For some Ohio State students, the refund offer for unused blocks at the end of the semester came too late, leaving them with piles of unwanted Poptarts and Easy Mac. According to a Nov. 29 email from OSU Dining Services, “at the end of the semester, we will issue a $3 credit for each of your unused blocks and post it to your BuckID cash.” One block has a $5 value at campus dining locations. The refund will be credited to students’ BuckIDs by Dec. 18. The email said the change was in response to “questions about your unused blocks” that had come from many students. The Residence Hall Advisory Council (RHAC) realized there was an issue with students having an excess amount of blocks and worked with Zia Ahmed, senior director of Dining Services, to find a possible solution, resulting in the refund. Ahmed said in an email the $3 per block refund “represents the maximum amount after considering fixed (and) overhead costs,” of meal plan operations. He said the blocks refund will mark the first time that he is aware Dining Services will compensate students who didn’t utilize their

For some students, the refund plan announcement didn’t come soon enough. Devon Brown, a third-year in psychology and sexuality studies, said she spent more than 150 blocks since returning to campus after Thanksgiving. “I spent all these blocks and then the next morning I get the email,” Brown

said. “I would have had almost $500 and now I get nothing.” Brown said she received an email from Dining Services before leaving for Thanksgiving break telling her the number of blocks she still had and this prompted her to spend them. She went to campus grocery stores

The 2012 Mirror Lake jump is estimated to cost Ohio State more than $46,335, according to figures given to The Lantern. Repairs to Mirror Lake and the surrounding areas will cost an estimated $24,600, said Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs. The public safety presence will cost an estimated $21,735, said Administration and Planning spokeswoman Lindsay Komlanc. “This includes police and security personnel presence, including that of outside agencies such as Columbus Police Department, medical and EMS (emergency medical service) personnel and traffic control,” Komlanc said in an email. Komlanc also said that the total cost is only an estimate and is subject to change. “This is an estimate of the expected costs, it is not the final cost, which is still being tabulated,” she said. Damage was done when an estimated 10,000 to 12,000 people jumped in Mirror Lake days before the OSU football game against Michigan.

People jump in Mirror Lake on Nov. 20, the week before the OSU football game against Michigan. The event will cost the university more than $46K. The participants left behind trampled grass, muddy sidewalks, discarded shoes and clothing, duct tape and trash. The Mirror Lake area was mostly cleaned before the next morning. OSU defeated Michigan, 26-21, to complete a undefeated season with a 12-0 record. Representatives of OSU Police, Columbus Division of Police, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Columbus Division of Fire, the Ohio Department

of Natural Resources and MedCorp Mobile Medical Services were present at the Nov. 20 jump. About 16 people were treated at the Wexner Medical Center emergency department, and 12 people were arrested in connection with the jump, said Deputy Chief Richard Morman of University Police. Cleanup after the 2011 jump cost about $25,000, with $19,000 worth of damage to the grass and landscaping. The remaining $6,000 in costs came

from the university compensation to employees who cleaned and restored the area, Paul Walsh, assistant director of landscape services, told The Lantern in a December 2011 article. The public safety cost of the 2011 jump was estimated around $23,500. Some students said they think the costs aren’t preventable. “If the university did sanction it, I don’t think that there’s any way they could make it cost less,” said Jennifer Pietsch, a first-year in animal sciences. “It would make more sense for the university to spend that money on something that they agree with more.” Isaac Folzenlogen, a second-year in computer science and engineering, thinks the money could be used to upgrade classroom materials. “There are plenty of other endeavors that are kinda struggling here. No matter what it is, there’s probably a better place the money could go.” To compare, the average tuition, room and board paid by an undergraduate student attending OSU’s Columbus campus is $20,429 for in-state students and $35,837 for out-of-state students, according to the OSU Undergraduate Admissions website.

When students die, OSU offers assistance emily tara Oller reporter tara.3@osu.edu When an Ohio State student dies, friends and family often don’t know what to do. That’s where representatives from the OSU Student Advocacy Center come in. Student Life’s Student Advocacy Center acts as the university liaison between OSU and the student’s family and friends when a student dies. So far during the 2012 academic year there have been three student deaths, said Karen Kyle, director of the OSU Student Advocacy Center. Eighteen deaths occurred during the 2008-2009 school year, a number that was matched in the 2010-2011 school year. There were 16 student deaths during the 2011-2012 academic year, Kyle said. Once Student Advocacy hears of a death, representatives wait a day or two before reaching out to relatives to ensure that authorities have contacted the family already, Kyle said. The center aims to ensure that any universityrelated questions are answered and the stress of academic finances is alleviated. It works with the University Bursar and Office of Student Financial Aid to close out any accrued debt and wipe out outstanding finances. “We apply university grants to those things,” Kyle said. The center also works with the U.S. government to close out any outstanding loans. “Anything families are worried about OSU-related, we are the one-stop shop,” Kyle said. Student Advocacy also works with friends and roommates during the time of crisis following a death. “We work to identify impacted students,” Kyle said.

