Was stomping the Wildcats more than facing the economic pressures of the " real " world? Was the comfort of walking past the MU without getting yelled at by a preacher worth stifling free speech? You decide. Passing through Cady Mall, students make their way to class while others congregate around Preacher ' s Fountain. The fountain outside of the Memorial Union was re-named because of the preachers who made it their pulpit of the school.

" Being in a group deal with a lot of and The freinds get out of it makes it Photos by Craig Valenzuela he first thing you notice about Brigid O ' Neil is her smile. However, at 10 p.m. on a Wednesday, you might think she would be less than happy about spending the rest of the evening in the band room at Gammage. She seemed to thrive on the sounds of student musicians practicing in the halls and the neverending rush of people working and socializing in the band office. O ' Neil, a 21-year-old wildlife conservation major, had been one of the drum majors of the Arizona State University SunDevil Marching Band for the past three years and also a member of Kappa Kappa Psi, the national honorary band fraternity. She knew first hand how difficult it could be for a student to find their own place at ASU. " I would advise a freshman to find something that they like and that they know they want to do and find a way to get involved with it, " she said. " There are so many places through the Student Services Building that you could just go in and they ' d tell you what to do. Sure, you ' re scared and you don ' t want to meet anybody, but once you start going, it ' ll get better. " One way that many students believed gave them their own place was having a support system of good friends. O ' Neil said that her friends were an integral part of her decision to change her major. She had been a music education major for her first two years at ASU, and had a very difficult time trying to decide if she Continued on page 3c Text by Marlene E. Naubert FINDING " They didn ' t understand how difficult it was. They THE saw in me what I wanted. I don ' t know what I want to do. SUPPORT They realized that music was imp rtant tai me and I - BRIGID O ' NEIL but it wasn ' t what I really wanted to do. " Continued from page 3b really wanted to dedicate her life to being a band director. " (The music) was me, " she said. " I equated myself with how good I was. Everyone I looked up to was a band director or a conductor. I thought that once all of that was taken away from me, what would I be? I wouldn ' t be as important or as qualified, and people wouldn ' t think much of me in the music world. I wasn ' t thinking of what I thought of me, but what other people thought. " O ' Neil said that her friends were the ones who made her realize what she wanted to do with her life, and her when she made the decision to change her major to wildlife conservation biology. " They didn ' t understand how it was, " she said. " They saw in me what I wanted. They realized that music was important to me and I loved it, but it wasn ' t what I really wanted to do. They were just like, ' Do it ' , and sometimes that irritated me, because I was ' Well, I don ' t know what I want to do ' , and I really did. " Since she has been in college, O ' Neil said she learned a very important thing about finding her own place where she would be happy. She found that was not so much a destination as it was a constant journey filled with new experiences. " We ' ll go to college, we ' ll graduate, we ' ll get a job, we ' ll do all these things and it will equal happiness at the end of our lives. We ' ll say, `Great! I ' ve led a happy life ' , and I kind of had that philosophy, " she said. " If I make this band, then I ' ll be happy. If I do well on this test or this audition, then I ' ll be happy. If I have these friends, then I ' ll be happy. That ' s definitely not the Happiness isn ' t something you have to find. " Moving into a residence hall and out of the place into something you could call " home " was even harder. Senior psychology major SueAnn O ' Brien was an example of someone who had succeeded in doing so. She came to ASU her freshman year from her hometown of Rochester, NY. When she arrived in Arizona, a state that she had never been to before, she moved into Cholla with three other girls and has lived in the same apartment-style residence hall ever since. Now, in her fourth year, she had a studio by herself, but pointed out how living with those other people in the beginning when you were new was very important. " At first you don ' t have anybody else, so roommates are good, " O ' Brien said. One year of that was enough, though, and her sophomore year she got settled into her own studio which she has had ever since. To her, this felt very m uch like home. " I can decorate how I want, blast my stereo at six o ' clock in the morning or stay up late having to worry about disturbing she said. O ' Brien said that two of the advantages to living in Cholla was that your Continued on page 4b house you grew up in was a adjustment for any freshman. able to make that Text by Jennifer DeCarvalho (Above) through her kitchen, O ' Brien enjoys the solitude of her dorm..

You ' ve already got your friends and HOME have yourself established. -SUE ANN O ' BRIEN Continued from page 3e housing fee was paid all at once and not having a car (like herself) was no problem because of the excellent She also stressed the importance of privacy and personal space, that living alone in an atmosphere such as Cholla could allow for. Although she didn ' t keep in touch with any of her roommates from freshman year, she admitted living in the residence halls had opened her up to many friendships. She probably would have missed out on much of this had she been in an apartment or house. O ' Brien said another plus to hall living was how close-knit the people around you became, as you grew accustomed to seeing them all the time. She did admit that she sometimes wished she lived off (in a bigger place). Especially now that she was almost done with school and more serious about her studies, and not particularly active in the usual " dorm activities, " constant noise and parties which could sometimes get annoying. " The older you get, the more you don ' t need so many people around who you know, " she said. " You ' ve already got your friends and have yourself established. Her concentration was now more on school and receiving the psychology degree she was so close to completing. She planned on moving closer to her roots back East and possibly attending school at Boston College. Looking ahead to her future she admitted to being slightly terrified, but was somehow at the same time. " Ever since I can remember, that ' s what I always wanted to do, " she added.

" conveient, close to school and it works around my schedule. " Photos Craig Valenzuela a person approached the final months of school, a wide range of sentiment had potential to arise. Fear, anxiety, zeal, confusion (or perhaps a combination of these) were probably familiar to those who had been there. For those who had yet to reach this phase, graduation was probably anticipated for reasons of the obvious like an end to all exams. Sometimes the carefree aspects of college life could be taken for granted, but for those who were holding down a job to help put them through school, headed for a specific career in which they were already receiving much hands on experience and basically being a responsible adult the question was: How much more real could it get? No matter what the field of study or intended occupation, it seemed an optimistic attitude was important to maintain. Interactive Computer Graphics major Art Eklund had that part mastered. Beginning his ASU career as an engineering major, he was now glad for having made the switch. " My advisers (in computer graphics) were really supportive, " he explained. Personal guidance and attention were completely unfa miliar to many in a school of over 40,000. He felt lucky to have had that. With their assistance he was able to take a miscellany of courses, still filling his requirements and thus emerging a well rounded person and not a computer zombie. He mentioned classes like advertising and marketing which were not only Continued on page 5a Text by Jennifer DeCarvalho GAINING " I was intimidated once I was here, but I was more excited than THE anything. The best things were being independent, fending for. EXPERIENCE myself and friends, good ones. -ART EKLUND Continued from page 4e interesting, but related to his major as well. Opting to go directly into the job market and hold off on graduate school for the time being, Eklund maintained a realistic perspective on what his chances would be. He had accepted the fact that being a novice in the work force meant probably starting at the bottom of the so-called corporate ladder. Being the self-proclaimed " non-tie person " that he was, some minor adjustments in lifestyle would probably have to be made once he graduated from school . He pointed out the fact that the field of computer graphics was in high demand despite the current recession. He also added that the position was actually one of the top ten jobs in the country. " Our age group is on the brink of technology, " he said. Ecklund added that this helped to make him feel more confident about his chances of success. Eklund explained his education at Arizona State as being " 90 percent hands on experience. " The fact that he had less bookwork and more of this experience would probably help to make the transition from college into the ' real world ' less drastic. " I don ' t read from books and then apply it to something else, " he said. " I ' m actually on the computer most of the time. " Ecklund described his field as the aspect of the " chain " that dealt with the clients. He added that he saw it as the crucial link between " the actual theories of engineering and the public. " He said the two major differences between his life now and that of a businessman would be the fact that he would have more responsibility and more money. Ecklund said that he looked forward to his life as a businessman as a challenge and not as something that would be completely overwhelming. " I want to see exactly what I can do, " Eklund added.

Whitfield, a second year student said she chose this organization because they provided mentors for their members and she wanted to meet more people with the same ethnic For Whitfield, the organization accomplished its purpose because it helped her academically, socially and personally. " The mentors that are provided through this organization are excellent, " Whitfield said. " It ' s a good way to network with other black on campus. " Whitfield, who was an industrial design major, did not have the advantage of living on campus like she during her first year of school year and that STARS gave her the opportunity to become more involved with campus life. She added that living off campus really did create a with meeting people. This was the main reason why she said she joined an organization.

Whitfield spoke of how STARS affected her life a great deal and how it has helped her to open up a little more with people and discuss some of the problems she had encountered, whether personal or concerning academics. " The feeling of knowing that there is always someone there to listen to the problems that we students face whether its personal or academics creates a wonderful feeling inside, " she said. Whitfield said the organization affected her greatly as a student and provided study groups which made it easier to get help with courses. " I think its a lot more personal because its more one on one, " she added. Whitfield said that everyone should join an organization so they can feel like they ' re a part of the university. " Not being involved in a campus makes you lose focus because you just go to class and there is no feeling of doing anything worthwhile, " she said. Whitfield said she felt her does serve a legitimate purpose to its members and to Arizona State, since there has been a low percentage of black students on campus. " STARS is an organization where blacks can come together and not feel lost, " Whitfield said. " This also provides our own culture of role models that have made it through the ASU system. " Whitfield said joining STARS helped her fit in at school. The mentor program and the social were just a few things STARS members encountered to help them feel more at home. " Having an opportunity to be in- volved takes away the fear of being intimidated by the size of ASU, " Whitfield said. " Being in STARS gives me the support to conquer any obstacles that I may encounter.

" (Left) over the answer key, Nelson, a grade geography teacher, is working towards his teaching . Photos by Valenzuela without our personal relationships, many of us would never be able to make it through college. Friends and family form the support system that helps ease the pressures of university life and building these were just as much a part of school as tests and homework. Hans Nelson, a 28-year-old history major, had learned the lessons that college had to teach him, both in the classroom and out. It was the Minder- Binders Restaurant which provided a unique setting for Nelson to allow entrance into the hidden corners of his mind and soul. A determined individual, Nelson rated his objectives high on his list of priorities. " When you make a commitment to do something long term, you get stability, " Nelson said. " It ' s an investment, if you invest in something risky, your walking on egg shells, it ' s easy to lose. " Nelson said he had learned to be very select with his friendships. After having exposure to what he called " plastic " individuals, he made it a point to display caution in his choice of confidants. " Learn to enjoy the company of real friends, " he said. " Remember your family, you can ' t get through college without their support. We need that backbone. " Without the psychological and support ofhis parents, Nelson said that he never would have made it through his college years. He added that without their guidance, he may have.

" HANS NELSON Continued from page 5f given in to many of the peer pressures that he encountered along the way. Nelson said he believed his friends were also instrumental in supplying the encouragement necessary to reach his personal goals. " Keep in mind it ' s easy to take the gift of real friendship for granted, " he said. " You have four or five years (in college) to meet people, expose yourself and make an effort to hold on to the good ones. They are far and few between. " Nelson, who was born in Sweden, tried to maintain a strong commitment towards preserving his European morals and values. He said he realized that his young adult life he had his share of learning experiences, some good some bad. But, he still approached life with a unique sense of optimism. For Nelson, life was not just a four-letter word, but a precious gift that was to be passed on and enjoyed by others. " There were lots of short term he said. " The key is to meet you really like, find something you know is going to work and stay faithful. It could take along time to find someone your compatible with. " Motivated by his love for children, upon completion of his post-graduate studies Nelson said he hoped to teach history at the junior high school level. Nelson added that his girlfriend, Joelyn Murphy, had been instrumental in providing a constant source of " She ' s my best buddy , I don ' t have to hide anything from her, cater to her, I don ' t have to pretend or be artificial, " he said. " It is so much easier to be the person someone wants you to be. There is much more to simply being Nelson said when he loses sight of his priorities, Murphy served as a reminder to re-define his " She keeps me in line, " he added. For the thousands of athletes in college, how they played the game what was most important to them. Was it building a strong team or enhancing personal performance? And, did it mean school for a more immediate reward? Dereck Moore, 58, went out before every football game with the intention to win. Moore, a senior from Dayton, Ohio, had one year of eligibility remaining. " Sports at ASU are crucial since the school is so large, " he said. " Sports are also important for minorities who otherwise would not have had a chance to go to school. " Before he went out on the field in front of thousands of fans, he explained that hesaid a prayer. " I need that extra spiritual strength to help me in the game, " Moore said. He said college life was affected by football since it enhanced friendships and leadership roles. " Being on the football team has taught me a great deal about team unity, " he said. He added that he didn ' t only go out to win, but also to reach personal success. " I have a goal in mind when I go out into the stadium, " he said. " If I don ' t reach my goal right away, I keep trying.

For people who were outside of that involvement it was easy to misunderstand what it was all about. Students often found that being a part of the greek system didn ' t only mean wearing the letters, but it also meant believing in what they stood for. Paula Lo Monaco, an English major and member of Chi Omega sorority, was one of the few students who didn ' t mind " shedding some light on the subject " of greek life . Lo Monaco said she felt that being a part of the greek system changed her entire college life. She said that it had been exciting and more worthwhile than if she had not been involved in the greek system. How did it make it more worthwhile? For Lo Monaco, it was just by making college seem more like a place where she belonged. She added that being greek helped socially and with her education, especially with meeting people who could assist her with her studies. " I heard more about things such as tutors, intramurals and social gatherings, " she said. " The greek system helps point things out socially, scholastically and athletically. " She added that greek life helped make her college life better because there were a lot of academic to keep her grades up. " Scholarships are always being rewarded for good grades, " she said.

" PAULA LOMANACO Continued from page 7d Lo Monaco, like many Greeks, was not as active in her sorority now as when she was a pledge. But, she said that the commitment was well worth it in the end. " When individuals go through pledging, they have more obligations because they are earning the right to be active, " she said. " Once you gain active status, it ' s a breeze. " She added that Greek life helped her to make friends that were long-lasting. Most of her closest friends were in her sorority and she believed that she would keep in touch with these women after college was over. " I believe that being in a sorority will continue even after I graduate from college, " Lo Monaco added. She stressed that the most important thing she received out of the Greek system was a sense of pride for ASU. She said it helped her learn so much about the university that she would not have learned on her own. " I gained a sense of confidence because I actually belonged to a group that I was proud to represent, " she added. Lo Monaco said she selected Chi Omega over the other sororities because she felt the most comfortable with that group. " It stood out, it had a unique variety of different girls which made me feel comfortable, " Lo Monaco said. She added that one of the most important parts of the Greek system was Greek Week, which pulled all the Greeks together to raise money for the charity of their choice. " There is a great since of accomplishment and a real since of pride for the Greek system for raising various money for charities, " Lo Monaco said. She added that the one thing that she liked least about being Greek was the way non-Greeks viewed the system and the way actives tended to stereotype. " Probably the thing that I like the least is the way that stereotypes are tacked on by non- greeks and also the ones that are present within the system itself, " Lo Monaco said.

However, he said the task was not an easy one. " I was overwhelmed with the quality of the candidates and found it difficult to choose from the many deserving applicants, " he said. Beehler said he returned to ASU for Homecoming every year and liked to see friends from the Valley and out of state who he hadn ' t kept in touch with. " We ' re all the same people we were, " he said. " I don ' t notice any changes as we get older. " STUDENT LIFE HOMECOMING Scott Burgus by Julie Reuvers HOMECOMING COMMITTEE, IN CONJUNCTION with the Alumni Association Board of Directors, pulled off a successful " Deviltime " with 1991. " Homecoming 1991 was phenomenal, " said Raquel Gutierrez, Assistant Executive Director of Alumni Relations. " In fact, I think it may have been the best this university has ever seen. " Gutierrez attributed the success to the fact that ASU drew large numbers of alumni back for Homecoming, and alumni had " taken in helping to develop and plan for the events. Every homecoming committee consisted of chairperson and one from the Alumni Association board, as well as other committee members. However, alumni who didn ' t become involved in the actual planning process were simply drawn back for other reasons. " Being called back to a group you belonged to, such as the Devil ' s Advocates visit, " Royalty Director Stephanie Phillips said. keeping Homecoming alive. " There ' s a serious lacking to keep traditions, as the universities do o ut east, " she said. One attempt at keeping up the traditions occurred on A- Mountain. The Lantern Walk, which originated in 1885 but was forgotten until its rebirth a few years ago, drew over 500 students, faculty and alumni. Alumni Chairperson for the 1992 festivities, Jeff Patrick, named the Homecoming Parade as another big success, with over 5,000 people attending. " I think the opportunity to see people you haven ' t seen in awhile is what draws so many alumni back, " he said. Gutierrez said she felt that progress had been made toward making Homecoming an event steeped in tradition. " These last few years have just been building blocks, " Gutierrez said, " but this year we actually added another building. " larry marmie angie prather mike blaker Hayden Houser ti CITY COUNCIL GETS Mailena Martinez ISSUE OF AFTERHOURS WAS A DISTURBING ONE. Tempe residents, police officers, club owners and Tempe City Council members found it difficult to agree on a solution to the matter. The problem had many sides and deeply affected all parties involved. While council members and police officers were concerned with safety, club owners and minors were worried about losing the right to go out after 1 a.m. As of November 1991, After the Gold Rush, Club Rio and Club Encounters were the only three clubs granted an afterhours permit. of License Services, Phyllis Simko, said she felt " it isn ' t really difficult " to get a permit. " We have only received four applications, since Club UM withdrew theirs, " Simko said. " Three establishments have replied, and they have all received permits. There have been no denials. " Simko made it clear that photo these permits were granted under certain conditions. Club owners had to go Houser through a complete applica- tion process in order to get one. Some of the things owners had to submit to the council were a list of afterhours activities, a floor plan of the entire club, a legal description of the premises, a list of people within a 150-foot radius and fingerprints of all applicants. The most controversial condition was that no one under 21 was allowed to go into the club for afterhours, even though no alcohol could be served after 1 a.m. Vice Mayor Carol Smith said she didn ' t think people of drinking age should be allowed in the same establishment with minors. " When the two groups mix together, that ' s when the trouble starts, " Smith said. " They ' re supposed to be separated.

" You ' ve got a lot of bars to choose from in the same area. NIGHTLIFE LIFE Marlena Martinez Continued ffom page 12 Smith also said that all council members were concerned with " what ' s been happening " at night in Tempe. " I think that when we look at the track record of afterhours clubs, it ' s not good, " Smith said. " We ' ve had a lot of trouble and violent incidences. " Simko said that it was not only one instance that caused the council to establish the ordinance. " We looked at the overall picture of Tempe, " Simko said. " We needed more development and control over these establishments. " Mark Simonek, a manager at Club Rio, said the ordinance had virtually no affect on the club. " We never had afterhours for those 18 and above, " Simonek said. " We have them to make people more conscious before driving home. " When asked if he thought underage persons should be allowed to attend afterhours, Simonek said, " that ' s up to the city Tempe. " He also said he by thought that if bars on afterhours profits, they should find another means user of business. Still, the debate raged on. Other club owners held that afterhours not only gave patrons extra time to sober up, but it gave minors something to do other than roaming up and down Mill Avenue. Alex Michelson, a liberal arts major, said she felt that instead of having solved the problem, the ordinance actually made it worse. " People are always going to find something to do, whether it ' s allowed or not, " Michelson said. " I think it causes more trouble when a lot of people are wandering around aimlessly. They ' re more likely to do something illegal anyway, like cruising or trespassing. " Michelson also said that because minors weren ' t legally allowed to go into bars, they often went outside the law with fake I.D.s. " So many people have fake I.D. ' s because they ' re easy to get, " she said. " People want to go to afterhours basically to socialize and dance. But when they have fake I.D. ' s, they drink, too. " The Tempe City Council undoubtedly took all of these things into consideration when they established the ordinance. " All I can say is that we think very hard before granting any afterhours permits, " Smith said. sTUDENT LIFE NIGHTLIFE By MARLENE E. NAUbERT When you think of fame, do images of Hollywood premieres, expensive dinners at trendy restau- rants and signing autographs pop into your head? For August Red ' s Mike Gatt, fame was much more than this. " Fame gets you a good table, but it ' s also an instant soapbox, " he said.

What you may not have known, however, was that after class was over, they played guitar with their band, August Red, at many of the Valley ' s hottest nightspots. Although this may have seemed glamourous, both tried to maintain a decent grade point average while pursuing a career in music. " In our last semester, we were flying to L.A. two times a week, we were playing in Tucson and Flagstaff regularly and we played in town maybe three nights a week, " Spector said. " The other four days, I was the most serious student in the world. " Gatt said that he used his energy from performances to study after playing in a club.

" I would definitely recommend trying to get to know your professors, " he said. " Not only does it help you in your classes, but you learn more. I still have friendships with my old professors. " Gatt, who received his degree in communication in 1991, attributed his success to time management and setting priorities. " Effective time management will get you out of college in four years, " he said. " Not many people have less than three or four priorities, where for us, we had two. " Spector expressed his view that although he got a lot out of his college experience, most of his education was obtained onstage. " Education really refines your senses where you ' re able to appreciate things on an intellectual or abstract level, " he said. " But music ' s really been my education, because we ' ve gotten to see the extremes. " STUDENT LIFE LOCAL BANDS 17 Jill A. Harnisch By JoEy Fox To many students, heritage was important whether it was shown by a football game or just going to the Farce Side Comedy Hour on Fridays at the MU. Peter Ranger, a freshman and Student Alumni Association member, said that although he joined the SAA for the benefits, he later saw the importance of preserving tradition. " Members of the are able to keep the traditions alive by the foozeball contest or just painting the " A " on top of the Mountain, " he said. " In a school so large, tradition is needed to bond students. " Ranger said that he chose ASU because he felt a great er sense of community here than at the other Arizona universities. " Some of the happiest times shared in college are those which exemplify some type of he added. Scott Burgus Craig Valenzuela Chris Simmons don dotts by Joey Fox OOTBALL GAMES, THE PAINTING OF THE " A " ON Tempe Butte, and the annual oozeball may all have been viewed by students and non-students alike as a part of tradition at ASU. However, according to some students,the demolition of old buildings on campus and the growing population has made the task of pre- serving tradition difficult. Don Dotts, executive director of the Alumni Association, said that since the ' 60s, when many of the old traditions died, it had been difficult for new ones to survive. " Traditions don ' t just start up, they evolve, " Dotts said. " With less than 5,000 students on campus out of the 43,000 registered, the main traditions still seem to focus on events that everyone can take part in, such as athletic events. Dotts added that. recent traditions such as publications which have begun in the last five years, have served in preserving tradition. Sophomore Nick Gerbis agreed with Dotts concerning the difficulty of preserving tradition. " For a school so large, it needs a tradition to bond the students, whether it joins only a certain group of people or not, " he said. However, Jennifer Montoya, a freshman and commuter said that the tradition-oriented activities were aimed at those who lived on campus. " With the population of the school, the number of commuters, and the diversity of the students, a lot of tradition has been lost, " Montoya said. " With the demolition of the old buildings, not only is the tradition dying at ASU but the heritage as well. " Freshman Shelley Detwiller said tradition was not especially important to her. " The diversity of culture and age, as well as the population at Arizona State, causes students not to dwell or think about tradition, " she said. " Whether or not the campus looks the same in twenty years is unimportant to the average student who just takes classes and then commutes home L I Nariman Firouzye by E.Naubert SEEMED AS IF NO DEPARTMENT ESCAPED THE WRATH of the budget cuts that hit ASU last year. Perhaps nowhere was this more evident than in the fine arts department. ASU Public Events suffered a loss of 14 last year when the axe fell. " Not only did we lose friends and people that we worked with, our program was carried out with less experience and manpower, " Associate Executive Director Charles Bethea said. " We were the first department on campus that had to take that bite. It may have to happen again before this recession is over with. " ASU ' s fine arts were usually centered in three locations: Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium, the Sundome and Kerr Cultural Center. Each venue had an entire season booked, and with the budget cuts, the department had to be very discriminating when it came to choosing a program. " We may have done an event traditionally for the cultural enlightenment the community, but we may have to look at event and say, ' Well, that doesn ' t sell well " , Bethea said. " In a year like this, we may do one orchestra instead of five. " Bethea pointed out that ASU Public Events had to examine their entire program. " What we ' ve had to do is review our operating procedures and we ' re in the process of booking next season, " he said. " We ' re having to be a lot more conservative. We ' ve got to be fairly confident that we ' ll at least break even. In better times, we would program for the community. We have to look harder at things because there ' s less money to work with. " Stephen Potter, a programming coordinator, said that programs had to balance each other. In many cases, a strong ticket seller could help make up for one that drew a smaller crowd. " You know that there are events that you will have to take a loss on, " Potter said. " Arizona is not a big supporter of the ballet, but something like the Red Hot Chili Peppers will help balance it out. Continued on page 22 debbie boone Continued page 20 You need to balance it so you have your fine arts and your more popular events. " The three main venues operated on separate budgets, with Gammage and the Sundome receiving subsidies from state funds. ASU also paid the venues ' utilities. Bethea said that, sometimes, one venue helped another if there was a shortfall in revenue. " We have been able to cross-subsidize when we needed to and that has helped us, " he said. " If they have deficit trouble and we can help ,we do and vice versa. " Michele Robins, ASU Public Events ' public relations specialist, said that the budget cuts had hurt the promotion and marketing departments as well. " The budget cuts sort of cut our marketing department in half, " she said. " As a result, there are only two people in the marketing department here. It really did affect us, and now we ' re feeling the brunt of it because it ' s our busiest time of the year. " Conversely, the budget cuts were not the sole reason for ASU Public Events ' woes. Many people attributed it to the recession and a general slump in the entertainment industry. " Unless it ' s a blockbuster artist, they ' re the only ones who really sell out besides our Broadway shows, " Robins said. " I believe it ' s due to the economy. People just They ' re picking their artists. If your favorite artist was Randy Travis and you had to see him, you would find the money to go to that show. They don ' t have as much disposable income. " Debby Boone Nikk Julien Potter said that, often, artists go hot and cold very quickly and without much notice. For example, violinist Nadja may have sold more tickets right after she was featured on " 60 Minutes, " but a year later, she might not have had the same audience draw. " But when we had Baryshnikov in October, he sold the place out, " Potter said. " But, then again, that ' s Baryshnikov. " Public Events stood to lose more money when Gammage closed for seven months starting in May 1992. Renovations were planned for the venue, including air conditioning, better dressing rooms and improved access for the disabled. " The best thing that could happen to us is to have nine or 10 concerts next season to make up for that, but it doesn ' t look like it ' s going to happen, " Bethea said. By MARLENE E. NAUbERT If you were like many people who attended performances at Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium, the Sundome and Kerr Cultural Center, you were more likely to go if there was a " big name " on the program. However, big names cost money, and according to Charles Bethea, Associate Director for ASU Public Events, they had department had to watch their spending. " If we ' ve got a star that ' s a big enough name, sometimes we can ' t afford them because their fees arc just too big, " he said. " Usually, you can negotiate, but there are some times you just can ' t get there. " Bethea said that often having a celebrity ' s name on the program such as Michael Crawford in " The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber " could help make up for a show with narrower appeal, like " The Great Orchestras Series. " " If we... maintain a little bit of realism when it comes to the big names, then you ' re going to be okay, because that ' s what you want to do to make ticket sales, " Bethea said. Nariman Firoozy Scott Burgus Recycling wasn ' t just a ' 90s fad to Jerald Hunter. It was a way of life. " Unfortunately, I believe it (recycling) might just turn into being a fad, at least in America, " said the 21-year-old mechanical engineering major. " We are a consumer-oriented country. People are not concerned with waste. Hunter said that he started recycling in the spring of 1990 by turning aluminum cans in at the local grocery store. Approximately six months later when he began recycling more material newspaper, tin cans and mixed paper products), he brought it to the Gentle Str Cooperative — a recycling center. " I don ' t recycle for the money, " he said. " I recycle for the sake of not throwing away resources that are still good. " By David KEXEL Tom Hershey Craig Valenzuela Rachelle Marks Tracy Calhoun Tom Hershey Tom Hershey UNIVERSITY TAKES STEPS TOWARD A RECYCLING PROGRAM by David Kexel HE THROW-AWAY GENERATION HAD PASSED. ASU, as well as the nation, slowly realized that steps had to be taken toward recycling in order to preserve the environment. However, the campus had to put its money where its mouth was literally. Students, staff and faculty first recognized the drive toward recycling when they went to drop two quarters in the soda machine. In order to fund a recycling program, soda prices jumped to 60 cents over the summer. " There ' s a great interest in recycling on campus, but unfortunately at this time in history, it costs money to run a recycling program, " said John Riley, assistant director of Purchasing. Even though there was a lot of interest in recycling, the program became a necessity for the University. The Arizona Legislature passed a mandate requir- 50 percent of all the paper they used. However, there were no made to finance recycling projects. Funds generated from the 10-cent hike were used to finance the collecting, sorting and delivering of recyclable material. " Our first priority is to comply with state law, " said Dave Brixen, associate director of Physical Plant. Therefore, recycling paper was the first phase of the program. As of September 1991, 18 buildings were included in the program. Boxes were distributed throughout each building, and occupants of the building had to deposit paper in the containers. " We are trying to phase in the program, " Brixen said. " All buildings will be included in the project by the end of the fiscal year — June 1992. " . Despite the focus on paper recycling, aluminum recycling was not being ignored by the University community. Many departments collected their own aluminum cans and used the money they generated for special projects within the department. " Our department donates the money we collect from recycling aluminum to a needy family at Christmas, " Riley said. STUDENT LIFE RECYCLING PARKING TO do IT? MARLENE E. NAUbERT If you had trouble parking with a decal, imagine how much tougher it might have been if you had no sticker at all. " I don ' t have the time or the money to go get a decal, " Sean Mireau said. Mireau, a junior jazz performance major, chose to park in various places, such as parking lots, rather than buy a decal that would allow him to park on He said he felt it was a hassle to have to obtain a decal in order to park on Jill A. Hatnisch " Everybody hates it, " he said. " But it ' s not like they (ASU) are doing it for fun, squeezing 20 people into one spot. " Mireau said he had gotten approximately four parking tickets during his time at ASU. He added that he believed the parking situation could be improved by cutting enrollment. " The ratio of people to spaces would be less, " he said. Craig Valenzuela Craig Valenzuela Dave Giovagendi by Jennifer DeCarvalho HE BIGGEST COMPLAINT COMMUTER STUDENTS SAID they had was that the campus was too impersonal. They said it was easy to feel lost, confused and like simply one social security number out of over 40,000. Living far from campus could also intensify their feelings of isolation. Commuter Devils, a club designed to make these students feel like part of a group, was led by Diane Arnott, a senior microbiology major. She said the club was discontinued last year due to lack of interest. " Most students who do commute are working as well, " she said. " They just don ' t have the time. " Since the majority of the students who commuted came from as far away as Paradise Valley, Fountain Hills and Chandler chose to drive to campus, parking became an issue as well. The average price for a decal was approximately $85 per year, but this did not assure drivers a place to park. Arnott said that it depended on what time students arrived as to whether they got an parking space: the earlier, the better, see that not everyone Steve Begalman Dave Giovagendi same day. The concept of carpooling seemed to be not only environmentally conscious, but convenient as well. Stef Cohan, a junior communication major, had a system where she took turns driving each week with two other people. " It ' s just a lot less hassle, " she said. " This way I don ' t have to worry about my bike getting stolen and I ' ve always got someone to walk to class with. " Bicycles were another popular mode of transportation, but due to the high rate of theft on campus, many people rejected this option or chose a " cheap cruiser " rather than the tempting bike. " I know so many people who ' ve gotten them stolen, " Cohan said. " I spent $500 on my mountain hike and the last thing I want to do is come out of class and find the seat or tire gone. John Turzott melissa Difiore PEOPLE HAVE TO LEARN THE LESSONS OF LIFE the hard way. For the ASU students who went to Kuwait, those lessons were not ones that would be easily forgotten. Lieutenant Colonel Jeannine Dahl, the dean for community resources in the College of Nursing, took part in program for Operation Desert Storm that sent 300 nursing students and nurses to the Middle East for six months. Four of those students were from ASU. " I gained a greater appreciation for life in Dahl said. " I also learned a lot about delivering healthcare under adverse conditions. The students who went learned about nursing care first-hand. It is an added experience to help them in times of crisis. " Ron Keats, a sergeant in the army reserves and junior nursing student, said that he was glad that he went, but he did change because of the experience. I ' m glad I went, " Keats said. " I learned The nurses who were deployed to Saudi Arabia worked in a 200 bed hospital called Med Center West that was located 35 miles from the Kuwaiti border. Most of the 400 patients treated at the hospital patients were Iraqi prisoners of war. " After the patients started coming in, we realized that the hospital was going to be mostly for Iraqis, " Keats said. " Out of the 400 that we treated about three-fourths of them were POWs. A lot of them had to be treated for malnutrition. " But it was a privilege to treat them so that we could show them what Americans were really like. " Most of the students who were sent to the Middle East had to leave in the middle of the semester, which left their studies hanging. This was something that posed a lot of problems since all the incompleted classes had to be made up. Sergeant B.J. Wroten, who was sent to Kuwait as a part of the sixth bulk fuel Marine reserve unit, said that it was hard to leave on such short notice. continued on page 30 daniel boor Daniel Boor By MELISSA DiFioRE For Ron Keats, a second-year junior, a few tattered yellow ribbons were not the only reminders of Operation Desert Storm. " The stresses of preparing yourself for war, the stress of accepting that you might die are ones that any soldier can appreciate, " Keats said. " It ' s hard to let those stresses relax since I ' ve been back. The things that were before are not as important now. Keats said that he learned that relationships come first. He added that the war did help him focus his career. " So far I haven ' t had a focus on what area of nursing I enjoy, " he said. " But the intensity of the war helped me focus on what I want to do. " STUDENT Scott Burgus continued from page 28 " I was so frazzled, " Wroten said. " I couldn ' t believe it. We only got two weeks notice. First they would tell us that we were leaving and then they would tell us that we were staying. It was hard to continue going to school. " Wroten added that he was still on active duty for a month after he returned so he didn ' t go right back to school. " Right now I ' m still completing some of the incompletes, " he said. " After I got back (April 15) I went into summer school and made some of them up there. " Keats was also making up his incompletes during the fall semester. Wroten, a senior sociology major, added that leaving only added one semester on to his education. For the nursing students, leaving on Nov. 21, three weeks before the semester ended, was frustrating since they spent six weeks at Fort Ord in California. " A lot of the students were bitter because we felt that we could have been in school finishing our classes the whole time that we were in California, " Keats said. For most of the students who returned from the Middle East, it was hard to get back into the general routine of college life. Keats said that it was a big change after being absorbed by the military for six months. " It is difficult being back because after being controlled 100 percent by the military, I want some time to do things at my own pace, " he said. " It ' s hard to listen to professors now. " " I learned patience, " he Wroten said. " When you ' re in you hate to stand in line and you ' re always real impatient. But, over there, when anything can happen at any time, you learn to be patient. " Worten added that his experience also changed how he felt about life in general. " Little things don ' t really seem that imperitive anymore because I ' m used to worrying about just surviving, " he said. Ron Keats operation desert storm B.J. Wroten By MARLENE E.

