ASU added a cultural diversity course requirement to improve interracial relations. Photo by Tim Gibbons Every university across the nation has to deal with stereotypes. Many schools have good reputations in all areas. Others are not so fortunate. Take Arizona State University, it has been in the top ten " party school " list for many years. It ' s reputation for easy classes and easy women adds to its reputation for student trips to Mexico and tubing down the Salt River. ASU was considered by Playboy as one of the top party schools in the nation and they even sent representatives to find the women to prove it. With this image to deal with, it ' s a wonder anyone graduated from this school. But they did, and with honors. ASU has one of the most successful graduate programs and excels in computer science, engineering, journalism, architecture, law, sports, residence living and yes, fun. Because ASU is-not only parties and sunshine, it is a top university with quality academics, athletics and students. When you scratch the surface of Arizona Walking along Cady Mall, students pass by the job fair booths. The fair was a service offered to students by the Academic Center. Photo by Steve Wagner zona State University, you will find people who are concerned about their environment and to do something about it. In the residence halls you will find state-of-the-art living for the of disabled students. Organizations offer students a place to find their potential and build a future for themselves. Athletes prove to be more than just talented sportsmen and women, they prove to be human beings with problems and the courage to overcome them. The Greek system gives those looking for friendship a ticket into the largest and sisterhood in the nation. The student body at ASU is diversified and uni- fied in the common struggle to not only gain an education, but earn one. We invite you to take a look at what we found beyond the stereotypes at ASU...then we challenge you to scratch the surface and see what you can find. Amie Madden Concentrating on returning the ball, Doug Reber prepares to make contact. The athletic program at ASU was a breeding ground for and criticism, but the athletes proved themselves when it counted. Photo by Suzanne Kyer Sitting atop " A " John Pappas overlooks the campus spread out below him. Students were able to find many valuable aspects of ASU once the surface was scratched. Photo by Tina Rasmussen Student Life Editors Marlene Naubert and Jill Harnisch life If the first impression is the one that lasts, ASU is in big trouble. At first look students see apathy, materialism and a low quality education. But at a closer look, students found MORE THAN MEETS THE I. Not only does ASU have the aspects of a party school but it offers diversity, excellence in academics and a student body who is willing to get involved in their environment. life Editor ' s Note: Kim Walters was a freshman from Colorado. She told her story about what it was like being an out-of-state student to Spark Yearbook copywriter Jen Paullin. These are her own words. " You go to ASU? I heard that is a major party school. " It seemed as though wherever I went people said something about ASU ' s party reputation. They assumed that was why everyone decided to go there. When I went there, I saw that everyone there was very social. Yes, it was a party school which was good in some ways and bad in other ways. It was good because parties were a good way to meet people and have fun. It was bad because people partied too hard and got themselves into trouble. Even though ASU was known as a party school, when I got there I found out that it was not the only thing the school was made of. Partying was a major part of the college scene, but gaining an education was the real reason I went there. I had always wa nted to major in broadcasting, and ASU was the most appealing to me. The price was decent, and Arizona was famous for its unlimited days of sunshine. Obviously, that played a big role when it came to narrowing the choices down to one. Not only did I go to ASU to socialize, I went to get involved. I was on the speech team, and we competed in different tournaments at different universities. Yes, it was true that I went to ASU for an education, but once I arrived, my interests and involvements helped me decide where I felt the most at ease. In the end, I tended to look deeper, but what road I followed depended on my own growth and goals. kim walters pau above — Taking time out on the weekend, Kim Walters, a freshman journalism major, does her weekly laundry. Many out-of-state students spent their first days at ASU learning routine tasks. Photo by Tim Gibbons right — Looking through her high school yearbook, Katie Doyle, reminisces about home. Most students brought such mementos from home to make the state-to-state transition easier. Photo by Tim Gibbons 1 out-of-state " where i ended up as all part of the Editor ' s Note: Andrea A. Najor, was a senior and a Gamma Phi Beta. The following story is about her night life experience as told to Sun Devil Spark copywriter Jennifer Roybal. ASU nightlife was very diverse. You could go to a bar to chat with your friends, go out to a party and dance all night long, chill out with a nice hot cup of java at the Coffee Plantation, play a couple of games of pool over at Kolby ' s, or have a nice quiet evening of dinner and drinks with your boyfriend at House of Trix. No matter what your taste was, there was always something to do. Being in the Greek system gave me an opportunity to meet people and go out. On the weekends, we had an exchange of activities with other fraternities or sororities, such as joint parties, games, trips out of town, and formal dances. A lot of times, we all met and just rented a movie or went shopping. It was an awesome feeling knowing you had a hundred plus friends to do stuff with. Most of the people you saw out at bars were really friendly and were out just to meet people and have a good time. For me, a typical Friday night started with work, but where I ended up from there was all part of the fun. Scottsdale bars were very popular. Jetz, Mahoney ' s, Zone, Anderson ' s 5th Estate and The Works were some of them. I met my friends at Mahoney ' s for a drink, and we would all head to Club Rio from there. The outside area was fantastic and they always had a live band. In the inside, you could always rely on good dance music. We ' d stay at Rio for awhile then head to D.J ' s. Usually we didn ' t stay there all night, but we ' d head back to the Tempe bars. Friday night at Balboa Cafe was always cool. It was very rare that we didn ' t have a good time. When the bewitching hour of 1 a.m. came around, we headed to Denny ' s for a late-night snack and straggled on back home. Continued on page 12 above — Enjoying the music of Azz Izz, the crowd at Club Rio dances in the patio. ASU was surrounded by several nightclubs that were frequented by students.

The MU was a popular place for students to shoot pool, bowl and play video games. Photo by Jennifer Roybal Continued from page 11 We hit a lot of clubs throughout the month, but I guess you could say we always ended up at the Dash Inn. It was a great place because you ' d always run into tons of people you knew. They had a great jukebox and the beer was cheap. When I was out with the girls for a relaxing evening, we usually headed over to Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. It had a variety of restaurants to choose from and a great theater. A typical sight on any given night was to see about 10 to 15 girls at Express Yogurt. They specialized on the girl who was watching what she ate by having a lot of fat-free snacks. Although ASU had a bad rap for students not studying, believe me it was not uncommon for us to spend more than a few nights a week in the library. My stresses high academics which was great because it kept me on my toes. Plus, I knew I wouldn ' t ever have to study alone. Since most college students were always broke, we couldn ' t go out for a rad evening all the time. I was fortunate because I lived with my best friend so even cleaning the apartment on a Monday night ended up to be something out of an old " I Love Lucy " show. Laundry was always a big project, and the dishes were probably everyone ' s least favorite thing to do night or day! On Sundays, when all the domestic stuff was done, my roommate, Jamie, and I always went out to dinner together. It was the time to relax and gear up for another week. The night closed with a light workout and a late-night chat before falling to sleep. by andrea najor and roybal above —Looking through the racks at Zia Records, students socialize and shop for their favorite music.

Editor ' s Note: Marlene Naubert was a graduate student at ASU. She told her story about what it was like to return to ASU as an alumnus. These are her own words about the activities surrounding Homecoming. Homecoming! What could be greater than returning to one ' s alma mater for a week of reminiscing, carousing and one-upping each other ' s accomplishments. I ' d have no problem with the reminiscing, and I ' ve always prided myself on my ability to carouse, but there I was, still living at home with my mom and two dogs. What could I possibly say to " one-up " my fellow alumni - something like, " Yeah, I ' d work more overtime, but Mom says the dogs need to be walked? " This was going to be miserable, but I had a promise to fulfill. Before I graduated from ASU last May, I swore to myself I ' d return for Homecoming every year. Anyway, as a past (and lifelong) member of the ASU Sun Devil Marching Band, it was my duty to return and march pregame with the rest of the Alumni Band. I fondly remembered being in my band uniform on Homecoming and sitting in the stands watching the alumni attempt to recreate their past. By the time they reached the end of the show, they were wheezing and panting. They ' d ask, " When did they lengthen the field? " We ' d pat them on their aching backs and try to suppress the laughter. Now it was my turn. As the drum major blew the whistle for the step-off, I raised my cymbals and crashed as if my life depended on it. As a matter of fact, about halfway through the show, I was sure the only thing keeping me from passing out was the ear-piercing sound of those infernal cymbals! But was I going to let my pain show? No way! No one was going to pat my aching back! Although marching pregame wasn ' t as easy as it once was, I was handling it a lot better than some of my older, more accomplished counterparts. Sometimes the best " one-ups " come from living at home, walking the dogs. by marlene e. naubert above — Smiling for the camera, 1992 Homecoming King and Queen Brad Snyder and Carmen Kreuger take their royal walk at halftime.

Chad told his story to Spark Yearbook copywriter Renee Caruss. These are his own words about his relationship with Natasha during the 1992-93 school year. I saw this beautiful blonde. She was short, petite; something out of Vogue magazine. She seemed quiet and a little shy, but I had to ask her out. She was from Colorado; I was from New Jersey. We were from two different sides of the map, but I didn ' t care. All that mattered to me was that she would say " yes, " and we would have a date. I found out that her name was Natasha Johnson. Finally I asked her out, and she said yes! We both went to school at ASU, and we both had the same major, business, so our interests clicked right from the What I loved about Natasha was her personality and the way we remained friends through just about anything. We had our little fights now and then, but nothing major. I was really beginning to see my world with a new perspective. Balancing school and a girlfriend was no easy task. I thought about Natasha a lot and concentrating on school was tough. I received cards from her almost every day, and I had flowers left at my door. She was the sweetest person I had ever met! So how did I keep my mind on school? We both had the same majors so that helped because we shared ideas and studied together. We also wanted an education so our priority was to graduate. Our friends really admired our relationship because we managed to keep it together for so long. What was our secret? Communication. We talked to each other about everything. Friendship was another key thing about our relationship. Our friendship bond was what really counted and what should count in any relationship chad marschel caruss above— Listening to Chad Marschel ' s views on their relationship, Natasha Johnson looks on.

Natasha told her story to Spark copywriter Renee Caruss. These are her own words about her relationship with Chad during the 1992-93 school year. When I saw Chad Marschel, I thought he was real cute. He had this shiny blon d hair and the most gorgeous eyes ever! I was infatuated, and I hoped he would ask me out. He had such a neat personality, and I just hoped that he would talk to me. Finally, the day came and we met through friends. I was so happy he wanted to be with me. There was nothing else I could think about. We both went to school at ASU, and we really liked it here. I ' m from Colorado so since Chad and I lived so far apart, school gave us a chance to be together. We both had the same We spent a lot of time and playing the sports we liked. We both were business majors which helped because we related to each other a lot better. We tried to keep academics in sync with our relationship because our goals were important to us. Our friends were very important to us also. They encouraged our two- year relationship and admired us. We had our small disagreements, but we managed to pull through with little trouble. Communication was the most important part of our relationship. I had a lot of fun times with Chad. He gave me flowers and cards, but the sweetest thing he did for me was took me out to dinner for Valentine ' s Day. Friendship was another important aspect in our relationship. We listened to each other and helped each other out. Our friends felt that we were a couple to envy because a lot of times, people get bored and tired of a relationship. We kept it together that long because we had excellent and a wonderful friendship. If you have this in a relationship, nothing can separate you. by natasha Johnson renee caruss left — Telling writer Renee Caruss about her relationship with Chad Marschel, Natasha Johnson explains their secret for staying together.

Photo by Gina Dowden am very proud of mexican heritage " Editor ' s Note: Mark Martinez was an ASU student. Mark told his story about the challenges of maintaining ethnic identity on a predominately white campus. Mark told his story to Sun Devil Spark Yearbook copywriter Renee Caruss. Race was a complicated issue. Wherever you went you were confronted with the issue. If you filled out applications for school or jobs, you had to fill in your ethnic background. I was very proud of my Mexican heritage. I was a freshman and a part of MECHA. I was involved in the community and participated in extra-curricular activities. It was stereotypical of people to think that ASU had a lot of white, rich students. I focused on the real issues. We were all there for one reason: to get a good education. No one was above anyone else. We should have all been about our goals in life and what the future was to bring. ASU had an excellent academic image and a wonderful environment for studying. We should have all taken advantage of it and used it. There were plenty of tutors and counseling available. I didn ' t feel that non-white students were treated differently. Professors didn ' t base your grades on the color of your skin; it was the ability to which you could perform and to the degree which you excelled that they graded. You had to work for what you earned, as you did in anything in life. A lot of hateful words were expressed concerning race. If we would have all worked together and tried to clean up the streets and worked within the communities helping each other, then race would not have been such a complicated issue. Everyone had an ethnic identity at ASU and should have been proud of it. We should have shared our cultures and learned things from each other. by mark martinez and renee caruss above — Reviewing their books, Mark Martinez and Jose Martinez prepare for their next class. Ethnic identity at ASU was a situation all students had to deal with. Photo by Rick Escalante right — Taking time out for a game of pool, Mark Martinez hangs out at the Memorial Union. Martinez was a member of MECHA and felt that the students at ASU were treated equally, regardless of their race. Photo by Rick Escalante Editor ' s Note: Suzanne Luber was a student at ASU. She told her story about what it meant to be more than just a number here at ASU to Spark Yearbook copywriter Julie Reuvers. These are her own words on the social aspects of being a student. As a resident of the Washington, D.C. suburbs, I always went to school submerged with many different cultures, but at ASU there was a much friendlier atmosphere. As a volunteer in the ASU Sports Information Office, it was not unusual for me to spend 20 hours per week helping out in the office and recording statistics at sporting events. I loved to be busy, and enjoyed walking around campus, seeing people that I knew, and being able to say " Hi " to them. Familiar faces were comforting at such a large university, and they gave me a sense of belonging. I also found that socializing had its advantages, especially when I was elected vice president of the Sonora Hall Council at the start of my freshman year. Along with reporting sports at KASR Radio, these were small ways I got my feet on the ground. Soon I became a member of the Student Admissions Team. Through START, I brought the student perspective to information sessions with prospective students. Although I didn ' t get paid in dollars, I felt that a smile or a simple " thank-you " meant a lot. I liked letting people from other parts of the country know just how much I enjoyed ASU. As a part of START ' s outreach program, I went back to my hometown of Potomac, Maryland, to talk about ASU. I looked forward to the day when I saw someone on Palm Walk that I had spoken with during an admissions appointment. I was just hoping to make a difference at ASU. suzanne luber Julie above—Looking out onto the field at Sun Devil Stadium, Suzanne Luber gets a break from volunteering in the Sports Information Office.

They told their story on what it was like to meet their rock idols, KISS. This is in their own words. Rogers and Hammerstein. Lennon and McCartney. Page and Plant. You will probably recognize these names as famous songwriting duos; now let us add another pair to the list ...Stanley and Simmons. WHO? Oh yeah, the guys in KISS! OK, so maybe songs like " Rock and Roll All Nite” and " Lick It Up " aren ' t chock full of heavy philosophical metaphors; however, you must agree that KISS is a part of Americana. After all, who could forget such 70s staples as lunchboxes bearing the band ' s likeness, and ...DOLLS! What, you don ' t remember? What abo ut that wonderful TV-movie " KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park? " And didn ' t every kid on your block just have to own a KISS comic book (printed in authentic KISS blood)? See, you remember. Well, it ' s not like we were members of the KISS Army (fan club) or anything, but when the band made their way to the America West Arena on their most recent tour, we thought we might go and check out the show for nostalgia ' s sake. NOT! We had tickets, dammit, and we were gonna be there! We made our way to Will Call to pick up our tickets, we were late as usual, no thanks to Marlene, and lo and behold, like a gift from God, were two backstage passes left by a friend. We finally found the ticket lobby where we were supposed to meet our friend and waited in the catering room for ...THEM!

Naubert printed in authentic KISS blood " Continued from page 25 Obviously, the band had already eaten from the looks of the tablecloths. I wish we had. Those left-overs were looking mighty good! But, we were too excited to think about food. We were about to meet the rock idols of our youth. Just looking at where they had eaten was enough. We had a chance to relax so we wouldn ' t trip over our own tongues. Then the moment arrived. The ailing drummer, Eric Singer, walked in first in his JC Penney black terrycloth He made his rounds, and his illness made him forget about his previous experience with Marlene ' s mom the last time he was here. He signed a couple of things for us, ignoring the on the floor. Then Bruce Kulick strolled in. He asked me if I wanted him to sign and I just stood there like a blithering idiot. Then, the man I ' d been waiting to see, the one with the tongue longer than mine ... Gene Simmons arrived. He signed my KISS condom and told me to use it well! Gene hath Paul followed shortly behind. He may be close to my father ' s age, but I could go for an older man if it was him. We tried to keep our cool, and didn ' t fail as badly as we thought we might. Did I look like a fool? Need I ask? They didn ' t stay for very long, because they were running late. What a coincidence. I wonder if Gene would let me borrow his platform boots - they ' d add five inches of height. by jill harn isch and marlene e. naubert above — Singing " Forever and Ever, Amen, " country music star Randy Travis performs for the Arizona State Fair ' s full house.

She related her story about seeing one of her favorite groups perform at the State Fair. These are her own words. For five bucks, I had it made. Like every year, my sister and I go to the Arizona State Fair in search of some good concerts. This year, the B-52 ' s performed their wacky tunes at the Veterans ' Memorial Coliseum. We had perfect seats. Since she is the smaller of the two of us, she squeezed through the crowd to hurry and get good seats. We were so close to the front that we were practically backstage. As you would expect, the stage was set up like they were under the sea. Obviously, an appropriate set for the song " Rock Lobster. " I was surprised that the Coliseum was not as full as expected. Nevertheless, many fans wrapped around the sides of the building waiting to hear their fa- vorite songs. To get the crowd to sit down, the lights dimmed. The show was about to begin. As the lights went back up, there was Fred, Kate, Julie and Keith, ready to give a great performance to all those who attended the fair. Fred Schneider, lead male vocal, looked like a lemon in his bright yellow suit. To add to the group ' s pizazz, he wore a purple shirt underneath. I think many people went just to see Kate Pierson. Her famous voice, as heard on numerous REM songs, added to the excitement of the crowd. Her flaming red hair gave her much deserved attention. We also got to see Keith Strickland and Julie Cruise. We got to see her the most because she stood at the microphone on our side for the entire concert. Actually, she did " Roam " around the stage for one song. Overall, the coliseum was like a " Love Shack " for all the Arizona B-52 ' s fans. It was an uplifting experience maybe because I could not forget those platform shoes the girls were wearing by kim kaan above — Dancing to the song " Roam, " Kate Pierson of the B-52 ' s performs at the 1992 Arizona State Fair.

