Student Senate Update Senate completes SFAP, addresses election petition ALEXANDER ARMANI-MUNN Student senate completed the Student Fee Allocation Process Wednesday before voting on a resolution to the Graduate Student Association bylaws and hearing two new resolutions. Student Fee Allocation Process The third and final night of SFAP is historically tedious and in some cases, has kept Senate members in session into the early hours of the morning. Thanks to a pre-

meditated proposal from Faculty Representative Michael Stadler, Senate members were able to complete final delegations on SFAP in less than an hour, a feat that stunned even veteran Senate members. Stadler’s proposal granted groups not requesting increases for fiscal year 2013 the full amount they requested. Of 17 organizations vying for SFAP funding, 11 requested increases, and those 11 groups received 98.75 percent of their requested increases. Stadler’s plan was well

received by members of Senate. The plan allowed Senate to balance the budget with no organization suffering significant cuts. None of the students or faculty representing the various organizations at the session spoke out in opposition to the proposed plan. Stadler’s plan decreased the SFAP allocation’s deficit to a mere $3,007.59. To account for the remaining deficit, Senate decreased its own 2013 SFAP funding by $3,007.59, essentially allowing Senate to break even.

The Student Senate contingency fund also received an unexpected donation from the university’s Finance and Administration Office, which had a surplus amount of funds. The donation brought the contingency fund to the minimum amount of $10,000. Balancing the contingency fund also played a large role in the smooth proceedings of SFAP. Graduate Student Association After completing SFAP, Senate moved into the third reading of a res-

olution to revise GSA bylaws. The resolution will allow GSA presidents to serve a third term at the request of the graduate dean of students or director of Student Activities. Senate had already discussed and reviewed the resolution in the prior two readings and moved to approve the resolution immediately Wednesday night. The resolution had little opposition; however, the language of the resolution was changed to make certain revisions more clear, then passed unanimously.

Resolution to revise Student Affairs bylaws Senate then heard the first reading of a resolution to revise the Student Affairs bylaws. The resolution comes in response to creation of a chalkboard in the Mckee Hall breezeway, which will serve as a public space for students to share their thoughts and aspirations. The resolution will alter the Student Affairs bylaws to allow the director of Student Affairs to monitor and maintain the chalkboard. Discussion on the resolution was postponed until next week. Resolution to revise election petition bylaws Senate then moved into the first reading of a resolution to revise election petition bylaws. Currently, any student interested in running for a position on Senate must compile a petition with 100 student signatures and Bear numbers. The proposed revision would do away with election petitions completely. Senate approved a motion to strike Bear numbers from election petitions, requiring interested candidates to collect only names. Further discussion on the resolution was postponed until next week.

Conducting research enhances students’ academic experience Without question, one of the most thrilling things a student can do is conduct some form of extensive research. Thursday’s Research Day at UNC exemplified the minds of novice scholars to interested attendees; however, all undergraduate students should be encouraged to research a topic appealing to them. If students are to enjoy their educational experience, they should enjoy what they study. Even for a simple five-page research paper, students should find a topic that spikes their individual interests. Students excited about their research —

Mission Statement The Mirror’s mission is to educate, inform and entertain the students, staff and faculty of the UNC community, and to educate the staff on the business of journalism in a college-newspaper environment.

to educate peers. There is something to be said about someone who can intelligently discuss a topic with a clear depth of knowledge. The goal of any university should be to produce scholars: people who can research, write and speak in a manner that furthers human knowledge as a whole. Universities should aim to further human knowledge; to expand the intellect for the betterment of humankind. The only way to expand the human well of knowledge is to pursue research; to think critically to solve a myriad of problems. There is joy in discovery, and

we can discover anything if we research problems. Professors should encourage all their students to discover methods that expand the mind. Additionally, for undergraduates especially, conducting individual research is an enormous asset if they seek an advanced degree like a doctorate. Research is an exhaustive process, and discovering if you like it as an undergraduate — if you want to conduct research as a career—is vital. Indeed, students should strive to be research-driven scholars.

