportunity for We are looking forward to expanding our online presence, through increased social media usage, photo galleries and online only stories. While The Times-Delphic is tailored for the Drake community, it is my hope that our content increasingly expands beyond Drake and identifies issues in the Des Moines area, as well as in the national and international arena. Collaboration between editors and staff writers will be on the forefront of our agenda. Communication is the key to The Times-Delphic’s success. We hope our weekly edition better serves the community, and encourage you to pick up a copy of our new 12-page installment next Wednesday. True, this year is filled with adjustments, but it is also filled with unrivaled potential, a challenge I’m excited to navigate.

Drake is at a major crossroads. The president is retiring, the backbone of the institution is taking new shape and the student leadership is evolving — structurally and internally — and there is constant pressure for student leaders to present results, increase event attendance, raise social awareness, spend student fees effectively and efficiently and better student life as a whole. Although Drake is not an institution in crisis, many forms of change are upon us. Consistency of values and sustainability of long-term goals are absolutely critical from the top down. Student turnover is an inevitable change that naturally occurs at any university. The only things at Drake that stay relatively the same are the buildings, grounds, faculty, administration and alumni. In a bold effort to captivate, preserve, challenge and live the Drake experience, Project Drake was born. Project Drake encompasses the meaning of being a member of the Drake community and gives students, faculty and staff a creed to live and learn by. This plan will soon be introduced to both the Student Senate and the President’s Panel. This proposed project will include a student-driven strategic plan for student leaders and organizations to follow. My main mission is to preserve and protect the Drake experience and our values amongst all this change. My vision is to lead Drake students, faculty and administration toward making Drake University the best it possibly can be for all. Project Drake isn’t simply an idea or a one-year plan to rally behind. It’s a way of learning, living and leading those around us to continue our current efforts of improving Drake. When it comes time to constructing this vision, I will ask: “What are we doing
now that makes Drake better, and what should we be doing to make Drake the best?” It’s simple, yet should challenge us to evaluate our academics, organizations, programs, involvement and time at Drake. This university is experiencing sweeping change. We can either watch nervously on the sidelines as new faces arrive, or we can instill what it means to be a student here, welcome these new faces in, and build Drake together with Project Drake as our foundation. My hopes are to have Project Drake fully developed by the end of this month, rolling out alongside with the “Senate 60,” the Student Senate’s list of 60 goals, initiatives, ideas and visions for the academic school year. At the end of the day, we need something and someone with a vision to carry us through all of this change. I hope that Project Drake is our solution.

Overcome homesickness with this DIY project
Hometown craft made with items from around the house Everyone can get a little homesick when they begin college, but here’s a project to keep your hometown in mind. Not only is your hometown state’s outline useful for this project, but really any type of design, character or object, would work. What you need A lot of the materials I had laying around the house, but most of them you can pick up at a craft store like Michaels, or even at Walmart. A piece of wood I used a 10 by eight inches but you can choose any size you want. Newspaper Used to cover the surface you are working on. Paint Brush Preferably one that you would paint a room with. Paint Behr Premium Plus in Purple works best. State Shape A cut-out of your state or design that you are using. Nails thin nails work best, I used Finish Nails size one and a half inches. Other Items A hammer A black Sharpie Embroidery string or yarn
STEP 3 Painting
Lay out the newspaper so that it is covering the entire work space. Place the piece of wood on top of the newspaper and begin painting it. It is important to paint the front and the sides, you don’t have to worry about the back because it will either be hung up or leaning against something where it will not be seen. Because the paint I used was left over from paint used for my room at home, I only needed one coat. Depending on the paint used, two coats may be required, so use your best judgment.
Once the paint has dried, and make sure it is completely dry, otherwise this step will not work, trace the outline of your desired state or design in Sharpie. Depending on how much detail you want, pay attention to all the lines or curves in your stencil.

