Senate resignations allows for new faces Teri Robinson Reporter

Chadron State President Randy Rhine addresses student statistics during an all-campus meeting Friday in the Ballroom of the Student Center.

Rhine ready for new year Although he served as interim president for Chadron State after former CSC President Janie Park retired, newly inagurated President Randy Rhine is still learning the ropes of being a college president. “There’s a lot to learn,” Rhine said during an Aug. 14 interview. “My schedule is full most days, but Pam [Anderson, president secretary] and others help me.” Rhine took office as interim president in May of 2012, then, was inaugurated as the eleventh president of CSC in April 2013. Though his tall features may seem intimidating, his friendly smile and catchphrase, “my door is always open,” has made him well-known with students, as well as community members, and CSC faculty and staff. With a new academic year, Rhine was looking forward to students returning to campus, and getting to know them along with the new faculty. As students return, Rhine hopes to help move the organization forward; making sure everything gets done consistently, and in a manageable manner. “It’s a very time consuming, rewarding job,” Rhine said. “But I’m still learning.”

Three members of Student Senate announced their resignation Monday. Former Chief Justice Reba Jackson, former Vice President Jacob Almanrode and Sara Labor senator-at-large resigned on Monday. Conflicting schedules and views led to these resignations. In a letter to senate, Almanrode stated his academic workload was too heavy to continue. “I can’t do this during this semester,” said Jackson. Her schedule was too busy but clarified she would be available for anyone who had questions. Labor sent her resignation during the summer, therefore absent from the meeting when resignations were announced. After resignations, Nate Jones was nominated for Vice President and Jon Lordino was nominated for Chief Justice with a two-thirds majority vote. Both were voted on, passed and sworn into their new positions on the executive board of senate. In other business Jacob Rissler, senate president, asked senators to get ideas from students for potential renovations to War Memorial Park—the park is located across the street from High Rise. Ideas brought up were redoing the ten-

Downed elevators cause issues for students, campus life Tatum Reuken Distribution Manager One of High Rise’s two elevators has been outof-service since the beginning of the fall semester, due to a power outage that damaged the elevator’s control boards, according to Chadron State College Physical Facilities Coordinator Blair Brennan. Brennan said Wednesday that he did not know the exact cause of the power outage, but that it was most likely due to a snake getting caught in a transformer in the power substation on the far west side of campus. He did not know how quickly the elevator could be returned to service. “We have to wait for a repairman, so it’s nothing in our power,” Brennan said. He added that High Rise’s elevator is one of five elevators on campus currently waiting to be fixed. Until the elevator is repaired, High Rise residents on the first three floors have been ordered to take the stairs and leave the remaining elevator for residents who live on the higher floors.

Dillon Spies, a sophomore residing in High Rise, is one of these students who have been regulated to taking the stairs, but is focusing more on other residents than him. “I feel bad for the people on the higher floors because they are having to change their schedule around this,” Spies said. Resident Advisors must deal with the resident’s complaints, and are also having a hard time with the elevator situation. Apolonia Calleja, third floor RA, said students weren’t really being reasonable about the situation because the High Rise elevators frequently experience problems, and this is nothing new. However, Calleja is concerned for the residents and not necessarily annoyed. She said that students who prefer to stack in the one available elevator rather than taking the stairs are putting other residents at risk, because if too many people get in at the same time, the elevator could malfunction. Calleja empathizes the residents’ frustrations, however, noting that the situation was a hassle for residents on movein week. “It’s been a struggle,” she said.

