Mountaineers rally at the San Antonio Rampage Schreiner Night

This past Friday, the Reveille editors got the opportunity to ask your pointed questions about the mold situation in Weir in a lengthy phone interview with Bill Muse, Schreiner’s vice president for administration and finances. “We all want to try to be objective and careful,” Muse said, “we want to take appropriate action with fact and not with rumor.” When approached with the concern that Weir was home to harmful mold, the administration quickly responded with a campuswide email on November 5 detailing the measures already taken to test the rumors. For a week, Schreiner hired members from the Industrial Hygiene and Environmental Safety team in San Antonio to take samples in five classrooms on the middle floor of Weir.

Only two rooms had what was deemed a “higher than desirable level” of mold spores. Additionally, the mold was “ubiquitous,” or airborne material from the outside environment. No evidence of black mold or toxic mold was found in any of the tested rooms. That said, some with weakened immune systems or special allergies could be more affected than other by the

Classes in rooms W101 and W109 have been relocated until at least November 7.

ulse racing. Stomach churning. Breath shortening. Hands shaking. Sweating intensely. Dizziness. These are some of the signs of having an anxiety attack, and it’s a scary situation to be in. Anxiety can happen constantly, rarely, or even just once in a lifetime. If it is dealt with on a daily basis, there are many different methods to control it and prevent it from happening. For certain people, anxiety is serious mental illness and a disorder that is overwhelming and possibly detrimental. On the bright

side, this is a very common disorder that has affected countless people, men and women alike. But if there is a time that anxiety cannot be prevented, there are some helpful tips to deal with it. Kelli Krueger, a University of Texas at San Antonio grad student in counseling and an intern at Schreiner University, says, “Common triggers [for anxiety] could be pressure to get good grades, lifestyle changes, and relational problems.” For many individuals, the common factors include death of a loved one, starting out at a new school

or job, or even having a baby. According to WebMD. com, sources of anxiety can also be mental or hereditary. For triggering certain mental disorders, a traumatic event can make anxiety prevalent in someone’s life. When anxiousness and depression happen on a daily basis, they can lead to problems like obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Krueger gives her expertise on anxiety signs to look out for: “Signs of an anxiety attack include

feeling disconnected from your surroundings, feeling as though you are losing control, racing thoughts, cold sweats, an overwhelming sense of fear, and tightening of the chest.” Even though some people might have the same symptoms of anxiety, keep in mind that these might be signs for another type of medical or psychological disorder. It is extremely important to have your doctor administer a full examination to determine if your symptoms are stressrelated or if they indicate a different type of disorder.

Seeking help from a doctor, counselor, and loved ones gives the body and mind feelings of support, which reduces their stress level. Krueger suggestes that “keeping track of when you tend to get stressed or anxious throughout the week can help by creating awareness of what things trigger your stress/anxiety, and then you can focus on coping with those triggers.” In the end, the key to keeping anxiety under control is to have a positive attitude. Try to stay relaxed, and breathe during any type of stressful situation.

hould Schreiner University reconsider its current pet policy? In early September, several students shared their thoughts regarding the school’s restrictive pet policy, which prevents them from having any animals besides a single fish in a tank. Many students have expressed their frustration that they cannot have pets while living on campus, especially because the school forces students to live in the dormitories unless they are married, have children, have over 90 credit hours, are at least 23 years of age, or live with their parents. However, there are also students who support Schreiner’s current policy due to concerns about property damage, noise issues, or

Ask Me Anything Story by: Nate Aubin

Have you ever wondered what it's like to practice a different religion? To walk a mile in a Buddhist's shoes or be Pagan for a day? Now, Schreiner University students can learn about other faiths firsthand. On October 15, Campus Ministry started a new program called “Ask Me Anything.” In each weekly session, a practitioner of a particular religion takes the floor and explains the rituals, traditions, and beliefs of his or her faith. Questions are encouraged from the audience. After the speaker finishes, there's time for meaningful conversation for everyone in attendance. Gini Norris-Lane, Schreiner University's campus minister, seeks to foster a positive, open environment for people to share their stories. “We often hear about things,” she said. “But we don't often have the opportunity to be curious and ask questions.” The Rev. Norris-Lane's overall hope for the Ask Me Anything program is that it creates a safe forum for people to discuss their beliefs. “I do think it's new and different,” she said. “In our

culture, we very rarely sit down with people who are different than us.” According to the Rev. Norris-Lane, the program is off to a good start. A small, but consistent, group of students has attended the first two meetings, and the sessions have been well received so far. “The conversations have been really thoughtful,” she said “and there's been a great exchange from the people who've come.” Arwen Moczygemba, a member of the interfaith community, also approves of the new program and recognizes that while the university is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church, Schreiner is an ideal environment to facilitate religious discussion. “It's pretty diverse and open-minded,” she said. “I think the ‘Ask Me Anything’ is a good idea.” While Moczygemba recognizes the potential for conflict, she believes that the best way to benefit the interfaith community is to openly converse about varying beliefs. “How are people going to learn if we don't discuss?” she said. Evan Klaff, one of

