The team sparked school spirit at each game. Photo by Sky Collins The university presented many challenges to students, faculty and staff. To many, it was a challenge to wake up every morning to hear a lecture, to find a parking space and to find one good reason to be in school. With all the challenges, many believed they were just one more number, one more source of tuition, and one more face in the crowd. In one way, they were right. To those who looked inside the campus from an outside perspective, ASU offered a stable environment where each culture, religion and political belief was respected. In a competitive race for academic excellence, the university always managed to place on top. All 14 colleges earned its through research and achievement.

Professionals and students in the College of Architecture watched for trends in their field of study. The estimated loss in California alone for one year of earthquakes was $13 million dollars, according to sources at the department. But after years and years of devastating losses, trial and error helped these designers finally hit a gold mine. Buildings that are designed and right can withstand the fiercest and the windiest tornadoes. Yuri Sheydayi, associate professor of architecture, said " All buildings are made to withstand earthquakes and tornados, some just don ' t. " He added that the endurance was found to be in the structure of the building and not necessarily the design, which offered hope to those who designed the various buildings affected by floods and quakes. However, the College of Architecture still the importance of careful and development to those students pursuing a career. Students from the University of were the first to figure out that to construct a building that could all these forces, they must first do experimentation on the site where the building was to be built. Then, students constructed a model and placed it in a wind tunnel. The appropriate ratio of wind and the velocity was measured and taken into consideration when designing the structure. The specifics sounded complicated, but could be easily figured out in one simple formula. As long as the area was equally supported, the building can withstand almost any natural disaster. In addition, students at ASU the design of homes rather than buildings and skyscrapers. Kami Sutter, a freshman student, said, " It doesn ' t bring in as much money as huge buildings do, but knowing that I will someday keep a family safe makes it worthwhile.

Students at the College of Business prophesied the need for an international business studies program long before authorities. They wanted to learn about other cultures and broaden their business horizons. The College of Business answered this plea by offering a 30-hour certificate in international business that approximated a degree. Daniel Brenenstuhl, associate of management, explained the surge of interest in this area. He said, " I think a lot of people are realizing that there are diverse cultures in the United States. " He added, " Cultures may be different from each other but they ' re not better or worse. That ' s the kind of learning people can bring into the American workplace. " Cultural differences existed in the way business was conducted across the globe. The mushrooming of multinational and interdependence in world trade put a totally different complexion on business studies. " The Italian conducts business different from the German. You need to know the culture you work and operate in, " Brenenstuhl said. He added, " You need to understand the market to sell in the market; you sometimes work with employees who have different ways. " Students working toward the certificate participated in international exchange activity where they took part in seminars with business leaders overseas. Likewise, students from overseas came to ASU to study and the common market system. 4 Brenenstuhl said that the upswing in international business studies would " We ' re becoming more international. I don ' t think we ' ll become less international, " Brenenstuhl said. He said that in the future instead of teaching international business, students in the business college would take an international orientation course.

" —Gary Bitter, chairman of the international media and computers department Computer-integrated teaching played an enormous role in the college classroom. For many students, a hand-held computer will be as commonplace as the conventional textbook and No. 2 pencil. Gary Bitter, chairman of the media and computers department, had no doubts that computers would play a major role in the classroom. Bitter said, " I see technology as being an integral part of the classroom. Technology will be used to problem-solve. " He also said that the classroom was a learning environment where children have problems that they solve. Bitter added, " The best success has been met at the preschool level, where children explore the environment and gather data. " " It could be a problem in the community, in math, science or planning as simple as a party, " Bitter added. " This technology could go as far as out the acid rain problem in the A program in the department required a compulsory course that was used as a tool to teach various subjects. Bitter does not foresee the computer replacing the teacher. He just thinks that the teacher ' s role will change. According to Bitter, the teacher will be more of a facilitator as opposed to an instructor. Therefore, instructors will have to the computer and its software as an essential part of the curriculum. Many university professors encouraged their students to visit computer labs. He also said, " There will be greater demands on teachers to keep pace with technology while the ' tedious types of things ' diminish. " Since everybody else was making good use of computers, he hoped education would too. Bitter said, " There is not one single area of life that the computer has not Technology is changing the world. " He did not believe that the introduction of computers into the elementary school classroom would dehumanize it. On the contrary, he said computers made learning more exciting and challenging. ■ Story by Nachammai Raman Computers enhance education professor roles change as technology thrusts its .

Solar Phoenix, a teardrop-shaped vehicle, captivated the eyes of students as it cruised past the ASU bookstore. Solar Phoenix was the latest design by the ASU solar car team. Team leader Jon Sholar, a senior mechanical engineering major, said, " The unique design of the car was to improve the aerodynamics in order to increase the speed. " In order to ge t inside of the car, the entire top was opened and the driver buckled in. The driver used a walkie- talkie to communicate with an outside team member in case of problems or vision. " It gets pretty hot in there if the car isn ' t moving, " said Eric Brogren, one of the team drivers. Brogren added, " When the car is enough air flows through the bottom to keep the driver comfortable. " When the solar-celled top was opened, students clamored around and looked at the vehicle ' s interior. Sholar said, " The top of the car is made up of thousands of tiny solar cells and it is designed to capture as much sunlight as possible. " The car took 18 months to design and a year to build. It weighed 650 pounds and held eight 12-volt batteries. The batteries were the heaviest component of the car. Sholar said that the team was interested in finding a lighter battery. He said, " We would like to be more of an ASU team instead of just an engineering team. " There were approximately 20 students on the team and most of them were majors from the College of Engineering. Sholar said he is looking forward to an increase in involvement from other colleges on campus. Dr. Byard Wood, director of the Center for Energy Systems Research, said one of the objectives of having a solar car at ASU was to enhance the learning experience which gave students a project to work on in a team atmosphere. In 1993, nine members from the team took the car to the 1993 GM Sunrace from Dallas to Minneapolis. ASU posted the fastest one-mile lap speed of 59 mph.

Like the 35mm camera, the video was adapted for artistic use. went beyond recording events, the video camera one step further to a creative level. To learn how the video camera was used as an art medium, the College of Fine Arts faculty offered several classes that emphasized video art. The three main classes were intermedia, which introduced a wide range of media; mixed media, an intermediate continuation course and new media concepts, a class offered at the senior and graduate levels. Muriel Magenta, professor of art, said, " Some people have more of a contemporary view of things, but those of us involved see this as an interdisciplinary thing. " She added, " We are open to all types of technology, traditional and non-traditional media. " Video was related to another media, the computer, in that it can be manipulated and edited to the satisfaction of the creator. Combining video and computer equipment for editing and creating became more familiar for artists. ASU provided video cameras and editing equipment available to students. The college limited enrollment to a of 15 students to ensure adequate equipment use. Magenta said that ASU students used the video equipment on or off-campus and often worked in groups. She also said, " We try to teach the role of an artist in a team setting. How do artists work and how can they work together?

Most graduate students never thought they would step into a classroom once they graduated with their bachelor ' s degrees. Though many found jobs in the 90s, many opted to return for two years and earn a master ' s degree. The Graduate College, tucked away in Wilson Hall, received thousands of each semester from potential Many of them applied from foreign countries. Students provided a variety of reasons for returning to school. First, they were waiting for the job market to improve. Secondly, they acquired advanced skills to take back to their home countries. Finally, they wanted to eventually a doctoral degree and go into According to statistics from the Office of Institutional Analysis, the Masters of Administration program offered by the College of Business was the most popular of all the graduate programs. This did not surprise students, considering the college ranked very high in the Gourman reports. Beverly Gettman, credential evaluator for the electrical engineering department, said, that students cannot find jobs with just a bachelor ' s degree. Gettman said, " They ' re not going anywhere with a bachelor ' s. " To many, the bachelor ' s degree of the 1990s compared to the high school degree of the 1980s. Gettman also said, " Students keep what they ' re interested in. A master ' s is more specialized. " ASU prided itself in being the only university in Arizona that offered a master ' s program in social work. Donald Fausel, director of the social work master ' s program, said, " The options with a bachelor ' s are limited. They (students) can go just so far with their careers. " Fausel added, " A master ' s degree is still a terminal degree in social work. Most mental health services are delivered by people with a master ' s degree in social work.

It is exciting to read a work and have your own beliefs on the subject and then have to defend them to others. " — Kristin Jeray, a freshman business major College High scores and good grades topped the priority lists of those students enrolled in the Honors College, especially Kristin Jeray. Jeray, a freshman business major, devoted much of her academic time to her honors classes. She said, " The Honors College is a community. There are unique people and you learn just as much listening to the knowledge of other students as you do reading a book. By the end of her sophomore year, Jeray will have accumulated approximately 63 credit hours, of which at least 18 will be from honors classes. In the Honors College, everybody was required to take a humanities course, which was a cross between humanities and literature and dealt with works dating from the beginning of time to the modern era. Honors sections such as geography, accounting and English aided Jeray in accumulating her required 18 honors hours. By enrolling in such classes, she took the opportunity to learn these required undergraduate studies on a higher level. According to Jeray, professors expect more of the honor students. They them to think on a higher level. They also stimulated students to find new solutions and ideas to old problems and required students to challenge the old ideas. Defending those ideas to both classmates and professors was also heavily encouraged, Jeray said. She added, " It is intellectually It is exciting to read a work and have your own beliefs on the subject and then have to defend them to others. " Because of the fact that students voluntarily enrolled in the Honors College, the stress which they experience was also purely voluntary. Jeray said, " You spend a lot of time actually preparing for class because you must be prepared. You want to succeed and want others to respect what you are saying. " " The work load is not a greater load, but it is more challenging, more hands on opportunities are available, " she added. Jeray, in pursuit of a complete education, slept under the stars at the Grand Canyon, worked with sophisticated equipment and looked at solar radiation diagrams. Jeray said she has learned to think critically about all subjects and at the same time, maintain her grades and GPA. ■ Story by Amy Tillis 52 HONORS COLLEGE ACADEMICS Focusing on finer things, Kristin Jeray, a freshman business major, stands on the stairs of the Honors College.

Heated debates about the College of Law ' s admissions policy encircled the ASU campus. Photo by Brian Fitzgerald COLLEGE OF LAW ACADEMICS The admittance of convicted-killer James Hamm into the ASU College of Law sent shockwaves throughout the Valley, outraging Gov. Fife Symington and other legislators who said that they would re-examine ASU ' s admission policy. However, Hamm believed these attacks were not about him attending the law school as much as they were an indictment of the criminal justice system. " I don ' t take this personally. I know I am a lightning rod for people ' s anger at the criminal justice system and the antipathy that exists between the legislators and the college, " said Hamm, 45, who is a paralegal for Middle Ground, a criminal-rights organization founded by his wife Donna in 1983. Hamm added, " We need to have a comprehensive review of the justice that would include punishment as one factor, but also restoration of the victim, the offender, and the restoration of the offender in his family and the community, and this will cause public safety, reducing the amount of criminals that cycle continuously through the system. " Hamm spent most of his free time battling the Arizona State Department of Corrections to improve prison conditions. " Prisons don ' t rehabilitate people. People rehabilitate themselves despite the system, " said Hamm. " Educating myself was the main key for rehabilitation for me, but it wasn ' t the only key. Prisons just aren ' t set up to rehabilitate, in fact in Arizona they have taken the word out of the criminal code so it is no longer a purpose. " Hamm ' s other key to rehabilitation stemmed from his belief in Taoism, a Chinese religion which focuses on personal inner harmony and the belief that each person has a unique meaning for life. Critics argued that due to the severity of Hamm ' s crime he will not be able to pass the state ' s Bar Character and Fitness test, and although he did score within the 96th percentile on the LSAT, he took the seat of people who could apply their degrees. Hamm was released from Florence state penitentiary on Aug. 7, 1992 , after 17 years in prison for the first-degree murder of Willard Morley. " I stand for all the people who get out of prison and succeed but who don ' t get any attention, and I also represent prisoners themselves, " Hamm said, who has on the Today show and been by the New York Times recently in defense of his admittance. ■ Story by Jason Hill the admissions policy. don ' t take this personally.

First-Year seminars, or 191 classes, gave students the opportunity to see the future of their studies. Gretchen Bataille, associate dean for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said, " The idea behind the seminars was to introduce new students to areas within majors that they might find interesting. " She added, " The classes would help new students who are undecided about a major learn more about their field of interest and perhaps they would make a decision earlier about a program of study. " According to Bataille, the program consisted of 82 courses, but to approximately 40 courses as the semester progressed. " We are a little disappointed, but it is a good beginning, " Bataille said. Gary Krahenbuhl, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said that spring courses would be significantly because of the lack in participation based on fall registrations. Krahenbuhl said, " One of the problems we had this fall was a number of non first-year students who enrolled in the courses even though they weren ' t supposed to be able to. " He added, " Because of a computer glitch, many unclassified graduate students were mistakenly allowed to enroll in the Krahenbuhl listed some other that contributed to the canceling of many seminars. Among them was a lack of knowledge among advisers of the content and requirements of the seminars. Bataille said the courses were designed to encourage new students to find a in college and developed skills to be successful in a large university. One of the key elements in the seminars was that each one was taught by a full-time faculty member who often was a department chair. Professors taught on a volunteer basis. The seminars were developed last year in order to help the students get through college as quickly as possible without taking unnecessary courses. Bataille said, " We believe this will help the university graduate more students on time and help many avoid the pitfalls common to new students.

But her honorary status would never have occurred if it was not for a defining moment in her life when she gave up her sales managerial position and ventured back to school. Supple earned her undergraduate degree in retail management from the University of Arizona in 1983. After gradua- tion, she obtained employment with Mervyn ' s in Los Angeles. One day at her job, where she was in charge of more than 350 employees, she went into premature labor and was rushed to the local hospital. " When I was there, I had some really great nurses that were taking care of me, " Supple said. " When my daughter was born, she had problems, but then again, I had great nurses help her. " She then said, " Then, I just had this life review (at the hospital), and I asked myself what was I really contributing to society. " Immediately after her decision, she called her husband and told him that she planned to quit her job and go back to school to obtain a degree in nursing. " When I told him, he just thought that I wasn ' t serious, so that became a real driving force for me to prove that I was serious, " Supple said. Supple said she became immersed in school, pushing herself to the limit. She wanted to prove not only to herself, but to her husband, that she could be successful in her transition. This year, Supple was given an award by the Arizona Nursing Association as their Outstanding Student Nurse of the Year for 1993. For her efforts, Supple appeared in Imprint, a national nursing quarterly in February where she was listed as one the best student nurses in the She said all of her awards would not have been possible if she did not enjoy what she was doing. Supple started at ASU in the fall of 1991 and assisted at St. Joseph ' s Medical in Phoenix with critical care, labor and delivery, as well as pediatric intensive care. Supple believed that the general is unaware of what happens at the College of Nursing. She said that she realized this when she went to the Memorial Union for lunch with other student nurses in their white nursing uniforms. A girl behind them asked if they were nurses. " She then asked, Wow, do you guys really get to work on people? ' She thought we just played with dolls, and then when we graduate, we practice on people, " Supple said.

Yet, News Problems was not a required course at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Telecommunications. Instead, students used it as an elective. Fritz Leigh, deputy director for the Cronkite School, said, " Ethics is certainly an important area. " However, Leigh said that many touched upon the subject in their classes; therefore, the journalism opted not to make ethics a required course. Leigh said, " At this point, the program is fairly structured. " He also said that the school liked to give students a greater flexibility in their course options. Ethics was already offered in a variety of settings, Leigh said. Garin Groff, a junior journalism major, said that he feels ethics was very to those studying the subject. He said, " I think ethics are important because journalists are trying to present the public with the truth. " Ethics reminded journalists that articles should be objective. However, ethics became most prevalent in the area of photography. With new computer software, such as Adobe Photosh op, photojournalists had the ability to alter photographs with a steady hand. Frank Hoy, professor of said that photo manipulation always concerned those in the business. According to Hoy, photo altering has always been a part of history. Digital manipulation was the most recent concern. " I think people are afraid of digital manipulation, " Hoy said.

Housing the only graduate training and education program, the School of Social Work provided the only opportunity in the state to particpate in the graduate program. The social work program offered three distinct curriculums for its students. The three, like many of the ASU colleges, of the baccalaureate, master and doctorate programs. The baccalaurate program prepared students for entry-level practice as a social worker, whereas the post baccalaurate programs aided students with a more advanced and direct practice. Because the presence of a social work program had yet to grace the campuses of the University of Arizona or Northern University, the ASU program the curriculum to meet the needs of all Arizona residents. In 1978 , ASU established a component of the school in Tucson to target students from southeastern Arizona. Sybil Delevan, assistant to the dean of Social Work, said, " We have students as far as Sierra Vista and Bisbee to attend the School of Social Work. " The School of Social Work facilitated approximately 876 students in which the number of graduates reflect the success of the school. However, this success was attributed to a few structural changes within the school ' s administration. One of the changes included a new dean. Emilia E. Martinez-Brawley, dean of the college, brought a new perspective when she arrived to head the school through another academic school year. Martinez-Brawley said, " " It is that the School of Social Work to encourage historically strong orientation.

