We hope that the lessons you learn at Florida State University- not just academic, but social, athletic and civic—will remain with you not just while you ' re a student, but throughout the years. As a student, you have become a member of a community that has endured for over 155 years and will remain strong for gener- ations to come. You have become a part of a great heritage, and this will be your community long after you have left the class- rooms behind. At the very heart of that heritage is fhe unconquered Seminole spirit-a unique aspect of fhe Florida State University commu- nity, based on the historic unconquered spirit of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, a courageous, tenacious and determined people who never gave up and never gave in the face of overwhelming odds. Their strength and bravery stand as a shining example for all FSU students, past, present and future. We are proud of your accomplishments and hope that you will always consider Florida State University your home. We hope, too, that your Seminole pride will remain strong and that yo u remain a part of our efforts to maintain this institution ' s very special heritage and unconquered spirit. .• ' -7%.

Seminole Sensation Week hasf been a tradition for three years now, with the amount of attendeesl increasing every year. All the activities are free for students andj range from Breakfast for a Buck to concerts like Jimmy Eat World.| Also, there are opportunities for students to learn different types of talents and skills, such as salsa dancing. Some of the other events offered included dinner and a movie on! Union Green, Inflatable carnivals, and a Lego Block Party. Also,! Seminole Sensation Week gave students an opportunity to learnj more about Florida State, its campus, and fellow students. It evenj presented the opportunity for students to meet up with advisors.j One of the main highlights was a " Day at the Rez " where stu- dents went to the Rez for a day and enjoyed some sand, sun,| and sports by the lake. Also, every year a comedian or performer has been brought in to do a show just for Florida State students.| Last year, it was Jimmy Eat World. This year, it was comedian K1 Tatara and country singer Chris Cagle. Some of the other events offered included: Karaoke at the Club Down Under, Hip Hop Clut Break-dancing, Spades Tournaments, Blacklight Sidewalk Chalk,| Cosmic Bowling and Billiards, and a Water Balloon Challenge,! among others. The week ended with the Seminole Uprising, which was basi- cally a pep rally. It got all the students together and went over the traditional chants and cheers, brought out the sports teams and coaches, and created a general excitement for the year to come. Seminole Sensation Week ' s biggest event is the concert held on Friday. The concert is held on the Union Green, and it is free to students and locals. The 2006 guest was none other than country star Chris Cagle. Past per- formers have included Jimmy Eat World, Underoath, Hoobastank, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. f.m Many students take advantage of the free food offered during Seminole Sensation Week. Dur- ing the seven days of festivities, many oppor- tiuiities are available for the newly poor college students. Breakfast for a Buck, the Multicultural Affairs Barbecue, and Dinner and a Movie are all very promising occasions to score free food. " K These two young men are participating in the Ultimate Lego Building Contest. Many quirkj ' activities take place dur- ing this week of fun. In addition to Lego con- struction, students can participate in cosmic bowling, billiards, mid- night movies, inflatable carnivals and more. There is an activit ' to suit each student. Many aspiring salsa dancers join togetlier each year in Club Dow- nunder to express their inner dancer. The Corazon dancers host a les- son in Florida State ' s very own nightclub. They take aspiring dancers |through the steps in an attempt to bring out their inner booty-shak- F ' ers. Club Downunder also plays host to other events such as concerts and karaoke. It is a place where students can join together in search of a common passion. Resident Assistants are responsible for getting in- formation out to their residents about campus ac- tivities. The residence halls ' walls are lined with multiple flyers and posters and informational sheets about multicultural events, organization meetings, helpful information for living on cam- pus, and other ver ' valuable resources. Due to their intensive training and access to so many resources, residence halls and their assistants are veiy valu- able sources of information on campus. Residence hail life has a major focus on meeting new people and experi- encing new activities. Students are encouraged to lounge around the hall and introduce themselves to the other residents. Every hall also has so- cials put on by the Resident . ' ssistants to get students out of their rooms, take a break fi ' om studying and interact and get to know other students in the liall. On campus living makes a great effort to contribute to a social, iteractivc atmosphere for students. campus living is ery conducive to the academic and atmosphere; al ' - ost every floor of each residence hall is home to a study room and or ounge. Students can take advantage of this quiet space for their own studying, or they can use it for group projects. Eveiy residence hall takes pride in the success and social well-being of their students. Cawthon Hall which has a Living Learning Community for Education nd Music majors, offers special practice rooms for the performers that r ' c within its walls. Many of the residence halls on campus offer spe- cial communities for specific majors, such as the music living-learning comnnmity in Cawthon. These programs also provide specialized classes intent for these maj ors, providing yet another way for students to meet „others within their field. Campus life offers many opportunities to communicate % ath fellow Florida ate University students. Ever ' resi- nce hall is equipped with high speed Ethernet hook-ups for ever} ' resident, ireless internet is also available in mmunal spaces, and cell phone calls Etc frequent within the hallways, defi- ;itely sometliiiig to be excited about.

Balado al explain that dorm life isn ' t always easy and is " hard to get usft to " . Of course, once students decide that ifs time to gewheir own| places, off-campus living is a crowd favorite. With many type of apartment complexes to choose from in the bustling Tallahas see area, Florida State students have a good chang of finding! a perfect match.

With brick facades and high, pointed roofs, these residence halls have many students agreeing that this style -. of architecture definitely adds to the overall historical fei I ing of campus. This sense of history and tradition is one that Florida State treasures, and it definitely contributes to a home-like atmosphere.

After im a Star for a de- g seems success erves the Going on a cruise is a popular spring break aeti for university students. These grand ships offer ev- eiy hixury to its passengers «th the added benefit of getting as far away ft ' om home as possible. Many travel agencies provide students with discount rates, making a cruise an affordable, exotic spring break pastime. CO arah Gwin Spring break is the time for students to take a break from the stres ses of schooi. During the week, Florida State students kici back and relax in different ways. The beach is something tha Tallahassee lacks. Therefore, many students flock to the sunl and sand as soon as they finish their last classes of the week. Most head to southern Florida to catch the hot rays, and oth- ers even go out of the country to spend their week at a foreign beach. Another popular spring break activity is to go on a cruise. These cruise ships can take travelers to different countries such] as the Bahamas or Mexico. The food is always amazing, and thej experience is unforgettable. Some students may get tired of the hot Florida weather and head north for their spring break destinations. Snow skiing is definitely a big change from the general Tallahassee activities. Bundling up during spring break may seem strange, but the experience of seeing snow is nonexistent in Flo rida. Many students choose to spend their spring break at home so that they can be with their families and high school friends. During the spring semester, many students are too busy to even go home Therefore, spring break provides a convenient opportunity to reunite, with loved ones and old friends. Road trips are also a popular thing to do dunng this vacation period. Seeing different parts of the United States is educational as well as fun. While some students may enjoy the quality road time, others students may still choose to fly to their destinations No matter what students decide to do over their spring break, one thing is for certain; everyone has some much eded fun before the homestretch to the end of the schooi year, ' When students escape from school for that precious spring break week, many just want to waste the days away on a beach or at a pool. Swimming is an activ- ity that many partake in during the break. Suddenly, beaches and pools become a showcase of students ' hard, vigorous workouts. If the bead often turn to amusement par! pro dde students with many thi| as roller coaster rides, night clubs, cal presentations. Bush Gardens and! are just two of the many places that many stu- iients visit during break. pring break is the opportunity to do something out of the ordinary. These people desire something out- side of the traditional cruises or beach life. Some even choose to spend their breaks in educational endeavors. For, example, learning about animals is a fun and interesting thing to do and keeps one ' s in active. trec loubt, the beach is the most spring break destination for universit} ' students. The sand and sun provide a great, carefree atmo- sphere for students that spent the semestei ' locked away in the library. Students return to school with a tan and a sunny disposition after days of bliss on the beach shore. !, ' •. • 0- ceoia Mild Renegade are a traditional fan ia .)rite.

Pairings of organizations had to construct a float for the Homecoming " Best Float " competition. The more creative the float, the better chance of winning a pairing has. by Lily McCall One of the highlights of Homecoming is the parade held every year on the Friday of Homecoming Week. Classes are cancelled after 1 p.m. so that students and faculty can line the sidewalks to watch all the cars and floats drive by. Many Seminole favorites marched in the parade this year, includ- ing Chief Osceola and FSUs first cheedeader Maggie Allesee Others included the Golden Girls, Seminole Dance Force, th FSU Cheerleaders, and of course the Marching Chiefs! Player; from both the 1993 and 1999 National Champion football team were also in the parade, in recognition of the fact that Florid State truly is the " University of Champions. " ■ Members of the Homecoming Court got to ride in st as they were chauffeured in classy convertibles. Student organizations competing in Homecoming Week each entered a float in the parade to compete against the other pairings in thefr division. These groups put a great amount of effort into building their float. The process takes weeks, with thousands of sheets of tis- sue paper pomp being folded to decorate the float and give it that signature parade look. Each float takes a lot of hard work, and almost everyone will admit they pulled an all-nighter before the parade to get everything ready to go by Friday morning. So much goes into these floats, but once students get to se them driving through the streets of Tallahassee it all pays off. The Homecoming Parade is one of the best ways to experience the enthusiasm of students and alumni. The event is among the most pop- ular events of the season. Classes are cancelled after i p.m. so that students and faculty can line the sidewalks to see all the cars and floats drive bv. orida State stu- dents involved in The S ' udent Government Association and the Stu- dent Alumni Association make up the Homecom- ing Executive Board. They work for months preparing for all of the week ' s events. During the parade, they can finally relax and wave to the spectators, all of their hard work having paid off. — , — ■% --- W ;:,-if;s; l : " ■■•■ ' s Building floats takes a lot of creativity and pomp (a method of folding tissue paper in the form of flower-like shapes). Students spent many evenings pomping and sticking their folded creations to their floats, eventually achieved the shapes and structures of their ision. The theme for this year was " The University of Champions " allowing all participants to take their own spin on the theme. Competing for the Chief and Princess title is al old Seminole Tradition.

