Students jam-packed with musical skills and talents showcased their abilities at the Raider Programming Board (RPB)’s Coffeehouse series this Friday night in Campus Grounds.

The Coffeehouse series is one of four series that RPB puts on for Mount Union students. The event features students performing songs ranging from Broadway show tunes to original songs and also the occasional poem or skit.

“It’s become a run-away success,” said RPB advisor Lindsey Laret. “There are typically 75-100 people who come to watch the performances.” Although Laret expected low attendance this week, due to the Homeless in the Quad event, the numbers still impressed.

Sophomore Ann Summers performed her first song with Sophomore Angela Romeo. “I was nervous before I went on,” said Summers, “but while I was playing I was calm.”

Romeo, who is a seasoned veteran when it comes to performing, has been singing at Coffeehouse since her freshman year. “I started playing at the second Coffeehouse of my freshman year, and I’ve only missed two performances,” said Romeo. “I’m excited to perform with Ann. It’s opening her to a new world.”

RPB is also known to team up with other organizations on campus, such as Calliope, the student run literary and arts magazine for Mount Union. When the two organizations teamed up last spring, the coffeehouse event featured poetry readings along with musical performances.

“Coffeehouse is a lot of fun,” said Lauren Klonowski. “It’s only the second one I’ve gone to, but I’m coming to more.”

“I like it. There’s a lot of variety,” added Julie Cowley. “There’s punk rock and show tunes. You can’t find that anywhere else.”

Women Suffrage

Posted on 02 October 2013 by Chad Bosel

Do you think women should be allowed to vote? The students at Mount Union seem to think not. The female students, specifically.

Last week, I walked around outside during the lunch hour and asked students to “Sign my petition to help end women’s suffrage!” If you do not know what suffrage is, you are not alone. Webster’s online dictionary defines suffrage as the right to vote in an election. I got about 20 signatures in about 20 minutes from 3 guys and 17 girls; 2 of which were Raider Guides.

The top of the petition read in size 18 font, “We, the undersigned, petition for an end to Women’s Suffrage. It has been going on for too long and we will not stand for it. By signing this, we hope to help bring justice to our unfair system and give women everywhere what they deserve.”

Now I know that these girls do not really want to give up their right to vote, at least I hope, but it goes to show how passive we are. I asked these students to go out of their way and stop to sign something, and barely any actually read the three sentences at the top. The best part might have been what they said though.

The first girl I got to sign said to her friend, “I didn’t even know there was still suffrage here.”

Two more girls were in a hurry to get to their class in Chapman Hall, but one was nice and urged her friend to sign, “We’re girls we should sign it.”

The best has to go to the three girls by the echo spot. The first said loudly, “(Explicit) yea we’ll sign it!”

She was the first to sign. Then the third one teased the first one that she did not even know what women’s suffrage is…as she was signing.

The point here is that we should pay more attention to what we do and especially what we sign. I only had two people ask me to repeat myself, and then they looked at me funny. Neither signed. Ironically, they were both guys.

Perhaps we should all read more too. At least in my own personal experience, all the very intelligent people I know read a lot, and all of the not so intelligent people watch a lot of T.V. Maybe we are all so used to multitasking that we never really give things our full attention.

Regardless, whether it is in class, on the quad, or at lunch, we should not just go along with things. Slow down and think sometimes, and ask questions. Then no one will write in the school newspaper about how you petitioned to get rid of your voting rights. Mark Twain said it best when he said, “The person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.”

Representatives of the See The Ability Not The Disability (S.T.A.N.D) organization held their first meeting of the fall semester on Thursday September 19. President of S.T.A.N.D. Stephen Yanovich kicked off the meeting in the Tolerton-Hood building and introduced their featured guest, the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA), the Stark area bus system.

At the meeting, SARTA held an informational session about their bus program. According to, SARTA provides bus transportation for 33 routes in Stark County: Alliance, Canton, Hartville, Jackson Township, Louisville, Massillon, North Canton, and Uniontown. In addition, SARTA provides 2.6 million rides a year in Stark County.

Advisor for the S.T.A.N.D. organization Karen Saracusa said, “International students do not have cars and have to rely on others for transportation to simple places like Wal-Mart or bigger places when they need to travel home to get to different airports whether its the Akron/Canton or the Cleveland airport.”

Saracusa also explained that SARTA “could be beneficial to many people on campus to know where places the bus could take them to.”

