Text from Pages 1 - 392 of the 1979 volume:

There is only one limit to creativity, to human engineer- ing, and that is as far as the mind can reach and believe it can be done. This book is sincerely dedicated by the 1978-79 Rhododendron staff and those connected with her making to Chancellor Herbert W. Wey, who retires in June 1979, in appreciation of his many fine years spent working for the University he loves — to a man who not only gained the respect and admiration of his colleagues and the students, but who was to all of us at ASU a model of exactly what a " Mountaineer " should be.

People are so impersonal. like it here. I don ' t love it, but I like it. " Some people adjust easier than others. I think I must be looking for something else, but I don ' t know what it is. Sometimes I ' m happy. Through the week I ' m always happy. Like today, I was walking around, and it was so cool. The air smelled so good, and I was thinking about how I could really make it here. But the weekends change it all. When you are four or five hours from home, things are different. When your friends are here it makes a real difference; none of my friends are here. " You meet people you ' ve never known and in the long run, youll do things you ' ve never done before. When you live with people a year, they become your family. You can ' t always run to Mother. I won ' t be here next year. I don ' t feel this place would lose anything if I left. You can ' t just sit around and expect people to talk to you. You have to make an effort. You have to take the attitude that you ' re going to make it work, lam. I get bored at the same old shit all the time. There ' s nothing to do but go out and get drunk. I ' m not ready to quit— college is supposed to be the happiest time of your life. You have to make it that way. Experience 5 u 6 Experience Why did I come to ASU? Well, I didn ' t exactly know where my head was. Man, life was like wandering in a fog, not knowing where to go or what to do. Sometimes I didn ' t even care. I needed time to sort things out, to get into a lot of different things. ASU ' s diverse. I think anyone can find themselves here, be it a major or a lifestyle. There is no pressure to conform to any one way of living. They give you a chance to be you and a chance to find others like you. Yeah, anyone can find themselves — if they take the time to do it, have enough patience to try, and enough courage to keep trying until you succeed. Its just that simple — or that difficult. Experience 7 ■ i mi m SL j§fe?r y • . 4 8 Experience came to ASU because I love sports, and they gave me a chance to play. You can ' t appreciate what this means to me until you ' ve had a chance to play for a team. If you ' ve never had that experience of being a part of a bunch of people that are working together toward a common goal, then you ' ve really missed something. You work and sweat and take great pains trying to make everything fall right into place. Sometimes you pull it off and sometimes you don ' t. Whether you win or lose, it ' s great having a chance to get out there and fight. While getting primed for the games, you get close to a lot of people. You really learn what makes them tick. Pressure does that. You learn to depend on people and have them depend on you. You learn to win, but most of all you leam how to lose— graciously. But for me at least, the most important part of any team effort in the support of the crowd. That " Give ' em Hell Appsl " has a way of making the impossible much easier, making it all seem worthwhile. I enjoy the emotion involved. The coaches and players hollerin ' their lungs out brings out the " all " in me. I don ' t think I could perform as well without it. One good thing ASU has done that I feel is real good is putting more time and effort into spirit, something I thought had died out. It ' s added a lot to the school. I feel the ASU sports program is going places. We ' ve got the poten- tial, and we ' ve got the school to back us all the way. There ' s nowhere we can ' t go as long as we realize just what we can do. Sports takes a lot of time and energy, but it ' s all worth it. Yeah, being a jock is just great with me. Some people I know get real mad when someone calls them " jock. " I just get proud. Experience 9 10 Experience think one of the greatest things in the world to do at ASU is to sit around with a bunch of good friends and chew the fat. I believe there are ten thousand more valuable lessons to be learned from people and their experiences than could ever be sucked out of a college textbook. The greatest times I ' ve ever had here is sittin ' around the room with a bunch of friends and talking about what we ' ve done or what we ' re going to do. You never say anything really specific or do anything worth writing a book about. You just plain make a few memories that will keep you company in the years to come when the ol ' lights aren ' t shining as bright. And I ' ve never experienced anything that could compare with the times I ' ve sat down with various professors, gotten a little mellow, realized that professors are not robots made from specific and precise molds to reel out fact after fact, but they are living, breathing, and feeling human beings. I think in all the classroom games we have to play you kind of forget about those things. All in all, people here are so ... well . . . varied I guess. All types are here, anywhere from aristocrats to rednecks. It ' s wild getting to know them and learning to be with them, to become friends. People are a trip. Experience 11 12 Experience — B = „•-. . ' 1 M I , That preacher that came up here had a lot of guts. He had something he felt needed saying and was brave enough to stand up and say it. I didn ' t agree with a lot of the things he said and especially the way he said some of them, but I can ' t help feeling respect and admiration for the man for being able to say what he felt needed saying. He could be right, wrong, whatever, but he was fired up about a " cause. " It ' s like what a buddy and I were talking about a few days ago. Our generation just doesn ' t seem to get fired up about anything anymore, except maybe the prospects for a job and retirement benefits. It ' s like, if you ' ll forgive my play on words, 7 do my thing and you do your thing, I ' m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you are not in this world to live up to mine. I am I and you are you and if by chance you ain ' t into what I ' m doin ' then the hell with you. ' Does it take something like the Vietnam War to make us sit up and care? The world is far from perfect, and there is a lot that needs doing. It takes guts to stand up alone for a purpose you feel is worthwhile, to work together toward a common goal. I hear people bitch all the time about the way things are run around here, the way things should be, what was bad about this, or how they would have done so and so differently, and yet people don ' t even care enough to work— only talk. There should be a law somewhere that one should not be allowed to criticize anything with- out adding something to build up what they just tore down. I know it sounds like I ' m running off at the mouth, but I do care about my gener- ation, and the world. I feel that a ton of good could be done for everyone if everyone just wanted to do the good and just talk about it. Everyone seemed to care in the sixties and early seventies. They seemed to want to work together for what they believed in. Yeah, I know there was a lot of bad in the sixties and early seven- ties. It says in my psych book that in ' 71 heroin was the number one killer of people our age. But there was a lot of good that came out of the sixties. You just can ' t let the good be distorted by the bad. There was a lot of good done and a lot of stimulation that led to good. I believe we left a lot of ideals back there that we desperately need now. Sure people were dropping from the abuse of heroin in ' 71, but now the number one killer of our age group is suicide, and it just doesn ' t seem to me that everything is going just peachy-keen for us. Well, maybe my problem is I was just bom ten years too late, but I can ' t stand the thought of everyone being so concerned about Joe number one without caring for anyone or anything else. And there is so much Joe number one could gain from just plain caring enough to stand up and get involved. Experience 13 14 Experience A t first, the group seemed the place to be. Not specifically with any one purpose, but just a group of people to hang around with. But groups change and shift around like snow in a good storm up here. Or maybe I just changed. Anyway, I finally got tired of being a groupy. Everything I searched for was turned inward, looking for what- ever it is or was that separated me from the group. A t first, being an individual was scary as hell. It seemed everytime you stood alone something would come up and knock you down. You just keep trying and sooner or later it pans out. Yeah, it was scary, but later it seemed like the most important thing in the world to me— discovering who I was, where I was going, how I fit in with the scheme of things, and what made me unique. Sometimes you need a group, sure. But, it ' s nice to know you are identified as you and not as a part of a larger whole. I enjoy being me, and relating to people Experience 15 The Year— Its People, Places, And Things 16 Experiences W m The way I see it, there ' s more to an education than just theory. It ' s experiencing what you ' re interested in. It ' s people, places, and things . . . ASU offers me a chance to go further into my interests than just sticking my face into a book. I don ' t feel like a tape recorder reeling off obscure facts. I feel like I have a purpose.

Webster ' s Dictionary defines a union as " something united or unified; a whole made up of parts. " Plem- mons Student Union presents an ideal example of the unity of students. A union of minds can best be seen in the studying facilities upstairs in the Student Union where students can listen to music while they study or relax. The contact tables which are set up in the main lobby by clubs or service groups represent the union of the goals of students. Perhaps the most important union, however, is that of the people. In truth the Plemmons Student Union is exactly what it claims to be— a place established for and directed toward the unification of the students. 22 Plemmons Top: Jody Jones and Cathy Curtis relax.

ASU, however, blesses its students with the good fortune of commuting eight miles of mountain road to Blowing Rock. Here can be found those comforts which serve to make college life a little easier to forget. The fair city offers several places to " wet your whistle. " Among these places are Holly ' s, Clyde ' s, the Hobbit Hutch, and the Grubsteak Saloon. P. B. Scott ' s offers live enter- tainment between regular ap- pearances by Snuff ( " Our best band — Come early! " ). Since its remodeling last year. Antler ' s has become a great place for exciting night life. The Library Club is also a fine place, but snow and rain limit parking to the streets where the in- famous town policemen love to write out tickets. True, Blowing Rock is more than a beer-drinker ' s haven, but to many ASU students, little else about the town is significant. £1 M The Rock 37 mf ' J SU Presents other s Finest nd Dixie Dregs — with host Bill Murray from Saturday Night Live Friday night, October 27, was an evening which will not be easily forgotten by the SGA or by the 5,000 people in attendance for the Dixie Dregs and Mother ' s Finest concert which was emceed by Saturday Night Live ' s Bill Murray. The Student Government Association was given the unenviable task of luring a top notch band to a remote section of the country under a limited budget for the 1978 Homecoming concert. They did their job well and the results were stunning. The gate receipts netted a profit and set a sound basis for attracting other big-name bands. The near-capacity crowd was ready for the show and few were disappointed. The Dixie Dregs opened the show by blending a progressive rock sound with a touch of coun- try. Rocking and fiddling, the Dregs warmed up the already hot crowd and the rest of the evening just fell into place. The self-described " funk rockers, " Mother ' s Finest, had their work cut out for them. The group performed a number of their previous releases and also previewed their latest album. With their ex- travagant, excitement-filled show, they proved to the crowd that they knew their business. Although there were mixed reac- tions concerning the positive and negative qualities of both groups, on the whole the crowd was pleased and the evening will be remembered as a definite success.

