Majors and Degree changes underway at Peace By Ana Teresa Galizes Times Staff Writer
This semester began in an upheaval of confusion over what academic changes had been made to the majors and degree programs here at Peace College. The Peace Times went in search of the correct information, so that every student might know how she is affected by these changes. But first,
one thing must be clarified - the new changes to majors and degrees do not apply to students who already attend Peace. These changes will be implemented next year. However, if a student would like to switch to the 2011/2012 academic catalogue, she is free to do so after discussing the process with her advisor. One of the most significant changes to the new academic cata-
logue is the degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), which includes the majors Theatre and Musical Theatre. The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree will include the majors Biology, Communication, Education, English, Liberal Studies, Political Science and Psychology. The Bachelor of Science (BS) will include the majors Business Administration and Biology.
For the new major in Musical Theatre, a student can choose between two concentrations, Music, Dance and Theatre or Performance, Choreography and Production. The Theater major will have two concentrations, Performance Theatre and Technical Theater. English will have a concentration in literature and writing. In the Communication major, a student will now have the
William Peace School is growing quickly NC State

In 2009, the William Peace School of Professional Studies was started as a co-ed program with 40 adult education students. Today, it has grown to meet the needs of 140 students and is still growing. The program was created to give adults an opportunity to come back at the collegiate level to complete their
bachelor degree. “It’s great to see women who graduated from Peace College with an associate degree come back to finish their bachelor degree,” says Matt Green, Dean of Enrollment. “Three out of four students nowadays are adult students, not even counting on-line campus.” Green went on to say the average age of the students at the William Peace Profession School is 39, and that most of the students travel significant distances to
come to their night classes. He explains the program as being a very quick-paced program. “The material a traditional class learns in seventeen weeks, these students learn in seven,” he says. “Most of the people in the program have twelve hours of class, forty hours of work, and a family. Even with all these factors, the students’ average GPA is 3.35.” “I came back to Peace because I always said I wanted to receive my bachelor degree,” says Liane Watson, Class of ‘80. “I received my associate degree here at Peace, and I really wanted to come back to finish my degree,” says Watson. Watson’s son is enrolled in the night program as well. One student said she came to Peace for this program because of the school’s reputation. “I knew Peace was very strong in their Human Services program,” says Patrice Yon, a Human Services major. “I am just trying to take a good step in being able to get my masters degree.” In late 2010, the name underwent a change from Peace College to William Peace School of Professional Studies. “The name change was something we did to give the night school its own identity. We also wanted to be able to market it to a larger amount of students, and it required its own name so it wouldn’t be confused at the day program,” says Green. “I love seeing men who want to come to the school,” he says. “The William Peace School is keeping its brick
facing cuts By Felicia Hilton Times Staff Writer
Peace College is not the only school facing changes. The College’s neighbor, North Carolina State University, will be losing up to $80 million in state funding beginning the next fiscal year. According to the News and Observer, NC State could see “the elimination of some degree programs, the merger of whole departments, and probably entire schools.” The paper also says NC State students will be further impacted with “larger class sizes, fewer sections, and more difficulty getting classes needed to graduate.” The changes at NC State give some Peace College students perspective on the changes they are facing at their own school. “I think all universities go through adjustments, especially with the budget cuts in times of a recession,” said Peace College senior Sam Stanyon. “Change isn’t the easiest to deal with, but it is inevitable.” Sophomore Sakya King said, “Change can be hard, but can be good.” NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson stated that there will be faculty layoffs, however, there is no word yet on which programs will be affected.

Dr. Lee Carter named new Peace College chaplain By Pamela Austin Times Staff Writer
Peace College started the New Year in good graces, welcoming Dr. Lee Carter as the College’s new chaplain. Carter has been teaching religion courses at Peace for years and welcomes this new challenge. “I am really excited about serving Peace students as chaplain and in leading our chapel services,” Carter said. Many students have expressed their delight about the recent change. “I really enjoyed the first chapel service with Dr. Carter,” said Rachel Frick, a Peace freshman. “It’s nice to also see him throughout the halls during the rest of the week and not just Tuesdays.” Carter received his undergraduate degree in Religion from Furman University in Greeville, SC in 1974.