Harnisch STUDENTS JUGGLE SCHOOL, FAMILY AND WORK by Kielii MAGINE THIS SCENE: YOUR DAY STARTS AT 5:30 A.M. and does not end until midnight. During this time, you go to school, work, try to do homework, spend time with your family and maintain your sanity. This was a typical day for Scot Lewis, a junior music education major. He was a student who was going to school, working, and raising a family. " I wish I had more time to do things, " Lewis said. " I have to really manage my time in order to get everything done. " Helen Geisler, a broadcasting major, was went to school and freelanced for ESPN. " Things got easier after I got married, " Geisler said. " My husband helped me a lot through school. " Geisler ' s husband is originally from Iceland and graduated from ASU in August 1991. She helped said that his support for her Add a family, and work to this load, and things got tough. " I don ' t let myself get discouraged about school, family and work, " Lewis said. " I just visualize myself getting the rewards I am working so hard for. " Some students no longer just went to school. The phrase " traditional student " was being replaced by a new generation that worked, had families and a social life, as well as classes to attend. " I think freshman and sophomores are traditional students, " Geisler said. Setting goals and achieving them was a high priority for those juggling school, family and work. Just conquering everyday obstacles was an accomplishment in itself, much less considering planning for the future. " After graduation I plan to be a teacher, " Lewis said. " I want my family to live in a nice house that we can call home With hectic schedules, relaxation time was something that was valued. " My husband and I love to go to jazz clubs and just hang out with our friends, " Geisler said. " Relaxation time is a time for us to just be together. " JUGGLING IT ALL 33 MARTINEZ While many people seemed to talk openly about sex, and practically everyone thought about it at one time or another, how significant was it really in terms of a relationship? The answers were as varied as the couples themselves. Cheryl Fortier said she believed that sex was not the most element of her with Bob McAllister. " You need to have as a strong base to prevail over else, " she said. " If sex comes first, you are more physically rather than attached to the person. " Though McAllister admitted that sex could be influential in determining the level of that a relationship had, he essentially agreed with Fortier. " It ' s not even close to the most important thing, " he said. Jill A. Harnisch by Martinez HE WORD " RELATIONSHIPS " MAY HAVE SEEMED TO be used rarely these days. This may have been due to the growing belief that dating had more casual. The few couples who did stay together, however, seemed to have a lot in common. Andy Gattorna, a student at NAU, and Kate Keegan, an ASU student, had been together for eighteen months. Keegan attributed their relationship to understanding, and trust. " He ' s my best friend, " she said. " We trust each other. That ' s a big thing. " Both Keegan and Gattorna expressed similar views about the importance of acceptance, communication and honesty in a relationship. " People just aren ' t patient, " Keegan said. " They don ' t bother making friendship first. They try loving each other before they like each other. " Cheryl Fortier and Bob McAllister said that their was also a success. Kate Keegan Fortier and McAllister, both music Henri Cohen Andy Gattorna Keegan education majors, had been involved for nine months. Their reasons for staying together ranged from trust to simply knowing when they got on each other ' s nerves. " We ' re tolerant of each other, " Fortier said. " We are also very easygoing. Whatever happens, happens. " McAllister had a strong opinion concerning why couples didn ' t seem to stay together for a long time anymore. " People just don ' t talk very much, " he said. " I don ' t think people want to stay together anymore. They just want to have fun. " Both couples also agreed on some of the problems of dating. " I think people are more open sexually nowadays, " Keegan said. " When you start a relationship on that, you don ' t get a chance to see how the person really is. " Many singles might have believed that the energy it took to maintain a relationship just wasn ' t worth it. These four individuals said they have learned otherwise. " When I wake up in the morning, I have something to make me smile, " Keegan said. SLUMP IN INDUSTRY BRINGS FEWER CONCERTS It ' s probably been a while, and you probably used to attend many more than you do now. This could have been attributed to several things. First of all, the economic recession left people with less " disposable " income, and second, there was a general slump in the music and touring industries, which resulted in fewer being brought to the Valley. Perhaps you noticed that very few concerts came to the University Activity Center last year. This was largely attributable to the growing number of venues equipped to handle concerts in the Phoenix Metropolitan area, including the Desert Sky Pavilion, that were in direct competition with the UAC. " We have probably lost, since last summer, four or five potential events that would have come to the UAC that, instead, went to Desert Sky Pavillion, " Associate Executive Director of ASU Public Events Charles Bethea said. " That impacts our budget. That loss of revenue does result for us in the need to downsize our budget. " The Desert Sky Pavilion, located in West by Phoenix, was the Valley ' s newest outdoor venue, keeping dates open for concerts 365 days a year. Valley promoter Danny Zelisko of Evening Star pointed out Desert Sky ' s strategy. " Desert Sky has managed to put together ways of doing business with outside promoters like myself, where the bottom line is " it ' s either fight them or join them ' , " he said. " People seem to really enjoy the atmosphere. It ' s a beautiful facility. That gives them an advantage. A lot of groups enjoy playing outdoors. The UAC only has room for 7,500, 8,500 people on the front and sides of the stage. The bigger groups want to play to more people than that. " Bethea added that Desert Sky Pavilion was not the only competition to the UAC. " We ' ve only done two concerts this year, " Bethea said. " We have another challenge facing us in June when the America West arena opens. They ' re planning on having a heavy calendar beyond basketball and arena football. The Coliseum is another major Continued on page 38 STUDENT LIFE CONCERT 37 Continued from page 36 on competitor of ours. When the (Phoenix) Suns move to the new arena, the Coliseum will become a full rental facility, so times ahead don ' t look real promising. " Bethea added that the Mesa Amphith eater, Compton Terrace and the Celebrity Theater also played roles in impacting the university ' s ability to bring concerts to the campus. Programming Coordinator for Public Events Stephen Potter said that since ASU was a state institution, concerts were not their first priority. " I ' ve read articles saying that Chris Carter ASU is out of the concert promotion but we were never in it, " he said. " We ' re not to promote rock concerts. " One problem that ASU Public Events faced was having to share the UAC with the athletic department and give them priority concerning event dates. " We sometimes have a problem with availability, " Bethea said. " We share this building with the athletic department for basketball, wrestling and gymnastics. Sometimes we ' ll have a date that will just drop in perfectly and it will be the day of a game. So it ' s a compromise thing. We have to work very closely with those guys. It ' s not like we have a hall with open dates 365 days out of the year. " Michele Robins, ASU Public Events ' public relations specialist, agreed with Bethea, pointing out that the Desert Sky Pavilion, besides being available year-round, also had other sources of income. " We can only have so many dates open for promoters, " she said. " We cannot take as much of a risk because we are a university. Plus, the UAC doesn ' t get to keep their concessions, because it goes to Marriott. Desert Sky Pavilion keeps all revenues and sells alcohol to offset artists ' fees. " Bethea said that 60 percent of concert revenue went to ASASU, while 40 percent stayed with ASU Public Events. " We could make up to $8-10,000 if it ' s a really successful event, " he said. " Contrary to popular opinion, you don ' t get rich doing this. By the time the pie gets split as far down as it gets split, there ' s not a lot of money left. But at the stadium it ' s different. Bands will only come to the stadium if they ' re successful enough to be supported there. " Another reason for the fewer number of concerts was a general slump in the industry. It seemed as if no part of the " music business " was left unscathed. Tami G., promotion director for 98 KUPD KUKQ, said they presented less concerts.

NAUbERT When it came to the music industry, money talked when an artist ' s management went through the process of selecting a venue. With the increasing number of available venues for concerts, a state institution like ASU could not spend that kind of money to bring the big artists to campus. Stephen Potter, a programming coordinator for ASU Events, said that the department ' s main purpose was to culturally enrich the student body and not promote pop rock concerts. With the opening of the Desert Sky Pavilion, ASU ' s venues were affected as well. " Billy Joel always used to play the Activity Center, " Potter said. " But last time, he played the Desert Sky because they paid him an astronomical amount of money. We ' re a state We can ' t spend taxpayers ' money for that. Desert Sky is a private entity that can spend that kind of money. " Scott Burgos club rio mike edwards jesus jones eric scudder Continued from page 38 " Revenue ' s down because there ' s less concerts, of course, " she said. " But the free tickets we give away become more valuable because people have less expendable dollars. " She added that promotion departments have had to try new strategies to boost their stations. " Sometimes the advertising dollars are not there, then becomes even more important, " she said. " We are able to become more and more creative . Where we were just giving tickets away before, now we might give away an autographed guitar. " Zelisko said he felt that the slump in the industry was not really caused by the economic recession, but because " outlets for feeding people new music have dried up " . " There is a cultural recession in radio and the media concerning what is allowed to get to the public, " he said. " You turn on almost any radio station and you ' ll hear about 50, 60, 70 of the at time bands that are no Michael Anthony of Van Halen aren ' t buying their records. I love the group Boston, but if I hear ' Long Time one more time, I ' m going to jump out of my What happens is all these groups break up and radio stations don ' t know how to break their records. " Michael Klein, a regional promotional manager for Mercury Records, said he felt that many radio stations tended to rely on " classic " songs. " A lot of stations play recurrents, so you can ' t book shows or sell tickets, " he said. " There are a lot of new bands we have to support with airplay and marketing. A lot of good stuff doesn ' t get heard or break, and that ' s a real shame. " He added that many record companies have been forced to cut back within the past year. " The first thing you cut back is the entertainment dollar, " Klein said. " There are so many different facets that can destroy a record company. The artist can put out a bad record or it can be marketed wrong. A lot of major labels have cut back in the past three or four months. It ' s not the disco days where big cash was made hand over fist. It ' s a more analytical business now. " Klein added that there were too many factors to blame the slump on just one. " It ' s mirroring what ' s going on with the recession, " he said. " If there ' s anything to help the industry revive itself, radio needs to support a lot of up and coming bands. Giving way to some of the people who have already made it and giving some to the small guy, too. " Tracii Guns STUDENT LIFE CONCERTS 41 by Kim Kann S POTENTIAL COLLEGE STUDENTS DECIDED TO GO TO, a four-year university, many expected to graduate in exactly four years. However, this expectation faded rapidly when these same students waited in the MU to pick up their early registration schedules, only to find that, for one reason or another, they did not receive the classes they requested. Many thought getting a college degree would take as long as getting a high school diploma. Not so. These students would have to go to ASU for another semester or possibly, another year or more. Several factors contributed to this. First, their program of study changed all timing. " Graduating in four years depends a lot on what college you are in, " sophomore accounting major Amy Schnelker said. Each college had its own connie rice the College of Public wanted their graduating students to have taken a certain amount of foreign- language courses. " The classes also become increasingly difficult, so students decide to take less credit hours, " Schnelker said. " They opt to take 13 instead of 15. " Second, students worked to meet their college expenses, which included an increasing tuition and books. Maintaining a full or a part-time job lessened the time these students were able to spend at school. In addition to working, most students wanted a social life. For some, weekends were meant for relaxing and partying. Instead, students, wanting to graduate in four years, finished their homework and studied for upcoming exams, possibly causing stress and student burnout. Thinking of school seven days a week made it harder for some students to concentrate. Many students coped with this problem by withdrawing from ill-fated classes early, accepting their poten- tial bad grade, or perhaps, they left school all together. Scott Burgus Scott Burgus By KIM KAAN Finally, Senior Chad Trayler graduated with a BS degree in Electrical Engineering. Like many students, it took Trayler five years to graduate, because he opted to take less credit hours. " I only took 14 credit hours each semester since it was impossible to take 18 hours as suggested in the catalog, " Trayler said. " There is too much homework and labs for a Engineering student to take 18 credit hours. " He advised that any Engineering students wanting to in four years should go to summer school instead of more credit hours. " I wanted a social life, and I was always studying for my classes, which took up the majority of my time, " he added. Scott Burgus 43 STUDENT LIFE GRADUATION STUDENTS JOBS Jill A.

" At the same time, I was doing work with KASR, but when I left ASU, I looked at my resume and it looked like most of my interest was in TV. " Trainor was hired as the assistant promotion director at KUPD KUKQ radio station, where she had been interning while going to school. Another alumnus, Larry Mack, who graduated with a broadcast station management degree in May 1989, interned and worked at several local radio stations independent from ASU before settling into his current position as a disc jockey at KUPD. " ASU ' s been really good, " he said. " The people I hung around with in college have gotten jobs in broadcasting one way or another. Maybe they ' re not doing exactly what they Trainor attributed the who came directly from local media. " All of my professors and advisers were really aware that the media is not learned through books, " said. " They were on their toes and brought in real-life situations. " Mack said that although having a degree applied very little to being a disc jockey, the experience he gained from attending school here gave him something he could not have obtained without going to college. " ASU gave me contacts that I ' ll probably be able to use over the rest of my career, " he said. " That ' s the one thing that college gives you above and beyond everything. " STUDENT LIFE 44 LIFE POST-GRAD Jill A. Harnisch By MARLENE E. NAUbERT Some people found that their college degrees wouldn ' t get them into a job they really wanted. In many cases, it got them as far as graduate school. Dave Madden was a graduate student in computer science who got his bachelor ' s degree in psychology. He said the first degree helped him educationally, but did not really prepare him for a career. " I felt the was for my growth, but it didn ' t help me develop any job skills, " he said. Madden said that the jobs he had held since graduation showed him that his interests lay elsewhere. " I chose a graduate degree in computer science because the field I wanted to go into is looking for computer people rather a bachelor ' s degree in psychology, " he said.

" Although many student teachers were discouraged to teach after their student teacher experience, some found that they were eager to join their own classroom after graduation. " I was constantly learning, the student teaching experience has encouraged me if anything, " said Jerry Hurbed a student teacher. Hurbed, who taught at the elementary level, said he used a conventional approach to teaching. " I ' m all for positive discipline, we must encourage the students to want to know, " Hurbed added.

" These words were posted on every PGS 100 syllabus. To pass the course, each PGS 100 student must participate in the experiments. " I think its good that we have to do these experiments, " Psychology major Stacey Wilson said. " By actually participating firsthand, we learn how psychology really works. " There were two reasons why all PGS 100 students had to participate in these experiments. The first was the educational aspect. By educating students in that manner, professors hoped that they would learn more about the study of psychology. 6 LIBERAL The second reason was the scientific aspect. " If I did not participate in the experiments, I would not have known what mechanisms were involved in psychology, " said Christy Calvin, a PGS 100 student. All PGS 100 students had to complete three credit hours of experiments. The experiments varied in length and sometimes required just men or women. " It ' s a good idea to have experiments only open to certain groups, " Wilson said. " This way the people running the experiments can get an accurate result from their experiment. " The students were also required to fill out a questionnaire during the second week of the semester. This was used to help researchers identify individual students who would be appropriate for specific research studies. " I think the psychology department should offer this questionnaire not only to psychology students but to other students as well, to get an overview of the students at Arizona State University, " Calvin said.

Story by Kim Kaan hiGHER INTELLIGENCE Ida Riggs, a sophomore English major, said that " hectic " could have described a typical day for most Honors College students, especially in her case. Riggs, a Dean ' s Merit Scholar, got up every morning at eight to prepare for her first class. After class, she had a few hours to study or sometimes, she passed her time by participating in some campus organizations. These included START and Devil ' s Advocates. As an Honors College student, Rig gs said she tried to pay close attention to her studies. However, she also managed to work 16 hours a week at the Honors College and to work as a tutor at the English Writing Center. Her day did not end with these activities. In the evenings, Riggs also attended some honors night classes. " I really enjoy my honors courses because they tend to be more discussion and involvement-oriented, whereas my other classes are based heavily on memorization, " she added. " Honors classes let students express their opinions more often because they are formatted like seminars. " Riggs said she felt there was a considerable difference the honors and regular classes. " Many people tend to think the difference is in the workload, but I believe honors classes get the same amount of work, " she said. Like many of the other Honors College students, Riggs lived in McClintock Hall. McClintock was a residence hall located directly on campus and that was designated as the scholar ' s residence. Riggs added that the hall ha d its advantages as well as its disadvantages. " Like most dorms, McClintock has little space to live in, but it has its good points like being in the middle of campus close to the professors and classrooms, " she said. the experience I gained in the labs was creative and exhilarating, which I truly enjoyed as a summer job. " Research work in the lab provided valuable experience for the stu- dents. Kerri Kavanagh finishes one of her projects in the nuclear energy program. Photo by Scott Burgus Story by Melanie Newsome ASU ' s nuclear program had been in existence for about fifteen years, headed by Dr. John McKlveen, who created the program around his ideal of nuclear reactor design. The nuclear program involved twenty-five to thirty students, making a more conducive learning environment for the students. The program had five or six nuclear classes, with two or three dealing with radiation measurements and health physics. The rest of the classes were more traditional courses pertaining to the subject of nuclear engineering. Jerald Hunter, a student in the program, said he felt the small classes had benefits. " Because of the small classes, everybody is one big family, " he said. Dr. McKlveen created the program where scholarships were offered to students. These scholarships included travel opportunities and allowed the students to gain valuable experience. Internships were offered in countries such as Austria, Switzerland, Australia and Japan in order to help students get hands-on experience in the nuclear field. Hunter said that he had the opportunity to go to Europe and gain experience by working in the labs on various projects. " The experience I gained in the labs was creative and exhilarating, which I truly enjoyed as a summer job, " Hunter said. Many of the labs for the nuclear engineering program did not take place in the classroom for three hours, but lasted for a whole weekend instead. The students and instructors would take field trips to different places throughout the state such as the Grand Canyon and Carsiera Anches ' uranium mines to take measurements. " These field trips made the working relationship between the student and the instructor more comfortable with each other, " Hunter added. nuclear program internships, started by the late Dr John McKlveen, were offered in various other countries.

Photo by Scott Burgus Story by Renee Caruss PROJECT OF LEARNING HOW GET? Prestige, money and power were all familiar words for students in the College of Business. In order to achieve this goal students had to complete Marketing 302 which was taught by Professor James Spiers. It consisted of a semester-long project that counted for a significant percentage of the students ' grades. Spiers said the best way to complete this project was compilation. " Apply all the principles that are learned throughout the whole year, " he said. " I always emphasize to my students that it is not the size of the project that is impor- tant, but the quality. " The first steps in this project are to choose from a list of products that the group could work on. " There are 10 products to choose from, " he said. " There also is no overlapping of any products so that each group has something different to work with. " After choosing the product, they made a trip to the library to collect information and then wrote to companies and visited stores. " This gives the students hands on experience, " Spiers said. " If they make mistakes, they will learn from them and they won ' t do it again when they really have to face the business world. " When working with a group of people, conflicts could arise, Spiers said. To solve them, he had peers evaluate each other ' s work. After conflicts were overcome, the complete project was presented to the whole class and opened to comments and questions. " This makes it necessary that they know exactly what they are talking about, " Spiers said. showing an example of a possible commercial to market wine coolers, Senior Jim Kranz talks about how his strategy would be beneficial.

The first day of school approaches and you are eager to pick up your loan and grant you learn there has been a problem with your file. Sound familiar? For Sykes, a 23-year-old marketing major, this was more than familiar; it was a hassle. " I had been receiving financial aid since 1988, both loans and grants, the problem with my loan was the school sent it to the lender where they should have sent it to United State Aid Fund, " she said. " I received it and returned it to the lender. Later, the lender claimed they did not know where it was. " Sykes also said that her grant was not available for her to pick up on the first day of school, even though all the paper work was filed in February of ' 91. " I did not receive my Pell Grant until two weeks ago, " Sykes said. Sykes, who depended on the allotment of her financial aid to cover personal costs as well as educational, had to resort to a short- term loan. " I ' m totally dependent on the money, " she said. " My classes were put on hold, because I had no money pay for them. " Griffin, a 23-year-old marketing major, did not apply for financial aid and instead applied for a PLUS loan. " When the financial aid office told me to bring in my pap ers, they told me that I needed to bring in other forms as well, " said Griffin. " This went on every time I brought in some more paper. Then they (the financial aid office) told me that I could not get the loan unless I applied for financial aid first. " Sykes said she agreed with Griffin concerning the hassles associated with loans and how a student qualified for one. " No one should have to pay fo r school regardless of how much your parents make, " she said. " It ' s not your parents who are going to school. " Pell Grants, and dissappearing loans are something Debra Sykes, a marketing major, and Fred Griffin are used to. Lack of and an abundance of paperwork make financial aid a nightmare.

Graduate education study in one area, giving students the opportunity to become specialists in their field of interest. " It ' s so different from you aren ' t learning from books anymore, " said Kathy Evans, who was working is what most students avoid the most and miss the least during college. Tamara Fernandez, a master ' s showed the dedication it took to in the graduate program. on her doctorate in history. " You are actually researching in the field and contributing to your profession. " Many graduate students had already experienced the professional world and looked to graduate school as a second chance to further or change their careers. " I wasn ' t happy about teaching high school, " said Joyce Neely, an MBA student and president of Graduate Women of Business, who came back to school after two years. Students said a graduate degree could advance careers and increase earning power. not all students were in it for career advancement. Some students chose to go to graduate school for personal gain or to find a career they enjoyed. " I eventually want to teach, but the main reason I went into it was to learn more, and I ' ve grown from those experiences, " Evans said. Most master ' s degree were two years long and although the course load was less than that of an undergraduate, the work that students had outside of class was what most of their time. The students said that it took dedication to get a professional degree because the programs were so tough. " If you get less than a B ' , you ' re out, " Neely said. there is not that big of a change, my classes are the same size. One of the differences of the campus is that there are a lot more resources on a larger scale at the university. " Finding your way at ASU can sometimes pose a problem. Sophomore Tina Fraser pauses to check for her next class. Photo by Scott Burgus Story by Annalisa Hernandez South Mountain, Scottsdale and Mesa were just a few of the community colleges that several students who currently attend ASU transferred from. Some of the reasons students said they transferred to a university were to pursue higher degrees or to become more involved with the social aspect of a university. Tegra Cooper Tegra Cooper, a biochemistry major, transferred from Mesa Community College. She said she hoped transferring would help her go further in her major. Brett Cameron, a business management major, transferred after attending Scottsdale Community College for two years. " The university offers a better academic program overall, " Cameron said. He also said that he liked ASU better because of the social opportunities. Tina Fraser attended SCC for one year, then transferred as a sophomore. She said that at SCC, she did not attend several of her classes, and since classes cost more at the university she was determined to go. Cooper said that she was not experiencing any major changes. " There is not that big of a change, my classes are the same size, " she said. " One of the differences of the campus is that there are a lot more resources on a larger scale at the university. " Cooper added at community colleges students were treated as people and not simply as numbers. The only type of changes Cameron said he experienced was the increase in class and campus size. Cameron compared a day at ASU to that of the community college. " Since the campus is bigger, the classes are farther apart but finding parking is a lot easier, " he said. " It ' s like a little city, everything you need is near campus.

