Elections: low turnout, no grievances Matt Epting and Sarah Campbell will lead Student Government next year MICHELLE JOHNSTON, Campus Reporter PAIGHTEN HARKINS, Campus Edtior

A little over 3.2 percent of eligible Sooners voted in Student Government Association’s new president and vice president, Matt Epting and Sarah Campbell. This year ever y position in the election, from Undergraduate Student Congress seats to the presidential position, was uncontested. Epting and Campbell received the highest percentage of eligible votes. Of the 22,055 eligible voters, only 707 voted in the presidential race, according to the election report. The new Campus Activities Council chairman, Layne Ferguson, received an even smaller percentage of votes from the 22,055, ending the two days of voting with 2.6 percent, or 577 votes. The next Student Bar Association president, Elise Puma, received 17 total votes out of the 788 eligible voters, or about 2.2 percent, according to the election report. Jeremiah Stinnett, the next Housing Center Student Association president, received 2.3 percent of the votes, or

115 of the 5,082 eligible votes, according to the election report. In April 2012 when Joe Sangirardi and Rainey Sewell ran uncontested for the president and vice presidential seats, they raked in 1,766, or about 7.9 percent of the student body, according to Daily archives. While the April 2012 presidential ticket wasn’t opposed, other positions, such as CAC chair, were contested. In the contested April 2013 elections, when Ernest Ezeugo and Madeline Grunewald won SGA president and vice president, about 3,373 students voted in total. Election chair Avik Mukherjee said he expected the low voter turnout because all the positions were uncontested. “We didn’t expect to see anything in the 2,000 range. It’s right on par with where I thought it would be,” Mukherjee said. For this year’s election, only one physical polling location was open for students, opposed to previous year’s when polling locations were open at the Law College and Dale Hall. Placed in the Oklahoma Memorial Union, less than 10 percent of students voted in person, Mukherjee said The remaining 90 percent voted online, Mukherjee said. The other physical polling locations were removed because fewer than 20 people voted in each location during the last spring election, Mukherjee said.

the kitchen, cooking the most delicious dishes she has ever tasted. In turn, she was inspired to take up baking herself when she was older. “It’s not common, these days, for young women to bake home goods,” Smith said. “At least, not as common as it used to be.” It was while she was working on her visual communications major at OU in 2011 that Smith decided to open up a small cooking blog to share her recipes with the public. Smith said it was just for fun in the beginning and was a great place to store

OU sudent begins blog about baking, turns into business SAMA KHAWAJA

Life & Arts Reporter

Most people would read a book or watch “Breaking Bad” on Netflix to wind down from classes. Kelli Smith chose to bake. Ever since she was a little girl, Smith said she has enjoyed watching her grandmother bustle about

all her recipes. “It was kind of meditative for me,” Smith said. It was only last year, when her blog picked up in popularity, that she decided to open her own business, and Confections and Coffee was born. Operating out of her apartment, Smith didn’t have to venture far for customers. Irene Campbell, one of her closest friends, said Smith would ask close friends if they wanted to order her baked goods.


April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the O U Women’s O u t re a c h C e n t e r h a s events planned for the next several weeks. Sexual Assault Awareness Month is a campaign by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center to raise awareness and educate people about sexual violence. “Sexual Assault Awareness Month is an important message on any campus, especially because 80 percent of women who will experience sexual assault are under the age of 30,” said Melanie Adams, the programming coordinator for the Women’s Outreach Center.




Epting, Campbell to take SGA office Life’s a beach for The new executive officers will take office in November for shortest term MATT WOODS

Campus Reporter

On Wednesday night, Matt Epting and Sarah Campbell celebrated the end of the presidential campaign — and they’re already making history. Although the campaign was uncontested, the future Student Government Association president and vice-president will begin the shortest term to date starting Thursday. Unofficially confirming the pair until November, Wednesday’s election tally totaled 3.2 percent of eligible student voters, according to the election report. Epting and Campbell’s transitional term will be half the length of previous terms because of a referendum passed in 2012, which changed the timing of presidential terms. WEATHER Partly cloundy with a high of 84. Wind SW at 24 mph. Chance of rain 10 percent.

“It’s probably one of the lower voter turnouts that SGA has had in its history,” said Epting, political science and public relations junior. In addition to the shortest SGA presidency, this term set a precedent for one of the lowest student voter turnouts. “[Elections] could have been a lot more stressful,” human relations major Campbell said, “It’s just exciting to see that campus is still involved.” Epting’s been involved with SGA throughout his entire time at OU. By engaging in conversations with students about their desired college experiences, Epting and Campbell developed an agenda to maximize the undergraduate student experience, Epting said.