Take life as a trial


ife is trying sometimes. That sentence contains so much information and seems to convey a simpler thought: to live is to try. “Try” is the root of the word trial, and with that we can see that life is also a trial. The problem with today is that crime dramas and news reports of high-profile court cases leaves us flinching when we hear the word trial. We start to think that life consists of constantly being put on the stand, or as if we are being constantly judged by our success, but life is a different type of trial entirely. Life is more like the free 90 day in-home trial of an electric adjustable futon. Life is a dry run, an infinite series of failures and do-overs. Life is the dress-rehearsal before the opening night. Lastly, life is never permanent. The cowboy is a character that is constantly romanticized, but rarely emulated. The quality that makes the cowboy stick out in our society isn’t his rugged individualism; that narrative has been captured, commodified, and used to sell cigarettes. The definitive quality you ought to admire about a cowboy is the amount of “try” he has. Trying is the key to a cowboy’s life. No one judges a cowboy by what he knows, because he doesn’t always know what he’s doing. But no good cowboy claims to know everything. He’s content with the fact that he learns more with each try. A cowboy won’t be able to predict what will happen from day to day. He will try to plan ahead, but he knows that plans always change by the hour. It’s frustrating, but there’s really no alternative but to keep trying. He could stomp, spit and throw his hat, but that doesn’t change the fact that he still has work to do. And as a student you can take a lot from a cowboy’s attitude. You might think that what you learn here will be the end all, but it’s just one of many trials in your life. So even if life can be trying, you just have to try life back. There’s little value of being frustrated with a problem, and more to be gained from trying to fix it. All you can really do is try.

No time for MyCSC redesign


magine your first week of classes. The first day, you wander around, vaguely lost, but by the end of the week, you know the pathways to get to your classes, the turns and the hallways, and where the nearest bathroom is. Now imagine if your teacher changed classrooms and buildings the very next week, without any sort of warning. This is the feeling I got the first time I logged onto MyCSC this summer. It was as though I walked into an empty classroom with nothing but a note pinned to the board “We’ve changed, good luck figuring out where we are.” Now, I didn’t much like MyCSC to begin with, let’s be honest, it’s never been extremely “user-friendly.” However, at least it was usable. The new format, however, is nothing but a carwreck. When I first opened MyCSC, it was to find my Financial Aid. I was pretty excited to see that there was a link on the very first page that said “Financial Aid.” However, click any of these links, and rather than bringing you where you “It is so much want to go, they bring you to tutorials. Upon later inmore important spection I noticed that there that our website is a very small note that says “Below is a list of tutorials that be user-friendly provide step-by-step instructhan look nice. tions on how to use the portal.” That’s considerate. You -Sara Labor know what’s more considerate? Not needing tutorials on how to use a website. Skip ahead to when I figured out that this was not the correct link. When you click on Student Dashboard, it goes to the enrollment page. Here you can find your schedule, but not a nice printable version. (I have yet to find that.) Here, however, I did find a tab that opened up financial aid. However, when you open this tab, there are no links to accept


Sara Labor Lifestyles Editor financial aid. Instead, the link to accept financial aid is squished off to the side in the sidebar. When you finally open it, you have four pages to go through before getting to the page where literally all you have to do is check a pretty little box. Of course, this is majorly different from the old Student Dashboard. The old student dashboard had your school schedule, academics, enroll/drop, a link to accepting financial aid, and a visible to-do list all in one convenient spot. Now, with the new MyCSC I had absolutely no idea I still had things on my to-do list until the last possible minute. This is because it is buried in the sidebar. It’s there, but it’s certainly not easy to find. Finally, I was able to figure out my to-do list, accept my financial aid, and somehow put together my schedule. However, I felt like I had to jump through more hoops than a circus worker. What is with that? Stuff like signing up for classes, filling out financial aid, and simply looking at your school schedule shouldn’t be so difficult. It is so much more important that our website be user-friendly than look nice. It seems as though those who run MyCSC have forgotten that the most important purpose of this website is to help students. Instead, it’s making students’ lives harder.


we asked: “How are you adapting to college life?”






“Not very good.”

“Pretty well. Chadron’s made it pretty easy. If I have questions I can ask just about anyone.”

“I’m adapting really well beside the fact that people think I’m weird.”

“A lot better now that I have friends.”

“I’m adapting. I’ve met a lot of new people.”

Flyers for various activities fill the club notices board in the Student Center on Wednesday. Religious clubs on campus use these boards to attract new members.

