Campus News news updates Pamper yourself: Wesley Foundation helps pamper students Texas Southern University’s Wesley Foundation offered free manicures, haircuts, hair advice and a complimentary lunch to students during their second annual “Pamper Yourself” day. The event took place inside the foundation’s building on the corner of Sampson and Cleburne, which is located directly behind the Jesse H. Jones School of Business.

Students from Franklin Beauty School were invitied to offer TSU students manicures and hair advice. The were also barbers who were giving out free haircuts. “Today I’m just here to talk to the students of TSU about natural hair care,” said hair stylist Monay Braden. “I’m teaching them how to minimize breakage, maintain hairstyles and maximize growth.” The students who participated enjoyed the event. “Overall, the experience was great,” said senior business management major Matthew Hayes. “The Wesley Foundation is a great organization, they come out here and do things for students although, a lot of them don’t know about it because it’s in the cut, they do a lot for not only the local but school community as well.”

KTSU loses a legend Myron Anderson, a KTSU (90.9FM) radio host for over 30 years, passed away on Thursday, Feb. 7 after a brief illness. Anderson was the host of the “Listening Back” morning show every Friday. He began his KTSU career as TSU student back in 1981, and later graduated in 1987.

Rosemarie Bautista Photo credit: Dominique Monday BY AMEENA RASHEED Editor-in-Chief Rosemarie Bautista doesn’t make excuses. She just makes it happen. The 29-year-old Houston-native started at TSU in 2009 and graduated magna cum laude in spring 2012 with an undergraduate degree in human services and consumer sciences with an emphasis on child and family development. Bautista graduated with a 3.67 grade point average in three years, which is commendable for any student, but her circumstances make her accomplishments standout among her peers even further. She is a married mother of three (ages 4, 6 and 8), two of which have illnesses. Her 6-year-old daughter has epilepsy and her 8-year-old son has sensory integration disorder. She also juggled as many as three jobs during her undergraduate career while working toward her education. “I would work in the morning at one job, go to class, work in the afternoon at another job, then go to pick up my kids, but stay at the child care facility with my children and teach in the evenings,” said Bautista. She credits her effective time management skills and tireless work ethic as one of the reasons why she’s able to juggle the tasks of being a wife, mother and student. “You just do what you have to do to

graduate,” Bautista said. “I wasn’t worried about using the summer for vacations or hanging out.” She is now in graduate school continuing her studies in human services and consumer sciences, and hopes to graduate in the fall of 2013. Outside of her studies Bautista is working to reach out to her fellow untraditional students who may struggle with balancing school and work. This semester, she founded the Graduate Student Government Association. “I didn’t feel as if the needs of graduate student were really assessed the way that they should be,” Bautista said. “You have to include all of your students, you can’t just only focus on the undergrad. [Graduate students] want to see more than parties, they want to see professional development programs and seminars.” Bautista is working hard to make sure that every student’s voice is heard.

Little known fact about Rosemarie She lived in Durham, N.C. from 2006 to 2009. While living there, she briefly attended Durham Technical Community College. During her “Introduction to Business” final exam, her water broke. Instead of leaving, she finished her final and made it to the hospital just in time to give birth to her baby.

Cover Story The blacker the college, the less concentrated the experience BY KENNETH WARE JR. Life & Style Editor Lawrence Williamson III grew up in a predominately White neighborhood his entire life and originally planned to attend the University of Houston’s (UH) main campus immediately following high school graduation. The historic campus of Texas Southern University (TSU) was never a pressing option despite its notable alumni - Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, Grammy-award winning jazz saxophonist Kirk Whalum, former NFL star and current television host Michael Strahan, Congressman Micky Leeland and awardwinning gospel singer Yolanda Adams. “Both of my parents graduated from the University of Houston so they pressured me to attend their alma mater,” Williamson said. “All I knew growing up was ‘Go Coogs!’” Williamson recalls being dressed in “flashy scarlet red and white t-shirts, baseball caps and sweatshirts” up until his “unforgettable high school days.” “The only difference in high school is that I was allowed to pick out the specific gear I wanted from the UH bookstore,” Williamson said. Despite parental peer pressure, at the age of 19 Williamson decided to attend TSU after attending a recruitment seminar in the Sawyer Auditorium during his senior year in high school. “I was excited to see so many people on the campus who looked like me plus the pharmacy program, in my opinion, is the best in the world,” Williamson said. That was four years ago. Now Williamson is a 23-yearold who is disappointed with TSU’s lack of enthusiasm displayed during Black History Month. “I do not recall ever hearing about a Black History Month event or activity since I have been at TSU,” Williamson added, “except maybe once or twice and I have been at TSU since 2009.” Other TSU alumni and current students share the same sentiments as Williamson. They all agree that the university’s efforts to recognize Black History Month are lackluster, especially since TSU is one of the largest historically black university. Black History Month had its beginnings in 1926 in the United States as “Negro History Week.” Historian Carter G. Woodson created the holiday with the hope that it eventually be eliminated when Black History became fundamental to American History. Radio, television and film student Julian Kane feels that Black History month is no longer needed. “Black History should be learned and taught every single day,” Kane said. “Black people were the foundation of the United States.” The White House was largely built by enslaved and free African-American laborers and after eight years it was completed on November 1, 1800. Ironically, 213 years later our nation’s

