Ashlyn Ervin Printz Writer USM’s homecoming parade will be held downtown this year, coupling with the art walk and allowing businesses to become involved and benefit from the event. “Everyone in Hattiesburg wants to be involved, not just the university,” said Lauren Barrios, an exercise science major from New Orleans. Barrios is one of SGA’s two homecoming directors this year. “One thing [about homecoming] that has disappointed me in the past though is the lack of involvement from the entire student body,” said SGA president, Kasey Mitchell. In the past, lack of funding has made it nearly impossible for organizations outside of Greek life to be involved in homecoming.

“We’ve tried to come up with events that wouldn’t involve too much money, as well as combine groups to help with funding,” said Tim Wells, a sophomore and homecoming director. The Centennial Foundation has also stood behind homecoming and offered help to organizations that may not be able to afford it. Mitchell said she is impressed with the innovation Wells and Barrios brought to homecoming. “They’ve have made a lot of changes, as far as the events of the week go, that really make it easier for people to get involved,” Mitchell said. Some of the student organizations newly involved in homecoming are the Bapstist Student Union, the Legacy, the Gay Straight Alliance, Lucky Day, the Wesley Foundation and SMAC.

News In Brief:

Appeals set to begin Oct. 18

According to a draft of the appeals process, “Program elimination appeals can be scheduled beginning on Oct. 18.” The administration plans to hear program appeals first and then individual faculty appeals. According to the draft, “Appeals will be heard by a nine-member appeals panel made up of a representative of the Faculty Senate, a representative of the Academic Council, a representative of the Graduate Council, a representative of the Gulf Coast Faculty Council, and the University Ombudsman, along with four of the deans of the academic colleges.” The chair or president of the faculty governance group may serve as the representative or the group may designate or elect another current member to serve as the representative. In the draft, the administration requests that the same representative hear all appeals. Representatives may not be members of programs or departments that are appealing. Dean representation will be adjusted so that the dean whose college houses the appealing program will not serve on that particular appeal panel. President Martha Saunders will not attend the appeals but will receive the recommendations of the appeals committee and either endorse or overturn them. The provost will attend to present the rationale for recommending elimination but will not vote.

Nursing honor society hosts conference The USM chapter of the nursing honor society Sigma Theta Tau International (SSTI) will host the organization’s second biennial Region 8 Conference Oct. 7-9. “[SSTI] provides many resources for nurses and students; provides grants, scholarships, funds, conferences, online continuing education and resources for professional and career development as well as for leadership and mentoring,” Southern Miss chapter president Miriam Cabana said. The Southern Miss chapter of the organization, Gamma Lambda, will host the conference which will have events take place on and off campus. The theme of the event is “Nursing in a Global Community.” Karen Morin, international president for SSTI will deliver the keynote address titled “Leading in a Global Community.”

USM alums start businesses Mary Margaret Halford Printz Writer Despite difficult economic times, USM graduates have proved that success is still possible. Three alumni have taken what they learned here, applied it to the real world and become entrepreneurs. Charles Arinder owns Caliente Grille, Steve Johnson started Scuba Steve Clothing, and David Hosemann established a business called Hometown Medical. Charles Arinder of Caliente was an accounting and finance major during his time at Southern Miss, and he said that some of the classes he took here were useful to his career in the restaurant business. “Well for sure the basic accounting classes helped me,” Arinder said. “But the most valuable experiences were the organizations I was a part of. Sigma Chi, Southern Style and SGA all taught me to lead people, complete projects and learn task management.” Arinder said he believes strongly in giving back to the school and community that gave him his education. “Loyalty is a company value, and we want to give back and respect the people that helped make us successful,” Arinder said. “Whether it is a philanthropy event or raising money for a scholarship, or local high school, they all support us so we want to support them.” Steve Johnson is another noteworthy graduate of USM who started a business of his own, Scuba Steven Clothing. His clothing company reaches out to those in need, and for every shirt bought, one is donated to the homeless. Johnson was a research management and marketing major as an undergraduate at Southern Miss.

