W ' . T he year 1998 will forever be considered " the year in brick " at North CaroHna State University. This year, the university developed a new graphic iden- tity to symbolize the bricks that are abundant on this campus. This graphic identity is used to describe a consistent approach to the design of communication that the university uses in transmitting its primary mes- sages. It ensures that the university is easily identifi- able and memorable in its correspondence. The previous identity used on university corre- spondence, such as the block " S " and the diamond logo are considered symbols of school spirit and are no longer to be used on official university publications. The bell tower seal, previously the main symbol on let- terheads, will still be used on diplomas, fundraising pledges, and trustee reports, but will not be permitted on university letterhead or business cards. The new " brick looking " graphic image was unveiled after 18 months of study and discussion. NC State officials began thinking about the university ' s graphic after a consultant, Fred Volkmann, Vice Chancellor for public affairs at Washington University in St. Louis, said there was too much variation in its publications. His report was followed by focus groups that included prospective students, employers, and alumni. There also was a survey of 300 administrative and aca- demic units on campus and an audit of 850 examples of campus publications. The outside studies showed that it is important to identify the university first and the title of the pro- gram and a particular college affiliation second and third. On campus, people said they preferred a for- ward-looking graphic image rather than a traditional one. So, a steering committee took the opinions into consideration and came up with the recommended guidelines. " All communications from the university — regardless of their origin in academic or administrative units — benefit from primary identification with the parent institution, " according to Meredith Davis, a pro- fessor of graphic design who led the team of students, faculty, and administrators that undertook the project. The graphic identity project was funded by the Chancellor ' s Office and carried out by a faculty, staff, and student team. About $35,000 was budgeted for the project to fund faculty participation, purchase equip- ment that is still in use in the School of Design, and to finance student participation in the project. Similar graphic identity projects at other universities have cost many times this amount. The design work was conducted by Davis, who is an accomplished graphic designer. Davis worked with other faculty and students at the School of Design to analyze more than 850 pieces of printed and elec- tronic communication before beginning the design work. Focus groups of alumni, guidance counselors, parents of college-age students, potential students, and employers of NC State graduates were used to assess what kind of visual identifier would best suit the uni- versity. Discussions were also held with many campus groups and with the university ' s Public Affairs Advisory Council, composed of industry, business, and government and communication leaders. The council, as well as the Board of Trustees, the Board of Governors, and the university ' s Administrative Council have endorsed the project.

According to Hank Fiumara, director of univer- sity improvement programs, the focus now turns to how to beast achieve the four goals named in the initia- tive. These goals include increasing the presence and contributions of diverse groups, creating a working and learning environment where differences are welcomed and valued, incorporating diversity in a significant way into teaching, learning, and research, and making NCSU ' s commitment to diversity evident in all its operations. Fiumara said efforts are focused mainly on NCSU ' s climate and curriculum right now. In the area of climate, officials are exploring how to best increase appreciation of diversity. Currently officials are looking for an assessment instru- ment, such as a poll or survey, to ascertain the current understanding and appreciation for diversity on NCSU ' s campus. Changes in curriculum are being explored as well. " We are looking at how, in the instructional cur- riculum, we can introduce a means to enhance success and opportunity in both what is taught and how it gets taught, " Fiumara said. The officials ' interest lies in interactions that are taking place between faculty members and students, and between faculty members and other faculty mem- bers. Fiumara said increasing diversity awareness will be achieved through more than simply adding courses, like cultural or gender studies, to the curriculum. Awareness will also have to increase through " enhanc- ing the ability to communicate, to transfer knowledge in a manner that would allow all students to better receive it. " College is a learning experience, Fiumara point- ed out. Through a mix of both classroom education and life experience, Fiumara hopes appreciation of diversity will increase at NCSU. " You may have some students that come in here that will have some set patterns of behavior, but I guar- antee that they are not the same person when they leave that they were four or five years earlier, " said Fiumara. While Fiumara stressed the positive impact the diversity initiative would have on life at NCSU, Marcela Musgrave, president of the NCSU Latin American Students Association, seemed less .sure. " These are lofty ideals, but I don ' t know if any- thing is going to come out of it, " Musgrave said. Musgrave initially got involved because she felt the ' diversity planning ' was focusing too much on black-white relations. She wanted to make sure more came of it. Musgrave also said she did not feel it was ever clear where comments and concerns about the diversity initiative should be addressed when Fiumara and other officials asked for input back in October, 1997. Jacqueline Hills, president of the NCSU Asian Students Association, feels a diversity initiative is nec- essary and appropriate at a public university like NCSU. Hills believes the four goals seem fitting. She related the diversity initiative to the NCSU Asian Students Association. " We welcome diversity because we know that we are all different, " Hills said. Hills also thinks an increase in appreciation for diversity in the classroom is going to help students to better understand and relate to teachers and classes. Fiumara continues to emphasize the importance of members of the NCSU community becoming involved at an individual level. " I would hope that people would take an active role individually because there are things students can do individually to break down barriers and increase appreciation, " Fiumara said. Involvement is a matter of how active a students wants to be in his or her own growth. Fiumara said activities from volunteering for Habitat for Humanity to participating in the classroom can have aspects that will help increase awareness of diversity.

Engineering. The opening of the brand new Engineering Graduate Research Center (EGRC) on Centennial Campus will provide the College of Engineering with better facilities to work in, as well as hands-on research opportunities for students. This new addition on Centennial Campus is dedicated to graduate education and research. There are four departments within the complex: electrical, computer science, civil, and materials engineering. Students and faculty will now be able to do much-need- ed research there. The center will expand opportunities for the industry of engineering, said John Gilligan, the associ- ate dean of graduate education and research. The goal of NCSU is to move the entire College of Engineering to Centennial Campus in the next 15 to 20 years, which will allow easier access to state-of-the- art technology for the advancement of engineering, Gilligan said. " It ' s a new philosophy, " he added. " We want to integrate new research areas with graduate education and industry. " All equipment will be built by students and pro- fessors in the EGRC and will have an immense effect on the people of the state of North Carolina, as well as the rest of the world. The center will not only aid in the advancement of computer science, but it will also aid in benefiting the lives of all humanity. However, Gilligan is quick to point out that this is not the most important purpose of the facility. " The faculty and students out there are the main focus of this building. " Construction on the EGRC began in 1994 and the first tenants were ready to move in by the end of the school year of 1996. Dr. Nino A. Masnari, dean of the College of Engineering, presided over the dedication ceremony on October 24, 1997. The first state-funded engineering building at NC State in 30 years, the EGRC comprises a main lab- oratory building and the Constructed Facilities Laboratory. However, Gilligan said the project is still far from complete. " We need about three or four more buildings the size of this one to complete the movement of the department to Centennial Campus. With adequate funding and good transportation, this dream can become a reality. We believe that, out there, the engi- neering department can expand as far as is necessary to satisfy the demand of engineers in this country. " The complex houses a total of 20 research cen- ters.

Underneath all that, money earned from the Lawn Party helps out those in need. On Saturday, September 27th 1997, 115 pledges and brothers of Delta Sigma Phi pulled together to host the 34th annual Lawn Party. Held at Trinity Farms across from the State Fairgrounds for the 5th year, the popularity of Lawn Party attracted over 9,000 attendees, who come for the music, | drink, friends, and fun. The performers at this year ' s party included Leftover Salmon, Drivin ' N ' Cryin ' , and Sister Hazel, who all| had their own tour busses. The members of Sister Hazel had a concert in Tennessee on the night of Lawn Party, so the brothers of Delta Sig had a plane chartered for them to make it on time. Lawn Party was promoted by Satellite Promotions this year. Tickets were $12 and t-shirts were $10. Approximately $18,400 was raised by Lawn Party this year, 100% of which goes to charities within the Raleigh area. Of this money $7,000 went to the Frankie Lemmon School. Delta Sig also donated money to Wheelchair Athletes, as recently, an alumnus was in an accident and stricken to a wheelchair. Thanks to Jimmy Hansen of Delta Sigma Phi, for his help on this story. Lawn party is known for its music, dancing, and mostly as being a time when stu- dents can let loose and be themselves. Below: Two party goers gear up for the famous beer fun- nel.

State Fair excited people from all walks of life, and N.C. State played a role in the year ' s events by entering plenty of exhibits for fairgoers to enjoy. More than 22,000 exhibits were presented at the fair, including livestock shows, crops, fruits and vegetables, forestry and 4-H and Future Farmers of America club projects. There were also exhibits on honeybees, flowers, fine arts, and photogra- phy. Craft exhibits and nightly fireworks were also presented. The NCSU Agronomy Club had exhibits illustrat- ing the value of land use and crop management at the N.C. State Fair. The booths focused on soy- beans, com, forages, peanuts, tobacco, cot- ton, turf, small grain, land use, and waste management. NCSU ' s Cooperative Extension Service also had an exhibit at the fair, along with N.C. A T State University. While at the fair, people could enjoy a visit to the NCSU Dairy Bar. The Food Science Club sells ice cream every year made in the dairy plant in Schaub Hall. The proceeds from sales went to support the club ' s activities. Along with the many booths and exhi- bitions, the fair also had the traditional cotton candy, games, and rides that attracted the young at heart from all over North Carolina. Not even rainy days could hold back the fairgoers from enjoying this annual event. by Nicole Bowman m Student Life » -. 1 t M ' V Harvey ' .,. - ' »? v ilisv " ' . viV.

State get to show ojf their theatrical ability at Th ompson Theater Studem What does Reynolds Coliseum have to do with Thompson Theater? Before Reynolds Coliseum was built in 1957, the gym was Thompson Gym, known today as Thompson Theater. With the build- ing of the coliseum came the birth of Thompson Theater and its first play, " Antigone, " performed in 1964. Although remnants of a gym still lexist, Thompson Theater is today a student-volunteer run organization, where Ifour major plays are produced every year. Volunteers also bring life to the [famous Madrigal Dinner every year with assistance from the Price Music Center. For those interested in theater, but not wanting to take center stage, hompson Theater also offers students the opportunity to get involved with |make-up, lighting, sound, stage design, costume design, and other technical laspects that go into creating a production. Auditions for shows are open to all [current N.C. State students. Amy Cox, a junior in communications and an avid theatrical participant, Ithinks that Thompson Theater is a great place to have the opportunity to learn labout all aspects of working on the stage, even if that is not what you want to do [with the rest of your life. T enjoy being a part of some of the things that go on here at Thompson ITheater, and the people you interact with here are truly wonderful and talented Ipeople, " Ms. Cox said. Besides Thompson Theater being solely a home to those in the performing larts, the basement of Thompson Theater is also home to the Crafts Center of N.C. [State. Here, students, as well as members of the public, can take classes learning low to to do many craft related things, including make pottery, paint, or learn |how to take great pictures. All of these things can be done for a very small fee. In all, Thompson Theater offers a wide range of activities for those who are linterested in the arts. If performing is not for you, take on an activity at the Craft JCenter. But if you like to be under the spotlight,curtains come up, lights are on land attention is directed to center stage, as students from N.C.

Student Life tewart Theater Stewart Theater, located in Talley Student Center, is the spot for a showcase of musical talents at N.C. State. Each year, per- formers put on a wide variety of dif- ferent shows for all varieties of music lo vers to enjoy. Performers this year included a jazz band and orchestra as well as j some off campus J bands brought in by various organiza- tions. Tickets to events at Stewart Theater can be bought at ' icket Central in the Talley Student Center. Students have the idvantage of reduced ticket prices for some of the events. Many consider the presence of Stewart Theater to be a great [advantage to exploring musical interests due to the variety of per- formances that take place. Many of N.C. State ' s musical groups, iuch as those involved in Women With Voices and A Cappology )erform in Stewart Theater. The presence of a musical theater on campus offers students interested in music a chance to experience concerts without paying the prices of those places off campus, such as at the Symphony or the Opera. It also allows students within our community to show )ff their musical abilities. Other events have occurred in Stewart Theater as well. The ell known " Camivalito " took place in Stewart Theater this year. It was a Latin style festival with a live band and area for those to jxperience latino-style dancing. It gave students a chance to be a )art of cultural exchange as Latin natives taught the inexperienced lancer a few moves. Many who came for the music and atmos- )here sat back and enjoyed the show. All things considered, Stewart Theater is just one of the lany facets of N.C. State that allows those within our community to explore areas of that arts that might otherwise go left intouched.