She told her story about what it was like to be pol itically active in the Democratic party. These are her own words. I am not taking my Kerrey for President bumper sticker off my car. Not yet. I ' m still quite proud of it, and it makes me happy to think that my dream came true; Senator Bob Kerrey, a Democrat from Nebraska, ran for president of the United States. I haven ' t taken down my Clinton Gore poster either, and I am still very pleased to see their bumper sticker on the tail end of cars in the valley, despite the fact I did not support Clinton at first nor did I want Tennessee Senator Al Gore to be his running mate. Although Kerrey didn ' t get far (he was the first Democrat to drop out of the race), I can ' t say I am disappointed with the outcome of the election. Honestly, my only choices were the Democratic candid ates—I am a Democrat and, although I don ' t agree with all of their party I agree with the platform even less. I ' ve spent some of the last four years in response to some of George Bush ' s actions. Vice President Dan Quayle was no comfort, either. I would like to experience what America will be like with a Democratic president. I ' d like to see how the liberal ideology can change this country. Clinton and Gore have impressed me a great deal with one simple yet very kind act. The evening news reported in August that Clinton and Gore had spent a day building a house with former President Jimmy Carter through Carter ' s organization, Habitat for Humanity. Clinton and Gore ' s participation deeply moved me. Perhaps their involvement was politically motivated, but politically motivated or not, I am very proud of them both. I sincerely hope that Clinton will bring about change for the good of America. He was not my first choice, but he ' ll do. by Jody halverson above— Speaking in support of the Clinton Gore campaign, Democratic Senate candi- date Claire Sargent participates in a rally on Cady Mall.

Halverson enjoyed taking part in political discussions among her friends, Photo by Craig Valenzuela Editor ' s Note: Bill Tierney, a junior majoring in Business Management, was chairman of the Campus Republicans. The following is his story about being a political activist as told to Sun Devil Spark copywriter Karen Jannuzzi. Nine members and myself attended the Republican National Convention at the Astrodome in Houston. It was an extraordinary event and learning experience. Our major obstacle was raising the 1,500. But we did. The drive to Houston was long and very uncomfortable. We started Saturday morning at 3 o ' clock as a KTSP-TV Channel 10 camera recorded our struggle to get everything and everybody into two vehicles. Things went great for the first four hours of the trip. Then, one of our vehicles died. We left it at a rural service station with a man named Bob. This left ten people and ten sets of luggage to ride for the remaining 20 hours in a station wagon! I kept a day-by-day diary for the Arizona Republic from a delegate ' s perspective. I also had a daily interview with two local radio stations. I called once a day with a report. Walking into the Astrodome for the first time doubled my heart- beat the stadium was decorated like a political cathedral. Huge banners with the Republican elephant down from the ceiling. At the front, a dignified blue podium was set off with white stars and flanked by two huge walls of television screens. I believe the most incredible speeches were given by Ronald Reagan and Pat Buchanan. Arizona ' s designated place on the floor was just to the left of the podium. This intensified the feelings of pride and patriotism that I was already feeling. As we packed ourselves like sardines for the ride home, we discussed that no matter how uncomfortable the ride was, it was definitely worth it. by bill tierney and karen jannuzzi above— Speaking to the people gathered outside the capital, Vice President Dan Quale campaigns for the Republican party.

Photo by George Gibbons political activism do need prove how normal Editor ' s note: Missy Keast was a deaf student at ASU. She told her story about living in a hearing world and gaining an education in spite of communication barriers and other difficulties. These are her own words. I was very scared to go to ASU from the beginning. Because I am deaf, I knew I would be looked upon as different. My friend told me to " try to think as if you are going to the shopping mall. " When you go to the mall, you go in to look for what you want, and don ' t worry about other people. One day I went to class and sat quietly before the professor and waited for the interpreter to come in and start the lecture. In my view, students saw me and assumed that I was just another hearing student. When the interpreter started signing to me, students were stunned and amazed at how I communicated through my hands. Some students wondered how I was able to do things like them. They don ' t realize that I don ' t need my hearing to function, I use my eyes to do everything. Since I had to have an interpreter in class with me, breaking the barrier was difficult. I found an advantage to working in small classroom groups. The groups forced each student to communicate and made sure that everyone got involved. I enjoy socializing with hearing people because they carry so much information from what they hear from the news or radio in the car. I absorb more knowledge when I talk with them. I read newspapers for information but it is still not enough. I learn from hearing people about diversified cultures in America and on the ASU campus. By making a n effort, other students feel more comfortable around me and I feel very normal because I believe in myself as a strong and intelligent person. I don ' t need to prove to them how normal I am. I go to school and learn just like them. I experienced difficulties with the administration at first, because they knew very little about the deaf culture. I was the only deaf person attending ASU in 1987 and I refused to use my voice because I cannot hear my voice. I wanted to represent my cultural language. Now that I am visible in the social and academic aspects of the university, people are able to understand more about the deaf culture. ASU gave me the opportunity to succeed. by melissa keast above — Signing on the lighthouse steps, Missy Keast and Holly Wilson talk. Wilson worked at the Disabled Student Resources as an interpreter.

Photo by Amie Madden Editor ' s Note: Michael Sullivan was a senior theater major. The following is a story about his experience as a performing arts student as told to Sun Devil Spark copywriter Ramona Meraz. ASU called me literally five days before my freshman year and offered me a Maroon and Gold Scholarship. I wasn ' t happy at ASU at first, but once I got involved and started getting my name known, it was great. Before I knew it, I was happy. I worked in more than 20 shows in three years. As a theater major, you hardly got any sleep. I was busy daily f rom 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. with rehearsals, work, and classes. in the performing arts kept the same schedule. There was a communal goal that we all had as We wanted the audience to leave with a good feeling. You had to think of college as an experimental playground where you could make mistakes. It was a place where you could experiment and fail because people understood that you weren ' t a professional. My best experience was directing " Reckless. " When you directed, you had to transfer all the acting knowledge to someone else. It was an art itself. I learned to work with so many different people. Performing at the college level was so different than high school, because in college you were transferred into a world where anything went. You couldn ' t do anything avant garde in high school. It was typical for ASU to be on the cutting edge of performing arts. I concentrated more on dancing and singing. You had to have the spirit of theater to do this. You had to be temporarily insane to do theater. You really had to love it and be comfortable with it. It was important to realize that you never got your message across to everyone. But if just one person in the audience got it, then it was worth it. by michael and meraz above — Listening to input from fellow cast members, Michael Sullivan prepares for another performance.

Naubert. These are her own words. I started at ASU in the fall of 1988. I had heard ASU had a pretty good chemical engineering program; plus, the in-state tuition was cheaper than going anywhere else. A major like that involves some intense studying, so I often found myself getting up earlier than I had to on weekdays and weekends, even if I had stayed out late the night before. I had to give up some stuff, but it was really a matter of organizing my time. It ' s much easier now, because you go along and learn time but by the time you do, it ' s your fourth year of college and you ' re almost finished! I worked at an on-campus job in one of the labs. It worked out really well for me because they were flexible with my hours. Also, it was a chemistry lab and I thought it would be good experience for me. At the time I started the job, I thought I wanted to go into chemistry, and I liked the idea of with marine animals. Although I did have to spend a lot of time studying, I still made time for recreation. For me, this came in the form of going out to clubs and seeing some of my favorite local bands, like Dead Hot Workshop and Zig Zag Black. I tried to make it to some concerts, too. I mean, how could I miss Lollapalooza or the Dead? Since I left marching band after four years, I found a creative outlet in writing (or attempting to write) short stories and poetry. I don ' t do anything with it, but it ' s fun and a great stress release. Do I think I " made the grade " ? Yeah, sure! by joy bell marlene naubert naubert above— Surrounded by stacks of books, Joy Bell tries to concentrate on her studies before taking a major exam.

She told her story about what is was like to graduate from ASU. These are her own words about the events surrounding her graduation day. I planned my graduation day to a " T. " I would spend a leisurely morning doing my makeup and dressing in the perfect outfit. Later, my mother would set my mortarboard atop my head, and I ' d enter the UAC (University Activity Center) with my peers, ready to accept my degree. I ' d look at my parents to see them beaming proudly. And that ' s exactly what happened... NOT! As it turned out, my hair had " the frizzies " and my makeup, applied with a shaky hand, looked like a child had done it. Then, the perfect outfit was too long for my robe. There was only one solution: shopping! I picked up my best friend, Jill Harnisch, and drove like a to Fiesta Mall. Jill and I tore apart Robinson ' s until we found an appropriate shorts suit that I wore out of the store. Once we got to the UAC and met with my fellow student publications graduates, we were finally able to sit down, I was relieved. After the ceremony, I had to drive to the convocation at Gammage, but Jill and I had the misfortune of being rear-ended while turning into the parking lot. While waiting for the police to arrive, one of the drivers wanted to take a group picture of the people involved as a memento of the incident. Thanks, but no thanks. I finally made it to my convocation, a bit disheveled and slightly tearful, but by this time, I didn ' t care. My dad could even take pictures someday I ' d laugh about this. The weird thing was that even though my graduation day was made in hell, going through the ceremony was truly a special experience. It was about being a part of something bigger than just the Class of ' 92. It was about being a Sun Devil. marlene e. naubert left — Showing his Sun Devil Pride, a graduate bears Sparky on his mortarboard. Many students used their caps to express themselves.

Finding a place to live on campus was a task that most students didn ' t look forward to. But the residence facilities at ASU offered more than a roof over their heads. It was A PLACE FOR YOU to socialize, learn, educate and find a common ground with fellow students.

The African American Cultural Hall was a unique environment created for all students. Photo by Gina Dowden To educate, inform, and celebrate all that surrounded African-American culture were the intentions that lead to the creation of Umoja Hall, ASU ' s first cultural residence hall. Umoja Hall contained 30-35 students in its first year. It was an unique environment created for all students from all backgrounds, to live within and to learn about the African and African-American culture. This experience was translated through dances, symposiums, guest speakers, group mural paintings and an effort to establish a library African and African-American Umoja Hall was still growing and developing. " It ' s on the cutting edge for other interest houses such as Native Americans, and Asians, " staff mentor Bernie Jackson said. The students of Umoja Hall were not only exposed to culture, they participated in social projects to better the community. RA Lauren Guyton explained, " We ' ll be volunteering our services to help the poor with a food and clothes drive, along with counseling juveniles. " The opening of Umoja Hall many reactions around the ASU community, good and bad. Umoja residents had to deal with that pressure. " The challenge of having to deal with the negative publicity has brought us all closer together, " Guyton said. " We ' re here to stay, and I think we ' ll make a positive impact on the university.

HELPING SOMEONE OUT Every semester United Blood came to ASU to get donations of blood. Mobile units were positioned throughout the campus and stations were set up in the residence halls to make it more convenient for the residents who lived on campus to donate blood. The feeling of helping someone was the main reason most students chose to donate blood during the drive at ASU. And because America ' s favorite word was " free, " the free food was also an incentive. " It ' s so easy to give, and you get free food, " said Tracy Dudman, a RA at Manzanita. Some people gave blood every year. " I do it every year because I figure since I have it to give, I might as well help someone else, " said Kris Raymond, a RA at Manzanita Hall. " I feel good knowing that I can help someone. " Thanks to concerned residents in Cholla and Manzanita, they were the top two halls for donating blood. According to Raymond, the key to having a good turn out for donations was having great sponsors. Cholla had 55 pints of Ben Jerry ' s ice cream donated for their residents who gave blood. " Give a p int, get a pint " was the motto that sent residents racing to give blood. At Manzanita, Dominos Pizza delivered pizzas every hour while their blood drive was in progress. With a population of more than 42,000 ASU was the largest United Blood Services had on their collection list. With the of Tucson, the service supplied all of Arizona.

The word around campus about the closing of PV West was that it was closed in 1991 to remove asbestos from the building. According to Mohammad Madjidi, design for residence life, the main PV West was closed was due to lack of student enrollment to stay at the hall. Since the hall was already closed, Madjidi said it seemed logical to use the closure as a bonus to fix up the hall and update the safety of the living space. Asbestos abatement was done in the hall as well as the updating of the fire alarm safety system. " It is not that the hall was unsafe, and none of the halls are unsafe, it is just that we had the opportunity to upgrade the facilities, " said Madjidi. As of the fall semester 1992, PV West was still not at its maximum occupancy. The seven-story high-rise building on University Drive could accommodate 405 students. At the end of the semester the structure had only five floors open and housed 180 students. Even with the reopening of one dorm facility, two others were forced to close due to lack of enrollment. Residence Life officials had hoped that students would want to live on campus in the halls and that the of all the halls would increase. With the closure of Hayden and Irish Halls, that hope didn ' t seem to be nearing reality.

The excuses are endless, " The gym is too far away; I don ' t have time between school and work; it ' s to much of a hassle to eat properly; " the list goes on and on. Manzanita Hall came up with a so- lution to cure the majority of woes. It ' s the Wellness center, located on the 12th floor. The center hosted 49 live-in students allowing them to workout on the floor where there was an exercise room. The students had access to such as stairmasters, stationary bicycles and rowing machines. " Everything they have to offer is in line with my lifestyle, " explained Jon Spiros, a resident on the floor. The students set reasonable goals and as a community helped each other reach them. Along with the physical workout, the dorm supplied and fat-free meals. The floor ' s atmosphere was geared towar ds a better lifestyle. The expense was equal to living in a regular dorm, however the students got an edge on fitness with little or no because everyone around them was shooting for the same goal, said Tracy Dudman, resident assistant. Fitness communities within the dorms have been springing up all over the country because of student The Wellness Community has been in operation for two years and as resident assistant, Brian Marshall said the interest continues to rise for those students seeking a healthy lifestyle.

Standing desolate, Irish Hall closed its doors at the end of the 1992 spring semester. Downturn in and the high of students attracted to off-campus housing forced the hall to close. Photo by Jason Kantrowitz Where is everybody? Where did everybody go? The closing of two of the four halls in the Center Complex left people asking those questions and many more. Was it lack of funds, lack of interest, or lack of residents that led to the closing of Hayden and Irish Halls? James Rund, dean of Student and Residential Life had the answers. He said the downturn in enrollment and the high number of students to off-campus housing forced the halls to close. Both Hayden and Irish Halls were closed indefinitely, leaving the complex with only Best and McClintock halls. " There was a downturn in that began last year, " said Dean Rund. " It ' s only short term. We the numbers returning to the we had before 1990. " Renovations were not anticipated. " When we need them again, their will be assessed, " Dean Rund added. Many programs were started to the interest in residence halls. Programs implemented included those for graduate students and students. A special campus community for first-year students was also slated. " We want to help students get started in the right way, and help them become successful here at the said Dean Rund. " We want to encourage all students to get involved in the campus communities, not just those living in the halls.

Photo Courtesy of Best Hall If you were a student with a knack for painting or dancing, or if your biggest concern was cleaning up the earth, ASU had slated a place to live that was tailor made to fit those needs. Campus Communities, groups that live together on a residence hall floor to study topics of special interest, were the future of ASU. In addition to the two communities that were up and running, another four communities were to be created by December 1993. They included the Environment Community, the Fine and Performing Arts Community, the Global Awareness Community and the Native American Culture Communities were open to students of any age or ethnicity. Umoja Hall, an studies community, and the Public Service Community began this fall. Umoja Hall was located in Octotillo Hall and had 19 The Public Service was located in Best Hall and had about 30 members. " The idea is to increase the sense of belongi ng to the University, to increase mentoring opportunities and to generally allow students to more fully engage with education, " said Robert Hinks, associate professor of and director of the The Campus Communities project was one of seven recommendations from the Task Force on Undergraduate Education at ASU in 1991.

" People are actually going to be living in halls and will be by an environment where they can influence those areas.

Youngsters from the Guadalupe Club, an organization for children, were the recipients of the terror that echoed through the walls. " It was a lot of fun. The kids really enjoyed it, " said Gretchen Longanecker, the activities vice at Manzanita. Since it was such a smash with the children, they opened the haunted house up to the public. At PV East and Mariposa, the handed out candy to trick-or- treaters from the Boy Scouts of America who had exclusive rights to the floors that night. After the children were gone, Mariposa residents rented the scariest horror movies they could find and had a movie marathon in the lobby.

There were 40 bales of hay, many mugs of root beer and near-beer, decked with toy pistols, sheriff ' s badges and boots and spurs all throughout Sonora Center to give the " barn " the touch of authenticity.

But the response from the residents was — overwhelmingly positive. came from surrounding halls and had a good time. The barn dance was to become an annual event. As part of the event, professional dancers were brought in to help teach the residents how to do the latest dances from the two-step to the electric slide.

" The resident assistants were put on the hot seat and asked how they would respond to such social problems as suicide and eating disorders. " We do this so that mistakes can be done (before actually having to deal with the situation) and questions Perry Mason, a RA at Sonora Center said. Not every situation discussed involved life-threatening issues; some included under-age alcohol possession and breaking quiet hours. " We learn general techniques, and that helps people, " Sonora RA Robin Raudsep said. However, the job of advising, and planning programs for 30 or more residents on the floor still remained tough for RAs when the training sessions were over. " Work is not always fun be cause we try to help the students, and they don ' t see it that way, " said. Heather Scott, a RA at Palo Verde East, said benefits RAs enjoyed through the year helped to compensate for the long hours.

