Each yields th other but it seems that no one of them ca exist alone. The first year of the new decade brought ' this realization to the students and faculty at Florida State University. As semesters passed, each day that dawned brought something to adapt to learn from, or be proud of. We found ourselves proud to " Chalk One Up " for unexpecte milestones: the academic and athletic tribes joined the Atlantic Coast Conference, the university was chosen over M.I.T. as the location for the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, head football coach Bobby Bowden reached his 200th caree r victory and the Seminoles were the victors in the inaugural Blockbuster Bowl against Penn State in Miami. On the flip side of glory, we approached moments of remorse and were bound to chalk up the negative as experience. The autumn season brought not only falling leaves but descending spirits.

Experience came as a difficult lesson with educational budget ts and rising tuition. Worse than that was war. Campus re- tions came in two forms, support and protest. We would finitely chalk this one up as an experience to remember. Progression and experience could not occur without change. A igle decision impacted the lives of several thousand students. rly in the year, Bernard F. Sliger announced his plans to retire the university ' s president.

Many students held jobs to support their academic and extracurricular endeavors. Even so, time always permitted studying, and a weekend party was never hard to find. No matter what, grades were made, appointments were kept, and social events abounded; but only ONE day at a time. Dana Comfort INSIDE. . .

Many stu- f ormed friendships, from ori- entation on, that they believe will last a life time. IPIRG director Chris Robert- son talks with several stu- dents about his organiza- lany organizations found it easier to attract students when they communicated and related to them one-on-one. llwKL ' " " l rfX .. li. -3© " ; «« ' FINDING A FAMILIAR . : L A imc after time, the ■ urtain has been lifted r ' for another student ' s »- but performance w Independence. When students set foot on campus for the first time, many of them faced situations and emotions that they had put behind them years earlier. Joe Freshman walked into a new environment without a clue as to how the system worked or where he should begin, but worse than that, he had no one walking with him. Of course, this later proved to be a good time of growth and maturing, but that was little consolation for the young freshman in the midst of rediscovering the awk- wardness he felt the first day of grade school. Several students arrived as the only representative from their high school, where they were probably part of a clique of friends that developed over many years. As college students, not only did they discover the freedom from parents, they also experi- enced " freedom " from the support of friends. Almost immediately after the student ' s arrival, a fas- cinating process began. Joe Freshman found himself nat- urally attracted to particular activities, groups, or organ- izations.This process contin- ued throughout the college years and provided the stu- dent with lasting relation- ships. Initially, friends were found in the inevitable places: residence halls, cafe- teria, and classes. " 1 study with friends I ' ve met in class and I ' ve found that we often share the same goals and in- terests, " said Armando Rodriguez. Most groups of friends have more in com- mon than just an academic interest, but that is often re- sponsible for starting the re- lationship. " As a junior in my major, it is through my classes and study groups that I meet peo- ple who I spend time with outside of class, " added Rodriguez. The Greek system provid- ed a close-knit group of friends for all involved. To rush alone meant to meet new people and once in- volved with the sorority or fraternity of choice, more friendships develop and much stronger relationships form. Kim Coleman found her place among her sorority sisters. " Kappa Delta has been my home away from home and E within this sorority I have had the opportunity to meet ma ny wonderful individu- als, " Coleman said. " It ' s sometimes easy to get lost in the crowd at a large univer- sity. " Several people did not turn to academic or social groups when searching out their place in the university sys- tem. They found their needs met by a religious or special interest group. " The crowd I hang out with I ' ve met through cam- pus ministries and through church, " Brett Clark said. " I find the time I spend with my friends to be encouraging and fun. It is a time of growth and a time to be challenged in areas of my life. " Though originally these groups and organizations simply provided the student with extracurricular activi- ties, they soon they became much more than that. Eventually, the student dis- covered that most of his free time was spent with the peo- ple he met through his special interests groups. He would also call his group members when he wanted to talk about anything - even those con- cerns unrelated to their or- ganization. Though one link was strong enough to bind people together within a group, there was something deeper and stronger that held people to- gether. As a result of the strong ties students devel- oped, many of them referred to their college residence as home even before the end of their freshman year. Rachel Priest o o o BLAME IT ON THE ,-iiother tradition at the University came ' i ' .- ' iwith Homecoming W eKrm early November. Students anxiously awaited the week ' s events as sopho- more Suzanne Vento said, " I ' m really looking forward to the new events like the stu- dent social and the carnival. " Student Government con- tributed a great deal to in- crease the number of activ- ities open to students. On Monday evening TROOP performed a concert at the Moon. Admission was free to all University stu- dents, and buses were pro- vided from campus at no cost. Two performances en- abled more students to at- tend. An all new skit competi- tion was held on Tuesday at the Late Night Library. All Greek homecoming pairings, as well as campus organiza- tions, were encouraged to participate. Each skit was to be based on the theme " Seminole Spirit Across the Land. " Awards were given for Most Creative, Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Tau Omega; Most Crowd Participation, Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Tau Omega; and Best Props went to Delta Delta Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon. The top three skits were named to compete again at Pow Wow. Tri Delta and Sig Ep with their version of Little Shop of Denver; Delta Pi, Sigma Nu, and Phi Kappa Psi with the Philadelphia Patriotism to the Seminoles; and Kappa Delta, Beta Theta Pi, and Sig- ma Chi with their version of " Bill and Ted ' s Excellent Ad- venture " were all among the top three competitors for Fri- day ' s Pow Wow. Student Government held a student social on Landis Green Wednesday with free food and drinks. Student sen- ators and cabinet members were there to speak to stu- dents about their concerns. This opportunity enabled students to meet their cam- pus leaders. As for the Greeks, Wednes- day night brought a unique competition. House Decora- tions. Each Greek pairing was given a small budget and asked to decorate one room in the fraternity ' s house to the theme of their city. The first place winners were Al- pha Delta Pi and Alpha Tau Omega with a room decorat- ed with Alaskan ice and an- imals. After all the houses were judged, each pairing held a social to celebrate. A carnival was another new event sponsored by Stu- dent Government. Free rides with games and carnival food were provided to all Univer- sity students. It was a huge success. " It was really a lot of fun, the atmosphere was like a real carnival, but everything was free, " Allison Collins said. As alumni began arriving, everyone eagerly awaited the Homecoming parade on Fri- day afternoon. The rain, however, put a damper on all the excitement as threats of cancellation rang out around the campus. No one would give up after weeks of prep- aration, so as students and the community lined up with umbrellas and raincoats the parade went on. Past Home- coming Queens from as early as the 1940 ' s drove through the streets followed by com- munity and campus officials, the Marching Chiefs, cheer- leaders, and decorated floats. The floats were judged ac- cording to their creative ap- proach of tying in " Seminole Spirit Across the Land " with their individual city themes. Tri Delta and Sigma Phi Ep- silon presented the ski slopes of Denver stretching across to land to the Wescott build- ing and received third place. Second place was awarded to Kappa Alpha Theta and Pi Kappa Psi for their giant movable Mickey Mouse. Al- pha Delta Pi and Alpha Tau Omega took first place with their Seminole riding on a killer whale.

Though the eats of rain changed the :ation from Doak mpbelll stadium to the llahassee Civic Center, the rit of the Seminoles could t be dampened. A crowd of ;r 7,000 people began to e up at 6:30 p.m., eagerly aiting the opening of the ors at 7:00 p.m. With the inge of seating to general mission, Seminoles were sious to acquire the best Its in the house.

" e Masters of Ceremonies, rrad Made Good " Davis lines and the " Voice of the Seminoles " Gene Deckerhoff then introduced the varsity cheerleaders followed by the Golden Girls. Performing their home routine, which won first place at camp this summer, the Golden Girls really caught the eyes of the audience. " Their performance was awesome as always! The beat really got the crowd into it, " Scott Feldman commented about the Golden Girls ' win- ning routine. Coach Bobby Bowden, fol- lowed by senior starters, was next to rouse the crowd. Coach Bowden pumped the audience ' s adrenalin with his plans to spear the Cincinnati Bearcats on Saturday. In addition to the tradi- tional schedule of events was the first annual skit compe- tition. The top three skits performed earlier in the week at Skit Night, competed at Pow Wow for the first place trophy. The top competitors were Tri Delta and Sigma Ep- silon with the city of Denver; Kappa Delta, Sigma Chi, and Beta Theta Pi and Delta Sig- ma Theta with Hollywood; and Delta Gamma, Sigma Nu and Phi Kappa Psi with Phil- adelphia. The winning skit was Tri Delta and Sig Ep ' s medley that incorporated their city with the homecoming theme. Michelle Estlund described her opinion of the their skit, " It was so professional. The music was great, the props were so unique, it was just remarkable! " The overall winners for Homecoming week were also announced with Alpha Delta Pi and Al- pha Tau Omega stealing first place hands down. Second place went to Kappa Alpha Theta and Pi Kappa Phi and third to Lambda Chi Alpha, Pi Beta Phi, Zeta Phi Beta and Alpha Phi Omega. Fol- lowing the competition was the presentation of the Homecoming court. Special guest Clara Moffit Howell, the first Homecoming Queen from 1948, aided in the pres- entation. After Phil Barco of Alumni Affairs presented the five young women and five young men on the court, he proudly announced Lilie Ale- xandre as Princess and Rob Boos as Chief. Comedian Richard Jeni then enthusiastically took over the program. Jeni, a much sought after headliner in clubs around the country, was recently honored as " Best Club Comedian " in the country by several hundred of his peers in a survey taken by Comedy USA Magazine. Jeni made appearances around the country at several other college concerts. Bruce Hornsby and The Range quickly followed Jeni and took the crowd by sur- prise playing songs entitled " Stander on the Mountain, " " Across the River " and his title song from his current al- bum " A Night on the Town. " The audience went wild when he took requests and played " The Way It Is. " Stacey Wagner comment- ed, " I didn ' t know he had that many songs out. His mu- sic was really great! I loved him.

The seleenon process is set up in such a way to distinguish which candidates represented the University academically and socially to exemplify the true Seminole spirit. The homecoming court contribut- ed to upholding this lasting tradition of outstanding stu- dents. The homecoming princess Lilie Alexandre, a senior marketing major is a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority, Lady Scalphunters, and the Garnet and Gold Girls. Alexandre described Florida State as a place of " pride, " and decided to apply for homecoming princess simply because " I love FSU. " Homecoming chief Rob Boos, a senior marketing ma- jor was a member of Kappa Alpha Order, Order of Ome- ga, Gold Key, Scalphunters, and the Student Alumni Foundation. Looking back at his Seminole experience, Boos felt his most significant contribution was his " leadership skills and moti- vational ability to make a dif- ference in every activity he was involved in. " Jennifer Shelton and Mi- chael D. Leeks were the first runners-up. Shelton was a senior business major, a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority, Seminole Ambassa- dors, Omicron Delta Kappa, Golden Key and the Garnet and Gold girls. Shelton said that her " experience has been very positive, enriching, and rewarding " during her four years here. One of her most memorable moments was working with Omega Psi Phi on a community project. Leeks, a senior electrical engineering major, was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. Order of Omega, Sigma Chi Iota, Omicron Delta Kappa, and served as the Pangreek council presi- dent. Leeks shared his belief with other loyal Seminole fans that " Florida State is one of the greatest universi- ties in the world. " He also said it was a place with " plenty of opportunities " to get involved in different or- ganizations. " I was fortunate, " Leeks said, " Everything I set out to do, I have done " . Other members of the homecoming court included Heather Allen, Jennifer Pier- tegrate with others. " She said that aside from academics, the thing she will take with her is " a lot of pride in the school and great memories. " Pierson, a senior public re- lations major, was a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. Gold Key, Order of Omega, and Lady Scalphunters. Pier- son decided to apply for the homecoming position be- cause " I have a deep root of pride in our school, and wanted to give something back because it has given me so much. " She was ecstatic when she found out she was selected, and felt it was a very " rewarding experience.

Allen enjoyed " being a part of the tradition and helping others get in- Key, Seminole Ambassadors, and the Garnet and Gold Girls. One of her greatest contributions to the univer- sity was orientating students. She said she was glad to " Have a hand in molding new students and letting them know the opportunities that lie ahead for them. " volved to become a part of Stiles expresses her appreci- the FSU community and in- ation to " faculty, friends, stu- dents and mostly to my fam- ily, I couldn ' t have done it without you " . McNeill, a senior business communications major, felt the University had that " down home feeling with great tradition and spirit. " " It is a large university, but the country brings in a lot of down to earth people, " he said. Some of his greatest memories are " cheering at the National Championship and my initiation to my fra- ternity. " McNeill is the for- mer cheerleading captain, president of Sigma Chi, a member of Scalphunters, and interfratemity council. Pakuris, a senior commu- nication and sociology major , said that " Florida State is a home away from home, and the individuality and close- ness among the people feels like home. " Pakuris enjoyed " helping other students ad- just to the FSU lifestyle through being an orientation leader and a resident assis- tant " . Looking back at his ex- perience, he said he has done everything he wanted to, and that " this has been the best four years of my life. " Vredenburg, a senior polit- ical science major, is a mem- ber of Alpha Tau Omega, Gold Key, Order of Omega, Scalphunters and the inter- fratemity council. After his experience here, he said that he felt " like a new man be- cause Florida State has such a broad range of culture and diversity, it teaches you more than book knowledge, but how to deal with everyone. " Vredenburg gratefully ex- pressed a " thank you to everyone for supporting me and being there when I need- ed you.

An air of victory and high spirits surrounded the well wishers. The Intramural Fields, lots behind Tully Gym, the Haskin Circus Complex and any other available spaces along Chieftain Way were the sites where alumni and students took up temporary residency. Tailgating parties have become a tradition for all Seminole fans, young and old. It was a time for alumni to gather and celebrate football mania. The most dedicated tailgaters arrived as early as 48 hours before a home game. With their vans, cars, and motor homes filled with food, alcohol and family, they partied all afternoon await- ing kickoff time. Diehard alumni traveled from all over Florida and Georgia to partake in these parties. Lois Post, an alumnae from the College of Business, drove from Atlanta for almost every home game to tailgate. " It ' s a great way to get my family excited about the game. There ' s something special about the way the fans show their support. I believe it shows through the team ' s success. It ' s a long, five hour drive, but it ' s worth it. " Wayne and Marsha Tate, active boosters for the past fourteen years, traveled from West Palm Beach before setting up permanent res- idency in Tallahassee. Wayne Tate said, " I come here every Saturday before a game, rain or shine. We ' ve had this particular spot (across from Tully Gym on Chieftian Way) for ten years. It ' s the positive atmosphere and winning team which makes us come back for more. " Most tailgaters prided themselves in showing hospitality towards opposing team ' s fans. The locals invited them to have a drink or something to eat. " We always invite people from the opposing team to join in our festivities. It ' s a gesture of kindness, " said alumni D.J. Wright. Catie McRae, an alumnae from the College of Communications, said there was an ulterior motive for their hospitable treatment, " We just want to make them feel better about losing. " Amy Shinn t 1.

ROYAL TRIBE RETURNS ' ears after graduation, : 5 " Seminole Royalty " _ continued to spread g ) e Spirit Across the hMd. Fortunately, the sec- ond ten year reunion helped to unite the royalty for the homecoming festivities. The remarkable idea of re- uniting " Seminole Royalty " was started by Susan Bates Turner, the 1976 homecom- ing princess. Turner said she " wanted to recognize the first queen Clara Moffit MacKay, and the other FSU Royalty members, " by inviting them back to share the memories with other former homecom- ing queens, princesses, and chiefs. With the support of Alumni Affairs, she was able to pull off the first royalty reunion in 1980, thus " perpetuating a tradition. " The 1975 Homecoming Prince and the current asso- ciate director of Alumni Af- fairs Phil Barco and Julie Flemming, the reunion chair- man, were the key people in coordinating the second re- union with help from Alumni Affairs and the Student Alumni Foundation. Flem- ming said she felt " very for- tunate to have been here dur- ing the time of the reunion, and able to work so close with it. Words could not de- scribe it; it was a wonderful experience. " Out of the 56 Royalty members, 41 returned to watch the crowning of the new princess and chief, Lilie Alexandre and Rob Boos. Among those was the first, 1948, Homecoming Queen Clara Moffit MacKay. MacKay had the honor of crowning Alexandre and Boos with their Indian head- dresses at the annual Pow- wow held in the Leon County Civic Center. MacKay took a moment to remember her crowning and said, " I was happy then, but every year it means so much more. " The Royalty members par- ticipated in homecoming ac- tivities planned by the Stu- dent Alumni Foundation, and the homecoming com- mittees. Many of them rode in the homecoming parade, despite the rain. They were also present at the annual " Grads Made Good " break- fast in the Oglesby Union Ballroom. The ceremony was held to honor graduates who have made special achieve- ments in their chosen careers. The award was presented by Omicron Delta Kappa, a na- tional collegiate leadership society. The three new honorees were Clyda S. Rent, Davis Gaines and Isabel W. Rodgers. Rent, the 1963 homecom- ing queen, is currently the president of the Mississippi University for Women and is the first female to be pres- ident of a public educational institution in Mississippi. She received her bachelors degree in 1964, her masters in 1966, and her doctorate degree in 1968, all at FSU in Sociology. Gaines, a musical theater actor, was honored for his wonderful dramatic perfor- mances. His most successful starring role was in the Broadway hit " The Phantom of the Opera. " One of his most recent successes was a new recording of Jerome Kerns 1924 musical " Sitting Pretty. " Gaines, a former FSU cheerleader, graduated cum laude in 1976 with a bachelor degree in theater. He said he was " thrilled to be back in an atmosphere full of love, warmth, and security, " and was glad he was able to give something back to the university. Rodgers graduated in 1945 from Florida State College for Women before it became a co-ed school. She earned a bachelor degree in English Literature, a Phi Beta Kappa key, a masters degree in po- litical science from the Uni- versity of Virginia, a masters degree in religion education from the Presbyterian School of Christian Education and a doctorate in theology and ethics from Duke University. Rodgers is a professor of ap- plied Christianity at Virgin- ia ' s Presbyterian School of Christian Education and the author of five study books for Presbyterians. She is listed in Who ' s Who in America, Out- standing Educators, Who ' s Who in American Religion, Personalities of the South, and the International Direc- tory of Scholars. Another distinguished guest was Vincent Morris Williams. Williams plays the part of Hampton on the oldest running soap opera, " The Guiding Light. " Wil- liams auditioned for a part in the soap opera, and received a three year contract with CBS, which launched his ca- reer. " Being a graduate from Florida State contributed to being the best I can be. You are really able to grow in any direction you choose here, " he said. Angela Buress 0 0 o o X SLIGER RETIRES lood of emotions iwept across the j ampus as the news ' he weight of one ' ciecisio n impacted the lives of thousands of people. Bernard F. Sliger, who had become a legend for bringing the institution to its highest level of achievements, was saying good-bye. At age 66, the tenth president of the uni- versity announced his retire- ment. " It ' s time for someone else to have the joy and the re- sponsibility of the office, " said the teary-eyed Sliger. Elected president on Feb- ruary 7, 1977, " Bemie, " as the students respectfully called him, led the university through many ups and downs. His accomplishments included creating tradition with the ever popular ice cream social, which Sliger first hosted in 1977. When Sliger was in office, enrollment grew by more than one third, an engineer- ing college was added, two world class super computers were acquired, 27 scholar chairs have been established or are in various stages of completion, and the univer- sity was selected by the Na- tional Science Foundation as the site for the new National High Magnetic Field Labratory. As his triumphant closing act, Sliger led the athletic de- partment to a 13 million dol- lar budget, and in September of 1 990, the Seminoles joined the Atlactic Coast Confer- ence. The fifteen years Sliger contributed will be remem- bered as a time of exciting accomplishment. " He is not only one of the most beloved presidents in the state uniersity system, but a remarkably strong lead- er, " said Joan Ruffier, a member of the Board of Re- gents Admiring students and fac- ulty agree that Sliger ' s great- est qualities include his easy going manner, his wonderful sense of humor, and his com- passsion for the university and the people attending it. " He is more accesible at times than many people with- in my own department, and it ' s great to be able to start at the top if I have a specific problem, " said Charles Mar- relli. Student Senate Presi- dent Pro Tempore. According to Sliger, his greatest accomplishment in- volved the faculty and stu- dents. He cited the higher quality and the diversity of the student body and faculty in recent years, but it is the cooperation between the two of which he is most proud. " It has been my privilege and pleasure to serve as pres- ident of FSU. I have enjoyed the friendship and support of the university family and its many constituencies, " said Sliger. His charisma and energy have created a strong bond between him and the student body. " It ' s nice to know that somebody who loves the uni- versity, and is willing to give his energies in order to ad- vance the state system, is in charge, " senior Will Mulligan said, " We will all miss him. " Indeed, the entire univer- isty will feel the absence of our president and friend. His honesty, shown by his expres- siveness and concern is gen- uine and rare. Replacement does not seem possible. " How could anyone re- place good ol ' Bemie? " said graduate student Kyle Colle. " It will take the university years before finding someone with spunk like Bemie. That someone else will most likely be a professor, ac- cording to Sliger. Throughout the year, various applicants were interviewed for the presidential position. The ZULMA CRESPO Students agree that whoever is selected will have their work cut out for them. It is not too difficult to fill Sliger ' s position, but no one could take his place in the hearts of the students and faculty. Sliger plans to return to teach economics after tak- ing a year off to do a little fishing with his wife, Gret- ta, in their summer home in Trout Creek, Michigan. Krista L. Marino and Rachel Priest .

Since his first years as president, Bernard F. Sliger has treated his students to free ice cream and a day to get to know their president while expressing their thoughts and concerns. " The whole reason I started having these socials was to meet my students and hear their ideas. I feel it ' s very important because I didn ' t have a chance to do it when I was in school. " Students were filled with mixed emotions when they heard the news of Bernie ' s retirement. " When I heard he was leaving it made me sad. I don ' t think they ' ll ever find someone to completely fill his shoes, " stated sophomore Wendy Lincks. Jeff Rosen, a junior math major, summed it all up, " President Sliger reminds me of Papa Smurf, and I just can ' t imagine the Smurfs without their Papa.

" Though the station was not the first at the university, it was the only radio station on campus. V89 ' s main goal was to serve as a musical alter- native for listeners. During its first year, V89 played mainly rock music. But as people ' s music needs changed, so did the station ' s format. Alternative music be- came the focus of the station with an emphasis on new re- leases. Special programming was created for other musical tastes — such as the four hour metal show hosted by " The Vampire " a.k.a. Spen- cer Kuvin on Wednesdays, " The Time Machine " classic rock show on Saturday morn- ings and the local music show that ran for two hours on Monday nights. Though funded by the Stu- dent Government Associa- tion, V89 is " apolitical — we only play music " Program Director Chris White said. V89 is public service oriented, it educates the stu- dents in the radio commu- nications field. Some of V89 ' s staff have gone on to work with such media giants as CNN and ES- PN. Two " workshops " were open to students. The Radio Workshop was avaliable for up to three credit hours, which equals nine working hours and was a S U grade. The Advanced Radio Work- shop, known as Practicum was open to department heads only. It served as an intensive study of the work- ing of a radio station. There were also many volunteer po- sitions on the staff-which numbered close to 100 stu- dents. " It is important for Talla- hassee to recognize V89 is a real radio station trying to make a difference and not a joke or some fly by-night op- eration, " White said. V89 was operated by stu- dents but it was also a pro- fessional and organized work place. Using the FCC regual- tions as guidelines, the sta- tion censored itself and the music it played. Like other radio stations, it received free promotional copies of the newest music. The station also received copies of music by local bands. Since 1989, V89 ' s listening precentage grew from 2.2 percent to 6.2 percent. This jump showed a drastic in- crease in audience and pro- gramming effectiveness. Among V89 ' s goals were upgrading their transmission power, getting more involved in the local music scene and finding a niche in the radio jungle. During the spring se- mester, the station was oc- cupied with geological and environmental studies to de- termine the effects of the boosted power on the sur- rounding area. The goal was to have their power boosted to 3000 watts, up from 300 watts. Regarding the local music scene, V89 hoped to build a rapport with both communi- ty bands and various record companies and hoped to help some of the bands get record contracts. The search for a niche in the radion jungle has existed since V89 first came on the air. It is a search for an audience and respect that is coming closer and closer to an end. Chris Dorsey a.k.a. " Ben the Rat " and " Rattus Rat- tus, " said, " I could DJ even if there were only two listeners out there. " Kelly Christy SEMINOLES GET A f ' f ' Ih W Vw i K v L k3 O id you ever get the munchies between class only to realize that you had no cash, you left your check book at home and the only ATM machine that takes your card is out of or- der? (Which was okay, be- cause it would have taken you about six hours, waiting to get to the machine and by that time you ' d have missed your next class.) This fall, students received a reprieve from the " cash-crunch " with the development of the Sem- inole Access Program. The program, designed by Ed Gonzales and Bill Norwood provided a number of new conveniences described by Gonzales as, " a portfolio of services. " Approximately 500 new students received their Ac- cess card during orientation. Resembling the appearance of a credit card, the Access card runs a declining debit balance system. Students started their account by de- positing a minimum balance of $100 and added to it as needed. Students then used the card to purchase a variety of goods and services around campus. " It ' s just like a credit card, only better. There are so many different ways you can use it, " said freshman Toby Siebnik. The card could be used at Bill ' s Bookstore, the Athletic Ticket Office, the Comer Grocery Store, The University Bookstore, Park- ing Services, The Union Computer Store, The Club Downunder, The Trading Post, Wild Pizza, Golden Key Restraunt, and the Uni- versity Meal Plan. The card was also used to provide easier payment for long distance phone service, cable television, voice mail, and call waiting to students living on campus. Card holder Jennifer Bucher said, " For some peo- ple, the program is good be- cause money is automatically deducted from your account once a purchase has been made. However they haven ' t worked out the " bugs " in the system yet. " Some complications result- ed from the two complex computer systems that in- terfaced with the Office of Telecommunications and the Seminole Access Office. However, Marcia Morris, business manager of financial operations in the Office of Telecommunications hoped that the system would be working perfectly by next fall. " We are making prog- ress, " she said, " Things are running smoothly now. " During the spring semester a new service was added to the card, fee payment. By simply filling out a form in- dicating the number of hours and card number, fees could be charged directly to stu- dents ' Access accounts, avoiding long fee payment lines. Organizers of the program hoped to extend it in the fall of 1991 to include all stu- dents. They also hoped to combine the student ID card, Access card, and meal plan all into one. The new card would include a picture and or non-visible ultra-violet bar code. All information on the card would be stored in a computer ' s hard disk.

Many students felt the power of music-whether they were remembering fun times, feeling alone, or just mel- lowed out, music affected them. Local bands were a part of the music in student ' s lives. No matter what type of music they played, from Rap to Reggae or from Heavy Metal to Hardcore Progres- sive, these bands touched people with their lyrics and melodies. The members of these bands had varying back- grounds. One band might have contained an interna- tional affairs major, a busi- ness major, a music major, and a theater major. These varyi ng backgrounds, rather than detracting from the band, made it an interesting whole. Although the members en- joyed the experience of play- ing for themselves, they en- joyed the response they of the audience just as much. Pat- rick Miller, of Innocent Splendor, felt that " if I can inspire music in others by playing in a band, then that is enough. " It was difficult to start a band anywhere. In Tallahas- see, the place most for most bands to begin was The Club Downunder. Smack Leveau got its first taste of public performance when they played at The Downunder at the beginning of the year. From that point many bands moved on to play at Grand Finale, Bullwinkle ' s, Koko- mo ' s. The Warehouse and The Late Night Library. The reason that the bands played was explained by the lead singer of Smack Leveau, Suzanne Sexton. She said that , " all of us have strong feelings for music and wish to extend it beyond ourselves to others. " The main motive most certainly wasn ' t to make money. Usually local bands made enough money to cover their expenses, such as equipment and fees. Playing in a band was def- initely not an " all play and no work " situation. These local bands were mostly made up of students " or soon to be returning students, " as some members of The Shatter Posts contended. Long hours of practice were squeezed be- tween work and school. The audience appreciated the efforts of these bands- most of the time. Jennifer Reid, a freshman, felt that " the bands seem to have a hard driving force behind them that generates a great atmosphere for their perfor- mances. " As the audience lis- tened, tapped, and danced to the music on the stage, they felt " somehow a part of the music and a part of everyone in the room, " freshman Michelle Petrin said. For the bands, the energy and time spent was all worth it. During the brief time they are on stage, they were able to share one of the most impor- tant influences in their lives with hundreds of people. 69th Street bassist, Hugo Rodriguez, said " it ' s fun be- cause it gives you a great rush, but it is a lot of work. " Local bands have a lot to express to the students. Whether it ' s through heavy- thrashing-throbbing tunes or folky melodies that stir the emotions of the audience, the bands touch them inside in the way only music can.

BOBBY BREAKS 200 hen the Universi- ty hired Robert Cleckler Bowden " " Jj ' i football coach in 19 15; The school was hoping to breathe new life into a dor- mant football program. Little did they know that fourteen years later Bowden would turn the program into a pe- rennial national title con- tender and take his place among the game ' s greatest coaches with his 200th career victory. With a 42-3 victory over Louisiana State on October 27, Bowden became only one of 22 coaches in college foot- ball history to win as many as 200 games. For Bowden, completing that 200th win was probably more difficult than succeeding in the pre- vious 199 games. The semi- noles dropped back-to-back road games at Miami and Au- burn in his first two attempts at this career high. ' Tt doesn ' t seem like a milestone to me when there ' s a guy out there (Eddie Rob- inson of Grambling Univer- sity) with more than 350 wins, so it doesn ' t mean much, " said Bowden after the triumph. Victory number 200 came in the 277th game of a 25 year career as a head football at three universities; Samford, West Virginia, and Florida State. For most college football coaches, reaching this goal would be something to savor. Most expected to see a soak- ing wet victor commemorat- ing his achievement with a victory ride on his team ' s shoulders to the fifty yard line. For Bowden, the victory ride ended only seconds after the games final play. Kirk Carruthers chased L.S.U. Quarterback, Jesse Daigle, out of bounds on the game ' s last play, and after a ques- tionable hit, a five-minute free-for-all began, souring what could have been a mem- orable time in Bowden ' s ca- reer. " I don ' t know what hap- pened, but I know it shouldn ' t have, " said Edgar Bennett. Not even the senseless scuffle could darken what has been a bright career for the tribe ' s all-time winningest coach. He started his coaching ca- reer in 1959 at Samford Uni- versity, in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. His first five wins, all shutout vic- tories, were a telling-tale of things to come. With nine victories in thir- teen bowl games, including a 8-2-1 record at FSU, Bowden ' s 73 percent winning average ranks as college foot- ball ' s all-time best. He joined a very prestigious list of suc- cessful coaches. Only Paul " bear " Bryant, Joe Paterno, and John Vaught have ex- ceeded his record in total bowl victories. Bowden listed an 18-14 win at Nebraska as his all time favorite victory, " You just don ' t beat Nebraska at Nebraska, but we did. " Vic- tories over LSU in 1979, Florida in 1987, and Miami in 1989 place high on his list as well. Bowden, who recently signed a lifetime contract to coach at the university, ex- pects to keep coaching well into the 1990 ' s.