He met his wife, Pam, at Furman, and they were married a year after graduation. Carter says he is a family man and believes that is his biggest challenge to uphold. “My greatest challenge is being the best husband and father I can possibly be to my wife and two children,” Carter said. “Oh yes, and to be the best grandfather to my daughter’s newborn, Charlie.” Carter is no novice when it comes to teaching at the undergraduate level. He earned his M.Div and Th.M. from Southeastern Seminary and his Ph.D. from UNC-Chapel Hill in American Religious History and Biblical Studies. Since 1982, Carter has been teaching as an adjunct professor - specifically, 17 years at UNC-Chapel Hill. At age 22, he became a pastor, though never giving up his desire to teach religion
to college students. “My passion is teaching courses in Religious Studies and I’d like to do that until the day I die,” he said. Many students, like Frick, feel that Carter’s new position offers many exciting potential outcomes. “I think it will be interesting to have a teacher as a chaplain, because they have experience relating to students on a unique level,” said Peace College junior Hannah Mullis. Carter believes in the growth that comes along with change and he looks forward to starting this year with a posi-
it once had, and it will also have concentrations in experimental, developmental, social/applied and clinical/counseling psychology. The Business Administration major will have concentrations in Human Resources, International Business,
Leadership Studies, Management, and Marketing. The Biology major will now have concentrations in pre-med, pre-dental, pre-veterinary, nursing and allied sciences. The major that has undergone the most changes is Liberal Studies. The Liberal Studies major will offer concentrations and minors in Anthropology, Biology, Communication, English, History, Philosophy, Religion, Political Science, Spanish and additional individualized options. The new curriculum for general education requirements will also have a face-lift. Peace College will start requiring students to take a writing course all four years and these courses will be taught by an English faculty member. There will also be a four-year portfolio program, through which all students will collect examples of their best
tive outlook on his new position. “I feel most at home behind both the lectern and the pulpit, and I certainly understand the difference between the two,” Carter said.

Peace will also begin requiring all students to take a personal finance management course. Finally, as opposed to the current Computer Skills Test, students will be required to take a course in Computer Information Systems to ensure that they are knowledgeable in the latest computer technology skills. The College encourages students who still have questions or concerns to meet with their advisors or make an appointment with Provost Debbie Cottrell.

tion because I am able to hear stories about their struggles and I am able to see them helping each other reach their goals,” says Green. “I heard one story of a woman who lost her husband, and the whole class pulled together to make sure she finished her degree.” William Peace of Professional studies will be graduating its first class in May 2011.

Spotlight on Ethical Leadership: Elaina Bright By Cornelia Anderson Peace Times Staff
“Ethical Leadership” is the theme Peace College has chosen for its Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The purpose of the QEP is to enhance student learning, and it is a necessary part of the College’s reaccreditation. Ethical Leadership will be incorporated into many parts of school life - from classes to on-campus activities. The Peace Times is highlighting various campus leaders to ask them what they think about Ethical Leadership. This month, we are featuring Peace College’s Student Body President Elaina Bright.
What does ethical leadership mean to you? “Ethical leadership is beyond the idea of just a simple ethics and leadership. I don’t think it is just a separate idea. It’s being honest, trustworthy, and honorable while serving your community.” Contributed Photo
Elaina Bright discusses what “ethical leadership” means to her.
How does one become an ethical leader? “It’s something that you take on as a characteristic of yourself. When you begin being honorable, trustworthy, and conducting yourself in the probable manner to achieve goals. You give that title to yourself.”
