OCCURRENCE

Truck rolls over student in Quad

CHOMPING AT THE BIT

Tigers invade The Swamp for top-10 matchup with the Gators

Chris Abshire Sports Writer

Victim conscious, walking after Staff Reports A serene afternoon nap in the Quad quickly became hectic for one University student when a Facility Services truck rolled over him Thursday afternoon. The Facility Services worker was leaving the Quad around 1:15 p.m. after doing maintenance, but he didn’t see the student resting on the grass and rolled over part of the student’s upper body, according to witnesses. It is not clear what work the Facility Services worker was doing. “The guy rolled over and slammed on the hood of the truck,” said Sam Stevens, English senior. “[The driver] yelled, ‘I didn’t see you.’” The student was up and walking after the incident, with minor injuries on his face. He and the driver of the vehicle declined to comment when approached by Daily Reveille reporters. Facility Services would not comment on the situation because the investigation is still ongoing. The LSU Police Department investigation is also ongoing. Police and emergency responders arrived at the scene, but the student refused to be taken to the hospital, though he later went on his own. “I just came out of class,” said Tonya Gauna, kinesiology student. “I’m a nurse. He let me check him out but refused an ambulance.” Identities of the student and the driver have not been released.

Then-sophomore LSU running back Spencer Ware gets taken down Oct. 8, 2011, during the Tigers’ 41-11 victory against the Gators.

Ask LSU junior cornerback Tharold Simon if No. 4 LSU has played to its ranking yet, and the answer is an emphatic “no.” “We haven’t proven we’re one of the best teams yet,” Simon said. The Tigers (5-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) get a chance to prove it Saturday, when they travel to Gainesville, Fla., to take on No. 10 Florida (4-0, 3-0 SEC). By the time LSU toughed out a 12-10 road victory at Auburn two weeks ago, the Gators had already racked up a trio of impressive league wins behind a stingy scoring defense. Florida owns a pair of SEC road triumphs, grinding out a 20-17 victory at Texas A&M and pulling away from Tennessee, 3720, in Knoxville, Tenn. Now, the Gators welcome an elite opponent into The Swamp, a location that has been a terror to the Tigers and coach Les Miles during his tenure. LSU is 1-2 in Ben Hill

Griffin Stadium under Miles, and the lone win was a 33-29 thriller in 2010 that required a controversial fake field-goal toss and a game-winning touchdown pass with six seconds to play. “If you enjoy classic college venues, and if you enjoy the SEC, this is as good as it gets,” Miles said. “Quality opponent on the road and it’s loud, so I think it’s a great place to play.” But LSU is coming off a 44-11 rout against Florida in 2011, one that included a Jordan Jefferson jump pass and a taunting penalty on Tiger punter Brad Wing during a fake punt. Simon says those memories will fan the flames of an already tense rivalry. “We know they’ll be ready for us after the way we beat them last year,” he said. “We’re prepared for the worst from the crowd and the best shot from their team.” Simon and a relatively green LSU secondary will have to deal with a revamped Florida offense,

KEYS TO THE GAME: Get Florida off the field. The Gators control the ball for an average of 34:47 per game. Hold on to the ball. LSU has fumbled seven times in the last two games, a record high for consecutive games in the Les Miles era. Contain Driskel’s scrambling. The sophomore quarterback is dangerous with his feet, running 148 yards this season.

Hope for more Mad Hatter Magic. Be it the five fourth-down conversions in 2007, the fake field-goal bounce in 2010 or the jump pass last season, Les Miles always seem to save his best stunts for Florida.

INTERNATIONAL Top designer labels leave Argentina due to new economic restrictions BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Adios, Armani. Hasta la vista, Louis Vuitton. The world’s most luxurious designer brands are abandoning Argentina rather than complying with tight new government economic restrictions, leaving empty shelves and storefronts along the capital’s elegant Alvear Avenue. Kenzo is the latest to go. The Japanese label’s owner, Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, issued a statement Tuesday blaming Argentina’s “complex economic context” for the closure of its store Oct. 10. More than 60 inmates escape from Liberian prison late Wednesday MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — State-run media says more than 60 inmates have broken out of prison in the West African nation of Liberia. Regional authorities and state radio said authorities were combing nearby forests in an effort to rearrest the escapees late Wednesday. The jailbreak took place at a maximum security prison in the city of Zwedru on the border with Ivory Coast. The region is currently hosting tens of thousands of Ivorian refugees who fled in the wake of Ivory Coast’s postelection violence.

