Alutto: ‘It’s been a lot of fun’ Michigan tops OSU, 70-60 The next president

DANIEL BENDTSEN AND LOGAN HICKMAN Senior Lantern reporters and Ohio State Interim President Joseph Alutto has been busy since he took over in July. “It’s been a lot of fun, we’ve hired a new president … It’s been fun to watch that process unfold, getting to know him,” Alutto said. “It’s been great to see the university continuing on the path we set.” Alutto met with editorial staff of The Lantern Tuesday and discussed the twilight of his brief presidency, along with the new president and several other major personnel movements that were announced recently.

Alutto said he’s talked quite a bit with the next OSU president, Michael Drake, about similarities between the University of California Irvine, where he is currently chancellor, and OSU. “I know Michael, we’ve talked and I’ve seen him before at meetings. I certainly know of his university, I’ve been on the campus (University of California Irvine) a number of times,” Alutto said. “Since his appointment, we’ve had a lot of opportunity to interact … my helping him understand the culture of this institution, his helping me understand how he sees the world and understand what he’s accomplished at Irvine, which is really impressive.” OSU officials announced Jan. 30 Drake is set to be the 15th president of OSU, effective June 30. Alutto said Drake’s experience leading a university with a medical center added to his qualifications. “We’ve talked a lot about the fact that we have such a large medical center operation at Ohio State and that it’s really helpful to him having come from a university that also has a medical center, so he understands the dynamics of what an academic medical center means,” Alutto said. “It’s very different than a community hospital in the sense that we have, in addition to the regular obligation of providing medical care to our community, we also have research and teaching obligations … We are very fortunate in the sense that Michael has that sense of what that mix should be.” Drake is set to be the first black president in the university’s 144-year history.

ERIC SEGER Sports editor After slugging through a forgetful January in which they lost five of seven games, the Ohio State Buckeyes came into a showdown with No. 15 Michigan on a three-game winning streak, threatening to get back into the thick of the Big Ten race. They left the Schottenstein Center Tuesday still on the outside looking in on the Big Ten’s best, falling to the Wolverines, 70-60. Led by 15 points from sophomore guard Nik Stauskas, Michigan (18-6, 10-2) came back from an early 10-point deficit to win. “Every loss hurts. Obviously you can’t get comfortable and we found a way to play tough on the road for a couple games and we came home and got one and today we didn’t have it,” senior guard Aaron Craft said after the loss. “We have six games left, so as much as this may hurt, we have to move forward. We have to find a way to continue to get better because nothing’s guaranteed and there’s still a lot to play for.” The Buckeyes (19-6, 6-6) got off to a fast start, as back-to-back dunks by junior forwards Sam Thompson and LaQuinton Ross gave OSU an 11-5 lead with 15:26 left in the first half. Ross had the hot hand early, nailing his first five shots from the field on his way to 13 first half points. After Michigan freshman guard Zak Irvin hit two of three free throws to make the score 21-16 with 7:49 left in the opening half, OSU extended its lead to 10 with an acrobatic layup by junior center Amir Williams and a deep 3-pointer from the wing by senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. Michigan responded, though, using an 8-0 run near the end of the half to stay close. Two free throws from Ross with less than two seconds left gave the Buckeyes a 30-26 lead at the break. After Stauskas nailed a 3-pointer on the first possession of the second half, OSU proceeded to go on a 7-0 run aided by another 3-pointer by Smith Jr. Michigan was able to stay close though, and took a 44-43 lead after two free throws by Stauskas. OSU cut Michigan’s lead to 51-50 following a free throw by Ross, but Michigan gathered an offensive rebound on three straight possessions, helping the Wolverines get back a six point lead. Thompson got another dunk in transition, but with the lead cut to four, Williams missed the front end of a one-and-one with 3:09 to go. Michigan sophomore forward Glenn Robinson III then hit a 3-pointer in the corner to make the score

Bike lanes to line 4th, Summit streets DAN HESSLER Senior Lantern reporter Ohio State students living on 4th and Summit streets could soon see designated biking lanes on their roads. Some students, though, said they’re worried about how safe those lanes will be, and others said they’d rather see bike lanes on campus. The city of Columbus project to install bike lanes on 4th and Summit streets, which is set to begin in spring 2015, is part of a larger set of projects, called the Weinland Park and Milo Grogan Public Infrastructure Improvement Projects, that are set to cost the city nearly $23 million, according to a Columbus Department of Public Service press release. Students who ride their bicycles and live in the area said while they’re hopeful for improved safety as a result of the project, they’re not too optimistic. “It will help with overall biker safety, but it could cause more problems than it might have to,” said Garret Kiger, a fifth-year in mathematics. “Honestly, if we started adding more bike lanes throughout the city it could help, but I’m worried they’ll add the bike lane and it might give a false sense of security to students because drivers aren’t used to having to avoid lanes completely.” Representatives from the Columbus Department of Public Service did not return multiple calls requesting comment. The changes to the roads’ designs are not expected to create any problems for OSU Campus Area Bus Service buses, said Administration and Planning spokeswoman Lindsay Komlanc. “Our CABS bus drivers are currently already trained in terms of navigating a multimodal transportation system (but) if there are specifics of operations that may need to be adjusted to accommodate the new bike lanes, we will work with the city to understand the implementation and make any needed adjustments from there,” Komlanc said in an email. “We do have sharrows on campus and

59-52. Williams then fouled freshman guard Derrick Walton Jr. on a 3-pointer with 1:54 remaining as the shot clock expired, negating the slim hopes the Buckeyes had to get back in the game. Walton Jr. made all three free throws, and a miss on the other end by OSU forced the Buckeyes to foul to stop the clock. But Michigan made eight free throws in final 1:32 to ice the game. “I thought at times we played some pretty good basketball, but we hit that stretch as we did in some of those games in January where we took our foot — I don’t want to say we took our foot off the gas — but we played hard but we weren’t as sharp execution-wise as we needed to be,” OSU coach Thad Matta said after the game.