" —David Schwalm, associate provost for academics programs Administrators at ASU West believed the time had come for students to choose a campus they wanted to identify with. For students, this meant their diploma would specify if they graduated from the West or Main campus. Administrators assured the transition would be studentcentered. To receive a degree from the West students had to complete 30 resident credit hours. The campus residency requirement existed as a prerequisite for at the Main campus. Any courses taken at ASU West or the Main campus prior to Spring 1993 were considered resident credit at either campus. The decision, made by ASU West only pertained to continuing undergraduates who took courses during the transition period, which began in the Spring 1993. When ASU West first opened to students, it was just another place to take ASU courses. However, with popular demand, the satellite school provided full academic services to its students. As the result, the school received accreditation from the North Central Association. According to David Schwalm, associate provost for academic programs, the accreditation gave the West campus a chance to grant degree in its own name. Schwalm said, " It gave ASU West an individual standing in terms of degree programs. " He also emphasized that the West was still strongly affiliated with State University, but in his opinion. it was to the advantage of the students to have a place that they can identify with. " Independence is a good thing, but it is also very important to maintain the with the Main campus to ensure the quality of our facility, " Schwalm added. Before the decision, to eventually accredit the schools was ever made. ASU President Lattie Coor investigated ' the consequences and he found it would be beneficial for the students to have a full-time facility such as ASU West. The choice of campus, according to Coor, was like making a decision about the college or department the student wants to graduate from. " It is our judgment that as part of the accreditation of ASU West, this was the best way to ensure the school ' s identity, ' Coor said.

The Freshman Year Experience (FYE) acquainted with the university, thus it made the transition between and high school easier by initiating programs that would provide useful tips. Melissa Ferrell, director for the Palo Verde East and West halls, said, " This program helps adjust to university life and helps them feel that they belong here, which in turn encourages them to get over their fears. " The program opened to both on and off-campus students and provided many other useful such as the Education Support Program, an individual and group tutoring session. The program also provided an extra section of LIA 100, a course that gave information about university adjustment and survival. Students earned three credit hours for LIA 100, which was essentially a course that offered tips and advice to any new student. The course focused on issues such as time management, note-taking, library use, academic and career planning and goal setting. The FYE Resource Center, another benefit, introduced other campus resources important to the success of new students at ASU. Representatives from the University Advising Center, Minority Assistance Program, Student Recreation Complex, Student Health, and Services discussed special programming in their departments. Discussions included information about choosing a major, healthy and in campus organizations. The FYE newsletter updated students about all campus activities. Residential halls, Palo Verde East and West, planned the program in Sept. 1992. However, Aug. 15, 1993 marked the official start of the program. Ferrell was surprised about the number of freshmen. She said, " It was amazing. Fifty to 10 0 people showed up for the programs that were being taught, but then again, there were no classes for them to go to in the summer. " According to Ferrell, FYE was invented because ASU freshmen were the smallest class with 800 students, and coincidently, had the highest drop- out rate.

Eddie Davis, a senior construction major and supervisor for Taco Bell, said, " I don ' t think there is much evidence to the Freshman 15. It is a matter of watching what you eat and when you eat it. Davis also said that students should just use their common sense. " I ' ve seen people ask how much fat is there in a Taco Bell bean burrito, and then they go across the hall and buy two pints of Ben Jerry ' s cookie dough ice cream, " Davis said. Taco Bell was located in the Memorial Union and Palo Verde Main, one of the residence halls. The Taco Bell inside the dorm was built in less than two weeks and opened during the first week of the Fall 1993 semester. According to Davis, residents asked for the restaurant to be built near the halls because many did not have cars or felt uncomfortable to walk alone to Taco Bell or McDonalds. He said, " We are serving to a generation that is used to fast-food restaurants, so the trend is to provide healthier food. " McDonalds, Taco Bell, and Kentucky Fried Chicken always provided brochures that gave nutritional information to each product. Jennifer Stewart, a junior international major, said that Taco Bell received a lot of business. She said, " I think it is because the price is cheap and it is the perfect college food. " Food such as bagels, yogurt, soda, cookies, candy and pretzels are accessible from just about anywhere on campus, from early morning thru the late-night study hours. Residence halls also housed mini-mart stores that allowed students to buy almost anything with a " Maroon and Gold " card. With the " Maroon and Gold " card, students used a cash equivalency plan where they paid 100 before the school year. Throughout the year, they gradually used the card as credit.

Bernard Jackson, community fellow for the African-American culture, said that the dorm, otherwise known as Umoja Hall, stood for unity, noting Umoja was the Swahili word. The community studied the history and culture of Africa to understand African and experiences. The hall was located in the " C " wing of Ocotillo Hall and was made available to any student. Reneldo Russell, a freshman architecture major, said that he was just placed in Umoja Hall upon arrival at ASU. Russell said, " I am glad they put me in this dorm because I met somebody who would also be living here. " Russell, who was from the Bahamas, said that he likes learning about African-American history through the Umoja Hall program. The Residential Life office introduced two other specialized dorms in the Fall of 1993. The American Indian Hall focused on the impact of social, economic and political issues confronting Indian nations and tribes. The community also studied spiritual and values of the Indian ways. The Natural Resources community offered students the opportunity to learn about the and how to protect the earth, in w hich commu nity members sponsored a wilderness training and Earth Day. Another cultural community was the Pacific Rim Asia Hall, which studied the contemporary values of the peoples of east and southeast Asia. They focused on these regions because the issues had become important for American trade. Other special communities included the Wellness Floor, where students agreed to an alcohol and smoke-free environment and the Study Intensive Environment. Hanging out in the dorm, Randy Weatherton, a junior finance major, waits for a community meeting to start. Students participated in seminars, classes and group discussions to help better their awareness of their community.

Residents at Manzanita shared their hall with an ASU police officer. Corporal Al Phillips headed the trial-run program. He began his shift on. Thursday nights and stayed until 3 a.m. the next morning. Phillips said the program was not implemented to bust people. Instead, he said it is a move by the ASU police to set up educational programming and to students with the police department. According to Phillips, the program was like problem solving. " It is a good way to work with fewer people, " Phillips said. The program was also part of a larger project, Campus Outreach Police Station (COPS), in which education played an important role. He added, " Eventually, we would like to new projects, such as Operation ID. " Operation ID was a proposal to tag all postal belongings so that all mail would get to the proper owners with accuracy and speed. Phillips said, " We would also like to have all bicycles registered with our department. " The department would offer incentives, such as SECURITY RESIDENCE LIFE free movie passes, to those who registered. " The needs of the community are changing, and I am just resource in their environment, " Phillips said. When he spent his time at the dorm, he spoke to residents about safer environments and alcohol awareness. He emphasized that he was not at the hall to write tickets or to regulate the amount of alcohol consumption. He said he would support the residence if they needed help. He also would address all calls about false fire alarms to avoid unnecessary trips from police patrolling the streets. Bicycles, stereos and jewelry were among the most stolen items from the residence halls. Tracie Sexton, a freshman accounting major, said she did not see much action when the officer was present. Heidi Loeser, a freshman dance major, said, " I have just seen him in his office painting. " Phillips graduated from the University of with his bachelor ' s degree in art. He said, " It is a good way to break the ice between me and the students. " Students were still skeptical, but ASU DPS believed it was one of the better options to control crime and to increase awareness, Phillips added. with residents as they enter Manzanita Hall, Al Phillips, ASU police officer, questions a resident.

Photo by Gretl Roberts SECURITY RESIDENCE LIFE Staying THE LINES environmental issues concerned many ASU students who lived without a recycling in the residence halls. " Reduce, reuse, recycle! " shouted would- be environmentalists. Students, living on campus, wanted for a recycling They signed petitions and completed surveys to show the that there was a demand for recycling newspapers, plastics and aluminum. There were no " school-supported " recycling programs in any of the 13 residence halls. The lack of support convinced students to rally together and start a program of their own. A few of the residence halls assembled their own programs. Debbie Mangel, a freshman communications major who lived at Sonora Center, said " I ' m used to recycling because it ' s mandatory where I ' m from. " Mangel came from central Phoenix. Concerned students lined cardboard boxes against the walls that doubled as recycling bins. There were hopes for some sturdier bins in the future. Although finding receptacles for their recyclables was a bit troublesome, the students faced their biggest problem with the disposal of the items. The City of Tempe and its recycling division were willing to provide bins and pick-up service, but the ASU refused to allow them on campus for liability. Students felt they were victims of red-tape and their efforts seemed fruitless. However, they con- tinued to be enthusiastic and they approached avenues, such as contacting the Associated Students of ASU, the campus student " The problem is that it ' s just getting started. There ' s not a lot of education, and the details are still being worked out, ' said Lydia Breunig, a junior ecology and economic interdisciplinary studies major who lived in Best Hall. The ASASU, the student governing board, also listened to the concerns. The quest for a recycling program was to those at University of Arizona in Tucson and Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Jonalyn Leadbetter, director of environmental issues for ASASU, said, " Our mission statement is to coordinate a group that will facilitate a campus-wick recycling endeavor. " She added, " We want to incorporate a recycling program into every residence hall the Memorial Union, and each administration and academic building. " Recycling was the cry of hope this year. It began with the energy and devotion of students in the ASU residence halls, and it will with a promising plan for a long-lasting Tossing recyclables in a hand-made bin, Vanessa Bonet, a freshman undeclared major, and Jamie Brown, a freshman undeclared major, initiated their own recycling program. Recyclables consisted of aluminum cans, newspapers and plastics. ■ Photo by Nicole Hsu STORY BY NICOLE HSU RECYCLING RESIDENCE LIFE Heading for the recycling bin, Matt Wiese, a junior exercise major, does his share in saving the earth. concerns motivated to recycle. Photo by Nicole Hsu Do Not RECYCLING RESIDENCE LIFE community living, commonly referred to as " dorm life, " was one of the most liberating experiences about However, just like any other establishment on the ASU campus, rules and regulations must have been followed. Residence Hall were not drafted to prohibit residents from Instead, the university implemented such rules to protect residents from others who took of the dorm situation. Residence Hall policies ranged anywhere from alcohol consumption to waterbeds. Gina Booy, area coordinator for the residence halls, said that the alcohol consumption policy was the rule most commonly broken. According to Booy, living in a dorm did not exempt anyone under the age of 21 from the state law regarding alcohol. She said, " Violation of the alcohol policy begins immediately. " Booy also said that residents who defy the rule would be counseled the first time. She said that the residence halls provided " Let us help you be aware of the choices you are making, " Booy said. Although the majority of residence hall policies remained the same year, a few had been altered. For example, in past years, quiet hours were decided upon by individual floors. However, a written policy on quiet hours for every hall had been implemented to avoid inconsistencies. A new bicycle policy was also implemented. The fire department considered bikes in each resident ' s room a fire hazard. Last year, Booy said that a student discovered the fire department changed the rule. Therefore, Residential Life changed the policy, leaving it up to individual hall councils to decide if bikes should be allowed in dorm rooms. Residence halls cracked down on the drug policy. According to Booy, those caught violating this policy faced an appropriate punishment. Booy also stressed the importance of the student ' s desire for help. " We will work with students, " she said. " We don ' t want to just punish them and send them on their way. She added, " We will provide counseling and consultation. " Residence Hall policies often provided a sense of freedom to residents. But as with every home, students were for abiding to the rules and regulations of the residence halls. Getting comfortable, Barney loves his neck to be rubbed.

McClintock Hall housed 180 honor as well as the college ' s administrative offices and classrooms. Paul Stolz, a freshman chemical engineering major, said, " I like McClintock it is the closest to the campus. " McClintock was situated near Hayden Library, a place where many honor students spent many of their nights. Stolz added, " Everything is right there. " The residence hall accommodated students with 23 personal computers, which were linked to the university ' s main system. In addition, residents lounged in two areas that were provided with a study area, cooking and laundry facilities. Clinton Sandvick, a junior history major, said that all rooms are facing each other. He also said there was a courtyard in the middle where played football and volleyball. Occasionally, they would barbecue. This, according to Sandvick, had its benefits. " I have spent the summer in dorms, such as Cholla and Best Halls, and I can say that I think McClintock has a stronger community aspect. " Although Sandvick said that the summer may not be an accurate representation of the school year, he still believed that McClintock was one of the better dorms. He said, " It is really easy to get to know each other. " He attributed this to the dorms facing each other. " We see people walking back and forth, so you say `Hi ' at one time or Sandvick added. He lived at McClintock for three years. Sandvick said that he was on a first-name basis with the other students. He said, " Every year, I already know the people who are at the same grade level. " Sandvick added that he still wanted to talk to more freshmen. " McClintock is like a large support network, " Sandvick added. Honor students also faced the possibility of losing their school home if they did not meet the scholarship requirement. To continue in the College, students maintained a 3.25 grade point average. Freshmen received preferential assignment to available openings once accepted. Incoming students needed to graduate in the top five percent of their high school class. If recipients of the Regents ' Scholarships, National Merit Flinn Scholarships and Gammage applied to the Honors College, they were admitted automatically. Sandvick said that the requirements did him in one respect. However, he said, " I am still here.

RHA called the Guiness Book of World Records to possibly record the event in a future edition. Photo by Tim Gibbons he Residence Hall (RHA) was at it again. The organization often initiated activities for the residents to make living away from home a little more exciting. But, who ever thought they would go so far as to think of an activity involving a hugh latex piece of rubber and some balloons? That is what they did. RHA invented a water balloon launching Contestants needed to catapult a balloon as far as they could across the Student Recreation Center field. It did not matter how the balloon got to the other end of the field, but most people chose for their equipment a large latex rubberband and a couple of strong arms to hold the ends. Each team ideally consisted of three people. Two people stablilized the piece of rubber, and there was one person who served as the launcher. The launcher pulled the rubberband, holding the balloon, as far back as he could stretch it, and then let it go. Teams were limited in size due to safety reasons. Kolby Granville, vice president for RHA public relations, said, " Since the field was watered down earlier in the day and the bleachers were used to get a good angle for the launchings, it would have been unsafe to have more than three people climbing up and down the bleachers. " About five teams entered the competition. After the event, the furthest launch was at 150 yards. The problem with knowing the exact distance was that the SRC field was only 135 yards, and the winning launch shot the balloon over a wall and hit a building across the parking lot. However, the winning team members were experienced launchers and could not qualify to win any prizes because they were members of the RHA. The eligible team that won launched their balloon 127 yards, and the three-member team won tie-dyed t-shirts. Runners-up launched their balloons at 125 and 118 yards. The RHA passed out compacts discs to each member of the teams for their participation in the event. The CDs were donated from ASU ' s own KASR radio in exchange for advertising on the RHA ' s Channel 2. Channel 2 was a community bulletin board that was programmed through the residence halls as a system of announcements. Granville said, " There ' s a limited interest group in launching water balloons, and most of the people already had their own equipment. " He added, " I think it went very well. " The Guiness Book of World Records was contacted to see if there was a category for such an activity. There was no category for the longest water balloon toss, but Guiness Book was in knowing the results for possibly a future category in their book.

It was up to the resident to be creative and make a home away from home. The university provided the bare the basic furniture and the living space. But, the size and the quality depended on each of the residence halls. The basics did not come at a cheap price. Sonora Hall was the newest addition to ASU ' s living quarters. Although the accommodations were sufficient for the school year ' s stay, it did not compare to home. Michael Williams, a freshman computer major, said he had to bring blankets, towels and other everyday items to his new dorm room. " I wouldn ' t say that I like my room better than the one at home, " Williams said. " But, it is like a home away from home. " He also said that he brought all his summer clothes and a map. " A stereo was definitely needed, " Williams said. " You need to bring some sort of musical device. " Roommates often contacted each other before move-in to sort out the essentials. A mini-refrigerator, stereo, answering machine and microwave were definite " must-haves. " Williams said, " I don ' t think you should try to bring your whole room because you don ' t know how long you are going to stay, " noting that he always traveled light. " I would never bring out here anything that costs more than S300 to $400, " he added. Cholla Apartments were also part of the university ' s residential life program. However, the complex did not conform to the traditional dorm look. Denise Ely, a junior secondary education major, said that each apartment was completely The complex offered studio, one-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments. Each was furnished with couches, beds, desks, and dressers. Ely said, " I think Cholla is more like an than a dorm. " She said that they only thing residents bring were televisions and stereos. She added that unlike many dorms, each has its own kitchen. Residents brought their own pots, pans and kitchen utensils, but with a small deposit, which is refundable at the end of the semester, residents could rent them from the complex. 88 BARE NECESSITIES RESIDENCE LIFE Peeling like home, residents piled their clothes on every piece of furniture in their rooms.

