hough the second weekend of the Austin City Limits music festival was cut short by unexpected flooding at Zilker Park, the event was filled with local food, loud music and thousands of dedicated fans. The festival’s second weekend kick-off featured performances by Vampire Weekend, Fun. and Arctic Monkeys last Friday. The Zilker park grounds did not start filling up with guests until around 7 p.m. that night. “It’s just too damn hot to get here while the sun is out and about,” said one late-arriving patron in the crowd. Arctic Monkeys, who took the stage as the sun began to set over Zilker, were met with a crowd that stretched halfway through the park. Alex Turner, the band’s frontman, remarked that Austin’s sense of hospitality was one of the reasons the group enjoyed playing at ACL. “You’re very kind, you Texans,” Turner told the audience Friday, combing his hair off his head, greaserstyle, as the women in the crowd screamed. ACL patron Jabari Dabney said he was so impressed by Arctic Monkeys’ upbeat and animated show that he wanted to buy their album when he got home that night. When the park closed for the evening following Muse’s performance, many headed downtown to take in ACL-sponsored after shows that took place in various bars and music clubs. Wilco, Junip and Savages all played

ALKEK

Library begins updating furniture, technology By Rebecca Banks News Reporter

New furnishings and technology features are expected to be available in the Alkek Library by the end of the semester as part of the first of several phases of renovations. Joan Heath, associate vice president and university librarian, said four prototype areas in the library

will be used as a way to test the new furnishings and technologies to ensure larger scale projects will be successful in the future. Changes to the alcove area near the staircase on the second floor will be one of the prototypes. Two rooms on the fourth floor will also be equipped with tables with flats screen monitors and other

late-night concerts, though tickets were sold out long before the performances. Saturday saw the weekend’s biggest crowd of around 75,000 guests. In addition to the 43 acts performing that day, art exhibits and merchandise stalls were set up along the park’s perimeter for guests to peruse between shows. Several band members, including WALK THE MOON and Portugal. The Man, signed autographs and took photos with fans in a booth sponsored by Austinbased Waterloo Records. WALK THE MOON frontman Nicholas Petricca said one of his favorite parts of ACL was getting to meet the band’s fans, adding that he would love to meet everyone personally if he could. Electro-indie pop band Passion Pit took the stage at sunset to the excitement of the large crowd. Homemade flags and banners poked through the top of the crowd, bearing logos of bands, college mascots and inscrutable messages like “Poke-a-hot-ass.” After their set, the Passion Pit crowd merged seamlessly with the group waiting to see rapper Kendrick Lamar. Lamar’s show was host to some of the most excitable fans at the festival. Many fans in the crowd sang along loudly to hits such as “Swimming Pools” and “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.” Lamar looked notably happy to be performing, an energy not lost on his devoted fans. An interpreter took the stage alongside Lamar, signing his lyrics so that hearing impaired concertgoers could enjoy the music too.

THEATRE

Box office manager hired for new Performing Arts Center By Kelsey Bradshaw News Reporter

A former employee at the award-winning Kansas City Starlight Theatre will serve as Texas State’s first box office manager for the new Performing Arts Center set to open in February. Robert Styer recently left his job as box office manager of the Starlight Theatre for the open position at Texas State this spring. Styer said a box office manager’s job is to oversee ticket sales and ensure operations run smoothly from the time audience members arrive until they take their seats for the shows. Styer is originally from the Dallas/Fort Worth area and has been selling tickets since his first job in 1991 at “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” Styer said he viewed the Texas State website one day and knew the box office manager position was

for him. The atmosphere, the growing city and the “amazing” school system were all pull factors, he said. “It was time to come home,” Styer said. “My family is here and my wife and I are very family-oriented.” Styer his vision for the theatre is simple—to make it as fun as possible. He said he wants the theatre to be nice, classic, professional and student-driven. “The best part of my job is there are no negatives,” Styer said. “I get paid to make sure people have a good time, and what is better than that?” Joey Martin, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communication, said picking Styer for the position was an easy decision. Martin said Styer had the most experience out of 58 applicants who applied and was able to work as a team player. “It is crucial that we work

together,” Martin said. The new Performing Arts Center will work the same way a professional theatre does, Martin said. Martin said three new positions were added to the Performing Arts Center staff. These positions include box office manager, operations manager and a lighting supervisor. Students, staff and community members will be able to order tickets online to print out or view on their cell phones, Martin said. The new theatre is equipped with trap doors, a fly system, classrooms and dressing areas. The theatre will not only be used for productions. There will be a separate room serving as a recital hall, Martin said. Chelsi Jump, musical theatre freshman, said she is excited about the building and the new box office manager. She said the new box office

