The Horizon apologizes for this error. By HANNA WOODS Staff email@example.com The Student Government Association held its weekly meeting on Feb. 21 in University Center South. 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 on. Josh Kornberg communications senior and SGA president to add three additional microwaves. “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 longer.” 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 Hill. “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 funds. “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 $1,022. 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. the horizon SENIOR EDITOR Claire Munn firstname.lastname@example.org SPORTS EDITOR ourtney McKinley email@example.com ROFILES EDITOR rittany Powell firstname.lastname@example.org EATURES EDITORS tephen Allen email@example.com ryan Jones firstname.lastname@example.org ADVISER Ron Allman email@example.com STAFF Tiffany Adams Amira Asad Lynn Bailey Clare Bowyer Amanda Brown Monique Captan Bradley Cooper Michelle Cunningham John DiDomenico Brittany Elmore Taylor Ferguson Ethan Fleming Susan Greenwell Aysia Hogle Taliah Shabazz Ashley Warren S.B.

the horizon Sports Week of Feb. 20, 2012 3 Rivals race to rack up points By HANNA WOODS Staff firstname.lastname@example.org The Grenadiers celebrated homeoming with a 110-76 win over Alice loyd Eagles on Feb. 11 in the Activiies Building. 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 ine. 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 Spencer Allman, freshman guard, takes two shots for a technical foul inflicted on him by the Eagles. Allman was fouled late into the first half and helped carry the Grenadiers into an early 52-36 lead. 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.” Homecoming festivities brought out this season’s Photo by Hanna Woods largest crowd to support the Grenadiers. For Brown, he said it was important for the team to perform. “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 By BRITTANY ELMORE Staff email@example.com The IUS women’s basketball team pulled off a win against the Alice Lloyd Eagles during homecoming on Feb. 11, with a score of 63-60.
