MILLIKIN UNIVERSITY I ARCHI- TECTURE Millikin ' s small 40-acre campus is one of the most beautiful university settings in the state of Illinois. Three of the original structures, the Liberal Arts Hall, East Hall and West Hall, remain a distinct landmark and the towers of L.A. are one of the most recognizable sights in all of Decatur. The historical tradition of the campus was al- ways a major concern through periods of expansion and reconstruction. The newer buildings, the modern structures, were carefully designed so as not to detract from the feeling and tradition felt while touring this small but very lovely campus.

You can always hear curious students inquiring, " What is a Big Blue? " " What does Big Blue mean? " " A Big Blue what? " The legend of the Big Blue dates back to the 1916 Millikin football team and Dr. Carl Head. 1916 marked the first undefeated season ever for the M.U. gridiron heroes, and the only blemish on its otherwise spotless record was a season opening tie with the University of Missouri — Rolla. To publicize this outstanding display of athletic prowess. Head, according to Cal- vin E. (Fuzzy) Sutherd, " used a picture of the 1916 team and lettered up a card about 16 by 30 inches. He made several blue prints of the card to be placed downtown in the stores. On it he had lettered ' The Big Blue ' . " The catchy title became well known throughout Decatur, and Millikin athletic teams have been nicknamed the Big Blue ever since.

Millikin held that education to meet the demands of an ever increasing industrial- ized society should include both profes- sional and practical learning along with the traditional liberal arts fields. Thus made legal stipulations concerning the in- stitution he was responsible for founding. His first requirement was that this univer- sity be one " where the scientific, the practical and the industrial shall have a place of equal importance, side by side, with the literary and the classical. " He also stressed that " the policy of the school would not narrowly be ' sectarian ' and it should be conducted on a broad plane in which all will be treated alike, regardless of sect or creed. " From such visions and dreams of one man, Millikin University was established. Today, Millikin offers five undergraduate degrees in the College of Arts and Sci- ences, the Tabor School of Business and Engineering, the College of Fine Arts and the School of Nursing. Approximately 1500 students are now en- rolled in the university ' s four year pro- gram. The 1984-85 academic season wel- comed the largest freshman class in the school ' s illustrious history. The university is constantly changing and growing to meet the ever increasing de- mands of the diverse student body. Staley Library, a thoroughly modern structure, was completed in 1977-78 to replace the outdated Gorin facility. Staley currently contains not only 160,000 volumes, but also houses a media center, a writing center, audio-visual classrooms, a 24 hour study area, a working darkroom, study carols and lounges, a computer center is located in Lower L.A. 6 This Is It TABOR SCHOOL OF BUSINESS AND ENGINEERING Student getting in last minute studying in L.A.

Every year dur- ing the Christmas season, the faculty group together to serenade the students who are bogged down with final exam preparations and thoughts of purneying home for the semester break. Both men and women are eligible to at- tend cheerleading tryouts to be those se- lected to cheer the Big Blue on to athletic success. Students are also able to belong to both professional fraternities and Greek social fraternities any number of clubs and organizations and even the Big Blue pep band.

Football, the pio- neer in M.U. Inter-Collegiate Athletics, of- ficially started the day after the school opened for the very first term. Dr. Charles A. Meserve, after complaining about a great lack of " college spirit " , was responsible for not only assembling the first football roster, but also the formation of the Athletic Association. During that same winter. Professor Bailey led a squad of young men through the rigors of basketball practice in what is now the sec- ond floor of the Mueller Industrial Labora- tory. Millikin had no floor to call its own until the Old Gym was constructed to mark the opening of the 1912 season. Track and baseball were implemented in the spring of 1904, and, like the basketball team, suffered due to a lack of proper facilities. Tennis was first played in 1906. Golf and swimming appeared on the sports horizon in 1926-27, but only in a very limited capacity. Golf became an M.U. standard in 1939, but swimming was dropped from 1933 until 1970-71, when the new pool in Griswold Center opened. Women started adding to the athletic tra- dition in May, 1917 by participating in the Millikin Women ' s Invitational tennis tour- nament (now called the Dorothy McClure Memorial Tournament). However, inter- collegiate competition and regularly scheduled events did not occur for wom- en until 1970. Basketball led the women ' s sports expan- sion in 1970-71, and volleyball and track followed in 1975-76. In 1982 Millikin added three more sports for women: cross coun- try, swimming and Softball.

The series has drawn such stars as Chuck Mangione, The Point- er Sisters, Cicely Tyson and Doc Severson to name but a few. M.U. also features faculty concerts, stu- dent recitals, theatrical productions, sev- eral university choral groups, bands, an orchestra, a marching band and flag corps and one of the top jazz bands in the Unit- ed States. Most of the fine arts productions are per- formed in the Kirkland Fine Arts Center, a modern 2000-seat theatre. Kirkland also sponsors art shows in its galleries. The art work can be student, faculty, or even the work of a noted professional. Millikin has much to offer in fi ne arts for both the performer and the viewer alike.

They come from all over the United States and even foreign countries to share in the unique educational and social atmo- sphere that can be found at James Millikin University. The people that make up this university are as diverse and different as the various towns and cities they hail from, but they have the uncanny ability to pull together and strive towards a com- mon goal, and be part of a dynamic educa- tional community characterized by stu- PEOPLE dents, faculty and staff, simply as friend- ly- The human aspect is vital in international and national relations. The same holds true for Millikin. It is the warmth, the car- ing, the sharing and personal concern dis- played by students and professors, that distinguishes Millikin University and sets it apart from other colleges and universi- ties. Millikin is unique and it owes its strong individuality to its people.

Reagan stopped at Millikin in August while on the campaign trail to hold a mini- conference on agriculture. The event was organized as a typically academic forum where topic of the day centered around agribusiness. The topic chosen was very fitting as Decatur is a major Midwestern agri- cultural center. Reagan ' s speech not only touched on the agricultural issues of the day, but also involved a series of boy- hood recollections and humorous anecdotes. One such anecdote described a trip Reagan and the foot- bail squad from Eureka College made to Decatur 55 years ago to receive a 45-6 thrashing from the Milli- kin gridiron heroes. Reagan closed his speech by saying, " I thank you for your kindness and I thank you more than anything because whether you realize it or not, you are the ones that brought about this return to the America we all know and remember so well. Not the America of the doomcriers. " President Reagan Dr. J. Roger Miller and President Reagan 102 Activliies FRESHMAN CAMP Freshman listen intently 104 Activities Activities 105 HOMECOMING ' 84 Angle Sparks and Kent Dixion were crowned as the Homecoming Queen and King during the coronation ceremony on Friday night that was highlighted by a performance of the jazz band under the direction of Roger Schueler.
