Coffee shops springing up everywhere pro- vide the cus- tomer with exot- ic freshly ground beans, coffee with cin- namon, rich, chocolate syrups, iced coffee or fra- pucchinos home- made cookies or bagels to go along with that cup, and often an assortment of little gift ideas for the coffee-holic.

Students need only brave the dan- gers OF crossing Hillsborough Street TO see State ' s growing number of coffee shops. The very first to open was KEAGAN ' S; the SMALL, QUIET SHOP WHERE YOU CAN WATCH THE MILLS OF MORNING TRAFFIC FROM ITS COUNTER AND CHAIRS FACING THE STREET. Next is the ever-popular Cup A Joe, the SMOKER ' S paradise WHERE THEY ACTUALLY ROAST THEIR OWN BEANS. It WASN ' T TOO LONG BEFORE THE NATION- al coffee giants decided to come to NC State. Caribou Coffee came to hang ITS HAT ON Hillsborough St two years -_ ago to offer STUDENTS A TASTE OF THE WESTERN BORN COFFEE. OF COURSE, ITS NATIONAL RIVAL, STARBUCK ' S, COULDN ' T LET THAT SLIDE, SO THEY SET UP OP THIS PAST YEAR JUST ONE BLOCK AWAY. Despite the myriad of coffees and SHOPS TO choose FROM. ANY COFFEE LOVER WILL TELL YOU THAT IT IS ONE OF THE SIMPLEST PLEA- SURES OF ALL. Whether with friends or alone TO POUR over the MORNING NEWSPAPER, THE COFFEE SHOPS OF HILLSBOROUGH ARE AN ESCAPE FROM THE DAILY SCHOLASTIC GRIND, A HAVEN FROM DREARY RESPONSIBILITIES. THE DOOR CLOSES BEHIND YOU, THE WHINE OF TRAFFIC IS REPLACED BY MURMURING VOICES AND SOFT MUSIC. YOU CAN SEEP INTO A MOMENT THAT IS BROWN, BITTERSWEET, AND MOST IMPOR- TANTLY, ALL YOUR OWN. IT SEEMS ALL TOO SOON BEFORE THE BOTTOM OF THE CUP IS STARING BACK AT YOU WITH ITS WHITE EMPTINESS. HEY, AT LEAST THE REFILLS ARE CHEAP.

Bands on hand at the ' 96 Lawn Party includ- ed Squirrel Nut Zippers, Vertical Horizons and Gibb Droll. The whole purpose of THE Lawn Party revolves around the idea of giving Sigma Phi to a variety of dif- ferent philanthropies.

After drinking beer and more beer and yet another beer or two (except for the two desig- nated drivers that had to cart evevryone home), the real fun started. First, there was the mass exodus of people leaving the party. the procession moved like a bunch of line-dancers minus rhythm. everyone meandered into the road and tried not to wander into the path of oncoming traffic. this was the true test. the designat- ed driver led the way, since only he knew where the car was parked. then came the not-as-drunk people, who quick- ly became designated crutches for the desig- nated drinker. As THE EXODUS MADE ITS WAY TO THE CARTER- FlNLEY PARKING LOT, OUR WEARY BAND WAS FOLL- LOWED BY SHOUTS OF, " GET OFF, THIS IS PUBLIC PROPERTY! You CAN ' T PISS HERE! GET OUT! " THOSE WHO COULDN ' T WAIT IN THE PORTA-JOHN LINE MADE THEIR WAY TO EVERY AVAILABLE TREE, SHRUB, BLADE OF GRASS BIG ENOUGH TO CONCEAL THEIR BUSINESS. Our JOURNEY BROUGHT PEOPLE TOGETHER. FRIENDS HELPED FRIENDS. SISTERS HELD BACK THEIR SISTERS ' HAIR SO THAT THEY COULD REMAIN BEAUTIFUL EVEN IN THE WORST OF SITUATIONS. . And THEN, THERE WAS THE PROMISED LAND- THE PARKING LOT. TWENTY PEOPLE PILED INTO EACH CAR AND TRUCK, AND SMALL RIOTS ENSUED. PEOPLE WERE HARD- PRESSED TO GET THE NAKED GUY TO WEAR ANYTHING, SO THEY JUST THREW HIM IN A TRUCK AND DROVE HIM AWAY. But it WAS after all this excitement that the true gala began- clean-up time. Those 20 cans you threw on the ground don ' t get picked up by the bud ice and michelob llght- beer can fairies, you know. a small band of fools-i mean, dedicated people-arrived to beau- tify the landscape. These dedicated people and ncsu ' s crew team got paid- ALTHOUGH not NEARLY ENOUGH, ONE participant said-to collect garbage. the lorax club col- lected the cans, of which most of • the litter was composed, because aluminum sells for money. Delta Sigma Phi and their new pledges got to take apart the stage and its var- ious components, which makes you wonder if that is what pledges are really for. The NEXT DAY, IT DIDN ' T LOOK SO BAD. What was once a row of porta-johns (thatwas not nearly long enough) stretched into the horizon, waitingto be reclaimed. and waiting for another nonstop day of use at next year ' s beer bash- i mean lawn party. but this is college, and it was a party,-so enjoy. But next time, just throw all the cans in one PILE so the cleaners CAN PICK THEM UP AT ONE SPOT-AND WOULDN ' T A MOUNTAIN OF ALUMINUM BE KIND OF COOL? im ' -.