Social networking: Good tools or a waste of time? By Anna Wingo Times Staff Writer
Twitter and Facebook: Can they be useful? Unlike Facebook, Twitter only allows status updates. A member can say anything from what they are doing to sharing passing thoughts or ideas. In order to share photos, a member must join a site that is affiliated specifically with Twitter. People spend hours on this site, updating their own statuses and following the statuses of celebrities, musicians, and designers. Recently, a common topic on Twitter was about “The Game,” a television show that was cancelled from the CWTV line up two years ago, but was brought back on the BET Network. Tweets, the status updates, were all about the premiere of the show, as well as the audience reaction. Facebook, another social networking site, allows more than just status updating, such as sharing photos, videos, event plans, games, and much more. Facebook was also buzzing about the show’s season premiere. It was clear that the show had a huge audience and that Twitter and
Facebook could prove to be great tools of communication. However, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have become more than a way to pass the time and communicate with friends. Peace College senior Saarah Abdul-
Rauf said, “If we can use it to better ourselves as far as getting things promoted or speaking out about a cause in a positive way, then it can be useful. Its a great marketing tool.” An alternative opinion came from Peace College junior Felicia Hilton. Although she agrees that the social sites can be good for advertising, she stated,
“Twitter has gotten out of control.” Although young adults and teens were once the target audience to connect students to one another, it has become a way to connect old friends and family who may have lost touch. It provides
more ways of communication, because distance is not a barrier with these sites. Senior, Brittnie Rogers responded, “ It’s a new way of allowing companies to reach consumers who would not normally provide feedback in the traditional ways, like surveys and polls.” Although she may not have a twitter personally, she does have experience with
Facebook. Rogers also stated, “Instead of consumers talking one on one, they now have the opportunity to go onto Facebook and in a constructive manner, allow their complaints to be heard in hopes that something may actually be done.” These websites could be seen as one more opportunity to engage in another useless activity, however, they also provide a quick and efficient way to communicate with more people. They also allow companies and organizations an easier way to communicate. There are many companies adapting to recent changes by allowing focus to shift to these popular sites. Overall, it is up to the user to decide whether or not she or he chooses to use these networking sites as an opportunity to not only relax and communicate with friends and family, but also to learn and speak out. It allows the chance for a voice to be heard on issues that have not been heard in the past.

evidence has come to light at this time to prove any theory correct. “Tragic events like this affect everyone and should unite the country, but instead political pundits decided to use this for their own gain,” remarked Peace College junior Angel Armstead. “May the victims rest in peace.” With this tragedy, lawmakers and various groups have already started pressing for tougher gun control laws. However, will that truly end the vio-
lence or the amount of lives lost in the wake of this tragedy? Only time will tell.

Getting to know Peace professor Dr. Teresa Holder By Emily Gleason Times Staff Writer
At a young age, her passion to learn and to teach was evident. Born in Greensboro, NC she and her family moved to Jacksonville, FL due to her father’s job. There, she experienced and began to develop her passions for psychology. Dr. Teresa Holder, a professor at Peace College, developed a love for psychology, but throughout her journey was led to a profession in teaching communications. Holder grew up in a unique way that was unlike most children her age. She was a preacher’s kid. Her father was a minister for a Methodist church in Jacksonville, FL when Holder was 12-years-old through her high school years. Most preachers’ kids would say that being a “PK” is a difficult upbringing, but Holder was different. She enjoyed the experience of growing up in a large congregation, which allowed her to move into the background of
“church social life.” It was within this religious affiliation that Holder discovered her identity and her passions. During her high school years, Holder knew that she wanted to study psychology. She attended Tennessee Temple University for her undergraduate degree. During her undergraduate years, Holder was introduced to the field of communications. She discovered during these undergraduate years that her biggest struggle in life was choosing her love for psychology or her love for teaching in the communication field. “I always knew I wanted to get my doctorate, but at that moment in undergrad I knew that if I chose communication, I would be choosing that over my
passion for psychology,” Holder said. “And this is where I found my biggest struggle.” But, it was circumstances as well as encouraging professors that lead her to study of communications. In 1985, Holder received her Masters degree from Ohio University. For two years, she studied communication and realized that she truly desired to mix her two passions together. Although she hit some speed bumps along the way, nothing stopped Holder from achieving her life long goals. These goals were to receive a Ph.D. in communication as well as be a college professor. She has achieved both of these goals.
In 1992 Dr. Holder earned her doctorate from Indiana University. Not only has Holder been serving the Peace community for 13 years and continues to pour out into her community, but she also has a passion for traveling. Holder has traveled to West Africa, India, Turkey, Serbia and is actively involved with a non-profit organization called Samaritan’s Purse. She has always had a love for the world and missions. “Africa really changed the way in which I see things and I really see the world in interdisciplinary ways,” she said. Through achieving her educational and career goals, Holder is now able to use both her passion for psychology and communication in her area of study. “Dr. Holder has been the best advisor as well as informational professor that I’ve had here at Peace,” said recent Peace College graduate, Sam Hightower. Holder is an extraordinary woman and impacts people around the world as well as continuing to impact the Peace community.
