OSU apps from Drake to make about half of Gee’s annual payout home-schooled students rising KRISTEN MITCHELL Editor-in-chief email@example.com
BRANDON MERRIMAN Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Home-schooled students could soon become more common at Ohio State with applications on the rise. In a statement from the Office of Enrollment Services, emailed to The Lantern by OSU spokeswoman Amy Murray, said the number of homeschooled student applications has risen significantly over the last several years. “For Autumn 2013, we received 78 applications, which was an increase from the previous year of 45,” Murray said in an email. There usually are only a “handful” of applications from home-schooled students, who follow the same admissions process as other applicants, Murray said. According to a Fall Semester 2013 newsletter from OSU Undergraduate Admissions, OSU saw a nearly 25 percent increase in undergraduate applications overall for Fall Semester 2013 compared to the previous year. The increase in home-schooled student applications for the same span was proportionally higher, about a 73 percent increase. Home schooling is on the rise in the United States, according to a study from the National Home Education Research Institute published in 2011. It estimated that while the number of school-aged children in the United States increased by 2.11 percent from 2007 to 2010, the home-schooled population during that time grew by about 7 percent. As for academic performance, home-schooled students perform “just as well” as others in their class, Murray said. The Office of Enrollment Services, however, did not provide exact academic statistics. Stephen Gavazzi, dean and director of OSU-Mansfield, said in an email that family involvement in general is “a huge predictor of academic success.” “Home schooling obviously includes significant

Ohio State’s next president, Dr. Michael Drake, is set to be paid an annual base salary of $800,000, but that is only part of a multifaceted compensation package that also includes research funding, housing and an automobile stipend. Drake’s deal does not match the money doled out to former President E. Gordon Gee, but is more than the amount being paid to Interim President Joseph Alutto as well as the new appointed leader of the University of Michigan. According to Drake’s contract with OSU, he will also earn an annual credit of $200,00 under a deferred compensation agreement. During his agreed upon five-year term, Drake is also slated to be eligible for up to a 25 percent of his base compensation annual performance award for reaching “mutually agreed-upon performance targets and goals.” An optometrist by trade, Drake has been granted tenure in the OSU College of Medicine, Department of Ophthalmology and the College of Education and Human Ecology, however during his time as president, he will not receive any tenured employment compensation or be expected to perform “substantial” faculty duties. Drake’s contract also says he will be provided with laboratory space in the College of Medicine and research funds up to $50,000 per year for as long as he is president, a term set to start June 30. OSU made the announcement of its 15th president at a Board of Trustees meeting Thursday, where Drake was introduced for the first time before members of the OSU community. “I am deeply honored by your nomination and your confidence you display in me,” Drake said. “The presidency of the Ohio State University is in many ways the premier position in higher education in the United States. This university is outstanding but its also a university that’s clearly on the move.” Drake said OSU was “bold in its intention to inspire greatness in its faculty, its staff and its students” in his first speech as appointed president. “The trajectory of Ohio State and the power of Ohio State are admired throughout the world of higher education,” he said. Drake has served as the chancellor of University of California Irvine since 2005. Drake made an annual salary of $401,115 in that role, Ria Carlson, associate

OSU officials announced that day Drake is appointed to be the next OSU president. vice chancellor for strategic communications at UC Irvine, said in a Thursday email. Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp, a fourth-year in public affairs, said OSU’s goal was to find a “dynamic leader with the right tools.” “He was very successful for UC Irvine, and in order to attract top talent, we have to be competitive with our compensation,” Stepp said. “He certainly has the talent and the ability to fundraise and the skill set to afford that kind of compensation structure.” Stepp was a member of the Presidential Search Advisory Subcommittee, but was not involved in contract negotiations, he said. Drake is set to make roughly half of Gee’s $1.9
million before Gee 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 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 has a base salary of $625,000, about $70,000 more than what he made as provost and executive vice president before Gee’s retirement.

Newly promoted OSU Vice President and current athletic director Gene Smith in an interview with The Lantern Jan. 29.
ERIC SEGER Sports editor firstname.lastname@example.org Regardless of the sport, individual or team, if Ohio State wins a national championship, Gene Smith gets some additional coins in his pocket. The newly announced vice president and current athletic director’s new contract — which is set to expire June 30, 2020 — could see him earn nearly $1.5 million per year with additional bonuses, according to a copy of Smith’s contract obtained by The Lantern. His previous contract rewarded him with a base salary of about $840,484, according to the Columbus Business First DataCenter. In an interview with The Lantern Jan. 29, Smith said he expected the increase in base salary, but did not know what the exact figures would be. “There was a conversation about where I fall nationally with other athletic directors and that’s the great place about here, they compensate you consistent with expectations, consistent with the market and that’s one of the beauties of Ohio State,” Smith said. “So I expected something but didn’t know what it ultimately would be until (OSU Interim President) Joe (Alutto) told me.” In comparison, recently appointed university president Dr. Michael Drake is set to make a base salary of $800,000, with deferred compensation of $200,000 and eligibility for a performance award of up to 25 percent of his base compensation each year, plus other perks.