Bottom: The multi- talented John Hartford. 40 ASU Music ASU ' s music programs have been lacking lately, needless to say. But this year, the music at Appalachian began its climb back up to the top. By picking and clogging simultaneously, John Hartford delighted a September Farthing Auditorium crowd. A talented showman, Hartford switched instruments (banjo, guitar, and fiddle) in rapid-fire succession. Said Carol Campbell, critic for The Appalachian, Hartford picked a banjo like no one else. His voice was clear and strong with seemingly endless range. Appearing with Hartford and in " Our House " was Appaloossa, a five member southern band that played country, rock, blues, and bluegrass. Also appear- ing in " Our House " was Tim Bays, a folk guitarist, and John Stanford, a guitarist vocalist. During the spring there was a concert by Do ' a, a group which performed " original composi- tions with jazz, classical, and folk influences " (excerpt from cultural programs schedule). Also, during the spring semester, music weeks were sponsored in which an entire week was spent with programs of a certain type of music (Classical Week, Folk Week, Jazz Week, and Country Rock Week). In years past, the Student Government Association has had the uncanny knack of selecting a band for homecoming that was about a month from international stardom. Poor atten- dance at past concerts threatened the future of concerts at ASU. A tip of the hat goes to SGA this year, however. An es- tablished group, Mother ' s Finest, and a capable back-up band, the Dixie Dregs, played before a homecoming crowd of over 5,000. A profit was realized, and the 1978 homecoming con- cert was the most successful in many years. ASU Music 41 42 ASU Music Certainly, the contributions by the Music Department cannot be overlooked. Performances by the numerous ensembles of the department were all excellent and the response was tremendous. Perhaps the most entertaining of all the concerts during the 1978-79 school year was a benefit performance for Cannon Memorial Hospital and Kevin Brogan. Doc Watson and his son Merle brought Farthing Auditorium down in November with classic numbers such as " Sweet Georgia Brown, " and " Black Mountain Rag. " A three minute standing ovation coaxed the duo into an encore presenta- tion of " Tennessee Stud. " (See pages 74 and 75) Without a doubt, this has been a great year in music for ASU.

ASU Music 43 44 App House The T.V. show Saturday Night Live and its cast have had a profound (?) effect on the students this year. Besides having Bill Murray as our host for Homecoming, John Belushi and his movie Animal House helped to keep students entertained. The movie caused a greater interest to be shown in social frats as well as keeping up stu- dent interest in the cafeteria (Food fight! Food fight!). The movie also helped to influence fall and winter fashions (Toga! Toga!) and in- troduced a new type of mixer — or rather introduced an old type of mixer that was new, or maybe . . . well, forget it. Even on Halloween, strange beings from Saturday Night found their way into the Boone Blowing Rock area. All in all, our spirits have been brighter, our pocketbooks lighter, and our eyes a little redder thanks to the masses that gather around the T.V. on Saturday night — " Live " .

The festivities began with the fourth Miss Black Culture Pageant. Wyshena Miller was crowned Miss Black Culture with Melodee Edington as first runner-up. The eight contestants competed in the areas of talent, sportswear, eveningwear, charisma, and poise. On October 23 the B.SA. Gospel Choir, directed by Willie Fleming, presented a concert in Whitener Hall. The Atlanta Dance Group followed with a performance at Farthing Auditorium on October 26. The alumni reception for black ASU alumni was held October 28. That night the Corona- tion Ball which featured a live band was at the Polar Palace. During the week films such as " Which Way is Up? " and " Cornbread, Earl, and Me " were shown at Farthing Auditorium. The crowds attending each event proved the success of the week. Cecelia Harris, director of the pageant said, " Each year Black Culture Week improves over the year before and this year was no exception. I myself enjoyed it a lot and I ' m sure everyone else did.

BCW 51 T H E A T E R 52 Theater The ASU University Theater has always been ac- tive and excellent in its productions. The department gives students the opportunity to explore the world of professional dramatics in such areas as direction, stage design, acting, make-up, production, etc. This year, the department has graced us with such plays as Thomas Wolfe ' s " Look Homeward Angel " (previous two pages), one act plays (preceding page), " Amahl and the Night Visitors " at Christmas time, reader ' s Theaters, and the " Merchant of Venice " at the end of the year. The University Theater productions have continually been sold out as students flock to the live, on stage presentations. Theater 53 ASU Theater presents: Thomas Wolfe ' s Look Homeward, Angel " But as he spoke, the phantom years scrolled up their vision, and only the eyes of Ben burned terribly in the darkness, without an answer. And day came, and the song of waking birds, and the Square, bathed in the young pearl light of morning. And a wind stirred lightly in the Square, and, as he looked, Ben, like a fume of smoke, was melted into dawn. And the angels on Gant ' s porch were frozen in hard marble silence, and at a distance life awoke, and there was a rattle of lean wheels, a slow clangor of shod hoofs. And he heard the whistle wail along the river. Yet, as he stood for the last time by the angels of his father ' s porch, it seemed as if the Square already were far and lost; or, I should say, he was like a man who stands upon a hill above the town he has left, yet does not say ' The town is near, ' but turns his eyes upon the distant soaring ranges. " — Thomas Wolfe J. Braxton Harris Rip-Roarin And RamHin Rodeo River Race 56 River Race came. I saw. I conquered — Caesar twm$ . The skies here are the bluest in the world, at least to me. It ' s a lazy place — a come as you are, be as you are kind of atmosphere. It ' s escapist. It ' s dodging the tourist trade and finding a nice cool meadow to crack a book, drink a beer, or think for a while. It ' s cool nights and warm mellow days. It ' s wine, it ' s places, it ' s people. It ' s living each moment as it comes to you and forgetting the rest. It ' s walking and remembering, jogging and forgetting. It ' s a nether world between a dream — vacationland and home. It ' s a go to class in a T-shirt and shorts or dress to the hilt kind of live and let live world. It ' s a " roll up one; do you want a hit; no thank you; that ' s cool " kind of living together, where each is to his own but aware of the other. It ' s an adventure down white water rapids, treking the woods like Dan ' el Boone, scaling sheer cliffs, or soaring through the sky like an eagle. It ' s sitting on a fence and watching time pass with the breeze. It ' s anything you make it, if you want it bad enough. And it ' s all too soon a memory. ! c9| fi: 58 Summer «1 ■ ■. - Grass Skiing A Summer Alternative ' ll »» «; , . Although Summer days are endless in the amount of things one can experience, grass skiing presented itself as a new alternative. At Beech Mountain could be heard the sound of grass skiis running down the novice slope in front of the rental house. Grass skiis look like tank treads that latch onto both feet, and they provide great practice for the regular skiier as well as a new experience for the non-skiier. If you ' re out for something new this summer, why not ski grass. 60 Summer Skiing ■ m m Summer Skiing 61 Warm weather at ASU opens up a wide new variety of activities for those looking for something new to do. You can experience the college standards, such as moving to a new residence (this page, upper left), or throwing a frisbee on the mall like Jeff Stanley (this page, upper right) or just laying out and soaking up a few mountain rays like Susan Kight (this page, lower right). But maybe you ' re into finding new experiences, testing yourself, testing your skill, like Mike Bartel or Kevin Triplett (next page) who tried skydiving at the small airstrip off 321 (where for a small fee you can learn to fly). For this kind of adventurer, there are many things to try — like canoeing, hiking, orienteering, camping, shooting white water, mountain climbing, grass skiing (to name a few). Interested in adventure? Look to ASU in warm weather. 62 Warm Weather r ■ Warm Weather 63 That transition from summer to fall, or winter to spring, creates for me a strange void that I experience at no other time of the year. Things seem to slow down from their mad- dening pace in the middle of semesters and your thoughts want to drift in class. It strikes me kind of like birth and death to see the winter grow warm and the summer grow cold. I like to be alone a lot in spring and summer — to think, to be with myself and maybe go fly fishing or something. I like to go to Winkler ' s Creek with a bunch of friends and go skinny- dipping like a kid chasing dreams. I like to go out on the parkway with a blanket and a book and get into the wind. You know — that wind kind of blankets out all the noise and you can do some real serious reading. I get into jogging too and walking down dirt roads 64 Transition where I haven ' t been. And a couple of times, I ' ve just said the heck with the whole world and gone deep into the woods for a week of two with a good friend and a good solid walking stick. I come back smelling like a horse, but I come back happy. And at times studies get me so keyed up that I feel like I am going to explode, and I jump on a good ten speed and lose it all in the wind. I love it when the weather first starts to change — the cold slapping your face as you ride, or run or walk along. I love to see the trees change, especially back deep in the mountains. And it ' s a peaceful thing when that feel- ing goes away and winter returns. The void gets caught up in a whirlwind of studies and papers and professors. And you wait patiently for the transition to come again. Transition 65 The thing I remember most about this year ' s fall is dry. I remember lines and lines of tourists coming up the mountain throwing cigarettes out their win- dows. I was waiting for the mountains to go up like dry tender. The weather was sunny, warm — dis- gusting. I was waiting for some good crisp cold. Another thing I remember about this fall was that it was the time I discovered there was more to ASU than the Rock, classes, and general goofing around. I started dating a girl who was really into the moun- tains. She took me out on a lot of walks into the area. I remember color, and cool breezes. I remem- ber sitting around under trees for hours not doing anything but talking, flipping sticks— being together. She took me out to meet people — to meet locals, mountain people. I learned a little banjo, and discovered the pleasures of good hoe cake, green beans, corn, yams, and fried chicken. I learned to plow, and pick, and butcher, and clean. I learned to " sang " old songs. I learned a bit about foretelling the weather and the mystical powers of a buckeye. I learned to love — seriously. Besides being able to tear things apart and ex- amine them, I learned to put things together— color, sound, touch, smell. It was all her, all a discovery. I feel older, like I ' ve gone through an end and a beginning, and I can ' t go back. It was a great fall. She was great. I hated to lose them both. 66 Fall 68 Fall Fall proved to be a busy season for ASU as stately Mayview Manor, deserted for years but beautiful in its own right, fell to progress (?) (preceeding page, upper right); construc- tion got underway on the NASA sponsored windmill generator atop Howard ' s Knob (one of only two in the nation) (preceding page, upper left); spirit seemed to be an " in " thing as many pep rallies were held (preceding page, lower left); Robert Bradshaw was removed from campus for soliciting — the end of an ASU legend? (preceding page, lower right); Governor Jim Hunt flew in via helicopter to attend the dedication of Winkler dorm (this page, upper left); the campus or- dinance against dogs on campus was enforced to the dismay of students and security alike (this page, upper right); but the biggest story that broke through the Boone area headlines was the long dry spell. The town of Boone ' s water supply reached a critical level and water from ASU ' s supply had to supplement the town ' s supply (this page, lower left). Fall 69 You ' ve never felt cold like a good Appalachian winter. It has a way of isolating things— sounds, places, minutes . . . The wind, cold, and snow have a way of pushing everything aside, of keeping all life cuddled away in dark little nooks and crannies of warm buildings. When the first snow flake falls, it ' s a mad freshman rush to see and a quick once-over of skiing equipment to check and see what kind of shape it is in. The cafeteria is always subject to a deluge of tray thievery around this time, and there is always a shor- tage of shapely bodies on campus but an overabundance of mummy-like beings. There is always a rush on the hot beverage section of the local supermarkets as, in the dorms, stories of the cold days ahead filled with tales of people who ventured out into the Appalachian wasteland never to be heard from again run rampant. Snowballs are a constant hazard as well as are sheets of ice carefully concealed by the crews that scrape the sidewalks. Grass skis are stored as snow skis find their ways to the slopes. And there is nothing more thrilling than that first run down a steep slope through virgin powder. This time of the year, you leam the pleasures of good company, of good hot food and drink, and find comfort in the presence of a warm body beside you under a mountain of quilts somewhere in the Appalachian Mountains. 70 Winter Christmas at ASU is a very special time. It ' s a time for winding up the semester and celebrating the birth of Christ each in his own way. It ' s a rush time — getting everything squared away, and it ' s a sad time as some friends graduate and go into the " real " world. It ' s Christmas trees and music, carolers and crafts; it ' s loud, it ' s quiet — it ' s soft . . . It ' s telling those around you, " I love you " in direct or subtle ways. And it ' s warmth as the weather grows colder and friends grow closer. 72 Christmas As winter started into full swing, the rain came ending the long dry spell that had carried through the fall. The winter progressed and the rain changed to snow and back to rain again. But the snow finally came in earnest in January to the delight of skiers and trayers alike. It was just beautiful. Christmas 73 1 1 ' J4is cJLue, J4h J4ome Jmd 1 1 lountains It takes a special kind of person to devote his life to the entertainment and enjoyment of others. Doc Watson is special. From the time he began playing his harmonica at four years of age, he knew he was meant to be a musician. And a musician he is — of the highest caliber. His music is considered by most as blue- grass or country, but it is more than that. Doc Watson ' s music is a heritage. He has never forgotten or deserted his roots and they are the basis for his music. He is proud of his work and he has a right to be; he is a professional and one of the best in his field of entertainment. He is a winner of numerous Grammy A wards, but being a star is not his greatest pleasure. His real enjoyment comes in doing what he likes — playing his music — and having people enjoy it. 76 Outside Alternatives Alternatives is a word that fits in perfectly with some of the programs here at Ap- palachian, and this page is designed specifically to note their existence. First, in keeping with the material exhibited on this spread, i s Appalachian ' s Washington campus located on third street just a stone ' s throw from the Capitol Building. This and ASU ' s New York campus give students the oppor- tunity to observe the arts, business, politics, or any other activity that they might need to study. Classes regularly take students to these off- campus campuses to concentrate in their respective areas in a manner that could never be accomplished in a classroom. Anything one might want to find out about life " in the world outside " can be experienced at one or both of these campuses which are open to group as well as individual expeditions. They provide experiences and resources that only can be provided by cities of such great stature — ex- periences that can never, as said before, be gained in a classroom or gleaned from a textbook. The best experience is experience itself, and ASU does it best to please. Outside A Iternatives 77 78 Activities " J believe we left a lot of ideals back there that we desperately need now. Sure people were dropping from the abuse of heroin in ' 71, but now the number one killer of our age group is suicide, and it just doesn ' t seem to me that everything is going just peachy-keen for us. Well, maybe my problem is I was just born ten years too late, but I can ' t stand the thought of everyone being so concerned about Joe number one without caring for anyone or anything else. And there is so much Joe number one could gain from just plain caring enough to stand up and get involved. " (Excerpt from page 9.) Finding yourself is more than just searching through the pages of other people ' s lives, of other people ' s experiences. It ' s finding your place in the organization of things so that you feel a purpose in being. It ' s taking thoughts, feelings, actions— abstracts— and pulling them all together into a personal reality. And it all comes together when you find that little niche in the workings of the world that is your own.

