"Virtues of Public Discourse" will aid campus discussion 5 virtues from Sexuality Task Force's report issued as stand-alone document Jamie Pierce C A M P U S BEAT EDITOR 44

What kind of c o m m u n i t y is H o p e College?" T h i s question is asked on the cover of a pamphlet released recently by Hope in conjunction with the Task F o r c e on Issues of Sexuality. T h e p a m p h l e t c o n t a i n s f i v e "Virtues of Public Discourse" and is o n e product of last s e m ester's report from the Task Force on Issues of Sexuality.

Student Congress President, Colleen E v a n s ( ' 0 3 ) , S t u d e n t C o n g r e s s p r e s i d e n t , and Herrick himself. According to Herrick, the subcommittee discussed the concept of virtues, decided which virtues would be most fitting for the task at hand, and refined the meaning of each virtue for the report. T h e larger committee was pleased with the formulation of the five virtues - humility, hospitality, patience, courage, and honesty, and so it was added to the task force's report. "Interestingly e n o u g h , " Herrick said, "that's been probably the most w i d e l y e n d o r s e d or mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm well-received part of the report." T h e "Virtues of Public Discourse" brochure is available as a stand-alone document, separate from the c o m p l e t e task force report, and is available u p o n request f r o m the C o m munication department. "I s h o w e d it to Admissions." H e r r i c k said. "I s h o w e d it t o s o m e people in the Registrar's office who work with F Y S , and the response has been very positive, and so I said, 'Would it be helpful to have this in the f o r m of a brochure?' and people seemed to think it would." M u l t i p l e c o p i e s are a v a i l a b l e f o r classes. With help f r o m CIT, the pamphlet is also available on the web, and is accessible f r o m the c a m p u s links menu on K n o w H o p e . T h e page was recently featured with a K n o w H o p e headline. According to Herrick, other colleges are

When we were doing the [task force] work, one of the things that we heard from people around campus was that we need to have some guidelines for campus discussions that help us engage in controversial issues without hurting one another." m m -James Herrick J y

W h e n Mitch Peterson ( ' 0 6 ) first saw his housing card, he didn't know what to think. After seeing his room, a converted Kollen Hall study lounge for the first time, Peterson felt differently about the situation. "I didn't know what to do with all the space," said Peterson. Peterson was one of eight students temporarily assigned to live in t w o Kollen Hall study lounges d u e to a c a m p u s hous-

Point/counterpoint: male/female enrollment R e b e k a h ' s Point:

David Gutierrez and Rebekah Oegema INFOCUS EDITOR AND C O P Y EDITOR

T h e rumors are flying: 6 females to every male. Ideal dating environment. Senior scramble. Females out of luck in finding a mate. We at the Anchor have decided to explore this issue and offer a m a l e and f e m a l e perspective on the ratio debate. W e w e l c o m e your ideas, too: H o p e ' s c a m p u s has 2 males for every 5 females. W h a t do you think?

Inside

Beyond controversy, minority divisions, and c a m p u s group issues, a topic of great discussion as of late on H o p e ' s C a m p u s is mathematics, o r a developing trend in the ratio of males to females. This discussion is not unique to our campus, and the debate over the recent trend in c o l l e g e s and u n i v e r s i t i e s has been gaining increasing media attention. T h e G r a n d Rapids Press

published a recent article discussing the trends, which s h o w that female college attendance is on the rise, while m a l e attendance is falling. In response, I ' v e heard males r e j o i c i n g in o n e ear and w o m e n despairing 'where the m e n at?' in the other. H o w e v e r , this is not necessarily a gender-divided argument. There are many views on the social and educational ramifications these statistics show. T h i s current trend is a

surprising reversal to most of our country's history, thinking back to a time where women were denied a formal education, and even as recently as the early seventies when males continued to be the majority in the educational institutions. It is my o p i n i o n that a m o r e evenly-dispersed student population would be beneficial to students in both the educational and social realms. S o many of my f e m a l e friends

c o m e to m e in despair, asking m e if I k n o w of a male available for a d a t i n g r e l a t i o n s h i p , or e v e n a friendship where they're able to get a male perspective on a problem. They, of course, are grateful that they are able to get a quality education in an environment supportive of their educational pursuits, but w h e n Fantasia time rolls around, the hunt f o r available males sometimes brings on suicidal tendencies.

A fresh perspective on familiar sights is set to make its debut at H o p e ' s D e P r e e Art Gallery this Friday.

