The day they had prepared for had come — they were off to college. Upon their arrival, there were many smiling faces of orientation leaders willing to make this transition as smooth as possible. There was so much to do — unpacking had to be done — meetings had to be at- tended — and friends had to be met. Elmhurst College opened its arms to welcome its new students with a convocation. New students and their family were greeted by trustees, ad- ministrators, faculty, and staff. This was just the start of a four day program. The time arrived for the student to say good-bye to the family. The meetings were over for the day, it was time for fun and games. A barbe- que, dancing, twister, and a boat ride on Lake Michigan were a few of the scheduled events. The students took this time to meet their fellow students, to explore the campus, and to relax and prepare themselves for the next three days. The following days were filled with placement tests, advisor meetings, student group meetings, and class scheduling. By now the new students were feeling confident and secure in their new home. Orientation ended on a note of good-luck, it was time for classes to start. The orientation process laid a foundation on which the students ' following years were built upon. The years go by fast and they pass from orientation to graduation. — Karen Ruesch Sharon Shipinski helps direct Kale PioUer to ihe slide presen- tation in the Science Center.

" As midterms snuck up on students. Homecoming arrived with the traditional E.G. spirit. The week long celebration in- cluded scenes from Fantastics, a mesmerizing hypnotist named Diana Barrar, a performance by the Jazz Band, a rained-in pep rally and a Friday night dance featuring Geneva. Prior to the pep rally, the judging of the Homecoming floats took place. Niehbur Hall captured first place while Squires were a close second. The cafeteria served shrimp as people anxiously awaited the start of the pep rally. Dean Gunningham led the crowd in the E.G. Fight Song. The pro- gram progressed and the time had come to announce the Homecoming court. The Freshmen representatives were Ellen Leahy and Jim Vainisi, the Sophomore representatives were Laura lovino and Sean McGinnis, and the Junior representatives were Lynda Dybala and Mike Wagner. The reigning King and Queen of the 1985 Homecoming were Steve Flanagan and Regina Stella. The week culminated in E.G. ' s 38-21 victory over Gar- thage Gollege. During the game, students and alumni en- joyed the ongoing tailgating party and then made their way to the dinner dance. 15 Dancing wildly, Chris Ratliff and Joan Sundberg move to ihe sounds of Elite Entertainment.

As the fans enjoyed Elmhurst College ' s victory over Carthage College, the final preparations were being finished in the banquet hall of the Hamilton Hotel. A record setting crowd of over six hundred attended the dinner dance. The evening began with students and alumni meeting for cocktails. A dinner of cream of basil soup, salad, chicken marco polo and a delectable amaretto cheesecake was served. The program, including the Alumni Merit Awards, followed the dinner. Elite Entertainment and the college Jazz Band supplied the music for the dance. The couples danced on the crowded fioor until one A.M. when the evening concluded. — Lynda Dybala Christ Floros On llie saxophone. Pa in Kib- bons helps entertain the crowd with " The Heat is On.

The production of " Angels Fall " introduced the Artist in Residence program to the Mill Theater. The entire production was an actor ' s workshop for the cast members, conducted by professional actor and acting teacher, Kevin Doolan. Doolan had appeared in one hundred and thirty stage productions during his career, as well as numerous film roles in both commercial and industrial productions. As a part of the Artist in Residence program, Doolan also presented a workshop entitled " A Survival Course for Actors, " which discussed methods for actors to market their skills. The cast of five students and Doolan portrayed a group of people stranded in an old mission in the New Mexico desert after a nuclear accident. Each character had to come to grips with his or her past in the light of possibly not having a future. The script provided an ex- cellent opportunity to explore the depths of ensemble acting and proved to be a real growth ex- perience for all involved. The conflict between what Don Tabaha wants to do and what he knows he should do over- whelms him. £ Unable lo continue their travels, the stranded couples share something of themselves.

Bale Salvatore (Zappy) Zappala Mark Mavetz Father William Doherty Kevin M. Doolan Director, Paul R. Zeissler Challenge Accepted Football Entering into the 1985 football campaign, the E.G. Bluejays adopted the motto " Accept the Challenge " to be the hallmark of their season. These words of inspiration aided the team members to surpass their predicted fourth place finish in conference play en route to a 7-2 record which qualified the Jays for second place in the conference standings. The season opener pitted the Jays against an im- proved Illinois Benedictine team. The Bluejays were able to overcome a case of the first game jit- ters as they rallied to defeat the Eagles 24-17. The home opener matched E.G. against North Park. An overall defensive effort, including a climactic fourth quarter goal line stand, helped the Jays to preserve a 13-6 victory. Following this game, E.G. played its most emotional football game of the season against Garroll Gollege. Losing 28-7 in the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Jays ' offense exploded with a twenty-eight point performance to pull out a 35-28 win. Perhaps a bit drained by their last feat, Wheaton Gollege dominated the Bluejays by a score of 49- 25. In the following week ' s contest, the Jays were able to hold off a stubborn Illinois Wesleyan team in Normal, as the Jays captured a 23-20 decision. Returning home for Homecoming, the Jays faced Garthage Gollege. A powerful offensive display aid- ed in defeating the Redmen 38-21. Travelling down to Decatur, to confront the Big Blue of Miilikin, the Jays played their most dominating game of the year as a total team effort enabled the Bluejays to upset Miilikin 20-17. Journeying back to Langhorst Field for the final home game, the Jays used a steady offense and a tight defense to surpass their arch rivals from North Gentral by a score of 19-7. The final game of the season pitted the Jays against nationally ranked Augustana Gollege. With a victory, the Bluejays would have tied the Vikings for a first place position in conference play. Any hopes of a conference title were erased as the Vikings com- pletely dominated E.G. en route to a 35-0 victory. Through following their motto, a number of Jays received post-season honors. The Bluejays placed Bob Sanfilippo as a First Team All-Gonference performer. Named to the Second Team were Jim Dooley, Mark Klutcharch. Jim Runavich and Ghris Stevens.

Lastly Sanfilippo was named as a selection to the Third Team Pizza Hut All-American Squad. The E.G. Jays indeed had a memorable and rewarding season as they were able to " Accept the Challenge " that was laid before them. — Steve Flanagan Worn out after a hard fought defeat, Steve f ' lanagan returns to the Inrker room. % © %L 1$ ,■--1 n ' rt fTZ -0 E.G. defenders nail their Carthage opponent.

