Everything from WKNC ' s stereo equipment to multi- colored chairs had to be transferred to the new annex. Sehoya Harris Marc Kawanishi Student Government and Agromeck staffs worked together to move into the student center annex on their January moving day. Sehoya Harris 4 Obenina The new chancellor, Larry Monteith, and his wife, Nancy. Swayne Hall North Carolina State has seen many changes this year. A new chancellor and basketball coach moved up to replace the previous ones as they moved out. The campus itself moved outward and expanded to Centennial Campus. Even on campus, the Agromeck and other NCSU organizations moved residence to the new student center annex. Brent Smith One of the many buildings on NCSU ' s new Centennial Campus. Opening 5 On a campus as large and diverse as N.C. State ' s, there are a lot of things to do and many ways to get to them. Activities range from rockclimbing to walking a dog. If you want to move your person, you can walk, bike, drive, or ride the bus. If you want to move more than your person, it may take some muscle strain, but a few friends and a truck can always help.

Colorful leaves in Fall, the flowers blooming in Spring, and classes meeting outside in pleasant weather make everyone aware that the seasons are continuously moving and changing around them. Moving through the year Nathan Guinn Larry Dixon Jim Mahaffee Opening 9 Fun for all ages N.C. State Fair draws thousands smells like an animal farm, looks like a swarm of bees, and sounds like an ongoing party? If you guessed the North Carolina State Fair, then you ' re right. North Carolina ' s annual celebration of agriculture and people had folks of all ages flocking from all directions for the 1 0-day event in the fall of 1990. The fair had all kinds of attractions including favorites like the " dancing fountain, " the traditional merry-go-round rides, lots of games, and many animals. Any fair goer could find something to enjoy whether it was walking, eating, buying, talking, or just looking. Parents took their children to see the animals and ride the merry-go- round, boyfriends took their girlfriends to (hopefully) win a few stuffed animals, and grandparents took their grandchildren to experience the special event no one ever wants to miss. Whether you wanted to walk, eat, buy, talk, or just look; it was all there. Apparently, more people than ever wanted to have a good time this year. The attendance record from 1987 was broken in 1990 with an overwhelming crowd of 705,973 people. The fair even recognized the importance of our environment on Wednesday night, October 17. Pepsi- Cola sponsored free admission to each person who brought six empty Pespi product aluminum cans. Because many college students drink carbonated, caffeinated drinks while keeping late hours, this was an added bonus. Who could turn down a drink that came with 1 6 admission to a guaranteed fun time? Almost everyone looks forward to the N.C. State Fair. Where else could you eat such sticky caramel apples, or spend as much money attempting to win a stuffed animal for your loved one? It was laughter, anticipation, tired feet, and lots of people—Raleigh ' s own state fair had something to offer everyone. Jim Mahaffee An entirely different atmosphere surrounds the fair as the sun goes down. People of all ages love the food at the fair, especially the greasy, sugary fried dough. Jim Mahaffee 12 Student Life Student Life Jim Mahaffee Jim Mahaffee Tanya Stephens The Waltzing Waters danced to music as entertainment for this year ' s fair-goers. The heat and excitement of the fair can cause even the young to sack out by afternoon. One of the highlights of the fair is the wide variety of food: everything from egg rolls and Polish sausage to cotton candy and candy apples. and partying brought eager students to " Lesboro " winter to camp out for basketball tickets. In order to get the highly demanded tickets, students listened to WKNC for the camp out call. When the announcement was made, students had thirty minutes to prepare their groups and camping needs for the run to Reynold ' s Coliseum. Once the students arrived at the campsite on the North side of Dunn Avenue, monitors registered groups for their assigned places in line. The monitors had 35-40 groups to assign to four lines, the first 40 groups got sideline tickets. A single group, which had to have at least half of its members present at all times, could get a maximum of 14 tickets including those for guests. As the students settled into the campsite, the campers attempted to get some sleep for the long weekend ahead.. Students were given 24-60 hours to rough it on the road. The next day the partying began. The open air allowed students to drink, study, and listen to music. Sleep was hard to come by because of the cold hard ground and the festivities. Students often argued about by how much N.C. State would defeat its opponent. This year students built fires in the trash cans to ward off the chills only to see Public Safety put them out the next morning. Frequently, campers would make food runs to fast food restaurants and campus " C " stores, unless they packed a picnic lunch. As the hours passed on, the cold, tired, and hungry students hoped that the box office would open soon. At 5:30 am on the day of the sales, the students had to stand in line at the window with their All Campus Cards in hand and wait until distribution began at 7:00 am. At last, tickets were given to awaiting campers. Then the waiting was over, and it was time for students to attend the gameand prepare for the next long wait. What dedication! Brent Smith Displaying their dismay for being last in line, Line 4-Group 33 sticks out the wait. Brent Smith 14 Student Life Listening to some tunes, this camper puts in some study time.

Delta Sigma Phi presents the United Way with a $9,000 donation. Down the hatch! This party-goer came prepared. Brent Smith Brent Smith Brent Smith 16 Student Life United Way benefits from settling down in the spring semester, most students realize just how many (or maybe how many too many) hours they have signed up for. Things may look bleak, but students sigh, " ...if I can just hold on for a week and a half, everything will be all right. " The anticipation of the Delta Sigma Phi Lawn Party, a United Way fundraiser, is more intense than for any other party of the year. In fact, this year students came from many different universities in the state, including some from the coast, to participate in the FUNd raising. Some students found that they even got up a little earlier than usual that Saturday to get ready. However, it all seems worthwhile once the bands start playing and the refreshments start to, well...refresh. This year ' s party began rocking about noon and continued longer than any normal person could possibly last. Although the skies were overcast and there were sprinkles of rain, the crowd seemed to have more fun than a Club MTV cameraman. And after the funky-romantic- Motown-obnoxious-loud music of Liquid Pleasure and the progressive music of Dreams So Real, you couldn ' t help but have fun. One of the high points of the afternoon was the donation ceremony in which the brothers of Delta Sigma Phi presented the United Way with a check for about $9,000 and a promise of more to come. With that presentation, as if nature had declared that now this party was officially good, the clouds broke and the sun shone. The masses partied hardier and when the people could party no longer, they went home. Everyone was checked to make sure that they were safe to drive, because Delta Sigma Phi wanted to make sure that they would be back for the even larger lawn party fundraiser next year.• lawn PARTY Alcohol abuse? No, proper party etiquette states that after dousing one ' s companion, one must apologize by dousing one ' s self. Chris Hondros A new way of seeing things at the Lawn Party. Chris Hondros Student Life 17 College fashion Trends change faster than a Carl Lewis sprint If one looks in the dictionary, he or she would find fashion defined something like this: the current style, prevailing custom or mode of dress, speech, manners, shape, make and conduct as established by the dominsate section of society or the leaders in the fields of art and literature. So knowing that definition and the ways of the industrial world, one could easily say that fashion moves from one trend to another quicker than the blink of an eye. Most college students have limited budgets, therefore, they can only admire the real world ' s high fashion in magazines. But students are the movers and shakers of tomorrow and this fact makes their ideas of fashion tomorrow ' s trends. Here are the fashions of the 1990-1991 school year captured in living color and surreal black and white so 20 years from now our children can laugh at us and say " you used to dress like that?! " • Marc Kawanishi Purple goes with Debbie Mathis as well as individual style goes with the School of Design campus. Near D.H. Hill Library, Jean Bragassi shows how heart-stopping red can be.

