a third

Alpha Epsilon

has finished atop the

standings of the Ace

Miller Memorial Boxing


But this time no other fraternity

is joining i there.

After tying for first place

in the overa l competitions of

2011 and 2012, the tournament

hosts used a Saturday

night comeback to win the

team trophy in the 33rd rendition

of the inter-fraternity

fights this weekend at the

Knoxvi le Expo Center.

Bener Oguz captured the

lightweight belt and was

among four SAE’s to win one

of the tournament’s 11 weight


The senior finance major

became the first from his fraternity

since 2006 to earn

a spot in the event’s Ha l of

Fame. To earn the honor he

had to outlast Wi l Morton

of Lambda Chi Alpha, which

entered Saturday two points

ahead of SAE.


O g u z ,

who started

boxing his

senior year in high

school, his championship

bout held the double

weight of personal achievement

and helping his team

earn an outrigh title.

“It feels good, man,” Oguz

said. “It’s been a lot of hard

work and I guess it just paid

o f. It’s a fun sport and I like

doing it. So I mean it was

easy because I love it.”

Receiving the delegation

as a Ha l of Fame honoree

requires winning three individual

titles over two weight

classes — a di ficult task considering

most fighters only

have four years to compete.

After securing the featherweight

belts in 2011 and

a class in 2013.

He said his

Saturday victory

probably signified the

end of his boxing career,

unless he stays in school for

a fifth year.

“To te l you the truth,

it rea ly helps me with my

grades,” Oguz said of the tournament,

which most boxers

train months in advance for.

me be a better person.”

His victory in

career belt.

Sheesly earned his Ha l of

Fame berth in 2012, but with

this year’s title he became one

of three four-time champions

since the tournament’s inception

in 1980.

“Man, it rea ly means a lot,”

Sheesly said just moments

after he was crowned 2013’s

Best Boxer. “One of three

people in 33 years, that rea ly

means a lot. I have had so

much suppor throughou this

brothers, everything. It’s

been incredible.”

“I keep te ling my guys,

there are two parts that are

“One is eating after weigh-ins,

and the second is getting your

UT Trustees meet, approve bonuses

David Cobb

Assistant News Editor

The fu l Board of Trustees

met on Friday and discussed

a variety of matters including

appointing a new chancellor

for UT Chattanooga, changing

the names of several UT

Knoxvi le’s buildings and

approving potential bonuses

for six UT executive officers.

The Board approved the

finalized version of their

“Performance and Retention

Plan,” which is designed to

motivate and reward several

UT executive officers

for completing a specific

set of goals. Two of the six

officers include Chance lor

Jimmy Cheek and UT System

President Joe DiPietro.

Should the officers accomplish

their goals, they wi l be

granted a bonus that could

be up to but no more than 15

percent of their base salary.

Cheek, whose base annual

salary as of July 1, 2012,

was $394,956, could receive

a bonus of up to $59,243.

DiPietro’s base annual

salary as of July 1, 2012,

was $445,567.50, leading to

a potential bonus of up to


One of the goals for

DiPietro is demonstrating

improvement in employee

satisfaction on the Employee

Organization offers

tips for scholastic


With Spring Break just

around the corner, many UT

students are planning trips a l

over the country instead of

focusing in the classroom.

This week, the Office of

National Scholarships and

Fellowships (ONSF) is offering

information sessions, a faculty

panel and a presentation

about a more formative trip

that goes far beyond spring

break’s beaches and actua ly

extends the classroom: the

Fulbright Scholarship.

The nationa ly competitive

scholarship receives between

10,000 and 12,000 applicants

each year, each hoping to earn

10 months o financial support

to study abroad after graduating

co lege. The 25 percent

of applicants who receive the

prestigious scholarships go on

to complete personal research

projects or teach English as a

second language in countries

a l over the world.