Ohio representatives are pursuing a bill that would protect underage drinkers who call for medical assistance, a move some believe would help protect the safety of Ohio State students. Ohio Rep. Michael Stinziano, D-Columbus, attended an Undergraduate Student Government meeting Tuesday to talk about House Bill 392, also known as the Good Samaritan bill, which he proposed with Ohio Rep. Cliff Rosenberger, R-Clarksville. The proposed bill would protect underage drinkers who seek emergency medical assistance for others by ensuring that even if those who call for help were drinking underage, they wouldn’t face prosecution. Stinziano said the bill has a long way to go before it becomes a law, but he thinks the law would be beneficial to students in dire situations. “Part of the goal with this legislation is to educate people on the benefits of the law and how it can help impact our community,” Stinziano said. “Opponents can question the integrity of the bill but we must inform people about how the policies can help students from making more bad choices.” Critics of the bill have said it could serve as an excuse for underage college students to break the law without facing punishment. People under the age of 21 are not permitted to buy or consume alcohol in Ohio and face a misdemeanor of the first degree if they violate that law, according to the Ohio Revised Code. A misdemeanor of the first degree can result in up to six months in jail and/or a fine between $500 and $1,000. Hannah Ranowiecki, an Ohio State third-year in political science and psychology, said after the meeting students would use the law for the right reasons. “If this bill passes, it could be a good thing for both campus and our students,” Ranowiecki said. “Students who are under 21 will choose whether or not to take the opportunity to drink, and if they are in a bad situation, then this law could really help them.” Stinziano said the bill has until the end of the year to be voted on, but if it isn’t, the bill would essentially become obsolete and need to be restructured in order to be re-introduced in Ohio’s Congress. Matt Deptola, senior policy adviser for USG and a fourth-year in public affairs, said USG is supporting the bill. “We did a study last spring and found 87 percent of students would utilize a Good Samaritan policy,” Deptola said. “Based on this and other trends we found, we thought it was crucial to do our part to try to see if we could get a more firm policy like this on campus.” Connie Boehm, director of OSU’s Student Wellness Center, said

campus Program on campus aims to give students a safe place to talk QING DAI Lantern reporter Though some international students said they tend to seek support from their friends or family members back home for help if they have problems, a new Ohio State program aims to provide a stateside space for the students to get support. The program, called “Let’s Talk,” was created by OSU’s Counseling and Consultation Services and started this semester, said Shivaun Nafsu, the program’s coordinator. Nafsu said the main purpose of the program is to listen to students’ concerns and provide them with resources to help solve their problems. “They can have the chance to speak to a (counselor), receive support, (immediate) problem solving, resources, so we can help them link with other resources on campus, so that may be helpful for (international students) or also the large community as well,” Nafsu said. “The idea behind the program was how do we (CCS) get out (into the) campus community and (reach) students who do not normally seek services at (CCS).” There were more than 6,000 international students enrolled at Columbus this past fall, out of about 57,500 students enrolled at all levels, according to the student enrollment report. Yunhao Huang, a first-year in financial math from China, said he often looks to home when he needs help. “I usually talk with my friends from high school when I have problems,” Huang said.

Huang said he feels his friends from high school understand his problems better because of their similar cultural backgrounds. Nafsu said, though, the Let’s Talk program provides an opportunity for international students to eliminate the cultural gap. “We recognize that our services (thus) far happened are (under utilized) by international students,” Nafsu said. “So we decided that we really want to do some outreach and make our services more available.” Nafsu said the program is different than OSU’s traditional consulting services. While traditional consultations take 45 to 50 minutes in general, Let’s Talk appointments are more informal and last about 20 to 40 minutes, Nafsu said. Students can come in to the Office of International Affairs in Oxley Hall between 1 to 3 p.m. on Mondays without an appointment to participate in the program. It is open to all currently enrolled OSU students, according to its website. Let’s Talk consultations are also free, with no

limitation on the number of visits a student can make, Nafsu said. According to the Let’s Talk website, the conversations are confidential, outside of situations where there appears to be a threat to the student or others. Hongyin Wang, a first-year in pre-business from China, said the fear of a language barrier prevents her from going to counseling. “Sometimes if American roommates tells a story in their life, I would be a little bit confused, because there are so many daily words for me to listen to, and I focus on my (studies) so much, so academic (words are) much easier for me to understand,” Wang said. Nafsu said language barriers shouldn’t be a problem because the program aims to attend to those concerns. “A part of this program is students (are) going to be (coming) in and telling me what they need in their words. And so we are going to be (attending) to that,” Nafsu said. “My job … is to meet students where they are (at), even if regardless of students coming in and they are (concerned) about the language barrier.” Some international students, though, said they wouldn’t want to go to Let’s Talk. “I do not talk with my friend, so I would not talk with some people I don’t know or some strangers, even though I know they are psychological (professionals),” said Yaoyun Zhang, a first-year in financial math from China.

Bills from 1A at Tuesday’s meeting, students should keep an eye out for each other in times of need. “Over the last 30 years, I have (experienced) a lot of horrible moments with students,” Boehm said. “The common theme here is we are all Buckeyes and should support each other and try to keep students as safe as possible.” Currently, 19 states, including Indiana, Kentucky and Florida, have laws in place that provide limited criminal immunity for the individuals seeking medical assistance for intoxicated friends, according to a release on Stinziano’s website.

