4 September 8, 2004 The University News News ^Faculties renovates Gregory, irocwBPFinHHflw Lincy George News Editor Walking through Gregory Hall today one may notice_ nothing unusual. Gregory has the appearance of a typical residence hall. But the Gregory Hall that sophomore Josh Baer and others lived in last year was very different. Putting his study of Dante_ to: good use, Baer described the former Gregory Hall as a Stygian pit. "There was trash in the halls. The plumbing did not work. There was a definite odor. Imagine an old sneaker left in the sun for three days," he said. Sophomore Robert Hamilton corroborated Baer's story. Though he did not live in Gregory Hall himself last year, he visited his friends there often enough to know the true state of things. "The paint job was terrible. There was graffiti on everything (graffiti included lyrics of students' favorite songs). There were very terrible',uncarpeted floors," Hamilton said. Hamilton, now Baer's next door neighbor, did n...

6 September 8, 2004 The University News Commentary Welcome to college life: Orientation ends, learning begins Congratulations freshmen! You just survived orientation and the first week of college! After moving in, you were forced to par- my long, lonely life. I can die happy now" Bobby stepped out of the elevator towards her. "Wow!" he said. "My orientation ticipate in all kinds of mindless time-wasting activities designed to help you meet people. Then you went to the UD bookstore and waited in line for hours and hours to purchase all your course books, costing several thousand dollars. If you are planning to major in math or science, you just spent the equivalent of Bill Gate's net worth on a single used textbook. I can assume all of this because I am a wise senior who has been through it all before. I hope your expe- riences were similar to mine because I am attempting to use my repressed memories of orientation and my psychic powers to write this article. The only positive things...

September 8, 2004 The University News Features Learning on the Job: ExxonMobil summer interns share experiences by Monica Bond Features Editor A common obstacle for a col- lege graduate looking for first- time employment is the question of job-related experience. Most employers seem to seek some- one with on-the-job skills, but seldom appear willing to give a new employee the opportunity to acquire such experi- ence. This summer, four UD students found one answer to this ap- parently dead-end situ- ation: internships with non-profit organiza- tions through the Exx- onMobil Community Summer Jobs Program. "We're real proud of the fact that four out of 75 were UD students. We think that's a wonderful representation," Har- riet Cousins, internship coordi- nator and associate director of undergraduate business programs, said. Cousins believes UD students are ideal candidates for the Exx- onMobil internships. "Our students are really well suited for the intern- ships. Because of their lib...

8 September 8, 2004 The University News Arts & Entertainment Review Picasso sets standard for drama during orientation by Maryclaire Becan A&E Editor For incoming students with any interest in drama, this year's orientation play, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, was a delightful in- troduction to the quality of work University of Dallas students are accustomed to seeing on the Mar- garet Jonsson Theater stage. The play was directed by Luke Mutschler, senior drama major; Mutschler, as well as his cast, arrived in mid-August to begin rehearsals. Picasso at the Lapin Agile is a comedy by Steve Martin, the famous comedian well-known for his movies as well as for his years on Saturday Night Live. The play centers around a small bar in France, the Lapin Agile, run by Freddy (Mutschler) and his feisty girlfriend, played by Aline Elasmar. A young Albert Einstein (Keegan McCabe-Hense) and a young Pablo Picasso (Justin Lemieux) meet in the Lapin Ag- ile by chance and discover that, though ...

September 8, 2004 The University News 9 Arts & Entertainment Movie Reviews rom breathtaking Hero to sad Suspect Zero by FS Movie Reviewer Zhang Yimou's Hero (wide release) is easily one of the most visually astonishing pictures ever made, a stylized epic about the creation of China under the Qin dynasty that's also something akin to the apotheosis of the martial arts film. Told in a series of Rashomon- style flashbacks, Hero concerns three master assassins pledged to kill the king who is forcibly uniting the disparate realms that eventually became China. The combat sequences are remarkable even by the standard of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, with a battle amid swirling fall foliage and another literally atop a lake so beautiful as to take one's breath away. The use of different colors to set off each segment of the film is also a ravishing touch. The stateliness and emotional detachment of the picture may deter some viewers (as also may the fact that it's subtitled), but Hero...

10 September 8, 2004 The University News Sports David Copperfield connects with America s pass time Have you ever gone through a summer and never once missed looking in the paper for your team's box score? Did you ever find yourself per- forming the strange love-duty of collecting "baseball cards" of every single player on that team? Have you ever lobbed fly balls into the air and caught them with your glove, but in your mind caught them with the glove of an all-star center-fielder? In short, have you ever been so completely absorbed in the life of the team, in the life of the season, that that season informed your season; the Boys of Summer informed your summer so that when fall came and your team fell, the fall was a kind of death. I confess to all these things. I also confess the happy joy of experiencing the resurrection that is known as the 1991 World Series when the Minnesota Twins defeated the Atlanta Braves in seven games. I am sure there are many experiences akin to this Am...