A smartphone app allows users to report litter and smokers on Ohio State’s campus, but some staff and students said the app could take a while to help make the area cleaner. OSU began an enforced campus-wide tobacco ban Jan. 1 on all tobacco products including cigarettes, tobacco chew, snuff and e-cigarettes. The free app, CleanerU, was developed by a faculty member of OSU’s College of Public Health. It gives users the option of choosing whether their campus is clean or “can be cleaner,” then uploading a photo and noting whether there is an active smoker in the area, as well as what kind of litter is around. The location of where the picture was taken is automatically attached and placed on a map all users can browse. Jonathan Nutt, assistant director and policy coordinator of OSU’s Student Wellness Center, said the main goal of the app is to build a healthier and more clean campus environment. “(It’s) not just about tobacco smoke but litter or anything … like spray paint or any kind of other (issues) that might be on campus,” Nutt said in an interview with The Lantern Jan. 16. Dr. Peter Shields, deputy director of the Wexner Medical Center James Comprehensive Cancer Center, said in an interview with The Lantern Jan. 16, though, photos of people, including smokers, aren’t supposed to be uploaded. Some staff members said the app might help raise awareness of the tobacco ban. Miroljub Ruzic, a subject specialist for East European and Slavic studies, religious studies and history of Christianity and modern Greek, said the app’s visual aid mechanism could boost awareness. “People will become more conscious where they see (trash), and the feature of the photo attachment will show that the litter is actually there,” Ruzic said. Some students agreed. Erica Iles, a fifth-year in biology, said the app could help cut down on littering in general. “Students at OSU want to take care of their campus and have it look nice, so I think the app will be useful for places … where there seems to be more garbage,” Iles said. Other students are more skeptical about the app having a noticeable effect. Hannah Gibbs, a first-year in neuroscience, said the app is a good idea, but might take some time to start having an impact. “I just don’t know if people will actually avoid the parts of campus that are considered unclean according to the app, but hopefully with time they will,” Gibbs said.

Shields said the app is meant to guide OSU officials in the right direction when looking at how to make campus cleaner. “We’re not gonna run to that spot, we’re going be tracking how many reports we get over there and then figure out how to deal with it. If it’s students (smoking or littering) we’ll deal with it, if it’s faculty or staff then we’ll deal with it,” Shields said. OSU is spending money on preventative efforts in the meantime — it has spent about $43,000 of its $100,000 tobacco ban signage budget to make sure when visitors come to campus, they remember to put out their cigarettes. Signs have been placed outside several university buildings, including the Ohio Union, and banners have been hung in parking garages. The money used comes from “benefit funds,” not a single department, and is administered on behalf of OSU by the Office of Human Resources, according to OSU spokesman Gary Lewis. The campus-wide ban was announced in 2013, and was set to take effect Aug. 1. In August, however, university officials said the ban would not be enforced until 2014. Shields said cleanup efforts won’t substantially change for now, but OSU staff will continue adapting to whatever efforts are necessary. “I think that we end up responding to whatever needs (there are) … Hopefully over time we’re gonna see less butts,” Shields said.

Fisher aims to ‘go beyond’ expectations with campaign Emily Hitchcock Lantern reporter email@example.com Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business has launched a new slogan and an accompanying brand campaign that cost more than $20,000, but some students said it might not have been a worthy investment. The brand was created to provide an identity for the college that would evoke stories of Fisher students, alumni, faculty and staff going above and beyond what was expected of them, Chris Poon, dean of the Fisher College of Business at OSU, said Friday. There was a launch party for the new brand, or slogan, was Jan. 22. The slogan has been placed places such as elevators and staircases to promote the new brand. The new brand was picked out of four brand campaigns designed by Fisher graduate and undergraduate students, Poon said. The only aspect of the project not handled by students and faculty was promotional advertising done by local advertising company CivitasNow, Poon said. She said costs for the company’s services were the only costs of the project. Ann Hamilton, executive director of marketing and communication at Fisher College of Business, said the cost for CivitasNow’s services came to approximately $21,000. “We never bid out the job to outside companies to see the cost, but in my own experience branding other products while working in a firm, I don’t think that anything like this project would be undertaken for less than a quarter million to a million dollars,” Poon said. “I think our decision to turn to our students and faculty very much expresses our commitment to experiential learning, to learn by actually doing something.” Poon is planning to step down from her role as dean, but is set to remain at the helm of the college until December 2014 if necessary as OSU searches for a replacement. Naveen Sharma, third-year in accounting, said the college might need to rebuild its brand awareness after the new campaign. “I don’t think it’s such a great investment when you already have such an iconic brand that Fisher presents,” Sharma said. “Doing an overhaul may distort the image that consumers and potential students already get from Fisher.” Jared Gates, a second-year in industrial design, said a rebrand does not necessarily mean a company or organization is turning into something completely different, but it can call attention to changes they want to highlight. “Brand is all about the image of the company. Some people will rebrand if they’ve overhauled their company and they want to create a new image, and say, ‘Hey, we’ve done something different.’ Or if they want to attract new people or extinguish an old reputation, or maybe just to say, ‘Hey, we’ve modernized,’” Gates said.

Sole OSU gay fraternity looks for diversity in members Andrew Todd-Smith Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org The only gay fraternity at Ohio State is looking to add diversity to its membership. Sigma Phi Beta Fraternity Inc., a gay and allied fraternity, has nine active brothers at OSU, pending orientation of its next pledge class. President Maxi Henn — a fourth-year in psychology and member of the first pledge class — has been involved with the organization from the start. Henn serves on the executive board of OSU LGBT Athletes, and said it was during one of the group’s meetings two years ago that the idea for a gay fraternity was introduced. David Achille, a former graduate student who Henn said has remained close with Sigma Phi Beta brothers after leaving OSU, said he originally brought up the idea, and Henn said it was when then that the group found Sigma Phi Beta. “When (Achille) pitched that idea, we got very excited about it. We did some research … and we stumbled upon Sigma Phi Beta,” Henn said. Sigma Phi Beta has two active chapters at Arizona State and Indiana universities, as well as a colony at Middle Tennessee State University. Henn said trying to recruit individuals for a group with such a narrow cross section of interests continues to be challenging. “Currently, our membership is all gay men. Our focus nationally may be a little bit more towards the LGBT community, as far as events and service we do,” Henn said. “For a lot of
straight guys, that may not be what they’re interested in. Having some more diversity is something that we push for and we would love some allied brothers.” Alexander Sanchez, a third-year in theatre and a member of Sigma Phi Beta’s Gamma pledge class, said the process of finding a fraternity that was right for him was fortunately easy. Sanchez said he began his collegiate career at OSU-Lima and had always wanted to end up in Columbus. When the time was right and that opportunity presented itself, he went looking to see if he could find a group to get involved with to make the change a little more manageable. “With me and some of our other brothers, we are transfer students. So a lot of our friends, we left at our old schools. I came here to the city of Columbus all by myself. (I was) searching that group of people I could call my brothers and my family,” Sanchez said. Sanchez represents Sigma Phi Beta formally as a delegate on the Multicultural Greek Council. Patricia Castillo, president of MCGC, said Sanchez and the men of Sigma Phi Beta have been a welcome addition to the council. “They give a great, wonderful image for the gay and allied community on campus,” Castillo said. “They’ve always been very professional, very motivated, dedicated but also very fun. They’re a great bunch of people to be around in our community.” Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs said the fraternity has “been warmly welcomed by the rest of the Greek community.” “They are a strong, functional colony in compliance with our standards of excellence.