Tanya Stephens shows off her good taste in clothing near the design school. Sorry guys, she ' s engaged. Of lines and shadows? Yes and beautiful too. Debbie Mathis ' silhouette should never go out of fashion. Marc Kawanishi (3) 20 Student Life Swayne Hall The design school provides many wonderful places for model Tanya Stephens to show her best side. Light and colorful, Debbie Mathis ' dress sets the mood to swing into spring. Classes take a back seat. Add-ons are often keen. For example, belts and suspenders add a little pizzazz to wardrobes. Marc Kawanishi Student Life 23 Officer Blackwell is the Mounted division ' s only full time officer. Officer Blackwell and Support Staff member McCray cover most of NCSU ' s campus during their workday. 24 Student Life Giving directions is one of Officer Blackwell ' s many duties while patrolling the campus. throughbreds the difference for NCSU ' s police Brent Smith (3) a warm spring day and you ' ve decided to take a load off for the afternoon. While relaxing on Tucker beach, you hear a sound that has been absent from the campus for almost a year: click-clock, click- clock. A shadow falls not far from you as horse and rider discreetly pass by. While on NCSU campus, you cannot help but notice a mounted public safety officer. Mounted officers have been a part of Public Safety since 1984. Their main purposes are routine patrol of NCSU ' s main campus, Centennial campus as well as Carter-Finley stadium. Like other public safety officers, mounted officers can respond to calls for assistance anywhere on campus. If not accompanied by another mounted officer, the officer isn ' t allowed to leave his her mount to respond to disturbances within the residence halls. Mounted officers are always present at any large outdoor event held by NCSU. Surprisingly the mounted officers are great for public relations. Some officers observe that students on campus are more friendly towards the mounted officers than the officers in the patrol cars. The students are more comfortable approaching a mounted officer than approaching other officers. The mounted officers use their positive image to make presentations to special groups interested in the duties of Public Safety. The mounted officer division consists of five horses, one full-time officer, five part-time auxillary officers and four part-time support staff members. The horses have been donated to the university by supporters. All are throughbreds and in excellent condition. The horses are trained by the officers to become accustom to the noices and people on campus. The process takes a year to complete. If all goes well, a horse becomes a permanant member of the mounted officer division and is kept at a barn with the other horses known as Unit five. The duties of the full- time officer and the auxillary officers are the same as other public safety officers. The support staff members, however, are not actual members of Public Safety. They are present to assist other officers any way possible when needed. Due to the presence of the mounted officers, there has been a significant improvement in Public Safety ' s ability to control large crowds. The number of car break-ins during football games has dropped significantly. Although young, the mounted officer division has definitely made a mark at NCSU. You cannot help but notice a mounted public safety officer. Student Life 25 wolfstock The temp erature was falling on a Sunday evening as Bill Lagarde, a senior in Zoology, stood on his ice chest to get a " heavenly view " of Fishbone, the headline band for this year ' s Wolfstock celebration. But the cooler evening temperature, 10 degrees down from the day ' s high of 86, foreshadowed the events to come. Around 7,000 area students participated in the annual event, up 2,000 from last year ' s event. Folks took part in the usual alcohol drinking, pizza eating, picture taking, thong wearing, and sunburn getting. Perhaps some of the most unusual and newest things were the temporary tattoos which many people tried. But nobody forgot about the music. The bands, which included Mr. Potato Head, Information Society, Sidewinder and of course, Fishbone, put on a fine performances. Carl Jones, a visitor from Minneapolis, Minnesota and his friend Cheryl Brown, a senior in Industrial Engineering, started a trend for watching the bands by standing on Jones ' ice chest. Before long many were doing the same. The music-hungry crowd grew in size and enthusiasm as each band played. When Fishbone took the stage the dancing was at a peak. " The majority of the people had a fun eight hours, " said Danny Kris, Wolfstock co-chairman. However, shortly after Fishbone ' s third song, " Public Safety simply shut the show off " according to Scott Walston, the Wolfstock Bands co-chairman. " Folks were trying to get over the fence " near the front of the stage, said Wolfstock treasurer David Forrest. " There were better ways it could have been handled, " he said. Public Safety Sergeant G. Person refused to comment about the incident shortly after the show. However, according to Kris, " Public Safety thought it (the pushing near the fence) endangered students. " Fishbone lead singer Christopher Gordon Dowd sadly stated to the crowd as he left, " We love you but some people don ' t.

Tanya Stephen; Friendly vendors displayed their work for everyone to enjoy. anya Stephens month of April rolled around with speed, and with it came spring fever and the chance to blow off some steam at Spring Fest. The festival is an annual event held by the School of Design. It gives the Design students a breather away from studio while allowing other students and people from the area to enjoy the festivities. Held beside Brooks Hall and beside Gold Residence Hall, Spring Fest offers the opportunity to see samples of paintings, sculptures, photographs and many other items created by 30 Student Life Design students. The festival is also a chance to celebrate spring with vivacious food, music, crafts, and people. Despite the low turn-out, the gray clouds, and the band playing under the dark cover of a building, a great time was had by all who attended. The people that attended were good to be around. The booths that were set up selling jewelry, tee- shirts, and various kinds of pottery lent color to the festival. Greg and Chuck Samuels entertained spectators with their talented juggling acts. Folks enjoying Spring Fest didn ' t go hungry, either. A stand was set up selling hot dogs, sausages, french fries and nachos. Surely some were disappointed when lead band " Satellite Boyfriend " cancelled because of weather, but at least several other bands played for the crowd despite the threat of rain. J. Thomas Regan, Dean of the School of Design said he thought the few turned out because " it rained. " Ironically, though, most who attended went home with dry shirts on their backs David Poole gazes out over the festivities.

If there is some sport you ' ve always wanted to participate in, then NCSU club sports could be the answer. Whether your skills or interests are in aikido, hockey, or waterskiing, club sports offers something for you. The NCSU Aikido club is in its first year of activity at State. The club focuses on training in the martial art of aikido, a purely defensive form of fighting. Sensei Jeanie Congden guides the club members through two club meetings each week. The Aikido Club, like others, is open to anyone interested. If instead you prefer to get wet while having fun, the Water Ski Club may be your cup of tea, er, water. The team has been together for over ten years, and for the last six has competed in the Southern Atlantic Conference against schools like ECU, Clemson, and UNC. While competition is certainly emphasized, their main goal is to encourage waterskiing for all levels. Other club sports besides aikido and waterskiing include lacrosse, ultimate frisbee, and snowskiing. They compete on intercollegiate to national levels, but most clubs ' basic goal is to encourage people to participate and learn. Wet or dry, hot or cold, NCSU club sports offer something for everyone.

Todd Bennett Nigel Moritz Todd Bennett Student Life 37 students, there would be no Stewart Theatre. Not only are students the primary patrons of the theater, they are also the people that make the theater happen. Ever since the theater ' s inception, students have been an integral part of its operation. Students have been everything from ushers to house managers to sound operators and set designers. They have a hand in every show that comes to the theater. You see them taking tickets, passing out programs, dimming the lights and working the spotlight for all your favorite shows and performers. Students can be found behind the scenes running the shows and making sure everything runs smoothly. These folks do get paid; however most say they work out of their love of the theater and because of the opportunity to grow personally. As an usher, one interacts with a variety of people at every show. In addition, ushers get to watch some of the work that goes on prior to the rise of the curtains. Student technical supervisors (T1 ' s) work closely with the performers, ushers and technical crew making sure that everyone is communicating and everything is running smoothly. The " tech crew " ensures everything is perfect — from running the lights and sound to setting up the stage. After many days of preparation, the theater ' s doors are ready to open for yet another production. And thanks to those students who are " just doin ' their jobs, " we can look forward to many more successful performances from Stewart Theatre.• Stewart Theatre as seen from the catwalks.

" -Spencer Tracy If you speak to an actor or crew member from Thompson Theater, you will hear nothing but praise. Gurdine Bliss, working on her master ' s degree here at NCSU, said that " students, particulary those working backstage, receive the best training I ' ve seen anywhere. " She should know: Bliss has been in over eighty productions at Thompson and elsewhere. She in fact performed in Thompson ' s very first production, Medea, and had the opportunity to watch Thompson Gymnasium transform into Thompson Theater. Bliss praised the directors for their respect of every single person working underneath Thompson ' s roof. The directors demand respect for the crew members from day one, and according to Bliss, that is rare indeed in the world of theater. Students working for Thompson are taught love for and dedication to their craft, and learn discipline and respect. Theater and education meet underneath Thompson ' s roof, and when that combines with Spencer Tracy ' s advice, magic happens.• Student Life 43 was a Twin Peaks-esque air about the Sept. 27 - Oct. 6 production of Ring Around The Moon by Thompson Theater.

The performer then heads upstairs to the wizard John and his wigs. For this production, some elaborate coiffeurs were required. After bobby pins, bass gospel singing, and kind words, the actor returns downstairs to get into costume. Up until this point, the actors have been warm, open, and positively giddy with excitement. But with the donning of costumes, something changed in the air. People became quiet and distant. The process of getting into character had begun somewhere deep inside these people, and nothing must interrupt their concentration. Life 45 greek week FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES DONATE PROFITS FROM WEEK OF FUN worth of fun and charity closed in a semi- formal ceremony Sunday night as 1,600 Greeks tallied up the results of annual Greek Week events. The true winners were not the Greeks, though. The scores of handicapped North Carolinians who receive help through the services of the Easter Seals program were the real winners. The N.C. chapter gained about $39,000 raised by the campus sororities and fraternities during the week. Pi Kappa Phi fraternity and Chi Omega sorority each won a trophy and bragging rights among the Greeks for the coming year as overall winners in the various competitive events. " We were so glad we could have a fun, competitive event and still have it go for a good cause " said Laura Rennie, coordinator for the five- kilometer walk-a-thon. The walk-a-thon, included in the schedule for the first time, was the big event of the week. Each group solicited sponsors for the walk to raise the $39,000 for Easter Seals. Also to help raise money, the Greeks sponsored a lip-synch contest held at the Showcase, a newly opened club in Raleigh. Groups faked their favorite songs to earn over $1,500 for the cause. Other Greek Week competitions included dodge ball, tug-o-war, a- man volleyball, tricycle races and a triathalon. Members from 27 fraternities and sororities participated in these events. At the semi-formal ceremony, held at the North Raleigh Shriners Club, trophies were presented to Greek Week winners. The Stegmonds, a local rock band, played for the party that followed. In the past, the ceremony was held at the Fraternity commons, but this year organizers chose to hold a more dignified event that could not be cancelled because of rain.• Maida Simond launches a balloon during the Space Invaders game.

Students cheer for the our troops in the Gulf. 48 Student Life spring at North Carolina State University is a time of breaking free. It is a chance to lose that bad relationship or go to Pullen Park to cure the inevitable fever. This spring was different than the past fifteen year ' s since the War in the Gulf weighed heavy on everyone ' s mind as a national crisis. Students, therefore, were forced to be in touch with their own brand of political correctness. Activism reached an all-time high on campus. Without denigrating the individual causes, protests seemed to become routine events. The biggest protest of the year was a community-wide die-in which included hundreds of students from the University of North Carolina system and Raleigh based colleges and took place on the Brickyard. It was held just two days after the United Nation ' s deadline for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to withdraw all the troops occupying Kuwait. Public safety estimated the crowd to be around 700. Deeply rooted emotions about the United State ' s military actions against Iraq filled the hearts of all the participants. Local media recorded the rage, debates and arguments broke out everywhere. " I do believe these (war) protesters have a right to express their opinions " stated Kevin Carter, who planned the rally. The protest started around noon with a small number of on-lookers. During the middle stages the entire Brickyard was filled and it ended shortly before sunset with only the die hard protesters. Both sides got in their say and walked away without i ncident. • Protesters walk over the bodies showing support for the troops during the die-in. Peace lovers hold hands just prior to the actual die-in. Student Life 49 Right: Students ' opposing points of view often spurred arguments. Some protesters want the troops back home.

