ohm : .:l ' iS ' ---:: ; ' :,1 " :,| it mm ■ FITCHBURG STATE COLLEGE Presents 1982-1983 SAXIFRAGE YEARBOOK THE STUDENT BODY You. the student, are a blood cell in this great big body called college. Embarking upon a new voyage, you are rejuvenated with oxygen, after a restful night in the lungs. Into the bloodstream you travel, to the stomach to pick up energy, to the brain to drop off information (books) and finally to the heart to meet more blood cells. Back into the arteries you travel, out to the muscles and along the way you encounter two hazards. The bacteria are forever mak- ing your life miserable by moving here and there. Then, don ' t forget the blood clots (clusters of talking people) which halt your progress and you must detour to reach your ultimate goal (classes). .After that long and tiresome journey, you begin your ascent back A transfusion holds you up a bit but you at last find refuge in the lungs. You rest and begin your journey again (on the next day). The Lungs Blood Cell The The Muscles Stomach ARE YOG A 1, 2, 3. OR 4? " If our parents call, we ' re at the library " is a frequent message that can be found on most dormatory memo boards, indicating that the library is a popular place to be. Well if popularity is what you seek, if you want a reason not to study, and procrastination is your goal, then the library ' s first floor is the place most students choose to be. This floor offers the best view of who ' s coming or going, and with who; and has the best reputation for being the home of the " social hour " . Mo week would be complete without one pass through the first floor. As the semester progresses however, and passing is the top priority, the student finds himself moving more quickly through the social area and up into the quieter re- cesses of the building. Overlooking the " so- cial area " (and therefore also a good " view spot " ) is the second floor where one can find (if he dares) miles of microfilm and shelves of (dusty) magazines. Here the con- versation is greatly reduced and more directed to " research " talks. (Most students try to avoid this floor.) Mo one is really sure what happens on the third floor but to the people who inhabit this region, it ' s a jungle. A senior computer science major must combat three fresh- men for every terminal, and (reliable as our computer system is) he often finds the computer down after the battle is won. Here we find grown people yelling at machines and getting lost in piles of paper, with lots of numbers on it. It ' s not a pretty sight. Finally, at the penthouse level of our Hammond Building, we find, nestled among shelves and shelves of actual books, our studious people. This is the floor where academics take over and people re- treat to when a test looms overhead. CHANGING WITH THE TIMES Announcing the new look in Togas for 1 982-83! Direct from the fashion hub of the universe, Fitchburg State College, these new and exciting togas deserve a second look. As you can see, these new togas re- flect the creative and somewhat out- rageous attitudes of the students here at F.S.C. The togas now come in a wide vari- ety of colors as well as traditional white. The real attention grabber for these models is the wide variety of accessories. For exam- ple, note that the traditional laurel wreath is no longer the focal head ornament. Instead, you will find a wide variety of hats, head- bands, and yes, even vegetables. Sun- glasses, neckties, and of course the ever- present beer bottle are just a few more of the many accessories imaginable. In order to suit your individual personali- ty, many " looks " have been developed for you to choose from. Depending on your mood, you might select, the " Macho " look, the " Patriotic " look, the " Blue Collar " look, and for you health freaks, the " Vegetarian " look is always an attention getter. This is just the beginning in a totally new era in togas. Look forward to even more exciting styles to come, inspired by such designers as Sasson, Vanderbilt, and look forward to the most revealing designs to come from top designer Seymore B. Hind. f «•♦ ♦» LOW BUDGET The weekend munchies have done it again. Today is Tuesday and we spent all day yesterday scrounging the cupboards. One can of cream of chicken soup, some egg noodles, bread crusts, margarine, one moldy orange, and one can of Bud is all that is left I found a grocery list and $53.76 on the kitchen table and a note stating that myself and another poor un- fortunate person will be doing the dirty deed for the five of us this week. Also a P.S. saying I stili owed $10.00 for last weeks groceries. Upon entering Demoulas. we grab a cart and start down the dairy isle, off to the deli to get the cheapest luncheon meat which is usually bologna. Milk. eggs, margarine and toilet paper are musts: $6.97. Bread, hamburg, chicken, ketchup, Doritos. OJ., $20.84. Crackers, toothpaste . . . Oreos, Campbells soup, . . . We ' re ready to check out after dodging all the overweight housewives and bratty kids who knock cereal boxes off the shelves. We fly by a bunch of guys who must be shopping for the first time be- cause they spend 10 minutes deciding which meat to buy. The cashier says " $51.49 please! " Whew! We didn ' t have to put anything back. Total time — 25 minutes. On to Shamrocks! THE PORSCHE How do you know you ' re entering a col- lege neighborhood? Maybe the number of beer cans and pizza boxes or loud music gives a clue. But 1 notice something that ' s on all the streets, the College Car. I think these machines were destined to have different personalities. Some are de- pendable, others are fickle. Some are flashy, others are lucky enough to have enough body to pass inspection. The Col- lege Car may also have added features, such as air conditioning, car stereos, and pinstripes on the doors. I would say, black vinyl interiors (especially designed for sum- mer driving), with two side vents, an AM radio, and three different colored fenders, (clashing colors being much more desire- 10 IS IN THE SHOP able), are more prevalent on Fitchburg streets. College wheels have varying social lives, which usually reflect their owners. Some never leave the sidewalk except to drive to clinical in Worcester. Others really get around; they go to The Pretenders at