" This show was put on by an all- women dance group that explored women ' s issues by using the art of cheerleading. The cheerleaders did wear pleated ski rts and per- form dance routines, but the cheers they sang were about the role of women in society rather than ath- letics, the squad chanted about topics like sexuality, harassment, motherhood, and job equality. the group was formed by artist kim ARWIN as PART OF HER EXPLORATION OF GENDER-BASED ROLES IN SOCIETY. THE SHOW RAN FOR ONE NIGHT IN OCTOBER. At Christmas time Stewart provided a place of celebration to a large number of groups. some of the groups utilizing the the- atre were n.c. state ' s combined choirs who put on a christmas performance, along with the popu- LAR New Horizons choir. In January, a travelling dance group, " second hand " made an appearance at stewart Theatre. " Second Hand " com- bined COMEDY, music, AND DANCE CREATE AN ACT TRULY UNIQUE.

Safety topped the list of concerns, FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY ISSUES OF RAPE, SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND HARASSMENT. Women WERE r::- •.• ALSO GIVEN THE OPTION OF SPEAK- ING OUT PRIOR TO THE FORUM BY ANONY- MOUSLY COMPLETING COMMENT FORMS THAT WERE SCATTERED ACROSS CAMPUS. REGARDING SAFETY, WOMEN SPOKE OUT ABOUT POOR LIGHTING IN CERTAIN AREAS OF CAMPUS AND ACCESSIBILITY INTO SOME BUILDINGS AFTER DARK. This especially affects faculty, staff, AND graduate STUDENTS WHO ARE SOMETIMES IN labs and offices after hours. Chancellor Larry Monteith addressed THE issues of SAFETY, " SINCE WE ' RE DESTINED TO BE AN URBAN COMMUNITY WE NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT SAFETY. " At the SAME TIME, " WE DON ' T WANT TO PUT A WALL AROUND CAMPUS AND LIMIT OUR MOVE- MENT. " ISSUES OF RAPE, SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND SEXU- AL HARASSMENT ARE ALSO IMPORTANT TO WOMEN AT NCSU. Many women expressed the need for self e 9t C i e. V ' defense classes. Currently, Human resources and public safety offer such couRES. The Women ' s Center offers a three- hour SELF DEFENSE COURSE TWICE A SEMESTER. One suggestion offered was to implement a SELF defense COURSE THROUGH ■■■■ THE Physical EDUCATION , Department. ' , -_ - , One COMPLAINT MANY OF the women had was the ' -■ accessibility of infoma- - tion concerning safety, many women said more information about sup- port programs for female victims of assault is needed. The Advocates Program is one way that vic- tims OF RAPE CAN SEEK HELP. ADVOCATES ARE volunteers who have gone through training regarding sexual assault issues. they act as guides through the system, helping find the appropriate resources. another concern is the need for a women ' s studies program. student senate Pro Tempore Jim Reinke supports this idea. " It will help gender diversty and under- standing " .

Nature and technology work together ON THE quickly EVOLVING CENTENNIAL Campus. However, parking is still a PROBLEM. The WOLFLINE is still THE MAJOR CONNECTION BETWEEN THE MAIN CAMPUS AND CENTENNIAL CAMPUS.

HOWEVER, TEXTILE STUDENTS ARE REFUSED PARKING PERMITS ON THE MAIN CAMPUS FOR THEIR OTHER CORE COURSES. Even though accessibility to the campus HAS been greatly IMPROVED WITH Centennial Parkway, few efforts have BEEN MADE TO IMPROVE THE PARKING SITUA- TION ON THE MAIN CAMPUS.

