Campus forum generates hope for a new definition By DANA FERGUSON email@example.com
In the midst of the Code TEAL campaign, which has flooded campus in teal colored signs as well as a series of statistics pertaining to sexual assault on DePauw’s campus, around 75 students entered the Union Building Ballroom Sunday night eager to be heard. The guided conversation, mediated by Dean for Student Life Dorian Shager, sought to address what the climate is like on campus with respect to sexual assault, why the climate is that way and how to go about changing the climate. The conversation ranged in topic from what the exact definitions of sexual assault and consent are, whether the drinking scene at DePauw causes
a greater presence of sexual assault, and the difficulties for survivors who decide to come forward. Shager said the conversation was a productive one though it did not yield a definite solution. “At times the conversation can be difficult when you’re talking about sexual assault, but I think they did a really great job,” Shager said. Logan Meek, a junior, commented early on in the discussion that many men do not find themselves in situations in which they assault another individual, but they are unaware of how to help those who may become involved in those situations. “My fraternity may be creating this monster and I don’t know what I can be doing to stop that,” Meek said. Bystander intervention techniques were suggested to combat
some of the occurrences in addition to making sure as an individual entering sexual contact with someone else that consent is issued by both parties. An issue that created some debate between many attendees was whether men and women should dress, act or consume alcohol in a certain way in order to protect themselves and others from being sexually assaulted. Many women, including event organizer and Women’s Center Intern J.C. Pankratz, argued that individuals should be able to wear whatever they choose, act however they choose and consume the amount of alcohol they choose while still feeling safe. “When I go to a party, why am I

Student government plans to make over allocations board, assess other goals By ABBY MARGULIS firstname.lastname@example.org
As the school year comes to a close, student government is working to finish putting goals into action and to finalize changes for the upcoming year. Student government met on Sunday evening to discuss the Government Evaluation Committee (GEC) report and to discuss other business. The final GEC report has been produced this semester to implement further changes to improve the student government as a whole. The report focuses on three areas: allocations, student representatives and the executive board. Student body president Charles Pierre said the report has been well executed and that the government has taken another look at the allocations board specifically to make improvements. “We realized we initiated a lot of programs and white papers, but students want to be informed. We are rechecking and addressing the allocations process that wasn’t addressed in the first report,” Pierre said. The allocations board was thoroughly scrutinized and will undergo extensive changes for improvement. The biggest change will affect all new organizations — in order for allocations to better adhere to their budget and avoid running out of funds in the
future, they will be creating a tier system which will rank organizations according to how much money the can receive, based on their funding needs. The goal of the tier system is to avoid clubs asking to be recognized with no intention of needing funds and then later asking for funds, which the allocations board does not have the means to supply. The tier system will force clubs to petition for funds, which the allocations board would then have to approve. Student government also plans to have more open communication between the allocations board and rest of the government to make sure that everyone is on the same page. Finally, the student government plans to make allocations board a more formal operation by implementing a formal training process for all of its members. Aside from discussing proposed changes to the allocations board, student government also discussed their desire to become more open with the student body as to what the are working on in accomplishing. While student government is creating many new goals, this semester they have already accomplished many previously set goals. Within the next two weeks, two of student government’s

DEPAUW COMMUNITY SERVICE CAMPUS GOLF
Students use campus pastime as a way to help community By LEANN BURKE firstname.lastname@example.org
In an effort to unite both the campus and the community and to raise money for DePauw service programs, DePauw Community Service (DCS) hosted a campus golf tournament on Sunday. The plan for the event originated in order to raise money for a few major national DCS organizations — namely, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Best Buddies. “The coordinators of these programs were struggling to raise money,” said DCS sponsor Gigi Fenlon. “I decided we would just have one big event to raise money for all our programs. That way everyone would benefit.” DCS is comprised of several community service organizations that focus on the Greencastle area, including Asbury Towers Senior Friend, Humane Society of Putnam County, St. Andrew’s non-food Pantry and Putnam County Museum. Each program has a program coordinator on DePauw’s campus, and these coordinators have been working along with DCS sponsors Fenlon and Christine Klinger since the end of Winter Term to set up the event. “We wanted to unify the community,” said senior and student coordinator Mandy Russ. “Campus golf does that.” While the event, in it’s first year, has room to grow in success and participation, organizers are pleased with how the event turned out. DCS was the not the only group to benefit from the event. All the money earned will go right back into the community through the service programs that DCS organizes. “I’m really proud of how everyone took their job and ran with it,” Fenlon said. Head student coordination Amanda Brinkman, junior, agreed, stating that they had many volunteers come out for the event. “The money will be put in the DCS account,” Fenlon said. “Program coordinators will then have access to that money for supplies and programming for their organizations.” Golfers could sign up as individuals or in teams of four. A volunteer would then guide golfers around a nine hole course that began at Bowman Park, wound around the Academic Quad and ended back at Bowman Park. Prizes were donated by local businesses, including Dairy Castle, Extreme Tanning, Headly Hardware, Put-
nam Inn and the DePauw Bookstore. “We had $80 in prizes for teams and $65 in prizes for individuals,” Brinkman said. The event included more than campus golf. Visitors could purchase a cookout style meal for $2. Music played all day, with two bands, Jack Daddy Sunrise and Frog Rock, performing in the afternoon. There was also a raffle for a
basket that contained various goodies. This year was the first time DCS organized a campus golf tournament. DCS hopes to make the event an annual fundraiser in future years.
DePauw Community Service hosted a campus golf tournament Sunday April 15. Participants paid an entry fee that went to support all the programs DCS works with. Senior and Student Coordinator of DCS Mandy Russ said that because this was the first year the organization held the tournament they were unable to generate a profit. “Usually, the first time you do an event you basically just break even,” Russ said. “We’d like to do this again and start turning a profit.” ARTWORK BY BOB ALLEN / THE DEPAUW

