All Photos by Commencement Photos 30 HALLOWEEN HALLOWEEN 31 HOME SWEET UNION by Maria Leon w hat is a commuter at Emerson College? It is a person who holds a vital position and some of the time much more important than some realize. This job also involves a lot of feelings, which have to be dealt with every day. First, it involves a big decision — the choice to be a commuter, whether off campus but nearby, far away, at home, or a combination of the two. Sometimes a student’s financial situation takes that decision making process away because a person may be forced to live at home due to the rising costs of apartments and dorm rooms. Secondly, being a commuter causes a lot of hurt that you must deal with. It hurts when you are looked down upon simply because you’re a commuter. Whether it’s by choice or not. It hurts when people don ' t realize that you can’t hang around after class or for a late meeting because you have to catch a train to get home at a decent hour. But mostly, it hurts when residents don’t take you seriously, and you know it’s only beause you commute to school. When you have made the decision to commute to school, your daily routine consists of this: the feeling of indecisiveness first thing in the morning. Should you or shouldn’t you get out of bed to go to class? You think to yourself, “It’s Monday morning, the weather’s lousy, the trains will be broken, I ' ll catch a cold, and the class will be boring anyway.” Then comes strength, the strength to get up, take a shower, look presentable, and go off to school. Aggravation appears next as your bus is late and you end up walking to the T station. The blue line is slow, the red line is being repaired, but the green line is running smoothly. Well, will wonders never cease? Of course your good luck runs out there. A smelly guy with alcohol not only on his breath but all over his body stands right next to you, and you think, “But how come people like him always end up standing next to me?” Then he reaches his arm over you to hang on to the pole. Aren’t you happy? — your head is right underneath his armpit which smells ten times worse than the alcohol. Finally, he gets off and you spot an empty seat. 1 lowever, a ninety year old lady wants that same seat and as soon as she sees you coming, takes her cane out and trips you, then sits down. Of course, she wouldn’t do the polite thing and ask you for the seat!! You discover that it’s now four minutes before class begins, so you get off the trains at Arlington and run as fast as you can all the way to 168 Beacon. You run up to the third floor, huffing and puffing all the way and — Oh, No — that sign, “Ec 101 A is cancelled today. Professor Inconsiderate will be in on Thursday and will reschedule this class.” Now you’re angry. Your first thought is to kill Professor Inconsiderate, and your second is to kick yourself for deciding to get out of bed this morning. Well, you now have four hours off until your next class, so why not walk down to the Student Union? Now, walking from the classroom to the Union is where you meet a variety of Emersonians. There are the preppies, or the soon-to-be- Yuppies as they now prefer to be called; the serious students who always seem to be talking down to you, even though you can’t detect their superiority; the Cyndi Lauper Boy George Prince Michael Jackson Madonna lookalikes; the people who flaunt their sexuality, no matter what it is, even though you really aren ' t interested in knowing; the international students who insist on teaching the Bostonians how to speak; the actors, actresses, dancers, newscasters, photojournalists, writers, advertisers, producers, directors, disc jockeys, and managers; the residents; anc of course, the commuters. Somehow you fit into one or more of these categories even though you don’t always want to. Now you arrive at the Union. As you walk into 96 Beacon, you realize that this is the one place at Emerson that being a commuter brings warmth, joy, and friendship. This is the one place where you truly belong. Put into play now is the feeling of happiness. There’s nothing like seeing a smile and a “How y’all doin’?” greeting from Virginia as soon as you arrive. T hen there’s the Union Staff: Forever apologizing, can’t-say-no- Bill; Jeanne who’s always running around like a chicken with her head cut off: friendly John; serious James: efficient Ruth; cute Tammy: hyper Jamie; and just-plain-crazy Bob. Downstairs in the Unkommon Bostonian we have the ever efficient staff of Bob, Scott, Ave, and Suzanne. Then, of course, we have Psuedo-Bruce and the real Bruce, who contrary to popular belief really does speak, and whom we’ll all miss next year. Now, comes many smiles as you spot the Psuedo Union Staff, the original Commuter Club. Although things haven’ been the same since you lost your back room, your feelings for each other have never changed. And once all seated together, you discuss the upcoming graduation, which brings memories of days gone by. Remember when: Everyone skipped classes to have a drink at the Bull Finch or to play frisbee in the back room? Claire read her Tarot cards? f)ave changed his last name and then left school, forever promising to return? Barbara always claimed to be engaged to Pete Falcone of 105.7 FM? Tom and Carol thought Maria was Stacy? Norman flunked Baukus’ midterm and Tom dropped his class, but still had to do a final project for him? Christmas was celebrated with Kris 32 STUDENT LIFE Kringle gifts? •Jim and Dave took Maria and Leah out " or tea and made them pay for hemselves? Nick had a perpetual tan? • ' Norman’s constant breakups and eunions with-you-know-who? All Mandy ever did was type papers? K Bob S. overslept and missed his first nidterm? • ' Maria S. couldn’t get through