The Seminole Cross Country Invitational was held in September at the Seminole golf course in Tallahassee. is greet Hope for the future was all that remained after a year of mourning and change. These tragedies and events brought us together, forcing us to become one. We returned to our apartments, dorms and classes with a touch of weariness. At the end of the summer we watched University President Dale Lick resign, forcing the administration to find an interim president. It was announced that former president Bernie Sliger would act as president until a replacement was chosen. As we once joined to heal, we later joined in celebration. We saw tradition and expansion as the Magnetic Lab opened, the twentieth anniversary of Mainstage performances began and construction continued on Doak Campbell Stadium. Together we camped outside of the Dick Howser Stadium ticket booth for days in order to get football tickets to the game against Miami, billed as the Game of the Century. (Continued to page 5) Opening 3 (Continued from page 3) We intensely watched the first win over Miami in three football seasons. That game also made winners out of the fortunate students who were able to get tickets. Due to the new athletic fee thousands of students were left with only a useless coupon after all student tickets were distributed. Whether we endured the October heat to see the game live at Doak Campbell or watched at home from our couches, for one weekend we were the happiest people in the South. One issue that united us was the athletic fee that was added into tuition. Following ticket distribution for the Miami game students, with the support of the Student Government Association, protested the fee. We learned that, together, things were possible. Although we were named the number one party school in the nation, we kept our priorities in perspective. The fall brought us together; we worked to make the AIDS quilt ' s visit a success and Stop Rape Week raised awareness on campus. In our world, where things add up quickly, we have found that we are not all alone. Working together is the solution and the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. 40 pening Junior Tommy Bull finds recruits for the Seminole Ambassadors.

" And the greatest of these is love " . " Gone but never forgotten. " These sayings and several hundred others were carefully stitched to fabric and sewn together as quilts to create the loving memorium. Friends and families of deceased loved ones gathered around the masterpiece with contrite hearts, remembering the good and bad times they had shared with the faces which appeared on each panel. For others, who had never experienced an event like this, it was time to learn and cast away feelings of prejudice, discrimination and ignorance. A year and half ago, the Golden Key National Honor Society began their Vriting a message of love, a student takes the time to reflect on the tradgedy that the AIDS epidemic has brought. 1 he names are read by volunteers during the display of the AIDS .Memorial Quilt. quest to bring the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt to the community. The Student Government Association jumped in and furnished the display fee of $3,500. Once the financial committment was met, Golden Key, Thagard Student Health Center and Big Bend Cares continued the long application process which made it possible for the Quilt to make its appearance at the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center. " The students were so determined to bring it here, " Mary Penney, Co-Chairperson from Thagard Student Health Center said. " We were going to do whatever it took. " As mandated by the NAMES Project, a central CONTINUED planning committee was established to choose the Host Committee for the event. Interviews were held and a committee of 18 members was chosen to coordinate the event. Each committee was led by a student and community leader to ensure both avenues would be covered. Volunteers from around the area came together to help make the dream a reality. " It was the most emotional experience I ' ve ever been through, " Tracy Henningfeld said. " I noticed how close to home this disease really was. Through my volunteer work, I felt as though I was really making a difference. It was refreshing to see people come together and help one another. " The NAMES Project began in 1987 when Cleve Jones and fellow San Franciscans saw the need for public awareness about the pain and suffering connected with the disease. The first display of the Quilt in its entirety was in October of the same year in Washington, D.C. It consisted of 2,000 panels. Its second full appearance was in 1992. It measured approximately 15 football fields and housed over 22,000 panels from worldwide donors. The 29 ton Quilt would never be shown in its entirety again due to its enormous size. Each panel symbolized the victim ' s lives through the eyes of relatives, friends and lovers. Anger, fear, frustration and joy was depicted on each with the aid of certain materials such as lace, leather, taffeta, buttons, flags, poems, songs, articles of clothing, human hair, love letters, teddy bears and favorite photos. " It was interesting to see a comparison between old and new panels, " Henningfeld said. " Before there was just a name, now there was a tribute with memorabilia. AIDS has finally become more ' acceptable ' and now the people who have died can be remembered with the respect they deserve. " Among the 600 display panels were flamboyant pianist Liberace and AIDS activists Kimberly Bergalis and Ryan White. Forty-one panels were dedicated from the Big Bend area during the solemn closing ON PAGE 10 By Amy Shinn Aids Quilt 9 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 ceremonies. " I consider myself very lucky to have a healthy family. I felt honored to help these people. It made me want to go out and tell people to be careful so other families wouldn ' t be put through this amount of grief . I pray that we get a grip on this situation as soon as possible, " volunteer Tina Induisi said. After the departure of the Quilt, there was an abundance of work left for the Host Committee to complete. Financial forms, publicity tactics, updated volunteer information lists and other detailed records were completed and sent to the home office. It was a very exacting process, Penney said. " We had to make sure all of the bases were covered and the information was current when we sent it to the office. The key to the success of the NAMES Project is their dedication and organization. " This project touched more than just the campus, it touched the entire community. " It brought an increased awareness in our rather small community, " Co-Chairperson Matthew Shepherd said. " We touched a lot of lives that weekend. Because of this project, a new sense of compassion was brought to Tallahassee.

Scott wuiox Photo hy Vanessa Crockett Photo by Vanessa Crockett Homecoming is a festive time for all... From the lights of the carnival to the soggy playing field of the game, Homecoming gave a sense of tradition, both new and old. Not only was this a time for the alumni to visit their old memories but it was also their opportunity to see new ones made. Homecoming was a time for all to enjoy and for the tradition of the University to shine through. However, for anyone familiar with the traditions of Homecoming week, it was evident that change accompanied every aspect. The week started off with the Homecoming carnival held on the intramural fields. Students, alumni and the public came to enjoy carnival rides and participate in such events as karoake and sumo wrestling. Different vendors sold everything from fake tattoos to buttons with personalized snapshots. " We got tattoos on our ankles and buttons with our pictures on them, " Kim Kibler, a nursing major, said. " Jen and I got a kick out of the tattoos. " During the week, there was also the rededication of Jennie Murphree Hall, a campus residence hall that underwent a two-year renovation in which the interior was completely gutted and modernized. Another part of the festivities included the traditional Homecoming parade in which all campus organizations were invited to participate. The Greek organizations participating in Homecoming events were paired into different groups. The pairings entered a float and banner into competition and the results were some of the most creative and artistic work seen. With the Homecoming theme " It ' s A Hit, " students came up with a wide range of ideas. Greek winners in the float competition were the Sigma Nu and Gamma Phi Beta pairing and the winners in the banner competition were the Phi Kappa Tau, Delta Zeta and Alpha Phi Alpha pairing. Non-Greek winners of the float competition included Alpha Kappa Psi who took first place, the College Republicans who captured second place and the United Latin Society who received third place. Not only were these organizations involved in the float and CONTINUED banner competitons, there was also a skit competition. Pairings prepared a skit to compete against the other campus sororities and fraternities. Winners in the skit competition were the Lambda Chi Alpha and Kappa Delta pairing. As a whole, the three categories: float, banner and skit, all played a part in showing the spirit of the University and the diversity among students. Following the Homecoming parade and activities was the much anticipated Pow Wow event. Held at the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center, the University pep rally featured the crowning of Matt Frier as Chief and Joy Staple as Princess. " I was very surprised when they called my name, " Princess Joy Staple said. " I couldn ' t think of a better way to end a wonderful week. It was like ending my four years with a bang. " Although the crowning of Chief and Princess was a tradition at the University, the Greek domination of Homecoming elections was different than what had come to be expected from previous years. Matt Frier changed all of that when he became the first Seminole football player to be crowned Chief. In fact, voters at the Leach Center were surprised when Frier showed up to vote. One student who commented about his vote for Frier received a handshake and a slap on the back in appreciation. Frier ' s success during Homecoming stemmed from the support of his family and friends. Head Coach Bobby Bowden, the University cheerleaders, the Golden Girls, the Marching Chiefs and the skit competition were also featured at Pow Wow along with the comedy of Allan Harvey and headliner Howie Mandel. Other Homecoming activities included a breakfast, a torch run from the Panama City campus to Doak Campbell Stadium and the thirteenth annual Reservation Run from the Broadcast Center to the Seminole Reservation. The traditional football game continued with the Seminoles ON PAGE 14 By Kristin Huckabay Homecoming 13 CONTINUED versus Wake Forest at Doak Campbell Stadium. Although the weather was rainy and cold, Seminole fans, students and alumni came out to support their team. The weekend was tun for all. Following the game, Tallahassee merchants put on a downtown block party with good food, live music and a street dance for all to enjoy. " As a Homecoming representative, I saw all of the hard work and dedication that went into Homecoming and the building of the floats, the designing of the banners and the skit practices, " Laura Webb, the Delta Zeta Homecoming representative, said. " It ' s FROM PAGE 1 3 a lot of hard work but in the end it pays off. " Homecoming activities came to a close with the Homecoming Galla. This event was open to all Saturday evening at the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center. Awards for Homecoming were given and there was food and entertainment for everyone who attended. This new tradition added to the excitement and entertainment. The overall winner o{ Homecoming was presented to the SN and r f B pairing. Overall, Homecoming was a week full of the remembrance of old traditions and the beginning of new ones. .