Why go local? Office of Sustainability fosters discussion, debate By LEANN BURKE email@example.com
This week, the Office for Sustainability is directing attention to the topic through Earth Week 2012. Events kicked off Monday evening with “What’s So Great About Local Food?” — a faculty debate about the pros and cons of local food, an issue more complex than most people might think. “In terms of sustainability, locally grown food is often seen as a very good solution because people can keep it close by, they learn how it’s grown and learn about the environmental effects of their food,” said Alex Lopatka, senior intern at the Office for Sustainability and organizer of the debate. The debate featured Professors Jeff Dunn and Rich Cameron arguing the pros of local food and Professors Jen Everett and Bob Steele arguing the cons. “The challenge is arguing for a position that you don’t entirely agree with,” said Steele, professor and Director of the Prindle Institute for Ethics. “But if we think about the issue as one that is at the intersection of environmental issues, economics, emotions and ethics, then I think we can see a lot competing values.” Cameron began the debate with an economic argument, describing the current system as a
In light of Earth Week’s theme, food and water, Professors Rich Cameron (left) and Jeffrey Dunn (right) debate in favor of the advantages to buying and consuming local food. Cameron and Dunn were joined by Professors Jen Everett and Bob Steele, who debated the disadvantages. EMILY GREEN / THE DEPAUW

“monopsony” — an economic system with very few buyers. Because the economic system is arranged as such, the power lies in the hands of the distributors and lowers the prices farmers can charge, which puts small, family owned farms out of business. He also pointed out that buying locally reduces fuel consumption and transportation use. According to Cameron, smaller farms are better for animals. Everett countered Cameron’s arguments. “I am not arguing that the current system is not flawed or inhumane, but rather that the flaws do not mean we should immediately switch to local food,” Everett said. “There are a lot of factors that matter.” She went on to point out that the current system has dramatically lowered the price of food at a consumer level, and to low income families, that matters. She also pointed out that local food industries cannot support the populations of certain areas. “We would probably have to shift the populations of areas like Arizona or Alaska,” Everett said. “Indiana cannot provide the population with coffee.” Dunn concluded with a point explaining just how realistic relying on local farms actually is. “One-hundred years ago we didn’t have big businesses, so it’s not impossible to live [by only buying local food],” Dunn said. “But, as Professor Steele said, ‘Momentum has moved [society] in another direction.’ Can we go back?”

During Little 5, student government will combine forces with the Union Board to host free food and a DJ between to men’s and women’s races, allowing students to come together to enjoy each others company, fulfilling a hope of the student government. On April 27, there will be an alumni panel giving students the chance to hear from recent DePauw graduates, as a part of student government’s goal to
strengthen connections between current students and alumni. This panel will also serve as a trial run for future ideas to invite alumni to campus to talk with students. Pierre said this panel will give students the chance to start looking ahead to their future. “We are fulfilling this thing that alumni want, but we are also interested in giving juniors, sophomores and freshman the opportunity to plan for their future,” Pierre said. “Things like this don’t come very often and I hope we can capitalize on them.”
WHITE PAPERS TO BE DISCUSSED AND VOTED ON NEXT WEEK: Multicultural Requirements: The goal of this white paper is to require DePauw students to meet a multicultural requirement for graduation credit. The two ideas suggested for how to implement this idea into the DePauw curriculum are: 1) To add it into the first year seminar, requiring first-year students to fulfill the requirement by engaging in a twoweek-long discussion. 2) To host a
series of punch cards events for a particular course, where students would have to attend multicultural events to pass the class.

Senior selected as Indianapolis 500 Festival princess By ALICIA TUTINI firstname.lastname@example.org
DePauw is now home to a different kind of royalty. Rajpreet Heir, senior, was recently selected to be among the 33 girls chosen for the 500 Festival Princess Program. The program, created in 1957, is dedicated to organizing civic events celebrating the Indianapolis 500. Heir, who learned in February that she had been chosen for the Princess Program, was one of 274 girls who applied. After an initial interview, the number was cut to 66, before a second and final interview where the official 33 girls were chosen. “You can’t fully prepare for the interviews,” Heir said. “It was really nervewracking,” The princesses, once chosen, are involved in statewide outreach programs, including visits to hospitals, schools, nursing homes and media outlets, among other events leading up to the race, which takes place on May 27. In order to be chosen as a 500 Festival Princess Program, a girl must be within the ages of 18 and 23, single, a legal resident of Indiana and a full-time student in a fully-accredited Indiana col-
lege. Being involved in the community and the school are not requirements, but are highly encouraged. Heir tried out for the Princess Program last year as well, but she was not selected for the final 33. Heir said she decided to change her approach for this year. “I wore one of my mom’s business suits from the 80’s last year — bad idea,” she said. “Then I didn’t give very extensive answers during the interviews.” She explained that she revamped her look and did her research before trying out again. Thus far, Heir has participated in three community outreach programs, which are required by the program. One of which allowed her to pay a visit to her own elementary school. “It was so awesome to go back,” she said. “I got to see all my old teachers. Reading to the elementary school kids and they would ask me things like, ‘Is your crown real?’ and ‘Do you live in a castle?’” Heir will be attending the Indianapolis 500 for the first time on May 27. She had the opportunity to watch the race last year, but declined because she wanted to attend as a Princess, opting to babysit her small cousins instead.
“It’s amazing to be able to see the race for the first time,” Heir said. “But as a Princess, in a suite, with celebrities.” Friends of Heir said that the 500 Festival Princess Program is a perfect fit for her. “She’s always surprising me,” said sophomore Eleanor Axt. “I’m always fascinated by what she’s going to do next.” On the weekend of the race, the 33 Princesses will be staying in Indianapolis for the duration of their stay. They will participate in the IPL 500 Festival Parade, waving to spectators along the route, along with taking a ceremonial lap around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway immediately before the race begins. Heir said she is ecstatic for this opportunity and that her participation in the 500 Festival Princess Program will encourage other girls to try out for it. “I’m just hoping more girls from DePauw will apply for it,” Heir said. “I’m really happy they picked someone who looks different. Other girls might apply if they see it isn’t just blonde, past-pageant queens who participate.”