Stevens Ultimate All Night Bash m On Friday, March 27, 1998, the Union Activities Board held its annual Ultimate AllNight Bash in the Talley Student Center. The event, with the theme of " Clowning Around All Night, " was held from 8pm - 2am. The event, which is the largest the UAB hosts, was a huge success. Attendees paid a $1 entrance fee, or brought 2 canned food items, and got to enjoy all activities inside for free. These activities included large carnival games of sumo wrestling, jousting and bungee run, a social dance workshop, fortune tellers, palm reading, clowns, caricatures and instant tat- toos. A DJ was also spinning out music to create a " club " type atmosphere. Free food and drinks also came along with admission. For those who prefer a relaxed atmosphere, there was a coffeehouse in the basement with a jazz band and several a cappella groups performing. This year ' s ' bash was organized primar- ily by Akira Morita, UAB ' s vice president. Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity, and Circle K had volunteers help out with the event. As the AllNight Bash is an annual event, most of the money to support costs come from student fees. The entrance fee also went to help defraying some of the cost. Canned foods donated went to various chari- ties. Student Life Centennial Campus The future is taking shape on the NC State Centennial ICampus surrounding Lake Raleigh, adjacent to the current NC Sate campus. The Centennial Campus will include 12 academic clusters, a new concept that incorporates an edu- cational center with corporate, service, recreation and resi- dential centers nearby. A championship-caliber golf course is planned, and three cross-country trails were opened [recently. In only 10 years since its inception, NC State ' s [Centennial Campus is rapidly emerging as a mixed-use aca- demic village for corporate, government and university part- nerships in research and development. Faculty and stu- dents on the 1000-acre campus already have attracted more than $100 million in funding for collaborative research pro- Ijects. Architecturally, the campus will be a carefully planned Imix of university and private facilities. Already, NC State ' s world-famous College of Textiles has moved into its new facility on Centennial Campus, becoming the first education- lal hub in the initial academic cluster. Centennial Campus gives NC State limitless opportu ni- |ties to expand and broaden its worldwide appeal. The National Weather Service and Bayer are among [the many companies and services that have offices in the beautifully built buildings on Centennial Campus. Beyond the classroom, students can enjoy a snack at the Shuttle Inn or Century Shop, a stroll across the grassy greens of the courtyard, or a stop at the Textiles library on Centennial |Campus. The Wolfline, NC State ' s transportation system, runs [frequent stops between main campus, fraternity court, and [park and rides over to Centennial Campus. For those looking for a peaceful, scenic college campus jatmosphere, Centennial Campus is the place to be.

Built in 1952, with two book stacks towers added on in 1971 and 1989, D.H. Hill offers stu- dents, faculty, and the public over 2.6 million volumes of books, journals, and other publications. There are over 4.6 mil- lion microforms available in D.H. Hill library. D.H. Hill offers many services to the students beside just a place to study. A computer lab on the second floor allows students to do work in a quiet environment. There is also a research computer lab on the first floor, where students can search various databases to find schol- arly journal articles. At these computers, students can also hook up to the libraries in other area universities to see what research materials they may have that will be of use. There is also a video room, where students can view videos as a class, and often times by themselves so that they can control the set- tings. Many students enjoy the small rooms they can work in with groups. The library provides an easy meeting place, and a place with- out too many distractions to keep students working seriously. Upon entering the library, one can notice the long tables that stretch from wall to wall. This is perhaps the most popular place in the ibrary, for the reason that students can whisper quietly with friends and work partners to get projects and homework assignments turned in on time. The couches on the ground and first floors are also popular places to find students, especially during exam fimes. It is almost inevitable that you will see many students taking naps on these couches. There re probably even some who sleep there all night, just to be sure they on ' t miss the deadline the next morning. For those who want complete seclusion, D.H. Hill offers this as ell. With 9 floors, and study cubicles in all comers, it is easy to find he perfect niche to meet your studying needs. A popular place for students to study in groups has become the first floor of the library, where the tables are spacious cnou " h to work. Riggsbee Two students take advantage of the quiet in D.H.

Stevens Stevens The Wolfline is the link for some from school to home, and helps to alle- viate some of the parking problems that plague our university. m Student Life The Wolfline is the North CaroUna State University transportation system, which provides many students and faculty alike, a means of maneuvering throughout the NC State communi ty. With the new logo appearing on campus, the Wolfline also got a new face this year with the new university logo painted on the sides of all buses. The Wolfline runs six different routes: from Avent Ferry, Centennial Campus, Fraternity Court, the Veterinary School, Kmart, a night service and park and rides. Many students rely on the Wolfline to get to and from school, especially those who live in apartment complexes close to campus. Parking permits are scarce and costly. The Wolfline is the answer to find- ing transportation for these students. Any student who possesses a valid NC State identification card is permitted to ride the Wolfline, free of charge. Wolfline buses operate Monday thru Thursday between 7am and 1 1:20 pm and on Friday from 7am until 8:20 pm. Last year, a newly added Campus shuttle added service throughout the campus from Monday to Friday, 7:30 am to 5:30 pm. Although the service the Wolfline provides is essential to some, there are gripes within the system. A printed schedule of Wolfline arrivals and departures from its scheduled stops can be found at Student Information. Many complain that the buses do not adhere to their schedules very well and either pass by earlier than expected or leave students waiting extra time. Many also complain of the unannounced breaks that many drivers take with a load full of passengers on the bus. However, all things considered, without the Wofline and its faithful drivers, many would end up " footing it " to the places they need to go. A walk over to Centennial Campus from Main Campus would take 15 min- utes, while the Wolfline can get you there in 5, albeit maybe not on time. For those students who reside off campus and don ' t have cars or parking permits, the ways of the Wolfline are a necessity, even if the bus arrives a little late.

State ' s fall graduation on December 12, as well as received her own diploma. Life ' m From the time she was able to read, Hayes has been groomed for this Imoment. With coaching and support from her parents, Hayes is no stranger to llarge crowds. When Hayes was a child, her mother would insist that over summer vacation jshe write a poem, as well as practice the piano every day. " I enjoyed writing and playing the piano from a very young age. For every Imisspelled word in one of my poems, my mother made me write it 10 times so I [would never forget, " Hayes said. Once she entered Apex High School, Hayes ' talents for writing really began Ito soar. She obtained a job at the Apex Herald as a Sports Editor her senior year, land won many press awards while employed there. In 1995, she won first place jSports Column, second place Sports Reporting, and third place Sports Feature. Upon graduating from high school, Hayes decided to attend N.C. State and [major in English - Language, Writing, Editing - with a minor in music. She received the Ausley Scholarship for $1000, and a music scholarship for $4000 from Ithe N.C. Women ' s Club. Throughout her years here, Hayes accomplished many things. One of her )oems, entitled " Kohler Campbell, Upright Piano, " was published in Windhover IMagazine. She has also given many concerts playing the piano on campus as well as |off. ' The music department has really helped me in my development as an artist, hey should definitely not go unnoticed, " Hayes said. Hayes got a job as a freelance writer at the Cary News and did her internship at |the North Carolina Museum of Art. She helped write press releases and edit the web )age. This has turned into a full-time job. She worked there for four months after [graduation. Hayes also plans to tour Europe for a month before beginning graduate school. The school she will be attending is currently unknown, but she hopes that it Will be UNC-Wilmington. " I love the beach, " she said. Hayes plans to get her Master of Fine Arts in creative writing and become a pro- fessional writer while working for a newspaper to support herself. " When I got the call that I had received the honor to speak at graduation, I immediately began jumping up and down. I was very excited, " Hayes said. She received the call from Martha Welch, the University Registrar, after she gave her speech before a group consisting of students and faculty. She was among 10 |other seniors who tried out, all of whom had to obtain two letters of recommendation to be considered. " I was very shocked that I won. Everyone else looked so together, and I felt rather inadequate, " Hayes said. Apparently she was not. Hayes ' speech lasts five minutes, and is considered to be a motivational speech encouraging graduates that " it is time to take action. " As graduation day approaches, many students are excited, nervous and scared, however, Tammy Hayes is felling confident and ready to take on the world. by Lynn Allen w f t jtSC ar ey Above: Students proceed into Reynolds Coliseum during Fall Graduation 1997.

State sopho- more, and her mysterious disappearance last June has touched the NCSU students who knew her best, as well as those who never even saw her. During the weekend of Jan 9-11, with the help of Park Scholars, volunteers from the School of Design and Modaferri ' s sister, Allison, the rest of the nation had a chance to hear the story. On Jan 9, volunteers handed out flyers and yellow ribbons in the Brickyard. Students were asked to wear them in support of Kristen ' s family in hope of Kristen ' s safe return home. The volunteers also handed out the ribbons before the nationally televised men ' s basketball game on JanlO. " Our main goal, our main purpose, is to get national attention on ESPN. Maybe someone will recognize [Kristen ' s picture] or will have seen her. All it takes is one person. We also want more students to jump on the bandwagon, to ask questions, " said Terrell Russel, a Park Scholar. The January campaign to expose Kristen ' s story was part of a long series of efforts by the Modafferi family and the community since her disappearance. Kristen Modafferi arrived in San Francisco on June 1, 1997, hoping to enjoy living on her own and supporting herself. She made arrangements to attend a photography course at Berkeley and a dance class at the area YMCA. She was discovered missing on June 24, never making it to her first class at Berkeley. No one has seen or heard from her since. The Modafferi family has continued its efforts to get Kristen ' s picture on as many of the San Francisco media as possible. " Over Christmas break, my entire family went back to California, and we had a lot of contact with the local papers and radio, " said Allison Modafferi, a senior at NCSU. " We also visited the missing children ' s organiza- tions that are helping us tell Kristen ' s story. We get new leads every day and the detectives check them all. So far, nothing has panned out, but still, we check them all. " During the fall semester, the Park Scholars began thinking of an event to raise the level of knowledge of Kristen ' s disappearance. Before the Christmas holiday, the scholars met and planned the ribbon distribution in the Brickyard. Chancellor Monteith and head basketball coach Herb Sendek and his staff agreed to wear the yellow rib- bons at the Jan 10 basketball game. Organizers feel this made more of a reason for broadcasters from ESPN to take note and give publicity to the search for Kristen. " What we are trying to do is get Kristen ' s picture out there. We believe, no we know that one person has to know something. That ' s all we need, " said Allison.

" Through the efforts of so, man, we have achieved great accomplishments, and many more remain ahead, " he told those gathered in the Centennial Campus Brickyard. " But we are today at a smooth stretch of the road in our rise to the peak of opportunity, and the best time to change drivers is when you have reached a smooth stretch in the road. I am today announcing my retirement, to take effect when the search process is complete and President Broad has named my successor. " Monteith cited three rea- sons as to why he has chosen to retire. He said he wants to retire by the time he reaches 65 next August. Furthermore, there will be no turnover on the Board of Trustees until 1999, and Monteith said seasoned board members can work together better to find candi- dates to replace him. Also, he said he would be unable to find the leadership needed to meet the milestones that lie ahead for the next decade. " Now, I would enjoy providing the lead- ership to reach the milestones ahead. They ' d be attractive to anyone, " he said. " But reaching them, and the ones beyond them, requires a chancellor who can make a longer commitment than my age allows. " The Board of Trustees formed a 12- member search committee to recommend candidates for the chancellor position to UNC System President Molly Broad. The commit- tee will screen and identify people for the position. Then its recommendation will be taken to the UNC System for approval. N.C.

State Facilities and Operations to create " Greenspace, " a relaxation area to be located outside of D.H. Hill Library. The project, chosen by the Senior Class Council, will be located between the new and old entrances on the Brickyard side of the library. Due to the location, southern exposure will give students a warm, sunny area to converse with friends or to just relax between classes. The patio, in addition to containing flowers and shrubs, will also include an engraved plaque to remind future students of the goodwill of the Class of 1998. NCSU, through the Department of Facilities and Operations, proved its generosity by agreeing to match the amount raised by the Senior Class Council. The project is estimated to cost about $12,000 and should be completed by the end of the spring semester. Jamie Davis, assistant director of planning and research for NCSU libraries said, " This project is great because it will benefit students across all disciplines. The library is always thrilled to have the support of our students - this is the fifth senior class gift that we ' ve been awarded. From the Class of 1989 Reading Room to this Class of 1998 Greenspace, it ' s obvious that with their help, we ' re improving our campus resources for the benefit of all students. " Josh Hawn, senior class president, added that " the Senior Class Council wanted to choose a project that would leave a permanent impression on the uni- versity. We wanted to be sure that in 60 years, future NCSU students would be able to enjoy the product of the commitment of the Class of 1998. And since we felt that campus aesthetics were an obvious weakness to the university, the Class of 1998 Greenspace should being to remedy this shortcoming. " The Senior Class Council held an event to rec- ognize and publicize the project on January 22 at the future site of Greenspace. by Kris Larson Features 53 Stevens Alexander International Residence Hall is home to students from more than 35 different coun- tries.

Features 55 Let it Snow.., Students who were in town over the holiday weekend that commemorates Martin Luther King JR. took joy not only in the vacation time away from the classroom, but they awoke only to be greeted by snow. This time, unlike last year, it stayed around long enough to be enjoyed. For the first time since the 1995-96 school year, N.C. State ' s campus was blanketed with a sheet of white flurries. It was time to dust off the snow sleds, hats, gloves and boots and head outside for fun. Numerous on- campus residents could be seen outside building snowmen, hav- ing snow ball fights, and making snow angels. Becca Causey, a sophomore and resident of Alexander Residence Hall, enjoyed the day outside with friends. " It was the first time since I ' ve been at State that I got to enjoy snow. We had a great time building snowmen and having snow ball fights, " she said. Weather forecasters predicted the Raleigh area would be hit hard by the snowfall. Local residents quickly took action by stock- ing up on necessary food items, salting driveways, and putting snow chains on car tires. Many area grocery stores ran low on milk and bread items during this time period. However, luckily the snow was light and did not cause too many problems. For the most part, roads were easily accessible. When students returned from their weekend away, most of the snow had melted. But, at least it stayed around long enough to be enjoyed.

