For the remainder of the semester the Berry Beanr’y and Java City will be offering a trial 25 cents discount to all pa-trons who bring a Berry College mug when they purchasea beverage.The Berry College Green Team and the 2010-2011 Soph-
omore class ofcers have partnered with Aramark to make
this discount a reality.
According to senior Keiko Stobeaus, the SustainabilityProgram Coordinator for the Green Team, this discount
will apply to all beverages at either establishment. Sto- beaus also said that the main reason for the discount is to
try to reduce waste, not just to reuse.
“Every time you use your reusable mug you will be sav-
ing a cup, sleeve, and a lid from going into the landll andyou should be rewarded for that,” Stobaeus said.Sophomore class president Ashleigh Day said the ideawas rst presented last school year by sophomore Harri
-son Earp.There are some rules that are attached to the discount.The mugs are to be clean and the lid must be removed be-
fore it is handed to the barista. Also, when purchasing adrink you must choose a size, regardless of how big yourreusable container might be. If you pay for a tall coffee,
you will get the amount that would go into a tall coffee cup
even if your container happens to be a venti size.
The sophomore class will begin selling reasonably
priced, stainless steel Berry College travel mugs that can
 be used to get the discount. Stobeaus said the effort of the
sophomore class is not to fundraise, but to serve the Berry
“Harrison Earp was in charge of getting the mugs or
dered and getting the approval to use the Berry logo,” Day
Stobaeus said she is condent that this discount will
 be successful not only because of the efforts of the Green
Team, but also because of the Berry College community.“I already feel that people you know have started to goonto the greener side of things and I feel like if there is a re
ward, an incentive, the 25 cents discount, which is a fairlygood discount for a couple dollar drink,” Stobaeus said. “Ifeel like it is going to be a popular thing and that peoplewill be involved with it as long as we advertise it well.”Students say they look forward to being able to use the
“I denitely think it’s more environmental friendly,” se
nior Lesley Mobley said. “However, it might slow down theline since the cups are going to have to be looked over.”

Chick-fl-A decision draws scrutiny upon Winshape
KElly dicKErson
Deputy News Editor
A chicken sandwich, fries and lemon
ade aren’t the only items that Chick-l-A is
serving up.
The actions of Chick-l-A have launched
the company into the political debate of gaymarriage whether it wanted to get involvedor not. The recent events have caused the
organizations Chick-l-A is afliated withto also come under scrutiny, including Win
Shape, an openly Christian organization.Recently, President of Chick-l-A DanCathy defended a Pennsylvania Chick-l-A branch’s decision to donate food to a
marriage seminar hosted by PennsylvaniaFamily Institute amidst criticisms from gayrights groups.
In an article from the Christian Post,Cathy stated, “Operators simply agreed to
provide sandwiches and brownies for the
events as many Chick-l-A franchises havedone over the years for community events, businesses and civic groups.”Many concluded that Chick-l-A was
supporting the marriage beliefs of thePennsylvania Family Institute because the
yer advertising for the event stated thatChick-l-A was sponsoring the event.
The President of Pennsylvania FamilyInstitute Michael Geer reported the word-
ing of the yer was not accurate.Geer told the Christian Post “Chick-l-A was not sponsoring the event, a two
day conference aimed at strengthening
marriages.”Cathy further conrmed this by saying
that the decision to donate food does not
mean that Chick-l-A is sponsoring the“Art of Marriage” seminar.
In a video posted on the company’s fan
page on Facebook Cathy said, “Let me beclear. Chick-l-A serves all people, and
values all people. Providing food to theseevents or any event is not an endorsement
of the mission, political stance, or motivesof this or any other organization. Any sug
gestion otherwise is just inaccurate.”
This has had an impact on the student
 body of Berry, particularly those in the Win
-Shape program and members of gay rights
groups on campus like LISTEN. Students at
some universities have even tried to have
Chick-l-A removed from campuses, suchas Western Illinois University.The WinShape Foundation on Berry’s
campus has hosted several marriage semi-
nars and speakers that clearly promote only
heterosexual marriage.
In response to the controversy, sev
-eral students have published their opin-
ions about Chick-l-A and the WinShape
Viking Fusion online editor senior JamesClarke and Campus Carrier AssistantOpinions Editor sophomore Bonny Harper
have both written opinion pieces regarding
WinShape and are accessible at vikingfu
Cathy told the Atlanta Journal Constitu
tion that Chick-l-A operates its business
on Biblical principles but “is not a Christian
company.” Cathy said it’s a nuanced dis
tinction, and many customers may miss it.However, this balancing act of religionand business that Chick-l-A is attempting
has many critics.