He’s slated to make a base salary of $800,000 with additional benefits including $200,000 in deferred compensation each year and to be eligible for up to a 25 percent of his base compensation annual performance award for reaching “mutually agreedupon performance targets and goals.” Alutto said he thinks Drake was chosen based on his merits. “I wasn’t part of the search process in that sense, I don’t know what was discussed, but my guess is the only thing the committee was looking at was the ability to find someone to address the issues that we’ve identified (about this institution),” Alutto said. “I don’t know that (OSU having its first black president) means anything other than that this is an institution where the color of your skin is irrelevant. We’re looking for people who have ability, and we do discriminate … in terms of ability all the time. So the very fact that we have an African-American president just seems to me (to be a) further reaffirmation of that commitment.”

meeting came under public scrutiny. Remarks about Notre Dame and the Southeastern Conference in particular brought national attention. The former two-time OSU president is currently serving as president at West Virginia University, taking an unpaid leave as president emeritus at OSU. Alutto didn’t comment on what he thinks of Gee’s term at WVU. “I think you oughta ask Gordon,” Alutto said. “Gordon is a dynamic individual, he’s always going to have opportunities, he … has incredible energy levels so the notion that he would be looking for another adventure, a new adventure, while at the same time, focusing on, trying to act as a spokesperson for higher education, that’s not a surprise for anyone. But he’s the best source of information on that.” During his time at WVU, Gee is continuing his work on Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s Quality and Value Initiative, a study he is leading to seek ways to improve Ohio’s higher education institutions.

The end of Alutto’s term

A new vice president Alutto said athletic director Gene Smith’s recent appointment to vice president has been a work in progress for a while, and the decision to promote Smith, who also received a nearly 12 percent pay increase and a four-year contract extension, ultimately fell into his hands. “I made that decision,” Alutto said. Alutto’s decision, he said, was in part influenced by Smith’s ability to deliver positive results in areas outside of athletics. Set to report directly to the president, Smith’s base salary is $940,484, effective July 1, 2013, roughly $140,000 more than Drake’s. Smith is slated to be eligible for “standard, university-wide merit based salary increases each year,” according to a Jan. 28 university release. Smith was paid about $840,484 in 2013, according to the Columbus Business First DataCenter. “Gene’s skills go beyond just being an athletic director. He has a background in business, he understands that process, he’s proven himself effective in helping us with initiatives that bring revenue into the institution that help students as well as faculty,” Alutto said. “So the question is simply, ‘What else can we do to integrate him into that function and to take advantage of that?’” Alutto became aware of the consideration of Smith for the promotion during an annual review process for senior administrators, he said. “In one sense, you can make the argument that I’ve been involved in the process since June, obviously Gene’s been here a lot longer than that,” Alutto said. “So (former) President (E. Gordon) Gee was involved prior to that with his evaluations.”

The former president Drake is set to make roughly half of the $1.9 million Gee made before he stepped down as president in July. Gee announced his decision to retire from OSU days after controversial comments he made at a Dec. 5, 2012, OSU Athletic Council

Title from 1A Ross led the way for OSU with a game-high 24 points on 8-17 shooting, while Smith Jr. chipped in 13 of his own. After the game Ross said even though it was a tough loss, he thinks his teammates will be able to bounce back. “We’ve got a tough group of guys. I think

Bikes from 1A an extremely active effort to encourage motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians to share the road.” A sharrow is a shared-lane bicycle marking that includes a bicycle symbol and two white arrows, used to remind drivers that cyclists can use the full lane, Komlanc said. Some students who live off-campus and bike to class said they’d mostly like to see OSU add more bike lanes to campus. “Putting bike lanes around campus would be a great thing because of all of the construction making roads congested,” said CJ Sokolick, a fourth-year in human development and family science. The One Ohio State Framework plan, a long-term planning guide for the physical environment at OSU, calls for the university to make certain changes to campus roads as well, Komlanc said.

Though Alutto served as a transitional figure between presidents, he said he has had the same responsibilities that Gee had and Drake will have. “The understanding I’ve had with the trustees from the very beginning is that there’s no such thing as an interim president, there’s just the president,” he said. “If you look at what we’ve been able to do, it’s all the things that a president would do — some tough decisions. We’ve expanded into some areas and declined to expand into some areas and made some decisions not to go into other areas. We’ve implemented the strategic plan, and ultimately that’s what a president winds up doing.” Alutto said his favorite part of serving as president has been seeing the diversity of OSU’s significance in a way he hadn’t experienced in his role as provost and executive vice president. “Whether serving as a dean or even as a provost, you only see a part of the university. You may see a lot of it, but you only see a part of it,” he said. “When you’re the president, you get involved in a host of things that you never noticed before … It’s very inspiring, and that’s a surprise in the sense that you think that you know that, you think you’ve experienced it, but you haven’t experienced the scope of it until you’ve had an opportunity to sit where the president sits.” Alutto’s presidency is set to end June 30, when Drake takes over, but he said he’s still working out his post-presidential plans. Alutto earns a base salary of $625,000, about $70,000 more than what he made as provost and executive vice president before Gee’s retirement. Before Gee’s retirement July 1, Alutto had been viewed by some as the likely choice to serve as the Columbus City Schools interim superintendent. He said, though, he won’t consider taking any other university presidencies. “I’m a Buckeye,” he said.

everybody’s going to come in when we go back to practice with a different mentality and they know that we’ve got another game,” Ross said. “Guys will be down about it tonight but we’ve gotta look forward. We’ve got six games left in the Big Ten so we’ve gotta be ready for those.” Up next, OSU is slated to travel to Champaign, Ill., Saturday to take on the Fighting Illini. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m.

