These were sure signs that summer had come to an end and once again, school was back in session. As students poured back on to campus, they were faced Avith the same old problems- w here to park, dealing with difficult roommates, financial aid woes, class scheduling traumas and career dilemmas. However, bold new questions w ere thrown at stu- dents from every direction. Was it racist to call ourselves the Seminoles and continue " the chop " after we were so proud when our football team von their first Atlantic Coast Conference title?

What would happen to the United States now that a democratic president had taken control of the White House? Would the standard of living and the economy improve or get vorse? Why did it become almost impossible for English majors to enroll in their classes? No matter how their questions were answ ered, the year began on a controversial note. Students tried to maintain their sanity and keep themselves focused on their future challenges, while dealing with the changes of the day. B.

Ambition described the hard work and tenacity it took for Student Body President Jeanne BeUn to run for a seat on the City Commission while maintaining her position in student government. Belin was the youngest candidate to challenge her opponents. Courage described the student victims of Hurricane Andrew vho were forced to help rebuild their homes after its devastating visit to South Florida. University students across the state began ongoing clean up and relief cam- paigns for the survivors. Friends described those people who surrounded us and made our days a little brighter. They stuck by us through the good times, but more importantly, through the bad ones. Freedom was the privilege of choosing our nation ' s leader. Without a doubt, student life certainly gave us something to think about. little time to spare, students rush from one end of campus to the other between classes.

WHAT IT TAKES FOR STUDENTS TO RELAX, SOCIALIZE AND TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS " Please enter your social security number followed by the pound key, now, " hummed the impersonal computer voice from the other end of the telephone line. Although many students would have relished taking a chain saw to their telephones during registration, they called continually until they had their schedules bordering on perfection. Some students juggled their schedules around their source of income while others planned their classes around interests such as sunbathing, catching their soap operas or just maintaining the appropriate eight hours of sleep. " I schedule my classes in the morning because I w ork in the afternoon, " Wakulla High School football coach Bert Johnson said. " I take classes according to my sleep schedule, " criminology major Mike Allen said. " My classes don ' t start until 1 1 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I ' m done before 1 p.m. " " All my classes are in the afternoon because I ' m a French major. The upper level French classes are in the afternoon, " senior Laura Leduc said. " I guess French professors really dislike morning classes. " Athletes faced the insurmountable task of organizing their days and nights around grueling hours of practices. However, their schedules did not prove to be a problem because the athletic department emphasized academics. " Having to rearrange our schedules around practice for baseball is not a hassle because we have an academic advisor just for us, " baseball player Doug Alientkiew iczy said. " If we have to make an exception, the coaching staff will do their best to work around my schedule. " " It ' s really not a problem at all because due to athletic priorities, we get the classes we need, when we need them, " left fielder Clint Hendry said. Many students who lived off campus took the increasing problem of parking into consideration w hen they registered. Because there were only 8, 000 parking spaces and there were some 25,000 students living off campus, some did not want to take the chance of missing a class because they got trapped in the quest of campus parking. " I basically schedule around parking. All of my classes are in the morning so I can get a space, " junior Sarah Bull said. " They ' re all close together, so I don ' t have to leave campus. I guess that ' s about parking, too. " For many, the ideal schedule consisted of classes that were as close together as possible. This eliminated the problem of being in limbo for a few hours with nothing more appealing to do than procrastinate. " I schedule my classes close together so I only have fifteen minutes between them, " theater major Laura Conners said. " The more time I have between classes, the slimmer the chances are that I ' ll go. " " My classes are right after each other, so I don ' t have to leave the engineering campus and come back, " civil engineering major George Katsaras said. Other students, especially freshmen, were not so fortunate. " I scheduled around what I could get. I have five 8 a.m. classes! I just took whatever was available, " freshman Chris Daughtry said. Although a day in the life of a college student could be hectic beyond belief, students were surprised to find themselves having time to kill between classes. For many, this brief respite was a godsend, the perfect chance to relieve stress and let the heart rate return to normal. " I study most of the time, but when I ' m done, I watch the people go by, " freshman Roxanne Voorting said. " To tell the truth, I love the grass and trees on Landis Green. It looks like a postcard or something. (Continued on page 10) r ' BY ASHLEY WILLIAMS 8 Student Life i unior theatre major, lyori Lahier works on an assignment between classes.

" When I don ' t go to the Hbrary to study, I go to Club Downunder to watch my soaps. " The Union offered activities for students between classes. It met the four basic needs of college students: food, drink, socialization and even peace. Students picked up mail from Mom and Dad, stood in the ATM line and grabbed some Twinkies at the Corner Grocery " On Wednesdays, I go to the flea market at the Union to hear the band, " clinical psychology major Jen Paxton said. " This is just like Disney World, " freshman Paul Zimski said. " Just stand in the Access Line and get the tull effect. " Some spent their time doing things that they would rather not be doing, such as heading oil to that oh-so- underpaying part-time job, trying to find the last parking space leh on campus or waiting on the bus that decided to orbit the moon instead of circling campus. Handling financial aid hassles was a dreaded task for students to try to complete between classes. " I spent five hours dealing with my financial aid and it is still not straightened out, ' transfer student Lauwyna Fountain said. " I got two tickets before I got out of there. " When students began planning for the next semester classes, it seemed as though they were reaching to grasp that ideal schedule which always managed to elude them. This scheduling battle served many purposes in the long run, as students were not only forced to learn how to balance their limited time but also how to handle the responsibility of free time when they found it. " My classes began by Murphy ' s Law- everything I wanted was closed, so I just nabbed available spots, " junior International Affairs major Raquel Alfaro said. " I have a 1:30 class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and an 8:00 every day. I had to rearrange the rest of my life around that so everything would balance out. Luckily, I was able to get a job where I can -work lunch shifts and make a few bucks. " riding an exercise bike and studying for an exam, a student takes time out to get fit. The Bobby E.

Homecoming ' 93 was, tor all who participated, a fun-filled week with continuous celebrating at the Moon, The Club Down Under and all over campus. People enjoyed great music and good food along with an evening of comedy and talent at Homecoming Pow Wow. The week ended with the homecoming football game against the University ol Maryland and the crowning of the Chiel and Princess. The theme for this year was " Discovery. " Competitions were held throughout the week between the fraternities and sororities to see who would be crowned as Homecoming champions. The Greeks were paired for each of the competitions. The various activities carried on through the week gave alumni and others a chance to see the many changes going on here at the University. " It ' s amazing to see the new buildings and the overall growth of the campus " Lynn Jones, a 1990 graduate, said. With the addition of the Bobby E. Leach Workout facility, the University Center and other dormitory buildings on campus, many alumni returned to see an impressive campus. The week began with entertainment of all kinds such as The New Dread Zepplin at The Moon and The Blues Fest and " Tallahassee Homegrown ' 92 " on the Union Green. The Blues Fest included The Mighty Blues Band and other groups. The " Tallahassee Homegrown ' 92 " was a festival of music including such bands as Cold Water Army, The Mustard Seeds and Felix Culpa. " The music was great; it ' s nice to know that we have local entertainment, " sophomore Dana Walker said. Friday afternoon kicked off the annual homecoming parade.

The float competition was fierce between the sororities, fraternities and organizations. Delta Gamma and Lambda Chi Alpha won first place, Alpha Chi Omega and Pi Kappa Phi took second, and Phi Mu, Sigma Pi and Alpha Epsilon Pi finished third. In the student organization division, Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity finished first. United Latin Club placed second and the School of Nursing ' s entry clenched third. Other festivities including the Homecoming Pow Wow w hich was a fun evening that began with an almost full house at the Leon County Civic Center. The Marching Chiefs, the Varsity Cheerleaders and the Golden Girls provided the entertainment along w ith comedians Kevin Nealon, Bob Cat Goldthwaite and Julia Sweeny. " Everyone enjoyed Kevin Nealon. I think he was the best; the whole thing (Pow Wow) was great, " Jeff Kershna said. " Skit Night " participants amused the Civic Center spectators with their creative and thematic performances. " A Seminole Celebration: Noles of America " was the theme of the Alpha Chi Omega and Pi Kappa Phi skit. They tied for first place with Kappa Alpha Theta w ith their spirited entry. Regardless of the outcome, everyone enjoyed a week of homecoming festivities. " I made so many friends during homecoming. Working closely with so many people, it ' s hard not to become close friends, " Delta Zeta senior fashion merchandising major Misty Farrow said. (Continued on page 16).

Many who attended Pow Wow enjoyed his " off the wall " performance. " I loved it. He (Goldthwait) did a great show and a very different one, too " Senior Heather Schroeder said. Pow Wow was not only a night of laughter for those who attended, but also an evening of the Seminole tradition. The competition for Homecoming Chief and Princess was stiff with ten very vorthy students vying for the title. The award was based on academic achievement, general knowledge of the University, poise and conversational ability and qualities that they held which added credit and honor to the University. All the candidates were worthy of the title; however, only two could take the crown. Emcee Gene Deckerhoff presented W. Calvin Smith II and Sonja Clark as the Chief and Princess. Crowning their successors were 1991 Chief and Princess Abner Devallon and Sandi Leff. First runners-up were Allen Durham and Nicole Batchelor. The court included Janice Dusseau, Patrick Mannion, Gina Myatt, Chuck Nussmeyer, Rebekka Buckhalt and Jeff Hopkins. Homecoming was a week of tradition for all at the University. It was a time for alumni to see a new campus, but also a time for them to reminisce on the wonderful memories they made while here. There vas something for everyone to enjoy during the week, from great music to a fantastic football game on a beautiful day. No matter what the activity people participated in, there was excitement and a bold tradition in it all. R ormer Chief and Princess, Abner Devallon and Sandi Leff lead Calvin Smith and Sonja Clark out onto the field to be officially cro vned.

I 1 8 Student Life HOMEWARD BounD STUDENTS HEAD HOME The appetizing steak and potatoes were a welcome reprieve from the normal nuked burritos. The smell of your mom ' s pies filled your nostrils andyour dog almost knockedyou down in his all too lovable greeting. If it was your first time, your mother gave a knowing sigh at your overflowing pile of laundry. If your were fortunate enough to have younger siblings, you marveled at how much they had changed. Your brother was not actually talking to girls w henyou left for school was he? Was that makeup you saw on your sister ' s lace? Home was everything you remembered, yet somehow it was different. The feeling students got when they went home for the weekend could be described as almost eerie. ' On my four-hour drive home, I ponder what will be different this trip, " Orlando resident Wendy Exely said. " The first time I went home. Mom had planted flowers. The second time she had wallpapered the bathroom and the third time she ' d done the kitchen as well. It ' s always an adventure to see what has changed about home this time. " The first time I vent home it lelt like I was coming back from camp, but on the way back, it finally hit me that Tallahassee is where I live now, " freshman Kristi Conklin said. " It ' s such a different feeling to go home again. When I get to the door, I knock and open it at the same time. Even though it ' s my home and it ' s where I grew up, I don ' t live there anymore, " junior Jason Longman said. " I miss my little brother and sisters the most. They grow up so much while I ' m away, " Jacksonville resident Nia Elliot said. Many freshmen felt overwhelmed with the desire to return to the security of their own bed and their old niche in society. Although many w ent through what seemed like four years of high school hell, anticipating the day when they would finally be able to pack their bags and head otf to the big university, they often found themselves longing to be back home. " A lot of times, I ' m more homesick when I come back than before I go, " Conklin said. " It brings it all back to mind and makes me miss everything even more. " " My first semester in college, I went home every other weekend, even though it was six hours away, " Immokalee resident Neida Schooler said. Many students were not lucky enough to visit home as much as they vished. Out-of- state students often had to wait until Christmas and summer breaks before seeing their family. However, when it was possible to return home, students raked in the advantages. Students grabbed the open opportunity to pump up the Tallahassee bank account, stock the fridge with pity-hlled home cooked meals and fill their closets with new clothes. " My car is always more full coming back to Tallahassee than going home, " English major Kara Raines said. " I go shopping every time I go home without fail. " Home was always a welcome sight for students. With the daily stress of college life, nothing seemed to relieve the tension of the overworked student better than a visit with the family. Although home could be described as only a building made of walls, these walls encompassed all of the memories that made home so special. These same walls w elcomed students back and seemed to remind them not only of who they were and how they got there, but also of where they had once been and what they had endured to get there. As the weekend ended, Monday came all too soon and students found themselves sitting in class holding a bit more of the walls than they had on Friday.

JP : Andrew THE HURRICANE THAT BROUGHT SO MUCH DESTRUCTION Hurricane Andrew drove through southern Florida devastating the property of local residents. Families were left homeless, without food and water. Although relief efforts immediately formed around the state nothing seemed to fill the needs of those affected by the destructive storm. Residents became refugees in their own land and they were forced to rely on the kindness of total strangers for their survival. Approximately 20,000 families received vouchers to get resettled and Red Cross officials estimated that 40,000 more families needed similar help. Ironically enough, the Red Cross had its hands full with typhoon victims in Guam and Hawaii and flood victims in the Midwest, as well as the families of Homestead. The Salvation Army also brought vans into the city with hot meals and cold drinks. Their carpenters immediately began work on repairing houses and joined the efforts of several local church organizations in their quest. The Federal Government moved families into portable metal homes and several relief agencies began builing new houses. Four days after the hurricane, 20,000 soliders arrived in Homestead and the greater Miami area to help with the efforts. Strict curfews were enforced by the military men to deter vandals from taking A ' hat little was left from local businesses and other personal belongings. Road blockades were set up which made entrance into the city difficult. Those who fled the area had to show definite proof of residence in order to be admitted into the city to return to what was left of their homes. In addition to the federal aid, thousands of men and women came from all over the United States. Many were from South Carolina and had survived Hurricane Hugo two years ago. The enormous number oi volunteers treated the victims with kindness and generosity. " I couldn ' t believe the amount of support that we received. People were so kind. The last thing that I expected was the work of the Army, though, " Rose Acosta, a Homestead resident, said. The Red Cross generated $59 million and the Salvation Army $10 million for the reconstruction of the disintegrated city. Tractor trailers brought tons of food, building supplies, mountains of used clothing and the equivalent of lakes in drinking water. Most of the donated goods went to the survivors. However, during the initial confusion, some of the shipments were accidentally dumped outdoors. Cartons of food broke open in the rain and great piles of clothes were soaked and had to be thrown away. Insurance companies worked feverishly on homeowner, life and auto claims for their clients. Despite positive volunteer efforts, some added more problems to an already desperate situation. Landlords forced residents to continue payment on their property and rented apartments. If they refused, eviction was eminent. Even with all the government and local help, universities around the state felt it was time to step in and help out. The relief effort was started as a result of a conversation Student Body President, Jeanne Belin had with University of Miami Student Body President David Diamond. T v as interested in this project because I was aware of the devastation the students would face. Plus I have family down there and I was concerned about their welfare, " Belin said. Once Belin finished speaking with Diamond, she contacted the Vice President ' s Project Council to see if they wanted to help. The VPPC responded immediately by forming groups and calling the papers to get community support. Carrie Pollock, a member of student government, was chosen to head the relief project by the VPPC. " I always wanted to be a part of Student Government. I contacted Jeanne Campbell and soon after was involved with the VPPC. I took on the relief effort because I am from Miami and I knew they could use anything we could give them, " Pollock said. Another key player in organizing the relief effort vas food services director Joe Pianese.

Without his leadership, things may not have gone so well, " Belin said. Pianese said that when he saw the destruction in the Miami area he knew something had to be done. " I was talking to the Marriott folks about Miami and Florida International and what we could do, and that same day I saw that Jeanne was urging people to give canned goods to the effort. I figured we should get together and see what we could do. We veren ' t sure vhat they needed but we figured they would need the basic items for survival like water, nonperishable food and clothing, " Pianese said. Pianese, along with food services manager Bob Gibson, gathered supplies such as tar paper and other roofing tools and drove down to Miami the Wednesday following the hurricane. " Originally, the University of Miami didn t want to become a relief site, but after the damage was surveyed, it became apparent that the use of the facility, along with Florida International University, would be necessary to aid in the effort, " Pianese said. " Miami mostly needed tar paper to help patch ceilings and replace roofs and Florida International needed clothes, water and canned goods, " Pianese said. Pianese and Gibson left Wednesday for Miami and noted that the turnpike reserved two areas at each toll so those helping out in the relief effort could avoid the burden of paying to get to their destination. " Everyone was helpful going down there and once we arrived. Bob and I both had friends that lived in Fort Lauderdale so we also had a place to stay. That made things a lot easier, " Pianese said, " we even made it back to Tallahassee Thursday evening. " Although the effort went well, south Florida still required more help. " We ' re now working on a project to get supplies to the Indians in the Everglades, everyone seems to have forgotten about them. We ' re going to use all of our resources to help as many people as we can, " Belin said. ' This project will be going on for a long time. It involves all of us regardless of vhere we live. There ' s still a lot that needs to be done, " Pollock said. K, olunteers fill a storage truck with many needed goods for the south Florida survivors.

You rolled over and glared at your alarm clock. You had an 8 a.m. class in the Diffenbaugh Building which was 20 minutes away. You grabbed a hat, brushed your teeth and rushed away on your bike only to find yourself locked out of the classroom becauseyou were late. You had to meet with your professor but he did not return any of your 12 messages. Your advisor did call, however, something about a grad check. You hadn ' t bought groceries in four days, unlessyou counted spaghetti noodles and Froot Loops, and your electricity would have been turned off Wednesday ifyou had not rolled change to pay the bill. To top it off, you had three finals Friday and you worked until closing every night this week. And this was just Monday. Many students were excited to finally be on their own, oblivious to all of the responsibilities that came along with being a college student. Finally, their own apartment, their own life, their own set of rules. " Class? What? Only 12 hours aAveek? I went to high school seven hours a day, five days a week. This should be a breeze, right? " Wrong. Nationwide, campus psychologists said they were seeing a generation sick with anxiety. Dr. Robert Gallagher of the University of Pittsburgh ran an annual survey of college counseling service directors. He reported that the number of students who were coming into counseling centers with severe psychological problems increased by 31 percent since 1988. " Students are coming in more stressed, with more serious concerns, " Gallagher said. Students often found themselves overwhelmed with the responsibilities that accompanied adulthood. That growing up equals stress was soon found to be as universally understood as one plus one equals two. How ever, it was up to the individual student to find creative ways to deal with this stress and alleviate the problem as much as possible. " I like to w atch football because I can yell and scream and get out all of my frustrations, " Kerry Gordon, a junior in international affairs, said. " I like to mdulge myself A ' hen I ' m stressed. It ' s nice to plop in front of the television with some homemade cookies or go buy myself a new outfit, " junior Melanie Leaman said. Although being involved in the many campus organizations often proved to be more stressful than stress relieving, there were certain exceptions to this rule. " When I feel like I ' m starting to stress, I find that doing banners with Garnet and Gold Girls on Wednesday nights helps. It relaxes my mind and it ' s so nice to not have to do anything right or give the right answers. It ' s okay ifyou go out of the lines, " chemical engineering major Stephanie Pullmgs said. Many students lound themselves depending on personal employment in order to make ends meet each month. This, coupled with the usual stress of school, could truly weigh a person down. According to Elizabeth Nuss, executive director of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, public university students across the country were working more, having a harder time getting into classes, taking longer to graduate and, in some cases, leaving school. " Being a senior, I have all of this added pressure to decide what I ' m going to do with the rest of my life. My job, telemarketing, tends to put a strain on my time more than anything else. It not only limits me in the time that I have to study but also in the time I have for myself, " speech pathology major Gina Drago said. " When stressed, one should always keep things in perspective and not overreact to the situation, " junior Will Lesnick said. " After all, 10 years from now, will it really matter that you bombed your first calculus test or that your VISA bill was occasionally late? " Probably not. BY NANCY FLOYD Stress 25 a YOU GOTTA HAVE ART A STRUGGLE TO BRING ART TO TALLAHASSEE The stars, a blazing yellow, the sky, a thick midnight blue, the city below surrounded by dark evergreens and a black night. This painting, " A Stary Night, " by Vincent VanGogh is an example of what many students thought of when they thought of art. Or maybe they thought of the University ' s fine arts center and its plays and musicals presented by students, or even the small student art gallery at the center, but many were shocked to hear of a new fine arts and cultural center to be built in Tallahassee. While many considered the new s positive, others viewed the center a waste of good time and money. The proposed arts and cultural center was the idea of concerned citizens interested in bringing the arts and art education to the community. The proposed center would be located in downtown Tallahassee near the Leon County Civic Center and would include three galleries lor " art exhibition " including spaces for touring shows, galleries with educational exhibitions and a sculpture court. There would be an interactive media gallery with the latest in computer and laser technology so students would have hands-on experiences w ith art education. Proponents such as Susan Saldino, Director of the Museum of Art Tallahassee, cited improvements in cultural development, economic growth, social interaction and an improved image of the city of Tallahassee as reasons for the center ' s development. " The most important thing the Museum of Art Tallahassee has tried to bring to our city is an exhibit of fine art never before seen here and an innovative art education program for children and adults " Baldino said. The " You Gotta Have Art " campaign by the cultural center was used to help raise awareness of the facilities and to get people to vote on the referendum for the project. The H.E.A.R.T. campaign cited three benefits that the center ' s existence would bring about. Elducation was a prime objective of the facilities along with the economic benefits for the city and it ' s residents. The referendum was voted on Feb. 23 to decide whether the museum and fine arts center would receive city funds to help finance the project. It was estimated that 35 percent of the funding for the museum and 50 percent of the funding for the fine arts center w ould come from the city. While Tallahassee was asked to give financial aid, other revenue sources provided more than half of the money needed. Sources such as state and federal grants and corporate and private donations were a part ot the contributions. The referendum was voted down by citizens. Some cited the supposed effect on their utility bills as a reason for the failure. They felt that their bills would be increased in order to finance the center, while, in truth, the money for the museum and cultural center would have come from the city ' s General Fund, hence, the facility ' s funding w ould come from money given to the city by citizens for different projects, which, included the fine arts complex. Voting for the museum would not have increased the customers bill, nor would it decrease the bill if the customer voted against the museum. Proponents cite this misunderstanding as one of the major reasons for the failure of the referendum. " It is frustrating to see all of the hard work that goes into bringing the museum to life torn apart by a misunderstanding " Heather Schroeder, a volunteer student, said. Although there vas oppostion towards the center ' s development, many citizens felt strongly about continuing the push for the building of the facilities. The search for funding continued and it was proposed by the mayor, Dorothy Inman-Crews, that a referendum for the center be put on the ballot in February of 1994. She plans to start a petition drive which would show public interest in the project. The cultural center faced opposition, yet continued w ith the support of many in the community, to bring arts and art education to Tallahassee.

Museum 27 ONE VISION when the budget cuts began hitting home with Florida ' s students, the Florida Student Association decided to do something about it. They organized two student rallies that converged upon the capitol, letting the legislators know that students did care, and yes, students did vote. " Vision ' 92 was unique in that students actually worked together to find answers rather than just pointing out problems, " delegate Joe Minor said. FSA ' s next step was a brave endeavor into student empowerment. They no longer encouraged students to " skip class today " and join in a march to the capitol, they actually gave student leaders a chance to interact with today ' s political figures. Representing the 187,000 public university students in the state , FSA joined with the community colleges and private universities to sponsor Vision ' 92 Empowering Florida ' s Future. A two-day, non- partisan, political student convention which took place on the University of Central Florida campus in September, Vision was the first of its kind. " We want to show the nation that tomorrow ' s leaders are prepared to start working today to insure a prosperous future, " Tracy Newman, director of FSA special projects and Vision co-chair, said. " Student involvement is essential il Florida is ever going to reach the level ol education that we not only w ant, but the level that we deserve. " FSA was formed in 1976 by a group of student leaders to represent the views of the nine state universities within the state of Florida. During the 16 years of existence, it has become known as one ol the largest and most effective student lobby groups in the country. The association was composed of the student body presidents of the nine state universities and a permanent staff of five including two full- time lobbyists. FSA brought together the top 382 student leaders ol the 1 .2 million post-secondary students in the state to formulate a platform on education. The number of students each school sent was based upon student population with five base delegates plus one delegate per 1,000 students. In an effort to maintain maximum diversity, these delegates were chosen by the universities ' student body presidents based upon leadership show n through student organizations. The Vision ' 92 platform addressed 10 educational areas: tuition, differential tuition, financial aid and scholarships, libraries, student regent, academic quality, dorm fees, Florida Public Interest Research Group, Florida ' s Office of Campus Volunteers and budget. The convention served as a catalyst to present a student agenda on issues relevant to the present state of education. The platform was designed to serve as a guideline to both state and national leaders, so that the needs of American students could be better understood. This very platform, designed entirely by Vision delegates, was hand-delivered to each of the presidential candidates at the presidential debate held in Lansing, Michigan. Vision allowed students to interact with current political leaders. On a local level, Governor Lawton Chiles addressed the convention, as did Eklucation Commissioner Betty Castor, Chancellor Charles Reed and Board ot Regents Chairman Alec Courtelis. Additional speakers included university student body presidents. State Representative Tom Feeney, President ol the American Bar Association Sandy D ' Alemberte, State Representative Alzo Reddick, Jeb Bush and United States Secretary of ExJucation Lamar Alexander. " Once again Florida has led the way in student empowerment. For the first time the student voice was truly heard by today ' s political leaders, " student senate president Jenn Tankersley said. " We ' re finally taking control of our own future.

While these services have helped many students, another program, the Cops- on-Bikes patrol, was implemented on campus to help in responding to calls and working with students in a more personalized manner. Cities such as Las Vegas and Los Angeles have already used officers on bikes, because of the greater mobility and community involvement. " An officer on a bike is more one on one, there is more personal contact, " FSU Police Lieutenant Jack Handley said. In an effort to beef up campus security. University President Dale Lick and Campus Police Chief Bill Tanner joined together in starting a trial program that began in the summer . They saw how the program worked in other cities and wanted to bring community policing to campus. In the fall, the campus police began patrolling on bikes 24 hours a day. " The officer on the bike handles the same type ol calls as the cruiser, " Lt. Handley said. " The bikes respond to calls on the blue light trail faster than cruisers. A bike can get around more quickly and efficiently than a person on foot, " Terri Brown, an officer in the program, said. " Most important, the bike is good for reaching areas you can ' t in a car, " officer Brown said. The program had four bikes on patrol, two were purchased by the department, one was a gift from the Student Alumni Association and the newest bike came from the Student Government Association. The cost of each bike was $750 plus another $600 to equip the officers for duty w ith normal police gear and bicycle safety equipment. Police cruisers cost between $15,000 and $20,000 each, not including the $8,000 ayear for maintenance. " Though the bikes did not replace police vehicles, the school would save money in the long run, " Handley said. Besides saving wear and tear on police cars, the mountain bikes kept the officers in top shape. While on duty, an officer might ride between 12 and 20 miles a day. Fitness was an important factor when condisering the new program. " It is very important to stay fit and healthy in this line of work, " Brown said. With the implementation of the ne v program, students had a better chance to get to know the police. This more personalized attention made students more likely to report crimes. " (The program) puts officers right there with the students, " Officer Brown said. With its success on campus the city of Tallahassee Police Department was also considering the use of bike patrols to cut down on crime. " " Currently, the city is entertaining going to a bike patrol, " Lt. Handley said. On occasion, the program aided the Tallahassee Police Department in apprehending criminals outside campus walls. The all-terrain vehicles provided easy access to small areas such as woods and narrow paths. Another advantage of bike patrol was that the bikes were quiet and allowed an officer to sneak up on a crime. The cops-on-bikes patrol added to not only the safety on campus, but also gave the students more access to the police department and its officers. Progress in crime prevention was very successful through the implementation of this new patrol. BY SHAY BRAINARD FSU Police 31 T oo Close 1 toh ome RAPE NOT JUST A WOMAN ' S PROBLEM " Why me? What did I do? What did I ever do to deserve this? I had heard of it happening to friends of mine, but never thought in a milhon years it would be me, " a recent survivor of date rape said. " I am really scared. Not just scared of him. ' I am scared to walk down the street by myself, scared to go to out by myself and especially scared to go out on any date. I often still feel guilty, dirty and ashamed. I never thought it would happen to me, but it did. " The statistics on women w ho have been sexually assaulted have grown each year. It is estimated that when one rape is reported, ten have actually occurred. This does not necessarily mean that more women are being raped. It instead shows that more women are standing up for their rights. More women have come forward to say that they could not be taken advantage of and had a right to their own body. Tales of sexual assault and rape often bring to mind visions of a brawny, brutal looking man who makes a person shiver with fear. Although this is the picture that most people conjugate in their mind, it is not reality. Most women are raped by " average " acquaintances, people they know or have just met. When a person is raped by an average acquaintance it is called " date rape. " In the fall, a total of 16 rapes were reported on campus. Of those 16 rapes, 1 1 were recent and five had occurred in the past. The women decided they needed help to recover from their past experience. They had been t o the Office of Women ' s Concerns to report being raped and to seek help through counseling. Only four of these 16 victims had been raped by a stranger, according to the Office of Women ' s Concerns. " A date rape could happen to anyone... anywhere. Although in date rape a weapon may not be used to force someone to have intercourse, it is still a traumatic experience. The victim has no idea what will come next or what the attacker is capable of doing, " Lexie Jepson Rodgers from Office of Women ' s Concerns said. The Office of Women ' s Concerns began a Victim Advocate Program in conjunction with the University Police Department. A person from women ' s concerns vas on duty from 5 p.m. - 8 a.m. in case a victim decides to report a rape. The person followed up the next day to aid in more counseling and offer support. This was extremely helpful to the victim ' s recovery. The advocate on call was there to offer encouragement and support for the victim. It was the Police Department ' s responsibility to obtain information in case of prosecution. However, immediately following the rape was a difficult time tor the victim to relive the experience even to provide the information the police needed. The Office of Women ' s Concerns did not pressure the women to prosecute. They did educate the women who came in lor counseling on the options that are available. ' " Twenty-five percent of women in college have been the victims of rape or attempted rape " stated a nationwide survey conducted by Ms. magazine, psychologist Mary P. Koss and the National Institute for Mental Health. Rape, however, did not only affect the vomen who are forced to endure this trauma, but it affected their friends and family as well. A women may become totally standoffish to her family, friends and boyfriend. Her trust of men was usually lost. It was a mental battle for all to endure and fight. " When my friend first told me [she had been raped] I felt hurt for her. Then I was angry toward the person who did this to her. I wish there could be a stronger sentence for those convicted, " junior criminology major Scott Johnson said. " ' It is a terrible crime for people to commit. I feel for all the women who have had to go through this painful ordeal. The men that do rape have a serious problem. " " I was so angry when she told me. I w as angry at the guy who had done this to her and angry that he left her feeling guilty, " Trey Turner said. " I tried and tried to tell her it w as not her fault and she w as not the one to blame. But there were no w ords to take her pain away so all I could was hold her.

