Gee exit to save $4M


$1M in administrators’ travels includes private jets, luxury hotels Sexual harassment KAYLA BYLER Managing editor of design

Former President E. Gordon Gee

Five-star hotels and private jets – some Ohio State senior administrators are traveling in style on the university’s dime. Some travel is necessary. Everything, including universities, is moving toward a globalized model. However, some think this move could represent a shift in universities’ core priorities, especially in a time where budgets are tight and tuition is rising. Some officials’ trips show a discrepancy in their intended purposes. One trip taken by two of OSU’s senior administrators was supposed to be a compliance review of the university’s Global Gateway Offices, but an itinerary indicates that a majority of the 10-day venture might have been spent building relations and seeking potential donors with about 6 ½ hours spent at the Gateway offices. The Lantern obtained reports outlining the travel expenses and schedules for 24 of OSU’s senior administrators. These records detail hundreds of trips taken by these individuals, totaling upwards of $1.1 million in university-paid expenses in the past two years, the majority of which was spent by then-President E. Gordon Gee. OSU doesn’t specifically budget travel for certain people or groups. Instead, individuals manage their own travel and it is budgeted to their department, Lauren Lubow, director of OSU’s Public Records Office, said in an emailed statement. The records also don’t document all expenses related to a certain trip. These reports “are not all-inclusive … the reports also do not necessarily reflect credit card expenditures linked to a particular trip,” she said. They also do not include some payments made in advance. Lubow explained that the automated system OSU uses for tracking employees’ travels documents expenses in this way. The Lantern requested the travel budgets and other records including salaries and performance reviews Jan. 23, and the request was filled March 24.

Records detailing the travel of then-President E. Gordon Gee show more than $1 million in travel expenses from July 2011 to July 2013. Some of that amount represents expenses for other people who might have shared flights or transportation with Gee, and Lubow said the President’s Office is

reimbursed for all or part of expenses if the other travelers or the primary business purpose of the trip involves another department. A large portion of these expenses, $332,169, went to NetJets, a private business jet rental company Gee used. NetJet expenses are shown for domestic destinations such as San Francisco, New York, and Ft. Myers, Fla., in addition to in-state locations like Port Clinton, Cincinnati and Cleveland. OSU policy encourages employees to use certain travel carriers when possible, OSU spokesman Gary Lewis said in an email. OSU receives discounts from American Airlines, Delta and United. Travel Solutions and Travel Designers, both based in Columbus, are “the university’s designated travel agencies,” according to the Office of the Controller website. “These airlines are encouraged when practical, because university business travelers can realize negotiated discounts on published airfare when tickets are issued directly with one of the university’s partners,” Lewis said. Gee’s other expenses are in relation to international destinations, including several trips to Europe totaling $61,257 and Sao Paulo for $60,710. However, the director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity said the cost of

international travel by top university officials might be too much. “There’s excessive amount of international travel probably going on. Universities are trying desperately to set up overseas programs,” said Richard Vedder, an economist and director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity and professor at Ohio University. “We should have an international dimension but it’s one of proportionality. Is it really necessary for us to be pushing the OSU brand name all over the world?” he added. OSU has Global Gateway offices in China and India and is working to establish one in Sao Paulo, set to open this year. “The Brazil Gateway will help the university explore partnerships with universities in Brazil through its Academic Partnership Program, designed to increase collaboration on a global level, connect students and faculty with researchers in Brazil and further facilitate global advancements on the world’s most pressing issues,” according to the Office of International Affairs website. Gee retired from his role as president July 1, days after controversial comments he made at a Dec. 5, 2012, OSU Athletic Council meeting came under public scrutiny. Joseph Alutto assumed the presidency after Gee’s retirement.

Alutto seems to take a bit of a slower pace than Gee when it comes to travel. Records for Alutto show he took at least 19 trips since he assumed the interim presidency. During the same time the previous year, Gee took 25 trips. The cost related to the trips Alutto took during fiscal year 2014 was not included in the records provided to The Lantern. While serving as executive vice president and provost, Alutto made at least 15 trips, which totaled $6,185.

complaints top Ohio State reports SAM HARRINGTON Senior Lantern reporter

Of 141 harassment and discrimination reports filed with Ohio State from 2011-13, roughly 62 percent involved a sexual harassment complaint. But that might not represent the extent of the instances, as one local lawyer said he’s sure there are more cases that went unreported. In 2013, there were 52 reports of alleged workplace harassment and discrimination filed with OSU Office of Human Resources, according to university data. The yearly number of reports, as compared to previous years, has increased: there were 47 reports in 2012 and 42 reports in 2011. This data represents complaints filed by any of OSU’s 43,630 employees and is not representative of Wexner Medical Center employees, as the Medical Center conducts its own harassment investigations. Reports were investigated and determined to have either been a false allegation, to have determined inappropriate behavior occurred, to have sufficient evidence to indicate a violation of university policy, sufficient evidence to indicate that no university policy violation had occurred or insufficient evidence to indicate a violation of university policy. Of the 141 reports filed over 2011-13, 78 were found to have insufficient evidence, making up 55.3 percent of outcomes. While the year-to-year number of reports fluctuated, sexual harassment was consistently the most common complaint reported. OSU’s Office of Human Resources policy defines sexual harassment as “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other physical or verbal conduct of a sexual nature” when it meets certain criteria. University spokesman Gary Lewis said the university is dedicated to investigating discrimination and harassment reports. “The Ohio State University is committed to conducting complete and thorough investigations after receiving complaints which involve any type of harassment. This commitment is both a moral imperative consistent with an intellectual community that celebrates individual differences and diversity, as well as a matter of law,” Lewis said in an email.

Report of armed OSU-area landlords aim to work with tenants robbery leaves some concerned KATHLEEN MARTINI Oller reporter

LOGAN HICKMAN Senior Lantern reporter hickman.201@

When I got the safety notice ... I was kind of freaking out because I could have just as easily had class at that time.

After an attempted armed robbery led to the issuing of a public safety Grace Zahn notice last week, Second-year in strategic at least one Ohio communications State student said she felt scared by the incident. University Police issued a public safety notice Friday morning about the incident, which according to a police report, allegedly occurred on West 18th Avenue between McPherson and Smith laboratories at about 9:40 p.m. A female OSU student was approached by three men, according to the notice, one of whom pointed a gun at her while another held his hand over her mouth and patted her down. According to the police report, the suspects attempted to steal the student’s cell phone. All three men were described as black men with braided hair, two of whom were about 5 feet 8 inches tall and the other who was about 5 feet 4 inches. All appeared to weigh somewhere between 150 and 180 pounds. Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs declined to comment on behalf of one of the people listed on the University Police report and referred The Lantern to University Police for further comment. University Police Chief Paul Denton said in an email Sunday there was no new information about the case. Denton said Friday public safety alerts detailing campus crimes aren’t issued frequently. However,