"I t h i n k it will be s o m e t h i n g f a i r l y d i f f e r e n t t h a t ' s s h o w n in DePree Gallery," said Cassie. "I spent a lot of time in this space so it's kind of interesting to have my stuff in here." By utilizing mathematical patt e r n s , a b a s i c s t r u c t u r e of t h e golden mean represented as a spiral, with themes c o m m o n to patterns in nature, Cassie creates a visually stunning representation of what he likens to the collegiate world around us. B i v o u a c is a n e w e x h i b i t designed specifically f o r the DePree Gallery. Cassie pointed out that he decided to incorporate the golden m e a n in his exhibit while looking at a spiral on his computer, saying it seemed to work well with the dimensions of the gallery itself. " A s I w a s looking at the gallery drawings with the spiral, they fit pretty well. T h e y ail corresponded to points," said Cassie. H e chose to entitle the exhibit

If you don't have anything nice to say.. Last year. President Bultman appointed a Task Force on Issues of Sexuality at Hope. T h i s group had a multitude of purposes, o n e of which was to find effective w a y s to c o m m u n i c a t e o n e s ' thoughts and opinions on sexuality. After a year of deliberation, they published their findings in a 30-page report. This report contained their biblically rooted suggestions of h o w to conduct oneself in a social conversation. Humility, hospitality, patience, courage, and honesty made up the "Virtues of Public Discourse." A s accurate as these may be. I cannot help but w o n d e r at their true value. Sure, w e should conduct ourselves in these w a y s during conversation, but shouldn't w e already know this? It seems that we don't need a special group to tell us h o w to be nice to each other, and it also seems this g r o u p w a s just a big waste of time. But then I think back to my previous Hope experience: the "Take Back O u r C a m p u s Crew," last year, the homosexuality debate of years past with proponents on either side that refuse to c o m p r o m i s e . T h e r e has always been a kind of "Fire and B r i m s t o n e " approach to people with different beliefs at this college. So, as m u c h as I would like to believe that these "virtues" are nothing but a restatement of c o m m o n knowledge, I know that, f o r at least s o m e of us, they aren't. For a real life example of the attitude toward different ideals, you need to look no further than this page. T h e letter to the editor this week, f r o m G.L.O.B.E., is signed " M a d a m e Prez and M a d a m e V.P." It is an absolute shame that the leaders of this group have reason to fear harassment f r o m m e m b e r s of this college community. T h e goal of G.L.O.B.E., and other groups like it, is to promote understanding in the community, so that all of our lives m a y be enriched. So, to anyone reading this right n o w that would have the urge to criticize G.L.O.B.E. or any other group that is looking to promote understanding, I w o u l d suggest that you take to heart the advice of the Task Force. For the rest of us, m a k e sure, through this c o m i n g year, w e should k e e p our minds open to others and their views, so w e m a y truly m a k e this c o m m u n i t y something to be proud of.

Get involved Well, the first week and a half of school has passed, and the semester has officially started. Classes are beginning, and the h o m e w o r k is all c o m i n g in. Despite all of this, I would encourage any student on this c a m p u s to go out and get involved in anything that you may be interested in. Even though the first w e e k is over, there is still time to get out to student groups. W h e t h e r you are interested in W T H S , Nykerk, the Pull or T h e Anchor, c o m m u n i cate your interest n o w : you will not regret it later. In m y first year, the only extracurricular activity I was involved in w a s Nykerk, and I missed out. Since then, every year I have steadily added activities to my plate, and n o w I k n o w m a n y m o r e people on campus, and I am much happier. E v e n though it may be stressful at times, all of the work is definitely rewarding in the end.

The inside story from the ones who know Administrative assistants from around campus talk about what happens behind the scenes. Jen Troke SPOTLIGHT EDITOR