It ' s already been all over the United States and last summer, I took it to Europe, " Coral Chance said. " I guess you could say it ' s a world traveler. " It was not the American Express Card, nor was it any sort of X I f automobile. It was the tried and true, practical and dependable, fashionable, yet sturdy, backpack. Around campus, it was impossible not to notice how abundant it was. The backpack served as a keeper for the hectic and often unorganized life of the college student. Students who carried one knew, that without it, they Would be prisoners in a land of confusion, lost keys and misplaced papers. With so many colors and styles to choose from, seeing two identical backpacks was quite rare. Even if the brand and color were identical, something usually existed to set it apart from all of the rest. The backpack served as sort of a window to the soul. Creative students decorated theirs with artwork and doodles, while other students simply let pins and buttons do all of the talking. It was possible to learn something about another person just by checking out their backpack. Some students purchased the basic, generic backpack for a very low price, while others went all out and bought the heavy duty, name brand, leather one. One of the most unique backpacks seen around campus was the one with the built-in clock. Characters from Disney and 4 i I 4 «fc Jnt m Photo hy Vanessa Crockett Looney Toons popped up on backpacks throughout the University. Cartoons were not the only ways to express an interest. Sports fans had no trouble finding their favorite embroidered logo or team colors on a backpack. However, the most popular team logo seen was that of the University ' s own Seminoles. Besides making a fashion statement, backpacks had many practical uses as well. They were loaded with pockets, pouches, zippers and many other secret compartments. With all of the books and materials students had to carry around, having the extra storage space helped. " I keep pens and pencils, tissues, money, keys and my glasses in the extra pouch on my backpack, " Renee Green said. " All of my books and paper go in the main section. " Although the backpack was made to be worn around both shoulders, the majority of students favored one side to carry it on. Bicycle owners, however, were thankful for the two straps. " When I ride my bicycle to class, I just put my backpack on both shoulders, " Heather Rooney said, " and I don ' t have to worry about it falling off. " Backpacks were not only used at the University. They were often spotted at airports. Travelers stashed magazines, candy, purses and pillows in them to carry on the plane. Campers used them for carrying tents, sleeping bags, food and utensils. People who lived in the city often took their backpacks on the bus or train and on shopping trips because they were more convenient than several shopping bags. A nice little invention, the backpack served different people ' s needs worldwide. Perhaps the most appreciative of the invention of the backpack, though, was the tired student who needed something to rest his head on while taking a snooze in the Union. By Jackie Healy Backpaking 19 Photo by Steve Stibei 20 Student Life Seminoles claim in-state bragging rights from rivals LOVVOUT Adrenaline. The thousands of chanting fans felt it. The coaches felt it. The players felt it - driving them, pushing them to their highest intensity level of the season. The fans made sure everyone around them sensed the same feeling of anticipation when they cheered and chanted during pre-game. When the Florida State Seminoles football team took on the Florida Gators, the Miami Hurricanes or the new rival, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the result was explosive, hard hitting, " in your face " football. These three teams were not just schools on the schedule, there was much more on the line than just the win. It was a Photo by Vanessa Crockett feeling and an attitude that fans had. There was also a " right " that came with winning a rivalry game. That " right " was being able to tell friends who cheered for the opposing side. There were also those family members that lived in a different part of the state or country and therefore felt a loyalty to another mascot. Students enjoyed telling others that graduated from their high schools that the Seminoles had won the " right " to call themselves State and National Champions. " Having a rival gives you bragging rights, " linebacker Ken Alexander said. " From the time I ' ve been here, I haven ' t had that chance; hopefully, that will change this year. " If one were to play a game of word association with a FSU football fan and mention rivalry, one would likely hear one or the other: Gators or Hurricanes. For many, the Gators brought out the animosity due to the longtime tradition but mention Miami and some Seminoles eyes narrowed and faces reddened. " I ' m from Clearwater, so for me, you ' re either a Seminole or a Gator, " offensive tackle Greg Frey said. " When I go home, I hear about it for a year or I hear how lucky we were this time. It ' s a matter of respect. " When the Miami Hurricanes blew into Doak Campbell Stadium to take on Charlie Ward and his aerial attack offense, one could see the sparks flying. For many, this became a grudge match compared to no other. " To beat Miami at home was the best graduation present I could have gotten this season, " senior Shannon Moore said after the Seminoles 28-10 defeat of the Hurricanes. The entire Tallahassee community showed their competitive spirit when Miami came to town. Thousands of students camped out to claim their tickets, t-shirt vendors lined the streets, cars became moving billboards painted with shoe polish and thousands of desperate people held signs begging for tickets. It was a game to remember. " My father is a die hard Cane. The phone call to him in Miami after we beat them was the best call I made all year, " senior Miguel Fernandez said. The dawn of a new rivalry began in the fall with a school deeply embedded in football history and tradition. The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame took on the Seminoles for the first time, bringing anticipation for many great future battles. Rivalries evoked a special hunger in the players, parents, coaches, alumni and fans. Whether it was Florida, Miami or even Notre Dame, the Seminoles looked to satisfy. By April Melquist Rivals 21 Sometimes it ' s found in the most unexpected places UIDANCE As Gilchrist residents got settled into their rooms and classes, Larry Williams and Earnestine Henry made the first attempt to make everyone feel at home. For many homesick students, the friendly smiles and compassionate gestures of the two were a real comfort. Whether it was a simple " hello " every morning or the start of a good friendship, everyone in Gilchrist encountered the genuine good cheer of Larry and Earnestine. The two were residence hall maintenance workers who felt that their jobs included a great deal more than making sure everything was clean and running. " The other day I saw a girl outside her door in the hall crying, " Earnestine said as she shook her head. " She said she hated it here at college. She was homesick. I talked to her and I prayed for her. It hurts me to see them hurting. I like everyone to he happy. I know they miss home and they have someone here. " In between sc nibbing floors or cleaning the restrooms Earnestine could be found socializing with the girls who lived on her assigned floors. Many girls looked to her for friendship as well as guidance. Her kind face seemed to attract all who had a problem or just wanted to talk to someone. " Earnestine is a good-hearted woman and a hard working lady, " junior Jennifer Thomason said. " She aways took the time to say hello. She was very genuine but she also stuck to her professional role. " Larry and Earnestine said they enjoyed getting to know the residents during the year. It seemed an instinctive part of their jobs to get involved with the students and talk to them everyday. To them, each student had a certain characteristic that made them unique. Many students that moved out of Gilchrist Residence Hall each semester left an impression on Larry and Earnestine that lasted a lifetime. " There was one guy who lived here who I called Howard Cosell, after the sports commentator, " Larry said. " He knew absolutely everything about any sport. He loved to talk about it. He By Jennifer Wiand was amazing. Larry and Earnestine did not seem to mind the messes that residents left around the bathrooms and in the halls after the weekends. " It doesn ' t bother me, " Larry said. " Kids will be kids. " Larry said he could even tell which male resident left which mess. He said he enjoyed getting to know the different types of guys who lived on his floor. The guys seemed to really enjoy Larry as well. " Larry ' s an all-around great guy, " second floor residence assistant Roger Kostiw said. " Everyone sees Larry as a friend. " Both Larry and Earnestine said they worried about the students as they adjusted to life without parents and guardians. " I tell my boys at home that the girls at Gilchrist are mine, " Earnstine said. " They are my girls and I just love them. " Larry said he considered students ' weekend drinking as a stress reliever a potential problem. " A lot more students are drinking under age. As long as they do so in moderation and don ' t drive it ' s ok, " Larry said. " I know from personal experience that drinking and driving can get you into trouble. " Larry and Earnestine said they learned a lot about the students just by watching and observing them. According to them, the students were more advantaged and had more possessions than previous years. With all of the radios, microwaves, televisions and other electronic devices, it seemed the residents had all the comforts of home. " It used to be that students mostly brought luggage and books. Now they make room for the Nintendo set, " Larry said. " As long as it makes for a more comfortable atmosphere to study in, that ' s o.k. " Dealing with the messes, debris and other negligence of students could be nerve-racking for some people, especially the maintenance workers who saw it everyday. Larry and Earnestine seemed to accept all the students for who and what they were. " Gilchrist Hall is very old and can seem dismal at times. Yet Larry and Earnestine make everything seem brighter, " sophomore Diedre Feely said. " They make everyone feel at home. " vt one time Gilchrist was a dormitory for music students. In the ' 80s it became a coeducational dormitory. Carnestine Henry poses in front of a mural in Gilchrist. It was painted in 1992 by residents that lived on the fourth floor. 22 Student Life L Photo by Ayanna Luney Larry and Earnestine 23 24 Student Life Students find image enhancing costly but fun AKINGIT it Photo by Bill Garrett Have you ever faked Seriously, now. Have you ever? On campus, it was not uncommon to run into thousands of students who had done it. Fantasy ? Exaggeration ? Enhancement of the mediocre? " Sure, I ' ve faked it. But I don ' t share that kind of information with just anybody, " a student who wished to remain anonymous said. Do not think the topic of discussion here is the S - E - X word. Guess again. The controversial, yet very personal issue, was students, mostly women, who disguised their natural selves with artificial hair color, extensions, nail tips student buffs her acrylic nails . This was to assure that there were no air bubbles for a smooth and natural look. riair extensions are one of the many ways which women choose to enhance their appearance. and tropical tans in the height of North Florida winters. " On a random day, in a random class, I counted nine people out of 1 7 who either had monster acrylic nails or obviously were suffering from the curse, " senior " au naturale " Tifanny Mordini said. Mordini described the curse as punishment. Three weeks after someone picked a fabulous color at the salon everyone could see that they were being punished with grotesquely dark roots springing from their scalp. And if the curse did not punish fakers enough, incriminating photos surely did. " One weekend when I went home, I found a picture of my mom with a frosted blonde afro, " Toshia Harper said. " She normally had straight, brown hair. She said she was pretty cool then but I couldn ' t help but laughing. " Some students had families which were ultra conservative in the 1970 ' s and could not seem to find any blackmail pictures. A personal survey could be conducted daily. At the Union on any Wed., the rainbow assortment of Life Saver-colored hairdos could be seen blooming on the stairs of Moore Auditorium. And at any local gym, brown, bulging biceps and suntanned, blondes could be spotted in the dead of Tallahassee ' s dreary winters. Being a slave to fashion did not come cheaply either. Acrylic nails could cost as much as $35 for a set and had to be filled at least every two weeks for $15. Over a year ' s time, acrylic nails could cost a faker $425! The hair coloring industry made a fortune off victims who paid from $25 to $50 initially. Necessary touch ups were needed every eight weeks or so depending on the color and the touch ups could cost as much as the original coloring. It did not take a mathematician to calculate the big dollar signs in image enhancing tactics. " Money is no object when it comes to looking as good as I possibly can, " sophomore Dee Jackson said. " I do not want a $5 haircut because I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. " Certainly, the idea of faking it was not a new one and all efforts to fake it were not disasters. Marilyn Monroe was a prime example of a mousy Midwesterner gone Hollywood, as her hair changed from brunette to platinum. It was possible to make millions off of charlatan images in the 1990 ' s. Some superstars faking it included Andre Agassi, Madonna and even RuPaul, the seven-foot tall, platinum blonde transsexual pop star. The theme of the decade could have been said by Andre Agassi, " Image is everything. " By Wendy Diehl Faking It 25 ; Pike ' s probation was extended three more years by the University but they RE BACK They were back and the news shook the campus. Although denied a return to campus by both the Interfraternity Council and the University administrators, Pi K appa Alpha decided to come back with or without University recognition. The Delta Lambda Chapter of nKA had their charter revoked in 1988 when members refused to cooperate with the police investigation that followed the gang rape of an 1 8-year-old student. At the FIKA fraternity house, the girl was given alcohol and then raped by several fraternity members. She was then taken to another fraternity house and dropped in their foyer, after members had painted demoralizing words and another fraternity ' s symbols on her thinks. When the police questioned nKA brothers, the entire fraternity refused to cooperate. Their refusal to cooperate with the police prompted the University to kick the fraternity off campus for five years and prompted their national office to revoke their charter. The fraternity was denied a return to campus because of an unofficial nKA group, the Firemen ' s Club, which operated during the term of the fraternity ' s suspension. The University gave the chapter an additional three year suspension because the alumni association violated the terms of the original suspension by assisting in the creation of the illegal underground club made up of nKA members. Even though the University deemed this a reasonable punishment, the nKA did not. The fraternity ' s newly colonized members, local alumni and national office were ready to challenge University authorities. " We feel we were unfairly denied recognition by the University review committee and the Interfraternity Council. We are going to reco Ionize the chapter, " Bob Hall, president of nKA ' s local alumni chapter, said. Pi Kappa Alpha met with the Panhellenic Association to discuss possible sorority involvement with the fraternity. By Dody Perry Since the fraternity was not recognized by the University, sororities refused to have social functions with nKA or mix with them in any way. " We flat out told them we would not support them. We have no intention of assisting them in any way, shape or form, " Panhellenic President Julie Dunn said. The community seemed wary of the fraternity ' s return due to the fresh memory of the student ' s rape. It made various Tallahassee women ' s groups angry, concerned and frustrated. " ( Phe unofficial group) shows that they have no respect for women in this community... they don ' t have the ability to follow rules, " Lynn Rosenthal, executive director of the Refuge House, said. Starting an unwelcome colony on a campus was not a common occurrence for nKA fraternity. In fact, it has never happened according to the nKA National Director of Expansion Stevan Vincent. " We have never done this before, " Vincent said. " We have never gone to a university without approval. This is a special case... We feel that nKA can have a positive impact on FSU. We owe it to the alumni and the students who contacted us to get a colony. " The Pikes were back and they were trying to prove that they were not the same guys that were here five years ago. The National nKA fraternity and the Alumni AA Chapter wanted a colony started on campus with or without the approval of the University. The colony had several requirements to meet before they could receive their charter again. The requirements were the toughest on campus including a combined 3.0 GPA and 60 hours of community service per member. This accounted for a combined total of 3 500 man hours of community service. " We are looking for scholars, leaders, and most importantly, gentlemen. Every person that wears the Pike letters will be watched, from the president to members, and it is important that the people we rush represent the three qualities that we demand, " Kent Braughman, President of the nKA colony said.

AKEELIA Photo by Vanessa Crockett Lake Ella was one of the many local spots where students went for fun, relaxation or whatever else entered their minds. Located on North Monroe Street, this particular body of water served as a fairly pleasant tourist attraction. With the fountain as its centerpiece, Lake Ella was surrounded by ducks being fed by children, squirrels that ran up and down the trees and a romantic gazebo. Picnics were very common at Lake Ella because of the setting and scenery of the environment. Quite a few couples took advantage of the lake ' s late night ambience for romantic reasons.

Some lovebirds relished taking moonlit strolls or snuggling togeth er on the park benches or in a vehicle. " A close male friend and I parked by the lake, looked at the bright stars through his sunroof anc drank together, " biology major Christie Jones said. Other students, however, felt a little different towards the lake ' s romantic atmosphere. Since the lake was situated just off one of Tallahassee ' s busiest streets, the clamor of traffic could annoy romantic intentions. " It ' s just not as romantic or important as th y claim it to be, " senior Derrick Brown said. Lake Ella was not only a place for couples, single students also found worthwhile activities to do. The American Cancer Society Move - Along - Athon was held on Oct. 23 at the lake. This event was for anyone willing to walk, jog, run, roller blade or wheelchair around the lake in memory of a loved one or a friend. Many University students participated in this event by obtaining donations from peers and companies. The Move - Along - Athon was a tremendous success for the volunteers and for the American Cancer Society. " I felt like I did my part as a community member of Tallahassee and a fellow student of the University for the Cancer Society, " early childhood education major Sandra Borowiec said. Staying healthy and keeping in shape was one of the main concerns of students and Lake Ella provided the perfect setting. Many students went there for exercise, such as walking or jogging around the lake. Being outside was a welcome change after being cooped up in a classroom for several hours and University students enjoyed having someplace other than the gym to exercise. " Unlike my first impression, which was that Lake Ella is just a make-out spot, I learned that it could be a place to walk around and talk with your friends, " freshman Tiffany Duhart said. After classes, students enjoyed hanging out with their friends or studying at the lake. Picnic tables and large, sprawling oak trees offered a more relaxed atmosphere than Strozier Library. " I grew up in Tallahasse. I spent many summer afternoons there with my family, " junior Ann Kemper said. " The older I got the more I used the lake as a place to study or just to relax. " Whether it was a place to socialize with friends, enjoy the environment, jog a mile or two, volunteer for activities or spend quality time with a loved one, Lake Ella proved to be the perfect get away spot for students at the University.

Marryingyour long lostbrother who was your best friend ' s ex-husband. Discovering you had a twin sister who was kidnapped by terrorists at birth and raised in the jungles of San Cristobal. A lavish wedding attended by all of the prominent citizens of Salem, interrupted by the bride ' s dead husband. A medical intern who delivered twins to an unwed mother in a canoe . Coming back to life six times , on three different shows . Did any of these scenarios sound familiar? Chances were, they did. For daytime soap opera fanatics, this was just the beginning. Some students shuffled around their work and class schedules just so they could catch a glimpse of their favorite stars at work. For others, video recorders were set hours in advance for the day ' s episode. At the end of a long day, st udents could come home and watch their favorite star- crossed lovers cross paths once again. " It ' s amazing how frustrating it is to watch these things. Sometimes you just want to scream at the TV and tell them how ridiculous they ' re being, " senior Maria Fulgieri said. Mystery, intrigue and most importantly, romance, drew young men and women in, for at least an hour a day. " It ' s a nice escape after a long day, " junior Tracy Hammer said. " You look at some of these people and think ' I wish I had clothes like that ' or ' I want my wedding to be that perfect. ' " The audiences of these dramas were predominantly female, however, an occasional conversation in class was started by a conspicuous male seated in the back row. " A guy can ' t openly admit that he ' s a soap fan or he ' ll get criticized. It certainly has advantages though. It ' s a great way to meet girls. At least you know you ' ll potentially have something in common with them, " a college male who wished to remain anonymous said. Television was not the only way to catch stars in By Amy Shinn action. Personal appearances around the country gave fans the opportunity to rub elbows with their heroes and heroines. " About a year ago, I saw Micheal O ' Leary (formerly Dr. Rick Bauer ol Guiding Light) at the Tallahassee Mall with a friend of mine. He was so nice and answered all of our questions. We even got our pictures taken with him and an autograph. It was great, " Jamie Cichon said. 1 rendy soap opera magazines made it possible for viewers to keep on top of current story lines and plot twists. " Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly come in handy when I fall behind on my soaps. I should own stock in them by now. Hopefully the entire collection will be worth something one day, " senior Kim Kappes said. Daytime soaps also made a contribution to current issues; they were not just a fantasy world of glitz and glamour. " Margo ' s rape on As the World Turns was the most compelling story I ' ve ever seen, " Fulgieri said. " The writing and acting were very real and I think it made people realize the trauma a victim goes through after such a heinous crime. " Date and gang rapes, homelessness, safe sex and AIDS were some of the hot topics which soaps tackled. Nighttime soaps also made a comeback with the Fox Network ' s Melrose Place and Beverly hiills 902 1 0. Both shows touched on several sensitive issues like their daytime counterparts. Beverly Hills 90210 specifically addressed a younger audience since the entire cast recently entered college. The show spotlighted teen pregnancy, religious persecution and drug use. On Melrose Place, where the characters were about five years the senior of the 90210 cast, they tackled alcoholism, adultery, gays in the military and prostitution.

DDICTED Sleeping is known as an addiction for students. Some students just could not stop hitting the snooze Button. iany students find themselves cleaning addicts. Jenny Schoen passes the time vacuuming her apartment. You needed to do it. You could not live without it. Over and over, religiously, it was done. It was an addiction. For some it was food, for others it was exercise, for all it was something that they were addicted to and needed on a regular basis. Deprivation of someone ' s addiction sometimes elicited a physiological response. " I get headaches if I don ' t drink at least one cup of coffee every day, " junior Dehra Stracy said. People were mocked for their addictions. They were called compulsive, sometimes they were labeled obsessive, but these addictions were not of the stereotypical nature. " There is a major difference between obsessive compulsive disorder, commonly referred to as OCD, and addictive or compulsive behavior, " Student Counseling Center Clinical Director Rich Senecek said. " OCD involves ritualistic behavior, whereas an addiction or compulsion is something that one feels compelled to do but not in the same ritualistic manner each time. " Some people ' s addictions had an adverse effect on their own bodies but others ' addictions affected those around them. " My roommate thinks I ' m crazy, " sophomore Jen Fagan said. " I can ' t walk on my carpet if I think that it ' s dirty. " An obsession with vanity was the problem for Photo by Alissa Curry some. These individuals, however did not resort to diet pills or starvation, instead they went jogging or lifted weights. " After eating a big meal I ' m unhappy with myself and feel compelled to exercise, " Fagan said. " I can be obsessive about certain things but I don ' t think that it ' s a problem. " Getting caught up in the football spirit was almost inevitable at the University. Hours, sometimes days, were spent in ticket lines. Some students based their lives around games and drove for hours to see an away game. Still others stayed glued to their television sets on Saturday so as to see the highlight films over and over. " 1 can ' t function without seeing the ' Noles play football each week (during the fall semester), " junior Jeff Gray said. " I suffer from withdrawal when we have a week off. " A common addiction among college students was shopping. Students found that their shiny new credit cards facilitated this addiction. " I completely, wholeheartedly, believe in the buy now, pay later theory, " senior Cathy McCorvey said. " Credit is a wonderful thing. " Credit card companies themselves also aided in this charging frenzy. " It seems like every credit card company in the world has my address and wants to send me their card, " McCorvey said. " I receive at least one credit card application per week in the mail. " Not all addictions were bad ones. Craving chocolate was much less harmful than craving a cigarette or alcohol, especially on today ' s college campuses. " I don ' t drink obsessively, I ' ve never done drugs and I don ' t eat meat, so when it comes to candy and caffeine, I ' m all over it, " senior Ann Killebrew said. " I feel that if those are my only addictions then I ' m doing just fine. " " I think if more people were addicted to the stairmaster instead of drugs, this world would be a much nicer place, " junior Melissa Walters said. By Todd Kimmelman Addictions 33 Bringing experience to education... NTERNING College was a place to express new found ideals and ideas, a place to learn from and about other people. It was also a place to experiment with friends, classes and the social scene. It was a time of discovery. However, for graduating seniors, that was all coming to an end. It was time to put everything learned to the real world test. It was time to intern. Student ' s priorities seemed to change over the course of a college career. When students began college, they were more concerned with taking the right professors and required classes. Beginning students were also more concerned with making friends and working a part time job in order to have enough money for going out on the weekends. However, when the years of college were over, the key word was experience. Education was wonderful but experience was required to have the advantage in the tough job market. " My internship has provided me with valuable insight into my industry. It has shown me the diversity of the areas that are available, " Ginny Walgren, a hospitality administration major, said. In today ' s job market, experience was stressed more than ever and interning offered students the opportunity to work in their chosen fields. Participating in an internship experience allowed students to have the actual hands on experience of what they had studied and read about since they entered their majors. For many internship participants, the process began by talking to their advisor about internship locations, contacts and application information. In several departments on campus students were able to begin their search with the departmental bulletin board which posted current opportunities for majors. Some students were able to include an internship along with their classes while others were required to leave the area and immerse themselves into some internships. Some internship lead directly into employment while others gave students lifelong contacts that could lead t hem to By Kristin Huckabay promising job opportunities. With some internships there also came a minimum number of hours that the student had to register for within their college. The hours ranged from one to 1 2, with 12 registered hours equaling 40 hours of work each week. Although interim reports, along with a final report, were required from some of the students, there was much more to be gained from the internship itself. An internship was a time to work with professionals and make contacts in the student ' s chosen field in order to see the knowledge learned from books applied to real life situations. " Employers are looking at more than a transcript, " Dr. Barry Solomon, a professor in the College of Communication said. " They are looking for the ability to start on the job with training and career related experience. The best way is through the internship. " Interning was also a time to insure the students of their interests and abilities to make it in their chosen fields of study. In every internship a student was able to decipher what areas of interest they chose to make their career choice. With many different job offerings, a student had the opportunity to explore different areas within a single field of study. There might have been an area that appealed to some students more than another and the only way to find exactly where they fit their niche was by interning. " It was a good learning experience because I got to shadow professionals but I learned more about being a better person than just the average intern, " Natalie Gilmer, a public relations major said. With the internship, students were able to gain the experience needed while meeting professionals within their field who could help them advance into the working world. Internships provided opportunities to students for further educational experience and helped ensure that they would enter the working world with valuable experience and a working enthusiasm for their newly chosen career. .

