It is an undefinable quality that sets us apart from other schools and makes unique. It ' s a common bond for students at the university. The mindset starts as just a feeling the hrst time we visit the campus, something in the back of our head that clicks to tell us this is where we belong. That feeling grows as we are exposed to more of the university at freshman orientation. We begin to learn our way around campus and have our first l.D. made. Move-in day comes; we all pile into dorms, apartments and houses. Hopelessly trying to set up phone service, cable and utilities. Before we know it, the first day of classes has hit, the campus phone system becomes jammed as everyone tries to fix their schedule, people are sitting in on classes, going to the wrong rooms, getting lost, fighting lines to buy books for the first assignments and packing the Registrar ' s Office. In the blink of an eye, two weeks are gone. People who (Continued to page 5) Pholo by Zulma Crcspo 2 - Opening (_,oach Bowden always keeps his boys busy.

The more time passes, the more comfortable we feel. The first month is filled with so many new experiences. There is so much to learn, how to get football tickets, where the stadium is, when campus ofhces are open, where to park, where not to park, how to get to classes and how to deal with the Tallahassee weather. By the time the year is through, it will all become second nature. The university goes from being just ' a school ' to being ' our school. ' After the anxiety and tension wears off, we begin to find our niche at the university. Some choose to join one of the hundreds of clubs and organizations, others participate in Rush and join the Greek system, students begin to form intramural teams, while others join varsity and club teams. We find a bond with people from the same city or similar backgrounds. Everything is a hrst, a trip to Buffalo ' s for wings, the Ice cream Social with President Lick, staying in the library studying until we get kicked out at 1:30 a.m., home pre-game parties, roadtrips to away games, the fight song and the Marching Chiefs. The university and everything about it becomes a part of us. We hare a common bond with 28,000 other students. It ' s that feeling we get when the football team comes out onto the field and Chief Osceola spears the field. The same feeling we get when we ' re relaxing with friends on Landis Green, or I going to an SCE concert at the Club Downunder. a. I It is a Florida State of Mind. a: o - Opening - 5 We settled into our new campus lives and found ourselves living the student ' s life. We were adjusting to roommates, meeting neighbors, dealing with dorm life and having our first tragic encounters with the laundry room. We began to fall into the stereotype of ' a college student. ' We became accustomed to what was happening on and around campus. Everything that happened on campus ef- fected us. New Debitek cards for the Coke machines, renova- tions on Doak Campbell stadium and residence halls, local construction and campus expansion were all topics for con- versation. We found ourselves httmg m to what the student ' s life had to offer: late night parties, late night study sessions, the Union Fleamarket, concerts at the Club Downunder and parking hassles. All of these things were becoming a part of our new State of Mind and a part of us. Each aspect of university life added another dimension to us that was not there before. »»a Oi, -• ' " «» ps lUDENT 6 - Student Life T TFF JCudents Carey Shrum and Brad Wall relax and study on Bernie ' s bench on Landis Green.

However, that changed in 1851 when the Florida Legislature called for two seminaries, one on each side of the Suwannee River. East Florida Seminary opened soon thereafter in Ocala, and later became the University of Florida in Lake City, then Gainesville. The decision on where the West Florida Seminary would be located was not so easy. After six years of proposals and counterproposals, Tallahassee was selected as the site of the West Florida Seminary, ahead of both Marianna and Quincy. West Florida Seminary is now The Florida State University, a senior member m Florida ' s nine college State University System. The university went through many changes m the years before it was re- named. In its first forty years of existence, the school survived the Civil War and Reconstruction. During the war, the school was even known as the Florida Military College. It also survived declining enrollment due to the increase in academic requirements to be admitted. Then, m 1905, the state legislature passed the Buckman Act that replaced multiple small schools with a university for men and a college for women. In the early twentieth century the school became known as the Florida State College for Women. This era in the school ' s history was marked by President Edward Conradi. When he took over in 1909, FSCW had 257 students, five buildings and the campus encompassed only 13 acres of land. When he retired in 1941, FSCW had an enrollment of two-thousand, twenty buildings and had grown to 88 acres of land. Doak Sheridan Campbell replaced Conradi and six years later, men joined this all female campus. May 7, 1947 the state legislature approved the bill for co- education and renamed the school The Florida State University. Later that year, FSU received its nickname, chosen by the students m a campus-wide contest. The Semi- noles was the winning choice, followed by the Statesmen. In the following 45 years, the university grew to what it is today. In the fifties, the Sandels Building and TuUy Gym were constructed, along with additions to the Wescott Building. In the sixties, the university opened an overseas study center in Florence, Italy. Football Coach Bobby Bowden and former President Bernard F. Sliger arrived in 1976. During its history, Florida State expanded into one of the most respected academic institutions in the nation. That trend continued into the nineties. Florida State became the ninth member of the Atlantic Coast Conference July 1, 1991, a bond that rewarded the institution both academically and athletically. In 1992, construction began on the $75 million University Center. The project added five buildings adjacent to Doak Campbell Stadium, provided additional office and classroom space and expanded Moore Athletic Center. The university made great strides in it early stages. That growth continued and led it into the future.

Your buddies and you make a quick trip to a convenient store for gas and grab a drink for the road before heading off. Once you ' re on your way, you and your friends hsten to tunes on the radio and kick back. Excitement and apprehension are in the air. " This weekend will be one we can tell the grandkids about, " the driver jokes. " Yea, only three more hours and we ' ll be there, " a buddy replies. " Gah, I ' m just glad to be out of Tallahassee, " another friend says and with that you ' re gone. Road trips were made frequently by students. Some were to sporting events, some to parties, some to go home and some to get away from school. Regardless, road trips have become part of a tradition on campus which made the total college experience complete. " It was so much fun when I went with my boyfriend to Miami, " senior Michelle Doherty said, " there is so much to do there. We went to the beach. Coconut Grove and some night clubs. There ' s so much excitement there, dehnitely a change from Tallahassee. " Road trips were often made for a change of pace and scene. With busy schedules and limited time, often getting away to a " different world " was the remedy. " When my friends and I road trip we usually head for the beach. It ' s great to get away for a while, you have fun, drmk beer and hang out with friends - what could be better? " junior Liz Baisden said. Although the weekend ' s events were what would be remembered, getting there had memories on there own. " We were on I- 10 when this guy m a BM ' W kept writing notes to us asking us to get m his car with him because he was lonely. After a while we wrote him back and asked him what he did for a living. He told us he was a doctor.. " We read it, thought sure you ' re a lonely, handsome, rich doctor - NOT - and we bolted, " sophomore, Jenny Chamberlain said. " 1 like to encounter in adventure, " senior, Kelly Wolfe said, " the best part of road trips is reaching your destination. Going to Mardi Gras was great. It was cool being in an atmosphere where everyone cuts loose. Losing my camera though, was uncool, but the memories were awesome. " Going to a school that had such a strong athletic program caused many students to travel to follow different sports. " I ' ll road trip for sporting events, spring break and Mardi Gras, " senior Seth Frankel said, " The great part about going to an away sports game IS that It ' s fun to be m a hostile stadium where you know everyone (the opposition) hates you and you can show your team support. Like LSU, they hated us and I loved it. Die hard fans are great - and I ' m proud to be one of them. " Road trips were taken for various reasons. Some were taken with motives in mind while others just happened. Regardless, road tripping created memories students could cherish for the rest of their lives.

This day was the beginning of homecoming which proved once again to be a very memorable weekend The homecoming festivities included the traditional parade, POW WOW and the Reservation Run followed by the football game where the Princess and Chief were ofhcially crowned. The parade started at the Leon County Civic Center and proceeded down Jefferson Street to the Stadium. Floats, cars, bands and various groups marched down the street alive with color.

The entertainment consisted of comedian Jeff Foxworthy and Saturday Night regular Dennis Miller, The week of activities for Greeks came to a close as the top three Greek skits were performed and Alpha Delta Pi and Lambda Chi Alpha walked away with the honors. Other honors were awarded to pairings for top places in banner and float. The night ' s events put smiles on faces and created spirit for the game.

Every year around homecoming I hear about the race, but never get around to signing up, " Michele Clark said " I was glad I made the time this year to run it. Not only was I impressed with the organization of the race, but with the scenery that encompassed the run. " The annual Reservation Run was held prior to the game at 8 a.m. and began m the parking lot of the engineering school. Over a thousand people came out to run the 3.1 mile race that ended at the Reservation. The Mill Bakery and Eatery provided muffins to the participants and water and ice were given to the winded runners. The game started at 2 p.m. with an inspirational performance given by the Marching Chiefs. Senior football players and their parents were introduced from the field. The main event, the crowning of the Princess and Chief took place during half time. Sandi Leff and Abner Devallon Jr. were crowned the newest members of Florida State royalty. The game ended the weekend on a positive note with a victory over Middle Tennessee State.

In fact, the process took several weeks before the finalists were announced. First, potential candidates had to apply at the Student Alumni Foundation and pay a $ 1 5 entrance fee to become eligible to get on the court. Other eligibiUty requirements were: 2,5 GPA or higher, undergraduate status, completion of 90 credit hours or enrollment in hours that would take you over the 90 hour mark by semester ' s end; attendance at FSU for more than one year, enrollment in 12 hours; and not on the court previously. Once the applications were m, the interviewing phase of the selection process began. The Homecoming Selection Committee, made up of an alumni, faculty and students, helped reduce the number of applicants to ten. " There were over 100 people who applied to be on the court this year alone, " Sam Ambrose said. The committee put much emphasis on six factors when deciding who to choose to represent the university. The areas included: campus leadership, scholastic achievement, poise and conversational ability, general knowledge of the university, qualities which brought substantial credit and honor to the university, it ' s alumni, supporters and friends; and finally, quaUties which would enhance the ceremonial expectations of the homecoming events and bring appreciation and goodwill to the community and university. Once the top ten male and female candidates were selected by the committee, the job of choosing the new Chief and Princess fell into the hands of the students. Voting booths were set up all over campus, making it easier for students to vote. After student votes were counted, the top five male and female candidates were announced. No one was aware of his or her place until it was announced at POW WOW. Although everyone couldn ' t win, everyone got to feel like royalty for the weekend. The court was one of the main attractions during the homecoming parade, captured the audience ' s attention at POW WOW and were revered during the halftime show at the homecoming game. The process for selecting this prestigious court was very tedious and all candidates could pride themselves m the honor they held, being selected as the finest, to represent the university. »»•••• •••••«» r rincess Sandi Leff and Chief Abner Devallon Jr. make their way down the field to be officially crowned.

Phrases were chanted, signs made and opinions voiced. This day was a landmark as those actively involved and concerned about their educational system took a stand and walked to the Capitol to protest the projected budget cuts. The march started at the Civic Center at 8 a.m. The march was led by student government president Brian Philpot and student senate president Jennifer Tankersley. Megaphones were used to help encourage and inspire students as they made their way to the Capitol. Marchers carried a cofhn symbolizing the death of Florida ' s educational system, as well as waving banners and signs and shouting in unison, " no more cuts! " . Florida State stood to suffer a 7 million dollar loss with the cuts, which would result m fewer classes being offered, smaller majors becoming extinct and tuition increases once more. Students and faculty fed up with the situation felt that by forming a united bond they could show the government their true feelings. " I disagree with the budget cuts 1 hese supporters show that they are for the educaton budget cuts. A sinall group feU it was their duty to counter- protest and stand in support of Governor Chile ' s cuts to education funding. completely. With the cuts there will be fewer classes offered and Fm already having enough trouble getting m them as it is. I have to graduate. " senior psychology major Kristin Wendelburg said. Many students felt the same way. " If the budget cuts are as drastic as predicted, a lot of classes will be cut and valuable faculty could be let go or leave to go where the educational system is progressing rather than here , where it will be regressing. " Elyse McMullen said. In fact, some faculty were let go or decided to leave on their own. Many students voiced their concern and thought it was a shame that Florida State, now an established and highly regarded academic university, would have to face budget cuts that could turn the school into an institution not renowned for it ' s academic programs. Although the government seemed like the enemy, they really were looking for what was best for the state and for everyone. " ' With the recession, you hear ' cut, cut, cut ' all the time. However, education isn ' t the fat we need to cut. It ' s an investment in our future, " Educational Policy Director Lmkjarett said, " " We need (CONTINUED ON PAGE 20...) ■ Student Life - 19 m II iiiii? y w • •••»««) »ft« S«®« 9««« 9«« « ««« (. . .

However, with the problems facing the national economy, savings and loans, and the high unemployment rate, it becomes necessary to cut back everywhere, even education. " Though the march to the Capitol didn ' t stop the budget cuts, it helped voice the cry of students and faculty members state wide. " It was reassuring for me to see all of us together walking to the Capitol, " McMuUen said, " we showed that )»»•»» «»»«•««•«••••• we support each other and know what ' s going on.

You decided instead of making the hike from Diffenbaugh to the Stone building, you ' d take the bus. Only you were unaware of the ride ahead of you. The bus system served as an efficient and often entertaining means of transportation for students year round. A trip on the Garnet and Gold buses proved to never be the same ride twice. The bus service was designed to get students from one side of campus to the other quickly. Bus drivers found ways to entertain their riders m ways even they were unaware of. " There was this bus driver who listened to ' The Young and the Restless ' very loudly on the radio. I didn ' t really notice it until I heard the sound of a couple either making out or making love coming from the radio next to the driver ' s seat. " Joanna Sparkman said. Other students commented on bus drivers that frequently showed their humor. " The bus was so full that the bus couldn ' t make it up the hill coming out of the stadium. The driver made half of the students get off and go to the top of the hill, she said she ' d be there in a minute. As she drove by, she jokingly waved ' good-bye ' and finally stopped. " Chen Ratliff said. Most of the incidents that occurred on the bus weren ' t so funny at the time they happened; however, after thinking about them, they became quite humorous. " I was running late to an afternoon class. The bus driver was making a left onto Stadium Drive. Instead of continuing up Jefferson Street, he stopped the entire bus at the Jiffy Store to get a drink. Go hgure? " Amy Shinn said. " I was on a bus when the driver quit. He just stopped the bus and got off! " Jeff Beckles said. " It was 9 am and there was standing room only. We made it to the top of the hill at the Stadium intersection. When the light turned green, the bus driver hit the gas and the bus went coasting backwards. We were stuck for about hfteen minutes. " Darby Delsalle said. Although some of the bus incidents were funny on their own, some become humorous as a result of the students. " One time this bus I was on was following a biker very closely. Everyone started yelling out the bus windows, " Run! Run for your life! " as the bus driver kept picking up speed, " Stacy Anderson said. No matter if you were in a hurry or looking for an adventure, the bus service provided both. The quick wit and skill of the drivers and students helped make " another day on the bus " memorable.

You feel alone, but are you? Will you become the next statistic? Campus crime became a frightening reality on our campus. Many types of crime plagued the university including anything from disorderly conduct to sexual assault. Offense reports from the university police department have shown that so far this year over 600 complaints have been made. From the reported offenses, only 277 arrests had been made by the end of Oct., police records show. Campus crime became more prevalent than these reports indicated; this problem stemmed from the fact that people did not report many of the offenses committed. " If people don ' t report it, we can ' t do anything about it, " Sergeant Ronald McGlockton of the university police, said. He also said that many of the campus crimes involved minor thefts of things such as rings or books. More people have reported crimes over the past ten years. In 1 980 the police served about 11,000 people, but by 1990 the number had escalated to about 22,000. With the increase in the amount of crimes reported, greater emphasis was put on campus safety. Many brochures were trie Pugh escorts Marcy Kislia to Kellum Hall from the Union. Students could call the campus escort service anytime after dark until 1 a.m. to have a companion walk them home. made available with information about ways to protect students and were circulated around the campus. The police were asked to speak to students about safety m and out of their homes. Different informative and educational programs were also set up to make students aware and help them prevent campus crime. Some excellent programs that were made available included the Women ' s Safety Program, the Escort Service, residence hall security guards. Crisis Management, the Blue Light Trail and Blue Light Station to name a few. Two of the most used programs were the Blue Light Station Blue Light Trail and the Escort Service. The Blue Light Trail was set up along campus to help these students who are in need of police assistance immediately. These telephones with the blue lights above them were strategically placed on campus so that a student never loses sight of the next telephone . The university police department hoped that this program would help to improve response time to campus crime. Another popular service provided by the University for the safety of students has been the Escort Service. This service provided by Student Government in cooperation with the Department of Public Safety provided an added measure for (CONTINUED ON PAGE 26 ... ) Student Life -25 PINHKII ' IE (. . , CONTINUED FROM PAGE 25) students who needed it. The Escort Service operated seven days a week from 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. and students were encouraged to call if they needed someone to accompany them. Although these services were available, crime became a serious threat. Students began to take crime on and off campus seriously. " Safety is something we often take for granted. We should be careful, especially m these hrst years away from home to form sound safety habits, " freshman Doanyelle Conner said. Other students have learned from experience that campus crime is a serious matter. " The lesson I learned after being mugged was invaluable. Now, I ' m no longer naive and am constantly aware of my surroundings, " freshman Riki Altman said. Because of the prevalence of campus crime, people realized the necessity of crime prevention. Using the informative and educational programs along with the use of common sense has been a step forward toward the prevention of campus crime. Photo by Robert Parker r olice Officers E.

In September, the Bobby E. Leach Fitness Center opened for use. The $12.9 million facility was free to all enrolled university students and reduced price membership were available for faculty and staff. " This place is great. At home I would have to pay hundreds of dollars to join a gym like this and It wouldn ' t even have half the equipment that this place does. I ' m going to miss having a free gym when I graduate, " Mike Stephens, a graduating senior said. The facility was kept running by student Activities and Services fees (A S), which were included in tuition. The center provided something for almost every student ' s interests. With an Olympic size indoor swimming pool, seven raquetball courts, two squash courts, 12 exercycles, stairmasters, rowing machines, four different sets of weight machines, aerobics classes and an indoor track, visitors never had a problem finding something to do. " When we were planning the facility we visited similar centers at Auburn, Alabama, Georgia Tech and Florida to get the best combination of facilities for the students. We also laid out the center so that we could easily move and change equipment m order to keep up with students needs, " Paul Dirks, director of the Center said. Though It was not completed until 1991, the Center was m the works as early as 1980. Then Vice President for Student Affairs Bobby Leach was very athletically minded and saw the need for a fitness center on campus. He set the idea m motion and began to secure funding. The Leach Center not only provided students with a place to work out, but it also provided job openings for qualihed students. The Center had four professional staff, four clerical and administrative assistants, six maintenance and custodial staff with over 100 students serving as aerobics instructors, fitness instructors and counter staff. " Being able to work on campus is very convenient and I enjoy the bright atmosphere of the Leach Center, " Patty Saager said. Most students agreed that the Leach Center was a welcome addition to campus. " 1 love having a place that ' s so convenient to use that 1 can get a work out in while I ' m on campus instead of having to drive home and out to a gym and back home and then to campus again. It ' s a real time saver, " Sean deFord said. «S fAti 28 - Student Life V „ f % Pholo By Robert Parker L elta Tau Carlos Kelly and his partner work their upper arms and back.

