4 February 25, 2004 Campus Life The Rambler With a love for teaching, Neeley inspires students Sara Southerland CAMPUS LIFE EDHVR Always a smile on her face, Dr. Stacia Neeley is happy where she's at. Neeley grew up in West Texas and is the daughter of a fifth-genera tion farmer and rancher. A strong trace of "farm-girl feminism" influ- ences her scholarly interests and keeps her Wesleyan. I have taught at ASU, TCU, and TCC [Tarrant County College], and the student populations of those schools do not compare to Wesleyan in diversity and student engagement. I find that students at Texas Wesleyan are comfortable with who they are and have a pretty clear vision of where they want to go and why. They are not constantly trying to be what society "It is the supreme art of expects or what their the teacher to awaken joy backgrounds have out- in creative expression and knowledge." —Albert Einstein yearning for home. As the only girl for miles, Neeley spent hours writing and sewing bindings ...

The Rambler Campus L ife February 25, 2004 5 Service with a smile: The cheerful Ms. Sammie Ever had a rough morning? The hustle and bustle of the day put you in a bad mood and the last thing you want to do is smile? Chances are with one stop at the Coffee Kiosk could turn your frown upside down. Sammie Miner, commonly known as "Ms. Sammie," man- ages the Coffee Kiosk, locat- ed at the School of Business at Texas Wesleyan University. Ms. Sammie is native to Fort Worth and came to Wesleyan in September 2001 as the catering manager for Twelve Oaks that currently serves the campus dining facilities. She catered all major campus events includ- ing those held by the presi- dent, board of trustees, alum- ni and for graduation cere- monies. Ms. Sammie began work- ing at the Kiosk last fall. "My job is to serve coffee and pro- vide good customer service... If there's anything that I could do to brighten some- one's day I'm there," said Ms. Sammie. She went on to say, "I like to smile and I l...

February 25, 2004 The Rambler Rams continue winning streak, now at six in a row Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF The Lady Rams continue to be near per- fect lately behind head coach Stacy Francis, as they have won their last six consecutive contests against conference foes. These wins include three games over the last week, to improve their record to an impressive 18-9 overall and 14-6 in Red River Athletic Conference play. The third-place Lady Rams defeated Jarvis Christian at home by a count of 65-54 on Feb. 19. The Lady Rams followed that performance with a nail-biting 69-66 win over Texas College in Tyler on Feb. 21. The Lady Rams then finished the week in superi- or fashion by routing Dallas-based Paul Quinn on Feb. 23 by a palindromic score of 85-58. Junior guard Johnna Flemmons scored 15 points and junior Shayla Coleman tallied 11 points to lead the Lady Rams past Jarvis, despite the Lady Bulldogs' early 20-12 lead with about eight and a half minutes left in the first half.

•• ■' •Ak' ■r -f • The Rambler Sports February 25,2004 7 Hacky Sack: Brian Michael SPORTS EDITOR Some people say that my generation is lazy. All we do is sit around and watch T.V. and play computer games. Parents are always telling us to go outside and get some fresh air, but all we want is to keep from being bored, without exerting ourselves. One answer to this dilemma, invented in 1972 by a man named John Stalberger, has become the signature sport of generation X. But what is hacky sack exactly? First off, no, it's not a cult, at least so far as 1 can tell. The grungy teenagers standing in a circle smoking cigarettes are actually getting some small amount of exer- cise. The object of hacky sack is much the same as volleyball. Players must keep the "hack" from touch- ing the ground without using their hands. Every other part Talkin' 'bout my generation of a player's body can be attended Cornerstone, a used, but if you touch the hack with your hands you get "pegged" by the first per...

Saxton singing The Black Swan from Menotti's opera, The Medium, and each perform- ance - Mark Appling on classical guitar, Jozef Bobula play- ing Bach and the fingerings of pianist and instrumental chameleon Courtney Guyon - tickled the ears of Monday evening's impressed audience. Given only the wonderful acoustics of Martin Hall and their individual talents, student performers confidently dis- played their enthusiasm, dedication and loyalty to their pas- sion.

2 March 3, 2004 News The Rambler Ethics team, from page 1 fessor, and Mary Anne Clark, professor, of biology participated as well as Ann Reed, assistant professor of education and the elementary field. "It's a pretty amazing event," McManus said. "It really challenges you to think on your feet," he explained, and "encourages [students] to go beyond their gut feeling." Dr. Linda Carroll, assis- tant professor of English and ethics team faculty sponsor, said that they hope to get freshmen, sophomore and juniors involved next year. "The experience will not only enhance students' criti- cal thinking skills, but will expose them to ideas beyond their own personal experi- ences — including Wesleyan experiences," Carroll said. Wesleyan's participation in the event stretches back to the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics' sec- ond meeting in 1996. The Pre-Professional program funds the trips, McManus said, and they have been very "supportive to send a team." "It's an impressi...