Scientific research on mice suggests new fertility treatments

Katrina victims express displeasure with hurricane tour operators

Farmers, shipyard workers protest at Iraklio airport in Greece

NEW YORK (AP) — Scientists have turned mouse skin cells into eggs that produced baby mice — a technique that, if successfully applied to humans, could someday allow women to stop worrying about the ticking of their biological clocks and perhaps even help couples create “designer babies.” For technical as well as ethical reasons, nobody expects doctors will be making eggs from women’s skin cells any time soon. But some see possibilities and questions about its use. Tropical Storm Nadine dissolves in Atlantic short of all-time record

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek police clashed with shipyard workers protesting pay arrears Thursday after they broke into the Defense Ministry grounds, while hundreds of farmers on tractors tried to invade the country’s second-busiest airport on Crete during an anti-austerity protest. Unions have promised new protests and a general strike next week when the government’s new €13.5 billion ($17.5 billion) program is debated in parliament — where the conservative-led coalition controls enough seats to pass the measures.

MIAMI (AP) — The cyclone formerly known as Tropical Storm Nadine has dissolved after meandering for more than 21 days, falling short of the all-time Atlantic Ocean longevity record. The National Hurricane Center issued its last bulletin for Nadine on Thursday morning. Forecasters had a little fun with the storm in the final advisory, saying: “Bye Bye Nadine ... What a long strange trip it’s been.” Nadine tied 1971’s Ginger for second place on the list of longestlasting cyclones of at least tropical storm strength.

Naturalized U.S. citizen accused of being Russia agent appears in court

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Some New Orleans residents and city officials are pushing back against tour operators who bus out-oftowners into the city’s Lower 9th Ward, where Hurricane Katrina unleashed a wall of water that pushed homes off foundations and stranded residents on rooftops when the levees failed. About 9 million people visit New Orleans each year, mostly to see its stately homes along oak-lined avenues, dine at its renowned restaurants and take in the jazz and ribaldry of Bourbon Street. Update on BP spill reported from oil platform in southeast Louisiana

HOUSTON (AP) — A naturalized U.S. citizen accused of illicitly obtaining military cutting-edge microelectronics for Russia formally heard the charges against him Thursday in a case reminiscent of the Cold War era. Alexander Fishenko and six others made their initial appearance Thursday in Houston federal court. An indictment unsealed Wednesday accuses Fishenko of scheming to purposely evade strict export controls for cutting-edge microelectronics.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Coast Guard says an estimated 76 gallons of crude oil spilled from an oil platform operated by Apache Corp. off the coast of southeast Louisiana. Petty Officer 2nd Class Bill Colclough said the spill was reported to authorities Tuesday. Colclough said a sheen created by the spill has dispersed and none of the spilled oil was recoverable. The site, designated as Grand Isle Block 43, is about 100 miles west of BP’s Macondo well.

Former student’s start-up earns $150,000 in 2012 CEO withdrew to focus on company Ferris McDaniel Staff Writer

The young entrepreneur has high ambitions for his company in the coming years. He said Big Fish is currently focusing on event partnerships, which means it designs presentations for companies at events. But Nguyen said he also wants the company to start hosting its own events, similar to TED talks. He is the media chairman for a TEDx event, which will focus on the evolution of LSU as an innovative and creative force in Louisiana. The event is being held at the University in March. Big Fish may be in charge of the event’s video production, he said. And still in the brainstorming stage is a book that Nguyen wants to write. He said it will be about presentations, how to give them on slide shows and what constitutes an experience, referring to the company’s tagline. And then there’s the most ambitious goal of all. “I want this company to be the world’s standard of presentations,” Nguyen said. “I want to be the go-to people. When you want that next big sale, you go to us.”

In the midst of his senior year at the University, Kenny Nguyen, founder and CEO of Big Fish Presentations, withdrew himself from school on Wednesday to focus all of his energy on his fast-growing college start-up. “I’m trying to gather myself right now because I’m about to shift my life to full-time this, and I think it’s going to drive our company up a lot,” Nguyen said. “I’m not going to be a student anymore, but I had a lot of good experiences at LSU that helped me out.” Big Fish, which has been featured in Forbes magazine and named Inc. magazine’s “coolest college start-up,” is a presentation strategy company that serves TAYLOR BALKOM / The Daily Reveille three purposes: presentation de- Former University undergraduate Kenny Nguyen is the CEO and founder of Big Fish Presentations, which now employs 11 people. sign, presentation consulting and employees — the “best young worthwhile, he said. commercial video production, including one intern. “I encourage any student en“We moved in here because talent” around.