The main emphasis of the

Fulbright is cultural exchange,”

Michael Handelsman, director

of the ONSF, said. “A l

Fulbrighters are basica ly

ambassadors for the United

States. They’re committed to

learning about the host culture,

and in that process, are

sharing their own cultural traditions

and values.”

Five members of the UT

community earned Fulbright

Scholarships in 2011-2012,

leaving for the likes of Mexico

City and Paris. Handelsman

hopes that “Fulbright Week at

UT” sparks more of the same


Today, from 5:30 to 6:30

p.m. in Baker Center Room

118, and Tuesday, from 12:30

to 1 p.m. in the Baker Center’s

Toyota Auditorium, information

sessions wi l be offered to

a l students and faculty interested

in applying.

Nichole Fazio-Veigel, the

ONSF assistant director, said

that the sessions wi l provide

both a general overview and

some specific tips. The session

wi l also offer guidance

on negotiating the program’s

“hefty” website.

Dr. Handelsman, a 6-time

Fulbright scholar himself,

has plenty of history with

the Fulbright program. After

spending time in Brazil and

Ecuador as both a student and

a faculty member, Handelsman

called the rich experience


The opportunity to be

engaged in another culture,

not as just an observer but

as one who can become part

of a community … the whole

relationships shifts from thinking

about that other culture to

thinking with them,” he said.

“Something has happened to

you that you’re going to think

a bit differently, your priorities

change a little bit. … That’s

why people go, you’re not

doing tourism.”

TVC hosts first live SGA debate

The Volunteer Channel,

UT’ studen television station,

wi l host UT’s first ever live

SGA debate Tuesday at 8 p.m.

in the Baker Center’s Toyota

Auditorium, broadcasting on

campus cable channel 12.

The debate wi l feature discussion

between a l three SGA

parties: Amplify, Engage and

Baker-Atchley. Each president,

vice president and student services

director candidate wi l

have the chance to converse

with the other contenders in

the category. The format also

a lows for students and UT

media outlets to ask questions

of the nominees concerning

issues the student body cares


Kelsey Keny, producer of

TVC News, is one of the people

who co laborated to make the

event possible. Her enthusiasm

for the event and what it stands

for has been a driving force in

the debate coming together.

“I am so excited,” Keny, a

sophomore in journalism and

electronic media, said. “TVC

has done televised debates

in the past, but they didn’t

rea ly reach that many people.

It wasn’t benefitting anyone

because no one was rea ly getting

to interact with the candidates

and hear what they have

to say.”

The event wi l stream live

at www.utdailybeacon.com as

we l as on the TVC website,

where it wi l also be posted

afterward for students to

watch. One of their goals is for

students to be as informed as

possible when going in to vote

on Wednesday.

“When we were developing

the format and the questions,

we asked ourselves, ‘If I were a

student who didn’t know anything

about SGA or campaigns,

what would help me make that

decision? What would I need

to see or hear?’” Keny said.

“We would want to hear what

they stand for and o fer to the

student body as we l as check

their credibility to see if they

can fo low through with their


Lindsay Lee, the presidential

candidate from Amplify, hopes

the debate wi l educate students

and encourage them to

care about issues that SGA can

help with.

There is a crisis of apathy

when it comes to SGA, demonstrated

by the extremely low

voter turnouts in the past,”

Lee, a junior in mathematics,

said. “Only about 10 percent of

students voted in the campaign

last year, and that was the highest

it had been in a while. This

event wi l definitely help take

SGA out of the Shiloh Room

of the UC and actua ly into the

lives of the students it is supposed

to serve.”

Distinguised dean retires after

generation of service at UT

When Jan Wi liams came to

UT as a professor, the Soviet

Union had 14 years of life

remaining and Elvis Presley

wa sti l kicking.

Closer to home, Johnny

Majors was in his first year

as UT’s football coach and

the NCAA didn’t recognize

women’s basketba l as a sport

– although a driven 25-yearold

named Pat Summitt was

helping change that.

Wi liams had no intention

of staying on Rocky Top for

a whole generation, or even a

decade for that matter.