For the fail semester, Kellum residents raised over $300 through recycling. j ,- arah Pagan proves that it ,only takes a little effort to u r make a big difference. ' ' ' ' ?? ' This bin in the Diffenbaugh buifdirig a nd others helped to make campus recycling virtually effortless. AWARENESS rotecting our natural resources has long «?B been a leading con- ' cern for environ- mentalists. Now students are beginning to take action and do their part to protect the environment for future gen- erations. " We need to worry more about the future we ' re providing for our children rather than what ' s conve- nient for us now, " Angela Foote said. Students have come to re- alize that the negligence of past generations has left them with the problem of working out a solution to save the planet. The need to find a solution is of utmost impor- tance if we are to have a plan- et for the future. " We need to stop the production of non- biodegradable items or any others that cause damage to the environment " Junior Jennifer Hillary said. And Rob Rogers added that we need " to stop the de- struction of the Amazon rainforest. " One way that students, as well as many cities and states, have found to help the en- vironment is to recycle. Re- cycling is one of the easiest ways to save landfill space and to conserve our natural resources. Students living on campus began to visibly do their part with recycling. Most of the residence halls on campus placed recycling bins for aluminum cans and news- papers in their lobbies. So- rorities also did their part in recycling by placing can bins in their houses. Provided the means and the knowledge, people have become more aware of what can be done to save energy, money, and the environment. " We need to teach everyone what is wrong with the en- vironment, " Jerry Arocha said. If people are aware of the problems with the envi- ronment and realize that there are practical solutions, they will be more willing to help. One group on campus, the Rorida Public Interest Re- search Group, encouraged students to become environ- mentally aware by providing them with information on re- cycling and the environment. FPIRG was comprised of stu- dents who were willing to do more than just talk about en- vironmental issues. One of FPIRG ' s priorities was to af- fect legislation at the state level. Their next campaign was to get support for the Bottle Bill. This bill would place a five cent return on all bottles and cans. It was de- signed to encourage state wide recycling and reduce the burdens being placed on our land fills. To meet the requirements of the Solid Waste Manage- ment Act of 1988, which re- quired each Florida county to reduce total solid waste by 30 percent by 1994, 30 sets of three containers to hold glass, newspapers and cans were placed throughout campus and 500 boxes were put in offices for paper disposal. As of December there were also plans to place concrete re- cycling containers outside several major buildings all over campus. Though concern has in- creased for the environment, there was still a long way to go. Americans produce 7.6 billion tons of industrial waste and 160-180 million tons of municipal solid waste annually according to the Oc- tober 1988 Report to Con- gress: Solid Waste Disposal in the United States . But with groups such as FPIRG and students who are willing to get involved, our planet will have a future. Michelle Lacerte and Kelly Christy FOOD FOR uring the Thanks- I giving season, usu- ally a time of plenty, the Florida Public Interest Research Group brought at- tention to those who could only dream about a huge Thanksgiving dinner. FPIRG focused on the issue of world hunger as well as local hunger and homelessness in Talla- hassee in November through a Global Dinner. The dinner was also sponsored by the Student Government Associ- ation, the Center for Partic- ipant Education, Hillel Jew- ish Center, and the Emergency Care Help Organ- ization. " With the exception of a large scale nuclear war, no other type of disaster even comes close to hunger as an immediate threat to human life. Between 13 and 20 mil- lion people die each year from hunger and starvation, " said Laura Somerville, co- coordinator of the Global Dinner. The general purpose of the dinner was to make people aware of the awesome problem of hunger and homelessness that exists not only in some far away coun- try, but also in their own back yards. Those that attended the dinner were treated to a unique menu choice. Once they had purchased their ticket, they were handed a box filled with colored squares and told to close their eyes and take a chance at the " luck of the draw. " There were three different colors — green, orange, and purple. The green ticket entitled its holder to a full three course meal. This represented the seven percent of the world ' s population which has plenty of food and shelter. The or- ange ticket brought its holder a meal of beans and rice. These holders represented 33 percent of the world ' s pop- ulation which just " gets by. " The purple ticket holders were pointed in the direction of a newspaper covered floor between the tables and the speak ing platform. Their din- ner consisted of rice that they ate with their fingers. This group represents the other 60% of the world population that hungers each day. The dinner ' s program also included three speakers, two poets and one musician to entertain and educate the au- dience. County Commission- er, Gary Yordon, amused the audience with anecdotes of his career and efforts to make Tallahassee a better place to live. Yet, underlying his jo- vial tone was the seriousness of the subject he was address- ing. The Tallahassee director of ECHO, Bob Sminkey, so- bered the crowd with the re- alization that the hungry and the homeless are normal peo- ple not some strange breed of animal. Speaking with a strong, but sad voice, he re- lated stories of the understaf- fed conditions at ECHO and the difficulty of meeting everyone ' s needs. Dr. Jenice Rankins, an assistant profes- sor of nutrition, gave an in- depth view of the horrors of hunger, malnutrition, and poverty — educating the au- dience of the menace of WHIT ELFNER world hunger. Tina Abich, one of the co- ordinators of the dinner, felt that " the Global Dinner was a wonderfully creative way of getting people interested and aware in a problem that has been around as long as hu- manity has existed. " The din- ner, which was inspired by the United States Public In- terest Research Group , raised over $500 in ticket sales for local and world hun- ger organizations. There was also a donation box that filled as the audience depart- ed. Through the powerful im- pact of experience, those that attended found that hunger is very close to home. Leanne Lewis, a freshman and a member of FPIRG, felt that " the people who made an ef- fort to attend the Global Din- ner left feeling a bit more thankful for the food they eat everyday and usually never appreciate.

College plans were laid aside and there were many unsu: goodbyes. As the deadline drew closer the possibility of w; became a major topic of conversation. Students constantly kej an eye on the news waiting for new developments. The mornii of Jan. 12 many students attended the peace rally at the Vietna Memorial only to come home and discover that Congress hi voted to allow the president to enforce the UN deadline. TI countdown continued and many students were glued to CNN tl night of the deadline. Everyone held their breath wondering war would be avoided. It was not to be so.

I was afraid that if I went to sleep — I ' d get a phone call telling me that he was dead, " freshman Cheryl Elllis said. Almost everywhere students turned, there was news about the war. On the editorial pages of the Flambeau, the Democrat and all over campus people expressed their feelings about the war. Support groups were formed by the Women ' s Center and Thagard Health Center to help the students deal with the pres- sures of war. Also, the Center for Participant Education and V89 held discussions and debates on the war and students held rallies supporting and protesting against the war. But on February 25, their debates began to come to a rapid close. General Norman Schwarzkopf and President Bush ini- tiated a U.S. led ground war. One-hundred hours later, Feb. 27, the war was over, Iraq was defeated and a cease fire declared. Soldiers and students were not the only casu- alties, even though the first reported death was an FSU graduate and many student reservists had to put their lives on hold to go and fight. The environment was also a casualty of war. Sci- entists might never know the impact that oil-well fires in Kuwait and the oil spill in the Med- iterranean will have. " The environmental loss in the Gulf is in- calulable. This is the largest environmental dis- aster ever experienced, " Rebecca Stephens, en- vironmentalist and faculty member, said. The Gulf War became just another page in the history books, but to the students that spent hours watching CNN, listening to the radio, and reading every newspaper they could find, this war was a part of their lives forever.

" The troops were faced with get- ting their lives back in shape, dealing with the frustration of not getting home quickly enough, and then the culture shock of going from fox hole to front porch in a brief period of time, " Figley said. Figley provided the service through the end of the war. ZULMA CRESPO BERT fie weather, the parking problems, the football season, registration — all typical topics for conversation at the university as the fall semester began. What was not typical was war, as a subject for conversation, or as reality. But it became reality when the trauma of the conflict hit Tallahassee, FSU and the . , rest of the country. A M ' For Dr. Charles Figley, director of the university ' s Marriage and % J Family Therapy Center, the anxiety and distress the families of the X M m. mobilized troops were experiencing was nothing new. " We knew from working with Vietnam veterans and from research r J about that war, that the troops ' main concern is for their families, " I Figley said. " Another of the things we learned was that the families M t, y suffered extreme stress because they didn ' t know what was happening to their loved ones. We knew we needed to have -im W " W resources available, for counseling and other needs, for the l l Hj dependents who were left here. " I r B rVi Tallahassee families left behind when Operation Desert Shield (later named Operation Desert Storm) began had multiple problems — problems not often faced by military families. This conflict marked the first time, for instance, that single parents, or both parents, or the female spouse in a family were called to active duty. Beginning in December 1990, the Family Therapy and Counseling Center became a one-stop referral source for those with loved ones in the mid-East. In addition to counseling, which was available at the center or through home visits, the center provided consultation on subjects ranging from taxes to legal help, and, through the Red Cross, loans for families who needed financial help. " We set up a corps of volunteers, mostly students, who could be a facilitator or friend or ombudsman, or anything a family needed, " Figley said. " If they needed a baby sitter, or someone to wait for a repairman to come, or someone to work out a ride to work while the car was being repaired — there was someone there. " The Mid-East crisis, as it was often called, brought into sharp focus an issue not faced in previous wars: women serving on active duty. " Whether we like it or not, that is, women in the military, we can never again suggest that women can ' t meet the challenge of military service. Women don ' t suffer as much from post traumatic stress disorder as often as men, because women will take care of themselves by engaging their feelings and talking to someone about their anxieties. " Figley elaborated on another problem unique to the Mid- East crisis — male spouses being left in charge of home and family when a female reservist is shipped overseas. " The husbands ' problems were really different, " he said. " They were ill prepared to manage a household, felt out of their element and incompetent, and oi course our society has never made it a priority for men to juggle career and home the way that women are expected to do. Once the cease-fire was declared in late February, Figley and the staff at the center prepared for the return of the troops and the adjustments they and theii families would have to make. Not all of the troops, of course, or all of the families experienced such adjustments, but some did. " The troops were faced with getting theii lives back in shape, dealing with the frustration of not getting home quickly enough, and then the culture shock of going from fox hole to front porch in a brie) period of time, " Figley said. Figley explained that some of the greatest changes may have been in the families left behind. Children grev physically, emotionally and in assuming responsibility; spouses took care o] whatever needed to be taken care of ano gained a deep sense of accomplishment foi having done so. Then, when the war waii over, the family had to reorganize ano welcome the trooper back. " A further adjustment often occurred an part of the expectation of homecoming! since each person had an idea of what the} wanted the reunion to be like, " Figley said explaining that the expectation and realitj are not always the same. Fortunately for the troops and thai) families, support from the center iii available for as long as they need it, even i; problems were not apparent right away. program called Operation Open Hous designated county schools as resourcf centers with help available for Deser Storm veterans and their families, as wel as for Vietnam veterans and dependents. Heat, parking, football and telephom registration will return to the forefront ii the fall of 1991. Hopefully, war will be i memory and not a headline ...

The Artist Series carried on a tradition with a rich his- tory. One of the first major acts to contribute to the tra- dition was John Phillip Sou- sa. Sousa and his big brass bands delighted millions across America with their rousing march numbers. He and his bands performed in the series in the first official season of 1921-22 and re- turned two years later to per- form again. This and many other artistic repeat perfor- mances testify to the energy and ambition of the pro- gram ' s planners as well as the enthusiasm of the audiences. The tradition of inviting well-known performers to the Florida State College for Women, as the school was then known, actually began in 1911-12 academic year. The Royal Welsh Choir, among others, came to Tal- lahassee that year and enter- tained local audiences with their skilled artistry. In the 1915-16 season, the re- nowned Leopold Godowsky, a master of classical piano, also performed at the behest of the college. The same year, students of the Florida State College for Women invigor- ated this important tradition with a simple request. Their request was that the admin- istration charge the students a fee to fund the program that would become the Artist Se- ries. The series flourished in the early years under the watch- ful eye of Ella Scoble Op- perman, dean of the School of Music from 1911 to 1 944. During her tenure, the Artist Series booked many first rate acts, ranging from Japanese drama to the Don Cossack Russian Male Chorus. Pablo Casals, perhaps the foremost cellist of the 20th century, came to Tallahassee during the 1924-25 season. Dean Opperman scored another musical coup when Vladimir Horowitz, one of the finest pianists ever to play the clas- sical repertory, performed in the series in the 1934-35 sea- son. Many of the early perform- ers braved adverse condi- tions in making their dates with the program. In 1911, the trip from Thomasville, Georgia to Tallahassee could consume an entire day and the best efforts of a pair of strong horses. Obviously, Tallahassee was not always an easy town to get to. This season, pianist George Shear- ing and the Martha Graham Dance Company found that conveniences like the Talla- hassee airport and Interstate 10 sped their trips into and out of the state capital. The return of the Martha Graham Dance Company re- flected the rich tradition of the Artist Series. Graham first performed here in the 1931-32 academic year, and Curtain Falls (CONTINUED ) her dance companies have performed four more times, including this season ' s show. Other repeat performers in- cluded violinist Itzhak Perlman and mime- extraordinaire Marcel Marceau. Pablo Casals also made his way back in 1 963 to conduct the Chorus and Or- chestra. The School of Music awarded tht cellist an hon- orary degree on that occa- sion. Times changed, though, and the Series fell behind. Fi- nances became a problem for the program, which began to run up deficits in the late 80 ' s. Projected shortfalls for the 1991-92 season called for a loss of $26,000. Combined with the increased activity in at the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center, the deficts proved fatal to the program. Dr. Gerry Gilmer, assis- tant to the president for pub- lic affairs, who oversaw the program since 1985, cited low subscription rates, but indicated that the Artist Se- ries was not the only such program to suffer this fate. " Arts are hurting all over. We ' ve felt the recession here, " Gilmer said. " Since the Artist Series is now self- supporting, the loss of rev- enues dealt the program a critical blow.

Another lead physicist, Robert Schrieffer, left Cali- fornia to take the position of head theoretical physicist at the lab. " It ' s a fantastic ex- peprience. It was difficult to leave the University of Ca- lifornia at Santa Barbra, but there are bigger, better things if you only open your eyes, " Schrieffer said. The magnetic lab was " bigger and better " than oth- er scientific endeavors, ac- cording to Schrieffer, because both the state and federal governments were supporting it with grants. He said getting both state and federal fund- ing for science projects was difficult. Innovation Park, a facility south of the university ' s cam- pus, was said to be the prob- able site for the magnetic lab. Naturally, many researchers hoped to use the magnet center. As well as " on- campus " users, many " off- campus " users such as Gen- eral Electric and Chevron were also granted permission to use the lab. " I think it ' s a good day for Florida State and a good day for the system. It indicates the ability for Florida State to attract world-class scientists and students, " President Ber- nard Sliger said. The National Science Foundation was expected to spend between $60 and $70 million on the lab during the first five years. The state of Florida added to this sum and pledged to create work- ing positions for 54 people. The lab was a joint project of Florida State, the Univer- sity of Florida and Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. Massachusetts Institute President, Paul E. Gray, is- sued a statement requesting the National Science Foun- dation board to reconsider its decision. However, the deci- sion stood firm.

ZULMA CRESPO ACADEMIC 45 n ■ I H 1 !■ -%M PRODUCTION PROVIDES Recognition Many students de- sire recognition for the hard work that they do in school. Imag- ine that a masterpiece con- ceived and nurtured by a stu- dent could be seen by thousands of people. Would that be appropriate recogni- tion for a student ' s hard work and dedication? The College of Communication thinks it was and it is for that reason, and many others, that Sem- inole Productions was creat- ed. Seminole Productions was initiated in 1987 in order to provide additional funds for the media production depart- ment. This nonprofit organ- ization grew into a full- fledged production outfit, catering to students who de- sired to move into fields such as theater, media perfor- mance and media produc- tion. Seminole Productions provided students with a pro- fessional working environ- ment, as well as hands-on ex- perience with state of the art equipment. The suite was housed in the ground floor production center of the Dif- fenbaugh Building on cam- pus. Narration and on- camera talent were other op- portunities for students as well. The opportunities were available, but where did the recognition come in? Semi- nole Productions answered that question with ease. Stu- dents had a chance to gain recognition through their hard work by actually becom- ing a part of a statewide broadcast called Seminole a Uprising. Seminole Productions spe- cialized in covering athletics and Seminole Uprising was just one weekly narrative that showed highlights showcas- ing the tribe ' s football, bas- ketball and baseball teams. Other sport shows included The Mike Martin Show and The Marynell Meadors Show, both starring their respective head coaches. It was here that the stu- dents could be creative and show their talent. Students had the chance to prepare a feature stories or other pro- ductions that were shown throughout the show. The process entailed gathering interviews, shoot- ing footage and writing script. Once this was done a student would piece to- gether the creation by editing in a state of the art in- structional facility. This fa- cility was equipped with a Betacam SP post-production suite complete with satellite feed, digital video effects and hi-resolution graphics with 3- D animation capability. Once the feature story was completed, the students had the satisfaction of watching their creation televised. Sen- ior Seminole Productions member Tom Block recalled the first feature story he did for Seminole Uprising and the way he felt when he saw it broadcasted. " I felt very good.

It was something the University ' s Sports Infor- mation Director and host of The Mike Martin Show Wayne Hogan called " invaluable. " It was the ex- perience that the students gained. " The experience is as good as any class or textbook. There is no substitute for what experience brings, " Wayne Hogan said. Students could also have the satisfaction of knowing that they could give the gar- net and gold something in re- turn for the experience earned. Head basketball coach Pat Kennedy said that the broadcasts Seminole Pro- ductions produced helped his program. " Any type of exposure leads to awareness of the sport. It brings in fans and increases the knowledge of the game, and fan support and interest is what it is all about, " Kennedy said. Students that participated in Seminole Productions had excellent opportunities to gain experience, recognition and a sense of giving some- thing back to the university. All the while students had the chance to grow in the fields that would hopefully carry them beyond the realm of the college experience.

" Al- though he intended to stay only one year, he soon fell in love with the college and community atmosphere and decided to make Tallahassee his permanent home. Once settled, he began to expand his musical abilities. He gave much to the school by serving on committees, being a model faculty figure and even writing the school ' s fight song. Wright began his educa- tion at Butler University and from there went to Indiana University where he received his master ' s degree in music. Later, he studied at Colum- bia where h e received the equivalent to a doctorate in music. After leaving Columbia, Wright went on to be an Air Force pilot in World War I for three years. The experi- ence spawned the love he has for WWI memorabilia. Over the years he has collected a library on " WWI in the Air, " and many war replica air- crafts. When Wright completed his duties as a pilot, he went on to pursue a career in mu- sic. His credits included play- ing with the Tommy Dorsey a T f I lommie " Wright, as his friends call him, has a special personal and professional interest in the life of George Gershwin. Wright travels the country performing Gershwin tunes. Orchestra, teaching at Brook- lyn College, working as a staff pianist for NBC, writing mu- sic for CBS, working for Kraft Television Theater, and working as a music con- sultant in Hollywood. He did all of this before coming to the university at the request of the dean of the school of music. Once here, Wright began teaching music classes. He was most commonly known for teaching Introduction to Music History, the longest running course in the history of the university. Not only did he teach classes, but found time to pur- sue a career as a concert pianist. As a concert pianist, he wanted to do something origi- nal. He got the original idea he was looking for when he saw peo- ple play greats such as Mark Twain. " No one had ever done this for a musician before, " Wright said, and soon after he began writing a script in which he portrayed George Gerschwin, a world renown pianist. He tried his idea on local audiences and before he knew it things took off. He was soon booked all over the country to perform his por- trayal of Gerschwin. Wright fondly recalled, " I ' ve trav- eled everywhere. From Mich- igan to Miami and LA to New York. I love to travel and try to take my family After serving on the ath- letic committee and writ- ing the school fight song, I finally was recognized as a letterman like I always wanted to be. " -Thomas Wright Mies IVORIES (CONTINUED) with me as often as possible. " Wright ' s family has played an important part in his life. His wife, Rosalinda, is a graduate student teaching Spanish while working on her doctorate. He has also been blessed with many daughters of whom he spoke of fondly. " I love to play and have fun with my girls, " he said. He enjoyed his family traveling with him by plane and in their family van. He said, " I keep the Celica just to keep up my image. " Wright has served as a very valuable member of the school ' s faculty since he ar- rived. He has served on prac- tically every major commit- tee, including the steering committee of the faculty sen- ate, he was chairman of the Artist Series, a member of the Athletic Committee, and a Chapter Adviser for Phi Del- ta Theta for six years. Not ony has he been on several committees, but has also received many presti- gious awards, including such honors as the 1988 Panhel- lenic Professor of the Year and Oglesby ' s Award for Fac- ulty Man of the Year. He was chosen as one of the Out- standing Educators of Amer- ica, was inducted into Om- icron Delta Kappa and Gold Key, and was made an hon- orary letterman. Wright told of how becom- ing an honorary letterman meant a great deal to him " I was never very athletic and was always envious of those who were. So after serving on the athletic committee for six years and writing the school fight song I finally was rec- ognized as a letterman, like I always hoped to be. " When asked how the school ' s fight song came about he reflected, " In the early days when you went to football games you heard FSU words to the tune of No- tre Dame ' s fight song. Doug Alley, a student at the time, put a poem in the Flambeau with hopes that someone could put his words to music and come up with a fight song. I immediately went to my studio. The following Sat- urday it was played at the game, and soon after that Student Government adopt- ed it as the school ' s official fight song. " This teacher and performer said he has many years ahead of him at FSU. " I ' ll keep teaching as long as my health permits and I feel that I ' m teaching effectively and do- ing a good job. " He said that the earliest he will consider retiring is 2005. Tricia Timmons ZULMA CRESPO Wright ' s music history classes, MUH 2011 and MUH 2012, are among the most popular on campus. He said that he will continue to teach as long as his health and the uni- versity permits, hopefully at least until the year 2005. ZULMA CRESPO Whether it be a musical example from Mozart or merely a request from his students, Wright plays the pi- ano quite often for his students during class.

Dr. Walters came to the Uni- versity in 1988 to teach and soon found herself putting to- gether a preschool to give her students a practicum. " Children are a contradic- tion to conventional wis- dom, " Walters said, " so learning the textbook infor- mation is important and it establishes the necessary fun- damentals, but the hands-on experience gained in actually working with toddlers in a su- pervised environment is vi- tal. " Dr. Walters ' program was the result of simple network- ing. She called a few friends with children and soon ac- quired a waiting list of ex- cited parents hoping to get their children into the pre- school. This was not just a learning experience for stu- dents, but also for parents and children. General lesson plans were followed but each child received specialized at- tention because there existed a one to one ratio between students and children. Parents also got to see how their children interacted with peers. According to Walters, children at this age experi- enced stranger anxiety and separation anxiety from their parents. To work around po- tential problems, the pre- school was equipped with ob- servation booths so the parents could watch how their children acted and re- acted Other advantages for the parents were that they got to see new and different ways of dealing with their children and by participating in the preschool they entered into a sort of parental support group. The preschool was staffed by University students taking Dr. Walters ' classes. Each Monday, a classroom lecture was given and on Wednes- days the children arrived for an hour and a half of learning and fun. For the first two weeks of each semester, Walters delved ex- tensively into health and safety rules with her stu- dents. Before the toddlers arrived on Wednesday the class went around putting small things into a " choke tube " and if it fit, that ob- ject was discarded, for the safety of the children. During these valued meet- ing times students grew and learned together. A small im- pressionable child was given a firmer foundation with which to grow and a knowl- edge hungry student was giv- en the practical experience needed to successfully handle the monumental task of help- ing to develop a small mind. " I live for the time I spend with the children, it ' s the highlight of my week, " Dr. Walters said.

Sound familiar? Bring back special childhood memories of seeing clowns, trapeze art- ists and high-flying acts at the circus? Once again, those memories could be experi- enced with Florida State ' s own forty-three year tradi- tion, the Flying-High Circus. The Flying-High Circus was founded by Jack Haskins in 1947, around the time that the university became coed. He saw the circus as a good way for men and women to interact in an athletic activ- ity. The circus turned out to be a great success and con- tinued to grow. Students from all walks of university life were repre- sented in the circus. Some took the class for course cred- it, while others joined simply to be involved in an extra- curricular activity. " My first semester here I rode the bus around campus. The bus often passed by the circus lot and I would see people practicing. It really in- terested me. My friend went out for the circus and I de- cided to go with him. The people were great so I decid- ed to join myself, " Mike Draayon said. The circus had a home show and a traveling show.

The trav- eling show, which performed year round, consisted of the twenty-five to thirty most committed and talented members. The traveling show ventured cross-country dur- ing the year. Rick Finch com- mented, " We ' ve performed all over Florida and most of the southeast. Every summer we go to Callaway Gardens, in Georgia, and run a rec- reation camp for kids, and at the same time do eight per- formances a week. It ' s tiring, but a very rewarding expe- rience in the end. " Being a part of the circus in- volved much prac- tice. During a nor- mal week, the circus lot was open five days a week from 10a.m.- 6p.m. However, as showtime drew near, the circus lot stayed open much longer. " There is no set practice time, " Finch said, " but as performance time draws near, the rehearsals be- come more and more fre- quent and intense. In the end, it ' s worth it. An act that gets enthusiasm from the crowd reassures me that the hard work has paid off. " The time spent together practicing and preparing for the show proved to be well worth the effort.

I cs PROFESSORS MAKE BIG Discoveries ' ' Part of the drive is to find what interests students about science and make it available to them. This is our little bit to do just that. -Dr. William Parker Dinosaur bones and cancer treating drugs are items ex- pected to be found in a fa- mous research labratory. But students were able to find these things in the universi- ty ' s own facilities. Dr. Wil- liam Parker and Professor Robert Holton were two uni- versity reasearchers who made amazing discoveries. Parker collected a mass of dirt while on a field trip in northwestern New Mexico. In it, he unearthed several pre-historic bones. Finding something to give students the drive and moti- vation to take an interest was Parker ' s per- sonal goal. He felt one of the most severe problems in ed- ucation was the lack of interest in science. " Part of the drive is to find what interests students about science and make it available to them. This is our little bit to do just that, " Parker said. With the help of high school students that partici- pated in the University ' s Young Scholar ' s Program, Parker and his helpers found parts of three prehistoric creatures. Interest increased as Par- ker unveiled his findings. " We ' re just trying to bring the unfamiliar closer to home. " he said. Parker hoped to return to New Mexico again in order to find more evidence of these creatures. In the meantime, the bones that were uncov- ered were to be displayed as part of a geology exhibit. Professor Robert Holton, on the other hand, made a breakthrough in the study of concer. A drug called taxol, formu- lated with the bark of a tree called the Pacific-Yew, showed promise in the treat- ment of ovarian cancer. Holton pursued the possibil- ities taxol had in the fight against other forms of cancer. The procedure that Holton developed, however, does not require bark from the Pacific- Yew. Instead, two chemical fragments of the drug were joined in the lab. One frag- ment was easily composed, the other was much more complex. Fortunately, how- ever, the second particle was extracted from the leaves of the tree, instead of its bark. Problems continued to plague the chemist as the need to produce taxol in large quantities increased. Studies were labored because there was not enough of the drug for expirements. The Univer- sity Office of Research filed U.S. and foreign patent ap- plications on Holton ' s behalf. Associate Vice President Mike Devine, director of the university ' s technology trans- fer programs, said the license and research agreement in- cluded a five year grant for Holton to begin developing the necessary drug for his ex- periments. The Florida High Technology Council and the Florida Legislature helped the university fund Holton ' s work.

However, one class teaches students that there is much more in- volved in managing than be- ing courteous to customers. The Hospitality Depart- ment of the Business school provided training in all areas of food service through what is called Dinner class. The students were divided into teams to organize actual din- ners for the public and they fulfilled the duties of service, production, reception, expe- ditor, sanitation and manage- ment. " I think you can definitely tell when there is a cohesive management team. It makes things m.ore enjoyable and it make the evening run more smoothly, " Courtney Scheider said after working one of the many succesful dinners. One such success was the " American Bounty " dinner. The theme of " An Evening at Delmonico ' s " and all the plans were organized by Randy Chancey, general manager; Michael Jones, pro- duction manager; Mark Dumias, service manager; and Rebecca Smith, recep- tion manager. " This management team worked with each other well and communicated with their employees, " Susan Carpenter said. Carpenter worked with service for that dinner. The dinner series began in 1958 and since that time it has developed such a grand reputation that marketing of (t the tickets was not necessary. The department provided four series of four dinners each and the public pur- chased tickets for an entire series at $ 1 5 per dinner. With 34 students in the Dinner Class, there were eight teams of four or five that rotated weekly to expe- rience work in each area of food service. Each team was assigned a country for which they chose a related theme to apply to the dinner they man- aged. Each dinner was preceded by a 34 minute reception where hot and cold hors d ' oeuvres were served. Then the dinner itself lasted two hours and included five to seven courses and one or two wines. Though the team in charge of man- agement for a din- ner planned the de- tails and supplied all the necessities, all the teams were responsi- ble. The sanitation team worked in the dish room and kept clean dishes available in preparation for the next course. It was essential that the reception was set up properly and ran smoothly. Production, the actual cook- ing and preparation of the food, was obviously very im- portant to the overall dinner. " This was my first time in production not to mention one of my first times cooking and my manager made it a very pleasent experience, " Tracey Williams said. " I was very uncomfortable about the idea of cooking for some- one else ' s dinner because I Dinner is definitely a bonding experience within the department. -Mark Dumais k3t lervice manager Mark .Dumais ensures that each ta- rble setting is elegant and ex- act. The " American Bounty " man- agement team used a rose and white color scheme with " An Eve- ning At Delmonico ' s " as their se- lected theme. " ■J iL r- I c s DINNER (CONTINUED) didn ' t want to ruin it. Mike, my production manager, helped me tremendously, not only with the actual cooking but also with my nerves. " Williams was not alone. Several students involved had limited to no experience in the areas they had to work. Especially in service there was an expected number who had never waited tables and had no clue of the proper methods. The responsibility of making sure they knew by dinner time belonged to the managers. Even then uncon- trollable problems occurred. " The biggest problem was the late table. That really threw things off. Even though we tried to catch the table up to the others, they were slow eaters so that made it worse. Another problem was that there was a missing person at one table. This complicated the buebly system (a method of serving), " Michelle Mar- tinelly, a server at " American Bounty, " said. Each team, when faced with the management of their own dinner, accepted an awe- some challenge. The instruc- tor of the dinner class, Libby Lewis, informed each team that they had a budget of $600, but $150 of that was taken off the top for the pruchase of liquor. Managers relied heavily on business do- nations of items like food and decorations. The management team or- ganized food (required to be made from scratch-even bread and dressings), decora- tions, recipes, plate design, and entertainment ( " American Bounty " had a student violinist as entertain- ment for their reception). The managers also had to write reports. " Not only did we receive very detailed task sheets, but also he (the service manager) took the time to draw out posters of the menu, itmes and the service process, " Su- san Carpenter said after serv- ing for " An Evening at Delmonico ' s. " Secondly, he reviewed everything we needed to know in one of the seminar rooms. He was very receptive to any and all questions pre- sented to him, and he eased my apprehension of my task at hand, " Carpenter contin- ued. After a team ' s dinner was over they and their dinner were critiqued by the instruc- tor, three lab assistants and their peers. Then another team took over management as they moved on to the next area, setting up the reception for next week ' s dinner. " By semester ' s end, the class is a close knit group from dealing with crises to- gether and working colsely for long periods of time, " Mark Dumais said, having his management experience behind him. " Dinner is def- initely a bonding experience within the department, " Dumais said.

