... DuBose Kapeluck, a political science professor at The Citadel, said the violations are at odds with DeMint's image as a fiscalminded, good-government reformer, but he noted also that campaign finance law is so complicated that these violations probably won't hamper DeMint's 2010 reelection bid. "This probably will be raised by his challenger, the Democrat who runs against him, but it's unlikely to find any traction that long away from now," Kapeluck said.

Trading Citadel for a chance at happiness

(This is an edited version of a ReporterU blog first published at blogcentral.thereporter.com/. -- Editor)  Iwill not be returning to The Citadel for the spring semester. Instead, I will be attending Napa Valley College for a semester.  A combination of many things lead me to this decision. I took over as a "corporal" a little over a month ago and my duties entailed such exhilarating tasks such as yelling at freshman and ... well ... nothing else really.  I can't really pinpoint every reason I came here, but I know one of the reasons had to have been to learn how to lead. I cannot do this here. A lot of institutions, programs and groups would like to take credit for making a leader, but the more time you spend in places like this, the more you learn that it's not a learned trait.

"Right hand man" is stepping down

Twenty-three years ago, Citadel athletic director Walt Nadzak drove to the airport to pick up Ray Whiteman, who was flying in to interview for a job as the Bulldogs' assistant AD. "When I picked him up, the car was on empty," Nadzak said. "We pulled into the gas station, and I had no money, no credit card, nothing. So Ray had to pay for the gas."
That's right. Before he was even interviewed for the job, Whiteman had to fill up the boss's car with gas.
Whiteman, 62, has been invaluable to Citadel athletics ever since. After nearly a quarter-century as The Citadel's "right-hand man," he is retiring as senior associate athletic director for internal affairs. Today is his last full day on the job, though he will return in January and February to tie up loose ends.

Engineering students make donation to support teaching

The Citadel Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) donated $10,000 to the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department to purchase equipment that will help instructors improve how they teach.  The money was used to purchase student response pads, commonly known as “clickers.” Students enter answers to yes/no, multiple choice, or numerical questions on the devices and the entries are tallied by a classroom computer. The professor can then instantly analyze the results to evaluate student knowledge. The devices can record responses that are anonymous or assigned to a student, allowing for integration into the students course grade.

Clemson furlough (letter to the editor by faculty speaker at the College of Charleston)

... As far as faculty are concerned, this is not a furlough. When faculty are not in the classroom, they are grading papers, preparing class, researching and writing in their fields of expertise, and providing administrative services to the university, etc. None of these duties are diminished by a five-day unpaid leave.  Clemson's faculty will still grade those papers, publish their articles and manage their laboratories and will conduct the business of the university. Faculty members will do exactly the same amount of work.  The only way to truly furlough faculty would be to cancel classes. Otherwise, a "furlough" is simply a pay cut. ...