Driskel has completed 69.6 percent of his passes for 698 yards and four touchdowns with one interception this season.

LSU head coach Les Miles sings the alma mater with his team Sept. 8 after the Tigers’ victory Washington.

Much like in “Come Together,” the Tigers’ play has been disorienting at the surface level. They’ve underperformed compared to preseason expectations, dropping in the polls for a number of on-field reasons. Injuries along the offensive line have the unit shuffling almost weekly to find a balance. The secondary is young — and

growing. The case is the same for junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who has been effective while occasionally putting the ball in the opponent’s hands. Delve deeper, though, and the orchestrations describe a talented group of men who aren’t getting along like they once did, as one interpretation of the charttopper goes.

Tigers should look to Shepard for guidance COOL HAND LUKE LUKE JOHNSON Sports Editor With confidence in the No. 4 Tigers waning faster than Trindon Holliday with a full head of steam, LSU might do well to listen to a senior member of its team as its showdown in The Swamp awaits. The Tigers should open their ears to the man who knows the burdensome weight of expectation and how to deal with the adversity that invariably comes with it. “It comes with the territory,” said senior wide receiver Russell

Shepard. “If you want to be great, you have to go through the struggles. ... It happens, man. It’s part of the game. You’ve got to learn from [the struggles] and benefit from them at the end of the day.” Shepard seemed to know that by talking about LSU’s struggles this season, he encapsulated his entire career. “I’m the key example,” Shepard said. “I came in on highs, and throughout my career, I’ve been up and down. At the end of the day, it’s taught me how to handle times like this. You’ve got to take them as they come.” And Shepard’s handled them. Remember when he arrived on campus in the Spring of 2009? He was the electrifying dual-threat quarterback who was

LSU looks to right the ship Tigers host David Toms Intercollegiate Mike Gegenheimer Sports Contributor

Lady Tigers tee off at Fall Preview James Moran Sports Contributor

LSU will look for some home cooking as the No. 12 Tigers host the David Toms Intercollegiate at the University Club Golf Course. The tournament will begin Saturday at 8:30 a.m. and finish Sunday. LSU coach Chuck Winstead said the Tigers have valuable insight on how to play their home course because they practice there. “The home [course] advantage is different in golf than in most sports,” Winstead said. “It is not as much about the home crowd as it is about knowing the course and where to miss shots in order to be successful.” Eight teams will travel to Baton Rouge to play in the tournament. The Tigers will compete against Southeastern Conference opponents Mississippi State and Ole Miss along with local schools like Louisiana-Lafayette, Lamar University and Louisiana Tech. The Tigers are coming off a victory at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate, where they shot even-par over in three rounds at Shoal Creek Country Club in Birmingham, Ala., to win by five strokes. “I thought we played pretty well at Shoal Creek,” Winstead said. “There was some parts [where we]

struggled but the whole team played well in the end to finish strong.” Sophomores Stewart Jolly and Curtis Thompson tied for the individual championship at Shoal Creek with a three-round scores of 6-under. Jolly also led the team at the seasonopening Carpet Capital Collegiate in Georgia. “This course is really tough, but knowing it gives us an advantage this weekend,” Jolly said. “I have had a really good start to the season and hopefully I will just keep getting better and better going forward.” Since the tournament is being played at home, all nine Tigers will play this weekend. The Lady Tigers play in the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic at the University of Georgia Golf Course in Athens, Ga., starting Friday. The tournament will serve as this fall’s NCAA Fall Preview Tournament as the NCAA Championship tournament will be played on the same course in May. The tournament will run through Sunday. “It is a really strong field and a very tough golf course,” LSU coach Karen Bahnsen said. “We just want to play well and learn the course for when we come back in May.” Bahnsen said her lineup will be sophomore Madelene Sagstrom, junior Lindsay Gahm, senior Katrina Hegge, and freshmen Nadine Dreher and Elise Bradley.

