State Regents budget breaks one billion New request is intended to increase number of degree completions in Okla. MOLLY EVANS
Assistant Campus Editor
Oklahoma higher education officials are asking for a $76.3 million increase in next year’s budget to boost the number of college degree completions in Oklahoma’s 25 state colleges and universities. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education announced the budget request for $1,064,849,007 Thursday at a regular meeting in Oklahoma City, which is an almost an 8 percent increase from fiscal year 2014. The requested amount for fiscal year 2015 is up from last
year and is the highest it’s been since fiscal year 2008 before the recession, which totaled $1,050.9 billion, according to the budget plan. The requested appropriations will primarily support the Complete College America Oklahoma Plan that Governor Mary Fallin hopes will yield 50,900 college graduates by 2023, according to the regents meeting agenda. The $55.1 million of the budget request set aside for this will fund an additional 436 course sections, 339 online courses and 144 full-time faculty members, according to the budget plan. Also $5.9 million of that appropriation will go to tuition scholarships, according to the budget plan. Secondly, the proposal for fiscal year 2015’s budget will fund $2.5 million to online course technology to increase
degree completions, particularly by those who have a discontinuous college career, like adults who return after several years, said higher education system chancellor Glen Johnson. Smaller appropriations will support student services, like advisement and veteran services as well as concurrent enrollment for high school students, Johnson said. Johnson said there is a direct correlation between college degree attainment and the state’s economic well-being. After the fiscal year 2015 budget was reviewed, three presidents from Oklahoma’s higher education institutions including Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis, Eastern Oklahoma State College President Stephen SEE MONEY PAGE 2

All OU colleges will be conducting open forum meetings to discuss program fee changes with students up until mid-November. At the meetings, the colleges will review how the revenue from their fees were used in the previous year and if the college is proposing any increasing fees for the next year, said Nancy Mergler, OU’s senior vice president and provost. “I require colleges to hold the meetings because I want students within each college to have the opportunity to review revenue fee usage and to have input when college fee increases are being proposed,” Mergler said.

When I was a freshman, I applied to work at The Daily as a reporter. I was hired and assigned to the administration beat, covering things like policy changes and talking to administrators like Provost Nancy Mergler and President David Boren. You could say my first semester at OU was eventful — it gave me an immense perspective on how OU works. I took a semester off and returned fall of my sophomore year as a designer. That semester, I was responsible for planning out the design of the paper for the week. It gave me a holistic knowledge of how to tell a story: It’s not just limited to words and photos. The very design of a page can tell a story, and that’s what I love about design. Now I’m the managing editor, so I primarily manage the newsroom and our website. Working at The Daily has given me skills I otherwise wouldn’t have if I would have kept working in retail or food service. It has allowed me to network with administrators, professors and people who will be in the industry with me when we graduate. Plus, I have met some of my best friends from college working here. It’s hard, but I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world.

yle Margerum editor in chief
When I first started working at The Daily my sophomore year, I was a copy editor, and I didn’t know anything. It’s true. I didn’t think I would ever know as much as the other editors. Fast forward four years later; I’m now the person everyone turns to for copy editing knowledge. My knowledge about editing in general as grown exponentially while working for The Daily, something I hope to continue doing in the professional world. That’s really what The Daily serves as: It’s a way of kick starting the knowledge you can take into a real job.
ulia Nelson sports editor
I’ve been obsessed with sports since I was a little girl. You know Hayden Panettierre’s character in Remember the Titans? That was me. I work at the Daily because it gives me the opportunity and outlet to do what I love — analyze sports. I grew up watching OU football, and now I get to cover it. I don’t want to be a sideline reporter for ESPN; I want to be a columnist. I want to be able to give my opinion about what I’m seeing on the field. The Daily lets me do that, and it helps me learn from my own mistakes. I get to talk to players about what they saw on the field, or what was going through their head on a specific play. At the end of the day, things are pretty simple. I’m getting paid to watch and talk about sports.
egan Deaton life & arts editor
aylor Bolton print editor
I’ll be honest with you; I came to The Daily in search of a paycheck. Journalism isn’t even my major. I just wanted a job where I could put my time in and get paid for it. But that was almost a year ago and I’m still here. I’m still here because The Daily’s given me a chance to improve my design skills. I’ve learned so much about how a newsroom works and how much effort it takes to get a paper on the racks five days a week. It’s given me great friends and a enjoyable, worthwhile job that I really enjoy doing day in and day out.
The reason I enjoy working at The Oklahoma Daily is not only for the wonderful people I work with and get to meet around campus, but also for the experience I receive. When I graduate I plan to work for a magazine or newspaper, hopefully National Geographic, but being here pushes me more and more into being a better photojournalist. This is my third semester at The Daily. I started as a photojournalist Fall 2012 and quickly fell in love with it. In Spring 2013 I became the assistant visual editor and now I work as the visual editor. I have never worked anywhere that has pushed me to my limits and over to achieve the best that I can be. I hope to be here for the next two semesters until I graduate.
armen Forman special projects editor
The Daily is a great place to get experience for my future career while I’m still in college. I have a chance to learn skills that will help me in my journalism classes, but more importantly, give me skills that will put my resume above and beyond those of some of my classmates when I graduate. I have worked for every semester of college because bringing in money to pay for my expenses isn’t an option. Getting paid to work at The Daily allows me to get paid for doing what I’m passionate about while also learning real-world journalism skills.
Stacks of newspapers are tucked away in my closet and hidden under my bed. They are evidence of the long hours I have spent writing, editing and designing during my time at OU. They are tangible pieces of an experience that has colored my life in a way that will forever affect me. I started as a news reporter, and I have gradually worked my way up to editor status. Now as a senior, I can look back and see how my time at The Daily has given me the tools I need to be a successful journalist. It is a forgiving learning environment, but it is also a real news organization, with the potential to provide skills for my future career. My friends here are my family, and I’m proud of my work. You can do as much or as little as you want, but whatever you do, you are making a choice to better your future.

