IUP student killed in car accident By VAughn Johnson Editor-in-Chief V.M.Johnson@iup.edu
IUP student Baria Miley of Philadelphia died Thursday after she suffered multiple blunt force trauma as a result of a car accident on Route 422. Miley, 21, lost control of her 1999 Nissan Altima going eastbound on Route 422 near the Pike’s Peak Nursery in Cherry Hill Township and spun into the westbound lane. The car collided with a Jeep Grand Cherokee, according to coroner’s reports. The Jeep hit the passenger side
of Miley’s vehicle. The driver’s side door opened and ejected her from the vehicle. The accident occurred at 11:37 a.m. and was due to heavy rainfall, according to coroner’s reports. Miley was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:29 p.m. The driver of the Jeep, Lori Ann Belzano, 36, of Carrolltown, suffered only minor injuries. According to coroner reports, Miley was not wearing a seatbelt. Miley was a junior nursing major at IUP and a 2007 graduate from Overbrook High School in Philadelphia.
Ex-dean accused of forced labor for scholarship recipients
1-5 Bedroom s
A former top official at St. John’s University used her control over scholarships to force students to act as her personal servants, cleaning her house and chauffeuring her as part of a work requirement, federal prosecutors charged Thursday. Cecilia Chang, 57, a one-time top fundraiser, vice president and dean of Asian studies who was busted by state prosecutors in Queens in September for allegedly stealing $1 million, was accused of violating federal forced-labor and bribe-taking laws. The recipients of 15 scholarships she handed out — mostly Asian students — were required to cook, clean and wash clothes at Chang’s $1.7 million Queens home, drive for her and her law-student son, answer personal e-mails and conduct personal banking to fulfill a scholarship requirement of 20 hours of work per week. “Chang threatened the students and placed them in fear that if they refused to perform these personal services, they would lose their scholarships and be unable to attend St. John’s,” prosecutors said in a complaint in federal court in Brooklyn. Queens prosecutors charged last month that Chang, a leading fundraiser in Asia who was suspended by St. John’s in January, had diverted donations — including a $250,000 gift from a Saudi prince — into personal accounts, and had charged thousands in personal bills to her expense account. Chang was released from state custody Monday after making bail, but was held Thursday on the federal charges until she can put together a $1.5 million bail package that must include two properties posted by friends. A lien has been put on her house to secure the money she allegedly stole from St. John’s. Prosecutor Charles Kleinberg said
Chang holds both U.S. and Taiwanese passports, and had told a St. John’s official that she was ready to flee to Taiwan — which has no extradition treaty with the United States. “She’s putting her skates on and getting ready to go,” he said. Chang did not enter a plea, but defense lawyer Ron Rubenstein said the case involved an unusual use of federal forced-labor laws. He said his client — a divorced St. John’s grad with a master’s from Columbia University — frequently had dignitaries and donors stay at her home, so housekeeping duties may have been legitimate. “If they are in a work-study program, and this is what they’re doing, who is to say that’s not their work?” Rubenstein said. “ ... Cooking the meal, it doesn’t sound like work-study. But wait for the trial.” St. John’s, in a statement, described Chang as a 30-year employee who had been a trusted official until earlier this year. “If these allegations by federal authorities are true,” the statement said, “Ms. Chang’s treatment of some students and the environment she created are shocking and in complete violation of all the university stands for.”

Interim president addresses university-wide concerns at open forum By Megan Guza Managing Editor M.S.Guza@iup.edu
Faculty and staff had the opportunity to participate in an open forum with Interim President Dr. David Werner Friday morning in the Crimson Event Center, addressing concerns including furloughs, funding and Moodle. Werner began the forum by holding a moment of silence for IUP student Baria Miley, who was killed in a car accident Thursday. Discussions began with the president, updating faculty on the university’s 2010-2011 Performance Funding allocation, which he said turned out to be greater than expected. Funding will be approximately $5 million. Last year IUP received about $2.9 million. “The exact reason [for the change],” he said, “is not entirely clear. The formula changed from what it was last year, and it will change again next year.” He said the extra money would be put down on some of the debt the school has incurred. Also addressed was the fact that the school will be moving from Moodle to Desire 2 Learn for online coursework. Bill Balint, chief information officer, explained Moodle’s history and the State System of Higher Education’s request that all schools in the system use the same online course program. “We are going to support Moodle indefinitely until someone tells me I can’t,” Balint said. However, new faculty will be trained on Desire 2 Learn. The software that will help faculty switch from Moodle to Desire 2 Learn has just become available. The question of whether there could be a designated “speech area” away from the Oak Grove so as not to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere was also posed to Werner. It was noted that other institutions had tried this but were unsuccessful when the American Civil Liberties Union fought the idea and found it in violation of the First Amendment. The possibility of furloughs – temporary layoffs – for certain employees was addressed. The question was raised due to a recent email stating there will be no retrenchment, or cutting, of tenure and tenure-track faculty. “It would be less than honest to say I know that’s not going to happen,” Werner said in regard to the possibility of furloughs. “It’s something that just has to play out.” Werner also addressed faculty concerns regarding commencement practices and information on the

Geoscience professor teaches, researches at sea By Shane Craker Contrbuting Writer S.B.Craker@iup.edu
Dr. Steven Hovan has taught at IUP since 1994, and he usually teaches courses about oceanography, meteorology and climate change. From Sept. 6-19, however, he taught students aboard the JOIDES Resolution. The JOIDES Resolution, or Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Study, is an Ocean drilling vessel. Its mission was to collect sediment cores for study and implants sensors. These sensors monitor things such as pressure, temperature and microbial activity. Dr. Hovan said that these sensors could be used to investigate the causes and patterns of earthquakes. The data, which will be acquired over the next 10 years, could be very important to tectonic research. The sediment cores the ship brings up may have a great impact on the field of climatology.

