Tars advance to SSC semifinals The men’s tennis team won against Florida Southern but lost to Barry University on April 20. They will now fight for the SSC’s third place title. Ellie Rushing
The perseverance and strength the Tars demonstrated last week earned them a spot in the next round of the Sunshine State Conference tournament. Fourth-seeded Rollins defeated Florida Southern, ranked number five at the time, in an epic comeback, marking it the second time in the past week that the Tars overpowered the Mocs. With the win, #28 Rollins improves to 11-9 on the year, and advance to the SSC Tournament Semifinals. The Mocs end their year ranked #38 nationally, with a 1011 overall record. The meeting started in favor of Florida Southern, who stole the first two doubles wins; however, Francesco Racanelli ’19 and Ziad Melhaoui ‘19 made sure Rollins avoided a loss, defeating Southern’s Blaine Miller and Jose de Sario, 8-5, in the third spot. From there, the Mocs also
won the first singles match, pursuing a 3-1 lead. But, Sami Kirberg ’20 and Patrick Sell ’17 won back-to-back, putting the Tars back on the board. The score remained tied at 3-3, and it looked in favor of the Mocs before Rollins’ Cody Gubin ’19 recovered from an epic set back. Losing the first round 2-6, Gubin ultimately finished the last two 6-1, 6-4, proving his ability to remain concentrated and mentally strong. Florida Southern continued to fight. They won the next match, tying the score for the second time at 4-4. However, their good luck could only get them so far. Daniel Fore ’19 ended up pulling through for the Tars in the end with a win in the fifth position. The Landsberg, Germany native fought long and hard and overcame a first set loss to win the series 3-6, 6-2, 7-5. Rollins’ ability to overcome initial deficit earned them a spot in the next round of the tourna-
ment, facing top-seeded Barry University. Unfortunately, the Tars were unable to overcome the top-seeded team and were defeated 6-0. Barry improved 20-1 on the season. Although the Tars did not clinch the SSC title, they will have to turn around and prepare for another highly ranked opponent in the SSC Tournament third place game. Rollins will take on the loser of the matchup between second-seeded Saint Leo and third seeded Lynn. The Lions are 12-3 on the year and ranked third in the country, while the Fighting Knights are 18-4 and sit at #8. Rollins looks to clinch a spot in the NCAA Division II Men’s Tennis Selection Show, set to air on Tuesday, April 25. If Rollins is not chosen to continue with their season, it will be the end of the road for two seniors, Patrick Sell ‘17 and Anton Bettink ‘17.

As given away by the orange construction tape scattered about Mills Law, Rollins College is undergoing some major renovations. In addition to the work being done on Mills and the Alfond Sports Complex, Rollins is also in the beginning stages of building a brand new structure for the Child Development and Student Research Center, or CDC. According to Vice President for Business and Finance and Treasurer Jeff Eisenbarth, “Mills is receiving a much-needed new roof, new windows and new paint. It has been 50 years and all of these items are required
maintenance to maintain the integrity of the building.” As for the Alfond Sports Complex, it is simply receiving a new paint job. Students have been concerned about the impact the construction might have on their ability to get to class, but Eisenbarth assures that it will benefit everyone in the long run. “The impact on the students continues to be to provide facilities that meet the needs of the students and maintaining the integrity and investment in existing facilities,” he said. Finances should not be an issue for the construction. “The work is being paid for by the annual capital funding that is part of the annual operat-

ing budget,” said Eisenbarth. Rollins is currently completing all of the on campus construction in accordance with the Campus Master Plan and fiveyear facility. “They look forward five years and identify the required maintenance, renovations and renewal of campus facilities,” said Eisenbarth. An even larger project will soon be underway on campus. Rollins is in the process of tearing down the College Arms building, located diagonally across the street from Strong Hall, in order to construct a brand new 5,050 SF building that will house the Child Development and Student Research Center. “The CDC is an academic program of the College and has been operating with insufficient facilities for quite a long time. We received gifts to build a new CDC,” said Eisenbarth. According to City Manager of Winter Park Randy Knight, the college was given the green light on the CDC project once they received a conditional use approval from the city which passed 5-0. Though this is one of the biggest upcoming projects, the campus will see many other renovations. Eisenbarth said, “Additional upcoming projects include a new bookstore, new campus event pavilion, Holt Hall interior renovation, Alfond Boathouse renovation, Sutton Place upgrades, McKean Hall renovations, Cornell Social Sciences interior HVAC improvements...and baseball stadium improvements, to mention a few.” In regards to the property that Rollins recently bought next to the Orlando Avenue Walgreens, the City of Winter Park will be purchasing it. “The college intends to sell that property to the City of Winter Park who will, in turn, use the land to expand MLK Park,” said President Grant Cornwell. Looking forward, Cornwell commented, “This summer we will continue to renovate residence halls on the schedule that has been established.”

