Magnolia Festival
Under the Big Top
Carissa Rozzell
The Second Annual Magnolia Festival will take place
in downtown Durant on May
Last year's celebration
was one of the largest of its
kind. An estimated 25,000
helped make it a success.
Many of these people represented Southeastern as students, faculty staff and administration.
The Medical Center of
Southeastern Oklahoma and
the Durant Area Chamber of
Commerce will once again
join with Southeastern to
sponsor this year's festival.
The coordinators of the
events need all the help they
can get from volunteers.
The festival will include
country music, classic rock,
gospel singing and exciting
entertainment. There will be
everything from country
dancing to jugglers.
Beautiful hot air balloons
will blaze across the sky on
Friday night during a race.
There will be additional
launches on Saturday and
Sunday mornings, and on
Saturday evening.
Shows, including art,
crafts, and antiques, are
scheduled events. Many of
the items will be for sale.
There is a special category
for paintings of magnolias.
S o m e of the crafters will be
on hand to demonstrate their
talent. Antique experts will
also be there to share some of
their knowledge.
A buggy ride will also be available for the public to experience
the history of Durant and its culture before statehood.
Shuttle service will be provided to the Quilt Celebration.
Antique and modern quilts will be
on display. A raffle will make
some lucky festival-goer the winner of one of the quilts.
Tickets will need to be purchased for the popular Magnolia
Belle and Beau Luncheon/Style
Show. The exhibition is to honor
Durant's heritage. The men and
w o m e n selected will embody the
spirit of the region.
The festival, in collaboration
with the headquarters of the
Choctaw Nation located in Durant,
plans to showcase the history
and culture of the Choctaw Indians. Native Americans will serve
as storytellers, artisans, traditional
dancers and singers.
For the golf nuts, the Kiwanis/
Landmark Golf Tournament will
add to the merriment in an 18
hole round of golf.
A vintage car show will prove
to be a highlight of the festivities.
It will be held in Durant's Market
Square and will feature cars from
all eras.
The Magnolia Run is a 5 or
10K race for all skill levels. The
course will take you from rolling
hills to countryside in this area.
The festival begins at 10 a.m.
on Friday, May 29. It promises to
be fun for the whole family.

Internet Chat Night to Offer
Career Planning Assistance
to Students and Families
Students planning for the future, adults getting ready for
career changes and parents helping children with career
choices can find answers to their career questions by logging
onto a nationwide live Internet chat session, "Career Chat."
Sponsored by the Oklahoma Guaranteed Student Loan
Program ( O G S L P ) and other guarantee agencies around the
nation, the live chat session will be held Wednesday, M a y 6,
from 6 to 8 p.m.
"This Internet chat session will give students and parents a
unique opportunity to talk with career counselors from around
the country about planning for the future," said O G S L P Executive Director Alice Strong-Simmons. "Participants can get
advice on setting career goals, finding a career that matches
their interests and searching for a job."
Anyone with Internet access can participate in the session
by visiting O G S L P ' s website at www.ogslp.org and connecting
to Mapping Your Future. O n c e visitors select the chat session, they will receive simple instructions on h o w to join the
discussion. They can also pre-register for the chat session
and choose to have a reminder sent a few days before the
"One-on-one interaction with career advisors around the
nation is another example of h o w Oklahoma higher education
is using technology to help students get the information they
need to plan for college and beyond," said Chancellor Hans
Students can get more information on planning for college
by visiting the O G S L P website or calling 1-800-858-1840.
Mapping Your Future — a college, career, and financial aid
website — is sponsored by O G S L P and guarantee agencies
in other states that participate in the Federal Family Education
Loan Program. In Oklahoma, loans for higher education or
post-secondary education m a d e to students by private or
public lending institutions are guaranteed by the federal
government through O G S L P , which is administered by the
Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Well, this semester is finally coming to an end. Endings are good, because they
bring about n e w beginnings. The students w h o are graduating and ending their educational
experience will have n e w beginnings in their lives.
Now, instead of spending their days and nights with school work and paying for it,
they get to work in 'the real world' (as m a n y are fond of calling it).
After graduation comes the job search. This is grueling work. Applications are long
and after filling out three or four, they all begin to look identical. S o m e employers require an
education while others require experience. There are employers w h o require both. I love
those employers w h o want experienced employees. This doesn't even m a k e sense. H o w
do you get experience if you can't get hired? People say get an education so you can get a
job. Then you get an education, but they won't hire you without experience. Look at 'the
real world' now.
The campus is a micro-cosm, it is a world of its own. W e have our o w n laws on
campus that are not even related to the laws in the city of Durant. Like 'the real world', w e
have students from all across the globe. Students are here for different reasons, but are all
after the s a m e thing: A n education and a foundation for the future.
W h e n a person does finally get a job, their lives will change. A person cannot hit the
snooze on the alarm four or five times. They can't skip a shower to catch s o m e extra zzz's.
They have to get up on time and get to work on time.
Another thing to change would be eating habits. W h e n hungry now, I just stop
studying and eat. At work, you m a y only have one particular time you can eat. There m a y
or m a y not be a microwave at your place of employment. A person m a y be forced to eat out
every day.
O n e other thing to think about, no more skipping class just once to go to the Texas
State Fair, or what ever. O n c e you are working, you m a y only have the weekends for
leisure time. S o m e people m a y be forced to work on the weekends, w h e n does this leave
time for leisure?
W h a t is 'the real world' anyway? S o m e consider it to be the world as the w a y they
perceive it. S o m e people say 'the real world' when they refer to a job. W h o knows! T h e
real world' is what you think it is, I guess. Does this m e a n when I graduate, I will get to go
into 'the real world'? If I will be going into 'the real world' soon, then a m I in the unreal world
The world is pretty unreal sometimes. People are shot and killed sometimes for no
apparent reason at all. People talk badly about others. People lie, cheat and steal to satisfy
their selfish needs. People go into restaurants and kill people then kill themselves. G a n g s
will shoot you in s o m e cities for wearing the wrong kind of baseball cap.
Scandals, sex, and violence seem to be the only things aired on the television.
People claim they are tired of hearing about the m a n y Clinton scandals; although T V ratings
are higher during the airing of these scandals.
In surveys, the question w a s asked, "What is your top priority?" Family w a s their top
priority, 9 0 % said. However, our actions and attitudes reflect money as being the most
important thing to acquire here in 'the real world'. If our top priority w a s actually the family,
w e would live in an 'ideal world'. However, this is unrealistic.

