It’s Chanticleer, not Mountaineer Lindsay Hickman REPORTER

When it was finally announced that Coastal Carolina University would be joining the Sun Belt Conference, people from around the country were trying to write about Coastal, its traditions, colors, and students. Although most of these stories came from people that probably never been on campus, they tried to act like they knew the real Coastal Carolina.

One of the writers of those countless articles actually did know the real Coastal Carolina. Dr. Daniel Ennis is the Dean of Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. He has a nearly viral article on Yosef’s Cabin Blog (an Appalachian State University fan website). You know that one building you have had a math, science, or FYE class in that is the perfect square? Therefore is the easiest place on campus to get lost in, forever. He’s the head honcho of that building. He was an English professor here

for years. Before he became a permanent Chanticleer, he got his masters degree from Appalachian State University. Dr. Ennis attended Appalachian State and was therefore once a Mountaineer. When Coastal Carolina joined App State’s sports conference, The Sun Belt, the Mountaineer fan decided to write an article. Dr. Ennis’s article was inviting Coastal Carolina to be best friends

Don’t Blink Kara Thomas ASSISTANT EDITOR Social media continues to dominate society. In 2015, Americans on average consumed media for 1.7 trillion hours. Which is equivalent to 15.5 hours per person, per day. With this in mind, colleges must keep up with their social media to maintain and attract the attention of students. Brent Reser is the man behind all of Coastal Carolinas social media accounts. He started working at Coastal Carolina in May 2014. Reser is from Spokane, Washington. He graduated from the University of Montana, and worked in the athletic department. At the university, he was the director of new media before coming to Coastal Carolina. “I wanted to focus on social media because it is such a passion of mine,” said Reser. “I was looking at social media positions at other institutions and I saw Coastal had an opening. So I applied and was fortunate enough to be selected.” Brent is in charge of maintaining the university’s official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Yik Yak, Youtube, Pinterest, Snapchat, Vine, and Periscope. The Snapchat account has over 1700 followers and about 1100

Feel at home with Coastal Cookies Samantha Bergold EDITOR-IN-CHIEF You may have heard of Coastal Cookies. Coastal Cookies is a new company in Conway, that offers a homemade cookie delivered right to your door. Jenni Harrelson and Katie Jones created the company Coastal Cookies. Harrelson and Jones met at church. Harrelson owned a bakery in downtown Conway, called Provisions. “The two of us would get together,” said Jones. “Jenni would bake and I would decorate.”

Harrelson said she loves to make an old recipe brand new. “Its always been a passion of mine,” said Harrelson. “We just had that perfect blend.

Overcoming homesickness Samantha Bergold EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Kara Thomas Assistant Editor

Lauren Rose Art Director

Gwen Washington Assistant Art Director

Reporters

As a freshman, they tell you all the different ways to fight homesickness. They tell you to join an organization, make friends, talk to your family on the daily, and plan your trips home. My homesickness did not start until I was a sophomore. My stomach was in knots all the time, I could not eat. I was so miserable being away from family, I almost dropped out. I told myself I would give it one month, if I could not overcome my homesickness by then. I would go home and go to a closer college in the spring. I got active in organizations, I made more friends, but the homesickness still did not go away. When you are an upperclassman, it is presumed that you do not get homesick. I tried talking to my friends about it, that

only made it worse. They made me feel like an outside for missing home and saying that ‘I should be happy to be away.’ This just made me feel like I did not belong at Coastal Carolina. Around this same time, I was taking Communication Theory and Organizational Communication. One day, I was sitting in class, participating in the discussion, and I had deja vu. I suddenly felt like this was where I belonged. The information we were learning pertained exactly to my interests. I never felt like I belonged in the classroom in till I took communication and journalism classes here. Over the past couple years, my amazing professors are the reason I stayed. Being in their classroom and getting to immerse myself in their lectures, is the favorite part of my week. I even like some of my professors better than my friends. For me, all I had to do to overcome homesickness was focus on learning my passion. My advice to you is take your time. Do not put all this pressure on yourself to overcome your homesickness. Sometimes all it takes is living one day at time. Find what your passion about and immerse yourself into learning and experiencing it. I still miss home, but Coastal Carolina became my second home.