Molly Corbett Broad. The ceremony, which was held in Reynolds seum, formally installed the first woman ever to head the UNC system. Bedecked in full academic garb, a procession of chancellors, faculty and others led Broad to her inaugural stage, where she professed " With hope, humility and ] high expectations, I embrace the privilege to serve as the 15th president of the University of North Carolina. " Broad proposed a rousing agenda for her presidency, promising North Carolinians " educational access and opportunity to all segments of our population, " affordable higher education and a strong partnership with the public schools. Invoking the memory of the founders of North Carolina ' s first public university and her more immediate predecessors, William Friday and CD. Spangler Jr., who joined Broad onstage, the new president announced that their work was " far from done. " " How do we translate strength and foresight embod- ied in our history into the capacity to meet the challenges of the future? " Broad asked. Broad stated that, in order to meet the " three-part mission of the quintes- sential American university - teaching, research and service, " several issues mu$t be confronted. Noting that N.C. ' s college attendance trails the national average. President Broad challenged the audience to raise the college-going rate. In qrder to do this, she said, issues of cost, financial aid and inclusiveness must be addressed. i " Today, the imperative to extend affordable higher education to all the state ' s people who can benefit from it has never been greater. " Broad said. ; Broad also focused a great deal of her remarks on the need for better pre- pared and more teachers. " A second imperative for UNC is that we redouble our commitment to the pubdic schools, " she said. j Broad ' s commitment to education is obvious from her career history. A PhiJBeta Kappa graduate of Syracuse University, Broad became a part of its jv " ft in 1971 . She later joined the California State University system and was ' " - iiL n promoted to the executive vice chancellor of the nation ' s largest senior system of higher education. 1 Above: Right: Molly Broad speaks during her inauguration ceremony at NC State. Below: The great seal of the University of North Carolina schools Pride in the Pack ;j Feav Even though NC State students come from all over North Carolina, the United States and the world, they are all linked together by a common thread - their love for the Wolfpack. It is this undying pride that they take in their school that has helped develop a number of traditions when it comes to enjoying the Wolfpack ' s success on the playing field. Whether taking in a game at Carter-Finley or Reynolds Coliseum, one of the first things a fan sees is a packed house bathed in red and white. However, these weren ' t always the university ' s col- ors. These colors were adopted in 1895, replacing the old standards of pink and blue. One of the finest traditions at NC State is the Wolfpack National Championship cheerleading team. The Pack cheerleaders last won the national title in 1991, giving NC State three championships. " Yell leaders " first appeared on the NC State sidelines around the turn of the century, but their cheers were a far cry from the vaults and pyramids the men and women in red and white now perform. Another more recent innovation is the appear- ance of " Mr. and Mrs. Wuf at all the team ' s games. The mascots are often seen cheering on NC State, greeting the Wolfpack ' s younger fans, harassing mascots for opposing schools and being " surfed " through the stands. Prior to the emergence of Mr. Wuf in the 1970 ' s, the cheerleaders used live wolves or almost anything else they could find. For one year, 1947, students operated a " robot " wolf at football games.

Stevens w Features Camping Out Dedicated Wolfpack fans stand long days and nights of winter ' s bitter cold camped out along West Dunn Avenue, waiting for the ticket booth to open to receive tickets to pop- ular State basketball games. During basketball season, the campers set up home base across the street from Reynolds Coliseum, often stretching down the street. These supporters of the Red and White are determined to get tickets, and good seats, to basketball games. Most important are the games against local rivals, Duke and Carolina. Campers pass the time away throw- ing frisbees and footballs, playing cards and Gameboy, and some even take the time to do schoolwork. Seasoned campers have found ways to set up televisions in their temporary homes. Traditionally, the camp area begins to fill up two days before tickets are given out. Some extreme fans begin to set up their tents even sooner. Many enjoy the opportunity to spend time with their friends and to show off their school spirit. After days of battling the cold and harsh sleeping conditions, fans walk through the doors of Reynolds on game night, tickets in hand, ready to cheer on their beloved Pack. Memories in hand, they can ' t wait for next season, and a chance to do it all over again. Stevens Friends pass the time watch- ing the TV they have man- aged to set up in front of their tent. One camper passes the time play- ing Gameboy. Tri Towers When walking through Central Campus, per- haps the most noticeable trio of buildings is the Tri- Towers residence halls. These co-ed, suite style halls have come to be called ' Tri-Tovvers " due to the three adjoining buildings of Metcalf, Carroll, and Bowen Residence Halls. Built in 1968, these halls are occu- pied mainly by co-ed, first year students. Carroll is recognized as the first residence hall established for women on the campus of North Carolina State University. It is named for the first woman to be a matron of the infirmary. Today, it houses the Women With Voices program. Central Campus is the focal point of student living on campus and the establishment of these first year residence halls gives newcomers to college a chance to fully experience residential life their first year away from home. A new addition to the Tri-Towers next year will be air conditioning. University housing has been working hard to prepare for the installation of a new centralized air conditioning system that is slated to be completed before students move in for the Fall semester 1998. Some advisors for first year college students also have their offices in these buildings on the lower floors. One of the greatest advantages of the Tri-tow- ers is its position on campus and its proximity to many buildings. Tucker beach is also just a few steps from the doors of the Tri-Towers. Some say the biggest disadvantage is when the elevators are broken and students must climb the many floors of stairs to get to their room. However, this small inconvenience is highly outweighed by the fact that students new to the col- lege scene have a chance to live close to others who are going through they same new experiences and they can help each other out. fN Above and Left: A view from the outside.

With a bier stein in one hand, food in the other, singing, danc- ing and laughing with friends, you are sure to have a good time. ' .:- r ' ' cyj Hal Although Oktoberfest has come to be a tradition that conjures images of German food, beer and dancins, the first Oktoberfest was a celebration of the wedding of Princess Theresa of Bavaria and Crown Prince Luitpold I. Held in Munich, Germany, in October 17, 1810, the wedding anniversary is celebrated every year, traditionally from the end of September until the first week of October. As Germans immigrated to the United States, they brought their tradition with them, in a much smaller form. However, some cities around the United States are trying to compete with the magnificent festivals Germans put on in their coun- try. Munich, the site of the first Oktoberfest and host to the largest Oktoberfest every year, serves approximately 10 million pints of beer to its fes- tival-goers. Beyond that, over 800,000 German sausages and bratwursts are consumed along with the over 700,000 roasted chickens. In the United States, cities such as Cincinatti (which re-names itself " Zinzinnati " during this period), Denver, Poughkeepsie, New York and Amana, Iowa put on grand festivals of their own. Many vendors set up shop through the towns, selling German food and beer, while participants dance and sing near the musical stages. Traditional beer for the Oktoberfest is similar to that which was made for the wedding of the Princess and Prince in October of 1810. This beer was a reddish- amber Marzen beer, that was usually brewed in the early part of the year and kept in cold barrels for 3 to 4 months before serving in the early fall. Today, beer at Oktoberfest is a bit lighter in color and alcoholic content. Traditional beers include Lowenbrau, Beck ' s, and Hofbrau, among others. American and Canadian companies have joined the festivities, creating their own style of Oktoberfest beer. These include Samuel Adams and Stoudt ' s. In Raleigh, Cameron Village is the setting for Oktoberfest, and the area turns into a Germantown, full of vendors and entertainment, something for everyone to enjoy. There is music and dancing. People are dressed in costumes. You can find every type of beer. And there is every type of German food imaginable. Wursts, sausages, sauerkraut and onions, roasted chickens.

Features p ' | Carolina Hurricanes On June 16, 1997, the Carolina Hurricanes released their team logo and colors to an anxious crowd at the Raleigh Sheraton. Owner Peter Karmanos and general manager Jim Rutherford proudly presented North Carolinians with their first NHL hockey team. Their colors are red and black, with the logo of a hurri- cane swirl and a hockey puck as the eye. Red, black and silver streaks sur- round the eye of the storm, creating a " C " for Carolina. The old identity of the Carolina Hurricanes was the Hartford Whalers. They were moved from there as they were the lowest revenue generating team in the NHL, and league members decided something needed to be done about it. With the new sophisticated look of the logo, instead of the cartoon ones that many owners and managers are steering away from, Karmanos and Rutherford have high hopes for their new team. The 1997-98 season proved hopeful for the Hurricanes, and in the coming year, they will be moving into the new sports area here in Raleigh, and sharing it with the NC State Wolfpack teams. Currently, the Carolina Hurricanes play in the Greensboro Coliseum Complex and in the current Raleigh Sports arena. Paul Maurice is the current head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes as he has been since 1996. Prior to that, from 1995-96, he co-coached with Paul Holmgren. The teams marketing strategy was to get out and meet the people and the town: to be everywhere, and be glad about being there. Many players did this at events such as Live after Five, giving away free autographed t- shirts, telling jokes, and loving every minute of it.

Railroad tracks run through NC State ' s campus, causing there to be a split the academic buildings on the north side and the residential build- ings on the south side. The main idea behind the establishment of the free expression tunnel was that it would deter students from spray painting and leaving student graffiti on other buildings. Most of NC State is made of red brick, and if ruined by spray paint- ing, it would be very expensive to replace. The faculty, and students, at State have come to like the Free Expression tunnel. The faculty like it because, for the most part, students keep their graffiti within the walls of the tunnel. The students like it because they have a place to legally put their art or messages without having to be harassed or chased away. Students also like it because it gives them a way to get their message out. Almost everybody who passes through the free expres- sion tunnel reads what is written on the walls, floors, ceilings, and even light fixtures. Therefore, putting an advertisement in the free expression tunnel is a sure-fire way to make sure that people know about what is going on. Reaction to some " free expressions " are not always taken well though. It is not appropriate to put profanities on the wall or to write derogatory statements at a group of peo- ple. Many faculty members have raised the issue of students painting on the steps and entrance to the tunnel. A solution to this has been to put up signs that say where you can and can- not paint. For the most part, painters have been respectful of these wishes. All in all, the free expression is a great way to get your message out, and to let the student body see what your artistic ability is like. And more then anything, it keeps the campus of NC State, almost, graffiti free. ■ J I 9 K pV S|gK H P jH F « _ ■ m ' ' . iifljViV i HHsk l r :r B fll ■• .

A new on-line journal brings together several disciplines across the NCSU campus to bring technology to middle schools. Once again, NC State has pioneered an emerging technology. This time, a wide array of disciplines has collaborated to create Meridian - a middle school computer technolo- gy journal. Its goal, in the words of its editors, is " to introduce educators to the reality and possibilities of applying the latest technol- ogy and learning in the middle school classroom. " " ( , Through strong teamwork. Meridian has been developed by the minds of several disciplines across the campus. Curriculum instruction, mathematics, science, tech- nology education, psychol- ogy, computer science, graphic design and English are just a few of the fields from which its collabora- tors have come. The journal has also received help from the University Attorney ' s Office and D.H. Hill Library. Hands-on research, games, video hotlinks, book excerpts, and commentaries make the journal as interactive as possible. Modeled after the Harvard Educational Review, Meridian is a pioneer in electronic pub- lishing. It exists as an entirely student-run elec- tronic journal. A review board comprised of graduate students from various fields meets monthly to bring the journal together. With the help of the University Attorney ' s Office, the journal has obtained copy- right agreements and the library has helped arrange electronic publication and archival issues. The first issue was published January 1, 1998. The second issue debuted in June. With a middle school planned for Centennial Campus, the initiative is geared close to home where the issues are ever present. Another goal is to make the information and technology accessi- ble. Since it is on the World Wide Web. teach- ers across the country can read Meridian for free. The integrated lessons that comprise Meridian draw from everyone ' s expertise. Cheryl Mason, a social studies education major and editor of the Meridian, said, " The creative process the Meridian is going through is just as valu- able as our end project. By collaborating togeth- er across the disciplines, we step into the elec- tronic media. " Studies have been conducted showing how middle school students develop more and and do better on school studies after integration with various disciplines have been introduced into the classroom. Meridian ' s origins take root in this very philosophy and will continue to do so. The journal can be viewed on-line at http: meridian. Dr. Joan J.

P ine pollen is not to blame for aller- gies. It ' s allergy season, and sufferers have the blooming trees and plants on campus to thank. Springtime symptoms of a runny nose and watery, itchy eyes mean only one thing to dents like Josh Collins— allergies. Collins, a sopho- more in botany, knows the pattern well. He experiences these symp- toms " from the first bloom of anything until June or so. " " Anything that ' s starting to flower is start- ing to produce pollen, " Robert Bardon, assistant professor of forestry and extension forestry spe- cialist at NC State said. Many people blame spring allergies on the pine pollen that coats cars and roads with a layer of yellow dust. However, pine pollen is not to blame for most people ' s allergies, according to Bardon. " The smoothiness of the pine pollen is one reason for this, " Bardon said. Under a microscope, pine pollen parti- cles are smooth and have no spiny appendages. " They look like Mickey Mouse, " a sphere with two smooth attachments, Leigh Johnson, professor of botany and curator of NCSU ' s Herbarium, said. The real culprits of spring allergies are broadleaf trees that flower in early spring, Bardon says. Oak and birch pollen, when looked at under a microscope, is spiny, said Jennifer Floyd, assistant curator of the Herbarium. The level of these pollens in the air cor- relates to the severity of the allergic reactions. A tree produces more pollen when it is under stress. When a tree is competing with other trees for water and nutri- ents from the soil, it may produce more pollen as a reproductive strategy. Also, more pollen is in the air when the weather is windy or dry. Ragweeds, which flower later in spring and early summer, also produce potent aller- genic pollens. Around 25 percent of the U.S. population experiences some aller- gic reaction to pollens or molds. The symptoms are caused by the immune system ' s response to these sub- stances in the body. Symptoms can range from mild to more severe, as with Collins. He has suffered from allergies since he was eight years old, often missing school as a result. Now all Collins can do is take his med- ication and wait for the spring pollen season to end. Forest Resources 87 AWARDS FOR ACM 38 Forestry Kyle Collins Joseph Shimel Timothy M.