Keep your religion to yourself


t’s a new year here at Chadron State College. For some, that means new friends, new challenges, and new opportunities. For others, the nuances of being at college are already running like clockwork. For the newcomers among us, a major part of this new college experience is finding different groups to be a part of. Flyers will soon adorn every hallway and bulletin board campus-wide with promises of fun outdoor trips, rigorous fitness activities, and resume-building work experiences. This is all business as usual. Soon enough, these flyers will also be joined by others with little more than cryptic, bold text such as “ALIVE” or “BELIEVE.” These are typically flyers trying to get you to come check out a youth group or one of the religious clubs here on campus. If you’re interested, great. Go check it out. However, when you do, bear one thing in mind: your beliefs are just that, yours. If you want to share them with like-minded individuals, that’s fine. However, to most others, parading them around will be little more than an annoyance. There’s no doubt about it, the people running these clubs and organizations are working hard to make people feel wanted. But the rigorous advertising for these youth groups can feel pretty pushy. In the past, flyers for Chi Alpha, Revive, etc. have relied heavily on back-handed promises of self-improvement. Want to feel okay about yourself? Go to youth group! Want to meet others like you? Go to youth group! The message is intended to be positive, but instead sounds more like an exclusion. According to the posters, being in means you are inherently a good person. Being out means you’re a lost soul. To those who will jump and cry “foul” at this, recall that in the past, Chi Alpha has had shirts with the text “Are you a part of the clan?” printed on the back. Tell me, does that sound like an invitation to some safe haven? In most cases, honesty is indeed the best policy. Don’t shy

Jeff McFarland Columnist away from saying you’re an atheist or a Christian, but don’t say any more without the permission from the listener. Once, during my sophomore year, my friends and I were eating dinner in the pit when we were approached by two men with a stack of photographs. They asked us if we’d like to talk, and when we agreed, they had us associate images with certain words: “life” was a guitar, “freedom” was an open ocean, etc. I was genuinely interested in where this was leading, until the words “religion” and “spirituality” came up. These two were here to recruit us into a church, and they had been shady about their intentions. If you’re going to talk about religion, be forthright. If you do try to talk to a person about something as touchy as spirituality, please be mature about it and keep an open mind. “Atheist” is not code for “babykiller,” and “Muslim” is not code for “terrorist.” If worse comes to worse, agree to disagree. Just because you have a right to your belief, doesn’t mean you need to exercise your right to share it.

Ashley Swanson News Editor Hundreds of students, new and returning, along with parents, siblings, and friends covered Chadron State’s campus Thursday through Sunday, as students began the task of moving into the dorms for New Student Orientation. A bright sunrise greeted students and visitors as the unloading began. Suitcases, boxes, and, in some cases, couches, stacked around vehicles while people moved in and out of the buildings. Though this was nothing new to returning students, having to unload numerous items, along with filling out forms, and finding their room was a new experience for incoming freshman. Furthermore, moving wasn’t the only activity keeping students on their feet over the weekend. Many events occupied the students’ hours to keep them informed and entertained until classes began.

Groups of students dance to a country song during the dance party outside of Kent Hall Sunday night.

Although most of Thursday and Friday was move-in day, Thursday also featured a picnic under the grand tent. Grilled hamburgers and sweet desserts gave students and their families a welcomed break from unpacking. Students were able to get knee deep in who-is-who at the information fair Friday in the newly renovated King Library. Students and their families not only saw some of the clubs on campus, but also interacted with people from different departments, as well as some members of the community. Friday also offered a chance for students to cool down and dive into the sand with a “Backyard Beach Party.” The party was complete with a slip ‘n slide, sand volleyball, a hula dancing competition, hula hoop competition, and a dance. Laughter emanated from the slip ‘n slide as large groups of men pushed themselves down the slippery slope, only to collide with one another at the grassy finish. Men were not the only ones to enjoy themselves; however, it wasn’t long after when a large group of women hit the

slopes, also colliding with each other at the bottom. Different music styles could be heard Sunday night, as the weekend ended with a dance party in the “backyard” of Kent Hall, High Rise, and Andrews Hall. About 150 students, mostly freshman, filled the cement area directly next to the south door of Kent, and danced the night away. As they do every year, classes began before students could blink, causing the sidewalks to be filled once again. Hallways and classrooms no longer sat quietly in dimmed light, as shuffled feet and friendly chattering bounced off the walls. A pool party at the city pool Monday pulled in about 100 students. The diving board proved most popular, as students displayed tricks for others, as well as trying their luck at catching a Frisbee before breaking the water’s surface. Whether a returning student or an incoming freshman, CSC has kept up with activities for NSO and W.O.W, and the events are just getting started.