I’ve worked at several places in the past and I’ve made the most out of each one of them. But at this point in my life, I can confidently say I know the difference between a job and a passion. Among the various jobs I’ve had, the coffee shop thing was fun while it lasted and working in retail had its perks. But these jobs aren’t things I had a passion doing — I was working for the paycheck more so than the experience. Working here at The Daily, however, has cemented my desire to write and pursue journalism. When I first started working here my sophomore year, I was a Life & Arts reporter. I wrote some of my very first features and briefs, and getting my written work published felt so rewarding. As much as I loved it though, I discovered I love opinion more. The power to spark a conversation and introduce alternative perspectives on topics that matter is so gratifying. Writing editorials, columns, and learning how to edit and design has consumed a lot of my free time, but the experience is priceless and working with awesome people makes my job worth it in the end.
aighten Harkins assistant campus editor
When I was a freshman, I didn’t really know where I would find myself in OU’s large campus community. I hopped around a few student organizations, but couldn’t find my niche. During that time, though, I was also working at The Daily. Whereas those other groups fell away, I ended up sticking with The Daily and in doing so, found my home on campus. Copeland Hall, room 160 has become a spot on campus where I feel comfortable and where I’m surrounded by some of the greatest people I’ve ever met, who all share my passion for journalism and writing. Essentially, I found a group of people on campus who make my time at OU everything I ever wanted out of my college experience. I’m sure you could find those types of people here too.

Two teams of OU law students took second and seventh place at the National Health Law Moot Court competition held Nov. 1 and 2 at Southern Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale, Ill. The competing teams were pairs that each received the same problem with two issues â€” each partner works on one issue, said Elise Puma, an OU law graduate student and vice president of marketing for the Student Bar Association. The teams each submitted a 30-page brief in September and then appealed for 15 minutes before a mock Supreme Court, Puma said. Puma and her fellow graduate student, Elizabeth Isaacs, took second place to their competitors from Seton Hall University of New Jersey, she said.

India Student Association to host annual festival ANDREW CLARK
Life & Arts Reporter
A festival of lights is coming to campus with the India Student Association’s Diwali Night. The first of the five days of the OU Diwali Festival will begin 7 p.m. Saturday at the Reynolds Performing Arts Center. Performers in the festival at a rehearsal Wednesday night said Diwali means “row of lamps,” and it involves the lighting of small clay lamps filled with oil to signify the victory of good over evil as well as dancing, singing and a skit portraying Ramayana, a Hindu epic. It also primarily celebrates Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth. Sami Adhikan, one of the dancers performing the opening Diya Dance at the Diwali Festival, summarized Diwali for those who may be unfamiliar with the festival. “It’s basically a mix of the Fourth of July, Christmas and Halloween,” Adhikan said. “The trick or treat part is a little different though. We go dancing and singing at people’s houses, and they give us money instead of