This is done by looking at records and examining where the student lived, if they were in the Honors or Scholars programs or if they were an athlete. Once Student Advocacy identifies those who might have been impacted by the loss, representatives work with them individually or as a group to get the help that would be most beneficial. “(Student Advocacy will offer) definite immediate, urgent counseling if that is something that would be helpful to them,” Kyle said. Student Advocacy alerts the director of counseling to make room in the schedule for students in the office, or to schedule a meeting at a student’s dorm, house or apartment to accommodate groups if needed. Kyle said the counselors help students to process feelings and understand what resources exist. If a student who died lived with a roommate either off campus or in the residence halls, Kyle said the department makes sure to reach out to them. If a student is in a residence hall, Kyle said Student Advocacy will work with OSU Residences and Dining Services and the roommate in the event that the roommate wants to change rooms. If a student is off campus, Kyle said Student Advoacy works with landlords and tries to collaborate so another roommate isn’t left solely responsible for the entirety of the rent. Some students said they believe dealing with the death of a roommate should be discussed more so if the event happened, they would know where to turn. “They should advertise more,” said Lindsay McCarthy, a third-year in human resources. “If my roommate died, I wouldn’t know what to do.” McCarthy has heard that roommates in the dorms received help, but she doesn’t know about the help provided to off-campus students. She also said covering the student’s debt would be a big help.

The number of OSU student deaths peaked during the 2008-2009 and 2010-2011 school years.

“Covering the debt is really good. If your kid dies, their parent isn’t going to want to pay their debt,” McCarthy said. Student Advocacy also helps individuals and groups plan memorial services for friends. Kyle said they don’t do this for every student, but if Student Advocacy is approached, this is an option. Kyle said the university holds an annual memorial service each spring to honor and remember all students who have died the year before. She said the event is multi-cultural and the community is invited. “We particularly seek out those we know were impacted (to attend),” Kyle said.

campus As beards fall, testicular cancer awareness rises aLLISOn SLOnaKer Lantern reporter slonaker.15@osu.edu

As the month of November ended, off came the mustaches, facial hair and whiskers grown out for Movember. Students and faculty have worked together to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancers by growing mustaches last month. However, it all came to an end Friday. The Ohio State undergraduate student health organization Buckeyes for Public Health (Buckeyes4PH) held its first-ever Movember Gala PartĂŠ to recap the entire month and hand out its Movember awards at the Barnes & Noble on campus Friday night. At the event, awards were given for Miss Movember, Man of Movember, Mo-fessor of the year and Mo-team 2012. The award for Miss Movember went to Amy Acton, the adviser for Buckeyes4PH, who received a gift card. Stanley Lemeshow, the dean of the College of Public Health, took the award for Mo-fessor of the year. Lemeshow, who grew a mustache last month, received a mustache bow tie. After raising $2,088, The James team was able to take the award for Mo Team 2012. After a vote by the audience, Teym Seddik, an exchange student from France, was able to win Man of Movember for the mustache he grew all month long. He was chosen on Friday by audience members who voted for different men at the event and received a sash for his efforts. Leesha Bolton, chief of communications for Buckeyes4PH, said the group’s main goal was to raise awareness, and it was able to do that and more. “We knew in years to come funding and getting people to participate is something that will grow on people,â€? Bolton said. “Once people see somebody with a mustache it sets an example and more guys want to participate next year.â€? This year Movember had more than 130 registered participates on its website, and Bolton said in an email they were able to raise about $5,500, without adding in the fundraising nights they had at Raising Cane’s and Cuzzins Yogurt. Although the group was able to exceed its fundraising expectations, Bolton said it has even higher hopes for next year. “Next year we hope to make all our events larger, increase funding and so much more,â€? Bolton said. This year Buckeyes4PH was able to get Dr. James Jacobs, director of Student Health Services, to do

Bolton said about 15 men received screening this year. Jacobs talked at the gala event about how important it is that men go and get tested for testicular and prostate cancers because both are treatable diseases. “Testicular cancer is almost 100 percent curable if you can catch it in time,â€? Jacobs said. Jacobs also said those who aren’t professionally tested can perform self-tests to stay aware of their body. Lastly, Thomas Thulesen, an exchange student from Denmark studying business who helped bring the idea of Movember to the United States, talked about how men need to work to eliminate the stigma about going to the doctor to get tested. “We try to add the fun part, mustache on one hand, but we are actually here to talk about the important things,â€? Thulesen said.

The familiar Ohio State Science and Engineering Library nickname the “SELâ€? will soon be outdated as the building is renamed the 18th Avenue Library. After taking suggestions from students, faculty and staff last Spring Quarter, finalist names were emailed to representatives from the College of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, the department chairs for the School of Music and Department of Dance, and University Advancement to gather input, said Larry Allen, spokesman for University Libraries, in an email. They settled on the 18th Avenue Library. “We’re not sure what will be coming down the road in terms of how that library will evolve, so we didn’t want a name that tried to represent all the subjects and so we wanted a name that would live longer into the future kind of as that building continues to evolve and change,â€? said Carol Diedrichs, director of University Libraries. Diedrichs added that the new name for the building open 24/7 and located at 175 W. 18th Ave. might not be permanent. “We consider it a transitional name ‌ We hope that someday there might be a donor after whom the library would be named,â€? Diedrichs said. The name change will go into effect in January, Diedrichs said. “The Board of Trustees has approved the name already, but there’s a lot that’s involved in actually changing the name both internally and sort of how the computers work that show you where the collections are and the signage on the building,â€? Diedrichs said. “So we anticipate that we’ll start calling it the 18th Avenue Library in January, and I’m not sure yet exactly when the signs will change.â€? Diedrichs said that University Libraries doesn’t yet know the cost of the change because they have not looked into how much the signs changing and the extra staff time required to change the name will cost. SEL was the main library on campus from 2006-2009 while the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library was being renovated, Allen said. When the music and dance collections moved into the SEL in 2011 to prepare for the renovation of Sullivant Hall, their former home, serious talks about changing the name began, Diedrichs said.

