“We want to make this as inclusive of a USG as possible,” Stepp said. Although Stepp and Arndt will not technically become USG president and vice president until after a five-week transitional period ends on April 29, Stepp said their duties begin right away. “I’ve already gotten emails, text messages and calls from administrators,” Stepp said.

Fans given chance to go ‘behind the helmet’ Evan Speyer Lantern reporter email@example.com Ohio State students, staff and Buckeye fans had the rare opportunity to interact with their football team Saturday, as coach Urban Meyer held a two-hour open practice session at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Inclement weather moved the event from Ohio Stadium to the WHAC less than an hour before practice was scheduled to start. Without knowledge of the change, most fans arrived at the ‘Shoe only to have stadium’s ushers direct them to the WHAC. Even with the last-minute change of venue, about 3,100 students and faculty were in attendance. The event was supposed to include an opportunity to tour the locker rooms and press box during the practice session.
Attendees were still given access to Ohio Stadium’s venues, but those who stayed for the entirety of the session at the WHAC were disappointed to be denied access when they returned to the stadium on a shuttle after practice. Despite this setback, many said they still enjoyed the opportunity to see their football team in action. After practice, attendees were able to meet with their favorite players, pose for pictures and ask for autographs. “The players definitely had this untouchable aura before,” said Robert Delaney, a third-year in economics. “It is nice to see the face behind the helmet.” Meyer initiated the event as a way of bridging the gap between the student body and the student-athletes. Meyer said he hopes this event will become an annual tradition.

The 2012 USG election had the highest voter turnout since 1975, when 8,770 votes cast. This year, 8,653 votes were cast, according to election data. Running on the “Buckeye State of Mind” platform, Stepp and Arndt said they want to bring USG back to the students.

University officials said Ohio State is no place for hate, and after acts of vandalism on campus that officials declared as hate crimes, a task force was formed to address the problem. On April 5, “Long Live Zimmerman” was spraypainted on the west wall of Hale Hall, which is home to the Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center. Officials said the words refer to George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch leader who allegedly killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense Feb. 26 in Florida. President E. Gordon Gee and Board of Trustees member Algenon Marbley called for the formation of the task force, which is called No Place For Hate. Javaune Adams-Gaston, vice president of Student Life, heads the task force. No Place for Hate’s goal is to “hear what concerns are to ensure Ohio State is no place for hate, and to come up with potential solutions to present to a diversity workgroup,” Adams-Gaston said.

Dawn Miles, a Ph.D. candidate in history and a sit-in student advocate member of the task force, said No Place For Hate is student-oriented. “The majority of the task force is students, while there are also staff and faculty on it,” Miles said. “But I think they found the most diverse group of students they could. “The task force is meant Javaune to reflect the needs of the adams-gaston student body and what the students want, while facing the issue of diversity and inclusion on campus and identifying what areas need the most help.” Vijay Gadepally, president of the Council of Graduate Students, said the task force will ensure the OSU community remains intolerant of hate. “One of the important things is to be clear that we are a community that does not tolerate any amount of hatred or discrimination. I think we are a
very inclusive community, and we strongly believe in that,” Gadepally said. No Place For Hate held their first meeting Tuesday with about 25 members, including Marbley, who attended via phone, Adams-Gaston said. “We had good conversation (at the first meeting) about the charge of this community, what our timeline needs to be, and where we are at with diversity and inclusion on campus,” Adams-Gaston said. Miles said diversity education is an important goal of the task force. “We need to make sure everyone is on the same page so we can understand each others’ differences as well as understand what diversity is and not allow our differences to fracture the community,” Miles said. Gadepally outlined some other points he said he would like No Place for Hate to accomplish, including finding innovate ways to face discrimination and advertising the resources already available on campus, such as the Multicultural Center.

campus Students serve local children alliE JannECK Lantern reporter email@example.com Columbus schools had spring break last week, but what did that mean for the kids who relied on these schools to provide lunches for them? Ohio State students from the College of Social Work, along with numerous other organizations, volunteered from April 9–13 at the Barnett Community Center at 1184 Barnett Rd. to provide food and entertainment for children during their break. When school is in session, the National School Lunch Program provides students from economically disadvantaged families the opportunity to receive free or reduced-price lunches at their school, but it does not extend into their breaks. Communication director for the College of Social Work, Frankie Jones-Harris, helped gather students from OSU to participate in this annual event. More than 40 students from the college came out to participate. “Usually during spring break, you have kids who may not have access to lunches like they would normally get through the free and reduced lunch program,” Jones-Harris said. This event, typically geared toward elementary school kids, allowed for kids of all-ages in the community and surrounding areas to enjoy a free lunch throughout the week and to participate in activities such as story time, crafts, basketball and salsa dancing. “We’ve really seen and heard from students and whoever is bringing them (parents and guardians) that talk about what a positive program it is and how it does give the kids an outlet,” Jones-Harris said. “It also provides the family with relief in terms of not necessarily having to budget for an extra meal.” Students who have busy schedules with jobs and classes still find an opportunity to get involved and make a difference. Jones-Harris commended these students, and said that it really “shows you where their hearts are.” Alicia Parise, a fifth-year in social work, has participated in this event in the past and decided to do it again this year because of how rewarding it was for her. Volunteering is something she tries to be involved with to have a better role in the community. “Last year, I originally signed up to volunteer one day out of the week,” Parise said. “I had so much fun that first day that I decided to go back the following three days.” Denise Davis, a graduate student in social work, volunteered for the program for the first time, but said she wanted to partake in it for different reasons.

