defense. Cox shot at 50 percent from the free throw line on Feb. 12 in the Activities Building. Cox topped the

Grenadier scorecard as the top scorer of the game adding 19 points to the 110-76 victory over Alice Lloyd.




Residence Life and Housing is currently

conducting a search to find a new director.

In order to receive opinions from student

residents, several open sessions were held in

order to provide feedback about the candidates.

Currently, there are three candidates seeking

the position — Amanda Stonecipher,

Scott Iverson and Matthew Kerch.

Stonecipher spoke at an open session on

Feb. 6, while Kerch spoke on Feb. 9. Iverson’s

open session was on Feb. 8.

Iverson is currently the assistant director

of summer operations and apartment living

at the University of North Carolina Chapel


“My experience and the opportunities offered

with my experience and what I have

to offer seems like a really good fit,” Iverson


Iverson was the assistant director of residence

at North Carolina State and director

of Campus Life at both Louis University and

University of Maryland College Park.

“Working at larger universities allowed

me to see what was successful,” Iverson said.

“I do have some small school experience, as

well, but working here at a smaller campus

will help us work together and interact and

engage better. A smaller office is fine.”

Iverson said one of the reasons he is interested

in IU Southeast is to bring light on

health education and other issues.

“I am interested in shaping students at

this important time in their lives,” Iverson


Iverson explained three goals he would

like to accomplish in the first month of working

at IU Southeast.

“I would like to learn about departments

as much as possible,” Iverson said. “I want to

look down at assessment results, gather that

information and talk to people. We are here

for students and here for student environment.”

Iverson said he would reach out to the

people who support the residence department.

He would also find the coalitions and

partners associated with residence and inter-

Scarce space creates need for new lodge




A sixth lodge will be built in August 2013

at IU Southeast to accommodate more stu-

dents who want to live on campus.

Currently, there are no vacancies

in IU Southeast’s five other


“We have space for 399 students to

live on campus,” Jen Crompton, assistant

director for Residence Life and

Housing, said. “The new building

will most likely be the same size as

our larger buildings — Meadow,

Orchard rd and Woodland — so it

will hold 87 students.”

IU Southeast’s five lodges

— Meadow Lodge, Grove

Lodge, Orchard Lodge, Forest

Lodge and Woodland Lodge

— were opened for students

in August 2008.


Indiana University

Board of Trustees approved the project to

build a new lodge in August 2011.

A few students living on campus agreed

that more dorms were needed.

“The last I heard, there was a waiting list,”

The new

dorm should

get those

people off of

the wait list.

Jen Crompton

assistant director of

Residence Life and Housing

Megan Staten, elementary education freshman, said.

Staten lives in Forest Lodge.

“At the beginning of the year, there will be enough

people to fill up the new dorm,” Staten said. “The

new dorm should get those people off of the wait


However, the official wait list does not come out

until a couple of months.

“Right now, we don’t have a waiting

list for spring [2012],” Crompton

said. “We won’t start our waiting list

for next fall until we have completed

returning student room sign up, which

takes place in March, and then get

enough new applications to fill all of

our available spaces.”

Physical Plant will also have to clear

some space to build the lodge.

“We will build the dorm in the open

space by the Activities Building,” Jim

Wolfe, director of Physical Plant, said.

The new dorm will be situated by

the tennis courts, adjacent to the Activities


“We will remove a section of trees

to make room for the new dorm,” Wolfe said.

There are plans to expand existing parking lots

and establish new ones.

SGA motions for microwaves

IUS Police snatch

possible burglar


Senior Editor


Feb. 11 at 3:08 a.m.

An arrest report was taken following a traffic

stop on Grant Line Road for moving vehicle

violations. An officer noticed a strong alcohol

odor coming from the car of Ronald Richardson,

22. After failing three sobriety tests, Richardson

was arrested on a charge of operating

while intoxicated with a Blood Alcohol Content

of above .08 percent.

Feb. 13 at 11:05 a.m.

Following a request from the Clarksville

Police Department, an officer was dispatched

to Physical Science to issue a warrant for a

student arrest after he had failed to appear in

court. However, the student provided paperwork

proving he had appeared in court that

day, and no arrest was made.

