Florida State Llniv idyr - II g university FSU Seminoles: tra( - Florida State Lkutft-Acta- - ition of tribute 00 FSU ' s use of the name and symbols honors the strength and bravery of these people, who never surrendered and ultimately persevered, fill The Florida State Seminoles: FSU ' s Tradition of Tribute The Seminole Tribe of Florida are a courageous, tenacious and deter- mined people who, against great odds, have struggled successfully to preserve their culture and to live their lives according to their traditions and beliefs. As history shows, they are a peo- ple who have resolutely refused to accept defeat, whether at the hands of the U.S. military or when faced with unforgiving wilderness of the Florida Everglades. For nearly six decades, Florida State University has proudly identified itself with this heroic tribe. The name " Florida State Seminoles " was select- ed by vote of the university ' s student body in 1947, shortly after FSU be- came a coeducational institution and established a football team. The name was selected specifically to honor the indomitable spirit of the Florida Semi- noles - those people whom the Sem- inole Tribe of Florida refers to as the " few hundred unconquered Seminole men, women and children left - all hid- ing in the swamps and Everglades of South Florida. " FSU ' s use of the name and sym- bols honors the strength and bravery of these people, who never surrendered and ultimately persevered. For more than 30 years, FSU has worked closely with the Seminole Tribe of Florida to ensure the dignity and pro- priety of the various Seminole symbols used by the university. The university ' s goal is to be a model community that treats all cultures with dignity while cel- ebrating diversity. The Seminole Tribe of Florida has been recognized by the FSU faculty with the Mores Torch award, in recog- nition of contributions to and support of the university ' s tradition. The tribe has also been recognized for its sup- port of academics and athletics with the prestigious Moore-Stone award. As of 2005, seven members of the Seminole Tribe of Florida were enrolled as students. In addition, one member of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma was a student. preserving L egacy Wal k Florida State University has been paving the way since 1851. In October 2004, the university unveiled Legacy Walk, a historical tour of campus that focuses on its architecture, sculp- ture and green spaces. The first segment of the Walk, the Eppes Phase, is named for Francis Eppes, mayor of Tallahassee whose support was cru- cial to the establishment of the university. Encompassing the easternmost portion of campus, the Walk begins at the statue of Eppes located near the entrance to the Westcott Building. The path is embedded with symbols and lined with bricks and banners guiding visitors past many of the oldest and most his- toric buildings on campus before terminating at Dodd Hall. Raised brick podia containing maps and important information about people and events are located at intervals along the walk. The second phase, the Student Legacy Walk, begins at the Landis Green Legacy Fountain Sculptures. As the name suggests, the Student Legacy Walk passes through the core of student activity, highlighting student leaders of the past and serving as a living legacy to current and future students. Lined with banners depicting campus life, the Student Leg- acy Walk guides visitors from Landis Green north toward the Bel- lamy Building, around to newly renovated grounds behind the Crenshaw Building and Moore Auditorium, and circles the integra- tion Statue before wrapping around the Student Services Building and ending back at Landis. When all phases are completed, the Legacy Walk will link the Westcott Building with the University Center. H eritage Protoco l Building Florida State University ' s great heritage has taken generations. That heritage must be preserved for future genera- tions through locating, cataloging and preserving important doc- uments and artifacts. That is the goal of the Heritage Protocol, an Internet-ac- cessible database that assembles information and displays to the world a virtual museum of images of the University ' s important historic treasures. Assembling the images and locations of artifacts involves a corps of campus ambassadors as well as outreach to alumni groups and friends off-campus. our he Florida State Unu et-acfi - - itage a timeline history Florida Legislature provided for two seminaries, one on each side of the Suwannee River.

The Seminole Spirit Squad of 1968 show the differ- ence in Seminole pride and uniform changes through- out the years. Q ■ m o ■o a Tally Ho 1961 There are many reasons to be proud to be a Seminole, including Florida State University ' s rich and interesting history. FSU started in 1851 as the all-male Seminary West of the Suwannee. The first classes were offered in 1857, a year before women were allowed a separate depart- ment of the school known as the Female Institute. This department became inactive, however, during the Civil War. Renamed the Florida Military and Collegiate Institute, one of the first ROTC programs in the nation was established. The school produced cadets that would fight in the Battle of Natural Bridge in 1865, which has entitled FSU ' s ROTC units to have such a description and to this day hang a battle banner under their own. The Female Institute reopened in 1866, and in 1882, the entire school became co-educational. In 1901, this ever-changing school was renamed The Florida State College. In 1905, legislature decided to recognize higher education in Florida due to a growing need of funds, and in that same year, through the Buckman Act, it designed Florida State Col- lege as an all-female school and renamed to The Florida Female College, The name did not sit well at all with friends and supporters of the college, and so it was renamed the Florida State College of Women. The school continued to grow as a female college until 1947, when legisla- ture agreed to make both UF and FSCW co-educational schools, finally receiving the name The Florida State University. The year 1947 is one of the most significant in FSU history: the first football West a .f.4£ie.Suv z V ■ Ashley Trate game was played at the school, and through a student vote, the Seminole was elected as FSU ' s official mascot. Despite the changes, many things have been preserved throughout its history. The digni- ty, tradition, and pride encased within the walls of the campus have survived many generations, Through times of war and peace, economic hardship and prosperity, social upheaval, and the powerful influence of time, the FSU spirit has endured, - Brad Vaughan, senior The life of an editor. Kristin Johnson the Editor-in-Chief of the Renegade 1988 shows her enthusiasm behind deadlines. Organizations co-editors Kim Baker and Susan Alach pick out pictures for the 1988 yearbook Renegade. Renegade 1988 " The Book is Back! " Finally the Renegade yearbook is back at Florida State University, after hiding dormant for the past decade. With the reemergence of the yearbook, it ' s interesting to know how the year- book originally started. When Florida State was originally founded it was called Sem- inary West of the Suwannee as a counterpart to the Seminary East, now known as University of Florida. It was here that the first yearbook was established called the Argo in 1900. When the school became a women ' s college in 1909 the yearbook was renamed Flastacowo, an acronym for Florida State College for Women. Flasta- cowo is the longest running yearbook in the school ' s history, published for 38 years. In 1948 the college was officially named Florida State University and the year- book was again renamed, this time called the Tally-Ho. After 35 years of publication it became an award winning yearbook but due to a controversial editor the program was ended. The FSU yearbook could not be kept down and six years later was start- ed again and was named Artifacts but was only published fours times before it was renamed, yet again to Renegade whose first edition was available in 1987-88. The name Renegade references Chief Oceola ' s horse, a Florida State traditional icon. The 1991 edition of the Renegade won best of show at the Associated Col- legiate Press Convention and received the " Pulitzer " of yearbook awards, The Pace- maker. And now after a ten year hiatus the Renegade has returned. " Just as history is sometimes as pleasent in recollection as in the making, we hope that these pages may help to keep in you memories the days, bright or shad- owed, which have become the past instead of the present, " the Flastcow 1926 foreword.

Quite possibly. vyr wvt mn ihqh n, Greg Faluk, junior Orientation; as a senior in high school this word probably caused you to feel several emo- tions ranging from accomplishment, excitement, and maybe even nervousness. After receiving your acceptance letter into Florida State University, the only thing keeping you from becoming a Seminole is Orientation. Orientation is part of a student ' s official acceptance into the University, meant to be both fun and informative. For students starting their first year in college, it can be overwhelming: the information comes in rapid fire. Sometimes it is hard to know what questions to ask, but then there are the questions every student seems to ask. What is the FSU card for? How can I get involved? Is parking really as bad as people tell me? Who better to answer these questions than individuals who have up close and personal experience with these things? None other than Orientation Leaders! Orientation Leaders provide honest experiences from a student ' s perspective and give incoming students a peak into campus life, Each new student is assigned to a group headed by an Orientation leader. Their Leader helps them throughout Orientation by showing them where things are, providing them with valu- able information about Florida State, and answering questions. Students aren ' t the only ones who have questions and concerns about the University though, so family members go through their own Orient ation process as well. They are assigned, just like students, to a group headed by an Orientation Leader. The purpose of having different groups with different Orientation Leaders is to make such a large university seem smaller. " Orientation made me connect with the University, it made me feel welcomed and realize that even though this is a big campus there is always some- thing for everyone to do, " Carolina Orrego a senior reviews her time as an Orientation Leader. The Office of Orientation does everything it can to make sure Orientation is as short and informative as it possibly can be while still being fun. The Orientation Leaders keep up the stu- dents ' morale throughout the long hard day and they even perform a skit for the students, which encompasses all aspects of student life. At the end of the two days a speaker is brought in to really make sure the new students understand all the hard work it is going to take to get through college. The speaker is also there to help them realize that they can do it as long as they stay focused. Orientation at FSU leaves students and parents alike feeling safe, secure, and excited to get the school year started!

Marietta Palgutt Florida State University Housing has the best customized communities with diverse Resident Halls in order to help make the transitions of college as smooth as possible. University Housing pro- vides a comfortable environment that promotes educational and social growth for any student living in any of the many Resident Halls on campus. " I met everyone I care about by living and working on campus ' senior Erica Salmeri talks about her housing experience, " I am who I am because I lived on campus. " " Dorms, " an often used term, are part of FSU ' s total university experience. On-campus housing has the convenience of living near classes and the opportunity to participate in special developmental programs within Residence Halls. Residence Halls allow students to meet a vari- ety of diverse people, build social skills within their hall communities by meeting new friends, and attend campus events, and in order to become accustomed to FSU ' s enthusiastic environment. University Housing offers various living and learning communities which offers traditional Resident Hall living with the options of suite, community, and apartment-style living for students. Each residence hall has unique attributes to meet students ' individual needs. University Housi ng complements the academic and personal interests of FSU students by offering special developmental programs within the residence halls called Living Learning Communities. Specifi- cally designed for first-year students, the Learning Communities at Florida State University help contribute to the student ' s overall growth and development. In addition to residing in a close-knit supportive community, learning community participants are given the opportunity to network House Kathi Weaver with faculty and interact with other students who share common academic interests. Through FSU Housing students, aren ' t just living together, they ' re learning together. " The housing department strives to help ease the transition for new students entering col- lege. Living in the Residence Halls is a great way to make new friends and get involved in campus life, " Rachel Siditsky, the night staff coordinator for FSU Housing summarizes the advantages of living on campus. With all the conveniences of on-campus living, there is the freedom of being on your own and supporting yourself which off-campus living provides. Off campus living offers a housing op- tion with some amenities such as the addition of swimming pools, work-out rooms and computer labs. Some of the most popular off-campus living includes Frog Pond, Seminole Suites, Southgate, and Heritage Grove. No matter if the outcome is off or on campus, personalization is the key to making any place " home.

Florida State University ' s students have almost 50 years of experience with studying abroad programs and offers explorations in over 20 different countries, Students can study for a semester or an entire year in countries such as Spain, England, Panama, Costa Rica, Italy, Ireland, Czech Republic, Switzerland, China, Japan, Lebanon, and even Croatia. Some students study abroad to help them focus on learning and becoming fluent in a language, while others use the opportunity to take part in an in-depth study of their majors. " There is no better way to learn an- other language than living where it is spoken; no better way to expand perspective than by living outside the familiar, " The Director of International Programs, Jim Pitts explains the true advantage of the study abroad program. Students who wish to go abroad but don ' t want to take classes have an option to partici- pate in an internship geared towards their desired profession. Internships are available for several areas of study and fields. The study abroad internship program can be described as " real work experience around the world. " These remarkable opportunities are for both undergraduate and graduate students to work within influential organizations and dynamic corporations, while at the same time earning academic credit toward an FSU degree. Internships are integral to FSU ' s global perspective, offering students not only equivalent career experience, but more intense cultural interaction at the same time. The result can be re- Sara Gelber World spectful job placements in three major world cities: London, England; Panama City, Republic of Panama; and Valencia, Spain. Being ranked one of the top study-abroad programs in the country, Florida State has ap- plicants from universities all over the country. With all of the great countries available to visit, the study abroad program makes it seemingly impossible to decide where to go, " Studying abroad really gives you the experience of the world from a unique perspective. You absorb a culture that is so different from your own; yet after your time there, it becomes yours as well. It expands your mind ' s eye, and really you can never be given any greater chance in life, " senior Amy Bowman looks back on her time in London and the impact of studying abroad. In the twenty-first century students must be able to understand and perceive global change, and the Florida State Univer- sity International Programs are dedicated to exposing students to international cultures, lifestyles and languages to help spark this understanding. Students who study in London, England attend classes Monday through Thursday where they take group excursions to plac- es such as Oxford to learn more about the culture which they are studying in. wt ' V I - student fcfe - S NCififiBR F Si The vibrant spirit from Panama is brought to College Street durin the Homecoming parade where th countries which the study abroad program reach to, are previewed.

Students who study abroad are engulfed in a country ' s culture while taking cl asses for credit. Valerie Sanchez, junior " These are best years of your life " , is a cliche college students frequently hear from nostalgic parents and recent grads struggling to adjust to entry level boredom. At the same time, it is impos- sible not appreciate the resonance of such a comment for anyone who fully experienced college. University culture thrives on a very important rite of passage; living away from home. Learning is not purely an activity of the academic variety, it happens at bistros, bars, coffee shops, conversations at Strozier, ballgames, in painful breakups or during less than dignified adventures with roommates and friends. A great party, paying a water bill for the first time, an unforgettable mishap at work, or tak- ing risks either intentionally or coerced by persuasive partners in crime, forges memories. Although hard work is an essential component to any success in undergraduate study, occasionally purging the frustration is a necessary evil. Countless papers, projects, and quizzes are departmental require- ments however the experience of sharing in the joy, exuberance, and strife with friends while stum- bling on the path toward higher education either on a hike, at a game, show, or over a few bever- ages is a watermark on the syllabus. Some of the stories are cleared for Thanksgiving banter while others are more reserved for a rendezvous with a college cohort at happy hour years down the road. The students at Florida State University help to brighten up Tallahassee ' s " Limelight " whether Jason K. Smith Edge it entails: kayaking at the reservation, lazy days on the Ocholockonee or the Suwanee, drinking at the bars, dancing at the clubs with painted ladies or in fountains, late night movies, late night bowl- ing, parties, flip cup, beer pong, two for ones, safe bus, party bus, bull rides and karaoke; really bad karaoke. All the activities embrace a different meaning; that builds bonds, shapes the identity of the student body, and congeal the city ' s culture. Whether it is night or day, weekday or weekend; the semester ' s benchmarks are not only for fulfilling credit hours. Without a doubt, Tally is a great town with beautiful parks, gorgeous trees, and something to satisfy the penchant of even the most fickle hearted; it just takes a little searching. Counting down the days until the weekend arrives, is a Monday morning ritual for some and a literally a full-time gig for others that demands proper planning and scheduling where to go and with whom. The great thing about Tallahassee is that there is always a unique hangout that satisfies anyone ' s party pal- ate, If Playboy ' s top meat market is your thing, there ' s Bullwinkle ' s. For the sports and Tuesday night enthusiast, AJ ' s is the place and the Irish Pub is for the wicked who don ' t feel like minding their P ' s and Q ' s. Go to Stetsons when it ' s not the Moon or for some darts at the Palace Saloon. The place to dance of course is Chubby ' s, Yianni ' s, Element, or Clyde ' s, while the classic live music hubs of Talla- hassee (Beta Bar, Warehouse, and Floyds) always feature flourishing local and nationally recognized acts. Pockets is not only for pool; one night a week some of the most horrifying or most talented karaoke troubadours can be heard. Or lacing up the boots for some midnight bowling at Seminole Bowl can always score a perfect night. Whatever it is, was, or will be happens in the most amazing four years of your life, so be glad it was as a Seminole dancing around a Tallahassee fire.

Florida State emblems on clothing give students an- other opportunity to ex- press school spirit. As another school year comes to an end at Florida State, so does another year of fashion. From oversized sunglasses to cowboy boots, Florida State students have, as usual, stayed abreast the latest trends. The year started off hot, but students kept their eyes protected with Jackie O style oversized sunglasses, and of course aviators were still popular. As fall approached, prairie skirts were every- where in voile, chiffon, and other lightweight fabrics. Prairie skirts were just the beginning of a huge western trend this year. Cowboy boots were the boots to wear this past autumn, and they were matched with bohemian accessories with a western flair. Also popular in the accessories category was everything metallic. Belts in gold and sliver were spotted everywhere from class to clubs. As the wintertime hit, some students pulled out last year ' s UGGs, but even UGG Boots updated their look, with a slouchier model, reminiscent of the western craze. Sheepskin UGGs were decorated with over spilled shearing, making them slightly more interesting than last year ' s model. When the weather was less extreme, many female students used shrugs to keep warm, which came in all shapes and styles. They varied in decoration too, from sequins to argyle. Many were crocheted, which may explain the sudden popularization of crochet needles sprouting up all over campus. Cropped cover-ups were most popularly paired with longer tees underneath, which in the past were much less available. The spring brought in espadrilles, but kept with the cropped trend. Ca- pris remained popular, as did longer boy-style ' shorts and skirts providing a little more than just minimal coverage. Kim Waser Runway S r$)les Of course, we can ' t forget the men. While polo shirts paired with jeans and flip flops may never go out of style on Florida State ' s campus, some of the male student body took a bolder approach and purchased shorts made with seersucker material. Seersucker is a light, thin fabric with a crinkled surface that you may not have seen since your baby days. However, the men may be on to something. The material was also a popular pick for sundresses as the weather warmed up in Tallahassee. Possibly the most startling trend experienced on Florida State ' s campus this year, was the shade of brown. Shirts everywhere popularized the phrase, Brunette is the new blonde, as well as many, heads of hair. Blondes everywhere became bottled brunettes, and brunettes retaliated by going a shade darker. Paired with chopped bangs, and shorter cuts, this year was a far cry from standard for hair. It was a good year at Florida State for trend spotters and risk takers, and as another year comes and goes, we can proudly acknowledge a change in ourselves, reflected on the outside. Slightly more mature, slightly more respectable, but sometimes, just more fun. Cars constantly enter and exit the parking garages, it is imper- ative that students who want good parking get to campus early in the morning. To walk, ride, or drive? The new parking garage nearthe medical building is a sigh of relief of the ex- pansion of campus and demands of students. Here ' s a simple formula: FSU plus parking equals problem, Parking and Transportation services are providing solutions all across the board, and over the next five years, the Cam- pus Master Plan will drive the parking problem out completely. In 2006, the campus is covered by 13,995 parking spots (3,800- student, 4,200- fac- ulty staff, and 6,000- meter service visitor). At the time of press, garage number four is scheduled to be in operation by December taking over the corner of Macomb and Tennes- see streets. An effort to create a pedestrian campus by Parking and Transportation has the majority of campus parking lots migrating towards the perimeter of FSU ' s footprint. The busing system has also undergone changes. Smaller, garnet upholstered buses are scheduled to be in use for the Seminole Express routes that circulate across campus as soon as April. These buses, while not as high capacity, will skeet past the sluggish, oversized buses that have frequented their routes between 7:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. The routes will remain the same: Garnet, Gold, Tomahawk, and Renegade. Another part of the Master Plan already in the works is the Heritage Walkway. The Walkway is a dedication to alumni, paved with the same deep red masonry that gives Flori- da State distinction from other campuses. The project, being completed in sections, begins at the archway to the Westcott Fountain, makes its way through the center of campus via the Oglesby Union, connects to the newly erected memorial overlooking Woodward Av- enue. From there, it will hook up to the Florida State Women ' s Crest Fountain soaking the Henry ueane Campus grass and concrete around it, and finally to its ending point at the new Athletic Administra- tion building. Efforts to beautify this Civil War-aged campus have nearly tripled in the past two years from previous ones; students in the next five years may find a campus that is not only scholastic eye candy, but also one that takes special care to keep it free of traffic while also getting everyone to class. Mr. Anse Cates, President of Parking and Transportation Ser- vices, indicates that negotiations are in the air with StarMetro (TalTran of a different name) to run constant shuttle buses to key, high traffic developements such as The Commons, The Preserve, Tuscany, and Heritage Grove to cut commuting down drastically. " We hope to ease Tallahassee ' s already overworked roadways and curb traffic to and from campus, " Mr. Anse Cates says of the negotiations. The 22,000 students that live within one mile of campus may be holding in a breath, but a sigh of relief is in sight. wSSS " " — j student fe - All photos by Cody Lewis I 111)] x y :.

