The tall mirror

Adam Wamack

Gimmy was on a search; he was on a
search to find the answer of long life- f
immortality. His map, the only hope he
had left, was telling him to cross the oceans
and find the oracle. He knew that the or-
acle would have the answer. He had trav- '
eled the oceans wide and;far, searching for
the answer, and as of yet, he still had none.
His search had led him to meet many, many
people— some worth his time and others...
well, let's just say he could have done with-
out wasting his time. Finally he came to
what he had expected to be his destination:
The Island of Wisdom. He disembarked
his ship, traveling far inland in search of
the one man who he knew would have his
answer. He crossed many mountains and
forged many rivers until finally he stood in
front of a small, thatched hut. He drew in
his breath, realizing only vaguely that he
had reached his goal. Slowly, he ducked his
head and entered in. Immediately he knew
that something was wrong. The room was
filled with a hazy, smoky air and had the
scent of home cooking, but he couldn't see
the oracle anywhere. The only thing that
stood erect in the far end of the hut was a
tall, rectangular object. He approached
with excited anticipation. This was his an-
swer, the answer to longevity, the answer to
his quest, the way to find how to live forever.
He crossed the room and came face to face
with the answer to live forever; but it was
only after a few seconds that he realized.,.
in front of him was a tall, rectangular mir-
ror, and looking back at him was none other
but himself. It was bnly then that Gimmy
realized, he was the only one capable of en-
joying the rest of his life.

Students raise money for Uganda

Last Sunday students from
Southern Adventist Univer-
sity and several other sur-
rounding schools participated
in the "Move for Uganda" at
Coolidge Park, an event that
raised awareness about the
war in Uganda involving child

"It's our way of raising
awareness in the community
to encourage others to fight
back against the injustices
committed against the chil-
dren of Uganda," said Anisha
Mathi, a junior health science

major who volunteered for the

The event consisted of a
5k race, a one mile fun run, a
continuous walk-a-thon and
an Ugandan-like village. The
village huts featured different
things such as a school where a
lecture on the history of Ugan-
da was given, a hut selling In-
visible Children merchandise,
a place where people could
write letters to their senators
and a hut with information
about the Ugandan culture.

Justin Jones, a senior re-
ligious studies major, was in
charge of the event along with
Danielle Baasch, a senior nurs-
ing major. Jones said exclud-

ing pledges that $2,000 was
raised on the day of the event.

All theimoney raised Sunday
is going to Invisible Children.
According the Invisible Chil-
dren Web site, Invisible Chil-
dren is an organization whose
mission is "to help bring home
the abducted child soldiers" in

"I was pleasantly surprised
at the turnout and excited
to see so many people come
out in support of the people
of Uganda," Baasch said. "I

New job Web site launched

Staff Writer

jiiliphittlpf rf';nii tt "' rT1 pH "

The Student Success Cen-
ter launched a new Web site
on March 23 to help students j ents t0 get connec ted in the

response. Jasmine Saxon, a
junior archeology major, was
impressed by all of the re-
sources Careerlink provides.

"Careerlink seems like a
great way for Southern stu-

get an edge on developing a
resume, applying for jobs and
registering for career develop-
ment events.

Jeremy Moore, the career
services coordinator, feels
this site will be a great aid in
helping students find jobs
during and after college,
especially in today's competi-
tive job market.

"It's the most thorough
job search engine I've come
across," Moore said. "The net-
working helps corporations
form relationships to recruit
new talent."

On the Web site, there are
three new links that help navi-
gate through career options.
The "majors" link lists many
different jobs one can obtain
with a certain major, while
the "links" button will lead to
different job boards. At the
top of the list is "Careerlink,"
the newest software program
and Internet site provided at
no cost to Southern students
and alumni.

With Careerlink, students
can post their job resumes, and
search for employers in the ar-
eas and fields they desire.

The site has had a good

real world," Saxon said. "Es-
pecially those graduating or
looking for internships."

U It's the



job search

engine I've

come across.