Homecoming, from 1

“There are eight teams that are mixed between Greeks and non-Greeks,” Barrios said. “It’s a chance for lots of different people to get to know each other.” Wells said that in order to involve people the directors had to become involved themselves. “We sent lots of emails, talked to friends and even visited some organizations to try to get them involved in homecoming,” Wells said. “I also think that switching things up will bring a new atmosphere and a newfound sense of excitement about homecoming since it’s not the same events as every other year,” Mitchell said.

“Marketing really helps with what I’m doing now,” Johnson said. “It’s a big part of my company.” Johnson also said that most of his time in class at USM was spent working on his company. “The whole time I was at school I was working on this company,” Johnson said. “I was always on the phone with web developers and clothing companies.” Johnson, like Arinder, also gained beneficial knowledge outside of learning from a textbook. “Basically through all the tests and coursework you push yourself to a limit and never give up,” Johnson said. “The coursework challenged me, and now in the business world I challenge myself to be the best I can.” David Hosemann also graduated from Southern Miss and established a medical supply company called Hometown Medical, with branches in Vicksburg and Flowood, Miss. Hosemann was a marketing major during his time at USM, and he said his classes greatly assisted him with life in the real world. “I saved all my notebooks and used them for the first 10 to 15 years after I graduated,” Hosemann said. “My marketing and retail classes were good; they taught troubleshooting and problem solving.” Besides being in the classroom, Hosemann was also on the football team. “Not only was I surrounded by good teachers, I had great coaches, too,” Hosemann said. “I really learned a lot about competition through athletics.” All of these entrepreneurs still practice the concepts they learned in school. “Knowledge doesn’t stop at the university level,” Hosemann said, “it just sets up a blueprint for success and you have to keep an open mind and learn even after school.”

“People really have no clue what to expect, and I think that if they come out to the Golden Eagle Challenge, and the Centennial games, they are really going to get into it and have a good time.” This year will also feature real floats on trailers. “We usually just have lawn decorations,” Wells said. The floats – and lawn decorations – will be judged and added to the points earned from activities during the week such as trivia in the TCC ballrooms and races around campus. At the end of homecoming, the teams’ points will be scored and the winning team will receive a plaque.

“For several years it was a lot of the same groups participating each year, which is great that they are devoted and dedicated and we love that, but we wanted to expand it even more and really make it easier for any student organization, no matter how small, or any student to get involved and engaged in homecoming,” Mitchell said. “Especially with it being our centennial year, I wanted things to really get ramped up and get people excited and involved.” The events will begin with the Golden Eagle Challenge on Monday and end with the Fountain Sit and parade on Friday.


Forum to feature Ned Sublette

An expert on the cultural origins of New Orleans will present at The University of Southern Mississippi’s University Forum Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m. in Bennett Auditorium, free of cost. Ned Sublette, award-winning author of The World That Made New Orleans: From Spanish Silver to Congo Square will present “The Making of Afro-Orleanian Culture.” The event is part of the university’s’ “French in the Americas: A closer look at the Gulf South” program, sponsored by a grant from the Mississippi Humanities Council. Burnett said focusing on the Gulf South’s history and cultural riches could not come at a more definitive moment in its history, with the recent fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and as the region deals with environmental and economic challenges brought by the British Petroleum (BP) oil spill. He is presently the Patrick Henry Writing Fellow at the C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience at Washington College, and is working on a book titled The American Slave Coast, about the ocean-going domestic slave trade. University Forum is presented by the Southern Miss Honors College. For more information, call 601-266-4533.

Hub City offers variety of fun local

Jordan Moore/Printz

A student jogs alongside his friend who rides a bike on the Longleaf Trace on Monday.

Hannah Jones Printz Writer Though Hattiesburg is famous for being a hub to numerous cities, what many don’t realize is that this hub has many spokes of its own. The Hub City offers a variety of activities and venues to be enjoyed by the masses, including outdoor adventures like camping and kayaking, entertaining events like plays, concerts and art galleries, and indulgent pampering like shopping and enjoying a delicious meal.