Without them, many of the things offered at Florida State would not otherwise exist. When compared to the United States government, one will find that the two are more alike than they are different. Besides having three branches (the legislative, executive, and judicial) like the U.S. government, within this service there are leaders who act as the voice of the students. And for these groups of people the needs of those individuals are their primary concerns. S.G.A. has willingly taken their position as leaders and in the process created a Ife 4 vmcz T t- W Student Government Association campus that serves those would in no other way be heard. Among those that have been aided are the undergraduate students. Have you ever ridden the S.A.F.E. bus, an operation whose purpose is solely for the safety protection of those students who lack their own transportation? Well, if you were not aware, it is the Student Government Association that provides such a connection. What about the Oglesby Union? S.G.A. funds the union where at some point every student ha spent time. In addition to those things S.G.A. has fought to have hours in the computer lab extended during the week of exams, fought to protect the students when there was to be a cut in financial aid, and are pres- ently fighting to decrease the cost of printing. These are only a few of their deeds to this school; the list goes on and on. Their work never goes unnoticed for they have been a crucial variable in this gigantic equation. And with several agencies such as Black Student Union, Hispanic Latino Student Union, Jewish Student Union, and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Student Union everyone is represented and no one goes unnoticed. With each task they take on a huge part of their heart comes out. The passion of S.G.A. and their ability to put their sweat into task being taken on makes them incredible leaders, and above all, incredible people. " S.G.A. is an outlet for students to express the opinions and concerns about student life on campus. The FSU Student Government Association ' s motto is " Students Working for Students " and this exactly what we are. We hope that future students continue to utilize S.G.A. as an outlet to improving relations between faculty, staff, and students here on campus, " said Christopher M.

The Ogelsby Union is the best place to promote your organization, political views, upcoming event, or simple opinion. Any person who has experienced the Union on a Free Market Wednesday knows that it is like no other day of the week. Stepping into the court- yard, students are overwhelmed by the bustling atmosphere, For any organization wanting to publicize, students desiring to peruse the vendors, or simply socialize, Wednesdays at the Union is the place to go. Some go directly to the courtyard to partake in activities, while others take the long way around to avoid the constant push of fliers for the next upcoming show, coupons off pizza, and organization representatives trying to pursue the perfect candidates for their organization. Whichever route taken, Market Wednesdays are a surprising mix of the campus for first-timers, a slice of diverse student body of FSU all in one place. The market vendors offer a variety of products and services such as DVDs, CDs, post- ers, TMT transportation, paintings, clothes, flip-flops, sunglasses, and jewelry. Unique items not found anywhere else are at Market Wednesdays. The Union on Wednesdays are more than just a flee market, but therapy for students who are swamped and tied up with academic obliga- tions. Most students take a moment out of their day to enjoy themselves in the many Market Wednesday events. The most popular being the 12- 1pm activity hour, in which one or a group of organizations can have a DJ, perform dance routines or hold a rally to name a few. Many Step Righf WR Shannon Glynn students are accustomed to seeking refuge in the Union between classes to take a break from the monotonies of a day ' s routine. At Market Wednesday there is something for most everyone and it is has truly become a staple of the Florida State University community that will continue for years to come. The combination of registered student organizations, market vendors, and the bustling traffic makes the Union " the place " to be on Wednesdays. Whether you are finding out about organizations, shopping, or just enjoying the atmosphere, there is room for you at Market Wednesdays.

There is also the Oglesby Gallery that holds faculty shows, traveling exhibitions, and local exhibits featuring the work of local artists. Tucked away behind dark plate-glass in the Union, Club Downunder brings nationally known and local bands, comedians, organization events, and karaoke to the Florida States Community. Shows are free for students with valid FSU ID and a minimal fee for the public for ages 18+. The club also sells food and beer to those attending the shows. Crenshaw lanes is Florida State ' s very own bowling and billiards center. Programs include a number of bowling leagues, billiards tournaments, intramurals, parties, cosmic bowling, late night programming and open bowling. Crenshaw Lanes is a popular party spot for student and university groups, but also serves as the home to the elite FSU Bowling Team. The Student Life Building contains one of the nation ' s leading campus movie programs that show blockbuster and Indie films free to students in their state-of-the-art movie theater. With mov- ies showing about five times a week, it ' s no wonder that the cinema is so popular on campus. The Student Activities Center helps manage, create, and publicize student organizations and activities on campus. They offer many services such as event planning, co-sponsorship, office Lenii Mcaneney space, and creating organizations websites. The Student Government Association is a way of self-governing its students in hopes to bet- ter the student body. They have a voice and representation on the Florida State University Board of Trustees, the FSU Athletic Board, the Florida Student Association and general campus wide committees and commissions.

Undeniably, Doak Campbell is one of the most impressive stadiums in the nation and possesses an iconic status amongst college football enthusiasts across the country. However, the inspiration for most of the Florida State University spirit is derived from the Seminole Indian Tribe. Every athletic team strives to embody the noble tribe ' s passion and vigor for life in ev- ery contest. Each individual or squad, proudly adorning the garnet and gold colors, begins every practice and enters every game with the mind-set that endurance, strength, honor, and sportsmanship are the most important qualities of a competitor. That consciousness not only swirls around the practice fields, weight rooms and sidelines of the varsity athletes, but isj strengthened by a devout student body, alumni and surrounding Tallahassee community. Although the Noles ' notoriety of being fierce warriors strikes fear in the soul of the oppos- ing teams, a deafening war chant bellowing from the belly of the stands always rattles visiting teams with the powerful bond the fans have with the players. Bodies painted garnet and gold, men showered in glitter, " Game Day " stickers from Bill ' s Bookstore, and buttons proudly declar- ing, " We Love Bobby! " are popular costumes and campaign trinkets adorned on game day. Worn to demonstrate Nole solidarity but are also implicitly designed to impersonate the cher- ished Seminole tribe ' s traditional ceremonial garb which show pride in our history and colors. ly m — i _ Jason K. Sr AenwCe net ho! The Seminole Fanship demands dealing with obstacles such as scorching August heat, rainy days in the Spring and chilly November nights, but their cheers scarcely subside. However, whenever the band strikes up the war chant, the entire Seminole nation coalesces to muster up a tidal wave of noise, momentarily distracting the other teams from their game strategy and weakening the defense to maximize the chances for victory. Also, the crowd involvement ignites the effervescent hope in the chests of all Seminole athletes. Any player ' s confidence is instantly confirmed with every glance to the stands; armed with the comfort that every friend, roommate, parent, professor and colleague is standing beside them even in the bleakest of scenarios. Recently, Coach Bowden expressed his appreciation of the fan ' s fervor after one of his football team ' s notoriously challenging games against Miami declaring that it was the loudest he had ever heard Doak Campbell roar. Also, with continued support from the Semi- nole Boosters regardless of the outcome; win or loss, the fans and Tallahassee community will always be a member of FSU athletics. Any avid sports fan would be hard-pressed not to recog- nize that the Seminole war chant is one of the most identifiable, prolific, and powerful symbols of excellence in the NCAA. No matter where Seminoles travel to; whether it is Manhattan or Madrid, their legacy, grace, and spirit is alongside for the trip. Because many fans claim that it is their job to guard the goal post at the end of a game, every person in the stands takes credit for the botched Miami field goal in 2005 that quelled the hurricane wind.

" Brianna Douthitt What would a Saturday in the fall be without tailgating? On the day of a home game in Tallahassee, " Club Publix " is sold out of hamburger buns, parking spots are nowhere to be found, and Bill ' s Bookstore is packed with fans stocking up on Seminole gear. Regardless of what time kickoff is, dedicated Seminole fans-young and old-don ' t miss an opportunity to gather together before the game. Even residence halls and campus organizations get in on the fun by cooking hotdogs and hamburgers to keep the student section energized at the game. Dedicated alumni who are big supporters get excited to tailgate in style in the shadow of Doak Campbell Stadium by scouting out the best spots. Most Seminole fans have been collecting garnet and gold es- sentials for years, and all know how to show their spirit because, " once a Seminole, always a Seminole! " All around campus and in parking lots, garnet and gold tents are scattered among the green grass. Matching chairs, coolers, cups, plates, flags, blown-up Seminole Warriors and FSU aprons are just a few of the essentials found throughout the land of tailgaters spread across cam- pus. Some tailgaters even find a way to incorporate spirit into their food, from garnet and gold fruit salad to hamburgers branded with the FSU logo. Tailgating does not stop even once the game has begun. No matter what time fans leave the game, they surely will find other fans listen- ing to the game on the radio from the comfort of their tailgating atmosphere. Some tailgates will last late into the night extending their Seminole pride as long as their bodies will let them. Before the NC State game this fall, the Seminole Student Boosters hosted the second annual " Grab the A Seminole -Saturday Brianna Douthitt Wolf by the Tailgate Competition. " Some of the different categories judged on included best " Gator Hater " , best dip, best electronics, and best Seminole Spirit. The competition took tailgat- ing to the max, but the true hard-core fans don ' t need a competition to go all out with Nole pride. The Florida State fight song can be heard chanting in the distance by true Seminole fans who know every word. No matter whom the opponent, or the sport, a game day in Tallahassee is full of fun, food, friends and Seminole spirit. v£7p u tv 4rt 4 i if ' Mr v My iifecf fiknjr cf Kevin Cruz, senior The Homecoming Princess Lacee Green, and Chief Nick Zappitelli and court, on the field during half-time pose with Chief Osceola and Renegade.

While working on the Homecoming Committee in 1962, Bill Durham, a 1965 graduate of FSU first envisioned the idea of Chief Osceola and Renegade. He did not receive any support for the idea until Bobby Bowden arrived in 1976 as the head foot- ball coach. In the fall of 1977, Durham ' s persistence paid off. Durham sought and obtained the approval from the Seminole Tribe of Florida for the portrayal of Osceola. Finally, in 1978, during the opening game against Oklahoma State, the legend of Osceola and Renegade began. Osceola dresses in authentic regalia designed by the Seminole tribe women, Today, Durham and his family supply the beautiful Appaloosa horses know as the Ren- egade. Together they have opened every home game with the traditional planting of the spear, appeared in many major bowl games and performed on national television on numerous occasions, The Renegade Team volunteers, caretakers of Renegade, aid in bringing this spectacular tradition to those who love Florida State University. Together, Osceola and Renegade have been called " the twelfth player on the team.

The Fire Pli are an amaz- ing site as they never singe a hair. The FSU Flying High Circus has been " captivating audiences the world over, " since 1947. Being a part of one of the few collegiate circuses in the nation, FSU students are a part of some- thing they feel important to be a part of and something they love doing. Created by former FSU professor, Mr. Jack Haskins, the Florida State University Flying High Circus is an extraordinary aspect of Florida State, and is one of few collegiate circuses in the country. Rising from " circus activity " to " circus professionalism " the flying high circus allows men and women to participate in a challenging, unique, and fun organization. Many performers have had no previous circus experience; however, a few have taken an introductory class to learn the basics and the rest of various acts are taught in the close community of circus mem- bers, a coach and volunteer student assistants. The organization receives no funding from the university, as a self-supporting activity, the circus relies on contributions, performances, and ticket sales to fund its program. The acts in the circus are extreme and elaborate; some tricks performed are more difficult than seen in many professional circuses, thus many students get professional circus offers upon graduation. The Flying High Circus features an assortment of per- formances, such as the Balancing Ladder, Spanish Web, Teeterboard, Skypole and the Double Trapeze, but there is no animal acts performed. The FSU Flying High Circus travels internationally and has visited places such as the West Indies, the Bahamas and Canada. Featured on V CBS Sports Spectacular, ' v ABC ' s Wide World of Sports, ' And ESPN, the circus was selected as one of the Southeast Tourism Society ' s Top The Greatest CotegJtteiSJpolM, Brianna Douthitt l l £f f A. 1, f w fLs " M eu s 11 7 L 20 Tourism Events in 1989, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2000.

Students and com- munity members find the circus tent opposite Dick Howser Stadium and year-round, dedicated students can be found perfecting their unique skills.

The Florida State University Reservation is located just four miles south of the FSU campus on Lake Bradford. The Rez has deep roots in FSU history. It was originally called Camp Flastacowo, named after the Florida State College for Women, the college which eventually became Florida State University. Located on Lake Bradford, it spans across 73 acres and is a perfect place for anyone who enjoys the outdoors - from picnics to canoeing to simply watching the sun go down. On the 73-acre property, there are many activities for students to enjoy, such as picnicking, ca- noeing, kayaking, beach volleyball, and swimming. Operated by fellow FSU students and lifeguards, a great thing about spending the day at The Rez is that it can cost little to nothing. Admission is free for all FSU students, and renting a canoe, kayak or sailboat is only $3 an hour, with the first hour free. The kayak, canoe, and sailboat rental at The Rez is open to all experience levels. There are two-person canoes and one-person kayaks available for students, and The Rez provides the paddles and requires the lifejackets. For up to $35, students can also challenge themselves on the extensive ropes course. Open Tuesday thru Sunday, The Rez comes set with covered picnic tables (great for cookouts), and if the midday sun gets too hot, Lake Bradford is just a jump away. There are always events happening at The Rez, which are great opportunities for students to meet new people, spot familiar faces and hang out with old friends. The annual Rez Fest and Rez Daze are annual Tallahassee traditions that feature live bands, free food and all sorts of activities from beach volleyball to wall-climbing. The Florida State Reservation is a haven for Tallahassee recreation, and home to several outdoor groups, such as the Wakeboarding Club and the Outdoor Pursuits Program that provides students the op- portunity to take camping and hiking trips outside of town. Jenny Julien On a beautiful summer day, FSU students out at The Rez are lounging in the sun, playing beach volleyball with friends, or exploring Lake Bradford in a canoe or kayak. FSU senior Krystal Plomatos said, " Almost everyone I know, including myself, is from the beach, and The Rez is the closest thing we can get to what we ' re used to at home: being out on the water and in the sun. Plus, I don ' t know anywhere else I can go kayaking for free. " Whether it ' s relaxation or exercise you ' re looking for, The Florida State University Reservation has it all. Whoever dares to brave Tallahassee ' s Summer and Spring heat, loves be- ing active or just wants to lay out in the sun, The Rez has been and will continue to be a place for all FSU students to truly enjoy. tth?

For the motivated few that can ' t quit their favorite sport, the FSU intramural program provides an electrifying atmosphere for them to expel their competi- tive energy. Intramural players at FSU are as competitive, serious, and intense as any athlete. The fierce- ness of a true competitor can be found in the eyes of a participant of blitzing flag football, en- xcit Douthitt 1AJA. t ror gaging miniature golf, or cutthroat kickball. For some, playing intramurals gives them a chance to socialize with their sororities, church groups or friends. Others use intramurals as a way to stay in shape, and still others are out to win. At the start of each new season, captains are selected as well as team colors and names. Everyone can find a sport with the intramural program which represents over 50 sports each year. The campus recreation board sets no practice requirements, teams can practice as little or as of- ten as they like. Currently, teams can practice at the intramural facility that is located across the street from the stadium, but in the near future a new Intramural Sports Complex will be available. The new complex, which will be located near the Seminole Golf Course, will be eight times larger than the current one and span 104 acres. The new complex will have 45 acres of field space, but it will also include beach volleyball courts, basketball courts and a street hockey court. This year intramural teams broke records by having 248 flag football teams, 170 kickball squads, 204 soccer teams and 216 softball teams. Even these huge numbers of teams could not accom- modate the growing demand for intramural teams as over 40 teams in each sport remained on the waiting list. Intramural teams can often be found practicing and playing long into the night, since this is the only time all of the team can get together. Intramurals also offer students numerous job opportunities such as a sports official, site su- pervisor or sign-in attendant. Intramurals can be for someone just looking for a good time, or can be the therapy for that nagging competitive spirit that can ' t be satisfied. Kristin Mestre Intramurals are for any student who takes the initiative to sign up a team and play, mostly greek organizations, resident halls, and groups of friends. c student Cufe - On the Intramural fields in front of Doak Camp- bell stadium, flag football teams compete starting at six oclock. Fraternities like to play ' ntramurals against one another to keep active. The sports teams such as basketball which is played n the Leach Center, help unite members. Umpiring a co-rec game, the field official concentrates on the next pitch. Intramurais create teams for students to play sports, and creates jobs for some extra cash.

FSU Photo Lab The Center for Civic Education and Service, aims to connect FSU students with service opportunities in the Big Bend. Instead of assigning projects to students , students are able to select opportunities that they feel connected to. Every week The Center for Civic Education and Service sends out a newsletter called ServNews which lists upcom- ing service projects. Tallahassee offers a vast array of organizations and causes that FSU students can devote their time and energy to. Some of the most popular causes include: The Leon County Humane Society, The Boys and Girls Club of the Big Bend, Covenant Hospice, the Hunger Hotline, Habitat for Humanity and The Red Cross. These organizations are in constant need of support and dedicated volunteers. Many service oriented organizations at FSU that focus on a specific project or a variety of projects as well as participating in activities such as the homecoming parade. Some of these organizations are Alpha Phi Omega, CHICS, Circle K International and Al- ternative Break Corps. Community service can be co-curricular or extra-curricular. Class- es are offered each semester that incorporate community service into their curriculum. Florida State also recognizes the importance of service by implementing the ServScript program. Through the ServScript program, any student who completes 20 hours of com- Boost P[fMfoy$mty A 4um Brianna Douthitt r f " I munity service through an approved program can have those 20 hours recorded on their official transcript. Every volunteer has a different answer for that question. Some are drawn to a specific cause relating to their own experiences. Others serve to build their resume or learn new skills. Still others volunteer to simply meet new people. No matter what leads a volunteer to serve, they all leave with a better understanding of themselves and their community. Cflrfttr. Center for Civic Education This soaring dolphin sculp- ture by Hugh Bradford Nicholson is located be- hind the capitol with a fountain for waves, Tallahassee is home to beau- tiful architecture that ranges from Spanish inspired to ultra modern to Jacobean that can be seen on campus. All photos by Cody Lewis The city of Tallahassee may be located in Florida but it is a far cry from the bustling ur- ban streets of Tampa or the soaring buildings that line the Miami skyline. Tallahassee is made up mainly of rolling hills, a quality unusual among other major cities in Florida. The climate in Tallahassee is quite mild and moist. While most of Florida has a subtropical climate year-round, Tallahassee, along with most of the panhandle area, has a four-season climate. Located just inside the state line, Tallahassee is home to the state ' s capital as well as many other unique landmarks. The original Capitol building, with its trademark candy ca ne striped awnings, proudly stands as a reminder of the rich history of Tallahassee. Behind it, tow- ering above ancient oak trees stands the new Capitol building, which offers a view of the en- tire city from its 22nd floor observatory. Tallahassee is rich with school pride as it is home to the Eagles, Rattlers, and Seminoles. These schools combine to make Tallahassee a college town where old and young alike gather together in support of their schools and their town. Despite its warm weather location, Talla- hassee is said to be home to the first Christmas celebrated in the United States. The celebration occurred at the camp of Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto in 1539. America ' s largest concentration of plantations lie between Tallahassee and Thomas- ville, Georgia, where visitors and residents are able to travel back to their roots through tours of manors, plantations, galleries and museums. Tallahassee is also the home to 122 properties on the National Register of Historic Places. One of these places is Bradley ' s General Store lo- n J f I f r J I Brianna Douthitt TffeBWFlorida cated on Moccasin Gap Road. The Bradley ' s have run the family store since it was opened in 1927. Visitors can stop by for a Moon pie or one of their world famous sausages. Other places that shouldn ' t be missed on any trip to Tallahassee include Apalachicola National Forest, the Challenger Center, the Governor ' s Mansion and the Maclay State Gardens. With all the many places to visit, junior Sara Cameron likes Klemans Plaza the best because " It ' s just so pretty and quaint and they decorate it so nicely for the festivals and such throughout the year. " Tallahassee is so much more than just a capitol city, it may not be known for white sand beaches or high-end fashion, but it is a picturesque town with so much to offer. flfr rf- OUT tfr to+-e - Sara Cameron, junior f " i -. - student Ctfe - ITJ i I f- • 44 ; ■• ■ r W :.4P IB 19@®%w%$. nRvrr FTTT mfffl Bradley ' s Country Store, is one of 122 places in Tallahassee on the National Register of Historic Plac- es.

