Bumming for the ID cardless

Adam Wamack

H""«" Fi"m»

Here at Southern, your life
force is connected 100 per-
cent to your ID card. If you
lose it, you may not survive
the day, certainly not the week
and don't even think about
the semester. You have to use
your ID card for everything:
eating food anywhere, sign-
ing out, signing in, entering
your dorm, entering your hall,
checking out books, playing
billiards in the Student Center
and many, many other daily
activities of a college student.
But count your blessings-
one day we'll have to swipe to
enter our bathrooms, to get a
single square of toilet paper,

to turn the lights on/off, to
talk to friends in the cafe or
to even breathe the air. How-
ever, by some strange series of
events, if you happen to lose
your card, life does not need
to end— there is always hope!
Here are a few ideas of what
you can do without your ID
Card here at SAU to survive.

. You're still allowed to
breathe without an ID Card...
for now.

• Stand in the begging line
outside of KK's hoping that
someone will not want to fin-
ish a Panini Turkey or Quesa-

• Sneak in the back of CK,
pretend you work there, and

make yourself a nice meal.

. Ask around to see who has
extra $$ on their card in the
cafeteria (advice: avoid wast-
ing time asking most guys and
those super-thin girls who eat
like a grown man and gain ab-
solutely no a pound).

. Follow your roommate
around until he also needs to
go to the room.

• If you know you're late,
sleep in your car because you
can't get into the dorm.

• Pray that your suite mate
is around to let you into your
room (advice: don't annoy,
by sly, because your suite
mate must be an ally and not
an enemy)

How to let him (or her) down easy

Wondering how tp say "no" to a guy (or girl, I suppose) you don't want to date, but don't want

Community service day
at Southern turned out to be
the largest one on record with
more than 850 students show-

estimated that students saved
organizations in the commu-

this is the most we've had,"
said Melissa Tortal, communi-

Students prepare for job fair

John Shoemaker

Siaif Writes

Southern students are pre-
paring to interact with corpo-
rate leaders and companies at
Meet the Firms on Thursday,
Feb. 19 at the Collegedale
Church from 2 to 5 p.m.

The Schools of Business
& Management, Journalism
& Communication, Comput-
ing, Nursing and the English
department are all preparing
students for Meet the Firms
through various methods. Pro-
fessors as well as office man-
agers are constantly e-mailing
students, distributing flyers,
advocating the event in class
and specifically sending invi-
tations to juniors and seniors.
The School of Business &
Management is educating its
students by requiring an up-
per division course, preparing
to meet the firms, in order to
teach students the importance
of etiquette, resume writing,
and interview skills.

"I have had an awesome ex-
perience with Meet the Firms,"
said Misael Dominguez, a
junior accounting major. "It
has given me experience and
helped me prepare for when I
graduate and I am out in the
world of business seeking that
perfect job."

Special guest speakers pres-

ent specific skills each class
period in order to enhance the
skills needed to be successful
in the business world.

Carrie Harlin, director of
Students in Free Enterprise,
said Meet the Firms is a posi-
tive event regardless of wheth-
er or not students are able to
find ajob.

"Evern if you don't see the
company you are looking for
at Meet the Firms, it is still a
good idea to network, brush
up on your interviewing skills
and get your name out there,"
Harlin said.

Alexandru Mihai, a mas-
ter's student in business ad-
ministration believes Meet
the Firms is helpful for every

"Meet the Firms is a great
opportunity for students to
get familiarized with local and
national companies," Mihai
said. "Students get a chance to
network with these companies
and understand what employ-
ers look for in employees."

Although Meet the Firms is
held semiannually in thespring
and fall semesters, a health ca-
reer fair is held on the same
day as Meet the Firms in the
spring. Southern's adminis-
tration is hoping to change the
scheduling in order to provide
an opportunity for students to
participate in both events.

Staef Writer —

Katie McGralh joined the
library staff as the reference
and instruction librarian on
Jan. 5.

McGrath graduated from
Southern in 2000 with a Bach-
elor of Arts degree in English.
She was also a Southern Schol-
ar and was awarded Southern
English Major of the Year. She
also holds a master's degree in
education in instructional me-
dia and instructional technol-
ogy from East Tennessee State

Before coming to Southern,
McGrath was head librarian
at Michigan Avenue School
in Cleveland, Tenn. Although
she enjoyed her previous job,
McGrath said she is glad to be
back at Southern.