Methany 4 Forest Resources 89 COLLEGE OF ENGINEER Story by Allison Ballard Photos by David Thompson and College of Engineering S tate ' s robot gets gold medal. NC State Electrical Engineering and Design Students work together to create Thumper, an assistant in the setup of lunar habitat models. The work of NC State ' s engineering and design students may find its way to the moon. In April, NCSU sent 1 1 members of the student team HELIOS -- Habitat Exploration Leaders in Outer Space — to the Space ' 98 Conference in Albuquerque, NM. In New Mexico, they faced other teams in competition designed by NASA to use remote-controlled vehicles to set up lunar habitat mod- els. The NCSU team was " the first team in six years to completely solve the mission from beginning to end, " said Jason Janet, doctorate student in electri- cal and computer engineer- ing and long-time advisor to the project. HELIOS ' robot. Thumper, off-loaded itself from a model lunar lander an then unloaded equip- ment needed to set up the habitats. It dragged the habitat module into position and placed the con- tainment shield over it. Completing the last step Thumper ' s front-end loaded filled with the con- tainment shield with the sand. On the moon, lunar soil would provide insulation and radiation protection for astronauts living in the habitat. HELIOS has been improving Thumper ' s design, building replacement parts, and working out problems as they arose since last fall. The students spent much of their free time working on the project. However, it all paid off when HELIOS took first place at the competition. ' ' It was incredible. " said John Colthar. a junior in electrical and computer engineering and one of Thumper ' s ' drivers ' . " We had a lot of really good people working on the project. Everyone gave 100 percent. " It wasn ' t easy, though. " We had stronger competition than we were expecting, " Colthar said. For much of the competition, HELIOS was neck-in-neck with a team from Eastern Kentucky University, which took second place, Janet said. Some problems arose during the second heat: Thumper ' s boom extension arm wasn ' t properly aligned. However, the NCSU team eventually won more points for com- pleting the tasks in 37 minutes, just eight min- utes short of the time limit. With the help of design students on the team, HELIOS was also the only group to use computer animation in their presentation to the judges. Trophies from the competition were presented to the deans of engi- neering and design schools. Also, a NCSU banner with the team member ' s names will be taken to the moon when NASA undertakes the project of setting up lunar habitats, currently slated for 2010. The annual spring engi- neering recruitment fair was held in the Jane S. McKimmon Center this year. Over 100 companies were represented and available for students to present resumes and learn about the job market opportunities. Student attendance was projected to be in the thousands. Dean Nino A.

The science House annually eaches over 600 teachers ind 20.000 students in 40 ■chool systems. The icience House in Raleigh ncludes classrooms, labo- atories, a computer teach- ng laboratory, resource ooms. and offices. T his year PAMS announced the Student Research Exploration and PrecoUege Outreach Program, funded by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Dr. Charles Lytic, Professor of Zoology and Coordinator of Biology Outreach Programs is the Program Director. Dr. Lytic and Dr. David Haase, Professor of Physics and Director of The Science House are Co-Principal Investigators for the grant. Ms. Judy Powell is the project coordinator. The program ' s goal is to enrich and broaden the science edu- cation and to provide research experiences for a diverse population of students from grade 7 through the senior uni- versity year, to provide training and support for science teachers in schools across North Carolina, and to encour- age more participation of women and minorities in science classes and in science careers. The program has two major components: ( 1) A Pre-college Outreach Program directed by Dr. David G. Haase, Professor of Physics and Director of the Science House, and (2) A Student Research Exploration Program directed by Dr. Charles F. Lytle. 58 grants were made from 191 proposals for this institute program. NC State was award- ed $1 .4 million for a period of 4 years, begin- ning September I, 1998. This is the second Howard Hughes Medical Institute grant received by the universi- ty. Many of the components of this program build upon the success of the first and on inany years ' experience in assisting schools and teach- ers across the state. The first Howard Hughes Medical Institute grant was awarded in 1992 and included several components including a sub- stantial pre-college outreach program co-directed by Drs. Lytle and Haase. This outreach effort focused on support to schools and teachers in rural and economically disadvantaged areas of the state. This first grant also provided support for undergraduate science class enhancement and undergraduate research participation. The pre- college outreach portion provided summer training for science training for science teachers in tech- nology and laboratory techniques, loans of com- puters and laboratory equipment, and continuing teacher support to facili- tate inquiry based science classes. Many of the teach- ers participating in this earlier program are now teacher-leaders who are changing how science is taught not only in their own schools, but also often training teachers from other schools or school systems. Most of the schools in this first program now have well equipped modern sci- ence laboratory facilities obtained with the guid- ance and assistance of NCSU personnel.

World-renowned paleontologist shares his knowledge on-line. There is now an internet address that gives you the opportunity to satiate all of your dinosaur questions. During the month of September, going on- line provided an opportuni- ty to experiment with Encarta Home Schoolhouse ' s interactive question-and-answer forum where the featured expert is Dale Russell. Russell is a member of NC State ' s faculty and is a world renowned paleon- tologist. However, this is one schoolhouse that may not feel like school to many who attend. There are opportunities to submit questions and to read old queries that remain posted. The site is arranged clearly and links to many other interesting web sites. Dinosaurs were the featured topic during September, but a general information menu lets you discover encyclopedia entries on topics that encompass the Cenozoic Era, Charles Darwin, Geophysics, Human Evolution, and the Ice Age. This site even features quizzes and a teacher ' s lounge for instructors. The resource remains as clear in explor- ing other broad science topics such as the Earth and environment al concerns. Russell has taught his class, " The Dinosaurian World, " at NCSU for the last two years and will offer it again in the future. The class explores the ecolo- gy of dinosaurs. Earth history, plate tectonics, paleoclimatology, and mass extinction. " The public has an insatiable appetite for information about dinosaurs, " Russell said. Through his class- room instruction or the interactive web site, Russell is committed to giving us the infomia- tion our appetite demands.

" This is an experience that appens so students ecome sensitive to these arriers, " John Tector, ssociate dean of under- raduate studies said. They need to know they re the problem. They are le future in architecture. " D esign School celebrates 50 years. Tucked away on East Campus some- where over near the Court of Carolinas, down the road from Poe and past the Riddick parking lot, lies the School of Design. A lot of people don ' t know much about it. Sure, there are occa sional horror stories about students locked in studios until four in the morning, and some peo pie might recognize it as " that place with all the weirdly named build- ings, " but generally, the school and its inhabitants go unnoticed, busily churning out ideas within Brooks ' columned con- fines. But creativity cannot be contained. And the School of Design loves a good party. Thus, in honor of its 50th anniversary, the school cut loose and hosted festivities froin April 13 to 18. Established in 1948, the School of Design originally had two academic compo- nents: the Department of Land.scape Architecture, and the Department of Architecture. Under the guidance of its founder. Dean Henry L. Kamphoefner, (name- sake for one of those " weirdly named build- ings " that make up the school), the school flour- ished. It was a time of remarkable growth, with designers and theorists such as Buckminster Fuller, Matthew Nowicki, Lewis Mumford, and Edmund Catalano joining the faculty. A reputa- tion for innovation and experimentation was established. In the late 1950 ' s the School of Design added a third degree-granting unit, the Department of Product Design. Since then, the departinent has been expanded and then replaced by the current departments of graphic design, industrial design and art and design. April marked 50 years of shaping the future of design for the school and celebrated five generations of distinguished alumni. It was observed with a week of conventinos, lectures and perfonnances, culminating in a final cele- bratory bash. The week kicked off with the " Research in Design Education " con- ference at Centennial Campus from April 14 through April 17. The conference focused on 54 papers about design, with topics ranging from research on design peda- gogy to the influence of research on design teaching to teaching pro- grams linked to research. Also on April 14, the school had the open- ing reception for its Faculty Art Exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Art. There were also several student shows on display for the occasion. The first featured the prod- ucts of a school-wide charet held earlier in the semester. In January, every student within the school created an answer to the design topic, " Celebrating Fifty. " Their creations could not exceed the dimensions of a one-foot cube and were then exhibited on a grid system. The second exhibition was a juried show entitled " Into the Next Fifty. " Students submit- ted works in a wide variety of mediums and dis- played them in the Brooks Rotunda.

The only program of its kind in the United States, TEC joins graduate and post graduate students from business, engineering and science disciplines in a collaborative entrepreneurial education experi- ence. The program serves as a bridge between busi- ness and technology by providing the setting where engineers and scientists master essential business tools and entrepreneurial concepts, and where busi- ness graduates enhance their product development and technology manage- ment skills within a high tech context. In the fertile environment of a major research university, these cross functional TEC teams learn to identify and evalu- ate commercial prospects for university-based tech- nologies, and to develop business plans to facilitate technology transfer. The vision of NC State University ' s TEC program includes enhancing technical and man- agement education, promoting economic devel- opment, linking with the business community, and developing an entrepreneurial culture. The TEC program provides and innova- tive entrepreneurial experience for graduate stu- dents as well as providing a link to the business community for education and technology com- mercialization processes. In addition, TEC undertakes scholarly studies of graduate educa- tion and technology commercialization processes and supports university technology commercial- ization. Through merging the expertise and expe- rience of NC State ' s College of Engineering and College of Management and professionals from the industrial and venture communities, the inter- disciplinary TEC Program bridges the gap between technology and business. This innova- tive program is estab- lishing the standards and methods for technology commercialization used in corporations, univer- sities, and laboratories throughout the world. Through one-year participation in the TEC Program, graduate and postgraduate students from business, engineer- ing, science and other non-technical fields form interdisciplinary teams to screen, assess, and develop technolo- gies and products for commercial applica- tions.

Dean Durward Bateman retired from his position as dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. " I ' ve been dean here eleven years and eight months; that ' s a pretty long tenure in a position of this type, " Bateman said. Dean James L. Oblinger The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the parent agency of the National Weather Service, has awarded an NOAA Unit Citation to the NWS Forecast Office in Raleigh for outstanding applied research conducted in col- laboration with faculty and students at NC State. The citation notes that meteo- rology research conducted jointly by the NWS and NCSU has resulted in 18 new or improved weather prediction tools that are now used by NWS fore- casters. These tools have benefited the people of North Carolina with better forecasts and more accu- rate watches and warnings for the state ' s most critical forecast problems. N CSU adds coastal research site. NCSU sets up shop on Holden Beach to research seashore environtnent. NC State graduate students, facuhy and researchers in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will now have a chance to escape to the beach. About 29.29 acres of land at Holden Beach, valued at $1,375 million, were donated to CALS and the NC Sea Grant Program by the owners of Holden Beach Enterprise, in order to set up a coastal research facility. According to a press release, the build- ing, known as the Drew Griffin Environment Research Facility, was given as a legacy to Drew Griffin ' s commitment to ensuring environmental quality in Brunswick County. The donation is perfect for NCSU and Holden Beach, according to Keith Oakley, execu- tive director and fundraiser for CALS. " There is more potential at Holden Beach because it has a com- bination of land and potential to sell part of the land to build a facility to have students, " Oakley said. For the Sea Grant College Program, an independent organization working with NCSU at the site, the land donation is an opportunity for hands-on experience. " It means we have a place that can be developed for educational purposes, " said Ronald Hodson, interim director of the program. As an outreach effort, schoolteachers, grade school children, 4-Hers and others will have an opportunity to gain insight into the salt- marsh setting. According to the Director of CALS Research, Johnny Wynne, what makes this site special is the bio-diversity. " It is one of the most diverse areas in the state, " he said. Because of its diversity. NCSU researchers plan to document how the develop- ment around the area will effect the ecology. " We want to see the impact on the diversity of the flora and fauna, " Wynne said. During the begin- ning of July, Wynne hopes to have graduate students get a baseline survey of the plants and animals, map the elevation and record the types of soils in the area. Together, both the Sea Grant program and NCSU will help Holden Beach make decisions rel- ative to the coinmunity based on their scientific data, Oakley said. One of those deci- sions includes an evalua- tion of water treatment and storm water run-off. " Right now, Holden Beach doesn ' t have a septic system, " Oakley said. " We need to see how to treat their sewage and the impact it will have on the environment. " According to Hodson, research at the site will mean finding answers to many " wonders of the wetland. " According to the press release, the land donation is one of the largest gifts so far in CALS ' effort to raise $15.45 million through NCSU ' s Campaign for Students. The release also said that the college has raised $1 1.5 million toward the university ' s overall goal of $80 mil- CALS 111 AWA..DS FOR ACHI Hi ghest Ranking Scholars David W. Grantham Darsey C.