Columbia, M o . - Across campus, students complain about courses and
general education requirements:
"Why do I need to take 12 hours of Spanish?"
"This course isn't teaching m e anything I don't already know."
"Math 10!"
Students argue against courses and requirements, often questioning the
classes' relevance beyond an acedemic setting.
Students might start arguing about n e w a requirement in the future.
For years, campus committees and officals have debated about adding a
diversity course requirement to the curriculum. Students might have to take a
course in W o m e n ' s Studies, Black History or another subject dedicated to
improving cultural awareness.
Although few, if any, formal proposals to add such a requirement have
been m a d e , the issue is constantly discussed.
But students don't need a diversity course requirement or a course in
cultural awareness to increase their appreciation for and knowledge of other
races, cultures and lifestyles.
They don't need to learn that knowledge in a classroom.
Instead, they can learn it on this campus.
Although M U has a long way to go before it fully represents society,
students have an opportunity to expand their cultural horizons. The opportunity
c o m e s in the form of interaction with students whose creed, race, ethnicity or
gender differs from your own.
Such opportunities abound at M U .
Don't be afraid to take a W o m e n ' s Studies course if you're male; don't be
afraid to take a Black History course if you're white. Don't be afraid to talk with
m e m b e r s of the Legion of Black Collegians or the Triangle Coalition. Don't be
afraid to learn about other cultures while in college, and don't be afraid to
challenge yourself. Higher education is not merely the pursuit of textbook
knowledge; at M U , it's the opportunity to grow.
Cultural growth and awareness can't be taught in a standard classroom
surrounded by walls and filled with desks and chairs.
The M U campus is a true classroom, where you can learn to appreciate
diversity, understand other cultures and gain insight from people with
experience different from yours.

O X F O R D , Ohio-The only
way for Miami University to

to cut the school's wrestling and

money spent on them -- roughly
$300,000 a year -- to women's
programs, a consultant has told
university officials.
The university hired the
consultant to help find ways to
meet Title XI -- a relatively new
rule which stipulates that
schools provide m e n and

programs. The consultant
concluded that the university
won't be able to raise enough
money to increase the number
of sports it offers to w o m e n
without eliminating some men's
sports, President J a m e s
Garland said.
The university suggested
that the men's tennis team be

"When w e received our draw
sheet, w e knew w e would have
a difficult time with Texas
Women's and someone would
have to play over their head,"
Coach Pat Mauldin said.
"Unfortunately, w e did not
do that, so w e wound up losing
that match. It didn't help any
that they were making
mistakes," Mauldin said.
"We lost that one at the
numbers one and two doubles,
one, two and three singles. Our
number three doubles was our
only win."