" Knowing I would have to pay for my college education myself, I worked through high school, (and) I worked full-time this summer so I could pay for it, " said Jill Tall, a 17-year-old biology major from the Valley area. In 1986, the Arizona Board of Regents declared that out- of-state and international students would soon have to pay for 100 percent of the cost of their education. This cost was estimated to be $7,760, a price which non-resident students were fast-approaching by 1991. For Mona Allen, a junior in finance, the jump from paying $125 per semester at Mohave Community College to ASU rates was worth it. " I think if you ' re willing to go to school and work at it, you get your money ' s worth, " Allen said. But tuition was not the only strain that college put upon student wallets. Textbooks and other supplies easily reached $200 each semester. " " (Book buying) was a real shock, " Tall said. " Even my used books were expensive. " Over the past years, ASASU leaders vowed to freeze tuition increases only to lose out to the Arizona Board of Regents, the state Legislature, and a lagging national economy that kept federal funding from bolstering educational programs. " Middle-class Americans are finding a lot of obstacles, " Tall said. " Financial aid is a problem. We ' re not poor enough.

But if you were like most people who attended the games, you had no idea what Sudler Trophy signified. actuality, it was the Heismann Trophy of marching bands. " It represents tradition, excellence in marching band techniques and performance of music, " Dr. Robert C. " Coach " Fleming said. Fleming was the director of the marching band, celebrating his 18th year of leading the 280 member group. He said that the band was only the 10th band ever to receive the trophy, and the first in the Pac-10. Brigid O ' Neil, a senior wildlife conservation biology major and one of the band ' s three drum majors, said she had never heard of the trophy before it was bestowed upon ASU, but felt a great deal of pride after learning of its significance. " I feel glad that I ' ve been a part of it and continued over the last four years that would help us merit the trophy, " she said. Fleming said he doubted the band realized how much of an honor the trophy was for band members. " If you put it in the perspective of a Heismann Trophy winner, the next year, he ' s expected to catch more passes and score more because he was the winner of that trophy, " he said. The Sudler Trophy was presented to the band during halftime of the Homecoming game. Fleming said he expected it to be heartfelt. " It will be a very emotional time, " Fleming said. " I ' ve always enjoyed Homecoming, but this I time I ' ll have something to thank them (alumni) for. " practicing is the only way an award-winning band can keep it ' s consistency.

Photo by Scott Burgus Story by Kim Kaan You know technology was rapidly advancing when students could watch television and be in class at the same time. ASU introduced a new method of long-distance instruction called the Interactive Instructional Television allowed employees of participating companies to take university courses by television while at work. In the fall of 1991, 24 different companies, such as Intel, Motorola and Honeywell, participated , as well as the ASU West campus. Participating companies received special equipment that would show students what was happening in class by TV. Students and instructors used telephones to communicate during telecasts with faculty and students in the Tempe campus. Laurel Crull, a senior education major, participated in the IITP classes at ASU West. Crull said she did not feel she was getting the same instruction through the program as if she was actually in the class. " By having to talk to your professor by phone, it is kind of intimidating and if you have a problem, you have to go all the way to the Tempe campus to resolve it, " she said. On the other hand, Crull said IITP was beneficial because the students did not have a need to commute— the reason she decided to join the program in the first place. Irene Briant, IITP specialist, said she hoped the program would benefit the students. " The Instructional Television Program is one more way that ASU provides convenience to its students, " she said. classes by T.V., such as this political science course with Watson, were among the options provided for ASU West students. The popularity among the students was a mixed response. Photo by Scott Burgus ACADEMICS is such a fulfilling job because of the personal values involved.

College of Social Work professor Ann Maceachron said there were many characteristics one needed to possess in order to be an effective social worker. " You must be interested in people and have high values on improving the qualities of life to make you qualify as a social worker, " Maceachron said. Social work dealt with different kinds of pressures, but Maceachron said the rewards of ecoming asocial worker takes time, patience, and most of all determination. Lisa J.

" It is such a fulfilling job because of the personal values involved, " she added. " You feel after every day of work that you have done something for the community. " The main sources of pressure came from two things, Maceachron said. One of these things was the difficulties of working with large numbers of people that all have pressing problem. The other was getting al ong with cutbacks that minimize services. This was especially hard to deal with in cases that required immediate assistance. " It is important to understand a person ' s perspective and to have as much empathy as possible in order to help that person get back on their feet again, " Lynda Nassen said. Nassen was a career adviser who had past experience in social work. Macheachron said that in this world of fast pace and many people may not have stopped to look around and see if somebody needed a helping hand. She added that this is why a social worker is a valued job. " What keeps a social worker going, is that it is a challenge that should always be met because we know that at least once a day we utter the words, ' I ' m so stressed out! Maceachron said.

Architecture was a field that offered many job opportunities. Photo by Scott Burgus If someone were to get an aerial view of the campus at any given hour of the night, they would find one lone building that still had all its lights on. Despite the absence of heat or air-conditioning from 12 - 6 a.m., students of Architecture and Environmental Design constantly made use of the building ' s 24-hour availability, no matter what the time of day. The college consisted of five areas of emphasis with degrees offered in architecture, industrial design, interior design, landscape architecture and planning. The concept of " environmental design " referred to the fact that the college offered instruction relating to all parts of the environment. Students would design things ranging from something as small as a keyboard to a massive to an entire town center. Highly regarded on both an international and national level, the college had an advantage in its relative small size within a university of over 40,000. With only 1400 students, it tried to maintain a friendly and open atmosphere. According to Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, Reed Kroloff, professors and faculty " try to know students on a personal basis. " Despite its friendliness and personability, " competitive " and " demanding " were also accurate descriptions of these fields of study. After the first two years of general course work, studies became even more intense for those who ' d been promoted to `upper division ' .

Students walked around in their own worlds, foreheads wrinkled and eyes red. Headaches were more common and sleep was a thing of the past. This was not some freak epedemic that swept the univeristy, it was stress. Every student had something that caused them to stress. Stacy Longnecker said that " tests and finals contribute a lot to stress. " However, for her a really stressful event was " waking up late and finding nothing to wear-you can relate, " she said. Henry Liang had a different cause of stress. " Females stress me, " he said. " I can never figure them out. " Other causes of stress were family problems and money, or the lack of it.

" It can be kind of stressful when you take a girl out on a date and aren ' t sure if you can afford it. Then you just pray that she really likes you, and hope she ' s not offended, " said Jon Robinson. Christmas was also a stressful event. " You spend the whole year trying to make enough money to buy gifts for the people you like, and then you try to guess who will be giving you presents and make sure you get one for them too so that their not offended, " Carrie Schultz said. " Then when someone gives you something and you don ' t have anything for them, you say, ' I have something for you but I left it at home, ' and run out to find an inexpensive present. Christmas is probably one of the most stressful events in my life, " she added. Since almost every student had a job to deal with, almost every student had to face the stress that comes when trying to juggle work, school, and social life. " I have to work to pay the rent, but it ' s really hard sometimes to make time for my homework and my friends, " Julie Howard said. " Sometimes I come home from work and I ' m so tired; the last thing I want to do is study. " Liang had the same problem. " I work every day, sometimes two shifts, and I get so tired that I don ' t want to study, " he said. " This leads to a lot ofstress when finals come around and I ' m up cramming for a full week. " Students had different ways of coping with stress. Some chose to exercise, others chose to just relax. " Whenever I get too stressed out, I try to make time for myself, " Howard said. " I find a book to read or and I just relax. I find that when I take time to get myself recharged, I have more energy to tackle on page 146 Stan Pirog Scott Burgus Pedaling on a life cycle at the Student Recreation Complex Ann Wagner catches up on her reading. Many students worked out their anxieties by using the equipment at the rec. Continued from page 145 whatever it was I was stressing about. " Longnecker had a different approach. " When I ' m really stressed about something, and I usually am, I go to the gym and work out. It relieves the tension. Sometimes I read the Bible, too, " she said. Robinson had a problem relaxing when he was stressed. " It ' s hard for me to take a break when I ' m really stressed about something becuase I feel like I ' m wasting time and that makes me more stressed. It ' s easier for me to just keep going and get it finished, and then I can take time to relax. It ' s better that way becuase then I can feel like I ' ve accomplished something, " Robinson said. For some people, turning the other cheek seemed to work best for dealing with stress. " When I ' m stressed about something, I go out with my friends. I just put it off until I can deal with it later. It may not be the best way, but I haven ' t had a breakdown so far, " Liang said. There is always the question of whether it ' s possible to avoid stress all together. While most people do experience stress at some point in their lives, many have found ways to keep it under control. " When you get really stressed out, you get sick. Then you can ' t do whatever it is that you were stressing about doing. I just try to take things one step at a time, and then I don ' t get too stressed and I don ' t get sick, " Howard said. Robinson found it harder to avoid stress. " I tend to jump in to things without asking myself dies too much for me to handle, " he said. " Then I get overloaded with things to do and I can ' t do them all, or I can ' t do them as well as I ' d like to. After I ' ve committed myself to so much, there ' s really no way to back down, so I just have to stick it out and hope for a break. " Although he did tend to take upon more than he could handle, he had a solution. " If I can learn to say no to things when I know that I can ' t handle them, I ' d be all right. I ' m just such a compulsive person and I like to do everything. When I can ' t decided what I want to do the most, I do it all, " he said. In rare instances, students could hold in the stress or even forget about it. However, this was not so easy for Longnecker. " Whenever I hold it in and don ' t deal with it, I can ' t sleep, " she said. " It ' s easier for me to just face it head on and deal with it, and then I can get it out of the way and move on. " On the other hand, some people could put it out of their minds for a time and deal with it later. " I have kind of a ' tomorrow is another day ' syndrome-I don ' t worry about it now, becuase I can worry about it tomorrow when I have a chance to do something about it, " Schultz said. Stress has probably been around since the age of the caveman. Whether students exercised, took time out, or just put it off, it had to be dealt with.

For many students, there were many more things to worry about than going to school and making decent grades, working to pay for " little extras " , and trying to figure out which club to go to after they finished their homework. An increasing number of students were single parents who had to worry about paying their family ' s bills, finding affordable child care that would work with a student ' s schedule and trying to spend enough " quality time " with their children. Single parents who were lucky enough to have discovered the Re-entry program found it to be a network of support and perhaps something to help ease the struggles that faced them on a day-to-day basis. Recent statistics showed that single parents were becoming one-third of the United States population, that single parent mothers constituted 38 percent of the poverty level (due to the feminization of poverty) and that children of divorce were Heather Collins, Comm.

Aileen Evans, Political currently the largest growing population. Trying to balance a job (sometimes two), child care, time for studies and still maintain some sense of a family life could be quite difficult. Kathleen Bertone, a single mother of two and a nursing student, said that she would wake up in the morning and ask herself the simple question, " What do I have to do today? " Thinking about the many responsibilities she had all at once was simply too overwhelming. Bertone somehow managed two part-time jobs along with being a student and mother full-time. How did she juggle all this? The first thing she did was to try not to dwell on everything she had to do so much. If she tried to put it in perspective, and deal day-to-day, she found that things were much easier to deal with in the long run. " If I think about it too much, it ' s she said. " I just take each day at a time. " She didn ' t seem worried about the prospective job opportunities once she got out of school, despite the recession. She said that since she had chosen to enter the health care industry, one that she felt would always be in demand, she would be at no loss for a job after graduation. " Nurses are always going to be needed, so I can work anywhere, " she said with confidence. " I should have no getting a job. " Being in school, holding down a job and running a household took its toll on the children involved. Relationships with parents tended to be strained, as 24 hours in the day weren ' t usually enough to get through all that needed to be done. Bertone said she often brought her children to school with her. They became regulars in on page 150 Asking his mother a question about her homework, Phillip Thompson points to the computer screen while his twin brother Paul looks on.

Thompson said that she likes to spend time or reading with her kids rather than watching T.V. Continued from page 149 her chemistry class and got to the point where the professor recognized them, as they frequently raised their hands and asked questions. One of the most common images concerning children of divorced parents was portrayed on television as the " latchkey kid " , a child who came home to an empty house and watched television until his or her parents came home. However, this was not always the rule for children of single parents or college students, for that matter. Sociology major and divorced father of three, Frederick Martinez, said he felt the time his sons had spent alone definitely had some negative aspects. Although they had learned independence at an early age, he often felt that " the T.V. acted as their parents. " To make up for the time they had to spend with " the electronic babysitter " , he wished he could spend more quality time with them. He added that he t ried to make the most of the time that he did get to spend with his children. " I constantly hug and kiss them, " he said. The social aspect of college was a major factor in the stereotypical student ' s after arriving at the university fresh out of high school. The promise of football games and nights out on Mill Avenue was not an option that was always open to students with children. For re-entry those over the age of 25, and espe- cially those with children and other responsibilities, the experience could be quite different. Martinez said that although he was coming from a very different place having spent a good part of his adult life in the work force and having last attended school in the early 70s, he enjoyed talking to all of the different kinds of people that comprised his classes. He felt that this could only add to his college experience. " I ' m proud to be here, " he said. " I can benefit (from conversation) as well as them, " he said. The re-entry office, located in the lower level of the MU, served a social gathering purpose as well as a network of support for those involved. There were often fliers posted that let students know about child care options and activities that were geared specifically toward re-entry students. Martinez said that before he decided to return to school, he thought of investing in other things like real estate, but opted for something much more valuable. " I decided to invest in me, " he added.

There have been a lot of changes in the educational system, one being that students felt they had the opportunity to question what the teacher had to say. Many students said they preferred it when their professors had an open-door policy, where students could approach them in an informal setting. " All of the teachers in my classes have open door policies, " sophomore Sergio Nieto said. " They have clear ly stated that from the very beginning, but I learned that we must take advantage of that before it ' s too late. " Often, some students said they didn ' t feel as if their professors cared whether they learned the material or not, and were more concerned with giving out grades, but most of the students interviewed said they felt that the teacher generally cared about whether they succeeded or not.

" I don ' t know if its because you feel a inferior or what, but in the end I learned that the sooner you go the better off you are in their class. " Generally, many students said they felt that their professors were knowledgeable about their courses, and felt confident that what they were learning in the classes would eventually help them when they got into their career field. " My (engineering) teacher is very smart, " Puckett said. " I really believe if he wanted to, he could program anything. " Nieto said he felt the same way about his professor in his justice studies course, who was very concise. " My professor in my justice studies is straight and to the point, " he said. " He also has a very clear mind with his students. " Having the education and being knowledgeable of the topic was what many said impressed them the most. Scott Burgus " In my history class my professor is very Emily Peterson said, " and hardly anyone questions her because most of the time she ' s right and she is very educated. All my teachers are. They either have a doctorate or their masters, which impresses me a lot. " on page 154 Scott Burgus Helping Brigeda Mascarenas write a Spanish paper, teacher Allen Bernier takes time to give assistance. Some teachers spent extra time with students after class. Continued from page 153 There was always an opposite side to this viewpoint. Although this problem was not directly attributable to the teachers, many students tended to address to problem of classroom overcrowding, " My psychology class is huge, " Tanya Sanderson said. " I know ASU is a big campus, but I wish there was a way to cut down on the number of people in class, because it ' s hard to get a discussion of any kind going. Also, a lot of the time I think it limits the professors to what they can do in the classroom. " Despite this complaint, there was a general agreement among students interviewed that their professors overcame these obstacles in various ways. Many professors tried to approach teaching creatively in order to make up for one-on- one tutoring. " My professor shows videos in class, " junior Tom Jones said. " This helps in my psychology class because it gives us a better perspective on how the brain functions and it helps to see that. " Another way professors overcame of huge classroom populations was using other lecturers who had knowledge of what was being taught in their particular course. Nieto said that this enhanced his own experience. " In my physiology class a couple of professors came to talk about what they knew about the heart ' s functions, " Nieto said. " It proved to be quite interesting because many of the professors were very knowledgeable and some even had experience in this field. This helped the students quite a bit because we had trust that the professors knew what they were about and it gave us more informatior about the heart which helps on exams. I: also encourages us who want to stud; medicine to go on with our goals because see success ' through these professors. " Sanderson said she had also benefitted from lecturers in her class. " My major is psychology, and it was quite interesting to hear someone who is a professional talk about field, " Sanderson said. " The reason why it is so interesting is because I knew they were talking from experience and this helped to motivate me to become a psychologist because I have seen how successful they have and have been a witness to the advice that they have given. A lot of times we take professors for granted, but w get what we pay for. There are a lot of flaws in the education system and I believe by learning from the professor and working together those flaws can be corrected. " 154 Noelle Kaneshiro, Philosophy Mark Kennedy, Poli.

" They didn ' t suffer at all, " he said. " They turned out just fine. I was really surprised. " Sparks said that he normally took about 12 or 13 hours each semester, but that most of his classes were music performance courses that were worth one or two credit hours, but involved much more. " I have nine to 12 hours of practice just for one class, " he said. " Then I have concert attendance, jazz improv and piano. I ' m surrounded by music. I really like that. " Being an alternative band, August Red was almost assured of having an audience that was made up of mainly college students. " It helped out at first, " Spector said. " Frankly, we used to have a totally greek audience, but now it ' s only about 20 percent.

" You get the compliments locally and people really like your music. It ' s really rewarding. " On top of going to school and playing with Blitzen, Sparks also participated in work-study by putting in 20 hours a week in the financial aid office. How did he get rid of the stress?

" Jeremy Jernigan Taking a moment to help Mesa Mayoral Candidate Sally statistics major Ghulam Warsi signs her petition. Garrison, an ASU student, was required to gather the 340 signatures to be eligible to run for mayor. Photo by Craig Valenzuela As if worrying about homework, jobs, and relationships weren ' t enough, a couple of ASU students decided that they wanted to run for city offices. Rob Gresser, Warren Apel, and Sally Garrison all decided that they would like to run for mayor. Gresser and Garrison joined twenty other hopefuls who were also running for the office of Mayor of Mesa. Apel was running for Tempe mayor. Although this may have seemed to be overwhelming, all three candidates posessed self-confidence. " Basically, I think I ' d make a good mayor " Apel said. " There are a lot of college students who want to be politically active and who want to vote, but they have no one to represent them. " " I ' m the guy who will be there for them. " Although Gresser recieved a lot of criticism from people because he was only 20 years old, he still had confidence in his abilities. " The Mesa Tribune predicts that I ' ll come in no less than third, although many of the people behind the scenes would say that I don ' t have a snowball ' s chance in hell. I just shut them out-it ' s their opinion, " Gresser said. Gresser had a very SPECIFIC REASONS for running for mayor. " I got tired o everyone complaining about the city and not doing anything about it. I worked in retail for the city, and everyone would come in complaining and PEOPLE in office, " he said. " If you ' re going to complain, be ready to do something about it or don ' t complain at all. " Gresser did do something about it. So did Garrison, who is also running for Mayor of Mesa. " I didn ' t like any of the people who were running, and I joked about it with my family. Then I thought ' why not me? ' I decided that I had nothing to lose, " she said. Apel had plans for the city of Tempe it he was elected. " I want to put bike paths in around Tempe. So many of the population rely on bicycles for transportation, and the streets aren ' t set up for them, " he said. " I would also like to start a curbside recycling program. There ' s NO EXCUSE for not having one Garrison also had plans for transportation. " The transit system is so limited, it seems like Mesa stops at Gilbert [road], which is doesn ' t, " she said. Gilbert also wanted to keep up with the homeless programs. " The city ' s really involved with funding programs for the homeless. I ' d like to see that continue, " she said. Continued on page 162 Craig Valenzuela Handing out literature about his campaign, sophomore Rob Gresser speaks to Mesa resident Paul Mooney. Gresser, a full- time student at ASU, was a Mesa mayoral candidate. Continued from page 161 Gresser had three main goals in his campaign. " First I ' d like to unify the city. The citizens and the government are constantly fighting and nothing ' s getting done. Second, I ' d like to work on making the city more cost-effecient. There are less expensive ways of spending. And third, I want to prepare Mesa for the transition into the twenty-first century. If we ' re not prepared, we ' ll find out pretty quick, and the city will crumble, " he said. Gresser was also involved in community service, something which is quite uncommon for a mayoral candidate. He collected 2,500 lbs of food for the homeless and took part in a toy drive for needy children. There was concern over the youth of the three candidates. " Maybe we do need some youth. Until now, the 30 ' s, 40 ' s and 50 ' s generations have been doing it, and it hasn ' t worked. We need someone with new ideas who is open to change. " As with all elections, there was the subject of finanes to be dealt with. Apel felt that an elaborate or expensive campaign was not necessary for success. " I ' m running on a zero-budget campaign. A lot of people ask how I ' m financing my campaign. That question implies that you must have money to run or to win. You should be able to run without having ads on t.v. and signs on the side of the road, " he said. Although Apel wasn ' t spending money on his campaign he did have a way to make himself known. " I want to let people know I ' m running " he said. " They can read articles in the newspaper or interviews and then decide ' I like what this guy ' s saying ' and ' I think I ' ll vote for him ' or " I don ' t agree with what he ' s saying. Garrison was also trying to run a low budget campaign. " I ' m financing most of my campaign myself, so I want to keep it as low-budget as possible " she said. " Most of my family members want to help out. I ' m not going to do any street signs or any posters-to me they ' re just an annoyance. " Gresser decided it was important to keep up with what was going on in the world. " If I ' m elected, I ' ll take two classes a semester to I can bring the most up to date information to the city, " he said. The lack of registered voters in the city of Tempe was a big concern for Apel. " The number of people voting is drastically low. We have the right to vote, but in Tempe only half of the population are registered, and of that only ten percent actually go to the polls. That ' s letting a pretty small amount of people decide who will win, he said. Gresser agreed. " Everyone at ASU should register to vote, not just for Mesa. Nobody should squander the priviledge to vote- that ' s throwing away their freedom, " he said. Hasan Mushtaq, Civil Eng.

Religion could be a touchy subject because it dealt with a person ' s inner beliefs and emotions that other people may not agree with. The discussion of religion could cause people with differing ideas to become angry or agitated, because they did not believe what their counterparts might have believed in. Religion could bring out the worst and best in people. For some, their religious beliefs helped them get through each day. For others, religion played no part in their lifestyle. " My Presbyterian belief helps me deal with everyday situations in a more positive and optimistic way, " said Kimberly Merck, a sophomore biology mayor. The Atheist belief could be stated as not believing in a SUPREME BEING. This belief was not usually to dampen religion, but looking at it with a different perspective. " My Atheist belief helps me see things through a different sector, " said Daniel Miller, junior education major. " I feel some people use their religious beliefs for the wrong reasons. " There would always be an argument when dealing with religion. Some people felt that there were people who were too religious. Arguing with a student, Steve Cook gives his opinion on women, homosexuality and religion. The evangelists on Cady Mall sometimes drew crowds of more than 300 people making it difficult for students to get to class. Photo by Irwin Daugherty " I feel some people carry religion to an extreme, " said Elaine Evans, a sophomore accounting major. " It becomes a problem when religion is forced upon people. People are turned off when religion is UPON them. " Being in a relationship with someone who was not of your religion could sometimes be difficult. " People totally freak out when they find out that I ' m Atheist, " Miller said. " If I ' m in a relationship with someone who is not Atheist, their parents have a greater problem than the person I ' m seeing Many students said they felt that a person ' s religion did not determine who they could date or who their friends should be. " You have to accept everyone for who they are, " Evans said. " Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. " However, this philosophy was put to the test whenever students tried to walk through Cady Mall. The evangelists who chose to use their right to freedom of speech to share the " GOOD NEWS " with others on Cady Mall were considered by some to be overbearing. on page 166 Lonnie Power, Mgmt.

Marco was just one of many evangelists who used the Cady Mall area to share their views with students. " We ' re not preaching religion; we ' re not preaching church-we ' re just flat plain simple coming out here and giving the Bible, and God ' s doing the rest, " he said. Although some hostility was expressed, many students felt that the evangelists had the right to be there. " I feel that they have every right to be there. I ' m not a Christian, so I don ' t agree with everything they say, " said Edward Weidle, a senior history major, " but they ' re Americans and they have rights just like I do. They can say anything they feel like saying. " Not all students agreed the evangelists message was positive. " They have the right to be there just as anyone else does, but I don ' t necessarily agree with anything they say, " said Robert Shaw, a junior communication major.

Religion always brought controversy to the campus. He was referring to instances where individuals had been pointed out and accused of specific sins. " I ' ve walked by with girls before and had them [the evangelists] call them sluts and masturbators, " Shaw said. " It can be very embarrassing. " Marco used the Bible to explain why his preaching could be taken offensively. " Scripture says that preaching the gospel will seem foolish and offensive to those who are dying in their sins, " he said. There were some complaints that the preachers were interfering with students trying to get to class. It was proposed that the evangelists be moved to the Hayden Library lawn. " I don ' t think that you can designate an area for free speech, " Weidle said. " They should be responsible enough to know that if they ' re right in the middle of the mall, they can be an obstacle. They should be considerate. If the crowd is too large to get through, they should say ' let ' s continue this discussion over here ' and get out of the way. " The large crowds that would sometimes gather had the potential to cause a problem for people trying to get to class. " The crowds were a little out of hand- larger than they should have been, " Weidle said. " I didn ' t have a problem, but some handicapped students may have had difficulty. " Through all of the controversy, the evangelists remained. " As far as I ' m concerned, all campus areas are free speech areas, " Marco said. " God ' s in charge. If he wants us to preach, than no one can stop that. " Irwin Daugherty A major decision. Changing majors was common for many students, and almost every student had a different reason. Six students explained why they changed, and didn ' t change, majors and its effects in their lives. Don Moden, a 24-year-old decision and information systems major, used to be an accounting major. He had been at ASU fo r four years and planned to graduate in July 1992. " I had actually finished with my accounting degree and I wasn ' t satisfied with the education I got out of it. So I switched over to DIS. " Moden also had another reason. " Probably another major reason was that I was wanting to get a dual major, and the business school doesn ' t allow congruent majors, " he said. " So I just decided to change to DIS and get my degree in that, and then I ' d basically have TWO DEGREES " Moden said he didn ' t have any problems changing his major. " I had to refill out my program of studies, which took maybe an hour and a half to type that up, but after I handed that in, it was no problem. " Receiving advice from counselor Kevin Cook, Paula Drake tries to decide on what classes to take. Drake, a senior, changed her five times in four years before deciding on Political Science. Photo by Scott Burgus STUDENTS CHANGING MAJors Moden said changing his major did not effect his graduation date much. Being that I stayed within the business school (it wasn ' t affected) because I had already met all of the business core requirements, so the only thing I had to do when I changed my major was fulfill the DIS requirements, which was only 18 hours, " he said. " I kind of had a plan so it worked out to my benefit. " Debbie Holborow, a 19-year-old justice studies major, was previously a business major who had been at ASU for two years. " It was very dry, " she said. " It was too much theory . . . I just didn ' t think that the classes that I was taking were going to help me out in the business world, if that ' s what I chose to do. " Holborow also said she didn ' t encounter problems with changing her major. " The only thing that maybe happened was, right, that classes like accounting . . . I took upper math courses that wouldn ' t really help me so they were electives . . . and my electives [I] would have rather taken things I was more interested in. " HOLBOROW SAID changing her major did affect her graduation date " by a semester, but I ' m on page 170 Stan Pirog Discussing the for a business major, Jeff Hind tries to advise Shawn Hubbellon the right classes to take. Some changed their majors two or three times before graduating. Continued from page 168 just probably going to go to summer school. " Chris Kemper, a 25-year-old general business major, used to be a pre-med student. He had attended ASU for four and a half years. " I just decided that that was not what I wanted to do, " he said. " I originally went in, my father ' s a doctor. I ' ve been involved in medicine all my life. That ' s what I thought I wanted to do. It was more of just a personal decision. It was what I expected as far as the degree. " Sarah Gale, a 21-year-old history major, was an English major who had been at ASU for four years. " When I was the English major, I was taking English courses and stuff and they were interesting, but I was taking a couple of history courses at the time and they interested me more than my English major stuff, " she said. " I figured a history major wouldn ' t be too specific where I couldn ' t get a job with it. " Gale said that changing majors actually helped her to graduate sooner than planned. " I wasn ' t very organized to begin with, so actually, changing my major and getting down to it and doing... a program of study and everything like that helped a lot, " she said. She added that the people who took her through the process of changing her major were very helpful. " They pretty much told me everything I needed to know, where to go and who to get to sign it, " she said. John Berreman, a 21-year-old marketing major, started out as a finance major. He had been at ASU for three and a half years. " I took some finance class and I realized ' that the lack of creativity in the major just wasn ' t for me, " he said. " I wanted some- thing that, allowed more freedom . . . rathe than just crunching numbers. " Berreman said changing majors changer his social life as well. " It caused me to join a professional orga nization called Pi Sigma Epsilon which is marketing fraternity and that changed social life a lot, " he said. " I ' ve been vet pleased with that. " Kara Scanlon was a 20-year-old broad casting major who had never changed her major. She had attended ASU for three years and was scheduled graduate in May. " Well, I just knew what I wanted, " she said. " I really enjoyed the field of broadcasting and I started of f with it and... decided to stick with it. And I ' ve also heard a lot of people graduate with a major and they do absolute! nothing with it, so I wasn ' t stressed about ' well, if I graduate with this, I have to get a job in this field. ' I knew that even if I just had a degree in broadcasting I could go somewhere else too.