As landlords face complaints of dead rodents in walls and sewage backups at the properties they rent out in the off-campus area, some said they’re working to improve on the service they provide. For Michael Groeniger, property manager at G.A.S. Properties, the secret lies in a more interactive approach. “We’re more hands on. We’re out there a lot,” Groeniger said. “I think our system’s set up pretty solid. When we get a complaint, we’re there that day.” From 2008 through May 2013, G.A.S. Properties had 18 city housing code violations, including a nonworking furnace and dead rodents inside of a wall, according to a City of Columbus Code Enforcement log. The City of Columbus Code Enforcement Division aims to improve quality of life in Columbus areas by implementing and enforcing various city codes, including housing, health and safety codes, according to its website. G.A.S. Properties rents out about 100 units in the campus area and owns all of its properties, Groeniger said. The perception of off-campus housing quality is affected by many things, including the frequent turnover of residents who don’t treat the places as nicely as they would a permanent residence, and older buildings in the campus area, he said. “This isn’t their (students’) home,” he said. “This is where they live for school.” G.A.S. tries to simplify off-campus living for students by quickly returning deposit money, filling work orders quickly and compensating students for inconveniences, such as giving one tenant a month’s rent free when a work order kept her out of her unit for two days, Groeniger said. “We try to make it easier for them and harder on us,” Groeniger said. “That way we can work, and they can just do their school stuff.” Dealing with code violations is a team effort between landlord and tenant, Groeniger said. “We don’t want the city to be against us, so we try to work on it pretty quickly,” he said. “The students usually listen when the city comes around, because they don’t want to be messed with by the

Some students complain about the quality of off-campus housing but some landlords are working to do more to keep their tenants happy. city, let alone us, so it’s usually a pretty hand-inhand situation. It works out pretty well.” He said the city would typically come around for code violations like graffiti or furniture left on the porch. Other landlords have been working to improve their service as well. Buckeye Real Estate has amassed 112 city code violations from 2008 through February 2014, including a mice problem, a sewage backup in a basement and the lack of a smoke detector in a basement, according to the City of Columbus Code Enforcement log. James Lentz, maintenance coordinator at Buckeye Real Estate, said graffiti, trash and interior furniture on the porch are three of the most common, though there were only two reports of graffiti listed on the Code Enforcement log. Lentz said Buckeye Real Estate tries to prevent city involvement as much as possible. Buckeye Real Estate boasts more than 1,000 units in the university area, Lentz said. He said tailoring procedure to fit a certain demographic is important in the leasing industry. “Everything we do is structured specifically to the specific needs of our tenants, who are majority

students,” he said. “Everything is set up around student life and that culture that Ohio State brings. When you’re really geared towards that, it kind of takes care of itself.” As far as complaints, go, Lentz said Buckeye Real Estate tries to take care of problems quickly. “We try to get it taken care of before the city gets involved,” he said. “We have a crew that spends the majority of each day going from property to property cleaning up.” A firm hand can be necessary in keeping up the quality of homes in the university area, Lentz said. “We like to let the residents know what’s expected of them,” he said. “The more strict you are earlier in the lease term, the less you have to deal with it later on. You set the boundaries.” The houses leased by Buckeye Real Estate are privately owned but managed and rented out by the company, so the policies and prices vary from place to place. Oftentimes a tenant’s way of life affects the quality of the unit, Lentz said. “I think it really has to do more with how people live than with the properties themselves,” he said.

campus Gee departure expected to save OSU $4M over 5 years LIZ YOUNG Campus editor

SHELBY LUM / Photo editor

OSU President Emeritus E. Gordon Gee during an interview with The Lantern Oct. 21.

When E. Gordon Gee accepted the West Virginia University presidency, he gave up his rights to an Ohio State office, secretary and $710,000 annually in salary and grant money as his employment with OSU ends July 1. But Gee didn’t give up everything. Former OSU President Gee will be provided lifetime executive health insurance benefits at OSU’s expense after he is no longer employed anywhere else, will be permitted to receive a payout of “any accrued, but unused vacation leave,” will continue to have a split dollar insurance policy and will retain his president emeritus title, according to a letter senior vice president, senior adviser to the president and general counsel Christopher Culley sent Gee, dated March 26 and obtained by The Lantern Friday. Gee will also be able to claim the $800,000 OSU added to his retirement continuation plan as part of his post-retirement contract. Gee’s post-retirement contract with OSU said he was set to remain a tenured member of OSU’s Moritz College of Law faculty and work on researching 21st Century education policy, as well as serve as president emeritus. That contract promised $5.8 million in its terms, to be paid out over a five-year period and including a base salary of $410,000 and an annual grant of $300,000.

The deal also guaranteed Gee an office and a secretary, which he will no longer have after July 1. OSU spokesman Gary Lewis noted the savings of the new deal. “The university (has) estimated that it will save approximately $4 million over the five-year period due to Dr. Gee’s acceptance of the permanent presidency of West Virginia University,” Lewis said in an email Friday. Lewis referred The Lantern to university policy about employee accrual of vacation. That policy states unclassified administrative and professional personnel employed as full-time employees for between three and 10 years earn five sick days and five vacation days per year. Gee is also set to partially continue his work on OSU’s Center for Higher Education Enterprise as a senior fellow, which Culley noted was because of Gee’s own wish to remain affiliated with the center for “scholarly work.” Culley thanked Gee in the letter for his decision to contribute the rest of his $1 million pledge for scholarships to OSU, though he is not contractually obligated, a portion of which will go to the Center for Higher Education Enterprise at Gee’s request. Gee did not respond to an email requesting comment Friday afternoon. Some OSU students said they have mixed feelings about the benefits Gee will still receive. “I think positively and negatively about that. For one thing, he did a lot for Ohio State so I think that makes sense, but also since he (won’t be) retiring

from here, that doesn’t really make sense,” said Erica McCoy, a third-year in biology, about Gee’s guaranteed insurance. Others, though, said Gee deserves to keep his president emeritus title. “He served his position and he did it before he retired and came back, so I think he deserves that,” said Isaac Phillips, a third-year in math. Gee retired from OSU July 1, days after controversial remarks he made at a Dec. 5, 2012, Athletics Council meeting became public. Comments about Notre Dame and the SEC in particular brought national attention. In December, Gee was appointed president of WVU while it searched for a new permanent leader, but in March, it came out that Gee was a candidate for that position. He was officially appointed the new president soon after and is set to begin July 1, until which point he will remain on unpaid leave from OSU, but his two-year WVU contract details had not been finalized yet at the time of his acceptance. His salary as interim president at WVU is $450,000. Gee began his career of leading higher education institutions at WVU in 1981. He was the dean of WVU’s law school prior to his four-year stint as president. Karly Ratzenberger contributed to this article.

OSU Peace Corps volunteers to begin journey of ‘impact’ 7,200 volunteers and trainees are in the program, with 65 host countries involved. Volunteers typically serve for two years after training and are provided with a housing and living stipend through the program, as well as complete dental and medical care during service and the cost of travel to and from the country, according to the Peace Corps website. Some types of federal student loans are also eligible for partial cancellation benefits or deferments through the program, and after returning, the program provides $7,425 before taxes to help volunteers transition back into everyday life. Baker, the current president of the OSU Peace Corps Club, said part of the celebration is set to honor this year’s Peace Corps nominees.

said reports found to have sufficient evidence might have the legal standing to go to court, but individuals do not have to go through the university. They could instead file a charge with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or some other organizations. The EEOC does not track specific university workplace discrimination, but it does keep records of workplace discrimination by state. In fiscal year 2013, the EEOC received 3,071 discrimination reports from Ohio. Of those, 815 — or 26.5 percent — were sexual discrimination reports, said Joseph Olivares, Washington, D.C.-based EEOC public affairs specialist. Frederick Gittes of the Columbus-based Gittes Law Group said because the university’s data only represents cases reported to human resources, it is unlikely that those numbers represent the extent of harassment cases. Gittes said it is more likely that employees circumvented the university, going straight to a third-party organizations.

