Boston Strong: OSU holds onto administrators with ‘competitive’ salaries Number of administrators at schools comparable to Ohio State US News and World A year later, Report ranking the city stands 35 CAITLIN ESSIG Managing editor for content For one Ohio State student, “Boston Strong” is more than a slogan. “The T-shirts and the posters and whatnot that say ‘Boston Strong’ on them, to a lot of people those are just the memorial slogan for what occurred, but for us it’s a sign of how close Boston is as a city,” said Taylor Landes, a fourth-year in international studies who is from Boston. A year ago, Landes said she knew Boston was a strong city, but after being about the length of a football field away from blasts at the finish line of the 117th Boston Marathon, she said that mindset was only strengthened. “Boston has always been a strong community. It’s a small city for being such a major city,” Landes said. “Everyone always jokes about how the sports fans are so crazy and so tight, and so it was a tight city anyways, a strong community. But especially after the bombing, if it was even possible, Boston just became even closer.” On April 15, 2013, two men set off two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three were killed, more than 260 were injured. A year later, nothing stopped Boston from running again Monday as 35,456 runners hit the streets Monday. Carley Tanchon, a student assistant in OSU’s neurosurgery department, was among the 23,000 runners in the Boston Marathon last year, and plans to run the race again next year. “Boston is an extremely emotional race to begin with,” Tanchon said. “When I ran it last year, I almost started crying in the first mile, just acknowledging that you’re a part of such a historic event. “The Boston Marathon has had, it just has been such a monument in the running community for decades. And you’re aware of that, you feel that when you’re on the course. I felt that the whole time I was running, and I didn’t even know what went on.”

LIZ YOUNG Campus editor It’s expected that the people leading an institution with the scope of Ohio State will be well compensated. What is less expected, though, is that those administrators on average make several times the amount an average faculty member makes, and more than their peers at comparable universities. Gene Smith formally joined the ranks of those administrators this year. Smith, OSU’s athletic director, was given the additional title of vice president and granted a four-year contract extension with a pay raise Jan. 28. His contract is now set to expire June 30, 2020, and his base salary is $940,484, up from $840,484 in 2013. He can now be considered one of the top administrators at OSU as a member of the Senior Management Council — a group of 17 people that “propose new policies or revisions to current policies … (and) determines if an issue needs to be addressed by a policy or a rule,” according to an OSU website. Smith, though, said in January it was a “formalizing” of his existing duties.

“I wanted to have an opportunity to see the vision that all of us have in the athletic department come to fruition and that takes stability. (OSU Interim President) Joe (Alutto) was kind enough to listen and forward me that opportunity,” Smith said in an interview with The Lantern Jan. 29. But the step was made both for public purposes and solidifying a grasp on Smith’s talents it seems — Alutto said in February Smith was partially promoted for his role in negotiating OSU’s private contracts with companies like Nike Inc., which has an 11-year, $46 million contract with OSU. “He’s been very active in helping us negotiate some of our infinity agreements that have brought revenues that have allowed us to support students to give additional scholarships and so what I wanted to do, and I think that the university trustees agreed, is that we want to expand that responsibility and use his talents even more than we have in the past,” he said in an interview with The Lantern Feb. 11. That’s a concept that OSU applies to a lot of its officials, Alutto said. “With this question of ‘how does a university capitalize to the greatest extent possible on the different attributes of our leaders?’ and they all have different sets of skills and you’re constantly looking to place the individual in the right position

to take for the university to take advantage of those skills,” he said. OSU football coach Urban Meyer might be another good representation of what taking advantage of skills can look like on a paycheck. Meyer is the highest-paid public employee in the state of Ohio, taking home almost $3 million total in fiscal year 2013, which Alutto said is merely a reality, as OSU competes “in different markets for different skill levels.” It is perhaps the same logic that’s been used for years in expanding the Senior Management Council and shifting the responsibilities of various administrators, as OSU and the U.S. higher education system as a whole move into an era where tuition rises, professors get cut and yet some salaries continue to grow ever more bloated. But as some argue that increase is only natural, others said they think universities are on a bad path. OSU, meanwhile, pays its administrative officials a significant amount more than some comparable universities. So how does OSU compare? The comparison Though administrative structures across U.S. universities differ, similarities still exist. There is

OUABudget nears $2.15M for FY 2014 OSU suggests $76.9M for renovations MATTHEW LOVETT Asst. arts editor

The Big Free Concert might have been free for students to attend, but the Ohio Union Activities Board had a significant budget to pay for Childish Gambino and his supporting acts. The OUAB budget was just shy of the $2.1 million mark for last year, but exceeded that in 2014. OUAB was allocated about $2.1 million for fiscal year 2013 (July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013) while this year, the organization has a budget of $2.15 million. The organization is funded through the $37.50 student activity fee paid by each student each semester, and 53.2 percent of the total amount amassed through the fee was allotted to OUAB each year. The fee is only charged to students at Ohio State’s Columbus campus and is paid by undergraduate, graduate and professional students. According to its 2013 report to the Ohio Union Council and Council on Student Affairs, about 96 percent of OUAB’s 2013 budget — roughly $1.9 million — went toward programming or the costs associated with bringing talent to campus and putting on events. This portion also includes costs for marketing those events, said OUAB president MacGregor Obergfell in an email in March. OUAB hosted 282 events with around 89,000 total attendants for the FY 2013. The final 4 percent of the budget was allotted for operational and professional developmental expenses. Operational expenses pay for daily necessities such as office supplies. Professional development funds pay for development opportunities that Obergfell said “allow (OUAB) to expand (its) knowledge, ideas and development through experiences like attending professional conferences, such as National Association of Campus Activities in Nashville.” 2013’s fiscal year brought in acts such as “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Bill Hader and primatologist and activist Jane Goodall. This year, OUAB has used its funds to host performances from the likes of comedians Joel McHale and Adam DeVine. The 2014 budget also accounted for OUAB’s Big Free Concert April 10, which rapper Childish Gambino, whose real name is Donald Glover, headlined. The amount spent thus far in OUAB’s 2014 fiscal year, which began July 1, 2013, and will end June 30, cannot be revealed, Obergfell said. However, he said the full budget has been allocated for the remainder of the semester and for the summer. “Since we have many events currently taking place and many expenses clearing daily and waiting to be cleared, it is difficult to give an exact

As of the end of Fall Semester 2013, OUAB hosted about 140 events with about 55,000 attendants. Obergfell declined to provide an estimate of how much OUAB has spent so far in the FY 2014. While OUAB has nine committees specializing in planning different types of events, such as music or lectures, a set amount is not given to each committee to spend for the year. “Each committee operates within the annual full allocation, but does not receive a set amount each year. The amount of money that is eventually allocated to each event varies based on the expenses associated with each event. Thus the amount that each committee receives each year varies,” Obergfell said. OUAB does not release payment information for the artists and performers it brings to OSU because of competition with other venues in Columbus. Releasing this information, Obergfell said, would put OUAB at a “competitive disadvantage in the future.” In comparison to another programming organization in the Big Ten, the Wisconsin Union of University of Wisconsin-Madison was allocated about $705,000 for FY 2014 from the union’s operational revenue, said Gary Filipp, vice president for program administration at the Wisconsin Union. Though the Wisconsin Union’s programming budget has the opportunity to expand based

Ohio State seems to be taking the lion’s share of state funding to repair and maintain existing facilities, despite a newly implemented system designed to unify the funding request process. Maintenance and repair was an approximately $167 million piece of the list of recommended higher education projects totaling $404.5 million in the Ohio Higher Education Funding Commission recommendations for 2015-16. The money budgeted for maintenance and repair equals roughly the tuition cost of 16,658 in-state undergraduates at Ohio State’s Columbus campus for 2013-14 school year. The Ohio Higher Education Funding Commission is a collaborative effort of public college and university leaders established by Ohio Gov. John Kasich in 2011 to form a single budget encompassing all public colleges and universities in Ohio, as opposed to higher education institutions separately asking for state funding as was done in the past. “Those other states that I’ve talked with, they’re intrigued by this approach, absolutely intrigued,” said Kevin Boys, president of Southern State Community College, based in Hillsboro, Ohio. Boys was co-chair of the Funding Commission and said in the previous system of colleges asking for state funding, “it’s whoever has the best lobby (that) gets the biggest piece of the pie.” The most recent budget was signed by the presidents of all 37 public universities and colleges in Ohio and passed by Kasich in the capital budget for 2015-16. “I feel the funding recommendations reflect not on growth, but on the aging buildings and infrastructure of publicly funded universities in Ohio and the fact that facilities are close to crumbling before our eyes and it is now time to protect taxpayer’s investment,” said Ted Curtis, vice president for capital planning and facilities management at the University of Akron in an email. In an October 2013 memo to officials who helped form the funding recommendations, Boys and chair of the commission Roderick McDavis, Ohio University’s president, said “of particular note, the governor has repeatedly highlighted the need to concentrate state resources on maintenance and repair of current facilities, instead of building new structures.”

campus Train accident survivor, former student supports others with lost limbs KARLIE FRANK Lantern reporter Former Ohio State student Mark Kalina Jr. is planning to complete a 10-12 mile obstacle course called the Tough Mudder in May — less than two years after losing both of his legs in a train accident. The then-fifth year in civil engineering was walking home by himself from Grandview Heights after a night out with friends in October 2012. As he walked alongside a railroad track, he slipped on gravel and his shirt snagged on a train, which began moving at the same time. Unable to free himself, Kalina pulled himself onto a ladder on the side of the train and held on for as long as he could until he fell, landing on the connector. His body was pulled underneath the train and

his entire left leg and right leg below the knee were severed as the entire train passed over him. Kalina then dialed 911 and directed the police and ambulance to his location, even though he said in that moment, he didn’t think he was going to make it. “I remember being upset that I didn’t call my parents one last time … People say your life flashes before your eyes, but I had mostly thoughts about unfinished business. How I never finished my degree, never got married, never had kids, all my goals were just done. It was this feeling of overwhelming helplessness,” Kalina said. In and out of consciousness, Kalina remembers the officers arriving and pulling him off the track, a point at which he said neither the officers nor the emergency medical technicians thought he would make it, as they told him later. Waking up in the OSU Wexner Medical Center hours later, Kalina was amazed he was still alive.