After some consideration, we thought that the best wa y to give any reader an insight into how the disabled decided what mattered at our university was to have a first-person perspective. So, we turned to an ex-staffer, Kay Olson,a 23-year-old senior who majored in Political Science and English. We asked her to give us an insight into what life was like for her at Arizona State. I chose ASU for the weather. Like anyone from Minnesota, the chance to not spend half of each year wrapped in turtlenecks, parkas, snow boots and woolen hats has its appeal.

DSR helped students get around, both on campus and in Tempe. sunny university I scouted out that was largely wheelchair accessible. Basically, that means there are ramps and elevators and other accommodations that would be helpful to someone about 4 feet tall. I have what you might call an intimate relationship with several campus elevators. That is, they break down, and I swear at them. A maintenance man told me that one of the older elevators was installed in the ' 50s, the first of its kind in Arizona. Such technology can slow you down, but it comes in handy as an excuse for class: " No, professor, I don ' t have my because I spent the weekend in the elevator. " Actually, the University is among the nation ' s best in accommodating students, which is not to say it couldn ' t stand some As a freshman I once took a dive into University Drive because of what my wounded ego would call a grossly inadequate curb cut. I was rescued by three big guys who lived in nearby Manzanita. Great way to meet football on page 174 Scott Burgus Using the wheelchair lift in Matthews Center, Kay Olson goes to work. Olson, a senior in English and Political Science, said that one reason she chose ASU was because of its accessibility. Continued from 173 players. But Disabled Student Resources has helped me out many times with maintenance on my scooter, as well as saving me after complete breakdowns in the middle of campus. The Student Recreation Complex is also well-known for its facilities for the disabled. this means I no longer have an excuse to not work out. Being a disabled student is like to any other minority: you have special needs, some of which are readily available while others you have to fight for. A couple years ago, after the new expansion to Hayden Library opened, disabled students learned that the ramp built for wheelchairs to use between the old and new parts of the library was nearly impossible to go up with a manual wheelchair, because it was too long and steep. It became a bit of a political battle before students working with fixed the situation. A lift was installed as an alternative to the ramp, but even now the ramp remains too long, with this kamikaze hairpin tur n that is hard for many electric to maneuver. There are plenty of skid marks along the wall to prove it. I ' ve left a couple there myself. The difference between disabled and other minorities would be, first of all, that the is benign. Some people are or overly helpful without aware of what they are doing. It ' s hard to know whether to risk insulting them to explain what ' s wrong, or to just let it slide. Secondly, people have preconceived ideas that can be hard to bust. For instance, " disabled " doesn ' t just mean someone who has trouble walking. It also refers to the learning disabled and vision and hearing impaired. Obviously, each group has different needs, and this makes it harder to prioritize at a large university. Sometimes such complexities can make it difficult to accomplish certain goals. There is one bonus to having an electric scooter on campus, though. Other students on the mall think I ' m one of those annoying beeper carts and step aside. If I ' m in a hurry, it ' s like the parting of the Red Sea.

Perhaps the best part of creating friendships was their potential for complete non-bias: blindness to age, color, race, sex or religion. The definition of a " friend " could vary as much as the person who may have fit the title. We ' ve probably all known people who appeared to be everyone ' s friend, always at the center of attention and making everyone laugh. And then came the moment of truth when we were forced to ask ourselves, " Is this person really my friend? " " To me, it ' s somebody I know will be there for me when and if I need them, " Senior Psychology major Jackie Cotrell said.

Having been in her fourth year at ASU, Cotrell seemed to have acquired a vast array of friends. Many different kinds of people who ranged from acquaintances to " buddies " to her closest companions. After reflection upon the many people she had come to know, she determined that the majority of her closest friends were male. She said they asked her advice a lot, and she would gladly provide the female point of view from her " non-women woman status " that she seemed to maintain among them. " I ' ve sat in on some morning after stories that would amaze you, " she confided. Cotrell said she was more picky about her female friends for some reason. " Whenever I go out with my girlfriends, I feel like it ' s usually a competition, " she explained. She said that this tended to create jealousy between friends that should never have " (That ' s) something I really don ' t like, " she said. She said that things were usually different when she was out with guys. " They watch out for me, " Cotrell said. " When I ' m out with girls I feel like I have to take care of them. " The differences in friends of either sex and the kinds of companions they made could be obvious, but sometimes hard to label. " I think the levels are different, " senior English major Francis Leech explained. " With girls, you can be more frank and honest.

Scott Burgus Scott Burgus Sharing a drink and a conversation, Tonia Bell and Andrea Skalon sit on a wall outside of Carl ' s Jr. Skalon and Bell had gone to school with each other since they were in the second grade. Continued from page 177 Leech decided his closest friends were split fifty-fifty between men and women, each serving different purposes. The differences between men and women were quite apparent, aside from any stereotypes or generalizations. In agreement with Leech ' s observation ofwomen and their communicative abilities (typically easier for them than for men), another comment was made. " Guys sometimes have a tendency for verbal diarrhea, " said one source who preferred to remain anonymous. Andrea Skalon and Tonia Bell came to ASU as freshmen from Tempe ' s Corona del Sol High School. They said that they had gone to school with each other since they were in second grade and had been close friends since they were about nine years old. " She was always there when I needed her, " Skalon said. Skalon and Bell also said that they hung around with the same group of friends and they both also participated in on-campus activities together, one being the fact that they were both cymbal players in the ASU Sun Devil Marching Band. Bell said that she and Skalon had " never had a falling out " and attributed their in their friendship to being similar types of people. " I guess it ' s because we have so much in common, " she said. " We always get along whatever we do. " Friends of the pair said that they were rarely seen solo and that they fit the term " best friends " to a " t " . However, friendships such as theirs were not always the rule, but the exception. As people grew older and went their separate ways, one inevitable circumstance almost everyone experienced was the loss of people with whom at one time you were very close. Cotrell looked at this possibility as a way to distinguish long-lasting friendships from casual acquaintances. " The people that were meant to be in your life will, no matter where you go, " Cotrell said. She also, added that the people she was closest to were those she had some sort of " weird connection with " . Is Perhaps a real sense of a friend was someone whom you didn ' t necessarily have to see very often. The feeling that nothing had really changed once reunited was a true indication of one of those special people. For example, some of the best friends we may have had were those we knew in high school and that we didn ' t get to see very much after graduation. When it came time for the reunion, however, it may have been as if no time had passed whatsoever and that special spark that made friendships was still there. So, what exactly was it that drew certain people together and repelled others like two magnets from the same pole? " They don ' t have to be extremely intelligent; just make the most of what they have, " Cotrell explained.

In an overpopulated world, birth control has diversified into an issue concerning not only prevention of pregnancy, but also death. New methods of birth control, such as the female condom, have been developed in recent years. How did the students of ASU feel about birth control? Students gave their opinions about birth control responsibility, discussing its importance in relationships, how frequently it was used, the most common and preferred methods of birth control and how education plays a role in usage and abortion. The responsibility of birth control has been a debatable issue; however, many students said that the responsibility of birth control fell on the shoulders of both individuals. " They ' re both getting enjoyment from it, so they should both take responsibility, " 21-year-old Holden Unger Jeff Cardello Vincent Cardenas Matthew Cardiff Candy Carlson Todd Carmer Karen Leeson Carr Timothy Carroll Scott Cartan Paula Cartright Renee Caruss James Cassidy Frank Chang John Clark Steven Clark Kristen Clemons Ang Clinton Donald Clytus Jennifer Como Michelle Conway Sean Core W.

Juliebeth Arnold, a 22-year-old accounting major, agreed with Unger. " Both are partially responsible because one can ' t get pregnant without the other, " she said. Some students clarified their views further. " If a woman doesn ' t say something I think the man should ask, " said " Janet " (all names in quotes are pseudonyms),a 27-year-old journalism major. One feature of birth control in a few opinions was pregnancy. " I think, yeah, in the end, she ' s the one that has to have the baby, but, it ' s the man ' s responsibility, if he wants to enjoy it, he needs to have responsibility, " said Karen Heywood, a 22-year-old Spanish major. " Realistically, I think it ' s the woman ' s, " said " Ted. " " She ' s got to accept the Talking about birth control can be the first step in usage. Students indicated that discussing birth control in a relationship is difficult. " It ' s not the kind of thing people feel comfortable talking about, especially in the heat of the moment, " said Robert Hoffman, a 39-year-old justice studies major. Hoffman was not the only person who said talking about birth control is of the situation. " A lot of people say it ruins the moment, " said Heywood. " You know, you wait too long and by then it ' s too late. " on page 182 Scott Burgus Because it ' s such a big deal, it just needs to be talked about, " said " Ted, " a 23-year-old accounting major. However, Holden Unger felt that birth control is easier to discuss with a friend. One student said she finds it easy to discuss. " It ' s not something I shy away from, " " Janet " said. " I ' m educated and comfortable. " Hoffman said that talking about birth control is " the kind ofthing you have to be comfortable with, " in regard to AIDS. Was birth control used often enough? Some students said that pregnancy and disease statistics prove that birth control is not used as often as it should be. " It ' s talked about a lot but I don ' t think people use it as much as they talk about it, " Heywood said. The controversial issue ofabortion as a birth control method was also a debatable issue. Students felt abortion was not a method of birth control. " It ' s an easy out, " said Unger. " That should be the last of all possible options. " Heywood said she did not believe abortion was a birth control method, but added " I do feel that it ' s the woman ' s choice. . . if there ' s some woman out there that wants to use it as birth control, it ' s her choice. " The most practiced of various birth control methods as well as the most desired methods of birth control were similar. The most com- monly used birth control methods mentioned by students were the birth control pill, condoms and diaphragms. The most commonly methods were the pill and condoms. " By the guy, I believe he thinks the pill is the best, " Heywood said about preferred methods. " He doesn ' t have to worry about putting anything on or, you know, about ruining the moment. But for the girl, if she wants to be real safe, she uses the pill, you know, um, but I think she ' d prefer the condom. " " Janet, " however, expressed concern about side effects of the pill. " I don ' t think there is enough proven about the pill, " she said. " It ' s had an effect on my body I just don ' t like. " Education about birth control was also a controversial issue. " Sue, " a 21-year-old communications major, said education about birth control must start with the parents. Other students said education about birth control could help them, although not all agreed. " I think awareness alone increases the likelihood " of using birth control, Unger said. " Whether they know about it or not, if they get to that moment and there ' s peer pressure, they ' re gonna do it. They ' re not going to use birth control, " Heywood said Scott Burgus Purchasing a condom out of a machine in a restroom, a student takes precautions against STDs and pregnancy.

Nikki Kasapis started her own business in her senior year at ASU. She was the owner of BMOC (Big Man On Campus), a T-shirt business, and she ran the Greek Review. " The job market was bad when I graduated, " she said. " I wanted to have my own business and to be my own boss, so I took out a loan and started BMOC. " To have an effective business, Kasapis felt that one must work hard and have a motivated staff, like she had at BMOC. " All of my sales reps are students except three, " she said. " They all are hard working and this is why my business is so successful. " Competition was something businesses such as BMOC had to face every day. " This field is very competitive, " Kasapis said, " and the way to get the edge over competitors is through my sales reps and by sponsoring a lot of events. " ASU played a HUGE PART in Kasapis ' motivation to start her own business. " I wouldn ' t be doing what I am doing, without the education I received at ASU, " she said. " I owe a lot of my success to two of my professors in the business department, one of Loading an air compressor into his car, Dan Zrna prepares to go to work.

" Kasapis ' employees were VERY IMPORTANT to her and some of them had motivations of their own. " Nikki has really motivated me, because she is so young and so successful, " BMOC Manager Maura Daugherty said. " I would like to start my own business some day and be just as successful. " Susanne Falk who worked in the Art Department agreed with Daugherty. " I am very content growing with this company, " Falk said. " I like the way I am treated a nd I like the atmosphere. " Kasapis has owned and run BMOC for the last three and a half years. " It takes a lot of hard work and luck, " she said. " You must BE PREPARED with good work ethics to succeed. It is very time-consuming, but also it gives you a chance to feel you have succeeded and accomplished a lot. " Dan Zrna was another student who owned a business, but he ran it from his own home. on page 186 Marlon Ebert Sean Ebner Sergio Echerivel John Elliott Matt Elliott Gary Elthie Adam Epstein Gregory Erickson Kevin Evanishyn Kristi Evans Stephanie Evans Deborah Exner Pete Falivene Mubashar Farooq Donald Faulkner Continued from page 185 He did mobile home service work felt he was quite successful.

" What I ' m really debating about now is sticking to this business of doing service work for mobile homes. It has been quite successful and I feel everything is going well in this field of work. " Zrna felt that the key to his success was having good relations with his customers. " I started out working this trade in 1976 and since then I have worked for mobile home factories, cabinet companies and home builders, " he said.

Ever since then people have come to me and I decided to go off on my own and start my own business. All my customers have been pleased with my work and I ' ve learned throughout the years that you don ' t keep a customer waiting. I ' ve worked hard to keep all of my appointments and if I don ' t, my customers are notified ahead of time. " Zrna felt differently about his education then Kasapis. He felt he learned the most about running a business on his own. " I feel that my education has helped me a little bit, " he said. " The reason I say this is because I gained most of my knowledge through experience. I have worked in this trade for 15 years and what I have learned has come from the resource of watching and learning. I do owe ASU for helping me to create solutions to problems. In fact, I am recognized by Valley manufacturers who need solutions to certain problems. This I owe to ASU. " In his field there were also a lot of competitors, but Zrna said he didn ' t fear that. " Once you get your foot in the door, there is no stopping your success, " he said. " I established a good reputation by working for another company and once that shut down, people still knew me and wanted me to work for them. I repair and do everything myself. I do cabinetry work, electrical work and plumbing. My business flourishes when the snowbirds come down. Now that I don ' t have school, I have more time to do this. " Zrna said he felt that his good relationships with his customers built himself a job that he enjoyed. " I really like this job, " he said. " I am dedicated to what I do and I try to give my customers the quality they deserve. Dedication is important to anyone who wants to start their own business because it makes the job done that much better. I get along with people well and I ' ve learned good communication skills. That is one thing you need in this type of business, because once you have established good relations with your customers, you have established something successful and worthwhile. " It seemed as though everyone, upperclassmen as well as freshmen, skipped at least one class sometime throughout the year. Newcomers quickly caught on to ASU ' s attendance policy. They realized that there often wasn ' t one. The strict guidelines they once followed in high school became a thing of the past. In fact, their entire academic lifestyle did a complete turn-around. With so many new and interesting things for them to spend their time doing, it was no wonder many cut classes in an effort to fit everything in. Leanne Rye, a freshmen, said it wasn ' t unusual for her to skip a class or two when she " had something better to do, " though she said that she tried to keep this behavior from becoming a habit. " If I skipped whenever I felt like it, I ' d never be in class, " Rye said. Yet it wasn ' t unheard of for upperclassmen, despite their lengthy college experience, to occasionally blow off Daniel Gallagher Barry Garbarino Juan Garcia Sally Garrison Angela Geiger Michael Geiger Rudy Geneeha Kevin Gibbons Ian Gilbert Ron Gilchrist Lisa Gilligan Sean Girdaukas Matthias Gobbert Laurie Lane Goldberg Mark Goldie John Gonner Tom Gonzales Denise Gooding Michael Gowing Patrick Green Steven Green Teddi Green Keith Guiley Amy Gustafson Brisa Gutierrez Karla Guy Jason Haag Marla Halsne Jody Halverson Tamara Hamilton Sneaking a peek at a cheat sheet, an unidentified receives some help on a test. Cheating at ASU could lead to expulsion from the university. classes. Junior Angela Parsons admitted to doing so from time to time, but for different reasons. " It depends on my work schedule, " Parsons said. " Work sometimes comes first. " One of the things Parsons said she had learned was determining which classes she could successfully be absent from. " I never really miss hard classes, " she said. " I will only miss the ones I know I can make up. 99 Although cutting classes was a regular occurrence, some students believed they could not do it. Colin Roberts, an 18-year- old freshman, explained why he didn ' t cut classes. " Because college is hell, and if I skipped class I ' d be so far behind, " he said. An attendance policy would be one solution to the problem. However, Roberts said he didn ' t think that ASU should have one. As for the people who skipped classes, Roberts gave his opinion. " Well, if they ' re smart enough to come on the first day and the final, more power to them, " he said. Senior Joy Bell, a chemical engineering major said that she skipped class " very She attributed her good attendance record to the consequences she faced when she didn ' t attend class. " " I end up studying more than I would have to, " she said. " I wouldn ' t know what was on the test. " She said that many of her friends cut classes regularly, and some pressured her to skip along with them if there was " something better " to do, but she rarely gave in. page 190 Stan Pirog Stan Pirog Passing some time at the Hayden Library light house, Kris Pasisis and Sam Costanzo discuss their plans for the evening. Some students opted to socialize rather than attend classes. Continued page 189 " (If I skip classes,) it ' s usually to finish something that I haven ' t finished that ' s due later on in the day, " she said. " Either that, or I ' ve overslept. " Sometimes, students relied on extra credit that was offered to the whole class by the teacher. This could often help the student boost their grade when having missed too many notes put their final grade in jeopardy. Did students who regularly attend class resent the fact the sometimes, the class-skippers could still receive an " A " or a " B " in the course? " I really don ' t mind it, ' Bell said. " I usually need the extra credit, too. " Still, many became " addicted " to blowing off classes and discovered themselves in jeopardy when tests or exams reared their ugly heads. Some of these panic-stricken students resorted to cheating. Many relied on the art of cheating to pull passing grades. Some got away with it and some didn ' t. But it was definitely a popular activity whether people merely thought about it or actually did it. Some methods that some students said were common included writing on the desks, using " crib sheets " and writing notes in the calculator cases on the desks. Parsons confessed that cheating was tempting to her. " I have definitely thought about it, " she said. " Sometimes I wish I could bring myself to do it, but I just can ' t. " Bell said she rarely thought about cheating because she would eventually have to know the material somewhere down the line, but that there were certain classes of hers where cheating was common among students. " In jazz, there would be people with notes in front of them on the floor, " she said in disbelief. " Like you ' d really have to cheat in jazz! " She added that in her Jazz in America ' class, the teacher often let the students know what to study for the exam. " If the teacher tells you what ' s on the test, you shouldn ' t have to cheat, " she said. In most of her engineering courses, how- ever, Bell said that there were very few instances of cheating. " In those classes, there ' s usually problem solving, and they let us take the formulas, " she said. " So there ' s really no way to cheat except by looking at someone else ' s paper. " Rye agreed that cheating was a thought, but said " it ' s totally wrong. " " If you ' re gonna cheat, you might as well not even go to school, " Rye said. " People are just cheating themselves. " Rye also expressed her belief that people who regularly missed classes and try to catch up by cheating " are never going to make it in college or anywhere else.

The reasons for this denial ranged from no or low monthly income, to simply having no credit history whatsoever. While most knew how important it was to have a credit history, many agreed that establishing this necessary credit was a difficult thing to do. How did people gain credit if no one was willing to give them a chance to prove themselves worthy of having it? Some were forced to have their parents co-sign for a credit or bank guarantee card. Also, some banks had " very lenient " requirements for students who applied for credit. These banks sometimes approved credit for students on the basis that even though they hadn ' t had any previous credit, they hadn ' t had any record of " bad credit " Although students ended up paying more for items that they had charged onto a credit card ' s account because Wanda Jackson Kenneth Jacoby Robert Jediny Vishal Jhunjhunwala Mi Jin Lloyd Hummel Sarah Imig Delia Inclan Chisako Inoguchi Claude Jackson Amanda Johnson Kevin Johnson Lonnie Johnson Irene Jones Jamie Jones Rebecca Jones Stephanie Rae Jones Megan Joy Joplin Bernardio Jordan Brandon Bear June Molly Justice Christa Justus Patrick Kaser James Keith Cheri Keller Connie Kelly Michael Kelly Pamela Kelly Pamela Kerezman David Kexel of interest charges, they still were out in full force, putting life ' s necessities as well as luxuries on Visa, MasterCard and American Express, just to name a few. Nichole Michaelson, a sophomore, said that she had applied for several different credit cards from department stores but was denied credit for all of them. " There ' s too much emphasis placed on credit, " Michaelson said. " I think that if people have cash, they should pay with cash. " Another ASU student, who chose to anonymous and is identified as Bekka, said that having credit cards used to be important to her because they made it for her to " buy now and pay later. " " It was great if I didn ' t have any cash on me, " Bekka said. " I felt like I was getting something for nothing. And then the bills came. " Because of her outrageously high credit bills, she was forced to take " odd jobs at night. " In effect, she began staying out late and spending most of her time at work. Her academic attitude inevitably took a turn for the worst and she ended up dropping three of her four classes. " It was so easy for me to get my credit, " she said. " My parents helped me get my first card and after that, I started receiving cards in the mail that I didn ' t even apply for! " " I got my first credit card when I was eighteen, " Bekka said. " It was for a department store and I didn ' t use it that often. " on page 194 Wondering how she ' ll pay her bills, senior Phylis Tegethoff examines her credit card statements. Credit was easy for college students to obtain, but it left many students in debt. Scott Burgus Making a purchase at Tower Records, junior Jason Farrell uses his credit card. Credit cards made it convenient for students to make purchases when they were low on money. Continued from page 193 At that time, Bekka had a job and said she was able to pay off her credit card in full each month. After she quit her job, however, she received another card. " I received a Discover card that I had applied for before I left my job, " she said. " There was a $1000 limit on it and I maxed it within a matter of a few months. Since I didn ' t have a job, my mother helped me pay the bill until I found another one. " After the got another job, Bekka received a MasterCard in the mail that she said she did not remember applying for. This one (with a $3000 limit) was rarely used while she continued to pay off her Discover bill. Once the school year was over, however, Bekka ' s job ended and her spending began once again. " I used (the MasterCard) a s an ATM card most of the time, " she said. " Whenever I needed money, I just whipped out the card. " Bekka said that she did not charge up to the limit on that credit card, but she came very close to doing so. She said she realized then that she couldn ' t continue to spend as much as she had been. " When school started, I got another job that didn ' t pay much, but it was enough to pay my bills, " she said. " My mother still helped me out, but I tried to take on more of the responsibility myself. " She said she found that when she had charged a great deal on her credit cards, she was never able to get ahead financially, but simply to maintain a status quo. Credit companies with strict credit requirements more than likely realized that a lot of young people failed to live up to that responsibility. This often left their co-signers stuck footing the bill, or if there was no co- signer, the student would often be faced with a bad credit rating that was very difficult to repair. " Credit is what gets people in debt, " Michaelson said. Bekka said that she had learned a great deal from her bad experiences with credit cards and was trying to get herself back on track financially. " They ' re far too easy to use, " she said. " My philosophy now is, ' If I can ' t pay cash for it, I probably couldn ' t pay for it with a credit card, either.

One of the only effective ways to make a choice was by deciding what was the best option for you. To have a good self-image was one of the most important characteristics a student could possess. ASU wanted to support the students who wanted to maintain a good physical image by building a brand-new recreation center. " The facilities for physical fitness were getting old and the need for a quality center was rising, " said Gerry Maas, the Director of Sports and Student Activities. " Also, the times and space available did not meet with what the students wanted. The equipment was also getting old, and it was difficult to accommodate athletics and physical education.

Mansoor said " I feel self-conscious if I don ' t put on make-up. " Sometimes, the good self-image was hard to maintain when the older students were talking about the " freshman fifteen. " Who wanted to know that the majority of freshman gained fifteen pounds in their first year of college? " Both males and females go to the Student Recreation Complex, because they are physically interested, " Maas said. " To keep fit, to be muscular and to stay in shape are some of the motives for coming to the center. Also, advertisers present an image in magazines and television that many students want to be like. They strive to get this image by working out. " Many went to the Campus Corner and saw the calendars of Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer, which could destroy almost anyone ' s self-image. Also, Sly Stallone looked very physically fit when he posed for the cover of Gentleman ' s Quarterly. However, Maas said he thought the number-one reason why students went to the recreation center was because they enjoyed being there. Both male and female students probably were more active when they were younger, so they wanted to continue to work out. The men tended to play more racquetball, and the women frequented more aerobics classes. The recreation complex also created an extension to student health, the Wellness Office, which gave seminars on having a good self-image. They also provided mini-conferences about stress management and how to measure body fat composition. However, the first step to gaining self-confidence was often to think about the positive aspects about one ' s life. The students needed to outweigh the good points as opposed to the bad. The need for self-awareness became an essential tool for building self-confidence. on page 198 Scott Burgus Concentrating on an arm curl, Josh Freeling works out at the Student Recreation Complex. Some students felt that exercising their self-esteem and image. Continued from page 197 After this confidence was achieved, the students often could succeed more in love, work and school. Also, this urge to look good had increased rapidly in the nineties. Many actors and actresses spent thousands of dollars in reconstructive surgery, which, in turn, influenced the number of students getting nose jobs and liposuction. Enrollment at area health clubs and the purchase of health foods also increased steadily. More fast-food joints offered healthy foods and nutritious combos at a smaller price. The effectiveness of liquid diets had been questioned, especially when Oprah Winfrey regained all of the weight she had lost. And, people were starting to be more concerned with fat content and counting, as diet books always seemed to be on the best-seller lists. However, the " good-looking " hype did not come without a price tag. Buying new clothes and getting made over became more expensive. Vidal Sassoon, a new beauty salon at Scottsdale Galleria, charged $39 to $69 dollars for one basic haircut. The cost depended on the seniority of the hairdresser. Men often wanted clothes by Ralph Lauren and Z. Cavaricci, and name-brand pants were costing about $75. Some women wanted to get sculptured nails, which cost approximately $25 to $30. Then about a week later, they had to go back for fill-ins. Also, a positive self-image seemed to help students in the love department. Although physical attraction was important to some students, couples learned to love each other for who they were and not for who they wanted their partner to be. However, it was not often necessary to spend large amounts of money to feel good about yourself. Just believing in yourself was often enough to generate a personal style. A good self-image could well have encouraged students academically. Not having to worry about what you looked like may have made going to class a little easier. Often in high school, students just felt they just had to look good, but many people in college found themselves going to class in sweats. ASU tried to do its part in contributing to the student ' s self-image by building the Student Recreation Center. Ultimately, a good self-image usually started within the student and eventually, increased to help them succeed in school, love and life.

John Tvedt, a 25-year-old computer science graduate student, said one of his pet peeves was bikes on campus. " I ' ve been hit three times by bikes on campus, " he said. " One time, pretty seriously, too . . . I was crossing that street in the crosswalk and a bike nailed me at full speed there. And then he got up and yelled at me for being in his way. A bunch of my friends have been hit by bikes. That ' s my biggest pet peeve, definitely. " Tvedt suggested a remedy. " I know what I would like to do, " he said. " I ' d like to just not have them on campus. You know, not riding. You don ' t really need to ride a bike on campus.