Throughout the year, the team practiced for four hours a week and participated in numerous tournaments. On November 2nd and 3rd, they won the Terrapin Invitational College Bowl Tournament at the University of Maryland. They placed third in the ACU-I Region V tournament at the University of Kentucky. On March 23rd and 24th, they won the Duke Tournament of Fools. The team also placed fourth in the ACF National Tournament in Knoxville and second in the Wahoo War of the Minds at the University of Virginia. The team also attended tournaments at Georgia Tech, MIT and Berry College in Rome, Georgia. The NCSU team hosted two tournaments, Wessell Mania and the Southeastern Invitational Tournament. In late February, they sponsored an intramural competition on campus. The Spring Challenge gave students a chance to experience the excitement of college bowl. The library staff assisted with the event. About thirteen people participated on the College Bowl team. They covered a wide range of subjects. Most of the questions were about history and literature, and other topics included current events, sports, science, general knowledge and sometimes even spelling. Claxton Graham said, " As a player, I ' ve learned a lot of information about a variety of subjects, and as chariman of the committe, I ' ve learned to be an effective Brent Smith (3) 52 Student Life Student Life 53 music department North Carolina State University, students have a variety of different extracurricular activities with which to involve themselves. The Music Department alone offers eight different groups from which to choose, ranging from improving vocal talents to advancing instrumental abilities. Director of Music, Dr. Ronald Toering, stated " The two goals of musical performance are to explore quality literature and to perform this literature at the highest possible level. " The unique aspect of N. C. State ' s Music Department is the fact that there is no music major. Students in the department can belong to Mu Beta Psi National Honorary Fraternity, which is for non-music majors. This close-knit group of people share a common interest in music. Students can easily get involved in the department by auditioning for the group of their choice. The Marching Band entertains audiences during the fall at home football games. The band also travels to some away games, including this year ' s All-American Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama. For those who do not have the time to devote to the marching band, the Rehearsal Band gives a chance to keep in practice without the pressure of performing. In the spring, there are four instrumental bands available to students: Symphonic Band, Fanfare Band, Jazz Band, and British Brass Band. Two concert orchestras add to the students ' choices. For those interested in singing, Vocal Techniques offers a chance to learn basic instruction and valuable tips on singing correctly. University Choir is open to men and women who want to explore different musical styles, whereas the New Horizons Choir, a gospel choir, is open to those who enjoy insprirational music.

Chatting with friends, playing Dungeons and Dragons®, and shooting pool in Bragaw are just a few of the distractions accessible in the residence halls. If you want to get off campus, Hillsborough Street is just a short walk away. From Open-Mic Night at the Five-0, to boogying at Barry ' s, to catching a drink at the Lookout, Hillsborough Street offers something for every taste.

Right: Chancellor Monteith greets a student at the graduation reception he held at his home. Chancellor Monteith interacts with parents and soon to be graduates at his graduation reception. Academics Chris Hondros (4) Chancellor Larry K. Monteith knows a great deal about N.C. State, both from undergraduate and professional angles. He has seen many changes over the years. In 1960, after four years in the Navy, Monteith received his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from NCSU. He then earned both his master ' s and doctoral degrees from Duke University. In 1968, Monteith returned to NCSU to teach engineering. He moved up to associate professor, full professor, department head and eventually dean. He served as the dean of engineering for 11 years. " I never pictured myself as a chancellor, " he said. " I really enjoyed my position over in engineering. I figured that would have been the highest administrative position I would take. " Going into his twenty-third year serving the university, Monteith says that he is proud to see that the " overall quality of the student body–versus when I was an undergraduate here–has been a continuing improvement. " Today, he says the number of freshmen entering NCSU who were in the upper 10% of their graduating classes is growing. Monteith also says that it is the quality of the faculty and staff as well as our facilities which help " create a first- rate educational environment. " As chancellor, Monteith says he now spends probably 60% of his time off campus representing the university. " To most people, I am not known as Larry K. Monteith the person, but rather I am the Chancellor. I ' m the university ' s representative. Through me, people see the university. " He keeps busy participating in campus events and cultural activities, travelling, giving speeches and working on fundraising. He says he finds it difficult to spend much time alone with his wife Nancy or doing other things he enjoys. " She ' s working now and I sometimes am busy on weekends. But we spend our Sundays together. " An avid golfer, he says, " I ' ve only golfed once this year and only five times last year. I used to play every Saturday. " When they do have time, he and Nancy enjoy shopping, spending time outdoors and visiting their children and grandchildren. Living in the Chancellor ' s Residence has been a big change for the Monteiths. " This is the first house I ' ve ever owned, " he said. His family lived in their previous home for 20 years with their three children, two sons and a daughter. " In my other home, I used to do my own yardwork. But this yard is too large, we have six acres now. " Monteith says his biggest personal satisfaction this year was the birth of his second grandson last July. Another grandchild is due this summer. • I never myself as pictured chancellor Academics 63 on the move. year after former Chancellor Bruce Poulton resigned and former men ' s basketball coach Jim Valvano was fired, the university is moving back into a positive light. " This has been a year of transition for the university in terms of administration, " says Tom Stafford, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Indeed, the university has changes from the of new staff members to the confrontation of controversial is- sues. These transitions have been only part of what has kept Stafford and Student Affairs busy this year. Student Affairs has adopted sexism, racism and homophobia as themes to address. " I feel really good about this project even though we haven ' t solved the We have worked together to accomplish a level of concern and awareness at this university. " Stafford has also been involved in the initial research and policy discussions on the newly revised Student Code of Conduct. He says that the new Code will reinforce due process and provide more consistency. " However the big challenge right now is with the significant amount of academic misconduct. I feel that not enough faculty emphasize academic honesty. " Stafford believes that it is necessary to encourage the faculty to take an active interest in students on a more per- sonal level. Of his work at N.C. State, Stafford says, " It was a matter of being in the right place at the right time. " He enjoys the variety in his daily routine: one day he will be meeting with the Board of Trustees, the next with student leaders, another with parents. But, reflecting on the rewards of his position, Stafford says " It ' s students who make the job so excit- ing. " His department motto is " Students first. " And when there are student activities such a Parents ' Day, athletic events, lectures and Brickyard Stafford can be seen mingling with students. He concerns himself primarily with students who come into this university and feel lost because it is so large and diverse. " If students don ' t participate in some of these activities, they miss a significant part of the college life. " Despite an busy schedule, Stafford finds time for an aerobics class with faculty and staff members and can often be seen in Gymnasium working out or running on the indoor track. Working with members of the university at all levels, from students to faculty to parents to administrators, Stafford and his staff continue to keep things progressing smoothly to a brighter future.

Academics 65 Vice more st an excellent have chance to " It is an " enormously busy " job acting in an interim position, just ask Dr. Franklin D. Hart. The one time vice chancellor for research now is filling the shoes of former Provost Nash B. Winstead, who retired in September after 15 years of service. As N.C. State ' s number two administrator, Hart is responsible for the academic programs of the university and all curricula and faculty personnel matters. An advocate for an intense, across-the- board examination of our curriculum, Hart favors a " revolutionary versus an evolutionary approach " to addressing problems. He believes that the low number of students who complete their undergraduate degrees in four years shows that NCSU ' s current system needs to be more efficient. The overall academic structure of the university needs to be evaluated, Hart says. And Hart would know what the undergraduate program is like at NCSU: He came to the university in 1955 as a freshman and received his bachelor ' s, master ' s and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering in 1959, 1961 and 1964 respectively. He feels that more of today ' s students could do extremely well with heavier loads but they don ' t have enough confidence. " There used to be an enhanced standard to get into the university. It filtered out students who wouldn ' t be successful. " He says that there is a need to get rid of the 40s and 50s attitude: " Look to your left, look to your right...only one out of three undergraduates will graduate from this university. " Hart would like to see the university bring back some of that level of difficulty in order to boost the university ' s integrity. " We believe that more students have an excellent chance to succeed. However, a lot of that negative attitude still prevails. I hope that we can change it. " • Samantha Adriance 66 Academics According to Harold B. Hopfenberg, the Executive Assistant to the Chancellor, N.C. State can be divided into three broad areas: Finance and Business is the skeleton which supports the rest of the university, the Chancellor and the Provost and Vice Chancellor are the brain and nervous system, and the rest of the Holladay Hall administrators make up the sensory system, dealing with university and the population at large. Hopfenberg places himself in the last category, along with the in Development, Alumni, Student Affairs, Extension and Public Service, University and so on. Hopfenberg, a Camille Dreyfus of Chemical Engineering and one-time NCSU Athletic Director, believes " the 90 ' s will be the decade of opportunity for NCSU. " With the Century II expansion campaign in motion, NCSU is already " opening new doors " in engineering, teaching, research, and extension. One would think that working to expand the university, its responsibilities, and its relationships would leave Hopfenberg no time to be a professor, lecturer, or anything else. Not a chance. " First I ' m an educator, a scholar, and a researcher, " he said. " My job provides an opportunity in leadership and contact with students on a day to day, minute to minute basis.