A night of glamour, fashion, laugh- ter and, of course, awards, was a success yet again. The host for the night was Billy Crystal, who introduced all the award nominated movies by bursting into song, with his own renditions of Maria and My Favorite Things, and many more well known songs. In O.C. Armstrong Hall, there gathered five students, including me, in the lobby to view these annual awards of excellence. This "Academy Awards Party" was off the hook, let me tell you.

Ibrahim Salih is a man of extraordinary achievements. He has been, and is, an emi- grant, a Ph.D., a writer, a social activist, an award-winning teacher, a husband and a father, and his resume reads like the combined accomplishments of several people. Salih was born in Kyrenia in the Republic of Cyprus, a Mediterranean island south of Turkey. He immigrated to America in 1959, when he was 18. A lover of politics and diplomacy, he attended the University of the Pacific in California, where he earned a bachelor's degree in political sci- ence in 1963. He earned a master's in middle east area studies and a doctorate in internation- al studies from American University in Washington, D.C., before becoming a naturalized citizen in 1969. During this time, Salih exposed his tal- ents as a writer to the general public. Beginnin...

The Lady Rams stayed hot, and Shayla Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF m The Lady Rams continued their hot streak the last two games with wins over Bacone College, 70-45, on Feb. 28 at Homecoming and Langston University, 60- 58, on Mar. 1 to improve their winning streak to eight straight, their overall record to 20-9 and their Red River Athletic Conference record to 16-6, which finishes them second in conference. This is the second such streak for the Lady Rams, who are undefeated since a Feb. 3 loss to Jarvis. Wesleyan went on another 8- 0 run previously in the season, during which they outscored five opponents by 25-plus points. The Lady Rams' lopsided record makes for the first time the team has fin- ished with 20 or more wins since the 2000-01 sea- son and the first time since 1990 that the team has finished second in the confer- ence.

The Rambler Entertainment March J, 2004 7 ONE INCUT ONLY: PLAYER* AND SINCEM UNITE! Whitney Fowler NEWS EDITOR The Wesleyan community is invited to a free vocal chamber concert 7:30 p.m. March 8 in Nicholas Martin Hall. According to Dale Morehouse, assistant professor of music and the concert's direc- tor/pianist, vocal chamber music1 gives singer soloists a chance to work with instrumental soloists. At Wesleyan, there aren't many opportu- nities to hear both instrumentalists and vocal- ists perform together, Morehouse explains, which will be a fulfilling experience in itself for listeners. Most of the music Morehouse chose for the show comes from the 19th century, a time when people created music in and for their homes. "Sometimes we forget," Morehouse explains, "that the people of that time were without radio and television. What they wanted to hear, they had to create." "They were much more active musicians. Their only other option was silence," he says. The styles of the pieces ...

Actors, designers, writers and technicians are at a point in their creative careers where they are able to hone their craft in many different environments. Classrooms, scene shops, workshops and rehearsals are all places where each artist is working towards a per- formance or the performance or some response from any audience. But feedback received after a show is not always what the actor, designer, writer or technician expects. Mom's obligatory encouragement and a stranger's oblivious approval are affirming but not necessarily critical or constructive. When an artist needs real critics, she performs for her peers. The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) gathers theatre students, professors and professionals to per- form original and published works, organize interactive w...

4 March 10, 2004 Campus Life The Rambler Business Professor Heller shares his love to teach Nancy Wheeler STAFF WRITER Dr. Steven Heller, Wesleyan assistant professor of business admin- istration, sits at his desk with a seri- ous expression as he addresses a visi- tor. At first glance, Dr. Heller may seem the consummate, serious profes- sor with his business-like demeanor, shock of white hair, brown woolen jacket and paisley tie. Talk with him a while, or take a business communica- tions class, however, and you may see something more. The soft-spoken teacher received his bachelor's degree from Florida State University, his master's in man- agement science from the University of Arizona and his doctorate at the University of Tennessee. A look at his extensive achieve- ments will, at times, reveal an ongo- ing theme of business-related human- itarianism.

This year's Greek Week was filled with a variety of competitions for each day of the week. All the organizations that competed proved their loyalty and life-long bonds for each other, competing everyday in seven strenuous activities, pushing through with sore legs from volleyball, or strained arms from Tug of War. The first Greek Week event, the Basketball Shootout, began March 1. Each organization had the opportunity to shoot as many hoops as possible, and the organization with the most points would win the event. Alpha Xi Delta and Lambda Kappa Kappa took first place in the event. On March 2, the Greeks competed in the old fashioned game of Tug of War.
