From the possibility of human cloning to the banning of smoking in all public places, issues were raised in the minds of the public. All over the world people were voicing their concerns over the direction that the country was moving in. While some chose to remain silent, others demonstrated with rallies or protests. With a campus as large and as diverse as UCLA, a wide range of reactions resulted in the changes that took place. In order to capture the sentiment on campus, questions were asked and student ' s voices were heard. Df Audrey 26 Voices The Rcond and final phase of the 1 994 Smoke-Free Workplace Act was put into effect on JaniMy 1 , 1 998, The resutt was that smoking was no longer permitted in bars, taverns, and fcning clubs, Local westwood bars and restaurants that were directly affected included Maloneys, Madison ' s, Monty ' s, and Westwood Brewing Company. For the eighteen percent of Californian residents who smoked, this act took time to get adjusted to. In order to get a consensus of how UCLA students felt, the question was asked. , , what is your ,. reaction to prohibited? " 1 love it! I don ' t like to smoke. I don ' t think people who smoke should have to suffer from people who do! " -Danny Farmer, third year History major " 1 don ' t like it. It limits establishments ' right to dictate the way they run their business. " -Christian Schontche, fifth year Biology Philosophy major " It ' s wonderful! I ' m all for it. I don ' t think it ' s right for people to have to breathe in smoke who aren ' t smokers. It ' s uncomfortable. " -Robin Phinney, second year Political Science major " I ' m really happy. I work in a restaurant bar. It ' s nice to not have to come home and smell of cigarettes, or have smoke blown in your face all night. " -Natalie Rodriguez, second year Communications major " I hate it! It really sucks. First they take away smoking in enclosed structures. Bars were our last refuge. Drinking and smoking go together. They took away the last thing we had. If people choose to go to bars to drink and do something that is bad for their bodies (drinking alcohol), then they should expect smoke to be there. " -Judd Kim, fifth year Mechanical Engineering major. SmokeieaWorkplace Act 27 Mike Muckerheide 28 Voices At flDR, skilled athletes were worth more than gold. They attracted publicity and a school which barely could survive on a state budget. They enjoyed praise aches and sportscasters, and represented UCLA as a winning institution. However, star players required special benefits to keep them happy. Many athletes received perks such as specialized academic counseling, free tutoring, and priority enrollment. " Unfair! " you may cry. But UCLA was not the only educational institution to lure athletes with free equipment and academic help, And athletes did acquire sponsors for campus programs, so why shouldn ' t they get a little something extra on the side? We asked a jury of their peers to decide. of athletesfairV " Honestly, from one viewpoint I ' d say it ' s not fair because why should they get any special treatment? But if 1 were an athlete, I wouldn ' t mind. It ' s a double standard, like people saying ' I hate rich people, but I want to be rich. ' " -Nadia Caro, second year Political Science History major " They have all the tutoring and special ins with the professors. . . if they can ' t come to class or take a test, it ' s okay. . . . During their season for the sport it ' s okay because they ' re traveling and they ' re busy, but when they can be in class and when they have time to study, I don ' t think it ' s right. " . ' ! -Jennifer Johnson, thid year Sociology major " What they do as athletes is like a job,- they ' re working forty hours, training. They might get help in their classes, but it ' s really not to their benefit because if they ' re not learning and they ' re not using anything with their degree. I think that a few perks is in line when you consider how much money they make for the school. " -Lakeisha Poole, second year Political Science major " Someone may not have had the best GPA or SAT scores, but they still get into the school because we need them for a sports team, and they get tutors and help with classes. I felt really angry about that for a really long time. . . [now] I don ' t really care. " -Tom Wayson, fifth year Geography major " We ' re allowed to get priority parking over other people, but we still pay for it. Plus we get good workout stuff for free, but of course we should get that. We don ' t get other stuff unless you ' re on a scholarship. If you ' re on a scholarship you ' re a king, basically.

Audrey Shiomi 30 Voices jucation " and " electronic access " were keywords in the College of Letters new program, the Instructional Enhancement Initiative (I.E. I.), which served srgraduate students. I.E.I was aimed to improve student learning through new websites for every undergraduate course. Communication links in each site enhanced student-faculty contact, and improvements were also made to computer labs to accommodate the changes, Sounds like a great plan, right? But what many students weren ' t aware of was the $2,4 million budget, which was funded by a materials fee which cost students $10 - $1 4 per course, Students were asked. . , IS nstrucliona 9 the I % M ;j,;;l Enhancement initiative beneficial " I disagree with the initiative because the university seems to be making decisions about our education without asking for the students ' opinions. It ' s really unfair and it shows how little of a voice we students really have! " -Melissa Soto, fourth year English major " The idea of a more technology-oriented approach to campus resources sounds beneficial, but not everyone uses the IEI or is even aware of it. I think the IEI should be optional. " -Lorrine Chen, fourth year English Creative Writing major " I was not even aware that I paid for this in my fees. Obviously, there are some flaws in making students aware of what ' s going on. Good idea,- bad execution. " vfl PV v W - Luke Phair, fifth year History major " I think it ' s great for the science classes since it saves printing out thousands of handouts. But we already pay registration fees, so why must they charge us even more? " - Chris Lai, second year Microbiology major " I think it ' s a noble initiative and UCLA is really looking out for students in the future. Some people are just being lazy because they don ' t want to bother with computers, but it ' s really so much easier.

It is men taking God ' s power into their own hands and it can backfire. If used for medicine, it has many benefits, but the line between good and bad is hard to distinguish and easily crossed. " V -Yen-Ting Liu, second year Undeclared " I think that cloning is scary because you could easily clone another Hitler. After awhile it would be like any other technology, so it should just be used for good. " -Madhiri Pottahil, second year English major " It ' s fine as long as it ' s mainly used on animals. It ' s okay to be used on humans if you ' re like paralyzed. I think it should only be used for medicine, but if someone uses it for evil, we can ' t do anything about it. " -Brandon Ayanbadejo, third year History major ' The psychological repercussions on the clone haven ' t been considered. It will be damaging if someone grows up knowing they aren ' t their own person. They will think they are living someone else ' s life.

From Welcome Week, which signaled the start of the Fall quarter, to the graduation ceremonies and everything in between, there was never a shortage of action throughout the year. Several drastic changes took place which affected all Bruins. A new chancellor began his reign while I students bade farewell to former school identification cards in favor of the new BruinCard. However, not only major events were considered important. Many day to day or weekly occurrences | were treated as a reason to celebrate as well. " I look forward to the crepes at Farmer ' s Market every week! " exclaimed third year Sociology major Sarah Tran. Be it of grand proportions that captured the attention of the entire student body, or of consequence to I only a few individuals, the year ' s past events provided both excitement and entertainment. The ever present I sounds of on-campus construction served to remind everyone that UCLA was a campus in a constant state of activity and change. -,r. , H New Leader Story By: Catherine Calleja On July 1, 1997, Albert Carnesale became the chancellor of the University of California at Los Angeles. He succeeded Charles E. Young, becoming the eighth chief executive in UCLA history. Chancellor Carnesale now heads an institution of about 35,000 students, 3,300 faculty mem- bers and a staff of more than 18,000, a far greater number of individual members than in his for- mer appointment as provost of Harvard University. In addition to being provost of Harvard University, Carnesale has held positions in industry, Martin Marietta Corporation and government, U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, as well as being a professor at North Carolina State University, and provost of Harvard University. Chancellor Carnesale ' s research and teachings have focused on international relations and national security policy, with an emphasis on issues associated with nuclear weapons and arms control. With such knowledge, he has consulted on foreign and defense policy matters with pri- vate firms and government agencies, including the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Defense, Energy and State, the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, the Director of Central Intelligence, and the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment. On March 1997, when Carnesale ' s appointment was announced, he remarked, " Just how a uni- versity could achieve this level of excellence in so short a time is amazing. My objective is to build on that excellence and move UCLA to the next level. When informed people around the world ask ' What are the world ' s greatest universities? ' that list will include UCLA. " Carnesale ' s first priority as chancellor is learning. " The most important thing for me to do is get around and meet peo ple, hear their inter- ests and concerns, their hopes for themselves and the university. " Carnesale reaffirms has pride and joy of being at UCLA by stating that " UCLA is one of the best universities, public or private. " With high hopes and a huge job on his hands, Chancellor Carnesale will lead UCLA into the next century. Chancellor Carnesale meets with sev- eral students to discuss their concerns. Carnesale stat- ed that it was his goal to get to know the members of the UCLA com- munity. 38 Events Albert Carnesale listens as a student voices her ideas and opinions. Carnesale became the eighth chan- cellor in UCLA history. nursas PICKS story By: Jodi Ezrin Every Thursday morning, hundreds of UCLA students woke up knowing that it would be a good day. The reason for their good mood was not because of the gorgeous girl guy they might see in class or the fraternity parties planned for that night. The real reason for their excitement was because Thursdays were Farmer ' s Market days. Located between The Coffee Bean and The Gap, the Farmer ' s Market, which was open until seven p.m., offered a wide variety of food and crafts. There were many vendors selling fresh fruit and vegetables. " Just picked today, " was a popular motto there. Depending on the sea- son, one could find anything from Asian pears to artichokes. No matter the time of day, fresh apples and oranges were also readily available. A variety of local shops such as California Tea House and other ethnic restaurants often set up refreshment tents. Serving a range of Mexican and Greek food such as gyros or falafals, the Farmer ' s Market was a good place to grab a light lunch. Marcelle Rice, a second year Theater major, remarked, " Every Thursday, my roommate and 1 used to meet up and go to the Farmer ' s Market for lunch. Not only was it yummy food, but it was a good chance for us to spend time together. " Other than food, the open street fair also offered many craft booths. It was the perfect place to pick up gifts or trinkets. There were many clothing and jewelry stands, as well as booths selling hair accessories, ceramic flowers, and hand painted glass bottles. Often times, vintage or antique knick-knacks could be found at low prices. Of course, one could not think of the Farmer ' s Market without conjuring up the image of freshly cut flowers. Whether it was a green or blooming plant, sunflowers or roses, the Farmer ' s Market had it all at wholesale prices. " Whenever I knew a friend ' s birth- day was approaching, I went to the Farmer ' s Market to get her flowers, " said Shelby Anderson, a first year Undeclared student. Be it fruit, snacks, clothing, or flowers, the Westwood Farmer ' s Market had it all. Many students agreed that a trip to the outdoor fair was a great addi- tion to their normal Thursday routine. Looking over the fresh fruits, stu- dents select bunches of grapes. The wide variety of freshly harvested fruits and vegetables at every Farmer ' s Market attracted many people to come and buy gro- ceries. Events Lynn NisJiimura enjoy the refreshments at the Farmer ' s Market Many vendors pro- vide free samples of their product to attract customers to their stands. i RENOVATION Story By: Michelle Chu Bzzzzz! As you reach over to slam the snooze button on your alarm clock, you realize that the droning noise is not from your wake-up call, but from the jackhammer outside your window. Waking up two hours before schedule, you find yet one more gripe about UCLA: construction. Students of the residence halls had much to complain about this year. After extensive con- struction on the new International Students building, many were inconvenienced by the clos- ing of Circle Drive. This detour eliminated the shortcut through the Dykstra basketball courts to the Westwood apartments, causing students to walk the further distance around Dykstra rather than through it. As Bernadette Reyes, a third year English major, expressed, " It sucks. It just seems like once they finish one thing, they start something else. " Other major changes occurring by the dorms included the elimination of Dykstra ' s cafete- ria and the renovation of Hedrick ' s dining hall. Both of these caused further inconvenience to students. In addition to the construction near the residential halls, new students couldn ' t help but notice the bulldozers next to Powell and the mounds of dirt which spread throughout cam- pus. " It ' s annoying because it just never stops, you never get a chance to see a really nice cam- pus, " commented Christine Fernandez, a third year Biology student. However, Bruins who had been at UCLA for several years had grown accustomed to the roadblock, many of them lived further away from campus and were not bothered by the ren- ovations which occurred on campus. " Construction? I thought it was over, " stated Nick Goldman, a fourth year International Economics major. " It ' s really nice now that Ackerman and Powell are done, the little [construction] now doesn ' t bother me at all. " Whether it was renovations in around the dorms or construction along Bruin Walk, the UCLA campus was in a constant state of change. Though the repairs presented problems for some students, all Bruins were eventually able to reap the rewards of having new buildings and facilities. Nevertheless, regardless of the resulting benefits, Michelle Banta, a third year English major, just wanted to know one thing: " Who ' s paying for it? " Construction workers break ground for the building of De Neve Plaza. The $72 million com- plex began early in the Fall Quarter. i 42 Events HL LV S: f . w mm Hb Making her way back to the dorms, a student overlooks the construction site on the corner of Strathmore and Circle Drive. Although some students grew accustomed to seeing UCLA under construction, many were dis- appointed for never having the chance to see it completed. new an d Story By: Wendy Tan Instead of toting around a wallet stuffed full of various I.D. cards, credit cards, library cards, and calling cards, students had the option to stash everything into one card this year: the new and improved BruinCard. The BruinCard was established as an essential form of university identification which replaced the old paper-printed registration cards. The multi- purpose BruinCard not only acted as an I.D. and registration card, but it also served as a library card and offered an AT T calling card option. Additionally, it had the " Easy Pay " debit card option, which was equivalent to the former BruinGold card that allowed students to make purchases across campus without worrying about cash. Long lines curved around the James West Alumni Center for the first few weeks of Fall quarter as all returning students were asked to retake their I.D. photos and trade in their trusty old cards for the flashy new BruinCard. Many students found the design of the card unique, and were impressed that it did not appear like the traditional university I.D. card. " I think the new card is cool because it looks like a credit card and you can show it off to people who don ' t go to UCLA, " commented Layla Khamoushian, a fourth year Psychology major. Not surprisingly, the majority of students were rather apathetic towards the new BruinCard. Lorine Chen, a fourth year English major, readily expressed her sentiments toward the new card, " I don ' t see what the difference is. " One incentive for students to choose the AT T calling card option was a year ' s worth of free membership in Student Advantage. The additional Student Advantage card seemed to defeat the purpose of an all-in-one BruinCard, but it did offer students substantial discounts for movie tickets, plane tickets, and vari- ous shops and restaurants around Westwood Village. Establishing the new BruinCard seemed just another tedious task for busy students to worry about, but it served its purpose of creating a uniform identifica- tion card for the UCLA community while providing cardholders a variety of conve- Looking at the new Bruin Card, students check- out their pictures.