Many students on campus use alternative transportation to arrive to class on time, especially when hiking from VVestcott to Stone (one end of campus to the other). Students can be seen on campus wath skateboards, bicycles, razor scooters, skates, and even golf caits to accom- modate their needs to get to class promptly. by Leandra Pounc rhroughout the day, the campii ' s of Florida State University is abuzz with the hustle and bustle of students and faculty coming and going, trying to get to their next destinations. Since parking is a major hassle on campus, some students opt to riding bikes,, or scooters. Others choose to walk. But the Seminole Express i probably the most popular mode of transportation around cam pus. Experienced bus riders know that the buses get crowded fast and it is often like a game of roulette trying to get on the first bus that arrives to a particular stop. However, the buses are a the pride and joy of FSU campus transportation WM Hr Luckily for students, the Seminole Express busing system un denrt ent changes for the Fall 2006 semester The inclusion o smaller buses bearing the school ' s colors and mascot, has beeni a dream come true for students who depend heavily on the bus to get them from here to there. These new buses don ' t hold as many people as the bigger buses students are used to, which are still in circulation. All buses continue to run their designated Garnet, Gold, Tomahawk, Renegade, Heritage Grove, or Col lege of Engineering routes between 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., circu lating every 10 or 15 minutes. Students also got a bonus when the Night Note began its run in the Fall 2006 semester. The Night Note provides students safe ride home between the hours of 10 p.m. - 3 a.m., Tuesday - Saturday. This system runs, with three buses circulating 15 minutes apart. It will pick students up from the Tennessee Strip and other late-night hotspots and is convenient to may of the apartment complexes that house FSU students. The Night Nok IS a free service sponsored by the FSU Student Governmen Association. In addition to the Night Nole, from dusk until 3 a.m. the S.A.F.E. Connection bus is another option for st ents whc need a safe ride home. M With the current busing systems operating throughout cam- pus, Florida State University looks out for its students between school hours as well as after. The high demand fo ese ser- vices proves the success of FSU campus transport ln. ' £ Take a ride on the Seminole Express, Florida States latest addition to campus transportation. The new edition of our campus transport includes live new buses that are decorated in garnet and gold both inside and out.

Students can enjoy the shade of a pic- nic shelter that includes a grill and picnic tables. These shelters are also available for reser ' ation and rental by various groups. Some activities at the Rez require equipment, equip- ment which would be too tedious to transport from home. Therefore, the Reservation offers several types of equipment for rental. For example, sailboat rent- als are quite popular. All equipment is offered at very reasonable prices. Students must go through a sailing clinic to be able to glide across the water. There is also a boat ramp for boaters to use. by Sarah Baczewskii The Florida State Reservation, a 73-acre facility situated oPi the edge of Lake Bradford, is just a short, five-minute drivej south of campus. At the Rez (its nickname), students can re lax in a natural setting and enjoy activities both on the lake and lakeside. Waterfront endeavors include sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. Students who wish to stay dry can choose to picnic, play a game of sand volleyball, enjoy a game in the recreation hall, try out the ropes course, or climb the rock wall. " I like to stop by after my classes most Fridays. It ' s something different to do with fnends other than going to the mall or something like that, " commented freshman Kyla Reh- berg about canoeing at the Rez. The FSU Reservation offers opportunities for groups as well. Recently the FSU Reservation has partnered with the LEAD program (Leaders Educated To Make A Difference) to offer a new twist on leadership seminars. The " LEAD-ln " program in- tends to provide students with education, training, and devel- opment of leadership skills through a weekend, retreat-styl seminar. Many groups travel to the Rez to take on the " FSU Challenge " . Through the support and encouragement of their group members, course organizations strengthen their dynam ics and cohesiveness while participating in this program on this challenging ropes course. " The FSU Challenge " includes ex ercises that require collaboration to solve and can be tailored: to meet the specific needs of any group. " We tried the ropesj course while here for the weekend. It was an interesting way to| learn more about everyone. Our group seemed to really com together, " said junior Brent Butrym after attending a leadershi conference at the Reservation.

Whether looking for a great place to relax in the aff noons or searching for a standout place for a group outing, students, faculty, and organizations always seem to enjoy their trips to the Florida State University Reservation. Lake Bradford has a designated swimming area where students can cool off after a hot day. Tallahassee ' s summer months provide particularly warm days, during which this swimming area is a popular oasis. Visitors may also canoe or kayak on one of the three ad- joining lakes. This may be a wonderful alterna- tive to the traditional g ym, durin g Tallahas see ' s warmer months. ties. A game Frisbec is a popular, land activity at the Reservation.

J The SLB plays host to many videogame tournaments, causing laughter and yelling to echo off the wails of the large living room- tike area that serves as the building ' s hub. In addition to vid- eogames, this living room-type area contains numerous, com- fortable couches that provide a coveted study area and " chill space. " When a student walks into the SLB, the happy living area immediately greets him or her. The area contains thirteen Windows PCs and two iMacs. Each of these comes equipped with FSU ' s high-speed Ethernet and, of course, is free of charge Students may choose from a literal library of games to waste the hours between classes, .m When a student enters the building and looks to the left, he or she will see the entrance to the infamous Student Life Cinema. This IS one of the most loved components of the Student Life Building and one of the programs that makes FSU so unique. The Student Life Cinema is a student-run movie theatre provid- ed free of cost to FSU students ($4 for non-students). It receives its funding from the Student Government Association. Students form a committee each year that decides what movies will be shown. The SLC runs movies up to six days a week, ranging in type from student films, artistic films, documentaries, to even the biggest blockbusters. . On occasion, the SLC will even hold advance screenings, which inspire lines that wrap around the SLB ' s hallways. The organiza- tion also actively participates in on-campus activities such as Seminole Sensation Week. The Student Life Building is not only home to this organization and to videogame tournaments, it ' s just purely a home, a place to go for a soft place to land. j. mi The Student Life Building is also home to a wireless internet cafe.

Some would say that perhaps your friends is a better option, hence the second oba year; if students were not on their iPods, they were ui on their cell phones, with the Sid ekick and the Mot dominating the cell phone scene this year.

Of course, when students get me, the first thing that they do is turn on their computers and check Veir Facebook and MySpace accounts. Some students even have their Facebook accounts wared to their cell phones so that when they receive a wall post, it pops up as a text message on their phones. These sites seem to distract students from studying and other chores because of its addict- ing nature. However, they are not all bad; Facebook and MySpace are great tools for networking with people in college, and they help students keep in touch with distant fnends. Starbucks stands are swarmed in the morning peak hours of 8:30 a.m.- 11: 00 a.m.. Starbucks Coffee stands are located all around campus with locations at the FSU bookstore and in the Stro ier Library. Ha ing these coffee shops positioned in studying areas, it makes it easier for students to get their caffeine additive before rigorous studying. Trendy ' era Bradley bags have been a big hit with in the sorority com- munities as well as in FSU ' s general, female population. The quilted cot- ton bag boasts a southern comfort, homemade look. Each girl picks a pattern to call her own, and then can spend years purchasing the numer- ous items within that pattern, including wallets, purses, backpacks, and much more. This is a trendy style that can be seen all over campus and is becoming a nmst-have for the female student body. Cell phones are such a hot commodity- that signs are posted in front of ticket windows and food court saying, " Please finish all phone conversations before ' 0U approach the window. " Students take advantage of cell phones by using them for internet access, as primary phones, as a primar ' method to tell time, and as a camera or video camera.

Davis, begins an illicit love affair with Trent (right), played by Johnny Vieira. 1 From, October 29th to October 29th, the School of Theatre per-H formed Six Degrees of Separation. In this particular snapshof (above), the main character Paul manipulates Trent, a young member of high society, with the promise of sexual favors in order to obtain valuable information about wealthy commu- nity members, information which Paul later uses to dupe the wealthy. m The plot becomes a tangled web of lies, deception, and sex tha ends in suicide, jail, and eye-opening lessons. The cast mem bers for Six Degrees of Separation gave a strong performance depicting issues and events that melted hearts, inspired tears and put a spotlight on pertinent social issues. ' . .

Only 14 years old, the transition was not easy — her father and siblings remained in Venezuela; the food was unfamiliar, as were the long school hours. Yet, they persevered and are now glad they did. Gabriella explains, " I love my country and plan to visit often, but the U.S. has become my home. " Everyone in Gabriella ' s childhood home spoke English. She then learned Spanish in school, practic- ing the language with her extended family. But after a year in the U.S., she became interested in learn- ing more. Perhaps the transition had awakened a latent desire — she discovered she " loved different cultures, traveling, and languages. " She began to study French, which, like Spanish, is a romance language. As an exchange student in France, she quickly picked it up. " I realized I have the ability to learn languages easily. " She ' s now begun studying a fourth — Mandarin Chinese — which she hopes to master by the time she obtains her doctorate. To feed her interest is other cultures, Gabriella joined the ' Noles Leadership Book Club, an organiza- tion run by the Lead Center, While reading books on the subject of leadership, she can interact with students of different backgrounds and with faculty and staff " who have a daily impact on the FSU com- munity. " To introduce her own culture to others, Gabriella serves as the press and advertisement chair of the Hispanic Latino Student Union. if you love cultures, a major in International Affairs is for you. For Gabriella, " international politics is simply one step further. " The cultural issues of women, similar in many ways worldwide, " amazed " her, so much so that she chose Women ' s Studies as a second major. " Learning that women ' s status around the world, including in the U.S., is much lower than men ' s has made me deeply passionate about achieving equality for women. I proudly consider myself a feminist. " Yet, to achieve equality, she says, " We must start with policy making. " To prepare, Gabnella plans to attain a doctorate in Women ' s Studies and teach at the university level. Later, she will enter politics, lobbying for women ' s issues. For a young woman who has learned not only to survive but to flourish through the changes that life brings, such accomplishments are definitely doable.

Being abie to watch high school students develop into college students was enlightening. You see each student struggle to find her niche and then struggle to balance fun and academics. The best thing an RA can do is to listen. Residents ' concerns were kept between the resident and me. because trust is important, " says Colette Miller. " My first year, in Jennie Murphree Hall, I had a lot of upperclassmen and residents with disabilities. I found it hard to do the best that I wanted. For my second year I was the RA in Kellum, where the Genesis Program is located. These were pretty amazing girls, who had prior leadership experience and were on a fast track for success, it was an honor to be a part of it. " My freshman year I got involved with Residence Hall Government and was elected historian. This led me to being inducted into the National Residence Hail Honorary. Last year, I was the Honorary ' s presi- dent, represent ing our chapter in state, regional, and national boardrooms, pretty much all over the countny. it was great to share information on what works and what doesn ' t on everyone ' s campus. ' Tve been a peer leader for two semesters for the First Year Experience Program as wet! as an Orien- tation leader. Participating in the Florida LeaderShape institute really opened the door for me. I real- ized how much there is on campus, and that leadership is an ever-evolving process. " It became hard for me to balance everything while working toward a science degree, so i didn ' t return for a third year as an RA. This past fall I was on the Dean ' s List and this summer I am doing a Directed Individual Study (DIS) on Nutritional Neuroscience in Dr. Cathy Levenson ' s lab. I realty love my Exer- cise Science courses, which focus on the body and how it works. You learn something— why vitamins are important and all the great benefits from exercise— and then see how it works with your own body. You ' re inspired to stay healthy. " My life long dream has been to become a physician. Most definitely, being an RA will help me. You need to know what you can and can ' t handle, and how to say ' no. ' The biggest lesson I have learned is the importance of taking care of yourself. You spend so much time taking care of other people that you often forget about you, which I am sure is the same for medical professionals.