This was one of " The lost generation. " " The twenty- somethings. " " The thirteeners " (the thirteenth generation since the Constitution). " The nameless generation. " " Generation X " (nicknamed after Billy Idol ' s first hand). These were the nicknames given to a generation of people ranging in age from 18 to 29. Opinions of this particular generation varied. They were considered to he brats by some and victims of past generations by others. Although this generation included some high school students, a majority of the generation included college students and young adults starting presented by Student Campus Entertainment. Jtickers distributed by UMagazine show rejection for the label. " Generation X " was only one of several labels out in the job market. Born in the wake of the " babyboomers, " they were a group " in search of themselves, " according to Monica Collins, a writer for The Boston Herald. " They think they know what they want: family, financial success, a job they love. But they aren ' t sure how to achieve any of these goals, " Collins said. Collins sympathetic point of view turned to aggravation in the end, wondering if " this generation just wants too much too soon. " The criticisms that plagued this generation ranged from " symbolically slaying their parents " for the problems they faced to whining about " their Mcjobs " while " displaced steelworkers and loggers of the past decade who also labor in Mcjobs ( if they ' re lucky) but who have none of the hopes of becoming computer literate job applicants like the generation brought up on Nintendo. " This argument was presented in the Tallahassee Democrat by University professor Dr. Neil Jumonville. He saw a lack of activity from this generation and asked for " better analysis, stronger intellectual quality, a greater sense of history, some humility about what they in turn might be able to accomplish in their lives and a greater sense of altruism, idealism and social commitment. " The concerns of older generations challenged these young people to strive for more, to work harder. In looking at these requests, it was important to consider the concerns of the generation. Oliver Trager, editor of America ' s Children , wrote, " Recent studies suggest that America ' s children are caught in a cycle of rising crime, child abuse, alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide and are faced with sweeping changes in sexual standards. Additionally, evidence reveals that today ' s young people foresee a bleak future for themselves, this country and the world. " Although this generation saw future problems, so did the many generations before them. Some of the criticisms toward today ' s youth may have been valid but it was important to remember that " children are the world ' s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future. " Those words from John F. Kennedy, over a decade ago, still remained true. " The name Generation X symbolizes the uncertainty that our generation faces in the future. We have more problems than the generations before us and we ' re not sure how to face them, " junior Erin Rooney said. So, as Jumonville said, " ...around us at this moment we are witnessing a wave of the young beginning to lift its head and take stock of itself as an entity. " It may have also been true that this generation was not so lost.

You have the most gorgeous eyes . Are those contacts? Are you in my biology class , the one that meets m Ruby Diamond? Whether students were in the Leach Center, Strozier Library or in the bookstore, pick ups were every place people were. More obvious places included local bars such as Bullwinkles or the clubs like Metropolis which dominated the campus strip of Tennessee Street. It seemed that no matter where one was, someone in the close vicinity was getting the " moves made " on them. So., .what ' s your major? Where are you from? Can I buy you a drink? Can I work in on the bench press with you? You look so familiar to me, I ' m sure I know you from somewhere. On any given day, literally thousands of attempts were made to spark conversation with someone new. While some crashed and burned, others found a future husband, wife or significant other in this honest past time. So... what ' s your major? Where are you from? I bet you don ' t smile like that for just anyone. All my friends left, can you give me a ride home? I think we had a class together last spring. In many cases this somewhat harmless activity became a gift of humor from one person to another. This also forced some to be the brunt of laughter. Some pick ups resulted in later embarrassment on the part of the picker upper. Such incidents also gave the victim something to smile in reflection over when they would later see that person on campus. Pick up lines somehow seemed more humorous when viewed in the daylight of Landis Green than when attempted in the dark drunkenness of a bar. So. . .what ' s your major? Where are you from? I just had to come over and say " hello. " Do you mind By Laura Petri and Dody Perry if l sit here? If I told you that I loved you, would you believe me? Well, I do. People went to great lengths to perfect the ultimate pickup line. Sometimes, without considering that they could actually be humiliated, a person would try a pickup for other reasons. One common reason seemed to be a dare. A night out with friends sometimes paved the way for a dare, a dare that could either leave someone with a new friend or out in the cold. So. . .what ' s your major? Where are you from? Have I met you somewhere before? You ' re the kind of girl I would love for my mom to meet. You don ' t even need make- up. You ' re gorgeous just the way you are. One night at a club, junior Dave Keith found himself in such a predicament. " A friend of mine dared me to go up to this girl and say, ' Hi, my name is Lonely. ' The girl just looked at me and said, ' Hi, I ' m taken. ' All I could do was walk away, " Keith said. So. . .what ' s your major? Where are you from? You look great. But you would look better by my side. The 1984 blockbuster film " Top Gun " starring Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis offered a memorable, if not somewhat fantastic, instance where a very public pickup actually worked. In the unforgettable scene, Cruise and his co-pilot (played by Anthony Edwards) sang the Righteous Brothers hit, " You ' ve Lost that Lovin ' Feelin ' , " in a room full of people at the Officer ' s Club. So. . .what ' s your major? Where are you from? I would love to spend the rest of my life with you . 1 could make all your dreams come true . However, things did not always have a Hollywood ending. Very rarely did someone meet their Tom Cruise or Kelly McGillis in Poor Paul ' s, Po ' Boys or history class. Those one in a million times that it did happen that way offered hope to those still searching for the right person. Most students found their significant other when they were least expecting it or in the most surprising places. And someone had to break the ice and make the first move. So., .what ' s your major? Where are you from? r 4 i a popular pick up spot on campus. It was once voted one of the best pick up places in the country. Working out is not all that is accomplished at the Leach Center.

" The location is great; I like it a lot, " freshman Tim Wadsworth said, regarding Southgate Campus Centre. Southgate looked absolutely complete on that late August morning, nestled between the Sweet Shop and the Chi Omega sorority house. It was quite a change of scenery from the Phyrst bar that once stood on the same lot. The centre advertised luxury housing at its finest and included maid and linen service, game rooms, computer hook-ups, a parking garage, a full food court, retail shops and more. Southgate, however, was the center of controversy since it opened its doors. The bookstore, retail space, non alcoholic bar, basketball and volleyball courts were still under construction when the centre opened for residents. Developer for the project, Kent Deeb, filed for protection in federal bankruptcy court from creditors seeking almost $2 million in outstanding debts. Only a last ditch $550,000 effort from the project ' s rainy day funds allowed Southgate to purchase such necessities as shower curtains. The FBI and state comptroller ' s office later investigated aspects of the project ' s financing. At the beginning of the University ' s fall semester, Southgate stood at about a 58 percent occupancy rate, according to Director of Sales Ed Xanders. Within the next two months, occupancy rates increased and CONTINUED Photo by Ayanna Luney almost 70 percent of the rooms were filled. In addition to the expected roommate difficulties, Xanders said he credited the Florida Clean Air Act with encouraging many of his new residents to make the move to Southgate. " It ' s amazing how many people are moving out of dorms because of the new statewide policy banning smoking in the rooms, " Xanders said. " Our entire building is smoke-free except for the private residence rooms. We are a private facility and we ' re not governed by the Board of Regents so the Act had no effect on our facility. " Many residents were angered that the retail space was still not completed when they moved in. " There are supposed to be some extras that we don ' t have, " resident Tara Thoman said. However, Xanders said he expected completion in the spring. " The retail space isn ' t going to be here for a while, " Jessica Pova, chair of the social committee, said. " Maybe we shouldn ' t have had to pay as much since the amenities weren ' t all ready. " Many residents chose to live at Southgate for security reasons. Southgate had security guards 24 hours a day and residents had to have their Southgate identification card to be admitted to the upper portions of the building. Visitors were to be accompanied by a resident at all times. There were also video monitors of the parking garage which were constantly monitored by security personnel. " The parking garage is nice, " Pova said. " As a freshman, there is no place else that I could park that would be close to my housing. They thought the safety precautions through very well. " Resident Terry Warner agreed. " Even though it ' s kind of a hassle, I really feel safe here, " Warner said. Residents of Southgate said that communication TO PAGE 42 By Nancy Floyd and Heather Rattana Southgate 41 CONTINUED was a problem when the centre first opened and the management agreed that it had been a difficulty that needed to be improved. " At first there was really a problem with communication, " Director of Residents Allison Johns said. " But now that residents know who to complain to, communication has opened up. The management is really trying to work with the residents and the hall government. " Southgate established a hall government in the fall and Vice President Chris Reichert said he felt the management was dealing with complaints well. He cited an FROM PAGE 41 incident involving a higher cost for the use of laundry equipment. According to Reichert, when residents complained and made a valid case, the costs were brought down to comparable levels. " I got involved to help change things, " Reichert said. " I don ' t really agree with the gripes people have; I ' m pretty satisfied with it. I look at what other people on campus have and it can ' t compare to what we have. " Thoman said that although Southgate had a lot of good ideas, there were still things that needed to be worked out.

Amid the loss, friends found the time to share a drink. Fraternity parties lit up the night during their fall rush. Problems over the past years led to more strict regulations. An alcohol survey of American campuses revealed the nature, scope and consequence of collegiate drinking for the first time. It found that college students drank an average of 5.11 drinks per week while 7.8 percent of students knocked hack 16 or more drinks per week. Forty-five percent of students reported using alcohol on a weekly or more frequent basis. Officials said that the study, Alcohol and Drugs on American College Campuses: Use, Consequences and Perceptions of the Campus Environment, was the most comprehensive analysis of chemical dependency among young people. The study, which drew its findings from a database of 56,361 students on 78 campuses from 1989-1991 was the most extensive ever done on collegiate drinking. The survey was co- authored by Cheryl A. Presley of Southern Illinois University and Philip W. Meilman of The College of William ek Mary. The study found that college students in the South consumed an average of 3.9 drinks per week and 35 percent reported hinging in the two weeks prior to the study. Binge drinking was when an individual indulged in five or more drinks in one sitting. Forty-two percent of the students surveyed nationwide admitted recent binge drinking prior to the survey. " . . . when more than 40 percent of college students Photo by Steve Stiber report recent binge drinking, we cannot pretend that alcohol abuse is just an isolated or infrequent event, " Secretary of Education William R. Riley said. " The fact is far too many students are jeopardizing their heath and safety, as well as that of others. " Nationally, it was found that underage college drinkers consumed more alcohol and suffered more blackouts, hangovers and problems with their drinking than students of legal age. Illegal drinkers had the hardest struggle with alcohol, the report disclosed, pointing to the fact that they are twice as likely to have been victims of sexual assault or to have taken sexual advantage of others. " Underage drinkers aren ' t as careful and don ' t handle alcohol as well as older students, " Meilman said. This same group was twice as likely, when drunk, to have taken part in more violent acts and destruction of property. According to the findings, underagers were more likely to suffer acute physical problems, suicidal moods and actions and poor academic performance. The report noted that gender differences in alcohol abuse were important factors for structuring rehabilitation and counseling services. This was the first time that such findings were brought to light for consideration. The survey documented that males were heavier drinkers than females. One of the study ' s most disturbing findings was the discovery that about one-third of the students said they had driven while intoxicated at least once in the year before the survey. However, less than two percent reported that the police had stopped them from driving while intoxicated. Nationwide, the most frequent drinkers on college campuses earned the lowest grade point averages. Students who reported D and F GPAs consumed an average of 1 1 drinks per week, while students who earned A ' s averaged only three drinks. " Campus officials and students themselves can now clearly assess the scope and consequences of substance abuse, " co-author Presley said. By Nancy Floyd Drinking 45 To find some relief from the daily stress, students take to HE ROAD " Tank full? " " Check. " " Tickets? " " Check. " " Directions? " " Check. Can we go now? " " Car keys. ..where are my car keys!? " That ' s it, I ' m outta here! " If this sounded in any way familiar it was because, for one reason or another, you were one of the many who hopped into their cars and drove off to some exotic destination far from the confines of Tallahassee. Although the sites of away football games were most popular among these locales, there were many more motivating factors to get up and go in the Sunshine State. The fabulous mecca of Mickey, more commonly known as Walt Disney World, in Central Florida provided many students with a tempting diversion. " I visit Orlando at least three times a year to go to one of the theme parks, " senior Andrea Gray said. " I ' m drawn by some mystical force, I guess. I just love visiting there. " The beaches of any coast were also popular destinations and could reached by driving in virtually any direction. Alligator Point and Panama City were most frequented by day-trippers, while beaches in Jacksonville and South Florida were targeted by weekend warriors. " I need the sun and sand to recharge my batteries after a tough week of school, so on sunny weekends I ' ll usually take off for P.C. Beach for a day or so, " senior Jennifer Reynolds said. February meant only one thing for students needing an excuse to get away: Mardi Gras. The allure of beads, beer and naked people dancing in the streets was enough to bring out even the quietest homebodies. " I ' ll never forget Mardi Gras. ..of course I can ' t By Todd Kimmelman remember it but I was told that I had a great time and I made it through the weekend without having to be taken to the hospital or jail, " junior Dave Hamilton said. " It was the best weekend I never had. " New Orleans was an easy escape for students also because of its proximity to Tallahassee and its lowered drinking age. It was a popular trek just a few hours down Interstate 10. Neighbors to the north welcomed students with open arms. The Peach State ' s border was only minutes from campus and was a great spot for an impromptu picnic. A few hours further lay Atlanta, home of the free and land of the Braves. As the closest major league baseball team to Tallahassee, the Atlanta Braves were adopted as the surrogate home team among sports fans on campus. " After coming to Florida State and being a Seminole fan it seemed like the next logical step, " senior Tom Watson said. " After all, the Braves and the Seminoles have a lot in common, the highlight of which is Deion Sanders. " Of course, the city offered much more than just baseball. Great shopping, food and night life added to Atlanta ' s allure. Many students found that it was convenient to visit there because they could stay free with friends who were attending one of the many schools there. " I ' m poor and proud, " senior Audrey Kayne said. " When I feel the need to take off somewhere I go to Atlanta and stay with my best friend in her dorm at Georgia Tech.

