Lxcitement buzzed through
the Chestnut lill College com!
munity when an announcement
was made that the campus book!
store was being reamped and
taken oer by Barnes & Noble
,B&N,. Students hoped that
this new bookstore would make
buying textbooks and other mer!
chandise a more pleasant experi!
ence, not to mention easier and
cheaper.
Cristina Lo Piccolo, that act!
ing manager o the ClC book!
store, which is a branch o B&N`s
college diision, eels that this
moe will be especially beneF!
cial and conenient or students.
1he school wanted a change,`
Lo Piccolo said. 1he sta at our
store is here to help not only stu!
dents, but teachers and parents in
order to make the transition into
the new school year and semester
easier or all parties.`
1he new B&N store is, in!
deed, a big change and a step
up rom the old bookstore. 1he
new bookstore oers B&N no!
els and other leisure reads, in ad!
dition to textbooks aailable in
multiple ormats. loweer, the
store oers more than just books.
,Sorry, there`s no ca!, 1here`s
updated school spirit merchan!
dise and apparel, and the expand!
ed candy and snack aisles are also
popular.
loweer, while students like
lrances Lllison `15, beliee the
store`s layout is more organized`
now, they wish the store could
sell more merchandise and are
disappointed that they seemed to
hae reduced their stock o ari!
ous apparel items.
Nick lratto `16, agrees. 1hey
had more shirts last year,` he said.
loweer, he also acknowledges
that the bookstore has made
improements` or the better.
Lo Piccolo is hoping that
students realize that the new
bookstore has much more to o!
er than just merchandise. It`s
much riendlier and open,` she
said. It`s a happier enironment.
\e`re more ocused on our cus!
tomers. \hen they come into
the store, we greet them within
ten seconds. \e are more open
to suggestions to make the store
better.`
1he B&N management plans
to create an innoation group,
which will consist o students,
aculty, and sta to discuss how
to keep pricing reasonable while
still bettering the clothing selec!
tion and textbook options.
Right now, the management`s
main concern is making things as
conenient or customers as pos!
sible and to help students transi!
tion into the new semester. \e
are here to sere them and their
needs,` Lo Piccolo said. \e are
riendly people. Come down to
see us, een i it`s just to chat.`

1his semester, Janice Bash!
man, an accomplished proes!
sional writer with a just-pub!
lished young adult noel, joins
the Lnglish department or the
Frst time as an adjunct creatie
writing instructor.
\ithout giing too much
away, Bahsman`s book, Preda!
tor,` which is now aailable in
paperback and in electronic or!
mat, is about a teenage girl who
makes an astonishing discoery
while researching bog bodies in
Ireland with her ather and as a
result, is thrown into signiFcant
danger on multiple ronts.
Bashman`s inspiration or
this plot line came rom photos
o the \estern Coast o Ireland
that appeared on her lacebook
page. Soon ater seeing these
photos, she began to research
the area and to ormulate the
story in her head.
I hae always had an interest

in science and mythology and it
all came together, but I had to
Fgure out how to make it work
as a story,` Bashman said. 1hat`s
where the research came in. She
had to speak to numerous spe!
cialists and scientists on arious
topics rom the science behind
bog bodies to how to bypass se!
curity in an Irish airport. A lot
o people are willing to help as
long as you tell them why you`re
researching, and as long as you`re
not asking or too much.`
But it is not always singular
eents like seeing pictures on
lacebook that inspire Bashman,
who is also the editor o the
international e-zine, 1he Big
1hrill,` to write. It all began with
the magic pencil. \hen I was
little I always thought pencils

In order to better ensure the
saety and security o students
liing on campus, Allied Barton
Security Serices has implement!
ed a new late night security policy
at Sugar Loa lall, according to
Polly 1eti, who heads the security
team.
Ater talking with security
oFcers and students through
her open-door policy, 1eti, who
was a police oFcer or 30 years,
realized that risks to the isolated
Sugar Loa campus increased
largely ater midnight. 1o take
proactie steps against poten!
tial threats, she added an extra
saety eature to keep unauthor!
ized persons out o the building.
Ater midnight, security locks
the door and i students want to
enter, they must ring a doorbell.
Security will check their ID cards
beore letting them enter the
building.
\hy let a problem in when
you can keep it out` said 1eti,
who oten rotates what time she
works in order to see ClC and
its relationship to security at di!
erent times o the day and di!
erent days o the week.
Ater the policy was enacted
at Sugar Loa, students expressed
praise or the increased secu!
rity. She is now looking into the
possibility o enacting increased
security measures or other resi!
dence halls.
New doors or the second
and third noors o lournier that
connect the residence hall to the
classrooms,oFces hae been
ordered. 1he current doors are
not locked and people can enter
and exit through them at their
discretion. 1he doors that will be
installed this semester will elimi!
nate this saety concern.
1eti has discussed dier!

change their perspectie regard!