BeRN-AGAIN BROXTON Story By: Michelle Chu Walking into Westwood could be compared to entering a ghost town. The former mini-metropolis once boasted street jug- glers and a thriving nightlife. However, dirt trenches and orange roadblocks were what attracted attention this year. The Westwood com- mittee, in an effort to improve their neighborhood, poured money into new parking struc- tures, shops, and foliage to rejuvenate the dying economy. Unfortunately, to accomplish this goal, construction crews tore apart Westwood Boulevard and Broxton Avenue, two major traf- fic areas. The deep trenches and roadblocks caused chaos for many months, re-routing cars in circles and frustrating drivers. Construction on Broxton Avenue deterred many from frequenting businesses on that street. The boulevard was closed off to cars, eliminating the parking available on Broxton itself. Few customers ventured on Broxton and as a result, many eateries and stores suffered. Since Broxton was blocked off for several months, many did not notice that this route had transformed into an outdoor promenade. The former asphalt avenue which was once lined with parking meters, became a peach paved road dotted with blue accessories: blue wrought- iron benches, blue trash cans, and blue circular shapes with springs dangling from them, resembling modern art pieces instead of bicycle racks. Not a parking meter was in sight. Instead, a new multi-level parking structure complemented the arched doorways of the new shopping strip. Most students observed the changes in Westwood with little enthusiasm. " I appreciate the fact that they ' re trying to clean up Westwood and make it look nice, but it ' s really inconve- nient, " asserted Maryam Baqi, a third year Biological Anthropology student. Fong Sam, a fifth year History major, confessed that many students are apa- thetic when it comes to supporting Westwood businesses. Pragmatically, Sam stated, " We ' re not rich. We can ' t eat I out and go shopping all the time. We have other responsibilities. " It Seems that it will take more than just palm trees to make Westwood the favored locale it once was. Jeremy Afuso Closing down the streets, construc- tion crews made access to many of the stores in Westwood diffi- cult. Stores such as Beyond the Beach offered sev- eral sales to try and attract cus- tomers. I S I Events G.I Digging up the street, workers pre- pare to repave the streets. All of the streets in Westwood were redone i order to give the village a newe look. As part of the Welcome Week festivities, a female group enter- tains students passing by Other Welcome Week activities took place by the dorms and residen- tial suites Warm WELCOME Story By: Karen Yeh Fcr most people, Zero Week was a non-existent week invented by the administration to shorten the students ' summers. However, in the residence halls, Zero Week was more popularly known as Welcome Week. Rather than a shortening of their summers, most resi- dents saw Welcome Week as a great way to settle in and have fun before the rush of classes began. The On-Campus Housing Counsel (OCHC) and the separate dorm governments planned programs and offered many activities for the residents in order to help them adjust to their new home away from home. Although there was some chaos during the move-in days as residents huffed and puffed with dollies and suitcases, the help of OCHC made the experience less traumatic. Vibrant music and plenty of signs helped alleviate some of the stress from elevator traffic and the sad- ness of forgotten teddy bears at home. Each residential building had major Welcome Week events that invited students from all over the hill to intermingle. Sunset Village held a dance outside of Sunset Commons which had a turnout estimated at 600 people. Rieber and Saxon entertained residents with their joint effort for Swing Night, while Hedrick Hall and Hitch held their own night of Mardi Gras. Sproul Hall ' s Karaoke Night allowed residents to be foolish in a friendly setting. Second year Sunset Village resident Nishant Rohatgi, an Electrical Engineering major, stated, " People just got up there, sang their hearts out, and had a great time. People really seemed to get com- fortable with each other quickly. " Welcome Week also included a large technology fair held in Sunset Plaza. Though it was abuzz with music and merriment, there were complaints about the scorching sun as well. Most of the residents were willing to endure the heat in their quests to get all the " freebies " available. Summer Dew, a first year Mathematics major remarked, " It was hot, really hot. I think it was worth it though just to go out there and take the opportunity to familiarize myself with some of the student groups and meet others... the freebies were cool too. " Singing to the crowd in Westwood Plaza, a rapper tries to arouse spirit in the audience. USAC activities were planned to welcome new students. Mike Muckettade Welcome-Week 49 Story By: Meredith Magner When could you destroy a car, throw cream pies at a person impersonating a USC student, and host a bonfire to torch the rival school ' s mascot? Beat ' SC Week provided students with all of these opportunities and more. There were few emotions that all Bruins shared, but the despise felt for anything associated with USC was something all UCLA students could identify with. There was never a more appropriate time to display these emotions than during Beat ' SC Week, an annual event which encompassed the five days of preparation before the " Big Game. " Events sponsored by SAA throughout the week drew masses to Westwood Plaza daily, as Bruins exhibited UCLA pride while exhibiting their hatred for their cross-town rivals. The week kicked-off with a massive slumber party around the Bruin bear in Westwood Plaza, an event attended by the truly die hard. Those who were ignorant about the significance of the days to come were enticed by live bands, which entertained students with music that ranged from ska to rap. The week was also filled with demonstrations of Bruin pride. Throughout campus, students and faculty could be seen wearing UCLA gear and sporting blue and gold colors. The student store was filled with t-shirts that had slogans reminding the students of their six consecutive wins and the fact that USC was inferior to UCLA in every way. Students flocked to the store to purchase t-shirts for the game and decals to place on their faces in order to show their school spirit at the game. Without fail, the destruction of the Trojan car was one of the most attended and enjoyed event of the Beat ' SC Week activities. An old car, spray-painted red and gold, was parked in Westwood Plaza and surrounded by students who anxiously awaited their chance to vent their aggressions on it with a Bruin baseball bat. " 1 was a little taken aback by the event at first because people were being really aggressive, " claimed Desiree Soto, a first year Undeclared student, " But then I got into the spirit of things and got in line for my turn! " Another well attended event was the Beat ' SC rally and bonfire. Students and athletes turned out for the event, which was also organized to recognize men ' s volleyball and women ' s gymnastics, two of UCLA ' s national championship teams. Members of the teams, football players, and coaches spoke to the crowd, inspiring them with even more Bruin pride. " I loved it! It was a great way to send off the fans and the team and get them really fired-up for the game, " remarked Jaclyn Parker, a third year Physiological Science student and member of the cheer squad. Indeed, there were few farewells that could beat the torching of a mock Tommy Trojan which concluded both the week ' s festivities. Throwing a cream pie, a student aims at a person representing a ' SC student. Beat $C Week consisted of many activities designed to let UCLA students show their distaste for USC.

Faces of alumni, students, and other fans sur- rounded the stage, giving their attention to the MC and anticipating the sign to fire up the grill.

Everyone yelled and shouted to the cheers of the hockey, volleyball, and gymnastics teams. No matter how many times the UCLA eight clap was initiated, everyone participated with as much excitement and vivacity as they exhibited the first time around. The hour-long rally consisted of the marching band playing Reel Big Fish music, which excited the crowd and prompted them to dance. First year Undeclared major Ramin Ram claimed, " It was pretty crazy. Everyone had fire in their eyes, like we could attack anyone who was just wearing a red shirt. " In fact, one such person was singled out of the crowd as the MC shouted, " This isn ' t the time to wear red! " The animosity towards USC was especially felt as the long-awaited burning took place. The intense heat from the bonfire further enraged the crowd to exclaim, " Beat SG Six more years! " Anyone who was a stranger to Bruin cheers, quickly learned the popular chants. As the MC began to take off his shirt, presenting one that declared " Six more years, " it was clear that a victory was expected at the Saturday game. Even after the football team had beaten USC for a con- secutive six years, the match still retained the traditional rivalry of past years. Students hoped victory was just around the corner and prepping for the game was an integral part of it. The stage was set and the Bruins were literally " fired up. " The football team was finally given the spot- light and the cheers increased. First years, such as Undeclared student Anthony Gabriel, were awed by the potent spirit. Gabriel commented, " I only heard about these anti-USC rallies. When I actually saw it, the sentiment finally sunk in and I started to feel the same way. " The night definitely accomplished its goal of ral- T ' lying the crowd and increasing the Bruin spirit. Afterwards, it was left to the UCLA football team to prove who ruled Los Angeles. As the Bruins scored their final touchdown of the game, there was no doubt that UCLA would emerge victorious. Increasing school spirit, UCLA ' s mas- cot, Josie Bruin, cheers at the rally. Many students gathered at the rally to show their support lor UCLA in the football game against USC. 52 Events II I ' T | T Burning Tommy Trojan at the Beat SC Rally, flames destroy USC ' s mascot.

The victory not only brought about their seventh straight win over USC, but it also tied UCLA for its first Pac- 1 championship since 1993. " It ' s the greatest thing,- we came here to win the Pac- 10 championship and it ' s unfortunate that we tied and we ' re not going to the Rose Bowl, but we ' re still co-champs and that ' s what we ' ve worked for all season, " commented senior cornerback Javelin Guidry. Guidry led the Bruin defense with 1 1 tack- les and a key fourth-quarter interception. The Bruins lost their chance of going to the Rose Bowl just moments after their victory was sealed by defensive back Wasswa Serwanga ' s interception,- as Washington State defeated Washington. However, any disappointment resulting from the Bruins ' fate decided in Seattle was concealed by the excitement of winning their ninth consecutive game this season. The team, however, was not too phased by the missed chance at the Rose Bowl. Beating ' SC was enough excitement for the day. " I feel great about the game, " exclaimed senior safety Shaun Williams, who had seven tackles and wouldn ' t let the Washington loss ruin his day. " Seven in a row,- I ' m gonna leave as a senior, never having lost to ' SC. " At some parts during the showdown, Bruins fans were concerned about the progress of the team. The game was tied 1 4- 1 4 at the end of the first quar- ter, and still tied by halftime, at 21-21. However, with their spirits high and their faith resting in their boys, UCLA fans knew the team could pull through. The Bruins picked up a 10-point lead in the third quarter, leaving the Trojans trailing behind. Junior quarterback Cade McNown was the star of the show, throwing three touchdown passes, while runningback Skip Hicks ran for one touch- down pass, the 54th of his college career. Leading the Bruins to victory was Head Coach Bob Toledo who beamed, " Our kids did a great job fighting back, never giving in. They have great character, a lot of pride, and they know how to win. " Winning was just what they did, adding one more victorious tally mark to the streak of conquests over the Trojans. Beat ' SC Game 55 tf Story By: Catherine Calleja Having such notable personalities as Tim Robbins, Heather Locklear, and Spike Lee as UCLA alumni, it was no wonder that campus was con- tinually swarming with celebrities making appearances and giving talks. Because of UCLA ' s impressive and distinct structures, as well as its large size, several film and television directors were lured to the campus for filmings. It became evident that UCLA was the place to be for " star " watching. Being students of a large and prestigious university located in the center of all the Los Angeles Hollywood hub-bub, Bruins were provided with a special opportunity to glimpse a realm of " tin- seltown " that others only dreamed of entering. Whether it was TV and movie stars, sports heroes, or hon- ored advocates, many Bruins had the opportunity to see, meet, and talk with their favorite celebrities. Throughout the year, students catched a glimpse of those they most admired or disliked. Such nota- bles as the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Oliver Stone, Ben Stiller, the creators of the cartoon show ' South Park, ' and the cast of the stage musical ' Rent were among the celebrities who paid UCLA a visit. Fans of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. were thrilled when their movie, ' I Know What You Did Last Summer, ' was previewed for UCLA students before the movie opened in theaters. Not only did Bruins have the opportunity to watch the long-anticipated movie, but they were also given the chance to see and talk to Hewitt, Prinze, and the director of the movie. Cang Ly, a first year Undeclared student who was one of the lucky few to see the event, commented, " It was a lot of fun to see them and even have them perform in front of us. The best part was seeing the movie before it came out and getting to see the stars in person, and all of it was for free. " In addition to having celebrities visit the campus, UCLA was the actual site for several major motion pictures. ' Jane Austen ' s Mafia, ' a film that spoofed gangster movies and starred Christina Applegate was filmed at Royce Hall in late November. The sequel to ' Scream, ' ' Scream 2 ' with Neve Campell, Courtney Cox, Sarah Michelle Cellar, and Jerry O ' Connell also . used the UCLA campus for filming. Being at UCLA provided many opportunities for students to spend their time " star-gazing " in between classes. From high powered executives to star-stud- ded movie and film stars to the most influential authors and politicians of this century, UCLA attract- ed them all.

However, to officials, the opening of the Tom Bradley Center was a highly anticipated affair. Being under con struction for over one year, the center was built next to Dykstra Hall on the northwestern part of the cam- pus. Plans for the center included housing a number of organizations, programs and opportunities for both international and local students and faculty. The Bradley Center, named after Tom Bradley, the mayor of Los Angeles for two decades, attempted to follow its namesake in terms of progressive multicultural leadership. Students were encouraged to uti- lize the Bradley Center for both studying and socializing. According to Patricia Webber, Director of Development for the center, " The aim is to produce a com- fortable, welcoming area for international students who face challenges very different from those of native students. " Although many of the programs planned for the Bradley Center attempted to ease the transition from a foreign country to the United States, the center was not exclusive to international students. One of the center ' s main goals was to provide a welcoming atmosphere for both international students and students from the United States, in order to encourage interaction between the two. Students who lived in the residence halls were affected most by the presence of the center when the international cafe opened. Located on the lower level of Bradley, the cafe specialized in cuisine from around the world. One anticipated problem was the cafe ' s capacity to seat fewer than 100 people. Before the cafe opened, rumors circulated that the chefs had been planning menus for over a year. The possi- bility of a Starbucks coffee shop in the cafe, had the students anxious for its opening. The center ' s erection caused some inconvenience to dorm residents who had mixed reactions to the Center. Third year Economics major, Judy Jones noted, ' The construction caused a lot of problems. It was really loud in the mornings, and with Circle Drive being closed down, it was a hassle to get anywhere. " Mark Hodges, a second year English major and resident of Sunset Village, stated, " I really did not mind the construction. Even though it was bright orange and ugly, it will improve with landscaping. Besides, the idea behind it is wonderful. A place for international students and locals to gather was defi- nitely needed at UCLA. " An empty lounge awaits students and (acuity to fill its seats.

Well in Westwood, this occurance was present at many big movie premieres. Westwood became synonymous with big Hollywood movie premieres and famous movie stars. Being just minutes from Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, and West Los Angeles, it became the prime spot for movie premieres of large proportions. Because it was at the foot of a prominent university, Westwood hosted the premieres of such movies as ' Playing God, ' The Devil ' s Advocate, ' ' Batman Forever, ' and ' Conspiracy Theory. ' The atmosphere of these events was filled with intensity and excitement which developed from the throngs of spectators waiting to catch just a glimpse of their favorite celebrities. When ' Playing God, ' starring ' X-Files ' David Duchovny opened in Westwood, UCLA students flocked to witness the event and see the star in person. The Student Technology Center offered a drawing in which students were given the opportunity to win prizes such as posters and passes to attend the open- ing of ' Playing God. ' Kathy Wong, a second year Psychobiology major had an exciting time at the ' Batman and Robin ' movie premiere in Westwood. " I wanted to see all the famous movie stars, especially George Clooney, Alicia Silverstone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. 1 loved the environment... they had the Batmobile and there were skaters throwing souveneir pins at the crowd. ..it was great, especially since I just took my last final that day! " Movie premieres in Westwood were always a fun and exciting event for all who attended, especially UCLA students who had easy access to the theaters, which were all within walking distance from their homes. The large number of people who turned out to preview the newest movie created a charged atmosphere in Westwood. Seeing the movie in a preview showing was an exciting experience because the audience tended to be more energetic and responsive to the movie. It was easy to notice when there was something exciting occurring at the theaters in Westwood because of the unmistakeable hordes of people and security, as well as advertisement posters. Westwood movie premieres served to increase the popularity of the city, in addition to providing the perfect indul- gence for UCLA students needing a much deserved and exhilarating break from their studies.

Festival Story By: Catherine Calleja Anticipation mounted as UCLA ' s Homecoming approached. The activ- ities throughout the week aided in the spirit that ultimately culminated at Saturday ' s exciting football game. One such affair that increased UCLA pride among alumni and students was Bruinfest 1997. Bruinfest 1997 proved to instill pride among the alumni and students. Held the night before the game, the carnival boosted Bruins ' spirits prior to the big night. The carnival was designed for both students and alumni to share in their Bruin heritage and have a fun-filled evening together. The Student Alumni Association (SAA), in an effort to promote the event, gave away free snacks, buttons, and posters. At Bruinfest, past UCLA alumni and current students had the opportunity to relax in an atmosphere of fun, food, and games. There was something for everyone at the carnival, with games galore. From throw- ing softballs at milk bottles, to throwing darts at balloons, many games offered prizes such as stuffed ani- mals. Some students could be seen with stuffed animals under their arms and smiles on their faces. For the more adventurous types, Bruinfest also offered physical games, one of which included jumping inside a large funhouse. Another popular attraction was the bungee cord swing in which people could hang in mid-air and bounce around. Students and alumni waited in line for such attractions, just to get a feel of excitement and danger for the night. Like most UCLA gatherings, free items were a tremendous part of Bruinfest. Sign-ups for credit cards and raffles were offered, and booths housing Virgin Music and Warner Brothers Studios distributed books, CDs, and T-shirts. Items including gift certificates, boomboxes, and special movie screenings were also raffled off to those participants who filled out contest forms. " It was neat getting all that free stuff and finding out about the upcoming movies and other events for Virgin Music and Warner Brothers, " said Taleen Tertzakian a first year Undeclared student. Bruinfest was a homecoming event primarily hosted and arranged by UCLA ' s SAA, who wanted to bring school spirit to current students and alumni of UCLA, and in turn, form an attachment between the two. Doug Aoyama, a fourth year Computer Science Engineering major and an SAA vo lunteer stated it best by declaring, " Bruinfest was a lot of fun! We got to see a lot of alumni and student interaction as well. " According to alumni, students, and volunteers, Bruinfest was a phenomenal success. Running a carnival booth, students participated in the annual Bruinfest carnival. The car- nival was one of many events that comprised the UCLA Homecoming cele- bration and pre- ceded the Homecoming game.

' : Being part of a large university intent on creating an atmosphere of freedom and tolerance, members of the UCLA community were not ones to shirk from expressing their views on controversial issues. From holding protest to initiating heated debates, Bruins were always ready to let their voices be heard. No matter what the topic, students and faculty inevitably felt strongly about it one way or the other. Issues that captured their interest and at times, propelled them into action, included both nationwide topics as well as topics specific to UCLA. The fear associated with Rohypnol, the " date rape drug " had some concerned for their own safety, while the lack of on-campus parking sparked the frustration of others. Such intense reactions to these topics, and many others, illustrated the strong spirit which embodied UCLA. 1L ifcr Kn Tarraza 68 Issues I! Divided over the leadlines heralded the change and it appeared as if no singlejreactioatait was the same. me Court ' s refusal last November to hear the American Civil Liberties Union ' s appeal of Proposition 209 caused an uproar on campus and throughout the state. This refusal had many Bruins up in arms because it automatically made Proposition 209 the law. Many questions were raised in the minds of students as to how this new law would affect the programs and admission policies of UCLA. As proponents and opponents fought for the headlines, students were inundated with information that was, at times overwhelming, and that often sparked emotional reactions due to the sensitivity of the issues at hand. Proposition 209 was put on the California ballot in November of 1996 and soon after was passed into law. From the very beginning there were sharp divisions of thought over the Proposition. Those who supported the Proposition did so because they believed that it would serve to ban discrimination and preferential treatment. In addition to addressing racially based issues, Proposition 209 also sought to eliminate preferential treatment on the basis of sex. Supporters felt that Proposition 209 would add new protections against sex discrimination, rather than legalizing it. Civil rights groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, (ACLU), and the National Organization of Women, (NOW), immediately mounted efforts to prohibit the Proposition ' s passage into law. It was their belief that the proposition sought to destroy fairness, equality and diversity. Many also believed that the proposition sought to constitutionalize gender discrimination. Though the magnitude of the effects of Proposition 209 on UCLA were still Story By: Meredith Magner unknown, one effect seemed clear, the diversity of applicants diminished. The decrease in the number of minorities applying for the Fall 1998 class upset many students. In Waving signs to demonstrate their stance, students protest in an anti-Proposition 209 rally.