September 8, 2004 The University News 11 Sports ough season opener challenges volleyball team by Taryn Hames Contributing Writer The volleyball team had a tough opening weekend with five matches in four days on its home court. The season began Wednesday Sept. 1, with a well-fought match against Austin College. Austin College, which went on to win the University of Dallas Volleyball Festival two days later, was a solid team that challenged UD's young squad in three sets: 21-30,25-30, 15-30. UD's team consists of only three returning players. Juniors Kathleen Brown, a returning two- year varsity letterman, and Ashli Raindl, the return setter from last season, are this year's captains. They led the team, along with sophomore Taryn Hames, to their first win at the end of the tourna- ment this past weekend. The Crusaders defeated Ra- mapo College of New Jersey in three games, 30-18,30-18, 30-26, Saturday night after three disap- pointing losses. Crusaders lost to these three teams: Conco...

Ill tee main factors contribute to overall student health, Dekat said. "Sleep, exercise, and a good diet can take you a long way from becoming very frazzled and needing help at the end of the semester," she said. Getting enough sleep is vital to overall health and the ability to operate from day to day. "The basic thing is that students need to get enough sleep, which at this age is still an average of eight hours a night. Some people even need 10," Dekat said. Short-term sleep-deprivation...

September 15, 2004 The University News 5 News Feathering the nest Students study vireo habitat by Nancy George Contributing Writer A research team from UD spent the summer at the Cedar Ridge Preserve in Duncanville studying how to bring the black- capped vireo back to its former habitat at the preserve. Heather McWilliams, a team member, explained the "black- capped vireo is the 14th most endangered North American bird." This bird was last seen at the preserve in 1993. Team members included Dr. Marcy Brown Marsden, associate biology professor; senior biology major John Rueda; sophomore biology major McWilliams; and *04 alum Annie Collins. The team concentrated on studying the trees, the habitats of these vireos, since the birds are supposed to migrate to the preserve during the spring. Studying the trees included re- cording the different species of trees, the circumference of the trees, and the trees' distance from a spe- cific point of which latitude and longitude was known of.

6 September 15, 2004 The University News News by Lincy George News Editor Far stretches of desert land. Cattle roaming on the savannah. Corn, plantains grow on the cultivated land. Rural Sudan is vastly different from urban America. Sudan was the home of Gabriel Akol, UD custodian, before he had to flee soldier gunfire and airplane bombs. The afternoon when the Northern Sudanese attacked his village, Akol became one of thousands of lost Sudanese boys and girls., children who were separated from their families and parents as a result of the war. Akol lives in America today For the past eight months, he has worked as a custodian at UD while attending classes at Everest College in Dallas. The war changed the course of Akol's life. Separated at the young age of 9, Akol feels he never had a chance to learn to become a member of his family's community. "I don't know my culture as I am supposed to. I left in my early age. What I was supposed to learn in my childhood, I did not learn. Even ...

When the opening for a custodian came up, Ahlberg assisted Akol with his resume and interview preparation. 1 think the smile won the interview," Ahlberg said. Ahlberg said she is impressed with Akol's success. "1 don't know how much of it is his own background. I think he has been able to utilize a lot of the training he received," she said. Akol also participates actively in the outreach program of St. Patrick's Church, the church he attends as often as he can. Sabine said, "He helps with the present youth group [for refugees]. He helps organize games, basketball. He has been great." Akol's character is admirable, Sabine said. "He is one of the most incredible human beings I have ever met because of the strength of his Catholic faith, his kindness. He is just a gentle man. I have known him since he has come. He reaches out to people. "People [such...

"The main thing is I would love for people to take the op- portunity to use the internships to explore various career options, more fully to investigate some- thing they really think they might be interested in, to get experience on their resume, to begin net- working," Cousins said, "Those are all really wonderful reasons to do an internship." For students who are unde- cided about a career choice, an internship is a valuable aid in determining what career they might want to pursue. Through an internship, students gain first- hand knowledge of daily life in their prospective careers. "It's a wonderful way to just put you...

ML September 15, 2004 The University News Commentary Ballard begs readers comments, decries stupidity of pop culture Before I discuss pop culture, I must take care of some business. I know my fellow UD class- mates have very strong opinions on a multitude of issues and can voice them in a 600-900 word commentary or at least as a letter under 350 words. As commentary editor, it is my job to find commentary, edit it, and lay it out for the paper. Perhaps I should make some extremely controversial statements that will arouse the wrath of my fellow classmates. The following statements (which I probably don't agree with) are intended to induce the reader to write to The University News: 1. In order to further advance the study of the Western tradition, the University of Dallas should of- fer courses related to the study of pop culture, Ebonics, and gender studies. 2. John Kerry is a strong leader who will lead America in an intel- ligent, decisive way with the help of our wonderful ally,...

September 15, 2004 The University News 11 Commentary Collins proposes new theory of female, male fishbowl mind by Maggie Collins Contributing Writer The other day I was standing in the seemingly endless line at the UD bookstore* discuss- ing the gender barrier in communication with a few friends. Someone off- handedly mentioned a certain "female mind fish bowl theory," and I was perplexed as to what exactly this meant. My curiosity aroused, I inquired for further details. This "fish bowl theory" is based on the belief that the female mind is like a fish tank, and the various fish are her thoughts. There can be (and usually are) hundreds of fish swimm ing around in this fish tank. When women are convers- ing with one another, the assorted fish ideas can jump from one woman's fish tank to another. The problem with the gender gap is, according to this idea, that men do not have fish tank minds. Instead of the fish jumping freely into another safe fish bowl, they land smack on the male ...