The Fair is ideal for bringing the fami- ly OUT FOR A NIGHT OF FUN ENTERTAIN- MENT. And as long AS you don ' t get stuck WITH the draw- backs of the fair, like spending a lot of money and standing in endless lines, fun and excitement is to be had by all. The Fair gives many local organiza- tions and businesses a chance to advertsise and get to know their mar- KET. Groups were invited to set up INFORMATIONAL BOOTHS AT THE FAIR. ON ALL NIGHTS THE PUBLIC COULD SEE POLICE AND FIRE VEHICLES ON DISPU Y, SAMPLE LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL FOODS, AND TAKE A RIDE ON HORSES BROUGHT IN FROM LOCAL FARMS. There was no disappointment FOR those who enjoy THE RIDES. THE FAIR HAD OVER A DOZEN ROLLER COASTERS RIDES, INCLUDING THE ZIPPER, AND THE PIRATE SHIP.

I ' ¥i % ' ' % Peace in the MiclcUc EilSt remained unstable as the school year began. A crisis erupted after Israel opened a new exit in a tunnel alongside a plateau, raising suspicions among Muslims that the Israelis were seeking to change the delicate religious balance in Jerusalem ' s Old City. The incident proved to be the breaking point in mounting Palestinian frustrations with the lack of mo ement in car- rying out the peace accords. Demonstrations followed where nearly 100 people were killed. Then emergency meetings were arranged by President Clinton in Washington between Benjamin Netanyahu and Yasir Arafat. ijOriS 1 CltSin (65) was re-elected President of Russia and pledged to continue the reforms he began five years ago.

The Boeing 747 jumbo jet plunged into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Long Island, NY. , just minutes after taking off from John F. Kennedy Airport for Paris. All 230 people on board were killed.

National Ne s i (),:) RAN When Disasters Strike Hurricajie Fraii did not leave N C State out of its path of destruction when it fell upon Raleigh. The hurri- cane, with wind gusts of up to 90 mph, earned the status of the worst storm to hit Wake County in over 30 years. The strong winds and vast flooding caused several problems around N C State ' s campus. Trees that once made the campus scenic and beauti- ful now laid uprooted, serv- ing only as irritating obsta- cles. Buildings were found standing under the weight of fallen trees, like the tree that fell to rest on Carmichael Gynmasium. No deaths could be attributed to Fran ' s wrath, but many injuries were sus- tained during the clean-up process. Numerous places. like Fraternity Court and Centermial Campus, were starved for electricity for a couple of days. With all the problems arising from the storm, few students could complain about the additional two days of vacation from classes, a decision ChanceUor Larry Monteith had little qualms about making. Because of the absence of classes, some students volun- teered their services to aid in the clean-up process. Even with all the efforts from mem- bers of the community, it has taken a long time to recover from Fran. And even people who ha ' e recuperated will never forget Fran and what happens when disasters strike. This brick home in Five points, llke many homes in the Raleigh area, had no chance withstanding Fran ' s incredible winds. The weight of the uprooted tree forced the roof off the house.

" The Women in Me " was iiania ' ain S biggest hit album of the year. It was the second album released by the Canadian singer, but it was by far her biggest hit. It went platinum and stayed on the Billboard Top 200 for over a year. i Alanis Morissette has talent that seems to know no limit. Her debut album, " Jagg ed Little Pill ' attracted considerable atten- tion thanks to the hit single, " You Oughta Know, " a fiery, . graphic rant at a former boyfriend. Morissette deliv- ers the deeply personal lyrics with a dramatic voice and a dramatic rhythm. As one critic put it: " She lashes out at her targets with a fury that makes her music both invig- orating and frightening. " A R B pop singer named 1 Olll HraxtOll hit the charts about three years ago and hasn ' t left. Her latest album, " Secrets " , blends her rich, smooth voice with a versatility that continues to grow with each new hit. " Secrets " has the firepower to carry Toni to the top. C ARENA The Macarena hit all the charts, from Latin to Pop, and enlivened dance floors all over the world. The song was first released three years ago and it became a big hit in Spain. i ClinC IJlOn had the impossible good fortune of taking two movie songs " Beauty and the Beast " and " Because You Loved Me " ( From Up Close and Personal) and took them to the top of the charts.

" Michael Todd Located on Centennial Campus, the College of Textiles represents the first step toward the future of NC State. As one of the largest centers of tex- tile research and education in the world, the College attracts a large number of industries to its campus. Since a textile is any prod- uct made from a fibrous substance, the field of tex- tiles encompasses every- thing from clothing and car- pets to automobile tires, artificial organs, and com- puter circuit boards. One of the on-going projects at the College is work toward the first manned mission to Mars. Professors and students work to develop super strong textile products for the spaceship and the land- ing module. These textiles must be able to withstand the heat of entering a plan- et ' s atmosphere and the sub-zero temperatures of the vacuum of space, but also be light enough to not require large sums of fuel in order to make the trip cost effecti ' e. The College of Textiles is the largest in the nation, with over 50 percent of the undergraduate stu- dents studying textile relat- ed fields enrolled in Raleigh. In addition, over 40 percent of master degree students and 75 percent of the doctorate degree stu- dents work and study at NC State. Graduates of the College of Textiles at NC State are always in high demand. Over 90 percent of the graduating seniors find permanent placement.

