The Best-Decorated Dorms on Campus This fall the Claw was on a search for the best decorated dorm room on campus. Readers submitted photos of their rooms and the best ones were thoughtfully selected. Here are the stories behind the masterwork and a few tips they have about how to decorate your own dorm!
Emily’s rugs are a great solution for the cold and/or hard ϐǤϐ ϐǤ
by Natalie Stacker
pon walking into freshman Emily Kutil’s room in Lujan Hall, the most common response is, “Wow! That must have taken forever!” It did, and Emily’s hard work certainly paid off. A double ϐ -‐ tions, Emily has created her dream room complete with lanterns hanging from the ceiling that she glittered herself. The glittered lanterns and many of the designs in her room came from Pinterest, a Ȁ ϐ cool ideas for almost anything. It all started with a pink and black bedspread from which everything else evolved. Using her three favorite things -‐ Paris, the movie “Tangled” and pink -‐ as her inspiration, she spent about $900 for everything in her room. Places she bought her decorations from include Hobby Lobby, Bed Bath & Beyond, Michaels and Kohl’s. Even though it took a long time and a lot of money to get everything, Emily says it was worth it. “It makes my dorm something to look forward coming back to,” Emily says.

Rebecca Hoover and Danielle Brown’s dorm room in Turner Hall is quite the home away from home. The walls are adorned with hand-‐painted murals of beach life and strings of colorful lights create a soothing atmosphere that no one who enters the room can deny. Everything seems to fall perfectly into place; it had to be planned. Well, it wasn’t and that’s the best part.
Rebecca says she bought most of her deco-‐ rations at the Container Store. But let’s face it: Decorations can be expensive! Turn your creative side on and try making some of your own décor! Not only is it cheap, but it adds a personal touch and you can get some good roommate-‐bonding-‐time out of it, too.
“We combine what we have to make something pretty,” Danny says, a sophomore pre-‐nursing major. Danny and Rebecca, who is a sophomore elementary education major, have been friends for eight years and ϐ will probably do so for the rest of their college stay. To-‐ gether they helped create the beautiful paintings that highlight their dorm. Originally meant for their high school’s Hawaiian-‐themed After Prom party last year, the murals are their pride and joy, especially the one of ϐȋ middle left).
Another unique aspect of their room is the riddle contest the gals do every week for their next-‐door neighbors. After one is solved, they put it on the back of their door to see how many they had done and laugh at the ones that were particularly hard. It’s a great way to interact with your neighbors while also giving your mind a nice workout and having some friendly compe-‐ tition. Another good idea is to put trivia questions out-‐ side your door either on a small whiteboard or simply a piece of paper where passersby can write their answers. Here’s an example -‐ See if you can solve it! ȋ͵ʹȌ
Keeping your dorm clean can also add a homey feel as well as lower stress levels. For some, having everything nice and tidy makes studying easier because one can get distracted by things being messy or not having enough room for doing homework. Just take a few minutes every day to put things where they belong, and vacuum every couple weeks. College is already stressful – why not at least have a nice environment to work in?

There and Back Again:
Questions from one student to another about studying abroad by Shelby Foster and Khalie Shields
Being thrust into an unknown culture sounds completely thrilling and terrifying at the same time. I spent hours researching programs, applying to said programs and then paying all the initial fees that just allow my applica- tion to be processed. It was bad, but not nearly as bad as it sounds. Getting accepted into my program, however, Ǥ ǣ ϔǡ four months. Just imagining all the moments I’d be missing in the six months I’ll be gone was enough for me to second guess my choice to go. But after talking with Khalie Shields, an English major and a copy editor for The ǡ ϔ Ǥ Shelby Foster: Why did you choose to study abroad? Khalie Shields: I chose to because it was an experience of a lifetime. I had never been out of the country and it seemed like a paid vacation. How did you go about choosing the country you went to? ϐ I ever wanted to go. Then, I looked at the programs they had to offer.
