They were using their moneyfor student programming activities. Theyshould focus on giving students a voice.”The Children’s Center received a $24,432increase from the previous year, leavingthem with a budget of $128,006 from the StudentActivity Fee this year.Garvey-Nix said the SLC made this decisionto compensate for salaries, which werebelow market value.CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1but putting an end to the file sharing at therequest of the copyright.“The copyright has the right to pursue aresolution to get the file sharing stopped,”Lavagnino said. “We use this opportunity,not so much to protect the copyrighted materialbut we use it as an opportunity to teachstudents why this complaint was made.”Lavagnino said some file sharing may notbe intentional.“Part of the big problem with file sharingon the IU campuses is many students do noteven realize they are doing it,” Lavagninosaid. “When you download file sharing softwareonto your personal computer at homethe file sharing software has a default settingwhich automatically file shares when youconnect to the IUS network. “Mand said a complaint from the RIAAbegins the process of a pre-litigation settlementor possible court case.“The pre-litigation settlement is an opportunityto settle before they take you to court,”Mand said. “Nobody to my knowledge hassucceeded in court.”Lavagnino said if a student receives a letterfrom IU the student can remedy the situationwithin 24 hours and only face the $50fine from Indiana University. However, if asecond or third complaint is made, the studentmust face disciplinary actions from StudentAffairs.“If you receive a notice and do what weask in 24 hours, you will be fine. However ifyou take longer than 24 hours, your computerwill be disabled from the IU network untilyou follow the procedure we have asked youto complete.” Lavagnino said.Lavagnino said when a student is notifiedof a complaint they must go tohttp://filesharing.iu.edu/ and go through thetutorial so they can be educated about filesharing and the consequences that come withShe said the center’s operating costs comefrom students paying hourly rates for theirchildren to attend the center.She also said the reason some facultysalaries, which are below market value, don’tsee such a large increase is because they arenot funded by the Student Activity Fee.Other areas are not as controversial.Seuth Chaleunphonh, dean of StudentLife, said events funded by the fee will bepromoted better this year.“We have a better planned out calendar,”he said. “We’ll be doing more press releasesand marketing material out earlier so we canget a greater turnout at events.”Valerie Allen, Student ProgrammingCouncil recruitment coordinator, said eventswill be bigger this year.The SPC lost $1,187 from the previousyear, receiving $60,921 for this year.Allen said they do have a big budget andcan work around the decrease. “It won’tmake much of a difference,” she said. “Wecould’ve done better last year. We’re stillbringing in more expensive events.”Students busted for file sharingit. She also said if students receive a 2nd or3rd complaint the consequences are moresevere.“If you receive a second complaint youwill be blocked from accessing the IUS Networkon your personal computer for twoweeks,” Lavagnino said. “If you receive athird complaint you lose the privilege to connectyour personal computer to the IUS Networkpermanently. However, very rarelydoes anyone receive a third complaint.”Lavagnino said although a student maylose the privilege to connect via personalcomputer to the IUS network they can stilluse the computers in the computer labs.“If your computer is disabled, you stillhave your accounts and can still access thenetwork through the computers in the computerlabs.” Lavagnino said.Mand said even though the situation canbe taken care of with IU Southeast it doesn’tremedy the situation with the RIAA and ifstudents receive a letter from IU Southeastthey will most likely receive a pre-litigationsettlement from the RIAA.“The RIAA is a totally independent groupof people.” Mand said. “So not only will youowe IUS $50 for the information we had tosend back to ITSO, you are will most likely besent a pre-litigation settlement stating youowe the RIAA thousands of dollars, and youare still in trouble with Student Affairs.”Mand said although getting caught mayseem unlikely, the consequences are severeenough not to warrant taking the chance.“It is true you are one of an enormouspopulation out there but if you get singledout it can be a very expensive mistake,”Mand said. “So the best thing to do is not getyourself in that situation.”Prinz said he hopes students soon realizethe gravity of file sharing and the consequencesthat come with it.“This is something that should not be takenlightly,” Prinz said.Children’s Center’s policies may changeCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1operation.Chaleunphonh said the SLC is consideringchanging the hours, as well as opening theChildren’s Center to the public to help it relyless on Student Activity Fees.Chaleunphonh asked the senate to try toget more information from students to givethe SLC input on how to approach thechanges to the Children’s Center.He said the SLC hopes to make thechanges by next Spring, and the SLC wouldlook to local daycares and other IU campusesto model the new hours.The senate confirmed four new senatorsafter suspending a section of their bylawsthat would require them to consider the probationarysenators in an executive session.The new senators are Robbie Baker, computerscience sophomore, Joshua Garcia,political science freshman, Kristen Klayco,journalism junior, Amanda Denbo, businessmanagement sophomore, and LonnieMcHugh.Richard Sinnock, chemistry and businessmanagement junior, resigned from the senateand his position as senate chair.

