Marshall University will sponsor three performances of the “Tunnel of Oppression” at 5, 6, and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, in the Francis-Booth Experimental Theatre on the Huntington campus. Marshall is joining a growing list of schools that are staging their own interactive Tunnel of Oppression experience. Originally developed at Western Illinois University, the Tunnel of Oppression is a tour in which participants experience different forms of oppression through interactive scenes, monologues and multimedia. “Participants will have the opportunity to see, touch, hear, and feel the realities of oppression as a stepping stone toward creating diversity awareness and tolerance and challenging our perceptions about issues surrounding oppression,” Yaun said. “The Tunnel of Oppression is about creating a „sensory experience‟ that serves as an agent of social change and a model of consciousness-raising, reflecting the realities of oppression in today‟s society.” For more information, contact Yaun by e-mail at, or by phone at 304-696-6766.

Buskirk Beat


November & December 2011

In the past month, Buskirk has been bustling with activities and programs geared towards homecoming, health, and Halloween. Floors sported spooky décor and the lobby with Marcos made by residents of RHA. Our faculty in residence, Jana Hovland came to share her nutrition expertise and residents danced off that extra slice of Harless pizza with the popular game, Just Dance. Whether dining in with a specially catered meal from Olive Garden, or “Making a Mark” and making memories, there is never a dull moment in our all-female hall.

Residents and RA, Kaley Fulks, stay active and healthy by participating in an intramural volleyball team at the REC Center. If you‟d like to participate in the intramural basketball season, contact Kaley at

November will be just as exciting as we near finals and winter break. Relieve some stress at our building wide program, do some crafts with RHA, and spread holiday cheer at your floor parties. Before you know it, Buskirk will be ringing in the New Year and the start of another great semester at Marshall University.

Stress KNOW THE FACTS. AVOID THE CONSEQUENCES. Stress /stress/: A psychological and physical response of the body that occurs whenever we must adapt to changing conditions, whether those conditions be real or perceived, positive or negative.

College can be stressful for a variety of reasons:        

Greater academic demands Being on your own in a new environment Changes in family relations Financial responsibilities Changes in your social life Exposures to new people, ideas and temptations Discomfort with your sexual identity Preparing for life after graduation

Warning signs:  Changes in sleep patterns  Changes in eating patterns  More frequent headaches  Shorter temper  Recurring illness  Frequent muscle ache and/or tightness  More disorganized that normal  Increased difficulty in task completion  Greater sense of persistent time pressure  Increased generalized frustration and anger **If this seems like you, seek assistance at our campus counseling center** Proactive Stress Management: To manage stress we must address physical and psychological factors. Keep in mind that maintaining balance between your intellectual, social and personal development is the key to a well-adjusted college experience.  Add a physical workout to your schedule at least every other day  Set both long term (semester) and short term (week) goals. Write them down. Make them part of your time management schedule.  Seek help of an advisor in developing better time management skills.  Each day find twenty minutes of „alone time‟ to relax.  Don‟t sweat the small stuff…ask yourself if the issue at hand is worth getting upset about.  Humor and positive thinking are important tools in stress management.  MOST IMPORTANT! Communicate! Talking to a friend, roommate, RA, professor, family member, etc. about issues is helpful. 

A Young Thundering Herd Production



Towers West

The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited. -Plutarch

No-Shave November: beware, and be aware Starting November 1st, Marshall University is going to start looking more and more like an Alaskan wilderness, and not a college campus. Do not be alarmed, residents, for you too may be “in the know” on this hairy holiday and actively participating, but are you aware of why we celebrate it? As you all may know, October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month. Much to the same degree, November is unofficially Testicular Cancer Awareness month. The trend began in Australia and New Zealand as “Movember” – a hybrid

between “Moustache” and “November.” America caught wind of it, and we’ve made it our own, sporting entire lumberjack beards.

The National Cancer Institute reports that over 8,000 men, most commonly between age 20 and 39, develop a new case. So join me on All Hallows Eve (Halloween) to use your razor only once for the month of November and get a clean canvas for your beard to begin. Who knows, you might like your manly beard so much, to continue through “Decembeard” and into “Manuary!”

Residents of Wade Stansberry’s floor discuss majors (and possibly what their beard will look like at the end of November.)

Need to relax for a while? We all know you’re stressed for finals. Natural part of the college life. You’re overworked, undernourished, and sleep is a myth. On December 3rd, at 8:30pm, you’re invited to drop all your worries at the door of the Sixth Floor study lounge in Towers West, and let your cares melt away. Night includes face masks, foot bath, massage chair, strawberries and chocolate, and nail polish for mani/pedi. If you have any questions, ask Libby Danishanko, who will be hosting the event.

RA’s Yo Hioki (pictured above) and Kyle Wilson both had very successful programs during the month of October, both enlisting dozens of residents. Wilson’s was especially memorable, as he brought in Rob Henry the lead investigator from the Original West Virginia Paranormal Group. Twenty-two residents attended and a few were even invited to tag along to the Ramsdale House that was being investigated that night.

On October 19, RHA held its very own “Fall Fest” which included live music, a raffle with great prizes, and 450 movie posters donated from the Keith Albee Theatre. Various members of Marshall’s faculty and staff also attended and nearly 200 students attended. Fall Fest was a creation of the new board of RHA, which have big plans for the 2011-2012 school year. Make sure to stay tuned for more upcoming events!

Dec 14 –Winter Break begins

On October 20, the Honors College held a pumpkin carving contest and gave away prizes to the top competitors. Free food, apple cider and pumpkin carving brought the holiday feel to all who attended. Honors staff and faculty accompanied the dozens of students and even participated in the pumpkin judging!