The Science and engineering Library will be renamed the 18th avenue Library. “It was at that point that we knew that the current name was not an accurate reection,â€? Diedrichs said. The SEL also hosts the Digital Union, which provides support for teaching and learning with technology, Allen said. Some OSU students said they are not happy about the name change. “I’m not really a big fan of the name change since it’s always kind of been called the SEL, so I think it should just stay the SEL,â€? said Zach Saylor, a second-year in mechanical engineering. “The content of the library isn’t as important as the people that use it, and since (SEL) is on the engineering side of campus. I think it should be the engineering library.â€? Other students said that the name change is unnecessary. “I don’t think it’s necessary because I mean, just because music and dance are in this building, there’s a lot of other things in this building, too, not just music and dance,â€? said Laura Williams, a second-year in mathematics. “It should just still be called the SEL.â€? Williams said she thinks it will take a while for people to adjust to the name change. Diedrichs said she doesn’t know what students will call the library now. “One never knows what students will come up with,â€? she said.

Seniors lead Buckeyes to perfect season

For all intents and purposes, the 2012 Ohio State football senior class is gone, never to wear scarlet and gray in meaningful competition again. “It’s almost like you’re losing some of your children when they go away to college,� said first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer after the team’s season-ending win against Michigan on Saturday. “Our house is going to be empty.� Gone? Perhaps, but not forgotten. After all, it was their contributions that made the team’s run at perfection a possibility. Behind the strength of many of those 21 departing seniors, the No. 4-ranked Buckeyes (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten) clinched the sixth undefeated and untied season in program history and the first since 2002 Saturday with a 26-21 win against archrival Michigan (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) at Ohio Stadium. The 109th edition of The Game saw OSU, the Big Ten’s Leaders Division champions, claim its 44th win against the Wolverines. UM, eliminated from Big Ten title contention after Nebraska beat Iowa on Friday, still owns the all-time series advantage with a 58-44-6 record. With Saturday being the final game of the season due to the NCAAimposed postseason ban, one thing was evident within minutes of the final whistle following victory against UM — no more seniors.

Michigan 21

Meyer handed out several “thank you’s� during his postgame remarks, but the biggest thank you went out to those whose eligibility is up, players like Zach Boren, Etienne Sabino and John Simon. Theirs was an effort worthy of remembrance, Meyer said, and he plans to ensure that their memory doesn’t fade away. “I’m going to see to it when you walk into that Woody Hayes (Athletic Center) this team will never be forgotten, because they deserve that,� he said. It’s not hard to imagine why Meyer feels so strongly. Boren switched positions midseason, jumping from offense to defense when he left the fullback position to join a depleted line backing corps. Boren hadn’t played linebacker since high school but, in just six games, he tallied 50 tackles, including a team-high nine in the win against UM. One of those tackles was a bone-jarring sack of Wolverines junior quarterback Devin Gardner. Boren stood above Gardner after the hit, shouting and rattling his face mask just above Gardner’s. Sabino broke his leg during OSU’s Oct. 6 win against Nebraska but returned in time to join the team for its divisional-clinching win against Wisconsin on Nov. 17, as well as the game against the Wolverines. The redshirt senior linebacker said the 2012 season was indeed a dream. “I wouldn’t want it to end any other way,� he said. And there was Simon, a defensive end and the team’s emotional leader throughout the perfect campaign. Simon missed Saturday’s

continuations three times and stood in line more than an hour each time. But for other students the email came as a relief. “When I received that email, I had about 180 blocks left,� said Chase Ledin third-year in English and sexuality studies. “I tried really hard to get rid of them all, then when I got that email I was like, ‘Oh well, I don’t have to worry so much now.’� However the refund is “bittersweet,� he said, because “it’s BuckID cash so it’s not like they’re actually refunding it.� Ahmed said in an email that the refund money is coming from “Student Life’s Dining Services department� and that the amount is unknown because there is no current estimate of how many students will receive refunds. The university also announced in the Nov. 29 email that a smaller meal plan of 350 blocks will be offered for Spring Semester. Brown and Ledin both purchased the 450-block plan for Fall Semester but said they will switch to the 350-block plan for spring. Mackey said the timing of the refund announcement was one of the hardest things RHAC has had to deal with. RHAC began discussing the problem of excess blocks around the end of October. University administrators knew that if they made the announcement too soon, students would hold on to their blocks and try to get the refund, Mackey said. The blocks meal plan is new to OSU this academic year with the semester conversion and serves as a replacement to the swipes meal plan. Students were offered three meal plans for Fall Semester: Unlimited, Block-O and Traditional. The Unlimited plan consists of unlimited meals at traditional dining locations North, Morrill and Kennedy