Frank Baum ' s The of Oz is accurate, but each year the residence halls strived to make ASU feel as much like home as possible for the students living in them. Cable was installed to the residence halls for the first time before the fall term. Students had requested the for years. Administrative changes, budget allocations and an agreeable price from the cable company allowed for the amenity. All residence halls received it except for a few floors of Palo Verde West. The hall was originally scheduled to remain closed for the term. When the decision was made to open it, there were not enough materials to the project. The floors were to receive it before the spring semester. The cost of the cable was absorbed in the budget allocated for the residence halls. And it came solely from the students ' residence halls fees. David Stephen, associate director of Life, felt the general public didn ' t understand where the money was from to support the project. " There were no tax dollars or uni- versity money used for this, " Stephen said. " Dimension Cable financed this project. " Although the cable provided a great number of entertainment options for the students, it also featured several educational programs as well. In the future, Residence Life will have its own channel that will help unify the programs that each hall A specific program can be played, and all halls will be able to view it at the same time. No one can replace one ' s home, but Residence Life made it a more experience to live in the dorms by ensuring the installation of cable into the halls.

They were ready. They would only miss home when the money ran out. Then, thoughts of mom ' s cooking, and fights with brothers and sisters seeped in. They were also a little nervous about having to face the world without their parents being closeby. Organizations were present on campus to help ease the transition of from home to on-campus living because homesickness was a normal feeling, even for upper classmen. The Residence Hall Association was one group that helped students adjust to their new home. RHA was a self-governing body of students for the residence halls. Its main objective was to serve those students who opted to live on campus in university housing. Several activities were planned throughout the year to educate and entertain students. Self-awareness workshops focused on topics such as sexual awareness and alcohol abuse. RHA also concentrated on individual problems within each hall. These ranged from personal problems with roommates to working on developing the best facilities possible. Social included assisting ASU Greek organizations with their carnival, to Disneyland, and appearing on " The Price is Right. " RHA was comprised of these officers and eight to twelve representatives from each hall.

Students could live in apartment-style housing or live in a high-rise building looking over University Drive. Suite and community-style living were also available. There was opportunity for a single, double or triple occupancy room. Accommodations were also made for disabled students. Residence hall living was a unique living opportunity. It brought students together from many different ethnic and social backgrounds. Opportunity for leadership experience was also possible through Residence Life, the Residence Hall Association, Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council. ASU ' s main goal for on-campus was to provide a safe, clean, economical and convenient living environment for students while attending college. " The three best things I like about living in a dorm are the community feeling, good friends that you make and being close to class, " stated Wendy Enoch a RA and resident of Mariposa Hall.

Bill Tierney of the Republican organization said their group had a tent on campus during the semester and registered over 500 voters. They brought in speakers for their weekly meetings and on Saturday worked for phone banks. Their main focus was to register students to vote and plug students into Republican campaigns. Tierney said the focus of their group was to " take students with republican conservative leanings and provide them with the leadership framing to make them effective in the political process. " On the eve of the election, the group met at 10:00 and with approximately 35 people, broke off into teams and put up signs for Congressman Rhodes. The group covered the majority of East Valley precincts for one or another. Eight or nine teams covered a huge area. When the group arrived at headquarters at District 6 of the Congressional candidates, Tierney said, " There was lots of cheering. Most had never been involved in an election before.

The cheerleaders played an part in the spirit of ASU. Photo by Scott Burgus The fans of the Arizona State sports teams had a lot to cheer about. The football team had a new leader, as well as men ' s tennis, track and field and men ' s golf, whose coach left to coach former ASU standout Phil Mickelson. Archery and badminton continued to set the standard by which all other schools followed. The men ' s and women ' s swimming and diving programs maintained their competitive edge in the toughest in America, the PAC. The women ' s volleyball and basketball teams surprised everyone. Women ' s were top 10 finishers at nationals, whereas the men gutted out an injury-riddled season. The men ' s basketball team, led by Mario Bennet, finally beat the hated U of A, and the baseball team sent some players off to the major leagues. For the future, all the programs have the potential for national prominence. They had only begun to scratch the surface. By Claude Jackson on the field, George and Brian Ryder embrace.

This was the classic one-small-step-for-man, one-giant-leap-fo r-ASU kind of victory. When the Sun Devils swarmed on the field before the rival game with U of A, ASU senior Gavin Hill planted the Sun Devil flag into the cold ground at Arizona Call it staking one ' s territory. When ASU defensive tackle Israel Stanley sacked UofA quarterback George Malauulu late in the fourth quarter, he got up filled with and emotional intensity and waved to the 58,095 fans at Arizona Stadium. Before this one even got started, there was animosity. The two teams took the field across from each other before the start of the game. The Sun Devils and Wi ldcats exchanged " pleasantries " and began to form a rumble line. But fortunately, officials and coaches broke it up before things got out of control. Obviously, this was not exactly a friendly rivalry. The game turned into a war of attrition two nationally ranked defenses. The defense was ranked fifth and the Sun was sixth. And for three quarters of football, there were only six points put on the board — for UofA. From then on, it boiled down to one play. That ' s all it took. With less than 15 minutes left in the game, tailback Kevin Galbreath took a pitch from Grady Benton. He went left and hit a line of Wildcat defenders, bounced back and forth like a pinball and stayed on his feet. He then went 51 yards for a touchdown. The score capped a 73-yard, five-play drive that decided the game. " This is a great way to end it, " said ASU wide receiver Eric Guliford. " This is the best victory I have had in my life. " Last year in Sun Devil Stadium, ASU broke a nine-year UofA winning streak. Will there be a new streak, with ASU leading the way? " We were talking about never losing to those guys again, " said Kevin Galbreath. " I am looking forward for great things from this program. " Narrowly missing a tackle, Grady Benton lofts the ball past the onrushing defense. The Sun Devils beat UofA for the second year in a row.

Photo by Scott Burgus Slow starting Devils pull out of the Huskie rut — of much was expected of the Sun in their first game under new Head Coach Bruce Snyder. Afterall, Snyder sent a converted linebacker to quarterback against the defending co-national champions, the Washington Huskies. Result: Washington 31 ASU 7. " Washington is a great team, " said Snyder. " They proved to me why they are one of the top three or four teams in the country. " Less impressed was sophomore tailback Mario Bates. " They didn ' t scare us, " he said. " Washington is not that great. " The Huskies rushing defense certainly was not that great as Bates rushed for 214 yards on 19 carries including an 80-yard bolt up the middle for the Devils ' only score. Leading the charge was senior inside linebacker Brett Wallerstadt. Wallerstadt liked his team ' s new attitude. " I don ' t think anyone quit, " he said, especially him as he led the team with 15 tackles. The offense may have fared better had it not been for numerous penalties and a fourth-string quarterback. Troy Rauer took over in the midst of controversy after only one day of practice. Snyder was impressed with Rauer ' s composure in a " no-win situation. " Asked if this game was a memorable one, Snyder responded, " I ' ll remember this game because, one, it was my first game at ASU and, two, we played hard even though there were a lot of reasons not to this week. " The following week saw ASU hold Louisville to an astonishing 13 total yards as they shutout the Cardinals, 19-0. " It was a great evening for us, " Snyder said. " I had a lot of fun out there. " What made Sny der so giddy was an outstanding defensive effort. " When one player makes a good defensive play, it spreads like wildfire, " he said. The Devils ' defensive fire spread from the team ' s leaders, Kevin Miniefield and Bryan Hooks to gunner Harlen Rashada. " I ' m still stunned, " said Rashada. A person who was more stunned was Louisville quarterback Jeff Brohm as he was sacked 10 times, including four by Rashada in the third quarter Cutting through the defensive line, Mario Bates gives the slip to the Louisville The Cardinals were held to a total of 13 yards for the game.

" By Claude Jackson Crashing to the ground, Brett Wallerstedt brings down his The Nebraska Cornhuskers beat the Devils 24 in the first away game of the season. Photo courtesy of The Daily Nebraskan losses and injuries the first game away from Sun Devil marked the second loss for the ASU Sun Devils as they were humbled by the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Lincoln, 45-24. The Sun Devils outgained the Cornhuskers in virtually every offensive statistical category, but costly penalties and five turnovers took away any chance of beating a national powerhouse of Nebraska ' s caliber. " We can ' t be that inefficient and hope to win games, " said head coach Bruce Snyder. " It doesn ' t matter if we get 1,000 yards; it ' s just not going to happen. " Final stats read: 514 total yards for the Sun Devils to 369 for Nebraska. ASU not only lost an inter-conference game, but lost the services of its best tailback, Mario Bates, who suffered a season-ending injury in the last minute of the game and ended a possible dream season for the 6-2, 206-pound sophomore. After spotting Nebraska 10 points in the first quarter, the Sun Devils finally countered with a 15-yard pass to TE Bryan Rider from Garrick McGee, the team ' s third starting QB in as many weeks. The Cornhuskers put the game out of reach early in the third period when Nebraska stepped to dampen optimism in front of a McGee pass and rumbled 54 yards for a touchdown, making the score 38-10. Grady Benton came in for McGee to mop up the rest of the game. Despite the lopsided score, Snyder remained optimistic about the rest of the season. " We thought in, and I still believe, that we have a chance to be a very good football team, " he said. In its second conference game, ASU came up on the short end of a 30-20 decision against the Oregon Ducks, and for the second week in a row, proved how gracious a visiting guest could be. The absence of Bates was evident. The team managed only 100 yards rushing, less than half of its per game average. " We are a running football team, and if the run does not go, none of the other rhythm falls into place, " Snyder said.

Photo by Steve Wagner At home again, Devils make a come back after two road losses at the hands of the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Oregon Ducks, it was good for the Sun Devils (2-3, 0-2) to get back to the friendly ' ol Sun Devil Stadium. Playing the Pacific Tigers and the Oregon State Beavers didn ' t hurt either. The Sun Devils pummeled an obviously weaker foe, 39-5. No wonder the Pacific Head Coach called the ASU team " scary. " The Tigers were tamed by the passing of redshirt-freshman Grady Benton. He completed 19 of 24 passes for a career-high 265 yards. However, the strong game from Benton and the tenacious defense was overshadowed by the apparent season-ending injury to junior tailback George Montgomery. Each of Montgomery ' s three seasons at ASU have been cut short due to injuries. He was well on his way to 100 yards rushing before the injury, but his replacement kept up the pace. Third-string senior tailback Jerone Davison rushed for a 135 yards. Head coach Bruce Snyder tried to keep his emotions under control, " We really needed a win; we got it, " he said. " But the real downer is the injury [to Montgomery]. Without that, it was an awfully good night. " ASU and Oregon State pitted the basement dwellers in the Pac-10, but after a 40-13 drubbing, the Beavers limped home with another Pac-10 loss while the Sun Devils claimed their first victory and 3-3 record at mid-season. The Sun Devils came out smoking. Before OSU could blink they found themselves in a seemingly insurmountable deficit of 18-0 in the first quarter. The Beavers, led by quarterback Mike Olford, responded with 13 points of their own in the second and third quarters. Benton marched the offense down for a ending with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Eric Guliford. Guliford caught 10 passes for 131 yards, and Benton was 19 of 24 for 190 yards and two touchdowns to Guliford. The defense forced two turnovers that in 14 more points. The final scoring was a 31-yard interception return from linebacker Kendall Rhyne. Davison had his second 100 yard rushing game in a row. He finished with 157 yards on 35 rushing attempts Reaching to receive a pass, Brad McAllister gets some help from Peter Marine. The Devils ' victory over the Beavers was their first win in the Pac-10. Photo by Scott Burgus By Claude Jackson Finding an opening in the field, Kevin Galbreath makes his move. The Devils lost to the State Cougars, 18-20. Photo courtesy of State The Devils break a shut-out record, 20-0 no two games epitomized the up and down season of the ASU Sun Devils like the road matchups against the UCLA Bruins and the Washington State Cougars. One road win put the Sun Devils in the record books, and one road loss basically put them out of the bowl picture. To summarize the Sun Devils ' win against the Bruins, one only had to look at a single three- digit figure: 245. For 245 games and 21 years UCLA would always score, but no more as ASU rolled to a 20-0 victory. A stifling defense and a ball control offense, led by the team ' s most unlikely hero, were the key ingredients to win number four in seven games for Head Coach Bruce Snyder. The college football gods scripted one beautiful story. Not only was a monumentous record snapped, but the leader was a hometown kid who had become lost in the running back shuffle for the past five years. However, Kevin Galbreath never lost hope, and the fourth stringer was called upon to carry the load after Jerone Davison went down with an ankle sprain. And carry he did, for a school record 44 times for 183 yards. There was the peak, and here comes the valley. ASU lost to a Washington State team that they should have beaten, 20-18. QB Grady Benton finished with modest of 15 for 30 for 181 yards and one touchdown, but three interceptions killed three important drives. With two missed field goals by Mike Richey to add to that, there was little wonder why they lost. The team also saw an opponent they had rarely seen before, the cold weather. Like so many other games the held tough, and one particular player exemplified the team ' s toughness on this day. Junior linebacker Shante Carver dominated the Cougars as he had done before. The two matches between the Cougars and the Sun Devils resulted in eight sacks recorded by Carver, and this game added one more to that total. However, Carver ' s play did not stop there. He blocked a field goal attempt and a punt, recovered a fumble, and deflected a pass attempt that led to an interception by lineman Greg Kordas. But herculean efforts fell short to Mother Nature ' s temperature on this day. Tackling the UCLA Bryan Hooks forces a fumble. The Devils shut-out the Bruins, stopping their record of scoring in every game.

Photo by Suzanne Kyer The Devils see a bright spot for Homecoming Halloween was never meant to be this scary. The score read 23-13 in favor of the USC Trojans (5-1-1, 4-1) over ASU (4-4, 2-3), but it was more like Curtis Conway defeated ASU 14-13. Conway, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound Mr. caught a 31-yard touchdown pass against the Devils ' toughest defensive back, Kevin Minniefield, in the first half. After spotting USC a 14-0 lead in the first half, the Sun Devils started to close the gap. On a fourth-and-one play, tight end Bob Brasher caught a pass on the fly and sprinted 30 yards more for a touchdown. Brasher caught six passes for a career high 137 yards. The Trojans ' next series resulted in an interception by cornerback Lenny McGill. Place-kicker Mike Richey nailed a 46-yard field goal to cut the lead to 14- 10. Then Conway struck again. The ensuing kickoff bobbled off a USC receiver and rolled into the hands of Conway. He picked up the ball at the corner of the Sun Devil 5-yard line, eluded three would be tacklers, and accelerated. Ninety- five yards later the score was 21-10, the was dramatically switched over to the favor, and the game was decided. But ASU had their own weapons and they were unleashed against the California Golden Bears on Homecoming night. In the 28-12 whooping of Head Coach Bruce Snyder ' s former team, Eric Guliford returned an 89-yard punt for an " untouched " down. Guliford, accustomed to breaking tackles, needed only to follow his blockers in route to the fourth- longest punt return in ASU history. Tailback Kevin Galbreath reached the 100- yard plateau in just 16 carries. Galbreath, a fourth- stringer at the start of the season, had more than 300 rushing yards in three games. The main objective for the senior-dominated defense was to stop all-American tailback Russell White. Thanks to Brett Wallerstadt and White could only muster up 45 yards on the ground. But seniors were not the only bright spots. Redshirt freshman quarterback Grady Benton, the top rated passer in the Pac-10, was 18-22 with 204 yards. a Bob Brasher runs through the end zone.

Basketball was just as and in 1992, the Sun Devils kept up the winning style by beating the Wild cats for the first time since 1981. Led by super-players Jamal Faulkner and Mario Bennett, the swept through the competition and finished with a 19-14 overall record, and a fifth place finish in the Pac-10. The team went into Pac-10 with a 9-3 record and posted a 6- 3 record in the second half of the Pac- 10 season. The most popular game of all was the rivalry between ASU and U of A played on the home turf. The Activities Center boasted 13,481 fans, added to the total of 136,689 record for the season, this the third best attendance record in school history. The players were the real bright spot throughout the season, and in the lead was Bennett. Bennett was named first-team all American and named to the Pac-10 all team. He tied the ASU single-season record for blocked shots with 55. Bennett also set an ASU freshman record with a rebounding average of 6.8 and was named the team ' s MVP. Running alongside Bennett as top players were Faulkner and Stevin Smith. Smith finished first in Pac-10 steals (66), second in free-throw average (87.4) and third in three-pointers (74). He tied the Pac-10 single-game record with 8 steals vs. UC Santa Barbara. Faulkner was named most-improved by the team and received the honor of being named Player of the Week 20. The season showed that the young talent of the Sun Devil basketball team could prove their worth against the big names of the nation. This youth was essential for the team ' s growth as well. Having a young roster full of talented players meant that men ' s basketball at ASU was going to be strong for years to come. Assistant Coach Lynn Archibald felt that the young players had much to offer in the season. " We hope to finish among the top three or four teams in the Pac-10, " Archibald said. Utilizing the speed and shooting talent of the players was a major planning strategy for the next season. Watching the ball teeter on the edge, Andy Poppink of Stanford and Jamal Faulkner anxiously await the outcome of the shot. Faulkner was named most improved player.

" We were ranked 10th in the conference, " said Head Coach Maura McHugh. " We knew we weren ' t a 10th ranked team. So it was no surprise to us that we had the kind of season we had, " McHugh said. The team ' s success centered around junior- college transfer, Reynaldi Becenti. Becenti started all 29 games and became a point guard phenomona as she led the team in scoring, and steals. Her seven assists-a-game and 85 steals led the conference. Frozena Jerro, Crystal Cobb and Stacey added to a four-guard rotation that more than 35 points a game. Johnson, the only Sun Devil ever to be named to the Pac-10 all-freshman team, was the team ' s sparkplug off the bench. " Stacy Johnson did not play like a freshman, " said McHugh. The small forward position belonged to Jovonne Smith who excelled in all phases of the game. She was among the team leaders in (10.1), rebounding (5.2), and steals (56). Monique Ambers was the team ' s leading rebounder (7.2) and shotblocker (22) last year. Pressure defense and run-and-gun helped make the Sun Devils conference in steals and forced turnovers. Their style of play enabled them to put up 250 more shots than their and out-score them by an of more than 7 points a game. The team opened the season with a 9-0 record against non-conference teams. The Devils posted their best record within the conference at 11-7. During the season, the Sun Devils went from preseason 10th ranked to 5th place contenders, every team that finished in front of them. Looking ahead to the 1992-93 season, McHugh sees the team going up to the next level. " You have to set your goals high, " said McHugh " Our first goal is to get into the (NCAA) and we look to win the Pac-10. " to block a shot, Monique Ambers reaches for the ball.