CNo longer does Miami have bragging rights, the wide ide left curse has been overcome with the season opener against Miami. Being one of the teams to have the youngest set of starters in college football, the win over Miami gave the Seminoles confidence to welcome Boston College to the ACC. Even though the Seminole were fourteen point underdogs, critics were silenced when FSU upset the Virginia Tech Hokies 27-22 in the ACC championship, Coach Bobby Bowden quotes, " We haven ' t been that heavy of an under- dog in years, But any ways, we came back, That gum defense just played great. I didn ' t think we could stop the run like we did. " Voted the games MVP, Willie Reid ran an 83-yard, punt return and had a total of 177 yards. " I don ' t think the punt re- turn had anything to do with the team thinking we were able to win the game, " said Reid. " They did a great job with us having that trust in our- selves and that confidence to make us feel like we were go- ing to win the game. " After winning their 12th conference ACC title, the Seminoles went to their first BCS bowl game since 2003 to face the legendary coach Joe Paterno ' s Penn State Nittany Lions, in the FedEx Orange Bowl. The Florida State Seminoles entered the game ranked 22nd in the nation and Penn State ranked 3rd. The Noles were big underdogs but they were determined to play with a big heart. Going down early in the first quarter 7-0 the Noles looked for inspiration to get back into the game after many three and outs. Just like he did in the ACC Championship game, Wil- lie Reid ignited the team with an 87-yard punt return with just a little over 4 minutes left in the half. After a back and forth second half the game went into overtime tied 16-16, where Penn State overcame with a late field goal to win the game in triple overtime 26-23, Willie Reid received the Orange Bowl MVP with 180 return yards and 235 all-purpose yards despite the Noles losing. Although young and inexperienced the team overcame many difficult challenges this season, which has the Noles entering next fall as contenders for the national title.

The Florida State University cheerleading program consists of two teams, the Garnet, a co-ed team, and Gold, the all-girl team. Both teams are regarded as Var- sity teams, thus the time commitment and enthusiasm for the Seminoles is imperative. A week in the life of a Gar- net and Gold cheerleader demonstrates the dedication these talented FSU students have for their teams. " We have a really crazy schedule and cheerlead- ing keeps me very busy but it is all worth it when you get to cheer for a team as great as the Seminoles, " said Mal- lory Davis. With impressive stunts and outstanding choreog- raphy, the cheerleaders keep the Seminole fans hyped up throughout the long sport games, The Garnet and Gold cheerleaders have proven to be essential at ath- letic events and spreading school spirit around Florida State campus on game days, The teams attend men ' s and women ' s basketball games, home and away foot- ball games, women ' s volleyball, and post-season travel for bowls and tournaments. Both teams contribute to numerous hours of community service and public ap- pearances around Florida State University ' s campus, as well as around the state. Between tumbling, classes, stunting sessions and hitting the gym in addition to cheerleading at pep ral- lies and sporting events, these students have earned the right to be called athletes.

The men ' s swimming and diving team amassed eighteen individual and relay titles the second best six-year run in school his- tory. Seminole swimmers and divers excel in the class- room just as well as they do in the pool. Since 2000, the Seminoles have had at least 20 student-athletes on the ACC Honor Roll every year, including a program-high 32 in 2002. This year the Atlantic Coast Conference named its post season award winners where head coach Neil Harper won ACC Women ' s Swimming and Diving Coach of the Year, Neil Harper, seven-year head coach, has orchestrated a winning strategy since his arrival to Florida State University, " This is the biggest compliment that the other coaches in the conference can give someone, It will be there to remind me of the great year that we had as a team and a staff.

Pro- gressively improving every year, this was the teams ' third consecutive appearance in the NCAA Championship. " This season was very rewarding. We achieved our main goal of being a Top 20 team at NCAAs, " said red shirt sophomore Chris Nickinson. Finishing first at every meet for Florida State, senior Andrew Lemoncello led the team to success. " Every race was a major improvement. I was really struggling with training at the beginning of the season, but I kept working on improving. I set two school records: two ACC performer of the week awards and an Ail-American per- formance, " said Andrew Lemoncello who not only broke his own personal records this year, but also Cross Coun- try records for Florida State University. " It was a big deal when Andrew made All-Ameri- can who has represented the men ' s team, " said Head Coach Bob Braman, Andrew, along with the rest of the men ' s cross country, trained daily to build up stamina to make it to the championships. Finishing number one at the NCAA National Cham- pionship was the teams ' ultimate goal. " Some of the best memories are not made by winning a race or winning a match, It is the journey or road that you and your fellow teammates took to get there, " said senior Sean Burris.

" i loved being in the huddles before every race. You can taste the passion we have for the sport, see the intensity in my teammates ' eyes, and feel the unity we have together. The last few moments before we scream v Go Noles ' are the most powerful because we all look at each other. There in that moment, the true sisterhood we have for one another comes alive within our gazes, " said sophomore Shannon Coates. Having such a close-knit team made the fresh- men ' s transition from high school cross country to the collegiate level much smoother. The upperclassmen gave the incoming freshman the benefits of their ex- perience at the NCAA level. Freshman Lydia Willemse stated, " cross country this year, as a freshman, was so much more than I expected. I had a great season, and learned so much. Our team really improved throughout the year. I am so excited for the next cross country sea- son! " Even though: the team just missed out on their chance to make an appearance in the NCAA National ; Championship, they feel confident about next year ' s season.

The Florida State volleyball team was able to do something Wednesday night September 19th, that it was unable to do in it ' s previous four outings: earn a much deserved victory. Snapping a four-match losing streak with a 3-1 win over the University of South Florida on Lucy Mc- Daniel Court at Tully Gym in front of roughly 700 fans didn ' t come easy, however, as all four games for the Tribe were close. After dropping the first game to the Bulls 23-30 — a contest that saw USF out-hit the ' Noles in percentage .206 to .128 — the Garnet and Gold fought back in the second game behind the piay of ju- nior setter Jessica Skower and sophomore Libero Sum- mer Weissing. Both players registered five kills and six digs apiece in the contest. While the Weissing-Skower tandem guided the Seminoles to the 30-22 victory in the second game, Senior outside hitter Kristen Rust led both the offense and defense in the third contest with five kills and a game-high seven digs for the 30-25 win, For the fourth and final game, Freshman outside hitter Marrita Royster-Crockett paved the way for the x Noles hitting at a .400 mark with six kills on ten attempts. The impressive play helped FSU slip past the Bulls with a final score of 30-28. For the match, Skower finished with fifty-one set assists, one ace, twelve digs, three blocks and twelve kills while Royster-Crockett had a team-high fifteen kills. Skower and Rust notched their second respective double-doubles of the season. Weissing had seventeen digs to push her total double-digit dig count to six of Seven matches this Season.

The loss of six seniors, the transfer of two essential play- ers, and the parting of the teams most successful head coach last year left many people skeptical if the 2005 year was going to be a rebuilding year. Despite crit- ics predictions about the outcome of their season, they became one of the top four teams in the nation. The Seminole soccer team accomplished a record breaking season, which is sure to go down In history. For the sec- ond time in three years, the Seminole team has seen it ' s hopes of playing for a National Championship slip away with the loss of one game. Although they fell just short of a National Champi- onship, loosing to fourth ranked UCLA in the quarterfinals, their twenty win, four lost, and one tie (20-1-4) season gave the Seminoles something of which to be proud. " There are no expressions to describe how it feels to be a part of this. I had to watch from the sidelines the last time we made it to the College Cup. To be able to be a part of this on the field this year is a dream come true for me and this team, " said Ali Mims. With the loss of two seniors and a promising freshman class, the Lady Seminoles expect to continue with their success and add a National championship towards another impres- sive season, Getting the upper hand on your competitor on the field was key in order to retain ball control.

Alexander Johnson led the Seminoles with 14 points to beat Georgia Tech 80-79 , including a slam dunk that tied the ragged con- test at 77 with 2:06 left. After a rough start last season, the Seminoles came into the 2006 season with high expectations and a determination to play well, Threshing out 10 wins of the first 11 games, the predominantly younger Seminole team ' s leadership came from experienced senior veterans Andrew Wilson, Diego Romero, and Todd Galloway. The Seminoles produced one of the best featured offenses in the Atlantic Coast Conference, scoring an average of 80,5 points per game and 224 more points then their opponents while averaging 10 steals through 20 games, A rocky schedule left the Seminole Men tackling some of the Atlantic Coast Conference ' s heavyweights. With their backs against the wall and desperate to stay alive in the NCAA Tournament hunt, the Noles banded together to beat rival Virginia at home. The match-up game versus Virginia was highlighted by An- drew Wilson with a career high 21 points and Alexander Johnson who scored 15 points and was the games ' top rebounder with 13, adding to his fifth double-double in seven games. Coach Leonard Hamilton commented of his team, " During one of our recent team meetings one of our players stepped up and said that we really need to play the remaining of the year for our seniors and to try and send them off on a positive note ' ' The struggle to stay alive for an NCAA Tournament bid came in the most unlikely of times, Florida State in the last minutes against Nod Duke finished off the Blue Devils 79-74 in a huge upset that caused the students to storm the court twice, " I couldn ' t have written it any better. This is unbelievable; ' said Senior Andrew Wilson " I got to do it in front of my whole family my mom bought thirty tickets for a whole bunch of family members to come in that don ' t get to see me play. I have been here so long and it is such a relief to be able to go out on top: ' The Florida State team ended up getting snubbed by the se- lection committee and did not get into the Big Dance. " I must say that to say that we were disappointed, I guess would probably be an understatement; ' said Coach Hamilton " We did realize that we basi- cally controlled our destiny and we thought we did a good enough job to considered a top 64 team, but when you really don ' t have a total knowledge of what all the criteria is that the committee is us- ing, I guess you are really somewhat in the dark, The men ' s basketball team got invited into the National Invitation Tournament with a No. 2 seed and plan to take this as a great step towards the future, Robert Pando o a F _ having the tenacity To drive to the hoop - ath eeW - insistence % . a] 01 r 1 " •i wn s ■t ii!wr ■ l SS V - ' tel. j ' SjsJ " ' „B 4 . .

Lead by their Head Coach Sue Semrau, the Lady Noles head into the sea- son with high hopes and making it to the Big Dance. The season would turn out to be everything they hoped for going 19-9 overall and 10-4 in the Atlantic Coast Confer- ence; the Lady Noles secured a bid to the NCAA Tourna- ment for the 5th time in school history with victories over rivals Florida, Miami and nationally ranked teams Boston College and North Carolina State, The team got even better news when they team heard of their No. 6 seed- ing which matches last years and is the highest seeding the Tribe has had in the 64 team format. Seniors Ganiyat Adeduntan, Holly Johnson, Han- nah Linquist, and LaQuinta Neely should feel especially proud knowing they were part of the first class to lead Florida State to seven or more Atlantic Coast Confer- ence wins in four consecutive seasons including a record 10 wins in the conference this season. " I am really proud of our players because there has been a lot of hard work on their part, " Coach Sue Semrau said, This year ' s team helped Florida State achieve three top four finishes in the Atlantic Coast Conference, a fourth straight post-season appearance and second straight trip to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 1990-91 season.

" Performing during half time at the Georgia Tech game, the Golden Girls are a relief of the intense game by dancing to their Pitbull " Shake " routine, Intricate flowing movements designed to show the team ' s talents while entertaining the fans and beating the competition. These movements are the result of weeks that involve at least ten hours of practice on top of working out and finding time for class, It is this sort of dedication that makes the Florida State Golden Girls so impressive. The Golden Girls are FSU ' s dance team which performs at ail the Men ' s Basketball home games, The eighteen girl team spends hours practicing on the routines you see during time-outs and half- time of every games, " We generally choreograph twenty to thirty routines each season and we also have two routines that we focus on for National Competition. " says senior Kyia Provitt who has spent three years with .. ' ; the Golden Girls, including the last two as team captain. In national competition at the Universal Dance Association National Dance Championships the Golden Girls placed seventh in the Hip-Hop category and fifth in Jazz. The competition was featured on ESPN. The Golden Girls do more than just perform at basketball games, they also make appearances at events on campus such as Cheers for Charity, Pow-Wow, Dance Marathon, and the FSU Cir- cus. The team also makes various appearances in the community at places like Legends Fitness Club, Golden Eagle Country Clubhand the Festival of Lights Christmas Parade, The team will also be joining the Men ' s Basketball team at the ACC Tournament in Greensboro, North Carolina. The summer brings little rest for the Golden Girls as they at- tend a Dance Team Camp at the University of Alabama. The camps main goal is to acquire new routines and skills for the upcoming sea- son as well as bond with teammates. The camp features a team competition in which this years team placed second. With all the extra time and effort why would anyone want to be a member of the Golden Girls? Provitt best answers that ques- tion by saying " I decided to join the Golden Girls because I love to perform. Getting to showcase the art that I have such a passion for is thrilling. I am also a huge basketball fan and being on Golden Girls is a perfect mix of the two.

But with every season ' s end comes the time to say goodbye to the seniors who contributed so much to the team. Adam Wallace, a high school state champion and three- time varsity letterman, brought the most collegiate experience to the team. After competing in 14 events comprising of nearly 40 rounds over a three-year career there is no doubt that he will be missed. Another senior moving on is Gonzalo " Gonzo " Ibarraran. Gonzo, from Saltillo-Coahuila, Mexico; won two Junior Nation- al Championships in Mexico before moving to Florida to per- fect his game. In fact Gonzo represented Mexico in the Junior World Championships and placed sixth. Like Wallace, Gonzo was a three-time varsity letterman as well. Majoring in social science, Gonzalo plans on becoming a professional golfer in the future. The last senior leaving the team is Jacob Davis, a Varsity letterman and Brevard Community College transfer student, won the all out individual junior college national championship before moving on to Florida State. During his division I career he competed in five tournaments, completing 14 rounds and averaging 77 strokes per round. There is no denying that the loss of Adam Wallace, Gon- zalo Ibarraran and Jacob Davis will leave a void in the team that must be filled, however the amazing play by junior Torstein Nevestad, sophomores Jonas Blixt, Tommy Rymer and Song Jeon and the play of freshmen stand-out Matt Savage, will leave head-coach Trey Jones feeling very comfortable about next year.

The last game of the regular season against Duke saw freshman Lisa Nystrom Skold defeat Jessie Robinson 7-5 and 6- 3, which in turn led to the only point that the Seminoles picked up. That day was also proclaimed " Alina Mihailescu Day " in honor of the only senior on the team who contributed much to her teammates during her four years at Florida State. The No. 10-seeded Florida State women ' s tennis team saw its ACC Title hopes come to an end as the Seminoles fell 4-1 to seventh-seeded Wake Forest in the opening round of the 2006 ACC Women ' s Tennis Championship at the Cary Tennis Center. FSU came out strong and captured the doubles point with victories at Nos. 2 and 3 at the ACC Championship. First the freshmen pair of Ania Rynarze- wska and Suzanna Mansour overpowered Ashlee Davis and Ana Jerman, 8-3, and the Tapiwa Marobela-Alina Mihailescu duo followed suit with a 9-7 win at No. 3. " This was our best doubles performances of the year at Nos. 2 and 3, " FSU head coach Jennifer Hyde said, " It was great for Alina (Mihailescu) to finish up her career really strong. This has been the best I have seen her play in doubles since I started coaching here. " " It ' s been a long season with the injuries and other things we couldn ' t control, " Hyde said. " But I cannot say enough about the character and heart of this team. Everyone competed hard all season long and I can honestly say we had a blast together this season and that shows a lot about their character, When we got knocked down, they ' d get right back up. I am extremely proud of our team and I just adore each and every one of them. As a coach, you couldn ' t ask for more. We have the intangibles intact and next year we ' ll have the numbers. Again, I cannot express and describe what a joy it has been to work with these girls this season. " Hand in hand with being an athlete, a being a top student is also an important part of being a Seminole. The women ' s tennis squad fulfilled this ex- pectation with seven of the players on the squad landed on the 2006 ACC Honor Roll and five of the student-athletes on the team finished the spring semester with a GPA above 3.5. With the combined GPA of 3,467 for the academic year and a 3.507 average for the 2006 spring semester the FSU women ' s tennis team re- corded the highest team GPA of the 2005-06 academic year. " I think it is extremely Important to have student-athletes that excel In the classroom, in the community and on the court, " second-year FSU head coach Jennifer Hyde said. " I am very proud of the hard work and dedication our players displayed towards academics this year. It is not easy to play a collegiate sport and be a student because of the time and travel demands. However, our stu- dent-athletes made a valiant effort to succeed in all perimeters of their lives and I couldn ' t be more pleased.

The team started with a rocky first half of the season gc ing 20-12 overall with a relatively young squad, but the Lad ' s Notes have done some great things along the way. in Fielder, Yuruby Aiicart received the first ACC Player of the Week hon- ors which is the 75th award for a Florida State player ever and the most handed out to any single school after she had raised her hitting average by 80 points during the FSU Invitational. The best occurred during the Judi Gorman Classic where FSU upset No. 10 Arizona State 1-0 in 10 innings. ■ " This is a big win for us over a Top 10 team, " FSU head coach JoAnne Graf said. " This shows our team that we can win any game against any team in the country. This will be a big confidence booster. We bent, but we didn ' t break and our pitching and defense came through when we needed them. " The Lady Notes battled through the tough competition and surpassed everyone ' s expectations as they rolled into Re- gionais and upset No. 3 Georgia advancing themselves into the Super Regionais as the only ACC school and one of only two unranked teams to do so. Even though the Noles were on a great run the magic ended when Arizona State got payback eliminating them 5-1 in the series second game. " I toid the kids that I ' m really proud of them, " FSU head coach Dr. JoAnne Graf said. " We went a step farther than we did last year and I told them next year we can go that extra step. " Florida State recorded its 24th season that school had reached 40 wins and 16th in the last 1 7 seasons. ■ Robert Pando Whitney Buckmon hook slides into home to put the Seminoles in the lead by one to then later beat Boston College 7-5.

The Noles returning 1 1 starters from last year ' s team that went 53-20 and reached the Super Regional of the NCAA Tournament. The reigning National Player of The Year, Shane Robinson returns $ the squad hoping to improve or repeat last years great season The Seminoles started off the season 21-2 and received the No.1 ranking in the nation by winning 17 in a row and beat- ing nationally ranked teams Florida 6-4 and Winthrop 10-0. One of the great moments early in the season was legendary head coach Mike Martin reaching 1,400 wins in his career as one of only three Division I coaches to do so with a ,700 career winning percentage or more. " This program is about our team, " said Martin after the his- toric win. " I am just very blessed and proud to be a part of the Flor- ida State team. We have a great administration. We have a great staff. We have been fortunate to keep everybody around and I am just fortunate to be a part of it. " The Seminoles soon had to face the heart of the Atlantic Coast Conference one of the toughest in the nation with nationally ranked teams such as North Carolina, Miami, Clemson, and Georgia Tech. The Noles ' struggled throughout the rest of the season drop- ping in the rankings to No, 18 but continued to give it their all. The team came together to make a great run in the ACC tournament falling just short of the championship game losing 8-7 to North Caro- lina State. " This was a great baseball game, " said FSU Head Coach Mike Martin. " NC State was a very tough team. They did everything better than we did tonight, Give them all the credit. I am just proud of the way our ball club fought and hung together. Another hit here or there, who knows? But that is what makes the game great, The Seminoles were not able to host a Regional but soo traveled to Athens, Georgia to face the competition but were elimi- nated by Goergia in an exciting third game ending Florida State with a 44-21 record and a 29th consecutive Regional appeareance.

" The essential curriculum of a col- lege education, Van Doren explained, teaches students to learn progressively the arts of investigation, discovery, criti- cism, and communication. The Florida State University ' s liberal studies curricu- lum, which is grounded firmly in courses offered by the College of Arts and Sci- ences, helps to develop these crucial intellectual values and critical skills in all undergraduate students. Majors in the College of Arts and Sciences, further- more, enjoy the privileges and benefits of developing a richer appreciation of the humanities and the sciences an ap- preciation that enhances the quality of students ' lives morally, intellectually, and professionally. The oldest college at the Univer- sity, the College of Arts and Sciences has provided generations of undergraduate students instruction in the liberal arts dis- ciplines that are essential for intellectu- al development and personal growth: English and mathematics, history, the humanities, and the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences. At the gradu- ate level, too, the contributions of the College of Arts and Sciences have been integral to the growth of the University. The first recorded master ' s degree at the Florida State College for Women was awarded by the College of Arts and Sci- ences in 191 1, and the first doctorate at the Florida State University was awarded in chemistry in 1952. dEnc Anthropology, Biological Science, Chemistry, Classics, Computer Science, English, Geo- logical Science, History, Mathematics, Meteorology, Modern Languages, Oceanography, Philosophy, Physjc Psychology, Religion, Statistics Fcfr STbQmplet] undergraduate students: 4059; graduate students: 1760; applied: 3620; admitted: 1441; enrolled: 803 - aca JfcvvtOr - ■ Ira Flatow, host of NPR ' s popular weekly science program, " Talk of the Nation - Science Friday, " took a Preak from program preparations to visit the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.

