Junior Kevin Carman is a business major at Sacred Heart University, who recently started a hat company called Locals Only LI.

Carman was inspired to start the company when he bought a trucker hat in Montana with the outline of the state on it with locals only printed on the back.

“I said to myself, why don’t I take this concept and bring it to life in Long Island. And that’s where we are now,” said Carman, who is from Malverne, NY.

Although the company began in January, Carman had the intention of starting the company for a while.

“I just woke up over winter break and was like, yeah it’s time. I need something new and I need to do something exciting that I would want to do and here we are,” said Carman.

He doesn’t just run the company on his own.

Junior Ben Field is the operations manager who has helped him in many ways such as coming up with designs for the hats.

The large Long Island student population at Sacred Heart has helped his company take off.

“If it wasn’t for this school, I would not be where I am today,” said Carman.

The demand for the hats has been increasing. He is in the process of ordering more hats for his new 631 collection which does not have a release date yet.

Even though Carman is selling hats, he has no plans to stretch into the field of clothing.

“I want to sell lifestyles. I want the photographs and the fashion that goes with it,” said Carman.

Carman also didn’t start his business for the money, he started it purely for the aspect of art.

“We want it to be more than just a hat,” said Carman. “It’s not just a hat, it’s more than a hat. It’s connecting people together which is what I really want.”

One of his main goals for his company is to keep the hats at an affordable price.

“The goals of the company are to provide a product that is the best to my standards, but one that is affordable. We want to deliver something that is the best quality as possible and you’re like, wow that did not break the bank,” said Carman

The hats are currently selling at $18 to $20. He also tries to price his hats with his customers in his mind.

“I want them to wear it,” said Carman. “I want them to buy it. I want them to buy not just one, I want them to buy five because I want all their family to have one.”

Carman also plans to try and give back to the community through his hats.

“We have plans for the camo hat. Hopefully down the line we can be able to give back to the troops of Long Island. I have an idea for a breast cancer hat. We have a bunch of ideas for ways we can give back,” said Carman. “The only reason why we have made it this far is because everyone else has been so gracious in supporting our business. So why can’t we give back to them,” said Carman.

He also thought it would be an interesting idea to implement a pre-order button on his website so people can get their hands on the latest design before it even comes out.

One of the main reasons he thinks his hats are selling so rapidly is because he is going out and making a one on one presence with his customers.

Carman also tries to have a big presence on social media. Even though his company has Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat, he feels that Instagram is the best way for his company to grow.

“I love Instagram, I have a good following on it, Ben has a good following on it. We both like to take photographs. If you want to tell a story, you tell it in pictures,” said Carman.

The Locals Only LI Instagram page has only existed since April 3 and already has 408 followers.

Carman also has plans to start doing giveaways on Instagram as well.

For more information, you can go to @localsonlyli on Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat. They also have a website called https://www.localsonlyli.com/.

“It’s going to be a long journey ahead of us and we know that. I’m ready for the ride, I’m ready to lock it down. There is no stopping Locals Only LI,” said Carman.

Sacred Heart Hosts Its 28th Annual Discovery Gala

Sacred Heart University honored benefactors Frank and Marisa Martire at the 28th annual Discovery Gala April 21, 2017.

On Friday, April 21 Sacred Heart University held its 28th Annual Discovery Gala.

This year’s event was held at Sacred Heart’s new West Campus in the General Electric Guest House.

All of the proceeds and funds raised at the gala support the university-based academic scholarship programs. In its 28 years, the Discovery Gala has raised millions of dollars to help students obtain their degree in higher education.

“In my opinion, the best part about the gala is the fact that it supports university scholarship funds so that our passionate, dedicated students are able to achieve their dreams and beyond,” said Kylie Martin, staff member of the Advancement Department and Pioneer Club coordinator.

In honor of their generosity, involvement and dedication to Sacred Heart, the honorees of this year’s gala were Frank and Marisa Martire. The Martire’s have previously been honored by the Board of Trustee’s when they chose to name the new Business Building after the couple.