commons and 10 blocks per week at any other campus eatery. The $2,650 plan also came accompanied with a $150 BuckID deposit. Two options were available under the Block-O plan: a 600-block plan priced at $2,550 and a 450-block plan for $2,175. The new 350-block plan will be available for $1,850 and, like the other two Block-O plans, will include a $150 BuckID deposit. The Traditional plan offers students 19 meals a week at traditional dining locations such as North, Morrill and Kennedy commons along with two additional blocks per week that can be used at other operations. The Traditional plan does not include any BuckID cash and costs $1,737.50. University Student Government President Taylor Stepp said students with excess blocks is a universitywide problem and an issue USG is also working to reform. “For parents, for the kids, for whoever is buying these meal plans, this is terrible because they’re not seeing an adequate return on their investment,� Stepp said. Students have been told that the refund system is being applied to the Fall Semester meal plan, but Stepp said he would like to see it continue. “I have not been told that this refund will stay in place,� Stepp said. Ahmed said the refund will not be issued again and “is a one-time adjustment.� Stepp said USG and RHAC will continue working to ensure meal plans fit students’ needs. “We’re going to be doing a lot of delving into exactly how many blocks students are using,� he said. Keeping education affordable is one of USG’s central goals this year, he said. “This is a step in the right direction,� Stepp said.

Speculation as to who the person is and why he has yet to come forward has only increased as a closed-circuit TV video of a man supposedly checking his winning ticket in Maryland has spread across the Internet. There were numerous winning tickets for smaller amounts in Ohio. According to the Powerball website, there were 304,427 tickets in Ohio that yielded a payout.

The 7-Eleven typically sells tickets to a usual crowd of customers, Estok said, but this time the crowd was a little different. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(There were) a lot more students than normal, because usually students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play big lottery, but this time they came in and played it,â&#x20AC;? he said. David Langhals, a fourth-year in consumer and family financial services, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a regular player, but decided to purchase some tickets last Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I play every once in a while, usually only when it gets big,â&#x20AC;? he said. Langhals and a friend bought four tickets and decided they would share the prize money if they won.

Immediately after buying the tickets, they were making plans on how they would spend the cash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were discussing what we wanted to buy and I went through explaining how if you do win one of these, the first thing you should do is put at least 60 percent of it into securities, bonds and stuff, that are going to be interest bearing,â&#x20AC;? he said. Langhals said if he had won he would have bought the house he lives in and turned it into the official house for Frisbee players, a sport he has been playing at OSU for a few years. But there were still many students who chose not buy tickets. Thomas Adams, a fourth-year in marketing, said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware that the jackpot total had exceeded $500 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay attention to the lottery,â&#x20AC;? Adams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chances are youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to win, so I usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it.â&#x20AC;? Adams said that even though he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play, he appreciates the tax revenue lotto generates and understands why people would buy tickets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people enjoy it itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a waste of money, but I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend money on it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The last Powerball drawing was on Saturday, and with no winners, the jackpot is up to $50 million. The next drawing will be on Wednesday.

Taylor Swift with her awards at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 12.

Over the past six years, Taylor Swift has blossomed from America’s sweetheart to global superstar, selling out arenas and sweeping award shows around the world. Since her self-titled debut album in 2006, Swift has taken America by storm with her relatable lyrics and seemingly countless tales of woe. For many, Swift serves as the muse of teenage heartbreak, soothing the broken hearts of the distraught from coast to coast. Her career then blossomed into follow-up albums “Fearless,” “Speak Now” and her most recent multi-platinum album “Red”, released less than a month ago. Her overall success in the 21st century music scene has been both unprecedented and has managed to transcend into the hearts of rap and rock lovers alike. With six Grammy Awards and 11 American Music Awards under her belt, Swift has not only managed to weasel into the hearts of millions of angst ridden, love-starved tweens and teens, but she has managed to become a powerhouse of success for both herself and her label. Her most recent chapter, “Red” sold 1.2 million copies in its first week alone, becoming the fastest selling album in more than a decade, and triumphed to be Swift’s third No. 1 album on Billboard’s charts. In addition to the success of the physical album, her upcoming tour is also enjoying landmark success. The “Red Tour” is selling out arenas across the country in merely minutes. Swift is also managing to sell out stadiums such as Ford Field in Detroit, which is almost unheard of for a solo 21st century artist (Lady Gaga has also been able to do so recently in foreign countries). Swift’s wild ride of success is simple: her music speaks to people. Swift has managed to find her niche in the music industry, and that niche happens

to speak to an expansive and staggering amount of people. Her songs speak to the 13-year-old with her first crush, the 20-year-old with his first heartbreak and the 28-year-old who has finally managed to find “the one.” Whether people want to admit it or not, we’re perpetually reveling with some level of romance. Whether it’s the girl that catches your eye on the Oval or your four-year anniversary with your significant other, romance has a way of seeping into our lives whether we want it to or not. And that’s where Swift comes in. Through her relatable lyrics and endless knowledge of both successful and failed relationships, Swift has a way of creating songs that are able to embody any romantic relationship, whether that relationship be positive or negative. Recently, Swift has come under some scrutiny for her perpetual relationship woes, begging the question as to when will she finally get it right? From her fling with Conor Kennedy to her most recently rumored beau Harry Styles of British boy band One Direction, America is constantly following the tales of Swift’s love stories. But let’s be honest, we love our Swift that won’t settle for anything less than her own personal prince charming. She’s trying to get it right just as much as we are, and we’re enjoying every musical step along the way. We’re growing up alongside Swift, and many teens feel as though her songs speak to their individual trials and tribulations. People look to Swift for both understanding and comfort during their saddest and happiest hours, which has made her the musical powerhouse that she is today. Because at the end of the day, if you’ve recently been through a breakup or any sort of hardship in the romance department, there’s a Taylor Swift song for that. Swift will be stopping in Columbus at Nationwide Arena on May 8 on her sold-out tour, and her most recent blockbuster album “Red” is available nationwide.