To start a brand new season — if we dared. We all met at the gym, it was about eight. Coach Walton was waiting, no one was late! We were all introduced — it was kind of fun — Then Walton started talking and the joking was done. Coach explained the program, everything we ' d have to do — Offense, defense and other plays — but condition ing too! We would have to sprint and run, mile after mile. We all frowned and groaned but Coach just gave us a smile. Two weeks of triples were on the road ahead. By September 1st, we were all half dead; Until a brand new face appeared at the door. Little Jaye Flood who wanted us to run even more! Coach introduced us to Jaye, because she was new. We looked down at her and said hi — she ' s only five feet two. Then Coach said get running and you better be quick! Three seniors, ten sophomores and a freshman from Reddick!! The season started slowly for this selected few. Some of the starters, but a number of others too, Were plagued with injuries, some kind of queer — A knee, a pelvis, a heart — was the end really near? When school began, practice was then moved t o four. Triples were over, but when we walked thru the gym door; The two hours ahead always dragged on forever, Coach Walton and Jaye worked us harder than ever! We looked forward to games. So we could finally put our skills to use. Our opponents didn ' t like seeing us though. We always gave them lots of abuse. North Central and Wheaton, just to name a few; Were some of the teams we left black and blue — But then there were also some games that weren ' t as much fun. We were all wondering when those games would be done. The season also offered some trips out of state. But the one to Colorado was for what we couldn ' t wait. We arrived in the Springs, it was so nice; But Coach Walton wouldn ' t let us go skiing, or skate on the ice. We also went to the Air Force Academy, And that ' s where we placed our bets. Not on who would win the game, But who could pick up the cutest Cadets! We returned home from the trip, And the season went by pretty fast. We won Conference and then moved on to the Regionals — At last!!! Emotions run high for NataHe Ganser, Lori Farrey and Carmi Frankovich after winning the national title. Sue Birdsey and Melanie Hollander synchronize their defense to block a Juniata shot. We met Calvin, and beat them in three. Our next opponent was the dreaded IBC. That match was a lot of fun — We beat them three games to one. We then found out Final Four would be in our gym — And all our fans were hoping we could win. Juniata was the first team we met. That was a match they were soon willing to forget! We also ended up beating them in three — And now the finals was what everyone waited to see. A whole season of practice was all we could remember — And now it all boiled down to the 14th of December. Laverne was the opponent on the other side of the net. A team thus far we had never yet met. But after the match was over and the dust had cleared. We had beaten Laverne in three, the one thing they had feared. Coach Walton then went up and accepted our trophy, second to none, Elmh urst College was again number one. We couldn ' t have done it, though. Without all of the support and hope; Without our parents, friends and fans. We wouldn ' t have been able to cope. Then there ' s Coach Walton and Jaye, Who spend lots of time with us everyday; Without all of your work and dedication. On December 14th, we would have started Christmas vacation. So thanks to everyone, whose faith Throughout the season didn ' t stop; Thanks to you, Elmhurst College ended up on top!! — Therese Dorigan The 1985 NCAA Division III Volleyball Champions. Therese Dorigan serves her way to a place on the First Team, All-Conference. Unfulfilled Hopes j H Women s Tennis The tennis team " had a disappointing fourth place finish in the conference tour- nament, " said Coach Hanke. " I unders- tand the mishap in number two doubles could not be helped, and more or less it sealed our destiny. " Because of the mishap. North Park edged out E.G. to capture sole possession of third place. The weather did not cooperate throughout the season, so that when the team played, it was the exception and not the rule. Despite this lack of practice, Hanke said, " I was pleased with our season considering the difficult schedule. Nine wins and six losses is a very creditable record. " " I was especially pleased with number one singles Karin Fox (12-6), number two singles Lisa Pienionte (13-5), number three singles Kathy Kozurek (11-7) and Deb Johnson ' s 15-3 record at number four singles. " Coach Hanke was impressed with the play of first year players Deb Faber and Sally Misiora. He felt they improved each week and had high hopes for them next year. — Debbie Johnson i f Shari Hoffman exhibits good form as stie drives home her firsl Number two singles player, Lisa Piemonte, begins the wind up for a big play.

The cross country team competed this year with an inexperienced squad. Although the team had only one senior, it still had bright trioments. At the Loyola Invitational, Elmhurst battled some of the top Division I and II teams. Mike Berg placed in the top fifty in the men ' s division as did Chris Nielsen in the women ' s contest. Senior Lou Caffero came off injured reserve and joined the team at the Judson Invitational, where the men ' s team finish- ed fifth. In the women ' s division, Vilma Wood completed the course in fourth place while Cindy Schmeckpeper cap- tured seventh. Finally, in the last meet for the expir- ing Chicago Metro Conference, the squad placed every runner in the top thirty, with Niel sen placing thirteenth and Wood run- ning fifteenth. The woinen finished fourth in the conference. The men ' s team competed in the CCIW, the toughest Division III con- ference in the country. Berg was again the top runner for the Bluejays as he ran to capture twenty-sixth place. Mike Clock, Caffero and Lee Daniels also toured the course in less than thirty minutes. Both squads wound up their seasons at the Regional Championship at Credit Island, Iowa. The women finished twelfth in the team standings, led by Wood and Nielsen with Fran DeFrancesco, Tammy Chidester, and Cathy Hyland close behind. The men finished in sixteenth place, with Berg in the lead. Every E.C. harrier broke thirty tninutes on the course. Mike Berg was the men ' s MVP while Chris Nielsen won that title among the women.

Freshmen Freshman year was the lime to let high school friends pass into the shadows of the past and let new ones take their place. It really bothered me at first, but it was for the best. I quickly learned things about E.G. Some I liked; others bemused me; others made me think, " What a crazy place! " ; while still others upset me. I was impressed by professors like Fodor, Hatmaker, Thoma and others who took time to help or just talk. Did they know how much they were ap- preciated by us freshmen? Many times I was perplexed as to how we freshmen were supposed to fit in at Elmhurst. I wanted to belong and be one of the group, but I soon discovered that it worked much better when I didn ' t TRY to fit, but just let it happen. The memories are there: running out in the middle of the night, cold, dressed for sleep, to " Rack Out " games in the Mall; the long bus rides with the Choir when " Out to Lunch " became a coveted title; encounters with all the other people confronting the ever-popular " All Nighter. " And perhaps the greatest lesson learned as freshmen: not to waste all the op- portunities to get involved and to interact that were out there just waiting for us. — Camille Geisler Audra Palumtjo t etrays some nervousness al the opening Orientation program.

The studios provided space for drawing, painting, photography, print- making, sculpture, art education, art history, critiques, discussion and advising. Courses in these areas, plus those in art history, provided the art student with a broad background in basic skills and creative sensitivity. Beyond a core of basic requirements, the stu- dent was free to write his her own program of individual study which could include various In- terim offerings such as a Travel-Study course to Spain and France. Department graduates worked in many fields: theater and costume design, illustration, advertising, printing, televi- sion, teaching, marketing, and art therapy. In 1986, the Department graduated its largest number of majors in many years. It also began work on a color darkroom facility which would make it one of the few art departments in the area to offer a color photography program. In addition, plans were begun to create a com- puter graphic animation art major when the new computer technology building was completed. — Mr. Richard Paulsen Seniors proudly display the results of four years of training during the Student Art Show.

The faculty of the Department of Music was devoted to sei ' ing students contemplating careers in the music field and students wishing to participate in music performance organiza- tions. The performing organizations at Elmhurst College included the College Choir, Choral Union, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Symphony Orchestra and chamber ensembles. From the Music Department, students pursued careers in music education, private instruction, church music, and music-related business careers such as publishing, management, sales and recording. — Dr. Paul Westermeyer (top) In Dr. Westermeyer ' s course on church music, Bruce Cuscaden has found that it ' s better to volunteer an answer than wait to be called on.

It offered core courses designed to provide students with a broad base of knowledge as well as more specialized courses enabling students to develop their interest and professional competence. The Center also provided a diversity of op- portunity for business executives and institutional administrators to interact with students through internship programs, personal appearances in classes, seminars, field trips and in- dependent study. In addition, the Center, in cooperation with other departments of the college, provided basic knowledge of administration and economics for majors of other disciplines through a variety of interdepartmental programs. The program of study in the Center for Business and Economics sought to provide a broad education preparing the student for responsible citizenship and leadership roles in business and society. This implied the development of basic knowledge and skills that were widely transferable and that were applicable throughout a lifetime. In addition to mastery of the theoretical foundations of business, students were expected to develop skills in communication, the understanding of people and the ability to work with them effectively. Students also were ex- pected to develop competency in critical analysis, ability to concentrate on the job at hand and the ability and desire to continue learning both on and off the job. Emphasis was placed on developing within the student the means to form sound value judgments and to demonstrate social responsibility. — Dr. Joseph Heiney Hospital administralion raises a management question that Mr. Jacobs attempts to answer.