In ASU ' s Student Government Association the " ' student " makes the major difference. The SGA was set up to represent each one of ASU ' s students in the best possible way. And they do a very good job. Whereas the average ASU stu- dent might limit their knowledge of SGA to the homecoming concert and an election each spring, a tremendous amount was accomplished. Two successful Allen Lamont and Library Club discos, two anti-suitcase weekends, backgam- mon tournaments, an energy conservation drive, help in celebration of honoring the retirement of Chancellor Wey, activities hotline, Seven Devils Ski Night, the Christmas parade, consumer booklets on housing and restaurants, student legal services, a test file, pictures to liven up the B.I., a Giving Thanks food drive, and a dance in Broome-Kirk Gym with the Spontanes are just a partial list of SGA ' s 1978-79 accomplishments. Charles Powell, SGA President said, " The goals set up at the beginning of the year have been completed and we have discovered more and more areas for Student Government to work for you. " SGA 83 You don ' t have to be a star ... to be in the " Appalachian " or The Rhododendron. So was the theme on February 1, when the staffs of The Rhododendron and the " Appalachian, " in conjunction with Pi Kappa Phi, hosted a night at Shenanigans. The affair offered the usual Thursday night pilgrims something extra — a half dozen photographers snapping pic- tures for the yearbook and newspaper. For whatever reason — fame, fortune, or celebrity status — the people came in numbers despite inclement weather. The major purpose of the evening was to raise money for Chancellor Wey ' s retirement gift. The objective was accomplished with much planning, hard work, and only a few mishaps. All in all though the evening was a great success, thanks to the people at Shenanigans, the Boone area merchants who donated door prizes, and those that attended. Shenanigan ' s was packed with many people joining in the festivities for Chancellor Wey. 84 Star 1 1 ct 1 B litfftit ? ' » t ' Tl You Don ' t Have to Be a Star . . .

Her experiences with the paper have been challenging, yet in- teresting. Her innovations have caught the eyes and admiration of the student body. " Coming into the fall semester the staff had different objectives. We wanted a larger input from the students, thus we printed more letters and guest editorials. We were very open about our editorial page. Every student has a right to be heard. The sports and feature section were expand- ed to front page coverage once in a while to try and break up the monotony of news articles. Ray Criscoe did an excellent job with sports. This year we added more features, including his prediction column in the fall. The most unique aspect of working with the newspaper this year was all the conflicting personalities on our staff. Personally, it was difficult for me to work with an all male editorial staff — male ego as it is — but we managed and even had a good time together. " During the fall semester The Appalachian was the butt of many complaints by the students and administration. " We made too many mis- takes. Perhaps there were too many conflicting personalities. For some issues some of us had to stay up all night. But it all came together in the spring. Sometimes I ' d get so caught up in putting together a good paper, I ' d forget that people actually read it. When people would come tell me they enjoyed an issue, I was surprised and very, very proud. " BELOW: Mark Kreuzwieser and Annette Stovall study a feature article.

I am writing this on the eve of our last deadline to sum up what has been (in my experience) the greatest year this annual has ever had. Of course, there is a small amount of pre- judice involved. We have been a staff of firsts. We have set up a production system and made it work. We have consciously tried to provide the staff with a broad educational base. We have built an annual with a concentrated group effort. We have treated our- selves as professionals. We have constructed a book built on the feelings and happenings of this year. We have put together a uni- que book— a book as unique and individualistic as you the stu- dents, faculty, and staff have made it. It ' s hard to appreciate the work that has gone into this book. It ' s a one shot — it better be good the first time— deal. It ' s not like working on a newspaper or on a radio program. Here your name is not constantly out before the people. It is a one shot deal, but this one shot will remain as long as Appalachian is an institution, and for as long as there are people whose lives we have touched. Each staff member has put anywhere between twenty to forty hours a week into this book — six months of push, push, push. The unique thing about this staff is that in the bulk of annual staffs, there is usually a core of three to six people who do all the work. Here we have had a concentrated effort by every member of the staff. In our work, we have all grown very close by living together, working together, by traveling together. We have all made gTeat personal sacrifices in order to complete our work. We have done something special, something I have personally dreamed and worked for for years. But all the work and the credit belongs to the staff of the 1978-79 Rhododendron. I find this last tribute to be the most difficult to write. It is hard to fina lly finish a dream, because it is in its dream- ing that all the memories, the pains, the rewards are made. The staff and I have gone through a lot together. I love them all, because without them, this book would have been nothing more than a dream unfulfilled. They ' ve done a helluva fine job. 88 Rhododendron The Rhododendron Back Row: Tim Greenlee, Blair Kerkhoff, Mark Tadlock, Leo Storey, Andre Woods, Lee Beason, Richard Rawson.

Rhododendron 89 91 WASU-FM Three hundred forty watts will never sound like a million and Allison Steele will probably be with us until we graduate, but ASU ' s radio station WASU underwent a facelift this past year that has brought many innovations to the station and plenty of listening pleasure to the campus and Boone area. Among the major transfor- mations are extended broadcasting hours (sign-off at 1:00 a.m.); an hour of classical music and an hour and a half of jazz music per day; a special segment, " Take Fif- teen, " each Monday, Wednesday, and Fri- day; an hour of beach music on Saturdays; and an album spotlight on Mondays and Thursdays. An important aspect looming over the station is when the change to stereo broadcast will become a reality. Says the Director of Broadcasting at ASU, Dr. Pat Reighard, " Well, we ' re cer- tainly capable equipmentwise, but we must receive permission from the FCC for future development. What we need is a new transmitter. " As for now, Program Director Kirk Puckett says, " Listen and you ' ll notice the difference. " Above: Lewis Nixon, Jim Jernigan, Right: Jim Jernigan. 90 WASU L-R.

Paperwork is endless, but aside from the paperwork, student counciling is the most arduous task of an R.A. The responsibility of counciling does not end with what classes to take next semester.