Lollapalooza unveils diverse lineup JIM EASTERHOUSE
ubilation. Elation. Rapture. All these words could smoothly sum up my state of being last Wednesday at 1 a.m. when Perry Farrell released the official Lollapalooza lineup. Ferrell’s roll supports an abundance of noteworthy names and upand-coming artists. Needless to say, I am thoroughly impressed from the very top headliners to the bottom feeders of the festival. Starting from the tip-top, I am not too surprised by the headliners. Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys and Jack White aren’t shocking. All have been mainstays in the wide world of rock for a while now. However, the Chili Peppers will sport a different look and feel with Josh Klinghoffer, who replaced John Frusciante as lead guitarist and back-up vocalist. This may damper certain classics like “Snow” and “Scar Tissue” that Frusciante dominated, but will still set up for a memorable Grant Park sighting. Jack White should be the most appreciated addition to the lineup. In total, it will basically be a four-band show. Being the headman of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his own solo album due next week, he will provide a wide array of tunes. Perry Ferrell has always been a sucker for reunited bands. Soundgarden in 2010 and Tool in 2009 both headlined after being on hiatus for multiple years. That is the case this year for Black Sabbath and At the Drive-In. These two acts I am not particularly excited about. Both have not typically floated my music boat in the past, nor have they performed together in years. Black Sabbath is missing two key members over illness and dispute and has reduced their supposed mass reunion tour to a mere 15 dates. At the Drive-In is one of the most influential post-hardcore rock bands, but hasn’t played as a whole since 2001. Band members were very hesitant to reunite, and have declared that this tour is only for nostalgic reasons. That can easily affect their stage presence and how they feed off of each other as their tour drags on. Many fans are getting locked up in the mention of Avicii on the lineup. All in all,
it is understandable. Avicii has mustered up some intriguing hits and has made his way to the main circuit with stride. However, there are many other electronic acts that should be weighed heavily. Kaskade, Neon Indian and SBTRKT are two artists that are continually making their way into the hearts of numerous electronic enthusiasts. Washed Out is known for the theme song of the show “Portlandia” and offers a distinct sound of repetitive upbeat instrumentals throughout other tunes. M83 is known for “Midnight City” and the widespread publicity it has received. However, the album that it is on is a true masterpiece. “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” is a true album that feeds one song off of the other, taking each listener on a journey through multiple themes and facets. If one will take the time to go through it, a number of fantastic tunes will surface. Check out “Ok Pal,” “Intro,” and “Steve McQueen” for further enjoy-

On the indie side, anyone would be sorely mistaken not to take the time to check out Of Monsters and Men. The pride of Iceland makes for a lyrically absorbing and instrumentally enticing sound that has been featured on many big city indie stations. They can be best summed up as if Arcade Fire and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros had a baby. Bowerbirds have some strong songs such as “In Our Talons,” but are in need of one acclaimed hit to rise to popularity. Even so, they have an array of respectable songs to keep them in good contention for a listen. If you couldn’t already tell, Lollapalooza’s lineup is extremely diverse and eye opening. Such a simple list that enables the lineup to compete as possibly the best festival this year. — Easterhouse is a freshman from Evergreen Park, Ill., majoring in communications. email@example.com