volunteers serve lunch to students during their spring Break. “I’ve had three children in the school system and I was appreciative when they were able to take advantage of free meals for schools,” Davis said. “It’s something good that they’re doing for the kids and it’s a working cause.” Davis said overall she had a great time giving back to the community and found it was a great way to spend her Friday outside of school. There were about 70 kids who showed up every day. Jonathan Evener, a fourth-year in social work, was also at the event every day participating in anything that he could. He worked on setting the event up and working throughout the day with handing out food and playing with the kids during the activities. The Christ United Methodist Church at 1480 Zettler Rd. assisted in the organization of this event. Tammy Hinkle-Moore, a member of this church, has worked on this event for the past three years and has seen it improve since its beginning. “This year we’re offering more fresh fruits and vegetables, as far as the diet, and we’re offering milk and water,” Hinkle-Moore said. Jones-Harris said the event was all about helping others. “It just strikes you that there are kids and families out there who are struggling and don’t have the resources to perhaps provide three meals a day that many of us are used to,” Jones-Harris said. “This event allows that to happen. It plugs a hole that may be existing in some kids and families’ lives.”

About one year after the Arab Spring, more than 115 Ohio State students and members of the community gathered for the second Arab World Film Festival. With a theme of “Resistance and Awakening,” several films were chosen to present a variety of struggles associated with the Arab world. The Arab Spring, which began in 2010 as a wave of protests against government corruption and a fight for human rights across North Africa and the Middle East, motivated the film selection greatly. The films chosen for the festival showed modern and historical social and political struggles in the Arab world. Many controversial topics like homosexuality in Muslim countries, rebellion against conservative parents and the effects of colonialism on the Arab world were presented. The two-day event included a total of nine films, complete with a buffet-style dinner provided by Shish Kebab Mediterranean Grill. About $1,500 was spent on obtaining the films for the festival. Some of them were first-run, awardwinning documentaries and not for purchase.
“We were surprised at how quickly and willingly our sponsors donated to the event. We had donations not only from OSU departments, but from the community as well,” said Sabra Webber, an associate professor of anthropology. The festival received sponsorship from the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Middle East Studies Center, Center for the Study of Religion and many others. Each film was accompanied with a brief introduction by faculty and students, to provide contextual information, geographical setting and a background of the directors. About 210 people signed up to attend the event and about 115 actually attended. “The turnout was great. In terms of advertising for the event, email reaches more people than posters or fliers for OSU. The community outside campus responds better to print. We did both,” said Allen Tuazon, a Ph.D. candidate in Islamic studies and a coordinator for the event. The festival was free for everyone, but donations were accepted and encouraged. “It’s a great event, especially for the Arab community at Ohio State since they may not get a lot of opportunities to watch a movie in their language here on campus,” said Maria Potter, a third-year in Arabic.

Monday will begin the process of establishing a cabinet. The cabinet is open to any OSU student who applies. Current USG President Nick Messenger said the dynamic of the election was different this year because there were four teams in the election. “It was interesting to see four teams competing, it created more uncertainty,” Messenger said. “Nobody really felt certain about how it was going to turnout.” In last year’s election, Messenger and his running mate, Emily DeDonato, campaigned against only two other teams. Messenger said even though Stepp and Arndt won, he congratulated all of the candidates on successful campaigns. “I encouraged all of them to stay involved in USG,” Messenger said. “My belief is that we are an organization that has a place for everybody. Everybody that wants to work to make the university a better place.” Messenger said the losing candidates are among the most qualified students to fill leadership positions at USG, and Stepp should not be afraid to appoint them to different positions. Stepp said the first two things that he and Arndt want to accomplish are a five-step safety plan and a semester conversion appeals court. The five-step plan includes preparations to increase funding for Student Safety Services, a gradual growth to the Student Safety Service budget, a push for a mutual-aid agreement between the Columbus Division of Police and OSU Police, the creation of a “Safe-Walk program” and an increase in safety education.
The semester conversion appeals court would be a group of students, faculty and/or administrators that they would appoint to rule on instances where “the university fails to meet its pledges to students,” Stepp said. Messenger said he understands that some students react negatively toward USG this time of year. “But the fact that we still had a record turnout shows we are still a very relevant part of this university,” Messenger said. Messenger said this year’s election was not without its share of issues. Responding specifically to the issue involving two of the candidates and an anonymous email sent, Messenger said he was proud that the candidates resolved the issue. “We see bad press every time campaign season comes around,” Messenger said. “I am proud that all four of them set that aside, none of them filed a judicial panel.” Messenger said this is the beginning of a transition stage from his presidency to Stepp’s. He said he is meeting with Stepp Monday to give him an overview of what Stepp’s job will entail. Arndt, a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, said he and Stepp are also looking to promote Greek life. “Greek life is a huge concern of mine and I’m very passionate about it,” Arndt said. “I want to make Greek life expand and I think that being USG vice president will offer a great avenue to advocate for that.” Stepp said he is glad that the campaign process is over, and said he can shift his focus to helping students as USG president. “I’m excited to get to work right away and get things done for OSU students,” Stepp said.