Limited parking and expensive decals drove students to list parking as one of their pet peeves. Todd Yatsook, a 29-year-old music major, said trucks on campus was one of his pet peeves. " Why don ' t they just walk or use a smaller vehicle? " he said. " They ' re just in the way. It ' s like you ' re walking down a public street with all these vehicles riding down it. And they ' ve got a whole fleet of them. " Yatsook said the trucks " [were] an eyesore. . . . they don ' t add to the, aesthetic quality of the campus at all. " Yatsook also said cultivated grass on campus was another pet peeve of his. " Where ' re they getting all the water? " he said. Yatsook suggested a solution. " They should use plants that grow in this habitat, " he suggested. " It would look good, but they ' ve got to flood them every once in a while,too. That ' s not real attractive, either. " Susan Wells, a 20-year-old English major, said her pet peeve was the evangelists that visit the ASU campus. Wells alleged some said women were the cause of the bad economy because they took all the jobs. Wells also alleged that when one student asked if women should be home supporting their the preachers said yes. However, Wells couldn ' t provide a " I can ' t see any remedy, " she said. " They (the evangelists) have their rights. " Wells added that another pet peeve of hers was the rising costs of attending school and the " lowering of options " that students were open to, such as turning English 221 into a seminar-type course. John Bear, a 26-year-old business major, said his pet peeve was that ASU was " too big, (and has) too many students. " Continued on page 202 Jeremy Jernigan Scott Burgus Taking an alternate route, Ed Walker and senior Jeff Salmon avoid the maze of construction. Construction on campus made it difficult for students to get around campus. Continued from page 201 " Just trying to ask a question in class, and you ' ve got a class that ' s filled with two hundred students, you kind of feel intimidated, " he said. " If the teacher ' s not a very good teacher and he doesn ' t want to spend the time answering the question, while the students are waiting to get the class over with, you ' re kind of intimidated. " Bear, who was spending his first semester at ASU felt that the remedy lay in capping enrollment. " Lower registration, " he said. " Every university ' s got major bills they have to pay but this university is run by the state. A lot of it ' s financed by the state so I feel that some way they can keep a minimum enrollment . . . or do something just to keep the classes to a minimum. " Bear blamed the overcrowding on the administration. " It ' s too crowded and (there ' s) too much bureaucracy to go through to even get a class or to talk to a teacher, " he said. " It (the school) is not personal. " Don Eisenhour, a 28-year-old geology major, said his pet peeve was financial aid. " They seem to be not very efficient at what they do, " he said. " They keep sending letters about lack of qualification or, you know, you ' re no longer eligible because you don ' t have enough credits or because you ' ve been here too long and their records are never correct. For graduate students they don ' t the difference between graduate and undergraduate credits, so they keep saying that I should have graduated already when I have just started the program. So Igo back to them and I say, ' Okay, look, here ' s in transcripts and here ' s how much I ' ve taken, how much I need to take, my program of study. ' And they say, Well, you know, uh, our computer doesn ' t deal with that at the present time. ' And so that happens for, like, two or three years. Each year, they say I ' ve been terminated as a financial aid eligible recipient. " He said he " wrote a letter to the director of financial aid and Lattie Coor saying I thought it was kind of ridiculous. " Eisenhour explained one solution. " I think the solution is that they should take the time to correct the problem in the beginning, " he said. " It ' s true that sometimes it takes more time and effort in the short run to make something work correctly. But in the long run, you save yourself a lot of time, and in our case, a lot of money, and I think that they are unwilling to do that. I think it ' s a short- sighted view of the whole system. They should make the effort now and not pay CLOSED THIS Eileen Post Raden Pajar Prakoso Jennifer Pugmire Sanjay Purohit Cathleen Quigley Roberto Quinones Shaun Rachau Lori Railing Janelle Ramos Javier Ramos Patrick Rathburn Bradley Ravish Heather Rawson Susan Recer Emily Susan Rhodes Bryce Riddle James Rigney Rebecca Rilling Corry Rinehart Barbara Ritter Jennifer Roberts Rita Roberts Mirza Roland Antonia Romo Karim Rosario Melissa Rosenberg Charles Rostocil Sara Roswick Hilie Ruby John Rupe Jr. What I am going to do without my nice, warm bed? Your bed, along with your family and friends, may have been one of the toughest things to leave behind when you went to college. Adjusting to college courses was hard, but it was also difficult to live in a new dorm, eat in a new place and meet new friends. You normally would go to the refrigerator for a midnight snack, but now, you just went to your closet and get a box of Pop Tarts from a crate. Instead of tripping over your dog in the dark, you fell over your roommate. So, as part of being a college student, you needed to be flexible.

Lines were a typical sight and a big part of ASU. The transition to college was often made easier when students were willing to adapt to changes. Students needed to be willing to accept a completely new lifestyle, because almost everything changed. Since most young adults left home for the first time to go to college, they were more prone to being homesick for the first few months. As the semester passed, the more comfortable the freshman usually got with their new-found freedom. This freedom included eating as much as you wanted, when you wanted, and it also meant staying out late with no curfews. Also, your parents no longer had to of who you brought home or what you were doing once you were home. " The freedom to do what I want was the hardest thing to adjust to when I left for college, " said Jonathan Gilcrease, a history major. " Living away from home made me budget my time differently, because I wanted to have time for both school and pleasure. " " This new freedom gave me control of myself and I did not have to depend on anyone else, " he added. Leaving home created more responsibility, because until the time students left home, they could usually depend on their parents for most expenses and food. Staying away from home around the holidays also upset some freshmen and transfer students, but many had the opportunity to go home during the holidays. Although there were some things that made adjusting easier, most students just had to help themselves. on page 206 Scott Burgus Scott Burgus Pointing the way to the Noble Library, Perry Parmely assists Nikki Zambo. The maps on campus helped students to adjust to ASU ' s large size. Continued page 205 Joining an organization during the freshman year also made adjusting to the campus less stressful, because students could try to meet new people and walk around the campus to see where classrooms would be. Meeting new people was possible when students joined a group or applied for a dorm. In a dorm, a student would have a roommate and perhaps, suitemates. Staying in the dorms may have made adjusting a little easier, because the dorms were near the campus and there were many other students from out-of-town who lived there. However, dorm life could also make students want to go back home when the halls had fire drills at one in the morning. " My teachers did help me adjust to student life more, " Gilcrease said. " They emphasized attending class, but they did not force us like in high school. " On campus, students could often eat or sleep in the classroom and the teachers sometimes did not place much importance on those students, because in the long run, they felt they would suffer. " Teachers are more lenient and open- minded, which makes you enthusiastic about attending class and doing well on the Gilcrease said. Adjusting to a new environment was not as difficult if you were willing to sight-see. Going to area clubs on the weekends made time go by faster. Students may have even spent a lot of their time on ASU ' s campus. They studied on the West Lawn, ate at the various restaurants in the Memorial Union, including McDonald ' s, and they could even see a free concert once in a while on Palo Verde Beach. The Student Recreation Complex also provided time for fun. If students did not want to adjust by staying on campus, they could go out to the malls. Mill Avenue gave students something to do by browsing in the windows of the shops or dancing at Club UM. They could also sit outside at the Coffee Plantation. The Cornerstone also had entertainment for ASU students. In the evenings, they went to see comedians at the Improv or they shopped at the popular store, the GAP. Fiesta, Los Arcos and Superstition Springs Malls were all close to the ASU campus. Los Arcos Mall even provided a shuttle bus to and from campus for students wanting to go. The adjustment to college life could often be made easier by keeping busy and finding a new routine that you could live with. It would always difficult to leave family and friends. It would also be different for students to eat cafeteria food from the dorms instead of Mom ' s famous meat loaf, living in a room the size of your closet back home, and just adjusting to the lecture halls that were made for all-school assemblies in high school.

Balcena had been dancing for nineteen years, has a B.A. from Juilliard, an M.A. from UCLA and experience on and off Broadway. He was studying to receive his terminal degree at ASU. He has taught dance since 1978. " I ' ve fallen into a respect for the art (of dance), " he said. " It ' s a serious profession for me. " Balcena trained everyday, explaining that " Dancing is like anything else, " he said. " Our body is our instrument. " He also explained why he has devoted his life to dance. " I just have to, " he said. " It ' s like I ' m obsessed with it. There ' s a passion that goes With it. " Balcena also said one of his goals was " to be able to stimulate people into having a for the art. " Kamala Boeck, a 23-year-old theater major, was studying for an M.F.A. in what was called " theater for children and youth. " Boeck said she eventually wants to be an artistic director, which coordinates the artistic aspects of a production company and a show. on page 212 Stapling parts for the play Tropicana, Jeffery Dick builds the framework for the background mask. Theater students were required to spend time in the scene shop in order to graduate. Scott Burgus Continued from page 211 Boeck said she began acting when she was 12. While in college, Boeck discovered that she " just loved working with children and performing for them and I just decided to pursue it, " she said. Boeck said her parents were one source of inspiration. " Definitely my parents have always been there to support me, " she added. Boeck has another goal as well. " Ultimately, I ' d like to have my own improvisational group, " she said. Boeck wanted to remain in theater, though, because it was her " first love. " Boeck said that success in her field " could be considered the merit of the work, " that people would leave the show, finding it great to watch, recognizing it wasn ' t just a children ' s show, and remember it for a long time to come. Boeck does not contemplate failure. " That ' s not a consideration, " she said. I ' m set on this and I ' m determined to do it. " Boeck said she considers herself a preservationist. " She said that the now is for older audiences, and that if it continues, the theater will die. " That would be a huge loss, " she said. Boeck believes that by having a children ' s theater, it ensures an audience later on. " It ' s (theater) been around since the of time and to let it disappear would be a great tragedy, " she said. Obviously, theater means a great deal to Boeck. She explained why she devoted her life to theater. " It is me, " she said. " It is a part of my life. " Kim Anton was a 22-year-old theater major. Anton wanted to act with her theater degree, and said she wanted to act her whole life. Anton said how she got started in acting. " I think it ' s one of those things that ' s stamped on your head your whole life, " she said. Anton cited Jessica Lange, an actress in such films as " Tootsie " and " Music Box, " as one of her inspirations. " She ' s just one of my most admired actresses, " Anton said. Anton said one of her goals would be playwriting, and that she has already started Scott Butgus Refining a step for an upcoming concert, Antony Balcena shows ' Vermont " Ken Nosek, Craig Rogers, Catherine Schaeffer and Kelly Roth where to direct their focus.

Anton said that success to her was " just as long as I ' m always working. " She said not succeeding is something she doesn ' t think about. " I really don ' t think about it as a possibility. " Anton also explained why she was spending her life acting. " I don ' t know how anybody wouldn ' t want to do it. I ' ve always had that perspective.

As the female chairperson in charge of the it was her job to work with the of each team, as well as with the technical crew at Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium. She also shared the responsibility of choosing the theme and critiquing the acts. Wadsworth said she had had an interest in the show ever since she was a freshman. " I saw Greek Sing then and I loved it, " she said. " I wanted to do it, be a part of it ever since. " The year before, Wadsworth saw what the female chairperson had to do to make the production a success. " I saw how much fun and interesting it looke d, " she said. " It was something that I wanted to try and do. Being a chairperson is definitely worth it. " greek Sing was a musical production of several different shows all performed by members of ASU ' s greek community. Did it sound like an easy task? One of last year ' s co- chairpeople, Allison Wadsworth, a member of Pi Beta Phi, said that the production took a great deal of time and dedication. Wadsworth said she loved being in charge of Greek Sing, even though it took about six months to put the performance together. The process started last October when the staff for Greek Sing was picked; then began for the performance in April. Each show was acted out by four houses, two sororities and two fraternities. They were allowed to do any type of show that pertained to the theme for that year. As a chairperson, one of Wadworth ' s duties was to organize the teams. She also previewed each show before the John Harmin, a member of Pi Kappa Epsilon, was the other co-chairperson. Wadsworth said she was grateful to share the job with a partner. " They picked one female and one male for the job, " she said. " John did so much, he was a tremendous help in putting it all together. " Wadsworth said that she was satisfied with the final outcome of the show, although she would have made a few changes. " I liked it, but if I could change a couple of things, I probably would have, " she said. " There are always going to be a few things that you ' re dissatisfied with.

Shedding Some Work, School and Play the Mia Gaut playing a game of volleyball, three members of ATA enjoy the Arizona summer. Students found the time to relax in between their summer school classes and their work schedules. Shedding Some any different people from all over the world came to school at ASU, but when they weren ' t here in Arizona studying during the school year, they spent their summers keeping busy at work and at play. " I got the best of the sun while earning money for school, " April Martin said. Martin was an Alpha Delta Pi pledge who taught private swimming lessons all summer. " I enjoyed knowing that when the kids had completed the course, that they were pool safe, " she said. John Pinkus, an Epsilon Pi, worked for an accounting firm belonging to his girlfriend ' s father. " I thought that it was interesting and I would love to do it again, " he said. Many students found the summer vacations to be a time to get ahead in their schoolwork. Heidi Jargin, an incoming freshman and Alpha Delta Pi pledge, took English 101 over the summer before she started full-time. " I wanted to get some credits out of the way so I wouldn ' t have such a heavy load the first semester in college, " she said. Many other students found jobs that were related to helping them get ahead in their majors. Students who knew what their career would be landed jobs in the same field. Sigma Nu Ginno Dicaro spent his summer in California, working for his father ' s law firm. " I want to be a lawyer, so this job really gave me some great experience, " he said. " It was a lot of fun, too. " the last of the summertime rays, KAO Alison Gato and Jennifer Bruzzano take advantage of a free afternoon. Tanning was a popular spare time activity among students.

Phi Sigma Kappa member Dave Grear thought that it did and took action. For the past two summers, Grear worked in Critter Country in Disneyland. " Bear Country was the easiest because I would just tell people where to take a seat, turn off and on the machine and sit back and watch the show, " Grear said. Grear said working with so many people and dealing with customers contributed to an enjoyable Disneyland experience. " The reason I kept going back was because I loved working with my age, and that ' s a big benefit, " he said. " I had a lot of fun working there.

Shedding Some you talked to some girls before they went you that it was something about tea parties and through sorority rush, they might have told being proper. That was what many of last year ' s rushees said they thought they would be going into, but were astonished to find hundreds of girls yelling cheers and chants as they walked in. " I thought that rush would be a lot different, " Marni Bloom said. " I didn ' t know what to expect from it all. " Bloom was a rushee who pledged Delta Delta Delta. Fraternity rush was much more informal than the women ' s rush. Men could attend any house ' s functions. Each fraternity planned activities, such as going tubing or out to dinner, while others just hung out at the house ' s pool. " Motivation and a chance to meet people, which is important as a freshman, is what convinced me to rush, " said Ryan Pratt, a Delta Sigma pledge. Rush gave students an opportunity to examine each house and determine which one was right for them. " I chose the house that I ' m in because when I went through their party, the girls were very diverse, " Bloom said. " That ' s what I liked, they didn ' t all look alike. " First impressions of any house was usually what rushees said they remembered. " I started with an idea of which house I wanted, " said Sigma Nu pledge Rick Romes. " I went to their first function and I knew that they were for me. " Henri Cohen back at Greek Games event, a member of Delta Gamma and a friend enjoy watching the sun go down.

It wasn ' t until she was registering for classes that she decided to go through sorority rush. " I wasn ' t going to go through with it at first, then I convinced my sister to go through it at her college, " she said. " I wanted to meet a lot of new people, and I knew that rush would be a great way to get that head start. " Jackson said that al- though she didn ' t know what was in store for her when the week started, she found that rush could be stressful and " If I didn ' t make it into one (sorority) this time, I probably would go through rush again the results are rewarding, " she said. Jill A. Harnisch If you were a member of a sorority, you may have found many advantages to living in PV Main. Marcie Meyers, a member of Chi Omega, loved living " on the floor " much better than off-campus. " Living on the floor definitely has its advantages, " she said. " It ' s to classes, there are always lots of people around to talk to, and there ' s always something to do. " The rooms were made for two people and had suite-style bathrooms, but many, like Meyers, had their own rooms. She said she saw many advantages to living in a room by " I don ' t have a roommate, so I don ' t have to deal with fighting over things or becoming too close to an individual, " she said. " But PV Main brings all the sororities closer since we are all housed so near each other.

Sororities benefited from one by sharing the same floor and eating together. a whole neighborhood of girls, " Kappa Kappa Gamma Sheri Lauderback said, referring to life in Palo Verde Main. PV Main was the housing set aside for sororities. Most sororities had rules requiring its members to live on the sorority ' s floor at some time during their stay at ASU, with rules from house to house. Some houses required two years, while others required one year; some chapters even let women go through four years of school ever having to live on the floor. " This is my second semester and every girl in my house is required to live here for two years, " Lauderback said. There were certain rules set by each floor to keep order and insure that certain " housekeeping " tasks were performed throughout the semester. " The house manager assigns duties, " Pi Beta Phi Keira Gudnarson said. " Each girl gets a job to do during the semester, whether it ' s cleaning the kitchen, straightening up the chapter room or making sure the study room is clean. " Each floor voted for their own quiet hours or study hours. " Quiet hours are nine at night to ten in the morning during the week and that is used for study hours, plus we have a special room to study in if you need it, " Lauderback said. PV Main brought all the sororities together because they shared a cafeteria and, usually, the same floor. " Living here gives you the benefit of getting to know other girls that you might not have met otherwise, " Lauderback said. in some study time in Robin Levine ' s room on the floor, Bonnie Lyons and Hillary Syms cram for a test.

If you ' ve ever told one, you may have contributed to Greek stereotyping on campus. Kathie Lentz, a member of Alpha Phi sorority, said she thought most stereotypes came from ignorance. " People who aren ' t in the Greek system stereotype Greeks because they think they ' re snobs, but they just don ' t it, " she said. " They think we ' re too good for them. " She added her sorority tried to get involved in all areas of campus life. " We try to keep a positive image and get involved on campus, " she said. " We try to let others know what we ' re all about and that we ' re not just involved in the Greek Ignorance Leads to STEREOTYPES By Kim Kaan nfortunately, many people women of sororities as stupid blondes who dress and think alike, " Alpha Gamma Delta member Tina Eddy said. Another stereotype that may have been heard was that the only activity sororities were involved in was partying. Tim Hughes, a of Lambda Chi Alpha, said he felt the party aspect of Greek life was minimal. " Only 10 percent of Greek activity is social, " he said. " Greeks also participate in philanthropic, intramural, ritual, and studying activities. " Eddy said she felt that sororities coped with stereotypical attitudes through support from each other. " We care about what people outside the Greek system think, but at the same time, we know that our group does more than just socialize, " she said. Another typical attitude that may have been given to both fraternities and sororities was that members somehow " paid " for friends. Hughes disagreed with that statement. " Having friends in my house has enabled me to establish a type of networking system, " he said. " Perhaps an older member has taken courses that I am currently enrolled in; he can then help tutor me at no cost. Members of the Greek system said it built leadership in its members. " In fact, " Hughes said. " Seventy-five to 80 percent of the leaders on ASU ' s campus are Greek-affiliated. " down at the house, two fraternity display the typical " Greek stereotype. Some Greeks feel they are unjustly stereotyped as socialites.

Joel was a freshman and maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout the school year. " It really meant a lot to me, " he said. " I worked hard and it was nice to be recognized. " Joel thought that it would be nice to win it again this coming year but it is likely that a would win it again.

The Dekes received their first place awards for chapter improvement and community service and second place for best scholarship. The Dekes also earned second place for the Lion Trophy, which was an all-around award for the best in North America. " These awards really mean a lot to us, " Deke Bill Kavan said. " They probably stimulated our brotherhood into doing more this year. " For the improvement award, they worked on alumni relations, getting out newsletters on the new house and getting their committees together. For the community award, a private blood drive was held and the Dekes also helped with Special and YMCA soccer teams. The Dekes also gave their time last year on designated Saturdays when they participated in a food share program, giving out food to underprivileged people. Kavan said he hoped the chapter would do as well the next year. " We could be one of the few chapters that repeat years on awards, " he said. " Plus, with a new house for us, we are really excited.

Hayden Hauser From the Past to Kristina ByBee Thirty years ago, before Sun Devil Stadium rose high from the foot of Tempe Butte, ground breaking began for the of the houses that became " New Row. " The fraternity houses were financed with bonds and with the understanding that the fraternities would make monthly payments on a forty-year lease from the university. Those students living on New Row had other concerns than its future, but Don Dotts, executive director of the Alumni said that this time was insubstantial. " Ten years is not a long time in the history of an institution like Arizona State, " he said. The leases called for the fraternities to take over the management ofthe properties in 2002. Phi Sigma Kappa President Jesse Finlayson expressed concern over the possible elimination of both Old and New Rows. " I have seen a master plan that was on display in Hayden Library that showed a master complex that would be completed by 2010 and house all he said. Finlayson said he believed that if the university did build such a residence hall, his fraternity would choose to move to an off-campus house. Hersh explained that the ' master plan ' Finlayson spoke of was the result of a land-use study and included five phases, of which only one, the Sonora Center, had been completed. " There will need to be a lot of funding (to complete the project), " she said. from class, s Bret MacLaughlin and Patrick Vance return home to study.

Vicki Hersh, Greek Life Coordinator, realized the future of New Row was of concern to many fraternity members. She explained that ASU had a five-year plan that involved changes to be made with New Row, but she said she believed that financial limitations would stall the completion of the project. " (With) the five-year plan... if we had all the money in the world, we would see an all-new campus, " she said. " As it is now, there are no plans for New Row.

Tom Hershey Shedding Some that ranged from going miniature golf- ing to dancing the night away to drinking beer by the keg? It was the Greek social scene at ASU. The entertainment during the week usually consisted of going to happy hours. One or two fraternities met a couple of and socialized at a local bar or restaurant. " Happy hours are a great way to meet people, " Kim Foti said. " It is a break during the week to just relax and enjoy yourself. " On the weekends, if a fraternity and sorority didn ' t have an exchange, members could be seen dancing the night away at a popular hangout like Club Rio or Anderson ' s Fifth Estate. Entertainment for those who didn ' t care to dance could be found at the local bars. Most of the bars only admitted patrons who were twenty-one and older, which limited many Greeks from going. " On some nights it is easy to get in but other nights the bouncers are really tough, " Foti said. When the Greeks did have an exchange, it would be held at a fraternity house. Each exchange had a theme, ranging from gangsters, barn dances, fiestas to Hawaiian parties.

" Zeta Beta Tau had been on campus for a year completing the required probationary period before being recognized as an official chapter by the Intra-Fraternity Council. ZBT had been an chapter at ASU about 20 years ago and was trying to make a comeback on campus. Jeffrey Blanchfield, a member of ZBT, said that it wasn ' t easy to become an official chapter. " It ' s hard getting the name recognized on campus as a fraternity willing to do what is needed in the Greek system, " he said. ZBT completed the requirements to become an official chapter in 1991, and were looking for a permanent house for the fraternity. Official Chapters: What it Takes to PASS THE TEST By Kim Kaan you ever wondered what fraternities and sororities went through to become official chapters? Don Shilliday, educational director for the Inter-Fraternity Council and member of Kappa Sigma, said there were several steps to complete. First, a potential needed men or women and a faculty member who were willing to start a chapter. Then the group would petition an expansion committee to show that they had complied with all rules and to that point. Those rules included dedicating time to intramural, social and philanthropic activities, having a certain number of members and meeting the time deadline for all this. After gaining approval, the fraternity chapters were admitted under conditional status for one year. If, after a year, the group was progressing, they would be given full voting rights with the IFC. Tina Eddy, the vice president of membership for the Panhellenic Council, said that for sororities, most of the requirements were the same. " I don ' t think that it ' s harder than it is just different requirements, " she said. She said that potential sororities would be recognized by Panhellenic, rather than having to complete a probationary period. " The biggest difference between the fraternities and the sororities is that sororities get recognized as official chapters immediately, whereas fraternities are put in conditionally a year, " she said. the Barbra Erni and Dena Gibert agree on the next step to take in their bylaws. Sigma Delta Tau was a sorority that joined the Greek system in the fall.

Sororities did not have to complete a trial period like the fraternities. Some Hayden Houser Craig Valenzuela A busy schedule was not uncommon for junior Alex Bouzari, a foreign exchange student from Italy. He was a member of the Delta Chi as well as an ASASU senator. " There ' s a lot of encouragement in the greek system to get involved and lead activities at ASU, " Bouzari said. Bouzari said that sometimes running for the same office against a fraternity brother could at times create tension. It was, however, was expected, and after the elections, everything was back to normal. " In general, the Greek system creates a lot of social as well as opportunities, " he said. " Both give people the opportunity to make friends and to have an important role at ASU. " Greeks Find Their Own Place IN THE LIMELIGHT By Joey Fox many students, attending classes and a few social gatherings was the extent of their activity at ASU. However, for other students, going to class was just a small part of their involvement. Junior Amy Golden, a member of Chi Omega and Activities Vice President of ASASU, said that the Greek system was a good way to get involved on campus. " There exists a lot of support and positive competition within the Greek system, which causes a lot of students who would not otherwise get involved to go for it, " Golden said. Freshman Kathy Zimmerman, a Chi Omega pledge and member of the badminton team agreed. " The competition within the sorority and among (different) sororities helps inspire the greeks to get involved and give their all to the activities in which they are involved, " Zimmerman said. Golden said that being involved did take a lot of time, yet many of those involved wanted to keep busy. However, junior Emily Rhodes, a Chi Omega and member of the track and cross country teams, said that in order to be successfully involved, an individual must have been able to manage their time well and to take care of school before other activities. Zimmerman agreed with Rhodes, saying that it was possible to become " too involved " . " It ' s difficult to be in so many activities and not lose (your) sanity, " Zimmerman said. collaberating on a letter with ASASU president Gregory Mecham, Alex Bouzari decides on budget figures.

Howell ' s fraternity brother, John Clark, said that he and Howell had to go through a lot of red tape and precautions to make the bachelor auction happen.

" It couldn ' t have gone better, " Howell said. After the auction, the fraternity threw a party that was attended by the participating sororities as well as members of various other fraternities.

" We all like to know the satisfaction of making a child feel really special. " The members of Sigma Nu contributed much of their time and energy to children ' s charities as well. John Clark, an active member, said that one of the charitable programs his fraternity supported was " Arizona Ranch. " " It ' s basically to help young kids with problems, " Clark said. " We play around with them and give them a tour of ASU They ' re so used to being disciplined that they look forward to it as a privilege.

Ellswig had just attended the Pi Beta Phi pledge presents formal and said he was impressed by the planning that went into it. Ellswig, a Sigma Nu pledge, said he thought his experience with Greek formals was both valuable and fun. " I met a lot of new and interesting people from other fraternities and sororities, " he said. " When you go into something with a positive attitude, it usually turns out the way you think it will. " He said the fact that he went to the formal with his steady girlfriend, Blake Freeman, instead of a stranger may have had something to do with the " excellent " time he had. " Formals rage!

It was a common sight to see many Greeks leaving therir houses or residence halls in formal wear and zooming off to a hotel in a limousine for yet another formal. To many Greeks, however, formals were more than just another party. They were social customs that many greeks took very seriously. Erin Peterson of Gamma Delta said she loved to go to formals to " bond " with her sisters. " The sisterhood and friendships are just so strong there, " she said. " I also like to see the pledges get all excited because it ' s usually their first formal. " Peterson said she found that it didn ' t really matter who you went to the dance with. " Even if you have a horrible time with your date, you can kick back with your friends, " she said. David Hopkins also said formals were great places to " do some serious bonding.

" We have a couple of artists in the house who make up the design, " he said. " We can decide on exactly the way we want it to look. " he painting on New Row represented much more than just the fraternities on that street. It served as a reminder for members of their heritage and loyalty. Ton Bothmann, a Phi Kappa Alpha pledge, said his house painted their section of the row at least twice a year. " It ' s a tradition, " Bothmann said. " We ' d never change it. " Part of that tradition had been to keep the fraternity ' s colors and logo the same each time it was painted. " We always paint it maroon and gold, " he said.