Now, he’s back in his hometown of Twinsburg, Ohio, walking on prosthetics and preparing to complete the Tough Mudder in Mansfield, Ohio, with a team set up through the Mark Kalina Jr. Foundation he and his family established in January 2013. The foundation provides support for others who have lost limbs due to a traumatic accident, a big part of which is financial assistance for prosthetics, Kalina said. “I never knew how expensive prosthetics were. It’s over $100,000 worth of equipment. (The foundation) provides financial support for their own prosthetics they would need to live their life like they used to, as much as that could happen,” Kalina said. The foundation raises money through an annual April fundraising event, including a raffle with donations from local companies, though events will grow in the future, said Matt Kalina, Mark Kalina’s younger brother. “We’re picking up things as we go. We’ve never

run a foundation before. I run the website,” Matt Kalina said. “Everyone hears his story and wants to do things to help out. We wanted to do more than help Mark, Mark wanted to help other people.” Mark Kalina has volunteered with a national organization called Operation Lifesaver Inc., which works to educate people on safe practices concerning railroads. He also gives safety presentations, telling his story. This past month, he traveled to Washington, D.C., to speak to radio and TV stations on behalf of a national campaign called “See Tracks? Think Train!” run through Operation Lifesaver. “I was sharing my personal story, so they can learn from my story and they won’t make the same mistake,” Mark Kalina said. Mark Kalina also volunteers at MetroHealth

OSU finals week a historical threat to students’ sanity ALEX DRUMMER Lantern reporter “Final examinations are as inescapable as death and taxes and just as dreaded.” That’s the beginning of an article published in The Lantern in 1964, but with finals week approaching again, the stress still seemingly exists. “Finals are awful. They’re kind of just like a marathon, and you’re on the final stretch, so it’s at that point where you can’t give up, so you have to just keep going,” said Nahila Sharif, a second-year in chemical engineering. And Sharif is not alone, as finals have been the cause of stress for years, according to Lantern archives. • Tom Daniels, an Ohio State graduate student in 1992, said the stress of finals week led to his decision to go to San Francisco after completing his exams — on a bicycle. He left Columbus Aug. 3, 1992, and arrived in San Francisco Sept. 6, 1992. • In 1990, a university hospital director said the hospital regularly experienced a substantial increase in the number of stress-related incidents during the last week of class and finals week. • In 1978, some OSU students were upset at the Saturday finals that were scheduled to

take place. Furthermore, a group of Jewish students came together to form the Coalition Against Saturday Finals to protest finals being held on the Jewish Sabbath. • In 1964, when the total student enrollment at the Columbus campus was 33,384 people, an article in the paper focused on the pros and cons of finals week in light of an impending change to the system. The overemphasis of final exams on overall grades was noted as a con. That overemphasis is something some students today find problematic as well. Erin Ponting, a second-year in molecular genetics, said she experienced that last semester. “I had a class where (the final) was 50 percent of my grade,” she said. Sharif also said overemphasis on finals is a problem. “I do think it’s overstressed, and I think that’s kind of sad because some people are great students, but the stress can get to them,” Sharif said. In 1958, an article explained the benefit of fraternity brotherhood during finals week. “The life saver of many a fraternity man is ‘the files’ without which no house is complete. In this storehouse of pertinent information it is possible to discover that your economics professor does give objective questions like he said he never did,” the article read. Two years earlier, The Lantern asked students

Tom Daniels, an Ohio State graduate student in 1992, said the stress of finals week led to his decision to go to San Francisco after completing his exams — on a bicycle. He left Columbus Aug. 3, 1992, and arrived in San Francisco Sept. 6, 1992. when they started studying for finals. Answers ranged from all quarter to the night before. One answer read, “A week before finals I look over my notes.” In 2014, Ponting said she doesn’t just look over her notes — she rewrites them. Stephanie Borio, a current second-year in speech and hearing science, said she does the same thing. In 1946, when the total student population was 24,867 people, a “finals week” had only been in existence for a couple of years. Prior to this, finals took place during the last two class periods of the quarter. An article in favor of the system change said the designated week allowed for students to have their exams more spread out. However, the finals week system today, when there are about 57,466 total students at the Columbus campus, does not always work out that way for some students. Borio said of her five exams, four of them were scheduled to take place on the Monday of finals

week. After talking to her professors, she was able to get one moved to another day, leaving her with three Monday, which she said are practically back to back. “There’s no time to reset or rejuvenate,” Borio said. Stress doesn’t always win out, though. Back in 1923, the circus was in town the same week as finals. “The question of whether t’was nobler to stay home and study for a 7:30 final or to attend the circus arose in the minds of many Wednesday, and in several cases the circus won,” the article read. Not only were students in attendance, but two professors were spotted under the tent as well. Students might not have the chance to attend the circus this week, but some have smaller ways to keep the stress under control. “I like watching shows I like, like ‘Game of Thrones,’ or going out to dinner with my friends,” Ponting said. For Sharif, catching up on rest is her go-to. “Naps are a good study break because you don’t get much sleep to begin with, so sometimes just putting in that 30 minutes actually does help,” she said. And for Borio, who said she doesn’t really have time for study breaks, just enjoying the nice weather for a few minutes helps her to de-stress. “Walking from the library to home — that’s my time,” Borio said. Finals are scheduled to take place Wednesday through April 29.

She said that day last April reminded her why running, and the community surrounding the sport, is so important to her. “It’s that reminder that you run, because of your connection to people more than anything else,” she said. “And sure, it’s great to work hard and run a good time, that’s what we all strive for as well, but at the end of the day, it’s about people.” Tanchon ran the race with her father, and said they left the finish line about five minutes before the first blast went off. “When I was at the finish line, the sun was shining, we were so excited and we were ready to go back to the hotel … and so then to get off (the train) and hear that that had happened, and then watching the video, and then all you see at the finish line is dust and smoke,” she said. “And it was honestly so surreal because my last image, which was less than five minutes ago, five minutes before that happened, was just all fun.” She said she was glad she didn’t have a more detailed personal story about what unfolded at the finish line. “It just reminds you in general how quickly things can change,” Tanchon said. “I’m sure people who asked me about it initially were hoping that I had some kind of crazy story to share about it, and I didn’t. And I’m so grateful that the extent of my

crazy story is that by God’s grace, I ended up being out of that area within five minutes of it happening.” Landes said she was proud of the other stories that crossed the finish line — ones of hope. “Just from the day itself, having so many people just rush to help others, more people rushed to help others than ran away from the scene,” she said. “So many people opened their doors to strangers in order to provide shelter and food for them while people were trying to figure out what was going on, and the panic of the day. And just as the year’s gone on, there’s definitely just a sense of humanity.” She said aside from that sense of humanity, being so close to the finish line when the bombs went off taught her about strength. “It taught me to really push through trying times,” she said. “The way I look at it is if I can push through taking finals after something like that, then I can kind of handle anything.” Landes said in the aftermath of the bombing, she was thankful for the support provided to her at OSU. She said people constantly reached out to her to make sure she wasn’t lonely. “I left Boston, so I felt like I was leaving my home, and Ohio State made it a lot easier to kind of cope with the fact,” Landes said. “The Ohio State community proved it is one of the strongest college communities in the country.”

Hospital in Cleveland in a program with survivors of trauma, sharing his story and motivation with others going through similar experiences. After being in a wheelchair for two months and then beginning the painful process of using prosthetic legs to walk, Mark Kalina said he’s now using a cane less and less, planning to wean himself off it completely this summer. The most difficult thing has been remembering how easy activities used to be, Mark Kalina said. “The hardest part is knowing what I used to be able to do, and knowing that I can’t do that. I used to run and work out a lot, play soccer for my fraternity intramural team. It’s having a not as active lifestyle,” Mark Kalina said. However, Mark Kalina said his optimistic attitude comes from the support he’s felt following the accident. “When I woke up in the hospital I was just happy to be alive. I had amazing support from my family and friends, Ohio State, my fraternity. The entire college, I felt like, was behind me. Coming back home, the community was behind me. All that support helped me be positive, keep pushing myself to improve,” Mark Kalina said. Matt Kalina, who is a fourth-year in communication, said watching his brother recover has been incredible.

“It’s been really inspirational because I can’t say I would have been as strong as he was. When I first walked into the hospital room, he was positive from that moment on. He hasn’t lost that. He knows what he wants to do and he makes it happen,” Matt Kalina said. Daniel Brandt, a fourth-year in environment, economy, development and sustainability and a friend of Mark Kalina’s from OSU’s Alpha Rho Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity that Mark belonged to, said he was stunned when he first heard the news. Now, however, his surprise about Mark’s progress is minimal. “In general, it’s surprising that someone can have that positive of an attitude, but even before the accident he was positive and upbeat. If there was anyone that could have that upbeat of an attitude, it’d be him. He’s just like that as a person,” Brandt said. This coming fall, Mark Kalina is set to attend Cleveland State University, a campus where he said he can move around without needing assistance from anyone, to finish his degree. Mark Kalina said the biggest lesson he’s learned is that he’s not invincible. “I approached a situation, walking on train tracks, and I said, ‘I’ll be careful enough, going across the tracks is fine.’ Don’t think nothing bad can ever happen, because it can. You can cut corners a thousands times but just once, something bad can happen, and not a lot of people are aware of that,” he said.