Hattiesburg’s downtown arts scene is jam-packed with things to do. The famous Saenger Theatre, a restored movie house from the late 1920s, regularly features a range of performances such as concerts, plays, musicals and specialized events. Main Street is home to the Hattiesburg Arts Council Gallery, which houses various collections from artists across the state of Mississippi and periodically features traveling exhibits from artists across the country. Also downtown, Hattiesburg’s October concert series,

Live at Five, begins at 5 p.m. every Friday in Town Square Park and is open to all Hattiesburgians free of charge. For those feeling a little adventurous, Hattiesburg offers numerous outdoor activities like Soggy Bottom Canoe and Kayak rentals on Black Creek, as well as camping at Paul B. Johnson state park. Another cheap outdoor activity is visiting the Hattiesburg Zoo. Jaguars, monkeys and other exotic animals can be seen for two dollars per person, a price even the tightest wallet can swing. A new addition to Hattiesburg is the

Longleaf Trace, which was created from an abandoned railroad track and transformed into a 41-mile long park trail open to the public for running, hiking, biking and horseback riding. Though countless clothing stores are scattered across Hardy Street, two boutiques bring a fashionable uniqueness to the Hub City. Irie Boutique and Red Anchor are two ultratrendy fashion hot spots aimed at making young women into the chicest fashionistas. Ashley Page, owner of Irie Boutique, is confident that Irie sells what its customers are looking for. “We sell everything that you need to complete an outfit,” Page said. “From cocktail dresses and jeans, to jewelry and handbags. We’ve got it all.” The main focus of Audra McAdory, owner of Red Anchor, is to carry the latest styles from across the country at wallet-friendly prices. “I travel to New York, Califor-

nia and Las Vegas to bring cutting edge fashion to Hattiesburg,” McAdory said. “We compare our prices to guarantee we are providing great deals.” After dark, Hattiesburg keeps the party going at bars like The Frat House, The Mahogany Bar, and Roper’s. Roper’s, a countrywestern bar, offers free line dancing lessons on Wednesday nights as well as free karaoke every night of the week. Senior English major, Candice Caponis, frequents Roper’s on Thursday’s “Lady’s Night,” which offers ladies free drinks and a five dollar cover charge. “I love hanging out there with my girlfriends,” Caponis said. “It’s a great place to go during the week.” So whether you are looking for adventure, art, the latest styles or just a place to party, it can all be found in the spokes of the Hub City.

Do the math: Zone wastes time Michelle Holowach Printz Writer Time is one of mankind’s most precious resources which should not be wasted, yet this is what the Math Zone does: its wastes my time and the time of hundreds of students across campus. The Math Zone is not a bad institution; it is good to have tutors available for students so that we are not left on our own to suffer through homework we may not understand. But the way the Math Zone is utilized could use a good makeover. Math 101 is a College Algebra class worth three credits. We go to class to learn the chapter material and then to the Math Zone to do homework and take quizzes and tests. The catch, though, is that students are required to spend 50 minutes a week in class and then three hours a week in the Math Zone. Now, if you do that math, you will realize that we put four mandatory hours a week into a course for which we only get three hours of credit. Also, the time spent studying for tests outside of class and even taking tests inside of the Math Zone does not count as any of the time required for MAT 101 per week. As many people may have discovered by now, USM offers a College Algebra class that does not require students to go to the Math Zone. The university did not make this known to me or to many others when we signed up for classes – the people who landed in this class got there mostly by luck. The code for the class, also known as Quantitative Reasoning, is MAT 100. These students receive three hours of credit for spending two and a half hours a week in class and no time in the Math Zone, while for the same three credits MAT 101 students spend four total hours a week in class and the Math Zone. Not only do MAT 101 students put more time into class then we are get out of it, but much of this time is wasted. We easily get far ahead

in our homework online, and this causes two major problems. Once we finish our homework online, we still must sit in the Math Zone for the three hours required a week. We cannot work on other homework or study for other tests without having attendance hours taken away. This wastes precious time that could be dedicated to other classes. During the 50 minutes of class the teacher usually spends time reviewing material everybody has already completed in the Math Zone. We listen to a lecture that is in no way helpful to us because several students have either already had to teach the theories to themselves in the Math Zone or had to ask a tutor to teach it to them. The Math Zone can be used in ways that would be more beneficial. First, don’t make it mandatory. We are capable of doing our homework on our own time on our computers. The Math Zone would still be a great place to seek help if we are struggling with our homework. Then it can still be a source of employment for tutors and still be used for quizzes and tests. But let’s make it more like the Writing Center or the Speaking Center – a place USM of-

fers for students in need of assistance but does not force upon them. Another way the Math Zone can be put to better use is to merely cut down the amount of time we have to spend in there. Even two hours would be better than three, and if that doesn’t give people enough time to finish their homework they can go back on

their own time or finish it on their computers at home. I am not alone in saying that the Math Zone needs to undergo a transformation. If I had a penny for the number of times I heard somebody complain about how much time they have had to waste in the Math Zone, my college tuition would be paid for.

