This was my first year both as a Templar staff member and as an editor. I am not going to bore you with the twisted adventures I had in the process of doing this book. But I will share one piece of advice — Nothing is ever as easy as it looks. I would like to thank everyone who made this book possible — Kate Bozich. my advisor; Darren and Kevin in CMC; Myrtle, at the News Bureau; everyone at Sports Information; and last but not least my staff. My staff (you all know who you .ire) did some amazing things when the deadline had me questioning, crying, and stressing. My staff is incredible — trust me the Templar is not a one woman show. Our theme, " In Transit, " represents the constant progression of the University and of peo- ple — specifically you, the graduating class of ' 98. It is also a play on the urban University (you know mass transit). My first goal was to finish the book. My second was to make a book that would make you laugh, remember, and maybe even become nostalgic. Since you ' re reading this, I obviously achieved my first. I hope as you turn the pages of " In Transit, " I achieve my second. Good luck and best wishes, Patricia Carrington Steel beams pierce the sky, an old traditional church becomes the site of advanced high-tech learning, the term " undecided " transits from the muddled indecision to clear definite decisi on, and North ' Philadelphia!! children are cared for. What could be the cause of such great change I say " Temple Town " . In the past two years the old Temple of high-tech reformation and learning. As one heads down 13th and Montgomery the visic Or should rs and sped into a world teases the imagination. Tuttleman, a $31 million project, embodies " smart " classrooms, 1,900 student stations, three lecture halls, six com- puter teaching labs, a 100 station Scholars Information Center, a reading room, and a huge student lounge and cafe :itt temple looking onto a grand atrium. The learning center is named after Edna Shanis Tuttleman, a Temple alumna, and wife of Stanley C. Tuttleman who contributed the largest individual gift Temple has ever received for a project of this magnitude. Heading up the steps of Curtis Hall into room 113, students now enter the new Academic Resource Center. This facility, headed up by Jodi Levine, Education, offers various programs that available to students rector of First Year Programs, and Miguel Gonzales, director of Continuing id students in discovering the major that best suites them. Services that are c Information Library to research majors and careers, informational work- shops on various majors, and mentoring programs establishing a solid link between students and persons within the university, the local community, and the workplace. Exiting Curtis Hall and heading North up Park Mall, one is confronted by a curious newly renovated Gothic style church. a church choir that gathers within the building but Temple students piously heading to new high-tech computerized smart classrooms with remote sites for teleconferencing and on-line access. The building is Shusterman Hall, the law school conference center, named after Murray Shusterman, a dis- tinguished Philadelphia attorney philanthropist and Temple alumnus. Shusterman dedicated $1 million dollars in adjunct with the six decades he has devoted to Temple University as a student, faculty member, alumnus, trustee, lawyer, and benefactor. In addition, Shusterman Hall consists of a large multipurpose room, four seminar break-out rooms, and a caterers ' pantry. Finally, hopping on a campus shuttle and heading straight up North Broad Street brings us to the new Temple University Children ' s Hospital on the Health and Allied Science campus. Temple University no longer staffs the pediatric department at St. Christopher ' s hospital but has created its own children ' s hospital to undertake the problems of North Philadelphia ' s children. It treats cases like low immunizations rates, ineffective prenatal care, high incidents of lead poisoning, low birth weight, and high rates of infant mortality. The 60-bed facility will do more than administer to the physical needs of the community but educate, through outreach programs in city schools about trauma prevention, prenatal care, and lead poisoning. -Ivy Edlow I V •• ' .. n « If V v ■1ft4i Ht yv • • • • r •mi ? 1 " T " E of temple There ' s a buzz in the air. Everyone on every street corner is talking about it. It has been the talk of the town. Billboards on trains and buses have alerted us to its arrival. It represents the advent of a new era in Temple history. Every owl knows its name: The Apollo of Temple. One might ask, " What is the Apollo of Temple? " To be sure, it is a monolith. It is larg- er than one might think. The four building project consists of a convocation center, a student recreation center, a community center, a new 1200 space garage and the remodeling of Vivaqua Hall (formerly Seltzer Hall). The Forum is the arena portion of the Apollo. Although Temple will primarily utilize the Apollo, others will make use of its resources. " We ' re trying to make it more of a regional attraction. ..we ' re trying to provide enter- tainment which may not be available to everyone right now, " says Beth A. Lindquist, the Executive Director of the Apollo. In October, the Apollo hosted the Beaux Arts Ball. Every year the Foundation for Architecture chooses a site that is either under construction or restoration. Although the Forum holds a crowd of 10,000 (plus), it retains an intimate atmosphere. [ " here isn ' t a bad seat in a house. And if that isn ' t enough, the Apollo is armed with the latest stadium technology. In early December 1997, (he Forum opened Us doors to the first home basketball game. Opening night was spectacular, complete with fireworks and a sell out — a mere 10,206 tans in attend. in; e Besides Temple athletics, the Forum serves as hosl to I he Rage. Philadelphia ' s profes- sional women ' s basketball team. In the future, there are plans in the works to present profes- sional boxing. The Forum does not only serve as a Sports arena but as a venue tor concerts, comedians. and even the i in us I rom . s pel choirs to jazz ensembles, there are events on the bill to satisi everyone ' s palate. In the past artists wrestled with the dilemma " t finding a center which would aCCOm- modate the right number of peo ple. The Forum in just the right size and it offers a spectacular theater in the round set-up. To satisfy the cry for more recreation space by students, the Independent Blue Cross Recreation Center was built. Temple now as an exclusive recreational facility with state of the art equipment including larger aerobics and martial arts rooms, racquetball and volleyball courts, and an indoor track. Located directly above the Forum, the indoor track offers runners and walkers a panoramic view of the city. In April the ground was broken for The Entertainment and Community Education Center which is a three-story Headhouse, housing a jazz club and restaurant, community educational programs for youth and elderly area residents, and other University activities. Coupled with other improvements, the Apollo helps to push Temple In Transit into a new era. - Benjamin Hassell Temple ' s Ambler campus has many exciting changes in it ' s future. The most recent change is the appointment of a new Dean, Dr. Cheryl Boyer. Dr. Boyer was formerly the Director of Temple University Harrisburg, and she will now be direct- ing not only Ambler, but Temple Fort Washington as well. Dr. Boyer ' s main goal is to expand the staff and the curriculum at Ambler. The newest programs being offered are certification for nursing and meeting plan- ners. The campus is also being renovated to help attract a larger enrollment. West Hall is being renovated to house the advising and registration departments, amongst others, so that all the student services will be in one location. This will make it more convenient for students