New students in the know: Raider Rush


by: Chelsea Ratterman, assistant editor

With the school year getting ready to begin, new students will be introduced to the campus for the first time. In order to help familiarize them with the campus and student life a Student/Family Orientation Session, or “Raider Rush,” is to be held from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., Friday, August 19, at the Communication Center. Topics discussed will include a range of services offered on campus and general college information. After the sessions, lunch will be provided in the Student Center Main Dining Room, as well as inflatable and live music by Dante and the Hawks in the Campus Mall from 12 p.m.-2 p.m.
Dante and the Hawks, Tulsa based pop/rock band has played here before, when they headlined the Rose State Spring Fest on April 14. Dante and the Hawks is comprised of Dante Schmitz, vocalist; Teddy Scott, guitarist; Promo Dave, bassist and Matt Thompson, drummer. A self-titled EP was released in 2008, and their new EP, “Into the Wild,” was released in May.
“The Hawks have played for several student events at Rose State and we always seem to have a lot of fun,” Dante Schmitz said, when asked via e-mail about their experiences.