NEWS New semester, new student government Samantha Bergold EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

The Student Government Association has many changes in store this semester. Dylan Fender, SGA President, said the main goal of SGA is to lead an effort that not only raises the living and learning quality of campus, but also praises and celebrates the amazing features that we already have. “From a vibrant, knowledgeable, and involved faculty to a bright, diverse, and wonderful student body, we want to celebrate their achievements and inspire them to achieve higher,” said Fender. “By unifying efforts with many other large organizations to better our campus we will create a campus that is a safe haven for our students, a bastion for innovation, and a model for other universities.” Fender said as an organization, they hope to enhance the quality and broaden the number of inter organizational events and programming. “Especially the programming that focuses on some of the larger social and campus issues,” said Fender. “In order to accomplish this, we are creating the office of the president which will house the executive office in one section, but will also serve as a place for communication and coordination for the appointees from some of the larger campus organizations.” Fender said the following organizations were carefully selected to encompass a varied and diverse sample of the student body. “CAB, RHA, IFC, NPHC, and the PHC have all been invited to select a representative to send to the office,” said Fender. “Through this we hope to not only coordinate outreach events to address some of the social ails around campus, but we also hope to coordinate events to enhance, enliven, and empower our wonderful student body to succeed not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well.” Fender said that from forging lasting bonds between organizations, he hopes to see their efforts set forth this year carried on. “Through diligence, good faith,

and no small manner of industry we shall indeed accomplish our object,” said Fender. Fender said SGA is still formulating the office of the president and devising a way to incentivize participation in athletic and multicultural events. SGA will address many different concerns the students currently have. For example, improving the parking and safety of the 544 parking lot. “We are also exploring the possibility of addressing student wage issues, but we have several allies already championing this fight for the students,” said Fender. “And, we trust them to do what is in the best interests of the students.” Some students were concerned from the President and other SGA staff being in the same fraternity would cause a conflict of interest. “I think this is my favorite issue to address, I view myself not as being of several distinct identities, but as one being with many facets to a single identity,” said Fender. “I would be lying if I said that being a PIKE isn’t a significant facet, but so too is being a member of SGA.” Fender said when the two conflict, he reflects back to what being a public servant is about. “Serving the public,” said Fender. “Which means championing my duties to the entirety of the student body over my duties to a small, but significant, portion.” Fender said he wants the student body to know that SGA is here to listen and that they want to listen. “Our office is in the Student Union, room 203 B, right above CINO Grille,” said Fender. “We would love for any student who has concerns about campus, or sees something amazing or beautiful about campus to come to our office and discuss it with us.” Fender said SGA does exist to address the problems on campus, but also exists to praise the achievements of the student body. “So please, never hesitate to stop by our offices,” said Fender. “Find one of the executive board members or one of our amazing senators, or send us an email any time you see something wrong, or you see something right, with Coastal Carolina University.”

Before Reser came here, the Instagram account was at 270 followers and now has 4,735 followers. “There was an established presence, but when I got here it started to grow,” said Reser. “We made a lot of progress in a little under a year and a half, but there is still a lot of work to do.” Reser wants to get the students involved as much as possible. He is going to be having his first Coastal Carolina student social media advisory group meeting on September 22nd. Students applied to be in this group and he is going to be talking about social media as a career. In return, the students can give ideas on how to improve Coastal Carolinas social media. “Serving as a voice for Coastal Carolina University is such a responsibility,” said Reser. “It is really humbling to be able to speak on

behalf of this great college. It is also awesome to be able to interact with students on a daily basis.” Reser blogs about his personal life during his free time, and really enjoys it. “When I am here at Coastal and when I am on the job, I am being the voice for the university. So it is nice during my off hours, to be able to have my own voice,” said Reser. “My blog serves as an instrument for that. It is nice to be able to write and have a record of my thoughts and opinions. I could go back 4 years from now and see what I was doing then, or what I was thinking.” Reser tweets “don’t blink” everyday to motivate others. “It’s not something I just tweet, it’s something that I say all the time as well, it’s my personal motto and philosophy on life,” said Reser. “This saying comes from the Kenny Chesney song “Don’t Blink.” Life is short you don’t want to miss any part of it.