It Ain ' t Mom ' s Cooking For many students, college meant the first long-term separation from the warm familiarity of family, hearth and home. One then experienced abnormal hours, drinking binges, stimulating classes and even- tually the Dreaded Cafeteria. To some the food appeared quite edible and resembled something better than Mom ' s Cooking, but for the majority of students, no one ' s cooking tasted like Mom ' s. Visions of medium rare roast beef, steaming fresh cut green beans, a tossed salad topped with croutons, creamy mashed potatoes with a thick lumpy beef gravy and for dessert, warm peach cobbler, could still be tasted at home. And now reality hits. BANG! The crashing of trays could be heard as one approached the cafeteria line. As the line meandered slowly, people asked inquisitively, " What is that? " The help, led by ' Jeff the Chef, ' happily scooped up the mystery meat, the RDA vegetables swimming in a yellow substance and instant potatoes, with pockets of sawdust-like clumps. All of this is placed on white plates. Many passed up this fine cuisine and ordered a double cheeseburger. Others skipped right to the ice cream. Another option existed — pass up the prepared meal and order a delicious Domino ' s pizza. Yum! Although the cafeteria food wasn ' t the greatest, the staff often overcompensated by their large smiles. But I would rather see Mom smiling over a hot stove anytime! Lunch buddies chow down on fast food, cafeteria-style. Fortunately for these diners, neatness does not count. 40 " Let ' s let Jodie try il.

Monsters of the Midway . . . Papa Bear . . . Sweetness . . . The Black ' n ' Blues Brothers ... A Punk Rock QB . . . Danimal . . . Woof, Woof, Woof! . . . The Fridge. The cast of characters exhibited an ex- traordinary year for Chicago fans. From the Bears opening game comeback against Tampa Bay to back-to-back playoff shutouts (an NFL first!) to the Super Bowl XX championship, the Bears were spec- tacular fun. The cast of characters included William Perry, nick-named the Refrigerator due to his 307-pound frame, a first round draft choice from Clemson. The defensive coordinator. Buddy Ryan, saw him as an overweight and disappointing rookie. The American people saw him block for a touchdown, bull for a score on his own against the 49ers and go in motion to catch a TD pass. His ultimate move was his attempt to hoist Walter .Payton in his huge arms and carry him over the goal line despite the rule that forbids such tactics. Jim McMahon, the perpetually injured quarterback, held his team ' s offense together. He proved this against the Vikings when he entered the game late due to an earlier game injury and scored three TD passes for a comeback 33-24 victory. That game saw quite a few head butts after scoring. His defiance of authority cost him a $5,000 penal- ty for advertising " Adidas " on a headband and later " Rozelle " in protest. Walter Payton remained the leading ground gainer of all time and logged a record nine straight 100-yard running games this season. It warmed America ' s hearts to see him in the Super Bowl at last. Mike Ditka, hand chosen by George Halas, coached the Bears with passion. His outbursts on the sideline, his manner of dress and his frankness with the media found him making headlines as regularly as his players. The top rated defensive team shut out Dallas and Atlanta during the regular season. They held six straight opponents to under 100 yards rushing. The linebackers — Mike (Samurai) Singletary, Otis Wilson and Wilber Marshall — formed the best trio in the game. The defen- sive line, anchored by Dan Hampton and Richard Dent, terrorized op- ponents every weekend when the Bears lined up in Coach Ryan ' s complex ' 46 ' defense. Their bark equaled their bite and woof, woof, woof became the defense ' s trademark. The Bears played tough regardless of salary squabbles that cost them last year ' s All-Pro strong (above) Paylon on lop of " the Fridge " and the world, (center) Mike Ditka: Once a Bear, always a Bear, (left) Superflake McMahon flaunU his latest headband. safety, Todd Bell, and the starting right linebacker, Al Harris. The Bears thrashed and mauled opponents week after week. They ventured to San Francisco to play the 49ers, the Super Bowl champs who shut them out in last season ' s playoffs, and crushed them. A Dallas showdown humiliated the Cowboys, 44-0, the worst defeat in the history of the Dallas franchise. Then came the only defeat of the season. On Monday night football with millions of fans watching, the Bears lost to the Miami Dolphins, 38-24. After that game, the Bear defense held opponents to 13 consecutive touchdownless quarters. The Bears ended their regular season play 15-1. They advanced to the playoffs and shut out the N.Y. Giants, 21-0. They then whipped the L.A. Rams, 24-0, to take the National Conference championship. Twenty-three different Bears scored touchdowns this year and the most outlandish statistic was that ten of them were playing defense. The Super Bowl Shuffle, an outrageous brag and stomp recording for charity, came out and told of the Bear ' s goal. Other teams thought it was egotistical but the Bears let everyone know what was on their minds. It was hard to believe a Chicago sports team had advanced to a championship game. Chicago really had done it. The Bears faced the New England Patriots for Super Bowl XX in the Louisiana Super- dome. The Bears did the Super Bowl Stumble en route to their 46-10 i victory. They fumbled the ball, gave the Patriots a quick field goal, fell behind and Chicago hearts began to tremble. But all the Bears had to do was get the ball back and score. They scored again and again and 1 again. They went on to win by the biggest margin of victory in Super Bowl history. The Super Bowl slaughter found Chicago fans ready to party. Fans took over the city. Streets and bars overflowed with people. The city of ! Chicago was a winner. To congratulate the Super Bowl champions a ticker tape parade was held on Monday. Half a million fans packed the streets and climbed trees, roofs and the Picasso statue to better their glimpse of the buses carrying the team and the much coveted Vince Lombardi trophy. The parade began at Jackson and LaSaUe and end- ed at Daley Plaza, temporarily named Bear Plaza. The crowd, the -25° wind chill weather, and the wait for the parade to start were worth the memories the Bears gave us in the 1985-1986 season. 42 Laurie LaMonlagna works her way out of the human knot. Leadership Conference The annual January Leadership Conference was established to get student leaders from every student organization recognized by the Campus Life Council, including fraternities, sororities, honor societies, and clubs, an opportunity to develop their leadership skills and share their experiences with others on campus. The leader of the 1986 Conference was Dr. Arnie Bacigalupo, a group development and communications skills specialist, who alter- nately lectured, joked, encouraged and mediated lively discussions among the participants. Under his guidance, we discussed problem- solving, brainstorming and conflict management; we practiced the trust fall and primal scream; we learned the value of hugging a tree. — Joanne Kohlhaas (above) The Leadership Con- ference coordinator Dr. Bacigalupo stresses the impor- tance of conflict management.

Campus Life Council The Campus Life Council kicked off the year with several heated discussions. Topics ranged from consideration of the college budget to asbestos in the library. Also discussed was the tenure policy, admis- sions and retention, residence life policies, and the new computer center. For the tenth consecutive year, CLC planned and executed the campus Leadership Conference.

Union Board The Union Board was composed of the student and facul- ty chairpersons of such committees as Athletic Life, Black Affairs, Cultural Life, Recreational Life, Campus Ministry and Social Life; also three media committees comprised of the Elms (yearbook), the Leader (newspaper) and WRSE- FM radio. The Board was set up to provide the E. C. com- munity with a well-balanced program of events, both social and educational, for all students to enjoy. Among the traditional events sponsored by the commit- tees were the largest Homecoming dinner dance in College history, the Campus Ministry retreat, the trips to profes- sional sporting events and theater productions, and the in- tramural athletic program.

We started out the fall term by going off the air for a term while technical changes were being made to boost the station ' s power from ten watts to one hun- dred watts. In January, we went on the air at an increased wattage and listener requests reached new highs. However, technical and book- keeping problems resulted in our wattage decrease temporarily, back to ten watts. We had a first ever dance concert which bopped the Cafe like it ' s never been bopped before. We pulled in two hundred people from the college and community of Elmhurst. One of our biggest pushes this term was playing local music, especially college bands. We gave away a lot of tickets to hear bands playing at clubs in the area. — Marcia Schmid Botlonn Kow: Paul U Keitly, Nick Stavropoulos, Terri Crammich, Mark Knoebl.