Wade could beoverturned if McCain wins,”Schuster asked.But Clifford Staten, politicalscience professor anddean of social sciences, saidthe gains or losses of Democratsin the Senate woulddetermine the fate of nominatedconservative justices.“It would be difficult for aPresident McCain to get anySenate approval for veryconservative justices if theDemocrats increase theirmajority,” Staten said.Chris Coyle, political sciencefreshman, mentionedGenghis Khan and his hordes carried around flat patties of ground up mutton under their saddles to eat on the go.the closeness of the presidentialrace in Indiana.“The Selzer and CompanyPoll have McCain and Obamatied here,” Coyle said.Gugin said this was veryunusual for Indiana.“The last time a Democraticpresidential candidatecarried Indiana was in 1964,”Gugin said.Gugin also mentioned thePalin affect on the McCaincandidacy.“You’re really not seeingHillary Clinton votersswitching to McCain,” Guginsaid. “It’s been mainlyundecided Independent andRepublican women switchingto McCain.”Wolf blamed deregulationas a factor leading to thepresent state of the economy.“McCain’s mantra hasalways been deregulate,deregulate,” Wolf said.Gugin said that a president’spolicies have a resulton the economy.“President Clinton’s taxpolicies did have positiveresults on the economy duringhis administration,”Gugin said.Wolf said Palin is unqualifiedto be vice-president. Hecriticized her performanceon the ABC-TV Charles Gibsoninterview.Gugin questioned Palin’sresponse when asked by awoman what her skills were.“Palin didn’t have ananswer for her,” Gugin said.Schuster asked about freetradeagreements likeNAFTA.“Why hasn’t McCain beenhurt more because of hissupport of free-trade agreementswhich have caused jobloss,” he asked.Staten said the decline inunion membership nationwideis probably why thishasn’t been a larger issue.“This is a big issue for unionmembers,” Staten said. “Butunions are not the size theyused to be.”Abshire said the big elephantin the room no one istalking about is the race factor.“Most people will notadmit to a pollster, if they areaffected by race before voting,”she said.

The GoldenEagles served an ace on the finalpoint to close out the match, 3-2.Lilly said the Grenadiers tend toget comfortable with a lead and gointo cruise control.“They’re starting to get frustrated,”Lilly said. “We still have towork on trust.”Lilly also said the team needed toget going before conference playstarts.“I’m pretty mad,” Lilly said. “Iknow they’re better than whatthey’re showing.

