The Â Committee Â for Â Senior Â Week Â currently Â does Â not Â have Â any Â seniors Â on Â it, Â putting Â a Â damper Â on Â activity Â planning, Â so Â therefore Â se-Â nior Â week Â may Â not Â be Â the Â same Â as Â past Â years. Senior Â celebrations, Â or Â senior Â
week Â as Â it Â is Â more Â commonly Â referred Â to, Â is Â a Â week Â comprised Â of Â events Â between Â the Â last Â day Â of Â ÂżQDOVDQGGD\RIJUDGXDWLRQ7KH events Â are Â meant Â to Â bring Â the Â se-Â nior Â class Â together Â to Â spend Â time Â RQDQGRIIFDPSXVVHUYLQJDVDÂż-Â nal Â get-Âtogether Â before Â the Â seniors Â graduate Â and Â go Â off Â separate Â ways Â into Â the Â world. â€œUsually Â the Â committee Â that Â sets Â up Â the Â events Â for Â the Â senior Â
celebration Â is Â made Â up Â of Â juniors Â and Â seniors. Â This Â year Â I Â emailed Â all Â the Â seniors Â and Â received Â only Â one Â response,â€? Â Assistant Â Direc-Â tor Â of Â Student Â Development Â and Â Campus Â Activities Â Niki Â Fjeldal Â said. Â â€œWithout Â a Â committee Â com-Â prised Â of Â seniors Â the Â events Â for Â the Â celebrations Â may Â not Â be Â what Â the Â seniors Â want Â and Â could Â be Â very Â limited.â€? Some Â events Â may Â be Â planned, Â
but Â without Â the Â input Â of Â the Â se-Â niors Â it Â is Â hard Â to Â determine Â what Â the Â events Â will Â be. Â When Â seniors Â are Â not Â giving Â input Â on Â the Â events Â that Â will Â be Â planned, Â it Â is Â possible Â that Â what Â is Â planned Â will Â not Â be Â liked Â by Â the Â senior Â class, Â and Â the Â CONTINUED Â ON Â PAGE Â 4 Â

Pace Plans Formal Ball to Celebrate 50th Anniversary TAMARA Â BONET Â FEATURE Â EDITOR TAMARA.D.BONET@PACE.EDU
In Â honor Â of Â the Â 50th Â anniver-Â sary Â of Â the Â Pleasantville Â campus, Â Pace Â will Â be Â holding Â a Â grand Â â€œSnow Â Ballâ€?, Â a Â formal Â celebra-Â tion Â for Â all Â students Â to Â be Â held Â on Â Feb. Â 7, Â 2014. Â Normally, Â Paceâ€™s Â parties Â usu-Â ally Â consist Â of Â a Â DJ Â blasting Â loud Â hip Â hop, Â pop Â and Â reggae Â music Â
N Â THIS Â Â
while Â people Â dance, Â sweat Â and Â party Â to Â the Â fullest. Â This Â has Â been Â the Â norm Â for Â as Â long Â as Â anyone Â can Â remember, Â but Â in Â honor Â of Â the Â milestone Â anniversary Â cel-Â ebration, Â Pace Â thought Â it Â would Â EH ÂżWWLQJ WR KDYH D FOHDQHU ORRN and Â a Â formal Â event. Â . Â Â â€œWe Â wanted Â to Â do Â something Â a Â little Â different Â with Â keeping Â the Â celebration Â going,â€? Â Assistant Â Director Â for Â Student Â Develop-Â ment Â and Â Campus Â Activities, Â Niki Â Fjeldal Â said. Â â€œWe Â looked Â
through Â older Â yearbooks Â and Â saw Â that Â there Â was Â a Â â€˜Snow Â Ballâ€™ Â and Â thought Â that Â we Â could Â try Â to Â bring Â that Â idea Â back.â€? Â Fjeldal Â and Â other Â organizers Â for Â the Â Snow Â Ball Â hope Â students Â take Â advantage Â of Â this Â event Â so Â that Â they Â may Â show Â themselves Â in Â a Â different Â light Â and Â enjoy Â themselves Â more Â elegantly. Â â€œThere Â will Â be Â a Â more Â formal Â dress Â code,â€? Â Fjeldal Â said. Â â€œThink Â like Â a Â banquet Â or Â gala, Â not Â a Â Will-Â cox Â Party.
Â The Â question Â remains Â wheth-Â er Â or Â not Â students Â will Â be Â as Â in-Â terested Â in Â attending Â a Â formal Â gathering Â as Â they Â would Â a Â normal Â party. Â Â â€œItâ€™s Â nice Â to Â see Â people Â clean Â up Â and Â look Â nice,â€? Â freshman Â edu-Â cation Â major Â Natalie Â Abreu Â said.