Next it’s time to space out the nails. I tried to keep them about a half-inch apart and put one on each corner or pointy part of the outline. When hammering the nails in, it’s best to start at the top of your outline and follow it down, then back to the top so that there is always space for the hammer and your hand. Hammer the nails into the wood so that they are stable; nails that wobble will fall out and ruin the project.
string is too high on the nail or not tight enough, it will come undone so it is super important to always keep the string tight. Continue- wrapping the string around the nails, making sure each nail has at least one loop around it, and always go across or diagonally from the nail you were just working with. When that string is done, knot it around the finishing nail.
Here’s where it gets tricky. Looping the string around the nails and getting them to stay can get difficult. When starting, tie the string in a knot around the nail you desire to start with. From there, pull the string to another nail across or diagonally from it, and loop it around the nail. Sometimes if the

Fraternity looks to re-charter on campus
Phi Delta Theta returns with fresh principles, aspirations Cole Norum
Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
Nathan Erickson graduated this May with a degree in Marketing from the school he almost died at five years ago. Erickson, then 19, was found unconscious at an event for firstyear Greek pledges with a blood alcohol level of 0.5, a result of being forced by members of the fraternity Phi Delta Theta to drink multiple cups of 190-proof Everclear grain alcohol after having already consumed five beer can shots. This fall will mark the fifth year anniversary of Phi Delta Theta’s suspension from Drake University. It will also mark Phi Delta Theta’s return to campus. “I think they needed to have some type of wake up call. Not just to (Phi Delta Theta) but to the Greek community as a whole,” Erickson said. The four-year suspension from the Greek community was as much a punishment as it was a purging of sorts. “When it happened, I had a
lot of backlash from individual people trying to make my life as hard as they possibly could the last two years they were still in school,” Erickson said. A calculated absence intended by both Drake and Phi Delta Theta officials operating under protocol, the suspension ensured that all then-Phi Delta members would be graduated by the time rechartering commenced. As the opportunity to recharter approaches, Iowa Delta Housing President Tim Coonan set out to determine from fellow Phi Delta alumni if an attempted return to the university it had been a part of since the mid 1960’s would even be worthwhile. “It was automatic. It was clear to me there was a mandate,” he said. But a mandate from peers is no guarantee of realization. An entire Greek community and its governing bodies, in addition to University officials, must accept that mandate as well. A common sentiment amongst student and administration leaders alike is the desire for a Phi Delta Theta chapter with new principles and
aspirations, not a continuation of past. Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Kerry Jordan is confident that a return to campus will be an opportunity for Phi Delta to establish a chapter of

