Love Struck

Alpha Sigma Tau Raises Suicide Awareness


Alpha Sigma Tau hosted their third annual Love Struck event at Pollak Theatre on Wednesday, February 15 at 10:00 pm. The event raised $1,305, which goes towards suicide awareness.

“Love Struck is an annual event that Alpha Sigma Tau has been holding for the last three years,” said Lauren Jackson, Alpha Sigma Tau event coordinator. “The purpose of this event was to raise money for suicide awareness in honor of our sister, Dana Peskowitz. All proceeds are donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,” said Jackson.

Love Struck is a dating game where six boys and six girls from various campus organizations compete for a date with a suitor of the opposite sex by getting asked random questions and doing different tasks to show off their skills.

This was the first time that Jackson was in charge of organizing the event for the sorority. Jackson’s job included planning the event, acquiring the contestants and running the event itself.

The hosts of the night were junior Dayna Zeises and senior Brian Hentz. Zeises is a member of Alpha Sigma Tau, and was a contestant in this event last year. Zeises had never hosted the event before. “I’m a little bit nervous, hopefully it will go away when I’m up there,” she said.

Brian Hentz, member of Sigma Tau Gamma said, “I host our event [Don’t Forget the Lyrics] every year so I’m doing that again in a few weeks. “Don’t Forget the Lyrics” will be held March 20 at 10:00 pm in Pollak Theatre.

Students to Launch Online News Portal

West Long Branch, NJ—The Verge, Monmouth University’s first student-run online news portal, will launch their website on Wednesday, February 29 at 2:30 pm in room 206 in the Jules Plangere Center.

The event is open to all University students and faculty. Light refreshments will be served.

“I am very excited about the launch of The Verge,” said Dr. Chad Dell, Communication Department Chair. “This represents a brand new opportunity for students to work in a multimedia environment and to get their work viewed by the world.”

The Verge student news portal was created for the purpose of providing the Monmouth University community with information and issues in and around the university and to act as a forum for expression of the ideas of its audience. It allows students that are interested in journalism, communication and other multimedia to gain experience while also exploring the alternative platforms that are used in the creation and dissemination of the news today.

Involvement Fair Springs Into Action

The University doesn’t often have involvement fairs in the spring, but over 100 students turned out for what faculty and club leaders alike described as a very successful event. Thirty-six stands were set up in the meeting halls on the second floor of the student center, each allowing some of the University’s most interesting and active groups a chance to introduce themselves to students.

All manners of students attended the event. The crowd was a colorful mix of freshmen, transfer students and upperclassmen who had yet to explore all of their club interests. Some came simply to support a friend’s club, even if they weren’t members themselves.

The event began with a slow trickle of students. In the first half hour, those perusing the stands came sporadically and in small groups. As classes let out and word got around, larger groups began filing through the double doors.

Laura Fiorelli of The Monmouth Review said, “I feel that not as many people are here compared to the fall, but the interest is clear.”

The Monmouth Review was one of the many clubs at the fair. Also attending were The Outlook, the Student Activities Board, the Monmouth Math Club, Study Abroad Club, the Running Interest Group, Community Service Club and the Outdoors Club, among others.

Outdoors Club Goes Indoors

Surf Portion of Outdoors Club Gives Paddle Boarding Lessons in University Pool


odcThe surf portion of the Outdoors Club had their first gathering this past Sunday, February 12. Steve Steger, junior and surf chair of the Outdoors Club, gave paddle board lessons in the University pool.

The club reserved the pool in advance from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Eight members came out in addition to Professor William Reynolds, advisor of the club. The club brought two of their own paddle boards and one hybrid kayak/paddle board which was supplied by Steve Steger.

Steger described paddle boarding as similar to surfing but with a larger board. Like surfing you stand and balance on the board, but unlike surfing you don’t need a wave or even momentum to stand on the board. This made a still pool the ideal place to practice before jumping into the rough waters of the ocean. You use the paddle to sustain balance as well as to steer.

Kyle Reinhardt, senior and President of the Outdoors Club is happy with the club’s absorption of the Surf Club and likes where Steger is going with it. “I think the paddle board lessons are a great way to start off the season,” Reinhardt said. “I’m excited that people enjoyed it and I think it will increase interest in the club as well as give us an opportunity to expand our activities,” he said.

Shadow PR Talks Sports

Zack Rosenberg, Director of Sponsorship for the Lakewood BlueClaws comes to Monmouth University Wednesday, February 8 at 3:00 pm to discuss with Shadow PR members about their PR skills and working in sports.

“As a sports communication minor, I believe it is a wonderful opportunity to have Mr. Rosenberg speak to the chapter. Hearing about sports PR from someone who is in the industry will be beneficial as I approach graduation” states Ali Nudo, one of Shadow PR’s account executives.

Rosenberg has been with the BlueClaws since 2006 when he started as a marketing manager. Then in 2009 he moved up to assistant director of sponsorship. Finally, in 2011 he became the director. Prior to his work with the BlueClaws he gained experiences at Octagon as an intern.

Rosenberg’s relationship with Shadow PR is new but he has already helped the firm get on their feet by connecting them to their first official client, the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce where he serves on the board of directors.

The PRSSA bi-monthly Speaker Series was instituted in 2009 to provide networking opportunities for public relations students and professionals.