COURTESY OF JULIAN GRAHAM ACADEMIC 65 K STUDYING BEYOND THE Borders To study abroad was to open doors to a new educational experi- ence. Students not only found themselves exposed to a different culture, but they actually lived as a part of this culture — not as tourists. Op- portunities existed for stu- dents to participate in the program during fall, spring or summer sessions. The locations of the study centers boasted some of the most beautiful sites in the world. Students could see Mi- chelangelo ' s David while studying in Florence, view the grand sites of Lx)ndon, or visit the volcanoes of Costa Rica, The courses offered by each center varied from se- mester to semester due to changes in faculty and their interests. During the fall and spring sessions students car- ried course loads of 12 to 16 hours, but only six to nine hours were recommended for students attending summer sessions. Each study center usually held classes four days a week, so students enjoyed travels and tours during three-day weekends. In addition, dur- ing the fall and spring, classes were suspended for one week following mid-terms. " Our hotel was right around the corner from the Medici Chapel, the Duomo On the way to the study center, C.C. Shoemaker and Julian Graham enjoy the beautiful streets of Florence. Student housing was separated from the study center, but it was located nearby, (( (Florence Cathedral) and the Baptistery, " Wagner said. Students attending the Florence Study Center resid- ed either with landladies or in a small pensione with oth- er students. The center itself was in downtown Florence and it contained classrooms, faculty offices and a library. The price of the entire trip varied depending on the in- dividual. Each student paid a program fee which included: housing, medical insurance, administrative expenses and group travel costs. On the weekends, students visited cities including Siena, Ven- ice, Milan and Rome. " The price also covered breakfast at a nearby bar (serving pastries and cappucino), about ten meals out and the sched- uled group trips, " Wagner contin- ued. The program fee, however, did not cover tuition and class-related expenses, travel to and from Italy, personal travel costs in Italy, or per- sonal expenses such as laun- dry, meals, and entertain- ment. Fortunately, financial aid awarded to attend classes in Tallahassee could be used with the Study Abroad Pro- gram. Students involved with the program seemed to agree that it was impossible to complete a session abroad without gaining at least a basic ap- preciation of art. (cont.) Almost every lecture for art history class was given in museums, cathedrals, or on the streets of the city. ' -Meredith Wagner BEYOND THE BORDERS (CONTINUED) " Almost every lecture for Art History class was given in museums, cathedrals, or on the streets of the city, " Wag- ner said. All the students met in New York where they took off together for Rome. The trip began and ended in Rome but students spent the rest of the time in Florence. Florence was vibrant for the students who enjoyed the shopping, discos and fine food. Perhaps the most ed- ucational experience for the students involved the con- stant interaction with the Italians. " I think what I appreciated most about the London Pro- gram was that it allowed me to experience England as more than just a tourist. I ate British food, attended a Brit- ish church and was a guest in British homes, " Curt Purcell said. Most students who attend- ed the Lx)ndon Study Center lived in a dormitory style ho- tel, that also contained the library and offices. Other stu- dents were housed in similar quarters near the main cent- er. For each session attended, the students paid two Pro- gram Fees, one to the uni- versity and one to a facil- ities travel contractor. These covered airfare, housing, medical insurance and ad- ministrative fees. Three op- tions were available concern- ing program fees so that students could pay for all or a portion of the above items. The university fee also cov- ered social cultural activities and partial center overhead costs. Not included with the two program fees are tution, class related expenses, personal travel costs in England and other personal expenses. " As an educational expe- rience, I can ' t think of any- thing better than studying abroad. I was able to actually see on stage every play cov- ered in my Shakespeare class. I interviewed British people for Article and Essay Work- shop and for my Chaucer class, we actually made the trip to Canterbury! " Purcell continued. As part of the program, stu- dents saw Stonehenge, Bath, Stratford-Upon-Avon, and of course, Paris. Participants in the program were encouraged to use their weekends for travel and were given a ten- day break exclusively for this purpose. " I spent my break in Scot- land, going from Edinburgh to Inverness to Aberdeen. Many other students used Eurorail passes to travel on the continent. Still others went to Ireland, " Purcell said. Most of the classes offered used the London culture to enrich the learning experi- ence. " The culture in London is unbelievable. I could have seen a different play every night for the entire semester. At the Tate Gallery, I was able to see everything from Blake to Van Gogh to Dali, " Purcell said. To study in London, one does not need to be con- cerned about a language bar- rier. However, students at the Study Center in Costa Rica, like those in Florence, must consider that factor. The Costa Rica Program is centered in San Jose and it is recommended especially for individuals majoring in Spanish, History, Anthropol- ogy, International Affairs, Business and Inter-American Studies. Arrangements were made for each student to live with a Costa Rican family. The Uni- versity of Costa Rica staff se- lected and monitored the families. This gave the stu- dent direct access to life with- in a Costa Rican family and it has proven very successful in the past. Two meals a day (breakfast and dinner) were provided by the family. The student ' s laundry is also handled by the family. Another advantage of par- ticipation in the Costa Rica program was the well- credentialed lecturers and faculty. Costa Rican experts addressed the students. Stu- dents could hear foreign ser- vice officers of the U.S. Em- bassy and officials of the government of Costa Rica. Some of the weekend trips included visits to volcanoes, a Quaker farming colony, major ports and beaches and white water rafting down the Reventazon River. Students took advantage of the Studies Abroad Programs for many reasons. The classes were smaller and were taught by some of the most out- standing teachers of Florida ' s universities. Education was enriched by historical, social, and cultural experiences and surroundings. Confronted with a new culture, students were challenged to better their lives. Students also learned more about our own society, by contrast and by discovering the European roots of our country.

The survey was administered to students in the School of Social Work. " We surveyed undergrad- uate and graduate students, and the results showed that the students are not as knowl- edgable as we would like about AIDS or the HIV vi- rus, " Montgomery said. " The survey was written to test the knowledge, attitudes and behavior of students who will become health profes- sionals, social workers, nurses, psychologists and counselors, but the students continued to hold myths that could harm their patients and themselves. The students were not as knowledgeable as we had assumed, " she said. Dr. Dianne Montgomery prepares some informa- tion for a survey on AIDS awareness. Dr. Montgomery com- piled the survey with Dr. Deborah Zurschmiede of Appalachee As- sociation in Tallahassee and Dr, Karen Sowers-Hoag of Florida In- ternational University, 64 Another disturbing conclu- sion drawn from the survey was the contrast in student beliefs and behavior. " Even when students had a high de- gree of knowledge about AIDS and the HIV virus, that knowledge was not reflected in their behavior, " Mont- gomery said. " Part of the problem is that young people believe they are invulnerable; they are part of the It Won ' t Happen To Me Syndrome. " National re- search showed that young people tended to regard AIDS as an " adult " disease which wouldn ' t af- fect, or infect them. Because the im- plications of the survey results were so distress- ing, Montgomery surveyed students from a variety of majors, " to be sure that not only social work stu- dents were at risk because of their lack of information. " These students ' reactions were in the ranges of the so- cial work students. Subsequently, the survey was administered to students at another university in the State University System, to gauge beliefs of students with similar education and life ex- periences. Again, the results were the same. Montgomery thought that a large part of the problem was that Florida ' s college age population was not covered by legislation requiring AIDS The survey results showed that the students are not as knowledgable as we would like about AIDS or the HIV virus. -Dr. Dianne Montgomery " « ' ;-!.- - ' !5WK,vw n- n SURPRISING RESULTS (CONTINUED) instruction for students. " House Bill 1739 was passed by the Florida Legis- lature in the 1990 session, and it mandates that students from kindergarten through senior high take human sex- uality (mostly called health education) classes. But there are no requirements for col- lege students. " Fortunately, many stu- dents at the university chose to take General Biology for non-majors (APB 1 1 50). " Two thousand five hun- dred students a year take this course, " Ann Lumsden said. Co-coordinator for the non- major biology program, Lumsden said that the per- centage was very good. One fourth of the course was dedicated to the biology of AIDS. It explained how HIV worked and how it was transmitted. Dr. Paul Elliot, who taught the session on AIDS, also explained to stu- dents the best way to prevent infection. " Behavior modification, it ' s as simple as that, " Elliot said. " Practicing safe sex and safe IV drug use are the only truly effective measures to prevent the spread of HIV, short of abstention. " But specific information about a sexually transimtted disease which had reached epidemic proportions in much of the world was not required for students in the health profession at state uni- versities. Only when they graduated and became li- censed would those students come under the jurisdiction of state laws designed to pro- tect the public from the spread of HIV. " The state requires that li- censed health and mental health professionals attend classes on AIDS and the HIV virus, and maintain credits certifying their continuing education, " Montgomery ex- plained. And thus was formed the predicament which Dr. Montgomery ' s sur- vey disclosed; a large segment of young adults in Florida did not have clear-cut, definitive information on AIDS and the HIV virus. The situation was made even more ironic and tragic because the legislation was intended to be part of an overall health education cur- riculum for Florida students. This did not mean that AIDS education was ignored; AIDS education was avail- able on campus. Orientation packets that included AIDS information and brochures on sexually transmitted dis- eases were available through the orientation office and Thagard Health Center. This information was vol- untary however, and the truth of the matter was that few students sought out the available facts. For that rea- son, Montgomery remained concerned that students ' AIDS knowledge was hap- penstance. Because of Florida ' s reve- nue-collecting dilemma in late 1990 and early 1991, the university had to reduce its $190 million allocation by $ 10.4 million; faculty and ad- ministrators were faced with maintaining the status quo; few new courses were consid- ered. Gwen Register ROBERT PARKER Biology lab students wtio weren ' t familiar with con- doms learned quickly. In- structors passed out condoms and " How To Use a Condom " guides during a lab on sexually transmitted diseases. Every semester, at least 1500 students learned about the dangers of the HIV virus. In APB- 1150, Dr. Elliot tells students the most effective way to prevent the spread of AIDS, behavior mod- ification. ROBERT PARKER Robert B.

Robert Glidden was the dean of the School of Music. He was a former director of graduate studies in music and chairman of music education at the University of Oklaho- ma. He was also former ex- ecutive director of the Na- tional Association of Schools of Music and National As- sociation of Schools of Art in Washington, D.C. Curtis L. McCray was the president of Cali- fornia State Uni- versity, Long Beach. He was an English professor and former prov- ost and vice pres- ident for academic affairs at Governers State University, Uni- versity Park HI and president of the University of North Florida in Jackson- ville. Lick, who had undergrad- uate, graduate, and masters degrees in mathematics from Michingan State University and a doctorate from the University of California, Riverside, would face an up- hill battle to keep class sizes under control with the uni- versity ' s 28,000 enrollment. The importance of private fund raising stemmed from inadequate finance structures that caused individual classes to grow in size. Each semes- ter the number of classes " He has a history of mov- ing institutions forward and excellent experience, -Faculty Senate President Alan Mabe SEARCHING (CONTINUED) taught in auditoriums in- creased and classes of 200 students of more were be- coming increasingly more common. With the population of Florida growing and inade- quate funding to pay top pro- fessors competitively and provide for adequate class- room facilities, the only so- lution was for public univer- sities to raise money privately. Top professors re- ceived up to two hunderd thousand dollars, a price that sounded high but reflected what these educators were worth. With the new supercon- ductor and enhanced scien- tific facilities, the university found itself competing with school like the Massachusset- tes Institute of Technology for some of th most respected professors in the nation. Dr. Sliger said that lack of money was only one factor contrib- uting to the growing class size. " The Board of Regents sent someone down to study and critique the university, and the funny thing is they criticized us because our class sizes were too small. They compared us to the Univer- sity of Florida, who they praised for holding so many large classes in auditoriums, so they could pay their pro- fessors even more. Pay them more to teach less seems to be the trend nowadays, " SUger said. But Lick had been publicly praised for handling drastic state budget cuts during his reign at Maine without let- ting those cuts affect the stu- dents. As well as serving as the Maine president at the time of his selection by the Board of Regents, Lick served as president of Georgia South- ern University where he helped transform the football team into a national power- house in Division I-AA. He raised private money for a stadium, hired a good coach and sent somebody to K-Mart to buy the team ' s first footballs. On his first visit to Florida State in late January, Lick impressed members of a search advisory committee with his record and confi- dence in answering their questions. " He has a history of mov- ing institutions forward, and excellent experience, " faculty senate president Alan Mabe said. Lick and his wife, Marilyn, were from Marlette, Michi- gan. They had three grown children and were very active in the Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints, where she was an elder. While Lick probably wouldn ' t have been found playing pool with the stu- dents, he did enjoy playing golf and tennis. He also likes to attend the theater and con- certs, but those who knew him best said he ' d rather work.

Sliger v? ;- PHOTO LAB ACADEMIC FINAL QUESTIONS ANSWERED FRANKLY His Own Words 77 Outgoing President Dr. Bernard Sliger was happy to be moving on after fifteen years as university president. In this exclusive interview to the Renegade staff, Sliger reflected on the outstanding triumphs and modest defeats since his as- sociation with the university. From the horrors of the Ted Bundy massacres to joining the ACC and winning the new magnet lab, Sliger had these frank words to say . . . Q: The university has made incredible strides in the fif- teen years you ' ve been here as president. The past per- ceptions of FSU hosting an environment of radicals and extremists has changed to mainstream. What kind of credit can you take for such changes? A: I feel like it ' s just hap- pened underneath me. I couldn ' t have stopped it if I tried. If I ' ve done anything, it ' s to let them do what they ' re good at. Take for ex- ample Bobby Bowden. Some presidents might have trou- ble handling a coach who is more popular than the pres- ident - getting a lot more at- tention. But my feeling is that Bobby Bowden is good for Florida State because the publicity he is getting is good for the university. So if I ' ve Taking one of the highest honors ot o football game.

President Sliger congratu- lates MIna Jo Powell with a handshake before the ded- ication of a park in her name. done anything it ' s to let my people do what they ' re good at. Q: Could you name one of your proudest accomplish- ments during your reign here? A: There are two things. One ' s tangible, the engineer- ing school. I think I had a more substantial hand in get- ting that done than anything else. The second thing is in- tangible. I think what we ' ve created here is an atmosphere on campus in which the stu- dents, faculty and adminis- tration get along reasonably well. Q: How has the student body changed over the duration of your presidency? A: I don ' t think it ' s changed very much. The students have better grade point av- erages and SAT ACT scores than they did fifteen years ago, but whether that really makes them better and how much better, I don ' t know. It ' s more difficult to get in now and I guess we have a student body that ' s more re- spected nationally, but I think it will take ten years for people to realize how good Florida State is right now. Presently, they ' re judging us on how good we were ten years ago. People say to me all the time that if you have a really good football team, then you must be over- emphasizing athletics. My point is that we ' re as good a university now than when we were 0- II . Probably better. But I can ' t see much of a dif- ference. They ' re certainly more conservative now than they were in the early sev- enties, but you don ' t want them docile either. You ' re okay just as long as they ' re not pitching bricks through your window. Q: We have had to fight hard to overcome the image of be- ing one of the more radical campuses in the country. We were the university that brought in streaking, male homecoming queens, and that sort of thing. Has FSU moved more towards the mainstream, and if so, has the value of the education re- ceived here changed as a re- sult? A: Yes, but I don ' t want to put to much of an emphasis on that " yes " because I don ' t really think we were out of the mainstream — it was just a perception. Lots of places have had similar kinds of things. We have had our share of chance, though. For example, the first announced casualty of the Gulf war was a Florida State graduate. The Bundy incident — Bundy didn ' t even know where Florida State was. He was heading to Gainseville. The streaking thing, we just got credit. I think we ' ve had our share of unusual sta- tistical events, but I believe that a degree from Florida State is equivalent to one from any good public univer- sity in the country and cer- tainly better than many. Q: What do you see the ACC adding to academics? A: I believe we will be com- pared to those schools. Peo- ple will think of Duke, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Vir- ginia, and Florida State. As an independent president, you don ' t associate very HIS OWN WORDS (CONTINUED) much with other presidents the same way presidents do in an athletic conference. I had my first meeting recently with ACC presidents and spent several hours with the president of Duke and Geor- gia Tech. You ask what they do and they want to fmd out what you do. Then they fmd out you ' re better than they thought you were and you fmd out you ' re not that far behind them. Q: How do you feel the ath- letic program has changed since you got here? Do you feel athletics has strength- ened or weakened the Uni- versity academically? A: I think the athletic pro- gram has done remarkably well. In our case, how foot- ball goes is how our athletic program goes because we have to finance the athletic department out of athletic revenues and the only one that even breaks even is foot- ball. We spend four million dollars on football and we make nine million. We have a great athletic program and at the same time we give money to schol- arships and other academic needs. I think with other presidents the perception of FSU academically has im- proved remarkably. Anybody that knows higher education knows that athletics doesn ' t hurt academics in any way. Q: Describe a typical day for you in your duties as pres- ident. A: A typical day would be to get up between five and six. I go down to Burger King when it opens at six to get a cup of coffee and a biscuit. They get a paper there and I read it. Then I walk for forty-five minutes and I get to the office between 9 and 9:30 and I have appointments all day. I meet with the president of the faculty staff, state sena- tors, and groups that want us to endow them. And then I ' ve got between five and ten phone calls. I have to call everyone who doesn ' t get the job, too. For example, yes- terday I had to call the person that we didn ' t pick for the Dean of Arts and Sciences job, and I had to call a father who wanted his daughter in the nursing school. And I have to read sometimes — and I have to write. I never have a weekend off. Q: Do you see class sizes in- creasing, leveling, or getting smaller? A: I think it ' s going to in- crease everywhere in Florida. They ' re not going to give you the resources to cut class size down unless they change the tax-structure. It ' s funny, we got criticized — the Board of Regents pay ' experts ' to come in and evaluate our educa- tional programs — and we got criticized for having too many small classes in the mathematics department. Q: What characteristics do you think the new president. Dale Lick, has to add to FSU? A: First of all, he ' s young. He ' s just the right age. At 53, he ' s perfect because he ' s got enough energy and he ' s old enough that he ' s learned some lessons along the way. I think he ' s a hard worker; I think he ' s very bright. His record has demonstrated that everywhere he ' s been he ' s gone on to a higher niche. Q: How are you going to feel July 31, the last day, when you ' re putting your belong- ings away for the last time? A: I think it comes slowly. You have several reactions. First you announce you ' re stepping down. The next time is when they announce the new person- you get a funny feeling because you ' re standing off to the side. There will be aspects of it I miss. I ' m not saying I ' m go- ing to hang it up, but I ' m tired of reading memos. My secretary has probably had five calls since you ' ve been in here saying someone needs papers signed. It ' s time for someone else. I ' m happy I made my decision how I did when I did. Q: What do you feel has been the most personally reward- ing aspects of your presiden- cy? A: I spoke to a fellowship gathering the other night and said that one of the things I really like about this univer- sity is that people want to get to know the president. They don ' t care if it ' s Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck, they just want to meet the pres- ident. So you can get a lot closer to the students as the president than as a faculty member or other mentor. The number of students you influence as president is much greater than it is on the faculty. When I walk across the campus, at least some- body says ' hi ' to me. But you come back in a year, and un- less they name the stadium after you, they won ' t remem- ber you. Q:Do you have any last words for the students or fac- ulty? A: Work hard. There ' s no substitute for hard work. A lot of people don ' t realize how hard I ' ve worked be- cause I don ' t try to run around and give that impres- sion. You won ' t get anywhere without hard work. Even among geniuses, I ' ve always found that the people who get the farthest in their fields work the hardest. Q: Any other last words? A: I ' ve enjoyed the fifteen years, but there ' s been some sad days, too, that I don ' t think anybody realizes. A young girl got killed near campus recently. People say that as a university president, you ' re just like a mayor. A PHOTO lAB mayor doesn ' t get held re- sponsible when somebody dies or somebody gets killed. But the president does. People see the president as protecting the students or not protecting the students. You never get used to that stuff. But the Bundy incident had to be the worst time I have had. I had only been pres- ident a year or a year and a half You have professionals that help you handle the sit- uation. . .and it seemed like we kept finding another one. Interview by Brett D.

The Semi- noles played a tight game but lost by an Auburn field goal in the last seconds of the game. SPORTS FLORIDA STATE 45 EAST CAROLINA 24 Haunted by opening losses the last two years, the Semi- noles spooked the East Car- olina Pirates 45-24 in a shaky first game. They took com- mand and got over the first game jitters. On the second play of the tribe ' s first possession, full- back Edgar Bennett fumbled, giving East Carolina the ball on the Seminoles ' 24-yard line. The turnover cost the Seminoles a touchdown from a scoring drive that involved Pirates ' quarterback Jeff Blake ' s 13-yard pass to run- ning back Cedric Van Buren after just three minutes into the contest. " They kind of shocked us for a little while, " outside linebacker Sterling Palmer said On the next drive, the Seminoles could only move to the Pirates ' 44-yard line before they were forced to punt. The warrior ' s defense picked up the momentum and spread the fire to the of- fense. On third-and-two, Semi- nole quarterback Brad Joh- son connected to receiver Lawrence Dawsey on a 13- yard pass. On the next play, running back Amp Lee bolt- ed through the line for a 28- yard gain, giving the Semi- noles a first-and-goal at the five yard line. Dawsey wrestled a pass thrown by Johnson from Pi- rate defender Chris Hall in the comer of the end zone to tie the score at seven. " He ' s (Dawsey) our Mr. Automatic. He makes things happen. " Johnson said. Defense revved their en- gines again after Howard Dinkins ' sack and then a Kirk Carruthers fumble re- covery. The offense handled the rest with a 29-yard field goal by kicker Richie An- drews. With the talent of Semi- nole running backs Paul Moore, Amp Lee, and Edgar Bennett, the tribe gained the yardage needed to cap off an 80-yard drive. Comerback Terrell Buck- ley ignited the field leaving a trail of smoke behind him af- ter returning a 63 yard punt return for a touchdown, drag- ging East Carolina ' s Ernest Tynes into the end zone. Buckley remained hot in the second half when he picked off a Blake pass and returned it 28 yards to the Seminoles ' 48 yard line. The tribe racked in two more touchdowns pushing their lead to 38-17. The final score came on a nine play, 75-yard drive, highlighted by Bennett ' s 1-yard touchdown power run. Cassy Bunn Driving past a defender. Freshmen Matt Frier scam- pers for a first down.

However, you missed it because you decid- ed to take a break from the loud noise and the crowd in Doak Campbell Stadium. That ' s okay. You ' ll just flash your ticket stub and find your seat just in time for Lawrence Dawsey ' s big catch of the game, right? Wrong! Seminole football fans who left the stadium after kickoff during the six home games found themselves without a way to get back in. A new rule established prior to the foot- ball season prohibited ticket holders from re-entering the stadium once the game was under way. The new policy went into effect with the Sept. 8 home opener against East Carolina and continued through the Dec. 1 closing clash with the University of Florida. The rule was created for safety reasons. " Florida State is joining many Division I universities across the country in imple- menting a rule encouraged by the NCAA of limiting alcohol abuse at intercollegiate ath- letic contests. Once the foot- ball game begins, any ticket holder who exits the stadium will not be allowed to re- enter. The purpose of this policy is to protect the in- tegrity of the game as well as the safety and comfort of the fans, " Athletic Director Bob Goin said. Other measures were also taken this year to ensure the well-being of fans. The uni- versity ' s Department of Pub- lic Safety officials advised the public to leave home two to three hours before kickoff to avoid traffic congestion and to obtain nearby parking. The parking dilemma may have seemed unbearable when the lower half of the intramural field next to Flor- ida High, which was redesignated as a lot for Sem- inole Boosters, and the band field, were closed to the gen- eral public for this season. However, the Leon County Civic Center and downtown state lots were able to accom- modate 2000 vehicles. In ad- dition, Taltran ' s Tribe Ride Shuttle provided service to Campbell Stadium to those fans wanting to avoid the parking crunch. Another precaution taken was circled around the foot- ball field. University and Tal- lahassee police officers and Leon County Sheriffs depu- ties were joined at all of the home games by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, To- bacco, and Firearms, who pa- trolled for underage drinkers. A total of 250 to 300 law en- forcement officials directed traffic and provided security in and around the stadium.

Af- ter kickoff, no one was permitted to re-enter the stadium because of concerns of tobacco and al- coholic products. FLORIDA STATE48 GA SOUTHERN 6 The Seminoles ' 48-6 rout of Georgia Southern was a cele- bration of a bright future. The game was highlighted with solid performances by underclassmen, giving Sem- inole fans high hopes for the season. Leading the ground attack was freshman Sean Jackson with 112 yards. Sophomore Amp Lee, nursing an injured hand, still managed to con- tribute 47 yards and two touchdowns, adding to the tribe ' s 320 yard rushing total. The Seminole youth move- ment was also demonstrated in an air attack, as sopho- more Shannon Baker grabbed three catches, two of which were for touchdowns. Baker had always dreamed of making that first touchdown catch. ' Tt was like heaven passing in my face, " the wide receiver said. " It was more exciting than anything I had imagined. " A young Seminole defense rose to the occasion as well. Sophomore outside lineback- er Brad Lundstrom recovered two fumbles and the line held the Eagles ' driving force to only 14 yards. The contest also marked the first start for inside line- backer Marvin Jones. The freshman would become a third team Ail-American se- lection at the season ' s end. To add to the excitement, sophomore speedster Terrell Buckley returned a punt 67 yards for a fourth quarter score, and the final blow for the Georgia Southern Eagles from the tribe ' s young guns.

Instead, it turned out to be a super per- formance from both teams. The tribe ' s defense held strong against the Green Wave ' s solid, ball-controlled ground attack. Early in the game the Tulane offense marched from its 20 yard line to the Seminole 14 before a Terrell Buckley interception stifled the drive. " That set the stage for our defense, " Buckley said. The defense staged a near shutout, blemished only by two Green Wave touchdowns late in the game, ending the contest at 31-13. The tribe ' s offense was ex- plosive, running up 43 1 yards because of the pinpoint ac- curacy of the quarterbacks; Brad Johnson completed 13 of 17 passes for 170 yards and Casey Weldon went 1 1 for 1 5 passes for 110 yards. At the receiving end of those passes were wide re- ceiver Lawrence Dawsey and tailback Amp Lee with six catches each, and fullback Edgar Bennet with four. Red- shirt freshman receiver Matt Frier made two big catches which later set up a 44 yard Bennet score. First year re- ceiver Eric Terral hauled in a 22 yard touchdown catch to cap off the Seminole air as- sault. " Our defense play great, " said coach Bobby Bowden.

RYALS LEE Coach Ed Williamson Leaves His Memory The university ' s first football coach, Ed Williamson, died of cancer January 14, 1991.

Though the 1 904 team won a state cham- made, and Williamson was assigned the task of finding a coach. This job proved al- most impossible because the university had set high stand- ards for a coach. " The decision was that none of them (the candi- dates) would do because none had doctorates, " Williamson said. Three months away from the first kickoff, the situation was tense. With no team, no coach, no stadium, and no equipment, Broward Culpep- per, the dean of student af- fairs at the time, then offered pionship, the following years Williamson the job.

ED WILLIAMSON f PORTS |i FLORIDA STATE m VIRGINIA TECH Campbell Stadium was the sight of victory as the Seminoles came back from an 1 8 point deficit to smoke-out the Virginia Tech Hokies. " You never find out what kind of team you have until you get behind, " coach Bob- by Bowden said. " I think that was just about the greatest football game I ever saw, a typical Virginia Tech game for us. " Highlights of the game peaked when the tribe ' s cor- nerback, Terrell Buckley pro- vided a 53 yard interception return for a touchdown. It was Buckley ' s fourth inter- ception of the season. Beaten twice on touch- down passes in the first half, comerback Errol McCorvey psyched himself into a big second half recovery. " I real- ly got down on myself after giving up those two touch- downs. I told myself that I could either come out in the second half and make some big plays, or do nothing and take the criticism. " McCorvey illustrated his belief in himself as he swooped up a fumble and ran it back 77 yards for a touch- down in the fourth quarter Virginia Tech quickly pro- duced 21 points on mere scrimmage plays until quar- terback Brad Johnson took over. Johnson initiated the Seminoles on the road to re- covery with a 1 play drive of 84 yards, as tailb ack Amp Lee scored a touchdown on a five yard run. As Johnson ex- celled in 22 of 38 passes, the team totaled 420 yards on of- fense. In 1 1 games, Bowden had never lost to Virginia Tech. " We matched guts for guts, " Bowden said. " If we hadn ' t, we probabaly would not have won this one. " Regardless of how the game was won, it was a vic- tory.

The tribe entered the contest ranked number two in the na- tion and Miami stood ninth ranked. For the Seminoles, a win in Miami would have meant a number of things. The most obvious would have been claiming the brag- ging rights of being the state ' s best. Other prizes that could have been won were breaking Miami ' s 33-game winning streak in the Orange Bowl and handing coach Bobby Bowden career victory num- ber 200. Yet, the legendary coach would have to hold at 199, because the Hurricanes had other plans. The Hurricanes seized the victory, 31-22, by capitaliz- ing on the garnet and gold ' s penaliti es and the talent of Miami ' s devastating rushing attack. The Seminoles had eight penalities for 85 yards, three of which came on key third down plays that would have given the Seminoles the ball. Miami also gained 334 rushing yards which sent a deadly blow to the Semi- noles. However, Seminole in- side linebacker Kirk Car- ruthers expected the rush. " We figured they would run, but we thought we ' d stop it quickly and force them to pass, " Carruthers said. Although the Seminoles ended the two quarters 24-6, the tribe managed to mount a comeback effort in the sec- ond half, pushed on by the halftime news that Stanford upset number one ranked Notre Dame. ' T thought we might pull out a Miami of ' 87, " Bowden said, recalling a similar effort that ended in a 26-25 loss. " That ' s what our goal was at the halftime. " The spark started in the second half when Seminole quarterback Brad Johnson looked towards senior receiv- er Lawrence Dawsey, who caught a career high 1 3 passes for 160 yards and a touch- down. With 11:30 remaining in the fourth quarter, a 32 yard field goal kicked by Richie Andrews and Amp Lee ' s two yard touchdown run cut Mi- ami ' s lead to 24-16. The Hur- ricanes answered with a 13 play, 80 yard drive ending with a two yard push into the endzone by Stephen McGuire which ate up time considerably, making the score 31-16. Yet, the Seminoles would end the game with one last surge as backup quarterback Casey Weldon led a 61 yard scoring drive, hitting tight end Dave Roberts on a 19 yard touchdown pass with 24 seconds remaining.

The Seminoles took it down to the wire only to watch their hopes for the national title diminish at Jordan Hare Stadium. The tribe was successful in the first half against the Ti- gers as backup quarterback Casey Weldon set a flame to the frustrated offense for two second quarter touchdowns. The Seminoles led 1 7-7 head- ing into the locker room. However, the tide turned as the Tigers gnawed away at the Seminoles lead and an- swered with ten fourth quar- ter points, including the game winning set up by a 22 yard quarterback sack on a Seminole fourth down at- tempt. " We have got to get the killer instinct. We have a good scheme, but we ' ve just got to take the game when we have the chance, " comerback Terrell Buckley said. Although the Seminoles lost in front of an enthusi- astic flood of fans shaking pom-poms of blue and or- ange, the tribe still managed to improve on some key as- pects of the game. Weldon passed for 224 yards and one touchdown to lead the Sem- inole average. Lawrence Dawsey had eight catches for 69 yards and sophomore run- ning back Amp Lee rushed for 81 yards to carry the tribes offense. Junior inside linebacker Kirk Carruthers believed the defense did their job. " I felt like the Auburn game was a building block for our de- fense. Aside from some mis- takes and mishaps, we played well, " Carruthers said. Head coach Bobby Bowden agreed with Car- ruthers and complimented his team despite the loss. " I thought our kids played a courageous game against Auburn. They played well, our defense in particular. I thought we showed a lot of character and heart, but we also had too many mistakes, " Bowden said. Cassy Bunn Lawrence Dawsey is brought down after being tackled by several mem- bers of the Auburn defense. The Seminoles held victory in their hands until Auburn ' s kicker landed a field goal with two seconds re- maining on the clock. stepping Up to the Conference Altar After weeks of being courted by both the Atlantic Coast Con- ference and the Southeastern Conference, university offi- cials decided to plunge into a lifelong commitment. On Sept. 1 5 the desirable football independent stepped up to the conference altar to an- nounce its marriage to the ACC, ending 44 years of bachelorhood. The decision was definitely influenced by the ACC ' s strong academic reputation. " This is an outstanding op- portunity for Florida State and I am sure they will make the most of it, " said State University System Chancel- lor Charles Reed. University president Bernie Sliger made the an- nouncement official when he accepted the invitation to join the conference starting July 1. All sports will begin league play during the 1991- 92 season. The football squad should begin action no later than the 1994 season. The marriage also ended a 1 5 year relationship with the Metro Conference. " These have been good years. We did conclude, as we looked into the future, that our long term good wou ld be best served by an all-sports conference membership, " Sliger said. The ACC was created in 1953 with seven charter members: Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest. Virginia was added to the elite list in late 1953, while South Carolina withdrew in 1971. The last time a team entered the conference was in 1978 when Georgia Tech was added. The decision to join the ACC became even more clear when the SEC withdrew con- sideration of Florida State af- ter it learned of the ACC ' s imminent offer. By joining the ACC rather than the SEC, the university could earn at least one mil- lion dollars more per year. The ACC is also know to have the nation ' s most lucra- tive basketball conference. When legendary coaches and their teams, such as North Carolina ' s Dean Smith enter the realms of Seminole ter- ritory, garnet and gold fans may scream the war chant louder than ever. In football, the road to the national title should be less rocky. The SEC offered a brutal conference schedule that almost guaranteed one loss per year. Playing an ACC schedule should make the team a strong contender for the title, year in and year out. Finally, the ACC offers a much stronger baseball con- ference for the tribe, as it bol- sters southern power North Carolina and Georgia Tech. " We are delighted, " said Clemson athletic director Bobby Robinson, " It ' s a good marriage for both parties.

