Speak Up and Spread Love

Delta Phi Epsilon Creates Website to Raise Awareness on Eating Disorders


LOVE“Love yourself unconditionally just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.”

This is just one of the many quotes that the girls of the University’s Delta Phi Epsilon sorority have displayed on the new website they developed to raise awareness about the commonality of eating disorders.

“I just want to spread awareness and let people know that you’re not alone; you can get better,” said website creator and Delta Phi Epsilon’s Vice President of Programming, junior, Marisa Meiskin.

Meiskin created the website and it has been revamped a few times since then. Upon returning from Winter Break, the website went through Head of Greek Life, Tyler Havens and then Delta Phi Epsilon’s headquarters before a press release was written about the site and it went out on the national website.

“I feel like every girl experiences body issues, you just have to learn to cope with it,” said Meiskin.

The Great Trip to the Great White North

University Snowriders Travel to Mt. Tremblant Canada


SR 1The Snowriders Club went on a snowboarding and skiing trip to Mount Tremblant in Quebec, Canada over winter break. The trip lasted from January 8 through 13.

“Mount Tremblant is one of the best mountains, and if you are able to experience it, it is truly life changing,” said Angela Rosa, President of the Snowriders Club, “Fresh powder with trails that are four miles long which is amazing.” Rosa has been President of the Snowriders Club for two years.

After a seven-hour bus ride, the Snowriders Club arrived in Canada. There were 31 club members on the trip in total, which was a decrease in the 102 members that attended the trip last winter break. “I was actually very pleased of how amazing this trip actually was,” said Rosa. “Since it was such a small group, everyone on the trip became very close.”

The Snowriders Club meets three times a semester to organize fundraisers and prepare for the trips as well as interest meetings. The Snowriders had no budget this year, according to Rosa, which made it difficult to put the trip together and cover the all of expenses. Although, according to Professor William Reynolds, a faculty advisor on the trip, the Club did receive $1,278 in special funding.

The Other Girls

Monmouth Dance Team Takes Third in The Battle of the Northeast Competition


DANCEIf you have ever been to a University football or basketball game than you have certainly seen this hard working group of students perform, whether it be during a time-out of a basketball game or half time at a football game. I’m not talking about the Cheerleading Squad. I’m not talking about the Pep Band. I’m talking about the Dance Team.

The University Dance Team was officially recognized during the spring semester of 2001. The team performs at every home football game as well as every home men and women’s basketball game. This year the dance team consists of nine girls; three freshman, one sophomore, four juniors and one senior.

Lauren Buonpane, junior math education major, is captain of the dance team, and has been dancing for 15 years. Buonpane came to the University with plans to join the dance team. “I love being able to dance after all these years,” explained Buonpane, “and being involved with the University is great.” As captain Buonpane holds the responsibility of running practices every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday, helping choreograph the dances and being a leader. Buonpane said, “Being a junior and being captain is a lot of work, but the team has really come together this year and I am proud of all the girls for the effort they put in every week.”

Club Baseball Team “Hits” the University

Students Put Together a Baseball Club Team


Club BaseballA club baseball team was re-cently formed at the University by three sophomores looking to continue playing the game at a competitive level in college. Prior to this club, the University only had the main Monmouth team, and anyone else looking to play baseball was forced to look outside the University for a team or settle for intramural softball.

Joe D’Amico, a sophomore majoring in history and second-ary education, was one of the founding members of the club team.

“I didn’t ever want to stop playing baseball. My friends and I were very disappointed when we came here and there was no team, so we started one so that we never had to stop playing at the competitive level,” said D’Amico.

D’Amico, along with sopho-mores Chris Bruno and Justin Morik, split the work in order to get this team started. They had to write up a detailed constitu-tion, find insurance, an advisor, a league to join, equipment to use and enough students to put together a full roster.

Bruno is currently organizing a roster, attendance and dues, but he said finding an advisor with spare time to devote to a club team such as this was one of the more difficult parts of put- ting it all together. “We talked to several staff members and many of them were too busy to take on this responsibility, which is understandable. Eventually, we talked to Tom McCarthy and he was very enthusiastic about the team and confirmed that he would be the team’s advisor.”

McCarthy has been with the University for four and a half years as one of the psychologi-cal counselors at the Office of Counseling and Psychological Services.

You Can’t “Beat” This Fundraiser

TKE Hosts Annual Car Smash Behind the Student Center


You Cant Beat FundraiserTau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) hosted its second annual Car Smash last Wednesday, October 26, in an effort to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event took place behind the Student Center, and participants were charged money to hit the car.

Participants were provided with safety goggles and a sledge hammer. Signing a waiver was required for liability reasons.

At the end of the day over $200 was raised for St. Jude by donations of students, faculty, and staff.

Duquesne, the opposing team for Homecoming weekend, was painted on the car to help promote school spirit.

The car was donated by Mazza & Sons Demolition and Recycling. Mazza & Sons helped by towing the car to the Student Center and then towing it back to their Recycling Center, to salvage the scrap metal.

Joe Dellera, sophomore, works at Mazza & Sons as a desk assistant. He is a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon and organized the event. He said, “I think it is a really good event, because it is interactive and everyone has an opportunity to participate. I’ve seen each department come and support St. Jude Chilren’s Research Hospital and it does raise a lot of money. Plus it’s fun!”

Demanuel Edmonson, senior, and current Vice President of TKE said, “I’m glad it’s not just students participating but faculty and staff as well.” When asked why students enjoyed hitting the car so much, he said, “It helps take frustrations out for midterms!”
