A selfless journey into 11 countries in 11 months living out of a backpack and spending the nights in a tent is pretty normal for the World Race racers. wJessica Guinn, Oklahoma State University 2014 agriculture leadership and international studies graduate, sets off on a trip that is said to change lives. While in the different countries, Guinn and her team will serve in partnership with churches and ministries in local communities to preach the Gospel, build churches, work in orphanages, minister to women and children trapped in prostitution as a result of human trafficking and show God’s love and grace to many tribes and nations. The purpose of this mission trip is to challenge

the Trial Court’s order. However, the two victims wish to move on with their lives after college and do not wish to go through the trauma of testifying again. PAge Tom Lee respects their decision and has decided not to prosecute further. news@ocolly.com

Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals, which was remanded and overturned on April 22, 2014. The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals ordered a new trial because jurors were exposed to and discussed several jurors’ personal observation of the crime scene in violation of

young adults to abandon worldly possessions and traditional lifestyle to understand that life is about serving others and serving God. Guinn heard about this opportunity in February 2013 when her Chi Omega sister, BreAnna Morris, mentioned that she was going to participate in the World Race. “When I was 15, I was at church camp listening to a missionary family from Africa speak about their experiences. I knew that God was telling me one day I was supposed to do the same thing,” Guinn said. The moment she read the description of the World Race, Guinn knew it was perfect for her. Since November 2013, she has been raising funds. The cost to participate in the race is $16,285. Guinn has reached her fundraising

deadline, however, some of her team still needs additional funds to launch. She will be leaving on June 29 for Atlanta, Ga. and will depart for Bolivia on July 3. During her journey, she will be going to Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Swaziland, Botswana and South Africa. Guinn will be returning to the United States at the end of May 2015. Guinn is most excited about the opportunity to serve others. Chosen to be a team leader for her team, Guinn will be leading 5 other women from the ages of 22-24. “I cannot wait to watch them grow and to live in community with them. These women are on fire for the Lord, and I know that they will accomplish great things for the Kingdom while in the

field,” Guinn stated. “I am a little sad about leaving my family, friends, boyfriend and OSU sports. It will be a tough goodbye, but I know that God has an amazing journey ahead of me that will be so rewarding. I will miss everyone here, but they will constantly be in my prayers,” Guinn stated. Guinn has never left the U.S. before and believes this trip will throw her curves and throw her into the unknown, but she is ready to charge at this opportunity headfirst. She believes God will be watching over her team and herself every step of the way. Follow Guinn’s journey or donate toward her mission trip on her blog jessicaguinn.theworldrace.org.

An Oklahoma State student was stabbed, robbed and abducted on Monday, Stillwater Police said Tuesday. Cameron Hunter, a junior wide receiver for the Cowboys, was approached by a white male with dark hair and stabbed at approximately 5:30 p.m. on the 1100 block of South Ridge Drive. The suspect pulled Hunter into a hunter green pickup, robbed him, and then dumped on the 1300 block of South Walnut Street. Sources say Hunter attempted to walk to his friend’s house before somebody spotted him, saw him bleeding and dialed 911. Hunter was treated at the Stillwater Medical Center and later released. He sustained a puncture wound to his abdomen and laceration to his right arm.

John Walsh, who coached Hunter at Denton Guyer in Denton, Texas, told ESPN.com in a text message that Hunter is “already home” and is “doing fine” following the incident. Stillwater Police Capt. Randy Dickerson said there is a suspect, but no arrest has been made. Hunter played at Denton Guyer High School with OSU quarterback J.W. Walsh, defensive end Jimmy Bean and former wide receiver Josh Stewart. Hunter walked on to OSU’s football team after being accepted to the United States Air Force Academy.