Seemingly the home to only those who are thin, tanned, and toned. In the land of two seasons, fall and summer, Angelinos could rarely find reprive from the gym and take cover under baggy wool sweaters as their counterparts on the East Coast could. The creed for many Los Angeles natives were " results now, repercussions later, " and could be unequivocally applied to the attitudes of those who used diet drugs. As diet drugs such as Phentermine and Dexfenfluramine came on the market and passed the initial FDA approval, an an xious public depleted their pharmacists ' supplies. The excitement over finding a seemingly quick, effective, and safe way to lose weight caused many people to throw caution to the wind, and the traditional mode of weight loss, exercise and healthy eating, paled in comparison. However, when the two drugs were combined, a harmful product known as Fen- Phen emerged into the market. Studies were released showing a cluster of patients who had used Fen-Phen and had developed heart problems. Despite its known complications, Phentermine stayed on the market and could be used for short term treatment of obesity. Fen-Phen was withdrawn from the market in September, and soon after, Dexfenfluramine, or Redux, was taken off the market as well. Reactions to the availability of diet drugs varied among members of the campus. " If there ' s a market for it, I think that it should be made available to the public. They should be able to evaluate the pros and cons and then make their decision, " said Eric Purinsky, a second year Film and Television student. Other students felt that once the risks of a drug were known, it should be pulled off the market to Before they were banned, diet drugs such ensure the public ' s safety. " I think that these drugs should be pulled from the market as Redux and Fen-Phen could be purchased at any pharmacy Although they were because they have been found to cause problems and patients will go from doctor to proven to cause heart valve complications, some students felt these drugs should be doctor to get prescriptions in an attempt to lose weight, " remarked Natalie Marino, a made available to the public. second year English major student.

The drug, marketed as Rohypnol, was known on the street as " roofies " , " rope " , " the forget pill " , and " roach. " It was also named the " date rape drug " because it could cause blackouts and memory loss, leaving the victim unaware of any events that had taken place after the drug took effect. Rohypnol was a colorless and odorless white pill that dissolved quickly in drink and left the victim heavily sedated or unconscious for up to eight hours. Although there were not any reported cases of date rape involving Rohypnol on the UCLA campus, the possibility of " roofies " entering the dating scene was not forgotten. Jen Herman, a first year pre-Political Science major, said, " If I am at a party I make sure not to take an open drink from someone I don ' t know. You never know if they slipped something in it. " In an attempt to stop the abuse of Rohypnol, President Clinton signed legislation stiffening the penalties for use of the drug that led to date rape. Fourth year, Political Science major, Ross Kincaid, commented, " I think any man who uses drugs to take advantage of women should rot in jail and be made to feel as vulnerable as their victims did. " Hoffman-La Roche, Inc. were the manufacturers of the drug which was originally intended to combat severe sleeping disorders. After several reports of the use of " roofies " in connection with date rape, the makers improved the drug so that it contained a dye that was designed to turn any drink it was placed into blue and murky. Despite the precautions, " roofies " were still available on the streets, though not as readily. The best advice for women? Don ' t take your eyes off your drink!

Though the professor threatened not to score it, he calmly continued to scribble in his bluebook as the 300 other students reluctantly filed out of the enormous lecture hall. Just as the professor declared he would drop the student from the class, the student ran to the front of the room, placed his exam in the middle of the stack, and indignantly said to the professor, " You don ' t know my name, do you? " The large class size of many undergraduate classes made it easy for students to remain anonymous and provided many opportunities to cheat. Professors often had to go to great lengths to reduce the possibilities for cheating. Mark Dauberman, a UCLA Management instructor for over twenty years, explained his tactics, " As a general rule, I always make up at least two versions of each exam so that my students will not be sitting next to someone with the same exam as the one they are taking. " Some professors went as far as to require all belongings to be placed at the back of the room except for the 2 pencil and a scantron needed for the test. Caps were to be taken off or worn backwards, and in lecture halls that were large enough, students were only allowed to sit in every other seat. Even with such preventive measures, students still came up with innovative ways to cheat. They often made up " cheat sheets " and wrote formulas and other notes down on scraps of paper, on the back of their hands, or on erasers. Fierce competition in classes often led students to the alternative of cheating. But, for most students cheating was not viewed as a viable option. Mike Whang, a third year Biology major stated, " I hate it when the curve in the class is messed up by people who cheat, and I get a poor grade for actually studying. " For most, cheating was only a final and desperate resort. Nevertheless, it made things difficult for everyone else. Besides, as the old saying goes, " You ' re only cheating yourself.

In the lobbies though, various types of music was played over the speakers, no rap or hip-hop was to be heard. One major issue of debate that concerned on-campus housing was the ban on all hip- hop and rap music. Although the ban was sparked from some student complaints over the summer, other students were outraged at the ban because they perceived it as a violation of their rights. Dan Cullom, a first year Undeclared major who lived in Rieber Hall declared, " I was surprised when I heard that [the administration] was limiting what the residents were allowed to listen to in the lobbies. I don ' t think a whole category of music should be banned just because some songs have offensive lyrics. " Julia Tran, a Sproul Hall resident and second year Biology student, disagreed. She commented, " I don ' t listen to rap music myself, and I don ' t want to hear it while 1 am waiting in the lobby. If people want to hear rap, they can just play it in their own rooms. " Students angered by the ban declared that it violated their First Amendment rights. Tim Alger, a media law attorney with Gibson, Dunman and Crutcher, commented, " the ban appears to violate the First Amendment because it established a broad ban of an entire genre of music without sufficient justification. " Among students there was an overall feeling of surprise that UCLA, an institution of higher learning, would enact such a restriction. Whether the ban violated students ' constitutional rights or not, it did raise many controversies.

Whatever the reason, smoking was a common recreational and social activity at UCLA. If you observed Bruin Walk, Kerckhoff Patio, or the steps of Powell Library, you were likely to see students puffing on cigarettes inbetween classes, exchanging stories and telling tales. Many students started out as " social smokers, " bumming cigarettes from friends at parties or clubs. " Usually, I would have a cigarette when I drank, " stated Marcos Ornelas, a fourth year Psychology major. Spending time with people who smoked often caused students to take up the habit. After living with two smokers, Amy Kwok began to smoke as well. " It ' s so easy to say ' let ' s have a smoke ' with a friend... the temptation ' s around, " remarked Amy, a fourth year Comparative Literature major. Another common reason for smoking was stress: the daily grind of readings and homework caused many to need a medicinal Marlboro. The addiction to cigarettes was often more mental than physical. Ask Tommy Bui, a fourth year Sociology student, who had tried to quit several times due to health reasons. Admitting that many of his friends had attempted to quit as well, Tommy maintained, " It ' s more of a habit, a stress reliever, but it ' s not because you ' re addicted to the nicotine.

Amidst all the hustle and hustle, and pushing and shoving of the first lecture, you focused on that one person that blurred out everyone else. Would you see them again? Should you go up to them? These questions plagued the minds of UCLA students whether they were in the dorms, in a classroom, meeting friends of friends, or anywhere else on campus. For those who decided to give relationships a shot, the question of time management became a problem. Constantly thinking about each other and spending time together, school work was often put on the backburner or was altogether forgotten. First year, Engineering major Karyann Goldschmidt agreed, " Sometimes you just can ' t help it. They are always on your mind. " While it ' s true that many could balance dating and studies, it was safe to assume that dating was a potential interference from students ' studies. Let ' s not forget about those who already had that special someone as the fall quarter started. Those with long distance relationships had a tough time and many eventually ended their romance. Conversely, being with someone at the same school gave couples ample time together even if it was only between classes. Students found that they had to achieve a balance between their studies and their social lives. Some couples found that study dates and eating meals with their boyfriends girlfriends were easy ways to spend time together and focus on school. With the time needed for dating, some simply refrained. First year Engineering major, Nora Chan thought, ' There is so much going on right now that I don ' t think I can handle a relationship. It ' s not like I don ' t want to, but I just try not to think about the whole thing. " Story Byi Elizabeth Diaz fmm.

This office was one of the busiest ones in Murphy Hall. registration fees, housing, and textbooks, and you just might have found yourself wishing you went to SMC down the street. To combat this monetary difficulty, many students enlisted aid financial aid. Nguyen Phan, a fifth year Political Science student, was grateful for his supplementary income. " It helps a lot, " said Nguyen. " 1 probably wouldn ' t survive if I didn ' t have it. " While Nguyen considered himself lucky to receive so much aid, he acknowledged that a majority of it came from loans. " I will have to pay it back someday, " he remarked. However, some weren ' t as fortunate. " I was outright denied for financial aid, " stated Jeff Tsujimoto, a fifth year Communication Studies student. " I didn ' t get grants or money. I just got offered a loan at a really high interest rate. When I thought of financial aid, I thought of money you wouldn ' t have to pay back, or at least a loan I could afford. " According to Gwendolyn Neal, Associate Director of the Financial Aid Office, everyone who applied for financial aid received an offer of some sort, either grants, loans, or a combination of both, depending on their financial need. Students whose families could not pay for the full cost of education were eligible for grants as well as subsidized loans. All issues concerning financial aid were answered in Murphy Hall at the Financial Aid office. Also, handbooks were printed with all of the information needed concerning monetary aid. Unfortunately, most students didn ' t take the time to learn about financial aid until they were in danger of losing it. The biggest problem is that students don ' t use our resources. We have workshops all over campus on how to fill out applications, but students don ' t take advantage of our counselors.

However, if you asked any student who had to purchase " a permit this year, you would have heard many tales of woe and frustration. With parking lots constantly under construction and UCLA ' s growing student body, many Bruins were denied quarterly parking permits. This caused a high demand for daily permits which were known to sell-out as early as 7:30 AM. Permits were distributed on a point system,- the more points one had, the higher the chance was for obtaining a permit. Points were determined by such factors as year in school and commuter distance. Some students had accumulated many points, but were still denied permits. Appealing the decision was an option, but most appeals were denied as well. " I was willing to pay the five dollars a day [for a daily permit], but they were sold out in every parking lot... I started to pay for the parking lots in Westwood and take the bus from there, but sometimes, they ' re sold out too, " remarked Ramanan Thiagarajah, a fifth year Electrical Engineering student. Alternatives to driving, such as the bus, vanpooling, and carpooling, were provided by UCLA ' s Transportation Services. Joe Wen, a fifth year Economics student commented, " [Before], I didn ' t know you could ride the bus for fifty cents. I ' m tired of paying five bucks a day [for daily permits]. It takes me the same amount of time to ride the bus that it would take to drive. Vanpooling covered a wide area, including Orange County and the San Gabriel Valley. Commuters were charged based on distance and how frequently they used the service. Applying for a two or three person carpool permit was another way to guarantee parking. The permit would then be transferable to each student ' s car. Parked cars pack every inch of Parking Lot 8. The overwhelming demand for on- Mimi Pham, a fifth year Political Science major was happy she never had to consider campus parking caused cars to be stacked one behind the other. commuter options,- she was blessed with a parking permit. " Knowing I will get parking is reassuring-even though I ' m paying for it, " Mimi stated. Parking 85 Calming Students _Story By: Wendy: Tan ;ept echoed across the deserted courtyard as a lone student traversed campus late in the evening. The UCLA campus seemed an entirely different place under the glow of a few dim street lamps. It wasn ' t rare for students to question their safety when they were alone in such a situation. " I ' m usually on campus pretty late, and I don ' t like walking back to the apartments alone at night, especially when no one else is around, " commented Charity Wang, a third year Psychology major. Charity ' s sentiment was typical of many students ' fears for their personal safety. The campus had a security program that included officers and patrols that tried to combat and ease students ' fears. " Campus is actually pretty safe compared to the surrounding area, " observed Jason Kim, a third year Aerospace Engineering major. " We have our own police department which patrols a limited area, so their response time is really quick. Also, since the population is mostly students, there is a pretty low crime rate. " Jason was one of the hundred or so students employed as Community Service Officers (CSOs) who served as the " eyes and ears " of the University Police Department. CSOs were responsible for patrolling the residence halls, libraries, and other buildings on campus. They were primarily known for their Campus Escort and the Evening Van Services. Any student who didn ' t want to walk alone at night could have a CSO escort them to their destination, either on campus or in the nearby area. The Evening Van Service was another alternative for those who didn ' t Driving on campus, one CSO officer want to walk alone. The vans made stops on campus, by the dorms, and in the patrols the campus. Community service officers were hired to ensure campus apartment area. They were safe, convenient, and saved students the hassle of driving safety and help students feel safe at UCLA. and finding parking. Thanks to the CSOs and the UCPD, campus was a relatively safe place to be. Students found that as long as they took a few precautions, there was not much to fear. 86 Issues A CSO waits for his passengers to board the vehicle.

J ampu Safety 87 Blame it on the Story By: Alex Yu M e Muckerneide Ever jvonder why Jt was blistering hot one week and raining the next? Well, blame it on El Nino. Whenever the weather was talked about, the topic of El Nino usually came up. Anything and everything seemed to happen because of it, but what exactly was El Nino? In layman ' s terms, El Nino was a big storm. To the general public it may have seemed a new phenomenon, but to some, it was known and talked about for centuries. El Nino was first discovered centuries ago in Peru, where it would warm the temperature of the water. This event would usually occur around Christmastime and therefore was given the name " El Nino, " meaning " the child. " El Nino was a result of a buildup in pressure in the middle of the Pacific. In Southern California this caused the temperature to increase, followed by a warming trench which was accompanied by a major reduction in biological productivity. El Nino also caused unusually voluminous rainfalls in California and brought a warmer winter than usual. For students this was an event that was not easily forgotten. The rain was a major problem which many Bruins had to contend with. El Nino caused the winter to be full of heavy rain and numerous storms. First-year pre- Biology major, Sherry Kao, declared, " El Nino stinks! All the increase in rain makes walking around this campus a total pain. ..it made students want to go to class even less! " Other students complained about the storm ' s lack of predictability. Christine Atkinson, a first-year Undeclared Trudging through the rain, students made student quipped, " Just when you think that the rain has stopped and that you don ' t need their way to class despite the weather. The rumors of " El Nino " were justified your umbrella, it starts pouring, and then you ' re drenched! " with the heavy rainfall that occured during the winter. While the storm might have been a major inconvenience for some students, it did give people something to blame the uncertain weather on. 88 Issues Trying to balance a bike and an umbrella, one student travels the empty campus. The heavy rain deterred many students from attending class and coming on to campus.

Oftentimes, what brings people together is the consequence of a tragedy. On August 30, 1997, the world lost Diana, Princess of Wales when a terrible car accident in Paris, France took her young and much scrutinized life. Her beau, Dodi Fayed, and the driver of the Mercedes, Henri Paul, were among the fatalities during that fateful night in the now infamous tunnel by the Seines River. In the days following the accident,- television, mewspapers, magazines, and even the tabloids extensively covered her life as images of " the People ' s Princess " were plastered all over the media. Ironically, this was the same media which was blamed by many for her untimely death. Everyone wanted answers to what had happened that August night and the only possible source was Trevor Reese Jones, who laid comatose in a hospital bed. During the week that followed Diana ' s death, millions demonstrated their sympathy by placing flowers all around the gates of Buckingham Palace,- and for those not in England, other locations around the world were also filled with flowers in Diana ' s memory. Not to anyone ' s surprise, the funeral for the Princess of Wales generated as many ratings as it did sadness. What was meant to be a somber event turned out to be a media " frenzy. " The silence of the funeral procession was broken only by sobs from the crowd. Prince Charles was present with his distraught sons and Elton John sang a moving tribute of " Candle in the Wind: 1997 " during the service. These poignant images and many more became forever associated with the emotional end of a remarkable woman ' s life. Diana may have left the mortal world but her image was still publicized, advertised, and sold. Postage stamps, porcelain dolls, tribute albums, memoirs, even clothing and jewelry bearing her likeness and name were seen in every magazine and newspaper. Perhaps the only beneficial motive behind her being posthumously marketed was that proceeds were often donated to her favorite charity. The inundation of Princess Diana memorabilia served only to devalue her life by exploiting her death. Five days after the car accident in Paris, yet another great humanitarian passed on. At the age of 87, Mother Theresa died in her home country of India. Her funeral may not have drawn as much of an audience as Diana ' s, but her life was revered with as much importance as the Princess ' . On the surface these two women seemed very different, yet both had the ability to move the world. One lesson was learned from both Mother Theresa ' s and Lady Diana ' s deaths: that their lives should be celebrated, but their deaths were not events to be taken advantage of. The spirits of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Mother Theresa continued to live on in those whose lives they touched. so Issues J r AP Wide World Photos Lady Diana Mother Theresa 91 Trial in I Story By Sue Vichayanuparp AP Wide World Photos American-public Jjegan tajrelyimore and more heavily on the media for all of their news information, it was no surprise that the most controversial court cases were covered and reported on by various television stations across the nation. Whether it was the trial of Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City Federal Building bomber, or the sexual assault charges filed against sportscaster Marv Albert, all of the major news stations had daily updates and live broadcasts from the trial locations. With the large number of hours given to court cases by the media in recent years, the news media ' s role in presenting an informative rather than sensationalized story was often debatable. Many Bruins felt that in certain instances, the media manipulated the stories to make them more dramatic in order to attract a larger viewing audience. Third year Communication Studies major Susan Lee believed this to be true in the trial of Louise Woodward, the British nanny accused of strangling a baby boy. " I feel that this was a highly sensitive and emotional case that should have been kept private between the two parties involved. It was obvious that both sides were in pain and I ' m not sure that the public had a right to intrude in their lives by broadcasting parts of the trial on air, " expressed Lee. Other students believed that the media was in no way wrong for covering the stories because it was their job to do so. " The media is not at fault for broadcasting these stories because they are giving people what they want. However, because the media has control over these things, they should definitely be responsible for keeping the public well-informed without creating a frenzy over a particular case, " stated third year Anthropology major Jeremy Afuso. With the existence of real life court shows such as " Court TV " and ' The People ' s Court, " it was not likely that the media would reduce their coverage of court cases. As long as there was a viewing audience interested in such cases, the media would continue to broadcast such stories.