New English faculty welcomed with reading Farewell Doc Beloved post office supervisor Galen Department welcomed four new faculty The English ‘Doc’ Gallup says his farewell to the last week with a reading of their selected members Rollins communtiy after ten works. years of service. global society into a humorous was Kristen Winet, professor and Sianna Boschetti
Rollins’ beloved Galen “Doc” Gallup, supervisor of the campus post office, will be retiring from his position at the end of this month. He will be moving to northern California to help with forest fire relief efforts. “It seems that every 10 years, there’s a decade of change, where life leads you in a different direction,” Gallup says. “This is one of those times.” Though he will miss Rollins, Gallup said he looks forward to his next adventure. “[Working in the post office is] a pretty steady nine-to-five job where you kind of know what every day is going to be like,” he said. “But it’s going to be nice to have a change where there will be a lot more variety in the new job than this one.” Gallup is known for his comical character, giving advice, and, above all, his ability to make mail fun. His charisma expands beyond work; he lets his spirited personality shine in and out of the office. “[My wife] accuses me of being her oldest child at times,” he said. “I’m not like this just at work. This is a lifestyle. This is a choice. You put on your happy pants every morning, whether you’re going to work or you’re going out in the yard to work, or you’re going to California. You’ve got to put on your good pants every morning.” He stressed the importance of wearing those happy pants, of making the most out of every sit-

and compelling memoir. Next came Professor Matt Forsythe, who sported a black T-shirt spelling out OHIO using iconic Star Wars items. He affectionately explained his attire by saying his works were essentially “a love song to Ohio.” Though he has been lecturing at Rollins for some time, this is his first official year working toward tenure. Forsythe was the first and only to publicly acknowledge his nervousness before reading, saying he wanted his students in the audience to see that it is good to do things that seem scary. He shared two pieces, the first entitled “On Silos: a Q and A.” Published in literary journal The Pinch, the piece humorously weaves a tale of a teenager climbing the side of a silo and falling to his demise. True to the title, it is done in question-and-answer fashion, with an invisible and mute questioner for the narrator to refute. The audience responded well to this unorthodox essay; bursts of laughter could be heard throughout the piece. His second work also imbues humor as the narrator describes the gigantic Jesus Christ statue in Ohio before and after it was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. The third reader of the night
new Director of First-Year and Academic Writing. She acknowledged her past work in travel writing with a new travel piece she had “just been working on this morning,” “Walking Budapest.” It was told in seven parts chronicling her and her husband’s several-day river cruise and encourages thought on one’s physical ability to travel. She was inspired by the older men and women with physical disabilities either from old age or other conditions who continued to voyage, specifically one man who was often denied access to places because he wore a brace, but enjoyed the cruise all the same. The last speaker was Ryan Winet, Kristen’s husband and fellow professor. He has illustrated a graphic novel and is an editor for an online poetry journal. In an interesting change of pace, Winet brought his artistic and poetic sides together to present a series of poems on each tarot card of a futuristic fortune-telling machine that has grown arms and legs and become sentient. The poems ranged in length based on the card they were inspired by, yet carried the same amount of intrigue for the audience. The two dozen spectators held onto every word presented and were not afraid to express their enjoyment of the pieces to the new faculty members after the reading. When asked what she thought of the event, Karlissa Keller ’18 said, “I enjoyed the different styles of the different authors. There were quirky, funny, relatable, and travel…. I might be a tad biased but I liked Professor Brown’s the best for her close-tohome depictions of allergies and travel, especially when mixed. Also, top-notch was Forsythe’s silo piece for his ingeniously engaging interrupted style.” Now that they have been welcomed by their fellow faculty, students, and the community, the four new professors embark on their budding Rollins careers.
The impact of Native American appropriation Jojo Peloquin
In honor of it being Native American Heritage month, Rollins Center for Inclusion and Involvement decided to bring Dr. Adrienne Keene from Brown University to speak about Native American appropriation. The CICI was able to request Dr. Keene to speak at Rollins a year in advance, so this was a premeditated and highly anticipated information session. Adrienne Keene is a citizen of the Cherokee Tribe, and originally resided in California. She is mostly known for her Native American Appropriation blog she started while she was attending Harvard for her graduate studies. The idea for a cultural appropriation blog was triggered when she walked into an Urban Outfitters and noticed many items that were labeled as Navajo. Dr. Keene and many others argue that because clothing labels sell items labeled as authentic Native American products, it is damaging to the identities of Natives. In America, there is a long history of whites stripping away Native American identities, and when the new colonizers of the United States snatched the land from Natives, they also decided to ban many different defining features of Native life, such as long hair, sacred clothing, and language. It was not until the 1970s that Native American culture was even somewhat tolerated as a result of protests demanding fair treatment from the government. Then, in 1978, Native Americans officially received religious freedom. Dr. Keene explained that appropriation of closely-held religious symbols is damaging to Native American identity because of their past oppression. When the clothing, jewelry, and headdresses are easily accessible to those that do not understand their culture or past, it denounces their sacred nature.
Adrienne Keene noted that appropriators do not struggle in the same way that the oppressed do. Often times appropriators are not fully educated on the lives of Native Americans, but when one decides to research Native Americans, narratives that arise have been whitewashed or are else outdated. Inaccurate representations of Native Americans only perpetuate more stereotypes leading to more mistreatment and oppression; for example, when looking through older pictures of Native tribes, many of the males are wearing headdresses, so it may seem to an outsider as a common token among a tribe. In reality, the headdress is a sacred piece that has to be earned, so not everyone has access to it. Culturally treasured items such as the headdress must be respected by outsiders and insiders alike. Dr. Keene made it clear that these stereotypes brought on by the costumes and media only makes appropriators feel better about subjugating others. Thinking of Native Americans solely in the past tense justifies—to some people—inaccurate stereotypes. Dr. Keene related this to the North Dakota Pipeline protest; a sheriff reported that some of the Indians were shooting arrows at the helicopters flying above— this is a completely ridiculous fabrication because much of the hunting done today is accomplished with rifles. It is stereotypes like these that ignite fear into outsiders so much so that they rationalize meeting peaceful protesters trying to preserve their water source with violence. Dr. Keene and others like her are in search for corrective measures and peace. Their goals are for everyone to be knowledgeable of Native American people today—to see them as people and nothing less. Dr. Keene believes it starts with taking down Native American appropriation and educating the rest of the country.