Nobody wants to lose an asset as valuable as time – especially not in a place as hectic as college – so let’s find a better way to use the Math Zone. This was an article of opinion by Michelle Holowach, a writer for the Student Printz. Email questions or comments to

Long live laughter Local

The answers to our latest poll: Dusty Mercier/Printz

Zach Lamplugh performs comedy Thursday night at Caliente Grill’s VivaHaha Comedy Night on Thursday.

Hub City Comedy acts draw crowd and laughs to Caliente Ashlyn Ervin Printz Writer “I didn’t realize there was a comedy community like this in downtown Hattiesburg,” said Amie Guenard, a junior entertainment industry major. Thursday’s crowd at Caliente for VivaHaha Comedy Night consisted mainly of students who showed up to support their friends. Not only were the audience members friends with comics onstage, however, but the comics were friends with each other. “I’m friends with a lot of the comics in this community; we’re just a small group that gets each other,” said Mercer Morrison, a USM alumnus who majored in broadcasting. Whether comics or friends of comics, everyone in this small community seems to care about bettering each other. “[Mercer]

tried out his jokes on me, and I just laughed at him,” Guenard said. “He would ask if things were funny enough for a show.” Of the jokes Morrison told from his set Thursday, one of the most well-received was completed with the help of his friends. “I came up with my joke about having a racecar bed, but my friends really helped finish it,” Morrison said. “I was Seymour from 992002,” said Jamie Arrington, a USM alumna and past mascot. Arrington is a big player, and somewhat founder, of Hub City Comedy – a group to serve the comic community of Hattiesburg. “[Hub City Comedy] all got started with a Rock 104 competition,” said Arrington, who later added that he won that competition. “It’s funny, because I don’t really know if [Rock 104] knows what they started.” Arrington said he met a lot of

the comics through that competition, and they discussed not having a venue. “Our goal is to get a regular open mic night specifically for comedy in Hattiesburg,” Arrington said. Arrington said that the group has a Facebook page and uses it to not only inform people of comedy nights in Hattiesburg but in all the surrounding places. The comics offered advice to possible future comics. “Just try it once,” Arrington said. “The laugh makes it worth it.” Morrison said that other comics, such as the recently deceased Greg Giraldo, really inspire him, as well as help him learn the rhythm of comedy. “It’s really important not to keep your jokes to yourself,” Morrison said. “Learn your material, take your vitamins, know your audience, form your jokes around your life and listen to the comics that inspire you – but, yeah, definitely take your vitamins.”

Golden Eagles stampede Marshall Cade Morrow Printz Writer Southern Miss’ defense has continued to impress over the past four weeks. They haven’t allowed over 20 points since their week one loss versus South Carolina. They are ranked 22nd in run defense, 34th in pass defense and have the 16th overall defense in the country after five games. Coach Larry Fedora said he has been very impressed with his defense so far this season and was encouraged by the game he saw on Saturday versus Marshall. “That is three weeks in a row that the defense has played very well,” he said. “I think they have a lot of confidence in what they are doing and have a lot of trust for each other. They believe in their brothers and have their back and know they are going to do what they need to do. I am proud in the way they are playing. They have a lot of confidence in what they are doing, and they believe they are a good football team.” Southern Miss linebacker, Korey Williams, attributes the improved play of the defense to the lack of selfishness from the defensive players. “Last year, I have to admit I was