campus Administrators from 1A almost always someone at the head of it all, be the position called chancellor or president, and there are people heading departments the university particularly values who are called upon to weigh in on key conversations. While there are records representing pieces of what these top administrators do, including travel expenses and performance reviews, contrasting their compensations with those in similar positions at comparable universities provides a way to see how OSU is attempting to hold on to its administrators as it looks to break into the top tier of U.S. universities. And looking at seven areas and their leaders at 10 other universities — provosts, academic affairs, research, general counsel, finance, athletics and communication — it seems OSU’s leaders are making out pretty well financially. The average compensation of the person at the head of those departments at OSU (keeping in mind that Executive Vice President and Provost Joseph Steinmetz functions as both provost and head of academic affairs, so there are only six people factored in) is more than $554,350. In comparison, the administrators in charge of those areas at OSU make more than the respective officials at all 10 other universities in four of the seven areas, only including officials who are considered to be at the top of the school’s administrative structure. Those other universities — Arizona State University, University of Central Florida, Texas A&M University, University of Texas, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, University of Florida, University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin and Indiana University — were chosen for size and U.S. News and World Report ranking, which can be considered a measure of academic reputation. Only two of the schools have more administrators in a group comparable to OSU’s Senior Management Council: Minnesota with 18 people on its executive team and Arizona State with 22 university provosts and deans and 13 vice presidents. The school with the next highest average pay of administrators within its top council that lead

any of those seven areas is Michigan, with an average of $449,907 — about $104,450 less than OSU’s average. Alutto said those elevated salaries make OSU competitive. “For each appointment we make, we engage in market analyses and comparisons, and we certainly need to be competitive to attract the very best people here,” he said in an interview with The Lantern March 31. “So I would make the assumption, for everything I have seen, that we are competitive.” The criticism Allan Silverman, an OSU philosophy professor and a former faculty chair for University Senate, said from what he has seen, OSU is paying more for administrators now than it did seven years ago, contributing in part to a lack of academic progress. He said OSU needs to attract more faculty personnel. “If Ohio State is interested in being a better academic institution, there are only two ways of accomplishing that: growing the size of the faculty and paying the faculty more,” Silverman said. “Columbus is now a good place to be … We can attract people in a way that we perhaps couldn’t 30 years ago, but right now we’re struggling.” OSU ranked No. 37 in average faculty salary among Association of American Universities schools for the 2012-13 academic year with a $110,350 average, according to a University Senate document. Silverman said the average pay of some OSU administrators is put into perspective when comparing the figure with the base salary of incoming OSU President Michael Drake — $800,000. “This is the mentality that’s set in, we’ll just keep drilling as if the administrators can make us a better university,” he said. In fact, after his raise, Gene Smith makes more than Drake will, earning a $940,484 base salary. Silverman also pointed to the U.S. News and World Report as one way of measuring whether OSU has improved academically. In 2007, OSU was ranked No. 19 of the nation’s best public universities. Six years later, in 2013,

OSU was ranked No. 16 on the same list, only three spots higher. “We’re spending a lot of money on administrators, and you can ask yourself, what is the reputational bang for the buck gain that we’ve gotten for it?” Silverman said. The director of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity said administrative hiring and pay have gotten out of hand at OSU. “Colleges have kind of lost their way and they’ve lost sense of their primary mission. They have two primary missions … First is instruction, the people who are enrolled at a university,” said Richard Vedder, an economics professor at Ohio University. “Secondly they have a mission of doing research. “What is not a core mission is hiring dozens and dozens of non-instructional bureaucrats to allegedly assist the chief administrators … Ohio State should not be condemned on that for being different but I do think it’s just gotten out of hand. Some of it has been justified with increase complexity of rules and regulations on universities.” Former Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp said in some instances, the administrators deserve their salaries. “Based on some of these individuals you’ve highlighted, they’ve got a very unique role,” Stepp said. “Given what Ohio State is, you should expect that the individuals running it should be compensated well.” Stepp said, though, he does think the times call for a refreshed outlook. “We as an institution need to take a step back and think about what our mission really is here, and our mission is to be the people’s university of the state of Ohio,” he said. “I’m not saying that just administrative salaries are the issue, there are a number of things that we are prioritizing over our educational responsibility.”

colleges and universities) has more than doubled,” adding that the rate of increase was more than twice the increase in the number of students. Alutto said he’s noticed that trend of swelling, but doesn’t find it problematic, crediting it in part to the government adding more “reporting requirements” that require additional staff members. “It’s a tension that’s built into every university,” he said in an interview with The Lantern March 31. “Part of the pattern over the last few years, certainly the last 20 years or so, is to provide levels of support that we haven’t seen in the past for faculty and for students … all of those require the hiring of non-faculty, which are classified as staff.” He added, though, it’s important to keep an eye on administrative growth. “If you’re not careful about it, you come to a point where you’re investing in many support activities but not in the instruction of students and the growth of students through research, which really ultimately is our goal,” he said. Meanwhile, Steinmetz said he, too, has noticed a pattern after studying the issues for a few years, but he said there is a reason behind the growth. “What’s required today in a university, to run a university, is much different than what it was even 10 years ago,” he said in an interview with The Lantern April 1. Steinmetz cited examples like the opening of new facilities like the RPAC and the Ohio Union, which require additional administrative members to be able to operate. Steinmetz added, however, he has his own hesitations about the trend of growing administrations. “My concern, since I represent the academic mission of the university, is that we never cross the line that it’s drawing away from the resources that we really need to teach students and for the student experience. We’re not there at Ohio State,” he said.

The nationwide trend The New England Center for Investigative Reporting recently reported that from 1987 until the 2011-12 academic year, “the number of administrators and professional staff (at U.S.

campus Renovations from 1A McDavis said that statement originated from a personal conversation he had with Kasich at the outset of the commission’s work. “It was no surprise that that was the highest priority that the governor had because that’s what we’ve been telling him,” McDavis said. For OSU, the funding recommendations include a total of about $76.9 million for renovations, including $37.2 million for renovations of Pomerene Hall and $15.6 million for renovations of Oxley Hall as part of the university’s Discovery Themes initiative. The Discovery Themes initiative, which was launched in October 2012, targets health and wellness, energy and environment, food and food security, areas identified by some OSU officials as university priority areas. The $400 million plan includes expanding research and hiring new faculty. OSU Physical Planning and Real Estate maintains facility condition index scores of all buildings at OSU to keep track of their conditions, with 100 percent being the best condition, and determine if renovations are necessary, according to data OSU Administration and Planning spokeswoman Lindsay Komlanc provided to The Lantern. The most recent FCI score for Pomerene Hall was 55.7 percent, while the most recent FCI score for Oxley Hall was 71.1 percent, according to the data. OSU Administration and Planning spokeswoman Alison Hinkle said repair and renewal projects are crucial to OSU’s success. “While construction can seem like a short-term inconvenience, its purpose is always tied to a longterm benefit for our faculty, staff, students, visitors and patients,” Hinkle said in an email. “Some construction

Total enrollment for Wisconsin UniversityMadison was 43,275 for fall 2013, while OSU’s Columbus campus enrollment was 57,466. Richard Vedder, economics professor at Ohio University and director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, said the budget of

is to make major new improvements to campus, while other work is to ensure that our current facilities – either buildings, roadways or utility infrastructure is kept in good, working order to service a campus that is active 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.” In comparison, the FCI score for St. John Arena was 50.3 percent, while Ohio Union’s was a 96.3 percent. Other universities throughout Ohio are dealing with similar things, McDavis said. “The highest priority was deferred maintenance, fixing the buildings that already were in existence,” McDavis said about Ohio University. The 2015-16 funding recommendations at Ohio University include $2.7 million for upgrades to its College of Fine Arts and $1 million for utility tunnel upgrades, part of recommendations totaling $6.37 million across Ohio University’s campuses. McDavis expressed support for the plan that the Funding Commission had laid out, but said more money would be welcome. “We know what the problems are, the challenge is that we never have enough money to fix everything that’s wrong with all of our buildings,” McDavis said. These sentiments were echoed by Harry Wyatt, associate vice president for architecture, design and construction at Ohio University, who said the new system of asking the state government for funding “really does not decrease the magnitude of the deferred maintenance problem.” “As Ohio State received their normal huge share, the other campuses received very similar percentages from the previous years,” Curtis said. He said OSU received relatively more funding than other universities partly because OSU “is a lot closer to the political picture in Columbus than other campuses.”

an organization like OUAB raises questions as to how the student activity fee might be spent, and whether or not it is worth it for some students who already face the financial problems in paying for college. “(Some) students are, in effect, paying for concerts that they are not the slightest bit interested in. Is it fair to students? It’s a non-academic activity, it has very little to do with the curriculum, with learning, with creating and disseminating knowledge,” Vedder said. “Why shouldn’t a student who is having a tough time going through college save the 40 bucks? You could make that

argument. I think on a whole, we tend to charge too much for these kind of fees … Why should the general student population be burdened?” Third-year in animal sciences Hannah Slykerman might be able to relate to Vedder’s argument. “Honestly, I have never really participated in the activities that (OUAB) pays for. So to me, I don’t necessarily think that it has affected me in a positive way for my experience. So to me, it does seem like sort of a waste,” Slykerman said. “When tuition keeps going up and that sort of thing … I couldn’t see giving them any more money than they already get.

I’m not 100 percent supportive of them getting that much money.” But the concerts seem like worthwhile expenses to Alexa McGuire, a third-year in neuroscience, though she said it is surprising how much money goes into them. “I think concerts are a good use of (OUAB’s) money,” McGuire said. “They seem to get a decently popular group every time, and that’s awesome … is it worth $2.1 million? Probably not.”

Eric Seger Sports editor Some seasons end in championships. Others, losses that make you scratch your head. Some teams show pure dominance in their sport. Others fight just to finish with a winning record. Ohio State sports dabbled in a bit of each of these during the 2013-14 season, as the men’s tennis, men’s lacrosse, pistol and synchronized swimming teams captured at least a share of a conference or National Championship, and redshirt-junior Logan Steiber captured his third-consecutive NCAA wrestling title in addition to senior Joe Totts winning his second individual pistol title. Other squads, like the football, women’s volleyball and men’s basketball teams, all started hot and won at least 12 straight contests to open the season, only to falter down the stretch. Some OSU teams are still battling to the finish off their respective seasons — baseball, softball and men’s and women’s lacrosse, to name a few — but let’s take a moment to look back at the school year that was in OSU athletics.