Andrew Blatter, a first-year graduate student in public policy and management, was an undergraduate at the University of Utah when Meyer was coaching there. Blatter said that while at Utah, Meyer thrived at getting the student body involved with the football program and that he was thrilled to see Meyer continue these efforts in Columbus. “Opening practice is such a gesture of his commitment to the student body,” Blatter said. “The things that he did at Utah will translate to Ohio State. I think that he really wants the students involved.” At Saturday’s practice, Meyer made an effort to utilize the students to simulate game situations as the team ran drills. During the later stages of the practice session, Meyer had the fans circle the special teams unit as rising junior place kicker Drew Basil launched field goals over the crowd. Players and coaches urged fans to make noise, giving Basil the opportunity to kick in a pressure situation. Basil connected on four out of six of his attempts, with one being blocked and another missing wide right. Donn Alspach, an OSU graduate from the class of 1953, was one of many non-students in attendance.

Alspach said he has owned season tickets since 1956 and has only missed two home games in 55 years. Though he has seen many great moments during his years as a Buckeye fan, the open practice was a memorable moment for Alspach. “I was impressed when I heard students were going to be able to attend,” Alspach said. “It’s a special day for Buckeye fans.” Prior to the field goal drill, attendees sat across the 20-yard line while the team used the remaining 80 yards to scrimmage. Though the defense dominated for the majority of the morning, fans got a few glimpses of Meyer’s prolific spread offense. When rising sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller connected with rising sophomore wide receiver Devin Smith on a 45-yard touchdown pass, the audience exploded with cheers confirming, for the fans, the event was about more than meeting the players and coaches. Maggie Killeen, a first-year in biology, said she enjoyed the opportunity to support her Buckeyes. “After everything that happened with the Tressel scandal, and after the disappointing season last year, it’s nice to let the team know that we are still behind them,” Killeen said.

Crime from 1A the next steps will be, and the group will meet again Monday. She said the task force has a very clear three-week limit before they will address Gee and the board. Hilary Van Meter, a third-year in speech and hearing science, said she wants to see the task force bring change to OSU. “I’d like above-and-beyond type of action,” Van Meter said. “I’d like to see them tackling the things we don’t see, things we don’t want to hear about, things we don’t want to talk about, and bring them to the surface.” Miles agreed. “It is important that we can impact change and stand up for what we believe in. It is important to have an open dialogue to foster change,” Miles said. Gadepally said he is proud of the OSU Stand Your Ground movement, which was formed in
tandem with the task force and has held several protests against hate crimes. “I like the idea that we want to stand our ground and there will be no elements of discrimination or intolerance allowed on this campus,” Gadepally said. “It just reinforces the idea that our student body is one of the most tolerant and inclusive campuses on earth. The Stand Your Ground movement is a testament to that.” Van Meter said she agrees that something needs to be done, because the recent hate crimes on campus have brought problems into the light. She said she hopes the task force is able to be effective in its action. “I hope it will unify our school,” Van Meter said. Miles agreed that securing unification is important for OSU. “We should be able to be educated in a space that is not just safe, but welcoming,” Miles said. “We all belong here, we should all feel welcome every day.”
OSU sues poultry farm for use of O-H-I-O patrick cooley Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org A poultry farm in Canton found itself in legal hot water last month, when Ohio State filed a federal lawsuit to compel the organization to stop using the university’s popular ‘O-H-I-O’ cheer on its product packaging. Almost anyone who has ever attended an OSU sporting event has heard those four letters shouted in a variety of ways by enthusiastic students and fans supporting the Buckeyes. In 2009, Park Poultry, Inc. paid to use the recognizable cheer on its products. The $45,000 deal gave the farm the right to use OSU’s athletic logo and other trademarked material. When the agreement expired, the farm stopped using the logo, but continued to put the cheer on its packages, along with chickens dressed in scarlet and gray, according to a 41-page suit filed in federal court last month.
The successor to Park Poultry is at the receiving end of the lawsuit seeking royalties for the use of OSU’s intellectual property. “Repeated attempts by OSU to have Park Poultry cease their activities and pay OSU a royalty for the use Park had made after the license expired were not successful,” said Joseph Dreitler, a lawyer hired to represent OSU, in an email. “Thus the school was left with no choice but to enforce its legal rights in court.” Case Farms purchased most of Park Poultry’s operations earlier this year, according to the Canton Repository. It is unclear if Case Farms continued to use the same packaging, and representatives from Case did not return multiple phone calls for comment. OSU has one of the 10 most profitable athletic programs in the United States, according to the “Sports Business Journal,” with promotional licensing accounting for nearly $9 million a year. With the federal lawsuit,
Dreitler said OSU is trying to protect its brand. The university is “seeking royalties and an injunction to make certain that they not use Ohio State’s trademarks in the future,” he said. However, many OSU students thought the university was going too far. “You’re allowed to write O-H-I-O, does it really matter where you put the hyphen?” said Matt Rowan, a fifth-year in criminology. “It doesn’t seem like it’s hurting anyone.” Andrew Forbes, a fifth-year in engineering, agreed. “I don’t understand all the legal mumbo-jumbo,” he said. “But if they’re promoting the school, what does it matter?” But an OSU professor said cases like this are common. “Companies sue for alleged trademark violations all the time,” said Guy Rub, an assistant
professor for OSU’s Moritz College of Law. Rub said this particular case is interesting because the mark the university is suing over is based largely on the name of a state. OSU’s claims that when buyers see the packaging, they immediately think of OSU’s athletic programs. However, Rub said the farm could claim that buyers don’t think of the school, but of the state of Ohio. Filing the suit, he said, is the first step in a long process and Case Farms has several options. “For example, they could contact OSU and try to negotiate a deal in return for OSU dropping the case,” Rub said. The farm could also fight the suit in court, or they could decide to cave and agree to the university’s demands, he said.