All the cookies are completely homemade with all natural ingredients. For example, they have chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter chip, and mint chocolate chip. You can see the complete list of flavors on CoastalCookies.net. “All the cookies are completely made by me and Katie,” said Harrelson. “We are forever creating new seasonal type flavors.” Jones said they deliver to the whole Conway area, including Coastal Carolina on and off campus housing. “If someone calls and we are here and able, we can bake it right away,” said Jones. “They can get it within an hour, but sometimes we may be out on a delivery and will have to call them back.” Harrelson said they are very fortunate to be stay at home moms and be able to do what they love.

with Appalachian State. It was from that article that spurned Dr. Ennis into action. Dr. Ennis wrote a rebuttal article, trying to introduce those Appalachian State fans to Coastal Carolina fans. Dr. Ennis described different ways to be a true Coastal Carolina fun. “It’s Chanticleer. SHAWNT-iclear. Not “Chandelier” or (even worse) “Chainty-kleer,” wrote Dr. Ennis. Dr. Ennis also recommended them to use Chants short. “We’re proud that our mascot comes from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales,” wrote Dr. Ennis. “And secretly pleased that in Chaucer the Chanticleer is described as being both clever and endowed with an impressive sex drive.” Dr. Ennis also recommended fan prepare for the teal field. “When you watch the telecast of your beloved Mountaineers losing during their first visit to Brooks Stadium in Conway,” wrote Dr. Ennis. “You don’t need to adjust the color

“We love baking and making people smile,” said Harrelson. “We are lucky we have husbands that can help with the marketing part, brainstorming, and the taste testing.” Jones said she wants to spoil the Coastal Carolina students. “We did do deliveries there last year from the parents that found us,” said Jones. “Since orientation, we have really been able to connect more to the school.” Harrelson and Jones are thankful for the support of Kim Gomez, Debbie Conner, Melinda Hyman, Meredith Kahl, and Jordan Smith for

helping them get the word out about Coastal Cookies on campus. Harrelson said the students are getting a real product, that is fresh, and made daily. “Nothing is better than a cookie right out of the oven,” said Harrelson. For $14.99, you can get a dozen homemade cookies of your choosing. The delivery is included in the price. To place an order, you can call Coastal Cookies at (843)488-1112.

Josh Sanders, a science major, said he was impressed with what Dr. Ennis wrote. “I gave it a retweet and favorite on Twitter,” said Sanders. “To go onto a future rival fan’s site and show your support for Coastal, that’s big.” Linda Newsom, a history major, said she wish she had him for a class after reading the article. “I loved it,” said Newsom. “I just couldn’t stop laughing, picturing Dr. Ennis saying this stuff in person.” Dr. Ennis, you are now a Chanticleer legend, thanks for sticking up for your place of employment. You rocked before we were heading to the Sun Belt, but now you are truly cool.

Different personalities: social media vs. the real world Quentin Smalls REPORTER

Has this ever happen to you? You are on Twitter and you see that someone speaks his or her mind and is outspoken to everyone that he or she interacts with. The next day, you see that same individual and when you ask him or her about their opinion on a topic, that person acts isolated, and becomes silent without giving you an answer. This is a common trend around the world. Ever since social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn became relevant, individuals feel like they do not have to portray their true self online. According to Jeff Bullas, there are ten personas that individuals have when it comes to social media. For example, the can be shy, a self promoter, an entertainer, or a comedian. An individual’s social media personality is different compared to their real life personas. Dr. Kyle Holody, a communication professor, said that starting in the 1990s, when the internet started to gain popularity, people realized that they did not have to broadcast their flaws. “If people were socially awkward, they can hide it,” Holody said. “Instead, people can show off their interests and intelligence, and create a brand new version of themselves.” Having a social media version of yourself is helpful when it comes to finding a job. “People realize now, thanks to LinkedIn, that their social media personality has an effect on their real life personas,” Dr. Holody said. “People present themselves favorably, whether that it means to showcase their work or social skills, in order to emphasize their profile to better their chances to receive a job.” No social media platform exemplifies the split personalities better than Instagram. The idea behind Instagram is to post pictures and to receive likes, comments, and reposts. According to an article by the Pew Research Center in 2015, about 26% of all internet users use Instagram. Twenty-four percent of those people