Community service projects were being done by fraternities and sororities. Sigma Chi fraternity had taken on a project called to reduce litter along Arizona ' s highways and to encourage motor- ists not to litter. For one mile along 10, the men of Sigma Chi participated in this non-profit service. " We want to call people ' s attention, " Sigma Chi Jason Baehr said. " We put up a sign along our section, and it tells our purpose along with our fraternity ' s name. " Kappa Alpha fraternity resumed a philanthropic program that they started last year called " Guadalupe Project. " Last year they raised over $10,000 working with " Head Start " at Christmas-time to collect toys, food and clothes for the families. " We meet the needs of about 10 families and make sure that we maintain confidentiality when we give them their goods, " Kappa Alpha Rob Miller said. " We did this project because our house wanted to have a different kind of philanthropy than contests or fundraisers. We just didn ' t want to raise money, send a check to some place and have that be the end. The feeling is inspiring and great after we do this much help for others in need. " Scott Burgus a breathalizer test, Chris Weber realizes that he is over the legal limit. Chi Omega ' s Oktoberfest was just one Greek event used to help students.

When asked what it meant to him he joked at first, but then was serious. " It ' s grueling hard work for hours in sun, " he said. Wehmueller said that their participation could help dispel any Greek stereotypes. " It shows to everyone who drives by that we care about more than just parties or our social lives, " he said. The work was sometimes hard, combing the highway for a mile at a time to pick up any litter. " We get to wear the bright orange reflectors and the supervisor is there to make sure that none of us throw ourselves out into the traffic, " Wehmueller said. Governing Boards Take an some general business, members of the Greek Review Board talk about the latest Greek events. The board acted as a liason between Greek students and the school adminitration. Scott Burgus SU ' s two Greek governing boards practiced a new way of controlling the greek system by putting a more " active stance " into effect. Instead of putting offenders on they tried to use education to reform offenders. Vicki Hersh, Greek Life Coordinator, said that the Order of Alpha (Panhellenic governing board) got started in 1989, and was still evolving. She said it concentrated on educating members, educating house and reviewing cases and infractions. Michael Tomkins of the Greek Review Board said his governing body was created as a liaison between the school and the greek system, allowing them to take care of problems themselves. Both Hersh and Tomkins felt that this system of governing was more effective. " I think it ' s rather unique, " Hersh said. " Each group selects their own representative and supports their own person. " " We try to educate a house on why the action was wrong and how they can prevent the problem in the future, " Tomkins said. " It ' s funny because people sometimes look at us as a police force. " eeting in the MU, the GRB tries to solve any problems that may arise ' n the Greek system. The board, along with the order of Alpha, also tried to use education to reform offenders. Photo by Nikk Julien Scott Michael Tomkins, a member of the Greek Review Board, felt that the new " pro-active stance " the body had " mixed results. " " You can only educate so much, " said Tomkins. " But we can try to be lenient and give them (the house) a break. " Tomkins said he felt it was unfortunate that houses tried to take advantage of the board. " It ' s a big problem when we just slap one of them on the hand and someone else tries to take advantage, " he said. " It ' s like a domino effect and it brings everyone down. " Tomkins said that the overall purpose of the board was to do what ' s best for " everyone as a whole. " " The last thing we want to do is get a house in trouble, " Tomkins said. " It makes everyone look bad. " BRANDI MASS Scott Burgus The Greek was very large and contained many One of them was the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. " Being an AKA has given me a support that I can fall back on, " Alpha Kappa Alpha Brandi Mass said. Alpha Kappa Alpha was an all-black sorority that strove to be leaders for black women. " We want to display leadership qualities that other black women can utilize, " Mass said. Mass said she felt the black and white Greek systems did not separate themselves; they simply had different interests. She added that her house felt closest to the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. " We pretty much stay within our own circle, that ' s just the way it turned out, " Mass said. Anderson Homing together with 45 groups that stress brotherhood and sisterhood was the overall theme for the Alpha Phi Alphas, Alpha Kappa Alphas and the Phi Beta Sigmas. These three black Greek organizations were striving to be positive role models for other blacks trying to succeed. " The advantages of a black fraternity is we share common backgrounds, common ancestry, and are able to build communities, " Alpha Phi Alpha Greg Williams said. " Our main goal as the men of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity is to prepare men to become leaders in the community and business world, " said. As for the sorority, Alpha Kappa Alphas tried to stress the importance of helping black women successful. " As an AKA I have made friends that I will have for a lifetime, " Alpha Kappa Alpha Brandi Mass said. " Whenever I need something, I know my sisters will help me anyway they can. We have something so very strong that can never be taken away from us. " For Phi Beta Sigmas, helping out and giving back to the community were main goals. As they were not and all black fraternity, they felt strongly about the importance of cultural diversity.

Some one of the most rewarding of the annual Greek Week was its contribution to Camp Sunrise, a small sector of the American Cancer Society in which children with cancer and their siblings attended winter and summer session retreats. Greek Week was a series of events, including such activities as a 5K run, Greek Sing, games, a fashion show and carnival. It acted as a fund raiser for charity and in the past two years has managed to raise over $45,000 for Camp This organization was chosen as the recipient of such a donation because the American Cancer Society (an associate of Camp Sunrise) had " worked so closely with ASU ' s Greek Society in the past, " explained Kristy Shepard, a senior communications major and member of Delta Gamma sorority. She was an active member in organizing the retreat. Eighteen people from various fraternities and sororities at ASU received special training to work as counselors at the three-day winter camp in Payson, Arizona. Shepard explained that it was not quite what she had anticipated. Although some of the children were going through chemotherapy, the majority of them did not appear sick at all. It seemed to be enjoyed by everyone, just like any other camp. " They loved it, " Shepard said. " It ' s a time for them to get away and just be with other kids and have fun. Courtesy of Kristy Shepard watching some of the children canoeing, two of the younger campers cool off by the lake while they wait their turn. Canoeing was just one of the fun activities that the kids at Camp Sunrise had to choose from.

Over $45,000 had been donated to the camp in the last two years. The weekend long winter retreat was held in Payson, Arizona, and proved to be a valuable experience for all those who had the opportunity to Sean O ' Neill, a junior English major, member of Phi Sigma Kappa and publicity co-chair of the event explained how the experience was and not quite what he had expected. " It makes everything more clear...you actually get to see what your cause is for, " he said. " The kids also love the idea of seeing new faces. " Houses Greeks Caruss queezing in a few more minutes on her art history, Megan McGovern takes a few mental notes. Favorite Greek study spots were the house pledge room, dorm rooms and the library. studying for finals... for exams... for quizzes... when will this ever end? When you were involved with the Greek system, things weren ' t any different. There were always tests to study for, exams to stress over and quizzes to pass, until finally that diploma was in your hand! " There are study tables in the Greek houses, but most of the time the guys just get together it they are in the same class and study, " Phi Sigma Kappa Todd Meyer said. " There aren ' t really any set study groups and times because everyone has so many different schedules Meyer, who was a said that he made sure he studied a great deal. " My major is industrial technology so I study six hours a day, " he said. " I ' m a senior and my degree is approximately going to take me five years. " Meyer said that balancing school with being in a fraternity was difficult. " It took a while for me to balance school with everything that goes along with being in a fraternity, " he said. " But you really have to get your priorities straight and realize that you are there for school and your future so it takes a lot of discipline. " Meyer added that being in a fraternity was helpful socially and academically. " I have found a lot of opportunities since I ' ve turned Greek, " he said. " I wouldn ' t trade this for the world, it ' s helped me out immensely! " Jill A. Harnisch 254 GREEK LIFE a little last m inute studying, Jennifer Moon looks over her book.

Many Greek pledges, however, were required to attend study tables as part of their fraternity or sorority ' s pledge " Freshmen need some kind of guidance to get used to some kind of study habits, " Senior Psychology major and Chi Omega Rush Angela Carazo said. " It ' s different than high school. They ' re getting used to being in college and they ' re also doing things together as a pledge class. Carazo said that Chi Omega did not require study tables for active members unless theywere on social probation, but that studying was very important to her and she tried not to allow to get in the way of her education. Scott Burgus Heather Isaacson, a senior biology major and member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, found that home for Christmas meant staying at her parents ' home in Arizona. " Most of my friends went home for she said. Before the sororities brought the semester to a close, however, there were holiday parties to attend. " We usually have a Christmas party where just the girls get together and have a good time, " Isaacson said. Many students took the opportunity given by a long break to visit as well as old friends who had attended other colleges. Isaacson agreed that going home for the holidays was usually appealing. " Everyone pretty much just looks forward to being with family and friends at home, " she said. Caruss any students joined the Greek system as a way to make friends. So, as with most friends, it was often difficult to say at Christmas time. " It was hard to leave for Christmas, " Delta Kappa Epsilon member Bill Kavan said. " I haven ' t been home in a year. I ' m used to being with friends and being far away from home. " There were even fraternity members who stayed in Phoenix over Christmas. " A lot of frats stay here in Phoenix because it ' s to expensive to go home every year, " Kavan said. " I know that from experience, because I ' m from New York. " He pointed out that there were things for them to do while they stayed in Phoenix for the holidays. " There is sort of a substitute family that you can hang out with for the holidays if you can ' t go home, " he said. " That is why joining a fraternity is one of the best things that I have done. The reason is because, I ' m from far away and it was a perfect way in meeting friends and also so have people to be with during the Kavan added that many members of his fraternity liked to return to the Valley and fraternity life long before the break was over. " A lot of us return early to start up the activities again, " he said. " Being in a frat is quite fun.

GREEK LIFE GOING HOME Jill A. Harnisch Jill A. Harnisch JENNIFER BARRETT Not all fraternities and sororities participated in spring rush, but even those who rushed in the fall said it had its advantages. " I rushed in the fall as a freshman because I wanted to get into it right out of high school, " Alpha Phi Jennifer Barrett said. " There are a lot of girls who come in as and transfer students and they don ' t know about rush and then they wish they had. It gives them the opportunity to do it in the spring. " Barrett said that her sorority participated in spring rush and that it was a success for them. " It went pretty smoothly, " she said. " We only had room for a few girls. It wasn ' t as big as fall rush, so we didn ' t do that much with it. " New Faces Arise During Caruss spring rush began in January after all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season was over. Although many rushees chose to do so in the fall, they agreed that spring rush had its advantages as well. " I rushed in the fall, but there really isn ' t that much of a difference, " Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) member Jim Lambert said. " The only thing is, is that you get to check out the houses a lot when you rush in the spring because you get to see more (houses). When you rush in the spring, it is basically finalizing your choice of Greek houses. I chose the fraternity FIJI because there was a strong sense of brotherhood. It was also a small house and that is what I was basically looking for. " Many times, before the actual rushing took place, there was " pre-rush " , where the various fraternities would host social activities and get to know prospective members. " Pre-rush is so fraternities can lure rushees into their houses, " Lambert said. " It consists of a lot of activities that rushees can get involved For non-Greeks, there was often a sense of curiosity concerning rush activities. " They basically take you to all the houses and show you different trophies, " Lambert said. " When this happens you get a feel for the houses and the people. Whatever attracts you the most is what you go for. " oing for a strike, a pledge participates in one of the many Spring Rush activities. Bowling, dinners and trips to the dog tracks were some of the activities that houses used to lure rushees.

Students tried to make their dorm rooms as comfortable as possible so that the small rooms would feel more like a home. Photo by Scott Burgus Marlena Martinez By Marlena Martinez ampus residents had many options when they decided where to live last year. Some had to take into consideration price, size, locations and whether the hall was co-ed. Their final choice affected either an entire semester or year of living. " I wanted something like an apartment, and Cholla was the closest thing to it, " Tracy Hart said. Hart lived in Sahuaro Hall last year and thought that , in comparison, Cholla would have been a better place for them to live. She said she later found that neither hall fulfilled her expectations. " There are better places to live that are worth more than what you ' re getting here (at Cholla), " Hart said. " They could have made it a little nicer. The carpets are all torn up and it kind of smells. " Many students who said they were dissatisfied with their residence hall cited reasons similar to Hart ' s. Several said that the residence halls were too old and uncomfortable. With the opening of the Sonora Center in the fall of 1990, students had another choice when deciding which hall was right for them. The hall was equipped with full kitchens, floor study lounges and laundry rooms. Residents did have to pay more for these extra amenities, but many said it was much nicer than the older rooms on campus. Some common complaints by residents concerned hall maintenance and elevators. " We just fix everything ourselves, " Hart said. " We have maintenance, but it takes them too long to get the job done. " Candy Jiosne, Hart ' s roommate, agreed. " We don ' t take the elevators, " she said. " They just break down whenever they feel like it. " Jiosne and Hart added that the best thing about living at Cholla was its location. Since each hall had different accommodations, each student had to consider personal needs and preferences as a guide when they hunted for dorms. Taking advantage of the lobby, Jennifer Mehall studies for a test. Hall residents studied in the lobbies or lounges to escape the noise in their rooms.

Photo by Scott Burgus Overlooking Apache, The Commons is popular among Many chose The for its close proximity to campus. Walking from one budding to the next, residents use the walkway at The Towers. The Towers was chosen as an alternative to dorms. Photo by Scott Scott Burgus Scott Burgus By Annalisa Hernandez he Towers, the Commons and the apartment complexes housing many students, have often been compared to campus dormitories. The Towers had a more quiet atmosphere. It housed mostly upperclassmen and graduate and did assign rromates. Some of the special features that the Towers provided were a jacuzzi, a sun deck with barbecue grills and a swimming pool. They also provided a floor specifically for law students. The Commons, which also assigned roommates and were furnished, had an atmosphere that was aimed toward underclassmen. The Commons conducted monthly activities. Some of their special features included a swimming pool, volleyball courts and a weight room. The Quadrangles did not assign roommates, but a majority of their residents attended ASU. The residents there ranged from underclassmen to graduate students. Meredith Muller said she wanted something bigger so she switched from Manzanita to the Quadrangles. " The cost is about the same, it ' s pretty equal, " Muller said. " We have everything and living here is totally convenient. It ' s like a dorm, so many of my friends are here. " Margo Flecker moved from PV East to the Commons for more space and privacy. " I have more freedom now and I am not confined to one little room, " Flecker said. Flecker said that having assigned roommates the first year was a good way to meet people. " Living here is more expensive than the dorms but you get what you ' re paying for, " she added. She also said that some of the popular facilities at the Commons are the racquetball courts, volleyball courts, study loft and the swimming pool. " The weight room is not used much since the students go to the SRC, " Flecker said. Relaxing by the pool at the Commons, Lisa E. VanTassel, Kari Sternberg, and Ross Klina catch some rays. The Commons pool was a popular gathering site for students. Photo by Scott Burgus By Kim Kaan by doesn ' t anybody want to live on campus anymore? ASU ' s residence halls were at an all-time low of anticipated hall living, at about 36 percent below capacity, as stated by a university official in the State Press. Since the enrollment was down, the college had to discover new ways to utilize the unoccupied rooms. One such method transformed Saguaro Hall into guest housing. Dawn Ferguson, conference coordinator for Residence Life said that a reason why that type of housing was so beneficial was because it gave freshman a chance to experience dorm living before they made a long-term commitment. Dean Boever, conference director for University Guest Housing, said that he thought the program would benefit Residence Life. " The university guest housing is helping the situation because it ' s a service that we can offer that we couldn ' t before, " he said. " It ' s a step in the right direction for ASU, and it brings in revenue for Residence Life. " Ferguson said she thought there were three factors concerning why there was a lack of residents in the halls. First, she cited a national statistic that the fall of 1991 had been the lowest recorded year of enrolled in universities. Also,out-of-state costs had increased, causing the price of dorm rooms to rise. Finally, area apartment complexes had gotten access to the same mailing labels that Residence Life used, which caused competition between halls and the complexes. Residence Life Director Cliff Osborne said that he thought the hall situation would eventually recover. " Today ' s problem is that out-of-state students are not coming to ASU because of the cost, " he said. " Predictions show that by 1995, additional freshman will be available. " Palo Verde West dorm is vacant for the school year. The entire hall was not open to residents due to asbestos problems. Photo by Scott Burgus 266 McCLINTOCK 2.

" Being of different cultures doesn ' t make it difficult, it actually makes it exciting as well as a learning experience, " Hackienicz said. Both said they have learned a great deal from one another. Anderson emphasized learning more about American customs such as converting money, weight and school. Hackienicz, on the other hand, stressed cultural differences (such as the fact that Sweden only had twenty brands of cereal) and the contrast between post-secondary education in both countries. " They do not have Scantron exams, nor do they have multiple choice exams, " Hackienicz said. " Maria had never taken either type of exam so I had to help her a lot in that aspect. " Anderson said that without Hackienicz ' s help, she would not have been able to progress as well. " Becky has helped me with a lot of things because she knows everything and it is natural for her, " Anderson said. Anderson stressed that attending a university in the United States was very different compared to college life in Sweden. She said that when the people in Sweden went to the university, they would take only the courses they needed for their major. The curriculum was set up in a series of steps. " The grading system is pass, fail and very good, " Anderson said. " So it ' s real strange to me to receive letter grades in my classes. " Hackienicz and Anderson said they got along well with each other. The fact that they were both swimmers helped them a great deal. They studied together, went to practice and socialized with other people on their swim team. " The unity from swimming has really made us very close to one another, " Hackienicz said.

Photo by Scott Burgus By Jennifer DeCarvalho to figure out the mystery meat of the evening and why last night ' s " stew " seemed more like a combination ofleftovers from previous dinners were some common complaints among students living on dorm food. They said that items normally found in cafeterias were either too greasy, too mushy or too unbelievably bland. Thanks to Marriott Food Services, things here were a little different. The normal 10, 14 or 19 meal per week plan, which about half of the twelve dorms required their residents to have, offered a full salad bar with lunch and dinner and a variety of entrees at each meal. The themes varied throughout the week, but a health conscious, lowfat vegtarian option was al- ways available as well. Marriott also offered a Maroon and Gold card that could be purchased with the meal plan or on its own. The card, with cash equivalent value could be used by students in any of the stores or restaurants in the Memorial Union (except McDonald ' s). The MU included such dining facilities as bagel a nd yogurt stands, a bakery, several restaurants and a market. Brett Slavin, a sophomore fine arts major, was pleased with his Maroon and Gold card. " It was great because the cafeterias hours are very limited, " he said. " I could go in, buy all this stuff and bring it home. " Joy Greenberg, a sophomore biology major, recalled her days of eating cafeteria food. " If I ate (cafeteria food), I ' d eat in Manzy , but occasionally tried to avoid it at all costs, " she said. " Yogurt with Lucky Char ms or the salad bar were the safest things there. " Greenberg said jokingly that her Maroon and Gold card was the best thing her parents ever did for her.

" We have no cleaning bills and it takes us about five minutes to clean our room, because we ' re both neat freaks, " Best Hall resident Christina Rivera said. On the other hand, chores could be a burden, especially if your housekeeping habits were different from those of your roommate. An unidentified hall resident said she had that problem quite often. " My roommate is a slob, " she said. " She leaves grease on the phone and she never takes a shower, and to make it worse, she clips her toenails and doesn ' t pick it off the floor! " Sergio Nieto from Hayden Hall said that going from home life to hall life could be a big transition. " I ' m used to my mom doing my laundry, " he said. " Now it ' s my turn, and since I ' m from Yuma I can ' t go home every weekend to beg her to do it. " Cleaning also took time out of the average college student ' s hectic schedule. Rivera said it took at the most a half an hour. " It doesn ' t take us that long because my roommate is hardly here and I mostly just have to pick up after myself, " she said. Best hall resident Benjie Chavez said that he and his roommate did not have to do much in the way of housecleaning. Beth Thomas, a Cholla resident, said that most of the time, chores were done on her own time. " We have such different schedules that it is hard to find time to clean together, so we just clean our own messes up so that there won ' t be such a pile up in the end, " she said. Tim Miller, a resident of Hayden Hall, said that he and his roommate tried to limit all of their cleaning to the weekends. " We do all our cleaning on weekends and if it gets bad during the week days we just try to pick up as much as we can, " he said. Busy doing laundry, Kristy MacDonald and Bryan Hays use the Sonora laundry room. Chores were not among the most enjoyed activities for hall residents.

Every semester resident assistants go out of their way to make the residents feel at home. The RAs put together some sort of social or educational programs to get the residents involved. Some of the many programs that went on throughout the semester covered such broad topics as healthy dieting, relaxation, and self defense. " Posters or by word of mouth is usually how we get the residents to participate, " McClintock RA Amy Rients said. " Healthy dieting was the program that me to come, " Rachel Campos said. " Nutrition is something I care about. " Traci Main, a freshman at McClintock, said she thought that the programs benefitted her socially as well as informed her. " The programs are definitely a good way to meet people and get them out of their rooms, " she said. " McClintock has a lot of really good programs and considering it is an honors dorm, it ' s pretty social. " Shara Ambler, an RA at Sonora, added that the programs helped the residents feel more at home. " The best and most effective way to get the residents to participate is through personal invitation, " she said. Boaz Bell, an RA at Manzanita, said that his hall sponsored both fun and educational programs. " Jeopardy, Buy A Bachelor and intramural sports are some of the social programs that we ' ve had, " he said. " As for educational, we ' ve had programs about AIDS and alcohol awareness. " Bell added that residents were active in the events. " Depending on the event we usually get a good turnout, " he said. " Some of the ways we get residents to participate is by using posters or special displays in the cafeteria. " Pouring a strawberry shake for Traci Main, Hidi Rendahl works in the McClintock cafeteria. Healthy Dieting was one of many hall programs held at McClintock.

" I like dorm living, Manzy ' s got something going on all the time, " Danielle Jenson said. " I like being able to see guys anytime by going to their floor. We don ' t have to walk across campus to meet someone. " Sonora Center, the newest hall on campus, had an apartment-style appearance. The living room and huge bathrooms were what many students said drew them to it. It was also coed. " Sonora is great, the people that I have met work with all come together well, " Piper Sammons said. " We have a pretty good time, even though it is far away from campus. " Sammons was a member of Sonora ' s executive council. Part of her job was to deal with the students ' complaints; she said the biggest was from those who wanted call waiting and cable. Security and study conduciveness played major roles in deciding which hall to live in. Many students weren ' t worried about theft until it actually happened to them. Certain procedures were taken to insure safety. " It is safe and quiet here at East, so that ' s a plus, " said PV East resident Stacey Murphy. " It ' s the safest on campus. " Many students also complained about the shutdowns in the halls. Manzanita cafeteria was closed on the weekends and PV East closed theirs altogether, thus forcing students to walk to PV Main for meals. Some staff members said that this change was due to a decrease in the number of students living in the halls. " I hate eating in Mariposa because Sonora doesn ' t have a cafeteria, " Sammons said. " I like the food in Main four million times better. " Talking on the phone, Robert LeDentu makes plans with his friends. Many students at Sonora had a difficult time dialing out or off campus.

Many said they had to get used to things like getting along with roommates, washing their own clothes and dealing with the hall ' s noise level. Students who lived in the dorms may not only have had a new sense of freedom, but a new responsibility to respect their fellow resident ' s right to peace and quiet. Many students said they felt that the hardest part of living in the residence halls was not being able to study in silence. Justin Norvell, a Manzanita Hall resident, said he found it difficult to study in his room. " It ' s really hard to study, " he said. " People run down the hall screaming and the noise is worse at night. " Norvell described his strategy for escaping the racket as going to study tables for his fraternity. So what did residents do when the noise became intolerable? Ryan Clark, a Sonora Center resident suggested talking to people who had authority in the dorms. " We can talk to the RAs on our floor, " he said. " They have restrictions on how loud you can play music on weeknights. " Norvell added that the RAs at Manzanita didn ' t have much of an influence on floor activities. During the first week of school, many of the dorms made up a charter of rules for each floor. If a student broke any of these rules, they were subject to being written up. Too many write-ups could have resulted in removal from the residence hall. Residents who were kicked out because of discipline problems could not receive a refund of any kind. Some students chose to remove themselves from a disturbing situation by going to special study areas. " I use the study rooms and those are always really quiet, " Clark said. Studying in the lobby at Sonora Center, Janine Bilyand Jessica Baker get away from the noisy rooms. Students found concentrating difficult with all the noise in the hall.

Many students chose to tide their bikes to school to avoid the hassle of traffic. Photo by Tom Hershey Scott Burgus Scott Burgas Scott Burgus TRANSPORTATION Mia Gaut students used different modes of to get to and around the campus. On foot, bike, are, rollerblades, skateboards or bus, students managed to get where they needed to go. When asking people who lived off campus and drove to school they would prefer to carpool, many students agreed that carpooling would be the most economical way. Some students, however, preferred the solitude of driving to school by themselves and said they never considered carpooling. Shayne Murphy, who lived at home in Scottsdale about five minutes away from campus said he liked driving alone. " If I had the chance to carpool, I wouldn ' t because I don ' t like talking in the morning to others, " he said. " I like to be by myself, spending time silence. " Traveling on campus was another story. Which was the easiest, fastest and safest way to get around campus. " I chose to walk as my way of getting around campus, and I thought that it would be safe, but the other day a guy on a bike cut me off and almost hit me, " Demas said. Demas also lived close to campus but chose to try on-campus living. Many students chose to get around school by foot. Some said that they had tried bike riding but it was too crowded and hard to move around others, so they switched to moving around on foot. Although many students voiced complaints that bicycle safety rules were not enforced as rigidly as they felt they should have been, several agreed with the rules. " It doesn ' t bother me to see bike riders on those designated paths, " Murphy said. " You have to look a it from both sides of the issue. If you were in a hurry and needed to get somewhere then a bike would do the job. " Riding his skateboard to class, senior Damon Ribakoff makes record time. Alternatives to walking helped students get around campus quicker. Photo by Tom Hershey By Kielii Anderson ou heard a loud, alarming siren going off like it was implanted in your eardrum. Rubbing your eyes, you stumbled to the door and out onto the lawn below, where everyone else in your dorm was standing like the living dead. You knew the routine: it was another fire drill in the residence halls. " Everyone knows about the fire drills, " Cholla resident Kris Rice said. " Flyers arc posted all around the halls. There is no excuse for people not knowing when the drills are going to take place. " Every semester, there were two fire drills. All dorm residents were required to participate in the drills. " It ' s hard to catch those people who skip out on the fire drills, " Rice said. " It is the state law to know the fire drill procedures. There is a fine if a person is caught not participating in the drill procedures. " Fire drills may sometimes have been disturbing, but they were necessary. If a fire suddenly broke out in a residence hall, the RAs hoped the residents would immediately know what to do. " I think that fire drills are sometimes an inconvenience, but I am glad we have them, " Mariposa resident Kim Bon said. " If there was a fire, I would know how to get out of the residence hall safely. " Numerous stairways in the residence halls were used to exit if a fire happed to break out. " I think it ' s really good to have fire drills, " Cholla resident Kara Jackson said. " In case of a real fire, I hope everybody would act as calm and collected as they do in a fire drill. " Fire drills may have been a pain to many but knowing the procedures of a fire drill was important because one day it may not have been just a drill. " Without fire drills, people could be in a lot of danger, " Jackson said. Checking the emergency evacuation routes, Chris Blinn makes sure that he knows the quickest way out of the dorm.