Change paces cross country team’s goals

AUG. 22, 2013 | The Eagle |

Eagles’ scrimmage set for Saturday

Jordyn Hulinsky Reporter As the cross country team gets ready to start a new season, the runners will notice a few changes from previous years. The team has a new distance coach this year, in the form of Coach Brian Medigovich. Medigovich came to Chadron State via Head Coach Ryan Baily who convinced Medigovich to make the move. Medigovich, who competed his entire college career at Adams State College, Alamosa, Colo., where he graduated in 2010, has been running cross country for about 15 years. He earned the title of All-American 13 times and captured one National Championship. After graduating from college he coached at Adams State and at a community college in California, he said. Medigovich, who’s competed in RMAC meets in Chadron, said he has always liked small towns. Baily said he’s glad to have him. “I’m extremely excited about Coach Medigovich guiding our distance runners this year,” Baily said, “and I’m very impressed with the condition of our newcomers and the returning athletes. It should be a good year.” Along those same lines Medigovich made a few comments about the team’s upcoming season, which opens Sept. 6 on the road at South Dakota School of Mines, Rapid City. Medigovich said he I’m very impressed with the and Baily hope the team condition of our newcomers and moves up this season to the mid-pack of the the returning athletes. It should RMAC, and added that the conference is among be a good year. the toughest. He said – Coach Ryan Baily the men’s and women’s teams will face conference opponents packed with good talent. Medigovich said he hopes to be somewhere along the fourth or fifth spots in the conference rankings. Medigovich said Ashley Riesen, senior of Chadron, is one of the runners from the women’s team to keep an eye on. She is a fifth-year competitor and is motivated to do well, he said. Other returning athletes from the women’s team should be watched carefully as well, he said, adding that there are several talented freshman who have the potential to finish among the top seven on the team and earn a spot on the travel squad. On the men’s side, Medigovich said he and the coaches have been impressed with sophomore Doug Harris. He said Harris has assumed a leadership role this year and has done a great job. This season both teams have undergone big changes from previous years and the coaches are expecting them to compete better, and perhaps generate individual national qualifiers. Medigovich also noted that coaching will be different. Training will see the distance runners logging higher mileage than what they might remember from the past, he said. After the season opener in Rapid City, the team’s next meet is home, beginning at 9 a.m. Sept. 14. The following week, the team travels to Lincoln for the Woody Greeno Invite. The season’s first few meets are usually training sessions for important competitions later in the year, Medigovich said. The Oct. 5 Chile Pepper Invite in Fayetteville, Ark., opens the “October Season” – a time when runners begin competing in championship meets. Placing in those meets, Medigovich said, is the main goal of any team or individual. The RMAC Championships are Oct. 26 in Silver City, N.M.; the NCAA South Central Region Championships are slated for Nov. 9 at Canyon, Texas; and the NCAA D-II National Championship are set for Nov. 23, in Spokane, Wash.

Experience, youth and talent fuel 2013 volleyball team DeCent had a different view about her role. “I want to leave an impact of hard work and dedication. I want myself and the team to have the expectations of winning and knowing we can win when we are down and we will do that by using what we learn in practice in the game,” she said. The team opens its season Sept. 6 at the University of Nebraska-Kearney Tournament. In the first round the Eagles face the Jets of Newman University, Wichita, Kan., at 4 p.m. Sept. 6. Later that day, the Eagles square off against Nebraska–Kearney at 8 p.m. Game three they face South Dakota School of Mines, Rapid City, at 10 a.m. Sept. 7. The Eagles close the tourney against William Jewell College, Liberty, Mo., at 2 p.m. Sept. 7.

