New parking acilities, recreationaland parade elds, stadium eld houseexpansion and the demolition o con-demned dormitories are just a ew o the projects the Student EnhancementFee has improved and continues towork on.Last spring, Tech students andthe Student Government Associationpassed a ee that will also help improveseveral campus acilities and providenew outdoor classroom space.The enhancement ee consists o arenewal o the “20 or 20” ee whichhelped build the newest acilities oncampus including the $12 millionMaxie Lambright Intramural SportsCenter expansion. Eighty-our percento students voted in avor o the $50quarterly ee.The top three projects underwayare the continuation o the alumniwalkway, demolition o the unuseddormitories and adding more greenspace to the campus.James King, vice president or stu-dent aairs, said these projects taketime to develop.“We have a contractor selected orthe alumni walkway which is almosta decade behind, and we have about20,000 names to put on it,” King said.“We should expect to have it startingup again around late all.”King said the demolitions are ex-pected to happen late spring, possiblysummer, depending on how the piec-es all together. Also, their are somesketches that show an idea o whatthat space will look like.SGA President Will Dearmon saidthis ee is crucial to maintain studentservices and expand the university andcampus oerings or all current and u-ture students.“From this one ee, Louisiana Techwill eventually rid itsel o the old, un-used dorms on west campus as well asa ew old living apartments on southcampus,” he said. “With the soon to be available space, Tech will add moregreen space that will serve the Bando Pride as a practice area as well asstudent club sports and intramural ac-tivities.”Dearmon said another major as-pect o the resolution was to dedicateunds to provide a more adequate and better unctioning athletic acility orall Tech athletes.The ee was passed while Clint Car-lisle was SGA president in 2012 andaccording to The Tech Talk, Carlislesaid he was inspired to know studentshelp pass ees that will not directly benet them during their time at Tech.Carlisle said that level o commitmentis one o the greatest things aboutTech students.A great deal o credit goes to Car-lisle who shared his vision with thestudents, got the ee on the ballots andworked tirelessly to gain its passage,said Reneau.Reneau was also quoted saying thiswas only the second time in 25 years

The average person is supposed to eatthree times a day and sleep six to eighthours every night, but that is not the caseor a college student.Since Ruston is a college town, latenight restaurants are welcomed by theoung adult community with open arms.Whataburger, coming to Ruston in2013, is open 24 hours every day.Caitlin Luccous, a sophomore biologymajor, said that a Whataburger is perector Ruston because students stay up lateevery night studying.When the body continues to work through the night, it needs to be reueledduring the night and now students, andthe Ruston community will have one moremidnight dining choice.“It is always excit-ing when something newcomes to town and con-sidering the size o Ruston,we do not get new addi-tions that oten,” Luccoussaid.Whataburger will bringanother ood choice andmore jobs to Ruston.Scott Terry, presidento the Ruston Lincoln-Chamber o Commerce, said that Whata-urger will help out the community inmore ways than one.“Being open 24 hours, they have to berunning at least three shits so it shouldprovide good part-time jobs or highschool and college students,” he said.A new business not only brings newobs but also adds more tax base to thecommunity, Terry said.“The city, the school district and thesheri’s oce will all receive sales taxrom it when it opens,” he said. “We can-not orget that it also gives citizens anotherdining choice when they get ready to goout to eat.”Whataburger will be located on anempty lot directly o o the interstate be-tween Logan’s Roadhouse and McKinneyHonda.The location suits Whataburger wellecause there are not many ast ood res-taurants directly o the interstate in Rus-ton, Terry said.However, Whataburger creates morecompetition or the numerous amount o urger joints located in Ruston.“The other burger joints will have tostep their game up,” Luccous said. “Theyare all good but they have not made manyimprovements or changes in the past ew years.”As a new restaurant, Whataburger will be very appealing to the community, shesaid.Dillion Miller, a sophomore second-ary mathematics education major, saidWhataburger will not only be a competitoror ast ood but or places like Log Cabinand Dawg House as well.“The ood is so good that it gives our burger restaurants major competition be-cause it tastes just as good as them and itis cheap like ast ood,” he said.The Whataburger company is still am-ily owned and operated keeping up the tra-ditions like service with a smile 24 hoursa day and burgers made to order with100 percent pure Ameri-can bee, according to theWhataburger website.“I like the favor o theirood best,” Luccous said.“It is denitely better thanBurger King or McDon-alds.”Whataburger corpora-tion serves burgers romover 700 units across thenation ,so why Ruston?“Ruston is a small college town, andeveryone knows that college studentslike cheap ood,” Luccous said. “Rustoncenters around its old traditions just likeWhataburger.”Terry said the company may take intoconsideration Lincoln Parish’s good econ-omy.“Lincoln Parish has ared well during bad economic times so with a decentpopulation base and economy, Ruston is agood location or the company to pursue,”he said.Construction on the Ruston Whata- burger will begin next year, but the con-tract has been signed and Whataburger isleasing the property according to the land-owner and amily.“From the talk and calls that I get, I amamazed at the amount o people truly ex-cited that Whataburger is coming to Rus-ton,” Terry said.Luccous said she is really excited to geta new addition to the awesome town o Ruston and or it to be a 24-hour place, itis going to be very benecial.