Rec Life The Recreational Life Committee provid- ed a wide variety of off campus and non- traditional sporting activities for students from skiing or roller skating to watching the Bears or the Cubs. Recreational Life also sponsored trips to Great America and to the Ice Capades, along with many other ac- tivities which provided social and recrea- tional outlets for students to get away from the books or the campus for awhile and just relax and have a good time with friends. -Karen Papiernik 48 I Athletic Life I The intramural program started the year off with the ail-American favorite sport — football. Inspired by the 1 Chicago Bears, men and women slogged through the very muddy mall in pursuit of the elusive touchdown. As fall winds swept through the campus, the activities moved indoors. A night of fun and games was planned for November. Despite the stormy weather, the November Nighter started with a bang. Students jumped, hopped, and skipped the night away. Term 11 brought volleyball and basketball to the Physical Education Center. Eight teams battled ferociously for six weeks to be number one. As winter raged. Athletic Life moved to the Union building ' s Game Room for an eight-ball tournament. The snow melted. Winter months turned to Spring and the fun returned outside.

H Campus Ministry The Campus Ministry Committee kicked off its year with a fall retreat to Tower Hill Camp in Sawyer, Michigan. The theme of the retreat was " Beyond Career, " exploring our understanding of our life as a vocation. Throughout the year. Campus Ministry sponsored chapel services in addition to special Thanksgiving and Christmas services and early in Term II, Campus Ministry took an excursion to the Chicagoland Leadership Prayer Breakfast. Campus Ministry also focused its attentions on active witness to the continued existence of the apartheid political system in South Africa. The efforts included sponsoring a lecture by civil rights leader, Reverend Leon Sullivan, who authored the Sullivan Principles for foreign businesses operating in South Africa. Student Christian Fellowship, sponsored by Campus Ministry, gathered weekly in the Union for discussions on a variety of issues in- cluding fear, prayer, temptation and love. In addition to these lively discussions, seasoned veterans were produced in Bible Trivia, Bible Charades, Scruples and Trivial Pursuit. Ambitions were not limited to only the campus, but excursions to the Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant concerts took place as well. The Intervarsity Christian Fellowship was an international student organization dedicated to facilitating a closer fellowship among the followers of Christ. The E.

During the 1985-1986 season, the E. C. band hosted the College of St. Benedict and St. John ' s University Wind Ensemble from Minnesota, in a combined concert. We also commission- ed an arrangement of the Purcell Trumpet Sonata for E. C. trumpet teacher, Mr. Jeff Hickey. Student composer, Bryce Bachman, conducted the debut of a band work he wrote called " Overture Allegro.

The band toured Europe for two weeks over Spring Break, visiting London, Paris, Switzerland, Austria and Germany and playing concerts at each stop. The money for this trip was earned by the band, which played gigs twice a month during the year. The band played in the Union each semester and at Stooges, a bar in Elmhurst, in December. — Sam DeAngelo Forensics The 1985-86 Forensics team had an outstanding year.

ASPA informed interested students of current human resource prac- tices and explored career possibilities. Every month, each national ASPA member received " The Personnel Administrator " and other literature pertaining to human resources, from the national organization. In the first semester, ASPA invited several experienced personnel practitioners to speak, one of whom was Mr. Durward Wildman, Vice President of Personnel at Hinsdale Hospital. The spring semester ' s ac- tivities consisted of the members assembling a resume book and sending it to major companies.

For a college whose enrollment was a little over four thousand full-time and part-time students, this was quite a feat. These groups did not hold only an occasional meeting here or there. A meeting may have taken only an hour of a person ' s time. Instead they held fundraisers, took excursions, sponsored dances, organized Greek Week, initiated new members and won championships. Many of these organizations did a combination of these activities. This type of dedication needed determination on the members ' parts to make their organization special. All the organizations had an adviser, but it was the individual members that comprised the whole. Sure, occa- sionally there was a member who did not care, but it was the interested members who really shaped their club.

Each year had proven to be better and better for Coach Caruso. The team had lost five of their top players, but in their places new talent was discovered. Tom Newton, a transfer from Illinois Wesleyan, gave size to a rather small E.C. team. Troy Nelson and Dennis Hansen, both starters, each poured in twenty or more points per game. Paul O ' Reilly, Duke Chew, Pat Donahue and Kurt Fenton demonstrated their skills as four of the better guards in the CCIW Conference. With all this good ability, both on offense and defense, how did Elmhurst land in seventh place in their conference? Being one of the members of the team, I saw the pain and suffering. Some how the players were not able to pull all this talent together. Over the twenty- six games played, eighteen different starting line-ups were used. No one could pinpoint where the problem was coming from. Although there were many ugly periods of the season, there were some encouraging moments. Elmhurst beat North Central who was seventh ranked nationally, 62-61. The big revenge did not come until the last two games of the year. Against Carroll College, the Bluejays won an impressive victory over the team that embarrassed them at home, 83-72. The victory against Augustana was the way Elmhurst wanted to end the season. The team played as a team. For the first time, Elmhurst scored over one hundred points; the score was 108-94. — Clarence Simmons Troy Nelson lifts the ball with finesse over Augie defender.

In the final year of the Chicago Metro Conference, the Jays were Con- ference champions and placed third in NCAA Divi- sion III. With only eight team members, the team had to work closely together to prove that we were a quality team.

The talented team consisted mostly of freshmen and two juniors, and was cap- tained by seniors Tom Blechschmidt (22-10) and Steve " Beaver " Balmes (18-5). The team, although never wrestling with a full line-up, finished with a 7-9 dual meet record. The Jay grapplers also placed third in the Tiger Invitational and the Monon Bell Classic Team Tourna- ment. They finished up the season by placing fourth in the CCIW. The team ' s performance moved Coach Hanke ' s overall record to 207-147-7, making him the sixth most winning coach in Division III competition. At the end of the wrestling season Coach Hanke was named to the Illinois Wrestling Associa- tion Hall of Fame. — Chuck Canfield Bottom Row: Tim Lyons, Al Slepanek, Chuck Canfield, Charlie Jacob, Top Row: Steve Balmes, Tom Blechschmidt, Bill Guderley, Tony Kowalczyk, Al Hanke. Imhursl ' s Jazz Festival draws udenl performers from all ver the midwest. (center) The E. C. Jazz Band reveals its secret to success: " Think Jazz. " Since 1967 Elmhurst College has hosted the Mid-West College Jazz Festival with great success. The 1986 version was no exception to that rule. Bands, combos and vocalists came from all over Illinois and adjoitiing states to compete against each other. Each group was judged by our guest artists, among whom was Bobby Shue, returning to the Festival for the second time. The Festival offered an event that was a rare combina- tion of stimulating entertainment and educational enrichment. — Donna Clay student competitors put their heart and soul into the performances.

Decisions, decisions and even more decisions. Sophomore year was the time when it became necessary to make quite a few deci- sions. It was the time when I decided whether to spend more time partying or cracking the books at the library instead. By the end of the year, general distributive requirements had almost been com- pleted and advisers began to pressure me to choose a major — in what direction would this fine education lead me? And as to this education, who was going to continue paying for it? Did it mean giving up all the extra-curricular activities in order to hunt down a (real) job and actually work? Around mid-year, groups of close friends began to settle in and I was then able to relax and be myself more each day. Choosing morals and attitudes about life was a difficult procedure, but that was what college was all about — growing as a person, individually and with society. Every decision I made now would help later. When I look back at my sophomore year here, I will think about all the decisions I made that will affect my life. — Tanya Rand Keith Spale puts on a show for the crowd at the Greek games. 78 I 81 1 (below) Dr. Gan- choff assists his students with com- puter exercises.