OU hosted Sooner Idol, a variety of OU pageants and Dancing with the Stars. So, why not a Sooner’s Got Talent? S o o n e r ’s G o t Ta l e n t , which will be held 7 p.m. Friday in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Meacham Auditor ium, is another free event organized by the Union Programming Board. Jamie Miller, broadcast and electronic media sophomore and UPB film series director, said though the other events catered to a specific skill set, Sooner’s Got Talent will allow a wide variety of skills. Dalaney Flies, interior design junior and coordinator for the event, said they tend to observe activities ongoing in schools across America and seek inspiration from them. Not long ago, University of Kansas had a KU’s Got Talent, and thus, Sooner’s Got Talent was born. A lot of people on the board are fans of America’s Got Talent, so it worked out perfectly, Miller said. The show is going to be similar in structure to the actual TV series with judges who decide on a winner, plus other awards such as a crowd favorite. Miller said this allows more audience involvement. However, unlike the show, the contestants only get five minutes of fame to showcase

their talent, Flies said. After that, it’s all up to the judges. None of the judges will be UPB members. Flies said Union faculty members will be the arbiters for the event mainly because they will be more adept at making unbiased decisions and giving helpful criticism. Interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Kelly Damphouse, assistant director of Student Life Brandon Oldham and Miss OU 2014 Brooke Hamilton will be the judges. Flies said Damphouse and Oldham are great with students and should be able to give sound advice. This is Hamilton’s first debut after the pageant, and the UPB felt it would be fitting to have her as a judge as well. There is definitely variety in talent, Miller said. Not only are there musicians, poets and dancers, but also an act involving glow sticking. Curiosity about that act

The Collegium Musicum will bring pieces of the Renaissance to campus with its “Festino” performance 8 p.m. Sunday in Catlett Music Center’s Gothic Hall. Collegium Musicum is a group on campus that performs early music pieces from the Renaissance, the Baroque period and so on. The concert is held every semester and mostly consists of graduate students taking it as a credit-bearing course. Eugene Enrico, professor of music and director of the Collegium Musicum, said the purpose of these concerts is to enrich cultural life on campus. It also gives students the opportunity to play and be exposed to music they would otherwise never hear, he said. In the upcoming concert, there will not only be music, but also a performance

by dancers from the Oklahoma Festival Ballet, Enrico said. Tickets are $5 for students and $9 for adults. To purchase tickets, contact the Fine Arts Box Office at 405-325-4101. Sama Khawaja, Life & Arts Reporter
CONCERT alone is enough of an incentive to attend the event, she said. Flies said the event seems to appeal to freshman, since quite a few auditioned for the show, but that’s not to say that the upperclassmen weren’t as enthusiastic. Altogether, there are approximately nine acts planned for the night, mostly in groups of twos and threes. Like all of their events, the UPB looks to continue Sooner’s Got Talent, depending on the outcome. Miller said people should definitely consider attending since it’s something new that the UPB hasn’t done before. “You’re not going to be able to expect what’s going to happen,” she said.

TRAVIS TAYLOR/BAYLOR LARIAT
oming into last night’s game, Baylor had been largely untested this season. As of now, they still haven’t been tested. While the game was close early, the Bears prevailed and moved onto an 8-0 record for the first time in school history. Their 41-12 win over the Sooners poked a few more holes in this Oklahoma team. Here’s what we learned about the football team this week.
Junior quarterback Blake Bell tries to make a first down against Baylor Thursday night. Bell, along with the rest of the offense, looked fairly ineffective in the Sooners’ 41-12 loss to the Bears.
WHERE IS THE OFFENSE? Oklahoma could not string together anything productive on offense all game. Most of its scores came hand-wrapped as presents from the Baylor defense. In its first game without Trey Millard, the Oklahoma offense looked flat and weak. It was clear that he was missed up front — the offensive line could not get its blocks, and plays were slow developing. In addition, the play calling was suspect. The run game did not develop, and quarterback Blake Bell did not start taking shots downfield until late in the second half. He finished with 15 completions on 35 attempts for 150 yards. His efforts were weak and he often overthrew receivers. The run game was just as pitiful. Even using six ball-carries, OU couldn’t muster 100 rushing yards.
DEFENSIVE MASTERMINDS We all knew Baylor could play defense this season. However, Oklahoma’s defense has had its highs and lows. Thursday night, the Sooner defense came to play and kept OU in the game for as long as it could. It received little to no help from the offense and quickly tired out, though. If the offense could have strung a few drives together, its very possible that this game could have turned out very differently. The defense held Baylor to only three points in the first quarter and limited them to under 100 yards. It just proved impossible to hold an offense that explosive for so long. They finished with 463 total yards.
DOUBLE TROUBLE It was only a matter of time. Since Bell replaced Trevor Knight as starting quarterback, it was only logical to make a short yardage package with Knight running the read-option. The only problem? It didn’t work and barely saw any light after the first quarter. Knight finished the game with 17 yards on five carries. Co-offensive coordinator also called for a reverse on the Sooners first play, which was also ineffective. Heupel came to Waco, Texas was some tricks up his sleeve, but it just didn’t work.