#Refugeefest2013

The festival took steps to ensure the safety of the park and its surrounding area. Plastic water bottles were not available for purchase at the park. Instead, CamelBak filling stations dotted the grounds and paper boxes of water were for sale. The park was kept clean and free of trash by the event’s staff, volunteers and festival patrons. The event organized a program for festival guests that allowed them to receive a free ACL T-shirt in exchange for filling a trash bag with recyclables found on park grounds. Guests were encouraged to either ride bicycles to the concerts or take the free ACL shuttle that picked up patrons from downtown Austin.

High-waisted shorts, crop-tops and flower “halos” were popular looks for festivalgoing women. Katie McLendon, fashion merchandising senior, said 60s- and 70sstyle clothing is a common aesthetic for music festivals. Some patrons said their main goal was to stay cool despite the weekend’s hot temperatures. Footwear options were diverse, ranging from Dr. Martens to Birkenstocks. Some bucked shoes altogether, opting to brave Zilker Park barefoot. ACL patron Katelyn Lopez said she chose to wear simple dresses to beat the heat along with oxford flats to save her feet from being stepped on in big crowds. “The goal was to look minimally cute,” Lopez said, laughing. “I didn’t want to get too complex because I knew I’d get sweaty and regret it.”

The festival featured exclusively local food options. Popular Austin eateries like P. Terry’s, Stubb’s BBQ and Tiff’s Treats had long lines of patrons snaking through the field. ACL patron Michelle Rios said she was pleasantly surprised the businesses did not hike their prices up for the festival. “At big events, everything is usually so expensive,” Rios said. “I’m glad the restaurants are using their in-store prices.” One of the most popular food options was Kimchi fries at Chi’Lantro, a Korean-Mexican fusion eatery. “If you didn’t get them, you didn’t do ACL right,” Rios said about the Kimchi fries. Chilled wine served in sports bottles was a frequently purchased item at ACL. Bearing the logo #WineNot, patrons were able to choose between a cold bottle of red or white for $24 a piece.

Although Sunday’s performances were canceled due to flooding at the park, several artists sought out venues to play at that evening in downtown Austin. Dubbed “Refugee Fest” by Twitter users, this impromptu festival featured Atoms for Peace, Noah and the Whale and GROUPLOVE. Multiple artists, including Phoenix, dropped by where other bands were playing to give fans an extra surprise. Fans found out about the shows mainly through social media, spreading the information through Facebook and Twitter. Patrons used the hashtag #RefugeeFest2013.

Jump said the addition of a box office manager will be beneficial to the community and Texas State’s theatre program. “It prepares us for the real world and lets us get a feel of what it will be like when we are working as professional actors,” Jump said. Everything about the new theatre is meant to meet the artistic needs of the students, Martin said. He said it was specifically designed for productions and recitals. Texas State’s theatre, dance and music programs are continuing to grow and the new building is a great step for the university, Martin said.

“Texas State will continue to grow, and I really want to be a part of that,” Styer said.

Danielle Charles | Staff Photographer Alkek Library will be adding furniture designed to work in group settings and new technolgy including video conference rooms.

ALKEK, continued from front new technology. “The Alkek Library opened in May 1990,” Heath said. “There has been gradual changes, and we still have a lot of the original furniture from when we opened over 20 years (ago).” Heath said the library is in the process of ordering new furnishings and forms of technology such as video conferencing and large flat screen monitors. The new furniture will include chairs with soft upholstery, smaller tables and pieces with wheels. The new furniture is designed to be more flexible and allow students to work individually or pull tables together in a group setting, Heath said. The second and fourth floor of the Alkek Library will showcase the prototype furniture, she said, and the two rooms on the fourth floor will provide video conferencing. The second floor will have three tables with a large flat screen at one end and access to the Internet. “We’re ordering this right now, and I expect these prototype furnishings to be in before the end of this semester sometime,” Heath said. Carl Van Wyatt, vice president of Information Technology, said the library needs to upgrade its infrastructure such as air conditioners and complete phase one of the planning process before renovations begin. Phase one includes the four different prototype areas and a café on the second floor of the library, Wyatt said. Heath said all prototype areas are expected to be available in the spring 2014 semester. “Between the infrastructure and phase one, we’re talking about $12.5 million

