By; Courtney Taylor On January 13th, about 4:00 pm locally, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the impoverished Caribbean island of Haiti causing the collapse of a hospital, a horde of stores, homes, and schools and caused widespread panic. The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere is prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes, which each have resulted in the deaths of thousands of people. All across the world relief programs have been implemented. Fayetteville State University’s Student Government Association arranged a candlelight vigil in support of the victims of the earthquake. Broncos are raising money and will combine the funds with proceeds raised from a Student Activities Council themed dance January 15th. The funds will be sent to the American Red Cross. The Epsilon Beta Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Incorporated also sponsored a successful clothing and shoe drive. As a historically black university, many FSU students feel a special kinship with the people of Haiti. “Haiti was the first slave inhabited country to gain independence,” said Masceline Petitlubin, holding back tears.

FSU Raises the Stakes Introducing.. .Mr. Marketing Minor By: Francine Dunbar As the business program thrives at Fayetteville State University, an innovative sector branches out. While not entirely new, the Marketing Minor has previously been open only to students enrolled in the business program. By fall of 2010, the minor will be opened to all students. Sirrom Williams, Student Activities Council Program Director and a senior Mass Communications major at Fayetteville State University, says he was baffled and heartbroken when he asked his advisor about a minor in marketing only to find out that it was only offered to business majors. “It seemed like the department was quite inconsiderate, but I am glad that changes are going to be made. The program will definitely be a spark on anyone’s resume, regardless of the major.” Courses for the Marketing Minor are currently being offered by the School of Business and Economics, which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business- one of the most prestigious and rigorous accrediting programs. Currently, less than one- third of U.S. colleges’ and universities’ business programs, and only 15% of the world’s business programs, have AACSB accreditation.