the day vithout a parking ticket? ' John E. said goodbye to everyone after wery semester but keeps coming back? Bill forgot to put the car in “Park” and eft Virginia rolling down the street? ' Jeanne C. was always in charge of cakes or everyone’s birthday parties? ' Beer was sneaked into the back room md kept on the fire escape so nobody ivould find out? ' Tom, John, and Julie made Three’s Company in reverse? ' fhe fourth floor lounge couple met ;ach morning at 8:00 to start off their lay ‘together’? John was surprised AGAIN at his annual urprise birthday party? Jamie, Gregg and Robyn joined us this ear? j ' The old lady who asked directions to he Board of Director’s Meeting yelled at ohn for being rude when he asked her f she could read? The Union changed its lobby decor? Ed pretended to be Bruce Springsteen ind danced in the dark? 1 Carol became the inspiration of ZZ fop’s “Legs”? Ana was quiet? We said goodbye to all our friends at ur Commuter party at the V.F.W. in Norwood? The Student Union is where ommuters are treated as people, these fiends become family. It’s where people |ry together, laugh together, help each pther, care for one another and love each Ither. It’s where this family of friends lave grown together and one day will ook back with fond remembrance on heir commuting days. Sometimes, being at the Union can be jo much fun that you almost forget that ou have to leave for class or for home. And then you realize that you really do BELONG at Emerson, because you’re a commuter. So, what is a commuter at Emerson College? It’s a person filled with such emotion who learns to put up with the hardships, laugh at the rough times, stand up for his her position, make lasting friends and memories, and mostly, be proud of whom he is. A commuter is no different than a resident. photo by li.

Now is when the real challenge begins.” said commencement speaker Isabel Sanford. It may have been Mother’s Day but it was graduation day also. Emerson College graduated 475 undergraduate and graduate students. The ceremony, held at the Park Plaza Castle, was attended by moms, dads and friends. Isabel Sanford, ‘Louise’ on The Jeffersons, is a 1981 Emmy Award winner for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. Ms. Sanford was awarded an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters. Although the commencement was long many students entertained themselves by listening to the Celtics’ playoffs against the Philadelphia 76er’s on Walkmans and by drinking champagne. The Dean’s Prize was awarded to Ruth Twichell; the Carol Burnett Award to Cynthia Horsman; and the President’s Prize to Alan Padula. Valedictorian Hedi Price said that Emerson is “charged by the energy of Boston.” Class speaker Amy Neal spoke about “communication adaptability”. " It is not what you say, it is how you say it.” Neal said. A champagne reception was held following the graduation. 80 GRADUATION STUDENT LIFE 81 SSjSf 82 STUDENT LIFE STUDENT LIFE 83 Praxis EMERSON UNIVERSITY? by Ana Machado “A 1 Jl university speaks to the need for research and creative art by emphasizing terminal degrees such as the Doctor of Philosophy and a Master of Fine Arts that equip people to conduct significant research and to produce works of art that merit long lasting attention. ” — President Allen E. Koenig in a recent faculty report that reasserts his desire to upgrade the education and research systems of Emerson College. “I think the school is a specialized institution. It should concentrate on its specialities instead of branching out.” — An anonymous student “1 think Koenig is neglecting the needs of the students right now, and looking to the future instead.” — Steve Boucher ‘8(5 “The plans President Koenig has for Emerson can only move the college ahead instead of backwards.” — Lisa Bonanno ‘87 " 1 think it will give more credibility to the school. It will be another step toward the improvement of the institution.” — Doug Kesseli ‘88 “(Emerson) will always remain something unique. The institution will still remain the name of Emerson College.” — Anthony DeLuca, Chairperson 1 1 umanities “It will enhance the prestige and degrees from Emerson College.” Harry Morgan, Chairperson Theatre Arts Growing Pains In recent years, Emerson’s enrollment has grown immensely. The number of full-time students has increased from 1,300 in 1979 to 1,850 in 1984. I he total number of enrollments, including continuing education and graduate students, now ranges front 2,500 to 3,000 students. “Our intention is to reach about 3,000 full-time students, not 50,000 like Ohio State for example.” Koenig said. But before Emerson can achieve university status, there is much work to be done. In May of 1984, it became clear to Emerson officials that they had far more 1984 85 enrollments than expected, with too few dorm rooms and classrooms. The answer? Emerson’s solution was to refurbish the Charlesgate dorm and to move two floors of administrators f rom 100 Beacon Street to make room for the overflow of students. This decision led to the purchase of the Oliver Ames Mansion, located at the corner of Mass. Ave and Comm. Ave, and 21 Comm. Ave. THE SAPP 1 he Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay is devoted to preserving the quality of life in the Back Bay area. It consists of 3,000 members, who form different committees, which work with the students from area colleges in cleaning up alleys and various other neighborhood activities. The NABB says that Mi l and Katherine Gibbs have shown great participation in this and that Emerson hasn’t. According to William Wells, Asst, to the President, that’s not true. He says that Emersonians, especially commuters, have worked on the cleanup committee and sometimes even on their own. He added that Emerson should be told when these things are going to take place so the word can be passed around campus. I he NABB does not have the legal authority to prevent Emerson or anybody else from buying property, but it is against institutions that “fail to recognize their responsibility to work harmoniously with their neighbors, and Emerson is one of them.” stated Paul Demakis, V.P. of the NABB. The Ames Building The Ames mansion was purchased from James L. Bildner, president of Windward Group Companies, Inc. Purchase price was $2.9 million. According to George Broadbent, V.P. for Business and Finance, the building needed some improvements from the original price of $2.8 million. State Representative Thomas Vallely referred to the Ames purchase as “a direct violation of previous agreements between Emerson and the Back Bay community.” 