Frank Martire graduated from Sacred Heart with a degree in Economics in 1969. The couple has had a financial impact to the university with their time and effort.

The Martire’s are among the school’s biggest donors and supporters, and beyond that, Frank is a member of the Board of Trustee’s who actively works on the betterment and improvement of the university.

“Tonight was a great night for multiple reasons. It was a great celebration of the Martire’s and all they have done for this institution, while also introducing all of our guests to our brand new West Campus and its beautiful Guest House,” said Dr. Petillo.

In honoring the Martire’s and all they have done, the organizers of this gala hoped to show other guests how important and impactful donations and assistance can be and inspire them to follow in the footsteps of the Martire’s.

“This year’s Discovery Gala really brought new life to the West Campus and gave guests a true-feeling of Sacred Heart,” said Petillo.

The 28th Discovery Gala was Speakeasy-themed. Speakeasy clubs were made famous in the 1920’s during the prohibition era, where it was illegal to sell and consume alcohol. What classified these bars as speakeasy was their hidden entrances and discrete locations, which allowed these places to remain a secret and stay open.

The five-floor Guest House is located in the very back of the West Campus and was built into a hill. The only visible aspect of the house is the lobby which has four elevators and took guests down to the very bottom floor where the ballroom was located. The speakeasy theme was chosen to show off Sacred Heart’s new hidden gem.

The night would be comprised of various food options throughout all three-courses, flapper-waitresses, and a club-like ambiance, including lights and booth-style seating. The event would conclude with a music performance.

The Gala began at 6 p.m. and the music performance went on at 8 p.m. This year’s performer was former professional athlete-turned-musician, Bernie Williams. Williams was a professional baseball player for the New York Yankee’s from 1991-2006 until retirement, when he then indulged in his other passion, music.

“We honored two truly philanthropic champions in Frank and Marisa Martire, most importantly to raise scholarship funds to help our students obtain a Sacred Heart degree,” said Anne Whitman, Special Events Coordinator in the department of University
Advancement.

Whitman said that with each coming year they exceed their rising fundraising goal.

“We surpassed our fundraising goal for a second year in a row, raising just under $900,000, all because of the generosity of so many university and community friends, corporate sponsors, alumni, parents, faculty, and staff,” said Whitman.

Student Creates His Own App: Bar-Eeze

By Anna Finn

Staff Reporter

Junior marketing major Peter Siegel’s idea to create an application all started after he took an introduction to business class his freshman year.

Siegel’s first idea was to make an app that would show how busy different locations on campus were to the students, such as if there were any seats open in the library or treadmills available in the gym.

“My friends and I were tired of paying for Uber’s to bars and realizing they were empty or too crowded,” said Siegel. “I remember thinking to myself, I wish I had a crystal ball to see how these places were before we left the house.”

He took his original idea and decided he wanted to apply it to bars and began to make his app Bar-Eeze.

“The app Waze inspired me since it is an app where the users helped one another to avoid traffic on the roads. This concept is similar to mine but with bars,” said Siegel.

To create Bar-Eeze, his first step was getting the money to develop it.

“I spoke to investors who loved the idea and wanted to help me make it happen,” said Siegel. “I didn’t have any coding experience so I knew I would have to hire a developer to do it for me.”

Siegel interviewed numerous different developers, determined to find who was the best fit for him.

“I was confident with a developer called BlueLabel Labs and contracts were signed and we started the design stage,” said Siegel.

He was responsible for the whole design of the app. He created wireframes, which are images that exhibit the functional elements of the app, to give the developer an idea of what he wanted.

“After the design came development and different builds of the app. We had 23 builds before we launched on the app Store,” said Siegel.

It took Siegel about two years to create the app, due to pausing the project for a few months to get more investors on board.

The now launched app Bar-Eeze is a social networking platform that helps its users view the current status of any bar.

It introduces Vibe Badges, which is a quick way to view or select the bar’s current atmosphere, such as the gender ratio, the line outside, wait time for a drink, and more.

“I advertise the app on social media mostly. But there is a lot more to come,” said Siegel.

