PERSONAL With such a variety of cultures and ages here at ASU, each person ' s past- times were unique. Stu- dents had a large choice of activities to take a break from school. Some students preferred the nightlife scene. A va- riety of clubs boasted many different types of atmo- spheres all within a close proximity to campus. Other times, students preferred to catch the latest movies. The MU Cinema and other local theatres all offered current movies tai- lored to the student bud- get. Although there were many different types of en- tertainment for groups and individuals, still one of the most popular escapes was to find that special some- one and spend time togeth- er away from the rigors of school. Such a variety of choices enhanced the free time students had as well as their personal devillu- sions. Taking a break from a week of classes are juniors Bob Castle and Scott Troyanos. Roadtripping to Place! such as Mexico and Ca- lifornia was common among ASU students who needed some rest and relaxation.

No. An ASU sporting event? Close, but not quite. No, it was none of the above, but the first game of the brand-new Phoenix Cardinals. " People here just went crazy! " said Joe Schmidt, who worked at Arizona Sports and Shorts on Mill Avenue. " After wanting an NFL team for so long, the fans were just ready to cheer on the Cardinals. " After so much deliberation during spring 1988, it seemed as though Ar- izona ' s NFL team would never become a reality. But the decision was finally made, and before long, it was time for the Cardinals ' first home season game. As early as 1:00pm Monday afternoon, people crowded all around the campus area, having tailgate parties. " The pre- game parties are half the fun of going to the game, " said Joseph Carrington, a Phoenix resident. " If you build up a lot of enthusiasm beforehand, you cheer ex- tra loud. " Most of the spectators cheered extra loud during that first game. Residents of halls close to the stadium said they could hear the crowd all evening. Even though the Cardinals lost the first game, that did not dampen the crowd ' s spirits. " There ' s always room to improve, " Carrington said. The Cardinals did shape up and even moved to first place in the NFC East for some time. " There ' s something about having an NFL team here that just makes the area more fun, " said Ted James, who worked at Edsel ' s Attic on Mill Avenue. " It ' s great to have a team to cheer for. It kind of brings the community together.

For those who preferred to sit and socialize rather than dance, many dif- ferent atmospheres were available. The Dash Inn looked like a sleepy dive from the outside, but inside it was a crowded place with good margaritas and inex- pensive Mexican food. Bandersnatch was a popular choice for spikers, because an outdoor vol- leyball court allowed students to play a round before going inside for refreshment. This spot was unique for brewing its own beer on the property. " My friends and I argue a lot about where to go, " said junior Suzanne Seiffei. " Some of us will want to just go have pitchers, and the others will want to dance. There ' s too many places to pick from. But that ' s a good CAROLYN PYE It was a night of (right.

Often on a weekend night, students wanted to go dancing. There was a va- riety of options, all close to campus. The Sun Devil House was one of the most popular dance spots.

Every- one could go dancing, but some were left out if they weren ' t old enough to get in. Thus the idea of " over- under night " was born at The Sun Devil House. This ena- bled anyone over 18 to get in, and those who were 21 re- ceived hand stamps so they could go behind the plexi- glass screen and drink. Em- ployees stood by the entrance to the drinking area to check for the stamps.

Between classes, studying and a variety of weeknight hangouts, students had a variety of choices to keep them- selves busy. WEEK NIGHT LIFE Where to go What to do Who to see Dna Heads Deed Hentis After a hectic day of classes and meals grabbed on the run, students usually prefered to satisfy their hunger at a more palatable place such as Flakey Jake ' s. A build-your-own-burger bar and a socia- ble atmosphere made this a popular din- ner spot. For those students who prefered to catch the latest movie, there were many options. The Valley Art, University and Memorial Union theaters offered the lat- est movies for a dollar admission price. The Sun Devil Six, in the nearby Cor- nerstone Mall, often housed crowds of people for sneak-preview movies. Despite all the choices of weeknight activity, there were always people stud- ying in the campus libraries during the week. After a night of hitting the books, students often wandered over to McDonald ' s or other Memorial Union restaurants for a late-night snack. The ASU community offered a variety of activities for students on the week- nights. " That ' s one thing bad about go- ing to school at ASU, " said Julie Phelps, freshman liberal arts major. " There ' s al- ways something to do or somewhere to go. A lot of times it ' s easy to forget studying for a night or twork CAROLYN PYE Layout by Kate Boyd over text- books and lecture notes, Ellen (.eland and Karen White spend some time studying in the library. Far from the maddening crowds packed in the many restaurants around campus lurk true ASU students. In- stead of wailing in movie lines or sitting in restau- rants, these students were checking out resources and frantically writing informa- tion on their term papers. Despite the many tempta- tions to " join the crowds, " these students could be found filling the numerous tables in the Hayden and Noble libraries.