Byron McLaughlin Reporter Coming into the 2013 season, Coach Janel Baily and the Chadron State College volleyball team return six players from last year’s roster and nine new recruits this year. Leading the way are seniors Jessica Jester of Cheyenne, Wyo., and Barbie DeCent of Paxton. Entering her fourth straight year Jester brings an abundance of experience and is the lone returning middle blocker from last season. “She is a player who has seen significant playing time over the years and she brings a lot to the team for us, especially with her being the only returning blocker from last year’s team,” Bailey said Tuesday. DeCent, a red shirt last year due to issues about credits transferring from Mid Plains Community College, North Platte, joins Jester to lead the team. Even though DeCent sat one year, Baily believes she will have a major impact this coming season. “Last season, DeCent could’ve been a key contributor, but now that we do have her, we hope to see her be a key factor this year, especially at the outside hitter position,” Baily said. DeCent and Jester lead the way on the senior front, and in Baily’s eyes, the upcoming team has talent, youth, and experience. “Practices have been going great, the atmosphere in the gym is competitive and that has been leading to hard work which comes along with great energy,” Baily said, “I am very excited at where we



are at right now compared to this time last year.” Of the nine newcomers, four are junior college transfers, the remaining five are freshmen. “With the nine newcomers and the six returners, the team looks pretty talented this year and right now, if I needed to put a starting line up together, it would be pretty tough because that is just how talented we are this year,” Baily said. Jester and DeCent said they both look to leave a mark with the returnees and the newcomers. “I want to leave an impact of positive encouragement and being patient, especially when it comes to learning the system, and with those keys, I know the team can be successful this year,” Jester said.

Sports brief—Women’s basketball tryouts The Chadron State College Women’s Basketball Team will be hosting their sixth annual open try-outs starting at 6 p.m., Tuesday in the Armstrong Gymnasium. Interested students will need to bring proof of a recent physical in order to participate. Head Coach Tim Connealy said that in the last five years, the tryouts have netted three students who later went on to play for the team. For more information, please contact 432-6339 or 430-0636.

Fall brings changes to more than just weather Justy Bullington Columnist First and foremost, I want to welcome back all my returning readers. I hope your summer was filled with Uggs and shorts. To my new readers: you weren’t supposed to understand that last sentence. Please don’t feel bad, I’ll include you in my sarcastic comments from here on out. With that being said, to those of you that don’t know me and/or the nature of this column, I’ll break it down in two sentences: This column is a way for me to write about things going on in my life and make them non-specific enough to the point where you can relate to them. Thus, by suggesting intellectual thoughts to my readers, they tend to stray away from checking me into a mental hospital and instead focus on how their “reader voice” just made them eat a tub of ice cream and watch “P.S. I Love You” while crying on the couch. It’s a beautiful thing. An even more beautiful thing is the change from summer to fall. For those of you that just rolled your eyes at that last sentence I bring this next point to your attention: football pants. Feel free to tell me I’m right at any time throughout the day. Another upside to fall? Clothes that fit normal sized people are back, not to mention clothes that don’t require you to shave your legs every three hours. To that, I say Amen. With each start of the fall semester there are multiple changes for each student. No

matter the age or grade there are certain things that are hard to face. Whether it’s saying goodbye to the home you’ve known for 18 years, or facing the transfer or graduation of good friends, learning to adjust is a process. Just like the first day you realize you need a jacket instead of flip-flops or even worse - snow boots instead of tanning lotion, we as people, are constantly undergoing change. Some changes are for the better, some are for the worst. However, the most important thing is not how long you can avoid change, but instead how well you learn to adjust to that change and who you are when you come out of the situation. Being able to fall is easy; learning how to get back up is what builds character. My advice to the freshman: make mistakes. If you can honestly say you didn’t make a single mistake your freshman year of college, I advise you to get out from under the rock you’ve been living under and go run a marathon in brand new Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes (returning readers, that was for you). That, my friend, is a mistake your parents won’t have to find out about at two in the morning. However, once a mistake is made learn from it. Grow from it. You wouldn’t wear flip flops in a snow storm more than once, would you?! If you would, then your opinion doesn’t matter to me, or anyone else for that matter. To my fellow peers, I wish you the best this school year. I wish you more positive changes than negative ones, and most of all I wish for a win over Pueblo. Make this fall the biggest rise of life.
