THE ELMS ELMHURST COLLEGE ELMHURST, ILLINOIS VOLUME 60 1978 o A yearbook is a memory book, something bought to preserve in some small measure a time that was. It is in a material sense just a collection of paper, ink, chemicals and dyes. Add to this the human element and it is shaped into a form which transcends the importance of the book ' s physical contents. This book is a record for a special group of people be it students, faculty or administration of Elmhurst College. Created by a handful of students, this records the life that was. Hopefully it will bring back memories of the passions and emotions of life at E.C. in 1977-78. This book then is dedicated to you the students and staff of Elmhurst College. ELMHURST COLLEGE IS ... A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING! E.C. is a learning experi- ence. But there are many other activities going on outside of the student ' s usual curricu- lar schedule. " Like what? " you say. Think about it. Look through these pages. Here is campus life as we see it. How do you see it? is what you make it. Be yourself, conform with others or do both. E.G. can be exciting. Go ahead . . . who said you couldn ' t get high on life? Sit on some picnic tables, take a walk, eat, sleep or whatever! 11 13 FACES AND PLACES 17 Welcome To New Student Orientation Freshman orientation was a suc- cessful endeavor again this year. Fun and learning experiences were mixed to welcome the freshmen. An egg toss, relays, seminars, a dance and a tug-of-war over a mud hole were just a few of the activities planned for the fresh- men. Most of the upperclassmen participating in the orientation program had just as much fun (or more!) as the freshmen. 20 HOMECOMING Homecoming was something very different this year. We had the Casino Night instead of a concert. With a crowd of several hundred people, a band, some standup comics, as well as a wide assortment of gaming tables. Casino Night had a combination that spelled success. Saturday was no less exciting as we romped over North Park ' s Vikings 36-6, a sight most heartening to fans of old E.C. The beautiful, sunny weather and a Bluejay Victory, thanks to Coach Tom Beck and our football squad, set the mood for the dinner dance at Stouffer ' s in Oakbrook. The dance as it turned out was a nice way to end an excellent day. But there was more to Homecoming than the fact that we had a good day in football or that there was a big turnout for Casino Night or for the dinner dance. The real significance lies in the rekindling of SPIRIT here at Elmhurst. People are starting to cheer again, there are both female AND male cheerleaders, people are holding pep rallies, and all kinds of neat things are happening. Because along with the spirit comes pride. Pride in our institutions and ourselves. And pride plus spirit can move us to do great things. So look at the pride and spirit in these pictures and think of what we can do in the future. 24 25 27 Under the direction of Alan W. Weiger, the Elmhurst College Theatre broke box office records at the Mill Theatre with productions of GODSPELL (October 27, 28, 29, November 3, 4, and 5) and THE LION IN WINTER (March 10, 11, 17, and 18). Technical and managerial assistants for the two productions in- cluded Shelia FassI, Kathi Hall, Evanne Marconi, Kirk Miller, and BethAnn Weber. Both GODSPELL and LION IN WINTER were staged in " three-quarter thrust " which encouraged an intimate rapport be- tween actors and audience. 28 Originally, five performances of GODSPELL were scheduled. Demand for tickets required an additional perfor- mance. Based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew, the musical played to " standing room only " audiences. The singing- dancing-acting cast included Debra Baily, John Beyers, Dave Brisbin, Mel Chaney, Rick Dane, Susan Dilleshaw, Bonnie Hatmaker, Melody Lewis, john Lundquist, and Francine Lynch. Choreographed by Laura Riani Weiger, the cast was supported by on-stage musicians Tony Camardo, Jay Howard, Scott Madden, John Mar- rella. Perry Mascetti, Larry Mikeska, George Shutack, Gordon Toudt, and Rick Turner. Additional music was ar- ranged by Dave Brisbin and George Shutak. 