DAMPHOUSSE Kelly Damphousse is the new College of Arts and Sciences dean. Damphousse said after 10 years of working in the dean’s office, he was relieved to hear of his appointment. As permanent dean, Damphousse said he will feel more comfortable to make more impactful decisions than he did as while serving as interim. “I was trying to be respectful to the process and to the next dean, and I’m glad I’m that person,” Damphousse said. One of Damphousse’s main goals is to make study abroad opportunities more affordable for students. Damphousse said the college is looking for scholarship donors to help with the costs of educational summer trips. As dean, Damphousse said he wants to connect with alumni and give faculty more resources for their research. Though he is happy to advance the college as dean, Damphousse said the college is already flourishing because of his predecessor, Paul Bell, who served as dean for 16 years. “He planted a great tree, it’s really healthy, and my job is not just to keep it alive but to grow it, prune it, make it as strong and big a tree we can,” Damphousse said.

Daniel Pullin is the new Price College of Business dean. Pullin said when he discovered he would serve as the business college’s next dean, he was honored to know he was supported by the college and the Board of Regents. It was especially humbling to know he was chosen as dean after a selective appointment process with many across the country candidates, Pullin said. As permanent dean, Pullin said he will continue the success the business already school enjoys. “Given the dynamic changes in higher education today, the only thing riskier than moving too quickly forward is to do nothing,” Pullin said. Pullin also plans to be accessible to students, faculty and staff. Jayme Hunt, international business and finance junior, said when Pullin says he wants to be approachable, he means it. Hunt met with Pullin several times while enrolling in the business school, and she appreciates how he connects with students. When she heard the college was appointing a new dean earlier this year, Hunt knew that Pullin would be a great candidate because of his accessibility, she said.

Students will be paying more money to live in the residence halls and have a meal plan, but in exchange they can do laundry for free. The OU Board of Regents approved Thursday a 4-percent rate increase for all campus residence halls and food services, which would include a $30 laundry charge that would gives residents unlimited access to laundry facilities. The rate increase would cost students living in the residence halls an extra $127 for double occupancy rooms with a standard meal plan, according to the Regents agenda. For a single occupancy room, students would be paying $151 more per semester, according to the Regents agenda. Meal plans would cost $79 more per semester. The rate increase was necessary for the campus to maintain the same quality of service to OU students, said Amy Buchanan, Housing

The OU Board of Regents voted Thursday to approve $10 million in total renovations to both Kaufman and Gittinger Halls. OU President David Boren said the buildings were hastily constructed during the 1950s, and have remained essentially untouched for nearly 65 years and are in need of renovations. “Kaufman and Gittinger are two of our most dilapidated buildings,” Boren said. The board’s approval will give $5 million toward improving each building, Boren said. Kaufman Hall currently houses the Department of Modern Languages, and Gittinger Hall holds the English Department.

OU is setting aside $12 million to build storm shelters and renovate certain buildings to improve tornado safety on campus. The university is still considering where the storm shelters will be located and whether they should be built above- or belowground, but the budget to cover the costs was approved at the OU Board of Regents meeting

The money for this project comes from allocate d funds provide d under Article 13 of the Oklahoma Constitution, so setting it aside for tornado safety construction won’t affect the current operating budget, Boren said.

Aviation junior Austin Freeman said he thinks building shelters on campus is a good idea for students who don’t have access to shelters otherwise. “A lot of us don’t have shelters because we live in apartments or the dorms … I don’t know where I would go,” he said.

$1.5 million awarded to Cancer Center Grant received by OU expected to go to Peggy and Charles Stephenson Cancer Center Caitlin Schachter Campus Reporter

OU received a $1 million grant from the Sarkeys Foundation and another $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, both to be used for health care. OU President David Boren announced Thursday during the OU Board of Regents meeting that the grant from the Sarkeys Foundation will be used for programs at the Peggy and Charles Stephenson Cancer Center. From the Sarkeys Foundation grant, $500,000 will be used to recruit 20 scientists who will bring research programs to the cancer center. The other $500,000 will go toward resources for the cancer center’s Patient and Family Services Program which offers patients and families a range of supportive care services, according to a press release. Boren said he will suggest to the Regents that a floor in the Stephenson Cancer Center be named for the Sarkeys Foundation in recognition of the grant, according to the press release. The $500,000 grant will go to the OU Health Sciences Center and the Oklahoma Aging Initiative for advanced health care for seniors, according to a press release. The grant, called the Rural Utilities Service Distance Learning and Telemedicine grant, will go to the Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine at the Health Sciences Center for telemedicine and distance learning equipment needed to deliver clinical geriatric services and health training to rural areas of Oklahoma, according to the press release.