S.M.U., camping in New Hampshire, the Cape, on packy runs, food shopping, and of course close calls and last calls! Going home on weekends these cars are always filled to capacity with people, dirty laundry and school books. Coming back to school, they are full of food and fatter people. But most importantly, they come and go. BftlOHTEN MV OAV GET Off THE fiOAO k YOGR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE? Have you been to the bookstore lately? If you have, you already know that if you ' re going to buy books, you had better take out a student loan. For those of you who haven ' t been to the bookstore (and there are some students who have made it all four years without going in) it offers quite a wide variety of supplies to meet every college student ' s needs. For the freshmen, there is a wall devoted to t-shirts, football shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, hats and jackets all with the school logo on them. For the sophisticated alcoholic, there are beer steins, shot glasses and mugs with the famous Fitchburg State College seal. For those of you who actually like to read books other than those assigned to you, the bookstore can help there too. Best sellers and " not so famous " books are there for the buying. There are also some very spe- cial magazines made for those of you who just like to look at the pictures and have something to keep them company with on those long and lonely nights. For the graphics major, there is poster board, t-squares, pens, pencils, tape, and much more. Munchies are also available if you can ' t make it to the cafeteria or only have thirty cents in your pocket. On the whole, the bookstore offers a wide variety of products to choose from. So if you haven ' t been inside, take a chance and go in. You might be surprised. Don ' t forget to say " hi " to Margaret as you leave. As the bookstore cashier, she is a constant source of happiness and good cheer. 12 13 RA ' S ARE PEOPLE TOO! R.A. Just what does that term mean? This is a question that many new students ask, but few ever get a good answer. The answer can only be found by actually living the experience of being a Resident Assistant. The R A. is usually the first person that you meet when you come up to Fitchburg State. You are told that this person is your friend and that if you have any problems, you are to go to him. So students go to him when they have roommate problems, fami- ly difficulties, course problems or if they just get locked out of their room. Many students learn early that an R A is someone that will be there 24 hours a day if needed. Students also learn early that an RA is a " bad guy " . When it comes to discipline, the RA. is the person who tells you to turn down the stereo or to dump the beer out. Besides being a friend and a disciplina- rian, an R A. is a human information center. The RA. gives directions as to where your first class is, o r where to find the library. He knows how to drop and add courses and to who you should go see about it. An RA. is one person who someone can go to with a question about school and if he does not know the answer, he knows where to send you to find it. The most important thing about an RA., the area that most people forget, is that an RA. is also a student. They have course problems, family difficulties, and they have flaws. RA. ' s like to go to keg parties, like to sit around drinking a beer and just shoot the shit. This at times can cause problems. When one night you are at a keg party with someone, and the next night you must write that same person up for drinking in public, can be a very hard to do. The RA. ' s job is rough and not meant for everyone. It ' s hearing other people ' s prob- lems when you have enough of your own or being woken up at 4 in the morning be- cause someone needs to be let into their own room. The job, however, is a way of meeting many great people and a way of growing as a person. The job can be very satisfying and a lot of fun. So in answer to what is an R A , an R A. is a person like you and me. 14 15 16 FALL FALL FALL FALL FALL FALL FALL FALL F 17 FEMALE MODELS WATCH OUT!! Who ever said that only women display gorgeous legs? Well, who ever they are, they are far from the truth. The Program ' s Committee ' s Annual Hot Legs Contest of the football players with its high turnout of young women is a clear indication that this college feels that men have as nice, if not nicer looking legs, than women. Women flock to the campus center to place their bids on a pair of legs that they like and would like to get to know. Better yet. these women are paying with their own money to see what else goes with those legs. And. the higest bidder for each pair of legs is rewarded with a gift certificate to Tweeds where she and her companion, along with those beautiful legs, get the din- ner of their choice (within the limits of the gift certificate). 1 Hot legs? HEALTH SERVICES j Thank God for our Nurse Practitioner. Without her, our apartment would have been quarantined. One roommate had mono, one had a knee operation, one had the chicken pox, one had strep throat and I was the only healthy victim. Kathy and Allison were always there in times of distress. The health service is open 5 days a week to see patients for medical, gynecological and orthopedic problems. Family planning ser- vices are available by appointment. Immunizations, allergy injections, and Tuberculosis testing is available as well as blood drawing at the request of personal physicians or by our own staff physicians when it is needed. A certified Medical Assistant is on duty five days a week, to assist in office procedures and to do the lab testing: urinalysis, some testing for gynecological infections, testing for occult blood, anemia, diabetes, and pregnancy testing. The Health Service also sponsors special programs such as the following to educate the students at FSC about health: CPR Classes, Nutrition Awareness Day, Blood Pressure Screening Day, Sun Screen Workshop, Health Fair, and Stop Smoking Workshop. Thanks again for always being there. •twtWt : wEr wr ■■BQ 1 J " !TT- - Jk 1 { ■ jL NO PANTS DANCE PlWRVBiw " ' HALLOWEEN NIGHT 1982 Are These People Missing More Than Their Guitars? - ■ •• - i IS ' - ! • T 3 1 ' m SL j L Fall is electric at FSC.