capable, responsible leaders while learning from the past. “A horrible incident occurred a little over four years ago. Nobody can change that. (Phi Delta) are going to do their best to recruit men of integrity who will not bring that Phi Delta back to campus,” Jordan said. Even having secured the blessings of Dean of Students Sentwali Bakari, who has extended an offer of “as much
support as possible to help (Phi Delta) achieve their goals,” a long journey lies ahead of Phi Delta Theta. In order to receive recognition from Drake and the studentgoverning Interfraternity Council (IFC), Phi Delta will have to go through successful rounds of recruitment to become a colony, a de facto Greek organization awaiting official recognition. Drake’s current colony is Alpha Tau Omega, which will enter its third semester under the designation. IFC President T.J. Lindgren anticipates Alpha Tau Omega will receive recognition as a fraternity soon, meaning Phi Delta will realistically aim for an official recognition by Drake and the IFC in Fall of 2015. “It shouldn’t be an instantaneous process. They’re not all of a sudden going to show up in October and have 20 guys who are active members,” Lindgren said. “They’ll have a pretty long, drawn-out process.” This will not dissuade the national organization from sending representatives to begin
the recruitment process, however. Erickson is now 24 years old and working for a local chapter of a national environmental group. Part of his job has him traveling to campuses to share its mission with students. “Everybody makes mistakes,” Erickson said. “We all made mistakes that night. It doesn’t mean we’re bad people. It doesn’t mean somebody should have their life ruined or an organization that is otherwise a very standup group of people shouldn’t be allowed to function.” Tim Coonan graduated as a Drake Phi Delta Theta alum in 1996, 13 years before Erickson was hospitalized with a blood alcohol level of more than six times the legal limit. “We get a chance to come back fresh. We get to define the terms by which we are made, rather than inherit 50 years of stories,” Coonan said. Aware of the past, he looks toward the future. “It’s an exciting prospect to be able to do this right the first time,” he said. “And I’m confident we will do it.”
Des Moines Farmers Market offers variety of tasty treats Molly Longman
Staff Writer email@example.com
The Des Moines Farmers Market takes place every Saturday morning from 7 a.m. to noon, rain or shine, in the historic Court Avenue District in downtown Des Moines until October 25. The Des Moines Farmers Market is one of the best in the nation. It was recognized by Midwest Living Magazine as “One of America’s Best Farmers Markets” in 2012, was featured on RachelRay.com and listed as the “Best in the Midwest” by Country Living Magazine. It hosts over 300 booths over the course of the five months it’s open, supporting family farmers, bakers, artists and crafters from around the state. Due to the affordability of the items sold at the booths and the free parking, the Farmers Market is a hot spot for Drake students on Saturday Mornings. Emeila Fabel, sophomore accounting and finance major, said “The Farmers Market is a great way to get off campus and get some fresh air on a Saturday morning. It’s really affordable and fun.” Next time you visit The Farmers Market, check out these local favorites: Best Cup of Coffee : Iowa Coffee Company Court Avenue, between 4th and 5th Streets The Iowa Coffee Company is at the market every Saturday. The Company was founded in 1991 by Tom Sibbernsen, whose vision was to create a company that would provide the freshest coffee experience in Iowa paired with his
own brand of friendly, personal service. “Ten Horses is one of my signature blend coffees, and it’s a crowd favorite here at the market,” Sibbernsen said. Roxie Menke, a frequent Farmers’ Market attendee added, “He roasts about the best coffee beans I’ve ever had.” Best Breakfast Sandwich : Rinehart’s Family Farm Court Avenue, between 4th and 5th Street The Rinehart’s Family Farm vendors travel from Boone, Iowa every Saturday to attend the market. Their merchandise includes home grown produce, honey and prepared chemical-free food. “The breakfast sandwiches are top notch, and we usually have a line down the street. People really like tomato or zucchini sandwiches,” Rinehart’s employee James Arentson said. Sophomore Mark Kelly likes to enjoy a Rhinehart’s breakfast sandwich on early Saturday mornings. “The breakfast sandwiches are my favorite thing about the whole market,” he said. “They’re always fresh, and better than Hubbell.” Best Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice : The Rotary Club of West Des Moines Court Avenue, between 3rd and 4th street The Rotary Club of West Des Moines has a booth sponsored by Johnny’s Hall of Fame, and is known for their freshly squeezed orange juice, which they sell to accompany their breakfast pizza. The money raised every Saturday helps various
philanthropic endeavors. The Rotary Club provides dictionaries for a third grade class in the West Des Moines School District, assists with road side clean up and organizes a bike drive for Des Moines youth. Best Sweet Treats : Grandma’s Fudge Location varies Grandma’s Fudge is a booth that features baked goods, specifically homemade fudge, Dutch letter bars, and peanut brittle. Pat Wite runs the stand, which can be found at many other area markets including the Johnston Farmers’ Market, the Polk City Farmers’ Market, the Four Mile Farmers’ Market, Ankeny Unplugged and other craft fairs. “Grandma’s Fudge is my favorite thing at the Market. I got it with my mom one weekend when she came to visit and now I’m hooked,” Fabel said.

Quax yearbook offers glimpse into history Student Alumni Association publishes yearbook alternative
Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
Yearbooks allow students to look back at their favorite memories from school, whether it be high school or college. It provides a tool to help jog the memory or show younger generations what the good old days were like. According to Drakepedia, a website similar to Wikipedia but centered around Drake University, students have lacked this tool since 1994. Drakepedia claims that Drake’s yearbook, the Quax, was discontinued due to lack of interest. No one applied as
the editor-in-chief in 1996. In November of that year, The TimesDelphic announced that the Quax was no longer in print. This did not come as a surprise to Drake students. According to Drakepedia, the Quax had not been published in the past two years due to finances. Without a yearbook, how are people going to look at the past? That’s where the Internet comes in hand. Cowles Library has set up a program where anyone can look up a Quax from the past on an online database and find anything they need. Bart Schmidt, Drake’s Digital Projects Librarian, said that, “It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good if you’re trying to find a specific thing. “It’s probably more of an
Summer is a season looked forward to by most. Students are out of school, teachers have a break from their students and parents have a more easygoing schedule. Summer is full of late nights, bonfires and vacations abroad or weekend road trips. Whatever it may be, memories made in the summer stick with us for a lifetime. Here are some favorite memories Drake University students shared about their time off from school.

board if the opportunity to start the yearbook up again presented itself. Senior Annelise Tarnowski, who is president of the Student Alumni Association, is helping to bring this idea to life. It’s not an entire yearbook, it’s called the Bulldog Book. “New this year, we’re printing out a whole new Bulldog Book that comes out for seniors only. It’s kind of a look back on your four years at Drake. It’s just saying ‘do you remember these things,’ ‘make sure you try out these things if you haven’t done them already yet,’” Tarnowski said. Tarnowski said that in years past the Student Alumni Association had tried giving the Bulldog Book out to first-years as a way to showcase all the different