About two percent of the students are considered minority students, and those are predominantly black students. Minority Affairs is also concerned with international students. They are designed to be an awareness program for minority students. Awareness is sought from the students at ASU, from prospective minority students, and by the university community itself. This three- fold plan is the basis of the program. They provide educational programs depicting various aspects of minority culture. The three basic programs sponsored by minority affairs this year were Black Heritage Week, Afro-American History Week, and Black Awareness Weekend. Rap sessions, and outside speakers are designed to benefit the minority student. A representative also visits various communities and high schools to increase enrollment of minority students at ASU. Archie Ervin is the director. 96 Minority Affairs Far right: Whshena Miller. Top: Melodee Edington, Leshaun Duberry, A vet Anderson. Above: Gloria Woodard.

Rewarding? Yes! But the rewards come from within. Feelings — good sometimes, but not always. The members of the organization care enough to go that " second mile " and expect nothing in return. They don ' t have to brag about their service because they live it each day of their lives. The volunteers work very hard and do so without pay. In short, they are a few beautiful people who care enough to share their lives with our hope for tomorrow ... the youth of today.

Who ' s Who 107 Security The one aspect of ASU that probably gets more student complaints than anything else (even grades) is the Appalachian Security. Yet without their services the gripes would be even louder. The twelve full-time officers and seven student of- ficers perform a vital function in the operating university. With three cars and a four-wheel drive vehicle, the job is operating 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. There is a lot of responsibility in policing an entire university. The most obvious job is that of traffic control. The officers write over 200 tickets daily, most of these for parking in restricted areas. Money received from tickets goes to repairs and paving, not to the officers themselves. The variety of jobs of the security officers means their job is never routine. They lock and secure each building nightly. They provide a type of ambulance service be- tween the infirmary and the hospital. Since Boone police do not work on campus, the security officers often investigate acci- dents. False fire alarms must be checked on, as must all bomb threats. Panty raids and ballgames must also be patrolled " just in case. " The list of their duties is endless. Security officers learn to take complaints in stride as part of their job because com- pliments are extremely infrequent. As one officer said, " Put in a good word for us; we ' re not here to hurt anyone, we ' re here to help them. " Upper: Car Restrainers. Middle left: Phil Minion. 108 Security Health Services Sometimes students do not tend to take the ASU Infirmary seriously. There are a couple of reasons for that. The most likely one, however, would be that because stu- dents do not have to pay for their medica- tion, it is not really a hospital. Small and run down though it may be, the ASU In- firmary does its best to provide students with proper health care. Plans for a new Medical Service building are in the wings and the larger new building will help out tremendously. Dr. Ashby commented that ASU is one of the few large schools that still provides free medical care, but how long the service will last is questionable. The idea of charging students for care is not out of the picture. Dr. Derrick is very happy at ASU because of the personal feeling he has with the students. Both doc- tors look forward to the new facility and are confident that it will be responsible for some definite changes in ASU ' s Medical Services Program. Above: Issa Saviors, Marv Shook, Dr. Ashby, Middle left: William Harmon, Middle right: Dr. Derrick, Below: Dr. Ashbv. Health Services 109 Food Services Move Ahead In the past ASU ' s Food Service have been known for their ability to provide a variety of food in the several eating es- tablishments on campus, their bakery cakes, and their low prices. Well, they still feed students, they still maintain the Ice Cream Parlor, Gold Room, B.I., and Cafeteria, and they still bake cakes, but their food prices rose this year from low to moderate. The price increase was the biggest after-Christmas shock since the postponement of spring registration last year. Yet Food Services managed to keep the prices lower than any place else in town. And now for a run down on ASU ' s Food Service-sponsored " restaurants ... " The Ice Cream Parlor is one of the best places on campus for a mid-morning, after- noon, or late night snack. And one does not necessarily have to be craving ice cream to benefit from the Ice Cream Parlor. Sandwich and drink machines are also located there. The B.I. is definitely the most popular fast food chain ASU has to of- fer. With anything ranging from chicken fillet sandwiches to burritos, the B.I. is open for the students ' easy access from 7:00 a.m. to 1 1:00 p.m. daily. For entertainment, atmosphere, and a relaxing meal, the Gold Room is the place to be. The Gold Room provides a salad bar for the dieter and for the dessert lover, great hot fudge cake. If none of these sound suitable, the Cafeteria is always a favorite stand-by serving balanced meals, salads, sandwiches, or even Lite Lunches, a feature introduced last year. So don ' t go around hungry; there ' s no excuse. ASU Food Services offers the finest (the only, but the finest) choice of eating facilities to be found on campus. The Cafeteria, the Bavarian Inn, and the Ice Cream Shop also serve as a meeting place and a break from the everyday chaotic class schedule. Melissa May field {far right) and several members of the Quan- tity Cookery Home Ec. class help to keep the cafeteria as clean as it is. 110 Food Services Food Services 111 (This Page) Upper Right: Oxford and Cambridge Shakespeare Company — Artist and Lecture Series.

A Matter Of Complementing Education 112 Complementary Education An over-simplified definition of complement is " to complete " and in essence that is what Complementary Education at ASU is here for. This division of the Un- iversity provides services to students which are designed to complete their classroom work and enhance academic programs. Complementary Education is a unique program. There is no other like it in the country. Whereas most schools have separate programs, ASU, in 1975, con- solidated several organizations designed to complement education, into one large structure for more effective management and effective processes. A student ' s involvement in Comp Ed can be prac- tically endless. Their administrative divisions include student actions at Workman Hall, Plemmons Student Union, Farthing Auditorium, Resident Programs, and Cultural Programs. They involve as many students as possible in responsible management positions. One of the most important jobs involves scheduling. The system is set up so that any group on campus can set up a campus-wide program that will be scheduled thru Comp Ed. This not only benefits the group, but those who attend various programs also benefit. Without their services, programs at ASU might come in spurts, with three or four major events scheduled on one date and then nothing for the next month. Their Cultural Program ' s Calendar achieves this goal. Almost everything in Comp Ed takes place through students. There are twenty full-time non-student em- ployees whereas most colleges have many times over this amount. Interns are hired to support programs at Farthing, manage the Student Union, coordinate tutorial ser- vices, manage advertisement sales in the Appalachian Complementary Education 113 along with others. Programs coordinated by Comp Ed include: Resident Life Association, programming of popular films, The Rhododendron, The Appalachian, Artist and Lecture Series, Refrigerator Rentals, Greeks, Clubs and Organizations, and Student Government. While their purpose is not to provide entertainment but to provide a cultural experience, Comp Ed, none- theless " culturally entertains each student as it com- plements and completes the academic side of life in a unique and individual way.

I 7 Complementary Education 115 There ' s a lot you can dwell on about school. But the thing that strikes me as most devastating above everything else is when you realize that in one or two years, it ain ' t gonna be theory no more. You ' ve made your bed and now you have to lie in it. For me, this day came when I had just gotten out of general college and was sitting there in a room full of people ready to sign my life away to some dean and the thought scared the hell out of me. It made me remember a guy I had known a few years back. He was a lot older than I was. I had my mind set on my future. I thought all courses that didn ' t relate directly to what I believed was my fate was a waste of time. I was very bitter towards General College for " requiring " me to waste my time. It was " damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead " into the future. I mentioned this to my friend. He seemed a bit disturbed, and he told me he had something to give me. Later, he gave me a picture, a mountain scene — a barn, a fence, a stream, and a road. He asked me if I liked this picture. I told him yes, and he asked me why. I told him one thing and another, and he carefully guided my thoughts until the picture had become my life and the road had become the academics path I had chosen through college to the ends I hoped to eventually achieve. I went into this gloriously sickening sililoquy about " going down the road to tomorrow " and how college had played such an important role in sending me down that road, an obvious tribute to 116 Questions the programmed freshman. He stopped me and asked me if it was the road that made the picture attractive to me. I told him no, that it was the bam and the sky and the field . . . everything just blended so well together. He asked me isn ' t it the same with college, that everything in it blends together. Isn ' t there a danger that if you head yourself down that one road you are missing many chances to stop off it and enjoy those fields, the snow, the trees — everything the picture has to offer and not just one secluded part? Isn ' t there a greater danger that you might miss another road you like better? I laughed at him to myself thought that he wasn ' t being realistic about life; that he was an incurable romantic bent on wasting his time going in too many directions; that he just wasn ' t a very serious individual. I thought that you must have a strict plan laid out for yourself for tomorrow and that everything else is incidental. I used to laugh at him because I could tell him where I would be in ten years, and he couldn ' t tell me where he would be. All he could tell me about his future was that he would be happy with what he was doing. I was sure he was wasting his time, going nowhere. As I listened to the dean fill me in on what was expected of me, I wondered if I was sure what I was doing and had used that great wealth of liberal education that was offered me to find a place where I would really be happy in ten years. I felt trapped — and scared — and so young. Questions 117 Tomorrow ' s A wakening hJAb ir»l ycA ' tt m 99 nr r " I College Students are smarter today than they were in my day. They have a wider range of knowledge than when I went to school. They have more interests. They are more interested in doing things for others. Based on my own feelings and ex- perience, people say young people are going to the devil. If they are going to the devil, then when I went to school they were already gone. Young people are brighter and have a better philosophy of life, (from an interview with Dr. Herbert W. Wey - Chancellor of Appalachian State University who retires this year and to whom the next few pages are respectfully dedicated) 120 Tribute Tribute 121 122 Tribute A man ' s accomplishments are merely a mirror of his greatness. Appalachian State University has indeed been fortunate to be the mirror of Dr. Herbert W. Wey. In his ten years as president and chancellor, Appalachian has risen from the ranks of a small regional teacher ' s school to one of the fastest growing universities in the South. In 1969 Dr. Wey became the president of Ap- palachian. Three years later the school made the transi- tion to a state university and President Wey became Chancellor Wey. Dr. Wey brought with him determination, intelligence, and boundless energy. Time and again he sought and received funds to expand the facilities and programs on campus. As chancellor he has been directly or indirectly responsible for nearly every accomplishment the school had made. He followed up and saw the completion of a radical idea for North Carolina universities in the Center for Continuing Education. In sports. Dr. Wey brought ASU from a Divison III independent to a Division I member of the Southern Conference. We have become national contenders in soc- cer, and a conference power in football, basketball, and baseball. Dr. Wey has also created a suitable climate for the lesser known sports to grow and expand, encompass- ing everything from promotion to recruiting. Farthing Auditorium, John Walker Hall, New Art and Speech Building, Conrad Stadium expansion program, Belk Library addition, and the Campus Beautification Program are just a few of Dr. Wey ' s achievements. But where he has really excelled has been in the area of academics. He has added new departments such as Criminal Justice, Political Science, Special Education, Speech Pathology, and Audiology. In addition depart- ments have been divided to add more specialization. Geography and Geology, Reading and Councelor Education are already separate while Anthropology and Sociology are in the process of division. In the area of people. Dr. Wey has concerned himself mostly with students. He has drastically reduced the student-teacher ratio, secured funds for two new dorms, now under construction, and provided a truly educational atmosphere. Dr. Wey understands young people. He is a devoted family man with four daughters and seven grandchildren. He is probably one of the few chancellors in the nation that can walk up to a group of students and everyone feel at ease. In addition, he has made his office open to all students ready to talk anytime. Aside from his life at college, he has served numerous committees and organizations including special advisor to President Johnson. Author of over 45 articles and three books, Dr. Wey has given his entire career to im- proving our educational system. And improved it is. Dr. Wey sees college students of today brighter, smarter, and more determined to succeed. And the future grows brighter every day. Asked if he had any regrets about his years at Ap- palachian, Dr. Wey replied, " No, none at all. " Neither do we. Dr. Wey. Neither do we. Tribute 123 124 Tribute In sorting through interviews of those close to Dr. Wey, these words taken from an interview with Mr. Ned Trivette (Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs) seem to be the general con- census. You can ' t be open to everybody, yet he ' s done it. When a student had a problem, they didn ' t feel inhibited to go upstairs and ask the secretary to see Dr. Wey. That is really unique on a college campus. He allows you to use your own mind, your own initiative. But Dr. Wey ' s Secretary, Bernadette Campbell, seemed to sum him up quite well with the words, " He ' s a very uni- que person when it comes to his relationships with people. " Tribute 125 College of Arts and Sciences Julie Teague v« ssKJtggatgasaa—raiai " To maintain a college in which teaching and learning are ex- perienced in freedom and great joy so that we all may walk the earth with our heads up and a song in our hearts, and so that we may be awed by the mystery and meaning of the world. 1 ' Dr. William Strickland English Debbie Ramsey is a teaching assistant in the English Department. Her duties include regular office counciling hours and lab work hours on top of teaching class. If the work load seems insurmountable, don ' t tell Debbie. " I enjoy literature, and I feel it is to my advantage to get paid for something I en- joy doing. " Debbie feels that, " The professors are extremely competent; they ' re very interested in what they are doing. They care about students as individuals. They encourage you to come and get to know them better. " Indeed, the English department works hard. The Cold Mountain Review stimulates writing among students and citizens in the Boone area. The department also sponsors an annual trip to Europe. Ut »!ULYSIS Of " TH» 00M)»«i. ' 3 1.A1K- in ik . - ■ at aatlafi-d.