The history of ASU ' s residence halls dated back to 1886 when the first unofficial was established by Hiram Bradford Farmer, the first principal and sole of ASU ' s prototype, the Arizona Territorial Normal School. This was a modest two-story adobe building, which boarded the school ' s first women students. Board cost $20 per month. Until 1972, any woman under the age of 23 was expected to live on campus, and this explained the prevalence of women ' s residence halls in the early part of ASU ' s history. In 1902, the first official on-campus dormitory for women was established. Alpha Hall became a men ' s dormitory in 1928. In 1903, East Hall, a female residence hall, was constructed and then, torn down to make way for Hayden Library. North Hall, another all-female dormitory, was established in the name in honor of Arthur ' s Matthews ' wife, Carrie, which later housed the Student Publications department and the Resource Center. Stadium Hall housed veterans during World War II. The male residence hall was re-named Haigler Hall in 1956 after great football player, Charles Haigler, and was closed down in 1978. Irish Hall, named after Frederick Irish, was a male residence hall until the mid- seventies when residence halls started becoming co-ed. It was the oldest of the existing halls. Irish taught all the courses at the Arizona Territorial Normal School and organized and coached the school ' s first football team in the fall of 1896. Gammage Hall was built in 1941. The female freshmen dormitory was named after Grady Gammage, a former president of ASU. Victory Village, located south-east Gammage, housed graduate students, their wives and children. It was composed of apartment units and operated until 1960. Wilson Hall was a tribute to George Wilson, a man who contributed 20 acres of land to the Normal School. Hayden Hall was named after the illustrious Carl Trumbull Hayden, an alumnus and a member of the U.S. Senate. Of the still-existing residence halls, McClintock Hall was named after James Harvey McClintock, one of the first 20 students of the Normal School and the first president of its alumni association. The other halls were built after 1954. They were named after Southwestern or Spanish names, except for the Best Hall, which was named after McOeal Best, a member of the first Board of Regents and the first president of the ASU Foundation. The newest residence hall to date was Sonora in 1990. nachammai raman HISTORY OF THE HALLS RESIDENCE LIFE tall on University Drive, Manzanita Hall was one of the tallest building in Tempe.

" greeted residents as they walked to their mailboxes. The sign captured many eyes. It was just one of the tactics used to lure students into attending the National Collegian Alcohol Awareness (NCAAW). The week featured awareness activities, centering around the theme, " Think Before you Drink. " Red and black signs displayed the slogan all over the dormitories. Planners also saturated the residence halls with informational literature. At Palo Verde West beach, students were given free condoms, sexually transmitted disease and pamphlets about sexual assault and acquaintance rape. -Sex on the Beach ' was about the importance of both alcohol and sex awareness. It was about how drinking impairs your judgment and how it may cause you to make choices like not using birth control, " said Heather Scott, a junior biology and resident assistant for Palo Verde East. The awareness week was held annually, but Scott believed this year was a success. She said, " I thought it went over really well this year and it impacted the students to be more aware and careful. " The Student Health Center also provided students with information alcohol and sex awareness. Planned Parenthood, a national family planning agency, supplied the Student Health Center with the materials, including birth control, sexually diseases, relationship and family counseling, pregnancy. They also had about legislative updates and their effect on students. The Residence Hall Association emphasized the importance of alcohol and sex awareness. The association continued to stress its importance throughout the year. Melissa Martin, a freshman geology major and a resident of Palo Verde East, " Residence life had an important job because by promoting alcohol and sex awareness, they were promoting success. People needed to realize that they couldn ' t just come to college to party, they had to have their future in mind. " Residents wore the red ribbons to state that they abstained from alcohol abuse. The Residence Hall Council also sponsored a dance where " mocktails " were served, a variation of cocktails without the alcohol.

They often worried about the overflowing of landfills, contaminating the Earth, paper and and saving nature ' s green. Because these issue raised such a concern, students and educators looked for a to ensure a healthy environment for future generations. As the result, the Residence Life Office offered a new program, which would address concerns. A new campus community in Best Hall called Natural Resources and the Environment emerged in the fall semester. The community housed approximately 50 residents but was also available for off-campus The community program was devised to students about the environment and improvements for the future. Students were expected to meet and even exceed the residence hall ' s objective, which was to serve as a model for other halls. Best Hall emphasized the importance of water conservation and recycling and hoped the other halls would follow. Water and electricity-saving devices were to be installed in up-coming Recycling bins for paper and aluminum cans were already used. Trey Manning, a senior psychology major, said, " Our overall goal is to make Best a " green " building, total recycling, regardless of what the university or city is Because the debuted this year, the community worked in conjunction with the Public Service also located in Best Hall, to provide more activities. Perhaps the biggest event was a one-day excursion to the Grand Canyon. Two vans took 30 people up to the Grand Ganyon for the 24-hour trip. Organizers wanted students from the specialized hall to get involved with their community and to re-introduce the beauty of the environment. Mike Moody, a sophomore education major, did not live in the community, but he was interested in the environment and its future. " If you ' ve never seen the Grand Canyon and if you get a chance, don ' t pass it up, " Moody said. " I wanted to go on the trip to go with a lot of neat people. " He added, " The main reason for the trip was to show us a different part of the world as a way to broaden our horizons and to see and experience nature. " Manning said he thoroughly enjoyed his trip. He said, " I was really pleased and impressed with the trip. Everyone came away with something special, educational or personal.

Residents from other colleges and universities had the opportunity to leave their respective to come see ASU at a regional conference, sponsored by the university. Every year at the conference, students gained knowledge about themselves through others and organizing the event. Members of the Intermountain Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (IACURH) gathered on campus to celebrate life at ASU and the Western region. Many felt privileged that the conference was held at the university. In the previous year, students commuted to Colorado for the big event. ASU fortunately won the bid by providing a full schedule of events for review to the Regional Board of Directors. The board then voted on which school had the best agenda. Organizers provided a detailed itinerary that included all activities, luncheons, guest speakers and recreational events, such as the annual dance. The IACURH organization represented all of the Residence Hall Associations in the seven states that make the Rocky Mountain Region, including Canada. Students met to exchange ideas about their schooling, social lives and possible career ideas. Their main goal was to gather students in a spefic area to information on time management, homosexuality, and running better hall According to Tracy Dudman, chairman for the ASU conference, IACURH was ethnically and culturally sensitive to all who participated Dudman, a senior arts and sciences major, also served as a resident assistant at Manzanita Hall. " It ' s all about ideas and exchanging thoughts and concepts. " Dudman said. She also said that the event centered around one theme, " All I ever needed to know I learned at IACURH. " Becaus e Robert Fulghum, an American author, was the initiator of their theme, he was invited to speak at the event. Fulghum was best known from his book, " All I ever needed to know I learned in kindergarten. " He accepted his offer and spoke to all participants at the event. He also took the opportunity to sign a few autographs for his literary fans. Dudman said that ASU had a phenomonal from all seven states and Canada for the event. Total attendance topped 450 st udents and faculty members. " We were pretty excited. We didn ' t think we would get that many people to come to Arizona, " Dudman said. She added, " We were flattered.

In Japan, they were to learn English in school. Many Japanese students, like Mitsuyo Kanada, came to the U.S. to perfect their English-speaking skills. Foreign-born students at ASU was not a rarity, but according to Kanada, the Asian population was not as prevalent as in other colleges and universities. A native of Aichi, Japan, Kanada lived in the U.S. for one year before transferring to ASU from a small Seattle community college. " I came to ASU to improve my English, " Kanada said. She said that in her Seattle college, she with many Japanese students, which was not helping her English. Kanada, a junior sociology major, said that she heard about the Sun Devils and their rival relationship with the University of Arizona through her English professor. " He would tell me that U of A was a better school, but I decided to come to ASU, " Kanada said. She added that he also would tell her of ASU " party school " status. Perhaps her biggest worry about the campus was its size. She said that she had difficulties finding her way around on such a big campus. " The weather was also very different, " Kanada said. " I came in August so it was very hot. " This did not her. In her semester, Kanada said she would continue going to ASU. She adjusted to campus by meeting friends of similar interests at the residence hall and in class. " I like my dorm because there is not too much noise and it is not to quite, " Kanada said. Although the living spaces were small, Kanada lucked out. She was never designated a roommate, she enjoyed the space that traditionally accommodated two people. " The only thing that I don ' t like about the dorm is that I can ' t cook in my room. ' In Ocotillo Hall, residents shared a community kitchen. Like Kanada, many did not enjoy leaving their room, preparing an elaborate meal, and then, walking all the way down the hall and up the stairs to eat dinner alone in their room.

Sun Devil fans felt the heat as the 1993 Homecoming festivities went underway. Festival 1993, " Feel the heat, " geared its agenda toward ASU students and returning ASU alumni. The week began a five-day celebration with an opening convocation and finished with the big win against the Homecoming game. The Homecoming Committee targeted students with many interests. One of the biggest events, Cultural Day, provided ethnic dances, food and activities on the West Lawn, which would highlight the diverse culture found in the ASU student body. Mike Thompson, ccordinator for Homecoming activities, " We approched every organization on-and-off campus, not all are students. They brought items and facts about their culture. " He added, " We had many different organizations, including off campus singing groups. " Many of the Homecoming activities were free for students, faculty and the Tempe community. The tradition of the Homecoming • parade was student organization and Greek fraternitied and sororities would walk down Mill Avenue with their own banners and floats. Funding for the floats came from the organizations and local The parade also featured a diversity of student organizations. Pitchforks, a a cappella group, added to the festivities with their songs, the Indian Student Association highlighted chants and dances from the Native American traditions. Homecoming officials announced royalty during the ceremony. Couples traveled through the parade in cars. The committee named Luke Tigaris and Jennifer Green as king and queen. They were selected by ASU staff and previous royalty members. Winners applied formally, which was then reviewed and narrowed by a screening committee in which the king and queen were chosen. The king and queen, as well as representative for each class, would represent Homecoming activities and participate in community service projects. Members from the local community also participated because they supported the university or they were former Sun Devils. Radio stations, such as KUPD and KVRY, supplied music.Continned on page 107 HOMECOMING STUDENT LIFE Standing in formation, the Sun Devil Marching Band marches in cadence.

Without a doubt, the ASU Marching Band, and Sparky walked at the end of the parade line to boost school spirit as the event came to a close. The city of Tempe agreed to hang up 64 banners in the area. Thompson said, " In cooperation with the city of Tempe, we had the privilige of putting up 64 banners, which helped immensly on the advertising of our Homecoming this year. " Coordinators also planned a pre-game party in front the University Activity Center, which was the hub of all festivities. The ASU pre-game party included all the different organizations on the ASU campus. In addition, off-campus vendors, entertainment and the ASU Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Perhaps the biggest tradition, which al so took place this year, was the latern walk to the top of " A " mountain. Thompson said, " The walk to " A " mountain is historical because many years ago, the seniors used to walk up " A " mountain with laterns and form their school year on the mountain. " He added, " Then, they would pass the laterns to the seniors. In keeping with that tradition, we have the walk up " A " mountain where ASU President Lattie Coor, Alumni Association Chairman Jon Thomas and Coach Bruce Snyder presented a speech.

His speeches on the subjects won him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. In his speech, he said, " The purpose of live is happiness. " Dalai Lama is believed to have been a reincarnation of the Buddha of Compassion. He will not die until his mission is complete. The Dalai Lama traveled around the world to speak of his people and his mission. He said that many people, not just Tibetans, are mentally unhappy because of a loss of hope. Many times, the loss in hope resulted in or in the worst scenario, suicide. Speaking to the large crowd, the Dalai Lama donned the traditional Buddha robes in burgandy and yellow sashes as he sat on the stage. He said that human action is both constructive and destructive. He added, " There is no point in neglecting our internal world. " He emphasized the importance of the individual. " There are two kinds of self. First, there is a strong sense of self, " the Dalai Lama said. The other, he added, was usually negative and lended itself toward trouble. He also said that the individual should be self- confident. " Through training, you can reduce your anger and hatred to become compassionate and patient. " In order to change the physical, mental and religious bodies, individuals must be motivated to Pursue a good education. ASU provided a good facility. " The Dalai Lama said, " We should all desire a harmonious world. " Story by Kim Kaan Beverly Cantwell, nursing Ruben Carrillo, aerospace eng.

According to student players, oozeball was exactly how it sounded. Oozeball was played just like outdoor volleyball, but instead of sand, it was played in a bed of mud. To prepare the game field, the field was soaked by a fire hydrant that was left on all night to create the muddy mess. Members of the Student Alumni sponsored the 1993 tournament. Julie Gans, president of the alumni association, said, " We used a tractor to dig up the field and tried to rake out as many rocks as we could before we soaked it. " The tournament was played at the beginning of each fall semester and targeted to incoming The event gave new students the chance to get to know each other in a different way. First impressions did not count. The 1993 Oozeball Tournament included teams from the Devil ' s Advocates, Student Foundation, the Resident Hall Association and the Memorial Union Activities Board. Organizations entered their team by signing up during Orientation Week and entered as many people as they wanted. The tournament normally took place on the Saturday before fall classes. Students also formed their own independent teams. The only requirement was that the students wear shoes. Hoses were used throughout the games to keep the courts " oozy " and to clean muddy players. Three to four oozeball courts were used at the same time as teams advanced to the quarterfinals. Outside sponsors, such as Crystal Water, the Phoenix Cardinals and Target, enabled the alumni association to provide food, coupons and t-shirts. The Student Recreation Complex provided officials for the game.

Kimberly Garrett, English 112 MALE CHEERLEADERS STUDENT LIFE With a crowd of approximately 70,000 Sun Devil fans, the Sun Devil cheerleaders projected their voices, so their cheers and chants could be heard. Luckily, the husky voice of the male cheerleaders also caught a few ears. Jeff Schaefer, an electrical engineering major, was one of those dependable male voices. Schaefer is one of six couples on the varsity team. The squads were divided into both varsity and junior varsity teams, The varsity team was responsible for performing at the football and men ' s basketball games. In addition, each male cheerleader had a female partner to serve as couple. He said that he is pretty good friends with his partner and served as support for partner when she had to flip or jump from high elevations. He also said that male cheerleaders tumbled, formed pyramids and helped with tosses during their rountines because some did not considered it " cool " for the guys to jump. Before being on the ASU team, Schaefer never had any cheerleading training before tryouts for the Sun Devil squad. He said that even though this was his first year cheerleading, he has been practicing martial arts for 10 years, which helped his flexibility. " I decided to tryout to keep busy during school, " Schaefer said. Before the actual tryout day, contenders trained in a 3-day clinic where they learned the necessary stunts. Schaefer said, " I had to learn how to do a back-hand spring, which I pretty much taught myself how to do. " He added that gymnastics also was not a requirement for tryouts, but once on the squad, the cheers and stunts were very gymnastics-oriented. The women ' s gymnastics coach served as the squad ' s adviser, so he said that the sport influenced the practice sessions, such as the warm-up and cool-down exercises. Schaefer said that many underestimated the cheerleading program. Although they practice five days a week and often traveled with the football team, the squad was not recognized as a " real " sport. Schaefer said, " None of us are on scholarship, and it was only this year that we started to use some of the ICA priviliges such as the training room. " ■ Kim Kaan MALE CHEELEADERS STUDENT LIFE To many, the price of sporting events was too much to afford, especially for the little ones. However, the Sparky ' s Kids changed that. Greg Walaitis, director of marketing for the Intercollegiate Athletics, designed the program, which began this year. " The reason I invented the program was because everybody I come in contact with asks for service to happen in the Valley and especially in the elementary schools, " Walaitis said. " These students need the opportunity to experience what a college event is like. " Maile Haworth, assistant marketing director for the department, said that the program gives the elementary schools the opportunity to attend certain ASU events for free. " This past school year, a packet was distributed to all elementary schools in the Mesa and Tempe districts, " Haworth said. It consisted of a master sheet, which had coupons on it, a calendar of specific events chosen by our department and a letter. " We are promoting ASU by giving the elementary students the opportunity to walk through the before an event to see what a college campus looks like, " Walaitis said. " This is also a recruitment process for the kids. Recruitment starts at an early age. " Walaitis said he is satisfied with the success of the program so far and is planning to expand the program throughout the metropolitan Phoenix area. He said, " If an elementary student likes to attend events at ASU now and also likes the surroundings of the college that student most likely will want to attend ASU after he or she graduates from high school. That ' s the goal I am shooting for. " " Kids love Sparky. That ' s the reason why they attend the events, " Haworth said.

McCormick, who now is a country singer, worked with a local physician from Good Samaritan Hospital to provide the information. Students crammed into a lounge in the Memorial Union to listen. They first presented a slide show that discussed all the options to birth control, including Depo-Provera and Norplant, two of the newest methods. The doctor explained that Depo-Provera, an was the most widely used in the world but was not offered to extensively throughout the United States because of breast cancer concerns. Norplant, on the other hand, increased in Doctors surgically place five sticks under the skin on a female ' s arm. The sticks work for approximately five years and was available to ASU students through the Student Health Center. McCormick said, " I think this is important to understand because more than three and a half pregnancies happen by accident. " She added that only 50 percent of those women used contraception, which according to McCormick, was still an alarming statistic. Many students attended the seminar to hear the scoop about her television show stardom. She said, " On the Brady Bunch, decision-making seemed so easy, but we were making a 30-minute episode. " She added she could not openly discuss sex and birth control in her teen years because she was too embarrassed to speak with her mother.