In the Atlanta Journal Constitution story“At Chick-l-A, biblical principles shape business” controversial company policiesare discussed: “Chick-l-A’s nondiscrimi
-nation policy covers sexual orientationwhere state laws require the company
to do so, but not elsewhere,” a companyspokesman said. Likewise, Chick-l-A of 
fers domestic partner health benets onlyin places that mandate such coverage. Ac
cording to the gay rights organization Hu
man Rights Campaign, 89 percent of the
Fortune 500 mention sexual orientation in
their non-discrimination policies, and 57
percent offer domestic partner health in-
surance on a nationwide basis.”The company’s WinShape Foundation,which has trained hundreds of couples,
does not bar gay couples from its marriage
retreats or training, Cathy said. But he
added that the curriculum is designed forheterosexual couples.

More college freshmen are reporting lower levels of emotional health than ever before.In a UCLA Higher Education Research Institute surveyof 200,000 full-time incoming students at four-year col-leges, the percentage that rated themselves “below aver-age” in emotional health has risen.The New York Times reported that freshmen mentalhealth was at the lowest it’s been in 25 years.This trend is also showing among Berry students.Director of the Counseling Center Marshall Jenkins saidthe amount of students visiting the Counseling Center hasincreased over the years, not only freshmen. However,freshmen consistently have the largest representation inthose numbers.“Last year almost one-third of the students that visitedwere freshmen,” Jenkins said. Jenkins said it’s not surprising that the largest group iscomposed of freshmen.“Incoming students are probably in the middle of themost major life transition they’ve experienced so far,” Jen-kins said. “Some don’t have practice dealing with such a big change.”
Most students agree that they had some difculty tran
-sitioning into college life.
“Leaving family was difcult, and although I am anoutgoing and friendly person, it was a struggle to gureout where I would t in at Berry,” Freshmen Julie Zimmer
-man said.
Sophomore Ann Ryden reected on her experience with
the transition last year.“I tried to stay positive and keep myself busy,” Rydensaid. “I didn’t even get homesick enough to go home beforeThanksgiving.” Jenkins said living with a roommate and experiencing
a less structured academic routine for the rst time prob
ably contributes to the difculty freshmen have adjusting
to college life. Jenkins said many freshmen begin questioning basicvalues and lifestyle choices in college. This indecision andconfusion can raise a student’s stress level. Jenkins said some reasons for therecent increase could include theeconomy, the growing lack of spiri-tuality in American society, and theconstant distraction students expe-rience through technology.“The economy is obviously a bigfactor because of the strain it puts
on families and how much it inu
-ences a student’s college experience and goals,” Jenkinssaid.Religion can also be a big stressor for incoming collegestudents. Students are exposed to more diverse religionsand may even question their own. Jenkins said religion provides students with copingmechanisms and allows them to connect with a commu-nity. The uncertainty that many experience in their reli-gious beliefs is another stressor that may contribute tolower emotional health.
“You should explore the religious eld,” Jenkins said.“Enjoy the journey of nding what you believe in, don’t
avoid it.”Development of new technology has also increased ourdependence on technology and may be a contributing tolower emotional health.“The constant exposure to distraction that studentsexperience through things like video games and websitesis likely overloading student’s minds and making themfeel stressed,” Jenkins said.Recommendations from the Counseling Center toincrease mental health include making yourself at home oncampus, getting connected with people, trying out clubsand organizations, not getting toocaught up in academic stress, get-ting enough sleep and exercising.
Zimmerman said that getting
involved made the transition intocollege life easy.“I made the transition by gettinginvolved with clubs, swimming forBerry, and attending lots of campus
events,” Zimmerman said. “By doing all of that I have built
strong relationships with other people and have truly beenable to enjoy my college experience.” Jenkins said above all, listening is the most importantpractice for maintaining good mental health.“There is nothing I believe in more than being a good
listener and nding a good listener,” Jenkins said.
 Jenkins said the Counseling Center is not for everyone, but it does work for most students who try it.“We strive to promote student independence,” Jen-kins said. “We are here to listen and are completely
“Incoming students are prob-ably in the middle of the most major life transition they’veexperienced so far.”