“I would’ve guessed that

when I came here I’d probably

be here five, six or seven

years,” he said.

But 36 years later – with the

Iron Curtain long gone and

Elvis living only in memories

and jukeboxes – Wi liams is

sti l hanging around the UT


Before retiring at the end

of February, he served as the

dean of UT’s nationa ly heralded

Co lege of Business


His promotion to that position

fo lowed his service in a

handful of other roles as he

vastly exceeded the prediction

he made in 1977 of how long

he would remain a Vol.

“It’s just been a rea ly good

fit for me and I don’t know

that I could point a finger at

exactly why,” Wi liams said

as he reclined at the desk in

his new o fice in the Stokely

Management Center.

“I just felt like in 1977

when I was considering coming

here, that it was just a

rea ly high potential school,”

he said. “The business school,

I thought, had a lot of potential

and it was an opportunity to be

a part of building that.”

For the last 13 years, the

Nashvi le native has directed

the business school, building

it both litera ly – through

overseeing the construction

of Haslam Business Building

– and philosophica ly through

the implementation of programs

like Global Leadership


As a result the co lege has

garnered national attention,

ranking 27th in the country

among public universities

according to a 2013 U.S. News

& World Report release.

On his watch, several individual

programs within the

co lege have attained top 10

national and international

placements by various publications.

For Wi liams, though, rankings

and recognition have not

been his motivation.

“I’m pretty convinced if we

do the right thing, build the

right curriculum, get good students,

have good faculty, build

good facilities - and business

school technology is huge - if

we have a l these things in

place, the rankings wi l pretty

much fa l,” Wi liams said.

There’s not a whole lot we can

do other than simply do our

jobs we l to make the rankings

get better and better.”

After a nationwide search

for his replacement, UT leaders

decided on Steve Mangum

to replace Wi liams.

The two had lunch together

recently, in what Wi liams said

was the first real conversation

they’ve had since Mangum’s

arrival from Ohio State.

“What are some of the things

you wished you’d gotten done

that you just didn’t have time

for, or for whatever reason?”

Mangum asked Wi liams.

“I don’t feel bad about not

getting everything done that

you could,” Wi liams told him.

There’s just a lo to do - it’s a

big school.”

One of his most most valuable

contributions can be seen

in his efforts to provide a

sense of community within the

co lege, which houses about

7,500 UT students within its

undergraduate and graduate


The creation of GLS, a program

designed to give highperforming

business students

an international perspective

within a tight UT community,

and Venture, a chance for “at

risk” freshmen to adapt to

co lege life and grow together,

were both overseen by

Wi liams and continue to be

Just four months after

extreme athlete Felix

Baumgartner jumped from the

edge of space in the world’s

highest skydive, many UT students

have tried their own

hand at the art of skydiving.

Matt Park, a former UT student,

has taken part in more

than 1,100.

Park, who left school before

graduating with a degree in

computer science to accept

a job with Celeris Networks

Consulting Group, made his

first jump on July 11, 2009.

He was hooked and said he

has since completed a few

hundred per year. Last year

alone he made 500 ascensions

and jumps.

The secret to his success,

Park said, comes from the

job he accepted at Celeris

Networks. It was a job, he

said, that he simply could not


“This actua ly involves my

computer job, believe it or

not,” he said. “The reason I

got an offer I couldn’t refuse

was because the guy that owns

the company I work for now is

actua ly a skydiver. I met him

through skydiving, and that’s

how I kind of obtained my

current job. In my contract

I’ve earned with the company,

I work Monday through

Thursday and then I sky dive

Friday through Sunday.”

Park, now a skydiving

instructor, said he wasn’t

always as keen on skydiving

as he is now, claiming that his

love for it has evolved through

the few years he has been

doing it.