" Creating music, and attending Florida State, is a " family legacy. " Julia ' s grandfather received his doctorate in Music and her father received his bachelor ' s in Violin Performance. She can remember her mother playing the cello as far back as memory will take her. Music is in her genes, " it ' s one of the most fulfilling things I can imagine, " she says. " The more i dedicate myself to it, the more it gives in return. " Julia has dedicated herself to both her studies and to her performance. Academi- cally, she has maintained a 4.0 Coiiege of Music GPA, appeared on the President ' s List nearly every semester of attendance, and has been inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society The Coiiege of Music recently recognized her with its Brautlecht Scholarship, which is given to seniors who have excelled academically and who show outstanding promise for success in the Music profession. She says, " It is quite an honor to be called a promising musician; it will motivate me to keep improving. " The idea that she will never completely master her music, that she will always be learning, pleases Julia. She believes she owes this pursuit of excellence to her listeners — " When I am playing, I feel I am connecting with the audience, " And she is connecting to the creator of the music — " an actual person who was going through any range of emotion, from depression to euphoria. The composer puts himself on the page, and I have the opportunity to get inside him, decipher what he was going through, and then present it to my audience. That is thrilling, " In the summer of 2005, Julia chose to study in Valencia, Spain, through Florida State ' s International Programs. " Be- cause i can speak Spanish better than any other foreign language. " She had an opportunity to explore " somewhere different than the U.S. " and in the process discovered " people who value different things than we do " Now that she has been bitten, she wants to continue traveling. " I find myself alone, practicing, a lot of the time, completely absorbed in the culture of Music. This is necessary to be successful, but I fear if 1 don ' t do something else, I will stop improving. Great technique can only take you so far; sometimes you must do something completely separate to help you understand yourself better. Then, you can put more of your taie self into the music, and can make a better connection to the world.

" When I go to the gym, it ' s hard to come back out. If it ' s closed, ! take a run around campus. " Majoring in Exercise Sciences is a natural fit, then, for Joshua who says, " Health has always been an interest, but it wasn ' t until I joined the Army Reserve that I put it into practice. " He has completed a 1 0-miie race and two triathlons, but he advises newcomers never to " jump into that type of physical exertion without starting slowly and working your way up. You don ' t have to fun a 5K to get healthy. " This semester, as a Freshman Interest Group Leader, Joshua is taking his passion one step further by leading a colloquium in Exercise Sciences for incoming freshmen. He plans on a future as a Physician ' s Assistant. " I have always wanted to work in the medical field, a career that allows me to treat patients on a more personal level. " As a member of the Army Reserve, he travels once a month to Gainesville ' s Veteran ' s Affairs Hospital. He finds working as a Health Care Specialist for veterans, " who are owed so much, " very rewarding. Having witnessed the positive effect on patients when health care providers take the time to reassure them and answer their questions, he knows, " Patients who feel more comfortable about their treatment generally recover faster. " Because he has shown a commitment to personal wellness, Joshua has been honored with the Col- lege of Human Sciences Life Puzzle Scholarship. And last year, after being inducted into the Golden Key International Honour Society, he won that organization ' s Outstanding Junior Scholarship. But it is his work with the Golden Key that Joshua feels great pride, having " worked very hard with the executive board to make our chapter great. " When he became president, which " has its perks, " he was prepared to make this a banner year for the organization. Already they have inducted over 400 new members. He says, " It is one of the most valuable leadership experiences. I ' m able to help the community with service projects, help others get scholarships (doubling the number), and hold many events to help our members and the student body prepare for graduate school and life after college.

During her six-month stint in Thailand, Natasha hopes to contribute to reshaping and --ebuilding the recently flooded nation. " It ' s a wonderful opportunity for a cross-cultural experience that will hopefully have an impact on both my life as well as my students ' lives. " Besides her teaching duties, she wants to start " an outreach program, like a peer group, to help out with any need that might still exist from the tsunami disaster. " Natasha learned to appreciate other cultures after joining Brooks ' Bunch, a program developed by former FSU football player Derrick Brooks that organizes educational " field trips " for students who perform well in school. She was able at a young age to travel to Africa. She says of the experience, " Through Derrick ' s program, I was able to touch and see things that I believed were in the future of another person ' s life. ! became more open-minded and appreciative of other cultures, which is why I wanted this fellowship. " As an undergraduate, she was an Honors student who majored in Exercise Science. Last April, she was chosen to present the research for her Thesis, " Moderate Exercise and the Immune Response in Varying Environments, " at the Atlantic Coast Conference research symposium at Clemson University. Her research examined inflammatory responses in the body as a result of rigorous activity, which can often lead to muscle soreness. She explains, " Through testing at room temperature and then manipu- lating the temperature in a climatic chamber, I was able to see how environmental temperatures affect that response, whether it enhances or suppresses it. " Natasha hopes her research will help people better understand the different processes and effects that training and temperature levels will have on their bodies. She will continue her studies of the human body when she returns from Thailand and begins " attending one of the United States ' finest medical schools.

And, currently, there is no way to measure the serotonin levels in your brain. So, if an advertisement claims to alleviate your depression by correcting a serotonin imbalance in your brain, be wary. Become informed, says Jeffrey Lacasse, Visiting Lecturer and doctoral candidate in Social Work. " Physi- cians and mental health professionals should be disclosing to their clients what we do and do not know, and the risks and benefits of each treatment in detail. " Throughout his education, Jeffrey has been interested in critical thinking. He earned his Masters of Social Work through Florida State ' s off-campus program, while working at a psychiatric hospital and as a psychoeducationai fa- cilitator in a prevention program. That ' s when he became " intensely interested in mental health research and found interesting critical thinkers were from the field of academic Social Work. " So, he came to Florida State to pursue his Ph.D. He says, " It has been a very fulfilling experience. " Jeffrey was one of the first recipients of the Graduate Student Research and Creativity Award. He co-authored, " Serotonin and Depression: A Disconnect Between the Advertisements and the Scientific Literature, " arguing that " antidepressant advertisements could be seen as misleading, since the idea that they correct a serotonin imbal- ance is theoretical and actually contradicted by a large body of research. " Public Library of Science, an open-ac- cess journal, published the paper. Since its appearance, Jeffrey says, " We have not received a single negative commentary from any mental health academic, and have received an overwhelming amount of media coverage and positive feedback from the public. " The issue of informed consent concerns Jeffrey. " Unfortunately, it seems likely that the information that many clients receive from their clinicians is more consistent with dnjg company advertising than the empirical evidence. There are complex reasons for this, and I would like to continue to do further research in this area. " Winner of several teaching awards — Association of Students in Social Work ' s Instructor of the Year, and Florida State ' s Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award Granted to an Independent Instructor — Jeffrey " enjoys challenging students to think critically, whether the topic is Social Policy or Statistics. " Upon completion of his doctorate, he ' ll continue to teach and research mental health, a definite benefit for those in the mental health field and those served by it.

He says, " It was an absolutely incredible experience I won ' t soon forget. " As co-founder and president of the FSU chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals, a national IT organization, Willie, along with Matthew Lundy and Dr. Anthony Chow, co-hosted the recent inaugural event where Dean Larry Dennis and local business leaders delivered keynote addresses. The organization was created to bring students majoring in IT together, helping them to develop professionally. One of the nation ' s top minority internship organizations— INROADS — provides professional development op- portunities for students at Fortune 500 companies, with full-time employment at graduation. For the past two sum- mers, Willie has interned with Convergys Corporation in Jacksonville, working on three separate projects — Human Resources Direct, Employee Care IT, and Global Diversity " i have been fortunate enough to see several sides of the business and to experience first-hand the organization ' s culture. " Willie has also served as the student representative for STARS Alliance: A Southeastern Partnership for Diverse Participation in Computing, an 11 -university consortium that recently received a $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation. This past summer, he helped facilitate a weeklong conference, where various mentoring, retention, and outreach strategies were addressed to combat the sharp decline of students enrolling in IT and Computer Science programs. He ' s begun to leverage the power of technology — by assisting those in need. As part of his IT practicum course, he and his classmates assembled 35 desktop computers for the Governor ' s Reading Literacy Program, delivering them to a South Florida organization in dire need. He has provided IT sup- port for the past year to more than a dozen facilities of the Boys and Giris Club of the Big Bend. And last spring he served as the project manager of an IT support project for the Tallahassee Museum. His team perfonned mainte- nance and troubleshooting services for all computers on the Museum ' s network.

Linda has an interest in these small crustaceans (0.2 to 2.5 mm in length) that live in the sediment of seawater, eating detritus and algae. She says, The number of people capable of identifying and de- scribing new species of these important parts of the food web is diminishing, but my major professor, Dr. David Thistle, is accomplished at it. " Dr. Thistle is also a favored teacher " He allows me to take an idea and expand on it. He does not force me to stay within some boundary, but allows me to explore the question completely. " — who has taught Linda how to enjoy teaching. As a new TA for Honors Oceanography, " I was uncomfortable, but he taught me how to explain things. The students and ! really enjoyed having an interactive class where they had the opportunity to think through problems. " Since that time, she has " trained everyone in the Lab, including various assistants and master ' s stu- dents, how to determine the stage and sex of harpacticoid copepods. " Teaching, she now knows, " can be very gratifying if students are willing to learn. When they begin, they are clumsy with the tools but are excited about seeing so many unique creatures collected from sediment from a nearby beach or from the deep sea. " On a recent two-week cruise in the Gulf of Mexico, Linda served as Florida State ' s lead scientist on cold seep communities (similar to deep-sea hydrothermal vents). She " collected sediment near the cold seeps and methane pools on the seafloor, and helped others with their polychaetes, which live in tubes more than 5 feet long and the crabs, isopods, and clams that live with them. " She traveled to the seafloor in a submersible — " It was amazing watching the fish swim in front of the porthole. And the methane pool was unique. Mussels live all around them, but anything that falls within the pool dies. " Linda and her major professor have co-written a number of papers on their work for the Marine Ecol- ogy Progress Series and for the Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology. She says, " This work.gives me a chance to help others understand the diversity and geographic range of these organisms in the ocean.

" says Audrey be!ph. 1 he Presser, the College of Music ' s top award, is given to a student who exhibits excellence in both music and academic performance. Audrey, however, should not be surprised. She is pursuing two undergraduate degrees — Music Per- formance and Music Therapy -and doing superbly in both. She says, " Each requires a serious com- mitment of time and musicianship. It ' s often a juggling act. " The course workload does not overlap, and although " an extra challenge, " she has " found great joy in using music across a wide spectrum — from one-on-one therapy sessions with a client lying in a hospital bed to performing solo works for audi- ences of my peers in Dohnanyi Hail. The atmosphere and goals are vastly different, but the care I take is the same. " She gives much credit to the College of Music— - " the best in the country " — and its faculty Choosing a favorite teacher is impossible, and although naming a " ' handful seems almost a disservice, " she will always be grateful to Dr. Pamela Ryan, her viola professor. It was Dr. Ryan ' s introductory lesson, while Audrey was stiil in high school, that clinched her decision to attend Florida State. " She has been a challenging pedagogue and supportive mentor, shaping me both as a musician and a person. " From Music Therapy there is Dr. Alice-Ann Darrow, who " has been very influential in directing my path and introduced me to fields I never considered. " And there ' s String Bass Professor Melanie Punter— " My string quartet was lucky enough to have her as our chamber coach. " Because of their dedication even at late Friday afternoon rehearsals, not generally a time for seriousness, the quartet has taken on the nickname " Weekend Killers Quartet. " Next on Audrey ' s agenda is a six-month Music Therapy internship, " in a climate where the leaves change. " Which area of Music Therapy has yet to be decided — " I feel drawn to Hospice care and to forensic in-patient psychiatric care. " After that, she ' s off to graduate school, perhaps overseas, for viola performance. She says, " I ' m look- ing to expand my cultural horizons. There is something very empowering about being independent in a completely new setting. Maybe that is what draws me to Therapy and Music — the ability to adapt to and understand unique environments, and to find myself again in each.