29 THE LION IN WINTER THE LION IN WINTER, based on historic fact, - ■ ' f amusingly developed the conflict between King , X Henry II of England (played by Jeff Crossland) and his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine (Julie White) about which of their sons would inherit the throne-Richard (John Leding), Geoffrey (Marty Blank), or John (Mike Poznanovich). Com- plicating the plot were King Philip of France (Christopher Mayer) and his sister. Alias (Lynda Caldwell). Two of the four performances of THE LION IN WINTER were sold out. 30 LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE For the second consecutive year, student leaders met in a mid-winter workshop sponsored by Omi- cron Delta Kappa, Campus Life Council, the Col- lege Union Board, and the Dean of Students Of- fice to discuss the quality of life on campus, develop leadership techniques, and to get to know one another better. Improve C w jjif 5 d Hflt Lire — iir III liiiiiii ' ' - 32 ' nonce By DANCE MARATHON Among other things happening on campus this year we had the First An- nual Dance Marathon for Muscular Dystrophy. The event was organized by Fred Fotis, Tom Walsh, Debbie Faber and Kim Vack, with awards and refreshments being donated by Miller Brewing, Union Board, Alpha Tau Omega, Alpha Phi Alpha, Niebuhr Hall, and Inga ' s " deli. " Music was pro- vided by the disc jockeys of WRSE using the Union Board Sound system, and by the band Risk on Saturday night. The thirty hour happening pulled in six thousand and thirty five dollars in pledges. That figure was reached mainly through the perseverance of the dancers, shown by the fact that twenty two of twenty eight couples fin- ished. The first two couples in terms of collecting pledges were Tom Lynch and Lynda Grigic and Craig Spoko and Betty van Eynde. It is hoped that next year ten thousand dollars can be raised, and if participation is any- thing like this year that amount should be no problem. or the AGAHj SCULAR DYSTROI 33 a gieaaB aasa sas what can one say about Jazz Festival 1978? It was big, fast paced, and exciting, that ' s what. Judged by Dan Morgenstern, and Kai Winding, this year ' s festival proved to be a big success. Friday afternoon, all of Saturday, and Sun- day afternoon were set aside for festival performance sessions, Sunday morning being reserved for the festival worship ser- vice. On Sunday evening, those bands, combos, and vocalists which had been awarded " outstanding " status performed. Also awards were handed out. Then came the last of the evening ' s highlights as Kai Winding and Don Menza performed with E.C. ' s own Jazz Band. All in all a very fine weekend and a job well done by Bob Skallerup and his dedicated crew. 35 FESTIVAL OF FOOLS 36 37 DINKMEYER Dinkmeyer Dorm Council: Front; Alfreddo Bouquet, Bob Smith-R.A., Dave Sprik, Cal Saunders-Head Resident, Bruce Peoples-R.A.

It was a spe- cial day for the seniors who had fi- nally finished and awaited their di- plomas in the warm May sun. The highlights of the day were the speeches given by Dr. Rudoplh Schade and Mr. Bill Kurtis. Dr. Schade reminded the graduating stu- dents that the day was not just an end but also a beginning, just as his second retirement from teaching. Bill Kurtis reminded the audience that there is still much to be done to im- prove the world in which we live and that there are still adventures to be lived out in the world today. On this note then diplomas were awarded and 1978 ' s graduates started their new beginning. 42 44 45 OH NO!

Playing in the Northern Illinois Collegiate Hockey Associa- tion the players ended their season with a 20-7-1 overall record. They also finished 2nd in the North division for a 2nd straight year. Captains Larry Latas and Bob Myjak, also with Billy Abromitis, Odi Scoubeck, Jim Myjak, Bob Rasche, Dave Koludrovic, Greg Kerr, George Klasen and Rick Williams made up half of the league all star team. Williams incidently was the leagues leading goal tender. Since almost the whole team should be returning next year should bring even more excitement as the Elmhurst Hockey Club seeks the Division Championship which has eluded them thus far. 62 Front: Manager Paul Bersani, Steve Quaid, Odi Sroubek, Greg Kerr, )im Myjak, Rich Williams, George Klasen, Bob Mallet k.