ϐ in Norway because of the outdoor education program. It seemed like an awesome opportunity. What are good resources for choos- ing a host country? The Center for International Educa-‐ ϐ their website. There are also many fairs and information booths. Did studying abroad set your graduation timeline back? No, I am still scheduled to graduate a semester early. How did you go about choosing your classes abroad? I literally picked the one that sound-‐ ed most interesting. I have university wide credits within my degree and had the option to do as I pleased when it came to coursework. What kind of housing options are there, and what housing did you have? I only had the option of living in the student housing. The on-‐campus was really expensive, but living off-‐cam-‐ pus (still in student housing) gave me a whole new experience. ϐ ǫ Getting a visa was extremely expen-‐
ϐ Ǩ bus two and a half hours both ways multiple times to the police station in Norway with minimal help. The visa didn’t even come until I was two weeks away from leaving and coming back to America. ϐ few days abroad like? My departure was stressful because DIA thought I needed my visa ahead of time to leave. I ended up running all the way to the terminal after stum-‐ bling through security, trying to cut the lines. I was so excited to get there I didn’t sleep on any of the planes. When I made it to Norway, I didn’t know where I was going, but Susanna ǡǡ
friends. Making friends immediately was easy, and that helped the most. How did the host country treat you being an American? Norwegians are very kind people. They asked me a lot of questions about stereotypical things about Americans and black people. It was like I represented all of America, in-‐ stead of Denver, where I am from. Were there obstacles you faced while abroad? Other than being completely lost at times and not knowing the language, things were fairly non-‐complicated. The host institution helped out a lot. What are a few of your favorite memories from your time abroad? My favorite memories are all the class trips and the class parties we had. The most memorable parties were the going-‐away parties. We knew once our friends left we might not ever see them again. We grew close with each other, and it was really hard to say goodbye knowing I might never see them again. When your time abroad was wrap- ping up, how did you feel? I was really excited to go home. There was a two-‐week period at the end of my stay where everyone had ϐǤ get back to my real life. What did you gain from your expe- rience abroad? The list of things I gained studying abroad is endless. Most importantly, I gained maturity and had a lot of self-‐ growth.
“We had to find the grocer y store, lear n what was what in ter ms of food, figure out the bus and where the school was. Ever ything was new. Literally ever ything and ever yone.” ǡϐ-‐ ϐǤ ϐ ǡ ǡϐ the bus and where the school was. Everything was new. Literally every-‐ thing and everyone. Were you homesick? How did you cope? I never got homesick. I talked to my parents a lot using a free app called Bobsled. What helped you integrate into the host culture? I am really outgoing and not afraid to talk to new people and make new
@UNCOPROBLEMS If students don’t follow @UNCOProblems, that’s a problem. by Zant Reyez
The Twitter account allows Bears to tweet UNC-‐related issues they encounter on campus. The account was created by a female senior journalism and mass communications major and is run by her and a male senior commu-‐ nications major. The operators are taking a cue from the character V from the movie “V for Vendetta” and keeping the mystery alive by using one letter to identify themselves. ϐ “M” and the communication major as “H.” M wrote in an email to The Claw that her inspiration for the account came after a night of fun and down-‐ ing a fair amount of adult beverages. “I made it about a year ago,” M wrote. “I was drunk one night and it just came to me.” H wrote in the same email that he joined the page a month after it was created. Last semester M took a break from the account and entrust-‐ ed her creation to H. She credits ϐǡ retweeting and favoriting tweets. “I pretty much put the team on my back and tried my best to keep the account going, but she’s back now so it’s all good,” H wrote. It took some detective work from H to join M in her work as he set out to discover who was typing the tweets. “I was pretty much playing guess-‐ ing games on who was behind the Ǥ ϐ out,” he wrote. He gave his number to M and to make the mystery even more intri-‐ cate, she called him from a blocked number and gave him a list of clues as to who she was. Once H had gone through this list and applied all the clues she gave him, he solved it and
