Studio Theatre to hold auditions for Fall comedy production [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 September 1998
Studio Theatre to hold auditions for Fall comedy production By Valerie Trost staff writer Attention Behrend students: the Studio Theatre is putting on a brand new production this Fall. This Pulitzer Prize winning production, Crimes of the Heart, is a dark comedy written by Beth Henley. Crimes of the Heart also won the New York Drama Critics award establishing Beth Henley as a major contributor to the world of women theatre writers. The play looks into the lives of three McGrath sisters who grow up in the small town of Hazelhurst, Mississippi. This imaginative production takes a lighthearted look at the criminal aspects of heartache (hence, the title). Abuse, affairs, suicide, and birthday celebrations all greet the McGrath sisters during this one day reunion in the town in which they grew up. Beth Henley provides a production quite worthy of its awards. It is sure to be shocking, disturbing, innovative, and hilarious for both the audience and performers. If any student is in...
Goo Goo Dolls to play at Behrend [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 September 1998
Goo Goo Dolls to play at Behrend By David Young staff writer Students are constantly complaining of boredom at Penn State-Behrend. However, they should realize that there are more things to do than any one person can handle here on campus. One of the more popular things to do on campus is to join a fraternity or sorority. There are many Greek organizations on campus to rush. For those of us who are not athletically inclined enough to be on one of Behrend's varsity teams, intramurals are a great way to have fun and meet people. There are new intramurals every season. If you enjoy sports there is something for you. Anything from sand volleyball to soccer is available to students. If you're not into all the running and physical activity required by most sports, but you still want to stay in shape, the weight room is the perfect place for you. The weight room offers a variety of free weights and fitness machines. Treadmills, stationary bikes, and step climbers are there to use. ...

Review: Dead Man on Campus [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 September 1998
Review: Dead Man on Campus By Michael Coursey staff writer The joint venture between Paramount and MTV pictures, Dead Man on Campus, is an overall enjoyable experience. It stars Tom Everett Scott, who previously starred in the Tom Hanks project, That Thing You Do, which was based on an Erie, PA, band that made it big. Scott stars as Josh, a nerdy, straight-laced bookworm on an academic scholarship in a six-year medical program. Co-starring along with Scott as his roommate is Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Gosselaar plays Cooper, a privileged son of a toilet-cleaning businessman who is just at school to party and escape the realities of life. The film opens with Josh trying to rest and get ready for the first day of classes, while Cooper brings in twenty or so people to party in their room. Cooper seems to be so fixated with his five foot tall purple bong that he continues to fire up throughout the movie. Meanwhile Josh meets Rachel, an attractive auburn-haired coed, who is an enjoyabl...

Get into the SWING of things [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 17 September 1998
Get into the SWING of things Editor in chief of SWING magazine visits Behrend By Ayodele Jones managing editor "I wanted to read about 'kick ass' people, amazing people out there who do the coolest things," said founder, publisher and editor-in-chief of SWING magazine, David Lauren. This was the main reason why Lauren started SWING magazine while a sophomore at Duke University. Lauren, who admitted that he was nervous, was the first installment of the Speaker Series on September 15 in the Reed Lecture Hall. Tired of reading articles about nothing from the school newspaper "The Chronicle," Lauren and a few other students decided to create an alternative medium to voice the concerns and issues that twenty-somethings would want to read about. Equipped with no money, Lauren and fellow Duke students went around campus and the community asking for donations to further their cause, finally receiving a four thousand dollar grant from the University. The first issue covered stories...
Stressed out students can get help at Behrend [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 17 September 1998
Stressed out students can get help at Behrend By Amanda Rush staff writer "Stress is that thinking-feeling that I am out there by myself and have to go on when all by myself I am probably not up to the task." This quote, from The Voice of Shame, by Robert G. Lee and Gordon Wheeler, sure explains how some of us sometimes feel. In everyday life, everyone experiences stress. Stress can now be considered a major health hazard that contributes to the five leading adult killers in the country: heart attacks, cancer, lung ailment, accidents, and suicides. Most people turn to psychiatrists for help in dealing with stress. More than 80% of psychiatrists' patients suffer from stress related symptoms. When stressed the body gears itself into a 'fight or flight' reaction by speeding up the heart rate, raising blood pressure. All draw on maximum energy to deal with the crisis. Although adrenaline helps you survive in 'fight or flight' it does have negative effects. Some short term effect...