Feb. 15 at 10:40 a.m.

IUS Police were dispatched to the Children’s

Center after receiving a call from the

New Albany Police Department. A father and

grandmother were attempting to locate their

child. However, the father was not listed as a

family member due to the parents being in the

middle of a divorce case. An officer advised

the father to contact his attorney, and no information

about the child was provided.

Feb. 17 at 4:49 a.m.

IUS Police located a subject behind Crestview

Hall who was on parole for a history of

burglary. Officers issued a trespass warning

and escorted the subject off campus.

The Physical Plant

ummer to complete

“During the summer,

There have also been

a few concerns raised

about wastewater and

sewage issues for the

new lodge. In 2007, IU

Southeast was able to

lower its sewer bills for

the dorms from $214,500

to $167,000. There have

also been other concerns

raised regarding drainage

from IU Southeast to

Grant Line Road.

“There’s no issue

with wastewater or sewage

for the new dorm,”

Wolfe said. “All of the

wastewater goes into

the current main off to

Hausfeldt Lane. Then

it goes into the sewage

plant from there.”

Wolfe said IU Southeast

plans to have the

lodge open for use in

August 2013.

There are also plans to

have many new events

on campus once the new

lodge is complete.

“We will also be continuing

efforts to host

events and activities for

all students at IU Southeast

to help build on an

already positive campus

community,” Crompton



esidence Life pursues new director position



An error was made in an issue of The Horizon,

published on Feb. 6.

On the front page, a mistake was made

in “Faculty fill in for vice chancellor.” Anne

Skuce, interim vice chancellor for Student Affairs,

and Chris Crews, acting director of Admissions,

were referred to as faculty instead of


The Horizon apologizes for this error.




The Student Government Association held its

weekly meeting on Feb. 21 in University Center


The majority of the 19 minutes of the meeting consisted

of a follow-up from Josh Kornberg, communications

senior and SGA president, on the working

projects of the SGA.

The main topic of conversation was adding additional

microwaves to The Commons. Currently, The

Commons have two microwaves, one of which is

frequently out of service.

The SGA has been working

with Physical Plant

It’s a really

cool thing that

the SGA can

put our stamp


Josh Kornberg

communications senior and

SGA president

to add three additional


“Physical Plant is

putting in additional

outlets by where the microwaves

currently are,”

Kornberg said. “They

are also going to take

that white particular

board out, and they are

going to put in shelving

and a new countertop.

They are also going to

take out the non-functioning

microwave and replace those with three new

functional microwaves.”

Physical Plant will be picking up the bill for electrical

costs and renovation of the countertop, but it

plans on being reimbursed for the cost of purchasing

the microwaves. The cost of the microwaves totaled

$139 per unit.

“These [microwaves] are the stainless steel industrial

restaurant microwaves,” Kornberg said. “They

are more heavy duty, and [people] buy them to last


The SGA is considering multiple ways to cover

the cost of the new microwaves. There has been a

loss in funds in the Student Life budget this semester

because of decreased enrollment, so the SGA

would like to try and reallocate funds to cover the

expenses of the microwaves.

“We had allocated $250 for homecoming expenses,

which we didn’t end up using because of weather

that was unforeseen,” Kornberg said. “We had to

ct with them.

“I am approachable,” Iverson said. “I want you to

now who I am. I need to be able to hear what you

ave to say.”

One concern from two faculty members in the audience

was the lack of tradition on IUS small-scale

residence life.

Iverson gave a recent example of how he started

a tradition at University of North Carolina Chapel


“During final exams there weren’t any stress relief

activities,” Iverson said. “We surveyed students

and found that stress was a big issue for them. We

then did an exam support fair with games, a craft table,

massage station, pizza forum, study pamphlets

and handouts.”

This is now a four-year tradition where Iverson

takes student feedback each year and learns how to

make the event better.

Iverson also discussed his role in summer conferences

and ability to advertise a school and get its

name out.

“We are not able to discuss our opinions or give

feedback at the moment because we are still interviewing

candidates,” Denise Jones, payroll system

supervisor for Human Resources, said.

Results of the hired candidate will be released

within the next two weeks.

cancel the bonfire, which is where our funds were

being used at.”