In addition to the win, Seminole coach Bobby Bowden tipped the meter as he reached his milestone of 200 collegiate victories. It took just M 7 seconds for the Seminoles to light up the scoreboard in Doak Camp- bell Stadium, as the Tigers fumbled the opening kickoff. The tribe ' s Terrell Buckley recovered on the Tiger ' s 16 yard line and two plays later tailback Amp Lee found pay dirt. Quarterback Casey Weldon took center stage in his first start of the season as he led the tribe to a school record 99 yard touchdown drive. Freshman wide receiv- er Matt Frier was one of the stars during the drive when he caught a 54 yard bomb from Weldon. It was the Seminoles ' longest offensive play of the season. " I was kind of surprised because that was the first time that they ' ve really gone deep to me. I ' ve always been a possesion type receiver and I always thought that I could get deep on them, " Frier said. Weldon took the air again, this time with only three sec- onds remaining in the half The 38 yard " Hail Mary- pass landed in the hands of Shannon Baker to take a 28-3 lead into the locker room. " It was a pre-designed play. There were three receiv- ers on one side instead of one. Really, when the play was designed, all three receiv- ers were supposed to go up and make the catch, " Baker said. The Tigers were never threatened in the second half, while Seminole substitutes played most of the fourth quarter. One was Maurice Pinckney, who led the squad with 52 yards on four carries. On that day, the Seminoles ' offense had 71 plays, which gained 468 yards. Cassy Bunn Bill Pagans and Kirk Caruthers team up to bring LSD ' s quar- terback down.

ZULMA CRESPO FLORIDA STATE SOUTH CAROLINA 41 10 Coach Bowden ' s Semi- noles took to the road for the contest against the Gamecocks in William-Brice Stadium. The last time the two teams met former Seminole quarterback Peter Tim Willis passed for 362 yards to lead the tribe to a 35-10 Homecoming win in 1989. This year the battle be- tween the two teams would vault the Seminoles back on top, improving their record to 6-2 with a 41-10 victory over the Gamecocks. The Warriors rushed for 344 yards on the ground while holding the Gamecocks to a mere 62 yards rushing. Freshman tailback Sean Jackson led the Seminoles ' offense with 1 1 5 yards. Run- ning back Amp Lee contrib- uted by adding 94 more yards three touchdowns. ' ' We had just outstanding blocking all day long. We came out throwing our first possession and realized they (South Carolina) were tyring to take away the deep pass, so it was up to us to execute the running game. It was a big win for us, especially to play that well on the road, " Lee said. Besides the fierceness of the Seminoles ' offense, there were the devastating plays of the defense. The tribe ' s de- fense sacked Gamecock quar- terbacks six times, and the birds converted on only one of 1 1 third down plays. " Our defense was really coming together. We wanted to keep South Carolina out of the end zone and we nearly did, " inside linebacker Kirk Carruthers said. Cassy Bunn Anthony Moss sacks South Carolina ' s quarterback.

A sellout crowd at Doak Campbell Stadium wit- nessed ten spectacular touch- downs against the Bearcats in a 70-21 rout. Never before had the tribe scored ten touchdowns in a game, though they had totaled 70 or more points four previous times. The victory improved Coach Bobby Bowden ' s un- blemished record of home- coming contests. Many players experienced memorable moments on that day. Freshman inside line- backer Marvin Jones had his first interception as a Sem- inole. Freshman running back Sean Jackson scored his first collegiate touchdown and a number of players earned their first bit of play- ing time during the season.

A redshirt sopho- more, Barre directed the Seminoles on three plays that Saturday. " I was hoping I could get in. Three snaps made it all worthwhile, " Barre said. Cornerback Terrell Buck- ley rewrote the Seminole rec- ord books with his 83 yard interception. Buckley earned the rights of ho lding the most yardage on interceptions dur- ing a single season. He has 2 1 9 yards by way of six pass interceptions. " The only disappointment was that we didn ' t score 100 points, " Buckley said. With a comfortable lead, Coach Bowden did some- thing he rarely does. He took of his headphones early in the second quarter and let offen- sive coordinator Brad Scott and his staff call the plays.

" The main thing is that the guys played well enough to win, " coach Bobby Bowden said. " We took control early, and the defense never let them get back in the game. " Linebacker Kirk Car- ruthers came out big as he recovered a Memphis State fumble and led the tribe with seven tackles as well as break- ing up a pass. " I felt like I had a little extra motivation due to the fact that I was out last week- end, " Carruthers said, refer- ring to his one game suspen- sion for breaking training rules. With the Seminoles ahead 9-0 at the end of the first quarter, Memphis State had to replace their injured quar- terback. The tribe ' s defense then had less to worry about. The defense kept the Tigers to 153 yards total and five first downs. On offense, the Seminoles were able to put the game in victory range as 26 additional points were scored. Center Robbie Baker helped gain control of the line of scrim- mage throughout the game. The game ' s most valuable player was wide receiver Lawrence Dawsey. Headed for the NFL, Dawsey exem- plified eight catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for two addition- al touchdowns, but they were called back by the officials. They ruled he stepped out of bounds on the first one, and the second was called back because a lineman was ille- gally downfield. With the re- cruiting scouts in the audi- ence, Dawsey had hoped at least one of the touchdowns would have resulted in his fa- vor. " I thank God for giving me the opportunity to play and making two of those. I really can ' t complain, " Dawsey said.

This victory gave the tribe their fourth consecutive win against one of their biggest in-state rivalries. DV Ai e I cr PORTS 5 ' i m n i FLORIDA STATE FLORIDA The easiest way the fans described the contest between the Seminoles and the Gators was excitement. The big plays made all the difference in a joyous victory over the Gators, 45-30. After just two offensive plays, quarterback Casey Weldon launched a 76 yard bomb to Senior Ail-American receiver Lawrence Dawsey who stepped the pig skin across the goal line for an easy touchdown. Linebacker Howard Dinkins scooped up a fumble from Gator running back Willie McClendon after Flor- ida ' s first play from the line of scrimage. The Seminoles took over on the 33 yard line in Gator territory, and four plays later Richie Andrews kicked a 47 yard field goal to put the Seminoles ahead, 10- 0. The big plays continued as the master of trickery, coach Bowden, set up a surprise on the Seminoles ' next posses- sion. Facing fourth and inch- es from the Seminole 4 1 yard line, Bowden stacked his team tightly on the line for what appeared to be a run up the middle. With all the tribe tightly packed on the line of scrimage, the offense shifted formations and the Gators thought the play was in mo- tion and jumped offsides. The Seminoles won the first down. The Seminoles capitalized on the Gator ' s mental error with another big play on the drive. Freshman wide receiv- er Matt Frier caught an 18 yard pass for a first down and third and 12. Frier ' s catch was spectacular because the Seminoles only made two of 1 1 third down conversions, and none in the second half Running back Amp Lee ended the drive with a three yard pass from Weldon into the end zone and the tribe led 17-3. The night continued to siz- zle in the second quarter as Seminole safety John Wyche intercepted the ball from Gator quarterback Shane Matthews on their two yard line. However, the Seminoles didn ' t convert and the Gators narrowed the score to 17-10 after just five plays. The Seminoles bounced back with a 29 yard connec- tion from Weldon to Lee which led to a score on a two yard run by junior fullback Edgar Bennett, and the tribe lead 24-10 at the half U pon returning to the field for the second half, Weldon passed to Frier for a 50 yard gain and four plays later, Bennett scampered in for his second score, and the ' Noles led 31-10. The last big play by the Seminoles occured when the score was 38-24. Weldon once again connected with Dawsey for a 71 yard bomb on the first down. One play later, Lee picked up his sec- ond score and the Seminoles gigged the Gators for the fourth year in a row. Cassy Bunn 45 30 ZULMA CRESPO Ending A Blockbuster Season 31.

FSU the Nittany Lions in state at Dbbie Stadium in Miami. PENN STATE Bobby Bowden capped off his silver anniver- sary season of coach- ing this year when the Semi- noles tripped up Joe Paterno ' s Penn State Nittany Lions in the inaugural Block- buster Bowl at Joe Robbie Stadium. Bowden bulked up his all time high percentage in bowl victories with the win, as the ' Noles continued to remain unbeaten in bowl games since the 1980 season. The Seminoles, with a crushing defense, combined with the scrambling of MVP Amp Lee, the passing of Casey Weldon and the catch- ing heroics of Lawrence Daw- sey, held off a late Penn State counterattack to declaw the Lions 24-17. A crowd of 74,201 saw Bobby Bowden gain his 205th career victory, as the Seminoles finished the sea- son ranked fourth in the na- tion. Bowden felt that Penn State was the best team his young squad had faced all season. " I ' ve never enjoyed a bowl as much as this one, be- cause of his (Coach Paterno ' s) association. When you ' ve beaten Joe, you ' ve ac- complished something. " The ' Noles took a 1 7-7 lead into halftime, highlighted by an Amp Lee 1-yard scoring run, a 41 -yard Richie An- drews field goal, and another Amp Lee scoring run, this time for seven yards. The Tribe recorded some impres- sive halftime statistics, as they led the Lions in total yardage. Penn State fought back in the second half, cutting the lead to 17-10 before Weldon scored on a bootleg to put the Seminoles up by two touch- downs. At that time. Lion backup quarterback Tom Bill checked into the game and promptly hooked up with Terry Smith on a 37 yard touchdown pass to cut the lead to one touchdown. The ' Noles responded like a top five team, as the vaunt- ed FSU defense stifled the Nittany Lions on their last two drives to seal the victory. While Florida State fin- ished the season with a 10-2 record and a magnificent bowl victory, many of the team ' s returning stars anx- iously await the 1991 season. " We can ' t win the national championship this season, so we looked at this game as putting ourselves in a great position heading into next year, " sophomore corner- back Terrell Buckley said. Seminole fans around the country were proud of their team and they could only hope that the success of the Florida State football pro- gram would continue into the following century. Jodie Rosenberg 17 Volleying To Greater Heights Maggie Philgence be- gan her volleyball career at Florida State when she transferred from her native St. Croix in the Virgin Islands. Her dream began when her high school coach talked her into try- ing out for the varsity team when she was a sophomore. That same year, she also joined a club team called Onyx. Through this she was able to tryout for the Virgin Islands National team. Her team had the opportunity to play against the United States, Can- ada, and Cuba in the NORECA Games in the Dominican Re- public. Prior to her competitions, she attended a volleyball clinic given by Flo Hyman, a former mem- ber of the silver medal 1984 United States volleyball team, and Arie Selinger, the former coach of the 1984 United States team, in St. Croix. Flo ' s advice to Maggie was " look and learn. " Maggie recalls, " She told me to watch other players and I would a lot from them at this tourna- ment. " Selinger was positive about her ability to play ball, and he urged her to continue playing because she had a " natural talent. " It was her ex- perience in international compe- tition and positive words of en- couragement that led Maggie to drop basketball and track to make volleyball her number one sport. After an MVP performance her senior year in high school, Maggie decided to attend Flor- ida State over San Jose State and the University of Tennessee- Knoxville. Coach Cecile Rey- naud played a very important role in Maggie ' s decision. " I liked her (Coach Reynaud) a lot because she was very easy to talk to, so that made my decision easy when it came down to a decision between Florida State and San Jose State, " Philgence said. During her freshmen year at Florida State Coach Reynaud described Maggie as " an impact player. " Coach Reynaud said, " She comes on the court and makes exciting things happen. " By the end of her freshmen year, she was named the Metro Con- ference Rookie of the Year, to the Florida Eight, Volleyball Monthly, and to the AVCA All- South Region all-tournament teams. Her sophomore and jun- ior years saw the same amount of awards and accomplishments. " All of those honors are very im- portant to me, but the honor that was really special was when I broke Florida State ' s kill record (for points earned for un- returned spikes) my junior year, " Philgence said. This past season as a senior she was one of the team leaders. Unfortunately, the team faced some big disappointments. They had lost the Metro Conference, which they had won since her freshmen year. The team was also given a chance to become the first volleyvall team in the university ' s history to make it past the first round of the NCAA National Championship tourna- ment. Sadly enough, they lost to the University of Kentucky in a hard fought four-game match. For Maggie, there were personal disappointments as well. " I did not expect to be named a first team All-American, but at least I thought that I would be an hon- orable mention. After all, I be- came only the eighth player in Division I volleyball to surpass the 2,000 kill mark in one ' s ca- reer. My senior wasn ' t all that bad. There were a lot of mem- orable moments that I will never forget. " Though her memories are grand, Maggie realized that it was time to move on if she was to accomplish her dream of be- ing an Olympic athlete. In Jan- uary she tried out for the United States " B " team, but did not make it. Maggie said, " I was very upset, and I saw it as a set back in my volleyball career. But now, I ' m even more determined to prove that I too can be an Olym- pic athlete. " Maggie ' s future plans were to play in the Eurpoe- an Professional League in the fall, while checking into the pos- sibilities of playing in France, Holland, Norway, and Switzer- land. Maggie said, " I would like to play in Europe, preferably France, to ain some interna- tional experience and then re- turn to the United States to try- out for the Olympic team. Hopefully, I would make the team the second time around.

' SPORTS lOf Talent Breeds Creativity With an interesting mix of veterans and newcomers, head coach Cecile Reynaud entered her 1 5th sea- son of Florida State volleyball with a chance to experiment. Coach Reynaud said, " l looked at many options. They were such an interesting group that I tried everyone at two positions on the floor. It added creativ- ity. " Among the five seniors on the team were Jennifer Mar- rafino, a setter, two position players, Debbie Meyer and Marybeth Sulcliffe, and the two 1989 AVCA South region selections that posed an offen- sive and defensive threat, Mag- gie Philgence and Gabrielle Reece. Philgence entered the season as the Division I active kill leader with 1,531 and Reece, closed in on the 1,000 kill mark. Philgence ended her ca- reer with 2,110 kills, placing her at the number five position on the NCAA Division I Ca- reer Kill Leaders list, while Recce ' s 748 blocks ranked fifth among the career leaders. " Two-thirds of our offense went to them. Both Maggie and Gabby have great jumps and are hard to block. The dif- ference between them is that Gabby is intimidating in her blockmg, and Maggie ' s bread and butter is her hitting, " Rey- naud said. Vicky Zinkil and Amy Bron- son contributed 160 kills and 180 kills, respectively, and proved to be lethal near the net. Coach Reynaud said, " Amy and Vicky were two of our most versatile players. They could pick up from any- where on the court most of the lime. " Junior Krisline Cousins ranked second among the NCAA confe rence leaders for digs, with an average of 3.36 per game.

Cheering Continues Dazzling Tradtion The university cheer- leaders dazzled Sem- inole fans and contin- ued to be one of the best nationally recognized squads. Varied audiences enjoyed the collegiate cheerleaders as they illustrated the meaning of determination, perserver- ance and talent. A tremen- dous amount of hard work and time was contributed by these students as they sup- ported various athletic pro- grams. The cheerleading program consisted of two squads. The Lady Seminoles, or Junior Varsity squad, cheered for all the women ' s home volleyball and basketball games. They also attended pep rallies, charity events and homecom- ing activities. The varsity cheerleaders atttended all home and most away football games as well as home basketball games. A lot of pride was taken as they also exhibited their talents at the bowl game, tournaments, pep rallies, alumni functions and charity events. " The schedule was busy and very demanding. The squad practiced five days a week and were required to go to cheerleading camp over the summer. It was one of the most time consuming activ- ities the student has, " Spirit Coordinator Robin Jolly said. Jolly noted that a cheer- leader ' s first responsibility was to his or her academic program. " Their education cannot be compromised by participation in cheerlead- ing, " Jolly said. All members have to be full-time students and maintain a grade point average of at least 2.0. Wom- en are required to maintain a specific body weight, while the men sharpened their skills by performing a mil- itary press of 135 pounds. Each university cheer- leader has been recognized for their talent and ability. The cheerleading tradition has made a mark on the Seminoles as it continued to rank number one in the state of Florida. The University Cheer- leading Association has la- beled the Seminole squad as " one of the state ' s sharpest. " With competi- tions state wide as well as nation wide, the squads have demonstrated what it takes to be the best. Jolly commented how de- manding and time consum- ing the schedule of a cheer- leader really was. " It is also an extremely rewarding and enriching experience. " Leading the crowd in " FSU- GO " and many other chants, Seminole cheer- leaders continued to pro- vide the support the athletes needed for motivation. The university was one of the only schools in the coun- try that competed for the National Championship in all three of the major sports. Not only did the Seminole cheerleaders stand by these winning programs, they have dazzled fans and judg- es all over the nation.

Active- ly helping the Seminole boosters, they entertained at alumni functions, performed for local charities and partic- ipated in various promotion- al events. This enthusiastic, spirited dance team was known as the Golden Girls. The squad attended the Universal Dance Camp for a week over the summer. Here, they enhanced their talents to further excel their perfor- mances. " We won three tro- phies there. We took second out of our home teams, sec- ond in fight song, and the squad received an overall su- perior rating for dance rou- tines. I was extremely proud, " Captain Marcy Boyas said.

Not only would his team consist of only three seni- ors, but it would face one of the nation ' s most demanding schedules. Included among the tough Metro Conference games were match-ups against the preseason number one, two, and three teams. The squad approached the season with quiet confidence and found themselves on the verge of their third NCAA Tournament bid in four years. Entering the season, senior Michael Polite was the only proven starter. An excellent rebounder and inside scorer. Polite carried the young team until they found themselves. Aubry Boyd, the only other starting senior, provided the backcourt scoring power. Sophomore Rodney Dobard was penciled in at center de- spite missing the first three games due to a broken foot. The biggest question mark for the team was who would be at point guard. Freshmen Charlie Ward took the position after his successful football season had ended. It was then that the young team skyrock- ZULMA CRESPO eted past their Metro compet- itors. Early in the season, the Seminoles played inconsistent- ly. Impressive wins over Top 25 teams La Salle and South Florida contrasted with frus- trating losses to in-state rival Florida and Auburn. The Seminoles managed a 4- 2 record through the rocky sea- son setting up a nationally- televised showdown against top-ranked University of Ne- vada Los Vegas. The " Duel in the Desert " gave Florida State an opportunity to take a huge step in the national ranks. However, the warriors weren ' t ready to take this step. They lost the game 109-69 in front of a rough Las Vegas crowd. In late December, the Semi- noles hit the road for their first two Metro games. The tribe found out that Tulane had dra- matically improved from the previous year. After the loss, they faced top-25 ranked Southern Mississippi. Unfor- tunately, the Seminoles were defeated and returned home. The team chalked up two big conference wins against Cin- cinnati and Louisville. Their success continued against Stet- son and 22nd-ranked South Carolina. The game would be one of the season ' s best for the tribe as Doug Edwards scored seven points in overtime to guarantee an 81-80 win over the highly acclaimed Game- cocks. Their happiness was short lived when the Seminoles lost to Arkansas 109-92 and a heartbreaking loss to Memphis State 67-66. The seminoles wasted no time and regrouped to gain two victories over Virginia Tech and Tulane. With a 11-7 rec- ord and 5-3 Metro mark, the Seminoles turned towards the NCAA Tournament run. Wins over Alabama State, Jackson- ville, and Syracuse provided motivation as they entered the Metro conference play offs. The tribe struggled, but in the end, captured their first tour- nament title. Florida State fin- ished the season by accepting a bid to the NCAA tournament. Unfortunately, the Seminoles lost in round two of the tour- nament play.

The tal- ented sophomore from Thomasville, Georgia began his athletic career as a red- shirt, third string quarterback for the Seminoles. He also started as punter for the Tribe averaging 37.1 yards per kick and ran the ball sev- en times for 21 yards as a freshman. He decided to play basket- ball as something to keep him busy after football season was finished. Coach Pat Kennedy was in desperate need of a starting point guard. Ward took the position and became one of the key players for the Seminoles. " I believed I could play well and make a contribution to the team. It ' s always going to be a point of pride for me to look back and say I could play two sports on the Division I level, " Ward said. His athletic ability was never in question. " We knew about the athletic ability, but it wasn ' t until the fourth or fifth week of practice that we felt he would be a contrib- utor. He knows how to find the open man and he has in- credible instincts. His ability to get out in the transition and get it going is simply in- credible, " Kennedy said. As a starter. Ward aver- aged 11.1 points, 4.7 assists, 2.7 steals and 3.7 rebounds per game. Perhaps his most fantastic play of the season came when, with only 22 sec- onds left, he made a 30 foot three point shot to insure a 72-69 Seminole victory over Louisville in the Metro Tour- nament finals. The only damper on Ward ' s season was that it was probably his last. " I have to wait and talk to Coach Bowden about next year. He ' ll have the final say, " Ward said. Since he signed a football scholarship with Florida State, Coach Bobby Bowden had the last word on whether he would be playing basketball next season. He said Charlie would have to give up basketball to compete for the position of quarter- back for the 1992 season when Casey Weldon and Brad Johnson would have used up their eligibility. " I am pleased that Charlie is do- ing well. However, Charlie has to be a fulltime quarter- back next year, " Bowden said. Even though he will not be a part of the team next year, Charlie Ward ' s accomplish- ments won ' t be forgotten.

Seminole Basketball SCORES BIG Florida State entered the 1991 Metro Con- ference Tournament as the league ' s hottest team. After a 0-2 start in Metro play, the tribe came to Ro- anoke, Viginia, with a four game winning streak. Second ranked Florida state and sixth-seeded South Carolina met in the third game of the first day. " This contest would set the game of basketball back 40 years, " Coach Pat Kennedy said. With 10 minutes remaining in the first half, South Car- olina led 16-10. By the end, the tribe tied the score at 26. The second half was domi- nated by the Seminoles and they held on for a 65-55 win in the first round of play. The evening game matched Florida State with Virginia Tech. Chuck Graham led the Seminoles with 23 points off the bench. Doug Edwards scored 2 1 points and Charlie Ward recorded 10 with five assists and five steals. The easy 91-71 win over Virginia Tech set up a show- down between Louisville and the red-hot Seminoles in the finals. At the end of the first half, the Cardinals led 45-34. The Seminoles lagged behind in the second half and fell to a 56-36 deficit with only 1 7:08 remaining on the clock. Edwards scored two consec- utive baskets to help Florida State climb back into the game. Chuck Graham added two free throws and a three- pointer to set the stage for Charlie Ward. With only 22 seconds left to play. Ward de- livered a 30 foot three- pointer to break the 69-69 tie and hoisted the Seminoles to a 72-69 Metro Tournament Title win.

The sharp shooting squad ended the season with a 25- 7 overall received. The mark equals the Lady ' Noles all-time best record and their best record under Head Coach Marynell Meadors. The Seminoles were one of the highest scoring teams in the coun- try during the 90-91 season. The ladies averaged just under 84 points per game heading into the NCAA tournament. The team broke the century mark five times and set a new school record for most points in a game in its 114-71 thrashing of Stetson University, which shattered the mark of 1 1 set earlier in the year against Mar- quettes. The main reason for the ladies high scoring games may have had something to do with the fact that four starters shot better than 51 percent from the floor. The Seminole squad sat a top the team category for field goal per- centage in the NCAA ratings of March 5th. Bragging rights seemed to be- long to the Sem inoles experienced backcourt with All-American can- didate Wanda Bums and Robin Com, but Com went down with a knee injury in the second game of the season and qualified for med- ical hardship. It was the duty of sophomore Danille Ryan to fill the shoes of Com at the point guard position. Ryan couldn ' t have re- sponded with better leadership qualities and talent when called upon. Yet, Ryan was modest when she realized the job before her, but in this case, Ryan ' s actions over- shadowed her humble words. " At first I knew it would be a tough job because I had never played point guard before. It was a hard task to take after Corney (Robin Com), " Ryan said. With Ryan at the point, the Seminoles were 23-5 with losses to top ranked Virginia, third rated Georgia Tech, number five Au- burn and South Carolina. Despite those tough losses, the team rejoiced in defeating the 8th ranked Tigers of Louisana State University in the Championship game of the Tallahassee Hilton Classic, 89-82. Other highlights of the season included. " It was great to be in the top 25. The seniors worked so hard for it and I was glad to see it happen for them, " freshmen Christy Derlak responded. The top notch Seminoles also claimed the state championship for the second year in a row, down- ing all four opponents from the Sunshine State. Other milestones the Seminoles passes, included sharing the hon- ors of the regular season. Winning the Metro Conference title with South Carolina and winning the Metro Conference tournament championship for the first time in university history. In return, the Seminoles made their third ap- pearance in the NCAA tourna- ment. They received an automatic bid by winning the Metro and was seeded fifth in the Mideast Re- gion. In the first round game, the ' Noles defeated 12th seed Appa- lachian State University. It was the first time the team advanced past the initial round in the tour- nament. Meeting the challenging team of Western Kentucy in the second round, the ' Noles stumbled and fell to the Hilltoppers. " It was great to get past the jinx of the first round in the tourna- ment. It ' s a great feeling to know you ' re going to advance in such a prestigious tournament, " senior Kelli Test said. Although the Lady Seminole season ended in the second round, the bright future of the team was just in its beginning stages. In ad- dition to the return of nine players out of 13, plus a talented group of sex early signees, the ' Noles began play in the tradition rich ACC. The Lady Seminole basketball team can boast of a successfu rec- ord and the ruling of their last sea- son in the Metro conference. Cassy Bunn Seminoles Make A FIRST AND LAST They were holding a dream in their hands. They were the first ones to ever capture their desires and hold it high in the sky; the first team in the history of the university, at least. As Head Coach Marynell Meadors watched her Lady Seminole basketball team ac- cept the trophy for becoming the 1991 Metro Conference champions. ' T can ' t tell you how hard they worked for this, " Meadors said. No one may be able to ex- press just how much determi- nation and desire the Lady Seminoles had to have in their hearts and minds to capture the Metro Conference tourna- ment for the first time in the university ' s history. Although it did take hours of practice pushed by a dream. That dream began when the Seminoles reached a Metro Conference record of 12-2 in the regular season. In return, the ' Noles were places as the second seed in the tournament, but only by chance. The Lady Seminoles tied with South Car- olina for the regular season conference title and as a result had to flip a coin to determine the top seed of the tournament. The Lady Seminoles ripped through their first two games rompmg Cincinatti 89-51 and Louisville 83-70. The Semi- poles found themselves in the final game facing the old but familiar South Carolina. The Gamecocks finished their sea- son 22-8, while the Seminoles ended 24-6. With the help of a tenacious defense and a come-from- behind offensive effort, the Lady Seminoles won the Championship in its last year in the Metro Conference be- fore heading for the Atlantic Coast Conference. They earned the title by a single point with a 54-53 victory over the Gamecocks before 220 fans in the Commonwealth Con- vention Center in Lexington, Kentucky. The victory was as tough as everyone expected. The Lady Gamecock ' s Karen Middleton, who had four 3-pointers and guard Lori Joyner, who fin- ished with 19 points, did everything possible to put a stop to the driving force of Florida State. Part of that driving force in- cluded the tournament ' s Most Valuable Player, Wanda Burns. Burns lead all Seminole scores but she said that her sta- tistics were just a small part of her game plan. " I ' ve tried this season to bal- ance my individual stats and skills with the team ' s goals and I think I ' ve done that pretty well. I didn ' t try to go out and get the big stats every game becau se I wanted the team to be first. I just tried to be con- sistent in every game, " Burns said. The memory of being the first team to win the Metro Championships was a goal of many of the seniors on the squad. ' Tt ' s something I ' ll never forget. Every year I ' ve been here, one of our goals has been to win the championships. Winning it my senior year gives me a sense of accom- plishment and completeness, " Kelli Test said. The team reached many milestones during the 91 sea- son. One of the most memo- rable was winning the Metro title for the first time in their last year before starting ACC play.

The women ' s team took the Metro Conference champi- onship and the men ' s team broke five school records and placed at least seven swim- mers in the NCAA champi- onships held in Austin, Tex- as. The Lady Seminoles swim team fought off many set- backs in bringing their season to dramatic finish. First, two swimmers left the team just after the recruiting deadline passed. Then, senior Kathy Isackson, winner of two events at the 1990 Metro championship, had to bow out early in the season. Later, Anne Spaeder and Valerie Moore were both sidelined with shoulder injuries. Coach Marian Cassidy ' s team had a tough season. Still, the Lady Seminoles came into the Metro Confer- ence with their chins up. However, Florida State start- ed the last day of the tour- nament with a 34-point def- icit between them and the front-runner South Carolina. The picture changed as the Seminole squad pulled out a one-two finish on the last leg of the 200 meter butterfly. They also grabbed a last- second victory in the 200 me- ter breaststroke. Florida State ' s frenzied perfor- mances pared with the Lady Gamecocks lead to one point going into the final event, the 400 meter freestyle relay.

Though the men ' s season wasn ' t as dramatic as the women ' s, they still enjoyed a successful year. With a school-record seven entries in the NCA championships, the Seminoles staked their claim as a rising powerhouse. Captained by seniors Char- lie Rose and Craig Zettle, the men ' s team broke five school records this season. They also beat everyone but 16th ranked South Carolina in the Metro Conference champi- onships. Rose holds four school records, two each in individual and team events, while Zettle holds one school record. Zettle also holds back-to-back titles in the 1 00 meter breaststroke at the Metro Championships. At the Metro, the men knocked off the South Carolina squad in the 800 meter freestyle re- lay for the first time in five years. Diver Paul Spray won the Metro Diver of the Year award, and hoped to make a big impression at the NCAA ' s in Austin. The Seminole swim and dive program produced more than just able bodies. Twen- ty-five of these men and women made at least a 3.0 grade-point average, with about half of them topping a 3.5. The water sports pro- gram boasts more scholar- athletes than any other sport on campus. With those kinds of numbers, the coaching staff of Terry Maul, Sid Cas- sidy. Bill Shults, Gary Cole, and Marian Cassidy can cer- tainly be proud of their ath- letes. Mark McCarty Exhibiting A Sense Of Enthusiasm The men ' s tennis team was faced with a sea- son of change and in- centives. David Barron be- came the squad ' s new coach as he exhibited a new sense of enthusiasm. A graduate of the Univer- sity of Central Florida Com- munity College and a Junior College National Champion, Barron took the team over in August. His love for tennis was shown in his coaching methods. During the fall the men had good turnouts in Athens at the Southern Collegiate and in Gainesville at the Barnett Bank Classic. It was at the Barnett Bank Classic that Stephen Noteboom tast- ed his first victory by win- ning the men ' s singles. " Experience is one trait this team is not lacking, " Barron said. Five of the nine players on the team were seniors, in- cluding Chris Durham. Dur- ham saw more action than in previous seasons. As a soph- omore he posted a 5-6 singles record, winning five of his first seven matches. A noticeable change that affected the team was when Florida State joined the At- lantic Coast Conference. Competitors for the 92 sea- son included Duke, Virginia, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Clemson, the University of Maryland, the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State. With the increased compe- tition came increased facil- ities. Plans were approved for the construction of a new ten- nis complex that would house eight lighted courts and a viewing stadium. The courts were expected to be complet- ed by the spring of 1 992. " Florida State ' s tradition in academics and athletics has always been the main at- traction for students ' and their parents. Now the new tennis complex will demon- strate the willingness of the university to excel in their fa- cilities as well, " Barron said. The team was also awarded Florida State ' s sport academ- ic award. The award was giv- en to the men ' s team with the highest grade point average derived from the previous spring and fall cumulative gpa. This was the third year that the men ' s tennis team claimed the award.