The performance was White ' s 16th at ASU. However, White offered more than an exhibition to students. He also provided insight to aspiring trick artists during his five-day stay. During that time, he held three-hour sessions of pocket billiard clinics, which lasted two days. Winners of the tournaments had the honor of playing against White early Friday morning. To round out his exciting week, White ended his visit with the famous " trick shot exhibition " show. White has been in the billiard supply business for over 57 years. White received five honorary degrees, including a doctorate in poolology from the of Notre Dame and a master ' s degree in billiard science from the University of Alabama. White was the first to introduce " pocket billiard clinics " and is the only player ever to be invited to the White House. Judy Schroeder, program coordinator for the MU Recreation Center, said, " We offer this program, so that students can have the opportunity to learn how to play pool and become entertained as well. " Attending White ' s clinics helped students the rules of the pocket billiard game, according to Schroeder. " Finalists play " around robin, " which means they play every other person in the finals. The winner then has the opportunity to play with Jack when he does his show on Friday, " she also said.

Photo by Craig Macnaughton JACK WHITE STUDENT LIFE The need for parking lot security heightened as an ASU was abducted from Lot 59, one of the most remote lots on campus. The Risk Management and Safety Services department beefed up security after the incident by installing closed-circui t video cameras in Lots 58 and 59. According to Robert Gomez, assistant director for the department, the two lots were the most populated and inexpensive areas on campus. Crime data received by Gomez showed a continual trend in theft of student property, vehicles and vandalism. The decision was also affected by the February abduction of the ASU student and the economic aspects. " There are 13 cameras available, which cover 35 acres, and have the capability of panning and the entire lots, " Gomez said. " A camera can be individually moved by remote control at the discretion of the DPS officer. The use of the panning and photo zooming allows dispatchers to zero in on the targeted areas. " Renee Fitzgerald, a junior journalism major, said, " Security at night does not seem to be as good as during the day. I feel nervous walking from class to class at night. " Terri Asher, a junior journalism major, said, " The cameras were a step in the right direction. But, for the amount of money you pay for a parking space, the distance from the middle of campus, there should be much more being done to ensure the safety of the students and their property. " Gomez said, " If students plan to park and walk through remote areas, especially at night, they should get involved in a " buddy system. " In addition, students may want to have an alarm device such as a whistle in their hand while walking to their car. " ■ Dina Moreno, Spanish Hal Morgan, political sci. R. Alex Morgan, political sci.

CAMPUS SECURITY STUDENT LIFE In the world of computers, technology moved fast and waited for no one. Arizona State University faced the challenge to keep up with current technology and its changes by a state-of-the-art computer facility, also known as the Computing Commons. Barbara Powell, director of the Facilities and Resources department, " The building is unique because of its spacious work areas and comfortable seating. " The facility was characterized by its unique which included a four-story atrium. Work stations were arranged neatly in circular and cross patterns that resembled a tic-tac-toe board. The Commons was the largest computer site on campus and featured more than 100 spacious work stations for disabled students. Comfortable chai rs were added, so students could relax. " The building was planned to enhance and existing facilities across campus rather than supplement them, " Powell said. The Commons provided Macintosh, IBM, UNIX stations, scanners, a CAD table and laser printers. Universities often found it difficult to keep up with existing technology because purchasing new equipment and software and upgrading hardware was often too expensive. After battling funding problems, ASU finally opened the doors to the $15.2 million facility, which stood vacant for more than a year. " It ' s really been worth the wait, " said Sean Garrett, a computer assistant at the Computing Commons. " All of the computers are new, and there are more work stations here than the other sites. " " Some of the classrooms enable the instructor to project information from the monitor onto a wall screen, then the computer is run by a special laser printer, " Garrett said.

Because of her exceptional GPA of 4.0, she was offered an out-of-state Regents ' Scholarship from ASU. In the Fall of 1990, she moved into the Honors College Dorm, McClintock Hall and has lived there ever since. During sher first year at ASU, Wold studied Aerospace Engineering, but decided in her third semester that the profession was not for her. She said " I was afraid I would spend all my life designing something specific like a bolt or a door. I decided I wanted to work with airplanes mostly because when I was young, I always loved going to the airport to pick somebody up. While there, I would sit and watch the airplanes come in, takeoff, and land, so Aeronautical Management Technology (AMT) seemed the logical thing to do. " The AMT program requires students to take business, aviation, and tech- nical courses to graduate with a B.S. degree. In the summer of 1992, she received the Circumnavigators Club Foundation (CCF), which gave her the opportunity to travel around the world in the summer of 1993. In May 1993, CCF awarded her with a Travel Study Grant which gave Wold the opportunity to visit such continents as: North America, Europe, and Asia. To receive a scholarship from CCF, a student must be a junior, a science major, and a honors student. In Dec 1992, Wold was told by the Dean of the Honors College, Ted Humphrey, that she received a scholarship from CCF. She said " The members of the Club travel around the world in a single trip. The foundation gives out the grant to a student who studies a topic and travels around the world studying his or her major. After doing this, the person becomes a member of the club. " She had the opportunity to study international airports and airlines. " I traveled throughout Europe and Asia, " said Wold, " and visited 26 cities and 18 countries in 52 days. She described it as a marathon tour of the world. Wold would like to work for an airpoort and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Cindy Coldiron LUCINDA WOLD STUDENT LIFE tAX ASSISTANCE April 15th, " Tax Day " , was either a good day for those a refund or a bad day for those having to pay. To ease the stress of filing tax returns, members of the Volunteer Income Tax Program (VITA) helped students with their returns. Michelle Margolies, a third-year law major, said that every year, more volunteers come to their aid. " We try to recruit more people every year to meet the demands of the students, " she also said. In 1993, 50 volunteers offered their tax services to interested students. The turnout reached new heights as volunteers helped more than 500 people. " Before we actually do the taxes, we have training sessions for the volunteers, " she said. VITA was a nation-wide program sponsored by the American Bar Association. She added that most colleges and universities around the country offered the program. VITA began in the middle of February and up until the tax deadline of April 15. Clinics for the volunteers began in the end of January. Many of the volunteers did not study law, accounting or business. " I have been a part of the program for a year, " Margolies said. She added that she enjoys tax law, so the program helped her with her field of interest. " It ends up that it is what I am studying, " she added. Margolies also said, " Many people come to law after being a CPA. " Since ASU offered the largest law-school program, VITA was named the best program in the region and also won the best program in the nation in the previous year. The program listed its service as a campus organization because they had a board of officers, Margolies served as vice president.

DAVID HOLDERBACH STUDENT LIFE MAKE A Foreign students often struggled adjusting to university life in the United States. But, David Holderbach, a native of France, had no problems. Holderbach, a senior aerospace engineering major, came to ASU to compete with the men ' s swim team. He said Yan Cardineau, a former French teammate and a former ASU freestyler, encouraged him to pursue his education and athletics in Arizona. A 1990 graduate of Lycee Climatquie et Sportif, Holderbach said university administrators in France emphasized the importance of an education and often disapproved the mix between sports and study, but this did not stop him from pursuing his interests. Holderbach said, " I told my parents that I wanted to swim, play music or practice soccer. " His parents gave him a choice, and Holderbach opted for swimming. He said, " Swimming is very time-consuming, so I didn ' t have time to play soccer. " He added that the best and only solution for him was to swim and study. Holderbach continued to swim and eventually, went to participate in the twice. He also is a nine-time French national champion in the 200-meter in which he won second place for the same event at the Pac-10 Championships during his third year at ASU. Holderbach looked to his senior year for a fourth All-American as well as being a tri-captain with Simon Percy, a senior liberal arts major, and Renato Ramalho, a junior business major. He also qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 100-meter backstroke, 200-meter backstroke and 500-meter freestyle. Although Holderbach constantly was at the swimming pool, he managed to make time for his studies. He said courses at ASU were not too difficult. " It ' s not easy to balance school and swimming, " Holderbach said. He added that the upperclassmen classes were more challenging than the 100- and 200-level classes. " I like to keep busy and plans things ahead, " Holderbach said. He added, " I think it is very important to set priorities and to be organized.

ASU alumni James Lye and Trevor Crane used their wits to design, market and fund Campus Vision, a campus-wide calendar. The 17-month academic calendar featured ASU students and was available in both female and male versions. Lye and Crane met while attending class at the College of Business. Crane said, " We decided that ASU needed a good calendar, but we did not want create the typical fraternity nudie calendar. " The men approached local merchants with the idea. Initially, they hoped for advertiser support but was not able to gather it in time. Therefore, the two raised their own funding, so they could get a professional-looking prototype to show future advertisers. " We were between a rock and a hard place because we wanted to get the product out on time, but we also wanted to recup our investment, " Crane said. He added, " The only way we could do it was to invest from our own pockets. " The two managed to get it published with the help of a fashion photographers and the Robert Black Modeling Agency. Although there was an audition process, Crane said that many of the models were already working in the professional arena, but all models went to ASU and volunteered for the project. " We are really happy with our product. " Crane also said that originally, the calendar was only going to feature women. " To perfectly honest, it was because we are two single men, but the, we realized we would only be hitting one half of the campus, " he added. He also said that they wanted the calendar to be somewhat sexual and sensual, but not to the extent where it would be obscene or distasteful. Crane said, " You are always going to offend someone, but we did our best to get a variety of models. " He added the women ' s version sold slightly better, but he also said that it was not significantly higher. After its publication, the two conducted several response surveys to see their peers ' reactions. Crane said everyone had a different perspective on the top five models. The two hoped to continue their venture if they could get support from advertisers. ■ Continued on page CAMPUS VISION STUDENT LIFE " We now have a top-notch copy to show prospective Crane added. Several models who were featured in the female version also participated in Playboy magazine ' s search for the `Women of the Pac-10. ' Recruiters for their special edition came to ASU in search for representatives. Many were asked to pose in the buff but had the option to be clothed or at least partially clothed. Piper, a senior art major, said that posing for the magazine had no influences from her field of study. " I just saw an ad in the paper, and I always wondered if I could do it, " Piper said. She said she called the recruiter, set an appointment and interviewed. Although she was not able to disclose the amount she received for the shoot, she said that the girls who were fully dressed did not receive as much. " I think they were looking for girls with a lot of personality, " she said. " They wanted someone who can representing them well during autograph sessions. " Piper, who comes from a small town in Idaho, said at first, her mother was concerned on how the people in her town would react. After seeing the issue, she said her mom was excited. " I really don ' t care what other people think about it, " Piper added.

Kris Mayes, a senior political science major, had the opportunity to work in her field of interest before graduation. For Mayes, the desire to help those around her had always been a priority in life. She said, " When I grew up, I dreamed of representing the people (in Prescott) I grew up around. " The best way to represent those people is through journalism, Mayes added. " We ' re living in a media-saturated world. There are very few professions in the world with journalism ' s ability to change the world, " she also said. Recipient of countless academic and leadership honors, Mayes made an early jump into the industry. Her experience in journalism started with her work at the State Press, ASU ' s independent morning daily. " I really believe that the State Press is one of the most important organizations on campus, and one through which students can have the most impact, " Mayes said. " I ' m very grateful for the opportunity I had to lead and get to know the people at the State Press. " Although her experiences as a reporter and ultimately as the editor of the State Press influenced Mayes, she also looked to publish her work in USA Today, the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. A turning point in her career came when she interned with the daily Johannesburg Star in strife-torn South Africa. Mayes said, " My interest in journalism over the years had been a little unfocused. I got involved at ASU because I thought it was the best way to get things done here. Now, after South Africa, it ' s turned into something more the scope has broadened. " She added that working daily in an atmosphere of conflict and change is a powerful experience. It served as a confirmation that one person can make a difference. " In South Africa, the media has a very unique place in society. The media has always been important, integral in the struggle against apartheid, " she said, " I was able to see how a 20-inch story could actually save people ' s lives. " Despite receiving several scholarships which will easily fund graduate study, Mayes planned to seek more experience in journalism before obtaining a degree that will further her desire to serve. ■ James Frusetta KRIS MAYES STUDENT LIFE Practicing his lines, Mike Gulatto, a senior major, wants to be a play- by-play sports reporter. Gulatto joined the Southwinds course for added experience. Photo by William Lynam 136 SOUTHWINDS STUDENT LIFE To further the education of all journalism students, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Telecommunications provided media outlets of all types for both print and broadcast arenas. Students with an emphasis in broadcasting were able to volunteer at KASR, the campus radio station, and Southwinds, a student- produced television broadcast. Southwinds was the product of students in the TCM 480: TV News Practicum course. Students received credit hours for their efforts in the class. Mike Gulatto, a senior broadcasting major, said that students had three opportunities to gain credit and earn experience in the class. Gulatto served as the sports reporter. He said that this gave him practical experience in his field. " For me, this was a kind of back-up because I am interested in play-by-play sports broadcasting, " he said. He added that he was responsible to go in the field and find stories. The course did not serve as an internship. Although Gulatto was part of an internship program before taking the course, he said it was a good investment. " An internship is different in the real- world aspect, but this classes is also helpful to prepare for a job after college, " he added. Students produced the beats, or story ideas, interviewed their sources and then, took their information to the editing lab where they coordinated the broadcast. " We actually taped the segment in the studio on Fridays, " Gulatto said. " A week later, it would be aired. " Because of the delay in time, they were not able to shoot " on location. " Students used the studios from KAET— Channel 8. The broadcast aired on the public access channels, Channel 22 or Channel 11 in Phoenix, with the help of Dimension Cable and other cable outlets. On the other hand, KASR played alternative music to students who listened to 680 AM or Channel 2, the university ' s cable station that students could access in the residence halls. Cyndi Janetka, a freshman broadcasting major, said that she was a disc jockey for her high school radio station in Chicago, Ill. E Continued on page 138 SOUTHWINDS STUDENT LIFE ) experience. She said that KASR was different from local because they catered to students. Janetka said, " You will hear a lot of songs that The Edge (106.3 KEDJ) does not play, but people still want to hear. " Many aspiring musicians also get the opportunity to air their music on the station, which can often be difficult with stations that serve the whole valley. KASR often promoted their station by broadcasting on Cady Mall and by having give-aways which were devised by their promotions department. " We sponsored events where students could get involved, " she said. She added that students could also request any song they wanted at any time of the day. Janetka also said that each DJ worked specific shifts where they needed to follow their own format, noting that she worked from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday mornings. KASR often looked to local celebrities to promote the station. They even sponsored a Celebrity Week where administrators, such as ASU President Lattie Coor, and student leaders aired their own show. Stauffer Hall housed the faciltiies for both Southwinds and KASR, Kim Kaan This prompted her to be one of 40 DJs at ASU. " I just do it for the experience, " Janetka said.

But to Luke Tigaris, his parents did not pressure him. Tigaris, a third- generation ASU student, said although both his parents and grandparents both went ASU, he was not obligated to come. The year proved to be eventful for him. Tigaris, a sixth-year senior economics and philosophy major, was also president of the Memorial Union Activities Board (MUAB) and Homecoming King. He decided to become a double major because he had an interest in both subjects. " Philosophy is just fascinating to me, " Tigaris said. He added he has always been a busy person and would like to participate in more community service after he graduates. " I would like to work at a child-crisis center — some place that benefits kids, " he also said. Although his hectic schedule only allowed him to do one thing at a time, Tigaris said he spends quality time for each activity. " I don ' t do it to fill my resume, " he said. Tigaris also said that he joined MUAB because he liked what it offered students. MUAB was comprised of eight which presents different such as The Farce Side and the Gallery, for students. MUAB also sponsored major events, such as concerts on Palo Verde Beach and the Battle of the Bands. He said he also enjoyed MUAB for its social aspects. " I have a lot of fun with my friends that I met through MUAB. " His friends encouraged Tigaris to apply for the 1993 Homecoming King. " I really did not consider it until I was asked to apply. " Tigaris had to go through an application and interview process to finally become the reigning royalty. He would represent the university for the next year. " Apparently, the judges felt I was best qualified. " In addition to his extra-curricular activities, he was also in the process of writing computer software. He had high expectations for himself in college. " I want to be a millionaire by the time I graduate, " he said. Kim Kaan LUKE TIGARIS STUDENT LIFE Many found them amusing. Others found them annoying, but no matter how much students tried to avoid them, they were found. Standing on the north end of the Cady Mall fountain, campus preachers condemned students as they walked to class. They usually held a Bible in one hand, and in the other, a sign, reading, " Jesus is Lord — Sinners Repent. " They shouted at the top of their lungs at all the hopeless hell-bound sinners that carelessly ingnored their impassioned pleas for repentance. The description was an of the average ASU campus preacher. Annoying hapless ASU students for as long as anyone can remember , these venom-voiced visitors were as much a part of ASU as Cady Mall itself. Campus preachers normally begin their routines on Cady Mall or West Lawn. They were usually white males. 99 percent of them were Christian zealots. Even the most fanatical worshippers of other appeared to be too dignified to degrade or their god in this manner. Students felt campus preachers had a nasty habit of constantly badgering people as they walked to class. Their message, " you are going to Hell, " often made them very unpopular. Often, they chose to centralize their anger on a specific topic, such as condoms, sex, alcohol, rock music and other popular parts of the ASU experience. When encountered by a campus preachers, did not show fear. The preachers would say it was a sign of vulnerability. Most were relatively harmless unless provoked. The best advice was to politely accept their literature, and they would walk away. Students accept the campus preachers because they have been on campus longer than the cockroaches.