Midterms Result in Student Stress

If Â someone Â has Â ever Â felt Â their Â temporal Â lobes Â pulsating Â nonstop Â while Â studying Â a Â textbook, Â that Â will Â mean Â nothing Â to Â them Â in Â the Â next Â month Â and Â a Â half, Â then Â they Â have Â experienced Â something Â called Â midterm-Âstress. Â â€œMidterms Â are Â a Â big Â part Â of Â your Â grade Â and Â considering Â theyâ€™re Â cumulative Â there Â can Â be Â a Â slim Â chance Â of Â passing,â€? Â fresh-Â
PDQÂżQDQFHPDMRU0LWFKHOO)DU-Â rell Â said. The Â body Â owns Â certain Â stress-Â ors Â that Â are Â stimulated Â and Â cause Â people Â to Â act Â and Â think Â in Â certain Â ways. Â Midterms Â can Â almost Â be Â re-Â lated Â to Â several Â different Â stressors Â such Â as: Â chronic, Â life Â changing, Â job Â and/or Â frustrating Â stressors. Â Âł7KH ZRUGV PLGWHUP DQG Âż-Â nal, Â are Â associated Â with Â fear,â€? Â Farrell Â said. According Â to Â Ashland Â Torres, Â writer Â for Â The Â Current Â Online, Â â€œwith Â half Â of Â the Â semester Â nearly Â
over, Â midterms Â are Â the Â looming Â darkness Â over Â every Â students Â head.â€? Although Â students Â may Â pre-Â pare Â for Â the Â looming Â darkness Â of Â midterms, Â even Â the Â prepared Â stu-Â dent Â experiences Â the Â worries Â and Â stress Â when Â faced Â with Â the Â pres-Â sure Â that Â comes Â along Â with Â mid-Â terms. Â If Â pondered Â on, Â the Â idea Â of Â being Â well Â prepared Â isnâ€™t Â that Â easy Â to Â come Â by Â for Â college Â stu-Â dents. Â Most Â college Â students Â not Â only Â have Â to Â worry Â about Â mid-Â terms, Â but Â also Â worry Â about Â oth-Â
er Â factors Â such Â as: Â their Â futures, Â their Â money, Â maintaining Â certain Â GPAs, Â holding Â onto Â a Â part-Âtime Â job, Â etc. Â According Â to Â US Â News, Â 20 Â percent Â of Â students Â report Â anxi-Â ety Â so Â stressful Â that Â it Â affects Â their Â grades Â on Â the Â actual Â test. Â With Â this Â many Â tasks Â it Â also Â easy Â for Â students Â to Â forget Â important Â things, Â simply Â because Â their Â minds Â are Â off Â somewhere Â else. Â Due Â to Â distractions, Â students Â may Â DOVR ÂżQG WKHPVHOYHV UHDOL]LQJ DW the Â last Â minute Â they Â must Â take Â a Â
midterm, Â causing Â an Â alarming Â re-Â action. As Â the Â body Â reacts Â to Â alarm-Â ing Â news, Â the Â heart Â has Â a Â reac-Â tion. Â The Â sudden Â stop Â of Â heart Â is Â the Â bodyâ€™s Â GAS Â (generalized Â adaptation Â syndrome) Â system Â be-Â ing Â activated. Â The Â way Â this Â sys-Â tem Â works Â is Â that Â generally Â when Â someone Â is Â initially Â told Â some-Â thing Â alarming Â they Â experience Â 3 Â phases;Íž Â they Â are: Â the Â alarm, Â resistance Â and Â exhaustion Â stages. Â For Â example, Â when Â a Â student Â sud-Â denly Â remembers Â a Â big Â test Â he/she Â is Â startled Â triggering Â their Â stress-Â ors. Â The Â second Â stage, Â resistance, Â is Â when Â the Â student Â will Â shake Â it Â off Â and Â say Â that Â they Â have Â enough Â time Â to Â cram Â the Â night Â before. Â 7KHQ WKH ÂżQDO VWDJH H[KDXVWLRQ is Â when Â the Â body Â literally Â gives Â up, Â they Â call Â it Â quits Â because Â the Â body Â can Â no Â longer Â take Â what Â is Â being Â thrown Â at Â it. Â The Â informa-Â tion Â being Â read Â is Â not Â being Â syn-Â thesized Â and Â people Â will Â go Â to Â sleep Â because Â they Â are Â literally Â exhausted. Â Stress Â is Â literally Â a Â bodily Â re-Â minder. Â Some Â ways Â to Â deal Â with Â midterm Â stress Â are Â simple Â such Â as: Â getting Â good Â sleep, Â exercise Â so Â the Â body Â remains Â in Â tip-Âtop Â shape, Â study Â a Â week Â or Â two Â ahead, Â etc. Â The Â next Â time Â the Â syllabus Â reads Â midterm Â make Â sure Â to Â plan Â ahead Â because Â with Â that Â single Â step Â they Â are Â avoiding Â stressing Â themselves Â out.