Unused block refund lost on some students LANTERN Columnist

regret. Although I do not spend all 10 of my provided blocks every week, I will not be receiving BuckID cash as reimbursement for my unspent blocks like students on a Block-O meal plan. Furthermore, it is generally agreed among students that on-campus food outside of Traditions dining locations is typically better and of higher quality. Having limited access to non-Traditions locations is also problematic because of issues with location and hours of operation. There are only three traditions locations on campus — North, Kennedy and Morrill commons — and they are strategically placed so that there is one for each side of campus. I live on South Campus and can easily access Kennedy Commons, but I rarely spend time on North or West Campus and therefore would have to go out of my way to eat at either Morrill or North. These locations close by 8 p.m. on weeknights and Sunday night and 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, which conflicts with my schedule. In comparison, many non-Traditions locations are open until 10 p.m. and are positioned in much more convenient locations for student activity. Next semester, I’ll be switching my meal plan to a Block-O one. Until then, I guess I’ll have to be bitter about paying extra money for a plan that I ultimately was frustrated and upset with. I hope next semester my roommate can treat me to some Chipotle with the BuckID cash he’ll be receiving in the coming weeks so I, too, can benefit from this refund system.

Lack of diversity doesn’t teach right lessons Letter to the editor The article “Some Columbus youth don’t see Ohio State as option,” published Sept. 18 in The Lantern, though more than two months old, still has me thinking and concerned about the current demographics at OSU. After reading the article and doing my own research, I’ve found that the disparity is far reaching. As the article states, the ratio of whites to blacks on campus is currently 85.6 percent to 5.8 percent, whereas the ratio in Columbus is 61.5 percent to 28 percent. As compared to the whole state of Ohio (with a white-to-black ratio of 83.6 percent to 12.4 percent) and the U.S. (with a white-to-black ratio of 78.1 percent to 13.1 percent), OSU does not even mirror the general population, though it claims to be a diverse and welcoming environment. The amount of blacks on campus has not even reached the double digits, while Columbus is nearing 30 percent. Also, out of the nine most popular public and non-historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) in Ohio (Cleveland State University, University of Akron,

Wright State University, Bowling Green State University, Kent State University, University of Cincinnati, The Ohio State University, Miami University and Ohio University), OSU ranks in the bottom three for the percentage of blacks on campus, just above Miami and OU. I believe it is the responsibility of the university and those affiliated with it (staff, students and media alike) to make this disparity a well-known problem on campus. In order to produce wellrounded global citizens, the first step is exposing our students to a well-rounded global environment. Being on a campus where there is more than 85 percent of one race does not produce the type of citizens that we claim. There is no doubt that OSU is a wonderful university, but there must be a more valiant effort to create the warm, welcoming, diverse environment that we claim to have. And the first step is unveiling the blanket of naivety and creating a dialogue about how to properly assess the deeply concerning demographics. Chasmine Anderson, second-year in public affairs

Snapchat, an app that allows users to share photos for about 10 seconds, is taking campus by storm.

Snapchat is an unnecessary, fun app, but photos’ resting place raises concerns Snapchat has taken over. The free iPhone or Android application is used 30 million times a day according to Forbes, and its presence HANNAH on campus BROKENSHIRE is undenibrokenshire.2 @osu.edu able . Some people might ask, why not just send a picture message? Well, that would take an extra three seconds, I can’t draw devil horns or a mustache on my face and the picture could be saved for future blackmail. Snapchat eliminates these problems since the image essentially selfdestructs after about 10 seconds. Perfect. Now all my friends can know what I look like when I’m not paying attention in class. Since the pictures can’t be saved — in fact you’ll be notified if someone attempts to screenshot the image — many have rushed to the conclusion that all snaps are racy and therefore must be deleted as soon as possible to avoid detrimental consequences. Come on. Forbes called it the “biggest no-revenue mobile app since Instagram,” high praise considering Instagram has reached 100 million users. But recent articles in the New York Daily News and the Chicago Tribune express concerns that the app increases every parent’s nightmare, the dreaded “sexting.” While I don’t pretend to believe that sexting

Last week, Ohio State University Residences and Dining Services sent out an email stating the university would issue a $3 credit for students’ unused blocks on their meal plans at the end RYAN BUSANSKY of the semester. busansky.1@osu.edu This decision, a result of the university offering meal plans with excessive amounts of blocks, seems like a valid solution for many students who are nearing the end of the semester with too many blocks. Many students were excited upon the announcement of this news, but I was not one of them. I am a freshman this year and currently function under the Unlimited meal plan. Under the provisions of this plan, I’m allowed to eat as much as I want at Traditions locations as well as use 10 blocks per week at other campus dining operations. I paid more than I would have for either 450 or 600 blocks (the only two Block-O plans available at the beginning of the school year) in order to reap the benefits of this flexible plan. Now I look back on that decision with