TO HELP STUDENTS IN NEED " Rape in Tallahassee a real possibiltiy " read a headline in the FSView. " Student raped near stadium, " said an article in the Florida Flambeau. These articles depicted the harsh reality of rape and the fact that many students who attended the University had been assaulted, harrassed by a teacher or student, or raped by an acquiantance or a stranger. This ever increasing possibility of being a victim increased awareness oi students, teachers and faculty through programs such as " Stop Rape Week, " which informed people of the possibility ot being assaulted and measures that would help to protect them. With statistics such as a report from the FBI saying that " 1 out of 6 w omen w ere vicitms of rape or attemped rape while in college " ( not including unreported batteries) there w as a definite need for counseling and support for survivors of such a heinous act. The Office of Women ' s Services created a program to provide students counseling and support through The Victim Advocate Program, which helped victims who were assaulted and needed immediate counseling. This program made available advocates for students to talk to not only during the day, but also after 5 p.m. and on weekends. In the past immediate counseling was not offered after regular w orking hours. The program was implemented to give support and information to victims according to their needs. " It ' s good to know that women have someone to turn to who will just listen. I have friends who have been harassed and didn ' t know vhat to do, but knowing there is someplace you can call just for information or support is great, " sophomore Jean Kirkman said. The director of the Office of Women ' s Concerns, Lexie Jepson Rodgers, worked as an advocate in the program helping victims, primarily giving support and taking information when a student contacted her. The primary coordinator of the program was Connie Shanks who was the primary advocate working vith students. ' A feeling of safety and support are first provided, working on the immediate needs of the student. We ' re basically there as a support system for the student, " Rodgers said. This improved counseling helped students know their rights and the other alternatives open to them. Working with both the University and Tallahassee. Police Departments, the program allo A ' ed students to press charges or to report the crime for documentation and possible use later. " It ' s a positive improvement for students and a good support center for women, " Misty Farrow, a Fashion Merchandise major, said. Support groups were also provided for students. These groups met at undisclosed times and locations for the safety of the victim. Anyone who was interested in the groups was encouraged to contact the office of Women ' s Concerns; all calls were screened before giving out any other information to callers. The efforts to support victims increased with the addition of The Sexual Assault Task Group, comprised of representatives of different areas around campus such as the Thagard Health Center, the Escort Service, the University police and the Housing Department. They met to look at preventative measures and responses to assaults on campus. They worked to educate members and get information from the representatives on improvements in counseling. " We basically feed off one another for information to help provide students vith the right information and to close gaps and solve problems in programs, " Rodgeis said. The Office of Women ' s Concerns worked to improve response to a need for support and counseling and information, but statistics from the office of Women ' s Concerns showed that lastyear only 24 sexual batteries and four attempted assaults were reported. These numbers did not clearly indicate the number of assaults actually committed on campus because so many students did not report them. " We encourage people to report (sexual assaults). No one should be forced to go forward, but rather to report it for their own mental well-being and so the healing process can begin, " Rodgers said. Students were encouraged to report any type of sexual battery from harassment to rape to the University police at 64A-1259 or to the Victim Advocate Program at 644-2785. Whatever the choice of the student, the advocate program was there to support as well as inform students of their rights. This expanded and improving program helped students to not only find solutions to their problems, but also an advocate on campus.

But the Center was already moving in a fully functional capacity long before the ribbons were cut in Iront of several hundred spectators at its new home on Wildwood Drive. During most of the fall semester, anxious and dedicated staff prepared to make the newly-renovated building a second home for international students. Freshly-painted white washed walls with peach trimming enclosed nothing but new gray carpeting until the furniture, most of it donated, arrived to fill the three-story building. The former International Student Office located in Bryan Hall was cramped and lacking in the facilities necessary to meet the needs of the growing population of international students. The new center had a reception area and lounge in the entrance ol the building and modern staff offices throughout the entire entrance floor. The other levels had recreation facilities where students could relax with their peers and conference rooms available lor them to reserve for organization meetings. " It is very important to have a place for them to be comfortable, " intern Judy Law rence said. Lawrence assisted in the hosting program that placed international students with American host families. In 1989, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Sherrill Ragans recommended an abandoned fraternity house for the center ' s future location, a site some criticized with skepticism. " Some said that it wouldn ' t work, " Ragans said. " It was a band of the faithful that made it happen. " One of the faithful band, Roberta Christie ■ became the Center ' s Director. Christie introduced its motto, " We are open to the world, " at the opening ceremony. " The Center is open tor the non-academic needs of over 800 international students who come to FSU from 100 different countries, " Christie said. She cited the Center ' s openness to new cultures as support for these students {78 percent of whom vere graduate students) and support for their children and spouses. The Center operated on three levels: 1) immigration services, which helped international students stay vithin their visa status, 2) orientation, which gave students a sense of -welcoming and adjustment and 3) cross-cultural training, vhich educated students on aspects of American culture and allowed them to share their culture with others. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Dr. Jon Dalton, Vice President for Student Affairs, spoke on the importance of strengthening ties with international students based on his former contact with the international program at the University of Kentucky. " The Center will give visibility to others about international issues and it will give the international students facilities for support, " Dalton said. University President Dale Lick hoped the Center would make the school a model of diversity and pluralism. " The ribbon cutting represents the removal of one more barrier of what ve could do because of where we came from, " Lick said. The Center implemented its Brown Bag Luncheon series just a few weeks after its official grand opening. Students and community members brought their lunches to the Center and heard a series of speakers on different international issues. The series presented lectures such as " Human Rights in Haiti " and " An Introduction to the Peace Corps " usually led by experienced speakers and international students who helped to contribute to the goal of multi-culturalism. " By providing a service to the community and faculty, we hope it will increase awareness, " graduate assistant Alba Aguero said.

She called Steve to tell him she was HIV-positive and suddenly Debbie and her boytriend laced the possibil- ity ot infection. " Itwasscary lor both of us to hear. ..but I ' m truly gratelul she cared and let my boyfriend know. We are going to be tested, " Debbie said. The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome was the disease that infected Steve ' s ex-girlfnend and millions of others like her who may have had unprotected sex, shared a drug needle or received blood transfusions by infe cted carriers. AIDS was caused by the Human Immunodefi- ciency Virus which has been found to destroy the body ' s ability to fight illnesses. Once thought to be associated with homosexuals only, AIDS has become a globally threatening killer, nondis- criminatory to any race, creed or color. Unprotected sex, contaminated blood transfusions, IV drug use and mother to child transmission •were the main -ways AIDS found its host. Although a great deal about AIDS remained a mystery, much has been learned about its effects and characteristics. Extensive education, testing and counseling has been made available to University students. Thagard Student Health Center offered confidential HIV testing for students and faculty at a cost of $15. The confidential testing performed by Thagard Center was different from the anonymous testing offered at the Leon County Health Department because " confidential " meant the test result was put into the student ' s record instead of remaining anonymous. The test results were never re- ported but several doctors may have had access to these student records. To be tested, students must have had counseling to ensure the students ' awareness of the possibilities and options available if they were infected with the virus. If students confessed to a dangerous lifestyle, counseling helped educate them on proper prevention of the AIDS virus and gave them advice on safer sex practices. Coun- seling was also been a useful tool to help students who tested positive to cope and get information. " So many college students have sex and don ' t use condoms. They think it won ' t happen to me. I ' m young. ' and that ' s just not the way it works, " AIDS activist Tim Greene said. It was estimated that one out of every 500 college students in the entire United States was infected with the AIDS virus and between October 1991 and October 1992 and 31 percent of the cases were heterosexually transmitted. Unfortunately, there was no successful treatment for AIDS, only medicine that has prolonged the lives of those tragically stricken with the deadly disease. Several organizations, hotlines and activists helped an- swer some of the questions about AIDS and raised money for research and health care for patients. One group of volunteer students known as " FSU To- day " completed a semester ' s worth of training to become qualified counselors for students. Skits on safer sex education were performed by the counselors in the dorms and Greek houses as well as for other organizations to promote AIDS awareness. The Names Project was a community organization that raised the money and effort to bring the traveling AIDS quilt to Tallahassee in fall 1993. Each section of the quilt represented someone ' s life before they died of AIDS. Whether it was a ballet slipper for a dancer or a wedding band sewn on to the quilt patch, it was an artistic and caring way to remember loved ones lost to AIDS. Students also volunteered for and received help from the Florida AIDS Hotline in Tallahassee. The hotline served callers seven days a week, addressing questions and con- cerns about AIDS under a code of confidentiality. The reality of AIDS affected everyones lives and in- fected some to the point of death. If estimates were correct, between 50-70 students on this campus alone may have already tested positive in just this past year. BY ALICIA HARBOUR AIDS 39 MASCOT FACES OPPOSITION, BUT STANDS STRONG For years the Seminole Mascot has been a symbol of courage, strength and tenacity for many students and fac- ulty members at the Univer sity. However, Mike Haney, an official of the Seminole Nation in Oklahoma and a member of the board of directors for the National Coalition Against Racism in Sports and Music, found the mascot offensive. " (The Mascot) is as much a racial slur as the use oi blackface, " Haney said, referring to white actors painting their faces black to perpetuate negative stereotypes of African Americans. Haney also cited other examples where he felt the Uni- versity demonstrated insensitivity towards the Seminole Indian culture. " The tomahawk chop simulates scalping, an act of vio- lence that the French and other Europeans practiced for the bounties on the scalps of my people: 80 cents for the men, 50 cents for the A ' omen and 40 cents for the children, " Haney said. Haney demanded such Seminole traditions be abol- ished and that the University eventually drop the Seminole mascot altogether. He threatened to file suit against the University if satisfactory results were not reached by a specified deadline. Haney s threats prompted a meeting among himself. University President Dale Lick and other administrators on Dec. 22, 1992. There, Lick agreed to a meeting with Haney at a later date and appointed Director of Human Resources Freddie Groomes to be the liaison between Haney and the University. " I respect and understand his interest, " Groomes said, " but this is a very sensitive issue on both sides and we need to make sure we do the right thing. " Following the meeting Haney was not satisfied with the amount of progress the University made to fulfill his de- mands. " Basically, they have done very little, if anything... Fd like to see a plan of action, some timetable. But maybe we ' ll have to move them through threats and civil disobedience, " Haney said. Lick defended the University and said that Haney s complaints were being recognized and dealt w ith accord- ingly. University ofhcials have met with members of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. In fact, James Billie, chairper- son of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, was honored by the -way the University portrayed the Seminole Mascot. An- other true Seminole, Shayne Osceola, had a great deal of pride in the University ' s Seminoles. " (The mascot) is a portrayal of a Seminole Indian who is noble, strong and full of integrity, " Osceola said. However, Haney felt that the University used the Semi- noles of Florida to justify their racism. In addition, he stressed that they (Florida Seminoles) did not speak for all Seminoles or Native Americans. In fact, Haney believed that Florida Seminoles were in the minority when it came to the issue at hand. " Every Indian I know is mad at the University because everything they do affects us, " Haney said. If Haney took the University to court, thousands of fans might be affected as well. In the early days, fans extended their hands and bent their arms at the elbows. This motion, labeled the " Seminole Chop " urged the football team to score a touchdown. It was largely done while the team was on offense as a symbol of toughness, unity and a reluctance to give up. However, some people believe that old mascots - like old habits - die hard. Even if Haney took the University to court, most people, like economics major Efrem Carter, were not certain that fans would stop urging the Seminole to victory with traditional methods. " I think the majority of students are not in favor of phasing out the mascot. And police would probably have to arrest the entire stadium to keep them from chanting, " Carter said.

" Congress looked at college costs, the economy and the job market and saw that students needed more assistance, " Michael Wielgus, marketing officer for the Barnett Higher Exlucation Loan Program, said. The revisions, which went into effect in July for the 1993-94 year, authorized renovations of aid programs, more flexible eligibility guidelines, a more simplistic aid application and an increase in overall funding. Revisions to the aid application included a reduction from 125 to 50 questions which served several functions. Topics which were addressed included total income, financial assets and income tax paid. Dependent students were required to provide information pertaining to their parents ' income, also. After the application process was completed, students could receive grants or other forms of reward money. Some students received money through a work study program offered by the University. Students who qualified are given jobs in different offices on campus doing a variety of things from paperwork to working the desk in a dormitory on campus. This not only provided students with the needed aid, but also helped them to leel they have earned the money. Obviously, the dreaded task of applying for financial aid has been changed. But, more importantly, questions about parent ' s home equity have been eliminated. According to the U.S. News World Report 1993 College Guide, this made about 2.5 million more students eligible for aid nationally. " In previous years that (home equity questions) knocked out a lot of students or they didn ' t get as much as they could have, " Joanne Clark, a coordinator in the University ' s financial aid office said. The University received $20 million for its financial aid budget, an increase of $2 million from the previous year. Stafford loans were increased in value from $2,625 to $3,500 for freshmen and sophomores and from $4,000 to $5,500 for juniors, seniors and graduate students. The department also added to its program the onsite unsubsidized loan application. The loan program offered a loan in the amount of choice which the student was automatically approved for. Federal grants were also increased. The Federal Pell Grant was due to be funded up to $3,700; however, due to a limited budget, the grant was allocated $2,300. " Considering all the cuts and tuition increases we ' ve had in the past, this is the best news yet, " junior communication major Mike Sartore said. The new revisions also helped to combat a rise in the aid applicants needed due to the national recession. Because of the shape of the economy, many people returned to school for further education. With this return to furthering one ' s education came an increase in the number of applicants requesting aid. Because this increase coincided with the added funding, money was alloted on a " first come, first serve basis. " The University financial aid office strongly urged all applicants to apply early because of the added funding and probability of receiving aid. " I usually fill out my forms before I leave for Spring Break. What ' s two hours of paperwork on a plane compared to a whole year with nothing but lint in your pockets? " junior hospitality administration major Geoff Tucker said. Financial aid was in the past nothing, but a hassle for many students, but with these economic improvements aid became not only a real possibility for many, but an added sourcce of hope. BY MIKE MASTERMAN-SMITH Financial Aid 43 f7prmin; tpH 7 TENURED HISTORY PROFESSOR FACES LAW SUIT After weeks of deliberation during a University hearing, Dr. David Ammerman, a tenured history professor with 29 years of teaching spent in Tallahassee, was silent about the administrative decision on the status of his employment in light of drug and student program scandals. Ammerman was arrested May 20 on charges of cocaine possession and purchase after a four-month investigation conducted by the Tallahassee Police Department and University police. It was later alledged that sexual misconduct occurred within a minority mentoring program founded by Ammerman. TPD Chief Mel Tucker said he had been aware of rumors about Ammerman ' s drug use in the early eighties but he was not compelled to investigate Ammerman until allegations of child abuse in the program were brought against him. The Summer Enrichment Program, designed by Ammerman to recruit more minorities to campus, was just one of many efforts made by Ammerman to improve race relations on campus. Aside from the $70,000 excess above its budget, the program was criticized for the allegations of abuse of the children in the program as well as drug and sexual abuse by the counselors. One report claimed that a student was sexually involved with one of the counselors and became pregnant. Ammerman denied that he had ever degraded or humiliated African-Americans in the programs but admitted to spanking several high school students in the program after the counselors left because they were " out of control. " Ammerman was fired from the program because the overexpenditure of the program ' s budget but other overtones of misconduct began to surface. In September, Ammerman asked the court to drop charges of drug possession based on the breach of confidentiality of the police report under Florida law. Ammerman also accused TPD of editing interview ' s to ensure unfavorable press coverage as part of a conspiracy with the University to destroy his career. " The concerted press campaign assisted by TPD has destroyed any possibility of the defendant receiving a fair trial, " Ammerman ' s attorney Robert Cox said. " No )uror could possibly decide this case fairly. " The police denied that any conspiracy existed and also dismissed the argument of record confidentiality. Since the investigation had ended, the case was no longer active and Ammerman ' s record was subject to public access. Ammerman later admitted that he had a drug problem and pleaded " no contest " to a possession of cocaine charge. " As I told you, I am addicted to cocaine. I understand that things that happen to me are things I deserve, things I ' ve caused. I very much regret that I also made other people suffer, " Ammerman said. Cox fought the shadier set of allegations, which included tales of sexual domination games with black men and misconduct in the very mentoring program Ammerman founded to give support to African- Americans, by emphasizing Ammerman ' s drug addiction as the reason for his behavior. Assistant State Attorney Jack Poitinger refuted this contention because of the negative message Ammerman ' s dismissal from the charges would have sent in terms of racial disruption.

Leon County Judge William Gary withheld adjucation (charges of guilt) in a ruling on Jan. 26. Gary sentenced Ammerman to seven years probation with the condition of random drug testing. He also hned him $250 in court costs and ordered him to continue drug treatment. The University began a hearing Feb. 17 to determine Ammerman s faculty status. Ammerman was on paid leave at the College of William and Mary during the investigations and after his trial, the University administration w as forced to make a decision about vhether or not he could return to his former position as a tenured professor. Ammerman argued that he should not be fired because of his status as a tenured professor but Dr. Ed Love, a tenured arts professor against Ammerman ' s return, denied the validity of his argument. " Tenure vasn ' t designed to protect lifestyle, " Love said. " It was designed to protect academic freedom. ..the University must set the moral standards for FSU. " In a forum hosted by the Black Student Union, students unanimously called for Ammerman ' s dismissal, not because of the charges he faced, but because of the abuse of the trust that many children placed in him as the leader of several minority empowerment organizations. " He broke the trust of so many people. He led so many people to believe he was helping out young black males and the fact is he was adding to the problem, " BSU president Ahli Moore said. Over 7,000 minority children passed through Ammerman ' s programs, many of vhom talked about certain Ammerman incidents, but only one filed a formal complaint. Ammerman chose to have his case reviewed by a board of three faculty members from the faculty grievance committee, which would advise Provost Robert Glidden whether the retention or expulsion of Ammerman as a professor. Glidden, however, was not required to take their advice. Ammerman requested that the peer hearings stay closed. Former student and attorney for the University trials, William Williams, claimed Ammerman wanted to prove to the kids in the program that he -was not the " ogre " the police reports made him out to be. " To resign in the face of all of that would be to have a black cloud over his head, " Williams said. " That is something he is unwilling to live with. " Even before the University hearings started, rumors were rampant that Ammerman ' s pension and faculty position were at stake since the University had already hired $100,000 in legal help to fire Ammerman. As far back as August, University President Dale Lick said the allegations against Ammerman were " behaviors that would be outrageous and intolerable at any university. " Dr. Freddie Groomes, Executive Assistant of Human Resources, initiated the 1990 investigation that took Ammerman off of the Summer Enrichment Program. She said that she felt Ammerman ■was corrupt and abused the system. Ammerman had a lot of support, however, from former students and colleagues who regarded him a selfless, dedicated and generous man who w orked to get minority students to college and supported them once they vere there. " WTienyou talk about the youth throughout this state who need help and assistance, I can ' t think of anybody who ' s made a difference at the level he has, " Eric Riley, a former student who later became a lobbyist with the Florida Education Association, said. " I think as a department we don ' t know anything more than what we read. I do know that Professor Ammerman has made enormous contributions to the University in the past, " associate history chairperson Valerie Conner said. 46 Student Life embers of the 1990 Enrich- ment Program with Ammerman sho A ' enthusiasm and pride.

Photo hy Steve Stdyer. 48 Student Life gap box STUDENTS TAKE POLITICS OFF CAMPUS Two students, one undergraduate and one law student, hopped on the pohtical bandwagon in the spring to campaign for Seat A in the City Commission elections. Student body President Jeanne Belin and law student, entrepreneur Scott Aladdox campaigned against six other candidates in the primaries. However, Belin lost early when the results ol the hrst primaries were tallied. Maddox went on to defeat attorney Craig Dennis by a ten percent point margin in the Feb. 23 elections. Although 24-year-old Belin was the youngest candidate running lor the City Commission seat, she had previously earned experience in campus politics. Belin hoped to gain support from the University community by giving students a voice in local politics. While her appeal to students ' needs on issues such as transportation, jobs and affordable housing may have hit home with some students, Belin did not narro v her campaign to students. Instead, she attempted to address the needs ol the community. " I have put together a platform that concerns all the citizens of Tallahassee, " Belin said. " Mine is a candidacy to unify the whole community. " The Miami native promised to work on relations between the University and the local government, to create acitizens ' advisorygroup to deal with public input on issues and to keep utility rates " under control. " She did not take a side on the community ' s debate of whether to expand Capital Parkway at $300 million but she supported a streamlined process for permits and development which may have cut through some bureaucratic red tape in community growth. College Democrats President Erik Milman resigned as Belin ' s campaign manager by the end of January based on " a difference in philosophy " with the candidate. Belin believed Milman was too focused on the University community ' s vote and she wanted a manager who was more informed about the community and local politics. Stuart Reese, a local businessman who managed an unsuccessful campaign for property appraiser in the past, w as the man Belin chose to help her move her campaign deeper into the Tallahassee community. Belin waived the $250 qualifying fee by collecting 500 petition signatures, but she was unsuccessful in winning seat 4. However, Belin endorsed Maddox who was still in the race against Craig Dennis. " I don ' t want to be part of the problem but rather part of the solution, " Belin said. In an election with a 27 percent turnout, Maddox beat his contender by 1770 votes and credited his success to the " grassroots " effort. Maddox said he was inspired to run for political office during his days as a page in the Florida Legislature. Born and raised in Tallahassee, Maddox grew up in the political family of Charles Maddox, his father. Maddox received a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and Public administration in December of 1989, and began law school in 1991. He took a few years off from his studies to start his own marketing firm. Spectrum Resources, and he has served on several advisor ' boards for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Big Bend Deaf Service Center. Maddox was named the most outstanding Jaycee President in Florida and the nation during his term as President of the Capital City Jaycees. His " Committment to Tallahassee " campaign for city commissioner gave him more clout than his previous unsuccessful bid for state representative in 1990. In the previous election, Maddox raised over $100,000 but his failed campaign yielded only 34 percent of the votes needed to beat incumbent Representative Hurley Rudd. After losing to Rudd, Maddox became a member of the Alternative Transportation Committee and the Leon County Transportation Mediation Commission which he said has given him more insight on an issue he has been interested in for some time. " Unless we change people ' s attitudes.. .we ' re going to keep frilling the roads like we fill prisons, " Maddox said in view of the city ' s transportation problems. Maddox also committed himself to improving the environment and conducting a " walking poll " as a commissioner who cared about the issues that people in the community were concerned about. " I m going to vote my conscience and what I think is best for the people of Tallahassee, " Maddox said.

However, students were graduating from college at an all-time high. With fewer jobs available, what was a college graduate to do? And more importantly, what was a college degree worth today? " I decided to go to graduate school, because I didn ' t see a bachelor degree as cutting it anymore. Today you need to have an extra edge, a competitive edge. Without a graduate degree I don ' t think you do, " Charles Marelli, a first year graduate student, said. Many students felt the same way so instead of going straight to work right out of school they decided to further their education. Why? Because most of the jobs available were not suited for college graduates with degrees - they were usually low paying jobs without benefits or any of the other economic securities college graduates sought. " I don ' t want just any job, " Amber Rummel, a senior finance marketing major, said. " It seems like the average person in the job market has a college degree. I don ' t want to be ordinary. Jobs are harder to get today and I want to be as competitive as I can. " This influx of applicants for limited graduate school spots brought intense competition in certain areas of study and the skills required. " In the psychology program here , there are about 400 applicants for only 10 spots every year. It ' s considerably competitive, " Marie Hume, a clinical psychology graduate student, said. Along with courses and grades as criteria lor acceptance, graduate schools looked at an applicant ' s experience in the field, such as internships and volunteering. The University ' s departments put forth considerable efforts to make these opportunities available to the students. One such method has been the Directed Individual Study, where a student worked under a professor on practical studies and projects.. " My DIS gives me excellent research experience for a career in psychology. Right now I m involved with research on psychopath assessment, " Katie Gardner, a junior psychology major, said. While many felt this way, others always saw themselves aspiring to higher levels. " I ' ve always wanted to be a lawyer, so law school has always been something I ' ve been preparing myself for, " senior marketing major, Michele Clark said. " It ' s the typ e of career I want and this marketplace requires a competitive degree. I ' ve been living and breathing the LSAT since the semester began, just so I can get into a good school. " To further a college education, entrance exams were required. The exam that was taken depends on the type of graduate degree one seeks to obtain. The Graduate Record Examination was taken lor general graduate programs. The Graduate Management Admissions Test was taken for future business education. The Law School Admissions Test -was for those who desired to attend law school and the Medical College Admission Test was taken by those who wanted to go to medical school. Some of the most common graduate exams taken included each of these exams were challenging and students went about various ways of preparing for them. " I took the Kaplan preparatory course to get ready for the LSAT, " Clark said. " I used the Baron ' s study guide to prepare for the GMAT, " Rummel said. Although there were many different ways to prepare for the tests, the end result was what mattered. " I just want to secure my future. Whether it ' s law school or getting a MBA, I just vant to work in a challenging environment that I will enjoy, " Clark said. Regardless of where one eventually wanted to be in the job market, furthering one ' s education all came do vn to economics and happiness. So, what was a college degree worth today? It was a possible ticket to future education. BY TRICIA TIMMONS MIKE MASTERMAN-SMITH Graduate School 5 1 RAD SCHOO NOT THE CHOICE FOR EVERYONE There used to be a day when the question on every senior ' s mind was " Will I get a job when I graduate? " But with the economy in an employment slump and the increas- ing demand for professionals and the " best of the best " in the work environment, some students chose to enroll in graduate school instead of pursuing a job immediately after graduation. Senior year was both exciting and scary for graduating seniors. They did everything from cramming in every campus event that they failed to make time lor over the past threeyears into their busy social calendars to having spent fitful nights preparing the goodbye speeches lor the zany friends who lived next to them in the dorm. But at the same time, seniors began to make choices that would affect them for the rest of their lives. Some mailed out dozens of resumes or latched on to any internship remotely related to their major so that they could enter the work force after four years of making the grades. Others played the grad school game. The grad school game seemed easy enough to play. II they filled out a few applications and took a standardized test, automatically the job ol their dreams would take care ol them lor the rest ol their lives because they earned a higher degree. But for some, the decision was not so clearly defined. " The application process can be quite grueling, " doc- toral candidate John Carney said. Carney, like many other graduate students worked for a few years betore deciding to get his Master ' s degree in Mass Communication. He then went on to pursue a doctorate for more career opportunities. Some students went to graduate school because their profession of interest required additional schooling. Ca- reers in psychology, law and medicine required higher degrees and many executive and publishing careers sug- gested that graduate school meant promotion and advance- ment opportunity lor employees. Some students decided that graduate school was the right choice for them because they were 100 percent posi- tive that they wanted to learn more about their field before jumping into it. Those who were not completely convinced tried their luck at entry-level job positions. Some students went to graduate school convinced that they were meant to be lawyers or doctors, then alter a lew years cooped up in clinical labs or in debt Irom the law school bill realized too late that they had made the wrong decision. Graduate school was nearly two-thirds more expensive per credit hour than undergraduate tuition and many learned that higher degrees were not always guaran- tees lor securing dream jobs. Others were ambitious enough to tackle the odds and approached graduate school with a serious attitude. " I ' m going to graduate school because I want to be a school psychologist and I need a higher degree, " senior Karin Nolte said. Despite individual differences in post- graduate decisions, students made choices that they would have to live with. With or w ithout a few more years in the books, they may have come to the realization that many seniors have. ..the decision was never meant to be an easy one. " I leel that a graduate degree today is becoming the bachelor degree of the past, where it was unique to have bachelors then, it is unique to have your masters or doctor- ate now, " Carney said.

Days made up of 8 a.m. classes and all night study sessions for that forgotten test were a part or the life of a student. However, thisyear brought with it new things: the first class of the undergraduate film students was graduated, a cure for cancer was found, and research was completed in South Africa. Aside from the activities and sports offered, another reason that brought people here w as academics. Whether it vas the freshman struggling to adjust or the sophomores slash juniors w ho couldn ' t seem to meet the GPA requirement to get into their respective schools, there was someone who said that " this was the year, their grades were going to get better. " There w as also the balance of being on the Dean ' s List every semester while managing to still have a " life " that didn ' t result in moving into Strozier Library. Regardless of the category a person fell under, everyone started the year with high expectations of what they would be able to achieve after a summer of recuperation. There was no telling what the year would bring but most just prayed for the best. The overall hope was for improvement for those that needed it and the sustenance for those that didn ' t. At least there was jomething to strive for. A. .t the Career Center, students often received helpful advice about their uncer- tain futures.

The annual pledge drive, " Work a Day in Public Service, " kicked off Feb. 26 and lasted through mid-March. The day was established in order to find law students who were willing to give up a day ' s pay to help future law students afford the rising costs of college. One hundred percent of the money went straight to the students w ho applied for such help. The application process included filling out an application and developing a proposed outline of apublic service project. The applications were then judged by a counsel made up of two faculty 44 members, t-wo students and the The Scholarship helped me get a taste of what public ' ' of interest law is aU about.

This money helped ten students each received $1200. " I probably wouldn ' t have been able to attend law school without the scholarship, " 23 year old Caria Cody, a second year law student who received money from the project said. The students who received money literally had to work for it. They were placed in jobs with local businesses and public service groups who agreed to employ them during the summer months. " The scholarship helped me get a taste of what public interest law is all about, " 23year old Celia Gowen, also a secondyear law student, said. Students were not the only people asked to help out their fellow students, local lawyers donated money as well. " We either go through the phone book or we find them through vord of mouth, " McMillan said. The Feb. 26 pledge drive was held at the Lake Ella American Legion Hall. The band Work for Hire was the entertainment for the evening as was Elle Methvin who opened for the group playing acoustic guitar. There was a $5 cover charge for the party. The purpose of the event was the chance to explain the project to perspective donors. In a previous year, cartoonist Johnny Hart, of B.C. comics fame, designed a t-shirt which was given out to those who participated. For the most recent event, the t-shirt design was that of a student portraying a likeness of President Clinton and his wife Hillary. Printed around the couple were quotes from the President ' s inaugural speech. This past fund raiser went very well, according to Lorene Nagal with the Partners for Public Service group. The students set up tables throughout the law school in order to catch passer-bys and inform them of the goal they set. The most successful fund raiser was their kick off party last February. The event raised $6,000 dollars, which meant that they were able to pay stipends for four students. Over 200 law students and members of the Tallahassee community attended the party. The dean of the law school matched the amount raised by 50 percent and gave $3,000 to the cause. That money is to be held over; however, for the next fund raiser so the group vill be ahead instead of starting from scratch. Not only did the dean match what was pledged, local law firms matched w hat the students pledged. ,■ 1 60 Academics veceiving scholarships ot $1200 each were Carla Cody and Ceceha Gowen.