The result was a campus filled with work fences, buildings in various stages of construc- tion and lots of extra noise. Andrew Mark, an Arizona State senior, said all the construction was an inconvenience. " ASU needs some sort of method to limit its growth because we ' re running out of room, " Mark said. " I don ' t think they should tear down the old buildings to put up new ones. " Senior Mary Badini agreed. " It ' s a pain to have to walk around the library to get to the MU from the Social Science building. " Older students remembered when the Hayden " pit " was a beautiful grassy, green area with cool shade trees and park benches. Steve Taxman, a second- year graduate student, realized he would be gone before all of the construction was completed. " It ' ll be great once everything ' s finished, " Taxman said. " Too bad I won ' t be around to enjoy it. " Freshman Jen Johnson had a more op- timistic opinion about the construction. " It ' s nice to see advancement, " Johnson said. " Hayden library will be accessible to a lot more students once it ' s finished. " Claudine Babinski, freshman, did not have any complaints either. " The con- struction doesn ' t really bother me, " Babinski said. " I think it ' ll be worth all the hassle in the end.

Area merchants donated prizes. Thursday was Cultural and Fine Arts Day. ASASU sponsored art displays and an activities fair in the Memorial Union. Night activities included a party with a luau, movies, comedy and swimming. The final day, Friday, was Leadership and Spirit Day. This featured an open house at the University Activity Center and a pep rally that night. " 1 thought that most of the programs would be geared to freshmen only, " said Suzanne Wellsley, who transfered to ASU from a college in California. " It was really informative about the different campus resources.

Layout by Darryl Smith homecoming was a tradi- tion that brought ASU alumni back year to year, there were many changing features that added to the events. The traditional football game and parade had not changed over the years, but the events leading up to them were new and different. This year ' s homecoming theme, " Gold Rush 1988 " tied in ASU ' s school colors with the Olympic year. The homecoming week events tied in the theme and were geared to involving as many students as possible. Homecoming 88: Spurred spirit Blasts Beavers A competition day, held in front of the Student Services building, involved bal- loon-shaving races, among other events. KZZP radio station broadcasted live from the center of the action. A newly revived tradition was the " Light the A " ceremony. Students il- luminated the ' A ' on Tempe butte to be seen for miles around. In addition, Walt Richardson and a Show of Hands per- formed under a fireworks display. Another event that had recently made a comeback was the homecoming ball. Co-sponsored by the homecoming com- mittee and the Stu- dent Alumni Asso- ciation, those who organized the dance wanted to attract a variety of students. " It ' s not what most people ex- pect of a homecoming ball, " said , homecoming co-chairman. The ball was decorated in the atmo- sphere of a trendy Los Angeles night- club. Although homecoming was a contin- uing tradition, the homecoming commit- tee members added to the tradition by providing different events that would appeal to all students and alumni.

Also, there were plenty of carnival games and rides to hold eve- ryone ' s interest. Although Springiest provided a good time for everyone, its main goals were to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis and to present the students of ASU to the eral public. " 1 think Springiest is a great skill-learning opportunity for the student body, " Skiller said.

But that didn ' t stop the Spr- ingiest crew from putting on a temfic show. ASASU teamed up with Coors Light and KUPD radio station to sponsor a spring carnival benefiting Multiple Sclerosis. " Our main event in the fall is Homecoming, " said Lye Skiller, Assis- tant Director of Special Events for ASASU. " We wanted to host a major event in the spring too. " And so the idea of an annual Springiest was born. This year ' s Springiest carnival was held at the Tempe Diablo stadium.