Cleaning your own space the eco-friendly way By Asia Sanchez Times Staff Writer
Housekeeping has been a long standing “tradition” here at Peace, but that bubble has been popped. Sorry girls, it’s time to clean your own toilet bowl -- not to mention your sink, shower, floor, and take out your trash while you’re at it. When asked how they felt about the recent change of events, students had mixed emotions. Second-year student Marketta Taylor-Graustuck said, “I know how to clean. I do it at home all the time. I just liked having a break from it while away at school.” However, third-year student Felicia Hilton said, “I find it down right despicable that [some of us] as women don’t know how to clean our own bathrooms.” Now that cleaning the bathroom is on your checklist, learning more about bathroom cleaners should also be on the list. When you clean your bathroom, do you reach for a bottle of chlorine bleach, or maybe another cleaning product? Have you ever taken the time to find out what is actually in the bottle that may cause skin or eye irritation, or in some cases blindness? A lot of household cleaners are very harmful to inhale, and should only be used in very well ventilated areas. The latter is one of the main reasons
the Environmental Service Department at Peace stopped using such toxic chemicals to clean. As Director of Environmental Services, Millie Vick said, “Housekeeping started using an eco-friendly brand of cleaning product not only for our [housekeeper’s] health, but for the health of Peace College. A lot of those [harmful] products can really take a toll on our breathing, and the toxic chemicals really add up when cleaning multiple rooms.” Comparing the ingredient lists on regular cleaning products and “ecofriendly” cleaning products, one notices a big difference. For example, Clorox cleaning wipes contain alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (an agricultural pesticide), as well as isopropanol. These ingredients can cause nose and throat irritation if inhaled, as well as severe eye irritation if contact with the eye is made. In addition, these cleaners can have an impact on the environment, due to the waste the manufacturers produce when making products with toxic ingredients. On the other hand, an “eco-friendly” cleaning wipe such as Earth Friendly Non-Abrasive Cleaning Towels contain milder and more natural ingredients: deionized water, plant derived surfactants, pressed orange oil, ethanol (derived from corn), vitamin E, aloe vera, chamomile, rosemary extracts, wheat germ oil and jojoba oil. And if you are out of store-bought
cleaners, there are some alternatives that you might be able to find at home already. Dr. Patricia Weigant, a Peace College Biology professor, says there are many household ingredients that can serve as great bathroom cleaners, such as vinegar for cleaning, baking soda for scrubbing and rubbing alcohol as glass cleaner. “Think about doing a small cleaning between your big cleaning,” Weigant said. “You may find that you don’t have to use such harsh chemicals if you don’t have much to clean in the first place. Resident Assistant and second-year student Lakisha Fitts said, “We need to educate ourselves and each other on the need to use ecofriendly products. I think it would be great to know how our cleaning products affect our health and our planet.” For more information about eco-friendly cleaning, there are many websites worth visiting including, ecofriendlycleaning.org and ecocycle.org.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to hit the stage By Naomi King Times Staff Writer
Lights, Camera….SHAKESPEARE!!! William Shakespeare will soon be here at Peace with his “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” It is a mystical love story with the occasional conflict between love and “arranged” marriage. The story is about a young girl, Hermia, who falls for a guy named Lysander. Because of the disapproval her father has on the subject of their love for each other, Hermia, along with her man, decides to run away into the forest where they find themselves engulfed in the enchanted atmosphere known to be found in the wildness of dreams. From fairies to ancient legends, this mystifying forest has it all. Theatre professor, Dr. Kenny Gannon, who directs the Shakespeare play,
calls it “delightful, [and] just so much fun.” Many Peace students will be performing in it as well as the very funny comedian/actor/English professor, Wade Newhouse, who wil play Nick Bottoms. “The characters are well- known, so lovable, [and] it will be beautiful to look at,” said Gannon, who admits that this is the first Shakespeare play he has ever directed. He made his first performance as Lysander in college. “I don’t think I was particularly good, but I had a great time,” Gannon said. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is like Romeo and Juliet, but without thefamily fighting, murder - and the suicide. Performances start from February 23, 2011 through March 1, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. in the Leggett Theatre. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit theatre.peace.edu.
