4 — September 25, 2007 News The University News Dominican novices discuss life at the priory John Corrales CONTRIBUTING WRITER Fx. Philip Powell and six Dominican novices spoke and ate with students at last Tuesday's Dinner and Discourse in order to give students insight into the Dominican spiritual life and to give students an opportunity to converse with the novices. The novices spoke about the discernment processes they each are experiencing and how the challenges they encounter influence not only their spiritual, but emotional and social lives. "I'm in an environment where things have changed radically," Brother Eduardo Belize said. "This growth process is taking me in a new direction, but that direction is also connected to my past." Many of the novices recognized the differences between their secular lives and their lives as novices. "Even when you work with a priest as an altar server or sacristan, you still see things from a limited perspective," Brother David Tran said. "We...

While the addition of electronic and computerized devices has relieved librarians of some of the past burdens they have had to shoulder, it has also complicated their tasks. It has unleashed an avalanche of information, texts, images, and recorded sounds that require mastery of a number of different interfaces and expertise in the programming and use of databases in order to locate and access them. The library has become a kind of clearing house through which every form of information passes and becomes available to users. The popularity and seeming ease of use associated with search engines such as Google might suggest that...

ersity News September 25, 2007 — 9 Letter to the freshmen On behalf of the senior class, we would like to extend a warm welcome to the largest freshman class ever to attend the University of Dallas. Your experience here will be satisfying, groundbreaking, and unforgettable. Your career at UD will be tremendously rewarding. We can assure you of that fact, despite any feelings you might experience during freshman year. Almost everyone who attends UD does, at some point, doubt that this is the school for them. It is a normal reaction with which most of the upperclassman can sympathize. Sometimes, this doubt sets in when you begin your first English class by reading a book that is thousands of years old. Other times it is when you discover that you are putting in far more work than your friends at Ivy Leagues are doing. What we can promise you is that this is one of the best educations in the country. University of Dallas students are recognized across the country for their intelligence...

eatu re 10 —September 25, 2007 The University News Ihe Senior A Tradition that Sarah Crotty MANAGING EDITOR Rather than worrying about theses, comprehensive exams and insurmountable amounts of reading, the senior class has begun to ponder what gift they are going to give to the university as a lasting memory of their class. This tradition has been present at UD since it's inception, according to Sybil Novinski, University Historian. "As far as I can tell from reading yearbooks and newspapers, the senior gift tradition has been here from the beginning/' said Novinski. "It had slightly different names and traditions but a gift from the graduating class, an expression of gratitude to its faculty and institution, has always been there." Sarah Papania, Senior Class Chair, will spearhead the gift selection process, delegating some tasks to committee chairs, while coordinating the overall effort. "I know that our class has a lot of enthusiasm about UD, and that everyone will want to work t...

The University News September 25, 2007 — 11 Class Gift: Keeps on Giving The Class of 2006 raised funds that were combined to purchase the beautiful mosaics currently hanging with other donations in the Cap Bar. here to help/' Senior class gifts vary from year to year as a result of the amount of funds raised by the class. The ultimate goal, however, is complete class participation according to Dr. Kathleen Burk, Associate Academic Dean of Constantin College. "Seniors are encouraged to shoot for a high percentage of participation rather than a large sum of money," said Burk. "For example, it's more important that every class member donate five dollars than having three or four members donate large amounts." Funds can be raised in numerous ways, but the most effective way, as demonstrated by the Class of 2007, is participating in the UD Phonathon. This event allows students to raise money for campus groups by volunteering to help call alumni, parents and supporters of the University. ...

Arts & Entertainment 12 —September 25, 2007 The University News ate Nights at the DMA draw large crowds Mary Tetzlaff ASSISTANT MANAGING EDITOR The Dallas Museum of Art entices patrons to their Late Night program with the catchy phrase "The art doesn't go home. Why should you?" It's too bad that the art did indeed go home. The most recent Late Night at the DMA, Friday the 21st, boasted an "Ashes of Vesuvius" exhibition—complete with frescos and mosaics from ancient Pompeii. The exhibition would have been complete had the frescoes actually been present. Unfortunately for the late night crowd, the most famous frescos were not to be found. The pieces in fact went home as the Napoli National Museum reopened and wanted their works back. All that remained was modern models and architectural sketches of Pompeii with a few vaguely interesting ancient examples. Despite there being few truly Pompeian pieces, the promise of them was a nice excuse to explore the DMA, inspecting their fair c...