M made sure he would be the only one to do so. “I asked him to join me so that I could blackmail him into not reveal-‐ ing my identity,” she wrote. Aside from getting to interact with over 1,000 followers, the perks of running the account are pretty simple and rewarding for them. “Personally, I just like to complain,” M wrote. “So getting to complain publically and having people agree with me is lovely.” “I love when I send a tweet out and it gets a good response from my followers. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside,” H wrote. The most common tweets sent to them deal with the mind-‐of-‐their-‐ own-‐sprinklers and obese squirrels on campus. A problem both seniors would like to see resolved is the lack of school spirit. “UNC students are seriously slack-‐ ing. I mean, win or lose you should still stand behind your teams… Or stumble if you properly pregame the events,” M wrote. Both seniors wrote they don’t hear students talk about the account on campus, but they want every Bear to know of their problems. “I do want a lot of people know-‐ ing about this account because this account is kind of a way to bring people together and laugh about all our common UNCO problems,” H wrote. There are not too many down-‐ sides to running the account for the seniors, but there are times when keeping their identity a secret is a challenge. Both wrote it’s hard when they’re talking to friends about it because the urge to reveal them-‐
selves is at its pinnacle. “Sometimes it sucks to not tell people I’m running this account especially when my friends tweet at this account,” H wrote. “But I also love the secrecy behind it. It kind of lets me be whoever I want to be.” H wrote that he hasn’t told anyone in Greeley that he runs the account, but has told someone in Greeley’s neighbor to the north, Fort Collins. “I’ve actually told a few people this semester. YOLO,” wrote M about letting some in on the secret. When both are handed a diploma this year, they each have their own vision of what they want to see hap-‐ pen to the account. ǲ ϐ dollars cash or buy me Chipotle, I’d willingly give it up,” M wrote. “When I graduate, I would like to give the account to a friend who’s younger than me that I can trust to carry on the UNCO account,” H wrote. The account started from the adult Ǧϐ student with the intentions of enter-‐ taining her fellow peers. One year, one co-‐tweeter and many clicks on the follow button later, the account has done what it was set out to do. If interacting with fellow UNC Bears and tweeting problems for laughs and retweets doesn’t make students tap or click the follow but-‐ ton, H and M give two reasons why students should: “I love me, so you should love me,” Ǥ ϐ offer to hand the account over for Chipotle is legit. “Because I’m hilarious and be-‐ cause your mom said you should,” H wrote.

“Thanks for joining us on Bear News. I’m Emily Carr.” “And I’m Kristen Schauvliege…” After a keyed-‐up, energetic open-‐ ing sequence, this begins the weekly installment of Bear News 98, UNC’s only campus news program. For 20 minutes and 31 seconds, co-‐anchors Carr and Schauvliege read the news with support from sports anchor Rachel Turnock and meteorologist Paul Ford. The resulting broadcast will air on campus channel 98 and be uploaded to YouTube for the general public. What looks like a simple and short program is actually the result at least a week’s worth of work, put in exclusively by UNC students. The Claw went behind the scenes with Bear News 98 to shine a light on what goes on beyond the news desk. Thursday is news day in Candelaria Hall. Every Thursday afternoon at 4:00 p.m., around 20 students gather at a rectangular table in CAND 1345. It’s boisterous. People talk about their days, what’s going on this weekend and make jokes. However loud it may be, when UNC professor of broadcast journalism, Dale Edwards, announces it’s time to get to work, the room falls silent. This is what they all came for. It is time to start making this week’s installment of Bear News. Edwards (affectionately nicknamed Dr. E by his students) may call the weekly news meetings to order, but his role is strictly adviser. Bear News is entirely student-‐run. After making general announcements, Edwards hands the meeting over to Turnock, lead sports anchor, to announce a game plan for next week’s show.
