Cottage residents promotegirls’ education worldwide
Students living in Catherine Cottage are participating in the year of service program by raising money and awareness for girls’ education. “The year of service is a Residence Life program,” Olivia Paige, a resident of Catherine Cottage, said. Paige said the students who live in the cottages develop a service  project that they carry out through the year.“[The cottage residents] come up with a service project that they want to complete for that year, and they work on that through the year,” Paige said.The residents of Catherine Cottage have chosen to focus their service project on girls’ education in developing countries.The residents said they support the organization Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation which focuses on empowering girls and helping them receive an education.Sophomore Mackenzie Ross, another resident of Catherine Cottage, said the residents chose to sponsor Girl Up because of their familiarity with the organization.“We knew about it. It was good to have an organization we were familiar with when we were starting a completely new process,” Ross said.Paige said the goal of the project is to raise money and awareness for the cause while educating others in the Rome and Berry communities.“Our goal is to raise $255, which would sponsor three girls through the  program,” Paige said. “Another goal is to just educate as many people as we can in the Rome community and on Berry’s campus about the issue of education and the lack thereof in developing countries.”

Volleyball wins SAA championship
Vikes play Friday in NCAA D-III tournament
For the second year in the existence of the Southern Athletic Association (SAA), the Lady Vikings entered the SAA Volleyball Championships as regular season conference champions and
nished the tournament as SAA champions.
By defeating the Hendrix College Lady Warriors on Sunday 3-2, The Lady Vikings Volleyball team won their second straight SAA
championship, and qualied for the NCAA
Division-III Championships.
The Lady Vikings will play in the rst round
of the Atlanta Regional bracket of the NCAA Division-III Championsips on Friday at 5:30  p.m. where they will face the Washington & Lee University Lady Generals (28-6).“It is incredible for this team to have accomplished a ‘two-peat,’” senior setter Stephanie Quinn said. “The best part about it is getting to share it with the majority of the same girls from last year.”Quinn led the team with 44 out of the Lady Vikings’ 28 total assists during the championship match. Last season, Quinn was named tournament MVP following a 40-assist game on the Lady Viking’s way to defeating the Millsaps College Majors 3-1 (in the Inaugural SAA Volleyball Championships).Sophomore middle blocker Katie O’Rourke tallied 15 kills and eight blocks for the Lady Vikings and was named this years’ tournament MVP.“Katie is a hard worker,” McCathren said. “Every day at practice and in games she is fully engaged. What she really brings to the team, aside from her awesome hitting ability, is her energy. And with the energy she brings some of the best hitting ability on the team.”Freshman outside hitter Mary-Michael McCathren said one of the team’s main focuses for this season was to improve daily, regardless of the outcome of the games.