" We are fortunate to have someone with his tal- ent and experience to oversee the Col- lege of Arts and Sciences. " As dean, Trav- is said he will guide the Arts and Sciences contribution to advancing FSU into the ranks of the nation ' s elite public universi- ties. Travis, who specializes in the fields of evolution and ecology, was named a fel- low of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1991 . At FSU, he was recognized as a Lawton Profes- sor, the university ' s highest faculty honor, in 1996. He also has received a University Teaching Award and a Developing Schol- ar Award. Travis earned a bachelor ' s degree in biology from the University of Pennsyl- vania in 1975 and a doctorate in zoology from Duke University in 1980. coll ege o f Courtesy of the College of Business The FSU College of Business is the second largest academic unit on campus with an enrollment of more than 6,000 students within seven distinct depart- ments.

Every day, each of us is bombarded by more messages than we can count. The College of Communication provides state of the art instruction and the technol- ogy necessary to prepare the best educated leaders and professionals. Industry and business leaders look to our degree programs for outstanding, well-trained graduates. Although the Florida State Col- lege and the Florida State College for Women offered communication- oriented courses, a communication major was not offered until 1948. In that same year, a department of speech was founded. It recognized communication ' s ties to various pro- fessions such as broadcasting, adver- tising and public relations. Today the Department of Communication of- fers graduate degree programs and undergraduate majors in advertising, public relations, media production, mass media studies and communica- tion studies. FSU ' s programs in audiology and speech-language pathology were founded in the early 1950 ' s. The department ' s programs soon were accredited with the Educational Standards and Professional Services Boards of the American Speech-Lan- guage-Hearing Association. The De- partment of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers graduate and un- dergraduate degrees to prepare stu- dents for careers in hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centers, nursing care facilities, industry, government health facilities, and research laboratories.

Dr. Penny Ralston Ralston ' s research and teach- ing interests are related to older adult learning, community- based programs for the elderly, health promotion nutri- tional education, issues affecting the minority elderly, and program devel- opment in higher education. Ralston ' s interests related to community-based organizations for older adults have fo- cused on factors related to the de- velopment, growth and utilization of senior centers. Several studies exam- ined minority issues in relation to se- nior center use. More recently, her interests have focused on programs for elders, with attention given to health promo- tion and nutrition. She completed, with Nancy Cohen, a study that ad- dressed factors influencing dietary quality of elderly blacks, funded by the Andrus Foundation. As a separate area of interest, Ralston has studied Black participation in home economics from an historical perspective and has also led efforts to increase minority involvement in the human sciences. In particular, Ralston spearheaded a three-year. $250,000 partnership grant from the U.S. De- partment of Agriculture, with three partner historically Black colleges and universities, that will expose minority students to research and graduate school opportunities at FSU.

The School of Public Admin- istration and Policy provides profes- sional education serving government just as schools of business, law and medicine serve their professions. The Economics Department studies how institutions, such as markets, arise to solve the problem of allocating scarce resources among competing ends and what the determinants of movements in aggregate economic activity are. The Geography Department emphasizes the investigation of criti- cal issues of society and the physical environment, including the linkages between global and local processes, a hallmark of geographic inquiry. The focus of the department is built upon two foundations of faculty expertise: political geography and environmen- tal studies. The Department of Political Sci- ence provides background for careers in government at the local, state, and national levels; in international organi- zations; political campaigns; interest groups and lobbying organizations; journalism; business; and law. The soci- ology department has four substantive emphases: health and aging, stratifi- cation, and demography. The Depart- ment of Urban and Regional Planning was created in 1965 in response to the growing national demand for persons trained in planning, urban affairs, and policy analysis. ency$ a£ndtir All photos are courtesy of the College of Social Sciences Economics: Paul Beaumont, Bruce Benson, Joseph Calhoun, Tina Carter, James Cobbe, Gary Fournier, Randall Holcombe, George Macesich, Milton Marquis, Patrick Mason, Thomas McCaleb, Stefan Norrbin, Kislaya Prasad, David W.

Steven Koshler understood it the first time he set foot on campus. " The feeling you get when you walk on FSU ' s campus is different than other schools I have vis- ited. Some give off a pretentious vibe, but at FSU I have always felt welcome. " Steven never let that feeling of comfort turn into complacen- cy. His involvement in ProjectFSU and GoodProject included street cleanups and home repairs for the less fortunate. He has volunteered at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and the Bix- ler Emergency Center, showing a dedication to improving his community. Steven ' s experience at the hospital renewed his vigor for his path in the medical field. It led to what Steven describes as his most memorable moment at FSU, " my acceptance into Inter- national Medical Outreach in the fall of 2004. After a rigorous application process, and weeks of waiting, I finally received an email congratulating me on my acceptance. I thought, I ' ve finally made something of myself as a student here at FSU and now it ' s my turn to give back. I called my parents, sister, grand- parents, and best friends. On our medical trip to Jamaica in spring 2005, I particularly remember an elderly couple. Their gratitude was unlike anything I had ever witnessed. It ' s one thing to hear a thank you from a patient while at work, but it ' s another to hear it from those you didn ' t have to help in the first place. " Steven plans to take a semester off and then enter FSU ' s medi- cal school. " I like the learning environment that FSU provides. " Our response? Students with Steven ' s dedication help make FSU a superior learning environment. Steven Koshler Department of Biological Science; - peo pfe - I ,v-.— : m " . ' . n ■ ' !- .

" The staff here promotes academic excel- lence for all students. As a student-athlete, I was extremely happy about the university ' s priorities. " Latoya ' s own priorities show in her dedication both to aca- demics and to her team. She has been a frequent visitor to the Dean ' s List, and this past fall she was named to the ALL-ACC Honor Roll. Latoya says, " One of my University highlights and one that is dear to me is going to Strozier Library at any hour, day or night, and the library when library is full of students. " She has shown excellence on the track as well. Her leader- ship qualities evident, she was elected team captain of the Women ' s Track and Field Team. She has been honored with the Femina Perfecta Award, given to a female athlete which most represents the ' complete woman. ' A cherished moment for Latoya was the unveiling of Florida State ' s bronze, Integration Statue, which pays tribute to the first African-American students who integrated the university over forty years ago. An obviously busy student, Latoya has found time to give back to her community by mentoring young student through home- work help, coaching and participating in the America Reads program offered by the Center for Civic Education and Ser- vice. Latoya plans to pursue an MBA in marketing. No doubt she will be at the head of the pack in graduate school, just as she has been in undergraduate school and on the Florida State Track Team.

He considers the move to be a major life accomplishment. We agree, however, looking back on his academic accomplish- ments, it ' s evident that he did not rest upon it. Upon arriving at Florida State University in 2003, he began work- ing on a double major — Studio Art and Art History — and has maintained a grade point average of 3.8. Consequently, he became a recipient of two grade-based scholarships awarded by FSU ' s International Center. His high marks also brought him an invitation to join the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. This rhythm of winning continued. In 2005, Phi Kappa Phi honored him with " Artist of the Year, " an award judged by a panel of faculty. The faculty of the College of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance also honored him with its " Faculty Painting Award. " For two consecutive years, he had exhibitions in the Oglesby Union Gallery: " Self existent " and " Subjugation and conception. " Though English is not his native language, he chaired the publi- cations committee in 2004 for FSU ' s Art Students League, which, in addition to publishing a magazine, organizes art shows and hosts special events. Somehow he found the time to join the stu- dent ' s Art History Association, volunteer at FSU ' s Museum of Fine Arts as a docent, and assist with the renovation of the bachelor of fine arts ' gallery warehouse, the Red Door Gallery. Our hope is that more international students like Alberto want to attend college in America. We will all b e better for the experi- ence.

She earned her College ' s award by volunteering with America Reads at Bond Elementary, by devoting her time at Tallahassee ' s home- less shelter, and by serving two ot her spring breaks for the Al- ternative Break Corps — in a Philadelphia inner-city elementary school and at the Pelathe Center, a Native American outreach center, in Lawrence, Kansas. Somehow Brittney has found time for a triple major: Criminology, International Affairs and Arabic. She is doing well in all three Criminology — She placed first regionally at the Lambda Alpha Epsilon Criminology Fraternity Conference in crime scene investi- gation and went on to score second nationally in academic test- ing. International Affairs — To gain knowledge and experience, she has worked as an intern for the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt; the U.S. Senate Finance Committee in Washington D.C.; and the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Tallahassee. Arabic — Brittney has excelled in her study of the language, says Professor Zeina Schlenoff. As the representative for FSU ' s Arab Cultural Association, she attended the Arab American Institute ' s National Leadership Conference in Dearborn, Michigan, and this past semester she won the David L. Boren Scholarship, which will cover all expenses for a year of study in Damascus, Syria. Brittany enjoys student life at FSU. Her favorite memories will be at- tending football games and especially playing intramural soccer. Brittney is now planning for graduate studies in International Rela- tions. We know the international community can put this Ameri- can humanitarian ' s energy, talents, and heart to good use.

Judging from his accomplishments, he ' s taken full aavantage of what the University has to offer. Mark was invited into the Honors in the Major Program, which re- quires two terms of research with a three-faculty member com- mittee and defense of a thesis on that research. He has assisted Dr. Lisa Spainhour, Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, with TraCS, a traffic and criminal software program funded by the Florida Department of Transpor- tation and released statewide. He ' s also served as research assistant for one of his favorite pro- fessors, Dr. Andy Wang in the Department of Computer Science. Mark admires the professor ' s extensive knowledge and is grateful for his insights into systems programming. Mark has maintained a 3.7 grade point average, made the Dean ' s List, and has been inducted into the Upsilon Pi Epsilon Internation- al Honor Society for the Computing Sciences, which chooses its members not only for their scholastic achievement in a comput- ing science program, but also for distinguishing themselves as pro- fessionals. He ' s also a member of the Association of Computing Machinery, an organization dedicated to advancing the skills of information technology professionals and students worldwide. Yet, one memory of his time at FSU stands alone for Mark — the middle-of-the-semester email from one of his professors, Dr. Ted Baker, asking him to serve as Teaching Assistant for the senior- level Programming Languages course. He says, " I was honored to be offered this position. " Indeed, Florida State is honored because of Mark ' s dedication to learning.

If done well, the imaginative identification with a character can translate the emotional weight of a story to the audience. Diskin has taken his studies in Theater at Florida State seriously, and has fun doing it. He has become Ottavio, the 17th century Italian lover who, in his attempts to obtain his father ' s approval of the woman he loves, is led into a comical farce by the hilariously deceitful Scapino. Not to play the dupe continually, Diskin took on a master ' s role — that of Philostrate, the leader of the revelry in Shakespeare ' s " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream. " An actor must be thoroughly trained in voice projection, enunciation and body movement. Diskin says, " FSU ' s Theater students are led by a team of skilled professionals: Jean Lickson, Michael Richey, George Judy, Lynn Hogan, Paul Steger, Debra Hale, Antonio Ocampo-Guzman, Guy Molnar, Ombra Sandifer, Adam Mclean, and Fred Chappell. All the faculty and staff have greatly influenced my work, my career, and my life. " His training was taken to the limits in his role as a paraplegic Vietnam vet- eran in Lanford Wilson ' s " 5th of July. " Diskin had to embody the charac- ter Ken Talley, who must walk with the help of wooden prostheses and crutches. He had devilish fun playing Ferraillon, a hotelkeeper with a sadistic streak, in " A Flea in Her Ear, " a 19th century comedy of situation involving mar- riage and deception. And in " Romeo and Juliet, " he played the opposite in personalities, that of Friar Lawrence, the wise and practical priest whose only efforts are for the good of others. Behind the scenes of this Shakespearean play, Diskin took on the role of assistant fight choreographer, directing his fellow actors for their various on-stage sword-fights. Diskin learned stage combat, using such weapons as the rapier, dagger, sword, and knife, in workshops offered by The So- ciety of American Fight Directors. For his Honors in the Major thesis, he will perform a stage combat of his own creation. As an actor, Diskin will " go where the work leads, " but will take a part of Florida State with him, " A person changes drastically here in four years. No one leaves the same as when they came in.

Florida Gubernatorial Fellows plan a future in public service. Through the program, Michelle is receiving high-level, on-the-job training at the Department of Health ' s Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Her focus is obesity prevention. " I am especially in- terested in exploring how to engage youth to eat healthier and to increase their physical activity. " Michelle is no stranger to accomplishment. She is a member of Florida State ' s Garnet and Gold Key Leadership Honorary, both the Phi Sigma Theta and Phi Eta Sigma honor societies, and she regularly appears on both the President ' s List and the Dean ' s List. So. it ' s not surprising that the National Dean ' s List and the National Society of Collegiate Schol- ars have recognized her. Nor is Michelle a stranger to public service. For three months she in- terned with Florida ' s Department of Financial Services, and was a four- term peer leader for FSU ' s First Year Experience Program. Currently, she is the Student Government Associations ' senior class president, as well as vice president of the Omicron Delta Kappa National Leader- ship Honor Society and the Mortar Board Senior Honor Society. She is a member of the Student Alumni Association and the student chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association. Through her membership in the Chi Omega sorority, she has received scholarships from both the chapter and the national office in recognition of her commitment to the University. Community service has taken a great deal of her time. She has served a variety of organizations, meeting a variety of needs, but the majority of her efforts have been for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Michelle, however, is making no wishes for her own future. She is mak- ing it a reality. Upon graduation, she will work toward a master ' s de- gree in Integrated Marketing Communication. Following that, she will work toward a career in Political Communication and Law.

Covering at least three continents, Etienne ' s jazz is truly bringing down the house. Etienne grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, sister isles of the Caribbean, where language is spoken in a singsong English and the F rench-Creole dialect of patois. A blend of color and cultures, Trinbagonians communicate dynami- cally through music and dance. At elaborate carnivals, Calypso, Steelpan, Chutney, East Indian Classical music and Limbo dances intermix. Etienne has played his special trumpet blend of jazz at major venues around the world — from Jazz at Lincoln Center to Long Beach, California, from Thailand to the Netherlands ' North Sea. And has performed with legendary artists — from rhythm and blues queen Roberta Flack to jazz vocalist Rene Marie, from steelpan great Len " Boogsie " Sharpe to calypso legend Lord Blakie. Along the way, he has garnered numerous awards. In 2005, the Interna- tional Association for Jazz Education honored Etienne with a Special Cita- tion for Outstanding Musicianship and an Award for Outstanding Service to Jazz Education. That same year, he won second place in the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Improvisation Competition in Bangkok, as well as in the National Trumpet Competition Jazz Division held in Fairfax. Virginia. His musical studies began at Fatima College, one of Trinidad ' s prestigious institutions. He then went on to study at the Sorbonne in Paris. Next stop, Florida State. He had heard the College of Music provided " a nurturing en- vironment for young musicians to hone their skills. " Here, he considers himself " lucky enough to be under the guidance of great music pedagogues. " We believe great music teachers deserve great students. During his two years here, Etienne founded and served as president of the FSU Jazz Soci- ety and is a member of the International Association for Jazz Education. He has performed with FSU ' s award winning Jazz Combo 1, the Faculty Jazz Quintet, and is the featured soloist in Jazz Ensemble 1. At the end of his junior year, Etienne was awarded the Brautlecht Music Scholarship, whose recipients ar e selected for both their character and their scholarship. Etienne will graduate in the spring. He ' ll continue his music performances, but will also " teach music privately and work to promote the performing arts in my home country through education.

He graduated cum laude in May 2004 with a bachelor ' s degree as a double major in Finance and Real Estate. Athlete. Senior catcher for FSU ' s Baseball team, Cheesman has been voted captain for the past two years. One of the most de- pendable players in the ACC, he started 71 of 73 games at the gru- eling catcher position, and led his team to a successful 2005 season when many doubted it could be done. Head Coach Mike Martin attributes the team ' s success to " outstanding senior leadership. " In May 2005, Cheesman was named a first team Academic All-Dis- trict selection. This is the second straight season he has been se- lected for this honor by the College Sports Information Directors of America, which recognizes college scholar-athletes for their ability to achieve excellence on the playing field and in the classroom. He also has been awarded the 2005 ACC Weaver-James-Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship, given to student-athletes who intend to pursue a graduate-level degree. Student-athletes receiving the award of $5,000 have performed with distinction in both the class- room and in their respective sports. Cheesman ' s plans for his future are clear — to continue in profes- sional baseball — he played this past summer for the Philadelphia Phillies — and to work toward a second career in financial advis- ing — he ' s now pursuing his master ' s degree in FSU ' s Sports Admin- istration program.

Upon arriving at Florida State, she was overwhelmed by the size of the campus and was frightened to be away from her parents for the first time, Yet, she also felt at home. " I will never forget that, " she says. " So much excitement and fear all at the same time, " She, in fact, specifically chose to attend FSU because the University of- fered " a variety of career opportunities and diversity among the students and faculty. " Her chosen major, Communication Disorders, is a discipline that seeks to understand the broad scope of human communication, both normal and disordered. As an Honors in the Major student, she is busy preparing her thesis, " Voice Onset Time in Women as a Function of Oral Contraceptive Use. " She is also an active member of the National Student Speech Lan- guage Hearing Association, a pre-professional organization. Now in her senior year, she maintains a grade point average of 3.8. Yet, she feels her academic accomplishments are due in part to her teachers. " Three professors — Richard Morris, Lisa Scott, and Leonard La Pointe — have touched my life in a unique way. Each has taught me a lot about the profession and life in general. " Herring knows that experiential learning helps students connect their aca- demic studies to real-life situations. On campus, she combines academics with service by serving as the vice president of community service for the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and by volunteering for both Relay for Life and American Heart Walk. Over semester breaks, she plans - reactivities for, and assists in the care of, patients at the Hialeah Shore Nurs- ing and Rehabilitative Center.

Thanks to Jean Moriuchi, a Ph.D. student majoring in Ecology and Evolution, you ' re likely to see less and less of the species that have invaded our landscapes. And the less you see of unwanted plants and organisms, the more you ' re likely to see Jean ' s scholarship on these invasive species that often have detrimental effects on native biodiversity and ecosystems. Jean has already collaborated on articles that have been pub- lished in The American Naturalist, Community Ecology, Ameri- can Midland Naturalist, Diversity and Distributions, Ecology, and Biological Invasions. Jean ' s scholarship includes numerous presentations at confer- ences, some international, and has earned her the honor of being selected to review articles for National Science Founda- tion grants and peer-reviewed journals. Jean complements her scholarship with volunteer efforts to in- form the public, including working as a mentor in FSU ' s Young Scholar ' s Program to introduce high school students to biologi- cal research. Her accomplishments have been rewarded through various competitions, including FSU Fellowships ($15,000 in ' 03 and ' 04), the Margaret Menzel Award from the Department of Biological Science, an FSU Dissertation Research Grant, a Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council Research Grant Award ($2,500), and the Robert K. Godfrey Endowment Award for the Study of Botany. Reading Jean ' s vita can lead only to one conclusion: Jean means less invasive species. lore Yolonda Yvette Durant English Literature Jessica Earley Elementary Education Zachary Eberhard Laurence Eckstein Richard Ehresman Studio Art Political Science Physical Education Ian Ehrlich Finance Eicon Amanda Eikeland Child Development Kahylah Elie Marketing Latifa Ellis Management Infomation Systems Brigitte Emenheiser Choral Music As a child in his native Uganda, he awoke to the sounds of African drums and horns.

Anlys Olivera, an Honors in the Major student, has been work- ing with Dr. Wang, whose research interests include social and drug reward interactions. He explains, " There is little doubt that the ability to form in- tense social attachments with a mate (pair bonding) has a biological architecture with definable molecular and neural mechanisms. Because pair bonding and drug reward are regulated by very similar neural mechanisms, and because both result in enduring changes in behavior, we hypothesized that addiction to drugs of abuse and pair bonding may act on the same brain-reward circuitry, and that the two may interact with each other. " Anlys is now gathering data in Dr. Wang ' s lab for her Honor ' s thesis on drug addiction and social behavior in pup prairie voles. This is the perfect animal, says the professor, to test the hypothesis. Having appeared on the President ' s List and the Dean ' s List for the prior seven semesters, Anlys has prov- en she possesses the academic prowess to perform such re- search. She wants to complete her doctorate in Neuroscience, and has been honored with the means to do so — the Gates Mil- lennium Scholarship.

