University, organizations help students find financial aid CARMEN BRADY There is no denying that going to a university is not cheap, particularly with recent cuts in state funding. However, UNC students don’t have to pay for it completely out of pocket, which was the focus of the Scholarship Fair Tuesday. The event was hosted by the Office of Financial Aid, but that was not the only office represented at the fair. All of the colleges at the University of Northern Colorado had booths, as well as the Women’s Resource Center, the Honors Program, the Center for International Education, the Graduate School and the American

Cancer Society. Each booth had information on what scholarships were available to students and a representative to answer questions. The Office of Financial Aid had a booth with information on the universal scholarship application as well as information on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Both applications provide opportunities for financial aid, but from different places. “The FAFSA is government support,” said Nancy Gray, the scholarship director at the Office of Financial Aid. “That will give you funds such as loans and grants. The universal scholarship application

is through the university.” Gray said it is important for students to submit each application by their shared priority deadline of March 1. “The FAFSA requires students to have tax information for themselves and, if they are younger than 23, their parents,” Gray said. “But these can be estimates; it’s better to go in and give an estimate and correct it later.” Loree Crow, the associate director for the Honors Program, said it was important to make sure students are knowledgeable about scholarships as soon as they enter the university. “The Center for Honors, Scholars and Leadership offers a lot of opportunities,

and it’s best to get involved as soon as you start going here to take full advantage of them,” Crow said. “I think that holds true for scholarships in general — the sooner you get them, the more likely you are to keep getting them.” Danielle Colwell, the community relationship manager with the American Cancer Society, said students should be aware of opportunities outside of what the school has to offer, such as those through the organization she was representing. “We provide scholarships to cancer survivors, which isn’t related to academics exactly,” Colwell said. “And there are other opportunities

out there for students.” Gray said students are welcome to visit the OFA with any questions they have about scholarships, the uni-

versal application or FAFSA. “You can make an appointment or walk in,” Gray said. “We are here to help.”

Honors workshop gives rundown of IRB theses ALEXANDER ARMANI-MUNN Honors students at UNC had the opportunity to take an in-depth look at what is required for their honors theses through an Institutional Review Board

workshop Monday. The workshop was led by Michael Kimball, the director of Honors, Scholars and Leadership, and was open to students completing thesis work in the University Honors Program. An honors thesis is an

independent research project honors students are required to complete prior to graduation. For many, the research involved in an honors thesis requires the study of living subjects, such as animals or humans. To conduct research involving live subjects, students must receive IRB approval. The IRB is present at most research universities throughout the country. An IRB generally consists of faculty members and, occasionally, well-informed community members. IRB members are responsible for examining students’ proposed research methods before giving it university approval. The IRB recognizes three types of research approval: exempt, expe-

dited and full board. Exempt approvals apply to research that does not disrupt or manipulate participants’ normal experiences or incorporates intrusive procedures. Research that qualifies as “exempt” requires approval of a co-chair member of the IRB and is valid for four years. The review generally takes two to three weeks. Expedited research poses a minimal risk to subjects. The probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort anticipated during the research is no greater than in experiences ordinarily encountered in daily life or routine examinations. Expedited review requires the approval of an IRB member and IRB co-chair and is valid for one year. The approval See Honors, Page 4

Women foremost opinion on birth control ease, accessibility The regulation of birth control is a mere etch in the line that parts Americans and social amity. The argument lies in the morality of the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. Every month, a woman’s body begins a process that results in the maturation of an egg. If a man’s semen reaches a woman’s egg during intercourse, the result is a fertilized egg inside her uterus. Contraceptives are designed to stop the egg from ever fertilizing, thus controlling whether a woman

but as much as birth control affects women, it was men who dominated these discussions by almost a 2:1 ratio. According to, these top news broadcasters invited 146 guests, 55 of whom were women, to discuss contraception. Ninety-one men were featured in the debates concerning birth control, a system heeding the bodies of women. Birth, a woman’s treasure, has not surpassed the grips of today’s patriarchy. Rather than asking for women’s voices, CNN,

MSNBC and Fox News assumed men would have more tenable opinions about women’s bodies. Women, who would know how difficult access to birth control is, how much it costs and what the effect of Obama’s mandate would ensue, were considered invalid even when they were the center of the topic. A woman’s opinion on contraception should be broadcasted in an even environment in order for voters to understand American women’s experiences as contraceptive users or non-contraceptive users.