Week of Sept. 22, 2008 Opinions The Horizon • Page 5Secrecy benefits nobodyI’m not entirely surprisedour police blotterseems to be a hit, but it isinteresting to see how studentsare intrigued withwhich of their buddies aregetting busted week toweek, and why they’re gettingbusted.It hasn’t been easy gettingit in here, though.After our first publicationof the blotter this semester,our access to it was noticeablyrestricted.Some entries weremarked with a stamp inred ink that read “Confidential,”and names wereomitted from almost all ofthe reports after we publishedit the first time.That’s why the blotter inIssue 2 was much thinnerthan Issue 1’s.After we sent a letter tothe IUS Police requestingopen access and citingIndiana state laws thatshow blotters as publicrecord, they have beencooperative in showing usthe reports. You’ll noticeour blotter is longer thisweek than it has been allsemester.I can’t really blame thepolice, though. It seemslike there’s still pressurefrom the school’s administrativeoffices keepingLettersDear Editors:I am very disappointed inthe manner IU Southeastrecently handled the naturaldisaster which hit our area.I would like to be able towrite that I am shocked that IUSoutheast remained openedwhile the majority of its studentswere out of electricity,the roads to the school wereblocked, and Floyd county wasunder a State of Emergency,but after attending IU Southeastfor many years, I havecome to learn that the universityhas a great disregard fortheir students’ safety.There have been a numberof times, in the past, when ourJerodClappsome departments fromcompletely disclosinginformation to The Horizon.Of course, this hasn’tbeen theonly timewe’vebeendeniedinformation.We’restill onlyallowedSenior Editor to getjlclapp@ius.eduinformationfromthe heads of some departmentson campus.Although they’re perfectlyqualified individuals, theycan’t always offer the kindof perspective that a goodnews story is supposed tohave.It’s been a difficultprecedent for us to overcomeas reporters. We’resupposed to keep our audienceinformed with what’shappening around them.It’s even more importantnow that we have peopleliving here.If anyone’s worriedabout looking bad, withholdinginformation looksworse than a willingness todisclose. Showing studentsget arrested for drinkingdoesn’t make the schoolregion has been under a stateof emergency and IU Southeasthas remained open, ignoringthe danger in which theyplace their students and thosein the community.Classes should have beencancelled on Monday. Our officialsdo not lightly issue a stateof emergency, and I don’tunderstand why IU Southeastis so flippant about such a seriousdirective.When school is not cancelledand the decision is leftup to the student, the studenttakes the risk of missing importantclass information, losingattendance points, and losingparticipation points, just toname a few consequences.look lax in its policies, itshows they take underagedrinking seriously.Speaking of confidential,we still don’t havemost of the names of whoreported the crimes in thisissue, or who was arrested.On reports involving theresidence halls, the reportsonly list “CA” rather thanthe name of the communityadvisers who report thecrimes. We’re not in thebusiness of pointing fingers,but people should beheld accountable for theiractions.I can’t see why thenames of communityadvisers have been omittedfrom the reports.Everyone living in the residencehalls knows communityadvisers areresponsible for reportingany illegal activity. Theyget free room and boardand are paid to keep studentssafe, which includesratting on them when theydecide to have a kegger.There was also a countof battery listed in lastweek’s blotter, but it wasmarked with a confidentialstamp. We don’t knowwhere it happened, whowas involved, or what kindof action was taken.Students need to knowwhat police do about suchincidents. How are studentsbeing protected?What measures are thepolice taking to keep thesethings from happening?Were these students whowere involved, or was itsomeone who doesn’t go tothis campus?Keeping students awareof any kind of suspiciousactivity can help to keepthem safe. When they havean idea of what to watchout for, they’re alreadyThese points might soundminor to some, but for the studentwho wants a great educationand wants to earn a goodgrade, these small items canadd up.IU Southeast has professedthat they “care” about their studentsand the community, butthis is a situation in whichactions speak louder thanwords.If an institution doesn’tclose when the majority of thestudents