They may also hold a crucial key. In these sediment cores is frozen methane. Found in a compound called a clathrate, the frozen methane is useful to studies about greenhouse gasses, global warming and even potential fuel sources.

It used to be that a gun and a mask were tools of the trade for bank robbers. But Manhattan and federal prosecutors, who Thursday announced that they had made arrests in an international cyber-crime ring, know that a tech-savvy criminal can do it with a few keystrokes. Thirty-seven people have been indicted on charges of using a computer virus — delivered by e-mail — to steal bank account information and passwords, and then transfer cash from identity theft victims’ accounts. The suspects stole at least $3 million, said Preet Bharara, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. The computer virus, known as Zeus Trojan Virus, originated in Eastern Europe, and “cyber mules” were used to transfer the stolen money back to ringleaders in countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus, prosecutors said in Manhattan Thursday. “The last several years have shown

that the mouse and the keyboard could be much more effective than the mask and the gun,” Bharara said. The Manhattan district attorney’s office started the investigation in February with one fraudulent bank transaction in Queens. The investigation revealed that foreign students, in the United States on student visas, used fake passport information to open bank accounts for the purpose of receiving cash transfers from identity theft victims’ accounts. Using the victims’ bank account information and account passwords gleaned from the computer virus spyware, the students transferred money from the victims’ accounts into accounts they created, and later either made withdrawals or wired money back to ring masterminds in Eastern Europe. The “cyber mules” were people in their 20s living in Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan, and recruited on social networking sites, prosecutors said. Multiple transfers in small amounts were used to avoid the banks becoming suspicious, investigators said.

Obama urges students to remain informed, engaged in political process By Katie Crow MCT
Facing national polls showing decreased enthusiasm among young people, President Obama spent the week rallying college students nationwide to stay “fired up” throughout the upcoming midterm elections. “We can’t sit this one out,” the president told a crowd of more than 25,000 Tuesday at the University of Wisconsin. “We cannot let this country fall back because the rest of us didn’t stand up and fight.” Later in the week, Obama excited young supporters at a rally hosted by the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C, reminding them: “we’ve been through worse as a nation and have come out stronger.” “It was always going to be hard, he said at Thursday’s combined rally and concert event, organized for the Democratic National Committee’s Gen44 Group. “I need you to stay fired up, all the way to Nov. 2, because Nov. 2 is going to say a lot about your future.” The Gen44 group was founded as a fundraising, outreach and activation group that continues to attract college-age individuals and young professionals.

The president said Sept. 27 in a conference call with student journalists nationwide that in a single generation, our country has fallen from first place to 12th in college graduation rates. “We want to open to the doors of our colleges and universities to more people so they can learn, they can graduate, and they can succeed in life,” Obama said in his discussion of the educational reforms his administration has implemented thus far.

He also mentioned the need for government to put pressure on universities to examine their spending habits and the importance of students’ exposure to “jobs of the future.” “Community colleges are going to play a critical role in making sure that

Housing Consolidation Period begins
“There’s a decreased empathy that sometimes comes with social media.” — Neil Bernstein, adolescent psychologist
New perils exposed as Web users cede privacy By John Timpane The Philadelphia Inquirer MCT
If you’re 20 years old or younger, you probably grew up using computers, cell phones, iPods and Facebook. Photos, for you, are images not necessarily printed on paper. CDs are old hat. You take digital — digital everything — for granted. In such a world, how easy is it to record and be recorded, to share your — or someone else’s — most intimate secrets by posting them on the Web? All too easy. Easy gathering and distribution of information are hallmarks of the digital age. They played out all too disastrously for first-year Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi. Clementi committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge in New York Sept. 22, three days after roommate Dharun Ravi, 18, allegedly made and streamed online a secret video of an encounter between Clementi and another man. Clementi’s body was identified Sept. 29. Ravi and Rutgers freshman Molly Wei, also 18, have been charged with invading his privacy, and Middlesex County, N.J., prosecutors say bias-crime charges are possible. Clementi even said farewell via Facebook: “Jumping off the gw bridge sorry.” Clementi’s death has spurred fierce debate, on and off campus and on the Internet, about social media, changing notions of privacy, and whether or not what happened was a crime. Emily Nussbaum, frequent writer on social media and privacy issues and editor at large for New York magazine, said, “I am completely baffled about why people don’t
make a distinction between what you do and do not post.” But she also sees three important forces at work in this story: “The availability and ease of the technology; the growing normalcy of porn, especially the rise of amateur porn, in which you post sexual images of yourself or others, and the social networking change in people’s attitude toward privacy.” Neil Bernstein is an adolescent psychologist in Washington and author of “How To Keep Your Teenager Out of Trouble and What to Do If You Can’t.” He sees two trends converging: the “dilution of intimacy” brought about by the new media, and what he calls “behavior contagion,” or the tendency of people to do what those around them are doing. The Web can connect people in strong, healthy ways, Bernstein said. But the dark side is that our notion of intimacy may be diluted. “There’s a decreased empathy that sometimes comes with social media,” he said. “Because they’re online, people will consider themselves intimate with people they don’t really know at all. And this has an impact on relationships.” Then there’s “behavior contagion.” All around you, your friends and acquaintances post information once thought “private:” names of boy - or girlfriends, social plans, secrets. Technology does change attitudes, and fast. “When phones became cameras,” Nussbaum said, “every friend you had became your paparazzo. All the previous ethical boundaries about taking photos of someone else without express permission, which used to be seen as an invasion of privacy — that’s all but gone now.” Which leaves all of us vulnerable.
Rob D’Ovidio, associate professor of criminal justice in the department of culture and communications at Philadelphia’s Drexel University, said that low-cost, miniaturized recording technology is “entering the widespread public domain.” In the past, we needed to worry only about Big Brother: government and corporate entities with the power to gather and manipulate private info. “Now,” said D’Ovidio, “we’re in the era where we have to watch everyone, including other consumers, our colleagues, our classmates — we have to watch everyone from now on. “Big Brother has trickled down to the Everyperson.” Opportunity — and temptation — to misuse social media are everywhere. “The will to betray, the will to deceive, is out there,” said Gary T. Marx, professor emeritus of social science at MIT. Social media simply make it easier. Debate among young people shows that they, too, are still negotiating issues of privacy and responsibility in the social-media world. In an interview on campus Thursday, Brendan Mangan, 20, a junior in chemistry at Philadelphia’s Temple University, said he thinks “ridicule” was the aim of the video posting, and believes it played “a big part” in Clementi’s death. Drexel medical student Daniel Devine, 22, thinks Twitter postings preceding the video show that the act was “premeditated.” But Temple communications junior Mike Oberlies, 20, believes manslaughter charges are not warranted because “it was not their goal to kill him.” In all the debate, few are likely to disagree with psychologist Bernstein: “It’s just terribly, terribly, terribly sad.”

