"Many of the smartest and most successful people in the world give credit for their suc- cess to their mothers," he said. Singley said he agrees with Aristotle's declaration that the "mark of an educated mind is its ability to entertain a new thought without feeling as though it is necessary to accept It*® Singley said it is imperative to read and comprehend well for a full life. In short, Singley said, an edu- cated person is one who "has de- veloped the skill to think ratio- nally, to live with purpose, and [who] has honed the skill of deal- ing with an ever-changing envi- ronment." Singley emphasized the qual- ity of leadership in teaching. "Leadership is about stepping up and saying, 'I will be respon- sible. I will be accountable for myself and for those around me,'" he said.

Movie Reviewer The unlikely victory of the U.S. Olympic hockey team in the 1980 winter games is the subject of Miracle (wide release), a fairly typical root-for-the- underdog sports movie that also fits snugly with today's super- patriotic mood. The plot trajectory is determined by history, of course, but also by the conventions of the genre. This is basically Rocky on the ice or Secibiscuit with pucks; the real event might have seemed miraculous, but the movie is conventional. Still, it...

6 February 11, 2004 The University News Feat Couples have found fun and entertainment in the Irving area without breaking the bank. — 7.'* i 1 UD couple, juniors Jacob Brown and Bess Deacon, meet in the Cap Bar between classes. Because it is usually busy and has rea- sonable prices, the Cap Bar is a fun and inexpen- sive place for a date. Eric Martinez/ University News by Charla Bowman Contributing Writer College students have a unique lifestyle. Roommates, late nights, care packages, and laundry piles help set apart the college years from years past and years to come. An important aspect of college life is dat- ing. Having money, being creative, and even finding a date make up the college dating package. Stu- dents are al- ways on the lookout for new and dif- ferent date ideas that do not leave their bank ac- counts empty, and the approach of Valentine's Day brings this quest to many couples minds. 1AMC theater at Irving Mall has $4 Tues- days. All movies are $4 all day Tuesday and...

The University News February 11, 2004 URES "We look for fun and interesting dates that are also cheap," freshman Mike Hasson said. Hasson and his girlfriend, like many college couples, look for entertainment within their bud- get. Creativity when it comes to dating is very impor- t a n t , Hasson said. "I usu- ally pay when we go out, not be- cause I'm chauvinist, but because its something nice for her," he said. Freshman Kristin McFarland, whose boyfriend is a sophomore at UNT in Denton, said, "I really can't afford to do any- thing expensive." For some students, money does not affect where they go but how long they stay out on dates. College students on low budgets rarely pass up student discounts or amp other special offers from entertain- ment facilities. "We try to find movie theaters with student discounts," McFarland said. Lucidly, there are several area movie theaters offering student dis- counts, McFarland said. The AMC theater at Irving Mall offers $4 Tuesdays. As the name...

February 11, 2004 The University News Commentary unior girls advise UD guys on subtle art of holding hands We were never cheerleaders. This fact may not be painfully obvious, so we are clearing up this potential contusion, lest you mistakenly assume we were cool in high school. However, though there is no rah-rah in our past, we find it is our mission to encourage rather than discourage. Last week's column was slightly pre- mature in anticipating the up- coming weekend, and it, sadly, may have left a large portion of the UD population unsatisfied. This is for those of you who found yourselves asking, "But Anna and Maryclaire, what if there is someone I really, really like and I DO want to do some- thing about it?"(Since all such important questions are always posed to your friendly local hu- mor columnists.) We have a col- umn for all occasions, folks. Here's to those of you who have found yourselves humming I Just Wanna Hold Your Hand. (It should be noted that this article appeared...

lQ_ February 11, 2004 The University News Commentary SG responds to student concerns Actions taken to recycle, establish smoke free exits by Kim Barvic Contributing Writer At the beginning of a new semester, I think it is appropriate to enlighten the UD community of what exactly the Student Government secretary does. As one might guess, I take copious notes of every detail of SG meetings, a job not for the easily bored! From who led the Pledge of Allegiance (one of the opening steps in calling a meeting to order) to who motioned to adjourn, I duly note it. Then, I spend my Monday evenings locked in the SG Office, trying to decipher my own handwriting and typing the minutes. Bright and early Tuesday morning, one can find me at Printing and Postal, attempting to complete the hardest part of my job: deciding what color paper to print the minutes for the week on. This truly is the most difficult part of the position: too much pink in the paper color and the male senators will not read t...