It is a pity he was not around to witness the success of Proposition 215. The highly controversial Prop. 215, otherwise known as the " Medical Marijuana Initiative, " was passed on November 5 with a majority 56% of the vote. The ballot initiative permitted seriously and terminally ill patients to use marijuana in their medical treatment, but only with their doctor ' s recommendation. Although there were not enough studies to prove its medicinal value through the Food and Drug Administration, marijuana was shown to aid some people suffering from cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, and other diseases for which there was no relief from other legally available medicines. Previous bills to reclassify marijuana in California were twice vetoed by Governor Pete Wilson before being sent to voters as Prop. 215. As of the November vote, California became the first state to take a stand supporting the medical use of marijuana through ballot initiative. Obtaining marijuana still proved to be difficult because the acts of buying and selling the drug remained illegal. The new law only protected patients who possessed marijuana with a doctor ' s recommendation from criminal penalties for possession. However, patients were allowed to grow their own plants if they could verify personal, medicinal use. With the success of Prop. 215, marijuana became another on the list of powerful drugs legalized for medical purposes, joining medicines such as morphine, codeine, and valium. " I think it ' s great that marijuana finally became legalized as medicine because there are many people who will benefit from it, " commented Ho Jin Yu, a fourth year Biology major. With proper enforcement of the law, Prop. 215 could be beneficial to the future of medicine in society. 94 Issues The Rating r Story By: Kelly Krueger Lynn Nishimura ' The following show is rated NC17 and is intended for adult viewers only. " A new rating system was implemented for television shows in hopes of protecting children from inappropriate programming. The rating was shown in the upper corner of the television screen at the very beginning of each program. Mixed reactions about the new system and its effects followed the introduction of the rating system. Some people felt that the ratings would help parents to monitor the content of what their children were watching. By being warned at the start of a show that it contained adult material, parents could change the channel before it was too late. " I think that the TV rating system is a good idea because it allows parents to regulate their children ' s exposure to inappropriate television programming, " remarked Jeanne Sakamoto, a second year Communication Studies major. On the other hand, some believed that parents are not with their children for the majority of the time that they watch TV, and that the system would cause kids to watch shows with adult ratings. Programs that most children would not have found interesting might suddenly become irresistible because they would feel it was " forbidden " to them. While the intent of the rating system was to help parents regulate the programs that their children watched, the system only proved successful if families watched television together. However, in American society, the majority of time that children spent watching TV was without parental supervision. Therefore, the efficacy of Displaying the rating in the upper corner, the TV rating system remained questionable. Overall, although there was a debate a cartoon lets parents know that it is suitable for children The TV rating system concerning whether or not the rating system made a difference, the option was there was a new feature designed to protect children from adult topics on television. for parents who wanted to take advantage of it. 96 Issues -- ----- TVJteting System 97 Transfer Students i I With its large and vastly spaced campus and an enrollment in the ; tens of thousands, UCLA could be considered a place where j one would find it difficult to personalize his her experience. ; However, it was exactly because of its size that there was an abundance of opportunities readily available to students at UCLA. Regardless of what direction their years here took them, many Bruins were able to find their niche within the UCLA community. Some students] chose to cultivate their talents, whether it be in the field of academics, music, | or by joining organizations such as the news publication or the school marching band. Others were content to utilize the broad range of programs and facilities, including the Student Research Program (SRP) and the Lc Angeles Tennis Center (LATC), which were offered on campus. Ultimately, it was up to the individual him herself to shape his her own experiences. For anyone who desired to be more than just another face the crowd, this was the time and place to do so. n H on i a ' w . -- i CWQ " r Scenes of Biuin WAL B Y O L I V I A M A N Z A N JCLA students made their way through Bruin Walk, many were constantly pursued Dnfronted by fellow students advertising their organizations, petitions, or surveys. However, in the overwhelmingly busy life of a college student, Bruins often did not have a minute of spare time. A freshman majoring in Biology, Kelly Thomasson explained, " Normally I don ' t mind people coming up to me, but it seems whenever I don ' t have time, they try to stop me. " Nevertheless, the individuals who lined Bruin Walk with poster signs, petitions, and surveys often had something worthy to say. Whether it was a religious affiliation, a political organization, or a representative from the Los Angeles Times, more often than not, these individuals were there for the UCLA community ' s advantage. Being one of the most frequently walked area, organizations set up fliers and tables on Bruin Walk, aware that a vast majority of the UCLA population would pass by either on their way to class or to the dorms. In a sense, Bruin Walk could be considered an " Information Highway. " By passing through it, students received information regarding on-going events, campus clubs, job opportunities, and even coupons for free items. How else could one become involved with UCLA and the community if this information was not so easily accessible? There were in fact some students who weren ' t bothered by the ambiance of Bruin Walk. Nikki Weiner, a freshman Psychology major, expressed, " I like the atmosphere of Bruin Walk. It gives us the opportunity to see the diversity of clubs on campus. " Whether one wanted to be exposed to the number of students and organizations along Bruin Walk or if one would rather not be distracted, it was up to the individual. A HI simple " No thanks " or the avoidance of eye contact usually worked to keep solicitors away. As sophomore Shaun Hussain, a Biology Major, stated, " They usually don ' t bother me, plus I usually take a different route " I like the atmosphere of Bruin Walk.

It is a collection of the best iters of UCLA who have come together to inform the UCLA campus of the current Tssues. Just ask Edina Lekovic, an English major and Daily Bruin alumni of three years. In 1995, Edina decided to join the Daily Bruin because she saw it as an opportunity to grow. Little did she know how right she was. Three years of hectic schedules and manic deadlines later, she had become the editor-in-chief of one of the most prolific newspapers in the nation. For the Daily Bruin staff, the day would begin quietly and calmly, almost serene. But as the day continued, the Daily Bruin office would turn into a mad house. The horrific deadlines would put to rest any thoughts of a smooth night. Working until midnight, the staff had to write and rewrite their copy while the editors edited countless stories over and over so that all the errors would be corrected. The following day would start another cycle, a cycle that never seemed to end. Yet all this was worthwhile. As Edina explained, ' The constant pressure and heartaches that came with the job were balanced out by the reward and accomplishment felt when everything was done. " As hard as it was, the Daily Bruin was not just a place of hectic work. Here, members were able to forge a bond with one another where they became close friends. Members shared in the joy of their fellow writers and also felt their disappointments as well.

This place, otherwise known as Newsmagazine headquarters, housed the seven independent publications on campus, namely: Al Talib, Fern, Ha ' am, La Gente, Nommo, Pacific Ties, and Ten Percent. Each serviced a specific audience within the greater Los Angeles area and also throughout the country. Providing a voice for those ignored by mainstream media, the newsmagazines revealed cultural and political issues often missed by the Daily Bruin or the Los Angeles Times. The seven newsmagazines covered everything from Asian American film festivals to kosher food, from Chicano theater to ebonies,- from feminist t-shirts to queer comic heroes. Listed in alphabetical order, the newsmagazines are: A! Talib, representing the Muslim faith,- Fern, speaking for women everywhere,- Ha ' am, conveying the Jewish beliefs,- La Gente, portraying the Chicana and Latina culture,- Nommo, using the African American voice,- Pacific Ties, targeting the Asian American audience,- and Ten Percent, expressing the thoughts of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender population. Sandra Cano, a fourth year American Literature and Chicana Studies student, spent many long but enjoyable hours as La Gente ' s Editor-in-Chief. " I get a personal thrill out of it, " stated Cano. " You ' re doing something for your community but you ' re doing something you like: you ' re creating. With [the newsmagazine], you have this huge voice. " Published in both Spanish and English, La Gente educated the UCLA Chicanosas and Latinosas, as well as inmates from several prisons in California. Editors from each newsmagazine were required to attend a summer training program, and Cano believed a special bond ! formed between her and the other newsmagazine editors. " It helped me understand the goals of the other editors... we all have a specific interest. We all have this focus on what we want to do for our communities. " " I get a personal thrill out of it.

USAC ' s commitment to the betterment of student life was what made UCLA what it was for many a student. It was difficult for many to imagine student life at UCLA without the activism and flare that USAC incorporated into all that it did. That enthusiasm was evident in all the events that USAC hosted, and truly helped to enable USAC to become a more prevalent force on campus. First introduced to the student body last spring during elections, then President-elect Kandea Mosley envisioned a campus wide event that would serve to introduce the freshmen to many of the campus based clubs while at the same time creating a fun environment so as to ensure attendance by all classes. The success of " Welcome Week " surpassed even its biggest proponents ' expectations with Westwood Plaza filled daily by people partaking in the festivities. " Welcome Week was a lot of fun because not only did I get to meet other students but I got to see who was in charge at UCLA, " remarked first year, Undeclared student Molly Minus. This year, USAC ' s pledge to increase student awareness did not restrict itself to campus-based issues. Many Bruins felt that this year ' s USAC succeeded in integrating awareness of pressing societal issues, namely AIDS and Date Rape Awareness. Samantha Gilardi, Commissioner of Student Welfare, organized an AIDS Awareness forum and, though she was " disappointed " by the low turnout, students in attendance felt that the low numbers did not reflect the quality of the symposium. Activities such as these embodied the core of USAC, and served to integrate the student body, faculty, administration, and outside world. From welcoming the freshman to UCLA at their Convocation Ceremony, to bidding the seniors farewell at their graduation, it was USAC who occupied our first impression and last memories of UCLA and all that it embodied. only did I get to meet other students but I got to see who was in charge at UCLA.

Then, there were some who visited Powell library to catch up on the past week ' s homework and reading assignments. Yet, on September 25, these nights took on a whole new meaning for many students. With the season premiere of NBC ' s 1 hospital show, ER, Thursday nights at 10 PM was the time to have a good supply of popcorn nearby and nestle on the couch with friends. The season opener of ER lured millions of dedicated fans and curious newcomers to watch the popular drama taped live. The last live television performance of recent years was Fox ' s comedy, Roc, which was a half hour long show. However, ER, with its highly technical sets and scripts teeming with medical jargon, broadcasting live was no easy task. With few undetectable flaws and flubs, ER Live was pulled off, leaving fans satisfied with the results. This historical episode and all its hype generated many ER parties on and around campus. " For the season premiere, my roommates and 1 had about 1 5 people over to watch ER live. At first, it was very weird and it seemed like a whole different show but eventually you got used to it, " said third year English Neuroscience student Ronnie Jordan. With many pre-med students around campus, it wasn ' t surprising that many students dedicated their Thursday nights to ER. Although the show was stylized to typical Hollywood standards, watchers did not care whether or not the drama was an accurate portrayal of a hospital trauma room. " 1 hardly ever miss an episode of ER because watching it is such an intense experience. Plus, it doesn ' t hurt to look at Dr. Ross and Dr. Carter every week, " explained Vivian Koo, a third year Psychology major. Even for college students, an exciting time was as simple as watching a television show. With the success and popularity of ER, one could be sure to find young adults rushing to the " emergency room " every Thursday night. and I had about 15 people over to watch ER live. At first, it was very weird and it seemed like a whole new show but eventually you got used to it. " -Ronnie Jordan A student focuses his attention on this week ' s episode of ER.

As she | on a UCLA sweatshirt; Dana Danesi realized how proud she was to be a Bruin. third and fourth year students did not start out their college career at UCLA, but rather transferred here from other schools. There were many reasons for students to transfer. Dana, a fourth year English major, became a Bruin in the fall of 1996. She stated, " 1 didn ' t get into my first choice school and I had a great job teaching ballet that I didn ' t want to give up, so I chose to go to a junior college for two years. " This was a popular choice for students who after graduating from high school, needed to save money, wanted to stay close to home, or just did not know where they wanted to go to college. Other transfer students came to the University of California, Los Angeles looking for something their other schools did not offer. " I started out at UC Davis, but I hated it. The only thing to do their was to get wasted in our rooms, or go cow-tipping, " remarked one transfer student who wished to remain anonymous. " There is so much to do in LA. From the theater to the parties, there is something for everyone, " she stated. Yet, other students transferred to UCLA in their junior year because they did not get accepted as a freshman. Many students dreamt of attending UCLA in high school, but for various reasons, they were turned away. In pursuit of that dream, several opted to go to a different college for their first two years where they studied hard, and made outstanding grades. " I ' m glad I waited to come to UCLA. When I graduated from high school I was not serious about studying. I think that if I came to UCLA as a freshman, I would have flunked out. Going to a junior college prepar ed me and helped me decide where I wanted to go with my life, " said transfer student and Economics major, Dan Keenan. Regardless of the reason why, many students decided to leave other schools and switched to UCLA. As soon as they learned the eight-clap though, most transfer students realized how proud they were to be Bruins. graduated from high school I was not serious about studying.

This was , i , i i the most convenient way for students to earn an extra buck. For convenience, ASUCLA posted job listings in Kerckhoff Hall for students to search for their future employment. These listings were mainly for on-campus jobs which paid rather handsomely compared to other off-campus opportunities. With the many student stores and eateries all over campus, there was always a demand for student employees. The many benefits of working on campus was the major draw for students. Not only was the location great, but on campus jobs were very flexible in their scheduling. " I really like working on campus because your boss knows you ' re a student and can be really accommodating when your class load is hard. I also love working with other students and people my age because we can all relate to each other, " stated Tricia Hoff, a fourth year Communication Studies Sociology major. In addition to all this, working for ASUCLA made students eligible for 20% employee discounts at the student stores. When Christmas time came around, this meant great savings on expensive UCLA paraphernalia. With the UCLA medical center and other labs right on campus, jobs in these locations were popular for many students. The pre-meds and other south campus students used these jobs as stepping stones to their careers. A Student Store cashier rings up her customer ' s purchases. Many employees found that having an on-campus job was more convenient than working off- " Working at the ER with other nurses is the perfect experience for me. I ' m hoping campus to become a nurse one day so seeing what the ' job entails makes me more motivated to becoming one, " said Justine Manzano, a I second year Physiological Sciences major. There was a great variety of on-campus jobs to choose from. Students could work in _ retail, advertising, medicine, and media just to name a few. So when wallets were low on cash, students found jobs right on campus to be the best and most rewarding way to add to their savings.

By living in Westwood, students had the convenience of having school and Westwood Village in walking distance. Most of the apartments housed only UCLA students making it easy to socialize with the tenants. For other students, living in Westwood meant paying high rent and sharing small rooms with roommates. Because of this, some students chose to live farther away from school. Places such as south of Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica, and Palms became other options for these students.

At the the 20th century, something called the internet was developed, altering the way ., communication, and education were utilized. In the 1990s, not being internet savvy was a disadvantage, especially for students at universities. For many students, surfing the web became as second nature as taking notes in class. In fact, more and more professors began making their own web pages for the course they were teaching. Not only was the syllabus posted on the page, but outlines of lectures and supplemental information not covered in class were displayed as well. " Being in computer science classes, most of my professors are very technologically oriented and have their own web sites for the class. Sometimes I can get my homework assignments and other course material directly off the internet! " declared fourth year Coputer Science and Engineering major Greg Wilcox. The internet was also used for research purposes to aid students with projects and term papers. A search could be done on any topic imaginable, bringing up tens of thousands of web pages,- some of which were potential treasure chests of information. In addition, no one could deny the entertainment value of the world wide web. From news, to gossip, to chatting to people across the country, some students would spend hours on the internet just seeing what it had to offer. ' The web has such a variety of interesting topics that everyone is sure to find something that catches their eye, " shared Shannon McKinnon, a fourth year English major. With such widespread use of the internet, it is likely that the format will become advanced and more accessible in years to come. The emergence of the world wide web has been an international phenomenon that has sparked interest in everyone, young and old. orientated and have their own web sites for the class.

What do all these classes have in common? They are all requirements for the new minors at UCLA. UCLA added an English minor along with others such as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies in the Fall of 1997. When the school first announced these additions to the list of minors, students ' reactions were mixed. One senior, who wished to remain anonymous, complained bitterly, " I had to work really hard so that I could double major in Political Science and English. I liked both and couldn ' t decide which to concentrate on. If the chance had arisen for me to take just nine extra English classes and graduate with a minor in it, my college years would have been much easier. " The Class of 2001 were the ones who initially benefited most. Many of them who previously had not taken the Humanities requirements, were able to plan carefully and satisfy many of the requirements for the English minor while simultaneously taking general education classes. By having a minor, students were able to expand their areas of concentration. Instead of just studying one subject intensely, minors allowed for more diversity. The requirements to enter the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Studies minor were the completion of LGBT M14 and at least a 2.0 GPA. It did not take a significant amount of extra classes for students to graduate with a minor. Careful planning and interest in broadening one ' s studies was all it took. UCLA did its part in offering the new minors, and it was up to the students to take advantage of them. English. I liked both and couldn ' t decide which to concentrate on.