Eimii ' icutiPiii; niiis [iiiini m What did Hare Chnsnas, Rio Joe ' s sunglasses, student political parties, blaring progressive music and preppies have m common? They could all be found bunched together m one place everyWednesday year round. That luminous place was the Union courtyard and within it, an aura of magic was created that attracted every ethnic, social and political group imaginable. The Union had not only historical importance but also an intangible importance that wasn ' t readily seen by the people who benefited most from it, the students. In the late 60 ' s and 70 ' s the Union was where the current Post Office is now. " Students used to socialize there a little but other than that they basically made little of the Union, " former student and head of maintenance Alto Collinsworth said. With the arrival of our present Union, there was much more for students to do than just socialize. With approximately 209,000 square feet, the New Union was anything but small. Centrally located, the rectangular courtyard had become known as the Student Union and was used every day as a place for students to gather. The Union offered a var iety of culture when It underwent a temporary change on Wednesdays. Workman set up tables for r aul Suhor shows Harald Kegelmann how his artwork is created. Vendors often set up demonstrations to draw attention to their work. Ti rl u 111 merchants to display music, clothes, crafts and other assorted goodies for sale. The action increased as waves of students poured through the brick courtyard and dispersed upon various exhibits, searching for bargains. The Union was a place to display talent, too. Beckie Chnstodal had a table m the courtyard every Wednesday with a display of personally hand crafted incense burners, key rings, various bits of peace paraphernalia, bumper stickers and cards which she sold to eager students. " Peace is popular, " she said. " It sells well with college students. " And that it did. Peace shirts, jewelry, and stickers accounted for a great portion of Beckie ' s sales. The money she earned went to pay next month ' s rent. " This beats a real job, " she said. Rio Joe thought the same thing. He exclaimed over some 1000 pairs of the newest sunglasses. The Union offered him a break from the regular working week. " I ' ve been selling shades for five years here in the Union and there is nothing like this place anywhere. The students here have great attitudes; they are honest, and friendly, much more so than other schools. " The Union was still more. It was a place where small businesses could visit for a day and interact with a younger generation. The students (CONTINUED ON PAGE 32...) - Student Life - 31 niiRiiiy (.. . CONTINUED FROM PAGE 31) benefited from having an opportunity to shop locally and the small businesses benefited by increased sales and a change of pace from the busy week. Wendy Halleck smiled easily as she welcomed students who were dazzled by her display of hair clips, earrings and other items which she had collected from some twelve different countries. Items from India, Guatemala, Africa, Bolivia, Thailand, the Indonesian Islands, China, Peru and Mexico could be purchased at her table m the Union. " I enjoy learning about other countries and I do this by bringing cultural things from other countries here to the Union Courtyard. The Union has tremendous energy due to young people, but yet it is laid back. Here I have an opportunity to meet other students that I might not have met. " There was something for everyone at the Union, but mostly bargains. And if you got tired of shopping or socializing you could purchase refreshments inexpensively there, too. If you searched and searched for something for that hard to shop for person and were unable to find it, you could go see Chris Dovalis. Chris had been selling ceramic FSU characters since 1985 m the Union. Her hand crafted characters of football players, nurses. lawyers, cheerleaders, fraternity and sorority figures could be personalized to your specification. " FSU is just a high class college with a positive atmosphere and I ' m glad I can be a part of It, " she said. When one looked at the Union, not all of Its worth was seen at once. Sure, it was a giant cash register. But it was also a place where true laissez-faire government practices came to life. The Union market was based on a free market with few restrictions. Students could display their own talents at the Union for a mere five dollars. The Union offered students an opportunity to do just about anything they could dream up. No one group dominated the union and not a single group was excluded. The union offered total democracy to all people present, alienating no one and putting no one individual or group above another. Freedom could sum up the Union; it was what united the widely different spectrum of individuals there. If you didn ' t visit the Union courtyard on Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., you had truly missed out on a learning experience that no professor could offer you m class. L olored bottles align this table and cause the union to look like a art show rather than a flea market. Artists brought many of their creation and shared them with those who stopped by the weekly Wednesday fair. 4 Students rummage through a stack of shirts to find the one they are looking for in their size.

The four of them hit it off; they talked and danced all night, until Sally said she had a headache and wanted to go home. Steve, who lived right across the street, invited the group over to his apartment where he could get Sally some aspirin and they could all relax. Steve brought Sally the aspirin she needed and coaxed Carol into joining him m his room. They went into his room and began to kiss. Soon after, he held both her hands above her head, covering her mouth with his arms. Steve pmned her legs down with his and with one arm free proceeded to rape her. Meanwhile, her friend Sally was in the other room laughing and enjoying herself, not knowing what was happening m the other room. Carol had been very outgoing, fun- loving, and had many friends. The consequences of the rape were that she became very quiet, Uked to stay home and feared men. Carol went away to begin her freshmen year of college at the end of the month. College was very rough for her and in order to socialize, she had to drink. Concentrating on school was impossible; she had a breakdown and had to return home after one semester. Carol, recently a senior at Florida State, had devoted her time to studying and food. She had gained approximately thirty pounds and had not been able to date or have an intimate relationship since the incident occurred in 1987. Carol finally sought counseling at the Health Center on campus. This photo illustration depicts the frightening circum- stances that some women face when they are with a person they know little or nothing about. Date rape has become a growing concern on campuses around the country. Although these names are hctitious, the stor) ' is true. This case was not reported to the police. Carol did not seek counseling immediately following the rape. Alcohol was involved, and the rapist was someone the victim never expected. The dehnition of rape from the book " Sexual Assault on Campus: What Colleges Can Do, " said " Rape is forced sexual intercourse that is perpetrated against the will of the victim. The type of force employed may involve physical violence, coercion, or the threat of harm to the victim. " Rape is an act of aggression, violence, and power. This act of violence occurs all over the world; however, it has been overwhelmingly common on college campuses. Among college students, rape often occurred in a social situation with which the victim was unfamiliar. Freshmen were especially vulnerable withm their hrst month at college. In a survey from Auburn University, one m two college women reported being the victim of some form of sexual aggression. One in four women were victims of rape or attempted rape. Eighty-four percent of rapist were dating partners or acquaintances. The same survey found that one m four college men admitted having used sexual aggression with women. Research by Dr. Barry Burkhart and others studying the problem of rape suggests that more than one-quarter of college-age women have been the victim ' s of rape or attempted rape (Burkhart and Stanton, 1985). On the Florida State University campus, that meant nearly 4,000 women were potentially in need of services related to sexual battery. " (CONTINUED ON PAGE 36...) Student Life - 35 m II II 1 1: y p [ iiiiii:Ki)i i;BccoiiiEsi;iiiii;i:Rn ( . . . CONTINUED FROM PAGE 35) A recent scieniific study of acquaintance rape on 32 college campuses conducted by Ms. magazine and psychologist Mary P. Koss showed that sigmftcant numbers of women are raped on dates or by acquaintances, although most victims never report their attackers. Ms. survey statistics: 1 in 4 women surveyed were victims of rape or attempted rape, 84% of those raped knew their attacker and 57% of the rapes happened on dates. Those hgures make acquaintance rape and date rape more common than left handedness, heart attacks or alcoholism. " Relations among all persons should be characterized by mutual respect and equality. Sexism, sexual harassment and sexual coercion of any sort are wrong and constitute a violation of fundamental moral requirements and state law. Minimally responsible behavior required that no one take sexual advantage of another, " said the values and morals at Florida State University. Organizations at Florida State took rape very seriously and did everything possible to educate victims m order to prevent rape from occurring again. To help prevent rape the university had a topic called Handle with Care at orientation, which informed the students of the dangers on college campus. Residence Assistants gave talks m dorms. An escort service and emergency polls were available on campus. Many sources of help to victims were offered on campus. It becomes very important to get help. The victim was encouraged to contact a friend or someone for emotional support, and to seek medical and counseling assistance at once. The initial test, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement rape test, needed to be taken off campus at the Sexual Assault Rape Crisis Center. The police took a report; however, the victim did not have to press charges. Police did not try to pressure and respected the victims wishes. The rest of the medical needs could be helped at the student health center. For counseling assistance, victims contacted the Counseling, Sexual Assault Center, Ofhce of Women ' s Concerns or call the Crisis Hotline. For legal assistance, they could contact the campus police , public safety office , campus legal aid ofhce or the city police department. " The Ofhce of Women ' s Concerns take very seriously their responsibility to respond to the attempt to decrease incidents of rape and other types of sexual violence on the Florida State University campus. You can help us address these important issues by reporting incidents to our ofhce and informing us of your concerns, " said a member of Women ' s Concern Staff. Every year the hrst week of October the Women ' s Center held a Stop Rape Week. The week informed women when and how rape occured and how prevent it. The newest group that supported Stop Rape ' Week was a student action advocacy group - Stop Rape ASAP (Association of Students for Action and Prevention). Also, there were support groups which signed up participants for the Stop Rape Week activities. The victim did not have to give her name. Dr. Jill Ricke was the therapist who attended the group meetings. 1 his dramatization depicts the devastation one feels after being date raped. Women on campuses all over the nation have experienced devastation and pain after being physically and emotionally violated by men that they knew or dated. I ' l i i; I, L !

At the end of each semester, it never seemed to give back as much as it had taken. " It " was the University Bookstore doing business as usual m the Union. However, July 1 marked a new beginning for the bookstore. On that date, Follett College Stores opened for their hrst day of business on campus. The university leased its only bookstore to the private company headquartered m Chicago. The university became one more link in their chain of over 400 college and university bookstores. " Our main goal is to serve the faculty and students. They are our number one customers and our number one priority, " bookstore manager Michael Duffy said. One of the most noticeable changes m the bookstore ' s operation was the use of extra credit dollars and bonus bucks. For every $20 worth of merchandise a student purchased, he or she received a one dollar extra credit dollar good for one dollar off anything in the store on any day. In addition, for every $10 worth of textbooks a student sold back, he or she received a bonus buck to be used like an extra credit dollar. " The bucks are a neat idea. It ' s a nice change to get ' money ' back when you have to spend so much on textbooks, " senior Allison Darby said. " This IS a program that has worked well m our other stores, and it gets the students back into the store, " Duffy said. Bill ' s Bookstore and Bill ' s II stood on the edge of campus as the University Bookstore ' s only competition m textbook sales. Like any good business, " we want as much business as we can get, " Duffy said. An important aspect of FoUett ' s competition with Bill ' s and Bill ' s II was to get all of the textbook adoptions, or orders from the faculty . Follett hoped that incentives like the extra credit dollar and bonus buck programs along with periodic sales would also prevent customer losses to Bill ' s. Under Follett, the University Bookstore received a new lease on life and students and faculty saw an increased emphasis on customer service. " The changes make a difference, make the store more appealing. Bigger selections and improved service will keep me coming back, " junior Kevin Atchley said. % Ann Rix, a Bill ' s Bookstore employee, helps Dana Rich find a book she needs for one of her classes.

But what about the heritage and tradition that would be lost once the old relics were converted to modern day standards? Several special people have helped upgrade the condition of several well-known and thought of buildings around campus, helping create modern structures that capture the nostalgic feeling that has been a presence on the university grounds since it first opened its doors. " No particular year is chosen to start a project, " John Schanbacher, project manager of the Jennie Murphee Dodd Hall renovations, said, " we just see the need for building improvement and go from there. " In fact, the Jennie Murphee renovations started in 1985 as an air-condition project. However, after further insight, the Board of Regents felt complete renovations should include addressing issues of handicap access, hre code, safety improvements and air conditioning. Federal loans along with university funding have aided the project since June 1986. To keep the familiar and traditional look of the dorm, the exterior brick would be left as well as the high ceilings and moldings inside. " Leaving the exterior brick is intentional, it ' s to help keep the building ' s appearance of being old. Really, it would be easier to get rid of the brick and start from scratch, " Schanbacher said. The completion of the dorm. Phase I in the dorms campus- wide, was scheduled for June 1993. The upgrading of the building would lead to an increase in costs for students to live there, but no one would know for sure how much of an increase would be implemented until the building was completed. When Jennie Murphee was finished, Bryan, Reynolds, Broward and Gilchrist would be ready for renovations. " We can only renovate a take a lot of time. Plus you can only reduce on-campus housing so much a year, and by closing a dorm down to renovate it, you are emptying several hundred spaces for students to live, " Schanbacher said. Dodd Hall was also under construction. The project entailed the renovation and expansion of the existing building. The occupants, including the undergraduate studies department, were moved to temporary housing m buildings west of Woodwara Avenue. According to maintenance department support, " This project also expands Dodd Hall by constructing a 1 14 seat auditorium at the south edge of the site to tie m functionally with the existing Mildred and Claude Pepper Library. " Complete renovations and expansion are scheduled to be done November 1992. The stadium also went under construction following football season. " The stadium is out-dated. There ' s not enough seats, and students are the ones that suffer, " senior Michelle Doherty said, " The new facility will be great. 1 only wish I ' d be here to see it completed. " The multi-million dollar project was lead by Larry Reubm and was expected to be completed in several phases. The completion of the facility would include classrooms, offices, a 10,500 seat (CONTINUED ON PAGE 42. . .) - Student Life - 41 REyittllllllS n PI Pin REPpniippii (. . . CONTINUED FROM PAGE 41) expansion of Doak Campbell Stadium and 2,000 parking spaces. The construction at the stadium led to one problem, loss of student parking spaces. Three hundred spaces were taken with Phase I of the project. The school recognized the problem and alleviated it almost simultaneously. " Most students don ' t realize there is more parking now than before, " Angela Gaskm of parking services said, " Across the street from where the bus station is now located (south side of the stadium) 700 parking spaces have been added. With the loss of the 300 from the stadium construction that still leaves an additional 400 spaces for students. " Not only were buildings vital for students needs renovated, but others that served the students wants. The Sweet Shop was one of two well-known establishments that underwent a makeover. " It had the reputation of a greasy- spoon convenient store. I saw the need for a change so we decided to go ahead and renovate it, " owner Steve Sandler said. Sandler, a 73 graduate of FSU owned the Azalea restaurant on Apalachee Parkway five years prior to ov mg the Sweet Shop. The previous owner of the Sweet Shop used to be a regular at the Azalea and told Sandler of the building ' s vacancy. " I jumped at the chance to ovvTi the Sweet Shop as soon as it opened. There was a strong attachment there for me. 1 use to hang out and eat at the Sweet Shop all through college, and my brother use to own The Sun, a restaurant that later turned into the Phyrst, " Sandler said. The strong attachment he had led to converting the restaurant back into a cafeteria-style establishment. " We went to a cafeteria-style for the students ' convenience, " Sandler said, " We have a full-service breakfast, served on china, have Haagen Daz, a gameroom and hope to eventually serve beer and wine. " Pictures from the state archives, from the turn of the century to the present, have been hung m the restaurant and the $2.22 breakfast special was recreated by one of Sandler ' s friends and placed on the ceiling. " The students, faculty and staff have responded m a terrific way. I can ' t wait for the new dorm to be completed so more students and their friends can come and experience some of the FSU nostalgia, " Sandler said. Another well-known establishment that underwent reconstruction was the Mecca. Known as the " Good Time Tradition " since 1949, the Mecca felt it was time for a change. " We were seen as a greasy spoon and wanted to upgrade our appearance, " Andrew Meek said. Now, fully converted, the restaurant is full-service, where it use to be cafeteria style. " We saw a need for real value-priced quality food on campus that could serve as an alternative to SAGA and Chili ' s for students, " Meek said. The Mecca still has it ' s Greek section; it has now been moved to the back. It also now ser ' es alcohol. " We focus on the establishment as a restaurant with the complements of drinking. We don ' t want to be known as a bar, " Meek said. With the changes m these two great establishments back, better than ever, students once more have a place to hangout that IS unique to the university. The " makeover " of the campus was done to improve appearance, safety and student morale. " When the students feel good about their school, they pass the word on, " Tom Pitcock said, " You have to concern yourself with appearance and I can say I ' m more than pleased.

Sounds frustrating? It was, and with all the construction going on around campus, parking became more of a problem then in years past. There appeared to be possible relief m sight with the completion of a proposed parking garage, but until then, what was a student to do? The university attempted to resolve this problem for several years to no avail. " The school IS trying to secure funding for a parking garage, " Angela Gaskm for parking services said, " once the money is accounted for the garage project will be started. " Although it seemed that student spaces were lost due to construction, the opposite was true. " A new parking lot opened across from the south side of the stadium that had 700 spaces, " Gaskin said, " the stadium construction took away 300 spaces, but with the new lot there are still 400 additional spaces for students to park. " Even with the additional spaces on campus, parking was still not an easy thing. " I ' ve never been anywhere where there have been so many people with so few spaces, " Darin Meyer, a senior, said, " People are out for blood. They ' re like vultures lurking for a space. Circling and circling, coming m for the kill. " The parking war didn ' t only involve finding a space, but the right space. Different lots accessed various people at different times. Freshmen (with less than 30 hours) were only allowed to park at the stadium or in white spaces at certain times. Students with " ' W " decals could park m metered spaces after 4:30 p.m. during the week. Although the battle seemed won after a space was found, ticketing came into the picture. " For the fiscal year, (starting July of 1990 and ending June 1991) 67,137 citations were issued, " Gaskin said. ' With approximately 30,000 students at the university, that averaged to a little over two tickets per student. It must be kept m mind though, that tickets were issued to everyone - faculty, students and visitors. However, Gaskin pointed out that the number of citations issued was down from previous years. " I ' m not sure if students are parking more carefully or using alternate forms of transportation, whatever it is, it seems to be working, " Gaskin said. Often students questioned where the money from parking tickets went. " The revenue collected from citations issued went back to parking and no where else, " Gaskin said, " the money funds maintenance to the lots, employee salaries and benefits, helps buy new equipment and pay off leases the university has on certain - Student Life - 45 P J lUU nuiwi ninu u niyin lots. There is also a scholars hip fund that is set up each year for $12,000 that comes from parking. " With the problem of finding spaces accompanied by the possibiUty of getting tickets students turned to alternative means of transportation to get to campus. Ridmg bikes, carpoolmg and public transportation became more popular. The Civic Center even " cut a deal " for students and charged them $1 a day to park there. " We have always had a reduced rate for students, " Roger Englert, for the Civic Center, said, " we have to charge money, it brings m revenue for us; however, we realize students don ' t have much money and we try to help them out. " The reduced rate, convenient location (for students who had classes on the east side of campus) and friendly parking attendant, James Corrick, helped make the Civic Center a problem-free place for students to park. " I enjoy meeting people and the students help keep me on my toes, " Corrick, a retired salesman, said, " I just wish the university would concentrate more on building parking lots. " The Civic Center had adequate parking for students and non-students alike, however, when Civic Center functions were going on, the parking availabUity became small or obsolete. " Usually the biggest shows that are put on are the circus and the food show, " Corrick said, " a lot of people come to see both and parking becomes limited. " Although parking lessened certain days, the civic center still proved to be an ample alternative for people to park on campus. When the university secured funding, a parking garage would be built. The Civic Center was also m the process of possibly building a hotel and theater with a parking facility. With the completion of these projects, the student parking problem might have been solved, but until then the war was on, and an empty space was fair game .

We were all after the perfect schedule. There were tests in the ARC, end- less notes, ftlms, exams and preparation for the CLAST. Assignments and projects began to hll our days and nights, essays, presentations, research projects and group work be- came a part of our daily routine. The library and study rooms became a second home to us. But the key to our success was all in our approach to learn- ing.

Francis Ware Eppes came from a long line of very successful Eppes- a tradition started m England. For at least ten generations, an Eppes held some type of political office. One of the most famous of his ancestors was Thomas Jefferson, Francis Eppes ' grandfather. In 1827, twenty-five-year-old Francis Ware Eppes gathered the slaves his grandfather sold him, loaded a wagon and left his home and security for the new state of Florida. Eppes settled m Tallahassee with his wife and six children m a log cabin he built with his own hands. In the following years, he was widowed, remarried to Susan Ware and became mayor of Tallahassee. Also among Eppes ' achievements was his six year appointment as Justice of the Peace. During these 25 years he also helped to build and establish St. John ' s Episcopal Church and served as vestryman, lay-reader, and secretary to the Florida Episcopal Diocese. During this quarter of a century, he remained mayor and successfully rid Tallahassee of open gambling, hghting and public profanity. But Eppes ' most driving cause was education. As mayor, he very much wanted children throughout Florida to be educated. In his pursuit to do this he served as president of the Board of Education. But that was not enough. Eppes started making offers to the Florida legislative to build a seminary in Tallahassee. The other options for location were Marianna and Qumcy. While the legislature was trying to decide, a school for boys was opened in Leon County and Eppes offered that as the new seminary. After seven years of campaigning, Tallahassee had its seminary. Although very influential in bringing the seminary to Tallahassee, Eppes declined an appointment as its first president. He did, however, serve several terms on its governing board. The year 1872 found Francis Ware Eppes poor after selling his land to the Confederates and finding out that the money he received for that land was worthless. The seminary offered Eppes the presidency and a liberal salary. Once again, Eppes declined. Francis Ware Eppes left what he called " the gardenspot of the world " to begin again in Orlando. His legacy continued with his son, Nicholas Ware Eppes, who also served as president of the Board of Education. Francis Eppes ' descendants remained an integral part of the Tallahassee community.

Sliger Keeps an Active Role As President of Florida State for fourteen years, Dr. Bernard F. Sliger was very influential m enlarging the university. Engineering was returned to the university ' s curriculum and the F.S.U. F.A.M.U. College of Engineering was moved to a newly constructed building. He emphasized the improvement of the library holdings and contributed to the enrollment of the university, which stood at an all-time high. The enrollment of the university ' s overseas program expanded as well . Funding increased for the university endowment as well as the overall budget. Research facilities were better equipped and grew with the addition of the Computing Center, located m the Bernard F. Sliger Building. The athletic program was accepted into the Adantic Coast Conference and football, basketball and other sports achieved national ranking. After Sliger retired m August, Dr. Dale Lick from the University of Maine took over as University President. Sliger, however, remained active m the community and in academics at Florida State. Although he was often out of town, Sliger found time to serve on the Charter ConsoUdation Commission to assist in deciding whether or not Leon county and the city of Tallahassee should consolidate. Sliger was also involved with the Nature Conservancy. Dur ing the spring he was active m consulting with the Louisiana University System. Sliger also taught an economics course at the University of New Orleans.