Do you know where your students are? " phone call? Our resident parent figure, Albert B. Lanier, Jr., the Vice Chancellor for University Relations, gets all the calls about NCSU ' s relations with its students, the community, the legislature, and the media. The work varies from day to day, but there is one constant: " We solve problems, " says Lanier. Lanier believes this is " our decade " here at NCSU. From the opening of the centennial campus and the expansion of the College of Textiles to the university ' s first major partnership with an industry, University Relations has seen a lot of progress recently. An ex-paratrooper and graduate from NCSU in Agricultural Education, Lanier himself has done a lot of moving on during his life. He is quick to advise students not to become locked into thinking " This is what I have to do for the rest of my life. I never worked in the field in which I got my degree. This is the launching pad for how far you go and how fast you move. This is the place where students can find themselves. " Where we take it from here is up to us.• " This is the launching pad for how far you go and how fast you move.

Kanipe, Jr. is a product of the nourishment, encouragement, and opportunity N.C. State provided 30 years ago. And thanks to him, his staff, and the more than 1000 volunteers who make up the Boards of Directors for university organizations, the quality of NCSU ' s programs is being upheld. Said Kanipe, " Every day I ' m here to continue the legacy so that future generations can have the same education and benefits that I did. " Kanipe has adopted for his administration the theme of the Century II Campaign for the " enrichment and expansion " of Out of all the people at N.C. State, the person whose life has been made the most difficult by the recent budget cuts is probably George Worsley, Vice Chancellor for Finance and Business. That ' s a fair judgment considering his responsibilities encompass all of NCSU ' s financial operations including parking, construction, the statewide Agricultural Extension service, NCSU Bookstores, University Graphics, university laundry, and inspection of university labs. The state ' s cut of $21 million from its $238 million contribution to NCSU ' s NCSU: " Opening new doors. " For Kanipe that means opening doors in the development of knowledge, technology, growth, and opportunity while providing the resources that will balance the charge to students for education and the cost of providing it. All this so that NCSU can continue to be the cornerstone of educational access for the citizens of North Carolina. ' I have a profound belief in NCSU to improve the quality of life for the people it serves and for the economy of the nation, " Kanipe said. " My job is a stewardship opportunity to continue to contribute in some small way to the work this university does. " • combined $465 million a year budget have complicated university operations and laid out some tough work for Finance and Business. Despite the problems caused by the cuts, the university is moving on. The constant flow of students, faculty, ideas, and research makes NCSU a dynamic, strong community. " It ' s hard to keep a university down, " said Worsley, and he is helping provide the services needed to run the university smoothly.

Michael When asked about her daily routine as Dean of the College of Education and Psychology, Dr. Joan J. Michael admits that the biggest part of it is keeping the calendar straight because " everyone wants to see the Dean. " Dr. Michael ' s busy day consists of keeping up with appointments with many people from businesses, industries, and public schools, all directly connected to the College ' s degree programs, as well as generally overseeing the work being done in the offices of the College. Dr. Michael has seen the college progress remarkable in the the two years she has been at N.C. State. " We ' re moving onward to becoming much more technologically oriented than we used to be. " This is beneficial to everyone involved in the College and Dr. Michael assures that the progression will continue. " We ' ve made giant strides just in the last two years. I expect that we are going to make even more. " Dr. Michael is proud to say that the students in the College of Education and Psychology are among the best. The College ' s freshmen have the highest high school GPAs in the university, and Dr. Michael observes that new students today arrive knowing much more about the world around them than new students of five years ago. She has high expectations of her students, and particularly she " would like all the students to be very sensitive to social issues. " She believes the College is training students to go out into the public sector to make a difference, so a special awareness of the issues is important. Dr. Michael meets students sometimes in the classes themselves to listen to their concerns and to know what kind of problems they face. For Dr. Michael, this is both essential and gratifying: " I like meeting the students. They ' re the best part of the job. " • Dean of Education and Psychology " I like meeting the students. They ' re the best part of the job. " 70 Academics Nick Glatkauskas Terrence M. Curtin, Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine, goes to work every day with two huge responsibilities. One is his responsibility to those who work at and attend the vet school, to University Administration, and the citizens of the state who support and are served by the College. The other is for the College itself, its employees and its students— " I ' m responsible for these people. If somebody makes a mistake, I cover for them, " he says, smiling. His job as dean is to " provide resources and sources to run the school and to monitor th eir judicious use. " He has adopted two theories: things never stay the same very long, and the more things change, the more they stay the same. And Curtin has seen many changes in the vet school. " When I first came here, I had a secretary and me. Now 1,200 people come in. " Curtin went from spending money on a small budget to managing a budget of $24 million plus $67 million in gifts, grants, research contracts. The scho ol has been growing steadily since its establishment, and even now expansion of the campus into Pylon Industrial Park across Hillsborough Street is being negotiated. The Dean believes that even in the face of the recent budget cuts, the school will continue to grow at least ten years into the future.° terrence curtin " Things never stay the same for very long. " Academics 71 One of the major progressions in the School of Design, according to Dean J. Thomas Regan, is one that has an important affect on the whole College. " One of the things that we ' ve been doing is to establish clear, predictable means of communication between the office of the Dean, students of the School and faculty and staff. " Dean Regan observes how important this is to everyone involved, especially students who, above all, have the most personal ties with problems that occur within the system. Dean Regan, along with other members of the faculty, has established all of the School ' s meetings, where once a month anyone who has concerns can gather together and have an opportunity to speak their minds about things such as the nature of a course that is taught, why things aren ' t working and making situations better, and even how students can get involved in the search for new faculty. Dean Regan emphasizes the importance of such " idea meetings " in consistently being aware of issues that concern the College and the running of it. Dean Regan also noted how essential it is that the public outside of the School know about the work of the Design students. " Practicing professionals in our fields don ' t know the high quality of work that is happening within the School through any kind of publication. We ' ll change that. " He assures that a publication of all students ' works will become a reality, feeling the necessity for the excellence of the works produced to be acknowledged in the public sphere where all students will one day be. In his thoughts about the students, Dean Regan feels they are in very unique surroundings and face challenges that no other students at NC SU face. " The students from the first day are confronted with the same type of intellectual and operational issues that the practicing professional in the field is confronted with. " He commented that as they are working on projects from the first semester to the last, " they are always engaged, " so both the Design students and the School itself make up an exclusive component of NCSU. fields don ' t know the high quality of work that is happening within the School. . °We ' ll change that. " in our Dean of Design School 72 Academics Nick Glatkauskas Nick Glatkauskas Dr. James K. Ferrell, Dean of the College of Engineering, deals with one of the largest engineering schools in North Carolina, with approximately 7200 students and 250 staff members. As well as it being the largest College of Engineering, Dr. Ferrell feels it is also the best. " I would like the students to know that they ' re in one of the top engineering schools in the world. " He said that after the School went through an evaluation comparing the NCSU College of Engineering to other engineering schools in the country, NCSU ' s was found to be in the top 20, being ranked at number six in the number of Bachelor of Science degrees in engineering awarded to students, number three in the amount of women who graduate with an engineering degree and 19th in research. Dr. Ferrell has obvious reasons to be proud of such an established Col lege . The College of Engineering has progressed in a number of ways. Dr. Ferrell noted that presently the graduate school enrollment has tripled and that the quality of undergraduates has greatly improved. One of the biggest steps the College has made is by moving on towards the Centennial Campus where graduate research will take place and grow. This is one of the most exciting progressions Dr. Ferrell has to look forward to, and he assures " that ' s where all the action is going to be. " And though he enjoys his involvement with these projects, he misses the interaction he had with students when he taught. Dr. Ferrell began teaching chemical engineering in 1961, moving on to becoming the head of the department, associate Dean and has been Dean for the College of Engineering at NCSU for two years. After such a long and fulfilling career, Dr. Ferrell will retire next year, so we wish him good luck: he deserves it! " I would like students to know that they ' re in one of the top engineering schools in the world. " James K. Ferrell Interim Dean of Engineering Academics 73 L. Whitten Like liquid over a bunsen burner, the N.C. State College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences is aboil with activity, and Dean Jerry L. Whitten is heartily keeping pace. In his own words, " I work hard and play hard. And I ' m demanding when I have to be. " In his second year as dean, Whitten says of himself and his department, " We strive to provide high quality instructional programs for NCSU students. " And sure enough, Whitten works every day with people and budgets to set priorities for teaching and research. Among the many changes within the five departments of the College is a move toward putting the best faculty Brent Smith in the introductory courses. Also, the lecture courses are becoming a more active part of the students ' education, as faculty increase their use of study sessions. And more and more, the College is encouraging students to get hands-on experience through research. Besides his administrative duties, Dean Whitten carries out a research program developing theories on molecule and solid surface interaction. The research enables him to keep in contact with students and with activities of his College. His intensity and his friendly and outgoing nature help him accomplish his tasks. Dean of Physical and Mathematical Sciences " We strive high quality programs students. " to provide instructional for NCSU 74 Academics Dr. Debra W. Stewart, Dean of the Graduate School, has seen many transformations occur with the graduate program in her three years as Dean, all moving on toward a brighter future for the school. " When I think of the future of graduate education at NCSU, I think we ' re clearly moving toward a point in time when NCSU will be looked upon as a center for excellence graduate education. Dr. Stewart pointed ou that one of the change that has affected th school is in the studen research itself. It has moved away from the traditional way of conducting research on an individual level to becoming a team effort in which students now have the opportunity to co-publish and be co- authors of papers with their peers and with members of the faculty. Dr. Stewart said that with the problems that need to be solved, the complexities that come with them can no longer be investigated by a single researcher and that it takes a more complex research team in order to answer questions that arise. Team work can also have a lasting effect on the way the student will function in the work place, and in " industry, you have to work as a team to be effective. " Dr. Stewart is confident saying the experience that the Graduate School offers is extremely beneficial for the future of its students. As well as having progressed in graduate research, Dr. Stewart and the faculty of the Graduate School have " become increasingly aware of the need to be very pro-active in our discussion of the ethical underpinning of the research enterprise. " She feels that it is evident that there are some people in the larger community who are not confident in universities. responsibility " to handle themselves, " and that it is the Graduate School ' s task to " train our students and create opportunities for discussion with our students about the ethical underpinning in research, and the values and norms in the research enterprise. " Dr. Stewart said one way in which this has been undertaken is with " The Colloquium on Ethics in Graduate Education, " which has been meeting on the second Wednesday of every month for the past couple of years to discuss a variety of topics that relate to the subject. She feels that with the progressions that have taken place, the Graduate School has been looking for and finding solutions to some of the pressures on graduate education and how it needs to positions itself to move forward. " We have a bit to go before we are identified institutionally as a center for excellence in graduate education, " she says, but it certainly looks like Dr. Stewart and the rest of the faculty are taking the Graduate School along that path. 64 . .NCSU will be looked upon as a center for excellence in graduate education. " Debra W. Stewart Dean of Graduate School Nick Glatkauskas Academics 75 Robert A. Barnhardt Dean of Textiles The College of Textiles has moved on in a big way, literally. If you ' ve seen the Centennial Campus you know its quite an impressive place to move on to and according to Dr. Robert A. Barnhardt, Dean of the College, it certainly has its advantages. There is about 40% more space than when the college was based at Nelson Hall, and Dr. Barnhardt feels that with so much more room, there are far more opportunities for program growth and expansion and the allowance of better facilities for graduate and faculty research. " From a facility perspective, we ' re as excited as we can be, " he says. Another positive move the Centennial Campus has provided is in way of the students themselves. Dr. Barnhardt has noticed how much more he sees them every day than he did before which, he says, he really enjoys because there is more and better student interaction, an important aspect for the College. One of the most important parts of Dr. Barnhardt ' s day is generally touching base with all the people that report to him. " This says that I can keep my fingers on the pulse of what ' s happening within the College, and I am able to discover problems and get to them quickly. " Another essential aspect of Dr. Barnhardt ' s routine is writing a daily summary of what has been accomplished; " whether it ' s been a ' three ' day or a `ten ' day. " He feels that by doing so helps him understand what ' s more fun to do and what he needs to do more of, a difficult task when dealing with one of the largest College of Textiles in the Western world. The accomplishments are evident. For example, so far the placements in the job world with a degree in textiles from NCSU have been 95%. Dr. Barnhardt notes that the textile industry is a global in dustry and with a new overseas program which started just this year, a select amount of lucky students can now combine language with textiles and acquire experience in another country. He confidently assures that NCSU ' s College of Textiles is the best there is, largely to do with the faculty it has, and it shows: " We ' re very proud of this College. " proud " We ' re Nick Glatkauskas 76 Academics D.F. Bateman, Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, is dedicated to his job. However, you won ' t see him on campus much. Seem a contradiction? On the contrary. Almost half of his deanly activities are off-campus because education through outreach is the heart of the Agriculture and Life Sciences program. While the College instru cts nearly 4000 students within its Agricultural Institute and Baccalaureate and Graduate programs, it reaches even more people through the Agricultural Research Service and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service. In order to effectively oversee these statewide organizations and the responsibilities that accompany them, Bateman has the help of an assistant dean and three associate deans, one attending to each aspect of the school: research, Nick Glatkauskas academics, and extension. Bateman was in the NCSU undergraduate program in Natural Science and Botany and in the graduate program at Cornell in Plant Pathology. He went on to teach at Cornell for 23 years, became a department chairman and held a research position. He was also director of the N.C. Agricultural Research Service for five years. With this background, Bateman is well versed in the strengths, the weaknesses, and the potential in agriculture and life sciences. Thus he has extensive goals for NCSU ' s program. " I ' m looking with a much broader focus at agriculture, " he says. " I ' m aiming to provide an appropriate environment for students, to serve the state, and provide the specific disciplines to provide all that.

