Seniors Looking back Memories. A door to the past. The greatest joy j and contentment can be experienced in remember- ing old friends and the time spent with them. Some people remember the good, some the bad. Some have advice for the freshmen, while others wish the freshmen would give them some advice. . Leslie Alexander, senior from Hurst, viewed her years at ACU as a time for improving herself. "I leave here with achievements I never thought I could accomplish. I'm graduating with a degree, I have lived four years on my own, and most im- portantly I've gained independence and con- fidence in myself and my abilities." But why ACU? A question familiar to many a student and one many a student has asked of himself. What does ACU have that other schools don't? "ACU is like any other place," insisted Wes Thorn- ton, senior from Cedar Hill. "You get out of it what you put into it." "I came here expecting to solve my spiritual pro- blems, but I learned that was something I had to do for myself," he said. "ACU could only provide the atmosphere. But the atmosphere is so positive. It's so rare but in such a great abundance here. We just have to work hard at keeping it so plentiful." Some people came to ACU because of circumstances beyond their control, namely their parents. Mary Onstead, senior from Houston, said, "I was one of those kids who came our here because I was informed that I could choose any college I wanted, but the money would go to ACU. I 'decided' this was the only school for me." But Mary had since had a change of heart. "What's so special about this place? That's easy. The people. They're different here. 'I'here's a closeness you don't find in high school or a state school, and that comes from Christ. Andrea Cannedy, senior from Jerome, Idaho, came to ACU as a junior transfer student from Idaho State Universi- ty. She had doubts as to whether she could get a good education from a Christian school. "I didn't know if I would be sacrificing academics for 'atmospherej but now I believe Rohre, Susan Rokey, Mark Rollinson.

Plus I have a bonus, a Christian - perspective that has taught me a lot about ethics." jeff Curtis, senior from Houston, found two reasons ' for coming to ACU: "For the Christian education and to find a Christian wife." But jeff also had some advice for the freshmen that extended beyond simplicities. "I would ad- vise the freshmen to get involved with their class and to pat- ticipate in as many activities as possible, especially things like Fish Camp and Sing Song," he said. Some seniors had regrets, too. "The thing I regret the most was that I didn't get involved with the people in a church as soon as possible," said Thad Walker, senior from Boulder, Colo. "I think this is the most important part of a person's life and I neglected that." What people have been saying all along seems to be true - people and the time spent with them are the most impor- tant parts of ACU. And those qualities are what make reminiscing so enjoyable. - Elise Smizb j 2 4... af ,fi