The University News September 25, 2007 — 13 Old Mill, new colors leen Casey Colleen Sweeney ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT EDITORS As many of upperclassmen have noticed, "Old Mill," officially, "Tower Village/' is getting a makeover—an extreme makeover. Paint does wonders, especially since the apartments haven't had a touchup in 10-12 years. Residents have noticed the changes, and have been asked to remove furniture from their porches and entryways because the painters are coming—when you least expect it. You may come home on a Thursday night after TGIT and find the outside of your apartment has been painted "flower pot" red, "dry thyme" green, or "dapper tan" brown. A Tower Village representative informed the University News of their strategy to improve their present image and convert it into a "village look." With the assistance of the residents and the cooperation of the weather, the task will be completed within 3-4 weeks. Patrick Daly, the Director of Business Services at UD, was the...

He may just be developing a billion dollar business. It happened at Harvard. In 2004, Mark Zuckerberg, then just a collegian, invented the social network that would hypnotize millions of users worldwide. Following the idea of Harvard's Face Book, a guide with the names and pictures of students intended to help freshmen get acquainted with their classmates, Zuckerberg hit a goldmine of untapped potential. Facebook follows the concept of MySpace, where a user gets a webpage to put personal info, pictures, and interests. With both, users can write on each other's pages, send private messages, and upload pictures. The split, and the reason each has a niche, is the level of freedom given to users.

I know you don't want to hear what I'm about to tell you. We all know that smoking is bad for us. But just as I would remind someone standing on the tracks that a train is coming, I feel compelled to remind you of the more than unpleasant effects of smoking cigarettes. You probably have a plan, something along the lines of: smoke now, quit later. Obviously, you'll quit when you have to, when you get a good job, get married, have kids, join the order, whatever it is. You're consoled by the fact that your lungs are young and resilient and will heal if you quit soon enough. Well, you probably will quit and your lungs are resilient, but there are still two problems: the longer yo...

Student Government decided to evenly disperse the money by choosing two international charities, as well as two local charities. One charity which will benefit from Charity Week is Casa de Hogar, an orphanage in Morelia, Mexico. The orphanage has an eighty year history meeting the needs of the children who live there. This particular charity was chosen in response to a strong recommendation from a member of the UD community who volunteered there during the past summer. Food for the Poor, Inc., is a charity which works particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean islands. The charity has supplied the equivalent of over 39,500 semi-trailer loads of goods to areas in need of relief. I...

It was later found and safely returned to its proper residence around 10 am Friday morning. Facilities handled the transportation of the mascot, after one of their workers noticed it standing on the grass in front of O'Connell Hall, according to Facilities worker Steve Serna.

Sports The University News October 2, 2007 — 5 Randy's Resurgence The lote-career explosion of the N L s most inscrutable player TC Fleming SPORTS EDITOR The renaissance taking hold of Randy Moss fascinates me more than any other story in sports right now. Moss has always been an enigmatic idol. He represents what most fans don't want to see in sports: the blessed athlete who lazily squanders his considerable gifts. And yet, I love Moss. It is not, however, in spite of these qualities that I love Moss—it is because of them. Despite my disdain for the athlete too lazy to realize his full potential, I myself admit my own tendencies towards sloth. So when someone achieves great success with minimal effort, it represents for me a hope for the success of my own formula. If Moss can ascend to the highest levels of his craft by using the abilities he was born with, certainly I can get what I want without giving my all. The realities of the world around me pull this hope back down and show ...

This tradition is guaranteed to make Charity Week unforgettable. J Sarah Crotty MANAGING EDITOR .ock 'em up! For years, UD students have been putting their professors behind bars to raise money for charity. Some professors, however, have a reputation of creating quite a scene. ' During Charity Week, students have the opportunity to send their professors to jail for the duration of a class period. In order to "arrest" their professors, students must bring money to class and if enough funds are raised, students can take their professor to the jail. Students should be weary, however, of the wiry professors with a history of escaping. One such teacher is Father Maguire, O. Cist., whose awe-inspiring getaways helped to create this Charity Week Tradition. Armed with quick thinking, fast feet and years of experience, Maguire alw...