Above Right: Thomas Cowley 128 English Math Under the direction of Dr. William Paul, the Mathematical Science Department at ASU has developed a diverse program, applicable to many students. " We offer a number of service courses to other departments and junior colleges. Mathematical science touches a lot of bases. For example we have calculus courses required for not only math majors, but Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and Business Economics majors as well. " Dr. Paul is especially proud of the progress of the development of a graduate program in applied mathematics to compliment an already existing program in junior college and secondary education. " Today there are more teaching open- ings in math than there are teachers to fill them. Whereas mathematical science teachers were steered away a few years back, now anybody who really wants a job can get one. " Math 129 History A well-organized staff under the direction of chairperson Dr. Roy Carroll heads a History Department which sets high standards for excellence. Mike Childrey, a History major with hopes of teaching on the high school level feels Appalachian ' s History Department has much to offer: " The department is updated, and the professors are extremely competent and responsive to the needs of students. Also, it offers a wide range of courses to suit both the needs and interests of the students of Appalachian. " A fellow History major, John Speed, agrees, " The subject matter in the department has become so diverse that a person in any major can find a course interesting enough to sacrifice a few of his hours for. " Above: Marv Williamsen, Above Right: Braxton Gilliam 130 History °» " B»o , Geography Once thought of as nothing but capitals and boundaries. Geography now lends itself to a more humanistic approach. The Geography Department at ASU attempts to place a wide range of such current and urgent concerns in a human- geographic context without sacrificing the traditional elements which must be learned. Certainly, the study of longitudes and latitudes still find a prominence in the department, but they are now applied to world crisis situations. Without a doubt. Geography on the ASU campus has become a most interesting and enjoyable course, if not one of the most helpful and effec- tive. Above: Ole Gade and Bill Imperatore Geography 131 The Chemistry Department at ASU has more to offer than test tube experiments. Job opportunities are beginning to look as realistic as ever as the chemistry graduate has a multitude of career paths to choose from. ASU offers classes in industrial chemistry such as research and development, manufacturing, technical sales, and management, as well as the academics which include teaching, research, and administration. 132 Chemistry Biology Biology is not just the most popular way 1200 freshmen finish their science requirements. The department graduates agriculture researchers, drug salesmen, botanists, environmen- tal laboratory workers, and quite a few pre-med students. The ASU Biology Department has expanded to almost five times its size twenty-five years ago. An $80,000 climate controlled greenhouse f or teaching and experimentation purposes is the department ' s newest expansion. Also, students and faculty are provided the opportunity to travel together to study various biomes and biogeographical regions on trips to places such as the Baja Peninsula and Alaska. Biology 133 rm 545A OSCIUOSCOPi Physics In recent years more and more students, especially women, have displayed increasing interests in the various departments of scientific study. Physics is no exception. A hopeful physics major, Karen Satterwhite, explains, " Physics is as challenging as any course offered here at ASU. Much time and effort is needed, yet the rewards make it all worthwhile. Especially noteable about our department is the imagination and com- patability of the professors. Physics is applicable to virtually all academic fields and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to any students undecided with their careers. " Upper Left: Steve Parsons Geology In that Geology cannot be limited to textbooks and lectures the department has many advantages others do not offer. Stu- dents benefit from the experience of field trips as they learn methods and techniques of identification. Not only are our own Blue Ridge surroundings surveyed, but backpacking ex- peditions to the southwest at greatly reduced prices are spon- sored about every six months. Geology 135 Foreign Language The Foreign Language Department stresses extracurricular work outside the usual class and home assignments. Clubs are provided for all students to improve on their knowledge. Opportunities for travel abroad enhance study in foreign languages. " Cer- tainly the hours are long and the work is time-consuming, " says sophomore Diane Sanderson. " I can ' t think of any other classes I ' ve taken where I ' ve had to spend so much time in the lab. But I enjoy French so much, I don ' t consider it as just another class. It ' s one I look forward to. " B-Opjec-Terrorist Aieinpacktaus 136 Foreign Language Foreign Language 137 Philosophy P And Religion With hats off to Anselm of Canterbury, Yes, Virginia: 1. Even the fool who says in his heart " There is no Santa Claus " understands what it means to be Santa Claus. 2. Santa Claus is a right jolly old elf, much that no righter, jollier, older elf can be conceived. 3. It is greater to expect both in reality and in the un- derstanding than in the understanding alone. 4. If Santa Claus did not exist in reality, but existed only in the understanding (was imaginary), then it would be possible to conceive of a righter, jollier, older elf than Santa Claus. But it is impossible to conceive of a righter, jollier, older elf than Santa Claus. (See premise 2.) 5. Therefore Santa Claus, because he is Santa Claus must exist in reality. 6. Therefore, Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus. O.E.D.

Moore. " What makes us the best? Well, we have the best faculty, students, job placement record, and ac- tivities. " In support of Dr. Moore ' s claims are the many grants the department has recently received. The grants include an in- tergovernmental personal grant to support training for governmental officials, and also a two-year grant in support of Criminal Justice. Upper Left: Ritchard Moore, Above: Roland Moy Political Science 139 Psychology Most Psychology majors at ASU will attest to the com- petency of the Psychology department and feel that ASU ' s department is a very good one. Not only do students learn how they can analyze their own problems, but they can learn to analyze themselves and others as well. The department is an interesting one and an informative one especially for the per- son who wants to learn more about himself. - " ■ " ..X neutr % { 4 n , {twy ouh rf ? h ' Pf i zs b«d aX dope ck tk ObfKk r)-2A JzW) • HBH! % Anthropology And Sociology As of July 1, 1979, the Anthropology and Sociology Depart- ment will formally become two separate departments. Sociology majors work in Social Service Agencies, Criminology Related Jobs, and as Social Workers. Anthropology is one of the smaller departments on campus. The thirty Anthropology majors will obtain jobs in state government archeological survey work and state programs of applied anthropology among others. Each summer an archeological field school is held at ASU where students ex- cavate nearby areas to study the pre-history of Western North Carolina. Anthropology and Sociology 141 Bill Boyd " When the college of business was formed in 1971, our goal was to develop the largest and best undergraduate program in North Carolina, by emphasizir the practical applications of business knowledge . . . Currently we are the largest business college in North Carolina . . . We have grown at a compounc growth rate of more than fifteen percent per year. " Dr. Richard Sorensen Accounting Good advertisement for any department is praise from the students. Cindy Helms, an accounting major, says, " The professors in the accounting department are always willing to help anytime and in any way. They are all ex- cellent and experienced in the field of accounting, which benefits the students. Accounting is a demanding major especially as far as time goes. Yet the teachers put in a lot of extra time themselves and take a personal interest in the students. " ASU ' s department is one of the only three accredited schools in North Carolina. Their objective is to prepare students for work in public accounting, non- profit accounting, and industrial accounting, and from the high percentage of ASU graduates who become certified, the department seems to be doing a great job. 144 Accounting Finance and Real Estate I July 1, 1978 marked the creation of the department of Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate. And already there are 25 Finance majors, 20 Insurance majors, and 35 Real Estate majors. Yet around 700 students take their courses yearly as core requirements or business electives. A large future growth of the department is predicted due to statistics of future job availability and need. Graduates from this department can find jobs with Savings and Loan companies as property appraisers, bankers, and brokers. JONES DUDLEY rrzio Lower Left: Clara Lombardo.

Finance and Real Estate 145 Business Education, Office Administration The combined department of Business Education and Office Administration offer four separate degrees: Infor- mation Systems, Office Administration, Business Educa- tion and Distributive Education teaching degrees. The de- mand for majors in these fields today greatly exceeds the supply. Jobs range from teaching to computer operating to office management of industries. Terri Beaver, a Business Education major, praises the department for its teachers. " Our department and faculty are very professional and knowledgeable. The small size of the department means more individualized attention and a more personal understanding among teachers and stu- dents and the students themselves as well. " ' b S , .