" Attend as many sporting events as you can, " says Brian Stevens, president of Seminole Student Boosters. " Crowds in atten- dance at FSU ' s varsity sports events give athletes the boost they deserve. " Better yet, he says, join Student Boosters. Watch your booster level rise In proportion to the number of events you attend and receive benefits — priority tickets to football games, athletic facilities tours, and piayer-coach sessions. Then, share your excitement with all varsity athletes at the student pep rally, Seminole Uprising, which is held the week prior to the Noles v. Miami game. Says Brian, " We start the season off right by getting the school excited about the upcoming year. " Brian, an Electrical Engineering major, started his college career off right by part:icipating in the Bryan Hall Living and Learning Community in his freshman year It ' s the one experience he ' s certain he will never forget. " Dr Dennis Moore took a personal interest in each student, making sure we thrived on a campus with thousands of students. We were required to take classes in the dorm with our dorm- mates. We made bonds that will forever be held together " Another professor Brian will always be grateful to is Dr. Mark Sussman. He changed what Brian refers to as a " difficult " Engineering Math class, " by going out of his way to show excitement, interact on a friendly basis, and care about his students ' perfonnance. It was refreshing to have a teacher take the time to make sure each of us succeeded. " Brian is a member of Garnet and Gold Key, a leadership honorary society, and the Student Alumni Association. He serves as the finance chair of the FAMU-FSU chapter of the institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and is on the Interfraternity Council Judicial Board. Still, his most enjoyable activity is to tailgate before a football game. " With the grills cooking, people hanging out, there is nothing like being a Florida State fan on game day. Students listen to stories and jokes from alumni that walked this campus years before we were born, it ' s a connection we ail share, and something to cherish.

The study of past climates helps scientists understand the evolution of the Earth ' s atmosphere and oceans, and it helps them quantify the properties of the Earth ' s climate, including the forces that drive climate change and the sensitivity of the Earth ' s climate to such force.

As for helping people directly, she is the founder and current president of Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA), a pre-health club that introduces students to health careers while teaching them leadership skills. This past summer, she helped the Big Bend Area Health Education Center put on Senior Appreciation Days at centers throughout Florida ' s Panhandle. She says, " Florida State students set up and ran information booths on HIV, heart disease, cancer, gambling problems, and fraud protection. At the cholesterol-screening booth, we tested the se- niors, reviewed their results with them, and informed them how to improve their cholesterol levels. " After graduation, Erika hopes to attend medical school, just across campus, to train to become a pediatrician in the Air Force. She says, " There is nothing better than serving your country!

Having had a " wonderful mentor " who remains a friend, Sheiiina believed she could pass the same experience along to others. Freshmen First mentors help students with their studies, but at the same time, they learn to build connections with people outside of their comfort zone. She says, " It feels good to know that they are depending on you to help them through their first year. And after two years, I stiil love the experience.

First established on Florida State ' s campus in 1992, and now on sev- eral Florida campuses, this women ' s organization performs community sen ice throughout the area. But Sheiiina ' s " most loved program is Project Ujima, which is held at Toya ' s Daycare Center. " Mem- bers instruct the children through games, arts and crafts, and discussions about historical and current events. Says Sheiiina, " The biggest reward i receive is the fact that the students remember my name. I know they will remember the impact i made in their lives. " During the summer while home in Jacksonville, Sheiiina has helped build several houses for Habitat for Humanity. Through the America Reads Program, she helps students with their homework. And then there are the poor served by the Salvation Army: the victims of domestic violence suppori;ed through the Refuge House; and troubled kids who receive guidance and support through the Boys and Girls Club. Sheiiina seems drawn to the road less traveled. Because she loves math and science, she decided to major in Industrial Engineering, an uncommon field for women.

" - senior, colette miller concentration, some students just don ' t find it in libraries by Tochi Dike g v ml The student pictured to the left is studying at the popular bookstore Borders. Off-campus study areas are popular among students with personal transportation methods. Students may feel campus offers too many distractions such as the daily movie showings, bowling at, and the friends who discourage students from working. The student below uses a computer hook-up and finds the floor com- fortable enough to catch up on his studies. Sometimes all you need is to find your own little corner. The picture below and above show two contrasting ways to study. The student above prefers the outside and a steel bench to peruse through a book for class. The stu- dent below prefers kicking up her feet on a comfy couch inside an air-conditioning building. Even though these students don ' t study alike, they both get their work done. No one can say there is only one right way to achieve scholastic success. MU a t3nfrir When it comes time to study or write a paper, people will go to extremes to concentrate, especially after hav- ing procrastinated until the last moment. Not everyone can study in their rooms, library, or study groups. These normal places can provide too many distractions, which have lead to unorthodox solutions such as the bathroom, a church, or the trunk of a car. If the conventional study areas don ' t work for you, these places might help. 1 . Studying in the bathroom is ideal because of the variety. For instance, you can plan out your paper in the shower or in the bath. The bathroom floor is a good place to type up your paper or read your book. However, the toilet is the best place to do real studying because it allows for multitasking. You ' re also least likely to fall asleep in this position. This area works best if you don ' t live in a dorm or share a bathroom with too many people. 2. For the faithful, church (or temple) is a good place to become inspired for a paper if you don ' t think it ' s sacrile- gious. The ideal time to write is during the sermon be- cause you can sit down and concentrate. Just make sure you have paper and pen ready when that divine inspiration hits. Unfortunately, this doesn ' t work for research papers. 3. For the truly stressed or adventures person, the trunk of a car is a good place to study. The trunk allows you to be isolated so you can concentrate, away from noisy roommates. However, for safety reasons, the trunk must stay open and a cell phone should be nearby. What good is studying if you ' re trapped in your trunk on the day of the exam? No matter where you study, as unusual as it might be, go to where it ' s best and do what you need to get that ' A ' you deserve. 4s Sight-seeing is a long-standing tradition when it comes to travel. Evem though the International Programs focuses on academia, the trips allow enough down time for days of exploration. The picture to the right showcases that travel- ing to a foreign country is an excit- ing but sometimes stressful ordeal. The two girls try to find the their way with a local map and a lot of determination. In the picture below, the girl is all smiles, even though it ' s raining on a sightseeing day in Venice. Florida State University International Programs is the avenue to an array of global, scholastic, and cultural opportunities, experi- ences, and understanding for students not only at Florida State but also throughout the nation. 2007 marks FSU ' s 50th anniver- sary of providing one of the top programs in an intercontinental venue, making Florida State a leader in international learning. Students have the luxury of choosing from over 20 worldwide locations, including locations in Europe, Asia, Australia, and more! Florida State offers a curriculum that allows students to satisfy graduation requisites while being immersed in a mixture of foreign cultures. Students learn to become independent as they venture off on their free time to visit other countries and by living and learning abroad. Many free-time trips are included in the general cost of FSU ' s international tuition and fees. The program also provides numerous scholarships to make the ex- perience an affordable one. Studying in a foreign country allows students to become accus- tomed to the cultures, traditions, languages, and lifestyles of for- eign regions. Having the opportunity to study abroad opens the eyes of students to new perspectives, making for the education of the whole person, one of FSU ' s goals. For FSU, college is not just about academic education, but educating the entire person in the ways of the world in order to create an enlightened, strong individual. For students whose professions include the necessity of adeptness in other languages, there is no better way to gain foreign language abilities than by experiencing the language ' s foreign culture and by being immersed in the language and cus- toms. " I not only stepped out of my American self to see another world; I have a true distinction on my resume, " said former IP student Daniel Gillion. " Learning Spanish at FSU-Valencia put an international twist on my career plans, [providing me] with more options. " Living, growing, and learning abroad helps individuals matures into self-sufficient scholars. Being completely absorbed in the culture, customs, and principles of the host nation, every student expands his or her abilities, experiences, and makes memories that will endure a lifetime. The world is your campus, go explore! International study in action. Students attend lectiu-es at the historical sites themselves rather than sitting in a classroom and watching slides. A " hands on " approach to learning. These students are getting a more compre- hensive educational experience that is more tangible and memborable, lessons that will stay with them the rest of their lives. Florida State University of- fers the unique experience of studying abroad.

Camaraderie is a key factor for the success of the Living Learn- ing Communities. To the left, the members of the Pubhc Affairs Liv- ing Learning Community show- case how Uving together as well as learning together increases trust and comfort between members. Along with camaraderie, team- work is another common goal for the Living Learning Communities. Pictured below, members put their heads together on a work assign- ment for class. % Of?J Bruno Pictured above, a member of the Music Living Learning community takes advantage of the practice rooms avail- able. A perk of being part of a Living Learning Commu- nity is the accessibility of " in house " classes and practice rooms, like the one seen above. Below, the members of WIMSE show that along with living and learning togeth- er, members also travel together. For further bonding, the community took a trip to the Caverns. Education Living Learning Community: Housed in Cawthon Hall, the freshmen who participate in this community take their education pre- requisites " in house " , with classes no larger than thirty students. Also, these students experience one-on-one interaction with children as part of their service learning as well as contribute to the Tallahassee com- munity through many planned service projects. Human Sciences Living Learning Community: Housed in Reynolds Hall, the freshmen who participate in this community are focused on a transi- tion to college with an emphasis on wellness. The members sign a Well- ness Agreement, which indicates that they will not use alcohol or drugs while residing in the community. The participants also take a colloquium course " in house " as well as often form a strong bond with their fellow members due to proximity and residence activities. Music Living Learning Community: Housed in Cawthon Hall, the Music Living Learning Community is where first and second year music majors form lasting bonds with each other as part of a close-knit community. Cawthon Hall contains a grand piano, three private practice rooms, and an ensemble practice room for the talented, musical community. The members also have the advantage of small class sizes and award-win- ning faculty presentations. WIMSE Living Learning Community: Women in Math, Science, and En- gineering is housed in Jennie Murphree Hall, soon to be Cawthon Hall in 2007, and strives to retain as many women as possible in the science and math fields. The members are given a chance to do research in their chosen fields as part of the Research Experience Program as well as take colloquium classes in which prominent women in pertinent fields present their knowledge on various subjects. Bryan Hall Living Learning Community: The Bryan Hall Living Learning Community takes on freshman students of any major, and the main goal is to acclimate students into a research university and drive their curios- ity to learn more. The students participate in courses " in house " along with a mentorship and a colloquium class. Public Affairs Living Learning Community: The Public Affairs Living Learning Community is housed in Cawthon Hall, soon to be DeGraff Hall, and attracts students who want to impact their community and so- ciety at all levels. The students take two " in house " classes while also participating in planned service events and programs. All of the members of the Living Learning Communities begin as strangers. But, these communities have the pow er to turn strangers into life-long friends. The directors try to commence bonding on the very first day, as shown in these photos. The Education Living Learning Commu- nity, at right, begins bonding through a block pyramid building activity dur- ing class. The WIMSE Living Learn- ing Community prefers an alternate bonding experience, as shown in the picture below in which students en- joy a hotdog dining experience. Florida State University incorporates many programs for under- classmen on campus. One of the premier programs is the Living and Learning Communities housed in the residence halls. Living and Learning Communities serve primarily freshmen students in a variety of majors. The students apply for a position upon entering FSU and are then housed in a hall specific to their ma- jor of interest. Students applying are housed in Cawthon Hall, Reynolds Hall, Landis Hall (and previously Gilchrist Hall), Jennie Murphree Hall, or Bryan Hall. The Living Learning Communities, seemingly very different, are alike in many aspects including the " in house " classes, com- munity service activities, social events, and student aide. Be- yond the course work and community service, these members are creating lasting bonds with students of complimentary aca- demic interests. With the molding of friendships and creation of bonds, the Living Learning Program becomes a community of friends rather than just classmates. Like the Living Learning Community ' s motto " These students aren ' t just living together, they ' re learning together. " The Living Learning Community also allows for a smooth tran- sition to college life for freshmen students. It focuses on aca- demia and integrates small classrooms, a sharp contrast to lecture halls. Living Learning also finds the idea of a close-knit community to be of great value to its students. This closeness can be very reassuring when entering into a forty-thousand strong student body. The Living Learning Community leaders, professors, and directors are very dedicated to their jobs as well and post leadership role positions in other programs and clubs around campus, giving the students the chance to succeed in other areas. Students, who are members of a Living Learning Community, have numerous personal and academic rewards due to of their experience, and this will undoubtedly enhance their future col- lege success and outlook. An integral part of the effectiveness of the Living Learn- ing Communities is the " in house " classes offered to the students. Shown above and below, the Education and Public Affairs Community showcase the small teacher- to-student ratio. The smaller-based classrooms allow the students and teachers alike to gain a more personal relationship for optimum learning. -- " ' »« t ' «ff gg Si Florida State luNIVERSlTY .■«;■.