studentvoice Meyer keeps recruits coming
Since a white-hot start to the 2013 recruiting class, Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer seemed to have taken his foot off the recruiting trail pedal. But recently, the Buckeyes’ class of 2013 has received another growth spurt, with likely more growth to come. Early in this year’s football recruiting cycle, Meyer carried the momentum from a strong close to the class of 2012 into the upcoming 2013 class. On the heels of National Signing Day 2012 on Feb. 1, Meyer picked up pledges from the top two prospects in Ohio for the class of 2013. Six weeks ago, Evan Lisle, the top offensive line product in Ohio out of Centerville, announced his intention to play for the Buckeyes. Standing at 6’ 6”, Lisle figures to line up at tackle and be a stronghold on the edge of the line. On April 1, Meyer received commitments from Toledo Central Catholic product Jayme Thompson, a safety rated as the 146th best player in the nation, and running back Ezekiel Elliot, a speedster out of St. Louis. And early last week, Marcus Baugh, an athletic tight end out of southern California became the eighth member of the 2013 class.

With the loss of scholarships in the fallout of the “Tattoo-gate” scandal, look for the Buckeyes to have a class somewhere in the range of 18 to 20 players, which would leave 10 to 12 spots open with eight already committed.

Yes, many stores sell shorts that are more like denim undergarments for women, but if you can’t bend over without showing half your rear end, they aren’t appropriate for class. The same goes for summer dresses and skirts. Solution: leggings or longer clothing. There’s nothing wrong with working out and being fit. There is something wrong with wearing your muscle tees and cutoffs to class. We are all happy you’re in love with your pecks, but if you’re not the subject of an anatomy class’ PowerPoint, please cover them up. Light, flowing fabric is great for staying cool in springtime, but if you can’t keep your undergarments from showing, it’s time to layer up. I don’t want to see hot-pink polka dots through your sundress. Same goes for the men: your plaid boxers are not cute under those white golf shorts. Ohio State has no official dress code or requirements as a public university, and I doubt any professor would ask a student to leave class because of his or her outfit. During Spring Quarter, I think some professors are just happy students are choosing to forego a day on the Oval to come to class. But nice weather seems like an excuse for many people to expose more skin than the rest of us care to see. Sometimes going to class is suddenly an MTV Spring Break party and somebody’s about to get their bikini top untied. I shouldn’t spend my time in class wondering if the girl in front is going to fall out of her low-cut tank top or when the guy giving his presentation is going to find his shorts around his ankles. I don’t care how much skin you want to show on your weekends or nights out, or even during the day on Oval Beach. But in class, clothing shouldn’t be distracting students or professors, regardless of the weather.

By comparison, the Buckeyes’ 2012 recruiting class also had seven of the top 150 players, but that was for a full recruiting cycle. The 2013 cycle started about two months ago. Impressive. It started with the commitment of defensive back Cameron Burrows of Trotwood-Madison, the No. 2-ranked cornerback in the nation, per Rivals. Within two weeks, athlete Jalin Marshall of Middletown was on board as well. Highly touted defensive tackle Billy Price, out of Austintown Fitch High School in Youngstown, and the top-rated player in New Jersey, defensive back Eli Woodard, joined the class shortly thereafter, giving the class four of the top 130 prospects in the nation. But following this blazing start, a quiet period that lasted through much of February and into March had some fans sitting on pins and needles, especially while coach Brady Hoke and that team up north picked up a slew of top flight commitments. Yet most figured it was just a matter of time before Meyer, known as a coach who thoroughly enjoys recruiting and is as competitive as they come on the recruiting trail, would catch fire once again. And that appears to be the case. Do not be surprised to see the streak continue. With OSU’s Spring Game scheduled for Saturday, keep an eye out for even more commitments. Spring games are generally big recruiting weekends for prominent teams as they are the best showcase for the program outside of the regular season. With Meyer recruiting some of the biggest names in the class of 2013, do not be surprised to see a couple of them at the game this weekend and possibly a couple