Lick University President Joe H. Hiett Assistant to the President 56 - Academics Nesv Presidential URSurrs J2 What do you think set you apart from the other candidates for the university presidency? A. I think probably the most important, given the way people were looking at the position, was that I had a good amount of successful presidential experience elsewhere. 1 remember the chancellor making a comment when he announced me as the new president of Flonda State. He commented about my getting up early m the morning, and said that most importantly, not that he gets up early m the morning and works hard, but that when he gets up a hve o ' clock he knows what a president is supposed to do and he goes and does it. My successful experience as a president was probably the deciding factor. I was at the University of Maine for five years and spent eight years at Georgia Southern poor to that. In higher education right now, the average presidency of an institution like this one is 3 . 5 years. Someone who has been m three presidencies, as I now have, makes me one of only a few m the country, who have been m presidencies thirteen or fourteen years. At Maine, we moved the institution fLyiiterview wdth Dr. Dale Lick Reveals His New Goals from an institution ot the 60 " s and 70 s into the 90 ' s. Do we have somebody who can move to that future? For some reason, people thought maybe I could. Q. You mentioned fund-raising being a major goal, what major goals and priorities do you have for Florida State? A. The fundamental goal is this. I would like to see Florida State become a model institution for how it serves the people of Flonda and the state of Flonda. You can ' t be that model institution unless you ' re really a nationally , and m some senses, an internationally competitive university. It means that you ' ve got to have an excellent undergraduate program because that ' s still the bulk of our operation. Teaching is still number one , and our undergraduate population vvdll always be 75-80 percent of our total operation m temis of our teaching. Our graduate students v ill be more like 20-25 percent. It means that we must also be a major ser ace university. If you look at it more from a quantitative point of iew, size-wise we are among the top fifty institutions in the countr) ' . In terms of total university quality BY DANA COMFORT Freddie L. Groomes Assistant to the President for Human Resources Peter P. Garretson Assistant to the President tor hitemationaJ Programs W. Gerry Gilmer Assistant to the President for University Relations Academics - 57 NEW PRESIDENTIAL PURSUITS (CONTINUED) measurements, we are somewhere between fifty and one hundred. I think we can move up into the 25 to 50 range dunng this decade. Where we ' d like to be is up in at least the top 25 public institutions m America. If we ' re going to be among the top 25 or 50 publics, we have got to do something with the area of endowment. For example, the average ACC school is $242 million, versus our $42 million. If we are thinking of ourselves as the typical ACC institution, we ' ve got a big hole. That ' s why we are planning a major capital campaign to go after those dollars that will bring us more scholarship money, higher quality students, more of the best faculty, facilities, enrichment programs, library resources, equipment, all those kinds of things. To get us m the top one hundred would take another 100 million dollars. The potential is clearly there. We have an outstanding faculty and we ' re doing great m grants and contracts. We ' re coming along very fine. We have a very good student body, with the average SAT score of entenng freshman of about 1 1 00 and a 3 . 5 high school grade point average. So that ' s a good , solid, creative and bnght student body. What we need is not just a good student body m general , but a few more at the top , in that 1 300 and above SAT range. The growth m Flonda means that over the next 10-12 years there ' ll be a 50 percent increase of the number of kids m the system so were going to have to enroll something close to our fair share ot that. We have much we have to do, like expansion of the campus area for more space. Q. What do you think our role in collegiate ACC sports can contribute to academics? A. Joining the ACC has been one of the most important factors to the advancement of Florida State. I hate saying that because that is not where values are, but I am a very practical person. It is reality because people gam their perceptions by what they see and hear and feel. If you look at us, for example, we have been on national television since last August. So, now what are people beginning to think about Florida State University? High quality, on television. ..they must be an important university. That ' s the kind of positive feeling that there is now here, but there ' s a connectedness to it, though, that is cntical. And that is, you ' ve got to do it nght. You ' ve got to do it fair. You can ' t cut comers. Take the University of Florida, they ' ve been hurt some. Georgia got hurt, SMU got hurt. Whereas, we have done it properly. People say ' What do you think about Bobby Bowden? " He ' s a wonderful person. He does It right. I ' d love to have my son or daughter working with him. That is the kind of perception we now have. All of that makes people want to come. Athletics will play an important part. And will keep us really m the mmds of people, up high. ' We needed a mamage of us and some of the best schools of the southeast, like the NC, the Tech ' s, the Dukes. We needed the ACC and the athletic thing was what got us m. And we were good enough academically, so that didn ' t detract Another way is fund-raising, we have a lot of people who give major dollars to athletics for our booster organization. But interestingly enough, 60 percent of those people give major dollars to the academic program. Most people say no there ' s no relauonship, but there is. There ' s a major relationship. Our major athletic supports are also major academic supporters. They give to our foundation. That ' s one of the reasons athletics is very important to our university. Q: What were some of your immediate concerns when you arrived here, aside from the fund-raising. A: Transition. We will see more change dunng the next 10 years than we ' ve seen m the last 40 years. So if you took all the change of the last 40 years and squeezed it into the next ten it gives you a sense of the intensity of the change. It means you have to come m and deal with the present structure, and our stmcture isn ' t quite the way it should be. You ' ve got to come m and deal with people, and you probably don ' t have all the people m the right places. You ' ve got to deal with the ambiance of the campus. The psychology of the campus. A university is a major element of stability, but if you don ' t move that stability you ' re going to be out of date. How do you get a major fund- raising effort off the ground. We ' ve never had a major fund-raising effort at Florida State, and we ' ve got to have an effort that may be 150-200 million dollars. That ' s a big, big step, so they ' re all of those kinds of things and you ' re supposed to be the one quarterbacking it and calling the shots. And that ' s why that experience I talked about before is so important. And so you ' re in a better position to think it through and see where you should be going. If you ' re not planning for facilities 10 years from now you ' re not going to gel them. You ' ve got plan for them now so thai they ' re there when you need them 10 years from now. It really is an exciting job, it an almost all consuming job. I ' m busier now than 1 hope to be. But my life is always busy as a president, it always has been. I guess I must enjoy u because I keep doing it. And I have a very supportive family. My wife gets involved in my activities extensively, whether its going to a concert , or going to a basketball tournament or meeting with a legislative group over dinner, she becomes part of my involvement so we get to spend time together, fortunately, even while I ' m working. I ' d like to stay here, I think presidents need to stay for at least five years, but probably not more than 10 years. It ' s probably time for a change, and I think that there ' s a thing of having the right person at the nght time. President Sliger, I think, was the nght person through a certain phase of FSU and I think maybe Dale Lick will be the right person for another phase of Flonda State. I ' d like to close out my career here with maybe, eight or ten very dynamic years of leadership for Flonda State and still be young enough to go off and do something totally different.

Some students even found it interesting and a learning experience. " It was in an experiment in which they showed a court case and then people were split up into groups of four to decide what should happen to the criminal.

As a non-proht organization, the athletic department was able to donate annually to help students receive a better education. The money was used to expand the summer school program and ease the budget cuts imposed on the library. Officials feared summer school classes would be cut by one-third due to past reductions m the budget. However, the money donated meant eighty percent of the classes would be offered, rather than the expected 65 percent. Now students would be able to take the classes needed m order to graduate or get caught up. The other $400, 000 donated to the university was used to help the library keep up-to-date with current books and information needed on the collegiate level. In 1991, the library suffered a one million dollar budget cut. That cut was curbed by the $300,000 donation athletics made that year.

World War I was the hrst war m history m which the power of publicity to mobilize opinion played such an important role. President Wilson set up the CPI to mobilize public opinion to support the war and his peace aims. The committee was highly successful and led to the books Words that Won the War and How We Advertised America .

Bernays, also the author of The Engin eering of Consent (1955). earned his honorary Doctorate from Boston University. During his discussion, he explained what he went through to achieve certain goals, Bernays was a firm believer in solid research before decision making. ' ' Formerly, leadership was dependent on hunch and insight. Today leadership is dependent on the feedback or interpreting of research, " Bernays said. Bernays illustrated this process with an example. Prohibition under President Roosevelt prohibited hard liquor and beer from being sold in grocery stores. Bernays conducted a study at the University of Iowa that helped him save the beer industry. He separated beer from hard liquor by calling it the beverage of moderation. Knowing that tradition is one way to change attitude, Bernays ' study showed that many of our American Revolutionary heroes enjoyed beer For example Martha and George Washington enjoyed chocolate beer cake. Edward Bernays is escorted by students enrolled in the public relations track. PR students had the opportunity to meet and question Bernays during his visit. Samuel Adams drank a glass of beer every night before bed. " Do you not agree with us that with the American tradition as exemplihed by the conduct of Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Martha Washington toward beer, the present action, not permitting beer, the beverage of moderation, to be sold m grocery stores should be repealed? " Bernays said. Not surprisingly, legislatures changed the law based on the tradition established m the study Bernays had conducted at the University of Iowa. Within two years of the study, all 50 states repealed the law. Bernays believed that the absence of licensing public relations practitioners was a major factor keeping the field from achieving true status as a profession. He argued that licensing shoul d be done to protect society as well as to advance the cause of professionalism in public relations. Bernays formally retired in 1962 but had continued his role as an advocate and critic for more than twenty-two years. Photo by Jason Burke Photo by FSU Photo Lab Evelyn T.

The program was only the fourth in the nation to receive such accreditation. The qualihcations, requirements and process of selection for such an esteemed certificate were very involved. Graduates from the program who currently worked m the field were interviewed along with faculty, staff and students m order to assess the program. Certain requirements must have been filled by the program in order to receive CEPR standing. An introduction course to public relations as well as technical training and classses is cases and campaigning were necessary for the program to be accredited. Research and internships were also a determining factor. " We received a glowing recommendation, " Dr. Jay Rayburn, professor of public relations, said. The program was also recognized by the Public Relations Society of America. PRSA even recommended graduates of this program for employment m large p ublic relations firms across the country. " I feel very fortunate to be m such an elite program.

Housewright has been an integral part of making music what it is today. His studies, explorations and openness about music and Its importance have given the University an appreciation of music and its place in the world. It all began when he literally flipped a com with his twin brother to see who would enter what major. His brother went into the sciences while Wiley Housewright entered the musical world. He studied first at the University of North Texas where he earned his undergraduate degree. Housewright then earned a master ' s degree from Columbia University and a doctorate from New York University. He went on to teach in public schools in Texas and New York prior to coming to Tallahassee. During his thirty-three years at the University he worked as a professor of music and conductor of the University Singers. He was appointed dean of the School of Music in 1 966. Among his many achievements, Housewright was chosen SIC Professor ' s Novel Nominated for Pulitzer the university ' s Distinguished Professor by faculty colleagues m 1961. Housewr ight served as President of the Music Educators National Conference in 1968-70. He was a well-knovvn lecturer and traveled throughout the United States, Korea, the Soviet Union, China and England. As well as participating m many organizations, he also collaborated with Karl Ernst and Rose Mane Grentzer to produce the Birchard Music Series, a series of six textbooks published in 1961. Housewright was a member of Pi Kappa Lambda, the American Musicology Society, the International Society for Music Education and the Florida Gold Key Society among various other organizations. After retirement from the University m 1980 he was honored when the Music School North was renamed " Wiley L. Housewright Music Building. " He was surprised, but " ecstatic " when he was told the honor was his. " I thought It was absolutely wonderful, having my name continued. " In 1980 he had also begun devoting his time to research for a book on the histor) ' of music and dance m Florida. He traveled to BY KRISTIN HUCKABAY Bob McCloud Director of Financial Aid Paula L. Barbour Honors and Scholars Program - Academics - 73 MAKING HISTORY (CONTINUED) almost all of the county libraries m Florida and also overseas to London. His research led to interesting discoveries of rare maps and much information that had been overlooked by other music historians. He also found letters from a military musician and soldier to his sisters during the Civil War. The result of his ten year search for information on the history of music and dance in Florida was a critically acclaimed book called A History oj Music and Dance in Florida, 1565-1865. It was published m 1991 by the University of Alabama Press and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. The book began with a look at the Indians and the many influences of the French, Spanish, British and Americans on them. It ended with the important part that music played m one man ' s life during the Civil War. The book was filled with many stories that give substance to the facts presented. " His love of music and his interest in its origins make this book a real success, " student Heather Schroeder said. Not only was his book loved by many at the university, but also from around the state. One such admirer was Jean Parker Waterbury of St. Augustine, Florida, who in a letter to Dr. Housewright said, " the information streams out from the pages, to be caught by any pleased reader... " Dr. Housewright was a lover of music, an advocate for education, a respected lecturer and a loved member of the musical society. He was respected for his contributions to the music world and rightfully so because no where else could there be found a more respected and versatile music lover.

" ...it ' s a shame that more students don ' t know about the clinic and the services it provides, " Dr. Haas, Chairman of the Audiology Department, said. The Center offered a variety of services for students in need. Speech and hearing impairments were a main concern for the doctors and trainees working at the rehab center. Although only therapy and rehabilitation were available at the clinic, tutoring and interpreters were available to assist in classroom settings. endel Clinic Provides Therapy and Rehab The interpreting came into play with the hearing impaired. Sign language was taught at the university as a " foreign language. " This was so because one had to not only learn signing to communicate with the deaf, but their culture as well, according to Dana Crowley, who taught sign classes. Crowley was instrumental m developing computer programs to assist those with impairments. Helping those that were autistic or the victims of accidents was another form of rehab offered. Many, after sustaining head injuries in accidents, relied on the programs at the Clinic to " releam " speech and hearing. Although the information that was provided to students was limited, the Audiology and Speech Pathology departments worked to correct the misconception surrounding the clmic.

Beginning m 1953, both the army and air force branches were offered. " The mam objective of the program has been to commission the future leadership of the United States Army, " recruiting officer Captain George Suarez said. ROTC was a college-elective program that provided students with both an education and the hands-on training to turn them Cfull- time students) into ofhcers. After graduation, students not only received their diplomas, but were commissioned as second lieutenants and to serve for up to eight years, either full- time m the U.S. Army Reserve or a combination. " I ended up a criminology major, but when I started off m ROTC as a freshman 1 wasn ' t really sure of what 1 was doing. Things cleared up for me my sophomore year and I was awarded a two year scholarship. 1 asked to be placed m intelligence and I received my assignment in military police. I ' d like to go to law school and be a lawyer m the army, " senior Lisa Cunningham said. mv an ir Force Ai ROTC Provides Hands-On Training Suarez believed that the philosophy is what made the university program here different. " The philosophy of Lieutenant Colonel Joseph W. Miller is what has made the difference here. He believed that along with the leadership the importance lied in the assistance given to the students obtaining their bachelor ' s degree. " We were one of the best classes in the nation at Ft. Lewis. The training here was excellent and last year my class concentrated on making the next class just as good, " Cunningham said. Cutbacks m the recent years did not affect the program. This good fortune allowed the program to continue the awarding of many scholarships to its cadets. The program had a forty percent retention rate and a majority of the graduating students were scholarship students. There were a variety of scholarships awarded on a one, two, or three year basis and the decision was based on merit and outstanding scholarship. " In our class eighty percent was awarded active duty and twenty percent was awarded reserve duty.

The air force branch also included two and four year programs as well. Between the cadets ' sophomore and junior years they were sent to field training. Field training was basic training where cadets were exposed to drills, ceremonies and military etiquette. This was held at various active air force bases all over the continental United States. " The program has objectively recruited high school students and college students. We ' ve trained them and commissioned them to be officers, " Cadet Colonel Mike " Wallace, Corp Commander, said. Like the army branch, the air torce branch was basically unaffected by the government ' s cutbacks. " Like the fraternities and sororities we also had things like the program sales at football games and car washes to raise extra money, " Wallace said. The retention rate was much lower in this branch. In a class that began with sixty-two cadets only twelve graduated. There was a high drop out rate although the scholarship opportunities were very similar to those that the army offered. In the air force branch there was a high percentage of women m technical slots. There were two women m meteorology, three involved in computer engineering, and three in nursing. The program on campus was very standardized and was regimented nationally. " I have visited the academy and the mam difference between what we do here and what they do is that what we do all day on Tuesdays and Wednesday nights, they do all the time. We have become more structural and the sophomores live m what IS close to a basic training environment, " freshman Nick Hirkman said. " I like the program because of the job security it has given me. The benefits are amazing. It ' s just so hard to find a job after graduation these days, " said Hirkman " Someone must have a calling to be a part of this. There is not a lot of mone ' involved and a person must feel ver - patriotically toward their country.

What motive do they have? Many women are conscious of their appearance, so naturally they like to buy clothes that make them look their very best. Professors Ronald Goldsmith, Elizabeth Goldsmith and Jeanne Heitmeyer conducted a survey that evaluated womens ' buying habits. The results suggested that projecting an image of success was a strong motive for women when they chose what clothes to wear. Many students are not very concerned with their clothing appearance when it comes to going to a day of classes. " 1 like to go to class m clothes that are very comfortable, " Leigh Barb said. The survey also showed that the more educated the woman was, the more concerned she was with her appearance. Women who viewed being well dressed as highly important spent more money and urvey Showed Motive for Clothes Buying Habits time looking for clothes, read fashion magazines frequently and shopped more often than women who did not think clothing appearance was as important. The survey reported that women who were most fashion-conscious expressed social values such as being well respected, portraying an image of accomplishment, having fun and enjoying life. Women did not consider values such as sense of belonging, self-fulfillment and security as much. Some female students around campus were picky about what they wore. " 1 wear clothing that hts my personality and I also try to pick garments that will compliment my hgure, " Robin Wise said. It appeared that women buy new clothes more as a symbol of success. It was no surprise that women who thought being well dressed was important spent more time shopping for their clothes.

They laughed and discussed plans like a large family. Before 1981, there were no language requirements tor foreign students. They applied to an American university, college or community college without having any knowledge of the English language. Once they came to the United States, they were surrounded by a language and a culture they did not know or understand. The Center Eor Intensive English Studies (CIES) was established m early 1980 by Dr. Rick Jenks, Director of the O enter Makes Adjustment for Foreign Students Easier " The program satisfied two great needs — hrst to teach foreign students the necessary English language skills to allow them to attend an American university and second, to give graduate students in the Multi-Lmgual Multi-Cultural Program a means of supporting themselves, an opportunity to teach and to do research, " Dr. Jenks said. The graduate students served as teaching assistants to the professors at CIES. There were two terms ot CIES classes per semester which ranged from elementary to high school to business level classes. " You have an American student once a week to help, but It ' s up to their schedule. The center helps students get involved, " said Heithen Alkirami.

Many even dreamed of workmg behind the scenes to mal :e these types of people successful. Students with these kinds of dreams had the opportunity to experience the political world firsthand through the internship program m the political science department. " Some of the interns serve m government offices, m the legislature or administration. Some serve in public interest or lobbying groups, election campaigns or political party offices, " political science professor Paul J. Piccard, who supervised approximately 30 interns each semester, said. Interns earned up to twelve hours of political science credit towards their degree. The employer benefited by getting an intern ready to learn and the intern gained work experience in a political environment. With the Capital and many government agencies only a few blocks away, students had ample opportunity to enter this political arena. Brian Rovetta, a senior m Political Science and Russian Languages, was an intern for the Bill Grant for Senate Campaign. His responsibilities were varied and included assessing the candidates ' and issues ' press coverage, research on current issues, and grass roots organization. " Getting to see how politics really works, " Rovetta said, was what he enjoyed the most about his internship. He made tudents Gain Experience Through Political Internships important contacts which were valuable for after graduation. Daniel Osterndorf was an intern for Senator Jeanne Malchon of the Florida Legislature. Osterndorf followed bills through the legislative process, summariz ed bills for the senator and attended committee meetings and sessions. In the 1992 Session, the legislature dealt with such issues as redistnctmg, budget problems, and severe cutbacks in major areas including education. Osterndorf was concerned about the future of education. " It was a great time to be there learning about the system, " he commented. Because Osterndorf planned on attending law school and eventually working for the government, learning how the government worked was a great experience. During the session, the third fioor of the Capital was packed with lobbyists. Among them was Jason Goldman an intern v ith the law firm of McFarlain, Sternstein, Wiley and Cassedy. He kept up-to-date on issues important to the firm s clients and spoke about issues m front of committees m an attempt to persuade them to vote in favor of his clients. The bad thing about interning, from Goldman ' s point of view, was sometimes missing out on the campus experience .

Sometimes interns are kept on in the office and become staff members. Regardless of whether or not the student earned a job from the internship, students who planned to enter the job market benehted. They met people other than professors, established a reputation outside school, and demonstrated responsibility. Dr. Piccard considered the program successful. " Overwhelmingly the students and the people who are supervising the students give me affirmative responses, " he explained.