‘Stand for Freedom’ raises awareness

Starting today, UT’s chapter

of International Justice Mission

(IJM) wi l take a stand for the

27 mi lion people around the

world held captive in modernday


IJM is an internationa ly

reaching human rights agency

and is headquartered in

Washington, D.C. Founded in

1997, it works to rescue victims

of violent oppression and

bring the law to bear on the

perpetrators of those crimes.

UT students involved with

IJM wi l be participating in

the organization’s nationwide

“Stand for Freedom” by standing

for 27 hours on Pedestrian

Walkway to raise awareness

of the pervasive modern slave


The Stand for Freedom is to

stand for those who can’t stand

for themselves,” said Benjamin

Wing, senior in materials science

and engineering, and fundraising

chair for UT’s chapter

of IJM. “We hope to give a

voice to people who otherwise

don’t have a voice.”

Though the ultimate goal of

the event is wide in scope, the

goals of UT’s participants are

much more specific.

The first step with any

change is awareness, and that’s

the main issue,” Wing said.

“We also hope to raise $2,700,

get at least 270 people participating

in this event, and

sign 1,000 signatures for a petition.”

The event began yesterday

with a promotional day, during

which IJM members were stationed

in the University Center

from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to

hand out flyers and sign volunteers

up for the event.

Today, the Stand o ficia ly

kicks off as volunteers converge

on Pedestrian Walkway

in shifts from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30


“Primarily, we’re going to

have a bunch of people standing

with signs that say ‘I stand

for freedom’ just to bring

awareness,” Wing said. “We’ l

also have, over to the side, a

place for donations. We’ l have

laptops set up so if people want

to donate and help us raise the

money, then they can help us

do that.”

The members of UT’s chapter

of IJM have a passion for

putting an end to modern slavery

and look forward to sharing

that with other students on

campus during this event.

“I hope tha this event raises

awareness and plants some

seeds of passion in people,”

Olivia Gross, freshman in

social work, said. “Most people

don’t understand how vast the

problem of human tra ficking

is, and some don’t know that it

sti l exists.”

IJM is not alone in its e fort

to raise awareness on campus.

organizations wi l be joining

Torchbearer casts shadow on green initiative

Students perform in singing competition

Singing and dancing wi l take place

center stage, as the 2013 A l-Sing competition

begins tonight.

A l-Sing, as the name implies, is a singing

competition between di ferent groups

of students. Nine groups wi l sing songs

in the styles of classic musicals, Broadway

love songs, music from the 1990s and

television theme songs.

The A l-Sing competition is coordinated

by A l Campus Events and is also

a part of the ACE Cup Competition.

Homecoming, Canricus and Vol Cha lenge

are also part of the competition.

The show starts tonight and Friday at 7

p.m. in the Cox Auditorium of the Alumni

Memorial Building.

Tickets are on sale now at $10 for UT

students with their student ID, $13 for

faculty and sta f, and $15 for the general

public. They can be purchased through

http://knoxvi letickets.com.

Erin Dyer is the director-chair for A l-

Sing. The senior human resource management

major has been a part of A l-Sing for

her entire co lege career.

“My freshmen and sophomore year I

actua ly participated with A l-Sing,” Dyer

said. “My junior year I joined ACE so I

was backstage for most of it. And then

this year, I got elected to be the directorchair

of A l-Sing.”

She added, “So I’ve been a part of

A l-Sing for a l four years in pretty much

every way possible.”

A l-Sing traces its roots back to 1932

when it was known as the A l-University

Sing. Its original purpose was to introduce

students to school songs, such as the

alma mater. The name was shortened in

the 1940s.

The theme for this year’s A l-Sing is

“Let’s Face the Music,” which is a tribute

to Irving Berlin’s 1936 song, “Let’s Face

the Music and Dance.” Dyer said that she

picked the theme to connect A l-Sing to

its roots as part of Volunteer lore.

“I kind of wanted to bring back that old

school tradition,” Dyer said. “So I took

a song from the 1930s that’s been used

throughout the years by Nat King Cole,

E la Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and most

recently Michael Bublé. I thought it was

cool that it’s a song that worked in the

1930s and it’ sti l relevan today.

