Diary of a single Southern girlj

Dear Diary,

Timid Tom finally spoke
to me today. I've seen him
looking at me a lot. I think he
might be interested, but he's
just too scared to do anything
about it. I thought he would
never speak to me. I remem-
ber it clearly. At exactly 12:43
a.m., in my American his-
tory class, I was staring at the
back of Tom's head (which is
full of luxurious brown locks).
Tom was stretching when he
dropped the pencil he was
holding in his right hand. The

pencil could have fallen to my
right, or it could have fallen
to my left, but fate stepped
in, and the pencil fell into my
lap. There was no choice but
to give it back to him, even
though I desperately wanted
to keep it with me forever.
When Tom turned around to
retrieve his pencil, I smiled,
handed it back to him and
introduced myself, "Hi, I'm
Compatible Cassie," I said. He
giggled nervously, as if I had
poked him in the stomach like
the Pillsbury Doughboy, and
his face turned five different
shades of red. He looked like
a sunburned tomato. He stut-
tered an awkward, "Thank

you," giggled again and thJ

Spirit Week focuses on Southern

Aaron Cheney

Srapf Warn.

SA Spirit Week has given
Southern students a chance
to show off their school spirit
with activities and themes for
each day.

"We are trying to get stu-
dents to think about the mean-
ing of being a student at South-
ern, and what sets Southern
apart," said Luther Whiting,
SA executive vice president.

Senator Kristina Benfield, a
senior graphic design major,
was in charge of the commit-
tee that planed Spirit Week.

"We're trying to have an ac-
tivity and an over all theme to
go with each day rather than
just super heroes, we're trying
to tie it more into Southern
student body activities," Ben-
field said.

This year's spirit week
started on Monday with
monochromatic day, encour-
aging students to wear outfits
of only one color. Tuesday

Vehical theft on rise at south end of greenway

Hannah Kuntz
rnpv Emma

Vehicle break-ins at the
Collegedale Greenway have
been on the rise.

Matthew Spears, a patrol-
man on the Collegedale police
department, said there have
been at least three break-ins

in the last two weeks.

"The four years I've been
here the number's [of vehicle
break-ins] have definitely in-
creased," Spears said.

He said most of the chefts
have occurred in the evening
at the Tucker Road entrance to
the Greenway, but there have
been thefts at the Imagination

Station as well. He advises stu-
dents to lock their valuables in
the trunks of their cars.

"Most of all the break-ins
have occurred out of vehicles
where purses have been in full
view," Spears said. "Our big-
gest hurdle right now is get-
ting people to lock things up
just to where it's not painfully

obvious that there's something
to steal."

Melissa Otis, a sopho-
more allied health major, had
her car's passenger window
smashed three weeks ago at
the Greenway and an empty
purse was taken.

Weekend to focus on purity

Alison Quiring
Staff Wiiih

Encounters Weekend will
feature Pastor Bernie Ander-
son this coming weekend as
he speaks about the craving
humans have for life, fulfill-
ment, joy and meaning.

Anderson said that he chose
the theme "Craving" because
many are spiritually hungry
and often our legitimate hun-
ger is sometimes filled with
something outside of God's
plan for our lives.

Friday night's message will
focus on why God has drawn
boundaries around sexuality.
Church service on Saturday
will focus on how our inner
desires often drive our out-
ward actions.

"My hope is that students
will come away thinking seri-
ously about holiness, sexual
integrity and just what it is that
drives them," Anderson said.
"I want them to crave Jesus
and a life devoted to Him."

Kevin Kibble, associate
chaplain, said that Anderson's
specialty is speaking to young
people about spiritual victory
in an environment where pu-
rity is not valued.

"Bernie's personal testi-
mony is a unique witness to
how young people can become
stronger spiritually in this age

of the media devaluing purity,"
Kibble said.

Anderson is the senior pas-
tor of the Wasatch Hills SDA
Church in Salt Lake City,
Utah and was invited to speak
for Encounters Weekend by
Southern's Chaplain, Brennon

Encounters Weekends were
started by the former South-
ern Chaplain Ken Rogers. He
wanted students to gain a spir-
itual blessing in mini weeks of
prayer spread throughout the
course of the school year so
there would be uplifting spiri-
tual programming between
the larger events like Student
Week of Prayer.

This is the third year since
Southern decided to start hold-
ing Encounters Weekends.

Donnie Keele, assistant
chaplain, said that Campus
Ministries puts on Encounters
Weekends because a full week
of prayer tends to disrupt the
academic schedule.

