Marvel Studios has done it again with the
sequel to another major comic book turned
movie. Ghost Rider: S.O.V was directed by
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Box Of
fice Mojo.Co. reported that the film collected
over $22.1 million its opening weekend with
worldwide sales over $42.1 million.
Nicolas Cage returns starring as the anti-
hero Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider alongside
Idris Elba co-starring as Moreau. The movie
takes place in Eastern Europe and starts off
with mercenaries attacking a secret monas
tic order, searching for a boy. Moreau (Elba)
works for the ancient church and aids in pro
tecting the boy. Although the boy and his
mother escape for the moment, Moreau be
lieves that the only one capable of ensuring'
the boy’s safety is The Ghost Rider. Johrmy
Blaze (Cage) has embraced the phrase “There
are some demons you just can't run from,”
but he still finds himself running. As with the
events of thefirst movie. Blaze blames him
self everyday for the mistake of “Making the
Deal” to save his father’s life. Eventually he
is discovered by Moreau and he gives him
an offer he can't refuse: removing the curse
of the Ghost Rider. As Johrmy gets closer to
removing his curse, he starts to realize how
much he may need it. On his journey he en
counters way more demons then his own;
fighting thugs, mercenaries, and even facing
the one who gave him the Ghost Rider curse
in the first place.
This movie is full of action, surprising
comedy, and will keep your interest just as
the first film did. If you’re a comic book fan,
this is another great part of the long line of
superheroes brought to life on the big screen.

Rumors have been circulating about con
struction on campus and what’s being built.
The Voice interviewed Fayetteville State
University Chancellor James A. Anderson to
get the scoop on the status of all the construc
tion projects on campus and when we can ex
pect them to be finished.
The Strategic Plan
Chancellor Anderson said the multi-year
(2008-2014) strategic plan’s goal is to im
prove student learning, university diver
sity and collective responsibility. The plan
includes both capital projects as well as
improvements to academic programs and
university life. FSU has hired nationally rec
ognized officials for their specializations to
help improve the overall FSU experience.
For instance. Dr. Jason DeSousa, from Mor
gan State University, has 10 years of experi
ence in the field of higher education. He is
now the Vice Chancellor of Retention with
a concentration on black males. Chancellor
Anderson said graduation and retention rates
are one of the top priorities in the strategic
More information about The Strategic Plan

The Science and Technology Building
In November 2010, some of the Greek
plots were relocated in order to create the
new 62,000 square foot Science and Technol
ogy Building. The new science building will
become the permanent home to the STEM
(Science, technology, engineering and math
ematics) program. It will also house class
rooms for the chemistry, forensics science,
and computer departments. The building will
have two four-story wings connected by a
“Discovery Forum." The building will also
offer a cafe that will be accessible to students
and faculty. The building is scheduled to be
completed by fall 2012.

the New Renaissance Hall, began in Septem
ber 2011. Students can look forward to this
project being finished and available for occu
pation in the fall 2012 semester. According
to Metecon’s website, the creators of New
Renaissance’s structural design, the building
will be three stories with 370 bedrooms. It
will feature different suite style living rang
ing from two bedrooms to four bedroom
suites. There will also be study areas, meet
ing space, labs, laundry facilities and kitch
ens. The estimated cost for room and board
for the new dormitory has yet to be released.
Rudolph Jones Student Center
FSU’s plans for continued growth include
projects lined up to help beautify the campus
and improve campus life. Currently, the plan
ning and blueprinting for the extension to the
Rudolph Jones Student Center is underway.
The parking lot in the back of the student
center will be taken out to put on an addition,
which will include a larger dining facility, ac
cording to Chancellor Anderson. In addition,
the student center renovations will include
a ballroom to host events on campus. There
will also be office space included for the stu
dents, he said.
The current dining facility was only de
signed to feed 1,600 people so the expansion
is greatly needed. Chancellor Anderson said.
Student center renovations are expected to be
completed in 2014.
Health and Wellness Center
Chancellor Anderson said a Health and
Wellness Complex for students and faculty is
also part of the overall strategic plan.
“There’s really no where for faculty, staff
and students to work out here and most cam
puses have something like that,” Chancellor
Anderson said. “In order to start a wellness
effort on this campus, we’ll build a new
health and wellness complex.”
To strive to be a first choice institution in
the UNC school system, FSU will continue
to grow and better meet the needs of the stu
dent body. Look forward to more growth,
more improvements and better campus life!