becomes pregnant. Some cry genocide while others moralize contraceptives as family planning. Leading cable news channels in the nation have given particular wind to the debate since Aug. 1 of last year, the day President Barack Obama mandated that health insurance companies offer free birth control as part of the Affordable Care Act. Today, the argument still boils. Last week CNN, MSNBC and Fox News hosted debates on the topic of contraceptives,

to a study by race-sports author Richard Lapchick. The game is expanding to all corners of the world, though, and is growing rapidly in Asia, where several players competed during the lockout. The two Asian players that would have readily come to mind a couple weeks ago were Yi Jianlian and, of course, Yao Ming, both taller than seven feet. In steps Jeremy Lin, a 6foot-3 benchwarming point guard for the New York Knicks. Filling in for a depleted (and frankly, under-talented) Knicks backcourt, Lin has absolutely shined, averaging 28.3 points and 8.3 assists over the last five games going into Tuesday, all wins, and four of which he started in. However, unlike Yi and Yao, Lin is not an import to the United States. He grew

up near Stanford and attended Harvard, which is great pedigree for a rocket scientist, but is generally quite the opposite when searching for someone to run the pick-and-roll. Some in the basketball community and beyond have made a big deal about Lin’s race, considering Asians are grossly under-represented in the NBA. There have been some positive responses, from proud Asian people and progressives of all skin tones. Unfortunately there have been some negative reactions, as well, most notably from boxer Floyd Mayweather and Fox Sports contributor Jason Whitlock, regarding Lin’s race as the main cause of his recent media attention and popularity. According to Lin, he experienced some of the same senti-

ments from opposing fans and even players during his time in college, so this is nothing new. I suppose racism is somewhat common when someone is successful representing a minority in his or her field, but that does not make it any less disappointing. If Americans placed less emphasis on skin color and more emphasis on culture and people, we would be able to take a step back and appreciate the accomplishments of others. It’s time for us to grow up as fans and as people to shift the focus from the race of the players to the beauty of the game they play. — Michael Nowels is a sophomore elementary education major and weekly columnist for The Mirror.

Valentines show love in creative way, support SHC DANNY GROSS Love filled the University Center as students created colorful cards for their loved ones and supported the Student Honors Council at the “Make Your Own Valentine” station Tuesday. SHC hosted the valentine-making station to raise funds for the program’s social functions and trips. SHC is a group comprised of honors students who coordinate events, community service projects and recruitment ventures for the Honors Program. “I think it’s a really cute idea,” said Amber Rey, the co-vice president of Social

Affairs for SHC. “It’s really not one of our biggest money-maker fundraisers, but we’re doing it more for the students then our personal money gain.” Members sold carnations and chocolates as well as crafts students could use to make their own unique Valentine’s Day card. SHC also took preorders for handmade cards in which council members took it upon themselves to design. “We thought that Valentine’s Day is a pretty good day to do any type of fundraising because people are trying to buy things for their sweethearts or trying to be clever, like with a secret admirer,” said Raven

Krueger, SHC’s vice president of alumni relations and an English major. “So we figured we’d have something where it was affordable and they could make a card without having to go to the store and buy one, and they could have their own little saying in it.” In keeping with the average college student’s budget, each item for sale was only $1. Students used construction paper, crayons and markers as well as an abundance of other craft supplies to create their own unique way of saying “Be mine.” “We were going to do glitter but we figured that might be a little too messy,” Krueger said. “We decided to hold off on that ‘til another time.”

Because of the dangers of glitter, the SHC found a safer option, glitter markers, for the students to bedazzle their valentine creations. The most common card forms were hearts made of pink and red paper, although some students went for more risque designs like lips to make their message clear to their significant others. “I think it’s amazing because for broke college students like myself, we can still do something for someone we love, and it’s not super expensive,” said Lacey Schwartz, a freshman pre-nursing major “I am making a heart for my boyfriend that I’ve been with for five years.”