to take care of their school affairs. In addi- tion, a new learning center is in the works which will contain extra classroom space, conference rooms for students, and new computer labs. Dr. Boyer hopes to strengthen the ties with Bucks, Montgomery, and Delaware County Community Colleges so that more local students will be aware of what Ambler has to offer. Collectively, these improvements should not only retain students but entice community college students as well as freshman to continue their education at Ambler. Aside from academics, Temple University Ambler has been given a new look. Last spring, a beautiful, newly designed entrance to the campus was added. Upon entering Ambler, students are greeted by white latticework surrounded bv colon- nades and climbing vines. Magnolias, azaleas, irises, day lilies and red bud all bloom around the brick walkway. Beautiful landscaping is a signature oi the Ambler campus because it is the home of the University ' s I aiuiscape Architecture and Horticulture program. Temple has maintained this program for almost 40 years and each vear the department showcases an exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show Forty acres of Ambler serve 10 fesr .. ' . .- je r jv .V v JBT as outdoor labs. The formal gardens, the pride of the campus, are accented by red hibiscus and amaranth hopi red foliage. Bright flowers such as goldstorm, magenta globe, orange impatiens, white zinnias, and blue-spike indigo spires line the gardens. Temple University Ambler has a strong future of growth ahead of it. With Dr. Boyer ' s new ideas and programs, the campus will certainly continue to flourish. Main Campus ' artistic cousin, Tyler School of Art, is mirroring the rest of the University with record high enrollments, outstanding student achievements, innovative programs, and new facilities. Despite the shadow of last year ' s controversial plan to move Tyler from its suburban campus in Elki ns Park to the urban Main Campus, the school continues to provide a serene and fertile atmosphere for the creativity that is Tyler. i I m Tyler, like the rest of the University, is expanding " on-line " . This spring new courses on Web page design were offered during Weekend Art Workshops. Tyler librarian, Andrea Goldstein, recently created, " Electronic Resources on Art, " a web page that offers hyperlinks to useful resources for Tyler students. On-line guides such as " Artsourcc " and " Fine Art Forum " provide a variety of art information. The site also includes links to museum sites. Utl taiKS :: ac i mi One of Tyler ' s newest faculty members, Dermot MacCormack, contributed his expertise to the depart- ment by instructing a first-time Multimedia class in the spring. MacCormick assisted the students in design- ing projects for the Internet as well as creating CD-ROMs. The course encouraged students to look beyond traditional graphic design outlets, such as magazines and billboards, and emphasized the utilization of the computer as an important communication medium. Tyler is also boasting a new Graphic Design lab, a ren i, and much-needed improve- ments to the Cera ass Department. The hot glass studio, where students blow, cast, and fuse their glass creations, has undergone renovations. The work area now has better light, ventilation and most impor- tantly, more space. Also this fall, the Exhibitions department tried something innovative to attract public attention. Tyler teamed up with Beaver College and the Cheltenham Center for the Arts to offer the suburban public an opportunity to explore the local galleries all in one night. The program, modeled on Olde City ' s First Fridays, is held once every six weeks. The Graphic Arts and Design Department welcomed Hester Stinnett as chair after the retirement of Alan Kloss last spring. The department is currently making many student The 1998 U.S. Figure Skating Championships committee selected Tyler students to design large-scale props featuring Philadelphia that were used in the Core States Center. Graphic Design students also worked with area architects to d... banners which are now displayed inside the P.pollo of Temple. Tyler School of Art has experienced a positive series of changes in the past few years. Plans for improvement and growth are always in motion; the faculty and the students will continue to work hard to guide the institution into the 21st century. Besides its bells echoing across campus every fifteen minutes to let you know when you are five minutes late for your 8:40 and when your 1:10 is finally over, the Bell Tower surrounds a nucleus of activity on Temple ' s Main Campus. Director of Student Activities, Arnold Boyd, explained why so many activi- ties take place at the Bell Tower. " Everybody goes by or passes by the Bell Tower at some point along their path, " he said. " It is inevitable at some time during the day you will pass this struc- ture. Also, in between classes, the Bell Tower is a prime location for reaching Temple students. " The Bell Tower has quite a history which dates back to 1969. The Bell Tower was built somewhat in the middle of campus on purpose to encourage people to have a meeting spot or a central location to bring many people together. In the Fall of 1997, Temple held a Rock and Roll Bowl for the students. Many huge companies came onto Temple ' s ca mpus to participate and enhance the students knowledge of music. Rolling Stone magazine came and presented a music trivia game for students. This was a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the day outside and mingle with fellow students. Starting with the Kick-Off Carnival in the fall, student organizations use the Bell Tower to publicize their causes and events. They hand out flyers and give speeches, to bring attention to their organizations. Two to three times a year, the University sponsors rallies around the Bell Tower. Unions, policies, and political candidates are often the focus of these rallies. Right before the Homecoming football game each year, there is a pep rally around the Bell rower. Complete with the band and cheerleaders, this year ' s rally was i ailed Fall Sports )c ' . There were activities like a shun dunk contest and a box- 14 H JLilMilll A to by Dorn Reppert ing ring for students. Always the highlight of the Spring semester, the Spring Fling takes place around the Bell Tower in mid- April. Amateur bands chosen by the student activities committee perform. Outside corporations sponsor promo- tions, student organizations set up tables, and various food and drinks are available to the students and faculty- There are games to play, foods to experience, and music to hear. Many companies give away free gifts to students. Lori Lahnemann •a s x. a. iTHfifc l e As every Temple student knows, our school has many distinguishing characteristics the Bell Tower, the ever-present lunch trucks, SAC, and the Owl ' s Nest. But there are many strange and unusual things that the average Temple student doesn ' t know. After four (or more) years we bet you didn ' t know: •The voice that rings out, " The signal is green to cross Broad Street " at the corner of Broad and Montgomery is the voice of General Colin Powell. •The Pi Lambda Phi house hasn ' t always been the home to wild Thursday night par- ties. Formally the John Stafford Mansion ( and now an historical landmark) Pi Lamb was host to some of the area ' s most distinguished residents including John Wanamaker. •One night, in 1918 Russell Conwell stopped into a class and said, " The owl of the night makes the eagle of the day " Later, a student came to class sporting a banner with the same slogan. On that day, the owl was unofficially adopted as the mascot. •Temple ' s colors were originally blue, cherry, red, and gold but cherrv and white were adopted in 1903. •Alpha Kappa Alpha, established at Temple in 1955, was the university ' s first African-American sororitv. •On October 6, 1981 the Central Alliance Agency announced