They’re doing a really good job of recruiting men who are living the values of their organization,” Isaacs said. Isaacs added that Student Life is “very pleased with their efforts and very pleased that they offer another opportunity for our already diverse community to become even more diverse.” Henn said he would like for Sigma Phi Beta to participate in the Columbus Pride Festival and Parade in June. “One of my fondest memories of being in the
fraternity was when we marched in Columbus Pride last summer,” Henn said. “I hope we go forward and organize that again in the future because that was a great experience and a great way to advertise ourselves.” Henn said, ultimately, part of Sigma Phi Beta’s mission is “to provide a uniquely diverse safe space for people like us. And I that think we’ve accomplished that by building a new community at Ohio State within Greek life.”
Site seeks to help students find study abroad housing Muyao Shen Lantern reporter email@example.com Though an Ohio State student co-founded a website that has helped about 80 students find housing for their study abroad trips, so far no OSU students have enlisted the website’s help. To Brett Newman, a fourth-year in strategic communication, his experience studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain, meant more than just improving his foreign language skills. After Newman and friends heard other students complaining about the housing while studying abroad, Newman and his partner, Ryan Blum, a fourth-year student at Syracuse University, decided to create Study Abroad Apartments, a website that provides students more options for housing to meet any “specialized need,” Newman said. “What I mean by specialized, we offer the opportunity for you to meet with other students in the same building. We offer accommodations so we kind of tailor their process of living,” Newman said. “We pick them from the airport and take them tour around the area and explaining things, explaining Barcelona, explaining you know, where they should go (to the) grocery store, where to get supplies. We take them out for a dinner, like a traditional Spanish dinner.” Newman said since the pair started Study Abroad Apartments in May 2013, they have served about 80 students from 18 different universities who have studied in Barcelona. “We have a lot of students from Indiana University. We have a lot of students from University of Maryland (and) University of Michigan. We have students from University (of) Illinois, Arizona, all

Newman got the idea while studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain. over,” Newman said. “Which is interesting, though, that with these 80 students, not one is from Ohio State.” Newman said he and his partner check the credibilities of the companies they work with overseas to try to ensure the apartments are secure. Jeannie Simmons, senior study abroad manager in the OSU Office of International Affairs, said most of the study abroad programs offered through OSU already cover housing for students. “Really (there are) only very few (situations) when students (are) in the position to find their own housing,” Simmons said.
In the 2011-12 academic year, more than 283,000 U.S. students studied abroad for academic credit, representing about 1 percent of all U.S. higher education students, according to the NAFA: Association of International Educators. Cody Mcnulcy, a fourth-year in French, who had an internship in France said he thinks Study Abroad Apartments could be “very useful.” “I (initially) searched apartments’ (rental) websites … But I couldn’t find (anything) so I used a service there to (find) a host family,” Mcnulcy said. Newman said the website plans to begin offering services in London this year.

Smith from 1A sport participant,” which works out to more than $18,000. There is a cap placed on these achievements, and Smith’s supplemental compensations cannot exceed $120,000. The sports that stipulation applies to include wrestling, cross country, track, diving, swimming, fencing, golf, gymnastics, synchronized swimming, tennis and the co-ed sports of rifle and pistol. But the additional compensation doesn’t stop there, as Smith’s contract lines him up for a fourweek base salary bonus (more than $72,000) for numerous athletic achievements. Among these include: a top ranking in the Sears Director’s Cup final ranking, the Buckeye football team competing in any BCS Bowl Game (or similar Division I bowl game of similar magnitude if the BCS ceases to exist), the OSU men’s and women’s basketball teams making a Final Four appearance and if the football team finishes a school year with a cumulative grade point average of 3.3. A cap is in place on these additional compensations as well, as GPA-related bonuses for academic achievements cannot exceed $60,000 in any contract year and the others cannot exceed $120,000. Smith is not the highest paid athletic director in the Big Ten, however. That title belongs to Wisconsin’s Barry Alvarez, who made a base salary of about $1.14 million in 2013, with potential bonuses giving him a maximum figure of $1.23 million, according to the 2013 USA TODAY athletic directors’ salaries database. Comparably, Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon made a base salary of $900,000 with potential bonuses of $200,000 in 2013, according to the database. Vanderbilt’s David Williams was the country’s highest paid athletic director last year, earning nearly $3.24 million, according to the database. Williams also serves as vice chancellor of university affairs, is a law professor and has served as university general counsel at Vanderbilt. Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp, a fourth-year in public affairs, said Smith deserves his level of compensation because of his work with university athletics. “Frankly we just have to pay him top dollar, because that’s what we’re paying for, we’re paying