The event, open to the pub- lic, attracted people of all ages. Although this was ASU ' s first spring carnival, the other Arizona univer- sities had had them for years. The University of Arizona ' s Spring Ming was the largest student-run car- nival in the nation. North- ern Arizona University ' s Spring Fever was a tradi- tion dating back to the 1970 ' s. ASU ' s student leaders were hoping to start a similar tradition that would also weather the years.

The new comedy club, which opened in Septem- ber, provided top-notch comedians, usu- ally to a packed house. Located in the Cornerstone mall, the Improv club previously housed the Cin- ema n ' Drafthouse. Poor reception by Tempe residents caused this spot to close. It did not appear that the Improv club would fade out in the same way. With several other locations na- tionwide, the Improv was able to rotate a variety of well-known co- medians. The Improv also had an advan- tage of being one of the only com- edy clubs in Tempe. Many students would visit Seekers comedy night- club in Scottsdale, but the Improv gave them a closer alternative. For the admission price, which ranged from $6 during the week to $8 on the weekends, three comedians appeared during a two-hour show, with the best reserved for last. While reviewing the Improv, Tom Parks, a " Tonight Show " regular, ap- peared before a full-house crowd on a weeknight. Also scheduled to appear was " Skippy, " the annoying neighbor from the television series " Family Ties. " The atmosphere, which included black-and-white checkered floors and glass block walls, suggested a hint of the 1950 ' s. The ambiance and nearby lo- cation made the Improv Club an ideal place for a date or an evening with friends, and a popular spot for ASU stu- dents.

Fee Waybill and the Tubes made it. They all got a start here in the Valley, and reached the pinnacle of national stardom. It was this dream that kept the many area bands playing night after night, making the circuit of Tempe nightclubs. Many bars around campus strove to attract local talent. Edcel ' s Attic, located in downtown Tempe, boasted groups such as Walt Richardson, the Strand and Gin Blossom. The club owner, Ed Chiongdian, said the criteria for a band to play there was its potential growth, following and professionalism. " We ' re unique in the Valley in that we are cul- tivating the local music scene, " Chiong- dian said. " Other clubs take mature bands. We ' re more of a training ground. " Owners of another nearby spot, the Sun Club, sought a variety of sounds, but mostly college and modem music. According to Joseph Ricci, the booking manager, the club ' s policy was to take a demo tape, and see where else the band had played. Audience appeal was an- other im- p n t CRANKED up Garner- i ng local support was a requirement for any band to make it big. One of the most promising local bands this year was Chuck Hall and the Brick Wall. This group consistently drew large crowds in Valley bars. The Brick Wall consisted of Chuck Hall on lead vocals, Scott Andrews on drums and Mark Riggs on bass and back- OM Hark up vocals. Because the trio had been together as part of an earlier band, the group managed to avoid much of the struggle for a following. Playing in local bars was the way to increase the exposure that the Brick Wall needed, but it could take its toll on any band. " We have to make a living, but we don ' t want to play in bars all our lives, " Hall said. " It ' s a real gamble. " The band members hoped to sign on with a record label in the near future. " We ' re looking for a situation that will nurture the band and our style of music, " Riggs said. Until that magic moment would come with the big break, the lives of many Valley musicians were filled with several bills and few dollars.

The ASU Col- lege of Fine Arts alone offered a plethora of events that could keep the average student entertained virtually every night of the week. From dance to theatre to music performance there was enough variety and style to please the widest range of tastes. One of the most reknowned and pop- ular attractions was the Lyric Opera The- atre. Their productions included a Rod- gers and Hart revue, Mozart ' s Cosi Fan Tutte, " Stop the World ...

Music enthusiasts also had much to enjoy throughout the year. The Student Jazz Combo, ASU Symphonic and Con- cert Bands, Choral Union and Concert Choir, and University Symphony Or- chestra all continued to show increased interest and attendance. In addition, solo recitals by prominent instrumental ma- jors and faculty provided an opportunity for further cultural and musical diversity on campus. Equally numerous were the presen- tations of the Department of Dance. Their recitals featured the compositions, choreography, and performances of ASU ' s finest dance students and staff. Highlighting the year was " Off Bal- ance " , a presentation of senior dance majors; the annual Cakewalk Jazz Show, a exhibit of popular dance throughout American history; " Time Out For Dance " , and " Leap the Wall " .