individuals who derive a pleasure in their topic — will produce engaging work. Conversely, the student who writes on a topic lackadaisical to his or her taste will produce a mediocre paper. Many of the students at the University Center Thursday spent months or years on a single topic, diligently breaking ground in new and emerging fields. When a person spends so much time on a single issue, he or she becomes an expert on that topic. With that expertise, the student can synthesize research into factoids


n all fairness, I have not read “The Hunger Games” series entirely. I started out with the first episode, and the fast-paced, teeny-bopper feel had me falling asleep in the first several chapters. I could feel a sense of “Harry Potter”-style adolescence mixed with a vague and uncertain “1984” Orwellian setting. Regardless of my needlessly specific taste, this series is now one of the great cultural waves of American media. During the

opening weekend, “The Hunger Games” made more than $155 million domestically and shattered IMAX sales records. The success of the franchise can hardly be disputed. If you haven’t heard of “The Hunger Games,” you’re probably living under a rock. Regardless of the success of the series, I had my reservations while swallowing the entirety of the film. With a cast including celebrity legends such as Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz and Donald Sutherland, I was expecting a much more memorable picture. However, these icons were placed in cameostyled positions, some with fewer than four or five scenes. It seemed to me as though the originality of the series was dilut-

ed by such a diverse cast, as well. The younger characters, played by Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, among others, were as good as such talent gets; hardly rivaling the awful performances of the “Twilight” gang. My biggest complaint would be the overall execution of the film. Some scenes were specifically high-end in terms of graphics, special effects and sound. Others had me wondering if this was a Disney Channel Original. Shoddy costume design and realistic efforts to make this a believable post-apocalyptic world seemed to be lacking. At one point, shown is an early-century, Great Depression-style District 12 where somehow the style was exactly that of the 1930s. Knowing that this film is set in a

Star Wars-like futuristic time, this was also difficult to understand. Being a huge fan of totalitarian political works such as “1984” and “A Brave New World,” I can honestly say that the movie hardly illustrates the world that is described in the books. Less than scary riot police and kids running around fighting for fortune, fame and honor just didn’t do it for me. Whether or not you have read the books, be sure to check out the film and see what you think. However, if you are a “Harry Potter” junkie hoping for a supplement to the void of said series, don’t get your hopes up. — Benjamin Fuller is a junior economics major and weekly columnist for The Mirror.

Students demonstrate research projects ALEXANDER ARMANI-MUNN Some of UNC’s best and brightest gathered Thursday in the University Center to share a variety of research conducted over the last year. The University of Northern Colorado’s 2012 Research Day was hosted in honor of Academic Excellence Week and included both graduate and undergraduate students. Presentations were conducted from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The University Honors Program, McNair Scholars Program and School of Biological Sciences were all represented in a variety of presentations throughout

the day. Nearly every department was represented by student research from education to history and anthropology to music. Many students used large posters to present their research, but other students conducted oral presentations, as well. For many students, Research Day is the payoff after devoting a year of indepth research. The opportunity to present their

research allows students to evaluate their own work and determine how their study can evolve. “Presenting research offers real-world application,” said Benjamin Lee, a senior biological sciences major who presented a study on the cloning and characterization of immunoglobulin DNA. To conduct his study, Lee cloned DNA from Jamaican fruit bats.


Kimberly Myers (right), a graduate student, explains her research on first generation students and social identity involvement Thursday in the University Center.