Â With Â the Â new Â law Â limiting Â the Â purchase Â of Â cigarettes, Â students Â have Â many Â points Â of Â view Â and Â responses.

Â The Â idea Â that Â lawmakers Â had Â for Â the Â bills Â was Â that Â it Â is Â important Â to Â incorporate Â the Â health Â and Â developmental Â as-Â pects Â of Â the Â young Â adults Â that Â do Â smoke. â€œI Â donâ€™t Â smoke Â anymore, Â but Â I Â understand Â it.

Alice Altshuler is one of the many students at Pace who is able to enjoy the college experience through the Successful Learning Center (SLC). SLC, according to its website, is a program that enables students with disabilities to meet and interact with other college students and become ex- posed to the collegiate environment. On Wednesdays, students in SLC come to Pace and spend time with other students through the Lunch Buddies program. It was through this program that the Chronicle’s Editor in Chief, Jonathan Alvarez, met Alice and learned of her future aspirations of becoming a journalist. When Jonathan promised to pub- lish her writing in The Pace Chronicle, she immediately began typing away at a nearby computer and assured him she would have her article submitted the next day. Alice kept her word, and the fol- lowing column gives in-depth ac- counts of her days at Pace.

Trash in residence halls-- Do all students respect common space?
Â PHOTO Â FROM Â PACE.EDU Residence Â halls Â at Â Pace Â look Â clean Â from Â the Â outside, Â and Â generally Â are Â on Â the Â inside Â too. Â But Â students Â do Â have Â to Â remember Â to Â care Â for Â their Â home Â away Â from Â home Â and Â get Â rid Â of Â their Â trash Â responsibly. SARA Â MORIARTY Â OPINION Â EDITOR SARA.M.MORIARTY@PACE.EDU
Walking Â into Â the Â hallway Â of Â Dow Â Hall Â in Â Briarcliff Â on Â a Â lazy Â Saturday Â afternoon, Â one Â might Â see Â the Â remnants Â of Â a Â fun Â Friday Â QLJKWVWUHZQDURXQGWKHĂ€RRU3L]-Â za Â boxes, Â cans, Â napkins, Â and Â even Â bubble Â wrap Â might Â appear Â in Â the Â hallway. Â Bubble Â wrap Â doesnâ€™t Â appear Â to Â be Â much Â of Â problem, Â but Â leaving Â trash Â in Â the Â halls Â can Â attract Â bugs. Â Bugs Â and Â trash Â do Â not Â make Â for Â happy Â residents. Â Sure, Â the Â halls Â are Â cleared Â and Â cleaned Â quickly Â enough, Â but Â the Â garbage Â shouldnâ€™t Â have Â to Â be Â cleared Â out Â of Â the Â halls Â to Â begin Â with. Â Most Â students Â respect Â their Â residence, Â but Â problems Â remain. Â Remnants Â of Â Friday Â night Â parties Â or Â even Â Sunday Â night Â study Â ses-Â sions Â really Â should Â not Â be Â visible Â in Â the Â hallway Â or Â in Â any Â shared Â space. Â Sophomore Â Resident Â Assis-Â tant Â Patrick Â Dooley Â spoke Â to Â me Â about Â respecting Â shared Â space Â in Â dorm Â halls. Â He Â is Â a Â RA Â in Â North Â Hall. Â â€œWell Â to Â my Â residents Â I Â tell Â them Â to Â be Â more Â aware Â of Â their Â
surroundings. Â Their Â section Â is Â a Â community Â and Â other Â people Â have Â to Â deal Â with Â what Â they Â do. Â I Â wouldnâ€™t Â say Â there Â is Â an Â issue Â in Â North Â though,â€? Â Dooley Â said, Â re-Â ferring Â to Â issues Â of Â improper Â dis-Â posal Â of Â trash. Â Several Â residence Â halls Â alleg-Â edly Â have Â some Â variation Â of Â the Â problem Â of Â improper Â garbage Â disposal Â and Â lack Â of Â respect Â for Â shared Â space. Â I Â spoke Â to Â some Â students Â about Â any Â cleanliness Â problems Â in Â their Â residence, Â and Â the Â majority Â of Â answers Â involved Â bathrooms. Â One Â answer Â that Â con-Â tinually Â came Â up Â was Â garbage Â disposal Â of Â students. Â According Â to Â students Â in Â residence Â halls Â on Â both Â Pleasantville Â and Â Briarcliff, Â residents Â will Â dispose Â of Â their Â trash Â in Â bathroom Â garbage Â cans Â instead Â of Â the Â large Â garbage Â bins Â they Â are Â supposed Â to Â use. Â â€œHillside Â is Â generally Â clean. Â The Â only Â thing Â is Â people Â throw Â things Â out Â in Â the Â bathroom Â trash,â€? Â Hillside Â resident Â and Â sophomore Â education Â major Â Jack Â Quinn. Â Another Â alleged Â problem Â ac-Â cording Â to Â some Â on Â Briarcliff Â have Â been Â cockroaches, Â but Â that Â is Â another Â issue Â entirely. Â It Â is Â com-Â mon Â knowledge, Â however, Â that Â keeping Â trash Â in Â its Â proper Â place Â
can Â prevent Â bug Â infestations. Â It Â apparently Â isnâ€™t Â all Â dorm Â KDOOVWKDWIDFHWKLVWUDVKGLIÂżFXOW\ however. Â Â Howard Â Johnson Â resi-Â dents Â donâ€™t Â claim Â to Â be Â facing Â any Â problems Â with Â students Â respect-Â ing Â shared Â space. Â More Â complaints Â donâ€™t Â stem Â from Â trash, Â but Â from Â smells. Â Some Â students Â complain Â of Â strong Â smells Â allegedly Â coming Â from Â particular Â rooms. Â Pat Â Dooley Â also Â spoke Â to Â me Â about Â this Â issue. Â â€œIn Â my Â section Â personally Â we Â have Â a Â B.O. Â problem, Â but Â a Â major-Â ity Â of Â my Â residents Â are Â athletes Â or Â go Â to Â the Â gym Â on Â a Â regular Â basis Â so Â thatâ€™s Â something Â Iâ€™ve Â talked Â to Â them Â about. Â The Â North Â Hall Â girls Â have Â really Â helped Â me Â out Â because Â my Â guys Â realized Â that Â they Â didnâ€™t Â want Â to Â come Â to Â their Â rooms Â if Â it Â smelled Â bad. Â So Â hurrah Â for Â women!â€? Â Dooley Â said. Â So, Â residents, Â whatever Â you Â happen Â to Â be Â doing, Â try Â to Â keep Â it Â contained Â and Â invisible Â for Â the Â sake Â of Â all Â the Â others Â living Â with Â you. Â Â Pat Â Dooley Â agrees. Â â€œEveryone Â should Â respectful Â to Â the Â residents Â of Â their Â commu-Â nity. Â That Â just Â because Â you Â donâ€™t Â care Â that Â your Â room Â reeks Â doesnâ€™t Â mean Â your Â neighbors Â donâ€™t Â ei-Â ther,â€? Â Dooley Â said. Â

