in the seventh inning from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi pitcher Phillip Garcia on Saturday, Choice sent a towering, 2-run home run over the scoreboard in right-center field of Chapman Field to set the UTA career home run record with 32. “When I first hit it, I was just in relief to get a hit,” Choice said. “I didn’t think about the fact it was the one to break the record until once I rounded first base. That’s when I realized it. Off the bat, it just felt good to make that solid contact.” CHoiCe continues on page 4

University hires consulting firm to assess space efficiency It will look at how rooms for classes are used and how many seats are filled. By moniCa s. nagy The Shorthorn staff

Kyle Nesrsta was in 301 Fine Arts Building last week while most of his peers were asleep at home. The music media senior said the only time he could procure a session at the recording studio was from midnight to 6 a.m. Nesrsta said he feels this is a result of limited space in the music department and because there is only one recording studio. “I would love to see us get more rooms,” he said.

With rapid growth at UTA and the push for Tier One status, the university recently hired external consulting firm Paulien & Associates, Inc. to analyze the way UTA utilizes class space efficiency. The university has never hired out an external consulting firm before, said Dale Wasson, senior associate vice president of student enrollment services and special assistant to the president. Wasson said while there is currently not a problem with class space, the university wants to take all the preventative measures it can for the future. Provost Donald Bobbitt said this is an effort to better serve the students.

“This has a lot of ramifications” he said. “It could open up more seats for students and certainly will let us keep costs down.” Bobbitt also said the state tracks classroom utilization statistics, and if the university fails to meet standards, UTA will not qualify for additional funding for buildings. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board website said there are three measures used to identify space need and use consisting of facilities demand, current utilization rate and percent fill.

Seniors say ‘goodbye’ with art exhibition gives 79 students the chance to display their artwork. By HannaH doCkray The Shorthorn staff

Undergraduate art seniors got a chance to showcase their careers’ work at The Gallery at UTA. The Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition opened Monday in the Fine Arts Building north section with artwork from 79 different students majoring in Fine Arts. The artwork ranges from design portfolio displays to modern, interpretive pieces. Canvases in all sizes adorn the walls while a television plays an artistic film developed by several students.

The university will submit two files to Paulien & Associates, Inc. one consisting of the fall class schedule, what was taught and when, and the other will be over space inventory, how many classrooms were used. “This kind of project isn’t a switch you flip on or off in terms of results,” he said.

at the Plaza de Americas, discussing the march with each other and coordinating volunteership. DREAM Act advocates later joined the main march line that started in front of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and stretched all the way back to the intersection of Ross Avenue and Leonard Street. Marchers blew horns, banged on drums and shouted “Si se puede” or “Yes we can” and “U–S–A.” Despite heat from the afternoon sun, immigration reform advocates of all colors and ages marched a mile to the Dallas City Hall. Counter protestors stood on sidewalks holding up signs that read, “Illegal is a crime, not a race,” “I love Arizona Immigration reform,” and “Not a Racist, A Realist.” Cassie Davis said she and fellow counter protestors are for immigration, when it’s achieved legally. Davis said bills like the DREAM Act “cheapen our citizenship.” Susan Chapman, another counter protestor, said though it pains her to hear of undocumented children who live in fear of deportation, it was wrong for their parents to bring them to the U.S. Two wrongs don’t make a right, she said. “We are not teaching anybody personal responsibility,” Chapman said. UTA alumnus Larry McLaughlin said he is in favor of SB 1070. “It’s a shame a state has to pass a law to make a crime, a crime,” he said. “It’s not about race, it’s about the law.” Signs stating, “We built your home.