Specifically, members were concerned with research on pound seizures which required live animals for experimentation. " We, as members of the Humane Society, are here to prevent the cruel treatment of all animals, " John Schroger, a member of the society, said. The Society ' s members were convinced that four University researchers and a local physician only applied for membership so that they could take over the society and alter its beliefs, vhich strongly protested animal research. " I want to join this organization because of my knowledge of animals. I thought I had some expertise they w ould be interested in, " researcher Robert Werner, a veterinarian and head of the University ' s Lab Animal Resources Department, said. He added that the three other professors who applied for membership only vanted to " present a balanced view so people can see both sides of the issues. " policies and funding pressures or where they stood in the eyes of the city commissioners. Members of the Society claimed that these researchers have lobbied against restrictions on pound seizures in the past. " We don ' t have any obligation to be fair to these people, " Tom Duffy, a local lawyer and member of the Society, said. Duffy strongly encouraged members to revise the group s application form by adding new questions regarding applicants ' occupations and 44 beliefs. He also suggested a requirement that applications be notarized. Following deliberation, the members of the Society voted in favor of forming a committee to revievk ' revisions of the Society ' s application forms and specified new membership restrictions. " I believe they should be allowed to join. These researchers have a lot of information at their disposal that could, in the long run, benefit the society ' s goals. Though they seem to conflict with what the Society believes, even animal researchers are starting to become humanitarians, " We as members of the Humane Society are here to prevent the cruel treatment of animals. ■John Schroger, member The problem was complicated because the Society Wes Grant, a junior biology major, said. received tax money to run an animal shelter. This fact created an additional conflict of interest. Could a city funded organization have such exclusive policies based upon philosophical beliefs? Tallahassee City Commissioner Penny Herman said the exclusionary policy was cause for concern because of the society ' s draw on tax dollars. The Society ' s president, Pam Bruns, said the organization w as unclear on ho v it would weigh membership " It ' s relative to what ' s humane. They (the Society) must follo v the guidelines that they have originally set up, " sophomore philosophy major Sonny Grainger said. The City of Tallahassee and Leon County commissions both put forth legislation and voted that the Leon County Humane Society had to revise its statutes to include a non-discriminatory clause in its membership practices. The researchers involved were permitted to join. bylMQchaelMasterman nih 62 Academics . „.,.,.- " ' ' OUR m •UUNATt MONEY ; S T A HOMELESS PET OUNTEER YOUR if fHIENDS TO HELP W Humane Society 63 amgitaD EkAssot does cddhi femil Dining out at the local pizza parlor this and not have as high ol expectations and was a relaxing and tun event lor the average develop methods ol coping with it, " Figley said, person.

Since cancer was one of the leading causes of death in the United States, there has been an ongoing search tor an affordable cure w ithout dangerous side effects. Perhaps the scariest thing about cancer was that anyone could develop it and there were a variety oi causes. Even those who led the healthiest lifestyles could become victims of this possibly iatal disease. Many tavorite leisure time activities were dangerous to one ' s health, including smoking, sun tanning and poor dieting. Even having clothes dry cleaned could promote the chances of getting cancer. Fiber, beta carotene and general " healthy " foods were dietary recommendations for reducing the chances of getting cancer. A chemist ry professor. Dr. Robert Holton, made headway in the battle against cancer while to providing an excellent example of how basic research benefited the University. Larry Ablele, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences said, " Many professors and graduate students over the years have contributed to a body of knowledge in which the payoff is not obvious when the vork is being done, but which leads to important breakthroughs. Each step of the process builds on the next step. " His 20years of research began with the search for a method to produce large quantities of an anti cancer drug, taxol, in an efficient, affordable way. In 1971 taxol was discovered in the bark of Pacific yew trees. Until recently, approximately 12,000 Pacificyew trees had to be sacrificed in order to obtain enough taxol to treat just one patient. Holton developed a process that allowed the needles, instead Some people believe taxol may turn out to be the first effective broad spectrum anti-cancer drug. -Dr. Robert Holton, chemistry professor ol the bark of the yew tree to be used. This preserved approximately 12,000 trees while producing 2.5 pounds of the drug per tree. On the 11th the Food and Drug Administration permitted Bristol-Myers Squibb, a major pharmaceutical company, to market taxol for use against ovarian cancer in cases which alternative treatments were ineffective. Its high effectiveness in controlling certain types of cancerous tumors was unheard of in previous anti-cancer drugs. " Some people believe taxol may turn out to be the first effective broad spectrum anti-cancer drug " , said Holton. Taxol has also been successful with breast cancer and testing has begun with head, neck and lung cancer. Once it was on the market, the drug could be prescribed for any type of cancer. Eventually, the company, who already shelled out hundreds of millions of dollars for research, -was expected to use Holton s process for all of their taxol production. This -would bring a large share of the sales to Holton and to the University. " In this case, the University would benefit financially even if Holton ' s process were not used to provide taxol. His research alone provided Bristol-Myers Squibb with the incentive to support 1 .7 million in additional taxol research at FSU over fiveyears " . Associate Vice President for Research, Mike Devine said. The research contributed a rare learning opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students. In addition, the University stood to earn 4.25 percent royalty for all sales of taxol earned from Holton s patents. Approximately 60 percent went to the university. by Heather Workman 66 Academics C hemistry students prepare their assigmnents in the lab .

Since then, the school has grown substantially " with an increase of faculty, students, classes, equipment and funds. Often referred to as the " guinea pigs " of the undergraduate program, the original 20 students, the graduating class of 1993, were joined by some 80 others to complete what was then the maximum capacity of 100-120 students. There have been numerous changes in the program since 1989. While i some classes have been dropped, others have been added or changed, and the order in w hich they were taken was switched as w ell. " The seniors have taken classes we 11 nevertake while we ' ve taken classes they haven ' t had yet, " sophomore Trey Turner said. " It ' s funny, the seniors have already shot and edited their BFA thesis films but haven ' t yet taken a course in sound. " Changes were made in the program to help better prepare the undergraduates for the industry. There will be more changes changes made in the next few years because of the newness of the Film School. It was still shifting and evolving into a film school for Florida. " The Film School is teaching me all the basics. I feel that I need to learn the camera and lighting, improve my writing skills and eventually direct, " sophomore John Martin said. " But I need a strong foundation in the basics before I go and try to compete for a job. " Many students chose the film school over the older, more prestigious New York University and University The seniors have taken classes we ' ll never take while we ' ve taken classes they haven ' t yet. n -Trey Turner, sophomore of Southern California Film programs because of the University ' s program design. The University was the only Film School that paid for the students ' film and film processing. These costs were very expensive and deterred many financially unable students from entering this field. " This process had its ups and downs. The positive of the school providing the costs is there are many students here who would never enter the industry any other way, " Steve Swartz, professor and filmmaker in residence, said. " However, the down side is that the students do not learn how to raise money for their films and it could paint an unrealistic picture of how the real film industry truly is. " A thesis film, necessary for graduation, could cost anywhere between $10,000- 40,000. At the University, $10,000 was budgeted for each thesis film. However, unlike other film schools, the University owned the students ' films after completion and had complete control over the future of the film. At NYU and USC, the students films w ere their own and could be used as calling cards into the industry. The thesis films produced at the University, however, vere not any one students ' work. Rather, they were conglomeration of many students ' efforts. Five seniors were assigned to five positions on each film: producer, director, cinematographer, sound, and editor. The other positions were filled by juniors, sophomores and freshman. These films were entered into film festivals like their counterparts but the Film School decided which films entered which festivals. This made these films more calling cards for the University than for the students themselves.

The Arts 83 Students tutor Afltegetbywiialitlfeh fiDmlheiff One might wonder how an athlete had time to devote hours to studying. However, it had to be done. The administration, coaches, staff and NCAA enforced this if thestudent did not have the self disipUne themself. Each athelete put in many hours of har d work and dedication through practice time, personal training, travel (to and Irom games) and games. The sport was demanding. With NCAA regulations and tight competition, athletes could no longer alford to be second best in any aspects ol their college careers. On the same note, the universities were starting to care not only about producing world class champions but also about producing world class human beings. Much of the public did not see the personal side of the athlete, they were only exposed to the glitter of physical achievement. However, when the spotlight came down, that was where it stopped. Not for the athlete. Along with their personal problems and injuries, athletes was also expected to do well in academics. With a hectic practice schedule and a lull-course load, they had little time lor a a social life. Any free time had to be put into study and rest. A great deal more was expected from them, not only by the coaches and the public, but also by professors and academic advisors. When compared with the average student, the athlete ' s time spent in a structured environment was almost doubled. The academic support for service intercollegiate athletics required study hall hours lor all athletes and provided tutorial help in any subject. The study room was located in the Moore Athletic Center and was open every day of the week with the exception of Saturday. The tutors really know their stuff. The one on one with the tutor really helps me feel more like a person than a number. -Larry Fleming, football player During the time of recruiting, the Academic Enhancement Plan was presented to the student athlete and the parents. It stated that " all freshman and transfer students will be required to attend study sessions five days per week, a ten hour commitment, for the fall semester. " All athletes with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or below, or have fallen below a 2.0 for the last semester had this same requirement. Any other requirements were determined by the athlete ' s academic advisor, based upon his or her progress and career goals. All decisions were reviewed with the respective coaches. " The tutors really know their stuff. The one on one w ith the tutor really helps me learn the material and helps me feel more like a person than a number. With 100 - 300 people in a class you feel o ve rwhel m ed and are not able to ask questions when you do not understand. Ho vever, with a tutor it is more personal, and I learn more, " football player Larry Fleming said. There were usually tw o or three students being tutored at the same time and the students w ere responsible for meeting the entire semester. " I think the tutors help the students prepare for A) classroom w ork and B) testing, " academic support director Nick Menacoff said. The athletes ' response to this program was outstanding. Suddenly athletes were motivated not only on the playing field, but in the classroom as well. This type of support group changed the attitudes of both the athletes and the public. Goals and priorities had been rearranged to make earning a degree first and winning the game second. 84 Academics A Softball player attends a session with a tutor.

Cleveland developed this program in the lall and implemented it in the spring. She offered nutritional counsel on an individual basis but wanted to reach more students without requiring them to come to the health center. Residence halls as well as sorority and fraternity groups were targeted for the program. They learn about diflferent techniques of weight loss, what may be harmful about it and what is the way to lose body fet. n -Mae Cleveland, nutrition and fitness specialist some authority figure, " EA DeCastro, math education major, said. Several of the topics discussed were weight control, proper methods of weight loss and the amount ol fat in the diet. Some dieters became obsessive in their weight loss and developed eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia. Although the peer educators were not trained to handle these individuals, they were aware ol the symptoms of eating disorders. The educators were also knowledgeable a bout the Health An effective technique of the program w as its use of Center ' s counseling services and referred troubled students students, or peer educators, to disseminate the information to them, to other students. Peer educators were not required to be nutrition majors, they simply needed to be enthusiastic about learning the material and teaching it to others. Peer educators were given training sessions to learn some facts but most of their information came from their own research. These volunteer students discovered a problem, interviewed someone in the nutritional department and gathered their own material to present to groups. Peer educators distributed pamphlets on specific subjects to students with individual needs. For example, African Americans had more problems with high blood pressure. The pamphlet on this topic advised high blood pressure victims to limit their intake of salt and alcohol. This and other pamphlets allowed peer educators to answer more individual questions.

These group activities were beneficial to the educators as well as the students. Peer advisers learned teaching techniques and became comfortable with speaking to a group. " Their enthusiasm is real high so that makes it rewarding for everyone, " Cleveland said. Assisted by Dr. Cleveland, the peer educators developed a cookbook for college students. It contained easy to make and economically reasonable recipes lull of nutritional value. The cookbook was available to students -who attended the peer education groups or visited with Dr. Cleveland. " I like to cook but it can get expensive when you have to buy a lot of ingredients. The recipes in this cookbook were simple but tasted great. It also made me feel good to know I was eating something healthy, " junior Tiffani Pittenger said.

She received her both her undergraduate degree and her doctorate here. In her twenty-second year at the University she was able to look back at the changes and was proud. This ability to reflect allowed her to plan a future for her place at the university that has seen growth and improvement. " My proudest moment had to have been the dedication of the Union expansion in 1988. There was eightyears of work that went into it from ' the initial planning and hiring designers and the construction of the new building that took threeyears, " Turner said. The future of the union only held more of the same: changes and growth. " There is going to be another expansion beginning in the fall of 1993. Three million dollars was received from the Capital Improvement Trust Fund. It should becorhpleted by 1995, " Turner said. The expansion will include new food facilities and will cater more to the students. " The fact that the new car garage will be across the street will be an advantage. That parking will bring more people into fhe union and we want something for those people, " Turner said. In all the expansion and change there are some things that Turner does not want altered or modified. " We ' ve seen the union grow over the years with the University.

" Nor did we settle for second best. In fact, tor the eighth year in a row, the football team won a major bowl game, the basketball team advanced to the " Elite 8 " of the NCAA tournament, surpassing last year ' s Sweet 16 appearance. No other school in history has achieved this feat in these three sports for two consecutive years. The Lady Seminole Softball team also made it to the World Series for the fourth consecutive year. But there ' s more to Florida State athletics than the high profile sports and scholarship athletes. Club teams, supported by the student members, traveled to other schools and competed as well. For example, the women ' s rugby club established themselves as on of the nation ' s best. Intramurals gave all students the opportunity for recreation and competition in a variety of sports. So, whether you had a starting position on a Seminole team, or a member of an intramural squad, or were one of the tomahawk-choppin ' , die-hard fans v ho packed Doak Campbell, Dick Howser, or the Civic Center, the Florida State University athletic tradition gave you jomethLug to budd on.

In August 1991, the Florida State Seminoles headed into the season as everyone ' s number one team. Go to August 1992. The Tribe started as high as 2 in some polls, as low as 9 in others. But it wasn ' t the polls causing the exciteme nt for the team, it was their debut in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and the expectation that they would -win the ACC title. Was Coach Bobby Bowden grateful for having the 1 pressure off his shoulders? " We can certainly live without it. Being number one just makes things more difficult. I try not to worry about the polls before and during the season, because the Jan. 2 poll is the only one that matters, " Bowden said. The team faced a full ACC schedule, starting vith Duke at home and traveling to Clemson ' s Death Valley the following Saturday. Spectators called the Florida State- Clemson matchup as the key ACC game of the season. However, Bowden w asn ' t underestimating the other ACC teams. " We face N.C. State the week after Clemson and that will be a tough game. All of the teams in the league are improving. We could get beat if we don ' t stay focused. " In addition to the ACC schools, the Tribe also faced the traditional rivals Aliami and Florida, both of whom also started the season ranked in the top 10. Although they were just as talented, this team had a different look from the previous season. Junior two-sport standout Charlie Ward took over as starting quarterback. Linebacker Marvin Jones was a pre-season All- American candidate. Fans expected to see quite a bit of the past years freshmen stars. Derrick Brooks and Marquette Smith. Smith, however, decided to redshirt this season. According to Bowden, " Marquette wanted to attend graduate school and wants to have his scholarship available for that. " Bowden was also pleased with the new freshman class, which included quarterback Danny Kanell and wide receiver Tamarick Vanover, vho were both expected to play this season. Another new aspect of Seminole football was the construction of the ne v University Center. This would enclose the south endzone of Doak Campbell stadium and in- crease capacity to 70,000. Although the entire project would take about four years, one of the im- mediate benefits was a new hi-tech scoreboard, the biggest in the state. aSC " " lfe il%«s. lN» i| xijBl ' |piS .

As a senior in academics, Alexander reached to be the best at whatever task he attempted. After taking the SAT exam, Alexander thought it was extremely biased lor the Afro-American minority, so he set out to devise a plan to help better prepare the young adults. He and his sister, Leslie, began a SAT preparation course for minority students in her church in the summer. The six week prep course was a strategic tactic to help students with the wording ol the questions in a language that the student could understand. The course was also planned to instill confidence within the student. " Without confidence it is hard to accomplish anything, " Alexander said. Alexander told the success story ol a lootball player at Reagan High School who saw a great improvement on his test score alter completing the prep course. " Michael Belle called to thank me lor the prep course because his score improved 200 points on the math section and 350 on the English section.

This SAT prep course earned Alexander the Toyota Leadership Award which was based on academic excellence and achievements. " A lot ol people ask you, ' Well, you are doing all this and you are doing all that, how can you not have a big head? " Alexander said. " Coming from a family of thirteen, with seven brothers and six sisters, you get credit for what you do. If you save the world, they say ' OK, good, you saved the world. ' Then you ' re back to the same Ken Alexander beforeyou saved the world. " Organizing his schedule around football, fun and finals, Alexander applied a fundamental concept taught by his mom. " If I have a paper to write and I have been invited to a party, I must write half ol the paper. Then I let myself go to the party, " Alexander said. " But I come home early so I can finish the rest ol the paper. " When Alexander thought of a hero, ideal or role model it was always the same person — his mom. " I have the most respect for my mom because she raised 13 kids by herself. She has had to go through a lot and she has always came out on top. " Alexander said. " When I am on the field and I see four guys coming at me and I know I ve got to make a hole, I just think back on my mom, because I kno-w there is nothing that I can go through that my mom has not had to go through and she has always persevered. So I can make the tackle and overcome any obstacle because of my mom.

Football 101 Ml Wi Kick-affd became touchdowns when true fresh- man Tamarick Vanover was on the return Not many freshman got the chance to make an impact during their first season of college football, especially at a football powerhouse such as Florida State. It freshman were not redshirted, they usually spent their first season behind the upperclassmen on the depth chart. Every once in a while, however, a freshman came along that wowed everyone. Lawrence Dawsey was one of those; Marvin Jones did it in 1990; and 1992 was the season for Tamarick Vanover. Florida State almost did not get the talented Tamarick. Both the Seminoles and Miami heavily recruited the Leon High standout. ITe did not decide until the morning of signing day, and even signed his letter of intent with Florida State wearing a Miami baseball cap. Tamarick ' s best memory of the season was his first start versus N.C. State. With five minutes left in the first half, Charlie Ward had not completed a pass. Then the Ward-Vanover connection hit. Vanover caught three passes in a row, including a 60-yard bomb tor a touchdown, his first in college. " Charlie came into the huddle at the beginning of the series and said, ' Fellas, it ' s time to go. ' I said to myself, if we can complete one pass we 11 get rolling. Charlie began to look tor me and I was just catching the ball, " Vanover said. In the weeks following the N.C. State game, Vanover ' s exposure increased. Against Wake Forest and Miami, he returned his first two college kickotfs tor touchdowns, running 96yards against the Demon Deacons and 94 yards against the Hurricanes. The Florida Gators obviously did not take warning as they kicked off to him twice and watched him Stretching Out With N.C.

Jackson had 101 yards on 12 carries for the day. Photo by RyaLf Lee. run 80 and 76 yards. Vanover credits fellow receiver Shannon Baker and receivers coach John Eason as his greatest influences in football. " Coach Eason takes time with his players to get to know them. I had already known Shannon for a couple o years and when I came to school here, he showed me the ropes. " When you are a receiver on a team that boasts other great receivers such as Baker, Kevin Knox, Kez McCorvey and Matt Frier, how do you handle competition among teammates? Vanover said, " I really don ' t think about the competition, it just makes me work harder. " The freshman was remembered when post- season honors were handed out. He was awarded the ACC Rookie of the Year and Football Ne» i Freshman of the Year titles. He was named an All-American Kick Returner by two sources and was ACC Rookie of the Week five times. Vanover knew how hard it was to choose a college, so what would he tell recruits trying to make that same difficult decision? " I would tell them about the success we had with the shotgun this past season, remind them that we ranked higher than Florida and Miami and that next season we ' re playing to win it all.

Tamarick Vanover started the Seminole scoring with a 60-yard reception for a TD. Shannon Baker also caught two passes for touchdowns. Tailbacks Sean Jackson and Tiger McMillon had good games, rushing lor 101 and 92 yards. It was McMillon ' s first career start. Dan Mowrey kicked a career best 42- yard field goal, and Corey Sawyer intercepted three passes, tying an FSU record. The defense held N.C. State to two held goals and one TD. Moms and Dads came out for the annual Parents Weekend as the Seminoles hosted the Demon Deacons. The highly favored Tribe saw the receivers and rushers improve their stats. Despite fumbling the ball four times, the offense managed to rack up points against the Wake defense. Charlie Ward celebrated his first interception-free game by throwing for 240 yards and 1 TD. Freshman Tamarick Vanover emerged as the player to beat, scoring on a 96-yard kickoff return. The kicking game struggled as Dan Mowrey missed two field goals and John Wimberly averaged 33.2 yards on punts. However, coach Bowden said, " I was pretty pleased. ..except for some penalties and inconsistency. " " I ' ve put pressure on myself to make the big plays. Today, I didn ' t worry about it.

Since Charlie War d had trouble passing, freshman Dan Kanell came in at OB. Kanell got the offense close enough for Dan Mowrey to kick a 37- yard field goal. Sean Jackson, a former high school quarterback, also got into the action when he threw 46-yard pass to Tamarick Vanover. Corey Sawyer also had a 74- yard punt return for a touchdown. Coming up with the needed win, the Tribe improved to 5-0 in the conference. Ankle, shoulder and knee injuries were jiut part of the game for center Robbie Baker Some people did not understand why grown men would willingly participate in such a violent sport as football. Athletes and sports enthusiasts stated it was the ove of the game. " Others believed it to be stupidity. Center Robbie Baker, an expert on this particular question, claimed it was a little of both. A filih-year senior, Baker had more opportunities to think about that question than he cared to recall. Baker Jif played football for nine ,5n%iHHP years with no injuries HR before coming to college. " However, by the end of his filth season. Baker had P undergone six surgeries. HK Four were tor his right shoulder and one was for his right ankle. The surgery that blemished Baker ' s final season was on his knee. Baker ' s left knee was injured during a two-a- day practice in early August. Initially, Baker and the team doctor chose to work with the knee and hoped time would heal it. When he made it back lor the third game against Clemson, it appeared the prognosis had been correct. Unfortunately, appearances were deceiving. During the game, the knee continuously swelled up and was hit. The next weekend, instead of playing in the N.C. State game. Baker w as in surgery to remove a bone chip, shave the knee cap down and take out pinched tissue. Incredibly, he was back playing just two weeks later. " I had no choice, it was my last season. It was a combination of stubbornness, stupidity and love of the game, " Baker said. However there was more involved than physical pain. After the 1991 season, Baker had the final surgery to reconstruct his right shoulder. After working for months to get the shoulder as strong as it had been, the knee injury was traumatic. " I worked so hard to get back and then all of a sudden to have everything taken away, it killed me mentally, ' Baker said. But once again injuries could not keep Baker from playing football. As proven by the number of times he had returned from surgeries and by playing the entire 1991 season injured, the combination of the love for the game and " stupidity " went a long way in overcoming setbacks. After the knee surgery, Baker ' s goal was to play in the Miami game, an unlikely possibility considering he had just two weeks to gain the strength in his knee back. How ever, nothing made Baker forget the pain like " the big game " and he was cleared to play. " In all reality, I should have waited. I did not even know how strong my knee was for that game because I w as afraid they would not allow me to play. I had made up my mind that playing Miami was something I had to do , " Baker said. Some thought coming back so soon was irrational or stupid. Others, though, saw and appreciated the reasoning behind Robbie Baker ' s actions. ..simply the love of the game.

However, this was not the case for all football players. Some students came to Florida State to w alk-on and tried out for a p osition on the team. This did not necessarily mean that they would have a chance to play, but most were willing to strive for their shot at glory. The walk-on players were just like regular students. They paid for their own room, board, tuition and books as well as physicals in order to play and insurance in case they got hurt. They also did not get to travel to all the road games. But they worked just as hard as the scholarship players, if not harder, because they had something to prove. If they worked hard and showed improvement, sometimes walk-ons were offered scholarships. Through hard hits on defense, smooth catches on offense and fast feet on both, they had to prove that they deserved a chance to be in the " show. " Why would someone work so hard for no glory? It seemed like a large sacrifice for something which Webster described as " a game played between two teams on a rectangular held, having two goal posts at each end, whose object is to get the ball over a goal line or between goal post by running, passing or kicking. " For the players, both walk-on and scholarship, however, football was much more. " To me, football is a contact sport. To play requires an athlete to be in top Firdt, Grab the Ball...

For a walk-on player who had to try out to make the team, football meant no less. Those special players had such a love for the sport, it did not matter that they paid for school. What did matter was that they might get a chance to play in front of 66,000+ people. " Football is a stress reliever. You can ' t think of anything else while you are out there or you 11 get hurt, " sophomore outside linebacker David Walker said. " As a scholarship player you have a better chance at playing and all of us walk-on players are always hoping for a scholarship. But I am playing for the fun of it. If it stopped being fun I ' d quit, scholarship or not. " The football players, both walk-on and scholarship, were both working toward the same goal. ..winning football games. " I respect all walk-on players. Being a scholarship player I go to school free, live free, eat free and get benefits that the ' don ' t receive.

When Tech got the ball back, FSU added insult to the comeback by sacking Shawn Jones in the endzone lor a safety and 2 more points. FSU The Seminoles grabbed their first ACC football title as they defeated Virginia up in Charlottesville. Largely a defensive effort, the team played without the injured Marvin Jones and held the Cavalier defense to 195 yards and snagged two interceptions. Kez McCorvey led the offense with 138 yards rushing, and touchdowns were scored by Charlie Ward (16-yard run) and Tamarick Vanover (27- yard pass). The win assured the Tribe of a New Year ' s Day bowl game. The players also got to make good on another deal. In August, running back coach Billy Sexton promised that if they won the ACC, he would let them shave his head. So after the game, in the locker room, Cxiach Sexton got a bald new look.

IRl iV 1 By Namn FUnfd After enormoiu uccedd cu a Seminole Marvin Jonct plans to tackle the NFL The end of the season also marked the end of an illustrious college career for junior linebacker Marvin Jones. " There ' s no question, Marvin is unique. In my honest opinion, he is the best Inebacker in America, " linebackers coach Wally Burnham said. " Some guys look throughyou, like kids do to teachers in the classroom. Marvin soaks up everything like a sponge. It may be something I ' ve said 100 times, yet Marvin listens every time. " Jones ranked seventh on the school ' s all-time list with 369 tackles in three seasons. Jones was only 18 when he earned the starting linebacker job and the nickname " Shadetree " (because the heat overwhelmed him the first day ol practice). With a 4.5 second 40-yard dash and 38.5 inch vertical leap (a team best), it was clear why he started every game but one. Straight out ot Miami Northwestern High, Jones set a Seminole record for freshmen with 133 tackles. " As a freshmen, I was more of a wildman. I probably could ' ve had 180 tackles had I played under control, " Jones said. Jones developed a great deal since that season. In 1991, he finished with 75 solo tackles, 125 overall. His junior year, he led the team with 1 1 1 tackles, despite a severe ankle strain during the season. Jones captured the Lombard) Award, given to the country ' s top lineman. " I wish I could break this into 1 1 pieces and give one to each ot my teammates, " Jones said. ' You can ' t be a great linebacker without great lineman. " Jones also received the Butkus award, given annually to college football ' s premier linebacker. He placed fourth in the Heisman race, was The Sporting News Player of the Year and one of two players to repeat as consensus All-Americans. " I like to get big hits because it changes an opponent ' s mind. You put a big hit on a guy early in a game, and let him know, ' this is how it ' s going to be all day, ' and he might as well put on an FSU jersey. He ' s ours, " Jones said. Against UF running back Errict Rhett, Jones said, " He got around me early and said something like he can ' t be stopped. But see, I was still a little rusty. I got some WD-40, warmed up and turned out his lights. He doesn ' t know, but I eat running backs with ketchup. " Jones was influenced by his old er brother Fred, a former FSU football player. " He ' s very supportive, " Jones said. ' He ' s like a father figure. We talk constantly, he ' s an irreplaceable person. " After the Orange Bowl, Jones declared his eligibility for the NFL draft. With his impressive record, Jones was almost assured of a first round pick. " When I first got here, I thought he ' d be up on himself but then I got to know him, " inside linebacker Henri Crockett said. " He always took extra time to help me. He even wanted the freshmen to hang with him. He has proven himself on the college level, it ' s time for him to prove himself in the pros. " One of Many TD ' The Seminole ' s last ACC game of the season against the Mary- land Terrapins proved to be a one-sided, high-scoring battle. Here, William Floyd scores six of the team ' s 69 points, while teammate Robbie Baker helps block. Football 109 Once again, the Seminole prove that they may be the country ly be t team in podt-dea on Jan. 2: " You know, Florida State may be the best team in the country right no ' w. " This became a tamihar statement as the Seminoles ranked 2 in the polls, extending their streak of top-4 finishes to six years. They finished behind Alabama, vho upset Miami in the Sugar Bo-wl. Miami, the only tarnish on the Tribe ' s 11- 1 record, ranked 3. No one could argue the Seminoles ' post- season success. The team remained undefeated in bowl games since 1982. With the Orange Bo-wl vin over Nebraska, they possessed a winner ' s trophy from every major bowl except the Rose. A fifth-year senior won 53 of 61 games, five bowls, and finished every season during his career ranked in the nation ' s top four. While players, coaches, and fans were pleased with the season, some expressed frustration at al ' ways coming close to a national championship. Without Miami on the schedule, the team would have von every game in 1987, ' 88 and ' 92. Charlie Ward said, " Take Miami off our schedule, we ' re undefeated. But we ' re not going to do that. " The ACC championship highlighted the season. The Tribe tore through all conference opponents in their first ACC season. This included come-from-behind victories at Clemson and Georgia Tech and convincing home wins over Duke, Wake Forest, and Maryland. Once again, Seminoles garnered many honors and awards. The most celebrated player, junior linebacker Marvin Jones, won the Lombardi and Butkus awards, was Sporting News Player of the Year, a two-time consenus All-American and Nowhere to Run Gator tailback Errict Rhett finds his run cut short by the All-American, Lombardi, and Butkus a vard winner Marvin Jones. With 1 1 tackles, Jones led a Seminole defense that al- lo ved UF only A yards rush- ing. Photo by Rand HilL finished fourth in the Heisman race. Not a surprise, Jones headed for the NFL. Quarterback Charlie Ward overcame a slow start and became ACC Player of the Year and sixth in Heisman voting. His name came up often as a front-runner for next year ' s trophy. Freshman Tamarick Vanover made headlines by returning his first two kickoffs tor TDs, earning All-American status in addition to Football News and ACC Rookie of the Year titles. Other honorees included Derrick Brooks, Patrick McNeil, and Corey Sawyer, who -were named to the sophomore All- American team. Defensive tackle Dan Footman won the Brian Piccolo Award for the ACC ' s most courageous player. Footman sustained a serious knee injury, underwent reconstructive surgery, and had 65 tackles for the season. Finishing the season with such a flourish, speculations started early about next season. Many put the Seminoles as preseason 1, and why not? Most top players returned, and the Tribe recruited one of the nation ' s best freshman classes. They could prove it with w ins in their tough schedule: the ACC, in-state foes Miami and Florida, and Notre Dame. 110 sports BuMin ' a Move Fullback William Floyd reaks through the Gatori lefense to score anothei Lhdown.