for excellence and that’s what Gene Smith is bringing to the table for us,” Stepp said. OSU’s two major revenue athletic programs serve Smith with the largest additional stipends. On top of the additional payout for earning a trip to a BCS game or a Final Four, Smith is set to receive another two weeks’ base salary (more than $36,00) if either the men’s basketball team or football team brings home the national championship. If either team finishes a year with a GPA above 3.5, Smith earns another five weeks’ base salary (more than $90,000). Additionally, if the cumulative GPA for every other OSU team — aside from football and men’s basketball — achieves an average GPA of 3.5 or greater, Smith earns another five weeks’ base salary. The additional compensation for all “Exceptional Academic Achievements” cannot exceed $60,000, according to the contract. For any team that is awarded the title of Big Ten Conference Champions, Co-Champions or Tournament Champions, Smith is slated to receive an additional two weeks’ salary. The extra compensation for this part of his contract also has a cap, as it can’t exceed a maximum of $120,000 in any one contract year. On top of all the additional athletic compensation, OSU is slated to pay Smith another $200,000 for his “leadership and representation in media promotions and public relations.” If Smith remains employed as the vice president and athletic director at OSU until June 30, 2020, he will receive what the contract calls a “2020 Longevity Bonus” of annual payments of more than $60,000 a year. Smith also receives a stipend of $1,200 per month toward two automobiles, and the school is set to pay for his wife to attend away athletic contests, provided the travel costs do not exceed $5,000 in any contract year. While serving as athletic director, Smith is given a full membership to a local country club, and full membership at the University Faculty Club. He is also set to fly by private aircraft for “business purposes only,” up to 15 hours per contract year. SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS
At the Thursday Board of Trustees meeting where the presidential announcement was made, Presidential Search Committee chairman Jeffrey Wadsworth cited Drake’s athletic experience as a reason why he would be a good fit for OSU. “Athletics is important,” Wadsworth said. “He’s a member, one of 18, of the NCAA Board of Directors.” The NCAA Board of Directors is the governing body for intercollegiate athletics. Days before Drake was announced as the next OSU president, athletic director Gene Smith was named a vice president and given a nearly 12 percent pay increase and a four-year contract extension. Set to report directly to the president, Smith’s base salary is to be $940,484, roughly $140,000 more than Drake’s, effective July 1, 2013. 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, $40,000 more than Drake’s starting base salary. Stepp said because the Department of Athletics is self-funded, it’s hard to compare it to the university as a whole. “It’s always interesting to compare the financial structure of the main university and athletics. Obviously, it’s a very different world over there,” he said. Stepp said Smith does a “fabulous job” and the prominence of OSU athletics warrants his compensation.
“Frankly, we just have to pay him top dollar, because that’s what we’re paying for, we’re paying for excellence and that’s what Gene Smith is bringing to the table for us,” Stepp said. While OSU was searching for its next president, the University of Michigan was doing the same. Michigan announced Jan. 24 its next president would be Dr. Mark S. Schlissel, who currently serves as provost at Brown University. Schlissel is set to succeed Mary Sue Coleman, who is stepping down after 12 years in the position. Schlissel is set to start his five-year term July 1, and is slated to make a base salary of $750,000, which is subject to annual increase at the discretion of Michigan’s Board of Regents, and a retention incentive of $100,000 per year awarded at the end of his term, Michigan spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said. Schlissel is set to receive “regular university benefits” and a $20,000 per year contribution to retirement plan. He will be given housing in the president’s house, an expense allowance and the use of an automobile and driver, Fitzgerald said. Drake is also set to receive an automobile stipend of $1,200 per month and will be expected to live at the OSU presidential residence in Bexley. While Drake won’t officially start at OSU for roughly five months, he said Thursday he is excited to get started. “I am deeply humbled by this opportunity and am looking forward very much to joining the Buckeye family,” Drake said.
Applications from home-schooled students on the rise

Home-schoolers from 1A family involvement in the education process,” Gavazzi said. Family involvement, however, is one of the few things that is present nearly across the board in home schooling. The rest varies from student to student. Chris Lovekin, a fourth-year in plant health management, was home-schooled through high school in what he considered a semi-traditional manner. “I was expected to take more initiative and be more self-motivated, but I would still have work assigned to me and I just had to have it done by some point,” Lovekin said. Bri Simmons, a third-year in English education, was also home-schooled, but had a different experience. “I did some of my school online, and I was privately tutored through most of it,” Simmons said. She also took college courses through Columbus State Community College at the end of her high school career. “I was already pretty used to how college works … so Ohio State really wasn’t an adjustment at all,” Simmons said. Lovekin attended Cincinnati State Technical and Community College for his first two years of college, and said he felt better off for it. “If I had not gone to a two-year institution, I think I would have been swamped with the expected workload,” Lovekin said.
= 78 Autumn 2013 home-schooled applicants MADISON CURTIS / Design editor Lovekin said he had seen others in his home schooling community struggle with the transition to college. “The (home-schooled) people I have seen who try to go (directly) to a four-year institution have suffered setbacks, and it’s really stuff as simple as understanding … attendance,” Lovekin said. “So, it’s a training ground. “I truly do believe you could come straight into a four-year institution, and if you were in the traditional home-schooler sect … with a set schedule every day, you could be successful.” But Lovekin said there is a different common problem with that kind of home-schooled student. “A lot of the kids in that situation are academically well-prepared … but socially they may not be as developed,” Lovekin said. Simmons said she had joined an abundance of local programs she had access to in high school. “I was super social all throughout high school. I did every possible club, team, extracurricular,” Simmons said. “I love people (and) large classroom settings.” Simmons said now, even though she’s ahead, she isn’t ready to leave OSU. “I’m only 19, but I could graduate next spring (in 2015) if I wanted to. I’m actually thinking about drawing out my … senior year so I can have more time,” Simmons said. “But I’m also super geeky, and I love school.”

