The Rambler Opinions April 30, 2003 3 Degree plan problems? Read on The rumor around campus is, if you want to get your degree plan in time, you had better request it your freshman year. But before you give the evil eye to the workers in the Registrar's Office, you may want to focus your attention elsewhere. Roberta Marley, Texas Wesleyan's Degree Plan Coordinator, states that although she cannot blame anyone, the focus should not be just on her. Although she admits that the chaotic work of preparing seniors for grad- uation may set her work back a little, she states that it usu- ally only takes her two to three weeks to put together a degree plan for a student. So, what's the hold up? Students complain that it takes several months maybe even a semester, to receive their degree plans. You may need to ask your adviser that ques- tion. Marley states that some advisers keep degree plans for a long period of time before sub- mitting them back to the Registrar's Office and the student. M...

4 April 30, 2003 Campus Life The Rambler Wesleyan's second national fraternity arrives on campus James Haney SPORTS EDITOR As of April 21, Wesleyan has gained a new, national social fra- ternity. Local fraternity Sons of Sakkara (S.O.S.), established in 1996 by the ex-members of Sigma Phi Epsilon, made the decision to merge with a national fraternity. The two that showed the most interest were Kappa Alpha Order and Delta Sig. Members of the Kappa Alpha Order came and talked to the members of S.O.S., and of the 16 members, 13 voted in favor of merging with KA, only two voted against the move, and one abstained. A group of 15 interested men, S.O.S. members and a few new recruits, met on the 21 st to get pinned as KA's. The men that were pinned serve as the founding fathers of the Wesleyan chapter, and upon signing, became the first Wesleyan students to enter a brother- hood boasting 121,000 alumni since its establishment by Robert E. Lee in 1865. Most hope that the addition of a secon...

The Rambler Shorts April 30, 2003 5 Amanda Kashuba earns Co-Player of the Week Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF The Red River Athletic Conference honored Amanda Kashuba, first baseman and pitcher for the Lady Rams' softball team, for her outstanding play during the week of April 14 to April 20, according to a press release. Kashuba, a senior from Mansfield, played splendid- ly from the batter's box and inside the circle on the week. Her inspired play earned the first conference Co- Player of the Week award for her this season despite the team's 1-3 record during that span, according to a press release. In her only pitching appearance of the week, Kashuba struck out eight Northwood University Lady Knights and only surrendered three hits, one of which was a homerun that resulted in the sole Lady Knight run of the game. Kashuba's performance in the circle aided the Lady Rams to a 3-1 notch in the W column, which was their only victory of the week. She also allowed only one walk. Kashuba le...

2 October 9, 2002 News The Rambler Billboards sending a message throughout the Metroplex Elsbeth Willhite STAFF WRITER The university has debuted a new bill- board campaign with 36 locations through- out the Metroplex. The campaign, targeting young people between the ages of 18 and 25, was designed to bring awareness to the community about Texas Wesleyan, to send the message that a higher education is "within reach," school officials said. The university, with only 40 percent traditional students, hopes the billboards will bring in more Freshmen. ClearChannel Outdoor provided Wesleyan with the billboards, which have an estimated value of $150,000, as a public service. The graphics were designed in part by ClearChannel Outdoor and Wesleyan's Office of Communications. There are three different designs all bearing the university's gold-and-blue colors and the Methodist flame. The first design promotes the universi- ty's general education plan. The second dis- plays Wesleyan's graduate ...

The Rambler Opinions September 10, 2003 3 New resident meal plan sours faces and attitudes This article is in the wrong section. If every member of the human race is in agreement on an issue, then in all practicality, our singular resounding voice should be regarded as factual. It brings me no pleasure to immor- talize this voice journalistically, but much like death, disease, poverty and hangovers, there is no denying the fact that Dora's cafeteria does exist, and, fur- thermore, it stinks. Don't misunderstand me. For the most part, aside from the occasional skimpy distribution of gruel, the employ- ees are warm, friendly and helpful. They really are the silver lining to the ever- darkening cloud that is their place of employment. But sometimes, you just don't "want _____ to go where everybody knows your name," and instead would settle for going somewhere to "eat something that you won't want to regurgitate."

4 September 10, 2002 Campus Life The Rambler Provost assumes new role as search begins for successor Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF At a faculty meeting held by President Harold G Jeffcoat on Aug. 28, Jeffcoat announced that Dr. Douglas Nancarrow has "stepped aside" from his posi- tion as provost and senior vice president of operations to become assistant to the president for grants and contracts. Jeffcoat said later in an interview that he was "disap- pointed" with Nancarrow's deci- sion. "1 regret his resignation. The university is going through a lot of change right now, and 1 was confident he could help us through that." Nancarrow, however, was unavailable for comment. Jeffcoat said that this deci- sion was "entirely [Nancarrow's] initiative." Faculty members who chose to speak only through anonymity, however, said a fac- ulty and staff meeting was planned to register votes of no confidence in the former provost. A few of these faculty members complained that Nancarrow fired membe...