He feels that it is important to keep close ties with the students to emphasize how essential it is to play a strong role in the big world they will and he meets with student leaders at least once a semester to develop than what goes new projects that classroom. will keep student interest and encourage the importance of their role. Dr. Toole offers some wise words: " I would encourage that students get more and more involved in public service so that they will be respectable leaders in society in the future, and as leaders in society, they will be called upon to do something to strengthen it. " Dr. Toole ' s hectic day includes touching base with other faculty Nick Glatkauskas William B.

He sees them as the most energetic, outstanding instuctors of the highest quality the College of Humanities and Social Sciences could possibly have. It is largely due to them that the School receives the best students enrolling and from there the " obligation is to teach and to teach well " which all the faculty of the College certainly do. on Dr. Toole knows the importance of a good instructor student relationship and that what the student learns should be a part of the rest of their lives. " I believe very strongly that there is nothing more important in a university than what goes on in the classroom, and our primary goal is to do our best to make opportunities and to see to it that our students feel that their college education is a lifelong education.

In answer to that concern, the department is working to find new methods for maintaining the safety of U.S. manufacturing while keeping the surroundings for recreational tourism. Dean of the College, Larry W. Tombaugh, says, " My job is to make Samantha Adriance sure we have the resources to educate and provide quality services for the students.

While humor is an important part of his personality, Tombaugh adds that he is serious too. It is humor that enables him to maintain a clear view of the issues and work efficiently. And that is certainly important, as well as difficult, when your responsibilities range from the classroom to the nation.

Illustrate eroticism in fashion in the Victorian Age with an article of clothing you design and make yourself. Then let your peers critique it. " Think you could do it? Where would you start ? How could someone grade you on something like that? If you ' re in the School of Design, you face challenges like this every day. Aimee Kendl, an Environmental Design student, chose the above topic as her semester-long independent study in a Textile Design studio. Studios, required for all design majors, are courses in which students apply the skills learned in regular classes to their chosen discipline (like archictecture, textile design, or product design). Under the guidance of her instructor, Susan Wilchins, Aimee created seven projects within her topic—among them a book, a scarf, collars, and something that started out as a fan, but upon completion, she was not sure what it turned out to be. The deviation of Aimee ' s " fan " is okay because she has learned to go beyond her preconceptions and prejudices to discover the options open to her. One example of this open interpretation is the variety of projects that resulted from an assignment in Aimee ' s studio: Illustrate an aspect of an American commemorative, conceptual artifact. Some of the outcomes were a prayer rug, a quilt, and a pair shoes. Since revision is a large part of the work, critiquing is important in forming projects. Throughout the creation of a project an artist can request critiques involving fellow students as well as the instructor. This allows the artist to see whether the piece conveys what it ' s supposed to by viewing it through other ' s eyes. After all the work is done, the artist is left with something usable. For example, Aimee wears her shawl and uses the pillows she made. But don ' t be deceived—each project tells a story, makes a statement, or symbolizes something the artist feels strongly about. As Aimee puts it, " Textile Design: it ' s not just girls sewing.

State College of Veterinary Medicine was designed and built to provide training to veterinarians, research support to the Research Triangle, service to North Carolina and the United States, and special vet training in the form of graduate programs, clinical residences, and internships. Out of the 27 veterinary schools in the U.S., NCSU ' s college is ranked in the top four, and is the only vet school in the country that has a Teaching Animal Unit (TAU), a farm with common domestic agricultural animals located on the campus. The vet school administers to common domestic livestock and poultry as well as companion animals, from cats to gerbils to caged birds. Each week students visit the N.C. Zoo in Asheboro to work with the zoo veterinarian, an adjunct professor with the vet school. The college also has an award-winning herd of dairy cattle whose milk is sold Pine State and who supply NCSU with ice cream. Besides the growth of the campus, the College of Veterinary Medicine has experienced many changes over the years. All students are required to take computer classes to learn the economics of the field, such as herd management and productivity management. The school is also aware of today ' s high animal consciousness, including animal rights and human benefits from veterinary work. There have also been changes in the student body: now a majority of the students at the school are female. The growth and development of the College is sure to continue into the future. • 86 Academics Sehoya Harris Sehoya Harris One of the many skeletons on display at the vet school.