it would recruit Temple grads on campus. However, after a protest and coverage by the Philadelphia Bulletin, the CIA withdrew from campus. •II is rumored that if you go to Park Mall and stand on the black circle facing the owl statue you will be able to hear an echo. However, no one standing outside the circle will hear it. •Temple ' s logo used to be a round seal with the Commonwealth building in the cen- ter. When Peter I lacouras became president, he decided I ' emple needed a fresh new logo. He enlisted eight Tyler students, " The Logo Team, " , n . they created the now famous iple " T. " It has been over ten years since the " T " was adopted and it has appeared on I he ( osby Show. • Temple founder Russell Conwell wrote over 40 books, founded Samaritan (now lemple University) hospital, and (ought in the Civil War. •In Philadelphia Magazine ' s " 30 Best Colleges " issue, they stated, " You know you ' re a Temple Student when you love bragging that your crime stats are lower than Penn ' s. " •Temple famous alums: Bill Cosby, David Brenner, Bob Saget, Lynne Abraham, John Street, Dailv News editor Zach Stalberg, WPEN,WMGK,WMMR general manager Dennis Begley, Advanta CEO Dennis Alter, and Jones New York CEO Sideny Kimmel. •Temple ' s main campus is nearly the size of Europe ' s smallest country, Vatican City. •John Phillip Sousa conducted two concerts at the Academy of Music in 1902 for the benefit of Temple ' s debt fund. •In 1881, P.T. Barnum ' s " Greatest Show on Earth " was held at Broad Street and Columbia Avenue (now Cecil B. Moore Ave.). •The bells in the Bell Tower were forged in the Netherlands. •In the first year of World War II, 1,600 students dropped out of Temple to enter the service. Seven thousand war vets enrolled in 1946 for the fall term. TEMPLE HISTORY cont. • In 1962, Columbia Records released the " Glorious Sound of Christmas " record with t he Philadelphia Orchestra and Temple University Concert Choir. It became the fastest selling classical album in the history of LP ' s. • In 1924, Temple tried to get Knute Rockne to coach the Owls. •Latin and Greek were entrance requirements in 18 l )4. •During a tour of Europe in 1898, Russell Conwell wrote that he missed Philadelphia pretzels. •Gertrude D. Peabodv, the first Dean of Women, complained in 1930 about student behavior on the steps of the dormitory at night. She stated, " Such wholesale and unabashed love-making is a bit over- whelming even to Park Avenue. " •A street in Hatorey, Puerto Rico is named Temple University. •In 1910, with Temple deeply, in debt, Russell Conwell proposed selling the University ' s real estate. He wanted to move the campus to what would become the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, with land provided by the city and facilities by the state. The Department of Sports Management and Leisure Studies introduced a new major this year. Undergraduates can now receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management which will prepare them for management positions in the theater, sport, restaurant and hotel industries. Internship experience, at places like the Academy of Music, Mariott Hotels, and Walt Disney World, is an integral part of the program. Students can pursue also a minor in business from the school of Business and Management. The School of Business and Management also added a new major. Students can now major in Entrepreneurship, a program chaired by David Deeds. Students are taught such skills as marketing, analyzing financial research, and presentation planning. Because the slots are few in the Entrepreneurship program, all of the students are evaluated at forty-five credits to decide their suitability to the major. - Jen Schnabel •In the early 1930 ' s, track and field legend Jesse Owens wrote a letter to T.U. coach Ben Ogden expressing an interest in attending Temple. •The base of the Bell Tower has an encasement of gypsum rocks brought from the farm of Ali Hafed in Pakistan, the source of Conwell ' s inspiration for his famous " Acres of Diamonds " speech. •The Templar yearbook takes it name from the Knights Templars, the order established in the 12th century in Jerusalem to protect pilgrims and the holy Sepulcher. The name signifies high ideals and service. •The football Owls were undefeated in 1934. - Mandy Feingold ■ ( niiprji til.it inns on graduating!

The goal of Mostar 2004 is to design and implement a plan to rebuild the civil war ravaged Bosnian city of Mostar by the year 2004. Temple juniors Michael T. Euker, Ira Jones, and Heather Freeman Radel, along with architecture professor Brooke Harrington, joined 20 other student researchers from various universities to help the people of Mostar rebuild their lives. Temple students contributed a detailed design and site plan for an International Center for Aid in Reconstruction. The design consisted of a communi- ty center to serve as a hub for residents and architects working on the reconstruction project, a resident counseling area, housing, studios, several courtyards and adminis- trative space. The students integrated traditional Bosnian architectural features, such as earthquake resistant design, with modern materials, such as precut concrete slabs and metal roofs. Project Mostar 2004 is supported by the United Nations and the Bosnian gov- ernment. It attracts students from leading architecture programs world-wide, placing Temple architecture students among the best in the world. - Marcetas Decatur .. ■ ™ 1 — -m y Ml J t f the Wanted: Students to take courses in their pajamas, to complete their degrees from home and trade campus-based meetings for ones in cyberspace. Think of it. You ' re taking a required 3-credit architecture course but you don ' t ever venture on campus. You are within reaching distance of your own personal food truck (the refrigerator) and you can turn in that tough writ- ing assignment at 3:00 a.m. Sound like Utopia? It was just that for over 400 Temple students who have signed up for courses through the Online Learning Program since its inception in 1996. Distance Learning courses are nothing new but the technology that fuels them has changed rapidly in the last decade. What was once a highly complicated and specialized area of teaching has become a substantial part of many university ' s ' curricula. Never one to be behind the curve on technology, Temple ' s Online Learning Program has enjoyed exponential growth. Just over a year ago, the department began offering two online courses to about 20 students. From this mod- est beginning, computer and videoconferencing-based courses now offered at Temple number over 65 classes from a variety of disciplines. But exactly what is involved in register- ing and " attending " an online course? " Students sometimes have misconcep- tions about taking a course completely via a computer, " says Catherine Schifter, Ph.D., Director Faculty Fellow of the Online Learning Program and an Associate Professor of Occupational Therapy. " Sometim es students believe that a course without actual class meetings will be less work than a traditional one but nothing could be further from the truth. " Photo by Bri.in Krislel While the idea of freeing up 3-4 hours a week of class time might leave a student with the impression that an online course is less work - it is actually equal to or in most cases, more work than a traditional course that meets in a classroom. Students are expected to actively contribute by posting email responses to issues raised in class. Most pro- fessors require a certain number of postings each week from the students and consider these when calculating grades. Those who decide to sit back and only read their classmate ' s comments will find themselves left behind. Students are also expected to use the resources available online - the Internet, Listservs and Bulletin Boards - as support materials for the issues that are being covered in class. " The ideal online candidate is self-motivated