I you saw a ellow student
in trouble at a party, would you
interene But i you said yes,
would you know how to help
\hen you are a bystander, it
isn`t always easy to know what
you should do and how to do it.
Student Lie hopes to Fx
that problem. 1he department
has taken the initiatie to in!
struct students on how to in!
terene in harmul situations by
implementing the Step UP! Be a
Leader, Make a Dierence pro!
gram, which is currently being
used on other college campuses
nationwide.
Step UP! was ounded by the
Uniersity o Arizona C.A.1.S.
Lie Skills Program and Nation!
al Collegiate Athletic Associa!
tion in an eort to encourage
pro-social behaior when deal!
ing with situations like alcohol
abuse, hazing, eating disorders,
sexual assault and discrimina!
tion.
1he goals o the program
are to educate students on suc!
cessul tactics or helping oth!
ers, boost their desire to help
and ensure the saety o those
inoled. Originally, the pro!
gram targeted student athletes,
but it has since deeloped into
a comprehensie lesson or all
students that inoles open dis!
cussions between mentors and
students.
Krista Bailey Murphy, dean
o student lie, beliees this is
an important addition to the
Dear Neighbor` mentality o
ClC. 1he students here at
ClC want to do the right thing,
but now we are proiding them
with the skills to do so,` she
stated.
All Resident Assistants
and Orientation Leaders were
trained during the summer on
the basis o the Step UP! pro!
gram. Orientation Coordinator
Charles Dais elt as though he
got a lot out o the training. It`s
important that we not only step
up campuswide, but through!
out the outside community as
well,` Dais said. \e all need
to help one another and i we
rise to the occasion, it gies us
a great opportunity to really
change someone`s lie.`
ClC sta members will be
isiting each o the lirst \ear
Initiatie ,l\I, classes to ex!
plain to Frst years the impor!
tance o interention. Also,
throughout the year, Step UP!
Bystander Training Empowers Students

presentations will be gien or
upperclassmen, who hae not
already completed the neces!
sary training. ClC`s President
Sister Carol Jean Vale and her
cabinet will also be partaking in
the bystander instruction.
As a part o training, partici!
pants are gien a red and gold
knotted bracelet to symbol!
ize the interconnectedness and
strength that can be ound at
ClC. 1hese bracelets can be
ound on students and aculty
alike, reminding us that it is e!
eryone`s responsibility to step
up and do the right thing.
Ultimately, our goal is to
cut back on the dangers that
can occur rom negligence,`
Murphy said. \ou can neer
eliminate risks completely, but
we want to ensure that all o
our students can rely on one an!
other to step up and hae their
back.`

on plan or crisis situations can
help protect students rom saety
threats. She also recommends
that students try to approach is!
sues on campus with an attitude
that is thoughtul o potential
threats toward indiidual and
community saety.` I you look
at the security procedures on
campus with a saety lens, you
can deconstruct it to discoer
why it exists.
1o illustrate this, she ex!
plained how some students try
to bypass swiping in and out o
residence halls or conenience
purposes or in order to sneak in
riends. A limited perspectie can
only see the present: your day is
more eFcient and your night
more enjoyable. But shiting your
iewpoint, she said, exposes the
threats to saety inherent in these
actions. lor example, i there is a
Fre and you did not sign in and
you are unable to exit the build!
ing, the Fre department will not
know to look or you. I you did
not sign out, they will waste their
time looking or you when you
are somewhere else. By widen!
ing your angle, you could see that
the policy requiring students and
their guests to sign in and out is
not a rule, but a saety eature.
1eti expressed how much
she loes the community at
ClC and how much she worries
about keeping it sae. 1o her, she
needs to optimize security at the
College in order to sustain this
wholesome community. ClC
is like a dome,` she said, And
it`s my job to make sure it doesn`t
crack.`