If you haven ' t guessed, these wild and crazy people are N.C. State ' s graduating class of 1991. Amidst the popping of champagne corks and bouncing of beach balls, former president of the University of North Carolina School System William C. Friday addressed the graduates. His focus was the changes that affected America and the world over the past 50 years. Though many advancements have been made in such areas as transportation, communication, medicine, and mass production, Friday warned against the negative developments: poverty, poor education, threats against First Amendment rights, and the mistakes of previous generations. " The greedy, `get-while-you-can ' attitude of our generation will have dire and expensive consequences for your generation and your children, " said Friday. To the graduates, poised on the brink of " real life " on their own and anticipating the future, these hard realities could be depressing. But Friday revealed his reasons for speaking of the problems graduates would face: education is a valuable weapon against social problems and well-educated people have the tools and opportunities to make the world a better place. He then encouraged the graduates to meet the challenges head-on, to make a difference, and, most importantly, to fight for their First Amendment freedoms. " Be a participant, " said Friday, " and not just a passenger through society. Be sure your life counts for something of value. " Thus challenged, the graduates let out a mighty whoop and attempted several times to do " the Wave. " Then the deans of the individual colleges formally pronounced the graduates qualified to receive their degrees. Another mighty whoop followed, as well as a successful Wave. Graham Boyd continued the ceremonies by first addressing his fellow graduates and then by leading them in " The Turning of the Tassel. " The collective holler was explosive, caps confetti, and champagne corks filled the air. As the crowd dispersed to attend the individual school graduations, one thing still united the graduates. Not only were they celebrating the change from college student to college graduates, bu t they were also all faced with the challenge of the future. NCSU ' s work to prepare them was done, now it was up to them to make the most of the opportunities ahead.• Chris Hondros Academics 91 Moving on to the " real world " Chris Hondros Todd Bennett Even moms can be students, too!

Saddam Hussein, leader of Iraq, had invaded Kuwait. President George Bush immediately came to Kuwait ' s defense by sending troops to Saudi Arabia, neighbor to Kuwait. Hussein ' s act of aggression came to be known as the Middle East Crisis - or Operation Desert Shield. As he refused to withdraw, the entire world was split in its opinion of the situation. Members of the United Nations believed that democracy had to be upheld. Many countries sent troops, but the U. S. was the obvious leader with over 500,000 men and women stationed in the Gulf by the end of the wa r. At home, citizens of the U. S. were in an uproar. Would this crisis become another Vietnam? Hussein ' s actions were not a direct threat to the United States, so why were we defending? As in previous wars, protestors voiced their opoinions. Students for Peace marched across Washington, D. C. to display the message that war was not the solution. However, the majority of the population supported the action taken by George Bush. Saddam became everybody ' s enemy, and support for the armed forces was high. American flags flew , and yellow ribbons appeared everywhere in the immense show of support. The world hoped that Hussein would pull out voluntarily. Saddam, however, refused to agree to terms set by the UN Security Council requesting his immediate withdrawal from Kuwait. Bush felt he had no other alternative than to give Hussein a deadline for war. January 15, 1991 became the due date, and loomed in the minds of millions of Americans. Families began to count the days left before their children became involved in an all out war. Before fighting even started, msny soldiers were killed, not by bullets, but from military accidents. Drills, moving vehicles, and other various demons saw the death of more soldiers than the battlefield (continued) News 97 Nathan Guinn Associated Press (continued from p. 97) would see. Almost five months had passed since deployment as the January 15 deadline approached. A last ditch effort to end hostilities was made during the peace talks in Geneva, though it was obvious Hussein had no intentions of backing down. Communication was not lacking, but no agreement was in sight because there was no room for compromise. Hussein commented, " Should the Americans become embroiled, we will make them swim in their own blood. " After the unsuccessful peace talks, UN members still tried to find ways to end the hostilities. UN Chief Javier Perez de Cuellar travelled to Baghdad to try to persuade Hussein that it was in his best interest to leave Kuwait. On the 15th of January, 1991, several hours after the deadline for withdrawal passed, the United States declared war on Iraq. At first, it was a solitary air war, with constant bombings on Iraq during the night. The U.S. faired considerably well. To our benefit, Iraq ' s troops were poorly treated and underfed. Other Mid-Eastern countries, such as Jordan, declared they would avoid involvement unless they were directly threatened by either side. Isreal suffered damage from missile attacks, but for politcal reasons, were encouraged not to retaliate by the UN. The threat of chemical warfare loomed overhead, causing citizens of Kuwait to keep their gas masks close at hand. As the possibility of a ground war became evident, Hussein was given the chance to leave Kuwait without losing face. Again he refused all efforts to make peace. On February 21, U. S. ground forces attacked. One hundred hours later, the war was over. One hundred forty-nine U. S. soldiers were killed, and 513 were wounded. Countless numbers of Iraqi soldiers and civilians lost their lives so a madman could avoid appearing weak. In retrospect, however, Hussein lost not only the respect of his nation, but also that of the world. 98 News Although many people support the action taken by President Bush, those like Paula Kotula, a member of Students For Peace, protest the war in the Middle East.

On this day, the East German Parliament voted itself and its country out of existence. Freedom for the East Germans did not happen overnight. When other Eastern Bloc countries opened their borders, many East Germans seized the opportunity to escape to the West. Beginning in September of 1989, over 200,000 people fled the country. Knowing the necessity of reform, East German Communist Party Leader Egon Krenz announced the dismantling of the Berlin Wall. On November 12, 1989, the first section of the wall was removed, and East Germans finally gained the freedom to leave their country. On March 18, Associated Press 1990, the first free elections were held in East Germany. During the December 2 elections, Helmut Kohl, former Chancellor of West Germany, was elected to lead the reunified Germany. July 1, " X-day, " marked the merge of the East and West German economies. The four World War II allies decided on September 12 to terminate their remaining occupation rights in Berlin. The Soviets and Germans agreed to allow four years for the Soviet army to leave former East Germany. Reunification was not without cost. More than S60 billion was spent reconstructing East Germany in 1990, and it is estimated that 8775 billion will be spent over the next ten years. • Throughout the world the United States has been known for its democracy. Over the past year many nations that were previously under nondemocratic rule realized the benifits of freedom. In early 1990, political prisoner Nelson Mandela was given his freedom by the South African government. He had been serving a life term on the charges of allegedly devising a plan to undermine the white leaders. After his release, Mandela conducted a tour of North America, Europe, and Africa. During his orations, Mandela requested that foreign governments support sanctions against South Africa, and solicited funds for the African National Congress (ANC). Defeating the Sandinista government in the fight for freedom, Violeta Barrios de Chamarro was elected President of Nicaragua. Chamarro, who published the opposition newspaper in Nicaragua, was greatly supported by the people. To be sure that foul play did not alter the results, counters were carefully watched. The United Nations and the Organization of American States were among the groups to oversee the elections. In Europe, for the first time in 53 years, crowds in Romania voted in a free election. Opponents accused Ion Iliescu, the newly elected president, of election fraud, but he had total support from the country ' s people.

Gantt and Helms both had very strong views on very touchy issues. Gantt took a more liberal position on these views while Jesse Helms, true to color, took the conservative side. The issues debated were some of the main concerns in society today. Abortion and racism, were the high priority issues over which Helms and Gantt argued. These subjects brought the senate race to the forefront of the national vote. Abortion has been a taboo subject for many years, and Gantt and Helms proved that this was still the case. Jesse Helms took the conservative stance on the issue by saying that abortion should not be legal and the decision to make it so should be abolished. Harvey Gantt chose a more liberal view relating abortion to a freedom of choice. Pro- choice rallies and anti- abortion rallies were a common sight in North Carolina during the campaign. Racism was one of the most heated debates in the campaign. There was no question whether racism was right or wrong, but how much of a role it would play in the voter ' s mind on election day. The southern states had never put a black man in senate and the nation was curious to know if this would be the year for it to happen. When the polls opened on November 6, 1990 voters turned out in record numbers. Controversy struck in Durham, a pro-Gantt area, when voting machines experienced technical difficulties. To Helms ' dismay, polls were kept open much later than the designated closing hour.

What parts of life could drive a person to suicide? There are abundant answers to this question, one being colloge life. It provides many obstacles and worries that can push a person over the edge. College is a very big change for most people. Being away from home and acting responsible are two aspects that require extremely huge adjustments in lifestyle. Assignments to do, pressure from parents to keep grades up, and efforts to maintain a social life keep students up in the air all week. Not only does pressu re come from parents, it comes from other students as well. It seems like the ultimate quest is to try to fit in and be popular. Many people join a sorority or fraternity, which succeeds in adding to the work load. Some students experience financial worries, such as how to pay for next semester ' s tuition, or how to pay for a sixty dollar calculus book. All together these pressures can build up and take their toll on a person ' s life. At N. C. State, two students succumbed to the pressure during the 1990-1991 academic year. In late November, Teddy Hatcher Jr. was taken to Rex Hosital after an attempted suicide. Efforts to revive him failed. Then in March, Stephen Arnold Douglas was found dead in his dorm room.