Matt Owen, political science junior and SGA senate

chair, said he would like to add the SGA logo to

the microwaves since they were purchased by SGA


“They have already ordered the microwaves, so

I would say that within the next two weeks we will

see something happen down there,” Kornberg said.

Kornberg has also been working with other organizations

on campus to find ways of advancing

student involvement. He is currently working with

Hunter Luthi, informatics senior and Gay Straight

Alliance president, about a program called “OMS”

that would send out e-mail and text alerts about

events on campus.

“The whole point of this is really stepping up to

a 21st century approach and really technologically

driven approach rather than strictly fliers, banners,

and poster approach,” Kornberg said. “We are really

trying to step it up and be innovative about it.

It’s a really great program.”

Luthi will be presenting the program to the SGA

within the following weeks.

“It’s a really cool thing that the SGA can put

our stamp on it,” Kornberg said. “Although it’s not

something that we did ourselves, but it’s something

we are a part of, and it’s something we continue to

build in to.”

Following up from last week’s meeting, the SGA

moved forward with their plan to transfer funds that

were originally set aside for uniforms and add them

to the budget for conferences and workshops. The

SGA set aside a budget of $250 for clothing, with logos

that would identify members of the SGA, which

they did not use.

The SGA passed the resolution, “Reallocation of

Funds: Within the Same Budget,” for the transfer of

funds from uniforms to the budget for conferences

and workshops account, which now totals nearly


Closing out the brief meeting, Stephen Prather,

radiography junior and SGA senate pro-tempore,

introduced the session binder he had been developing

to the Senate. The binder consists of the previous

resolutions, bills and session minutes from previous

SGA meetings.

Students can attend SGA meetings and voice their

concerns for the student body at its weekly meetings

on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. in University Center

South, room 122.

Rivals race to rack up points




The Grenadiers celebrated homeoming

with a 110-76 win over Alice

loyd Eagles on Feb. 11 in the Activiies


The win brought the IU Southeast

renadiers record to 19-7 and 9-1 in

he Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic

onference. This win was the fifth

onsecutive win at home for the IUS

en’s basketball team.

The Grenadiers started the game

ith a strong lead on the Eagles. Both

eams played a defensive game, reulting

in 39 shots from the free throw


The Eagles fared better in freehrow

shots shooting at 76 percent to

he Grenadiers 73 percent. With secnds

left in the first half, Spencer Allan,

freshman guard, received a techical

foul, adding two more points to

he Grenadiers’ scoreboard.

Allman said the team knew what to

xpect from the Eagles from playing

hem before.

“We were really well prepared,”

llman said. “We went down to their

lace about a month ago, and we

idn’t really play well, so we knew

oming in today that we had to be

eady to play.”

The Grenadiers went into halftime

ith a 53-36 lead on Alice Lloyd. Wiey

Brown, IUS men’s basketball head

oach, said the team still had a lot of

mprovement to do in the second half.

“I got on them at halftime, whethr

we were leading the game or not,

didn’t think we were competing,”

rown said. “Our interior defense is

ot very good right now.”

IU Southeast returned to the court,

eeping the same momentum from

the first half. The Grenadiers had six

players shooting in the double digits.

Leading the team in points was Wes

Cox, sophomore guard, with 19 points.

Following Cox with 13 points, was Kegan

Clark, sophomore forward.

Allman said the double digit victory

could be attributed to a team as a

whole on the court.

“We normally try to get up and

down the court — that’s the tempo we

like to play the game at,” Allman said.

“We’re a fast paced team, the more opportunity

and shots we get, the higher

the score is going to be.

If we play defense, it’s

going to give us a better

chance to win. I think it

was a total team effort today,

and we all shared the

ball really well.”

Brown said one of the

advantages IU Southeast

has on their opponents is

the youth of the team.

“Our guys are very athletic,

and a lot of teams

are not,” Brown said. “We

can dribble around those

guys, and, when their interior

defense sucks in, we

kick out, and we knock

down threes all the time.”

J.R. Hammond, Alice

Lloyd men’s basketball

head coach, said he saw

the faults in his team’s

defense in creating too

many opportunities for

IU Southeast to make

3-point shots.