“(The plan) calls for making our campus as pedestrian friendly as possible,” Komlanc said. “Especially in the core of campus, so our roadway infrastructure functions a bit differently than the city streets that run in the vicinity of campus.” Komlanc said bike lanes are likely not going to be a part of that plan, though, because OSU has such a high volume of vehicles needing to share the road. “It is safer in our case to fully assimilate the bicyclists into the roadway, rather than create an additional conflict point for vehicles and bikes,” she said. Sokolick, though, said he thinks more needs to be done to keep bicyclists safe. “Bikers feel unsafe on the road,” he said. “I would like to see a more bike-friendly environment on campus.”

An open letter to Valentine’s Day from a single girl who’s not bitter:

Oh hey Valentine’s Day, Here you are again. I see you’ve come back faithfully unlike my ex-boyfriend. I see you in the grocery store, manifested in your delicious heart-shaped cookies, bottles of discounted wine and in the banner ad for Tiffany’s atop ESPN’s website homepage. You’ve Kayla byler made yourself unavoidable. However, it seems like you’re all appearances and commercialism, and that’s not really my style. I don’t need a heart-shaped cookie to tell someone I love him. I certainly don’t need someone to send me a dozen roses to be reassured that I won’t die alone. Greeting cards with lots of sparkles and hearts have to be some of the most expensive pieces of paper I’ve ever seen. Spending money to show your affection is what Christmas is for. Furthermore, why should I have to confine my romantic or plutonic love to just one day? I have feelings all 365 days of the year and I enjoy expressing them as I wish in all seasons. So no, I’m not salty because Prince Charming isn’t coming to pick me up at 8 p.m. At the same time, I wish all those loving couples at their tables for two at Olive Garden many happy years together. I’m not trying to overthrow Cupid or anything. I just feel like its 2014 and maybe you need to modernize a little. Love isn’t about that perfect couple on the perfect date anymore. It’s not about having one love that completes you. We should be spending every day of our lives recognizing the multitude of people that we love in any number of ways, showing affection in ways that don’t require spending money on chocolates, flowers or greeting cards.

Students should have freedom in 2nd-year dorm choices design editor

In the 2016-17 school year, scholars students on campus might be wondering: will future scholars students be required to live in scholars residence halls for a second year? Currently, scholars students are assigned to live in dorms with their respective programs during their first year. The residence hall requirement is enforced for a few reasons, according to the Ohio State Honors-Scholars website: to build a strong sense of community, to provide a peer network of successful students with similar interests and to be involved with residence hall directors and governments. madison curtis As a scholars student who resides in the required residence hall for my program, I can say that the required first-year housing has allowed me to meet these goals. I have study buddies right down the hall from me and I know most of the people on my floor, in large part because of classes or scholars program activities. That being said, a mandate that students live in required scholars housing for a second year would be, quite simply, overkill. I would go so far as to say that a second-year scholars housing requirement would actually inhibit students’ abilities to continue exploring interests and expanding social circles. By the time sophomore rolls around, students have had ample time to find their respective niches on campus. Students who have found their social callings should be able to live with the students that they have fallen in step with whether they are from the same program or not. These students would be able to continue building the friendships that were established during first year. Further, it seems cruel to force students who didn’t bond with other students in their programs to continue living in the same environment for multiple years. These students could make use of the second-year housing requirement to get acquainted with different areas of campus and new people so that by junior year, they hopefully have a better idea of where their social paths might lead. All students at OSU deserve the opportunity to discover and bond with people who they enjoy. Those students who found their niches in the scholars residence halls or elsewhere will appreciate the opportunity to live with students from scholars programs or not. And the student out there who is still looking for a niche will appreciate the ability to continue exploring the possibilities on campus.

STEP inspires leadership, friendship for OSU students amanda stefanik For The Lantern I’m almost six months into the program, and I finally figured out my “niche” in the Second-Year Transformational Experience Program, STEP. I am here to share how this experience truly has transformed me. All along this journey, I was so focused on the end goal of completing a thorough project that I was blind to the opportunities STEP presented me in the moment. I was pushing myself over the edge in attempts to create a project that would be a perfect fit for my career, profound to the university and yet another résumé builder. Where was the passion in what I looked to do? I found this project to be more of a hardship than anything, and that is not what the university meant it to be. When I had my “ah-ha” moment, as I later described to my cohort, it was so simple — it was in front of me this entire time. The six pillars of STEP: leadership, study abroad, service-learning, research, internship and creative endeavor, were presented to us students from the get-go, not only to create a project, but to create ourselves in the process. During my time as a STEP participant, without intending to, I have especially been able to pursue the element of leadership. STEP provided me the opportunity to stand before faculty members, my peers and surprisingly enough, myself, and lead in intellectual discussions and pursuance in bettering ourselves as knowledge-craving individuals. Numerous times, I sat down for project discussions with faculty members, which eventually developed into ideas on how to lead both students and faculty of the STEP community in a direction to better the program. Little did I know those discussions slowly became friendship opportunities, and discussions themselves soon became personal conversations.

Junior forward Matt Johnson (26) scrambles for the puck during a game against Penn State Feb. 1 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 5-2. shootout Saturday, and said the team’s attitude in games has really changed from earlier in the season. “I think early in the year, we doubted ourselves at times,” Schilkey said. “But I think sticking to the plan has been important. We have some confidence going and just never give up.” OSU has come from behind in four of the five games of this unbeaten run, a quality Fritz said is required to be successful. “We’re growing up as a team and maturing as a team. We’re really starting to come together,” Fritz said. “There have been a couple games where we’ve found ourselves down in the third period and we’ve found a way to get ourselves back into it, and that’s all that matters during this time of year.” Whatever the case, the Buckeyes seem to be saving their best hockey for the end of the season,

one that has produced a tight Big Ten title race. OSU remains in fourth place in the conference after this weekend’s results, five points behind second-place Wisconsin and only three behind Michigan, who sits third. Minnesota leads the conference with 26 points, four ahead of Wisconsin. Rohlik said the team tries to take its schedule one game at a time, but there is always that recognition of how important each win could be. “We understand where we’re at and we realize how important points are every weekend,” Rohlik said. “So when you look at it one game at a time, it kind of blends together with the big picture.” Next up, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the last team they lost to, the Badgers, Friday and Saturday at the Schottenstein Center. Puck drop is set for 7:05 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday.