ZULMA CRESPO ZULMA CRESPO SPORT 121 Setting A Reachable Goal Five returning veterans and three newcomers set the pace for the Lady Seminole tennis team. " This team ' s strength was depth and versatility, " Coach Patti Henderson said. The Lady Seminoles took on the number two ranked Lady Gators, Duke, North Carolina, and Wake Forest. They also saw action against strong SEC squads. Louisi- ana State, Alabama, Missis- sippi State, Rice, Houston and Trinity created havoc for the determined team. Leading the Lady Semi- noles were seniors Buffy Ba- ker and Ann Waggoner. Ba- ker became one of the university ' s finest, with a ca- reer high of 25 vic tories over a period of three consecutive years. Waggoner, an All- Metro player and transfer from Tennessee, put her best foot forward and helped lead the Lady Seminoles to vic- tory. Returning juniors Nicky Ivy and Chrissie Tee provid- ed many valuable points be- hind the lead of the two seni- ors. Sophomore Laura Sarkhaliti returned to the courts after a few injuries sus- tained in the beginning of the 89-90 season. The newcomers to the team were freshmen Audra Brannon, junior Robin Cifaldi and freshmen Jenni- fer Hyde. Brannon was ranked in the top 75 nation- ally, while Cifaldi hailed from rival Trinity and boast- ed a fifth place ranking with the Eastern Tennis Associa- tion. Jennifer Hyde added to the doubles defense and daz- zled spectators with her young expertise. The team ' s number one goal was to leave the Metro Conference Championship as winners. " Since it ' s our last year in the conference, I want the girls to take the title. They deserve it for how hard they ' ve worked, " Henderson said. The team reached their goal by defeating South Car- olina 46-42 and captured the prestigious crown. Along with the rest of the athletic programs at the uni- versity, the ladies ' tennis team joined the Atlantic Coast Conference. " I am excited about joining the country ' s most presti- gious athletic and academic conference. It has given us eight new rivals and they will provide a real challenge for us. It will definitely be in- teresting to see who comes out on top, " Henderson said. With the energy and deter- mination dislpayed by the Lady Seminoles, focusing on the upcoming ACC rivalries was not an unreasonable task. Amy Shinn mm ' omK,!: •-«« Relaying A Sense Of Achievement A steady group of re- turnees and a great recruiting class made the Men ' s Track team a fa- vorite among the Metro Con- ference tournament compet- itors. The Seminoles defended their 14 consecu- tive conference titles with en- thusiasm and pride. This Metro tournament was the last the men would compete in because they joined the At- lantic Coast Conference, along with the other 16 var- sity sports on campus. The men endured a hard regular season schedule by competing in and hosting the Snow Bird Open, the Relays and the Seminole Twilight meets. They also tackled Col- orado, North Carolina, Illi- nois, and Florida A M Uni- versity in a grueling four way meet. Chris Sloan, Darren Nutt, Tom Gerrets, and John Rothell made an immediate impact on the hurdle event when they left their oppo- nents in the dust. Junior Jason Frank and sophomore Rob Circelli led the Seminoles in the middle and long distance runs. Fol- lowing close behind were Mark Bednarz and newcom- ers Philip Healy and Micheal Hampton. Metro javelin champion Chris Keen and versatile Eric Chambers paired up with Ail- American Scott Peterson to put a stop to their compe- tition. Jumpers and top returnees James Milton and Kevin Crist gave admirable perfor- mances, while Kelsey Nash mastered the triple jump. " I will be surprised if Milton isn ' t a national quahfier in both indoor and outdoor events, " Coach Terry Long said. Matthew Terry and Art Nelson also contributed to the overall expertise of the jumpers. The Seminoles de- feated their Metro rivals to win their title as champions. With nine returning All- Americans to the Lady Semi- noles Track team, high expec- tations were set for a Metro tournament title. " Our talent level was excellent, " Long said. The lady Seminoles per- servered and became the vic- tors in the tournament. Sophomore Patrice Ver- dun joined freshmen Natalie Douglas, Tracey Ray, and Sheryl Covington for the daz- zling performances of the sprint and relay teams. Aun- drea Lyons, Angela Harris, and Carmellia Shivers helped out with the 1,600m relay event. The hurdles event was based primarily on the scor- ing ability of Kim Batten. She had already set a school rec- ord in the 100m hurdles and challenged the national titles in each of her events. Carmellia Shivers, Candi Odom, and Kim Mann added stunning perfomances and amazing depths to these areas. The 3,200m relay team was ranked sixth in the national polls. Carrie Boyd, Angela Harris, Tracy Howze, and Karla Severs proved to be quite competitive against all of their opponents and once again hoisted the Lady Semi- noles to greater heights. Tonya Grannemann re- turned to head the Lady Seminoles. Heidi Hargett contributed her javelin expe- rience to the team.

Wasn ' t It A Striking Season : llorida State ' s roster included 15 newcom- ers, four returning players, as well as four re- turning pitchers. Head coach Mike Martin relied on untest- ed talent in crucial situations. His squad faced one of the toughest schedules in their history. " Our schedule this year was as tough as any in the nation, " Martin said. There were ten games with in-state rivals Miami, who were ranked 4th, and Florida, ranked 17th. Three schedule features were the preseason games with number one ranked Arizona State. Other ranked teams on the schedule were Arizona, Michigan, Louisiana State, Minnesota, Southern Miss, and South Carolina. " This was interesting be- cause it was one of the few years in my 12 years that we didn ' t have a lot of experi- ence on the mound. We ' ll be counting heavily on some young pitchers, " Martin said. Fortunately, Martin had four returning hurtlers which included Freshmen All- Americans Roger Bailey and Chris Roberts, who were starters. The third and fourth starting positions were in competition between new- comers Jimmy Lewis, Kenny Robinson and LaWhit Lizzmore. Freshmen John Wasdin and Bryan Harris also vied for the positions. Ricky Kimball returned as the Seminoles ' relief ace. Tim Davis served as back up re- lief. California native Bobby Femandes contributed as an important starter. The fresh- men trio, Jeff Tibbitts, David Schumacher, John McNeese and sophomore John Nedeau were tested as reliefs as well. On the offense, the leading returnee was junior second basemen Allen Bevis. First basemen Eduardo Perez and catcher Pedro Grifol. At third base, Nandy Serrano checked in. Link Jarrett and Tony Liebsack gave their all at shortstop, Kenny Felder was the start- er in left field. Along with Chris Roberts, they were the power threat of Florida State. Defense was the strength of the players who started in center and right fields. Gar- rett Blanton received the cen- terfield position. In right field was Chris Brock. With the combination of Brock, Blanton and Roberts, the team had an excellent defen- sive outfield. Three catchers, Jon Bolin, Marc Dunbar, and Michele Bertoldi played behind Grifol because of their lack in experience. Ty Mueller and Terrell Buckley backed up the Blanton, Brock, Felaer, and Roberts foursome. Walk- on Sid Cash also backed up Perez. The Seminoles entered the season ranked 1 2th, The pre- vious season saw them daz- zling the experts and surpris- ing everyone with a fantastic tournament record.

" Chris did most of the work for us today with the bat and his arm, " Martin said. Rob- erts pitched 7 1 3 innings, giving up a mere seven hits and three runs. He also went 3 for 3 with a double and an RBI. " It was a great day for me. That ' s why coach Martin let me pitch and hit. He feels I can do those things well, " Roberts said.

Amy Shinn Rice Catches A New Attitude Warm breezes, sun- ny afternoons, the smell of hot dogs and popcorn meant only one thing, base- ball and Softball seasons were in full swing once again. For the Lady Seminoles, the sea- son was bittersweet. Senior catcher JuHe Rice developed a whole new perspective about her career as a softball player and she attributed it to the knee injury she suffered last year. Rice had been the starting catcher for the Lady Semi- noles since her freshman year in 1987. Her statistics and playing abilities had steadily increased every year. She earned the honor of being the team captain and was chosen as a member to the second team in the All-South region. However, Rice ' s story was not one to be bombarded with statistical figures. Rice admitted that softball was a major area in her Ufe before her knee injury. Dur- ing the summer of 1 990, Rice had to stay in Tallahassee for rehabilitation. " Nobody was here over the summer. After rehab I would go home and have a lot of time on my hands, " Rice said. She used that extra time to reflect on her attitude towards softball. She knew that she would be- come a different kind of play- er. " This year was different. When we played the other teams, I didn ' t think about how many runs I had, or how I was doing. I didn ' t think about how we were executing as a team. I just tried to do my best for the team, " Rice said. The knee injury slowed her down when she ran the bases, but another injury to the shoulder also hindered her throwing ability on the dia- mond. She felt that some- times her shoulder affected her more than her knee. It managed to knock her out of the starting Hne for half of the games. She was behind the plate when second string sen- ior catcher Lora Migliaccio received the pitches from Christy Larsen. " Lora gets to catch now, too. She never got much play- ing time and she has been practicing and going to games just as long as I have. It ' s really great to see her catch. I ' m really happy for her, " Rice said. The unselfish attitude of Rice had been noticed by her teammates. Senior outfielder Becky Harrison said, " Her outlook on softball is a lot different from last year. It doesn ' t matter to her so much anymore. A lot of her attitude change has to do with her injury, but God played a part too. " Rice spent most of her spare time reading the Bible during her rehabilitative summer. She believed that her injury slowed her down for a purpose. It not only changed her view of the sport, but it also made her look at her educational goals. Rice was a nutritional fit- ness major and she planned to go to a physical therapy school somewhere in her hometown of Washington. She was always unsure of her future goals, but eventually, Rice decided to pursue a ca- reer in physical therapy. Head softball coach Joanne Graf still looked for Julie Rice to be a strong asset to her team, despite her in- juries. " Julie got stronger when her knee got back into shape. She ' s a great member of our team, " Graf said. Cassy Bunn m - mm .

Larsen played first, sec- ond and third base, but she showed tremendous strength in her pitching abilities. Coach Graf placed her on the mound with one condition, that she would assume a lead- ership position. Larsen had been called a utility player, but now her teammates were calling her a leader. " She ' s our leader when she ' s on the field. She says stuff to pump us up. She ' s also a good pitcher, so we fol- low her when we ' re on the field, " Susan Buttery, soph- omore outfielder said. Larsen didn ' t really see herself as a leader. " I guess I show leadership on the field, but I really don ' t show it off the field. " Nevertheless, her team- mates saw her as an incred- ible athlete and they also looked to her for guidance. Larsen attributed most of her abilities to her team. " I ' ve seen so much team- work this season that I be- Intense concentration shows on the face of outfielder Su- san Buttery, as she prepares to swing at an oncoming pitch against Drexel University. lieve that the togetherness of the team has brought out the best in me. We ' re better than last year because we play as a team, " she said. Catcher Julie Rice, who was Larsen ' s teammate for four years, said she has seen an improvement in her atti- tude throughout the years. " Christy is more of a leader now than in the past. She has matured a lot since her fresh- men year. She takes care of herself off the field too. She ' s much more team oriented. " The closeness of the team excited Larsen because she believed that cohesiveness was the key to the Lady Semi- noles team. Larsen was a key to the team ' s success. She pitched 1 5 shut-outs and four no-hitters last year and at the close of the regular season, she was second in the nation averaging 7.9 strikeouts per seven innings. Coach Graf was satisfied with her selection to position Larsen on the mound. She proved to be a strong pitcher and vocal leader.

The sea- son started with a team com- posed of 12 freshmen, one sophomore, two juniors, and two seniors. With a predom- inantly new squad, the Semi- noles worked hard to rebuild and reload. The men placed first in the Forest Hills Invitational, sec- ond in the Florida State In- tercollegiate and fourth in th South East Intercollegiate as well as the Budget UCF Clas- sic. Senior Christian Williams, an AU-American candidate, exhibited his expertise as he joined forces with senior An- thony Ballestero and junior Dustin Phillips in the provi- sion of leadership for their teammates. Coach Verlyn Giles expect- ed his team to gain experi- ence with each tournament. " The talent of the young players, along with the guid- ance of the elder golfers will allow the squad to develop confidence and strength as the season progressed, " he said. The team ' s success on the national level was coupled with the success in the Metro Conference as Giles led his squad to titles in 1 1 of the 1 2 seasons. The Seminoles earned their first NCAA bid since 1983. The Men ' s golf roster read as follows: Anthony Balles- tero, Chris Cavanagh, Bobby Cochran, Jason Doyle, Chad Eunice, Corey Hamlin, Da- vid Holt, Chip Johnson, Mat- thew Koff, Dustin Phillips, Christian Raynor, Daniel Read, Keith Rick, Kenneth Staton, Dennis Tymosko, Christian Williams, and Tony Ziegler. Placing many Seminole golfers in the pros, coach Giles led a program boasting many winners on both the Ladies Professional Golf As- sociation and the Profession- al Golf Association tours. Overall, the team was des- tined to an outstanding per- formance. Gail Burton SPORTS INFO. 135 A ' fter teeing off, Bobby Cochran watches his shot .soar down the fairway.

The team has played with a lot of pride and intensity, which are two key ingredients to a winning season, " Debbie Miles-Dillman, coach of the Women ' s Golf team, said. Traveling to Las Cruces, New Mexico, the Lady ' Noles participated in the Diet Coke Lady Roadrunner Invi- tational and ranked third. Emma Rundle proved her talent of consistency as she became the co-individual champion of the tournament. The Lady Seminoles were proudly ranked fifth in the country, with four of their players as top contenders in the top 1 00 golfers in the na- tion. Erica Fimhaber contin- ued to dazzle coaches, team- mates and opponents as she won the Illinois State Ama- teur in June. She also led her teammates in the annual Lady Seminole Invitational and the Beacon Woods In- vitational. Named player of the year at her high school, Emma Rundle brilliantly portrayed her skills in every tourna- ment. Last year she placed in the top 20 in eight of Florida State ' s tournaments. Maria Castelucci was dis- tinguished as a two-time American Junior Golf Asso- ciation Woodlands Champi- on and was a top candidate for the AJGA Player of the Year. She was the leader when the Lady Seminoles po- sitioned first in the FlU-Pat Bradley Invitational. Labeled as one of the most disciplined players on the golf course, Canadian Marie- Josee Rouleau rounded out the top four qualifiers. Rou- leau had served as the Que- bec junior team captain as well as a national team mem- ber for the Canadian Ladies Golf Association. Mary Lee Cobick contin- ued to perfect her abilities as she returned to the Lady Seminoles with Rundle as one of the two elder team members. " Mary Lee is a very solid player and is a guaranteed top five player on a nationally ranked team, " Coach Dillman said. Four more golfers, Kelly Pittman, Kathleen Garrahan, Carrie Wallace, and Tiffany Faucette all complemented the team as they contributed with constant improvement. Youth and enthusiasm continued to pay off for the Lady Seminoles as coach Dillman responded to the competitive attitude of the squad. A Lady Seminole golf- er herself, Dillman illustrated her knowledge of the sport of golf. The array of talent pro- vided by these university golfers was certainly ex- pressed through the combi- nation of her experience and her team ' s abilities. Gail Burton Competing With Our Own Excitement was in the air as the Intramural season began. Friends, fraternities, sorori- ties and classmates teamed up to compete for the pres- tigious title of intramural champions. " We had a great turnout and I think everyone had a great time, " John Blihar, As- sistant Director of In- tramurals, said. Flag football was the sport which kicked off the season. " The Firemen " captured the men ' s title, and Delta Gam- ma sorority swept the wom- en ' s division. " All Hype " emerged as the winners in the co-recreational division. Indoor volleyball saw championship action from the brothers of Delta Tau Delta fraternity and Kappa Delta sorority. The basketball events saw outstanding performances by the men ' s team " Supreme Court. " " Completely Ran- dom " won the ladies ' title, while the co-recreational teams were undecided. " The Juggernauts " amazed their opponents and captured the men ' s soccer title, while members of " Limelight " were the victors in the wom- en ' s division. Phi Delta Theta dominat- ed the men ' s Softball field. " Just Betty ' s " wound up the winners in the women ' s league, while the co- recreational sensation, " Prime Timeless, " came out on top. The fall raquetball compe- tition came to a dramatic close when Jeff Bowman cap- tured the men ' s crown. Bow- man and his partner Stacy Shuman also grabbed the doubles title. In the spring. Jason Greenberg won the men ' s singles, while Bonnie Oliver won the women ' s sin- gles. Barry and Jason Green- berg took the men ' s doubles title. Joanie Strogis and Stephanie Lohman received the women ' s doubles honors. John Ghirardini claimed the rights to the men ' s singles tennis title in the fall. Tanya Racoobia became the wom- en ' s singles champion, while the combined efforts of Mas- cani and Hanna insured the men ' s doubles win. The mixed doubles honor went to Liberti and Gampher. In the Spring, John Ghirardini worked his magic and won the men ' s singles title again. Diane Liberti was dazzling in the women ' s finals and the Su brothers took the men ' s dou- bles crown. The foul shooting compe- tition produced a few inter- esting results. For the Garnet Division, Sigma Phi Epsilon won the event. Phi Sigma Kappa made it to the top of the Gold Division, claiming the title. Pi Beta Phi also took high honors. In the men and women ' s individuals, Sean Higbea and Becky Huff claimed the prizes, respec- tively. The field goal kicking achievement went to Eugene Bardakjy. The independent team " The Hoopsters " grabbed the 3 on 3 men ' s bas- ketball honors. Aside from the regular competition between all of the teams, the sororities and fraternities battled it out for Greek bragging rights. The beach volleyball craze ended with a Lambda Chi Alpha and Kappa Alpha Theta prizewinning package. Putt Putt golfing was con- trolled by Phi Mu sorority. In the swimming contests. Alpha Gamma Delta made it to the top. The Garnet and Gold Divisions produced Lambda Chi and Sigma Chi as their kings. The wrestling event saw Gold Division ' s Sigma Chi and Garnet ' s Sigma Pi ad- vance as the champions. The Garnet and Gold Di- visions recognized top teams from Theta Chi and Phi Sig- ma Kappa, respectively. The track highlights included Theta Chi, representing the Garnet teams, and the Sigma Chi fraternity members of the Gold team, claiming their prizes. The Greek bowling compe- tition was taken by Phi Sigma Kappa in the Gold Division. FIJI received top honors for the Garnet division and Kap- pa Kappa Gamma was the overall sorority winner. Pi Kappa Phi and Theta Chi placed first in the Gold and garnet divisions, respec- tively, in the fraternity ra- quetball competition. There was a tie between Delta Gam- ma and Kappa Alpha Theta for the first place merit. The golf awards went to Sigma Chi of the Gold Di- vision and Lambda Chi of the Garnet Division. As always, intramurals provided an outlet for every- day stress, a regular exercise program and yet a new way to meet people on campus. " The competition was in- tense, but fun. It ' s great to see the participation level grow each season, " Mike Rondow, Supervisor of Officials, said. Amy Shinn ' ' «sf % ■ ♦v Y -• . ■••i- - U ' ' •!?. . vN ' Xw A ' % ♦« f 4 •- • •• ' .

Turning The I Other Cheek ' Sports fans usually paid close attention to a few key aspects of the game such as the players, the score, the plays and the referees. The only time a referee might get recognition was when their call was controversial or when an angered fan voiced their opinion. They were of- ten seen getting kicked, punched, cursed or yelled at. The intramural referees take an enormous amount of grief from the players. " It ' s really rough when you make a call and someone starts screaming in your face. Some of the players take the games much too seriously. Some- times it ' s hard to turn the other cheek, " Soccer and vol- leyball referee John Living- stone said. The qualifications for be- ing a referee was basically having a good attitude. " We want people to partcipate. We were looking for a few people with good personali- ties and who were willing to put up with a lot, " Supervisor of Officials Mike Rondow said. Experience wasn ' t a neces- sity for the energetic group of men and women because pre- season classroom and on the field clinics were held for all of the referees. During these clinics, they learned general rules and terminology for each sport. They were given informal exams to test their knowledge and placed ac- cordingly. After the training, the referees were responsible for everything going smooth- ly. " The referees are the back- bone of the program. They symbolize a control in the game match and are taken se- riously. Without them, the teams would have to officate their own games, like other major universities, and I don ' t think it would work, " John Blihar, Assistant Direc- tor of Intramurals, said. Overall, the students who participated in intramurals were sportsmanlike and pro- fessional. Rondow said, " The players knew they could come to the supervisor and complain if they had a major problem and it would get tak- en care of. " John Livingstone summed up the experience by saying, " It was a really fun job. I met a lot of people. I finally un- derstand the cheerful, fun competitiveness around cam- pus.

Men ' s fall and spring sin- gles champion, John Ghirardini slices a fierce backhand shot against his oppo- nent. Sporting A m New Attitude Sportsmanship was the name of the game ac- cording to the rules and regulations of the intra- mural sports. A code of con- duct and sportsmanship rat- ing policy was adopted by the university to ensure order during all intramural events. " We expect the same be- havior and respect as in a classroom. A professor wouldn ' t get hit for issuing a bad grade and a referee won ' t either for making a bad call. There are rules which every- one will follow if they want to play, " Assistant Intramural Director, John Blihar said. Referees were required to rate both teams on their con- duct after the completion of the game, on a scale of to 5, with being the lowest. All teams must have maintained an average of a 3 to be el- igible for the playoffs at the end of the season. Regardless of their ranking, if a team had an overall poor sportsman- ship rating, then they didn ' t participate in the playoffs. The intramural committee was planning to reorganize and redefine each level of the rating system, creating a stricter policy. " We want the program to move in a positive direction. The students will abide by the rules or they simply won ' t play. It ' s basically an ap- proach to a new attitude. We want everyone to know that we ' re quite serious about misconduct, " Blihar said. " The last thing we need is a shouting match between an official and a player. We re- alize that we might lose some people because of the new rating, but we ' ll still have plenty of participants, " add- ed Rondow. The new system and code of conduct had to meet the approval of vice president of student affairs, John Dalton. Blihar said, " I think it will meet everyone ' s needs. We ' re just here to have a good time. " Amy Shinn During a tense moment in the matcli, Lee Jolnnson covers liis partner, Jolin Knoll, as lie splices one over the net.

" Sororities, for the most part held rush only once in the fall a week prior to the first week of classes. Frater- nities, on the other hand, for the most part, held their rush during the first week of class- es each semester. Sororities had a very drawn out process to select future members. During the week, girls visited each house and watched lawn routines, skits and learned about the girls and different houses they hoped to be part of On the first day an information meeting was held and girls were split up, alphabetically, into rush groups while Rho Chi ' s were placed to help lead the groups. Rho Chi ' s were preselected members from each sorority who showed outstanding Greek leadership and were chosen to help take rushees through the weeks ac- tivities. " Before every party there were always a few extra min- utes to fix yourself up, it was so hot outside that the extra minutes helped a lot, " fresh- men Jennifer Bambuch said. On the first official two days of rush, the girls visited all the sorority houses, and participated in " ice water " parties. They were called this, because at each house ice wa- ter was served and girls were given a brief introduction to the sororities and Greek life. After the " ice water " par- ties, information day fol- lowed. Here, information about the sorority was given to potential sorority mem- bers to make them aware of financial and time obliga- tions. This gave the rushees an easier way to help limit their final decision. After information day, the rushees went back and took part in skit day. Here rushees saw skits at five different so- rorities. After seeing the skits, rushees once more nar- rowed down their selections and prepared for the prefer- ential parties. " It was so difficult to nar- row them down. I liked so many, and I had no idea how I would ever decide, " junior Susie Metz said. By the end of the week, through mutual selection be- tween the sororities and rushees, each girls had the opportunity to visit up to three houses again where they atended preferential parties. Here the final selec- tions were made by both par- ties and the next day the girls learned where their new home would be. They flocked in hordes as they waited for their bid cards, with hopes and dreams of what would lie ahead. With their card in hand, each girl went off to her selected house and was greet- ed by her sisters. Pictures were taken, parties were held and their pledgeship began. Fraternities recruited their members through a more laid back approach. During the week, parties were held at fra- ternity houses in hopes of se- lecting and getting the creme of the crop. Often fraternities enticed people to come to their houses by having local bands play or having the Golden Girls perform. Usu- ally every night, they had some sort of theme unique to each separate fraternity. Bids were given to potential mem- bers throughout the week, with these bids came pledge- ship for the months ahead. Rush was a fairly intense, yet fun process of member selection. It helped bind the fraternities and sorority members closer together at the same time prepared them for their pledges who would be the future of their organ- ization. R Tricia Timmons week. ushees found that the long hours they put into making themselv( look thier best, were often worthless because the heat and hi nnidity very common to RUSH, took its toll on everyone during th uys found RUSH to be somewhat easier that the girls. At parties __ they could hang out with their friends and meet the brothers. KA Kappa Alpha ' s main philanthropy was the Mus- cular Distrophy Associa- tion. They did several things to benefit MDA, such as holding car washes rather than holding one large money raising event. Kappa Alpha held Haunted Block with Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Alpha Tau Omega. The fraterni- ties decorated their houses and children from the community came and trick-or-treated. Kappa Al- pha also worked with the Big Brother Big Sister pro- gram. Kappa Alpha held many socials such as Champagne Jam with Pi Phi and an Around the World social with Tri Delta. They held their annual October Fest social with Lambda Chi, Delta Gamma and Alpha Delta Pi in the fall, and their second annual Fan- tasy Island social with Sig- ma Alpha Epsilon, Gam- ma Phi beta, and Alpha Chi Omega. They held two hay rides and their Crim- son Rose formal in the fall. In addition they held their annual Old South, which was a week of festivities including a formal, a pa- rade, a picinic at the pres- ident ' s mansion, a picinic at Pebble Hill Plantation and ended with a weekend at the beach. Kappa Alpha won Greek Week with their pairing, Kappa Alpha The- ta. They also won Alpha Delta Pi ' s Gong Show, and brother John Yearty was recognized by IFC as Fra- ternity President of the Year. " I think what stands out about us the most is the southern ideals we carry of how to treat a lady and how to be chivalrous, " Mike Hudson said. ZBT Zeta Beta Tau held a Mud Volleyball Tourna- ment in order to raise money for the Luekemia Society this year. Frater- nities and sororities got muddy to raise about $2,000. Zeta Beta Tau also held a soccer tournament to raise money for DARE and the Miami Hope Proj- ect, and they held a fund- raiser to benefit Stop Can- cer. Zeta Beta Tau found the time for an active social life as well, including Barbeques and socials with sororities such as Al- pha Gamma Delta, Sigma Kappa, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Phi Mu. They had a formal in Jack- sonville, a hayride and they also took tubing trips down the Itchnitokne. They and thier Greek Week pairing received a free social at the Mill for raising the most money at Dance-A ' Thon. Zeta Beta Tau was unique in the fact that they had no pledging period. New members went through rush, then get ini- tiated, and then began to learn about the fraternity through their big brothers, " It ' s good because you don ' t get hazed, " Mike Dunond said, " You ' re not fooling anyone to do any- thing they don ' t want to. " 148 STEPPING Direction Anew year brought much excitement with it. New class- es, new faces and new pledges which uhimately led to new sisters and broth- ers. Pan Greeks had a lot to look forward to besides new pledges, they had socials, philanthropic events and The Extravaganza. The Extravaganza was a Stepping Show held on Oct. 13, when Pan Greek frater- nities and sororities compet- ed to see who could step the best. The Pan Greeks took the Extravaganza very seri- ously and started preparing for the event three months prior. Each fraternity and so- rority selected seven mem- bers of their best ' steppers ' and began choreographing their moves at the end of the summer. " Pan Greeks take their stepping very seriously, " Mi- chael Leeks, Pan Greek pres- ident said, " they practice for months on end to perfect their routines. " The Pan Greek system held the Extravaganza since Pan Greeks first came on campus around 1983. The event proved to be a hugh success and has benefited local phi- lanthropies and helped create and enhance scholarship funds. Pan Greeks prided them- selves on their philanthropic events and their contribu- tions to improving their scholarly image, on which they placed emphasis. Collec- tively, Pan Greeks worked to- gether to benefit the Urban League, the Run Away Shel- ter Home, have participated in blood drives and helped with the Frenchtown Clean Up project. Individually, the Pan Greeks participated sev- eral service projects to ben- efit various causes. Winners of the Extrava- ganza were Alpha Phi Alpha for the fraternities and Delta Sigma Theta for the sorori- ties. Each prided themselves in their victory at the event, and also enjoyed the time they spent bonding with their own organizations as well as with the rest of the Pan Greek community. The Extravaganza was a special part of the Pan Greek community. They even had various stepping displays in the union throughout the year to show their " stuff. " It gave them an opportunity to compete while benefiting a worthy cause. The months spent practicing and the pride they showed among themselves was visible throughout the year in their philanthropic events and on campus. " We are only looking ahead, " Leeks said, " With each passing year we are only getting stronger. " Tricia Timmons AOA members show their stuff as they go on their way to claim first place among the fraternities at Extrava- ganze.

In the fall they held their FIJI Football Run, when their chapter in Gainseville ran the foot- ball half way and the FSU chapter ran it up to the stadium prior to teh FSU- UF game to benefit the American Heart Associa- tion through donations adn sponsorships. In the spring, they raised money for the St. Thomas Moore soup kitchen, when they held their annual Kidnap Kaper. Sorority presidents, house moms and social chairmen were captured and held in the FIJI house for ransom — cans of food. The event proved to be a huge suc- cess. They also participat- ed in over 3000 hours of social and community ser- vice. They participated in the Heart n ' Soul Classic (a 5K run), the Spring Fix and gave time to the kids at Children ' s Lighthouse. They also helped tutor kids at community high schools. FIJI held several deck parties, a Skate social with Delta Gamma, a Grafitti social with Kappa Kappa Gamma and a What Did I Do Over Spring Break So- cial with Sigma Kappa. Along with the regular so- cial series, FIJI found time to hold a hayride, their FIJI Obsession Crush So- cial, their Black Daimond Ball Formal and their Is- lander Party. " We have the tight knit brotherhood of a small fra- ternity and the achieve- ments of a large one; brothers Jeff Sens and Chris Noll said. Alpha Epsilon Pi worked a great deal with underpriviliged and abused childr en. They par- ticipated in the Big Broth- er program and an Adopt - A-Child Day, where they and a sorority pairing took kids to a football game. During the year Alpha Epsilon Pi found time to enjoy themselves. They had a Regional Conference gathering with Sigma Delta Tau, a hayride and their Founder ' s Day Formal at the Tallahassee Hilton. " The guys here are real- ly great. Being a fairly small fraternity, it creates the situation where you have an interesting and close knit group of guys, " Scott Regen said. SAE Sigma Alpha Epsilon raised over four thousand dollars for computers for local schools. They also raised money for the Unit- ed Way and March of Dimes. During the year, Sigma Alpha Epsilon found time to particpate in a Toga party with Zeta Tau Al- pha, a Snowed-In social and a Christmas Party. They also managed to have a hayride and their Paddy Murphy Formal. " It ' s nice to go where you have a lot of friends, " Taylor Pollock said. " The guys are down to earth and real, the diversity and sin- cerity of the guys creates the strong brotherhood we pride ourselves on, " Bart Abstein added. 150 MOVING Delta Zeta members looked forward to this Christmas with eagerness and anticipation. Christmas break was the expected com- pletion date of the one mil- lion dollar renovation and expansion project of their so- rority house. The entire house was ex- panded outward, nearly dou- bling its length. A third floor was added and the entire in- side was remodeled. The house, which held about 30 girls prior to the expansion was now able to hold 79 girls. This made the Delta Zeta house the largest on campus in terms of housing capacity. The expansion was in the planning stages for two years. Delta Zeta decided to expand the house in order to accomo- date their growing chapter. " We felt that having more people living in the house would yield a closer group, " Dana Morgan said. " Living in the house gets you a lot more involved with the so- rority and brings you closer together. " The sorority ran into a few obstacles in making their plans a reality. Construction was originally supposed to start in the spring but was postponed because of prob- lems in obtaining the neces- sary loan. The entire plan was about to fall through when Delta Zeta ' s nationals stepped in. They helped get the loan approved and found contractors and architects to do the work. Delta Zeta also ran into or- dinance and zoning problems because the house was so old. Construction finally got un- der way in the summer and was rescheduled to be fin- ished by the end of the fol- lowing semester. However, the completion was delayed and the girls were not able to move in until the middle of February. Contractors were still finishing up the smaller details in March. Delta Zeta retired the Sig- ma Sigma Sigma house while waiting for the renovations to be complete. Tri Sigma went off campus for a year leaving Delta Zeta with a place to live in and hold rush for the fall semester. Rather than the normal tour of the house on Information Day of Rush, rushees got to see plans and models for the new house. Living in a different house required many adjustements on the part of the sorority. " We had to get used to it. We were gald we had some- where to go, but we were real- ly anticipating the comple- tion of our new house, " Jamie Summers said. Even moving back into the house turned out to be com- plicated. Delta Zeta had only a six hour period in which to transport all of their belong- With the TIMES ings. That was all the time there was between the com- pletion of their house and the end of the rent period at the Tri Sig house. Several Lamb- da Chi Alpha pledges came out and helped. Delta Zeta was paired with Lambda Chi for Greek Week. Despite the many compli- cations Delta Zeta was very excited about the completion of the new house. " I really enjoy going to the house. I spend a lot more time there now. It ' s different getting used to a new house. It ' s get- ting to be more like home for me, " Susie Kennedy said. Jennifer Wheeler Kim Wester and Shelby Harkness gather up their belongings as they head to their new rooms in the reno- vated AZ house.