Seafood to shopping: freshman travel cross-country to enjoy spring break EMMA SULLIVAN Campus Reporter

Following their first college spring break, members of the Freshmen Experience took some time to talk about their lives and what happened during their time off from school. For some, like Jessica Graro, spring break meant time away from the stresses of college and relaxing on the beach with friends and family.

BEANS: Baking business grew quick SEX: WOC claims, ‘consent is sexy’ Continued from page 1 “It’s difficult,” Smith said. “You have to create a name for yourself and a reputation.” But it wasn’t long before Smith was receiving orders from outside her circle of friends. She was especially popular during the holidays, since she would bake festive goods for the occasion. For St. Patrick’s Day, Smith baked pretzel wands dipped in chocolate and Lucky Charms. “I think she’s really good at what she does, and people like what she makes,” Campbell said. In February, Smith decided to take a step forward and raise money for a storefront via popular crowd-funding website Kickstarter. Smith’s campaign wasn’t as fruitful as she had hoped, yet the failure to meet the campaign’s goals didn’t discourage her. “It was exciting being able to take a risk that I didn’t know the outcome of and being okay with that,” Smith said. Smith learned a lot through the experience in terms of what it took to own a business, and she also got to know the people of

Norman. For now, she said, she just wants to focus on developing her recipes and eventually try again when she is ready. Megan Pinnick, pre-nursing junior, said it was admirable to see someone start their own business and follow their dreams. After all, it isn’t easy making a name for yourself while being surrounded by such popular chain restaurants. “I think it’s important to know that Norman is growing so much and focusing more and more on local businesses here,” Smith said. “But you definitely have to have a niche for yourself in whatever you’re trying to sell, otherwise you’re going to be the same as everyone else.” Smith said she still has a long way to go in terms of experience in the baking industry. However, her business is still going strong, and she continues to receive orders for her creations. For now, she is content with baking from the comfort of her apartment. “I’m confident that I bake well,” Smith said. “Well enough for people to buy.” Sama Khawaja,

Continued from page 1 The Women’s Outreach Center will begin its activities Apr il 7 at the Oklahoma Memorial Union, where students can sign a large quilt square to show support for sexual assault victims, Adams said. They will combine these squares with others from across the nation to create The Monument Quilt that will cover t h e Na t i o n a l Ma l l i n Washington D.C., Adams said. The center will also table on the South Oval to hand out sexual assault information. Students can spin a prize wheel to answer trivia questions and win prizes. The

center’s workers will also hand out teal ribbon stickers so Sooners can show support, Adams said. According to OUPD ’s 2013 Fire and Safety Report, 12 forcible sex offenses were reported in 2012, and 16 were reported in 2011. However, this number does not accurately represent the truth, Adams said. About 60 percent of sexual assaults aren’t reported to police and two-thirds of assaults are committed by people the victim knows, Adams said. “When people know that in America, every two minutes someone is sexually assaulted, they stop to think about serious this crime is,” Adams said. Adams said that the center will partner with local campus hangouts to

provide bar stamps that read, “Consent is Sexy” and “WOC” to verify paid entry. On April 14 and 15, the center will hold its White Ribbon Campaign, which lets men, as well as women, speak out about violence against women. “We must change the mind-set about sexual assault, its victims and who the perpetrators are in order to create the same environment for reporting this crime like we do any other,” Adams said. “That will not happen if victims are continually treated as accomplices in their own victimization.” Mike Brestovansky,

BEACH: Spring break not all fun and games for all Sooners in experience Continued from page 1 Graro spent time south of Daytona Beach, Fla., with her best friend, mom and boyfriend, in an area called Wilbur by the Sea, where her uncle owns a beach house. The area is residential and private, which gave her more freedom to play and relax on the beach, Graro said. Graro is also a seafood fanatic and ate a lot of her favorite food at a seafood shack close to where she was staying. “I’ve gone every day since we’ve been here, and I’m not ashamed of it,” Graro said. “I will eat them out of house and home.” For Spencer Smith, spring break was not spent the way he planned, after an unexpected death occurred in the family. Smith’s uncle passed away, and the majority of his spring break was spent with his family in South Dakota. He was also a pall bearer on March 18 and 19. “It’s unfortunate that he had to leave us so soon. He was only 46 years old,” Smith said. However, Smith did spend time with his friends at South Dakota State on March 21 before returning to school. “I’m just going to charge ahead for the 25 days of school left before finals,” Smith said. Audra Brulc spent her spring break at home in Tulsa, Okla., hanging out with friends and catching up with her long lost love: reading. “I was getting excited about something that I was reading, and that felt really good again,” Brulc said.


