Pete Poulos Paul Yoh 97 Juniors (joon ' yars), n. Once one has attained the status of a junior, one has also achieved the prestige of being called an upperclassman. For some, this means that there is only one more year left after this; however, for others, they may be planning to stay for an additional two years. Technically, a junior is a student who has completed between sixteen and twenty-three courses. It ' s all down hill now!

Once one has at- tained the standing of a senior, one is ready to take that big step to the outside world. To be a senior, a student must have completed twen- ty-four courses. Senior year has many things to look forward to. The main event of the year is gradu- ation. Graduation is what everyone looks forward to. However, before graduation, there is the party that the E.C. sponsors for only graduat- ing seniors. This is the time that seniors can reminisce about good times.

Gradu- ation is a time when all seniors are rewarded for their hard work of four or more years of schooling. In addition to the commencement and baccalau- reate services, seniors can look forward to the annual Senior Party and other personal social events. For some people, edu- cation in a college atmosphere has ended, others however will go on to graduate school.

It is with regret that my tenure as the Elms Yearbook Editor-in-Chief must come to an end. Prior to undertaking this responsibility, I had no idea of the magnitude of this project and the difficulty in producing a book consisting of two years ' activities here at Elmhurst College. Thus, this year ' s special addition required an enormous amount of editing and review causing a delay in its publication. It was important to our staff that as many facets of Elmhurst College be represented in this special edi- tion. However, space and time finally gave out and a few groups were left unmentioned. We are very sor- ry for this editorial decision and hope no one is especially offended. The task of completing this project would not have been possible without the help of the following peo- ple and organizations: Phyllis Iovino, Bruce Hill, Lola French, Herb Shenkin, Kay Weideman, Steve Brockway, Kimberly Hayes, the Development and Public Relations Office, the Leader, the Dean of Students Office, the Elms staff, and all the other organizations on campus which supplied the Elms with the information and pictures necessary in com- pleting the yearbook. Our special edition Elms Yearbook is dedicated in providing its readers with good memories for years to come. Again, thanks to everyone who helped with this book.