I have great hopes for the future, " Tiffany Pesonen said. $M : 4h P AAA Delta Delta Delta kept their year interesting with many socials.

At their State Day, where all the chapters in Florida came together to meet, they won the largest chap- ter award. Phi Mu had several so- cials throughout the year. Among them were the Graffiti social with Sigma Chi, the Untouchables so- cial with Delta Tau Delta, and a Baby Bash with The- ta Chi.

They also held a hayride, FIESTA Social, F.I.T.S. parties and a Rose Ball Formal in Jacksonville. The Pi Kapps prided themselves on their ac- complishments. They not only held many philan- thropic events, but won the intramural gold divi- sion in basketball and soc- cer, finishing second over- all. srp nK$ Pi Kappa Phi held many philanthropic events throughout the year. They held Midnight Madness which consisted of Greek Week pairings competing in a bowling tournament, a wheelchair push — where a wheelchair was pushed from Gainesville to Talla- hassee with the help of their brother chapter.

Fo- cusing on community ser- vice, thier purpose was best expressed through their slogan " Greater Ser- vice, Greater Progress. " COURTESY A1 P GREEKS A BUDDING " Starting your own frater- nity is a lot of work. You ' re trying to do so many things at once. You ' re trying to build name recognition. You ' re trying to get a house. You ' re constantly rushing and you ' re trying to help the new mem- bers get started. But it ' s worth it, " David Blount, Del- ta Sigma Phi ' s secretary, said. Delta Sigma Phi was a new fraternity that organized a colony campus in the spring semester. " A lot of new fraternities start out with a group of friends getting together and petitioning national fraterni- ties for a charter. This one was the other way around, " said David Blount. He said Pat Reiss recieves a bid to join AZ0 from Mike Eisenburg. The fraternity was required to have 25 members and have participated in two phil- anthropic events before being recognized by IFC. that the fraternity is strong in the North and the West and the national representatives decided they wanted to get a better foothold in the South. " We came to FSU becuase the Greek system is strong and it plays a intregal part in the national Greek system as a whole, " Scott Ficek, Delta Sig ' s national leadership con- sultant, said. " We ' re excited to be here becuase it ' s a great campus. " Delta Sig ' s first group of pledges consisted of about 1 5 men. They traveled to Stet- son University to be initiated because Delta Sigma Phi bi- laws require that brothers be initiated at a charter chapter. The second group of pledges Delta Sigma Phi members Keith Colger, Kelly Hagerback, David Blount, John Marshall and Thomas Kelly proudly exhibit their invitation for men to join them. AIO decided to join campus because of the strong fraternal existence here. Brother- hood were initiated at the Univer- sity of Alabama at Birming- ham and they planned to in- itiate their fall pledges at Georgia Tech. New fraternities must meet several Inter-Fraternity Council requirements before they are allowed to come on campus. They must petition IFC in order to be allowed to try to start a chapter here. Delta Sig was selected among several other national frater- nities to come here. Once a colony was started, the fra- ternity needed to have 25 members and participate in two philanthropic events. They placed second in Phi Sigma Kappa ' s Home Run Derby and participated in the March of Dimes Walk-a- Thon. The March of Dimes is Delta Sig ' s national philan- thropy. Mike Disser, Delta Sig ' s national Director of Expan- sion and Colony Develop- 154 s A Budding Brotherhood (Continued) ment was hopeful about meeting the membership re- quirement by the end of the spring semester. " It ' s a really great start to have this many involved. We hope to have 30 to 45 guys at the end of the semester, " he said. A new fraternity must also go before the IFC Rush Com- mittee to be evaluated before they can be officially recog- nized by IFC. " They come and sit in your meeting and talk to you to see how things are going. They want to prevent some of the things that have happened before from happening again. Basically they just want to make sure you ' re firmly es- tablished so you don ' t just come on campus and dwindle out, " Keith Collyer, Delta Sig president said. " They ' ve been real supportive. " Tau Kappa Epsilon was also looking for new mem- bers in the spring. However, they did not have to meet IFC requirements becuase they never went off campus. Instead, the national repre- sentatives came in and en- tirely rebuilt the chapter from within, with completely new members. According to Teke ' s International Director Dennis Perry they had a strong response recruiting 25 members in the first two weeks. Tau Kappa Epsilon has no pledgeship. Instead initiation is the first step and members then begin an ed- ucation program about the fraternity that continues throughout their college years. Rushing new members was a constant task for Delta Sig- ma. They often had as many as two or three rush events a week at places such as Buf- falo Bill ' s and Dagwood ' s. They also put ads in the Flambeau, had tables in the Union and had Alumni func- tions to get support. They also tried to have each fra- ternity member bring in a new member to increase their numbers. Their fraternity met once a week on campus to take care of business matters. They also got togetl er at other times. For example, the members met every Monday night at the Pub, in a non- rush setting to socialize. " I saw the ad in the paper and decided to do it. The Delta Sigma Phi members Mike Eisenberg and Troy Buines find time to play Foozeball. Foozeball has been a popular game among fraternities for many years. idea a being a founding father was very appealing as well as the idea of having an input in establishing the traditions and rules instead of joining a fraternity where that is al- ready established, " David Blount, a Delta Sig member said. Starting a new fraternity may be a hard job, but the brothers walked away with a unique experience that they might have missed otherwise. " I ' ve had a great time, " Keith Collyer said. " I ' ve learned a lot about meetings and setting things up and meeting new people. It ' s an incredible amount of work but it ' s very rewarding. " Pledges Greg Austin and Marty Dormay take a break following a meeting. Pledges of the fraternity were re- quired to be initiated under chartered chapters and have traveled great lengths all over the Southeast to see that this was done. t • ' COURTESY AI ■w% ,« !»•» ' Ki: Kappa Sigma made time weekly to tutor students from Bond Elementary School and also spent much time with the Chil- dren ' s Lighthouse.

" We felt that serving your local community is very important, " treasurer Derk Ungerer said. " You can make a difference and be there to witness it. It ' s a great feeling.

Obviously, you would want that impression to make an impact. In the Seminole Greek ritual of " painting the wall, " one chance was all each sorority got to leave an impression on a stranger passing by. Sororities participated in a tradition that consisted of decorating a section of wall that was usually located close to the sorority ' s property. Each sorority created their own ideas that usually illus- trated activities such as rush, Greek Week, their formal or philanthropic project. What- ever theme was desired, the sororities expressed who they were by the art work brushed Molly Dendy puts the finish- ing touches on AAH ' s yy oll. AAn not only paint- ed their wall, but also had shirts made to show their support for the troops in the Persian Gulf. on the designated area of wall. " I ' ve been painting our wall ever since I ' ve been pledged. I like having a say in what the wall will look like since it could be the first im- pression a stranger driving through town could get of my sorority, " sophomore Alex- andra Cordero of Sigma Kap- pa said. The sororities ' art work could be found near the en- trance of the university on Copeland Street, Jefferson Street and College Avenue. The sororities took this tra- dition very seriously, enough so to elect or appoint chairpersons that headed the committee that painted the wall. Freshman Christina Host of Kappa Delta was the wall chairperson since Janu- ary of 1990. " I don ' t have a natural ar- tistic ability. I ' m just a big time doodler, " Host said. Nevertheless, the artwork did catch the eyes of pedes- A First Impression trians, students, drivers and many others. Junior Allison Swann, president of Pi Beta Phi, remembered the decor of the walls when she was a freshman. " I thought they were cool. They were a form a grafitti that was allowed. A grafitti that let the people show who they were. It ' s kind of a form of art-folk grafitti, " Swann said. The grafitti also possessed more than a sorority ' s signa- ture. The paintings reflected the signs of the times. In a time of turmoil and war, so- rorities came together to show their support of the troops in the Persian Gulf. The artwork ranged from " God Bless The U.S.A. " to " Support Desert Storm. " Red, white, and blue flags, eagles and stars graced the streets and made a statement that came from the sorority ' s hearts. Angels blowing horns, Cal- vin and Hobbes goofing around and dolphins in a daze were all pictures that captured the attention of people who passed by the walls. The statement, or artwork that was seen con- veyed a message to others. The paintings on the walls might have even left a first impression in the mind of a wanderer. Cassy Bunn KA ' s Tracy Guas, Gretchen Steeg, Betsy Lande, and Anitra Mitchell paint " God Bless the USA " on their portion of the wall. Many sororities and fra- ternities showed support for the troops by painting their walls, hanging banners, flags and yel- low ribbons. m TEAMING sSe The main purpose of the Greek sys- tem was to unite students in organ- izations with common goals and values. These organiza- tions have raised money and helped many people while at the same time forming close friendships among members. The system has tended to function more effectively when the fraternities and so- rorities came together to in- teract, to get to know one an- other and to support one another. Greeks took their philanthropies and commu- nity service very seriously but at the same time recog- nized the need of and ben- efits from social interaction. This more relaxed atmos- phere gave the Greeks the freedom to get to know one another and themselves bet- ter, and, in the end, helped to create a more efficient work- ing system. Socials often had some sort of theme to help make the joining of the two groups more fun. The crazier, the better. The socials gave the Greeks a way to be in a re- laxed setting while everyone got acq uianted. Some social themes com- monly used were Wet n ' Wild, Beach Bash, Luau and the 50 ' s. Some groups chose to have social themes known only to their organization to create an impression that would be associated uniquely with them. Some of the more unique and well known events were Pi Kappa Phi ' s Moon Dance, Alpha Tau Omega ' s Viking, FIJI ' S Is- lander, Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Kappa Alpha Theta ' s Kappa Kid- nap, and Delta Zeta, Delta Gamma and Delta Delta Del- ta ' s Delta Date Rush. Some social gathering that most Greeks found enjoy- ment in were hayrides, for- mals, rushes, grab-a-date, destination unknown events and road trip outings. Hay- rides often were at a ranch, where a hayride could be tak- en or one could simply sit by the side. Formals, individually named by the different Greek organizations, were held at hotels, on boats and in el- egant restaurants. Here Greeks stepped out in their best and enjoyed their gala event. Crushes gave sorori- ties and fraternities a chance to secretly invite people thay had a crush on. Names of in- vited guests were printed in the Flambeau and all gath- ered in local clubs in hopes of finding who invited them. Some social were held where destinations were unknown, only the president and social chairman of the group knew where the event would take place. The excitement that Sorority sister Michelle Clarl prepares for thie overling ' s Social. Socials were a very important part of the Greel sys- tenn, built from the lack of nowl- edge of where the social would take place caused at- tendees to have a great time. Some organizations decided to take thier groups on the road. Most partied with fra- ternities and sororities at oth- er schools and others simply went to parks or participated in recreational activities. The Greeks on campus were well known and was proud of their accomplish- ments. Well over 50 Greek organizations have been rep- resented on campus and proved to be very worth- while. They individually found time to serve others and better themselves. So- cials helped Greeks become better acquianted, resulting in better efficiency, and in the end gave them time to relax and enjoy their group and Greek community.

As one of its annual ser- vice projects, the chapter presents the Lydia Hooks Scholarship to a deserving students. Other campus and community service projects sponsored includ- ed tours of the Florida Black Archives, Limelight on Beauty, Health Fairs, and Bond Community Tutoring.

A$A AKA The Zeta Omicron chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was founded on campus in 1971. The charter mem- bers built a legacy of ac- ademically successful black women who pro- vided service to the uni- versity community and nation. Among the chapter ' s regional and local honors were its se- lection as Outstanding Undergraduate Chapter in the South Atlantic Region. In addition, Zeta Omicron has re- ceived the Regional Scholarship Award for having the highest chap- ter GPA. Alpha Phi Alpha frater- nity, the first and largest black greek-letter organi- zation, was founded in 1906. Smce its beginning, Alpha has dedicated itself to the goals of scholarship, leadership and uplifting mankind through service. The Iota Delta chapter was founded on campus in 1974. Since the beginning there were over 25 pledge classes into teh chapter. The Iota Delta chapter took great pride in the growth of its rich fraternal tradition. Iota Delta gave the university its first two black student body presi- dents, and the only two black homecoming chiefs. Community service was highly ranked on Alpha ' s list of priorities. The mem- bers of teh Iota Delta chapter made frequent vis- its to nursing homes, sup- ported the Special Alympics and the Chris- tian Children ' s fund. SK The 1990-91 year marked Phi Sigma Kap- pa ' s first full year on cam- pus. Phi Sigma Kappa was colonized in the fall of 1989 and chartered in the spring of 1990. They moved into their new house in November of 1989. Phi Sig ' s philanthropy was ARC, Retarded Citi- zens of Tallahassee. In or- der to rasie money for ARC, they held Starfest, which was a homerun competition among ap- proximately 20 teams. Among Phi Sig ' s socials were ones with Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Kappa.

AT Delta Gamma held its annual Anchor Splash to benefit Aid to the Blind. Anchor Splash was held at the union pool where the fraternities competed in water games. The event was also held nationally and proved to be very suc- cessful. Delta Gamma found time to enjoy themselves and have fun with other fraternities at the same time. They had a Grease social with Delta Tau Del- ta, a Mardi Gras social with Alpha Tau Omega and an October Fest social with Lambda Chi Alpha, Kappa Delta, Delta Gam- ma and Kappa Alpha. They also had a hayride, their pledge formal an An- chor Ball formal, and Del- ta Date Rush with Tri Del- ta and Delta Zeta. " The sisters have much enthusiasm for each and were involved on campus. The strong bond we share as sisters is reflected in all our activities and makes us unique, " Stephanie Croxton said. SK Sigma Kappa supported Alzheimer ' s disease by holding their second annu- al Double Dare, raising ap- proximately $1,000. They also helped Westminster Oaks retirement center planning such projects as a casino night and decorat- ing for Halloween. During the year they re- ceived several recogni- tions. Among them were most improved GPA in the fall and best sports- manship for intramurals. Among their socials was a two day social with Phi Kappa Tau. The social, called Diamonds and Di- amonds involved a softball game and a semi-formal Casino night. They also had socials with Sigma Nu and Theta Chi.

ZULMA CRESPO GROUP Efforts HELP OUT Greeks shared a common goal of helping the less fortunate. Whether it was by giving time or raising money, the greek system found ways to support different worthy causes. To support individ- ual philanthropies each so- rority and fraternity spon- sored an event that involved the greek commu- nity, and in some cases the campus as well, while trying to keep the activity fun and entertaining for everyone. The philanthropic events centered on an atmosphere of excitement to promote increased support and en- thusiasm from those who participated in the activi- ties. However, to make sure the enthusiasm and support did not get out of hand, the greek system installed an Activities Review Board. The board ' s main job was to set limits on what could and could not be done during the event. It proved to be a good way to control the competition Competition was often a part of greek life. Between intramurals and striving to be number one on campus, greeks took competition very seriously. Philanthro- pies proved to be a good way to bring the sororities and fraternities together to compete in a friendly at- mosphere. ' ' Dolphin Daze was a lot of fun, the fraternities that competed showed a lot of excitement and energy. It made supporting Children ' s Cancer Research a reward- ing experience and at the same time we had a lot of fun, " Delta Delta Delta Pam Lloyd said. To keep up interest in greek philanthropies, soror- ities and fraternities tried to make their benefits espe- cially unique. For example. Kappa Delta tried a new project called Wing Ding. Switching from their tradi- tional spaghetti dinner, they saw their new event as a good way to focus on a col- lege favorite, eating chicken wings. " Everyone loves wings, this way everyone can enjoy wings from different restau- rants, listen to good music and help support the Na- tional Committee for the Prevention of Child Abuse, " philanthropy coor- dinator Diane Pronix said. Gamma Phi Beta started its annual Laugh Off last year and it proved to be very succesful. " Our philan- thropy is unique in that we give everyone a chance to show us how funny they are. Anyone can enter, whether you are greek or not. We not only support the American Cancer Society, but also help involve the campus while having a great time, " Kim Ruddell said. Another unique philan- thropic event was Beta The- Kevin Ache, a member of ATA, volleys to opponent Sean Backer. ATA among many fraternities and sororities participated in XO ' s Sand Slam.

Also, Sigma Kappa ' s Dou- ble Dare, where sororities and fraternities teamed up and competed in a way sim- ilar to the T.V. show brought in proceeds to ben- efit Alzheimer ' s disease. Although Greeks did much to support their phi- lanthropies, they often found time to serve the community and local causes as well. Many sororities and fraternities held blood drives, rebuilt run down houses and collected food and clothes for the needy. Delta Chi found it reward- ing to be part of the Big Brother Big Sister program. " We feel spending time with kids who need guid- ance or someone to rely on is a great opportunity for us. It gives you the best feeling knowing you ' ve made a dif- ference. Instead of raising money and sending it away, we feel that we are making more of an impact by work- ing with our philanthropy, being with the kids on a per- sonal basis, " Rich Bynum said. Whether working on a personal basis or for a na- tional cause, philanthropies proved to be a great way for Greeks to interact with one another. Competition gave them a desire to succeed and also united the system in the desire to help others and their communities.

" Price was inspired to found GAMMA in the summer of 1989 by her brother, founder of the program at Ohio State. Those involved with GAMMA saw that steps were being made each semester and that Greek policies con- cerning alcohol were looking better. " We ' re here to protect the Greek system, " member John Mills said, " Through GAMMA, Greeks are work- ing together as brothers and sisters. Instead of acting as the police, we ' re acting through educating the Greeks and taking care of problems that arise from the inside. " The GAMMA program was set up on a Board of Di- rectors system.

Florida State ' s chapter of GAMMA is the largest in the country with 250 members and the only chapter to uti- lize the Board of Directors system. Members of the board see GAMMA as a ne- cessity instead of a luxury. " We figured our best bet on serving as an effective or- ganization would be to carry out tasks in a light-hearted way, " Price said. .1 RANDY ROSADO % Steps For Safety (Continued) GAMMA held many events throughout the year that supported philanthro- pies and gave students an op- portunity to see that alcohol related activities didn ' t have to be the only way to have a good time. In the fall, before the Florida-Florida State football game, GAMMA held a car smash, where partici- pants paid a dollar to hit a car decorated with the UF colors. They held a Victims Im- pact session, where a student spoke on a Drinking-Driving- Killing experience he had. The session was held to make students aware and yet relate to him and his experience at the same time. Pre-spring break, GAMMA had stu- dents sign pledges promising not to drink and drive. They received a great response by having the second highest percentage of pledges signed in five state region. GAMMA ' S main event was the Ideal Party they held March 28. The party gave faculty, administration and Students a chance to join to- gether in a non-alcoholic event and to honor those who have shown dedication to the Greek system, especially GAMMA. " There are a lot of prob- lems facing Greeks today. They are typically stereo- typed as an Animal House figure. They don ' t deserve this. GAMMA is a great out- let for positive energy and hopefully, with time, will di- minish this image that is un- fairly associated with Greeks, " Mills said.

Even though Sigma was the youngest black greek or- ganization at the univer- sity, it lived up to its motto of " Culture for Service and Service for Humani- ty. " The chapter partici- pated yearly with the Spe- cial Olympics and helped the underprivileged chil- dren of Gadsen County. The competitiveness of Sigma took the brothers to New Orleans to represent the university in the na- tional intramural football championship and they also won several step- shows. As a result of the Sigma drive for scholastic excellence, the chapter provided tutorial assis- tance for students. $A0 Phi Delta Theta official- ly came back on campus spring semester.

TRICIA TIMMONS k. t BUSING Back to School The community of Tallahassee pulled together to help kids stay in school when Alpha Kappa Alpha and the university combined their efforts to start the Homework Headquarters on Wheels and Afternoon En- richment Program. Members from Alpha Kappa Alpha were heavily involved with the execution of the program and were very pleased with the project setup. Florida A M University groups, var- ious fraternity and sorority members, parents, church members and others in the community gathered to help ensure the program ' s success. The program was a coop- erative effort between Alpha Kappa Alpha and the Univeristy. The bus was giv- en by the Leon County School System and was ren- ovated by the Pride of Flor- ida (Prison Rehabilitative In- dustries and Diversifies Enterprises). The Men of Tomacca helped convert the bus and IBM donated the computers. The purpose of the pro- gram was to help youth who were " at risk " of becoming school dropouts. The After School Enrichment program focused on remotivating the children in school and giving them self-confidence. The Homework Headquarters on Wheels program taught the students and provided help with their homework " We ' ve focused on ' at risk ' students because that ' s where the need is. We need to pre- pare the kids to meet the de- mands of society. Our ulti- mate goal is to have the students enjoy school and want to stay in, " program di- rector Dr. Freddie Groomes said. Byron Price, project coor- dinator, reported that the en- thusiasm from the volunteer tutors was there. " The vol- unteers we have are great, the only problem is we need more, " he said. The program to help " at risk " students was piloted in Tallahassee and was funded for three years by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The ul- timate goal of the program was to expand nationwide and keep the kids in school. " After all, " Price said, " a kid needs to feel good about him- self. " " This program is not only an investment in the kids, but more importantly an invest- ment in our future, " Groomes said.

Panhellenic was made up of representa- tives from each sorority on campus. Panhellenic worked with the PACE school for troubled children through the Partner in Excellence program with Leon Coun- ty schools. They threw birthday parties each month and also gave them a Valentine ' s Day dance. Panhellenic sponsored their annual faculty lunch- eon where they recognized a faculty member of the year. They also sponsored Eating Awawreness Day and co-sponsored GCLC, a Greek leadership confer- ence. Panhellenic sup- ported and participated in Stop Rape week, Alcohol Awareness week.

With an overall theme of " Cartoons, " the activities raised close to $20,000 with proceeds being divided among four local phi- lanthropies. Together, Inter- fraternity Council, Pan Greek and Panhellenic planned and executed a week of Greek unity and service with outstanding results. The week began with the " Cartoon Crazy " carnival in the Union courtyard, bene- fitting Big Brothers Big Sis- ters of Tallahassee. Neigh- borhood children, administrator ' s families and the student body came out for food vendors, carnival games, a Moonwalk and K A© and KA members do their rendition of the Simp- sons. KKr sisters enjoy some cotton candy at Carnival Day. The cotton candy booth was one of serveral food vendors in the union courtyard for the day. much more. Each Greek pair- ing was responsible for de- signing a game booth in the theme of their chosen car- toon; pairings were judged on the quality, appearance and theme appropriateness of their booth as well as their ticket sales. The carnival raised $1,000 for Big Broth- ers Big Sisters. Delta Gam- ma, Phi Kappa Tau and FIJI all won first place; Tri Delta and Alpha Tau Omega won second, and Alpha Delta Pi, Delta Chi and Phi Sigma Kappa took third. The Talent Night chairmen continued the successful tra- dition of the annual Talent Night competition, with some creative and exemplary new additions. For the first time, the talent competition was held on campus in Ruby Diamond Auditorium. Dr. Tommy Wright hosted the evening ' s festivities. The Golden Girls performed and the Pan Greek fraternity, Al- pha Phi Alpha, performed their award winning step- show. But the real stars were the singing, dancing and in- strumental performances of the Greeks. Judged by professors in the Animation Fine Arts School and local professionals, the performers hard work paid off, raising $900 for the March of Dimes. The acts, which did not per- tain to the cartoon theme, were judged on talent, orig- inality, creativity and theat- rical appeal costumes. Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Alpha placed first; Zeta Beta Tau, Sigma Kappa, and Delta Tau Delta placed second; and Alpha Tau Ome- ga and Tri Delta placed third. Skit day required a $100 corporate sponsorship from each pairing, raising $1500 for the YMCA Someplace Else Refuge House. Each pairing ' s skit incorporated their cartoon and Someplace Else. The three to five minute skits were judged on cos- tumes props incorporation of their cartoon theme and the philanthropy originali- ty creativity, and theatrical appeal crowd appeal.

These included honorary fraterni- ties, service fraternities and the professional fraternities. Although these professional fraternities had a different fo- cus, they held some of the same goals and ideals as the other Greeks such as service, unity and friendship. An ac- tive example of one such fra- ternity was Alpha Kappa Psi. Alpha Kappa Psi was a professional and business oriented co-ed fraternity. They were founded on cam- pus in 1 924 and had approx- imately 1 1 members. They had an active calender full of a wide variety of events. A K Psi ' s main purpose was to help its members in their business fields. " We try to enhance our business skills, " Paula Highes said. They held resume work- shops, mock interviews and several functions with speak- ers from alumni and profes- sionals from the community. A K Psi was also working on estabhshing a job networking system with A K Psi alumni from the university and all of Florida. As well as enhancing their own skills, A K Psi worked to enchance the community. They participated in the March of Dimes Walk Amer- ica, raising almost $6,000. They raised the most money out of all campus organiza- tions and came in fourth overall for Tallahasee. A K Psi also collected Publix re- ceipts to benefit local middle schools and collected canned goods for the needy for hol- idays. At the end of each school year, the brothers and pledges both donated any left over money in their budgets to charity. Their rush lasted for ap- proximately two weeks. They held two rush parties and en- courage new members to come out and meet the broth- ers. Prospective members needed a 3,0 grade point av- erage and must have been in the business school. Once they pledged, new members were required to perform var- ious business activities while the brothers reviewed their performances. These activi- ties involved interview tech- niques, communication skills and learning time manage- ment. " They give the pledges an understanding of what the fraternity is about and what we ' re doing to prepare them for the business community, " Paula Hughes said. A K Psi had social activ- ities as well. They held a brothers theme party each se- mester to encourage unity with the pledges. They had a banquet for new members at the end of each semester and they held a hayride. They also participated in the homecoming parade and won an award for Best Entertain- ment. Although A K Psi had a business focus, it still had things in common with other Greek organizations. Having a house was one of those things. Their new house was built in 1985 and had eight bedrooms for some of the brothers. The members of A K Psi also found close friend- ship in their fraternity. " I think we ' re all very close friends, " Paula Highes said, " We definitely have a strong unity. " Another active business fraternity on campus was Delta Sigma Pi. In the fra- ternity, members were geared toward preparing and ulti- mately facing the business world. To pledge Delta Sigma Pi, one had to be a business ma- jor and have the needed GPA. T he pledge program lasted ten weeks and future members got the feel for what lay ahead. Guest speakers came in and gave seminars on professional dress and at- titude. The fraternity also participated in professional tours and did resumes. Fundraisers the fraternity did were Valentine ' s Day, when students could send treats to their friends or sweethearts and car washes. These activities helped sup- port the chapter. Delta Sigma Pi also particpated in the March of Dimes, and inter- acted with the Chamber of Commerce, with which they held a reception each semes- ter. The fraternity was growing and hoped to start an alumni chapter in Tallahassee. " We are the largest business fra- ternity in the US, " Scott Corneaux said, " With an alumni chapter here in town it will make it easier for us to improve and expand our- selves. " Tricia Timmons Donna Sch aier, Byron Holmes, Rondolff P. Wolff, Michelle Zorembo and other members of AKijj enjoy their corporate tour in Atlanta. The fra- ternity took many tours which fo- cused on preparing the members for the business world. COURTESY A Kij; PAN GREEK Pan Greek Council ' s main purpose was to func- tion as the governing party of the eight sororities and fraternities included in the Pan Greek System. They served as a liason between the university and the greeks, and were often in- volved with making judi- ciary type decisions. Pan Greeks worked to- gether to do many service projects throughout the community. They also bonded together with Flor- ida A M University Pan Greeks to support their ef- forts. Pan Greeks were proud of their accomplishments which involved the indi- vidual sororities and fra- ternities receiving numer- ous awards on regional and national levels. They, as a group, were most pleased with their im- proved relationship with Panhellenic and IFC, and also the progress made within their own system. They found that a better working relationship led to a better functioning greek system. " We no longer are a so- cial outlet, we now are geared more towards aca- demics and community service, " Michael Leeks, Pan Greek president said. AXA Lambda Chi Alpha held the All Sorority Line Dance at the Moon to ben- efit the American Heart Association. Most sorori- ties competed in the dance competition and with the money brought in from ticket and shirt sales, Lambda Chi made ap- proximately $4,500, which was donated from the event. Lambda Chi attended and held various socials. They had a Reggae social with Alpha Delta Pi, a Cowboys and Indians so- cial with Tri Delta, a hay- ride and their Godfather formal. They also man- aged to place in the home- coming events with their pairing Pi Beta Phi. " The guys are so di- verse, you can find good ' ol country boys and surfers in the same room. We all take care of each other, resulting in auto- matic friendships that last a lifetime, " Todd Spillane said. Kappa Alpha Psi was founded in 1 9 1 1 on the ba- sis of unification. The Theta Eta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was chartered in 1975 on cam- pus. Four young men with the similar needs to their founders were in search of a source of unification. These men found their source in ideals and broth- erhood expressed by Kap- pa. Many years and many pledge classes have crossed the sands in the name of Theta Eta. They were a proud chapter which strived to uphold the ideals of Kappa Alpha Psi both nationally and local- ly. The fundamental pru- pose of Kappa Alpha Psi was achievement. As a chapter they strived to make achievements bene- ficial to the university and community. 1 fi $ More than 75 years ago, three men founded a ve- hicle by which true friend- ship could be perpetuated. They called this new vehicle Omega Psi Phi fraternity. From that moment, friendship became the fundamental principle by which the fraternity operated and succeeded. In 1967, nine black uni- versity students began what is now the Chi Theta chapter of Omega Psi Phi fraternity. This chapter strived to perpetuate the ideas of its founding fa- thers. Through their par- ticipation in Acheivement Week, Social Action, Scholarship and other community projects, members of Chi Theta continued to spread Ome- ga ' s influence. Omega men took a strong and active interest in the Black Stu- dent Union with five of its members being past pres- idents. Phi Si and the Pi Kapp ' s, a hayride and the Carnation Ball formal at the Silver Slipper. The Alpha Chi ' s prided themselves on the letter writing chain they held with local and overseas troops, their participation in the adopt-a-highway program in which they were the first sorority on campus to participate and being first runners up in Landa Chi ' s Line- dance. " The girls at Alpha Chi are down to earth, open and friendly. No stereo- type applies here, it ' s just nice to be able to be your- self, " Christa Hardy said. SAT AX12 Alpha Chi Omega held its annual Par-Tee at Hilman golf course to ben- efit the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation, which was their national who distrib- uted a large portion of their proceeds to Easter Seals. Besides their philan- thropy. Alpha Chi found time to enjoy themselves by participating in socials. They held a Fantasy Island II social with Kappa Al- pha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Gamma Phi Beta. They also had a Gangster social with Sig Ep, and a Dating Game socials with Sigma Delta Tau held its Fraternity Feud in No- vember to benefit the Na- tional Committee for the Prevention of Child Abuse. The Fraternity Feud consisted of frater- nities competiting in a family feud style game and proved to be very success- ful. During the year Sigma Delta Tau found time to socialize. They had a Mardi Gras social with Phi Delta Theta, a WW III so- cial with Phi Kappa Tau, and a Hot Tub social with Zeta Beta Tau. They also managed to work in a hay- ride and their Tea Rose Formal into their busy schedules. " With the new house, it gives us a new beginning. It makes it easier to get involved and see the prog- ress of the sorority. With this new beginning, it is easier for an idividual to make a difference realize it. It really make being Greek worth it, " Lisa Barker said. ADOPT A HIGHW LITTER CONTRO ALPHA PHI ONEGA COURTESY A0O itflMMaB ' T77 GIVING BACK SJ Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed service fraternity, started at the university in the fall of 1989. Since the beginning, the fraternity has proven to be very successful, drawing a large pledge class each semes- ter. Alpha Phi Omega recruited its members by advertising through the community. The RUSH included service proj- ects and pledges demonstrat- ing interest in the organiza- tion. The pledge program usually lasted ten weeks. The fraternity had four purposes, to serve the com- munity, campus, chapter and Erin O ' Brien, Kevin Gay, Da- vid Romero and Darieen Superio take pride in them- selves as they show off the ev- idence of their participation in the Adopt-a-Highv» ay program. Many sororities and fraternities partici- pated in the program as a service to the community. country. The organization was heavily affiliated with the Boy Scouts and sought college students who wanted to give back to the commu- nity. Thy group focused and emphasized their cordinal purposes of leadership, friendship, and service. " Of the cardinal principles I have found friendship to rise above the others because I feel that the other principles will turn out to be ineffective if friendships formed through the brotherhood are not strong, " Kevin Duce said. The service fraternity had two main philanthropies. In the fall, they held White Christmas, when members of the group went around and collected canned foods from people and businesses. The food drive benefited the St. Thomas Moore soup kitchen. In the Spring they held the Ugly ' Nole on campus, a con- test where organizations drew the ugliest ' Nole face they could and voted with money to help make their face win. The Ugly ' Nole con- test benefited the Tallahassee Coalition for the Homeless. Throughout the year, the fra- ternity did many service projects such as helping fix up old houses and being a part of the Adopt-a-Highway program. They also ran a dis- cout book outlet in the stu- dent union as well as planting trees in front of the new li- brary, helping Easter Seals and the Ronald McDonald House and washing the gar- net and gold route buses.