The SARTA bus has a route that runs up and down the main streets around Mount Union and looks to not just benefit the international students but all students as well.

Freshman Willie Swift says he anticipates using SARTA once a month or for fall break.

At the end of the presentation, to show the audience what SARTA has to offer, SARTA representatives gave out free 31-day bus passes.

The S.T.A.N.D.’s main goal is to offer education for all. It looks to serve the community through education on disabilities and rights.

Yanowich said, “The purpose of S.T.A.N.D. shall be to bring University of Mount Union students together to raise awareness, to educate the campus community, and to promote an inclusive environment for all.”

Head of public relations for S.T.A.N.D. Rachael Hagey said, “we’ve recently got a Facebook page and you could add us as a friend.”

Every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. in the Alumni Room the organization holds its weekly meetings about these topics and looks to conduct a presentation about service animals later in the year.

Yanovich said, “Our goal is to have one educational program a month.”

Giving students CHOICES

Posted on 25 September 2013 by Dynamo Staff

CHOICES (Choosing Healthy Options In Celebration of Educational Success) is a social group aimed towards educating the community about safe decisions regarding sex, drinking and academics. The group works in collaboration with other organizations on campus to hold events that inform the public.

Events coming up in October include: “Don’t Drink and Drive Go Karts,” “Mr. UMU,” “Making Strides against Breast Cancer Walk” and “Sober Halloween” party. Towards the end of the academic semester, in December, events such as “De-Stress Fest” and the Christmas festival will take place.

Major events that CHOICES has held in the past include “De-Stress Fest,” “Spring Break Pack” and “Sober Halloween.”

“I want to educate the community about issues our group covers,” said president of CHOICES Katie Kukucka.

According to Kukucka, “De-Stress Fest” is a way for students to relax before finals. The group gives out condoms, Chap Stick and wristlets during the “Spring Break Pack” event, to help keep students safe while on vacation. “Sober Halloween” is a party for people who want to have sober fun during the weekend.

Kukucka said, “I want the group to come together as friends and have fun.”

Meetings later in the semester include trips to Silver Park to makes s’mores and a bonfire, a movie night with popcorn to get to know others, and bonding during the Homecoming parade.

When asked what the members hope to gain from being involved in CHOICES, freshman Emma Creech said, “I am a public health major and want to gain experience with public health issues.”

Kayla Oroni, also a freshman, said she also wanted to gain experience in her field of study.

Academic advisor for CHOICES Kellen Weber said, “Students are faced with making personal decisions about health and safety every day. CHOICES believes that developing positive decision-making skills impacts student life and prepares students to enter the real world and the greater community to promote healthy and safe lifestyles.”

The meeting held this past Monday September 15 discussed important information about upcoming events. The first event, “Mock-tails” is where each organization makes a non-alcoholic drink of their choice. Themes based on The Great Gatsby, tropical flavors and a fiesta party were mentioned. Next, the “Sober Halloween” party with the Gay Straight Alliance was determined to be held on October 31 in the basement of Bracy. This party will include a costume contest, bobbing for apples, board games and pizza. Following the Halloween party is the “Breast Cancer Walk,” on October 27, in which members can tie-dye shirts with pink dye. Fundraising for this event will take place outside of the cafeteria October 14and 21.

CHOICES meetings are held in the West Room of HPCC at 4:15 p.m. for the following Mondays in the academic semester: October 21, October 28, November 4, November 11, November 18, November 25 (at 9 p.m.), and December 2.

Mount Union Love Story

Posted on 25 September 2013 by Harley Marsh

On Saturday September 21, alumni Ashley Smith and Adam Karlen returned to Mount Union to exchange vows in Dewald Chapel.

The two initially met through a mutual while Karlen was a freshman at Mount Union and Smith was a senior in high school. However, they reconnected the following year when they were both members of Alpha Phi Omega, Mount’s service fraternity. For Smith’s first semester, the two were merely friends, but as the year progressed they began to fall in love. They officially started dating on March 30, 2010 during Smith’s second semester at Mount.

Two years later, Karlen proposed to Smith on Mount’s infamous kissing bridge for their anniversary on March 30, 2012. The tradition remains, that a couple who kisses on the kissing bridge at the lakes is destined to be married.