Dr. Elmer Jacobs retired in June of 1985 after a decade of service. Dr. Ray- mond Albert took his place as Chairperson. This was the Year of Educational Reform since the Reform package of 169 items was passed by the Illinois State Legislature in June 1985. (Did Dr. Jacobs know something prior to retirement?) The new legislation had immediate im- pact upon admi ssions into education and coursework. Some measures of change were the new Department of Education testing of basic skills prior to admission into student teaching, the elevation of cumulative grade point average to 2.5, and the minimum ten week student teaching assignment. The rise in requirements did not discourage students however. The department saw the greatest increase in growth for a decade. Department members Dr. Wineberg, Dr. Hoover, Dr. Feldman, Ms. Heidinger and others witnessed a growth in class sizes and a renewed in- terest in education. The growth in education seemed to be in both quality and quantity. But the best news seemed to be the improving job market. Many of our graduates had contracts for teaching prior to the day of graduation. The time capsule in which we record 1985-1986 should read two words for the Education Department — pivotal year. — Dr. Raymond Albert Dr. Albert, in his first year as chairperson, relates his plans for changes in the department. (center left) Laura Travagllo marks the site of all the hard work that led to her diploma. IT The Illinois Nurses ' Association has said, " Health care today is changing. Today, we need someone who can help us manage our health care needs in the hospital, the home, the HMO, the school, the workplace, in long term care and in the community. Today we need a provider who can teach us how to stay physically and men- tally healthy, and how to prevent illness and disease. Today, we need access to specialty practitioners who can provide expert health care for individuals and their families. Today, more than ever, we need an advocate who can deliver quality, cost-effective care throughout all the stages of our lives. TODAY, WE NEED A NURSE. " This is the nurse we tried to educate at E.C.

Mr. Swords ()ays close attention to style and interpretation. Good writers. Responsive readers. Above all, careful thinkers. These were the goals of the English Department. They determined its program and measured its pleasure when graduates demonstrated their mastery of them. In 1986, the Department ' s curriculum included training in writing and in the appreciation of analysis of English and American Literature, with additional emphasis on the literature of Europe and the non-Western world. It looked forward to increased involvement in a coming year with other acaderriic areas in achieving its goals through a cooperative venture — Writing Across the Curriculum — to the end of even better writers and even more responsive readers and critical thinkers. — Mr. Robert Swords (center) The overhead permits Dr. Caso lo explain an upcom- ing term paper.

After years of neglect, Americans were beginning once again to take up the study of languages. The slate university system reinstituted a foreign language entrance re- quirement for all students. At KImhurst College, there were still no language requirements for all students; but for a school of its size, it had an unusually high number of majors in French, German and Spanish. An increasing number of students also chose to minor in one of the languages offered, most often preparing themselves for the many career opportunities in international business. In the lower levels instructors stressed the development of the use of language for communication. Students were taught to carry on conversa- tions about everyday life. At the upper levels, the foreign language pro- grams stressed the need for getting to know the history and culture of the foreign language area. Students frequently took trips abroad, studied at a foreign university or participated in an internship in another country. — Dr. Wallace Lagerwey Thompson gives an lialed interprelalion of a gn literature selection.

The Department of Psychology recognized and strove to meet the individual student ' s needs by encouraging a broad and systematic inquiry about one ' s self and others. The faculty worked to provide students ample opportunity to learn as individuals, to have close contact with their teachers and to develop their own orientation to behavior and human experience based upon the principles of psychology. Sociology, the scientific study of society, con- tributed to both the liberal and career education of the student. By fostering an awareness of the impact of social forces on individuals, it in- creased opportunities for freedom and respon- sibility. By providing systematic and verifiable knowledge about how societies are built and how theory works, it contributed to a variety of satisfying and fruitful careers. The background and interests of the sociology faculty reflected the diversity of con- tent, perspective and method within sociology itself. Thus students had the opportunity to choose from a variety of courses, topica travel-study, independent study and field work courses. They also experienced the pure and applied, the scientific and humanistic aspects of a multiiaceted discipline. — Dr. James Smith (center) Communicating Robert Hatch listens while through pictures.

Speech Members of the College were saddened by the retirement of Dr. Low at the end of 1985- 1986. Dr. Low, an Emeritus Professor, served the College for thirty-three years as a distinguished faculty member and as Depart- ment Chair. The major goal of the Speech Communica- tions Department was excellence in teaching. The objectives were to provide experiences that provide skills, develop more knowledge and help sustain high cultural standards. In the treatment of individuals with speech, language and hearing problems, the Department recognized the importance of treating the whole individual rather than just the problem. — Dr. Marjorie Goodban !op) Open discussions allow judenls to lislen and to speak iheir Inlerpersonal Com- lunications class.

Some errant individual had left the window open above it, blocking his escape. The production proved to be as much fun for the cast and crew as it was for the au- dience.

Alpha Phi Sorority was an enthusiastic group of collegiate women who strove for the highest ideals of sisterly love, womanhood and scholarship. Nationally founded in 1872, the tradition of excellence was carried on at Elmhurst College through the Zeta Xi chapter, founded in 1980. While we were a social sorority, the organization also had a strong scholarship program and supported its philanthropy — the Heart Association — through fundraising sales of baked goods and lollipops. In Alpha Phi, there were many opportunitites to develop leadership skills. All sisters participated in both a Rush committee and an organizational committee. We participated in a number of programs during the year, including visiting the Alpha Phi chapter at Eastern Illinois University, involvement in Greek Week activities, and organizing mixers within the sorority. Alpha Phi was the proud recipient of the 1986 Organization of the Year Award sponsored by the Campus Life Council. The award recognized the ability of an organization to contribute to E.C. and the Elmhurst community, participation in extracurricular activities, and scholarship. — Kristen Clark Mimlitz |i ii - |i ■ 96 Sigma Kappa sisters support the Greeks by performing in the ATO Lip Sync Contest.

Being a junior meant seriously thinking about what was going to happen after graduation — that may even have been a little scary. Friend- ships began to solidify in the junior year. Classwork became more difficult because I took all the 100 and 200 level classes and all that was left were the 300 and 400 level classes. I was given the noble rank of Upperclassman which meant I could apply for membership to the honor societies; then the lowly underclassmen longingly looked up to me. Juniorship may have meant the presidency or chairpersonship of a committee or organization that one had been a part of since freshman year. The best part about being a junior was look- ing forward to being a senior, and there was nothing better than that. — Sue Letnicky (above) Juniors Mike Wagner and Lynda Dybala win the Homecoming vole lo represent their class.

The student: faculty ratio was 16:1 and small classes benefitted all. However, the interaction between students and teachers did not end in the classroom. Teachers across the country taught classes but at E.G. teachers became involved with students. All the teachers advised students on their academic courses and some of these teachers went beyond this commitment. They made themselves available to work with students after classes, ad- vise clubs and organizations, coach teams and attend other school related activities. These extra ac- tivities demonstrated the dedication possessed by the faculty at Elmhurst Gollege.