These ladies are seen at various points of your college career at Elm- hurst. The yearbook staff would like to ac- knowledge the many women who work to try to make college life easier (although sometimes you may think otherwise)! THANK-YOU LADIES! 84 FOOTBALL Behind the leadership and talent of three outstanding seniors, the 1977 football team ended its season with an impressive 5-4 record after losing its first three games. The season held many highlights for the Bluejays, as they provided only the sixth winning football season for E.C. in the last twenty-two years. Elmhurst ' s top three senior players-John Gatziolas, Tom Gaucius and Earl Wilcek— were all named to the NAIA District 20 All-Star team, as well as being nominated to the S.l.D. All-State team, along with junior Roy Ca- sali. Earl Wilcek was the only Elmhurst player to be named to the C.C.I.W. All-Conference team, although john Gatziolas, Tom Gaucius and Rick Green were among those specially mentioned. Wilcek was also chosen as the defensive player of the year in the C.C.I.W., as well as the team ' s most valuable player on defense. Gaucius was chosen as the most valuable offensive player. 86 Front Row: Rick Allen, Chris Kelso, Jeff Baiek, Jack Alden, Tom Foote, Mike Holthe, james Jones, |eff Reher, Mike Hruskocy, Morgan Singel, Curt Pace, Mike Tice, Joe Slyman, Mike Molle, Tony Russo, Bill Lundgren, Bill Melaniphy, Mike Pankowiak.

Latas, S. Swearingen, K. Millar, M. McClure (top), M. Sonnenberg, E. Adickes, Coach M. Skora. The Cross Country team this year, some might say, was in sad shape. But actually the team didn ' t do too badly considering One-half the squad was made up of " first-timers ' and many times foot injuries and problems intered with our lineup. The main concern of our team this season was to run basically to im- prove ourselves as individuals. And that is what we did. With a little ef- fort and some good recruiting we will be running better next season. 96 WOMEN ' S TENNIS 97 WOMEN ' S VOLLEYBALL Head Coach Kapsalis Asst.

The team record of 3-10 may not show it but the women ' s Softball team has improved since last year. Their hitting, fielding and base running have all improved and the team should be at least as strong as most of the squad is returning. What these dedicated players need is some people rooting for them. So come on out next year and help them win more games. 100 101 102 ART The Art Department staff and students are de- lighted to be back in their own newly remo- delled studios in Old Main. The new Sculpture Studio is located in the basement and is fully equipped for modelling and casting, welding, woodworking and assemblage. There is a drill press, band saw, radial arm saw, belt and disc Sanders, etc., and the small tools are on the pneumatic power system for lightness, ease of handling, versatility and safety. The Graphics Studio is also in the basement and students can enjoy the spacious work areas with ease of movement from one process of printing to an- other. The Photography Studio, on the third floor, contains eight new enlargers and three film unloading rooms to accommodate students without crowding, and also has fully equipped new sinks for developing film and paper. The Painting and Drawing Studios are bright and spacious with track lighting for dramatic illumi- nation of models and still life, and the art his- tory and critique rooms are comfortable, attrac- tive and equipped with audio-visual media. All in all the new Art Department facilities make both teaching and learning art a renewed plea- sure at Elmhurst College.