At times, the line between winning and losing is miniscule. A single play can be the difference in any given game. For the Ohio State men’s hockey team, that is how it’s been this season. OSU lost 5-3 to then-No. 9 Wisconsin in Madison Jan. 24. It was a game the Buckeyes led at one point, 2-1, but they ultimately gave up three unanswered goals on the way to their third consecutive loss. But since that game, things have been quite different for OSU (14-9-3, 4-5-3). The Buckeyes haven’t lost in their last five games, capped off with two dramatic, come-from-behind shootout victories against Michigan State last weekend. Before that, they swept Penn State at home and beat Wisconsin in the second game in Madison. OSU coach Steve Rohlik said he believes a combination of the lessons learned during those losses and an increase in confidence has made the difference. “It’s the experience of going through those (close) games and then it’s the confidence,” Rohlik said Feb. 10. “It’s the confidence in each other that we can go out there and finish games and find a way to get points. I think that’s been the difference right now.” That confidence was on display Friday when OSU came back from two goals down to tie the game with two seconds left against Michigan State. Junior forward Tanner Fritz scored OSU’s first goal, and he said he sees that comeback as the real spark for the rest of the weekend. “Finding a way to score two goals and earning that point in the shootout (was) just huge for us in the standings,” Fritz said. “We definitely built off that Saturday night with another shootout win.” Freshman forward Nick Schilkey clinched the

With its first game of the season right around the corner, the Ohio State baseball team has some added motivation. Despite posting a 35-23 record in 2013, the Buckeyes missed out on the chance to play in the NCAA Tournament after falling to Nebraska, 5-0, in the Big Ten Tournament May 25. That added incentive has the Buckeyes determined to win games early this season. With all three starting pitchers (Brad Goldberg, Brian King and Jaron Long) in its starting rotation leaving after last season, coach Greg Beals said OSU’s new starters must establish themselves on the mound and take command of games, especially with the Buckeyes set to open the season against Connecticut Friday in Port Charlotte, Fla., as part of the Snowbird Classic. OSU is also scheduled to play a doubleheader Saturday against Auburn and Indiana State, and one more game against Indiana State Sunday. Being part of the Snowbird Classic should help the team grow because of the strong competition and the chance to play outside after a rough winter, Beals said. “It gives us the opportunity to see multiple teams, and this first weekend is a great opportunity to get out and be able to play four games,” Beals said. “We’re going to get to take batting practice out on the field, have a whole hour of practice each day before the

OSU won, 4-1. game, it is going to be really important for us.” Senior pitcher Greg Greve is slated to get the start against Connecticut, with junior pitcher Ryan Riga lined up for the start against Auburn, Beals said. The other two starters pitching against Indiana State have not yet been decided, he added. Junior catcher Aaron Gretz said the end of last season was a reminder to the whole team just how imperative it is to win games early in the year if it has NCAA Tournament aspirations. “The first game last year, if we won that one, we (had) a good shot at making the regional at the end of the year, but we ended up losing in extra innings,” Gretz said, referring to the 6-5 loss to

Mercer in 10 innings Feb. 15, 2013. “One game can be the difference of being in a regional and out of the regional.” Junior pitcher and the team’s closer, Trace Dempsey — who was named preseason second team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and third team by Louisville Slugger — said tournaments like the Snowbird Classic are vital to the success of the team down the stretch. “Our main mission as a team is to represent Ohio State University in the NCAA tournament,” Dempsey said. “In order for us to do that, we have to win ballgames and we have 19 games before Big Ten play even starts, so we need to do really well in these games.” If OSU wants to win games at the

Snowbird Classic, players must commit to the system Beals has created for the team, Dempsey said. “We need to play to our strengths, we’re going to be a pitching and defense team,” Dempsey said. “We’re going to scrap together some runs and get a couple doubles here and there to get some runs across, but if we stay within our identity — which has always been pitching and defense — then I think we’ll be OK.” From what he has seen in practice, Gretz said he expects big things from the new pitchers in the starting rotation. “This year, we’re going to be really good on the mound and defensively, I think just as good or even better than last year in those two aspects,” Gretz said. Whether it is lingering disappointment from last season or a feeling of rejuvenation after seeing how the team has performed in practice, Dempsey said OSU has a dynamic energy about it he hasn’t seen before. “In my three years here under coach Beals, this has definitely been the most elevated intensity we’ve had. He has definitely raised the bar and expectation levels high,” Dempsey said. “My expectations are high (this weekend) — nothing less than four wins.” First pitch against Connecticut Friday is set for 5 p.m., and game time is set for 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday against Auburn and Indiana State, respectively, with the finale of the weekend set for 1 p.m. Sunday against Indiana State.


White has something to prove after missing out on medal in halfpipe MEGHAN WALLIS Lantern reporter

Courtesy of MCT

US snowboarder Shaun White wipes out while attempting to land a trick during the finals of Snowboard Halfpipe during the Sochi Winter Olympics Feb. 11. White failed to medal in the event.

