Campus Ministries is reach-
ing out to community students
by providing a social network
that will keep them involved

"I've lived off campus for
two and a half years and I defi-
nitely feel out of touch with
campus happenings and so-
cial gatherings sponsored by
Southern," said Katie Rumppe,
a senior journalism major.

Blu_SAUce, Building Lov-
ing Unity; the Southern Ad-
ventist University Commuter
Experience, was developed by
Kevin Kibble, Southern's asso-
ciate chaplain.

"We needed a ministry that
would target students that are
not in the dorm, and in order
to get people's attention you
have to try something differ-
ent," Kibble said.

Last school year was the
first year of the Blu_SAUce
program. It focused on the
community and Southern Vil-
lage students through different
social events, such as contests

More than a thousand
Southern students are going to
the large tent in front of Ma-
bel Wood Hall each evening
this week to hear Peter Greg-
ory, director of Iona Missions,
speak for the annual InTents

Gregory, who presented a
seminar at SEYC two weeks
ago, is back on campus thanks

to former assistant chaplain,
Ruben Covarrubias. Covarru-
bias, currently the director of
Yes Ministries, heard Gregory
preach during Asian Heritage
vespers last April, and invited
him to speak at InTents.

Monday night, Gregory
opened the Week of Prayer by
focusing on the spiritual para-
dise that was lost in the Gar-
den of Eden. He emphasized
that only by accepting Jesus as

Savior will sinners re-discover
that paradise. Gregory spoke
about becoming blessed by the
Beatitudes on Tuesday eve-

Gregory's clear illustra-
tions, combined with humor,

LAC night

Tribal rhythms, an ancient
pyramid and village huts
transformed lies P.E. Center
into an ancient Latin Ameri-
can jungle at this year's Latin
American Club Night.

Students mingled around
dressed as tribal Indians vis-
iting different booths that
served Latin American food.

As students began to file in,
many were amazed at the re-
alistic atmosphere.

"From the moment I walked
in, it was a transformation,"
said Myron Jenkins, a fresh-
man theology major. "It made

you feel like you were in the
ancient culture."

LAC Night's ancient Latin
American theme was based
on the Mayan, Aztec, Inca and
other ancient Indian tribes.
LAC officers wanted to try
something different from pre-
vious years to show students
that Latin American culture
has more to it than music and

a festival atmosphere, said
Natali Juarbe, LAC president.

"I wanted to do something
that would reflect our Latin
American culture."

In addition to entertain-
ing students, LAC's goal
was to make learning about
Latin American history a

Fee required for
faculty Wellness
Center use

With the grand opening of
the Hulsey Wellness Center
right around the corner, some
faculty members are con-
cerned about the amount they
will have to pay in order to uti-
lize the amenities of the Well-
ness Center, said Phil Garver,
dean of the School of Health
and Wellness.

A membership fee of $200
a year is the cost for faculty
members who want to use the
services at the Wellness Cen-
ter, and an additional $100 for
their spouse, Garver said. The
$200 membership fee will go
towards the center's daily op-
eration, he added.

"It's a fairly reasonable
price to pay in comparison to
the Rush and other wellness
facilities in the area," said
Marty Hamilton, associate
vice president of financial ad-

Garver said that faculty
members will receive a rebate
from their insurance after they
have exercised a certain num-
ber of hours at the wellness

Even with the rebate, some
faculty members are saying
the center is just a little too
pricey and not family friendly.
Linda Crumley, a professor
in the School of Communica-
tion & Journalism, said with
two children in private school,
she just cannot afford to start
a membership that will only
cover her and a spouse.

SAU American Humanics
gets first student director

Melissa Couser


The American Human-
ics (AH) program has a new
campus executive director this
year; Chris Mateo, senior pub-
lic relations major, will be the
first student ever to head the

"I think Chris will be an ex-
cellent director," said Natalia
Lopez-Thismon, a senior pub-
lic relations major. "He has
the experience and knowl-
edge necessary for tire job."

Mateo first got involved
in AH during his sophomore
year when a friend suggested
it might interest him. He was
a biology major at the time,
but left the department and
changed his major to public

"I'm passionate about AH
because I believe in their mis-
sion to prepare the new gen-
eration of non-profit leaders,"
Mateo said. "I also believe in
the mission of our Lord Jesus
Christ and AH prepares me
to care for others as my living
and my mission."

When Lynn Cauldwell, for-
mer executive director, left
Southern last year to pursue
her doctoral degree, Mateo
was offered the director posi-

Mateo said that this year
he wants to continue to get
the group more involved in
community service, and bring
more of a Christ-centered fo-
cus to the program.

American Humanics is a
national organization affiliat-
ed with more than 75 colleges
and universities. The program
is designed to teach students
the skills they need to become
leaders in the non-profit sec-
tor and provide certification in
non-profit competencies such
as fundraising, management
and marketing.

The AH program at South-
ern was started 10 years ago
in 1998. Southern is the only
Adventist college, and one of
only a few Christian schools,
that offers the program.

Students in the program
are excited about the changes.
Laurel Dominesey, a senior
non-profit administration and
development major, said,
"[Chris] is fully prepared to
take AH on, I think he'll have
some great ideas for the year."

New graduate

In an effort to increase rec-

ness have been added to the

There are 203 graduate stu-
dents this year, an increase
from 163 students last year.
The university, however,
would like to see even more
undergraduate students go
into graduate programs.

According to Education and
Psychology Graduate Coordi-
nator Mikhaile Spence, South-
em has put a lot of focus on
undergraduate recruitment,
but graduate candidates are a
different population with dif-
ferent questions.