snaps don’t occur (probably on a daily basis considering more than 1 billion snaps had been sent as of Oct. 28), but to write off this app as simply a sexting tool doesn’t give creators Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy enough credit. According to the Snapchat website, the app’s purpose is to “make ‘social media’ fun again.” So sexting aside, is it serving the greater good? No. But it is fun and why scrutinize that? While I write this, I think I can spot at least three people in Bruegger’s trying to discretely snap and I have three unopened snaps waiting for me. Needless to say, Snapchat has infiltrated smartphones campus wide. The same way “Google” became a verb, increasingly I hear people saying, “Oh so-and-so just snapped me at work.” I resisted downloading the app when it first came out last year, but the incessant giggles from friends checking their snaps had me wondering what all the hype was about. Through my extensive research the conclusion is: it’s funny. I think it’s safe to say most students have a smartphone nowadays and, if you do, a lot of your time might be spent on various social media apps or texting friends, so why not add goofy pictures into the mix? My main concern is where all the pictures actually go — Snapchat officials say via their website that they have no access to your pictures and they just disappear. I think all of us using this app in what seems to be a battle of who can make the ugliest face want to know where in cyberspace all these images are being dumped. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see — something to keep in mind before you send that next snap. Oh, and in case you were wondering about that cheeky ghost mascot, his name is “Ghostface Chillah” according to Snapchat’s website.

While his show “Louie” might be bogged down with misfortunes, Louis C.K. attempted to stray from his negative roots and put a more positive twist on his stand-up for Ohio State students this weekend. He didn’t tone down the crude humor though. “Life is really an amazing gift. You get a body and you get to be on Earth. You get to look at s---. And you can take stuff and just put it in your mouth, like bacon and caramel and go ‘Ughhh.’ You get to f---. That’s free if you’re smart,” C.K. said at an Ohio Union Activities Board-sponsored event in Mershon Auditorium Saturday. Taking the stage at about 7 p.m., the comedian, whose real name is Louis Szekely, received a roaring round of applause as he unhooked the microphone from its stand and greeted the crowd of almost 2,500 students, a few of whom formed a line as early as 12 hours in advance of the event’s start time. “It’s great to be here … Thanks for coming. Nice group of young folks,” C.K. said, slowly scanning the auditorium. “This is a nice place. The nicest place for many miles in any direction.” He kicked off his stand-up exploring the nature of offensive statements, explaining how people can still find a true statement offensive. “If you say things like, ‘More than three Jews have ever stolen,’ that’s just true,” C.K. said. “And people will be like, ‘Eww that’s upsetting. Why did you say that?’” C.K. also shared how simple jokes can still get laughs. “Can you make comedy out of a really simple premise? Like cars are so much faster than people. They’re way faster than people,” C.K. said. “Who’s the fastest guy? That guy (Usain) Bolt, the Jamaican? He’s really fast. A 1984 Honda Civic is way faster.”

For a few students, C.K.’s stand-up didn’t disappoint their expectations of seeing him live. “I had a lot of anticipation for the show because I’ve been following and watching his stuff for years. I was definitely super satisfied with how the performance went,” said Amanda Krasowski, a third-year in electrical engineering. “I like that he’s still your average guy, you know, hanging around in his sweatpant shorts and he still seems like your middle class guy even though he knows he’s rich and famous.” Holly Butcher, a third-year in English, said she was “blown away” from the event. “I was afraid that it wasn’t going to be any new material but every single thing he said was new. So that was fantastic,” Butcher said. Later in his act and on a more personal note, C.K. touched on his childhood and growing up relatively poor. “When your mom is poor, kids of poor parents are mean because they don’t give a s---,” C.K. said. “There’s no sympathy for your mom. You’re just like, ‘Mom, you suck.’” C.K. said that while he was growing up, his mother would buy “poor people food,” such as unsalted crackers, because he did not like them and that way the crackers would last longer. “When I realized that this was the principle that guided the management of my life, it was so depressing that we were going to get the s---iest possible things so that we can keep them,” he joked. “Oh god, why don’t you just s--- in the fridge and go, ‘That’s groceries.’” C.K. crystallized his shameless style at the end of his performance on a segment he called “Of course, but maybe,” where he introduced a popular idea and then he would describe the “maybe,” or the creeping suspicion in the back of his mind. Such as, “Of course the Make-A-Wish Foundation is a wonderful organization. They give a wonderful experience to a child who is going to die of a horrible disease. Of course that’s wonderful. … But maybe,

His writing credits include “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Dana Carvey Show” and “The Chris Rock Show.” His live-comedy album “Hilarious” was awarded Best Comedy Album at the 2012 Grammy Awards. His most recent feat, however, is not on the stage but on the screen. C.K. is the writer, producer and star of FX’s “Louie,” which won the 2012 Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series. C.K. said of his career, “Life gets better when you get older. It depends on the person. You add some wisdom and some income to this and it gets better.”