Lately, Brulc hasn’t had the time or energy to get into reading like she once did, but over break, she decided to change that. “You should find things that excite you,” Brulc said. Melanie Purdy spent her spring break helping to take care of her father, who has cancer, by doing things like cooking and helping with the house. She also saw her best friend, went to a DJ show in Houston and spent some time in College Station, Texas. Christina Hamilton spent her spring break with her aunt, who lives in New York. She spent time shopping in places like T.J. Maxx and Forever 21. “I definitely maximized my shopping potential,” Hamilton said. She also met with her friend, who is going to Pace University, had lunch at Olive Garden and later visited M&M’s World. “It’s like three floors of M&M heaven,” Hamilton said. During Hamilton’s last night there, she celebrated her cousin-in-law’s 30th birthday on a boat cruise on the Hudson River. Her family shared the boat with a number of other parties. Hamilton was disappointed with the amount of people who didn’t know how to wobble, so she taught them how. “I led the dance line, which is totally not like me, but it was fun,” Hamilton said.

Fred Jones Museum director puts focus on students LUKE REYNOLDS • ASSISTANT LIFE & ARTS EDITOR

The Daily sat down with Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art director Emily Neff, who took over for previous museum director Ghislain d’Humieres in January. Neff holds bachelor’s degree in art history from Yale University, a masters degree in art history from Rice University and a Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin. The Daily: Tell me about your background and education. Emily Neff: I come from Houston. Our children are seventh-generation Texans. But we love being in Oklahoma. I was raised in Houston and went to the museum there, just the typical sort of thing. My mother loved going to museums, so she took me there. So I had a kind of comfort level walking into museums. I always felt like I had a home in museums. So I went to Yale as an undergraduate, and it is because of the university art museum there that I am sitting here now talking to you. I was able to spend as much time as I wanted in the museums. They were free and open to the public; I actually often studied there. That was my life.

The Daily: What are some thoughts you had coming into the position of director at Fred Jones? EN: I was curator of American Art for many, many years, and the joke about me is that my mother left me in a basket on the front steps of the fine arts museum of Houston, and I never left. It’s partly true. I’m very loyal and dedicated to that place. I felt like it was a good time to leave, though, having accomplished many of the things I wanted to. It sounds corny, but I really had no interest leaving Houston or leaving the MFA (Museum of Fine Arts). I could’ve retired there very happily, but a friend of mine said, ‘Why don’t you just go?’ I remembered being very impressed with the FJJMA in 2001 when I first visited. The director at the time gave me a tour, and I remember turning the corner and seeing The (U.S.) State Department Collection. So I remember being impressed at the time. It sounds corny, but I finally caved and came. I hit the OU campus and thought, ‘Oh my god, this is where I want to be. I want to be a part of this.’ There is an atmosphere here of a great attitude. Things are happening here. There’s an appreciation of good ideas, and the museum is growing.

The Daily: Tell me about a day in the life of an art museum director. EN: I think it’s the difference between being a director and a curator. My title includes chief curator, and that’s important to me, because I never want to completely let go of that intimate relationship that you have with pieces of art. The difference is that a day in the life of a curator is probably a little more hands on with things like the market. So, becoming aware of potential acquisitions and doing your research and scholarly writing — all of that is a part of what I do, but adding in the director title makes for a lot of administration. So, for example, we had a meeting the other day and looked at our mission and had a conversation about it that will probably grow into another conversation about the mission. We’re probably going to have a retreat soon to really look at what we have to come up with a new long-range plan — strategic planning and strategic thinking. What are we doing right? Where could we do better? So the director is trying to look from the outside in, always looking at the bigger picture.

The Daily: What are some future goals you have for the museum? EN: Our emphasis is on the students. We want the students to make the university art museum a part of their home. So, we’re working on getting students in, and we’ve done a lot of collaborative work with other departments. Engineering uses us a lot, and there are other departments that you might not think could figure out ways to use the museum but can. You know, I came into this, and it is not a turn-around operation. This is a museum in great shape, but you want to continually be improving. The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art will hosts a lecture over Apache Arts 6 p.m. today in the Mary Eddy and Fred Jones Auditorium. BENNETT HALL/THE DAILY