February 11, 2004 The University News 11 Sports Hoggies win one, lose one to Steven F. Austin by Michael O'Keefe Rugby Correspondent The Groundhogs resumed conference play Saturday against Steven F. Austin University The Hoggies playoff hopes were on the line as they tried to improve on their 2-2 record. A try in the last five minutes of the match lifted SFA over UD for a 22-18 win. The Hoggies were pressed back on their goal line in the first minutes of the game. A number of penalties allowed SFA to retain possession and eventually score on the weak side. The quick score shook the Hoggies up a little bit. On the next drive, UD pushed the ball down the field just outside the 20-meter line. A penalty on an SFA player gave the Hoggies their first opportunity to score. Nick Wignall converted on the 25- meter penalty kick. The drives went back and forth for the next 15 minutes until UD put itself in scoring position with a lineout 10 meters out of the tryzone. Kevin St. Cin secured the ...

MM Board holds retreat Faculty Senate, administration update Trustees by Rebecca Leland News Editor The eighth annual Board of Trustees daylong retreat, held two weeks ago, provided an opportunity for the Board, faculty members, and senior administrators to reflect on and discuss key issues of the university, interim president Robert Galecke said. Dr. Stan Kroder, associate dean of the graduate school of management and professor of telecommunications, was one of three faculty senate members invited to attend the retreat. He explained how the meeting proceeded and expressed his satisfaction with the result. "They didn't conduct business in the usual sense of having motions and approving nominations and things like that - it was strictly informational. There was a good spirit, I sensed. The Board members were engaged [and] they asked good questions," he said. The first portion of the meeting con...

February 18, 2004 The University News News What's in a Name? Carpenter gave UD150 acres, conceived idea or Local landmark by Zainab Mushir Contributing Writer How are the Mustangs at Williams Square in Las Colinas and Carpenter Hall at the University of Dallas connected? The origins of both lead to the work of Ben Carpenter, Carpenter aided two of UD's founding trustees, Edward Maher and Eugene Constantin, Jr., in finding land for the university around 1955. His neighbor, Johnson (first name unknown), was selling several hundred acres of land to a pipe company, Carpenter said. Around the same time, he had read an article on the Catholic Diocese's effort to establish a university. "My father said they ought to put the university on [the Johnson] property," he said. "My father called Maher and Constantin and said, 'I got a site for your university.' We then drove them to look at the property." Maher and Constantin were interested in buying the land, he said, but asked for an incentive...

fc February 18, 2004 The University News Sports Wallace and Portland end rocky relationship . ;-:1 I What Would Joe (Kline) Do? Robert Hartle The first half of the 2003-04 NBA season came to an end with the announcement of the year's biggest trade. Just after a 102-96 victory over the Mavericks last Monday, the Atlanta Hawks an- nounced the trade of power for- ward Shareef Abdur-Rahim, cen- ter Theo Ratliff, and guard Dan Dickau to the Portland Trailblaz- ers in exchange for power for- ward Rasheed Wallace and guard Wes Person. Portland's trading Wallace came as no surprise to anyone. Wallace, who has spent the past eight of his nine total seasons in the NBA with the Blazers, is re- garded as one of the game's pre- mier power forwards, earning NBA All-Star honors in both 2000 and 2001. Wallace's talent was never the issue for the Blazers in wanting to trade him, but rather his char- acter. Wallace has been the poster boy for aTrailblazer team whose talent has been overlooked in re- ...

And though this viewpoint may reflect a more pragmatic understanding of the purpose of comps, their intended value is ultimately not lost. "I will come away having synthesized information that I would never have synthesized on my own," she said. But for some students, the notion of comprehensive exams being a synthesis of the undergraduate experience seems far too idealistic.

10 February 18, 2004 The University News Arts & Entertainment Drama department announces casting for senior studios by Maryclaire Becan A&E Editor During this Spring semester, there will be more than a few opportunities for students to experience theater on the University of Dallas campus. Mourning Becomes Electra will appear in late March and early April as the drama department's main stage production for the semester, and a student-run production of Hamlet will appear in late April and early May.