Home For the Holidays: A Stressful Season for Students SARA Â MORIARTY Â OPINION Â EDITOR SARA.M.MORIARTY@PACE.EDU
With Â the Â holiday Â season Â upon Â us, Â some Â students Â living Â at Â Pace Â are Â beginning Â to Â mentally Â prepare Â before Â going Â home Â for Â Thanks-Â giving Â and Â winter Â break. Â Â Living Â on Â campus Â gives Â many Â students Â a Â sense Â of Â independence Â that Â they Â do Â not Â have Â at Â home. Â I Â live Â on Â campus Â because Â I Â craved Â this Â independence, Â as Â do Â many Â other Â students. Â Thus, Â going Â back Â to Â your Â parentsâ€™ Â house, Â for Â some, Â is Â a Â source Â of Â stress. Â This Â stress Â can Â be Â partly Â because Â of Â losing Â the Â sense Â of Â college Â independence Â upon Â going Â back Â home. Â Personally, Â I Â donâ€™t Â get Â so Â stressed Â out Â with Â going Â home. Â Itâ€™s Â a Â bit Â annoying Â having Â a Â curfew Â after Â spending Â a Â whole Â semester Â without Â one, Â and Â itâ€™s Â weird Â go-Â ing Â back Â to Â a Â house Â always Â full Â of Â children Â after Â living Â in Â a Â dorm Â full Â of Â young Â adults. Â Still, Â I Â donâ€™t Â mind Â going Â home. Â Other Â students Â have Â differing Â opinions. Â Â â€œI Â love Â going Â home,â€? Â sopho-Â more Â nursing Â major Â Asma Â Vohra Â said. Â â€œWhenever Â Iâ€™m Â on Â campus, Â I Â have Â a Â lot Â of Â work, Â which Â is Â
what Â causes Â stress Â for Â me. Â Being Â at Â home, Â I Â can Â relax Â more Â eas-Â ily Â while Â still Â being Â productive. Â I Â try Â to Â go Â home Â once Â or Â twice Â a Â month, Â but Â this Â semester Â I Â havenâ€™t Â had Â time Â to Â go Â home Â that Â often. Â Â I Â like Â being Â around Â family. Â â€œ Â Other Â students Â are Â not Â looking Â forward Â to Â going Â home Â for Â up-Â coming Â holiday Â breaks. Â â€œThereâ€™s Â nothing Â to Â do Â at Â home. Â Here, Â youâ€™re Â always Â ac-Â tive. Â Thereâ€™s Â always Â homework, Â thereâ€™s Â always Â something Â to Â do,â€? Â sophomore Â communications Â ma-Â jor Â Steve Â Cosentino Â said. Â This Â college Â activity, Â in Â my Â opinion, Â can Â be Â associated Â with Â independence. Â It Â is Â up Â to Â the Â student Â to Â go Â to Â class, Â to Â get Â in-Â volved, Â to Â make Â friends, Â and Â to Â go Â to Â activities Â available Â on Â campus. Â Going Â back Â home, Â the Â activity Â suddenly Â stops Â and Â you Â are, Â in Â some Â cases, Â stuck Â with Â family Â ac-Â tivities Â and Â stuck Â being Â dependent Â on Â parents Â once Â again. Â â€œIâ€™m Â excited Â to Â go Â home Â for Â Thanksgiving Â break, Â thatâ€™s Â only Â a Â few Â days,â€? Â sophomore Â psychol-Â ogy Â major Â Christina Â Miller Â said.