Leaving his legacy, one dollar at a time By Lindsay Gabler Staff Reporter

When someone’s profession is connected with students, retirement is more than just retiring; it’s leaving a legacy. Dr. Charles W. Bruce, who served as Director of Scholarships and Financial Aid, has been with Oklahoma State University since 1981. After 33 years of service to America’s Brightest Orange, he will be retiring in July. Before seeking professionalism at OSU, Bruce was Director of Student Financial Aid at DePauw University from 1978-1981. Before that, he served as Director of Student Financial Aid at George Peabody College for Teachers from 1975-1978. Bruce received a B.A. from the University of Kentucky, a M.A. from Morehead State University and a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University. Through Bruce’s 33-year tenure at OSU, Bruce has guaranteed over 500,000 students received $4.2 billion in financial assistance. He provided direction for three computer system conversions so the services to students and compliance with the university could continue. Bruce successfully competed for the first federal TRIO grant program awarded to OSU, followed three years later with a grant for the Educational Talent Search Program. The programs help firstgeneration and low-income junior high and high school students pursue postsecondary education. Under Bruce’s leadership of Scholarships and

Financial Aid, OSU has received national recognition for the quality of its financial aid program for two years, including awards for its Quality Assurance Program and for its student employment program. The office has been the recipient of the OSU Mortar Board Honor Society’s “Golden Torch Award,” for making “a noteworthy impact on the past, present and future students of Oklahoma State University.” Bruce has not only helped in receiving awards for the office, but he has also received individual awards. He has received state, regional and national awards including the Southwest Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators’ Distinguished Service Award, the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators’ (NASFAA) Leadership Award for the Southwestern Region and the NASFAA Distinguished Service Award. He has also been the recipient of the McFarland Outstanding Administrator Award at OSU. Bruce not only served as a director at OSU, but also served as an advisor for the National Direct Student Loan Coalition and as a member of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education study committee concerning financial aid issues. At the request of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education, he was granted administrative leave by OSU to analyze student aid policies and procedures. That’s not all that Bruce

did at his time at OSU. In 2002-2003, he served as chair of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA). Previous to that, he chaired the NASFAA Task Force on Professional

Excellence, and served on its Board of Directors, Association Governance and Membership and Finance committees. Bruce served as president of both the Oklahoma and Southwest Associations of Student Financial Aid Ad-

ministrators and served on the College Board’s Southwest Regional Council. Needless to say, Bruce had a passion for his profession and enjoyed learning, leading and teaching about his passion for financial aid issues.

‘22 Jump Street’ reaches heights of predecessors By Brandon schmitz Entertainment Reporter

Sequels to beloved comedies don’t exactly have the most reputable track record, as many of them are either slavishly faithful to the original or seemingly determined to betray its spirit. And though “22 Jump Street” is conceptually more of the same, it avoids many of the genre’s trappings. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the duo behind both the original film and February’s “The Lego Movie,” the sequel finds officers Schmidt ( Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) going undercover at a local college. While investigating a dangerous drug ring on campus, the two begin to explore separate paths, thereby calling their partnership into question. If the synopsis sounds like “21 Jump Street” in college, that’s because it is. That isn’t a knock against the film, however, as Lord and Miller acknowledge this fact with a biting sense of self-awareness. For instance, when Schmidt and Jenko are introduced to their new, high-tech headquarters, the former remarks “Wow, things just

got a lot more expensive for no reason.” The movie offers more than a handful of jabs at the nature of sequels without recycling all of the jokes from its predecessor. Certainly, “22 Jump Street” features its fair share of callbacks, but none of them feel as though they’re delivered out of a lack of creativity. Additionally, the movie tackles a wide variety of comedic styles, including slapstick, puns and ironic humor, all while retaining “21’s” good-natured humor. Ultimately, however, the scenario simply serves as a backdrop for the film’s two leads, as the back-and-forth between Hill and Tatum remains top-notch. Each complements the other’s comedic strengths while possessing natural, bromantic chemistry. Had this movie been about them sitting in a diner throughout its 110-minute runtime, it would likely have still been successful. The movie also has a solid supporting cast, with Ice Cube being given more to do this time around. His outbursts especially, which occur just frequently enough, provide some of “22 Jump Street’s” most memorable moments. Amber Stevens and Wyatt Russell are endearing as the

