Scholarship application comes back online Application can be used to sign up for almost 1,000 MSU scholarships By Rose Marthis The Standard


Project will donate 10,623 pairs of shoes, 32,000 meals to those in need


By Sadie Welhoff The Standard

One person drove by the trailer, asked what it was for, gave them the shoes on his feet and drove away in his socks.

tomp Out Hunger is over for Springfield, but every pair of the collected shoes will soon end up on someone’s feet in other parts of the globe. MSU, along with OTC, Drury University, Evangel University and Southwest Baptist University, came up with a final total of 10,623 pairs of shoes. Mary Ann Wood, director of public affairs support, said out of the final amount, they had to throw away very few shoes because they were not wearable. The number was not able to beat the Guinness World Record for the longest string of shoes that Shoeman Water Projects set at 12,481 pairs. All the shoes will be donated to Sole Food, which partners with Friends Against Hunger. The shoes will then be sold to Shoeman Water Projects and the profits will go back to Sole Food and Friends Against Hunger. The profits will be used by Friends Against Hunger to donate meals to the hungry in Springfield. According to Lora Hobbs, Sole Food volunteer and religious studies senior instructor, the shoes from the drive will provide around 32,000 meals. The T-shirt sales from 5 Pound Apparel will also provide around 9,000 meals. Even though the record was not broken, Wood said she was impressed with the final number and said she was pleased with the variety of student and faculty involvement. u See STOMP, page 2

High school students get some private practice in ‘Nurse for a Day’ program

Students have the opportunity to experience the MSU nursing department firsthand By Trevor Mitchell The Standard

Madeline Carter/THE STANDARD Students practice using a stethoscope at MSU’s Nurse for a Day program.

The fourth needle that pierced the arm resting on the table took a while to properly inject its contents into a vein, but there were no complaints. It might have been different if the arm had been attached to anyone. This wasn’t a scene from Saw XXVI; just Friday morning at Missouri State University’s Nurse for a Day program, which is aimed at high school students interested in the nursing field.

The arm, which, thankfully, was not a real human limb, was one of several hands-on activities that allowed students to experience MSU’s Nursing Simulation Center. Students practiced tying a tourniquet, using stethoscopes and blood pressure cuffs and got to take a look at some of the medical mannequins that MSU uses to train nurses. They also toured the campus and had a question-and-answer session with a panel of local u See NURSE, page 2

Missouri State students can start applying now for the chance to have free money for next fall. The Missouri State University Foundation launched the General and Departmental Scholarship Application on Nov. 1. This single application is for all of the donor-funded scholarships available, which is roughly 1,000, according to Andrew Garton, the foundation scholarship coordinator. The application’s deadline is March 1, and Garton says students should start early and take as much time as they need to give them the best chance to be selected for a scholarship. “Committees really look for students who have put a lot of thought and effort into essay answers,” he said. “The faculty know when they’ve done it last minute.” Garton suggested students take the time on Thanksgiving and Winter breaks, since there are no classes. Because it is for so many scholarships, the application is around 20 pages long, but it is divided into three sections based on class type: graduate students, undergraduate students and incoming freshmen. Students will choose which section classifies them for the 2014-2015 academic year and only fill out that part of the application. The application is further divided based on individual scholarships’ qualifications, such as the student being a particular major or from a particular city. Students can read about these qualifications on parts of the application like essay directions, and then they don’t have to fill out that part if it doesn’t apply to them. Garton says that the time investment is worth it, and that students have a “fairly good chance,” because one out of every four applicants is selected. The average amount of scholarships awarded is $1,100, but there are a lot of scholarships for half and full tuition, and a few are for $10,000 and $15,000. This amount is typically divided in half between the fall and spring semesters. The foundation awards 1,100 to 1,200 scholarships every year, valuing between $1.25 million and $1.3 million. This value fluctuates because the scholarships are invested in the market, so that determines the amount available every year. The selection committees start reviewing applications on March 2. Most students are notified through their Missouri State email by the end of the spring semester if they are selected. If the selection committee falls behind, the student might not be notified until summer. The scholarships are awarded before the deadline for taking out student loans. Garton said that this makes them more valuable than just their face value dollar amount, because it is saving students even more money in the long run. Students who are selected are also required to write a thank you letter to the donor who funded the scholarship and often get a chance to meet the donor. Garton said this provides great networking opportunities with “people who are dedicated u See APPLY, page 2

nurses to round out the day’s activities. Louise Bigley, an instructor assisting with the program, said that she thought the program was extremely important for the students, due to the exposure they get to educational nursing settings and the university’s nursing department. Bigley also said that she didn’t have any opportunities like this when she was a student, although she would have loved the chance to.