are out of power andare in dangerous traveling situations,it is showing it doesn’tcare about the students. Whenan institution doesn’t closewhen the county in which theyare located is under a state of‘[CommunityAdvisers] getfree room andboard and arepaid to keepstudents safe,which includesratting on themwhen theydecide to have akegger.’safer than they would be ifinformation were keptfrom them.As for us, our gripe isn’tthat we don’t have accessto any and all informationwhenever we ask for it,although that would benice. It’s that importantinformation is being withheldfrom students. Afterall, we are the ones whopay tuition and expect tobe served in return.Keeping importantinformation from us is adisservice.Universities are supposedto put students first,because they wouldn’texist without us. Keepinginformation from studentsshows how we’re second inline to the university’s ownself-image.Closing points of accessto information doesn’tmake students lose interest,it generates ideas ofdistrust and secrecy.This is a public institution,and what happenshere should be open to allof us.IUS doesn’t care about its students’ safetyemergency, it is showing itdoesn’t care about the community.The message, plain andsimple, is IU Southeast doesn’tcare about its students or itscommunity. I am not lookingforward to being a student atIU Southeast this winter.If the past is any indicator,we can all expect the doors toremain open regardless of theweather conditions. This hasbeen the case during previouswinters and during this mostrecent weather experience.What will it take for IU Southeastto care about its studentsand community?— Jennifer E. MayfieldChicago Cubs: It’sgonna happenFor as long as I can remember,I have been a fan of theChicago Cubs.They have supplied mewith uncountable heartbreakingmoments since the late’80s.My first vivid memories ofthe Cubs are from the 1989season, of ateam thatincludedGreg Maddux,AndreDawsonEricMcGuffinSports Editordemcguff@ius.eduand RyneSandberg,just to namea few.It is fittingthat myfirst memoriesof this cursed franchiseare of an extremely talentedteam that could not close thedeal. The 1989 Chicago Cubslost the National LeagueChampionship Series to theSan Francisco Giants, 4-1.Well, it’s almost 20 yearslater and the Cubbies havecontinued to break my heart,but this year, the 100 yearanniversary of the Cubs’ lastWorld Series victory, is theyear the Cubs break the Curseof the Billy Goat and return tothe World Series.This year’s edition of theChicago Cubs is built for postseasonsuccess.They have a deep and talentedstarting pitching rotation,including a trio of acesthat no team should want toface in a five or seven gameseries, a solid bullpen and oneof the best lineups in baseball.In addition, the Cubs areclearly the class of the NationalLeague, being seven gamesahead of the PhiladelphiaPhillies in the race for the bestrecord in the NL with 11games left to play.There is no team thatshould not fear the Cubs’starting pitching if they wereto have to face it in an Octoberseries.The first three pitchers inthe Cubbie rotation, CarlosZambrano, Ryan Dempsterand Rich Harden have a combined35 wins against only 12losses and 442 strikeouts.Harden was not a member ofthe Cubs until July when hewas acquired from the OaklandAthletics.History tells us teams withthis kind of starting pitchingare extremely tough to beat inOctober.If the starting pitching forthe Cubs is having an offnight, manager Lou Pinellahas plenty of arms in his arsenalwith one of the strongestbullpens in Major LeagueBaseball.Jeff Samardzija, CarlosMarmol and Kerry Wood havebeen very effective in the lateinnings, often coming on andclosing the door on opposingoffenses.Samardzija made his majorleague debut on July 25 andhas been lights out everysince. A fastball that reachesthe high nineties and animproving assortment ofbreaking pitches has helpedSamardzija to a solid 2.25earned run average and 21strikeouts in only 24 inningsof work.Marmol, the set-up man forKerry Wood, is arguably thenastiest of the Cubs’ reliefpitchers, looking unhittable attimes.Marmol was named to theNational League All-StarTeam for the first time in hiscareer this season and hasstruck out 113 batters in 84.1innings this season.He has one of the lowestERAs in the Cubs’ bullpen at2.67.The oft-injured Wood is notthe pitcher he once was, but hehas embraced the closer roleand has been very effective.He is tied for fourth place inthe NL with 31 saves in 31chances.Although Wood does nothave the same stuff he didwhen he struck out 20 