Nickelback in concert ... ‘Never Again’ Alex Antonetz Arts editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Artists’ talk: Jennifer Anable + heather F. Wetzel 4 p.m. @ Wexner Center Film/Video Theater Michael Kent 6 p.m. @ Backstage Bistro All Became new 9 p.m. @ Skully’s Music-Diner
For a moment, the members of Nickelback rose to the sky, almost as if they had left this life and gone on to another one. Sadly, that wasn’t the case. The Canadian band performed at the Schottenstein Center Sunday before a far from sold-out crowd of mostly middle-aged moms and dudes with faux-hawks wearing Affliction shirts. A few songs into its set, a circular apparatus adorned with clock gears, a drum set and a clear, plastic wall descended from the rafters. The band hopped on and the device transported the band in the air from the end of the arena where the main stage was to the other. While it was a nice touch visually, you can only do so much to disguise a lousy catalogue of songs, which Nickelback certainly has. Nothing about the show was particularly unexpected — silhouettes of dancing women appeared on the large video screen behind the band, and loud explosions and fireballs constantly erupted from the set, which made watching the about 90-minute show the equivalent of drinking a case of Red Bull while watching Spike TV. Frontman Chad Kroeger, sans his trademark long hair, which he claims is a real hit with the ladies, offered plenty of Kroeger-like moments. Before playing “Side of a Bullet,” Kroeger told the audience he wanted to play some metal and drink some beer. The former is nothing short of laughable, sure, but at least there was some logic behind the latter. Summoning his stage hands to toss cups of beer into the crowd was a genius move, one that allowed anyone who caught their remnants to drink away the pain suffered by extended exposure to the wall of noise Nickelback was creating. At the same time, T-shirts were fired into the crowd, as if you wanted some kind of physical reminder of where you were Sunday.

Look at this photograph of Chad Kroeger, lead singer of Nickelback, who performed at the Schottenstein Center April 15. But if you did, you’re in luck. Kroeger said during the show that a camera crew was there filming the show for god-knows-what. The band played most of its well-known singles, including “Photograph” and “Gotta Be Somebody.” During “How You Remind Me,” Kroeger came in with his vocals at the wrong time, a gaffe 50 times funnier for the simple fact it was Nickelback. Later, when it played “When We Stand Together,” Kroeger asked that the entire planet come together to fix what is wrong with the world. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as if he thinks Nickelback is one of those problems.
Fans seemed to still be on board, though. Kroeger said he once attended an Ohio StateMichigan game a few years ago, which OSU won, and tried to take credit for it. After a few “O-H … I-Os” and saying, “F---, I love this town,” the already largely hammered crowd was certainly in his favor. Before its two-song encore, Nickelback played “Burn It To The Ground.” While the pyrotechnicheavy song might have seared off a few of my facial hairs, I couldn’t help but be disappointed it didn’t melt away the migraine and memories the prior 90 minutes had given me.

Amid cheering fans and booming crashes, the Schottenstein Center was filled with a different type of champion Saturday, much different than the Buckeye basketball players who normally rule the court. The final leg of the Monster Truck National tour crashed through campus, filling the Schott with crowds of families and some Ohio State students looking for a new experience. The show, one of the largest in the country, brought six competing trucks that went head-tohead in four categories. In the wheelie, donut and

The three-kid team, made up of brothers Kaid Jaret, 8, and Jake Royce, 7, Olson-Weston and friend Cassie Berry, 14, is the world’s youngest monster truck team. Kaid Jaret, who also goes by Kid KJ, started driving monster trucks when he was 3 years old. “He went to a show and said, ‘I want a monster truck.’ So his dad bought him a go-cart, but that wasn’t good enough.” Boden said. “‘Dad, that’s not a real one,’ he said.

The winner of the freestyle competition, where the drivers are free to show their chosen skills, including jumping, crushing and driving backward, was judged by crowd response. In the end, E3 Spark Plugs Bigfoot, driven by Rick Long, took home the freestyle trophy. Long was also the winner of the racing portion. “The freestyle is my favorite, when the trucks get wild and crazy and do whatever they want,” said Emily Boden, marketing manager for Family Events, the producer of Monster Truck Nationals. “They don’t have to do anything specific. It gets crazy.” Though the show was a competition, MTN brought more than monster trucks for the audience’s pleasure. Also making appearances were rising

DJ Rainer performs at Off the Grid, which took place at the Wexner Center for the Arts, April 14.
Off the Grid put its attendees’ senses on high alert as art, food, drinks and music collided. The Wexner Center for the Arts throws Off the Grid annually to raise money for Wexner Center education programs, which aim to educate grades K-12 in art, video production and writing. “All the money raised through ticket sales and raffle tickets goes to the education program,” said Erik Pepple, community outreach and marketing manager for the Wexner Center. Tickets were sold out and priced at $55. Raffle tickets were $10 for one or $50 for six. Prizes ranged from two American Airlines tickets to gift certificates to Columbus’ The Refectory Restaurant and Bistro. Attendees dressed to kill for the event. Women wore dresses with heels while men donned pants with sport coats. This year’s event was 3-D-themed with three dimensions of the Wexner Center occupied: Heirloom Café, Mershon Auditorium lobby and the black box performance space, which was set up like a nightclub. There was a giant X made out of long
fringe projecting visuals by Rainer Ziehm, who goes by DJ Rainer, in the space. The speakers made the ground vibrate as Italian New Yorker DJ Mike Simonetti played slow, melodic house beats. A crowd of about 300 danced until they took their heels and jackets off. “I think it’s really fantastic,” Ashley Aminian, a Columbus attorney, said. “There has been a real decline in electronic music in the past 10 years, and it’s nice to at least once a year have a revival.” Off the Grid offered a variety of musical styles. DJ Brooke LaValley played old school funk and soul in the Mershon Lobby. Rainer also provided smooth house beats mixed with old school sounds in the Mershon Lobby and the black box. DJ Patrick Hicks offered hip-hop music to partygoers in the performance space for the last hour. The scent of lamb from Due Amici and pork from Rigsby’s Kitchen permeated the lobby. The Herloom Café held two bars that served cocktails, wine and beer. Local restaurants provided hors d’oeuvres. Middle West Spirits hosted a tasting of OYO vodka products in the Mershon Lobby as well. The samples of vodka included OYO Honey Vanilla Bean with a vanilla finish, OYO Stone Fruit and OYO Vodka. They also offered a sample of OYO Whiskey.