The Center emphasizes adapt- ive analytical, communicative and interperson- al competencies and encourages a broad per- spective which comes through contact with a wide variety of disciplines. CHEMISTRY Chemistry, the science of the metamophoses of matter, is important in the intellectual lives of many students seeking a liberal education. Chemistry at Elmhurst College offers to both day and evening students the training of professional chemists. The education of chem- istry students at both introductory and advanc- ed levels is intended to reflect the relationship of chemistry with other disciplines and to be responsive to the impact of chemical science on society. Students majoring in chemistry have a wide variety of options to proceed into a diverse range of professional activities. Many careers in the chemical industry, government and other areas are open to graduates with a good background in chemistry combined with computer science (for chemical information and retrieval system); law (for patent work); Business Administration (for sales, purchasing, management, marketing, and market re- search); systems engineering (for work in pol- lution control, urbanism and ecology) and history, literature, and philosophy (for liter- ature research and technical editing). Dr. Losey, Dr. Glogorsky, chairperson. Dr. Ophardt, Dr. Ganchoff. 106 EDUCATION Offering a full range of courses, the Depart- ment of Education provides an adequate base of ideas, understanding, and skills needed by the beginning teacher, with some advanced courses also for the post graduate teacher. Basic programs are provided for the preparation of elementary school teachers and for junior high and high school teachers. Elmhurst College teacher preparation programs are accredited by the Illinois State Teacher Certification Board and by The National Commission on Accredi- tation of Teacher Education. The department will feel the loss of Dr. Ervin Schmidt, current chairperson, whom is retiring at the end of the 1978 school year. Mrs. Aldrich, Education secretary takes a break for a picture.

All of us read, and read many different kinds of things-textbooks, essays, novels, and poems. All of us write, and write for many different purposes-to provide information, to persuade others, to reveal our private visions of the world and of ourselves. The Depart- ment can point students toward successful reading and writing. It offers them an oppor- tunity to encounter writers, and readers, who can serves as touchstones who have turned to processes o f reading and writing into literature.

A student may major in Speech Communication, in Theatre, in Speech Education, or in Speech Pathology. Most of the departmental courses offerings may be taken by both majors or non-majors; some of the courses meet part of the language and thought requirements; some of them meet the fine arts requirement. As a supplement to the curriculum in Speech Communication, the Department offers co- curricular or extra-curricular programs. One way in which the curriculum is supplemented is through the Speech Practicum program (Radio Practicum or Theatre Practicum Study). Through these one-quarter courses, the stu- dent either as a major or a non-major gains practical experience and insight into radio, theatre, or speech therapy. Another way in which the curriculum is supplemented is through non-classroom activities, which include theatre productions, WRSE-FM (the College radio sta- tion), and speech pathology students provide therapy for children and adults, supervised by the Speech Clinic staff. Additional non-class- room activities participated in by students are diagnostic evaluation, screening tests of speech and hearing, conferences with parents, and writing of reports. The Speech Clinic was established in 1946 to serve both as a training center for Elmhurst College students majoring in speech and language pathology and as a community service for the diagnosis and treat- ment of speech and language disorders. Ther- apy is usually conducted by students, super- vised by staff members having the Certificate of Clinical Competence issued by the American Speech and Hearing Association. The Clinic has recently added a program to Activate Communication Through Theraplay (ACTT). Dr. Schmidt, chairperson, Dr. Low, Mr. )uday, Mr. Gow, Dr. Goodban, Mr. Weiger, Ms. Blif h. SPEECH AND SPEECH CLINIC 109 GEOGRAPHY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING The staff of the Department of Geography and Environmental Planning strives to allow students to gain a better understanding of the interaction between man and his physical environment. This relationship is a very dynamic one and stu- dents in the department study a variety of sub- jects such as food production systems, environ- mental and transportation management, physical landforms, climate remote sensing, and planning for rural and urban needs. In-class study, field trips, and internships offer students a variety of learning environments to better pre- pare them for careers in this field. HISTORY Mr. Blum, Dr. Schade, Dr. Burdick, chairperson, not shown Dr. Cunningham. Striving to meet the changing needs and inter- ests of students and their environment, the De- partment of History challenges and alters both the nature and the emphasis of History course offerings. Dr. Wally Brudick Jr., chairperson comments, " We are committed to keeping the study of History an exciting and relevant facet of a person ' s education. History has always been an essential part of the education of the truly educated person and our goal continues to be one of providing understanding to the per- son seeking to comprehend the nature and ori- gins of his world. " The Geography Department was glad to have Dr. Bohnert return full-time on their staff. 