Sokol Archers keep A s usual, the archery team at ASU had a great season in 1992, taking the top position at the collegiate nationals and keeping up the tradition of total domination over other university teams. " Last year we had some pretty good results, " said Sheri Rhodes, ASU ' s archery coach for the last 16 years. Jaime Loesch bulls-eyed first at the collegiate nationals in the men ' s competition while teammate Janet Schaffer shot for first position for the women. Other top players from the squad were Lori Tutford, who placed third; Tim Huedepohl, who took the second position; Jim Cassidy, who took eighth; and Michelle Jolly, who placed seventh at the collegiate nationals. " I expect Michelle to be a pretty consistent performer this year, " said Rhodes. " She ' s excited about it and she has been working hard. " Susan Duran, who placed 11th at the collegiate nationals, is returning to the team for another season as well. Alison Williamson, who was not able to travel to the collegiate trials due to Olympic training, took an impressive number two position in the European championships last summer. Williamson ' s absence from the collegiate na- tionals did not hurt the team ' s performance very much because of the strength of the other ar- chers. " I don ' t think it did a lot of damage to the team, not having her there, " said Rhodes. " But, we didn ' t have the same amount of depth that we ' ve had all season. " Williamson and Schaffer traded off for the number one team position for the female " They were either one or two at all of our tournaments, " said Rhodes. Although in the past, the archery team from ASU had crushed the competition, the season looked slightly different. Many of the top players, namely Tutford, Schaffer, and Cassidy, graduated from ASU. Rhodes was not worried by the loss of their presence. She had faith in her new recruits. " The new people coming in have a lot of experience, " Rhodes said. " They ' ve been around archery a lot and they have good, solid basic training habits as well as form coming in. " I would expect it to be a highly-competitive year just within our own squad, " she added. on the target, Susan Page kisses the bow before releasing it.

Kuehne was out with a rotator cuff injury but will be even stronger next season. Coach Lein looked forward to the talents of Hunter Johnson and Scott Johnson for their first year of eligibility. Both players were red shirted for the 1992 season. " In this sport, where we have a very small number of scholarships, and you have a freshman come in on scholarship, he should be able to play right away, " Lein said. " These freshmen would be starting for any other team in the The decision to keep them out of the competition for a season was in order to help them to gain a better grasp on their play. " After a couple of months, they even appreciated the depth of our team, " Lein said. Coach Lein did not usually red shirt freshmen, but in this case he decided to use the time to develop more competitive strength. " My job is to motivate the players and teach the ones who need to improve their games, " he said. he traveling sport of golf hosted some of the most visible names in the NCAA. Players competed both as a team representing ASU, and as individuals. Todd Demsey was the number one player on the men ' s team. Demsey won the California state amateur last summer and stroked in the San Diego open as an amateur. The tournament was played at Torrey Pines ' gruelling 36 hole course. Coach Randy Lein is relying on Todd in years to come. Coach Lein came to ASU from USC where he enjoyed 10 years of success as he led the Trojans to NCAA finals every year since named head coach in 1984. " ASU has the top facilities in the country, which gives us a tremendous advantage, " Lein said. " My position as coach is to prepare the players for tournament golf.

Sokol Ladies of golf have strong, season fter the ASU women ' s golf team won the national championship in 1990, head coach Linda Vollstedt was left to rebuild for what she felt was a two-year project. However, to Vollstedt ' s pleasant surprise, the team cracked the top 10 in 1992. " Last year we had a good season, " she said. " We were still a young team last year was a rebuilding year. We finished second in the conference and ninth overall, and those were good finishes for us. We were pleased. " Vollstedt listed her big three for the season: Wendy Ward, Tracy Cone and Tricia Konz. " Wendy Ward was runner-up at the conference championship, and she made the all-conference team, " coach Vollstedt noted. Even though the West was by San Jose State, the eventual national champion, and the of Arizona, the Pac-10 champion, ASU was right behind those powerhouses in almost every tournament. The Devils finished third in four out of nine tournaments, including the team-best second place in the US West Pac-10 Conference at ASU ' s Karsten Golf Course. Showings in the invitational were strong. Three players finished in the top 10 at the Oregon Invitational in Vancouver, Wash., with Konz placing second. She also tied for first at the UCLA-hosted Bruin Desert Classic. Two players ended in the top 10 slots at the Josten ' s Invitational in Monterey, Calif. Finally, in the conference championship battle, Ward was one shot off the lead for a spectacular second place finish. Ward, the freshman sensation, Cone the lone sophomore, and junior Konz, the only member left from that 1990 national championship team, were all slated to ret urn. Vollstedt called her three top players " the nucleus for the team " for next season. Along with incoming freshmen Emilee Klein of Studio City, Calif., and Sweden-born Linda Ericsson, the future was looking even brighter for Vollstedt and the Sun Devils. " With our two freshmen this could be the best team I ever had, " the coach said.

The team was plagued with injuries throughout the season. Photo by Scott Burgus ealthy outlooks give team a healthy future 1991, the ASU Men ' s Gymnastics team, beset with injuries, had basically a season by Coach Don Robinson ' s standards. And early into the 1992 season, it seemed like a case of deja vu. " Last year was the same thing, " said Robinson. " Minor injuries just completely wiped us out. " The Sun Devil team did not even compete in the NCAA Championships as they only placed eighth at the Regionals with a team total of 270.65, well behind Nebraska ' s team leading 286 points. During its regular season, ASU started off at 0-3 before eventually finishing at 5-5. The top team score was 275.65, which came against New Mexico University at New Mexico. The top gymnast was Paul Bedewi. His 9.80 was the top score among ASU gymnasts in the floor exercise. He also had the top scores in the rings and the high bar with a 9.60 and 9.65 respectively. Bedewi (55.20), and Chris Smith (54.15) were the two in the all-around competition at regionals. Smith excelled in vault (9.55) and parallel bars (9.65). Geoff Eaton, an injury-plagued athlete, was solid all season and even scored a 9.65 in the rings at the regionals. The pommel horse was one of weakspots for the Sun Devils. The top score went to Rich Yoder (9.30) in the first meet of the season. Searching for the silver lining in the black cloud that hung over his team, Robinson praised the other athletes who had to step up to the forefront. Gymnasts with severe injuries included Jody Newman, Kurt Johnson, Ian Kirk and Eric Brown. " I think we did a good job wi th raw talent last year even though three starters were injured, " said Robinson. " A stubbed toe for a gymnast is like a blown-out knee for a football player. " " But if you can a keep a positive attitude, and positive attitude is a team-oriented concept, " he added. " If we have that attitude we can stay healthy. " The injury to Newman hurt the squad the most. The former all-American suffered through three knee surgeries throughout his ASU career. " If not for that, he would have been in the Olympics, " he said. That same " if " seemed to be applicable to the team. on the horse, Paul Bedewi performs a difficult move.

Photo by Darryl Webb Women show we for season cach John Spini had always placed his women ' s gymnastics teams in the top 10 and 1992 was no exception. They were seventh overall in national despite some costly injuries to two of his top performers. " I thought we had a good year, " Spini said. " We finished seventh at the NCAA championships. Injuries as such, we did a very good job. " The injuries he talked about were to Christine Belotti, his prospective number one gymnast, and Tracy the third best athlete on the team. Belotti suffered a career-ending back injury at the beginning of the year. Butler was a solid contributor her ASU career, but she was to compete in her senior season. But Spini was not going to let those injuries dampen an otherwise very successful season. " It was an exciting year because we had to play through the injuries, " he said. With all the injuries somebody had to step forward, and freshman Tina Brinkman was ready and able. Brinkman was an all Pac-10 selection posting ASU ' s first and only perfect score in its history. The 10.00 came in her strongest event, the floor exercise, which she later earned all- American status at Nationals. Spini was quick to laud all of Brinkman ' s achievements, but he also emphasized the total team package. " My teams have always been strong for the whole not the individual, " he said. The team ' s march to the NCAA began at the Pac-10 invitationals. The team suffered a major setback when four gymnasts fell off the balance beam. " That put us out of the meet, " he said. The Devils were forced to settle for a fourth place finish behind Oregon State, the University of Arizona, and UCLA. The NCAA have two tournaments. The top six seeds compete in the evening session with generally higher scores awarded to them, whereas the others are considered also-rans, compete in the mornings for lower scores, and may never crack the top five. The Sun Devils went in seeded eighth and could move up only one notch. Spini said, " We could have been higher, possibly fourth, had we been in the evening session. " However, Spini was not going to dwell on that assumption. Instead he was looking forward to next year.

The team was led by Head Coach Linda Wells. Photo by Scott Burgus swinging out of a phenomenal season into regular winning season was not a switch for the ASU softball team. Having a four time all-American and several first team Pac-10 players on the lineup proved to be successful, but as Coach Linda Wells " We didn ' t maintain our peak performance throughout the season, we played well, but not to our potential. " The team entered Pac-10 with a 12-6 record and finished the Pac-10 season at 7-9. Although the team may have suffered in team play, the individuals came through and proved their worth. The pitching squad was led by Tinstman who pitched in 12 games, starting six. Tinstman excelled off as well as on the field. She was named Pac- 10 and all-Academic with a 3.39 GPA in justice studies. Tinstman was also named ASU Scholar of the Year. Also on the pitching team were Mona Nard and Dawn Wood. Wood started nine games for the Devils, three, and recording one shut-out. But it was Nard who proved to be the one to watch. Nard was named MVP in ' 92 and started 16 games ending up with a 10-6 record. She held an ERA of 0.84, one of the best in ASU history. Nard also had an impressive strike out to walk ratio (8.75 to 1). She fared well at the plate with a .273 average and 13 RBIs. And she held third place on the team for runs scored with 18. The rest of the field was sharp with outstanding performances from Dee Dee Camarena and Cheri Keller. Keller played in 46 of 48 games and was second on the team with RBIs (15). She led the Devils in assists (101), and was six for six in stolen bases. Camarena was named ASU ' s Best Defensive Player and started in 40 games. She went 18 for 91 from the plate and held a great eight for eight record in stolen bases. Being in the toughest softball conference comes with the territory for the ASU softball team. " We are a strong team and rank among the top twenty in strength, " Wells said. However, because they are in one of the toughest conferences, getting a chance for the national title was harder while getting shut out was easier. Making contact with the ball, Cheri Keller takes her turn at the plate. Keller was co- captain for the team and averaged 29 hits a year over the past three seasons.

The team placed in the NCAA finals three times over a four year period. In addition, all-Americans Brian Gyetko and Dave Lomicky, junior C hris Gambino and senior captain Ross Matheson lead the way for their team although the success depended on all team efforts. In his 10th season at ASU, Coach Lou Belken was always realistic when encouraging his team. He anticipated some losses but was confident that his team would come out on top. As quoted in the Arizona Republic, Belken said, " You ' re going to lose guys, that ' s inevitable. " He added, " But we ' ve got Matheson, who is physically very and Gambino, who led the team in wins last year. " At the beginning of the season, the team was well-aware of the rough season ahead. After ending their last season, 21-10, the team hoped to see the NCAA finals in the future. They previously ranked eighth in the NCAA quarter-finals, the highest rank since Belken became the head coach. " I think our ranking is fair, " he said. Belken noted, " I can also say that in the 10 years I ' ve been here, we ' ve finished ahead of our preseason ranking every year but one. " Gambino placed 21-8 in the previous year and he was expected to do even better this season. " Gambino is a real st rong counterpuncher, and he has the style of play that drives people crazy, " Belken said. Belken also had positive comments for Ross Matheson. " Matheson is 6-foot-5 and he hits the ball big, " he said. As stated in the 1992 ASU Media Guide, the men ' s tennis team was scheduled to play with tough and prominent opponents. It was written in the Media Guide, " In to the always treacherous Pac-10 slate, non- conference foes include the likes of Alabama, Tennessee, Clemson and Auburn. ASU ' s own Penn Invitational field [featured] Pepperdine, Miami(Fla.) and Kansas. " For future seasons, the team was looking for home victories and another trip to the NCAA Tournament. on his game, Ross Matheson competes in a at ASU.

Klimchock was also a very doubles player. " The loss of those two players will be a tough void to fill, " said McInerney, looking ahead to next year. Other contributions from the team came from sophomore Meredith Geiger who posted a 14-12 dual match record in the third slot. Kori Davidson, a freshman, recorded 11 wins over ranked players in dual matches alone. Another freshman, Joelle Schad, also had outstanding success last season. She was ranked 20th in the region with records of 19-5 in the singles and 13- 4 in the doubles. McInerney noted that success in the was due in part to success in the six-Pac. " We had a tough national schedule in one of the toughest conferences. Every team in the six-Pac has potential to be in the top 15 in the country. " Although they were eighth in the country, the Devils were only fifth in the six-Pac. McInerney looked for the team to " finish in the top 3 " next season. " I hate to use the same old cliches, but to do this we are going to need a good team effort. " he women ' s tennis team of ASU volleyed to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament and to the next level, with what their coach classified as " a great year. " " (It was) one of our best teams, " said Head Coach Sheila McInerney. A McInerney team had always been consistent and solid, but never a quarterfinal-caliber one. But this year the Sun Devils rolled to their best ever in the tournament. " We made it all the way to the quarterfinals, losing to Texas, who went on to the Finals, " said McInerney. The Sun Devils were 18-8, and their eighth place finish marked the fifth consecutive year that they fin- ished in the top 10. " We just miss out being ranked in the top four, " said McInerney. " So we were right there with everybody else. " A tennis team relies heavily on the strength of its individuals, and the Sun Devils were built around a strong core of players. Leading the Way was senior Krista Amend who played in the top singles spot throughout her college career. Stretching out her racket, Schad prepares to return the ball. The team finished in the top 10 for the fifth consecutive year. Photo by Scott Burgus By Claude Jackson women ' s tennis Hanging onto the pole, Jeff Girard vaults himself over the bar.

Photo by Steve Wagner Graduates leave room to test young talent head Coach Tom Jones ' commitment and women ' s rebuilding track and field squads ended the day he left ASU after the 1992 campaign, but the team still took long strides in the right direction last year. Without commenting on the departure of Jones, interim head coach Ken Lehman reflected on last year ' s team and accomplishments. " It was a definite rebuilding year, " said Lehman. Rebuilding meant testing the core of young talent that may push ASU over the top in the coming years. Sprinters like Ime Akpan and Shanequa Campbell had to take second billing to seniors Maicel Malone and LaShawn Simmons. However, Lehman noted those athletes would take center stage next year. " We should be really good, " he said. " Our women ' s team is loaded this year. " Loaded in almost all the areas, Lehman But last year the seniors really shined. " For the women, it was Tracy Mattes in the 400m hurdles, Maicel Malone, a 400m sprinter, and Tesra Bester in the hurdle and long jump, " Lehman said. Lehman also mentioned Simmons, Akpan and Campbell on the all-American list. However, the season did not fair well at the conference invitational, but Lehman explained, " We would have finished in the top three. It was the hardest luck; four people were injured in the hurdle, relays, and 800m [events]. " Although, overall not as strong as the women ' s team, the men ' s team still had some high points in competition play. Lehman said, " For the men, graduating all- Americans were Shane Collins in the shot put and Todd Lewis in the distance, and returning all-Americans are [Gabe] Beechum in the high jump and Nick Hysong in the Pole Vault. " Hysong ' s leap of 18ft 1 1 4 in was a school record. Lehman also listed returning standouts from last year. " We have Charlie Cohen in the javelin and Brian Ellis in the long jump and triple jump, who was also a junior TAC national champion. And there is Jimmy Kegler in the sprints, Jim Leeper in the decathlon and Jim McCreery in the distance. " Striving for a new record, Brian Ellis sails across the sand pit for the long jump. Ellis was a junior TAC national champion last year. Photo by Steve Wagner By Claude Jackson Showing good form, Jacob Cruz swings at the plate. The Devils were ranked number four in the region.

" We accomplished our primary goal (last and that was to make it to the tournament, " Brock said. However, the team did not enjoy its usual number one seed in the round of the west region. Instead, it was sent to the Mid-West Region. ASU was ranked number four in the region. Brock was not entirely with the season. " So it was an okay year, " he said. " A lot of people would be happy to have a year like us. It ' s just that we have higher standards here. " The conference competition proved to be the toughest for the The conference was so tough that every team in the Six-Pac Southern Division posted an over- all winning record. Despite ASU ' s 32-22 record, the squad could only muste r a 14-16 conference record, and for national ranking finished four games out of the reach of first-place Arizona. Plus, the Devils boasted one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country. " There have been times where we ' ve over-scheduled, " said Brock. " And the Six-Pac is extremely tough. There are 30 games where we beat each other so bad. We ' re just punchdrunk at the end. " Senior Jeff Matranga led the conference in victories (10) and complete games (7), and Sean Lowe recorded 106 strikeouts in 105 innings. The team posted a respectable 4.67 ERA. Sophomore Doug Newstrom, who suffered arm troubles, still led the team in winning (7-2 overall) and ERA (3.59). The team batted .308 while sophomore baseman Bill Dunn led all regular starters with a .341 batting average, outfielders Todd Steverson and Scott Samuels were co-leaders in homers with 11 each, and pitching ace Newstrom was also the team ' s RBI leader with 48. Third baseman Antone Williamson was the league ' s top newcomer, batting .321 with 44 RBI and a team-leading 18 doubles. Junior shortstop Kurt Ehmann led the team with 73 hits.