were magic because people
could write books with them,
and I thought that was really
cool,` she said. O course,
people were writing the books,
but the pencils low could they
write such wonderul things with
pencils`
loweer, Bashman was not
always set on becoming an au!
thor, een though she loed to
write. ler Frst career was in 1V
and Flm production because she
loed to create stories, yet, there
was little satisaction ater shoot!
ing and editing a piece o Flm
because, \ou`re not in control
o eerything, whereas in writ!
ing you control the whole story.
\ou birth it rom you and your
own imagination.`
It was not until 2008 that
Bashman was published or the
Frst time and since then, she
has co-authored a successul
non-Fction book, \anted Un!
dead or Alie: Vampire lunters
and Other Kick-Ass Lnemies
o Lil,` along with numerous
short stories and articles. She
also has two more noels in the
works. I do it because I loe to
do it and I eel like I need to do
it.`
In addition to all the writing
and editing Bashman does, she
has taken up a position here at
ClC teaching a short Fction

writing course or the Lnglish
department`s creatie writing
minor. I hae a small class and
they really participate, which
is wonderul,` she said. I am
not the type o person that will
lecture or an hour because I
don`t think it is beneFcial to the
students particularly in writing
class. I like to hae a back and
orth.`
As an experienced writer and
a Bram Stoker Award nominee,
Bashman is well-qualiFed to gie
adice to aspiring writers. Don`t
listen to other people i they
tell you your work isn`t good or
you`ll neer get published or suc!
ceed because i you do you will
get discouraged,` Bashman said.
So don`t gie up.` She stresses
that success will only come out
o the loe you pour into your
writing.`

Since My Chemical RoB

to a solo record deal with \arB

his Frst solo LP was near comB

he has perormed small, intiB
mate shows in the UK and reB
cently announced tour dates in

1he album, titled lesitant

A music ideo or the second

It is clear that dedicated ans are
desperate or a resurgence o

No Shows` is reminiscent

1here is good news and
there is bad news when con4
sidering My Lerything,` the
sophomore release rom Nick4
elodeon child-star-turned-pop-
superstar, Ariana Grande. 1he
bad news is it is not a great al4
bum. 1he good news, howeer,
it is not necessarily a bad one
FJ9GFD:
My Lerything` is a clear
departure rom Grande's Frst
album, \ours 1ruly.` Gone are
the 90s Mariah-esque soul bal4
lads. Instead Grande leans to4
wards more exciting pop tunes
with a strong hip hop innuence.
Beore its Aug. 22 release,
three o the album's singles-
Problem,` Break lree,` and
Bang Bang` ,eatured on the
deluxe ersion o the album,-
charted in the 1op 5 on the
Billboard lot 100 list, which
speaks olumes or Grande's
meteoric rise to ame, and her
incredible command as a rela4
tiely new artist. Unortunately,
it makes the album's weaker
points all the more disappoint4
ing.
My Lerything` opens
strong, with the jazzy club
banger Problem,` her chart
topping collaboration with Iggy
Azalea. lrom there, her R&B-
esque ocals now seamlessly
through dance-y pop tracks,
like Break lree,` the album's
second single, eaturing popular
LDM producer Zedd and One
More 1ime,` a song that remi4
nisces on a relationship past. It
is through the Frst Fe or six
tracks where the listener really
gets a sense o a young woman
Fnally coming into her own.
loweer, it is the second
hal o the album that seems
to all nat, accomplishing the
seemingly contradictory task
o being directionless and yet
oerly repetitie. 1he album
eels as though it completely
loses ocus halway through.
1he collaborations tend to
become heay handed, to the
point where Grande hersel is
almost lost-not een eaturing
credits rom prominent hip hop
artists Childish Gambino and
1he \eeknd bring anything
new or worth listening to. She
brings to the table a more adult
sound, but not much else.