Boom.That is the sound thousands o students waited anxiously to hearater bomb threats were made atLouisiana State University, NorthDakota State University, Universityo Texas at Austin and Hiram Col-lege in Cleveland, Ohio, over thepast ew weeks.According to a New York Timesarticle Sept. 17, approximately100,000 people were evacuated be-tween the universities. The evacua-tions lasted between ve and sevenhours.“In all three cases, campus-wideevacuations were ordered and po-lice ocers conducted sweeps,” thearticle said about NDSU, UT Austinand Hiram College. “Students andaculty and sta members returnedhours later.”Threats at these universitieshave called attention to the pos-sibility o bomb threats closer tohome.Randall Hermes, Tech policechie, said Tech is ready in the eventa similar situation occurs.“We’ve had to evacuate an areaor a gas line beore,” he said. “Wehad to make sure the buildingswere evacuated and set out a pe-rimeter o a couple o blocks. We’d just have to do that on a much larg-er scale i a bomb threat occurred.”Vincent Bergeron, a senior elec-trical engineering major, said hedoes not oresee a bomb threathappening at Tech, but he’s pre-pared i it does.“I’d ollow directions they givethrough the Emergency Notica-tion System,” he said.Students can sign up or theemergency notication systemthrough their BOSS accounts.“We encourage students to reg-ister or the Emergency Notica-tion System,” Hermes said. “Wealso encourage them to registertheir parents. We send out ollow-Students gathered in ront o PrescottMemorial Library, Oct. 5 to listen to theirpeers read passages rom banned booksas a way to express their reedom.“Censorship ends in logical complete-ness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books nobody reads,”said Irish playwright George BernardShaw.For the third year in a row, Interna-tional English honor society Sigma TauDelta has hosted an annual event as away to celebrate Banned Book Week.Associate proessor o English andadviser, Dorothy Robbins, said it is peo-ple’s constitutional right to read what-ever they want.“Books get banned or reasons thatare not logical and it is very anti-intel-lectual,” she said. “As a lover o books, itdisturbs me.”While Tech’s campus has only been apart o this the past three years, The Na-tional Library Association has been host-ing this event nationwide or 30 yearsnow.“We take reedoms or granted,” Rob- bins said. “This event makes studentsaware that books are still banned inAmerica.”She said books were meant to be readand not edited or censored and does notpuriy the words in her classroom be-cause it destroys the author’s point.“Reading literary works out loud, Idon’t censor the bad words,” Robbins

I you are a person who likes jumping out o planes at highaltitudes, then there is only onesport or you — skydiving.The skydiving team ociallyrestarted two months ago ater being gone or over 30 years,said team vice president Benja-min Ford, a senior architecturemajor. An interest meeting orTech students who want to jointhe team was held last Tuesday.Each weekend the teamgoes to Skydive Louisiana, adrop zone in Gilliam, to train orcompetitions with their coachPaul Yeagley, a bomber pilot orthe U.S. Air Force.Ford said the team metYeagley at Skydive Louisianawhere he was an instructor.“We kind o designated himas our coach,” Ford said.Yeagley has done 1,394 jumps and said he wants toteach members skills theyneeded to know to becomegood competitive skydivers.“Your rst jump is just comeout and jump, and see i you likeit,” Yeagley said. “EverythingI’ve learned, everything I know,I’m willing to share with youguys,” Yeagley said.Yeagley and the team lead-ers told interested membersskydiving is like nothing elsethey could ever do.“From ghter [jets] to bomb-ers to skydiving, I can tell youhands down that it’s skydiving,”Yeagley said.Madison Dunigan, a wildliemanagement major, is the presi-dent o the team, and she gaveskydiving the same praise.“There are no words or it, you just have to try it and, andi you like it, come back,” Duni-gan said.Dunigan recently earned herA license or skydiving. Skydiv-ers get the license ater they jump at least 25 times. The li-cense allows them to skydiveunsupervised.Though Dunigan does nothave as many jumps as hercoach or the other team lead-ers, she and Yeagley assured theinterested members the numbero jumps was not important inskydiving.“It is an incredible sport andit doesn’t matter i you have 20 jumps or 1,000 jumps, there isalways something new to learnor master,” Dunigan said.But beore reaching the 25 jumps to get their A license,new members must start o with a ew practice jumps.“Your rst jump is done asa tandem,” Yeagley said. “It’s awelcome to the world kind o thing.”Tandem jumps are jumpsdone by new skydivers; theymust be harnessed to a coachas they jump out. Ater the tan-dem jumps, the new memberswill do jumps not harnessedto a coach but two coacheswill still be side by side o the jumper.And though some at themeeting were worried about theprice o skydiving, Yeagley as-sured them it was worth it.“For any Tech team mem- ber, your tandem will be $180,”Yeagley said. “That’s $40 lessthan any other place in thecountry.”Yeagley said the sport is notonly worth it nancially, but so-cially.The rst competition or theteam will be on Dec. 29 and ev-ery weekend they can the teamwill be practicing or it and try-ing to get new members pre-pared.“Skydiving is everything tome,” Dunigan said. “It has be-come a part o me, and I wantmore than anything to showother students and people howamazing it is and to pass every-thing I know down to them, justlike my coaches and especiallyPaul Yeagley have done or me.”