“The hardest part was to isolate the antibody sequence in bats and basically get that into E. coli cells,” Lee said. The process of conducting research is often difficult and requires extended patience. Faculty sponsors who assist students in their research are both a source of guidance and support in this process. Senior biology major and first-time research presenter, Jerica Lenberg, cited the redundancy that often occurs in research. “You have to be accurate,” Lenberg said. “It can be repetitive; you realize you made one mistake and you have to go back and fix it.” Senior English major Dylan Carpenter conducted an oral presentation for his honors thesis. The presentation focused on the history of poetry and its effect on both the individual and society. Carpenter, who was first published in the third grade, exhibited a great degree of passion for his chosen topic. “Poetry has been a driving force in my life, a love affair for nearly 20 years,” Carpenter said. “The sad thing is poetry is dying off. Some people think there are more people writing poetry then reading poetry.” Research Day is organized each year by the Office for Undergraduate Research and the Center for Honors, Scholars and Leadership. Students interested in participating in Research Day in the future must apply online at URSA. Applications are generally due in the beginning of March.

Slugger transfers, reunites with old coach SAMANTHA FOX

A strong bat and a leadby-example mentality are only a couple of attributes defining junior outfielder Lindsey Smith. Smith came to UNC’s softball program this season to reconnect with head coach Mark Montgomery, who recruited her to his previous college, Centenary College in Shreveport, La. Smith said Montgomery was the reason she transferred to the University of Northern Colorado. “I loved playing for him at Centenary,” Smith said. “He’s a great coach. He

knows what he’s talking about, so I wanted a chance to play for him again.” Smith had to wait a year before transferring, gaining her associate degree during her season off. Senior outfielder Erin Geddis said it’s not noticeable Smith didn’t play for a year because of the drive Smith had since she started at UNC. “You can tell that she loves this game more than anything,” Geddis said. “Coming back, she knew she wanted to be here. She’s a great outfielder, and I love being out there with her.” Next year, Smith will be in her final year and

will take on a tion next year.” leadership role.

Texas,” Montgomery said. “She played on a great travel ball team. Defensively, (she) was probably overlooked a little bit, but I knew we could grow her in that area. I just had never seen a more pure left-handed power hitter that always seemed composed, always hit with confidence.” Smith had to transition from playing first and second base to playing in the outfield at UNC. The transition took some adjustments, but she has been very solid in the grass. This season, Smith has only three errors with a .938 fielding percentage. At the plate, Smith has a .384 batting average with eight home runs, 12 dou-

bles, 37 RBIs and 19 runs this season. According to Geddis, Smith doesn’t let anything affect her game during play. “She never gets down,” Geddis said. “She always has a smile on her face. She doesn’t carry her atbats to where she goes. You never see her going from her bat out to defense. She’s frustrated but she’s never, ever down. The only time you can ever tell that something’s getting to her is when she’s thinking and you can see it on her face. That’s the only other emotion you can see when it comes to softball, besides her smile.”

Versatility key component for baseball senior GRANT EVANS

Baseball players know how a grueling and marathon-like NCAA Division-I baseball schedule can take a physical and mental toll on them. Coaches look for players they can depend on day-in and day-out, and UNC head baseball coach Carl Iwasaki has at least

one such player. Senior captain, infielder and right-handed pitcher Casey Coy can be called the University of Northern Colorado’s “Mr. Dependable.” In Coy’s four years as a Bear, he has played in 122 games and last season played in 55 of 56 games. Coy said it is his versatility that has allowed him to be such a big part of the baseball program at UNC.

to play every “Being able day but is also to pitch and play infield has given performing well me a lot of every day, and Coy is no opportunities stranger to putover the years,” ting together Coy said. “I take a lot of pride in great seasons. Last season, being able to do whatever it is Casey Coy Coy hit .306 the team needs with 57 hits, 10 me to be successful and doubles, two home runs win.” and 29 RBIs. Coming into Being dependable is this season, Coy’s career not only about being able batting average was .304.

“I want my senior year to end on a high note,” Coy said. “We have high expectations around here, and I want to make sure I leave everything on the field, give it my all and make sure I have a positive attitude with everything.” Coy is an earth science major with an emphasis in secondary education. He said he hopes to become a high school science teacher and baseball

coach after he graduates in May. Iwasaki said he has no doubt that Coy has a bright future ahead of him. “You can’t say enough about Casey and his work ethic on and off the field,” Iwasaki said. “He was voted one of the team’s captns by his teammates, and he has earned it. I am not worried about Casey and his future. He will make a great teacher and coach one day.”