Dr. Grindal teaches graduate courses as well as continues to write extensively about his field experiences in West Africa, Mexico, and the American South. Dr. Grindal believes strongly that his students " ...should develop their own standpoints with respect to critical issues...

Along with this tough teaching schedule he finds time to conduct his own research on subsurface transport. Mr. Gang Chen ' s ambition has always been to be an effective teacher and it is his ultimate goal that his lectures will be long remembered for their inspiration and insight. He believes it is " essential to have an emotional connection with students " and to " provide a rich, supportive environment where students are free to question, experiment, and criticize both the material and the processes of learning. " Because of this mentality, Mr. Chen strongly disagrees with teaching students to absorb and regurgitate the material but rather give students " a large degree of freedom to explore, experiment, make mistakes, and make uplifting discoveries " of their own. Mr. Chen hopes, after students have taken his class, " they have mastered skills to solve scientific problems using compu- tational tools with a fundamental understanding of basic concepts and theories.

The picture below shows a student and professor a t an exposition for social work. Students in social work learn that problems are not resolved unless the issue is brought to the attention of the public. Therefore, these expositions are a way to disseminate knowledge to the public while also practicing communication skills. 00 00 Professor Carol Edwards only began teaching in the spring of 2005, but is no new- comer to Florida State University. She is an FSU alum, and, while here, was a Lady Seminole Cheerleader. She says, " It was always my dream to teach at a University and [I] have been extremely grateful for the opportunity to teach at FSU. " Professor Edwards teaches Child Welfare Practice, Diversity in Social Work Prac- tice, and Social Work Practice. She believes and teaches " ...that each person car- ries with them a set of strengths and personal life experiences that are of value. " She also sets high expectations for herself along with providing opportunities to [iriictice concepts as part of her philosophy. While maintaining an active teaching c iireer, Professor Edwards continues towards practical betterment in various soci- etal areas. Ms. Carol Edwards is an attest to the success made possible by attend- ing Florida state and serves as a great role model for the students on campus.

Before Dr. McRorie held this position she became a very accomplished individual. First, Dr. McRorie received her Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 1 985. Then, she continued her career at Purdue University where she acted as Chair of Art and Design. In the meantime, Dr. McRorie became Co-Director of the Florida Institute for Art Education, and finally landed at FSU. Dr. McRorie previously served as the Chair of the Department of Art Education and also worked as a professor before acquiring the title of dean. Now, Dean McRorie says that she works to develop every program in her department " to be as highly regarded nationally as our first rate dance pro- gram... " . Also, she believes that success is dependent upon both creative vision and technical expertise, an ideology that encourages excellence, critical inquiry, and experimentation the department ' s prestigious programs. Dean Sally McRorie will continue to work towards her goals for the college.

" - Dean Dr. Sally McRorie m The College of Visual Arts, Dance and Theater focuses on developing individual talents and preparing students for rewarding careers. The col- lege accomplishes this partly through its world-class fac- ulty who are dedicated to pro- viding students with the re- sources and guidance needed to succeed. The college also conducts many performances throughout the year to show- case their students ' talent. The girl above displays great form as she dances in one of the many performances held for the university and com- munity of Tallahassee. visual arts, theater, and passion The College of Visual Arts, Dance, and Theater are lucky enough to have supreme facilities located on campus at their disposal. Students are encouraged to take full advan- tage of this, and they most certainly do, as shown here. The student to the left works on a painting in one of the art studios while the danc- ers below showcase their works in Montgomery Hall. These facilities are just a few of the college ' s avail- able resources. The college even has the Museum of Fine Arts lo- cated on campus along with many more theaters and auditoriums. I have been at FSU for over 18 years. I was Chair of the Art Department for my first six years and moved into the classroom teaching design courses since 1995 — and I love it. I feel that designers are an integral part of our lives, and expanding use of design has come to dominate public space. It ' s a wonderful opportunity to teach students design and I have seen many of them become successful professionals in the field. Before coming to FSU, I had worked for many years in New York City with professionals as clients, in workshops, seminars and conferences. I brought to FSU my experience and a commitment to the relationship of designers to the world and how maintaining that re- lationship is a continuous learning process. In my teaching, I encourage students to adapt information into a way of seeing and to develop an approach that leads them to under- stand our rapidly changing society. It ' s inspiring to me to see students develop a method for solving problems, to think critically and to develop a personal visual style of design. It ' s the fundamental direction that I try to take each class— then the students do the rest. 00 Departments: Studio Art, Art Education, Art History, Dance, Interior Design, Special Programs, School of Theatre Undergraduate Students: 1,458 Graduate Students: 326 Male: 478 Female: 1,306 Enrolled: 1,784 1 f m 1 ,„ ' , :,.••.

Shown to the left, students fully conceptualize scientific principles by conduct- ing an experiment and recording their results independently. Also, pictured below, an engineering student works on a project of his own, implementing the tools and knowledge he has acquired earlier in his studies. These two examples showcase the long-standing effec- tiveness of hands-on learning. " To teach is to touch lives forever. " This anonymous quote rings true for many educators. Teachers are the foundation of this country ' s success. They inspire students to reach their full po- tential. While teaching embodies a great challenge, the oppor- tunity to directly inspire students ' lives and impact the future is a most gratifying experience. Professors, at the university level, are given more financial resources than other levels of instruc- tors due to their specialized advanced degrees. Despite this dif- ference, teachers still face the challenge of being responsible for the future, great minds of America. This responsibility may be overwhelming, but most instructors view their career experi- ences as an educational adventure, both for themselves and their students. One of the greatest challenges facing teachers is engaging di- verse students of all academic levels in the coursework at-hand. This is where different teaching styles come into play. No two professors teach alike, and many have incorporated multiple teaching methods to create a more comprehensive educational experience for their students. A large majority of professors fo- cus on auditory lectures. One advantage to these lectures is that students have the opportunity to critically analyze the subject matter and potentially challenge the material through discussion and questions. This creates a two-way communication channel that benefits both student and teacher. A negative aspect of lec- tures is some students are susceptible to boredom or daydream- ing while listening to an instructor speak. Yet, for many, this tradi- tional method of teaching still creates for effective learning. To stave off boredom, many professors implement other meth- ods such as PowerPoint software presentations. This type of computer graphic presentations allows students to be visually stimulated while listening to lectures at the same time. Another effective teaching method is to include hands-on activities in les- sons. With this method, the instructor incorporates visual, audi- tory, kinesthetic, and tactile senses. All of these varied teaching methods make Florida State University professors some of the most effective in the country; and their success contributes to FSU students ' success. They continue towards innovation in their teaching techniques, and FSU students benefit everyday from their superb teaching skills and evolving methods. Pictured above and below, Dr. Mischa Laurents and Mr. Dan Shafer, instructors in the Department of Commu- nication, showcase that building trusting and personal relationships with students is another " hidden " teaching style prevalent on FSU ' s campus. Personal relationships allow students to view their professors more as col- leagues and less as an authoritative figure, which only improves learning competency. stu dentrespondstjiij es airrerently.