and can budget their time effectively while working inde- pendently, " reports Conchetta Stewart, Ph.D., Faculty Fellow for the Online Learning Program and Assistant Professor of BTMM. Dr. Stewart, teacher of two online learning courses, says that it is not only the student that has a heavy workload in cyberspace learning. " It ' s more work for the professor as well, " she says. " Not only do you have the normal workload of grading assignments and papers but you also have to read every email posting and direct the online discussions. " Probably the best thing about taking an online course is its flexibility. Those students who are good time managers will be most successful in online courses. It is necessary to be able to allot the proper amount of time to the course much like what is needed for a traditional classroom situation. The big difference is the students will not see their classmates or their professor face-to-face each week. While this may seem to many like a cold, imper- sonal way to run a class, it is not that way at all. " I try to keep in close contact with my online students, " says Dr. Stewart. " I will often put photographs of my students on the class website to help connect a face with an e-mail address. " Some professors are even more accessible to students than in traditional classes because of the constant email discussions and nearly daily feedback the professors dispense. So now after the tremendous growth in the Online Learning Program in just four semesters, what ' s on the agenda for the future? One of the most significant and exciting developments at Temple is the formation of Teaching, Learning, Technology Roundtable (TLTR). This think tank-style group is the first one in the United States. It was formed when the Association for Higher Education came to Temple seeking an organization to be the innovator for the development of technology-based teaching methods. The TLTR has taken on the agenda of sculpting the Online Learning Program into more than a randomly-chosen package of unrelated courses but into a comprehensive sys- tem with a degree completion focus. " We know that there is a lot that ' s not understood yet about how to do this well, " admits Dr. Stewart. " But, we are constantly reviewing feedback from professors and students on what works and what doesn ' t in online classes. " One of the concerns of the online professors is the availability of research materials to students who do not come to campus regularly. While Paley Library has site license for such commercial information services as CYBER CLASSROOM cont.. Lexis Nexus, students who are taking online courses do not have access to this prohibitively expen- sive service unless they make the trip to Main Campus. This will soon change as Paley upgrades to offer more of these services to students who accesses the library ' s informational databases online. What about those students who sign up for the traditional classroom-based courses? What opportunities do they have to learn these highly-marketable technology skills? Fortunately, every- one has the chance to gain some cyber experience in their Temple college career. Dr. Stewart, for example, is one of the many professors who integrates computers into her classrooms. She teaches a Communications Theory class in a " Smart Classroom " equipped with a personal computer, projection monitors and overhead viewers to keep the attention of the more than 100 students in her audience. " I use videos, overheads and Powerpoint to help students visually connect with the topic of the day, " explains Dr. Stewart. " I would lave one day to have some type of interactivity from each student in these classes via an electronic device at each desk. " It sounds like the university of the Jetsons is coming closer to Temple ' s campus each day. MB Kurilko 4 II] UWil :l S Wil i Spending a semester in the heart of North Philly is not the only option of achieving a higher edu- cation in a different world. Temple offers many opportunities in studying abroad. As Peter Liacouras has said, the sun never sets on Temple University and with the announcement of a new program beginning in Seoul, South Korea, this seems to be more true than ever. Currently there are four programs in the United Kingdom, two in Germany, and one of each in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Paris, France; Rome, Italy; Tokyo, Japan; Seoul, South Korea; and Accra, Ghana. Many of this year ' s graduates have explored their options and discovered that it was one of the highlights of their life. Traveling the world and learning at the same time is a combination that can ' t be beat. Dr. Michael Hooper, a political science professor who spent three years in Tokyo at Temple ' s cam- pus in Japan, agrees. Having the opportunity to experience the Kabukiza Theater, one of the most pres- tige theaters in the world, is a chance of a lifetime. Temple ' s study abroad programs are as diversified as the ethnicities and cultures found on cam- pus. The programs offered allow the student to chose which culture and place they want to experience The Rome program offers undergraduate studies in Architecture, International Business, and Visual Arts, which includes six semester hours in studio art, three hours of art history, and either three or six hours in another choice of electives. To assist its students in their studies, Temple Rome keeps close working relationships with the British Academy, the American Academy, and Italian art galleries. Also included in the program are field trips to neighboring cities such as Florence, Venice, Pompeii, and Naples. Founded in 1966, the Rome program was started bv the Dean of Tvler School of Art, Charles LeClair, and has continued to grow over the past thirtv years, educating more than 3,000 students. The classes are taught in English by Temple faculty from main campus, along with faculty from Italy and other European countries. The campus is housed in a building called the Villa Caproni which faces the liber River located in the center of Rome. The Temple Japan program it is unique not only because it teaches American students but it also has been educating Japanese students too. For more than fifteen years, Temple lias been educating Japanese students the English language. There are currently 1,500 students matriculated in the Japan pro- gram and 90% are Japanese. American studies, Economics, Political Science, History, and Religion are the studies offered for the undergraduates. As for the graduate level of studies, there is an executive MBA and Ed.D. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Other courses offered vary from theater and journalism to art history and biology. Another program offered at this site is fall semester sophomore engineering program. This inten sive course of study includes some of the best engineering courses in the world along with an introduc- tion to the Japanese language and culture. This program is coordinated with Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania under a U.S. government grant by the U.S. -Japan Center of the University City Science Center. STUDY ABROAD com.. Temple ' s London program is through the School of Communications and Theater and offers mass media and theater curriculum along with a strong liberal arts emphasis. The program began in 1969 and oper- ates on a similar basis as the Rome program. A faculty advisor travels to London each fall and summer to edu- cate students in the British culture. The summer program is held in the British capital and offers classes in mass media. The campus is located in London and is owned by Florida State University which rents space for classes and flats for students to live in. Location is one of the main advantages to this program. The campus, on Great Russell Street in the West End of London, is down the street from the Trades Union of Congress and is also in the middle of the theater district and blocks away from the