With this app, you can invite your friends out and then they can instantly receive your message asking them to join you at your current check-in location, as long as they become a Bar-Eeze user.

In the live chat section, you can connect with other users at the same venue or see what others are saying at the bar they’re at by adding pictures to the chat or comments.

“So far I haven’t really marketed it fully yet. We have a huge update coming this summer that is going to make the app much more desirable,” said Siegel. “Once this update comes out I’m going to market the app like crazy.”

Siegel’s short-term goal for Bar-Eeze is to get college students all over America using his app to plan their nights out.

“My long term goal would be to be noticed by Google and possibly get an offer to buy my company,” said Siegel.

Siegel’s advice to those who would like to create an app as well is to think out your idea completely. He explains that it is important to play the devils advocate with yourself.

“There are a lot of little things you need to work out before even thinking about development,” said Siegel. “It is a lot of work, but seeing an idea come to life makes it all worth it.”

Men’s Rugby Team Hosts Red Cross Blood Drive

Staff Reporter

The Sacred Heart University men’s rugby team, otherwise known as the X-Men, hosted a Red Cross blood drive on Thursday, April 13. The event took place from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the University Commons (UC).

The blood drive was open for not only students and faculty, but to the entire Bridgeport community. Locals from around the area showed their support by attending the event and donating blood for a good cause.

“It’s a good way to get people involved with the club and a good way to get people to donate blood, so it’s a win-win situation,” said junior Nicholas D’Angelo.

The men’s rugby Red Cross blood drive is usually held once every semester in the UC.

“Everyone participates and it’s actually good for us as a team because it keeps a mandatory setting on things, as well as builds chemistry within the team. It’s cool to see people come and support not only the blood drive but the team as well,” said freshman Jack Connelly.

The blood drive has been a tradition within the club organization for about 25 years.

“It is important for our team to do something to give back as an organization on campus and every year it stands as an important event that we put a high priority on. It is a high trafficked event due to the large amount of people coming in and out to give blood,” said junior Michael Vozzella.

The event is sponsored by the American Red Cross and is set up to bring the community together for a common goal, which is to donate blood to save lives.

The X-Men take pride in not only hosting and working the event, but also participating in giving blood.

“It’s a good way to help out the school, it shows that we mean more than ourselves in a way. We always try to find different ways to give back,” said sophomore Anthony Sarno. “Although I did not participate in this specific one, I do donate blood for my fire department back home so I have experience with an event like this.”

According to the team, the event was a huge success in the sense that they had a mix of people show up to donate and that it ran smoothly.

“We always have a very good turnout, around 100-150 people per event between students, faculty, and locals. The team itself is there for a couple hours and throughout the day people come in and out to support the event,” said D’Angelo.

According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in America needs blood.

“I was nervous at first to give blood due to it being my first time, but the red cross nurses made me comfortable knowing that my actions would help benefit the lives of others,” said sophomore Brad Cingolani.

Growing up in Scotch Plaines, NJ, Rob Coloney had always loved sports. He would watch games and mute them to talk over the announcers so he could practice.

This passion for sports led to his job as a sports broadcaster for the New York Yankees while pursuing his bachelor’s degree from Sacred Heart University in Communications and Media Studies.

He started his job with the baseball team after his freshman year of college when they hired him as an intern, which eventually led to a full time position.

“It was fun and exciting, but not the fun and exciting thing I was after. I was after making a difference,” said Coloney.

In 2012, Coloney left full time and came back to Sacred Heart to work in financial aid and to get his MBA.

“I left because it was not fulfilling. It was not all about me and it was all about them. I was not doing something on this planet that I could be happy with,” said Coloney.

Currently, Coloney is the Director of Career Placement for the Jack Welch College of Business as well as a professor in the School of Communications and Media Arts.

Coloney helps students with their resumes as well as finding internships and full time jobs.

“An employer will look at a resume for 30 seconds and decide if they want to keep looking at it. So, make sure your dates and everything are consistent,” said Coloney.

As a professor he teaches Intro to Production and Sports Broadcasting.