It is fair to call Shaun White the face of snowboarding. The most decorated Winter X Games Athlete in both total medals and gold medals, White had also claimed gold in Snowboarding Halfpipe in Turin 2006 and Vancouver 2010. But in a stunner, White not only missed out on the gold, but he failed to make it to the podium altogether Tuesday in Sochi, Russia. Switzerland’s Iouri “I-Pod” Podladtchikov took home the top honors, while Ayumu Hirano and Taku Hiraoka of Japan snatched silver and bronze, respectively. White’s failure to medal comes days after he surprisingly pulled out of the first-ever Olympic slopestyle event before qualifying, when he decided to “focus solely on trying to bring home the third straight gold medal in halfpipe for Team USA.” White had taken a year to concentrate on slopestyle, hoping to go for double gold. It is speculated that he was worried about picking up an injury during the event, which would have kept him from the halfpipe competition. White and Canadian Mark McMorris both suffered injuries on the Sochi course while practicing two weeks ago. A few of White’s Canadian competitors were none too pleased with his decision to pull out of the event. Max Parrot, who finished fifth in the event Saturday, called White out via Twitter Feb. 5. “Shaun knows he won’t be able to win the slopes, that’s why he pulled

out. He’s scared!” the tweet from Parrot’s personal account @MaxParrot said. The tweet was later deleted. American Sage Kotsenburg took home the gold in slopestyle, Norwegian Ståle Sandbech snagged silver and McMorris won the bronze. Many of the top riders competing this month voiced their concerns with not only the slopestyle course but also with the halfpipe. American Hannah Teter, who won gold on the halfpipe in 2006, suggested that the event be pushed back. “They should push it back is what they should do, and fix it so we can showcase snowboarding the way it needs to be showcased. Not as a junk show, which is what it was looking like right now,” Teter said. White also voiced his disappointment after practice Monday. “It’s hard to get in there and have all the tricks and have everything that you need and not be able to get to the wall,” White said. White failing to even medal is the most surprising result of the Sochi games thus far. He also pulled out of all competition at the X Games in January to concentrate on the Olympic tournament. Tuesday, White earned the highest score of the night in the semifinals with a 95.75, but his highest score on his two final runs was a 90.25, which was only good enough for a fourth place finish. Podladtchikov registered a 94.75, while Hirano received a 93.50 and Hiraoka a 92.25. White is considered the best at his sport, but missing out on a medal on the world’s biggest stage will only make it harder for him to stay at the top. If you want to be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. Now he has something to prove.

Alissa Evans, a second-year in fashion and retail studies, was awarded the $30,000 Geoffrey Beene Scholarship for designing a line of home goods, titled ‘Home Free.’

OSU student awarded for clothes ‘made in America’ MADELINE POEDTKE Lantern reporter Alissa Evans, a second-year in fashion and retail studies, has made social responsibility fashionable. Evans was awarded a $30,000 Geoffrey Beene Scholarship at the annual YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund gala held in New York City Jan. 8 Evans and her fellow competitors were challenged to develop ideas to create their own companies that would incorporate “Made in America” ideals. Evans chose to focus her project on helping victims of domestic violence. Naming her proposed company “Home Free,” Evans said she designed a line of home goods, including products like pillows, duvet covers, draperies, wall décor and rugs, with her overall goal being to employ victims of domestic violence. “My goal (was focused on) giving (victims) jobs and giving them the support, education and the career training that they need to get out of those abusive homes and actually start their own lives,” Evans said. Evans was nominated to participate in the “exclusive competition” by fashion and retail studies professor Nancy Rudd, who said Evans’ compassion is what set her apart from other competitors. “Personally, in all of my teaching, I really emphasize the importance of social responsibility and paying it forward, so Alissa knows that this is a real focus of people in our industry,” Rudd said. “I was really pleased that she decided to include it in her project.” Through conducting extensive research, Evans said she learned that many victims of domestic violence are afraid to leave their homes because they don’t have the means to live on their own. “I want to (offer) victims education and figure out what would be a good career for these people to have so they can become their own breadwinners and support themselves,” Evans said. The scholarship case study project required applicants to delve into extensive details in both the business and design aspects of their companies, Evans said. For her proposed fall 2014 collection, Evans said she studied fashion companies that are “Made in America” and also conducted trend research to get an idea of what colors and styles are set to be popular. “I did a lot of research on how the actual companies are structured and how they market the ‘Made in America’ idea,” Evans said. Evans studied graphic design and began interning at Mead, a producer of school supplies, in June 2009, where she designed prints and patterns for the covers of products like notebooks and folders. “I fell in love with designing those products,” Evans said. “And from there, I realized that it would be really cool to work in other aspects of design like for clothing, textiles or home goods.” Evans said she is thankful for the support she has received from her professors throughout the process of developing her product line. “I remember encouraging Alissa to focus a little more on the specifications for production and I thought that would really make her project stand out,” Rudd said. “It’s one thing to design these pretty things but it’s another thing to actually come up with the production specifications like measurements, materials and how things are produced.” Third-year fashion and retail studies major Heidi Liou also attended the January gala and was awarded one of the Fashion Scholarship Fund’s $5,000 scholarships. Liou said competition is fierce with students from other schools, who have a class dedicated to helping them compile projects to present for the Fashion Scholarship Fund. “We did our projects basically on our own with some help from our professor,” Liou said. After seeing Evans’ finalized project, Rudd said she was proud of her student’s hard work and dedication. “In the end, I was just really amazed by how much she had done,” Rudd said. “I was particularly impressed with the different colors and geometric prints that she had so I thought (the collection) was appealing to several different audiences.”