Schauvliege, who is also executive producer of Bear News, runs the news portion of the meeting. Story ideas are suggested based on what’s new, what’s up and what’s going on around campus. One reporter wants to do a package on the Affordable Health Care Act, aka Obamacare, and what it means for students. Schauvliege brings up that they’d have to be careful to remain objective on the piece and not report solely for one side. Dr. E says that there’s a lot of what he called “bo-‐ vine excrement” about what the law is and what it does. The angle of the Obamacare segment will be discussed further, with Dr. E stepping into his advisory role. “I want us to be a serious news source,” Schauvliege says. “We have to be objective in everything we do.” Producing a Bear News story is a completely independent endeavor. After a story is assigned, reporters set up the interviews, operate the equip-‐ ment and make the story come to life. Students then edit the tape. Video deadlines are Tuesdays. Once news items are out of the way, director Jordan Doucette takes over. He reads down the list of duties with precision. As he goes over camera cues and scripting details, the staff follows dutifully along in their scripts. At this ǡʹͲϐ pages at the same time makes that noise every college student is all too familiar with. Bear News 98 is recorded live-‐ to-‐tape every Thursday night.

In broadcast news, even student broadcast news, the show you record is the show you air. “I want you guys to be on your toes,” Doucette tells his staff. “Things can go wrong. What makes us great is not what we do when things are going right. It’s what we do when things go wrong that matters,” Doucette says. Once every assignment is given out and every camera angle discussed, the ϐ into the adjourning rooms to start work on the show. Anchors, reporters, camera crew and prompter: into the studio; director, video crew: into the control room. These rooms will look completely different in a few months.

Just as
Emily Carr Co-Anchor soon as he’s done, Carr and Schau-‐ vliege open the show: a seamless and smooth transition that was really cool to see from both sides. Doucette doesn’t stop talking for more than a few seconds once the show begins. There’s always some-‐ thing to direct, a camera angle to change, a cue to give. While the an-‐ chors speak, Doucette directs the rest of the staff who integrate video, sound and studio footage into a full show. “Ready camera one…and take two… ready playback one…we’re coming back on camera two.” In the studio, anchors and reporters are under constant watch of the cam-‐ era. There are two cameras in the Bear News studio, so even when the screen is airing something else, at least one camera is always on the news desk. The average Bear News viewer will never know that Carr massages her hands between segments. This does get captured on footage, however as soon as she gets her cue she folds her hands neatly on the desk in front of her like it never happened. Meanwhile, Turnock rests her chin in her palm and watches reporters as they talk. “I hate seeing myself on camera,” Carr says. “It would be so much harder to know the cameras are always on
Kristen Schauvliege Co-Anchor you if I didn’t trust everyone in this room.” Turnock agrees. “We all really do get along here and that makes the hardest part of this job so much easier,” Turnock says. While on camera, anchors and re-‐ porters read scripted material from a teleprompter. Running the prompter is probably the most dreaded job in the Bear News studio. According to Doucette, running the prompter is all risk and no reward. “You just scroll as they read, but if you mess up… it’s kind of a big deal,” Doucette says. Without the tele-‐ prompter, anchors have to think on the ϐǤ Ford does not rely on the teleprompt-‐ er. He gives his entire weather segment unscripted and from memory in front of the chroma, better known as the green screen. He moves in front of the screen during his segment: his own choreography. He knows the screen well enough to know where to go, but says he can always check the monitor to make sure he’s in the right place. Estel Plague, an exchange student from France studying television jour-‐ nalism, reports entertainment news in front of the chroma. For this show, she reads a self-‐penned movie review of
Paul Ford Meteorologist “The Conjuring.” During the opening of her piece, the wrong image ends up on the chro-‐ ma. Plague is standing in front of a weather screen. Plague is a natural on camera and—although she probably didn’t know anything was wrong—her energy distracts from the error. Back in the control room, Doucette says he overlooked the movie review backdrop. Something did go wrong, but Doucette used it as a coaching mo-‐ ment and a learning opportunity. The rest of the show goes smoothly. Bear News ends on a feature called “Pinterest Pick of the Week.” This week, Carr and Schauvliege discuss bacon-‐shaped adhesive bandages. “We’re gonna go get some bacon, right?” Carr asks. “Sounds good to me,” Schauvliege says. “Thanks for joining us this evening. We’ll be back next week,” Carr says. “’Til then stay up to date on our Facebook page, Bear News 98. Be sure to like us!” “Have a great week.” Bear News is over for the week. In the control room, Doucette leads the crew in a round of applause.