Entering the season a heavyweight class competitor, the team nevertheless managed to make a great showing. Returning seniors Roy Miller (167 lbs.) and Shawn Charles (126 lbs.) were both ranked first in the nation. They were three time in a program that had placed 66 in the NCAA Wrestling ' s 30 year history. There are 10 weight classes in the wrestling competition. Since the ASU wrestling team did not have a heavyweight for the first half of the season, it suffered a six point forfeit penalty for each match. This loss was avoided in the second half of the season with the arrival of a freshman heavyweight in the second semester. The team was led by a new coach this year as Bobby Douglas ended his career at ASU and went on to coach Iowa State. Head Coach Lee Roy Smith came to ASU from a four year stint as director of the U.S. national team. He planned on bringing his successful tactics from the U.S. team and tried them out on the Devils. His determined goal was to turn out educated students as well as competitive ones. " I feel the goals of the ASU athletic department and my goals are very similar, " Smith said. ASU ' s biggest opponent was the of Iowa, with Penn State a close second, and Iowa State, which was led by forme r ASU coach Bobby Douglas, next. The national championships were held in Ames, Iowa and concluded in March. Almost always placing in the top 10 in the nation, this year ' s goal was to place in the top three and stay there. Coach Smith inherited a team loaded in the lower and middle class weights, and continued the winning streak. Smith planned on making more than great wrestlers out of his new team, he was making better people. " I would like to have an overall program whose results are not only reflected in championships, but in and citizenship, " he said. Getting a hold on his opponent, Dave Barker struggles for control.

Photo by Amie Madden takes charge of the road 1 he Sun Devil volleyball team swept through the competition and ended up ranked 14th in the nation. " Overall, it was a very, very rewarding year, " said Head Coach Patti Snyder. The team had a 23-8 record for the year and a 11-7 record in the Pac-10. The Devils went on to compete in the NCAA championships and finished in the final 16. It was the second time in ASU history that the volleyball team progressed to the second rounds of the tournament. They lost to first-ranked UCLA. Snyder was happy with the results. " It was one of the best Pac-10 finishes as well as the best NCAA finish, " she said. The Devils started out with a very strong opening season. In September, they competed in the Sun Devil Hilton Challenge which they won hands down with a 4-0 showing. The second week in September they went to New York to compete in another tournament which they dominated as well. Heading into the Pac-10 competition with an 8-0 record, the women of the Sun Devil volleyball team were well to make their mark across the nation. " We had a better road record than a home record, " Snyder said. The team had the 10th toughest schedule in the nation, and responded well to the pressure. Nicknamed the " Road Warriors, " the team had a reputation for strong. Eight of their matches went to the fifth game, and they won all eight. One major reason the team was so impenetrable was due to the force of the starting line-up. The starters consisted of Christine Everett, Christine Garner, Nancy Christian, Leanne Schuster and Amy Nelson. Post-season honors included the naming of Coach Snyder as Pac-10 coach of the year and Jennifer Helfrich, with a GPA of 3.97, to the first-team academic all-American. Next season, Coach Snyder had her eye on a higher goal. " We ' ll be just as good, if not better because we have outstanding youth, " she said. The team has another year to improve, and with four starters and the core of the line- up returning, it will be very interesting. " I think you ' ll see a more athletic team on the court next year, " she said, along with her of snatching the number one title away from Stanford and setting a new standard.

" We ' re in the upper echelon of swimming, " said Johnson ' s assistant Barry Schreifels. " We lost one meet, " he added. " Our dual meet record was something like 10-1 or 9-1. " It was 7-1 two wins short of the team ' s best winning percentage that was set the year before last. Over the last three years, the Sun Devils have lost only four dual meets. 1992 was an Olympic year, and ASU was not without its own input as nine swimmers their own countries swam in Barcelona. " Nine of our guys swam in the Olympics and we return six of them (for 1993), " Schreifels said. Last year coach Johnson added seven more swimmers to his already astronomical list of all- Americans at ASU. They were Doug King, David LeBlanc, Emmanuel Nascimiento, Richard Tapper, Jason Blaylock, David Holderbach and Christiano Michelena. Nascimiento, Tapper, sophomore Blaylock, and Michelena, a freshman, combined to finish in third place in the 800m-freestyle relay at Nationals. In the 200m-backstroke Holderbach, a claimed seventh place. The 100m-freestyle produced another seventh place finish. This time it was from senior Nascimiento, a three-year all-American. King, the fourth graduating senior, took ninth in the 100m-backstroke. Senior Tapper ' s performance in the 500m-freestyle was good for fourth in the finals. " We graduated the Pac-10 scholar athlete of the year, " exclaimed Schreifels of Tapper. " He will be tough for us to replace. " Schreifels, also, proudly acknowledged the team ' s commitment to on an international level. Of the team ' s magnificent seven, only Blaylock and King were born from the United States. " We have swimmers from nine countries, " he said. " We recruit throughout all of Latin America, because this is the Southwest. That ' s our strongpoint. " Plus, I think it ' s proper.

" Overall, it was a very good season despite the loss of some of our top swimmers, " head coach Tim Hill said. The Devils were looking to get back into the top 10 after falling down to 13th in 1991. But a car accident and nagging injuries to other swimmers kept the team back, and they could only move up one notch. " One girl we lost to a car accident was an all-American, " added Hill. Indeed, sophomore Laura Devore was supposed to anchor the freestyle leg of the program along with seniors Therese Lundin and Heidi Hendricks and sophomore Marnie Tobin. All were of all-American standings. Devore ' s absence was magnified at the NCAA Championships. " That affected five of seven events at Nationals, " Hill said. " So I think we would have been in the top 10. Plus, we had a couple of girls who were sick: Betsi Hugh and Lisa Rhodes. " Rhodes, a freshman, was the team ' s long- distance freestylist, and junior Hugh, another all-American, was the backbone of the team in the butterfly events. Hill said that he was in no way displeased with his swimmers ' efforts. " We were undefeated in dual meets at 7-0, and did finish 12th at nationals, " he said. Individual highlights were led by Lundin, who placed in two individual events. Lundin competed in all the relays and was 12th at the Olympics. Also, Hill said Hugh " had a very good She was 10th in the 200m-fly at Nationals. She did not score in the Olympics because she was sick.

" The top three ladies were Amy Garner, Amy Palmer and Meredith Herbert, " O ' Connell said. For O ' Connell, recruiting these high profile divers was not relegated to one region. " Almost every area of the country was on our teams, " he said. " They came from all over the United States. " They may have come from all over the United States, but they are not leaving as only one senior hailed from either team. Rick Sawtell was the only senior on the team " for the men ' s side.

Traditionally not a high-profile sport, many students were unaware that ASU was home to many of the nation ' s most badminton players — one-third of the national badminton team attended ASU. ASU ' s showing at the Olympics also gave them bragging rights. The 1992 summer games marked the first time that badminton was a medal sport, and five of the six U.S. players came from ASU. Ben Lee and Tom Reidy reached the top 16 at the and earned the highest ranking for a U.S. player team in 10 years. As if that weren ' t enough, there were five individual national titles given each year — all went to ASU. " ASU players have won all five titles every year I ' ve been here, " said Guy Chadwick, the badminton coach since 1988. " We ' ve won the women ' s team title 12 of the last 14 years and nine years running, and we ' ve taken the men ' s and mixed titles 10 straight years. " Led by returning champions Reidy and women ' s singles and doubles champion Andrea Anderson, we plan on continuing our streaks, " continued Chadwick, a member of the first ASU men ' s team. That team took the national in 1978. Stefan Lundstrom, a highly-touted freshman from Sweden, was ranked second singles player on the team, behind Reidy, a senior. Lundstrom said he chose ASU so he could continue playing his favorite sport while furthering his a mix that is not possible in Sweden, where sports aren ' t offered at the college level. " It ' s too bad that badminton is not as popular here as it is in Europe, " said Lundstrom, who had asserted himself as an U.S. national team candidate with good early season results. " But, I will keep up my skills here, and then play in professional competition when I return to Europe. " Coach Chadwi ck was looking toward the next granddaddy of global competition: the Olympic games. " If ASU continues to make strides in quality badminton players, we are sure to see a number of Sun Devils representing the U.S. at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, " he said. the birdie over the net, Martin Flores plays with teammate Paul McAdam. was an Olympic medal event for the first time last summer.

Photo by Tim Gibbons women take the lead in national invitationals a world of sports dominated mostly by men, it was refreshing to see the country team at ASU led by the women. This year, Kelly Cordell and Sharette Garcia boosted ASU ' s prominence by winning and in several meets. Cordell ' s best time was in the Texas A M invitational where she ran the 5K in 17:20.28. Garcia placed third running a scant 26 seconds Cordell at 17:46.93. Women dominated the winnings for ASU ' s cross country team by taking the University of Texas El Paso Invitational and the Texas A M These events were team wins, as shown by the results in the UTEP invitational. Cordell placed second, Garcia was sixth, Jennifer Dander placed seventh, followed closely by Kristin Wellman in eighth place and Kim Toney in ninth. The Texas A M invitational went over just as well. Cordell came in first place with Garcia in third, Toney in sixth and Wellman in tenth place. The Pac-10 Championships, held at Stanford, showed ASU placing seventh in the women ' s division and gave the returning team a chance to get a lot of experience. Coach Ken Lehman felt that the season was exciting for the women and was looking forward to next year with his returning runners. The men ' s team had a fair season but didn ' t stand up against the women ' s example. They finished third at both the UTEP and Texas A M invitationals. " The men didn ' t do quite so good this year, " Lehman said. At the UTEP Invitational Erin Scroggins ran 4 miles in 22:23, and ran the 8K in the ASU in October with a time of 25:29.15. Also at UTEP, Eric Aragoni finished with a time of 22:38, and at the Texas A M Invitational had a time of 26:02.78. Next year will be a different story. The men ' s team is returning almost all of the runners from this year. " We have basically everybody coming back and we should be naturally better, " Lehman said. But, for the women ' s team , the strong runners are moving on. " We lose Kelly Cordell and Sharette Garcia and just have to try to replace them the best we can, " Lehman said. " The women will be a little bit younger and a little less but the men should have quite a bit of experience. " Running in the lead, Gerald Fougner competes in a meet.

Sailors. Purdues. One-hand torch extensions. Those words meant nothing to the average student. But for members of the ASU cheer squad, those terms were commonly integrated into their every day routine. Those words were the names of just some of the many daring stunts the squad performed on the basketball court and football field to promote school spirit. The squad, made up of twelve women and five men, were continuously involved in other activities to represent the school. For example, when a new shopping mall opened in town or a promotional advertisement was requested, the entire squad was called in to help. They even doubled as volunteer workers on various projects. A dedicated squad, they gave exhibitions for charities and were known for working with young cheerleaders around the Before football season began the squad attended the National Cheerleading Association Camp. Here, they learned and created a of their dances and sideline cheers that wooed fans and rocked the house at ASU ' s sporting events. The camp was also a way for many of the cheerleaders to be recognized individually. In fact, three of the male cheerleaders were invited to help teach the camp next year. They also got to show off their own skills through competition. By the end of the camp, the ASU squad had competed against UCLA, Hawaii, St. Johns and Long Beach College. They received first place in the chant-and-cheer category and place in the side-line category. Cheerleading involved a great deal of time that went unpaid although strict requirements were enforced. To be eligible, the women had to maintain a certain weight throughout the year. Sponsor Lynne Seager explained the purpose. " The difficulty of the stunts requires light women, " she said. " It would be unsafe other- wise. " The women had to also be able to do back handsprings. Men had to bench press their own body weight. What was the motivation to be a cheerleader? " It ' s a great way to get involved in school spirit and stay in shape, " sophomore William Fischbach III said.

Photo by Craig Valenzuela In Ireland, 17 years ago, Tom Reidy, at the age of seven, picked up his first badminton racket. He did not realize that he would be one of the top badminton players in ASU history and go on to represent the U.S. at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. Reidy was born in New York and left with his parents to Ireland at the age of four. There, Reidy was introduced to badminton, as well as soccer, and he excelled in both sports. Reidy was constantly asked by people how he came to play badminton. " That ' s one of the first questions people ask me — ' how in the hell did you get into said the 24-year-old criminal justice " Badminton is number two behind soccer in Europe. That ' s how I got into it. " One of Reidy ' s lifetime goals is to promote here in the U.S. He hopes to do this through his own hard work by qualifying for the Olympics in 1996. He believes if he can win a medal, it will give the sport the publicity it deserves. " The only way to promote the sport, [is to] win a medal in the Olympics. The main thing that is lacking here is that there is no exposure for the sport on TV. Hopefully, winning the Olympics will give more exposure and publicity to the sport, " Reidy said. When it came down to the notification of who was chosen to participate in the Olympics, Reidy was not informed until the end of April when the rankings came out. He said that in order to qualify, you had to be in the top 28 double spots in the world and that he an another former ASU badminton player, Ben Lee, played for months in Europe and Asia to earn a ranking. When Reidy was informed that he and Lee were ranked at 22, he felt that his hard work and dedication to the sport paid off. " It was a lot of relief, " he said.

There was a special stadium in the village for badminton... the only one in the village.

He felt that his parents had little and that this was his way to " give something back. " " The exciting part of this experience was the expression of my parents, " Reidy said.

Thought to be materialistic and just out for parties, many members of the Greek system found it a hard task to overcome the prejudice associated with their group. But when they did overcome the stereotypes, they found friends, support, honor and a RITE OF PASSAGE into the life that awaited them. greek Gamma what? Sigma who? Beta when? These questions may have been asked by those students who participated in Fall Rush 1992. The Greek of course, created the names of the many fraternal organizations on ASU ' s campus. Rush occurred during the month of August for both sororities and fraternities. The different Rush activities served many purposes. Rush curious students to explore the Greek system and enabled to become familiar with organizations and the people FINDING A involved in th em. Each house put in weeks of hard work to ensure that its particular rush was successful. Sorority rush began with to the houses. Toward the middle of the week, skits and helped each participant her choices to nine, then to five. Preference Night was the student ' s final chance to declare which three houses she wante d to pledge. On the following day, bid cards were handed out to chosen rushees, formally extending an to the pledge class. Rushees said the entire week was very " stressful, exciting, and But most of those who took part in the activities felt that the stress and anticipation was worth it. Sophomore Beth Heidmann, a psychology major, was one of those rushing. " Rush was an experience that I would most definitely to anyone, " she said. Fraternity rush was less structured than sorority rush. The men extended open invitations to publicized events which ranged from a night at the dog races to dinners hosted by different houses. These activities even included paint-pellet wars. By the end of the month, rushees knew about the 24 letters in the Greek alphabet. By the end of the year and their pledge period, some ended up with the privilege of wearing them.

Photo by Rick Escalante The small white envelope was in her hand, and the suspense was her, yet she was afraid to open it. It was bid day 1992, and opening the envelope would reveal which had invited her to become one of their new pledges. Slowly she gained enough confidence to open the envelope. There it was in black and white — an invitation to become a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority. The first semester for both sorority and fraternity pledges was a learning process. " My responsibilities are to attend pledge meetings, learn the lesson of the week, pass the national exam, maintain a certain grade point, and pay respect to everyone, " Stephanie Hibdon said. " We are also required to support our own philanthropies as well as the philanthropies of other sororities and fraternities. " Being a pledge involved lots of responsibility and devoting hours of time, but it also had great benefits. There were date parties, exchanges and philanthropic events. " We have one lesson every week which teaches us something about the chapter, " she said. Meetings ended with pledges one good thing that happened to them during the week. This helped them build sisterhood, Hibdon said. " It is like being a little kid in a big family, " she concluded. Saturday was the first day of rush and all of the fraternities set up booths in the UAC. This gave the rushees a chance to talk to guys in many different houses. Some rushees decided to participate in the activities sponsored by one fraternity, therefore they limited themselves by one house. Fraternity rush was a lot different than sorority rush because it was more laid back. But that didn ' t mean that the pledges didn ' t have just as much responsibility, if not more. " We have to study eight hours a week, wear our pledge pin, wear a shirt and tie on Wednesdays and we have house duties, " Pike Pledge Jon Marlinga said. " We have to treat all of our brothers with respect. " Pledging a fraternity was about learning brotherhood. " There ' s no looking down on anyone. My pledge brothers are great! " Marlinga said.

It was like walking the streets of Jamaica and hearing the shop call, " Come to my shop. " The event was Rush. Fraternity and sorority members wanted a selected few to be like them, to be a Greek. But why? Why did anyone want to join a sorority or fraternity? Meredith Link, a member of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, elected to join the Greek system so she would not feel alone on ASU ' s overwhelming " This is a large school, " she said. " Joining a sorority gave me a smaller group of friends. I stay in it because the leadership skills I ' m learning are incredible for my future. " Sure, she could have joined other clubs, but none offered the wide of choices she wanted. " I chose the Greek system because it does a little bit of everything. It ' s a wider-based interest group, " said the senior student. Fighting off the negative image was one thing most Greeks had to face. Much of the contentions came from those who belonged to their own group: GDI. Kappa Kappa Gamma member Jamie Leary got plenty of flack from friends when she rushed. " It ' s not for them, but it was for me, " she said. " You ' re not buying friends like a lot of people think. It ' s hard for people to understand if they ' re not a Greek. " Delta Sigma Phi members Eddie Devall and Doug Gayer agreed with Leary. " A lot of people still have that image of Animal House when they think of Greeks, " he said. " The brotherhood and are the key reasons I ' m a Greek. " While partying was part of being Greek so was raising money for Gayer said he joined for both those reasons. Leary, the recording secretary for her sorority, understood her decision to join. " My mom was a Kappa so I guess I was predisposed to sororities, " she said. " It gives you a sense of We live together. We ' re together 24 hours a day. You get more out grEEK of it than just friends. " Unlike most campus organizations, once you were a member of any Greek organization, you would be a Greek for life. wHY Written by Renea D. Nash It was one thing being a member of ASU ' s Greek system. It was another thing to be among its leaders. " It was a dream for me to hold top four, " said Albie Berger, vice president of Sigma Nu. " Top four " included president, vice president, treasurer and secretary. It was an honor that came with much responsibility. " It ' s a great experience, and I ' m happy I got the opportunity, " Berger continued.