“It couldn’t have been done without a lot of people’s help and participation,” Wood said. Wood said the beginning of the drive started out slow, and it was hard to predict what kind of turnout they would have. With such a large campus, Wood said the word about events can seem sluggish with so many other causes for students to hear about.

She said some people walked by the trailer where the shoes were being stored and it made them curious enough to look into Stomp Out Hunger. One person drove by the trailer, asked what it was for, gave them the shoes on his feet and drove away in his socks. Wood said students and faculty found shoes they no longer wore for the drive, but some went to garage sales to buy shoes, because they still wanted to be able to donate.

Jan Atwell, a clinical supervisor with the Nursing Department, echoed this sentiment. Atwell said past attendees have told her they remember attending Nurse for a Day and the effect it had on their nursing career. Kami Gollhofer, a marketing, recruitment and retention specialist with the Nursing Department, said that the program was created three years ago as a way to showcase the new simulation labs that the department had built.

The Nurse for a Day program is extremely popular — it’s held four times a year and hosts around 50 students each session. The program director of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Kristina Henry, said that there are always waiting lists for students to attend. Allie Hagler, a high school student who attended the program, said that she planned on becoming a nursing student and that Nurse for a Day had only reinforced that plan. “It was a great experience,” Hagler said. “I’d recommend it to anyone.”

Garton had some tips for students while they are going through the application process: • Go through the application in smaller sections.

Make a list of the ones you are writing and type them in a word processing software before copying to the application. • Proofread, proofread, proof-

Wood and Hobbs both said they hope the success of the shoe drive this year leads to a similar type of event for next year.

Q: What are the differences between online courses, iCourses and blended courses? Online courses do not have a scheduled meeting time on campus, however this does not mean that the course will not have a set schedule for when assignments must be completed and exams must be taken. Online courses allow students to manage their time throughout the week and use that time they would otherwise “be in the classroom” to complete assignments and prepare for exams. It is important to check to see if your online course requires any proctored exams or a proctored final exam. iCourses are not the same as online courses. Through an iCourse, students attend the actual classroom only for the initial class meeting and exams. Students do not attend the classroom for lectures. Course lectures can be downloaded from iTunes U through the MSU website at no cost. Students who succeed through the program plan their iCourse viewing time much like they would a traditional class setting. Blended courses integrate online and traditional face-toface class activities in a planned, valuable manner. A portion of the face-to-face time, anywhere from 30 percent to 70 percent, is reduced

by online activities and specified in the course description. Communication outside of class meetings is primarily via email, Blackboard and sometimes other online websites used specifically by the instructor. Exams are typically administered during class meetings; however, since this may not always be the case, it is important to ask your instructor about the exams when the course begins. These types of courses can be very challenging for people who are not highly self-motivated or who need a lot of personal interaction. Taking these types of classes will require a great deal of personal responsibility to yourself and to your instructor. If you are a procrastinator or find written instructions tedious and boring, then these course formats may not be for you. Q: When are the class drop deadlines for Fall 2013 classes? The last day to drop or withdraw, declare pass/notpass, and change to or from audit for full semester classes is Nov. 8. Last day to Drop or Withdraw, declare Pass/Not-Pass, and Change to or from Audit for Second Block Classes is Nov. 19. Students dropping a class will receive an automatic “W” grade. Drops and withdrawals can be processed online at My Missouri State, until midnight

of the deadline day. If you have a hold on your account preventing the use of the web registration system to drop a class, contact the Office of the Registrar prior to midnight on the deadline day. Students may withdraw from one or more of their classes online or in person at the Office of the Registrar (Carrington 320 or by fax to 417-836-8776). Q: Should I consult with my adviser before dropping a class? It is a good idea to speak with your adviser prior to dropping a class. Students should use the drop procedure judiciously, as dropping courses will generally result in extending the time required to complete a degree. In addition, dropping below a full-time or half-time enrollment status may jeopardize insurance, financial aid, scholarship, athletic participation eligibility and immigration status for (F1 or J-1 students). Students dropping a class because of a concern regarding their grade in a course are encouraged to consult with the instructor prior to dropping a course. Students who are concerned about the impact of dropping a course on their progress toward graduation are encouraged to consult with their academic adviser prior to dropping. Q: I am interested in taking a block class. What should I