86 PRAXIS The community was afraid Emerson would turn the Ames building into a dormitory, but the college assured them that it would be used solely for office space. Emerson occupies the first and fourth floors. The other two floors are occupied by commercial businesses whose leases Emerson honors. As a commercial property owner, the school must pay taxes on the space they rent. The lease is used to partially cover the cost of the building. On September 24 Emerson announced a second purchase — 21 Commonwealth Avenue. The building was bought from Newbury Junior College for $1.5 million. The building is used to house classes. The building is also the new home of the Communication Studies Department, which has been growing over the years. University is Just a Label For months, President Koenig met with groups of 12-15 faculty members to discuss the university status. He informed them of what was ahead and asked for reactions. Among those professors who attended those meetings was Dr. Kenneth Crannell, professor of Communication Studies classes, He supports President Koenig’s decision. Crannell is an alumnus of Emerson who has been a faculty member for the past 27 years. He said that as long as the administration keeps within the mission of the college the university status would be “for the betterment of the college.’’ Reverend John Coffee, Associate Professor of History, also feels that the college would benefit by offering more graduate courses and adding new ' research facilities. He also predicts that Emerson will be considered one of the most prestigious institutions in the country. According to the Board of Regents of Higher Education’s Independent Institutions of Higher Education Standards, “an institution of higher education which provides a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs, usually includes programs leading to a doctorate degree in two or more major fields of study. A university clearly identifies graduate studies as a distinct element within its organization.” To establish university status, Emerson must file a petition to the Massachusetts Secretary of State; refers it to the board of Regents, who then conduct an investigation of Emerson. According to the Board’s standards, Emerson must provide information that includes evidence of the stability of the organization with data regarding its age, growth, development, and professional standing, information of endowment funds is also required. Facts about faculty (including educational or professional background and a description of their responsibilities) are needed, as well as information about the library facilities. The Board must also know the present admissions procedures, entrance requirements, an any anticipated changes in them if the petition is granted. The Board of Regents would then conduct a visit to Emerson with a public hearing following that. A decision would then be made by formal vote by the Board. Emerson of ficials would be notified in writing of the decision with a statement of reasons for the decision. The institution has 30 days to appeal the decision. According to John C. Weston, Academic Program Director of the Board of Regents of Higher Education, this endeavor could take several years because of the paperwork and other details to be processed. If everything goes according to schedule, the university status will be a reality in 1988, by which time the college intends to meet the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ requirements by offering a Master of Fine Arts in Writing (1985); MFA in Theatre (1986); a doctorate of Philosophy in Communication Disorders (1987);, and a Ph.D in Theater History and Criticism ( 1987). To further upgrade its academic programs, Emerson plans to offer new majors in American Culture and Media (1985); European International Studies (1985); Visual Communication, or Media and Graphic Design (1985 1986); Communication Management and Media (1985), and Computer and Communication Studies (1985). The library collection will be expanded in all areas of research. The college w ill also offer part-time degree programs; develop overseas programs and a stronger national program in forensics, establish research fellowships for graduate students; establish graduate reading rooms in the library, and expand the Fenway Library Consortium activities and data bases, as well as those from the Pro- Arts Consortium. Emerson then plans to change the name of Graduate Studies to Graduate School, ! J to . offer an interdisciplinary • 4 i i honors curriculum, and increase full-time faculty to 90 by 1986 and 95 by 1988. In a speech President Koenig stated that, “University is just a label.” Emerson College will always be called Emerson College. As this yearbook was going to press Emerson is still looking for a possible new site for its campus. PRAXIS 87 Mary Ellen Adams Assistant Professor Cynthia Alcorn Head of Collection Dvlp.