AN INSIDE LOOK AT EXCISE
Excise police force diminishes students’ constitutional rights JIMMY KIRKPATRICK
s I interviewed a person that had an encounter with Indiana State Excise Police, I was asked if I was going to “bash” them in this article. Of course, we laughed about this prospect and went on with our interview. That inquiry did, however, present me with a dilemma in writing this piece. It would be easy for my intentions to be misperceived and to come across as someone that champions underage drinking. As a result, I have to make two disclaimers before delving into the important issues associated with excise police. First, I am not arguing in defense of underage drinking, partying or for any reason other than advancing the rights afforded to every American in the United States Constitution. Also, I am not claiming to be an attorney or even an expert on Constitutional law. However, I believe that the Constitution and subsequent jurisprudence is accessible for every American, and that we do not have to be admitted to the Bar to bring authority into question. The Indiana State Excise Police work under the authority of the state of Indiana’s Alcohol and Tobacco Commission and primarily exist to combat underage drinking along with other alcohol-related crimes. They generally use undercover tactics and rely upon “fitting in” to catch individuals “in the act.” The increased surveillance of DePauw comes under the I.C.E. grant which is aimed at decreasing underage drinking on college campuses. According to Excise Lieutenant Kevin Akers, DePauw was chosen directly because of the Princeton Review’s ranking of “party schools.” He said DePauw is the “tall nail that gets the hammer.” Although there is no routine
to the way excise conducts itself, a typical night for the officers includes “foot patrol,” where officers walk around campus to fraternities, bars and parking lots looking for people under age 21 that they believe, with “reasonable suspicion,” to be in possession of alcohol. When students are stopped, they are asked to present their IDs and are then usually sent on their way. In one student’s case, they scanned their IDs because they were out of state. Excise officers routinely seek access to parties in houses or fraternities if, in their judgment, the event is open to the public.
“The police officer must be able to point to specific and articulable facts.” -Earl Warren, Former United States Supreme Court Chief Justice
In seeking entrance, officers are fully authorized to pretend to be a student, lie about their identity and invoke a litany of deceptive practices to “make the bust.” If they have a “reasonable suspicion” that someone at the event is consuming alcohol, they can ask everyone to line up with IDs ready to be temporarily detained by an official apparatus of the state. “It doesn’t take much to lead to a reasonable suspicion,” Akers said. But I disagree with Akers on his interpretation of what a “reasonable suspicion” requires on the part of authorities. I believe that the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and its subsequent interpretation in Terry v. Ohio requires several criteria for a detention or search to be conducted. Namely, in order for an officer to detain someone based on “reasonable suspicion,” the officer cannot simply rely on a hunch. Quoting the majority opinion of
Terry: “the police officer must be able to point to specific and articulable facts...The Fourth Amendment becomes meaningful only when it is assured that...the conduct of those charged with enforcing the laws can be subjected to the more detached, neutral scrutiny of a judge...And, in making that assessment, it is imperative that the facts be judged against an objective standard...Anything less would invite intrusions...on nothing more substantial than inarticulate hunches, a result this Court has consistently refused to sanction.” I believe that excise does not live up to the court’s necessitation that these detentions and subsequent citations must be specific, articulable and able to be analyzed from the neutral position of a judge. Further, Terry literally indicates that while people are walking down the street, they are protected from these detentions. From Terry: “Unquestionably petitioner was entitled to the protection of the Fourth Amendment as he walked down the street.” The standard was held based upon people engaging in actions that directly contributed to signaling their crime (in the actual case, a few guys circled a jewelry store over a dozen times and congregated near a window). I contend that the Terry standard is impossible to apply in the case of underage drinking. I can think of no “specific, articulable facts” that could lead to me believing that someone is below 21 when everyone is within a couple years of each other. Is it facial hair? Clothing? Mannerisms? I contend, unless police work has devolved to unchecked normality, that the targeting only happens because the officers reasonably suspect that we are college students. Their methods also rely upon the assumption that everyone is guilty until proven innocent, a paradigm that our country has consistently rejected in the criminal justice system. — Kirkpatrick is a junior from Overland Park, Kan., majoring in political science. firstname.lastname@example.org

new bookstore to serve as downtown anchor By CHASE HALL email@example.com
“The next great college town.” That’s what DePauw University Administration and Greencastle officials are promising as a result of a major town square renovation that will bring a new bookstore, a community meeting space and Putnam County’s first full-service Starbucks. All made possible by the State of
Indiana’s Stellar Communities Initiative, the bookstore-coffeeshop will be built into the southeast corner of East Washington and Indiana Streets. With an expected Fall 2012 completion date, a lot about the way DePauw students get their books and their coffee could change when they arrive back on campus for the fall semester. But more than that, the project’s organizers hope that it begins a redefinition of current town-gown relationships. “If Stellar has been about finding partnerships, then this is the moment where the partnership becomes real,” said President Brian Casey. “We have “I could not be more a state, a city and a university investing optimistic about the significant resources to future of Greencastle.” help our community reach its potential, and we’re about to start - President Brian Casey seeing the fruits of our
labor.” The 11,000 square foot structure — to be developed by Kite Realty Group — is funded by a development loan from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority facilitated by the Greencastle/ Putnam County Development Center. DePauw has also made a significant investment to the project which, in total, is expected to exceed $2.5 million. The shop will be privately owned. Barnes & Noble, which is currently transitioning out of management of DePauw’s current bookstore on the bottom floor of the Union Building, will be replaced by Follett Higher Education Group. Follett is the nation’s largest operator of college campus and community stores. Like many of the other businesses on DePauw’s campus, students will be able to use their Tiger Express accounts at the Starbucks, according to Vice President of Finance Brad Kelsheimer. Kelsheimer also noted that the coffee house, which will accommodate about 75 seated visitors at a time, will be a place to gather. “I hope students are studying and spending their time there,” Kelsheimer said. “This is an opportunity for another option to create

We need this.” Greencastle’s Stellar Communities Grant Proposal — which was approved by the State of Indiana in March of 2011 — is expected to provide as much as $19 million to support core projects designed to enhance the economic, cultural and residential vitality of Greencastle’s downtown and the “South Court” neighborhood which connects it to DePauw University. The scope of the initiative ranges from streetscape improvements to economic development initiatives and historic preservation efforts, primarily focused on the square and in the surrounding neighborhood. “This was one of the first conversations I had with Sue Murray – revitalization of the square.” Casey said. “This is a substantial investment by DePauw University in the downtown — and I could not be more optimistic about the future of Greencastle.”