“I wanted to use it as a way to tie in A l-

Sing to the tradition and the history of it.”

The competition is scored on several

di ferent aspects.

They are judged off of vocal performance

and clarity as we l as overa l

presentation,” Dyer explained. “In overa

l presentation, groups aren’t required

to do choreography … but every group

does tend to do some choreography just

because it gives that extra e fect.”

A panel of judges decides the winners

of the competition. The judges consist of

faculty, sta f, students and members of the

community, including professors from the

music department, RAs, faculty from the

Multicultural Center and music instructors

from local high schools.

The Student Government

Association wi l be holding

an interest meeting for those

wanting to join the organization.

Students with a passion

for UT and the desire to

get involved on campus are

encouraged to attend the

meeting, which wi l discuss

SGA elections today at 8 p.m.

in the UC’s Shiloh Room.

Election week does not start

until th early April, but hopefuls

for a position within UT’s

student senate, and those planning

to run for president, vice

president or student services

director, are required to attend

the meeting where the formal

information for earning a spot

on the ba lot wi l be discussed.

“In years past there might

have been a misconception

that it’s only open to people

that have already been contacted

or are officia ly running

with a political party,”

explained SGA election commissioner

Wi l Logan. “But

rea ly, it’s an avenue for us to

spread as much information

as we can about how to get

involved in SGA.”

Students unsure about running

for office or one of the

70-plus senate seats are welcome

to attend the meeting

and learn more about being

a part of the election season

or other avenues for campus


“A lot of the individuals that

are going to run for positions

are going to be present at this

meeting,” Logan said. “So for

someone who wants to get

involved in SGA but might

not feel comfortable running

for a senate seat or in another

capacity, these are good people

to ge to know and work with.”

At the meeting, Logan and

other members of the election

commission wi l cover a

42-pag election packet outlining

the rules and requirements

of running in the election.

A primary use of the meeting

wi l be for students to ask

questions so that the election

commission can begin clearing

up any possible issues and

remain focused on another

goal the commission has for

the 2013 SGA elections –

voter turnout.

“As an election commission,

that’s something we’ve rea ly

put on ourselves: to rea ly

make clear this year how big

of an impact voting makes,”

Logan said.

The year 2012 saw the Fuel

campaign sweep the top three

positions in SGA, with the

Revolt ticket not far behind.

A mixture of candidates from

both campaigns has comprised

the student senate in the 2012-

13 year.

The competition of campaign

season is something

Logan views as crucial.

“I’m a huge fan of it,” Logan

said. “I think competition is

a terrific thing, especia ly in

these elections. That’s why I’m

interested to see how many

individuals come out and

decide to run.”

make it sustainable,” D’Aprile said.

Fueling the never-ending flame comes with

drawbacks. The university paid $6,600 in 2011

for natural gas to keep the fire burning bright.

In addition to its costly upkeep, the emissions

produced by the burning natural gas have raised

alarm for several students.

The Torchbearer produces a staggering

amount of emissions every year, roughly 30.8

metric tons per year,” said D’Aprile. “The harm

the torch causes to the environment wi l not

help UT reach its ‘green’ goals.”

Most students see that, regardless of the

emissions of the Torchbearer, the light deserves

to burn on.

Terry Nowe l, a senior in biochemistry and

psychology and SGA vice president, feels the

Torchbeare represents more than just an ongoing

flame. To him, the Torchbearer’s purpose

is “to bring new students in and to continue

lighting the fire for students that are here.”

Some students share fond memories around

the Torchbearer. One of Nowe l’s most profound

memories involves serving as an Orientation

Leader and bonding with new UT students

around the statue. Despite the valuable tradition,

however, Nowe l recognizes a need to

change the torch’s energy source.

