Hate crime at Berry
Kelly dicKerson
News Editor
A student returned to his Deereld residence hall Mon
day night around 11:15 p.m. to nd liquid bleach poured
in his top two dresser drawers along with a note reading“faggot nigger fuck off.”“Racially it’s upsetting that someone hates me for whoI am,” the student said. “Sexually it’s upsetting that some-one hates me for who they think I am.”After discovering the damage the student said he called
his resident assistant who then called campus police ofcerSmith. The ofcer arrived around 11:45 p.m. and led a po
lice report and the resident assistant then led a Residence
Life report.The student said he planned on going home that night
 but arrived at his car to nd the back right tire slashed andthe bottle of bleach behind his car. He then called Ofcer
Smith who arrived and took pictures of the damage.“The past couple days have been extremely uncomfort-able,” the student said. “I consider Berry my home and Ifeel like I have been violated in my own home.”The student said he chose a college based on the com-munity, the support on campus, and the kind of people atthe school. He said he still feels safe and welcome at Berry but now with a degree of hesitation.The student said he was gone from his room from aboutnoon to 11:15 p.m. that day but he and his roommate leftthe door unlocked.Director of International Students Tasha Toy said therehave been incidents on campus before but nothing to thisdegree of severity.Dean of Students Debbie Heida said at the beginning ofthe fall semester, there was one incident of comments madeto a student and two incidents of writing on a whiteboard.However, Heida said this occurrence is a greater level ofseverity since a student’s property was damaged.Heida said she and Chief of Police Bobby Abrams metwith the student Tuesday. An investigation is underway to
nd the person or persons responsible.
The student said there has been an incredible responsefrom the administration, faculty and students.“They have all been very helpful and I can see there isa general disagreement with things like this,” the studentsaid.“Frankly, I hope people are angry,” Heida said.Heida said whoever is found to be responsible will bedisciplined according to Viking Code and this kind of of-fense is punishable by suspension. Heida said suspensionsare rarely less than one year.Heida said this kind of act can make the victim feel sin-gled out and fearful.
“I believe it’s very difcult to feel like you’re the tar
-get based on your race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or re-ligion,” Heida said. “This kind of act arouses a great dealof fear.”The student said he thinks it is sad that in the 21st cen-tury this kind of thing is still going on.“My parents and grandparents experienced things likethis, hoping that I wouldn’t have to go through the samething,” the student said.Heida said she believes this kind of act impacts not onlythe victim but the community too.

Head footballcoach searchnears close

Associate Provost AndrewBressette said he believes tuitionhas increased at a rate of about sixpercent in recent years.“Six percent may seem like alot, but when you compare it toour peer and aspirant schools, thedollar amount is actually less,”Bressette said. “Our tuition is thesecond lowest in our peer andaspirant group so a six percent
increase of $24,000 tuition is sig
nicantly less than say a four per
cent increase of an almost $40,000
tuition institution.”Bressette said that keeping tu-ition on the lower end and giving
out more nancial aid than simi
-lar schools has been a priority forBerry.Dean of Students Debbie Heidasaid that need-based scholarshipsare adjusted proportionally withthe increase in tuition but meritscholarships are not.Heida said this year’s increasewas about the same as last year.Bressette said the increase islargely due to maintaining opera-tional costs.“Things like energy costs have
gone up signicantly,” Bressette
said. “Unfortunately most of the
increase is from xed costs like
utilities and insurance so it be-comes a take it or leave it kind ofthing.”Bressette said some of the in-crease also goes toward modestsalary increases for professors.College President Stephen R.Briggs said tuition is a cost that isnot necessarily obvious.“The ‘cost of tuition’ is the costof what students don’t pay for,
factoring nancial aid,” Briggs
said. “Tuition covers a small por-tion of overall expenses of thecollege, and other areas of the col-lege’s revenue that don’t grow asfast.”

Beginning in October 2011, the
future plans for Berry football be-
come ofcial and started a new
chapter in Berry history. Amongmany simultaneous aspects be-ing planned, currently the searchand decision for the head coach iscoming to a close with the top twocandidates visiting the campus.
The nal decision of the top
two candidates was recently madeafter multiple sessions of closely
examining all details of over 260
applications. Athletic DirectorTodd Brooks released the namesin a campus-wide email Tuesday,March 27.Tony Kunczewski of LaGrange,Ga. is visiting Berry Wednesday,March 28 and Thursday, March
29. The other nalist, Rick Fox
of West Des Moines, Ia. is visit-ing Sunday, April 1 and Monday,April 2.“These two are the ones wehave the most excitement about,”College President Stephen R.Briggs said.Among the plans on the sched-uled itinerary for the candidatesare tours of the campus, the Ste-ven J. Cage Athletic and Recre-ation Center, as well as Rome.They will have the chance to meetwith faculty and students each intheir own open forum where theywill introduce themselves, pro-vide background information andanswer any questions.Brooks said he hopes facul-ty and students will attend theopen forums and get to know thecandidates.“We do want to be transpar-ent and let everyone be involvedand meet the candidates,” Brookssaid.At each forum, the attendeeswill receive an evaluation form tocomplete and return before leav-ing. These will be taken into ac-count as a voice from the campus
for the nal decision.
