  Student Senate has started a project that, i successul, would give priority enrollment to students at the University who are also parents. Senate executives have a meeting with Hilltop Child De-velopment Center this Turs-day, which will be the last step beore taking the idea to the registrar’s office. I implemented, the Univer-sity would be the first in the Big 12 to offer this option to student-parents. Senators have been doing research into initia-tives like this at other schools and have only ound a small amount o smaller colleges. No large state schools have done this yet and the University would be on the oreront o this policy. Morgan Said, student body president, said many parents at the University have hectic schedules and this would make one piece a little easier. “I think parenting alone is probably the hardest job the in world so to pair that with school and in most cases a job is such a tough balancing act and many students have reached out to me since we started this, indicating their ex-citement about this,” Said said. Jeremy Fite, executive direc-tor o Hilltop Child Develop-ment Center, said he is excited about the initiative and said it help parents graduate as soon as possible. “It would be nice to have our parents get priority enrollment because I think it keeps them motivated and get them en-rolled in classes quicker,” Fite said. “Te easier you make it on parents the more likely they are to graduate, so by providing priority enrollment or classes, plus we offer child care, we are trying to be as convenient as possible to parents to increase the likelihood they will finish their degree.”Te policy would help allevi-ate stress many student-parents eel when organizing class and child care schedules each se-mester. “Lie happens, especially when you have children, so you want to get done as quickly as possible,” Fite said. Said said the decision to work on this came this summer while working on platorms or non-traditional students at the University. She said this was a great first step, but that the o-fice hopes to continue to work with smaller groups o non-tra-ditional students to help meet their needs on campus.“No group is too small (or us) to really work to change their our years here and that’s our goal,” Said said. — Edited by Lyndsey Havens   Volume 128 Issue 32 Tuesday, October 21, 2014 All contents, unless stated otherwise, © 2014 The University Daily Kansan CLASSIFIEDS 13CROSSWORD 6CRYPTOQUIPS 6OPINION 4SPORTS 14SUDOKU 6 Sunny with a 0 percent chance of rain.

Can you come in?” Tey did not know it yet, but their world was about to drastically change.Te Reeves’ oldest son, KU sophomore Adam Reeves, said the whole amily was worried ollowing the phone call on that otherwise ordinary day. Once Angel and Gregory came home, they sat all o their children down to give them the news.Angel had been diagnosed with breast cancer.“It was a shif in gravity kind o eeling,” Adam said. “From that point on, everything changed priority wise and the way the world was going to work until mom was better.”Just seven weeks beore, An-gel had given birth to her sixth child, a baby girl. Afer the pregnancy, Angel developed a gol ball-sized lump in her breast. A couple weeks beore Christmas, Angel had the lump removed, being told the lump was not cancerous. Te doctors were wrong.“[My daughter] came into the world in a hurry and started us on this crazy journey,” Angel said.Te Reeves’ contacted the University o Kansas Hospital or a second opinion and were told that Angel’s cancer was tri-ple negative, a more aggressive orm o breast cancer. Te hos-pital insisted Angel begin che-motherapy treatment as soon as possible.Her amily and doctors con- vinced her to begin treatment. But that did not stop Angel. Even on treatment days, Angel continued to come home to look afer her kids, Adam said.“Whether she really elt like it or not, that’s just her personal-ity,” Adam said. “o be incred-ibly strong and having these issues in all honesty highlighted it to all o us how hard she was going to work.” When she could, Angel searched or scholarship op-portunities or Adam. Adam said afer finding out about his mother’s diagnosis, she said something positive might come out o it or him. It didn’t take long or her prediction to come true, as Adam was awarded the Ulman Cancer Foundation or Young Adults Scholarship in 2013.“It’s exactly like her. Instead o worrying about hersel and be-ing mopey about it, she’s going to make some positive out o it,” Adam said.As a mom and homemaker, Angel takes pride in supporting and taking care o her amily. She always got up in the morn-ings and took care o her kids, continuing even during treat-ments. One o Angel’s methods or coping with treatment was to make small goals or hersel every day, like making sure all the beds were made.“We just tried to keep things normal as possible or every-body because I didn’t want them to see any huge changes or or it to affect them negative-ly,” Angel said. “I wanted them to see that it could be OK and they didn’t have to worry about things.”On normal days, Angel’s hus-band, Gregory, would take the kids to school, which allowed Angel to sleep while her baby did. Just 12 weeks into her new-born’s lie, Angel could not lifor carry her.“Tat was really hard,” Angel said. “We had this new baby and I elt like I couldn’t do much with her.”Angel said Adam helped with the kids and took them wher-ever they needed to be. Tis responsibility was a big one, but he knew he had to carry it or his mother.“It was that first eeling I ever had that I can do this no mat-ter what because I need to do it or someone I love. It was a  very different leadership eel-ing [than] I’ve ever had beore,” Adam said.Angel also struggled with her treatment. Afer completing several rounds o chemothera-py, Angel began to lose her hair.Te transition was difficult or both Angel and Adam. Adam said he remembers the day she cut it off and began wearing wigs. Afer that point, Angel never saw hersel without a wig on.“She’d close her eyes to put on the wig and she’d never see her-sel bald,” Adam said. “It was a lot o work to make her realize it was OK and she was still beau-tiul and it didn’t matter what she looked like at that point in time.”On not-so-normal days, Adam said it was hard to not let his emotions get the best o him. In 2013, the amily trav-eled to Lawrence in preparation or Adam’s reshman year. An-gel received chemo the day be-ore and the day’s activities took a toll on her body. She passed out at one point during the day, Adam said.“I remember eeling really bad because I elt like it was my ault. Just being there and being able to be strong or her when she was not eeling hersel and not letting my emotion mess with that so that I could be strong or her,” Adam said. “It’s a sobering experience to say the least.”Angel had her last chemother-apy treatment the first week o CONTRIBUTED PHOTO Ulman Cancer Foundation charity fundraising bike team delivers Adam Reeves, second from right, a scholar-ship check outside Kansan Union.