Will Starbucks fit in, bring together small community? The impending new bookstore and Starbucks coffee shop, to be located in the town square, are meant to do more than sell fancy coffee drinks. After plenty of research and a hefty Stellar Community Grant, both the DePauw and the Greencastle communities have worked to draw students into the square and to make Greencastle more accessible to students. The idea to use a large business, such as Starbucks, as an anchor store to promote the city’s economy is a smart move, and surely well-researched by the university. The idea is that this large Starbucks and bookstore will bring students out into the community for coffee or potential study spots. And while they’re out in Greencastle they will be drawn to other businesses. Why not grab a coffee while you’re studying and then meet friends for dinner at one of the restaurants on the sqaure. Starbucks — an anchor location to get students out to the square — makes traveling outside of campus more convenient. This tactic is smart. On a campus where a walk to class is rarely over seven minutes, many of us may not think about walking into town. After all, it is easy to contain our whole lives on DePauw’s tiny campus. But, like other small college towns, should not be contained solely on said campus. Not only could this new business enrich our experience, it could improve the economy and town-gown relations. We hope that Starbucks provides more jobs for Greencastle residents. From talk around campus, it’s clear that some in the DePauw community are concerned that a large corporation like Starbucks may negatively affect the small businesses that hold a sentimental place in our hearts. Our hope is that by encouraging more people traffic in downtown Greencastle, Starbucks will actually boost the frequency of customers as these businesses. The university and the community should continue to evaluate the success of Starbucks — and not it’s individual success. If ever the anchor store is not fulfilling its duty — if instead of promoting business it is taking away business — we hope the university and the community will take notice and take immediate action to remedy it. The new Starbucks should be seen as an experiment, not a permanent fixture. But overall, it is heartening to see such immediate change from the Stellar Community Grant taking place in collaboration with DePauw. There is no reason our two “worlds” should stay separated. We all call Greencastle home, even if only for a short while, and interacting in a home base of sorts will bring us together and improve the town in which we live. — Chase Hall did not contribute to this editorial because he wrote the story “Starbucks, new bookstore to serve downtown as anchor.” email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

DePauw makes for a constant home in life of adjustment MAEVE MCDONOUGH The other day when I went to sign and date my housing agreement for next year, I was stunned to learn it was April. I’ve never been too aware of the day of the month (calendars are for people who want to play by the rules), but I’ve usually managed not be completely disoriented. As quickly as it began, this school year is almost over. By now, we all know where we will be living next year, whether it’s a greek house, residence hall or campus owned home. Regardless of where you’ll be or what year you are, each new school year brings change and great adjustment. To quote an old teacher of mine that taught me nothing but this quote, “the only constant is change,” and with each school year we can certainly count on it. The one thing we can rely on, though, is good ole Greencastle, Indiana. With each new year brings a new home, new neighbors and new surroundings. Just as we have settled in, made ourselves at home and finally started liking the techno version of “My Heart Will Go On” that our neighbor blasts three times a
week, it is time to move out again like a common army brat. Although it is normal and expected that a college student moves into a new residence or house each year, are we ever really ready for it? I know that personally, I was not anticipating this year to go by so fast. Soon, all I will have at Humbert is an empty room and stories that end along the lines of, “and then he knocked over the dresser and passed out in the closet.”
“To quote an old teacher of mine that taught me nothing but this quote, ‘the only constant is change,’ and with each school year we can certainly count on it. The one thing we can rely on, though, is good ole Greencastle, Indiana.” So how do we prepare for a new setting each and every year? We certainly cannot go through the year avoiding making new friends and keeping our stuff in boxes. But we can spend more time mentally preparing ourselves for what’s to come. By telling yourself that each year
brings a temporary home and neighbors, you can focus more on making lasting relationships with the people around you, accepting new ideas, and opening your eyes to new ways of living. As far as the transition from a dorm to a greek house goes, I can only go off of Facebook pictures and gossip. But I imagine it can be even more difficult than a residence hall. Unlike a residence hall where you can pick your roommates and surrounding company, a greek house is essentially a lottery. Of course you pick the house because it is right for you and you love the people, but you can’t get along with everyone all the time. It’s important when surrounded by 60-plus girls or boys at all times to make sure you have time to decompress. Take time for yourself to relax and unwind away from everyone. Go somewhere quiet, listen to music, watch Workaholics or google pictures of dogs underwater. It never fails to make me laugh. In the real world setting, a house is a permanent place to count on. Here at DePauw, it may be different each year, but at the end of the day we will always have somewhere to come home to at the end of the day. — McDonough is a freshman from Glen Ellyn, Ill., majoring in communications. firstname.lastname@example.org