two main college students – you know, the actual college students – even if their chemistry with Hill and Tatum, respectively, isn’t as solid. If there is any weakness to the film, it’s that the two officers do spend a fair amount of time away from each other. Again, Russell, while appealing to Tatum’s athletic side, serves as a kind of kindred spirit, and Stevens and Hill make a cute couple. However, this movie excels the most when the buddy-cop camaraderie takes center stage. It’s ironic that, in openly acknowledging the stigma of sequels, “22 Jump Street” manages to be just as funny as its predecessor. Letting the audience in on the joke goes a long way, while simply being funny allows them to forgive a virtually identical premise. It also doesn’t hurt that the dynamic between its two leads makes for one of the most entertaining comedic duos in recent memory. The formula hasn’t disappointed yet; the original almost made up its production budget in the first weekend, and “22 Jump Street” earned $57 million domestically to upend its own $50 million budget.

Clint Eastwood looks to bounce back with music biopic

‘22 Jump Street’ opened to critical acclaim, grossing $57 million in its opening weekend.

“Jersey Boys” is set to open this weekend, with director Clint Eastwood attempting to win audiences back over after the disappointing “J. Edgar” and “Hereafter.” Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, “Jersey Boys” chronicles the story of Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Nick Massi, and Tommy DeVito, who came together to form the 1960s rock band The Four Seasons. The formation, success, and eventual break-up of the band are all key points that the film is sure to cover.

Eastwood has been known to shade his characters in a morally ambiguous light, although, given The Four Seasons’ involvement in the production of both the musical and this movie, I’m worried that that element may be taken away. The story of this band – not so much the stage production itself – would lend itself heavily to Eastwood’s storytelling style. For instance, this subject matter would grant him the opportunity to explore some of the more controversial incidents of that decade, as well as some of the bands that were competing against The Four Seasons. Additionally, a more in-

depth look at the members’ connections to the mafia would be welcome. Given the likelihood of this being more or less faithful to the musical, however, this is looking to be a missed opportunity. If nothing else, at least, the soundtrack will likely be engrained in my head throughout the rest of that weekend. Plus, Eastwood’s films are always solid on a technical level, with cinematographer Tom Stern reteaming with him. If “Jersey Boys” can add an extra layer of complexity to the actual events, though, that will be a pleasant surprise. news@ocolly.com

The Daily O’Collegian

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Twenty to twenty-five percent of college women in America survive rape or attempted rape, a fact verified through numerous studies by reliable sources including the US Department of Justice. This is the cold, hard truth about college today, and the statistics have been very similar for decades now. Why are the numbers not changing? Why are things not getting better? Our generation of college students is proactive in ending society’s problems, but why are there so few fighting to end the issue that is devastating the lives of millions among us and their loved ones? The answer is that because at most colleges, including Oklahoma State University, most students never learn how they can effectively tackle the problem of sexual violence. Even worse, many students are not made aware of the extent to which rape is a problem amongst college students. I am the President of the 1 in 4 Men’s Chapter, a sexual violence prevention group that teaches students how they can end rape and help survivors via powerful

hour-long presentations. Our program was created by leading researchers on sexual violence prevention who concluded that an educational approach is the most effective way to prevent sexual violence. Given how often rape happens in social gatherings and college parties, all students should be taught to identify risky situations and intervene effectively. Since roughly one in four college women and 3% of college men are rape/sexual assault survivors, students need to learn what to do if they are approached by their friends or loved ones who have survived sexual violence. Finally, students need to learn to promote a culture where sexist attitudes, violence and victimblaming is not tolerated. The program effectively communicates the realities of rape without sugarcoating the facts, and teaches the above skills in manner that creates lasting change in s! tudents. Not surprisingly, research shows the program reduces number of committed sexual assaults on college campuses by almost 40 percent and the severity of committed sexual assaults by a factor