Breaking school records, boosting individual stats, high finishes in tournaments and winning more games than not were some highlights of a season of great improvement. In addition to success, improvement resulted in many honors as well. The volleyball season began with the Gator Invitational in Gainesville. The Lady Noles finished second behind the Gators. The team played in four other regular season tournaments, winning their own Florida State Classic, the South Florida Invitational in Tampa, and the Hofstra Invitational in Hempsted, New York. They placed third in the Golden Dome Classic at Notre Dame. With a 24-6 regula r season record, the squad arrived at the ACC Tournament tied with Duke atop the conference. After defeating Virginia and Maryland in the first rounds, the team lost a five-game heartbreaker against the Blue Devils in the championship match. But they were not through yet. They received an invitation to the NCAA Tournament and played UF in the first round. Ironically, Florida State ' s season ended just as it began, with a loss at the hands ol the Lady Gators. The Seminoles ' 26-8 record vas definitely a marked improvement over the 16-15 record of 1991. It did not go unnoticed. They finished the season ranked 8th in the South Region. Two seniors played instrumental roles in the squad ' s success. Bianca Stevens finished a four- year career with honors as she was named to the All- Tournament Team at the Golden Dome Classic, the Hofstra Invitational, and the ACC Tournament. She was also listed on the AU-ACC team for the season. Sherry Cowling, a transfer student, played only one season for FSU but made her name known during that time. She was on the All-Tournament teams at UF, USF, Hofstra, and ACC, and also made the All-ACC team. Academically, she scored high, appearing on the GTE All-America volleyball third team. There were not just seniors in the spotlight, however. Sophomore Luiza Ramos was MVP at both the USF and Hofstra Invitationals, and made the All-Tournament teams at UF, Notre Dame and the ACC. Ramos also made 2nd-team All-ACC. Junior Vicki Zinkil, whose name already appeared in the record books, improved her standings by moving to second in all-time solo blocks, fourth all-time in block assists and fifth in career total blocks. Head Coach Cecile Reynaud received the honor of ACC Coach of the Year. Team statistics also improved. In 1991, the record of matches played atTullyGymwas8-7. This season they improved that home record to 11-2. In five-game matches, the team advanced from a 1-8 record in 1991 to 5-3 in the 1992 season.

With a 6-1 conference record, they entered the tournament seeded second behind Duke. The Blue Devils had the same record, but gained the top position by defeating the Lady Seminoles during the season. The squad ' s first game was an easy defeat over the Virginia Cavaliers in three games: 15-7, 15- 3, 15-4. In the semifinals they faced iMaryland. A five- game, come-from- behind win over the Terrapins set up the 1- 2 championship match against Duke. After falling 9-15 in the first game, the Seminoles took the next two, but then dropped the last two sets with identical 11- 15 scores. Luiza Ramos and Deanna Bosschaert had career- high numbers of kills, with 23 and 26 respectively. Bosschaert also had a career-high 62 attacks, while Sherry Cowling chalked up 74 assists. Based on their strong showing in the tournament. Cowling, Ramos, and Bianca Stevens were named to the All-Tournament team. Reynaud received ACC Coach of the Year honors. 114 Sports sherry Cowling returns to Florida and experi- ence a duccet dful senior year a a Seminole Realizing that the student portion ot the " student-athlete " was just as important as the latter portion, Sherry Cowling, a talented setter for the volleyball team, left Syracuse University. " Overall the program changed and lost sight of what a student-athlete was, " Cowling said. " You need a good balance because there are not too many careers in volleyball if you sacrifice your education. " Feeling strongly on this matter, the Miami native returned home to Florida. She then enrolled in the Florida International University and assisted in coaching the school ' s volleyball team. It w as there that Cowling recaptured her love of volleyball. " I didn ' t touch a volleyball for six months f 1 1 after I left Syracuse, I I ' 1 never thought I ' d want to f bM play again, " Cowling said. " Through working with the FIU team, I found the joy that I had lost. " When Cowling moved to Tallahassee and transferred to the University, she did so with no intentions ol playing volleyball. She had grown up a Seminole fan and iked the idea of being closer to home and warm weather. Her career at the University began as a walk-on, which was a difficult transition for Cowling. At Syracuse she had been named the Most Valuable Player as a freshman and by her junior year she A ' as the team captain, the leader in assists, a Regional All-Amencan and a selection for the Olympic Festival silver medal volleyball squad. " I decided to w ork as hard as I could, I wanted to do it, " Cowling said about joining the Lady Seminole squad, which was what Head Coach Cecile Reynaud felt set her apart. " Anything we are doing. Sherry pushes herself absolutely as hard as she can push, " Reynaud said. " At first we were skeptical, because she was coming in as a senior. But she fit right in to the team and made a good impact, both attitude-wise and on the court, " teammate Adria Ciraco said. In one short season. Cowling proved to be an asset to the women ' s volleyball team. She was named to the second team All-South Region and finished second on the University ' s single season assist charts. Cowling was also named to the All-Tournament teams at the Gator Invitational, South Florida Invitational, and Hofstra Invitational. In the ACC Tournament, Cowling ' s performance placed her on the All- Tournament team, and she was also named to the All-ACC team for the season. Her academic emphasis and achievements did not go unnoticed either. GTE Corporation named her to the All- America Volleyball third team for the entire nation.

In January the cheerleaders traveled to compete in the National Collegiate Cheerleading Championship in Dallas, Texas, while the Golden Girls performed in a December halftime show in Japan. For the 18-member cheerleading squad, it was the first time in three years they were able to make the trip to the National Championship. Their efforts paid off as they placed fourth in the nation, their highest finish ever. This was quite an accomplishment considering the teams that placed above them had all placed first in past years. The squad remained on the go, performing at the Orange Bowl in Miami, the basketball game against the University of Florida in Tallahassee and the NCCC competition in Dallas, all in one week. Senior member Nicole Batchelor attributed their success to their determination. " We knew we were good and we didn ' t want any odds to keep us from being the best, " she said. While the cheerleaders prepared for nationals, the Golden Girls were preparing for their own show. Invited to perform based on a videotaped performance, the Golden Girls packed it up and headed to Japan to perform in the Coca-Cola Classic football game. Although not a competition, the Golden Girls performance meant just as much as they were chosen out of various dance teams nationally. Dancer Marcy Kislia said her favorite part of the trip was how respected they were because of their dancing ability. " They thought we were stars, " she said. The Golden Girls have existed for over ten years. They have grown to 14 girls that perform at basketball games, competitions, rush parties, philanthropy projects and community activities. The University ' s cheerleaders have also been around for many years doing their best to rouse the spirit of Seminoles everywhere. A coed team, the squad practiced long hours to strut their stuff at all football and men ' s basketball games, as well as charity benefits and alumni gatherings. Batchelor said her favorite part of her 3 year experience as a varsity cheerleader was the pride. " It is such a high to be part of our athletic program, " she said, -con t- UI ' ■■m .

" It IS like having a 35- hour a veek job, including practice, game time, travel, alumni and charitable appearances, " Batchelor said. Along with the varsity squad, there existed a 14- member junior varsity squad. This team pertormed as the " Lady Seminole Squad " at women ' s volleyball and basketball games. Members w ere able to move up or down betw een the junior varsity and varsity squads depending on various factors affecting performances and responsibilities. Each of the three groups held try outs annually. Cheerleaders hosted theirs tor the varsity in the Spring and the junior varsity in the Fall. Golden Girls try outs consisted of a two day clinic in May. The first day, participants were taught a dance routine and the fight song. The actual try out consisted of those two activities in addition to kicks, turns and splits. The three groups did, on occasion, combine their efforts. The biggest example of this was a combination routine performed at the Homecoming Pow Wow. They attended the same summer camp and practice times were similar. Kislia believed the two groups got along well and complemented each other in performance, with both groups looking forward to more throughout the year. Andy McNeil coached the two cheerleading squads, while also advising the Golden Girls and Bat Girls. " They work together when needed but each have separate jobs, " he said.

Spirit Leaders 119 Joanna Sparkman The bad- ket- ball teairu faced tough com- peti- tion , espe- cially in the ACC ACC season number two. What could Florida State expect from its basketball teams? The Lady Seminoles hoped to improve on the 8-8 conlerence record from last season. The men ' s team had high hopes lor a conference championship after finishing second in the regular season and third in the post-season tournament. As the Seminoles prepared for the competition, both teams looked to seniors lor leadership. Women ' s coach Marynell Meadors relied on the experience of Chantelle Dishman, Tia Paschal and Danielle Ryan and they did not disappoint her. Unfortunately, Dishman injured her knee twice and was out for most of the season, so she did not get to play up to her potential. But both Paschal and Ryan proved to be excellent leaders. Paschal earned MVP honors at the Dial Soap Classic Tournament and made the all-tournament team at the Oakland Tribune Classic. She broke numerous school records and at the end ol the season was named to the All-ACC first team. Ryan made the all- tournament teams at the both the Dial Soap and Oakland Tribune Classics. She excelled in the classroom as well, being named ACC Scholar- Athlete of the Week and a GTE Academic All- American. Both seniors had games in which they scored over 30 points. Paschal with three and Ryan with one. The Lady Seminoles competed in two tournaments during the season and did w ell. They won the Dial Classic at home and were runners- up in the Oakland Tribune Classic in California. As a team, they broke the record for the most three- pointers in a season. Coach Kennedy also looked to three seniors who showed themselves to be some of the geatest basketball pi ay e r s in school history, Sam Cassell, Rodney Dobard, and Doug Edwards. Kennedy also had a full arsenal of athletes in addition to the big three, including last season ' s Rookie ol the Year Bob Sura, team leader Charlie Ward, experienced seniors Lorenzo Hands and Byron Wells and talented new Ireshmen Derrick Carroll, Maurice Robinson, Scott Shepherd. Sam Cassell, Doug Edwards, and Bob Sura earned spots on the All- ACC second team. All three made their marks in scoring. Exlwards scored in double figures 84 out of 91 games during his career, Cassell 62 out of 66, and Sura 54 out of 65 games. This season Dobard broke the record of the most games played as a Seminole with 122. The men ' s team was plagued with injuries throughout the season, but still managed to capture second place in the ACC and go all the way to the final eight in the NCAA.

" -Alluon Peercy fOt kethoM team attojck Top 25 I ' roin mid-IJcLcmlx I to mid- January, it was not a good idea to be a Top 25 team and to pla the Lady Seminoles Chances were, you got beat. The women hoopsters convincingK ' deteated 5 of 6 ranked opponents during that month. It all started with a road win over 16th- ranked University of Miami. In the Oakland Tribune Classic just bclore Christmas, the defeated Tennessee Tech, the 23 team. Ironically, head coach Marynell Meadors had recently been inducted into the Tennessee Tech Hall of Fame for starting and coaching their basketball program for 16 years. The team ' s next three wins were not only over ranked teams, but ACC opponents as well. They defeated UNC ( 15) and Georgia Tech ( 23) both on the road. But the win Meadors called " the biggest in school history " came against the Maryland Terrapins, ranked 3 in the nation, by a score of 68-61. Even with the big wins, the Lady ' Noles failed to rank in the Top 25 themselves. Losses to unranked teams and injuries contributed to this fact. But the women ' s basketball team still made their name known around the country. 122 Sports Tia PcuchaL learned at a young age how to play boA ketball With the boyd " ll Tia Paschal was known and respected on any court on campus. Whether one was at Tully Gym or the Leach Center, she was amazing to watch. Paschal, the 6-foot- 1 senior from Thomson, Georgia, was the most versatile player in the history of women ' s basketball at FSU. She could play on the inside or outside. She had speed, endurance and strength to defend against the toughest opponent. Paschal broke two school records, one for the most steals in a season and another for the most points in a game against 15th- ranked North Carolina. Paschal scored 38 points to ead the team in 85-66 upset. " I had no idea the school record was " hi points in a game. It was a big surprise when the team told me I had broken the record, " Paschal said. " It was my night. Every thing I put up went in and 38 went in. " North Carolina ' s Hatchell remembered Paschal ' s most memorable game against them. " She was unreal that day, " Hatchell said. (Paschal also had 1 1 rebounds, lour steals and shut dow n one of UNC ' s leading scorers. " She was inside, she was outside, she posted up, she rebounded, she brought the ball down the floor, she blocked shots, she made steals-she was all world that day and we couldn ' t do anything to stop her. " Playing basketball was not always easy for Paschal. There was a time when she would go to the park with her sister to play with the guys and neither she nor her sister were picked to be on the teams. " I was small, skinny and could not get the ball. So the boys did not want me to play, " Paschal remembers. ' I used to practice with a bicycle rim and a piece of wood hung up on a pole. As I got older and the guys saw I could play, they started picking me to be on their team. " Paschal did not stop playing ball with the guys when she got to college. Her attitude was that playing with the guys taught speed, strength and helped rid fear of the big girls becuase she would keep body contact with the boys. " I played at Leach with guys during the off season, they make you more aggressive, ' Paschal said. ' Their attitude is if you can ' t play, stay off the court. ' Paschal wants to play professional women ' s basketball in Europe. Then she wants to play in the 1996 OKonpics. If her knees last that long she will have reached her ultimate goal in basketball. Paschal majored in criminology. After basketball, she hoped to have a job as an undercover cop working in narcotics to give the youth of America a better chance by helping to rid the streets of drugs.

Basketball 123 The men ' c basketball team took a licking but kept on ticking Everything pointed toward a spectacular season tor the men ' s basketball team. With all the starters returning from a Sweet 16 team, combined with a talented freshman class, the Seminole fans dared to expect a Final Four appearance. Then, the season began... It started in the opening minutes of the very first game, versus Siena in the preseason NIT tournament. Guard Chuck Graham went down with a knee injury. He sustained ligament damage and underwent surgery, ending his season. Graham took a medical redshirt to save his final season for 1993-94. One dow n, who was next? Andre Reid broke his hand ■when it was slammed in a car door, ending his season as well. Doug Fxiw ards broke his finger in the warmups before a game against Maryland- Baltimore County on Dec. 28, but was only out for two games. All these injuries occurred before the team started ACC competition in January. In addition to the nagging absences of key players in the first part ol the season, the team was also without Charlie Ward, -who was quarterbacking the football team. They started strong in the ACC after he joined the team. Then against Georgia Tech, Ward went down with a dislocated shoulder, the same shoulder he injured in the 1992 NCAA Tournament. How many more to go? Freshman Jonathan Kerner, a reserve center, missed nine games because of mononucleosis. Another freshman, guard Derrick Not Slowing Down Even while recovering from a broken finger, Doug E vards slam clunks the ball against N.C. State, as the Seminoles win 70- 54. Edwards broke his finger two weeks before this game, one of the many injuries that the Seminoles experienced this sea- son. Photo by Steve Stiber. Carroll, who gained the starting position when Ward -went down, broke his left foot in early February and missed five games. Ironically, this was season 13 for head coach Pat Kennedy. " I don ' t know what I did this summer, but it must have been horrible. I never had injuries like this in my 13 years of coaching. It ' s catching up with me in one year, " Kennedy said. It was not just injuries, how ever. Bob Sura and Doug Eklwards were both suspended for one game lor missing classes. They missed an ACC matchup versus N.C. State in Raleigh. However, the situation finally started to improve. Kerner returned for the N.C. State game, and contributed to a 72-71 victory. Ward returned where he left off - against Georgia Tech-htted with a special brace lor his shoulder. Carroll also returned for that game, which the Seminoles won and clinched second place in the ACC. By March Madness, Kennedy had all his players back injury- free. The casualties did have a good side. It gave younger players, such as Scott Shepherd and Alaunce Robinson early experience. And ultimately, that experience would benefit in future seasons. 124 Sports FSU Duk£ It seemed an unlikely H possibility- FSU, who m had fallen out of the AP 1 op 25, hosting Duke, ranked 6 and the two- time defending national champions. However, the 13,333 fans that packed the Civic Center saw one ot the most exciting games of the season. The lead changed hands 15 times during the game and twice FSU battled back from double-digit deficits to tie the score. In the closing seconds of regulation, with the score tied at 80, Charlie Ward knocked the ball loose from Duke ' s Grant Hill to prevent any more scoring and to advance to overtime. The lead continued to go back and forth in OT, but with 7 seconds left, and the score 88-86 in Duke ' s favor, Byron Wells, a reserve forward, became FSU ' s hero. His three-point shot bounced off the rim and then sank in for the Seminole win, called the " greatest win " by FSU coach Pat Kennedy. " We worked seven years for this. I think for Florida State University basketball, with the Final Four of ' 72, it was our greatest moment, " Kennedy said. Although Wells was the overtime hero, it was a team effort that produced the win. Doug Fxiwards led the team with 2 1 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out late in the second half. Bob Sura and Rodney Dobard both had 16 points, while Sam Cassell scored 15 and held Thomas Hill to only 5. Charlie Ward scored 1 1, while Wells finished with 10. " We were too exhausted to try to go to a second OT and I thought our best shot was to win it with three. I thought it w as the best effort of any team I ' ve ever had. It was truly a special effort. " -P z Kennedy, vj. Duke Basketball 125 " Our goal defi- nitely was to get to the national championship. I vould say we had a good season, but not a great one simply because we thought we were capable of the Final Four. " - Scott Shepherd Mmkemtlmpmt Impact players are usually those with the most experience and that proved to be the case for the men ' s basketball team. Three seniors provided leadership and skill throughout the season. Collectively, the seniors accounted for 56 of the team ' s 86.2 points a game and 60 percent of the rebounds. Cassell, from Baltimore, Maryland, started all 35 games for the Seminoles. He spent many games in the point guard position when Charlie Ward was out. His most stunning statistic occurred during the NCAA Tournament, when he shot 9 of 9 from three-point range in the first two games, setting a tournament record. Dobard broke records himself this season. During his FSU career he played 122 games, lour more than the previous record- holder. When Dobard scored 12 or more points, the team posted a 37-4 mark, proving that he was one of the most dependable players on the team. Edwards showed his stuff both in scoring and rebounding, having double figures for both in several games this season. He was the first player in school history to score at least 1,500 points, 700 rebounds and 200 assists. These players enjoyed remarkable careers and it would be tough to replace them in the next season. 1 26 Sports i LLllL D Im. J- Zl6e Seminole bounce back from the AC C Tournament to a strong dhowing in the NCAA After battling through another season the the Atlantic Coast Conference, the men ' s basketball team prepared for the postseason ACC and NCAA Tournaments. They finished the regular season with a 24-9 record, 12-5 in the conference, capturing the second place spot. They swept Wake Forest, Maryland, N.C. State, Clemson and Georgia Tech and split games with Duke and Virginia. The team traveled to Charlotte, NC, for the four-day ACC Tournament in March. As the 2 seed they faced seventh-seeded Clemson in the first game. In what was a surprise to just about everyone, Clemson sent the Seminoles back to Tallahassee with a 87-75 loss. This was despite a spectacular performance by the senior Doug Exlwards, who had team highs in scoring, rebounding and assisting. Even with that much- too-short trip to Charlotte, the Seminoles became the 3 seed in the Southeast Region of the NCAA Tournament. This meant they would play the first two rounds in Orlando, virtually in their own backyard. The first game was against Evansville. Was another big upset at hand? Not this time. The Seminoles regained the confidence they seemed to have lost and easily defeated the the Aces 82-70. In the second round they faced Tulane and it was the same story, only to a greater degree, as they won 94-63. Sam Cassell ' s shooting came alive in these two games as he scored 18 points versus Evansville and 3 1 against Tulane. He also went 9 of 9 in three-point shooting, an NCAA record. Wi th these wins, the team had advanced to the Sweet 16, repeating last season ' s performance. In the next game they met Western Kentucky, a team that had upset the 2 seed, Seton ffall. Called a " Cinderella team, " WKU took the team to overtime before the Seminoles pulled off the win, 81-78. Turnovers and low free- throw shooting played a big part in the Seminoles struggle, but in key situations, several members of the team stepped up and made the big plays. The region final pitted Florida State against Kentucky, the 1 seed. The Wildcats ended the Seminoles NCAA trip with a 106-81 victory. The Tribe kept it close in the first half, gaining the lead at one point in the first half. Doug Eldwards, despite fouling out late in both games, played his final two games as a Seminole in style as he provided 19 points against Western Kentucky and 15 against Kentucky. Although they experienced ups and downs in post-season tournament play, the Seminoles had nothing to be ashamed of. Finishing second place in the regular- season ACC and advancing to the " Elite 8 " of the NCAA Tournament proved the Seminoles were one of the premier college basketball teams in America.

Both placed fourth in the highly com- petitive ACC improving on their fifth place finish in 1992. Head Coach Terry iMaul, in his 18th season at the helm of the swimming teams, has guided 32 All- Americans and led the program to an overall record of 174-94-2. " This was the best per- formance I ' ve had in all my years of coaching, " Maul said. Four Seminoles swam to first place finishes. Freshmen Helen Jepson and Robert Braknis and sophmores Dora Bralic and Ignacio Merino cap- tured individual ACC titles. Being underclass- men, these individuals would provide a strong nucleus for the upcoming seasons. During the regular sea- son the men posted a 8-4 record and the women closed the season strong after a shaky start with 6 wins, 5 losses. The swim- mers also set nine new school records. Senior Kiki Steinberg broke a pair of records at the Semi- nole Winter Invitational; the 100 backstroke record and her own record in the 200 back. At the ACC Championships Ignacio Merino broke three school records in the 100 and 200 butterfly and 200 breast- stroke. Robert Braknis shattered two marks in the 100 and 200 backstroke, and Helen Jepson set the 200 fly record. The men ' s relay team of Braknis, Me- rino, Greg Miller, and Jose ' Gutierrez broke the 400 medley relay with a time of 3: 19.44. The performances of Braknis, Merino, and Jepson qualified them for the NCAA Championship meet held in March in Minneapolis. This meet brought together the top collegiate swimmers in the country. " It was a real honor to swim in such a prestigious meet, " Jepson said. Florida State would host the ACC Championships next season. " It will bring much excitement and en- thusiasm to the swimming program next year hosting the conference meet here in Tallahassee, " Nada Cenanovik from Ontario, Canada said. " We have a chance to further advance in the conference and make a strong showing in our home pool, " Julie Peluso said. The men ' s team gradu- ated three seniors; Cory Hyrnyk, diver Rob Caicedo, and team co-cap- tain John Bates. The women ' s team lost a few more, with Missy Connolly, Suzie Gunn, Meghan Henning, Valerie Moore, diver Shelly King, and team co-captain Kiki Steinberg all departing. " We have met at a cross- roads, " Coach Maul said. With the addition of new signees and the continued training and growth of the underclassmen, the Semi- noles could be a fierce competitor for the ACC title in the future.

Few student athletes achieve the success she had in just her hrstyear ot collegiate competition. Hailing trom the United Kingdom, Jepson barely missed competing in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics tor her home countr ' . She made up tor it in the United States, however. During a swim meet against Clemson during the season, Jepson placed first in two events, the 1000 treestyle and the 200 butterfly as she helped lead the Lady Seminoles to victory, 155-87. At the ACC Championships, she also won the 200 butterfly, setting a new school record in the process. Because of her success, Jepson was named to the All-ACC team. Helen was the only representative lor the Lady Seminole squad at college aquatics most prestigious event, the NCAA Championships. She competed in the 100 and 200 butterfly. Although she did not score in the top 16 in those events at the championships, " it was a real honor to swim in such a prestigious meet, " Jepson said.

Actually these were the countries from which the international members of the swimming and diving teams originated. The women ' s team had lour foreign athletes: Dora Bralic ' , Nada Cenanovic ' , Helen Jepson and Claudia Wilson. On the men ' s team John Bates, Thomas Bendixen, Robert Braknis, Rolando Galindo, Pablo Garcia, Jose Gutierrez, Ignacio Merino, Greg Miller and Alfonso Reims migrated from foreign lands. Many of these athletes came to the United States to get their college education and to train in exceptional facilities. The state of Florida, with its warm climate, was also the number one choice for swimmers, as indicated by the number of international swimmers and divers at the state universities that offer a swimming program. Back in their home countries, many of the swimmers achieved recognition before they came to college. Dora Bralic ' held the Yugoslavian record in the 100 breaststroke and 400 freestyle relay. Claudia Wilson competed in the South American Championships for Brazil and had a second and third place finish. She also took first place in the 400 IM at the Brazil Open. John Bates was a regional finalist in Australia. Thomas Bendixen was the Danish junior record holder in the 4 X 100 medley and freestyle relays. The United States ' neighbors both north and south placed members on the Seminole squad. For Canada, Robert Braknis won the 50 free at the Canadian Nationals and Greg Miller was a finalist in the 200 fly and 100 backstroke at the Canadian World Finals. Miller also competed on the Provincial Youth Team for the Western Canada Games. For Mexico, Rolando Galindo placed second in the 200 breaststroke at the Mexican Nationals and third at the Central American Games. Ignacio Merino was a national qualifier for the 100 and 200 butterfly in Ecuador. Why did such great numbers of international athletes come to the United States? ' There are more opportunities here for them to compete. In European countries they don ' t compete on the collegiate level. There are also more educational opportunities for them in the U.S. Coaches at Florida State did not travel abroad to actively recruit these athletes, although some other schools may have done this, " assistant swim coach Don Gibb said. " International students definitely make an impact. They are usually in the top group of swimmers, " Coach Gibb said. Get Set.. .Go!

There he developed a strong interest in swimming and began his hfelong relationship with the sport. In Ecuador he qualified for the national team in the 100 and 200 butterfly. After graduating from high school , he came to the United States to train. Before attending the University he spent a year in Amencus, Georgia taking classes and training four hours a day. Ignacio had scholarship offers from other schools throughout the country including the University of Arizona and Louisiana State but chose FSU because ol the excellent sport facilities, warm climate, friendly atmosphere and opportunity to improve his times. Ignacio had little trouble making the transition from club swimming to swimming in the competitive Atlantic Coast Conference. During his Ireshman year he missed the NCAA quahlying time in the 200 breaststroke by only hall a second. As a sophomore, Merino was the top returning scorer tor the season. He also broke three school records in the 200 butterfly (1:47:29), 100 butterfly (48.64 sec), and 200 breaststroke. Merino earned a spot on the All-ACC team at the end of the season, one ol six Seminoles who A ' ere selected. He was also one ol only two swimmers on the men ' s team to compete in the prestigious NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships held in Indianapolis in the spring.

With the help oi his leadership, he also wanted to " bring the whole Florida State swimming team to a new level of competitiveness. I ■would like to have the team place higher in the conference meet and beat our archrivals North Carolina and North Carolina State. " " We have everything here at this school to take us to that new level, " Merino said, referring to the newly purchased equipment, weightroom, Leach Center and the quality of the swimmers already here in the program. Alter swimming Ignacio planned to graduate with a bachelor ' s degree in Economics and possibly go on to graduate school, continuing at FSU. Another ambition of Merino ' s was to stay in Tallahassee and help coach the team after graduation. He felt that sw imming had a bright future on the national level and he hoped to be a part of it.

Gibb, a 1985 graduate from the University ot Florida, was the top assistant tor the Gator swimming team for five seasons before coming to Seminole territory. While competing in college, Gibb was the SEC champion in the 100-yard freestyle in 1982 and placed seventh in the same event at the 1983 NCAA championships. He was also a member ot the 400-yard relay team that placed first in the NCAA ' s and cliched the national title for Florida in 1983. At Florida State, Gibb hopes to bring some ot that same enthusiasm and excitement that he experienced as a swimmer and assistant coach at UF. Junior Dan Wegner, a freestyle swimmer, said, " Coach Gibb has been very helpful to the entire team, but his work with the sprinters has especially helped. " " The training is very hard. For many members of the team it was their first time in this type of train- ing. Our main goal is to get the best times. Plac- ing isn ' t as impor- tant as improving our times.

The team compiled a 39- 15 record during the regular season. However, it vas individual statistics and a very young team that made this season special and gave head coach Mike Martin nothing but optimism for upcoming seasons. The team started the season with a seven game win streak before facing the first real test against Cal-State Fullerton. The Titans ended the Seminoles ' College World Series quest the season before. The team defeated Cal- State in the first game but dropped the next two. Florida ' s state schools all had successful baseball programs, so March started with a bang when the Seminoles sw ept a four game series over the Florida Gators. In April, the team also swept Miami at home and beat the Hurricanes once down in Miami. In the tough Atlantic Coast Conference, the Seminoles compiled a 14-9 record. NoACCteam swept Florida State during the season. The team experienced a roller coaster ride through the weekly polls. They started ranked as high as 10 in the Collegiate Baseball poll, but Baseball America ignored them. However, that publication did award them their highest ranking of the season, 2, during April when the team had a 31-7 record. They ended the regular season ranked as high as 9. Several individuals stood out during the season. Sophomore pitcher Paul Wilson captured ACC Pitcher of the Week honors three times, and had the conference ' s lowest ERA, 1.48, with a 10-3 record. Freshman Jonathan Johnson boasted a 7-1 record with a 1.69 ERA, second in the ACC. Catcher Mike Martin, Jr. was named ACC Player of the Week in March by hitting .375 during a four game streak, with a home run and five RBI ' s. At the end of the season he threw out seven of nine base stealers. Freshman first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz was one of the top hitters for the team and league. Freshman Mickey Lopez, senior Ty Mueller, and junior Mike Schmitz also had high batting averages. Coach Mike Martin celebrated his 1,000th game and his 750th win during the season. Martin accumulated a 754-254-3 record. The Seminoles headed into the post-season ACC Tournament in Greenville, South Carolina seeded number three.

The major league drah and graduation took key talent from the Seminole baseball team. Pitching was a big concern, as the Seminoles lost their top three pitchers. This posed difficulties to a team who based their philosophy on pitching and defense. " I don ' t think we ' ve had ayear where A ' e ' ve lost our entire starting rotation and as many position players as w e ' ve lost. I don ' t remember having to start over like this, " head coach Mike Martin said. The team recruited 18 new players, including 12 treshmen. This troubled JT " 1 some because the team was " ' young and inexperienced in pi ay ing together. Baseball America did not even rank the team in the preseason top 25. But not flnk: everyone felt that being such ayoung group would hamper the University ' s t ability to held a winning team. Collegiate Baseball Magazine rated the 1992 recruiting class as America ' s best and ACC coaches picked the Tribe to vin the league. " This is the most impressive class I can remember. Recruiting coordinator Jamey Shouppe did an outstanding job, " Martin said. Tw elve of the 18 had been drafted during their career. Second basemen Chad Sheffer was drafted in the fourth round. " I didn ' t think I was ready to jump into pro baseball. I m definitely glad I came here, " Shefier said. " The coaches really push me. I ' ve learned so much in every single game and practice. " Martin described Doug Mientkiewicz as the " most impressive player in preseason v orkouts. " In fact, he started on opening day over senior Kevin McCray. Mientkiewicz was a twelfth round selection by the Toronto Blue Jays and almost signed with them. " I A ' ould ' ve gone except for the fact that I would have been going from Westminster where we were in the spotlight to the minor leagues where you ' re just another number, " Mientkiewicz said. " I wanted three or four more years in the spotlight. You don ' t get that in the minors. You ' re just another kid. " Pitcher Jonathan Johnson was another freshman starter. Like many of his teammates, he was drafted but opted to play for FSU. " I knew we A ' ere losing a lot of talent but I knew there were a lot of us freshman signing and I was excited about coming, " Johnson said. The newcomers were excited to join a team that has gone to the World Series five times in the last seven years. " We have so much talent and if we don ' t win the College World Series this year, it ' ll be our sophomore and junior year, " Johnson said. " I want another ring and I want to make Omaha every year I ' m here, " Mientkiewicz said. " I want it all, " Sheffer said.

