Freshman— You know

you're a freshman if you slow
down and look hesitantly
at the oncoming cars at the
crosswalk either by the gym or
by the Campus Kitchen before
you cross; then you wave at
them for stopping. Learn the
way it works already!

Sophomore— You know
you're a sophomore when you
make fun of all the "immature

freshman" and get really of-
fended if someone makes a
mistake and asks if you are a
freshman yourself.

Junior— You know you're
a junior when your answer to
"What year are you?" is always
a measurement of how long
it'll be until you are a senior,
for example: "I'll be a senior
next semester," or "I only need

Wintley Phipps will sing for
a benefit concert in the Colleg-
edale Church, Saturday, Feb.
7 at 4 p.m. The concert will
be free of charge, but an of-
fering will be taken to benefit
the U.S. Dream Academy that
Phipps founded in 1998.

The vision of the U.S. Dream
Academy is, "To create an army
of young men and women with
positive dreams for their lives,
equipped with the tools to
make those dreams a reality."

Eleven centers throughout
America's major metropolitan
areas provide mentoring and
tutoring to children of incar-
cerated parents and children
falling behind in school.

John Nixon, pastor of the
Collegedale Church, attended
college with Wintley and set
up the concert.

"He has to do quite a bit of
fundraising to keep it [Dream
Academy] going strong and the
idea of a benefit concert at our
church came up," Nixon said.
"I was struck that the timing

would be
perfect for
our church
with our
on local

nal focus,

of which Dream Academy is
a prime example."

Spalding Cove
apartments to
provide more
family housing

Yvonne Saint- Villiers

Staff W.i». '

At the first of the year, fami-
lies began to move to Spalding
Cove Apartments, the newest
addition to Southern's family

With Southern struggling to
provide parking for everyone
on campus, there is also the is-
sue of housing. Spalding Cove
was purchased by Southern
last October to provide addi-
tional housing for 28 married
students and their families.
Right now, there are still 18
non-student families residing
there, but as they find alterna-
tive housing, Southern is mov-
ing over new residents.

"We are planning to fill
openings with student families
as current residents choose to
move out," said Cindi Young,
coordinator for student fam-
ily & faculty housing. "We
are probably looking at two
to three years... although de-
pending on Southern's needs
for student housing, it may
not totally convert to student
housing in that time frame."

are all the same, with many

Southern finalists perform



Chris Clouzet
Snf W""«

For nearly two hours, sev-
en musicians performed at
the Annual Concerto Concert
presented by Southern's Sym-
phony Orchestra in the Colleg-
edale Church on Jan. 25.

The concert featured the fi-
nalists of the School of Music's
Concerto Competition, which
is an annual event started by
the orchestra's previous con-
ductor, Orlo Gilbert, in 1990.

By last October, 25 par-
ticipants had mailed in CD re-
cordings of their best perfor-
mances to Laurie Minner, the
current orchestra conductor.
Minner said 20 were chosen
by the faculty to perform live
before a panel of six judges.
The winners of the competi-
tion were the seven soloists
featured in the recent concert.
"Many people came to me
after the concert and said it
was the best concerto concert
they remember attending,"
Minner said.

The orchestra only had
three weeks to prepare for the
concert, including just two
weeks of rehearsals with the
soloists, one of whom traveled
from California to perform.

Jonathan Harper, a senior
at Georgia-Cumberland Acad-

emy and previous finalist in
the concerto competition of
2007, said he's been practicing
between two and four hours a
day since October. Harper had
support from his older brother
Jeff, a junior theology major,
who is proud of his younger

"I was taking piano lessons
and he wanted to learn a few
notes," Harper said. "I taught
him those first few notes."

For the finalists studying
at Southern, practicing with
the orchestra did not involve
much more than getting out of
their seat and heading to the
front with their instrument.
It took more scheduling to fit
in practices with the two final-
ists from Georgia-Cumberland
Academy. Thirteen-year-old
Miclen LaiPang began prac-
ticing with the orchestra the
Friday immediately preceding
Sunday's concert.

Of the seven finalists, four
were from Southern. Chelsea
Appel, a senior music major
and Justin Stone, a junior
nursing and piano perfor-
mance major, both performed
on the piano. Doug Baasch, a
senior music performance ma-
jor, played the cello; and Josi-
anne Bailey, a freshman nurs-
ing and music performance
major, played the flute.

international students from
Vietnam arrived at Southern
on Dec. 31 to pursue an edu-

It took Hai Vo, a freshman
computer science major, and
Phuong Nguyen, a freshman
general studies major, six
months to figure out how to
apply to Southern. After three
stops and a 24 hour plane ride,
they finally arrived.

iC Every

to study in the

is their dream. ' '
-Phuong Nguyen

"Getting to Southern was
not at all easy," Nguyen said.