first Black president is now serving his second term. “I think it would be cool if a booklet of 28 influential black people that history books do not teach students about was given to students each February,” Kane said. TSU alum Donovan Boson is a current graduate student at the University of Saint Thomas. He believes there is room for improvement. “I think TSU should make Black History Month the highlight of the year with activities rivaling those of Homecoming and Spring Fest,” Boson said. Homecoming and Spring Fest boast large crowds on TSU’s campus and offer an array of activities for faculty, staff, students and visitors to the campus. “Because TSU does not necessarily foster a meaningful celebration of Black culture the students are left to come up with piecemeal activities,” Boson said. “Students recognize but really do not celebrate Black History Month like we should.” Boson believes guest speakers like actors and actresses, comedians, writers, politicians and businessmen and women should be invited to a one-week long celebration culminating in a festival displaying and celebrating Black arts and entertainment. Non-Black students at TSU would also like to see more Black History Month events occur on a consistent basis. Graduating senior Stephanie Madrid is a Hispanic student and appreciates Black History Month because it allows her to learn about the struggles faced by Black Americans and how they affect her own culture. “I believe all the TSU students care about Black History Month,” Madrid added, “but students are so distracted with other things that they often overlook the past and its importance to the future.” Madrid is not aware of any Black History Month events on campus but says if she finds one that she is interested in then she will definitely attend and engage with the crowd. A visitor to the university’s newly updated website will not find any mention of Black History Month or direct links to any events that may be hosted by one of the many campus organizations. “TSU has the potential to be the epicenter of Black culture in terms of the convergence of Houston ’s socially, culturally and scholastically inclined African Americans,” Boson said. Boson is personally celebrating by visiting Black cultural institutions in Houston like the famed Breakfast Klub, Ensemble Theater and SHAPE Center. “It is ultimately up to the students to push for things to happen so I am looking forward to some new initiatives and seeing them come to life in 2014,” Williamson said. “It is never too late.”

Every student loves a little ‘Scandal’ BY KENNETH WARE JR. Life & Style Editor An addictive new show on ABC has single-handedly renamed one of the calendar days - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, ‘Scandal,’ Friday, Saturday and Sunday. ‘Scandal’ is a one-hour drama that is less about solving crime than about protecting reputations, and in Washington, D.C. there is no higher calling. Kerry Washington is Olivia Pope, a “Washington, D.C. fixer” who worked for and was sexually involved with the president of the United States. “Politicians shock us all the time on a daily basis so it is not surprising why this show is soaring in ratings,” said graduating senior Carrie Boudreaux. When things got too hot for Pope politically and sexually, she opened her own shop with people who also have shady pasts from former high-level positions. Sophomore student Kayden Jones says she is the “Olivia Pope of TSU.” “I am always helping friends fix their problems but I have my own I need to fix,” Jones said. “I think I am going to change my major to counseling.” Their job is to fix private scandals before they become public disgraces and Pope leaves no room for error. She is quick on her feet and not afraid to bend the rules when required. When the show debuted in April 2012, Washington became the first African American actress to have the lead in a network drama in almost 40 years. The buzz surrounding this show has taken the Internet by storm. All of the main cast members have a Twitter account and they are actively engaged with their fans. “Every Thursday you will find all my tweet references to the show end with the ‘#Gladiator’ hashtag,” Boudreaux said. True ‘Scandal’ followers on Twitter or any social media platform refer to themselves as “gladiators.” The term derived from a popular line in the first season when Columbus Short’s character referred to himself as a “gladiator in a suit.” From that point, the reference took off in the ‘Scandal’ community. Twitter is not the only social media platform where “gladiators” rally. On Facebook, the series’ main page boasts more than half a million fans. Jones never watched the debut season, but felt a need to check it out after so many of her friends passionately discussed it online. “Every Thursday my Instagram was flooded with pictures of Kerry [Washington] with convincing comments,” Jones said. Jones felt that watching one episode could not hurt her since everyone was drawn in by the show. “I am normally not a follower but I admit that I gave in and I have been hooked ever since,” Jones said. She watched previous episodes on the on-demand internet streaming media provider Netflix. More people are hopping on the ‘Scandal’ bandwagon. Most recently, the hit show scored awards at the 44th Annual NAACP Image Awards.