S}poYts - 95 An Legend The great Seminole Indian Chief, known as Chief Osceola, has been celebrated at our football games for over 13 years. Bill Durham lathered the idea of the horse and rider as a sophomore m 1 963. Although the idea did not catch on then. Coach Bowden helped bring it to life m 1978. Renegade and Chief Osceola made Uicir debut at the Oklahoma State game that same year. This was where the tradition began. Becoming a chief was not something to be taken lightly. Tryouts usually occurred one to two years belorc the current chiel retired. Approximately 180 students applied for this honor. The Renegade team of twelve judged the students on grade point average, riding ability and character. Applicants also proved their bareback riding ability and went through an interview. In order to become a chief the student must have at least a 3.0 grade point average and the ability to maintain that GPA. The student did not become a chief as soon as he was chosen. The newly chosen chief was a back-up rider and an apprentice hrst. Tom Sawyer was the lirst apprentice to become the actual chief after only one year of apprenticeship. Allen Durham followed his footsteps. Four to live days a week ol riding practice, three to k ur hours a day, were recjuired ol the apprentices. They learned techniques such as how to hold the spear so that It would not burn Renegade and how to time everything just right so that he stayed withm the given time limit on the Held. The thirty pound spear was perhaps the most traditional aspect ol the • mascot. It has always been a rule that the spear is only lit if there is an opponent. It was not lit at the " garnet and gold " game, an annual scrimmage between the Seminole offense and defense, for this reason. The University of Florida football game was one where tradition stood its tallest. In every game, for the past thirteen years. Chief Osceola did something a little different from any other game. Instead of the usual running and planting ol the spear, Cheif Osceola stepped off the horse and planted the spear. The concept of Chief Osceola as a mascot was supported fully by the actual Seminole Indian tribe from the moment it began m 1978. Bill Durham met with this tribe in the planning stages of Chief Osceola and Renegade. The clothing Tom Sawyer wore was completely authentic. This included a breast-plate, dress, and all other extras. The only thing that was not authentic was the wig. Just as there was a back-up rider (apprentice), and a new Chief Osceola every few years, there was also a back-up horse. The Renegade everyone saw at lootball games was the third horse. Of course. Renegade is only a stage name for the horse, but that did not matter in the hearts of Seminole fans. The original Chief Osceola was extremely fluent m English. His mother was Indian and his father was English. Such a diversihed background helped make him a great legend. Chief Osceola was perhaps the most remarkable university tradition . e 3)c oyz Z(X Q)c Pholo by Zulma Crespo (XC 96 - hooking Back - - x?A 2 ' SSa The great Chief Osceola plants the flaming spear at the start of the Homecoming game against Middle Tennessee State.

In 1988, in the same situation, the team dropped the season opener with a momentum- breaking loss to Miami, 31-0. After that first game, Bowden said, " We celebrated too early. We couldn ' t handle being number one. " This season, however, Bowden was determined not to let that happen. " WeVe been strict on things, trying to keep focused. " the head coach said. With an extra game, the Disneyland Pigskm Classic, and a definite possiblity of post- season play, the Semmoles had the potential to go 13- 0. However, they had to take it one week at a time. Easier said than done. The road from preseason number one to national champions on New Year ' s Day was a long and tough one. The Tribe started the season Aug. 29 against Brigham Young University in the Pigskm Classic and looked to end it on Jan. 1 in a bowl game. In between, they faced the University of Michigan m Ann Arbor, Photo By Ryals Lee i he referee signals a safety af- ter Dan Footman sacks BYU quarterback Ty Detmer in the endzone. The Seminoles led the Cougars 44-14. also had to compete with the history books. No team in college football history had ever gone through the season ranked number one from start to finish. But It was not an impossible task. The Semmoles returned 19 starters from the past season ' s team, a team that went 10-2. Included in those starters was quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Casey Weldon. Shannon Baker, Edgar Bennett, Terrell Buckley, Kirk Carruthers, Marvin Jones and Amp Lee were other players that coaches and fans expected to see great accomplishments from. Also, the new freshman class was rated one of the nation ' s best. Before worrying about other games, the team had to face their first test m Anaheim, California against Brigham Young. Nineteenth-ranked BYU was not a team to take lightly. In the 1990 Pigskm Classic, Brigham Young shocked thenumber one team, Miami, 28-21. The Cougars featured Ty Detmer, 1990 Heisman Trophy Winner. With the slogan, " No Excuses, " the Semmoles just the Orangemen of Syracuse, and perennial had to live up to their potential.

Fullback Edgar Bennett rushed for a 20 yard touchdown and placed a 7-0 deficit on the board. Once again, Bennett worked his magic and rushed another 39 yards for another Seminole score. " I thought we played great, it was a great team wm. The offensive line did a great job opening up holes for the running backs and protecting Casey (Weldon) all night, " Bennett said. The second half spotlight focused on big plays and an ample supply of Seminole points. By the end of the third quarter, the tribe racked up 35 to BYU ' smere 14. " Ifyou watched this game, you would have seen about eight passes that shouldVe been missed but weren ' t. All of the guys did their job and did it well, " said Weldon, who went 21-for-28, with 268 yards and two TD ' s for the evening. As the clock hit double zero, the Seminoles recorded their first big win by destroying BYU 44-28. " I would not correct a thing we did tonight except for some of the penalties.

The offense ' s first play from the line of scrimmage was a 78 yard touchdown pass from quarterb ack Casey Weldon to tight end Lonnie Johnson . " It was quite a memorable moment catching the hrst touchdown, " Johnson said. The Greenwave inched their way down the field to the Seminole 18. On a forth and six, Tulane ' s Gary Butler kicked a field goal which narrowed the score to 7-3. At the beginning of the second quarter, Weldon looked to sophomore Warren Hart on third and goal. " The feeling I got from making that completed pass was indescribable. 1 was overwhelmed because it was my first collegiate touchdown, " Hart said. Before the end of the quarter, Weldon connected with Hart again for another four yard touchdown run, which secured the first half score 24-3. The third quarter action saw junior Amp Lee add 25 yards and another touchdovm to his record and a 3 1 -3 score on the board. Second string quarterback Brad Johnson relieved Casey Weldon and passed to Lonnie Johnson for another touchdo wn which raised the score 38-1 1. Reserve quarterback Charlie Ward also saw playing time. He and freshmen Marquette Smith marked up a combination of 61 yards for the game as the offense put a stop to Tulane ' s defense. With the win, the Seminoles improved their record to 2-0.

BOBBY BOWDEN Rod his " This year we have the advantage of being ex- perienced. It ' s the same ballclub with a year under their belts. Sacrifice and team- work will be the key to their success. " AMNG THEIR POINTS The tomahawk trend spread across the nation. From the Atlanta Braves to the Kansas City Chiefs, this was the " year o f the tomahawk. " Much more than a trend m Tallahassee, the tomahawk has decorated the helmets of the Seminoles since the 1970 ' s. The tomahawk rewarded those players who made " big plays. " Predetermined categories and a system of points helped the coaches decide who received the honor of adding a tomahawk to their helmet. After players earned 10 points, they received a tomahawk. Plays such as sacks and fumble recoveries are worth five points each. However, some plays earned automatic tomahawks, such as touchdown passes, catches, and runs. " Not only are points awarded to players, they are also taken away for fumbles, interceptions, and other costly errors, " defensive secretary Mary Jo O ' Donnell said. " Reggie Freeman knows how to get those tomahawks, " assistant to coach Wally Burnham, Tom Wheeler said. Freeman led the defense for the tribe with 30 tomahawks on his helmet. " From a block on a return to a tackle mside the 2 5 , tomahawks are given for a variety of key defensive plays, " Wheeler said. Linebacker Kirk Carruthers remembered his best " tomahawk " play, " Two years ago, against Miami ( 1 989) , it was a goal line stand . Their running back went over the top, fumbled, and I recovered the football. It was a great victory, " Carruthers said. The Seminoles beat Miami that year 24-10. Senior outside linebacker Howard Dmkins earned over 18 tomahawks during his career. " My best play was the pass 1 intercepted m the end zone against Michigan, " Dinkins said. Cornerback Terrell Buckley had about 30 tomahawks, and got most of those by interceptions and long punt returns. Amp Lee led the team with 33 tomahawks. Casey Weldon was not far behind with 28. The tomahawk system for offense was also for a variety of key plays. " A 100 yard rush, passing 50% of 15 attempts, touchdown passes, runs and catches are a few of the categories for offense, " offensive coordinator secretary Sheila Smgletary said. " At the end of each week the player with the most points is awarded " Tomahawk Player of the Week, " Wheeler said. The seniors and superstars could be spotted by their tomahawk covered helmets. Like the notches in a knight ' s sword, the tomahawks stood for victory.

S oris - 101 TRICKING When spectators watched a Seminole football game, the mam thing they expected was the unexpected. Bobby Bowden became famous (infamous to the opposing team) for his " trick plays. " Whether it was something simple, like a reverse or something completely unexpected, like a fake punt or a held goal, fans came to know and love Bowden ' s arsenal of unique strategies. The trick play craze exploded m 1988, when Leroy Butler (a cornerback for the Semmoles who has since graduated) took a fake punt 78 yards en route to a game-winning held goal. This took place at Clemson University ' s intimidating home stadium, nicknamed " Death Valley, " and the Tribe won over the Tigers 24-21 m the last mmute. The fake punt was dubbed the " Puntrooskie " and starred as the play of the week on many sports highUght shows. In September, the Semmoles traveled to the University of Michigan m Ann Arbor. Although the tribe jumped into the lead at the very beginning and held it the entire game, Bowden spruced up an already exciting hrst quarter with two trick plays. The first one was nicknamed the " Crocodile, " because Bowden got it from Junior Reggie Freeman tackles quarterback Elvis Grbac as he attempts to pass. Todd Mcin- tosh intercepted it for a touch- down. University of Florida coach Steve Spurrier, but didn ' t want to call it the " Gator " — a dirty word around Tallahassee. In this play, quarterback Casey Weldon threw a lateral pass to Charlie Ward, a reserve quarterback, who paused, then threw it back across the held to Weldon. The Michigan defensive line was completely faked out as Weldon then sprinted 29 yards to their 11-yard line. Four plays later, the Semmoles scored a touchdown on the second trick play. Kicker Dan Mowrey faked a held goal attempt as back-up quarterback holder Brad Johnson tossed the ball up to William Floyd, who broke a tackle and made it into the endzone, increasing the Tribe ' s lead over the Wolverines. " We knew ahead of time that we were going to run this play the first time we attempted a field goal, " Johnson said. " We have a fake held goal planned for every game, but we wanted to save It for Michigan. We had practiced that play against our defense, so we were confident that it would work. " However, unlike the " Crocodile, " they have no special nickname for the fake field goal. The gridiron battle with the University of Michigan was touted as one of the best match-ups of this college football season, and the Semmoles ' trick plays certainly added to the excitement. l i ' Bv Joanna Sparkivian Photo by Ryals Lee 1 he " Crocodile " -reserve quar- terback Charlie Ward laterals back to Weldon.

The tribe proved it deserved its number one ranking, playing a very physical game in front of 106,145 fans at Michigan Stadium. Florida State walked away v ith its fourth victory of the ' 91 season. Heisman Trophy candidate Casey Weldon ignited the offense as he completed 16 of 28 passes for 268 yards and three touchdov ns. Amp Lee amazed the crovvd by carrying the ball 20 times lor 122 yards and tv o touchdowns. On defense, Terrell Buckley faced the challenge of defending Heisman hopeful Desmond Hov ard. Buckley responded with two interceptions, one on the second play of the game when he forged ahead 40 yards for a touchdov n. In the third quarter the spotlight focused on the strength of the defense. " We probably became a team more today than in any other game before, " defense coordinator Mickey Andrev s said.

" The fault I sav in that play was poor blocking and tackling, " coach Bobby Bowden said. An Edgar Bennett TD and a Mowrey field goal closed the score at 17- 14. Despite the rainy weather, the Seminoles kept fighting. " We overcame adversity and played a good game, " linebacker Kirk Carruthers said. Weldon threv a 50 yard bomb to wide receiver Shannon Baker for another touchdown. " We were sluggish because of the vs eather. It took time for us to crank up, but after that v e never looked back, " Baker said. In the third quarter officials tossed center Robbie Baker out of the game for unsportsmanlike conduct. " There v as some shoving going on all throughout the game. Every team gets frustrated. It was bound to happen sooner or later, " Carruthers said.

Senior offensive guard Reggie Dixon learned five different computer languages and v as an avid Ninetendo player. The victory over LSU meant a free dinner for senior cornerback Errol McCorvey. His brother, Derriel, played for LSU and each year they had a dinner bet riding on which team won the game. Coach Bobby Bowden ' s birthday was November 8. The team helped him celebrate by beating the South Carolina Gamecocks 38-10 the very next day. Two players could have joined Major League Baseball.

Shannon Baker, Terrell Buckley and Corey EuUer all ran the 4x100 relay for the track team, nearly making it to the NCAA track and field championships. Several players had nicknames that weren ' t well publicized. Junior fullback Felix Harris was nicknamed, " The Cat " and senior quarterback Brad Johnson was called, " The Bull. " Because of his resemblance to quarterback Joe Montana, Casey Weldon ' s teammates just called him Joe. Not many people knew Tiger McMillon ' s real name, w hich was Sam. Junior linebacker David Stallworth vv as President of his class and of the National Honor Society at his high school. And finally, the team has a set of fwins that have played football together since they were eight years old, Henry and Joe Ostaszewski.

" OWN BUT NOT OUT " Death Valley " was an inappropriate nickname for the LSU stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. " Injury Valley " would have been more accurate. In addition to battling rain, referees and a halftime deficit, the Tribe dealt with injuries to several first-string players. Center Robbie Baker received the first injury, a four-inch gash in his knee. Amazingly, he returned for the final four plays of the game. Almost immediately after that episode, offensive tackle Kevin Mancini went down, also with an injured knee. From then on, the situation got worse. Fullback Edgar Bennett and v ide receiver Kevin Knox -were both sidelined with shoulder injuries. Offensive guard Reggie Dixon also had shoulder problems but stayed in the game. Casey Weldon found his name added to the injury list with a troubled knee. Struggling with an opponent they expected to handle easily, the Tribe already faced adverse conditions — a flooding field and questionable calls by the officials. Now they put almost the entire second-team offensive line in a close game. Jeff Deremer, John Flath, Eric Gibbs and Patrick McNeil rose to the challenge and helped the offense score on the next drive. The Seminoles took the victory 27-16, keeping their season record untarnished at 9-0. Brad Scott, offensive line coach, was impressed with the team. " IVe probably never been more proud of a group than I am of the second-team line for the way they played with the game on the line. They had the character and determination to go out there and get the job done, " Scott said. However, the team had to prepare for the next battle against Louisville. Many wondered who v as out for the week and possibly the season. Jeff Deremer played in place of Robbie Baker. Eric Gibbs and Reggie Dixon both substituted for Mancini, and Brad Johnson stepped in at quarterback . The next game was against South Carolina, and the only starter who remained on the bench was Kevin Mancini, who opted for rehabilitation in order to prepare for the upcoming Miami game.

LSU started the scoring, with a 63-yard pass mto the endzone withm the hrst minute of play. On their first possession, Weldon threw an 8-yard pass to Lonnie Johnson, who fumbled the ball. LSU recovered and capitalized by kicking a field goal. The Seminole offense could not get going, and LSU kicker Pedro Suarez once again kicked for 3. Amp Lee dove into the endzone for the Seminole first score, but the Tigers had another field goal, making the halfiime score 16-7. The momentum changed with the second half, as the tribe scored on its first possession with a 22- yard pass from Weldon to Lee. During the fourth quarter, William Floyd and Lee both scored touchdowns, making the final score 27-16. The defense completely shut down LSU in the second half, allowing no scoring by the Tigers. Marvin Jones led the defense with 14 tackles. " Marvin Jones made some plays that you make on ability, things you can ' t coach. He played really well, " Bobby Bowden said. Although ram, questionable calls and a number of injuries produced problems for the Tribe, ihey were able to overcom.e and pull off another victory, improving their season record to 8-0.

H PI BRAD Johnson p " One of the biggest things that ' s helped me is just sitting back and watching Casey, how he ' s performed and the things he does. I try to add that to my game sometimes. " goiNG Did parents really travel to see their boys play ball? You bet! " My mother, father, brother and sister come up from Fort Myers to all of the games, and depending on how far It IS, sometimes they attend the away games as well, " center Robbie Baker said. Some parents lived far away which made it difficult for them to come to games. Brad Johnson ' s parents hved in Black Mountain, North Carolina, which was a nine hour drive. Brad ' s dad went to all the home games. His mom tried to go also, but she ' s a high school assistant principal and was expected to attend their games as well. " It ' s great to see them at the games when they can both make it, " Johnson said. For some parents, watching the tackling and roughness was a worrisome experience. " I really worry about Casey getting hurt, " Diane Weldon, Casey ' s mother, said. " At the LSU game, his father and 1 were very concerned. I remember Casey telling me he was scared, not because he was m pain from his knee injury, but because he thought he ' d never be able to play football again. Once 1 saw Casey ' s smile though, 1 knew he would be O.K. " Practicing for games takes a lot of time, which left little room for school work. " Even though football practice is very demanding, Dan has done well with his grades, " Ron Mowrey, Dan ' s father said. Certain incidents made specihc games memorable for parents. " The Syracuse game was especially exciting for our family. 1 remember seeing my son kick the field goal that put FSU ahead. I was so proud of Dan, " Mr, Mowrey said. " 1 remember seeing Casey getting tackled rather hard in the Miami game. 1 was petrihed because it was right after his knee injury, so I yelled ' get off of him ' over and over and eventually everyone around me joined in the chant, " Mrs. " Weldon said. It seemed that a high-ranked football team would be all glitz and glamour, but that was not true. " After the Michigan game, we got some really nasty and hateful messages on our phone. It was distressing for Dan, but he got himself together and went on with his life, " Mr. Mowrey said. He also said that " too much emphasis is put on winning. ' Winning the game is nice, but it is not all that important to parents. They are proud of their sons no matter what.

South Carolina was a 25 point underdog yet they stayed close through the first half, revealing the Tribe ' s weaknesses, a slow starting offense and a defense susceptible to the big play. Following halftime, South Carolina was held to 142 yards of offense and no points as the tribe took control.

" 1 hv ulma Crespo -Sports - 109 A Close Call Businesses closed early and fans raced to Doak Campbell stadium for the most anticipated game of the season. The Hurricanes came to Tallahassee with a more subtle, less boastful attitude than normal. They knew the number one team in the nation wouldn ' t relinquish their title without a good fight. The outcome of the battle between number one and number two would determine not only the state and national championship titles, but it would give bragging rights to the winner for another year. By the end of the hrst half , the Semmoles lead 10-7. It looked as though the Tribe would be victorious m their national championship goal. However, m the last few minutes of the game, something went wrong. The Hurricanes jumped ahead 1 7-16 on a controversial touchdown call. The Seminole offense drove down to the 34 yard line and Gerry Thomas came m to kick. What appeard to be a perfect kick, fell inches short of the right goalpost. " I ' ve done that kick a thousand times. 1 can ' t imagine what went wrong, " Thomas said. After the devastating one point loss, the team and fans quietly left the stadium. " One play beat us and that was our own fault. " We showed what it takes to be champions, but unfortunately we couldn ' t pull It together m the end, " linebacker Kirk Carruthers said. With the loss, the Semmoles dropped to number three m the polls. Amy Shmn 1. - A • " ' 3 M y i 1 ' Vf " ' Hp ' .t .