The junior majoring in economics will receive $30,000 to study welfare reform at the graduate school of her choice. " We are extremely proud of Cara, " said FSU President T.K. Wetherell. " This is a tre- mendous honor that speaks to the quality of the students we have at Florida State University and their commitment to serve the nation and the world. " The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation awards merit-based scholarships to college students who plan to pursue careers in government or elsewhere in public service, and wish to attend graduate or professional school to help prepare for their careers. Truman Scholars participate in leadership development programs and have special opportunities for internships and employment with the federal government. " This is the equivalent of being a Rhodes Scholar for a junior, " said Jody Spooner, director of FSU ' s Office of National Fellowships, whose office nominated and sup- ported Castellana through the application process. " It is a huge honor. We hope this is the first in a new wave of student awards that rightfully pay tribute to, and assist, our students in reaching their goals. " A native of Melbourne, Florida, Castellana said her interest in helping people developed in stages from a desire to assist the elderly to the mentally feeble to the impoverished. By age 16, her tenacious drive to make a difference in the lives of others led her to volunteer at the local soup kitchen where she met people from all walks of life trying to get out of poverty, but failing. " Working there gave me a different perspective, " she said. " I know that the people at that soup kitchen don ' t want to be there. They are working very hard to fix their situation. " Castellana currently volunteers at the Florida Association of Community Action Hunger Hotline where she hears the concerns of callers living on the welfare system. " People call in and tell me how their food stamps got cut off because they were late to a meeting. " she said. " Then when the stamps are put back on the next month, it ' s only for $200. The average person moving off of welfare is making $6.56 an hour and that ' s not enough to support one person, let alone a family. " With the support of the Truman Foundation, Castellana, an FSU Honors Program student, will pursue a doctorate in political economics. Her goal is to work with the Social Security Administration and the Executive Office of the President ' s Office of Management and Budget. Positions with these agencies would allow her the op- portunity to work on facets of poverty and welfare, such as evaluating the effec- tiveness of current social service programs and developing agendas to improve public policy. In 2005, the Foundation expects to award 70-75 Truman Scholarships on the basis of merit to junior-level students at four-year colleges and universities who have extensive records of public and community service, are committed to careers in government or elsewhere in public service, and have outstanding leadership poten- tial and communication skills.

In education and sports. With preschool children and college students. Sharrie Thomas, a sophomore majoring in Elementary Education, is working to improve places and support people. The nickname " Good Works " would not exaggerate the amount of time or degree of effort she has volunteered. Through the Jumpstart program, Sharrie joined with 2,500 college stu- dents to help 9,400 preschool children build the literacy and social skills they ' ll need to succeed. Sharrie is also the Membership Chair of SISTUHS, Inc., a statewide volun- teer organization for women of color that originated at FSU to respond to the local community ' s needs and provide moral and educational guidance to other young African-American women in the community. You might find Sharrie on the basketball courts at the YMCA, where she volunteers as a coach. Or you might see her improving neighbor- hood scenery, as part of the Adopt-A-Street project. Sharrie has also answered the call to do good works on campus. She is a student judicial board member and has served on the Student Rights and Responsibilities Panel. As an Orientation Leader, she has helped incoming students make a seamless transition to the University. It ' s all part of her 316 hours in service (thus far) that have been of- ficially recorded on her transcript as part of the University ' s ServScript program. Her voluminous volunteer record has not detracted from her academic record: Sharrie has been named to the Dean ' s List. All of which may make her voice just a little sweeter as she sings in the FSU Gospel Choir.

" The ideas she taught me about Education are helpful today when I need to commu- nicate with different people in various ways. " And then there ' s the accessibility of President T.K. Wetherell. Gabrielle and other student leaders were invited to dine with him. " It was very re- warding. I was able to talk to him about the concerns of the every day student. " The Marketing major is using her newly found knowledge not only for her benefit, but for that of others as well. In fact, she says, " Community service has always been a top priority of mine. " Currently, she serves as the president of the Multicultural Greek Council. In that capacity, she has been able to sit on staff search committees for Greek Life at FSU. She also serves as the community service chair for her sorority, Sigma Lambda Gamma. She takes time out for fun, as well. Or, as she says it, " takes advantage of all the amenities FSU has to offer " — the cultural exhibits in the Museum of Fine Arts and the concerts at the College of Music.

Carolina will be inducted into the National So- ciety of Collegiate Scholars in fall ' 05. It ' s no wonder Carolina contributes to the supportive culture at the University — it was a major reason she chose to enroll here: " When I first came, everyone was very welcoming.

The 2005 Arthur Ashe, Jr. Sports Scholar is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Collegiate Honor Society and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. The three-time ACC Academic Honor Roll member earned the Golden Torch Award given to the student-athlete with the highest GPA. Johnson was named to the Dean ' s list three times with a 3.5 GPA or better and President ' s list with a 4.0 GPA. Johnson works as a legislative assistant in Florida Governor Jeb Bush ' s office. On a daily basis, he researches questions posed by constituents and serves on several committees including the Governor ' s Haiti Advisory Council. Since 2004, he has worked in the capacity as the assistant to the director of Bush ' s Haiti Advisory Group, created to compile recom- mendations to improve the current economic and environmental condi- tions in the country. Other projects include volunteering as a member of the Intergovernmental Relations Team during the hurricane emergencies in 2004, staff support at the Florida State Emergency Operations Center and as a campaign worker on the Bush Cheney 2004 Presidential Re-election Campaign. Within the athletics department, he spent the 2004-05 campaign as the vice-chair of the Atlantic Coast Conference Student Athlete Advisory Council, president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council and vice presi- dent of Student Seminole Boosters. He volunteered with FSU Cares and the FSU Cross Country. In 2004, Johnson represented Florida State at the annual NCAA Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida. Johnson helped Florida State sweep the Atlantic Coast Conference Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Team Championships, scoring points with run- ner up finishes in the shot put in February and the shot put and discus in April. His throw of 66 ' 8.75 " (20.34m) bettered the FSU Indoor school record and was the second farthest throw in the world at the time. He earned his first All-American honor with a fifth place finish in the shot put at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship. The mark helped score points towards FSU ' s highest team finish in 31 years. He moved into first on FSU ' s all-time shot put list with a throw of 66 ' 0.75 " (20.13m) at the Seminole Twi- light.

Rickards High School in Tallahas- see, Pankaj is a senior majoring in Biochemistry, Chemis- try, and Biomedical Mathematics, Under the supervision of Professor Michael Chapman, she is currently working on an honors thesis project developing a cell line con- taining viral genes that has long term potential for gene therapy, As evidenced by recent clinical trials, viruses are ideal vectors for gene therapy. Of these, adenoas- sociated virus (AAV) is very promising due to its non- pathogenicity and range (it can target both dividing and non-dividing cells). AAV, however, requires adeno virus helper functions in order to replicate, which ne- cessitates co-infection transfection. Establishment of a stable cell line containing these adeno helper genes is currently underway. In addition to receiving a Howard Hughes Fellowship in Mathematical and Computational Biology, a Charles A, Brautlecht Chemistry Scholarship, and a Bess Ward Honors Thesis Grant, Pankaj is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Golden Key, Phi Kappa Phi, and Phi Eta Sigma. She is also involved with International Medical Outreach whose mission is to unite the efforts of a small group of pre-medical students and medical staff in an inter- national service learning experience that provides first hand medical care in countries less advanced.

It is also the year that he was elected Student Body President of FSU and, consequently, became a governor on the Florida Board of Gov- ernors. Singular accomplishments. Extraordinary by any measure. And yet, anyone reading Christopher Schoonover ' s history of distinguished ser- vice at FSU would not be surprised by these crowning achievements. Christopher, a graduate student in political science, has taken on greater and more prestigious responsibilities each year. Chief of staff, deputy student body treasurer, member of the Union Board, secretary of health concerns, and then student body vice presi- dent. Naturally, Christopher is a member of the Seminole Circle of the FSU ' s Omicron Delta Kappa Society, an honor society that recognizes ex- cellence beyond academics at the University and emphasizes the ex- emplary conduct, unselfish service, and success achieved in worthy undertakings. His excellence beyond academics has not diminished his excellence in academics. As a member of the Mortar Board, a national honor so- ciety, Christopher has been recognized for his ranking in the top 35% of his class. More evidence of his achievement can be found in the Journal of Materials Research, where his article " Rapid Prototyping of Micro patterned Substrates Using Conventional Laser Printers " (Vol. 17, No. 7) was published. How does Christopher keep his accomplishments in perspective? By seeing them as opportunities to serve others.

Sometimes people forget that such a paradise is also a community much like ours with real needs. Maria is aware of this fact and has set out to make a difference to those in need. Maria participated in the International Medical Outreach at FSU. International Medical Outreach is a program designed to give care to impoverished nations outside the U.S. The program allows students intense, hands-on medical training while exposing them to the social and cultural aspects of practicing medicine. This pro- gram took Maria to tropical Jamaica for anything but a vacation, Maria and others served the medical needs of the people of Ja- maica for ten days. " I ' ll never forget the first morning of clinic. We arrived at the clinic site and were greeted by the praise songs of the church members waiting to be seen. I remember thinking the people had so little, but they were rejoicing for what was provid- ed. " Maria feels she earned not only the knowledge she gained in the medical sense, but the respect for another culture. Maria is not only a member of the International Medical Outreach program, but recently served as its director. Says Maria, " I was drawn to FSU because of challenging academics as well as re- nowned scientific faculty. " She is undertaking a Directed Individual Study Research Project under one of her favorite professors, Dr. Robert Reeves. Her research topic is " The Cloning and Expression of the argW Gene of Escherichia Coli. " After Maria graduates with her degree in Biological Science she plans to attend medical school. " My goal as a future physician is to provide health care to this growing population of people who do not have the resources to receive the medical care they need, " Maria says.

" The opportunities provided to student athletes at Florida State are obvious, What are not so obvious are the ex- periences beyond sports that many athletes gain, Me- gan Head has made her university experience richer by not only excelling in academics, but also by participat- ing in community service projects, Throughout her role as Special Events Coordinator for Helping Every Little Person (HELP) and her participation with the Radio Reading Service, which broadcasts read- ings of the local newspaper for sight-impaired people, Megan has shown compassion and a willingness to reach out to the community, She also has served as the Bat Girl and Spirit Coordinator for FSU ' s Baseball team, and has been active in Dance Marathon, Megan not only chose FSU for its superlative scholastics, " but also for all of the traditions, and for the friends " she hoped to make. This doesn ' t mean she ' s relaxed her academic standards, She ' s made a place for herself on the Dean ' s List since 2002. She is a Torch Night Recipient, and is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Phi Eta Sigma, and Honors in the Major. She will soon graduate with a degree in Mass Media. Law school is probably her next step. One thing is for certain, Megan will be a leader wherever her scholastic pursuits take her. Megan Head Department of Communication peopfr - o abriel Bouch dwater Scholarship Gabriel Bouch was a junior when he discovered a counter-exam- ple to a conjecture made by a well-known mathematician in the field of Knot Theory. Unraveling the conjecture was quite a feat for an undergraduate. But for Gabriel this was only the first in a series of impressive achievements, By his senior year he had received a Barry Goldwater Scholarship, awarded by a federally endowed agency established to honor the late senator. Gabriel was then invited to join the Pi Mu Epsilon mathematics honor society, whose membership is restricted to stu- dents ranked highly in their class. By graduation, the tally for this double major (in math and physics) was steadily increasing: he ' d completed the Honors Program and graduated summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA. Although Gabriel ' s academic life invokes the image of a student stationed at his computer, books, or lab 24 7, he ' s kept a fine bal- ance, spending three years as a juggler in the FSU Flying High Circus. " I had a great experience as an undergraduate at Florida State, " Gabriel says, " and made strong connections with professors in the mathematics and physics departments. It followed naturally to continue my studies in a program that I had found to be academi- cally stimulating and personally rewarding. " And rewards keep coming. As a graduate student, he has been a two-time recipient of a University Fellowship and was awarded the Goodner Teaching Award. Gabriel is currently doing research in mathematical physics with Dr. Phil Bowers, and the two are col- laborating on a paper they hope to submit for publication this fall.

But what is the meaning behind the Greek letters that appear all over Florida State ' s campus? What impact do they truly have on the people and the campus that they come in contact with? Striving to improve and enhance the campus of Florida State University, Greek Life members eagerly participate in many campus organizations. Using the leadership skills they have learned from with- in their organizations, these students set out with a mission to get involved and encourage others to do the same. From smaller groups and clubs, to larger, campus-run organizations such as Dance Mara- thon, Greek members can be found everywhere participating and becoming active on Florida State ' s campus and in the Tallahassee community as well. With each house hosting their own philanthropic event, Greek members are passionate about giving back to the community and becoming devoted to certain benefits and charities. For example, the philanthropy hosted by Zeta Tau Alpha is their 5K Race to Live held in the spring, and all profits are donated to the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation. It extends invitations to not only students, but to all members of the community as well. Another example of a philanthropic event, the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority is the proud host of their annual ADPiathlon, a fun filled day of pie-related relay events that benefits the Ronald McDonald House. All other houses put their own philanthropic event as well, and in turn all other organizations are eager to participate in them and donate to their worthy causes. On a larger scale, campus-run events such as Dance Mara- thon and Homecoming are looked forward to by the Greek commu- nity each year. A friendly competition between houses, each group strives to raise the most amount of money for Dance Marathon and Children ' s Miracle Network, and show their ultimate Florida State pride during Homecoming week. Not only do Greeks avidly partici- pate in these events, but most of the leadership and assistant posi- tions in both are occupied by members of the Greek community. In addition to their devotion to involvement on campus and within their own events, Greek members are active in clubs, sports, and in other organizations as well. Greek life is a great way to ex- tend beyond individual houses, develop valuable leadership skills and meet new people along the way. Not only is passion encouraged, but it is apparent in all of the activities that Greeks participate in. sisters Tania Alidina, Amanda Allgier, Jennifer Alster, Rachel Ashley, Laura Bagge, Jordan Baldwin, Laura Bandel, Lisa Barryzel, Jessica Beers, Jaclyn Benghiat, Jackie Brooke, Hilaree Caldwell, Brittany Canasi, Lee Carella, Morgan Carter, Rachel Chandler, Rachel Church, Kara-Lyn Clary, Ashley Cline, Amanda Cokinos, Nicole Coniglio, Natalie Custodio, Kalen Dalrymple, Meredith DAngelo, Maria Delia Guardia, Meghan Detweiler, Amanda DeYoung, Jen- nifer Didden, Danielle Dorman, Kathryn Doyle, Ali Dunn, Kathrine Elza, Laura Engel, Caitlin Etherton, Colleen Fagan, Ashley Fisher, Katherine Fromm, Jacqueline Gardin- er, Jennifer Gay, Jacqueline Glerum, Allison Goodman, Me- gan Griffin, Christina Grove, Carrie Gustafson, McKenna Haggerty, Jenna Harper, Jessica Harrison, Jessica Heinrichs, Lauren Hodde, Brittany Horwitt, Margaret Howard, Sarah Howell, Holly Hughes, Lyndsay Inmon, Brittani Jones, Heather Kacos, Catherine Kane, Jaimie Keele, Jane King, Kirsten Klein, Kristin Korth, Susan LaClaire, Whitney La- gergren, Lyndsay Larkin, Sarah Lawrence, Tanya Leis, Kary Lemons, Lauren Masterson, Helen Matas, Amanda Mazzel- la, Maegan McCann, Caitlin McDonald, Michelle Miller, Jenna Mock, Clare Moloney, Mary Moloney, Kasey Morris, Alison Murphy, Alexis Murphy, Brittany North, DAnna Osceola, Melissa Palori, Candice Paparodis, Alison Parker, Stephanie Pelaez, Christina Pepe, Aimee Phipps, Monique Pillinger, Alisha Pineiro, April Pingol, Cara Potoka, Me- gan Potter, Kaylee Pratt, Joanna Quraishi, Tracy Randall, Samantha Raynor, Kimberly Reinhardt, Emily Resimont, Dianne Roberts, Catherine Roscart, Colleen Ryan, Mary- ann Rybnicky, Mary Alison Sailer, Danielle Sandoz, Ashley Sarvis, Erin Schroeder, Rachel Seiden, Keely Shannon, Kari Sibilia, Jessica Singer, Haley Thornhill, Ashley Tippins, Amy Tomaszewski, Cara Valenti, Michelle Vanderdoes, Molly Venters, Danielle Volanti, Heather Walker, Megan Waltzer, Lindsay West, Rachel White, Lindsey Womack Nickname: Alpha Chi, A-Chi-O Founding Date: October 15, 1885 Founding Location: DePauw University Chapter: Beta Eta Date Established at FSU ' A 929 Colors: Scarlet red Olive green Symbol: Lyre Flower: Red Carnation Mascot: Angel Annual Philanthropy: Domestic Violence Awareness, the Mac- Dowell Colony and Alpha Chi Omega Foundation The ladies of the Beta Eta chapter of Alpha Chi Omega celebrate another great year on Florida State ' s campus.

ADPi proudly represents in organizations ranging from SGA to the Student Alumni As- sociation to even prestigious honor societies such as Omicron Delta Kappa and Mortarboard. This past year has been a very busy one for then; they kicked off the school year participating in many sorority and fraternity philanthro- pies as well as participating and winning Homecoming overall. During the spring semester, ADPi took part in FSU ' s largest school wide philanthropy, Dance Marathon, with over 40 dancers and several committee members and assistants. They helped raise $270, 511 for the Children ' s Miracle Net- work and gladly won third place. They are also very committed to their philanthropy, which benefits the Ronald McDonald House through our annual ADPi-athlon competition hosted in April. ADPi is also very proud to have members on the Golden Girls dance team, the all-girl and co-ed cheerleading squads, Garnet and Gold Guides and the FSU Batgirls.

They take great pride in our strong commitment to both their own philanthropy as well as others around campus. The Alpha Sigma chapter of Delta Zeta contributes to their national philanthropy aid to the speech and hearing impaired, in several ways. A portion of our monthly dues is donated to Gallaudet University and the House and Ear Institute through our National Headquarters. They also sponsor their own campus philanthropy, the Delta Zeta Greek Cup. The Greek Cup is an all day soccer tournament they hold each spring. Both sororities and fraternities are encouraged to get involved and the proceeds are given to National Headquarters for them to donate to help the speech and hearing impaired. Another way they help our national philanthropy is by competing in campus philanthropies. Whenever Delta Zeta places in another organization ' s philanthropy, the fraternity or soror- ity who sponsored the event often makes a donation to our national phi- lanthropy. Delta Zeta is constantly participating in campus activities such as Homecoming and Dance Marathon. They raised thousands of dollars to benefit Children ' s Miracle Network and during Homecoming, their skit placed first.

These ideals encourage social involvement, academic achievement, leadership and dedicated to service. Sisters can be found participating in all aspects of the Greek and university communities. From FSU cheerleaders to Student Sen- ators, honor societies to community service activities, Gamma Phi ' s are evident on campus. Their priority is to set a principle of loving sisterhood and lifelong friendships. Through socials, sisterhood re- treats, various campus events, and philanthropic functions they create memories that bond them as sisters.

She wanted to create a society that was different than all the other sororities on her campus. She felt the need to emphasize a very close sisterhood, and included ladies with high goals and ideals. Delta Delta Delta sorority was founded upon the principle of, " Be- ing a society that shall be alike to all and think more or a girl ' s inner self and character than of her personal appearance. " The motto that all Delta Delta Delta members are held to is; " Let us steadfastly love one another. " Their na- tional philanthropy is St. Jude ' s Hospital, and they have an event each semester to help raise money for this charity. They are also active members in Florida State ' s Dance Marathon philanthropy. Dance Marathon is a weekend event, where volunteers stay on their feet for a whole weekend and dance. Tri-Delta won first place this year, and together every organization involved raised about $270,000. Also one of our members, Jaimee Colley, was picked as Panhallenic President this year. Their goals for the future are to uphold the standards that our sorority was founded upon, and to constantly grow and mature with each other. Their sisterhood is very important to us, and they always strive for a strong bond between their members. They try to stay very active in all Florida State ' s events. They support the Seminoles at games, charity events, and all Greek Life oppor- tunities offered.

Delta Gamma ' s primary purpose is to create an environment for its members in which lasting friendships are established and in which members find the processes, the experiences and the disciplines that will stimulate clear thought. Its aim is to foster an atmosphere in which women will de- velop a deeper love and consideration for mankind, a more profound un- derstanding of the purpose of life and a basic wisdom upon which to build their lives. Delta Gamma encourages active participation in all areas of Flor- ida State University ' s campus. They strive to motivate members to enrich their lives by involving themselves in other organizations around the univer- sity. As a sorority, They are committed supporters of all activities and events held at Florida State University. Delta Gamma does not only fully supports the university, but they also focus our ideals on giving back to the Tallahas- see community through philanthropic events and other community service projects.