During the evening of Ithe Miami victory, students gathered in celebration. uring the Miami game, the crowd does the wave. These were the biggest waves that Tallahassee saw. Every club and bar within the Tallahassee radius featured a drink special geared toward attracting college students of legal age. Students went out, consumed more than their body could handle and woke up the next morning with a throbbing headache. Classes were skipped because students were too busy hugging the toilet and trying to remember who they had danced with the previous night. When the October polls came in, the University was crowned the nation ' s best party school. Not only did the University have an exceptional athletic reputation to showcase but this recognition added the number one fun factor to University system contributions. The poll was taken by Inside Edge , a Northeastern magazine produced by students attending Harvard University. According to the poll, the University had all the makings of a student ' s paradise. " With perfect weather, women and waves, Florida State is a full-time party for its 30,000 undergraduates, " the article said. " And with the year round frenzy that follows the Seminoles as they compete at the national level in basketball, baseball and football, Florida State undergraduates rarely have a moment to themselves. " The reviews from the University community were mixed. Some took the title as a compliment, while others did not appreciate the stereotype it placed upon the Photo by Robert Parker University ' s reputation as a prestigious institution. The article suggested that the University ' s lenient graduation requirements made it easy for students to party their way through school and still receive a degree. Dispelling this " negative image " was one of President D ' Alemberte ' s first priorities when elected to office in early December. He said he thought the University needed to challenge students to do more. Vice President for Student Affairs Jon Dalton agreed with the president and said the survey was immature. " I think these surveys are ludicrous to begin with, " Dalton said. " They are not scientific. ..but they can be powerfully negative. They convey messages that are very misleading when they portray students as being not serious about academics. " Many students argued the inaccuracy of the article viewing the University as a tropical paradise. The Gulf of Mexico was quite a drive from Tallahassee, not to mention there were no waves for surfing except when the occasional hurricane blew by. Junior Shannon Hopkins said she was amused by what the article said about the perfect weather and women. " If only they could visit Tallahassee in a month like August when it is so hot you cannot breathe. We wish we had the sea breeze and waves they spoke of, " Hopkins said. " As far as the perfect women... what about all of the attractive men they never included in the article? " Despite the controversy the article caused, many students seemed to secretly take pride in what the polls showed. The men from Harvard made the University look like the best place on earth for those four or five years students knew as college. Not only were Seminoles the best in sports but students also knew how to have a good time and study. " College is what you make of it, no matter where you attend. You can either study and make good grades or you can party your education away, " senior Brian Treby said. " I think it ' s good to have a balance between the two and Florida State offers the best of both worlds. " By Jennifer Wiand 1 Party School49 Students find creative ploys to avoid paying attention in class. Here are the OPTEN 10. Sleep. Maybe it was an 8 a.m. class. Maybe it was a 2 p.m. class. Regardless, the monotone drone of your professor ' s voice slowly (or, in most cases, quickly) lulled you to sleep. " The most restful sleep that I ' ve ever gotten has been in my 8 o ' clock class in Fisher Lecture Hall, " sophomore Carrie Pollock said. 9. Doodle. The artist within you had always been screaming to be set free. Now it had its chance, unleashed on the unsuspecting desks of your classroom. Whether it was your fraternity ' s or sorority ' s letters or a less-than-flattering rendition of your professor, in your eyes it was a masterpiece. 8. Balance your checkbook. A refreshing change from analytical trigonometry, this task required only the knowledge of basic arithmetic. " I ' m so busy that the only time I have to balance my checkbook is during my classes, " senior Julie Hiipakka said. " If I didn ' t have so many boring lectures, I ' d probably bounce a lot more checks. " 7. Visualize your professor naked. Admit it. You had thought about it once or twice. The attraction had been obvious ever since you had laid eyes on the instructor.. .and then you woke up. You were still stuck back at reason number ten! The thought may have crossed your mind, however, but only as a means of retaining your sanity and keeping yourself entertained during such a boring lecture. Anything more was too hideous to even consider. 6. Compose a symphony. You didn ' t have to be a music major to accomplish this one, just creative. A tune may have just popped into your head and you ran with it. Heck, if the Breakfast Club gang could do it, then you could too. After all, Mozart was barely into double digits when he composed his first symphony. 5. Fantasize about being Charlie Ward. You could do a lot worse than being the University ' s By Todd Kimmelman first Heisman Trophy winner in history. " I ' ve always wondered what it would be like to be a nationally-recognized star athlete, especially one as talented as Charlie, " sophomore Jennifer Metts said. The two-sport athlete was the envy of all who watched him pick up the prestigious award on Dec. 1 1, 1993. 4. Write a best-selling book. If former President Bush ' s dog, Millie, could do it, anyone could. Any subject would do. From the torrid love affair that you had with your professor in your freshman year to tips for surviving the camp-outs for football tickets. The longer you had been in college, the more material you had to work with. 3. Estimate the weight of the person sitting next to you. ..and then ask if you ' re right. This could have been the ultimate test of restraint, especially since the person next to you looked like Dunkin Donuts ' best customer. It may have seemed cruel but the level was entirely at your discretion. " I ' ve always wondered how those guys do it at carnivals, " sophomore Veronica Nigro said, " I guess they must have been to a lot of boring lectures. " 2. Read all 2000 pages of the North American Free Trade Agreement. This accomplishment would undoubtedly rank you among the elite. Aside from the unfortunate soul who had to typeset the behemoth, you probably would have been only the second person to read it cover to cover. " So many people have so much criticism about NAFTA that I wonder how many of them actually read it, especially Ross Perot, " senior Elizabeth Perez said. 1. Contemplate the meaning of life. Life, the universe and everything. What did a 4-0 GPA mean in the worldly scheme of things anyway? Was winning the National Championship in football the ultimate reward? " Who cares! I ' m graduating and the ' Noles are number one! " senior Jennifer Shaw said.

" - Dean Emeritus Diehard Fallon v 1 ■ ' ,; .-« Sandy Hawker is joined by distinguished alumnus Michael Piontek in song during the Mainstage Production of " Carousel " . Piontek played the leading role of Billy Bigelow. I - ' V, . 54 Academics Photo by Jon Nalon The School of Theatre celebrated its 20th anniversary with a flare and a standard of excellence that exemplified what the students had learned throughout the years. On Sept. 28, 1973, the Florida Board of Regents supported the promotion of the Department of Theatre to its own school. The theatre department had a long history of successful theatrical performances, originating from the West Florida Seminary in 1857. The School of Theatre ' s first performance was " Our Town, " under the direction of the first dean, Richard Fallon. Fallon remained the dean for 10 years, exemplifying leadership that resulted in the renaming of the Mainstage Theatre to the Fallon Theatre in 1989. The present dean, Gil Lazier, succeeded Fallon in 1983 and continued to open the doors for students and teachers to the community of live theatrical performance. " I am proud to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the founding of the School of Theatre by working with the new capable leader who will take the School into the 21st Century, Gil Lazier, and the talented students who are present, " Dean Emeritus Fallon said. The School of Theatre encompassed three active and separate live stages throughout the University ' s campus. The Mainstage (Fallon) Theatre resided in the Fine Arts Building, housing the four major live performances of the year. The smaller Augusta Conradi Studio Theatre in the Williams building sat about half the number of people as the Fallon Theatre and CONTINUED presented two productions per semester. 1987 saw the creation of " The Lab, " a small 150 seat theatre, which allowed for the cultivation of experimental performances by faculty and students. Aside from the sites of theatrical performance on campus, the School of Theatre extended down the state to Sarasota, where the FSU Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training attracted many promising performers. In addition to its extension in the state of Florida, the School of Theatre maintained cultural awareness by participating in international exchange programs in several foreign countries. The most successful has been the exchange program with the Moscow Art Theatre School, which entailed two American Russian programs. With its active involvement in various classical masterpieces, contemporary theatre and musical theatre, the School has maintained a distinct excellence which resulted in the ranking by US News and World Report as one of the 10 best graduate theatre programs in America. The year of anniversary celebration brought about some new additions to the faculty as well as special events that complimented the four Mainstage productions. The first production of the season was " Carousel, " which marked the return of alumnus Michael Piontek in the leading role of Billy Bigelow. Piontek earned his MFA in acting from the FSU Asolo Conservatory. His success as an actor included many television appearances and roles, especially on " Knots Landing. " He most recently completed a successful role in the TO PAGE 57 Photo by Jon Nalon Saxon Palmer and Noelle Krimmshare a moment together in the first Mainstage production of the second semester, " The Rover.

" The School of Theatre also experienced faculty changes as it welcomed both Michael Zelenak and Gregory Bell to its faculty at the beginning of the fall semester. Zelenak served as the coordinator of graduate programs, utilizing his experience in professional, FROM PAGE 64 educational and administrative theatre from Yale University. " Michael Zelenak ' s knowledge and experience will greatly enhance the graduate programs in the School of Theatre, " Dean Lazier said. Bell headed the graduate program in design technology and served as the production manager. Bell had been a consultant on theatre projects and technical personnel in addition to teaching at various universities, most notably Carnegie Mellon. " We look forward to utilizing his (Bell ' s) skills and talents to enhance our programs in technical theatre, as well as the quality of our various productions, " Dean Lazier said.

" -Dr. Jeff GarieS i A counselor at the career center helps a student process the necessary paper work. The Career Center was located on the second floor of Bryan Hall. 58 Academics r rtttn M Photo hy Steve Stiher The Career Center offered tremendous resources for any student interested in finding a major or career. The Center provided a process by which students could come in at any phase in their college career to receive help and information. " We can find something to offer any student, any step of the way, " Career Center Director Dr. Jeff Garis said. " Whether they are freshmen or graduating seniors we can help. " Students having a hard time finding where their interests lay or what major to choose could find helpful career advisors available for answering questions at anytime through the Curricular- Career Information Service. The students were issued self-assessment activities to test which skills and interests suited them, such as self-inventory tests, computer-based guides and check lists. Various books and brochures also offered information about careers as well as special workshops and seminars. Once settled into a major, students found the Career Experience Opportunities Office very useful in contacting an internship and or placing them into an internship. This provided the students with a chance to test their decisions about a certain major by giving them the opportunity to use what they had learned. It also gave them a head start in finding employment after graduation as well as credentials to add to their resumes. The Career Placement Service was perhaps the most widely used resource at the Career Center. CPS primarily specialized in helping graduating seniors find employment or post graduate schools. The Resource Library provided computer systems, handouts and advisement for those who were going on to graduate school. Helping students obtain job searching skills, critiquing resumes and providing individual interviews with potential employers were some of the tasks of the CPS. In addition, literature and job listings on current job openings were also helpful. Seminole Futures Career Exposition, an event each semester for companies to come and recruit seniors, was the one of the biggest events for CPS. It educated students on the availability of entry-level positions and the character of participating companies ' . " Having the information at my fingertips enabled me to compare company approaches. I decided I really liked John Hancock ' s philosophy on sales, " senior Jesse Christiansen said. " This knowledge gave me more confidence and I ' m sure my impression was more memorable. " The task of choosing a major and sticking with it, obtaining an internship and then making definite plans for the future after graduation was certainly not easy. It required much patience, commitment and determination by each student. The Career Center was the place to make a dent in all of the chaos. " There are many routes to take, " Career Center Associate Director Allan McPeak said. " In fact, it can get pretty confusing. A job search through the Career Center is not a one day event. " Photo by Steve Stiber A student sits at a table with his career information spread out and contemplates his future.

With the building of the University Center the administration was facing a move. by melissa waiters Cuts in Florida ' s university system budget have become common over recent years. Universities across the state lost a great deal of money and faculty members due to these cuts. Due to the cuts, the University has cut back on classes, closed off smaller majors and reduced positions across the state. In September of 1991, students and faculty members from across the state staged a march to the Capitol. The purpose of the demonstration was to get the attention of legislators that continually cut the education budget in Florida. The cut in 1 99 1 was not a solitary event. This year the state university system saw more of the same treatment. " It was a very positive experience to see the faculty and students working together for a common goal, " senior Julie Hiipika said. " What the legislators are failing to see is that cuts will have strong repercussions. " Florida ' s state university system seemed to be moving backwards in comparison to other states ' systems. While others were moving up in the rankings, the Florida system was fearing a slip. The state of Florida was ranked 35th in the nation in regards to the average salary level of state university employees. In order to compete with universities across the nation, the budget proposed by the university system to the Florida Legislature for the 1994-95 budget year included a 1 percent raise in the salaries of all faculty and staff members. The proposed raise was to be used to attempt to regain the average salary level the state university system had attained during the 1990-91 budget year. During that budget year, the state was ranked 27th in the nation in regards to the average salary level of state university employees. Since then, Florida has dropped eight places. Furthermore, the average salary of state employees was approximately 9.7 percent below the average salary of employees at comparable public universities across the nation. In addition, associate professors in the state were the most behind with their salaries at 4.2 percent below the national average. " What they are failing to see is if they keep cutting salaries teachers will leave the state and with no incentive to stay, the will drive our quality of education further down, " senior Wendy Stephen said. The hoard of regents was not looking to substantially increase the salaries of employees, instead it was looking to move back to the 27th place ranking. The board of regents did not want to see the state university system slide any lower in these rankings. They realized that if something was not done soon, universities throughout the state were in jeopardy of losing quality faculty members. Joanne Campbell, BOR human resource office, reiterated the general objective of the board. " We are just trying to keep the university system from falling further behind, " Campbell said. i 60 Academics " We ' re just trying to keep the university system from falling further behind. 99 Joanne Campbell American Civilization or AMH 1000 is taught by Thomas Dye.

Dr. Carl a£an u The Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center houses the annual Distinguished Lecture Series. The program is run out of the Center for Professional Development and Public Services. 62 Academics The 20th century ' s voice of the stars, Dr. Carl Sagan, graced the stage of the Distinguished Lecture Series on the night of its tenth anniversary. Since Sagan was the opening speaker in 1983 when the Lecture Series began, this date also marked the 10 year reunion for Sagan with the University ' s students and staff. Sagan ' s contribution to the study of planetary science was unsurpassed. He played a leading role in the Mariner, Viking and Voyager spacecraft expeditions to the planets, for which he received the NASA Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement. He also served as Chairman of the Division for Planetary Sciences for the American Astronomical Society, served as President of the Planetology Section of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and was editor in chief of Icarus, the leading professional journal devoted to planetary research. However, the TV generation remembered him best for his television series, " COSMOS, " which became the most widely watched series in the history of public television and earned Sagan an Emmy and a Peabody Award. " Consider this, " Sagan said, as the lights dimmed, enveloping the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center in blackness, " we are the first generation to see the planets. " Projected onto the movie theater-sized screen were Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune in their natural orbits. Their oranges and reds illuminated the room as Sagan took the audience on a journey to meet the ancient observationists of the universe. The audience watched the sun rise in the east and set in the west and watched the stars follow the same pattern. Five of these stars, however, seemed to wander. The ancients thought they were gods but today ' s civilization has come to know known as the planets. " Just in a flash we have gone from ignorance to some degree of knowledge, " Sagan said. Upon his command, the audience was landing with the Viking craft on the surface of Mars. Sagan admitted that although he once believed that the crew might find life on Mars, his beliefs were not confirmed. Because the planet lacks an ozone layer, explained Sagan, ultraviolet light strikes the surface and destroys organic molecules. no M organic chemistry, " Sagan said, as Takin 8 a moment before answering, Carl Sagan the audience perused a landscape res P™ds to a question posed by a student.