TOVASItIne Puurn Layout by David Kexel T he 1988-89 school year was a banner year for the Lecture Series, Political Union and other organizations who brought speakers to campus. According to Jennifer Martin, director of the Political Union, th ere was un- precedented student involvement, which is usually very difficult to obtain with a large commuter campus such as ASU. Speakers were chosen after selection committees spoke to students and pro- fessors concerning who they would like to see on campus. Such dialogues brought such speakers as Henry Cisneros, mayor of San An- tonio, John Stockwell, and Steve Benson to ASU where they were met with fa- vorable responses from faculty as well as students. Stockwell, a former CIA agent, attracted well over 700 people to his lecture, due to the large amount of pub- licity given the lecture by professors and the Political Union. Topics of great interest or controversy also brought many students to the lec- ture halls, The Proposition 106 (English Only) debate drew over 500 people, while the evolution-creation debate was also well-attended. The Political Union also sponsored " Voice on the Mall " , where many of the candidates from ASU ' s legislative district had the oppor- tunity to share their opinions with stu- dents around election time. This gave ASU students, faculty, and staff a chance to ask questions and get a personal view of each candidate, something that would have been improbable without an open forum such as " Voice on the Mall " . The fall semester also featured appear- ances by prominent government and po- litical leaders. The highlight was the political rally 1 tic caa the University Activity Center drew a large audience including former Arizona governor and one-time presidential aspirant Bruce Babbitt, who introduced Jack- son to enthusiastic crowd. Second semester started with the taping of the Morton Downey, Jr. show in Grady Gammage Auditorium. His ap- pearance was sponsored by the Political Union, although no honorarium was paid. Gammage was chosen as the tap- ing site so that Downey could be closer to his largest audience, college students, and so that they could be given a dis- count on tickets for the show. The second semester brought Con- gresswoman Pat Schroeder, and Maki Mandela, daughter of imprisoned South African human rights leader Nelson Mandela.

Former President Ronald Reagan was the keynote speaker for the Insuring To- morrow leadership conference March 20 - at the University Activity Center. Before a capacity crowd of over 8,000 people, Reagan discussed various topics including the role of young people in politics today. He emphasized the lower voter turnout in elections and gave var- ious ideas for solutions. He also discussed the deficit, the im- portance of the line item veto and the reassessment of the way congressional districts are divided to alleviate stacking of voters for either party. The second half of his hour long speech was dedicated to a dialogue ses- sion formulated by questions from the participants of the first annual National Issues Conference of Insuring Tomor- row. " We knew we wanted someone who was big and would give credibil- ity to the program at a national level, " said Sal Rivera, student coordi- nator of Insuring To- morrow. " He was a long shot, really. It ' s kinda like a dream come true. " Reagan used the question and answer session to attack congressional spending and to address the abortion issue as well as the increased scrutiny by the press of potential government officials. According to ASASU President John Fees, the two-month process of stress . and strain of obtaining Reagan as the speaker paid off. " For him to accept our offer was a great honor for us, " Fees said. " We just sent him a letter explaining what our program was about and then he wrote us back to accept. " This was Reagan ' s first public speak- ing appearance outside California since leaving the White House. Although early speculation by the press attached a $50,000 price tag to Reagan ' s visit, he chose to visit the cam- pus for free. " There never was a fee or a number, " Fees said. " We were still talking to the Washington Speaker ' s Bureau at the time and that is where the miscommunication came up.