"Encounters Weekend gives
us a compromise," Keele said.
"It is a spiritual emphasis that
doesn't create problems with
the regular school schedule."

The next Encounters Week-
end will be held next semester
on March 12-15 with Manny
Cruz as guest speaker.

Patten Project focuses on serviq)

Roland Scaluet

Now as an official club on
campus, leaders of the Patten
Towers project are putting a
strong emphasis on service
this year, looking to make a
difference in residents' every-
day life with things like mani-
cures and trips to the zoo.

The project started in fall
of 2007 as an initiative of the
South East Youth Conference.
Patten Towers houses home-
less and disabled people in
downtown Chattanooga. The
project's main goal is to help
meet the residents' spiritual,
physical and social needs.

"Last year was our first
year," said Thomas Beihl,
president of the Patten Proj-
ect Club. "We learned from
what worked and what didn't

Besides holding a church
service every two weeks at Pat-
ten Towers, students are trying
to reach out to the residents in
many different ways.

New outreach efforts have
included a food drive where
nine carts full of groceries

Market customers, a zoo trip
and cruise on the Southern

out where Southern female

where residents could get free

cures and massages.

Upcoming events include
a stop-smoking program, a
Thanksgiving meal and a cel-
ebration of Patten Towers'
looth anniversary.

Biehl said Patten residents
participate more as their con-
fidence grows.

"Last year they were a little
more cautious because they
didn't really know us," he said.
"But this year we have more
residents attending."

However, the benefits of the

project are not only for M

Southern buys Spalding Cove ApartmeJ

This October, Southern
purchased the Spalding Cove
Apartments off of Tucker Road
on Spalding Drive for $2.6
million, and currently plans to
use them as family housing.

Enrollment is up 137 stu-
dents, and the need for more
housing for both singles and
families is growing.

"The pressure we keep feel-
ing is in housing," said Marty
Hamilton, associate vice presi-
dent for financial administra-
tion. 'The economy isn't do-
ing very well, and gas prices
are high, so students want to
be closer to campus."

The purchase of the Spald-
ing Cove Apartments erased

the need to start a new build-
ing project. One option was
to build more apartments
in Southern Village. The is-
sue was that they would have
needed to start construction
in October, and there was a lot
of pressure to get those done,
Hamilton said.

There are seven buildings
in the Spalding Cove area.
Each building contains four
apartments, each with two
bedrooms and one and a half

The Spalding Cove Apart-
ments will be transitioned into

Southern trying to prevent pedestrian injuries on crosswalk



Many people are unsure
whether pedestrians or driv-
ers have the right of way when
approaching a crosswalk on
University Drive, and univer-
sity officials are working to
prevent an accident.

"Cars have the right of way
and sometimes pedestrians
think they do, especially here
in Collegedale," said Jeff San-

1 tos, a senior accounting major.
"I am a city boy, so I am used

i to sharing the roads with many
According to the law, cars

have the right of way and pe-
destrians must wait for the
car to stop before crossing the
road. Once the pedestrian is in
the crosswalk, cars must yield
the right of way. However,
some students keep walking
without breaking stride across
the road, said Kevin Penrod,
director of Campus Safety.

Campus Safety is working
with Marketing & University
Relations to raise awareness
and promote safety. So far,
Campus Safety is hoping to
present at convocation and
residence hall worships, as
well as meet with the SA Sen-
ate to talk about these issues.

Southern doesn't own the
road and can't make changes,
so they're looking to awareness
and education to prevent inju-
ries. Hamilton County owns
University Drive and has ex-
clusive jurisdiction to change
the warning system, lights or
paint on the crosswalks, Pen-
rod said.

The traffic flow will only in-
crease as the Hulsey Wellness
Center is up and running and
construction of a roundabout
is underway, said Ruthie Gray,
director of Marketing & Uni-
versity Relations.

Pedestrians and drivers are
not the only ones who need to

be aware of each other. Penrod
said bikers, skateboarders and
others also need to follow traf-
fic laws when using the cross-

"Students and drivers don't
pay enough attention to each
other and tend to take stop
and yield signs as suggestions,
and all it takes is one distract-
ed person to create a recipe for
disaster," he said.

Rebecca Wong, a senior art
education major, was hit by a
car last school year.

Wong said, "As a pedestrian
you can't just assume the car wait until they slow down be-
will stop, you must make eye fore even stepping onto the
contact with the driver or just crosswalk."

and Oscar Espinosa cross Univer-