“I am sure there are at least some instances of discrimination reported outside the university,” Gittes said. “(The numbers) probably don’t reflect the full number of people who reported discrimination.” Even if all of the reports — both those made inside and outside of the university — were accounted for, the number of reports would likely still not represent the extent of discrimination or harassment at OSU because many cases go unreported, Gittes said. “Many employees are afraid to report discrimination for fear of retaliation,” he said, adding that sexual harassment cases are chief among “underreported” cases. Harassment cases that do make it to court might be difficult to win, as the plaintiff has to persuade coworkers to testify and show that the alleged harassment was an “intentional act.” “It’s an uphill battle for every plaintiff in this situation,” Cason-Adams said, adding that the burden of proof is on the plaintiff.

basis for safety, security and cleanliness issues.”

“I’m not going to say that every place down here is really nice and recently remodeled. There’s certainly a range. You get what you pay for in terms of that … I think the perception (of poor quality in the university area) comes with how people live.” Despite its many units and tenants, Buckeye Real Estate works to act swiftly and efficiently in the maintenance of its properties, but the job can become difficult when residents aren’t forthcoming with damages and maintenance issues, Lentz said. “It’s always in our best interest to do timely repairs,” he said. “If I’m made aware of something, I’m going to do my best to get it serviced as quickly as possible. A lot of things just go unreported.” In comparison, NorthSteppe Realty, which owns about 100 different dwellings in the OSU campus area, had accrued more than 220 housing violations since 2008, including more than 40 since January 2013 and at least five in 2014, according to the City of Columbus Code Enforcement log. Among those violations were cockroach infestations and excessive trash buildup. NorthSteppe made some changes to ensure the quality of its houses since a stranger was found to be living at a house on 12th Avenue in Fall Semester 2013, said Mike Stickney, broker of NorthSteppe Realty, in an email Jan. 13. “We have made policy changes,” Stickney said. “We are inspecting our properties on a quarterly

Jacob Dornhecker, a third-year in electrical engineering, said Buckeye Real Estate runs a tight ship with the properties it manages. “They handle everything very professionally and are strict about things like the appearance of the front yard and turning in different forms,” said Dornhecker, who lives on 19th Avenue and rents from Buckeye Real Estate, adding that the company is much better and more timely in responding to maintenance requests than other agencies he’s leased through. Though the prices are a little high for him, Dornhecker said he would rent from the company again. “They are a well-organized agency and easy to work with,” he said. G.A.S. Properties is also ahead of the pack for leasing agencies, said Nick Wilker, a fourth-year in agricultural business. “(My apartment is) good compared to others I’ve seen,” said Wilker, who lives in an apartment near the corner Lane and Indianola avenues and rents from G.A.S. Properties. The best way to combat the sometimes-negative perception of university housing is to treat the customer well, Lentz said. “It sounds cliché, but we really just try to provide the best services we can to our tenants,” Lentz said.

Robbery from 1A he reminded students, staff and faculty to be vigilant when walking at night. “As the weather turns warmer, as it has in the last few weeks, criminals often take this time to prey upon individuals,” Denton said. The notice was the third issued by University Police since the beginning of Spring Semester. All three crimes, two armed robberies and a rape, reportedly occurred on campus. Grace Zahn, a second-year in strategic

communication, said she spends a lot of time in the area so the notice scared her. “When I got the safety notice, I was kind of surprised and kind of scared because I have class in McPherson so I was kind of freaking out because I could have just as easily had class at that time,” she said. “I feel like Ohio State does a good job of trying to keep campus safe. If you’re walking around at night, you should probably try to be with another person. If I was by myself walking around at night, I would be a little nervous.”

campus Travels from 1A Aside from the two presidents, university officials who racked up the most travel expenses include Joseph Steinmetz and Geoff Chatas.

Executive Vice President and Provost Joseph Steinmetz Steinmetz made at least 29 trips from August 2011 to September 2013 and received $23,472 in reimbursement from the university. He traveled to places like Chicago, Miami and Sacramento, Calif. Records show the purposes for Steinmetz’s trips varied, including promoting OSU’s presence, peer networking and alumni relations. In addition, many trips were related to seeking potential donors. Former Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp said he supports university administrators traveling to promote OSU’s image and seek potential donors. “I think that (OSU does) an excellent job at raising money,” said Stepp, a fourth-year in public affairs. “From time to time, that means going out and meeting with constituents, meeting with donors. My belief is an expenditure like that is worth it if you’re getting a good return on your investment.”

Senior Vice President for Optimization and Integration and Medical Center Chief Transformation Officer Geoff Chatas During his time as chief financial officer, Chatas took at least 25 OSU-expensed trips between July 2011 and January 2013, receiving $19,194 in reimbursements. That included international trips to London, Iceland, Paris and Quebec City. Chatas’ current role, which he moved into March 1, is new at the university. He previously served as OSU chief financial officer and senior vice president of business and finance, titles he had held since February 2010. Though the payment request status for all of his trips was approved, three of Chatas’ trips show partial exceptions to his initial requests for reimbursement, meaning he might not have gotten reimbursed for the total amount that he spent. There was a reimbursement exception for a trip he took in September 2011, described as an “MIT visit,” which was missing a dinner receipt. A January 2012 trip to San Francisco for a health care conference shows six missing receipts and a personal meal that was $144 more than the amount the university allows to be reimbursed. In addition, reimbursement was submitted after 90 days for a June trip to Aspen, Colo., for a higher education forum and the cost of the trip was 20 percent more than the original estimated total cost. The Office of the Controller sets per diem rates for meals and incidental expenses for OSU employees. Controlling travel expenses this way gives

employees a daily allowance for what they are permitted to spend. The rate varies depending on specific cities, states and countries. OSU follows per diem rates established by the U.S. General Services Administration, according to the Office of the Controller website. Employees can spend 25 percent of the per diem rate on breakfast, 25 percent on lunch and 50 percent on dinner. If an employee goes over the permissible amount, the difference is not reimbursed, Lewis said. If an employee reports travel expenses more than 90 days after the trip they might not be reimbursed “depending upon any extenuating circumstances.” In addition to the frequency of trips Chatas made, he stayed in luxury hotels and flew first class. The Dayton Daily News reported that in February 2012, Chatas flew to Florida on OSU’s private jet and stayed at the five-star Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Fla. In July 2011, he also stayed in a five-star hotel in Manhattan, expensed by OSU. Vedder said while some travel is necessary for someone in Chatas’ position, the level he has reached is excessive. “I don’t know why a CFO of a domestic American university needs to do very much international travel,” Vedder said. Two other administrators also received five figure reimbursements.

Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Senior Adviser to the President Christopher Culley Culley received $14,571 in compensation for at least 13 trips taken between July 2011 and April 2013. This included a payment of about $152 for attending the 2012 Gator Bowl “as a representative of the university.” Culley and Chatas traveled to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Mumbai, India, in July 2012 for a “compliance review” of the China Gateway and India Gateway. However, a trip itinerary shows a majority of time budgeted for meeting with alumni and potential fundraising and about six and a half hours scheduled to actually be at the Global Gateway offices. OSU opened a Gateway office in Mumbai, in March 2012 and the China Gateway in June 2010 but has been working to expand that office ever since. The pair made the trip “at the request of the university Board of Trustees Audit and Compliance Committee,” Lewis said. “The goal was to review the compliance and audit functions of those offices and to obtain a firsthand account of university’s operations and activities there. “Recognizing the cost associated with such a trip, they sought to maximize their time there by also meeting with a number of key donors, alumni, business associates and friends of the university to