Besides choosing a school
based on the acceptance of
their GPA, SAT scores and fi-
nancial aid, the students no-
ticed Southern because of the
high ranking of the school in
the 2009 top colleges edition
of the U.S. News and World

"Every Vietnamese student
wants' to study in the United
States," Nguyen said. "It is
their dream."

The transfer process and
culture shock of being in
America has been overwhelm-
ing for both of them. Nguyen
and Vo agree that they have
found few similarities between
the U.S. and Vietnam.

Although both Vo andNguy-
en had to leave their friends,
family, culture, and two years
of college credits behind, they
have comfortably settled into
the campus atmosphere.

"There are so many nice
people here," Vo said. "Every-
one is very friendly."

According to Mark Grun-
dy, associate vice president
of Marketing & Enrollment
Services, the admission pro-
cess into Southern from a

communist country is a (ml
jor challenge. Students misll
overcome several obstacles to I

academic program.

First, applicants must re-|
ceive a student visa. Then a]
plicants' previous schools
must be up to par with the at- 1
ademics offered at Southern!
Finally, applicants mustpassi]

Therefore, MarketingfkEal

[Library hosts Hefferlin art exhibit

Students and community
members gathered in the Mc-
Kee Library on Jan. 21 to view
I the artwork of Melissa Heffer-

To set the tone for the eve-
ning, Southern's string quartet
upstairs as guests and
students entered the library.
Greeters stood by the front
Joors to welcome those at-
tending, and members of the
library staff served refresh-
ments while guests looked at
the artwork.

"As you walked in, it felt like

real art gallery," said Brit-
tany Webster, a sophomore
music education major. "The
whole program was really set
up well."

After thanking the donors
who provided their original
Merlin paintings for the ex-
libit, President Gordon Bietz
introduced Hefferlin to the
juests. Bietz has known Hef-
erlin for many years and was
iroud to have her showcase
ler artwork.

"Her growing reputation
gives us a sense of pride," Bi-


Hefferlin began by telling
her life story about growing up
in the countryside near Chat-
tanooga. As a result, farm and
ranch imagery played an im-
portant role in her artwork.
Hefferlin talked about how
both of her parents worked at
Southern, what it was like to
study art in Russia during the
Soviet period and why she has
such a passion for art.

"Art enhances the quality
of life," she said. "It is not the
prettiness that matters, it's

Hefferlin's art has been
showcased in many places
around the world, including

New York, Los Angeles, Den-
ver, London, Zurich and all
over the Southeastern U.S.
When the city of Chattanooga
needed an artist to paint a
commemorative mural to cel-
ebrate the opening of the 21st
Century Waterfront Develop-
ment, they chose Hefferlin for
the job. She also co-wrote a
coffee table book about Rus-
sian painting.

Joe Mocnik, the director of
libraries, was happy with how
the event went.

™rson and Dwight Mag-

said the renovated recreation
room will help to accommo-
date the football viewers and
many fantasy football enthu-
siasts to watch more than one
game at a time.

Outside the TV area, the
ping-pong and pool tables will
remain, along with another
flat-screen TV and seating for
approximately 40 more resi-

"When March Madness is
on, it's hard to get a bunch of
guys into one area to watch a
game," Patterson said. 'This
will create more viewing and
seating options."

The work is scheduled to
be done a week after spring
break so students can enjoy
the renovated room for the
rest of the semester.

"We will probably close the
recreation room for a couple

of weeks before spring break,"
Magers said. "We hope to
have it open again a couple of
weeks into March.

Talge has been working
with Southern architect, Fred
Turner, on the plans for the
renovation, which were ap-
proved Jan. 26.

According to current and
former staff, the recreation
room has not been renovated
since the mid-1980s.

Dennis Negron, a profes-
sor in the English department
and former associate dean
in Talge, said the recreation
room is slightly different since
he was attending Southern in


"The TV area is pretty
much the same," Negron said.
"It used to be a weight room

appealing to their tenants.

"Each apartment is a two-
bedroom, one and a half bath
unit that has a garage with
extra storage," Young said.
"With the townhouse style,
there is a patio out from the
garage and a large deck above
it off the kitchen. The kitchens
have stoves, refrigerators and
dishwasher. For new student
families moving into the apart-
ments, a washer and dryer are
also provided."

The units are being assessed
and, if necessary, renovated for
the new residents as the for-
mer residents move out. Kim
Sturm and her team are mak-


ing sure that each unit is ready
for the new tenants moving in.
"We go in and access whatever
damages," Sturm said. "Paint,
things broken, carpet clean-
ing, lights etcetera."

David Biehl, a master's
student in business manage-
ment, has lived in Spalding
Cove even before Southern
purchased them. He enjoys
living there andthinks it is
a great alternative to living in
the dorm. "The Spalding Cove
Apartments are nice," Biehl
said. Biel said the apartments
have some advantages over
living in the dorm, like the fact
that the neighbors are quieter.
There are some disadvantages
too. He added, his friends can-
not live "just down the hall."