To the left, the Honors Council hosts an ice cream social in Landis Hall for the new inductees. The Honors Program emphasizes far more than just the academic side of life, as shown in the picture below as well. With so- cials such as these, the Program aims to create a small community in which each of its students can find a place to call his or her own. The Honors program is dedicated to developing schol- ars as well as leaders on campus. Above, undergraduate honors students, acting as role models, program give oral presentations to other students interested in the program. Below, honors students get one-one-one interaction with Nobel Prize winner Harry Kroto, showcasing the Honors Program ability to network students. On the surface, it ' s merely an addition to a resume, a marl of scholastic achievement. However, the Florida State Honors Pro- gram is far more than challenging classes and a reward for a high GPA. It ' s an experience, one invaluable to its participants. Admission into the program is acceptance into a world of ex- traordinary possibility and opportunity. One aspect that many of the participating students hold dear is the chance to register for classes on a first-priority basis, along with seniors. The rush to register for classes is often one of the most stressful situations a university student will encounter. It ' s a fight to the finish, and FSU Honors students have an advantageous head start in the semiannual race. Another benefit is exclusive housing opportu- nities. In the 2006 2007 school year, Landis Hall and Gilchrist Hall served as exclusively honors housing. (In the school year to come, Landis will serve as the sole Honors Program housing.) These renovated halls offer quiet study rooms on every floor, innumerable social events, and an intellectually competitive en- vironment. The program provides every opportunity for each of its residents to succeed. On the academic side of life, honors students may also register for courses exclusive to the program. These classes may be augmented regular courses or courses specially designed for the prestigious program ' s students. It is within each student ' s discretion to enroll in these classes. The only program require- ment is to attend the University Honors Colloquium during the student ' s freshman year and to maintain at least a 3.20 GPA each semester. However, students who complete eighteen hours of Honors courses or participate in sanctioned research, creative projects, or community service will gain the title of " hon- ors finishers " . If a student does not meet the requirements for admission to the program prior to the start of university admis- sion, the student may apply if and when they achieve university requirements for GPA. The FSU Honors Program is an opportu- nity one cannot afford to miss. vO Florida State ' s graduate program consistently ranks among the top 25 universities in many areas of study, including Physics, Chem- istry, Statistics, and many oth- ers. Florida State tries to offer an individualized program for each student, encompassing an intel- lectually stimulating environment, award-winning faculty, and stu- dent-based research. The picture to the right showcases that gradu- ate research can be accomplished in any forte. FSU prides itself on offering the only Ph.D. program in creative writing in all of Florida. After four years of little sleep and lots of coffee, the furthest thing from most students ' minds is continuing their education beyond their undergraduate degrees. Yet, last year, 7,926 students, both returning and new, arrived at Florida State with their sights set on another degree. Some decided to come back because the idea of a new job and a new life overwhelmed them. Others spent several years in the workforce only to discover that they could be further along in their various careers with higher level degrees. Still others find graduate programs a personal challenge. What- ever the reason, students from all fifty states and ninety-five countries are currently enrolled in a Florida State ' s graduate program. They have the opportunity to learn from people they no longer consider teachers but rather colleagues, men- tors, and friends. These mentors are knowledgeable about their subject mat- ter as well as willing to assist in the success of one another ' s futures. Nobel Laureates, members of the National Academy of Sciences and American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Guggenheim Fellows, and Pulitzer Prize recipients are all members of the prestigious FSU faculty. Graduate students have a wealth of resources available to them outside of the faculty, including new graduate student orientation, reserved on-campus living areas, conferences on grant writing and ethical research, and activities such as sporting events and concerts. Students new to Florida State have to endure the mundane tasks of navigating Tallahassee, obtaining an FSU card, registering for a parking permit, and establishing an FSU e-mail address. However, former students, transitioning from undergraduate studies to graduate work, experience a smooth transition to their upper level studies. While the idea of spending another seventeen months in school does not appeal to everyone, those who choose to pursue a graduate degree are guaranteed a rigorous yet beneficial experience. The two graduates below and above demonstrate the di- versity of Florida State ' s graduate program. FSU prides itself on being ranked among the top 20 universities in the nation for the number of doctoral degrees given to minority students.

Graduation opens many doors for many different possible futures. No matter where each graduate ends up, they vdll always have a home at FSU. You may not be sitting in the student section, but that ' Alum- ni ' sticker on your car beams joy no matter where you sit. Many students look forward to the end of their undergraduate years in college. After four years, most students are ready to call it quits and hop right into the competitive job market, whereas oth- ers choose to continue their educations by going to graduate school, law school, or medical school. Some may even choose to further their educations while working. Typically, a four-year college graduate has the advantage over those who opted out of higher education when it comes to obtaining a good job. Students at Florida State University have an even bigger advantage because they have access to the Career Center, located in building A of the Uni- versity Center. The Career Center is a dependable source for students seeking employment. A quarter of the jobs are for employment at FSU, but most of the jobs are available in and around Tallahassee and around the country. In addition to its extensive job listings, the Career Center provides other ser- vices that are helpful to student job seekers, such as mock interviews and resume writing. No matter what students decide to do after gradu- ation, their lives won ' t be a picnic. The world out- side of college is full of responsibilities. Those who go to college and survive are able to get a glimpse at what it will be like to live alone, pay your own bills, and follow a set schedule every week. Yet, FSU does its best to prepare students for life. j m )« g » -WS». •V» «. - °!|? -»»--»- ' ' ' ' ' mimimmmmimmmimimttgmmmammmmii ' ' Campus ministries are abun- dant and diverse at Florida State.

Whether a student is looking for a good meal, a family or spiritual enlightenment, there is a ministry w aiting to serve. Lewis The Baptist Collegiate Ministry always puts together a fan- tastic float for the homecoming parade. Campus ministries actively recruit students to attend their worship services and community events. The BCM is not a church but instead an extension of the church on campus.

Located on West Col- lege Avenue, the organization ' s two-story, white house once served as the home of the Vice-President of the Florida State Women ' s College; currently it serves as a home away from home for many members. Members of the Wesley Foundation participate in weekly com- munion during the organization ' s Sunday service. While the idea of weekly communion seems strange to many new members, the group chooses to do it to remind them every week of the sacrifices Jesus Christ made for them. The Wesley Foundation is one of the most recognizable structures on campus, commonly referred to as the bomb shelter. Vance Rains gives motivational, enlightening ser- mons every week and a highly talented praise band leads worship. The group is also active throughout the week organizing Wednes- day night dinners, family groups, service projects and retreats. The Seminole Dance Force is a nationally ranked, competitive dance team here at Florida State Uni- versity. The group consists of jazz, pom and hip-hop dancing . Try-outs are held in September and the team has the opportunity to perform at campus events such as Pow-Wow , Dance Marathon and Spear-It Night. In the spring, the team competes in the National Dance Alliance Competition. Last year, they ranked 8th in the Challenge Cup. The team provides dancers with a way to focus only on competitions. KoUage Dance Troupe preforms annually at COBOL, Coalition of Black Organization Leaders. This year ' s event took place in Ruby Diamond Auditorium and was themed " Past, Present, and Future. " Kollage represented the past by creating their own version of Wood- stock, called Blackstock. Founded in 1998 by Tamara Prince, the group is not simply a hip-hop dance group. Instead they aim to be a melting pot of rhythm and dance. Members are from different cul- tures and backgrounds, but they unite in the art of dance. In their performances, Kollage incorporates all types of music from jazz and hip-hop to blues. The Irish Dance Club performed at Spear- It Night during Homecoming Week. The club was founded in 2005 and has already performed at many local events. While Irish dancing is traditionally more popular in more Northern regions, the group is gaining interest in Tallahassee. During their prac- tices, the first half is dedicated to teaching new members basic steps and the second half is devoted to group dancing. Members are not required to have any background in Irish dancing. All a participant needs is a desire to learn more about the culture and dance. WrKTg HI The Corazon dancers performed at Spear-It Night during Home- coming Week. ' iTie group was es- tabhshed in 2001 and encourages all types of dancers to audition.

Members of College Republicans campaigned at the corner of Monroe and Tennessee in support of Charlie Crist. Col- lege Republicans were especially active this fall due to the midterm elections. This year the College Repubhcans ' two goals were to double their membership as well as help elect Charlie Crist to the position of governor. Throughout the year, the group, which consists of over 500 members, has weekly meetings and participates in other campus events such as intramurals, homecoming, and community service. vitet n Kathleen O ' Neal greets studentfejiutside of Bel- lamy.

Founded on the idea of " Listen first, then lead " the organization is popular amongst students. The party ' s platform changes with the changing needs of students, but has included such issues as blocking an increase in tuition, expand- ing homecoming, and improving campus security.

Near the end of the fall sennester, the top officials in both Voice, another campus party, and I.M.P.A.C.T. came together to discuss a possible merger since the two parties seemed to share many com- mon goals and values. These officials in- cluded Tim Hooper, John Formella, Danyell Shackelford, and James Faeh. I.M.P.A.C.T. members, tabling in the union, try to inform the stu- dent body about their platform and goals. Spreading the word about a new political party is difficult due to the over 300 other registered student organizations simultaneously competing for attention and members. Often, a new group can get lost in the shuffle of posters, flyers, and union tables. I.M.P.A.C.T campaigned on issues includ- ing the addition of rape kits and extended hours at Thagard, ensur- ing GPS Tracking at campus bus stops, the in.stallation of cameras in parking garages, advocating for a standardized grading scale, and extending hours at campus dining halls and libraries. Campus political parties are always evolving. This year alone there have been many changes in the FSU political scene.

By the end of the year, Voice and I.M.P.A.C.T. had merged, and Insight was still going strong. Next year, I.M.P.A.C.T. hopes to become a force at FSU and welcomes anyone wanting to make an im- pact on campus. Although they had to operate on a Umited budget, I.M.P.A.C.T. utiUzed several clever methods of reaching out to the student body.

He led the Semi- nole defense with four solo tackles and five assisted tackles to hold Tiger offense to 27 points. Davis en- tered his senior season as the team ' s top returning tackier with 91 total tackles, making him one of the most feared linebackers in the country. Breaking the tackle against the Virginia defense, se- nior running back Lorenzo Booker gained ten yards on the play giving Florida State the first down. In the 33-0 victory over the Cavaliers, Booker rushed for 45 yards and a touchdown. Booker has impressed Seminole fans by accounting for over 2,000 all-pur- pose yards during is college career. ■m Punting the ball deep into Rice territory, sopho- more Graham Gano prevented the Owls from having a good field position. Kicking once for 48 yards and landing inside the twenty, Gano forced the opposing team to make an attempt to drive down the field on their own 15 yard line. t Sports Information Making the tackle for loss from behind, the talented sophomore linebacker Eugene Hayes did not allow the Miami Hurricanes to convert the third down. Contributing immensely on the road, the weak side linebacker recorded eight tackles to help the Florida State Seminoles tri- umph against their rival in the Orange Bowl for the first time since 1998. The Seminoles ex- tended their streak over the Hurricanes to two games with a 13-10 victory with a late second- half comeback. Performing the Pyramid, the all-girls cheerleading squad execute one of their hardest performances. The all-girls cheerleading squad has always been a perennial part of Florida State athletics, always helping the crowd get in the Seminole Spirit at home games in every sport. The cheerleaders complete many difficult acrobatic stunts to awe and please the crowd, demonstrating talents that any Seminole fan would applaud. Executing their acrobatic cheers during the time-out, the co-ed cheerleading squad tries to rally the crowd to stand up and cheer for the Seminole defense. The co-ed squad involves hard train- ing and precision due to their highly difficult stunts. Their long hours of practice and dedication are well rewarded during home games when the faithful Semi- noles applaud the Garnet and Gold Cheerleaders. Provoking the crowd to cheer louder, cheer- leaders Ryan Kline and Jess Porter execute the High-V in front of a crowd of 82,000 at Doak Campbell Stadium. Typically, people only asso- ciate cheerleaders with football. However, the Seminole co-ed squad is involved in all aspects of Seminole Athletics, including basketball, vol- leyball, and pep rallies.

Attending to the injury on the field, these train- ers and team physicians come to the assistance of Andre Fluellens ' cramp injury. In the case of a se- rious injury, physicians will x-ray and make sure athletes are ready to get back on the field. In Fluel- lens ' injury, hydration is the key to prevent harm. Athletes need to consume plenty of water during play to avoid severe harms such as spasms or hav- ing to retire from the game due to overheating and vertigo. Athletic trainers are responsible for pre- paring the Gatorade and water containers, as well as keep players refreshed. After the pre-game warm-up, this trainer tapes Greg Carr ' s ankle before kick-off. Before kick-off, trainers tape ankles, wrists, and fingers to prevent or protect injuries. Taping is a procedure that uses tape, attached to the skin, to physically keep in place muscles or bones in a specific position. This eases and facilitates recuperation and is usually used to aid in recovery from overuse and other injuries. Driving the injured football player off the field to be examined, 82,000 fans applaud to encourage the student athlete ' s good health. Athletic train- ers are the first health treatments responders in the event when injuries occur, and consequently must be able to be aware of, examine, and assess injifries and supply instantaneous attention when required. f 10 00 Stretching out a player before the Boston College black out game, this athletic trainer helps pre- vent any pulled or sore muscles and muscle ten- sion. According to the National Athletic Trainer Association, trainers are highly knowledgeable and trained medical professionals specialized in prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of inju- ries. Florida State athletic trainers aid all other athletic programs. However, football utilizes the most trainers due to the size of the roster and dangerousness of football. Miami 13-1C? Troy ? ' .