He continued to observe his culture and their traditions. Photo by Brian Fitzgerald Jason Eden Amy Edmonds Rachel Eisenberg Joshua Elsesser Lacy Eshilian Criselda Espinoza Elaine Esqueda Natalie Evans Heather Fallon Jay Feitlinger Samantha Feldman Jon Feltman PIERCE HARRISON STUDENT LIFE In its goal to attract more on-campus residents, ASU implemented a campus community program that would not only provide a new level of learning, but also it would be exciting to participating students. Pierce Harrison, a junior biology major, lived in the American Indian Issues and Culture dorm. Harrison served as the hall ' s first residence assistant. A native of Washington state, he said that the dorm centers around student research and planning. " I think it is a good place for all the Indian students to hang out, " Harrison said. He comes from the Yakama-Navajo tribe, located in the Southwest region of the United States. Harrison said that he first visited ASU when he visited a high school friend. Then, he made the decision to continue his higher education on the Tempe campus. Although he made the transition to ASU, Harrison said that he always observes his culture and their traditions. Because there was a substancial amout of Native American students at ASU, several campus organizations and events were implemented to highlight their culture. Harrison said, " I still take part in a lot of events, such as singing and dancing. " He said the debate between labels, whether to use American Indian or Native America, was a personal choice. " Personally, I use Native American, " he said. He also participates in lodge meetings, which according to Harrison, are private. Many of his activities are spiritual and unique to his culture, which is why he lives at the special campus community dorm. " There are a wide range of people in my dorm, but we all have at least one thing in common, " Harrison said. He added that the dorm serves as an experience and educational tool to learn the Indian culture. " I think there is a misconception that all Indians are the same, " Harrison said. He added that people take this for granted, but he wanted to also emphasize that every tribe is different. Although his parents do not expect Harrison to continue his tradition, he said that they were instrumental in exposing him to the culture. " When I go home, I already know about the culture, " he. said. " I will always have it with me, and I am going to pass it to my children.

The latest addition to the sometimes bewildering array of ASU clothing, school supplies and beer mugs was Brach ' s " Champs " candies — peanut and chocolate candies similar to M Ms, coated in maroon and gold candy shells and packaged under the Sparky logo. Although Brach ' s came up with the concept and design for the candy, the product was approved and tested at ASU. The university had its own trademark licensing and product testing division, headed by Fernando Morales, coordinator for trademark licensing. Brach ' s went through a rigorous process to obtain permission. " We require a 3 million minimum liability, and approval by the FDA for food products, " Morales said. " Students were consulted to evaluate the taste and texture of the candy. " There were several restrictions on products ASU will agree to market, and Morales keeps a large ' hall of shame ' for products which didn ' t quite make it — ranging from ASU lawn darts (unsafe) to the Sparky bong (deemed inappropriate). The three most important attributes in seeking approval for a product are appropriateness, safety and quality. " (A product) has to be keeping with the ASU image, and can ' t call that image into question, " Morales said. " ASU ' s name has to be bigger than the company ' s name on the product ' s labeling. " It can ' t be a hazard — we ' ve had products like darts or knives that we wouldn ' t accept. It also has to be a good quality product ... we ' ve had hats submitted for approval which would melt in strong sunlight. " Controversy arose during the school year regarding the fact that profits from the candy helped to support the University Club, a facility restricted to faculty and alumni. Jim Sliwicki, associate director for fiscal planning and analysis, said that profits from products bearing the Sparky image are placed in ASU President Lattie Coor ' s special project account, a fund which supports scholarships, graduate research, and employee recognition programs. On the horizon, Morales said that products under consideration include a Sparky the Sun Devil screen-saver for computers and a Grateful Dead ' Dancing Bear ' ASU T-shirt. ■ James Frusetta TRADEMARK LICENSING STUDENT LIFE 147 Working in the Sun Devil Team Shop, Doug Hammond, a senior industrial engineering major, waits for the next customer.

However, local pageants also looked for the best representative for their cause, including the Native American population on campus. Lisa Fourd, a junior real estate major, took the top honor as Miss Indian ASU. Fourd competed for the title in a pageant held at the Memorial Union. Sponsored by the Native American Students Association, five women vied for the position. Fourd said that she first had to qualify for competitions. Judges looked for women who are from a federally recognized tribe and are at least one-fourth Native American. Fourd was from Pine Ridge, a known reservation in South Dakota. " I decided to come to ASU because there are many different tribes, " Fourd said. " It is very diversified down here and not a lot of people know that. " She also said that she is actively involved with organizations and events that highlight her culture. " I was born into the culture, so by choice, I will do anything to it. " Her parents raised her in a highly environment. She still the traditional beliefs and Her role as Miss Indian ASU was very similar to the role of Miss America. " I travel to different states and appear at several public functions throughout the year, " Fourd said. " I visit many reservations and I speak to campus classes about Native Americans and their culture. " She said that she was diappointed that people still have large misconceptions about her cultures and traditions. " I remember when someone asked me if I lived in a tepee, " she said, adding that many think Native Americans still live in the 18th Century. " Many wonder if we have electricity. " Fourd said she played along with the naïve questions. She came to ASU because the university had a known reputation for having a large Native American population. " My sister went to a college where she was the only Native American. " Fourd reigned as Miss Indian ASU during the 1992-93 school year, a position that extended to the Spring of 1994. " I think I am representative of Native American students, " Fourd added. fl Kim Kaan LISA FOURD STUDENT LIFE Walter Cronkite, heralded newsman and longtime voice of middle America, spoke to a standing-room-only crowd in the Memorial Union, giving opinions on topics ranging from censorship in the media to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Approximately 100 students from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and attended the question-and-answer session that lasted more than one hour. Cronkite opened with a broad statement on the importance of journalism in a democratic society by saying, " My heart is in journalism. " The 76-year-old journalist requested that yell out questions, because as he said, " I am deaf as a post, and I am not ashamed to admit it. " He was often quick with a joke and seemed at ease discussing the emotional day " shots rang out in Dallas " and his significant and " risky " editorial stand on the losing cause of the Vietnam War. He also said the news media is going through extensive changes and is headed for a hybrid future. Cronkite labeled the day JFK was shot as " one of the dark days in the nation ' s history. " He went on to explain the challenges of getting the correct story out to the American public. " We were on the air right away when it was still an assassination attempt, " Cronkite recalled vividly. " We didn ' t know that the president was going to die. " " From there, it was a very long day, " he said. Cronkite described news as throwing a stone in a puddle — the closer a community is to the outgoing waves, the more important the news is to them. He also said that the media ' s trend toward feature and glossy news is " reprehensible and totally irresponsible. " He added, " There is no reason for it except for ratings.

Christine Milian, however, decided to learn the art of belly dancing for her former job. Milian used to dance at the Moroccan, a restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale which served middle-Eastern food. She said that the restaurant was unique because of the atmosphere. " Customers even sat on cushions, " Milian said. Although the restaurant closed its doors, Milian continued with her dancing. Milian learned belly dancing from a teacher, who now lives in Cairo, Egypt. She said that she did not have any former training. Although her family comes from the Philippines, she did not have any family ties which motivated her to continue with her dancing. " I have been belly dancing off and on for three years, but I did not get seriously into it until last fall, " she added. Milian studied ballet and jazz when she was younger. " I just began my interest in ethnic dances, " she said. Belly dancing is by rapid movements of the belly and usually was a solo " I just study the traditional belly dancing that I believe comes from the Mediterranean region, " Milian also said. Although Milian does not fit the image of the traditional belly dancer, she said that the standard of beauty was different when belly dancing was first implemented. " I think the original dancers met the standard of beauty. It was common to see voluptuous women dancing, " she added. Milian said that dancing was not one of her academic interests. " It is more like a hobby, " she said. " It is very hard to make a living based en tirely on dancing. " Milian was also an officer of the Memorial Union Activities Board (MUAB). She served as the Gallery chairwoman. " I am responsible for organizing events and displays in the Memorial Union Art Gallery, " Milian said. She also said that she would not mind working on a master ' s degree in art history. ■ Kim Kaan CHRISTINE MILLAN STUDENT LIFE 155 In the race for space, Phillip Christensen, professor of devised an instrument, a thermal emission spectrometer, that would aid the Mars Observer through its mission in space.

For NASA and other contributors, the unknown whereabouts of the Mars Observer cost a lot of time, energy and money. Looking for an explanation, NASA began an In the meantime, officials were looking to launch another spacecraft to help in the search. " There is still question as to the type of spacecraft on which the new instrument will be flown, " Schmidt said. " We fully expect that a spectrometer of this type will be used on whatever the next Mars mission turns out to be. " Schmidt said, " An investigation was launched by NASA into the cause of the loss of communication with Mars Observer. The panel found that the most likely explanation was a malfunction in the spacecraft ' s propulsion system. " The spectrometer took 10 years to develop in which the instrument was to map the surface from orbit for one martian year or 687 Earth days. These would have examined the dust in the atmosphere and provide crucial information about surface temperatures and particle sizes. Scientists planned for the next experiment to begin in November 1996 with an expected arrival in October of 1997.

To Keisha McFadgion, the stars may become a reality. McFadgion, a graduate from Christ the King High School in New York, came to ASU as a freshman looking for a quality education. However, she also was shooting for star status as a point guard for the ASU ' s women basketball team. " I think ASU is a good school, and I wanted to play basketball because I like the women ' s team, " McFadgion said. She said it was no sweat to juggle sports and school because she was accustomed to the daily routine in high school. " I was expecting it to be difficult, " McFadgion said. She added that in high school, she woke up early to go to school and practice and she did not leave for home until late in the evening. She began playing basketball at 7 years of age where she would constantly try to play with her older brother. Eventually, McFadgion played in elementary school, and by the time she was in eighth grade, she began playing on the varsity team at a prestigious New York high school. During her junior year, she was transferred to Christ the King as a special edition to the women ' s team. The next year, her senior team captured the 1993 state and national championships. She came to ASU because she enjoyed the competition and the environment. " I like the competition in Pac-10 conferences, " McFadgion said. She said she does not find that the ASU program challenged her because she was a freshman. McFadgion also excelled in her studies. As a pre-med major, she was out to prove she could be both an athlete and a scholar by maintaining a 4.00 grade point average. At her high school, she was a member of the National Honor Society for two years for her high grade point average. McFadgion planned on pursuing a career as a mortician, but she said her future plans depended on the outcome of her basketball career. " I am going to try to play overseas, but if that does not work out, I will find a job in my field of study, " she added. Until then, she was to look for the shining star. Kim Kaan KEISHA MCFADGION STUDENT LIFE BENEFITS The struggle for a good a good steal or a good field goal always motivated players to work their hardest for a win. In college, basketball players played for scholarships, in the NBA, players worked for high salaries and competition and some players at the ASU Recreation Center played for therapy and fun. The Wellstart program, previously known as the Adaptive Recreation Program, which was opened to faculty and students, catered to the sporting needs of handicapped players. John Figy, coordinator of the athletic program, said, " We have tennis, badminton, table tennis, swimming and pool tournaments. It ' s a great and we also offer classes at the 100, 200 and 300 levels as well as recreational outings to the mall. " The recreation center was equipped to accommodate handicapped athletes with weight-lifting machines that strengthened the upper body. " I provide corrective exercises, special massager deep water exercises, and there are specially fr machines designed, " Figy said. According to Figy, many athletes took advantage c the program. Ron Delbridge was one of the involve students. " I find the program very beneficial, and has strengthened my stamina ability. here I give a superior rating, " Delbridge said. Figy said, " One of the great things that we ' ve able to keep is that there are no fees for this program and it is available to students and faculty. " " The staff here is very helpful. I met John throug my friend Zachery. He introduced us, and I wa convinced I could use this for the rest of my life, s now I get to met people and have fun, " Delbridge also said.

He was not a player or a referee. He was a member of the Sun Devil Marching Band. Thornton, a sophomore undeclared major, played the trumpet as the only wheelchair- bound member of the band. Thornton said this has not affected him. He said, " It has been pretty easy for the most part. " He said his first intention was not to come to ASU. " I really was not familiar with the program or ASU, " Thornton said. He added that it was not until he actually heard them play when he decided he wanted to pursue his interest at the collegiate level. Thornton said, " I did not know how good they were until I heard them play. " He added that he made decision soon after the marching band won the 1991 Sudler Trophy. The trophy made ASU the first Pac-10 band to receive the award. They were also the tenth university to earn the prestigious trophy. Thornton, part of the 270-member band, said he was hooked after hearing about the award. " I then thought it would be pretty neat to come to ASU, " he added. When he first came to perform, Thornton said he was pretty nervous because the band adviser had never worked with a student in a wheelchair. According to Thornton, it was something to get used to, but it was not very difficult to change. " I do not think he was concerned, " Thornton said. " It was just slightly different. " Thornton, 21, said he is a big football fan. He said that he enjoyed college football more than the in the National Football League. " I think college football is more competitive, " Thorton said. He added, " I also think that professional football is too political.

Meera Jagannath said her parents were an inspiration to her interests. Jagannath, a freshman pre-med major, performs traditional Indian dances. Her 12-year interest in the dances stemmed from her parents ' culture. Her mother and father came to the United States from Banglore, India where they raised Jagannath, who was born in Phoenix. According to the 17-year-old dancer, bharata natyam is a very religious dance in her parents ' native country. " It centers on the ethics of the Hindu religion, " Jagannath said. She characterized the traditional dance as a series of hand movements and facial expressions. Jagannath joined a local group of dancers who practice regularly. She said her group was comprised of approximately 75 students. The majority of dances had connection with the Indian culture, but Jagannath said there were also a few students from a pre-dominately American This year, she performed in the Fiesta Bowl parade with her group. They also practice with the Arizona Opera. Jagannath said that she dances to continue the Indian tradition. She said she was proud of her culture. " I stay interested because I want to hold on to the traditions, " she said. " I am trying to not forget my background. " In addition to dancing, Jagannath said she was trying to learn how to play the traditional Indian instruments. " I hope to also learn the veena, " she said. The veena was a stringed instrument from Southern India.

He was highly recognized by several college coaches.

Oregon Coach Rich Brook told Plummer that he wasn ' t looking forward to seeing him for the next three years after the Boise, Idaho product passed for 237 yards to mount an unsuccessful second-half comeback in his first collegiate start. Stanford Coach Bill Walsh, who won three Super Bowls with future Hall-of-Famer Joe Montana as his quarterback, called Plummer a " gem " after viewing videotape prior to facing the Sun Devils. " We certainly took a look at him when he came out of high school, " Walsh said. " We knew he had some skills. He ' ll do good things in this league. " UCLA Coach Terry Donahue deemed him a " really young, gifted quarterback " as he headed into the game against the Bruins. " I think the freshman quarterback is an exceptional deep ball thrower, " Donahue added. " He appears to be much further advanced than most freshmen who come into systems and try to play. " But ASU Coach Bruce Snyder, despite the recognition his quarterback received from Pac-10 coaches, said Plummer ' s performance had just been average since replacing Grady Benton at halftime against Washington State. However, that was until Snyder had a chance to evaluate the freshman ' s performance after a 9-3 win UCLA. He credited Plummer as being part of the equation that helped the Sun Devils with their four-game winning streak, which also put the Sun Devils into contention for a bowl game. In a season when he was looking to be a redshirt, Plummer is living a fantasy world as the Sun Devils starting quarterback. Overall, Plummer turned around a stagnant Sun Devil offense that averaged only 21 points in their first five games. In the last five games with Plummer at the helm, ASU averaged 31 points per game. " I try to be a leader out there as much as I can, " Plummer said. " It ' s kind of difficult being young and having them accept you, but they ' re doing a real good job. I just go out and play my hardest and I think they respect me for that. " ■ Shaun Rachau JAKE PLUMMER STUDENT LIFE Instead of trucking by foot to campus from Lot 59, students opted for the trams. The trams closely resembled the transportation at Disneyland. The trams brought students to the center of campus from the cheapest, yet most populated, lot. But as the budget dwindled and the expenses skyrocketed, university transportation officials planned to eliminate the popular trams. In conjunction with the city of Tempe, the established a master plan that suggested city buses provide a shuttle service around the Sun Devil parameters. Linda Riegel, assistant director of parking and transit for the ASU Department of Public Safety, said that the trams were aging and the new shuttle service would prevent an increase in decal prices and extra university costs. The price for Lot 59, the abundant lot behind Sun Devil Stadium, averaged $45 in cost. For covered parking structures closer to campus, students paid an average of $105. Because the university generated many business success for Tempe, the city decided to pay for the buses. The new buses would also have a few more perks that the trams could not offer, such as handicapped access, air conditioning and protection from rain. The idea, however, was not new. A shuttle began transporting students from the ASU West campus to the Main campus. Students who decided to ride the shuttle paid $1 each way for the trip. The costs seemed to be worthwhile because it was cheaper than gas for the approximately 30-mile trip. The new plan was to begin in the summer.