stronger tracks are incredibly

LDI1OR-IN-ClILl
Since actor and comic
Robin \illiam`s death last
month, many hae posed
the same questions asked
eery time a suicide occurs:
\hy didn`t he seek help
\hy did nobody notice
something was wrong low
could he not know how
loed he was
But I hae one more
question to add to this list:
\hy do we wait until ater
someone takes their own
lie to ask these questions
1he answer is simple. \e
wait because talking about
mental illness is uncomort.
able.
But the ery reason it
makes us so uncomortable
is the same reason why it is
so crucial to discuss. 1here`s
still a heay stigma sur.
rounding mental illness.
Stigma is when we, as a
society, iew a certain trait in
a negatie light because we
think it`s a disadantage. In
other words, it`s a negatie
stereotype. Stigma can lead
to misunderstanding and
discrimination, een when
it`s not intended. \hen it
comes to mental health, our
society tends to iew mental
illness as a naw.
But consider how prea.
lent mental illness may be on
our own campus.
According to a study con.
ducted by the Substance
Abuse and Mental lealth Ser.
ices Association, or SAM.
lSA, one in our o people
between the ages o 18 and
24 hae a diagnosable mental
illness. 1his means that each
o us probably has a riend,
classmate, or teammate who
is liing with a mental illness,
201601: 21 7:1 727:1 9? 56 9:
not.
loweer, a 2012 surey
rom the National Alliance
on Mental Illness reports that
around 40 percent o students
with mental illnesses do not
seek help, and the number one
reason they don`t is because
9? ?17: 9? 465@=7<
1his means that it is more
than likely that there are stu.
dents on this campus with
mental illnesses who don`t
get the help they need be.
cause they are scared o being
judged by others.
1hink o it this way. I
your body got sick tomorrow,
your riends would tell you
to take care o yoursel, to
seek proessional help, to go
to the emergency room i it
was serious enough. But i it
was your mind that got sick,
would they tell you the same
thing
1he act that it`s still a
question that needs to be
asked saddens me deeply.
Because I don`t think that
any o us mean to perpetu.
ate this idea that mental ill.
ness makes you abnormal,
or deter anyone rom seek.
ing help. 1he problem is
simply that we don`t talk
about it until ater a tragedy,
like suicide, happens.
But why wait I we start
the conersation now, we
can crush the stigma sur.
rounding mental illness, and
encourage others to get help
when they need it.

On Aug. 11, people around
the world were shocked when
the news o Robin \illiam`s
death suraced. Shock turned
to conusion and despair when
it was ound that \illiams had
taken his own lie. Not only
did people mourn the loss o
the actor, but they also began
to wonder how such a happy
comedian could hide so much
psychological pain until it was
too late.
Unortunately, this is the
case with many college stu.
dents, too. Suicide.org identi.
Fes suicide as the second lead.
ing cause o death or college
students, with homicide as the
leading cause. 1he suicide rate
or young adults has tripled in
the past Fty years. An aerage
o 12 young adults commits
suicide eery day.
lour Uniersity o Penn.
sylania students committed
suicide in the past year, three
o which occurred in the same
semester. Six students com.
mitted suicide at Cornell Uni.
ersity in 2009. 1wo occurred
in the same week, in the same
department. In 2012, a Drexel
Uniersity student was ound
dead in the Schuylkill Rier,
and two days later, his death
was determined to be a suicide.
Ater hearing about all o
these cases, it is not surpris.
ing to learn that the emotional
health o college reshmen has
declined 12 percent in the last
25 years, according to College
Degree Search. 1his is the
lowest it has eer been. 1his
decline is most likely caused
by actors that students expe.
rience when they begin their
college education. Lmory
Cares 4 U, a suicide preention
group at Lmory Uniersity,
identiFes actors such as una.
miliar enironment, academic
and social pressures, home.
sickness, decreased academic
perormance, and experiment.
ing with drugs and alcohol. It
seems clear that one signiF.
cant actor is a lack o proper
coping skills.
\hile there are many rea.
sons or a college student to
experience suicidal thoughts,
there is only one that leads to
suicide. Lery act o suicide
begins with untreated depres.
sion. According to the Suicide
Preention Resource Center,
most students who commit
suicide during their college
career are not clients o the
school`s counseling center.
liteen percent o college
students screened positie or
depression. Sixty-one percent
said that they elt sad and 30
percent o these people elt so
depressed that it was diFcult