Taylor, director of client experience and owner of CivitasNow. “This is our area of expertise, so it makes sense that they brought an outside source for the promotion so things would go seamlessly,” Taylor said. “However, OSU held our hand the entire way, making sure everyone stayed up to date with what was going on.” Poon said she hopes the new brand will speak to undergraduate students and inspire them to expand their knowledge of other cultures. “From the Oval to the globe, go beyond,” Poon said.
studentvoice College rankings meaningless when it comes to finding home DESIGN editor
I remember last April when the time came to pay my acceptance fee to a university where I would spend the next four years of my life. It was a scary feeling — a $100 fee would determine which university campus I would learn like the back of my hand, for which establishment I would eventually shell out upwards of $30,000 a year for my education and which alma mater I would identify with for the rest of my life. Every day I spend here at Ohio MADISON CURTIS State, I am more confident I made email@example.com the right decision by paying my $100 acceptance fee to this university. And for that, I am lucky. While I am almost always deliriously happy with my life here at OSU, it’s hard not to look at other students from my senior class of high school that are overwhelmingly unhappy with life away from our hometown. At least four of my close high school colleagues have already returned home — a semester at the school they previously thought would be home for four years was enough time for them to realize that school wasn’t the right fit. I read friends’ complaints about the schools they attend on Facebook, and while I sympathize with the concerns of my friends, I can’t help but wonder if the problem lies in my friends’ choices in what schools they chose to attend. I chose OSU completely unmotivated by its U.S. News and World Report “Best Colleges” ranking. When I was deciding which school to attend in fall 2013, I didn’t even know what place OSU held in the rankings. And that has made all the difference for me. It was rough to listen to friends, who, even in January of our senior year, would tell others that they were going to attend “the highest ranked
university” to which they were accepted. Regardless of where these campuses were located or what benefits they had to offer students, some of my friends did indeed attend “the highest ranked university” to which they were accepted. The correlation is pretty striking; many of my former classmates that selected colleges based on this thoughtless “ranking” method are unhappy at their respective schools. Some of my high school colleagues have already returned home — a semester at the schools they thought were right because of rankings was enough time for them to realize that the schools weren’t a perfect fit. Rankings overall are a very black and white way to define a university. They’re probably the most quantitative way to survey the array of universities in the U.S., but the problem with rankings is that they offer nothing about universities’ different personalities. The personality of OSU is exactly what led me to choose this school over other schools to which I applied. I was raised as a Buckeye. My dad is a 1988 graduate. Photos of a 4-year-old me in an OSU cheerleader uniform are littered around my house. My family is known for the chocolate-peanut butter buckeye candies we send to neighbors and friends at Christmastime. Now that I’m here, it’s the little things about OSU that leave me sure I chose the right university for me. It’s the vending machine of school supplies in William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library and the way my dad tries to hide his excitement when he visits campus and points out the hotdog cart in front of University Hall where he used to buy hotdogs between classes 30 years ago. No ranking could ever describe how stupidly happy I get when I purchase a glue stick out of a vending machine or how proud I feel to continue the Buckeye tradition in my family. I am now aware that OSU is ranked No. 52 in the U.S. News and World Report ranking of national universities. But OSU is so much more than its ranking. This university is a part of me just as much as I am a part of it — and it’s a part of me that I’m proud of every day.
How US News ranks the best colleges 1. Schools are separated based on mission: research or liberal arts. A cumulative ranking of all schools exists without using this distinction. 2. Data is gathered and schools are ranked in 16 areas related to academic excellence.
3. Colleges are ranked based on their composite scores from the 16 areas. souce: www.usnews.com

OSU bathroom graffiti disrespectful to people, property SAM HARRINGTON Senior Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Self-expression has intrinsic value because it allows for creativity and individuality, however, not all expressiveness is equal. Forms that are crass, hurtful and altogether loathsome, like some restroom graffiti, are not worthy of one’s expressive potential. At Ohio State, certain restroom stalls are rampant with this kind of vandalism. In the worst cases, a hodgepodge of sexually inappropriate and xenophobic writings and drawings cover the
stall. Just as wallpaper decorates, these scribbles degrade. Some might argue restroom graffiti is one of the most pure forms of expression because it is unfiltered. But even if a piece of graffiti is relatively mild in tone and substance, in effect, it serves the same function as harsh graffiti — the defacement of a restroom. Although this graffiti might be done in an expressive or creative manner, it is still inappropriate because it disrespects both people and property. While OSU acknowledges that the defacement of a restroom stall is unbecoming for its students, if it does not include the destruction of property, is
not necessarily against the OSU’s Code of Student Conduct. Often an act of defacement falls under the authority of the Office of Student Life’s Bias Assessment and Response Team. Even if the wrongdoer is not caught, restroom graffiti does not go without consequences. If during its daily inspection, a restroom stall is found to have particularly derogatory graffiti, efforts will be made to remove it. “Any graffiti of an offensive nature is removed immediately upon discovery,” said Lindsay Komlanc, spokeswoman for OSU Administration and Planning in an email Jan. 21. “Every effort is made to respond to cases of graffiti in an efficient manner.”
Restroom graffiti is nothing if not disruptive. By its very presence, it forces others to observe it and work to remove it. Offensive graffiti is contrary to the essence of this university, which is why OSU work crews put in considerable effort to ensure that facilities are “clean, safe, professional and conducive to supporting teaching, learning and research,” Komlanc said. If people understand public space is not their personal property and that self-expression must be balanced with respect for others, restroom graffiti could decrease. However, in the meantime, OSU will continue to have to clean up the mess made by some of its most immature students.