" I can pick up a newspaper and relate articles I read in the business section to my economics class. " About the class itself, Guy says, " It really doesn ' t do you any good to memorize the material as I do in other classes. Economics is a thinking person ' s class, the first of its kind I ' ve encountered at Appalachian State. " Above: Dr. Millsaps, Left: Professor Brashear. Economics 147 Marketing Marketing is just one of the majors available with a degree in Business Administration and it offers a number of job opportunities. Marketing majors can find jobs in large or small organizations in marketing research, analysis, or promotional activities, as well as salesmanship. Management covers an even broader spectrum. Positions are found as foremen, plant managers, or management trainees that eventually lead to assistant executive. Archie Cashion, a senior marketing major, participated in an internship offered by ASU ' s School of Business. " The work gave me an insight into what my work would be like after college. I feel that marketing is a very versatile field. " 148 Marketing The Management Department at ASU is, like all divi- sions of the Business College, a good one and is highly praised by the students. " I had taken a multitude of courses in college only to find that they were merely academic, " said management major Bryan Yates. " Management not only provides career opportunities, but also the stimulation and excitement of dealing with peo- ple. " The career opportunities cover a wide area and range from management of a small business to the management of a large corporation. The opportunites themselves are exciting, and for today ' s management major, the field is a promising one. Management 149 College of Fine and Applied Arts «3F» W f«!

Bill Dunlap a faculty member feels, " Art is pleasurable and provides a recess from the rigors of academics. It gives a chance for individual achievement. " Valorie Stribling, a graduate student, agrees with Dunlap. " It is time-consuming yet extremely challenging. Art majors must have a sensitivity to their en- vironment — not necessarily a special talent or creativity. " 152 Art Communication Arts " Our department is a depart- ment of integration, " says Dr. Seong H. Lee about ASU ' s Com- munication Arts department. " By integration I mean that all human communications programs are included: speech communica- tions, telecommunications, ad- vertising, journalism, public rela- tions, and the theater. The stu- dents also feel that the depart- ment is " as good as any CMA department found anywhere. It ' s something ASCI should be proud of. " Upper Left: David Poole, Mark Fraizer. Middle: Andy Seam.

The field of Industrial Arts is a promising one and the ASG department has the records to prove it with a ninety-nine per- cent employment rate. The work is tedious and time-consuming, but the rewards come with the self-satisfaction one receives in accomplishing the many assigned projects. As one In- dustrial Arts major says, " The department is very well organized and very student oriented. The fact that you are almost guaran- teed a job is very reassuring. " Technical Education rji -? The Industrial Arts Department brochure distributed by ASG perhaps best sells the department: " A major in Technical Education with a minor in business provides a strong background for mid-management positions as well as the skills needed to start your ow n business. If you are searching for something better, industrial arts may be your future. " To enhance one ' s deci- sion into Technical Education, the department guarantees one hundred percent employment for graduates. Dargan Moore Technical Education 155 Home Economics The home economics ma- jor of today is not just training to be a housewife. Degrees are offered in food and nutrition, clothing and textiles, housing, interiors, and equipment, and education. Hopefully a master ' s program will be beginning in 1979. The Home Management House, located on Locust Street, is a live-in program of the Home Economics department. Ma- jors live in the four apartments for one semester with their ad- visor where they learn the domestic side of the course. Debi Abernethy, a senior home economics major feels that home economics is a challeng- ing field of jobs and makes a well-rounded person.

" There is a lot of competition in the department among friends, " she states, " but all the students in music are a very close-knit group.

During the year, rappelling, orien- teering, markmanship, and other exer- cises are mastered by ROTC students in weekly laboratories that culminate in a Spring Field Exercise commonly called the " War Games. " In the War Games underclassmen are given a timetable to meet certain objectives — seniors are there to see that they do not. The all-day exercise proves valuable not only as a test of skill and discipline but as the best training ex- perience students can receive. 158 Military Science Physical Education Contrary to popular belief, stamina and great physical build are not the re- quirements of a P.E. major. What is most important is an interest and enjoy- ment of the various sports. Since most majors receive teaching degrees, education courses are required along with the methods courses in which stu- dents learn to teach the sport to others. Marsha Rodgers, a senior P.E. major says, " The whole department is great . . . The teachers develop a close relationship with students and seem to care about you personally.

During their sophomore year, students studying Elementary Education are given the opportunity to work with children, and this experience aids in their decision of whether or not to stick with the major. Most stick with it. Kathy Savage, a K-3 major, ex- presses the general opinion of most elementary education majors by saying, " I feel education is very important in society. There are a lot of changes to be made in today ' s society and the place to start is with the young child in the classroom. I hope to help my students deal effectively with their future. " 166 Elementary Ed Secondary Ed Lower left: Professor Mamola, Below: Beverly Bradbum, Upper left: Bonnie Lee. The Department of Secondary Education is the branch of ASU which trains students for the jobs of teaching high school. The department has had a great deal of success thus far in placing students in the job market. " We ' re generally well received, " speaks department head Dr. W. Thomas Jamison. " Idealistically speaking, among our goals, we at- tempt to help the teacher education student become more aware of how he or she can best meet the needs of youth and contribute to the bet- terment of the teaching profession and society. " Secondary Ed 167 Special Education This is the first year ASU has offered a cross-categorical teacher ' s certification in the areas of the emotionally distur- bed, mentally retarded, and the mentally disabled. Each stu- dent, after core requirements, goes through a series of prac- ticums to obtain practical experience. Each senior goes to the Western Carolina Center for a semester of living and learning experience with handicapped children and another semester is spent student teaching. Michell Guimond, a senior Special Education major, praises ASU ' s department as the best in the state, especially where the epxerience op- portunities are concerned. " After comparing practical ex- perience with academics here, they seem to be straightforward with what is realistically happening in the field so you ' re not totally disillusioned as to the work you end up in. " 168 Special Education Speech Pathology " Above all, there are excellent job opportunities, " states Julie Cooke of her major in Speech Pathology. " It ' s an extremely diversified field. " " We do lack in variety as compared to other major universities across the state, " echos fellow major Sara Scruggs. " But it is a very well accepted program.

Today there are approx- imately sixty degrees offered with almost one thousand graduates yearly. In the past all degrees were primarily associated with teacher educa- tion, but today the greatest ex- pansion is in the College of Business. The newest degrees offered are in Accounting, Business Administration, and Economics, and many more are in the preliminary stages.

" It has to be better than a large university, " says freshman Watauga resident Matt Veasley, " in that the teacher-student ratio is quite low. As for the partying, well, there is no more here than in any other part of campus.

Not only did construction on the library annex begin but construction within the library ' s system continued. Due to noise caused by the machinery outside the library, a study room was set up in Watauga Hall so students could escape the noise. Also in Watauga Hall, Resident Rooms were provided for groups to meet in while working on class projects. Audio-Visual Services, which was located on the first floor of Watauga Hall, provides students with photographic equipment, projectors, tape recorders, and memeographing tacilities. This year the library administration began striving for a better understanding between themselves and the SGA. The library continued in their change over from the Dewey Decimal System to the system used by the Library of Congress. Hopefully this will make the checking out of books easier and quicker as well as helping keep the records more accurate. In the words of Dr. Alvis Corum, Dean of Learning Resources, " One of our goals is to improve ourselves as professionals. As we improve ourselves, we will also improve our relationships with students and faculty. Students are our greatest customers.

THE GAME To play a football game beset in an array of multicolored mountains in Western North Carolina is an event unsur- passed by any other school in the state. Add to that the television personality of Bill Murray, the beauty of queen Melanie Martin, a mild breeze to ward off an unseasonable October warmth, and fifty years of football tradition, and what results is Appalachian State University ' s Homecoming 1978. Although the Mountaineers suffered perhaps their most heartbreaking loss of the season, the homecoming celebration was a definite success. The excitement began when the Apps took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, and the thrills continued throughout the half. The halftime entertain- ment began early when the TKE hot air balloon began threateningly hovering over Owen ' s Field House in the second quarter. The actual halftime festivities brought the action to a climax with the crowning of Melanie Martin as the 1978 Homecoming Queen. As the game continued, tension mounted as the Apps pulled to a 34-28 lead. The victory was not to be, however, and the Buccaneers marched on to win the game by one point. Few of the 14,471 persons in atten- dance were disappointed for the day provided all — beauty, entertainment, and excitement — and the day proved to be one made for the memories.

After last year ' s 2-9 record, the only way to go was up. The Apps returned 35 lettermen for duty in the 1978 season, including four starters on offense and nine on defense. The total on defense was deceptive since it included players who started only five or six games last season. Gone was the all-everything center Gill Beck, halfback Em- mitt Hamilton, placekicker Gary Davis and quarterbacks Robby Price and Chris Swecker. Defensive end Jay McDonald was the only full-time defensive starter not returning from last season. Mountaineer coach Jim Brakefield moved a lot of people around, and the team had its best spring practice ever . . . and most physical. The result was a much more exciting squad in 1978. The coaches and players all worked extremely hard in the spring, and the staff felt that it enjoyed an outstanding recruiting season. A more aggressive team was the result. The Apps were strong at linebacker, running back and defen- sive end but need help along the offensive front. There was plenty of depth at quarterback and in the defensive secondary but it was all young. As a matter of fact, four sophomores bat- tled for the starting quarterback position, vacated by seniors Robby Price and Chris Swecker. None of them got game ex- perience to speak of last year, and the choice was based on fall practice. Coming out of spring drills John Keefe appeared the leading contender. At running back, where ASU was traditionally strong, there was a wealth of tallent. Scott McConnell returned as a senior to lead the group (he was also the team ' s co-captain). Sophomore speedster Arnold Floyd and juniors Dennis McCorkle and Charlie Fowler (the latter two of whom are coming off out- standing performances on the ASU track team) are all available. Eddie Estesreturned at fullback as a senior, but at the end of spring he was at a dead heat with junior Greg Kilday for the starting spot. Estes was the team ' s second leading rusher a year ago with 461 yards and McConnell was third with 442. McCon- nell was the Apps ' leading rusher as a sophomore. Michael Peterson returned as the split end. Russ Wilson anchored the line, where he could play with equal ability at cen- ter, guard or tackle. The team ' s best offensive lineman and a sure all-conference bet, he became alternate offensive captain. The Mountaineers were much stronger defensively. Players have been moved to other positions and in some cases upper- classmen have been beaten out as the Apps seek better move- ment and quickness-along, of course, with strength. The linebacker position settled into good hands, where seniors Pat Murphy, David Bowman and John Wynn have resumed their four-year battle for the two starting spots. Murphy and Bowman, last year ' s starters have the inside shot but all played a great deal. Murphy, the team ' s defensive captain, was surely to be in line for all-star honors. Hardhitting Sami Killman at end was another defensive standout, and Mike Pritchett and Butch Can- nady returned at strong saftey, respectively. Pritchett was alter- nate defensive captain, and the class of the secondary. David Abernathy returned at strong punter, kickoff specialist, and this year added extra points and field goals to his repertoire of kick- ing. He was the third leading punter in the Southern Conference after getting off to a poor start, and pushed for post-season honors and a possible draft. With a schedule that appeared easier than last year ' s, things looked as if they could only go up for the Mountaineers. 184 SPORTS WAY TO GO WAS UP SPORTS 185 Top left: Coach Brakefield keeps a tight reign from the sidelines.