Baseball 137 Baseball competition got toiigh cu the Seminole advanced in the AC C and NCAA An active postseason had become a trademark for the Seminole baseball team, usually including a trip to the College World Series. But stiff competition and tough games kept the young team from returning to the CWS in Omaha, Nebraska. The team started the ACC Tournament as the 3 seed and played their first game against Clemson. It seemed as if Clemson held a curse over the Seminoles as they lost to the Tigers for the eighth time in nine meetings. But the Seminoles finally got the ball rolling in the double elimination tournament with an 11-2 win over Virginia. During that game Coach Mike Martin learned that Florida State was awarded a host site for the NCAA tournament, hosting the six-team East Regional. " I must admit, that news was a tremendous lift for me mentally, " Martin said. The Seminoles continued their winningwayswithavictory over Georgia Tech and finally over Clemson. The Noles played N.C. State in the semifmal, but the ACC Tobacco Road ended there as the Wolfpack won and advanced to the championship game against Clemson. Clemson took the ACC title. Florida State returned home for the regional tournament, the final step to the CWS. The top seed. Long Beach State, ranked among the nation ' s elite, and the Noles started off with state rival, the University of South Florida. The team rallied in the seventh inning with Fallen Soldier clemson coaches and officials rush to the side of an injured player.

Long Beach State beat the team 4-1. After several rain delays, Florida State finally started the next battle, an elimination game with Notre Dame at 10:05 p.m. Three hours later, the Seminoles came up short and were eliminated with a 4-3 loss. " I ' ve been here for five years, and it ' s hard to believe it ' s over, " Mueller, one of the only two senior starters, said as the team played the final game of the season at Dick Howser Stadium. However, the future looked bright with only five players finishing their college careers. The majority of the team would be back in 1994 to try advancing even further in post season play. " This team is so young that only good things are in store for these guys, " Mueller said. 138 Sports lag iearn IS e m I n o I e s jentki«wic« and ' iSkeHer chase a Ckrasoit iwicn- iier between the bases. pbeffer tinged the runner W- fere he advanced to secottd. ht t0 bif Robert Parker.

Atter sweeping Florida earlier in the season, the Seminoles shut down the Miami Hurricanes in a three-game weekend series pLued at Dick H o w .s e I Stadium. Paul Wilson pitched (1 the hrst game, a 7-0 shutout. The score went 1-0 all the a until the eighth inning, when designated hittei Mike Schmitz opened a six run rally with a solo homer. Wilson pitchetl a complete hve-hillei, backed up by detensi t plays from the Seminole infield. His record improved to 8-2. Miami ' s frustrations continued in game two. After scoring a run in the fourth inning, the Hurricanes fell apart, starting with the head coach ' s ejection over a controversial call. Plight was the magic number, as freshman pitcher Jonathan Johnson struck out eight in as many innings, and the Seminole batters drove in eight runs. The sweep became complete Sunday afternoon as the Seminoles defeated the ' Canes 6-2. Mickey Lopez ' s single brought in two runs to start a four run rally in the fourth. John Wasdin pitched 7 2 3 innings, striking out nine and giving up two runs. John Nadeau came in for the save. Coach Martin described the series as " a monumental feat. You just don ' t sweep Miami. " Florida State, ranked 6 before the series, jumped four notches to the 2 spot after the " Beating Miami and UF four times each were hi gh- lights of our sea- son. But our goal is to go back to the World Series and try to win it all. That ' s our goal every year. " - Charlie Cruz Baseball 139 The doftball teain dhutout the competition and rewrote the record book By Joanna Sparkman It did not matter what aspect of the game one looked at when he studied the Florida State softbail team, because the Lady Seminoles had it all. Batting averages, home runs, stolen bases, strikeouts, shutouts, the list went on and on. Coach Gral ' s team boasted dominating players that at each position played their game well. And when they got together as a team, well, they usually could not be stopped. Much to their opponent ' s dismay, all the factors resulted in havoc for the other teams. The Seminoles compiled a 49-6 record before heading to the NCAA Regionals. The Regionals was the first step on the team s quest lor another trip to the College World Series. They outscored their opponents 304-38 with 36 shutouts. Five of the team ' s six losses occurred during tournaments, but they also added three tourney titles under the belt. They won their own Lady Seminole Invitational tournament, the UNC Invitational, and the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships. They also won the consolation bracket of the Pony Invitational in Fullerton, California, a tournament featuring most of the nation ' s top 10 teams. Because of their domination on all sides of the diamond, the Lady Seminoles were definitely not a one-person team. The point was proved further by the variety of names that showed up on the all-tournament teams. Catcher Leslie Adams w as MVP of the Seminole Invitational with Leslie Barton, Maria Looper, and Susan Buttery joining her as honorees. Toni Gutierrez, a pitcher, was MVP of the UNC Invitational, and Leslie Barton, Lisa Davidson, and Shamalene Wilson made the all-tournament team. Several members of the team showed up in the Florida State record books as well. Susan Buttery, the top hitter with a .393 batting average, was first on the list in At Bats, Runs, and Hits categories. Senior outfielder Leslie Barton was number one in stolen bases with 63 and RBI ' s with 128. Senior Gutierrez appeared in the top four of each pitching category and was in striking distance of the top spot in shutouts and earned run average. Coach Graf, a Florida State graduate, finished her fifteenth season as head coach for the team, compiling a 702-161-4 record (an .814 winning percentage). For the second year in a row, Graf received the ACC Coach of the Year honor.

Another ring! " -Laurie Shepherd The Lady Seminol Softball team won their second consecutive ACC title hy rebounding to defeat Virginia twice after losing to them earlier. Playing four straight games, the ' Noles opened with the 1-0 loss, the first time they had been held scoreless in 44 games. The next opponent was Georgia Tech whom FSU beat earlier in the double- elimination tournament. They eliminated the Lady Yellow Jackets, 12-0. The Seminoles once again faced Virginia, and needed to win tw o over them to claim the ACC title. The first game went 0-0 for eleven innings. Then pinch hitter Heather Feltmann hit a two-run homer which won the game. In the championship game the team gathered many hits, with pitcher Toni Gutierrez slamming a two-run homer to seal the victory, 4-2. The win was a landmark in that it was head coach JoAnne Graf ' s 700th win at Florida State. Second baseman Lisa Davidson was named tournament MVP, with teammates Susan Buttery, Leslie Barton, Heather Conway, Maria Looper and Gutierrez joining her on the All-Tournament team. Graf was named ACC Coach of the Year and Shamalene Wilson was named ACC Freshman of the Year. After winning the ACC, the Lady ' Noles set their sights on the NCAA Regionals and the College World Series. 142 Sports Immn Talented pitching dtaff divider up the duties and hurU the Lady Noled to victory fcrd, Lisa Da ' s stierrez ajod ' »y gather ( beibre the a« Most collegiate softball coaches would Q extremely grateful to have one pitcher with an almost perfect record and an learned Run Average in the nation ' s elite.

Add to that duo another pitcher who holds the NCAA record lor the nation ' s longest winning streak of 50 games. Sounds too good to be true? Well, Lady Seminole softball coach JoAnne Graf had a pitching staff that other coaches dreamed about vith Maria Looper, Toni Gutierrez, and Rebecca Aase. " I w ouldn ' t trade these three pitche rs for any three in the country, " Coach Graf said. When any of " these three " were on the mound, the softball team racked up a 49-6 record before the NCAA Regionals. But success did not come easy. In the 1992 season, Gutierrez and Aase split the playing time. Gutierrez threw 285 1 3 innings, while Aase pitched for 204 2 3 innings. They racked up a remarkable 63-9 record, but it was a heavy load for just two of them, so Coach Graf searched for another talented Re for the first base, ' for the bail as ■ tkijpates tagging th« ruiuser »way was ! minolesnamc All-Touraament ►«» » by LUa Ct tlar9. pitcher to Fill the starting rotation. Maria Looper, a junior college transfer from Crowder College in Missouri, fit the bill. The Oklahoma City native was MVP of the Junior College Nationals and an All-American in that same division. The trio lived up to the expectations, and then some. Prior to the NCAA Regionals, Gutierrez, the lone senior of the group, had an .39 ERA (seventh in the nation), a 15-4 record, and eleven shutouts. Looper posted a 18-1 record, the nation ' s 3 ERA of .29, and thirteen shutouts. Aase, a junior, broke the NCAA record in 1992 which was previously 36 wins without a loss. She extended the streak to 50 before losing a game in April. She compiled a 16-1 record, .52 ERA (ranked 10 nationally) and pitched twelve shutouts. The three of them together set another NCAA record: 124 2 3 scoreless innings in a row. This streak started Feb. 20 and was snapped on March 19. During this time they shut out opponents in 1 7 games. How did the " terrific trio " feel about splitting the pitching duties three ways instead of two? " Maria ' s definitely been an asset to the team, " Aase said. " Last year, it was game after game after game. Now, there ' s more time to concentrate on other things. " Looper said, " The fact that there are three of us in the rotation gives us the opportunity to rest more, which allows us to be fresher for each game. " And it was no question that the coaches were definitely pleased with the results. " It ' s a luxury to have three pitchers that good, " pitching coach Connie Clark said. Strike!

On the men ' s side, the team was led by pole vaulter Jefl Bray, Jonathon Carter and Kevin Ansley on sprints, distance runner Trey Culbertson, Ryan Carson on shotput and discus, and Kelsey Nash and Kevin Crist on jumps. Head coach Terry Long looked forward to the talents of Philip Riley, a standout ju- co transfer, also a football signee. Unfortunately, Riley battled a injury for most of the season, but still qualified for the NCAA Championships. 1992 All-Americans Sheryl Covington, Trinette Johnson and Patrice Verdun led the women ' s team. All- American Karla Severs broke her foot and could not compete during most of the season. Other returners included Cathy Erickson and Kim Stephens on throws, distance runner Tracy Pepoon, and Indy Henry on jumps. The track and field season consisted of two schedules, an indoor schedule from January to March and outdoor meets from March to June. During indoors, the men ' s team placed third at the ACC Championships, and took four individuals to the NCAA ' s: Bray, Ansley, Carter, and Riley. At the ACC, Bray equaled his conference pole vault record of 18 feet, 6.5 inches, and Kevin Crist won the high jump. On the women ' s side, Trinette Johnson also set an ACC record by leaping 2 1 feet, 2 inches in the long jump. Covington qualified for the NCAA ' s by running season-best times in the 55 and 200 meter dashes. Outdoors, the Seminoles had strong show ings with many first place finishes. At the Florida Relays both men ' s 4x100 and 4x-400 teams took first, and sophomore Felicia Evans won the women ' s triple jump. Mark Anderson won the shotput at the FSU relays. At the Don Kirby Invitational in New Mexico, Tim Franklin won the 400m hurdles with a season-best time, Covington won two races, Peggy Armand won the high hurdles and Indy Henry took the high jump. Johnson captured first in long jump at the Run-Tex Invitational in Austin, Texas. As a team, the best performance came at the Spring Classic held at Mike Long Track. Both men and women finished first, the men with ten first place finishes and the w omen with eleven. Both teams finished fourth at the ACC outdoor championships and looked forward to sending several team members to the NCAA and TAC championships that took place in June.

Covington, a junior from Winter Haven, Florida, ran the 55, 100, 200, and 400 meter dashes. She took first place in the 55- meter event at the Northern Arizona Invitational and was the ACC Champion in that event. She sped to first in the 100-meter dash twice, and four times in her most successful event, the 200-meters. She also won the 400 at the Springtime Invitational held at Mike Long Track. Johnson ' s event was the long jump. The senior from Detroit, Michigan won the event several times during the indoor and outdoor seasons, including both ACC Championships. During the indoor competition, she set an ACC indoor long jump record with a distance of 21 feet, 2 inches. At the outdoor meet she bettered that mark by jumping 21 feet, 6 inches..

The men ' s track and field team was blessed with one of the nation ' s top pole aulters. Jeff Bray had the highest collegiate jump m the country two weeks Ijefore the NCAA Championships. While a Seminole, Bray broke several records mcluding the school record and ACC record of 18 feet, 6.5 inches. The two-time All- Amencan rubbed elbows with some of the best while gaining world class status as apole vaulter. During a competition in Europe, Bray roomed with the 1992 Olympic silver medalist from Russia. " Europe was a completely different experience, " said Bray, who planned to return to Europe later in the season. " It gave me experience against someone who has jumped 19 feet, so I ' ve learned not to worry about other people and to concentrate on myself. " Bray discovered the pole vault, one of the most difficult track and field events, in the sixth grade while residing in Texas. They took us outside and tried everybody at different events, " Bray recalled. He jumped seven leet in the sixth grade and joined a traveling team. In eighth grade his family moved to Oklahoma where he met one of the most prominent high school track feet, 7 inches in high school — his highest at the time. One positive aspect of the season was that he stayed healthy. Injuries plagued Bray in the past. A stress fracture caused Bray to just miss a spot on the 1992 Olympic team. " It was really depressing, ' Bray said. " I didn ' t want to talk to anybody. 1 just wanted to crawl into a hole. " Since then Bray bounced back. Tough ACC competition spurned him to do better. " In big meets I jump the extra few inches to win. " Bray handled the pressure well and excelled all season because of it. At a meet in Gainesville Bray beat out the favorite to win nationals in May. That was where he had the highest collegiate jump of the year. " It ' s a confidence booster to beat a favorite like that, " Bray said. " That was one of the highlights of the year. " Another highlight of Bray ' s college career was a 3.5 GPA. Bray, a physical education major, planned to pursue a master ' s degree in Sports Administration or Exercise Psychology, hoping to become a college coach. " Track has taught me responsibility and good work habits, " Bray said. His rigorous schedule and competition prepared him for life after pole vaulting. Bray saw himself clearing 19 feet in the near future, peaking at the perfect time for nationals and TAC ' s in Oregon where he hoped to make the World team. The 1996 Olympics were also in the future as well. Hard work and dedication made Jeff Bray one of the nation ' s best in collegiate track and field.

Track Field 147 By Joanna Sparkmad The teanu fin ' uhed high in the collegiate tour The men ' s golf team went from as low as 65th in the nation to breaking into the Top 20 before the regional tournament, with returning starters Bobby Cochran, Christian Ray nor and three newcomers Keith Rick, Jason Williams and Ryan Perna. The men participated in three tournaments during the tall, ending with a second place finish at the Florida Intercollegiate Championships. During the spring they placed in the top six in five of seven tournaments. One highlight of the spring occurred at the Southeastern Collegiate Invitational, where the men putted to first place. It was their first title in two years. The team placed second at the Florida Sou thern Impena Lakes Golf Classic, the site where senior Bobby Cochran won the individual title. Cochran was not the only achiever, however. Christian Raynor played solid with two top ten finishes. In the fall, Keith Rick was named to the All- State team and finished in the top five at the Florida Intercollegiate. Ryan Perna had a second place finish at the state Intercollegiate, third at the Gator Invitational and third at the Southeastern. Jason Williams struggled in the fall, but finished ninth at the Queen ' s Harbor Intercollegiate to capture his first Top Ten as a Seminole. The men ' s golf team struggled in the ACC Championships, placing eighth. But all five starters returned, giving them a experienced group to work Nvith in the future. The women ' s team started strong in the fall, placing in the top fiive in three tournaments. They placed fifth in the Lady Seminole Invitational, fifth in the Duke Fall Invitational and third in the Beacon Woods USF Invitational. In the Duke tournament, the team finished only one stroke shy of fourth place. The spring season consisted of five tournaments, the ACC and NCAA Tournaments. In the Lady Gator Invitational the team placed fifth. Ranked 24 in the nation, they headed to California for the San Jose State Jostens Invitational, where they placed eighth. The team brought home second place from the LSU Fairwood Invitational, and third from the Ryder Florida Golf Championships held in Miami. Junior Maria Castelucci had the low score for the team, finishing fourth. In the ACC Championships, the Lady Seminoles finished fourth. Kelly Pittman placed sixth individually. To receive an bid to the NCAA Tournament, a team had to finish the season as one of the top eight teams in their region. The Lady Seminoles competed in the NCAA East Regional Championships in mid- May and their performance there would indicate if they moved on to the national finals. . , After teeing ofl, the ball lands giate Golf Cham courtciiy of Sport. ff.

In the spring, he captured his first career victory at the Florida Southern ImperiaLakes Golf Classic in Lakeland. It was the first individual title won by a Seminole since 1989. Cochran shot a 68-69-70, three strokes below the second place finisher. The men ' s team captured second place in that tournament. But Cochran, a senior finance major, was not a one- tournament wonder. He played consistently and finished high all season long. In the fall, he placed tenth at the Dixie Intercollegiate and seventh at the Florida Intercollegiate. He placed third in the Augusta Cleveland Classic and broke a course record along the way. In the second round ol that tournament, he shot a 65, which was a second round low for the Classic. He finished ninth at the Southeastern Intercollegiate Invitational, where Florida State took home the team title.

Canadian-born golfer both in Canada and As a young child, senior Marie-Josee ' Rouleau could never have imagined herself as a Florida State golfer or the winner of the 1992 Canadian Amateur National Championship. The Canadian-born goUer scored 77) on each of her first three rounds, then shot four consecutive birdies to score a course record 68 and took the win. That win gave Rouleau the opportunity to represent British Columbia, Canada in the World Amateur Team Championship. The Canadian team placed tenth in that tournament. Rouleau said of the experience, " It was a great feeling to represent my country. " Rouleau also received the Score Award, given to the best amateur golfer in Canada. Until the age of thirteen when she began to become interested in golf, she only envisioned her future as a swimmer because that was her sport at that age. Her parents had a lot to do with Rouleau ' s sudden interest in golf, and living on a golf course provided an excellent opportunity to learn and develop the sport. The times changed from her days as a curiousyoung girl eager to try a new sport into days having an Amateur National Championship under her belt. Rouleau, a dhoivcajcd her ability in the United Stated marketing major, transferred to Florida State from Lamar University in Texas. She transferred to FSU to be closer to her parents, who have a home in Florida, and because she felt this school had high standards both in athletics and academics. She herself exemplified those standards, as she was named to the All- ACC golf team. " Florida State has one of the nicest school spirits that I ' ve seen around, " Rouleau said. Time on the golf course for her was not spent just working on the mechanics of her swing, it is a time when she can " escape from everyday problems, " and can spend time thinking of self-set goals. Though she approaches golf with a relaxed attitude, her ability and leadership on the golf team is evident. Leaderhship to Rouleau is not telling someone what to do, but rather setting an example. " My teammates look up to me and respect me, " Rouleau said. Women ' s golf coach Debbie Miles- Dillman approaches golf with the same attitude as Rouleau by being more of an emotional supporter than a technical coach. This was a positive aspect of their relationship and was what influenced Rouleau to be that type of leader. Marie-Josee Rouleau, a senior, planned to keep golfing as an amateur and eventually join the professional ranks. After graduation, she also planned to spend time with her boyfriend of two years, Stephen Noteboom. Noteboom, from the Netherlands, graduated from Florida State the year before and was competing on the professional tennis tour.

With one senior, a core group of juniors, and a talented crop of freshman, head coach Alice Reen was understandably optimistic about the season. Juniors Audra Brannon and Laura Randmaa excelled in the fall, earning regional and national rankings both individually and as a doubles team. In the spring, the Lady Seminoles compiled a 12-8 record, 5-2 in the ACC. They faced eight Top 25 teams and defeated two. North Carolina and Virginia. Juniors Brannon, Randmaa, Jenny Graf, and Jennifer Hyde brought the most experience to the team. Freshmen Bresha Byrd and Eike Juul contributed at the 3- 6 singles spots. The 1 doubles team of Brannon Randmaa compiled a 15-3 record, while the 2 team of Graf Hyde went 1 1-5. As in the fall, Audra Brannon emerged as the player to beat on the Florida State tennis circuit. During the season she was 61st in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings. She also won the ITA Regional Arthur Ashe award based on sportsmanship and character. The men ' s tennis team also had a core group of talented athletes returning. Junior Ken McKenzie, sophomore Brian Stanton, and lone senior Rick Jacob played the l- 3 singles spots and also the 1-2 doubles teams along v i t h freshman Jason White. The men ' s started the fall with a bang at the Seminole Fall Classic. McKenzie w on the singles competition, while Stanton and Jacob took the doubles title. During spring, the men ' s team won the first SIX matches and finished 16-7, 6-2 in the ACC. They defeated two ranked opponents — Clemson and Miami. In addition to the returners, junior Dean Erlich, transfer Drew Kirkley and Art Martinez, and freshmen White, Adam Baron, and Scott Schuhriemann all saw playing time in singles and doubles matches. Heading into the ACC Championships, both men ' s and women ' s teams were seeded third, and both followed the same route through the tournament. The men defeated Clemson in the first round 5-2, while the women edged UNC 5-4. The men then lost to the 2 UNC in the semifinals, while the women ' s competition ended with Clemson. Both teams finished third as expected. Three Seminoles made the All-ACC team: Audra Brannon, Laura Randmaa, and Brian Stanton.

We haven ' t done that in eight or ten ye3iYs. " -Ken McKenzie The popularity and talent level of the tennis program at Florida State rose significantly S within the past few years. To support that growth, the tennis teams needed bigger and better facilities. Construction started on a new state-of-the-art tennis center to house both the men ' s and women ' s teams. The center featured 12 lighted courts, a 1,300 seat stadium, coaches ' offices and locker rooms. " It will probably be the most lunctional facility in the country because it was designed for collegiate tennis, " men ' s coach Dave Barron said. The facility was named the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. Lieutenant Commander Michael Scott Speicher was the first American killed in Opera tion Desert Storm. Since he graduated from Florida State, the University chose to honor and remember Speicher by naming the new tennis facilities after him. Construction on the center was not completed until the summer.

They came up big at the second annual Golden Torch Gala held in November. The black tie affair honored Seminole athletes who maintained high grades while participating in varsity athletics. The highlights of the evening ' s awards presentation were the awards lor the Outstanding Scholar- Athletes of the Year. Tennis players Amy Hanby and Hiro Takata took the Gala ' s top honors with the highest male and female GPA ' s among 350 W " " " athletes. Each of the tennis teams boasted the highest GPA ' s of all the university ' s sports teams with the women s GPA being a 3.06 and the men ' s a 3.01. The men ' s team had a tradition to uphold. It was the second time they had earned this prestigious honor in as many years. They also had the highest GPA for four years prior to the Gala. Hanby and Takata both led their teams by example. Hanby ' s teammates voted her to receive the 110 Percent award for her commitment and determination to her team and the sport. She also excelled in Florida State ' s College of Education, posting a 3.94 GPA. Takata, a psychology major had a aadi Ecck) uptofattthel Jb.

Women ' s tennis coach Alice Reen said, " One of the first priorities I try to instill when an athlete comes to FSU is the need to strive for academic excellence. Their accomplishments in the classroom are a genuine concern for me and a responsibility that I gladly accept. " She had some help. Seminole athletes were the beneficiaries of one of the nation ' s premier academic support systems. A lull time staff assisted incoming student-athletes and helped them adjust to college life. They continued to aid them throughout their academic careers. In addition to the support staff, all athletes had access to a study hall very conducive to learning. Free tutors were also available. Men ' s tennis coach Dave Barron was proud of his team ' s accomplishments on and off the court. He believed there was a strong correlation between tennis and other aspects of student life. If things are going bad off the court it will affect the athlete ' s performance. " It ' s pretty evident that these guys take their academics just as serious as their athletics, " he said. " It ' s something I want to see accomplished by these student- athletes year in and year out — success in their class work. " " " Academics has always been our highest team goal, " Coach Reen said. Both men ' s and women ' s tennis teams ' perseverance showed how a group could be the epitome of both scholars and athletes.

There were many answers to that question. But no matter how athletically skilled or klutzy students may have been, they could always get involved in intramural sports. In the fall, students competed in flag tootball, with the Players taking the all-campus championship. In volleyball, lOE captured the crown. The team Body Count brought home the soccer title, and Legal Noles won the women ' s soccer championship. In field goal kicking, both Sean Scheller and Greg Gendron kicked 55 yards and tied for the win. On the courts, Steve Huber and Jennifer Gedeon took the individual advanced tennis titles, with ZTA winning the sorority division. In racquetball Todd Peterson and Angie Lund won the men ' s and women ' s titles. OZK won the Gold fraternity division, and AXA won the Garnet division. On a smaller court, Chinghu Tseng won men ' s table tennis and Chen Yuan won women ' s. ZOE won over all fraternities. In bowling, Melissa Martin took the women ' s title, with Steven Hoeft capturing the men ' s. Wrestling saw OK4 win the Gold and ZO taking the Garnet division. The Reservation Run was a popular IM event and John De Grummond won the annual race. The intramurals schedule for spring was just as busy as fall. The Hoopsters took the all- campus championship in basketball and the Lemon Shots won the women ' s title. In sand volleyball, FIJI won the fraternity division, KKF won the sorority division. Dig This won the women ' s competition, and Michael Hurley and A. Espino spiked their way to the all- campus championship. A sport that involved a lot of students was softball. Cawthon Supporters won the residence hall division, with the Bat Girls taking the women ' s title. ATQ vas the all-campus champion. In co-rec innertube water polo, a team made up of members from the FSU Circus won overall. Allison Nygren won the loul shooting contest for the women, with a seven- way tie occurring for the men. Dean Reilly took first place in squash. In putt-putt golf, Rob Dawson and XQ were the big winners. Swimming and track and field both consisted of many events, but ZOE and ZX were the fraternity winners, and AXQ emerged as sorority champs. ZO and OZK were the overall winners in the IM track meet, but the team Three Brothers and a White Man won the 4x 1 00 relay. Champions or not, students experienced relaxation and relief from classes, studying and stress by swimming, putt- putting, kicking, bowling, etc. .through the intramurals program.

Or maybe sand volleyball was your sport but Sinjin Smith had not discovered you on the beaches yet? Most likely, you were just a student who enjoyed sports and wanted to get involved. The best and most popular -way to do that was through intramural sports, commonly known as " IM " . A wide variety of sports were offered throughout the entire year, even during the summer. If there was a sport not offered by the IM program, all a student had to do was let them know about it. The intramurals staff encouraged new ideas.

Biggerstaff also did not know it would be so easy to get a chance at w inning the money. " I went to a table in the concourse and filled out a card that was put into a box. Two names were picked out of it and mine was one of them, " Biggerstaff said. The graduate student had signed up for a halftime contest, and those whose names were drawn had the opportunity to win $10,000 by completing a layup, a free throw, a three point shot and a shot from midcourt in 30 seconds. Quite a task for someone who was " sweating and nervous " as he descended the steps to the court. " But as soon as I got the ball in my hands I calmed down. When I let go of the ball (for the halfcourt shot), it looked like it was going in but then the buzzer w ent off, " Biggerstaff said. How ever, the shot counted and Biggerstaff was given the choice of $10,000 or a Ford Mustang. Although he considered taking the car, his wife Rachel, encouraged him to accept the money instead. " I ' m buying a computer and we ' re putting the rest in the bank, " Biggerstaff said. The money was a pleasant surprise to Biggerstaff who pursued a doctorate in exercise physiology and wanted to become a college professor. For his assistantship he ran a fitness program with the Tallahassee Fire Department and received a small salary and tuition waiver. This basketball game hosted th e second largest crowd in the college ' s history. Although Biggerstaff had played before an audience as a member of an intramural team. The Sprockets, he had never performed in front of 13,333 people. " I ' d never been in front of so many screaming people. Immediately after I ' d made the shot, I felt such a rush, " Biggerstaff said. The audience was also stunned by the night ' s events. They were excited about the Seminoles ' lead over the Blue Devils as well as their fellow student ' s accomplishment. " Everyone was screaming and out of control. My friends and I couldn ' t believe we just w atched this guy win $1 0,000. The buzzer went off and he ran around the court waving his arms. It was incredible, " junior Michelle Pinto said. Biggerstaff received some teasing from his Sprocket teammates but all in fun. They wanted him to shoot from midcourt more often. But he was the first to admit that the shot was " definitely luck. " " The team was real excited for me. NoAV they want me to take them all out, " Biggerstaff said. Over the Top During the IM track meet, a student tries his skills on the high jump. Jeffrey Obos won the event. The meet included all track and field events and was open to individuals and teams. Intramurals 159 CL LLI LiJC seemed to be the word for the year for the University ' s Greek system. Not wanting to remain stagnant, Greeks made necessary changes to improve their image from previous semesters. The sorority rush program vas hit the hardest with new rules and requirements. Budgets were hmited, skits and outside decorations were downplayed and lawn routines were eliminated to encourage members to interact more with the rushees. Sorority pledge programs also refocused; some limited pledging programs while others revised officer titles, job descriptions and by-laws. Pan Greek hosted the most extensive Extravaganza to date, raised funds to attend the Black Leadership Conference and earned several stepping competition titles. The Loop Spring Challenge offered an outlet for Greeks to come together philanthropically. Greeks raised over $60,000 for each of their philanthropies. Sigma Chi recognized the tremendous impact AIDS had on this generation and changed their philanthropy to benefit AIDS education and support. The year began with a shift in fraternity housing for various reasons and it ended on the same note.