Junior Molly McGaughey said, " To be able to share personal experiences on a one to one basis between stu- dents and faculty is truly a special gift- " Being a design student takes patience, commitment, creativity and most importantly, time. Most students spend Saturday after- noons in the studio fin- ishing projects. The hard work must pay off because the student body consistently ranks at the top of academic achievements and the graduation rate is the highest within the uni- versify.

The blind someday will be able to see again, thanks to the recent development of an artificial retina by Dr. Wentai Liu. Dr. Liu, a professor of Electrical Engineering, has been work- ing with UNC-Chapel Hill and Johns Hopkins University on the design of a microchip that could restore sight to people with retinal pigmentosa. This development is just one of many that are the result of intense study and research at the College. Dean of Engineering Nino A. Masnari expressed a renewed interest in recruit- ing and retaining the best students in the engineering program to continue these strides. With the Engineering Graduate Research Center completed, the goal is to e xpand undergraduate involvement in research activities. This involvement is evident in the Senior Design Project, which helps students establish parameters of a problem and develop methods to solve it. By encouraging interdisciplinary involve- ment, students are able to benefit from all areas of engineering rather than " living in the box. " In addition, efforts have been made to make distance education both cost effective and as close as possible to sitting in an actual classroom. The College has implemented three valu- able tools for communication: closed circuit television, video tape, and inter- net classes available to students statewide. Dr. Tom Miller, assistant dean for information technology, and Kathy Hewitt, a graduate student in computer engineering, have developed a way to use Internet conferencing tech- nology to conduct classes online with live video and real-time interaction between the professor and students. Dr. Gary Mirka, assistant professor of industrial engineering taught a class online to students in the Fall semester of 1996.

Students who begin at NC State as a pre-vet major may be accepted into the Vet School early and transfer credits toward a degree in veterinary medicine. Each year, the Vet School holds an open house where visi- tors can learn more about the latest research, tech- niques, and classes.

The Wolfpack, try- ing to rebound from a disapoint- ing 3-8 campaign in ' 95 saw their consecutive bowl appear- ance string end at a school- record seven, return 13 starters and 49 lettermen for 1996 to face the most ambitious sched- ule in the last two decades. For the Pack to return to its custom- ary place in the upper division of the Ace and compete for a bowl berth, it must first believe in those threee words-faith focus and finish. " I think those words, in a nutshell, should typi- fy what this program is all about, " said fourth-year coach Mike O ' Cain. First, we need to have complete faith in each other, what the program is all about, where we are going and how we get there. Every player has to know that the person next to him is giving his all to do exactly what is expected of him, because that will make every- one more effective in their pur- suit of success.

Hall and her players made great strides in developing an attractive style of play that led them to a 20-15 record in 1995. Now, in 1996, the Wolfpack players and coaching staff are hungry for more. In Hall ' s third year as head coach, and with the core of the 1995 team returning, the Pack is extremely opti- mistic about their success in 1 996. " The team seems solid and is ready to go both physically and mentally, " says Hall. " A nice feature in my opinion is that this year ' s Wolfpack team will never look the same twice. We have many personnel options, and hopefully that will make for exciting volleyball. " During last spring the Pack worked on creating that excitement, along with a renewed focus on physical condition- ing, strength and fundamentals. Coach Hall was pleased with the improvement she saw in many of her players. " So many of these players are beginning to come into their own, " says Hall, " They have matured in their skill level and their focus. " Although Hall has lost four players to graduation, she returns nine key players along with five newcomers, whose experience will prove invaluable to the team ' s outcome. In 1996, Hall will blend the talents of four seniors, three juniors, four sopho- mores and three freshmen to make a run at the ACC championship and the NCAAs.