The Rambler Sports September 10, 2003 5 Lady Rams open season with confidence-building victories Sara Southerland STAFF WRITER The Lady Rams Volleyball Team opened its season Sept. 2 with a 30-18, 30-28, 28-30, 30-16 win in Durant, Okla., against the Southeastern Oklahoma Lady Savages. Wesleyan's starting lineup consisted of junior setter Cortney Johansen, junior middle blocker TifYany Porterfield, soph- omore middle blocker Rachel Loftin, sophomore defensive specialist Susan Taylor, junior outside hitter Rat Williams, and freshman outside hitter Sara Southerland. The Lady Rams started the first game with several service runs and intense domination on the court. In games two and three, both teams rallied back and forth for a tight win. The Lady Rams regained focus in game four and finished the match with a 30-16 victory. "Tonight we were able to spread the court and run through all of our options, head coach Rick Johansen said.

6 September 10, 2003 Sports The Rambler Women's soccer off to brilliant start once again Damien McBrien STAFF WRITER After two 4-3 victories in their opening two games, game three for the Lady Rams marked the visit of a very physical McMurry University Lady Indians team on Sept. 3. After only eight minutes of play, a well-placed cross from Jay Carrion provided a tap in for Uduma Ogidi, who scored her first goal of the season. This placed a bit of pressure on the Lady Indians, which paid off ten minutes later in the form of a well-worked, Crystal Pena corner kick that allowed Ogidi punish McMurry yet again with a neat finish and her second goal of the game. With a 2-0 deficit, the frustrated Lady Indians knew they were losing grip of the game and started to play with more aggression. This, however, did not affect the Lady Rams. At twenty-nine minutes, a near replica Pena corner kick saw Jessica Killen run in to score and put the Lady Rams in total control. In the 40th minute, Carrion...

8 September 10, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler I'll tell you what to like, and it's Radiohead It is my goal with this column to be unlike most other music critics. Criticism, as I see it, is a self-serving art form that allows the critic to exert esoteric jargon to alienate their target audience. This is inher- ently wrong for several reasons, but mainly because everyone has an opinion and is entitled to one. But not here, folks. You don't have to have an opinion because I'll tell you what to like. All joking aside, my first assignment was to review the British band Radiohead's sixth ___________ studio album, Hail to the Thief. As a longtime fan, I jumped at the chance, and, to be truthful, it's a bit difficult for me to give an unbiased opinion. However, 1 will try. It was a much-anticipated but heavily criticized release, as most Radiohead albums have been since I997's OK Computer. The band has set a standard for releasing original, but often hard-to-reach albums. To put it bluntl...

2 September 17, 2003 News The Rambler Vermillion and Morehouse return to Wesleyan as professors for the theater and music departments Alex Vorse STAFF WRITER For the past two years, Wesleyan's theater stu- dents went without a professor who could teach technical classes. Texas Wesleyan graduate Brian Stevenson worked as staff technical director, but he could not teach in class because he did not have faculty status. Students with emphasis in tech needed a qualified teacher. Meanwhile — in the backwater town of Monroe, La. — a veteran technical master, Judd Vermillion, was itching to get back to Texas. Vermillion grew up in Houston and lived all over the state. After earning a bachelor of arts in theater from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in Odessa, Vermillion spent years working community and local professional theater. After raising a family — with wife Louise, daugh- ter Jessi, and stepson Nick Frame — Vermillion returned to school and earned a master's degree in fi...

The Rambler Opinions September 17, 2003 3 Computer lab gets bad face lift, Joan Rivers style As the present school year gets under way, there is a universal theme of change floating over the campus. Numerous employees were given the axe before school started, as well as the entire security staff. There has even been buzz about higher prices in the cafeteria. But there is one area where numerous changes have occurred, the infamous computer lab. From a cosmetic viewpoint, the computer lab looks the same. No fancy remodeling or refurbishing of the com- puters has been done; the entire makeover is centered on the policies in the lab. All students must now present their new l.D. and sign in before entering. Last year, a lot of people just blew off the sign-in part, so 1 guess showing your l.D. pretty much guarantees you'll be offering up the old John Hancock at the door. Students will also have to log in on the computers, which will track a 300- page-per-month copy limit. Although this h...