" You look at an earth-like planet like Mars and you learn the dangers of what stupid things not to do to your world, " Sagan said. After the audiences ' tour through time and the light-years, Sagan closed his lecture with a final comment on extraterrestrial life, " It is typical for humans to think that, like the ancients, we are at the center of the universe. It is arrogance, conceit and pretension to think we are the only intelligent beings in the universe. " At the conclusion of Sagan ' s two-hour lecture, the audience filtered through the Civic Center doors into a star-filled night. marked a return for Sagan to the University.

Safety was at the forefront oi everyone ' s mind. meredith schmoeker News of a national laboratory dedicated to the study of high field magnetism seized the attention of the scientific community. Dr. Jack Crow, a professor of physics initiated the University ' s involvement. He was later chosen as director of the laboratory. The National Science Foundation accepted proposals from competing organizations and the winning proposal was rewarded with a research grant. " I felt we had as good a chance as anybody, " Crow said. However, only f o ur months remained before the due date. Time was running short and the Legislature had yet to approve the proposal. Governor Lawton Chiles shared Crow ' s enthusiasm for the project and the Florida Legislature agreed that if the project was successful, then Tallahassee would be noted in history as the front- runner in magnetism research. Predictions proved victorious. The laboratory, officially known as The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, occupied 290,000 square feet of the University ' s Innovation Park. The magnets contained in the laboratory were the most sophisticated in existence. Models generated magnetic fields from several thousand up to millions of times that of the Earth ' s. Because of its sheer size and capacity, the NHMFL dwarfed all previous efforts in the study of high field research. During the next decade, the NHMFL devoted $300 million toward to development and use of the world ' s largest, most powerful resistive, hybrid and superconducting magnets. CONTINUED Though the results of this research might have seemed important only to intellectual elites, electromagnets produced practical conveniences including levitated trains, microwave radar and Magnetic Resonance Imaging used in medicine. Opportunities to improve on this existing knowledge were extended to scientists in premier labs and universities worldwide. An international peer review committee evaluated proposals, filtering the multitudes of those desiring to use the facility. Up to 400 researchers were expected to use the lab yearly. A view into the atomic and electronic skeletons of matter gave understanding as to how rubbers bent and how metals stood up to heat and corrosion. Vast amounts of research was spent on superconductivity. Franz Frieberg, a graduate student of Crow ' s, was studying the resistance of ceramics coated in a superconducting material. " By testing and applying stress to various ceramics, perhaps one type might be found which functioned at higher temperatures, " Frieberg said. Though lightweight and excellent at retaining heat, ceramics were too brittle to be of practical use. If a ceramic was found to operate successfully at room temperature, the efficiency of engines made of metallic materials would be improved. The first two appointments to NHMFL were Nobel Laureate Dr. Robert Schrieffer and Dr. Hans Schneider- Muntau, the leader of the magnet development program at Max Planck Institute. Both were leaders in high-field magnetism and TO PAGE 67 64 Academics good a chance as anybody (to receive the magnetic lab).

Lev Gor ' kov, a Russian scientist, was an expert theorist on the practical macroscopic aspect of superconductivity. He assisted NHMFL in their study oi MRI. Four wings of the lab were dedicated to the development of this new technology. By magnetically polarizing ions within the body, an image of the inner workings of a brain or heart, for example, were capable of being reproduced. MRI saved thousands of lives in diagnostic hospitals nationwide. NHMFL was a coalition of federal, state and private forces. The State of Florida contributed over $66 million to the construction of the lab, as well as $1.2 million per year for a visitor ' s FROM PAGE 64 program. A Corporate Affiliates Program linked the private sector with the lab by providing opportunities for firms to aid in development. The Apple Corporation, for example, donated one million dollars in hardware and services in support of the facility. " By the year 1995, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory will be the only research facility of its kind in the Western hemisphere, " Janet Patten, director of public relations for the lab, said. NHMFL did more than turn heads for a moment. It planned to keep heads turning southward to Tallahassee and to the University well into the next century. An experiment is being performed on site. It was for a private sector company, Bechtol Corporation. Research was a large focus of the laboratory ' s work. Four wings of the laboratory were designated to house the development of the new technologies.

Many students were dissappointed that Shakespeare was no longer a requirement, as classes were so difficult to get through registration. by waiters " To be or not to he, that is the question. " These were perhaps the most famous of Shakespeare ' s verses. If the question that was being asked regarded the University ' s Shakespeare requirement, the answer was: not to be. In response to the budget cuts imposed on the state university system, the English department was forced to drop the Shakespeare requirement from its program. In past years, English majors have been required to take a Shakespeare class in order to graduate. However, increasing numbers of students and decreasing amounts of money forced the English department to reconsider the requirement. " The University could not require students to take a class when there were only a few sections of it being offered each semester, " English department Student Affairs Coordinator Ann Durham said. Durham went on to say that although it would not be required, the class would still be offered for anyone interested in taking it. Typically, two or three sections were offered each semester and this was not enough to handle the constantly increasing number of English majors. In addition, there were no major codes for English classes, so any student could take an English class. This prevented many lower division majors from picking up the class because higher division non- majors were taking the class as an elective. Departments that used codes to restrict non-major students from registering for certain classes typically only put the barrier on upper level required courses. On the first day of class, there were always students sitting on the floor and standing in the corners, hoping the professor would add them to the class because they were unable to pick it up through regular telephone registration. In addition, there were many students who were having problems graduating because they were unable to pick up the class semester after semester. Instead of having to take the Shakespeare class to graduate, English majors were required to take a British Literature before 1660 class. This included Medieval Literature, Renaissance Literature, Chaucer or Milton. Junior English Education major Maureen Cavanaugh said she thought the Shakespeare class was too important to miss. " I just can ' t imagine being an English major and not having to take a Shakespeare class, " Cavanaugh said. " It is a shame that there aren ' t enough teachers to teach the class because I think it is a vital part of an English degree. " Not all English majors shared Cavanaugh ' s sentiments. Junior English Education major Brian Hollinsworth agreed with the change. " I think it is cool, " Hollinsworth said. " People should not have to take the class if they do not want to. " While English majors seeking their teaching certification were required to take a Shakespeare class, students that were English majors prior to the change had the choice between the two options. 68 Academics I just can ' t imagine being an English major and not having to take a (Shakespeare class. " -Maureen Cavanaugh Professor Eugene Crooke watches his students as they contemplate Shakespeare. The budget cut in the English department enabled students to graduate without ever taking a Shakespeare course. This change in requirements upset many English students.

" Natalia Delgado Dr. Jon Dalton, the vice president of Student Affairs, speaks at the afternoon opening ceremony of Jennie Murphree. Other attendents of the ceremony included Student Body President Tracy Newman and Associate Alumni Director Dr. Betty Lou Joanos. 70 Academics Photo by Steve Stiher Constructed in 1921, Jennie Murphree hall was one of the newly renovated residence halls on campus. The hall was named for Jennie Murphree, a native of Tallahassee. Jennie Murphree was the wife o( the Florida State College for Women ' s first president, Alhert A. Murphree (1905-1909). The hall served as an example of Jacobean Revival architecture. The multi-million dollar project began with the renovation of Jennie Murphree, an all women ' s residence hall, and will continue over the course of the years with Bryan, Reynolds, Gilchrist and Broward residence halls. Jennie Murphree was closed for two years during the renovation. It reopened for the fall term of 1993, bigger and better than ever. There was a dedication ceremony held in honor of its opening. The ceremony essentially consisted of members of the board of regents, the past and present residents of the hall and the University Women ' s Choir. Lunch was served and residents gave tours to the guests. " I enjoyed the dedication ceremony and meeting the oldest living resident of the hall, " junior Natalia Delgado said. Although a little more expensive than some of the other halls, many students preferred Jennie Murphree. There was a waiting list to obtain residence in the hall due to the high number of requests by students. " I chose this hall because of its central location and all of my classes are around it, " sophomore Michelle Quiles said. The students felt more secure because the usual building key was not used. Entrance into the residence hall was gained through the use of a card-key. If the card- key was stolen or lost, the code was invalidated and a new one was issued. Since the interior was remodeled, residents said the rooms were cleaner and more appealing. Also the female students were restricted to share the bathroom with a maximum of only one other female. " I appreciate my own bathroom in my bedroom, " freshman Sybille Oldham said. Jennie Murphree was equipped with 335 air-conditioned womens spaces. The hall had limited visitation and was staffed with a hall director, seven resident assistants and a hall manager. The Jennie Murphree hall director, Amie Schiedegger a doctoral student in criminology, enjoyed preparing historic events for the students that were currently residing in the hall. On the bottom floor of Jennie Murphree, all oi the students were majoring in a science or health related major. That floor was reserved for the Women in Science program. The program entailed special activities and support services for women majoring in the physical sciences, mathematics and engineering. For instance, if the student was interested in the medical field, the program would facilitate students with a medical surrounding in which the student could learn and observe. The Jennie Murphree hall renovation was a great success for the women presently attending the University and for the women who will be attending the University in the future.

Cawthon Hall was located on the east side of the University near Landis Green and Strozier Library. by candice case Each fall, the University welcomed thousands of new students to campus. Most people incorrectly assumed the unfamiliar faces were all freshman. Instead, many of the new faces on campus were those of transfer students. The majority of transfer students were individuals who had received an Associate oi Arts degree from a junior college. They then came to the University to complete their course work for a Bachelor ' s degree. Transfer students also included the who attended a junior college or four year institution and left before earning a degree. There were advantages in completing the first two years of school at a junior college rather that at a larger university. " Basically, everyone has to take the same classes their freshman and sophomore years. I decided to take classes at a junior college because they were less expensive than at a university, " transfer student Karin Shwinger said. In addition to the cost benefit, junior colleges offered smaller classes. This appealed to many students fresh out of high school, especially those who worried about their academic performance in a certain subject. " In high school, I struggled with math. I ' d heard about universities holding huge classes in auditoriums and it concerned me, " senior Samuel Davis said. Attending a smaller college at first often made it possible for transfer students to enroll into the college with a higher grade point average. Thus, in their junior and senior years, transfer students concentrated on their field of study rather than on struggling to raise their GPA. The arrival to a new and much larger school was a different transition for some. The University recognized this and aided transfers in their adjustment. Transfer students were assigned their own orientation dates and the activities catered to their needs. " I was excited about coming to FSU but I was also sad about leaving my friends. I worried that I would have trouble meeting people. At orientation, we were placed in groups and played silly, fun games. It was hard not to make friends, " senior Daishara Jimenez said. Established as a residency for transfer students, Cawthon Hall became " a home away from home " for many. In addition to the usual staff of Resident Assistants, the hall provided each floor with a Transfer Student Assistant. Although a transfer student may have considered living in an apartment Cawthon Hall provided the stability that some students wanted. T S A ' s were former transfer students and understood the anxieties of being in an unfamiliar place. They provided the new residents with information concerning academics, campus activities and locations, the Tallahassee area and any other helpful advice. Most transfers adjusted quickly and by the end of their first semester, felt as though they had been here for years. " Although I didn ' t attend FSU for four years, I was as much o( a Seminole fan as anyone on campus, " Schwinger said. 72 Academics : ' ;-,,■ Photo by Vanessa Crockett a ...

Transfers 73 President of National Geographic was so impressed with our Florida Atlas and the fact that is was produced with such excellence... " -Professor Edward Fernald A member of the Cartography Lab team works on the latest map project. The use of light tables, dark rooms and special cutting instruments aided the cartographers in making maps. The art of map-making was a special talent, not known to many. y 74 Academics Photo by Ayanna Luney The Bellamy Building was one of the most active spots on campus, serving as the mecca for all social science majors. With many students rushing in and out of classrooms, few noticed the inconspicuous door that led to the Cartography Lah. Others who did occasionally pass hy it wondered what the word cartography meant. Indeed it was a topic to be avoided. No one wanted to ask — " was it something I should know about? " Did everyone else (besides geography majors) know what cartography entailed? Perhaps if everyone knew that the cartography lab was an interesting place where maps were drawn and created, more attention would be given to it. In the early 1970 ' s Dr. Edward Fernald, geography professor, was the central figure in instituting a cartography lab within the University. The lab would be a part of the Florida Resources and Environment Analysis Center (FREAC). The Cartography lab became its own separate service department within the University, although it worked closely on occasion with the Geography Department. For this reason the non-academic lab was housed in the Bellamy building, amidst all of the social sciences. " It was this idea of providing for local, state and federal governments the resources we had (in correspondence with geography) at our disposal that instituted a cartography lab, " Director of Cartography Peter Krafft said. The traditional aspect of cartography included a very time- consuming and skilled job of hand- cutting geographical line images onto film (like winding rivers). The whole process was photomechanical, using light tables and darkrooms to copy the images over. The past 10 years have inevitably brought about the role of the computer to cartography, enabling the transition from the tedious process to a quicker, more efficient one. The University was now equipped with computers and laser printers, and the process of establishing multimedia CD ROM into the lab was developing. While the computers saved a lot of space and materials for the cartographers, the University ' s output devices were not big enough. Much of the data had to be sent away to be printed. In addition the computers would not allow for the processing of anything with large format. " We are presently doing work on putting CD ROM into the lab for the process of making the Florida Atlas, " Director of Cartography Jim Anderson said. " It is a multimedia project that will be circulated to all Florida schools. " It was a great effort for the cartographers to adapt to the " new " computerized way of making maps. There were indeed still benefits of using the traditional methods. However one of the benefits of the computers came with the necessary updating of certain maps. Now, any landscaping changes, additional roads, bridges or waterways and other changes could be accomplished easier on the computer. Most importantly the statistical maps processed by the lab were always changing with new data and information. Throughout the years students have been able to become involved at the Cartography lab, learning the necessary skills Photo hy Ayanna Luney Becky Wikes and Laurie Molina study the computer monitor. Cartography was quickly being transformed from a hands-on process to one of computer graphics. This quickened the process of making maps, as computer programs could do the work for the cartographer. by Jennifer wiand Cartography Lab 75 A student intensly studies the computet monitor for differences in the geographical landscapes of the state of F 1 o t i d a .

The University offered Directed Individual Studies and student assistantships; however with the arrival of computers in the lab the cartographers needed to become familiarized with the process before training students. With new projects coming to the University the cartographers were hopeful in once again hosting students in the lab. The Federal government had hired the Cartography Lab to do various jobs, including volumes of maps, graphs and graphics of land water hydraulics. The University of Kansas, the University of Wisconsin and Florida State University housed the only university cartographic labs in the nation. The FROM PAGE 75 cartographers also did maps for professors ' publications. Perhaps the most important accomplishment of the lab was the yearly publication of the Florida Health Care Atlas for HRS and the Florida Atlas, in which all maps, statistical graphs and graphics were produced at the University. " There is a real and sophisticated talent in being able to transfer table data into a map, " Fernald said. " The cartographers do high quality work while training students, who in turn get experience and funding. The President of National Geographic was so impressed with our Florida Atlas and the fact that it was produced with such excellence at a state university. " Photo hy Ayanna Luney Becky Wikes and Laurie Molina wait for data to be processes by the Cartography Lab computer.