As the audience looked at the vibrant band below, first year Undeclared student and clarinet player Richard Abdelkerim gazed back at the stands in awe. Though he entered the UCLA Marching Band with high expectations, Abdelkerim was still surprised at the energy, participation, and rigor exhibited by the Bruin crowd. ' The games were something really big that people wanted tickets for. I realized I was in a very important position... band was a force to be reckoned with, " stated Richard. Beneath their enthusiasm and smiles, the UCLA Marching Band was a group of dedicated and hardworking individuals. During the week, they had to concentrate on their music, marching, and new directions from Director Gordon Henderson. Additionally, band members had to manage their time between schoolwork, practices, work, and other extracurricular activities. Classes also had to be arranged around band. With practices every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 3-5 p.m., they had a more narrow course selection. But the only time band conflicted with classes was when they had to leave for games on a Friday and were gone until Sunday. In such instances, classwork had to be made up for missing Friday ' s lecture or discussion. The positive aspects of performing in the band far outweighed the drawbacks. With outings and barbecues came the closeness of the group, helping to create a familial atmosphere. The band members had the opportunity to hone their musical skills in front of a supportive audience as well as have great seats to football games. What more could anyone ask for?

The diversity of recreation facilities n campus accommodated all types of work-outs. Most popular was the John Wooden Center, which had various exercise machines, racquetball courts, basketball courts, weight rooms, dance rooms, and even a " rock wall " on which to practice climbing. Other commonly used facilities included Drake Stadium, Sunset Recreation Center, and the Los Angeles Tennis Center. Students had to devote quite a bit of time and effort to work out consistently. Many discovered all too soon that it wasn ' t always easy to keep up with their commitments. " I used to start the day early and go to the gym every day before class, but now I can ' t seem to get up that early anymore, " said Wesley Woo, a third year Biochemistry major. Some even went as far as carrying gym clothes with them around campus, but ended up returning home at the end of the day without ever finding the time to actually put those clothes to use. Students ' busy schedules were usually responsible for keeping them away from the gym. Many had to balance their time between working, studying, and attending class, which made it difficult to squeeze in time for working-out. " I usually end up running early in the morning, or pretty late at night, because it ' s the only time I have, " commented fifth year student Robert Urtega.

Later in the year, Chemistry Professor Paul Boyer received the Nobel Peace Prize for his work with ATP production. Accounts like these made clear the importance of the research done in large institutions such as UCLA. Since 1985, UCLA ' s Student Research Program (SRP) has facilitated undergraduate studies in research projects with UCLA ' s top notch professors. According to SRP coordinator Gloria Lyles, SRP students had the opportunity to do research in almost any field, although there were more in the Science majors. " They could " get hands on experience in their majors, " stated Lyles. Second year Physiological Science major Joseph Chang was involved in a research project with Dr. Koba Shigara, a practicing cardiologist at the UCLA Medical Center. Joseph was the newest member of a team of 3-4 undergraduates. His SRP involved the development of new heart transplant techniques. He described his work as " mostly clerical, " but feels he still got some knowledge out of the experience in reading the research papers, and searching for other research that was helpful to Dr. Shigara. According to Joseph, " The research is so highly technical, but just being there gives me a feel for what a doctor ' s life is like and it encourages me. " SRP officials said that research projects which involved direct contact with professors were an excellent way to drastically increase chances of admission into post- undergraduate study. According to Lyles, " All students going to graduate school need to have some research... we recommend 2-3 quarters worth. " In addition to transcript notation facilitated by the SRP office (subject to verification that all agreed upon research hours were completed), students asked professors for letters of recommendation, and those who stayed on for multiple quarters even got their name as recognition on a research project. recommendation even though the professor doesn ' t know my name yet.

Lynn Ntshimura -StudentBesearch Program 129 Second Year Students Tiny rooms, communal bathrooms, crowded cafeterias, late-night chats with friends, and the antics of living on a floor with one hundred other people all contributed to the atmosphere of life in the residential halls. Such an experience could never be matched, and for most, the time spent living in the dorms was a brief one or two years. Life in the dorms instantly gave incoming freshmen a home away from home complete with a large extended family. Special memories were made after living with other students on a floor all year, especially with someone who shared a room slightly larger than a closet with you. These people soon became the ones who saw you in the middle of the night when you were up late studying for a final, and the ones you talked to, went places with, and helped you procrastinate when you didn ' t want to study. Other times were spent eating in the cafeteria, hanging out with the RA ' s and PA ' s, and hitching rides with those few people lucky enough to have a car in the dorms. While for most students one year in the dorms was enough, that year was different from any other they would ever have. Never again would students live in a building with eight hundred people their same age, and many of them would probably not want to. From Move-In Day to Move-Out Day, residential life provided students with an spportunity for making lasting friendships, special memories, and helped to make the transition from home to UCLA easier. r T U r j 3v JM A .j Vj ahfornia resident in his hometown of rough his T-Shirt lifornians found it home weekly. 134 Residential Life Lynn Nishimura A San Francisco native decorates her dorm room with reminders of home. Many students not from Southern California remarked that attending a college far away from home gave them a sense of independence. The student population of UCLA was made up of two groups, those from Southern California and those from Northern California or other states. A popular debate consisted of why it was better to be from one area over another. Issues such as weather, homesickness, getting away from parents, and slang terms such as " hella, " were all debated. But, at the very heart of the matter was the issue of money. Many students were shocked at the price of having clean laundry and a decent meal. Added up, the cost of doing two loads of laundry per week was $82.50 for one year while a single grocery bill could be as expensive as $75. The high cost of living is what led many students who were originally from Southern California to go home on the weekends. Rob Isaacs, a fourth year Business-Economics major, remarked, " I go home at least once a month to do all my laundry because my fraternity does not have a washing machine or dryer. It ' s easier to just let my dirty clothes pile up. Besides, when I go home I get really good food from my grandmother! " Unfortunately, Bruins from Northern California and other states did not have the option of returning home as frequently, due to the time and cost. Stacey Traenkner, an Undeclared second year student, stated, " I am from the East Bay San Francisco area. I only go home for Thanksgiving, Christmas break, and Spring Break. I am fortunate to be able to go home on a few random weekends, but I wish I could go home more often. " Senior Dana Danessi, an English major, commented, " You have to really plan ahead before you move down to L.A. because it ' s not like you can run home to stock up your wardrobe when the weather turns cold. " However, students who resided far away and complained about not being able to go home, were reminded why they chose to attend UCLA. For many, the main reason was to get away from home! Story By: Jodi Ezrin Worth vs. South 135 136 Residential Life Construction workers break ground for the building of DeNeve Plaza. Construction on the $72 million complex began early Fall quarter. In an effort to continue the high pace of construction, the On-Campus Housing Office broke ground for the DeNeve Plaza Complex last October, forcing on-campus residents to readjust their lifestyles. The $72 million housing project, designed to strengthen the bridge between students and their academic environment, entailed the erection of six residential buildings that provided 1,300 beds, a large dining facility, and a lecture auditorium. In describing the goal of the project, Marc Fisher, director of design for Campus Programs commented, ' This is an aggressive policy to move away from a commuter campus . The objective of urban design was to decrease the drive and make a campus community. " To accommodate and enhance students ' experience by integrating student and faculty populations, the project also included 12 faculty apartments, administration offices, meeting rooms, and a television studio. Additionally, a main teaching facility served as a base center for the six residence halls. Meanwhile, the housing department continued steady progress on two other major projects: the upgrading of two dining facilities and the completion of the International Center. Because of the renovation of the dining halls, residents of Hedrick Hall, Dykstra Hall, and Hitch Suites had to eat their meals in other dining facilities throughout most of the year. The rebuilding created detours and blocked paths to and from campus. Similarly, the construction of the International Students Center, which was completed earlier this year, added yet another inconvenience in the form of early morning noise by the dorms. Although many students were happy about the improvements made, some were frustrated and enraged by the great number of inconveniences they had to endure. Emy Chai, a second year Undeclared student, expressed her discontent by remarking, " Though the construction is ultimately good for the students, it ' s sometimes difficult to deal with all the noise, dust, and traffic.

Each residential suite or high rise dorm carried out their individual themes through the use of banners, posters, and various other decorations. Delta ' s Tropicana, Courtside ' s Excalibur, Canyon ' s Palace, was this some twisted dream? No, it was Sunset in Las Vegas, the Welcome Week theme of the Sunset Village residence halls. During Welcome Week on the hill, each building created their own theme and based their decorations and activities around this theme. The Sunset Village buildings decorated their areas to recreate the feeling of popular attractions in Las Vegas. Each individual house ' s door decorations revolved around the building ' s theme. Hedrick Hall and Sprout Hall had similar themes, both involving Hollywood. To fit this theme, Hedrick ' s of Hollywood and Sproul Hollywood displayed large and numerous posters of movies and actors and actresses in their lobbies. Hedrick Social Chair Stanley Lau, a second year Computer Science and Engineering major, helped in the brainstorming of the idea and in the planning of events such as the Coffee House event, a night of various stage acts. When asked about the connotation of Hedrick ' s of Hollywood, Lau commented, " No one really mentioned it. ..I guess that ' s kind of a good thing. " Richer Hall ' s theme and sub-themes worked well together as a whole. Rieber Hall decorated their lobby with paper plates designed as clocks to help depict their theme of Time Warp. Each floor then took a respective era in history. True Dang, a first year Biology major who lived on the seventh floor with the sub-theme of the 80s, reflected, " I thought Rieber ' s themes and subthemes helped to -unify each floor under a theme that then helped us to be unified as a whole in Rieber Hall. " The dorm themes were there to help make life in the residence halls a little more exciting. Not only were they an excuse to decorate, but they served one main purpose: to bring everyone together to make new friends and just have fun.

The dorm cafeterias generally offered a variety of cereals, fruits, and juices for breakfast. Everyone has heard at least two or three horror stories of college dorm food. After hearing those infamously tall tales, one cringes at just the thought of stepping into one of those frightening dining halls. However, to a majority of first and second year students, dorm food was practically the only source of cuisine that was readily available. The first decision for the typical student was where to eat their meals for the day. Ordinarily, students chose to dine at their own residence halls. However, students in Dykstra, Hedrick, and the residential suites encountered a few problems due to construction, and had no dining halls. The majority diverted to the somewhat nearby Sunset Commons and Rieber dining hall. " Sunset or Rieber? " became the popular expression when choosing where to eat. A majority of the students felt that the aura of the dining halls was even more important than the food itself. Angela Cho, a first year Biology major felt that " the atmosphere is the key to finding where you want to eat. " After deciding where to eat, the difficult decision of what to eat presented itself. Questions such as, " Should I have a hamburger or the specials for today? Do I want a salad? How about some dessert? Milk or soda? " would ring in everyone ' s minds. At this point, choices of food preference would collide between students. Although the variety in the food offered was reasonable, all of the students wished for just a bit more of a selection. Maureen Moore, a first year Pre-Communications major living in Dykstra, wanted " more of a variety of fruits and vegetables at the salad bars. " Was residence hall dining all the students could look to for sustenance? There were several other alternatives for the hunger-ridden student. Next to Sunset was the very popular Puzzles which served a variety of different fast- food take-out choices and accepted the meal cards, much to everyone ' s pleasure. In addition, the newly opened ISC Cafe, which had the Puzzles flare, presented a great variety of international foods. The overall consensus on UCLA dining was overwhelmingly positive, according to the majority of the residents on campus. Whichever option students chose to get their meals, one had to admit that the food in the dining halls was rather good. As much food as you want, who could beat that?

One of the laundry room rules was to use the sign-in sheet in order to reserve a period of time to doing laundry. Each day, as students looked in their closet, searching for something decent to wear for the following day, they often realized that most of their wardrobe lay stashed in their laundry basket. It being only 8:00 p.m., many figured they had more than enough time to wash at least one load of laundry. After lugging their dirty clothes down the hall to the laundry room, many students living in the dorms were disappointed not only to find that the washer was already in use, but that the recently posted " Sign-up Sheet " was booked until midnight. Martha Rodriguez, a first year Chicana Studies major, expressed her frustration by stating, " It ' s such a pain to have to wait your turn for the washer. But what ' s even worse is when people don ' t even bother to sign up and they take your turn. " However, there were some students living in the residential halls that did not consider it a problem if one simply forgot to take his laundry out as soon as it was done. Lawrance Liou, a sophomore Chemical Engineering major commented, " I don ' t get bothered by people leaving their laundry because sometimes I just forget and I do it too. " Unfortunately, the overload of students waiting to share one washer was only one of the problems associated with doing laundry in the dorms. " It ' s when people leave their laundry sitting in the wash for half an hour when I get fed up, " explained Sarah Boudreau, a first year majoring in Economics. Although it may seem inconsequential to some to simply place another person ' s laundry out on top of the dryer, others considered it rude. Freshman Physiological Science major Veronica Garcia was one of the many students who preferred not to have anyone touch her laundry. She stated, " I left my clothes in the washer for barely two minutes after it was done and they were sitting on top of the washer. It made me mad-especially when they put your personal clothes on top for the whole world to see. " Luckily for some students, home was close enough that they did not have to wait their turn or put up with the impatience of others. Lisa Cheung, a freshman Biology major, declared, " Because I go home every weekend, I don ' t have to worry about any of that stuff.

Dorm lounges offered students a larger area in which to study or hold meetings. Lynn Nishimura 144 Residential Life . a Lynn Nishimura A resident makes use of his dorm lounge by studying for a midterm. On any given night, several students could be found in a dorm lounge, each utilizing it for a different purpose. There were those who went to study, those who went to sleep, those who went to socialize, and those who just went to see what everyone else was there for. No matter what the reason, residence hall lounges may well have been the most versatile of places on campus, as many dorm residents discovered. According to Teresa Lee, a Resident Assistant of Canyon Point, " Study lounges are cool because when you see others study it motivates you to study too instead of falling asleep. " As a fifth year Molecular Cell Biology major, Lee was able to enjoy the studious atmosphere of her lounge. However, many others weren ' t quite so fortunate,- several dorm lounges were commonly used for meetings and social events such as movie nights and karaoke contests. " It ' s more of a social lounge than a study lounge where I come from. Plus it ' s comfortable if you don ' t want to sleep in your own room, " commented Robert Lee, a second year Business Economics major and resident of Sproul Hall. Mai Nguyen, a floor representative and a second year International Economics major, found the lounges useful for dorm government meetings. Commented Nguyen, " It ' s kind of sad that we have to interrupt people ' s studying when we come into the lounge for a meeting, but it ' s great that there are so many other lounges around. There ' s always somewhere else to go to study. " Some students were bothered that they were not able to study in the lounges when others were sleeping or socializing. Others simply didn ' t care. " I don ' t really know what goes on in there, but the doors are always closed when I pass by, " noted Georgia Jeffers, a first year Civil Engineering major. Lounges were one of the few nearby places where dorm residents could retreat to escape from the distractions of their rooms and roommates, regardless of what they chose to do there. Whether it was to sleep, study, or socialize, dorm lounges were definitely the comfortable place to go. Story By: Wendy Tan J_ounges 145 A front desker cheerfully hands a resident some messages.

" After receiving the desker ' s affirmative, the caller continued, " Well, my roommate and I just cannot think of Larry ' s last name from the show. We ' re going crazy. " On duty during the late hours of the night shift, receiving odd requests was just another part of the job for students who worked at the front desk in the dorms. Although the most common request was for a room key due to residents locking themselves out, front deskers got various requests and questions that weren ' t so relevant to residential life. Rick Barsh, a fifth year History major, who worked at the front desk for almost two years, shared, " Basically we ' re here to help residents with whatever questions they have. I sometimes get calls asking about classes and URSA. People also call to ask about places in Westwood. It ' s not really in the job description, but hey, I ' ll do what I can to help a resident out. " Some of the advantages that the deskers felt their job had to offer were the ability to socialize with residents and the simple duties involved, such as handing out lunch and dinner coupons and mail duties. The most agreed upon advantage of working at the front desk was that the hours were very flexible. Juliet Song, a second year Biochemistry major, felt that she often found the late shift to be a good way to keep up in her classes. " Sometimes the different hours mix me up, " Juliet stated, " but working late a couple of days a week gives me the chance to study when there isn ' t as much action. " The unusual hours could be a disadvantage, however. The front desk was a twenty-four hours a day facility and covering some of those hours could be draining or inconvenient. " Sometimes we have to stay and work during times when other residents get to go home or go on vacation, " expressed Jason Young, a second year Business Economics major. " Last year I had to stay and work during Thanksgiving. That wasn ' t all that great, but we all have to take our share. " Whatever the problem may have been, residents always knew that any questions could be directed to the front desk.