Kim Gaffney Searle 120 O Sports ym nasties The East Atlantic Gymnastics League Championships held on March 22 here at Reynolds Coliseum represented the culmina- tion of one of the Pack ' s strongest seasons. It also highlighted a turnaround of what could have turned into one of the worst years for the Pack. State started off their season against a tough then-ranked-No.7 Florida team. With senior tri-captain Elizabeth Bertstain being userd in only limited capacities due to mono, Mark Stevenson ' s squad, comprised mostly of underclassman seeing their first collegitate action, struggled to a 188.8-191.35 loss to the Gators. Had this meet been used as a for- caster of things to come, many would say that the Pack was down and out before the race had already begun. State wasn ' t ready to give up yet. Improving nearly two points over their score against Florida, they fought a tough battle all night long against a pesky Penn State squad, coming up short 190.575-190.625 to the Lions. The near-win would not come without penalty. Injuries inflicted during the match of the year would plague the Pack for the remainder of the season. The most devestat- ing of these injuries would be a strained Aachilles tendon dealt to junior Ashely Hutsell. Expected to play a large part of State ' s suc- cesses in the all-around competition, Hutsell was relegated to limited action on vault late in the season on her strongest event, vault. Missing one of their star gymnasts and coming off one of the most heartbreaking losses in recent memory, the Pack could have easily given up for the rest of the year. Who could blame them? In three weeks they would be facing defending-national champion Alabama and then traveling to the Georgia Dome to go toe-to-toe with the No.1 team in the country, the Georgia " Gym-Dogs. " But if the Pack gymnasts ever showed anything throughout the year the year it was a fight. Barring the collapse at Georgia, the Pack made steady improvement over the remainder of their meets. Stephanie Wall, a junior tri-captain, led the team by example, nailing consistently high scores on the bal- ance beam meet after meet. By the closing meets. State was posting team scores in the mid 190 ' s - solid marks by anoyone ' s stan- dards. Their highest score of the year came in the last meet of the year before the EAGL Championships , an away match against Michigan State. The Pack trashed the Trogans, scoring a new team record 195.975 to their 195.100. The Pack finished second out of the eight teams in the competition, falling only .9 of a point shy of No. 9 West Virginia. The regular season ended with the Pack ranked 19th in the country, perhaps not as high as Stevenson would have hoped, but a strong showing none-the-less. For seniors Bernstein and Heather Cicero, their final years in a gymnastics uniform could not have con- cluded on a higher note.

That was the question facing all of you Wolfpack fans. The undersized Wolfpack began suc- cessfully with their non-conference schedule going 9-1 to begin the season. But when the ACC regular sea- son came, the story was reversed. State lost it ' s first 8 games and found itself dwelling in the cellar of the ACC where it ended the previous year. However, State was not to be discouraged. After their first ACC victory over the sixth ranked Clemson Tigers, the attitude had changed. The Pack was Back! The resur- gence was noth- ing short of the emergence of the youngest coach in the ACC and his players will- ingness to work. Coach Herb Sendek came to NC State from Miami (Ohio) and it was clear his emphasis was on defense. Night after night State frustrated opponents with there swarming play and ended the season ranked among the top two defenses in the country. Any fan that came to see State knew they would see forty minutes of pressure defense without a letdown. However, the Pack took a major blow as start- ing center Damon Thornton went down with a season ending injury with a third of the season remaining. States defensive prowess was sure fall as the starting five sported no one taller than 6 ' 6 " . This was not the case, however, as fellow freshman Justin Gainey stepped in to fill Thornton ' s shoes and join Danny Strong, Ishua Benjamin, Jeremy Hyatt, and Clint " C.C. " Harrison in what was termed the " iron five " . From the game against Florida State, where the iron five played the firs t 39 minutes, it was clear that coach Sendek put the success of his basketball team on the shoulders of his starters. The Pack went on to rally ' and finish the ACC season going 4-4 poised to reek havoc on post season play! And onto the ACC tournament State marched as one of the " hottest " teams in the nation. To prove their recent success was no fluke. State became only the second eighth seed in ACC history to knock off the top seed in the end of the year tournament! State played their way into the championship after win- ning three games in less than 72 hours! So impressive was their showing that they were invited to partici- pate in the National Invitational Tournament (NIT). State reached the second round where they met a tough and talented West Virginia team. Although State struggled from the floor for the better part of the game, their defense kept them within striking distance. Down seven with only a minute to go State made its move. " Strong for 3! " " Benjamin for 3! " just two calls the public address announcer barked as sold out Reynold ' s trembled! But it was not to be. ..With less than four seconds, down by 3, Ishua Benjamin took a corner three that fell short and the iron five had run out of gas. But as the team walked off the floor there was no doubt the appreciation they earned from their fans. Even after the team had left, the chant of " NNNNN CCCCCC STATE, NC STATE " echoed through Reynold ' s Coliseum. In his first season, coach Sendek and his play- ers took themselves far beyond any expectations of those outside the team. The goal of any team, and player, is to play better today than yesterday. Not only did the Pack reach thi s goal, but they continued the winning tradition we have become accustomed.

Like all choir ensembles, the Men ' s Glee Club meets both semesters of each acade- mic year, and carries one academic credit.

Many freshmen audition for the choir and find themselves in some- thing that they stay dedicated to for the are music majors. The department does offer the opportunity to achieve an 18-hour music minnor, but many choose to be involved with the choirs or ensembles because it is a won- derful extracurricular activity. More than 2000 students are enrolled in various music classes, ranging from piano and voice classes to music history and appreciation. More than 550 stu- dents are active with the performing groups in which they do receive academic credit. rest of their college careers.