worth of project funds,” Wyatt said. Wyatt said library officials have raised $1 million in private donations and will hold fundraisers to increase donations in the next year to year and a half. “We’re trying to raise money from private donations, and we have had some pretty good success at that thus far,” Wyatt said Barbara Breier, vice president of University Advancement, said the $1 million in donations came from about four different donors. “We try to identify potential donors who would have an interest in the library,” Breier said. “So, it’s a question of just trying to align donors’ interests around the importance of the library to the overall academic mission of the institutions.” Wyatt said an increase in library fees might be an option in the future to help finish the project. There has not been a library fee increase in seven years, he said. “At this point, I think it’s too premature to know how much that need will be and whether or not it will require a fee increase,” Wyatt said. According to the Tuition and Fee Definitions provided by Student Business Services, the library fee is currently $10 per credit hour included in each student’s tuition. “That library fee helps support primarily the collection development,” Wyatt said. “A big portion of our collection development funding comes from student fees.” Library staff will monitor the usage of the prototype furnishings and new technologies once they are installed, Heath said.

THE MAIN POINT

Healthy options attainable for Bobcats

F

or many students, college is the first time they will be away from home for any significant amount of time. When living with their parents, some students have no option but to eat healthy, well-balanced diets. In college, however, there are no parents to loom behind when students pick out what to eat. Overwhelmed with their newfound freedom, many freshmen may choose to eat pizza every day for two weeks straight, go through a pint of ice cream nightly or engage in otherwise unhealthy eating habits. While it is difficult, students should resist the temptation to gorge on unhealthy food and stay mindful of their health when choosing what to eat. If students do not keep up with their eating habits, the freshman 15 can quickly escalate into the senior 50. Del Taco every night may seem like a good idea when students are busy with school, work and social habits, but in the end the extra weight will only hurt them. The stereotype of the beerguzzling, pizza-worshipping college student does not need to be true. However, if students want to live that kind of lifestyle, they must live with the bulging beer-belly that will inevitably follow. In fact, the stereotypical college diet does not match up with another, more ubiquitous college stereotype— the broke university student.

Students can get more bang for their buck, both in quantity and quality, by making healthy food choices. Students should not feel like they are condemned to pudginess just because they are in college. There are plenty of healthy, affordable options for students both on and off campus. Junk food is expensive, and is lacking nutritionally. Instead of spending money on junk food, students should buy healthy groceries from HEB or the local farmers market. It is significantly cheaper for students to make their own meals rather than buying food from restaurants or fast food joints. If students cannot be bothered to make their own meals, there are many fast options such as healthy frozen meals available. If students have enough money to eat junk food nightly, they can afford to eat well. There is no excuse for students to eat poorly when healthy food is affordable, readily available and easy to make. If students struggle to afford their own healthy food, there is aid such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program food stamps, which can help students purchase healthy groceries. Alternately, if students live on campus and have a meal plan, they should opt for healthy options like salads or homestyle meals from Commons instead of Panda Express or Pizza Hut. The Chartwells

website has nutrition information for all the dining establishments on campus, enabling students to know precisely what they are putting into their bodies. Making simple changes like limiting soda intake or avoiding heavy dressings and other condiments can help students stay healthy. Being healthy does not always have to be about making drastic changes. Little things like opting out or limiting drinking at parties and choosing to drink water with meals instead of soda can help students stay fit and avoid packing on the extra pounds. Students do not need to give up unhealthy foods altogether. Eating a bag of chips every now and then will not completely wreck a student’s health. Students can do other things such as hitting the gym in an attempt to stay in shape. It is not possible to out-exercise a bad diet, but staying active cannot hurt. The freshman 15 does not have to be inevitable. Students have plenty of healthy options available to them, if they are willing to commit to a lifestyle change.

GOOD HABITS

Successful students balance academics, social life

Alexis Aguirre Opinions Columnist Journalism freshman

ollege students should strive Cbetween to find the perfect balance having fun, learning and implementing limits in order to succeed both socially and academically.