what she believes in — setting high goals and achieving them. “She’d probably be embarrassed by the fuss but proud to see the artifacts put to good use,” he said. The memorial is located in the southwest corner of the Nedderman Hall atrium and is open to everyone. Carroll said Nedderman Hall was the best place for the display after considering other engineering buildings. “We wanted somewhere that both students and visitors could see the display,” he said. Carroll said the new Engineering Research Building and Woolf Hall were considered for the display, but Nedderman Hall’s accessibility was the deciding factor. Construction on the Engineering Research Building is still incomplete, and Woolf Hall lacks a large common area, Carroll said. In addition to the photos, flight suit and flag, the display also has two signs containing biographical information about Chawla. Carroll said benches will be installed once the college finds the ones they want. Spaniolo told the audience, which packed the Nedderman Hall atrium, that Chawla had pictures of space shuttles adorning the walls of her dorm room when she attended UTA. He called the decorations “fitting.” “She was, and still is, a role model for men and women, especially women,” he said, highlighting the importance of a prominent female role model in a field dominated by males. Wendell Nedderman, who served as UTA’s president for 20 years including the two that Chawla attended, said she was one of the nicest people he had ever met. “I think this is a fabulous memorial,” he said. “I’m absolutely excited about seeing it in Nedderman Hall.” Dominic Gorie, NASA astronaut and retired U.S. Navy captain, attended flight school with Chawla and said she picked up on systems much faster than average astronauts. He said she was never flustered, even in stressful situations. “It didn’t matter what she was doing, she was calm and a pleasure to be with,” he said, holding back tears. “She was enamored with a never-ending quest to learn.”

Decisive game elevates Mavs The team scored 41 runs in 3 games, head coach gets 50th conference victory. By sam morTon The Shorthorn staff

From getting head coach Darin Thomas his 50th conference victory to blasting its way up the Southland Conference standings, everything went right for the baseball team this weekend. The Mavericks pounded out 41 runs in three games to blow past the Texas A&MCorpus Christi Islanders this weekend, taking sole possession of third place in the conference standings. The Mavericks have now won eight straight conference games, making them the hottest team in the Southland Conference heading into next weekend’s showdown with the second place Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks at Clay Gould Ballpark. Senior pitcher Jason Mitchell and junior pitcher

Rett Varner threw complete games on Friday and Saturday, and junior pitcher Logan Bawcom went seven strong in Sunday’s 19-4 run-rule rout. “It all starts with pitching in conference play,” Thomas said. “We have been getting some quality starts out of all our pitchers lately.” Mitchell surrendered seven runs in the first five innings on Friday, but shut the Islanders out the rest of the way, allowing the team to come back from the 7-3 deficit. He struck out 10 batters to raise his season total to 93. Junior shortstop Jesse payne was a catalyst for the comeback, leading off the sixth inning with a first-pitch homer to rightfield and delivering an RBI single in the seventh. Sophomore first baseman Jordan Vaughn, who became the first Maverick since 2006 to have five hits in a game on Friday night, drove the goahead, two-run single up the middle to put the Mavericks

She gave up three earned runs on seven hits and striking out only two. In the bottom of the third inning, Lyles gave up three runs on four hits. She was finally able to produce an inning ending double play to stop the bleeding for the Mavs. However, at this point, the Mavs were down 4-1 and unable to come back.

Game one Freshman pitcher Teri Lyles gave up three runs early in the game but was dominant throughout. Her biggest test came in the bottom of the seventh inning. As the Mavs held a 5-3 lead, Lyles gave up a hit and issued two walks to have the bases loaded. With only one out, Lyles was able to get two batters to fly out to right field to the end the game. The Mavs won 5-3.

Choice continued from page 1

The home run, his 14th of the season, sent Choice into the UTA record books by surpassing Matt Mize, who hit 31 home runs in his two seasons as a Maverick from 1998-1999. “There isn’t an individual home run of Mike’s that sticks out in my mind,” Thomas said. “probably just the ones that he hit with two strikes, or the ones where he has a good, short approach and the pitcher makes a good pitch and he still hits it out of the yard.” He said the most impressive thing about the home runs is that he is such a patient hitter. “He is not an all-ornothing hitter, and his bat-

ting average proves that,” he said. Nine of his home runs came with two strikes, a time when hitters primarily protect the plate instead of swinging for the fences. His .397/.501/.645 slash line, 150 RBIs and now 32 home runs give Choice a pretty strong argument as the greatest hitter in UTA history. But Choice is no ordinary hitter, and never has been since he stepped onto campus in 2008 out of Mansfield Timberview High School. Choice signed with UTA early in his senior year because he wanted to just go somewhere and play. He got offers from UT-Austin and Oklahoma University after he signed but stuck to his commitment to being a Maverick.

“I think a lot of people think it just comes easy for Mike and that he is just really good,” junior catcher Chad Comer said. “He is a very naturally gifted athlete, but Mike has worked his butt off every day since he got here as a freshman. I’m really happy for him to have broken that record.” Junior pitcher Rett Varner, who was drafted in the 34th round by the Chicago Cubs last season, summed up the consensus feeling among the other Mavericks in the clubhouse about having Choice in the lineup. “He can catch anything that is hit or he can change the game in one swing,” he said. “I wish I could always have him on my team.”