For Lannelte Carson, administrative assistant to J a m e s Boelkins, provost, spending time on Hope's c a m p u s is nothing new. She has only worked in her current position for a little less than a year, but Hope College has been a part of her life ever since she began taking piano lessons on c a m p u s as a child. "My dad went to Hope, my brother went to Hope, I went to Hope, so I just always k n e w that I wanted to c o m e back and be involved with Hope someday," Carson said. F r o m dorm life in Kollen Hall to the oxroast n o w k n o w n as c o m m u n i t y day, Carson has stayed involved with Hope College. In her current position, she has a chance to see things f r o m a new perspective. " M y cousin is a s o p h o m o r e here and lives in Kollen. H e w a s b o m when I was a sophomore living in Kollen," Carson said. Now, she spends many of her days in her o f f i c e n e x t to the p r o v o s t ' s , w h e r e she handles projects, schedules and major events like the pre-college conference f o r faculty. " W e ' r e kind of a personnel department for the faculty as far as we administer the salary process in the spring when w e ' r e issuing contracts f o r the f a c u l t y f o r t h e n e x t y e a r , " Carson said. "All the recruiting and hiring of new faculty c o m e s through our office." Although Carson m a y seem relatively new to the provost's office scene, she out-dates the provost himself. " H e ' s brandnew, so I h a v e a little idea, but this year's just going to be totally different," Carson said. S o m e of the projects Carson and Boelkins have to tackle this semester are Baccalaureate, Commencement, Honors Convocation and other awards ceremonies. Carson also receives help f r o m Barb Westrate, who is the secretary for A l f r e d o Gonzales, assistant provost. W h e n Carson isn't working on projects, she works on her outside interests, like acc o m p a n y i n g the Christ M e m o r i a l C h u r c h

Dutch runners stride right at home meet Hope squad takes first and second in season opener Ben DeHaan S P O R T S EDITOR

After finishing last season in second place in both the m e n ' s and w o m e n ' s teams, the H o p e crosscountry teams began the first chapter of their 2 0 0 2 season last Saturd a y at t h e B i l l V a n d e r b i l t Invitational at Van R a a l t e F a r m . With three other M1AA teams present, the Dutch faced competition throughout the races The women's cross-country watched their season begin on the right foot, as they were able to win the meet by placing runners in the second through sixth-place positions. W h i l e H o p e f i n i s h e d with 2 0 points, Albion c a m e in second with

6 9 points. A l m a placed in third, with 85 points, and C o r n e r s t o n e c a m e in last, with 101 points. "1 thought the team did really well, especially the n e w c o m e r s , " said Kristen Post ('03), one of the co-captains for the Dutch. " O u r competition was pretty good, so w e were weary of t h e m . " T h e D u t c h ' s top runner was Leticia Grandia ('03), w h o clocked in at 19:36. Chris Alcenius ( ' 0 6 ) c a m e in t h i r d at 1 9 : 4 0 . K a t i e Veldman ('04), Kristen Post ( ' 0 3 ) and Rachel R i e m e r ( ' 0 4 ) finished u p the Dutch win. T h e m e n ' s team also had a strong s h o w i n g by putting t w o r u n n e r s inside the top five. However, Albion proved to be too strong on the day, and placed their top five runners in the top ten of the race, taking the victory. This was the second consecutive year that Albion and H o p e finished first and second

in the invitational. O l i v e t f i n i s h e d in third place with 93 points. Alma finished fourth with 98 points, and C o r n e r s t o n e took the last spot in the race with 126 points. The Dutchmen runners were led by a young c r o w d . Tyson Warner ( ' 0 6 ) took r u n n e r - u p h o n o r s in t h e r a c e , f i n i s h i n g in 2 6 : 1 7 , while Kyle Williams ( ' 0 6 ) f i n i s h e d in f o u r t h w i t h a time of 27:24. Topping off the last of the D u t c h m e n ' s times were Justin B l a z e k ( ' 0 6 ) , Matt Casillas ( ' 0 6 ) and D o n o v a n Hornbeck ( ' 0 4 ) . Both the men and w o m e n ' s teams will return to c o m p e t i t i o n at t h e A q u i n a s Invitational on Sept 13th.

" W e ' r e not w h e r e w e need to b e yet," said VanAssen. " W e ' l l start coming out next weekend when w e play s o m e harder teams." T h e Flying D u t c h will need to play their best all season long to accomplish their somewhat a m b i t i o u s g o a l s f o r the s e a s o n . According to VanAssen, the team hopes to win their conference and go to the N C A A tournament, goals that are not out of reach considering t h a t H o p e w a s last y e a r ' s M I A A champion, along with avenging the loss to Calvin. 44 I think it's very possible to win the c o n f e r e n c e again if we stick together as a t e a m , " Van A s s e n said.

In t h e i r f i r s t g a m e v e r s u s T h o m a s Moore, Hope struggled with first g a m e jitters and it took t h e m awhile to get the p a s s i n g sequences and checks down.

Bryant Loomis ('03) had two goals, with G e o f f r e y M e y e r ( ' 0 6 ) adding another. T h e time for celebration w a s short-lived, however, as the team faced an even tougher challenge: Anderson (Ind.), the next day.