trendy Soho section of London. The program offers classes in the cinema, mass media, the theater, British history, politics, and Victorian literature. Most instructors are British, and the program is small enough that the students and instructors become a small family during their visit abroad. Temple ' s Seoul program is still being negotiated, according to Denise A. Connerty, Interim Director of International Programs at Temple University.The program will be for students interested in an executive MBA which is also affiliated with the Hanyang University which maybe available in the Fall of 1998. For 47 years, Temple has been sending students to Paris in the summertime to study at the interna- tionally known Sorbonne. This programs offers classes in French, literature, art, historv, and other programs. The classes are taught by French instructors. While there is a faculty advisor from Temple living in Paris, the program is run through the French university. Living in Paris can be very expensive and with this program there are three different programs avail- able-pension, where exchange with native Parisians is very likely, living with a French family, or staving at Foyer International Des Estudiantes, which is a dormitory. Temple ' s five-week summer program in Ghana is offered for students who would like to learn about artistic, historical, and literary life in West Africa. The program is based in Accra, the capitol of Ghana, at the University of Ghana and is taught by Dr. Abu Shardow Abarry, associate professor of African American Studies at Temple. Other Temple programs that are available are exchange programs with the University of Puerto Rico; University ol East Anglia, Norwich, England; University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany; Eberhard-Karls Universitat, Tubingen, Germany and also the Tvler School of Art program with Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. This myriad of opportunities provides Temple students with the chance to expand their horizons and gain new perspectives while continuing their educational experiences. - Lori A re hut -j a 5 30 r . m I ■ GRADUATES A N S I T As the class of 1998 approaches graduation day, there is time to reflect on the Temple University tradition that began in 1884 with Rev. Russel Conwell ' s organization of a night school for seven eager young men. The graduation ceremonies of years past provide an interesting contrast to those of present-day. This year marks the first class to graduate in the Forum at the Apollo; the new arena at Broad and Montgomery Streets which was completed in December 1997. Such a significant event marks a transition in Temple ' s rich history. The first Commencement exercises were held in 1888. James Maclnnes, recorded as the first graduate of Temple College, led his peers down the aisle to receive their certificates. The first degrees, however, were not awarded until 1892, when 18 night school students each received a Bachelor Degree of Oratory. The first graduation of the day school was in 1893, held in Grace Baptist Temple at Broad and Berks streets. The June 13, 1893 issue of The Philadelphia Press described the Temple as ablaze with light, and the plat- form inside was decorated with flowers, ferns and potted plants. Rev. Conwell ' s speech, directed toward the 14 graduates, focused on the continuing development of Temple. He hoped that the institution would follow the suc- cessful growth of other great colleges throughout the country. An inspirational orator, Rev. Conwell had previ- ously enlightened audiences with his famous " Acres of Diamonds " speech. He had plans for Temple University, and his successors have maintained his creed of progression. Rev. Conwell would certainly be proud as Temple I niversity triumphantly approaches the millennium. Of course, in order to achieve advancement, a few changes have taken place within the University. The first Templar appeared in 1923, quickly dispelling the widely held opinion that Temple could not meet the already established standards of other universities ' annuals. In 1927, Temple became the first school in Philadelphia area to offer an undergraduate major in journalism. New buildings have been dedicated and new campuses have been constructed. The popularity of the school rose to almost thirty thousand, and Temple has assumed its rightful place in the world of higher education. This year ' s Commencement is not only a gateway into the future, but also a mirror into the past. There is the traditional " Salute to the Graduates " speech, delivered by the president, or more recently, Dean Adams While high-profile speakers are not traditionally invited to deliver an address, BUI Cosby, a Temple alum holding . n honorary Doctorate, usually says a lew words to the graduates. One student will be selected to make a speech at the ceremony. The graduate must have at least a GPA of 3.0, spent minimum of two years in leadership service within the Temple community, ami successfully represents the Conwell Tradition. Of course. Temple I niversity ' s . lass of 1998 will have a unique graduation experien e than that ol the first tew .lasses ol temple College It is fairly certain that Bernardo Palitz ' s ess.iy entitled " Russian Development ryrannicall) Repressed, " delivered at the 1893 graduation, will not appear on the program this year. However, the same sentiments ot integrity, tradition and aspiration tor the ongoing progression of Temple University will shine a -i a. through as the graduates prepare to make their departure into the world.

Theodore Z. Davis, b ' 58, JD ' 63, President ' General Association 1998 TEMPLAR ANNUAL I fi Many students attend Temple University but most do not live on campus. Out of Temple ' s thirty thousand students 2,750 live on Main Campus. Most on cam- pus students start out in Peabody, Johnson or Hardwick Halls. These buildings accom- modate mostly freshman and transfer stu- dents. By living in Johnson or Hardwick you j have the convenience of a store and cafete- f ria right in the building. In Johnson, Hardwick and Peabody everyone living on the floor shares a communal bathroom. After the first year on campus most students try to move to the New Residence Hall, which is the newest dormitory Temple has to offer. The New Residence Hall offers suites shared by four people. The suite includes two bedrooms and two bath- rooms, one includes a shower and sink and the other has a toilet and sink. The surroundings give a more " at home " impression. The disadvantages- New Residence Hall is the furthest dormitory from the class- rooms and in the winter New Res feels like Africa and in the summer it feels like Antarctica, so don ' t for- get your fan or comforter. Upperclassmen tend to pick Temple Towers as home. Temple Towers offers an apartment style set- ting that has 3, 4, or 6 person apartments which include bathrooms, living rooms and a kitchen. Towers is located on the opposite end of campus and people tend usually utilize the kitchen instead of trekking all the way to the cafeteria. There are several advantages to living on campus. You can establish closer relationships with peo- ple because you live together and see each other on a regular basis. Socially, there are many on campus activities that bring people together as well. Temple has enough people on campus to provide a communi- ty within the blocks it occupies. Commuters that attend Temple usually come to classes during the day and leave when they are over. School to them is very similar to a 9-5 job. When the day is done, home awaits. Many students start in the dorms and then end up in Center City, North Philadelphia, and the Fraternity and Sorority houses near campus. Temple offers commuter coffee breaks and SEPTA discounts. The Student Activities Center serves as a commuter haven during the day offering food, television with cable and a game room for entertainment purposes. - Lisa Ford and Clarissa Vazquez :.