Columbus named a ‘secret foodie city’ by ‘Forbes’ Travel
SHELBY LUM / Photo editor
Rigsby’s Kitchen, located at 698 N. High St., was mentioned in ‘Forbes’ Travel Guide’s article ‘Five Secret Foodie Cities.’
SHAY TROTTER Senior Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org For Ohio State students with a passion for food, Columbus might just be the perfect city. Columbus was recognized for its eating establishments in “Forbes” Travel Guide’s “Five Secret Foodie Cities,” an article that also highlighted Minneapolis, Little Rock, Ark., Asheville, N.C., and Boulder, Colo. Claire Gibson, the Forbes Travel Guide correspondent who wrote the story, described a “foodie city” as a place that “has its own identity when it comes to food.” The five cities that made the list were places Gibson had previously visited. “I decided that it would be best to include cities where I had actually tasted the food and enjoyed where I’d been,” Gibson said. In the feature, Gibson mentioned the Short North Arts District, highlighting four locations: Cameron Mitchell’s The Pearl, North Market, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Rigsby’s Kitchen. Ian Rough, regional chef for Cameron Mitchell’s restaurants, said he was not only happy to see The Pearl gain recognition, but the food industry in Columbus as a whole. “I’ve lived here my whole life and to see the restaurant industry kind of grow in this area has been amazing … The city is really becoming well-known for food and is kind of driving some of the

popularity and some reason for people to travel here. And that ultimately is a great thing,” Rough said. Some at North Market were pleased to be highlighted, as well. “All of us at North Market are honored to have (been) mentioned in Forbes,” Rick Harrison Wolfe, executive director for North Market, said in an email. “We strive to be ‘best in class’ in Columbus.” Representatives from Rigsby’s Kitchen did not return multiple requests for comment. When writing the story, Gibson said what stood out to her about the restaurants in Columbus was the local atmosphere. “(I) just enjoyed the feeling that there weren’t many things in
Bieber shouldn’t be deported, belongs in U.S. pop culture

Justin Bieber waves from atop an SUV as he leaves the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach Jan. 23 on speeding and DUI. charges.
SHELBY LUM Photo editor email@example.com “Zooming In” is a weekly series in which Photo editor Shelby Lum provides her insight on pop culture. The people at the White House usually have a plate full of national incidents and public discontent to manage. The battle continues over gun control, West Virginia was in a state of emergency over water supplies and I’m sure it’s been a blast asking Chris Christie what really happened with that bridge. Yet controversy has originated from the presence of another prominent figure: Justin Bieber. Following the pop star’s arrest for allegedly drunk drag race driving in Miami, the people have had enough, and the screams of protest were clear: deport Bieber. His breakup with Selena Gomez didn’t do it, his continual cancellation of concerts didn’t do it, but drag racing in Miami paired with the happiest mug shot ever was too much for the American people. Enough was enough. The petition began Jan. 23, and has since received more than 200,000 signatures, and the good people at the White House dealing with — well, everything else — will have to give deporting Bieber back to Canada some consideration since the petition has well passed the 100,000 signatures needed for the White House to not simply laugh at it. The Canadian star is set to be arraigned for charges on drunk driving, resisting arrest and having an expired license Feb. 14. Whether this is enough to be deported for, I can’t really be sure, but it apparently is enough for the population approximately half the size of Sacramento, Calif., to want his blond head out of America. “We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture,” the petition reads. “We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked.”

Singer Justin Bieber attends the premiere of ‘Justin Bieber’s Believe’ at the Regal Cinemas L.A. in Los Angeles Dec. 18. While I appreciate the historic use of “We the people,” I don’t think the petition can really claim to be all-inclusive. Does everyone want him gone? Probably not. The plethora of “Never Say Never” posters still for sale says otherwise. “He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our (nation’s) youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society,” the petition reads. Would the American community be better off without the 19-year-old star? Probably, but it also seems almost unfair to attempt to deport him specifically. If one nutty pop star must go, then all should go, but alas many of the other Hollywood crazies are Americans (I’m looking at you Kim Kardashian. We are stuck with you). So while the petition is stating that Bieber is misrepresenting American pop culture, he really seems to fit into it: self-obsessed, fast living and attention loving.
A burger on the line before it goes out to a diner at The Pearl. The restaurant was mentioned in ‘Forbes’ Travel Guide’s article ‘Five Secret Foodie Cities.’ that area that were corporate, large-scale restaurant groups that were kind of imposing,” Gibson said. “It really felt like a local place that people could just use their own creative ideas with their restaurants.” Some OSU students agreed with Gibson’s decision to include Columbus in her list. Dana Podell, a second-year in dance, said she believes Columbus was recognized as a foodie city because it is becoming a popular spot for new restaurants. “I feel like companies try a lot of things out in like a smaller city before they go to cities like New York and Chicago, and you’re getting a lot of different types of people in Ohio,” Podell said. Mike Lemon , a third-year in industrial design, said he felt the city’s culture plays a large role. “I think it kind of goes hand in hand with how Columbus seems to cultivate the arts, like the Short North … (and that) people want different options and are willing to try new things,” Lemon said. James Beard Award winner Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, a Columbus-based company recognized for using largely natural and local ingredients, expressed a similar opinion. “Just being in the center of Ohio, using ingredients found in Ohio, working with these farmers, feels like we are totally born and raised by the community of Columbus,” Bauer said. “I feel very proud to be among those listed.”
Comedian Erin Foley to empty pockets, jokes onto local stage JACOB HOLLAR Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Stand-up comedian Erin Foley might be able to empathize with moderate shoppers who become the targets of upselling. Foley hates shopping, she said — so much so that she only shops for clothes once a year. And on one such annual excursion, Foley was stopped by one of the women selling perfume in a department store. The woman tried, unsuccessfully, to sell some perfume to Foley by tempting her with a “free purse” if she spent a certain amount of money on perfume. “I don’t carry a purse,” Foley said to the woman, as recounted in an interview with The Lantern. Confused, the woman asked where Foley kept her things if she didn’t carry a purse. In her pockets, Foley said. “Like a man?” the saleswoman asked. “No,” Foley said. “Like a lady … with pockets.” And thus was born the name of Foley’s latest comedic tour. Foley is set to bring her Lady With Pockets Tour to Woodlands Tavern in Columbus Saturday. Personal anecdotes such as the one about her shopping experience often become the basis for her jokes, Foley said. “Everything I talk about happened to me,” she said. “It’s really personal. “My favorite type of stand-up is when you go see someone perform for 45 minutes or an hour and you feel like you know them. And that’s how I write, through things that happen to me.” According to Foley, everything that happens to the self-proclaimed sportsobsessed lesbian and New York-to-Los Angeles transplant is worthy of being in her comedy routine. Foley said some of her material stems from the time she was diagnosed as gluten intolerant and found out that it was a real thing to dating a woman several years younger than her. Foley has expanded her comedic presence beyond just appearing in comedy clubs, however. Foley has made several film and television appearances, including a halfhour special for Comedy Central and a spot on “Chelsea Lately.” She also has her own podcast called