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian believes innovation and entrepreneurship are keys to making the world “suck less.” In fact, starting early — while attending college — might be the best time to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors. Students are “more free to fail than you’ll ever be in your life,” said Ohanian in an interview with The Lantern Monday. “If pizza in fridge, then content,” Ohanian continued. He said the life responsibilities of college students are not as prevalent, making the creation of startup businesses easier. There is an integral tool the millennial generation has that allows it to disperse messages and create these businesses: the Internet. “The world wide web is flat,” Ohanian said to an audience of Ohio State students and staff gathered at the Mershon Auditorium Monday. “(It’s) the world’s largest stage and library in one.” Ohanian talked Reddit and startups for about an hour and a half in an event sponsored by OSU’s Business Builders Club and Fundable LLC, a Columbusbased crowdfunding platform. The event was split into three segments. The first featured Ohanian speaking by himself to the audience, discussing the ethos of his new book, “Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed.” This was followed by a “fireside chat” between Ohanian and OSU graduate Jason Ross, founder of JackThreads, an online contemporary menswear store. The night concluded with an “AMA (Ask Me Anything)” between Ohanian and Wil Schroter, CEO of Fundable. Ohanian said the most necessary elements to succeed might not be an education, but rather a skillset. “Coding is the most valuable skill of this century,” Ohanian said. Web design also is crucial in today’s marketplace, he said. This was echoed in the segment with Ross, who mentioned that a person’s GPA “does not matter” when it comes to creating businesses and taking advantage of the Internet. “It’s important, but not the end all, be all,” Ross said. Ohanian provided his outlook a few minutes later on the subject of education’s importance. “I’m not saying you guys can fail your classes, but I’m saying you guys can fail your classes,” Ohanian said, following up Ross’ comment. Ohanian’s tongue-in-cheek dialogue with the crowd was ultimately appreciated by attendees. “It was very funny, and it definitely channeled the spirit of Reddit,” said Noah Faust, a second-year in electrical engineering. Faust said he is an aspiring entrepreneur himself as the owner and creator of Conjoynts, a type of wooden building toy he invented. Even though GPA and schooling are important yet not essential, there is a certain character quality that is imperative to achieving success, Ross said.

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian speaks to a crowd at Mershon Auditorium Feb. 10 in an event sponsored by OSU’s Business Builders Club and Fundable LLC. “One of the key things is that you’ve got to do something you’re passionate about,” Ross said, mentioning that men’s fashion was a great interest of his prior to starting JackThreads in 2006. He added that passion was not the only ingredient needed for success. “Smart, educated people are a commodity,” Ross said. “One way you can separate yourself is persistence.” The inclusion of Ross in the presentation was rewarding to some OSU students, such as Alice Hirsh, a second-year in international studies and economics. “I loved the fact that (Ohanian) brought in other entrepreneurs,” Hirsh said. “I didn’t expect (the event) to bring that local perspective. I loved the variety they brought.” Ohanian said entrepreneurs are people that have “ideas and do them.” It is the execution of ideas, however, that makes a good entrepreneur, he said. “Ideas are worthless,” Ohanian said. “Being able to create is where all the value is.”


Shirley Temple remembered for curly hair, infectious performing TESSA DITIRRO Lantern reporter America lost its curly-haired sweetheart, Shirley Temple Black, late Monday evening. Not everyone might realize that the iconic child star was not just an acting, singing and dancing phenomenon, but also a mother, cancer survivor and an important American diplomat. From her skilled tap dancing to her adorable songs about animal crackers and lollipops, Temple was one of the best-known child movie stars of her time and beyond. The little girl was the top box-office star during the Great Depression, earning more money and popularity than Bing Crosby. According to CNN, in 1937 Temple was among the highest paid actresses, earning an unheard of amount of $307,000, which translates to almost $5 million today. Temple began her career at age 3, after being trained by her mother Gertrude Temple, who had dreamed of her daughter becoming a movie star. Gertrude Temple taught Shirley Temple how to sing by serenading her daughter in the baby’s crib. Shirley Temple’s mother enrolled her at the famed Ethel Meglin’s dance school, where Shirley Temple perfected her unbelievable talent for dance and even danced alongside Judy Garland, who was 9 years old at the time and is best known for her roll as Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz.” The little girl with the contagious spirit who spurred fan clubs

and look-a-like dolls made more than 50 movies during her career. As an adult, Shirley Temple was awarded a Kennedy Center Honor in 1998 as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild in 2006. Temple’s fame followed her into early adulthood until she decided to step out of the spotlight and live a normal life. However, her life past her child stardom was just as impressive. At age 17, Shirley Temple married serviceman John Agar, and had her first daughter, Linda Susan Agar. Shirley Temple divorced Agar four years later and married businessman Charles Black. Shirley remained married to Black, and the couple had two children, Charles Alden Black Jr. and Lori Alden Black. After Shirley Temple and her husband moved to Washington, D.C., for his career, she became interested and active in Republican politics. Temple

campaigned for Richard Nixon in 1968 and earned an appointment to the U.S. delegation in the United Nations from 1969 to 1974. In 1972, Shirley Temple bravely battled breast cancer and was open about her cancer with the public. Shirley Temple had a mastectomy that she later spoke and wrote about in women’s magazine, “McCall’s Magazine.” President Gerald R. Ford appointed Temple to become the U.S. ambassador to Ghana in 1974. She found so much success in her political career that she was promoted to the chief of protocol under President George H.W. Bush. In her final political appointment, Shirley Temple served as the U.S. ambassador to Czechoslovakia during Bush’s presidency and the fall of communism in Eastern Europe. After highlighting the numerous impressive facets of Shirley Temple’s life, it is only fitting that she has been a recognized American icon for more than eight decades. Her infectious love of performing, country and her family illuminate her love that lives on today. As Shirley Temple once said, “There is nothing like real love. Nothing.”