From Olde City art galleries to Delaware Avenue clubs, Temple Students have seen it all. VI 4 4 L1 4 Ntt ;e, or an espres- First Friday On the first Friday of every month the tiny galleries lining the streets of Olde City open, allowing the public to wander in and out, exploring works ranging from original Warner Brothers ' eels to antique furniture. Coffee Shops A great way to unwind after a long week of papers and lectures is to sip a cappuccin „ _, so at one of Philly ' s cafes. The Quarry Street Cafe is the coziest of them all, with a sofa, a piano, shelves of books and an abundance of board games. Clubs From jazz to goth, the Philadelphia club scene offers a more fast paced outing. At Chris ' Jazz Cafe on Sansom Street, live music drowns out all conversation (except between sets). And on Delaware Avenue, the home of the area ' s hottest night life, the dancing never ends. The Philadelphia Museum of Art At the end of the Ben Franklin Parkway, an avenue modeled after the Champs Elysee in Paris, looms the Art Museum. Run up the steps with your friends Rocky-style, and tour the many exhibits. And remember, Sundays col- lege students get in for free. The Philadelphia Orchestra Conducted by Wolfgang Sawallisch, the Philadelphia Orchestra was updated for the 90 ' s. A new stage, new orches- tra pit, and a new floor are just some of the renovations the 140 year-old Academy of Music building has under- gone recently. Chinatown The next best thing to the vendors on 13th street! The magnificent arch that marks the official beginning of Chinatown leads you to wonderful restaurants, and gourmet grocery stores. You didn ' t always have to leave campus for a great time procrastinating. There always was a movie play- ing at SAC and a crowd at The Grill (Who can beat a 75 cent flick and $1 drafts?). The Main Campus Program Board also sponsored (cheap) concerts (remember Run DMC) at the Owl Cove. As a Temple student, there was always plenty to keep you away from that dreaded term paper. K h ' y - Jennifer Schnabel A Temple THEATER Through the years, the Temple Theater Program has continued the tradition of presenting immensely entertaining, emotionally provocative productions to Temple and the surrounding community. The 1997-98 season was no exception. The carefully constructed sets, enormously talented actors and dedicated directors contributed to a string of polished, professional performances. The theatrical year began with " The Lady in Question, " the product of playwright Charles Busch, directed by Kevin Cotter. The play, appearing in Randall Theater, is a World War II comedy about a movie actress pitted against the Nazis. It was a huge success. Lanford Wilson ' s " Fifth of July, " presented in Tomlinson Theater, takes place the day after the nation ' s bicentennial. Not with- out comedic interlude, the play provocatively explores the 1960 ' s, a decade which has played an integral part in each of the character ' s lives. Directed by Jan Silverman, the play includes a wide variety of complex characters. From Ken(Jimmy Blunt), a homosexual, crip- pled Vietnam War veteran, to Aunt Sally (Jamie Hurley), a memory-filled older woman who cannot come to terms with her husband ' s recent passing. " Fifth of July " is a multi-faced integration of underlying human conflict. Other characters add to the colorful mixture, such as Gwen(Christie Parker), a pill popping, hyperactive woman with flashy clothes and a deep-rooted cynicism and June, a young single mother who wistfully recalls her earlier years. The acting was superb as the actors slowly revealed their character ' s history and persona to the audience with emotional dis- parity. The set, though unchanging, provided an appropriate and well planned forum for the interactions between the characters. " Fifth of July " was a powerful demonstration that appeared of the diverse talent at Temple. Alice Children ' s " Wedding Band " led the audience through a heart-wrenching tale of racial barriers and a love that knew no boundaries. The description that appeared on the playbill — " A love hate story in black and white " — perfectly conveyed the emotional tone of the production. The year is 1918, the place is South Carolina, and there is a law prohibiting interracial marriages. Julia (Rachel Leslie) is a new- comer in a small, Southern black community, and she is quite secretive about her love lite, which is virtually unacceptable to the other outspoken tenants. Her lover of ten years happens to be a white man, Herman (Antony Hagopian) who must discreetly keep her away from the hard, disapproving eyes of his family. The play deals with the torment and continuous obstacles such a couple must face in a harsh prejudiced society. There was not a dry eve in the theater as thy audience experienced the sadness and despair as the story unfolded However, the hilarious antics of the supporting characters provided .1 temporary reprieve from the intensity ol the tragic plot. Amina Robinson was outstanding as the opinionated, sometimes hysterical Mattie, a young woman supporting her young daughter and anxiously await- ing her husband ' s return from World War 1. All in all, " Wedding Band " was a triumph. Directed by Connie Norwood, the amazingly crafted performance was Temple Theater at its best. Tomlinson Theater also hosted the Philadelphia Young Playwrights Festival, a presentation of plays written by local and mid- dle and high school students. Directors and actors from the Temple Theater participated in the event, cultivating Temple ' s strong rela- tionship with the Philadelphia community. - Jennifer Schnabel lunch time The sounds of a New Orleans jazz club filled the Owl Cove in Mitten Hall this year.

Midterms arrive, late-night study sessions begin, and there is an abundance of Halloween parties. However, this year the month of October marked Temple ' s seventh annual Latino Heritage Month. To kick off the festivities, the Spanish band " Cara Nueva " performed at the Bell Tower. Also present were representatives from Latino student organizations, and there was traditional Spanish food to sample. The rest of the month brought plenty of activities, such as a panel discussion, a Chilean poetry reading, Hispanic concerts, and even an art exhibit. The students at Tyler held the exhibition to honor Latino artwork, and many of the works were avail- able for sale, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and photographs. Another exciting part of the Latino Heritage Month was the influential speakers. Actor Edward James Olmos spoke at the Ambler campus on the topic " We ' re All in the Same Gang. " Nelson Diaz, the first Hispanic Common Pleas Court Judge, also lectured at Ambler; his speech was entitled " The Hispanic Heritage. " Lastly, Dr. Ricardo Algeria, director of the Center for Advanced Studies of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, spoke at Kiva Auditorium in the Ritter Annex about " Roots Formation and the Status of Latinos in the Caribbean. " Many student organizations worked together to organize Latino Heritage Month, including the Latino Student Association, Yuca Yeque Puerto Rican Alliance, the Gamma Phi Sigma fraternity, the Chi Epsilon Sigma sorority, and the Sigma Delta Psi sorority. The overall theme of Latino Heritage Month was " Latinos Unidos Rompiendo Barreras, " meaning " United Latinos Overcoming Barriers. " " The goal of Latino Heritage Month was to define our status as Latinos m the community, and the university. By doing so we united as Latinos to celebrate our her- itage create awareness of support services, and support the goals ol the university in the recruiting and retention of Latino students, " explained Yemele Ayala-Santiago, Latin II en tag i ' Month chair person. - Mandv Fein go Id 90 The Temple University Greek Association (T.U.G.A.) was established in 1986 and was formed to promote academia, strengthen community bonds, and enhance the social life for stu- dents around campus. TUGA is a self-governing body that consists of numbers from every Greek organization which totals easily over 400 people. These Temple students have to be under nationally recognized organizations who are under the Inter-Fraternal Council, Panhellenic Association, and the Pan-Hellenic Council. To join the student must have a 2.25 minimum G.P.A. TUGA plans events for the Greek organizations such as Greek week, a holiday party in the fall semester, and a Council Step Show in the Spring. TUGA acts as an administrative board for the Greek organizations. Within the Greek organizations as a whole there are separate governing bodies that are in charge of the women, men, and African-American sororities and fraternities. The largest gov- erning body inside the Temple University Greek system is the Inter-Fraternal Council (IFC). The IFC unifies and strengthens the Greek community. From community services to Rush and other campus events the IFC acts as a liaison between the university and the individual fraternities. The IFC covers all aspects of Greek life. In 1909 the National Interfraternity Council was found- ed. This body is in charge of all of the colleges and universities throughout the country. As for Temple ' s campus, the IFC governs eight fraternities on campus which include Sigma Pi, Pi Lambda Phi, Sigma Nu, Kappa Delta Rho, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Sigma Alpha Mu, and Sigma Phi Epsilon The Panhellenic Association governs three sororities on campus that are Delta Zeta, Phi Sigma Sigma, and Alpha Epsilon Phi. The Panhellenic Association is in charge oi strengthening the Greek system at Temple and throughout the country. It is also m charge of mediating between national sororities on campus and participating in social services which include vol- unteer work and fundraising. This body is a member oi the National Panhellenic Conference. The members of these a sm iations must remain in good academic standing, provide service to the community, and tol- low in accordance with the national rules and regulations I he Pan-Hellenic Coun 1 1 is the governing body ol the African American fraternities and sororities. The fraternities are Kappa Alpha Psi, Alpha Phi Alpha, and Phi beta Sigma. There are two sororities which are Delta Sigma Theta and Sigma Gamma Rho. 92 The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) was formed in 1930 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The NPHC was formed more than twenty years after the first fraternal movement among African-Americans. Historically, the local chapter of Sigma Pi rst fraternity on Temple ' s campus. Sigma Pi was founded in 1908. It became a member of Sigma Pi National in 1909. At that time, the fraternity initiated Temple ' s founder, Dr. Russell N. Conwell, into its brotherhood. Today, the Sigma Pi house stands tall on Broad St. dedicating itself to Temple ' s founder Russell Conwell. Sigma Nu is one of the newest fraternities. - Tamra Chase Here ' s a wrap-up of some of the year ' s most newsworthy events — just-in-case you missed the evening news due to sleeping, studying, or partying. •Besides being the highest ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government, United States Secretary of State Madeleine K.