Seven stages of graduation grief: A survival guide MOLLY SENDER
ith graduation looming just one month away, a lot of seniors are lost, confused and unable to cope with the grief of leaving DePauw. So, I took it upon myself to outline the steps you’re likely to hit along to way to the receiving of your diploma. 1. Shock and denial Those of us who are still in this state can be easily identified. These are the people who, when someone says the word “graduation,” put their fingers in their ears and stomp like a four-year-old in a candy store, yelling, “I can’t hear you, don’t say the g-word!” This can last anywhere from a couple to weeks to a few months.
2. Pain and guilt As the shock wears off, it is replaced with suffering. You may have guilty feelings or remorse over things you did or didn’t do with your time at DPU. Some are regretting not studying enough for our accounting exams, while others are regretting studying too much and missing time with friends. Some of us wish that we could get back that embarrassing time when we acted like a cat in front of our freshman year crush… Oh, was that just me? Whatever, it’s fine. 3. Anger and bargaining By now, frustration gives way to anger. You may try to bargain with Associate Registrar June Wilder for a chance to stay just one more semester. These bargains usually sound something like, “I will give up Thursday nights at The Duck if you just let me stay here. Please?” But these pleas are lost on deaf ears. They are also bad bargains. Why would you ever give up Thursday nights at The Duck?
4. Depression and reflection You know the depression is setting in when you watch the graduation episodes of: Gilmore Girls, Laguna Beach, Boy Meets World, enter-teen-angst-show-here and sit on your bed alone and weep and sigh. For those of us without jobs or graduate schools lined up, this depression is maximized ten-fold. 5. Happiness and positivity This typically happens upon news of a job offer, graduate school acceptance, the signing of a lease, etc. You begin to see that people have graduated college before and have done so rather successfully. Facebook-creeping of recent grads often follows this realization, looking at recent pictures and saying to yourself, “I could do that.” 6. Reconstruction and working through As you become more functional, your mind will start working again
and you will find yourself seeking realistic solutions to problems posed by life without DePauw. You will start to work on practical and financial problems, and say things like “I’m actually kind of excited to graduate” without feeling like you’re going to throw up. 7. Acceptance and hope Seniors, there’s really only one way to experience this final month — with acceptance. We are going to graduate, we are going to leave the bubble, and we are going to be moving all over the world. Accept this. Then cherish these last moments we have with one another on a campus that has helped us succeed, learn, and excel. Go to everything. See everyone. Reconnect with old friends. Hug President Casey — he was, after all, a freshman with us. We only have one month left. Let’s do it right. — Sender is a senior from Normal, Ill. majoring in music business. email@example.com
Aesthetic improvements cause decline in campus quality NICK NGUYEN
ast week, DePauw students received an email from President Casey, which announced the plans to improve DePauw’s athletic facilities. Even though I am a sophomore and my time at DePauw may be finished when the new Lilly Center opens, I am still very excited. Finally, a concrete plan to improve student life has been implemented. Months ago, as part of the DePauw 2020 plan, the university discussed renovating the campus’s beauty by creating a welcome way directing to East College. It is currently being constructed on Anderson Street. The plan also includes building a newer bigger dining hall where students could supposedly come to eat and share ideas. I am not against the new master plan. But the focus of the plan, in my opinion, is too much on the
cover instead of the quality of the book, so to speak. The highlight of the plan is not to improve our academic environment or professional opportunities for students. Instead, what have been discussed is the new university entrance that leads to East College, and a new bigger dining hall. A bigger dining hall is great, but at the moment a large part of upperclassmen have lunch and dinner at their greek house instead of the Hub. A huge reason for people not to go to the Hub: the food is not as good as The Den, The Duck or any greek house on campus. The food is not bad, but students often get tired of having the same food every week. Instead of building a bigger more beautiful dining hall with (supposedly) the same roster of food, why not spend money to improve the quality and variety of the food? Almost anyone could agree that with the same price we pay, we could get a much better meal at a restaurant outside campus.
Students are excited about the new plan to improve Lilly Center and other athletic facilities because this plan impacts our lives directly. Instead of focusing on how the campus looks, I would really want to see more improvements on what really matters to current students, such as research opportunities, 24/7 study options and residence hall renovation.
“I am not against the new master plan. But the focus of the plan, in my opinion, is too much on the cover instead of the quality of the book.”
Above all, an often overlooked consequence of campus renovation is rising tuition and decreasing financial aid awards. Since my time at DePauw, I have seen a tuition
increase of over $2,000. Room and board has also increased. As DePauw needs the money for the master plan, the cost of education will rise and use less money from endowment will be attributed to financial aid. Current and prospective students will have a huge financial burden, and some may already work 20 hours a week to pay their bills. Also, the education will be less affordable to a lot of prospective students, and it raises the question whether DePauw can keep its level of diversity if certain students can’t afford the tuition price ticket. Making money is hard, but spending money is harder. As the university claims, renovation can help DePauw enter the upper rank of liberal art college. At the same time, however, if done incorrectly, the renovation plan could mark our decline. — Nguyen is a sophomore from Hanoi, Vietnam majoring in computer science. firstname.lastname@example.org
PHOTOPINION Will you go to the new Starbucks location on the square? “Yeah probably, I really like Starbucks. It’s higher quality than the Hub.”
WILL MERRITT, freshman “No, I’m going to protest. I am disappointed in DePauw’s decision not to support small businesses.”
LAILA HOWARD, junior “Yeah, for the coffee and a good place to study.”
CHRIS PANG, freshman “Definitely. I am a Starbucks addict. It’s a great place to study.”

Inclement Weather ruins Saturday game schedule By THE DEPAUW STAFF email@example.com
Both the DePauw baseball team and men and women’s track and field teams were victims of inclement weather on Saturday. On and off thunderstorms led to the cancellation of the baseball team’s Saturday doubleheader against Wabash and the Indiana Div. III track and field meet at Franklin, IN for the track squads. The baseball team will make-up the lost games only if the games are necessary for the Little Giant’s conference schedule. The games would be held over the April 27-28 weekend. The men and women’s track and field teams will return to the regular schedule. Baseball will travel to Case
Western Reserve this weekend and the track teams will travel to Terre Haute, Ind. for the Rose-Hulman Twilight Invitational on Friday night.

Baseball | continued from page16 from Donovan. Motivated by a tough outing in last weekend’s 21-9 win over Ohio Wesleyan University, Donovan threw a game one, seven inning, three-hit shutout in which he struck out twelve Little Giant batters. With confused swings and poor contact, Wabash hitters were baffled by the intricate pitch selection from Donovan who seamlessly switched between an eclectic mix between his high-velocity fastball and accurate change-up. The Little Giant’s one through five hitters went just 1-14 off of Donovan. “I used my off speed well, and I think the biggest thing was that I was getting ahead early in the count,” said Donovan, who is now 2-0 as a starter. “Everything was working and nothing was going wrong.” Confident amid a three-game win streak, DePauw will play Wabash for the makeup games only if it is necessary for the Little Giants’ conference schedule, but that is not likely at this point. DePauw welcomes Case Western Reserve to Walker Field for four games this upcoming weekend.