Oct. 4 marked the beginning of the Housing Consolidation Period at IUP. It will last until Friday, Oct. 22. Conducted by the Office of Housing and Residence Life, the consolidation is used to free up as many available rooms as possible. By consolidating the number of partially filled rooms, more incoming spring students will be able to be accommodated. Completely empty rooms allow incoming spring students to be given greater flexibility in choosing a room. Consolidating rooms allows incoming students to choose their own roommate as well. Students who are not living in a full room may see some change in their living arrangements. Some students may be required to fill an empty space by living with a new student. Others will need to move to a new room entirely. According to OHRL, of the 3,800 students that live on campus, 1 to 2 percent will be affected
by the consolidation. JT Faught, the assistant director for occupancy, said that movement will not occur between buildings. She emphasized that no one will be moving across campus. Also, there will be no movement between room types. She added that such a move would change a student’s financial situation. Students that are required to move or accept another roommate will be notified through e-mail. The e-mail will contain details on how, when and where students should move. Usually 72 hours is given as the time frame within which to move. If a student needs more time, Faught encourages them to make arrangements with OHRL. “We are very flexible,” she said. OHRL understands that students may be balancing a large course load, including tests, essays and jobs, so their goal is to make the process as simple as possible. More information is available by visiting OHRL in Ruddock Hall, calling 724-357-2696, or visiting http://www.iup.edu/housing/.

Wiretapping, privacy a balancing act Editorial
McClatchy-Tribune News Service MCT
It isn’t hard to figure out why the Obama administration wants to make it easier for police and spy agencies to eavesdrop on the latest forms of Internet communication. The burden of keeping the nation safe from crooks and terrorists is daunting, especially in an increasingly virtual world, and it’s sensible for law enforcement to seek every possible advantage. But critics are right to ask whether proposed new regulations could pose a threat to privacy. This is one time when Congress is justified in taking a cautious approach. Any changes in privacy laws will require careful scrutiny to avoid needless erosion of Americans’ civil liberties. The 1994 Communications Assistance to Law Enforcement Act requires that companies provide the government the ability to intercept phone and broadband communications with proper cause. But as San Jose Mercury News reporter Troy Wolverton noted this week, increasingly, telephone calls and other communications are
encrypted or made outside traditional phone networks using technologies such as Voice over Internet Protocol and peer-to-peer networking. The Obama administration wants the same ability to tap into those conversations that it has with other forms of communication. It’s a reasonable expectation. But technology creates challenges for lawmakers, who also must protect law-abiding users. Telecom companies use encryption to keep hackers and others from invading users’ privacy online, and it also helps assure the authenticity of the person sending the communication. Devising a way for the government to break into encrypted communication will be costly for the companies involved. It will also make online conversations more susceptible to hackers. Every software designer in Silicon Valley knows that if there’s a way for someone to break into a system, they’ll figure it out — it’s only a matter of time. Hackers aren’t the only threat.