For these students, rec services offers a myriad of activities including intramurals, club sports, informal recreation, aerobics, aquatics, adapted recreation and special events. Temple University has an excellent intramural program where students, faculty and staff can partic- ipate in a number of sports. These sports range from basketball and volleyball to softball and floor hockey. The intramural program is structured in such a way that it can accommodate Temple ' s large working popu- lation of students, faculty and staff. Club sports offer a way for the segment of the student population, not on a varsity team, to compete in a variety of sports. The current clubs include sports such as bowling and karate to rugby and volleyball. Rec services also offers informal recreation, aerobics, and aquatics programs. These include open rec times offering running, weightlifting, and swimming, programs for high and low impact aerobics. Adapted recreation allows open hours for swimming, wheelchair basketball, physical fitness programs. Special events, tennis clinics, horseback riding and rowing, are also offered throughout the year. The newest addition into the rec services family is the new recreation facility, The Independence Blue Cross Student Recreation center. This facility holds a 280 meter, 3- lane indoor track, four racquetball courts, large recreational fitness spaces, and a restaurant, housed within The Forum at The Apollo of Temple. The future also holds plans for another recreational facility that will house basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, as well as a pleasant lounge area. - Brian Essig club How you measure success, in sports is usually based on wins and losses. That is not the case as far as the Temple University ' s club teams are concerned. According to Linda Buonanno, assistant Director of Recreation Services success in the club teams is measured by participation. " I don ' t measure success by the wins and losses, " Buonanno said. " Right now I would guess that our biggest clubs are men ' s and women ' s rugby, lacrosse and ice hock- ey. Martial arts are coming along because they are in the new Independence Blue Cross Student Recreation Center (IBC). " At the present time there are 11 club teams and thev are badminton, bowling, ice hockev, karate, men ' s lacrosse, rugby (law, undergraduate and women ' s), swimming, Tae Kwon Do and men ' s volleyball. " As far as wins and losses women ' s rugby is the most successful. " Buonanno said. One sport that is growing each year in popularity is lacrosse; it has been around for three years now. The newest club on the block is the ice hockey team that at the time of this writ- ing had a winning record at 6-3. They are a team that is playing against more established Coached bv Mike Palermo. the team plays all its games at the Twin Rinks in Pennsauken, New Jersey. The longest running teams are karate and men ' s rugby. But as far as the most suc- cessful in the way ol championships has to be karate, Shato Kan style. They had a string of seven straight national championships broken this year, Thev are under the tutelage ledge of master (Teriyuki) Okazaki, who is an eighth degree black belt, " He is the one of the most respected teachers of this form ot Karate, " club President [onathan Willis said. " He has been practicing Shato Kan for over 50 years. " The team is made up ot three people that represent Temple University. But they also have six undergraduates who participate in individual events. Some ol the partici- pants are llirigo Okuno and Shiugi Takagi. rhe other martial arts program is the lae Kwon Do Club which meets on a regu- lar basis in the IBC Martial Arts room. " II you want to gel into great physical condition, " Club spokesman Greg Elliott Said. " Then come out tor the club. " 98 To join these clubs the only criteria is that you must be a Temple student with a valid ID card. All the clubs have different requirements depending on the level of involvement. " The standards would depend on the league that team plays in, " Buonanno said. " Bowling could require three credits while ice hockey could be full-time undergraduates. It is really sports spe- cific, each sport has its own guidelines. " The club teams are allowed to use fields that are owned by the University. Recreation Services gives them fields as a way to keep the costs down. But some teams have to travel to play their games. Ice hockey plays and practices in I ' ennsauken because there is no hockey rink on campus. The rugby teams rent a field in Fairmount Park because Temple does not have any grassy fields. " I do my best to try and get them permits to use that field, " Buonanno said. " Anything that somebody wants to do that we don ' t have. We try to help them get that space. " Ed Reiner A game just wouldn ' t be the same without the band, the cheerleaders, the dance team and of course the owl. The Temple University Diamond Marching Band performs their pre-game and half-time shows at every football game. The pep band performs at every home women ' s and men ' s basketball game. Both bands are under the direction of Dr. Brad Townsend, Director of Athletic Bands. Complete with the Color Guard and the Diamond Gems, the band performed tunes from the musical Chicago and from the movie Independence Day (complete with an alien), as well as a Mardi Gras themed show for the homecoming game. Temple cheerleaders are kno.wn for their school pride and incredible energy at football, basket- ball and volleyball games. This year the cheerleaders have a new coach, Moe Duckworth, and a new assistant coach Andrea Wyfish. Coach Duckworth hopes to bring the squad up to the next level of com- petition. With new recruits, returning squad members, and a lot of school spirit the cheerleading owls will reach this goal. The Temple Diamond Gems, the University ' s dance team, perform at every football and basket- ball game. A nationally ranked team, the Gems are coached by head coach Shelly Pope and assistant coach Wendi Reynolds. Patricia Carrington I W v i yp 4 tf • ' 4 One of the most celebrated parts of Temple University is the athletic programs that it has to offer. This year was no excep- tion. The Athletic Owls soared to new heights. With the opening of the Apollo com- plex, the future for Temple athletics looks even better. Fall The 1997 Temple Volleyball team had its best season ever. They were awarded their first birth at the NCAA Tournament and went a perfect 22-0 in their Atlantic 10 sched- ule. The lady Owls were the only Atlantic Ten champions Temple had this fall. A well bal- anced attack of experienced players and new comers helped Temple knock off almost every opponent it faced. Head Coach Bob Bertucci continued with the winning ways that have followed him throughout his volleyball career. Seniors Sharia Bryant, outside hitter middle blocker, and outside hitter Tamu Cooper provided the leader- ship Temple needed to make the tournament. This great team will not be forgotten