Many monitors stated that although they enjoyed their job, one major disadvantage was working during unsual hours. Lynn iNisnimura Vivran, coffee and good reading. These three staples were what got many door access monitors through shifts which made night owls cringe. But who are these men and women of the night, and what compelled them to forgo sleep for a mere $5.73 an hour? It could be because of the easy commute, since most monitors lived in the dorm that they worked in, and on slow nights they were inadvertently paid to study. Perhaps one of the biggest perks was the stories that could be told of the interesting things that occurred as the night progressed. According to many a monitor, it was these stories that helped make the sleep deprivation worth it. The most prevalent story was that of inebriated Freshmen struggling to sign themselves in after forgetting who they had given their IDs to for safeguarding. " We feel bad for them, especially those that forget their IDs more than once a week because then we can ' t help teasing them! " remarked Kevin Cady, a monitor in Dykstra Hall. Despite these benefits, the detriments appeared to be overwhelming. Class schedules had to be planned accordingly so as to allot time to sleep " the morning after. " Though there were two shifts, it was hard to decide which was better. The first shift began at 9pm and ended at 2am. The second shift began at 2am and ended at 6am. Each night, the monitors greeted their arrivals cheerfully and with professionalism. It was, after all, the beginning of the night and boredom and crankiness had yet to set in. As the night progressed, the rush died down and one could see a marked decrease in the amusement of the monitors as they patiently awaited the arrival of more residents to be checked in. Although many residents gave monitors little or no acknowledgement upon their arrival, monitors appreciated it when they were given attention. " It was nice when residents would acknowledge our presence and talk to us. I know it was easy for them to forget that we are students too, so when they made the effort it was appreciated, " remarked monitor Tonya Lee.

Although having a car in the dorms was convenient for some, others complained that it forced them to be chauffers for their friends. Images of cruising around Los Angeles, exploring the sights and sounds of the city with the song " Life on the Highway " playing on the radio represented how most students viewed having their own car while living in the dorms. However, this fantasy came to a screeching halt as they slammed on their brakes mere seconds after turning onto Westwood Boulevard. Many students quickly realized that the constant gridlock of LA. dampened their adventurous motoring spirits. " Sometimes I wish football games weren ' t so far away because the traffic on the freeway is usually so bad and parking at the Rose Bowl is so impossible, that by the time you get to the game you don ' t even care who wins anymore, " lamented Ashley Ahern, a second year English major. For many students, the waste of time in traffic stopped them from going to many places, especially if they had busy schedules and couldn ' t afford to sit idly in traffic for hours on end. A quick trip to the mall may actually have taken a couple of hours depending on the traffic. Another problem that students faced with having a car in the dorms was that they became instant chauffeurs to their friends. Requests for rides to places such as the Rose Bowl, to a local market, or even a nearby city were heard by car owners. ' The odd thing about LA. is that everyone needs a car to get around, but nobody has a car so you often take on the role of Morgan Freeman in the movie Thriving Miss Daisy ' , " remarked Jim Zelenay, a second year Political Science major. Residents with automobiles were forced to sacrifice money for gas and parking permits, while rarely receiving any money in return to help offset the high expense of maintaining a car in L.A. Some students also spent many extra hours driving their friends around with little thanks in return for their services. Because of the difficulties that having a car in the dorms presented, many students would agree the song that declares, " These Boots were made for Walking, " would be a better transportation option. Story By: Kelly Krueger Besidentswith Cars_ 151 152 Residential Life Lynn Nishimura After a long day of class, students take advantage of the Fire-Side Lounge in the residential halls to study. In the dorms, there was much more space to study than in an apartment. Late night talks, open-door nights, Shakey ' s at 1 am, and constant companionship, no matter what the hour, this is what many a sophomore remembered when making the " big decision " regarding their living arrangements the next year. What appeared to be forgotten, however, was the lack of privacy, waking up to your neighbor ' s alarm as it blared through the paper thin walls, bouts with food poisoning from the cafeteria,- all for a not so reasonable price. Being a second year student, living in a structured setting was still a feasible, if not attractive option. After all, who wanted to come home after a long day of class and work and have to make dinner for themselves and maybe even their roommates? However, with the start of the school year, the " Freshman Enthusiasm " for dorm living began to wane, the novelty of the situation wore off, and a " been there, done that " attitude set in. It was hard for many to pinpoint what made this year different from the last, though some were quite vocal with their takes on the situation. " I think that the main difference between this year and last is the lack of camaraderie on the floor. No one is ever just hanging out, and only rarely are the doors left open, " said second year live-in Karen Abuav. " No one wants to be here anymore, " she added. Many students chose to forgo space for the opportunity to re-live their Freshman living experience, and as the school year progressed, began to question their decision as the dorm rooms seemed to decrease in size and the desire for privacy and personal space grew. " I can ' t take the claustrophobia anymore! It ' s so bad that I would rather have to cook and clean than live here, " exclaimed returning resident Kelly Lambert. Yet for all the detriments, one could not forget that with the trials of dorm living also come the joys and the memories. Despite the complaints, many of the returnees took their second year of dorm living for what it was, their last year in a structured environment without the reality of independent living. Story By: Meredith Magner Second Year Residents 153 Lynn Nrshtmura 154 Residential Life A resident unpacks his furniture as he prepares to move into his room. Moving in was a day long process which left many students exhausted by its end. " Hold the elevator! " This was a phrase made familiar to all Bruin residents during UCLA ' s fall move-in weekend. As part of the weekend, students had to endure either steep stairs or crowded elevators and hallways, oftentimes dealing with both. Aching muscles, beads of sweat trickling down foreheads, and minor sprains were all symbolic of the moving day ordeal. Although many students arrived early in the morning and were settled in by the afternoon, grunts and groans could still be heard throughout the entire day as the workout marathon continued. While some eagerly anticipated the swarm of parents and relatives, others questioned their reasons for wanting to live in the dorms at all. Whether residents toiled or sweat as they hauled pounds of school supplies, personal necessities, and appliances, or merely had relatives bear the load, move-in day was a shared experience among all those involved. As the cars and U-Hauls rolled away and farewells were said, most students were relieved that the chaos of the day was nearly over. However, due to the large number of items students brought with them to the dorm, the effects of the move remained days after. First year Music major Lauren Smith, who was assigned to live in Hedrick ' s 3rd floor lounge with seven others, recalled, " I would almost trip every time I turned around. " First year Engineering major Nora Chan faced the same dilemma, stating, " There was so much stuff that I couldn ' t even get into my closet! " Despite the physical burden move-in day created, most Bruins considered it a great time to make new friends and get acquainted with new faces. Though the effort and time invested into move-in day was not easily forgotten, many Bruins agreed that it helped them get adjusted to the crowded dorm life. Story By: Elizabeth Diaz I _ Move-In Day 155 Mike MuckerheiOo 156 Residential Life Joking around with one dorm resident, kids from nearby communities enjoyed the Halloween festivities. Residents decorated their halls and dressed-up for kids to trick-or-treat in the dorms. Mike Muckerheide Loud, excited, and boisterous kids, what else could you expect from " Hall-o-ween " at the dorms? With hundreds of inner-city elementary kids bused during the week of Halloween, it was obvious that there was candy, tricks, and treats in store. Participating children ranged from the young ages of two, to the older thirteen-year-olds. Regardless of age, the whole affair proved a fun time for everyone. The annual tradition, in its ninth year, gave students a chance to take part in the ghoulish spirit by their being able to help with the set-up of the carnival in Sunset Commons and dress up to guide the children around. Filled with booths and a variety of scary decorations, the carnival replaced the once well-known haunted house dorm halls. Hitch Resident Assistant Danielle Edouarde informed, ' There was a lot of planning, but in the end budgets were just too tight and there wasn ' t enough time. " Despite the lack of activities for " Hall-o-ween " , the young bright smiles of children were still seen everywhere, hoping to get just one more piece of candy. Candy was sold to residents for this special event, and many recalled their own years of trick-or-treating and just couldn ' t help getting involved. Visions of Dracula, clowns, and outrageous costumes were seen on campus. Some costumed individuals were there to help out, while others appeared just to have fun. Among the chaos of the night, one thing was sure, the potent Halloween spirit reverberated everywhere. That spirit didn ' t exist merely because of the thrill in the air, rather it was a result of the integration between the school and the community. Everyone involved participated straight from the heart. The event marked a time to reflect on past Halloween experiences. One couldn ' t help but remember when neighborhood kids knocked excitedly on doors, seeking to satisfy their desires for candy. The homesick members of the UCLA community felt a little more at home on this ghostly night. Second year Psychology major Veronica Valdez remarked, " It was just like being in my neighborhood " .

Sunset Recreation Center provided students with a place to exercise with their friends. Lynn Ntshimura It was a sunny day in the dorms and the question that was on everyone ' s minds was, " What should we do today? " The answer that came to mind for many was to play one of the many recreational sports that was offered in the dorm area. Since the dorm facilities were able to accommodate a variety of sports, from basketball to water polo, there was something for everyone who wanted to participate in an athletic activity. From early morning to late evening, students could be seen running up and down the basketball courts located at Rieber and Dykstra Hall. Groups of people would join together to form a game and once games were started, other residents began to participate as well. For those who wanted to experience more of a competitive athletic atmosphere, many dorm floors put together basketball teams comprised of their residents. These teams played each other and during the spring, tournaments were held to determine which floor was the " king " of the courts. Sunset Recreation Center provided students with pools to swim in and tennis courts to play on. Though the pool was available to anyone with a student ID card, it was the dorm residents who made the most use of it, often by swimming laps or just taking a quick dip on hot days. Yet other students utilized the pool to create teams in which to play water polo. In addition, those who preferred to stay on solid, dry land, were provided the tennis courts as a fun athletic avenue. The many activities that were available to dorm residents provided convenient ways for students to get exercise without having to travel far.

Such activities gave roommates the opportunity to spend even more time with each other and bond. Lynn Nishimura As part of the " college experience, " most dorm residents found themselves sharing their rather small dorm rooms with a virtual stranger for a roommate As a result of differences in personalities and living habits, there were often endless complaints and horror stories of dorm residents who just couldn ' t seem to get along with their roommates. However, for a number of residents, just the opposite was true. These residents, though assigned to room with someone they had never met before, eventually discovered that they were able to develop close friendships with their roommates that lasted for more than just their one year of living together. " Even though I knew nothing about him when we met, I found out that he was a great person and a considerate roommate, " stated third year Physiological Science major Ben Bordador about his freshman year roommate. Bordador and his roommate, like many other dormmates who formed friendships with one another, decided to remain roommates even after moving out of the residence halls. Several residents also discovered that the differences they had between them did not prevent their friendship from developing, but contributed to its growth instead. It was often these differences that roommates enjoyed the most about one another. Whatever the differences or similarities were, these roommates proved that it was possible for two strangers to meet, live together, and still become friends. Though there will always be stories of the stereotypical " roommate from hell, " dorm residents could take comfort in the fact that not all roommates turned out as such. In fact, the person you shared your dorm room with could become your best friend.

Breaking All ming AH - Expectations After having lost their first two games, the Bruins maintained a nine game winning streak, which placed them fifth in the nation. Story by Becca Winder A new era began in UCLA Football - the Bob Toledo era. After overcoming first year jitters, a dismal 5-6 finish in 1996, and a seemingly hopeless 0-2 start, Coach Toledo guided his Bruins to nine straight wins, a No. 5 national ranking, and an appearance in the Cotton Bowl. Once a quarterback himself, Toledo served as a mentor to third year, Quarterback Cade McNown. Whether it was with a pass or a scramble, McNown, the national leader in pass efficiency, was a huge part of the Bruins ' offense which was ranked third in the nation at 41.7 points per game. Fourth year Skip Hicks used his size and speed to become one of the nation ' s toughest tail- backs. While breaking Pac-10 conference records for scoring in both a single sea- son and a career, Hicks led the nation in scoring, and was second with 24 touch- downs. Receiving national recognition as well, third year Place Kicker Punter Chris Sailer ' s kick-scoring was the highest in the nation. While Hicks and McNown led the offense, third year, Tight End Jim McElroy was often overlooked. With unbe- lievable speed and numerous moves, McElroy led the team in receiving yards with an average of 21.85 per catch. Also overlooked on such an explosive offensive team was the defense. Heading into the final game against cross-town rival USC, the Bruins experienced the sweet smell of success. With a seventh straight win over the Trojans and a Washington victory in the Apple Cup, the Bruins would have spent New Year ' s Day in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl. Although the Bruins did share the Pac-10 crown, the early season loss to the Cougars advanced Washington State to the Rose Bowl. Thus, the Bruins spent New Year ' s Day in Dallas, TX at the Cotton Bowl. With a 29-23 win over Texas A M, UCLA garnered their tenth victory in a row, a feat not accomplished since 1946.

Story by Kelly Krueger It was New Year ' s Day and the Bruins clenched the hard-fought win in the Cotton Bowl against Texas A M. While the smell of victory was sweet, the game was a bitter struggle that lasted well into the fourth quarter. At one point in the game the Bruins were down 16-0, but they eventually came back to win 29-23. The comeback was the second largest in Cotton Bowl history and con- tributed to just one of the many records established during the game. Although highly favored before the game, the Aggies proved to be a tough opponent for the UCLA Bruins because of their strong defensive line and their ability to see through the screen plays that UCLA attempted in the first half of the game. UCLA had to combat the effects of a five week layoff from play, a foreign field, and most importantly, a strong Texas defensive line. Despite the rocky beginning, the UCLA Bruins came alive in the second half to gain their tenth-straight victory. While the defense played almost perfect football throughout the game, the offense started its dominance late in the second quarter when junior quarterback, Cade McNown com- pleted a touchdown Skip Hicks pauses after the game to sign a pass to receiver Jim McElroy in the end zone. ball for a fan. Many UCLA players had friends and family attend the football game in Texas. The Bruins came back with a vengeance in the second-half and wore down the Aggies ' defensive line. Scoring two touchdowns quickly in the third quar- ter, and then again in the fourth, the Bruins gained the lead and ultimately the victory. The success of the Bruins in Texas left UCLA with a 10-2 record for 172 SpOItS the season and a fifth place ranking in the nation. for an open receiver.

Despite the loss of two pivotal seniors, Coach Joy Fawcett used her own playing experience to help the Bruins become a national soccer power. They defined success as the winning of the Pac- 10 championship, a return to the playoffs, and contention for the national title, and they achieved it by outsmarting, outman- ning, and outplaying their opponents with an 18-2-0 record. Much of the Bruin success was due in part to the consistent play of senior Forward Traci Arkenberg. Using her outstanding ball-control and tremendous power, Traci was the spearhead of the Bruin offense. Arkenberg led the team and the Pac- 10 in both goals and assists, with the help of other key players. Freshman Forward Venus James contributed with her speed and skill. From the midfield, seniors Sarah Miller and Louise Lieberman anchored the attack. In addition to a dynamite offense, the Bruins possessed an iron-clad defense. Nationally-ranked sophomore Goalkeeper Lindsay Culp, capitalized on last year ' s experience, and post- ed an outstanding GAA of 0.64. While assisting in the limi- tation of Bruin opponents to 163 shots on goal, seniors Tiffany Brown and Rhi Tanaka helped record ten shutouts during the season, including four straight ones. The Bruins finished regular season play with a perfect 9-0 record, and claimed its first-ever Pac- 10 championship. Furthermore, after shutting-out seventh-seeded Portland, the Bruins advanced to the second round of the NCAA playoffs. After a victory over the SMU Mustangs, the Bruins ' hopes of a national title were dashed by a loss to Notre Dame. Despite the loss, the success of the season exceeded even the team ' s imaginings.

Story by Becca Winder Although the team lost over half of the starting lineup to graduation in the 1996 campaign, the UCLA Men ' s Soccer team returned to the field in 1997 with a wealth of experience and a great deal of maturity. Despite the fact that the ros- ter was comprised of mainly freshmen and sophomores, the Bruins earned a num- ber three ranking in the pre-season coaches poll. En route to a 1 7-2 record and a Number 2 national ranking, Coach Sigi Schmidt led his Bruins to their third straight MPSF National Championship. Schmidt ' s eigh- teen years of coaching experience and league-high seven players in Major League Soccer illustrated his outstanding accomplishments and value to the team. The success would not have been possible without players such as third year Forward Seth George, who led the Bruin attack throughout the season. With the help of senior Forward Nick Theslof, and sophomore Forward Martin Bruno, George was able to terrorize opposing defenses with his speed, talent, and aggres- sion. The defense was sparked by the gutsy determination of senior Goalkeeper Matt Reis. Having been forced to play back-up to several of our nation ' s top keepers, Reis used his experience to hold his opponents to 0.84 goals on average. With the help of senior Defender Kevin Coye, Reis helped the Bruin defense record ten shutouts. The Bruins started their fifteenth consecutive NCAA tour- nament appearance by defeating Santa Clara for their first time in the NCAA playoffs. The following game, against Washington, was won by Seth George ' s goal in the 16th minute. The defense was forced to repel an all-out attack by the Huskies in the final 45 minutes of the game.