battersin a game as a rookie, I ammore than comfortable whenPinella hands him the ball inthe ninth inning.I would argue there is not amore solid line-up top to bottomin baseball than that ofthe Cubs.The Cubs are near the topof the National League in allmajor statistical categoriesand have four players, AramisRamirez, Derek Lee, GeovanySoto and Mark DeRosa, intheir line-up with over 80 runsbatted in.This list does not includethe most dangerous lead-offman in baseball, Alfonso Soriano,who has 29 homerunsand 72 RBIs.The Cubs have receivedtimely hitting all season longand Ramirez had emerged asone of the best clutch hitters inthe game.All of the reasons listedabove are reason enough tounderstand the slogan for thisteam has been “It’s GonnaHappen,” but there has been adifferent feel to this seasonthan in any I can remember.In the past, once one thinggoes wrong with the Cubs,things seem to spiral out ofcontrol, but that has not beenthe case this year. Just recentlythe people were starting towrite the Cubs off after theylost eight of nine games, butunlike the Cubbies of pastyears, they bounced back,winning five of their next sixgames.Thursday’s game was agood microcosm for this season.The Cubs trailed theBrewers 6-2 heading into theninth inning. Soto tied thegame with a three-run homerunwith two outs in the bottomof the ninth inning andthe Cubs went on to win whenDerek Lee hit an RBI single inthe bottom of the twelfthinning.They refused to say die, justas they have all season.Only time will tell if this isthe year the Cubs return to theWorld Series, but if they don’tdo it this year, it may neverhappen.I’ll bet I’m not the first personto say that.There are 293 ways to make change for a U.S. dollar.


Week of Sept. 22, 2008 Profiles The Horizon • Page 6Academic SuccessCenter welcomesWilliam McGuireBy KRISTINA BLUELStaff Writerkcbleuel@ius.eduWilliam ‘Bill’ McGuire, director of the AcademicSuccess Center, is new to his position,which he began in March.McGuire said his purpose in working forthe Academic Success Center is to make a differenceto the students.“What’s really important is helping studentsdiscover who they are and where theyare going,” he said. “Teaching them how tomake the decisions that will get them to theirgoals is what matters to me.”McGuire has advised for more than 25years. He taught biochemistry, genetics,introductory chemistry and problem solvingclasses for 20 years before that.He has lived in many different places aswell.“When I came for my interview at IUSoutheast, I thought this would be a place Iwould really like to work and live,” he said.“I got the call offering me the position. Itwas a 2,100 mile move, but I had alreadymade the decision,” McGuire said. “Youknow you have made the right decisionwhen everything falls into place, and that iswhat happened.”“The people are wonderful. I haven’t metanyone at IUS that I have not liked,” he said.“I actually have not met anyone in Indianathat I have not liked. Over the years, I haveworked with several hundred advisors, theadvisors here are definitely the best.”The staff in the Academic Success Centersaid he is enjoyable to work with.“Bill is a fantastic supervisor,” MattSpringer, coordinator of the Office of DisabilityServices, said. “We can come to him withany questions we have and he will offergood, constructive feedback. It is enjoyableworking with Bill because he has a goodsense of humor, yet is committed to studentsuccess.”Kim Well, record specialist of the AcademicSuccess Center, said, “Bill is very supportiveof his staff and is attentive to our concerns.He is really great about getting us theresources we need.”McGuire said he feels strongly that who aperson is inside is more important than whatone does for a living.“In the Academic Success Center, thingshappen because of the people we are, notwhat we do. I chose advising, because it’swhat I do,” he said. “Helping students findclasses and informing them is the leastimportant. Helping people find out thingsabout themselves they did not know, such ashaving more potential than they thought isthe important part.”McGuire said helping students be moresuccessful is what he’s all about.“When I was in Kansas, I was advising astudent that had been academically dismisseda few times,” he said.