The LSU volleyball team circles the .500 drain heading into its home match against South Carolina on Sunday. A grueling early-season stretch has left the Tigers at 6-10 after a five-set home loss to Georgia on Wednesday. “We’re not so much physically tired as we’re mentally tired,” said LSU coach Fran Flory. “When you’re mentally tired, it’s hard to make your body move in the way that it’s capable of moving.” This will be the second time this season that LSU faces off

against the Gamecocks. The Tigers suffered a five-set loss in Columbia, S.C., on Sept. 16. “I know we want that South Carolina match back,” Flory said. “That was a tough match for us on the road and certainly they’re playing with a lot of confidence and were going to have to be prepared.” LSU’s hitting has fallen off in recent weeks, hitting .220 in the past three matches, averaging a little more than 23 hitting errors a game in that span. “We need to watch this [Georgia] game and start refocusing for Sunday,” said senior outside hitter Madie Jones. “We need to work on shot selection and digging those

tips. They got us a lot on tips and roll shots. We’ll be ready” Flory said she has not made a decision on whether injured senior libero Meghan Mannari will return full time after a high ankle sprain earlier in the season moved her to defensive specialist. Usual defensive specialist Sam Delahoussaye filled in for Mannari during her absence; however, the two switched back to their original positions mid-game against Georgia.

SOCCER

LSU returns home for match with Gators Chris Abshire Sports Writer

The LSU-Florida soccer series has almost exclusively made the Tigers into Gator bait. But LSU (5-4-4, 1-3-2 Southeastern Conference) toppled Florida (8-3-1, 5-1 SEC) last season for the first time ever, and now face the No. 16 Gators to begin a crucial weekend at home that could determine the Tigers’ 2012 fate. The Gators enter the LSU Soccer Stadium on Friday with a five-game SEC winning streak that has them tied for second place in the league table. “Florida was one of the favorites to win the SEC, and they’ve done nothing to diminish that status yet,” said LSU coach Brian Lee. “They might be the best team we’ve faced this season.” Florida owns a 12-1-2 alltime record against the Tigers, but LSU eked out a 1-0 win in Gainesville, Fla., in 2011. That road success was rare last season, but it’s been an odd reversal for LSU this season. The Tigers are 2-0-1 on the road in 2012 after a win against Mississippi State and a 2-2 draw versus Georgia last weekend. But home hasn’t been healthy to LSU, as the team compiled a 3-4-3 mark during a 10-game

yards rushing and receiving to his credit and a big goose egg under the ‘passing attempts’ category. So what? What’s important now is that as a senior, Shepard is one of the few contributing members of the team who has been through the rough stretches. “I’ve never been on a losing team here, but I’ve been on teams that went 9-4,” Shepard said. “It makes you a better person when you go through your bad times. It gives you the opportunity to really learn and kind of take more out of the good times.” It doesn’t hurt that he might finally be finding a niche in LSU’s offense, one that’s not dependent on how fluid his routes are or how natural he is catching the football. Last week, Shepard displayed the kind of athleticism the LSU faithful have been expecting since his arrival. Lined up in the backfield with junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger at the LSU 22-yard line, Shepard hesitated, took an inside handoff and found a crease. With a Towson defender in hot pursuit, Shepard punctuated his 78-yard score by sneaking the ball just inside the pylon with a dive from the four-yard line. This is the Russell Shepard you’ve been waiting for. The

homestand last month. LSU won nearly 80 percent of its home games from 2007-11. “We’re trying to dig ourselves out of a hole we made,” Lee said. “Last weekend was really good, and I’m pleased with the effort of our younger players.” The Gators will fire at reigning SEC Defensive Player of the Week in Tiger goalkeeper Megan Kinneman, who saved 23 shots on LSU’s recent road trip. But Florida has a trio of potent midfield goal scorers in Havana Solaun, Holly King and McKenzie Barney. Each has netted four goals this season, and they’ve combined for six assists. Their play is emblematic of Florida’s potent offense, which averages 2.2 goals per game and Lee called “a beautiful style of play.” “They’re a short passing team, so they’ll build [possession] out of the back and will stick to their plan no matter how the run of play goes,” Lee said. “It’s enjoyable to play against and an attractive style to watch.” The match is the annual “Pink Game” to promote breast cancer awareness. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m.

LSU coach Les Miles acknowledged he has been trying to find a way to use Shepard’s natural ability. “I think he, obviously, from the explosive play that he had last Saturday, has some ability there that frankly, we’d love to tap into on a regular basis,” Miles said. Shepard wouldn’t elaborate much on his role, other than to say he is happy when the ball is in his hands. Though he’ll be remembered more for what he did or didn’t do on the football field, Shepard’s most crucial role might be in helping the team realize its potential this season. He has personal experience. “We’re kind of still riding off the hype from last year,” Shepard said. “These last few weeks have been a wake-up call to show us, the young guys and the older guys, that [we’ve] got to learn — learn the hype that [we’ve] have had and that we brought upon ourselves.”