He is the first vet- erinarian in the history of NASA to go into space. The College of Veterinary Medicine unveiled a bronze sculpture honoring pets and the contribution of animals to veterinary science and human health this year at the entrance to the college ' s Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The sculpture features a life- size likeness of Holly, a yellow, once cancer-ridden Labrador, and Tango, a feline blood donor. The two pets are owned by Mary Szymkowski, a sec- ond-year student at the college who was inspired to become a veterinarian by the cancer treatment Holly received at the col- lege ' s teaching hospital. The sculpture was created by Susan Draughon, a native North Carolina artist from Pittsboro. L ocal residents are up in arms about a proposed NCSU slaughterhouse. NC State ' s proposed slaughterhouse is already causing a stink in the surrounding com munity. At a community meeting held August 4, 1997, residents showed up in droves to protest the addition of a slaughterhouse to the university community. On or about August 3, 1997, residents received a brochure that was a notice to residents about NCSU ' s proposed meat processing laboratory, which will be built on the campus of the Veterinary College with an anticipat- ed completion date of December, 1998. Residents in the area surrounding the vet- erinary school were served notice that the university is planning to operate a laboratory which will, among other things, " operate at a small fraction of the capacity of a commercial meat processing plant, " according to a flyer pro- duced by NCSU. Kc Kenneth Esbenshade. animal sci- ence (husbandry) department head, expressed surprise that local residents would object to the laboratory, billed in literature published by NCSU as a " research and teaching facility devoted to advancing the knowledge and tech- nology of meat production and processing. " Officials at NCSU, however, have had plenty of tiine to hear from opponents to the laboratory. In a letter dated May 21, 1997, Evelyn Elkin Geifer, a doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM), protested that the laboratory is unnec- essary. " No direct or indirect benefits to human health and well-being would be achieved through the proposed (laboratory) activities, " she wrote. Two letters of protest note that currently veterinary students who wish to learn how to inspect meat to US Department of Agriculture standards serve internships at commercial meat processing plants. USDA inspection training is one of the proposed functions of the laboratory. I " The cheaper, more effective, and already established train- ing technique is to place veterinary students in an ongoing slaughter opera- tion as an intern, " wrote Shawn Thomas, legal counsel for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The laboratory will process approxi- mately 14,150 animals a month. Animals which arrive at the laboratory will not be kept overnight, according to NCSU literature. Waste management for live ani- mals consists of holding pens under a roof with screened drains to the sewer. Waste products will be treated before they are disposed of, according to the presenta- tion given at the community meeting. Chancellor Larry K. Monteith addressed the issue of the slaughterhouse, " There are many people who strongly disagree with this, " he said. " We are an A and M school, and meat safety and meat quality are very important to those who are engaged in that enterprise. We have done a poor job in communicating that to the community.

They log in 50+ hour weekends and soon life becomes a blur of research, teaching, or studying. Eventually, they may become so immersed in their studies that tempers flair, depression sets in or worse yet, a sense of futility overwhelms them. Well, it doesn ' t have to be that way. To illustrate, consider a couple of members of the band Glass. Glass is a band composed of three members; two of them whom, Dave and Lou, are graduate students who produce a blues-jazz sound with a whit of folk element and rock mixed in. Hearing them for the first time, one is instantly cap- tured by the band ' s artistic talent resonating from their various stringed instru- ments reinforced with the lead singer ' s powerful voice. Given the bands lifting sound and the real- ization of the amount of time needed to produce it, coupled with the fact that these are graduate students, one can easily become skeptical. These graduate musicians are people like you and I, spending ungodly hours in the lab, teaching or studying. They are the same people who go to bed bleary eyed and hung over from brain drain, knowing the next morning they have to get up a little earlier in order to tie up those loose ends. So how do the members of Glass find the time to meet, compose music and play shows? Are they just using music as an excuse to procrastinate and not study? Actually, their meeting and composing sessions are the exact opposite. Their active pur- suit of something they enjoy outside their fields of study has not only enhanced their personal, social, and emotional well being, but also their academic pursuits. As David Abbott, a physics education graduate student at NC State puts it. " Playing in the band has made me happier and more efficient in doing things both inside and outside my major. I ' m more efficient, innovative, and spending the time playing is a refresher. " But it wasn ' t always like that for him. Dave attended the University of Virginia and was work- ing towards his Masters Degree in Physics. Soon he was neck deep in the grad school grind, struggling and not being able to play music. Knowing he had to paci- fy his gnawing desire for learning new musical experiences, he sought a solution. Dave became aware of a group on the UVA campus, called the UVa. Collegium Musicum who played renaissance music. Much of the music was created with the use of a stringed instrument called the viola da gamba, the predecessor to the cello. Enchanted by the instrument, Dave vowed that he would make time away from his physics studies and take up the instrument. He was soon playing every composition produced for it he could get his hands on. His studies became easier, his work more productive and his disposition much better. The newest branch of NC State ' s Alumni Association Hi ely will not be in some remote area of the US. but in distant Asia. This is due in large part to the efforts of Dean Stewart, who recently traveled halfway around the world to famil- iarize alumni in Taiwan and Hong Kong with recent events surrounding the NCSU campus, as well as general happenings within North Carolina. 122 Academics Dean Debra W.

' •vV [ ' .-u ■ " -- •■- ■W -;% •;--vi - c I - - mn FOOTBALL At the beginning of each fall, the fans of Wolfpack football begin with great expectations. This is the year, man. when we get it all going! " is a common phrase heard all over campus. Armchair athletes from every walk of life salivate over the new crop of freshmen, the seniors who will make this " their year " and the news from the coaching staff that the team is the most solidified they ve seen in years. But for the two seasons previous to the 1997 campaign, those expectations were quickly deflated by back-to-back losing seasons. After suffering through the two 3 " 8 campaigns prior to this year, Wolfpack fans began to get a bit weary of all the hype that surrounds the fall and perhaps felt that the upper echelons of the coaching staff that annu- ally praised their " solidified squad needed some drastic changes. 1997 would hold a different ending for the tired, same old story for the Pack, however. And the ending started, oddly enough, at the begin- ning. The Pack opened up their season with one of their toughest challenges, a road match up with Syracuse University, ranked among one of the top teams in the country during the pre-season. The odds were heavily stacked against the Pack, but after four quarters they found themselves knotted up at 24-24 and heading to the first overtime game in ACC history. Syracuse struck first, and converted on the extra point to hold a seven point advantage. But the Pack stormed back, and after scoring they huddled up for a quick two-point conversion, catching Syracuse off guard. Before the Orangemen knew it, quarterbackjaime Barnette hooked up with Torry Holt at the goal line for the conversion and the win. It was college football ' s first big upset of the year, and would be the first of six for the Pack. The State players never lost their team unity drawing strength from the rubber bands they wore on their wrists. State would win the final three ganies of the season, with a 45-28 win over Maryland, a 31-24 win over a tough Virginia team and a 37-24 exclamation point against rival East Carolina. So the Pack finished with a winning record of 6-5, the team ' s first since 1994. And perhaps more importantly for the Pack teams of the future, head coach Mike O ' Cain earned a five year contract extension, and helped ensure that State, having turned the corner, remains firmly on track. by -JAMES CURLE- Ej WINS LOSSES HARVEY HARVEY ..ij MALECKY HARVEY HARVEY CLAGETT Carlos King emerged as one of NC State ' s most ver- satile players in 1997 ' after see- ing limited playing time as a backup fullback the last three seasons.

His emer- gence as a fleet-footed athlete is any- thing but a surprise, though. After all, he is the fastest man in the ACC. Whitted laid claim to his title in 1996. when he shattered conference records in the lOO and 200 meter events, recording a I0.02 and 20.03 respectively at the ACC track cham- pionships.

After the loss to the Hoosiers, the Pack went on a four game winning streak, defeating four nationally ranked teams and earning recogni- tion as the No. 4 team in the nation. Among State ' s victims, Penn State, and Atlantic Coast Conference foes Maryland and Clemson. In what will go down as one of the greatest games ever to be played at the famed Method Road soccer stadium, the Pack defeated rival Virginia, 2-1 in overtime in front of its largest home crowd of the season. Freshman forward Nick Olivencia scored both goals for State, the first goals to be scored by the Pack on the Cavalier defense in four years. The Pack struggled over the next few games, falling to Wake Forest and Radford, and drop- ping a hard fought match with Duke, I-O, on a goal that came off a penalty shot in the second half. The Pack ' s seven seniors picked up their final win at Method Road with a victory over UNC-Chapel Hill.

Four years later, that talent powered the Wolfpack through a tough season. The Wolfpack started slow, posting nine V— vVy ' " losses at the start of the season before breaking into the win column with a victory over ' Syracuse in the Wolfpack Invitational. State dovmed the Orange in three games. State struggled throughout the regular sea- son, playing ACC teams to fourth and fifth matches just about every time they took the floor. Not only was the St ate season highlight- ed by a move from the south end of Reynolds Coliseum, to center court, but the three seniors who came to Raleigh with Hall four years ago finished out their careers at home, as State hosted the ACC Championship tourna- ment. The Pack started the tournament with a five game, 3 " 2 win over Wake Forest, a team that they had split with in regular season. Just 45 minutes later, the Pack faced Maryland, who was not only the Number I seed, but also who was undefeated in the ACC since the 1995 sea- son. The Pack battled the Terrapins, but the fresh legs of Maryland ' s defense was too much, as the Terps walked away with the 3 " C victory. State seniors did not walk away from Reynolds Coliseum with out leaving their mark. Defensive specialist Jennifer Peterson set a school record for digs in a career. Peterson ' s twin sister Nicole left State as the Pack ' s all time career assist leader.

Under coach Rollie Geiger. the men s and women s team captured the Atlantic Coast Conference championships for the unprecedented third time in as many seasons. Both teams dominated the season-opening Wolfpack Invitational, where Pack stars Laura Rhoads and Abdul Alzindani recorded their first victories of their colle- giate careers. Both teams proved their strength at the North Carolina Collegiate Championships as well. Both walked away with easy victories, outshining 13 other schools from the state, including ACC foes UNC-Chapel Hill and Wake Forest. The men ' s team was so dominant that not only did they sweep first through fifth places, but the eight Wolfpack runners to complete the race were also the first eight men to cross the finish line. At the conference chainpionships, it was business as usual for the Pack. The women captured their l6th title ever, with three freshmen coming in the top five, and Rhoads again leading the way, finishing second overall. On the men s side, no one else had a chance. Only five runners scored for each team, but the Pack placed six in the top ten. Overall. lO runners, Corby Pons, Chan Pons, Brenda Rogers. Robbie Howell, Alzindani, Joe Wirgau, Rhoads, Amy Beyrich, Sarah Gray, Erin Musson, and Meredith Faircloth earned All-ACC Honors. The Pack advanced to the National Championships for the third year in a row with victories at the District meet. Rhoads won the women ' s race, as it was the State women ' s turn to blow away the competition. On the men ' s side, the margin of victory wasn ' t quite so lopsided, but three runners placed in the top ten, and the buzz was that Geiger and the Pack had side-lined two All-ACC runners to rest them up for the National meet. In all. when the meet was over, not only did the Pack walk away with their second straight District title, but ten of 14 runners earned All-District honors, as all ten of the Pack ' s scorers finished in the top 25- While the women, though hindered by injuiy and sickness, battled to an Ilth place finish, the men ' s team used their experience from the past two seasons of disappointment to turn in the Pack ' s second best finish ever at the National meet.

In his second season with the Wolfpack. Coach Herb Sendek once again dazzled the Wolfpack community, overcoming every obstacle that was thrown at him and his team, and there were plenty. Early in the 1997-98 season, Damon Thornton, went down with another injury, followed by two of his Wolfpack teammates, and a feeling of DEja vu set in at Reynolds Coliseum. But behind the veteran leadership of seniors C.C. Harrison and Ishua Benjamin, and the talent of newcomers like Kenny Inge, Ron Kelly, and Archie Miller, the Pack battled back once again, playing in its second consecutive post- season for the first time since 1987-88 and 1988- 89 when the late Jim Valvano was still at the helm of the Wolfpack program. State ' s freshmen made an impact, with Kenny Inge making a strong case for ACC Rookie of the Year honors, and at the end of the season being named to the conference ' s All-Freshman team. Amongst the most gTjarded memories of the 1997-98 season for Wolfpack fans will be the weekend in February when the Wolfpack men and women defeated arch-rivals UNC-Chapel Hill back-to-back. The men ' s win 86-72 in Chapel Hill on national television sent swarms of fans to Hillsborough Street, and brought hundreds to Reynolds to greet the homecoming victors. The Pack once again looked to tear through the ACC tournament, but was once again knocked out of the post-season gala by rival UNC- Chapel Hill. But again mirroring the previous season, the Wolfpack added post-season excitement with two NIT games at Reynolds Coliseum. As Wolfpack fans count down the games until State is playing in bigger arenas, literally, 1997-98 made memories that fans will cherish forever.

The State men finished fourth at the meet, as the distance free-stylers came through, placing four swim- mers in the top eight of the 1,650 meter free, and three in the top eight of the 500-meter freestyle. On the women ' s side, Marcia McKeel became NC State ' s newest ACC Champion, winning the one-meter diving competition.