further advance the university’s interests in those two cities (Shanghai and Mumbai) of strategic importance to Ohio State.” Chatas was reimbursed $8,594 for the trip and Culley was reimbursed $5,024. The trip included an OSU-funded alumni cocktail reception in Beijing that cost $2,808 and an $4,254 alumni event in Hong Kong. An itinerary for Chatas was not provided. However, one for Culley shows that he flew first class from Chicago to Beijing where he spent about a day and a half before flying business class to Mumbai. Chatas and Culley stayed in luxury hotels in Beijing and Mumbai, that cost $220 and $365 per night, respectively. While in Mumbai, Culley met with an Indian government official and the purpose for the visit was a “possible fundraising angle.” Culley spent two hours at the Global Gateway India office, according to his itinerary. Culley spent about a day in the city before flying business class to Hong Kong. While in Hong Kong, Chatas and Culley stayed at the Mandarin Oriental hotel. The hotel’s website boats 28 celebrity “fans” of the hotel including actors Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey and Liam Neeson. The hotel cost $592 per night. While in Hong Kong, Culley attended a dinner with Fisher College of Business students to “demonstrate support to study abroad groups.” The following day, Culley met with endowment fund managers before flying business class to Shanghai. There, Culley’s itinerary showed 4 1/2 hours at the Gateway office for the “Gateway annual audit.” After a free day for “personal time and tours” in Shanghai and an OSU alumni reception, Culley flew first class back to the U.S.

Executive Dean and Vice Provost for the College of Arts and Sciences David Manderscheid Manderscheid received $10,085 for at least 10 trips taken between July 2013 and December 2013. Manderscheid’s travels included a $423 expense while attending the Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis to meet with potential donors. Manderscheid was named executive dean and vice provost for the College of Arts and Sciences after Steinmetz, who held the post before Manderscheid, was appointed to provost. Steinmetz’s promotion in turn followed the November 2012 announcement that Alutto was stepping down as provost.

Senior Vice President for Administration and Planning Jay Kasey While most administrators’ trips were tied to promoting OSU’s image, some related to more concrete university logistics.

Kasey was reimbursed $2,448 for eight trips made between October 2011 and April 2013 related to the North Residential District Transformation. The locations were not listed for all trips, but included Cleveland and Philadelphia. The North Residential District Transformation project is a $370 million renovation to North Campus that aims to add 3,200 additional beds through the construction of 11 new buildings as part of OSU’s plan to require second-year students to live on campus starting in fall 2016. The project broke ground in August 2013 and is scheduled to be completed in fall 2016. These trips for the project “occurred over a critical development period” in the “initial design phase,” Lewis said, during which Kasey “provided input and direction to ensure the project progressed appropriately. “The travel associated with this project included a benchmarking review of other universities’ best practices as well as on-site inspection of the finished product on which the potential design teams had previously worked.”

Potential Impact Vedder said he’s concerned about the amount and cost of travel by university administrators, especially at a time when many institutions are seeing tuition increases. Vedder said excessive travel, in addition to large salaries and other perks for senior administrators, represent a shift in universities losing sight of their primary mission which should be “to disseminate knowledge.” John Curtis, director of research and public policy for the American Association of University Professors, agreed that in some cases, paying for top university officials travel “represents a misplaced priority.” “There would be some concern with the growing number of administrative positions that the travel may be just to justify the work that administrators are doing and taking away from that fundamental mission of education,” he said. A tuition freeze was enacted for in-state undergraduate students for the 2013-14 school year, after tuition rose 3.5 percent for the 2012-13 academic year. Lewis did not immediately respond Friday about whether tuition would be raised for the 2014-15 academic year. While many students are graduating with increasing amounts of loan debt, some experts in higher education see a disconnect with the amount of money universities are investing in non-instructional staff, be it for travel or in salaries and bonuses. “It seems to be a complete misplaced priority to be investing in just a few senior administration at a time when the spending on the academic program is so tight,” Curtis said. This story is the fifth in a series about Ohio State’s administrators, including travel expenses and performance reviews over the last two years. The series was made possible by the generosity of Ohio State and The Lantern alumna Patty Miller.

Japanese culture celebrated at OSU Karmin goes from classical training to Columbus stage

REGINA BONFIGLIO Lantern reporter People from all different ethnicities joined together Saturday in the Ohio Union to celebrate one thing: Japanese culture. Saturday was the ninth annual Japanese Spring Festival, an event presented by the Ohio State Japanese Student Organization, with the purpose of showcasing traditional and modern Japanese culture. More than 250 people arrived at the Ohio Union Performance Hall for the event, which was filled with booths in the form of a U-shape with a cluster of tables in the center where visitors sat using chopsticks and ate Japanese food from the local Tensuke Market. With careful bites, people filled their mouths with pieces of bean bread, cream bread, melon bread and bites from their bento boxes. While their fingers gripped their chopsticks, their eyes were directed toward the stage. KAYDEE LANEY / Lantern photographer

The Performances As people ate at tables and gathered around the surrounding booths, the festival featured performances that mixed conventional and contemporary styles. The first performer stood alone on the stage, dressed in a long emerald green kimono. She performed a traditional kimono fan dance, moving with delicacy and grace to the music, a small yet commanding figure dancing elegantly on the stage. While the first performance set a tone of tradition, the following performances illustrated the diversity of traditional and modern Japanese culture. The performances ranged from traditional dances and various martial arts performances to hip-hop dances, an a capella group and a rock ‘n’ roll performance by The Sake Hut Basement Jam, the Japanese Student Organizations’s own rock band. One performance that captivated the audience was a group of eight small children as they demonstrated a style of martial arts called Kendo. “It’s kind of a type of Japanese fencing,” explained JSO member Austin Larger, as he turned facing the stage, watching their performance. The children stood in a line on the stage dressed in bogu, or protective armor, next to their instructors. First joined by synchronized strokes of their large Shinai, a rod made from bamboo, they then demonstrated their skills by charging at their instructors and using their Shinai to strike the instructors’ protective helmet or “men.” “The most points are earned if you aim for the head,” explained Larger, a fourth-year in computer science and engineering and Japanese. The Interactive Activities In addition to the traditional food and variety of performances, the free event offered more than 12 different stations for visitors to make origami, play traditional Japanese games, purchase gifts, artwork and jewelry, write in Shodo (Japanese calligraphy) and try on a variety of luxuriant silk kimonos. Columbus Kimono representatives displayed their collection and demonstrated how to dress in a kimono. Attendees then had the opportunity to wear a kimono and pose for a photograph. “It’s awesome they have people here to help you wear them. It’s a pretty challenging process to try to do by yourself,” said Jordin Scheen, a fourth-year in Japanese and construction systems management. At the northwest corner of the room, women dressed in embroidered silk kimonos served green tea, or matcha.

The People JSO is not exclusive to Japanese students — it is comprised of students from various ethnicities including Indian, European and Hispanic decent, said Kavya Gopalakrishnan, a JSO member and a first-year in animal sciences. “I’m actually part-Hawaiian,” said Camille Dubois, one of the co-presidents.