With the concentrated efforts of our people, this vision can become a reality very soon. Since that day in 1992 The Nubian Message has gone from a monthly publication to a weekly pub- lication that has totally and accurate- ly represented the African American population. The Nubian Message has served the campus community as well as the surrounding triangle area. With a staff of over 40 stu- dents, the Nubian Message not only produces a newspaper that has news, sports, culture, opinions, pho- tos, and health as its sections, but we also take a very active role in campus in the forms of attending lec- tures, conferences, and sponsor- ships.

It ' s the renovation of Mann Hall you ' re experienc- ing. The student chapters of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Associated General Contractors (AGO), Air and Waste Management Association (AWMA), and Chi Epsilon (XE) worked together to coordinate the fund raising efforts for this project. The engineering students of Mann Hall will undertake the task of ensuring that academic efforts of students and faculty are recognized and displayed for the purpose of inspiring others. Mann Hall was constructed by NC State in 1964 to provide a home for students pursuing a career in civil engineering. Since its construction, Mann Hall has prepared over 6800 civil engineers, in both undergraduate and graduate programs, for many diverse careers. Today, Mann Hall is home to civil, construction, and environmental engineer- ing programs. This long overdue renovation will foster the passion for engineering that Dr. Carroll Lamb Mann, the building ' s namesake, shared. The reno- vation of the entrance lobby and fourth floor student study area will focus on showcasing the past, pre- sent, and future academic achievements that are normally taken for granted in the classrooms, offices, and laboratories nestled within Mann Hall. The focus will be on education through displays, highlighting student and faculty papers, profession- al organizations, awards, projects, memorabilia, workplace opportunities, and academic programs. These focal points will stimulate interest in projects, provide recognition for hard work, and inform stu- dents of options available to them within the civil engineering department, by Jennifer Cesare 180 % NORTH CAROLINA STATE IJN..u.w. .

The Institute for Transportation Engineers (ITE) focuses on issues that affect our day to day travel. Established in the 1965-66 aca- demic year, this group of mainly civil engineers, both graduate and under- graduate, continues to educate them- selves at their monthly meetings by inviting dynamic industry speakers. One such speaker, Mark Sullivan from the Rail Division of the North Carolina Department of Transportation present- ed the specific challenges that rail- roads in North Carolina face. Other speakers present topics ranging from airport operations to traffic planning. The ITE actively recruits members to share their interest. Even though ITE is managed by the College of Engineering ' s, department of civil engi- neering, this organization does not limi its membership to civil engineering majors. Located in Mann Hall, the ITE meetings are easily accessible to any one with an interest in transportation. Membership is $10.00 per year — for the " food fund.

Continuing the work of the previous year, Student Government fought to have teacher evaluations made available to the students. The struggle paid off as teacher evaluations will be posted online so that all students can see exactly what students feel about their professors. Another victory for Student Government came in the form of the reduction of the Physical Education requirement. In a change in policy, students at NC State are only required to take two semesters of RE. instead of four. This new criteria also goes into effect for current students, as they are not required to finish school under the old policy. Student Government did not avoid the controversial subjects during its 1996-97 session either. In April, the Student Senate passed a resolution denouncing NC State ' s involvement in the construction of the proposed Centennial Arena. This facility, if built, would be located adjacent to Carter-Finley Stadium, and the arena would be the new home of the men ' s bas- ketball team. But Student Government did not only focus on matters of policy. Student Govenment made itself active in giving a helping hand to the surrounding communi- ty. The annual Feed Raleigh project, in association with the Raleigh Food Bank, raised over 4,100 pounds of food for vic- tims of natural disasters and the homeless.

BGLA, formerly the Lesbian Gay Student Union, has over the years thrived to educate the campus on sexual issues as well as unite the NCSU gay, lesbian and bisexual community. Their challenge has always been to fight homo- phobia on campus while also providing a safe, welcome environment for gay students to get together in fellowship. BGLA coordinates many activities over the school year to stay active. In October, BGLA takes part in the National Coming Out Day, a day in which gays, lesbians, and bisexuals all over the country are encouraged to feel free to be honest about their sexuality. BGLA supports all students ' choices whether to " come out " or remain " closeted " . Also, BGLA holds NCSU Gay Awareness Week in February. Awareness Week is has speakers, social events, and other activities to help the NCSU community better understand homosexuals and the issues they face in today ' s world. So, whether a gay, les- bian, bisexual, or allied student wishes to become active and involved in working for equality in the community, or just wants a safe, understanding place to talk about issues he she is facing, BGLA is the campus group most suited for that.