“That’s the reason we

lost tonight,” Hammond

said. “We gave them open

shots, and they shot the

ball well. [We have] to

play better defense. That’s

all there is to it.”

the Grenadiers.

For Brown, he said it was

important for the team to


“I always tell [the team] ‘When you

come out, you have to do your job and

play hard,’” Brown said. “You gain

fans that way. When you get a crowd

like this, those guys want to show how

good they are.”

Lady Grenadiers poach Eagles




The IUS women’s basketball

team pulled off a win against the

Alice Lloyd Eagles during homecoming

on Feb. 11, with a score of


The game came down to the last

second and was not an easy win for

the Lady Grenadiers.

Alice Lloyd played a rough game

filled with knock-downs and pushes

as they flew down the court.

The tip off went to the Grenadiers

as Heather Wheat, freshmen guard,

took the first shot and missed.

Alice Lloyd took the ball and

ran down the court, and, while the

Grenadiers played some, strong defense,

it was not enough.

The sounds from the crowd overcame

the basketball court as they

booed the away team.

Ariel Nickell, sophomore forward

for Alice Lloyd, took the

team’s first shot after two turnovers

and scored.

Megan Murphy, senior forward,

shot the first 3-pointer and scored.

The first foul was called on Bailey

Gabbard, senior guard for Alice

Lloyd, against Murphy.

The first five minutes were filled

with many loose balls, but the

Grenadiers were up 7-5.

In the first half quarter, Kylee

Anthony, junior guard, fell and injured


After a few minutes, she was

able to get up but sat out in order to

be checked by the team aid.

With 11 minutes left, the Eagles had

back-to-back fouls with four total

for their team.

Brooke Willoughby, junior

guard, made two 3-pointers in a


In the last minutes of the half,

both teams kept turning over the

ball, and the Eagles were on their

ninth team foul.

The Grenadiers led at the half

with a score of 38-32.

The Eagles led the game for one

minute in the second half, they

could not keep the lead.

“It wasn’t our best game,” Tia

Wineinger, sophomore forward,

said. “We had a lot of turnovers, but

we pulled through.”

At an early age in my childhood,

my mother adamantly instilled the

concept of common courtesy and

manners into my daily behavior.

Not only was I a well-read child,

but I was also courteous to my peers

and the adults around me.

It has always been imperative I say

thank you when given something or

please when accompanied with a request.

Since I was raised by these values,

I have always found it puzzling when

I encounter someone who clearly never read “Richard

Scarry’s Please and Thank You Book” as a child

or even as an adult.

My frustration with others’ lack of courtesy has

become increasingly worse each time I enter

a women’s restroom at IU

Southeast and see someone

was apparently never taught

how to flush a toilet after ing it.


Some may not think flushing a toilet is mannerly, but

I find it repulsive that it has never

been a mandatory process in ev-

eryone’s toilet-using life. How have

these women gone through h life out someone explaining to them the


offensiveness of their lack for common

courtesy when they refuse to flush a


Another gesture that is often ignored,

especially at IU Southeast, is some peoples’

inability to hold a door open for


One may assume if another’s hands are

full and they are unable to easily open the

door for themselves, then the free-handed ed

individual would graciously hold the door

open for them.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

I never realized such an effortless but generous

gesture as holding a door open for another was so

difficult, but the countless occurrences where I have

witnessed this gesture being neglected tell me otherwise.

Not only is this generous act often overlooked,

but the capability to throw trash away into a proper

trash receptacle seems to also be too much for some.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when I see litter

strewn on the ground carelessly. This peeve is amplified

when I actually observe someone toss their

garbage anywhere that is not a designated trash can.

I assume most people understand someone else

will have to eventually clean this mess up, and, yet,

this is still a common action because some people

simply do not care.

When brought to the basics, manners

are all about possessing a sensitive

awareness of the feelings of others.

Do people typically like to pick up

others’ trash or have a door shut on

them? Probably not.

By the way, no one wants to step in

anyone’s already chewed gum on the

sidewalk either.

That being said, no one wants to

work out on a weight bench soaked in

sweat by the previous user.