" Conflict management and problem solving were the two main areas received experience as a leader. Separating the roles of friend and leader was an added challenge when confronted with these issues. " It ' s difficult, " Berger admitted. " If a member isn ' t upholding the of the fraternity, then I have to consider the brotherhood and not the brother. The brotherhood is most important. " Alpha Chi Omega president Angela Parsells knew all too well that being a leader in the Greek system meant wearing many hats. " It ' s a never-ending job, " said the senior broadcasting student. " I don ' t think there ' s anything easy about it, maybe taking all the compliments when things go well. " And when things didn ' t go so well? " You took that too. " So why did students commit to be leaders on top of being a student? " I have a very deep feeling for my Parsells said. " I wanted to be one of the people part of making things happen. " And an executive officer was just " one " who made things happen. Many other officers helped to make things run efficiently.

Photo by Janina Cartier With every society, there was a board to help the social groups with decisions, rules and regulations. The same went for the Greek society. According to Jones, Panhellenic the Panhellenic and IFC organi- zations joined heads and became the Greek governing body. Jones said, " There are a lot of similarities between Pan and IFC. " Panhellenic was comprised of 15 national sorority chapters. " Every sorority has to have a chapter to be part of the Greek system at ASU, " Jones said. According to Jo nes, there were 14 traditional sororities, meaning they belonged to a larger group, the National Panhellenic Confer Kappa Alpha. AKA was a member of the NPHC as well. Every year, Panhellenic organized the fall formal rush. In spring, they also had a rush, but it was a little more informal. In addition, Pan listened to the hearings for the order of Alpha. Jones said, " For example, if a was caught hazing, Pan would handle the case. " Within the governing body, there were ten internal positions, which cabinet members and Panhellenic and IFC promoted scholarship, philanthropic events and intramurals. They worked closely with the Hall Association. Jones was also the residence hall director for Palo Verde Main, which was the sorority dorm. Panhellenic also had a smaller organization, called junior Pan, which was for this year ' s new pledges. Jones said that IFC had very similar structure. " IFC is almost exactly the same as Panhellenic, " she added. However, IFC was the governing board in charge of 26 fraternities on campus. IFC was the male counterpart to Panhellenic. Each organization was single-sexed. Although the fraternities and sororities worked on the same events and activities, they also participated on numerous projects individually. IFC was also responsible for governing their part of the council. The most important purpose for both IFC and Pan was to establish a governing system for the Greeks on campus. OF DUTy ence.

Photo by Steve Wagner Alpha Phi Alpha Greek organizations were again a major part of the campus scene. Fall Rush, sorority teas and fraternity as well as a host of other actitivies filled the schedules of many students. With each event, they created another page of memories in their chapter ' s history books. And history was an important of Greek life. From this, members followed traditions and paid tributes to the brothers and sisters before them. Pledges studied and were tested on the historical foundation of each group. Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity was one group that was thankful for its history — especially the events that led up to July 4, 1948. That was the day when Kappa Psi became the first black social fraternity on ASU ' s campus. " A group of brothers got together and wanted to start a chapter here, " Kappa Danny King said. The chapter from the University of California at Los Angeles assisted in the charter. Along with the pursuit of high achievements, strong among its members, the fraternity ' s goals also included service. King said the Kappas painted homes in South Phoenix and were active in establishing a tutoring program for junior high school throughout the Valley. Members of ASU ' s black Greek comprised of fraternities Phi Beta Sigma, Alpha Phi Alpha, and Kappa Alpha Psi and sororities Delta Sigma Theta, Alpha Kappa Alpha and Zeta Phi Beta, met in October to create a black Greek council. " We all need to get together, " King said, adding that the purpose of such an organization would be " Greek unity. " While these Greek organizations were smaller in numbers compared to other sororities and on ASU ' s campus, King said there was little difference. Members did not have to be African American. " We have houses, and we throw parties too, " he said. Members of Delta Sigma Theta in September worked with ASASU on a voter registration drive.

The leadership conference was held so professionals could relay helpful hints to university students within the Greek system. Chad Wollett, educational director for the Greek Council, said that the conference had many beneficial speakers and workshops. Wollett said, " We had many talk about cultural diversity, moti- vation and self-image. " Among those who spoke were Kim Padulo, assistant dean of students for the University of San Diego, and Patrick Naessens, assistant dean of students for the University of Pacific. Each talked about his or her specific field of interest. However, they also spoke together in a session dubbed " He Said, She Said. " According to Wollett, Padulo and Naessens discussed the importance of men women relationships in general. " They talked about the gender gaps in society as a whole, " Wollett added. He also said that speakers held workshops that concerned self-image and how the Greek image was by personality and by the student body. The conference also covered such as the roles of leaders in the workplace and their responsibilities on the corporate ladder. These workshops examined the long-term of cultural diversity because the issue played a big part in Wollett said, " Cultural diversity is more than just a race issue. There are many people with physical disabilities that are included with cultural diversity. " He mentioned that there are not many disabled students who belong to the Greek system, but he hoped that would soon change. As for OUT the confe rence, Wollett said there was a lot of positive from all those who attended. The speakers and workshops were very beneficial. Wollett said the conference was a good idea. He added that once there is a better understanding of the Greek system, there will be success from its members. Written by Kim Kaan It started off as just a party. Then they added a purpose. That ' s the metamorphosis the annual Theta Delta Chi Volleyball tournament took in the fall, as the fraternity strived to help those less fortunate. Written by Renea D. Nash " Before, it was just a party, " said Theta Delta Chi president Ed Wallace. " March of Dimes is our national and the tournament had great potential so we decided to make the Although the tournament brought in only $275, the fraternity was one of the largest contributors to March of Dimes, Wallace noted. He predicted better returns at the next tournament as the fund-raising aspect would be different. " We set up teams and put placed them on floors, " he said. " Usually the sororities bid to sponsor teams, but this year we just had a straight bid of $25. And not all got involved. " for all it ' s worth, Andy smacks the ball to send it over the net. Patterson was one of many who participated in the Theta Delta Chi volleyball tournament. Photo by Fredrick Medanich Wallace said all the fraternities turned out for the annual, double- elimination, two-man team which was solely for those in the Greek system. " It ' s always been a pull- everyone-together event, " he said. " It st rengthens unity. " The battle for the best among the fraternities was irrelevant as two Theta Delta Chi teams ended up in the finals. Some of the sponsors for the event included Miller Lite, Evian, Volleyball Magazine, Gus ' s Pizza, Trunks and BMOC, a great supporter of the Greek system. Like many other fraternities, this event was just one of the group ' s events. While Wallace, a senior majoring in political science, fully the party reputation attached to sororities and fraternities, he was quick to note the Greek system ' s to public service. For example, in addition to the tournament, Theta Delta Chi had an " Adopt-a-Highway " program running in the fraternity. Three times each semester its cleaned up parts of the interstate in Chandler. He also noted the great fund-raising successes by other fra- ternities, such as the Sigma Nu Relays. " We all like to get together, and we do have pretty large parties, " Wallace said. " But we get out and do great things for the community too. " setting up the ball, a player passes to his teammate. The fraternities regularly played in intramural competition.

Rob Cavanaugh, member of Sigma Phi Epsilon said Greek Sing was basically an event where the houses joined together and performed a short skit to the audience. " Each team does about three songs, " he said. " They work really hard to get it just right. " Greek Life Coordinator Vicki Hersh explained that Greek Sing was one of the biggest events that took place Greek Week. " In November, each is as signed a team. these teams are comprised of about five to six houses, " Hersh added. song These houses practiced during the entire semester and presented their skit at the final recital.

In addition, each team was for the choreography of their rou- tine, building sets, and creating their own music. " Most of them make their own bands, kind of like a garage band, " Hersh said. Not only was Greek Sing an part of Greek Week, but it also benefited a worthwhile cause. All raised were donated to Camp Sunrise, a camp located near Payson, Ariz., for children who suffered from cancer. The camp was a part of the American Cancer Association. The funds raised by Greek Sing were used to build more cabins at the camp. Also, students from ASU went to the camp in the winter to help staff the camps. This made the children very happy because Camp Sunrise was only designated to be used during the summer months. With the help of ASU, these children camped out during the Members who won Greek Sing got plaques. The winners also points toward winning the " Greek Week " banner. The theme for Greek Sing changed from year-to-year. This spring, Greeks were encouraged to " Take a Chance. " Most of them took the theme to heart, making the event a success for needy children whose own abilities to take chances were limited.

It definitely wasn ' t on her of study. " It ' s difficult to maneuver a because it is not perfectly round and it tends to go sideways when you want it to go forward, " said Luedtke. " Mine was pretty lopsided and went into the other lanes but it was a lot of fun anyway. " Luedtke, along with about 450 other women from 10 sororities, participated in Lambda Chi Alpha ' s 13th Annual Watermelon Bust. The watermelon push was one of the games held at the event which raised more than $1,100 for Multiple Sclerosis. Approximately 400 watermelons were used, abused and consumed for the event. Other games include bowling, a seed-spitting contest, a watermelon slice shot put, a stretcher relay (where participants carried a watermelon between two brooms), an over under relay (where participants passed a greased over the heads and under the legs of a team) and a basketball (with a real basketball, of course). All the pieces of watermelon were collected in a pile for the final event: a tug-of-war over the broken watermelons. The games were judged by a panel of Lambda Chi judges, except for the basketball game, which had a hired referee. The winners were Alpha Delta Pi, Kappa Alpha Theta and Sigma Kappa sororities. A local television station filmed the events and many participants were able to see themselves on the news that evening. The men presented the Desert Southwest Chapter of Multiple with a check for more than $1,100 at the end of the week. The fraternity charged $100 for each participating sorority in addition to conducting the sale of watermelon-flavored sno from Sno Oasis on campus during the week.

Delta Upsilon was one of the newest chapters on campus. Photo by Fredrick Medanich Question: How many Greek allowed non-members to sit in on their rituals? Answer: One. And that one was ASU ' s newest fraternity, Delta Upsilon. The privacy and secrecy Greeks commanded were the traits members highly cherished so when Delta sprung its " non secret " on the rest of ASU ' s Greeks, they were intrigued. " We were a gentleman ' s fraternity. Kind of an anti-establishment going against what everyone else was doing, " said DU President Curt Ritter of his fraternity ' s beginning in 1834. " We were founded on During our rituals, anyone can come. We have nothing to hide. It seems that everyone is intrigued by that. They say, ' how can you? " The concept was not only interesting, but it left the fraternity open to public scrutiny. But they realized that fact and accepted the challenge to run a clean operation. Their nonsecret made them realize this as well as the fact that their house was located off campus at 5th Street and Hardy. While away from the jurisdiction of ASU rules, they were now members of the Tempe community. But they quickly and successfully meshed with the neighborhood. In fact, Delta was recognized for their community relations in the Phoenix Gazette. " When you live off campus, you have to get along with your said Ritter. The ASU chapter came about thanks to John Casey, a transfer student, who had friends who were DUs. An interest group was created as its members petitioned the Interfraternity Council. They officially became a part of ASU ' s Greek system in the spring of 1992. With its 45 members, DU became the 135th chapter of the fraternity. By the end of the fall semester, they had already made a name for themselves on campus and in the community, having worked with the Phoenix Zoo and the Tempe Boys and Girls Club. " We ' ve been organized for two years, but our hands were tied until we were recognized by IFC, " said GOOD Ritter. " We ' ve definitely taken the by storm. We want to let the people know that we ' re here, and we ' re a serious organization with a lot to contribute to the fraternity system. " it nEW Written by Renea D.

The sorority raised the money by charging an entrance fee to the week- long events and by selling t-shirts to the participating Greek chapters. According to Bartel, Delta Gamma was the only sorority to have a week long event. The amount of fun you had depended on how involved everybody was with the final event.

Photo by Tim Gibbons Even though the Homecoming featuring the Greek floats, was held on Friday the 13th, it did not rain on the Greeks ' parade. This year was the second year that Greeks, both fraternities and sororities, actively contributed to the Homecoming Members of the Greek system tried to create their own traditions by participation in the light the window painting contest at Fat Tuesdays and the Homecoming Ball. Kate Weakley, public relations for the Panhellenic cabinet, said, " Greeks are integrated with the other students at H omecoming Come ON Week. " She added also Greeks wanted be a part of the tradition at ASU, and they wanted to become involved in the Homecoming celebration. In addition to the school spirit and pride that most students received from being a part of Homecoming, the Greeks had an added incentive for their participation. A point system was established by the Greek Council. Members from each house strived to gain as many points throughout the week to win their prize, which was a banner them as the winners of Week. The banners served as an honor to the winning house because it reflected the hard work each house put into the week-long events. Each house ' s goal was to make this year ' s Homecoming celebration one of the best for every fraternity and sorority. Each year, the Greek Council pre. sented a banner to the house that gained the most points throughout the whole year, which was awarded on the last day of Greek Week. They also gave one of these special banners to the team that accumulated the most points during Homecoming Week. The banners were then displayed inside the winner ' s house. Weakley said, " A banner is to those who participate in the events, whether it be for Homecom- ing, intramural or philanthropic events. " " We want participation in Greek events to become bigger and bigger each year, " Weakley added. This seemed to be the philosophy for the Continued on page 257 Written by Kim Kaan painting the banner, Rosemary Singer, Cori Kesel and Megan Gold make signs to welome the alumni home.

Photo by Tim Gibbons homecoming Homecoming committee; the idea of increased participation kept volunteers motivated. This year, the houses were divided into six teams. Each team was able to gain points for its team and individual house, which would be later tacked on to its total points for the week. Also, two points were given to the Greek members who attended the Homecoming Ball, which was held at the Tempe Mission Palms. Weakley said, " If 10 people went to the ball, then their team and house would receive 20 points. " These 20 points were added to the other points, making the house one step closer to winning the banner. Weakley also said, " It was each team ' s responsibility to decide on a theme for its float, designate a time and location, and to buy and find local sponsors. " Therefore, each float turned out Their themes had to correspond with the Homecoming theme, which was FestDevil ' 92: Come home to ASU. The whole Homecoming event was sponsored by the Tempe Mission Palms, FOX television, the Tribune newspapers and Y95, a local radio station. Not only did the houses work diligently to finish and proudly display their floats, but each house painted a window at Fat Tuesdays on Mill Since all the Homecoming events centered around Mill Avenue, Fat Tuesdays was the best restaurant for the job since it had many windows for the Greek houses to work on. This was the second time the agreed to help the Greeks in the Homecoming festivities. Many Old Town Tempe merchants were involved in the special The Greeks worked throughout the afternoon on Friday to get their windows done so they could be judged accordingly. They also finished earlier in the day because they wanted ASU alumni, present students and Tempe passers-by to see their fine work. Homecoming was a time for everyone to get together and show their pride for the Sun Devils and the uni- versity. The participation kept getting bigger and bigger with every event, and that was the goal of all organizations that worked around the clock to make FestDevil ' 92 the best. In addition, the Greeks had the same idea in mind. With each celebration, a new tradition was made and this was what the fraternities and sororities wanted from their participation in Homecoming Week.

" Leary said the proceeds from the tournament went to the sorority ' s Rose McGill Fund, established to assist sorority members with their education. It provided emergency grants for Kappas and also assisted past Kappa members.

This was the second year the Kappa Sigma ' s pledge class sponsored the event for the Valley ' s Big Brother and Big Sister organization. Although no admission was charged, donations were accepted, and all proceeds went to the youth group. While other students readied themselves and their costumes for night parties, members of the sorority ' s pledge class prepared for the haunted house. Five days of black plastic, wiring strobe lights, and practicing ghoulish screams paid off. Stefanie Haggertan, a junior nursity, who assisted with the event, gave the haunted house a " perfect 10 " on a 1 to 10 scale.

Personally the papers to houses was one way the Review kept up with the Greek community. Photo by Craig Valenzuela For years, the publication known to the Greek community as the Greek Review has brought entertainment and news every month, and men and women wearing skimpy swim suits every spring. Since the Greek Review was started in 1986, many changes have taken place including new editors, and with each, new attitudes. English major Jason Baehr was editor for an issue due to staff problems, " and earned the admiration and respect of his staff. " I was put in the position of editor for an issue and everything went well so I was permanently promoted to editor, " he said. Baehr stressed the need for an all- Greek newspaper. " The Greeks are a certain group of people with certain interests and certain involvements, " Baehr said. " And the purpose of the Greek Review, then, is to report on those involvements. " In addition, Baehr emphasized that the Greek Review is more for leisure reading, and that it, at times, is not taken too seriously. " I think it ' s more of an thing. I don ' t think that it ' s a tool for the Greeks as much as just to entertain, " Baehr said. " People don ' t necessarily respect it as a publication, but it ' s more of a magazine they enjoy to read. " The majority of the staff members were in fraternities and sororities. Baehr felt that a Greek staff could better to other Greeks but also welcomed both Greek and non-Greek people. " The majority of the staff should be Greek because they can identify with the Greeks better, but I think its better to have a mixture, " he said. The Greek Review will be a part of a new publication called the University Planet. Although there will be less emphasis paid to the Greek community, the new publication will offer more opportunities, where the Greek Review wouldn ' t. " Myself and a few other people have always been interested in doing it and we have been given the opportunity to make this paper, " Baehr said. " There are only so many Greeks at ASU. Therefore, our publication as the Greek Review isn ' t going to appeal to the whole university. " Written by Craig Valenzuela his victory, a participant holds up his trophy.

Even if they didn ' t all go home victors, participants said they enjoyed the friendly competition. " We took third last year and lost by one point in the third round this year, " said Kappa Alpha member Steve Ruward. " But we still had a lot of fun. They use professional referees, who really keep control of the games. " The tournament was a pledge class project, although Sigma Kappa was one of the largest contributors to Alzheimer ' s disease research. Its national sorority created its own grant program in 1988 and has given away nearly $250,000 to researchers at 11 different colleges and universities since then, according to member Adena Bernstein. Each chapter chose how they would contribute to the Alzheimer ' s fund, but all chapters nationwide raised money by selling lollipops with the message, " Help Sigma Kappa LICK Alzheimer ' s! " The pledges secured the location at Tempe ' s Kiwanis Park, hired referees, and designed t-shirts with each fraternity ' s Greek letters on them for the players to wear. Several members of the sorority were assigned to each team as " coaches. " They relayed information about playing time and standings and saw to it that their teams received food and beverages to maintain their strength. Ruward commended the sorority for running a smooth tournament. " The coaches were supportive and kept the teams informed, " Ruward said. " I ' ve participated in a lot of sorority and this one is probably the best run. " The rules of the game were slightly altered to allow more men on the field. " It lets more of the fraternity get involved in the event, " Ruward said. " Besides, there is no better way to raise money than to have fun.