Te presidents of the KU Panhellenic Association and Interfraternity Council gave reports on sexual assault and the task force was updated on Student Senate discussions. Members also talked about the future of the task force.Te Panhellenic Association and Interfraternity Council have come together to create a framework for additional sexual assault programming, which will be part of a new member education that each chapter will be able to person-alize. Te programs will ad-dress prevention and aware-ness of sexual assault, as well as how the house will deal with it.Te greek task force will be involved in reviewing these programs, as well as looking at other measures each house is taking to address sexual as-sault.“It will help hold us to a high-er standard by creating more programming, awareness and education,” said Maggie Young, president of the KU Panhellenic Association and a senior in Chi Omega from Olathe. “It also lets us be more self-governing, so there’s no excuse for letting it happen or not speaking up.”Young said she believes ad-dressing sexual assault at a chapter level will be the most effective way to promote change.“We’re a smaller group, and we recognize that we have the power to manage it within our own facilities,” Young said. “It’s necessary because what we’ve done in the past isn’t working, so we are taking an extra step to ensure we erad-icate the problem from the community.”Young said one of the goals of the task force is to show that the greek community is taking an active stance in the issue and will be accountable.“Tis way everyone can be aware of what we’re doing to tackle it,” Young said.Morgan Said, student body president and a senior in Pi Beta Phi from Kansas City, Mo., said action from within the greek community will en-courage discussion, educationand change.“Te greek community wants to ensure it keeps up with the rest of campus,” Saidsaid. — Edited by Emily Brown  What: Kansas Economic Policy Conference When: 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Where: Kansas Union About: A meeting to examine the impacts of the Affordable Care Act in Kansas.

Several months later, she had her final re-construction surgery, during which no cancer could be ound.“I never doubted that it was going to be gone,” Angel said. “I never had this overwhelm-ing ear that we were going to go in and get any other news besides that.”Adam said through it all, his mother’s strength is what al-lowed her to keep fighting.“I she wouldn’t have been able to handle as much, I don’t know how we would have been able to help boost her morale i she hadn’t helped hersel like she did,” Adam said. “In all honesty, she’s just a miracle.”Still cancer ree and celebrat-ing her youngest daughter’s second birthday this year, Angel admits the possibility o cancer coming back comes to mind rom time to time.