more concerned about personal stats,” Williams said. “Now this year, every guy is in it for a common goal. Nobody cares who gets the tackle. We celebrate with each other [after a stop] and it is fun. It is really fun when everybody gets a chance to make plays.” Another major improvement that the Eagles have made is at Special Teams. This Southern Miss team has already blocked three punts so far this season and kicker Daniel Hrappman is perfect on extra points and field goals so far this season. Hrappman made a 51-yard field goal Saturday versus Marshall, a career long for the kicker. “I looked up for a split-second to make sure it was going through, but after that I was already hugging on Pete (Boehme),” Hrappman said. “It was a good celebration. As soon as I kicked the ball, I can kind of tell whether it is going in our not and five seconds later the crowd was cheering. It felt pretty good.” However, Southern Miss still has some loose ends to tie up before they play East Carolina next week. The Eagles were penalized 11 times for 130 yards. “The biggest problem I can see without looking at everything is that we had too many penalties,”

Myesha Arrington/Printz

Marshall’s Darryl Roberts attempts to stop USM wide reciever Quetin Pierce’s 19-yard catch that kicked off USM’s 41-16 victory on Saturday at M.M. Roberts Stadium.

Fedora said. “We had a penalty before we even kicked the ball off. We will have to look at some things and make some adjustments with those.” USM is also battling a number of injuries on offense that

they will have to overcome. Their offensive line is missing two starters with Jason Weaver out for the season and Joe Duhon out against Marshall on Saturday. Deandre Brown missed Saturday’s game against

Marshall and is still day-to-day going into the game against East Carolina. Quentin Pierce played against the Herd but went down early with an injury and his availability for the ECU game is unknown.


Saints go marching to victory Kurt Cavataio Printz Writer It was another nail-biter that Saints fans didn’t want to see. The New Orleans Saints snuck by the Carolina Panthers (0-4) 1614 off of K John Carney’s three field goals. The 46-year-old kicker seemed like his old self as he singled-handedly kept the Saints in the game. The Saints offense continues to struggle to put the ball into the endzone only putting up 16 points and only one touchdown. Drew Brees continues to be inconsistent at times as he completed only 68 percent of his passes passing 33 of

48 for 275 and a touchdown. New Orleans (3-1) once again turned the ball over one too many times. They had two turnovers to Carolina’s one. “This was a 30-point day we turned into 16 points with turnovers and a lack of execution,” Brees said. Ladell Betts got the start due to Pierre Thomas being out with a bad ankle. By all accounts, Betts did a pretty good job. Betts had 13 carries for 47 yards. “I just tried to play hard,” he said. “The main focus for me was to make sure I knew what I needed to do on each play. I made a few mistakes here and there, but I just tried to play hard and help the team win.” Coach Sean Payton said, “I thought he brought some tough-

ness, and I thought it was contagious to our sideline and our offense.” Chris Ivory also got a heavy dose of running. Ivory lead the team with 12 carries for 67 yards. He also had a crucial fumble that stalled a drive. “Minus the fumble, I think I did pretty good,” Ivory said. “I still have room to make corrections, but overall I think I played a pretty good game.” Despite not causing a turnover for the second straight game, the defense held the Panthers offense to 118 yards rushing. Deangelo Williams had a 39-yard rushing TD. Other than that, it was tough going for the Carolina rushing attack. In Jimmy Clausen’s second career start, he was 11 of 21 for

146 yards and one score. His lone TD was a 55-yard strike to a wide open Jonathan Stewart for a 55-yard TD. John Carney took the field for the first time after being brought in after Garret Hartley’s 29-yard missed field goal in OT against the Falcons. He looked like old-vintage Carney as he split the uprights on all three of his field goal attempts. “It’s a great situation,” Carney said. “I feel blessed and fortunate to have the opportunity to come back here and help the Saints, whether in a playing capacity or coaching capacity.” He hit twice from 32 yards out and another from 25 yards out. The Superdome crowd became

deafening late in the fourth quarter when Carolina was attempting to win the game on their last drive. With the ball near midfield, Jimmy Clausen was sacked by Malcolm Jenkins and seemed to be distracted by the crowd as a couple of his passes were well short of the intended target. New Orleans dominated in time of possession with a 38:22 to 21:38 advantage. Safeties Pierson Prioleau and Chris Reis left the game with a chest and shoulder injury respectively. It looks like RB Reggie Bush will be out at least another week recovering from his fractured fibula. The Saints play the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday at 3 p.m. central time in Arizona.