Back and forth as Tigers lose, win doubleheader By GRANT BARNOW firstname.lastname@example.org
The Tigers returned to the field at the College of Wooster for another NCAC doubleheader on April 14. However, they were only able to total two hits in the doubleheader opener. The lack of offensive productivity lead to a 3-1 loss and freshman pitcher Emily Dieckmann fell to 9-3 for the season. But the Tigers came back strong from their poor earlier performance for a 6-0 win in the nightcap. Though the Tigers were unable to provide run support in the first matchup, the team totaled nine hits — lead by seniors Rachel MacBeth, Jen Kosinski and Holly Paris, who each had two — that would help back junior Emily Bichler’s fifth win of the season, improving
to 5-3 with her third shutout of the season. The 12th ranked Tigers’ weekend continued on Sunday in Granville, Ohio, where the team faced Denison University. The Tigers lost the low-scoring first game of the doubleheader by a score of 1-0 but would return to win in the second game 4-3. The first of the two games was won by a Denison after a go-ahead single in the bottom of the seventh scored the games only run. DePauw was unable to provide any supporting runs to pitcher Dieckmann, who dropped to 9-4 on the season with the loss. DePauw softball head coach Bonnie Skrenta would rally the team in between games and has been pleased with the team has responded to losses. “The team has done a great job of not letting losses get to them
and have done excellent with focusing on the game at hand,” Skrenta said. DePauw would strike first in the second of the two games after a sequence of singles that would score senior Jen Kosinski. The score was quickly evened by Denison and the teams would play tied into the eighth inning. Junior Amy Hallett opened the eighth with a leadoff homerun to give DePauw the lead, but Dension would retie the game in the bottom of the inning. The teams played intro extra innings tied 3-3 when Kosinski drove in senior Cymone Allen – who had advanced to third base after a sacrifice bunt by Hallett – for what was the resulting game winning run. Hallett delivered a star performance for the day – going 4-for-4 at the plate in the second matchup and 6-for-7 in the doubleheader
series. Fellow catcher senior Haley Buchanan also batted well on the day with two hits. Pitcher Dieckmann was impressed with her catcher’s performances, but not surprised. “We work really hard with our catchers, Haley Buchanan and Amy Hallet, [both of whom] push us to be better pitchers,” Dieckmann said. Kahla Nolan was credited with the win after a five-inning relief effort, improving her season record to 6-1. Both pitchers — Nolan and Bichler — each netted four strikeouts in the game. The Tigers are now 20-8 for the season (4-4 in conference) and will enter a two-week stretch with four critical NCAC doubleheader matchups. DePauw starts this string of games at home on April 17 against Wittenberg College.

best teams in the country that don’t win their conference tournament, so there is a purpose being in (the Spring Fling),” Lazar said. “It’s a good field. We know that if we play well, good things are going to happen.” Senior Taylor Beaty was the women’s individual tournament champion with a tournament-best of 152. Senior Kelly Gaughn shot a 159 to tie for third and sophomore Paige Gooch shot a 160 to tie for sixth. For the men, Hulman Links was a chance take another look at a young team — the only upperclassman on the squad is junior Matt Coffin. Ten players golfed at the tournament, five as members of the team and five as individuals. Freshman Brandon Bekkering finished highest for the Tiger’s over the weekend with a 152 score — good enough for a fourth-place finish. Sophomore Graham Singer, who Lazar says is “hitting as well as anyone right now,” explained that the tournament was a good tune-up opportunity for the team heading to the NCAC tournament next weekend. “It wasn’t too big of a field,” Singer said. “And being close to DePauw, we wanted to play everyone and see how everyone is playing right now leading up to conference so (Lazar) can make those decisions. We’ll probably just bring five guys to conference so coach wanted to give everyone the opportunity to prove themselves.” Both men’s and women’s team will travel to Meadville, Penn. for Event I of the NCAC championships on April 21.

Tigers go 3-1 over the weekend, look to conference tournament By COLE HANSON email@example.com
The DePauw men’s tennis team finished with a three and one record over the weekend as they improved to 14-5, despite limited play from some of the team’s top players. The weekend started with play on Friday where they faced both Calvin College (Grand Rapids, Mich.) and Hope College (Holland, Mich.) at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio at the NCACMichigan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Challenge. The Tigers dominated both matches, losing only one game against Calvin. DePauw defeated Calvin 8-1 and topped Hope College 9-0, picking up two more wins the conference challenge. 30th-ranked DePauw sat out many of its top starters for the games against the MIAA including the top two players sophomores Sam Miles and Ben Kopecky.
Junior Noah Swiler did not make the trip and senior Michael Rardon was limited to only doubles matches on the weekends. Freshman Chris Bertolini played number one singles both matches, and also played first doubles against Calvin. The singles play from DePauw was extraordinary, as it won every match in straight sets besides one during the Friday matches. DePauw also won every doubles match except one. The Tigers had one match against Alma College (Alma, Mich.) on Saturday for another NCAC/ Michigan Intercollegiate conference matchup. The Tiger’s again swept another NCAC opponent, with a 5-0 win, with the remaining matches going unfinished. The Tigers swept the doubles and lost only four games in the process and only needed two wins in singles to sweep Alma. Senior Eric Hubbard and Junior David Moss won the two singles matches at the second and third slots to complete the sweep. Hubbard won 6-0, 6-0, and Moss won 6-1, 6-1.
Junior Steven Pjevach was one of the DePauw athletes who benefited from the top players sitting out over the weekend. Pjevach, who was undefeated in singles and doubles play during the trip to Oberlin, was excited for some real match play against solid competition. “Going into the weekend, we knew the teams we were going to be playing weren’t the strongest and we wouldn’t necessarily have to play our best players to win the matches,” Pjevach said. “This was a good opportunity to allow some of the players who travel more to get a weekend off and for some others to rest their injuries. Although the competition wasn’t too tough, it was still nice to get out there and represent the team and get some match time.” After going 3-0 against NCAC opponents, the Tigers had to face their toughest match all season as they would take on the 31st best team in the nation, the Indiana Hoosiers at home on Sunday. DePauw was swept 7-0 by Indiana, dropping it to 14-5 on the season. Even after the sweep, the
team left Bloomington in high spirits. “Being able to play IU on Sunday was a great experience because it isn’t too often that we are able to play such a high caliber team,” Pjevach said. “We showed up and gave them some runs at doubles but they were far superior when it came to singles and we only won five total games.” DePauw was swept in singles, while in all six slots of singles they managed to only win five games. DePauw will return to action Wednesday, as they face Vincennes University (Vincennes, Ind.). The Tigers are now quickly approaching the conference tournament at Kenyon College (Gambier, Ohio) on April 27. The Tigers are looking to finish the regular season strong as it approaches its first ever NCAC conference tournament.