Jason Ross, an oSU alumnus, launched Jackthreads, a men’s ‘ﬂash sale’ website. supplier/brand relationships and infrastructure of Jackthreads with the elusive audience of Thrillist created a game-changing new business model — and the growth has been incredible,” said Ben Lerer, CEO and co-founder of Thrillist Media Group, in an email. Ross said working under the Thrillist umbrella had prevented him from making many business mistakes that Thrillist has already made during periods of high growth. Ross does not attribute the success of the company to working under Thrillist, however. “I think we’ve gotten much better at knowing
our customers,” Ross said. “Providing a shopping experience that just gets better and better every day and most consistently puts product in front of our customers that they care about.” Ross graduated from OSU with a degree in finance in 2003 and has kept his business based in Columbus. Students such as Daniel Espinosa, who graduated from OSU in 2011 with a degree in strategic communication, have given Ross a hiring base. “I was in an entrepreneurship course and a girl came in and she said that Jackthreads was looking for people to help them out and I said I could, and I’ve been there ever since,” Espinosa said. Espinosa is a buying assistant for Jackthreads. Despite using OSU as a hiring base in Columbus, Ross said it’s harder to break into the fashion business from Ohio than it is from somewhere like New York. “The suppliers that we work with are basically all based in New York, and so not being able to sit in front of them face-to-face and build relationships was challenging, but we overcame that through a lot of phone work and traveling to trade shows,” Ross said. For this reason, Ross hired a team of freelance buyers in New York to find upcoming brands he would have no way of knowing about. “Being able to build a buying team of talented merchants who also have relationships with these suppliers that we’re working with that are located in other parts of the country — that’s not exactly easy to find in Columbus,” Ross said. By targeting a younger audience, social media has helped the growth of the Jackthreads brand. “(Social media is) more so for us to build brand loyalty and affinity with our customers through social channels,” Ross said. “We’re able to have an open dialogue with our customers, and they are so engaged.” CNN cited Jackthreads March 27 as one of the few companies that responds to customers’ JOIN THE CONVERSATION Facebook wall posts and did not delete questions customers left on their walls. Jackthreads launched its mobile shopping app in February and has seen success with more than 150,000 downloads within the first month, Ross said. Although he is the co-founder of a company that features new clothing options every 24 hours, Ross said he does stick to what he knows will work. “I have a pair of APC raw denim … but unfortunately there’s a hole in the crotch,” Ross said laughing. “It’s been two years and it’s a real bummer. I’ve got to get them sewn up.” Head and neck screening lantern ad_Layout 1 3/1/12 11:38 AM Page 1
One Ohio State computer science class project has turned into a $50 million business. In 2007, Jason Ross, CEO and co-founder of Jackthreads, approached Rajiv Ramnath, an associate professor of computer science and engineering at OSU, about having his computer science class build the brand’s website. The site, jackthreads.com, is a “flash-sale” site, meaning something different is available for purchase every 24 hours. The merchandise is focused on men’s streetwear and niche clothing. “I don’t have a technology background and I had no idea how to build a website,” Ross said. “It was a great way … to get the project kicked off, learn from these students without spending a lot of money and get some momentum going.” After the quarter’s end, Ross hired two of Ramnath’s students to finish building the site until it was ready to launch in 2010. “I don’t think it would have happened if I hadn’t found that class,” he said. Since then, Jackthreads has grown, bringing in record-level revenue, working with more than 500 brands and hosting more than 2 million members. “A significant amount of our business comes from New York, Southern California, Chicago, Miami, some of the bigger metropolitan areas. What excites me is that there are guys who don’t live in those areas but who care about what we do,” Ross said. He added the majority of Jackthread customers are urban-dwelling males 18-to-35 years old. The website is based on an “invite-only” marketing strategy. One gives the site his or her email address, zip code and a possible password, after which the person receives a “Welcome to Jackthreads” email. Jackthreads paved the way for “invite-only” flash-sale sites like Gilt Groupe and Rue La La that focus more on women’s clothing. “By having it as ‘invite only,’ that really gave the brands comfort that what we were doing was helping them move merchandise but also doing it in a way that protected them,” Ross said. “From a marketing standpoint, we’re also incentivizing our audience to spread the word for us through this model.” The turning point for Jackthreads was when Thrillist bought it, a website focused on urban lifestyle for men, in 2010. Jackthreads’ revenue grew from $5 million to $50 million in a year-and-a-half. “The Jackthreads-Thrillist partnership was a no-brainer for both companies. Combining the
and Cassie, they were able to find someone that custom builds these trucks for them.” Before suiting up and getting behind the wheel, the kids had to attend a school where they learned the driving skills and mechanics for their half-scale monster trucks. “They’re driving in a controlled environment, or as controlled as you may want to say it is,” Boden said. “They understand the ins and outs of a truck better than you or I would. They’re very knowledgeable and they do it every weekend, so they get a lot of practice.” Despite the Schottenstein Center’s basketball court-sized floor space, fitting five 10,000-pound monster trucks, three half-scale mini monsters and 10 cars used for demolishing was no feat for the MTN crew, said Bridgett Warner, who came to the event with her coworkers from the Limited Brands. “I was curious about how they were going to do it because it’s such a small space,” Warner said. “I thought the space was going to be a lot bigger, so I was surprised they were able to get enough speed to get over the cars.” Other winners included wheelie champion Lucas Oil Stabilizer, driven by Bobby Holman, and Star Marshal, driven by Dave Radzierez, who took home the best donut title. Some OSU students said they enjoyed the show. “I had never been to a monster truck show before,” said Dawn Call, a fifth-year in photography. “We saw this on Ticketmaster and decided it would be really fun to go to.” Although on a college campus, Boden said the event was aimed toward families and children. “With Monster Truck Nationals, this is a family event,” Boden said. “We provide an up-close experience where you can, literally, get up to the trucks. It’s all about the kids, and that’s why we all enjoy it, because we’re all kids at heart.”