After Karlen graduated in 2011, he stayed in Alliance to be with his fiancé. When Smith graduated in the fall of 2012, the two moved and started their lives together. They now live in Marietta, Ohio where Smith works for Congressman Bill Johnson and Karlen works for Kelly Services as a staffing supervisor.

They decided holding the ceremony at Mount Union would be the most sentimental for them.

Smith said, “Mount is just our whole relationship; where we met, where we grew up together, where we fell in love. It has so much history for us.”

The bridal party was full of Mount alumni. Smith’s bride’s maids, adorned in short purple dresses, were Amanda Mercer, Ashley Brown, Kelly Lamiell, Megan McDonough, and Heidi Siciliano. Karlen’s groomsmen were Taylor McIntyre, Kevin Marcinick, Dan Humphrey, Josh Jones, and Joe Giuliano.

Alumn Ida Gorman played piano for the ceremony and Chaplain Martha Cashburless united the two in holy matrimony. As the couple exchanged their vows they wept softly and Karlen wiped his wife’s tears with a tissue. After the ceremony, family and friends traveled to La Pizzaria in Canton for the reception.

Zombies Vs. Humans: A Success on Campus

Posted on 21 September 2013 by Taylor Jarvis

By: Katey May

Zombies and humans were running rampant on Mount Union’s campus Wednesday night as part of the Raider Programming Board’s Midweek Madness.

The event, Zombies vs. Humans, was held campus-wide as a scavenger hunt. According to Kinsey Douglass, the event organizer, there were 45 students who took part in the event.  The humans were let loose on campus to search for various items needed for survival during a zombie apocalypse.

Students who ran wildly across campus to collect blankets and first aid kits were given hints to find other items through RPB’s Twitter, using the hashtag #UMUndead, according to Andrea Santos, a member of RPB.

The humans were marked with a bandana and one popsicle stick on their forearm. Their objective was to collect as many objects as possible and avoid the zombies to remain a human. The zombies placed the bandanas on their heads, and their objective was to tag the humans and collect their popsicle sticks. When a human was tagged they had to become a zombie.

The course for the scavenger hunt stretched from South Rockhill Avenue to South Union Avenue and from West State Street to West Simpson Street. The items, scattered throughout the square of campus, were tagged with blue duct tape. Each object was worth a certain amount of points, according to Santos. The students returned to Campus Grounds at 10 p.m. with all of their items and popsicle sticks to be counted. The human who returned with the most objects, and the zombie who returned with the most popsicle sticks won a cash prize of $50.

The humans were favored to collect the most points in total. “The humans will win because there are so many of us,” said Andrew Connor, a freshman at Mount Union. Other students believed the humans would win from athletic skills alone. In contrast, Lindsey Laret, staff advisor for RPB, had faith in the zombies.

The idea for this event came from RPB after seeing it on other college campuses. According to Douglass, larger universities such as Ohio State University and Case Western Reserve hold similar events to Zombies vs. Humans but on a much larger scale.

When thinking of events for Midweek Madness, members of RPB thought Mount Union students would enjoy Zombies vs. Humans. “It seems to be a hit on other campuses, we thought it might work here,” said Laret.

The Five C

Posted on 20 September 2013 by Hannah Shaffer

By: Kyle Dreger

Some thoughts on the new iPhone 5C, and why it’s going to be both my next iPhone and the most popular version Apple’s ever sold:

One of my favorite iPhones to hold was the iPhone 3GS. In my opinion, it was one of the best-feeling phones Apple ever made. It’s not that I don’t appreciate the luxurious feel ushered in with the iPhone 4, I do. But the 3GS felt like, on an ideological level, the everyman’s phone. Something simple, sturdy and able to take a little abuse while still looking great.

(The only phones I’ve played with recently which gave me that feeling were the Nokia Lumias; sleek, while still maintaining that functional and durable design. I recommend Andrew Kim’s review of the Nokia Lumia 920 if you’ve never seen what the Lumias look like)

The iPhone 5C is a return to that idea. Although I have yet to examine the build quality in person, several people have been impressed. David Pierce for The Verge stated, “If you’re going to make a plastic phone, though, this is how to do it. From the cohesive shell to the smooth and glossy back (which did pick up a fair number of fingerprints) the device feels far better than Samsung’s or LG’s plastic options.”

Blogger John Gruber in “Thoughts and Observations” stated, “Yes, it’s plastic, but there’s nothing cheap about it. It has a far better fit and finish, and feels way better in your hand, than Apple’s previous foray into plastic iPhones, the 3G and 3GS. The 5C feels like a premium product.”