There are signs spread out around

the gym for a reason, and I would

think most gym-buffs would like to

work out on a sanitized, sweat-free

piece of equipment.

I understand everyone has been raised differently

and what is acceptable in each household is diverse,

but, in a public facility, there are common standards

in place for everyone to abide.

For instance, one is expected

to clean up after

oneself, maintain a safe and

clean environment and not


like a savage when eat-


working out or participating

in other activities.

As previously mentioned,

most individuals learn the

notion of manners by their

parents. Sadly, it is unlikely

for children to learn man-


when they are not ex-


to them.

Some parents seem to for-

get the significance of teaching

their children to have a polite demean-

or and the benefits these appealing

qualities have on their children’s fu-



I was raised to appre-

ciate and employ courtesy, I have

been blessed with a wonderful job in

hospitality that would not have been

available to me ifIb behaved like a rude animal.

For that matter, I find it frustrating when all occupations

do not put their employees’ character and

ability to provide excellent customer service as a

No. 1 priority.

As great as it is going to a clothing store or restaurant

where the worker is extremely discourteous

and refuses to offer a sincere introduction or even a

fake one, I would rather pass on the opportunity.

I am surprised a respectful disposition is not

obligatory in every job where one must work with

or around other people.

It is never too late to learn common courtesy or

apply “The Golden Rule” in everyday life. If one

would like someone to hold the door open for them

as they struggle, that individual should be willing to

more exotic simply because that person

went to an island for two weeks.

That being said, there is still no

reason to mope around the house for

four months of the year.

There are more beneficial activities

to do besides sitting on the couch

dreaming about what it might be like

soaking up sun on a beach somewhere

or updating Facebook while

procrastinating on writing that history


Why not put those procrastination

skills to good use?

The best activity —

and probably the most

generic — a person can do during

winter is to get active.

Exercising, whether that means going

to the gym, playing a sport or simply

finding a reason to get moving, can

make a person feel better about himself and

improve his overall health.

Motivation to exercise is hard to come

by when the weather is cold, and it is hard

enough getting out of bed in the morning

to go to work or school.

However, once a person

incorporates exercise into

a routine, he will find it

gets easier with practice,

and his general outlook

on physical activity will change.

There are opportunities for ercise every day.

Many times, when I stray from my normal routine

on campus, I run into someone I have not talked

to in a while.

People, including students or professors from

previous classes, appreciate when someone takes

the time to ask them how they are doing or what

their plans are for the future.

Also, talking to them in person eases the social

awkwardness of deleting them from Facebook after

the class has ended.

Interacting with people adds to a person’s self-es-

teem and sense of belonging. Finding

time to have a real conversation

with family members, significant

others or friends seems

like a no-brainer, but it is easy

to get overwhelmed with school

and work. No matter how busy a

person is, it is important to make

time for the people that matter.

Include more activities that involve

those people, such as cooking

a new recipe with younger siblings

or establishing a date night

with your significant other.

Campus Life role model

ups student involvement




Channell Barbour, associate director

of Campus Life, is recognized by

many students due to her devoted

time to many student organizations.

Barbour can relate to many of the

students she works with because, like

many of them, she was the first in her

amily to attend college.

Born and raised in Oldham County,

y., Barbour said IU Southeast was

nce a mystery to her.

Although her parents did not attend

ollege, they pushed her and instilled

aith into what she could achieve.

“I am still pursing higher educaion,”

Barbour said.

Barbour said her father told her

rom the time she was a child, until the

ay she stepped foot onto Berea Colege’s

campus, she would earn a colege


Barbour received her bachelor’s

egree in political science from Berea

ollege and her master’s in public adinistration

from West Virginia Uniersity.

Barbour is now in the process

f pursuing her Ph.D. in educational

dministration with a specialization in

igher education leadership.

At Berea, Barbour did a lot of reruiting

and said felt she could do the

ame for IU Southeast.

Hired in 2005 as an academic advisr

for IU Southeast, Barbour worked

er way up to her current position in





Trey Lewis, director of Career Services, joined IU

outheast from James Madison University in Virgina,

where he has been for the past six years.

Lewis said IU Southeast is a place that is very speial

to him.