Food Assistant director. “[We needed] to address increased fixed costs while continuing to make needed improvements to our facilities and maintaining high-quality services,” Buchanan said. Despite the increased costs, Buchanan said that OU has consistently been among the lowest three in terms of Housing and Food Services’ costs. The rate increase will not affect OU’s ranking significantly, and even with the increase they are eighth out of the 10 Big 12 universities in terms of residence hall housing rates. For a double dormitory in one of the residence towers, the price is increased by $95. The mandatory $30 laundry charge will be used to buy new washers and dryers, as well as fund improvements to the residence halls’ laundry facilities, Buchanan said. Currently, the laundry facilities in the

residence halls require Sooner Sense payments for each load at $1.50 for washers and $1.25 for dryers. Housing and Food services generates over $80,000 per semester through laundry services, Buchanan said. For some students, the current Sooner Sense system for laundry led them to find cheaper laundry facilities elsewhere. “I think this [current] system is OK, because I avoid it,” biology junior Daniel Pons said. “I like that you can add more Sooner Sense, but I just do my laundry at a friend’s house.” However, some students think that the cost of free laundry outweighs the benefits. “I only spent like $35 on laundry last semester,” University College freshman Alex Owens said. “I like using Sooner Sense better than using actual money. And it costs a lot to live here already.” Mike Brestovansky, mcbrestov@gmail.com

Medieval mouths similar to ours Cleaner teeth don’t mean fewer germs Caitlin Schachter Campus Reporter

People living in the Medieval period didn’t eat processed foods or have toothbrushes, but their mouths — more specifically their dental plaque — did have similar disease-causing bacteria as people do today. O U re s e a rc h e r s hav e found that Germans during the Medieval period have similar inflammatory disease-causing bacteria in their calculus extracts as modern-day humans, despite advanced hygiene practices. Christina Warinner, research associate in the Molecular Anthropologies Laboratories in the OU

College of Arts and Sciences, and a team of international experts found 2,000 different kinds of bacteria that cause Periodontitis, which makes teeth recede, in specimens preserved for around 1,000 years. The calculus extracts the researchers looked at contained bits of food and repository bacteria, and from there, Warriner and her team were able to conclude it’s similar to the kind in people’s mouths today. Warinner and her team looked at the Medieval period for their research because she knew what those people were eating, she said. “We knew what those people back then had been eating and wanted to choose a population with no rapid change to interpret,” Warinner said. When researchers look

at dental calculus, they can learn about health and disease and also reconstruct different aspects of someone’s life history and activities, Warinner said. “What makes studying dental calculus different is that you can find out information about that person’s body that is reliable,” Warinner said. Warinner said that the plaque acts as a long-term reservoir for the oral microbiome, or the sum total of all the bacteria, and acts as a trap for dietary and environmental debris. “Never before have we been able to retrieve so much information from one small sample,” Warriner said.

Allyson McNitt, medieval studies graduate student, said cosmetic improvements to Gittinger Hall’s chipped, run-down hallways would be nice, but her priority would be

to replace the slow elevator. “[The elevator] did break down several times last semester, which caused problems for handicapped students,” McNitt said. The plans for these renovations are still in the architectural phase, university spokesperson Michael Nash said. Mirroring each other’s floor layout, the original plans for the two buildings called for an auditorium to connect both halls in the middle. However, the original plan was scrapped because of the high demand for additional classrooms with a huge influx of students

There is a distinction between freedom of speech and the obligation to appropriately represent your organization. Politicians, celebrities and athletes can, of course, post whatever they want on social media sites. However, if they say something offensive, crude or misrepresentative of their personal brand, they will have to deal with the repercussions. We believe it is appropriate for universities, including our own, to monitor what student-athletes post on social media. Universities should be able to reprimand student-athletes if they post content that is inappropriate or represents their school The Editorial is the majority poorly. The agreement to be a opinion of student-athlete and receive a The Daily’s scholarship in return for athletic eight-member editorial board ability constitutes the student’s consent to represent that university throughout their academic and athletic career. We feel you have a right to say whatever you want, but you don’t have a right to play football or any other collegiate sport. As such, universities are absolutely justified in policing what their athletes say while representing the school. Students chosen to represent their university, not only in the classroom but also on the playing field, have both the honor and the obligation to hold themselves to a higher standard and portray their school accurately. In fact, many Division I schools across the country have social media policies for their student-athletes, according to an article from the Student Press Law Association. As journalism advocates and editors of a student newspaper, we understand the vital importance of freedom of speech. However, it is simply a fact that