OSU junior Cory Kunze clears a hurdle during the Jesse Owens Track Classic April 14 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won 12-of-36 events in the two-day event.
As the Jesse Owens Track Classic opened to calm weather Friday night, Ohio State redshirt senior distance runner Adam Green remarked that there was “beautiful weather, which seems like the first time in a few years (for the Jesse Owens Track Classic).” However, rain returned for nearly all of Saturday’s session of the meet. OSU athletes won 12 of 39 total events contested in this year’s edition of the annual two-day meet held at OSU’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes had a slow start to the meet, not winning any of the 10 events contested on the first day of the meet on Friday. Victories for OSU came in with the rain on Saturday. Eight Buckeye individual athletes won events, and OSU won all four relays contested. Senior Christina Manning, who recently set a school record with a time of 12.68 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles at the Jim Click Shootout on March 31, followed up that performance with a winning time of 13.06 seconds on Saturday. Manning was also on the winning 4x100-meter relay team along with senior Madison McNary, sophomore Chesna Sykes and junior Christienne Linton. Manning said she believes this relay team can be a big contender going forward this season. “I really think that we should be a top team for nationals,” Manning said.
Another winning performance that stood out to OSU coach Karen Dennis was that of senior Maggie Mullen, who won the hammer throw with a throw of 59.84 meters. “I thought Maggie had an outstanding throw,” Dennis said. Other individual winners on the women’s side were junior Nyjah Cousar in the 400-meter hurdles (58.98 meters), freshman Aisha Cavin in the 200-meter dash (24.24 meters), and senior Ashley Galbraith in the high jump (1.7 meters). Also victorious were the women’s 4x400meter relay team of Cavin, Cousar, freshman Alexandria Johnson and senior Shaniqua McGinnis, with a time of 3:45.12. Redshirt junior Cory Leslie was victorious in the men’s mile run on Saturday. Leslie finished with a time of 4:01.99, exactly five seconds ahead of Rob Myers, an OSU alum who is a professional runner. Myers holds the meet record in the mile with a time of 3:59.43, set in 2007 during his time as a Buckeye. Leslie sometimes trains with Myers, and said that he enjoyed competing against him. “It’s fun,” Leslie said. “It’s always nice when you train a little bit with these guys to actually being able to race them.” In the 400-meter hurdles, OSU men took the top four spots in the event. Freshman Antonio Blanks won in a time of 52.56 seconds. Following him were freshman Luke Norris (52.74), junior Marcus Brooks (52.78) and sophomore Demoye Bogle (53.90).