I wish the outcome would have been different " ACMG UP THE HONORS Even though it may not have been a national championship season, two Seminole football players and coach Bobby Bowden placed themselves among the country ' s best as they racked up post-season awards. Terrell Buckley received the Jim Thorpe award, given to the best defensive back m the nation. Former Seminole Deion Sanders won the award two years ago. " The Jim Thorpe award has been a goal for me since I hrst came to FSU. It ' s like the Heisman for a defensive back, " Buckley said. Buckley broke the record of most interceptions m a single season and planned to move m to the NFL draft for the upcoming post season picks. Senior quarterback Casey Weldon received the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm award, presented to the nation ' s best senior quarterback. Weldon beat former Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer of Brigham Young and was also one of the four hnalists m the Heisman Trophy race. Weldon went to New York City for the Downtown Athletic Club Heisman presentation. He finished an impressive second behind Michigan ' s Desmond Howard. Weldon was also a hnalist for two other honors — the Davey O ' Brien award for a quarterback (awarded to Detmer) and the Maxwell award for the most outstanding player (which Howard received). " It was a great honor for me to have been chosen as a candidate for these awards. Opportunities like these happen only once in a lifetime and I ' m glad that I represented Florida State, " Weldon said. Coach Bobby Bowden doesn ' t have a national championship under his belt yet, but the Walter Camp Foundation gave him the honor of being Coach of the Year. " Being Coach of the Year is terrific. It ' s a very prestigious award and I feel very priviledged, " Bowden said. Other Seminoles received recognition as well. Sophomore Marvin Jones finished a hnalist for the Lombardi award and was nominated for the Dick Butkus award. The Associated Press All-American team boasted the names of Jones and Buckley on the first team. Weldon left his mark on the second team Imeup. Buckley, Jones, Weldon, Kirk Carruthers, Amp Lee, Kevin Mancini, Mike Morris and Carl Simpson made first team All-South Independent. " I ' ve been nominated for awards before, but this time they meant a lot. Since it was my last season, I really tried to be the best I could and have a great season. I ' m happy that it paid off in the end, " Carruthers said. Edgar Bennett, Howard Dmkins, and Robert Stevenson were also at the top of the second team listing.

They met with the Texas A M Aggies, the Southwest Conference champions. The Cotton Bowl was one of a few New Year ' s Day bowl games that the Semmoles had not played in, and it was only the second time they had met the Aggies on the gridiron. " We came to Texas with one thing on our minds and that was to win this bowl game. We had a rough season with a few big disappointments. This win would make us feel better. It ' s also my last game before graduation and I ' m going to make it count, " Kirk Carruthers said. Even though the tribe ' s offense struggled, the defense held strong and put a stop to the Aggies scoring attempts. " For some reason we started out really slow, but then we hgured out what they were doing, their blocking patterns. We just put it all together and stopped them. We didn ' t give them anything, " noseguard James Chaney said. The first score of the game occurred when quarterback Casey Weldon was sacked m the endzone by Aggie Quentm Coryatt. Weldon responded by rushing four yards on the next Seminole possession for the only touchdown of the game. Kicker Gerry Thomas added three additional points when he completed a 1 0-yard held goal to issue the hnal score of 1 0-2. " We worked really hard this season and a wm m a bowl game was what we deserved. It wasn ' t our best game, but it was a wm and we earned it, " Weldon said.

" There really wasn ' t much more for me to do here , except win the Heisman. No matter how well I played, a defensive player isn ' t going to wm It, " Thorpe Award winner Buckley said. Although Terrell played only three seasons here, his hold on some records suggests that he was here longer. His 21 career interceptions were a school mark, as were the 12 he had this season.

" 1 don ' t think he could top what he did this year if he stayed. I believe he ' s ready for the next level, " Andrews said. Head coach Bobby Bowden agreed. " He couldn ' t do much more for us. I understand his position. " And because he was leaving, Bowden would have to fill his position next year. But that was not the only position that Bowden had to hll. In mid-January, junior tailback Amp Lee decided to forgo his hnal season of eligibility and entered the NFL draft. Lee ' s situation differed slightly from Buck ' s in that he was dismissed from the university m December for failure to meet grade-point requirements. He said that several factors beyond that helped him make his decision. After leaving the university he lost all of his hnancial aid. While Bowden didn ' t feel that this would critically affect the team ' s performance m the future, he did express his views concerning Lee ' s future. " I ' ve never enjoyed coaching a kid any more.

They dealt with the fact that some people don ' t take them seriously. They also weren ' t recognized athletes. " We go through a tough physical regimen and put m just as many hours as any other athlete. We ' re probably at a higher injury risk because when you ' re thrown 25 feet m the air, anything can go wrong. We deserve to be recognized as athletes, but we ' re seen solely as entertainers. People fail to realize the stunts we do are dangerous, " varsity cheerleader Nicole Batchelor said. During football season, they spent about 30 hours a week going to practice, working out, learning routines, traveling to away games and cheering. Basketball season was more hectic because the squad prepared a national competition entry. " We have two squads.

It was the tirst year we tried it this way and it worked well, " Batchelor said. Since cheerleading was not a varsity sport, they did not receive athletic scholarships. The money they received went towards travel expenses, uniforms and other supplies . Tryouts were held last spring and focused on gymnastics, jumping, and dance . For the men, stunt spotting was taught from the onset. " Our primary duty is to protect the girls and each other. Spotting is the most important thing we do, " captain Tom Hurst said. " Safety is the first thing taught. The rule is never let the girl hit the ground, no matter what you have to do to break her fall. Our guys are really good about that, " Batchelor said. The cheerleaders were active in the community. They made appearances for Muscular Dystrophy, worked with freshmen orientation and performed at other community events. " Dedication is the key to being a cheerleader. 1 like being involved in the middle of the action. You make close friendships and 1 consider them my college family , " Hurst said.

Besides cheering for the women ' s volleyball and basketball games, the squad cheered at the Homecoming and South Carolina football games. Greg was also the only JV cheerleader chosen to perform with the v arsity squad at Pow Wow. " It was the best thing that has happened to me so far.

Then the Tarheels took off, capitalizin g on a Seminole shooting slump to jump ahead.

The biggest casualty occurred to point guard Charlie Ward. In the first round game against Montana State, Ward dislocated his left shoulder, but was able to pop it back and return to the game. In the second half, it dislocated again more severely, taking him out of the game. " It ' s a chance I took (returning to the game). It ' s just something that can happen, " Ward said. The team advanced to the second round, minus Charlie Ward, to face Georgetown. Coach Kennedy put Sam Cassell at point guard, with Bob Sura and Chuck Graham to complete the three- guard set. " This team raUied around Charlie Ward. They ' ve come together all year, " Kennedy said. The Semmoles pulled off a comeback victory m the closing minutes and found themselves in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1972. The big question remained — would Ward be able to play against Indiana? It turned out his injury was a rotator-cuff pmch, not as severe as a dislocation. He played 26 minutes m the Indiana game, but the Seminoles fell short, losing 85-74. Photo by Bucky Parrish L harlie Ward sees playing time as he tries to steal the ball from an Indiana defender.

The Semmoles received the third seed m the West Region and a date with the 1 4th seeded Montana Grizzlies in Boise, Idaho. " We got a very good seeding and 1 think the reason is because of the tough conference that we play in and our road wins, " coach Kennedy said. In their tournament opener, the Tribe got off to a fast start and led by 1 3 points at halftime. Two minutes into the second half, point guard Charlie Ward dislocated his left shoulder while chasing a loose ball and was out for the rest of the game. The team then took Its largest lead of the game, 54-31. " We got more intense when Charlie left the game, " said Sam Cassell, who took over point guard duties with Ward out. Montana outscored Florida State 29- 1 2 over the next ten minutes to cut the lead to 66-60. Cassell, who led with 23 points, hit some key free throws dovvTi the stretch and the Seminoles held on to vvan 78-68.

" At halftime, I told our guys that we were concentrating too much on Mourning and not enough on our offense. We needed to play our brand ofbasketball, " Kennedy said. Down 59-49 with eight minutes to go, the team went on a 14-3 run to go up by one. Cassell put the Tribe up by five with a three- pointer with 1:30 to play. They sealed the game with free throws and left with a 78-68 win. " A lot of people thought we were m trouble without Charlie, but I knew this team would come together, " Edwards said. Ward came back to the game for the Sweet 1 6 when the Tribe faced the second seeded Indiana Hoosiers. The Semmoles jumped out to a 9-2 lead but Indiana fought back to lead 40-38 at intermission. The Hoosiers opened the second half with ten straight pomts and led by as many as 18 before Florida State made one last rally. Cassell and Edwards led a charge that cut the margin to 77-72 late m the game, but Indiana held on for an 85-74 victory. " The run that they put together to start the second half really killed us, " Kennedy said . " I was proud of the way we hung tough though. We have nothing to be ashamed of because we had a great season. This is the best team that IVe had here at Florida State.

The 6-foot-6-inch standout also played on the women ' s basketball team. What made Mary unique were the other things she had done away from school. Berryhill came to Florida State from Dayton, Ohio in the fall of 1985 as Mary Buchanon. After sitting out the 85-86 season as a redshirt, Berryhill played 27 games the following season for first year head coach Marynell Meadors. She then left Florida State because of academic difficulties. In June of 1987, she joined the Army and was stationed m Germany. " I was young and eventually learned m the Army that I still needed a bachelor ' s degree, " Berryhill said. While m the Army, she met and married Ricky Berryhill and had a baby girl named Ashley. At the age of 24, Berryhill juggles a full load of classes, plays on the basketball team and still finds time to be a good wife and mother. " I really respect what Mary does. She is so dedicated to each one of her roles, " Meadors said. Her husband received custody of h is two children from a previous marriage last November. Mary took it all m stride. Photo By Nancy M. Rosa J unior forward Connie Robinson tries to pass the ball to an awaiting teammate, while being guarded by two North Carolina State defenders. " It IS hard to have to cook for five now, but I ' m not doing it myself. Ricky helps a lot, " Berryhill said. On the basketball court, Mary had to work just as hard as she did at home. Although she played for a community team for three seasons while m Germany, it was not at the same level of play as the ACC. Coming off the bench, Berryhill averaged over ten minutes a game, m helping the Lady Semmoles m their first season in the ACC. Perhaps Mary ' s best game of the year was m January when she scored nine points and grabbed thr ee rebounds in a 76-75 victory over the nationally ranked NC State. " In the NC State ballgame, Mary really sparked us. If she didn ' t play like that, we wouldn ' t have won the game, " Meadors said. Just making it back to Florida State was an accomplishment. Meadors and Berryhill kept in touch while she was overseas and the door was always open for her possible return. Now that she had returned, Berryhill was pursuing a criminology degree and a career in corrections. Her priorities had also changed. " Education is my mam motivation. I could have been finished, but I ' m doing it the hard way, " Berryhill said By Ohris Walker Photo by Nancy M.

What did they mean? One of the requirements for all intramural teams was a name. Names were tossed around by the teams, and eventually decisions were made about each title. Some were terms related to war-like people such as the Gladiators and others were entertaining such as a football team called the Sensitive Weasels, a basketball team called Men Without Height, and a co- rec mnertube waterpolo team named the Wet Willy ' s. One of the co-ed Softball teams from Salley Hall was named the Speckled Yaks. " We always go with the name Speckled Yaks, whether we ' re doing an English paper or playing on a team. It started back m high school with a bunch of guys and it stuck. It ' s a historical thing, " Ken Shannon said. " The Speckled Yak is a real animal. It ' s a cross between a llama and an ox. It comes from the Middle East, " Jason Lent, another teammate said. Several Landis Hall residents formed a men ' s basketball team named CALL, which stood for the Coalition Against the Lounge Lizards.

Independent, dorm, and Greek leagues participated in the games. were residents who sat in the lounge and talked about politics and other current events for hours. " The Lounge Lizards are always there and all they do is sit there and play chess. Dungeons and Dragons, and talk about poUtics. We thought it would be kind of funny, " freshman CALL member Matt Bennett said. Another basketball team from Landis was the Pat Kennedy Tribute team. The team carried the name from the previous year ' s team because when they contacted coach Kennedy and told him about the name, he showed up to one of their games. " We decided to try it again , but he never came to see us play. I guess his schedule was too hectic, " Jeremy Paulding said. The fifth floor basketball team from Landis was known as Better Than Women. " We played two guys teams and beat them. We played a team of five women who were our toughest match and beat them by a point. We decided on our name after that game. It was all in fun, " captain Tom Cappello said.

However, he found time m his hectic schedule to be a soccer coach for Alpha Phi Omega ' s women ' s soccer team called the Violent Femmes. He developed his coaching skills when he went to high school m England. " We lived at RAF Lakenheath (a naval base) near Cambridge and I helped out with the city league there. That ' s where I got valuable experience from, " Nolte said. With his knowledge of the sport, he helped the Violent Femmes make it to the second game of the IM playoffs.

The first of his three degrees was from Wilkes College m Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, m history. He completed his physical education degree at the University of Delaware before going for his master s at Syracuse University m New York. " When I went to Syracuse I was involved with the intramurals department. It took only three months for me to be hooked, " Blihar said .

John also played on teams of his own. " The hrsl year I was here, I played flag football, basketball and Softball. This season, I only had time to play football, " Blihar said. He also kept busy by keeping statistics lor various varsity teams. " It was really nice to sit down front at the Civic Center (for basketball) during the first ACC season, " Blihar said.

An athletic department subcommittee formed to examine the possibihties of creating a varsity soccer program on campus. " We ' re awaiting cost projections from the athletic department and it ' s in our hve-year plan to consider adding varsity sports, " Jerry Draper, chairman of the committee, said. However, soccer at Florida State was alive and well m the form of a club sport. Like any club, the members had to pay dues, about $45-50 a year, which went mainly toward uniforms. They also had a coach, who worked strictly on a volunteer basis. The men ' s club had two teams. One played semi-pro and city teams and had a 1 7-6- 1 record, hnishing third m the Florida Intercity Soccer League. The collegiate team played other schools teams. This season they competed against other ACC schools, several Florida schools and junior colleges. They finished with a record of seven losses and one tie. " The season was tough. A lot of the players get disheartened because we have no support. We can ' t even get a van to travel to away games because we have no funds, " freshman goalie Jarrett McConnell said.

The ACC was represented by foui schools at the NCAA soccer champion- ships. ' Virginia won the men ' s title, while North Carolina grabbed their fifth consecutive women ' s championship. Athletic Director Bob Coin said that the university was a long way from establishing a team. " We ' re not even close to getting a soccer program started at FSU. There are a lot of holdups, especially funding, " Com said. " It ' s a shame that FSU doesn ' t have a varsity team because there ' s so much interest and talent m this state, particularly this area. I have no doubt that with a coach and varsity status, we could be one of the top teams m the country, " John Livingstone, president of the Soccer Club, said. Florida has been listed, along with Texas and California, as having the most soccer talent m the nation. In fact, many of the high-ranked ACC soccer teams list players from Florida on their team rosters. Was the absence of a varsity soccer team another thing to blame on the budget cuts? " Basically, I think it ' s the bureaucracy and the slowness of getting things organized. We talked to the committee, but we never really get any straight answers, " McConnell said.

The women ' s rugby team has been competing since 1975 as a club sport. Club sports are different from mtramurals and varsity sports m that not all of the team members are students. " About 75 percent of the club are students, and the others are just members of the community who have an interest in the sport, " Kathy Flores, one of the coaches, said. Just how successful are these rugby players? Well, since the national championships for women ' s rugby started back in 1979, the team from Florida Sate has been every year. They won the championships m 1979, ' 80, ' 84, ' 85 and have been runners-up all the other years. This past season, the championships were held in Minnesota. In order to go, the team had to raise money for their travel expenses . One way they did this was by working the concession stands at football games. Also, part of their tradition was performing an exhibition match during halftime of the Garnet-and-Gold football game. The women ' s rugby team has done this for the past twelve years, and donations from the exhibition also contributed to their travel funds. Coached by Flores and Candi Orsmi, the team practiced twice a week. Their games took place on weekends at the intramural fields.

We found ourselves learnmg the Greek alphabet whether we intended to or not. Some of us even chose to make the bold step and rush a fraternity or sorority We were learning about things and meetmg people that we might never have even known about. This new, important part of our lives had quickly formed. Everything we put into it, we received right back. We found ourselves forming close bonds with fellow pledges and becoming close to our big little brothers sisters. We were attending socials, parties and formals, and participat- ing in campus-wide events. We didn ' t even have to be Greek to enjoy what the Greek system had to offer. Parties, philanthropies, concerts and shows helped to bring the campus closer together. -. r 9f , smom SAYtiO TO M( (3l Photo by Bill Garrett REEKS 164 - Greeks J member of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity participates in one of their philanthropies.

In 1903 the first fraternity was established at what is now Florida State University. The establishment of Kappa Alpha was, m the words of the Argo Yearbook, " ... an honor which but tew appreciate. To be recognized by this fraternity is the highest honor, and to be the only school m the state so chosen is a distinction worthy of the greatest. " That fraternity was mo ' ed to Stetson College when the university became Florida State College for Women but returned m 1947 when Florida State University was formed out of FSCW and was joined by ten more fraternities. Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha Tau Omega, Delta Sigma Phi, Delta Tau Delta, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Kappa Tau, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Theta Chi and Tau Epsilon Phi became the fraternity system at the university. Of those fraternities, all but Tau Epsilon Phi, Alpha Epsilon Pi and Delta Sigma Phi were colonized. In 1948 the University Executive Council approved the admission ol Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Nu, Kappa Sigma and Pi Kappa Phi into the system. President Doak Campbell arranged for the hrst formal housing for the fraternities. Before then the fraternities were housed in the small white barracks, behind Kellum Hall. The new houses were Kappa Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Delta Tau Delta, Theta Chi, Phi Kappa Tau, Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Nu. All of those fraternities still occupy the same houses with the exception of Delta Tau Delta which moved into Lambda Chi Alpha ' s house and Sigma Nu which moved into the Delta Tau Delta house. ' With the addition of houses, fraternities were required to pay for a chaperone or housemother. They payed $90 a month plus room, unless they served meals, where it cost $110 plus room and meals. In 1951 the IFC established a tribunal to hear and decide cases of misconduct by fraternities. Their first meeting m 1952 was to hear the charges against Pi Kappa Phi, which were gambUng, drinking, possession of alcoholic beverages and " excessive petting " within its chapter house. They were places on social restriction for one month and probation for two. By 1955, 34 percent of the men on campus were Greek, and m 1957 the Interfraternity Council formally became a member of the National Interfraternity Conference. In the years to follow Tau Epsilon Phi, Phi Gamma Delta, Sigma Chi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Pi Kappa Phi, Kappa Sigma, Beta Theta Pi, Delta Chi, Chi Phi, Omega Psi Phi, Alpha Phi Alpha and Kappa Alpha Psi all joined the fraternity system. Through the years the fraternity system became stronger and stronger on campus. Fraternity members have been student senators, student body president, yearbook editors and have gone on to become actors, politicians and journalists. Since its humble beginnings as 11 colonies, the fraternity system has gone on to become a dominating student force with a strong campus impact. I TALLY HO Yearbook 166 - Looking Back - a ?

Interestingly enough, the room was not a classroom or even an apartment, but a dming room. And even more surprising to many was that these individuals were members of the university Greek system. This particular evening representatives from fraternities and sororities were participating m a program sponsored by Pi Kappa Phi called PUSH (People Understanding the Severely Handicapped). The activities they engaged m fostered the understanding of people who are handicapped m any way, whether it be deafness or the inability to use their legs. " PUSH focuses on empathy. We want people to understand that handicapped individuals are just like anyone else, " Sigma Kappa Representative Kathryn Demetree said. This event was one of the many philanthropic events and educational programs sponsored by Greeks ever) ' year. On an annual basis, Greeks raise thousands of dollars for worthy endeavors. Through individual and combined efforts m the form of Greek Week, charitable organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the National Alzheimers Disease By Alyssa Norfolk Foundation, and the American Heart Association benehted from the hard work and dedication put forth by the university ' s Greeks. Educational programs such as PUSH, Zeta Tau Alpha ' s AIDS Forum and the Panhellemc Association ' s Eating Disorders Seminar offered guidance combined with important information for healthy living to all of the university community, Greek and independent alike.

They also had active alumni chapters across the country which enabled graduated members to gather together socially, carry on philanthropic endeavors and serve as role models for collegiate members. Being a part of the Greek community meant something different to each member. Some individuals joined in order to gam a greater sense of self and develop their personal strengths, while others did so in order to successfully work as part of a group. Whatever their reasons were, one thing everyone agreed upon was that the friendships and memories made would last forever.

These girls were enthusiastic yet homesick and needed a friend to turn to for help when making the tough decision of which sorority to pledge. This special friend was called a Rho Chi. Rho Chi was the ofhcial name for the women who disaffiliated themselves from their sororities and assisted m escorting rushees to each house during the formal sorority rush period. These girls made sure each rushee arrived at the proper location for each event. More importantly, a Rho Chi was someone the rushee could conhde in and share her thoughts and experiences with throughout the week. These mentors were selected at least seven months before rush began from a held of hundreds of applicants. Only two to four girls were chosen from each sorority to represent the university ' s Greek system. " I was so excited that 1 received the opportunity to do this. I remember the difiiculties I encountered when I went through rush. I wanted to be there for other girls because I felt that I could relate to their emotions, " Senior Bonnie Murdoch said. A potential Rho Chi had to have an overall knowledge ot the Greek system and of all university activities. She must be open minded as well as be available to listen and understand each rushee when needed. Each Rho Chi remained unbiased when discussing the Greek system with each rushee. They were unable to reveal what sorority they were m, visit their sorority house, or even talk to their sorority sisters throughout the week of rush. This was so each rushee remained open minded and uninfluenced while forming their By Margot Miller opinions and making decisions about each sorority. A Rho Chi ' s goal was to promote " going Greek, " showing no preference for any respective sorority. ' Tt was uncomfortable and sad to walk by a group of my sorority sisters and know I wasn ' t able to join in with them, but I would never have traded the experience for anything, because I was able to meet so many great girls, " former Rho Chi Michelle Moisand said.