In mid-January, the Wolfpack, ACC Champions two years ago, upset the Tar Heels of North Carolina, handing them their first head-to- head defeat since February of 1993- The Pack won five of the ten matches, just edging the Tar Heels, 18-17. Tommy Davis pinned opponent C.C. Fisher in the 126 lbs. match, while James Kocher, Kevin Boross, Jeff Green, and Billy Blunt each won decisions. But the I997 " 98 season wasn ' t all about wins. In late January, Greg Bauer showed his teammates just what courage and commitment were. In a match against an opponent from James Madison University, Bauer injured his leg. During a time out, he pleaded with coaches and trainers to let him finish the match. They did, and it was his last of the season. Bauer had broken his leg, so severely that the alignment between his leg and his ankle were thrown off. But Bauer finished the match, his only explanation that it was his job. At the Conference meet, held in Durham in late March, four Wolfpack wrestlers advanced to the finals, giving them berths into the NCAA meet. James Kocher, Pierre Pi or, Kevin Boross, and ACC Champion Billy Blunt represented the Pack at the biggest wrestling meet of the season, and, like Greg Bauer, continue to represent good things to come for the Wolfpack. -Ryan Kellogg H F A n C O A c ,-, Bob Guzzo Dave Aub le A S S l -.S T A h ij- C n A n H ASO N SUTER HARVEY HARVEY SANDERS HARVEY HARVEY HARVEY HARVEY STEVENS gporh wr m MALECKY HARVEY RIGGSBEE MALECKY M ALECK Y MALECKY HARVEY RIGGSBEE iiorls SO! mr fl BASKETBALL -SI] u NC State is pretty comfortable with uncharted territory, case-in-point, the Wolfpack is I-O in Regional Finals. NC State C C!J advanced to the Final Four for the first time in history, with a 60-52 win over the University of Connecticut. State struggled in the first r: yt. half, unable to get its inside game in motion. I IL In the first half, both teams collected just 14 points in the paint, but UConn faced over 13 minutes of that half without Paige Sauer, the 6-foot-5 sophomore who had played so well in the Regional Semi-final for the Huskies. State post players Chasity Melvin, Peace Shepard, and Summer Erb combined for just II points. State also allowed the Huskies the advantage on the boards, collecting just 16 rebounds, to the Huskies 23 ' nd a mere three on the offensive end, picking up just one second-chance basket. Concentrating on the fundamentals. State took control in the second half. While Uconn, in its 13th year under the direction of Geno Auriemma, pushed the lead to lO points within the first three minutes of the half. State worked the inside, and took a four point lead just five minutes later. The Wolfpack ' s 14-0 run was sparked by six caused turnovers on the Huskies end of the court, and eight points from Melvin. " They are bigger than any team that we faced, " said Auriemma of the Wolfpack ' s interior game. " And they took us away from what we wanted to do inside. " Among those eight points, was Melvin ' s 2,OOOth of her career. The 6-foot-3 seniors 18 point, II rebound performance on Monday night put her in the elite company of being only the sec- ond Wolfpack player ever to score over 2,000 points and collect 1,000 rebounds in a career. Summer Erb also came alive in the second half, scoring 12 points, including five free throws in the final 1:13 of the game, helping put the Huskies away. With 1:37 l ft ii the game. State was up by just four points, but behind eight points from the charity stripe from Erb and junior guard Kristen Gillespie, the Wolfpack earned their first ever trip to what Summer Erb referred to as " the Huge Dance " . LySchale Jones and Tynesha Lewis added 23 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists in the backcourt for NC State. Sauer and Amy Duran each finished with 11 for the Huskies. Melvin, Erb, Lewis, and Sauer, along with Arizona ' s Lisa Griffith were named to the All- East Regional team, with Melvin tak- ing home honors as the Regional ' s Most Outstanding Player. b -Kim Gaffney- hi Kay Yow AftSISTAWT COACJL, Stephanie Glance A-S S I S T A N T C 1 ST A Njr — » . n A f H Ann ette Watts As -CUu R E E z Y Bishop Robin Pate «»« " «W 5iH HARVEY HARVEY HARVEY MALECKY HARVEY porfs_ ETl MALECKY HARVEY MALECKY 1M sporfs HARVEY HARVEY HARVEY HARVEY MALECKY sporh 2ir IU Ax: w i HARVEY » HARVEY . HI ' HARVEY «l lAt •■ » ♦ V w «f I li HARVEY S16 Depth combined witli talent is one of those luxuries that few coaches enjoy. For the first time in his career as NC State gymnastics coach, Mark Stevenson heads into the 1998 Gymnastics season finding himself in that very position: Loaded to the gills with talented personnel. " As a team, we ' re going to have a tremendous amount of depth this year that we ' ve never had before, " Stevenson said. " Anytime you have depth, you ' ve increased the value, or level, of your squad. When we went to UNC last year, we lost three kids in our lineup within five days. We took those three out of our lineup and we lost because we had no depth. " Two of the incoming freshman Pack gymnasts, Amy Langendorl and Sarah Dolan, were recruited out of " Docksliders, " a gymnastics club in Baltimore, MD. Langendorf excels at two events, the uneven bars and the floor exercise. She performs the very difficult Triple Full on floor, a skill highly respected at the international level of gymnastics. Look for her to make an impact sometime this season early on. Dolan ' s strongest event is perhaps the balance beam, though her vaulting skills should begin to reap dividends for the Pack, as well. Charles, Langendorf, and Dolan are prototypical gymnasts, in that they don ' t spe- cialize solely on one event. These " Jills of all trades " add a much-needed redundancy to the Pack lineup. In the past, when a specialist on a certain event would go down with an injury, another specialist would be called upon to compete on an event that they weren ' t as strong on. By having a lineup full of all-arounders, an injury to a gymnast won ' t strike such a blow to the team ' s total score. " This year we ' ve got the backups, " Stevenson said. " If Ashley [Hutsell] gets hurt, the backup ' s not going to be quite as good, but it ' s not going to be an 8.2, it ' s going to be a 9.5 instead of a 9-7 Guiding the Pack ' s wealth of frosh talent this year are senior co- captains Stephanie Wall and the aforementioned Hutsell. Wall absolutely dominated on the balance beam last season, winning or tying for first place on the event seven out of 10 times during the regular season. Hutsell is back healthy this year after missing a great deal of last season due to a calf injury. The influx of talent will challenge the upperclassmen for playing time, but don ' t expect State to field a squad full of freshmen when the first meet rolls around. " The freshmen are very, very good, " Stevenson said. " Like all freshmen, though, they ' re going to have to learn how to hit routines and learn how to deal with the pressure. When Georgia rolls in this year, we ' re hoping to have 5. 6, 7.OOO people at the meet, they ' re the number one team in the country. For our team, those kids that have always been out there, they ' re going to have to learn a little bit and they ' re going to have to work really hard to stay in front of the freshmen. But the bottom line comes down to the seniors and juniors have experience, they know how to hit routines, they ' ve learned from the other seniors and juniors that came before them, and those guys are going to be responsible for teaching the freshmen how to do that. They have to take those freshmen to the next level . " by -James Curle- H E A D C n A O H Mark Stevenson A-SS-IS-TANT G,0 Si ' am " S c h u h .

The 5-II right fielder from Wappingers Falls, fY was the first of r the five Wolfpack players to be selected in the 1998 baseball draft. Seniors Kurt Blackmon and Bubba Scarce and juniors Brad Piercy and Rodney Ormond joined Weber in the draft. The Seattle Mariners snatched Weber, who was drafted in 1997 W the Minnesota Twins in the 15th round, in the sixth round. Weber returned to play for Coach Elliot Avent and the Pack Nine for one final year and wound up re-writing the NCSU record books along the way. Weber set ACC marks in consecutive games started (248). career hits (366) and career at-bats with I.OOO. Weber batted -393 his senior year with 66 runs batted in and 15 stolen bases in 17 attempts. Weber also set several school marks including an NCSU best 21 triples. 239 RBl ' s and 582 total bases, among others. C Junior Brad Piercy was the next Wolfpack player to be taken in the draft. The Montreal Expos selected the catcher from Shelby, NC in the seventh round. Piercy was also selected in a previous draft, in the 62nd round out of Crest High in 1995- Piercy capped his three-year career by leading the ACC in homeruns this year with 19 to go along with 73 RBI ' s, J 26 stolen bases, and a .389 batting average. One of the better athletes in ( ' ( " the ACC, Piercy is expected to remain a catcher in the Expos organization. 1 1 1 1 — His combination of left-handed hitting, speed, and power at the catcher position made Piercy a very attractive commodity. The Expos continued their interest in Wolfpack players by select- ' ing Dobson, also a junior, in the I2th round. Dobson was 2-1 in his final year at NCSU with a 6.53 ERA in mainly a relief role. Dobson appeared in 20 games, starting four times. The Minnesota Twins also selected Dobson in the 1995 draft in the 39th round out of high school. The senior tandem of Blackmon and Scarce were the next and r-jvj final players taken from NC State in the draft. The Atlanta Braves picked up Scarce in the 27th round, and the Philadelphia Phillies selected Blackmon in the 30th. Both seniors were regulars in the Wolfpack ' s three- man weekend starting rotation this year. Scarce compiled a record of 8-3. despite a late-season bout with tendinitis. The Braves ' rookie-level team is located in Scarce s hometown of Danville, VA. Scarce was selected in the I2th round by the Oakland Athletics after a superb senior year in high school. Blackmon, a 6-1 right bander from Rock Hill, SC, was NC State ' s ace in 1998, posting an II-5 record with a 4.27 ERA. Blackmon ' s 23 wins during his career is good enough for seventh in the NC State annals, and he also became only the ninth Pack hurler to notch double-digit wins in a season. Blackmon signed with the Wolfpack in 1994 despite being selected in the l8th round by the San Diego Padres.