Students learn IRB research process Honors from Page 2 process takes three to four weeks. Full-board research methods are personally intrusive or have the potential to produce stress beyond what is likely to be encountered by the subjects in daily life. Fullboard review requires the approval of the entire IRB and is valid for one year. Approval takes four to six weeks. Students applying for IRB

approval are required to receive informed consent from research subjects. Informed consent ensures the subject is fully aware of the research procedures he or she is agreeing to and he or she is welcome to opt out of research at any time. “The IRB looks very closely at (research) methods,” Kimball said. “(Students) must be clear and explicit in their application.” The IRB takes several

aspects into consideration. First, who are the subjects, and are they part of a vulnerable population? What are the student’s methods for data collection, and how will they affect the subjects? How is the student analyzing and using the data, and does analysis post any threat to subjects? Finally, how is the student handling and storing data, and will a subject’s private information be vulnerable? Kendra Owsley, a senior interdisciplinary studies major, said she is planning to work with children for her honors thesis. Owsley has not yet determined her exact research methods, but it is likely she will observe and interact with children, a population the IRB considers vulnerable, and will likely be required to apply for exempt approval.

IFS makes lesser known films available to students SARAH KIRBY Every week, UNC students have the opportunity to see international cinema captured by Golden Globe, Sundance and other foreign award-winning directors. The University of Northern Colorado’s International Film Series recently announced its film lineup for the spring semester. Films are shown Wednesdays at 7 p.m. and Thursdays at 7 and 9:15 p.m. in Lindou Auditorium, located in the bottom of Michener Library. All films are free to UNC and Aims students. Films are $3 for community members and UNC faculty and staff. Non-English-language films are shown in the origi-

nal language with English subtitles. Kenneth Chan, an associate professor of film studies and IFS faculty adviser, discussed the IFS cinematic experience. “[Students] get to watch films that they will not get to see at the average Cineplex,” Chan said. “Cinema viewing can also be a social experience. Coming together with friends to see films at the IFS helps encourage this aspect of the filmic experience. Furthermore, we try our best to bring films that have yet to be made available on DVD.” With titles expanding across the globe, each IFS film captures a new multicultural perspective. In “Circumstance,” generations clash when Middle Eastern culture brushes up against homosexual identity

and women’s rights. Other films, such as “Le Havre” from Finland, discuss immigration issues and civil war in Africa. Roxanne Greg, a junior accounting major, is excited about the price of IFS films. “It’s free, I mean how can you not love that?” Greg said. “Every time I view an IFS film, I gain a new understanding of cultures and locals. I’ve used the films as an extra learning tool, one that has supplemented my curriculum in several of the humanities courses I’ve taken at UNC. These films are not fluff. They capture contemporary social issues in innovative ways.” Not only does IFS pride itself on showing culturally diverse films that are noted cinematic award winners, but IFS is also excited to announce that

there will be guest appearances this semester. Documentary director Ellen Weiss will talk on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. after the screening of her film, “A Woman Like That,” which narrates the 17th-century female painter Artemisia Gentileschi’s provocative work and dramatic life. In collaboration with the 2012 Oscar Shorts, Weld County filmmaker Rob Walker will discuss his experiences at the 2011 Philadelphia Film and Animation Awards on Feb. 22-23 at 7 p.m. A screening of his animated short films will follow. Shannon Sproston, student director of IFS and a senior composition and anthropology major, mentioned some of the other co-sponsorships happening this semester.


Stu Maddux’s documentary “Gen Silent” deals with how elderly homosexuals face discrimination. The film with be shown as part of IFS on April 4 and 5. “I’m a bit of a film nut, so I jumped at the opportunity to apply for student director when it became available,” Sproston said. “IFS will be working with the newly established Gerontology Club and the GLBTA Resource Office to screen a new documentary titled ‘Gen Silent,’ which concerns

homosexual in the elderly.” The penultimate film, “Korkoro,” will coincide with the Holocaust Memorial Observance Committee. IFS is a volunteer-based, student-run and studentfunded organization. For more information about films, check out

PVA drama’s cast captures sadness in realistic manner KATIE PLASEK “Dancing at Lughnasa” centers on tension — tension among sisters, between religions and throughout the outside world. These conflicts, which are shown most plainly through the expressive faces of the sisters, keep the play moving not forward but downward in an inexorable spiral. Maggie, played with goofy grace by Abby Ritt, is the glue of the family and keeps the show, as

well as her sisters, together with her charming riddles and spontaneous dancing and singing. She is not, however, simply a cheerful woman; Ritt portrays her with great depth, showing the pain of betrayal and lost love through an open expression, showing more in her eyes than any words she could express. The rest of the sisters need Maggie’s glue as their characters develop and disintegrate. Agnes (Kayla Reynolds) and Rose (Erika Vetter) have a special connection that is