Rock on the Range to be ‘grand ol’ time’ MATTHEW LOVETT Asst. arts editor MELISSA PRAX / Lantern reporter

Dannielle Owens-Reid (left) and Kristin Russo of LBGTQ advice website Everyone Is Gay speak to OSU students in an OUAB event Feb. 10.

Gender expression, sexuality discussed in Everyone Is Gay JACOB HOLLAR Lantern reporter They started with negative feedback, and now they’re dealing out advice for all situations. The women behind Everyone Is Gay, a site aimed at improving the lives of LGBTQ youth by providing honest, humorous advice, gave a presentation in the Ohio Union’s Performance Hall Monday. The event, a joint effort by the Ohio Union Activities Board and the Multicultural Center, featured the website’s co-founders, Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid. It wasn’t the first visit to Ohio for Russo and Owens-Reid, but it was their first time at Ohio State — the duo has previously spoken at the University of Toledo and other Ohio schools. “Ohio rules,” Owens-Reid said in an interview with The Lantern. Their show began wordlessly with a choreographed dance routine to “Boom Boom Pow” by The Black Eyed Peas before switching gears to a slideshow presentation that formed the bulk of the event. As the women introduced themselves and took their seats on a pair of stools on stage in the Performance Hall, the screen behind them read “Everyone Is Gay.” “Which we know sounds a little bit ridiculous,” Russo said.

Owens-Reid then recounted her creation of the Tumblr, Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber, and how that inspired Everyone Is Gay. She said she received a lot of feedback on the site — some positive, and some negative. Because of the negative, “Kristin got all bajiggity,” Owens-Reid said. “Bajiggity means angry,” Russo said to clarify. But with the hateful messages came questions about sexuality, stereotypes and other topics. Someone told the two that they should make an advice website, “and so we did,” Owens-Reid said. The two then discussed the creation and evolution of Everyone Is Gay, citing statistics on bullying and suicide as part of why they think it’s important to go out and speak to people. Everyone Is Gay offers a public forum for asking Russo and Owens-Reid questions on any topic. The two respond to questions with a mix of sincerity and goofiness — including lots of lip-synching on their YouTube channel. Monday’s presentation was much the same with several videos of the women lip-synching and humorous anecdotes on anything from Owens-Reid’s time as a Mormon to her Britney Spears memorabilia collection. The event, while focused on the LGBTQ community, was welcoming to those who don’t identify as part of that group.


Despite the name of the website, “we do not think everyone is gay,” Russo said. For those who don’t identify as LGBTQ or who “don’t even have a gay aunt,” Russo said, “first of all, you probably have a gay aunt — just by statistics.” And second, you can still get involved to further goodwill in the community, she said. If one considers everyone as gay, she said, sexuality is not part of the equation anymore. What’s left are people going through universal issues like wanting approval from their parents or falling in love with their best friend, she said. As the presentation wrapped, there was a question-and-answer session with audience members. The questions and answers ranged in topic from religion to gender expression to stereotypes to Hello Kitty. Emily Stout, the dates and data chair of OUAB and the event coordinator, said she thought Owens-Reid and Russo gave a successful presentation. “Speaking for human rights and all individuals is very important,” Stout said in an email. “Helping one another and helping others in need is what is important. That is what this event’s focus was. “The lesson that Kristin and Dannielle taught us is one that we can and will all use in the future,” she said. OUAB and Owens-Reid and Russo declined to comment on how much the event cost and how much Owens-Reid and Russo were paid to appear.

I remember the first Rock on the Range, in 2007, like it was yesterday. Or at least, I can easily recall the time in my life where I would have been out-of-my-mind stoked to go to the Columbus festival, back in the day when I was all about System of a Down and Disturbed. I don’t feel that way much anymore, but as RotR has grown in the last several years, the weekend-long event at Crew Stadium has garnered more classic, old school acts as opposed to the beer rock that makes brain cells jump overboard. Regardless, a weekend festival of whatever kind of music is sure to be a grand ‘ol time, and if I were to nab a $100-plus ticket to the rock bowl May 16-18, these are five bands for which I would go. 1. Avenged Sevenfold “City of Evil” was the s--- when I was cruising the halls of middle school, and it became the reason why I picked up a guitar (on “Guitar Hero,” that is) in the first place. From the songs “Beast and the Harlot” to “Bat Country” to “Seize The Day,” this album was representative of the mainstream, gaudy, “screw-you-mom” metal I craved. Channeling that feeling again in 2014 wouldn’t be troublesome. 2. Mastodon This progressive metal crew from Atlanta might be one of the more refined artists on the RotR lineup. With catchy hooks interwoven with intricate arrangements, Mastodon might very well take the festival away. Every one of its full-length records is a facenumbing and talented testament to rock music that tries a little harder and showcases a bit more capacity on behalf of its musicians. Fingers crossed for Mastodon to play the first song on its first album “Remission:” “Crusher Destroyer.” 3. Suicidal Tendencies Frontman Mike Muir is the only Suicidal Tendencies member who’s been with it for the entire haul. Staying hardcore since the early 1980s, Suicidal Tendencies epitomizes the grating brashness that is anti-authoritarian-themed punk. From “Institutionalized” onward, Suicidal Tendencies has been “sticking it” to whatever entity tells it what to do — an apt artist to soundtrack smashing your beer bottle or crushing your Monster energy can. 4. Rev Theory The only song I know by this band is the theme song to Spike TV’s canceled “Blue Mountain State,” the gross, chauvinistic sitcom that documents the football team’s happening at a fictional college that lives and breathes sports (remind you of anything?). “Hell Yeah” is the name of this song, and it’s best believed that it would be a dreamcome-true to be bombarded with some Rev Theory on a warm spring afternoon.