consider before I enroll? There are a number of factors to consider before adding a block class to your schedule. Students often believe that block classes are easier to manage because they are abbreviated. This is a major misconception. If anything, block classes are more difficult because they are abbreviated. Block classes require students to complete the same amount of coursework as a traditional 16-week course in only eight weeks. This means that there will be less time to prepare for exams and complete assignments. If it is a seated class, the number of class meetings per week, or the amount of physical time spent in the classroom per week can be much greater than a student’s other courses. If you are considering enrollment in a block course, the demands of the course should be evaluated. You will also want to think about your other obligations that may make taking an accelerated course more challenging. Consider your work schedule, the content and demands of your other courses, as well as your extracurricular commitments (clubs, community service, etc.). As always, it is recommended that students discuss this decision with their advisers before enrollment to see when, and if, block classes are recommended.

In November, celebrate Native Americans

November brings along many things for college students to enjoy: Thanksgiving, Black Friday, the close of the semester and many other things. But one thing that often gets overlooked on our quest to stuff our faces with turkey and stuffing and our bags with new clothes and shoes — Native American Heritage Month. This November, we at The Standard urge you to not look past something very important to our history as a nation: the people who were here before us. Native American Heritage Month was started as an “effort to gain a day of recognition for the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S.,” according to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Department of the Interior. The day of recognition has grown into a month-long celebration, and there are many ways you can get involved in honoring the original settlers of the land. Missouri State is having many events for the heritage month, including a film screening of “Miss Navajo” at the Moxie Cinema on Sunday, Nov. 11; guest speaker and presentation of “Flint Knapping: The Making of Stone Tools Using Traditional Tools and Techniques” on Tuesday, Nov. 13 in Plaster Student Union at 7 p.m.; and a Plains Indian Handgame led by the Yellowhair Family (Kiowa) from Oklahoma in the PSU on Thursday, Nov. 29 from 7-10 p.m. So, even though this November might make you dream of golden turkey, Thanksgiving day football games, out-of-this-world sales and cranberry sauce, take some time to remember things that are more important. Pop in Pocahontas, attend some Missouri State sponsored events, learn about the history of our country and, more importantly, the people who first called this country home.

The Big Gay Talent Show hits stage to showcase talents of all orientations By Briana Simmons The Standard

The room was filled with laughter and jokes as people filed in to watch the acts for the night. Lesbian and gay couples sat hand in hand throughout the crowd waiting to be entertained by the show. There’s something to celebrate every month of the year, and, in October, it was LGBTQ History Month. To conclude the month’s activities, Spectrum hosted its annual Big Gay Talent Show on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

Spectrum, as Missouri State’s only LGBTQ organization, aims to provide a supportive social environment for LBGTQ persons and allies through events, philanthropy and activism. The Big Gay Talent Show was sponsored by Spectrum, but it was open to everyone. Tabitha Andujar-Bryson, a senior psychology major and one of the organizers of the talent show, explained the importance of this event. “Everyone enjoys arts and different performances. It’s a way to bring

people out that wouldn’t normally come to our events, and it gets our group exposure,”Andujar-Bryson said. Singers belted out their melodic tunes, and the dancers offered their best moves on the stage of Carrington Theater. While many people sang with or without an instrument, there were also a couple of poets and a drummer that performed as well. Montana Richardson, a junior English education major, was one of the performers to place in the competition. He performed the previous year as well. “It was really fun, although, it was a bit slow this year, but I really enjoyed performing,” Richardson said. Richardson performed a Bruno Mars song that landed him in third place.

Not just a ‘cookie-cutter education’ An MSU student is thinking ahead when it comes to his education at Missouri State By Amber Duran The Standard