immediately felt and appreciated. Rose, with her bouncing curls, is given a childlike innocence by Vetter. Her trusting impetuosity creates a bright discordance within the house. As motherly Agnes, Reynolds gently but firmly brings Rose back to reality time and again. Agnes’ worry about Rose is compounded by an unknown anxiety that shows through the continual tensing of Reynolds’ body. It is as if she is just hanging in her world, waiting for the

worst to find her. Kate, played by Malloree Hill, also worries for Rose and keeps her tension close in her body; however, she is also set apart from the others not only by her demeanor but also in her clothing. As a schoolteacher, Kate is attired in a charcoal gray pencil skirt and matching sweater, whereas her sisters are dressed in pastel gingham dresses and aprons. Hill generates an air of pride and relentless sensibility for Kate through her carriage and voice.

Chris, the last sister (Malorie Felt), is opposite of Kate in her temperament and portrayal. Felt lights up the stage when she enters, most especially when dancing, which she does often. Pure joy bursts forth from her eyes when she smiles and creates an enchanting sense of peace and hope that she holds not only for herself but for her young son, Michael (Chandler Darby), and the man she loves, Gerry (Chris Jones). These remarkable women act out their joys and sorrows in the mini-

mal, yet realistic set (there were real water spills from the sink) designed by Zachary Keller. This simple realism places the audience in the kitchen of the Mundy house. Keller’s layout, from the ironing board, to the kitchen table, to the sink, to the stove, creates a circular patter to the scene, fitting for the dancing and action. As these women circle round and round the center stove, so do their lives circle round and round, See Characters, Page 7

Swimming & diving team has high hopes for MPSF Championships SAMANTHA FOX

The UNC swimming and diving team begins the final stretch of its season with competition in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Swimming and Diving Championships today in Los Angeles and Colorado Springs.

The University of Northern Colorado swimmers will begin at East Los Angeles Community College, and the team is hoping to finish in the same spot as last year or improve. “We’ve got one new team coming in this year, and that’s BYU, so that gives us 10 teams,” head coach Kelly McClanahan

said. “So if we score anything less than sixth place that means we’ve failed a spot this year and that is not my goal. I want to either maintain or move up.” The Bears’ team in the 200 medley consists of sophomores Courtney Van Oost, Renee Stephens and Christina Gregory and senior JJ Smith, who

holds the top time in the relay with 1 minute, 45.87 seconds, which was set against Air Force. The relay team is currently ranked fifth in conference. Smith said she is hoping to break school records in this final meet, including the relay times. “Looking at my times last year, I’m about a sec-

ond or so off the 100 (meter) and also with the 50, so if I can get that, being injured and everything, that would be awesome,” Smith said. “Also, a couple of the relay records. We got a couple last year, and we can hopefully break those again and get the last two that we need.” After the medleys,

McClanahan said the team’s biggest strengths in competition are in the back, individual medley, breaststroke and freestyle. The breaststroke doesn’t begin until Friday, but freestyle and IM preliminaries begin Thursday. See S&D, Page 7

Characters release tension PVA Drama from Page 5 until none seem to know where they started from in the beginning. This dissolution completes the transformation of Norton Theatre into the Mundy’s kitchen. Those at the show cannot help but become sucked into the tangle, passion and heartbreak of these sisters’ lives. A small yet integral subplot for the show involves Father Jack (Kytt McLaughlin), the uncle of the sisters. A longtime minister in Africa who has only recently returned to his home in Ireland, Father Jack is an

intriguing part of the play. Played with bright-eyed sensitivity by McLaughlin, he serves as a sweet contrast to trials and tribulations of the girls. Seen most often pacing in a worn but clean cardigan, Father Jack lights up the stage in his own way through the telling of stories and offering advice. The most memorable scene of the play was also the only of complete joy and abandon. Bookended on both sides by a tense moment among the sisters, the unquenchable Maggie, eyes sparkling like a mischievous imp, smears her face with

flour and begins twirling about the kitchen, yelping and hollering, letting go of the tension and fear and pain she held inside for so long. Soon, all the sisters have joined her, dancing to the music of their beloved radio, spinning and shrieking like women without a care in the world. The sheer energy and unbridled ecstasy of these few moments is breathtaking. When the music stops and the sisters halt, there is a palpable sense of loss hovering through the theater. The play will be presented today through Feb.18 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 19 at 2 p.m.