Chris FletcherMark Rohrbaugh Daisy Hill dorm construction is on schedule  KELSIE JENNINGS @kelcjennings  Construction o the two new reshman dorms on Daisy Hill is on schedule, said Director o Student Housing Diana Rob-ertson. Te project has been going smoothly and they hav-en’t had any setbacks.Construction began earlier this spring starting with the re-moval o the parking lot across rom Lewis and Hashinger halls. Since then, the steel structures o the two new halls have been put up, with con-struction workers currently completing the fifh and third floors o the north and south halls, respectively.Te main ocus is to get both o the halls raised to five stories and enclosed beore snow hits, Robertson said. Ten the work on the interior o the buildings will continue throughout win-ter.Students living on Daisy Hill, particularly in Hashinger and Lewis, have ront row seats to the construction progress and have noticed the changes since moving in two months ago. Some students have said they haven’t been too inconve-nienced by the project, but one minor annoyance is the noise.Jennie Kohl, a reshman rom Spring Hill, lives in Lewis in a room acing the construction. She said the construction usu-ally gets started between 7 and 8 a.m.“It’s gone by pretty ast, in my opinion, but it’s kind o annoy-ing,” Kohl said. “It wakes me up pretty early.” John Greenough, a resh-man rom ulsa, Okla., lives in Hashinger, but his room aces the campus so he hasn’t been bothered by the loud noises, but he’s heard other people complain.“It’s certainly inconvenient, but it’s not too big o a deal. I understand that stuff has to get done,” he said.Aside rom the noise and having Engel Road relocated, students on Daisy Hill have little to complain about with the dorm construction. Some students have mentioned the inconvenience o turned off water mains, which resulted in some students not being able to take showers or a short time last week. “Te entire building reeked because the toilets were down,” Greenough said o Hashinger.Robertson said the shut off was scheduled and announced and that the water had been shut off so they could connect the new water lines to the old ones.Te dorms are scheduled to be completed by July o 2015, Robertson said. Te dorms will be or reshmen only, but the common area that will connect the two halls will be open to all students. — Edited by Rob Pyatt  FROM CANCER PAGE 1 JAMES HOYT/KANSAN Green siding is attached to the exterior of the new residence halls on Daisy Hill on Oct. 17 in preparation for work during the winter.

Pollsters help contribute change to the political process  A s I was sitting in bed doing homework, I received a call from an unknown number with a Nevada area code. Though my boyfriend told me not to answer, I did anyway.“Good evening, I am calling on behalf of [some polling place]. Am I speaking with ‘Helayna Butchman?’” I love these phone calls. It doesn’t matter that they are asking the same questions, slightly rephrased for 12 to 15 minutes. It doesn’t matter that the person on the other end doesn’t know how to pronounce half of the names they’re asking for. Nine times out of 10, I will answer these phone calls because I think it’s important. Phone polls help politicians by determining how they’re doing, if their campaign tactics are working and what needs improvement in their campaign. If I say an attack ad orchestrated by Gov. Sam Brownback makes me less likely to vote for him in the upcoming election, that signals to his campaign that attack ads are not the way to go. Though I’m not voting for Brownback this November, discussing how his strategies make me unlikely to vote for him lets his team know that these tactics are not working for him. Phone polls have the potential of creating healthier campaigns and elections, which is good for everyone. Phone polls also help  voters and candidates anticipate what’s going to happen in an election, giving insight on whether or not to campaign harder. This allows constituents to be even more informed and involved in the democratic process.Phone polls can be a hassle, but the next time an unknown number calls you, try giving them a chance. It requires  virtually no work on your part and has the potential to benefit the political and electoral process. Helena Buchmann is a sophomore from Kansas City, Mo., studying global and international studies  By Helena Buchmann @helenabee Students should change campus drinking culture  I f you walk by almost any group of friends on campus Monday morning, you probably wouldn’t be surprised to hear them talking about their crazy, drunken weekend. In that conversation, you might hear them talk about what bar they went to or how they were so drunk that they “blacked out.” Why is getting intoxicated to the point of no memory an ordinary occurrence? Although we act like getting blackout drunk is normal, it isn’t.It seems that college students drink only to get drunk, whereas people out of college seem to have more responsible drinking habits. Although the majority of people on campus are full-time students, local bars are often packed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.Drinking until the point of vomiting or memory loss is dangerous, and should not be happening as much as it does on our campus. Around 90 percent of alcohol consumed by youth under the age of 21 is in the form of binge drinking, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While I am in full support of having a good time over the weekend with your friends, it isn’t safe for anyone to drink so much their senses become impaired.With sexual assault being a prevalent topic in the news recently, it is important to discuss alcohol’s involvement in sexual assault. Alcohol can be a common thread in these cases, and maybe there would be a decrease in sexual assault cases if alcohol weren’t a factor. That being said, just because someone chooses to drink an excessive amount does not mean they are giving informed consent to any sexual act.The University of Kansas is such a large school that it makes sense why our campus has such a large party scene. However, it is important for students to know their limits. There would be a lower percentage of students with alcohol poisoning, incidents of blacking out and possibly a decrease in sexual assault incidents.The University headed in the right direction by making freshmen take an online alcohol awareness class, however, all students could benefit from taking a similar course. It would allow students to keep the information fresh in their minds. It would also be a great demonstration of how the University is not only against minors consuming alcohol, but also how the University wants its students to be knowledgeable about the subject.