n order to help Puerto Rican college students displaced by the damage caused by Hurricane Irma and Maria, Rollins College is joining in a statewide initiative to accept Puerto Rican transfer students at the cost of in-state tuition. On September 26, Governor Rick Scott asked Florida colleges and universities to allow Puerto Rican college students to be offered in-state tuition. All members of the Florida College System and Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida, including Rollins College, have agreed to Scott’s request in order to stand in support with Puerto
Rico. As such, Rollins will be welcoming Puerto Rican and Caribbean transfer students in the spring semester at a discounted rate of $8,500. This flat fee,

equivalent to the standard cost of attendance at a Florida state university, will cover tuition and room and board. According to Rollins’ Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Management and Director of Financial Aid Steve Booker, these students “will not receive a Rollins degree and will not receive Rollins financial aid.” Booker also conveyed that these students will only take classes “that are transferrable to their home institution […] in order to stay on track.” However, if students enrolled in the 2018 Spring semester demonstrate satisfactory academic performance, they may continue their education at Rollins for the standard cost of attendance and may qualify for financial aid from Rollins at that time.

Accounts from Coach Michelle Frew and data from the Winter Park Police Department prove vehicle break-ins have been a historical problem at the Rollins softball stadium.
embers of the Rollins softball team and community have consistently fallen victim to vehicle break-ins since the team started practicing
and playing at Martin Luther King Jr. Park in 2004. The Winter Park Police Department (WPPD) said 17 incidents of criminal activity have been reported in the parking lot over a five-year span. On Oct. 7, two players had their cars broken into while
practicing. Jordan Davis ‘19 and Whitey Foyer ‘20, two transfer additions to the softball program, walked out to their car to find the window completely
smashed in, with Foyer’s phone and wallet missing. They reported the incident to the WPPD and Campus Safety. This incident
was deemed just one example of a recurring problem at this location. The details of the incident were outlined in the WPPD’s police report. Davis’s car suffered a smashed window valued at $300. Foyer’s iPhone 7, wallet, and wallet contents were stolen
from the front seat of her car, with the total value coming out to $650. Contents included her driver’s license, school ID, and debit card.
