March 22nd Interview with President Spencer

President Clayton Spencer’s return to WRBC airwaves, as interviewed by Alfred Russo ’15 and Jordana Gluckow ’16 to answer a variety questions on the direction of the institution, and some less arduous ones as well.

Questions Posed:

What’s your favorite and least favorite part about Bates?

If you could magically change one thing about Bates what would it be?

How does the opinion of the student body impact your decision-making process?

Do you think that the senior gift is a referendum on the Bates experience and the direction of the institution?

When enough space becomes available does the college plan on eliminating the option for students to live off campus?

Batesies have long contended that the college’s strongest asset is the people that make up this community. With that in mind, how does personnel restructuring intersect with that value?

What’s your favorite food at Commons or the Den?

With the prioritization of new initiatives like Purposeful Work, how is the college tackling other longstanding issues like the upcoming retirement of a significant amount of faculty or the fact that some courses are frequently overenrolled?

Where is your favorite place to hangout at Bates?

Does the college plan to create much needed parking? Can you comment on the Lewiston ordinance that requires Bates students/faculty/staff to park on campus despite the city’s inability to legally bar anyone from properly parking on a public street?

Is the college making a concerted effort to improve community relations. If so, how?

When was the last time you got a speeding ticket?

Do you plan on reforming the disciplinary system that students undergo which is currently a three strike policy?

Since we are now under a new student government leadership and system, what do you see as the ideal relationship between the administration and the student government?

Since your last interview with WRBC two years ago, what has been your most valuable contribution to Bates College?

TRIVIA NIGHT 2016!

February 5, 2016, 8:00pm

WRBC

TRIVIA NIGHT will be 2/5/16. GET READY. 8PM-8AM Do not proceed if: you are faint of heart, spirit, fervor, or funk. SH!TS ABOUT TO GET REAL Rules of the GAME: **A MUST READ** To participate in Trivia Night, you need a TEAM. Said team can have as many people as you want, but there are no limits. Teams greater than seven are recommended. Sign ups will be during the first hour of the competition, 8 – 9 PM. *To register, call in at the provided number (this will come later). Also necessary: a knack for figuring out the obscure songs and trivia questions that WRBC throws at you. Each team is evaluated according to how many points they win. There are three ways to receive POINTZ: 1) TRIVIA: While tuning in to 91.5 FM all night, you will hear all sorts of songs, from pop hits to obscure Chinese folk ballads, and each song has a corresponding trivia question. Using the special trivia night telephone number, call in (before the song ends!) and tell us the title of the song, the artist who is performing it, and the answer to the trivia question. Each of those answers are worth 1 point, so every song is an opportunity to get 3 points. 2) The real excitement begins with PHYSICAL CHALLENGES. So maybe you didn’t know in which state it was illegal for mourners at a wake to eat more than three sandwiches? Well, luckily, you can earn more points through a random assortment of Physical Challenges, which are announced on the hour, and then performed on the half hour at the WRBC studio. Winners of Physical Challenges are given 15 points, 2nd Place 10 points, and 3rd Place 5 points. These challenges are judged by trivia night staff. 3) Make sure you’re paying attention, you don’t want to miss: Random points events. Because we’re nice people, sometimes points will be offered for certain random thangs. These could really help you out, especially if you’re creative and listening carefully. So be on the look out! At the end of all the many hours of radio, trivia, and challenges, each team must perform a skit assigned during the last hour of the broadcast. This final challenge holds a very high point value, so if you want to win, make sure you make it entertaining and ingenious. Once all that’s happened, a winner is declared, prizes are awarded and it’s really early in the morning. WRBC officially recommends sleeping.