110 What ' s Up Doc? Dr. Paul F. Ries was acting chairperson for the Department of Geography and Environmental Planning second semester, while Dr. Robert was temporarily on sabbatical leave. Dr. Lagerway is the chairperson. 112 113 MATHEMATICS Offering a strong major in mathematics, the Department of Mathematics prepares students for careers in teaching or industry, or for grad- uate work. The department recently instituted a computer component to the course offering so that students could obtain a background in computer science. Dr. Mason, chairperson commented, " There is a substantial demand for mathematics graduates in all of the math- ematics fields which the college offers. " Co- operating with the Department of Education, the Department of Mathematics provides courses for prospective teachers in the field of mathematics. The Department of Mathematics also cooperates with the Department of Bus- iness Administration in offering a joint pro- gram for students who are interested in the application of mathematics to business admin- istration and marketing. MUSIC Developing professional musicians in music education, music busness, church music, music therapy and piano pedogogy, and pre- paring students for graduate study leading to college teaching, performance, music librarian- ship, arts management and composing, are the main goals of Elmhurst College Depart- ment of Music. The Department of Music also serves the stu- dent who desires a program of music study within a more traditional liberal arts curricu- lum. For the general Elmhurst College student the Department of Music provides musical training through: music history, literature, theory and music appreciation courses and applied music and performance groups are readily available. Serving Elmhurst College in the areas of re- curiting and development is a major concern of the Department of Music. Through spon- sorship of clinics, contests, festivals and work- shops, the Department of Music provides many situations which bring large numbers of high school students and their parents to campus. Through off-campus appearances by its per- forming groups the Department of Music also contacts potential students and patrons in their home areas. The Department of Music contributes to the cultural climate and aesthe- tic experiences of the campus and surrounding community and maintains a strong and vital preparatory Music Department. 114 PHILOSOPHY The Department of Philosophy dealing in thought and theory provides courses for a major and a minor in philosophy and also pro- vides courses to fulfill the college ' s distribu- tion requirements. Recently two new courses were added to the department in the areas of ethical issues in organizational management and ethical issues in medicine and nursing. Majors in philosophy tend to pursue a second major in preparation for graduate school, in- cluding advanced work in specific areas such as law and theology. Philosophy majors are currently work ing in civil service careers, ed- ucation, and fields related to the social sciences. PHYSICS Elmhurst College Department of Physics has established a rigid, complimentary course of- fering schedule for physics majors; but the department also offers majors in 3-2 Engineer- ing and cooperates with the Department of Education for certification of students to teach physics on the secondary level. All physics majors complete at least four credit hours of independent study during one of their last three semesters. This period is intended to give the student a chance to draw together the material they have been studying and bring it to bear on a particular project. During this time, by working closely with one of the facul- ty members on a project, students learn how to focus ideas toward a single goal, and at the same time develop skills necessary for more independent work after graduation. During their senior year, the department works close- ly with the students to help them find employ- ment after graduation or to choose a graduate school. Dr. Gross, are you eagerily awaiting tiiose essay papers? Dr. Clark deep in thought. Dr. Sawyer and Dr. Swallow, Do you really understand that whatcha-ma- callit? 116 PHYSICAL EDUCATION Providing for the physical and recreational needs of all age students at Elmhurst College is one of the goals of the Department of Physical Education. Exciting and inter- esting activities which offer life-time involvement includ- ing ice skating, racquetball, skiing, canoeing, golf and tennis, have much appeal for the men and women-not the least of these is the non-traditional student. A bus- tling faculty of six persons carefully juggles the gym class program course for seventy-one majoring students and a varsity program of eight sports for men and four sports for the women. f » », . ' ' 4 ' 117 PRE-SCHOOL The Pre-School Center is a service which pro- vides a stimulating environment for children of Elmhurst College students, faculty and staff while they are involved in College activities. In an informal atmosphere the