Schreiner University's Jewish Students, recently spoke at the program. “I think it went really well,” he said. “Another student and I simply just explained our backstory and our form of Judaism.” Klaff noted that while the school is predominantly Christian, he feels that Schreiner is welcoming to minority religions. He believes that these sessions will strengthen the interfaith community by demystifying less-dominant faith groups’ beliefs. “Anything that's not a form of Christianity is very much a minority at Schreiner,” he said, “but for the most part, this school has been very accepting, just unknowledgeable...which is why this whole thing exists.” So far, the program has discussed Buddhism and Judaism, and future talks will feature Paganism, Christianity, Atheism, and Islam. Sessions are held every Wednesday at the campus ministry house at noon and typically last 45 minutes. Drinks and desserts are provided. Any interested in learning about other faiths are encouraged to attend with questions.

This October, Schreiner held its first Diwali celebration. Diwali is known as the festival of a thousand lights in India and deserves such a name as worldwide thousands of tea lights are lit and typically arranged in a pattern or an image. Along with lights, Schreiner students celebrated with Rangoli, henna, dancing, and authentic Indian sweets.

The Reveille - November 2014

The Game is Afoot Story and Photo by: Chase Smith

From November 1 to January 18, Schreiner students will be among the hundreds of residents pursuing whitetail deer this hunting season. Many Schreiner students enjoy hunting, and a walk around campus will reveal a large number of them sporting camouflage and various articles of hunting clothing. Hunting is a controversial sport, and many are strongly against it. However, it has a noble side that is not often portrayed in the media. Schreiner students have a wide variety of reasons for hunting. For Schreiner transfer student Caleb Schmerbeck, hunting provides more than just an adrenaline rush. “Hunting gives me good times with friends and family and just brings people together,” said Schmerbeck. For Schreiner sophomore Wendy Andersen, hunting provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. “When I'm hunting I can clear my head and it seems like all my stress just kind of disappears,” said Andersen. Hunting also creates memories that will last a lifetime. Andersen fondly recalls her first successful hunt. She was nervous at first, but after she took the shot (an impressive one at 350 yards) she knew that it had been well-placed. “I was so happy that I was going to provide some good

venison for my family,” said Andersen. Good times abound in the woods, and sophomore TJ McGill is no stranger to enjoying a hunt with his father. “A successful hunt feels like an accomplishment,” said McGill. McGill recounted the humorous story of a squirrel hunt in East Texas with his father and sister years ago. “We weren’t old enough to hold the gun yet, so my father held it,” said McGill. Nevertheless, he and his sister ventured into the woods and treed a squirrel. His father made a clean shot and dispatched their quarry. “The squirrel fell out of the tree and straight onto my sister’s head,” said McGill. “She ran all the way back to the house.” Hunters are the largest contributors to the environment in Texas. Most of the fees from licenses and tags go towards maintaining native parks wildlife. According to the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, hunting has a huge positive impact on both the economy and the environment—with an effect in the millions of dollars. There are several programs that hunters can use to make sure that the meat that they harvest goes

to good use. One of the most prominent of these is “Hunters for the Hungry,” a Texas program which has donated over 10 million servings to the hungry in Texas. When properly done, hunting is a thrilling and rewarding sport. For Schreiner students, it is an opportunity to make memories and to enjoy the company of friends and family—not to mention enjoying the tasty venison acquired in the process.

However, some students like Kayla Lamartina, a freshman, believe that all pets should be permitted on campus because of the emotional support that they provide. “I feel like this is a really transitional phase of our lives and I think that pets, for a lot of people, offer comfort and that companionship that a lot of people lack at a new place,” said Lamartina. Other students, like Colter Dieringer, a sophomore, have concerns that caring for a pet may be too much responsibility for fulltime students.

“I’m kind of torn, because I think you should have pets to keep you company during the transition to adulthood, but at the same time, it’s kind of a pain because that’s a lot of extra responsibility, cost and time. If you get invited to go do something over a weekend, who’s going to watch your pets?” said Dieringer. Carleigh Hammond is among the few residents at Schreiner University who are permitted to have a pet. She is currently training her dog, Ellie, to be a therapy and service dog. “I definitely understand Schreiner’s

This compost could be used to help cultivate an on-campus garden that would provide fresh vegetables and fruit. The food waste problem won’t be solved overnight. We need to realize the significance of eating half of what’s on our plate and throwing the rest in the trash. Once we have, steps can be taken by everyone to help reduce waste. All of these simple actions can go a long way towards Schreiner achieving its goals with Project Clean Plate.