Both were an integral part of the Bruin team during the season. PAC-10 RECORD 9-10 strong senior players, the UCLA women ' s vol- leyball team qualified for the 26th time for NCAA tourna- ment play. Story by Sue Wichayanuparp r a year full of both ups and downs, the UCLA women ' s volleyball team completed their season by qualifying for the NCAA tournament. For the 26th time, the Bruins competed in the tournament and successfully defeated Pepperdine in a decisive 3-1 victory during the first round of play. However, UCLA was ultimately eliminated from the competition after suc- cumbing to a 2-3 loss to No. 5 UC Santa Barbara. Ranked No. 24 in the nation, the UCLA women ' s volleyball team suf- fered a few disappointing mid-season losses to both Washington and Washington State. Nevertheless, the relatively young team, which includ- ed two of the country ' s top players, freshmen Amy Nihipali and Celeste Person, later garnered successive wins over San Diego State, the University of Oregon, and Oregon to finish with an overall record of 17-13. Three senior players contributed to the strength of the team with their outstanding performances and leadership. Captain and outside hitter Kara Milling, setter Kim Coleman, and outside hitter Tanisha Larkin all proved to be formidable athletes on the court. Milling ' s powerful serves, as well as her previous experience training with the U.S. National Team earned her praise from fel- low teammates. Coleman was a serious threat to opposing teams because of her blocking skills and led both the conference and the nation in assists, averaging 5.18 per game. Larkin, a return- ing starter, demonstrated her excellent hitting by racking sever- al kills during the course of each game. Under the training of Coach Andy Banachowski, who had over 30 years of collegiate coaching experience, the Bruins were able to exhibit their skills in all aspects of the game. Upon recalling her years on the team, Larkin commented, " Being here has taught me that if you work hard enough, good things will come... even though you might have challenges, you can always ASUCLA Photography 1997 Women ' s Volleyball Team: (Top rowl Michelle Quon.

Story by Megumi Horiuchi The 1997-98 season opened with several question marks regarding the future of the men ' s basketball team, one in particular concerned the team ' s ability to recover from the loss of leadership of last year ' s seniors. However, all doubts were laid to rest as this year ' s senior class came into its own through the periodic flashes of greatness displayed by sneiors Toby Bailey, J.R. Henderson, and Kris Johnson. Problems with consistency may have plagued this team, but when they were " in the zone " , these players raised the bar for college basketball to another level. One of the hurdles which the team had to face were the great expectations which stemmed from recent years ' performances. Unfortunately, hopes for anoth- er Pac-10 conference crown crumbled little as the Bruins proceeded to lose con- ference games to Arizona, Stanford, and Oregon. Nevertheless, the team man- aged to retain a national top-ten ranking throughout the season . Another obstacle which plagued the team was the controversy over the McCoy and Johnson suspensions. On September 29, 1997, athletic director Pete Dalis announced the indefinite suspensions of Johnson and junior Jelani McCoy for undisclosed reasons. The lack of explanation caused rumors to abound throughout UCLA and the college basketball community. Upon their reinstate- ment several weeks into the season, the Bruins had recently suffered a painful 41 point loss to North Carolina. This year, head coach Steve Lavin, who began his second year in this position, realizing the limitations of an essentially six-man lineup, recruited one of the finest freshman classes in the nation, including the much sought-after Baron Davis. Davis was joined joined by fellow freshmen Earl Watson, Billy Knight, Travis Reed, Rico Hines, Todd Ramasar, and Kevin Daley.

Davis and Watson played significant minutes, making immediate impacts. On home court against Oregon State, the tandem had the crowd on its feet when Watson ' s pass off the glass resulted in a spectacular dunk by Davis. They left their mark again at Oregon when tied at 66, Watson stole the ball in the game ' s waning moments, then earned the assist on Davis ' game-winning basket. The seniors contributed no less with solid offense and defense. Johnson was arguably the team ' s most consistent scorer, performing well during conference play. In addition, Bailey ' s role as the mainstay and leading senior of the team was apparent as he started every game during the season year. Only time will tell who will emerge as the leaders for the next year, as Bailey, Henderson, and Johnson will be lost to graduation. But the freshmen lived up to their reputations, and the team received letters of intent from two highly touted prospects in early November, creating a positive outlook for the coming season. Senior Kris Johnson sucessfully avoids the Trojans in an attempt to score. Johnson scored 20 points during the game in which UCLA defeated USC 101-84. 190 Sports Coach Steve Lavin shouts words of encouragement to his players.

With the shooting strength of players such as Hubbard, the Bruins were able to defeat California 74-53. 1M Sports The Bruins won several difficult games against tough competi- tors in order to become a team that was a force to contend with. Story by Kelly Krueger The UCLA women ' s basketball team was not the team that it had been in the past. The team played incredibly well and overcame tough opponents in order to com- K plete multiple game winning streaks. The reason for the success of the team had much to do with the return of experienced, key players and the commitment the women put into the season. Although the Pac- 1 was filled with tough teams, the Bruins were able to play competively throughout the season and end with a good season finish. One of the key players of the season was sophomore guard, Erica Gomez. She was named Pac- 10 Freshman of the Year in 1996, but was unable to play during the 1997 season due to a knee injury. She returned to the court this year and was an asset to the team in scoring. In the game against Berkeley, Gomez had nine assists and was the team ' s leading scorer with fourteen points. The Bruins defeat- ed Cal 74-53, thereby increasing their winning streak. Sophomore forward, Maylana Martin contributed talent and leadership to the team and was responsible for much of the success of the Bruins. She was also named Freshman of the Year in the 1997 season and was the team captain and leading scorer of the USA Junior National team in the 1997 summer season. In the game against Arizona State, Martin scored a game-high of twenty-two points which contributed to the UCLA victory of 95-73. Other key players included sophomore forward guard Melanie Pearson, senior forward Aisha Veasley, and senior center Carla Houser, all of whom contributed to the success of the women ' s team. Although the team had to battle injuries and a tendency towards fouling out during games, the women were able to pull together and defeat many nationally ranked teams. By successfully beating such teams as Duke and Arizona State, the season provided national recognition for the UCLA women ' s basketball team. With a young returning team comprised of talented players, the future looked extremely bright. Mike Muckerhetdc ;; ' - . Sophomore Guard Erica Gomez leaps past the stunned Stanford defense.

With several experienced members , the UCLA swimming and diving team continued to grow in skill and level of competition throughout the season . Story by Sue Wichayanuparp The UCLA women ' s swimming and diving team showed through their perfor- mances throughout the season that they embodied the essence of experience and determination. With eight returning All-Americans and no losses of team mem- bers to graduation, the Bruins lived up to their reputation of excellence. Each of the eight All-Americans contributed to the strength of the swimming team. Because they earned medals in the World University Games, sophomore Keiko Price and senior Lindsay Etter were able to bring a degree of international competition experience to the team. In addition, senior Jill Jenkins possessed a great capacity for versatility, competing in the backstroke, sprint freestyle, and butterfly events. Although nearly half of their team was comprised of freshmen, the UCLA divers exhibited few signs of inexperience during the year. Seniors Tracy Wilcox and Rose Huelskamp, both All-Americans, competed well throughout the season in both the 1 -meter and 3-meter spring. During mid-season, the Bruins faced one of their toughest competitions in two consecutive meets against Stanford and Cal. Though UCLA lost both meets, the individual members of the swimming and diving team had outstanding performances. In the 100 breastroke, Etter captured first place, with teammate Amber Wines coming in second. Price dominated the sprint competi- tion by winning both the 50 and 100 freestyle. Wilcox and Huelskamp placed first and second, respectively in the 3 -meter spring while freshman Anne Baghramian fin- ished third. Under the guidance of head swim coach Cyndi Gallagher and head diving coach Andy Kwan, the Bruins was able to improve their skills and foster an atmosphere ASUCLA Photography 1997 Women ' s Swimming Diving Team: (Top row) Rosalind Dunn, Amanda Hall, Lauren Westberg, Jill Jenkins, Head diving Coach of team unity.

Degteva was integral to the Bruin ' s domination during the season. The 1998 women ' s gymnastics team entered their season with high hopes and fresh memories of their past season ' s NCAA Championship, the first in UCLA ' s history. While the team had ten returners who were joined by three experienced freshmen, there was still a lot of work to be done if they were to repeat their sweep of the NCAA Championship. The Bruins entered the season with several injuries and were intent on working to maintain a healthy team for the rest of the year. Unfortunately, that was not meant to be. Mid-way through the season, senior Carmen Tausend tore her ACL on the bars which kept her out of competition for the remainder of the season. The Bruins were also forced to compete without the experience of several other experienced members due to various injuries. The absence of such members took its toll as the season progressed and UCLA suffered its first loss of the year to the University of Washington. However, the meet despite the loss, was not a disappointment for the Bruins since they still made a strong showing, losing only by 1 .475 points. Throughout the year, the Bruins were ranked fairly consistently in 5th place, a good position in light of their difficult schedule. They started the season with a meet against Georgia and continued with a meet against NCAA runner-up Arizona State and 4th place Michigan. Amidst the pressure, the Bruins still performed well. They went on to win the Bruin Classic, which was held in Pauly Pavilion and brought top teams from throughout the nation to compete. These successes were due, in large part, to the cohesion within the team itself, but senior standout Stella Umeh played a large role in helping to ensure that the team performed smoothly. A seven time All American, Umeh consistently came though for the team in times of trouble. When Tausend was injured during the meet against Washington State, Umeh was rotated in although she was not scheduled to compete that night.

Despite losing three- All-American and school record holder for kills, quick hitter Paul Nihipali ( ' 97), the Bruins remained tough through 1998, retaining 12 lettermen and five starters. They maintained their dynasty which, before this year, produced five straight division titles, four of the last five players of the year, and three national championships since 1993. The volleyball team had outstanding talent in Ail-American sophomore setter Brandon Taliaferro. He joined Karch Kiraly ( ' 82), Sinjin Smith (78), and Ricci Luyties ( ' 84) as the only setters to take the team to the NCAA finals in their first year. According to head Coach Al Scales, " He ' s the best setter in collegiate volleyball this year. " All-Americans senior Tom Stillwell and sophomore Adam Naeve, along with a host of dedicated backup players, made the Bruins ' front line of quick hitters the best in the nation. Stillwell, who captained the World University Games team, led the country in blocking for two consecutive seasons. Junior quick hitter Danny Farmer provided strong backup, which enabled Scales to juggle his talented lineup. The team ' s talent shined through in season play as the Bruins went undefeated through the first half of their season. Even Mountain Pacific Sports League (MPSF) arch rivals UCSB couldn ' t stop the Bruins. The Gauchos were devastated in the 3-0 match where junior Fred Robins recorded a double-double with 10 kills and 12 digs. In a game against Cal State San Bernardino, the Bruins set a school record for attack percentage record at .690. Action came to a climax at the NCAA championships. The Bruins came with an ax to grind from last year ' s heartbreak defeat to Stanford in the championship finals where their loss by two points in the fifth game cost them the national title. This year, the Bruins faced tough opposition from the home- town heroes of Hawaii and perennially strong Stanford. The tough competition gave the team a chance to finally put their talent to the test and shoot for the goal of UCLA Volleyball ' s 17th NCAA Championship.

The UCLA women ' s track and field team utilized their skill and speed to dominate both the Pac-10 and NCAA conference. Story by Jodi Ezrin. The UCLA Women ' s Track and Field team started their 1998 season as the returning Pac-10 champions. The team profile included a myriad of dedicated, competitive members including one returning NCAA champion in the discus, seven other all Americans, six returning members from the league title squad, and the fourth highest recruited class in the nation. Sophomore Seilala Sua was the returning NCAA discus champion. She ranked consistently in the top U.S. throwers, number two in the U.S. in discus, and number five in the shot put. Sua held the U.S. Junior record with personal bests in the shot put and discus. Returning senior Suzy Powell was the collegiate record holder in the discus. She was ranked number one in the U.S. in discus, and number five in the javelin. The 1998 season also brought seven other returning Ail-Americans. They included junior hurdler Joanna Hayes and junior sprinter Andrea Anderson. The seniors consisted of hurdler Bisa Grant, throwers Nada Kawar, Rachelle Noble and runner Cicely Scott. Rounding off the returning members was All-American sophomore jumper Deana Simmons. Along with the talent of the experienced group of athletes were the incoming freshmen members, ranked number four by Track Field News. Included in this class were two-time prep Ail-Americans Shakedia Jones, Damesha Craig, and Michelle Perry. Distance runners Katie Nuanes and Julie Ott also contributed to the wide variety of talent displayed in the women ' s 1998 track and field team. For the first time this season, women ' s pole vaulting was added as an official event at both the NCAA and conference meets.

Leading the season was returning NCAA champion, senior Mebrahtom Keflezighi, who won individual titles in 1997 for the indoor 5000m, outdoor 5000m, and outdoor 10,000m. The team also boasted three returning Ail-Americans: seniors Josh Johnson in the javelin and Scott Slover in the pole vault, and junior Travis Haynes in the shot put. Not only was the team comprised of top performers in almost every event, but it also included a recruiting class that was rated No. 3 in the nation by Track Field Netys. The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Indoor Championships in Reno saw a most impressive performance by the Bruins where many personal records were set. The distance medley team automatically qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships with a field house record time of 9:41:80.

Crecion played baseball and football and was a professional prospect for both sports. PAC 10 RECORD 10-17 Coming into the season, expectations for the UCLA baseball team were admittedly lower than the year before. After all, they lost their two best players as well as their entire starting rotation. They also had fifteen freshman coming in, which resulted in a pre-season ranking of 18, down from the top-ten ranking of last season. One could call this a rebuilding year when compared to last year ' s College World Series bound team. However, coach Gary Adams had other plans for his team. Recruiting what was considered the top freshman class in the nation, he saw his team as merely retooling and capable of winning the championship. In his 24th season as the team ' s coach, Adams expected his freshman to produce right off the bat and counted on them to help provide offensive support. Freshman Chase Utley, who was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the second round of the draft, rejected the opportunity to turn professional and instead served as UCLA ' s leading shortstop. Key games during the year showed the team ' s untapped potential. Against University of San Diego, junior center fielder and co-captain Eric Valent was able to break out of his power shortage. As a sophomore last year, Valent hit 27 home- runs. Yet, for the first seven games this year, he had a grand total of zero. He finally broke out of the slump by launching one far beyond the right field wall. After the game, Valent reminisced about the hit. " It feels good, I hadn ' t been swinging the bat that well the first couple of weeks. I was in a little bit of slump, but I ' m starting to see the ball better and getting my timing down. " The season was one of many ups and downs. The team went through a few 4 game skids, but they were able to find positives in each loss. The freshman gained much needed experience throughout the year as they contributed to many wins. The year proved to be one of change and restructuring. knowledge they attained during the year to lead ASUCLA Phowgrapny Expectations rose for next year as the young players hoped to The 1997 Baseball Team: (Bottom RowlBaseball SID Jeff Blank.

Coming off of probation, the combination of new and seasoned players created a strong women ' s softball team that outshined their competition. Story by Catherine Calleja. The dark haze that had been left over the 1997-1998 women ' s softball team had no incisive repercussions on the Bruins at the start of their new season. After being placed on probation for the year, the team chose to perceive the blow as a challenge rather than a defeat. The Bruins, " came out playing UCLA ball from the start, " commented assistant coach Kelly Inouye-Perez, in regards to the winning streak displayed by the women ' s softball team early in the season. Although the 1997-1998 season appeared to be a year to dread for the team, the returning seniors and numerous rookies proved that obstacles were set to be overcome. Not being able to make the playoffs due to probation caused much anguish for the softball program, but further heartache came when many of the all-stars on the 1996-1997 team decided to redshirt and pitching extrodinaire Christa Williams transferred. Nevertheless, the UCLA softball team proved that they were capable of overcoming any potential obstacles, as each member showed leadership in various areas. Rather than starting anew, the 1997-1998 team picked up right where the past team had left off, continuing the success and amazing status of UCLA softball. With the loss of team members who had graduated, leadership roles amongst the team began to change. Early in the season, returning seniors took on the job of leading the rest of their teammates. Each veteran guided the team in different aspects. Senior shortstop Nicole Odom stated of the many new team members, " every time they are on the field they are representing UCLA, but they handle it because they are fighters. " Both returning and rookie players alike displayed their fighting spirit throughout the season. Head Coach Sue Enquist and her group of determined Bruins demonstrated to the nation what UCLA pride and spirit were all about. 214 Sports Freshman Stephanie Swanson pitches the ball.

The year held high expectations for the UCLA men ' s tennis team. Ranked No. II 2 in the nation at the start of the year, the team was expected to humiliate many o! their opponents. They did not disappoint. With Jean-Noel Grinda, the No. 6 ranked player in the nation, and other top ranked players, the Bruins were able to shut out many of their opponents during the year. In his fifth season as coach of the men ' s tennis team, Billy Martin knew what kind of talent he had to work with. He felt quite optimistic about the team ' s chances of winning the national title, stating, " The makeup of the team is good. We have good talent. Our singles lineup is very strong, but our doubles needs some work. " The Bruins dominated in their first away game of the year as they trounced the 70th ranked Irvine Anteaters. With five players holding rankings in the top 100 of the nation, the Bruins easily overpowered the Anteaters, shutting them out 7- by relying on impressive showings from each player. The team showed that they could be even better as they headed to Las Vegas to play UNLV, a school which had produced many top players in past years. Nevertheless, the Bruins once again produced a sweep, defeating UNLV 7-0. A key player in this match was Grinda, who defeated the 57th ranked Asaf Tishler 6-3, 7-5. Grinda also played doubles with Matt Breen, and together, they defeated the Rebels ' top duo of Nenad Zikovic and Gregor Skorin. The triumphs by UCLA and the return of top ranked players contributed to the Bruin ' s success. The players ' performances proved how great the team was and gave them confidence as they headed into the hunt for the national championship.