Yet the issues surrounding the plus minus grading seem more com- plex than one might think. A three-year testing period of the plus minus grading system, ordered by Chancellor Larry Monteith in 1994, finished with the passing of the last academic year. The data are in, and the results reveal many things. Or, perhaps, they reveal nothing, depending on how you look at it. For example, average GPA is rising, according to the report. However, GPAs tend to go up slightly when calculated without pluses and minuses. Thus it appears that the plus minus system has actually caused a small amount of grade deflation. Not necessarily so, says faculty senator Harriett Griffin, explaining that a borderline stu- dent who a teacher could not give a C in good conscience would probably receive a D without plus minus grading. " There is actually a very small rise in average GPA because of plus minus grading, " Gritfin continued. That seems to be substantiated by the survey. In most grades many more pluses are given than minuses. However, only about half as many A+s are given as A-s, so only those rare few who are consistently at the top end of the academic spectrum appear to be hurt, according to the report. One would be hard-pressed to convince many students of that, however. Last year ' s Student Senate passed " A resolution concerning the university grading system " which directly stated " that more students ' grade point averages were impacted negatively than positively " because of the plus minus system, adding that the " negative effect on students " grades is super- added to other concerns. " Also, they criticized the lack of fairness in the plus minus system. Indeed, even proponents of the grading standard admit that it is less than fair. The " non-linearity of the scale, " according to Associate Provost Frank Abrams. " punishes the uni- versity ' s top students " by not valuing the A+ consistently with the rest of the grade alues. " However. Abrams does not feel the proposal to value an A+ at 4.33 would benefit stu- dents either. Not only does he cite the possibility of grade inflation, but also the fact that such an option, when grades are normalized by prospective employers or graduate schools, would effectively deflate the scores of most students. In short, there appears to be no perfect solution. Within the next academic year tlie administration of the university will have to decide whether to keep the plus minus system in its present form, do away with it, or change it in some way to make it more acceptable to all con- cerned. While it is nice, according to Abrams, to use a " more precise grading scale " from which students can easily gauge their knowledge of the subject concerned, the administration is looking into " some thoughtful discussion with students and faculty this fall, " Abrams says. One possibility is to keep the current grading system, with its optional pluses and minuses, Abrams said. Another is to completely drop all pluses and minuses and thus return to the standard grading system. There are other proposals, however, and the most common seems to be the idea of assigning pluses and minuses but not changing point values, thus giving stu- dents an assessment of their work without actually causing GPA reduction. However, Abrams is quick to state that there " may be other solutions, " and that there must be, if possible, a decision that will satisfy everyone concerned. The choice of scale, he says, is " fundamentally the responsibility of the faculty.. .and the faculty should listen to the stu- dents. " Plus Minus Grading Study 275 w 1 . Photo by Jamie Stevens 276 Camp NC STATE NC State is in a strong position to compete in the global economy. That was what NCSU Chancellor Larry Monteith told those gathered at the Forum on Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. held Monday, September 22. 1997 at the NC Museum of History. The forum consisted of panel discussions that featured renowned educators from across the state. The Higher Education Act funds the majority of federal financial assistance to college students, including Pell Grants, College Work-Study, and Perkins Loans. Monteith spoke on the forums final panel, which focused on higher educations, the economy, and the global market- place. He used NCSU ' s growth as an exampls of what universities should do to develop as a research institution in order to impact the global economy. One of the issues he pressed was the partnership between industries and universities. " NC State University is an excellent example of just how strong industry feels about these partnerships. Last year, approximately $30 million was awarded to NC State from over 300 industrial partners. We are currently ranked eighth nationally in dollars from industry for this kind of research alone. " said Monteith. Once industries and universities connect and research develops into results, Monteith stresses the " ownership of intel- lecutal property. " This is the only way to insure that the results will reach the global marketplace. " And, it is working! " Monteith continued. " NC State ranks number one among Southeastern universities in licensing patents to companies in their own state. " Monteith claimed that another result from university industry partnerships is hands-on experience for students. " Today, the chances [for students] of being on a faculty, or of working in a basic research lab, like I did, are less like- ly. In fact, chances are that today ' s students will go to work in a company where there is a high-tech component. Their research experience will be a primary factor in their early success, " said Monteith. Panelist Sandra Babb. advisor on workforce preparedness for the governor ' s office, also spoke of what graduates need to succeed in the global marketplace. Graduates must be prepared for the changing business world, according to Babb. Babb stresses the ability for graduates to work in groups. " Work is more collaborative instead of hierarchical. Graduates must be able to take the role of either team leader or team member, " said Babb. Both Babb and panelist Bob Ingam, the president and CEO of Glaxo-Wellcome, insist on the ability for employees to not only keep up with, but improve the speed of changing technology. " We live in an innovation based economy. " continues Babb. " Someone once defined an expert as someone who can keep up. " " I need to speed the search. I want to shorten what takes 12 years and millions of dollars to produce new medicines, " Ingram said. The panel members agreed that students need to be able to depend on themselves and adapt quickly in order to com- pete in the global economy. Universities must combine with industry to develop patents in order to compete in this " innova- tion-based " economy. " It is the place where technology transfer is a contact sport, again, where scientists, students, and professionals from industry all work together to play out this incredibly important research game on a daily basis, " Monteith concluded. Story by Nicole Miller REMAINS COMPETITIVE Competitive Students at NCSU 277 Caucasians, Asians, Hispanics receive half the number of scholarships awarded to Native Americans and African Americans relative to their total enrollment, according to statistics gener- ated by NC State ' s financial aid office. In the last five years, two new programs were established to give legislative grants and incentives to African Americans and Native Americans, according to Julie Rice Mallette, director of financial aid. Mallette said it is often up to the donor to decide whether a scholarship will target minori- ties. " We do encourage donors to take any racial language out of it [award criteria], " she said. Racial language in scholarship and financial aid applications are currently under review. The University of North Carolina ' s President Molly Broad said the affirmative action policies of all 16 UNC system universities must be examined. Broad said she wants to prevent lawsuits against campuses, a News and Observer article said. Despite judicial action taken against race-based preferences, UNC system officials said the core of their system ' s affirmative action efforts — race-based scholarships on all UNC campuses to increase minority representation - is secure because it is " part of a federal government decree over desegregation, " the News and Observer said. However, some universities have re-evaluated thier minority initiatives. Appalachian State University turned its African American scholarship into a multi-cultural scholarship and East Carolina University Chancellor ' s Minority Student Leadership Program, which gives 15 African American freshmen a $1,500 stipend and a year of leadership training, mentoring, and workshops, was recently eradicated. Even so, the UNC system has set up scholarships specifically for minorities. For example, the Minority Presence Grant Program is designed to bring minorities to NCSU and is appropriated through the state legistature. Mallette said that predominately African American universities do the same for Caucasians. " These are recruitment tools to increase minorities, " she said. Mallette also said these grants would continue to be awarded, despite the review. On the other hand, the Dean ' s Merit Scholarships that target a certain ethnic population will no longer be awarded, she said. Yvette Thompson, assistant director of undergraduate admissions, said her department is following the directives of Broad. At this time, she said nothing has been determined on how the review will effect the Dean ' s Merit Scholarships. Thompson also said the Dean ' s Merit Scholarships are open to any student who is academically inclined, partici- pates in extracurricular activities and has good recommendations. Aggressively recruiting women and minorities in science and math is an example of the university ' s diversity efforts. However, Joanne Woodard, NCSU affirmative action coordinator, said the university places more emphasis on a diversity of ideologies rather than appearances. A recent survey of about 100 NCSU students asked if affirmative action is the way for the university to have a competitive edge. " Yes, " one student said, " because it helps induce diversity. " Another student Story by Danielle Stanfield disagreed. " No, because that is reverse racism and col- lege admissions should be based solely on criteria and characteristics of the person. " The survey also revealed that 57 percent of minorities and 88 percent of Caucasian stu- dents polled thought that race should not be a factor in admissions or scholarships. " I think that the scholarship programs do cater towards African Americans, " she said. " There are a lot more scholarships for them. That might be because of affirmative action or something. " ' Woodard said the university has benefited from affirmative action as a whole and minori- ties are assets to the university and an integral part of NCSU ' s identity. Administrators guess the fate of race-based scholarships A QUESTION OF MERIT 2 9 Campus Issues " n i » ! k Jl ) Photo by Jamie Stevens Photo by Jamie Stevens ..i,iam PfHtS HittUi jWi 4 ■1 I W WtllKt.-A-.j irjy Thanks to technology, students now have 2o0 Campus Issues A new NC State program will allow students to take courses without ever having to step into the classroom. The name of this lifesaver is " Project 25. " Offered over the internet, it is still an experiment at NC State but is hoped to be an added guide to the teaching process here. Twenty-five of the 5,000 courses offered at State are now available on- line. That means many more students will have 24-hour access to the offered classes. Students could even take a class at 3:00 in the morning if they wanted to, since they will be able to get their assignments and needed resources at any time on the internet. The program is the brainchild of Frank Abrams, Assistant Provost at NCSU, and other faculty members on campus who have been looking for an innovative approach to teaching NCSU students. Abrams said the program allows students to work at their own pace. " In real life, you will have to be able to approach things in a lot of different ways, " Abrams said. But will Project 25 be able to take the place of real professors? " No, " said Dr. Abrams. " Project 25 has been established to help profes- sors in their guiding role as teachers to the students. It is a guide, consultant and evaluator only. It could never take the place of the advising that many professors have to do in order to help those students who may not understand the assignment or course, nor can it give that one-on-one attention that a lot of students need. " Simply put, Project 25 is mainly a supplement to in-class teaching, Abrams said. Since all of the courses offfered by Project 25 are taught in a normal for- mat, students who don ' t have access to the internet don ' t need to fret. Project 25 users can change from the computer scene to a classroom at any point since the internet courses are taught at the same pace as the regular courses, Abrams said. When asked if he thought this would be a successful pro- ject, Abrams replied, " I hope so. Assessing how well a success it is will be determined by the frequency of access, the time at which it is most accessed, surveys of stu- dents, expectations before and after use, and also a survey of the facul- ty ' s expectations will be done.

For exam- ple, at the request of graduate students, last year the Libraries purchased fifty small book carts that are available for public use on each floor of the D.H. Hill Library. Copiers were also placed on the stack floors for improved convenience. New to the Libraries this year are expanded self-serve copying services, such as a wide-format copier and a color copier, both available at Photocopy Services. For newcomers to campus, the library system consists of the main D.H. Hill Library and four branches. Thanks to funds from the recent tuition increase, all the libraries have increased building and staffing hours. The D.H. Hill Library now offers twenty-four hour service during the fall and spring semesters. Last year, more than 16,000 students used the building during its late night hours. The NCSU Libraries are unique in hav- ing not only reference and circulation staff on duty during the twenty-four hours, but uniformed security guards as well. The four branch libraries serve specific colleges and programs at the university and provide full access to the NCSU Libraries Information System. They are the Design Library (Brooks Hall), Natural Resources Library (Jordan Hall), Textiles Library (Textiles Building, Centennial Campus), and the Veterinary Medical Library (College of Veterinary Medicine). Affiliated with the Libraries are the African American Cultural Center Reading Room at the Witherspoon Student Center and the Learning Resources Library in Poe Hall. Beyond the holdings of more than 2.5 million volumes of printed materials, the NCSU Libraries is acquiring electronic databases of greatest need to students and faculty and providing twenty-four access to them through the NCSU Libraries Information System. This system offers an online catalog that students can search from dorm or home computers with modems. One of the most heavily used areas of the D.H. Hill Library is the current periodicals and newspapers section. Thanks to the senior class gift of the Class of 1 99 1, the Periodicals Reading Room in the Erdahl-Cloyd Wing is an inviting space with new carpeting, comfortable chairs, and attractive lighting and tables. This space complements the gift of the Class of 1989, the large Reading Room to the right of the D.H. Hill main entrance, created to foster an atmosphere conducive to learning and study. These and other changes you may have seen throughout the year are part of the Libraries " plan to locate high-use public services areas where they are most visible and convenient. Stop by the second floor of the East Wing to see progress on the newest service area of the Libraries: the Learning and Research Center for the Digital Age. It will offer innovative services that help students and faculty take advantage of the potential of digital technologies in their coursework and research, including professional assistance with Internet and multi- media resources for instruction and a scanning and digitalizing facility. The NCSU Libraries are here to help students attain a successful NCSU educational experience. Come try out the services and let them know how efforts can be improved to meet your information needs. 1 s Collections Story by Jinnie Y.

According to a Public Safety crime report, a man allegedly exposed his geni- talia to two female students as they walked through the Free Expression Tunnel in the fall semester. The alleged incident comes on the heels of an August 31, 1997 report of a man masturbating in the Free Expression Tunnel. Crime prevention Officer Larry Ellis said it has not yet been determined whether the same suspect was involved in both alleged incidents. But he said Public Safety is carefully examining the possibil- ity that the two events might be linked. " Anytime we have two of the same incidents, we look extra close, " Ellis said. The most recent incident reported- ly took place at around 1 a.m. on a Friday morning. At that time, two female stu- dents walking through the Free Expression ! Tunnel claim to have seen a man exposing imself. I «j " They observed a white male sub- ffject standing in the skylight area of the tunnel shaking his penis. " Public Safety Officer K. Smith said in a report. " [One of the alleged victims] said the subject ' s penis was not erected and the subject just stood there shaking his penis and did not run or move. " Both students left the tunnel immediately and filed a report with Office Smith, describing the suspect as a 5 foot 10 inch white male with short blondish- brown hair. Officer Smith canvassed the area surrounding the tunnel, asking students if they had seen anyone matching the description of the suspect. He said a few students reported seeing someone who fit the suspect ' s description walking into D.H. Hill Library. Smith searched the library, but could not located the suspect. Ellis said Public Safety would beef up its patrols of the Free Expression Tunnel because of the two alleged inci- dents. " If it starts happening in the same place, we ' ll be looking in the same place. " Ellis also said the suspect will probably not be able to get away many more times. " The more they do it, the more they increase their chances of getting caught, " he said.

It is doubtful this is what Jimmy V had in mind. The shovels tore the dirt from the ground and the cameras clicked, capturing the many smiles and handshakes and exactly what was happening. It was July 21. 1997. over ten years after its birth had been envisioned, and the Entertainment and Sports Arena was being made a reality — sort of - at its groundbreaking cere- mony. Dignitaries were on hand, including Gov. James B. Hunt, Lt. Gov. Dennis Wicker, and Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos, among many others. If you were someone, you were there. All of the special guests on hand spoke of what a great day it was to be a North Carolinian... of how special this day is to the region... and how proud we all should be. But what was notably absent was mention of why they were even there, looking out over a large muddy pit in the first place. As the final cramped, sky-blue seat was put into the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill in 1986, then-State basketball coach Jim Valvano knew that the time was coming for the Wolfpack to move out of steamy, cozy Reynolds Coliseum and into something bigger, more modem. What Valvano and then-Raleigh mayor Avery Upchurch envisioned was a coliseum located in downtown Raleigh. The new arena would serve three very important purposes. First, it would provide State with a new basketball shrine, one that would top, or in the very least, match, the Dean Dome. Secondly, it would give Raleigh and the Triangle a much needed conference center Finally, it would be the cornerstone of a downtown revitalization project. The I98()s ended and with them went Valvano ' s job at State, as well as his dream. As the Wolfpack basketball program toiled from i:stionable ethics to the lovable .06CIS . igh SAT scores, the idea of a new are; ■ iistant, if not silly. 2o0 Campk. But as the hoops program turned a comer towards better days, one thing remained — Reynolds. " I can remember my dad, an alum- nus of NC State, saying many times before he died. ' We need a new arena, " " Wicker said at the groundbreaking ceremony. Reynolds had always had character and tradition. But as seemingly every school builds new, plush homes for its athletics teams, those two traits can only go so fan When your basketball team is mediocre, to say the least, another element must be added to the mix. That ' s where the NHL came into play. It seemed like it was the perfect fit for the fomier Hartford Whalers to come to North Carolina. It ' s pretty simple, really. They needed a home and State needed a roommate to help foot the bill for an arena, that price tag had risen from much less than $100 million to around $160 million. Pack supporters felt, and still feel indifferently about the partnership. Most realize that the Carolina Hurricanes were essen- tial to siphoning the money need- ed from Wake County and the state; but most realize that with the addition of the Hurricanes that State can ' t really call it " our " arena. Thankfully, with the " I ' ll scratch your back if you scratch mine " altitude that usually goes along with these things, the Hurricanes decided to go with red as mary color, completing the partnershi All of the speakers on hand for the groundbreaking echoed the same words. " This will be the home of NCAA Championships and Stanley Cups. " Photos by Shon Iscnhour r " X. X . ' (p Photos by Joey Luther 1 (S c|mpu HISTORY RESTORED Story by Israel J. Pattison For one timeless piece of visual art in campus, time has taken its toll, .ocated in the Atrium food court near ).H. Hill Library, the Bromberg Mural las served as a conversation piece for nore than 40 years. The mural is the work of Manuel komberg and his assistant Ligon Flynn. rhis 1 0-feet-by-40-feet mural is the first vork of its type, employing polychrome. )r multi-colored, plaster. Traced in its ntricate patterns are symbols and dia- grams representing the seven disciplines epresented at NC State. Time has changed this art- vork in several obvious ways. First, )ther " artists " have made their own addi- ions since the mural ' s completion. In ome ways, this graffiti has opened a his- orical window on the lives of NCSU stu- lents over the years. Interestingly, though, these addi- ions were not unforeseen. In a letter by iromberg written many years later, he lotes. " The graffiti, however, was antici- )ated when it was designed, in 1953, as )art of an ongoing happening. " Perhaps less noticeable to today ' s ;ommunity, the mural ' s colors have :hanged due to the passing of time. A :oating of shellac added to the mural sev- eral years after its completion the color change. Bromberg ' s mural is a rich sym- bol of many skills and disciplines shared by the mem- bers of the NCSU community. Contained within the designs are more] than fifty different images — everything] from geometrical patterns to diagrams of cells. By using art to portray these images, Bromberg achieves a " unity of art and science " which represents a unity of man ' s intel- lectual endeavors. added to A CAMPUS |lCON IS SET TO GET A FACELIFT This Mural is Alive!

