Leadership If I were to characterize my phi- losophy of leadership — what I hope to instill in students, faculty, staff and administrators — it would be the need to strive for personal excel- lence. I believe each of us should be free to achieve at a level consistent with our ability and imagination; to de- fine goals which stretch us intellec- tually; to reject complacency and stagnation; to cultivate our natural curiosity no matter what our job. In short, we should all be able to work in an environment where high expectations are encouraged and where a job well-done is rewarded. To achieve this objective, I favor a decentralized administration based on the assumption that those most closely connected to a particular area of Tulane — academic or ad- ministrative — are most knowl- edgeable about its needs and prob- lems. However, I am ever mindful that we are a university, and that designation implies a singleness of purpose. One of my personal challenges, therefore, is to reconcile the legiti- mate interests and concerns of our separate academic and administra- tive divisions with the overriding ne- cessity to function as one education- al institution, to seek accommoda- tion rather than confrontation wherever possible. As President, I believe that chief among my responsibilities is setting a clear example of my own commit- ment to Tulane and communicating what we are about to alumni and friends, faculty and students, staff and administration, corporate lead- ers and foundation heads. Warmth and hospitality are woven into the fabric of life here, and I believe that this supportive en- vironment is one of our greatest as- sets. Accordingly, I try to demon- strate the spirit I feel for Tulane to all of our constituents; it is a task I enjoy immensely. — Dr. Eamon Kelly President of the University ASB President, Andy Werth, and VPA Pete Edwards are among the leaders of student government.

Student Involvement This year Tulane students were busy singing, tutoring, debating, partying, planning, helping, and generally enjoying themselves. Campus organizations thrived this year with increased member- ships. The leaders of these organiza- tions were generally a close group who provided a positive and enthusi- astic attitude towards student in- volvement. The largest (and probably most visible) diversion was the Greek sys- tem. About 40 percent of the under- graduate student body belongs to these spirited groups. They participated in a variety of activities: Greek Week, mixers. Children ' s Hospital Fair, campus service activities. Fall and Spring formals, painting (and repainting) local elementary schools, and rais- ing money for their national chari- ties. There seemed to be no doubt that going Greek was once again " the thing to do. " Membership in fraternities and sororities, and other campus organi- zations, was definitely on the in- crease. CACTUS had a record year and TUCP increased its member- ship. The Direction staff ' s early ad- vertising and preparation paid off when they sold out every night for the first time in years. Involved students debated the student salaries issue, recognition of the young Americans for Freedom and stadium site utilization. It was gratifying to see students arguing and caring about these and other problems that arose on campus. A college experience should be more than academics because much knowledge can be learned outside of a classroom, and at Tulane it was. — Susan Kalishman Panhellenic Council Chairman Kappa Alpha Theta members Mari Ofe Rodriguez and Michelle Mirrabelli are among the fifty-one percent of Undergraduate students who belong to greek organizations on campus. Crowds of freshmen and transfer students pack the Riverboat President to listen to the Cold during Orientation weekend. 5,000 balloons were released before an early season football game, part of the ASB sponsored spirit drive.