lor baseball ans, once the
playos and the \ild Card
rounds start, so do the predic2
tions about which major league
ranchise will win the \orld Se2
ries. lere are mine. loweer, it
is important to note that this was
written beore the playos start2
ed, so the teams in this bracket
may not be 100 percent accurate.
1his year`s home Feld ad2
antage goes to the American
League ,AL, because they won
the All-Star game played in July
by a Fnal score o Fe to three.
I think the Baltimore Orioles will
be the team out o the AL Last,
and either the Detroit 1igers or
the Kansas City Royals will be
representing the AL Central. But
or now, I will say it`s the 1igers
because een though they are
currently a hal-game behind the
Royals, they are the better team.
Lastly, the Los Angeles Angels,
led by Mike 1rout, will come out
o the AL \est diision.
1he AL \ild Card is looking
like it a matchup o the Oakland
Athletics and either the Kansas
City Royals or the Seattle Mari2
ners. I beliee that the Royals will
be the ones to preail and match
up with the Athletics in the \ild
Card game. In that game, the
Athletics will knock o the Roy2
als and moe on into the playo
bracket.
Now, looking at the our
teams in the bracket, it has to be
the Detroit 1igers who will ulti2
mately win the American League
,AL, and moe on to the \orld
Series. 1he only other team that
can be competitie with the 1i2
gers is the Athletics. Both o
these ranchises hae outstand2
ing pitching stas. 1he 1igers
eature Max Scherzer, Justin Ver2
lander, and the newly acquired
Daid Price, each o whom hae
all, at some point in their careers,
won the Cy \oung Award ,Best
Pitcher,. On the other hand, the
Athletics counter with Jon Lester,
Sonny Gray, Je Samardzija, and
Scott Kazmir.
I choose the 1igers to preail
in this matchup because their
pitching sta has been there be2
ore, as opposed to the young
talent the Athletics hae in their
arms. loweer, their pitchers,
with the exception o Lester,
hae not experienced the playos
beore. \ou hae to score runs to
win the game, and the 1igers` o2
ense is dynamic. 1hey can score
runs at will and the combination
o their pitching and oense will
carry them to the \orld Series.
On the National League ,NL,
side o the bracket, the \ashing2
ton Nationals will be the team
out o the NL Last, the St. Louis
Cardinals will most likely win
their NL Central diision, and the
Los Angeles Dodgers will repre2
sent the NL \est. As or the two
\ild Card teams in the NL, they
will most likely consist o the San
lrancisco Giants and the Pitts2
burgh Pirates.
In an exciting NL \ild Card
game, I predict that the Giants
will beat the Pirates and moe on
to Fll the playo bracket. Len
though the Giants hae been
struggling lately, i they can get
back to perorming the way they
had been all season, they will be
too much or the Pirates to han2
dle.
Looking at the big picture,
there is no one that is een close
to the leel that the Los Angeles
Dodgers are on. 1hey are just
too good. 1hey hae the pitch2
ing, the deense, and the oense
to run through this NL playo
bracket. I beliee that they will ul2
timately ace the Detroit 1igers in
the \orld Series. Both the 1igers
and Dodgers hae high-powered
oenses who like to rely on the
long ball ,home runs, to score
their runs. loweer, both teams`
pitching stas are the best in their
respectie leagues. 1he Dodgers
hae Clayton Kershaw, the best
pitcher in the game o baseball.
1he 1igers will hae to deal with
the Dodgers` closing pitcher,
Kenley Jansen late in the game,
so that is a situation they want to
aoid. ,Jansen has 41 saes this
season,.
I beliee that the L.A. Dodg2
ers are better and will come out
ictorious in this excellent \orld
Series matchup. I understand that
the best teams do not always win,
but I do not think that will be
the case here. I predict that the
Dodgers will win this series in
seen games and become cham2
pions o the world or the Frst
time since 1988. 1his \orld Se2
ries will be one or the ages.

elp will ask or it, but eery stu2
dent experiencing depression
and suicidal thoughts is in des2
perate need o help. Because
college can be a stressul tran2
sition or Frst-year students
and a balancing act o study2
ing, workloads, Fnancial pres2
sures and relationships or all
students, many will experience
some orm o stress or de2
pression at least once in their
college career. loweer, as
these symptoms worsen, there
are some common warning
signs o which aculty, sta,
and other students should be
aware. 1hese warning signs
include talking about suicide
or death, diFculty sleeping
or eating, drastic changes in
behaior, withdrawal rom so2
cial actiity and riends, loss o
interest in hobbies or school,
giing away prized possessions,
and loss o interest in physical
appearance or hygiene.
\hile it is extremely im2
portant to recognize these
warning signs and take action
to get help, it is also equally im2
portant not to make assump2
tions. People must remember
that een someone who seems
happy and conFdent might be
haing diFculty coping with
their stress or emotions. Len
the most seemingly content
people could be at risk or de2
pression or suicidal thoughts.
I a riend or student
seems to be struggling, there
are many options to get help.
Lery college campus has
completely conFdential coun2

to students at all times. 1here
are also helplines that are ree
to call. laculty and sta o

Although suicide among
college students is on the rise,
there are still ways to help. It is
important to pay attention to
eery warning sign, no matter
how obious or obscure, and
get help as soon as it is needed.
Students who are experiencing
depression or suicidal thoughts
must know that people will
listen. Most importantly, the
words I need help` really can
be the dierence between lie
and death.

turnaround led by Nick loles

1here are many dierent
ways the Lagles attacked on

amazing comeback ictory, the
Lagles traeled to Indianapolis
to take on the Colts in a Mon*

Once again, the team struggled
in the Frst hal, but maintained
a reasonable deFcit. In the sec*

lead midway through the third
quarter.
1he Lagles answered with