Thetas participate and hold leadership positions in various organizations, such as Panhellenic Exec, Golden Girls, Order of Omega, Dance Marathon Overall, FSU sports teams, FSView, Greek BASIC, Seminole Boosters, Lady Renegades, College Republicans Democrats, FSU Student Government, various clubs, medical associations and honor societies, and many more. Every year Kappa Alpha Theta holds our Philanthropy " Kats C Bats " , a waffle-ball tournament that takes during the spring at the Intramural fields. All sororities and fraterni- ties are invited to participate, as well as IM teams and teams from various dorms around campus. While all participants play and have fun, all the money being raised is donated to CASA- Court Appointed Special Advocates. Theta finds that participation in other Sorority and Fraternity Philanthropies is also extremely important. While having a good time competing a nd often winning at these philanthropic events, they realize that they are sisters of a much bigger Panhellenic com- munity. While Kappa Alpha Theta promotes participation in campus activities and orga- nizations, they also value academic achievement. With many members on the Deans List, their chapter continually succeeds in scholastic achievement, ranking in the Top 5 among Panhellenic sororities in GPA every year. While academics, campus involvement, and community service are all important to Kappa Alpha Theta, it is thier Sisterhood that we cherish most. They leave FSU with cherished memories and lasting friendships. After all, they are Thetas for a lifetime. . .

Their chapter was chartered on November 4, 1904. Over the years, Kappa Delta has embraced many FSU traditions and celebrations. They work hard to support not only the campus but also the Greek communities. Their members are well-accomplished in academics, community service, and social life. They al- ways strive to join outside campus organizations, achieve leadership positions, and provide leadership within their organization. It is the strong sisterhood that enables them to attain such feats and they are blessed to have a helpful and involved alum- nae association. This group of Tallahassee women and their families provide endless guidance and support. Every spring. Kappa Delta hosts a philanthropy called Manhunt, which is a two day event consisting of paintball tournaments. Local businesses and campus organizations compete the first day, and fraternal gentlemen compete the second day. This year, Kappa Delta included sororities in participation by hosting a trunk show, of which a portion of the proceeds went to Prevent Child Abuse of America and Children ' s Home Society of Florida. Kappa Delta takes pride in finding a unique and fun way to raise money for such good causes. It is the merging of National Kappa Delta and Florida State University that makes this chapter so special. They take extreme delight in not only being dedicated Kappa Deltas but also dedicated Seminoles! Every day, they strive for that which is honorable, beautiful, and superior.

MfryvW Founded in 1870 at Monmouth College, Kappa Kappa Gamma is one of the oldest women ' s fraternities. An international chapter, their sister- hood extends over 131 collegiate chapters and over 330 alumni associations worldwide. In Kappa, not only do they strive to enrich the college experience overall, but their sisterhood also encourages academic excellence, involvement in organizations on campus, and the creation of friendships that will last for a lifetime. Active on FSU ' s campus, Kappas can be found participating in many organizations. Lacrosse, The FSU Renegade, Lady Spirithunters, Golden Ace Ladies, GAMMA, Order of Omega, Greek Activities Council, Emerging Leaders, Orientation Leaders, and NSCS are just some of these groups. Home- coming is always a chance for their sisters to show their Seminole pride and their ladies work hard to show just how much it means to us to be a Nole. For Dance Marathon, their ladies take part of the largest philanthropy on Florida States campus, and devote hours on end to a cause that is held to closely to their hearts. On a national level, Kappas donate their time and attention to RIF (Reading is Fundamental), and work with the Gretchen Everhart School creat- ing and adapting books for their students. In other philanthropies, they have reached first place in Sandslam, first place in Relay for Life two years in a row, and among other accomplishments they have also had ladies in positions of overall Dance Marathon representatives as they strive for leadership, service, and sisterhood.

Their three founders Mary, Mary, and Martha gave Phi Mu its guid- ing principles of Love, Honor, and Truth. Phi Mu ' s colors are rose and white with a rose carnation as their flower and Sir Fidel, the lion, as their mascot. " Les Soures Fideles " is their open motto that means Our Faithful Sisters. This sorority is faithful to their unbreakable bond and sisterhood as well as their commitment to service and tradition. Phi Mu hosts its annual Philanthropy, Grandslam, where all the Fraternity men come out to play in a baseball tourna- ment to help raise thousands of dollars for the Children ' s Miracle Network. This past year Phi Mu has participated in various activities on campus including intramural sports, philanthropies, and dance marathon. Their strive to succeed has won them awards such as Miss Regatta for Phi Kappa Tau, 1st in women ' s softball overall, Phi Delta Theta ' s Bed race champions, sorority kickball champions, and 2nd place in Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s Sweetheart Pag- eant. Phi Mu is not just a group of girls living in a house attending socials and hayrides, but individuals making a difference in the community. There are sisters leading youth groups and participating in numerous community service projects nationwide. With such love and strength these girls look up to fellow alumni such as Anne Bowden, wife of FSU football coach, Bobby Bowden, and Evett Simmons, President of the National Bar Association. As the year comes to an end, Phi Mu would like to say congratulations to their Graduating Seniors of 2006.

They pride ourselves on being women of integrity, and strive for excellence in everything that we do on campus. They work hard to uphold the long, rich history in value sand tradition upon which they were founded. Every spring they put on the All Fraternity Review, a popular phi- lanthropy on campus that raises money for our National Philanthropy, the Arrowmont School for the Arts. They also are very involved in our local phi- lanthropy, links to literacy. Through links to literacy they spend countless hours promoting literacy within the community and reading to children at elementary schools. They show our school spirit across campus by having members in- volved in numerous and diverse organizations, from Lady Spirit Hunters to Student Government to Orientation Leaders. They also exemplify FSU spirit by being active participants in Homecoming, Dance Marathon, and many other philanthropies. For the future, they plan to continue to help their philanthropies grow and advance as an organization every year by be- coming more involved than they already are on campus.

Although they are the newest sorority on campus, they have worked hard this past year to make a name for ourselves. They started off on the right foot this fall by placing third overall in Homecoming. SDT has also participated in numerous community service activities including Dance Marathon, Relay for Life, and other programs that are run solely through their house such as donating troop care packages, pro- viding hurricane relief, and adopting children through Big Brother and Big Sister. Sigma Delta Tau ' s philanthropy proceeds are given to " Prevent Child Abuse America " and in addition to their own philanthropy, they always par- take in other Greek Philanthropies. This past semester they placed first in Delta Delta Delta ' s Tug of War, second place in Alpha Epsilon Pi ' s Greek Idol, and third place in Tau Epsilon Phi ' s Caddy Shack. Not only did the Sig Delts attend every football game this fall, but they even let our parents in on the excitement. During Parents Weekend, all of their parents were invited to watch the football game with them, enjoy a BBQ afterwards, and attend a brunch at thier house the following day. Ad- ditionally, SDT has done a great job in IM sports this past year. They took third place in the 200 free-style in swimming, placed third overall in Eight Ball, and won all three of our regular season matches in bowling. They hope to become one of the top teams in Flag Football next year and to compete for a championship title in Volleyball. Sigma Delta Tau has had an amazing school year, and they look forward to even more success next year! mm --»■ w ' !

In 1992, Zeta Tau Alpha adopted Breast Cancer Research as the Fraternity ' s national philanthropy. This is done partially through sponsoring the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. At the Beta Gamma chap- ter, they host two fundraisers a year to raise money for our philanthropy. In the fall semester, they host a flag football tournament, Crown Classic. Boys around campus and the Tallahassee community gather together for a day of football and fun. Around 64 teams participate in this fun event. In the spring they host our annual Race to Live, which is a 5K race that gets the entire campus and community involved. Last year they raised over $20,000. The motto of Zeta Tau Alpha " Seek the Noblest " can be seen through leadership positions held by Zetas in many of Florida State University ' s cam- pus organizations. Their chapter plays an active role in the Florida State Uni- versity community through participation in campus wide community service efforts as well as events such as Homecoming and Dance Marathon that have become a part of Florida State ' s growing tradition.

These girls were pre- paring themselves for Florida State ' s Sorority Recruitment Week. Recruitment week, filled with emotion and exhaustion, is a full sev- en days designed so that each and, every girl gets a chance to meet some of the girls from every single sorority house. The first two days, known as ice water days are set up so all fifteen houses are visited between the two days. During these first two days, first impressions are made and countless introductions take place. After the completion of ice water days, the process called mutual selection takes place. During this process, both the sororities and the girls going through recruitment, also known as Potential New Members, make choices and selections depending on which girls are best fit for each house. The next two days, known as philanthropy days, the girls re-visit the houses and take part in each sorority ' s craft to benefit the charity the house represents. After learning about each charity and getting a better feel for the sorority, the girls take part in an- other round of mutual selection. The next round of days is known as skit day. During skit day, each house performs a play or skit portraying the sorority on a more personal level. Another round of mutual selection takes place and the final day of visiting houses begins. Preferential day, or " pref day " gives the potential new mem- bers a glimpse into sorority rituals or ceremonies. Pref day is a much more serious and formal day and serves as a last chance for the girls in the sorority and the girls going through recruitment to figure out which house best suits them. After the day has ended, one last round of mutual selection takes place before everyone goes home for a sleepless night filled with excitement and wonder as to which house they will call their own. The last day, known as bid day, begins with a closing cere- mony highlighting all the ups and downs of the past week. Following the ceremony, each girl receives a bid and a T-shirt corresponding with their new sorority house. After receiving and accepting their bid, the girls run down to their new home where the excited girls in the sorority are waiting with open arms to welcome them into their new family. members Ahmad Abuznaid Jeremane Blackwood Keith Bonds Derran Brown Marvin Brown Chris Coleman Clifford Counts Janco Damas Theron Decastro Pierre Desrosiers Ravel Dupiton Chris Evans Marcus Finley Josh Fuller Dorian George Larry Green Kourtney Hahn Phillip Lawrence Tyrell Perry Martin Reese Sam Richards Donte Riddick Victor Smith Bryan Spells Darryl Walker Yvesner Zamar Nickname: Alpha Founding Date: December 4, 1906 Chapter: Iota Delta Date Established at FSU: April 5, 1974 Colors: Black Old Gold Flower: Yellow Rose Annual Philanthropy: March of Dimes i Alph Waternitv- Inc. h Since its founding on December 4, 1906, Alpha Phi AlpmN -aternity, Inc. has supplied voice and vision to the struggle of African-Americans and people of color around the world. Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African- Americans, was founded at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York by seven college men who recognized the need for a strong bond of Brotherhood among African descendants in this country. The visionary founders, known as the " Jewels " of the Frater- nity, are Henry Arthur Callis, Charles Henry Chapman, Eugene Kinckle Jones, George Biddle Kelley, Nathaniel Allison Murray, Robert Harold Ogle, and Vertner Woodson Tandy. The Fraternity initially served as a study and support group for minority stu- dents who faced racial prejudice, both educationally and socially, at Cornell. The Jewel founders and early leaders of the Fraternity succeeded in laying a firm foundation for Alpha Phi Alphas principles of scholarship, fellowship, good character, and the uplifting of humanity. Alpha Phi Alpha chapters were developed at other colleges and universities, many of them historically black institutions, soon after the founding at Cornell. While continuing to stress academic excellence among its members. Alpha also recognized the need to help correct the educational, economic, political, and social injustices faced by African-Americans. Alpha Phi Alpha has long stood at the forefront of the African- American community ' s fight for civil rights through leaders such as: W.E.B. DuBois, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., Edward Brooke, Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Andrew Young, William Gray, Paul Robeson, and many others. executive I5t arcf President Pierre Desrosiers, VPSam Richards, Treasurer Donte Riddick greek Cufe - CW toffW rfrv On May 24, 1973, nineteen visionaries sought out to es%»lish a chapter that would embody an unconditional commitment to the Tallahassee community, impact the lives of the Florida State student body, and epitomize Delta Sigma Theta ' s illustrious ideals of sisterhood, scholarship, service, and Christian principles. Out of forty applicants, these nineteen dynamic and distinguished women were chosen to fulfill their quest and charter the Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The Kappa Epsilon Chapter is dedicated to service and excellence and since its inception has achieved recognition for its extensive involvement on campus and in the community. The chapter holds the distinction of receiving the Minerva Award in 1993, National Pan Hellenic Council ' s Sorority of the Year, several Extravaganza champion- ships, and National Pan Hellenic Councils Greek Woman of the Year. In keeping with the prestige of the organization the members of Kappa Epsilon continue to demonstrate high scholastic achievement while exemplifying strong leader- ship abilities. The devastating divas of the Kappa Epsilon Chapter contributed to the community by volunteering in numerous community centers, schools, nursing homes, as well as involvement in coordinating and implementing activities that address political and social awareness issues. Their significant acts of servitude also include monetary contribu- tions such as the Wandretia Warren Scholarship Fund and other charitable donations. As the future approaches, the Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta will proudly continue to strive and uphold the exceptional legacy of this prolific and profound organization. v w- . ■■■•, ' w %s J| I V ' w ;: President Tanesha Brewton, 1st VP Allison Hamilton, 2nd VP Ashlee Thomas, Record- ing Secretary Victoria Olds, Corresponding Secretary Crystall Williams, Treasurer Audra Wilson, Financial Secretary Jennifer Garrett, Sergeant-at-Arms Chantal Peacock, Parlia- mentarian Cindy Motta, Chaplain Asha Brewer, Advisors Phyllis Bush Carla Adams, Southern Regional Representative Nykeah Cohen, Southern Regional Nominating Com- mittee Member Allison Hamilton i 1 ' j.. ■•■ I : fi members Debontina Adamson, Arielle Ball, Tiara Ball, Juana Bethel, Arlease Brady, Asha Brewer, Tanesha Brewton, Christina Jade Butler, Ashley Cleveland, Taeyjuana Cur- ry, Chanel Drummond, Alteasha Ervin, Taneishia Fields, Jennifer Garrett, Allison Hamilton, Chev- onne James, Sophia Johnson, Ter- rin Jones, Latoya Legree, Xion Lester, Charlaine Loriston, Vasti Marcello, Shantall McDowell, Kiesha Moodie, Cindy Motta, Chardae Murray, Victoria Olds, Chantel Peacock, Antoinette Powell, Marsha Robinson, Ashlee Thomas, Crystall Williams, Audra Wilson, Tamisha Wood _________ Nickname: Delta Founding Date: January 13, 1913 Chapter: Kappa Epsilon Date Established at FSU: May 24, 1973 Colors: Crimson Creme Symbol: Elephant Flower: African Violet Annual Philanthropy: Habitat for Humanity members Trey Cooper Omar Mcferren Daniel McKnight Dwayne McKnight Marlon Napier Nic Turner Louis Valsaint Nickname: IOTA Founding Date: September 19, 1963 Date Established at FSU: March 4, 2002 Colors: Charcoal Brown Gilded Gold Symbol: Centaur Flower: Yellow Rose Annual Philanthropy: IOTA Youth Alliance, The National IOTA Foundation, Digital Heritage Initiative Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. was founded on September 19, 1963 at Morgan State College now known as Morgan State University.

They were the only black males and wanted to form a group that would exemplify their unity on campus and after much deliberation, they decided it would be best to get the support of an organization which was already established. These nine men chose the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, and with the help of the Chi Omega and Upsilon Psi chapters, Chi Theta was founded. Chi Theta was the first black Greek organization at Florida State University and with each step, Omega blazed the trail for other black Greeks. The nine men from our chapter line called themselves the " Super Fine Nine " and they saw Chi Theta chartered on August 1 1970, and since then, have instilled Omegas ideals for all to follow. This chapter strives to perpetuate ideas of our founders by participating in Achievement Week, Social Action, Talent Hunt, Scholarship and other community projects. The members of Chi Theta have continued to spread Omegas influence in the community and on campus by following these ideals. Omega men have always been active in stu- dent government. The brothers have been elected to senate positions, as well as the president ' s Committee. We most importantly have taken a strong and active interest in black Student Union. Chi Theta was named National Undergraduate Chapter of the year for 2002, 2003, and 2004. Chi Theta will continue to do the utmost to exemplify our four cardinal principles, Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift.

It started as a traditional feel one that was passed down to our University by the Seminole Tribe. A feeling of bravery, accomplishment, and the ability to be unconquered and unique was what layered the surface. What I ' ve found over the years I have attended Florida State is something that will lie deep with- in me for the remainder of my years to come. If an out- sider were to ask me what it feels like to be a Florida State Seminole, this is what I ' d reply: It ' s like the first day Tallahassee weather goes under one hundred degrees and you can walk to class without sweating. It is receiving a high score on your first test in a challenging class. It is the first time you step foot in DOAK Campbell stadium and see thousands of people lift their arm in glory to do the Chop! It is an indescribable feeling that overcomes you on your drive home for the holidays as you pass more Florida State tags than any other State school ' s. Suddenly, you find that your arm is half way out the window, doing the Chop at the car full of Gators in the left lane. It is finding that it is possible to meet new people everyday and to make new friends with whom you will always have a common bond. You have chosen to attend a University overflowing with pride, spirit and a uniqueness of its own. A univer- sity full of friendly faces, A place you can return to years later; your home away from home with those who have helped mold you into who you are. This place is Florida State University, and being a part of it means being able to encompass the ideals of those before us and merge them with our own to help us become our own individu- als. By believing we are brave, aiming towards our goals in anticipation, and standing fearless and proud amongst our peers, we stand unconquered and feel what it ' s like to be a Florida State Seminole. ■■■■■■ . ■ ■ . . ■ ..... .-. ...■.■■ brothers Juliuis Arguez, Maury Azerad, Aaron Ber- man, Joey Blattman, Corey Chartan, Mi- chael Chucker, Jeff Cohen, Geoff Deutsch, Scott Durst, Laurence Eckstien, Matthew Enslein, Nick Farber, James Finder, Matt Flashenburg, Michael Forrester, Steve Frisch, Michael Gerson, Danny Goldberg, Eric Goldsmith, Andrew Goodman, Chris Graham, Daniel Hanser, Jordan Heft, Kev- in Hirshorn, David Hoffman, Brett How- ard, Ben Kauffman, Matt Kauffman, Da- vid Klitzner, Richard Koblick, Zach Kring, Jeff Kutner, Ryan Liss, Zachary Marder, Brent Modlin, Andrew Neiberg, Jonathan Ozner, Andrew Panos, Adam Peel, Daniel Pullman, William Romine, Garrett Ruy- tenbeek, Max Schneider, Mike Schwartz, Brian Seidel, Randy Shaw, Matth Shech- ter, David Shiftman, Andrew Sisisky, Shaq Spiegel, Eric Steinlauf, Eric Stratton, Josh Strauch, Josh Strom, Scott Thaler, Brian Treiser, Chris Urso, Adam Vacarro, Erick Weinstein, Luke Williams Nickname: AEPi Founding Date: November 7, 1913 Founding Location: New York University Chapter: Phi Tau Date Established at FSU: November 10, 1968 Colors: Gold Blue Symbol: A Lion Rampant Annual Philanthropy: Greek Idol The Phi Tau chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi prides itself on being known as a gentleman ' s fraternity. Each semester AEPi rushes only the high- est quality of potential brothers in the hopes of making them a part of the fraternity and instilling into them the values and morals a brother of Alpha Epsilon Pi should live by: honesty, perseverance, faith, mutual helpfulness, and humility. The chapter is very active in the Greek and FSU communities, participating in many philanthropic and charitable activities. The chapter also works hard each year to put on and run its own philanthropy, Greek Idol. Although this is only its second year running, Greek Idol has grown to be one of the biggest and most successful Greek philanthropies on cam- pus. Participants from sororities compete to win a range of prizes and to help raise money for SADD. In 2002, as a result of hard work and a strong brotherhood, AEPi won first place in Homecoming and was the runner up lor Fraternity of the Year. The fraternity participates in all intramural sports and finished second in its division this year in flag football. The chapter thrives on its strength of brotherhood and tries to convey that notion throughout campus by being leaders academically and socially. AEPi consistently has one of the highest GPAs among the Greek organizations on campus and has the high- est national GPA of all fraternities. Through all of its accomplishments from hard work, a strong brotherhood and integrity, AEPi exemplifies FSU spirit and pride in everything it does.