“I have a special tie to this university,” Lewis

aid. “My wife was an extremely involved student

eader. She’s actually among the class of 2007. This

ampus will always hold a special place in my heart

because I proposed to my wife on this campus.”

The opportunity presented itself to Lewis to become

a part of the university and take the next step

in his professional career.

Lewis proposed to his wife at IU Southeast five

years ago on Valentine’s Day. Lewis lives with his

wife and 1-year-old daughter and said he hopes to

visit his family in Virginia as soon as he can. He is

happy to be close to his wife’s family.

Lewis also admires IU Southeast for its core values.

He said he believes IU Southeast is be a special

campus with core values that connect the student


“Everyone from faculty, to the staff, to the stuents,

on up to the administration, all try to provide

hose values,” Lewis said. “That comes through with

Barbour said her current position

gives her the opportunity to assist

students and faculty on campus with

setting up school events, helping organizations

and helping students get

involved with campus.

“My job gives me the opportunity

to interact with students and get

to know them on a personal level as

well,” Barbour said.

Many of the students confide in

Barbour and look to her for advice or

for certain resources.

Growing up Barbour always wanted

a job like Michael Jordan.

“He would love going to work and

playing in the pros,” Barbour said, “so

I have always wanted to have a job like

that to know that I am helping or making

a difference in someone’s life.”

Many students look up to her and

respect the time she puts into helping

others around campus. Barbour

said she does not discriminate on the

help she gives, whether it is something

pertaining to school or something personal,

and she always tries her best to

meet every need of the student body.

Angela Calbert, business accounting

senior, said she has gained a great

bond with Barbour over the past few


“Channell has assisted me during

my academic career in many different

ways,” Calbert said. “She has

gone beyond the call of duty for the

Multicultural Student Union to ensure

our events take place and are successful.

She also lends a listening ear,

words of advice and encouragement

in my personal endeavors, as well as

my academic career.”

Barbour said she encourages students

to get out and meet others outside

of their comfort zone. She said she

believes everyone brings something to

the table and is also a firm believer in

our work with students and what students are doing

to better themselves and where they are taking

their higher education. All of that mixed together is

what makes this campus very special.”

Lewis said he loves the fact IU Southeast is just

the right size.

“It allows opportunities to further interact with

students,” Lewis said. “If a student meets with me

in my office, it is more likely later that I will run into

them someplace else on campus whether it be in the

the saying “pay it forward,” which she

specifically directs toward IUS seniors.

the professors helped you, so reach

back and pay it back by becoming part

New director guides students toward career paths

cafeteria or elsewhere, and I can catch up with them

and see how they are doing.”

Lewis’s position involves coming up with some

mechanisms and interventions to help undecided or

exploratory students.

“There is an old adage that a family member always

told me,” he said. “To fail to plan is to plan to

fail. I would venture to say that, that adage would

certainly be true when it comes to developing a career


“Data has shown that those students with an undecided

major tend to not come back the next year

at a rate that those to do declare a major do,” Lewis

said. “We are coming up with some strategies with

the Academic Success Center to address student retention

and new strategies to address first year students

to help them find a major they would like to

pursue. This is a new change for the institution, and

I am honored and privileged to be a part of that.”

Lewis said he believes these changes will benefit

students by helping them decide what their interests

are and what career paths they want to pursue.

Lewis said one of his goals is to get students to

engage with the Career Development Center much

earlier so their professional understanding of their

chosen career paths are much clearer by the time

they graduate.

“We are in a down economy, so employers now,

more than ever, have the ability to be more selective

in their hiring process,” he said.

Fine arts senior dedicated to sorority




Anna Loos, fine arts senior, said

she chose IU Southeast because it is

a small school that reminds her of

her hometown in Elizabeth,

Ind. Not only is she involved

in the Fine Arts program, but

she is also the president ent of

Alpha Phi sorority.

When choosing her

major, Loos said she

knew she had talent in

the arts, but, when it

came to a sorority,

she had no interest

until her freshman

year when she

lived on campus.

“I really connected

with the

girls and decided to

join the sorority,” Loos

aid. “I am an only child, so being in a

orority is like all of those girls are my

eal sisters. It’s something I never got

o experience.”