of eight. Despite the preponderance of research pointing toward education as essential in the fight against sexual violence, OSU does not currently have a mandatory program that educates students on the proper ways to deal with the issue. The number of forcible sexual offenses reported by OSU Police Department has gone up from six to nine in the most recent annual report, and based on the national statistic that only five percent of rapes and sexual assaults are actually reported, the problem is likely much bigger than it seems. Rape is a problem at OSU and it is our University’s responsibility to respond to it in a way supported by scholarly research on sexual violence prevention and education. Instead, OSU has either neglected to view the findings of such research or stubbornly refused to adapt an effective prevention/education strategy after seeing the research. OSU currently has a non-mandatory online program available that does not incorporate essential

components of an effective sexual violence prevention program, including components that require in-person interaction. Settling with this program as the solution is unacceptable, especially considering we have had a good example of an effective program advised by qualified faculty members on our campus for the last four years in the student group 1 in 4. In discussions with certain university officials over the last 12 months, my questions regarding implementing a potential mandatory program for incoming students were either deflected or responded to with poor justifications as to why such a program cannot be executed effectively at OSU. Realizing that the initiative to have such a mandatory institutionalized program at our school has to start within the student body, I got together with student leaders and drafted a Student Government Association bill that would require all incoming students at OSU to attend a comprehensive, educational, sexual assault prevention program at Incoming

By alyssa gregory Staff Reporter

1. What is “Chicken Wings of Hope”? “Chicken Wings of Hope” is a free event that will be held on Saturday, at Couch Park from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. We have partnered with Suddenlink, Eskimo Joe’s and the Red Cross to provide a family friendly event for our community members. There will be live music all day and children’s games and activities. Joe and Buffy will make an appearance during the event and the funds raised will benefit the Wings of Hope Family Crisis Services. 2. How did you guys come up with the idea of Chicken Wings of Hope? The idea of having an event called the “Chicken Wings of Hope” came from a Cushing Middle School student. He was inspired by our Prevention Specialist/Advocate who works at several schools in Payne County and the surrounding counties. She teaches the students ways to build healthy relationships. 3. How is this event raising money? Food and drinks will be on sale, as well as Wings of Hope tee shirts and souvenirs. There will also be a chicken wing cook off. People interested in entering their wings can do so by paying an entry fee of $50. Applications can be found on our website, www.

wingsofhopeok.com, or on our Facebook page. Cooks may prepare the wings at home or at the park. The wings must be ready by 11 a.m. Judges will sample the wings from 11am to 1:30 p.m. The winner will be announced at 2 p.m. John Bartley, our mayor, will be one of the judges. 4. What are you most looking forward to? We are looking forward to hearing music by The Bailey Gilbert Band. Bailey is a young lady who recently graduated from Stillwater High School. She has great musical talent

and has been a supporter of our agency for several years. We are also looking forward to hearing the band, “Inspired.” Their music is a mixture of gospel, jazz and funk. In addition, DJ Scot will play the latest hits and keep things lively during breaks.

a nine-month academic year. Creating an effective program to significantly reduce this number will cost our University its resources, but the expenses are well justified to stop hundreds of women and many men from facing sexual violence at OSU and to help those that do. In the meantime, students who are interested in helping can always work with our group, One is too many: OSU Alliance, to bring forth these changes. Additionally, students can send a letter/email to the administration stating their support for the changes recommended by SGA, or can join a group like 1 in 4 (there are Men’s and Women’s chapters) and directly educate other students about ending sexual violence.