Morris Dees speaks out at the Witherspoon Student Center, which was surround- ed by sheriffs deputies for the event. Story On March 23, 1997, no one was allowed to enter the Witherspoon Student Center until they were searched and frisked. The high security was due to Morris Dees, civil rights attorney and keynote speaker for Human Rights Week. Wake County and NC State police heavily guarded this founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Dees has launched an attack on the Ku Klux Klan and white hate groups across the country. As a result of the rise in racial violence. Dees launched a program in 1 986 focusing on teaching tolerance. According to Dees, " Getting along is a problem in this country and has been ever since this country was founded. " Dees spent a lot of time talking about the cause of the Oklahoma City bombing. Even though the country was devastated at the sheer destruction, Dees believes that " the reaction was what the people behind the bombing expected. " Dees went on to explain that the bombers were expecting the bombing to be the start of a race war in the United States. According to Dees, Timothy McVeigh " felt he was a good soldier saving the country from the terror within. " The bombers obtained their knowledge and hate for the government from the Turner Diaries. The fictional book records the destruction and genocide of people of color in the late 1990s from the account of a survivor of the race war. The author of the book is the founder of the National Alliance, which is the largest white power group in the country. Dees explained that the culmination of some white supremacist ' s hatred of the American government began in 1992 after the battle by Francesca Carpenter " " S ' «- " ' " ° " " Randy Weaver were killed because they belonged to the Christian Identity group. " The Christian Identity believe Jews are children of the devil and Aryans are God ' s chosen people, " Dees said. The membership to the racist group was not the cause of the FBI and ATF investigation, but rather was Randy Weaver ' s involvement in the selling of sawed-off shotguns. The murder of the Weavers caused other white supremacist to fight against : what they call the ZOG, Zionist Occupied Government, and the NWO, New World Order. According to Dees, their purpose is to save " God ' s chosen people. " Due to the rise in membership of hate groups. Dees enforced his already exist- ing Klan Watch and Militia Task Force to tape conversations and meetings held by the Militia Movement. " These people have tremendous potential for violence, " Dees said. " Our gov- ernment is playing into the militia ' s message. " He believes that the United States tends to underestimate the influence that these groups have. According to Dees, the recent bombings in Atlanta - the gay night- club bombing, the abortion clinic bombing, and the Olympic village bombing — all have one thing in common: they all go against the Christian Identity ' s message. " Real patriots line up at the ballot box, " Dees said. Even though militia groups have a passion to cause great harm. Dees believes that the United States must " keep the door open to hear these people. " The only way the United States will be able to deal with hate groups is by listening to them and chal- lenging what they have to say. Dees closed by saying, " We have to trust our government because it separates us from totalitarian regimes in the world. " Civil Rights Leader Visit 291 STUDENTS, WORKERS PRO The NC Public Service Workers Union (UE 150) decided to meet Molly Broad Wednesday by protesting outside Reynolds Coliseum. Chanting " unionize, don ' t privatize " and " hey, hey, what do you say? UE 150 is here to stay, " about 40 union members or sympathizers reminded the new president of the UNC System about its concerns regarding downsizing and privatization. • ' We came here to raise awareness about a number of issues, " said Saladin Muhammed. organizer of the UE 150 in North Carolina. " Workers are very con- cerned and apprehensive about their future with privatization and downsizing. " Muhammed went on to say that the union would like a moratorium placed on privatization until each school in the NC system can come up with a five year plan on the subject. He would also like to see Broad address eight action proposals that the union has come up with. Included in the action proposals is a call for Broad to respond to workers grievances, end institutional racism, pay service workers a living wage and to meet and confer with workers ' representatives. Barbara Prear, president of the UE 150 and chair of the UNC housekeepers, echoed similar sentiments to Muhammed. " We want Molly Broad to know some of the grievances of the workers, " said Prear. " We want [the universities] to tell us where they are going on privatization. They know what they are going to do, but they won ' t tell us. The workers need to know if they are going to have a job. " The union is also concerned about alleged instances of apparent hate crimes and discrimina- tion against union workers. " Workers have a right to organize under the First Amendment, " said Muhammed. " Right now, we don ' t have the right to negotiate, but we are working on that. " According to Muhammed, there have allegedly been three separate instances since January, 1997 at schools in the NC system in which a noose has been found at the working site of an African American employee, including one at NC State in February. Howard Glenn, a former housekeeper in Wood Hall, said he was fired by the university for inadequate work. He also said the university would not let him file a grievance about his dismissal, despite the fact he collected over 30 letters of support from students in Wood Hall. Glenn suspects he was fired for joining the union. " I am out here to support the union and to try and get my job back in Wood Hall, " Glenn said. Steve Bader, an organizer with the UE 150 said that the main goal of the protest is to get Broad to listen to the union ' s worries. " The main thing is to recog- nize the union and have a meet-and-confer relationship. We would like her to hear workers ' concerns on a monthly basis.

Prior to the Inauguration Ceremony of Dr. JVloJly Broad as the new presi- j Wbcnt of the UNC System on Wednesday, April 29, 1997; protesters gathered outside Reynolds Coliseuni students Protest at Inaug:uration 25 3 r 1 pi Photos by Jamie Stevens MB ] CM 1 L, a , TMl ' A proposal has been issued by Randy Lait, business manager of dining services, to create a program with will allow students to use AllCampus cards off campus. Following the example set by Duke. UNC-Chapel Hill, and Appalachian State University, the program would allow students to use their AllCampus cards in most Hillsborough Street stores. Although the program is still in the early stages of development. Lait estimates its activation to be early summer. 1997. To obtain this service, students will receive an extra stripe on the back of their AllCampus card. Lait said. This second stripe will be a teller or ATM stripe, which means that money represented on the card will be drawn directly from the students ' bank accounts. By adding the extra stripe, the ATM and AllCampus cards are consolidated into one convenient card. Lait said. This card can then be swiped at all participating stores, much like a debit card. It has not yet been determined which Hillsborough Street businesses will accept the new consolidated cards, Lait said. The idea of such cards is still in the planning stages, and will not be discussed thoroughly with Hillsborough Street businesses until the card is approved by NC State ' s administra- tion. Lait said the university has to go through area banks because NCSU is not allowed to assume that degree of financial responsibility for students. This policy stems from a statement issued by the state attorney general, which says, " universities are not permitted to assume the role of a bank. " " We will never be able to have AllCampus cards where money is put onto it through the university, " Lait said. Appalachian State, which works with BB T to provide students with off-campus services, has become the working model for NCSU ' s off-campus services, Lait said. However. Lait wants to see a broader system than ASU ' s at State. " We hope to work with more than one bank to provide students with more options when spending their money along Hillsborough Street, " he said. AllCampus cards could be used at businesses off campus next year. Story by Erika Smart TO EXPAND AU Campus Cards Expansion 2V3 TurbochargeYour Future.

As graduation looms closely ahead, I long to be a freshman again. A freshman who stays up late and parties every night. Someone who talks on the phone about this and that for hours on end. A freshman who cuts corners and studies at the last minute. Problem is, I never did any of that. And now I want to. Somewhere I developed this intense responsibility, and it hasn ' t made my life much fun. Weeknights are off limits to hanging out; after all I had class! True, for one-half a semester I was carefree and actually took the time to hang out. Then I looked at my " friends " and realized that none of them did anything related to their major. They drank the night before tests and couldn ' t understand why they failed. They scoffed when I joined clubs related to my major. " What a waste of time, " they said. So I did a freak thing and ditched them. They had no direction and I didn ' t like that. Their resumes could consist only of terms like " hung out, partied and worked for a summer at TJ Maxx. " Definitely unimpres- sive. After all, they didn ' t have the sense to look ahead. As a struggling sophomore, I couldn ' t see the light at the end of the tunnel anymore than they could. But I know it was there. Now I ' m at the end of the tun- nel, and the light just came out of nowhere, and I didn ' t take the time to notice it. I was much too dedicated to my major, which, by the way is communica- tion. I blame this on my professors. They drilled into my head that if I didn ' t work| hard and intern, then I wouldn ' t get a job. So, intern I did. This extreme dedica- tion resulted in me giving up any sense of a life. I worked 30 hours a week at WRAL my senior year and interned for a brief time at Citysearch. My last sum- mer of freedom was spent like this: class, Technician, News Services internship, and working retail at this place I ' ll now refer to as hell. Wow! That was some summer! Natural light never got the chance to be exposed to my skin. I probably] suffered from fluorescent burn. The summer before that, let ' s see - I worked at Technician and WKNC, the campus radio station. Add to this classes, extra pro- jects and various clubs, and that equaled no life! The thing is, I made fun of people who had spare time and who spent time relaxing. The term lazy comes to mind. I couldn ' t imagine having a day off. What would I do with 24 hours off in a row? It ' s unfathomable. Even having off for six hours in a life is a luxury to me. I ' ve crammed more into a day than some people can cram into a week. If you don ' t believe me, just ask to see my day cal- endar. Seriously, I ' ll show you. Some people ask if it was worth it. Well, I got the first full-time job I applied for. I ' m not a peon; I run my own department at a magazine. Pretty impressive for a 21 -year-old. But that ' s just my point - I ' m only 21! I ' m sup- posed to show up for work hung over and needing aspirin because I was out too late. As if! So, here I am. I have a resume to die for, but no life. Yet, I was a model WORDS OF WISDOM by Dawn Wotapka college student to my parents. They ' re bursting at the seams with pride in their accomplished daughter. Accomplished at the books, yes. Accomplished at close friend- ships and hanging out? No. For a while, I forgot how to socialize! When was I allowed to be a kid? The answer is, I chose not to be. I know no one will ever tell anyone this, so I ' ll be the first. Enjoy life. Stop and smell the roses. I didn ' t and I ' d give anything to be able to do it. Unfortunately, I ' ve been thrust into the real world, and I have to work at my job for a year before I ' m allowed to stop and smell anything. 302 Epilogue Epilogue 303 IN MEMORIAM - FIFTH CREEK PRESBYTERIAN.

Your study, research and hard work have earned you a North Carolina State University degree. Now, it ' s time to begin your careers as scientists, teachers, administrators, engineers, and pro- fessionals in the many fields of study available at NC State. In the years leading to a NC State degree, the members of the Class of 1998 distinguished themselves with numerous re markable achievements. Included in your class are Caldwell Scholars, a Park Scholar, University Scholars, University Fellows, Teaching Fellows, Phi Beta Kapps, Phi Kappa Phis, and Ail-American Student Athletes. For many of you, the knowledge gained during your years at NC State has benefited the community. You have mentored fel- low students, enriched us with contributions to the arts, given us proud moments on fields of athletic competition, and strengthened this institution with your leadership. NC State is proud to have enrolled so many distinguished students who have conducted meaningful research, published scholarly arti- cles, and studied abroad to prepare for the challenges of the global marketplace. This year brings to a close my tenure as Chancellor of NC State. In this, my final message as Chancellor to a graduating class, I encourage you to be open to all of the possibilities that life offers. The NC State community and I wish each of you a fulfilling and prosperous future. Sincerely, Larry K. Monteith Chancellor 312 Epilogue LOR LARRY K.

So. what exactly is an editor ' s note? And does anyone really read it? Traditionally, an editor ' s note has included praises and criticisms, positive and negative thoughts, hopes and dreams, and even some complaints. Well, this year, I wanted to be a little different. It goes without saying who I owe thanks to for getting through this year — and I hesitate in naming names, because if I forget someone, and I surely will, then 1 will be in horrific trouble!! Furthermore, it would be unprofessional to use this avenue to criticize or lash out against anyone, for this book will become part of the history or North Carolina State University. Two years ago when we began the process of rebuilding the yearbook, sales were down and awareness of the book around campus was extremely low. During the past two years, the Agromeck staff has set new standards for the design and content of the book, not to mention the structure of the staff and overall campus awareness. Sure, there have been plenty of mistakes and lots of learning curves to overcome. And, certainly, there is a lot more to develop. However, the growth that Agromeck has experienced in the last two years has been tremendous and every- day it continues. I hope that I had at least a small part in all of this — and in inspiring the staffs of the future to carry on that " vision. " Throughout the edition this edition of Agromeck we strove to not only remind you of the events and accomplishments of the university and your peers, but also to encourage you to consider some of the issues that we face everyday — not just in our university community, but also in our world community. We sincerely hope that you enjoy this book and continue to support Agromeck in the future. Jennifer C.