How OSU baseball plays during rain delays Darius Thigpen Lantern reporter email@example.com
Rain delays are a big part of baseball, and the Ohio State baseball team was reminded of that this past weekend. During rain-outs, the players have to keep themselves entertained, and the Buckeyes have a few preferred pastimes they use while waiting to participate in America’s pastime. A game can be delayed when rain causes low visibility for players, the field isn’t playable due to pooling or standing water or if there is lightning in the area, according to the Major League Baseball rule book. The umpires at the games make rulings about rain delays. Delayed games might be resumed when the weather improves to the umpires’ liking, or the field is cleared of water, but are canceled and can be made up in a doubleheader if the problem persists. The OSU baseball team had two games postponed due to rain. The most recent weatherrelated interruption in the Buckeyes’ schedule occurred Saturday when OSU’s afternoon game against Nebraksa was rained out and rescheduled for Sunday as part of a doubleheader. OSU lost both games, 5-4, and 17-9, respectively, and lost the series, 2-1. The Buckeyes also had seven games rained-out and cancelled last season. Buckeye players said no one has done anything comparable to the viral videos of minor-leaguers jousting or holding a dance competition, but they like to have fun during weather delays. “We haven’t had any jousting, but we had our manager slide across the turf when it was raining,”
We haven’t had any jousting, but we had our manager slide across the turf when it was raining. But for the most part, we’re just fooling around and staying loose. Dave Corna OSU baseball senior outfielder said senior outfielder Dave Corna. “But for the most part, we’re just fooling around and staying loose.” Senior pitcher Andrew Armstrong said the Buckeyes haven’t had a chance to bust out anything too crazy since there’s only been one rain delay. Armstrong also said as a team, they like to stay relaxed during delays before and during games. “It all really depends on what you feel like doing,” Armstrong said. “Some guys like to have fun and do stuff. We’ll go and play two-ball, a practice game or we’ll watch TV. It depends on the mood of the game. Like, if we’re losing probably not a lot, but if it’s before the game we’ll just have fun.” Players said they like to stay relaxed during the delays in the middle of games, but coach Greg Beals said the players tend to keep working as well. “You try to keep it loose,” Beals said. “Some guys will go in (to the team clubhouse) and play cards or play XBOX, and some guys will even hit in the batting cages. Other guys will just sit in the dugout and play the name game. A bunch of different stuff goes on.” Beals said his team is full of guys with lots of personality, but the fun will stay in-house when the tarp is rolled out onto the field because of rain. “We’ve got some good characters in our club, but we’re not the type to go out on stage and do it,” Beals said. “We’ll keep it in the clubhouse.”

OSU freshman Jordan Moxley clears a hurdle during an April 14 Jesse Owens Track Classic event at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
Track from 1B Individual winners for the men’s team also included junior Marvel Brooks in the 400-meter dash (47.64) and freshman Timothy Faust in the 100-meter dash (10.75). The men were also victorious in the 4x100 (40.94) and 4x400 relays (3:12.66). One meet record was set Friday night. Unattached runner Jeff Schirmer, an alum of Southern Illinois University, set the record in the 5,000-meter run with a time of 13:59.59. Due to the inclement weather, the men’s and women’s pole vault had to be moved inside to OSU’s French Field House. OSU sophomores Heath Nickles and Cody Marshall tied for second on the men’s side, clearing a height of 5.05 meters. Freshman Kim Concillado was OSU’s top performer on the women’s side. She placed 17th with a clearance of 3.25 meters. All of the other events were still held as planned and on schedule. OSU men’s interim coach Ed Beathea said his team did well considering the weather conditions. “I thought the team competed well both days,” Beathea said. “We’ve done pretty well with dealing with weather in the past six years.” Dennis, on the other hand, said her team needs to respond better to weather conditions in the future. “We have to learn how to compete better in adverse conditions,” Dennis said.

OSU senior attacker Alayna Markwordt carries the ball during a March 4 game against Notre Dame. OSU lost, 16-7.
Women’s lacrosse loses to Penn State Andy Evans Lantern reporter email@example.com The Ohio State women’s lacrosse team can’t seem to top Penn State. Coming into Sunday’s game, OSU had not beaten the Nittany Lions since 2008. Despite OSU being the higher ranked team, nothing changed in the two teams’ most recent meeting, and the No. 10 OSU squad fell to No. 13 Penn State, 15-12. “We didn’t come out strong, we came out pretty flat,” said OSU senior attacker Alayna Markwordt. “Penn State has always been one of our biggest rivals, so this is a frustrating one to lose.” Markwordt, Ohio State’s leading scorer, was held without a goal but did contribute two assists and had two groundballs. The Buckeyes (9-4, 1-3) struck first on sophomore attacker Katie Chase’s unassisted goal two-and-a-half minutes into the game. From that point, it was a back-and-forth battle, with the two teams trading sets of goals for the rest of the first half. OSU jumped out to a 4-2 lead with 10 minutes remaining in the half, but the lead would turn into a 5-4 deficit after Penn State freshman attacker Maggie McCormick ripped off three straight goals in less than two minutes. The two teams went into the locker room tied at 6-6 after a goal from OSU sophomore midfielder Cara Facchina, which came after an assist from freshman attacker Jackie Cifarelli with 24 seconds
left. Penn State (10-4, 2-2 Big Ten) had 13 fouls compared to OSU’s four in the first half. “The heat of the game builds up ‘cause you know you’re playing your rival that you come out against every year, and it’s always a battle,” said freshman goalie Tori DeScenza. She finished the game playing all but the last three minutes and had seven saves, including five in the second half. The next 30 minutes started much like the first except Penn State struck first. Sophomore attacker Mackenzie Cyr scored with McCormick chipping in on one of her team-leading four assists. Cyr and McCormick lead the team with four goals and four assists apiece, and were responsible for teaming up on five of the teams 15 goals. The back-and-forth battle continued as OSU’s Kirsten Donahue tied the game at 7-7 on a free position shot. The senior midfielder went on to score three of her team-leading four goals in the second half. The game was tied at 11-11 with 17:34 to play when once again, Donahue scored. But that would be the last time OSU would stay tied with Penn State as the Nittany Lions jumped out to a 13-11 lead with 15 minutes to go. Penn State would go on to score the last two goals, the final one coming on Cyr’s fourth of the game. “They just kind of took it at the end and we just couldn’t be there with it,” DeScenza said. The team has two regular season games left, including a home match-up against American University 2 p.m. Saturday.