Live Like Austi What does it mean?
phrase “Live Like Austin” during his high school track meets. In the spring of 2013, Tyler showed a YouTube video Austin’s family made to some of the football coaches, which sparked a sensation. “Scott called me up one day and said ‘Hey! Tyler showed Austin’s video to a couple people and they want to have you guys come out,’” Kurt says. “So we came out in the spring and spent a day here. It was absolutely amazing what they did and from that the conversation started ‘So let’s bring you out for a game.’ I just can’t say enough about Coach Collins, the staff, faculty and coaches and what they do for my son.” The spring trip to Greeley proved successful for both the football pro-‐ gram and the Ervin family. The team took Austin in and let him join them during practices, meals and meetings. While everyone expected it to be a fun experience, Kurt says he was taken aback by how welcoming the entire UNC community was. “As we’ve walked around campus the last two days, people just stop and say
‘Hey! You’re Austin!’ It’s overwhelm-‐ ing,” Kurt says. “It speaks to the heart of UNC. It restores my faith in human-‐ ity.” With Austin’s condition, he could suffer from a serious seizure at any time with little to no warning. Coach Earnest Collins Jr. witnessed one of ϐ during a team meeting a day prior to the game. While the seizure only lasted about a minute, it left a resounding impact on Collins. “Words can’t describe that young man to me,” he says. “I actually witnessed him having a seizure yesterday… It was absolutely amazing how he reacted after that situation. It was about a minute or so. His dad picked him up out of the meeting and sat him in the hallway and he had his seizure and then he jumped up like ‘OK, let’s go’ and, you know, that’s part of what it is for us. No matter what’s happen-‐ ing or has happened, you’ve got to move on and keep working at it to get better.” Kurt says this was one of the shorter seizures Austin will have. He also mentioned Austin had two seizures
“Not taking anything for granted, being positive and upbeat every day, all day long and just persever- ing through anything really.” – Seth Lobato, UNC quarterback The sun beats down on Notting-‐ ham Field as the early fans began to enter the stadium. The Bears’ football ϐ as they run through various drills. Among the coaches and monstrous players dressed in navy blue and gold uniforms stood a young boy in an oversized jersey. Even while wearing jeans, he participated in some of the drills. This boy, a 14-‐year-‐old named Austin Ervin, is the honorary captain-‐ of-‐the-‐day after becoming a valuable part of the Bears’ football program. Austin was diagnosed with closed-‐ lip bilateral schizencephaly, a con-‐ dition that causes him to endure as many as 80-‐100 life-‐threatening seizures per day. After undergoing three brain surgeries and removing the majority of the right side of his brain, he still continues to smile and inspire people. The Bears played Northern Iowa Saturday, Sept. 21 and deemed it “Live Like Austin Day.” In addition to letting Austin join them for the weekend, the football team sold bracelets and T-‐shirts to raise money for the Austin Ervin Foundation. The money they raised as well as mon-‐ ey donated on the Live Like Austin website helps Austin’s family pro-‐ vide 24/7 care for him and others facing similar circumstances. Bears’ redshirt freshman ǡǡϐ heard about Austin from his father, a pastor in Aurora. His father, Scott Bloyer, met Austin’s father, Kurt Ervin, at a pastor’s conference.

At the end of the sixth hole, the trio doesn’t mention the score as of-‐ ten as before; the game becomes more focused on joyfully tossing around the disc and enjoying the weather. Freeman hit his third birdie, also known as a turkey. The trio said that while some of the bet-‐ ter courses in northern Colorado are in Fort Collins, they all dream of playing at courses in Sam Kurucz plans his next throw on UNC’s disc golf course. Michigan: the mecca of disc golf courses in the country. The Kensington Toboggan course in Milford, Michigan is the site of the U.S. Amatuer Disc Golf Championship. Freeman sums up his desire in six words: “I freakin’ want to play it.” Drawing their focus back to the course before them, the guys play the seventh and eighth holes in front of Bishop-‐Lehr Hall. ϐǡ ǯ Ǥϐǡǯ-‐ portant to write your name and number on the back of your disc in case you lose it.

