March 31, 2004 The University News Commentary Procrastination leads students to interesting internet searches We are a bad in- fluence. We are fully aware of this. Over the course of the year, we have given advice about studying for finals, yes, but we have also dedicated a lot of time to helping you waste yours. But here is something we like about UD: some things never change. So in the spirit of procrastination, we will introduce you (or rein- troduce, since many of you may have tried this before.. .with less hysterical results) to our new fa- vorite activity. On a recent Tuesday night, we began to Google our high school classmates. This was primarily because, between the two of us, we had four papers due. High school classmates soon gave way to grade school classmates as the quest got more and more excit- ing. We will provide you with a sampling of the results. It all began with Chris, a former high school classmate of Anna Kate's and freshman year nemesis. He wore his "partici- ...

12 March 31, 3004 The University News Sports A weekend whopping Crusaders walk all over Austin Collge in double header by Robert Hartle Sports Editor The UD women's Softball team won both its games against Austin College this past weekend. In the first game of a double-header, UD beat Austin College 9-1, allowing only one hit and committing only one UD's Abby Roberts sprints for first after a bunt in Saturday's double header. Eric Martinez/ University News error. Amanda Acevedo pitched all five innings, striking out five in the win. Center-fielder Jamie Schwark had the best day at the plate, going two for two and driving in two runs. The Crusaders put the game away in the fifth inning. First batter up, Acevedo was hit by a pitch and then moved to second on a wild pitch. Shortstop Abby Roberts was walked and then advanced to second after UD's second- baseman Marcey Hoelting reached on an error by the pitcher, who then made a terrible throw. Both Roberts and Acevedo scored and advance...

April 1, 2004 The University Schmooze News UD to outsource professors from India next school year by Manjula Nahasapeemapetilon International Beat After much brainstorming, the UD Board of Trustees has found a way to save millions of dollars each year by outsourcing cost- efficient professors from India. "By eliminating all non-ten- ured professors and using vari- ous 'techniques" to run off ten- ured professors we don't really need, the university will save millions that can be used to im- prove student facilities, namely athletic ones," said a Board member who wished to remain anonymous. "The quality of teaching will not decrease. These Indian pro- fessors are quite brilliant. Sure, there will be less student-teacher interaction, but think of the money we will save." Next year students will walk into either Gorman or Lynch and watch their new budget-friendly professor projected onto a large screen. The lecture will be broadcast live in order for stu- dents to be able to ask questi...

UNTVERSI PallaS. EWS volume XXXIII, Number 21 MHHBl of Dallas, Irving, Texas April 7. mm acuity meets second presidential candidate by Lincy George Assistant News Editor Faculty met last week with a finalist in the presidential search. Dr. Lex McMillan III, vice presi- dent of college relations at Gettysburg, said he has always enjoyed working at the univer- sity level. "My passion for the work I do is rooted in a passion for the work that you (the faculty) do. I set myself in life to be part of a learning community," he said. Dr. Charles Eaker, chemistry professor, introduced McMillan and said he raised $100 million for the Gettysburg Committee on the Future. McMillan gave a short auto- biographical speech and then answered faculty questions. McMillan said he wanted to be a professor, but circumstances led him into the administrative side of university life. As a doc- toral student, he worked as edi- tor of a public interest magazine and later a college director of public relations...

April 7, 2004 The University News News Fighting the iring: Recovering economy means more jobs for college graduates by John Carse Contributing Writer "You're fired!" Donald Trump stares down a table of apprentices, all vying for a job in his company. He points his finger at one unfortunate individual and utters those fateful words. Another is lost, another who did not make the cut, another who joins the ranks of the unemployed. At a time when competition for jobs is fierce, any student who spent last summer searching for a job, only to be repeatedly turned away, can easily relate. Tina Strazdas, a 2003 UD graduate, began looking for a job two weeks after graduation but found it was not as easy as she had anticipated. "You don't think you'll have to pay rent for three months before you find a job," Strazdas said. Strazdas' job-hunting lasted until late July, when she finally got a job working at a credit union. Though this was one of the first places where she applied, she sent her r...

4 April 7, 2004 The University News News More campus areas to be declared smoke-free by Erin Cooley Contributing Writer The Clean Air Committee has succeeded in securing approval for a proposal that designates certain areas of campus smoke- free. The committee will post signs prohibiting smoking around campus, mostly at certain entrances to academic buildings. The Clean Air Committee, chaired by Jennifer Linton, human resources generalist, was formed to come up with a solution that would meet the need of all constituencies. Dr. Marcy Brown-Marsden, a biology professor at UD and member of the committee, agreed that the purpose was "to try to come up with some solutions for avoiding conflict." The committee was composed of faculty, staff, and students, both smokers and non-smokers alike, Linton said. The reason the decision was made by a varied group rather than one person was that "a committee is more accepted, rather than having [rules] coming straight from the top," she said. Brown...

Dr. John Alvis, English pro- fessor, asked McMillan whether more money would solve the school's problems and whether UD needs a larger endowment. McMillan said more money or a larger endowment would not solve all UD's problems. As president, however, he would raise funds for UD by commu- nicating to others the "story of this place,*' "At least in my experience, money is not the solution to ev- erything. It depends on how you structure the finances.