Pre-School pro- vides an oportunity for children to work, play and share with others. Responsive staff help the children have a happy experience. Having a school of their own, making new friends, the children will learn to accept themselves as indi- viduals, developing independence, a sensitivity toward others and a sense of fair play. For stu- dents studying child development, the Pre- School provides an opportunity to interact with children, sharing experiences with them while they are helping to care for them. PSYCHOLOGY The versatile Department of Psychology offers much knowledge to the Elmhurst College stu- dent in both scholarship and relevance. Psy- chology-the study of human behavior and ex- perience-is approached by the department in an enthusiastic manner to stimulate the imag- ination of the student. The Department of Psy- chology contributes to the program of other departments by offering courses that provide important psychological foundations for under- standing human behavior that are relevant to the preparation of teachers, nurses, social workers, speech therapists and other profes- sional and business persons. To provide a flex- ible and rigorous program for psychology majors the department prepares them for graduate study in the various fields of psy- chology. The Department has a variety of field experiences and practium opportunities offer- ing on-site involvement in community mental health and other service organizations, oppor- tunities for independent study and facilities tor laboratory research. NURSING Elmhurst College baccalaureate nursing pro- gram is accredited by the National Accrediting Organization for Nursing Education and pre- pares graduates to take licensure examination for registered nurses. Dr. Wilson, Dr. Tracy, Dr. Siegel, Ms. Moore, Dr. Holbrook, chairpersons. 120 i THEOLOGY AND RELIGION Dr. Limper, Dr. Goetz, Dr. Schmiechen, Dr. Barry. Rev.

Special interim courses in public adminis- tration provides direct experience in local government as a supplement to classroom ex- perience. Offering a variety of courses in the various subdisciplines involved is one goal of the Department of Political Science. These in- clude American Government, Comparative Government, Political Theory, Public Adminis- tration, International Politics, Political Parties, Constitutional Law and related courses. The Department of Political Science is proud to participate in the Washington Semester Plan of the American University, Washington, D.C. The College nominates a number of students to work in Washington on special projects during each spring semester. Elmhurst College students have the opportunity to attend seminars and meet leaders from all branches of government. Recently, urban and international programs have been added to the department of Political Science ' s curriculum. URBAN STUDIES The Urban Studies curriculum is designed to provide the student with an interdisciplinary, ca- reer—focused major. An integral part of the pro- gram is the use of the Greater Chicagoland Area as a laboratory for study. Field trips, guest speakers and practical experiences are com- bined with classroom instruction and research projects to provide the student with a complete learning experience. The student is encouraged to develope a major which meets his or her needs and specific interest. Major curriculum of the Department of Urban studies involves course offerings dealing with Metropolitan Gov- ernment and Politics, Urban History (dealing with the development of cities). Urban Plan- ning, and Examination of the Suburbs and Field Work. Many Urban Studies majors choose to supplement the Urban Studies Courses with courses from departments such as: Geography, Political Science, and Sociology. Dr. Schmidt, chairperson of the Political Science Department. Dr. Lindberg, Where is your bike? 122 Offering the Elmhurst College student a wide range of in- tellectual and career opportunities is the main goal of the Department of Sociology. In addition to the traditional pur- suits of graduate study in Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work, the field of Sociology leads itself as preparation for ca- reers in public administration, government, law, social service administration and public relations. All courses in Sociology, except for those in Social Work, fulfill one of the Social Science distributive requirements.

Admissions counselors explain the academic and extracurricular programs available at the College to prospective freshman and transfer students to the Day Session and to prospective Evening Session students. The Admissions staff visits high schools, churches. College Day and Night programs and College Fairs hoping to meet and talk with pro- spective students and their parents about Elm- hurst College. The Financial Aid Office coordinates the finan- cial aid program for new and currently enrolled students. The Office also supervises the College Work Study Program and The Emergency Loan Fund for Elmhurst College students. The Admissions Office also sponsors the Stu- dent Host program. This program ' s success de- pends on the support of currently enrolled stu- dents who give tours and host overnights for prospective students. The Pre-School Center, also supervised by the Admissions Office, offers child care services to the Elmhurst College community. Kris Weber 128 129 INTERIM, ADVISING AND SCHEDULING Mrs. Maisey L.