State and a native of St. Albans, West Virginia, accepted the head coaching job vacated by Jim Valvano. Robinson made a big impression on Wolfpack fans during the 1990-91 season. The Pack, picked by most pre-season polls to finish sixth in the league, did better than most expexted en route to a very satisfying 20-11 record. Those numbers tied him with Press Maravich as the second all-time winningest first-year coach, and just the third coach in the ACC to have a winning record his first year. Robinson first became acquainted with N.C. State after accepting a basketball scholarship in 1960. After leading the Wolfpack freshman team in scoring during the 1961 season, Robinson, who was red-shirted in 1962, played for the varsity in 1963 and ' 64. He bypassed what would have been his senior season to assist with coaching chores in 1965 as the Wolfpack won the ACC title. Upon graduating with a dual degree in recreation parks administration and physical education in 1965, Robinson remained on the Wolfpack staff with Coach Press Maravich for the 1966 campaign where he served as a recruiter and chief scout. Robinson accepted his first head coaching job in 1966 when he accepted a position a Cedar Key (Fla.) High School where he compiled an impressive 43-9 record in two years. In 1969 Robinson took an assistant coach position at Western Carolina. He stayed for one season before moving on to the Citadel. At the Citadel Robinson was also an assistant, but in 1975 he rose to the position of head coach for the Cadets. In his 11 season at the Citadel, Robinson became the school ' s all-time winningest coach posting 132 victories. Robinson ' s last stop before coming to N.C. State was at East Tennessee State. Beginning in the 1985-86 season, Robinson guided the Buccaneers to a Southern Conference regular season title, two league tournament titles and two NCAA Tournament appearances in five seasons.

Opening the season, the Pack got off to a quick start winning its first 10 games. State won both the Rainbow Wahine Classic and the Wildcat Havoline Holiday Classic, and was ranked as high as second in the nation.

And the 1990-91 season brings to a close one of the most prolific eras for guard play for both the men ' s and women ' s basketball teams. In the history of Wolfpack hoops there has never been an assembly of guards that rivals the four that completed their collegiate careers this past season. For the men, Rodney Monroe and Chris Corchiani epitomized what great guard play was all about. Monroe had ice water in his veins, while Corchiani was the force that pushed the Wolfpack to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Between these two players, they own numerous awards and honors that are well-deserved. Monroe became N.C. State ' s all-time leading scorer surpassing David Thompson who played on the Wolfpack ' s 1974 National Championship team. Corchiani became the first player in NCAA history to dish out more than 1,000 assists. Corchiani is also State ' s all-time steals leader. For the women the illustrious careers of Andrea Stinson and Nicole Lehamnn came to a close after the 1990-91 season as well.

As a junior she was named to the Kodak All-American team. This season she averaged 22.9 points and 6.3 rebounds in 32 games. In her three years at N.C. State she was selected to the all- tournament team in all 12 tournaments in which the Wolfpack has participated. Meanwhile, Nicole Lehmann followed a different path to stardom. Lehmann ' s specialty was the three- point shot, delighting crowds in Reynolds Coliseum with her downtown bombs. The 5-5 guard entered the season as the ACC ' s all- time three-point specialist.

State cheerleading squad pulled it off. The 1991 squad travelled to Texas for the championship and defeated numerous squads for the title. For the cheerleaders it was the culmination of a year of hard work. The team, both the red and the white squads, did more than show up at the games to get the crowd behind the Wolfpack teams in competition. Before any of the cheerleaders stepped onto the field or court, they put in many long, unseen hours of practice. The team cheers at a level of precision that results directly from repetition of the routines. Beginning last summer by helping at the university cheerleading camp, the team worked with high school cheerleaders to improve their skills. Next for the team was football season, and the task of leading 45,000 Wolfpack fans in support of the football team. Their efforts paid off as the football team made it all the way to the All American Bowl and a victory over the Golden Eagles of Souther Mississippi. Following football season the team split into its red and white squads for basketball season. The red squad cheers for the men while the white squad cheer for the women.

As the season began in early September, head coach Judy Martino had reason to be optimistic. Four starters returned from an 8-23 squad that began jelling at the end of the previous season. The schedule was not nearly as demanding, prompting Martino to believe her young team could obtain some confidence early. But then the season began. Before the Pack could even its feet wet, the team was 0-5, and still struggling for consistency. " It was a year of disappointment as far as our wins and losses are concerned, " Martino said. " We still made some milestones the last couple of seasons. " When the Pack did come together, the team played superior volleyball. After getting beat in the first three matches at the Illinois State Invitational, State went to Eastern Illinois and played a " nearly perfect match, " according to assistant coach Leigh Anne Barker. And who could forget the thrilling five-game win over North Carolina at home. Trailing in the final game, State found the right combination and took the two-and- a-half-hour match to the delight of the crowd of nearly 1,000 fans in Reynolds Coliseum. It was, without a doubt, a year of streaks for the team as well as the players. After taking three of five matches in late September, setter Alice Commers was named ACC player of the week. Commers went on to record 935 sets for the season, and finished fourth in the conference in assists per game with a 9.83 average. Outside hitter Lisa Kasper suffered through a miserable trip to Texas during fall break, but regrouped to play well in the conference season, and earned second-team all-ACC honors. And there were some surprises, led by freshman Tennekah Williams. After getting limited playing time in the first few matches, the 6 ' 2 " Williams started playing solidly, and even got the starting call last in the year. Williams led the team with 73 blocks, and was second in the conference with a 1.06 blocks per game average. Other highlights from the 1990 campaign include a 3-3 conference record and a fourth place finish, as well as a first round ACC Tournament victory. The final tally after losing to Maryland in the ACC ' s second round had the Pack finishing 9-14, a record that may be a little deceiving. Still it was not what Martino expected. " We did struggle too much this season, " Martino said. " We just made too many errors. " The future still looks bright for the Pack. The team only loses one senior, Tressa Paul, and will gain several recruits. " I don ' t want to overemphasize this, but we still are very young, " Martino said. " Experience is hurting us. We still have lots to do. Hopefully everyone will keep striving to get better.

Todd Bennett Wolfpack swimmers set new marks The N.C. State swim teams had successful 1991 campaigns under the direction of veteran coach Don Easterling. On the women ' s side, the Wolfpack finished third in the ACC behind strong performances by diver Agnes Gerlach, breast stroker Laura Mazar and butterfly specialist Suzanne Gardiner. The women came in behind UNC and Virginia in the ACC meet, taking four first places, four second places and two third places. Gerlach anchored the Pack effort taking second place in the one-meter springboard competition. She then came back to win the three-meter competition. In the pool, Mazar won the 100m breast stroke and finshed second in the 200m breast stroke. Gardiner won the 200m butterfly race. Besides doing well individually, the Pack women also had success in the relay events taking first in the 200m medley relay, finishing second in the 400m medley relay and taking third place in the 200m free style relay. Easterling was honored as the ACC Coach of the Year for his efforts with the women ' s team. On the men ' s side, David Fox led the team to a second place finish in the ACC. During the ACC meet, Fox set new school records for both the 50m and 100m free style races. State ' s other victory came in the 400m free style relay race. In diving, Pat McCord took third place in both the one-meter and three-meter competitions. After the ACCs, the teams took a five-week layoff from competition to prepare for the NCAA meets. The women had onley one qualifier, Agnes Gerlach, and she finished 28th in the one-meter competition and 14th in the three- meter competition in Indianapolis, Ind. The men entered the NCAA Championships with high expectations. These expectations were dashed early, however, as David Fox performed poorly in his two events. The relay teams faired nearly as bad as they each finished in 20th place overall.

Sports 169 stiers take fourtii title Pack Going into the 1990-91 season, Wolfpack wrestling coach Bob Guzzo wanted nothing more from his team than to defend its ACC title. For the past three seasons, N.C. State had won the ACC Tournament and established itself as premiere team in the conference. The Pack finished the regular season with a record of 11-8 overall and 3-3 in the ACC. Throughout the season, the Wolfpack had outstanding individual performances from senior Ricky Strausbaugh, sophomore Clayton Grice, junior Steve Williams and sophomore Sylvester Terkay. On the strength of the performances the Pack was able to capture its fourth straight ACC title. The Pack outdistanced UNC and Clemson for the tournament win. Enroute to the team ' s fourth title, four Wolfpack wrestlers captured individual titles — Grice at 126 pounds, Mark Mangrum at 134 pounds, Williams at 177 pounds and Terkay in the heavyweight division. Terkay was also named the tournament ' s most outstanding wrestler. The next step for the Wolfpack was a stop in Iowa City Iowa for the NCAA Tournament. Last season ' s tournament was a disappointment for the Pack as only two wrestlers escaped their first round matches. This year, however, the experience the team gathered last year paid off. State finished 16th overall out of 96 teams and had two All-Americas. Freshman Chris Kwortnik emerged wit h an inspired performance and finished sixth in the nation in the 167-pound division. Sophomore heavyweight Terkay once again proved that he was one of the top wrestlers in 1991 as he finished third in his division.• Ravi Lalka An NCSU wrestler locks the leg of his University of North Carolina opponent during a recent match at Reynolds Coliseum.

Sophomore Sean Ferriera led the Pack during the season playing the number one singles position. Ferriera had the team ' s biggest win when he upset Yasser Zaatini, the 17th-ranked college player from East Tennessee State. The Pack opened the season going undefeated in its first three matches, taking two wins and one tie. State defeated UNC-Greensboro in the opener, tied Elon College and defeated UNC-Charlotte. The Pack ' s string was broken, however, as ETSU outlasted State. The loss sent the Pack on a downward spiral as the team dropped its next 11 matches. State got back on the winning track by taking wins over Davidson, and conference foe Maryland. The celebration was short-lived, as State fell in its final two regular season matches. The Pack lost to Wake Forest and Hampton to close out the season. Next up for the Pack was the ACC Tournament. State drew Clemson in the first round.