You have to get another thermometer, put it there, make sure it’s 350 (degrees). (For) my oven at home, 350 (degrees) was really 360 (degrees), so I had to lower it. And then it had uneven baking, so you had to bake in the middle shelf versus on the top and the bottom shelf, ‘cause it would burn at the top and burn in the bottom.

zach low Lantern reporter low.65@osu.edu The year’s end is upon us and, for my money, 2012 has been perhaps the finest year for film since 2007. With just less than a month of new releases left, let’s look back at some of the best and worst movies of the previous 11. January: The first month of the year tends to be a little rough film-wise. Studios dump their minor horror films (“The Devil Inside,” “The Divide”) early, and prestige pictures are nowhere to be found. “The Grey” received strong buzz early on, but this writer found the Liam Neeson survivalist tale to be more tedious than tense. Luckily, Steven Soderbergh’s taut spy thriller “Haywire” redeemed January with its punishing close-quarters fight scenes. February: Starring a post-“Potter” Daniel Radcliffe, “The Woman in Black” offered some legitimate scares but failed to fully capitalize on its spooky setting. “Wanderlust” was a typical David Wain comedy, with equal parts heart and raunch — Justin Theroux and Joe Lo Truglio were hysterical. March: While the success of “The Hunger Games” and failure of “John Carter” dominated the film discussion, the criminally under-seen “Friends With Kids” slipped through the cracks. Jennifer Westfeldt’s fantastically written romantic comedy is a real gem and worth catching on DVD. “21 Jump Street” seemed like a potentially terrible idea, but the comedic pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum was so strong that the film turned into one of the most pleasant surprises of the year. April: “The Five-Year Engagement” was a major disappointment, a rare miss for pretty much

everyone involved, and we will all probably forget that “The Three Stooges” movie ever happened. “The Cabin in the Woods” proved to be worth the wait (the film was shot in 2009, and shelved by MGM due to the studio’s financial problems), and was as hilarious as it was scary. Zal Batmanglij’s “Sound of My Voice” announced a major new voice in American independent cinema and featured a stunning performance from Brit Marling. May: May gave us “Moonrise Kingdom,” Wes Anderson’s first film since 2009’s “Fantastic Mr. Fox.” The charming comedy featured great turns from Bruce Willis and Edward Norton and was Anderson’s best-reviewed film to date. “The Dictator” was a soulless, one-joke satire from “Borat”-creator Sacha Baron Cohen, and “Dark Shadows” proved to be another in a long string of failures from Tim Burton. June: Oh, “Prometheus.” Ridley Scott’s sort-of “Alien” prequel was gorgeous to look at but was overstuffed with ideas, not many of which were good. Mark Duplass was the unofficial king of the month, starring in both “Safety Not Guaranteed” and “Your Sister’s Sister,” two of the best independent films of the year. July: July brought the half-baked “Savages,” Oliver Stone’s return to the kinetic action genre. Despite some ace supporting turns, the film failed to connect. “The Dark Knight Rises” was the epic conclusion in Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy that we’d come to expect from the smartest of all the tentpole directors. William Friedkin’s “Killer Joe” proved to be a nasty dark comedy, anchored by a fantastic lead performance by Matthew McConaughey. August: The gorgeous 3-D, stop-motion animated “ParaNorman” was a breath of fresh air in the family film arena. David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” hit like

a limousine, revealing a heretofore unseen range in “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson’s acting abilities. Similarly, Shia LaBeouf shed his “Transformers” smarm and gave an excellent performance in John Hillcoat’s Prohibition-era gangster film “Lawless.” September: Despite Rian Johnson’s excellent “Looper” and Steven Chbosky’s “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” which some folks liked but some couldn’t stomach, September belonged to “The Master.” Paul Thomas Anderson’s crushingly intimate epic actually did what critics claim any number of films in a given year can do — ­ it restored one’s faith in the power of cinema. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix give two of the best performances of this or any year, and some have been heard declaring “The Master” the best American film in more than a decade. October: Ben Affleck’s “Argo” was another solid, if unremarkable, flick from the actor-director but brought nothing particularly groundbreaking to the table. “Seven Psychopaths,” from “In Bruges” director Martin McDonagh, was like a cinematic shot of adrenaline, just bursting with clever ideas, witty dialogue and crazy performances. “Sinister” rested on the strength of a few good scares, but was never quite fulfilling. November: “Skyfall” was a gorgeously shot, tremendous bore, and I’ve already written about my love for Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” at length in these pages, so I’ll use my remaining words to recommend everyone give Andrew Dominik’s lean, mean thriller “Killing Them Softly” the chance it deserves. Don’t buy the ads selling it as a shoot‘em-up action film — this smart, wordy, gut-punch of a film has more in common with the great crime films of the 1970s than something you’d find Jason Statham starring in.

OSU volleyball season ends in NCAA loss DANIEL CHI Asst. photo editor chi.55@osu.edu Just like that, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team’s season is over. After sweeping Notre Dame, 3-0, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday in Lexington, Ky., the No. 14 Buckeyes were dropped at the hands of a No. 14 Kentucky team playing in their own backyard. In the second round of the tournament, the Wildcats (22-10) outlasted OSU, 3-1, Saturday night at Memorial Coliseum. The Buckeyes, who finished the year with a 23-11 mark, killed and aced their way to a 25-18 victory in the contest’s first set, though they didn’t seem able to carry such momentum. In what might have felt like a backand-forth period, Kentucky pulled off a 26-24 victory in the second match that propelled them past the Buckeyes. “We were under in the second game, but we came back and we got the lead,” said senior outside hitter Mari Hole. “It was just those few plays, they really got some good plays going. We weren’t able to respond right away, and they kind of just took the air out of the balloon at the moment. We kept talking like we really wanted it and we kept working through it, but we weren’t able to respond at the same level as Kentucky did and just kept pushing us.” The second set might have been crucial in terms of controlling pace and tempo. Senior outside hitter Emily Danks said it was a tough loss.