The charter mem- bers, Regina Brown, San- dra Gleen, and Regina Richardson were encour- aged to found a chapter by members of the Gamma Alpha chapter of Florida A M University. Dedicat- ed to the precepts of schol- arship, service, and sister- hood, the Rho Kappa chapter took an active in- terest in programs and ac- tivities that promoted these ideas in the local community and on cam- pus. The chapter partici- pated in programs such as the Sorority ' s National Ju- venile Deliquency Project, Special Olympics, Youth conferences, and others. The sorority also donated money to organizations which included the March of Dimes, the American Cancer Society, and the Stork ' s Nest. Zeta Phi Beta also worked closely with its brother fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma, to implement many of its public service programs. exhibited high scholastic achievement. Members also partici- pated in extra-curricular clubs and activities such as Black Student Union, Stu- dent Government, Gospel Choir, and many others. Deltas were also actively involved in community service, which was the so- rority ' s main thrust. Through DST ' s Five-Point Program, and others, the chapter conducted tutorial programs, disseminated campaign literature and raised funds for charities, scholarships and commu- nity projects. KAe A20 In the spring of 1973, 19 industrious women chartered the Kappa Ep- silon Chapter of Delta Sig- ma Theta Sorority. Since then, the women of the Kappa Epsilon chapter continued to strive for ex- cellence in all of their ac- ademic, extra-curricular and community service endeavors. In keeping with thier motto - " Intelligence is the Torch of Wisdom " — the chapter members Kappa Alpha Theta ben- efitted the Court Appoint- ed Special Advocates when they held their Battle of the Greek Gods. Fra- ternities competed in field day events, a pageant, and scholarship also factored into who would win. Theta had many socials to help liven up each se- mester. Some memorable ones were a Bikers and Babes Social with Lambda Chi Alpha, a Jungle Social with Sigma Chi and a Dis- co Social with Delta Tau Delta. They also made time to hold a hayride and their New Year ' s formal. " The attitude of the girls and the way they present themselves is what drew me to Theta, their sincer- ity and friendly attitude made choosing the right sorority for me easy, " Les- lie Prybys said.

But the war in the Persian Gulf was a different cause for the Greek system to unite behind. Nearly all of the Greek walls which normally sport logos for upcoming events displayed patriotic messages in red, white and blue. Sigma Alpha Epsilon painted their lion and Kappa Sigma paint- ed their missle. " It looked like a SCUD that didn ' t go off, " John Coo- per, a Kappa Sig brother said. Smart bombs were a part of the strategic bombing raids in operation Desert Storm. Chung Wong stands next to a gift for Iraq. Soldiers often wrote mes- sages on bombs signifying their hometowns, fraternities and friends. Many sororities and frater- nities hung supportive ban- ners and American flags, tied yellow ribbons around their trees and posts and hung oth- er patriotic decorations. Al- pha Tau Omega helped everyone welcome our troops home by putting yellow rib- bons all over campus. Sororities and fraternities showed their support through the mail also. Many sororities such as Kappa Alpha Theta, Pi Beta Phi and Gamma Phi Beta wrote letters to the sol- diers. Many sororities and fraternities also sent care packages and Alpha Gamma Delta sisters got pen pals. Pi Kappa Phi and Chi Phi both took their efforts fur- ther. Pi Kaps sang the Na- tional Anthem before their intramural basketball games to show their support. They also attended rallies at the Vi- etnam Veteran ' s Memorial in support of the war. Chi Phi co-sponsored a blood drive with Hooters to benefit the troops in the Medeast. " The blood drive was very successful and we hope this will help our troops in Op- eration Desert Storm, " Christopher Miller, Chi Phi ' s philanthropy chairman, said. No doubt that the Gulf war affected each fraternity and sorority in some way with loved ones over there. How- ever, perhaps most directly affected were Chi Phi and Theta Chi. Collectively the two fraternities had three ac- tive members called up to serve. Chi Phi brother Doug Viney served in the Army for two years and was involved in the Panama invasion be- fore he came to the univer- sity. He was called back up to serve in the Gulf war but only made it as far as Hawaii be- fore the war ended. He planned to return for the 91 Fall semester. Theta Chi had two broth- ers called up to serve. Both Chung Wong and Garrett Braitlye were called up from the reserves. The Theta Chi brothers wrote and sent them care packages. Chung ' s brothers fraternity pin ar- rived while he was overseas and they sent it to him. The fraternity also posted infor- mation about how they were doing in the house and made efforts to stay in touch with their families. Chung Wong decorates this smart bomb with his frater- nity ' s name and distin- guished his chapter, Wong took pride in serving his country and kept in close contact with his fra- ternity.

ZULMA CRESPO 7 I ZULMA CRESPO GROUPS 81 Eiliana Montew, Thirzah Wilkinson and Yarieia Thompson contrib- ute input at a United Latin So- ciety meeting. The Latin Soci- ety wasfounded in 1985 and is one of the largest organizations on campus. GROUPS 182 uning in to Tradition he university was home to many long- standing traditions and perhaps one of the best- loved was the Marching Chiefs. The band celebrated its 40th year under the name of " Marching Chiefs " as well as being the largest college marching band in the coun- try. The Chiefs, all 450 of them, started practice each August and performed for football fans all through the season. In addition to foot- ball games, they also provid- ed services for Booster As- sociation events, team send offs, away games and other sporting events and univer- sity activities. The band was under the di- rection of Mr. Robert Sheldon, who was quick to point out that all of the Chiefs joined the organiza- tion on a strictly volunteer basis. " We don ' t provide any marching band scholarships. Band members like this one made up tiie 450 strong Marctning Chiefs. The Chiefs performed at home and away footboil games as well as com- peting at several competitions. The Majorettes were an or- ganization that enhanced the performances of the Marching Chiefs. Here, one such Majorette performs with the Chiefs at a home game. SO the upward of fifteen hours a week band members put in is all volunteer time, " Sheldon said. In addition to Sheldon, the Chiefs were instructed by res- ident arranger Charlie Car- ter, graduate assistant Bill Bell and graduate students in the music school who volun- teered their services for var- ious tasks. Students became Marching Chiefs by completing an ap- plication from the band of- fice. In July, students were sent invitations to preseason training to learn the music and marching style. On the average, about 500 students showed up for training; 450 of them would become Chiefs. " Those qualified will be- come what we call ' the block. ' The others are asked to be alternated or ' glue crew, ' " said Sheldon. Glue Crew members helped with props, equipment and logistical problems. The group was composed of approximately 28 percent music majors. The rest, Sheldon said, came from every possible major. " Scholastically, " said Sheldon, " they average higher gradewise than most student groups. " There was also a high return rate of band members, including some graduate students who were seven year Chiefs. Sheldon wanted people to realize how much hard work the band put in. " I think it ' s important that the public re- alize that the Chiefs work very hard. They want to en- tertain the crowd, so the crowd response is really im- portant to them. That is real- ly their only payment. " " Probably the greatest re- sponse from the crowd is when a visiting band comes and (the crowds) realize what they ' ve got, " Sheldon said. Kim Roland Lambda Pi Eta Lambda Pi Eta was a recently formed organization on campus. Communication students petitioned the na- tional chapter of Lambda Pi Eta and formed a local chapter that boasted a membership of 82 members. The main purpose of Lambda Pi was to promote the interests of seniors in communication, as well as the Com- munication Department in general. The organization was unique in that instead of focusing on the interests of students in a very specific communication tract, it accepted seniors from related fields. They held a panel discussion featuring professionals from various communication fields, held a career fair with student government, participated in events with alumni and worked to help graduating seniors with writing their resumes and job networking. In the future, they wanted to focus on the needs of graduating seniors even further and held resume writing workshops and various other activities relevant to this group of outstanding students. In order to join, it was required that the student had a grade point average of 3.2 on all communication work, took nine hours of communication classes and a had a 3.0 GPA overall. Also, a desire to work and promote the interests of the organization was required. President, Courtney Carmack; Vice President Krista Ba- ker; Secretary, Carolyn Scott; Treasurer, Ron Wilson.

Trinh, a fourth degree blackbelt, taught the art at the university since 1976. In a community atmosphere, the members of the class learned and developed self-discipline, self-defense, self-confidence and physical fitness. Trinh, five other blackbelt instructors and over 50 students of all ages worked together to make the organization fulfilling, challenging and enjoyable. The Cuong-Nhu Karate Clu b met three times a week in the Union Ballroom. It was a free class, open to all FSU, FAMU, and TCC students, as well as the public. The class met all year round with breaks for holidays. Adult Education Club The Adult Education Club at the University provided graduate students and faculty an opportunity to present and discuss current issues and trends focused in the re- search and practice of adult education. Club members were involved in the development of ten presentations on selected topics of special interest, par- ticipation in a national conference presentation represent- ing FSU and collecting and analyzing alumni data on perceptions of their graduate programs and the job market in adult education. Guest speakers from the University of California at Berkley, Florida A M University and the University of South Florida mae presentations on literacy, multicultural diversity and self-directed learning. The Adult Education Club was a unique student or- ganization that offered individual members opportunities to pursue academic and social interests The Real Estate Society The purpose of the FSU Real Estate 1 »ciety was to pro- vide opportunities for members to en, mce their knowl- edge of the real estate industry through professional ac- tivities and contact with practitioners. Meetings were held every two to three weeks during the semester and provided speakers in areas such as : appraisal, development, sales, law, investments and other important areas. These meetings are usually followed with a social activity at a local restaurant or night club. An organized trip to a real estate business to Mardi Gras and Orlando were highlights of the year.

Unfortu- ately, for some, that free- om could lead to prob- ;ms with drugs or alcohol, he university offered elp for chronic partiers in le form of the Campus Icohol and Drug Infor- lation Center. CADIC was in its six- ;enth year on campus, Qd a similar facility could e found on each of Flor- ia ' s nine state university ampuses. The program ' as funded through the epartment of Health and .ehabilitative Services nd also received funds rom Student Govern- lent. CADIC was a resource nd referal center. Stu- ents could use the center ) obtain research materi- Is on almost any kind of rug or alcohol. They had information on specific drugs and their effects, drinking and driving, advice for party hosts, or hot lines to help someone who may have had a drinking or drug problem. They also provided confiden- tial referals to self-help groups on or off campus. CADIC did not do any coun- seling of students with prob- lems. The director of the center, Carolyn Cornelison, said the portion of the campus pop- ulation with drinking or drug problems was similar to that of the rest of the population. " I think statistically, throughout the country, we say 84 to 90 percent of our students drink or have tried alcohol. " Cornelison said that the center " gained a tremendous response from our students in the last several years. " All of the center ' s services were free of charge, and the staff was more than happy to as- sist with any problem or questions students might have had. According to Cornelison, the Center was especially busy in the fall se- mester. " This semester we ' ve done a tremendous amount (of referals). You don ' t want to say, ' yeah, we ' ve got a lot of people calling ' but the fact that people know we ' re here and we ' re available to serve the students, to me that ' s what is important, " Corne- lison said. Some of the groups CADIC referred students to were available on campus. BAC- CHUS (Boost Alcohol Con- sciousness Concerning the Health of University Stu- dents) was directly affiliated with the center. It was a na- tional organization with 350 chapters nationwide. Its pur- pose was to promote respon- sible decision making con- cerning the use or non use of alcohol. GAMMA (Greeks Advo- cating the Mature Manage- ment of Alcohol) was also af- filiated with CADIC. GAMMA stressed alcohol awareness among greeks. Each fraternity or sorority appointed a representative to the council. They met to dis- cuss problems, share ideas. Another service provided by SGA was the Designated Driver Program. This pro- gram provided a free, safe ride home to students who had too much to drink. Rides were available Wednesday through Saturday from 1 1 :00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. " It ' s a free ride, they don ' t ask about underage posses- sion or anything like that. They just want to make sure you get home, " Cornelison said. CADIC was also available to do presentations for stu- dent groups or to train a group member to do their own presentation. All referals by CADIC were, of course, confidental. Kim Rowland GAMMA members Jennifer Baker, Heidi Price, Steph- anie Croxton and John Mills are among many students who participate in encouraging mature management of drugs and alcohol on campus. 8d elling Chalk for Charity idewalks aren ' t just for walking anymore.

Federalists Societ The Federalist Society was a group of conservative and libertarian law students who were interested in the cur- rent state of the legal order. It was founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Con- stitution and that it was the duty of the judiciary to say what the law was, not what it should have been. The society promoted an awareness of these principles. The Federalist Society ' s events were highlighted by the fall debate series. The debate was between renowned University of Chicago law professor Richard Epstein and our own Steven Gey. The divergent views of the two professors on the takings clause of the U.S. Constitution was thoroughly entertaining to the audience, both live and watching on overflow mon- itors. The Society held at least one major event, either a debate or a symposium, and events such as hosting conservative and libertarian attorneys, judges and scholars for a lunch- time address or discussion. SOLTAS ifrK r Omicron Delta Kappa Two hundred students with above a 3.5 grade point av- erage attended an all-day workshop sponsored by Om- icron Delta Kappa. The workshop consisted of presen- tations by several leadership and scholastic honor societies as well as scholarship information and graduate school admissions information. Omicron Delta Kappa was the only national leadership organization with a student and faculty membership. The club accepted distinguished faculty and adminstrators as well as student graduates and undergrads.

She lobbied the legislature for the funding for the office while she was still a student and then decided to come back and apply for the job when the position was passed. " This is a project that, be- cause I was able to take the idea and envision what it would be like if it was suc- cesful, that took a place in my heart, " Arnold said. The office was the state- wide office which promoted volunteerism on 68 college campuses in Florida. They were not, however, affiliated with the Volunteer Center. Arnold ' s office was a state position, while the Volunteer Center was a Student Gov- ernment agency. The function of the state office was to help colleges in setting up volunteer pro- grams on their campuses. They provided grants to schools and conducted con- ferences to help organize their efforts. Arnold said reaction to her office was positive. " We just have incredible support, from students, statewide col- leg es and their presidents. " She said that part of the rea- son she took the position was that after lobbying for it, she felt respopnsible for its suc- cess. " I felt like a lot was on my shoulders to help this be a success. I wanted to maintain my credibility. " Even though starting a new organization could be a has- sle, both Arnold and Graff loved what they were doing and believed strongly in volunteerism. " It ' s such an up thing right now. Community service is becoming so popular and really a part of your educa- tion when you ' re in college, " Arnold said. Kim Rowland Cave Club The Cave Club was founded in 1969. Their expeditions included cave exploration, mapping and surveying, cave education, scientific research, and search and rescue train- ing.

SHARE took on a dual role by acting as a communicator between Health Center administration and the students, and aiding in the health education of students. SHARE members participated in Health Pest ' 90, Stop Rape Week, Alcohol Awareness Week and the Great Amer- ican Smokeout. The team also conducted a successful blood drive during the first week of December and planned another for faculty during Christmas. In spring, they counducted an organ donor drive, attended the South- eastern College Health Association convention, helped out with Special Olympics and published thier own biannual newsletter, The Antedote, as well as other various vol- unteer work on campus and in the community.

The Financial Management Association was an inter- national professional organization which was designed to aid in the professional and social development of future finance executives. The chapter of FMA was the newest and largest chapter in the world with over two hundred twenty members. In addition to sponsoring a diverse array of speakers, they offered many other activities and services to their members and to the college of business as a whole. Some of these included: classes on the use of Hewlett Packard Financial Calculators, Bank Socials, the AT T Collegiate Invest- ment Challenge, Trips to Financial Centers (New York, Chicago, etc.), a semesterly resume book and a newsletter. Projects for the fall of 1991 were to activate the Honors Chapter of FMA. The organization was the only national honors organization for finance majors. BACCHUS In Classical Greek mythology BACCHUS was known as " the god of wine. " BACCHUS was an acronymn for a student group that got together to promote the idea of good fun, good times, good friends, with out the excessive use of alcohol. The group held regular meetings, cookouts and other activities. BACCHUS (Boost Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the Health of University Students) educated the campus about alcohol issues as they participated in programs such as National College Alcohol Awareness Week and National Collegiate Drug Awareness Week. BAACHUS worked closely with the Designated Driver Program, the Dean of Students and Student Government to promote responsible decision making regarding the use or non-use of alcohol and drugs. 193 pasting Black History efore there was any histo- ry, there was Black History " read the shirt of Todd Myrick, a black student.

" Because of the fact that most standard American History textbooks only ac- knowledge black people and their significance in history through the 20 or so pages that they set aside for the issue of slavery, we find it necessary and prop- er to articulate the fact that black people and black culture have made monu- mental contributions, not only to American History, but to the entire perspective of World History " pro- claimed Benjamin Crump, president of the Black Stu- dent Union. Dr. Carter G. Woodson created Black His- tory Week (later expanded into Black History Month) to instill pride and admiration in people of African descent about their history and their heritage. Many organizations worked cohesively with the Black Student Union to pres- ent diverse programs throughout the month of February. Unity Jam ' 91 kicked off the celebration. This was a cooperative effort along with the Florida A M University Student Govern- ment Association. " When you think about it, the Unity Jam is good way to start off the month, " said Sonya Law, a FAMU student. " Because parties are well attended, " she continued, " it served as a good source of communica- tions for other events during Black History month.

UWIS met onece a month during the academic year. Meetings included activities such as seminars, panel dis- cussions, luncheons and pot luck dinners. On a grander scale, in conjunction with the Association of Women in Science (AWIS), UWIS made an effort to reach out to the university community by organizing a mentoring program which was designed to promote the motivation of women and minorities to pursue occupations and careers in sci- ence, math and engineering fields. For the community at large, UWIS helped to coordinate a progra m called " Expanding Your Horizons " in an effort to attract seventh and eighth grade girls to the sciences.

Membership was limited to 40 members and each spring new initiates were elected to begin their senior year of active service. The 1 99 1 membership began the year actively by raising funds with doughnut sales. Over two hundred dollars was raised to support the group ' s activities. During the fall semester at their monthly meetings they hosted faculty speakers that included Dr. Sandon speaking about the faculty senate and Dr. Madsen speaking about scholarship and choices. In the spring semester their Torchbearer Chapter of Mortar Board celebrated its 60th anniversary. Coinciding with national Mortar Board Week, their chapter organized and hosted a panel discussion on multi-cultural affairs on Feb. 13. The event, entitled, " Cultural Diversity at FSU: Multiculturalism or " Just Another Course Requirement " was a productive gathering of faculty and students in which the issues of multiculturalism at the university and the new class requirement were discussed. Their membership drive ended the semester and ori- entation and initiation occured during the honor ' s week of April 8-12. The new members were enthusiastic about the year to come and plans for the National Mortar Board convention were already in the making. MBAA The Master of Business Administration Association was a univeristy chartered organization that strived to provide professional and social activities for the entire class. Their class consisted of three interrelated programs. The largest program consisted of close to 60 students taking 60 hours over two years. There was also one for the one year pro- gram. They took three semesters to fulfill their require- ments. Finally the part-time students came during those nocturnal class hours to churn out a degree. These diverse groups needed a common voice and that was where we came in. Their first task was to welcome and introduce themselves to all the new students before they arrive. A friendly letter was sent to all the new students asking them to feel free to join. The group socialized at fall football games. Dr. Scott ' s magic Haloween party and the more subdued Dean Dale Williamson ' s suare. These events came mostly in the first semester when it was hard to meet everyone.

It was the largest collegiate organization of its kind, with over 15,000 members. The group was sponsored by Kiwanis International, an organization of business and professional persons. The main objectives of CKI were service, leadership and friendship. The group was active with other groups such as Easter Seals, Red Cross, the Tallahassee Housing Foundation, Someplace Else runaway shelter, the Ronald McDonald House and countless others.

The Marching Chiefs re- ceived new uniforms and res- idence halls were blessed with cable television, due to the efforts of SGA. Charles Marrelli, student senate pro tempore, said " In the past, we thought of student gov- ernments as catering to a small group of students who lived on campus. Now we in- clude everyone: older stu- dents, those who live off cam- pus, handicapped and international students. " In fact, Marrelli sponsored at least five bills providing programs that would asssist international groups, such as Indians, Koreans, and Pales- tineans, integrate into the university system. Marrelli said, " The large goal is to eventually provide an inter- national student union. " Senate also worked to pro- vide a more economic trans- portation system for off- campus students. They nego- tiated a " free fare zone " with the city ' s bus system. It per- mitted all students with val- idated identification to ride free in an area ranging from Pensacola to Tennessee Streets. One of the most important tasks that SGA handled was trying to complete and evenly disperse the 3.5 miHon dollar budget. Peter Collins, busi- ness school senator and ap- propriations chair, said, " We had the most ambitious time schedule in our history. Our budget this year was I mil- lion dollars larger than last year ' s. Many organizations knew this and requested in- creases; however, the money was already committed to the recreation center. " One ob- jective was to ensure that the money was spent to benefit the students. A $30,000 po- sition with the recreation center was cut to fund ad- ditional student activities. Collins said, " Anytime you can cut a questionable sala- ried position and give the money back to the students, you ' ve done something worthwhile. " Adapting to growth, diver- sity and change were the goals shared by all of the members of the executive branch. Brian Philpot, stu- dent body vice president, said, " With a new university president, our joining the ACC and a projected popu- lation of 40,000 ten years from now, Florida State will continue on this path of change. SGA will answer the call to change, to be the stu- dents ' voice through it all. " With the departure of Stu- dent Body President Trey Travesia and Vice President D.D. Homsby, newly elected Brian Philpot and Yvonne McGhee planned to repre- sent change and diversity. Philpot, a sophomore, was the youngest candidate to be elected to the prestigious po- sition, and McGhee was the first black female to serve as vice president.

Omega Alpha Rho The University Orientation Center promoted the growth and development of all new students by giving them a personaUzed introduction to the university. The intention of this organization was to assist the academic and personal adjustment of the students by creating a set of learning experiences which would help the student become oriented to the opportunities, resources and responsibilities of uni- versity life. Orientation played a vital role at the university by fos- tering the identification of the student with the university and building a student ' s confidence. It also supplied a positive impact on student retention. ' £ Catholic Campus Ministry Baha ' i Club The purpose of the club was to acquaint those interested with the tenets of the Baha ' i Faith such as, unity of mankind and religions, oneness of God, peace, equality of men and women, universal education and elimination of prejudice of all kinds. By sponsoring lectures, panel dis- cussion, informal gatherings, social activities and public meetings, the club aspired to implement the principles. The club organized a series of talks that dealt with current social issues, sponsored a panel discussion with speakers who represented various religions and beliefs and held weekly public meetings. Furthermore, the club spon- sored a musical concert that called for unity in diversity. Members of the Baha ' i Club participated in Martin Luther King ' s parade to show their support for racial unity, and visited Nursing Homes and entertained the residents. To promote unity and co-operations, the Baha ' i Club supported other club ' s projects, fund raising, social ac- tivates and participated in intramural volleyball. n H tudents need H[H | and desire an oasis of sup- port and acceptance from the large impersonal university, " upporting Spiritually him known.

Supporting Spiritually (Contd) The experience gained by the trials and tribulations of high school was highly valued by the members of Young Life. This ministry attempted to reach the younger students with the good news of the Gospel in a non-threatening way and in a manner differ- ent from the traditional church service. " Most of the college lead- ers volunteered their time be- cause they were influenced by their Young Life leaders while they were in high school, " Barkley French, a member of Young Life, said. In addition to the time spent with the high school students, the collegiate Young Life members led sep- arate Bible studies for college and high school students. " It ' s okay to be a Christian. They ' re normal people who like to have fun too and Young Life was a great way to have fun, " French said. The Fellowship of Chris- tian Athletes had a weekly time set aside for Christian fellowship between intercol- legiate athletes and students. Among the leaders in FCA were some common faces in the university ' s athletic world such as wide receiver, Matt Frier, duo sportsman in football and basketball, Char- lie Ward; and Softball out- fielder Becky Harrison. " FCA was a chance to take a time out of a busy college schedule and reflect on the things that are more impor- tant in Ufe, " Matt Ferguson, offensive guard and secretary of FCA said. The Christian athletes and students found it challenging to ' walk the walk ' in the col- legiate lives. Members said that their inspirational theme, " No Compromise " helped them to get through the days of long practices and hours of studying. Other parachurch organi- zations included Inter Varsi- ty Christian Fellowship, Campus Crusade for Chirst, the Christian Campus House, and many others.

United Latin Society The United Latin Society was a growing active organ- ization in the University community that existed to serve the needs of Hispanic students and others. Founded in 1 985 by FSU students, the society grew to be one of the largest minority representations on campus. The group members included student descendents from Spanish speaking countries, groups of Americans majoring in Span- ish and those interested in sharing their cultural heritage. The organization ' s activities included social parties, cul- tural movies, active speakers, field trips and intramural sports teams. Its goal was to provide Hispanic students with familiar surroundings, also to help the student adjust to the new school and or country and to provide the student with an atmosphere in which they may have felt comfortable. AEYC The Florida State Association for the Education of Young Children (FSU AEYC) served students in- terested in issues relating to young children. Professionals from the community spoke at club meetings about how they were affecting lives of young children. Additionally, these speakers provided insight on what career opportunities were available in the areas of Child Development, Family Relations and Childhood Education. The organization participated in child and family related community service projects.

If the entire stu- dent body of 28,000 students would vote, they could influ- ence the outcome of an elec- tion, " she continued. Sirota, along with her staff, registered students to vote in the fall semester. She also in- vited all students to partic- ipate in Lobby Day. " Lobby Day is a day that we spend at the capital. We let lawmakers meet us and present them our ideas. The Marching Chiefs will be there, along with the Flying High Circus, " Sirota said.

So on Wednesday, Sept. 5, Dalton came to the students. He sported a sign which read, " The Vice President is in, " Dr. Dalton set up shop in the Union courtyard amid the flea market merchandise. " I really enjoy the oppor- tunity to interact informally with students, " said Dalton. The Union booth was his way of conveying his interest in students in a symbolic way. " I ' ve found that being in a place where you ' re accessible is good for the students. " Dalton said he decided to set up shop in the Union because he understands it ' s difficult to get to see busy adjminis- trators. Students approached Dal- ton with a variety of issues. Topics ranged from the lack of air conditioning in some residence halls to bike facil- ities. Some students had complaints — the difficulty in getting some English class- es, parking problems or re- luctance to pay the Florida Public Interest Group fee in- cluded in the tuition. Some students had questions such as how to use the arts an crafts programs or wb spouses can ' t use campus rei reation activities for free.

Some students went home, some stayed for summer session and others studied abroad. One of the more unique study programs happened in the Soviet Union, an ex- change program that in- volved Florida Stae and So- viet theater students. Dean Gil Lazier and Oleg Tabakov came up with the idea for an exchange program in 1987. After three years of dealing with red tape, the ex- change program was finally approved by both countries. In May, 20 Soviet theater students and faculty mem- bers came to the University for a month. During that time they studied musical theater, which was unavail- able in the Soviet Union. They stayed in Cash Hall during their visit and got a general feel of the campus. During the day, students went to classes and at night they participated in the nor- mal activities of Florida State patrons. On weekends, the group went on excursions to Disney World, the Oslo Theater in Sarasota, Pebble Hill Planta- tion, the Reservation, andj sporting events such as FSU baseball.

Though commuting and taking a full load of classes, Nyak found time to work in the university computer lab and at the Math Help Center. Over the sum- mer, Nyak planned on intern- ing for NASA in the research department. " College is much cooler than high school, you have so much freedom here, " Nyak said.

If qJ you attended any football games, you couldn ' t help but hear his name. When you did, six points were added to the Seminole ' s score. Baker ' s accuracy and agil- ity started at the age of seven, when he first picked up the football. " It is strange that I play offense. When I picked up the football, I played defense. I didn ' t play a whole lot. My mother used to have to put all these pads on me. But, grow- ing up in my neighborhood I was around a lot of talent. When you play with talented people, like in sand lot foot- ball, you develop the quick- ness you need to play at a higher level, " Baker said. " In my free time I usually like to hang out with my 4 o O friends. I don ' t lead a boring life, but I am not real fast paced either. My best friends are Omar Ellison and my roommate, Eric Terrel. I ' m not going to lie to you and tell you that you ' ll find me at my desk studying on a Friday night. But I like to take it slow, " Baker said. As far as dating went, he remained silent on the issue. " My Mom is my girlfriend. She ' s my biggest fan. " Baker was recruited out of Lakeland, Florida. He was the only child of a single par- ent. He said that it was never a hinderance. " My Mom and my Grand- mother really spoiled me. I was never without anything. I was reaUy lucky growing up, " Baker said. He also ran track. " I start- ed running track in high school. I still run. I like it. But what I really love is basket- ball. My favorite team is the Lakers. If I could play it more I would. Being such a well rounded athlete carried with it many high goals and role models. " If I could play for any NFL team it would be the Dallas Cowboys. Even with the rec- ord they have, that is the team that I have always though was great when I was little and I have always loved them. As for as role models go, I have to say it would be Terry Anthony of the Fab Four. I really like the way he played this game and I like a lot of things he has done, " Baker said. Many moments faded once college was over, but one that Baker said he will always re- flect upon was his first col- legiate catch. " Last year, as a freshman, when I went into the Clem- son game, I got a deep pass called to me and I went u] over two guys and cam down with the catch. Tha was probably the best time right there. I was jumping uj going crazy, " Baker said. Baker said that one of th biggest drawbacks to footba was the off-season, becaus that was when they wer worked the hardest. But on of the most rewarding expe riences, according to Bakei was working with childrei He loved the opportunity t work with kids. " Whereas a lot of peopl don ' t like kids, I love them, like to help them and do goo for them. " As for his general Ufestyl Baker didn ' t like anythic too hectic.