Â Unknown Â to Â many Â inside Â the Â Pace Â communi-Â ty, Â Lou Â Reedâ€™s Â work Â with Â the Â Vel-Â vet Â Underground, Â collaborations, Â and Â solo Â albums Â set Â the Â stage Â for Â generations Â to Â come. Â He Â was Â best Â known Â for Â his Â song Â â€œWalk Â On Â The Â Wild Â Side.â€? â€œIt Â bums Â me Â out Â that Â a Â lot Â of Â people Â in Â our Â generation Â prob-Â ably Â donâ€™t Â know Â his Â name Â or Â who Â KHZDVEXWKLVLQĂ€XHQFHRQURFN and Â roll Â will Â forever Â resonate Â in Â the Â music Â of Â those Â who Â know Â him Â and Â even Â those Â who Â donâ€™t,â€? Â junior Â journalism Â major Â Farrah Â Lopez Â said. Reedâ€™s Â death Â was Â almost Â in-Â evitable Â after Â he Â received Â a Â liver Â
transplant Â last Â May, Â which Â was Â eventually Â the Â cause Â of Â his Â death. Â This Â came Â from Â a Â lifelong Â prob-Â lem Â with Â drinking Â and Â drugs, Â he Â was Â 71 Â when Â he Â passed. Â â€œNormally Â when Â you Â hear Â about Â celebrity Â deaths Â or Â anyone Â substantial Â dying Â you Â kind Â of Â get Â that Â momentary Â passĂŠ Â kind Â of Â shock Â and Â it Â hits Â you Â later, Â but Â I Â was Â immediately Â affected Â even Â for Â someone Â that Â I Â didnâ€™t Â know Â and Â the Â fact Â that Â it Â happened Â out Â of Â nowhere Â made Â it Â even Â more Â GLIÂżFXOW WR FRSH ZLWKÂ´ VHQLRU history Â major Â Andrew Â Linth-Â waite Â said.

Â â€œWhen Â I Â heard Â he Â had Â passed Â away, Â I Â thought Â of Â every Â person Â I Â listen Â to Â who Â was Â close Â to Â him Â DQGWKHLUVDGQHVVRQO\DPSOLÂżHG

Â My Â Two Â Cents: Â It Â wasnâ€™t Â until Â I Â got Â to Â Pace Â that Â I Â started Â listening Â to Â Reed. Â At Â the Â time Â I Â had Â been Â going Â through Â a Â lot Â of Â issues Â in Â my Â life Â
and Â it Â was Â Reedâ€™s Â musical Â genius Â that Â helped Â me Â sort Â it Â out. Â Even Â as Â a Â child Â driving Â around Â in Â my Â momâ€™s Â car Â listening Â to Â his Â song Â â€œWalk Â On Â The Â Wild Â Side,â€? Â I Â didnâ€™t Â know Â what Â he Â was Â neces-Â sarily Â talking Â about, Â but Â I Â knew Â it Â was Â terribly Â catchy Â and Â it Â perma-Â nently Â ingrained Â into Â my Â mind. 7KLVLVWKHÂżUVWWLPHLQP\OLIH that Â Iâ€™ve Â found Â myself Â mourn-Â ing Â the Â death Â of Â someone Â who Â left Â such Â an Â outstanding Â impact Â on Â the Â rock Â and Â roll Â community.