“She had many problems, substanceabuse, family abuse. She then started to fixthings in her life. She went to rehab, movedout of her parents’ house. She and I workedtogether and made up a class schedule forher. Well, a week before the semester began,she came to me and said she had to quitbecause she could not pay the tuition, herfinancial aid had ran out and she was not eligiblefor any more loans. I looked at her andsaid, ‘I will pay your tuition and you do notWilliam ‘Bill’ McGuirehave to repay me, if you finish the semesterwith a GPA of 3.5 or higher.’ She finished thesemester with a 4.0. Sometimes you can makea difference.”“He’s very easy to work with,” DebbieVietzke, front counter office assistant of theAcademic Success Center, said. “He caresabout the people who are working for him.”McGuire said results depend on the choicesyou make.“My message to students is we are all givenopportunities to move toward the personwe want to be,” he said. “Whether we takeadvantage of those opportunities, is up tous.”Adult Student Center nontraditional resourceBy DARIENNE ARCURIStaff Writerdarcuri@ius.eduNontraditional students may come from avariety of backgrounds and experiences, butshare a common drive to complete, or further,their education.At IU Southeast, these students have aplace to call their own, and a staff memberfocused on helping them succeed.Kimberly Pelle is the manager of AdultStudent Services and Coordinator of NontraditionalStudent Programs. Many nontraditionalstudents at IU Southeast make use ofthe Adult Student Center, located on the secondfloor of University Center South, andopen 24 hours a day.“I think the Adult Student Center isimportant to the retention of these students,because when life throws you a curve ball,school will be the first thing they take offtheir plate. Having the support of advisersand other students that are in their same situationhelps to keep them here,” Pelle said.Nontraditional students make up about 42percent of the student body at IU Southeast.The National Center for Education Statisticsdefines a nontraditional student as one whodelays enrollment, attends part time for atleast part of the academic year and works fulltime while enrolled in college, among othercriterion.“To me, the nontraditional student has prioritiesin their lives other than school,” Pellesaid. “For example, if I asked a traditionalstudent, ‘What is your main priority?’ theywould say, ‘Getting my collegeeducation.’ But a nontraditional studentwould say, ‘My family, my children, my job.’There are other priorities in their livesthat are really more important than school.”Chris Robertson, nursing junior, is marriedwith two young children and a third onthe way.He takes 12 credit hours per semester andworks full time as a massage therapist.“I really don’t know how I do it,” he said.“Somehow, it all just works. The key is mywife, because she does a lot too.”Robertson said he wants to earn his degreeso he can get a better job to provide for hisfamily.He said he uses the Adult Student Centera lot because there, he doesn’t have to bridgea generation gap.Pelle said she has found nontraditionalstudents enjoy being around a group of theirpeers.‘The encouragement, thesupport, the shoulder to cry on,can mean a great deal.’Kimberly Pellemanager, Adult Student Servicescoordinator, NontraditionalStudent Programs“The encouragement, the support, theshoulder to cry on, can mean a great deal,”Pelle said. “And it’s important to have thatplace to come when they need to get awayfrom it all. They make connections with otherstudents in there. They might not feel socomfortable hanging out in the game room orthe coffee shop. They know they can come uphere, sit quietly alone or with friends and dotheir homework.”Theresa Haskins-Smith is pursuing a master’sin liberal studies with a concentration ingender studies.“A lot of times we get tied up in saying,‘I’m too old to do this or that.’ Age has nothingto do with it,” she said. “I think learningis a life-long process.”Haskins-Smith can frequently be found atthe Adult Student Center, and said Pelle is a“great lady.”John Duerr is a business management junior,with a minor in communication, andserves as an Orientation Leader on campus.He started school at IU Southeast in fall 2006,after two years of active duty in the Army.Duerr said that for him, the advantage to notstarting college straight out of high school isthat he had time to relax and think aboutwhat he wanted to do.“Going in the military gave me a chance togain discipline, so I can come in here andmaintain focus and a full-time job, becauseI’ve still got to make the bills,” he said.Duerr said he’s in the Adult Student Centertwo or three nights a week, and most ofthe day on Sundays.