If a rushee got cut from one house, I would encourage them to go to the others because each girl can fit into more than just one. " It was important that a Rho Chi inform the rushee that if she did not get asked back to a house, there were other similar houses that could meet her needs. It was not always possible to make a perfect match but things usually turned out best if the rushee kept a good attitude. The rush process was based on a mutual selection by both the rushee and the individual sorority. Rho Chis were there to lend a helping hand and a listening ear for the rushees as they made it through a week filled with anticipation and important personal decisions. " The Rho Chis had a difficult job m helping rushees remain objective about the Greeks. 1 beUeve the 1991 Rho Chis did just that, " Panhellenic Adviser Miriam Nicklaus said.

Throughout lormal rush week, many spectators were present when each sorority performed their lawn Imedance routines. In the past routines have been interrupted by obnoxious behavior from onlookers. Spectators have been known to use obscene language, block traffic and rate the rushees on physical appearance . They have al so rated the sororities out loud making it difhcult for the rushees to remain objective. This was where members of rush security came into play. " Being new to a college atmosphere, it was reassuring for me to see that Florida State University implemented a security system for rush.

" However, not all fraternities had an initiation period. Alpha Epsilon Pi was one of the fraternities that reduced their initiation period from a semester to approximately five weeks. This mandator) ' action was delegated by their national chapter in response to problems associated with hazing. They decided that five weeks was still sufhcient time to educate their pledges. " When this action was hrst passed, we were all very against it, " Jack Adler, Alpha Epsilon Pi ' s president, said. He went on to say that it especially affected most of the older brothers who went through long initiations and were cheated out of the fun. He agreed that initiation and pledging not only gave pledges time to get to know the guys in the fraternity, but it also provided time for the pledge to decide if he really wanted to be there. Overall, he believed that although it helped solve some of the problems of hazing, it created its own problems through the lack of time a pledge had to prepare. Zeta Beta Tau had almost no initiation. Their pledge period was only 72 hours. Unlike Alpha Epsilon Pi, they have never really had a pledge period. Vice President Internal Jeff Koch said that pledges have gone through several titles over the years, ranging from Associate Members to New Brothers. However, like Adler, Koch said that having no pledge period, " ...does not promote unity nor cohesiveness amongst new and old members. " By Jason Do vns Yet, he said that they do ncc experience the problem of pledges feeling they did not have enough time to really try out the fraternity He did admit however, thai having only 72 hours designated as a pledge period helped their membership, as during rush, they emphasized just that, which always swayed a lot of people. " It takes out the problem of hazing, and we simply become New Brothers, " Jose Hernandez. ZBT pledge said.

Shared Experiences Promote Unity Pledging was the beginning of a whole new life, a life within a fratemiiy or sorority. It was a journey towards brother and sisterhood. With it came friendship, camaraderie and acceptance. During pledging, you lived, learned and loved your fraternity or sorority. Pledging started off as a long and often tedious process towards brotherhood. Pledging required a great time commitment to the fraternity or sorority. This all began with the initial pledge meeting which was generally led by a warden or pledge educator. It was here that all of the pledges came together to learn what they needed to know m order to help them make those important steps to brotherhood. Often, they received a number of duties and responsibilities to complete for each successive week. Given these responsibilities, it was hoped that they would learn things beneficial to them not only in the fraternity but also m everyday life. " It taught me how to work with peers m order to accomplish a common goal, " Pi Kappa Phi Pat Polito said. Sororities and fraternities have tried to include a lighter aspect m their pledge programs. This was accomplished m many different ways, the most common being through pledge parties and socials. These events gave people a chance to be m a more relaxed atmosphere and socialize with each other. " Socials gave me a chance to interact with other people m the Greek system, " Alpha Chi Omega Natalie Tizer said. Along with socials came the ever popular pledge retreat. Pledge retreats allowed for pledges to bond and grow into brother and sisterhood without outside interruptions. " My favorite limes By Bryan Hamilton during my pledge term were staying up all night for pledge retreats and painting the Sigma Alpha Epsilon lion, " Kappa Delta Tracy Guas said. Homecoming and Greek Week proved to be exceptional opportunities for all organizations on campus. Not only were they publicity builders, they also gave pledges a chance to see a large project through to completion. They were given the opportunity to participate m each step along the way and learn how to create a successful project. The more active and involved a fraternity was on campus, they more respect they received from the campus community.

" Being Greek has had a positive influence on me because it has given me a wider perspective on FSU campus hfe and it has given me opportunities that 1 otherwise would not have had, " Roy Sams said. - Greeks - 181 Bonding (Continued) encouraged campus involvement and leadership. For example, the last three student body presidents have been members of the Greek system. Greeks were also pacesetters on campus as they were well represented in many organizations such as Seminole Ambassadors, Scalphunters and Student Government Association. Each of these things set high goals for the pledges. Along with taking these leadership roles, pledges, brothers and sister often had to participate in mandatory study hours. Grades were of great importance to Greek organizations. Pledges generally had mandatory study hours as did brothers .and sisters who were doing poorly academically. Consequences of not meeting grade point average requirements included possible fining or social probation. These proved to be effective tools in encouraging students to put m the extra effort to pull off the grades. One of the most unique aspects of the pledge program was the acquisition of a big brother or big sister. These individuals served as liaisons between the pledge and the fraternity or sorority and it was through them that the pledge learned a great deal about the history and tradition of the fraternity. Not only were big brothers and big sister friends, they helped the pledge meet the requirements set forth by the fraternity. Because of the stressful nature of the pledge period, many pledges formed very close relationships with their big brother or big sister, friendships that would last a Ufetime. Uniting the pledge class was one of the most important goals of any pledge program. This was accomplished through pledge exams, supporting the brother and sisterhoods at intramural games, work parties and pledge projects. " In any pledge class, creating unity with the brotherhood and the pledge class itself is the mam goal. It promotes a stronger sense of brotherhood, " Phi Kappa Tau Jay Draism said. Pi Kappa Phi pledges strongly believed in supportingtheir fraternity ' s sports teams. Pledges and brothers cheered the football team to a 13-12 victory over rival Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Photo by Zulina Crespo SecondMo ms nt Taking Over ?CTiere Mom Left Off .i Leaving home for college was a frightening time for most students. Not only were there the adjustments to new classes but also, for many, a completely new environment altogether. Students were confronted with doing their own laundry, cooking their own meals and paying their own bills. All of a sudden Mom and Dad were not in the next room but instead m the next state. However, some were never without a mother ' s protection. Several fraternity and sorority houses were equipped with a new mother who took care of the things that mom always did. " I did a lot of the same things that moms do, " Carol Fewell, house mother at Zeta Tau Alpha, said. " I liked the fact that I was needed. 1 cannot imagine doing anything else. " Madeline Dickinson kept everything running smoothly at the Kappa Kappa Gamma house. Things did get hectic sometimes though, especially when planning dinner for 150 people. " She was always there for us, just like a regular mom, " Ellen Rou, Kappa Kappa Gamma sister, said. " Ms. Dickinson was a very supportive person for us to have around. " Ms. Dickinson planned menus, paid bills. and made sure everything was working properly. " I bought an enormous amount of groceries, " she said, m addition to regular deliveries from suppliers. " My biggest duty was to feed the boys because you know how much boys like to eat, " Phyllis Spachner, the Sigma Phi Epsilon house mother, said. Although her favorite thing to do was to plan the food for socials, Mrs. Spachner developed a good rapport with the members of Sigma Phi Epsilon and liked the boys a great deal. " It was very similar By Carol Dejoseph to raising my two sons, " she said. For many fraternity and sorority members, their first year at college was the first they have ever lived away from home. Often they needed someone to turn to for advice, an adult who not only cared about them but also cared about their brother or sisterhood. " I am a mother to everybody and see that everything is done properly, " Norme Murphy, Kappa Delta house mother, said. " When my husband died, I was lonesome, but here you are never alone. " " Ifthe girls wanted to share with me, then I was there for them, " Edith Lovas, Sigma Kappa house mother, said. Photo by Bill Garrett Keeping the house grounds in order.

" Jeff Hopkins, vice president of correspondence, said. Greeks - 185 Second Moms (Continued) Martha E. Wood claimed that house mothers for fraternities are much different than for sororities. She was a house mother for over 20 years, but this year at the Lambda Chi Alpha house was her last. " You have to love the boys and the job to do it for more than 20 years. 1 wish I never had to leave but my health is forcing me, " she said. In 1976, Ms. Zeta Tau Alpha house mom Carol Fewell discusses plans for rush with president Brenda Gibala. Ms Fewell enjoyed helping the girls solve their problems. Kappa Delta house mom Norine Murphy has held the position for seven years. " I watch over some beautiful girls, " she said. Wood was the Lambda Chi Alpha National House Mother. " It was probably the nicest thing that ever happened to me, " she said. Being a house mother at a sorority or fraternity was indeed a challenge to these women, but they loved their work and were loved by the house members. The times spent with the fraternity and sorority members not only reminded them of rearing their own children but also gave them a chance to have a positive effect on the lives of many young people. " I took care of this house just like I took care of my own home, " Chris Herrington, Delta Delta Delta house mother, said. " The girls were sweet and beautiful. I had some wonderful times with them.

Though being m a sorority had its advantages, the sorority could find itself at a disadvantage for one reason or another. With the consensus or nonexistence of active sisters, a local chapter can be closed. Sigma Gamma Rho and Sigma Sigma Sigma were two sororities that were faced with this predicament. However, within the last two years, these sororities had been reactivated through the steadfast persistance of a few interested females. The Rho Chapter of Tri Sigma was reactivated m the fall 1991. Tri Sigma was originally founded at Longwood College m Virginia with the idea of creating a social society for women in education. Eventually, chapters sprouted all over the United States and Tri Sigma made its way to the university m 1920. Tri Sigma enjoyed 70 prosperous years before It closed m Fall of 1990. The sisters of Tn Sigma decided that in was m the best interest of the sorority to close the chapter because of lack of membership and unity. However, after nearly a year of planning, the Rho Chapter began the year with new sisters that described Tri Sigma as " exhilarting! " " There is so much to do and learn. There are so many friends that I ' ve made. It ' s fun and friendship that covers the whole realm of things, " president Melodie Brosious said. Prosperity served as the spark in rekindling yet another sorority at the university. In the essence of true sisterhood and unity, the essentials for building a strong foundation, the Epsilon Delta Chapter of By Jenise Spurlin Sigma Gamma Rho resurfaced. Sigma Gamma Rho was founded on November 12, 1922 at Butler College in Indianapolis, Indiana. The sorority was formed m the tradition of committment to higher education and scholarship. Sigma Gamma Rho was one of the first black sororities to start a chapter at a predominantly white university, It was not until November of 1991 that a Sigma Gamma Rho chapter was formed at the university. The local chapter had been closed in Fall 1989 due to lack of active members.

Forking lawns, toilet papering houses, having scavenger hunts and moving house letters occurred frequently. Members viewed the pranks as outlets for entertainment and fellowship. However, relatively few incidents of campus mischief happened this year. The " Animal House " image seemed to have died. " Toilet papering houses is a waste economically and environ- mentally, " Pi Kappa Phi President Clarke Cooper said. Although Sigma Alpha Epsilon had not participated m any of the An Endangered Species? campus mischief. President Bart Abstem presented a differing view. He viewed harmless pranks as a " fun activity which promotes unity throughout the brotherhood. " Many targeted fraternal symbols for pranks. Although some Greek organizations expected the temporary annoyance, these pranks offended others. Sigma Alpha Epsilon actually encouraged pranks on their own lion statue. SAE extended formal challenges to specific sororities to paint their symbol and write their letters on the lion. If a sorority succeeded, the fraternity hosted a social function for them. However, a sorority sister lost a lock of hair if the escapade failed. Campus marking m the form of stenciling and painting the tunnel that ser ' es as the Tennessee Street underpass has been a tradition for many years. Yet, again, this seemed to be waning to some extent as well. Abstein said that the Interfraternity Council told them to stop about two years ago and they did. " It IS a lot of work for them. It would be better if they (Greeks) would pick one place and do it there, but It IS not my decision to By 5C .K. Wilson make, " Kenneth Davis in the paint shop of the physical plant said. Alan Baca, who was m charge of grounds and landscaping explained the process of removing the letters. If they were lucky, they would only have to pour a special solution on the letters, but usually this was not the case. Generally, sandblasting was the procedure used in the end to remove the markings. " Asignihcantsum of resources has gone to cleaning up behind them, " Baca said. " We do not look favorably upon stenciling and painting, " associate director of the physical plant John Staron said, in accordance with Baca. OM Founded: 1852 Colors: Rose and White Chapter: Alpha Epsilon Phi Mu ' s philanthropies were Project Hope and the Children ' s Miracle Network. Money was raised through hosting Grand Slam where fraternities competed m a baseball tournament, field events and an All-American Male pageant. For Homecoming, OM was paired with TKE and OA0 with a theme of commercials. The skit was a commercial break during a " Jeopardy " episode including " Life Call, " (what every football team needs when playing the Sitting on the Phi Mu front porch, sisters Carri Robbins and Stephanie Cosby talk and enjoy the spring weather after dinner at the house.

They also had a Halloween Monster Bash with Zn and a Graffiti social with ZX in addition to the pledge and senior formals. OM received the award for The Best Pledge Program from the Panhellenic Council. In addition, they placed 1st overall in Zn Tiger Toss and won the Spirit Award.

In addition to playmgbasketball, football, swimming, golf, softball and cross country, OM placed 1st m bowling and 3rd in soccer. Greeks- 199 Mischief (Continued) The stenciling oi palm trees especially bothers him because that can cause harm to the tree by allowing fungus to grow. It can even lead to the death of the tree. Staron wishes that the sororities and fraternities would find other ways to be expressive . " Stenciling has been reduced greatly m the past couple of years, however, we do have to send people out and it does cost money, " Staron said. As a whole, the Greek community has been down on campus mischief. " Fraternities and sororities respect each other ' s properties more now than in the old days, however, they still believe m keeping it fun, " IFC president Mike Haggard said. The trends seemed to indicate a decline of the inclusion of pranks among the list of popular Greek traditions. During early spring Chi Omega was the victim of toilet papering for two weeks in a row. " Toilet papering houses is a waste economically and environmentally, " Pi Kappa Phi Apparently these acts were viewed as having a negative impact on the campus. " If we find something negative, we try to change it or make it better, " President of Panhellenic Renee Poklemba said. Miriam Nicholas, the Panhellenic adviser, maintained that m recent years, Greek organizations were turning " back to basics, " which meant more emphasis on ritual, philanthropy, and histoiy. Many who have gone Greek stress the tradition of philanthropy as being a key aspect of strength of the fraternal groups. It was emphasized That this custom " lets the community know that the sororities are not just for the social aspect. They are also here for the community, " Poklemba said. Even the social tradition enhanced the Greek experience. It created a unity among the fraternities and sororities. " Some may say that traditions are a waste of time, which is not the case, " Poklemba said. Rituals and customs allowed the individual to identify strongly with their organization. Traditions were what separated a fraternal group from a club.

" The Hazing Policy outlined 34 offenses which were considered to be violations of a person ' s well being. While most ol these offenses were not a problem on campus, fraternity pledges participating m " Hell Week " were a common sight near the end of the semester. While hazing violations on campus were punishable by anything from a written reprimand to termination of a fraternity ' s local charter, the policy was designed to be more of a limiting measure than something to abolish forced activities altogether. " The definition of hazing has changed greatly. Under the new guidelines, anything that makes a pledge feel different than an active is considered hazing. Traditional activities that are not harmful, such as active interviews, have helped pledges get to know one another. Many of these are now considered hazing and have been banned, " Pi Beta Phi Jennifer O ' Neil said. Every hazing complaint was invest- igated by the Judicial Board . However, m the interests of fairness, it was impossible to crack down on fraternities when forced activities were a part of nearly every social, professional and civic organization m existence. " By these guidelines, they hazed me in Boy Scouts when they made me learn to tie a square knot. Nothing I had to do was really uncalled for or embarrassing, " Pi Kappa Phi Paul Hmds said.

Finally, the IFC was named the Overall Outstanding Interfraternity Council in the Southeast, competing against SEC rivals Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Auburn. For a fraternity system only 43 years old, being named the best of 80 institutions in 11 states was quite an accomplishment. They were also the only IFC to place in more than one category, not to mention winning two of them. The IFC Executive Board was proud of the fraternity system and its accomplishments, but at the same time members realized the challenges that lay ahead, and " eagerly anticipated dealing with these issues and their eventual success, " Haggard said. - Greeks - 203 With over 200 different campus organizations, finding a group to suit our interests was not difficult. Organizations from every field existed. Those of us who couldn ' t find what we were looking for merely created it. These organizations provided us with a chance to find people with common interests, develop new ones and meet new friends. Each group managed to bring groups of the campus a little closer together through meetings, service projects and activi- ties. They helped to provide a balance between all of the pressures of university life. Many organizations such as Scalphunters, Lady Scalp- hunters and Student Alumni Foundation gave us an opportu- nity to learn more about the university and do something for it. Others such as the Tallahassee Jugglers Club and Shuttle Heritage gave us a chance to relax and blow off steam.

Photo by Zulma Crespo Section Editors: Tradition Establishing a tradition takes more than just time. It takes constructive and progressive change. The yearbook program at the university has endured both. The university, then known as the Seminary West of the Suannee, published it ' s first yearbook, the Argo, in 1900. When the Seminary became a women ' s college, the yearbook was renamed Flastacovjo, an acronym for Florida State College for Women, in 1909. The Flastacowo was the longest-running yearbook in the universitiy ' s history. It was published for 38 years. In 1948, that long-standing tradition took a turn. The Florida State College for Women went coeducational and became the Florida State University. As a result, the Tally-Ho was published. In it ' s 25 years of publication it became an award- winning yearbook. However, reaction to a controversial edition eventually killed the program. Six years later, another book, renamed once again, struggled into existence. Artifacts, as it was called, was published four times in the 1980 ' s. Disatisfied with Artifacts, the staff renamed the next edition. It was to be called the Renegade. Its first edition covered the 1987-88 academic year. " Those of us involved with putting the yearbook out this year knew that ours would be a task fought with problems. We knew there were some wary of ' the yearbook effort, ' but we also knew we could do it — no matter what the odds. We were like rebels — or more appropriately — like renegades... We also changed the name to the Renegade after a great horse who became a great tradition here at FSU. That tradition has been around for ten years now, and it is our desire that ours will be a tradition that experiences at least the same longevity, and becomes just as popular as the horse bearing the same name, " the book stated. The Renegade, m that same spirit, was published consistently since that year and in only five editions, brought itself from a respectable memory gatherer to an award-winning collegiate yearbook. The 1991 edition won Best of Show at the Associated Collegiate Press Convention and also received the " Pulitzer " of yearbook awards, The Pacemaker. When Renegade advis er Rebecca Rayburn presented the idea of reviving the yearbook program, she was told she was crazy. She didn ' t understand why. Her philosophy was that, " When you have the high quality of students we have at FSU, the quality programs and exciting changes that surround a university of this caliber, stories fall on your doorstep. It just follows that there ought to be students who are more than capable of recording that. A yearbook ought to be a given. " A 1990 issue of Florida State Magazine,in an article entitled " Death of a Yearbook, " suggested that " pompand circumstance, highly-structured curricula and patriotism, " all lost with the demise of Tally Ho, could be found at FSU again and a new yearbook called Renegade was also rising from the ashes.