Arizona universi. two An between the Mew ASU-UofA rivalry lasted through the years, surviving changes in coaches, administration and students. Students at both universities thought their school was superior and the other was worthless. Both universities claimed to be the first in Arizona, and that the other was merely following in their foot- steps. Who was right? What added a twist to the rivalry was that they both were. While the property which is now ASU was acquired and developed a year be- fore UofA, the school was Tempe Nor- mal School, Tempe State Teachers Col- lege and many others before it finally became Arizona State University in 1958. The University of Arizona was es- tablished in 1885. Every year, students anticipated the " Big Game " between the two schools in November. Held at the alternating school each year, the football game drew crowds of students from the home turf as well as carloads of roadtrippers. Watching the crowd could often be as much fun as the game itself. " Part of the fun is trying to psyche out the ASU fans, " said Karen Davis, a UofA student. " I think (ASU fans) take it a lot more personally than we do when they make fun of us. " Large banners made by students were always strung across each student sec- tion. ASU banners read " Screw the U, " or " Castrate the ' Cats. " This year, UofA ' s banners read " Arizona State has the 5-0-1 blues, " referring to ASU ' s in- ability to beat UofA in football since 1981. This streak irritated ASU students im- mensely, especially in 1983 and 1985, when UofA ' s victory over ASU knocked the Sun Devils out of the Rose Bowl berth. But even when there was nothing on the line but the victory, the bothered ASU stu- loss still intensely dents. " Our team freaks out when they play Uo(A, " said Todd Stevens, a senior mar- keting major. " Even in our best years, like when we won the Rose Bowl, we couldn ' t do it. I have a lot of friends at that school, but I try to avoid them when November comes around. " The intense rivalry between the two schools was by no means limited to the yearly football game. ASU athletes strove to defeat UofA in every sport pos- sible. It was a personal victory as well as a team one for many athletes. Basketball was no exception to this sports rivalry, but it was an area where the UofA dominated. Last spring UofA achieved the pinnacle of NCAA basket- ball by reaching the Final Four tourna- ment. Although it looked good for Arizona to have a team in the Final Four, many ASU fans said they just couldn ' t bring themselves to root for the team they had cheered against for so long. Students usually agreed with the popular saying, " My two favorite teams are the Sun Dev- ils and whoever is playing UofA. " In addition to the sports rivalry, many ASU students felt cheated because the university in Tucson received a larger share of state funding than ASU did, despite the fact that ASU had nearly 15,000 more students. " UofA was smart to get the medical school. That is a main reason for the higher funding they receive, " said Thomas Shapley, a visiting ASU pro- fessor who had spent considerable time at UofA giving lectures. " ASU used to just take UofA for grant- ed because they (ASU) were ahead in almost all areas, " Shapley said. " But UofA caught up. At least it keeps both schools on their toes.

Although all of these visions defined ASU, what was really underneath these illusions? Looking through the surface layers of Greek sweatshirts, trendy sportswear and tanned and toned bo- dies, all that remained were people. Peo- ple who daily faced A little REALITY. Dating took on a new meaning at ASU as students cautiously approached new relationships. Casual sex was a thing of the 60 ' s and 70 ' s as AIDS threatened everyone. As the divorce rate skyrock- eted, more single parents attended ASU adding a new angle to dating. Drug and alcohol addictions added fuel to the fue of student problems. Anti- drug campaigns like the ASASU ' s " The Choice For Me, Drug Free " hoped to combat drug abuse. America ' s drug problem became a political issue as presidential candi- dates promised to fight drug traffick- ers abroad. In search of a perfect image, stu- dents pumped iron, tanned all year long and stuck to fad diets. However, this de- 1... toth, sire to look their best often resulted in pulled muscles, skin cancer and eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. As AIDS added another deadly twist to the 80 ' s, fear brought that three- lettered word, sex, out of the closet Events like the Cholla sex party hoped to shed light on AIDS and teach students about safe sex practices. The " Rubber Maids, " part of Arizona Women Advo- cating AIDS Responsibility and Educa- tion or A.W.A.R.E., also headed projects to increase campus awareness. Exchanging " we ' s " for " me ' s, " college students seemed to forget about human- ity and focused on higher incomes. More business majors and less education ma- jors supported this move to the " yuppie " generation. As the word protest went out with 60 ' s jargon like groovy and peace, social awareness became almost mean- ingless words in students ' vocabulary. Money, however, seemed to trip a switch when it came to social awareness. As the Arizona Board of Regents pro- posed to raise tuition $156, student voices battled the increase. During the fall semester, nearly 1,000 students ral- lied and picketed against the proposed hike. Besides annual tuition, money was vital for daily survival and often gen- erated a delicate balancing act between jobs and academics. Students scanned the employment board in Student Services for job leads on or off campus. Although snap- shots in ASU bro- chures seemed much more enjoy- students had to look beyond Sun Devil football games, a sun- drenched campus and students heading down Palm Walk.