Mrs. Virginia Dyke, Secretary to Mrs. Lake takes time out for a picture. 130 131 Rev. McCurdy, Chaplain of Elmhurst College is much more than just the coordinator of Wor- ship Life on campus. Counseling is a major part of Rev. McCurdy ' s services to the College; he counsels a group for women concerns, meets periodically with the nurses group, counsels the Al-Anon (a club for family members and friends of alcholics), meets in conferences with the Elmhurst Hospital Chaplain regularly, and is the faculty co-chairperson of the Religious Life Committee. Teaching on theology day class per semester, Rev. McCurdy comments, " I like teaching; the class is very responsive. " Rev. McCurdy is the coordinator and some- times leader of the weekly Tuesday morning Worship Service and once a month evening Worship Service at the campus. Rev. McCurdy notices less people are interested in religion but states, " It is because of a change in the character of the campus. " He hopes " people could in general get together as people, and become less fragmented. Too many people now belong to small groups. " Rev. McCurdy " likes being here at Elmhurst College, but hopes one thing for the campus: to work more toward a community of people which share common values, at least a willingness to discuss values. " Father Leonardo Mateo, Roman Catholic Chaplain, has served part-time at Elmhurst College for two years. Father Mateo takes care of visitations, and holds office hours. DEAN OF THE COLLEGE Dr. Schmiechen, Dean of the College works with all department ' s of the College, the cam- pus library and deals with decisions on cur- riculum. Presently, Dr. Schmiechen is trying to develop a program in BA of Liberal Studies for the students of Elmhurst Weekend College. Working in the past year to improve Data Pro- cessing relating to the Records Office and Re- gistration has also been a top priority of the Dean. Dr. Schmiechen has begun a period re- view of each department of the College con- cerning faculty, facilities, and curriculum pro- gram. The Dean also receives information on department ' s through his two main councils, which are the Faculty Council and the Academic Council. A recent problem raised by students con- cerning the teacher evaluation procedures used by the College has come to the Dean ' s attention. Dr. Schmiechen in response has developed a departmental evaluation system of each individual teacher. Most department ' s of the campus choose to use a written evalu- ation form available for student opinion. There is also teacher evaluation through the pro- cesses of peer evaluation and a general dis- cussion of methods and content of teaching. Dr. Schmiechen also teaches one theology course a term. Hi 134 135 136 OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT President Frick has been working very closely with the FoPA ard Elmhurst Fund Drive and currently has been able to raise 1.8 million dollars. Being involved in the planning of Old Main ' s renovation, President Frick has earned $800,000 tor this project from the Forward Elm- hurst Fund Drive. Working closely with the total renovation of Irion FHall for the Depart- ment of Music and Speech Pathology, Presi- dent Frick is more than consumed in work. Through formal and informal communications with students ' , faculty, and administrative offices. President Frick feels very involved and con- cerned in the everyday life of Elmhurst Col- lege. A once a month general sharing of idea ' s between students and President Frick is achi- eved through the Presidents ' Breakfast ' s. President Frick also receives faculty imput by means of a one hour coffee haus twice a month. On the President council. President Frick has the opportunity to receive a cross campus selection of idea ' s; five staff members work directly on the President ' s Council, they are Dean of Students, Dean of the College, Mr. Pinch, Mr. Wiess, and the Director of Development. 137 HEALTH SERVICE Resident or Commuter-Guy or Gal-almost everyone gets sick sometime-gets up tight or cuts a finger or twists an ankle. It ' s good to know that if anything goes wrong medical help is available. Student Health Service is made up of people-a doctor, two nurses and a secre- tary-who are dedicated to one objective: helping students. 