Before Plaster Student Union sees its morning bustle, and before the parking lots are filled to the brim with students, Joshua Jones says good morning to his second family. Jones, a sophomore marketing major who works for Missouri State University Dining Services, gets up at 7 a.m. and heads to his office in the PSU, or his “little closet,” as he calls it. On the way to his “closet,” he waves to fellow dining service workers who are up early, getting food ready for the day, and he turns to me and says, “These guys are like my family,” with a smile. He shows me his office — behind a door I once thought was a closet — checks his email and then walks over to Cheek Hall for Computer Science class where the teacher tries to get everyone excited about Excel spreadsheets at 8:30 a.m. While some students tend to end up thousands of dollars in debt after graduation, Jones is going a different route. He started off as a full-time student and a part-time worker, but those roles have since been reversed. Jones now works full-time as marketing coordinator for MSU Dining Services and goes to school at the same time. His purpose for doing this is to work his way through school instead of borrowing his way through school. “I just don’t want to struggle,” Jones said. “I don’t want to be a burden to my grandparents or myself, and I don’t want to be overwhelmed by

debt.” Although, Jones said, sometimes he feels overwhelmed with all he has to do — work and school — and he never really has time for anything else, but that is not his biggest struggle. “Other people’s judgment,” Jones said, “that is my biggest struggle.” “People tell me that I need to focus more on my school and stop working so much, like everyone is supposed to have this cookie-cutter education, but there are so many expenses along the way,” he said. “But isn’t the goal of education to get a job?” Jones said he feels ahead of the game — he has a job he loves, and he can still get a degree while doing it. “Yeah, I’ll probably graduate a year after all my friends, and I Amber Duran/ THE STNDARD thought that would make me feel like a failure, but I decided I Joshua Jones, sophomore marketing major, is working his can’t compare myself to other way through college at Missouri State University. people,” he said.

‘Ender’s Game’ out of this world


Karman Bowers Movie Reviewer

oung adults are taking over the world, or at least they’re in command of the military. But “Ender’s Game” is not light-hearted, nor is it a love-triangle, kid’s movie. Seventy years ago, an alien race known as the Formics invaded Earth and left the human race devastated. Determined to never let it happen again, the International Military recruited brilliant children as military leaders. Andrew “Ender” Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) is the most brilliant of them all. Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) is convinced Ender is the leader and the mind needed to end the Formic threat once and for all. He

trains Ender to fight the battle that could determine the fate of the human race. Before we get started, let’s just set the best-selling books aside and look at this simply as a movie. Yes, at points I know this will be practically impossible, but as a fellow geek, I know that nobody is going to be happy with a film adaptation of a beloved source material. Yet, I also understand the basics of adapting material and understand there are necessary changes to be made. It’s a delicate balance. Thus, as a stand-alone movie, “Ender’s Game” was great. Visually it was spectacular, especially in IMAX. The landscapes were impressive; both the terrestrial and extraterrestrial. The shots of space were a little disorienting, but in a good way. There were quite a few slow, spinning shots meant to emulate the absence of gravity, so, at times, it was dizzying, but not the oh-my-god-stopshaking-the-camera kind. The story, while it involved children, was in no way childish. So often it

seems that when the proverbial “they” try to tell a story with seemingly adult themes but with young adults as the protagonists, they always have to throw in some big, gushy love triangle to make it mean something. Then, all of a sudden, no one cares about the important stuff (if it’s even there), and it’s just about which “team” you’re on. “Ender’s Game” is not like that. Yes, you can probably see a budding love story if you squint your eyes really, really hard, but in no way does it cast a shadow on the real story being told. This is where I’m going to break my own rule: the book. During the movie, I had no qualms whatsoever. I went with it, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, thinking about it later, there were a few instances where I couldn’t help but wonder if some helpful explanation from the book was missing. A few tedious explanations aside, the story had just about everything you’d want from a sci-fi movie like this: lots of cool technology, a

few very sobering scenes — some very brutal, violent and scary — and even what some might consider the best “your mom” joke ever. All in all, “Ender’s Game” was fantastic. Yes, there are going to be those die-hard fans that will be disappointed, because no one will ever be able to make the movie every fan wants. Yet, you can still appreciate the film as a whole. When you see it, make sure it’s in IMAX, it’s well worth the extra dollars. | 5

Five-time champions The men’s soccer team clinched the MVC title, remains unbeaten in conference play By Nicolette Martin The Standard

The Missouri State men’s soccer team clinched the Missouri Valley Conference regularseason title with a 1-0 victory over the Bradley

Braves on Saturday, Nov. 2. The title marks the fifth of the team’s regular season titles and first since 2011. In August, the Bears were selected to finish fifth in the MVC presea-

son poll behind SIUE, Evansville, Drake and Bradley. Instead, the team will finish alone atop the conference with a 10-3-2 record, including a spotless 5-0 record in conference play. “Goal number one was win the regular season,” said senior goalkeeper Trevor Spangenberg, who has helped the team to seven straight shutouts, in

an athletics news release. “But we have a long list of goals.” The team will conclude their regular season against SIUE on Saturday, Nov. 9 — the team’s senior night and annual “Living our Legacy” game. The game will be played at Plaster Field at 7 p.m., and a pregame tailgate with free food and music will open at 4:30 p.m.