Hugh Durham was a great asset to Florida State both as a player and a coach, but what many peo- ple don ' t know is that he almost played football for Kentucky. It may have been a fluke that Durham ended up playing bas- ketball at Florida State, but the Seminoles are certainly lucky that he did. Jnlk i u ' iHnd Jlnnn Warrick Dunn is without a doubt the best running back Florida State has ever seen. With rushing yards in the thousands, Dunn broke school records with each passing season. Dunn was a three-time All- ACC pick and was also named to the ACC All-Academic team. He was a first round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1997, and later signed with the Atlanta Falcons as a free agent in 2002. Dunn has made two Pro Bowl appearances, one in 1997 and the other in 2000. In addition to being a superior athlete, Warrick Dunn has not been a stranger to charitable giving since joining the NFL. His " Homes for the Holidays " program helps single mothers own their first homes. Dunn later estab- lished the Warrick Dunn Foundation, which is " dedicated to providing opportunities for economically disadvantaged single parents and children who have demonstrated a commitment to achieve financial independence and stability. " Dunn demonstrates dedication to both athleticism and to improving the world around him. 4 H-ick hhercfk r Derrick Brooks is a standout among FSU athlete alumni. After graduating in 1995, Brooks was a first round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As team captain, he helped lead the Bucs to their first Super Bowl Championship in 2002. Brooks has made a record nine consecutive Pro Bowl appearanc- es and was named 2006 Pro-Bowl MVP. He has also been honored as 2002 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and AP Defensive Player of the Year. Derrick Brooks has devoted his life not only to football, but to giving back to the community as well. His philanthropic efforts have made him a co-recipient of the 2000 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award and winner of the 2003 Bart Star Award and 2004 Byron " Whizzer " White Award. " The mission of Derrick Brooks Charities, Inc. is to provide educational opportunities for socio-economically challenged youth that will instill, inspire, broaden, and develop cultural and social vision outside of the walls in which they live to ensure that these young people have every chance to develop into the strong and productive leaders of tomorrow. " kiyvu W ftn After graduating from Florida State in 1991 , Kim Batten ' s career in track and field took off. She was a U.S. Outdoor champion 6 times, in 1991 and 1994-1998. In 1995she was also the Pan Am Champion. That same year, she achieved what is perhaps her greatest accomplishment by setting a World Re- cord in the 400 meter hurdle that still stands today. Batten was a 1 995 world champion and 1 997 world bronze medalist. She made two appearances in the Olympic Games, first in Atlanta in 1996 where she took home a silver medal, and again in Sydney, Australia in 2000 where she struggled due to injury. Now that Kim Batten has retired from the track, she resides here, in Tallahassee. ajAy !fv Hugh DurrtgnV success throughout his 44-year coaching career makes him one of the winningest coaches in college basketball, with over 600 wins. He is the all-time wins leader at 3 different schools, and the only coach to take two different programs to their first and only Final Four. In 1972, Durham led Florida State to the NCAA Championship Game. In his own playing days, Hugh Durham was a highly decorated star of the FSU basketball team. He racked up 1,381 points during his 3-year career here, and many of his records still stand in the FSU record books. Durham ' s 43 points against Stetson in 1957 ranks 2nd all-time at FSU for a single game. Florida State ' s team MVP award was renamed the " Hugh Durham Most Valuable Player " award in 1999. Durham has coached some of basketball ' s best players, including nine All-Americans, four Academic All-Americans, four first-round NBA draft picks, and two Olympians. Fifteen of his players went on to play in the NBA. Not only has Hugh Dur- ham been a model for players, but for coaches as well. He considers himself " a coach ' s coach, " and was honored with the naming of the Hugh Durham Mid-Major Coach of the Year award that is given each season in his honor As team co-captain, Brooke Wyckoff ranked in the ACC ' s top nine in six statistical categories, averaging 14.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. She was a three-time ACC All-Academic pick and won the ACC postgraduate scholarship. Her talents are vast and so is her potential. Today, playing for the Chicago Sky, her potential reflects the name o| her team; the sky ' s the limit. Jessica van der Linden was a star pitcher for FSU, leading the Seminoles to their 7th Women ' s College World Series. Her awards are numerous, including being named an Easton All-American in her 2004 senior season. Warrick Dunn ' s four-year career playing for Florida State made him a standout in college foot- ball. He holds several records at FSU, including most touchdowns scored in a career with 49 and most rushing yards with 3,959. Dunn is also the only Seminole ever to rush for over 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. T. K. Wetherell, the 13th president of Florida State, is a man known fondly to nnany FSU students as simply " T.K. " President Wetherell is the first alumnus of FSU ever to serve as president. He attended Florida State on a football scholarship, sporting the Seminole jersey from 1963-1967. T.K. was also a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. Since graduation, he has served 12 years in the Florida House of Representatives, with two as Speaker of the House.

T.K. has been inducted into the University ' s Hall of Fame and has received the prestigious Moore-Stone Award, the Circle of Gold Award, as well as Florida State ' s Distinguished Service Award. In his message to the university community, T.K. states that, " Through building our academic reputa- tion and encouraging the development of our students as citizens, we are dedicated to making Florida State University an institution that enables students to realize their goals and ambitions. " ' iito wn yJl the most decorated female athlete ever at Florida State, Jessica van der Linden ' s success as a Seminole may never be matched. As an outfielder, hitter, and pitcher, she did it all. Jessica was named ACC Rookie of the Year in 2001, and earned back-to-back ACC Playerof the Year honors in 2003 and 2004. She ranked nationally in strikeouts, batting average, and ERA. Among the Seminoles, she led her team in seven offensive categories and posted the second-highest single season batting average in FSU Softball history. Jessica also played on the international stage, pitching for the Puerto Rican National Team at the 2002 International Softball Federation ' s Women ' s World Championship. In 2004, Jessica became the first female athlete from FSU to be nominated for an ESPY award, when she was named one of five contenders for Best Female College Athlete. Also in 2004, Jessica was named USA Softball ' s Player of the Year. Though her playing days may be over, Jessica ' s life has not strayed far from the world of sports. She is married to another distinguished athlete from FSU, Seatle Seahawks safety Michael Boulware. C Cie A,y Jr4, Florida State quarterback Charlie Ward is the most decorated player in the history of college football.

Among his more than 30 individual awards, Ward was honored with the prestigious AAU Sul- livan Award. In addition to being a football star, Charlie Ward has continued his athletic career as a professional basketball player. He was selected in the first round of the NBA draft by the New York Knicks and later played for the Houston Rockets. During her four years as a Seminole, Brooke Wyckoff posted record-breaking stats and earned sev- eral ACC honors. She is Florida State ' s all-time shot block leader with 209, ranking 6th all-time in the ACC. Wyckoff also ranks 5th in all-time rebounds (804) and steals (189) at FSU.

Ho% ' Hosting nearly 40,000 students, the campus of Florida State University can be quite intimidating to an incoming freshman or a new student. 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 diverse 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 fraterni- ties; 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 cul- turally based council. Each division 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. Amember of the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority and graduating senior, Jennifer Hoskins, recalls her first impressions of Greek Life at Florida 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 important of these is the unity throughout a single organization. Accepting new members each semester, houses on this campus pride themselves on extending their brother- hood 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 common values to achieve this unity and friendship. Throughout this experience, students turn into brothers and sisters, and strang- ers emerge as lifelong fnends. Ranging from small tasks, such as recommending a professor, to larger circum- stances, 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 connects someone with other students of similar in- terests, and challenges and encourages them to become a better person and a more confidant leader. No matter what the letters may be, it is truly the bonds of sisterhood and broth- erhood that make Greek Life on this campus amazing. Within each house, the bonds keep growing as individual Greek members work together every day to not only strengthen their own organization, but Greek Life on Florida State ' s campus as a whole.

Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities. We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character in- spired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and help- fulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live. - Panhellenic Creed Sorority Life. Those two words have so many unique meanings to so many distinctive individuals; some may feel comfort from the idea of a second family while others experi- ence pride at the thought of being a member of one of the strongest traditions at Florida State. The four values, which unify all of those whom Panhellenic embraces, can be found in every home and in each woman: leadership, scholarship, community service, and friendship. Just as the creed asserts the undeniable character that is strengthened within the Pan- hellenic sisters, leadership is a significant facet of the Greek community. They are pres- idents within honor societies and professional fraternities; they founded major political groups within student government, and they represent the university as Homecoming courtiers. With over four-hundred leadership opportunities within their own community, they even take the initiative to recognize their own outstanding leaders through circles like Order of Omega. With the strong extracurricular atmosphere, Panhellenic women still manage to meet or exceed the university ' s all-women ' s grade point average for well over the last four years. They provide academic workshops such as resume writing and encourage study habits through incentives for study hours. Panhellenic holds a semi-annual scholarship banquet for the highest-achieving women within their community as well as one excep- tional sister who represents every component of their ideals. Even with social events, the Greek community donated over $100,000 to charitable organizations and contributed more than 30,000 recorded hours of community service in the past academic year. Philanthropic efforts such as Dance Marathon, benefiting the Children ' s Miracle Network, succeed in large part due to the efforts of Panhellenic women. The women support each other as well as other Greek and community organi- zations while contributing to other programs such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Prevent Child Abuse America. Between date functions and hayrides, football blocks and intramurats, you ' ll find the best of friends and times within the Panhellenic community. They are a value-based and nationally recognized legacy, which lasts a lifetime across geography and generations, ensuring success among the sisters.