Karmin boasts a new, uncharted model in the pop genre. The blueprints of the duo in itself, consisting of Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, aren’t unique. Music has exhibited the power of the dyad for decades from the likes of famous twosomes Simon and Garfunkel, Sonny and Cher and Johnny and June. However, the Top 40 doesn’t exactly embrace the concept of a two-person group. In fact, in the sea of solo acts and boy bands amongst Billboard’s pop-induced ranks, the only pair in practice is Macklemore and his inconspicuous other half, Ryan Lewis. “That’s the thing — there really isn’t a model for (musical duos),” Noonan said in an interview with The Lantern before Karmin’s show at the Newport Saturday. “You know, Ryan Lewis … he’s more of just straight production. He’s never really coming out (singing). He just comes out (and says), ‘Put your hands up.’” Noonan admits his role is a bit similar, though. Since Karmin broke out, Heidemann has graced the cover of “Rolling Stone” and saw most of the camera time in the group’s “Saturday Night Live” performance in 2012. During Saturday’s show, Noonan’s role was much the same. He was more often seen providing backup, behind the keyboard or his royal blue trombone, while Heidemann took control of the melodies that make Karmin famous. However, Karmin’s new album and first LP “Pulses,” which released March 25 and was the main focus of the duo’s 16-song set Saturday night, displays Noonan’s vocal prowess, notably taking the chorus of the album’s title track and opening what could possibly be Karmin’s new single, “Hate to Love You.” Not surprisingly, Noonan sings with as much technicality and soul as his better half, which makes sense, given the couple’s similar credentials. Hailing from opposite sides of the country, Heidemann and Noonan met in the middle at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. “The plan was, for me, coming from Nebraska, I wanted to be like an R&B superstar, and Nick came from a small town in Maine and he wanted to be a trombonist,” Heidemann said. Noonan and Heidemann took their classical training from the esteemed mix of musicians at Berklee and threw it into the mediocrity of YouTube’s grab bag of talent soon after graduation. In a period of a year or two, the duo covered around 14 songs — mostly of the hip-hop, R&B genre. The duo’s claim to fame, though, was in their melodic rendition of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now,” which has received more than 89 million views on YouTube, an appearance on “Ellen” and a nod at the end of Karmin’s Saturday night set. Karmin’s concert Saturday probably received views only in the hundreds, but Heidemann’s ability to rap and enunciate as clearly and quickly as Busta Rhyme can spit took

BAAM, an Asian-American a capella group at OSU, performs at the 9th Annual Japanese Spring Festival at the Ohio Union April 19. Guests were taught how to correctly receive the opaque matcha following the basics of the Japanese tea ceremony. The process involves taking the cup, or chawan, in the right hand while resting it upon the palm of the left hand, leaning one’s head to bow once, turning the chawan clockwise two times with the right hand, sippig, wiping the part of the chawan where one’s lips touched with the right hand then turning it counterclockwise and returning it to the host. In addition to these many booths set up in the hall, JSO’s poster greeted those who entered and embodied the spirit of the Spring Festival through its words: “Our events are made not only to facilitate diversity but also friendship between all members through active participation.”

Ohio State tradition, winter blues balance each other out in overall review of Columbus SHELBY LUM Photo editor “Zooming In” is a weekly series in which Photo editor Shelby Lum provides her insight. It’s been a good go Columbus, really. But I think I owe you a bit of honesty. Monday is my last day of undergraduate classes at THE Ohio State, and it has been quite a run to get here. But four years in a city (and state for that matter) that I had never thought about until I received my acceptance letter has had both ups and downs. So as my classes come to a close and my (hopefully) passing grades are posted for one last time on Carmen, I can’t help but wonder how well Ohio did over the years. When my thin-skinned, sun-loving Georgia self plopped down in Columbus four years ago, I didn’t know what I was in for. Rumors of the cold northern winters had circulated in my town for years, but please, winters that could reach well below negative 10 degrees (or well below negative 20 for that matter)? That’s just silly, who would choose to live there? Oh right, me. I happened to pick a lovely day in late March to tour campus as a starry-eyed high school senior and also happened to see the school at an optimal time: with the least amount of construction. William

Oxley Thompson Library had been gutted and then beautified, the Ohio Union was celebrating its finish and the orange construction cone population was at an all-time low around campus. But alas, Columbus, you aren’t always that great. What my energetic, red-headed tour guide didn’t mention as he skipped backwards over campus sidewalks was that the return of the traffic cones was the next episode, gray skies were all the fad and the fact that I was wearing a jacket on a day in the high 60s meant I was doomed from the beginning. My first day of classes, I asked my roommate what a “Sloopy” was — and she laughed at me. Four years later, she still does. I didn’t know that winter blues were a real thing until I contracted it my freshman year, that E. Gordon Gee was basically a celebrity and it wasn’t weird for him to show up at random parties, that CABS buses will not slow down when you cross the street or that it’s totally in the realm of sanity to jump into a nearly frozen lake with half the student body one night. (My dad mocked me when I ran the idea of the Mirror Lake Jump by him my first go round). There were a lot of things missing from my first tour. Because really, what tour guide can convey how homesick you will get the first time you get the flu in the dorms? Ohio wasn’t always easy and it wasn’t

always the most consistent friend. But while I gripe about the weather and the odd traditions, these things are what made every day as an undergrad here so very OSU-esque. Few schools can claim such a constant persona. Watching TBDBITL come down the ramp is impossible to describe to an outsider, because you have to be there. You can only understand the OSU Marching Band when in tandem with the roar of thousands of your best friends, bundled up to watch the scarlet and gray jerseys down below. Camaraderie reaches a zenith when a stranger’s arm comes around yours for “Carmen Ohio,” and I have never appreciated spring quite as much as I have here, because Ohio really makes you work for that warm weather. Four years ago I didn’t know what a buckeye was apart from the peanut butter chocolate treats. So what has Columbus shown me? That guess what, life isn’t always sunshine and moms can’t always be around when you want them to be, and dining hall food isn’t all that glamorous. As a total though, it is pretty glamorous. It’s home. It’s what I have learned to love, because love isn’t always that easy — and loving Columbus at times is far from it. Grade: B+ (because I just can’t bring myself to give you an “A” when it snows in April)

Karmin from 5A the crowd’s noise level up to the highest of decibels. The Chris Brown cover is far from the only place Heidemann exhibited such fast articulation. Her talent, something that stemmed from listening to Jay-Z on Mariah Carey singles in her younger years, she said, is heard in many — if not the majority — of “Pulse’s” tracks. Heidemann’s “vocal percussion,” as Noonan calls it, has since become a fixture in Karmin’s identity, in part because of some convincing by Noonan, she said. “For rap, you can say a lot more … there’s more energy to it,” Noonan said. “You have a lot more freedom, and you have a lot more time to say something. With singing … it’s four minutes later and you only have (sung) three words.” “I feel you can be a little more irreverent,” Heidemann added. “You can just say whatever is on your mind, where when you put it to a melody, it’s more formal.” A lot was said by way of rap in Karmin’s Saturday performance of “Acapella,” a song that narrates the balance of searching for a man with heart and a man with money. Noonan and Heidemann were perhaps at their most energetic during the song, dancing in each other’s faces the entire time. In real life, though, Heidemann’s search for a man has been over for awhile with the duo’s recent engagement, and the couple’s joint musical venture in Karmin keeps the two constantly in each other’s faces. “This is the thing that sucks is we are always together. Always together. And it’s like, business, career, relationship, it’s all in one, so we have to take days off from each other,” Heidemann said. “We were trying to think of another couple that is in the same situation, and I can’t think of one. I thought Beyoncé and Jay-Z, but they’re not in the same band.”

Heidemann admitted each other’s constant company provides the lyricism for “a good amount” of the material written on “Pulses.” The album’s title in and of itself derives from the ups and downs the two experienced while producing the album, she said during Saturday’s concert before belting the duo’s conventional ballad, “Neon Love.” There are very few times Heidemann and Noonan are separate in both physicality and song. However, Heidemann said her more R&B focused musical style differs from Noonan’s jazz roots. “We joke about this, but it might actually happen someday, doing like a ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’ thing, like OutKast had. The two members each did one album, and then they sold it together,” Heidemann said. Together, though, Heidemann and Noonan live up to their band’s name, which means “song” in Latin. Ending the set with “Brokenhearted” and Heidemann’s signature “cheerio” at the end of the song’s chorus (which she said she believes provided the song a “double punch” to become the hit that it is), the two took off, planning to take Sunday off before their Cleveland show Monday. Karmin’s model for their duo works, and Noonan said he knew what exactly the model is. However, he admitted to needing more time for he and Heidemann to translate it for their audience and fans. “There’s not really a (preexisting) model for it, you know, which is great because it’s new,” Noonan said. “But a lot of times, people have a hard time understanding what it is at first, because, there isn’t a (comparison). You know, ‘Is it like Katy Perry? I don’t understand.’ So, in that aspect, it’s challenging, but we like that.”