nation’s economic future. A delay in finding a solution may make the United States more vulnerable to terrorist attack. But that’s a risk worth taking to preserve reasonable expectations of individual and business privacy. The Obama administration should sit down with Internet communication companies and find the best way to balance these conflicting needs in current and future technology. In the meantime, everyone should bear in mind that wiretaps are not the only means to root out criminals or terrorism threats. Bugs, surveillance cameras and access to huge databases can put vast amounts of information at the government’s disposal. And it’s not as if wiretaps are completely worthless. A government report issued in April reveals that the federal government had been granted more than 2,000 wiretaps in 2009, up more than 70 percent from a decade ago. Federal law enforcement agencies should be encouraged to keep seeking legitimate ways to intercept communications from those who would do the nation harm. But they should not be permitted to trample over online users’ reasonable expectations of privacy.
MCT Vice President Joe Biden and wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will speak at the first Summit on Community Colleges Tuesday.
Getting rightful spotlight By Juleyka LantiguaWilliams Los Angeles Times MCT
As an instructor at a community college, I’m delighted the White House is spotlighting the importance of institutions like mine. On Oct. 5, Jill Biden, Vice President Joe Biden’s wife and a 17-year veteran professor at a community college, will convene the first-ever White House Summit on Community Colleges to address their “critical role ... as part of America’s economic vision for the future.” The future has always been very much in sight at community colleges, which diligently prepare millions of professionals for careers that have a tremendous impact on our lives. For instance, close to 80 percent of our firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel are trained at our nation’s 1,173 community colleges, according to the American Association of Community Colleges. Future accountants, actors and directors, computer software engineers, electricians, entrepreneurs, nurses, plumbers and teachers get degrees there. Though our work usually goes unheralded, community colleges are booming. The number of students enrolled at community colleges last fall was 11.4 percent higher than in fall 2008, and 16.9 percent higher than in fall 2007. I see this growth every day in my classroom. I welcome more eager new students every semester. Among my students are young veterans just returning from serving our country, single mothers striving to improve their families’ odds, immigrants who are the first to attend college, grandmothers who lost their longtime jobs and seek retraining and high school
honor students who couldn’t afford tuition at private schools. My students humble and challenge me with their zeal, intelligence and drive: like Alberta A., a middle-age student who worked the graveyard shift at a hospital, but still managed to arrive on time to our 8 a.m. class. Like Helen V., mother of a 20-yearold college student, who got on the Dean’s List before he did. Or like Rosie B., a young widower from Brazil who is so determined to become a pharmacist she asked for extra work to improve her English. Community colleges are successful because, unlike private colleges, they don’t care where you’ve been — personally, socially or economically — but are focused on where you want to go, and in helping you get there. They are also truly accessible, both geographically and financially. Most are located at the hearts of the communities they serve. And going to community college costs only about $2,500 per year. The College Board reports that on average, in-state tuition for public four-year colleges is almost three times more expensive than the tuition for community colleges. Tuition at private four-year colleges is more than ten times as costly. Because community colleges are relatively inexpensive, they attract a diverse student body: 42 percent are the first to attend college in their families; about 40 percent are students of color; 16 percent are 40 or older, as reported by the American Association of Community Colleges. It’s about time the national spotlight shone on community colleges. But after all the fanfare and attention fade, we’ll go back quietly about our business shaping the future of this country, one student at a time.

Proposition 8 showdown looms By wendy leung Inland Valley Daily Bulletin (Calif.) MCT
As lawyers on both sides of Proposition 8 prepare to wage a battle in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and perhaps the U.S. Supreme Court, opponents and supporters of the state ban on gay marriage are weighing their chances. This month, attorneys for the two couples who sued successfully to overrule Proposition 8 are due to file their arguments in response to a 134page opening brief from supporters of the ban. Arguments filed last month criticized U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker for striking down the ballot measure and being “one-sided.” A 9th Circuit panel of three judges is expected to hear oral arguments in the case starting Dec. 6. Many eyes are already on the nation’s highest court, a possible destination for what has become one of the most debated social issues in recent years. “I think it’s the civil rights battle of this generation,” said Ben Bishin, a political science professor at UC Riverside. Proponents of the 2008 ballot initiative are cautiously optimistic. If the Supreme Court takes the case, it will be decided by a nine-member panel with a conservative lean. Benjamin Lopez, a legislative
analyst for the Traditional Values Coalition, contends Proposition 8 will go all the way up to the Supreme Court and as a supporter of the measure, he believes it’s a good thing. “Given the current makeup of the court, on contentious issues, it’s conservative,” Lopez said. “Five to four is the typical ruling, and we hope that’s the case again.” “I pray every day that our five are alive and healthy; that they don’t get sick, hurt or be removed from the bench.” But some believe the conservative majority on the court is a fragile one. A swing vote means that the future of gay marriage could very well be decided by just one justice – Anthony Kennedy. “It’s true the court is pretty conservative but Kennedy is less conservative on individual rights issues,” Bishin said. “He would much likely allow extending rights to disadvantaged groups.” Kennedy, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, tends to vote conservative on contentious issues but his record on gay issues is mixed. Although he was among the majority to uphold the Boy Scouts’ right to ban gays from membership, he sided with the liberal fraction of the court in Lawrence v. Texas. That 2003 case struck down state laws that made gay sex a crime.
Justice Antonin Scalia was vocally frustrated and angered by the 2003 ruling and called the majority opinion a “massive disruption of the current social order.” Bishin said if the matter winds up in the Supreme Court, Scalia could surprise us. Bishin contends there’s a possibility that Scalia could get hung up on the issue of whether Proposition 8 proponents have any standing. It’s still unclear whether opponents to same-sex marriage have any standing to appeal Walker’s Aug. 4 decision because they may not be able to show any harm or injury due to the ruling. “There’s an argument made that Scalia, while he wouldn’t be a fan of gay marriage, does question the issue of standing,” Bishin said. Last month, the state Supreme Court ruled that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown are not required to uphold the ballot initiative and appeal Walker’s ruling. It was a blow to backers of Proposition 8 and raises the issue of whether anyone has standing to appeal. If the 9th Circuit Court believes Proposition 8 supporters do not have standing to appeal, the case may never make it to the Supreme Court. If that is the case, gays and lesbians could legally wed without knowing how Scalia, Kennedy or any of the nine justices would rule on the issue.
With youth comes the feeling of invincibility. We seem to have a profound misunderstanding of our mortality until the time comes when we are soberly reminded of it through tragedy. It seems that each year, the campus community receives such an unpleasant wake-up call in the form of the loss of a classmate. Through these sad events, we come together and reflect on our short lives, remembering that tomorrow is only ever a possibility, not a promise. Perhaps it seems morbid to live with your mortality ever before you. Maybe this is why we ignore how fragile and uncertain our lives really are. We are faced now with another reminder in the loss of IUP student Baria Miley. Unexpected loss often hits the hardest. We all have stories of classmates, friends, family members gone to soon. Some carry around the weight of regret in feelings left unexpressed, words left unspoken. But to allow tragedy to rule our lives is to do a disservice to our loved ones who have passed. The range of emotions one feels following a death is natural, and they should not be suppressed. Do not bottle up your feelings – it is not a sign of weakness to cry or to seek support. It is also important to gain focus on one’s own life following a tragedy. Tell your friends and family that you love them; go out of your way to commit a random act of kindness. Do not be so brash as to think you are immortal, or that your words and actions do not affect those around you. The most important thing you can do in your life is to positively impact the lives of others. A kind word or action, no matter how little, can have a profound effect on the recipient. You never know what trials your community members face; you could have the power to help them without even realizing it. As we head toward the most raucous weekend of the semester, remember to take care of yourself and those around you. Behave responsibly, and act with purpose. We never know what tomorrow holds.