COME TOGETHER, from page 5 Tharold Simon. This season hasn’t been as much fun, Simon explained. He’s sensed a lack of camaraderie both in the locker room and outside of football, which he feels has been a big problem. On the field, Simon finds a lack of enthusiasm. He said the team has not been as motivated as the instances where former Tigers Tyrann Mathieu and Brandon Taylor would hype them up. “We need people to step up,” Simon said. “The whole team needs to step up and lead each other.” LSU coach Les Miles said Monday that Mettenberger, Montgomery and junior safety Eric Reid are vocal leaders for LSU, and have been noticed trying to change the trend. Multiple players mentioned a speech Reid gave prior to Monday’s practice that pumped them up, much like the halftime address during the Tigers’ slugfest with Auburn by Montgomery, who believes the team must be more selfless. “It has not been the focus,” Montgomery said. “It’s just been, ‘Go out there and play my hardest.’ But last year it was, ‘Go out there and play for the man beside you.’” Montgomery said the maturity level of the team, which has been forced to start numerous freshmen early, is also a factor and that it will only come with time.

Dworaczyk has seen many players come and go in his six seasons as a Tiger. Though he said chemistry is affected every year when players graduate to the next phase of their lives, he can relate to his defensive counterpart’s observations. “As the season started, there were some lulling points, as far as in practice and in some of these games,” Dworaczyk said. “... There needs to be more positive energy. There needs to be more guys that are excited about this, man.” Other factors cited were the Tigers playing down to opponents, by Dworaczyk, and the pressure they put on themselves to live up to preseason hype, by Simon. As they face their first ranked opponent of the

season in No. 10 Florida, Dworaczyk said there will be changes moving forward. “It’s a time for us to draw a line in the sand and decide what kind of team we’re going to be,” Dworaczyk said. “I think the leaders of this team are taking it upon themselves to kind of redirect our focus of what team we want to be.” They have no interest in going the way of the Beatles, who split less than a year after “Abbey Road” was released. “We need to come together,” Simon said. “... We know that’s what we have to do.” Contact Alex Cassara at acassara@lsureveille.com; Twitter: @cassaraTDR

Grading the Debate

Wednesday night’s debate saw a fast-footed Mitt Romney face a calm and cool President Barack Obama. While eloquence and calculation may be staples of Obama’s rhetorical style, not managing to keep pace with Romney hurt the president’s reputation at the onset of debate season.

Reverend Louis Farrakhan and the death of a Nation BLUE-EYED DEVIL NICHOLAS PIERCE Columnist As I entered the arena Wednesday night, a phalanx of stony-faced men immediately greeted me, all wearing identical black suits and red bow ties. I was quickly and professionally frisked. My pockets revealed a notepad, a ballpoint pen and a miniscrewdriver. They kept the pen and screwdriver. In 1930, a mysterious and enigmatic man named Wallace D. Fard Muhammad appeared in the slums of Detroit, preaching an eclectic mix of eastern religion, Christianity and black nationalism. Fard’s message of mysticism and black empowerment struck home as America sank into an ever worsening depression and racial discrimination against AfricanAmericans underwent a dramatic uptick. Little is known about Muhammad — who disappeared shortly after the religions founding — but

to members of the Nation of Islam, he is believed to have been a direct manifestation of God. After Fard’s disappearance, his disciple, Elijah Muhammad, took over and grew his ministry from a small cult into a juggernaut of militant black supremacy. At its height, the Nation had millions of followers. It opened black-only businesses and built a multi-million dollar industry out of its message of racial separatism. It incorporated a private security company, the Fruit of Islam, and patrolled black neighborhoods. The current head of the Nation of Islam, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, came to Baton Rouge Wednesday. Farrakhan has been alternatively described as a visionary and an ego-maniacal cultist. He organized the 1995 MillionMan-March in Washington, D.C. in which he and other latter-day civil rights leaders advocated for more unity in the African-American community and called for a reinvigoration of America’s inner-cities. The former chair of the AntiDefamation League once referred to Farrakhan as “the black Adolf Hitler,” after he allegedly referred to