you have to carefully consider your words when you are representing a group or organization. As anyone who has held a leadership position knows, you can’t make disparaging remarks about your organization or colleagues on social media without facing some consequences. And that’s who student-athletes are; they are leaders in their university’ communities and the chosen standard-bearers for their school. While it may seem unfair that student-athletes can be reprimanded for what they say on Twitter or Facebook, it comes with the territory when you agree to represent a university. OU keeps track of student-athletes’ posts, just as other Big XII universities and colleges across the U.S. do. Our athletes can post anything they like to social media. However, the Athletics Compliance

Stereotypes harm everyone SGA ideas need student support Assistant Opinion Editor straight person looks like,

While stereotypes can be both negative and positive, positivity is hard to come by when considering gender stereotypes. Take the pressure placed on women to remain abstinent until marriage. You’ve probably known someone who wore a purity ring or at least heard of the concept. But have you ever stopped to think about who wears them? It’s probably mostly women. But why is that? Men are just as capable of having pre-marital sex as women, so shouldn’t they be just as big proponents of donning a purity ring as women? Society places the burden (or commitment) of abstinence mostly on women. Why? Because women are the sexy temptresses — not men! Men are supposed to be tough and strong, so they can fight those urges, but women need a ring to keep us abstinent. It is thoughts like these that are the basis of gender stereotypes. People start to associate men or women with a certain trait or concept, and all of a sudden, crass generalizations are made. It is important to remember that these stereotypes can be both avoided and ended if people stop expecting and supporting the generalizations that only end up hurting people.

Every day for the past year and a half, professor Richard Zielinski wakes up before the sun. From his desk, he produces a humongous tome of music. The text and musical notes inside annotated with multi-colored highlighter and a rainbow of little paper tabs skirting out over its edges marking important passages. “My scores are all color coded — every instrument I hear, I see colors,� Zielinski says. The tome is a massive copy of Joseph Haydn’s “The Seasons,� an early 19th century oratorio. What’s an oratorio? “[It’s] like an opera, but it’s not acted out,� Zielinski explains. The professor carefully studies every page and tries to imagine the piece as the original composer would have. “What would Haydn do?� Zielinksi asks. “What instruments would he use, what dynamic levels, what articulation?� Zielinski sees the performance play out, like a movie, months before it ever

Campus Activities Council will present Sooner Scandals at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday in the Donald W. Reynolds Performing Arts Center of Holmberg Hall. Scandals highlights the different musical, acting and dancing talents of students around campus by putting together a show comprised of different acts from a variety of organizations. “It gives them a sense of community and an opportunity to collaborate with other students and create friendships,� said vocal consultant and advertising sophomore Elizabeth Bryant. “It’s cool because people have the opportunity to perform on a professional stage, which doesn’t happen often.� This year’s show theme is “And So It Was Said,� so each group chose a famous quote to center its show around. Groups are required to have a performance that is around 12 minutes, centered on a famous quote and includes both dialogue and songs, said Bryant. “It’s important to show OU how talented our students are, even if they aren’t specifically dance and music majors,� said Bryant.

Thompson — the 18th century poet upon whose work Haydn’s oratorio is based — establishing a deep understanding and relationship with the composition. W h e n h e ’s d o n e , h e starts his day as director of choral activities for the OU Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts. It’s all in preparation for the Fine Arts College’s world premiere of Joseph Haydn’s “The Seasons� with an accompanying ballet performance 8 p.m. April 12 at the Reynolds Performing Arts Center. The performance will be the centerpiece for the College’s annual President’s Arts Week April 10-17. “This is the first time ‘The Seasons’ has been presented as a full length ballet, so it’s a very exciting opportunity for all of us,� says School of Dance director and “The Seasons� choreographer Mary Margaret Holt. The decision to do a classical musical performance like “The Seasons� with a ballet was made for many reasons, says Zielinski. Beyond merely creating an opportunity for collaboration between the choral,

music and dance schools, the ballet adds a visual element to Haydn’s original composition. “We’re so visual with music now, because of MTV,� Zielinski says. The original performance wouldn’t have had a ballet performance, but Zielinski and Holt agree that it makes for a more interesting and captivating show. “It’ll be a very visual, very active performance with the chorus, orchestra, soloists and dancers,� Zielinski says. Holt and Zielinski are two of a virtual army of faculty, students and staff executing the massive production, encompassing students and faculty from almost every school in the Fine Arts College. “We’ll have the combined choirs, we’ll have the OU symphony orchestra, we’ll have special stand out singing performances and we’ll have the Oklahoma festival ballet,� says College of Fine Arts marketing coordinator Sandra Bent.

