"This show is really great
because it gives you something
to shoot for as an artist," Turn-
er said. "People come through
and see your work and it makes
you proud."

Hasel said the show will
reflect different areas of the
School of Visual Art & Design
including work from drawing,
painting and design classes.

"We will pack the walls to
get as many students' work
shown as possible," Hasel

Jessica Weaver, a sopho-

was also a part of last year's
show and said she hopes to be
involved again this year.

"As an artist, it's fun to show
your work," Weaver said. "But
it's also a privilege to go and
support your fellow artists"

Weaver said she would en-

Intersection to be redom

Yvonne Saint- Viluers

yy npnpg^ finillhTn ftHll

The Tennessee Department
of Transportation has plans
to redesign the intersection of
Old Lee Highway and Apison
Pike to begin this fall.

The existing intersection
is in need of improvement,
causing confusion and often

"The redesign of the inter-
section of Old Lee Highway
and Apison Pike will be much
more functional than the cur-
rent design," said Jennifer
Flynn, regional community
relations officer for the Ten-
nessee Department of Trans-
portation. "It will also improve
the safety of the intersection."

The project will also in-
clude 0.6 miles of Apison Pike
starting at the Enterprise
South interchange off of I-75
at mile marker nine and con-
tinue down Apison Pike to Old
Lee Highway.

The new intersection will
provide more options for in-
terstate access to motorists
who must travel in to and out
of the fast-growing Colleg-
edale area.

This project will not be de-

veloped and constructed in
phases as traditionally done.
Instead, some of the project's
phases will occur simultane-

"We will award the project
to a contractor this summer
who has partnered with a de-
sign consultant," Flynn said.

will also miss the cyclical na-
ture of teaching,

However there are some
things Aagaard will not miss.

"Making and grading exams
and reading papers, if I could
just teach the class without
that, I would stay," he said.

His future plans include
teaching a three-week course
in Nairobi, Kenya during the
summer and moving to Bend,

their daughter and her family.
Family is important to
him and he said that teach-

"I identify with my career as

Aagaard said. Teaching is like

and it has allowed me to be a

Dave Ekkens, professor in
the biology department, said
Richard Seidel was recently
hired as a professor in the biol-
ogy department to fill the posi-
tion left by Aagaard. Seidel, a
1998 graduate of Southern,
expects to receive his Ph.D.
by June 2009. He will be
moving to the Collegedale
area this summer with his wife
and son.

"Dr. Aagaard's will be pretty

department. "We will miss his

action with students on trips."

the word 'Southern' is larger

The university's "sign shop"
worked with Fast Signs in
Chattanooga to have the alu-

the new word mark, Hamil-

three to four weeks to have
it completed and ready to

Lu Xu, a junior business ad-

"I think the sign is more vi-

After the two month pro-

from plant services installed
the sign to the racks of the
wall, replacing ' the old sign
with the new.

Hamilton said, "Everyone
was ready for the old sign to
be replaced." There was lots of
motivation and excitement."


Yearbook to have full-color

Jason Busch
Statf Warn

Southern students used to
the yearbooks of the past are
in for a surprise this year as
the first full-color Southern
yearbook rolls off the press.

"I've always felt like there
was room for improvement,"
said Doug Baasch, SA presi-
dent. "We had some extra
money in the budget that I
felt would go well toward
the yearbook."

The theme of this year's
Memories is "True to your
colors." In addition to be-
ing full-color, it also features
student-written articles and a
soft cover.

"The feel of the book is more
like a magazine," said Rainey
Park, Southern Memories
editor. "Even though there's
a theme that runs through the
whole book, each section has
its own feel."

The yearbook office has also
undergone changes this year

with an increased number
of staff and several recent-
ly-approved new Mac Pro

Although the yearbook staff
represents a variety of differ-
ent majors, such as nursing,
history, mass communications
and more, they have united in
their common interest in de-
sign and photography. The
2008-2009 yearbook is the
culmination of their work.

"I'm excited about this
year's yearbook," said Van-
essa Cutz, a sophomore Eng-
lish education major. "Blood,
sweat and tears have gone into
this and I know it's going to
be amazing."