Since then, the international and US residents of Alexander have enjoyed cultural and social programming, dances, and international dinners, and have a daily open exchange of ideas. During the 1996- 97 academic year, Alexander was home to stu- dents from some 48 countries. Many of the friendships formed in Alexander extend well beyond residence hall walls, campus borders, and oceans to last a lifetime. The 1996-97 staff and hall council of Alexander International presented over 100 pro- grams aimed at enriching the lives of hall resi- dents. In September, residents joined in city clean-up efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Fran. In October, Alexander sponsored its annual Trick-or-Treat walk-through for the chil- dren of E.S. King Village. The remainder of the fall sem ester offered such activities as trail rid- ing, a visit to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, swing dancing, cook-outs, and community ser- vice projects. The spring semester brought a whole new atmosphere of cultural exploration with pro- grams featuring the Civil Rights Movement, African cuisine, Southern barbeque, Egyptian belly-dancing, and soul food. In February resi- dents frolicked on the snowy ski slopes of west- ern North Carolina, returning to Raleigh with only minor injuries. The year ended with a hugely successful clothing, food, and furniture drive for donation to local charities. 1 1 1 224 disorganizations Residents of Alexander Internationa] Theme Hall enjoy cul- tural and udy Cox on the night Mike Rehrig, Luis Cepeda, Alexander Hall painted the Free Brandon Speaks, Thomas Expression Tunnel.

While most academic honorariums are specific to colleges and depart- ments, Golden Key incorporates the entire uni- versity community. In order to attain member- ship, students must be in the top 15% of their junior class. Golden Key is considered a rela- tively new academic honor society. This year ' s induction was held on January 12th, 1997 with 444 new inductees. Two mem- bers, David Graham and Keith Centre, were recognized for outstanding academic achieve- ment and given scholarships from the Golden Key Foundation. Five honorary members were inducted: Dr. Robert Earnhardt, Dean of College of Textiles; Dr. Jon W. Bartley, Associate Dean for the College of Management; Joan J. Michael, Dean of Education and Psychology; Dr. Nino A. Masnari, Dean of College of Engineering; and Dr. Daniel I. Solomon, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. Golden Key works to provide information to its membership that will help prepare them as they exit the university and are incorporated into the work force or pursue other academic degrees. Like many other conscious organiza- tions on campus. Golden Key participates in the Adopt-A-Highway program. fS: M n D. 226 i Jl ' avid Graham receives $1000 in scholarships as he is recognized for scholastic achievement at the induction ceremony Organizations J ;l Old members paint the Free Expression Tunnel! to advertise the up and coming Induction cere- monies.

Photo cour- tesy of Aikido Club. 228 Organizati f V o is a traditional Japanese Martial Art based on the principal of non-resistance. It is a highly effective form of self-defense that does not require great size or strength to per- form because an attacker ' s own force is used against him or her. In Aikido we never resist the power of the attack head on. Instead, we yield and redirect the initia; attack using dynamic circular movements to unbalance the assailant. The attacker (or attackers) is then subdued using a variety of throws and joint-locking techniques, rather than potentially crippling punches or kicks. The objectives of Aikido are to unify mind, body and spirit, to harmo- nize the individual ' s ki (energy) and the ki of the universe, and to develop the ability to live naturally in a con- stantly changing world. Hence the name Ai-Ki-Do- " The way of harmony with the universal force. " Aikido is not a sport. There are no competitive tournaments. Since Aikido practice is done with a partner, you learn from others and help others learn from you. This creates an open, healthy spirit in the dojo (practice hall). In short, Aikido is good for your body, onsyour mind and your heart. And it ' s fun! The NCSU Aikido Club was cre- ated six years ago by Jeannette Congdon, chief instructor of the club, and Ralph Craig, a senior. Congdon Sense! holds the rank of nidan (2nd degree black belt). She has been practicing Aikido for 15 years. She studied Aikido under the direction of Rodney Grantham, Shidoin- the founder of the Aikido center of Atlanta. Ralph Craig began practicing Aikido at the University of Georgia, Athens and holds a rank of 3rf kyu. We are also lucky to have Chris Crandall as an instructor in our club. Crandall Sensei holds a rank of shodan or first degree black belt. He has practiced Aikido for eight years under the direction of Mitsunari Kanai, Shihan and in addi- tion to our club, teaches Aikido at his own dojo- Raleigh Aikido, located in Raleigh Athletic Club on Celebration at Six Forks Plaza. Both NCSU Aikido Club and Raleigh Aikido are affiliated with the United States Aikido Federation, East Coast region (USAF- East). Beginners are always welcome, feel free to stop by the class. The NCSU Aikido Club is open to students, faculty and staff.