Artist Spotlight: Joanna DeRosa and Six Stories Told DEREK Â KADEMIAN Â ENTERTAINMENT Â EDITOR DEREK.H.KADEMIAN@PACE.EDU
Junior Â Joanna Â DeRosa Â has Â been Â quite Â busy Â this Â past Â year Â be-Â tween Â being Â a Â full Â time Â commu-Â nications Â student, Â professional Â cheerleading, Â and Â now Â sheâ€™s Â the Â front Â woman Â for Â the Â band Â Six Â Stories Â Told. Â Six Â Stories Â Told Â is Â a Â power Â pop Â band Â based Â out Â of Â Walden, Â New Â York, Â who Â in Â the Â past Â year Â has Â had Â an Â incredible Â amount Â of Â success Â opening Â for Â bands Â like Â The Â Naked Â Brothers Â Band, Â Red Â Jumpsuit Â Apparatus, Â and Â the Â re-Â cently Â revived Â Aaron Â Carter. Â DeRosa Â grew Â up Â in Â a Â musical Â household Â with Â her Â mother Â being Â in Â a Â rock Â band, Â where Â her Â and Â her Â husband Â would Â eventually Â meet. Â Her Â sister Â Samantha, Â who Â at-Â tended Â Pace Â for Â two Â years, Â is Â also Â an Â accomplished Â songwriter Â and Â now Â attends Â the Â Berkeley Â Col-Â lege Â of Â Music Â in Â Boston, Â Mas-Â sachusetts. Â Her Â mother Â was Â also Â Joannaâ€™s Â long-Âtime Â vocal Â coach Â and Â created Â a Â â€˜family Â bandâ€™ Â con-Â sisting Â of Â her Â sister Â and Â herself. Â â€œIâ€™ve Â been Â competing Â in Â sing-Â ing Â competitions Â since Â I Â was Â six Â and Â Iâ€™ve Â won Â some Â national Â com-Â petitions Â also,â€? Â DeRosa Â said. Â Besides Â having Â the Â oppor-Â tunity Â to Â open Â for Â such Â notable Â names, Â the Â band Â has Â also Â played Â dozens Â of Â other Â shows Â through-Â
out Â the Â tri-Âstate Â area Â at Â well Â known Â venues Â like Â Webster Â Hall, Â The Â Chance, Â and Â The Â Revolu-Â tion. Â â€œWe Â sometimes Â play Â up Â to Â four Â shows Â a Â week Â and Â at Â least Â one Â a Â day, Â I Â think Â weâ€™ve Â played Â around Â 50 Â shows. Â I Â lost Â track Â af-Â ter Â about Â 30,â€? Â DeRosa Â said. Â Outside Â of Â her Â hectic Â sched-Â ule Â with Â the Â band, Â DeRosa Â also Â dances Â for Â the Â Gotham Â City Â &KHHUOHDGHUVWKHÂżUVWSURGDQFH team Â to Â cheer Â on Â behalf Â of Â the Â New Â York Â Giants. Â â€œIâ€™m Â taking Â 17 Â credits Â right Â now, Â balancing Â rehearsal Â twice Â a Â week Â with Â the Â team, Â band Â prac-Â tice Â once Â a Â week, Â playing Â shows Â and Â Iâ€™m Â trying Â to Â maintain Â a Â so-Â cial Â life, Â but Â itâ€™s Â tough, Â I Â feel Â like Â a Â ghost Â sometimes, Â but Â the Â way Â I Â see Â it Â is Â that Â I Â donâ€™t Â want Â to Â have Â any Â wasted Â days, Â I Â want Â every-Â day Â to Â get Â me Â one Â step Â closer Â to Â my Â ultimate Â goals,â€? Â DeRosa Â said.

â€œRemember Â to Â love Â your Â par-Â ents...We Â are Â so Â busy Â growing Â up, Â we Â often Â forget Â they Â are Â also Â growing Â old.â€? This Â idea Â resonates Â in Â Amy Â Herzogâ€™s Â play Â 4000 Â Miles Â which Â being Â performed Â by Â the Â Hudson Â Stage Â Company Â at Â the Â Woodward Â Hall Â Theater Â on Â Paceâ€™s Â Briarcliff Â campus Â this Â month.
Led Â by Â director Â Dan Â Fos-Â ter, Â 4000 Â Miles Â tells Â the Â story Â of Â young Â adult Â Leo Â (Jacob Â Perkins) Â who Â leaves Â his Â home Â in Â St. Â Paul Â to Â live Â with Â his Â hearing-Âimpaired Â grandmother Â (Alice Â Cannon) Â in Â her Â West Â Village Â apartment. Â Following Â the Â traumatic Â loss Â of Â his Â best Â friend, Â Leo Â struggles Â to Â discover Â himself Â and Â atone Â for Â his Â past Â wrongdoings. Â Meanwhile, Â his Â grandmother Â Vera Â copes Â with Â her Â own Â fear Â of Â losing Â her Â grand-Â son, Â as Â he Â grows Â less Â dependent Â on Â her. Â Both Â stories Â show Â the Â tri-Â als Â and Â tribulations Â of Â life Â and Â its Â stages Â with Â frequent Â comedic Â re-Â lief Â from Â Cannon. Â