Although I don’t dislike the color choices available, I plan on getting the white variant — possibly with a green (Go Sounders!) case. At the end of the day, I like my gear to be durable, efficient, and simple. I feel the iPhone 5C will fit nicely into that culture.

WOC Portfolio Requirements

Posted on 20 September 2013 by Taylor Jarvis

WOC Portfolio Meeting

By: Ashleigh Carney

The University of Mount Union has begun integrating a new general education system. Tuesday, September 17, an informational session was held in Chapman Hall for all sophomores and transfer students, to learn about the necessary requirements for their second year Written and Oral Communication (WOC) Portfolio.

With the uncertainty that comes along with any new program, information sessions prove to be helpful. In addition to going over a PowerPoint presentation, there were supplemental handouts that outlined the rubrics that professors will use to judge whether a student passes the proficiency level in both the writing and oral parts of the WOC Portfolio.

In regards to the importance of attending the information session, WOC Director Dr. Gwen Gray Schwartz said, “Seeing a person [give information in person] relieves fear and helps to educate students about the specifics of the requirements.” Students may learn more about the WOC Portfolio during information sessions, instead of individually seeking information on the Mount Union website.

The WOC Portfolio is required of all second year students and transfer students. The Portfolio needs to be submitted by 4 p.m. on the last day of finals in May. The portfolio needs to include two pieces of written work, two videotaped oral presentations, a cover letter, a statement of authenticity and a consent form.

While two pieces of work may come from the same Integrative Core class, one must be written and the other must be oral.

In order to be considered ‘proficient’ in the respective sections, a student must earn a score of two out of four from two professors, which translates into a total score of at least a four. Scores can go all the way up to a combined number of eight. If the minimum scores are not achieved, starting in the fall, two credit revision classes will be offered every semester, helping in both the areas of writing and oral communication.

Although the Integrative Core system is allowing students to take fewer required classes, there is a specific reason for this change in curriculum.  Dr. Schwartz said, “This system asks students to develop their communication abilities over four years, rather than just completing the required classes in the first two years and being done.”

In regards to seeing a distinct change in student’s performances, Dr. Kathleen Piker-King, Foundations course professor for the Integrative Core, stated, “We don’t have research yet to see if there is a change [since the program is new], but we are looking into ways to compare the old general education system and the Integrative Core.”

Attending an information session would be beneficial to any of the affected students, expanding their understanding of the requirements for the WOC Portfolio.

Sophomore Brittany Piatt said, “After attending it, I felt like I had a better understanding about what I needed to do before the end of my sophomore year and I didn’t feel as stressed about the Portfolio.”

The third set of sessions finish this Thursday, but there will be more throughout the rest of the semester. Future dates will be posted in Ennouncements.

The Technology Accelerator Alliance by Shane Murphy

Posted on 20 September 2013 by Taylor Jarvis

High ceilings, natural light, comfortable arm chairs, friendly-enthusiastic faces, and free pizza. To conceive their ideas, the Open Office transforms the Northern Reading Room of KHIC into a space for free flowing thoughts; a platform for brainstorming, bursting with exciting fresh ideas.

Meetings are held every Thursday night between 6 and 8 p.m. David Mitchell, Brad Myers and Scott Love led the meeting this past week. Myers, a confident speaker, spoke first about the advantages of working for yourself. Myers wants the meetings to become a type of “Think Tank” for new, big, and exciting ideas. “That’s what the big companies are doing,” stated Brad.

Myers shared that his goal for the meetings is to establish a completely student-run business, with the students’ academic status reflecting their level of involvement, or responsibility, within the structure of the business: first year students with less involvement and seniors with more. The intention is to give students real experience of making money for themselves and to get students to think about options outside of working under a corporation.

Each meeting a new speaker will share their individual experience in entrepreneurship. Recently, Love explained how, after years of working far too many hours at a well-paid job, he found himself overworked and unsatisfied. Love is now developing his ambitious idea of bringing the Target Shooting industry out of the “1960s” by marrying it with new technology.

From meeting, Myers wants students to realize their dreams of having six-figure jobs is highly unlikely unless they start thinking about the unlimited potential of entrepreneurship.

The Open Office has also teamed up with Technology Accelerator Alliance (TA2) as they look for ideas to expand into up and coming businesses.