It was also the chance tor students as a whole to discover what the Greek system was all about. Fraternity rush was a week long event that began with an information meeting and was followed by open parties the remainder of the week. Each fraternity held parties at their respective houses which were open to all students. These parties gave perspectives a chance to see what each fraternity had to offer and decided which, if any, best met their needs. One of the main purposes of a rush party was to provide the perspectives with as much information about the fraternity as possible. Fraternities enticed the student population as a whole to attend these rush parties. Each competed to have the best entertainment and food offerings for the evening by booking local bands or the Golden Girls to perform and having food donated from local establishments. During the week fraternities began giving out bids, which were invitations to join the fraternity. When a bid was received, it did not mean that perspective was obligated to join that fraternity, it was merely an invitation. Fraternity rush officially ended on Saturday. " Receiving a bid is the first step in becoming a full fledged member of a fraternity, " Lambda Chi Alpha brother Mike Masterman- Smith said. While fraternity rush was considered to be an informal rush, sorority rush was just the opposite. Formal sorority rush was much more structured and to participate, one had to register and pay a rush fee. Sorority rush was also a week long process but varied a great deal from fraternity rush. Like fraternity rush, sorority rush began with an information meeting on Sunday. Those participating were split into rush groups and assigned to a Rho Chi. I o Chis were preselected members of sororities who agreed to disassociate themselves for the entire week of rush and serve as unbiased counselors to the rushees. On Monday and Tuesday, rushees visited each sorority house for ice water socials. They vere called ice w aters because the sororities served ice water to combat Tallahassee ' s sweltering August heat while they gave the rush groups general information about their individual sorority. At the conclusion of the day, rushees ret urned to their rush (Continued on page 164) BY NANCY FLOYD Rush 163 Rushing (Continued from 163) groups and prioritized which houses they wanted to return to. " Ice waters were very overwhelming. You try to remember everyone ' s name and try to decide in a very short amount ot time it that is a house you want to return to, " fall rushee Laura Koeler said. On Wednesday and Thursday, each rushee visited no more than nine of the 16 sororities and was given a tour of each house along with an information sheet which outlined in detail the financial obligations of sorority membership. After the last tour of the day, rushees returned to their rush groups and once again prioritized the sororities. On Friday, rushees attended a maximum of five sororities. This gave the rushees more time to ask questions and meet individual members. On this day, skits were performed to better educate the rushees about the sorority. At the conclusion of the day, rushees returned to their rush groups to prioritize their choices once again. " Skit day was very exciting because it gave us a much clearer perception of what the sororities were really like, " rushee Sara Nieporent said. Through a mutual selection process, rushees focused on no more than three sororities by Saturday. Preferential parties gave an opportunity for more one-on-one interaction and these parties were the most important because here w as where the final choices regarding membership were made. Sororities were only allowed to extend a certain number of bids. Final selection took place in Moore Auditorium. Rushees ' choices -were filled out in complete silence and it was Sunday before they found out which sorority selected them to join. With card in hand, each girl went to her new home and was greeted by her sisters. " Each class represents a new portion ot the sorority and that gives all of us, new and old, a new outlook on the future, " Alpha Gamma Delta sister Ann Kemper said. |l H ' i w AKA Alpha Kappa Alpha held fundraisers including a car vash, dances and raffles.

The When the University ' s Interfraternity Council implemented " dry " rush (non-alcoholic) in 1986, t e Animal Hoiu e image ol Greeks began to lade. This past year ' s IFC and Panhellenic Association developed new rules and ideas to increase student involvement and retention in upcoming rushes. One of these brainstorms resulted a new organization called Greek Ambassadors. The new troupe of Ambassadors were Greeks who visited high school students in their hometowns in May and informed prospective freshmen about the advantages of belonging to a Greek organization. They educated students about fraternities and sororities without affiliating themselves with any particular Greek house in order to benefit the entire system. " One of my objectives and IPC ' s and Panhellenic s objectives is to sell the Greek system as a whole to up-and-coming freshmen, " Vice President of Rush Hamlet Yousit said. Other ideas generated were designed as fun events to appeal to students on a one-on-one basis. A Greek barbecue was planned at the Seminole Reservation which allowed non-Greeks to learn about the system while they mingled with fraternity and sorority members. A parent ' s guide for the Greek system was put into an educational flyer for the parents of Greek hopefuls which explained the positive aspects of joining a fraternal organization such as community service, philanthropy, leadership and friendship. " There are a lot of benefits other than partying, " Yousif said. A Union Blitz was another idea that started during Greek Week and was planned for summer orientation students. Greeks who participated in the Blitz last Spring brought brochures, pictures and representatives to tables in the Union and helped students learn the differences and similarities between the many Greek houses. Rush seminars given by the IFC and Executive Council were optional, but suggested, to rushees. They were scheduled for each BY ALICIA HARBOUR Rush Rules 167 Changing (Continued from page 168) Monday and Wednesday of Summer Orientation sessions and informational seminars on the Monday night of fraternity rush and the night before sorority rush. Optional bus rides to all of the fraternity houses was also suggested for exposure to many different chapters on campus. IFC rush was traditionally reliant on word-of-mouth recruitment which pigeonholed certain houses over others. Conversely, Panhellenic rush was held in a formal style which required rushing women to visit all of the sorority houses. Restrictions on rush were devised for informal fraternity rush parties to give them similar structure within IFC guidelines. Greeks were not allowed to rush with kegs of beer on the premises and they could not extend a bid to a Tallahassee Community College student unless he had already taken six credit hours at the University and was planning to enroll in the next semester. Sororities also adopted certain rules that the National Panhellenic Association enforced to decrease the number of women who dropped out of rush before the end of the A ' eek. During Fall rush, sororities were not allowed to perform lawn routines as they had in the past, because Panhellenic wanted to encourage greater emphasis on conversation between Greeks and rushees. Skits and outside decorations were also downplayed in this same fashion when performances on stage became second fiddle to interaction with potential sisters. Panhellenic decided to limit rush budgets to the average of every house ' s previous rush budgets from the year before. The total limit sororities were allowed to spend on rush paraphernalia was $5000, according to Rush Chairman Donna Cole. " We are also getting away from the uniform dress that each sorority wears and we ' re encouraging everyone to get to know each other better, " Cole said. roB Gamma Phi Beta ' s annual philanthropy was Gainina Phi Laugh Off, a stand up comedy show.

Purpose what did one think ot when girls were seen in trilly dresses with bows in their hair, receiving big baskets filled vith useless gilts, running around campus in their pajamas or being led blindtolded to a Iraternity house? Sorority pledges? Many sororities attempted to abandon that image by altering their pledge programs. Alpha Chi Omega was one sorority that initiated a new program because of interest from national headquarters. It w as developed to express equality among members with a theme of " W oman to Woman. " " There were two main benefits, that of emphasizing the idea of membership lasting a lifetime and the equality of the chapter as a whole, " Vice President of Education Liz Rios said. " Everyone is responsible for everything. Duties are not left up to just one person. " Sororities tried to take the focus away from some of the negatives associated with pledging, such as gifts and hazing, by shifting the emphasis to more positive areas such as sisterhood and membership development. Pledges were called " new members, " former pledge educators were now Vice Presidents of Education and initiation dates vere moved up. Some " new members " were even allowed to attend chapter meetings, although the extent of participation in ritual ceremonies varied. Many of the programs carried over to other areas in the sorority besides the pledge programs. Officers ' titles were changed, job descriptions were altered, different areas were given greater or lesser attention and chapter by-laws were rewritten. Some sororities chose not to alter their programs or did so to a lesser degree. (Continued on page 172). BY BETH KEMMER Pledge Programs 171 Refocusing (Continued from page 171) " We ' re going to watch other ' s progress. We want to be cautious, " Kappa Kappa Gamma Pledge Educator Beth Corcoran said. Kappa Kappa Gamma had a shortened program of ten weeks but waited until the Spring semester to initiate new members to ensure grade point averages. Corcoran said scholarship was a large part ol their program. Pi Beta Phi also did not make major changes to their program. " I didn ' t mind not having a new program and it didn ' t affect my decision when going through rush, " Fall pledge class member Kandi Kelly said. " I liked the pace and wasn ' t overwhelmed. " Older sisters who had gone through the older programs sometimes had a difficult time adjusting. The often heard comment was " We had it so much harder when I was a pledge... " " Many of the older members had trouble dealing with change but some of what was altered was due to the University hazing policies and not individual chapters and therefore they would have changed regardless, " Jennifer Peterson, a four-year member of Alpha Chi Omega, said. AZ0 The Kappa Epsllon chapter of Delta Sigma Theta raised money for events including the Crop Walk, March of Dimes WalkAmerica, the Tallahassee Urban League and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

Leading Into The Future The lights dimmed and the glass doors of the Union Ballroom rattled from the intensity of the bass as unusual sounds and calls were heard throughout the party, from the deep voices bellowing " Blue-Phi " to the squeaking " Skeeweet " of high pitched voices. Within no time, line stepping by the fraternities and sororities began. " This was more than just a party, " Pan Greek Advisor Carol Ross said. " Pan Greek worked diligently to raise funds to go to an important leadership conference at Indiana University. " The Black Greek Leadership Conference was the event that Pan Greek raised a total of $6700 to attend. The conference was developed in 1987 on the campus of Central Missouri State University with the primary purpose of allo ving African- American Greeks to have the opportunity to organize and implement a conference addressing issues that faced them on predominantly white university campuses. The weekend of Oct. 30 educated Pan Greek members on their organizations ' dedication to brother and sisterhood, scholarship and service. They also had workshops and speakers on the retention of minority students at predominantly white institutions by focusing on academic achievement and developing leadership potential. The conference was not based on fraternity and sorority life alone but also focused on time and risk management and values. " Pan Greek learned many different things at the conference and was able to get ideas from Greeks at different schools. As a result they implemented new programs here at Florida State and started a line of communication with their counterparts at different institutions, " Pan Greek President Annesia Ogarro said. Along with their personal fundraisers, Pan Greek went to the Student Government Association to ask for funding. They received additional money to put with w hat they had been raising since the summer before the conference. There was a force behind each Pan Greek member w ho w orked the doors, did the paperwork, passed out flyers and cleaned up after the party. This force helped them to make enough money to embark upon an educational and enlightening conference. " The conference lived up to its ' slogan ' Dedicated To The Future ' , " Ross said. " It was w orth every dime, drop ofsweat and step.

Exploring The Alternatives Telephones rang, doors banged shut, there was laughter and yelling in the hall vays and everyone waited lor an available shower. That w as the life for the hundreds of University students who lived in sorority and fraternity housing. Besides being unique from students who lived in dorms and apartments, some Greeks had the novel aspect of sleeping porches. A sleeping porch was a designated room in a sorority house Filled only with beds which was kept quiet and dark at all times. The girls slept there rather than in their actual rooms. The purpose behind the sleeping porches was to provide more convenience regarding studying and getting prepared for school and work. Not all houses utilized sleeping porches. " My biggest sacrifice when I moved in the house was the loss of privacy, " Alpha Chi Omega member Tracey Finley said. By sleeping in a separate room, roommates were not disturbed by lights, blowdryers or the normal early morning hustle. Sleeping porches not only made it easier for people to sleep, they also allowed for more space in the bedrooms. Most rooms in the houses with sleeping porches were for three girls which left room for desks, tables, shelves and televisions. This also permitted more members to live in the house and provided for better academic environments. Members could stay up late to study for an important test without disturbing their roommates. Most sorority members who experienced sleeping porches enjoyed them. " As soon as you go in, you know you ' re going to sleep. It ' s a placeyou can always sleep, no matter what time it is, " Delta Delta Delta member Stacey Hypes said. The girls said the sleeping porches provided the perfect sleeping conditions. The temperature was just right, there were no lights and the only sound allowed was alarm clocks. Did all of the alarm clocks set for different times drive one ,9 M ost sorority mem- bers who sleep in sleeping porches also have day beds in their rooms.

You learn to tune intoyour own and don ' t hear the others after awhile, " Sigma Kappa Amy Maynard said. In the past, Alpha Gamma Delta sorority tried the different concept of a wake-up board. One person set an alarm and each sister was successively responsible for waking up the next sister at the posted BY BETH KEMMER Sleeping Porches 177 Exploring (Continued from page 177) time. When this did not work out, members were allowed individual clocks with the rule of no snooze alarms. " The only disadvantage now is people who snore or talk in their sleep, " Alpha Gamma Delta member Julie Dikes said. Sorority members said there was not a problem when people were sick either. Dikes said at her house the girls also had day beds in their room. " People usually slept there when they were sick so as not to disturb others with coughs and sneezes, " Dikes said. Although Maynard said she had not really thought about the safety factor of all the girls sleeping in one area, Dikes cited an instance when the house alarm went off. " We were able to pinpoint the cause easily because the majority of the girls were all located in the same area, " Dikes said. Dikes said the sleeping porches were somewhat of a strange concept. Most girls who went through sorority rush had just come from living at home. The idea of a dorm room was odd enough, let alone that of 15 or 20 girls sleeping on bunk beds in one room of a so rority house. " The idea was difficult to explain during rush but after living in a dorm, I liked them better, " Dikes said. " My favorite part of the sleeping porches is thatyou don ' t have to makeyour bed! " Maynard said. " It definitely is different but I like living in the house better because, one, it ' s the chance of a lifetime. Two, it ' s convenient for dinner, meetings, etc. and three, and most important, it ' s right in the middle of everything. There ' s never a dull moment, ' Alpha Chi Omega senior Jennifer Peterson said. KA0 Kappa Alpha Theta held the annual Battle of the Greek Godd.

Helping Each other Big brothers and big sisters, a crucial part of the Greek system, have been useful in their service as a liaison between the new member and the organization. They made the organization more personal and played a vital role in the new members achievement of their goal of eventual initiation. The most profound effects, how ever, were felt in the personal relationships fostered as the big brothers and sisters helped their little siblings overcome the adversity that faced them and find their own niche within the organization. " My big sister is a role model to me. She has always been there for me. When I was a pledge, I w as shy and overwhelmed by the sorority and she alw ays made me feel at home, " newly initiated Zeta Tau Alpha sister Nicki Abbott said. In most Greek organizations, the selection process was by mutual agreement. Soon after rush, each member and pledge submitted their top two or three preferences and the pledge trainer pair them up as closely as possible to the original choices. (Continued on page 182) BY ROB McCANNELL MIKE MASTERMAN-SMITH Big Sis Big Bro 181 Helping (Continued from page 181) " My little brother Drew is awesome. I had an idea of choosing him during rush but after a lew weeks into the semester, he was definitely my choice, " Lambda Chi Alpha brother Wes Grant said. Pledges and associated members typically received their big brothers or sisters in some sort ol ritual, the formality ol which varied from house to house. In some organizations, this milestone was reached soon after formally pledging, while in others it was one ot the last steps on the road to initiation. " We have what are called ' Heart Sisters, ' which are mutually chosen at the beginning ot the semester. These are the hrst sisters we really get to know. At the end of the semester we choose our big sisters and usually they are one of our heart sisters, " Zeta Tau Alpha April Carey said. Regardless of how or when they were selected, big brothers and big sisters did their best to see to the initiation of the new members and in doing so played their part in keeping the Greek system moving forward and growing with the times.

For each coupon redeemed , the restaurant donated twenty-five cents to the organization ' s philanthropy. The idea originated at Loop restaurants in Jacksonville, Florida, but was traditionally held between employees at different locations. Since there was only one Loop restaurant in Tallahassee, a college oriented contest was developed. The stakes increased the final week of the Challenge giving participants a chance to increase their earnings. The redemption value was raised to thirty cents per coupon. They also offered a special drawing of two tickets to the Mainstage presentation of Caimlle and dinner for two. Grand prize went to Delta Gamma sorority which earned %S7) toward its philanthropy.

The Extrav was an annual step show hosted by the members ot Pan Greek that took place each fall semester. Stepping was a mixture ol African and modern street dance. The seven Pan Greek organizations put in months of preparation tor the event and also spent money on props and costumes to enhance the aesthetic value of the show. " All the organizations take this competition very seriously. They make a lot of sacrifices and become emotional wrecks during this time, " Pan Greek Advisor Carol Ross said. The Extrav was lull of drama from the emotional to the theatrical portions of the show. The organizations who performed were Sigma Gamma Rho sorority. Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma fraternity and Delta Sigma Theta sorority. Unfortunately because of a last minute illness, the members of Zeta Phi Beta sorority were unable to perform. " This was very upsetting because we won last year, I was looking forward to defending our title, " ZOB Vice President Annesia O ' garro said. This was no regular Extrav; there were steppers with gold boots, diamonds that lit up, hooded women with their own D.J. and canes that glowed in the dark. It was the compilation of songs, music and dance that made the Extrav such a spectacle. " This was one of the most exciting sho vs I have ever seen, " sophomore Yolonda Reed said. At the end of the show there were two winners, AZ0 and KA4 . The Extrav raised over $5,000 for the Pan Greek Council which was used to help members attend the Black Greek Leadership Conference.

Photo by Robert Parker. Housing Changes Continue Remember that game where everyone ran around a circle of chairs minus one until the music stopped? Then everyone tried to grab the nearest available seat. That was similar to what happened on fraternity row during one short summer. Numerous Iraternities relocated to ditterent houses, some underwent reconstruction and others packed up and moved oH campus. Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Kappa Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega, Delta Tau Delta, Sigma Nu and Phi Kappa Tau all had long term leases from the University. " In the past, the University was responsible for maintaining the fraternity houses that they owned. Recently, they have neglected to do that. For a while, the hre marshall overlooked the violations but alter a while they put pressure on the University to do something about it, " ZAE house manager Ted Stout said. Many ol them were required to make renovations in order to bring their houses, or rather the University ' s houses, up to current safety codes. " Basically, the University is telling us that we have to invest $300,000, mostly to replace wiring and plumbing, in order to be able to rent the property, " Stout said. Theta Chi had a University owned house but moved to an extensively renovated house on West Pensacola Street which was owned by the fraternity ' s alumni. Beta Theta Pi moved into the house that was occupied by Delta Chi house on West College Avenue while Delta Sigma Phi moved into the house that had been occupied by Zeta Beta Tau. Zeta Beta Tau moved next door and AX relocated down the street. Sigma Chi was temporarily located at the former Sigma Delta Tau sorority house next to the XX house on West College Avenue. While most of the houses on College Avenue were privately rented, the ZAT house was owned by the state of Florida. After only two short semesters, it seemed as though changes were in order once again. Although Chi Phi owned its house, the fraternity allowed ZAE to lease Irom them. Chi Phi moved Irom their location on West Pensacola Street into their former house on West College Avenue which had been occupied by AZO. Chi Phi wanted to be temporarily located on West College Avenue to be closer to the action during rush week. " It is very difficult for a smaller fraternity like Chi Phi to rush out of our current location. We want to spend some time back on fraternity row ' and then decide what we want to do about housing for the long term, ' XO president Stuart Cohen said.

The turn-out on Oct. 6 was great, as many students showed up with questions and an eagerness to learn about the AIDS virus. " I was overwhelmed that fraternities and sororities alike were there. People came on their own will, not out of obligation, and everyone seemed to learn something new. It was a very positive step in a campus point of view to have so many young people there. Hopefully everyone who attended got something out of it, " ZTA member Christine Merritt said. The two hour meeting consisted of a panel of speakers with knowledge on various aspects of the AIDS virus, including an AIDS patient, family members of AI DS patients and a psychiatrist. Big Bend Cares and the Tallahassee AIDS Support System, two organizations that provided much information on the emotional, psychological and biological aspects of AIDS, were also present at the forum. " In Tallahassee there are so many groups of people working with the AIDS virus who are w illing to help and answer questions. Allyou have to do is ask, " Merritt said. After the panel of guests spoke, the forum turned towards safe sex and AIDS prevention. Free informative brochures and birth control were passed out among students. The last part of the forum was a question and answer period in which students could privately write down questions about AIDS and have them answered. " It w as fun, entertaining and educational — the atmosphere was so relaxed that anyone could ask questions and not feel embarrassed. It made everyone comfortable enough that AIDS awareness increased immensely " , ZTA Historian Meg Manning said. The AIDS Forum had a beneficial effect on all who went, as AIDS awareness increased at the University. The sorority planned to continue their yearly contribution to the campus every fall. " It is not a problem that involves just the Greek system, it is a nationwide problem that affects all of us, " ZTA President Shannon Leete said.

The Derby Aside from the image A ii»m Hoiwe portrayed Greeks to have, there existed another side just as characteristic; that of philanthropy. In 1992 alone, Greeks raised over $60,000 for various philanthropies ranging from the March ol Dimes to AIDS research and awareness. Methods of raising lunds for various chanties were very creative; activities ranged from tricycle races to beauty pageants and linedance competitions. The money raised at these events went to benefit a fraternity or sorority ' s philanthropy which was generally chosen by the national office and remained the same every year. For40years, Sigma Chi ' sZ)fr ;i Z) zi ' ' one ofthe oldest and most anticipated events in the Greek community, had taken place on campus. Proceeds had traditionally gone to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. It was changed to benefit Tallahassee Big Bend Cares, a local charity and a subsidiary agency ol the United Way. It dealt specifically with AIDS education and support. Not only was the philanthropy changed but the format oi Derby Day t was changed as well. In the past there was a week ol festivities and sorority competitions, hence the name Derby Dayj. The popularity of the Derby ' ii format, including competitions between the different Greek houses, grew so much that the IFC was forced to cut Derby Day. to just one day because the calendar was so filled with other houses ' philanthropy events. The Epsilon Zeta chapter of Sigma Chi fraternity decided to change their philanthropy in order to benefit a local charity, since many other Greeks had the MDA as their philanthropy as well. The brothers felt that AIDS was a more timely issue and the change was well received by everyone. " I thought that it was time for a change. With the disease spreading so rapidly, I wanted to make the community and the campus more aware of the problem and of its prevention. And what better audience to receive that message than students, " Sigma Chi Philanthropy Chair Chris Trier said. (Continued on page 192.) BY TODD KIMMELMAN Derby Days 191 Diversifying (Continued from page 191) The virus was spreading so rapidly and the statistics were so overwhelming that more awareness was needed on campus and in the Greek community. " It ' s an issue that hits closer to home. More people our age are dying ol AIDS these days than they are ol muscular dystrophy, " Sigma Chi brother Todd Watson said. Another medium used to boost awareness for the event was the Derby Day, ' magazine. Instead ol being hlled with advertisements Irom sponsors alone, it also had AIDS facts and stories designed to encourage awareness and activism. " This program is different from all ol our past Derby Dayj magazines in that it is designed not only as an advertising medium but also as an educational tool for people from all walks of campus and the community, " Trier said. It vas estimated that by the year 2000, one out of every four people -will have been inlected with the filV Virus, the precursor to the AIDS Virus, and in a student population it was likely to be even higher. Although the decision to change philanthropies was that of the philanthropy chair.

How ever, there was a way for each student to find themselves and to find a niche in which they belong. The niche was found through organizations. There v as a special place for each individual to become a name, a face and a friend for someone else in these clubs. Holding a senate seat could have been a " niche " for one person where belonging to the Ultimate Frisbee Club or to the Wesley Foundation was perfect for another. On a campus where there was a Jewish Student Union, a Black Student Union and a Baptist Student Union every student becomes more than a number. It was in these organizations that students learned about life. It was here that people learned to how to manage their " life " . A student may have a full class load, work, homework and still somehow. ..some way found time to make it to the meeting at 7p.m. , work on the story project ad that is due for another club and manage to tell their friends and family that they really enjoyed being busy.

There was a concentration on the four C ' s in their service: campus, community, chapter and country. Along with these concentrations the foundation of the fraternity was on three cardinal principles: leadership, friendship and service. They participated in many service projects that included the annual Jail n ' Bail, Ugly ' Nole on Campus an organ donor drive. Muscular Distrophy Association ' s Halloween Haunted Trail and March of Dimes WalkAmerica. They raised approximately $ 1 0, 000 for those and other charities 202 Organizations Chosen as the 1992 Organization of the Year, Alpha Phi Omega members worked even harder to estab- lish themselves within the campus and community. AOQ was a national, co-ed service fraternity based upon the three cardinal principles of leadership, friendship and ser- vice. What the Iota Rho chapter of AOQ was best known for, though, was its service. Broken down into four categories, AOQ concentrated on the four C ' s for its service program: campus, community, chapter and country. " By dedicating ourselves to serving the four C ' s, ALWAYS THERE TO SERVE our organizaiton has a very fulfilling and well rounded program of community service, " Robin Kaye, service vice president for the spring, said. On campus, AOQ worked with various organiza- tions including the Women ' s Center, Disabled Student Services and International Student Affairs. For the Women ' s Center, members organized the Blue Ribbon Campaign for Stop Rape Week. Members helped with the ISA dinner and assisted disabled students by raising money through a car wash, doing a flyer blitz and reading weekly for Independence for the Blind. AOQ focused a great deal of energy on community service within the Tallahassee area. For the Easter Seals, members worked a bike-a-thon and did landscaping at the office. AOQ brothers cleaned their Monroe Street stretch on the Adopt-a- Highway program, helped clean St. Francis Wildlife Foundation and washed buses for Taltran. Work days were held with Octoberfix and the Florida Baptist Children ' s Home. AOQ also had three ongoing projects that lasted throughout the year. There was a weekly project babysitting for the Tallahassee Coalition for the Homeless in addition to working with the Emergency Care and Help Organization. The fraternity also w orked with the Associa- tion for Retarded Citizens. A weekly bowling project took place each Monday night in addition to a Halloween and a Valentine ' s Day dance. Additional community projects included the Ronald McDonald House Spring Clean-up, working at the Nature Conservancy, helping with the Tallahassee Animal Shelter Adopt-a-pet, working at the Very Special Arts Big Bend Art Festival, decorating Tallahassee Memorial and Regional Medical Center ' s children ' s ward for St. Patrick ' s Day, hosting Spring Fun Day preparing and having brunch with residents of Lake Ella Manor. Since AOQ was founded on the principles of scouting, members helped w ith a work day at both the Boy Scout and Girl Scout camps and helped w ith the Boy Scout Expo at the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center. For the chapter itself, members organized a safety conference, a leadership development seminar and had a motivational speaker. They also held a chapter planning (continued on page 205) BY NANCY FLOYD Alpha Phi Omega 203 R. ising money for March of Dimes took hard work and long hours.

On a national level, AOil served the country when Hurricane Andrew devastated South Florida, AOH broth- ers jumped right in and assisted by helping collect money at the University football game against Wake Forest. " I think that so many brothers were willing to help because it hit home. Everyone knew someone that had been aflected, " Kelly McCabe, vice president of service lor the fall, said. " Even though it was last minute, there was no problem getting help because everyone understood the urgency of the need. " Once again, AOQ assisted the Muscular Dystro- phy Association with the Halloween Haunted Trail. A new twist was added, ho ' wever, as members not only worked vith the trail but actually helped construct it as well. In the Union, members manned tables that con- ducted an organ donor drive, Ugly ' Nole on Campus that raised $600 tor the American Red Cross as well as the White Christmas tood and clothing collection tor the United Way. AOQ also distributed information for the Ameri- can Diabetes Association, raised money and walked in the CROP Walk tor Church World Services . Spring brought a challenge to the fraternity with two tremendous projects. In addition to working the mall site, AOQ organized a campus based Jail ' N Bail which raised $6700 tor the American Cancer Society. " It was w ondertul being part of such a worthwhile event that gathered together so many people. It was amazing that e accomplished so much even though we were limited to just campus, " Parole Board Captain Kim Pearcy said. AOQ also raised $4900 for March of Dimes WalkAmerica, which was the largest amount tor a campus organization and the tenth largest amount overall. Money was raised through car washes, bake sales and door-to-door donations. " Considering it was the walk that never was, w e raised one hundred percent over our total from lastyear. As a traternity, we challenged ourselves and as a fraternity, we pulled together to meet this challenge, " co-chair EA David said. " We sho A ' ed ourselves what can be accomplished when we work together.

It presented various cultural, educational and social events throughout the year. The organization was made up of different types of students. " We want to cater to students from the Caribbean, those ol Caribbean ancestry, students who study it and those who are interested in the Caribbean and its culture, " Bryan Alii, president of the Caribbean Student Association, said. A main component of the group ' s activities was its general meeting. Guest speakers attended and members CARIBBEAN CLUB NAMED ORGANIZATION OF THE YEAR played cultural games. ' It ' s basically a chance lor everyone to get to know one another. We have about 70 to 80 people attending the meetingsand we want to inform and entertain them, " Alii said. This organization sponsor ed the Cane Cutters program which was designed to make the public aware of migrant workers in South Florida. Many companies sacrificed the safety and health of the workers in order to make a profit. Films, lectures and debates enlightened the public to this problem of exploitation. The Caribbean Students Association provided cultural retreats for its members to educate them in a fun and relaxed way. In the fall, the organization held its retreat at the Reservation. It contained all aspects of Caribbean culture such as music, food, films and sports. " We hope they feel at home, " Alh said. In addition to educating and entertaining the university ' s students, the Caribbean Students Association developed a relationship with the Tallahassee community. " We have a commitment to bettering the Tallahassee community, " Alii said. This organization was important to the activities of the city ' s Urban League. The Caribbean Students Association raised money for the league through bake sales and membership drives. Its help aided such activities as the Youth Program and the Victims ' Assistance Program. These programs educated youths and kept them off the street and helped victims of violent crimes. The Caribbean Students Association promoted diversity of culture, encouraged all to participate and demonstrated concern for the community. It came as no surprise that this outstanding group was named Organization of the Year. " We ' re working toward a common cause. ..unity, " Alii said. BYCANDICE CASE Carribean 207 " Gently down the stream... " is not the way to describe ho v FSU Crew rows their boats. The new team made a wake across the southeast, as well as the Ivy League domain of the north. Conceived in spring of 1990, the Rowing Club set out to establish a program for recreation. Then by fall of 1991, competitive racing was introduced to FSU rowers , at the Head ot ol the Chattahoochee Regatta in Atlanta. Since that First regatta, the Rowing Club became the Crew Club. Through tundraising and toresighted allocations by the student senate. Crew has been growing into a functioning athletic team. Though still a club sport, ROWING THEIR WAY TO NATIONALS the crew has developed a regular regime ol rowing practices, land aerobic training and weight training. Any student can join the crew, but lew stay with the program. Those who do gain sell respect and a lun way of keeping physically Fit. This season marked a milestone lor FSU crew. Combined membership of the men ' s and women ' s teams was well over forty people. The First official coach for the crew arrived from Syracuse. Heather Mills had rowed for the Women ' s Varsity Eight while at Syracuse and brought her experience to help train FSU rowers. Also, in February, the US Olympic Rowing coach, Kris Korzeniowski, came to visit the crew. At the encouragement ol the Crew president, Joe Hodges, Korzeniowski gave training tips to the team as well as the new coach. Expecting to see an extremely feeble program, Korzeniowski was surprised such a self motivated group of athletes. " To have to endure such poor rowing conditions (old equipment, lack ol funding, no boat house, weed chocked lake). I am impressed to find the great effort put forth by Florida State rowers, " Korzenio wski said. With this effort, the men and women of the crew were able to race in several categories per regatta. The crew entered both novice and varsity level races as well. The Crew competed in si.x regattas, plus one boat qualified for the national Rowing Championships. " No one thinks of FSU as a rowing school because we are so new, but we put our names on the map, " Andre Armenariz said. Armenariz rowed in the in the Men ' s Four at the National rowing Championship in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, along with Mark Helms, Ronnie Hamed and Johnathan Maket. " FSU was the obvious underdog, " Helms said. The one who calls the shots as w ell as the stroke rate, is the coxswain, Yvonne Colodny. Colodny coxed the boats at Nationals. " FSU is virtually unknown and we had to prove ourselves as worthy opponents, " Colodny said. BY CLARKE COOPER 208 Organizations o ne early morning Spring practice Clarke Cooper practices sculling.