Dubois, a third-year in Japanese and world economy and business, said she came to OSU because of its incredible Japanese and East Asian programs after traveling to Japan in high school. “JSO has provided a really great environment for people like me to explore Japanese culture and be connected to opportunities to share that passion with others on campus,” Dubois said in an email. Gopalakrishnan commented on her connection to JSO as she stood wearing a bright blue “happi” for her later performance in a Japanese traditional fisherman’s dance titled JSO-Ran Bushi, which she learned at a JSO workshop earlier in the year. Gopalakrishnan, originally from India, said JSO is “like a family.” For Scheen, his decision to join JSO marked a leap from the anti-Japanese sentiment of his grandmother’s time to the more accepting world today. Scheen, wearing a summer kimono called a jinbei, explained that he is one-fourth Japanese and said he was the one who really brought Japanese culture to his family. “My grandmother came to the U.S. after World War II,” he said. Scheen added that his grandmother changed her name and broke off connections to her traditional culture.

Culture is not a physical object. If people choose to neglect it, it is impossible to pass down to the next generation. Nika Zhang Co-president of OSU’s Japanese Student Organization

“She was embarrassed about speaking the language and considered herself 100 percent American.” Nika Zhang, co-president of JSO and a fourth-year in human resources, said the event was a good experience for people who are interested in Japanese to learn more about the culture and for exchange students to talk to more local students and make friends. The performances, food, conversations and activities of the festival brought a diverse array of people together to learn from each other and do one thing, Zhang said: “to learn the importance of preserving the traditions.” “I think it’s our responsibility to help preserve the culture,” she said. “Culture is not a physical object. If people choose to neglect it, it is impossible to pass down to the next generations.”

studentvoice Drive to succeed shouldn’t mean sacrificing important moments campus columnist

It was Sunday morning as I sat in my pajamas on the couch accompanied only by my notes, laptop and emptied mug of coffee, my second of the day. The mug, shaped like the head of a Hawaiian totem poll, stared back at me with a mocking grimace stretched across its brown ceramic face. I was alone, stressed, and maddeningly staring down my antagonistic coffee cup. regina bonfiglio It was Easter morning, and it starkly contrasted every other Easter morning I’ve experienced for the past 21 years. Where were my sisters, barging into my room asking what I was going to wear to the Sunday morning service? Where was my father, with his disheveled hair, blue shorts and gray Ohio State T-shirt singing through the halls, stopping only to tease us about getting ready on time, with his playful smile reserved especially for holiday mornings? Where was my mother, already dressed and ready to go with her famous Easter morning breakfast casserole cooling on the kitchen table, next to our Easter bags, an annual guaranteed pack of gum, necessary toiletries and a few pieces of chocolate scattered at the bottom? Where was my 12-year-old dog Sam, waiting at the base of the stairs, tail wagging with his chocolate brown beagle eyes begging to be petted and smothered in kisses? Where were my loving grandparents, in their 80s, sitting at the table laughing, telling stories of past Easters together?

Where was I? Not at home, but instead in my house in Columbus. Becoming the only person in the history of our family to skip Easter. I know that not everyone who celebrates the holiday, can, or even bothers to go home. And I know that this year, I was not the only one torn between the upcoming final exams, final papers and final projects. I know that for some who visited family, they were torn between responsibilities and desire — their palms were sweating as they greeted relatives, haunted by the voice at the back of their mind saying, “you’re wasting time, you’re going to fail, time is running out.” But that’s when it hit me. We might be young with our futures weighing heavily on our shoulders, upon our final grades and our GPAs. We might place the academic, the logical and the “right” plans above our family traditions and get-togethers. We are so preoccupied with our limited amount of time and forget about our life’s limited time itself. We think we’ll have next year, plenty of years to come to make up for past separations or absences. I’m not saying that there is a right answer or a correct way to place values on time well spent. I think this is what makes the decision challenging for us students, heaped with heavy workloads at the end of the semester. Of course, plan ahead. I am most likely guilty of underestimating how much planning this requires. But whether it’s friends from home, siblings, pets, parents, grandparents, your faith or simple traditions that you miss and sacrifice, when do these things become a priority and when do they become a luxury? Although we might be proud of our grades at the end of the semester, of our hard work and sacrifices, and the opportunities we

receive as a result, when do we stop to think of the value of these sacrifices, of how much could change from one year to the next? The truth is, time is running out. Whether it’s the time before finals or the times we can make to be with our loved ones. I feel it is important to do everything in our power to make time for those people we care about. Because even if we think we have plenty of chances in the future, if we think we have all the time in the world, I think it is important to take ourselves out of the equation and ask ourselves, “how much time do they have?” Frankly, missing Easter gave me a well-deserved slap in the face. Where do I draw that line? Where do I stop sacrificing friendships and relationships in order to get ahead? Looking back on college, are we going to remember the inconveniences of multitasking? Or are we going to remember the savored trips home, the holidays, the ridiculous or even rebellious memories, and the great conversations on the Oval with friends? The last few years we are running across the bridge from childhood to the adult world. The fact is we are running across that bridge, it is a fast journey. Who do you want to be walking on that bridge with? And who will be there waiting for you on the other side? In an ideal world, the goal wouldn’t be a number, a title, a GPA determining your worth. The true value would be of your life, your relationships and the memories you make along the way. Don’t skip those chances. Don’t sacrifice those friendships. Don’t forget to enjoy the ride. It’s hard, but I think it’s worth sitting down and thinking about at the end of our lives, when we do not have any more time or room for excuses, how do we want to be remembered? What parts of our lives will we remember in the end?

Women on a quest for ‘dream guy’ need to re-evaluate, love themselves first chloe aparcedo For The Lantern Lately, I’ve found myself reflecting upon the relationships in my life, thinking about that great love many people have spoken about since Romeo and Juliet. We talk about love with our girlfriends, we see love portrayed in the media, and wonder if one day we will ever be lucky enough to come across that great love. Recently, I read an inspiring piece of advice in “Cosmopolitan Magazine” on love and relationships that really got me thinking. In the excerpt, New York Times Best Selling author Gabrielle Bernstein recommended, “Make a list of things you want to bring to a relationship … too often we think about what we want the other person to be, but don’t think about

ourselves.” Ladies, we must first understand the importance of loving one’s self to bring out those dream girls from within our souls. Today, many women are out there searching for that great love with their specific list of qualities they look for in that “dream guy.” Unfortunately, we do not think about what just might be the most important key in finding this love we all immensely desire — finding ourselves. We tend to solely focus on what we want our dream guy to bring to the table and neglect the qualities we want to bring to a relationship. Do we want to bring: passion, spontaneity, kindness, honesty, ambition or how about maturity? Ladies, you might just get back what you put forward. For example, I often hear from my girlfriends and see for myself how immature guys act. However, sometimes these complaints are because of our own immature actions.