The main revenue sports In what some fans could consider a down year, the Buckeye football and men’s basketball programs both started off their respective seasons well, with the football team again going 12-0 and Thad Matta’s team ripping off 15 straight wins themselves as the team ascended as high as No. 3 in the polls. But things quickly went south for the hoops squad, as it struggled to score consistently and only won half of its remaining 20 games to close out the season. The Buckeyes fell to Dayton, 60-59, in the NCAA Tournament’s second round, marking the first time in five seasons the Buckeyes failed to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. “If anything, we’ll look at this and put ourselves in positions of understanding what it takes to win on a consistent basis,” Matta said on his team’s season after the loss to the Flyers. “It’s not just putting on a uniform that says Ohio State, it’s about going out and getting the job done.” It took 739 days for Urban Meyer to experience his first loss as OSU’s football coach — the school officially announced his hire Nov. 29, 2011, and the team ripped off 24 straight wins before losing to Michigan State, 34-24, in the Big Ten Championship Game Dec. 7. After following that loss with another less than a month later — this time to Clemson, 40-35, in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl

Jan. 3 — Meyer wasn’t pleased with how his team finished out the season. “Is this what we expect? No,” Meyer said after the Orange Bowl loss. “We expect top 10 defense at Ohio State, top 10 offense and top 10 special teams, and I don’t believe we accomplished any of those.” OSU Director of Athletics and Vice President Gene Smith said Meyer has got the program in an “outstanding” place, but the team must perform better in the big games. “Every game we have a chance to win, and we were there,” Smith said in an interview with The Lantern Jan. 29. “There’s a lot of teams that wish they had the opportunities to be in those games. We have to perform better when we’re in them, because we don’t want to lose them … I feel good about where we are.” Both programs look to rebound for next season, as Matta brought in two transfers — forward Anthony Lee, from Temple who can play next year and center Trevor Thompson from Virginia Tech, who will sit out the 2014-15 season — to help fill the void. Meyer finalized another top five recruiting class and also added defensive line coach Larry Johnson, from Penn State, and co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash, from Arkansas, to help bolster the unit.

Ash, Coombs, Fickell forming working bond on defensive staff daniel rogers Asst. sports editor A Buckeye, a Badger and a Bearcat walk into a coaches meeting and have to find a way to work together to save the Ohio State football team’s defense. There’s no punch line for the joke, because it hasn’t had time to be written yet. With the addition of co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash to coach Urban Meyer’s staff — the aforementioned Badger because of a two-year stint with Wisconsin, before spending last season with the Arkansas Razorbacks — to the OSU coaching staff in January, there were bound to be some things that had to be figured out in the coach’s room. Defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell (the Buckeye) and cornerbacks coach and special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs (who spent four seasons as an assistant with the Cincinnati Bearcats) had to figure out how to work with the new coach and still help revitalise a pass defense that finished 112th in the country last season. But through spring practice, things have been going swimmingly for the defensive coaching staff.

“Love Coach Ash,” Coombs said April 3. “Again, I would like to think that I’m a lifelong learner, and in the experiences I’ve had and the exposure that I’ve had to different coaches and different strategies and different ways to approach the game is refreshing.

“I think Chris and I are working really well together. A lot of communication and so I think it’s been a real blessing for me, and I hope he would say the same thing. But I’m enjoying working for him.”

The two coaches will be in charge of a secondary that struggled at times last year, allowing more than 300 yards through the air in each of the final four games of the season. The unit will also lose four key players from last season’s unit — starters cornerback Bradley Roby and safeties C.J. Barnett and Christian Bryant, as well as safety Corey “Pitt” Brown, who started in place of the injured Bryant. Coombs said Ash brings in a completely different style of play than Everett Withers, the coach he replaced, who took the head coaching job at James Madison Dec. 20. “The style of play we’re playing is different … one of the things I told coach Meyer about when he (Withers) left is we need to start meeting together, we need to start spending more time together as a cohesive unit,” Coombs said of the cornerbacks and safeties spending more time together. “So Chris and I are able to do that and spend time together and that’s worked out really well. He’s got good energy, he’s got good passion … We’re playing a style of defense that is very appealing to me as corners coach and a lot of stuff that I believe in, so I’m very excited about that.”

With added big men, Matta looking for more production from low post daniel rogers Asst. sports editor For a time early in Thad Matta’s career as the Ohio State men’s basketball coach, his teams were built around the center position. Terence Dials, Greg Oden, Kosta Koufos, B.J. Mullens and Jared Sullinger were all standout post presences that helped carry the Buckeyes under Matta. But over the last two seasons — since Sullinger left for the NBA after two seasons in Columbus — the Buckeyes have had a bit of a crisis in the post. With junior centers Amir Williams and Trey McDonald — who averaged a combined 9.8 points and 7.5 rebounds per game last season — trading time down low, the Buckeyes have been forced to rely on their guards and forwards to provide the bulk of the offense. Before a game against Illinois Jan. 23, Matta said having Williams playing at his best is something the team desperately needed. “We need Amir to play well,” Matta said. “We need Amir to play consistently on both ends. We gotta get him back to tracking the ball, we gotta get him back to blocking shots more actively around the rim in terms of challenging shots … When he’s played well, we’ve played well. I know that.” But ever since the end of the 2013-14 season came at the hands of Dayton in the second round of the NCAA Tournament March


20, Matta has been on a warpath to help improve his team’s much maligned post players. So far, it has paid off. Two players, Temple’s Anthony Lee and Virginia Tech’s Trevor Thompson, have announced their transfers to OSU since the season ended. It was announced Lee would join the program March 29, a day after forward LaQuinton Ross, the team’s leading scorer, announced his decision to forgo his senior season and make the jump to the NBA. In an interview with, Lee said he joined the program because of Matta’s presence as coach. “He was talking about how much I could have added,” Lee told March 30. “That if I were on the team, maybe we’d still be playing (this year).” Lee, who averaged 13.6 points per game last season for Temple, is 6 feet 9 inches tall and is more likely suited for the role as a power forward, but said in the interview he’s open to helping the team in any way possible. “I’m a stretch-four, someone who can help out inside or shoot a three,” Lee told “It is about expanding my game and helping the team in more than one area. That is really important to me.” Matta has shown his willingness before to switch to a

sports Carrillo winding down career of destiny for OSU softball NICK DEIBEL Lantern reporter Choosing which college to attend while still in high school can be an unnerving experience for any studentathlete. Location, facilities, education and family all factor into a decision that is going to impact the rest of their lives. For one Ohio State softball player, the decision became more personal than she could have ever imagined. Buckeye first baseman Evelyn Carrillo started playing softball at the age of 5 when her dad, Jose, bought her a bat and ball, and she has been hooked on the sport ever since. At Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Corona, Calif., Carrillo was a four-year captain. College softball coaches across the country began taking notice of Carrillo’s presence on the softball field. She started receiving numerous scholarship offers from colleges, including OSU. As the coach of the Miami (Ohio) softball team from 2006-12, OSU coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly said she had her eye on Carrillo at a very young age. There was just something special about the way she carried herself, Schoenly said. “As a high school kid, she just had that presence you don’t see out of 15 year olds. She owned the field,� Schoenly said. “I would have loved to recruit her out of high school, I thought she was a phenomenal athlete.� Carrillo also carried her mature presence off the field. Between playing softball full-time, being an honor roll student and traveling to prospective colleges, Carrillo’s responsibilities were consuming. Evelyn’s mother, Angela, said her daughter’s schedule was always full with softball practices and tournaments. “Evelyn was so committed to softball all her life. We had no Christmases with family, we had no Thanksgiving with family, there was no Easter Sunday because we were out at her tournaments,� Angela Carrillo said. In fall 2008, the time for Evelyn to pick a college was rapidly approaching. She said she wondered what it would be like to move away from California for the first time in her life. While her mind was set on the possibility of moving away from home, something troubling began within her house. For five months, Angela Carrillo visited doctors regarding a lump growing on her head. After repeatedly being told it was only a cyst, Angela Carrillo convinced doctors to surgically remove the lump. Awake and on local anesthesia, she began to bleed profusely during the surgery. After being rushed to another operating

OSU lost, 5-4. room, doctors were able to control the bleeding and performed a biopsy. During the next two weeks, the Carrillo family prepared for Evelyn’s quinceaĂąera — a Spanish rite of passage and celebration when a female turns 15 — as her mom’s conditioned worsened. After getting no responses from doctors despite frequent phone calls, Evelyn’s parents drove to the hospital to find anyone who would talk to them. The news they received was heart-wrenching. Angela Carrillo was diagnosed with brain cancer on Oct. 3, 2008. She was told the tumor was resistant to chemotherapy and that surgery would give her a 50-50 chance of survival. “I was diagnosed October the third, Evelyn’s QuinceaĂąera was October 18, so it was a big event for us. I was like, ‘Should we stop that? Put everything aside? I don’t even think I’m going to make it that far out,’â€? Angela Carrillo said. Just as Evelyn Carrillo was mapping out her future, her mother’s diagnosis flipped her entire life upside down. “I think that was very devastating to her. Evelyn is like the second mom to my kids, she had a lot of stuff going on. She was getting all these offers from colleges, playing for her travel ball, she received such notice and it really hit hard on her,â€? Angela Carrillo said. Angela Carrillo remembers her daughter staying strong around the family, especially for her three younger siblings.

“She has always been a strong girl. Somehow when Evelyn was in front of me, she was always saying, ‘You’re going to be OK, Mom. This is just another stone on the road and you’re going to be fine,’� Angela Carrillo said. Fed up with how her doctors handled the diagnosis, Angela Carrillo said she decided to seek a second opinion at a different hospital. She was referred to Dr. Brian Pikul, a 1991 graduate of OSU’s College of Medicine. At her first appointment with Pikul, Angela Carrillo said she was smitten with his bedside manner. After his initial evaluation, Pikul said he thought she had a 90 percent chance of walking away from the surgery if he was the one who performed it. When Evelyn Carrillo and her father heard the news, they felt it was destiny that she had a scholarship offer from OSU. “The minute Evelyn and my husband found out, Evelyn said, ‘I’m going to Ohio.’ And within minutes, she made that phone call and she was committed to Ohio State,� Angela Carrillo said. “My husband was like, ‘This is a sign you’re going to be OK, and this is a sign that Ohio State is the school for our daughter and that she’s going to be OK if she commits out there.’� Evelyn Carrillo had made her decision: she would be going to school at the alma mater of the doctor that would save her mother’s life. “It was a tough decision for me whether I wanted to stay close to home and stay with my family during those