MEN’S AND WOMEN’S GOLF
Third-ranked Women take first, men third By JOSEPH FANELLI firstname.lastname@example.org
The men and women of the DePauw golf teams traveled to different locations in the Midwest this past weekend and saw success at both tournaments. The third-ranked women won the Illinois Wesleyan Spring Fling golf tournament at Ironwood Golf Course in Normal, Ill., with a two-round shot of 634. The men visited nearby Terre Haute, Ind., and had a two-round score of 633 to finish in third place at Hulman Links Golf Course. Sixteenth-ranked Centre College was the tournament champion with a 609 score.

“We’ve played that course a lot over the years. We’ve had a lot of success there,” said Vince Lazar, men’s and women’s head coach. “I think the players know we’ve had success, even if they haven’t been a part of the team that’s played there…We’ve focused on that tournament because it usually brings a very good field of Div. III teams, and this one was no exception.” The win was all more-important for the Tigers as the team will not receive an automatic qualification for the Div. III national championships by simply winning the NCAC tournament — which begins next weekend in Meadville, Penn.

The win for the women marked the team’s first firstplace tournament finish of the 2012 spring season. All the more impressive was who the win came against. Out of the field of 17 teams that participated over the weekend, seven teams — besides DePauw — were ranked in the top 25 nationally in all of Div. III golf, including second-ranked Washington University-St. Louis, fourth-ranked Centre College (Danville, Ken.) and sixth-ranked Wisconsin-Eau Claire University. Washington finished sixth, Centre came in second and Wisconsin-Eau Claire placed third.

Part of the NCAA provisions for automatic qualifications into the national championship from winning a conference tournament is that that conference must have at least seven teams. The NCAC did not have seven teams until the 2011 fall sports season, when DePauw joined the conference. There is a two-year probationary period before the automatic qualification is granted so a national reputation is key for the team to receive an at-large bid in May. “So what we have to do is show that we are one of Golf | cont’d on pg. 14

After a rainout on Saturday, Sunday’s bright blue skies and slight breeze was the perfect environment for two dominating DePauw wins, 6-0 and 10-5, over the Wabash College Little Giants, 13-19 overall, 4-6 in the North Coast Athletic Conference. Clinching the NCAC West Division, the Tigers showed why they are the force to be reckoned with in their new conference. Sporting a record of 27-5 overall and a 12-2 mark in conference, DePauw’s depth is working to their advantage at a critical juncture in the season. “We are hitting our stride,” said sophomore shortstop Zach Starr. “After those two losses at Ohio Wesleyan we really are clicking now. This is the time where we need to start getting hot for the conference tournament. It’s all there right now.” With senior Hobs Donovan on the mound for the first game of Sunday’s twin bill, DePauw’s first batter was a rested Zach
Starr, playing his first game off the disabled list from a seventeen game absence. Starr made a statement. He homered in his first at bat and did so again in the second game for his team-leading fifth and sixth home runs of the season. “I felt a lot better than I thought I would,” Starr said. “I’m just glad to be back with the team. I can’t say I’m upset with how I’m hitting either.” The offense certainly was not just at the top of this potent Tiger lineup. A reliable threat from the middle of the lineup threat, senior third baseman Alex Wright went for a combined 4 for 9 over the weekend including a clutch two run RBI double in game one and a three-run homer in the second game. Senior Sam Swafford also added a threerun home run of his own — his first of the season — to solidify a 6-0 Tiger win. In the sixth inning of the second game, DePauw’s senior first baseman Rob McPike collected his 200th career hit on a bunt single. He is now one of only three players in DePauw history to have achieved reached
the two-century mark. McPike has been one of the most consistent DePauw hitters throughout his career and has been a powerful force in this year’s lineup maintaining a .336 average with 42 total hits. He also is the current alltime leader in RBIs with 126. “It was a cool moment, just knowing that I was third person in DePauw baseball history to have 200 hits,” McPike said. “In the grand scheme of things, there were probably a lot of other players that could have had 300 hits, they just didn’t get a chance at a freshman…I guess you got to be healthy and you got to play all four years.” McPike is now third all-time and, bearing some sort of tragedy, should pass the Matt Deahl ‘06 to take second all time before the end of the season. Deahl currently sits at 202. The pitching was no less impressive, notably marked by the complete game ef-