For the trophy case: a sixth Southern Conference Championship in seven years; a third NCAA playoff bid in four years; and an attendance figure unsurpassed by any school in the area. Regular season scoreless ties with the Univer- sity of North Carolina and the University of South Carolina appeared the only blemishes on the Mountaineers 9-0-2 mark. Only three goals were scored upon the Apps in regular season play. If those statistics are not impressive enough, the 9-3 thrashing of highly-regarded George Washington University in the NCAA first round was in- dicative of Mountaineer soccer in 1978. In that playoff game, striker Thompson Usiyan scored a school record of seven goals. Other records set by Usiyan in 1978 include most goals scored in a season (34) and most ASU career goals (56). Amazingly, Usiyan has just completed his sophomore year. For the second time in as many seasons, Appalachian ' s soccer season was laid to rest in the NCAA ' s second round in Clemson. A hard- fought 2-1 overtime loss to the na- tion ' s number two school leaves nothing but hope for the Moun- taineers as they return next season in quest of the national title.

The players have to love the game and they have to possess an undying dedication to the game. Tennis requires an aggressive tem- perament, great concentration and patience, and unlimited endurance along with great physical strength. The hours of exhausting practice involved tax the body both physically and mentally. Yet these athletes realize they have a reputation to uphold for ASU. When they participate in a match, they put forth the best effort possible and no one can ask for more than that.

The team was strengthened this year by the large amount of returnees and the high quality of new players. Coach Donna Breitenstein felt that the team was stronger in the lineup than ever before and also felt that the established lineup was extremely competitive due to the quality of the players. The women were competitive with the top ACC schools in the NCAIAW State Tournament and scheduled tougher teams to keep the girls in top form. A winning tradition has formed on the Women ' s Tennis Team with a record of 30- 7 over the last three years and the girls have every intention of continuing the trend.

In the five centuries since its concep- tion, the basic rules have remained intact. Tradition demands manners and a dress code matched by a pastoral setting unlike any other sport. Whether it be set in the lofty pines of Western North Carolina or the pebble beaches of California, a golf course is breath- taking to behold. Like most sports golf is difficult to master. But unlike most, it is available to anyone who is willing to sacrifice a few lost balls for a couple hours of enjoyment.

The ASU Women ' s Golf Team, coached by Ellen Thomas, is six years old and is still growing. This growth is pursued by the expansion of the program and the improvement of the team. The five women golfers play as individuals yet still support one another as a team.

State basketball press guide is a 77-point win over Appalachian State in 1972. The Mountaineers went on to lose 19 more games that season and compiled a 9-42 mark over the next two years. Since then, however, basketball at ASU has taken great strides in becoming a respectable power in the South. While not quite on the level of play with the neighboring Atlantic Coast Conference, the Mountaineers have repeatedly startled ACC foes until the waning moments of the contests. Victory has been narrowly eluded in the past two years against Maryland, Wake Forest, and Clemson. But perhaps the worst disappointment came this past season in Raleigh. The Moun- taineers held a one-point lead and the ball against the nationally ranked Wolfpack with five minutes remaining in the game, only to lose by eight points. Faining much better in con- ference play, the Apps captured their first regular season title a year ago. Success carried over into the 1978-79 campaign as the Apps registered wins in their first seven games setting a school record. The key to the winning tradition of basketball is unquestionably attributed to head coach Bobby Cremi ns. Cremins ' resume reads more like a book than a page. He took a conference door mat and about-faced it into a champion. For his efforts, Cremins has been named Southern Conference Coach of the Year in two of his first three seasons. Along with assistants Kevin Cantwell and Nate Ross, Cremins enjoys a great rapport with his players unlike many coaches throughout the nation. The three are respected and very well-liked.

" But in 1967 intercollegiate girls ' basketball began again at Appalachian State University. In 1979 women ' s basket- ball traveled a long way. The crowds grew, the publicity was good, and the girls played extremely well. In com- parison to the men ' s basketball team, the women ' s team practiced just as hard, their weight and conditioning programs were just as rigid, and they were easy to motivate in practice. Since competition in the women ' s division was against larger schools, often the fight was for a second place finish behind N.C. State. Playing 25 games the women averaged a win loss record of approx- imately fifty percent. Dr. Judy Clarke, coach since 1972, showed great optimism for the team. " We don ' t have a lot of height and often play taller schools. But the girls com- pensate with extra hustle, quickness, fast-break offense, and pressure defense. We ' re trying to have the best team possible and still teach the idea of winning and losing gracefully. Hopefully, the girls will take what they learn on the court and apply it to life. Often teams are better than ours but if we give a good showing we ' ve won whether the score indicates this or not. " Above right: Tiana McEntire drives to the hoop. Below: C.J.

The stated purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for students to make constructive use of their leisure time. And with programs ranging from golf to shuffleboard to weight lifting, there are activities to interest everyone. The activities are divided into two classes. Structured teams are those that compete against each other. Basketball and softball are the most popular programs.

To be a wrestler one must not only acquire strength and agility, but also skill and intelligence. The fact that every muscle in the body is utilized makes wrestling one of the most healthful sports. The ASU Wrestling Team, coached by Paul Mance, had a number of returning lettermen from the 1977 Southern Conference second place squad this year. One returnee, Mitch Franklin, credits Coach Mance for the team ' s re- cent success: " He does a fine job; he ' s probably our main reason for winning the past couple of years.

Even though the girls play against much larger schools, they continue to uphold a winning season year after year. 228 Sports Sports 229 Bases Loaded Head baseball coach Jim Morris approached the 1979 season with both enthusiastic anticipation and reservation. Morris boasted five starters returning from a team that finished second in the na- tion in hitting and third in scoring. The returning starters included shortstop Randy Ingle (.375), outfielder Joey Moffit (.450, All- Conference leading hitter), Mike Poteat (9 home runs), third baseman Rob Ratchford (.332), and the season ' s captain Kenny McKinney (.310). The returnees were bolstered by a host of junior college transfers including outfielders Mike Hobbs and first basemen Jim Stiles and Rodney Branch. The catching duties were handled by Del Long and Gary Poole. At second base returning lettermen Robert Fink and Greg Grimnet fielded the position. David Farmer, Steve Sacco, Terry Wintzel, Mike Reynolds, Mark Wiggs, and Chris Giles all returned from last season to handle the mound chores. Also providing pitching help were junior college transfers Joel Pyfrom and Joe Kronander. Basketball player Randy Giles, freshman Richard Murphy, and Dean Rasmussen rounded out the staff. Despite the power in the returning five, Morris still had to replace three All-Conference infielders. A brief synopsis of Mountaineer Baseball in 1979 read, " better speed; bet- ter depth; as good as last year defensively, not as much power as last year. " The schedule did not favor the Mountaineers this season. With the likes of Wake Forest, University of North Carolina, Virginia Tech twice, and Clemson twice, Morris felt his 1979 team could perform as well as or better than last year and still not fare well in the overall standing. But with last year ' s retur- nees and this year ' s promising new faces, Mountaineer Baseball proved to be as exciting as ever. Above right: Randy Ingle on the mound.

The ri- fle team has been coached by SFC John Hall since 1977 and the team has done remarkably well. With an excellent season this year, the team proved that they are still on top. Each year the team competes in the Southern Con- ference Match as well as the Western Carolina Con- ference Match. In post-season matches the team shoots the sectional, which determines their national ranking. FIRST ROW: (left to right) Paul Smith. Pam Wood. Pam Rice. Paul Tim- berlake-Team Captain. Leo Storey.

" K-Tel presents songs like: 12 Days of Rugby Disco Rugby The Sound of Rugby Order before midnight and get a free disco dance step booklet! Or come by Room 112 Student Union on August 30 at 7:00 for the rugby meeting! " This is just one sample of how this year ' s rugby club got its start. The rugby team is not a " team " in the true sense of the word. It is a club which pays its dues to the Rugby Union. Although the club is not sponsored by ASU athletics, it still represents ASU in matches. The club is divided into two teams, the A and B teams, and the two usually alternate in matches. The biggest game this season was with Wake Forest. The A team lost but the B team won which was a great accomplishment for the club since Wake Forest has one of the best teams in the state. The club is a dedicated one. The mem- bers are dedicated to the game and to each other. Through their mutual dedications, friendship becomes one of the greates aspects of the club. They play because they truly enjoy the game and hope to make rugby a lasting tradition at ASU. Sports 233 " Gymnastics requires a great deal of time and dedication to be successful. There is no off-season; the girls must practice year round to stay in shape, " said Coach Bill Clinebell who has coached gymnastics for seven years and was, in fact, ASU ' s first gymnastics coach. In December through March the girls competed individually in the dual and tri-meets and added scores for a team total in areas of vaulting, uneven parallel bars, balance beam, and floor exercises. The girls were very competitive in their region with chances for the nationals. Although the meets were open to the public, most of the people at ASU only sampled women ' s gymnastics through their tumbling routines during halftime of the first home basketball game.