Photo by Marlena Martinez HORROR STORIES By Jennifer DeCarvalho any freshmen dreamt of going off to college and being matched with the perfect Unfortunately, this vision often crumbled when you discovered the person who had been sentenced to one year was quite different. Perhaps they would rather have conducted science experiments in nuclear physics while your main priority was getting home for Thanksgiving with a killer tan. This may have led to somewhat of a " Revenge of the Nerds " or " Animal House " scenario: t he stuff that made great comedies. Sometimes it wasn ' t so funny thought, especially ifyou were the one living it. Tina Horn, sophomore physical education explained the sharp contrast in what she expected her roommates situation to be like and what actu ally happened. " It wasn ' t what I thought at all, " she said. " I thought we ' d get along great, be best friends, but then we met ... and didn ' t quite hit it off, to say the least. " Many times, students were not stuck living with only one roommate, as most dorms had two rooms with one bathroom between that was shared with " suitemates. " Those people could be a source of relief or even escape from the cramped quarters in which students lived. Horn said she was lucky. " Accepting that these people are just going to be people you fight with is the key,: she said. As far as coed living was concerned, a few different opinions were expressed. After spending only one summer living with her boyfriend, Sarah Smith, a senior education major, strongly advised, " Don ' t ever do it! Not at this age, I mean. " That may have a typical case in terms of romantic relationships, but when the purely platonic is concerned, Michelle Austin, and interior design major, believed that coed was a good option. " I think guy girl roommates work out well, " she said. " I lived with three other guys and they totally respected by personal space. " Misunderstanding her roommate, Jen Yeum explains herself to Annie Hichert. Lack of communication was one of many roommate problems. Photo by Marlena Martinez RESIDENCE LIFE By Kielii Anderson he weekend had finally arrived. It was time to have some fun after counting down the days until Friday. Many students saw the weekends as a time to have fun, relax and do that dreaded studying that may have been put off all week. Usually with little or no transportation, students who lived in residence halls were limited to where they could go on the weekends. Christy Calvin, a who lived in the ChollaApartments, said she had to limit her going out to places that were close. " I do not have a car, so wherever I go it ' s usually on my bicycle or walking distance, " she said. Weekend hangouts included Mill Avenue, Club Rio, house parties, movies, or just hanging out with friends. Most hangouts were within walking distance of the campus. Stacey Wilson, a sophomore living in Cholla, said she was secure knowing she was never far from home. Parties were also hot spots for students. Whether it was a house party, sorority or fraternity party, students would usually find them. " Word travels fast when the word ' party ' is mentioned, " said Matt Klien, an Ocotillo resident. " Usually there is not much to do, so everyone is always looking for a party. " When some hall residents were not partying on the weekends, they found themselves studying. " Sometimes it ' s hard to study in the dorms because there are so many distractions like loud music or a party in another room, " Calvin said. " I usually do most of my studying at the library. " Many students found themselves participating in another weekend pastime: doing that two-week- old laundry that may have piled up. Hall residents who could not retreat to home used hall washers or a laundromat. " I don ' t like using the hall washers, " Wilson said. " I usually to to the laundromat, it ' s less crowded than the dorms. " Studying in the library, students escape the noise in the dorms. Students complained because of the many distractions in the residence halls. Photo by Scott Burgus Many students flock to the football games as one of their weekend activities. Students also passed the time on weekends by going to dance clubs or parties. Partying at Cannery Row, Ron Koch and Jodi Anderson take a break from their busy schedules.

Tom Hershey Tom Hershey Scott SECURITY STUDENTS ARE BETTER SAFE By Mia Gaut ife in a residence hall was often full of parties, good times and new friends, but there was a serious side: safety. Most everyone was aware of the incidence of crime that happened at many universities, but what about ASU? " ASU is a beautiful campus, " Campus Police Sergeant Bill Wright said. " If there is graffiti on the wall, it is cleaned up. If there is a drunk laying on the ground, they are picked up. The atmosphere is not one of crime, so people tend to have a false sense of security. " This false sense of security could have led to many dangerous things, such as propping doors open, alone or leaving one ' s room opened. Wright said that students had to overcome that false sense of security in order to remain safe. He added that the key to a sense of real security came from awareness. " There has to be an awareness that ASU is not closed to criminals, " he said. " In fact, it is a target. " He added that the university employed private security guards for residence halls. " The guards have a direct radio communication with the campus police, " he said. " If anything is wrong in the halls, they will call in and a police officer will be there immediately. " The guards in the halls may have added to that sense of security. Leslie Dickenson, a resident of Best Hall, said that she felt the hall benefited from the presence of the guards. " I feel very secure because of the rules of not propping doors and of escorting people down the hallway, " she said. " Also, knowing that the guards are right outside is helpful. " Wright said he felt that if students knew about being safe and looked to campus police for protection, many occurrences of crime could be avoided. Waiting outside for a friend, a McClintock resident props the door open with a rug so he can get back in. Many students would forget to replace the rug which allowed unwanted visitors to enter. Photo by Nikk Julien By Damian Gomez onsidering the various ways parents could raise their children, some were bound to have trouble adapting to life in a residence hall. Sohail Malik, a junior, used to live in Sahuaro Hall. Originally from Pakistan, Malik found dorm life a fearful adventure, unlike any experience he had ever had. " When I came from Pakistan I did not know anything about drunk people, or how to deal with them, " Malik said. Socially, Malik said he eventually learned to adapt, but other things were harder to get used to. He said that the sizes of the rooms were much smaller than he had expected, and that this from his need for privacy. " The rooms were like pigeon boxes, " he said. " The walls were so thin you could the guy in the next room whisper. There was very little or no privacy. A sophomore from Best " B " who asked to anonymous explained how she and her learned to adjust to unique situations. " My roommate and her boyfriend were having sex in the room, " she said. " I would constantly walk in on them. It was very embarrassing . She eventually learned to leave signs, or notes on the door to warn me, but I still had to wait to get into my own room. " She also said she feared the resident (RAs.) " We always worried about the RAs, " she said. " We couldn ' t laugh too loud or make noise. We were always being policed. " Many students said they were also scared by the infamous Manzanita elevators. Micah McLaughlin, a freshman business and marketing major, said that the elevators were quite unpredict able. " Those things scared me to death, " McLaughlin said. " They would be going just fine, then suddenly stop between floors. I hated when that happened. " Crouching in fear in the corner, freshman Mark Louvianx panics after an elevator in Manzan ita breaks down. Many students were scared by the elevators which sometimes just stopped between floors.

Photo by Tom Hershey FOREIGN RESIDENTS OTHER STATE Ate Nikk Julien By Annalisa Hernandez money! Money! Money! Two of the problems that many out-of-state residents experienced were lack of money and high prices. Tina Renata Beatini, a freshman music major from Connecticut, said that, with her music the cost of attending ASU was less than going to school in Connecticut. " Arizona is beautiful, " she said. " The weather is great and the people are friendly. I also like the music program, it ' s one of the best. She said that being away from home had made her more independent. " I would rather have an apartment for more privacy and space, " Beatini said. Lisa Gelb, a freshman from California, decided to go to ASU because it was not too far from her home. " I can go home when ever I want, " Gelb said. On top of having more privacy, Gelb said that living away from home made her rely more on herself than on her parents. " Sometimes I get homesick and when I do I call home, " she said. " Being away form home has made me more independent. " LoraLynn Hardy, a freshman psychology major from Minnesota, said that she had experienced some problems as an out-of-state resident. Tuition and switching banks were some of the problems she faced. After visiting a friend in Arizona, Hardy said she grew to like the area and the weather. " I like the university a lot, " she said. " It ' s really compact and easy to get around. " Hardy said that the best thing about living away from home was the freedom it brought. " I have more freedom being away from home, " she said. " I ' m on my own and more laid back here. " Calling her family long distance Mellisa Borsari, freshmen business major, discusses her classes. One way many out-of-state residents dealt with home sickness was to call home. Photo by Nikk Julien By Jennifer DeCarvalho aking care of business was the motto for all Residence Assistants (RAs). " This job is important to me because I feel if I can make a turning point in someone ' s life and motivate them, then I have done my job. " Ocotillo RA Tanya Schornack said. The RAs went through a pre-training session which gave them information about what might happen to them on the job. After that there was more training called " Behind Closed Doors " , preparing RAs for things such as suicides, roommate problems and racial tensions. " Being an RA can be quite stressful at times, but when you learn to balance things a little bit, it ' s good fun, " Schornack said. To be an RA one had to be quite motivated when considering taking the job. " Ifyou don ' t care about people don ' t do it, it doesn ' t overwhelm me personally because I care so much about people. " Ocotillo RA Curtis Lange said. Lange said the reason why many RAs loved their jobs so much was because of their influence. " We have an impact on people ' s lives, " he said. " We can be informative and tell them where resources on campus are and how to get involved with clubs. It is also nice to see people that can resolve their problems. " Lange said his scariest episode was an attempted suicide by one of the residents. " It was a lesson for all of us it turned out that everyone was really caring and that person was not alone, " he said. A bit of encouragement and the promise of an eventful year may have motivated other people to become an RA. " If you want to be an RA go for it! " Schornack said. " It is a life long lasting experience. You learn values and how to have an open mind. Most importantly, you learn everything about how to get along with people. " Meeting to discuss upcoming events, resident assistants meet with Assistant Director Deborah Seller and Hall Director Betty Dye. RAs had to deal with a variety of problems in the residence halls.

Marlena Martinez Nikk Julien MAINTENANCE many students may have dreaded cleaning their room in the residence hall, but what if they were responsible for the upkeep of 158 buildings? That was what the 250 custodians, 150 groundskeepers and 200 people working in trades had to do year-round. " There is a lot to do, I have lost 30 empl oyees to budget cuts and that makes it tough to maintain the University ' s standards, " Director of Facilities Management Val Peterson said. Peterson added that funding mainly came from the State Appropriations Fund and some of it from local generated revenues. " The bulk of the money comes from the state taxes, " Peterson said. " Tuition doesn ' t even put a dent into what needs to be done. " The residence halls, Memorial Union and the stadium were not allowed to have state support. If something should happen, such as a rock ' s being thrown through a window, the repair money came out of the pocket of the person who did it. In the halls, things like vacuming, repainting, light changing and thermostats were a regular occurrence for maintenance. Peterson said that the people who worked in maintenance worked long hours and must have a great deal of training. " For all my employees, their shifts are day, evening and graveyard. Most consist of 10 hours a day, four days a week, " Peterson said. " And you have to have experience in all the fields: maintenance, grounds and trades. " There was also remodeling to be done, which was taken care of by the custodians. " There are a lot of things on this campus that are taken for granted; this includes the work that custodians do, " Peterson said. " If it is fixed, no one worries about it, but if it is broken and not fixed right away, it ' s on everyone ' s mind. " Touching up paint in Best hall, maintenance worker Red Cocarun, puts on some final touches. Maintenance jobs in dorms ranged from electrical to plumming.

Fasten your seat belts! Hold on to your hats! ASU took a rollercoaster ride through wins and losses during the last year in sports. In Sun Devil football, there were great victories such as those over USC and Oklahoma State as well as painful losses to Nebraska and UCLA. There were obstacles of illnesses and injuries that plagued womens basketball, wrestling and baseball. First, the womens basketball team suffered a terrible loss due to Karen O ' Connor ' s injury. Later, wrestling, led by Coach Bobby fell with many injuries as well, placing them a disap po inting 13th in the NCAA Championships. On into the season, the baseball team, coached by Jim Brock, was after Tommy Adams was injured and later kicked off the team. This ended a rather year for the team with a record of 35-27. Despite these obstacles, there were many highlights for ASU sports. The softball team, under Coach Linda Wells, reached its goal of participating in the NCAA Championships, while the mens swimming team had their finest dual meet ever and finished in the top 10. At the same time, the womens swimming team, led by Coach Tim Hill, went to the NCAA and finished the with 99 single victories. The Sun Devils also repeated a national championship season in archery, winning the U.S. Intercollegiate Championships. The phrase " growing up together " sparked an experienced mens tennis team, led by Brian Gyetko and Dave Lomicky, to finish with a 21-9 record and a national ranking of No.8. The womens team used 14 different partnerships in doubles play, resulting in a 51-19 match record. The team, led by Coach Sheila McInerney, was faced with the issue of consistency going into their seventh consecutive winning Coach John Spini ' s gymnastics team was also going into a season of rebuilding. Later in the season, the womens and mens track teams finished third and fifth in the Pac-10, respectively. By Marlene E. It was over- " the Streak " was finally broken and all of ASU seemed to be reveling in the first football win over the University of Arizona Wildcats in nine years. In a game that seemed to be one-sided, the Sun Devils trounced the Wildcats 37-14. The fans released what Michael Thompson, a senior computer information systems major and drum major of the Sun Devil Marching Band, called " nine years of frustration. " " It was incredible! " he said. " I was very confident going into this game after having been through the ups and downs in the past. Afterward, it was like, `Yeah! We did it! Conversely, U of A student Greg Berg, a senior classics and anthropology major and Desert yearbook photo editor, said that he felt that ASU would come out of the game with a win. " I wanted us to win, but I had doubts, " he said. " Both teams weren ' t doing too great, and (ASU) had the home court advantage. " Standing in front of the crowd, Sparky celebrates the victory with three minutes left in the game. The fans stormed the field after ASU defeated U ofA for the first time in nine years. Photo by Scott Burgus He added that the fan during the game seemed to be one-sided. " There wasn ' t a lot of U of A support, but the fans were definitely behind ASU, " he said. " It was like the fans from U of A weren ' t even there. From the first score, the place just lit up- it was ASU all the way. " Thompson attributed the UofA fans ' apathy to caring less about football and more about how their basketball team was doing. He added, however, that he felt the AS U-UofA matchup was the highlight of U of A ' s season " This game is all the football season is to them, " he said. " For us, this game has been to us, but we ' ve looked at the bigger picture. The U of A fans tend to seem like football isn ' t as big to them. " Berg said he noticed that there was less booing and chanting things to the fans of the other team last year. " There ' s usually lots of teasing across the stadium, " he said. " For us, it was kind of like, ' In your face, we might as well go home. Thompson said that one of his favorite parts of the game was doing " traveling band, " where band members would play for other areas of the stadium. " So many of the U of A fans were leaving while we were doing traveling band, but the ASU fans that were there were incredible, " he said. " (The U of A fans) got cocky because of the streak and they thought we ' d never get out of it and we Nikk Julien Displaying a homemade sign, students show their feelings toward U of A.

" We just knew in our hearts that they were not going to beat us this year, " Junior Split End Eric Guliford said. After nine long years, Arizona State finally smashed the University of Arizona in total dominating fashion, 37-14. " We ' ve always considered this team as a family, " QB Bret Powers s aid. " We were playing for our family tonight. " The victory insured a season for ASU as well as head coach and team father Larry Marmie, who was later informed that his contract would not be renewed. Marmie had been the first coach since the Darryl Rogers regime to beat a Wildcat team. The Devils were led by a tailback from Tucson who had previously never a loss to the U of A, but 304 nonetheless displayed the same animosity towards the intrastate rival as some of the seniors who were trying to avo id an 0-4 career record against the Wildcats. " We broke it (The Streak), " Mario Bates said, rather " I ' m here at ASU, and you get that kind of attitude. " And that attitude was to demolish the U of A. Bates rushed for 169 yards on 35 carries-almost 20 yards more than the team ' s per game for the year. " I just went out there and played my best, " he said. Powers complimented the running game by completing 13 of 19 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns. He was first touchdown went to Guliford in the first quarter for 24 yards, capping a 5-play, 55- yard drive in two minutes. Although it had gone down in the record books as a 24-yard touchdown pass, Powers rolled to the left and threw against the grain about 45 yards to Guliford who stunned his defender on a nifty inside fake, then went outside, leaving the defensive back on his knees eight yards away. Despite seeing his string of games in which he has caught at least 3 three passes stopped at 13, Guliford finished the season with 55 catches for 801 yards. Powers ' main target of the night was junior tight end Bob Brasher, who caught five passes for 53 yards (both career highs) plus one TD. " Oh, this (victorious) feeling is going to last with me until the day they put me in the grave, " Brasher said. Celebrating after a touchdown, Jean Boyd shows his enthusiasm in the end zone.

" I thought Kurt played extremely well, " head coach Larry Marmie said. The Utes (3-2) held tough throughout the game before to a physically ASU (3-1) team, 21-15. Under Lasher, the Devils played virtually error-free football. He passed for a career-high 204 yards, and led the team to 392 yards in total offense with no turnovers. I didn ' t play an exceptional game, " Lasher said. " But it was good enough for the win. " Freshmen Mario Bates and Derrick Land, both Arizona products, made solid contributions in the fourth quarter to put the the team ahead, 21-7. Land caught a 48-yard pass play to set up Bates ' six-yard scamper into the end zone. " The ball was there (and I) put my hands there and caught it, " Land said. The Devils defense put the game away when junior cornerback Kevin Minniefield intercepted Utah quarterback Frank Dolce late in the game. Coming off a victory over Oregon State, the 4-1 Sun Devils looked to take care of Washington State, a rather gracious whipping boy for ASU in seasons past, up a key Pac-10 matchup with UCLA for the next week. However, something unexpected happened. Washington State (3-4) came to play. The Cougars won,17-3. ASU proved to be gracious hosts as they turned the ball over five times and wasted many opportunities. Junior QB Kurt Lasher, starting in his third straight game, proved to be ineffective, 13 of 33 attempts for 152 yards. " They played a different type of zone defense than we Lasher said. Freshman Torey Hunter of Washington State caught more of Lasher ' s passes than ASU wide receiver Eric Guliford: 3 to 2. " Our job is to keep the other team from scoring more points than us, " junior inside line- backer Brett Wallerstadt said. " We didn ' t do that. " Despite giving up 17 points in the second quarter, the defense again played solid. It was the offense ' s inability to put points on the board that did them in. " I went out there and gave it my best shot, " Lasher said. " Sometimes it just doesn ' t fall your way. " The initial victory song for the football team might have been just a case of modestly blowing its own horn, but the follow-up rendition was a loud and resonant tune that made others sit up and listen. ASU played the Trojans to the tune of a 32-25 shocker on Sept. 21 in which it won a league opener for the first time in six years, broke a seven-game losing streak against Larry Smith- coached teams and impressed enough to skyrocket to 24th in the Associated Press poll. The Sun Devils came out and dominated on offense in the first half, rolling up 308 yards and building a big enough lead to withstand a furious Trojan rally late in the game. " Our defense played pretty bad, and Arizona State did a good job of attacking our weakness on the blitz, " Smith said. " Their quick traps hurt us. The trap was nothing new they were just executing it well. We didn ' t stop them. " Ahead 8-3 on a scoring pass from quarterback Bret Powers to wide receiver Eric Guliford and a 24-yard field goal by Mike Richey, the team faced third and 5 at the Trojan 43. USC moved eight men to the scrimmage line to rush the pass, but tailback George Montgomery took a draw through the stunned defense for a " The coaches had told us all week that we could run a trap to the inside, so we just took the ball into the line and the hole was there, " Montgomery said. " At first, I was a little shocked because I didn ' t think it would be that big, and after that it was just getting to the goal. " Although USC came back with two late touchdowns to make a tense ending for ASU fans, head coach Larry Marmie said the spirit-lifting win was no less valued. " I can get excited about winning — easy, " Marmie said. The team didn ' t do as well on the season home opener, fumbling the game away and losing to the 16th-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers 18-9, despite a gritty defensive effort that held Nebraska ' s number-one-ranked offense well below its 597-yard per game average. In front of the second-largest home crowd ever, the offense sputtered as it failed to complement the effort on the other side of the ball. Also, the team had almost as many turnovers as points: 7-9. " The defense played well with their backs against the wall, " Marmie said. " There was no consistency on the offense. " Marmie was also critical of himself. " I felt I made some mistakes that hurt this team, " he said. He spoke mainly of two instances when the team failed to run a play at the end of the first half and gamble on fourth and 1 at the Cornhusker 39-yard line. The Sun Devils lost more than the game, as starting quarter- back Bret Powers injured his shoulder when he was sacked by a Nebraska linebacker late in the fourth quarter. When he was not being sacked, Powers was often into throwing his passes. " They ' re pretty good pass rushers, " Marmie said. " We just didn ' t protect him the way we ' re supposed to protect him.

After defeating USC the Sun Devils rose to 24th in the Associated Press poll. This was the wrong season for any football program to visit Seattle. No, not because of the rainy season, but because this was the season of the Washington Huskies ' drive for a national championship. The Sun Devils (4-4), hoping to end a two-game losing streak, came into Husky country with an upset on their minds and possible bowl bids at stake. Instead, the No.three ranked (8-0) showed the Devils why they were tops in the Pac-10 by beating them, 44-16. Not really a close game by most standards. Washington outgained ASU 489 to 231 in total yardage. The first play from scrimmage was indicative of what kind of defense the Devils were going to face that afternoon. Bret was intercepted by Washington cornerback Walter Bailey, which led to a touchdown. Incidentally, both of Washington ' s first quarter scores resulted from ASU turnovers. Kevin Galbreath was stripped of the ball later in the same quarter. Washington quarterbacks Billy Joe Hobart and Mark Brunell completed more than 68 percent of their passes, while Powers, pressured all day from the Huskies front four, just 19 ofhis 42 attempts. The Devils did outscore Washington 16-13 in the half. However, it was the 31-0 trouncing in the first half that did them in. The Sun Devils got a second crack at a Pac-10 powerhouse the next week-the California Golden Bears. With a a victory in Berkeley, the Devils could pump new life into their bowl chances. It needed a solid team effort on both sides of the ball, but only one side showed up-the defense-and that turned into a 25-6 drumming at the hands of the Golden Bears. If it wasn ' t for Kelvin Fisher ' s one-yard run with 59 seconds left in the game, the Devils would have been shut out. Credit should go to California ' s tenacious defense, but in an interview with the Arizona Republic ' s Bob Hurt, offensive coordinator Mike Martz stated otherwise. " The problem is us, " he said " We keep doing dumb things. " ASU managed only 46 yards on 38 carries, turned the ball over four times, were forced to punt nine times, and sacked eight times by the California defense. The Devils were burned on a nifty flea-flicker that went for a 65-yard touchdown pass from QB Mike Pawlawski to wide receiver Brian Treggs in the first quarter. However, the Devils defense held the Bears to field goals until tiring in the fourth quarter. " Our defense played real well, " head coach Larry Marmie said. " But in the end, they were out there too long. " If Arizona State ' s season- opening game against the State Cowboys in Stillwater, Okla., was any indication what kind of season the Devils were going to have, then the 1991 campaign looked bright. Bowl-bright. The Devils featured a well- balanced rushing attack and a conservative but efficient passing game. Four running backs rushed for at least 30 yards- senior Kelvin Fisher on 12 carries for 50 yards, George Montgomery, a sophomore (44 yds.), Junior Jerone Davison (33), and Mario Bates, a freshman (33). Sophomore quarterback Bret Powers completed 14 of 25 passes for 207 yards and one touchdown. The Cowboys opened the scoring with a first-quarter field goal, but for the next three quarters it was all Devils.

The Devils (4-1, 2-0) went into Corvallis to pick up a gimme against the hapless Beavers of Oregon State (0-5, 0-2), 24-7. The defense virtually pummeled the OSU offense, holding them to 27 passing yards and forcing two fumbles on fourth-and-four, leading to 17 points for the Sun Devils. Kurt Lasher, making his start of the season for QB Bret Powers, passed for modest numbers, 14 of 21 for 152 yards. However, the junior played under control and threw no interceptions. Seven of those completions and 102 of those yards went to junior split end Eric Guliford. Although the Sun Devils ' looked bright, this game was not without ASU ' s own mistakes.

Finally, the Bruins would fall and the Sun Devil program would regain respect after an embarrassing loss to State the week before. Alas, that fairy tale never materialized as the Devils again fumbled one away. Bret Powers, making his first start in three games after a injury put him out of action, and fullback Parnell Charles, a redshirt freshman, bobbled a handoff exchange inside the twenty yard line. " It ' s hard to say without seeing it again, " Powers said. But I think the ball just hit off his hands. It ' s my job to get the ball to him. " The Devils (4-3, 2- 2) fell behind 21-3 to the Bruins (5-2, 3-1) before their furious fourth quarter comeback that ended with the Powers to Charles bungle. " We couldn ' t put any points on the board in the first half, " junior Split End Eric Guliford said. " But I think the second half was a demonstration what kind of football team we are, (and) how much pride we have. " The Devils were surprisingly effective in the passing game, as Powers completed 28 of 48 passes for 295 yards and one interception early in the game. " I guess I was a little rusty...but I decided I had to be a little bit sharper mentally and a little bit physically, " Powers said. His main target, as it had been in the past, was Guliford who caught nine passes for 134 yards. " We definitely should have won the game, but we came out to late and we ran out of time, " Guliford said. The approximately 45,000 people that attended the ASU-Oregon matchup the Eric Guliford show, because almost nothing else was awe-inspiring against the Ducks (3-6, 1-5), aside from a kicking game that had no kick. Guliford caught nine passes for 136 yards. No other receiver caught more than t wo passes for the Devils (5-4, 3-3). " We didn ' t shoot ourselves in the foot like we ' ve done in the past, " Guliford said. The kicking game, or lack thereof, had a 21-yard Steve Rausch field goal and a Paul Slabinski punt blocked. Slabinski, a walk-on, made his first career start. The Devils scored first against the Ducks before sweating out a victory that was not won until 33-yard field goal with 4:16 to go.

Yards 88 361 61 207 Courtesy of Sports Information Answering questions from the press, new football coach Bruce Snyder ex plains why he chose to come to ASU. Snyder came from coaching California after a five year winning record. FUTURE Bruce Snyder rolled his eyes and leaned a little closer to the microphones and tape recorders in front ofhim when asked at an informal press gathering on Jan. 10 how he ' s adjusted to his new job. " I ' ll tell you, I don ' t think I ' ve been out of (my new) office for three hours since I ' ve been here, " ASU ' s new football coach said. " That was to go and meet someone from the school here. I swear, I haven ' t had the chance to sit and think where things are going. " While Snyder might have been exaggerating slightly about where his time had gone since he was named ASU ' s 20th football coach with tremendous hoopla on Jan.5, there was no doubt that he had brought a relentless work ethic into his new position. He really had no choice. Snyder, 51, came to Tempe after five seasons at California -where he turned a perennial loser into a team that was 10-2 and finished this season ranked 7th in the country - and faced two chores he hoped to take care of soon. The new coach was dealing with the immediate tasks of selecting his assistants and getting grips on recruiting, where the Sun Devils were slowed in while searching for a replacement for Larry Marmie. Snyder had been given permission to talk to some of his staff members from Cal, but coaches from Marmie ' s staff may have been in the picture also. Snyder said he would be entertaining inquiries from around the country. " First of all, this place is attracting some real high-caliber inquiries, " Snyder said. " I ' m getting resumes, applications and tons of telephone calls from people who are interested in being here. So, I think I ' m going to be able to choose from a pretty nice pool of coaches. " Snyder coined the slogan " Building for the Future " when taking over a woefully inept Cal program in 1986, orchestrating a dramatic turnaround that culminated in a very successful 1991 season and a big win over Clemson in the Florida Citrus Bowl on New Year ' s Day. Shortly afterward, ASU Director of Charles Harris lured Snyder away from Cal with a five-year package which would bring the coach around $450,000 a season. Amidst criticism in the Bay area that he turned his back on Cal and took the money and ran, Snyder said he was loyal until the very end. " If you want to talk about loyalty, I think there may be some coaches who would ' ve left their teams prior to the bowl game, " Snyder said. " In my case, I know I recruited my butt off and coached as hard as I could. We had 12 quality commitments and won a Jan.1 bowl game. Now you tell me - I don ' t think that it abandonment by my definition of the word. " Snyder began his 30th year in coaching when ASU opened the 1992 season against defending national champion Washington on Sept. 5 at Sun Devil Stadium By Dan Zeiger team The bigger they are the harder they fall. T he wrestling team fell from its highly regarded position of being one of the top squads in the finishing no lower than the last three years, to a 13th at the NCAA championships. It was a real disappointment, " Graduate Assistant Coach Thom Ortiz said. " It ' s the first time we ' ve been out of the top ten in six years. " After finishing second the year before, the Sun Devils were to remain in the upper level of collegiate wrestling, appearing fourth in the pre-season poll. Some players said that injuries contributed more to the Devils ' slide than any other factor. " It was one of the worst (seasons), " Sophomore LaSh awn Charles said. " As far as injuries go, and as far as psychological. " Ray Miller, another sophomore, believed the team, injuries or no injuries, still could have fared better. " We lost a few tight matches, " he said. " (We) didn ' t get any breaks. Not to make up any excuses, but it seemed like everything fell against us. Senior Andy McNaughton agreed. " We had the talent; we just didn ' t come together, " he said. The Sun Devils placed only four All-Americans at nationals, the fewest since 1987. Those garnering honors were heavyweight Mike Anderson, G. T. Taylor in the 167-pound weight class, Miller at 158 pounds, and Charles at 126 pounds. Miller finished fourth overall while Anderson, Taylor, and Charles all placed seventh in their respective weight classes. " One call cost me a higher ranking, " Charles said, losing his match by one point. With several wrestlers hampered with injuries, conditioning for the nationals suffered also. " The season was mainly stop and go, " Sophomore Marco Anthony Sanchez said. " I was held up by injuries. " continued on page 318 Scott Burgus 316 WRESTLING Scott Burgus Trying to regain control, G.

