"Unprepared anonymous" meeting

Adam Wamack

Hi'Mnp FnimH

Hi, my name is Seth Daniel
Able, but you can call me Mr.
Able, if you like, and I am un-

(Everyone in unison) "HI

Well, here are some of the
things that I think have attrib-
uted to my being unprepared:

I think that Adven-
tist school is just like the
real world. Adventist grade
school, middle school, high
school, and university; dorm
worships, vespers and Sab-
bath checks: Boy, it sure is
easy to be a Christian, and it

will be EXACLTY the same in
the real world, too!

My parents' religion is
my religion. Because they
told me so, that's why.

I am not here to learn
from my teachers; my
teachers are here for me!
I expect my teachers to ac-
commodate my every request:
"Slow down on the Power
Point lecture," "Give me a
study guide for the exam,"
"Let me turn this in four weeks
late for full credit!" Graduate
school here I come!

I am afraid of atheists. I
harbor a very real fear of athe-
ists. I have not been taught
how to discuss God with some-
one who, not only doesn't

have the same beliefs in God
that I do, but actually thinks
that the idea upon which my
beliefs rest does not even ex-
ist! Maybe I should have been
better prepared for such a real
problem; maybe I should have
cared more to be prepared.

I love haystacks. There's
no irony here, I just really love

The amount of God-
fearing women on campus
is normal. I am sure that no
matter where I go in the world
I will find the same amount of
wonderful, intelligent, caring,
God-fearing women that I do
on this campus. What's the
hurry, right?

Christmas comes to the Promenade

Katie Freeland

More than 2,000 students
and community members alike
enjoyed the annual Christmas
on the Promenade Tuesday,
Dec. 2. ,

Festivities began at 6:30
p.m. with the Collegedale
Academy band playing popu-
lar Christmas tunes. The au-
dience was then asked to par-
ticipate in singing Christmas
carols, and the countdown
commenced— the 32-foot tall
tree, lit with more than 3,000
lights, illuminated Taylor Cir-
cle for all to enjoy.

Many people shared their
favorite part of Christmas on
the Promenade.

"When they lit the tree, the

New Viewbook debut


Staff Wpittb L_

The Southern Viewbook,
one of the recruitment materi-
als that goes out to high school
seniors and prospective stu-
dents, has been updated.

"The Viewbook is a show-
piece to high school seniors
that shows what Southern is
all about," said Ruthie Gray,
director of Marketing & Uni-
versity Relations. "This new
format is less copy-heavy, has
more visuals and keeps spiri-
tuality the center of focus."

Marketing & University Re-
lations teamed up with Enroll-
ment Services to brainstorm
ideas and put in motion the
plans for a new look, feel and
message for the Viewbook.

Previously focus groups
were used as feedback, but
this time an online survey was
used asking future students
what they would like to see in
the Viewbook, Gray said.

Katie Rent, a senior at
Highland View Academy en-
joyed the new Viewbook. She
said, "The information in it is
useful and the theme is very

The theme "Actual Results
May Vary" from previous
years has been changed to "Be
a Part."

"'Be a Part' describes our

emphasis on building a sense
of community, and also builds
on the concept that each stu-
dent brings their different
spiritual gifts and together we
make up the Body of Christ,"
said Marc Grundy, associate
vice president of Marketing
& Enrollment Services. "Stu-
dents want to feel like they are
part of something bigger than
themselves. Collectively as
the Body of Christ we all con-
tribute to something here at
Southern that is much bigger
than ourselves."

Every September the View-
book is mailed to all seniors
attending an academy in the
Southern Union. Prospective
students who show interest
and ask for information about
the school also receive a copy,
Gray said.

The work for the new View-
book started two and a half
years ago and was completed
at the beginning of this school

"We worked on it so long
and we were glad to see the
product and result of a lot of
planning," said Ingrid Skantz,
associate director of Market-
ing & University Relations.

Grundy said the Viewbook
typically gets updated every
five to six years.

Those living in on-campus
housing now have the option
whether or not to spend their
money at the Village Market.

Last school year the ViHpage
Market was not an additional
charge, but part of the dorm
students' food plan. Students
were able to spend $400 a year
of their $2,000 food plan at
the Village Market. This year
the food plan was reduced to
$1,850 as well as an optional