" Hsieh recently received his bachelor of arts degree and returned to school as a graduate, piano major. He came to ASU three years ago after graduating from the National Institute of the Arts in Taiwan. There, he met a visiting professor from ASU who encouraged him to come to the United States. " He heard me play and he said I would have a good chance of receiving a Regents ' Scholarhip, " Hsieh said. He also said that he previously heard that Arizona State had a very strong musical program since the addition of the Nelson Fine Arts Center. Hsieh said that he loves the facilities at ASU, so he decided to go to graduate school. " I am hoping to teach and perform in competition while I go to school, " Hsieh said. He added that he hopes piano will become his full- time career. He currently gives private lessons to those wanting to learn the piano, starting one of his goals. In order to graduate, musicians regularly held recitals at the music department in which Hsieh gives a public performance.

After a grueling week of classes, tests, and homework assignments, students visit such popular places as Coffee Plantation, Fat Tuesdays, Balboa Cafe, Club 411, Long Wong ' s and Stan ' s Deli to unwind and have fun with friends. Students also enjoyed shopping for gifts and cards at Duck Soup, going to one of ten movies at the newly-built Harkins Centerpoint Cinema, decorating their rooms with the modern art at Z Gallerie, and they often spent time browsing through the hundreds of used books at the Changing Hands Bookstore. The Coffee Plantation smelled great to passers-by. The outdoor cafe provided a convenient and relaxing atmosphere, which was the perfect setting to read a book, finish homework or simply enjoy the coffee and desserts. Jazz bands performed outside on weekend nights, and sometimes on Sundays, students will be entertained inside by live piano music.

Peelen also said, " We moved to Mill Avenue in March of 1989 because of the broad demographic nature it offers, " noting that the business, arts, retail, and unversity flavor adds to the success of the exotic coffee house. Drinking a Blue Hawaii Daiquiri with friends on the patio or inside the sports bar also whisked ASU students away from their school life.

" The concept is made for a younger, energetic crowd who are open to new ideas, especially ideas dealing with alcohol. " Balboa Cafe, another favorite, provided televisions that featured major sporting events. Patrons enjoyed drinking at the bar. They also provided a place to catch a breeze on the patio or eat dinner, which varied from specialty sandwiches, appetizers, gourmet pizza, hand-formed burgers, soups and salads, desserts, and beverages. Peter Morgan, general manager for Balboa Cafe, said, " About seventy-five percent of ASU students visit our establishment every night between 11p.m. and 1 a.m. " Morgan added, " We provide live music and student discounts. The summer months are not as active as the Fall and Spring months. " For all gift-giving needs, Duck Soup stocked of cards and gift ideas.

" She also said, " Duck Soup is convenient for ASU students to browse before or after a movie at Harkins Theater, or before or after visiting Coffee Plantation. We receive most of our traffic in the afternoons and evenings. " She added that she liked the old-fashioned walking town atmosphere that Mill Avenue brings to the Tempe and ASU area.

The organization formed to ease the international transition between the country and Sun Devil country. ANSA provided information on the current events in Norway that may interest students who miss home. The association also organized social events, such as ski trips, soccer and croquet tournaments, and holiday parties, for its members and any other Norwegian students who wanted to participate. Approximately 44 students participated in these events; the majority were members of the organization. Elisabeth Wike, a junior business administration major, recruited new members and served as the contact person. As a recruitment strategy, Wike delivered fliers to the International Student Office on the second floor of the Student Services building. From there, the fliers were sent out to prospective Norwegian ASU students. The International Student Office provided the organization with names and addresses of incoming Norwegian Wike sent them information about the club and hoped for a good turn-out at the beginning of each fall semester. ANSA did not hold regular meetings. Instead, they met once or twice a semester and discussed upcoming social events and points of interest involving the news in Norway. Wike said, " ANSA is a part of home. We are like a big family. " She added, " We spend Christmas, Thanksgiving (complete with the rituals of Norway) and parts of our summer vacation together.

Moralde, a member of the College of Public Programs college council, said that the councils could be easily compared to the United States government. Each council served as a state, of the council acted as governors and clubs and organizations under each were representative of cities. " I think this is a good way of looking at the college council system, " Moralde said. He also said each council had its own purpose. " Members of the council serve the as a whole by helping with academic services and needs, " Moralde said. " We also serve to unite administration with students. " Each college council operated with the rules that members deemed necessary. Members laid out some guidelines similar to a constitution. Moralde said, " We have an important part of the ASU community. " He added that the council worked closely with ASASU and the Alumni Association. The council also coordinated picnics and SHADOW days. According to Moralde, students from the council work at the college ' s ceremony as ushers and speakers. Every May, ASASU voted on an college chapter that would claim the honors for a year. The College of Public Program captured the latest award. Moralde said, " I think we won this award because the council has become an active organization. " The council was on the verge of being non-existent, but with the help of active members, the council exceeded many of their goals. He said, " We had very high attendance and participation in ASU events, such as the food drives, so I think that was also a reason for the award.

On Wednesdays, research protesters argued on the West Lawn about the use of laboratory animals throughout each school year. Missy Lee, a senior elementary major, said, " It ' s unfortunate that so many students on this campus are unaware of the cruel animal research that takes place at this university. " Lee involved herself with animal rights because she was concerned about the research. Other endeavors on campus included Overpopulation Week, which urged students to spay and or neuter their pets. Members spent several hours a week to distribute literature about their and to answer students ' questions about animal rights. C.A.A.R.E. believed that rationality and self-composure were essential in the information. The group did not condone criminal activity of any nature. Members of C.A.A.R.E. joined together to meet an objective. Rick Bunn, a freshman German major said, " I ' m sick of the inhumane treatment of animals.

Therefore, Solis Diaboli Classics Club has taken upon itself the duty of " keeping classics alive Jade Corn, president of said she was disappointed that ASU did not offer a classics curriculum. Story by Nachammai Raman Although 10 professors claimed they were well-acquainted with classical studies of the Greek and Latin literary traditions, the university could not provide a full curriculum for interested students. " That ' s why we pay honorariums to people from U of A to come and lecture here, " said Corn. The club started an exchange program between ASU and U of A about three years ago for professors to give lectures and " enrich the classical curriculum. " According to Corn, There were plenty of " ancient courses " at ASU, but these were not consolidated into a department and a specific field of study. The club did not cater to a very large membership, but the interest was there. I The few dedicated members were people who were keenly interested in all aspects of the classics. Corn said that the organization helped the members gain a greater knowledge and to understand the diversity of the classics. The organization promoted learning of Latin and Greek, which served as the " bases for western civilization. " Members also staffed events at the Junior Classical League (JCL) contests. They performed skits and other events where students exhibited their knowledge about ancient civilization. The club organized at least three lectures every semester on different topics, ranging from literature to marriages. Corn said that Solis Diaboli is more like a hobby. To many, he said it might be " small little stuff. " But, to him, the classics inspired his interests and was serious in nature.

Littell said, " It was a very fun and busy year this year, because we ' re putting on a safecon. " He added that it took a vast amount of time to schedule everything. " " We have to organize eveything, which includes working with the city and the airports, " Littell said. He said, " We also have to make sure that everything is ok with the flight school. " The aviation program, according to Littell, was very popular among members. Through safecon, members discplined themselves and honed their skills. Littell said that the majority of his had the long-term career goal to become an aviator. The 15-members organization facilitated the aviation students ' needs.

In a 1969 conference at the University of California. at Santa l arbara, organizers of MeCHa helped Chicano students to become a major lobby during the civil rights movement. Story by Amy Tillis The group motivated students to cultural activities through week-long events. Every year, MeCHa sponsored " La Semana Cultural, " a celebration of Chicano heritage. Armando Torres, a senior biology major and president of MeCHa said, " La Semana Cultural makes the campus community, as well as the outside communities, aware of our culture. " For students actively involved in MeCHa, the year proved to be very demanding and rewarding. The ASU chapter was chosen to host the annual National M.E.CH.A. Conference from April 15-17, 1994. Approximately 1,500 students from all over the United States came to ASU to attend workshops and to listen to affluent Chicano speakers. ASU last hosted the national conference in 1981. Ed Delci, academic adviser in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and MeCha, said he was very proud of his students. He said, " Because we are hosting the national conference, both the motivation and the drive of the students to display their heritage is very high. " The national conference also commorated the 25th anniversary of the national organization. The conference was held in memory for Mexican leader Cesar Chavez.

The group chose to differentiate themselves from other choral groups by singing a cappella (without instruments). A Story by Kim Kaan Denise Gooding, a senior accounting major, said she loves singing, which convinced her to join. She just heard an informal recording, and she was hooked. " We are a unique group because we do not get credit for our performances, " she said. " We just do it because we love it. " Approximately 13 women perform with group each semester, but according to Gooding, the number fluctuates. Although Pitchforks is a campus organization, audition are necessary to determine the overall sound of the group. Gooding said that although the excluded men from their group, there were several organization that were similar for them. She also said that ASASU supported their performances and helped them with an exchange program where they in conjunction with a men ' s group in Boulder, Colo. The women practiced every Sunday and Tuesday for hours, but the practice often worked in their behalf. The Pitchforks performed at local bars and arenas. Gooding said the group was looking forward to singing at the America West Arena. Although they mostly volunteered to perform, they also used their signing to gain some profit. They delivered singing telegrams for a small price on Valentine ' s Day. " I also think our music sets us apart from other singing groups, " Gooding said. She added, " We sing everything from modern to gospel, " noting that they have performed to songs by R.E.M. and James Taylor.

Even though the story lines may have seemed very realistic, members knew it was just game. Erica Gonzales and Kim Kaan Corbet Rinehart, president of the Role-Playing Club and a sophomore engineering and applied science major, said that a game is an easy fantasy to fulfill. " A role-playing game is a game in which a player takes on a character ' s identity and plays in an imaginary setting, working with others to accomplish a mutual goal, " Rinehart said. Although many people believed it was just a pastime, members played the games to expand helpful skills. Role players learned communication skills, leadership, and an ability to work in a group. Erica Gonzales, a freshman pre-med major, said that her friend too her to one meeting and she was hooked. " You are allowed to choose any but it has to meet a certain guideline, " Gonzales said. She said she liked to play mysterious people. She also said, " You are given a part in which you have the challenge to finish the situation. " Because the club met only two days a week, the story line lasted one week or several depending on the situation. Gonzales also said that she enjoyed being characters who pratice magic. " You really do not have to know how to be a magician. You just pretend, " she added. The role-playing games was like the game, Dungeons and Dragons, according to Gonzales. " I like that you can change your entire appearance during these games. It is like an escape from the real world, " Gonzales added. Rinehart said that characters depend on real-life or fictional places to guide them through their situation. He said he was not concerned about participation and a lack of story lines. " Anyone who needs a place to game can come to me. Consider this club the home for wayward gamers, " Rinehart added. ■ Front: Tuyet Nguyen, Jon Lujan, Cindy Schorzman, Laura Boyd, Aimee Ptacek, Ricky Rojo, Elisha Fiore, Tiffany Hagan, Cindy Chong.

Scott Holland, a senior international business and Spanish major, felt there was a need to support the reformation f marijuana laws. Story by Carlyn Greco Holland, founder of Students for N.O.R.M.L. (National for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), said the founding of the organizat ion began when some concerned lawyers in Washington D.C. filed suit against the federal government. These lawyers claimed the use of should be allowed for medical relief for chemotherapy patients. After Hugh Hefner heard of the issue, the lawyers allegedly claimed he donated $1 million dollars to fund their cause. GETTING The college chapter held weekly for its 100 members. Holland said he initiated the chapter when he saw too many people for possessing any amount of marijuana in their homes. He said that Arizona has a zero policy against possession of hemp. " There aren ' t any checks and balances in this system, " said Holland. Students mainly wanted to reform the laws about marijuana and to lobby for its medical use as well as educate the campus community. N.O.R.M.L. also patrolled concerts and warned people with bullhorns to avoid the purchase of any illicit drugs because police tried to get people to buy and use drugs. Holland believed the concert prevented unnecessary crimes. Holland and N.O.R.M.L. also worked to put an " Aim Hi " initiative on the voters ' ballot in 1994. The initiative would legislate the legal use of marijuana on the ballot. Each state would decide the legal age for purchase and the use of hemp products. Bill Green, president of Arizona for N.O.R.M.L. used an analogy to explain his opinion. He said, " Arizona for N.O.R.M.L. tries to do for the world something that is similar to mending an injured animal. With any animal, when you go to clean the wound, it tends to bite you.

To others, it was not an option, so mem-bers of the Visually Impaired Students organization worked with blind or visually impaired students to help with campus programs and facilities. ■ Story by Renee Caruss Darrell Shandrow, president of Visually Impaired Students and a sophomore business major, said, " We look for solutions to common problems for the visually and the blind. " Shandrow, who is blind, added, " We are also a support group. We look to improve accommodations. For example, we are trying to make the Common ' s computer equipment accessible for us. " He also said that members warn and educate the public to avoid petting the seeing-guides dogs because it was for both the blind person and the pet. According to Shandrow, stereotypes about blind students and the visually impaired, like many, were not true. Shandrow said, " We do not need to get around, and we do not worry about mobility skills because we have decent mobility skills already. " He added that he had other concerns, such as the access to the equipment inside the Computer Commons. " We need access to the computer speech programs at the Commons, and they still have not properly installed this equipment, " Shandrow said. He added, " In my opinion, they shouldn ' t have even opened that building until the equipment was properly installed and everything was ready. " Shandrow also had concerns about the safety of construction around the campus. He said, " Construction workers are to put their barrier ropes low enough, so that we can touch it with our cane. " He also said, " Sometimes, this does not happen, and it is just frustrating. " Despite his concerns, Shandrow said, " We are not trying to be rivals. " " We just want things to be accessible to us, and we are willing to work with people. " ASU was one of the best campuses for the visually impaired, according to Shandrow. " All we ask for is respect, " he added.

OA, also known as the Skydiving Club, offered action-packed thrills a few daring students. Wh n the club initiated, 150 students showed an interest in taking the plunge. Story by Carlyn Greco As reality set, membership dwindled. For those who pursued membership, DOA was an adventure. Brian Hajjar, a sophomore architecture major and president of the Skydiving Club, said that students are daring to accept the objectives of the club. Hajjar also said, " There is no better adrenaline rush than the one you get skydiving. " DOA members carpooled to Eloy, Ariz. to avoid the big city lights and dangerous landing sites when they skydived. The town of Eloy was approximately one hour from Tempe. Once they reached an altitude of 13,500 feet, they had a minute of free-falling where they caught their breaths from the initial jump. Then, they held each other ' s arms and legs to practice falling in formations. Prices for the jumps, which were membership dues, decreased as more jumps were made. The average cost for three jumps topped $125. For the next six or seven jumps, the price reduced to $80 per jump. After nine or 10 jumps, students were considered professional practicers, which lowered the fee of each jump to $16. The organization hoped to receive enough funding to buy their own equipment before the end of the year because the cost of renting equipment was costly move for interested members. Scott McLaine, a junior public programs major and vice president of DOA, advised beginners to stay calm if they become scared. " The best thing to do is look down before you jump because you will not want to jump if you ' re not ready, " he added. Front: Ron McLellan, Mark Ozog, Laura Jevnikar, Zeyad Al-Husaini.

The organization boosted its status as the largest group in the nation. The group relived the medieval traditions through jousting, sword fighting and arts and crafts. " We re-enact the Middle Ages in the way we would have liked it, " Eager said. He added, " Our group is like something you would see in Excaliber or the Three Musketeers. " The organization ' s interest was to know as much as members possibly could, but their interest was not taken to an extreme. " We do not want to be a particular person from that time; we just want to GETTING understand that time period. " He also said the Middle Ages were very barbaric, and even though, it was difficult to maintain that expectation, the group managed to stay concrete. They did not support ideas and beliefs about unicorns and other situations of fantasy. Members dressed up in the traditional garb, which were individually made by each member, and copied from historical books and documents. Eager said that they follow the nobility system that had previously existed. knighthood was a very honorable status. " To become a high-ranking noble, you must be a very well-rounde d person, " Eager said. " You have to know how to cook, sew and clean as well as fight with two different kinds of weapons.

START assisted the Office of Admissions with the recruiting and the orientation of ASU students. Story by Amy Tillis The 40 members conducted individual admissions for prospective students, ran the ASU Visitation Center and gave classroom visitations. They also assisted with walk-in appointments. START began in 1985 when there was a proposal for a student volunteer team to help the admissions office with marketing and class visitations, along with giving them general support. Bob Hancock, assistant director for school relations and a START adviser, said, " There were so many inquiries into ASU that it was impossible for the staff to get all of the information out.

They also attended a retreat where they were trained in all of the admissions processes. STAR T supported events in which and out-of-state students state would spend an evening with President Coor. Suma Mathai, a sophomore undeclared major, said, " Many of the volunteers are involved in other activities, but that is good because they can bring their varied expertise to START. " Students volunteered a minimum of at least two hours per week at the ASU Visitation Center desk located in the Services building and contributed approximately three to four more hours doing other various tasks. There was a wide variety of students involved in the program. Each START member must have a 2.75 grade point average and maintain an enthusiastic at- titude toward ASU.

She said that there was an editor for every section of the journal. For example, students chose one person to edit all the poetry submissions. Most submissions were judged on the basis on merit.