138 Mrs. Haik, R.N. PLACEMENT The Placement Office is a resource which offers all students the opportunity to explore their interests, abilities, aptitudes and how they relate to a future career which will be meaningful and satisfying. The Placement Office assists students with part-time and summer employment, sponsors a Field Experience program which is designed to complement " in class " learning with a brief educational exposure to a job which is related to the student ' s academic major. The Placement library contains career infor- mation, graduate school catalogs an d all gradu- ate school examination applications. Assistance is given to seniors for obtaining employment after graduation; offers them the opportunity to interview on campus with the many businesses which visit the College; offers seminars on resume ' writing and inter- viewing. Credentials are compiled for use in applying to graduate school, teaching, nursing and all other employment. It provides a comprehensive career advisory service for all students, as well as alumni who wish to avail themselves of the services. Mrs. Hoogesteger 139 COUNSELING The Counseling Service Center is available to the Elmhurst College day students specializing in helping v ith personal problems, and testing vocational or academic study skills. It is a place that shows interest and concern in the student; there is no charge. Dr. Barry, Coordinator of the Counselor Ser- vices, works with probation cases and also teaches one theology course a term. D A T A P R O C E S s I N G 140 CENTER FOR SPECIAL PROGRAMS For most campus students the Center For Spe- cial Programs is a rather ambiguous component of the College. Although some traditional- aged students do enroll in Center credit and non credit offerings, most students comprise the non traditional aged populace-twenty-two years of age and older. Basically The Center For Special Programs is a unit of the College that is primarily responsible for the development and implementation of programs for adult constituencies. Presently The Center relates to its constituencies-com- munity, business, professionals, and the indi- vidual-through the seven following programs: Management Seminar Program, In-House Training Program, Open Enrollement (Com- munity Program), Electrom Micros copy Pro- gram, Certificate in Management Program, Ex- tension Credit Program, and Special Projects Program. During the past year. The Center enrolled approximately 1700 students in its programs. Pioneering efforts have included the Center ' s two Latino Bilingual programs where hispanic students are earning either an interdisciplinary degree in Psychology and sociology or a degree in general business administration. Both programs are located in Chicago, Illinois. The Center looks forward to its continued pro- gramming for adults but at the same time in- vites campus students to enroll in any one of its many programs. 141 LIBRARY 142 Mrs. Jeanne Spencer Mrs. lackie Sherman MAINTENANCE Row I: Steve Balash, Waren Bremer, Tim Gushing, Walter Bishop Custodial Supervisor, Wilbur Brown, Lee Jackson, Greg Dvorak, Paul Beronek, Row 2: Ed HagI, Peter Svwed, Arnal Ricci, Otto Saldat, Frank Hill, Roy Wiemerslage, Robert Moen, John Tiedemkan, Frank Bakes, Peter Kocol, Ed Seeman, John Gastaldo, Martin Blank, FHerry Munn, Ron Gappon, Roy Johnson director of Physical Plant.

Hearts- ' ; field or Second City? Or will y ou remember Irion Hall, ' . . Old Main and the Gym being renovated, or the football ' team ' s winning record or the baby found on campus one May morning? Will you even remember such occur- rences twenty years from now? It is my hope that this book will help you to remember. As I sit in front of my typewriter, thousands of memories dance in my brain. Some are good, some are bad, but they happened just the same. They happened in a year that was very hectic and very busy and probably passed all too quickly. I am hoping that all of you will stop and reflect just a moment on all that happened to each of you individually in the year of 1977-78. And as you pause I would ask that you spend a moment in silence in rememberance of Dr. Charles Gilbert, a fine human being and teacher, who died las t Spring. I ask each one of you, even if you did not know the man, to please try to make life for yourselves and those you came in contact with a little better, for his sake and the sake of the living. Life is too short to be spent in bickering, arguing, and politicking. I ' ve known too much of that here and it ' s getting us nowhere. I ' ll end here with the hope that each and every one of you that reads this book will derive enjoyment out of it. Erich Adickes ' 78 Elms, Editor