A few members of the campus community

have started proposing solutions that revolve

around artificial lighting or alternative fuel


“Some solutions include taking ou the flame

completely and replacing it with an artificial

flame composed of LED lights. We could also

plan projects that would o fset its environmental

footprint (planting trees, insta ling solar

panels, insta ling wind turbines, reducing the

waste of the university by increasing recycling),”

said D’Aprile. “Also, the university

could buy carbon credits to o fset the emissions.

Another good option is replacing natural

gas with recycled methane

from the water treatment plant by UT. This idea

would need further consultation with the plant

to evaluate its viability.”

Within UT’s goal of becoming a Top 25 university,

sustainability is as large of a priority as

For Amplify, Engage and Baker/

Atchley, the ro ler coaster that is the

SGA elections wi l continue for one

more day.

In a surprise turn of events,

the SGA Election Commission

announced that due to technical difficulties

in this year’s new voting

system, the results for the election

wi l be postponed until Friday. Po ls

wi l be reopened today for students

who were blocked from voting.

“We have run into one sma l situation

that is going to prohibit us from

unveiling the official results of the

SGA election tonight,” Will Logan,

the SGA Election Commissioner

and a senior in microbiology, said.

“When we were incorporating our

brand new voting system there was

a very sma l statistic of students that

were not able to vote.”

That “statistic” consisted of students

who had selected a strict privacy

setting when setting up their

NetIDs and passwords.

“When students generate their

NetIDs and passwords, they are able

to make those private,” Logan said.

“So essentia ly this system wasn’t

a lowed access to their passwords.

So that’s why their NetIDs and their

passwords were not synching up.”

This glitch was best summed up

by Associate Dean of Students Jeff

Cathey, who likened it to a someone

not wanting to have their name

appear in a phone book.

“A student can say that they don’t

want their name and information

listed in the UT Directory,” Cathey

said. “… These are a l students

who wouldn’t show up in ‘People


For this specific group of UT students,

and them alone, the po ls wi l

be reopened today at 8 a.m.

“We are slated to generate the

same ba lot and make it available

to these students that have theis

specific incident and a low them the

opportunity to vote,” Logan said.

“ . We want to emphasize that in

no way was the election flawed.

Everyone that voted was accounted

for, but we just wanted to make sure

that as a body, we are making this as

fair and as equal as possible.”

The commission was not informed

about the discrepency until the last


“Right now, we had had a few

issues brought to our attention by

students who were attempting to

vote,” Logan said. “A lot of the

issues we were able to resolve on the

spot. And we didn’t actua ly encounter

this issue until 4:30 (Tuesday)

afternoon, this specific incident.

There were students with solvable

issues, but this was the first unsolvable

issue w encountered.”

Logan was also adamant that this

problem was no through the fault or

error of anyone.

“This is due to a technical error

that is not resolvable by these students

or by any member of the

Election Commission or the Dean of

Students Office,” Logan said.

The commission also made note

that when the results are finalized,

the process wi l be the same as it

would have been yesterday.

“This body has to meet to certify

the results of the election,” Logan

said. “We wi l do the same thing at

3 o’clock (today) as long as the circumstances

we’ve laid out can be

incorporated. It wi l be certified by

this body and revealed to the campaign.”

For those working on the campaigns

themselves, the announcement

came as a surprise. But despite

the disappointment, some, like

Daniel Aycock, a strategic advisor

for the Amplify campaign and a

senior in accounting, were satisfied

with the commission’s decision.

“Of course we a l wanted results

(yesterday),” Aycock said. “But I

think this is the most responsible

way to handle a technical difficulty.

Those students deserve the chance

to cast their vote and we’ l just have

to wait until (Friday).”

Ultimately, Logan stressed the

need for the election, which Cathey

said had drawn the votes of nearly 25

percent of the undergraduate population,

to be fair for a l voters.

“A th end of the day, we wan to

say that this election was complete,

it was fair and it was equal,” he said.

Sophomore forward Jarne l Stokes

nine of which came in the second half.