“It was rough because we had been rolling through that set, and I think we were feeling pretty good and it was just that moment of let up that they took control of the game — they grabbed it and ran with it,” Danks said. During halftime, the Buckeyes tried to regroup after losing set two, but Danks said it wasn’t enough. “In the locker room, our fellow senior (middle blocker) Mariah (Booth) really got fired up and kind of lit a fire, and I guess it was just a little too late,” Danks said. “It was a little disappointing to see it go down like that, but you have to give it to Kentucky for being so steady and aggressive with everything they did.” OSU coach Geoff Carlston said he knew going into this game that his team would have to defend and react well against Kentucky’s tough serves. It wasn’t the only thing that seemed to give OSU fits, though. “We knew they were a tough serving team. They are a little bit tougher than I thought they were when I watched video last night, but we knew that coming into the game,” Carlston said. “Really they won the serve and pass game. We knew that was No. 1. We had to win that.” Like Danks and Hole, Carlston emphasized the importance of the second set and said it might have been what cost the Buckeyes in the end. “Whoever won (set two) was going to win the match, and they did,” Carlston said. “Especially at the end of the second set, they kept it going in the third and fourth set and we didn’t respond very well.”

‘Coop’ heads to Rose Bowl Hall of Fame

The opportunities were there for OSU, though. “Our plan was to spread out, but we just didn’t pass the ball,” Carlston said. “We passed very well in the first set and first two sets up until the very end in the second set. We had some chances to win that second set, which obviously makes it a whole different match.” A rematch with No. 1 Penn State, which defeated the Buckeyes on Oct. 17 and Nov. 21, was something OSU was hoping for, along with advancing to the tournament’s Sweet 16 for the third straight year. For Danks, Hole, Booth and senior

setter Amanda Peterson, their journey as Buckeyes has ended, but in their time together they might have helped the program get to where it is today. Danks, Booth and Peterson have played in the NCAA Tournament four years in a row. Hole, who transferred to Columbus after playing two years at UCLA, joined the Buckeyes for her junior and senior seasons. This senior group has also led their team to the Sweet 16 twice, and the second round four times. With their conference record at 13-7, they finished fourth in the Big Ten this year, which is OSU’s best finish since 2009.

PAT BRENNAN Sports editor brennan.164@osu.edu Former Ohio State football coach John Cooper is heading back to the Rose Bowl to be honored for his success in “The Granddaddy of Them All.” Cooper will be inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame on Dec. 30, along with former Michigan quarterback Brian Griese and former USC lineman Ron Yary, according to a Rose Bowl release. Cooper remains the only coach to lead Big Ten and Pac-12 schools to Rose Bowl Game victories. In 1997, Cooper’s Buckeyes defeated Arizona State, 20-17, and he led the same ASU program to a 22-15 win against Michigan in the 1987 installment of the game. Cooper led the Sun Devils to a 25-9-2 record before coming to OSU where he posted an 111-43-4 mark. His 111 victories are second on the Buckeyes all-time career victories list behind Woody Hayes (238-72-10). In addition to serving as a scouting consultant for the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals, Cooper remains involved with OSU football as a coach emeritus. Cooper, Griese and Yary will be honored during the 99th Rose Bowl Game on Jan. 1, which will see Stanford play Big Ten Conference Football Championship Game winner, Wisconsin. Kickoff for the game is scheduled for 5:10 p.m.

TIM KUBICK / For The Lantern

OSU senior guard Tayler Hill drives to the basket against Evansville in a Dec. 1 game at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 78-33.

Ohio State women’s basketball returned to its winning form this weekend in a big way. After suffering a loss at North Carolina Wednesday, the Buckeyes rebounded against Evansville on Saturday at the Schottenstein Center, defeating the Purple Aces 78-33. The 45-point victory was the largest of the season for OSU, and every member of the team scored in the game. The Buckeyes also held the visitors to 10 second-half points. OSU senior guard Tayler Hill had 20 points and junior center Ashley Adams accounted for 14 points. “We refocused the last couple of days in practice,” Hill said. “Coming off the loss, there were some things we could have done differently. We focused on those in the game today.” The Buckeyes knew they had to be strong defensively to get another win, and using Hill on defense seemed to be the key. “I wanted Tayler Hill away from the ball more,” said OSU coach Jim Foster. “I like the defensive mentality of our group.” In order to keep Hill off the ball, Foster started freshman guard Ameryst Alston. The move paid off. “(Alston) is very confident, and I like

players who go out and get after it,” Foster said. “In this day, there are a lot of players who are anointed starters, and I felt like she earned it.” Alston said she wasn’t overwhelmed in her first start. “We are much more effective when Tayler is able to run and I can get the ball up to her. My job is to get the ball up to the offense,” Alston said. Strong defense seemed to carry this team throughout the end of the first half and the beginning of the second half. Not only did the Buckeyes hold Evansville to only 10 points the entire second half, OSU also posted a 23-0 run for the first 11:46 of the half. Hill said she hopes the defensive strength carries the team forward. “We had excellent energy today, and we didn’t give up a play,” Hill said. With more than a week off to practice for finals before their next game, the Buckeyes have their 27th consecutive home game win to motivate them. Foster hopes this defensive success brings more huge wins in the near future. “Defense is an important dimension to the team,” Foster said. “I like players who are comfortable with their knees bent in the defensive position.” The Buckeyes will continue non-conference regular season play against Lafayette on Sunday at the Schottenstein Center with a scheduled 1 p.m. tip-off.