(center) Striking a familiar pose. Dr. Lindberg ques- tions his class. (below) At the Forum on South Africa, Ms. Patton voices the views of the Political Science Department. From the beginning in 1969, the Urban Studies program defined " urban " in a broader context, really more " metropolitan, " seeing the interdependence of city and suburbs. The pro- gram of the ' 80 ' s continued to be relevant through classes in which students acquired basic theoretical knowledge, field trips where they gained practical experience, and study visits to other cities and countries giving students the opportunity to compare and con- trast various settings. — Dr. Andrew Prinz Political knowledge and understanding were essential in this interdependent and volatile world. Every aspect of life was affected by policies of government and the competing claims of interests and ideologies. Therefore, the goals of the Department of Political Science were as follows: 1. The liberal education of citizens in politics so that they would be effective and responsible members of local, national and world communities. 2. The clarification of concepts and the growth of knowledge through teaching and scholarship. 3. Preparation of students who were entering graduate education as the threshold for careers in the public realm as attorneys, judges, public managers, policy analysts, journaUsts and other vocations.

The History Department at Elmhurst was dedicated to making the study of history fun, interesting and valuable. Serving both a core of majors and those students satisfying a personal passion in the study of history, the Department offered a variety of courses from Ancient Greece and Rome to the most contemporary periods in U.S. and European History. Students could take almost any course in the Department without a prerequisite or background in the field. The Department faculty was especially interested in fostering the development of critical thinking, analysis, and a historical perspec- tive in students as well as a knowledge of course content. In addition to the period courses we offered, there were also those of a topical character such as The Nature of Revolution, The Role of Great Per- sonalities, and a seminar on the Vietnam War. History is the study of the most interesting aspects of life. — Dr. Walter Burdick (above) For Dr. Burdick, teaching history involves cons- tant questioning and critical analysis. H 1 s t o r y (lop) Geography instructor, Dr. Brehob, illustrates his point. Dr. Brehob ' s geomorphology course requires intense concentration. 117 Philosophy A Business and Ethics class gets a lesson from Dr. Clark and his friend. King Kong. What is truth? What is real? What is justice? Does God exist? Am I free? The word philosophy means the love of wisdom, and ever since philosophy began in ancient Greece these questions had been raised by philosophers and all other persons. The Philosophy Department offered a variety of courses which fulfilled the Humanities requirement. Such a requirement was impor- tant because a mark of a liberally educated person was to be able to think rationally about those questions which had been and continued to be the fundamental questions which human beings cisk. The depart- ment also offered the Logic course as one of the ways in which a stu- dent could fulfill part of the Language and Thought requirement. In recent years, the department added two other courses to its cur- riculum. Ethics and Organizational Management and Ethical Aspects of Health Care, which would relate more directly to students ' voca- tional interests. Most students did not really know what philosophy was about until they took the course to fulfill the college requirement. Sometimes students said, " If I had known philosophy was going to be this in- teresting, I would have taken it sooner! " — Dr. Robert Clark Christianity has exercised a profound influence upon western civilization. One cannot be liberally educated in the west without some disciplined knowledge of what Christianity is and how it has con- tributed to the formation of culture as well as it has been shaped by it. The Department of Theology and Religion offered its courses as an in- tegral part of every student ' s liberal education. The members of the department had in common an interest in reflecting upon the Bible as the criterion of Christian thinking. In light of this common interest, there were many ways to approach Christiani- ty — through a study of the church ' s book, through a study of the church ' s teachings, through a study of the church ' s behavior, through a study of the church ' s history and through a study of the church ' s in- teraction with other religious traditions. Every course considered both what Christianity is and how it stands in relation to one or another aspect of human culture. — Dr. Armin Limper (center) Dr. Crocco interprets Old Testament writing for an early morning class.

Physics The academic year was an exciting one in the Physics Department. On campus, the efforts of alumna Mary V. Frohne sparked renewed stu- dent interest and enthusiasm at the Accelerator Lab, culminating in our Cockroft-Walton ac- celerator being returned to operation. Our elec- tron microscopy facilities were also greatly enhanced by the gift of a Hitachi Transmission Electron Microscope. Off campus, we were happy to be bringing our Fermilab hyperon beta decay experiment to a very successful close. — Dr. Earl Swallow The Department offered a strong major in Math and in Computer Science which prepared the student for graduate level pro- grams or for a career in teaching or induOry. We cooperated with the Education Department to provide courses in the teaching of math at the secondary level. A joint major in conjunction with the Business Department in Management Sciences was also offered. Students were often employed in teaching and research on all levels and in working with physical, biological, social and behavioral scientists, as well as economists, business analysts, and computer scientists. — Dr. Donald Mason (above) Ken Hartman demon- strates the operation of a tesla coil.

The Physical Education Department endeavored to pro- vide a rationale for the physiological foundation for healthful living, an understanding for this foundation and the implica- tions of it for enjoying a full life. The Department taught sports skills that promote lifetime participation in these ac- tivities as well as other forms of exercise intended to condi- tion the body during the college years and thereafter for a satisfying and successful lifestyle. — Ms. Eileen Hackman (above left) John Liz .adro bench presses his limit in a dai- ly workout.

Chicago, the third largest city in the country, permitted Elmhurst College students to obtain not only a liberal arts education but a worldly education as well. To college students this could have taken on a couple of very different meanings. The first could have been described as a learning atmosphere. The politics of the city were con- stantly colorful with Mayor Harold Washington, Edward Vrdolyak and Jane Bryne in constant battle. The Art In- stitute, the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum and the Biograph Theater provided a cultural stomping ground for any day, but especially rainy days. To some, a playground would have described Chicago ' s influence over the far west suburbs. The ever-popular Rush Street buzzed with non-stop activity daily and sport arenas were abundant. Soldier Field, Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park all shed history on this marvelous town and provided one with worthwhile entertainment. To still others, Chicago presented a shopper ' s haven. The Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place and n umerous bouti- ques provided some of the best shopping. If a credit amount was unlimited, one could practically have charged oneself to death wtih all the buys. Whether playground or backyard, Chicago was anything one wanted it to be. For one to receive an education was tremendous but to live was much more exciting. The Prudential Building elec- trifies U.S.A. at Taste of Chicago. Common Goals I The Spring Honors Convocation took place in May to acknowledge individual and group achievement at the college. President Ivan Frick presided over the cerennony that recognized honor societies and honoraries, team and group achievement, general in- dividual achievement, individual scholastic achievement and excellence in teaching awards. Both students and faculty participated in this celebration accompanied by the choir. Sigma Theta Tau, the only national honor society for nursing and the second largest in- dividued member nursing organization in the world, bestowed the honor of membership on baccalaureate nursing students, graduate nurs- ing students and community nursing leaders who demonstrated superior scholarly achievements. Sigma Theta Tau acknowledged as its pur- poses: to recognize superior scholarship, to foster high professional standards, to encourage creative work, to strengthen commitment to the ideeds and purpose of nursing, and to recognize the development of leadership. The twenty members of Alpha Mu Gam- ma, the foreign language honorary, were in- itiated to help recognize achievement, en- courage a continuing interest in foreign languages, Hterature, and civilizations, and foster a sympathetic understanding of other peoples. The International Club ' s twenty-five members gathered to explore a common in- terest in other cultures and in travel and study abroad. Because the goals of Alpha Mu Gamma and the International Club were similar, both organizations jointly sponsored several ac- tivities, including a visit to the International Shopping Center in Westmont, the presentation of the foreign film, " El Norte, " a panel discus- sion by Elmhurst College Alumni on jobs re- quiring a foreign language, and fundraising through the sale of UNICEF cards and an Inter- national Bake Sale. In order to promote interest in and further the objectives of the biological sciences, the Beta Beta Beta Biology Honorary was founded in 1922 at Oklahoma City University. The Elmhurst College Chapter was established in 1965. This year, nine members were in- ducted into the society. In 1976, EUmhurst College chartered its chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta, a premedicine honor society, to encourage and recognize excellence in premedical scholarship, to stimulate an appreciation for the study of medicine, to promote cooperation between students and educators in developing a program of premedical education, and to use its knowledge for the benefit of health organiza- tions, charities and the community. Eight new members were inducted into AEA in the spring. Theta Alpha Phi Honorary started off its 1985-1986 sefison by inviting all interested students to its meetings, which caused an in- crease in interest and numbers. In October, we held a 0A i Alumni Reception after the open- ing night of " The Fantasticks " which united graduates of the Mill with current students. Theta Alpha Phi also sponsored the successful " The Best of the Mill 11 " orientation show, and an all-campus candy sale as a fundraiser, as well as sponsoring the Elmhurst College Speech Team at the Land of Lincoln Tournament. During Festival of Fools Greek Week, Theta Alpha Phi sponsored a " Dance at the Mill, " a four hour dance bash featuring our own record mixer D.J. Katherine Bus and pulsating lighting by Carol Johnstone. Our initiation ceremony was held at the theater on April sixth. New inductees were: Lisa Baggott, Lee Bale, Katherine Bus, Karin Davit, Thomas George, Carol Johnstone, David Lollar, Barbara Potemri, Catherine Rusch and Sean Sheridan. A 0A i tradition " Theater Evening " was held in May. We viewed slides and discussed the shows we as students would enjoy doing. 126 Honoraries Dr. Thoma acknowledges his receipt of the Excellence in Teaching Award.