Basica played in the number one singles spot. PAC 10 RECORD 11-2 Despite numerous injuries, the women ' s tennis team was able to remain strong and be top contenders for the National Championship. Story by Alex Yu As one of the strongest teams in the nation, the UCLA women ' s tennis team entered the year with thoughts of winning the national title. With the return of eight top notch players, as well as the addition of highly touted freshman Cristina Popescu, the top juniors player from Canada, the Bruins ' prospects looked bright. The talent and depth that this team possessed led to thoughts that bringing home the championship was a realistic goal. However, the season was riddled with injuries to the team ' s star players. The number one player, Amanda Basica, was sidelined early on, as well as sophomore Katia Roubanova and junior Kati Kocsis. The loss of the players was especially devastating as Roubanova and Kocsis had entered the fall with doubles rankings of No. 7 and No. 1 1 in the nation, respectively. These injuries, though, showed how powerful the team was as they were still able to dominate and overpower many opponents. The first test came against the Anteaters of Irvine. With a No. 2 ranking entering the match, the Bruins swept the Anteaters with a 9-0 victory. In fact, the Bruins won five of the six singles matches in straight sets. Sophomore Annica Cooper was a key player as she stood in for Basica at the No. 1 spot. She easily won her match 6-1, 6-2. Cooper, who entered the fall ranked No. 21 in the nation, proved she was more than capable of filling the team ' s top singles position. In their second game, UCLA once again dominated, dismantling Utah by a score of 7-1. Cooper won convincingly with a victory over the No. 33 player in the nation. Impressive performances were also turned in by other players, such as senior Kelly Rudolph, who won 6-0,6-0. With their depth being tested early on in the season, backup players were able to step up and demonstrate their skills. As star players gradually returned to the lineup, the team began to look forward to winning the national championship.

Senior Amandine Vincent placed a team-high 1 7th at the season opening Rolex Fall Preview, which helped her team to finish in 1 1th place. Vincent ' s personal accomplishments later extended to the Dick McGuire Invitational, where she placed first in individuals, winning her first tournament in three years. The rest of her teammates were also successful in the same competition and the team proudly finished third. The Bruins soon tackled other challenges at the Golf World Invitational, where junior Sophie Sandolo finished 10th individually and the Bruins placed sixth as a team. Hosting their annual Pioneer Bruin Classic Tournament, the team competed against schools throughout the country, placing 10th out of the top 20 teams. The women ' s golf team shone with both new and seasoned players. Freshmen Leilani Bagby wowed many with her averaged 77.6 strokes per round, while first- year Alicia Um came close with 77.5. Senior Vincent lead the team with 74.4, her lowest stroke average, while junior Sandolo followed with 75.3 strokes per round. Not to be outdone by the women, the men ' s golf team also enjoyed their own share of accomplishments. Early in the season, this talented team placed 5th in the University of the Pacific Invitational, as well as placing 9th in the Nike Northwest Classic tournament. The men ' s golf team shared a number of personal victories as well. Returning junior B.J. Schlagenhauf placed 4th in the Nike Northwest Classic, while junior Brandon DiTullo, another returning golfer, finished second in the Fresno Lexus Golf Classic. The men ' s golf team also finished first in the Fresno Lexus Golf Classic, defeating all other competing schools. Freshmen players Parker McLachlin, Jeff McGraw, and Justin Kim all added their own skill to each tournament, showcasing their golfing talents. Both the men ' s and women ' s golf teams proved this season that teamwork was most important in creating a victorious team. The added benefit of strong, supportive players, old and new, each bettering their personal roles in the game, added to the success of the season.

Domination of the ball was a key for many of the women ' s successes. MPSF RECORD 8-1 By emphasizing team work, the Bruins achieved domination, although the battle to the top was arduous for the defending National Champs. Story by Catherine Calleja. Anticipation mounted at the start of the 1998 season for the women ' s water polo team. Having had intercollegiate status for only three years, the No. 1 Bruins already captured two consecutive National Collegiate crowns and were on the prowl for their third. Head coach Guy Baker along with assistant coach Adam Krikorian emphasized team unity above all else. Junior Mandy McAloon agreed with her coaches in this aspect, stating, " We have a very strong team as a whole - definitely not just one player. " The camaraderie among the players gave the Bruins a tight- knit family atmosphere as each team member exuded the confidence and leadership that had been necessary in making the team a success. The women ' s water polo team was " a shining example of leadership through work and action. " The ideal of talent and teamwork appeared to have been a winning combination for the UCLA women ' s water polo team as they continued throughout the season with success. In many of their matches, the Bruins were given the opportunity to let members of the bench receive game time as they dominated their opponents completely. Team captain and goalkeeper Nicolle Payne expressed her feelings of those games by declaring that " everyone got to play and we had a lot of fun. " The domination of the UCLA Bruins in women ' s water polo led to the anticipation of another title for the team members, their coaches, and their fans. In a mid-season game against the University of Massachusetts, UCLA easily defeated the Minutewomen 14- 3. Key players in the game included junior attacker and returning All-American Amanda Gall, junior playmaker Coralie Simmons, and defender McAloon. The obvious talent, intense determination, and desire of the entire team to work their hardest and compete well was what made the 1998 season for the women ' s water polo team phenomenal.

As they continued their years here, they gained new experiences, knowledge, and independence. This year ' s senior class was comprised of individuals from a range of backgrounds and a variety of interests. Yet, what they all had in common was the determination and dedication needed to complete their undergraduate years of education. From their first to their final year in college, the graduating seniors have not only seen changes in themselves, but in UCLA as well. The reconstruction of Royce Hall from a damaged structure into a newly renovated building served as a reminder of the transformations that seniors experienced throughout their years here.

Yet after only two weeks in paradise, she will embark into the world of advertising. Majoring in Communication Studies, Catherine has well prepared herself for this profession. Although UCLA does not have an advertising maji Catherine has already managed to gain " real-life " experience in the advertising field. After joining an .dvertising club on campus, Catherine and the club members competed at the College World Series of Advertising, an event sponsored by the American Advertising Federation which drew over 300 college teams nationally. Though inexperienced compared to the other participants, most of whom were advertising majors, Catherine ' s team faced the challenge of creating a $3 million comprehensive, roll-out campaign for Pizza Hut. Amazingly enough, Catherine and her team won the regional competition and placed second at the national level. Immensely impressed by their presentation, Pizza Hut executives flew the group to Dallas to present their campaign to the marketing department and the Board of Directors. It was this experience that ultimately convinced Catherine to choose advertising as a career. Catherine has also contributed to UCLA as a member of the Student Alumni Association (SAA). She found her particular niche in SAA by serving on several committees. As the Executive Director of the Dinners for 12 Strangers program, Catherine supervised a committee of 1 1 members in order to organize the 30th anniversary of Dinners. Catherine ' s other loves include ballet, an art she began at the age of three and continues to practice today. In addition, she considers herself a " die-hard Bruin fan. " During her years here, Catherine has learned, " Anything can be accomplished if you have the desire and determination. " Catherine Krum personified these beliefs, proving that nothing is impossible.

She originally joined the team because she was recruited and given a scholarship, but other reasons kept her on for all four years of her college career. Although the twice-a-day practices were grueling, the time commitment was enormous, and she was unable to start her sophomore year, Chrissy remained on the team. Her devotion paid off when the team won UCLA ' s first ever PAC-10 championship with a flawless 9-0 record. Chrissy, this title, and being one of the six original teammates to graduate in 1998 was one of her biggest achievements while at UCLA J m ftAfci U Throughout her four years of college, Chrissy was also involved in the Delta Gamma sorority. Through her involvement, she met many new friends, served on several volunteer projects, and had the opportunity to act as the VP of financing Chrissy ' s leadership positions were not only limited to her sorority. She also became actively involved in the UCLA Student Accounting Society in her sophomore year, eventually becoming treasurer of the organization. When Chrissy was not busy with soccer practices, studying, her sorority or the accounting society, s he- found time to volunteer at the Blind Children Center of Los Angeles. She contributed by working at the BCC booth at the Los Angeles Marathon and organizing fundraisers. One notable fundraiser was a soccer camp Chrissy created in the summer of 1997. After organizing, promoting, and running the camp on her own, she donated all the proceeds to the Blind Children Center. Chrissy Whalen describes herself as " adventurous, flirtatious, and thoughtful. " According to her, the most important thing she learned at UCLA was, " that you can not do everything on your own, and you ' re not expected to either. I have learned the importance of teamwork and helping each other through tough times, whether it be practice, relationships, or finals week. I learned to trust that others will come through for me...

Few believed Hannah would ever overcome her drug abuse, and many doubted her ability to succeed academically. However, this courageous young woman pursued her own dreams of higher education, fighting against all odds. Forced to support herself through school by working multiple jobs at 40 hours a week, Hannah still averaged a 3.74 GPA. By senior year, she ranked among the top 9% of her class, and ultimately graduated Magna Cum Laude. As an American Literatur e and Culture major with a Creative Writing concentration, Hannah wrote short stories and poetry for competitive creative writing workshops. Her creativity extended beyond literature into the visual arts,- where she taught herself to draw and int, preferring to create facial portraits with oils, watercolors, and pencils Hannah ' s interest in this hobby stemmed from her belief that " a person ' s facial expression reflects one ' s inner being. " In the future, Hannah plans to teach English at the college level, allowing her to concurrently pursue a writing career. Upon graduation, Hannah will begin teaching as a substitute teacher for the L.A. Unified School District. Always wanting to give back to her community, Hannah has already taught Sunday School at Young Kwang (Glory) Church for over four years. During this time, she has instructed her students in reading comprehension, listening, and writing skills. Hannah ' s devotion to her community also showed through her work as an administrative creative consultant with Mayan Pictures, an independent film and video production company that educates inner-city youths about AIDS and drug abuse. Hannah felt the most important thing she learned at UCLA was self-reliance. " Nothing is given to you on a silver platter. You must go and seek it yourself, " she advised, further quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson, " Make the most of yourself... for that is ail there is of you. " -Senior!

This however, was only one aspect of the multi-talented medical school bound student. He planned to be a clinical professor connected with a medical school in an urban setting in addition to continuing to see patients. Based on his years at CLA, Matthew had the experience and qualities to make his m a reality. Matthew was involved in a variety of groups on-campus. He was president of the UCLA International Students Association (ISA) his senior year. Although his term of president lasted only from the spring of 1997 to the spring of 1 998, he was a member of ISA during his entire time at UCLA. He feels proud of his involvement with ISA because, " It celebrates multiculturalism and the diversity of the student body that UCLA is fortunate to have. " On the social aspect of his UCLA career, Matthew was a founding father of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity. He also sewed as bot h the scholarship chair and the community service chair. One of the enjoyments he found in the fraternity was his involvement with the national philanthropy, PUSH America. The Regents Scholar Society benefited from Matthew ' s participation for two years. In addition, he was an officer of the UCLA Premedical society for two years and also served on the Phi Beta Kappa student council. Matthew feeis that these organizations, " strive to promote scholarship and service at UCLA, which I believe is a worthwhile goal. " Matthew ' s time at UCLA was filled with a academics, service, and extracurricular activities. He believes that UCLA afforded him the opportunity to learn about different people and in turn to learn more about himself. He felt that he especially learned about other cultures when he studied abroad at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. When asked what he hoped a press conference in twenty years about him would be about, he replied, " I hope they would be recognizing a person who has spent the last twenty years caring for people, one patient at a time, and who has still had enough time to pursue his passion for photography and music.

Russell felt that one of his greatest feats while at UCLA was his participation on the track team. Walking onto the UCLA track team as a freshman and having missed the initial training period, Russell later went on to break the four minute mark for the! 1500 meter and became a contender for the top spots in cross-country. Although he was forced to end his days of competition after a serious injury to his knee, Russell believes his time on the team taught S him invaluable lessons As president of Sigma Phi Epsilon, and past Vice- fc President, Philanthropy and Academics Chairman, Rush Chairman, and Junior Marshall, as well as Chief Justice of the Interfraternity Council, Russell enthusiastically dedicated his time to the Greek system. His interest in the judicial branch of the fraternity system was spurred when he participated in Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of " Alcohol as a freshman. As an Economics major with a minor in Classics, Russell will attend law school close to his home in the Bay Area. In addition to law, Russell has concurrent aspirations for a successful music career. A major portion of his life has been dedicated to his music. Formally trained in piano since age five and self-taught in the guitar since the seventh grade, Russell has already composed over fifteen songs. His passion for music did not go unrewarded, as his band ' s debut CD was released in the Spring of ' 97. Success for Russell has come in all forms, from involvement in his fraternity to track, law, and music.

Not only was she involved in both campus and community programs, she also successfully completed a double major in Political Science and English. Tammy feels she learned from UCLA that " doing my best is the one thing that I can always expect from myself,- it is only when I fail to try that I am the most disappointed in myself. " On campus, Tammy was involved with her sorority as both the Scholarship and Philanthropy Chairpersons. She also participated in Student Government activities as an intern, in which she organized an administration program to help get students involved. Beyond campus, Tammy had the opportunity to intern in Washington D.C. through the CAPPP program. This internship developed into a full-time job, where Tammy spent a summer working with Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez. In the community, Tammy volunteered as an advisor for the California YMCA Youth and Government program. She was a supervisor in the program and she also acted as a college counselor, big sister, confidant, policeman, speech coach, and supportive voice. Her experiences showed her how essential adults really are in the lives of young people. Tammy plans to work on Congressional campaigns and attend a top law school in the future. " I want to serve my community and my state because I believe in helping people and leading by showing others to become leaders themselves, " explained Tammy. Her outlook for the future was to continue her involvement in the community and eventually run for state legislature, Congress, and Governor of California.

Your personalities just seem to click, and it seems your friendship has existed for years. Immediately, there is a sense of trust and sincerity. And a feeling of closeness develops instantly. Once in a while, somebody special comes into your life, and right away you know you have found a friend. Even after parting, this friend leaves such an impression that from time to time, for no reason, you think of that friend, and it makes you happy. Seniors, we are so proud of you.

UeeAnn: thank you so much for sticking around an extra year and helping yearbook out. i don ' t think i would have been able to do the day-to-day things without your persistent and helpful assistance, good luck next year out there in the real world. Justine: don ' t look now, but we did it! can you believe it? it went by so quickly, and yet you still have another long year to look forward tol good luck and don ' t have any nervous breakdowns, gold crown here we come! Anita: my under-appreciated editor, i know there were times in the year that I didn ' t treat you right, but always remember that this book would not have been half as good without your help, you are one of my bestest friends and i hope that you know how much i appreciated you standing by my side this year, you ' re the greatest. Kelly: if i only had a quarter to give you for every caption that you wrote but we didn ' t use. . . i ' d be broke and you ' d be a millionaire! thanks for being the most efficient of us all and keeping a " realist " view on things, good luck next year in d.c.

Matthew: well, it ' s finally over, the sports section looks great! thanks for all the work and dedication, i don ' t even want to begin to count all the trips you made over to sports info to hook us up with all the latest scores and pictures, thanks for always having things ready. Mike: i think your nickname should be " life-saver. " you came through for me so many times this year, i really appreciate it. even during the rain (senior spotlights) you showed up with camera in one hand and umbrella in the other, you ' re a great photographer mike, thanks! Alex: i ' m glad that you joined staff this year, i wish you continued success writing sports stories, it ' s up to you to keep the testosterone in yearbook.

Karen: thanks for your help and i hope that you can find the time to rejoin yearbook next year because Justine is going to need your help!

J Martinique: you did a great job on sales staff and i hope you come back for another year, you ' re not graduating are you?

Olivia: to the future editor of bruinlife, good luck and I hope you are up to it. somebody has to fill Justine ' s shoes, right? make mrs. vanderwall proud, it wasn ' t that difficult in high school, was it?

This picture is not supposed to poke fun at the Asians who crowd the steps to Kerckhoff Hall. It is merely a work break that the editors of Bruinlife chose to take during a deadline. Be careful future editors: editing may cause bad habits. the infamous dallas trip will forever be in my memories, " those crazy California girls " sure do know how to have fun! from sleeping in the airport to having those " official " business meeting in joy ' s room, we were definitely the best school there (with maybe the exception of texas tech!)

Richard: thanks for always making fun of me. it does wonders for my self-esteem, have you taken your senior portrait yet? Jeremy: keep it real, good luck next year with pac ties, can I become a groupie? Vy: so did we do an effective job in persuading you? i think so. how can you possibly resist our persuasive tactics? just remember one thing next year: they only like you because of the popcorn! :) Lynn: another one of my " life-savers. " you were always available for those last minute photo assignments, this book would be a lot less interesting, with a lot of blank pages, if i didn ' t have you taking all those pictures forme, thanks! Kit: i think everybody finally learned how to spell your name, you are a great photographer and I hope you continue to shoot for yearbook and I guess, the daily bruin. Audrey: thanks for going out with me that one night to get that last minute shot of a smoker, i hope that you learned all that you wanted to in computer terms and if you ever need any help, I ' ll be there.

Patrick: Thanks for all the late night help, don ' t these pictures look great? how ' bout some yoshinoya? Charles, Dave, Helen: i think you guys are my roommates, but judging by how much time i ' m actually there, its definitely questionable, thanks for not renting my room out and thanks for all those late night " madden 98 " games, yes, you are better, but I like playing anyway s.