This search for love is less about finding the qualities we desire in our dream guy, and more about finding those qualities we desire in our dream self. The only person you can control is yourself, so why not take advantage? Think about and write down the qualities we, ourselves want to bring to a relationship. We shouldn’t be out there searching and wishing for that dream guy to come along that checks off every little box on the list, or even worse, settling for a guy we know is less than we deserve. A lady’s intuition almost always knows when she is settling for less than she deserves. However, she ignores that gut feeling, thinking that this may just be as good as it gets. That “dream guy” portrayed through our deceptive media with chiseled cheek bones and deep set brown eyes that volunteers at the local animal shelter does not exist, but you do. Love is not like all those cliché movies where

Rachel McAdams falls in love with the seemingly perfect Ryan Gosling and they then live happily ever after. We have these wrong ideas in this “quest” for love. This is the 21st Century, we do not need a man to fulfill our desires and happiness. We are all capable of becoming the best versions of ourselves and reaching our greatest potential. Love begins within you. It starts with first loving yourself so you can really, truly and deeply love others to the best of your ability. If we find our dream girl within ourselves, maybe one day we will have the chance to experience that great love. A love we can share all our passions with and encourages us to be even more amazing than we already are.

Men’s tennis claims 9th straight B1G crown kane anderson Lantern reporter For the ninth consecutive season, the No. 1-ranked Ohio State men’s tennis team took home the Big Ten’s outright regular season title and finished the conference season unbeaten. Playing at home in their final two regular season matches, the Buckeyes (27-3, 11-0) defeated Iowa 7-0 Friday to clinch the title, then defeated Nebraska, 6-1, Sunday to finish the conference season unscathed and give redshirt-senior Peter Kobelt a win on Senior Day. “It was tough (at first) being the only senior on a team full of freshmen, essentially,” Kobelt said Sunday after the match, holding the Big Ten Championship trophy tightly. “To be able to go out of here with a Big Ten title and five rings for me is amazing … It has been a really unique experience and I wouldn’t do it any other way.” OSU coach Ty Tucker was all smiles as he joined in on the celebration after the Senior Day victory. “It’s nice. You get the hats and the shirts and the big trophy,” Tucker said. “Obviously we feel good … It’s fun.” Sunday against the Cornhuskers, (12-14, 3-8) the match was played at the outdoor courts for the first time this season. The Buckeyes’ home advantage still held true despite the slight change in venue, with the team extending their NCAA record home winning streak to 189 matches. Redshirt-junior Kevin Metka and freshman Herkko Pollanen were off first in doubles after defeating Nebraska sophomores Dusty Boyer and Marc Herrmann convincingly, 8-1. Kobelt and redshirt-freshman Ralf Steinbach clinched the doubles point shortly after with an 8-5 win against Nebraska senior Brandon Videtich and sophomore Bradford Zitsch. Redshirt-junior Hunter Callahan got the first win in singles, 6-1, 6-1, against Zitsch and redshirt-sophomore

Chris Diaz was right on his heels with a 6-2, 6-0, victory against Nebraska senior Tom Blackwell to put the Buckeyes one win away from clinching the match. Kobelt — as he so often has this season — answered the call, defeating Boyer 6-1, 6-1. It was the sixth time the senior clinched match point for the Buckeyes this season alone, and was his 250th combined win of his collegiate career. Pollanen lost to Herrmann 6-1, 3-6, 1-0 (10-4) to give the Cornhuskers their lone win of the day, but Metka and Steinbach both won in singles to give the Buckeyes another dominant win heading into postseason play. With the outright conference title for the taking Friday evening against the Hawkeyes (9-14, 1-10), the Buckeyes wasted little time clinching their crown. Kobelt and Steinbach put away redshirt-senior Brian

Alden and senior Michael Swank, 8-2, and Pollanen and Buckeye freshman Marko Goles-Babic beat seniors Chase Tomlins and Joey White, 8-6, to give the Buckeyes the early 1-0 advantage. Kobelt was off first in singles play, defeating senior Jonas Dierckx 6-1, 6-2. Goles-Babic won 6-2, 6-3, against Swank, and Callahan clinched the title after dumping sophomore Dominic Patrick 6-0, 6-2. Pollanen and Diaz won in straight sets and Steinbach won in three to give the Buckeyes the sweep. Next up, the Buckeyes head to East Lansing, Mich. to play in the Big Ten Tournament hosted by Michigan State University. The tournament is scheduled to take place all day April 24.

OSU baseball wins series against Murray State

Freshman outfielder Ronnie Dawson rounds the base path during a game against Murray State April 19 at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU lost, 7-5.

In the midst of a slump on the field, the Ohio State baseball team decided to loosen things up in order to get back on track. The Buckeyes were playing tight in their losses to West Virginia and Ball State earlier in the week, redshirt-junior first baseman Josh Dezse said. So to loosen players up and help boost team morale, the coaches decided to have the team play wiffle ball during practice Thursday, which Dezse said helped against Murray State this weekend. “It was nice to just have fun all of us together, I know we’ve been grinding lately. Obviously losing is not fun so that was really nice to do,” Dezse said. “Coming into this weekend, it was the mentality that we’re just playing wiffle ball, we’re out playing a game with each other and it was nice to see us play loose, play fast and play fun.” The Buckeyes (23-18, 4-8) got themselves on the winning side over the weekend, taking two out of three against the Murray State Racers (17-20, 9-9) at Bill Davis Stadium. After cruising to a 3-1 victory Friday, the Buckeyes lost 7-5 Saturday and had to fight to win rubber game Sunday, ultimately winning, 7-3. After Sunday’s win, OSU coach Greg Beals said the team entered the weekend with a new mentality that stayed with it throughout the series. “I liked how our team played today, it was a

game that was kind of a must-win situation for us,” Beals said. “When you look at it one walk, no errors, when you look at our team when we do that and force our opponent to get everything on their own, we’re going to be tough to beat.” In Sunday’s game, OSU’s starting pitcher sophomore Jake Post threw three scoreless innings before being pulled because of a back injury. “We’re not exactly sure what it is but we’re erring on the side of caution and got him out of there and started some treatment on him and hopefully we’ve got him back for next weekend,” Beals said. Offensively, freshman outfielder Ronnie Dawson notched his team-high 17th multihit game of the season Sunday. One of those hits appeared to be a two-run homerun in the first inning, however Dawson overran redshirtsophomore shortstop Nick Sergakis who was standing near first base in case the ball was caught. Dawson was given an RBI-single because Sergakis still scored. Dawson attributed the team’s success against Murray State to “just having fun.” “Everyone was like, ‘Let’s just slow down and go back to the way we were playing at the beginning of the season,’” Dawson said. “We were just having fun down in Florida, everyone is laughing and dancing and just having a great time and that’s what we started doing again.”

Late man-down goal gives Crew 1-1 tie against D.C. United Andrew todd-smith Lantern reporter The outcome didn’t look good at Crew Stadium. For most of the Columbus Crew’s game Saturday night against D.C. United, the team trailed and couldn’t find the final touch that would at least earn it a draw. Trailing 1-0 late, the Crew was playing shorthanded soccer against United after midfielder Bernardo Anor received a red card in the 81st minute, and the window of opportunity for a comeback at home looked to be quickly closing. Midfielders Wil Trapp and Hector Jimenez, however, saved their best plays for last. With the final seconds of regulation ticking away, Trapp chased down D.C. forward Fabian Espindola from behind, stole the ball, and moments later lofted a pass down field that hit Jimenez in stride, just outside of the box. Trapp’s counterattack became the assist Jimenez needed to notch the equalizer in the 90th minute on a crossing shot, helping Columbus fight to a 1-1 draw when defeat seemed all but certain.