Bad weather in the form of rain and frigid temperatures kept the Pack from playing its first two matches. When the Pack finally took the court, the team played much the same way as the weather. In the first match of the season, State was shut-out by Duke. The Pack bounced back and defeated UNC-Greensboro in its next match. State ' s first ACC win of the season came against the Maryland Terrapins. The victory snapped a three-match losing streak against the Terps, and gave the Pack some momentum going into its match with UNC Chapel Hill. The lift the team received from beating Maryland was not enough to sustain the Pack as the Tar Heels soundly defeated State. The Pack ' s skid continued over the next four matches. State lost to Georgia Tech, Clemson Furman, and Boston College. State returned to the winning side of the ledger in the final regular season match by defeating East Carolina. The win gave the team a boost heading into the ACC Tournament. The Pack ' s first round opponent was Clemson. The Tigers dispatched the Pack easily in the opening round.

Leading the head coach Ray Tanner ' s Wolfpack during the season was junior right- handed pitcher Matt Donahue, who neared State ' s single-season mark for complete games. The 12-game winner managed nine going into the NCAA tournament. The record is held by Mike Caldwell, set in 1969. The Wolfpack began to come together late in the season. After an impressive showing in the ACC tournament, State took two big wins over Southern Cal and Rider in the Carolina Invit. In the Rider game, Jeff Pierce caught fire, belting four home runs in six at- bats. State opened the tournament by defeating Ohio University in the first round.

State gymnastics team was a careful balance of experience and youth for head coach Mark Stevenson. Led by a trio of senior captains the Wolfpack finished with a record of 6-7 Pacing the Pack through most of the year were seniors Karen Tart, Kerri Moreno and Jennifer Jansen. Tart entered the season as the holder of six individual records, and her experience was a big motivator for the team. Moreno closed out her career for the Pack as the most consistent performer on the balance beam. Jansen, however, suffered a knee injury mid-way through the season and was unable to complete her final season. The team was not dominated by the seniors however. Juniors Carey Buttlar and Jill Bishop were among the top performers throughout the season. Buttlar, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., was the Pack ' s lone qualifer for the NCAA regional meeet. Buttlar led the team with the best all- around average. She also paced the squad in the floor exercise in all nine meets. Sophomore Karen Chester was the Pack ' s next best performer on the floor exercise. The Pack opened its season against Division II Longwood College. State easily defeated the Lancers to take its first win of the season. State followed this win with a victory over Radford. The Wolfpack suffered its first setback of the season when the team travelled to Williamsburg, Va., to face the Tribe of William Mary. State bounced back at home the following weekend to finish second in a three-way match with New Hampshire and UNC. The meet was only the second time in the 11-year history of the Wolfpack gymnastics program that a competition was held in Reynolds Coliseum. Over spring break the gymnasts travelled west for a pair of meets. First up for the Pack was the University of Denver. State lost a narrow decision in the meet. State then faced Eastern Michigan and again lost. The Pack got back on the winning side of the ledger with a top finish in a quad meet in Raleigh. State outdistanced squads from George Washington, Rhode Island and Georgia College. This success was short-lived, however, as the Wolfpack finished the season with a third place finish behind UNC and Maryland in the ACC Tri-meet, and a dual meet loss to UNC in Chapel Hill.

We asked organizations to submit pictures of themselves involved in activities representative of their groups or to schedule times that our photographers could shoot them. The livelier representation of organizations in this section is based on individual groups ' participation and cooperation with our goal.

The varied terrain, friendly and diverse mix of people, and fine educational opportunities all combine to give " The Old North State " a unique and unbeatable charm. NCSU students know these things because over 90 percent of them come from somewhere in the state. North Carolina boasts one of the most diverse landscapes in the nation. The state has miles of golden beaches to the east, a gently hilly central section, and the scenic Appalachian mountains to the west. The 52,669 square miles of land have mostly warm summers and mild winters, though the mountains get enough snow for fine skiing. There is more than 300 miles of coast on the eastern shore of North Carolina. The beaches, inlets and islands are renowned across the nation for recreation and fishing. The Outer Banks, a thin strip of islands just off the coast, are famous across the world for their pristine beauty. Visitors always marvel at the teams of wild horses that roam free on the beaches, and also at such landmarks as the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the largest in the country. The Outer Banks was also the site of the Wright Brothers historical first flight, in 1903. The Piedmont middle section of North Carolina contains most of the state ' s urban areas and economic hubs. One of the largest military installations in the nation, Fort Bragg, is located adjacent to Fayetteville. And the Research Triangle Park, a world leading corporate center, is found along Interstate 40 within short drives from Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. The mountainous western part of the state contains the scenic Great Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains. Residents and tourist alike journey to the mountains for dozens of recreational activities. The town of Boone sports excellent skiing, and spots like Roan Mountain, Moore ' s Wall and Stone Mountain are havens for hikers and rockclimbers everywhere. Little known to most North Carolina residents is the fact that Mountain Mitchell, elevation 6,684 feet, is the highest point east of the Mississippi River. Another reason North Carolina draws visitors from all over the world is its top notch system of higher education. Ninety-nine percent of the states 6.5 million people live within a 30 minute drive of one the 58 community colleges. And the 16 campus University of North Carolina system, anchored by nationally acclaimed North Carolina State and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, offers world-class education at some of the lowest tuition rates anywhere. Private institutions such as Duke University and Wake Forest University are also world leaders. As a part of word class leaders, Agromeck proudly presents our pictorial coverage of the state through the eyes of our photojournalists.

This phrase is not empty. While some stories need words, many are better told through photos. Photojournalism is telling stories through pictures. Because photography is a science and journalism is flexible, objectivity and accuracy of the craft are dependent on the individual. This individuality makes many photographers jump at the chance to win prizes in contests. And in " the business " , those who win become legends. So what makes a photojournalist legendary? To answer this question one could look to Brian Lanker, Pulitzer Prize winner and twice- named National Photographer of the Year (POY). " If I am satisfied with artsy, abstract pictures that confuse the reader, I belong somewhere else, " he says. " The reader must come first. " In other words, a good photojournalist must be an objective story teller with his or her own personal style. Over the years, N.C. State has been blessed with many talented photojournalists. Through incisive pictures, they move reader ' s emotions in ways words simply cannot. Two decades ago, Michael O ' Brien started a tradition by gracing Agromeck ' s pages with award-winning work. During the late 70 ' s and early 80 ' s many talented photojournalists adorned the yearbook staff. Top guns like Seny Norasingh, who after graduation was twice named North Carolina POY by the North Carolina Press Photographer ' s Association (NCPPA), and Greg Gibson, once named N.C. POY, were common. Chris Seward, photo editor of Agromeck while Gibson and Norasingh were staffers, won second place sports feature in the National Pictures of the Year competition sponsored by the National Press Photographer ' s Association. The mid- and late 80 ' s were sparse with talent. But Roger Winstead and Marc Kawanishi set an almost indomitable presidence- both were named Student POY by the NCPPA, had numerous wins in the NCPPA ' s monthly professional clip contest, and were All-American at least four times. While Winstead was the first NCSU student to win an NCPPA professional category award, honorable mention in sports action, Kawanishi was the first NCSU student to win in the National College POY contest, an award of excellence in spot news. The 90 ' s have the potential to be a photojournalistic renaissance. Today ' s Agromeck photojournalists are already winning awards and internships. The next few pages display some of their best work. • Roger Winstead North Carolina 225 Chris hondros Chris Hondros, 21, currently serves as assistant photographics editor of Agromeck and was the photographics editor of Technician.

I ' m really not in the mood to be cheesy, but there ' s some history to record and some people to thank. So please bear with me. If I stretch my memory, I think I started this book as photo editor. Since then, the original editor quit in November ' 90, gracing me (well, I guess I did ask for it) with not only this book and a substantial budget deficit, but also her 1990 Agromeck which was already three months late and far from complete. Our staff had to move (isn ' t that a theme somewhere?) from the Student Center to the new Student Center Annex only two months into my reign. Moving all the work in progress while keeping it intact was tough. Anyway, I ' m not whining. I just want you, the reader, to appreciate the book you are now holding. This organization has been through a tough period. It was questionable at times whether we ' d make it through at all. But we did. And I think we have a great book to show for it. So please go back and look over the pages of the 1991 Agromeck and view it in light of this new knowledge. Not only does this book represent the life and events at NCSU for the 1990-91 school year, it also represents the controversy, aggravation, and dedication that surrounded it. Thank you for buying this book, or at least for showing the interest to read it. Also my sincere thanks goes to my staffers who stayed with me when the going got tough. Thanks to those who started this book and stuck it through to the finish and to those who joined in during the rough times. Amanda, Chris, Todd, Joe, Brent, Tara, Julie, Kris, and the rest of you, you ' re wonderful! And thank you Marc for going far beyond what anyone could expect. If it wasn ' t for all your work and you standing behind me continuously pushing and encouraging me, I ' m not sure I could have made it. I suppose Dorian deserves thanks, too, for putting up with me and for giving me his support. Thanks for not dumping me like you said you would if I ever took this job! Thanks also to Brian Hunter, Technician, WKNC, Drew Smith, Nancy Motsinger, Diane Ocilka and Thompson Theatre, Joel and Vicky Siegal, Pamarah Gerace, Mark Bockelman, and Shari Hardman. Last but not least, thank you Mom and Dad for all your support. Although you didn ' t always agree or understand, you always stood behind me. Thanks for always being there. I can ' t believe it ' s finally over. It hasn ' t necessarily been all fun and games, but I have enjoyed it and I ' ve learned and grown tremendously. I ' m very glad I had this opportunity. But can I go back to taking pictures and drawing layouts now? closing 335 keep on moving