Joey Comeau visits IUP to discuss new book By emily mross Copy Editor E.L.Mross@iup.edu
Illness did not keep author Canadian Joey Comeau from speaking to IUP students and reading from his new book Thursday at Beard Auditorium in Stouffer Hall. Though he was suffering from a cold, Comeau addressed approximately 50 students about writing and intellectual freedom. The event was hosted by the Secular Student Alliance as a part of Banned Books Week and Blasphemy Day. Comeau said in an interview Thursday that he is used to bookstore readings, and had never done an event like his talk at IUP. He had also never done an event for Banned Books Week. “It doesn’t make sense to ban books,” Comeau said. “Kids can find things that are 10 times worse on the Internet every second.” “I don’t have much to say about banned books,” said Comeau during his talk. “So I’m going to read to you from one of my favorites. “ Before he began, Comeau, who traveled to IUP from Toronto for the Block Fleeger/The Penn event, quipped about traveling while Joey Comeau, visited IUP to promote his ill. new book for Banned Books Week . “Flying sick and having your molestation, but the subject matter ears pop feels like you’re having an aneurysm,” Comeau said before became to depressing.

On-campus, off-campus housing can make, break students’ wallets By imani dillard Senior Staff Writer I.J.Dilard@iup.edu
According to IUP’s website, IUP has an enrollment of a 15,126 students this year, and with on-campus housing capacity only reaching around 4,300, according to the Office of Housing andResidential Life, that leaves a lot of students to find other means of living. Now on-campus housing looks very tempting with the residential revival being finished, but is it worth the price tag? Campus housing does offer some variable price ranges with the suites ranging from $3,162 to $4,124 per semester and on top of that every resident in the suites has to pay $95.00 per semester for the upkeep of the common areas. Traditional resident halls (i.e. Elkin, Whitmyre and McCarthy) are $2,065 for a double room or $2,934 for a single room. The campus’ apartment styled University Towers range from $2,485 to $3,828. Living on campus has its advantages. Students who live on campus are never a far walk from their classes and they never have to worry about utility or cable/internet bills. As well as the QPA for students who live on campus versus the students who don’t, tends to be higher. “This has been a steady trend for the past decade,” said Jenny Faught, Assistant Director for Occupancy of the OHRL. “There are many variables that contribute to this outcome. Research supports a greater opportunity for academic and social engagement, and consequently persistence, for on-
campus versus off-campus students, which likely reveals itself through overall satisfaction and QPA.” However, there are a few downsides to living on campus. Every student who lives on campus (with the exception of University Towers’ residents) is required to get a meal plan, which is more money that has to be put out by the student to pay. Meal plans range from $1,181 to $1,240 per semester. In addition students who live on-campus do not get the same freedoms that come with living off-campus. All on-campus housing has Community Assistants (CAs) to be the visual of at all environments, according to former CA Keith Stinnette (senior, child development and Family relations and Spanish), to make sure parties aren’t happening, quiet hours are enforced and other school regulations are being adhered to. Garry Herndon (senior, communications media) said that one of the best things about living off campus is that there are no quiet hours and more freedom to do what he wants, but misses living on campus because all of his classes were right by where he lived. Now with off campus housing there are also a lot of pros and cons. Off-campus housing already comes with a freedom that could never be achieved with on campus housing. Once a student moves off campus, the real responsibility of being an adult starts to set in with rent and in some cases bills having to be taken care of by themselves. Living off-campus can in itself be a learning experience that will teach many students how to be responsible

with their finances. Off-campus is in mostly all cases cheaper than living on campus. Dorm style off campus housing like provided by Leininger Hall and Thomas Hall range from $1,395 to $1,950 per semester. With these dorm style apartments students are very close to campus and don’t have to worry about any utility bills. There are other types of off-campus housing. Many tend to be traditional apartments and a lot of these come with monthly rent as opposed to semester rent. Many of these renters will not wait for a student’s financial aid refund for rent. A lot of these apartments also require the student to pay for at least some of the utilities. Apartments rented by Kuzneski & Lockard, Inc, range from $330 to $640 per month per person depend-

Living off campus can be a very fun and educating experience if its done right. According to Ms. Faught, there are a few things students should remember if they are looking for off campus hosing. Check out the apartment/house thoroughly. Look for signs that the property is well maintained, such as mowed lawns, litter picked up, cleanliness of the apartment, and overall good condition of the building. Are utilities included? Is there parking? Read and understand the lease before signing it and submitting it. The student should check with their parents if they are helping the student fund their college housing/tuition. If a student signs up to live on campus, they should not sign a lease off campus.