Sooners primed for championship meet

Regents approve equipment buy for Switzer Center

OU set to host MPSF championship this weekend at McCasland Field House

JOE MUSSATTO

A purchase of athletic equipment totaling more than $445,000 was approved at Thurs day’s B oard of Regents meeting with a recruiting disadvantage as one reason behind the planned acquisition. The new equipment would occupy the weight room inside the Barry Switzer Football Center located at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The current equipment is over 12 years old, according to the Regents’ agenda, and is “beyond its usual life.” Powerhouse programs, such as Alabama and Oregon, have made recent upgrades to their respective training facilities, and OU’s planned improvements would bridge the gap. “The appearance is a recruiting disadvantage and lacks the technology to train student athletes at the highest level to perform at their peak,” according to the agenda item. A four-person team was required to ensure the new equipment met price, quality and availability specifications. Larry Naifeh, executive associate athletic director, and Jerry Schmidt, director of sports enhancement, were members of the team. Pete Mor is, assistant athletics director, said the weight training staff made the recommendation for new equipment. The current equipment has served its usefulness, he said.

The Oklahoma men’s gymnastics team, the top-ranked squad in the country, will host Stanford, California and Air Force in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Conference Championships at 4 p.m. Saturday. The Sooners had a massive victory over Air Force on January 18, 440.7- 412.2. This will be the third time OU has met Stanford. OU defeated the Cardinal on February 8 at home and six days later fell to them at the Metroplex Challenge in Fort Worth. Saturday will be an emotional meet with both bragging rights and NCAA implications on the line. “It is going to be a dogfight between us and Stanford,” coach Mark Williams said. “We beat them on our floor and lost to them on a neutral floor. Conference championship automatically counts in the national qualifying score which will determine our NCAA seeding.” The Sooners have been preparing for the MPSF Championships for two weeks after a loss at Ohio State on March 15. Oklahoma gave a solid performance against the Buckeyes, but had to count a missed routine. But there were several positive moments in the meet that created momentum going forward for the Sooners. Junior Jacoby Rubin was back in the lineup against Ohio JACOBY RUBIN State after a shoulder injury had ALL-AROUND JUNIOR sidelined him most of this year. “We have been focusing on cleaning and sticking our routines,” Rubin said. “Both are going to be crucial in this meet.” Senior Presten Ellsworth, the reigning conference champion on parallel bars, talked about the significance of this weekend’s meet. “This is what we train for all year,” he said. “The regular season is like practice leading up to this. The pressure is a lot higher but it is important for us to go out and do what we are capable of.” As Oklahoma hosts the MPSF Championships, they hope to see the home crowd supporting them. “We are peaking at the end of the season. It is go time. I want to see my guys go out there and do a good job and have a great meet,” Williams said.

OU’s Barry Switzer Center houses football meeting rooms, coaches’ offices, the football locker room, the equipment room and more. A purchase of athletic equipment totaling more than $445,000 was approved at Thursday’s Board of Regents meeting and the new equipment will be housed in the weight room inside the Barry Switzer Center.

Poor appearance wasn’t the only rationale behind the purchase. The older equipment is accompanied by a higher risk of injury. “In addition to the benefits of new equipment technology, the safety for student athletes will be improved,” the item states. The bulk of the order, more than $300,000, was placed with Power Lift, a weight equipment company in Jefferson, Iowa. The company has installed power lift stations at both Oregon and Alabama in addition to Ohio

State, Texas and Iowa State, according to their website. Legends Fitness and Push Pedal Pull also joined Power Lift as the chosen equipment providers. They were the most responsive and represented the best value to the university, according to the item. Funding for the equipment has “been identified and is available and budgeted within the athletic department operating account." A number of teams at OU use the Switzer Center for training purposes. The

equipment upgrade is expected to affect student-athletes from across a variety of sports. "We anticipate that any upgrade similarly enhances our training activities," Moris said. "Many athletes from several sports train in that facility and will benefit from the new equipment." Joe Mussatto jmussatto@ou.edu