“My favorite summer memory would definitely have to be my trip to Ireland. In July, I went abroad for the International Student Leadership Conference for Operation Smile. Operation Smile works to fix cleft lips and palates on children in Third World countries, throughout high school. It was really cool to reunite with a lot of my friends from my last medical mission in Nicaragua, listen to keynote speakers and, of course, travel to many tourist attractions. When I went to Nicaragua in February of my senior year, we educated the locals, families and even those in orphanages on how to stay healthy. Operation Smile is mostly a high school student organization, but I really want to start a group right here on campus.”

“My favorite summer memory was camping at Lake of the Ozarks with my friends. We stayed for four nights, and it was great because there was so much freedom to do whatever we wanted. We did a lot of wake boarding and jet skiing. It was really great to have a group outing with my close friends from high school before we all went off to college in different places.”
traditions they could participate in at Drake. However, the students ended up throwing them away. Tarnowski sees the negatives of not having a physical yearbook though. “Students might not be aware of parts of campus that they’re not apart of. So something a yearbook can do is show you people who are a part of clubs that you never even knew existed,” Tarnowski said. Now students, faculty and alumni have two options: look online for the past, or look into the Bulldog Book for the future. Either way, a piece of Drake can be found, and they both bring the past into view. To visit the Quax database online, go to ww.lib.drake.edu/ heritage.
Senior | Radio and TV Production “I held an intern position with Better Homes and Gardens this past summer. I worked in social media and sat on Twitter and Pinterest all day, but it was really awesome. My internship led to having a position in social media with HOBY (Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership), a program that teaches youth to become great leaders in their home, school and workplace. I worked a lot on promoting their programs and live tweeting during youth leadership events.”
Senior | Public Relations “My family owns a cabin in northern Wisconsin, so we went there for a week this past summer. My cousins and aunts and uncles were all staying there (at) the same time so we got to spend a lot of time together. We spent most of our time out on the lake, wakeboarding, jet skiing and waterskiing. Since I’m starting my senior year, it was really nice to have a close family vacation where we could all be together in one place before we go our separate ways.”
“Over the summer, the sororities and fraternities came back for a long weekend in mid-July. It was one huge Greek reunion and I loved it. We went out to a lot of dinners, hung out in all of the different houses, and caught up with each other. I never thought that I would be in a sorority. I played soccer, basketball and ran track throughout high school, so I thought life would be pretty similar in college, but joining a sorority was the best thing I ever did. I have met some of my best friends through Greek Life It was a ton of fun seeing my roomies, my Elizabeth Peterson sisters from Kappa Kappa Gamma and everyone else from the other chapters. We are really Sophomore | Health Science one huge community.”
Junior | Pharmacy “I stayed in Des Moines for the summer in my fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon. One night, my friend Kyle and I decided to invite three random guys from our house out to dinner with us. We went to a Mexican restaurant called El Aguila. It was so random and we had never really hung out with these guys before, but we learned a lot about them. People really open up when you open your ears and listen. They also open up about some weird things, but overall, we got to know them much better.”