Properties owned by Copper Beech Townhomes range from $640 to $1490 per month depending on the number of rooms the apartment has, which utilities the landlord is paying for and where the apartment is located.

Biggest Loser contest returns for fall semester By amanda pearson Staff Writer A.E.Pearson@iup.edu
The bi-annual Biggest Loser competition is back! Thirty contestants will compete for eight weeks for a free one-year membership to the James Mill Fitness center and a gift basket. “The contest usually brings in about 20 in the fall, but we’ve added a Saturday workout day with the staff so we Dreamstime can keep invovled with all of our members and their progress, which I think is what enticed people to come out for the contest this year,” Shaina Smith (advisor, health and physical education) said. In addition to regular gym visits, contestants are offered customized weight training programs and free nutrition counseling, according to
Smith. “This year we will be awarding one man and one woman who loses the greatest percentage of fat,” Smith said. Body fat was assessed at the beginning of the competition on Sept. 27 and will be assessed at the end, Nov. 22. The person who loses the most body fat percentage will be announced on the fitness center’s website. The Biggest Loser competition has been at IUP for five years. If students are interested in a membership with the James Mill fitness Center, they can visit from 6-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9-11 a.m. on Saturdays. Memberships are $50 a semester with an enrollment fee of $15. “It is a great alternative to the HUB gym where it is constantly overpopulated,” Smith said.
Student organization promotes safe sex through event By aubree napoleon Contributing Writer A.L.Napoleon@iup.edu
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), founded in 1909, is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization in the United States, according to NAACP.org. The principal objective of the NAACP is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of the United States, according to the website. “In order to have a safe and fun Homecoming, students need to be aware of the different kind of problems associated with unprotected sex,” Joy Parham-Thomas (senior, hospitality management), NAACP

The NAACP, in conjunction with the Center of Health and WellBeing, will sponsor an event, “Gettin’ Freaky 2.0,” 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the HUB Delaware Room, as a follow-up to “Gettin’ Freaky 101,” which took place last year. To make this year’s event successful, the NAACP promised more games, more prizes and, to promote safe sex, more free condoms. Courtesy of Health AWAREness, this program will also provide professional advice on sexual topics. “This program exists to answer those questions you may have about safe sex with quick and trustworthy advice on a large range of sexual related topics also, to promote healthy sexual behaviors among minority students.”

Greek organization aims to stop stereotyping on campus By ida arici Contributing Writer I.D.Arici@iup.edu
On Thursday, Sept. 30, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated hosted a program “If You Really Knew Me,” in G-43 Putt Hall. As students filled the seats, a PowerPoint slideshow displaying a quote describing the program was projected onto a white screen. “If You Really Knew Me” was meant to get people to open their eyes and to share their secrets. “I think we will definitely do [If You Really Knew Me] every year and maybe every semester if we get enough people to participate,” Sigma Gamma Rho President Arielle Norment (senior, child and family studies) said. The second slide portrayed images of people. Marpu Biawogei (senior, sociology), Sigma Gamma Rho Vice President, focused on the picture, displaying a woman with a headscarf, and asked the group to give any
stereotypes that came to their minds. Certain words like “Muslim” were given about the vision of the young woman. Another picture displayed a man smiling with his head resting on his hand, and the nearly unanimous stereotype given about him was he was “homosexual.” “Once people found out I was African, they [would ask me], ‘Do you braid?’ What we need to do is figure out how to break down these stereotypes and how to get past what we see,” Biawogei said. In order to show that one should never judge a book by its cover, Biawogei asked the group to share something about themselves that a person would not know about them, based on their looks. After each person shared, the group discussed some of the issues and secrets that were put out on the table. This emotionally-charged program concluded with Biawogei’s remarks and a few concluding questions asked by Norment concerning the event.

Starting Oct. 7, Theater-by-theGrove will present “Crimes of the Heart,” a Pulitzer Prize winning comedic play written by Beth Henley and directed by theater professor Barb Blackledge. “Crimes of the Heart” takes place in 1974 Hazelhurst, Miss. The play surrounds the lives of the three McGrath sisters, each of whom have committed their own crimes of the heart. The three sisters, Babe, Meg and Lenny go through many trials throughout the play. Babe, the youngest, played by Carolyn Chiurco (junior, theater) has just been accused of shooting her husband at the play’s opening. “Babe is very outspoken and always lives in the moment, but she does carry a feeling of loneliness,” Chiurco said, regarding her character. Meg, the middle sister, played by Tiffany Hall Campbell (senior, psychology/theater) is the independent sister who does not like to let others in. “Meg is a brick wall; she can be stubborn and very blunt.” Hall Campbell said about her character. Lenny, the oldest, played by

Whitney Weimer (senior, theater) is the most caring of the three, so much that she forgets to give back to herself. “Lenny is a pleaser who cares too much about people and is easily pressured into doing things people ask of her.” Chiurco said of Weimer’s character. The play displays humor for the audience, especially with characters like Chic Boyle, first cousin to the
McGraths, played by Emma Shaver (senior, theater) who causes trouble and is the antagonist of the play. The play runs Oct. 7-9, 13-16 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 10 at 2 p.m. at the Waller Hall Mainstage of the IUP Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $8 for IUP students and I-Card holders, $14 for regular admission and $12 for senior citizens and groups of 15 or more.