hard times or go out and explore a whole new world and know that everything is going to be OK,� Evelyn Carrillo said. “I had a lot of faith that my mom’s neurosurgeon was going to get it done for her.� Pikul performed a nine-hour surgery on Oct. 28, 2008, removing 95 percent of Angela’s tumor. The remainder was treated with radiation. Angela Carrillo required an eight additional surgeries to address complications from the first procedure, but she is now living a healthy life. “Thank God she’s here with us,� Evelyn Carrillo said. “Dr. Pikul is like part of the family now. He’s done so much for my mom and I cannot thank him enough for it.� Although Angela struggled with the transition after Evelyn Carrillo moved to Columbus, she said everything has worked out in the end. “I never doubted the school because Dr. Pikul had also spoke very highly of the school, I think it was just the distance (that) was hard for me,� Angela Carrillo said. “But when I saw her dressed up in the Ohio (State) practice uniform playing at the Buckeye Field, I knew it was the best thing for her. I knew Evelyn had made a great choice.� Now in her final season with the Buckeyes, Evelyn is leaving her mark in the history books of the OSU softball team. Currently ranked 11th all time in hits with 198 and fifth all-time in RBIs with 142, Carrillo is becoming one of OSU’s best sluggers ever. But perhaps most importantly, she has emerged as an emotional leader for the team, just as she has done in her family for years. Sophomore outfielder and catcher Cammi Prantl said Carrillo’s strength is evident on and off the field. “You can always look up to Evelyn and know she’ll be there. She’s just a great leader,� Prantl said. “She’s that girl that you look to to pump you up.� With graduation right around the corner, Evelyn is at yet another crossroads in her life. “Now being a senior, I look back and I know I’m going to miss it all. I’m already having withdrawals (from) playing and it’s not even over yet,� Evelyn Carrillo said. “It’s been a great experience for me in Ohio and I’m really going to miss it.� With everything changing in Evelyn Carrillo’s life once again, Angela said she expects her daughter to handle any future adversity with the maturity she has always had. “She’s definitely looking forward to graduating, getting her bachelor’s degree, coming out here and experiencing the world,� Angela Carrillo said. “She’s ready to close this chapter and move on and see what life is really about.�

sports After taking looser approach, OSU baseball set for stretch run KANE ANDERSON Lantern reporter With the most treacherous part of the Ohio State baseball team’s schedule already in the books, the Buckeyes are left with a severe limp. After midweek losses at West Virginia and at home against Ball State, OSU sat only four games above .500. The team’s preseason goal of making the NCAA Tournament was quickly slipping away. But the coaching staff lightened the downtrodden mood of the team with a wiffle ball contest before its weekend series against the Murray State Racers, which might have helped the team pick up a pair of wins. “I know we’ve been grinding lately and, obviously, losing isn’t fun. That was really nice to do,” redshirt-junior pitcher and first baseman Josh Dezse said on the team stepping away to enjoy the game of wiffle ball. There were high expectations heading into the season for the Buckeyes, as they were picked to finish third in the Big Ten. After a 4-0 win against Marshall on March 26, the Buckeyes sat at 16-7, and their goal was very much intact. Then the wheels began to fall off. OSU got swept at home in their next series against conference leader Indiana. The weekend after, they were swept on the road at Nebraska with each loss only coming by one run. The team was demoralized. The Buckeyes seemed to put it behind them the next weekend, taking two of three from Penn State, but then losses to West Virginia and Ball State happened.

Review from 6A The champions Even though perhaps the most popular sports failed to pick up any championships this past year, other Buckeyes did. The synchronized swimming team won the 2014 U.S. Senior National Championship; the men’s tennis team won its first ever National Team Indoor Title in February and also clinched a share of the Big Ten Title for the ninth straight year. As mentioned before, Steiber won his third consecutive wrestling National Title and the men’s lacrosse team grabbed a share of the regular season ECAC crown after defeating Air Force Saturday, 8-6. The OSU pistol team also snatched its sixth NRA Intercollegiate National Championship March 13.

Before this past weekend’s series against Murray State, coach Greg Beals told his players to forget about every game they had played because they were going to start over. That was the reason for the wiffle ball practice Thursday. “When we play wiffle ball, it’s just fun,” redshirt-sophomore utility infielder Nick Sergakis said. “We’re all goofing around and we get a feel for how the game should be played … there’s no pressure.”

New coaches Numerous programs saw a changing of the guard on their coaching staffs, as men’s hockey coach Steve Rohlik and women’s tennis coach Melissa Schaub shed their interim tags and took over on a full-time basis. Rohlik led the Buckeyes to the conference championship game of the inaugural Big Ten Tournament where the Buckeyes fell to Wisconsin in overtime, and Schaub guided her team to an 18-7 regular season record in preparation for the Big Ten Tournament, which is set to commence Thursday. A pair of other coaches — women’s basketball’s Kevin McGuff and diving’s Justin Sochor — also came to OSU prior to their seasons’ starts. Sochor became the next man in line behind Vince Panzano, who retired after 35 years at the

They started they called a “new” season off well by taking two of three against Murray State. “We had a different mindset this weekend,” Dezse said after Sunday’s rubber match victory against the Racers. “Coming into this weekend, it was the mentality that we’re just playing wiffle ball. That we’re just out playing a game with each other and it was nice to see us play loose, play fast and fun.” Another thing the Buckeyes did Sunday before their series-clinching win was a “Remember the Titans”-esque warm-up. After going through their typical pregame routine, the players got in a circle and began dancing. “We were doing our doubles signs,” freshman outfielder Ronnie Dawson said. “We were just, like, ‘Let’s try something new today.’ We got in a circle, then we started clapping. It was right at that moment, we just made that up … just to loosen everybody up.” The easier part of the conference schedule is set to begin with a road trip to Purdue this weekend and a series against Big Ten last place Northwestern May 15-17. “The toughest part of our season is behind us,” Sergakis said. “We’re resurrecting our team … We just have to progress every day to get better for the Big Ten Tournament because that’s when it really matters.” Currently the Buckeyes are 1 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the eighth spot in the conference standings, so OSU cannot afford another bad weekend that could drop it deeper in the standings. Each game left could make or break their season. “Playing one game at a time. These guys are very aware of what they need to do,” Beals said. “From a management standpoint, I got to keep them in their lane and keep them in their shoes … don’t think about all 15 (games left) we want to get.” The Buckeyes’ first game against the Boilermakers is scheduled for Friday at 6:35 p.m. in West Lafayette, Ind.

helm and McGuff took over for Jim Foster, who was ‘terminated without cause’ March 19, 2013. McGuff’s Buckeyes finished the season 17-18, but made a run to the Big Ten Tournament’s semifinals before falling to Iowa. The OSU Spirit Squad also has a new head coach in Ben Schreiber, who returns to his alma mater after spending five years at the University of Delaware. Schreiber replaces former head coach Lenee Buchman, who was terminated “for cause” Nov. 25 following a sexual harassment investigation involving former coaches and a former cheerleader. The rest Multiple teams are knee-deep in their spring seasons — baseball, softball, men’s and women’s

lacrosse, men’s and women’s tennis and track and field — but the women’s rowing team and men’s and women’s golf teams are just getting their seasons going. The rowing team captured OSU’s first women’s NCAA team title in June, and is looking to add another title to the list this year. The men’s soccer team finished the year 5-8-4, while the women’s team was 10-7-3, falling to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament in November. Much like the football and men’s basketball programs, the women’s volleyball team started off well only to falter at the end of the year. After winning their first 14 matches this past season, the team finished 18-14. The men’s team fell to IPFW, 3-0, Saturday in the first round of the MIVA Tournament to end its season 11-16.

The Truth about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement


Does it stand for Middle East peace or does it seek Israel’s destruction? Leaders of the effort to boycott, divest from and apply sanctions against Israel—the so-called BDS movement—say they stand for an “end to the occupation of the Palestinian territories,” “justice in Palestine” and “freedom for the Palestinian people.” But what are the real motives of BDS leaders—do they really want peace between Israel and the Palestinian people?

What are the facts?

While the BDS movement uses highly emotive The third telling fact about the BDS movement is language in their appeals for support—such as “ending that it consistently and vehemently opposes any efforts repression” and “Israeli war crimes”—a closer look at to bring Israelis and Palestinians together to work in the real motives of the movement reveals a more peace and on peace. For example, BDS leaders advocate sinister goal. boycotting cultural exchanges between Israelis and First, note that the BDS movement focuses only on Palestinian artists. They condemn educational alleged war crimes and repression by Israel—and cooperation between Israeli ignores real war crimes and tyrannical repression by other Rather than a movement that seeks and Palestinian universities. Most revealingly, they oppose Middle Eastern nations and terrorist organizations. When peace and freedom, BDS is motivated peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian by an obsessive hate of Zionism. Hamas and Hizbollah target leadership, calling them thousands of rockets at Israeli “collaborationist.” civilian populations in violation of international law, BDS is not about “occupation.” In short, BDS is not BDS utters not a word of criticism, let alone a call for about peaceful coexistence or ending the “occupation” boycotts or sanctions. When Iran’s government of the West Bank. Indeed, Omar Barghouti, a graduate violently crushes peaceful protests and Egypt stifles its student at Tel Aviv University and BDS founder, admits, press and political opposition with a dictatorial hand, “If the occupation ends . . . would that end support for BDS is likewise silent. Why? BDS? No it wouldn’t—no.” By singling out Israel for criticism and economic Not only do BDS leaders admit this, but they pressure, BDS employs a double standard—a implacably support the “return” of nearly five million hypocritical and dishonest tactic frequently used by descendants of Arab refugees who left during Israel’s anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hate groups. war of independence in 1947. In fact, most of these The reason, as we’ll see, is that the BDS movement is Palestinians are not truly refugees—fully 95 percent of not really interested in alleged war crimes or repression. them have never set foot in Israel. Rather its purpose is to delegitimize and then destroy Most importantly, the immigration of millions of Israel. Arab refugees’ descendants to Israel would make Jews The second critical fact about the BDS movement is a minority in their own state. As President Obama has that while it masquerades behind words like “freedom” correctly noted, “The ‘right of return’ would extinguish and “occupation,” one need only listen closely to its Israel as a Jewish state, and that’s not an option.” Yet rhetoric to realize that these are code words for the destroying Israel by flooding it with millions of elimination of Israel. Palestinians is precisely what BDS leader Barghouti BDS leaders oppose a two-state solution—why? insists upon: “This (the right of return) is something While the United States, Western European powers, we cannot compromise on.” Israel and the U.N.

sports Defense from 6A During his two seasons with Wisconsin, Ash was part of a Badger secondary that finished 18th (2012) and fourth (2011) in the country in terms of average passing yards allowed per game. It appears that as coaches of the secondary, Coombs and Ash are clicking heading into summer. But as a co-defensive coordinator, Ash has to work just as closely with Fickell as he does with Coombs. “If I didn’t think that Luke and I could have a good working relationship and have great chemistry in the room, I would not have done it,” Ash said on National Signing Day Feb. 5. “To me, the players are going to feed off the coaches and we talk a lot about how successful teams have one thing in common: they’ve got great chemistry. You don’t have to be best friends or anything, but you’ve got to be on the same page, you’ve got to have a great working relationship.” Fickell agreed with his new colleague. “It’s been a great transition, to be honest with you. I know that we haven’t had the real stressors and the things of the reality of a season, but I tell you we’ve battled through a lot of things in the last month or so,” Fickell said March 6. “It’s been a great growing experience for me … That’s one thing coach Meyer likes to do, is get you out of your comfort zone, and having some new guys has made me do that, and has made me broaden things that we do.”