BEAR’S COUNTRY SALOON
Story and photo by Lindsey Carrier
ear’s Country Saloon, for-‐ mally Dutch’s Bar & Grill, is the newest addition to the downtown Greeley bar scene. Located between Grabo’s Bar & Grill and The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant on 9th street, it is the perfect place to unwind if you’re a little bit country. Bear’s Coun-‐ try Saloon opened its doors in August, which was perfect timing as school came back into session. Boots, cowboy hats and whisky are all common themes in a coun-‐ try bar, and when walking though the doors of Bear’s Country Saloon one can see that it is 100 percent committed to a country theme. Recently added décor involves haystacks and barrels topped off with the latest country hits to ensure the country vibe. Ryan Gentry, owner of Bear’s Country Saloon, said he works closely with his two managers, Molly McHenry and Kristin Hamling, to succeed with the new bar. Gentry also owns the Penalty Box and Jaeger, and is co-‐owner of Grabo’s Bar & Grill. McHenry describes Gentry as the perfect boss, and says that he is “full
hands-‐on for teaching us as man-‐ agers and is always positive.” Bear’s Country Saloon is stir-‐ ring up a lot of buzz throughout the UNC campus, especially after their highly successful promo-‐ tional event, Boots and Daisy Dukes, on October 11. The event drew in a lot of people ready to show off their country attitude, and its success is sure to lead to more like it. Although the building is a part of a historic landmark and there is no way for expansion, Bear’s Country Saloon still offers adequate space for country danc-‐ ing. Gentry said that possible remodeling such as putting a taco bar on the outside patio is in the plans. The bar features a wide variety of country-‐themed drinks includ-‐ ing moonshine and their signa-‐ ture drink Grizzly Fire -‐-‐ a shot of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky with a cinnamon candy bear mixed together. The newest bar in Gree-‐ ley’s downtown area has raised high expectations for a night on ϐǤ

Craft Corner with
hen I was 14 years old, I accrued a four foot high stack of teen and women’s magazines in one corner of my bedroom. Two lifelong obsessions took hold of me then: magazines and useless trivia (Did you know that for the number of calories in a Big Mac Value Meal, you could eat 214 straw-‐ berries? Thanks, Teen!). As I’ve matured, the titles have changed. Goodbye to Seventeen,
Cosmo and Teen Vogue. Hello to Popular Science, Women’s Health and Mental Floss. Still, I have this stack of magazines, clutter-‐ ing my space month after month, long after I’ve absorbed their awesome editorial magic. I’ve found a way to take my beloved, color-‐ ful, glossy publications and turn them into useful creations.
Coiled Magazine Coasters What you need: Magazines — you’ll need about 15 for a full coaster (Not from The
Claw! You need us for the rest of these instructions!)
Scissors Clearing-drying glue Paper clip Sealant like Modge Podge (optional, for water proofing)
1 Neatly rip or cut the pages from your magazine. Advertisements are excellent choices, as they tend to be vivid and colorful.
Starting at the jagged edge, fold one page over about a ¼ of an inch. Make four even folds, . After the fourth fold, apply glue to the exposed edge and fold over once more. Each page should make two thin, folded strips. Repeat until you have about 30 strips.
Straighten out the end of the paperclip. Choose one strip that you want to be the center of your coaster and apply a layer of glue all the way down one side. Start coiling the strip around the paperclip to make a tight, small coil. Slide the paperclip out.
Add some glue to the outer edge of your center coil. Place your next strip on the glue and coil it around the center coil.
Repeat until you’ve used all of your strips or you’ve reached a size you like.
Waterproof your coaster with a layer of sealant. If you don’t mind them getting a little wrinkly with use, skip this step.
Bonus idea: if you stop short of a full-sized coaster,

waterproof it to make a soap dish; that’s what I did the first time and it works great. If you use the same coiling technique with a lot of strips, you can make a bowl. Get creative with this idea and watch your clutter vanish and your tables free from rings.