Hawkeyes slash Ice Bears, end six-game winning streak By Chase Probert The Standard

The Missouri State Ice Bears’ six-game winning streak came to an end this past weekend in Cedar Rapids as the Iowa Hawkeyes swept the two-game set against the Ice Bears. Missouri State’s streak came to a close as the Ice Bears dropped Friday night’s game in overtime. The Bears held on to a 4-0 lead at the end of the first period, but the Hawkeyes stormed back with two goals in the second and three goals in the third to force overtime. The Hawkeyes completed the comeback by scoring in the overtime period to win by a score of 6-5. In Saturday night’s match, Iowa once again relied on a big second period to guide them to victory. The Ice Bears were tied 22 at the end of the first period, but the Hawkeyes netted three goals in the second period to help them cruise to a 6-2 victory. To go from bad to worse, the Ice Bears may have also lost freshman forward P.J. Adams for an extended period of time after Adams had a knee-to-knee collision with a Hawkeye player in Saturday’s game. According to Ice Bears radio man Steve Casson, G.M. Stan said that Adams received x-rays later that night. Adams later tweeted out that he would undergo an MRI sometime this week. Through Oct. 19, Adams had scored three goals for Missouri State and added three assists in seven games. The Ice Bears will conclude their three-week road trip this weekend as they take on the Saint Louis University Billikens in St. Louis. Missouri State will return to Mediacom Ice Park on Friday, Nov. 15 to start a two-game against the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Women’s soccer earns fourth seed in MVC tournament By Eli Wohlenhaus The Standard

Regardless of its losing record, the Missouri State Bears women’s soccer team had a shot at a first round bye in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. Unfortunately for the Bears, the team they had to defeat was Illinois State, who entered the game at 5-0 in conference play. Within the first seven minutes, Illinois State scored its first goal via Rachel Tejada, her team-leading 14th on the season. Just over five minutes later, Kyla Cross netted her fifth goal of the season for the Redbirds, giving themselves an early cushion. The excitement of the game continued as MSU’s Molly Brewer made her fourth goal of the season off a free kick in the 20th minute. The score held up, going into halftime at 2-1, Illinois State. Yet Illinois State was not done scoring, as it tacked on another goal in the 62nd minute. This would end up being the final score of the match; the Redbirds won 3-1. With this win, Illinois State became the first Missouri Valley team to go undefeated in league play since 2004. Since Missouri State lost, they will be the fourth seed going into the quarterfinals of the conference tournament when they host Evansville. The Bears’ last meeting with Evansville ended in a scoreless tie. This time, the Evansville Purple Aces travel to Springfield to play the Bears, and whoever loses will be done for the season. Missouri State has the advantage of playing at home, but Evansville is the host university for the final two rounds of playoffs, so they are motivated to get the win to watching other schools get to fight for the championship in their own backyard. Evansville defeated the women’s soccer Bears in a seasonending shootout on Sunday, Nov. 3.

A victorious goodbye

Field hockey seniors bid adieu with a 2-1 win over Ball State

By Chase Probert The Standard

The Missouri State women’s field hockey Bears earned a 2-1 victory against Ball State after a Liz Young goal in overtime on Senior Day this Sunday. Prior to the start of Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, the Bears honored seniors Andrea Bain,

Meagen Good, Hillary Lawless, Katie Mulloy, Catrina Schmidt and Laura Tavares for playing in their final home game at Missouri State. The seniors would play key roles in the victory as goalkeepers Bain and Mulloy combined for six saves in the victory and Tavares assisted on Young’s game winner in overtime. The game was scoreless through the first 46 minutes until freshman Kayleigh Schmitz scored an unassisted goal to give Missouri State a 1-0 lead. The Bears would hold that lead until Ball State’s Tori Widrick tied the game at 1-1 with :22 left in

regulation to force overtime. After losing the lead in the final minute, the Bears were quick to answer in overtime as Young scored in the third minute of overtime on a pass from Tavares. The Bears outshot the Cardinals 16-11 on the day, with each squad registering eight shots-on-goal. With the 2-1 victory, the field hockey Bears finished with a tie for fifth with Ball State in the MidAmerican Conference standings. The Bears finish the season with a 412 record and a 1-4 conference record.