Fickell added it doesn’t matter whose job is what, as long as the coaches mesh as one cohesive unit. “We ask our (players) to be a ‘one 11.’ We ask them to play together, because that’s why this is the greatest team sport known to man,” Fickell said. “It’s not any different from coaches. It doesn’t matter with titles or anything like that. The thing that I think we’ve done a good job of, and coach has challenged us for about the last month, we’ve been in there battling through things that we’ll be on the same page.” Meyer, who at the end of last season said he was taking a more active hand in the defense moving forward, said the rebuilding of the defensive secondary is on the right track. “It’s going well. You’ve heard the term ‘overhaul.’ We’ve been pretty good against rush defenses the last few years, not very good against pass defense,” Meyer said March 25. “So we’re completely revamping the entire back end of how we do our business, and so far it’s been pretty good.” During Meyer’s first two seasons with the Buckeyes, OSU finished 78th (2012) and 112th (2013) in average yards allowed per game through the air, something the head coach is confident Ash will be able to fix. The coaching staff aren’t the only ones who

are excited about the addition of Ash, as defensive players are also happy with him so far. “I like him, I call him the mini coach Coombs,” junior cornerback Armani Reeves said April 3. “He’s like a younger coach Coombs, he still has all the energy. I love it. I’m happy he’s here enjoying it and hopefully he stays for a really long time.” Reeves added the coaches working together has “been a good balance” during the spring. Senior cornerback Doran Grant is another player who enjoys the changes Ash has brought to the program. “An aggressive personality, just going to get at it every day,” Grant said following the 2014 Spring Game April 12. “Just going and going and going. He is very precise in his teaching and I love that about him.” The team’s first chance to show off what Ash is bringing to the program comes Aug. 30 at noon, when OSU is scheduled to take on Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Ash said the only thing that matters when it comes to succeeding on defense is working together as a team. “When you talk about defensive staffs that have chemistry and work well together, when you get to game day, honestly, most of the people in the defensive staffs should be able to make the

“small-ball” lineup, playing Ross — and, before he left for the NBA, Deshaun Thomas — in the post instead of a true center like Williams or McDonald when they struggled. Although by NCAA rules a player is usually required to sit out a season after transferring, Lee can play immediately as a graduate transfer, since he is set to graduate from Temple in May. Thompson, on the other hand, will have to sit out for the entirety of the 2014-15 season. Although he didn’t play much during his freshman year at Virginia Tech — only averaging five points and 4.7 rebounds in 16.2 minutes played per game — Thompson is 6 foot 11 inches and, compared to Lee, built more as a center. Thompson announced his decision to transfer to OSU from his personal Twitter account, @TrevBallinTrey2. “Well it’s official I’m a Ohio State Buckeye Show Me Love #BuckEyeNation !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Thompson tweeted at 1:29 p.m. April 13. Matta said in an OSU press release April 18 that he is excited to bring Thompson into the program, even if he won’t be able to play until 2015-16. “Trevor has proven he is capable of competing at our level,” Matta said in the release. “He will be a very athletic big man for us. We are looking forward to having Trevor in our program.” 2014 recruit David Bell will also look to factor into the Buckeyes post game, coming in as a three-star recruit according to Rivals. com.

calls,” Ash said. “If everyone’s aligned the right way … If the defensive staff is aligned the right way, you’re preparing the right way, and everybody has ownership on what you’re doing, calling on game day isn’t really that difficult to be honest with you.”



But another player could prove to be the wild card in the discussion about centers next season. Myles Turner, senior at Trinity High School in Euless, Texas, is a consensus five-star prospect and one of the top players at his position. Turner has yet to declare to a school yet, but has shortened the list to seven teams, one of which is OSU. In an interview with Jeff Borzello of, Turner said OSU needs help at center and that he likes what Matta is doing as coach. “They need a big as well. They don’t have a true center at this point,” Turner said in the interview. “Coach Matta, I really like him and his whole coaching staff. I’ve talked to them, they’re one of the schools that I’ve talked to the most.” Turner is set to announce his decision April 30, with the final seven schools being Duke, Kansas, OSU, Oklahoma State, Southern Methodist, Texas and Texas A&M. If Matta does manage to bring in Turner, it would bolster an already highly ranked class that includes guard D’Angelo Russell, forwards Keita Bates-Diop and Jae’Sean Tate and Bell. Matta said back in November that he was happy with the way the class was shaping up. “(I’m) just very, very excited about this class,” Matta said Nov. 13. “I think the biggest thing with this particular class is we got what we wanted.” Whoever it is that does take the reins for OSU at center next year likely will be helping the team attempt to improve on its earliest postseason exit since the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

amanda etchison Lantern reporter Gotham City, Krypton and … Columbus? Although Ohio’s capital city might not initially seem like a typical comic book setting, a new project is localizing the art of comics and incorporating the spirit of a community into the adventures that fill its pages. The “Weinland Park Story Book” project is a “hand-illustrated, limited edition publication” that is set to tell the stories of the Weinland Park area, according to the Ohio State Wexner Center for the Arts website. The book is set to include more than 100 stories and anecdotes collected from residents of Weinland Park, accompanied by illustrations created by children who live in the area, as well as professional artists. “It is a graphic anthology of different styles of drawing, different stories and different perspectives on one particular neighborhood,” said Jean Pitman, educator for youth programs at the Wexner Center. Pitman said the book is set to contain approximately 150 pages of artwork contributed by 40 different artists. The project was funded by the Wexner Center, Cardinal Health Foundation and independent donations through the Greater Columbus Art Council’s crowd funding platform,, Pitman said.

It is a graphic anthology of different styles of drawing, different stories and different perspectives on one particular neighborhood. Jean Pitman Educator for youth programs at the Wexner Center Weinland Park is a Columbus neighborhood defined by the boundaries of High Street, Fifth Avenue, Chittenden Avenue and the railroad tracks on the east boundary. According to the Weinland Park Community Civic Association website, the neighborhood was founded more than 90 years ago to serve individuals who utilized the streetcar system to travel to jobs downtown. Weinland Park also served employees of manufacturing industries who worked along the railroad lines that mark the eastern boundary of the neighborhood. The neighborhood now has high levels of poverty, but Pitman said she thinks the neighborhood is in a period of transition. “It was very interesting to me that this neighborhood has been changing so dramatically in such a short period of time,” Pitman said. “It is just a very interesting transition point in a neighborhood that I thought would

make a great sort of intersection for artists to interpret.” Pitman said she was approached in 2012 by two women from Weinland Park who asked her to consider their project proposal for a graphic anthology detailing the history of their community. Throughout the summer of 2013, Pitman and a group of Wexner Center interns visited Weinland Park to collect stories from residents, she said. “Mostly I just physically walked the neighborhood with a group of youth that I worked with that summer,” Pitman said of collecting the stories to include in the book. “We ran into people, we bumped into people, but we also made some appointments with some elders and community members.” Amin Ebady, a student at Columbus Alternative High School and a resident of Weinland Park, said he helped Pitman collect stories from members of the Weinland Park community. “At the time when we were going around gathering stories, I was mostly the ambassador from the Wexner Center for Weinland Park,” he said. Ebady said he also contributed a couple of comics to the “Weinland Park Story Book.” “I had the chance to draw my own story,” he said. “It was the story of me sledding

We Are Scientists hope to bring ‘new love’ to The Basement Art, technology to

intermingle in exhibit

andrew zistler Lantern reporter The New York-based alternative rock band We Are Scientists is aiming to bring a live experience unlike any other to the Columbus stage. They hope to invoke feelings of a “new love” by creating an intimate, audience-involved show, the likes of which they said are rare in today’s music industry. Established as a side project to “have a hobby,” We Are Scientists formed in 2000. The current touring group consists of vocalist and guitarist Keith Murray, bassist Chris Cain and percussionist Keith Carne. “It (the band) certainly was unexpected. In the early days, we absolutely didn’t start the band because we thought it would be a good career idea,” Cain added. “It was good way to kill time and have a hobby. It’s not like it happened overnight either. We formed the band in 2000, so 14 years is plenty of time to learn how to play the bass.” The group is slated to play at The Basement Thursday. Murray explained the band began in a different form, and throughout the years it has taken up inspiration from many artists. “I was the original drummer in We Are Scientists, when drums meant a damn thing in this band,” said Murray with a laugh. “I think the two greatest vocalists, Dave Grohl and Phil Collins, both started out the same way.” Cain agreed, saying the members never started out to create a popular band, and their current success was unexpected. He said when they formed the band, he didn’t even know how to play an instrument. “I have no early musical career. I first picked up an instrument with We Are Scientists. Keith essentially taught me to play bass so that he could have a bass player,” Cain said. Cain also related the best part of playing music is creating a good live show for the audience, so much so that it’s a different musical experience all together. “You play a song a hundred times and you think you would get sick of it, and you do to a certain degree. When we have to rehearse for a tour, it’s almost agonizing to play the old songs because we’ve played them so many times, but playing them in front of an audience is a completely different experience,” Cain said. “Your experience is completely based on what the audience is thinking and feeling and how they’re expressing it. That’s something that makes every show different. It’s exciting.” Cain also said the live show is unlike many others, citing audience interaction as the main attraction. “We like to chatter in between songs. We like to talk to the audience and get them to talk to us. Hopefully it makes the show feel less like a rehearsed piece of theater to the audience, and more like a unique occurrence that they played a part in,” Cain said. He also claimed the band’s show had the potential to be a life-changing experience. “We’re gonna change the audience members’ lives. Anyone who hasn’t

We give you that with our show.” Carne said We Are Scientists brings an interesting blend of talent to the stage, and it’s something which you won’t be able to find in many other places. “Where else can you get a blend of dancing, Don Rickles, Don Henley and Nirvana?” Carne asked, then said, “The We Are Scientists show, that’s about it.” Tickets for Thursday’s show are at $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show. The Basement is located at 391 Neil Ave.