IT WAS THE ORGANIZATION ' S RESPONSIBLITY TO SUBMIT ALL REQUESTED MATERIALS BY THE GIVEN DEADLINE. The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is an assembly of nine African American Greek letter organizations. This collection of fraternities and sorori- ties refer to each other as the " Divine 9 " . The organizations making up this body are Kappa Alpha Psi, Delta Sigma Theta, Omega Psi Phi, Sigma Gam- ma Rho, Phi Beta Sigma, Zeta Phi Beta, lota Phi Theta, Alpha Kappa Alpha, and Alpha Phi Alpha. Each organization functions separately having an official week during the fall or spring semester. Along with the exciting events in the respective weeks organizations within the NPHC always include seminars and usually at least one community service event. As a collective body the NPHC also has its own official week of events. Dur- ing September this year the annual NPHC week was held. One of the main events during the week was a Family Feud game show hosted by Kappa Alpha Psi on Thursday night. This event consisted of two mixed fraternity so- rority teams with members from each organization. The winner from this pair then faced a team from the audience. Two other events In the week were the stroll off which took place that Friday, and a party at the State Room on Saturday night (Union Ballroom). The stroll off was a competition within the NPHC to see who has the best strolls. Strolls are organized dances that take place in a forward moving line. Although on this occasion strolls were done in a head to head battle. On Saturday morning of the week the council hosted a campus clean up community service. Vari- ous members of the organizations joined together to clean up trash on Florida State ' s campus. The State Room party which took place Saturday night was a fundraiser for Extravaganza (Extrav), which is the NPHC ' s major annual step show that will take place in January at Ruby Diamond Auditorium. This step show is actu- ally a huge philanthropy that donates over one thousand dollars to a charity of the councils choosing. Although the organizations also have an incentive to step since the first place fraternity and sorority each get $1,000. The National Pan-Hellenic Council has numerous activities and philanthropies as a whole although its general purpose is just to instill unity between the Greek organiza- tions that make up the " Divine 9 " .

It has been portrayed in different lights by nnovies and television shows. The most notable of these is probably the slightly exaggerated depiction of Delta Tau Chi in Animal House, which is not a real Greek orga- nization. Nevertheless, the images on the big screen and television tend to omit certain aspects of fraternal life that are the glue ultimately holding every fraternity together. Leave it to Hollywood. After all, who wants to watch a movie based on 80 fraternity guys doing community service? Fraternities have so much to offer any young man. The first fraternities were founded on brotherhood derived from super ordinate goals. For ex- ample, " Standing behind certain ideals and similar beliefs instills a sense of camaraderie in most people. " The idea behind wearing Greek letters is exactly this: to create a bond that will carry through and beyond the college years. Friendship, chivalry, and service are just some of the ideals fraternities use to do this. This sense of camaraderie continues in intramural sports where the organization of fraternity life and the support of individuals come together. Here at Florida State, fraternal intramural athletics have provided some of the best competition this campus has to offer in just about every sport available. A host of great high school athletes have found homes in both the Greek community and the intramural field simultaneously. Fraternities, not only here at Florida State but throughout the country, house some of America ' s brightest minds and leaders. Here at FSU, the vice president of the student body was fraternity affiliated along with several members of the student senate. Even last year ' s Homecoming King was a fraternity man. Scholastically speaking, Greeks have a higher graduation rate than non-Greeks. Also, 76% of congress and 85% of fortune 500 company executives are Greek affiliated. This is a testament to the leadership skills and staying power the Greek system can provide. Lead- ership, working with others, and problem-solving are all things fraternities seek to instill in young men today. Furthermore, students involved in fraternity life are more closely tied to their school and its campus through numerous events such as FSU Home- coming, during which every fraternity and sorority are paired up to show their school spirit by building floats for the Homecoming Parade, creating a skit bursting with pride, or by creating a banner to hang in the Union that shows love for the University. In addition to Homecoming, there is also Dance Marathon, which is the largest run student philanthropy here at FSU. Every year, it consistently raises dollar amounts in the hundred of thousands for Shands Children ' s Hospital, Children ' s Miracle Network, and the Florida State University School of Medicine. The service to the community doesn ' t stop there. Most fraternities here at Florida State University have a charity to whom they donate funds to by setting up and running their own philanthropies every year. These philanthropies are the product of countless hours of canning before football games, asking for donations from local businesses, and overall campus fundraising and awareness. Being an active and contributing part of the community, you live in is a very large part of fraternity life and being a fraternity man. it ' s no surpnse that over $100,000 a year is brought from Greek life philanthropy ' s alone. Being a fraternity man has a way of driving home how important it is to be involved with the school and community. Above all, it makes it so everyone has the potential to do so. With so much to offer today ' s students, fraternity life continues to be a major functioning part of any college campus, providing young men with the friends and leadership skills that will last a life time. maraderie hi thm. interfraternity council k yvy 3 my kife ep5f n M yvy niyu ALL INFORMATION WAS REQUESTED BY THE GREEK LIFE EDITOR OF EACH ORGANIZTION.

The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a young female moth. " -Drew White, President The Westcott building at Florida State University is one of the most recognized and grand buildings on campus. The fountain in front of it is a beautiful place for reflection, quiet meditation, or a little night time swimming. That ' s right, it ' s not unusual to go by Westcott on any given night and see someone splashing around in the fountain. Being thrown in the fountain by friends at the end of a long night of celebration is a very popular birthday ritual here at Florida State. It is just one of many unique and time-honored University traditions. Game days at Florida State are like holidays to students and faculty alike. It doesn ' t make a difference what time a football game starts; hours before onej can see hundreds of students walking from miles away in one direction. Like children following the pied-piper, all roads lead to Indian Village. This apart- ment complex directly across the street from the stadium holds throngs of people who tailgate until kickoff. " There are wall to wall people, " junior Kara Sirois said about the festivities. " I ' ve seen people of all ages, people with their parents, even people from rival schools. Everyone has a great time looking forward to the game. " Once inside the stadium, Seminole football games are a sight to see. Chief Osceola rides in on his horse Renegade, and plants a flaming spear on the fifty yard line. The renowned Marching Chiefs play along to tens of thousands of people, dressed in garnet and gold, singing the War Chant and doing the Chop. Florida State football games are a sight unlike any other. It may be difficult to realize how important traditions are until they are threat- ened to be taken away. The university was unsure of whether or not they would be able to keep their beloved Seminole symbol that they have since 1947, due to a pending investigation. The school fought to keep it, and won. The beloved Seminole is a revered symbol that Florida State is proud to call its own. Florida State University ' s numerous traditions make this institution a truly spe- cial place to learn, teach, and work. Being a Seminole goes far beyond these things. It is a way of life complete with songs and symbols; with garnet and gold flowing through the heart; and a yearly dip a fountain.

A final thanks goes to Marvin Mayer and everyone at Taylor publishing! Thank you all for making this a great year, and I look forward to seeing you all again in the fall for the ' 08 book!

" " The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. " -Elisabeth Foley Yearbook once again proved to be a nnemorable experi- ence. I have learned mucin more than I ever thought possible about photography this year and look forward to more in the future. I would like to thank the ex- ceptional photography staff as well as my co-editor, who delivered wonderful pictures to make the 2007 Renegade the best yet. Junior year at FSU has been nothing close to what I would have imagined. This year alone I have been on the football field for of our ups and downs, made friends on and off the field, learned a new tnck to perform during the 60th Anniversary of the FSU Flying High Circus, gained new friends, watched my Best Fnend get mar- ried, rushed the court when FSU beat UF at home in basketball, took a Spnng Break trip to Disney with my roommate, and have done so much more, Florida State and the Renegade yearbook has provided me with so many opportunities and expenences, I have been blessed with three amazing roommates: Bndget, Christina and Helden, This semester would not have been the same without this group. Even though the year had Its moments when all I wanted was for It to end, my girls were there for me From our midnight talks and pillow fights to our runs to the hospitals around town. You girls have made this semester a great memory I can ' t wait to see what next year has In store for us I would like to thank my Co-Editor Cody, for being such a help with the workload and a great photographer. The photography staff this year has worked extremely hard to meet all the deadlines and provide the staff with great photos, Bndget, Laura and Jennifer your work and dedication to the staff was Invaluable. Thank you all for working so hard on all our deadlines and getting the photos In on time We had a few tough times but the photo staff worked through It, Your pictures are beautiful and look great on the pages, I also want to thank Kristin for stepping In Spring semester and filling In, Thanks for all your hard work and getting our contacts to get back to us. To our wonderful Taylor Publishing Representative, Marvin Mayor, You have been a huge help and guide to us. Thank you for teaching me some of your secrets on photography. It was great having you on the field and court with us taking pictures. You are a pro and have been a great help with getting us pictures as well. Thank you. Proud to be a Seminole! GO NOLES!!

Our memories are priceless and so Is this wonderful pub- lication. I am so proud to be part of the amazing team that makes Renegade possible. Everyone involved contrib- uted their time, energy, and talent to make a beautiful yearbook that represents everything FSU means to us, the student body, and the faculty. I would like to thank my fellow staff members for constantly going the extra mile, staying on task, and for making Renegade a prior- ity in their lives. I would like to thank my family, friends, and boyfriend for being so understanding about my time constraints and obligations that so often take me away from them. Renegade has provided me with the oppor- tunity to make new friends, gain new abilities and experiences, and find an even deeper appreciation for everything that occurs at Florida State University. FSU is truly a university that caters to each individual, a place that every FSU student can call home. It ' s good to be home. or ism ' i7js!tion c jk J i % % T Finals week may signal the end of classes but the work on the Renegade Yearbook goes on. The dedicated staff that has brought the Renegade back to campus works endlessly to ensure that deadlines are met, copy is written and the final product is shipped on time. In its second year of produc- tion, the book has grown in popularity, enlarged its staff and developed a more col- legiate theme. Personally, I have never been prouder of a group of people and the effort they put in to the goal they want to accom- plish. Working with many campus organizations has allowed me to meet so many wonderful students. I admire the work they are doing and the dedication they put into their interests. This year would have never been possible without my CO editor Libby Avery, we often laughed about our predicaments and complained about non-responders yet managed to get each other to the finish line. You are wonderful! This book will always remind me of the hours I spent in the office waiting on Photoshop to load and the endless pursuit of another club but most of all it will remind me of a year full of work, play and memories. 00 00 As a freshman at Florida State, overwhelmed by the amount of people, the amount of freedom, and with the amount of extracur- ricular options available I needed a stable and familiar grounding, so I chose to join the yearbook staff. As a three year yearbook veteran in high school, I was sur- prised that FSU had just launched its first book in 10 years the year before I arrived, so I felt privileged to be a part of such an important and memorable project. It was great to see my work on the aca- demics section progress and come together at the end of the year as well as my progression as a well- rounded woman. My first year taught me that college is a journey. The beginning of my journey was an incredible experience...! cannot wait to see what the future holds in store for me. Florida State means more to me than just going to class. It is a place for getting in- volved and meeting people. The friends I ' ve met at Florida State are some of the best I ' ve ever had encourage everyone to get involved (and join yearbook)! " Laughter is the key to happiness! " I am a junior Creative Writing major at FSU. I am an active member in the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma as well as a staff writer for the FSView and Florida Flambeau. The yearbook has given me the opportunity to see what behind the scenes is like for making such an imiportant book. I have had fun getting to know more about my University and working with lots of great people. •»: ath tic 7. feivss.% H |H i ■v«« SSI f t ■1 ? 1 p hB r - ' ■■- " .

I am proud to be part of a university that has so many accomplishments worth preserving. Seeing this book come together has opened my eyes to parts of campus and student life that I wasn ' t familiar with, and given me a new perspective on the Florida State community as a whole. It truly is great to be a Seminole! I ' d like to thank my fellow editors for all of their amazing work, especially Etta and Kristin for dedicating so much time to making sure this year- book is better than ever! 00 00 " Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain.