“As a black woman, it is inspiring to see another black woman in a leading role on ABC,” Boudreaux said. Tune in to ‘Scandal’ on Thursdays at 10PM/9C to find out what all the hype is about.

Viewers are enthralled by Scandal’s main character Olivia Pope (played by Kerry Washington), a former White House Communications Director who now runs her own crisis management firm, Olivia Pope and Associates.

Fun facts about SCANDAL • According to Nielsen, “Scandal” is the highest-rated scripted drama among African-Americans, with 10.1 percent of black households, or an average of 1.8 million viewers. • Kerry Washington is the first African-American female lead in a network drama in almost 40 years. The first was Teresa Graves as an undercover cop in “Get Christie Love!”, which had its debut in 1974. • Shonda Rhimes, the show’s executive producer, was also the creator, head writer and executive producer of Grey’s Anatomy and its spin-off Private Practice.

Justin Anderson is a sprinter on the TSU Track team and is currently 9th in the 60m NCAA indoor track rankings. Anderson is an easy-going, incredibly gifted runner from Jacksonville, FL. Earlier this year, at the Leonard Hilton Memorial Indoor Meet hosted by University of Houston, Justin dashed down the track, winning in a photo fi nish with a time of 6.67. The senior is looking for forward to graduating in the summer of 2013, and is eyeing for his future to remain on the track. Buck Bedia: Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule for us. You’re coming up on last semester here at TSU, how would you say your stay was here in Houston. Justin Anderson: Oh, it was great, I’ve lived in a few places, and so coming out here wasn’t that scary at fi rst. I love it here, the city is so diverse, even the campus is and you wouldn’t think it would be being an HBCU. BB: When did you start taking track seriously? JA: My dad used to take me to meets all the time when I was younger; I remember having a lot of fun at the meets as a kid. As a runner though, I actually tried out in 9th grade, but I wasn’t ready for the hard work that involved track. So I when I came out my junior year, I was ready to put in the effort that required to be a great sprinter. I always knew I was fast but I did not think I was fast enough to run for college. BB: What do you do to prepare the day of the meet? JA: I always eat a light breakfast, you can’t try to run on a full stomach, and it won’t be pretty after. But during the day I try to stay loose, mentally you have to be focused running is tough mentally. BB: What are some of the goals you have set for yourself?

JA: I have really developed a passion for track and honestly, I want to stay in track, if I’m not running after I graduate, I defi nitely would love to be a coach for college or high school. BB: Any little superstitions you would like to share? JA: (Laughs) I do the same thing before I get in the blocks, and try to get mentally ready. BB: What motivates you to keep on going? JA: The training, getting results from the training. I love that feeling of being tired, I feel accomplished at the end of the day, knowing I pushed myself harder than the day before. When I’m not training, I’m reading up on technique or watching video of other sprinters. BB: What is your least favorite class? JA: (Laughs) Western Literature, only because I have to read a lot in that one, it’s really not that bad though. BB: Any meets coming up that you have marked on the calendar? JA: The Indoor SWAC Championship is next weekend on the Feb. 15th, so I’m exciting about that one and of course the TSU Relays are always fun to be a part of coming up in March. BB: Yes, in the beginning of March, TigerNation will defi nitely be on hand at that meet. Well, good luck at the SWAC Championship and for the rest of the spring season, it was a pleasure meeting you. JA: Thank you, it was fun.
