' ? :Mfci 4 October 5, 2005 Campus The Rambler The Students receive scholarships for their constitutional knowledge Changes in GST class structure provide 'user-friendly' approach Shalonda Thompson STAFF WRITER We're all familiar with the Constitution, right? The financial aid office held the Constitution Day Scholarship Contest Sept. 19-23 offering five $250 scholarships.

8 October 5, 2005 Entertainment The Rambler! Alumna works to aid hurricane victims Marla Jo Kelly STAFF WRITER Hurricane Katrina devastated thousands. North Texas has served not only as a place of refuge for these victims, but as their new home. One Wesleyan theater graduate finds herself in the middle of the massive effort to help. Recent Wesleyan alumna Emily Cherry works for the North Texas Food Bank, a nonprofit organization that has dis- tributed 293 million pounds of food since 1982. Cherry works as the communications coordinator at the food bank, a job she began while still at Wesleyan. She man- ages the Web site, handles public relations and organizes events. She also coordinates volunteer activities, a hefty job since the food bank has more than 50,000 volunteer hours every year. After the hurricane hit, the NTFB went into action, and so did Cherry. "We are providing food to local agencies including the Red Cross and Salvation Army," said Cherry. "We have also provided food...

Jan Fersing, the founder/co-owner of Therofoam Inc. in Fort Worth, gave $100,000 to Texas Wesleyan in honor of her parents. This money will be used to form a scholarship that will be awarded each year to a student related to an ehiployee of Thermofoam. According to Cumbie, if no such student exists, the scholarship will then be awarded to a student whose parents are immigrants. Another gift is from Irwin and Deloris Whitney, who gave $100,000 in stock to Texas Wesleyan through the David L. Tandy Foundation, their family foundation.

"What I like about Dr. Deaton is he doesn't lower his standards, but is willing to do what is necessary to help students reach those stan- dards," said Amy Smith, sen- ior education major. c Deaton currently teaches physics and geology, as well as the non-major course Meteorology, Oceanography and Space Science (MOSS). The greatest challenge in teaching is "keeping me informed with changes in fields," he said. So in other words, teachers still have homework as students do. "I love teaching... because the interaction with students keeps you on your feet, and the students chal- lenge you," Deaton said.

8 October 12,2005 Entertainment The Rambler w: Shawn R. Poling hen Serenity finally went into production, most people thought the idea was either genius or ridicu- lous. The characters and the world of Serenity had already been introduced to the public in the form of Firefly, a failed TV series that aired on WB (Channel 33). The series was created and writ- ten by Joss Whedon, creator of the cult-classic, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. — Firefly was his unique vision of a sci- ence fiction story set in space. The program was a sort of "western space" series, whose characters were a group of thieves that traveled on their own in the captain's space- ship Serenity. The captain also took along guests for pay, including a companion (a futuristic geisha), a shepherd and a mysterious pair of siblings (a doctor and his young, seemingly schizophrenic sister). The show was much anticipated but ultimately only lasted less than three months. The network didn't treat the show well, because they want...

Northwood applied heavy pressure on offense in the early stages of the game, but the Rams' defense was resilient not letting them through. On offense the Rams settled into the game creating opportunities for themselves with senior Jose Melendez registering the best of them. A pinpoint ball through the Knights' defense saw Melendez get a glimpse at the goal and take a shot. Unfortunately for the Rams, the Knights' goalkeeper prevented the score with a leg block. After that, both offenses slowed down. With opportunities on goal few and far between, the two teams would enter the half locked in a stalemate. The second half proved to be a different story and a disappointing one f...