This is the third in a fve-part series on the unique experi- ence o Tech students who  participated in summer intern- ships. Each o the students let Ruston to get frsthand experi- ence in their respective felds.
In a competitive work eld,anything that will help move aresume to the top o the pile isno longer an option but more o a necessity i one has his or hereye set on success.For senior civil engineer ma- jor Isabela Lemos, hard work and dedication is nothing new,especially when it comes to hereducation and uture career.Living miles away rom herhometown in Vitória, Brazil,Lemos said she was drawn toTech with the original plan tostudy architecture, but like moststudents, changed her major tosomething more her style.“I went to school or two years back home in Brazil andthen I transerred here be-ore changing to engineering,”Lemos said. “I think engineeringis a broader eld with a lot moreopportunities ater I graduate.”Already amiliar with intern-ing rom her previous experi-ence in Brazil, Lemos appliedwith a amiliar company or aninternship in engineering.“Especially or engineer-ing, an internship is almost re-quired,” Lemos said. “Almost allmy riends who are in engineer-ing are doing internships beorethey graduate.”Though it is not part o therequired curriculum, Lemos ex-plained that an internship unc-tions as an understood part o the education.“Once you graduate youneed to have some experience,”Lemos said. “Otherwise nobodywants to hire you. It’s a toughmarket, competition is hard and you need to have somethingelse that sets you apart.”While studying in Brazil atUniversidade Federal do Es-pírito Santo, Lemos said sheinterned with a company calledEmbraer Aircrat Holding orsix months as an architecturestudent, and decided to onceagain intern with them in FortLauderdale, Fla., as an engineermajor at Tech.“It’s a Brazilian company, butit has oces all over the worldlike Europe, China, Singaporeand America,” Lemos said.She said that as an interna-tional student, she was requiredto take an internship class whereshe earned college credit.“I learned a lot but I think the main thing I learned is howa company works, how peopleact and real lie experience be-cause when you’re in college you have no clue what is goingon in the companies,” Lemossaid. “You just know the theo-ries, but once you go and getan internship you start learninghow it really works.”As ar as her degree, she saidher internship was less aboutcivil engineering specicallyand more about engineering inthe broad aspect.Duties kept her behind adesk or the most part, Lemosworked in ront o a computerand dealt with studies on air-lines and aircrat eciency,spreadsheets and presentations.The internship not only ex-panded her experience in theengineering eld, but incorpo-rated a business aspect into theinternship.Fellow classmate TannerMartin talked about how im-portant o a role an internshipplays in the early career o anengineer.Martin, a junior mechanicalengineering major, worked thesummer in 2011 interning orthe United States Army Corpso Engineering.He said a classroom teachesvarious theories but an intern-ship provides the opportunity topractice those theories.“During my internship, Iound that my materials andstatics class really helped,”Martin said.As Martin and Lemos dis-covered through interning, aclassroom cannot cover every-thing one may encounter on the job, but may help to prepare thestudent or how to handle reallie situations.“It was a challenge because Ihad people 40 and 50 years oldworking under me,” Martin said.“I think it would have helped i Ihad taken management classes[because] the internship taughtme a lot about working withpeople.”