"That recognition led us
[to] having someone to work
specifically with graduate pro-
grams," Spence said.

Gauthier had been in real
estate before moving from
Hagerstown, Md. to take this
position. Her daughter Kelli,
a 2006 Southern graduate,
saw the new position through
alumni e-mail. She sent it on
to Gauthier, who had her first
interview in March.

"Through a lot of circum-
stances and providential doors
opening and closing, I re-
ally felt that I was led to come
down here," Gauthier said.

Her first project, set for
completion at the beginning
of October, is designing a new
marketing plan for graduate
studies. After that, Gauthier
will be spending more time
out of the office and in the
community meeting people,
researching marketing meth-
ods and recruiting for South-
em's graduate programs.

Collegedale airport expands its runway

Erica Richards

Qtabf Writer

Collegedale Airport is ex-
panding its runway for the
third time since 1965, making
room for more jet traffic and
possible business with Volk-

Since last summer the Col-
legedale Airport bought 55
acres of city-owned property
that surrounded the end of
the runway and began its ex-
pansion. Before the construc-
tion, the Collegedale Airport
received most of its business
film personally owned planes
and a few small businesses.

Since its opening in 1965 as
a flight club, the airport has
continued to grow in size and
services offered. According
their Web site, the runway was
originally a 1,200-foot grass
strip and was then extended to
its present 4,700 feet in 1988.

The recent runway expan-
sion will permit more jet traf-
fic The runway is currently
long enough to allow jets to
land, but the operators are not
covered by insurance if an ac-
cident occurs said Chris Swain,
director of airport operations.
After the extension, the run-
way will be over 5,000 feet and
jets will be able to fly in with-
out safety concerns. The added
space will also make room for

additional hangers.

Some local homeowners
are worried the expansion
will contribute to an increase
in noise disturbance. Debbie
Higgens, an English professor
at Southern and Collegedale
resident lives directly across
from the airport.

Collegedale airport is proud of
the community-friendly repu-
tation it has created and wants
to continue to keep it that way
he said.

In addition to the growth
of business from the extended
runway, Collegedale airport
also offers a flight school, two

"I don't mind the sound of
the small planes, but the jets
are really loud., you can't sleep
or hold a conversation when
the jets come in," Higgens
said. "I'm not real happy about
them expanding."

However, Swain assures lo-
cal residents that the expan-
sion will be a positive change.

"I think they re worried that
it's going to turn into a Chatta-
nooga airport and that isn'tgo-
ingto happen," Swain said The

Music department grows

Angela McPherson

The demand for private in-
strumentlessons has increased
so much that the music depart-
ment hired two new adjunct
professors to deal strictly with
non-music majors, raising the
number of adjunct professors
who give private lessons to 17,
according to the School of Mu-

"It seems like Southern is
absolutely bursting this year,"
said Scott Ball, dean of the
School of Music. "It is not sur-
prising to us that there would
be a high demand for private

According to Ball, many
students come to the depart-
ment looking for a one credit
class to put them up to the 16
credit flat rate, but other stu-
dents have played instruments
all their lives and wish to con-
tinue learning.

Based on music's appren-

ticeship model of one-on-one
learning, "you don't just buy
trumpet playing for dummies,"
Ball said. "A private teacher is
a necessary element."

The music department of-
fers lessons in everything
from the bassoon to piano and
voice. Each student's lesson is
scheduled individually, and in
the past year the department
has had to turn away as many
as 20 students due to schedul-
ing conflicts.

Jan Cochrane, an adjunct
voice teacher who has been
teaching at Southern since
1991 feels the push for more
teachers is good.

"I definitely feel that the
music department should be
accessible to all students." Co-
chrane said. "I think through
the years there's been a cer-
tain snobbery that has existed
regarding the level an artist
has to be at in order to be an
artist. Everyone should be able

to participate on a level that is
appropriate for them."

For Shanna Crumley, a
freshman journalism major
taking double bass and voice
lessons as well as involvement
in orchestra and two choirs,
participation was essential.

"Music is one of my pas-
sions. I'm not ready to give it
up yet; I'll never be ready to
give it up. It's such a big part
of who I am."

Violin professor Mark Re-
neau used to split his time be-
tween three universities, but
has recently given Southern
his full attention.

According to Ball, the de-
partment will continue to ex-
pand, given that 230 to 250
students are currently enrolled
in private lessons.

Cochrane said, "Music
needs to stay as a staple in
all universities; Adventists as
a whole seem to be very sup-
portive of the arts."

Dorm room numbers change

Katie Freeland

Staff WnrrFB

Due to emergency hazards,
Thatcher South room numbers
were changed this summer af-
ter a year of meetings, coordi-
nating and reprogramming.

Emergency personnel such
as firefighters, police officers,
campus safety and other dis-
patchers needed a different
system in place to cut down on

"This directly impacts the
safety of the students by get-
ting help to them when and
where they need it," said David
Houtchens, fire safety manag-
er and associate life safety of-
ficer for Campus Safety.

In the past fire drills a map
^as handed to the firefight-

ers. The person conducting
the drill would say that some-
body was missing from a cer-
tain room number. With the
old numbering system, the
firefighter had no sense of di-
rection and had a hard time
telling what floor the missing
resident was living on.

To help explain this sys-
tem, Kassy Krause, the dean of
women at Southern, simplified
the numbers,

"The first number of the
four digits isithe floor number,
the second number is the sec-
tion of the building, and the
last two digits are the room
numbers," Krause said.

Not only was it confusing to
deans and emergency person-
nel, but to residents as well.

"I had a lot of girls com-
plaining they were moved to
Thatcher when they wanted to