Â But Â her Â importance Â is Â more Â than Â meets Â the Â eye. Â While Â the Â play Â seems Â to Â cen-Â ter Â on Â Leo, Â with Â the Â only Â other Â visible Â characters Â serving Â as Â his Â romantic Â interests, Â Cannon Â steals Â the Â show Â through Â her Â portrayal Â of Â Vera, Â easily Â becoming Â the Â most Â sympathetic Â character Â in Â the Â play.

The Â archetypes Â displayed Â in Â the Â play Â are Â highly Â tangible. Â Leoâ€™s Â long-Âtime Â girlfriend Â Becca Â is Â the Â characteristic Â headstrong, Â intel-Â ligent Â go-Âgetter. Â The Â unraveling Â of Â their Â relationship Â as Â she Â moves Â forward Â with Â her Â education Â and Â he Â remains Â stuck Â in Â his Â depres-Â sion Â and Â lack Â of Â ambition, Â is Â re-Â latable Â to Â many Â college Â students. 4000 Â Miles Â is Â a Â story Â for Â adults Â of Â all Â ages, Â though Â some Â of Â the Â script Â content Â can Â be Â very Â crude Â and Â suggestive.

Pace Â Athletics Â has Â made Â many Â new Â additions Â and Â changes Â to Â var-Â ious Â athletics Â programs Â over Â the Â past Â year. Â Â Among Â these Â changes, Â the Â athletics Â department Â has Â hired Â a Â new Â coach Â for Â the Â menâ€™s Â and Â womenâ€™s Â diving;Íž Â Logan Â Pearsall. With Â notable Â hires Â like Â Tom Â Mariano, Â the Â new Â lacrosse Â coach, Â and Â Pat Â Kennedy, Â the Â new Â bas-Â ketball Â coach, Â along Â with Â the Â an-Â nouncement Â of Â the Â additions Â of Â two Â new Â womenâ€™s Â sports Â teams Â ODFURVVH DQG ÂżHOG KRFNH\ /R-Â gan Â Pearsall Â comes Â in Â eager Â to Â help Â continue Â to Â build Â up Â the Â Pace Â diving Â team. â€œI Â think Â that Â the Â program Â here Â at Â Pace Â has Â a Â very Â strong Â founda-Â tion Â that Â can Â we Â build Â upon,â€? Â said Â Pearsall, Â a Â graduate Â of Â Clarion Â University, Â where Â he Â majored Â in Â Liberal Â Studies Â with Â a Â concentra-Â tion Â in Â athletic Â coaching. Â â€œFrom Â here Â we Â can Â only Â look Â to Â make Â it Â stronger, Â and Â we Â do Â that Â by Â put-Â ting Â the Â Pace Â name Â out Â there, Â us-Â ing Â our Â resources Â and Â contacts Â to Â show Â how Â good Â this Â school Â can Â be. Â We Â want Â to Â get Â to Â the Â point Â where Â we Â can Â be Â recognized Â on Â the Â Conference Â level Â and Â on Â the Â National Â level.â€? Coming Â from Â a Â Division Â II Â school, Â where Â he Â was Â named Â the Â NCAA Â Diver Â of Â the Â Year Â two Â years Â in Â a Â row Â (2010-Â2011), Â Pearsall Â comes Â to Â familiar Â terri-Â tory Â with Â Pace. Â â€œOne Â of Â the Â reasons Â I Â chose Â Pace Â was Â because Â itâ€™s Â a Â Division Â II Â school,â€? Â said Â Pearsall, Â who Â was Â previously Â the Â head Â coach Â at Â Wheaton Â College, Â a Â Division Â III Â school. Â â€œIn Â Division Â I Â schools Â you Â see Â that Â they Â are Â very Â competi-Â tive, Â but Â the Â focus Â is Â put Â more Â on Â athletics Â and Â not Â so Â much Â on Â the Â academics.â€? Â â€œDivision Â III Â schools Â on Â the Â other Â hand Â are Â not Â as Â competi-Â tive. Â I Â think Â that Â with Â Division Â II Â
schools Â you Â strike Â the Â perfect Â bal-Â ance Â because Â they Â are Â competi-Â tive, Â but Â academics Â are Â also Â very Â important,â€? Â Pearsall Â said. Â â€œI Â think Â that Â this Â is Â important Â because Â itâ€™s Â a Â great Â way Â to Â showcase Â complete Â student Â athletes.â€? Pearsall Â feels Â an Â importance Â in Â bringing Â out Â the Â best Â in Â student Â athletes. â€œI Â enjoy Â coaching Â because Â itâ€™s Â a Â great Â way Â to Â interact Â with Â people, Â and Â it Â allows Â me Â to Â pass Â on Â my Â knowledge Â to Â my Â pupils,â€? Â said Â Pearsall, Â who Â also Â coaches Â the Â age Â group Â powerhouse Â Whirl-Â wind Â Diving, Â a Â kidâ€™s Â diving Â group Â out Â of Â the Â New Â Canaan, Â Connect-Â icut Â YMCA. Â â€œEverything Â I Â have Â learned Â throughout Â my Â career Â and Â life Â I Â am Â able Â to Â contribute Â and Â that Â gives Â me Â a Â great Â sense Â of Â sat-Â isfaction.â€? Pearsall Â has Â plenty Â of Â expe-Â rience, Â considering Â he Â has Â been Â coaching Â since Â he Â was Â a Â freshman Â in Â high Â school. Â He Â started Â off Â as Â an Â assistant Â coach Â in Â high Â school, Â while Â swimming Â has Â been Â some-Â thing Â that Â he Â has Â done Â his Â whole Â life. Â â€œI Â love Â anything Â that Â is Â com-Â petitive, Â but Â the Â thing Â about Â swimming Â is Â that Â itâ€™s Â a Â very Â indi-Â vidual Â sport, Â but Â itâ€™s Â also Â a Â team Â sport,â€? Â said Â Pearsall, Â who Â is Â a Â four Â time Â NCAA Â Division Â II Â champion Â between Â the Â one Â and Â three Â meter Â boards, Â which Â is Â tied Â for Â most Â ever Â in Â NCAA Â Division Â II Â menâ€™s Â diving. Â â€œWeâ€™re Â very Â much Â like Â a Â fam-Â ily. Â I Â still Â have Â teammates Â from Â high Â school Â that Â I Â am Â very Â close Â with, Â and Â we Â all Â see Â each Â other Â whenever Â we Â can, Â and Â we Â have Â gone Â to Â each Â otherâ€™s Â weddings, Â and Â those Â are Â just Â bonds Â that Â last Â a Â lifetime,â€? Â Pearsall Â said. Â Having Â started Â off Â as Â a Â swim-Â mer, Â Pearsall Â made Â the Â transition Â to Â diving Â in Â the Â summer Â of Â his Â junior Â year Â of Â High Â School. Â What Â VWDUWHGRXWDVMXVWJRRÂżQJDURXQG ended Â up Â being Â something Â that Â changed Â Pearsallâ€™s Â life. â€œI Â got Â into Â diving Â in Â high Â