DANIELLE WERLEY, THE CHANTICLEER

are attending college, and 28% of those people are in urban neighborhoods. “Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, when they post a sexy picture of themselves, their followers feel like that they have a connection with that celebrity because of that picture,” Holody said. “However, if someone were to dress up in a conservative fashion and they only receive minimum likes and comments, their mentality would change if they were introverts as if they were to receive attention as extroverts.” Dr. Holody said he believes we are in a new age of technology and communication. “The socially awkward individuals and the extrovert individuals have new ways to get their messages across without feeling neglected or rejected by everyone,” said Dr. Holody.

People can show off their interests and intelligence, and create a brand new version of themselves.

Socially connected or socially awkward? Malcolm Ivory REPORTER The use of texting and social media have had a huge impact on how we communicate in the recent decade. Even though social media has technically existed since the late 1970s, it really did not explode until the mid 2000s when sites like Myspace, Youtube, and Facebook took over. Along with the explosion of texting and these networks, came habits of using them as our go to method of communication. This can be a problem being that we communicate with each other best in person, or at least vocally over the phone. The misuse of texting and social media can lead to impaired communication and social skills because it allows us to hide from face to face interactions. Although texting and social networks have proven to be useful, signs are starting to show downhill effects on our communication skills. People, mostly teens and young adults, are beginning to embrace digital connectivity rather than personal interactions. A child could understand that meeting someone would be much more enjoyable if you can shake their hand, hear their voice, look into their eyes, smell their fragrance, and most of all, talk to them. However, society is still leaning towards scrolling though the pictures on their Facebook page, checking out posts they like, their statuses, and the about me sections of their profiles. If they do not like the person, or if

the instant messaging conversation takes a bad turn, they can just log off. There is no logging off in real life communication. If you do not like the person you are talking to and want to end the conversation, you use basic conversation ending techniques like making short ended statements, mentioning that you are busy, or telling them you do not want to talk. Notice that because of these non personal interactions, social awkwardness among people is skyrocketing. Some people really struggle to even hold small talk conversations between customers at their job, co workers, strangers, and new classmates. Every social interaction you have with another person is a learning experience. The actual talking is not the only vital key in face to face communication. It is the tone of voice and body language, two things you cannot observe through text. About 90% of human communication is nonverbal. So when sending a text, a person is only using about seven to ten percent of their full communication potential. That is like only studying for seven questions on a 100 question exam. Occasionally messages are misread or misinterpreted because of the absence of body language. They could easily appear sarcastic, disrespectful, and mean depending on how many ways they can be taken. When these messages are misread it leads to confusion between the sender and the recipient about the point trying to be made. There is nothing wrong with texting and using social media. They

are still very useful for getting short points across, promoting, inviting, and connecting with people seemingly out of reach. The only thing we can do as a society is promote more interpersonal meetings instead of virtually connecting. It’s still important to watch how much we rely on these technologies to do what we were naturally created to do. For the misuse of these luxuries could have negative effects on our social skills.

SPORTS Got SOC? Lindsay Hickman REPORTER

Any sporting event at Coastal Carolina University is not complete without the Spirit of the Chanticleer (SOC) Marching Band. The band is a key element to any Coastal Carolina experience. The Coastal Carolina experience is just not complete without yelling out ‘NO’ to someone’s ‘CI’ or not singing along to “whoa whoa whoa kemosabe.” Many things have changed for the SOC Marching Band, but some traditions will remain. Under Dr. Raul Barcenes’ second season as Band Director, he has invigorated the band members, increased membership, added difficult/dynamic performances, and challenging musical numbers into the mix. The Spirit of the Chanticleer will no longer be performing the same music a whole game. Dr. Barcenes has completely changed the Spirit of the Chanticleer Band, no longer will students see their band director in Coastal Polos, but black suits with teal ties. Dr. Barcenes not only leads the band in its sound, but its style. He makes sure that everyone is prepared for the show, no matter if it’s halftime, after a game, or a pep rally. He thinks that his band should always be ready for success. “I am excited to see what happens this year with the band,” said Dr. Barcenes. “They are extremely motivated and they have put a lot of work into the football halftime show and just being ready to perform. I think they are much improved from last year, not saying anything bad about that year’s group. This year they are just so motivated. They are really fun to work with because they came in ready and willing to work.” The Spirit of the Chanticleer Marching Band has an entire new halftime show entitled “Queens.” “The show is going to add songs that have been made popular by some famous female singers, but as an added twist we’ve added a Queen song too,” said Dr. Barcenes. “I think it’s a very unique program, and I think it will keep fans pumped up for the game.” Clarinet Lead Tranyce Spann, a senior band member says that the