' TJag g T areer, kids, " Hey, babe, what ' s your sign " contrasted a 1980 ' s, " Let ' s do lunch " as dating changed over the decades. As individual ' s goals focused on careers, and single parents returned to the classroom, dating took on a whole new meaning. At ASU, at least 15 percent of the students were divorced. Divorced stu- dents re-entering the dating scene after some time often found differences from when they were dating as younger stu- dents. " There are so many aspects to dating now, " said Beverly Gomez, a divorced student who later returned to school. " When I was entering college right out of high school, you were either going steady or you weren ' t. Now there are all these distinctions. You can be ' just friends ' , or you ' re seeing someone casu- ally but also seeing others. Or people still ' go steady, but that seems less common. " A May 1988 Cam- pus Life magazine ar- ticle comparing col- lege students of different decades showed these tions to be common among college students nationwide. While in 1965, 60 percent of college stu- dents surveyed had a steady boyfriend or girlfriend, in 1987 only 20 percent were " going steady. " However, 52 per- cent said they were " seeing someone casually, " and only 40 percent of stu- dents believed they would find the per- son they would marry at college, com- pared to 70 percent in 1965. ap eople take more time to know each other now, " said Dan Mahem, a 30- year-old accounting student who was al- so divorced. " When I was in high school, people assumed you went to college to get two things a degree and a spouse. There just isn ' t that attitude anymore. " Mahem attributed this difference to the increased success of women in ex- ecutive positions and a more mature at- titude among college students. " Both men and women in my earlier college years thought they would find that per- fect person and live ' happily ever after. It just isn ' t that way, and students can see that reality now. Also, women aren ' t going to follow men to the ends of the earth, but they now will follow their own goals. Both men and women realize there is time to see the real world a bit first, then settle down. " Another dimension of the dating scene that had changed through the years is that women were more likely to initiate the first date. A Glam- our magazine survey showed that 90 per- cent of college men said that women should make the first move more often to meet a man. " I ' d love it if a girl called me to ask me for a date, " said Andy Hemrick, a junior engineering ma- jor. " These are modern times, and wom- en and men should be equal in as many aspects as possible, especially dating.

' n keriA riEALIT1 alcohol mix disaster it a tall cold one, a Friday fix, a stress reliever. Kegs, coolers and cocktails. All alcohol, all drugs. While drug abuse could not be com- pletely solved, organizations provided by the student health center and ASU ' s Department of Public Safety were avail- able to students who had gotten in too deep and needed help. According to statistics provided by the student health center, over 80 percent of the students at ASU had at some time used alcohol, the most popular drug among college students. In addition, there was a high percentage who had used the second and third most popular drugs, marijuana and cocaine, although these were illegal and much less abun- dant than alcohol. Carla Fortunato, substance abuse counselor for the ASU student health center, ex- plained that al- though illegal drugs were less abundant, they were not difficult to obtain. " All drugs are available if they (students) want them, " Fortunato said. As a counselor, Fortunato ' s job was to assess and evaluate the student to see if a problem existed, then provide treatment through the cost-free extensive counsel- ing program at the center. Fortunato said she was especially con- cerned with the problems of alcohol poi- soning, and referred to alcohol as a " drug to be respected " because of its danger and fatality potential. " Students don ' t realize how close they come when they pass-out after drink- ing, " Fortunaro said. " The next stage after that is coma. " Fortunato stressed the danger of pop- ular drinking games, explaining that the body cannot digest the alcohol as fast as it comes in. " Drinking was never meant to be a sport, " Fortunato said. Fortunato said students should not at- tempt to solve the drug problems them- selves, because extensive counseling was needed for positive results. The health center also sponsored pro- gramssuch as alcohol awareness week, which promoted responsible drinking. ASU police department also worked to combat the problems involving drug abuse. The de- partment took the approach of aware- ness, offering alco- hol and drug abuse presentations to students. An ex- tensive drug task force had also been developed. Rather than hard-core prosecu- tion, however, the ASU police were more interested in education and en- forcement, accord- ing to police Cpl. R.B.