Women U Crew Men ' c Crew The woman ' s crew, like the men ' s team has an experienced and novice combination. Like the men ' s team they too had a large variety of experience and backrounds. They too competed in varying racing categories. A definite significance with women and crew, is the accessibility the sport has allowed for women. As early as the 1 870 ' s women have rowed on competitive levels. Today federal legislation on equitable funding for school athletics, has helped to expand the amount of female rowing teams in the United States. This men ' s crew is a combined team of novice and experienced rowers. Some have rowed in high school, while others had a great deal less experience. Many had not picked up an oar until joining this team. The men ' s team competed in various categories based on boat size and experience. This year ' s experienced Men ' s Four qualified and raced in the National Rowing Championships on Philadelphia.

These hospitality majors, juniors and seniors, ve e recognized in this formal, ceremonial way, keeping in mind the air of lightheartedness which was purely evident because of the comedy injected into the evenings festivities. The organization numbered about 1 5 members, which made up nearly ten percent of the Business Department. HOSPITALITY AT ITS FINEST Once inducted into the organization, the members began their numerous tasks. A mandatory requirement of all members was attendance at the two day interviewing workshops given. These vorkshops entailed local general managers from restaurants and hotels giving practice interviews. These 30 minute interviews exposed the student to what one could expect when looking lor a job. These -workshops were very helplul to the students. Not only did they learn what to do and not to do, the managers who gave the practice interviews took time after the interview to discuss the student ' s strengths and what the student needed to work on in order to impress the person who could be their future employer. In November, the organization also traveled to New York City, N.Y., for the annual International Hotel Show. " There ' s a booth set up there to represent FSU, " organization sponsor Robert Brymer said. " There are always two or three students there at the booth where they can meet and greet alumni, keep them up on what the group is doing. They also meet and give information to students there who might attend FSU and they get to meet industry representatives who are there. " The members got the opportunity to meet industry representatives and could take advantage of getting to know what those businesses represented were for. Yet another opportunity that the member utilized was the experience gathered when they went to Atlanta, Georgia, and engaged in the Management Shadowing program. " It ' s just as it sounds, " Brymer said. " The student is assigned to a manager at the hotel and shadow them for the day, like a day in the life. " Members got the hands on experience about what a hotel manger ' s job entailed. Eta Sigma Delta was proud of the fact that they had nearly 100 percent job placement record.

Last April, a group of twenty students took advantage of one such opportunity when they caravaned to Atlanta to learn about various public relations careers and have some fun. The first stop on the schedule... Shoney ' s. According to vice president Jason Burke, " Everyone needed to get organized (and eat a big breakfast) before the long day of touring. " Next the students visited the Atlanta Braves stadium, where they met with the assistant director of PURSUING CAREERS public relations for the almost World Champions. They were given a tour of the press box and enjoyed learning about the sports related areas of public relations. " I am extrememly interested in the sports side of PR. It was interesting to learn about the difference in the job description when you are working for a winning team and when you ' re not, " April Melquist, a senior public relations major, said. After leaving the stadium, the students headed to the Peachtree Plaza for lunch with the public relations director for the Olympic Games. While the group savored a delicious meal, they learned some interesting facts about the Summer Games scheduled for 1996. He told an inspirational story about Atlanta ' s reaction to the announcement that they had been selected as the host. The last official stop was Fleishman Hillard, a PR firm that boasts Budweiser as one of their largest accounts. Here everyone had the opportunity to ask several questions and the most popular one seemed to be, " How do I get a job when I graduate? ' Other than asking questions, the students were sho vn around the office and learned more about hoNv an agency operates. The trip to Atlanta wasn ' t all work and no play. The group took advantage of some of Atlanta ' s favorite attractions such as Hard Rock Cafe, Macy s. Underground Atlanta, the night life at Buckhead and lots of other fun spots. All of these things, plus lots of walking, were part oif the weekend. Tim Smith was one student who took advantage of the various attractions Atlanta has to offer. He and some other students were pleasantly surprised when they met the actor Kevin Nealon during their night out on the town. As Tim put it, " the entire trip was an incredible, eye-opening experience to the opportunities in public relations. But, meeting Kevin Nealon was a big thrill!

Part of the success was attributed to the efforts ol the official recruitmg hostesses, the Garnet and Gold Girls. The Garnet and Gold Girls was a group of 44 female students who acted as the official recruiting hostesses for the Athletic Department. They dedicated their time and service in order to recruit student-athletes. While much of what they did was behind the scenes, this special attention did not go unnoticedd by the athletes they were recruiting, nor the athletic department that acted as their guidance. The Garnet and Gold Girls remained active GIVING IT THEIR ALL throughout the year, as their job did not begin or end on the football field. Responsibilities began with selection during the annual Spring membership drive. After being chosen out of the pool ol applicants, the girls began their challenge. The Summer was spent assisting with football camp. Media and Fan Appreciation Day and organizational activities preparing for the Fall rush of activities. When football season was in full swing, all Saturdays with home games were dedicated to the recruitment ol high school prospects. This included weekly meetings, festivities including tours, coaches ' meetings, highlight fiilms and speeches, along with various o ther activities appropriated by athletic department administration. Once the season was complete, the NCAA official recruiting period began. According to most of the girls, this vas the toughest and most time consuming part of the year. " I enjoyed meeting recruits and families from all over Florida and the country. It was time consuming but worth it. I definitely would do it again, " member Tammy Atmore said. Prospects were invited to a complimentary weekend stay in Tallahassee, which included tours, meetings with position coaches and academic advisors, a look at campus life and an occasional basketball game or dessert at Head Coach Bobby Bowden s home. The Garnet and Gold Girls were present at all events, and provided a helping hand to recruits and their families. The Garnet and Gold Girls also provided spirit to the football team itself. They did this through banners, posters, locker decorations, visits to injured players and their teammate program. The teammate program matched up each girl with two or three players. The girls decorated their lockers and provided birthday gifts as well as various other spirit boosters. This kept the girls active with the current players and enabled the players to continue their relationship with their recruiters. " The spirit committee certainly contributes to the football team in a special way. We provide a cheery atmosphere, " Spirit Committee Chairman Lisa Hardy said. The organization also assisted with the basketball recruiting program, the girls met the prospects for an occasional meal or a tour of the athletic facility " They are an essential part of the recruiting process. What they do is often underestimated, " Current Recruiting Coordinator Ronnie CottrellCottrell said.

The information which followed proved shocking. " One out ot every ten FSU students has condyloma, commonly known as genital warts. One out of every 87 FSU students has herpes. One out of every 50 students has the HIV virus, " continued Karlene Cole and Ross Davis, members of FSU Today. These statistics and dozens more were computed by the Thagard Student Health Center and reported by peer sex educators in campus presentations. PEER SEX EDUCATION Approximately 20 in all, these sex educators made up FSU Today, short for " For Sexual Understanding Today " and vere sponsored and trained by the campus student health center. Potential members were selected through an interview. Mary Penny, the Health Educator at Thagard and coordinator of FSU Today, stressed that speaking ability, theatrical ability and an openmindedness to sexual issues were desired qualities ot an FSU Today member. A counselor ' s role is to give information rather than opinions. It is essential that the member stay unbiased Four months of rigorous training were required before a member may participate in a public presentation. Meeting two hours weekly, FSU Today members role- played possible educator-patient scenarios and reviewed communication approaches. " Examining every angle is crucial in determining how information is perceived, " said Meredith McNeely, still in training with FSU Today. Each member was also responsible for researching one of the following subjects: condyloma, AIDS, abstinence, chlamydia, the pill, STD testing, herpes, gonorrhea, and proper condom usage. The information was organized into a formal report and distributed to all other members. " This way we all learn from one-another ' s hard work, " claimed Heather Griffin, also a new FSU Today member. After training the fun begins. Skits combined humor with answers to real-life situations. Performers acted out dates in w hich couples stumbled over the issue of whether of not to have sex. Myths were dispelled while view ers were entertained. Following the presentation the audience was asked to evaluate the performers. Comments were later reviewed and discussed. A doctor from the health center -was present at all times to answer any questions FSU Today members could not. Taking new steps in education and safety, FSU Today made an impact on college student ' s lives. Wrapping up the hour performance, one is reminded that " . . .FSU Today IS not here to encourage sex or abstinence, but to provide you with information to make educated decisions.

Last Spring, an anonymous graffiti artist spray-painted the letters " KKK " and a misspelled warning " Becalale " (Be careful) on the north wall of the engineering school building. The scribbled messages were just two- dimensional reminders of the problems that divided many engineer students. The vandalism occurred just a few hours after a meeting was held by the COE ' s Dean Ching-Jen Chen. The Dean met with students and discussed problems the students wanted to change, especially the low ratio of black professors to the slight majority of black students. Although the COE RACIAL TENSIONS FLAIR only had 40 percent from the predominantly black Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University students, blacks (including FSU students) comprised 46 percent of the student body as opposed to 45 percent of white students. The tensions were caused by the fact that only four black professors taught at the college and only 85 out of 795 bachelor ' s degrees vere awarded to blacks in the 1 Oyears the school had existed. " A lot of faculty members are unaware of how the things they do and say make minority students feel, " FAMU senior Simon Johnson said. " Students feel they came to FAMU to attend a Black college. But what has happened is they attend a college of engineering which is predominantly white and where most of the professors seem to have an allegiance to FSU, and they don ' t get the support they thought they would get. " " We are students at the FAMU FSU not FSU FAMU College of Engineering. This may seem trivial to many people at FSU, but it is a mistake made so many times by people who simply don t care enough to get it right, that we are sick and tired of it, " wrote FSU engineering students Shannon Estenoz and Jackie Breiter in a letter to the Flambeau. A protest rally brewed one day after the meeting ended in heated discussion and the graffiti, allegedly drawn by a white culprit, was cleaned of f of the wall. Paul Philpott, a white engineering student who helped organize the rally, wanted to put an end to the racial conflicts. " As long as FSU has something to do with the engineering school, Black students will never feel comfortable and they ' ll never graduate in appreciable numbers, " Philpott said. " White people already have two engineering schools in Florida and it ' s time Black people had one. " Others felt it was the faculty and administration, not their classmates, that caused the frustration and tension in the college. Even organizations within the college tried to handle the increased level of animosity with positive thinking. " We just want to have a unified college again, ' Institute for Industrial Engineers President Kit Kuhlman said. " The racial tension is not only hurting students, but their education as well.

IRHC had duel purposes. First, IRHC acted as a liaison between University Housing and the 14 residence hall governments. IRHCand the residence hall governments were like a wheel, with IRHC being the hub of the wheel and the 14 other hall governments connected to the hub acting as the spokes for the wheel. IRHC ' s liaison helped to coordinate programs and services in the various residence halls. The second purpose w as to provide programming and leadership opportunities lor the residence hall leaders. RESIDENCE LIVING MADE BETTER This was accomplished through the different programs that IRHC presents for all residents. These programs could have been in conjunction with a planned week on campus such as Alcohol Awareness Week or run during a conference lor all the hall leaders. IRHC along with University Housing and the residence hall leaders were successful in hosting the second annual conference for the Florida Association of Residence Halls (FARH). FARH was the state association of residence halls. It was comprised of different resident hall associations, such as the IRHC from the South Atlantic Region and the nation. The University was an affiliated, dues paying member of the Florida Association of University Residence Halls, and the National Association of College and University Residence Halls. Conferences such as FARH helped the development of residents whom attended through w orkshops. These workshops focused on a variety of issues including: leadership development, personal enhancement and program development. The residents who attended these conferences explored critical issues that were pertinent to their college and university campuses. These residents were enhanced personally and professionally. Also the residents met a number of other residents from different campuses around the country. Meeting new people provided opportunities to learn about each other and the various schools. FARH which was hosted on campus in the Spring consisted of several vorkshops on a variety of issues. Residents from across the state attended. The state Board of Directors conducted it ' s annual business meeting during the conference. The conference was ended with a dance presented by Inter-Residence Hall Council. The delegates of the conference enjoyed the entertainment. The experience gained by the conference and hosting the event has helped IRHC to be a continuing strong force in the region, state and nation.

The hottest programs were actually live or recreated police beats and educated millions on the field of criminology. But unlike the program " Cops, " University criminology students learned the value ot belonging to Lambda Alpha Epsilon, the only fraternal organization at the University dedicated to professionalism in the criminology field. Not only was the Lambda chapter of LAE the largest chapter with 147 members, but it was also named " Chapter of the Year " by its National Office at the Annual Conference in March. The Annual National Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, offered more than workshops and awards, it gave WATCHA GONNA DO, WHEN LAE COMES AFTER YOU? students the chance to use their training. They were judged on how well they transformed book work into real world in academics, pistol competitions, physical agility and crime scene investigation. The mock crime scenario depicted financial fraud and the Lambda chapter successfully determined a network analysis based on the income and outcome of the case. " It (the conference) is a special and unique thing, " sponsor Laura Nagy said. " It ' s the only organization I kno v of to have professionals and students working together in helping to stop crime. " The average police academy application has taken about eight months in the past to process and once in the program, connections and experienced backgrounds were essential to police training. LAE prepared students for the real vork of police officers and investigators through philanthropic service, competition in karate and pistol teams, fundraising and guest speakers with whom students made professional contacts and learned about actual experiences. " We ' ve got a really aggressive group involved in all aspects of criminology and criminal justice, " former LAE President Elizabeth Motto said. Aside from the victories won at the National Conference, the Lambda chapter took home 28 awards in the regional competition held last fall in Tallahassee and LAE ' s karate team raised the most money on campus of any Sports Club Council organization for the March of Dimes. " It enhanced our relationships with other p rofessional organizations... I learned a lot of how to be a team member and work together as you -would in the field. It vas a great experience for me, " former Sergeant-at-Arms Ken Koehler said.

At the national competition held in Arlington, Texas, 29 teams from 30 states participated. The University ' s team lost in the final round on a fourth redecision. " It couldn ' t have been any closer, " James Brey, director of the speech and debate team, said. In August 1990, Brey became the director of the small and young debate team with a room, two coaches and two debaters. The squad has grown to include nine debate teams and 12 people who competed in individual events. DEBATING DUKE FOR THE TITLE The team has also grown in status. The squad was ranked 23rd and had not been that high ranking since April 1986. At a prestigious Round Robin invitational in St. Louis, Missouri, the top eight teams in the nation received an invitation. This university received two of these invitations. One of the factors responsible for the team ' s success was the support from the debate alumni, Forensics department, administration and the Student Government Association. Brey stated that the support was overwhelming. The coaching staff was also a factor for success. There were seven coaches who did a vast majority of the hands on coaching. Many of the coaches came into the College of Communications for their Master ' s degree or doctorate. These diverse graduate students were responsible for their ow n studies, coaching and traveling on the weekends to tournaments. The main component in the program ' s success involved the student members. Their attention to the activity combined with their desire to seek out members of the coaching staff to work with them earned this team its admirable reputation. In preparation for debate topics, each member compiled enough information to equal two term papers each week. Top debaters such as Jay Kanell, team captain, averaged two and a half to three term papers a w eek. Despite their overwhelming success, the debate team maintained a sense of modesty. While the team was known for its credibility it was also noted for its professionalism. " My kids are very professional and very kind and that ' s a nice reflection on the university. It ' s not a nice activity. It ' s very competitive in nature, " Brey said. Fellow students were equally impressed with the team ' s success and each member ' s accomplishments. " They are hardworking and dedicated, real student role models. They also give the college a good name, " junior Miguel Fernandez said. James Brey worked hard to have a nationally recognized program and debate team . He said that at times he felt like a parent — very proud and protective.

The Student Alumni Association enjoy meeting each other at the " New Member Reception " in the fall. 226 Organizations Campus, 347 acres of red, brick Gothic structures amidst hovering oaks, housed not only lecture halls, but memories of outstanding alumni. Since 1909 the Alumni Association, the communications link between alumni and the growing university, was responsible for strengthening the Seminole community. Through the Seminole Club network, alumni tours, away-game receptions, Alumni Spring Weekend and the alumni state magazine, we of Florida State were assured that its influence was not a passing one. " The Alumni Association is a records-keeping and a friends-making volunteer group, " said Betty Lou Joanos, Associate Director of the Alumni Association and former LOOKING BACK TO LOOK AHEAD National Chairman. A walking encyclopedia of tales, Joanos, with fondness, spoke of the deans, governors and alumni after which the buildings were named. While keeping one foot in the door of the future, the university was solidly grounded in history. " The most cherished of the alumni, " explained Joanos, " were the graduates of the Florida State College for Women. " Time spent with these women was highly entertaining as they vividly recalled Dr. Katherine W. Mont gomery, after whom Montgomery Gym was named, and other FSU contributors. The Florida State College for Women was a highly recognized academic institution. " Dr. Montgomery was a woman ahead of her time. " said Joanos. Montgomery felt one ' s physical health was important and required one hour of strenuous daily exercise from her students. As a result, Florida State became recognized not only for its academics, but for its competitive athletic leagues. Every spring the Alumni Association honors its fifty-year graduates, honorary members of the Emitris Club. Working closely with Seminole Boosters, the Student Alumni Association and the FSU Foundation, the Alumni Association supported a database system of more than 180,000 graduates and friends. Alumni showed their gratitude by becoming members of local Seminole Clubs.

Among these have been General Norma Bro vn, the first woman Air Force general, Dr. Raul Guzman, Director of Exiucation for the Philippines and Davis Gaines, the present Phantom oi Phantom of the Opera in California. " Working closely with all aspects of the university, the Alumni Association has strong leadership in administration ' s decision making process, " said Joanos.

Formed in 1988, the modeling troupe provided its members with more than a tew tashion tips. " We hold workshops on posture, poise and etiquette. We teach things that carry over to other aspects of life. For instance, in a job interview if you are slouched over in your chair, that sends a negative message to the STRIKE A POSE potential employer. In Elite, you learn how to walk, keep your back straight and to exude confidence, " President Felicia Brunson said. The Elite Modeling Troupe put on one major fashion show during the Fall semester and performed several smaller shows throughout the Spring and Summer. " The Spring and Summer semesters go by so fast that we don ' t have time to comprise a major show. However, we did perform little fashion shows for the grand opening of Governor ' s Square Mall, the Caribbean Student Association and the Alpha Phi Alpha Talent Show, " Brunson said. Elite received its clothing from local retail stores. The clothing A as not theirs to keep but if they wanted to purchase it they received a 20 to 25% discount. However, Brunson wanted to expand Elite past the Tallahassee city limits. " One project w e are working on now is to get together with the different modeling troupes from colleges in the South to form a universal modeling troupe that performs fashion shows at different schools, " Brunson said. Elite held tryouts every Fall semester. They consisted of interviews and the workshops. Those who possessed the necessary qualities were asked to join this prestigious group. This modeling troupe was not all glitz and glamour as discipline and dedication were tw o qualities that Elite looked for in potential members. " Physically, we take a wide range of people. But mostly we look for people who are open to criticism. Also, you have to maintain a certain weight.

Along with this requirement was a mandatory two week training process for all members. They put out an annual publication. Ebon Wing,). Local companies help by specking at meetings. The Tarpon Club w as one of the oldest student organizations. Organized as the Lifesaving Corps in 1932 by FSCW lifesaving students, the club adopted the Tarpon name in 1936. 57 years later Tarpon Club is the oldest continuously active collegiate synchronized swimming team in the nation. As sport club participants Tarpon members compete in U.S. Synchronized Swimming intercollegiate competition. In addition the annual Tarpon Homeshow was a blend of aquatic artistry featuring graceful athletics, aquatic choreography, colorful costumes and theatrical lighting.

At that time the focus was safety. What began as an athletic event became a water art. The tarpons were the oldest continuing synchronized swimming club in the nation and one of the founders of the National Institute for Creative Aquatics remained an intricate part of creative s ' wimming. " We have always been focused on the art rather than th e sport of synchronized swimming, " Alicia Crew, coach for the Tarpons, said. SENSATIONAL SWIMMING Funded by student government to perform a home show in the Spring, more funding was needed to be a competitive league. During the 1940s through the 1950s synchronized swimming started as the American Amateur Union. The tradition continued throughout the 1960s and early 1970s as the International Academy of Aquatic Art. Interested in preserving synchronized swimming as a creative outlet, FSU helped found the national Institute for Creative Aquatics. When the organization folded in 1989, the only remaining outlet for non-competitive groups was U.S. Synchro. Allegra Whitney, a past Tarpon member, explained the process of becoming an honorary tarpon. During the first year of swimming with the tarpons, one was assigned meno ranking. After the first Spring Home Show and an initiation ceremony, one was an official tarpon. " I ve always wanted to be a dancer and I ve been a competitive swimmer, " Whitney said. " The tarpons are a cool combination! " Practice was two nights a week for for tarpons and three nights a week for menos. Choreography was left up to the members and anyone was free to participate. All pieces, from pop to Beethoven were rehearsed and performed at the Home Show. The long rehearsals were needed due to the strength required to perform in the water. Eggbeaters, a rotation done with the legs, allowed the swimmer to sit upright in the water and to use the arms for ballet motions. When hands were underwater, they were used to propel the body. The Windmill or Sculling, performed with he hands, changed the body ' s direction in a graceful fashion. When underwater, goggles and underw ater speakers were used to rehearse the routine. When the goggles were removed for performances, the underwater speakers kept the swimmers impressively synchronized. The dedication of the tarpons went beyond their obvious dexterity in the water. Sets and suits, though partially provided by Student Government, were provided by the members. Besides being a physical outlet, the Tarpon club opened up creative and leadership outlets appreciated by its members.

It conducted mock trials and gave law students an opportunity to experience courtroom procedure. Moot Court was extremely selective in its membership. Ol the 132 applicants, only 14 were chosen to become part of the group. Membership was open to hrst year second semester and second year law students. Competition was divided into mock trial and appellate court categories. The mock trial division entailed participants conducting fictitious trials in the presence of judges. Roles were enacted in a realistic fashion and participants were scaled accordingly. In the appellate court division, members enacted the roles of those in district and supreme court hearings. The cases tried involved a comprehensive understanding of the different areas of law. The diverse exposure ot the various facets ot law practice gave Moot Court members a more well-rounded COMPETITION SOARS IN COURTROOM education concerning law procedures. Having learned to apply the ■written text to verbal arguments gave the select fourteen an edge over those denied of the opportunity to refine courtroom presentation skills. " The cases involved criminal, constitutional, patent, entertainment and security law. We cover everything, " Barbara Smith, president of Moot Court, said. Participants were judged based upon the coherence of their legal arguments, their presentation skills and their ability to answer judges ' questions accurately and with confidence. Extemporaneous responses demanded strategic thinking, impossible to be fully developed outside of the courtroom. In the most recent competition, the organization received first place at state level. Moot Court ' s snowballed success resulted in a first place ranking at national level. Awarded best brief and best oralist, the team wound up the season with a tremendous payoff for their hard work and polished style. " It ' s a wonderful experience. It gets you thinking on your feet, " Smith said.

Then the cabinet resignations were turned in from every direction and interpersonal conflicts came between the legislative and executive branches. The Student Government Association faced criticisms of mismanagement and political bickering that began to divide the campus into vicious partisan camps and surrender student monies to pay for it. SGA President Jeanne Belin appointed Sean Sullivan, a member of the Monarchy Party, to the unpaid position of deputy assistant to the president for public relations near the beginning of her candidacy. Sullivan POLITICS GONE SOUR was rejected by the Senate for the paid position of director of public relations based on his character and previous record. Instead of filling the director position, Belin let Sullivan handle all SGA advertisements which gave him the duties of director, but unofficially. Sullivan managed to spend $27,711.95 between the months of July and December. The annual budget for advertising was only $30,000 which forced Belin to take responsibility and ask Senate to allocate $10,000 from the senate projects budget to cover Spring advertisement costs. " Without advertising dollars we cannot operate student government at all, " senate president pro tem Jon Snell said. It-was then Senate ' s turn toslapthe wrists of Belin and those who did not heed their advice. They voted against the allocation but granted $1200 to continue advertising until the mismanaged funds could be investigated by the judicial branch. " It ' s my responsibility, " Belin said. " If they want to waste their time investigating, they ' re more than welcome to. " Some student senators, however, felt the responsibility landed on Sullivan ' s lack of fund management. " He was the one making the decisions, " Snell said. " He was the one running the ads. " But Sullivan believed he was just doing his job and said he only ran ads that publicized important events. " Whatever the Cabinet decides to advertise, gets advertised. I ' m the first person to do that statutory job correctly, " Sullivan said. Others still blamed Belin and admitted the students footed the bill for a deficit made in the middle of the year. " I think the whole situation is a shame and I think the students are going to end up paying for it, literally. Senate has no choice, " student senator Wendy Stephen said. (continued on page 236) BY ALICIA HARBOUR United Latin Society 235 Cabinet ( continued from page 235) Resignations in Belin ' s Cabinet were also hard to manage as seven members stepped down from their positions tor various reasons. Four resignations occurred before Winter Break and in February, legislative relations director Terry Clark and management and budget director Corey King resigned amidst political differences with their positions and the administration. " Sh e (Belin) didn ' t like the way I vvas representing her in the senate, " Clark said. " She thought I was too pro- senate and she didn ' t feel like I w as a Cabinet team player. " King, on the other hand, resigned after he was criticized for his failure to turn in budget requests on time which led to budget delays for campus organizations. He defended his criticized performance with a student first, director second attitude and said he had little time and no instruction when he tried to complete the request forms. " A week is unrealistic for students, " King said. " I ' m a student and I don t sit in my office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. I have classes. " Upon resignation, he said, " I think there comes a time in a student ' s career vhen he has to move on. " In March, another cabinet member leh her post because of personal discrepancies with Jeanne Belin. Carrie Ann Pollock, director of special projects, said Belin ' s attitude toward her changed when she changed political parties. " I find that many things which were once so familiar have drastically changed. Strong and dear alliances have sadly regressed from those of camaraderie and unity to those of spite and ostracism, " Pollock said. Friction among political ambition-mongers was cited by many as the reason for the rampant resignations and miscommunication within SGA. King said, " There are a lot of partisan politics going on and students are looking for reasons to lash-out at each other and I don ' t think that provides a very positive environment for students to grow.

Once a candidate had been interviewed by the E A Committee, he or she was presented before the entire senate along wth a synopsis of the interview and the committee ' s recommendation as to the candidate ' s appointment. Any issues surrounding SGA elections were also brought before the E A Committee, especially those dealing with the Ejection Code. nciary The Judiciary Com.mittee dealt primarily with the revisions and the amendments to the Student Body Constitution and Statutes of the student government association. The committee also kept track of senators absences and presence at the senate meetings that were Committee held in chambers.

The LCC was instrumental in organizing Lobby Day which allowed 1 other members of Sudent Government Association to meet their State Senators and Representatives. The Legislative Concerns Committee was its busiest during the spring semester when the legislature was in session. The Services and Academics (S A) Committee dealt mainly with the evaluation and proposed improvement of existing offerings by Student Government. The Service and Academics Committee also offered new program ideas. They brought new programs proposals to Senate to be voted on and to passed. This enabled the University to have such events as the Inauguration Party, this was sponsored by the Student Government Association. Ideas for programs started in the S A Conxmittee.

The HatFields versus the McCoys. These quintessential battles were compared to that of the graduate students versus the undergraduate students in the battle lor control over Activity and Service fee money. The two forces clashed over the issue of who should control the graduate students ' contribution to A S fees. Comprising over 20% of the student body, the graduate students contributed over $1.1 million to the almost $5 million annual A S fee budget. The budget was annually allocated by Student GRADUATE STUDENTS GOVERN THEIR OWN Government Association to its various agencies and bureaus. Student Government was traditionally controlled by undergraduates, with graduate students occasionally occupying a few student senate seats and maybe a cabinet position. Graduate students claimed that the undergraduate- dominated student government was unresponsive to their needs and proposed a separation of graduate students from the current SGA. " If we don ' t separate, then student government won ' t look at our concerns, " history department graduate student Anne Holt said. Before the proposed separation. Graduate Students United was the only agency dedicated exclusively to graduate students ' needs. GSU ' s Board of Directors was elected in the Fall solely by fellow graduate students. GSU ' s A S funding was approximately $30,000 annually, a far cry from the $1.1 million that they contributed to the $5 million budget. This proved to be a major reason for the proposed secession. " It i s important that we declare ourselves autonomous, " GSU member David Stern said. The ashes of those problems arose a phoenix, a task force created with the help of the Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Jon Dalton. The Committee on Graduate Students Concerns was designed to address the concerns of the graduate students. Its creation came after the first of two constitutional conventions in ■which graduate students convened to formulate and ratify a constitution and to declare their independence from the SGA. At the first convention, there w as much confusion and secession was not the unanimous solution.

Photo by Steve Stiber. 240 Organizations Continued (from page 239) Student Senate President Jennifer Tankersley attended the convention to lobby delegates against the proposed separation. One major problem admitted by the graduate students and evident at the convention was the lack of time they had for such extra-curricular activities as Student Government. " We are to blame. Graduate students never show up lor anything. We just have too many other responsibilities, " Jett Neuman said. The second convention brought progress and a compromise. The Congress ol Graduate Students ■was formed and its constitution ratified. Under the SGA proposal, COGS would operate as an agency with an annual budget ol 11% ol what graduate students contribute overall in A S lees. In addition, a separate division of senators was created in the Student Senate comprised only ol graduate students and known as the Graduate Studies division. Under this division there was one graduate senator lor every 499 graduate students. Both sides seemed to be pleased with this proposal and alter countless hours of deliberation, it was finally accepted. " Our motto is ' Unity through diversity, ' and I believe this proposal recognizes the graduate students as a distinct entity while keeping the entire student government together, " Belin said. " All this IS certainly prool that we do have a lot ol muscle and people are finally listening to us, " Holt said. Upon reaching this compromise, COGS was appropriated $75,000 in the 1993- 94 fiscal year budget to get their government started and plans were underway to renovate one ol the old Iraternity houses oil of Wildwood Drive to serve as olfices. The realignment of the student senate was also due to take ellect with the beginning ol the new school year in the Fall. Senate Leadership Senate was a composed of the daily governmental needs of the students body as providing well as the well-being of the University.

What was the special occasion? You were trying for a " new look " for those annual yearbook portraits. You vanted to lookyour best because the proofs were sent home for mom and dad to see. They chose the portrait which would appear in the yearbook. Many students hated the thought of having to smile for the camera, year in and year out. As new faces moved into the university community, old faces moved on to the working world. With those new people came new ideas and solutions to problems. The university was supported and controlled by people. They kept it alive and functioning. Students had the power to state their opinions and make the campus into what they wanted. The school revolved around its people and their attitudes. With people from every culture and background, approximately 29,000 students made the university a diverse community. The opportunities were endless to meet new people, make unique friends, and share multi-cultural experiences. With help from each other, we were able to take a new look at each individual.