Each year, AISES, along Society )f Native Americans and Native American Student Association sponsor vlative American Awareness Week vhich includes a traditional powwow, ; hich features dances, traditional cere- nonies, and Native American crafts. Jnfortunately, due to untimely rain, this ear ' s powwow was brought indoors nd attendance was lower than usual. Currently, NCSU offers a very lim- ited amount of Native American cours- es. The organization, led by the group ' s president, Alisa Hunt, has been encouraging the university to expand the curriculum. Through its educational pro- grams, AISES provides opportunities for American Indians and Alaska Natives to pursue studies in science, engineering, business and other acade- mic arenas. The trained professionals then become technologically informed leaders within the Indian community. Story courtesy of AISES.

You have achieved your objectives and received appropriate degrees in your fields of study. Along the path toward commencement, the Class of 1997 distinguished itself with many remarkable accomplishments. Among you are Caldwell Scholars, University Scholars, University Fellows, Teaching Fellows, Phi Beta Kappas, Phi Kappa Phis and All-American Student Athletes. Many of you brought honor to NC State because you conducted meaningful research, published scholarly articles, studied abroad to globalize your experience, found ways to bring your knowledge and talents to bear in the community, mentored fellow students, enriched us with your contributions to the arts, gave us proud moments on fields of athletic competition, and strengthened this institution with your leadership. We can rightfully boast that your class has produced an astoimding 43 valedictorians -- 13 in December and 30 more in May. In short, you went beyond the realm of what was expected and have achieved the extraordinary, thus becoming exceptionally educated individuals. There is no doubt that you have changed emotionally and intellectually in the course of pursuing your degrees. In a sense, you never quit growing, changing, or learning. You can look forward to a life of happiness and achievements and relationships, which will depend to a large degree upon your character. Recognizing who you are and what you stand for will continue to be part of the journey you began as a child. Each life experience becomes a milestone in that journey. I am confident that you will bring your knowledge and skills to bear in your professions and communities. You have the capacity to make a difference. We hope NC State has contributed in a positive way to this development, for it is our purpose to not only educate people, but to educate them so they vmderstand and accept their responsibilities as mature citizens.

A special thanks to the staffs of Technician and The Nubian Message for their help, cooperation, and patience in the production of this book. 2 ' V 3 18 Staff Recently. I heard the story of a guy named Larry who, several years ago, joined the armed forces in California. His goal was to become a fighter pilot. Unfortunately, Larry was unable to become a fighter pilot because he did not have the 20 20 eyesight that the armed forces requires of pilots. Determined to fly, Larry purchased several huge balloons, filled them with helium, and attached them to a lawn chair, then secured the whole contraption to his automobile until he was ready for liftoff. Lairy packed up a few sandwiches and his rifle and planned to spend a few hours floating around at a couple hundred feet, then he would slowly gUde back to earth by shooting out one balloon at a time. Good plan, huh? Well, Larry was ready to go. He strapped himself into his chair and detached himself from his car. But instead of floating slowly into the air, he shot up like a bullet straight into the clouds. He finally leveled off at 20,000 feet, or so. At that point, he was afraid to shoot out any of the balloons, because he figured that he would plummet back to earth just as fast. So, Larry just floated around for a few hours. Now remember, that this is a true story. Eventually, Larry floated into the air pattern of the Los Angeles airport. Soon enough, there was a jet that was cleared for landing. However, the pilot of the jet reportedly radioed the tower that he was not ready to land because he just passed some guy floating in the sky on a lawn chair holding a rifle! ! Imagine that radio conversation! Poor Larry was trapped. He couldn ' t land and when a rescue helicopter attempted to reach him, Larry was pushed out to sea by the wind disturbance created by the helicopter propellers. Finally, the helicopter was able to hover directly above Larry and his lawn chair and rescued him. When they landed, Larry was promptly arrested. As he was being led away, a news reporter asked Larry why he did it. Larry, turned, thought for a moment, and said " Well, a man can ' t just sit around ailday, can he? " Even though Larry did not completely succeed at his endeavor, we can all give him credit for trying and not " just sitting around all day. " He definitely did not take the easy way out. He set a goal and went out to achieve iti Certainly, it did not turn out exactly the way he had planned, but what in life does? Larry is a great role model for us in a world that gives us so many daily challenges. Larry is a believer, and even though he didn ' t succeed ths fy-st time, he went out and tried again because he believed in himself £ i f IF This AGROMECK is a book about North Carolina ' State University in the year 1997. A year when many things changed and many things stayed the same. But one thing prevailed over the course of the year, like Larry, the students of N.C. State believed in themselves and the university. Everyone should be proud to be part of a great Wolfpack tradition of beliefs. I sincerely appreciate all the help and guidance that has been afforded to me in the past year. May the coming year be as productive and challenging as the last. Jennifer C. Cesare Editor In Chief Staff Page 319 4f fi . - ' i I.