“I get to work with students everyday whether it is in the office or in the classroom. Sometimes I let the students come and just talk, I feel like a psychiatrist sometimes,” said Coloney.

Although he is no longer with the Yankees, he still continues his passion for sports by working with Sacred Heart Athletic Communications by doing play-by-play and public address announcing.

Coloney is also a Varsity girls’ basketball coach at Wilton High School in Wilton, Conn. He started his coaching job there as an assistant coach in the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 seasons. He has been the head coach for the past two years.

“I coach life and if we learn some basketball, great. Hopefully, we can win a few more games along the way,” said Coloney

He got involved with coaching when he was a senior in high school by coaching his sisters fifth grade team.

During his sophomore year at Sacred Heart he reached out to some local towns and found a youth team that needed help and eventually a high school job opened up.

“On the high school level you get to work with students as they are figuring out where they are going to go. If I can have positive impact on one person in a bunch of different areas of my life then I am doing what I need to do in this world,” said Coloney.

LaundryView is Now at Sacred Heart

By Fallon Bevino

Staff Reporter

Is laundry room hold-up one of your biggest frustrations as an on-campus resident? Well if so, have no fear because LaundryView is now at Sacred Heart.

LaundryView is a website that allows students to check the occupancy of washers and dryers before making the long haul down to the laundry room.

“LaundryView was developed in response to requests for greater control over laundry activities. Since many people tend to do their laundry during similar time periods, it results in busy laundry rooms,” states the LaundryView website.

Many students believe that laundry as a college student isn’t an easy task.

“It got to the point where I had to set aside a few hours just for laundry because I knew, from experience, that it would take that long just find an open washing machine,” said freshman Jennie Boisvert. “Between school and being an athlete, I’m busy as it is, so having to worry about laundry is the worst.”

The addition of LaundryView to the dorms is a convenience added to everyday life for some students who require laundry services on campus.

“I’m so excited about using LaundryView, it’s such a cool feature that will save many students, so much time and effort,” said Christian. “Not many would think that laundry is such a hassle, but when I find myself spending more time worrying about when I’ll be able to do the next load of laundry, than I do worrying about my homework, that’s a problem.”

On the site, there is a list of the residential halls and under each one there is every laundry room located in that building.

Next to each laundry room location, the availability is listed as (#W/#D). So, if you check the site and see that your laundry room has (2W/2D), you’re in the clear because two washers and two dryers are available.

Christian Witness, Jorge Bergoglio, Merton Hall, Seton Hall, Park Ridge, Roncalli Hall and Scholars Commons are the seven dorms listed on the site. Residents living in these dorms are able to use the site to monitor the status of washers and dryers at this time.

Pioneer Gardens and Oakwood are not currently listed on the site.

“Last year, as I was complaining about doing laundry and the trouble it caused me, my friend asked me if I used LaundryView. Obviously, I said no, so he explained it to me and I instantly wished it would come to Sacred Heart,” said sophomore Liv Wunder.

After giving the site a shot, Wunder was hooked.

“All I had to do was look on the website, check if a washer was open, and since it was, I went down and did my laundry. It turned, what was a three-hour ordeal, into only one hour,” said Wunder.

LaundryView is currently available for student-use.

Club Spotlight: Business Administration Club

Staff Reporter

The Business Administration Club at Sacred Heart tries to create and provide an academic and social environment for students interested in business.

The club allows for their members to explore career opportunities in the corporate world, increase their knowledge of current business events and discuss relevant business student issues.

They benefit their members by allowing them to choose designs and pricing for their apparel orders, while also educating them on professional skills that are used in the business industry. For example, they incorporate alumni who work on Wall Street to provide their members with advice and content that will help them with their respective career paths.

“In addition, we provide opportunities to volunteer with Junior Achievement, a local nonprofit, where students teach elementary children business and entrepreneurial concepts,” said junior James Chiavaro, president of the club.

The club strives on accepting all business majors, taking into consideration every aspect of business. It incorporates marketing, finance and other areas showing how each play a role in the management decision.