Dr. Don Rapp was the faculty sponsor of what was now called the Tallahassee Jugglers Club. This organization was made up of a variety of people. Some were members of the Flying High Circus, others were average students and some were not students at all. The club was formed for the pure enjoyment of juggling. " Jugg- ling is a way to relax, " Eddie Brigman said. Most clubs had a mascot or symbol. The Tallahassee Jugglers Club, however, may have had the most unique mascot. A certain skinny- legged flamingo represented the group. His name was Frank Lloyd Emerson McGillicuddy. Members of the club practiced weekly on the Union Green. Although they were not required to attend practice, they enjoyed the fellowship. Their ability level ranged from beginner to serious amateur to professional entertainer. A wide variety of juggling equipment was provided for members. There was no membership fee and visitors were ' Juggling is an obses- sion, once you master one aspect, you want to master another. " Tim Smith encouraged to watch the practices. " Juggling is an obsession because once you master one aspect of it, you want to master another, more complex aspect. It ' s a chain reaction that is unending, " Tim Smith said. All the jugglers ' practices paid off on performance days. Many times the club performed at charitable events at no cost. They also performed at promotions and publicity events for a fee. Enjoyment was the key to every event. If a good time was to be had, the jugglers were there. They of- fered demonstrations and teaching clinics also. Their biggest event was the annual April Fools Juggling Festival. This free event consisted of jugglers from all over the southeast who gathered for competitions, shows and teaching clinics. Juggling was a science which involved throwing balls, pins, flaming objects and more. This activity was a great way to alleviate stress. Joining The Tallahassee Jugglers Club was one of the best ways to become involved on campus. By Donna Davis - Organizations - 2 1 1 Sobriety A university is a center for academic achievement and intellectual enrichment. It was a melting pe t for people of many different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and is thus a grand center for socialization. One of the biggest social pastimes on a college campus, to provide a release from the pressures of academic study, ff was partying. It combined good friends, good fun, and of course, to add a little pizzaz to the evening, alcohol. Alcohol was a prevalent part of our society and the single best way to minimize the possibility of the problem was to simply be responsible and knowledgeable about drinking. BACCHUS, Boost Alcohol Conciousness Concerning the Health of University Students, was a college based national alcohol abuse prevention program that was minimizing alcohol ' s harmful effects through education. A BACCHUS chapter was started at this university in 1982. It was a student based group for individual awareness that aided in promoting campus awareness on alcohol. The students played a signihcant 212 - Organizations - There is a great need for alcohol awareness, especially among young adults, Ms. Mable role in encouraging their peers to develop positive habits and attitudes toward alcohol use. " While illicit drug use is increasing, so is alcohol abuse. There is a great need for alcohol awareness, especially among young adults, " advisor Ms. Mable said. Unfortunately, not only did some students not know where to get alcohol awareness information, some weren ' t even familiar with the purpose of BACCHUS, the main supplier of that information on campus. " BACCHUS does not condone or condemn the drinking of alcohol. BACCHUS educated students on our campus in areas of alcohol awareness ranging from learning to drink in moderation, to detecting when and how to assist someone who has had too much to drmk, " Alex Alemen said. One of the most popular events BACCHUS had was the week long festivities during the National Campus Drug and Alcohol Awareness Week. There was plenty of cotton candy, mock drinks, food, prizes and useful information.

Students were ranked ranging from white belt, to green belt, to brown belt, to black belt. The class taught them how to improve their skills and increase their ranks. " In some classes you learn things, but can never put it to use. In this class you learn how to apply techniques to street situations, " Sam Shoo said. The Cuong Nhu Martial Arts Club directly influenced the lives of every member.

The high school to college transition was made a little easier by the Semmole Ambassadors. Often times, a Seminole Ambassador helped prospective students with the decision of whether or not to attend Florida State ii University. Seminole Ambassadors was a student organ- ization sponsored by the Admissions Office. The diverse membership of the club offered a voice of experience to students who were interested m attending the university. By visiting high schools, assisting the Admissions Office with tours every week, and by simply being student liaisons between the university and the community, Seminole Ambassadors extended the spirit that was alive on campus out to others m the hopes of making them become Semmoles. " Attending Florida State University was one of the best decisions I could have ever made, and I like to see other people make that same wise decision, " John Bozman said.

Most of us are part of clubs and organizations, or perhaps even ofhcers of these groups, to improve our resumes. Circle K was not one of these organizations. Instead, this organization was devoted to serving the community. Circle K started through the Kiwanis club. Both organizations were part of the K Family which con- sisted of the Build- ers for junior high, Key Club for high school, Circle K for college students, Aktion for disabled persons and Kiwanis for the professional level. The mam em- phasis of each was ser ' ice. Circle K participated m nearly every- thing that dealt with community service. At the " Ver ' Special Arts Festival, " in which elementary school children displayed their art, they helped maintain order. The group built houses for the Tallahassee Housing Foundation. They were asked to help publicize the community wide Soviet Re- public Relief Drive which sent food and medicine to the new Soviet Republics. Circle K members also participated m Drug Awareness Week, Habitat for Humanity, ' ' Most importantly, the people in the organiza- tion accept people just the way they are, ' Laura Smith and a clean -up at the St. Marks Wildlife Reservation. The community knew them and reached out to them. One important community event they were involved m was a pet adoption program. They worked with the Humane Society and the Animal Shelter on this project. Once a month, foster parents of pets brought ani- mals in and a pet adoption was held. Perhaps the most influential project Circle K sponsored was visiting children at the Lighthouse Children ' s Center. This was a center for children from diverse backgrounds who suffered from, a variety of problems. The children, ranging m age from prekmdergarten through high school , were from many parts of Florida and other states. They attended school and lived at the center. At the center, each holiday was ac- companied by the Circle K members. The local Kiwanis club held a Thanksgiving dinner, with the help of Circle K, m the gym at the Lighthouse Children ' s Center. Christmas breakfast was another event at the center. At this breakfast, presents were given to each child. The Circle K students Organizations - 219 TOUCHING HEARTS (continued) exchanged addresses with ihe chil- dren. The children became very attached to their visitors. " The Lighthouse Children ' s Center was one of our favorite projects, " Marae Bachus, Circle K member, said. Valentine ' s Day was known all over the world as the day designated for people to tell each other how much they were loved. Circle K did an excellent job of expressing this not only to the children at the center, but also the pediatric ward at Tallahassee Memorial Regional Medical Center. The students brought baskets of candy and cards to the hospital patients. Likewise, they brought candy and person- alized cards to the children at the center. The children at the center visited and played with the Circle K members. When it was time to leave, the children sang two songs to express their thanks, " Circle K can really make a leader out of someone. Being a part of this makes me feel very needed. Most importantly, the people in the organization accept people just the way they are, " Laura Smith, a past president of Circle K, said. Weekly meetings were held to dis- cuss events and projects. People who were interested injommg Circle K were welcome to attend meetings and see what it was all about. Interested students were invited to take the initiative andjom the group. There were only a few requirements. These con- sisted of annual dues, participation in at least two service projects, two inner club activities and five meetings. Initiation was held every spring. The group attended an international convention of Circle K members in Balti- more, Maryland. At this convention. Inter- national Circle K ofhcers were elected. Speakers such as Bill Hoogerterp were also featured. Stacy Shively ' s most memorable mo- ment of the convention was when Bill Hoogerterp said, " The youth of today are the future of tomorrow - only if we procras- tinate. " Mr. Hoogerterp enforced Circle K ' s desire to take part m the lives of young people. The Lighthouse Children ' s Center IS the primary benehciary of their help toward youth. The Circle K organization grew considerably. Unselhsh duties was their mam focus. The future is brighter because of this organization. By Donna Davis russling around in the grass is the perfect way to spend Valentine ' s Day for people of all ages. These children from the Lighthouse Children ' s Center are celebrating a beautiful day with a visit from Circle K. 220 - Organizatious rhe older boys help the younger boys in outside games, but getting a bit too rough is sometimes a problem.

P ' winging on the trapeze, biking on Jk _ the tight rope and roller skating like figure skaters were all a part of a circus show and were all a part of the Flying High Circus. The Flying High Circus travelled to shows all over the state of Florida and held their annual Home Show m April. Home Show was a time to show off their talent. Many students and fami- lies m the commu- nity came to see the performance. Approx- imately 100 people were on the circus team. They were split up into dif- ferent groups and performed a variety of acts. The well-renowned Flying Semmoles flew on the trapeze and made the audience gasp.

Every sum- mer for the past thirty years, circus students have gone to Calloway Gardens. This was the place where different families came and stayed for a week at a time throughout the summer. The circus people acted as recreation counsel- ors during the day and performers at night. They performed eight shows per week. The counselors also taught the kids ages seven and up how to do cir- cus acts. Older kids, age 16 and up were taught more complex acts. " Calloway is a training ground for us. The group that goes there is the core group for road shows m the fall. Then we build off that, " Speedy Burroughs, assistant circus director, said. The performers were a part of the only collegiate circus show. The circus was founded in 1947 byjack Haskins as a means of providing a co-ed activity for the newly inte- grated university, (formerly Florida State Col- lege for Women).

Moreover, ULS has pkiyed a very important educational role introducing the rest of the students with Latino issues. People from Latin American descent represented the second largest minority group m the United States. However, negative stereotypes about Latin America and Latinos persisted. In this context, the United Latin Society, considered it essential to show the richness of their heritage to all the different communities that coexisted in the United States. The activities aimed to make sure that others had the opportunity to understand Latin Americans. Communication and dialogue among all minority groups was important. " The United Latin Society is helpful in a campus that has such a wide diversity of cultures, " Carlos Porcell said. Latinos were passionate people.

" We can proudly say that our parties represent one of the most integrated social gatherings on this campus, " Eiliana Montero said. People from all ethnic back- grounds felt at home at Latin parties, and there was no doubt why when one re- alized this was pre- cisely what Latinos were, a mixture of cultures and races. Interaction among Latinos at social gatherings was a popular benefit of ULS. The first ULS annual banquet in spring 1991 included a delicious array of Latin dishes, followed by a dance with Salsa Florida. Other projects involved vis- its of top Latino scholars, like Dr. Rodolfo de la Garza, Chair of the Inter-University Program for Latino Research and Dr. Martha Adelia Montero from Harvard University as well as Latin American him festivals.

" This was the motto for the Student Government Association (SGA). Serving the entire student body required a variety of agencies and student services. Led by Brian G. Philpot, SGA kept these agencies going and accomphshed new things f f as well. SGA was divided into three branches. First was the Executive Branch, made up of the executive cabinet, support offices, SGA agencies and afhliated projects, along with the student body president and vice president. The Legislative Branch was Student Senate, which contained hve groups within itself. The Supreme Court and Lower Court made up the third branch, the Judicial Branch. Together these three branches controlled $4.5 million of student fees Seven bureaus provided services for many different things. The Designated Driver Program provided necessary transportation to intoxicated individuals. Buying and selling books was made easy with the Info-Quest Service. Students would have to sum up student government as dynamic, ' Ryan Orner were no longer afraid to go outside at night because of the Student Alert Force Escort (SAFE).

Off Campus Housing provided a great help to students looking for a new home, or simply having problems with the one they Each bureau served many were m students " The agencies and bureaus are open to every student at FSU. If we can ' t help you, we know who can. Students need to use their A and S fees (activities and services) and take interest m how their money is being spent, " Director of Off Campus Housing Christopher Zigmond said. Seven agencies also ser ' ed students m need. The Black Student Union provided panel discussions, distinguished lecturers, campus and community interaction and community service. The oldest SGA agency, the Center for Participant Educa- 0t - Organizations - 235 Taking Action (continued) (CPE), offered free classes, speakers, and alternative films. Graduate Students United served graduate students. Traditional ideas were presented by the Institute for Conservative Studies. The Inter-Residence Hall Council serv ' ed every student who lived on campus. Informing and serving students with Jewish interests was the purpose of the Jewish Student Union. The Women ' s Center served women of any background and heritage who needed support. Each of these agencies reached out to the students to let them know they were welcome here. " The purpose of Special Projects of SGA is to have educational, yet entertaining events for the students of FSU, such as the Back to School Bash, Pep Rally, Homecoming Jam Concert, Homcommg Carnival, and Safer Sex Week, " Special Projects Coordinator Steve Cook said. Many people ranging from Greek to Pan Greek to independent, made up the Student Government Association. Anyone who was willing to make a difference on campus was welcome. " I would have to sum up Student Government as dynamic, which means ' tending toward change of productive activity. ' This is accurate not only in the change m people involved from year to year, but also in that, those who are involved are so because they can affect positive change. It is people with ideas, enthusiasm, and a committment to making Florida State better that make Student Government what is it, " Ryan Orner, a student senator said.

Organizations - 1.1 1 Dimension M9 oldly going where no club had gone ■LP before, the Shuttle Heritage club was established on campus. The club was the local chapter of Starfleet, the official international Star Trek fan club. Starfleet launched the club as a Shuttle June 27. In order to become a Shuttle, the club had to meet several Starfleet membership requirements. They had to have at least five active Starfleet members and the captain and first ofhcer of the club were required to pass a Starfleet entrance examination. But being able " We want to provide the Star Trek reality. They just work at bettering themselves. " John Reddick Getting members for the new club was difficult at first. But as soon as Stewart ran an ad m the CPE catalog, things picked up. But they got their biggest response from an ad that ran during an episode of " Star Trek: The Next Generation. " Immediately after that ad Stewart received over 100 calls from interested fans. The club was commissioned the U.S.S. Khai Tam (Viet- namese for braveheart) at an Orlando convention m the spring. The activities of Shuttle Heritage were not limited to watching Star to meet those requirements was a difficult Trek and attending con-ventions. They had task. Founder and captain of the club a float m the Home-coming parade and Sharon K. Stewart (no relation) took the club from just an idea at a Trek convention to a full fledged, commissioned starship. Being commissioned meant that the club was fully recognized by Starfleet as a chapter member. " At a convention m April of ' 90, 1 asked them (Starfleet) if there was a club in my area. They said there wasn ' t so why didn ' t I start my own. So I did and now I ended up being the Regional Shuttle Commander for four states, " Captain Stewart said. participated m several community service projects, including the March of Dimes WalkAmenca. Community service was one of the key roles of the club. " " We want to provide the Star Trek reality. They don ' t want for anything - they just work at bettering themselves.

The club donned their present name m 1937, when the group mitiated the first group of " Minnows " (first year swimmers). They presented striking demonstrations to music which began the Tarpon Club ' s pioneer work in water ballet. During the fifties and sixties. Tarpons were involved with the International Academy of Aquatic Art due to the efforts of sponsor Gynise Smith. In 1967, a Class Honor was awarded to the Tarpon Club composition " A Minstrel, " a routine which is now performed every fall by the new Minnow class as part of their initiation requirements. In 1973, the club joined NICA, the National Institute for Creative Aquatics, but the swimmers remained performance - oriented until 1989 when a group of Tarpons attended the U.S. Synchronized Swimming Collegiate National Competition in Orlando. There, the team routine won sixth place and received the Fourth Overall High Point " It ' s a lot of hard work, but our job is to make it look easy ' Kitty Peters Trophy, which was almost unheard of for a team which had never competed on the national level. Membership m Tarpons was open to anyone who enjoyed swimming, had basic skills and potential for development m synchro. In the fall, members recruited interested swimmers m a week-long training session during which new girls met members, watched homeshow videos, and were coached by members m four simple figures required for try- outs. Once accepted, the new Minnows practiced alongside the Tarpons on weeknights, training much as a swim team would to build endurance and strength . One night a week was reserved as Minnow Night, which was a workout and skill development session coached by the Minnow Trainer, who is elected by the club each year. " Minnow Night is a good time for all the minnows to get together without the pressure of the more experienced Tarpons, " Karen Deck, vice president of the Minnow class, said. Though supporterd by Student - Organizations - 241 PWI Ji Hooked on Synchro (Continued) Government, the Tarpon Club also sponsored a concess ion booth m Doak Campbell Stadium with the Tallahassee sermas, the city ' s junior synchronized swim team, to raise money for the annual homeshow. In December, the club presented a Christmas show called, " Silent Stars Go By, " and collected canned foods for ECHO Ministries. Holiday presentations were done occasionally, but generally had fewer compositions and were of a smaller scale than the Annual Homeshows. Tarpons and Minnows spent from January to March choreographing and rehearsing routines for the Homeshow. The theme was chosen by the entire club, and girls who wanted to choreograph a routine choose music m keeping with the theme. Themes ranged from " Figuratively Speaking, " to " Sync Into The ' 90 ' s, " swimmmg to old tunes like " Dancing Cheek to Cheek, " and the popular B -52 s. Choroegraphers were given freedom withm the theme to choose their own style of music, skill level, and number of swimmers m the routine. For the Homeshow, Michelle Rief wrote " Sagittarius, " a ten-person routine to the Beatles ' " Revolution Number 9 " which tells the story of a boy and his struggles to be himself among the pressures of friends, family, and the world. " Choreographing gives me a chance to express myself m a new medium, " Michelle Rief said. Artistic impression and creativity were two areas the club ' s faculty advisor, Alicia Crew, and president, Patricia Ames, encouraged by holding creative workshops throughtout the year. Here, Minnows and Tarpons alike learned to be flexible and openminded, and also learned techniques of expressing their ideas through water ballet. Since the 1989 nationals, several of the club ' s members have been working to develop their competitive skill. President Jennifer Freeman competed m Regionals and attended Olympic Festival, as did 1 989 president Jan Reitzall. The Sennas hosted the 1992 Junior National Synchronized Swimming Competition in Febru ary, and the Tarpons plan to attend Collegiate Nationals in March of 1993. " After Homeshow we start training for Nationals because we ' ll need a good year to bring our skills up to national standards and to perfect any routine we might enter. The judges are really tough, and so is the competition, " Holly Dugan said. Most Tarpon members did not have prior synchro experience, and learned the sport entirely from other experienced swimmers and club members. Synchro, whether for competition or performance, demanded time and practice, like any other sport. " It ' s a lot of hard work, but our job is to make it look easy, " Kitty Fetters said. By Holly Dugan tyling the synchronized moves is a s3 difficuh task to learn. The Tarpons practice as much as 20 hours per week to make their showtime as close to perfect as possible. .- « - ..

The members of the university community were the people that made up the State of Mmd. They kept it functioning and aUve. New faces came and built excitement and old ones moved on and left their legacies and accomplishments behind. The pulse and backbone of the university was controlled and supported by the people. We had the power to make the campus into anything we wanted it to be. When we disap- proved of something we banded together to protest it and when we were pleased with what was happening we gave support. Thousands upon thousands of people made the university the diverse place that it was, with people from every conceiv- able background and culture. We had the opportunity to share and give so much of ourselves to each other through multi-cultural campus pro- grams, lectures and special events. We provided an in- sight to the world through ourselves. With the help of each other, we were able to broaden and strengthen our mindset.

The Florida State University Foundation is a nonprolit tund- raismg corporation supporting quality education and helping meet the increasing need for private hnancial support for academic development of the University. The Foundation seeks support through The Presidents Club, Annual Fund, Eminent Scholars, Named Endov ed Funds, Planned Giving and other programs. The FSU Alumni Association ' s role is to aid, strengthen and expand Florida State University m every proper useful way and to develop, strengthen, and use the bonds of interest, sympathy and affection existing between the University and the alumni. Alumni and friends of Florida State can become members of the Alumni Association by participating m the annual dues or life membership programs. Because intercollegiate athletics receives no state funding, except for a small stipend for women ' s sports, the University must depend on donations from fans and alumni to pay for facilities, equipment and coaching personnel necessary to sustain the high level of competition we now enjoy. About 40% of the total athletic department budget is from Booster ' s contributions.

" It ' s an awakening experience, " Heather McKenna said. Most students had the oppor- tunity of experiencing dormitory Hfe. They tried to move every earthly pos- session they owned into one little room that was shared with at least one roomate. Everybody learned that mom was no longer there to cook, so they had to stock their refrigerator and learn how to cook. Often it was pizza late at night while cramming for a test the next day. Dorm residents stayed up late and hung around with friends on the floor. Often students played pranks on their friends such as putting saran wrap on the toilets, hitting them with shaving cream, etc. It was the time that was spent with their new friends on the floor that helped students through the rough times, as well as the good times. Dorm residents spent holidays and birthdays with their hallmates when they could not spend them vvath their families. The dorm became home for the entire school year so students tried to make the best of it.

Judging by the number of people wearing their letters on campus, one might think a majority of the student body was Greek. A survey designed to find out just how many university students were in fraternities or sororities and how much time was spent at their " houses " provided some interesting results. Out of 100 students, 36 percent were involved in the greek system while 64 percent remained independent. Out of those involved in a fraternity or sorority, only 28 percent lived in their house while a majority of the students, 52 percent, put in up to ten hours a week at the house. Only 20 percent put in over ten hours a week, but did not live in house. " By the time I rushed, I was already living in a dorm so I obviously couldn ' t live in the house. But I try and spend as much time there house as I can, " freshman Steve Crews said. For the most part, fraternities and sororities became a major role in many student ' s hves throughout their univeristy years. " Being in a sorority has opened up many doors for leadership. I have made super friends and long lasting memories, " Amira Rivera said.