“I like it because it’s quiet, without a lot oftraffic going through. I also like the speakers[on the computers] because some of thecourses I’m taking require me to listen tothings. If no one’s in here then I have ampleopportunity to do that,” Duerr said.Pelle has designed and promotes programsfor adult students at IU Southeast suchas “Parent’s Night Out,” where students withchildren may drop off their kids for threehours.She provides activities for the children,and the student parents get free time to dowhatever they want.Pelle also provides computer assistance toless tech-savvy students who use the AdultStudent Center.“I think nontraditional students are thebomb,” Pelle said. “I think they make the collegeexperience for the professors, for theyounger students, for the staff, much better,because nontraditional students are soinsightful.”School of Businessdean makes plansfor grant moneyJay WhiteBy KRISTINA BLUELStaff Writerkcbleuel@ius.eduJay White, dean of the School of Business, wants theSchool of Business to keep getting recognized for theirachievements.The School of Business was ranked nationally by BusinessWeek for its part-time MBA program.“It was my first semester as dean and I was very proud.The School of Business is now 18th in the nation and thirdin the midwest,” White said. “No other schools in the area,including [University of Louisville], have been ranked byBusiness Week.”White was promoted to Dean of the School of Business inAugust 2007 after being the director of the graduate businessprogram, which he began January 2006.White is originally from Louisiana, where he attendedLouisiana University and received his MBA in finance andcommercial banking.“From day one of my freshman year, that was my major.I knew what I wanted to do from the beginning,” Whitesaid.White then received his doctoral degree in finance fromthe University of Mississippi. His first position after earningthis degree was at Murray State University, where Whitewas an associate professor of finance for four years.White said being the dean is very different.“I like it. But, I won’t lie, I do miss the classroom,” hesaid. “I am pleased to able to serve at this capacity.”White is responsible for the School of Business’ accreditation,scheduling issues, hiring faculty, promotional programsand events and finding answers for faculty and staff.“The most important thing is that I do whatever needs tobe done for the faculty to be successful at research and inthe classroom,” he said.Rebecca Flowers, administrative office assistant, saidWhite is making definite positive changes for the School ofBusiness. They have started to revamp the office because itneeded a change, she said.“I find him to be highly effective with students,” shesaid. “Whenever we cannot find the answer to a questionthat a student needs help with, he will come and help. It isrefreshing to be able to get help from the top. He is verycompetent and responsive to any situation that is broughtto him.”The gift the School of Business recently received comes tobe about $1.1 million. Part of the money is going toward atrading lab and the other part is going toward a speakerseries.“The trading lab is basically going to teach the studentsapplied finance. The students can engage in simulated, andhopefully one day, real stock trade,” White said. “Peoplemake different decisions when money is real. We haven’tdecided where to put [the lab] yet, but we are thinking HillsideHall, room 102.“The speaker series will have individuals from all overthe country. This will be helpful to not just the School ofBusiness, it will also be a great resource for the campus ingeneral and the community,” he said.White said he is always looking for ways to improve theschool and have fun at the same time.Nebraska is the only state in the union that has a unicameral legislature.

IU Southeast has startedpatching up.With roofs torn off and parts of brokentrees scattered throughout the campus, thiswas substantial damage.However, not many departments werenegatively effected.“I was able to come in Monday morningand execute all my duties,” Basil Mumaw, ITOffice Services assistant, said.Larry Mand, vice chancellor of InformationTechnology and Community Engagement,said he was pleased there was no damageto campus technology.“The campus does not have much exposedtechnology equipment,” Mand said.The Activities Building received somedamage.“The Activities Building was closed onMonday for a short period,” Pat Mrozowski,director of Athletics, said, “however wereopened that same day.“The building had minor roof damage,though we never lost power or hot water.