Comedian Erin Foley is set to perfom at Woodlands Tavern Feb. 8. “Sports Without Balls.” The podcast is Foley’s excuse to talk about nothing but sports for an hour, she said. “I love sports and I’ve played sports my whole life, and I’ve always wanted to merge comedy and sports,” she said. Asked about Ohio State’s athletic teams, Foley said she doesn’t closely follow the football team — but she does keep tabs on another OSU team. “What I do really like and know more about is the basketball team,” she said. “I really like the men’s basketball team.” Though she’s found time to put out 30 episodes of her podcast and to fall in love with OSU senior guard Aaron Craft, Foley said stand-up remains her favorite medium. “I love it so much,” she said. “The live access — you write all day and try it out that night — the immediacy, the connection with the crowd — that can’t be beat … The beauty about stand-up is really connecting with the crowd.” Tickets to Foley’s 8 p.m. show at Woodland’s sold out, Natalie Heflin, Foley’s representative, said in an email. A second show at 10 p.m. was added, she said. Woodland’s Tavern is located at 1200 W. 3rd Ave. Doors are set to open at 7 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show and at 9 p.m. for the 10 p.m. show. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $30 for VIP seating.

It was by no means pretty, and the victory wasn’t official until a desperate heave by Wisconsin clanked off the rim at the final buzzer, but it was exactly what the Ohio State men’s basketball team needed. Coming into Saturday’s 59-58 win against the Badgers, No. 24 OSU (17-5, 4-5) had lost five of its last six games, including falling to Penn State for the first time under coach Thad Matta. And were it not for that missed 3-pointer at the buzzer by Wisconsin sophomore forward Sam Dekker, that stretch of frustration could have been even worse. Matta said the Buckeyes expected Wisconsin junior guard Traevon Jackson to take the shot at the end of the game, but he had to shove it off to Dekker because senior guard Aaron Craft gave him no space to work. Junior forward LaQuinton Ross defended Dekker once the ball got to him, and Matta recognized him for the defense he played on the final possession. “The one thing we know about Traevon — he’s a heck of a basketball player, and he likes big shots and he loves the ball at the end of the shot clock and at the end of the game,” Matta said after the game. “I mean, what, has he hit like 19 game-winners in his three years here? So we knew and we told our guys, ‘He’s probably going to take the shot,’ and LaQuinton did an incredible job of stunting, getting back and challenging the three (once the ball got to Dekker).” With the exclusion of their first loss of the season — Jan. 7 against then-No. 5 Michigan State, 72-68 — the Buckeyes have struggled in the final five minutes of games. In each of their other four losses, OSU floundered down the stretch, particularly in holding leads against Iowa, Nebraska and Penn State. Against the No. 14 Badgers (17-5, 4-5) it was OSU who had to come from behind and capitalize

Senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. (32) drives to the basket during a game against Penn State Jan. 29 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 71-70. “Our biggest focus now is enjoying this,” Craft said. “We’ll enjoy this for half a day and then we have another tough one on Tuesday. There’s not too much over-thinking going on. It’s find a way to be better than Iowa. That’s our only thought.”
Buckeyes ‘chop down’ Penn State in Big Ten hockey play grant miller Lantern reporter email@example.com Ohio State men’s hockey coach Steve Rohlik had a simple message for his team heading into its matchup with Penn State. “I told our guys, ‘Chop down a tree today,’” Rohlik said after Saturday’s game. Though his use of such a metaphor could come off as confusing to some, his team must have gotten the message. The Buckeyes (14-9-1, 4-5-1-0) made efficient work of cutting down the Nittany Lions (4-17-1, 0-8-0-0), sweeping them in a weekend at the Schottenstein Center. OSU was met with some resistance to begin Saturday’s encounter, as the Nittany Lions held a two-goal advantage heading into the second period. But then the Buckeyes went to work, chopping away at the deficit just as Rohlik intended. Junior forwards Tanner Fritz and Ryan Dzingel scored power play goals in the second period before sophomore forward Anthony Greco posted a goal of his own for the go-ahead late in the period.