Drake splits weekend games Athletes seeking more support this year

Sports Editor email@example.com
The Drake women’s soccer team opened their 2014 home campaign with two games this weekend at Cownie Soccer Complex, splitting games with Saint Louis (Friday) and Fresno State (Sunday). On Friday, the women played to a 2-1 loss after Saint Louis rallied late. Head coach Lindsey Horner said possession issues plagued the Bulldogs down the stretch. “After Friday’s game we addressed using possession of the ball to our favor especially when we have the lead,” Horner said. Senior Ashlie Stokes gave Drake a first half lead after netting her second goal of the season in the 37th minute. However, the Bilikins answered in the 59th minute with a goal from Kirsten Clemens, her third of the season. The game-winner came on a set piece from the corner in the 68th minute of the match. Tori Marshall struck the corner kick, beating
Drake goalkeeper Kylynn Moyer. The Bulldogs were outshot 26-6. Stokes led Drake with three shots. Despite the loss, Moyer turned in a career match, collecting 11 saves, a new high for the sophomore goalkeeper. The women returned to the pitch on Sunday to host Fresno State, this time producing a 2-1 victory at Cownie Soccer Complex. An 86th minute goal from senior Generve Charles broke a 1-1 tie and ultimately gave Drake (2-2) its second win of the season. Drake took an early lead when Rebecca Rodgers buried a shot from about 30 yards out, just over three minutes into the match. The lead stood until Jaycee Bingham delivered the equalizer for Fresno State in the 64th minute. A Drake turnover deep in their defensive end led to Bingham beating Moyer to pull even. Horner said Fresno was bound to attack Drake’s defense directly to force a tie in the second half. “We knew at half Fresno would eventually go more direct, but we
had to be able to clean up long balls and connect out,” Horner said. “They caught us for the equalizer … It doesn’t suit our personnel to get caught playing direct as well.” Charles’ game-winning goal came off a rebound after Stokes’ shot deflected off a Fresno State defender to Charles. She headed the ball into the back of the net, putting Drake ahead in the final minutes. Drake outshot Fresno State 1613 in the match. Charles led all players with five shots. Horner said after the game that getting a win at home was huge going into a five-game stretch away from home. “We needed that win at home today before heading into a long road swing, but more importantly, we needed to prove we could be dangerous in the final third by creating more chances,” Horner said. “We also needed success from possessing and switching the point of attack, each of which we did today.”
Milwaukee shuts out Bulldogs 2-0 Sunday Colton Warren
Sports Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Two second half goals proved too much to overcome for the Drake men’s soccer team in its 2-0 loss to Milwaukee Sunday night at the Cownie Soccer Complex. Milwaukee (2-0) struck early in the second half (46:28) on a set piece from the corner. Reid Stevenson headed a lofted cross from Magnus Flaatedal past redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Darrin MacLeod. This proved to be the game winner for a Milwaukee team that dominated the Bulldogs (0-1-1) in
the defensive end throughout the second half. “I am disappointed because I thought we were so good and on top of the game in the first half,” said head coach Sean Holmes in a Drake athletics press release. “So to come out and give such a soft goal two minutes or so into the second half on a corner kick on a lack of communication and organization in the back is disheartening.” “After that point, we started to chase the game,” Holmes said. Milwaukee scored again at the 60:51 mark on a shot from Petter Ingebrigsten from just inside the right side of the box that got past
It’s that time of year again, school is back in session which means our team practices are starting up as well. It’s a little strange coming back to the Drake women’s crew team and being an upperclassman now. Gone are the days of being a novice or a bumbling sophomore, I’m now looked to as someone who has an idea of what’s going on. Before school started, Drake athletics hosted a welcome back picnic for all the studentathletes. It’s a time for us to be reacquainted with each other and to hear about the theme for this year and re-affirm our commitment to the Bulldog Way. The theme for this year was “All In,” and that really resonated with me. Sandy Hatfield Clubb, the Athletic Director, challenged us all to support one another and realize the teams that win championships are the ones with members who are fully committed to one another and realize that it takes more than one superstar to win a game. That directly applies to our team because for us to win races, we have to be perfectly in sync with the girl in front of us. We have to rely on one another to meet the speed and rate changes and pull together in order to win. The theme of “All In” was our team’s motto for last year, and with so many empty spots left behind from seniors who graduated, it is as applicable now more than ever. Once Hatfield Clubb finished her speech, all of the athletes circled
around the Drake Bulldog logo in the center of the Knapp Court and pledged their commitment to the Bulldog Way. However, when women’s basketball player Kyndal Clark stepped up to speak, she issued another challenge to us. She directly challenged us to support each other at sporting events and to become more actively involved in our community. I really took that to heart, and it’s something that our team will be working on. Everyone needs a support system. Having family, friends and fans cheering you on really makes a difference. This is my challenge to all of the students: Come out and support your teams. It’s going to be an exciting year for Drake Athletics and if we are all “All In,” the sky is the limit.

Drake goes 3-0, captures Omaha Classic title
MacLeod’s outstretched arms. Drake saw many chances go just wide in a game that was tied at half. Redshirt sophomore James Grunert came off the bench and nearly scored minutes later on a shot that sailed just over the left side of the crossbar. Grunert led Drake with three shots in the match. “There were so many positives tonight, just the final ball was lacking,” Holmes said. “To be at home and not to score a goal when we’ve created enough chances is a little bit, I don’t want to say upsetting, but certainly a little bit unnerving. I think we are capable of more.”