At ASU, each fraternity and sorority provided friends, tradition, and housing to its members. Signing interest cards, potential members fill out a preliminary application. Rush Week attracted many to the Greek system. Photo by Rick Escalante SECTION EDITORS KIM KAAN RENEE CARUSS WILLIAM LYNAM DIVISION this year served as a tightening-up period for the university regarding on-campus Greek parties. Fraternities and sororities faced recommendations by the Blue Ribbon Commission on the quality of Greek Life to limit the number of alcohol parties. Instead, they changed to strictly one-on-one exchanges between a fraternity and sorority, alumni events and date parties. This would have completely eliminated any of the traditional blowouts or two-on-two exchanges. Instead of needing the university to control what Greeks can or cannot do, the Greek Alcohol Risk Reduction Panel (GARRP) was formed to oversee all alcohol-related Greek events, which took place on campus. GARRP also educated chapters on their own house alcohol limit and ASU ' s alcohol policies. Gary Berger, a member of Delta Sigma Phi fraternity and chairman of GARRP, said the panel tried to prove to university officials that Greeks are capable of controlling their parties. The panel set new standards to the party scene. On-campus parties were restricted to the " Bring your own booze " rule for people who are of legal drinking age. This also meant houses, particularly fraternities, could not supply alcohol. Greek members could not serve as bartenders at their own parties. Professionals were hired. The panel implemented other new regulations. For example, one security guard would have to be present for every 74 people at the event. Also, taxi services must be available for guests free of charge. Greeks did not conform quickly to GARRP ' s demands. Instead, they sponsored parties at off-campus sites. Berger said he thinks the off-campus parties invited disaster. " I feel that moving parties off-campus only increased drunk driving and the amount of underage drinking. They are free-for-alls, regulated by the police, " Berger said. With parties being off-campus, neither GARRP nor ASU had any control over them. After Fall Rush and the new panel rules, eight fraternities hosted an off-campus blowout at the Phi Gamma Delta house. After the party, an executive officer of the Panhellenic Council was injured in an auto accident allegedly caused by a drunk driver. GARRP set the alcohol standards to avoid such instances. ❑ story by Amy Tillis PANEL TOUGHENS REGULATIONS ON CASUAL DRINKING 244 PARTY RULES Lining up for drinks, fraternities cut down on the number of alcoholic parties. Strict rules were implemented to curb partying with booze. ■ Photo by Catherine Courter PARTY RULES G REEKS 245 Greek system would not be complete without stereotypes. However, fraternity and sorority members chose to become part of the Greek system. They did not " buy their friends " or " pay their way into a huge party. " Greeks joined for professional reasons. They added their Greek associations to their resumes. They made a handful of contacts. They were a step ahead of all the rest as far as they were concerned. James B. Schreiber, a graduate education major, believed stereotypes always affected the perception of a Greek member. Schreiber said, " Perception is reality to many people. They will see and believe what they want no matter what you say to them. Personal beliefs are difficult, if not impossible, to alter. " People often questioned the price of being in fraternity or sorority. They wanted to know if the money reaped the benefits. Schreiber said, " I joined the Greek system for family tradition and personal desire. " His membership into the fraternity was not cheap for a college student ' s scale. " For my chapter, in-house dues were about $4,000 a school year. " He added that the money included expenses for room and board. He said, " We had three meals a day. On Fridays, we had two meals, and on Saturdays and Sundays, only one meal. " Schreiber said that his affiliation with the Greek system helped him after graduation. Speaking from a graduate ' s point of view, he said, " Being a Greek has already benefitted me. My first job was " won " out of 719 candidates. I believe that I got the job because the two people that interviewed me had been officers in their respective houses in college. " He added that he also received three job offers after graduation by fellow " broth ers " who worked for companies in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Dallas. Schreiber added, " Many times, it is not what you know, but who you know. " ■ Story by Renee Caruss PROFESSIONAL REASONS G REEKS Studying for a mid- term exam, James B.

It ' s not just a college social thing, " said Alpha Phi Alpha President Ashahed Triche, a senior journalism major. Pledges must have known black history as far back as the civil rights movement and the history of the fraternity which was and is currently very active in the civil rights movement, Triche added. Alpha P hi Alpha started at Cornell University in 1906 and established an ASU chapter in 1976. Prestigious members include Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Andrew Young, and honorary members like W.E. Dubois and Hubert H. Humphrey. " We don ' t care how much money you have or your father ' s standing in the community. We are more concerned with quality membership, " Triche said. " If we can have five brothers who are quality, we will take them anytime as opposed to having 50 brothers who don ' t know each other. " Alpha Phi Alpha ' s primary goals were to create a nationwide brotherhood for college men, establish networks for jobs, and act as a support group. Alpha Phi Alpha also encouraged black youths at South Mountain High School to enter college and help in the transition, said Fred Griffin, an Alpha Phi Alpha member. " We have programs like ' He Ain ' t Heavy, He ' s My Brother. ' That ' s a mentor program where Alpha Phi Alpha members acts as big brothers and help freshmen who come to ASU in the transition process, " said Triche. Triche also noted that Alpha Phi Alpha was the initiator of the black voter registration campaign. Alpha Phi Alpha was not upset with African-Americans who have chosen a white fraternity over a predominantly black fraternity. " If they feel that ' s what they want to do then that ' s fine. Alpha Phi Alpha doesn ' t shun anyone. They need all the support they can get no matter what decision they have made, " said Griffin. Alpha Phi Alpha was not strictly a black fraternity. There were also Hispanic and Philippine members. The ASU chapter also kept in close contact with the California and Chicago chapters.

Approximately 400 women from 11 sororities participated in the Watermelon Bust to benefit Multiple Sclerosis. Four hundred watermelons lined the field as the games were ready to begin. Chris Ruby, vice president of Lambda Chi Alpha, said that the teams started competition with a sorority chant. Ruby said, " This gets each sorority excited about the event, and it shows team spirit. " The watermelon push started the day. It consisted of a watermelon being pushed down the field with a broom. The event continued with a stretcher relay where the watermelons were balanced on top of two brooms while two participants ran down the field. The games extended throughout the whole day and finally ended with a tug-of-war match. " At the end of the day, less than 10 watermelons were left over, " said Ruby. Ruby also said that all unused watermelons were donated to food shelters. All fraternities and sororities cleaned the lawn after the event to assure good relations with the university. Winners included Kappa Kappa Gamma, Alpha Phi and Alpha Delta Pi. Alpha Delta Phi won the whole event. The Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity charged S 100 for each participating sorority. Dana Cargill, a sophomore pre-med major, said, " This event is wild and crazy! " Aaron Carpenter, a sophomore broadcasting major, agreed, noting the event was " messy, but fun. " Ruby said that he thought the event was definitely the most important event of the year. He said, " It promotes the Greek system as well as Lambda Chi Alpha and the sororities who participate. " Ruby added, " It was a lot of work, but once I saw the results, it was a great feeling seeing that everything came together. " Jennifer Norris, a junior broadcasting major, said " Participating in the Watermelon Bust is a fun way to meet people, eat watermelon and raise money. " The event raised $1,600.

To a member of the Greek system, legacies indicated a future — a future member. For sororities and fraternities, a legacy was a familiar face, a piece of history and above all, a new member. Greeks defined legacies as members whose grandmothers grandfathers, mothers fathers or sisters brothers were also members of the Greek system. Many fraternities and sororities treated legacies with extreme care. In fact, during Rush Week, the fraternities and sororities usually showered legacies with extra kindness in hopes to make them members of their houses. Greeks become " legs " between one house or another. Double legacies meant there were two generations of Greeks in the same house. Although double legacies were difficult to find, triple legacies were even harder to find. Yet, at ASU, Kappa Kappa Gamma managed to recruit a 27th legacy. Betsy Hann, a freshman special education major and a legacy to Kappa Kappa Gamma, revealed she is the 27th generation of Kappas in her family. Hann ' s first relative initiated into the Indiana University Kappa chapter in 1889 where the tradition began. She, however, was the first to venture out from IU when she came to ASU. Hann was excited when asked to be a Kappa at ASU. She said, " No questions asked, I wanted to be a Kappa. " To top off the Hann family tradition, the pin that the Hann women wore had been passed down to each new member. " I am very excited to get my great-great-grandmother ' s pin, " Hann said. " It is definitely a valued and cherished piece of jewelry to the women in my family. " Legacies were so important to the Greek system that houses attempted to steal them from each other. It was a conquest to get a legacy and then to make a good impression. to Story by Amy Tillis their family ' s tradition.

The week consisted of a total of 33 parties and approximately 23 hours of constant singing, chanting and smiling. By the end of the week, rushees walked around with permanent smiles because their facial muscles had stiffened throughout the week. Their heads ached for more reasons than were imaginable. As sorority rushees waited outside of the classroom doors of the Farmer Education Building, a loud echo rolled through the hallway. It was all 14 sororities pounding on the doors and walls while singing and chanting. Many of their voices had disappeared by the end of the week. After the intial shock of Opening Day, most of the rushees became more relaxed. Each rushee talked to a few of the active members in which the pledges answered many usual interview questions, such as " Where are you from? " , " What is your major? " and " What activities did you do in high school? " To get a basic idea about each of the houses, rushees were " rushed " around from sorority to sorority for 10-minute intervals. Most of the girls did not have time to process the details of each house. Rose Karrels, Alpha Phi sorority member, said, " You are rushed from place to place and you meet so many girls that they all seem to look alike after awhile. " Rushees were then asked to make a bid on the house of their choice where they would show their decision on Preference Night. By the end of the night, the pledges narrowed their choices down from 14 to three, a process which was very stressful. Perhaps this was the most important event. Most actives wore black semi-formal dresses, and rushees were also dressed to impress. Compared to the loud chanting and noise of previous parties, the occasion maintained a ceremonious atmosphere. The room was tense and emotions were strong because it was time for houses and rushees to make their final decisions. All that was left was waiting. The next day, pledges opened their Bid Card, which would tell them their sorority ' s name. Many hearts were but at the same time, many dreams came true for those who received their first choice. On Bid Day, the girls gathered in the M.U. to get their cards, while each house congregated on Hayden Lawn. Both groups were nervous and to meet their new sisters. As the girls received their cards, they ran up to their new " sisters " and were embraced by many of them. Karrels said, " On Bid Day, some girls walked off crying but most were ecstatic. I was ecstatic. " After Rush Week, many girls just. wanted to rest and take some Tylenol.

The organizations included Alpha Kappa Sorority Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. Sigma Gamma Rho was another nationally recognized black sorority, but had not chartered as a chapter on ASU ' s campus. These sororities existed since almost the turn of the century, beginning with Alpha Kappa Alpha, which was founded in 1908. Most members of black sororities saw their organizations as " different " from other sororities because each organization was a special part of life on a prominently white campus. " I guess I feel like my organization, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, was like a family for me since I am out of state and because we know everybody intimately and I feel like we have a strong bond, " said Sherri Moore, a communication major and president of Alpha Kappa Alpha, one of 12 members of her chapter at ASU. Moore saw more advantages to being a member of a black sorority. She said, " It is a great networking system; we keep our ties after graduating because we have a graduate chapter. " Although her organization was a member of Panhellenic, the organization of all sororities on campus, she perceived the other groups based on their differences. Moore said, " The biggest difference is that we do stress a life committment and when you join Alpha Kappa Alpha, it ' s for life; it ' s not just a college thing. " She added that the purpose of the white sororities differed from what her sorority focused on. She said, " Our national office mandates us to belong to Panhellenic. However, I do not feel that we are very compatible because of our different agendas. " Moore enjoyed the events associated with her chapter. She said, " We are more than just a social organization on the under graduate and graduate level. We have national targets that we meet and the targets help place emphasis on improving the annual Black Graduate Recognition Gala, a mentoring program for junior high school students and through service seminars. " Moore also noted that her organizations provided self defense, health and other seminars, which were specifically designed to comment on issues within the black community. • Story by Joy Beason SUCCESS GREEKS SERVE AS MENTORS TO YOUNGER GENERATION 256 AFRICAN- AMERICAN SORORITIES G REEKS Preparing for a group shot, Sakena Marshall, a senior liberal arts major, and Sherri Moore, a jun ior communication major, discuss upcoming organization plans.

Story by Kim Kaan late At from the Board and the Athletics Department The decision devastated all the athletes who needed the scholarship and the university ' s support. Charles Harris, director of the Athletics Department, said the cut was part of a plan to reduce the department ' s $3.5 cumulative deficit. Harris also said that the governing board targeted the three sports on the basis of its actual operating costs. Both the men ' s and women ' s programs were cut from the department, and in gymnastics, only the men ' s team was eliminated. Harris said, " In the case of men ' s the ICA Board determined they would need endowment support in the amount of $2.25 million in case revenue to offset operating expenses. " Don Robinson, head coach for men ' s gymnastics, said he was led to believe that the team only needed to raise $189,000. " I would have never tried to raise the money if I knew about the $2.25 million, " Robinson said. Harris said that the department the subsequent one-year operating budget of $189,000 in the Spring 1993 semester. Therefore, Robinson attempted to raise the $189,000 through fund-raising The team asked country-western singer Willie Nelson and motivational author Og Mandino to perform and speak at a event in which all proceeds would solely benefit the team. Robinson said the event raised a substantial amount of money and was just short of their goal. However, Robinson said approximately $15,000 was enough to operate the team during the next school year. " There are a lot of good scholarship guys and we have produced some great teams, " Robinson said. Many of the gymnasts continued their training after college by working as for professional sports. Robinson said, " We have five guys from the 1985 National Championship team who have worked as mascots for five NBA (National Basketball Association) teams.

The Sun Devils ripped the win from the Utes ' hands. ■ Photo by William Lynam FOR THE Football Head Coach Bruce Snyder smelled a win. The Sun Devils smelled the same aura of victory, and so it went. The Sun Devils played against the Utah Utes, a team who had avoided a zero shut-out since 1983. ■ Story by Renee Caruss ASU had a very positive start. They rushed 72 yards, which exceeded the Utes ' s total by 24 yards. The total of offensive plays culminated in 168 yards compared to the Utes 56 yards. In other words, the Devil were all action and no talk. The first quarter ended with a pass to Mario Bates, who carried the ball for the team ' s first touchdown. The excitement continued with a complete pass to Clyde McCoy, making for another touchdown and a 14-0 lead for the Sun Devils. The momentum did not stop. Jake Plummer, one of the team ' s quarterbacks, came in for the Devils in the third quarter. His first pass was complete to Carlos Artis who ran 78 yards to score his first touchdown of the game. ASU was on a winning streak as the Sun Devils continued to pound on the Utes, which ended in a 38-0 win. According to Head Coach Bruce Snyder, confidence was a factor in the win. He also noted that the team had a motto, " One at a time. " Snyder said, " This will be our theme forever. It was important for our players to focus on this because they can play hard and smart. " A strong belief in the theme was an answer for the victory against the Utes. According to Snyder, the belief in " One at a time " should have been on the minds. He added, " This victory was a great start for the season. It left a positive attitude with the team, and with the way the game unfolded, we had the opportunity to play all of our eligible players. " Despite the many uplifts to this game, the inevitable happened. Justin Dragoo, linebacker for the Devils, suffered an injury that put him out for the rest of the season. Snyder said, " Dragoo was a veteran player and it ' s very hard emotionally for our team to have lost him. He is a terrific player and makes great plays. His will be missed the most. " The Devils ' opening against the Utes showed strength and encouragement for the upcoming year. More importantly, it made believers out of the fans and the players. ASU VS.

Grady Benton, quarterback and a sophomore liberal arts major, completed a pass to Johnny Thomas, a junior wide receiver, for a 34-yard touchdown. As ASU defense was relentless, the offense kept its end of the bargain, which resulted in another score and the biggest play of the game. Larry Boyd, a senior justice studies major and defensive fullback, went for the sack of the Oklahoma State and managed to get a safety to win the game. " This was the greatest moment of the game, because it gave us the edge in the game to win, " said Taylor Winningham , a freshman liberal arts major and a defensive back. Head Coach Bruce Snyder said that the game improved the team ' s morale and gave the team a definite advantage. " Our main objective was a strong homestand. It has given us good focus and it ' s important for us to take this advantage, " Snyder said. Although the rest of the season looked toward a bowl game Snyder said, " I liked the control of the game defensively. " He added, " There were 35 more plays, plenty of time to pass and twice as many firstdowns, but we had no big plays for touchdowns. " With this win against Oklahoma State, the prospect of a bowl game came closer. Snyder said, " The Pac-10 conference is a very tight race, and there ' s only a slight difference in talent level. We know we will see our many ups and downs, but what defines our team will show how close we can get. " The team-building incentive to win did not just come with each game, to Snyder. The team decided that their hard work at summer practice should result in a bowl game. Again, the theme, " One at a Time, " had been ingrained in the team ' s mind since the very beginning of the season. It was instrumental to maintain team morale and to improve the team ' s overall progress, which had also given them an undefeated record at home up to that point. Boyd said, " The theme ' One at a Time ' has been around since Coach Snyder first came. " He added, " At first, the team had a hard time buying into it, but as time went on, we realized how important it is to our everyday lives and to our team as a whole. " ASU VS.