After Ken Smith stepped down, the position of team chaplain for the Seminole football team was sought by many. As a result of the ex- cess amount of inquiries for the staff position, the pro- gram was dropped. Before the 1989 season, however, Clint Purvis, III, minister of college students at the First Baptist Church of Tallahassee, was asked to take on this unpaid position on the support staff. Purvis ' job reached far be- yond merely leading team chapel services and pre-game prayers. " A lot of people think all the mental preparation and spiritual support is done 20 minutes prior to the game, but if you don ' t have it before then, that 20 minutes won ' t make much of a difference, " Purvis said. Purvis served as a " sounding board " for all the pressure between players and their coaches and school. " I sometimes hear the players complain about their coaches or school and it ' s very important for me to be mature enough not take sides, " Purvis said. With the societal pressures between religious belief and public education Purvis was careful to follow school pol icy and protocol, as weU as NCAA regulations. " You have to find and know the boundaries so you don ' t go against the rules or offend someone, " Purvis said. Through his job as chap- lain Purvis also served as an informal counselor for the team and even performed weddings for some of the players. Purvis said that when he came on staff many players were suspect of his inten- tions. " A lot of the guys saw that I was white, baptist, and a preacher -three strikes and I was already out! " It didn ' t take long for most to realize Purvis was there to help and soon players began to call him when they had a prob- lem.

" There is a lot of idealism about how wonderful car pooling is and how every- body should share rides to and from work, " said Dr. Jon Bailey, a psychology profes- sor. " But when you get right down to the nitty-gritty, very few people are actually going to do it. " Bailey, who studied car pooling during the energy cir- sis of the late 1970 ' s, said Americans are simply not willing to endure the personal and social inconveniences that it involved. To most people, he said, daily hassles such as waiting for riders to come out of the house or dealing with other people ' s sometimes annoying habits, outweigh the long term savings on gasoline and related car costs. " Somebody comes down with a cold and everybody ' s got it, " Bailey said. " An ac- cident doesn ' t injure just one person, it injures three of four. People spill coffee on you new car seats. It ' s just not hard to envision the negative consequences of car pool- ing. " For many people, Bailey said, the time driving to and from work was the only time they have alone all day. The rest of the time, they had to deal with co-workers, family members and friends. " As a society, we are very interested in preserving our personal space, " he said. " We are very averse to deal- ing with personal conflict and the fact that we might have to deal with that conflict is something we want to avoid. And we ' re willing to pay a very high price. " Bailey ' s studies showed that employers could spur car pooling by giving those who share rides rewards such as reserved parking spaces or a few minutes off early to get s jump on traffic. In the meantime, he said that he expects budget mind ed Americans to off sei higher gasoline prices in oth- er ways. " I think we ' ll take shortei trips, stay in a cheaper hote and come back from vacatior a day earlier, " Bailey said. " ] think we won ' t eat dessert. ] think that ' s where the saving; will come from as opposed tc trying to round up a bunch o folks for a car pool.

I was very outgoing . . . and very irresponsible. When I graduated from high school, I looked around. I had many friends and won popularity awards, but I didn ' t have scholastic awards. I didn ' t have respect. All of my friends were getting scholar- ships and I realized what I had was worthless. I decided things have got to change, " Traviesa said. Things had indeed changed for Traviesa. After founding the Seminole Party (along with past Student Body Pres- ident, Sean Pittman), Traviesa started his own campaign for leading Florida State. He remained an active member of Seminole Ambas- sadors, Student Alumni Foundation, College Repub- licans, Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity among other or- ganizations. In 1988, he was a member of the Florida House of Representative ' s Committee of Students Plan- ning for Tomorrow. Traviesa, however, did not surround himself with lau- rels. A few certificates of achievement hung on his of- fice walls. No photos of him- self and area leaders greeted you at the door. One notice- able photo (which hung be- hind his desk) was of his grandfather. " He has been my biggest mentor. If I could grow up to be half of what he is, I ' d be happy, " Traviesa said. What Trey wanted to be was accessible to the stu- dents. He welcomed every knock on his door and en- couraged all students to come by with their ideas. " If someone wants to come up and talk about parking for a half hour, so be it, " Traviesa said. Beore he left the unive rsity (with degrees in finance and English and a minor Span- ish), he wanted to address policies concerning financial aid, tuition, minority enroll- ment and academic advising. ?=«• O " After I get my law degree and my masters, my main fo- cus will be to start my family. I want to get a good job, with a good company and focus on my family. I think I can serve people better with age. May- be when I am 501 will run for U.S. Senate. I ' ll wait and see what happens, " Traviesa said. On the weekends, Trey could almost always be found in town. His schedule de- manded all of his free time. " If I can get away, I like to take off to St. George, I love the beach. Sometimes I getC — movies or try to go dancing- even though I ' m a horrible dancer, " he said. Trey credits any success to his family and faith. " My « — ' • family has given me every- thing they can. I ' ve been for- tunate. I am a very active Catholic. My faith is very im- portant to me. I think these two things have helped me do all the good that I have done, " Traviesa said. Frances Passannante 0- C= uo ■■■?:. 9m ■s- , •:. . " -- -• ■■•-V ■ ' . .?■ ' ■•. " -.

It ' s i onder that with her ath- expertise, she planned ecoming a sportscaster. 3ece still had a love for azines, and magazines d her. " Elle " magazine ed her one of the five t beautiful women in the d. This was something rolled her eyes at. Magazines like to make an exaggeration. Every mag- azine does something like that. It was nice, but I don ' t take it seriously, " Reece said. Reece remained an active part of the modeUng scen e. She spent her summer and fall semester at school and took the spring session off to live in New York. Traveling to places like Italy, London, Paris and Egypt were all rou- tine to Reece. She still pre- ferred Tallahassee. " Tallahassee is very whole- some compared to living in New York. There is a lot of violence up there and people in the modeling business can lead eccentric lives. I like to slow pace that is here, " Reece said. Recce ' s life was anything but slow. Her day began at 6:45 a.m. with a rigorous workout with her teammates. After early morning classes and practice in the late af- ternoon, she was up late into the night studying. " I don ' t have much free time. If I do, I like to go to movies, maybe read a book. I try to keep in touch with my friends, " Reece said. One of the things that Gabrielle Reece was quick to let you know was the she is like anyone else. " I think people often think that I lead some kind of per- fect life. I don ' t think that. I am very happy. I ' m not caught up in my own life. Not even when I am working. I feel that when people are giv- en a certain talent that they shouldn ' t exploit it. Every- thing comes back if you do that, " Reece said. Reece credited her coach, Cecile Reynaud, and photog- raphers Coral Wigeal and Carol Lavia for aiding her ac- complishments. Frances Passannante X) o c=r »■■ ■ c= ( iS. ' .

One graduate, Dorothy J. Castleberry, exemplified the kind of commitment Graham advocated. Castleberry, 70, is the mother of ten children, six of whom are college graduates. She delayed her own educa- tion for the benefit of her family, but never gave up the dream of earning her degree. In April, she received an ovation for her lifelong com- mitment to the pursuit of ed- ucation. The 1991 graduating class was the largest yet for the Panama City Campus, with 1 07 students receiving diplo- mas in fromal ceremonies and 87 others who graduated without marching. Commencement exercises were followed by an elaborate reception sponsored by the Student Government Coun- cil. SGC also hosted a banquet for the graduates, recognizing student who made exception- al academic or who worked diligently for the university and its students. Students at the FSU- Panama City Campus came from diverse backgrounds. Many were young people. Many were retired military personnel turning to teaching careers. Others were mothers and father who first post- poned their own educations to help get their children through school. Many were already famil- iar with the working world, and they brought to their studies a commitment and maturity that made the Pan- ama City campus especially successful.

With his sweeping economic reforms of Perestroyka came wide spread shortages and di- sidence. Not only in Russia but in the republics as well. As the year wore on the Baltic republics of Lithuania, Latvia and Astonia were the loudest voices to be heard for separation. The countries were soverign before WWII and desired to be so again. Faced with a country un- raveling at his feet, Gorbachev took a last ditch action by ordering Soviet troops into the Baltics to quell the unrest. This action was poorly received by the entire world community. But the War in the Persian Gulf provided suficient political cover for Gorbachev. The unrest in the Soviet Union was mostly a cause of the extremely poor living conditions, which grew worse with economic reforms to al- leviate them. Prices of basic consumer foods and consum- er goods skyrocketed. Milk and bread tripled in cost and eggs, tea and cooking oil dou- bled. One of his many reforms to improve the conditions in his country, which failed was a currency exchange. Citizens were ordered to exchnage all 50 and 100 ruble bank notes for lower denominations. But Soviet citizens lined up out- side banks, complaining that ordinary people were the main victims, not the black market he was trying to af- fect. Such conditions created an extremely unstable, volitile political environment for Gorbachev. The Baltic States, Georgia and Molda- via were pushing for inde- pendence from the Union. Some Central Asian repub- lics were complaining as well, they were fed up with sup- plying cheap raw materials to the center and paying high prices for scarce, shoddy con- sumer goods. Gorbachev was increasing- ly losing political favor and backing. To his people, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize seemed unable to effi- ciently manage the affiars of his country. Many turned to another leader. Crowds gath- ered in support of Boris Yel- stin,a maverick Russian lead- er who favored the idea of a popularly elected president. Even popularity for this new leader faded as store shelves remained empty. Popular lethargy, which had reached epidemic propor- tions, was hardly a spark for iminent revolution. Even at the pro-Yelstin rally the mood of the crowd was more curious than angry. In the Far East city of Petropavlovsk, panic buying became almost routine. Three thousand peo- ple reportedly lined up at a local bank to withdraw mon- ey, and then run straight to the shops. It became clear as time wore on, that a mere leader could not change the fortune. The will of the people with strong foreign and domestic backing was necessary to save the country. An economy and industries that dated back to the early 1 900 ' s needed to be entirely overhauled. Robert Parker WORLD WIDE Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev greets president Bush at a summit meeting in Washington, D.C. The leaders agreed to strive for a reduction of troops in Europe. The Bush administration later rep- rimanded Gorbachev for his treotement of the Baltic republics.

" 1 f % - ' l LJ 1 Review JIM HENSON In the summer of 1990 there was a silence in the chil- dren ' s television world. The voice of that lovable green frog, Kermit, was gone. His creator and voice, Jim Hen- son had passed away. Henson was the pioneer who created the world re- nowned children ' s television program " Sesame Street " and later created " The Mup- pett Show. " Henson began his career in the 50 ' s with a modest local program called " Sam and Friends " in Washington. " I make things I ' d like to watch, " Henson said. He loved to watch the scenes and stories that he created. He was a young teenager when TV arrived, and he devel- oped a quick fondness for " Kukla, Fran and Ollie. " " Sesame Street " became an institution all around the world. With such characters as Bert and Ernie, the Cookie Monster and the Grouch, the show captured the imagina- tions of children. It enter- tained them while it taught them valuable lessons in life. Using charcter such as Kermit the Frog and the same puppeting approach, Henson created the Muppet Show in 1976. The show was a great success and by some counts had 2 35 million viewers around the world. In a mid-80 ' s interview, Henson was asked if he would like to try translating his touch with pigs, frogs and and cookie monsters to peo- ple. " People? No. A lot of other directors are good at people. What I know are creatures. They ' re a little harder to work with, but I know how to get them to say what I want, " Henson said Dalton, James Dalton, John Darst, David Davis, Chris Davis, Tim 188 142, 208 188 115 125, 126, 129,203 Dawsey, Lawrence Dean, Kevan Deary, Lisa Deckerhoff, Gene Delta Chi 13,82,85,88, 89, 95, 96 190 159 13 161, 163, 171 Delta Delta Delta 13, 14, 147, 151, 152, 156, 158, 160, 161, 163, 171, 175 Delta Gamma 13, 138, 147, 149, 151, 152, 153, 158, 160, 171 Delta Sigma Phi 153 Delta Sigma Theta 13, 148, 178 Delta Sigma Pi 144, 174 Delta Tau Delta 167, 171, 173, 178 Delta Zeta 151, 158, 160, 168 Derlak, Christy Dermody, Brandon Designated Drivers Devallon, Ari:hur Devine, Mike Dinkins, Howard Disser, Mike Dittmer, Scott Dixon, Reggie Dobard, Rodney Dolphin Daze Donalson, Vicky Dormay, Mari;y Dorsey, Chris Double Dare Douglas, Natalie Doyle, Jason Draayon, Mike Drivers, Designated Duce, Kevin Dumias, Mark Dunbar, Marc Dunond, Mike Durham, Chris 112, 113 168 185, 192, 199 171 58 82,95 153 205 88 107 151, 161 32C 154 21 161 122 134 55 199 177 61 124, 125 147 118 ■iUZi- 9; Ki -4| j_j||gJPM Edwards, Doug Eisenberg, Mike Elliot, Paul Ellison, Omar ElUis, Cheryl Epstein, Richard Estlund, Michelle Eunice, Chad 107 153, 154 69,71 217 32B 188 13 134 Faucette, Tiffany FCA Federalist Society Felder, Kenny Feldman, Scott Ferguson, Matt Femandes, Bobby Fernandez, George Ficek, Scott Figley, Charles FIJI Fimenitsch, Bill Financial Management Association 192 137 203 188 125 13 85, 203 125 188 153 32D 138, 158, 160, 171 173 Finch, Rick 55 Firnhaber, Erica 137 Flaczinski, Kelly 131 Flagg, David 215 Flemming, Julie 17 Flying High Circus 215 Flynn, Kathleen 205 FOCUS 203 Fodor, Mark 23 Foote, Angela 29 FPIRG 8, 29, 30, 180 ,200 Frank, Jason 122 French, Barkley 203 Frier, Matt 82, 85, 91 ,95 203 Fritz, Jennifer 203 FSU Showchoir 207 Funk, Fancy 196 Furbish, David 200 Gaines, Davis 13, ll Galbreath, Julie 102 Galin, Aleksander 5 ' GAMMA 185 Gamma Phi Beta 147, 151, 155 156, 161, 163, 167, 171, 176, 179 200, 21S Garrahan, Kathleen Gay, Kevin 13: 17 " ; 21( ' 12: ' 131 ' 18J ' 138, 14!

But some of the most important advances were not made on the battle field or in a smoke filled room. They were made in the laboratory. Advances in the fields of science and medicine were made all over the world with tremendous impact. The problems with the en- vironment and the war in the Persian Gulf sparked a re- newed interest in alternative fuels. Steps were being taken that guaranteed the availability of cars, vans, and pickup trucks powered by electricity, nat- ural gas and reformulated gasoline within the decade. Alcohol fuels such as meth- anol and ethanol were also on the way. The Clean Air Act mandated that gasoline be re- engineered to reduce harmful pollutants and required that certain commercial fleets use clean fuels such as domesti- cally produced natural gas. Compressed Natural Gas was the first alternative likely to make a dent in gasoline sales. It was cheaper than gas- oline, caused less tailpipe poUuction and came from relatively abundant U.S. and Candadian sources. About 700,000 cars and trucks worldwide used CNG ' s. On the medical front, there was an increasing occurance of health care professionals with AIDS. An estimated 46,520 health care workers were known to be infected with the HIV virus. One such worker, that sparked a controversey over reporting HIV infection in health care workers was a Florida Dentist. One of his patients, Kim Bergalis, was believed to have been in- fected by him. A Johns Hop- kins surgeon who was in- fected also operated on 1,800 people. There were, however, ad- vances made in the treatment and discovery of the HIV vi- rus. Doctors found an effec- tive treatment for AIDS- related pneumonia. An early treatment with prednisone and similar steriods could halve the death rate from Pneumocystis carinii pneu- monia, the number one cause of death among AIDS pa- tients. In order to raise world- wide AIDS awareness, Dec. 1 was designated as World Aids Day. People and organ- izations dimmed their lights in one way or another in an effort to raise contributions for medical research and care givers, while demonstrating that they planned to intensify their efforts to find solutions to the AIDS crisis. In an un- precedented act of coopera- tion, 23 major cable networks agreed to give up a prime- time minute to raise aware- ness about AIDS. AIDS was not the only medical field that made sev- eral breakthroughs. Re- searchers were watching a new gene-therapy experiment for signs of progress in the fight against cancer. The in- novative treatment used the body ' s own chemical de- fenses to fight inoperable tu- mors. Patients were injected with their own genetically al- tered white blood cells. The hundreds of millions of cells wre souped up with copies of a gene that produced an anti- cancer enzyme. The cells would them home in on the sties of inoperable tumors, where the enzyme would dis- solve the cancer, leaving the rest of the body unharmed. Also in the medical field, a bitter controversy was sparked over a French abor- tion pill, RU-486. The pill was hailed by anti- abortionists as a death pill af- ter a woman died after using RU-486, plus the follow-up hormone injection to in- craease the pills effective- ness. In a related area, a new birth control device was de- veloped. The Norplant was said to safely prevent preg- nancy for five years. Six matchstick size implants were inserted into a womens arm; the implants contained the same hormones in the pill. Medical ethicists and women ' s groups were wor- ried that the device might be- come a form of coercive birth control that could be used a s a solution to teen pregnancy and to stem the epidimic of drug-addicted babies. The nationwide health care industry was not without its changes as well. On Jan. 1 Medicare began covering part of the costs of mam- mograms for women over 65. Medicare paid up to $44, or 80 percent of the maximum allowed $55 fee. Robert Parker U P FOR REVIEW BUSINESS " Downs It was a year of ups and downs for the world ' s economic communities. From sweeping democratic re- forms to war in the Per- sian Gulf, world events had an impact on every countrie ' s economy. Political reforms in eastern Europe and the Soviet Union led to wide- spread economic changes. Eastern coun- tries such as Romania and Poland left the rel- ative economic safety of communism for freedom. The countries found themselves separated from the support of the Soviet Union and were thrust into a cold and harsh economic environ- ment. Unemployment became a new word in many countries ' vocabu- laries, as did inflation and hardship. The economic support of many western coun- tries including the United States and West Germa- ny helped soften the blows of reform. But Germany under- went a reform of its own. In early 1990 the two Germanys, East and West were reunited eco- nomically and politically. This placed an incredible strain on the two coun- tries ' people and econo- mies. The west had to in- tegrate a run down and outdated industry and economy and the east had to deal with the difer- ences between capitalism and communism. Europe, however, was not the only economic community to feel pain- ful economic damages. The winds of war and re- cession in the United States led to an economic downturn. With the war in the Gulf came higher fuel prices, which led to higher prices on many products. Car owners found themselves paying anywhere from 1 5-30 per gallon for gasoline. An industry to feel the sting of higher gas prices even more so than the regular consumer was the airline industry. Higher fuel prices, which some claimed were the result of price gouging by oil com- panies, drove some air- lines to and over the brink of disaster. The prices proved to be the straw that broke Eastern Air Lines ' back. After months of operating un- der Chapter 1 1 bankrupt- cy, the airline was forced to file for Chapter 7 liq- uidation. Pan American World Airways was also driven into bankruptcy by fuel prices. But the war that brought on this economic harshness was just what the country needed to pull itself out of a deep- ening recession. The short and succesful war renewed consumer confi- dence in the U.S. econ- omy and defense stocks soared. The country was ex- pected to be entirely out of the recession as con- sumer confidence re- turned and the Dow Jones was once again flirting with the 3000 benchmark. One of the key items that helped the country into that recession was the budget defecit. The Bush administration put the defecit somewhere between $300 and $350 billion. And that figure did not include the esti- mated $30 billion to pay for U.S. troops in the Per- sian Gulf.

Sammy Davis never lived in Las Vegas, but he credited the city with giving him the chance to reach superstar sta- tus. Davis and Las Vegas hit the big time together. He was just emerging into stardom in the 50 ' s when Vegas was moving into that golden era. " This town made me and there ain ' t no doubt about it. This town made me what I am today, " David said at a 1 976 benefit dinner. Davis ' final two years in Las Vegas were spent with Jerry Lewis at Baly ' s. Those shows, and his national tour with Sinatra and Liza Minelli allowed Davis to exit on a high note. He died of cancer in the summer of 1990. STEVIE R VAUGHAN Stevie Ray Vaughan, the blues guitarist who fought his way back from drug and al- cohol abuse, died in a tragic helicopter accident in August of 1990. Vaughan had narrowly avoided being crushed by a 30-foot tall, 6-foot wide beam after a show in New Jersey only a month before. According to his Uncle, Joe Cook, Vaughan was anx- ious to get home. He told his older brother that he was in a hurry to get back with his fi- ance. Vaughan boarded the hel- icopter that was to carry him and four others to Chicago. The heUcopter crashed in a field about 12:35 a.m. shortly after taking off from the Al- pine Valley concert facility near East Troy, Wis. ■ i J LJ ± Review RYAN WHITE He was only 1 2 years old in 1984 when he contracted the HIV virus through blood clotting treatment to combat his hemophelia. Six years later, at 1 8, White clung to Ufe, hooked up for seven days to a life support system. He was in a coma induced by the painkillers and sedatives that allowed his body to toletate the equipment. In the short time he had, White taught the nation a few things about AIDS, that any- body can catch it and those who do, deserve to be treated with love and compassion. " He was a young hero, " Barbara Cleaver, of Tor- rance, president and co- founder of Mothers of AIDS Patients-L.A., said. " I wish all persons with AIDS would just come out and stand up, and their families for them. I wish all parents could stand with their heads high, there ' s nothing to be ashamed of. " White and his mother Jeanne were among the first in the nation to stand up. In 1985, they went public with their tragedy, taking on thier local school system in a dis- crimination suit after Ryan was barred from attending classes at Western Middle School near Kokomo. " Through Ryan White ' s courage in speaking out, the public now understands that there is no scientific basis for discrimination. Ryan was really an inspiration to the entire hemophiliac and AIDS communities, " Alan Brown- stein, executive director of the National Hemophilia Foundation said.

From Stu- dent Government to the school ' s president, all parts of life were effected. New fa- cilities were built, and old ones were renovated. It was a year of change and contro- versy. Not only was the Univer- sity chosen as the site for the National High Magnetic Field labratory but it also added a new Biomedical Re- search Facility and a multi- purpose gymnasium and natorium. Also, one of the oldest residence halls on campus, Jennie Murphree which was built in 1912, was closed to begin its $7 million renovation. The dorms exte- rior brick remained but the inside of the building was gutted. The traditional rooms that knew many students were replaced by larger rooms and a bathroom for every two room suite. The electrical, fire-alarm and sprinkler systems were also to be upgraded. But not everything that oc- cured on campus was so uplifting. The Student Gov- ernment Association was part of several controversies. The first involved the Center for Participant Eduction. CPE wanted to publish two photos by Robert Maplethorpe in its directory of classes which was funded by SGA. But SGA considered the photos to be unsuitable for publishing, the decision was upheld by a student com- mittee and a popular student vote. CPE printed the direc- tory without the photos be- fore the vote. Another controversy was sparked by the SGA elections in the spring. The first was a last minute switch from Sen- ator Collins to Senator Philpot as the Seminole Party presidential candidate. The two rival parties. Monarchy and Renegade, claimed that the switch was not allowed. The student elections com- mittee, however, disagreed. Another controversy came from allegations of ballot tampering when the election results were not announced right away. The votes were tallied in the time period allowed by SGA election rules. Two events that students rallied together against were the proposed state budget cuts in education and an in- crease in tuition for in and out of state students. In the late spring students from Florida State and other state universities gathered at the capitol to protest the planned tuition hikes. They signed a petition reminding legislators that there were registered voters and urged them to op- pose the tuition hikes when the budget reached the House and Senate floors. In late April, the Univeristy was slated to receive more than $18 million in Public Edu- cation Capital Outlay funds toward construction projects in the state budget. The state budget was not the only occasion students had to come together. Stu- dents also gathered at the an- nual ice cream social to bid farwell to president Bernard F. Sliger who was retiring af- ter 1 5 years at the University. Students also bid farwell to the dean of the College of Human Sciences, Dr. Marga- ret Sitton. Sitton announced her retirement, effective Jan. 1, 1992. At her retirement she will have served as dean for more than 1 9 years. The university also lost a valuable alumna, but not to retirement. Actress Nancy Kulp, who was best known for her role as Jane Hathaway on " The Beverly Hillbillies " died of cancer at the age of 69. Kulp graduated from the Florida State College for Women with a degree in jour- nalism. She was involved in several charity organizations at her home in Palm Springs, such as the Humane Society of the Desert, the Desert The- atre League and United Cer- ebral Palsy. One major problem that plagued the University was that of campus and local crime. Students would have liked to think that they would never be affected by crimes but the incidences at the Uni- versity of Florida made it all too plain. During 1 990, there were 12 campus robberies, just four more than the num- ber reported in the first three months of 1991 according to the Tallahassee Democrat. Students on and off campus felt the impact, two students were robbed after a previous incident at the Alumni Vil- lage. But with organizations such as Student Govern- ment ' s student escort service and devices such as the blue light safety trail, increased lighting and awareness the campus police were able to make the campus safer for students. Robert Parker U P FOR OTHER REVIEW People And Events With Impact The year was filled with events too nu- merous to cover in any one story. From tragic natural disasters to sweeping political victories, the world experienced changes that made 1990-91 an incredibly unique year. In Nicaragua, Violeta Chamorro was chosen as the country ' s leader in a general election that was monitored by more than 3,000 interna- tional observers, including the United Nations. Chamor- ro followed her victory with a trip to the United States to request economic aid for her country. Political victories here in the U.S. included the confor- mation of David Souter to the position of Supreme Court j ustice. Souter became the Court ' s 105th member af- ter his Senate conformation. Another uplifting political moment occured for General Norman Schwartzkopf, the commander in chief of the Persian Gulf forces. During the Queen of England ' s Roy- al visit to the United States, she bestowed honorary knighthood on the general in Tampa. The general became the 41st American to receive knighthood. In other countries political times were changing as well. After 45 years of a cold sep- aration the two Germanics were fmally reunified. A huge celebration was held in Berlin at the location of the Brandenberg gate and was at- tended by world leaders. On the environmental side, Earth Day 1991 was held on April 22. It was the 21st an- nual earthday and celebra- tions were held in countries all around the world. A huge celebration was also held in the nation ' s capitol. Earth day came with growing pub- lic concern over the environ- ment and their role in it. Cor- porations such as McDonald ' s took part in the celebration. The company gave away saplings free of charge during Earth Day weekend. But all environmental oc- curences were not so good. An oil tanker off the coast of Italy, which containd four times the oil spilled by the Exxon Valdez, burned and eventually sank. The ship was loaded with 970,000 barels, or nearly 41 million gallons, of oil. Another incident in Italy involving an oil tanker took the lives of 139 people. In Leghorn, an Italian Ferry collided with an oil tanker setting it ablaze. There was only one survivor from the ferry. And back in the United States, officers from the Los Angeles police department were indicted for the beating of Rodney King. The inci- dent was taped by amateur cameraman George Holiday. The tape showed the officers apparently brutally beating King who appeared to be de- fenseless. At the time, no ver- dict had yet been reached in the case. But it did spark ma- jor protest from minorities of the police department. Robert Parker WORLD WIDE Supreme Court Justice David Souter is sworn in as president Bush and his aides look on. Souter sparked controversy over the major Court issue of abortion. People were concerned that Souter might be the vote that swayed the Court one way or the other on the issue.

Rev. Ralph Da- vid Abernathy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ' s chief lieu- tinant, died at the age of 64 from an acute pulmonary embolsim at Crawford Long Hospital. His son, state Rep. Ralph David Abernathy III said his father had mixed feelings about the achievements of the civil rights movement he helped to create. " He was happy with some of the progress we have made. I serve in the Georgia House of Representatives be- cause of the work my father did, but he always told me that I wouldn ' t be free until everybody was free, " Abernathy said. DAVID LEAN " Good films can only be made by a crew of dediated maniacs, " were the words of renowned British film direc- tor David Lean. Lean directed such feats as " Lawrence of Arabia, " " Doctor Zhivago " and " Bridge on the River Kwai. " He died in the spring at the age of 83. He had been ill earlier and was forced to postpone pro- duction of " Nostromo, " an adaptation of Joseph Con- rad ' s novel set in South America. In his career, Lean moved from intimate dramas to sweping, big-budget epics set in exotic locations. " I prefer directing stories about hu- man beings in a little comer of the wo rld. And I want that place to have hard and beau- tiful qualities, " Lean said in an interview with UPI.

I sat down on the long, grey couch and smiled nervously at the face across from me. He re- turned the smile and in- troduced himself. " Hi. My name is Danny Hearn, what ' s yours? " he said. I an- swered his question and we talked about school and the dif- ferent sections which we wanted to work on in the book. One by one new faces entered the room and gath- ered in the of- fice. Editor Dana Comfort came into the room and welcomed the new and old staff members. She gave us a course descrip- tion and told us of the committment and dedication which were required for producing the 1991 edition of the RENEGADE. Story and photo assignments were made and the hard work began. Pre- lims, pica rulers, croppers and grease pencils became a part of my daily life. A few weeks later, section editors were chosen. I was shocked when Dana announced that I would be the new Sports Editor. My staff consisted of photographers Zulma Crespo, Jeff Wasielewski and Clay Witherspoon. ments involving the Seminoles.

I could be found on the phone at any point in time talking with secretaries of coaching greats Pat Ken- nedy and Bobby Bowden. Caffeine and chocolate filled deadlines came and went. Long, frustrating hours were poured into completing the book. We missed a few classes and our social lives were sacrificed many times, all for the sake of a deadline. I kept trying to reassure everyone that it would all be worth it when the book came in. As a staff we made lasting friendships with one another and memories good and bad that we can only look back and laugh at. . . spontaneously, of course.

Candidates were interviewed over and; over for the position of university president. The student body and administration ea- gerly awaited a decision. Athletically, the Seminoles were crowned Metro Conference Champions in more than one sport and FSU hosted the NCAA baseball regional tournament. New buildings like the biomedical research facility and ad- dition to TuUy Gym were only clues to our rising progress as a university. In the spring semester, the search committee made its decision. Dale Lick, president of the University of Maine, would become the new president of Florida State University. So as the academic year progressed we found that accepting change was easier said than done. The reality of the year ' s events began to set in and hit home for so many of us.

I was forced to contain that excitement days later when I began interviewing applicants for positions on staff. I was faced with the harsh reality of inexperience -not only on my own behalf but on the staffs behalf as well. Their inexperience, however, was matched only by their enthusiasm and support for the year- book program. It was that enthusiasm and readiness that helped us get by. The " 110 Percent Club, " as we called it, made life much easier. Jen and Trish salvaged Greeks and kept us laughing even when things seemed hopeless. Gail became the all- purpose staff member and Zulma succeeded at the im- possible task of being the only photographer. Amy tracked down every athlete and coach on campus and Robert even let me drive his Volvo through a cotton field in Alabama. I managed to put my two cents worth somewhere in between. I don ' t know what ever made me think I could do it alone. Thanks guys. - " r It didn ' t take over t wo weeks for yearbook to become my life. My staff became my closest friends and my office my home. It seemed that all my vacations were spent at year- book conventions and workshops. My old friends lost all hope when I failed to look at a menu without commenting on the typeface. Deadlines seemed to approach us more than they passed us by. We were never really sure whether or not we ' d make it. I thank God for hearing our deadline cries for help and pulling us through an eternity of quad-paks. I am also thankful for my roommate Robin for understanding that yearbook deadlines had to come before dirty dishes and taking out the trash. Thank you for being patient. The biggest lesson we learned as a staff though was not how to write a catchy lead (especially not how to write a catchy lead) but how to take advantage of our resources. We woul d not have survived without the help and support of so many. :: ' -: -■• ■■■■:■:■ " -.;. ' ■. ' ■•--: ' ■■ " ::■ ,:. ■-••.- ■■: ' -■ " : ■-■.

Mayer for his continued contribution since the first REN- EGADE edition. Appreciation also goes to Joann Cruz and her secretary Amy for tolerating at least three phone calls a day from my assistant editor, to Ryals Lee and Sports Information and Marketing for endless copies of media guides and top notch photography, to Dr. Jerry Gilmer and to my friend Ramiro Inguanzo and the Union Board for listening to our complaints in time of need. Much gratitude also goes out to the Student Senate and the entire Student Government Association for their continued support as well. And finally to my parents for providing an infinite amount of stress relieving phone calls to what seemed like a very distraught daughter. I love you both. When the last week of classes rolled around I thought this book would never be complete, but when it was I felt a sense of accomplishment attributed to every person who had a hand in its production. Through our extreme dedication and hard work, we chalked one more up for The Florida State University.