Honoraries 127 I Common Goals II Omicron Delta Kappa, the leadership and scholarship honor society, had a stated pur- pose to recognize and encourage exemplary character and superior quality in scholarship and leadership. Nineteen students and three faculty members were initiated into the society in the spring based on character and specified eligibility in the five major phases of campus life, namely: scholarship; athletics; social, ser- vice and religious activities and campus govern- ment, journalism, speech and the mass media; and creative and performing arts. Founded in Elmhurst College as a local music honorary in 1981, Lambda Sigma Psi promoted a high level of academic achievement in music courses, encouraged participation and attendance at Elmhurst College music events, recognized outstanding academic achievement and excellence in music performance at Elmhurst College, and made available to members an opportunity for professional development. Pi Gamma Mu, the social sciences honorary, was founded to recognize students majoring in the social sciences (political science, history, urban studies, sociology and psychology) who maintained a 3.0 GPA. Our activities included some fundraising drives as well as lectures, debates, mock trials and films. The Elmhurst College Geographical Society, an educational organization which provided settings where students with a co j mon interest in geography could come togeth j, learn, and socialize, sponsored field trips j various locations of interest in the Chicago an [ including trips to historic windmills, the India [i Dunes, and the collection of geodes in Keoki], Iowa. Every other week there was also a film |- lecture presentation in a current topic |f geographical interest. Often the trips ajl presentations had a multidisciplinary approsji that included interests such as history, • vironmental planning and geology. j Gamma Theta Upsilon, the geograpjr honor society, had no new inductees during li; year. j Donna Clay breaks for pizza al the Pi Gamma Mu Debate Team picnic.

Honoraries 129 [ I Common Goals III The Psychology Club consisted of people-orienled individuals interested in the field of psychology. One of the major events of the year was a bake sale fundraiser for a chari- ty: the treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa, an in- curable eye disease that leads to blindness. Besides raising funds, the Club distributed li terature and information about the disease to those who contributed. Two of the off-campus events sponsored by the Psychology Club were a visit to the Peace Museum and a trip with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and the International Club to an ethnic restaurant. Many of the Psychology Club members were also members of the Psi Chi Na- tional Honor Society. The Psi Chi Honor Society recognized students with a declared major or minor in psychology who maintained a minimum of a B average in their psychology courses and graduated in the upper thirty-five percent of their class. Many of the Psi Chi members were also active in the Psychology Club. Delta Mu Delta, the Honor Society for Business Administration majors, recognized as its purposes: to promote higher scholarship in training for business and to reward the scholastic achievement of those individuals who completed at least half of the work required for the major and also attained a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better. The society participated in two events during the calendar year — the annual fall reunion with DePaul University and North Park College and the annual spring induction ceremony. On Sunday, May 4, 1986, Elmhurst College ' s Lambda Chapter of Delta Mu Delta inducted thirty-seven members into the society, including Dr. John Bohnert who was inducted as an honorary member for 1986. The Society of Physics Students, the on- ly physics society designed explicitly for students, opened membership, through col- legiate chapters, to anyone interested in physics. The Elmhurst College chapter acted as a service organization for the physics depart- ment and helped to popularize physics will general collegiate public. Within the Society of Physics Studc Sigma Psi Sigma, a nationally recogr honor society, elected members on the bas outstanding academic achievement. As 1986, there were over five hundred twenty-five chapters of Sigma Psi Sigmt campuses across the country. Sigma Tau Delta, the national En honor society, is comprised of undergrad students ranking in the highest thirty-five cent of their class in general scholarship, w B average in English, and having complete least three semesters of college. Phi Kappa Phi was founded at the Uni sity of Maine in 1897 to emphasize scholar in the thought of college and unive students, and to stimulate mental achievem by the prize of membership. The Elmhurst lege Chapter, established in 1977, was opti all students, with membership based prim on scholarship.

After a decline in the number of new students the previous fall, the Admissions Office entered the 1985-86 recruiting season with planned strategies aimed at reversing the negative trend. Through a combination of activities and hard work, the Admissions Office was successful in at- taining its goals, increasing the numbers of new freshmen by about ten percent and the new transfers by about eight percent. — Mr. Matthew Mimlitz The Office of Financial Aid administered a broad variety of federal, state, private and institu- tional sources of financial assistance, including scholarships, grants, loans and student employ- ment opportunities which were award ed to over sixty f)ercent of the students enrolled full time and to many part-time students. The major objectives of the Financial Aid Office were to supply students with thorough, timely in- formation about assistance, to provide aid to those who could not afford otherwise and to utilize resources fairly and effectively. ..f — Mr. Gary Rold (above left) Student hosts per- form a vital service for the Ad- missions Office: making pro- spective students feel at home.

Through our office, students registered for classes each term and changed their class schedules for the term. The office also sent grade reports to each student at the end of each term and maintained the academic record of all students at the college. — Mr. Larry Borgione The Business Office played a vital role in the life of the institution, seeing that the flow of funds to and from all the different constituencies was ac- counted for, and that records were maintained properly.

The College Union Building was the hub of student life on campus. By design and in practice, the CUB served as a family room away from home for most students and a number of faculty and staff. It was the place to pick up your mail, grab a bite to eat, play some pool, listen to a concert, buy your books or a candy bar to get you through the after- noon — the place to meet friends and make friends. The information desk, mailroom and cafeteria staffs became comfortable familiar faces. And on a cold, snowy afternoon, the fireplace was the most popular spot around.

It has been stated that education ' s purpose is to experiment, connect, set and reset aims. Certainly these are opportunities in life that most successful achievers take. Why not learn them in the safest laboratory — college. The Dean of Students staff was dedicated to creating rich oppor- tunities through co-curricular activities, health awareness, athletic competition, residence hall living, career planning, personal counseling and assistance with academic issues. At Elmhurst, ex- perience was provided through clubs and activities, internships, part-time jobs, athletics, performing arts, leadership training, and personal assessment to benefit from the knowledge of others and solve real problems in that once-in-a-lifetime riskfree setting — college. Our staff joined the rest of the College community in spon- soring an environment that helped students meet the purpose of education. — Dr. James Cunningham Bottom Row: Joyce Stevens, Cheryl Leoni, John Woleske, Joe Caliguro, Janet Laver, Janice Fodor.

