    (MCT) The fight to raise the minimum wage caught a big wave of momentum this week as President Barack Obama endorsed a pay increase after voters pledged support in two key elections. The White House confirmed Thursday that Obama was backing an effort to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, which is higher than the $9-an-hour proposal he championed in his State of the Union address in February.

    The announcement comes just days after voters in New Jersey approved a $1 increase in the states minimum wage to $8.25 an hour.

    Two days after news of the find broke, officials in southern Germany revealed Tuesday that the hoard contains 1,406 pieces by masters whose names read like a whos who of Western art of the last 150 years.

    Chili cook off participants are eager for tailgaters to try their zesty chili on Saturday.

    Campus was packed Saturday with parents and students for Parents Day.

    Ash Aulds, a senior political science major, planned the event with the Student Life and Academic Enhancement Committee.

    The last home game is the last chance to see one of the most successful team of ULM seniors that have been through the university, Aulds said.

    Aulds was happy with the turnout, considering the cold temperature and rain.

    We wanted to give the parents a chance to see the university on game day, which is a different and more exciting environment than their other visits to the university, Aulds said.

    Devonte Grinstead, a senior health studies major, enjoyed the event despite the dismal weather.

    I was responsible for setting up and handing out t-shirts. We had a pretty large turn out, even with the rain, Grinstead said.

    Parents and chili hopefuls tailgated in the rain, waiting for the game to start.

    Marc Calhoun, a sophomore biology major, was excited by the enthusiasm of parents and students.

    Parents day was really successful, we had the most participants in the last five years. The rain dampened the mood, but we were thankful for those that came out, Calhoun said.

    Calhoun hopes to see the event continue to grow.

    ULM is getting out there. People recognize our name, and thats a great thing for the university. Even amidst all the budgetary problems, we still have people interested in us, Calhoun said.

    Shaniece Mitchell, a sophomore pre-dental hygiene major, enjoyed the game with her mother.

    Im excited to share my school pride with my mom and show her a different side of ULM, Mitchell said.

    Mitchell believes this is a great way for parents to see the everyday lives of their children.

    Parents Day success despite bad weather

    Prospective students flocked to Brown Auditorium for the annual Browse on the Bayou recruitment event on Saturday.

    With the largest prospective student attendance in ULM history, according to Susie Sparks, coordinator of recruitment services, the future of the university seems large and bright. Extra seating was provided for the surplus crowd.

    For many of the students this is a deal maker or breaker, Sparks said.

    The day began with registration and a quick tour of the campus.

    Seth Hall, Prep coordinator, was excited to see the faces of all of the future students as he directed tours and prep leaders.

    This is our biggest recruiting event and it takes a lot of work. Hall said.

    Hall was in charge of making sure the event suffered no problems, overseeing the execution of the event. Prep staffers lead tours and introduced themselves to the audience.

    President Nick Bruno greeted the high schools, welcoming them to ULM.

    Many of our prep staffers mentioned the friendly atmosphere of ULM, and while I wouldnt go so far to say there is never a bad day, the sun is always

    shining on ULM. Bruno said.A short presentation revealed the new

    Ask Ace feature that is a student and faculty staffed service that can answer any question a prospective Warhawk may have.

    After a general discussion students were allowed to speak with department heads about majors and classes.

    Were representing the dance department, and working on getting a major. Weve gotten a lot of interest so far, a lot of signatures, said Amanda Hikes, a sophomore biology major.

    Dallas Vanderpool, prospective student and high school senior, enjoyed the event.

    ULM seems like a wonderful place, and I really liked the campus, Vanderpool said. As an undecided major the event opened my eyes to new majors.

    Vanderpool was excited by the possibilities ULM presented, and considered some majors that were unique to ULM.

    I can really see myself being a Warhawk. It gave me a good idea of what college is going to be like. I loved it, Vanderpool said.