Art and technology are set to mingle in a modern student showcase at Ohio State. SQUINT, the art and technology spring exhibition, is set to open Tuesday on the first floor of Hopkins Hall. The exhibition features work from undergraduate and graduate students currently taking classes in art and technology at OSU. Shirley Wu, a third-year in art, said the process for students to display their work at the exhibition is challenging. Wu said students submit their pieces to be judged by their instructors and are then selected for a spot in the exhibition. The art and technology major, a division of the department of art, has allowed some of its students to experiment with their artwork. “The fact that I am able to experiment with my work in the way that I am is awesome, real world experience,” said Gus Dieker, a third-year in art and technology. Dieker said he has created a couple of robotic sculptures he hopes will be chosen for the exhibition, but is looking forward to the student reaction from his video project. “My video is actually pretty weird,” Dieker said. “I was doing a lot of glitch art stuff and I wanted to make something pretty aggressive and shocking.” Yuhui Qi, a third-year in art and technology, said in an email that in a previous OSU art and technology exhibition she presented 3-D modeling render prints. This year, Qi said she submitted a moving image project and a 3-D modeling object and print. Qi said some students might be confused by the pieces if they do not have background knowledge about this style of art. “I think most art students, specifically art and

of two preteen boys named Sam and Syquee. In the comic, both boys claim to be the best basketball player in Weinland Park, Summers said. Summers said he was provided with photographs of both boys and tried to base his comic’s characters off of this historical information. “I liked how (the project) ties together not only the present Weinland Park, but the past Weinland Park and the people who are still there,� he said. “It ties together the (neighborhood) and all its historical factors. It tells the story of (this community) in a coherent manner through all of these different voices.� The variety of stories and diversity of artistic styles is something that appealed to local graphic designer and contributing artist Katie Valeska. “I know it is a collection of a really wide range of artists and styles,� Valeska said. “There’s a lot of diversity in the neighborhood of people and histories and backgrounds. It will be really interesting to see those represented in the different kinds of styles and with a lot of love from each of the artists.� Valeska illustrated a piece titled “Good Morning,� which tells the story of a boy who wakes up to find a bird flying around his room. In addition to its inclusion in the “Weinland Park Story Book,� Valeska’s “Good Morning� piece was also chosen by the Wexner

Center to be featured as a mural in the Short North. It is displayed at 1204 N. High St. as part of the Short North Arts District’s “Viewpointsâ€? public art exhibition. “Just realizing the importance of this project has been really cool,â€? she said. “I’m just tickled that there is all this art down in the Short North and they wanted this big comic book page on the side of the wall. I think that is just great. I want to see comics all over the Short North.â€? Pitman said the book is set to be completed and printed by mid-June and 1,200 copies are expected to be distributed free of charge to Weinland Park residents. A summer release party is slated for June 29 at Godman Guild in Weinland Park. Pitman said the books will be distributed at this event. The final artwork from the “Weinland Park Story Bookâ€? is set to be donated to OSU’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Collection, Pitman added. “The comic book form is an interesting, very accessible, very democratic way in which to circulate information and share stories,â€? she said. “It is hard to contain this buzzing multitude that I feel like Weinland Park is ‌ and we just thought that a graphic anthology would really capture that.â€?

[ a+e ] Ron Pope to perform songs with ‘emotion that people understand’ THY THY NGUYEN Lantern reporter Alternative artist Ron Pope said it is thrilling have his music featured in other mediums, such as on television and movies. Pope’s music has been heard on shows such as “The Vampire Diaries” and “90210.” “It’s really enjoyable to see other people that are creating different kinds of art, whether it’s people who are dancers, or people who are making television shows or movies or whatever and they’re including the music. When I’m making music, I’m going to record the songs, people are going to listen to it in their house and maybe they’ll get to see me on tour and maybe I can play the songs for them. So, it’s exciting to see the songs repurposed. It’s flattering. Other people that are creating art want to include my music in what they are doing,” Pope said. Pope is set to bring his television-famous music to The Basement Wednesday with doors opening at 7 p.m. Pope said he’s able to play many instruments, but focuses primarily on the guitar. As an artist, he enjoys touring nationally and internationally. “It’s incredible. I use to go on the road and play for almost no one and now we go out and people show up every night. They’re very excited. They line up. That’s really the kind of credible change I guess that’s happened for me in the last couple of years. It’s wild. I use to be able to get seven of my friends to come and sit watch me play in a café in New York City and now if I go to Stockholm, thousands of people could come,” Pope said. He added that it is amazing to see fans that show up to his concerts on a Tuesday, no matter what the weather. “That’s pretty incredible. We show up in Cleveland on a Tuesday in a snowstorm and people show up. And, that’s neat. It’s something that’s unexpected and exciting. You hope for it starting a career but you don’t ever know that it will ever really happen where a couple of shows are going to fill out and people are going to be excited. That’s something that’s really special that I’ve been really blessed about over the past few years,” Pope said. Pope also described the process of how he writes his songs, often beginning with a small idea. “I write my own songs. Sometimes, it (the song) starts with a riff, a melodic idea. I would be walking on the street and hum something or sitting at my piano or my guitar fiddling around, coming up with something. Sometimes it’s words that come first, sometimes it happens all at once,” Pope said. He even wrote a song in the shower once. “I once wrote an entire song called ‘In My Bones.’ It’s from the ‘Atlanta’ album. I wrote the entire song in the shower,” Pope said. “While I was in (the shower), I started humming, I kind of heard the chords in my head and the words. So, when I finished the shower, I got out, wrapped myself in a towel, sat down at the keyboard and played the whole song all the way through. That was pretty incredible. The moral of that (story) is that songs come from a lot of different places. It depends on the songs. It could be (from) any number of directions.” He also focuses the themes of his songs on what it means to be a human being, Pope said. “In terms of the themes of my songs, I try to just pay attention, and

Alternative artist Ron Pope is set to perform at The Basement April 23. that kind of holds through for everything. I kind of want to focus on the fundamental elements of what it means to be a human being, things that everybody gets. And so regardless of what the story is within the song, there’s some kind of specific central theme that everyone can understand. So, whether you’re a 5-year-old boy or a 90-year-old woman, whether you’re a 45-year-old guy who works for Wall Street and has three kids, or a stay at home mom, or a girl at college, or whatever, like anybody understands love, hope, faith and desire. I want to figure out an emotion that people understand and then tell a story that relates to that. So, hopefully everyone can get it. So, it’s not just the people who have been there,” Pope said. Lauren Szymczak, a first-year in psychology, said she would go see the concert. “I like his voice. He has a good style to his music. I like the lyrics,” Szymczak said.

One student particularly enjoys Pope’s song “A Drop in the Ocean.” “I was looking through music on Spotify and I came across it. It definitely stood out. His voice is kind of rough. But it’s soft at some points,” said Sharon Lu, a first-year in engineering. Laine Amendolara, a second-year in health sciences, said Pope’s music is approachable. “Yeah, I like that kind of music. It’s easy to listen to while you’re studying or while you’re hanging out,” Amendolara said. Tickets for Wednesday’s show are $15. The Basement is located at 391 Neil Ave.

Rigsby’s Kitchen worth the splurge ELIZABETH TZAGOURNIS Lantern reporter Rigsby’s Kitchen is a hip, little Italian and Mediterranean enclave within the Short North. The art and photographs hanging from the aged brick walls and the dimmed lighting combine to give a warm ambience in this trendy establishment. Soft, popular music filled the one-room restaurant and provided great background noise paired with the many conversations at each table of guests. Opened in 1986, the restaurant prides itself on the rich, local ingredients from the best food vendors around. This fresh, high quality is one aspect evident in our meals. The menu boasts their commitment to seasonal excellence with a “Farm to Table” section exhibiting a list of the “local farmers and artisanal purveyors” who provide the ingredients for their dishes. When we arrived around 7:45 p.m. for our reservation, there was a generous amount of people sitting at the various tables and bar and several groups celebrating birthdays. We began with sweet, warm bread that had a very natural yet unique taste which caught the attention of all in my party. It proved difficult to decide between the array of pastas, pizza and seafood dishes. The deviled egg trio ($5), topped with their popular smoked salmon and capers, was a definite favorite. I enjoyed another dish which showcased their delicious smoked salmon: the capellini natasha pasta ($22). All the

pasta is made from scratch and served with various toppings including anything from shrimp, scallops and clams in the pasutice pasta ($23) or smoked pancetta, or winter squash and cream in their perline pasta ($20). The capellini natasha came with smoked salmon, caramelized onions, capers, pepper vodka and cream and created a harmonious blend of flavors and textures that left me craving more. The capers were salted just so and added a flavorful mix to the palatable pasta. My favorite part was the smoked salmon and the ratio between salmon and pasta was close to perfection. This sometimes proves problematic for a seafood lover such as myself when a dish advertises “shrimp” or “crab” but comes with close to no seafood compared to the respective main dish. While the food impressed nearly all in my party, there were some complaints about pricing, the lack of salad choices and service that was not so excellent. Although an expensive meal, with a preset gratuity already added to the bill, my meal was definitely worth the splurge. Rigsby’s Kitchen is a satisfactory lunch or dinner choice in the Columbus downtown arts district. Easily accessible to students via the Central Ohio Transportation Authority bus system, the restaurant resides at 698 N. High St. Lunch hours run Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dinner hours are 4:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m Monday through Thursday, and 4:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant is closed on Sundays. Grade: B+