Women’s BaskeTBall

Mavs lose 3 seniors, gain 3 freshmen The three new players replace Meghan Nelson, Kiarra Shofner and LaTosha Duffey. By Travis DeTherage The Shorthorn senior staff

The women’s basketball team will try to reload after losing one of its top scorers in the Southland Conference by bringing in some new faces. Senior guard Meghan Nelson played her last game in a Mavericks uniform, finishing third in the SLC scoring with 18.3 points per game. Two other senior guards, Kiarra Shofner and LaTosha Duffey, also depart. To counter those departures, head coach Samantha

Morrow will be bringing in one of the top scorers in Texas and two guards to make up for their absence. Over the weekend, the Mavericks women’s basketball team received letters of intent from guards Briana Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and forward Jasmine Smith. Head coach Samantha Morrow said the girls will help the team all-around. “These three girls are going to come in and fill in some needs that we need to improve in,” Morrow said. “We feel like they will improve the makeup of our team.” Rodriguez ended her senior season by guiding Karen Wagner High School

Walker was also first team all-district honoree and was named offensive player of the year. Those players will join up with guard Malaika Green and forwards Chevan Goins and Desherra Nwanguama to join the 2010 recruiting class. Travis DeTherage

Film/video senior Tiffany Spencer checks the shot on a location shoot for the narrative film/video class. The class accepts about 30 students and teaches them all the right steps to make a movie in a professional setting.

Good. Fast.

Who Does What? Each student in the narrative film class has an important job in putting together a final product. Look to this list to learn about the jobs and what those positions entail in creating a movie. Producer The producer oversees everything. A good producer is looking all the way down the conveyer belt and not at what is right in front of them. — Patty Newton Director The director facilitates and executes the collaborative vision of the film. — Nicholas Cormier III Unit Production Manager (UPM) They deal with the business side of the film and budgets. They make sure all the logs are getting done and are also the spokesperson of the producer. — Corrie Slater Coordinator The UPM’s right hand man. They make sure everyone does their job. They have to prepare what is being shot the next day and make sure everyone gets the information about call times and locations for the next day among other things. — Haley Hinshaw First Assistant Director The First A.D. runs the set. They make sure the director gets to spend time with the actors. They’re in charge, as far as organizing them, answering questions and telling them what to do next. — Patrick McKinley Being a first A.D. is having to be a complete jerk and make the crew feel OK about it. — Jeff Walker Second Assistant Director Second A.D. is something that does a lot of production paperwork, assisting the A.D. to lighten his or her workload. The actors are also a priority. — Kaitlin Scott Director of Photography They are in charge of the camera and the look of the film and set up the frame. They sit with the director, draw up storyboards and decide what lighting setups are needed or wanted. — Vlad Alexander First Camera Assistant They are in charge of servicing the camera. They also assist the camera operator, loading the film, changing the lens and racking focus among other things. — Vlad Alexander Second Unit Camera Operator They operate the camera to shoot pickups and other things not covered by the primary crew. — John Gomez.

Key Grip The person in charge of the grips. They put lights up and get electricity to them. — John Gomez. Best Boy They are a kind of gopher for the camera. They set up lights and all the equipment that is needed besides the camera. — Jeff Badyna. Grip They deal with all the equipment. Grips are always on set. Always ready. — Reema Patel. Sound Mixer They are in charge of setting up anything related to audio and making sure it was the best quality possible. — Alex Fuerst Production Designer They work on the look of the film as a whole. They are responsible for how everything looks and comes together on camera. — Chris Crowell Boom Operator They try to catch the arc of the sound waves involved in the scene. They try to catch the best sound. — Arturo Lopez Jr. Slate The slate is important because of how editors sync up the sound. You see it clap. You hear it clap. — Corrie Slater Continuity They watch every shot and make it the exact same as the last take, anything from props to gestures. — Pasia Torres Art Department Production Assistant Anything seen on screen that isn’t a prop, they build. — Keegan Arnold Wardrobe They have to choose the right outfits for the actors that are right for the characters. – Vanessa Sanchez Set Decorator They choose what to put on the set to make it look well. — Alfred Ramirez Documentary They run around with a camera, capturing behind-thescenes shots of the making of these films. — Alex Fuerst.