Â Diving Â Coach Â Logan Â Pearsall Â was Â an Â NCAA Â Champion Â during Â his Â athletic Â career Â at Â Clairon.
school, Â but Â it Â was Â really Â when Â I Â got Â to Â college Â that Â it Â took Â off,â€? Â said Â Pearsall, Â who Â was Â named Â the Â Clarion Â University Â of Â Pennsylva-Â nia Â Male Â Athlete Â of Â the Â Year Â in Â 2009. Â â€œEspecially Â when Â I Â got Â to Â Clarion Â University Â because Â when Â I Â was Â at Â the Â University Â of Â Rhode Â Island, Â our Â program Â there Â wasnâ€™t Â the Â greatest Â and Â it Â got Â to Â the Â point Â
where Â I Â felt Â like Â I Â just Â couldnâ€™t Â do Â it Â anymore.â€? â€œMy Â grades Â werenâ€™t Â really Â that Â good, Â and Â I Â thought Â that Â I Â might Â have Â to Â quit, Â but Â I Â felt Â like Â if Â I Â did Â quit, Â I Â would Â not Â only Â quit Â diving Â but Â school Â overall. Â Transferring Â to Â Clarion Â University Â ended Â up Â being Â the Â best Â decision Â for Â me Â be-Â cause Â I Â was Â able Â to Â get Â it Â together Â
again Â and Â really Â re-Âfocus Â on Â my Â studies Â and Â get Â through Â it. Â The Â coaches Â there Â are Â fantastic, Â they Â kept Â encouraging, Â kept Â helping Â me Â to Â work Â hard Â and Â be Â the Â best Â athlete Â I Â could Â be,â€? Â Pearsall Â said. Â The Â next Â meet Â for Â the Â Swim-Â ming Â and Â Diving Â Team Â will Â be Â Nov. Â 10 Â at Â Pace Â against Â Assump-Â tion Â College/Le Â Moyne Â College. Â