Junior forward Matt Johnson (26) fights for the puck during a game against Penn State Jan. 31 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 5-1. Two more goals in the third put an exclamation point on the comeback win, one that showed Rohlik what his team can do. “I saw a hockey team grow up today. I’m proud of these guys,” Rohlik said. “They never panicked. They got in the locker room, talked about what we needed to do and got back to the basics.” Freshman goalie Christian Frey started both games on the weekend, making a career-high 46 saves Friday
night as OSU dominated the Nittany Lions in a 5-1 win. Frey, who was added to the OSU roster in December because of injuries and the departure of sophomore Collin Olson for the USHL, has won five of his six starts and said he is enjoying his switch to college hockey. “It’s weird coming to a new team halfway through the year,” Frey said after Friday’s win. “But the guys have been great to me and I feel like it’s been a smooth transition.”
Dzingel and fellow junior forward Max McCormick led the way with two goals each as the Buckeyes had another three goal second period that put the game beyond doubt. McCormick said the Buckeyes know what they are capable of and just want to live up to their own expectations. “We know we have (potential) in our locker room,” McCormick said. “It’s just a matter of if we execute the things that (our) coaches are asking us to do.” Saturday’s game was a special day for the OSU men’s hockey program as it celebrated its 50th anniversary. Three members of the inaugural team participated in a ceremonial puck drop, while the All-Buckeye Team was recognized during the first intermission. Rohlik was quick to recognize how important the history of the program is to the current team. “Those (alumni) are the reason we’re here, they put the bricks in the wall,” Rohlik said. “We’re just carrying the torch for this program.” Whether it’s carrying the torch or chopping down trees, this OSU team is doing it all with confidence. The Buckeyes are back on the road next weekend to face Michigan State. Friday’s game is set for 6:30 p.m. and Saturday’s game is set for 4 p.m.

on late game mistakes. In the game’s final 10:55, the Buckeyes did not take the lead until there was 1:36 left on the clock. Wisconsin failed to hit a single field goal in the final 6:42, something Matta attributed to an increase in pressure from the Buckeyes. “I think from the standpoint of we had very good activity, I thought guys were reading things and we were pressuring the ball where we needed it,” Matta said. “Probably the biggest thing was we gave quick help and got back and challenged what we needed to challenge.” He added that the players capitalized more on the opportunities they were given late in the game. “I thought we executed better down the stretch in terms of getting what we were trying to get out of our offense,” Matta said. “We were telling guys, ‘You’re going to have to take a big shot. You’re going to have to make a big play. You’re going to have to make a big free throw.’ I think that was kind of the difference, just more execution.” Despite the success in the end, OSU almost let another late game lead slip away. After Jackson missed the second of two free throws with less than 20 seconds left, senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. missed a wide open layup and turned the ball over on the ensuing offensive rebound when he fell to the ground and was called for traveling. With the Badgers in control of the ball with a shot to win the game, Craft said the team knew what it had to do. “We got in the huddle and looked each other in the eye and said ‘Hey, we need one stop.’ We couldn’t do that the last game out. We wanted to find a way to get it done today,” Craft said after the win. Next up, the Buckeyes are set to take on No. 15 Iowa (17-5, 6-3) Tuesday on the road, a team that beat OSU, 84-74, Jan. 12 at the Schottenstein Center. Although OSU is coming off a big victory, Craft said the celebration is going to be short-lived as attention switches to the Hawkeyes.

Senior midfielder Nick Diegel (15) attempts to stop an opposing player during a game against Robert Morris Feb. 1 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. OSU won, 11-7.
In its final exhibition match of the preseason, the No. 9-ranked Ohio State men’s lacrosse team bucked a troubling trend. After falling behind in the start in each of their first two exhibition matches, OSU lit the lamp early and never trailed against Robert Morris Saturday, defeating the Colonials, 11-7. Junior midfielder Jesse King — who finished the game with two goals and two assists — got the scoring going for the Buckeyes when he found the back of the cage just 39 seconds into the contest. Sophomore midfielder Eric Rankel scored 19 seconds later for the Colonials, who went 8-7 last season, before the Buckeyes scored the next two goals to lead 3-1 after the first quarter. Continuing the momentum, OSU used goals from King and senior attackman Adam Trombley to go into halftime with a 5-3 lead. “We just wanted to come out and start fast,” senior goalie Greg Dutton said after the win. “Last week against Navy, we had a bit of a slow start, so the focus this week was to get guys going.” Dutton was one of the big reasons OSU was able to get out to an early lead as the Timonium, Md., native stopped six shots in just under three quarters of action. Trombley said it helps the offense when their goaltenders are playing well because it allows them to take a few more chances. After replacing Dutton late in the third with the
Buckeyes leading 8-5, junior goalkeeper Cameron Stephens continued to stymie the Colonials offense as he made four saves of his own. “It helps our confidence knowing that if we turn it over, Dutton and Cameron will stop the shots and get the ball back to us,” Trombley said. OSU coach Nick Myers was impressed with how both goalies played. “I thought that the goalie position today was what we expect here at Ohio State,” Myers said. “Those guys really did their job. They made some saves they shouldn’t and they made saves we expect them to make. It was a really solid day in the cage.” Offensively, OSU spread the ball around as seven different Buckeyes tallied a goal with King, Trombley, sophomore attackman Gordie Koerber and freshman attackman J.T. Blubaugh tallying two goals apiece. Led by senior defenseman Joe Meurer, the Buckeyes defense held Robert Morris to seven goals, the lowest OSU has allowed in their three exhibition games, as well as forcing 17 turnovers. “I thought we were better today than we were last week and that is a small step in the right direction,” Myers said. “I’m happy with the improvement, but we understand there is still work to be done.” Up next for the Buckeyes is their regular season opener as they are set to hit the road for Baltimore, Md., where they take on future Big Ten Conference opponent No. 13 Johns Hopkins Sunday at 11:30 a.m. “Playing at Homewood Field is always a challenge,” Dutton said. “We look forward to the task at hand and we are going to prepare hard for them this week.”