Praxis is Emerson College. In essence, praxis is the application of theory to hands on experience. Emerson College! Some say we don’t study here. Well they are wrong. How many college students anywhere do you know that will stay up late working on their television 3 documentary or rock video? Or stay up late putting together a student newspaper, a reporter package, organizing an event for school? We are not just talking about one night a month. Usually three, four or more nights a week.. Emerson- ians are not known for getting a lot of sleep during the weeks that fill a semester. Sure we do study. The library fills up at night, around midterms and finals. We do all the normal college studying in addition to the extra push. The praxis part. Praxis is Emerson. mT r " " 1 11 V , ' j 1 92 PRAXIS Photo by P.R.

When the news reached the Emerson student body unrest arose. Students didn’t want to move for they felt that Emerson wouldn’t be Emerson anymore. The character that Emerson has from the city of Boston would be lost. Lists of possible sites circulated in newspapers, it seemed that Emerson might be moving to the suburbs. What about internships, jobs nightlife? Emerson has that proximaty now. Some students decided to assemble a protest on the wall during the Phi Alpha Tau press conference which President Koenig was attending. The students made the local news with their words of anger. Students assemble outside of Student Union. Students circulated petitions against any move. 96 PRAXIS ' •A PRAXIS 97 98 PRAXIS Senior Photo — II SENIOR PHOTO II 99 Dance Company E.E.F.A.S. 102 CLUBS ORGANIZATIONS Senior Class Of f icers Junior Class Officers Sophomore Class Officers CLUBS 8c ORGANIZATIONS 103 SPJ SDX Alpha Epsilon Rho 104 CLUBS ORGANIZATIONS SGA EXEC COUNCIL FORENSICS CLUBS ORGANIZATIONS 105 Mil Berkeley-Beacon The Berkely-Beacon is published, written, typeset and distributed by students.

Break out the champagne, where are the brews!! I’m done. I’m tired. Mentally, more so than physically. This yearbook isn’t exactly what I had in- tended but the entire year was not what I had expected at all. There were so many hurdles and brick walls that could not be avoided. I became tired of answering the age old question “Where’s the ’84 yearbook?” I could scream!! I can say now that it is out, two years in pro- duction but there it is, enjoy. Being in charge of an organization is really a thankless job. Darts are usually thrown instead of laurels. You are told of your wrongs instead of being thanked for doing something right. Student leaders are for the most part responsible. You should be told when you have gone wrong but the reverse should be true also. I ' d like to thank everyone who had anything whatso- ever to do with this baby. Seriously a yearbook can not be done by itself, a staff of few maybe! This one’s for you seniors, I hope you like it. It’s merely a representa- tion of the year that was. The photos that will remain are the ones that you keep inside of you. The times shared with friends in your last few weeks at Emerson and from the year. I have all this space and nothing to say. I have to thank Cricket. Our first ‘real’ deadline was sheer hell. 1 swear we didn’t get any sleep for ten days. It’s the truth. So yearbook burnout has set in on me at this point! I don’t care what happens from this point! Not true. It was fun for the first days then it became a real heavy burden that I woke up with everyday. But I am tired and rambling on because I in tired, I know. I hate typos. !@ $ %$ (( 2% ! 4 + • Translate that! Sneer madness sugar! I we did a 240 page book! Enjoy! If you have any complaints or suggestions, tell your dog!! In addition to those that have been thanked and acknowledged a few lines should be devoted to the Editor of the yearbook: Jeanne Brophy. Yearbooks have a long tradition of starting the year until a much larger staff as compared to the end of the year. The main reason for this is that many people want instant output for their input. It’s difficult to stay motivated when you won ’t see the results for at least six months or more. Jeanne has remained motivated and has simultaneously been an editor, photographer, production! layout expert, copy fitter ... the list goes on. Whoever said “It’s a dirty job but it ' s got to be done ” was talking about being a yearbook editor. Congratulations on a job well done ana thanks for a great year! — Cricket STUFF 239