The club tries to meet twice a month, which is every other week due to each student’s schedules. At the meetings, they discuss current events or how to pursue internships.

As well as discuss ways to raise money, such as selling merchandise to make money for their club.

They use the money to fundraise trips for the club and plan other fundraising events that are run through the Jack  Welch College of Business.

“We are trying to organize a dodge ball tournament in April. We also have a Jack Welch College of Business jacket order running right now,” said Chiavaro.

The Business Administration Club encourages people to join if they have any interest in business at all. Their club overlaps many disciplines and can be applicable to any career choice.

“People should join the club because it has a lot to offer, but we definitely need some more members. The more people that we have, the better fundraising we can do, as well as promote ourselves around campus,” said junior Tori Oates.

The meetings are held in the Frank and Marisa Martire Business and Communications Center. It is student-run by their advisor Professor Tuvana Rua. Rua is the assistant professor in the management department.

“My experience being in the business club has been a great time,” said senior David Dechent-Robertin, vice president of the club. “I realized my passion for teaching business topics, which is something I would never have done if it weren’t for this club. It also helped me realize my passion for business and management, to help figure out what I want to do after I graduate.”

Mastering Presentations With Katie Burke

Staff Reporter

On Tuesday, April 4, Katie Burke came to Sacred Heart University to present a master class on presentation skills for public relations.

Burke is a senior strategist and global chief of Staff at Edelman, a global communication marketing firm, and has nearly 20 years of experience at the highest levels of government and business.

“I became very close to the business and some of their clients at Edelman, it is an amazing place to work,” said Burke.

After taking two years off for personal reasons, Burke was very grateful that Richard Edelman had requested her to come back.

“I have a young daughter who needed me to be around a little more, so the time was right to take a two year break from Edelman,” said Burke.

Burke genuinely loves client work and engaging with them on a variety of different issues.

“No two days are ever the same and because we are a global company we are dealing with clients across the spectrum and really around the world,” said Burke. “It is a tremendous opportunity to partner with our clients as they communicate across a variety of channels.”

Following her hard work and graduate school, Burke started answering the telephones in congressman Chris Shay’s office.

“A lot of people, including my parents, thought this was a very peculiar thing to do and I absolutely loved it. I found that the more that I learned about policy and communication, the more I wanted to be involved,” said Burke.

Burke made it a point to always arrive earlier and leave later than everyone, as well as work hard to understand issues top to bottom, that way she could have a useful opinion and advocate for a particular point of view.

“It was really one of those circumstances of a lot of hard work, a lot of luck and then a lot of meeting some really amazing people who were incredibly helpful to me throughout my career,” said Burke.

Subsequently to her job on Capital Hill for four and a half years, Burke briefly worked at NBC in New York, then moved to the White House after president George Bush’s re-election campaign in 2003.

After working in the White House, Burke went out to California for 10 months and then moved back to New York when Rudy Giuliani ran for president.

Working hard is what led her to achieve and succeed in her field and eventually make it to the highest levels of government and business where she is now.

“There were times where I was frustrated by the pace, I wanted it to move faster,” said Burke. “Lucky for me, campaigns move pretty quickly so I had a relatively short amount of time of a really interesting and varied exposure to a variety of different policies and communication opportunities and challenges.”

Although it consists of a lot of traveling and the work is very time consuming, Burke explained that she chose this field because she loves talking to people and explaining things to them.

“I love the puzzle of trying to simplify how you talk about something that is very complicated to people so they can not only understand what I’m talking about, but how it impacts their lives,” said Burke.

Burke warned what people should expect going into this field, and that is for no one to expect they will be guaranteed a seat at the strategic decision making table—it has to be earned.

“I think people should expect to work hard but also find tremendous reward in the value that you can bring to a business and political campaign,” said Burke.

Coming Soon: Samsung Galaxy S8 Smartphone

By Anna Finn

Staff Reporter

On Tuesday, April 21 Samsung will be making their newest smartphone, Galaxy S8 and S8+, available for purchase.

According to Fox News, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are Samsung’s first phones to no longer have the standard home button and instead have it built into the screens using pressure-sensitive hardware and software.