Through this time period the faces have changed, the shelters have changed, and size has changed. Through all of these changes one thing has always remained the same with the members. In order to be a member of the Delta Phi chapter you must meet the standards of a Delt Gentlemen: a man who adheres and upholds the morals of the chapter. A man who knows how to treat a woman correctly and stands up when she enters the room. A Delt Gentlemen is a man who conducts himself responsibly and there are 110 of them in the chapter right now. This past year has been a very interesting one for the chapter. With the absence of a house for this entire year the fraternity has undergone its highs and lows. We initiated 46 new men in the fall, our biggest pledge class ever. We have been very active around campus this year as well. We have domi- nated in intramurals winning multiple fraternity championships and even an all campus championship. We have also been very active in philanthropies as well; in fact we won the Tridelt Field Day this year. We are currently finish- ing up plans for a brand new philanthropy new fall that we are really excited about. As well as being excited about our new philanthropy next fall we are really looking forward to the house reopening on August 1st. With the reopening of the refurbished house and a solid Fall ' 06 pledge class we are anxiously anticipating next year. executive board President Keelan Cottle VP Joe Myers Treasurer Lucas Amaral Rush Chair Chasen Allen Ritual Chair Mike Masi Academic Chair Alex Fumagali Pledge Educator Matt Raynor Recording Secretary Kevin Tomaskso Alumni Relations Josh Pullen greek ftfc - Once a year you may have seen a house surrounded by a huge wooden fort. This would be the work of the men in Kappa Alpha. Founded in 1865 at Washington and Lee University, these men have captured the attention of the entire campus. This year the fraternity has been awarded 1st place in homecom- ing, 2nd at Dance Marathon, and 2nd at the Greek Week Activities. Besides re- ceiving high rankings, KA has been involved in other student organizations and activities. Members participate with intramurals, philanthropies, community projects, adopt-a-street, government campaign involvement, SGA, and Insight. They even have a member, Ryan Powers, on the Student Senate. Kappa Alphas symbol is the Knight ' s Shield Displaying the Encircled Cross. Their colors are crimson and gold and they live by their motto of Dieu Et Les Danes. Every Greek organization has a philanthropy and theirs is the Mus- cular Distrophy Association. Herbert Hoover and Von Fischman (the drummer of the band Phish) are both members of the Kappa Alpha brotherhood. One of the most recognized events KA hosts is its Formal. The Old South formal is a weeklong event dedicated to the days of the old south. The brothers or KA parade around campus on foot or by horseback picking up their selected southern belles from their sorority house. It all ends in Amelia Island, FL with a traditional Old South Ball decorated with southern style and cheer. What is best is that everyone attending the ball is wearing traditional southern attire. Another event is the Convivium Formal. It is dedicated to the birth and life achievements of one the greatest respected generals of all time, Robert E. Lee of Old Virginia. ■MM utiv President Brock Pumphrey, VP Christian Velasco, Recording Secretary Fred McCon- nel, Corresponding Secretary Robin Alston, Historian Social Chair Adam Thames, Purser Jamie Connor, Parliamentarian Adam Frey, Sergeant at Arms Brett Ptack, Marshall Eddie Home e board President Nick Powell, VP John Waugh, Recording Secretary Ryan Little, Corre- sponding Secretary Parrish Owens, Histori- an I Social Chair C.J.

The fraternity was in the Top 5 for fall 2005 recruiting classes for Kappa Sigma. They have been implementing a more successful scholarship pro- gram that will help to ensure both individuals and the fraternity as a whole will rise in the GPA standings. Their annual philanthropy Margaritaville Madness, which raises money for the Save the Manatees foundation, was un- fortunately postponed this year, but will be back in action next fall. This year our greatest accomplishments were not those that can be found on paper, but rather the bond that has grown between the members of this chapter and the outlook to strive for better things. This year they have been able to up attendance at all our events in- cluding Dance Marathon, Homecoming, philanthropies, socials, and broth- erhood events. With this new drive they are expected great things in the upcoming year including the addition of a new philanthropy added to our events. Kappa Sigma at FSU is making great steps in the right direction and will continue to proceed on this path. The fraternity is proud of the ac- complishments that have been made over the past year and look forward to adding more in the coming year.

In its fifty-four years on campus, Phi Delta Theta has excelled in all aspects of campus life. First and foremost, Phi Delts are scholars and always strive for academic excellence. The Chapter also excels at athletics, having won intramurals 21 out of the last 55 years. Phi Delts are involved and are leaders in many campus organiza- tions and clubs from the Student Government Association to the Intrafrater- nity Council. Phi Delt at Florida State has recently been awarded the Har- vard Trophy, naming us the best Phi Delt chapter in the nation. Phi Delt is also actively involved in philanthropic work as the annual bedraces raise money for Lou Gehrig ' s Disease and Phi Delta Theta along with Delta Delta Delta and Alpha Chi Omega, raised the most money for Dance Marathon in the history of the event.

A Pike is a leader, an athlete, a scholar and most importantly, a gentleman. Since returning to FSU in 2000, they have worked hard to exemplify these four cornerstones. Pi Kappa Alpha ' s awards include Fraternity of the Year three times, the Overall Intramural Championship three years running, breaking the record for the largest point margin in FSU history, and re-breaking that same record the following year. They have also been awarded the Smythe Award, an award is given out to the top 14 Pike Chapters in the nation, for the fourth year in a row. Pike has also been home to some of the campus ' most recognizable leaders. Chad Reeves is the newly appointed Student Body Vice President, following in the foot- steps of former Senate President ProTempor, Sean Drake, Student Body Treasurer, Ozzy Cuan, and Student Body President, Patrick Sullivan. Brother Balazs Khoor is the Presi- dent of the Pre-Law Society, and Tom Pitts is the President Creator of the new Pre-Med Six ietv. Varsity athletics is another staple of the chapter, and they currently have more varsity athletes than all the other fraternities combined. They range from DJ Norris and Joe Surratt, two starters on the football team to Pete Crane, captain of the diving team. A review of their accomplishments from this past year include: Fourth consecutive Smythe Award, third Intramural Championship in a row, all-fraternity soccer champions, all- campus flag football champions, garnet division basketball champions, initiating the largest fall pledge class in our history and a community service trip to Mississippi for Katrina relief efforts with nearly fifty Pikes. In the future, they look forward to more community service opportunities and continuing a tradition of excellence in recruitment, athletics, and leadership; all areas that have made the chapter a nationally recognized organization. m ' B B SBEL B %j f A4m Ibb b b b b b H Jk. v Bf • K,(S;¥tf !f VAYAYfl m. i B a4Hf % .

The brothers have worked very hard to participate within campus by joining scalp hunters, student senate, SGA, and other student organiza- tions. With the motto " Not for years, but a lifetime " it ' s easy to see how this is a true brotherhood. Every spring since 1997 Pi Lam has hosted the annual Wild at Heart Line Dance Philanthropy benefiting the American Heart Associa- tion. This event has become very popular and celebrated among the Greek community, especially with the National Panhellenic Conference sorori- ties. Each sorority fields a team of 8-12 dancers and they perform a five- minute dance routine with popular music that showcases their talent. This year Chi Omega won first place for line dance 2006. Pi Lam also likes to participate in other Greek philanthropies such as Delta Gamma ' s Anchor- splash where they won 2nd place. Pi Lambda Phi not only knows how to raise money for charities, but to have a good time. Every year they throw a " party bus " date func- tion. Each brother brings a date where they ride around Tallahassee in style dressed as gangsters. The event has become popular over the years and is starting to become a mainstay in the Pi Lam tradition.

With a strong dedication to commitment to both Florida State University and the Tallahassee community, Sigma Chi has been locally and nationally recognized, making this chapter one of the most revered and influential on campus. Recognized throughout the country, Sigma Chi at Florida State received its seventh significant chapter award within the last eight years. The much respected and distinguished reputation of Sigma Chi has given its brothers the opportunity to socialize with the very best Florida State has to offer, but beyond all this and more importantly, Sigma Chi given its brothers the opportunity to graduate with something much more rewarding and concrete: friendship.

In the fall, Sigma Nu won the overall Homecoming competition while being partnered with Alpha Delta Pi. In the spring, Sigma Nu took home the Gold Division of Dance Marathon paired with Chi Omega. Sigma Nu held the 2nd annual " Ballin ' for Barrett " basketball tournament in November. The tournament is set up in honor of brother Barrett Burchak who passed away on October 4, 2004. It is a 5-on- 5 tournament with all donations being made to the Barrett Burchak scholarship foundation. Brothers in Sigma Nu are involved in many other campus or- ganizations. Some include Order of Omega, Air Force ROTC, Orienta- tion Leaders, Dance Marathon Overall Committee and many others. The social functions held this year were all very success- ful. Events in the fall included a River Daze tubing trip, the Mexican themed Sigma Nuevo and their annual Christmas Party. The highlight was their Formal which took place over a November weekend in Savan- nah, Georgia. The spring was also very busy socially for Sigma Nu. Hayride, a semi-formal and their 5th annual " Get Nud " field party all were great events. w Commander Adam Britt, Internal Lt. Commander Nick Kent, External Lt.

Chapter: Florida Epsilon Colors: Purple Red Symbol: Sig Ep Heart Annual Philanthropy: Queen of Hearts The Florida Epsilon chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is proud to boast of yet another successful year. After their award-winning phi- lanthropy last year, charity has only become an even greater source of motiva- tion as well as a major theme. Sigma Phi Epsilon continues to exemplify this not only through its brotherhood, but the university too. The Sig Eps, along with the ladies of Alpha Delta Pi, brought home third place in this year ' s Dance Marathon and have already started planning how they will make the next one even better. Their athletics posted an incred- ible improvement in intramural sports, and the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is proudly the home to a number of Florida State ' s top athletic programs. Sigma Phi Epsilon brothers remain active in the student govern- ment and kept their involvement in the school community at an all time high. The most valued quality of the Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter remains at the basis of its structure and importance of brotherhood. The strength and numbers of the Sigma Phi Epsilon brotherhood proudly extends all of its ideals and virtues through a lifelong membership, which leaves a beneficial legacy that goes out to alumni but also to prospective members. ecu President Mike Ridgway, VP Programming Brandon Wheeler, VP Finance Scott Levine, VP Communications Mark Laivins, VP President Dani Bchara, VP Programming Andres Malave, VP Finance Justin Wein- stein, VP Communications Andres Balto- Brotherhood Development Janet Shapiro, VP dano, VP Brotherhood Development Billy Recruitment Chris Morgan, Social Chairmen Haughton, VP Recruitment Paul Clark, Trevor Hague, Secretary Bernie Kaplan Social Chairmen Teag Jones, Secretary Mike Sanchez - greek fe - iws efe tC I n The Epsilon Deuteron Chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi was initially installed at Florida State Uni- versity on the eighth day of May, 1954 with a chapter comprised of eleven charter members. From their humble roots, the brothers have always pursued excellence. The brotherhood ' s commitment to leadership has been exemplified in the classroom, on the athletic field, in campus politics and within the community. The gentlemen worked hard this year to garner the litany of accolades they now have under their belt. Academic distinction is routine for these gentleman. TEP is represented in the Deans List, FSU Honors program and a myriad of academic and leadership honoraries and fraternities throughout the University. In addition to ranking top 5 in the Garnet intramural division, brothers competed for FSU on varsity teams and as members of club sports teams. Members of the fraternity occupied seats on the Inter-Fraternity Council Executive Board, SGA Student Senate and Dance Marathon Overall Committee among many others. Other popular organizations brothers are involved with include Student Alumni Association, Seminole Student Boosters and Scalphunters. TEPs strive to be true to the ideal of service by giving unselfishly that which they have to of- fer, by contributing countless hours of service to the community as a group, as well as individually. " Ihey hosted two philanthropic events this year: the sorority golf tournament named " Caddyshack " in the fall and " Sorority Sing " , a vocal competition in the spring, both of which benefited the American Leukemia Society. But " all work and no play " does not constitute the life of a TEP. The gentlemen boasted an extensive calendar of date functions, socials and crushes this year. From football tailgates to local nightlife, the only thing that exceeds the brothers ' pursuit of excellence on campus is their penchant for partying. In their creed, the brothers declare, " to practice each day ftiendship, chivalry and service, thus keeping true to these, the three ideals of the founders of the fraternity. " Brotherhood is what sets Tau Epsilon Phi apart from the rest. Their camaraderie and dedica- tion to each other is unmatched. Above all, the life-long friendships forged are the paramount achieve- ment that the ttaternity values most and will treasure for eternity. : 1 to ' J i § ' ft r i- f f 1 w |gfe V;.. »j V V » ■ «. . ■■■■ W l ' ( ■ %r ' t 4 i mm NJlk lift ypkf i it WO 3 V.

" The choice to belong, the challenge to become " is the brotherhoods motto and since its founding at FSU in 1968, many quality men have chosen to meet that challenge and call TKE home.

Theta Chi participates heavily in Greek and university philan- thropies, earning 2nd place in Dance Marathon in February 2006 with their partners from Gamma Phi Beta, Theta Nu Xi and Pi Kappa Alpha. The Stadium Tunnel has been adopted by Theta Chi and is being trans- formed into a safer passageway. Theta Chi received the highest grade point average amongst the Interfraternity Council with a 3.27 cumulative GPA for Fall 2005, while being deeply involved in multiple organizations on campus. Theta Chi is rooted in the idea of brotherhood and utilizing its history and traditions to better shape each individual member and the university as a whole.

Whether wanting to branch out from a familiar group of friends or longing for an involvement on campus, Greek Life provides these among other opportunities for every kind of Nole. Comprised of four di- verse councils, Greek Life at Florida State not only encourages activity and leadership on campus, but it also opens many doors of friendships, memories, and opportunities that will last for a lifetime. Opening these doors are the four councils that embody Greek Life on Florida State ' s campus: The Interfraternity Council (IFC), a council of men ' s fraternities; The College Panhellenic Council (CPC), a council of women ' s fraternities; The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), a council of men ' s and women ' s fraternities; and the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), a multicultural and culturally based council. Each divi- sion creates numerous ways of involvement for students, but most of all, they each develop their own branch of brotherhood and sisterhood to create the foundation of all Greek Life at Florida State. A member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority and graduating senior, Jennifer Hoskins, recalls her first impressions of Greek Life at Flori- da State. " Everyone comes in with an unstable environment to college, and within an organization of Greek Life you are instantly provided with opportunities, leadership positions, and friendships. Not only that, but Greek Life also helps to create a smooth adjustment for college life. " Although being Greek has many positive aspects, the most impor- tant of these is the unity throughout a single organization. Accepting new members each semester, houses on this campus pride themselves on extending their brotherhood or sisterhood to future leaders and new brothers or sisters. While striving to accept and appreciate all members of an organization, houses embrace all differences, and unite on com- mon values to achieve this unity and friendship. Throughout this experi- ence, students turn into brothers and sisters, and strangers emerge as lifelong friends. Ranging from small tasks, such as recommending a professor, to larger circumstances, such as having a confidant to help in hardships, brothers and sisters in Greek organizations are not just fellow group members, but friends that care. Brotherhood and sisterhood means more than just simply wearing the same letters on a t-shirt. It truly con- nects someone with other students of similar interests, and challenges and encourages them to become a better person and a more confi- dant leader. No matter what the letters may be, it is truly the bonds of sister- hood and brotherhood that make Greek Life on this campus amazing. Within each house, the bonds keep growing as individual Greek mem- bers work together every day to not only strengthen their own organi- zation, but Greek Life on Florida State ' s campus as a whole. greek ftfe - uocv In the Spring of 2000, Maves Rariola and Rizcion Dagani worked with great nbition to establish an Asian-American Interest Sorority on the campus of The Florida tate University. They felt that FSU, with its growing Asian population, needed an or- inization that promoted leadership, timeless sisterhood, community service and Asian vareness. On February 19, 2001, eleven women became the FSU aKDPhi Charter ilass. On April 21, 2001, FSU became the newest aKDPhi colony - the thirtieth chapter f alpha Kappa Delta Phi, Inc. Each of the young women pledged to work hard to break ereotypes, build bonds with other Greek organizations, and to pass on the teachings and dues of the sorority. Not only was aKDPhi the first Asian-American Interest Sorority on campus, but ley also became the first Asian-Greeks in the state of Florida. We have also accomplished lot on our campus, especially being recognized as one of the top leaders on campus for ur philanthropy, breast cancer awareness for the Susan G.

We thrive on pro- toting Asian Awareness on the FSU campus, considering our Asian population is very w. In order to promote cultural awareness, we like to hold cultural workshops and per- rmances that represent our many different cultures.

Boasting 800 active members, it is the largest student-run organiza- tion on campus. Their contribution to Seminole spirit rides upon a combi- nation of a point system (www.seminolestudentboosters.com for the point breakdown) and athletic awareness. The website is home to regular event updates ranging from basketball to swim meets. Events like swim and track meets as well as tennis matches that typi- cally aren ' t as well attended as other athletics have experienced substan- cial turnout by Student Boosters. Baseball, basketball, and football games that have strong attendance host more garnet Nole Zone shirted students that take over huge blocks (300 thick at Bobby Bowden Stadium). " Student Boosters was conceived 2 years ago with a dream to in- crease attendance at all major sporting events. As of today we have over 800 active members, something we could have only dreamed of after such a short period of time. Our goal as an organization is to have two thousand members by the end of this year and four thousand members by the end of 2008. This is a feasible goal since Student Boosters has become more then just a spirit oriented group, we are a way for current student boosters to network with alumni through Champions Forum, and our proudest accom- plishment of starting a School Pep Rally each year before the first football game; ' said President Brian Stevens.

These ladies work hard to boost Seminole spirit, help out around the community and build a relationship with the students of Florida State. Every year only a select number of ladies at FSU are chosen to become part of the Lady Spirit Hunters. But, what exactly does it take to be a Lady Spirithunter? " We look for a well rounded and spirited FSU woman, " said President Christina Quintana. Equivalent to their immense Seminole pride, is the ladies work ethic. In addition to painting faces at a number of sporting and special events, the Lady Spirithunters are involved in numer- ous charities: The American Cancer Society, Children ' s Miracle Network, Camp Boggy Creek, and the local organization, Keep Tallahassee Beautiful, are just a few. The ladies also participate in homecoming every year and this year won the Homecoming ban- ner and were nominated for Best Organization of the Year. In addition to their hard work, the Lady Spirithunters take the time to have fun. The group hosts socials, takes part in intra- mural sports, and attends one away game every year. The group has no limit to what they can do. Their involvement with FSU and the community make thpem a true asset to the university.

SAA hosts several events on, as well as off campus throughout the year, The SAA serve as student representatives for all University Re- lations events to include hosting the President ' s Box for all home foot- ball games and partaking in the President ' s Ice Cream Social on Landis Green. They work closely with campus and the community every fall, organizing and planning the annual Homecoming Parade. Respon- sible for coordinating the Chief and Princess elections, the Homecom- ing Court halftime presentation, and hosting the Seminole Indian Tribe representatives, SAA strive to exemplify spirit and uphold the traditions of the Garnet and Gold. " The Student Alumni Association combines the best parts of FSU into one well-rounded experience; the students, the alumni and the timeless traditions. It is more than an organization, but a passionate group of students - a family - who work closely to not only build, but maintain the bridge between students and FSU alumni, " President Kris- tin Macak summarizes her sentiment and experiences with SAA. Another annual undertaking of the SAA is working with the Unit- ed Way and Hancock Bank to coordinate Downtown Get-Down. In 2005, SAA defeated seventy competing universities in the southeast by winning the Program of the Year Award at the Annual District Conference in Greensborough, North Carolina for its Homecoming en- deavors. As its motto states, SAA strives, " with pride in our Alma Ma- ter, the FSU Student Alumni Association unites TNtfrltla State University ' s past with its future. " I J « - .

The party holds the motto " first we listen, then we lead, " which they indeed do by working to improve the life of the students. By meeting with students, the members of Insight are able to learn their concerns. From this, they cre- ate their platform. Although the platform may be different each semester, the intention is always to improve quality of life for students. Past goals have included working to save Bright Fu- tures, eliminating Suntrust ATM fees, and starting the News- paper Readership Program. Some of the focuses for this fall are lowering textbook prices and improving the SAFE bus program. No matter what issues may_arise for students, In- sight will be up to the challenge. •M K rlr Fall 2005 Officers: President Laura Johnson, Vice President ot External Affairs Manuel Guarch, Vice President of Internal Affairs Jackeline Hernandez, Treasurer Aakash Petel, Membership Director Dana Vettel, Eli te Modelii loupe ill i : ier, m rreyGreg : erraro , Ru ' Jryant, Marlene Eve i Pateau, en Blsi n t a ( TWg- MpAacie £Mtm+ %-tn q-, Tk ttm 3 c, TkAbibA, ?