ASU beat California with a 41-0 score. ■ Photo by Craig Macnaughton HOMECOMING 2 SPORTS ADD TO THE Sun Devil Stadium transformed into a blazing inferno as the football team added finishing touches to Homecoming weekend. The Sun Devils burned California with a 41-0 win. Coach Bruce Snyder had a special interest in the Kim Kaan Snyder coached the Golden Bears for four years before coming to ASU. He led California to a win at the 1991 Citrus Bowl. He hoped to bring the Sun Devils to a bowl victory. The game started out slowly with many incomplete passes and penalties. But soon after its start, junior Johnny Thomas completed a 60-yard pass from Jake Plummer, freshman quarterback. Plummer planned on being a redshirt during his first year at Arizona State, but to his surprise, he started as quarterback in all the games following the Washington State game earlier in the season. In his starts, the Sun Devils averaged 37 points per game as compared to 21 points per game before Plummer served as the starting quarterback. Plummer was also the first true freshman to start a game since 1984. The team headed down the field. Jon Baker, junior, attempted the field goal, which was wide left. At the end of the first quarter, neither Arizona State nor Golden State scored a point, but it was soon to change. As the Sun Devils moved closer to the California endzone, the offense played aggresively. Carlos Artis, a sophomore, completed several passes from Plummer, bringing the team one step closer to scoring. Baker ' s next attempt for a field goal was good. His 50-yard punt put the Sun Devils on the scoreboard for the first time. No long after, Baker punted for an- other field goal making the score 6-0. The Sun Devils completed two field goals 11 minutes into the second quarter with 4 minutes until halftime. Right before time ran out, Plummer threw a 25-yard pass to Steve Bush, a sophomore. The team aimed for a touchdown the end of the first half. Plummer passed the ball to Thomas, who earned the first touchdown for six points. The Sun Devils attempted to rush for the extra field-goal points, but the Golden Bears did not let them. Both teams headed for the locker rooms after the second quarter with the Sun Devils leading 12-0. During halftime, Sun Devil fans watched the band perform. In addition, five former ASU athletes were inducted into the Hall of Fame. The ceremony continued as Homecoming royalty waved to the crowd.

Bates returned after undergoing major reconstructive surgery on his knee in the last football season and was expected to improve as the season progressed. Bates, a Tucson native, placed second in the Pac-10 conference in rushing. Slowly, the Sun Devils headed down the field where they finally reached the endzone. Plummer passed the ball to junior Parnell Charles for the touchdown. The field goal led the team with a 19-0 score. Close to the end of the third quarter, McCoy caught a 47-yard pass but was not able to score before the quarter ended. Early in the fourth quarter, however, the team managed to score another as well as score an extra two points for rushing the field goal, which now gave the Sun Devils a 27-0 score. The Golden Bears were burned in the fourth quarter as the Sun Devils consistently dominated the field. ASU attempted to make another but a penalty on the play forced the team to punt for the field goal. By the end of the game, the Sun Devils managed to shut-out California with a 41-0 win.

The loss against the University of Arizona dashed the of all fans. Shaun Rachau Alamo Bowl officials chose California as the Pac-10 representative that faced Iowa in the first annual New Year ' s Eve bowl game broadcast nationally on ESPN, even though ASU finished in a fourth- place tie in the conference with the Golden Bears at 4-4. But ASU ' s 34-20 loss to the U of A, coupled with California ' s 42-18 thumping of Hawaii, brought the Sun Devils hopes of playing in a bowl game with a 6- 5 record to an immediate halt. " It really doesn ' t matter whether I agree or not, " Head Coach Bruce Snyder said. He added, " I knew that if you end up in a tie, it is up to a bowl committee and it is a flip of a coin. Then, it ' s politics, image and a lot of different things. " Despite California ' s 8-4 record and three-game winning streak, ASU officials believed it was still a legitimate contender for the Alamo Bowl because the Sun Devils beat the Golden Bears 41-0 earlier season. However, California was without a healthy Dave Barr at quarterback and the Golden Bears are 8-0 when Barr started. The Sun Devils also were snubbed by Copper Bowl representatives when they chose Wyoming to play at Arizona Stadium in Tucson. There was also speculation ASU would land an at-large berth after Wyoming beat San Diego State, knocking the Aztecs out of consideration because they failed to win six games against Division I opponents. Snyder said the team was disappointed that their season was over, but he also said that he was proud that the team put themselves in position to be considered for a bowl game after a horrid 2-4 start. " I have found that it ' s difficult to put into words because it was almost like we had two different seasons — much like the game against U of A when we had two different halves, " Snyder said. He added, " I am disappointed, but I ' m tremendously impressed that this team fought its way out of what looked like a real dead end. " Snyder also said, " There ' s a mixed group of feelings there that are opposite of each other about the same group of people. " 270 ASU VS.

The 7-Up Shootout served as a refresher before the Pac-10 Conference. The team played St. Louis, a Great Midwest member, but was not able to squeeze by with a victory. The Sun Devils lost by 2 points in the 77-75 game. With their season of great starts, they also skimmed past SMU with a 68-58 victory during overtime. The close games motivated the team to also capture a win against Villanova. Head Coach Bill Frie der said that he was elated over the Villanova win. Although the team had a home-court advantage, Villanova put up a good fight. Frieder said, " A win over Villanova meant that we would continue to win in our tournaments, and it would certainly mean there would be more wins with big East teams. " Although ASU hustled throughout the first half, this did not intimidate Villanova. ASU led by 10 with a 35-25 score. However, Villanova managed to get back into the game. They tied the game at the end of the second half with a score of 58-58, leading into overtime. Scared of the loss, Sun Devil defense toughened and the team pulled out a victory with a final score of 73-62. A junior transfer from Los Angeles College, Issac Burton led the team with 22 points and 3 assists. Burton averaged 24 points, 11 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. For his feat, Burton was named Rookie of the Year in 1992 and Most Valuable Player in 1993. Senior Dwayne Fontana contributed greatly to the Villanova game with a double- double of 14 points and 15 rebounds. Fontana, who averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds per game, attributed his high scoring to the number of rebounds per game. Fontana was also the leading rebounder in the Pac-10. In addition, he started for the Sun for 44 consecutive games, setting the largest streak at ASU. Fontana broke the previous record, which was also set by him during his sophomore year. Sophomore Ron Riley also helped the Sun Devils with their high-scoring games. Riley had 21 points in the California game. Coincidentally, the Sun Devils are the only team in the Pac-10 to have three players listed among the top-10 scorers.

Story by Renee Caress and Perhaps the biggest challenge for the women ' s team was a new coach as well as a fairly new team. To put into one word, the changes meant transition, but the transition did not stop the team from trying and being the best they could be. " We ' ve had moral victories as the year has progressed. I ' ve got a strong, unified group of kids this year, " Head Coach Jacqueline Hallah said. " We ' ve come a long way as the season progresses; it ' s been exciting to see. " She also said that the girls focuses all their efforts for the team, which was for them. " We want our kids to be 100 percent and open to learning to be a better player and to be a better team, " Hallah added. As coach, Hallah said that she the game with a different style, which proved to be rewarding, yet more challenging, for the players. " Learning the strengths and weaknesses of the team is how we adjust the style of our game this year, " she added, noting that the team was small and relatively young. Five seniors left the team last season, leaving Crystal Cobb, Melani Francis and Nikki Thompson as the experienced Junior guard Stacey Johnson also returned to the squad as the player with the most game time. Tamika Matlock, a sophomore justice studies major, said that a new coach seems to add to the pressure of doing well for the team. Matlock said, " Because we just got a new coach, it ' s a big adjustment for all of us. " " The team is learning how to play well with each other, " she added. " It ' s hard to stay on top of things, but everyone is learning the system. " As part of her team goals, Hallah pushed for success at the Pac-10 Conference. Matlock said she thinks a victory at the Pac-10 Conference depends on two important parts. " A lot of it is the combination of a strong competition and a love for the game, " she said. The coach had her own formula and reason for going to the championships. " The Pac-10 Conference is a great because it ' s challenging to be affiliated with USC for the fifth in the country, " Hallah said. " It is great to this level of competition.

" We ' ve had a lot of challenges to overcome in a brief period of time, but our strength is minimizing our weakness and putting the pieces together to make it all work. " Head Coach Bill Frieder faced similar challenges with several key players on the injury list. The list affected the bench scoring. In the previous season, the Sun Devils outscored their opponents in 15 games. This season, ASU has outscored their opponents only once in the game against Villanova. However, the Sun Devils had a few stars to carry them through the season. Five players — Ron Riley, Issac Burton, Dwayne Fontana, Mario Bennett and Stevin Smith — balanced the offense and defense of the men ' s basketball team with all players averaging 17 points. Bennett placed on all the boards as a freshman, and was now looking to improve his collegiate career. Against Stanford, he scored 17 points and 13 rebounds. Although Bennett was on the road to recovery, Frieder remained cautious in fear the sophomore would re-injure his knee. Perhaps the most exaustive effort in the season came from Stevin " Hedake " Smith, a senior social work major. Smith tied his own record for the most three-pointers in a single game as they played against Oregon State. He also holds the career-high, Pac-10 record. He managed to score 39 points with a bandaged finger that he hurt in practice. The 88-82 win over Oregon State pushed Arizona State into second place.

Brock was the most successful coach in ASU history more than victories. William Lynam In his 22 years, Brock was only one of a handful of coaches to achieve such a statistic. Brock led the Sun Devils to the College World Series 12 times. Mike Fenton, assistant coach and former player, said, " Coach Brock won ' t accept but the best. " Some observers felt that the measure of champion college teams were not the wins, but how prepared players were for professional competition. By that measure, Brock was also a leader. Products of his program included such as Hubie Brooks, Ken Landreux and Barry Bonds. " I ' ve had about eight or nine guys go to big league organizations, " Brock said. " They ' re all doing well. " Brock added that last year ' s standout catcher, Paul LoDuca, recently signed with the L.A. Dodgers. After a disappointing season in 1992, Brock and the Sun Devils were able to find a winning formula last season. They amassed a 46-20 record and captured the Six-Pac crown. They then hosted the NCAA regionals at Packard Stadium. Brock ' s Sun Devils won the regionals and advanced to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. The Sun Devils fell to State in the finals.

" If you don ' t want to win, you won ' t make the team, " Fenton added. With another winning season behind him, Brock had already begun to for next year by scouting pitchers to support his offense. Brock said, " We ' re bringing in a few kids Oct. 10 from California and Texas. " Although the Sun Devils recruited several new faces from out of state, Brock added that there will also be a few local players.

By winning two games against the of Arizona to conclude their season to clinch the Six-Pac title, the top-ranked Sun Devils played their best baseball of the season and advanced to the College World Series with a 12-2 win against St. John ' s in the NCAA West Region Championship. Brock said, " I can ' t remember taking a team (to the College World Series) who was playing any better than this ball club has played. " The College World Series was held in Omaha, Neb. and was the first for the Sun Devils since 1988, when ASU lost to Stanford 9-4 in the game. Overall, it was ASU ' s 16th appearance in the College World Series, with the Sun Devils winning the national title five times. After a thr ee-game sweep of USC in April 1993 at Los Angeles, the Sun Devils won 11 of their remaining 15 games to conclude the season and move into first place in the Six-Pac. It was the series against USC, according to third baseman Antone Williamson, that turned the around for the Sun Devils. " I think we turned it around, and from there on out, we pretty much played up to our potential, " Williamson said. " And we turned it up again against U of A and in the (West Region) tournament. " Brock agreed the series against USC had a significant impact on the team. " We, at that point, decided we were clearly the best team in the league, " Brock said. " And five other teams in the league clearly decided that we were the best team in the league. " The Sun Devils carried their momentum from the regular season into the post-season. In their four West Regional games, the Sun Devils scored 10 home runs and hit .378 as a team. " I think this is the best baseball we ' ve played all year by far, " said catcher Paul LoDuca. The only thing he was hoping was for the Sun Devils to win 40 games. The Sun Devils won more than 40 games, but much more happened for LoDuca in his first season at ASU. A senior and a transfer student from Glendale Community College, LoDuca became a pop icon in Tempe and held the ASU single-season hit record after passing former-Sun Devil, and one-time major leaguer, Hubie Brooks.

" I never thought at the beginning of the year that I would get the record, " LoDuca said. " It wasn ' t one of my goals, but has gone well. " He added, " Hubie Brooks was a great major leaguer. It is just a great feeling to be on top of some of those categories, especially at this program. " Coincidentally, Brooks broke the hit record in the 1978 College World Series against St. John ' s — the same team LoDuca broke Brook ' s record against. " It is fitting that LoDuca got his hit against us, " St. John ' s coach Joe Russo said. " He is an outstanding hitter. " LoDuca credited most of his success to having third baseman Antone Williamson and designated hitter Todd Cady hitting behind him. " With those kind of hitters behind me, I think I ' ve seen a lot of good pitches all year, " LoDuca said. " And even with Doug (Newstrom) in front of me, I probably got a lot of RBIs because he ' s been on base so much. " Much of the Sun Devils ' hitting success in the West Regional came from the many left-handed pitchers they faced throughout the tournament. " By facing all of the lefties, it seemed like I got in a groove and the whole team got in a groove, " LoDuca said. " It seems like our team has adjusted well against lefties. " Brock worried about the number of left- handed pitchers. " We went into the series concerned about the fact that we didn ' t want to face anymore left-handed pitching than we had to, " Brock said. He added, " For us to make the adjustments that we were able to make there, while the pitching and defense were doing as well as they did, it just wasn ' t planned.

" The other moment was the five-game match at New Mexico. We had to fight a blizzard to get there, and we won the first round, " Snyder said. She added, " We also are a good team on the road. " Along with the great points of the season, there were low points as well. Nancy Christian, a senior member of the team, said, " The most disappointing point in our season was that we wanted to finish higher in the Pac 10. " On a similar note, Snyder said, " I think that one of the disappointing points of our season was our loss to Cal twice. " But, the disappointing points did not discouraged the team. Instead, Snyder said there was a lot of team spirit and tremendous team effort. " Our juniors and seniors are on strength and conditioning all the time, " Snyder said.

The women ' s swimming team placed ninth in the championship, and finished with an overall 6-2 season. Tim Hill, head coach for women ' s swimming, said that there were several crucial plays in the 1993 season. Perhaps, the most exciting, according to Hill, was their national competition.

Better yet, we are here with our finished yearbook. This means no more scary walks to the bathroom during late nights in the basement and no more hurried trips to Federal Express one day before deadline. But, what does a finished yearbook mean? To me, the yearbook is a collection of memories for the university, for the students and especially, for the yearbook staff because our dedicated efforts will remain a part of ASU forever. One look at this year ' s edition will definitely bring back memories for me. Can anyone relate? Bill, I bet you can — a million thanks for being my right-hand man.

Don ' t get a degree in Social Work and don ' t name your kid " Sybil. " Wencke, I have one question: Why did we always eat foods with tomato sauce?

Begging for more stories, Copy Editor Renee Caruss enlists the help of Residence Life Editor Wencke Tate, a senior broadcasting major, and Academics Editor Jason Hill, a senior journalism major. Caruss was on a constant search for her staff. The bridge from Palo Verde Beach to Palm Walk served as the link from the outside to the campus. Once on the inside, the campus grew. A number of services and facilities centered on the students ' needs. The Student Services building was like one-stop shopping. On the first floor, the undergraduate admissions office greeted potential students, parents and visitors needing a good color- coded map. Students lined up to get unofficial copies of transcripts and student ID cards. The Graduation Office was right around the corner for those who though they were eligible to petition. Counselors reviewed of study to see if all requirements were met. Perhaps the most familiar floor in the SS building was the second. The Financial Aid Office disbursed funds to loan-hungry students. The Fee Payment desks were always happy to take cash, checks and credit cards. Finally, Career Services and the Career Development Center occupied the third floor. Graduates interviewed with on-campus For anyone who used ASTJ services, the building was essential to the campus experience. Starting from the edge of University Drive, Palm Walk leads to campus. The walk ended at the Student Recreation Center.

Others indulged by joining campus organizations and committees. But no matter how long on campus, the university offered something for everybody, which was evident from the outside. The search for the average ASU student was constant because there was no one person that represented the norm. Students were everywhere! They lived in the lounges of the Memorial Union. They lived on the concourse level of Hayden Library. They did not conform to one look. However, sweats and shorts were common clothing that seemed appropriate for class especially when students planned to between classes. They also had ideas on how to spend their day. Some came to campus for one hour; others spent the whole day. Many walked to the Student Recreation Center for some rigorous Many stayed in the air-conditioning and played video games. It was a struggle to go to class everyday, but students found creative ways to motive themselves. Others spent their days on the lookout for new excuses for why they did not go to class. ■ Cooling off in the Cady Mall fountain, tuba players from the Sun Devil Marching Band find a new way to polish the brass. ■ Photo by Rick Escalante ■ Photo by William Lynam ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY CLOSING ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY CLOSING 389 Joking with 3-year old Corey Sorenson, senior offensive tackle Jeff Kysan wipes the sweat from his face.