Frank Di Memmo, media
librarian, is pleased to have
McGrath working at Southern
as well. "She's full of exciting
ideas," Di Memmo said.

McGrath said she always
hoped to return to Southern.

"I was in love with South-
ern," she said. "My parents
had a hard time getting me to

As the reference and in-
struction librarian, McGrath
has many responsibilities,
one of which is helping teach
classes on how to utilize the li-
brary's resources. Teachers of-
ten bring their students in for
a class period, and McGrath
can show them how they can
find information with library

"She's a really friendly per-
son, and you can tell she's
really eager to help students
out," said Rachel Fehl, a junior
English major. "I heard her
say once, Tou know, don't be
afraid to come into my office,
even if my doors are closed.
They only make me close my
doors 'cause I'm too loud.'"

Besides helping students;
McGrath also oversees interli-
brary loans. If a student needs
a book or article that the li-
brary does not have, McGrath
can get it for them within sev-
en days.

Another one of McGralk'J
responsibilities is to help «
ganize events.

McGrath said she
like to see more events t
place in the library so it canlJ
a cultural haven. Her ideasit
elude showcasing artwork, ij
viting small groups to perfonj
chamber music and bringi
in numerous lecture series.

McGrath said, "Yon caul

Museum or other events 4
take place downtown, so v
feel that this is a great v

ences at Southern."

Special awards were given
to Astrid Conibear and Pierre

Conibear, the office manag-
er of the School of Education
and Psychology was given the
President's Award for Cus-
tomer Service Excellence and
Nzokizwanimana, a professor

The turnout at the brunch
was unexpectedly high, with
more than 500 employees and
their families in attendance.

"It's one of the few times
of the year that there is the
option for all employees and
their families to come togeth-

er and fellowship," President
Gordon Bietz said.
. The brunch is a time to ap-
preciate many employees.
There are awards, not only for
customer service and commu-
nity service, but also for the

ployee has worked at South-

"Administration wanted to
recognize employees for their
time at Southern, whether it

assistant to the president. "It

ognize the employees for spe-

"I liked his advice on how

freshman broadcast journal-
ism major.

Andrews shared his knowl-
edge and advice as a profes-
sional, giving students insight
on what is happening in the
media world and how best to
make the most of their future

"We wanted to bring some-
one in from the professional
world who could give our
students a first-hand glimpse
of the changes happening in
the media today," said Greg
Rumsey, dean of the School
of Journalism & Communica-
tion. "I was pleased with the
practical examples and advice
Mr. Andrews offered."

The social work and fam-
ily studies department has
planned a European Study
Tour to take place May 4
through May 28, 2009.

On this tour, students will
explore eight different coun-
tries: France, Italy, Germany,
Austria, Switzerland, England,
Belgium and the Netherlands.
Students who wish to go can
receive up to six credit hours
at a total cost of $4,999 for the
tour. The tour cost includes
round trip airfare, hotel ac-
commodations, in-country
travel, one meal per day and
basic insurance.

Ed Lamb and Stanley Ste-
venson, professors in the so-
cial work department are the
chaperones for the tour. Lamb
started the European tour for
the social work department in
1989. The tour is offered every
other year. Stevenson has ac-
companied Lamb on the tours
since 2002.

The European Study Tour is
a great opportunity for anyone

who not only wishes to receive
credits, but also to experi-
ence Europe in a way that not
many others get to. The tour is
unique because Lamb and Ste-
venson take the students off
the beaten pathto experi-
ence the people and culture
for themselves and not just to
visit the tourist spots.

"Students are not just go-
ing to see architecture, but to
immerse themselves in the
culture," Stevenson said.

Lamb and Stevenson are
finalizing the itinerary for the
tour now and are both very ex-
cited about some of the desti-
nations they plan on going to.
"Gimmelwald, Switzerland
is my favorite place to visit,
and Venice is one of the most
unique cities in the world,"
Lamb said.

Many students have already
signed up to go on the tour.
Brandon Pierce, a junior so-
cial work major said, "I am so
grateful for the opportunity to
go to Europe I have never been
out of the country. I think it is
an amazing price for an amaz-
ing trip."