How did you ask that awful question? " Mom, Dad, how about $20? " Many parents provided money for expenses like housing, clothes, food, and spending money which made it even harder to ask them for extra money for unplanned expenses, like concerts. Students often went broke and never said anything to their parents - they just waited until the first of the month. " I would rather die than to have to call my parents and ask for more money, " said John Mosely. Many students agreed that it was difficult to ask that horrible question. But once it was asked, parents usually came through for their kids. Learning to handle money and finances was one of the biggest challenges for students. Parents often realized this and worked with their child, helping them to deal with bills and costs they never thought about. Learning how to spend money wisely was hard for students, but vidth parents lending a hand and usually some cash, students learned the value of the dollar because they did not always have it in their pocket.

It was not an uncommon one. Fmding a space became a major ordeal before each class. Out of 100 students sur ' eyed, 89 had cars with them at school. The parkmg facilities were so limited on campus that many found " creative parking " more enjoyable and less time consuming. Ever) ' once in a while, one would see a car parked on a very convenient spot of grass. Most students felt that the inconvenience of a ticket was more worthv hile than spending hours looking for a vacant space. Thirty-six of 100 students received 1-2 tickets per semester and 22 of 100 received 3 or more. One possible source of laxity towards parking tickets was the fact that most tickets issued on campus to cars with parking permits were only five dollars. The past year saw the rules and regulations of parking change. The hours of ticketing were extended to 10:30 p.m. and ticketing started at 7:30 a.m. Many underclassmen could not park on campus between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., depending on the type of parking sticker they purchased. " Some mornings it ' s a lot easier to pay five dollars for a parking ticket than to get up out of bed and move my car, " Tricia Dufrates said. - Molly McDonald Another victim falls as a TPD officer issues yet another ticket to a student ' s car on Park Avenue.

Students used the phone instead of their feet, simply because it was easier to do. The only hard part was to write that check to the phone company. Giving up the money was hard, but figuring out what you were being charged for was even harder. A service charge, a fee for this, a fee for that, what did it all mean? The most unbelievable part though was finding out how much they were charging you for calling home or even local calls. A dollar here, tv ' enty cents there... all adding up to $20, if not $200. It seemed like you only called mom and dad once or twice. And what about friends at home, keeping in touch was important , but it definitely became costly. " If I did not have a phone, I would not keep in touch with anyone because I hate to write letters. It ' s so much easier to just pick up the phone and call than write, " said Jessica Write. Anyone with a phone had the accompanying problem of the PHONE BILL, but what would students have done without the phone? Probably created a lot of business for the post office.

Many students, especially freshmen, felt the need to make weekend trips home. Being away at school was fun and exciting, no curfews, no rules -pure freedom, but after being at school for a while students began to feel the need to pick up and go home for the weekend. It was nice to see old friends and family. Sleeping in one ' s own bed was a comfortable feeling, even if it was only for a couple nights. " Going home for the weekend is nice because you get a break from the usual crowd and routine, " said Sandy Miller. Although going home for the weekend was fun, it was exhausting as well. It was hard to fit in everything one wanted to do while they were home. So many friends to see, so many relatives to visit, and so many places to go and all in only two or three days. There never seemed to be enough time before it was time to hop in the car and make way back to school. Although they were short, weekend trips home made school a little easier .

" If 1 didn ' t have the library my .P. A. would be nonexistent, " Dana illiams said. Those who studied could sually rely on the library as a quiet temative to the noisy dorm or neighbors ho wouldn ' t turn down their radio. The two most common studying fuges were Strozier and Dirac libraries, ' ' ith late hours almost ever) ' night the 3rary was always home to students arnmg the midnight oil. The busiest time the year for the libraries, was of course, :am week. Both libraries were packed itil closing time each night. A survey showed that students did use the library frequently not only for a source of information, but also for a quiet place to study. Sometimes studying on Landis Green or in dorm study rooms was just too distracting and the library provided the perfect, no stimulation, studying environment. There were those who were the exception. " I hate studying so 1 obviously spend little time at the hbrary, " Gene Philhps said. Whether people spent a lot of time at Strozier library or Dirac Science libraiy, both facilities provided excellent resources as well as a nice quiet place to study. - Knstm Huckabay Senior Serina Irwin reaches for a book in to aid her in finishing the research for an Art History paper in Strozier Library.

Students seemed to need more and more as the days went by. They found out that there were many expenses involved in entering college. One of these major expenses was buying books for each of their classes. The number of books for classes ranged anywhere from to zero to more than ten. Though some books were not needed students bought them anyway, just to be safe. Professors would often announce that they just weren ' t going to use certain texts. Of one hundred students who were asked how much money they spent on books, the average students spent between $150-200 each semester. To cut their book costs students usually searched for used books, but those went fast and they found themselves forced into buying a $75 new book instead of a $35 used edition. The comforting thought through ail of this was that once the class was over, they could usually sell their books back. However, sometimes the books were non-returnable because they became old editions and were not being used the next year. Most of the time a student could get at least a quarter to half the cost of the books back when they returned them.

An athletic fee was proposed to help alleviate the problem of scalping tickets; hovv ever, many students were against the proposed fee and felt fairly good about the way student tickets were handled. Student tickets were distributed in this manner. A book of coupons was made available to students for both football and basketball seasons at the beginning of the fall semester. By buying a book of coupons, the student became eligible to redeem the coupon for a ticket to the noted game (i.e. the coupon read " Game 6 Miami Nov. 16, 199r ' -the student could take the coupon to the ticket office and receive a ticket for the Miami game with an assigned seat). The coupon book for football was $55 for six games and basketball was $75 for 15 games. Since football had been more popular in the past among students (in a poll taken 76 out of 100 students bought the football coupon package, whereas only 14 of 100 students purchased the basketball package), purchasing individual tickets was hard unless you knew someone v ith a coupon they were willing to give you. Basketball tickets could, however, be purchased on an individual basis. Although not many students bought season bas- ketball tickets, the Civic Center always seemed to be full. The crowd watches as Sam Cassell decides whether to pass the ball or not.

No matter what time of the day, most students could always manage to eat something, whether they were hungry or not. But some eating habits proved to be costly and most were forced to find a more economic way of keeping their stomachs full. One of the most popular means was " all you can eat " specials. Local restaurants catered to students economic needs by providing specials to lure them in. Places such as Ouy-Lin and the Armadillo Cafe ran daily specials. For students that couldn ' t get off campus for a bite to eat there were five different places to eat on campus. The Club Downunder, Wild Pizza, Trading Post, Golden Key and the Union Cafeteria. The restaurants, run by Marriott, provided affordable and convenient meals, though some still preferred to go off campus. " I prefer the variety that most fast-food places off campus have, and there ' s so many places right next to the Union that I don ' t mind walking there, " Doug Tucci said.

Mail was one of the high points for on campus students when visiting the union. Students checked their mailboxes constantly, looking for something, anything, even junk mail. " It ' s always nice to get a lett er from someone, even if its just a short note. Writing on the other hand is the hard part. I can ' t seem to find enough time to sit down and write a litter much less a note, " Heather Anderson said. Many students agreed with Anderson saying they received more letters than they vwote . They were often seen sitting in the Union Green reading their newly received mail, but few were seen writing back. Thanks to loved ones and friends and even Publishers Clearing house, students received mail constantly. Though not all students cherished just any mail, the post office floor was often a sea of unwanted flyers or cards. " It ' s always nice to get a letter from a friend, especially when you ' ve had a bad day or you just found out your test grade. They help to pick you up, " Jay Monroe said. Letters vmtten and received made long semesters easier to bear and provided a pick-me-up for many students.

The world was changing so rapidly that we couldn ' t afford to not pay atten- tion. Events that were occurring thousands of miles away were directly effecting us. The hostages were freed, Yugoslavia was torn apart by civil war, Clarence Thomas was appointed to the Supreme Court and William Kennedy Smith was put on trial for rape. Even Tallahassee could not escape the global spotlight, with marches to the capitol to protest budget cuts and visits from presidential hopefuls. Whether we wanted to be or not, we were part of what was going on around us. All these events helped us to gam a better perspective on ourselves and where we fit into things. We were a part of what was happening and had the opportunity to make a difference. Pholo by bill Liarrctl 292 - People EAR IN REVIEW 1 allahassee was certainly not exempt from world events.

Advertisements - 303 NFL Draft Takes Six Seminoles By Joanna Sparkman APRIL - Wiih so much laleni embodied m ihe looiball leam, many believed pro scouts would have iheir hands full scouting athletes from Tallahassee. As it turned out, the NFL dratted five Seminole players. One of the highlights of the draft was the number of juniors drafted. Out of the first 12 picks, six of them were underclassmen. As many expected, the hrst Tribe member to go was junior cornerback puni returner Terrell Buckley. He was the hfth pick m the first round, selected immediately after Heisman Trophy recipient Desniond Howard. Buckley went to the Green Bay Packers, joined by fullback Edgar Bennett m the fourth round. l ' lHiliib Rs.ils In The defense holds off the Michigan Wolverines as quarterback Casey Weldon makes the pass. FloridaState went on to beat Michigan 51- 31. Weldon was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round. Surprisingly, junior tailback Amp Lee went m the second round. After academic problems plagued him, Lee made himself available for the NFL. Many hgured he would not go in the early rounds, saying that he was not a very quick runner. But the San Francisco 49 ' ers liked what they saw in Lee, making him the second Seminole player drafted. Howard Dmkms became the Seminole player from the 1992 draft playing closest to Tallahassee. The Atlanta Falcons chose the talented outside linebacker m the third round. Dinkins joined former Seminole standout Deion Sanders in Atlanta. The team had depth m the quarterback position, and both senior quarterbacks joined the pros. Unexpectedly, Casey Weldon was drafted in the fourth round by the Philadelphia Eagles. Weldon was the 102nd pick and Bennett was 103rd. Many predicted Weldon would go sooner and did not consider Philadelphia as one of the possible teams. The team already had Randall Cunningham andjim McMahon at the quarterback position. Weldon had options, though. The Wmniped Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League were interested, but Weldon said, " As far as Lm concerned, Em a Philadelphia Eagle. " Although he saw limited playing time m the past season, pro scouts liked Brad Johnson ' s size (6 feet, 6 inches) and abiUty. He was drafted in the ninth round, the 227th pick overall, by the Minnesota Vikings. Johnson was the sixth quarterback taken, and was selected three picks before QB Ty A Aase, Rebecca 145 Abbot, BB, 17 Abbot(, Lynda 289 Abdouch.Ann 215 Abele, Lawrence G 67 Abstein, Ban 199 Acock, Dawson 172 Acuna, Rebecca 50 Ad Club 222 Adams, Amy 248 Adams, Heather 226 .Adams, lr ' mg 248 Adams, Jennifer 289 Adler,Jack 179 Agharahimi, Kamran 209 Agliano, Curt 243 Ahnk, Yoon Kyeong 84 Albert.

These players had the option to become free agents as a way of joining the NFL. With so much talent moving up to higher ranks, who did coach Bobby Bowden have left to work with m Tallahassee? Because of the success of the last several recruiting classes, the Tribe still possessed a great amount of talent for the upcoming season. While making a stop m Tampa during his annual " Bobby Bowden Tour, " he commented on the new team. " They ' re are very young and very talented. But there are different degrees of talent. A team has to have experience, maturity and savvy, also. They don ' t have all that yet, but I have confidence they will get it, " Bowden said.

SGA Elections Cut It Close By Denise D ' Angelo MARCH 16 - University students changed their mmds and cast their votes in a new direction. The Monarchy ticket combined Jeanne Belin with star athlete Charlie Ward. The Student Government presidential run-off broke all voter participation records when 6,064 ballots were confirmed. Fifty-seven percent of those votes support the Monarchy party candidates over Seminole party candidates Mat Bahl and Janette Barnelte. " The Semmole party had dominated the Student Govern- ment for the last three years, I ' m happy to see a change in position, " Lance Lumbard, a Marine Biology major said. The first election drew several complaints from students and organizations when several poll sites opened late and one never opened at all. According to Tren Hopkins, the Student Government Supervisor of Elections, the Alumni Village poll could not be opened Because of a shortage of pollworkers. Of the 12 polls, 1 1 were required by SG statutes to be open. The Alumni Village poll was closed over that at the Bobby E. Leach Center because a greater turnout was expected at the fitness center. The Monarch party and Graduate Student United both filed complaints with the Student, Government elections of- fice. SG statutes allowed any student or organization to file a complaint withm 20 days after an election. The run-off election went off almost without a hitch. One pollworker at the Diffenbaugh Building was giving advice to voters. All the workers at the poll were replaced.

II I ' II l V 1 e " w Campus Publications Undergo Changes By Robert Parker JAN . - Greek Life magazine took on a new look. The magazine went from a newsletter format to tabloid size and began to include articles on timely topics such as AIDS and drugs. " We were very pleased with the response we got from the campus community. Changing the format of the magazine made all the difference. We had the chance to dispel many of the stereotypes about the Greek community through the magazine, " Rand Hill, editor in chief, said. The magazine received a hrst place award in the new program category at the Southeastern Interfraternity Conference Leadership Academy in mid-February. February brought a controversy to the steps of the Florida Flambeau. The independent daily newspaper was widely criticized and boycotted by many students, especially m the Greek community. The controversy sprung from a commentary, " Same as it ever was with FSU ' s beauty pageant, " which ran on the front page following the Miss FSU Pageant, sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Order. The article, by contributing writer Mar) ' Jane Ryals, criticized the pageant and Its sponsors. Phrases in the article such as: " The mane judges choose 1 finalists, of which two look vaguely interesting ... The winner is WHITE WHITE WHITE. And I mean WHITE . . . The local sponsors should be proud to uphold such a Madonna-whore performance . . . Keeping alive a tradition of Disney theme park, " outraged a number of students and triggered a flood of letters to the editor. " It was a commentar) ' . It wasn ' t supposed to be an objective, journalistic article. I ' m glad we ran it; it got a lot of letters, " Ron Matus, then Flambeau editor said. The commentary was called " A IDS journalism " by Brett Buell, Kappa Alpha member, professional journalist and former Flambeau staff writer. Many students who were already upset over what they considered to be biased reporting by the Flambeau put out flyers against the newspaper and many Greek houses displayed ann-Flambeau banners. One group of students were so angered Photo by Bill Garrett The Kappa Alpha Theta sorority expresses their sentiments over the coverage of the Miss FSU Pageant in the Florida Flambeau. Many Greeks as well as independents boycotted the paper following a contro- versial, front page commentary. that they started their own " non-biased " newspaper in reaction to the Flambeau.

Verdict Sparks Violence By Robert P arker MAY - Momenis after the six men, six women jury m Ventura County, California passed a not guilty verdict on four Los Angeles police officers, violence erupted. The officers, Laurence Powell, Theodore Briseno, Timothy Wind and Seargenat Stacey Koon were accused of brutally beatingmotonsl Rodney King, The incident was videotaped by a passing motorist. Most people were sure that the 8 1 -second video would be sufftcient evidence to convict the officers. The tape clearly showed the officers beating King repeatedly with their night stick and kicking him. King, a 25-year-old unemployed construction worker led police on a high speed chase around 12:30 a.m. on March 3. When caught. King, who was drunk, refused to cooperate with poUce. The officers stated that they believed that King was under the influence of PCP. The response to that verdict spread well beyond the city of Los Angeles. One person was killed m Las Vegas, poice cars were smashed m Madison, Wisconson and a peaceful rally m Atlanta turned violent. The riots m Los Angeles brough back menTories of the Watts riots of the 1960 ' s. But the violence in Los Angeles was all to new. Dozens of innocent people were brutally murdered for no apparent reason. Reginald Denny, a white 36-year-old truck driver was dragged from his truck and severely beaten by several blacks. Two black men and women, strangers, helped Denny get his truck to a nearby hospital. Politicians and sociologists were quick to iry and put the blame lor the riots somewhere. Some blamed it on economics, others blamed it on racism. Vice president Dan Quayle even blamed it on Murphy Brown, the newscaster personality played by Candice Bergen. The character had a child out of wedlock on the season hnale, which Quayle said mocked the importance of fatherhood and typihed the breakdown of the family system m America. No matter what the reason for the riots, Los Angeles and many other cities would not be the same for a long time to come. As politicians focused attention on the inner cities, perhaps this could be prevented from happening again.

OF MIND When 1 agreed to lake on the task of being the editor of the Renegade, I wish I could say that I didn ' t think that I would be here at the end of the year, weeks after school is out, finishing the book. I was fully aware of what I was getting myself into, and even though I haven ' t recently slept, I can easily say that it was all worth while. If I were asked why I did it, the only reason I could come up with is that I am an idiot. Somewhere buried deep withm my DNA is that one extra chromosome that only year- book editors have, its proteins translate into the, " O sure, I can do that, " instinct. Hope- fully one day, researchers at Stanford Univer- sity will come up with a cure, but it ' s loo late lor me now. I honestly don ' t know where I got the physical and mental strength to keep on working, month after month, day after day - - Going to sleep at 1 a.m. and waking up at 7 a.m. My days were hlled with business calls and classes and my nights with work meet- ings, darkroom disasters and computer crashes. There are many people to whom I owe my sanity, and I would like to thank them m the Miss America manner. Mom, a.k.a. Judy, I thmk I owe you mostly for not throwing me out of the house when I told you I was going to be on the yearbook staff, even though you tried to talk me out of it at freshmen orientation. I swear this is the last time I ' ll do this, (though I ' ve said that before). Maria, even though you were a billion, million miles away you were still there when I need someone to call and complain to. It ' s the Student Council syndrome that you re- member all to well. Luckily you and I didn ' t go through a strange mutation at school and we can still relate, thanks chica. Dana, I think if we locked ourselves into the office with only one good techm-cropper and pica ruler we probably would have killed each other. But another year has passed and so has another Renegade. I gladly pass the torch of yearbook knowledge that you passed to me on to Amy. Amy, I don ' t know just what 1 would have done if I didn ' t have you to rely on constantly; m spite of the " Blue " we still had a good year. All I can say is t hank you and the force will be with you, always (unless the computer crashes). Rebecca, once I hgured out that I had to pay to be on staff I guess you knew what was coming. It ' s been a long year Hlled with ID Rec ' s, missed deadlines, extraneous expenses and red tape. But thanks to your " Manage- ment Miracles, " you managed to pull us through it all. I ' m not quite sure how, bul that ' s probably )ust as well. Thai wa ' I can plead ignorance. Zulma, muchas gracias para todo. The staff isn ' t going to be the same without you. To the editorial staff of the Flambeau, thank you for the motivation you provided. Unfortunately, with a Best of Show and Pace- maker award, we ' re unlikely to be declared a controlled substance and banned from the market. 1 guess we get a laurel for thai. Rand, you ' ve been cl mas bueno big brother del todo el mundo hispano, even better than una ardiUa. Having you around definitely made a difference when it really needed to and kept me from going to far off the edge, " -khai- " I would also like to recognize the benevo- lence and gratuity of the illustrious brothers of the Nu Delta chapter of the Chi Phi frater- nity for letting an overworked yearbook edi- tor pledge their fraternity. If I didn ' t have the occasional " Blue party " to keep me going, 1 probably would have lost it. But now the year is at an end and another copy of the book has been produced at Florida State University. To everyone who worked on the book, well done. We did an excellent job. And to future staffs, I wish you good luck. In the words of a famous starship captain, " It ' safarbetterthingI do than I have ever done before, a far better resting place I go to than I have ever known.

We were not the same people we were months ago. We were the same at heart, but everything surrounding us had changed. We made friends, fell in and out of love, spent long nights studying and long days in classes and activities. As it all began to wrap up, we began studying for hnals, writing term papers and dissertations and packing. Prepara- tions were made for the trip home and belongings were put into storage for the next year. We were hunting around at the last minute to take care of details like forwarding our mail, closing bank accounts, getting friends ' summer ad- dresses and arranging for housing for the next year. We were waiting for the hnal moment, when our last exam was over and everything was packed away or when Photo by Zulma Crespo 316 - Closing A. returning student fills out his paperwork to get a Seminole Access card in the Student Union.

When we could hit the road and not look back until we wanted or needed to. We would be leaving behind a lot of experiences and memories but we would be looking for- ward to so much more. So much had changed, but it was a good change. For some of this would be just the beginning, others of us would go on to different schools, take summer term, gradu- ate or head out into the job market. We were on a different level than we were just a year ago. Some of us made the break from being a freshman. Others went from being an undergraduate to a graduate student. We would never be the same as we had been and soon we would go on and continue to change and experi- ence new things. But no matter where we went and where we were headed in life, we would always take with us that one thing that made us unique. What we had been through at the university had changed us in a way that we would never forget. All of the diverse aspects of the university had com- bined to give us our unique view on life and ourselves, our Florida State of Mind.