LINDSAY HICKMAN, THE CHANTICLEER

band is better than ever. “I’ve been with the SOC since 2011 and honestly, this year is the best yet,” said Spann. “We have a whole new halftime show that I think a lot of people will really like, plus we’ve added some current music into the lineup, so people can dance along. My favorite song we have this year is called “We Don’t Have To Go To War” it’s brand new and the brass section really sounds amazing on that song.” Spann thinks that the students will really like it and get them pumped at the game. The Spirit of the Chanticleer Band will be performing at Brooks Stadium before every home football game and at every halftime. Come early and dance along to the South’s Favorite Band, The Spirit of the Chanticleer Marching Band.

RESTAURANT Simply Southern Smokehouse

1

LOCATION MYRTLE BEACH, SC

TYPE SOUTHERN BUFFET

RATING 10

Simply southern Smokehouse is a help¬ yourself family joint with options ranging from BBQ, soul food, wings, dumplings, lima beans, and much more. The thirty minute drive right off of highway 17 is certainly worth it. At first, you may think you drove up to the wrong building for the outside looks very similar to a normal house. The smell of fried chicken and homemade mac and cheese lets you know that you have arrived at the right place. The lunch and dinner items include a large buffet with a wide variety of southern food that includes two different types of BBQ, fried chicken, wings, collards, biscuits, and cornbread. They also serve a variety of fruits

and vegetables and do not worry, dessert is covered as well. From banana pudding to peach cobbler, your sweet tooth will be satisfied. Simply Southern Smokehouse is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am ¬9pm. The price for the buffet ranges for age. During lunch hours, the buffet for an adult is $7.87. After lunch, the dinner hours go to $10.20. A drink is only a dollar more and certainly gets more bang for your buck. If the low price and great food is not enough for you, then surely the great customer service is. All the employees are charmed with that certain southern hospitality feel and work hard to make sure you feel right at home. It is a great place to take all your

friends and enjoy a home cooked meal that will have you leaving satisfied and content. Jessica Wetzler REPORTER

of The Weeknd that many of his followers have wanted to see from the beginning, it also brings out a personal side. He mentions his mother’s verbal abuse in the opening track “Real Life,” saying “Mama called me destructive” and that he would never find love because he “always seemed to push them away.”This album digs deep into a side of The Weeknd that makes his listeners love him and his music even more inspiring. Beauty Behind the Madness is currently out and available for download. I highly encourage readers to listen to this delight for the ears. Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Ray appear on this album, branching out from the The Weeknd’s roots as an R&B singer. This album is a must listen because of its

musical diversity while giving the listener a sense of well being. One thing is for certain: The Weeknd surely has more to give. Ian Brooking REPORTER

If you are looking for a film that will transport you back to your childhood, then Hotel Transylvania is the film for you. Remember all the monsters you were afraid of as a child? They are back! Hotel Transylvania takes you to the unknown world of the monsters that frightened you. The film takes you into the personal life of Dracula, who runs a high end resort for monsters. Dracula keeps the resort hidden away from the human world. Dracula’s world gets thrown out of routine when his resort is discovered by a teenage boy. The teenage boy stumbles on the resort by accident. Dracula has to then deal with figuring out a way to keep the human boy from being discovered by his monster guests.

Dracula is also throwing a birthday party for his eighteen year old daughter. He has to keep the boy away from his curious daughter, who wants nothing more than to interact with the human world. If you are looking for an adventure, then this is the film for you. It will keep you on the edge of your seat, laughing hysterically the whole time.