in Temple sports history. The Temple University Field Hockey team was able to play with a level of maturity under sixth year Head Coach Lauren Fuch. Lead by seven seniors, Temple went 10-10 on the year. Goalie Deb Brown (all American), defenders Renita Bergy and Gina Dafazio, midfielder Katrina Wolfe, and Forwards Cherfia Nouri, and Alex and Claudia Ovchinnikof (all region, all American) played together for four years and will be missed next season. Temple Women ' s Soccer coach in his fourth year, said good-bye to his first ever-recruiting class here at Temple but it certainly will not be his last. This year ' s team looked fast, efficient, and was focused on their goal of improvement over seasons past. The Women ' s Soccer team finished its season at 4-14-1 (2-6 A-10). Kim Fitzgerald scored three times against St. Bonaventure to become the Owl ' s all-time leading scorer. Fitzgerald ' s hat sed next season. trick in this game was just one of many highlights the team had this season. Temple Men ' s Soccer had a fabulous season appearing twice in the national rankings at No. 19 and No. 25 — this, after posting a record of 3-14-2 the year before. Temple University Men ' s Soccer coach Hugh Mclnaw was named the 1997 Philadelphia Soccer S Senior Ken Clark was honored as PSS Academic Player of the Year and fresh- man Ryan Haney was the recipient of the Rookie of the Year Award. In addition junior Ray Destephanis, sophomore Michael Skahan and Haney were named 1997 Philadelphia Soccer Seven all-stars. Mclnaw, in his third year coaching at Temple, guided the Owls to a 10-7-2 record and a fourth PSS title. Temple certainly got over the hump this year and is now poised to be a national powerhouse. Ron Dickerson completed his final season as Temple Football coach by just narrowly missing fourth place in the Big East and an automatic bowl bid. In the past for Football, ;, only five before this season in the Dickerson regime, but for only the third time this decade, the Owls have had better than a two-win season. The Owls were 3-8 this year — their best mark in Dickinson ' s five-year tenure and their best record since a 7-4 finish in 1990. Temple also finished 3-4 in the Big East — their best mark since joining the conference in 1991. Many coaches around the league and the Temple is better than thei own and on par with big-name programs. Although the Football team had greatly improved, the Temple Athletic Department decided to remove Dickerson and hire Bobby Wallace as the new head coach. Bobby Wallace helped shape a NCAA Division II dynasty at the University of North Alabama over the past 10 years and will definitely first major bowl win. Please Note: Due to the early March Templar deadline, both the winter and spring sports wrap-ups were writ- ten without the benefit of knowing the outcomes of the seasons. Winter The Temple Men ' s Basketball team stole the show again this year. Under future hall of famer, Coach John Chaney, the Owls extended their post season tour- nament streak to 15 seasons in a row. Senior Lynard Stewart used his experi- ence, to help guide a supporting cast of future NBA caliber players in their first Atlantic Ten Championship in nearly a decade. Temple knocked off severa nationally ranked teams throughout the season and enjoyed several weeks in the top 25 themselves. This year the team had a very strong bench — something Temple has not had in years. Though seniors Stewart, Laws, and Keid will be missed, the future looks even brighter for the men of Temple hoops. The Women ' s Basketball team took to the court under the leadership o seniors (en Webster and len Ricco. Unfortunately, this strong backcourt ot seniors was not enough tor the Owls to win tlie Atlantic 10. This year ' s team was young and lias several talented players with several years ahead ot them at Temple. Do not be surprised it the women 104 EON W t start rallying the men for attention very soon. The Temple Men ' s Gymnastic team, in its 71st season, again showed why they are a top varsity team at Temple. They have been champions of the EIGL for nearly a decade. The squad consisted of only 11 members this year but the quality of their performance outweighed the importance of quantity. Head Coach Fred Turoff relied heavily on his seniors Darin Gerlach, Jason Krane, Aaron Vexler, and Devlin Franklin to help make this year a success. Several individuals compete on an international basis. You may be watching these guys in the summer Olympics someday. This year ' s Women ' s Gymnastics team was able to produce much bet- ter as a unit, than they had in years past. Head Coach Ken Anderson had 10 gymnasts return along with three seniors, Addie Collins, Meala Berman, and Elizabeth Shymkiw. Temple also had three new comers including senior Jaime Krane. With all the depth it no wonder the worn- ens gymnastic team had a successful season. Coming off of last years third place finish in the Atlantic 10 the team aspired to win its first Atlantic Ten championship this sea- son. Under the direction of, foil coach Nikki Franke, and Epee Coach Zoila Palacio, the Temple Fencing Team continued its success. The foil squad this year was full of experi- Photo courtesy of Sports Information FENCING com.. ence. Led by the one-two punch of seniors Marisa Barnes- I Hopkins and Debbie Currie the foil team really stuck it to all the opponents it faced. Beckie Dhonet was the lone senior on the epee squad this season, but had lots of help from her strong teammates. The team helped celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NIWFA — the oldest organization in the country dedicated solely to women ' s athletics by placing 4 of the top 5 finishers. Look for the Owls to keep winning for main- years to come. Spring Baseball head coach, lames " Skip " Wilson, and the J assistant head coach, Joseph " Butch " McNally had an overall record in 1997 ot 16-31. In 1996, the team had an A-10 record ol 9 12 and were 3rd in the East. The head coach tor the Men ' s Crew is Gavin White and the head coach for the 106 Women ' s Crew is Jamie Gordan. Both crew teams have traditionally finished in top positions. Golf head coach, John MacDonald, is now in his 26th season. The team was 4th in the 1997 Atlantic 10 and 20th in NCAA East Regionals. Men ' s and Women ' s Tennis is led by head coach Andrew Sorrenfino and assistant coach Mikael Rodlfsem.The 1996-97 Men ' s record was 17-8. The 1996-97 Women ' s record was 7-12. Men ' s and Women ' s Track is led by head coach Chuck Alexander and assistant coaches E ■ m m W George Phillips and Franklin Harwell. The men ' s team finished 6th in the 1996-97 Indoor Conference Championship and 5th in the Outdoor Conference Championship. The women ' s team had similar rankings in the Indoor and Outdoor Conference Championships, taking 5th place in both. The Women ' s Lacrosse head coach, Kim Ciarrocca, coached her team to I l i l »7 record ol 14-3 and a national ranking of 4th. The assis- tant Ki.iihcs air Reid Watson and Rebecca [oseph.