6 April 7, 2004 The University News Sports Rookies do not disappoint James and Anthony best rookie class since Jordan, Olajuwon The 2003-2004 NBA season was the one with most anticipated drafts in 20 years. Not since Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon in 1984 has there been a draft as highly anticipated as that which brought Carmello Anthony and LeBron James to frontstage. In 1984, Jordan and Olajuwan proved to be the best rookie pair in history, both having dominating seasons, not only against rookies, but against the entire league. In his rookie year, Olajuwon had more than 20 points and almost 12 rebounds per-game. Jordan was third in the league in scoring, with 28.2 points per- game. Both Olajuwon and Jordan were acknowledged as two of the 50 greatest players in NBA history. In his first year out of high- school, James is averaging almost 20 points per game. Both James and Anthony are taking teams that were abysmal last season and pushing them toward playoff spots. Rather than h...

April 7, 2004 The University News Sports Where s the Slaughter Rule?: Lady Crusaders outscore Fisk 100-17 over four game series by Robert Hartle Sports Editor The UD Lady Crusaders had the best weekend of their season in Nashville, Tenn., outscoring their opponents 100-17 over a four-game span. Though the team did not treat it like one, the trip was all but a vacation. The team consensus is that their opponents this weekend, Fisk University, were possibly the worst softball team to ever grace the field. The first game of the weekend saw the Crusaders win by a score of 27-0. That first game gave the team a pretty good idea of what the next three games would have in store. The second game was a more modest victory for the team: 25- 7. This game included the first hit and stolen base of the year for outfielder Kim Barvick. Barvick, a senior out of Kansas City, Mo., had never played organized softball until this season, but was given the chance when the Crusaders realized they were in n...

BUCKLEY Contributing Writer For most graduating seniors, faced with the unwelcome prospects of comprehensive exams and theses, the idea of a student who willingly chooses to do a thesis project when he or she did not have to might seem a bit unusual. Unusual, but not unheard of. Senior chemistry major Melissa Jasbring is one such student. Jasbring has already taken her chemistry comps and is now enrolled in Senior Novel, the thesis project for UD English majors. "I needed another 3000 level class," Jasbring said. "And a lot of things didn't fit into my schedule because every other class I have is completely rigid. Several of my friends were taking [Senior Novel], and it sounded like fun. Besides, I like English." Jasbring finds the Senior Novel class a refre...

The University News April 7, 2004 URES es to challenge s, thesis project Wuthering Heights Senior Melissa Jasbring chose Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights for her Senior Novel project. This Romantic novel is set in 19th cen- tury England and focuses on the interac- tions of two neighboring families. The Earnshaws adopt a young orphan, Heathcliffe, who falls in love with their daughter, Catherine. When Catherine grows up, she decides to marry her neigh- bor, Edgar Linton, instead of Heathcliffe. Furious, Heathcliffe leaves Wuthering Heights for many years. When he reutrns, he seeks revenge on both the Earnshaws and the Lintons. Only pain results, culmi- nating in the deaths of Catherine, Edgar, and Heathcliffe. Jasbring explained why she chose this tragic tale, "I read it in high school, and I liked it. But we did it on a high school level so we read it only on the surface. I liked the Brontes' work. I had read sev- eral of their books, and I wanted to study it on a deeper level." 25 ...

10 April 7, 2004 The University News Arts & Entertainment Mourning Becomes Electra cast delivers strong performances by Maryclaire Becan A&E Editor Last weekend, the UD Drama Department presented Mourning Becomes Electra, by Eugene O'Neill, as its mainstage production, seamlessly directed by Mary Maiella, Monica Weigel, and Erik Singh. The play is a trilogy, just like the play it is adapted from the ancient Greek Oresteia. Bach part was directed by a different senior drama major. Maiella took the first act, The Homecoming, Weigel directed The Hunted, and Singh finished the production with The Haunted. Those students who can recall reading the Oresteia in their sophomore year will recognize the story well enough. A family patriarch returns home from the war, his adulterous wife kills him, his children avenge his death and then suffer the guilt and horrors of doing so. The names in this modern adaptation were changed and the play was set in New England just following the Civil...

April 7, 2004 The University News 11 Arts & Entertainment Latiolais, Winstead, Wofford to present senior studios by Maryclaire Becan A&E Editor While most students are en- joying a break after midterms and relaxing in the quiet before the storm of finals, students in- volved in the three upcoming Senior Drama Studios have been rather busy. The first set of stu- dios took place last fall, two more were presented earlier this semester, and the final three, di- rected by Robin Latiolais, Becky Winstead, and Bryan Wofford, will play at the end of April. Latiolais' project is Antigone, a translation by Lewis Galantiere of an adaptation by Jean Anouilh of the original play, written by Sophocles. The performance will take on a shadowed tone, set in a church that has just been bombed and populated by char- acters meant to look like walk- ing ghosts. "I wanted this production to appear more like a confounded painting with the propaganda subtle and the understanding open to interpreta...