Postal Plaza hosts new exhibits By alyssa gregory Staff Reporter

Nature enthusiasts, art adorers, and historians alike will walk away inspired from the Postal Plaza Museum’s summer exhibitions opening Wednesday featuring local artists Belinda Chlouber and Althea Wright. The artwork encompasses everything from paintings of woods to paintings done directly on wood. The summer exhibit showcases two noticeably different artists who both express themselves through two, also noticeably different, forms of art. Experienced art exhibitionist and serious artist since sophomore year in high school, Belinda Chlouber has been working on “Words and Paint: A Collaboration with Family Writings” for three years. “My mixed media paintings are inspired by my family’s poetry and writings and reflect my long time interest in researching the senses and communication,” Chlouber said. “Through script, thread, and paint, I strive to reweave the past and demonstrate its current, otherwise unseen persistence in the present. By collaborating with, and truly, deeply understanding the past, we

influence and guide our future, both intentionally and unconsciously. This unseen, but ubiquitous collaboration inspires me the most as an artist.” For Althea Wright, member of Stillwater Art Guild, this is her first foray into large formal exhibiting. “I didn’t start painting until I was 61 because of other responsibilities,” Wright said. “My family and job at OSU took most of my time. However, I had always enjoyed creative activities such as sewing, crafts, and interior decoration.” Unlike Chlouber exhibit, Wright’s, “Watercolor Paintings,” doesn’t follow a specific theme. “Most of my art is inspired by the beauty of nature,” Wright said. “I paint mostly from photographs and my painting centers around Christmas. When I first started painting, I created pictures with Christmas themes in order to have a card made from them to send to family and friends.” With 18 pieces of art in her themed exhibit, Chlouber’s favorite is “Whirlpool Stilled.” “It was inspired by one of my mother’s poems ‘Whirlpool Stilled,’” Chlouber said. “To me it is calming but still communicates the busyness and complicated-

ness of life and how we can master living in a complex complicated world.” In this intricate world, Wright believes picking a favorite piece of artwork is better left to others. “I really don’t have a favorite painting,” Wright said. “I enjoy hearing the comments of others about which paintings they like and why they do.” Knowing when a piece of art is finished is more a personal decision than collaboration. “The artwork feels finished when it is completely divorced from me, like it has its own life,” Chlouber said. The exhibits will run through the summer and admission is free. Postal Plaza is open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m.-6 p.m., and open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.

As Ehlers stated, Career Services helps students from admission to position. “As students come into the OSU community, we are here to help with student employment either oncampus or off-campus. “We have a full-time job developer here in the Stillwater community that helps us to find and post student employment positions so that students will be working while they are going to school,” Ehlers said. Career Services recommend that students work

while they are going through school to stay focused. If students are taking a normal load of classes, the office suggests about 15 to 20 hours per week. Dr. Lee Bird, the vice president for Student Affairs, and Ehlers surveyed their employers and found out that one of the things they most look for is student employment. Ehlers’ favorite thing about working with Career Services are the students. Her life is working with students. She explains the Career Services office as the happy office on campus because students usually come to us

The Daily O’Collegian was recently named the best college newspaper in the state. The Oklahoma Press Association presented its Better Newspaper Contest Awards during the OPA Annual Convention, June 12-14, 2014, at the Reed Center in Midwest City. The O’Colly won first place in nine of 12 categories, including advertising, sales promotion, in-depth enterprise, editorial comment, news writing, feature writing, sports coverage, photography and community leadership. This is the third year in a row that the O’Colly has won the prestigious Sequoyah Award for best newspaper in its circulation category. “We consider ourselves to be a learning lab for journalism students,” said O’Colly adviser Barbara Allen. “So to win this kind

of huge honor validates what we’re doing in a big way.” OSU now-graduates Sally Asher and Brandon Wilken were the editors-in-chief during the content years, which spanned the calendar year of 2013. Other editors include Kyle Hinchey, Christian Favalora, Bryan Urbach, Maddy Cunningham, Jackie Dobson, KT King, Emily Farris and Murphy Mitchell.