He was a daring and courageous football player and a happy person to be around. We ' ll miss him. " Miller ' s career at FSU began when he accepted a football scholarship here. He made an impact in 1972 as a running back, sustaining many injuries that sidelined his career. When he was moved to the position ol linebacker. Miller ran headlong into a ball carrier, received a serious concussion and was asked to give up his football career. " Fred never gave up. He went out for cheerleading, made head cheerleader and has been The Head ' cheerleader ever since, " said longtime friend Andy Miller.

It was a restaurant Seminoles could count on when they came to watch a game on a big screen television in an atmosphere ol fun and tradition. However, the Mecca tradition ended after AA years of " goodtime " food and less than ayear after the newly-designed Mecca Grill w as born. The Mecca was originally a ' 50 ' s diner run by two brothers, Gene and Clyde Blount, who bought the Mecca in the ' 70 ' s and sold it in the ' 80 ' s. Years later, plans started forming to create a ' 90 ' s version of the Mecca which would provide customers with good service, healthier food and alcoholic beverages. The Mecca Grill, as it The emptiness of the res- was renamed, was taurant shows the unfor- transformed from tunate closing of The a greasy spoon Mecc a Grill. cafeteria into a checkered-tablecloth restaurant that ended up losing more money than it could afford to stay in business. " I loved it here and I tried to make it work, " Mecca manager and part-owner David Maluff said. " I thought it would stay here a long time. " Maluff and partners decided to close the restaurant at the end of December, after losing $300,000, almost twice the amount they invested to create it. Maluff believed the Mecca Grill failed because the lunch crowd was unable to compensate for the losses in evening sales. The students, as well as the owners, were sad to see the campus eating place go. " It ' s a shame it had to close, " student Rich Hernandez said.

Ames, a charter member of Sigma Sigma Sigma, wore many hats in a single day. In addition to being a full time student, this junior communication major was a disc jockey on WFHT Hot 10L5. " I used to work the late night shift; however, I just got promoted to the weekend shift from 2:00 to 6:00pm, " Ames said. Ames used the name Sandy " Stone " on the air. She also had an internship at the station in advertising sales and promotions. While she loved selling and the radio business, she did not plan on stopping there. " I could never do the same thing everyday. It ' s )ust not me. I have an idea for my own business and one day I plan to make it happen, " Ames said. Making things happen seemed to come easy for this lady. Last summer she worked for a carnival and made lots of cash. " They (the carnival) had a game that was the lowest grossing game in the entire fair. They were going to get rid ol it but they put me on this game to see how it would work with someone like me running it. Within one weekend I out-grossed the entire lair, " Ames said. Ames ' accomplishments did not stop there. She held the ofhce of sisterhood chairperson for her sorority. She also received a sorority scholarship ring for earning a 4.0 GPA tor two consecutive semesters and has been on the dean ' s list since she arrived at the University. Ames also belonged to organizations such as The Regional Student Leadership Counsel, GAMMA and Golden Key National Honor Society. She has actively taken part in Golden Key ' s " Just Say No " speech campaign and has helped with anti- drug presentations at various middle schools in Leon County. " You can ' t live life being scared because that ' s not really living, " Ames said. Despite her achievements, Ames maintained a level head. She credited her humbleness to working with the carnival. " At the carnival you get dirt under your fingernails and you don ' t get a chance to take a shower. People would treat you differently. I learned to accept people and things for what they are, " Ames said. Ames would be the first to admit that there was still room for growth in the future.

But now it had happened and the damage was done. You were walking through the mall minding your own business when you had passed by the store window and there had been the one piece of clothing you needed more than anything but how to pay tor it was the question. Betoreyou knew ityou were at the counter ready to pay and all you had to do was pull outyour credit card. But wait, was this piece ol plastic Iriend or foe? For many students credit cards were a great ■way to buy because ol the pay later " terms of the card, but could the credit card become a problem later? Yes, it would. With annual interest rates varying with each card, students often paid more than they had expected or had the money to pay with. " I was shocked to find out how much my bills were for the month and also how many cards I had, " senior Misty Farro " w said. Many students did not realize the impact of having more than one or two credit cards. Some had Visa, Master Card or Discover with annual interest rates of around 14% for students with little or no credit history. " It ' s too easy charge, I don ' t realize all the damage I ' m doing to my bank account until I get my Visa bill, " Catherine Wright said. The credit card and all of its privileges may have been appealing to some shoppers, but for others it was something to stay away from completely. " I just don ' t own a credit card, it ' s that simple, " Laura Webb said. Staying away from the magnetic piece of plastic w as hard, but for those vho remembered that awful day when they opened their mailbox and pulled out the Visa or Master Card bill for two times the amount they had in their checking account and the phone call they had to make to mom, they pulled that card out of their wallet and walking by the same store window tossed that card in the trash can.

Since then, recycling stations had been placed at all the major academic buildings. Dumpsters were placed between Smith and Salley Halls, behind Dorman and Devinney Halls and at Degralt Hall which served its residents and nearby traternities. Recycling stations were placed at each ol the scholarship houses and several Greek houses received recycling dumpsters from the city. For students, recycling accommodations had been made for glass, aluminum, and new spapers. For University employees, accomodations had been made for cardboard and mixed office paper. With this intense recycling movement, the University had no problem living up to a Florida state mandate that made government and public agencies recycle at least 30 percent ol their garbage by 1994. Unfortunately, the movement had to overcome a variety of obstacles. Recycling bins which were placed along campus walkways were used for garbage by the students. These boxes were eventually removed altogether until something better could be done. Fraternities and sororities which tried to obtain dumpsters from the city could not get them because the city distributed all that they had to apartment complexes, the University and private dormitories. " All of our ' mixed recyclables ' dumpsters were given out to the apartment complexes in the area. We won ' t be able to have anymore built until next Fall , " Richard Gunnels, Coordinator for the City of Tallahassee Recycling, said. A committee was formed to lobby the University into allocating more funds and resources for its recycling program. Two different groups of students, as part of class projects, organized ongoing statistical surveys and questionnaires to encourage students to recycle. The Department of Psychology monitored the effects of placing the actual types of items to recycle over each of their respective bins, with the premise of prompting people to take action by causing people to realize the products they recycled. " If the option is there, I will recycle. Fm sure there are many tactful ways to remedy the recycling problems on campus. I think it ' s come to, and should be, a matter of moral judgment to recycle, " Chris Stringer, Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity member said.

" I can learn from my students and they can learn from me, " Jarmon said. Numerous honors have been bestowed upon Jarmon, such as 1986 Academic All American, 1992 Outstanding Adult Learner, an induction to the Job Corps Hall of Fame and an appointment as Assistant Professor of the School of Social Work. At age 14, Jarmon had her first child aftergetting kicked out ol school . At 16, she had her second child and recalled her parents making it clear that her children were her responsibility. Near age 18, she decided not to spend the rest of her life pulling out chicken guts, which happened to be her occupation at the time. Jarmon received her GED and took a secretarial position at Delaware State College in 1970. Jarmon took advantage of the two free classes each semester that came with her job. She acquired enough hours to earn her Associate of Arts in 1981. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Science and Business Administration with a minor in accounting in 1982. After 19 years of night school, she became Dr. Jarmon through the Florida Endowment Fund. She started her dissertation called " Targeting the ' Real ' Economic Cost of Teen Pregnancy: A Skill Building Approach for Early Adolescence. " The research addressed improving early adolescence by problem solving decision making skills related to peer pressure. Skipping school, drug and alcohol abuse, and early sexual involvement were problems she targeted by building self esteem and internal focus of control. In the long run, Jarmon wanted to use the model to enhance the school system and offer classes to young students. Jarmon said there also must be an reeducation of parents . Jarmon ' s goal was to teach adolescents how to think, not what to think. " Everyone needs encouragement or a pat on the back once in awhile, many kids don ' t get that. If I reach just one child, then my life has not been in vain, " Jarmon said.

On Dec. 30, Charles Franklin walked into V-89 and began destroying over $12,000 worth ot radio equipment. Franklin was arrested and later released after a psychiatric evaluation. According to Aimee Scally, public relations director and announcer at the station, Franklin w alked into the control booth, told the disc jockeys he was an engineer and began bashing reel to reels, CD players, carts and other radio equipment with a metal bar. He leh a large dent in the main control board. The damage left the station in a financial bind, considering the university had no funds to give them. However, what the university could not provide the community could. Local clubs such as Yianni ' s, The Grand Finale and The Main Event raised over $5,000 for the station. Many bands performed for free in order to get the station back on its teet. Some of the bands that performed for the fundraiser were Shatterposts, Gruel, and Insect Fear. Although the station was far from reaching its goal, everyone at the station seemed to be pleased by the amount of support they received from the community. With a somewhat functioning console V-89 was still committed to being the " Voice of Florida State. " Students announce the next group during the fundraising drive for V89. Photo by Steve Stiber.

Appointed by Governor Lawton Chiles, Pittman served as the single student regent representing 187,000 students from the state ' s nine universities. Through this appointment, the governor hoped to work on increasing access to Florida ' s colleges and universities. Regarding his responsibilities, Pittman said they were the same as the other regents, with one exception. " I have added responsibilities being accountable to the 187,000 students in the system, " Pittman said. He hoped to provide leadership on the board concerning critical issues affecting students in the system. His appointment especially a ffected his school. " Each university pushes its students to apply for the position. Administrators lobby for their students. I believe my position will allow me to be a good representative, " Pittman said. As for experience leading up to this position, Pittman was well-qualified. Alter serving in the student senate his freshman and sophomore years, he went on to be elected vice president and president of the student body. Upon graduation in 1990, Pittman was chairman of the Florida Student Association for two years and executive director for one. This role allowed him to work directly with the Board of Regents. Since August 1991, Pittman had worked as a supervisor at the Leach Center. He was also selected as the Florida regional director for the National Black Law Student Association and completed a law internship for the Florida House of Representatives. ' Sean Pittman is one of the most experienced and concerned student regents I ' ve ever w orked with. The students can be truly assured that their future this year is in the most capable of hands, " Pieter Swart, Director of Governmental Relations of the FSA said.

These were components of the perennial all nighters commonly pulled by college students everywhere. Whether it was a lack of preparation or just trying to get in all of the extra studying possible, students often went sleepless in order to prepare for an exam. " I wake up early, get a bunch of candy and bottled water and stay in the library until my test, " Erika Grant said. " I wait until the last minute so it will be Iresh in my mind. " Some students believed in studying early and getting their beauty sleep. " I figure if it ' s 1:00 a.m. and I haven ' t finished, I ' m not going to learn it, so I just go to bed, " early childhood education major Terri Tindall said. ' I ' d rather go to bed and get up early. " Students often did not intend to wait until the last minute, sometimes they just got bogged down with other responsibilities such as work or extracurricular activities. " I need my sleep. I ' ve only slept about five hours each night because everything seems to pile on top of each other, " senior Mark Brenneman said. " There ' s test after project after test. As soon as I start to recover, it seems to start all over again. " Staying up all night to finish studying for a test or a big project seemed to be a trend for most students. Photo by John Caw ley.

A deep, peaceful sleep at last. All of a sudden it came. THE SOUND. The shrill of the fire alarm ran through the halls as my roommate and I dreamily wandered out of our room and outside into the bitter cold night. Gradually, I focused in on my surroundings and I realized that I was standing in the middle of a parking lot with several hundred people in my pajamas. I had forgotten to grab the robe, vhich I had strategically placed by the door, as I left. However, I wasn ' t the only half dressed fool by the roadside. Girls in nightgowns and guys in boxer shorts sat impatiently waiting for the fire engines to arrive, while people drove by laughing. I ' ll give them something to laugh about I thought to myself. I bet they wouldn ' t like it very much if they were in my slippers. I wish I had been prepared like some others. Equipped with pillows, blankets and teddy bears, some of my fellow dormmates formed a circle and sang camp songs and told jokes. I ' m glad someone could see the humor in all of this. It seemed as though that stupid alarm went off just when my head hit the pillow. It ' s not as though I got enough sleep as it was, but to stand outside for 45 minutes in subarctic degree temperatures for " precautionary reasons " was a bit ridiculous. Almost on cue, the fire trucks came to a screeching halt and little men in bright yellow outfits raced into the building. They inspected each floor and as I had anticipated, found nothing. Typical. Oh well, at least we were safe. We wandered back to our rooms and as I closed the door, I thought to myself was what I really wanted to do was strangle the person who pulled the alarm. Fire trucks race to the scene of an alleged fire. Pranks by students led to dicomfort for many. Photo by Robert Parker. B y A m y Shi n n ' kt- McCarron, Matthew (SR) Ft.

As theyears dragged on, a final decision had to be made. For some this was a realization, for others, those who were affectionately referred to as " career students, " it was even an afterthought. College majors were a fickle subject for many. A major was changed by someone, at some school, every day of the year. For some, interest just changed from one subject to another. " My original major was Business Management, but after taking a few classes, I became bored with it. I realized that I could never make it my life ' s work. Now I ' m an English major and I m much happier.. .for now, " sophomore Melissa Walters said. Others switched for academic reasons and had no other choice because their grade poi nt average had deteriorated so they w ere limited to majors with no GPA restrictions. " I was a pre-med major but at the time I was undisciplined and didn ' t take my studies seriously. After a while my grades were not good enough to stay in the major, " nursing major Michelle David said. In some cases, students took prerequisite classes for intended majors and did poorly, which prevented entry into the major. Many found themselves left with useless credits once their major changed or were left with the option of only receiving a minor in the field. " When I arrived at college I was determined to get my degree in biology so that I could go on to medical school. By the end of my sophomore year I was well on my way having accumulated many credits in the major. At the beginning of my junioryear my interests and career goals changed radically and I changed to anthropology and chose to minor in biology instead, " junior Melissa Ferguson said. Many schools placed restrictions on registration, limiting it to only those who declared their major to be in that college or school. The restrictions prevented others from filling up classes and prolonged graduation times. As there were for every rule, there existed exceptions to this one. Although many changed their majors, some had set career goals and stuck with their original major. " I ' ve known that I ' ve wanted to teach since eighth grade.

From as lew as ten to as many as hundreds of students applied for and eventually took them. They vere internships. The purpose of internships were to gain valuable experience through hands-on training. The internships paid anywhere from nothing to minimum wage or a small stipend to a semester ' s tuition. Still, students held the internship program high on their list gaining experience needed tor future careers. It also opened the door for future employment with those particular agencies. Two of the internship programs which had high participation was the Eklucation and Criminology departments. " The internships are generally taken during the last year ol the student ' s academic career. That way they don ' t have to come back to take any classes, " Dr. Patricia Green-Powell said. The educational program included between 600 and 700 participants during fall and spring semesters. The sites were outside of the Tallahassee area, a condition of the internship program. The length of the program varied. " The minimum a student can take is ten weeks, " Green- Powell said. Another internship program that received many participants was in the Criminology department. Those who opted for an internship totaled 185 for the summer term alone. These students were part ol the largest program in the country. Students received jobs throughout the state of Florida and had the opportunity to travel overseas. Lorene Nagy had the opportunity to w ork in London. " That ' s where our program differs from other programs. Students can apply what they learn to the real world what was learned in the classroom , " Nagy said.

No, it was not a mathematical derivative from physics class. It was the blood alcohol content of a Kappa Alpha pledge after a party at the fraternity ' s house. He was discovered lying on a couch in the house basement turning blue. According to paramedics he was very near death. A sober brother cleared a vad of chewing tobacco which had blocked the his airway and then administered C.P.R., almost assuredly saving his life. This prompted the suspension of Kappa Alpha for two years as -well as all fraternity pledging activities pending further investigation. Days later a new alcohol policy was introduced to campus. The new policy, penned mainly by Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Jon Dalton, took a very hard-lined approach to the ethical issues relating to the consumption of alcohol. It emphasized education and alternatives to alcohol and stipulated that non-alcoholic beverages must be served simultaneously at University sponsored events. Every aspect of the new policy resounded the need for alternatives and there were strict constraints put on the length of time that alcohol could be served at University sponsored events. It also recognized the need for those abusing alcohol to seek counseling, whether it be a student or faculty member. The policy subjected offenders to disciplinary action by the University. " I think that everyone is responsible for their actions and should be punished accordingly if they go too far. I agree with it 100 percent, " sophomore Kevin Donahue said. Others were not as receptive. Reaction from the Greek community was mixed because the policy infringed upon some of their philanthropic events held at local bars and night clubs. The policy strictly prohibited enticement to events by offering alcohol. " I ' m pleased with the policy itself, it ' s very thorough. The alcohol policy from my sorority ' s national office is more harsh than the University ' s. The only problem I have is the addendum to it requiring all Greeks to inform the administration where and when we are having an event so that they can ' drop by and observe ' as they ' ve said, " Panhellenic President Julie Dunn said. The policy did not stipulate that students would be subjected to disciplinary action by their peers in the Student Supreme Court. Instead, it said that anyone abusing the policy would be subject to " University disciplinary action. " " I agree with the general intent of the policy, not the way it came about. I have no problem working with the administration to iron out these differences and would be happy to do so, Student Senate President Jennifer Tankersley said.

Tonight, as ■we ring these bells, it is our hope to change that perception, " University law student Tracy Newman said. This was the message delivered to President-elect Bill Clinton on behalf of the nation ' s college students. Newman was one of four National Student Directors for the Belb for Hope: Uniting America Campiuiej events taking place locally on the Union Green. Each of the four National Student Directors attended universities vithin the State University System. Clinton held a special place in his heart for Florida since he had such a strong base of support spearheaded by Lieutenant Governor Buddy McKay, the Florida chairman of the Clinton campaign. Picture-perfect skies and balmy temperatures set the mood for the estimated 1500 students who enjoyed such local talent as Bill Wharton and the Ingredients, the Shatterposts and the Woodpeckers. Free refreshments donated by local companies were served by volunteers from the Student Senate. The event also served as a fundraiser for V-89, the University ' s radio station, w hich had been the target of vandalism. From Tallahassee to Topeka, Wyoming to Washington D.C., the events surrounding the kick-off of four days of inaugural festivities were wide in variety. They ranged from ice cream socials to day- long concerts, not unlike the ones held on the Mall in Washington D.C. The day s climax came locally at 6:00 p.m. when University President Dale Lick was joined on stage by prominent campus leaders in the ringing of a historic bell. The bell was used over 80 years ago to summon students to meals at the Florida State College for Women, the University ' s institutional predecessor. Simultaneously, bells were rung by students at hundreds of college campuses around the country, by U.S. Ambassadors at embassies around the world, by astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Endem ' or and by the new first and second families in the nation ' s d ' - • ' capital. The message resounding in the bells ' m ' chimes w as that of hope and unity which was J - exemplified by Republican leadership participating alongside the new Democratic president-elect in the day ' s festivities.

No! You cannot paintyour room black! Forthelast time, no posters on the walls! " Mom yelled. For those who lived by these restrictions, decorating a dorm room served as a pleasurable rebellion. No one, except one ' s roommate, could complain about the new Guns ' n Roses poster, the black comforter complete with zebra sheets or the pile of dirty laundry tucked neatly away under the bed. " The quality of dorm life is what you make it, " Kersten Cortes, former Deviney resident said, " So dress it up! " The first step in the dorm room transformation process was to make a trip to the local discount store. Crates of all colors and sizes were a necessity in creating space. Stacked in corners and in closets, they held held books, tapes, shoes or food. Concrete blocks could be used to make shelves, but they were often supports for bed frames, giving a foot or more space for storage. The ultimate space-maker was the loft. Raising the bed four feet off the floor gave one room to walk. The second step in the process was comfort. Waking to bare feet on cold tile was avoided by cutting carpet to fit the floor plan of the room. Rugs, -whether spray-painted, woven, old or new, were easy replacements. Some tiled their rooms, sacrificing comfort for color and easy clean-ups. " If something spills all I have to do is wipe it up, " Annette Anderson said. The third step was color. Walls were a prime target in decorating, and they could make or break a prize-winning room. Contact paper substituted for wall paper. It a statement was to be made on the walls, spray paint was the best solution. Peace symbols and hearts were popular favorites. Feather dusting the walls also created a desired look. Plywood tool racks made handy wall fillers. Painting them added color, and they made space for hanging keys, pots, pans, towels or jewelry. " It was easier than keeping stuff under my bed and Dad had all of the supplies in the basement, " Jim Snyder, a Cawthon Hall resident, said. Decorating dorm rooms was an education in itself, precisely the excuse made to Mom w hen she saw the credit card bill. By Meredith Schmoker 1 aV ■M .

Seminole cheerleaders, lining the field, raise the volume to maximum potential. An electric surge of pride pluses through the hearts of young and old alike. The synchronized motion of hands and the unison of voices call Chief Osceola and his horse, Renegade, out of the tunnel and onto the playing field. Renegade gallops the length of the f ' leld while Chief Osceola, waves the spear high above his head. The crowd escalates to hysteria and rises to cheer on their mascot. Game captains and referees leave the field. Renegade then tears to midfield, rears and Chief Osceola thrusts the flaming spear into the Seminole Head. This pregame tradition began 25 years ago ■with alumni, Bill Durham. Durham, a 1965 graduate, created the idea of this mascot while in college, but said he could not spur enough excitement to begin the drive for a suitable horse and rider until Bobby Bowden became coach. " We were and are very serious about Chief Osceola being a respectful representation of the Seminole Indians. For that very reason, I gained permission from the Seminole Chief, Chief Howard Tommie, for Chief Osceola to ride. In fact, " the first costume was made by the ladies of the Seminole Reservation in 1978, " Durham said. Not only were the cloak and moccasins authentic, but around the rider ' s neck hung a unique artifact in Seminole history. This silver necklace sparkled with countless charms, Spanish coins collected by the Seminole Indians. In preparation for the pregame event, a grease-based makeup was rubbed into Chief Osceola ' s skin to give it a reddish tint. White and garnet stripes w ere painted on his cheeks, Seminole style. For the final touch, a gold spear was painted beginning at the chin and continuing over the bridge of the nose and ending in a point at the forehead. Renegade ' s rider was Allen Durham.

" We don ' t take anybody vho doesn ' t know how to ride a horse. Those applying must also have at least a 3.0 GPA, " Durham said. In making the final selection, applicants were required to pass an oral interview. This was a necessity since Osceola receives a lot of attention from the media. At the games separate groups represented Florida State: " . . .our wonderful 300 piece band known as the Marching Chiefs, our football team and our cheering squad, but there is only one Chief Osceola. He must be articulate and have a good command of the English language, " Durham said. Once a part of the Renegade team, work began right away. The present rider, apprentice, and team members helped care for Renegade. This included daily feeding, brushing, and walking of the horse. This obvious dedication to the image of Florida State could be seen upon visiting Mr. Durham ' s office. Covering the walls, with not so much as two fingers width between each frame, were pictures of Chief Osceola and the Renegade team. The first spear ever to strike the turf rests in the corner. One of the largest hangings and most eye-catching was a rubbing of Osceola ' s tombstone in South Carolina. Given to Durham as a gift by Jud Spencer, the handing reads, " OSCEOLA. . .Patriot and Warrior, Died at Fort Moultrie January 30th, 1838. " " We are very sensitive about the respectful representation of the Seminole Indians, " said Durham. " Local businessmen sometimes want to use Chief Osceola and Renegade to advertise their products. I absolutely will not prostitute it out. Chief Osceola and Renegade only appear at Seminole football events. " The Seminoles have never voiced any complaints to Durham. The University has recognized Durham as a member of the Golden Chiefs, " an organization of alumni and Iriends whose individual loyalty and devotion has been expressed by a history of outstanding generosity, " read the plaque which hung above Durham ' s desk.

For junior Kelly McCabe, it was a way of life. r4 " I try to focus my energies on helping other people. V It ' s very rewarding to hear someone say thank you, " McCabe said. Her service began when she became a brother of Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity in the Fall of 1990. Since . ' 1 then, she ' s held the office of Vice President of Service and c President for the fall of 1993. During her her stint as vice president, she also chaired the March of Dimes service project and helped raise approximately $2,900. In the spring, that sum was doubled to $4,930. " I w as extremely proud ol the hard work and dedication of the brothers (AOQ), " McCabe. She also became a member of the Collegiate Board for March of Dimes and was a campus organization director. " I took a tour of the neonatal unit at Tallahassee Memorial Regional Medical Center. I thought it would be incredibly depressing, but it was the most amazing thing I ' ve ever seen. The babies are so fragile, yet they are fighting so hard to stay alive. Those kids have more strength and courage. We owe it to them to make the world a better place so they know that their fight for life was worth it, " McCabe said. In addition to her dedication to the March of Dimes, McCabe also vorked as assistant director for InfoOuest book services. " It was an exchange program started by AOQ a few years ago. I worked v ith Damon Brown and Jenny Patterson (AOQ brothers) to expand the program. It ' s a worthwhile for those who utilize the service, " McCabe said. The Art History major planned to graduate in the spring of 1994. The search for graduate schools continued as she planned to further into Art Administration or Museum Studies. Her immediate plans were focused around the fraternity. " Being president of this organization is a tremendous responsibility. I would like to see us develop some our own original projects. Our national program of emphasis is AIDS and I would like to see us really get involved in the fight. Whether it be through support, counseling or education, I believe we could help a lot of people, " McCabe said. AVelly McCabe was given the " I Love March of Dimes " award by AOQ.

National vendors spent hundreds of advertising dollars towards the creation of this book. Whether looking for a new car, a place to get your notes copied, a styling salon to get your hair and nails done or looking for a place to shop for nev fall and spring fashions, this was the placeyou could find it. Without their patronage and the generosity of the Student Government Association, the program would have suffered. A great deal of thanks was given to our patrons. Adjacent to the advertising section was the student index. Alphabetically listed, looking for a triend, loved one, ex-boyfriend or granddaughter was easy as 1 -2-3 with this handy section of the book. Finally, the closing completed the section. It recapped current events, both controversial and joyful, so they could be remembered in the years to come. Sit back and take a look at the Bold Headline i i.

Three yearbooks have been put to rest and I teel as though an important chapter in my life is coming to a close. I ' m taking so many memories with me as I leave my desk and our tiny office. I ' ve had the pleasure of working with some of the finest people in the publication industry, both at conventions and on campus. I can ' t imagine what life would have been without the trials and tribulations that went with creating this book. There are many people that I owe a debt ol gratitude to. Mom, Dad and Cathy- Thanks lor always supporting my decision to do this " one more year. " My goal of being editor finally came true and I think I did pretty well. You guys are the best family anyone could ask for. I love you. Go Seminoles! ! Rebecca- You ' ve been more than just an adviser. Who else would take such good care of a student who almost broke their neck skiing? You ' ve always gone above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you! ! You ' re such a good secretary. Just kidding. Steven (aka " Stevie-Baby " " Stevemeister " " Steve-a-nno " ) Wallace - You ' re the most awesome rep. in the world ! It ' s been great. Laura Widmer- Even though you live far away and had no time to spare, you still managed to pay us a visit so we could get our feet off the ground. You ' re terrific! ! Tracy H.- You ' re one of the most tolerant roommates and friends in the world. How you put up vith me these last few months I ' ll never know, but I ' m thankful you did. I promise it ' s going to get better. John H.- As always, thanks for the late night phone calls. You ' re definitely a bright spot in this crazy life of mine. Joe and Keith-Meeting the two of you was one of the best things that has happened to me in quite sometime. Thank you for a summer to remember. Joanna- To no surprise, the sports section is absolutely beautiful because you are an extremely talented individual and everything you touch practically turns to gold. You did a tremendous job and I truly appreciate all of your help! ! Kristin (aka " Little Miss Auburndale, " " Dizzy " )- " You go girl! You go! " You did such a great job ! ! Thankyou for the hard A ' ork, dedication and ,most of all, the support you gave me. You ' ll always have a special place in my heart. Dody- You are one of the most determined people I ' ve ever met. Thanks for sticking with it! Your smiles, jokes and laughter always brightened my day. Alison- We had a really great time in Dallas. Was I really driving that fast around those corners? Were %ve on a mission to find the Hard Rock or what? I guess you could call us persistent. Nancy- WOOOSH. That ' s all I should have to say ! ! Sheldon really was from Zimbabwe wasn ' t he? Hard to believe. Thanks for allowing me to dump on you. Alicia, Heather, Candace, Beth, Charlie, Todd and Meredith- You guys deserve the writer ' s choice awards. Meeting all of those deadlines w ere hard, but you came through with flying colors. Thanks for your hard work! Robert- Even though I bothered you too often, I appreciate the fact that you helped out. You did a great job with portraits and all the other marketing stuff you managed to pull off. You ' re a good friend. Laura- ' Toto, I don ' t think we ' re in Kansas anymore. " Isn ' t that the truth? Could I please have a parka? The whole Ne A ' York trip is such a blur, well MOST of it anyway. Thank God we learned how to develop and print pictures in the " Bat Cave! " I don ' t know what I would have done withoutyou ! ! Dont ever let anyone tellyou that you can ' t he, Miss " We don ' t want to expose the photographic paper " Petri. The book is in good hands and the torch of kno ' wledge has been passed on. Good luck nextyear my dear friend. McDonald ' s is our friend and so is Kelly McGillis! !Duran Duran was the best! ! TA WANDA! ! To the entire staff- We did a great job. I know it was tough, chaotic and confusing at times, but I think we pulled it off. It ' s all going to be worth it when the book comes in.

Some of the questions were ans vered and others were posed. Either vay, it affected all of us. After a year of allegations of sexual misconduct, rumors of cocaine addiction and misuse of allocated university funds, tenured professor Dr. David Ammerman resigned before the judicial disciplinary decision was finalized. He decided to continue his research at the College of William and Mary. The first 100 days of President Clinton ' s administration were geared toward cabinet appointments and easing into the job. His major opposition stemmed from his stand for allowing homosexuals in the military. The federal government increased the nationwide financial aid budget by $20 million dollars. This aid helped students get into school and stay there. The English Department found difficulties w ith their summer (Continued on page 318). Closing 317 OametAm iN -b VV JomelAm Y KJX VJ class schedule. Students ' search for classes continued. The crime rate in the city continued to rise as eight gunshots rang through the parking lot of Burt Reynolds Hall early one Sunday morning. Former football player Willie Pauldo and friend Chaun Brown happened to be walking by. The tw o men were unharmed and the culprits were taken into custody by the authorities. The Athletic Department chose former 1984 Olympic bronze medalist Kim McKinzie as the new assistant track coach. McPCinzie has worked with the team for the past six years. Defensive football coordinator Mickey Andrews w ithdrew his name from consideration for the head coach position at the University of Houston. The 27 year university veteran decided to stay because of his " attachment to FSU and the program, " Andrews said. The Softball team made their fourth appearance in the College World Series. The ladies suffered a heartbreaking loss in the first round of the tournament. Dr. Jon Dalton overturned the student supreme court ruling which declared the spring student government elections void. President-elect Tracy Newman and Vice President-elect Fred Maglione of the Alliance Party were duly installed into office in April. 3 318 Closing Mn [embers of Sigma Kappa sorority prepare to say goodbye to their seniors by painting the walls along College Avenue.