- Jeremy Moore


Courtney Herod, a senior
mass communication major,
feels Careerlink has a good
system to get employers in
contact with students.

"It's cool because it allows
businesses to register with the
school so they can view stu-
dents' profiles that fit the job
that they're willing to sell,"
Herod said.

To set up an account, stu-
dents and alumni can register

be because there are more op-

available to students, Hamil-

"I eat on campus because
it's convenient," said Chelsea
Foster, a senior biology ma-
jor living in the Southern Vil-

time to go back home and
make food."

Some Southern Village resi-

Compared to this week
last year, sales were up about
$1,300, Schoonard said.

The growing school popu-
lation also affects on-campus
spending becauseit means lon-

ger lines at some food places,
such as KR's and the cafeteria!
However, the administration
has worked to alleviate this
problem by remodeling KR's
during the summer of 2006,
opening up more space in the
cafeteria during the summer
of 2007, opening up the Kayak
during the fall 2008 semester,
and keeping some food options
open on Saturday nights.

"[The cafeteria] was built
for half the student population
we have today," Schoonard

The administration, along
with the Student Advisory
Committee, have been meet-
ing and discussing students'
suggestions and possible so-
lutions to problems like space
shortage and long lines. They
have also met with Southern
Village and dorm RAs to dis-
cuss student concerns.

However, renovations, re-
modeling and new buildings
will be costly.

"We need to think about
what is the best use of our
money," Schoonard said.

There are plans to remodel
both the CK menu and build-
ing, Frood said. Schoonard
added that there might even be
some changes made to KR's.

"We just want our students
to know that we're not just sit-
ting back and watching with-
out any concern," Frood said.
"I am actively trying to figure
out solutions."

students who registered has
dropped from 1,699 last se-
mester to 1,252 this semester.

One of the reasons for this
drop is that 556 students still
have restrictions, most of
which are financial. These fi-
nancial restrictions include
tuition, worship fines and
library fines.

Because so many students
still have restrictions, the
school has decided to extend
the pre-registration period
into the beginning of June.

According to Joni Zier, di-
rector of records and advise-
ment, Southern has never had
to make this extension before,
but they are concerned about
the economy. However, with
the extended dates, students
will have the opportunity to
get the help that they need
in order to set things straight
and then register right away
instead of waiting until July 1,
which is the date for new stu-
dent registration.

"It's just a sign to me that
we have more work to do," said

president of budgeting and fi-
nance. "We have to go through

has decided

to extend the


period into

Also because of the economy
and unemployment rate, some
students may chose to further
their education instead of go-
• ing into the work field.

"It's definitely a possibility
coming back for grad school,"
said Brad Child, a senior busi-
ness administration major.
"With the economy the way
it is, I am thinking down the
road, and I will be better off
with an MBA because there
will- be more possibilities
and I'll have a better chance
of being hired."

Even with the decline in
pre-registration numbers,
Frood is not worried.

"I'm an optimist and look-
ing forward to a good result
in August, but I fully recog-
nize where we are financially,"
Frood said. "Until then, we
just need to inform people of
what all their options are."

granted Zhuang's lawyer a
continuance for the trial,
which was originally sched-

neither the victim or the wit-
nesses appeared.

The victim and two of the
witnesses did not return to
Southern this semester or ap-
pear at any of the grand jury
trials, said Kevin Penrod, di-
rector of Campus Safety.

"It bothers me that we have
three non-Sevenfh-day Ad-
ventist students that have left
because of this," Penrod said.

Zhuang, who is an inter-

national student from China,
plans to return to Southern
next year if nothing changes
between now and then.

"I won't do it again because
I know they'll give me a hard
time," he said to the Accent. "I
learned from this."

Zhuang was suspended for
seven days, Penrod said: He
added that if an international
student is suspended for more
than seven days they lose their
student visa. Southern had
him go to counseling and put
him on probation, where he
has to check in with a dean

every night. He said South-
ern has helped him by giving
him rides to court, among
other things.

Services. I trust the judgment

At every location, the teams