The allure of being a typical wild, carefree college student is too strong. Without nagging parents or other concerned family members, many students might be tempted to sleep through class and party every night. Nothing is better than Doritos Locos Tacos at 3 a.m. after a long night of partying, but students really should be focusing on their school work. These are the stories that make college a memorable experience— but there is a fine line between having fun and partying so hard students’ education is put at risk. While many look down upon the typical college-party stereotype, students should not entirely avoid parties and other kinds of irresponsible fun altogether. Some

students take advantage of the fact mom and dad are not around and just do whatever they want with no regard for their education, but it does not have to be that way. College is for education and professional exploration and for students to explore their newfound freedom—have fun and make mistakes. Partying is a part of that. Students can party and keep up with their education at the same time. I spent my first couple of nights on campus keeping to myself and never leaving my dorm. I was still in the mindset that I was not allowed to go out after a certain time and coming in late would get me in trouble. But staying in every night watching Netflix and doing

homework for the next month out of boredom is not what college life is about. Learning in college goes beyond boring lectures and survey classes. It is also a time of freedom and exploration. I am not saying students should get drunk and make out with random strangers every night, but staying in being good little boys and girls is not right either. College students need to find a harmony between fun, wild nights and studying for Monday’s exam. I am not anyone’s mom, and I am not going to preach about the dangers of alcohol, sex and drugs. This is college—not everything will be parent-approved. It is expected students will occasionally do some cringe-worthy or dangerous

SOCIAL MEDIA

Texas State Confessions page promotes negative interactions

James Soto Opinions Columnist English senior

lthough many may find the “Texas A State Confessions” Facebook page helpful, or at worst a harmless source

of entertainment, it promotes negativity and students should not waste their time reading it. The idea behind “Texas State Confessions” is that students can anonymously submit confessions to a moderator who then decides whether or not to post them to the public page. It is completely anonymous, and amusing or entertaining submissions are given preference. When I first checked out the page, my curiosity was piqued. Some of the posts were funny, ridiculing particular people or organizations. Fraternities and sororities remain a popular target. The serious type of confessions typically speak of those who are overwhelmed, lonely and fearing an uncertain future. I found myself going to the page quite often for a few weeks. Students who frequently visit the page tend to fall into three categories. The first are those who use the page purely for entertainment. The second are students who use the page for human connection rather than just cheap shots and sex jokes. The third type of reader is a combination of the first two. These readers enjoy seeing certain people be knocked down a peg while still feeling bad for those who

The University Star 601 University Drive Trinity Building, Room 101 San Marcos, TX 78666 Phone: (512) 245-3487 Fax: (512) 245-3708

confess about legitimate problems. Some of these readers may even feel guilty for laughing at the misfortune of others. Of course that guilt may be short-lived as they scroll down and laugh at another post reeking of bad choices and tragic flaws. At some point I just got tired of reading the posts and quit following the page. The whole confession thing does not seem fun anymore. I do not like the idea of feeling better about my life at the expense of others. I did not like the idea of wasting my time laughing at the others’ misfortune. Spending too much time on the confessions page ended up making me feel bad about myself. The fault of the “Texas State Confessions” Facebook page lies in its purpose. The anonymity of the page is one of its major flaws. Because confessions are completely anonymous, there is no accountability. It is impossible to tell whether or not the confessions are true or made up. Anonymity encourages cyber-bullying. Talking trash about somebody anonymously can seem funny at first, but it is really just sad. Maybe some frat guys can be jerks, but throwing rocks anonymously is pretty jerk-like in itself. Reading “Texas State confessions” ends up being not much different than reading the scrawls on a bathroom stall door. Laughing at others’ misfortunes in order to feel better is pathetic. Likewise is calling people out anonymously and not owning up to it. The “Texas State Confessions” page offers nothing positive for students, except a place to complain and belittle others. It is easier to complain than make positive changes, and that is why so many students enjoy the site. Students should find something more productive and positive to do with their time. Students can read the Facebook page if they want to but should seriously consider what they are participating in first.

things. It is up to students to set boundaries in order to succeed in college and not drop out. College is a time where students are transitioning from being told what to do and when to do it, to learning what is right for them. Students do not bring their moms to college with them, and there is no one around to tell them to eat their vegetables, go to bed early and do their homework. Students have to learn to be their own source of discipline in college. Students are allowed to make mistakes and have fun, but they should know when to cut the shenanigans and get to work.

Texas drought conditions necessitate water conservation measures

Molly Block Opinions Columnist Journalism senior

residents need to become SusageanmoreMarcos conscious of their water in order to conserve resources

while Texas continues to suffer from a drought. According to a Feb. 5 Huffington Post article, the drought that has plagued Texas for the last several years is on track to become the second-worst on record. Though some parts of the state are better off than others, there is no doubt every region of Texas has been affected in some way or another. Rain has been sparse in Hays County over the last few years, and the state of the San Marcos River is evidence. Students taking a dip or floating down the river this summer might have noticed the water level was lower than usual. According to an Oct. 3 Austin American-Statesman article, lakes Travis and Buchanan only climbed from 31 percent full to 33 percent full during recent rains, and in November they are expected to set a new drought record. Although these issues may not be obvious to the general public, the drought is a reality that requires the cooperation of all Texas residents to combat. According to the same Huffington Post article, Texas has only received 68 percent of its average yearly rainfall,