Judaism as a “gutter religion,” and went on to praise the actual Hitler as a strong and forthright leader. And now his personal body guard had my ballpoint and I didn’t know how I was going to take notes. It was an hour before Farrakhan himself took the stage. The pre-show was at times moving, and alternatively downright surreal. A small choir sang a moving rendition of James Weldon Johnson’s “The Black National Anthem,” followed by a Nation rap duo that spit incomprehensible lyrics to songs with choruses like, “Lay down the ham,” and “Do the Farrakhan dance.” All the while, Farrakhan’s red bow ties prowled the aisles and court, joined now by women in paramilitary uniforms with shiny brass buttons and peaked caps. The Nation of Islam first came to national prominence during the Civil Rights Movement. The Nation was typified by Malcolm X and his fiery calls for racial separatism — at the height of Jim Crow and the forced suppression of black rights in the South, the N.O.I. offered a militant alternative to Martin Luther King’s gospel of peaceful resistance.

But then Malcolm X left the Nation and traveled to the holy city of Mecca where he converted to orthodox Islam. When he returned, he preached against the Nation and its black supremacist doctrines — and they murdered him for it. As Farrakhan took the stage, he invoked Malcolm X as a mentor and a friend — an allusion that struck me as disingenuous, as it was Farrakhan’s own brethren who acted as the trigger men in Malcolm’s murder. Farrakhan spoke without notes, telling the crowd of more than a thousand that he preferred to speak off the cuff. And he made some pretty salient points. He spoke about the need to encourage education in the black community, to develop black solidarity and to build black independence through black industry. But interspersed between his bombastic calls for a renewed African-American community were oblique references to the Masons and Shriners, paired with underhanded comments about Jews and racial stereotypes about Asian-Americans.

It took me more than an hour to realize each time he said “The children of slave masters” as in, “and now the children of slave masters have put a robot on Mars,” he was referring to white people. That being said, he rambled with style and I’ve never heard someone utter the words “We live in a white-supremist society” in a more buttery and seductive tone. Ultimately, the sermon missed its mark — it’s no wonder what once was a dynamic American religion has dwindled in membership to only 20,000 to 30,000 adherents. Farrakhan offered no practical solutions to the problems facing contemporary African-Americans. He was fighting old fights, his message was stuck in the past. He called for racial division after decades of reconciliation — it really seemed as though he was preaching from a pulpit on a foreign planet.

Service industry jobs can offer some experience, too these jobs are still widely disrespected. However, working one of these jobs, even if only for a short time, can change your perspective. Any job is going to have its bad days — days spent watching the minute hand chip away until you can finally clock out — but nothing builds character like the soul-crushing monotony of washing dishes for eight hours. I worked as an expo, or a kitchen expediter, in a neighborhood restaurant for two years. For the first six months, I was a go-fer for the manager, running through the kitchen, waiting tables and generally degrading myself, job description be damned. By the time I finally took up my actual position, I had already done the jobs of waiters, busboys, sous chefs and dishwashers. Knowing what they went through on a daily basis, I was more careful not to make their lives any more difficult. Lots of people don’t consider service industry jobs “real jobs”, but there are real people who work them, and the jobs have a lot of life experience to offer. If you think you’re too good to work an awful job, you might find the job you want is too good for you.

BUT HE MEANS WELL GORDON BRILLON Columnist In the past few weeks, I’ve been looking for a part-time job, applying everywhere from Domino’s to Pluckers to my beloved Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s been tough and unsuccessful so far, but that’s to be expected in this job market. That’s not even the discouraging part. When you tell people you’re applying for a job at Taco Bell, their responses can usually be measured in levels of disgust. Some people are good at hiding it, and grimaces will only flash across their faces before they choke out smiles. Others are, well, less subtle. College students often feel that service industry jobs are below them. But terrible, degrading, dehumanizing jobs have an important place in our economy and our national character. The experience you get in a service industry job will be used in every single job you have for the rest of your life. Everyone goes to college because he or she expects to one day get a job in his or her field of study. We go to school because we aren’t born with the skills we need, and we haven’t picked them up in our daily lives. But school can’t teach you everything. There are some things that

can only be learned through experience. And, as the man who first used a fork to get his bagel out of the toaster knows, learning from experience can be painful. Psychology senior Garrett

Holloway works at Bocage Bee & Honey managing stock and sales. He said his job has helped him learn to talk to people. “My job definitely helps with networking,” Holloway said. “I’ve met a lot of people and actually

made a lot of friends.” Holloway is one of many LSU students who works in retail or restaurants and who has seen large personal benefits. The majority of the U.S. workforce is in the service industry, but