Yoga encourages healthy life, more flexible limbs By keri durrett Staff Writer K.D.Durrett@iup.edu
The Princeton Dictionary defines yoga as “a Hindu discipline aimed at training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquility.” The original intention of yoga was to master both the body and the mind, as well as offering a form of worship to a higher power. Exam dates, lengthy papers and job stress can crowd a student’s mind and body. Yoga is an integrative program — it focuses on three mains areas: the mind, the body and the spirit. Though many individuals only ever think of the physical benefits of yoga, it is clear that they reap the other benefits as well. Jill Fiore, the director of Sunflower Yoga Studio, opened the Philadelphia Street studio because she believed in the benefits of yoga. “I’m often stressed,” Fiore said. “I have a ‘Type A’ personality and yoga helps me to calm down. It soothes me
and provides focus.” “[There are many] benefits!” she added. “At its most basic, practicing yoga regularly will tone the body, increase flexibility, build stamina and invigorate the system. A regular yoga practice can also help address a wide range of physical problems, such as [pre-menstrual syndrome], arthritis, insomnia, backaches, obesity and fatigue.” The benefits of yoga are not subjected to students only, but faculty, as well. Fiore explained that she was a distance education English professor once and how yoga benefited her during her teaching career. “Yoga [helped] me to deal with the stress of my students,” she said. “Yoga is for everyone! Modifications are generally given for whatever level of fitness and flexibility you enjoy.” Sunflower Yoga Studio, located at 580 Philadelphia Street, offers a $5 introductory rate and discounted rates for registered students with classes every day of the week.

Hawks drop two games to Buffalo By Zach Graham Staff Writer Z.Graham@iup.edu
The Crimson Hawks menâ€™s ice hockey team dropped both of their games against the Buffalo Bulls this weekend. On Friday, the Hawks came up short with a 5-3 loss. Saturday they played even closer but, were defeated 5-4. With the two loses, the Hawks dropped to 1-2-0 on the season. During the first match-up Friday, the Bulls scored first on a shorthanded goal by Matt Ganci. Joe Ford answered for the Hawks with an assist from EJ Stepano, but Daniel Wendt shortly scored for the Bulls, giving them a 2-1 lead after the first period. In the second period, Buffalo extended its lead with three goals. The Hawks answered with just one from Jim Ketler, which cut the Bullsâ€™ lead to 5-2 after two periods. Lance Lewandowski added one more for the Hawks, but they were unable to come up with anything more, losing with a final score of 5-3. In the game, the teams combined
for 80 penalty minutes, including a 10-minute game misconduct to three players. Saturday afternoon, the two teams were scoreless through the first period. It was the Hawks who got on the board first, just over five minutes into the second period, when Brody Aukerman fired a gloveside shot behind Bulls goaltender Rich Lutana. The Hawks did not hold the lead for long when Buffaloâ€™s Timothy Benner skated through the defense to tie the game at 1 with 11:36 left in the period. Seconds later, however, the Hawksâ€™ Chris Clouiter deflected a shot in off of the crossbar to put IUP back on top, 2-1. They would hold for a few minutes, until the Bullsâ€™ Scott Mack took a pass from across the crease and put the puck behind Hawks goaltender Padraig Carey for the 2-2 tie. With 5:40 left in the second, John Fitzgerald scored on what was initially ruled a goal, but after second look to the goal was disallowed. The officials determined that Carey had indeed covered up the puck. Upon even further discussion
between the officials and coaches, the goal was allowed again, disallowed again, before ultimately being counted, giving the Bulls the lead for good. The Bulls added one more for good measure in the second period to open a 4-2 lead. In the third period, the Bulls added a fifth and final goal with 11:12 left. The Hawks did their best to battle back from the three-goal deficit. The Hawks controlled much of the last 10 minutes of play. Casey Stern scored on the power play with 8:22 left to make it 5-3. Ford added another for the Hawks with 5:34 left. Even though the Hawks controlled the puck most of the remaining time, they could not find another goal, leaving with a 5-4 final. Next weekend the Hawks will travel to Youngstown, Ohio to take part in the ACHA Showcase. The event will feature 27 games and 18 teams. The Hawks will face off against No. 12 Adrian (4:15 p.m. Friday), No. 8 Minot State (2:30 p.m. Saturday) and No. 18 Robert Morris (Illinois) (1:30 p.m. Sunday).

IUP uses defense, running game to shut out Edinboro, 18-0 thing I do know as a coach is that it doesnâ€™t matter how much the wind blows or how much it rains, if you can run the ball, you can win games.â€? Tuck was not the only running back out there for IUP. Teddy Blakeman and James Johnson were both able to pick up 110 yards on the groud. IUP reciever Roy-al Edwards was wasnâ€™t able to pick up much, but had 36 yards to his name after three rushing attempts on the end-around. The cold and rainy conditions stripped IUP of its passing game, as it was abandoned in the second half, completely. IUP did not throw the ball once in during the second half. â€œObviously we donâ€™t want to go through games not throwing it the second half, and weâ€™ve got to get much better at throwing it to win in the future, but today it was the right recipe for what we had to do.â€? IUP quarterback Bo Napoleon finished the game completing four of 11 passes for 64 yards. While he didnâ€™t throw any touchdowns for the second consecutive week, he threw no interceptions for the second consecutive week as well. â€œMy job was just to manage the game, make sure I got clean snaps, make sure I [get the ball] to my running backs,â€? Napoleon said after the game. â€œOur [offensive] line dominated [their defensive line].â€? The offensive line has been playing well enough for the Hawks to run for 303 yards against the Edinboro defense. â€œWhen it started raining, I wasnâ€™t worried at all about it,â€? IUP offensive