and reservoirs are at their lowest levels since 1990. The state’s water supply is at a mere 59.4 percent, compared to 68.4 percent last year, according to an Oct. 11 Star-Telegram article. With no immediate relief in sight, San Marcos residents and students need to be mindful of their water consumption and practice conservation techniques in an attempt to save rapidly dwindling water resources. Water conservation is not an option—it is an obligation. If residents do not change their habits, the depletion of state water reservoirs will continue unchecked. Residents and students need not completely change their lifestyles in order to save water. Small changes such as watering the lawn in the evening instead of during the day can make a huge difference. Water is an integral part of day-to-day life and cannot afford to be carelessly wasted. Texas State students can make a difference, too. It may seem obvious, but just turning the water off while brushing teeth, taking shorter showers, washing pets outside or turning off automatic ice makers can help save water. Using dishwashers and washing machines only for full loads, fixing leaks or faulty plumbing and tightly turning off water faucets to prevent drips can make a significant difference over time. Although the drought has created serious problems for San Marcos and Texas at large, there are several things residents and students can do to improve the situation. By actively conserving water and forming good habits, San Marcos residents and Texas State students can help save precious water resources.

ouisiana—Monroe’s senior safety Isaiah Newsome became the first player in Sun Belt Conference history to return two interceptions for a touchdown Saturday as the Warhawks defeated the Bobcats 21–14. Newsome’s first interception came mid-way through the first quarter for 71 yards. His second gave the Warhawks a 14–0 lead with 11:07 minutes left in the third quarter. The 146 intercepted yards Newsome gained is the most in Sun Belt history. “Coach challenged us all week to be better in coverage,” Newsome said. “On the first one I made a good read. They ran the slant, and I snuck in front and picked it. On the second one we were in a cover three, and I filled the roll out, stuck my hand out there and poof, and got it.” Sophomore running back Robert Lowe rushed for a career high 145 yards, averaging 6.4 yards per carry, and his longest rush on the night was 22 yards. Lowe now has six touchdowns on the season and recorded his third game of more than 100 yards rushing. “They (Louisiana—Monroe) do a lot of things on defense,” Lowe said. “They blitz a lot from different holes. I was just finding holes, and I give that credit to the line because they blocked so well. They were giving me an opportunity to get first downs.” After junior punter Will Johnson’s

kick to the opposition’s 1-yard line in the third quarter, Warhawks sophomore quarterback Brayle Brown threw an interception while scrambling outside of the pocket. Junior linebacker David Mayo dove for the ball for his third interception for the season. Mayo’s interception gave the Bobcats possession on the 8-yard line. Mayo registered a game-high of 11 tackles. After Jones’s second interception was returned for a touchdown, senior quarterback Tyler Arndt replaced him with 6:45 left in the third quarter. “I don’t have that answer for you on how we’ll move forward,” said Coach Dennis Franchione. “Tyler Jones is going to be a great quarterback, he just got a big learning curve right now. He got a couple of hard lessons tonight. For the most part, Tyler Arndt, he came in and got some points on the board—to his credit he came off the bench and tied us up at least.” With the score tied at 14–14, senior safety Aaron Matthews gave Brown his second interception of the night and ran it back 35 yards to the Texas State 48-yard line. “I feel like it gave us a shot,” Matthews said. “College football is a tough game. You can’t depend on one play. You have to fight every play. That pick gave us a shot. You have to learn to execute on both sides of the ball and defense has to keep them from driving down the field and offense has to score.” Subsequently, senior wide receiver Andy Erickson’s second personal

misconduct resulted in a disqualification and pushed the Bobcats out of field goal range. A deep slant route, which was incomplete to junior wide receiver Ben Ijah, resulted in Texas State failing to convert for a score off the turnover. With 2:56 remaining in the game, the Warhawks conducted a 10-play drive for 75 yards. Louisiana—Monroe capped the drive by a 10-yard touchdown from junior running back Centarius Donald. The defense held the Warhawks’ offense 2–15 on third down conversions. The two third down conversions came on the last LouisianaMonroe drive. The 192 yards of total offense the Warhawks gained marks the lowest offensive yards the Bobcats have allowed all season. Senior transfer D.J. Yendrey made his first appearance for the Bobcats this season. Yendrey recorded three tackles.