In 1990, Ann Reinking added motherhood to her resume. A year after her son was born, Reinking became the artistic director of the Musical Theater Project of Tampa. 78 Academics Photo courtesy of FSU School of Theatre The University has always prided itself on the hard work and dedication its musical theater majors brought to the stage. The stage was a place where raw talent could be transformed into something special; sparkles gleamed through these diamonds in the rough. Perhaps the visions of stardom and making it big in show business became a little more defined for musical theater majors during spring semester . Those who dreamt of Broadway becoming their future place of business now had an opportunity to learn the tools and tricks of the trade. They had the best Broadway had to offer, they had the guidance of Ann Reinking. The theatre department was fortunate enough to be the host of Reinking ' s talent, experience and time for six weeks. The actor, dancer, singer and choreograher came to the University to occupy the Hoffman Eminent Scholar Chair in theater. Reinking was the eigth recipient of the Chair, named after the bequest of $600,000 from the estate of Maximillian and Marion Hoffman. A grant of $400,000 was added from the Florida Legislature to make the endowment one million dollars. The Chair was established after the deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman. The benevolent couple shared a love of theater and visited Florida often. They wanted to see the future of dramatics well established in Florida. " The Hoffman Chair has created a legacy for excellence, " Dean of the School of Theatre Gil Lazier said, " setting a standard for the creation of subsequent Eminent Scholar Chairs. " Reinking became established as one of the most talented and accomplished entertainers, with a repertoire impressive enough to win her well- deserved fame. The talented woman started dancing at the age of 11 and continued until age 18 when she went to Broadway to break into the business. She seemed oblivious to the possible trials and uncertainties she might encounter trying to establish a name for herself in New York City. " All the awful terrible things mothers tell you about New York — the dirt, the danger, the decadence — simply flew over my head, " Reinking said. " I was like Mr. Magoo driving right on through it. " Obviously, Reinking had made her mark on Broadway, as her list of credentials grew with her fame over the years. Her work included " Fiddler on the Roof, " " Cabaret, " " Pippin, " and " A Chorus Line. " She received Tony nominations for her stellar performances in " Dancin " and " Goodtime Charley. " Her career not only included Broadway hits but also film roles in " Movie, Movie, " " All That Jazz, " " Annie " and " Micki and Maude. " Reinking continued to establish herself by choreographing " Pal Joey, " " Suite to Sondheim, " " Simple Gifts " and " Chicago. " " Pal Joey " won her a Jefferson Award. In 1 990 Reinking pursued a career in motherhood after the birth of her son. However, she continued to choreograph. In 1991 she became the artistic director of the Musical Theater Project of Tampa, a center to train and educate young theater talent. There she earned the 1992 Dance Educators of America Award. She said she felt that part of being a dancer was teaching and passing Photo by Ayanna Luney Assistant Secretary of State Joel Sole awards Ann Reinking with the Ambassador of Arts Award.

The movie was a success across the nation and around the world. The story was originally brought to the stage and had a long run on Broadway. Starring in " All That Jazz " in 1979, Ann Reinking worked with actors Roy Scheider, Jessica Lange, Leland Palmer and Ben Vereen. The film called for Reinking to utilize her expertise as a dancer as well as her acting skills. Reinking was a veteran Broadway performer. 80 Academics CONTINUED the tradition along. During her six weeks residency at the University, Reinking shared her talent and knowledge of show business. She taught masters classes and conducted auditions and rehearsals. She also choreographed and directed a musical theater review in which her students could perform what they had learned. Perhaps the most important element taught by Reinking was not how to dance or sing but how to concentrate on the job one was doing, not the glamour that want along with it. " Believing in the goodness of your work, not the applause is what ' s important, " FROM PAGE 78 Reinking said. Indeed the Tallahassee community beleived in the goodness of Reinking ' s work. While in residency she received a key to the city of Tallahassee from Mayor Dorothy Inman-Crews, an award given only to the most distingushed persons of the community. She also was given the Ambassador of Arts Award, for the cultural growth of the arts. The Assistant Secretary of State Joel Sole gave Reinking the award. " Ann is intense, she knows what she wants but she ' s very sensitive, " sophomore musical theatre major Montego Glover said. " She is very insightful, very professional and to see her work is extremely rivoting.

" - Melvin Stith The planning of the program brought the business school and the Center for Professional Development together. The center also sponsored the annual Distinguished Lecture Series, speaker lunches and various conferences for the University. 82 Academics Photo by Ayanna Luney For years the University ' s business school has provided a curriculum for students looking to get their start in marketing, management and other areas of the job market. The school began developing a new program, the Executive Management Program, to help middle managers already in the business world keep their competitive edge. The program was developed along with the Center for Professional Development. There was a need for middle managers to keep up with changing times. With interest in executive positions increasing, there was a demand for technical and leadership skills to be further developed. Effectiveness in a global market became a must. The Executive Management Program was developed to be a seminar that focused on these and other issues such as making better decisions, understanding and using financial statements and managing diversity in the modern work place. " We want to focus on what the future work force will be like and how to manage the diverse issue that will emerge, " Melvin Stith, dean of the College of Business, said. He continued on, saying that the employees and employers of today needed to be more aware of new issues as they arose. " It ' s not just ethnic diversity, it ' s also cutting edge issues such as paternity leave, aging workers, the increasing numbers of disabled employees and the multinational nature of the labor, " Stith said. The program was an original idea and would make efforts to address common problems in the work place. It was designed through a partnership made of business professors and executives from companies including State Farm Insurance, First Union Bank and Gulf Power Company. " We ' re not just teaching the standard executive management program. We believe we ' re responding to the private enterprise needs of Florida and the nation, " Bill Anthony, management professor and director of the program, said. Candidates for the program were to be nominated by their organization. The criteria for selection would include work experience, employer recommendation and the applicability of the program to the professional career of the candidate. A bachelor ' s degree would be preferred among the candidates. As business took on a more technological edge and competition for jobs increased, the program provided managers with the necessary education in an ever- changing job market. The program was scheduled for a week in February to focus on the changes in the labor force. The program in March was developed to concentrate on realizing a competitive edge by building a quality management program. The program in April would focus on formulating and executing strategy. Each of the three sections was scheduled to last one week. Originally scheduled for 1994, the program will run in 1995. The program will be the first program of its kind at the state university level. Photo by Ayanna Luney The Turnbull Center houses the Center for Professional Development.

The Hall was just newly renovated from its original layout. Many of the alumni fondly remembered living in the dormitory and all of the restrictions that came along with it. travis hopkins Most students on campus never got the chance to learn firsthand about the history that surrounded the University. However when the Class of 1 944 returned to its alma matter on April 15 and 16, several students from the Student Alumni Association got to learn about a slice of the past of the Florida State College for Women. " One of the first changes the ladies noticed, aside from the University ' s coeducational atmosphere, was the fact that the campus had quadrupled in size, " SAA member Leslie Hoh said. " I guess they didn ' t expect so much to change in 50 years. " One of the most notable differences between FSCW and FSU was the amount of freedom that the students had in their ability to come and go as they pleased. In 1944, strict rules for the young women were listed in the FSCW handbook including: " Room Limits: Students are expected to be in their rooms by third light flash and may not leave before 7 a.m. except in the case of an emergency. Such emergencies require written permission from the residence counselor. " SAA president Ashley Fillingim was astonished that the students of that time could follow such stringent limitations. " It amazes me that these ladies didn ' t go crazy having such restrictions placed upon them. However, if they were anything like I am, I am positive some of them broke the rules to stay out later, " Fillingim said. One thing about the University that had not changed much since the class of 1944 departed was the Sweet Shop, which was still located in its original home on Jefferson Street. FSCW students often could scrape up enough money for a College Girl ' s Special, a 65 cent steak and potatoes meal. " From what the ladies told me, they would sneak out of their rooms with a trench coat over their pajamas to go have coffee over at the Sweet Shop, " SAA member Rhett Bullard said. " But I think they were really sneaking out to meet the pilots being trained at the nearby Dale Mabry Army Air Field. " The part of campus that attracted the biggest attention form the alumni was the newly renovated Jennie Murphree dormitory. " Most of the ladies who lived in Jennie Murphree Hall back in the forties remembered the bottom floor being called the alphabet level and how that was where the ' cool ' girls lived, " SAA member Donna Davis said. " Although they were impressed by how much the dorm has changed, I think they were a little disappointed that the alphabet level is now ' floor zero. ' To them, it just doesn ' t seem as special anymore. " One thing that students discovered while visiting with the Class of 1944 was that it did not matter if the school was called " FSCW " or " FSU " because the pride and spirit in the college was uniform across the years. " Whether students were cheering on the Odd-Even teams or the Seminole football team, I think that the spirit of belonging to the special place this university is gives anyone who has ever attended a class here a real sense of pride, " SAA member Courtney Chase said. f I 84 Academics . . ■ 11 ;h shop " I think that the spirit of belonging to the special place this University is gives anyone v ho has ever attended a class here a real sense of pride. ?? -Courtney Chase The Sweet Shop, after being renovated in 1 99 1 , serves as a place to eat and relax for many students.

" - Dick Dominguez Jan Zhang works on modifying a program on the electrochemical surface process. The Super Computer Research Institute was located on the top floor of the Dirac Science Library. The University ' s SCRI was the first of its kind to be dedicated entirely to university research. 86 Academics I I ' IIIIII! " In 1984 the United States Department of Energy passed a proposal funded by Congress to establish an institute in which scientists could use super computers to do intense research. The Super Computations Research Institute was erected on the top floor of the Dirac Science Library at the University. SCRI became a mecca to the science world, opening up doors to researchers and scientists of every field of scientific study to come and experience the amazing power of the computers. SCRI was the first federally funded supercomputer program in the United States devoted to university research. There was no classified work done at SCRI, thus enabling anyone to visit and explore the institute ' s research. Professors, students, researchers and more than 40 scientists from all over the world had access to the supercomputers as they related to new studies, computational projects and technological breakthroughs. " We are one of the few universities which provides access to supercomputers for faculty, " SCRI Education Outreach Program employee Richard Skoonberg said. " It strengthens the University ' s ability to do research in the basic scientific fields. " The institute contained three high performance supercomputer systems, which included thousands of simple computers that simultaneously operated on the same problem. Another computer was the CRAY YMP which processed 264 megabytes of memory. The diversity of the different branches of scientific research included theoretical high energy physics. Perhaps the most intriguing discovery of science at SCRI was the invention of SciAn, a three-dimensional animation package which allowed the computer viewer to visualize data. SciAn used millions of pieces of information to formulate pictures in which the user could rotate and highlight the objects on the screen. Many aspects of scientific study were improved tremendously as the visualization of thunderstorms from Doppler radar could be compared to actual data. The comparisons were made into better estimations of weather patterns. Research in Alzheimer ' s disease enabled scientists to visualize EEC brain wave patterns of Alzheimers patients and to compare them to those of normal, healthy people. This led to early diagnosis and treatment of the disease. SciAn was free to all researchers, businesses and universities and it was user- friendly. " Researchers using SciAn can open our eyes and minds to new visions of our world and beyond, " SCRI video spokesperson Rick Dominguez said. " We at SCRI understand the need of putting new tools in the hands of researchers in the field. " SCRI benefited the scientific community by providing a free summer workshop for high school science and math teachers during the summer. The seminar taught the teachers how to use the supercomputers in research and to develop computer examples for the use in high school science class rooms. The two week seminar was headed by computational scientists. Photo by Ayanna Luney SCRI gives tours to different groups and schools throughout the year.

Lick resigned his position in late August during the beginning of the fall semester. Jennifer wiand As the new school year commenced in late August, many students were unaware of the administrative changes taking place at the University. The excitement of football season, fall rush and new classes left students with little time to keep up with local politics. Yet when the news hit Tallahassee that University President Dr. Dale Lick was applying for the presidency at Michigan State University, it captured the students ' attention. After being the president of the University for only two years, Lick ' s resume went to his Michigan alma mater. This career move was a shock to all and it sparked muc h controversy within the University community. Lick withdrew from the campaign after a haunting remark he had made about black athletes in 1989 surfaced in Michigan. Although Lick apologized for the remarks, he had lost favor as a semifinalist for the presidential position. Back in Tallahassee, Lick ' s ordeal in Michigan came as a surprise to the Chancellor and Board of Regents, who supported and oversaw such positions as the presidency. From that point on Lick ' s presidency seemed to dissipate. While some people viewed Lick as a competent and active leader, others felt betrayed by the president ' s search for alternative employment. President Lick resigned on Aug. 31, after political controversy seemed to overpower the normal flow of administrative decisions and actions. The feelings were mixed as some felt that Lick was forced to resign. Others felt that his application at another CONTINUED school swayed his support locally. Regardless o( opinions and events, Lick ' s two-year term in office was eventful. He was noted for improving the University ' s race and gender diversity, including appointing the first female vice president. He also reached nearly halt of the $200 million Capital Campaign five year goal. " I think that we ' re going to miss him. I think they ' ve blown everything all out of proportion, " senior Dave Azzarito said. " And I think we ' ll have to see if we can find someone comparable. " The BOR appointed Dr. Bernie Sliger to be the interim president of the University until a new president was chosen. Sliger had served as the University ' s president for 14 years before Lick ' s presidency. Sliger ' s main objective during his short term was to continue the fund raising campaign that Lick had began. Sliger ' s experience as president provided a model for others to follow. " A president has to have lots of energy, be able to read fast and delegate, " Sliger said. " People ' s individual talents help as well, like being an economist or a history professor. Both would add different aspects to the job. " During his stint as interim president, Sliger underwent major surgery for his cardiovascular heart disease. The operation was to bypass seven obstructed arteries around his heart. In addition he suffered a minor stroke during his surgical recovery. These events impaired Sliger ' s ability to immediately act as interim president, delaying the University fund raising yet again.

The search for a new president, although delayed, continued midway through the fall semester. Two committees were formed in order to help find and choose the new president, one being the Regents Selection Committee and the other the Search Advisory Committee. The group was extremely diverse, with the likes of Carl Sagan, Lani Guinier, T.K. Wetherell and Wayne Huizenga filling out the applications. By the end of November, the list of candidates was narrowed FROM PAGE 88 to 10. The candidates were interviewed publicly and their characteristics and qualifications were thoroughly researched and evaluated. Upon voting and reaching a unanimous final agreement, Dr. Sandy D ' Alemberte was elected the University ' s 12th president. D ' Alemberte ' s list of credentials included serving in the House of Representatives and as the President of the American Bar Association.

To help solve these problems, some hired security guards. An Alpha Gamma Delta sister uses the Sonitrol code to secure the house again for the night. Sonitrol was used in many of the Greek houses.

The larger fraternities and sororities accepted anywhere from eight to twenty new pledges and the smaller chapters, around three to four. It was not an easy task to become a member of the PanGreek system. Although it was left up to each fraternity or sorority to decide what its qualification were, most wanted their pledges to be active in the community and most importantly good representatives. Some chapters even went so far as to request transcripts and GPA ' s. They wanted to be assured that the person they were accepting into their organization would not only be a lifetime member but also a loyal friend. " Becoming a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority has been a tremendous growing- up experience for me; I have learned not only to think of myself, but to think of my sisters and my community, " AKA sister Hilda Cenecharles said. " Knowing that I have so many sorority sisters that I can always depend on is a special gift that I am so grateful to have received. I hope my sorority sisters know that they can always depend on me as I know I can always depend on them. " O tanding proudly, the line poses for a picture as new brothers. The brotherhood and sisterhood of these fraternitites and sororities lasted a lifetime. The selection process in the PanGreek system was initially placed in the hands of the individual rushee rather than the fraternity or sorority. Once initiations took place there were celebrations to welcome the new members. Photo by Richard Johnson Otepping has been a longtime tradition and way of introduction to the public for brothers.

The Act officially became effective on Oct. 1, 1992 and smoking was prohibited in any university facility. However, University officials were under the impression that student residential facilities would be unaffected. This did not turn out to be true after the HRS analysis clarified the definition of an " educational facility. " There were to be no smoking in any building owned or leased by the University. With this delay in the comprehensive definition, the statute did not go into motion until fall 1993. Various opinions surrounded the controversy of the Clean Air Act and its influence upon campus. Primarily, student smokers in residential halls had the greatest impact. Non-smokers held their own opinions, detailing the experience when living in residential halls. " It bothered all of us non-smokers having smokers being able to smoke in the dorms. It was a nuisance and the smell was so obvious, " Brenna Coyne, a junior physics major, said, recalling when she lived in a dorm her first two years. The Act was proposed for the protection of non-smokers from secondary smoke, which studies have proved could be harmful to others. Not all smokers were distraught over the new ordinance. David Rowland, a freshman business major, believed that the statute was only " courteous " for others and that even though he had been inconvenienced by having to smoke outside, it was only right. The Act influenced everyone, including the faculty. " It doesn ' t bother me much about the Act. In fact, I think it is for a good cause but perhaps a bit annoying having to go outside to smoke in the middle of doing work, " professor Gretchen Thies said.

