M^^^^d^ : ^D^ Our years at Stern are something never to be taken for granted. We have a small student body which has enabled us to receive a more individualized education. We have been given the chance to study diversified topics from fencing to Jewish Medical Ethics. We have had yahadut served to us on a silver platter, and anytime or anyplace we reached out to it has been there. Most of us probably will not appreciate any of this until one day we will turn around, and find ourselves in a community outside of this University. Something we must never forget is that Stern has given us the ability and knowledge to become Jewish leaders. So what stands out about the class of ' 81 in particular? We were the first class under the new universitywide departmental structure. We were the first class for new and exciting majors like information science, business, accounting, economics and a wide variety of shaped majors. We started intramurals. We are the 26th graduating class of Stern College for Women. As our days of Stern life draw to a close at 245 Lexington avenue, we can look back with pride that we have graduated from Stern College for Women as independent Jewish women. We are into a new decade, and it is a new era for us. We are the leading Jewisses for the future. Never forget the path we have taken nor the friends we have made. And in ten years when we take this yearbook down from some dusty shelf to reminisce our years here, let us hope that some small spark of youth can be brought back to us, and make us smile.

si t m I We have made it! Somehow we have survived four years of late nights, midterms and f inals, 3:00 a.m. nine course meals, blind dates and messibahs. In between all the fun and glamour of the big apple we have learned a lot. Some things that we will never forget, and others we probably won ' t realize for quite sometime. Ourcollege years have molded us for our future giving each of us the abil- ity to reach out and prepare for the long road ahead It seems like yesterday we were frightened young freshman learning the ins and outs of Stern College. Who would have known that the elevator in the dorm does stop on the third floor were it not for an upperclassman to show us? How would we know what courses or teachers to take? And once we made our choices how could we possibly figure out those complicated registration forms? Now they all seem like tedious tasks but, back then they were important We have made ties with people who have become our best friends. Whether it is a fellow student, faculty member or our families not one of us could have survived our stay there without them. They have given us support at times when we did not know where to turn. Sure we have trained ourselves to be part of the working world. We have studied some area or topic of interest well enough to call it a career But added to all of the typical college experiences, here at Stern we have received an extra dimension of growth We have become stronger Jews. It is an area of importance to all of us which was linked the whole student body together

It is rare that we tind a person who is a true " Aishet Chayil " ; one whose devotion to an impor- tant cause or institution is sincere and outstand- ing. As we entered Stern College in 1977 so too did Dr Karen Bacon accept the position of dean of this school. Her dedication to the improvement of this college has been immense. As a Stern Col- lege for Women alumna, and the first woman ap- pointed administrative head of the unit, Dean Ba- con has been a model for us to respect and admire The graduating class of 1981 would, therefore, like to dedicate our yearbook with love to Dean Bacon. Dr. Bacon graduated from Stern College as valedictorian of the Class of 1964, and obtained her doctorate in Microbiology from the University of California in 1968. She has been a National Institute of Health Predoctoral Fellow (1966- 1968). and a United States Public Health Service Postdoctoral Trainee (1968-1970) Her studies continued as a research associate at Indiana Uni- versity, Department of Microbiology (1972-1975). In December, 1978. as Dean of Stern College for Women. Dr. Bacon was appointed Acting Universi- ty Dean of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. She has recently been appointed as a Fellow in Academic Administration of the American Council of Education. Along with her scholarly background in Sci- ence. Dean Bacon has brought an administrative talent to Stern College. She has helped formulate various programs which have proven to be benefi- cial to the standard of education here at Stern. Among them are, the Judaic Studies Core Pro- gram, and new career oriented majors like Nursing and Accounting. Dean Bacon has also served as the lead person in new joint programs with the undergraduate and graduate divisions of this Uni- versity. As we leave the hallways of Stern we take with us many fond memories, one of which is that we have gotten to know a superb individual who has taken an interest in acquainting herself with the student body, and greeting each one of us with a warm smile. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dean Karen Bacon, and wish her hatzla- cha in all her future endeavors.