One o the easiest waysto reach college students isthrough their stomachs, andas Tech expands as a campus,they have created new methodsto satisy students’ hunger.Robert Lubbert, districtmanager or Aramark at Tech,said dining services job is tomake sure students get the oodthey like.“I see or the uture possiblya Mexican restaurant similar toChipotle,” Lubbert said.In surveys done by diningservices, Tech students haverequested more Mexican oodrom dining services, and thiswould be the way to ulfll thatwant.There is also an attempt toadd a new item to the Chick-fl-A menu.“There is talk o serving sotserve ice cream at Chick-fl-A,”Lubbert said.“When you look at the ca-eteria, we have added the om-elets made to order [everyday],”Lubbert said. “That costs anextra person to come in to dothat, but we elt that it was nec-essary.”Lenard Gaulden is the manmaking the omelets many stu-dents like Ryan Joseph, a resh-man mechanical engineeringmajor, enjoy.“I love the omelet guy,” saidJoseph.Dining services has alsorought in Marisa Davis, a pas-try che, and some o her des-serts will be served in the cae.“She graduated rom theCulinary Institute o America,one o the best schools in thecountry,” Lubbert said. “Wewere very lucky or her to applyhere.”Davis’s treats will not onlye served in the cae, but alsoat Java City.“We are in the works o add-ing to Java City a wider varietyo baked items — cakes, piesand mufns,” Lubbert said.Lubert said bringing in Da-vis is one o the many ways tomake dining services more en-oyable or students.The F’real milkshake ma-chine is a new addition in thestudent center that not onlymakes milkshakes, but alsosmoothies and cappuccinos.“The new F’real machinecaters to both spectrums — theones who want to have the highcalorie items and those whowant the healthy smoothies,”Lubbert said.Daniel Borders, a reshmanelectrical engineering major,said he enjoys the new machine.“I think that it is pretty cooland quick too,” Borders said.And it is not too bad o a price.”The F’real smoothies arenot the only healthy additions;the caeteria salad bar has beenexpanded to give students morevariety in making a healthychoice, and Montegue’s nowhas resh bread made everyday,Lubbert said.Joseph said he enjoys thesandwiches in the cae or ahealthy choice.“The line gets long, but when you get a sandwich it’s healthi-er,” Joseph said.The student center also ea-tures a new sushi restaurantcalled Sushic.Lubbert said the group is better than the sushi restaurantrom last year.“The product not only tastes better, but there is a better vari-ety,” Lubbert said.Lenard said the goal o din-ing services is also to makeood cheap or students.“We like to know what theylike, and we encourage themto let us know what they like,”Lubbert said.Dining services is here orstudents, and i students havesomething they would like tosee then they should tell diningservices, Lubbert said.“We are trying to not makeitems that are boring or [stu-dents],” Lubbert said. “We con-tinuously try to strive or goodood on a daily basis.”

said. “I wouldn’t say the ‘-word’ at my dinnertable, but i I’m reading out loud I will.”Books can be banned or having religiousand socialist undertones as well as too muchoul language or provocative content.Books such as “The Great Gatsby,” “To Killa Mockingbird,” and “TheDiary o Anne Frank” aresome surprising titles thathave made the banned book list.“‘The Diary o AnneFrank’ was banned or beingtoo depressing,” Robbinssaid. “I guess she shouldhave talked about the happythings that happen when you are hiding in an atticrom Nazis.”Donald Kaczvinsky,dean o the College o Lib-eral Arts, said some o thegreatest works o literatureare banned simply becausethe author had an openmind or made someonequestion his or her values.“I read whatever I want,”he said. “I I don’t like it, I’llput it down.”In 1995, Penny Culliton,a high school teacher in rural New Hampshire,gained national attention when she came underfre ater a local newspaper had reported shewas involved with a lesbian and gay supportgroup and had passed out books depicting ho-mosexual characters.Culliton said she was trying to show studentsthat homosexuals are normal olks.According to an article in the Los AngelesTimes, students said there was nothing graphicin the books and most were halway throughwith the novels when they were orced to returnthe books to the school.Lydia Andreu, president o Sigma Tau Delta,said it is important to read banned books be-cause censoring books meanscensoring ideas.“Censoring books is not al-lowing people to grow intellec-tually,” she said. “We shouldn’tlet people decide what they canor cannot read. We should takethe initiative upon ourselves toread what we want.”Enjoying the readings wasAllison Hebert, a senior Eng-lish education major, who saidit was great seeing people get-ting together to enjoy literatureand fnding out new things.“Being in such a prominentarea on campus, I think it madepeople stop and appreciatewhat we were doing,” Hebertsaid. “We have to remind our-selves we have the ability tolead and express ourselves. It’sall part o our reedom.”Robbins said it is very important to keepreading alive.“People have died protecting our reedom,”she said. “This is one o our liberties that wehave to keep promoting.”