Only 1,400 yearbooks are
ordered for the student body.
More can be ordered if there
is demand, but going to Straw-
berry Festival at the Student
Park on April 19 ensures
a copy.

Park said, "Make sure you
go to Strawberry Festival to
pick up your first ever full-col-
or yearbook."

The end of the year brings a time of reflection|

Chris Clouzet
Reucion Editor

Great gray clouds had as-
sembled and were passing by
overhead, saluting the sinking
sun that sighed softly in subtle
hues of soft pinks and reds.
Whispering good night to a
sleepy valley he disappeared
on his way to waking up sleepy
inhabitants somewhere on the
other side of the world.

I gazed wonderingly as the
clouds were painted with rosy
linings and deep bluish shad-
ows. They faithfully morphed
from one slow shape to anoth-
er, resolutely sailing their way
across the sky. I wanted to
capture every new, beautiful
nuance the heavens had to of-
fer, but my camera could hard-
ly take pictures fast enough.

Not being a very good pho-
tographer, I am often obliged
to take dozens, if not hun
dreds, of pictures in order to
capture just a handful that are

OK. Looking at those sunset
pictures later, I was glad I had
taken so many. While a few
were all right, most of them
were simply a reminder that
the sunset was much more re-
warding to witness in the sky
than on a computer screen.

I struggle with the same
things in real life. Do you?

Every school year since
second grade, it's this time of
year that requires the most re-
flection. The year's activities
are at a busy climax. The re-
wards of procrastination come
around full circle as projects
and papers are all due at once.
Soccer season seems to take
up every evening of the week,
including Sundays sometimes.
And of course, the summer
looms ahead looking rather
bittersweet. While it is a break
from studies, it also means
a break from good friends,
sometimes for a long time
several of them graduate and
"grow up." For me, at least,

nostalgia reigns.

I find myself falling asleep
with thoughts about how fun
summer camp will be, but
how much I'll miss everyone,
especially those heading over
to Loma Linda or overseas as
missionaries. I think about all
the good things the spring sun
allows us to do outside with
friends, then immediately
lament about all the time
required to finish up home-
work so that I can maintain
decent grades.

I want to capture all the
memories, but it is all swift-
ly sailing by and changing
too quickly. I feel lucky to
be exposed to just a handful
of them while dozens, if not
hundreds, waft away with the
passing clouds. But then the
Son reminds me that there is
someone in China watching
the sunset thousands of miles
away who is thinking of people

Theolocv major

The tires of my '93 Chrysler
Concorde spun contentedly
as I thumped along the road.
I forget where I was driv-
ing, but as I usually do when
I am in the car, I turned the
radio on and started flipping
through the stations hoping
to find a Christian one. After
going through all the chan-
nels, I finally stopped on 88.9
FM because I heard some guy

As I turned up the volume
and listened for a few minutes,
I began to catch on to what he
was saying. The radio preacher
was talking about the people
in Jerusalem during the time
when Jesus was here on earth.

Did I want
some eternal

machine type

of God that

would bless me

when I wanted

Him to?

The Jews were excited
about Jesus, the man said,
but many were excited for the
wrong reasons. In their imagi-
nation, they saw the Roman
armies driven from Jerusalem
and as they remembered Jesus

feeding the five thousand, they
envisioned a leader taking
care of their every need with
just a word. They visualized a
king who would be so capable
that none of them would have
to work. Jesus would provide
and do everything for them!

Then the preacher threw in
a one-liner that really made me
think. He suggested that many
of the people who believed in
Jesus "wanted a Burger King
and not a sovereign King!"
Snap! After he said that, I
didn't really pay attention to
the rest of the sermon because
I began to think about my own
life and why I wanted Jesus.

Did I want some eternal-
blessings-machine -type of
God that would bless me when
I wanted Him to? Did I desire

a vending machine Jesus that
I could pray to a couple times a
day and get what I wanted?

I realized my prayers
seemed to reflect that idea at
times. "Jesus, bless my soccer