Columbus Crew forward Federico Higuain (10) avoids a defender during a match against the Philadelphia Union March 22 at Crew Stadium. The Crew won, 2-1. “The result in that game was looking grim,” Crew coach Gregg Berhalter said after the game. “And, you know, they (D.C. United) were tight, they were really defensiveorientated. And we went down a

man. But the guys didn’t quit and I commend them on that … That effort, to not give up in that game and get something out of the game was spectacular.” Anor was shown a red card for

sliding cleats-up into the legs of United midfielder Perry Kitchen, who was not injured on the play. The late booking could have been a demoralizing game-breaker for the Crew, but the team instead rallied to get the draw. “We were down a man at that point. Wil was able to play a great ball to me,” Jimenez said after the game. “Before I kicked it, I saw a little gap and I was just happy it went in. We would have loved to have three points tonight, but it’s always nice to get one.” Failure to capitalize on scoring opportunities saw the Crew trailing United — a team they defeated handily, 3-0, March 8 on the road in the season opener — by a goal for most of the match, following a 31st minute goal by Espindola. Berhalter was critical of his team’s overall performance, despite the positive upswing that concluded the game. “Our game wasn’t on today and I’m disappointed in that more than anything,” Berhalter said. “We were looking forward to playing a great game and really putting them under pressure.”

sports OSU track and field turning focus to future after JO Classic TAYLOR CAMERON Lantern reporter Under sunny skies, the Ohio State men’s and women’s track and field teams stood tall at the Jesse Owens Track Classic. Leading the way for the Buckeyes at the two-day meet was the women’s 4x100-meter relay team of sprinters sophomore Aliyah Everson, redshirt-junior Chesna Sykes, senior Alycia Prior and redshirt-senior Ashlee Abraham, who scampered to a time of 44.56 seconds. The result is a season-best time for the squad and the best in the Big Ten this year. Several individual events also scored high, as junior distance runner Nicole Hilton won the 3000-meter steeplechase under the lights Friday with a time of 10:37.78. Saturday afternoon, senior sprinter and jumper Adenike Pedro claimed the long jump title with a personal-best jump of 6.13 meters. Senior jumper Bianca Walton jumped 12.31 meters in the triple jump, earning her second place. In the 100-meter dash, Abraham ran 11.65 seconds putting her in the runner-up position. Finally, junior mid-distance runner Katie Borchers finished third in the 800-meter with a time of 2:11.56 Women’s associate head coach Rosalind Joseph was excited by the outcome of the meet and how each of the players built on the foundations they had coming in to the meet. “Everybody was aggressive,� Joseph said. “Everyone came out to get something done. We asked them all to take something away from this meet that we can fine tune.�

Crew from 8A An unforced error by Columbus forward Federico Higuain proved costly, and United took advantage. A turnover in transition by the Argentine to D.C. midfielder Nick DeLeon quickly developed into a deep push in the attacking third, and DeLeon subsequently got the assist on the Espindola goal. Columbus worked harder rather than smarter for the majority of the match. The Crew owned a 61 percent time of possession advantage on the day and boasted a passing accuracy percentage of 83 — impressive in its stark contrast to the 69 percent posted by D.C. — but couldn’t find pay dirt until the very end.

Junior distance runner Nicole Hilton jumps a fence during the 3000-meter steeplechase as part of the Jesse Owens Track Classic April 19 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Hilton won the race. Pedro agreed with Joseph that the meet helped identify what needs to get done in the next few weeks in practice as the team prepares for the conference meet, scheduled for May 16-18 in West Lafayette, Ind. “There’s always something to improve on,� Pedro said. “From now on, every day in practice I know I have to work hard because there is somebody else out there who is working just as hard as me.� This meet proved to be an emotional one for

Pedro — it was the last time she will compete in Columbus wearing the Scarlet and Gray. “(This is the) last home meet, I knew I had to go out there and give it my best,� Pedro said. “I’m just glad we all came out as a team and fought hard and fought together.� Joseph said the women’s team immediately turned the focus back to practice and where each athlete can improve for next week. “We aren’t trying to change a bunch of things or add a bunch of things,� Joseph said. “We are just

that belief, and I mean, it’s like what Gregg told us at halftime,� Trapp said. “We had to believe that we could come back and everyone on the team believed, and that’s what carried us through.� Columbus is 3-1-2 on the season and ranks second in the Eastern Conference standings. The Black and Gold is set to welcome the New York Red Bulls (1-2-4) to town this Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

“I would say it was a little frustrating,� Trapp said of the overall feel of the game leading up to his assist on the tying goal. “To give up the goal when I thought we had more of the ball, we were just a little off on a couple giveaways here and there but mistakes are going to happen.� The looks were there early, but the finishing touch was lacking for the Black and Gold. Well-intentioned passes to forward Dominic Oduro were off-target and led to two offsides calls in the first half. While the Crew looked like the more athletic team even in struggling to convert, credit is due to D.C.’s backline for hunkering down defensively to repel attacks from every direction. “We kept faith in each other and

fine tuning. There are a lot of things to fine tune, but at the same time I think this meet really helped us identify what they were.� In the men’s 4x100-meter relay, sprinters redshirt-freshman Donovan Robertson, junior Nick Batcha, junior Timothy Faust and senior Brandon Blackwell were victorious and ran their fastest time this season of 40.14 seconds. The time earned them a Top 30 performance nationally. The men’s 4x400-meter relay had similar results. The relay, ran by sophomore Armand Austin, senior sprinter and hurdler Jordan Rispress, redshirt-senior Javon Walker and freshman LaMar Bruton, won with a time of 3:10.40. Rispress also ran a personal-best time in the 400-meter hurdles of 51.51, earning him first place. Walker finished second in the 400-meter dash. Sophomore distance runner Jordan Redd finished third in the 3000-meter steeplechase. Finally, two Buckeye runners placed Top 5 in the 1500-meter run. Redshirt-sophomore distance runner Josh Sabo placed second and graduate senior Andy Arnold finished fourth. Women’s coach Karen Dennis said while many athletes have made their way back to the track after injuries, they are still focused on getting everyone 100 percent healthy. “There are things that are going well, but we have to continue to get people healthy, and in a better competitive posture for the future,� Dennis said. Looking head, the men’s team is slated to compete Friday and Saturday at the Ole Miss Open in Oxford, Miss., and the women’s team is set to compete Thursday through Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, at the Drake Relays.

Baseball from 8A Sergakis was also efficient at the plate going 3-for-4 with a walk and one RBI. Freshman Zach Farmer came in to relieve Post, pitching five innings, giving up three runs and throwing three strikeouts to pick up his team-high sixth win of the season. Saturday, OSU trailed 7-2 in the bottom of the ninth when the team began mounting a comeback. A pair of errors and a walk loaded the bases with no outs, however, the Buckeyes only got three runs across before recording their final out, losing 7-5. Friday’s game was dictated by OSU’s starter pitcher. Freshman Tanner Tully went seven innings and gave up seven hits, one run and four strikeouts.

“We recharged our batteries (Thursday), cleaned our slate and I like how the guys played,� Beals said after the win Friday. “When you’re scuffling a little bit, you need your starter to come out and do what Tanner Tully did tonight. He really set the tempo by throwing strikes and forcing them to do something offensively.� Junior pitcher Trace Dempsey picked up his fifth save of the season after recording three strikeouts as he closed out the game’s final two innings in relief of Tully. Next for the Buckeyes is a weekend series on the road against Purdue. Game one is scheduled for Friday at 6:35 p.m. in West Lafayette, Ind.