" This was what the had in my mind when they organized " Helping Hands " day. All ASU sororities joined together to help local organizations throughout the valley with meaningful tasks that needed to be finished. The more hands, the better the job. According to Kimberly Romain, Panhellenic ph ilanthropic cabinet member, this year ' s event had a really great turnout. Romain said, " About 280 people donated three to four hours to each of the organizations who needed help. " Members from each sorority broke up into smaller groups. From there, each oup covered their own specific charity. Some of the groups worked as referees for a Olympics soccer game. They also kept scores on the sidelines Others helped Tempe Home Services. They visited different residential homes and helped busy people with their spring cleaning. Many of these people, according to Romain, were elderly or lower-income people who would not be able to have someone clean for them on a regular basis. A third group rode down to the central Phoenix area and painted walls that were an eyesore for in the Garfield neighborhood. The sorority members cleaned their yards and streets. They also worked at the local youth center in the same neighborhood. In addition, a group attended a Thanksgiving party which was held for autistic people. They ate lunch and worked with the disabled on an arts and crafts project. Their project was to make turkeys out of construction paper. Romain said, " With Helping Hands, the sororities did more hands-on work for the community. " She added that the day was for volunteer work instead of the typical philanthropic events like fundraising. Panhellenic organizers called various organization three months in to ask if they would like any help. The event also gave all the sorority members a chance to meet and become friends with girls from other houses. clowning around with balloons, a member of Alpha CM Omega gets a new set of ears.

Several new buildings were erected on campus to meet the needs of a growing student Photo by Tina Rasmussen stereotypes of ASU made many students feel that they were not going to be able to receive a decent education. The school was known for its party reputation and easy classes. But a closer look showed that academics were BREAKING GROUND at all levels. New buildings were erected to create more space for learning and several colleges won awards for excellence in their fields. academics this is a good Despite the beautiful atmosphere set by downtown Scottsdale, the city still wanted to enhance the of the central business district. To keep this scenic view of Scottsdale, contractors and city officials sought a second opinion. To help them with their dilemma, they accepted the aid of experts in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design. The college, along with the city of Scottsdale members created a computer-aided model of the finished product. The university brought in their and began revising design ideas for the area. In return, the college thought of this project as an urban laboratory to observe the city as it existed. Dr. John McIntosh, director of systems support, said, " I think this is a good experience for the students. " Graduate students from the college were trained to use special software in their undergraduate programs and then they were hired as paid research assistants. " Helping with the project helps these students to put food on the table, " McIntosh said. As for the benefits of using a McIntosh felt the computer was essential in pinpointing possible problems and unique angles. " The computer can take us to the street level. We can see different of the building. For example, we can experiment with colors and the computers can even cast McIntosh added. McIntosh and other faculty from the School of Architecture served as consultants to the students and contractors, and they offered possible to improving a particular idea. The joint urban design program was so beneficial that the school anticipated working on other projects, for the surrounding Phoenix suburbs. Projects of this kind were to follow soon after the completion of the Scottsdale project. However, the program was helpful to the students who gradually wanted urban design to a permanent part of their lives. college of architecture Examining the CAD model of Scottsdale, Sheela Prabhu and Vivek Mittal look over the plan.

However, the College of Business adapted a pro- gram that gave their misrepresented students a better opportunity to strengthen their academic skills. The college placed importance on their students ' needs and created a new center called the Academic Access Program. The dean had clear objectives that made the idea more successful. Henry Villareal, director for the access program, said, " The program is a minority student service. " The program evolved over the years. Recently, the college decided to enhance the former " Revlon Project. " Initially, this project was funded by the Revlon Company, hence the name. But, over the years, the state and the university granted more money to the program. The state legislature passed a law that provided more money to the three state universities to fund projects that were specifically used to support minority students ' needs. In the past two years, the services provided for students have been to students at the graduate level. This made the program more accessible to students within the College of Many students at both levels needed some type of academic help. The center established individual academic advisement as a way to give students more personal attention. Villareal said, " We have two that provide advising on a one-to- one basis. " Tutoring services were made for students needing help in busi- ness related courses, Villareal added. Obviously, this service provided the most help for minority students in the College of Business. The center created study group and gave students an opportu- nity to sit and learn together. " Students need to interact with other students who are in similar situations, " Villareal added. More than 200 students used many of the services provided by the Academic Access Program. Assisting with the phones, Michael Mensan, a second- year graduate student, works at the Academic Access Center. Both undergraduate and graduate students gained experience from the minority program.

The College of Education joined together with the Tempe School District No. 3 to the SCALES school. The SCALES Professional School was a collaborative effort between many professors and teachers to provide the best educational environment for students in kindergarten through the fifth grade. Tom McGowan, professor in at the SCALES school, said the school is like a " teaching hosp ital. " McGowan, who was also an associate professor of curriculum and added that the closest comparison to the school is the idea of a lab school. The students benefited from the combined resources, and t he professors teachers learned from their ob- servations of the children. The professors were essential in helping fit the pieces together. to McGowan, professors were trained for the big picture, whereas elementary teachers were more to the situational problems that may occur. The two professionals each other, and the skills that were combined added to the success of the project. They tried to find new answers to old problems. Not only was the school beneficial for elementary students, but it was also extremely helpful to students who attended the College of Education at ASU. Particular students were able to work as interns and student-teachers for the school, and this experience proved to be an asset for them. In addition, McGowan taught a methods class about Social Science. McGowan said, " Students learn about a particular theory, and the school allows them to test it to see whether or not the theory is valid. " If the theory was similar, the students would then put it in practice. However, McGowan ' s instruction was not the only kind at the school, other professionals tested their theories as well. They taught students to understand role-playing and decision-making. " We just want to see what works best in a diverse environment, " McGowan added. Reading to the children, ASU student- teacher Ray Surls spends his time helping out at the school. The SCALES school was dedicated to creating a different educational environment.

A lesson in geography was just one of the benefits for retired of the " ASU on Wheels " The College of Extended Education offered educational and fun programs to members of the retired community, and this particular program was just one of the many services the college provided. Jeanne Crawford, director of the Center for Lifelong Learning, the travel program as a unique experience that most people would not like to do alone. Nine years ago, a retired couple started traveling in groups, and Crawford started helping and has kept the program rolling ever since. According to Crawford, many people, who no longer have their spouse, go on these trips so they have some company, rather than traveling alone. " Generally, the people who sign up to go on tours with us like the comfort of leaving the preparations up to else, " said Crawford. " All the work is done for them. " " We travel to so many unique places, " added Crawford. " We went on two Alaskan cruises and to the Caribbean. I have taken a group of 47 people on the Mississippi Queen, and we visited all the famous sights along the way. " The price depended on how long the trip was going to be. A one-day trip may cost anywhere from $30 to $70, depending on how far it was. The group traveled either by bus or plane. In addition, they always got first-class accommodations at the restaurants and hotels. These added conveniences made the program more worthwhile. During the ride to their destination, the group watched videos about the places that they would be visiting. Then, a qualified professional, like Crawford, would give a little bit of background information and a brief history, similar to a geography lesson. The popularity and the success of the ASU on Wheels program earned many national awards for the university and the College of Extended Education. " The College of developed this into of academic and economic To enhance the good relationship between the United States and Mexico, ASU signed an agreement to combine academic resources with El Centro de Ensenanza Tecnica y Superior (CETYS), a private engineering school with campuses located in Mexicali and Tijuana. ASU President Lattie Coor and CETYS President Alfonso Marin Jimenez agreed to combine the two institutions. The relationship between the two universities flourished after Hector Vargas, graduate student of CETYS, enrolled in the engineering program at ASU. He invited two of his professors to go to his alma mater. Dr. Richard Smith, professor of engineering at ASU, was one of the professors to go. When he was there, he came up with the plan to share available resources and to begin a prosperous relationship. This enhanced the importance of meeting new people and working with people of different nationalities. Relationships like these demonstrated that communication between two nations is, in fact, possible. " The College of Engineering wants to develop this into a sharing of and economic resources, " Smith said. " The project would be academic in that there would be a good student relationship and there would also be a sharing of faculty, " he added. Economic growth also developed a sense of how the industry works in both cultures. He added that the joint agreement helped students to understand certain international issues. For example, they learn to handle international competition. This idea of international competition, accord- ing to Smith, was also referred to as " the new reality. " Smith said, " This links closely to free trade agreements, like the recent North American Free Trade Agreement. " We hope to continue the effort and pretty soon get graduate students to help CETYS create their own graduate program.

The College of Fine Arts created a research center for its college, and members named their building block the Institute for Studies in the Arts. Frances Salas, administrative for the institute, said, " We are the research arm of the college. We research music, dance, theater and visual arts. " She added that they view each department from different and unique angles. Richard Loveless, director of the center, mentioned in his literature that the institute " suppor ts creative that extends traditional frameworks of knowledge and experience in the arts. " In addition, Salas said that actors from the institute gave a perspective to their Many people tended to shy away from this idea, thus making their ideas controversial. Their expectations of a good performance were limited. The institute also took into account the newest forms of technology within the art industry and each department of the College of Fine Arts. " The most recent research was at the visual arts through scanners used on Macintosh computers, " Salas said. " We have been looking at the progress of animation projects. " As mentioned in its mission statement, the institute hoped to increase community, regional and global awareness of new art forms. Frequently, the college invited other artists to come and show their work. Salas said, " We just had some modern dancers from New York come to Tempe and show their craft to high school students interested in dance. " This was one way they contributed to the community although they have been supportive of many other projects. According to Loveless, the institute and its research specialists " confront the essential challenges of and innovation that form the ba- sis of the Institute ' s mission.

Although there were many offered at the Graduate College, Donna Izzo, second-year graduate joined the ASU Industrial Fellows program. She saw an advertisement in a for the ASU program and was instantly hooked. Izzo decided on the university ' s program because it was a one-of-a-kind offer. Graduate students who had degrees in engineering were to be in the fellowship. They just had to be willing to work hard at a part-time job as well as maintain their grades at school. Students went to the university full- time and worked part-time at which were similar to their career goals. " I work 20 hours at Intel for my fellowship, " Izzo said. Izzo worked as a software engineer at Intel, since she was majoring in computer science. Basically, the were research assistants for the various companies The extra work seemed to help rather than hinder the busy student. Izzo added, " The part-time job allows fellows to role-play. " She also mentioned that she enjoyed working in the industry. She was able to experience the real-life aspects of her future occupation. ASU and the engineering industries shared their abundant resources to present a diverse curriculum for the hard-working students and future productive employees. " ASU has combined the program so students have an opportunity to their academic, leadership and service skills, " Izzo said. She also said, " We have to take 30 semester hours to complete our degree and six of those credits are put toward our thesis. " The Engineering Graduate program takes about two to three years to similar to other studies. Furthermore, the program the benefits of helping the and the need for better skills.

Teaching leadership qualities to their members guaranteed success for them in the future. And, the Honors College was proud of its council. The Honors Council played a part in the development of the new school year. They supported other social groups and they also encour- aged honor students to get more in- volved with the university and what it had to offer. To provide a description, Kevin Myer, president of the Honors said, " The council is a student which is a part of ASASU. " Membership in the prestigious was available to any student who was a member of the Honors College. In addition to governing the college, the council spent numerous hours supporting honorary The goals of these organizations were similar in nature to the Honors Council. " We supported Habitat for because they are a worthwhile cause, " Myer added. One of the main functions of the group, according to Myer, was to help honor students with potential problems they might find on campus. Myer said, " We identified possible problems on campus and relayed the information to our members. " He said that the group wanted to expose honor students to the campus. He also said they gave suggestions on good places to go on campus as opposed to the just decent places to hang out. The council modeled the intentions of many state-level governments. This helped students visualize possible careers and expectations when they left the university. " Our Honors Council, however, is closer in touch with what is on campus than a state-level would be, " Myer added. He explained that being on the Council gave good opportunities to meet new people. " Our main focus is to provide a communication network so students have someone to contact if they need help in any way, " Myer said. by kim honor ' s college Listening intently, members of the Hon ors Council make plans for future activities.

" The College of Law intended its students ' project to mean exactly that. The college initiated the Pro Bono Project, a program that would help the people of the Arizona community, particularly the homeless people in Phoenix. Maureen Kane, vice president of the ASU Student Bar Association, Pro Bono Project, said, " The project is a volunteer clearing house or a work- study program. " She mentioned the clearing house idea because students processed a request that would come in and once they were done, they would send it back out. As a way to help these people, lawyers provided their legal services for free to people who normally could not pay for them. " We encourage working lawyers to provide their services, and we their efforts, " Kane said. The project was a branch of the Bar Association. ASU law students aided the lawyers with their background research, so the lawyers would not have to do it themselves. Kane added, " We do the primary work so the lawyers can do more. " Most lawyers would not have time to do thi s in addition to their regular work. Researching a case could be very time-consuming. If they had the assistance of a student, the lawyers could help more people with urgent legal needs. The students definitely contributed to reducing the lawyers ' case load. The background research included writing memos, researching previous cases and interviewing prospective clients. " The students do the legwork of the case, " Kane said. Not only did the students help the lawyers and their clients, but they also learned more about their field of study. Kane added, " They learn while they are helping the community. " Students earned Pro Bono hours for each hour they finished legal-related volunteer work. Once they earned 50 hours their three years at law school, these students were honored at with a certificate that their dedication to the Pro Bono Project.

The $1.5 million grant supported the research for biological studies. Photo by Jason Kantrowitz To strengthen any kind of academic program, the departments needed money. But, thanks to the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the College of Liberal Arts was able to enhance the biological science department, in the area of zoology. A five-year, $1.5 million grant was awarded to the college to support the undergraduate program. ASU used part of the grant and attracted students to this field, provided new teaching methods to the faculty by sponsoring more and pursued new curriculum that directly connected the with the community college and high schools. The new curriculum was beneficial for misrepresented to feel comfortable with working within the field and to get them more motivated in the area. Women and other minorities were especially encouraged to get involved with the science. Dr. James Collins, chairman of the zoology department, said, " We wanted to use the grant to help us with and to support critical thinking in our students. It is important to support undergraduate research programs, so we can motivate students to continue at the graduate level. " Unfortunately, the zoology department was lagging behind the times, but the grant was able to ensure that the department would receive more attention and support. According to Collins, " ASU wanted to be competitive with other We wanted our labs to be of good quality also. " Within the past couple of years, the zoology labs tried to update their equipment. Professors also started to use techniques to explain zoology. Their efforts were to lure students to the science. The College of Liberal Arts and now had many incentives to capture the interests of biological majors. In addition, the zoology planned on organizing several workshops that would educate both students and the faculty. kim kaan Looking for Patricia Dinegar examines Justin Waddle for strep throat. The College of Nursing free child care to homeless children. Photo Craig Steeves People helping people. The College of Nursing did just that when it devised a plan to administer free medical aid to homeless children. Dr. Phyllis Primas, associate of nursing, came up with an idea that would benefit both the and ASU. She and other of her medical staff were lifesavers to many children who were medical care. Typically, these lived in South Phoenix and their parents did not have jobs to pay for the high-cost of good medical care. The College of Nursing, in with the Salvation Army, began a clinic that gave medical help to children up to 20 years of age. They administered to many types of needs. However, Dr. Primas said that the most typical cases included ear infections and respiratory ailments. In these cases, the administration had the capabilities of prescribing and giving the proper dosages of medicine. Contributions provided for many of the supplies. However, the Arizona Department of Health Services also helped fund the project. Not only did the clinic help the but it also gave valuable in-house experience to College of Nursing students. Colette Toronto, research specialist for the project and graduate student, explained that the project gave students a different perspective. Toronto said, " We get a different perspective on how research works rather than the theoretical approach that you would get in a class. " Graduate students helped with forming medical records and organizing the general paperwork. The project also benefited undergraduate students because they were able to help with giving immunizations and drawing blood samples. Toronto added that the project was a good public relations move for the university. Apparently, the project created a positive feedback for the recipients of the medical care. Most parents believed the service was very valuable to them and they would highly recommend it to in the same situation. the streets of downtown Phoenix, a homeless woman looks for a safe place to rest. The College of Public Programs studied the behaviors and effects of living on the streets. Photo by Julie Knapp Homelessness — it was a startling reflection of the economy. Unfortunately, no solution has been found and more than likely, nothing is going to fix the whole situation. However, the College of Public Programs conducted a year-long study and the homeless problem in Maricopa County. Kathleen Ferraro, associate of justice studies, said members of the community were concerned about the nature of homelessness. " We want more information about the resources available to the people and insight about the major gaps and problems facing homeless people in Phoenix. " The college was approached by a member of the community, and this concerned citizen asked if anyone would be interested in the project. The same person provided a gift to make the study and valuable. Ferraro headed the call to action by the college. She said, " It was an opportunity to help the public. " During the year, several aspects of homeless people were studied. For instance, the college first noted basic statistics: exactly how many were a home? Students majoring in justice communication, and public affairs, joined and gathered results. Graduate students also helped with verifying information compiled in the ethnographic component of the study. The study also included a history of homelessness. According to Ferraro, the homeless problem in the United States dates back to the mid-1800s. And the problem within Maricopa County had also been long existing. The college examined the impact of HIV and analyzed the financial of the people, and they also looked at how homelessness affected youths. The results were presented at a in May to the general public and professionals within the College of Public Programs. The study provided viable solutions to look at the overall homeless problem in Maricopa County. White Mountain Apache Tribe This year was a year of cooperation and conjunction between ASU and the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The traditional methods of childcare and education were often criticized, especially methods practiced by Native Americans. According to studies, children lost a piece of culture when they were separated from their families and placed into non-Indian homes to be reared differently. However, the School of Social Work initiated a training program that would supervise the education of so they could help children keep their sense of identity. They wanted to insure that the Native American children could cope with their specific needs. Edward Gonzalez-Santin, a research specialist for the school, felt ASU was very fortunate to be able to work on a project with an Indian tribe. " I think we are the first university to work with a tribe this way, " Santin said. The school established a fund to handle American Indian Projects, and they used an $89,000 grant to establish a Child Protective Service Academy. Santin added that the academy will be a culmination of 60 hours over a two-week period and students can earn up to six credit hours by The academy trained professionals to handle the problems that may occur. This insured proper counseling and created a continuum within the department. Santin also said that they are close to the tribe to insure proper training in the future. " Many of White Mountain Apache Tribe members are students at ASU, and they have been particularly in finishing the project, " he added. These students were bilingual, thus making training easier for everybody. Another goal was to recommend a standard to certify Child Protective Service trainees which was acceptable to the tribal sovereignty. Ultimately, the academy was to provide a place to discuss legal assistance to the tribe and to promote acceptance between tribal and non-tribal agencies. school of social work Training for success, Cheryl Redsteer and Rea Lupe work on improving the treatment of Native Americans. The School of Social Work created a program that promoted the maintenance of cultural identity.