Most of Elmhurst College ' s relationships with its external constituencies were handled through these offices, including responsibilities for: Development, Alumni and Parent Rela- tions, Church Relations, Government Relations, Public Relations and Sports Information. Inter- nal constituency roles also existed with Trustees, faculty, staff and students. The tasks were many and frequently overlap- ping, but the underlying goals of making friends, raising dollars and enhancing the image of Elmhurst College wherever possible keyed each and every effort. It was a big job, but we knew that when we undertook it! — Ken Bartels Alumni, faculty and staff receive the Elmhurst College Magazine, published quarterly by the Public Relations Department. 140 At the annual June Benefit, local dignitaries, faculty, staff and other friends of the college share an evening of dining and dancing.

Through the Library ' s par- ticipation in the statewide LCS computer network, E.G. students had access to another fourteen million books and several thousand journals in other libraries around the state. Computers played a big part in today ' s librfuies and our campus library was no exception. Catalog- ing, circulation and detailed bibliographic searching were all computerized operations. The newest thing in the library? — specifJly printed labels inside most books which permitted the use of a light pen linked to the computer for faster and more accurate check-out. During August, the en- tire library staff spent nearly two weeks matching approximately 125,000 books and their labels. In addition to the hardware and the hi-tech, the library iJso provided " user-friendly " librarians to help simplify the sometimes complicated process of library reseeu-ch. — Mrs. Carol Barry The card catalog assists th | student in his research on tl I Kennedys. j j Francie Habash kicks back ir the media center to take notes on a video.

A car bomb explod- ed in a residential section of Christian East Beirut. A Palestinian terrorist injured 38 by tossing a grenade into a cafe. The murder of wheelchair bound Leon Klinghaffer occurred aboard the ill-fated Achille Lauro. These stories prompted a tremendous increase in airport security and a decline in the number of Americans traveling overseas. Aid to drought victims in Ethiopia and other African nations was on the minds of many citizens. Fundraising efforts by celebrities con- tinued and was expanded to include the hungry in America through such programs as the se- cond Farm Aid concert and the Hands Across America chain. In the winter, the nation mourned the loss of seven American astronauts who gave their lives aboard the space shuttle Challenger when it ex- ploded shortly after takeoff. NASA ' s program underwent close scrutiny as a result of this and several other lesser incidents during the year. The Soviet Union experienced the largest nuclear accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The effects were felt in nearby countries as farmland and livestock were con- taminated by the fallout.

These rules were enforced only if you got caught by an alert R.A. Niebuhr Hall especially liked to party, so twice during the year they sponsored dances in the Union for the entire campus, both a big success. Schick Hall also was known for some unusual parties, including a Sauna Party which demanded a towel or bathing suit attire. By the way, studying and sleeping oc- curred in the halls occasionally. lide and out, Niebuhr Hall frked Homecoming Week. 151 Preparing for the big moment, future graduates put on the fmishing touches.

Just the other day, I was deciding on where to go to col- lege, what to major in and what to be when I grew up. Relief overtook me when I realized it was almost time to graduate. Before graduation became a reality, there were so many things that had to be done. The first chore was to complete a resume. Resume writing was not a simple task, but rather a monumental challenge. Workshops for resume writing never seemed to end. Concentration was not only on content and job experience but also on the importance of the right kind of paper. The year seemed full of last things: the last play I watched, the last volleyball game I saw, the last U.B. meeting I attended, the last time to register. Senior pictures had to be taken. Nostalgia often sprang up. I often found myself saying, " I remember when . . . " After receiving the resume back from the typesetter, I had to decide what to do with it. Some people mailed them to companies, others gave them to on-campus recruiters and still others just stared at them. Facing up to what one would do in the future made a lot of people anxious, myself included. Other options besides going to work loomed at me — graduate school (but no money), become a wife (but no husband), fail a class (my parents would kill me), or jump off a building (too messy). Being a sensible person, job hunting seemed the next step. The dreaded interview often was disasterous. A run in the stocking, a crooked tie or a spot on the jacket plagued the hopeful job candidate. If luck or the right skills ran in the proper direc- tion, a second call back was granted. Expecta- tions rose, the job was hopefully secured, but everything depended on whether graduation occurred. I graduated. — Chris Seiberlich Sue Birdsey takes a break while waiting for the serve at a volleyball match. 153 Carolyn Cartwright Simon Calalano Good friends, Kris Karson and Laura Toren, remember the fun limes.

Graduation practice started early Saturday morning. We filled out forms, found our proper seating and learned how to put on our robes. We waited anxiously for practice to end and for the fun to start. The fun began at nine. The Senior party enticed many people, although, only graduating seniors and faculty were invited. Decorated in black and white, the cafeteria displayed a new image and served a beverage not normally sold — beer and wine. A local D.J. provided the music for the party attenders to dance or just to listen. Crackers, vegetables and fruits allowed something to munch on after working up a sweat. The annu£il champagne toast was delivered at midnight and the crowd dispersed soon after to continue partying or to await commencement.

As students received the specially-designed pins, the Director of Nursing and her instructors welcomed the class into the nursing profession. After reciting the nurses ' oath, class members departed the Chapel with a rose and small Bible to commemorate the annointing of their hands in dedication to service.

Mike Lowhorn graduates from Reverend Helt pronounces a Elmhurst College as his uncle final blessing on the graduates had before him. attending the Baccalaureate Service. 170 For many students, graduation marks an accomplishment for the whole family. The nursing pins had all been distributed, the day remained warm and sunny and the next ceremony was scheduled to begin at eleven o ' clock. The Baccalaureate, a nondenominational service, invited all graduates to partake in the ceremony which was held in Hammerschmidt Chapel. The future graduates were joined by the faculty and administration, the choir and their family and friends. Dr. Avery Post, President of the United Church of Christ, delivered a sermon, " On Having It All. " This appropriate theme hit not only the graduates but all those who heard it. The graduates had strived for four years to get it all and the future was waiting for them to try.

Finally, for all graduates the day had arrived. At three o ' clock, eight hundred and twenty-one graduates would meet in the College Mall to receive their coveted diplomas. The graduates began assembling in their proper o rder at two thirty. The temperature had dropped drastically from the morning and graduation caps needed to be secured with bobby pins. The Proces- sional began at the appointed hour. " Pomp and Circumstance " played over and over as the candidates for the Bachelor Degree and the facul- ty made their way to their seats. The exercises began after all the participants were in the ap- propriate places. Ms. Jean AUard, a partner at Sonenschein Carlin Nath and Rosenthal, delivered the commencement address. Her in- sights were listened to by anxious graduates. The Reverend Helt presented an Honorary Doctor of Letters Degree to Dr. Avery Post, President of the United Church of Christ. The Baccalaureate Degrees were distributed next. Each student ' s name was called and the actual diploma handed out. The ceremony came to a close and the graduates proceeded to the Chapel stairs. After all the graduates were assembled, the tradition of singing the Alma Mater was continued. (center right) Do the glasses hide thoughts of a sunny future?

In an attempt to relieve stress, Ron Springer and Katherine Bus take in a performance by entertainer Jim Hawley. I am relieved the experience is over! I forgot how much lime and effort it takes to produce a quality yearbook when only a few people work on it. The person who deserves a lot of credit is my friend and ad- viser, Janet Laver. Janet learned more about a yearbook than she ever bargained for when she took the job as Assistant Dean of Students. She was the only person, besides myself, who never tossed in the towel. Although there were many times we wanted to cry, I know some day we will be able to laugh at this whole experience. When I started this project I wanted people to get involved. A lot of people contributed to this book by writing copy for their organizations, classes and departments. It was often a struggle to get that information but they did a good job and I appreciated their help. I hope the next editor, Doug Lesky, continues to get more students involved with the yearbook. I also appreciated all the support my friends gave me, not to mention the abuse I took. I am still taking abuse because the book took so long to complete, but the only reward is that I know the book is damn good! Chris Seiberlich Editor-in-Chief 184