The IUP football team traveled to Edinboro Saturday to pick up another conference win, 18-0. For the second week in a row, the IUP defense shut out its opponent. â€œThatâ€™s rare, for sure,â€? IUP Head Coach Lou Tepper said after the game. â€œI thought we had a good plan going in. We had to adjust it a little bit as well to the rain.â€? Despite the rough conditions, the IUP offense was able to muster up a good running game, even though that wasnâ€™t the original game plan. â€œThe plan going in it wasnâ€™t to run that much,â€? Tepper said. â€œThe plan going in didnâ€™t include the rain that we had, and it was so raw out there. It was just hard for both quarterbacks to throw the ball effectively.â€? Even though he was out against Slippery Rock, Harvie Tuck came in this week and proved that he is still the dominant runner that the team thought he would be. â€œIâ€™m glad to be back,â€? Tuck said about his performance after his absence last week. â€œThe line gave me huge holes today. Every time I had running room, I just ran behind the hogs. Tried to do what we could; we just had to run the ball.â€? Tuck gained 168 on 32 carries and scored a touchdown. His performance was good enough for the PSAC West Offensive Player of the Week award. â€œI think we were the more physical running team,â€? Tepper said. â€œThe one

lineman Jim Oâ€™Rouke said. â€œBecause I know what we wanted to do going into it. Anytime you donâ€™t have to throw the rock in the second half, itâ€™s those games we love, you know, because we control [the game].â€?

But the game wasnâ€™t all good news for IUP. Wide reciever Javon Rowan was injured during the game and was taken off the field in the first half. â€œJavon is big,â€? Napoleon said. â€œHe knows this offense well. Heâ€™s a big

threat when weâ€™re running the ball. I donâ€™t know the extent of his injury I just hope he get back as fast as he can.â€? Without Rowan, the IUP offense will have to continue using the run game to effectively control the game. For the time being, the team will have to move on without him. IUP kicker Craig Burgess also had some missed opportunities with two missed extra points and a missed field goal. This coming just after he was honored with the Fred Mitchell Award Commitee for his kicking preformance in the month of September. So far this season, the IUP football team has managed to deal with injuries and setbacks, but have managed to outscore its opponents by an average of four points a game. â€œFor us to be good Iâ€™d like to do what we did against East Stroudsburg; run for 200 and throw for 200, but today, the conditions dictated to do what we did.â€? Tepper said. IUP (4-1, 2-0) will host Mercyhurst 2 p.m. Saturday for its annual Homecoming game.

Crimson Hawks get early start in 5-2 win By a.j. Pagano Staff Writer A.J.Pagano@iup.edu
The IUP field hockey team went into the weekend with a 2-4 record and a hunger to win Saturday on the road at Mercyhurst. The game started off with an early Mercyhurst goal as the Lakers took a quick 1-0 lead. Sickman tallied a goal for IUP to tie it at 1. A few minutes later, Sickman scored again to give IUP the 2-1 lead. Mercryhurst tallied another goal right before the end of the half, and the game was tied at 2 at intermission. In the second half, the Hawks exploded. Junior Shannon Sullivan started the rout by breaking the tie with her third goal of the year. Sickman added a goal to complete the hat trick. Sickman now leads the team with eight goals on the season. After Sickman completed her hat trick, Sullivan added another goal to complete the rout that gave IUP the 5-2 victory. IUP outshot Mercyhurst 31-5 and was in complete control, taking the momentum of its three-goal outburst right into the last game of the
weekend Sunday against Bellarmine. Freshman Danielle Edwards started the scoring with her first career goal, which gave the Hawks a 1-0 lead. Sophomore Erin Shirk and Sullivan scored two more goals to make it a 3-0 game. Bellarmine was able to score before the half, and IUP took the 3-1 lead. Bellarmine scored again early in

the 18th minute, off the toe of Lindsay “Lobo” Lobevero, and the 19th minute, from Melissa Kornock, assisted by Carter Sheely. Rams striker Sara Oswald answered with a goal a minute and a half later. The game was scoreless for the rest of the first half. Eleven minutes into the second half, Sheely assisted Kornock again for another goal, her 10th of the season. West Chester’s offense, however, proved hard for IUP to stop, as the Hawks continued to commit penalties and garner yellow cards. Less than a minute after Kornock’s second score, West Chester drew a penalty kick and put senior and University of Tennessee transfer Devon Swaim to the line. She got one by IUP goalkeeper Kelly Brennan, bringing the score to 3-2. West Chester’s offense was relentless for the rest of the half, and had a tired Hawks’ defense putting balls out of bounds to keep it out of the zone, resulting in numerous

throw-ins and corner kicks in the Rams’ favor. Rams’ freshman midfielder Maddie Mitchell was able to make good on one of these from Swaim in the 68th minute to tie the game at 3. IUP was unable, despite several offensive runs, to retake the lead in the last 13 minutes and the game went into overtime, with the kickoff advantage going to the Rams. The Hawks, playing uphill on
their own field, were tired and the Rams were relentless, and after eight hard-fought minutes, Sara Oswald met sophomore midfielder Jen Hutchinson on a corner kick, which she put in the back of the net to win the game. “It was disappointing to be ahead 3-1 and to lose, but it’s a long season,” IUP Head Coach Adel Heder said.