KJn n Lauren Gibson The Black Student Union offers students a form of iden- tity, a social life, and is the official voice on issues concerning black students. Founded in 1968, BSU seeks to develop unity among the black students so that in their strong numbers, they can express concerns with problems faced on campus. The Black Student Union attempts to create awareness to the Univer- sity community about issues relating to black culture through its sponsorship and involvement in programs on campus. By assuming this role, the Black Student Union plans and partici- pates in political and academic activities in hopes to bring out cultural awareness. One of the annual events BSU hosts is the Bobby E. Leach Ball that takes place in December in honor of Mr. Bobby E. Leach, former Vice-President of Student Affairs, who was the highest ranking black faculty member in Florida State University ' s history. He, in part, made a large con- tribution to the well-being of black students on Florida State ' s campus. Offering community service is one of the ways The Black Student Union gives back to the community through giving up their time to help out at places like Salvation Army, the Refuge House, and the Tandem Nursing Home, as well as mentoring to younger students at the Boys and Girls Club. Although BSU members are predominantly black, anyone and everyone is encouraged to join.

In 1989 the Florida State Chapter was founded in order to destroy the nega- tive images of African American males in the media. The Progres- sive Black Men focus on upholding morals, being sophisticated, and performing good deeds. They aim to be positive role models for African American males in the community and society as a whole. One of the men ' s main concentrations is to reach out and help the needy and disadvantaged children and to make their lives better. To be one of the most active organizations on cam- pus, these men volunteer at Mims and Riley Elementary Schools, the Florida State Minority Activity Program, and the Springfield Boys and Girls Club. The group also participates in Adopt-A-High- school, which allows the Progressive Black Men to mentor and educate future leaders. The Progressive Black Men of Florida State share a strong bond and brotherhood. Year after year they continue to help in the Tallahassee community.

The Marching Chiefs play at the Homecoming game versus Maryland performing a tribute to The Who at halftime. Awalrening 5ge Lena Mcaneney The Marching Chiefs is the largest collegiate marching band in the world with membership comprised from almost every academic department within the University. The marching band is approximately 400 students that perform at all home football games and select away games as well as the annual post-season bowl game. Recognized as the " band that never lost a halftime " by Sports Illustrated, the Chiefs have performed for audiences at the International Trade Fair in Damascus and for the World Football League in London. In addition, the Chiefs are a central feature of the annual Prism Concert, which features the complete spectrum of band activities at FSU. Within the Marching Chiefs is the Big 8 Drumline. This talent- ed and entertaining ensemble plays within the band, but some- times will play by themselves and have their audience dancing to their rhythmic beats. The Big 8 after home games and at Tallahas- see ' s Downtown Get Down in the streets. Baton twirlers and the flag team also are part of the half- time shows. Some batons are even thrown into the air, on fire, and caught while the twirler drops into a perfect split. As many times as they see it, students are mesmerized by the agility and precision of the flags and batons at FSU ' s spectacular halftime show. Students who wish to enroll audition by attending a pre- season training session held before classes begin. Though being a music major it isn ' t required to participate in the band, everyone is asked to play an audition for the purpose of placement.

The FSU goaltender Jason Goodwin came out strong earning him all tournament honors for his outstanding play against the Uni- versity of Florida in front of a crowd of 4000. The Seminole Ice Hockey Club was first established in the 1997-98 season and has been run by students, mostly the players that are on the team. Due to loss of ice in the Leon County Civic Center, the Seminoles have had to relo- cate their home games to the RDV Center in Orlando where they have been playing all their home games since. The team has been on full charge taking the season series against the Gators with scores of 5-2, 7-4 and 6-0. The Seminoles have a bright future ahead of them with Greg Kirchenbaum as the only senior on the roster.

Florida State University ' s AMA President, Erika Eichelberger states, " Here at FSU, we have a great deal to offer student members, ultimately mak- ing their ease into the professional world a confident one. " The AMA is the only orga- nization that provides direct benefits to marketing professionals in both business and education and serves all levels of marketing practitioners, educators and students. Involvement in AMA activities, committees and service as an officer will pro- vide practical marketing, advertising, management, promotion, and financial plan- ning experience— experience that increases your value in today ' s competitive job environment. The American Marketing Association at Florida State has demonstrated its involvement and how valuable its experience is to the marketing field by hosting many events and participating in various activities that veer toward the marketing spectrum. They have Guest Speakers once a month and during the spring semester they will have JCPenney, Kia, Hertz, University Directories, City Furniture, and one motiva- tional speaker. AMA also has their own " Meet the Recruiter Night " for its members and a Corporate Tour in the fall (this year they went to Atlanta, and visited Coca Cola, Yamaha, and CNN).

Brandace Simmons The Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Florida State University has one main vision- — students reach students and impact the world. The vision of Baptist Collegiate Ministries at FSU is to " create an environment for life " in which students, faculty, and staff come to know Jesus Christ, grow in a dynamic, personal relationship with Him, and become all He created and intended them to be in order to go " into all the world making disciples of all nations. " The Baptist Collegiate Ministry ' s purpose is not only to reach the lost, but to also teach the Truth of God ' s Word, as well as equip students, faculty and staff for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up. The BCM kicks their year off in August with Survival!. They also have an ongo- ing ministry to freshmen through " Fish Schools " . Other opportunities that allow pro- spective members to be involved are the Freshmen Campout, Freshmen Field Day, Progressive Dinner to six local churches in one night and so much more. The Baptist Collegiate Ministry is open to those looking for a Bible study, those looking for a way to use their spiritual gifts, individuals who want to go on a Spring Break mission trip or just those people who want to met new friends and hang out. Florida State ' s BCM has many different ways for you to get involved. Students on the BCM Leadership Team coordinate each of its ministries. Some of the ministries that the BCM has to offer are Encounter, Bible studies, Fish Schools Freshmen Minis- try, Campus Outreach, Greek B.A.S.I.C. (Brothers and Sisters In Christ) and commu- nity missions which help out the needy people in Tallahassee and the surrounding communiti ties.

This book is to be filled with the ideas, fashions, memories, pictures and traditions surrounding the 2005-2006 school year. With four deadlines spread out over the course of fall and spring semesters; a dedicated staff of five members and editors, an amazing advisor, and the guid- ance of Student Affairs made production a complicated mix of labor, learning and love. The hardest part of this adventure was ?finding the dedicated staff mem- bers who stuck it out for the entirety of the book. Finding out the people you can count on to get their assignments in by deadline, and those who let you down? Jes- sica Travis, Student Life and People Section Editor, expresses about her frustrations with the process. After a failed attempt to bring back the tradition of a yearbook last year (due to the lack of dedicated staff members), another push for the publication came. An abundance of volunteers and motivation came in 2005 where the yearbook was offered as a 3 credited hour course and provided hands on experience, volunteer hours and just a load of fun. " To be on the staff that created the first Florida State yearbook in ten years is an honor, because we are, hopefully setting it on course for many years to come. " Marietta Palgutt, Editor-in-Chief, To paraphrase Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club and a main contribu- tor to the recent jump in college-aged leisure reading, change is the only constant. A yearbook embraces and rejects this idea, as it commits all the tangibles (i.e. war chants, union bazaars, roaring construction equipment) and the intangibles (i.e. crushes, revelations, accomplishments) of an entire year to j pe Think about FSU from " 05-06, and smile.

This organization has allowed over 200 students to feel at home during a time that can be a difficult adjustment for any college student. The Catholic Student Union holds " Spirit Nights " every Wednesday at 8pm. This is time for students to come and learn more about their Catholic faith, as they go over a new topic each week that effects students on a daily basis. Also, CSU holds one retreat a semester, where 200 students take a weekend out of their busy schedule to focus on their relationship with God. In order to allow students to feel confortable within the organization, CSU has a ice cream social every week after the 6pm student mass as an opportunity for students to build friendships. After the ice cream social all students are invited to out to dinner with CSU, as an- other fun chance to meet to new people. CSU also sits together as in block seating at all FSU football games to ensure that new students are not left sitting by themselves at the game and as another opportunity for them to feel apart of the FSU community. CSU is also very involved in the community. CSU has a service committee who went to Mississippi this past semester to help the Hurricane Katrina victims. This spring break, the commit- tee will be going to New Orleans to help the Hurrican Katrina victims there as well. The Catholic Student Union also is very involved in the pro-life movement. Every year they send about 55 student to the March for Life in Washington, DC; and each fall semester have a pro-life speaker come on campus. However, CSU takes a lot of joy in being involved in the FSU community. They are ac- tive in the FSU intramurals for those students who are interested in sports. The Catholic Student has also become well know for their involvement in FSU ' s Homecoming competition. For the last three years, they have won first place overall in the Tomahawk division. Moreover they have won first in almost every EVENT that homecoming has put on for the last 3 years. Also, this past fall, CSU was awarded by the Black Student Union, " Most Outstanding Achievement " award for best non-BSU organization.

Jessica Burkhart Florida State University ' s PreLaw Society, a registered student organization, offers membership to students of all majors. The Society ' s goal is to " encourage stu- dents to successfully enter the legal profession. " Benefits of becoming a member are numerous and include insight into law school, help with the admissions process and information about the legal profession. Members of the PreLaw Society are able to participate in mock trials (participa- tion is based on auditions) and assist in law-related community outreach. One of the PreLaw Society ' s notable events is " Speaker Series. " This semester long series offers lectures from law professionals and the College of Law faculty. Members are also en- couraged to take advantage of the Society ' s " Professional Development Program " which aids students in job interviews, resume building and other areas related to the job search. Two additional programs offered by the Society include peer counseling and legal education. Peer Advising, a student run program, provides advice to students on the LSAT, the law school and the admissions process. All peer advisors have been highly trained through Florida State University ' s College of Law ' s Ambassador Training Program. The Legal Education Program is an outreach program that encourages el- ementary school students to understand and obey the law. Mock trials often occur through this program. Depending on a student ' s desire of involvement, a student can be a " gen- eral member " or an " inducted member. " General members are required only to pay dues each semester. Inducted members are involved on a committee, attend half of social functions and complete five philanthropy hours. Inducted members receive discounts on LSAT preparation courses along with other benefits. The Society ' s web- site states along with the above benefits, " The Florida State PreLaw Society aims to raise the caliber of students seeding admission to law school from Florida State University.

Diddy has said in the past, " vote or die. " Attracting voters for the election, Voice Party Superheroes Blake Partridge and Rob Baker gain the attention of students when campaigning in the Union on Market Wednesdays. Lindsay Potvin " Florida State students are being heard and understood in a new way now that they have found their voice in the Voice Party. " Imagine it is the first Tuesday in November, Election Day, and you walk eagerly to the polls to cast your vote and make your voice heard in your government. You gaze down at your ballot and realize that there is only one choice for every elected position. You realize that there is only one opinion repre- sented on the ballot, and it is not yours. Unfortunately, this is the scene that, up until the spring semester of the 2004-2005 academic year, was a reality for some students at Florida State. This scenario was the driving force behind the creation of the Voice Party. Their purpose was to give underrepresented students a voice in their governing body. With a small contingent of students, the Voice Party started slowly; however, they have won seats in the Student Senate since their first eligible election. Among them was Tim Hooper, who has run for elected positions and is now a Student Senator. His reason for involvement in the Voice Party mirrors the Party ' s reason for inception: " I ' m involved with Student Government because it presents an amazing opportunity to serve the university and the student body as well as to take a proactive stance on the direction FSU will go in the future. " With the students in mind, the founders of the Voice Party are taking politics to a new level of democracy by allowing the students to deci de together who should run for the elected positions. This allows the Voice Party to truly work together to gain a majority on campus so that the student ' s opinions are heard and put into action while taking away the inner party competition and allowing the goal to be to express the student ' s opinions. The Party now sits upon a secure and extremely active platform that shows their dedication to students. One such goal is to allow students to purchase tax free textbooks, and this goal is almost real- ized. A bill has been purposed to the Florida Legislature in the 2005 Legislative Session that abolishes the sales tax on textbooks. The Voice Party is also advocating the removal of the plus and minus system of grading at our University, as it has already been removed from other universities in Florida. This means that the grade point averages for our students are misrepresented through the deduction of points based on receiving a minus where as students at other Universities are not receiving any penalty for receiving the same grade. Safety for students is another goal; the Voice Party is advocating a more efficient S.A.F.E Connection program so that students may travel safely around campus and to surrounding areas safely at night As evident by the platform and structure of the Party at the heart of the Voice Party are the students. Their new and refreshing approach to politics places emphasis on the Party objective rather that the individual objectives within the Party. The Voice Party is truly uniting students who have not been able to find their voice in the University before, Collectively, these students are now being hea,rd through their new voice, the Voice Party.

Shannon Glynn " To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth it is yours for the taking, " says Agnes De Millie. Those who has the Phlava are right there with her. Dancing is not just about picking up difficult maneuvers, for as it is often said, " dancers are not made of their techniques, but of their passion. " It is an experience that leaves an everlasting impression. Consequentially, an extraordinary group of dancers know as Phlava has done just that. Founded by Millicent Johnnie and Traci Young in 1999, Phlava has been leaving those same impressions on all of those who watch in awe each time they perform. Since becoming Florida State ' s first hip-hop and jazz company, Phlava Dance Company has grown in both size and popularity. With well over twenty members and numerous perspectives, these individuals showcased that power at several events both on and off campus. Including a performance at this year ' s FSU MLK Day Celebration, the group drew crowds to socials, activities, several other universities, the FSU Pow Wow, and in Washington D.C. at the John F. Ken- nedy Center. They also perform and teach classes in Prague, Czech Republic. Under the direction of Nationia Harrison and Celia Tortelli, these dancers are taught not only to be great dancers but above all, be great people. With a mission to expand and enlighten societal views in all areas of dance they hope to promote diversity. They take the love that they all have for dance and as a team they combine integrity, attitude, grace, and devotion to create a flavor that is rich and unique.

Creating is something I am good at FSU needs to start giving my family a deal on tuition. My whole family so far has come through these gates, my dad, mom. sister, brother and now me. with three more on their way. So from the start this was where I was going to end up. so the only application I sent out. For some odd reason yearbook has always been a passion of mine, as Allison would say. " we are yearbook nerds. " I enjoy the designing, the compiling, the deadlines. I love to create a piece of work that evokes specific emotions and memories for those who look back on it. As much as I complained about the massive deadlines and all the hard work and all the drama, it ' s what kept me going some days. I spent some long days and nights in that yearbook office trying to make a dent in the work that needed to be done. Dedication is a funny thing. The first attempt of bringing the book back Fall 2004 fell through to find out that not many people on staff were com- pleting their responsibilities due to the lack of dedicated staff members. I went from a design staff position on the first attempt to the editor-in-chief for the second try because I felt like I had a drive and determination and had to see the project through till the end. And here we are. The year was filled with making new contacts and pulling as many strings as we could to get this publication off the ground. But one thing was for sure. I wouldn ' t let it fall through the cracks again. This is the first book published in ten years, and if it ' s the only one published for ten more, that ' s enough for me. Without money for advertising or workshops, with few dedicated staff members left, and running out of ideas, there were moments working on this project that I felt as if I was the only one left. What the hell was I wasting my time for? Then my few responsible editors would walk in with their pages done and asking about what else they could do. As corny as this sounds: this book would be nothing without you guys. Thank you so much for all your hard work, your dedication, your charisma, and your contribution to the book. About two weeks into the 2005 Fall semester I knew something had to change in my life. I tagged along to Wal-Mart and bought five different color highlighters and from that point on, my life was color coded. Between 40 hours a week in the yearbook office, trying to be there for my residents as an RA, making sure my grades were always up to par, and finding time for myself and keep my friendships intact, I ' m amazed it only took five colors. To all my best-est friends in Tally-Ho, Erica my favorite and best you are my rock and my sanity, Nicole Nicole for the understanding and making me laugh, Kristin for the many nights of bitching and bitching, I seriously would have gone out of my mind without you, Jessy, Amy, Kim, Sara, Meghan, and all those not mentioned that could fill up all of these 336 pages with my gratitude. Thank you. For the many hours just letting me talk and cry and telling me it would come together thanks Donovan my love for always being there for me. " It ' s not done yet? " No mom, not yet. But now it is, Thanks to my family for their unending support in this stressing matter. Looking back there are many things about this publication and how it came to be that I would change, but I could never ask for better support that came in the making. Tim Quinnan in Student Affairs, those bi-weekly meetings kept me on the ball and felt like I was actually doing something right and holding it together. Our stupendous Taylor rep, Marvin Mayer, this year was a tough and busy one no doubt, but you were always there to make sure things were running smoothly and we got what we needed to see it through. Thank you. I am proud to say that it is finally done. And I hope years from now Seminoles who have long graduated can look back and feel the same feelings and remember the same good memories through this book.

Bringing back this book after its long hiatus was a goal that all of the staff was dedicated to. We all wanted to create a book that would represent not only this year at Florida State but would also in- corporate the rich history of Florida State Uni- versity. Being a part of yearbook allows you to see so many aspects of Florida State that you never knew existed. This book started out as computer images, old newspaper stats and stacks of pictures. It has become a collection of memories, These pictures and words will never fade, or get deleted off of our computers; this book will forever serve as a reminder of our freshman, sophomore, ju- nior or senior year. I hope that this book will be well received by the school as well as the community and will serve as the benchmark of a new tradition at FSU. wtikgUar pc m (xi Being from Miami people expect me to be a UM fan but. truth of the matter is, I have been a Seminole from the time I started think- ing about college. After playing college Softball and attending two universities. I realized there was something missing. So I quit play- ing softball. transferred once more, and attend Florida State. After being a wonderer and " college whore " I found what was missing about my college experience and it was all here at FSU. The Doak, tailgating at Indian Village, keggers, Yianni ' s. late nights at the Park Ave. Diner, Guthries at 3 a.m.. Pokey Sticks, homecoming week, intramurals and YEARBOOK were the missing puzzle pieces in my college life.

FSU was my first home away from home, and can ' t think of a better place to start my college experience. I attended my first football game, saw my first stand-up comedian, and ate my first Pokey Stix. I made friends who will never forget. Some of my favor- ite memories include Wednesday Night Dinners, journeys to Pitaria, crashing concerts, Phil Collins kara- oke, playing Balderdash, and not writing a paper to stay up all night talking and drinking tea. A part of me will always be a ' Nole!

WOW- what a task I had to start from scratch and try to get all greek orga- nizations (there are more than you think) in this book in only a couple of months 1 It was a big challenge which required me to be quite persistent, but I thank everyone who got their informa- tion into me!

Cummings - Florida State Uniuet-AiW - y-Q Y pr ankful for the opportunity to be part of the bringing back of the FSU Yearbook. I am grateful to be Co-edi- tor of the Photography section. I have been able to be on the sidelines of FSU memories and capture them for ev- eryone to remember. I had an amaz- ing Co-Editor, Cody Lewis, who was a great help and stuck with it even when we were swamped. I Look forward to seeing the Renegade succeed and be- coming a FSU tradition. Thank you to the FSU Renegade staff! And a HUGE THANK YOU TO Etta our wonderful Editor who put up with more than she should have. Thank you so Working on the Renegade has been the highlight of my first year at Florida State University. It has allowed me to interact with parts of this campus that I would never have known existed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff of the Ren- egade for giving me the chance to attend athletic and special events. The highlights of which were the ACC Championship foot- ball game in Jacksonville and the Duke bas- ketball game. I would also like to thank the entire staff at Sports Information for work- ing seamlessly with our photography staff in our attempts to attain press passes. I have thoroughly enjoyed the events that I have been able to attend and look forward to an even more exciting experience next year. Lastly, I would like to thank Brianna Douthitt for involving me with the Renegade by con- vincing me to apply for a staff position. Henry Deane, Florida State junior, served as lead copy editor on the em Renegade em ' s end cut. looks forward to a raduation in Fall 2007. Specialties include copywriting (writ- ten journalism), layout, production, research, public relations, editing and improving. He thrives on a overview approach ideology, closing, synthesizing detail and running with ideas. A yearbook is a funny thing. I ' ve done a couple of these now, and I ' m starting to make sense of many things that weren ' t as apparent when I was younger. I ' ve edited them, written for them, taken pictures for and of them. I ' ve sold them. But the powerful thing, the golden halo encircling the entire pro- cess for me is what the newsroom experience and the beat experience have done to change my approach. I ' m a backwoods Floridd boy with more hair on my chest than my head. By nature, my energy is atomic and most defi- nitely, I ' m a perfectionist. Taking down people ' s memories by picture ond word has been a canal through which to apply my energy: to give the page life. There is something alive in these books that, like well-blended, long-lived scotch, goins purity and beduty with age. Knowing that I ' ve been a hand in this process gives me hope, not only for my own career, but for the life and health of an institution that I love.