The ASU West lab was developed to care for the children and to give students practical experience. Photo by Kim Kaan lab school is a way to research cold teaching with child development. Just when students with children thought there was no hope of to school, ASU West proposed an idea that would soon relieve the headaches of finding good child care. ASU West, in conjunction with Preschools, introduced a new Child Development and Family Studies Lab School. The school gave ASU West the opportunity to prove that there are alternative strategies for child care at the workplace. Paul Miller, assistant professor of psychology at ASU West, initiated the idea of having a lab school. He said that several members of the faculty expressed a need for child care. Therefore, he came up with the concept of a lab school. " A lab school is different from a daycare facility, " Miller said. " The lab school is a way to integrate research and teaching with child development. " Conveniently located on campus, the research facility lab school was open for children, ages two-and-a-half to five years old. In addition to a safe place for children to learn, ASU West created the school to benefit students who wanted to practice child care for their professions. Those students were primarily education, psychology and family studies However, Miller said, " the center is open to anyone who wants to observe children. " The center provided a place for students to interact with children on a one-to-one basis. The lab school and playground were also equipped with video cameras, one-way mirrors and microphones, so students and teachers could observe interacting with each other. This personal interaction was to learning more about the and effective child care. In addition to the student assistants, Sunrise Preschools hired professional teachers to educate the children with a learning-based curriculum. Miller said, " The goal of the lab school is to show students what high- quality child care centers are all about. " Misconceptions lurk around every campus. Feelin gs of insecurity sink in once you become a part of ASU; this changed as you became with the university. Unfortunately, the misconceptions created stereotypical attitudes toward ASU, and the university ' s image started to crumble. But students who looked beyond the stereotypes saw something else. The school was human. Instead of being high-brow, people were cordial. Each college aided in the success of the students. Services, such as computer labs, were provided for their convenience. Although attendance was rarely taken, the professors knew who was there and who was not. They generally rewarded the students who were enough to go to class every day. Despite these misconceptions, most students liked the choice they made when they decided to attend ASU. Many of these students were willing to support their opinions. " I think ASU is a very conservative college, " said Alice Foust, senior major. Unlike the other universities, Foust added that the older population to ASU. The returning was a unique aspect of ASU ' s social content. Stacey Robinson, junior education major, said, " I think the campus is a very immaculate place and is a very nice place to go. " In addition to its cleanliness, the university had many positive experiences to brag about. The university took top honors in many contests and statistics. Fourteen colleges contributed to make the one of the best. An elite faculty made constant And ultimately, the university supported their students. A reassuring motive for attending ASU was the fact that the school has been around for so long, said Mary Ellen Lippold, administrative secretary for business services. " It ' s like a city of its own with 40,000 students, " said Jan Cox, senior English major. Once the surface was scratched, the university ' s appearance started to glow. ASU was more than big classes and little students. Professors cared and your identification card proved to be more than just a ticket to a exam. Walking to class, students cross Palm Walk to go to campus. The Palm Walk bridge allowed students to get from one side of University Drive to the other easily.

At Arizona State University, it wasn ' t uncommon to find people who didn ' t socialize with oth- ers merely because of the color of their skin. Charles Williams was one of ASU ' s few African American students, compared to the 43,000 other students on campus. He came to ASU with a unique background. That background helped him acquire his unique perspective on the issue of race relations in the United States and on ASU ' s campus. Williams grew up in Europe, and attended school with Italians, Germans, Greeks, and English people. He had experienced the mythical melting pot that America hoped to one day achieve. " There was a common bond in Europe because peace was always stressed as being important, " Williams said. He said that was Continued on page 304 Playing on his flute, Charles Williams enjoys the setting of the art building.

" Today, if peace and unity were stressed in the U.S., people would be able to look at one another not by the color of their skin, but at what is in their heart as a person, " Williams said. Unfortunatly, this was not always the case, and people had trouble with groups outside of their own. Williams learned this first hand, even among his own friends, because his was white. His friends looked down on his relationship with her. Although he wasn ' t naive to its existence, it Williams to run across prejudices within his own circles.

A senior, Williams said he also ran into social barriers with his teachers, students, and coworkers. He said barriers were caused by stereotypes that took time to break through. Progress was made when people got to know him and could look past his skin color. " In America, it seems that every issue is looked upon as black and white, " said. " This is because most people aren ' t totally black and very few are totally white. " Williams, who was also of Indian and English heritage, questioned why society only saw him as black. It seemed as if those parts of him were disregarded because of visual appearance. he said, a person should not have been judged by the color of their skin, but based on the person that was within. This way a person ' s character and integrity were the real judge of who they were, he added.

For students who came from small towns, ASU was probably overwhelming. For Jacquie Torres, a sophomore studying political science, it was. " More people go here than lived in my whole town, " Torres said. That town was Alamaguardo, NM. Torres graduated high school in a class of 430 people. To most people, that didn ' t seem very s mall until it ' s considered that Torres ' high school was the only one in town. It served a neighboring air force base as well. When Torres came to ASU, she felt a little lost yet excited to be in a place so lar ge. " When I first came here I thought, ' Wow this can ' t be just a school, " she said. At first, the overpopulated university community could have been overwhelming to a student who had not experienced the rush of a big city before. The crowded classes were the worst. " It feels like you ' re not even in class, " Torres commented. " You go to class and they are so big. [The professors] don ' t really know your name, you ' re just there. " What was the result of attending such a large university? " It ' s definitely made me more Torres said. " If you ' re not a little bit over here, you ' re just to get swallowed up. " One way students avoided getting swallowed up was to join some sort of social group. Torres chose the marching band. " People join fraternities or sororities. I think that ' s a really good thing to do when you come down here, " she said. Although the crowded classes and crowded campus malls made life at ASU less than comfortable, the opportunity to grow was abundant. " If you come here set on learning you ' re going to learn, " Torres said. " I think you can grow more here.

Many students who enjoyed sports but did not have the time to commit to a team found a place in the intramural program. " I joined intramurals to have fun and find good said David Bourguignon, a major who participated in several tournaments at ASU. " I pick up sports eas- ily. I wish school came that way. " Bourguignon played in the racquetball tournament, where he made it to the semi- finals. He also planned on playing softball in the spring. Of all the sports he had participated in, Photo by Craig Steeves Bourguignon said that was his favorite. Bourguignon had been playing sports since the age of eight. His experiences in football, soccer and tennis tournaments helped him learn special skills. " It ' s a good way to learn he said. " Whatever you ' re good at, you want to make it a majority of your life, " Bourguignon added. Intramurals were organized by the Student Recreation Complex and opened to students and faculty members. Taking place in both fall and spring semesters, they offered team and individual competitions. That option was great for students like Bourguignon. " I find it hard to join team sports, " he said. " It is too difficult to get a team with all your friends at the same time. " Although students who participated in intramurals didn ' t have the rigorous demands of student-athletes, they did experience some rewards.

In the case of ASU junior Rob Bateman ' s parents, they felt virtually no pain. " When I want to go out of town, I tell them that I have to go visit a graduate school and to send a little extra money, " said Bateman. " Really, I ' m going hiking for the weekend or to LA to party with friends. I ' m just pulling the excuses out of my hat. " Bateman knew the excuses were really lies little white ones. He said he felt comfortable telling these lies to his parents for their own He didn ' t want to ruin his good-student " They work very hard, and they do send me money. I don ' t want to take advantage of them so I generate lies, " he said. " I have a job. I work hard too. But sometimes you need to get out of Phoenix once in awhile. " What students told their parents compared to what they were actually doing was not The key was to be believable. Bateman had that down to a science. For example, Bateman once decided not to attend ASU for an entire year. His parents thought he had only sat out for a semester. " I ' m sure a lot of ASU students have told their parents, ' my books are going to cost $300, ' when really they only cost $150, " Bateman said. " You never know when your parent ' s financial situation will change or when they ' ll cut you off. " " They always believed me, " he said. " Always. They still do. " For that, Bateman planned on making it up to them when he graduated in 1994 by buying them nice or by doing nice for them. His dad, however, thought payday was May 1993. BY RENEA D.

For many foreign students, making American friends was difficult. problems made some situations uncomfortable between foreigners and Americans. Although foreign students had to be the best in their countries to come to America and study, their lack of English generated another idea.

Medvidovic had similar problems in making friends at first, but he found a good friend, and married her. His wife, Jennifer, helped to him, and drill him on American speech. Medvidovic felt that the first year being in America was the back-breaker. Now with an American wife, and a green card on the way, he seemed as American as if he was born here. One stereotype of foreign students included the fact that they seemed to study all the time. " They want to be a part of it, but the don ' t get involved, " Khatri said.

For some students, religion was a prominent aspect of ASU. Photo by Tina Rasmussen For many students at ASU, the religious on campus played an important role in balancing the spiritual and social aspects of their lives. Like most things, however, this was not true for all people. For one student, her religious experience left her with a sour taste in her mouth. Grace Hoff was a at ASU in the fall of ' 88, and she was eager to make friends. When a group that she had played volleyball with invited her to a Bible study, she accepted. That first Bible study lead to and Hoff became open to the beliefs of her new friends. " I wanted to meet good people when I came to school, " Hoff said. One of the primary concerns of the meetings was to avoid any miss steps from their conception of the path of rightousness. Hoff accepted all this with only minor hesitation. She had started to gain weight, but she had given up smoking and drinking. She began to have doubts, however, when it became clear how judgmental her new church was of those with different beliefs. Other new initiates were told they couldn ' t associate with Catholic friends. Hoff herself was told that her grandmother — somebody she ' d considered one of the most decent people she ' d known would certianly go to hell. The combination of this extreme intolerance and the church ' s harsh set of rules eventually lead to the point were, in April 1989, she broke with the church and tried to return to her life. " I went through a lot of problems when I left the church. " she says. Her friends barely acknowledged Hoff. Her grades floundered as she avoided even coming to for fear of running into them. " It was definately a learning experience, " said Hoff, without resentment. Attempts were made to contact the church for comment, but they did not respond.

Some of the most obvious effects were the reduction of classes, the reduction in staff, cuts in services, and the postponement of the opening of the Goldwater, Computing Commons and Life buildings. " I blame the budget cuts for not finding out about getting an until two months past the deadline, " said Dave Hascher, a computer science graduate student. However, Hascher was one of the lucky graduate students who did receive an assistantship position. In many departments, the cuts meant less teaching assistants. This brought an increased load of work for both the professors and the teaching assistants. " We have not been able to hire as many to support our classes, which has made it somewhat harder on the students, " said Bill Neumann, a Ph.D. candidate in the department of computer science. " Likewise, [Engineering Computing Services] hasn ' t been able to keep all of the computer systems under maintenance contracts, so when equipment fails, it can take awhile to get it fixed. " The budget cuts reduced ASU ' s ability to keep Continued on page 335 Sporting a warning sign, the Computing Commons building, a new computer facility, waits to be opened by the university.

" Students bitch and complain about the lack of services, " Hascher said. " But, the talk of tuition hikes brings even more bitching and complaining. " Although a raise in tuition may not be popular to all students, Hascher felt that half of the money coming from the tuition hike should be returned in the form of financial aid. This would help to provide for those with financial troubles. To combat the problems with the services, ASU officials considered add- ing a mandatory $50 fee to all students in efforts to keep up maintenance of the com- puting sites.

" I have found that the center is very helpful, " Dittle said. " They have job listings that contain in the Valley. " The center helped in other ways as well. " They give you help with resumes which makes it a lot easier on a person looking for a job, " Dittle said. All three students found common ground in their perspectives. While freedom seemed to be in the forefront of the good, overwhelming responsibilities pulled up the rear. " Having freedom is nice, but knowing you have to support yourself can be scary, " said Dittle. Bankey agreed. " I like freedom and being on my own terms, but the responsibilities of normal life and school makes you wish that you had the best of both worlds. " Finally, Casillas added, " When you are on your own it requires a lot of discipline to juggle school work, a job and time out to have some fun. " Although it was tough, the advantages of being on their own for most students outweighed returning to the nest. " I like living on my own and we all know it ' s not easy, " said Bankey.

Photo by Tim Gibbons DECIDED Amy Winslow was a rare ASU student. that she did made her exceptional. What she didn ' t do was her claim to fame — she chose a major and didn ' t change it. Many college students often found themselves changing their majors more times than they changed TV channels. Some students entered ASU as business majors and with psychology degrees. Changing majors meant a longer stay on campus. Winslow, a senior who transferred from Mesa College, made her mind up before starting ASU as a chemical engineer For her, she didn ' t waste time or money from major to major. " It turned out that I love it! " she said three years later. She loved it although she described it as " science-oriented " and " math-intensive. " Math was her toughest subject; she was a C student in math. That alone would have driven most students to the registration site. How did she stick with her major? " Sheer determination, " she said. " I force myself to learn (math) and do it. It ' s still my weakest point. Most people can do it off the top of their head. At least I can keep up. " There were times at least once a month when she wanted to change her major, but those thoughts were short-lived. " You entertain the thought, but it passes, " she said. Winslow, who is president of the ASU chapter of American Institute of Chemical Engineers, could not fathom having any other major. Co-ops with Dow in Texas reinforced her " You have to do something you really like first, " she advised. " You ' ll stick with it. This may sound weird, but you should worry about employment later.

Down by 25 percent, according to some pessimistic researchers. That statistic didn ' t send ASU students to the altars. But there were people who did meet their mates at ASU. Take seniors Marcia Schoolcraft and Paul Swardstrom, for example. Now Mr. and Mrs. Paul Swardstrom, the two actually heard music in the air when they saw each other — they met in marching band. " We always saw each other in the practice room in the music building, and we talked in there, " recalled Marcia. " We were just friends for awhile. " Paul was the " friend " who listened to Marcia ' s boy trouble until she broke up with the old boyfriend. Then he made his move. The old " just friends " claim lasted for about two months after the beginning of their freshman year. On October 25, 1989 they were officially " going out.

Tim takes a picture of me taking a picture of him. Photo by Amie Madden " I hate getting pictures taken of me. " Sure Tina, that ' s why you always pose for them, right? Photo by Tim Gibbons Well, here we are — at the end. I would like all of you to know how proud I am of this book. We set out to do a difficult task, and we did it well. Scratching the surface of ASU proved to be a challenge but the results are well worth the hard work. I hope you all agree. First of all I want to thank the photography staff for their outstanding work. I believe we had the largest staff in history with almost 20 shooters. And the only person who could handle them all was Tina. I want to say that you helped me keep my sanity. Whenever I wanted a picture, you gave it to me — on time. I know that being in charge of so many people was not always a bowl of cherries, but you were perfect. Tim, you always were ready with a smile and a photo for any occasion. You made the office a bit more bearable. Bill, I ' m so glad we had you on our team. I was always able to count on you to handle the things no one else wanted to do. Suzanne, you turned out to be as good a friend as you are a photographer. You helped me to feel less like a boss and more like a person. Roxanne, speak up! You just hang in there and soon the insanity will seem so very natural. Craig S., to you I just want to say the office hours are worth two points per hour. And Steve, try to find a nice girl and settle down. Now the copywriting staff. Renea I wouldn ' t have had your job for the world. Thank you for being there for us. We never counted on having only six copywriters but you were instrumental in recruiting any photographer, section editor and executive who could spell to help out. Your wit and style came at just the right moments. I especially loved your " white-boy-gettin ' -jacket.

Kim, the YP, soon you ' ll have the position of YQ. I hope you do well. Sarah, if I hear how many days you have left to go somewhere again, I ' ll scream. Wencke, you were a great organizer. Sara, Marlene and Jill, I wish I could have seen more of you guys. But, I know what it ' s like to juggle a job and school. And Claudie, wake up! Tina Russo, you were instrumental in making this year an enjoyable one. Thanks for all your hard work in the office and, most of all, outside of it. The parties were great fun. Lance, although we gave you an impossible job, you did your best and we appreciate it. Craig, we couldn ' t have made it through the boring staff meetings without your what-I-did-last- weekend stories. Keep them up, but be careful. Julie, I was a little worried about being editor, but you made me feel like I could handle it. Your faith in me meant a lot. Now, I would like to thank the one person who made all of this possible — my husband Dave. If I were able to, I ' d dedi cate this book to you. I could never have survived this year with Trying to explain ... well, I don ' t know what he ' s trying to explain. Dave plays Win Lose or Draw at the swim party. Photo out you. You were by Amie Madden always there for me, even though you had so much to worry about yourself. You made me keep with it when I wanted to quit and you made the sweat and tears mean so much more, just because you were proud of me. Most of all, thank you for not letting me come back next year. Everyone deserves more than these words here, but I just want all of you to know that I am proud of you and forever indebted to you for your dedication, talent and friendship — Amie " Hmm... does this thing go here?
