Other participants in the show included Second String Quarterback Mack Callahan and Senator Markov’s son Daemein Markov.

Martha Patterson's Annex Remodel

To stunned campus officials it appears during last weeks series of storms a group of vandals broke into the Martha Patterson’s Annex. Several student exhibits were destroyed or stolen including Samantha Wilkes’ award winning “Beautiful Smile”. putridity.jpg] Campus security is currently investigating the subject however, “With the power outages at the time evidence is scarce to none.” states Carol Keller, Campus Life Director. Dr. Thomas Shelby, Dean of Fine Arts has used this tragedy as a means to “bring a new level of culture to our slice of campus” by starting a fund raising campaign to rebuild the annex with a new sleek modern facade. Those looking to “Help Save The Annex” can buy a ticket to the fundraising concert on February 7th at the Shickman Concert Hall.

Save the Annex Concert Building Buzz

This coming Saturday’s concert scheduled to take place at the Shickman Concert Hall has been moved to the Raven’s Nest due to the incredible demand and support received. Headliners include local bands Punk Weasel and Sassafras and thanks to an incredibly generous donations from the ETU Booster Society and Pinebox Camber of Commerce several carnival rides and attractions have been rented for the occasion. “I never thought we would have such rallying support from the community. It really goes to show you that there is still a love of the arts.” State Dr. Thomas Shelby with tear filled eyes. It seems that this now music “festival” may very well be the even of the year with just about everyone in town and on campus now looking to attend.

50 Year Losing Streak Finally Broken

.Baseball.jpgThis Saturday second string quarterback turned first string pitcher Mack Callahan pitched a no hitter against the South Florida Snapping Gators. After 50 years without a single win a complete closeout is beyond unthinkable, but we are happy to see it happen. Lets all hope this marks a new area in ETU baseball

The Wins Just Keep Coming

Baseball.jpg Freshman pitcher Mack Callahan is on fire recently pitched two, yes I said TWO, more no hitters this season. Wit games like this its looking like a fun road to nationals and possibly a trophy to add to that dusty relic of a case down by the fields. Let’s just hope this kid doesn’t leave us for greener pastures.

It's Greek Week!

Greek_Week.gifThat’s right Ravens next week is Greek Week where all of our fraternities and sororities battle it out for the Dionysus Cup. The festivities kick off Saturday night with the Annual Opening Ceremonies Party at the OBN house where the houses top “athletes” meet and greet before the games begin Sunday. As usually this is sadly an invite only affair, but if history stands the open to all after party should be EPIC. Hope to see you all there.

Greek Tragedy

So it appears OBN is once again the word around campus. Sadly this time around it’s tragedy over comedy as House President Vance Crawford was arrested in connection with the murder of fellow house mate Dave Dalton. In addition second chair Marcus Hicks as well as nearly all other junior and senior members of the house seem to have left town without warning. This marks the peak of a growing concern among fellow houses as to the reputation of party house OBN. Founded only 41 years ago in 1973 OBN has had more than it’s share of run ins with the law however murder bring a new low to the youngest of the ETU Greek Family.

Surprise News From OBN

Even with their house in dire straights OBN doesn’t seem to give up. Latest news emerges that OBN has been sitting with a proverbial ace up their sleeves claiming both Daemein Markov and Mack Callahan as pledges along with several of their friends. “It’s a nice ruse to build support for their house, but sadly we all know new pledges cannot be invited this late into the year.” states Iota Delta Delta House President Willard Herman. Reports from an inside source however claim that the new pledges were in fact invited within the first semester and instead simply are late in a formal acceptance of said invite. When asked of such a claim Willard responded in kind with, “Even if that is the case the point is mute as the only way to allow a late response is with an over turn by the house president and given that he’s in jail and his second in the wind I don’t see that happening.”

Glass Menagerie Curtain Call

Theater.jpgSo it appears that ETU’s Theater Department will not be performing The Glass Menagerie as scheduled. Last night director Gene Smith better known under his stage name Conner Mayes has been taken into police custody. Little is known of the circumstances however rumors are circulating about confession of both murder and attempted arson. With such news in light it is not much of a stretch for Golan authorities to be looking towards Mayes for answers to the recent spree of arson investigations and his involvement with Colin Maylor, another suspect in said investigations that was found dead Sunday evening along Highway 96.

Shooting in Pinebox

JacksonPortrait.pngSome of us might be breathing an extra sigh of relief to be leaving for summer break. The night before finals tragedy struck with a bang as reports of gunshot being fired at the home of graduate student Jackson Green. Pinebox PD are suspecting foul play and would urge anyone with information about the location of Mr. Green or what happened that night to please come forward. As per ETU tradition a memorial for Jackson Green will be held at the Edgar Garland Student Center Memorial Room. Sadly due to this tragedy occurring so close to the end of the year attendance will be low.