“I’ve only ever had a Samsung smartphone and currently have the Galaxy smartphone,” said sophomore Ashley Darling. “Samsung smartphones have never failed me and I’m so excited for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ because it has amazing new features that even the iPhone doesn’t have.”

As reported by Fox News, Samsung hopes to turn its fortunes around with their new smartphone offerings after a deplorable twelve months of exploding phones, a plummeting stock price, and executive turnover.

“I think these new phones could help Samsung’s bad reputation if they actually execute the way they’re saying they will because they really need their consumer’s trust back,” said senior Kylie Calandra.

Coming out as a waterproof smartphone, the Galaxy S8 is said to start at $750 and the Galaxy S8+ at $850, according to Tech Radar.

Some students are under the impression that the price for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are starting at an unreasonable price. They reasoned that it should be lowered considering the circumstances of Samsung’s previous smartphone release.

“The new Galaxy S8 and S8+ sound really nice and all, but I don’t think I could ever get one after their issues of explosive phones,” said junior Shannon Mooney. “I’d rather not risk my chances of that happening and stick to my iPhone.”

The newest smartphone allow users to unlock their phones with facial recognition and iris recognition, as stated in Fox News.

The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch screen while the S8+ has a 6.2-inch screen, according to Tech Radar. Both include wireless charging convertible but the Galaxy S8 has a 3000mAh battery, while the S8+ has 3,500mAh battery.

“Those who don’t typically like Samsung’s smartphones will soon come around to them when they realize how substantially better the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are than the phones they have,” said Darling.

Both smartphones have the same 12MP camera and encompass a multi-frame image feature so that more than one shot can be taken at a time for a better photo, as said by Tech Radar.

“I’ve never had a Samsung smartphone but from the reviews I’ve heard, the new ones they are releasing are supposed to be refined, cultured, and very desirable. It is their attempt at gaining old and new consumers after their last release adversity,” said sophomore Bridget Adams.

According to Fox News, despite Apple’s newest approach of discarding the headphone jack, Samsung’s new smartphones are continuing to incorporate their headphone jack with a 3.5 connecter and a set of AKG headphones.

“I’m very hopeful these new smartphones will be a success for Samsung and if it is, it will help their reputation significantly,” said Calandra.

Tell Us Your Story: Sam MacPherson

Sophomore Sam MacPherson, an aspiring musician, was a member of the Division I soccer team at Sacred Heart University. His father and brother are both musicians, and Sam seems to be following in their footsteps.

MacPherson was on the team for the past two years. He gained his passion for soccer from his grandfather who played professionally in Italy.

Recently he has decided to take his focus away from the sport and pursue a music career.

“Music and soccer have been two really big parts of my life, but I am kind of ready for music to solely take over,” said MacPherson.

He is part of a duo at home and often does performances at Sacred Heart.

“Soccer is probably going to be limited but it will always be something I love and enjoy. Music is something I want to do and pursue as a career,” said MacPherson.

He writes the lyrics in all of his music, and he also produces his own music videos.

“Pursuing music as a career is a scary thing because a lot of people always question that career choice; but I think the first step in achieving a career in music is knowing that you actually want to go after that career,” said MacPherson

Being in a duo with his best friend from home is a great experience for him. Although they attend two different schools, they do come together as if they were never separated.

“As of right now it is just me in the studio recording my own stuff and putting stuff out there on my own, but when we get together we make songs as a band,” he said.

The process of writing his own music is therapeutic for him.

“It is a way for me to express a lot of things on my mind and is my way of getting it out there. It provides a relaxing and goofy environment, while doing something I love,” said MacPherson.

He loved being on the team with a great group of guys but it turned out it was just was not his thing.

Be sure to check out MacPherson’s profile on SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/sammacpherson-625340700, as he has some new song releases as well as an album coming out soon.

“As of last night I released a song called ‘In Their Own,’ which you can find on my SoundCloud under my name. My EP, which is pretty much a shortened album, is going to follow which is what I’ve been doing in the studio recording,” said MacPherson.
