The School of Art’s AnnualStudent Show is an exhibitionof Tech students’ art. Lastingfor the duration of a month, itallows the community to viewand purchase local piecesfrom up-and-coming art stu-dents.
“Jurying was dicult,”Nunez said. “Everyone whoentered was very talented,and there just weren’t enoughawards.”Johnathan Courter, a sopho-more photography major, re-ceived the best in photographyaward.He said he was really anx-ious waiting or the results.“It’s exciting. I don’t evenknow how to explain it,” hesaid. “It’s like a weight o myshoulders.”Les Guice, vice presidento research and development,said he is proud o the art stu-dents and the art department ingeneral.“This aculty is as good asI’ve ever seen,” said Guice, whowill become Tech president atJuly. “They’re just so strong andso passionate.

Temperatures are rising as spring-time creeps its way onto campus.As the seasons change, so do thehabits o Tech students.More o them are outside poundingthe pavement to work o winter weightgained during the holidays.Emma Paille said she is just startingto run again because she believes it is agreat way to get t and eel good aboutit.“You eel better ater a run, relieved,like you’ve accomplished something,”said Paille, a reshman agriculture edu-cation major.While some like to work out alone,Paille enjoys the company o a riend.“Running with someone motivates you more,” she said. “You can encour-age each other.”Paille said she started by running oneto three miles every other day in the a-ternoon or evening.She said she also preers to do sooutside.“I don’t like running on a treadmill,”she said. “You’re not going anywhere,and I like scenery.”On the days she does not run, Paillesaid she preers to work out her arms us-ing ree weights.Not everyone waited or the weatherto warm up to start getting back intoshape.Alex Broussard, a sophomore ac-counting major, said she has been work-ing out or two months and does notmind running in the cold at all.“I’m trying to get in shape or a skitrip,” Broussard said. “My dad lives inColorado, and i you’re not in shapewhen you ski, you can get your buttkicked.”Broussard said it does not take longto notice a change in one’s perormanceand endurance.“I started on the track where I wouldrun one straight and then walk three, butnow I can run three straight and I’ll onlywalk one,” she said.While it is popular to run the track at Garland Gregory Hideaway Park,Broussard said she preers to cross thepond and run in the woods.“It’s so peaceul,” she said. “I’ll takemy ear buds out and enjoy the peaceulsilence.”Another way to shed unwantedweight is in the kitchen, said SusanHughes, a nutrition proessor at Tech.She said the best advice or thosewith limited workout time is to cut back on energy-dense, low-nutrient oods.“These oods are sometimes called‘empty’ calories,” she said. “Meaningthat they supply lots o energy, but veryew nutrients.”Some easy “empty” calories to cutrom one’s diet include sugar-sweetened beverages.Instead, Hughes advises active indi-viduals to drink water.For those who want to consumeoods to boost their athletic perormanc-es, they need to ocus on the consump-tion o lean proteins and carbohydrates.“High-at oods tend to delay the pas-sage o ood rom the stomach,” Hughessaid. “Which can be very unpleasant orsomeone who is trying to participate inan athletic event.”The Academy o Nutrition and Di-etetics website, eatright.org, recom-mends athletes to consume smallermeals more requently.Some post-workout snacks the Acad-emy recommends or reueling includea combination o proteins and carbo-hydrates, like peanut butter on a tortillaand apple slices.Veteran runners like Broussard un-derstand to the diculty o beginning aworkout routine and how many get dis-couraged easily.“Just do it,” is her advice or peoplewith that mentality.She said once a person gets into theroutine o running, it becomes secondnature and does not have to be a timeconsuming activity.“Just remember,” Broussard said,“one hour o running is only our per-cent o your day.”