It was effecting, among others, young adults in the primes of their lives. On the University ' s campus, Thagard Student Health Center responded to a need for appropriate testing for the HIV AIDS virus. During the 1994 spring semester a pilot test was started to help students find out if they were HIV AIDS positive in a confidential manner and at a low cost. The testing was only $5 as opposed to $ 1 5 and the results were kept confidential only for the tested student ' s knowledge. The first step in the testing was the payment in which the student received a receipt with their transaction number on it. This transaction number became their identification number. The patient made an appointment and then was counseled by a professional. The patient ' s name and social security number were taken down on an index card for counseling purposes and kept locked when not used. After the counseling was done the patient had the blood taken. The nameless test result were then given to the nurse to give to the counselors. If the test results were positive or indeterminate, a Western Blot would be done to confirm results. The final test results were given verbally to the student and all information was kept confidential. This confidentiality was the key difference between the present testing provided and the past HIV AIDS testing given at the health center. " We will continue the nameless testing if at all possible, " Dr. Jan Daly, director of the Thagard Student Health Center, said. " The nameless testing will keep all information available to only the tested student and help us better serve the campus. " The pilot test that the health center provided helped students to obtain HIV AIDS testing at a low cost while also trying to keep testing confidential.

They would no longer have to bartend until the wee hours of the morning or work as sales clerk at the mall on weekends. " I looked forward to making money at a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, " senior Sherry Baker said. " But when I finished school, I couldn ' t seem to find that job. Everyone seemed to want experience that I couldn ' t possibly have already. " Unfortunately, many graduating seniors experienced similar disappointment. Graduates eagerly circulated resumes to numerous businesses and institutions but most received the standard letter of " thank you for your interest but we have no openings at this time. " Although the job prospects were grim, graduates did have several choices. One option was to return to school; some graduates felt that a higher degree would increase the likelihood of securing a job. Others did not have further education as an option. An alternative to returning to school was relocation to another city or, in most cases, another state. While Florida ' s economy was not prospering, other areas of the country had more favorable job markets. Graduates who were more willing to relocate were more likely to find a job in their field of study than those who limited themselves to a particular area. " I am moving home to New Jersey for a job, " senior Mike Masterman-Smith said. " However, it ' s difficult to leave everything I have here. " Many graduates who did not return to school or relocate chose to take any job until a better one surfaced. Many people could not withstand months of unemployment and they continued to send out resumes and read the help wanted ads. " It took me almost a year to find the job I was looking for. You have to have a lot of patience and never stop trying, " alumnus Tracey Gunter-Rosen said. By Candice Case « ■:.

" Those were the fatal words that everyone dreaded hearing but so often had to say to others. The topic of men and women being friends boggled mankind and has even been the topic of movies such as When Harry Met Sally. " I think men and women can just be friends, " freshman Wendi Garfinkel said. " Jason and I are really close and we see each other as brother and sister. I think the closer the friendship is, the more a person just wants friendship. " Most likely, during the course of a college career, a person must tell another they had no interest in a relationship. Senior Ben Beasley had to tell a girl he just wanted to be friends after he realized they had nothing in common. " There was a girl I was interested in last semester but I realized we had nothing in common, " Beasley said. " She would change her opinion toward mine even if she didn ' t believe in what she was saying. Even after I told her I didn ' t want to date her she would call me, ask for a wrong number and then ask me how school was doing. It was like a fatal attraction. I think men and women can be friends but as a guy, there will always be an attraction deep down inside. Maybe the guy will never pursue it but there will always be a slight attraction. " " Guys can be friends with girls but I found out it was usually because they didn ' t work out as a couple. There was a guy I dated for a while but we still kept in touch even after I left for school. We are just friends now but it ' s weird because he will tell me about the girls he likes. It ' s awkward because I was the girl he used to talk about to his friends and now I ' m the friend he talks to about his girlfriends. " Best friends or lovers; sometimes it was hard to differentiate. At one point of life students found themselves just wanting a platonic relationship while at others they were looking to find a soul mate. " I think best friends would make the best marriages, " Beasley said.

Beavis and Butthead ' s controversial MTV cartoon and music video show either offended students or gave them something different to look forward to on late night TV programming. Beavis and Butthead were two underweight, braced-faced, sexually frustrated American boys who grossed-out viewers by picking their noses, by obsessing over bodily functions and by generally being crude. " I think they are extremely offensive, " junior Shannon Hopkins said. " They are a waste of TV air space. Who wants to watch two boys belch for a half an hour? " Regardless of opinion, the influence they had effected the campus. Whether you heard a guy in your class imitating their distinguishable laugh or you owned a Seminole Beavis and Butthead t-shirt, evidence of the cartoon was everywhere. " Miami sucks, " the personalized University t-shirts read. " Yeh, yeh... Seminoles are cool " was the reply. " I can ' t believe that educated people wear t-shirts displaying them, they are so asinine, " junior Ann Kemper said. " But I guess it ' s just a trend that will hopefully pass quickly. " Perhaps the reason why college students found the cartoon so entertaining was because it was a reminder of their own high school days. Whether you were a Beavis, a Butthead or just knew and despised one, the cartoon hit home. Some male students identified with after-school days of eating junk food, watching videos and getting into mischievous trouble. " My friends and I look forward to seeing the show because it is a hysterical amplification of what it was like to be immature, reckless and hated by most adults, " junior Greg Rheders said. " The show is simply a social documentary of the way some boys grow up in our society. " " Uh, huh uh uh.. .school sucks. " By Jennifer M.

The conference theme was " Traditions from the Past, Shaping the Future " and it focused on the diverse roles modern women play. The University sponsored conference, organized by students, was free to all interested students. " The conference was a great opportunity for the students not only to plan but also to participate in learning from other people, " Advisor Barbara Prevost said. The conference consisted of three different tracks in which participants could choose which three lectures she wanted to attend. The lectures ranged from various topics such as " Gender Communications in the Workplace " to " Images of Women on Campus. " After each lecture the conference participants were able to discuss the topics further in a question and answer period with the speaker. " I was happy how a lot of the participants questioned and utilized the speakers for their knowledge and all that they had to offer, " Chairwoman Kandi Kelly said. The three tracks were followed by a luncheon and lecture with keynote speaker Julie Montanaro, an anchorwoman from WCTV Channel 6. Karen Moore, president and owner of Moore Consulting Group, lead the closing session with a lecture on " Marketing Yourself to get the Job you Want. " Moore gave helpful tips on the interviewing and networking skills needed to land a job. " The Conference was such a wonderful experience. Not only was it a lot of fun but also very informative, " sophomore Amber Dennie said. " I walked away with so much useful knowledge about finding a job and just being a modern woman.

The grapefruit diet, diet pills and books like Thin is In were the beginning of what formed current views on personal weight and the American idea of beauty in the nineties. " It ' s hard to be a young women and not feel the pressure to look thin, " junior Kimberly Woodard said. So called " waif models " covered the pages of catalogs and magazines, the screens of televisions and adorned the runways all over the world. As the ultra thin look became more and more popular there was once again a rise in unhealthy weight loss. Designers, such as Calvin Klein, were belived to have accentuated the problem by employing the models that seemed to fall into this category. " Some people may call me old fashioned, but I like a little meat on the bones, " junior Paul Schamoun said. " Too thin is very unattractive to me, and I tell my sister when she starts in on her weight to just relax, because guys don ' t want you too too thin. " As a result of the popularity of thinness increased, so did the cases of eating disorders. Bulimia, or the binge- purge syndrome, and anorexia, self starvation plagued campuses across the country and all over the world. On campus, the problem became so noticeable that Thagard Health Center opened a nutritional counseling center and offered support groups for the victims of eating disorders. Signs of eating disorders were nervousness, fatigue, excessive obsession with eating or weight, hair loss, gray tones to the skin and, most obviously, weight fluctuation. " I had a friend that I had always suspected had a problem and I later found out that she was diagnosed during her sophomore year, " junior Melanie Masiello said.

Degree was not a degree that was recognized by the board of regents or by the president of any university. There were also no official classes to take. The only thing that was needed was for Ms. Right to meet Mr. Right and for " the question " to be popped before they officially graduated. (The question where, as tradition would have it, the guy gets down on one knee to ask the girl for her hand in marriage.) Some students came to school for the sole purpose of finding Mr. or Mrs. Right. Their main objective while in college was to leave married. " Sure, I ' m looking for a husband, " junior Shannon Hopkins said. " My parents always told me ' never date a guy you would not marry. ' I took them literally. " The M.R.S. Degree was also known as being married right out of college. The job as a housewife was guaranteed and could be taken by itself or combined with the career world. In the day of the career woman and Hillary Rodham Clinton, standing by a man was an idea that had became somewhat obsolete. However, meeting Mr. or Ms. Right was the beginning of a new life together with someone one loves and not to be considered as an ending to a career. " Since I have become engaged I have become more focused on my studies and I find myself studying harder and making better grades than before I was engaged, " junior Tracy Hammer. Planning a wedding and trying to juggle school took careful time management especially if the M.R.S. Degree came unexpectantly while obtaining a Bachelor ' s or Master ' s degree. Some people found the M.R.S. Degree as a positive incentive to college rather than the negative connotation that sometimes accompanies the saying " Mrs. Degree " .

Whether you wanted to wine and dine him or her or just go to a movie, there was always the pressure to make yourself appear available and irresistible. To some making a good impression depended on spending lots of money. This presented a problem for most college students, however, who did not have large budgets. " When I take a girl out for the first time I would love to be able to take her to a really nice place, " freshman Michael Nesser said. " Yet how can I when I can barely afford to feed myself? " Other students took more casual attitudes about the expensive dating dilemma. Some did not see the need to spend an unusually large amount of cash. Some students viewed spending excessive amounts of money on a date as impractical. With most all dating prospects also being in college, extra money was not necessarily lying around waiting to be spent. A nice, casual dinner and maybe a movie seemed to be a happy medium for all. " I would never expect to be taken out to the most expensive restaurant in town, on a first date, " junior Chris Perkins said. " The more casual, the more comfortable. Besides, I don ' t know one person in college who has the money to throw around on trying to impress someone. " For those couples who made it beyond the first date, having a small budget did not seem to be as much of a problem. Some couples, once established found going dutch or taking turns treating to be very comfortable. It took pressure off of one partner constantly providing the funds for fun. In addition some couples enjoyed just renting a movie or cooking dinner together. " Some of the best times my boyfriend and I have spent together have been just watching a movie and snuggling on the couch, " junior Shannon Hopkins said. By Jennifer M.

He came here in 1969 from the New Jersey area, after a stint on a milk route. Every day, except in severe weather, Clark could be found at his hot dog stand, making friends with the students and faculty while serving up nourishment. Clark ' s history was as diverse as his menu items. Upon arriving in Florida, " with four sons, a cat, dog and a wife, " Clark discovered that his steam boiler ' s license was useless. Jobs were already taken by others coming into the state so he worked at Morgan Yacht Co. as a laborer for the Disney submarines and vessels. When Clark ' s wife became unemployed, his wife and son chipped in and his pride and joy, Relish the Thought, was born. After working on corners, simple research led him to sell at the University. Interestingly, Clark was one of the first independent vendors to come to campus in quite a while. Clark ' s combination of Shofar hot dogs, lively chatter with customers and opinionated politics was what made Relish the Thought the cozy corner between Strozier and Bellamy. Clark said that the strangest things people did to their hot dogs were lining the dog with dots of mustard and twirling everything around in the bun. But, Clark confided, the best part of his job was that he would do whatever combinations his customers want. Clark described the students as " great, " and said that he admired the diversity here. " Nothing ' s free, you ' ve got to work for it, " Clark said. It was his policy and advice for students. Photo by Ayanna Luney Jack Clark serves a hot dog to a student on a warm spring afternoon.

They wanted to go to a place that was different, a place where " everybody knows your name. ..and they ' re always glad you came. " So they went to The Kettle, a local greasy spoon on North Monroe. After searching quite a while for a place that would allow students to spread out their books and get comfortable, a few students discovered The Kettle and put their claim on the booths. " The Kettle was nice because we could drink and eat to keep us awake, " Kim Berg said. " They don ' t allow us to eat food in the library and we could talk a lot more at a restaurant. " Some students liked The Kettle because it was a change in atmosphere. Aside from being able to eat and study The Kettle was open all night long. For some this was a bonus since the library closed nearly after midnight and the dorms provided the temptation to go to bed. " It was a better environment than the dorm to study in, " Melanie Nasiello said. " And it kept you up all night long. " Some restaurant studiers said they thought The Kettle was a nice, neutral place to meet outside the classroom if you did not know people in your classes very well. However, everyone seemed to know each other at The Kettle as there were many regulars. " There were some distractions but everyone left you alone to study unless you wanted to have a study break, " Laura Koehler, a regular at The Kettle, said. Sadly, The Kettle closed its doors in 1993, as they had lost too much money. Perhaps the students had studied too much and not eaten enough. At least the coffee was good. r% Photo by Steve Stiber Dave Romine studies for a midterm at Denny ' s. Some students believed that was the only way they could get quiet. By Jennifer M.

Lauderdale, FL . b v FRIEND or During the summer, students were sent a pamphlet from the University housing office. This pamphlet included a description of the residence halls, information regarding air conditioning, the prices and, most importantly, a questionnaire about their living habits. Some students requested to room with someone they were already acquainted with while others assumed that the questionnaire would automatically place them in a room with their perfect match. " I get along great with my roommate and we always work out together in the Leach Center, " freshman Aaron Woodie said. However, this was not always the case. While the housing office did their best to accommodate each and every student, not every student was satisfied with their roommates. Roommate difficulties often began when mates of the opposite sex started staying over and inconveniencing the other roommate. The visitation rights in each residence hall varied and some students chose to disobey the rules altogether. " I spent all year arguing and literally fist-fighting with my roommate, " freshman Marc Favreau said. Rooming situations that were unsuccessful usually also proved very hurtful, as horrible insults were easily tossed around. Sometimes it ended with fines or in court with the judicial board. " I really disliked my roommate because there was a conflict oi interest and so I just moved out, " sophomore Karen Guilbeaux said. In order to get along with roommates, students soon realized that compromise needed to be established and practiced. It also proved to be a good lesson in learning to accept that which was different from what you knew, a useful skill in today ' s world. When students left home and moved on to college, they eventually came across someone whom they did not particularly care for. Living situations were much easier if both roommates respected the other person ' s rights and opinions. 4 Photo by Vanessa Crockett Two roomates discuss their plans for the weekend.

Cars adorned with shoe polish reading " New Orleans Bound " lined the highway. A sense of excitement filled the air as I- 10 led into the historic city. As the traffic grew thicker, the electricity in the air reached into the back seats of the crowded cars luring passengers into the state of restlessness. The experience of Mardi Gras finally arrived. Contrary to popular belief, Mardi Gras was actually a religious holiday. In French it meant " Fat Tuesday " and it was the last day of festivities before Ash Wednesday, which marked the arrival of the fasting days of Lent. Ash Wednesday was preceded by two weeks of parades and parties. " It was a great time to let loose and be free of any inhibitions, " junior Stephanie Bortz said. " I didn ' t worry about anything. I just let the crowd carry me. " Most people were mainly concerned with coming across their next drink, finding an available bathroom and of course, getting the traditional Mardi Gras beads. " I couldn ' t believe the things people were doing just to get plastic beads, " sophomore Paul Lederman said. " When they were thrown off the floats, people suddenly turned into savages. " Mardi Gras drew such an immense crowd that many people could be found sleeping in cars, on the sidewalk or wherever the night brought them. " Last year I ended up sleeping on a park bench, " junior Thomas Sterges said. " So this year we made reservations a year in advance. The Fairmont Hotel proved to be a definite setup. " As the experience of Mardi Gras came to an end, the cars once again lined the highway. Stories of the weekend faded into memories until only the sound of beads dangling from the rear view mirror could be heard.