" " The manner in which he represents his university. " " Dedication. " Appalachian State soccer coach Hank Steinbrecher, basket- ball coach Bobby Cremins, and women ' s basketball coach Judy Clarke attribute these qualities and agree on many others in dif- ferentiating between a good athlete and an athlete. Whereas the athlete possesses the natural ability in his or her sport, the good athlete does not settle for natural talent. A willingness to learn, improve, and strive to be the best can be easily detected. Easy to coach? Championships are built around these people. Says Steinbrecher, " Their willingness to work and their professionalism toward their sport are vital. We have many such men on the soccer team. " " Certainly they practice hard- er, " claims Clarke. " They also perform with more per- sistence. " On the university level academics cannot be stressed enough by the coaches. " Definitely academics, " exclaims Cremins. " A good athlete represents the college he plays for. He is never bigger than the school printed on his uniform. " " He is professional in manner, " adds Steinbrecher. " He views the coach as the boss and himself as a player, not the other way around. " For the females, they must not only abide by the regular athletic qualities in order to succeed, but they must defeat the obstacle of lack of recognition. " I believe women are more willing to work than men. They have to be, " says Judy Clarke. " Women have had less opportunities, less advantages. The men have never had to shoot for recognition. " Willing and dedicated? They are the first ones to practice and the last to leave. Academically inclined? Taking pride in their school, they are intelligent enough to know they are students first, athletes second. These qualitie s are just some of the reasons that ASU produces good athletes. And a good athlete is always a credit to his school. 238 Sports Above: Carol Almond and Coach Toni Wvatt during an inter- view with Bob Taylor after the East Carolina game.

Sports 239 On our own and trying ... " Appalachian Ski Mountain plays a vital role for the ASU Ski Team. Without the mountain ' s cooperation and willingness to let the team practice, there would probably be a " quick race downhill " for the group. The ski team is a private club, with no funds coming from the university because of the " high injury risk. " Therefore, steep mem- bership fees and fundraisers, such as a ski swap, provide necessary money for entry fees. For five or six Fridays in the winter, the team competed in the Southern Collegiate Ski Racing Association with six other teams. The team ' s members come from the larger ski clubs af- ter weekly time trials. Five males and five females race each week. As John Fitzgerald, ASU ' s Ski Team captain said, " We ' re on our own and trying to make it but really enjoying every minute of it. " Right: Tim Frankel.

RABINDRANATH TAGORE, STRAY BIRDS Sports 245 Mountaineers, At the outset of the year the sports staff was made quite aware of their responsibilities to the student body as a staff. We would like to thank everyone that made the carrying out of those responsibilities easier. Many long hours on foot and phone were logged around the campus. Our thanks go to these people in the Athletic Office, the P.E. Office, and especially in the Sports Information Department. Without them we could not have done this section correctly. We deeply ap- preciate all their assistance. We would, however, like to say that we feel apologies are in order to some athletes. In the statistics section not all the stats are included. The sports staff cannot be held responsible for this circumstance. We printed absolutely all the statistics we were able to obtain after repeated requests. We sincerely hope that this situation will not occur again. Sincerely, The Sports Staff Sports Editor Assistant Sports Editor 246 Sports Sports 247 Spiral In the past few years, there has been a big increase in the membership of the fraternities and sororities here at A. S. U. We are represented by six fraternities and four sororities with an average of forty members in each group. Unity among diversity is the theme of the A. S. U. fraternity system. Each member retains his or her individuality while becoming part of a larger group. The fraternity system provides individual leadership, expression, creativity, scholarship and growth. It also provides a person an opportunity to interact and bond together with other men and women. Mm hlsmmm EOsMIi irajmmy m Creeks 249 The presidents of the six fraternities at ASU were inter- viewed to find out just what it is like to be in a fraternity and what their feelings are. The unanimous feeling is that frater- nities provide dependable, lifelong friends. Chris Jones, Kappa Sigma president feels that being a fraternity brother has helped him meet many new friends and has brought him closer to campus life, businesswise as well as socially. Joe Norwood, KA president feels that joining the fraternity helps a person learn his strengths, weaknesses, and his all- around potential. Mickey Smith of Pi Kappa Phi feels that his position as president brings him closer to the majority of the brothers. Larry Vannoy of Lambda Chi Alpha feels that a fraternity should be a " cohesive effort in obtaining the goals of the group. " Larry feels that there is more to fraternity life than just partying, such as the fund raising events all frater- nities participate in. Randy McCaslin, president of TKE, feels that fraternity life entails a group of people with com- mon interests and goals in mind. Dean Mills, president of Sigma Phi Epsilon feels that Brotherhood is the key to being in a fraternity. One obtains the ability to work with others and to share in an atmosphere of friendship. The fraternities do have a good time, but partying is not the main aspect of Greek life. The responsibilities shared by the members, the accomplishments achieved, and the friendship shared by all of the brothers makes for an experience that all fraternity brothers agree is a worthwhile one.

The Interfraternity Council is a special council of the Stu- dent Senate which deals specifically with local and national social fraternity organizational activities. The Council is composed of two members from each social fraternity recognized by the university. The purpose of the Council is to promote and maintain fraternal ideals, spirit, and leadership among fraternities— particularly in the areas of scholarship, service, and brotherhood. The body fosters and insures cooperation among the fraternities and all recognized clubs and organizations within the University, and also among the fraternities, the student body, and the administra- tion. Dino DiBernardi is the advisor of the Interfraternity Council. As well as presiding over the weekly meetings of the IFC, he also works with the Panhellenic Council to help coordinate activities between the fraternities and sororities on campus.

This organization is formed from pledges representing the social sororities recognized by the University. The Panhellenic Council is more or less the female counterpart to the Interfraternity Council. Each social sorority is represented on the council by two of their members. This council is respon- sible for maintaining and promoting the interests of social sororities on campus.

Lambda Chi Alpha is built on a series of honest friendships. Its heritage is based on human vision, need, understanding, idealism, and love. Lambda Chi Alpha provides ser- vices to benefit national organizations, the com- munity, and the campus such as their heart fund raiser at the local nursing home. They provided Christmas presents for the children at the Grandfather Home for Children. They participated in the Watauga County " Clean- up " and they aided in the United Cerebral Palsey Foundation fund-raising drive. Lambda Chi Alpha strives to help others out- side of the fraternity in an effort to foster brotherly love among all men.

The Kappa Sigma Fraternity on the ASU campus is one of the leading fraternities on campus. To make such a bold statement, there must be proof of this leadership. Kappa Sigma contributes both to the school and community. With countless social and service functions, intramural activities, and oppor- tunities for leadership roles, Kappa Sigma provides its members with valuable learning experiences.

Pi Kappa Phi was the first national frater- nity on the ASU campus, and it is the fastest growing frater- nity in the country. The ASU chapter makes up one of the top chapters in the organization and has consistently won recognition for their service and social activities. The frater- nity has received the National Service Award for their work with retarded children and has won many other coveted national awards. When goals a re achieved, they are done so in a way which strengthens their bond of brotherhood. Their " one of a kind " rush party at the Holiday Inn drew nearly 700 people. Becoming a Pi Kapp is truly a personal ex- perience and it is being shared by more and more men at ASU. A group of Pi Kappa Phi members gather before a clean up they had throughout Watauga County during the past year. Greeks 257 GREEK WEEK : M1: Greek Week is composed of a series of games, events, and social activities occurring over a period of five to seven days. Every social fraternity and sorority recognized by the IFC and Panhellenic Councils participates. The purpose of Greek Week is to promote cooperation and interaction through friendly competition. It also provides for campus-wide exposure of the en- tire Greek system. As the Greek word " Panhellenic " means, the event is truly a gathering of the Greeks spon- sored to promote interfraternal cooperation, friendship, and fun. Building pyramids, beer drinking con- tests, and five-legged races are only a few of the many activities of Greek Week. 258 Greeks 10 E Sigma Phi Epsilon FIRST ROW: (left to right) Dennis Slade, Bill Hawkins, Fuzzy Nelson, Rick Miller, Doug Harwood.

Sigma Phi Epsilon experienced a banner year in both growth and involvement. During Greek Week of 1978, Sig Ep was awarded for having the highest Grade Point Average of the fraternities on campus. Fall Rush brought the largest growth for the fraternity since its charter in 1975. These factors strengthened Sigma Phi Epsilon as a social service fraternity and aided the promotion of Greeks at ASU. The fraternity is active in all intramural sports and in local fund raisers. They assisted the Heart Fund and Grandfather Home Orphanage with various service projects. Socially, the Founder ' s Day Formal at Smoke Tree Lodge highlighted the fall. The frater- nity ' s activities and stress of brotherhood have strengthened Sigma Phi Epsilon at ASU. Along with service and social projects, Sigma Phi Epsilon also participated in intramurals.

By expanding social life among its brothers, Kappa Alpha creates respon- sibility and dependability through brotherhood for the improvement of the community and campus. Kappa Alpha promulgates all ideas of the order and main- tains the fine Southern heritage upon which the fraternity was founded. Among its many activities throughout the year, Kappa Alpha works together with its Little Sisters, the Southern Belles, in fund raising events and in many social events with other fraternities.

They also per- form each spring with the Appalachian Dance Ensemble in Farthing Auditorium.

Not Pic- tured: Joan Freeze, Glenda Henderson. The ASU majorettes have a reputation — one they must live up to: that of the entire Band of Distinction ' s good name. As soon as spring tryouts yielded the squad, the girls started prac- ticing often four hours daily. Group twirling routines had to be worked out to music and occasionally a dance routine was performed. During the 1978 football season, hoop batons were used for the first year. A lot of effort and work was spent keeping in shape for uniforms, too. Majorettes not only have to have talent, but they also must be willing to dedicate hours of hard work, as the final output proved. The Majorettes await the starting note to begin their routine.

The club is geared toward Spanish stu- dents who want to learn more about Spanish customs and traditions. They achieve this goal during their meetings and parties which they often speak entirely in Spanish. At many " tertulias " the members sample Spanish foods, read books on Spanish cultures, and see films which are produced and spoken in Spanish. Truly, the Spanish Club, or la ter- tulia, does not have meetings typical of most other clubs on campus. 300 Organizations if ( , ., ILf 7 $ Student Planners Association FIRST ROW: Eric Frazier, Emily Skeen, Stan Poston, Dave Hedberg.

Appreciation 379 380 Experience In Remembrance of Some Very Special Friends We have traveled many different roads in our lifetime, And at some point, we traveled them together. For some unknown reason, fate has found it necessary To part us once again. But I carry a little of you with me wherever I go — Whatever I am today is partly dependent On our adventures together, And whatever I will be tomorrow is built on our yesterday. I never got a chance to thank you for being you. This is my thanks for that part of your life You gave to me.