This year ' s team was led by seniors. Ernie Chaplin and Tim Cormier, along with juniors, Ted Pinkos, Ron Wallace, and Steve Mader. The Fal- cons provided their fans with a very exciting season including wins over Western New England College, Western Connecticut, and the University of Massachusetts at Bos- ton. Steve Mader had a season he ' ll never forget, scoring 12 goals and 8 assists. In- cluded in those statistics was a 3 goal hat trick against Framingham State. Ted Pink- os, the stalwart of the Falcon defense, was named to the Massachusetts State College All Conference Team. After watching Ted play this year, it was not a very difficult decision to name Ted to the MASCAC Team. For next year, the outlook is bright for the Falcons. With retiring co-captains Mader and Pinkos, and starters Ron Wal- lace. Doug Vatour, Bob Gadbois, Todd Ful- ler, and Kevin Kramer, the Falcons should provide their faithful with another exciting season.

The Team blazed their way through the beginning of the long season by winning their first 7 contests, all shutouts. A fitting end to a great season came with the announcement of 9 Fitchburg play- ers to the All-Star Team. They were: Sharon Lowry. Beth Long, Sharon Cox.

The Falcons did manage 2 vic- tories and fought hard before bowing to their opponents. After dropping a tough 14-12 decision in their season home open- er, the team traveled to Hartford University and came away with a 20-0 shutout victory. The team dropped to 1-3 when they were edged 14-7 by M.I.T. and 31-27 by Assumption. The next week brought out the best Falcon effort of the season as they clobbered Stonehill 26-6. Great individual performances were turned in by running back Gordon Smith (575 yards rushing on 126 carries and 11 touchdowns) and Ed Cavaney as Quarterback who passed for 1206 yards on 1 17 completions. , 1 L— i WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER 49 4 IRISH COFFEE HOUSE WITH DAVE BINDER If Winter comes, can Spring be far away? — Shelly G-Lobby at a glance. j_ -i Mime and Movement WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER WINTER SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS 69 VOLLEYBALL - •■ •-, ,-ITrilBI-lK $ 9 $ 1 1 m i WOMEN ' S BASKETBALL C " I . - ; Ba » M IF " -W MEN ' S BASKETBALL ..«_, SPRING SPRING SPRING SPRING SPRING SPRING SPRING SPRING 79 •JMtt.

Zuroms Nursing 177 THE FAMOUS FINAL SCENE Think in terms of bridges burned, Think of seasons that must end, See the rivers rise and fall, They will rise and fall again. Everything must have an end, Like an ocean to a shore, Like a river to a stream, It ' s the famous final scene. And how you tried to make it work, Did you really think it could? How you tried to make it last, Did you really think it would? Like a guest who stayed too long, Now it ' s finally time to leave, Yes, it ' s finally time to leave, Take it calmly and serene, It ' s the famous final scene. It ' s been coming on so long, You were just the last to know, It ' s been a long time since you ' ve smiled, Seems like oh so long ago. Now the stage has all been set, And the nights are growing cold, Soon the winter will be here, And there ' s no one warm to hold. Now the lines have all been read, And you knew them all by heart, Now you move toward the door, Here it comes the hardest part, Try the handle of the road, Feeling different feeling strange, This can never be arranged, As the light fades from the screen, From the famous final scene!

LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT! There you are, looking just the same as you did the last time I touched you, Here I am, close to getting tangled up inside the thought of you, Do you love (me) as much as I love (you), And will that love be strong when old feelings start to stir, Looks like we made it, we left each other on the way to another love, Looks like we made it, or I thought so ' til today, until you are there, everywhere, And all I could taste was love the way we made it. Loves so strange, playing hide and seek with hearts and always hurting, And we ' re the fools, standing close enough to touch those burning memories, And if I hold you for the sake of all those times, love made us lose our minds, Could I ever let you go, WE FINALLY MADE IT! — Barry Manilow 237 THE 1983 SAX 238 f 239 SAXIFRAGE STAFF Michael Call John Emerson Carol Fronduto Lisa Bourque Rhonda Torcoletti Paula Peluso Sarah Spencer Becky Reid Robert Frederico Tim Miller With Special Thanks To: Paul Troxell Alan McCall Mark Bogacz Jennifer Schuler Betty Citron Cathy Tassone For Their Contributions!