There were numerous places on campus to make friends, such as the Union, Landis Green or in class. Local bars and dance clubs were also popular " pick up " sites. However, many students tired of the familiar scenes and faces and looked elsewhere for friends and dates. " I met girls at the laundromat, " junior Dave Merenstien said. " It wasn ' t intentional but I noticed other students were there so I took advantage of it. " Since the majority of students rented apartments or lived on campus, they were without the luxury of a personal washer and dryer. Many students frequented laundromats but some admitted it was not the place to find an ideal date. " My friends and I usually did laundry in the middle of the night, " senior Michelle David said. " There were the strangest people out at that time. I would not consider dating anyone I ' d met there. " Besides looking for dates, students reported doing a variety of tasks at the laundromat. Some completed home work assignments, wrote letters or listened to their walkman. " I spent most of my time digging around the bottom of my purse and through all of my dirty clothes pockets looking for another quarter, " senior Melanie Leaman said. " I never had enough quarters. " Another favorite activity for laundromat-goers was people watching. Doing several loads of laundry took an hour or two, so there was plenty of time to observe others. " It was a pain loading up soap and all my baskets full of dirty clothes and heading to the laundromat, " junior Wendy Exely said. " But I never came home in a bad mood. Every trip was a unique experience. " Photo by Dody Perry A student prepares her wash in the August heat of her dorm. Most dorm laundry rooms were without airconditioning.

Instead of the traditional Saturday morning ceremony, University officials decided to add a Friday night service as well. About 2,600 students were expected to participate in the graduation ceremonies, enabling half to graduate on Friday and the other half on Saturday. This came as good news to most students and their families as the traditional ceremony was known to be very long and monotonous. The actual process of naming the graduates was cut in half. " It was certainly better having the two ceremonies. Even though it was still long it didn ' t seem as long as it used to, " graduating senior Laura Koehler said. " Everybody seemed to be a lot more relaxed and happy. " The break-up in the graduation ceremony also enabled each student to have more admission tickets for family and friends. Many times students had been unable to find enough tickets for their guests with the traditional graduation. " Students now get eight tickets instead of the usual four. This is wonderful, now we can bring more family or even grandparents and other extended family, " graduating senior Christine Guard said. Perhaps the greatest benefit of having two graduation celebrations was the increased availability of hotels throughout Tallahassee during graduation weekend. With one ceremony on Friday night, many students ' relatives only needed to stay in town the one night, leaving hotels on Saturday night open for the other half. " My parents and grandparents saw me graduate because they were able to reserve a hotel room. Hotels didn ' t seem to be as overbooked with the new graduation policy, " graduating senior Tara Hopkins said.

For the past 1 5 years Marriott had served the University through a cafeteria-type restaurant in the Union, yet it became apparent that students wanted more food choices and better quality. Starting last August the renovation and completion of all food services additions would take about three years. " It was time for a change. As we change in this new decade our eating habits change too, " retail manager of Marriott Anthony Zariv said. " Students want better value and better food. We can provide that. " The first changes last year occurred in what was the Union Cafe ' . Now named Crossroads Cafe ' , a new decor greeted the students as well as a Lucy Ho Oriental buffet. In the Downunder in the Union Rally ' s fast-food restaurant was added in underneath The Wild Pizza. Across the campus in the William Johnston Building Subcity replaced the old Trading Post, enabling students in the dorms on that side of campus to eat. Perhaps the biggest change in food service last year came in the form of the Tradewinds ' Pavilion. The new food court was located in the empty spaces in the Union. The three additions included: Carlos Peppers, a Mexican fast-food restaurant like Taco Bell, The Bagel Basket bagel and sandwich shop and a TCBY. The Pavilion received much business during the year as students found the restaurants to be more convenient. " I don ' t live on campus and normally I don ' t spend much time here, had all these new places been here before, maybe I would have, " senior Stephanie Snowden said. By fall of 1995 Marriott Food Services will have completed their additions to the campus. In the new University Center at the Doak Campbell Stadium a full food court including Pizza Hut and Miami Subs will be opened. The Seminole Food Court will replace the existing Union bookstore, and an ACC sports bar will be located above the Food Court. " It ' s time they gave students what students want, " senior Randy Locke said. " It ' s great that they will allow students to have more say in what they have available to eat. " ' .

" Administrators and students have taken notice of the attitudinal barriers that existed on campus and made positive changes throughout the University. Staff, faculty and students with disabilities have made tremendous headway in advocating their rights. For example, they were no longer labeled as " handicapped students " but as " students with disabilities, " which put the focus on the student rather than the disability. Efforts were made to include students with disabilities in all campus activities, from participation in organizations to attending athletic events and academic programs. The University was working to comply with the ADA and make reasonable accommodations for everyone, including architectural renovations and academic provisions. " It is the goal of ODSS to assure that FSU does not deny access to any student with a disability in any programs or services, " Director Robin Leach said. One of the projects aimed for inclusion of students with disabilities with other services provided by the University was the Coalition for Careers. " Dignity and respect, that ' s what everyone wants, " project manager Jim Costello said. CFC worked to empower individuals to be independent and to utilize the resources the Career Center had to offer. Dr. Stephen Leirer, a graduate of the University and a counseling psychologist, said that politically correct language was a part of a bigger issue of appreciating diversity. " The way to appreciate diversity is to accept other people for who they are- their culture, background, disability, speech, race, creed, national origin, gender-whatever makes them unique, " Leirer said. " To see all the colors in a sunset, that ' s what appreciating diversity means. " JHMBH ft V Photo courtesy of Disabled Student Services Steve Noone helps Mark Bryant into the Accessability Van.

The Carr brothers were not new faces to campus. Both brothers received the bachelor of science degree in criminology in summer of 1990 and now they both were back to receive their master ' s degree. This time around both degrees were in public administration with a slight variety. Kevin received his M.A. in public administration and policy and Keith received his M.A. in public administration — state and government. The slight variety showed that even though they were twins, they were individuals first. Their mother was the person responsible for putting such a strong emphasis on being individuals. Even though growing up their clothes were the same style they were always a different color. Even now they did not shop together, because they always seemed to want the same things. " Mom would always say to us that we were special because we were individuals first and second because we happened to be twins, " Kevin Carr said. " Mom went so far as to make sure that each birthday both of us had our own cake. It was never ' Happy Birthday Kevin and Keith ' . It was always separate, " Keith Carr said. With their mother instilling such strong values it was no wonder that when asked who their idle was, both had the same answer, " mom " . " Mom is my idol because of her strength and how well she used her resources, " Kevin said. " She is an inspiration to me because she raised four kids by herself. " Even with their strong sense of being individuals it was impossible to overlook the fact that they were twins. The similarities did not stop with looks, as they also had the same mannerisms and voices. They even shared the same hobbies — travel, art, cooking and music. Kevin played the drums and Keith played the trombone and tuba. Their different choices of instruments helped tell them apart while they were in the Marching Chiefs. Photo courtesy of Kevin Carr Over the years the twins have been able to keep everything in perspective; they attribute a lot of this to their mother.

In the past few years, frozen yogurt has become a staple for college students who were looking for a cool and delicious alternative to ice cream ' s high fat and calories. " I can eat frozen yogurt without feeling the guilt of eating real ice cream, " freshman Allison Woosley said. " I even think it tastes better than ice cream. " The local yogurt stores seemed to do most of their business during the evening hours after dinner. Looking into the windows of I Can ' t Believe It ' s Yogurt or The Country ' s Best Yogurt, one could see students standing in line or relaxing in the booths. " I go get yogurt when I ' m studying for tests. It keeps me up, " junior Bridgid Binder said. " It ' s also a ritual, my friends and I go get yogurt every Thursday before ' Seinfeld ' comes on. " Last year the University broadened its food service to the students by opening up two yogurt stores on campus. One was located in the Leach Recreational Center and one was in the Union. In addition South Gate Campus Center opened up a TCBY. The three yogurt stores were located at opposite ends of campus so students could stop on their way to classes or after a work-out at the Leach Center. However, there were some students that were not willing to let go of the old fashioned ice cream flavor. " I don ' t see what the big deal about yogurt is. I like real ice cream, " senior Scott Broughton said. " Getting toppings like cookies or M M ' s is the only way to cover up that weird, funky yogurt flavor. " Whether you were an adapted frozen yogurt fan or a traditional ice cream lover, the yogurt craze was here to stay. Photo by Ayanna Luney Barbara Godwin enjoys her TCBY yogurt in the union. The yogurt store was new to the union giving students the option of getting a snack between classes. By Jennifer M. Wiand ) i Williams, Jonathan(JR) .Ft.

We were overwhelmed hy headlines, vivid pictures and " tabloid elevision. In the fall the largest story on the local level was our search for a University president. Globally a sigh of relief was felt as the PLC and Israel reached peace. Winter holidays brought with them tin announcemen t that the NFL wouk place the next team, the Jaguars, in Jacksonville. In February, Pi Kappa Alpha left campus for good after an April, Danny Rolling face for the 1990 slaying of five UF students. We also joined the work in mourning the loss of former President Richard Nixon. While it was sometimes hard to read between the 1 ; lines, usually there really was a story that effected us all, hidden beneath the gloss and sensationalism.

Both the good and the bad have made me realize that nothing can be a one person endeavor. The seventh edition of the Renegade was produced by student effort alone. I would like to be able to say that there was support elsewhere, but with few exceptions, I can ' t. People that have never done " this " before have no idea what goes into the production of a collegiate yearbook. There is nothing else like it. After college, I hope we get paid better (or at all - in most cases). What I am trying to say is that the following people not only deserve my thanks, but yours as well. This book is a gift of their time and talent. Rebecca, this book is a part of you too, because it was your words of encouragement and understanding that were just what I needed over this past year. You gave this University a gift of your time and talent seven years ago and I thank you for that. I would like to thank the many writers that without there would be a ton of ' fashionable white space ' . Regina, Betsy, Eric, Denise, Jamie and Travis, thank you so much for your hard work and for always taking one or two extra stories so we could get this thing done. If it hadn ' t have been for the abundance of pictures this year there would still be that ' cosmopolitan white space ' . Alissa, Keith, Eric, thanks for all the running around you did. The pictures are beautiful. Heather, thank you so much for staying with us. The section is beautiful. Emily, I left the torch of knowledge that Amy gave me in the center drawer of the desk. Good luck next year - I know it ' ll be great. Steve, I hope you have a great senior year. I can ' t believe you came back after all we put you through last year. Whatever your reason, I ' m glad you did. Ayanna, you ' re one of the most hard working people I have ever known. I have complete faith in your abilities. You ' ll go far no matter which one of your paths you choose, good luck on getting out of here. Nancy, well, we certainly have seen the best and the worst in each other. The fact that we still speak amazes me (and some others). Thank you for your time and words when things weren ' t looking their best. Todd, (aka bitter boy) you will always be my favorite " realist " . Although you sometimes try to hide your optimistic side, we all know that it ' s there (well maybe). I wish you all the best in D.C. You ' re an incredible writer and you will go far. Hey, don ' t let that place corrupt you any more than this place did. Say ' hi ' to Bill and Hill for me. Vanessa Penelope, the pictures and the laughter made the stressful days a little bit easier to bear. Friday nights will never be the same (who ' s going to cook now?) Jennie, it seems like a 100 years ago that we moved you into Gilchrist. It seems like 50 more since we walked the Spartan track in the rain to get our diploma from Mrs. Broughton. That night I had no idea that you would become such a big part of my life. I ' m grateful for the years since then, and I am thankful for the beautiful work you did on this book. You have incredible talents and should be extremely proud of your ability as a writer. ...I think you only wrote twenty or so stories... Kristin, (aka Special K) I am so glad that we were able to leave everything in the past, because I don ' t know what I would do without you these past years. You have been there to remind me that when the world gets to be too much there is someone out there who has been where I am and they care enough to ease the load. Robert, well you may have taken the torch from Dana and passed it on to Amy (who later practically threw it at me) but I am sure that you didn ' t expect to be the one to stop me from tossing the torch into Wescott fountain last fall. Thanks for telling me that everything would be okay, even when I know you weren ' t too sure that you meant it. Amy, oh - I ' m sorry THE Amy Shinn, I finally have something to put on my coffee table. ..a year ago I don ' t think any of us believed it would ever end, any of it. I loved hating every minute of the ' summer from hell ' with you. It was all worth it when your book came in and it will still be worth long after this one comes in too. These pages have little pieces of all of us and we will always have that, no matter where we scatter across the country. Dody, I can ' t tell you what simply knowing that you were on my side has meant to me over the years. As we close these chapters (no pun intended), I will always look back and smile for the times that were spent in the tiny office at the end of the hall. Amy with her scissors in her hand and you and I sitting on the floor eating our Taco Bell, trying to create photos for the organizations. There were days that tested all of us. In the end I am better, and stronger, for having been through it. Life is full of miracles and sometimes you had to remind me of that. I ' m glad we were able to celebrate some of those miracles together. I wish you and Jim all the love in this life. I ' m glad I shared this book and this time with all of you. On a personal note I would like to thank my family, all of my families. They range from St. Petersburg to Cincinnati and scattered places in between. Tracy Ann Hammer Towle (I had to put all the names), thanks for being such a good roommate last summer and not killing Amy or me. I wish you and Bryan all the happiness in the world as you begin your life together. Hey Bryan, don ' t forget your cheerleaders. Ann, thanks for putting up with the ' Y-word ' for the past few years. You ' re a wonderful friend and I ' m thankful that you ' re a part of my life. Mom, thanks for supporting me no matter what I have chosen to do these past few years. I know sometimes I was a handful but you always let me make my own mistakes. Thank you for all your patience. Grandma and Grandpa, I would like to dedicate all of the work that I did on this book to you. You are two of the most important people in my life. You both have always taught me that with hard work, and love for that work, you will never fail. You two are the voice inside that has always told me to keep trying, because at home there are people who love you no matter how bad it sometimes may seem.

Photo by Ayanna Luney Fraternity Row on College Avenue remains permanently decorated with fraternity and sorority insignia. Greek events were always adverstised on the walls. Fraternity Row was a hot spot for all students on the weekends. • t • Dorm rooms were swept, final grades were posted and keys were returned to apartment managers. Roommates that were once strangers waved goodbye to friends. Somewhere between " 111 see you later " and " keep in touch " there was a feeling that things would never be exactly the same. We held on to our new memories of the National Championship victory and a new president. We said goodbye to Provost Robert Glidden after he accepted the presidency at Ohio University and we said hello and welcomed our new president, Sandy D ' Alemberte. We built new foundations on the traditions of the past as the University Center was added to Doak Campbell Stadium and Jennie Murphree Hall renovations were completed. As the year went on, we celebrated all that had been accomplished and the spring was filled with entertainment. Garth Brooks played two nights in March, Bo Diddly performed, Joan Biaz (Continued to page 318) Closing 317 (Continued from page 317) returned and in April we enjoyed a visit from J immy Buffet and the Coral Reefer Band for the first time in four years. In some ways, this was only the beginning. Some of us finished our finals and were on our way to turning our tassels at graduation. Some started summer session or went home to work for the summer while others began graduate school or became a part of the work force. No matter if we were leaving for good or only a few short months, we had changed because of the time we had spent here, the time we had spent together. We shared the good and the bad and we walked away wiser. No matter what our personal experiences had been, we had grown. Together we had raised our consciousnesses, spread awareness and built onto our foundation of knowledge both inside and outside the classroom. It was impossible to measure exactly what each individual gained from the year; we all had our own expectations and dreams. However, we found that there was a common thread through each of our lives; each was a piece of the cloth that kept the University woven together. As we linked the pieces together, we found that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.