Valentines Day is just around the corner By Lauren Mattingly Times Staff Writer
Whether you like it or not, Valentine’s Day, February 14th, is right around the corner. Many people have different traditions and some do not even celebrate. The holiday can bring extremely different emotions depending on a person’s “relationship status.” Those who are celebrating expect candy, flowers and cute cards. The History channel stated that, “according to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated one billion valentine cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year.” Peace College Senior Chris Hunter has a surprise for her boyfriend this year, “The Lakers and Bobcats game is the surprise I’m getting my boyfriend; kind of like Jay-Z and Beyonce, without the courtside.” Unfortunately for some people Valentine’s is on a Monday night this year, which means schedules may not match up.
Peace College Senior, Melissa Cheek said, “Since Valentine’s Day is on a Monday, my boyfriend and I will celebrate on Sunday. We plan on cooking dinner together and going to see a movie.” If you don’t have a significant other, going out with a group of your best friends always makes for an enjoyable holiday. Whether you are going out with your best friends or your significant other, have a Happy Valentine’s Day.

Peace volleyball team gets a serious new workout By Alexandra Parker Times Staff Writer
The Peace College volleyball team starts its spring season starting in February. The Pacers are working on a new three week work out plan and will be having some coach-led work outs at close by gym, Rapid Fitness. The new gym membership is a requirement within the program that head coach Kevin Daniels has implemented. This membership forces players to pay out of pocket for an amenity that Peace College offers. One benefit from using Rapid Fitness as an alternate facility is that players have the opportunity to participate in classes like boxing, mixed martial arts, cardio, and other personal training sessions. “This is all part of our efforts to jump high, run faster, and hit harder,” said Daniels
Junior at Peace, Amber Lowe says, “I can’t wait to be playing with the girls again, we’re going to do big things.” The extensive practice is in preparation for the girls to compete in a USA South two-player beach volleyball tournament held in Cary, North Carolina. Teams from across the conference will compete in the tournament. Dates are still to be released, and the location will be in the designated courts area at the Cary Parks and Recreation center. Team members say they are looking forward to a good spring season and can’t wait to start training for the Fall.
This year’s volleyball team has a new workout regimen to get players into peak condition.
Raleigh is home to many cutting-edge designers By Lindsay Allen Times Staff Writer
The talent in the city of Raleigh is endless. Musicians and bands abound in our downtown eves, artist galleries are open and plentiful, and new restaurants are continuously popping up with fresh recipes both from around the world and of their own creation. But one niche that often gets overlooked in reviews of Raleigh’s cultural hub are its numerous independent fashion and jewelry designers offering creative pieces both geared towards high fashion and as accents for everyday outfits. One of the most recent developments in design has been the opening of Patina Collaborative, the studio and shop of artist and crafter Jenn Hales. Located in the back alleys of City Market, the Patina Collaborative studio boasts, among cute, quirky paintings of primarily sea animals, a number of pieces of jewelry, home furnishings, and screen printed tees and scarves. The pieces are centered around the enchanting and playful; standout pieces include tentacle print scarves and tiny moss terrariums on necklace chains. “There’s so much beauty in the way trees form,” Hales states in reference to her work. “[There are ] spirals in flowers. [When creating] I aim for the natural, colorful, [and] whimsical.” She also states that she aims for local grassroots productions. “I do
all the screen printing myself,” she says, referring to the scarves and t-shirts. “One day I want all my materials to be from local, independent sources.” In addition, the t-shirts and scarves can be made custom in different color fabrics upon request. Patina Collaborative’s pieces can be purchased directly from the studio-store at 300 Blake St. or on patinacollaborative.etsy.com Another local independent label is the jewelry brand Bijou Savvy, run single-handedly out of her house by designer Susan Reynolds. The pieces in Bijou Savvy come in a wide range, from storybook pendants dripping with tiny teapot charms to industrial-looking bracelets crafted out of rusted copper to Harry Potter-themed vials of “Polyjuice Potion.” However, each piece contributes to Bijou Savvy’s cohesive theme of rustic, antique elegance and playfulness. Reynolds states that she draws inspiration from “the Victorian era, when fashion was very cluttered and feminine.” Her unique shabby-chic aesthetic has landed her a place in many local arts and crafts shows, including the Designer’s Downtown Market and the Wilmington Art Walk. Bijou Savvy’s pieces can be purchased off of bijousavvy.etsy.com. Etsy.com is a website where dePhoto courtesy of Patina Collaborative signers can showcase and sell their “Mushroom City” is one of many Patina Collaborative prints.