The sophomore was victorious in doubles and singles play Sunday at Montana State. In No. 4 singles play, Catlin won in a tiebreaker, 6-2, 0-6, 7-6 (7-4). Catlin's singles victory gives her an 18-6 record overall and is 9-1 in her past ten matches.

Student ambassador receives Employee of the Year award


Stacie Slater receives a runner-up award for her work in the information technology department Wednesday in the Pikes Peak Ballrooms. KELSEY HAMMON UNC student employees were recognized for their hard work and dedication to the university in the second annual Student Employee of the Year award ceremony Wednesday in Pikes Peak

Ballroom in the University Center. Garrett Spradlin, a junior journalism major, took home the Student Employee of the Year award for his work as a student ambassador. “I’m really honored,” Spradlin said. “I love this university and working with the

admissions. It has given me the chance to work with multiple departments at UNC.” This year, 31 students were nominated by their employers for the award with four runner-ups. They were Stephanie Becker, Ashleigh Britt, Vince Seelbach and Stacie Slater. The ceremony was hosted by the Student Employee of the Year committee, and all nominees received prizes that included items from Bear Logic, a trophy, Bear Bucks, gift cards and a T-shirt. “Nominees also receive self-esteem for winning this awesome award,” said Aimee Rogers, the director of Student Employment. Cynthia Harling, an administrative assistant for Student Employment, said all the students nominated were worthy of the recognition. “The award is a way of recognizing students’ hard work and achievement while working for a UNC organization,” Harling said. “Students who were nominated showed reli-

The event was held in celebration of Academic Excellence Week and coordinated by the tutoring honor society, Sigma Tau Sigma, which utilizes tutoring as an opportunity to gain volunteer and teaching experience. Before joining,

students must complete 30 credit hours with a minimum 3.0 GPA. “As a volunteer honor society, we’re here to make the community a bit nicer,” said Diego Alcala, a senior

Though the information may have been directed to students in honors programs, the ice cream was available to everyone. “It’s good advertising and a good workout for those who are working the ice cream scoop,” said Gwendolyn McIrvin, a junior education major.

ability, dependability and community involvement.” Yearly winners of the award are entered into a national contest, in which they could win a scholarship from the National Student Employment Administration. “We really appreciate what you do, said” Tobias Guzman, the University of Northern Colorado’s enrollment manager, to the students in attendance. Guzman recalled his days working for the front desk in the residence halls when he was in college. He remembers the job teaching him the importance of discipline and customer service. “Our student staff is one of the determinants of college success,” Guzman said.

“Student employees understand better than anyone else the problems or concerns inquiring students may have.” Britt was nominated for her work in UNC’S tech center. “I’m going to hang my trophy above my door so I can see it in the morning,” Britt said. Harling said the stu-

dents’ assistance to the university cannot be understated. “Many UNC departments couldn’t function without its student work force,” she said. “They are the reason we continue to thrive and the reason we can accomplish so much. Their contributions are definitely appreciated.”

SHC encourages students to interact within the university Honors Social from Page 6 Along with Sigma Tau Sigma, other honors societies attended the event including the Student Honors Council and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. These societies focus on

giving students the most out of their college experience. For example, STS requires their members to participate in community service but also give socializing and network opportunities. “Most of our opportuni-

ties are for honors students,” said Mariah Brothe, a senior anthropology major and president of the SHC. “Specifically, we offer them opportunities to de-stress and socialize.” The SHC is a leadership

program for students who are already a part of UNC’s honors program. It attempts to recruit new students and help current students discuss the most effective ways to interact with the university. SHC offers a number of

resources for students to help plan after college, including networking with UNC alumni from the honors program. Raven Krueger, one of the council’s vice presidents, coordinates relations between current honors stu-

dents and alumni. The NSCS is a society for students in the top 20 percent of their class with at least a 3.6 GPA. This society provides support and scholarship opportunities for high achieving students.