However, injuries were a factor to Sanchez as he suffered a broken ankle, a rib injury and a deep cut to his knee. McNaughton and senior Rex Holman were the other NCAA qualifiers. The 13th place finish at the NCAA tournament may not have been pleasing, but the squad still remained king of the hill as far as the Pac-10 was considered. The Sun Devils were conference champions for the seventh year in a row, posting a 12-5-1 record in the dual competition. Notable meets were a 21-20 upset of then top-ranked Penn State in January, and a 40-5 thrashing from No. 1 Iowa, which was Coach Douglas ' worst defeat since 1984. The Sun Devils also suffered a 21- 16 loss to Iowa State, as well as one to another top-ranked team, Oklahoma State, ending ASU ' s 26-match home winning streak. The injury-riddled Sun may have suffered its worst season in seven years, but all four of its all-Americans as well as Sanchez said they would and were confident that next season would put them back into a higher echelon of wrestling. Team unity would be stressed as Douglas started a program to have the team ' s veterans help bring the newcomers into the fold. " Coach Douglas has the older guys looking after the younger guys, " McNaughton said. " Now we ' re more of a family. " Taylor, co-captain along with Anderson, agreed with McNaughton. " Last year was not a very big team effort, but this year with us looking after the younger guys, it will be a chance for the youth to pick up some techniques and the elders to become better coaches, " he said. Sanchez also said he was optimistic about next season. " In practice the inten sity never dies, " he said. " We ' re looking forward to doing real well.

Steverson ' s popularity began before his college years, when A TEN recruiters saw his potential for AND THAT ' S contributing to a college team. " I was offered to go professional for the St. Louis Cardinals when was in high school, " Steverson said Steverson, a center fielder who also captained the team, said that the reason he liked baseball was because it was a personal challenge to him. Although he started playing over a decade ago, Steverson said he had a rough start because of his age. " I started playing baseball at ten and that ' s old for a baseball player, " he said. Steverson, a junior, said he would pursue professional baseball in next year ' s draft for amateur players.

Pre-season number one in the beginning, but no post-season play at the end due to a 35-27 record. " Last year was extremely disappointing,” Coach Jim Brock said. " Probably my most disappointing year. " Even though the team was a solid hitting force, Brock said the pitching was suspect at times. " We knew we were paper thin in pitching so we found ourselves trying to score enough runs (to compensate for the pitching), " he said. At a team ERA of 5.84, this led to a lot of 10 to nine-type ball games. As for the reputed outfield of Tommy Adams, Jim Austin and All-American Mike Kelly, it never transpired. " Adams was injured for the first six weeks of the season and later kicked off the team, and Jim was moved to the infield, " Brock said. Austin, last year ' s RBI leader at 64, hit consistently, ranking eighth in the six-Pac with a .364 batting average. He also was co- leader in home runs with 15. " Kelly had a very good year, " Brock said. " Well, by anybody else ' s standards, it was an outstanding year. " His " good " year consisted of a .373 batting average with 56 RBI,15 home runs, 23 stolen bases, and the second pick overall in the June amateur draft to the Atlanta Braves. Brock said he felt Doug Newstrom developed into the ace of his pitching staff. Despite an ERA of 5.43, Newstrom pitched well for the Sun Devils. " Newstrom was 10-two last season, " he said. " He led the six- Pac in wins. We were pleased with the way he ended up. " The defense drew minimal praise from Brock. " Marginal defense, " he said. " Kurt Ehmann did well for us at shortstop. " " Paper thin " pitching and marginal " defense were Brock ' s reasons for a mostly forgettable six-Pac performance. " We played far better in non- conference games, " he said. " A 12-18 record was very Not a good at all. " Still, Brock was optimistic about next season. " We ' ll have improvement in defense and pitching, " he said. " Hitting will be a problem so we ' ll have to keep the scoring down. Last season is something to learn from and put behind us. " keep team out of tournament Although the Arizona State womens volleyball team made great progress in the 1991 under third-year coach Patti Snyder, the Sun Devils still failed to gain a spot in the post-season tournament. " We were about an iota, just an inch away from getting into the national tournament this year, " Snyder said. Despite a sixth place in the toughest in the NCAA, the Pac- 10, and a winning record (14-12) from a schedule rated eighth-toughest in the the Devils were left out of competition in December. " We ' re actually kind of bitter and very disappointed about the selection process, " Snyder said. In the end, Snyder said that the team lost out to political factors that were beyond their control. The Sun were invited to the National Tournament, but Snyder said they declined because they felt they should have been invited to the big dance. Still, Snyder was proud of her team ' s " progress " throughout out the season, and the standout performances of her co-captains helped solidify a young team. " We had an outstanding performance from, possibly our player of the year, Debbie Penney, our senior middle blocker, " Snyder said. " She was first team all Pac-1 0 and she made first te am as well. Mindi Gowell was second team all-region. She ends her career as one of the finest players ever at State. She holds school records for kills in a season and digs in a season.

" This really picks me up, plus the fact that Coach is there to help me, too. " One of Smith ' s pet peeves was the fact that many people looked down upon athletes as students. " Most people think we have it made, but we don ' t, " he said. " They think that we are given the grade because we are athletes. Does that mean we ' re not capable of doing good work? " 324 Scott Second-year head coach Bill Frieder prepared the mens team for their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1980-81. The Devils defeated Rutgers 79-76 in the first-round game at the NCAA Tournament at the Omni in Atlanta. ASU went on to defeat Arkansas 98-97. " We had four freshmen on the floor at times and started three freshman in the NCAA Tournament, " Frieder said. " Our young kids matured faster than and became over achievers in reaching the NCAA Tournament. " With an impressive defense, the Sun Devils scored 19-9 overall for the 1990-91 season, with the year ' s record for home and road games staying at at least .500. At home at University Activity Center, the Sun Devils were 14-4 and 5-5 (4-5 Pac-10) on the road. The all-time single-season record was broken when 143,264 fans saw ASU play at home.

Something happened the basketball team ' s season Nov. 23 against Kansas and the Jayhawks ' present residence in the NCAA Final Four, but it had little to do with KU. " Something wonderful " , as was said in the movie 2010, evolved under the University Activity Center roof. For Sun Devil basketball fans, it may have been as extraordinary as the discovery of life. After all, a rare occurred that many doubted they would see in their lifetimes. ASU had indeed arrived as a basketball program and how. It was not enough that the Sun Devils made the NCAA tournament for the first time in a but ASU proved it there by exiting the tourney with one win under its belt and a new-found respect, recognition and experience from its departing loss. " I ' m proud of my team, " said Coach Bill Frieder, who had compiled a 35-26 in his first two seasons in Tempe. " I ' m proud of the season. These kids have got a terrific experience because they never have been in the NCAA before and now they have something to look forward to next year and something to prepare for over the summer. " The primetime star in the making proved to be Jamal Faulkner more than ever down the season ' s stretch run. In ASU ' s final 12 games, he took senior Isaac Austin ' s role as the team ' s leading scorer and grabbed the nation ' s attention with a career-high game of 29 points and eight rebounds against Arkansas in Atlanta. " It was a good year for us, " Faulkner said. " We ' re not satisfied with the loss (to the Razorbacks), but the experience will help us next time when we get in a situation like this. " Dwayne Fontana, known for his ability to play above his 6- foot-4 frame, moved into the starting lineup for ASU ' s last eight games and averaged 11.5 points per contest, a four-point jump from the previous 22 games. Stevin Smith, a.k.a. " Hedake, " made a name for himself late in the year as the team ' s best ball-pusher on the fast break while adding " unfreshmanlike " cool on both sides of the court. " This (the NCAA tourney) is going to make us work harder in the offseason, " Smith said. " It let us know that we can play on this level.

" Jerro, who played for the womens basketball team, came to ASU on an athletic scholarship and was a valuable player to team. She said that her COOPERATING WITH personality. I ' m really enthusiastic about playing, " Jerro said. She said she spent most of her time on basketball, but never got sick of it. " I just like to play, " she said. " Once you do it for a long time, you get used to it and you have time for other things. " Jerro had been playing basketball for about ten years and said she felt that it was a " competitive " outlet for her. She added that she enjoyed the sport because of its excitement, fast pace as well as the feeling through teamwork. and cooperating with people, " she said. " I like that.

Photo by Scott Burgus Scott Burgus Last year the womens basketball team suffered through a tough second half of the season to finish with a .500 record at 14-14 and a 5-13 record in the Pacific-10, placing ninth. " Last year we were expecting to do well, " Assistant Coach Evelyn Thompson said. " We were too young for collegiate basketball. " The team suffered a season- ending injury to senior Karen O ' Conner, leaving the team an experienced playmaker. " Losing Karen at point (guard) really hurt us, " Thompson said. The women lost 9 of their last 12 games, which were all conference matchups. However, Thompson did note several individual performances. " Lisa Salsman ended the season playing well, " she said. Salsman, the first player off the bench, and a career 50 percent shooter, averaged 12.6 points per game and 7.2 rebounds. " Crystal Cobb was pretty and so was (forward) Jovonne Smith, " Thompson said. Cobb, a guard, led the team in scoring at 13 points per game and assists, while Smith was second in scoring (12.5) and led the team in rebounding with an 8.5 per game average. The inexperience Thompson pointed out came from last years two freshmen, regina Davis and Nikki Thompson. Thompson also said improvement from key players was necessary for next season. " (Forward) Shannon Gridley must give (us) more she said. " Monique was very consistent for us at the center position, but she needs to be a little more aggressive. " Thompson did compliment Nikki Thompson ' s over the off-season. " She ' s steps ahead of last year, " Thompson said. " She has mental toughness that will lead us to more 329 The mens golf team failed to repeat as champions last year, but Head Coach Steve Loy was pleased with his team ' s effort . " Overall, we were as good as we ' ve ever been, " Loy said. " We won six tournaments last year, the same amount as we won the year before when we won the national championship. We were ranked number one throughout the year. " But the squad suffered somewhat of a disappointment at the NCAA Championship in Pebble Beach, California. " It ' s just unfortunate we had one bad day at the NCAA championship, " Loy said. " Being our first tournament round and we got so far behind, we just couldn ' t make it up, but we got close. State ended up winning the tournament and North Carolina finished second ahead of us. " Despite an unfortunate first round in the NCAA tournament, the Sun Devils still finished fourth in 13 out of 15 tournaments. According to Loy, the team still " ended up tied for number one even after the national championship was completed. " Although, the team fell just short of its goal, Loy still spoke of the team ' s effort positively . And the Devils did have some outstanding individual players who received top post-season honors. " We had the player of the year in Phil Mickelson, same as the previous year, " Loy said. " We had three All-Americans on last year ' s team, that being Mickelson, Brett Dean, and Jim Lemon. " Those three, along with Scott Sullivan, Keith Sbarbaro, and Cade Stone last year combined to finish in the top ten 27 times in tournaments that ASU participated in. All except Lemon returned for the 1991-92 season. But Mickelson, a junior, was the key to the Devils ' succ ess. " There ' s no question we have the number one player in the world in Phil Mickelson, " he said. " He ' s won 15 collegiate tournaments in his career, three shy of the all-time record held by Ben Crenshaw. It ' s a coach ' s dream to have a guy like that in the program.

Scott Burgu Watching his father swing a golf club " WHEN before his first steps, Phil Mickelson ' s WAS ONE early attentiveness had paid off. " I watched AND A my dad play in our backyard, " he said. " Then HALF... when I was one and a half, he cut down a golf THAT ' S club for me and that ' s when I learned to play. " WHEN After years of practice with his father, I LEARNED he played golf in high school and led his team to the TO state finals. " When we (the team) traveled, I PLAY. always had hopes of catching a good coach ' s eye, " Mickelson said. At ASU, his aspirations came true where he was offered a golf scholarship and became a two-year NCAA individual title winner. Mickelson, a psychology major, was ranked first on the golf team, with a 69.9 average. " I ' m still not sure about what I ' m going to do with my degree after I graduate, but I am planning to go pro, " he said. Michelle Conway When you get to the top, the next challenge is to stay there. Unfortunately, the womens golf team were overun with those unforseen obstacles that plague national champions, forcing coach Linda Vollstedt to rebuild. " Last year was a rebuilding year for us, " Vollstedt said. " We finished in the top 4 in 8 out of the ten tournaments we played in, and we continued our streak of having at least one all-American (on the squad). " That honor went to Tricia Konz. Konz placed in the top 10 in five tournaments. Lynne Mikulas did it four times. Mindy Bono did it twice, and Julie Shephard also had one top 10 finish during the season. The Sun Devil ' s year included top four finishes in the Oregon Invitational in Vancouver, Washington, the Ping Tour Tulsa Invitational, the Bruin Desert Classic in Palm Springs, the Chris in Tucson, the Lady Sun Devil and the Ping Pac-10 Conference Championship in Eugene, Oregon. This would hardly sound like a rebuilding year for most golf programs, except if you played in the Pac-10, which Vollstedt said was probably the strongest all-around conference in the country. Playing in such a competitive conference, Vollstedt was not willing to call the season a failure by any means. " It was a good year, " she said. " We just didn ' t have that to put us over the top. " That " superstar " was Brandie Burton who left ASU after her freshman year to join the professional tour. So to make due without her, the team finished a respectable fourth in the Pac-10 championship. " Since it was a rebuilding year, that made us look forward to next year, " Vollstedt said.

" It ' s another year of trying to stay at the same level, " Coach Sheri Rhodes said. The championship level at which Rhodes tried to keep the Sun Devils consisted of 12 straight national championships for the men, eight of nine for the women and 14 straight for the mixed team. In her fourteen-year tenure, Rhodes had coached 39 national championship teams. The mens (6,206 pts.), womens (5,987 pts.), and mixed (8,243 pts.) teams were all victorious last spring. " We placed four or five in the top 10 and seven in the top 12, " Rhodes said. Archers on the All-America squad were Chad Conner, Jamie Loesch, Tim Huedepohl, Chris Castner, Kris Maskrey, Janet Schaffer, Susan Page and Heather Collins. Conner and Maskrey captured the individual titles, bringing the total to 19 that Rhodes has coached. Rhodes said that the best in the country were to Arizona State ' s winning tradition. This, of course, gave Rhodes advantages in recruiting over her peers. " We have a unique situation here, " she said. " We can pick and choose. We don ' t have to recruit as hard. " Rhodes said her coaching technique emphasized individual successes, including possible spots on the Olympic team. " Quite a few (on the team) have Olympic aspirations, " she said. The team appeared to be untouchable, but Rhodes said she would still get her archers prepared for next year as she had done the 14 previous ones so they would " stay at the present level.

Sokol Propelling himself over the bar, Paul Bedewi competes in a match. The team finished the season in third place in the Pac-10. In the past the top three teams in the Pac meant the top three positions in the country at the end of the season. " ( The 4-Pac championships) is just another gym meet, " said coach Don Robinson. The NCAA championships are always the important meet. " Third in the Pac is most likely third in the nation, " said Robinson. Last season the Sun Devils finished third in the Pac, but they did not occupy any of the top three positions in the after post season play. " We should have been third; we ended up ninth, " said Robinson whose expectations lie in national championships. " We were going strong up until regionals, but the pressure got to us, " said Jody Newman whose as a junior last earned him sixth all around in the country. " It was real disappointing. " " We started out the team, " freshman Geoff Eaton said. " It seemed we were a great team but not a consistent one. We were national contenders. " Fellow gymnast Paul Bedewi put it more mildly. " We basically choked, " he said. Robinson said the hand to Christian Rohde hurt the team as well. Over all individual that Robinson noted were Newman, although he will be limited next season due to a knee injury, Bedewi, Eaton, Kurt Johnson, and Chris Smith from the Virgin Islands who Robinson said was, " in the upper third in the world.

Sokol women tie for eighth in NCAA A rebuilding year usually meant one long season for the coach. However, last season,the womens gymnastics team brought relative success to coach John Spini. " I thought we had a successful season, " Spini said. " In fact, it was one of our best rebuilding years. " A successful season was nothing new to Spini or to ASU. A Spini-coached team finished outside the top 10 only once in his eleven years at ASU. " We ended up tied for eighth (in the NCAA), " Spini said. Spini boasted this considering he started five freshmen. " We could have even done better if it weren ' t for (an injury to) Christine (Belotti), who did not compete at nationals, " he said. Another reason Spini believed the squad could have done the better for was mat the panel used to judge the gymnasts. The top six seeds were placed in the evening competition, separated from the bottom six who competed in the morning. " In the evening session the crowds are bigger and the judges tend to award higher scores, " Spini said. " It ' s really no fair. " Still, he said,the season was a success as the team finished fourth in the strong Pac-10. " We did finish fourth after a shaky start, and could have easily been last, " Spini said. During the season Spini was quick to point out the two key victories of UofA and Louisiana State. " We beat them (the UofA) on our court, " Spini said. " I think our record is something like 18-1-1 since I ' ve been here. Another big meet was beating LSU. We beat a top 10 school on the road. " Krys Marchitto Tracy Butler, the leader on ASU ' s young gymnastics team, attributed her success last season to a TO diligent weight training program she had during the off-season. " I had one of my better years BECAUSE last year, " she said. " The weight training helped IT HAS me last a little longer (throughout the season). " An AN injury-free season helped Butler EXCELLENT enjoy her finest season as she PROGRAM participated in the all-around competition. She looked to her senior season as her final one in gymnastics, so she wanted to go out with a bang. " I came to ASU because it has an excellent program and to get away from the coldness of Ohio, " she said. " It ' s my last season, and I ' m hopeful we ' ll do even better. " Butler, a nutrition major, wanted to become a registered after her gymnastics career was over. Scott Burgus The softball team ' s of last season over the year before left Coach Linda Wells pleased with the women ' s effort as they challenged for the 6-Pac title. " I thought we had an excellent season, " said Wells. " In particular, our second-place finish in the conference, and only a half game behind the champion (UCLA). " The Sun Devils participated in the NCAA championships, losing to intra-state rival UofA. " We lost to the UofA (in two games) in the regionals and they went on to win the NCAA championship, " Wells said. ASU ended the season ranked fourth in the nation, thanks in part to the play of Rachel Brown, a junior. She was team MVP and made the All- American second team with a team high .368 batting average. " Rachel Brown was our best player, " Wells said. " We also had two conference players of the week in Dawn Wood and Terri Carnicelli who also made all-conference and all-region, " she said. Wood, a sophomore, and Carnicelli, a junior, whose stats were almost identical, including 13-5 records, led the pitching staff with a team 1.29 ERA. ASU ' s team batting average was .269, almost fifty points higher than that of their opponents. Junior Christy Serritella was the only other player to join Brown in the .300 club, batting .323.

" I really admire him because he is only 180 pounds and he is the meanest guy out there, " he said. Reidy said he also enjoyed playing other sports besides badminton, and soccer was his personal favorite. UNITED STATES " " I want to play soccer after my season of badminton is over, " he said. " It ' s something I enjoy to do. " Reidy ' s badminton season was far from being over ,as he aspired to the Olympic games. " I ' m pretty sure I ' m going, but only time will tell, " he said. " It will be an exciting event in my life. " adminton team dominate the notion Badminton may not have been regarded as a very competitive sport, simply because there was no other collegiate program that was able to compete with the Sun Devils. Instead, it was considered a major learning program in developing young badminton players into top players for competition and, the Olympics. " We ' re just considered one of the primary badminton in the country, " Coach Guy Chadwick said. Last year was a typical for Chadwick ' s Devils- national championships for the mens, womens, and mixed teams across the board. ASU also had the men ' s and women ' s titlists: Tom Reidy (the team ' s " highlight player " ) and Jenny Chan. " We completely dominated the collegiate championships, " Chadwick said. Even though ASU had virtually dominated collegiate badminton for the past decade and Chadwick said he saw no end to the dynasty, the challenge was still visible for him. " The for us is you never know what the future brings, " he said. " You can ' t sit on your laurels. We want to continue to better the program. " Chadwick added that the Sun Devils had been able to stay No. one because they landed the top players in the world, fielding an international cast. Recruiting seemed to be simple for Chadwick, because if an individual was rated as one of the best, he or she would often contact Chadwick. " It (recruiting) is a much easier job, " he said. " But a satisfying job because we have to turn away many other great players. " Besides recruiting, the of the administration was another component that Chadwick attributed to keeping ASU at the top. " We can ' t do this without the support by administration, " he said. " Funding enables this thing to occur: to travel, to play, to train. " Chadwick was optimistic about the upcoming season. " I ' m excited, " he said. " We ' d like to make it 10 straight years. " Reaching up to hit the birdie, jenny Chan prepares to send the ball back over the net.

He had two reasons for Lewis out for a year: looking forward to next season with a stronger squad, and to better Lewis ' training. " I think it is only fair to let him mature, " Lehman said. ASU ' s standouts on the men ' s side were Kendall Fink and Mike Frick, both seniors, Tony Hernandez, a junior, and freshman Aaron Scroggins. Fink and Scroggins finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively, at the UTEP Invitational. Hernandez was the Sun top finisher along with Fink at the ASU Invitational. He was also ASU ' s top finisher at the NCAA Region VIII Championship. Frick placed 22nd at the conference champi- onship. Lehman added that the women were equally impressive.

Cordell, a junior, was the top finisher at the UTEP invitational and second finisher behind Huffmaster, a sophomore, in three other meets. Lehman said Kristin Wellman, a freshman also to the womens team effort. She finished third Huffmaster and Cordell in all four meets.

One of his reasons for attending ASU was because he wanted to stay close to home. " I liked the support I had from the community, and I ' ve always been an ASU fan, " he said. Lewis said he enjoyed the time he spent as a member of the cross country team, and especially the travel that was involved.

The counselors taught relaxation often through imagery, that was aimed at helping the student athlete focus and concentrate. They discussed team goals, the importance of team membership and group dynamics when working with entire teams. Steve Goldston, a graduate assistant with the department, said the counselors worked not only with athletes but also with any group affiliated with athletics, such as the cheer squad. " The services we provide are focused on performance enhancement, " he said. " We help the athlete improve through mental training.

Originally started by faculty including Dr. Darwin Lender, a psychology professor, the program existed in different forms and survived budget cuts in order to provide a valuable service to collegiate athletes. However, Goldston said that there remained a " stigma " attached that the counselors had yet to overcome. " Many people still have the ' shrink ' idea, " he said. " They are not aware of the performance enhancement side of things. " The attitude about sports psychologists may have been changing, thanks to the successes the psychologists said they accomplished. The counselors assisted the student athlete with everything from performance enhancement to personal concerns that they may have had. " I think (the athletes competing in) Olympic sports are more educated about these things, " he said.

The game was decided in a span of eight minutes that included five unanswered touchdowns by the Nittany Lions. Only ASU had won as many Fiesta Bowls as Penn State (5), and nobody has a better percentage than a Joe Paterno coached team because Paterno had never lost at Tempe. Trailing 10-7 late in the third quarter, Penn State ' s TD- fest began. There were three strikes by quarterback Tony Sacca, and a short touchdown scamper by runningback Richie Anderson. In the middle of all this, even the defense managed to put some points on the scoreboard as backer Reggie Givens, the game ' s most valuable defensive player, caught a fumble by Tennessee quarterback Andy Kelly in mid- air and returned it 23 yards for a touchdown. Since the ball never touched the ground, the officials later ruled the turnover as an interception. Despite his Volunteers ' 441- 226 advantage in yardage, Coach Johnny Majors saw his team collapse after dominating the first half. After the first half, it seemed unusual that Penn State was still even in the ball game. Kelly threw at will in the first 30 minutes to his main target, junior Carl Pickens, who already had 100 yards in receiving in the first half- but none in the crucial second half. Running back James Stewert paced the Volunteers ' rushing attack by gaining 86 yards, tops among runners for both teams. All in all, Tennessee gained 324 yards in the first two and Penn State managed just a meager 59 yards. The start of the second half looked as it was going to be much of the same. Kelly opened the second half scoring with a 40-yard pass, but the rest of the half was all Lions. When Penn State ' s flashy wide receiver 0. J. McDuffie returned a punt for 39 yards inside Tennessee ' s territory, the blitzkrieg was underway. McDuffie, voted the game ' s most valuable player, also led Penn State in with four catches for 78 yards. Making a fast break, the Tennessee running back outmaneuvers Penn State lineman Brett Wright. Sixth ranked Penn State was victorious over 10th ranked Tennessee. Photo by Sean Openshaw OLYMPIC The United States Olympics was a dream for many athletes, but what if that dream finally came true? Doug Newstrom and Tod Steverson were both baseball players and Olympic hopefuls. Newstrom, a first baseman and pitcher, had played baseball since he was five years old. " Baseball is fun, " he said. " I tried football and basketball, but I liked baseball the best so I went for it. " He also said he had many people that he admired in professional baseball, including Will Clark. " I like the way he plays, " Newstrom said. " He makes a lot of money and has a lot of inner confidence. Some people even say I have his swing. " Steverson was another Olympic hopeful, who had been playing baseball since he was nine years old. He also mentioned many role models in professional sports. " I especially admire Darryl Strawberry because he grew up around where I did, and I view him as being very intelligent as well as being a very good athlete, " Steverson said. " He is also a very good baseball player and very motivated in this professional sport. " Steverson also said he had a lot of determination and motivation, and that his education was the most important thing to him. " I play baseball just for fun, " he said. " I believe in work ethic and baseball has taught all of that and more. I need security beyond what I do as an athlete, so I want my degree in communications. " The motivation of a degree and the talent of being a good athle te were contributing factors to Steverson ' s Olympic chances. " I have a pretty decent chance of going to the Olympics and it is a great honor to do something for my country, " he said. The dream of going to the Olympics had come true for swimmer David Holder, who had been swimming since 1981. " My motivation comes from just wanting to play the sport and enjoying it, " Holder said. Holder attended the 1988 Olympics representing France. " I only placed 21st in the competition, but in this Olympics I want to really get involved and try hard, " he said.

HARRASSMENT Appointment Postponed When Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court last year, his seemed certain. Thomas, 43, had emerged from a poverty-stricken Southern background to become a federal appellate judge. However, the certainty seemed to disappear when Anita Hill, a University of Oklahoma law professor, alleged Thomas had sexually harassed her when they worked together at the Department of Education ' s Office of Civil Rights and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Hill told the Senate Judiciary Committee of Thomas ' alleged sexual boasts, of acts in pornographic films he saw, and his asking her out for dates, while Thomas denied all charges.

Yeltsin, President of the Russian Republic, led the popular resistance to the coup and emerged as a powerful leader in the new political picture of the Soviet Union. Yeltsin proposed a new commonwealth of independent states which would unite the three Slavic republics: Russia, the Ukraine and Byelorussia. The three contained approximately three-fourths of the Soviet Union ' s 290 million people and were in possession of the majority of its economic powers.

He was best known for his traditional family values and his inspiring roles. LANDON LEAVES Highway To Heaven 1991 marked the passing of actor Michael Landon, who died last summer after a bout with pancreatic cancer. Landon was best known for his roles on " Bonanza " , " Little House on the Prairie " and " Highway to Heaven " , of which the latter two series were his own creation. He often said that he felt the shows he created should emphasize traditional family values, which was in stark contrast to his own painful childhood, where he endured emotional neglect from his mother. Landon, 54, was by his wife, Cindy, and nine children. Landon was remembered at his memorial service with a poem he wrote for a " Little House " episode: " Remember me with smiles and for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don ' t remember me at all. " By Marlene E.

For the first time in history, all parties sat together in one room, setting the stage for peace negotiations. The three-day peace conference was held in Madrid, Spain, with the United States and the Soviet Union mediating. U.S. Secretary of State James Baker was as the intermediary between the groups during the eight-month drive to bring Israel and its adversaries together to work out a plan for peace. The conference was called a success by those who participated. Territorial changes were discussed, but no official concessions were made by any of the participants. A second phase of negotiations were planned; however, no date or location was set.

By Kim Kaan ABOLITION Ending Discrimination " Fighting the evil of discrimination that has divided the country for decades, " said President Bush, was the purpose of the recently approved Civil Rights Act of 1991. It was reported that legal advisor C. Boyden Gray circulated a document to government agencies on the eve of the signing. It would have ended all preferential hiring guidelines and promotions for minorities and women. Gray later said in his defense that he didn ' t realize how it would be interpreted; that it wasn ' t meant to target affirmative action and protective contracts. Though Bush claimed to support affirmative action, he had often expressed his concern that employers would have to to " racial quotas. " Still, his modified version would make it easier for workers to file and win job discrimination suits. By Jennifer DeCarvalho Associated Press Meeting to sign a civil rights pact, F.

Sixteen people lost their lives and 1,700 acres were destroyed prompting the president to declare the fire a major disaster.

The next morning " the winds started to kick in and it was as if they were just dropping gasoline from the sky, " said KTVU reporter Rob Roth of the fire ' s rapid spread. In addition to the deaths and damages, 49 people were reported missing and 5,000 evacuated. This included 1,000 UC students who were sent to a shelter when their dormitory was caught in the blaze.

As everyone watched, Mother Teresa ' s condition soon improved after her three-week stay. Mother Teresa is best known for her remarkable ability to heal the sick.
