Henderson professor to talk heroes, superheroes at ASMSA lecture

Henderson professor to talk heroes, superheroes at ASMSA lecture

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — Henderson State University psychology professor Dr. Travis Langley believes comic book superheroes have the ability to teach us about heroes in real life.

Langley will share some of his knowledge about the subject at the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts Science and Café Lecture on Thursday. He is the featured speaker at the event, which will be held at 7 p.m. at Kollective Coffee and Tea, 110 Central Ave. He will speak on “Psychology and Superheroes,” including how superheroes are good stand-ins for the study of what makes real-life heroes.

His lecture will focus on several particular superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America and Batman. He called them some of the most down-to-earth superheroes, because they don’t have superpowers. They have very human qualities that make them more relatable to real-life individual, according to Langley.

Alcoa grant funds new dock at biology field station

Alcoa grant funds new dock at biology field station

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. – A $25,000 grant from the Alcoa Foundation will fund the construction of a boat dock at Henderson State University’s Simonson Biological Field Station.

The ADA accessible dock will provide convenient access to navigable shoreline and waterways to collect and study water samples and plant and animal specimens at DeGray Lake.

“The dock will allow students and researchers easy, fast, and safe entry into both our pontoon boat or jon boat,” said Dr. Troy Bray, associate professor of biology. “Without the dock, it is a labor and time intensive task that involves using the station’s tractor since the dirt ramp is not suitable for vehicles to launch and load boats.”

When the lake is low, students must tread through knee-deep mud to reach and climb aboard the boat, Bray said.

“Of course, this makes it impossible for some students to participate. The dock will be fully ADA compliant assuring all students the opportunity to join in field work.”

Extra security after vandalism on OBU campus


ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) - Arkadelphia police were forced to patrol Ouachita Baptist University campus after rivalry pranks led to the arrest of seven Henderson State Students on Wednesday. 

After those arrests and the vandalism, OBU isn't taking any chances. This well-known rivalry between OBU and Henderson has been going for 120 years. In the past, there's also been extra security measures at both schools the week before the game, but they are usually more about classic fun. On Wednesday, November 11 however, that rivalry went a little too far.