Girl Up
Catherine Cottage’s rst event was a showing of the lm “Girl Rising” on Nov. 6. “Girl Rising” tells the stories of nine girls around the world and their struggles to receive an education.“We have only done one event thus far, ‘Girl Rising’, which was the lm, and we took donations at that [from] anyone who was willing to give,” Ross said. “We had a table in Krannert to promote the movie, and we had a donation help out for that too.”Ross said the lm was chosen for several reasons, including its connection to the cause and its helpfulness for Berry students.“It just seemed like the perfect opportunity, to help  people in Berry, educate them, get our name out there, get the project out and help Berry students in the process,” Ross said.The lm screening was co-sponsored by several other campus organizations including Residence Life, the Student Activities Ofce, Berry College Volunteer Services, KCAB, the Women’s and Gender Studies  program and EMPOWER.Paige said there were approximately 120 people at the showing of the lm.Ross said Catherine Cottage is also planning to  participate in other events to collect more donations for the cause.“Nov. 23, we will be co-sponsoring Miss Berry with KCAB,” Ross said. “Half of the proceeds from Miss Berry will go to Girl Up.”Paige said that their cause is one that goes unknown to most—making it important to address.“A lot of people don’t know that a lot of girls aren’t able to go to school worldwide,” Paige said.Both Paige and Ross agree that this is a project that they hope to carry on into next year.
Panel explores idea of beauty
The Cultural Perceptions of Beauty Panel, held on Nov. 12, discussed the denition of beauty according to modern magazines and music videos. The panel was sponsored by EMPOWER and the women’s and gender studies program to “help young women have a healthy body image,” senior Hannah Henderson,  president of EMPOWER, said. The topics discussed included the perceptions of beauty from the eyes of African-American women, Latina women and white women, the effects of Photoshop and the  pressure to get plastic surgery.First, junior Sara Gheesling  presented examples of how many magazines seem to be encouraging individuality and embracing your  body when that is not really the case. One of the examples used was a page from Seventeen magazine that was meant to be a fashion guide for a curvy woman. At rst glance one might think this is simply trying to help curvy women embrace their  bodies with “the right clothes,”  but many of the clothes actually minimized and hid the curvy woman’s body. “It is an asset to these companies to seek out a girl who feels remotely  poor about herself,” Gheesling said. “All of that is going to help...tie in revenue, and that’s all they’re really thinking about.” Henderson then discussed many magazines geared toward Latina and African-American women. These magazines have many of the same negative effects on women’s  body image through emphasizing what African-American and Latina women should look like according to stereotypes. Henderson showed multiple magazine covers, advertisements and photos where black women’s skin tones had been considerably lightened. This is because of a major pressure for black women to  be light-skinned to match a white denition of beauty. “Especially looking at rap music videos, black women are so sexualized,” Henderson said. “The emphasis is on very large breasts and very large butt. Even in real life  black women tend to be more curvy  but its just hyper-sexualized in the media.”Senior Lauren Eason took over the discussion and revealed the realities of Photoshop by showing a video sponsored by Dove that is a high-speed Photoshop process. The woman in the video looks nothing like the editors’ nished product. Another important topic Eason covered was the huge pressure for women to surgically enhance themselves. Eason countered this  by explaining the dangers of many of these surgeries and why they are unnecessary for maintaining a healthy body image. Just like pictures, video can also  be edited to enhance the looks of whomever may be featured, and this also affects women. Senior Katie Chernicky used stills from the three most viewed music videos of the month of October as examples. Each music video had images where women were sexualized and clearly edited or enhanced.

Construction of the football stadium, which has been named Valhalla, and the welcome center will not begin until all of the funds are raised.“The stadium will be built directly across the Cage parking lot in what is now a wooded area,” Brian Erb, vice president for
nance, said.
It will take roughly nine months
to nish the stadium. The design
will be unique to Berry and the  preferences of its students. “The stadium is currently being designed to accommodate 1,800  bleacher seats in addition to the approximate 750 capacity...on the
far side of the eld which will allow
for people to bring blankets and chairs and create their own space to cheer the team on,” Erb said.Berry College President Stephen R. Briggs said there are current  plans to expand seating capacity of the stadium. This decision was made after consideration of attendance for this season’s football games.Briggs said about half the funds needed to build the stadium have already been raised. In addition to the unique design, the stadium will have many purposes. It will not only accommodate football but track and lacrosse as well. The space will also be able to host concerts and other outdoor events. The Shipyard football tailgate will be located in the Cage  parking lot for easy access to the stadium. There are no current plans to
 build additional parking. Overow
will have to park in different lots on campus.Along with the new stadium, there will be a new welcome center  built 100 yards from the gatehouse. The current gatehouse has been serving Berry since the 1960s. One half of the new building will accommodate the dispatch duties and security operations, and the other half will serve as the actual welcome area. “The new center will be much  better equipped to check in guests to the college 24 hours a day, instead of just after normal business hours,” Bobby Abrams, chief of campus police, said. This will help make sure our campus is safe at all hours of the day and guests are appropriately directed to wherever they may need to go on campus. The location of the new gatehouse is currently
marked with small white ags on
the side of the road. Erb said that the new welcome center will “help our campus safety
ofce, and others, such as perhaps
our admissions staff at certain times, to provide better customer service in a more modern facility.”