Pop culture relevance makes GIFs a new art form NICK ROLL Lantern reporter It turns out GIFs aren’t just for BuzzFeed or your sister’s Tumblr anymore — they’re also for … London art galleries? When I saw a Facebook post titled, “A panel of judges selected these GIFs as finalists in a newly created photography contest. They’re mesmerizing,” I almost discredited any esteem and respect I held for the Washington Post on the spot. However, after clicking the link, I must say I was indeed mesmerized, not only by the artwork displayed but by the fact that I considered it artwork. The article showed the winner, Christina Rinaldi, and 5 runners up, which all showed a surprising amount of work and intention aimed at provoking emotion. I saw work I would expect to see from pieces exhibited in a gallery or museum, which I was shocked to see coming from the image compressing file used to show memorable scenes from TV shows or YouTube videos. The first ever Motion Photography Prize, sponsored by the London-based gallery Saatchi Art and Google+, had their judges spend 10 weeks going through the 4,000 entries from 52 countries. Sixty of them will be on display at Saatchi through May 24. Technology is always changing the art world, and GIFs are no exception. Just as technology expanded art by allowing photography, cinema, more advanced music and graphic design, technology has, in a way, consolidated the art of the movies and still photography to create a new combination. Although I initially was skeptical, I was proven wrong, and I hope that others will have similar reactions. Just because the GIF is typically used today largely as a way to put together funny videos so they can be displayed casually on BuzzFeed doesn’t mean they can’t be taken seriously. In fact, what I noticed was that the works displayed in the Washington Post had a hard challenge placed on them — tell a story or provoke an emotion using

SQUINT from 1B tech students, would enjoy the exhibition because this is a platform for us to discuss art and technology,” Qi said. Wu said she thinks students can benefit from viewing the different artistic mediums and projects shown at the exhibition. “There are a lot of different things that go on at the exhibition from robotics, to videos, to paintings and drawings, and we even have performance art,” Wu said. The exhibition also highlights the potential of OSU students in a setting outside of the classroom. “I think it (the exhibition) can show the campus a lot of the student’s potential and what they can do with what they have learned through the courses they have taken,” Wu said.

motion picture in a mere matter of seconds, as opposed to minutes or hours, as is found in typical short films or full length motion pictures. But as if that burden wasn’t enough, a GIF still has to be visually appealing in the sense that a still photograph is. The demand of creativity and skill is certainly enough to merit the GIF’s exhibition in an art gallery and break the traditional outlook on the video format. The Saatchi exhibit isn’t even the first shot at getting GIFs recognized in mainstream art — Tumblr and auction house Paddle8 sponsored an exhibition during Miami Art Week in 2012. Some were more typical, light, and pop culture based, while others could have found their way to London. So will GIFs be the next big thing? Well, with their relevance to pop culture, style of mash-up of two established art forms, short presentation period and ease of access for museums or casual observers from home, all signs point to yes. While I’m sure they’ll face some flack, as the medium has been watered down with scenes anyone could throw together from the TV, I’m confident in saying that GIFs of original and creative content will be here for the long run, and I’m excited to see what they’ll bring to the table.

Wu said she thinks this exhibition is a good opportunity for insight on art topics that are unfamiliar to students. “I think it is a really wonderful show that students should experience at least once in their college career,” Wu said. The exhibition is free for students and is set to be open Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. An opening reception with refreshments is set to take place Tuesday from 5-8 p.m. Student-led gallery tours through the exhibition are set to take place each day from 3-5 p.m. Video screenings are set to take place Tuesday at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

studentvoice Editorial: Students should be 1st priority at Ohio State LANTERN STAFF

shelby lum / Photo editor

It’s easy for Ohio State to have an off year at one point or another in its 144-year history. The phrase that has been used by polite company is “a year of transition.” Everyone knows the backstory by now: then-President E. Gordon Gee stepped down in June, and in July, Joseph Alutto assumed the interim presidency. The several months that followed involved a search for OSU’s next leader, who was announced in January to be Dr. Michael Drake. That is the big picture of what has been going on at the university, and what will likely be the only thing many people can recall about the 2013-14 academic year down the road. However, it is only a basic snapshot of the year, and ignores the most important part of a university: the students. In a period of time consumed by the search for the next president, student interest and involvement in many ways was swept under the rug. For example, with all the transitioning happening, OSU dropped the ball on finding a Spring Commencement speaker and dropped the traditional means of selecting one by way of a committee. OSU was four to five months behind in its selection process, and because of this, Executive Vice President and Provost Joseph Steinmetz was put in charge of handing the selection process, and he very candidly explain what had happened in an interview with The Lantern. “It turns out in so much transition that was going on, the selection of a speaker came rather later than normal,” Steinmetz said April 1. Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” was selected as the speaker, to the dismay of many students who disagree with his political views. But to just talk about Matthews as if he is the problem would be a failure to recognize the real issue at hand: Students weren’t involved in the selection process. Roughly 10,000 students are expected to graduate May 4, a ceremony that will be marked by a keynote speech by Matthews and no one remembered to ask for student input. This signals a serious lapse in judgement and a divergence from the university’s core mission, values and reason for existence. This specific example has been identified as a problem by the administration and a solution has been identified to avoid a repeated offense in the future. A new committee has been drawn that will include three students — one selected by the Undergraduate Student Government, one selected by the Council of Graduate Students and one selected by the Inter-Professional Council. We challenge the university to never again allow students to become an afterthought at an institution that is built around – and for – them. The big picture of the university might have been focused on transitions over the course of the last year, but students spend a limited number of years on campus. OSU shouldn’t forget to recognize the importance of the small moments, the things students will remember. After all, we are the donors of tomorrow.

studentvoice Time at OSU, The Lantern inspires nostalgia, gratitude mANAGING editor for content

I’m a nostalgic person. I’m a fervent collector of ticket stubs, old notes and photographs. I like reminiscing because I’m fortunate enough to have so many fond memories to look back on, and I like to marvel at change and the way people grow. I’m not graduating this semester, and I’m not even at the age for it. I’ve attended Ohio State for three years, but I’m already nostalgic about all the changes that have come and gone in CAITlIN essIG my life, and I don’t think it’s ever too early to reflect on them. Ohio State, with its people and its opportunities, has impacted my life in too many ways to count. When I made a last-minute decision May 1, 2011, to become a Buckeye (yes, that was the very last day to pay my acceptance fee), I had no idea that I was on the brink of something so wonderful. When I stumbled through my first semester as an exploration major, I didn’t know I’d trip right into my passion for journalism. Yet now I can’t imagine doing anything else. Ohio State has taught me to be fearless. When I applied for a job as a Lantern editor more than two years ago, I was two things: under qualified and confident. I had no reason to be confident, except that Ohio State seemed like the kind of place where the impossible could happen. And it did. Since that day in March 2012 when I became the only freshman on The Lantern staff, I have not stopped growing. I’ve watched friends join the staff and leave, whether it be to a new job,

a graduation ceremony or a move across the country. I’ve pushed myself to learn and understand people who are different than me, in order to write fair stories about them. I have seen time and change through the semester switch and the passions of my friends. From one job title to the next, and two more after that. I’ve made sacrifices to spend 40-50 hour weeks in The Lantern newsroom, and I’ve learned the balance between sacrifice and reward. Do I sometimes wish I could join my friends for happy hour, or attend more concerts on weeknights, or spend more time dedicated to my schoolwork? Of course. But working at The Lantern has taught me the sense of pride that comes with hard work, and I wouldn’t trade my bylines or my resume for anything. Journalism has taught me more about myself and the world than any teacher, any textbook, any human being. I’ve become someone who asks questions and knows where to find the answers. While some say journalists are all cynics, I’ve actually grown to appreciate the world more through my time writing about it. I’ve interviewed professors, students and administrators, protesters, Boston Marathon survivors, police officers and musicians. I’ve talked to Urban Meyer, John Glenn, Ryan Gosling, Tina Fey and the president of Somalia. I’ve covered concerts, Board meetings, presidential visits, tragic accidents. Perhaps some day this will all get old. But I could not be more grateful for everything this incredible university and this award-winning paper have done for me. And as I prepare for my final days as an editor, I wouldn’t change anything about the past 758 days sitting behind a desk in Journalism 271. I don’t think it’s ever too early to be nostalgic. Lantern staffs, past and present, thank you. Ohio State, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. May we have another life-changing year in our future together.

Transparency important in Buckeye-enthralled campus culture eDITOR in-chief

It’s hard to describe the feeling of having only two finals, one paper, one bar crawl and a walk across the field in Ohio Stadium left of my time at Ohio State. It didn’t sink in that I was actually leaving KRIsTeN mITChell when I applied for graduation or picked up my cap and gown, but here on my last day putting out a newspaper as Editor-in-chief of The Lantern, it is finally starting to feel real.

I’ve dedicated a lot of time during my college career to The Lantern — about 2 1/2 years to be exact. During that time, there have been many sleepless nights, studying for exams I wasn’t prepared for, or in the worst of times, a campus blackout that led to the Journalism Building losing power and having to drag computers and hard drives to the SEL after midnight. Over the course of the time I’ve spent in The Lantern newsroom, I’ve met plenty of people who don’t like our newspaper and what we stand for. They think we try to write things that make the university look bad when, as a student newspaper, we should be highlighting the great things that happen on campus. I’m writing this to tell you that isn’t the point. The Lantern is intended to be the first record of history at OSU, for better and for worse. We work to serve our audience and provide them with the information that, as students, faculty and alumni, they deserve to have

access to. We aim to fight for transparency within the administration, the Undergraduate Student Government and every “task force” OSU can come up with. This year, The Lantern wrote extensively about OSU’s private contracts with Huntington Bank, Nike, Coca-Cola and CampusParc. We obtained performance reviews for athletic coaches and university leaders, because the community deserves to see what these individuals are like when they aren’t in front of an audience. We covered a student-reported incident of sexual harassment that led to the firing of two assistant coaches, and later, the head coach who failed to report it. We covered OSU’s private search for a new university president — and eventually broke the news that it would be Dr. Michael Drake. We have covered where OSU is spending its money, where the money is coming from and how it’s being spent. Because if we don’t search for this information, who will?

If you only ever want to read things that will reinforce your views and not force you to think critically about the university, then The Lantern isn’t the publication for you. But if you want a realistic picture of what is going on, good and bad, you have found a group of students who want the same. You don’t have to like The Lantern, but you should at least respect it, because you never know what you don’t know.
