Magic Is . ..
At some point during our college career, we wondered
where the days went. No matter how much complaining we
did about all the work. timejust seemed to slip right on by.
We started to read chapter one and before we knew it, we
were taking the final. lt's like magic.
That magic started here way back in 1872 for the students
who went to Buchtel College. Since then, buildings have been
built, degrees have been awarded and The University of
Akron has grown to become the third largest state university
Magic is more than pulling a rabbit from a hat. We'll go as
far to say that magic is the link between the impossible and
the possible. Just remember what it was like when you aced
that test. got that special date for Saturday night or won your
first game of chug-a-lug!
As you glance through this book, every now and then you'll
notice a few pictures and read a few paragraphs that will assist
you in becoming aware that there has definitely been "Magic
Through The Years."
Magic is being apart of the peace and quiet.
Magic is knowing whereyou are without being told.

The fall of '79 enabled us to enjoy the outside due to
the warm weather. And as the amount of trees and flow-
ers increased on campus, we were able to take in the
multitude of autumn colors around us.
For the freshmen. it is generally hours of reading
Prose Kvlodelx and learning that they only have to look
one way when they cross Buchtel Avenue!
Of course. there's always time to get together with
those we haven't seen for awhile. Catching up with old
friends seems to be one of the best reasons to start the

When I Have Fears That I May Cease To Be
When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has gleaned my teaming brain,
Before high-piled books, in charact'ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripened grain,
When I behold, upon the night's starred face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And think that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance,
And when I feel - fair creature of an hour! -
That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love! -then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink.
- John Keats
Back to Bierce
Guzzetta Hall is one of the most colorful buildings during fall semester. Some last minute "cramming" for fha! jirsi
Fall means new homes for the dormies.
Considering how we suffered
through the violent weather of '77 and
'78. the winter of '79-'80 let us off fairly
easily. Although we had some tempera-
tures in the teens. the snow didn't bury
us like in years before.
There were a few disappointments.
however. Skiers lost out due to a little
amount of white stuff. and we didn't
have any snow days off from classes.
For the first time. a Winter Weekend
was jointly sponsored to warm up the
spirits. IFC-Panhel. ASG. and RHPB
got together and planned a dance in
The Chuckery. Casino Night and an ice
cream eating contest. Although the
events didn't gather a lot of people. the
groups are planning to increase the par-
ticipation for years ahead.
When the weather finally broke
toward the end of March. it was a good
feeling to put the mittens and hats in
storage until next year.
The Snow Man
One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pinetrees crusted with snow:
And have been cold a long time
To behold thejunipers shagged with
The spruces rough in the distant
Of the January sung and not to think
Of any misery in the sound of the wind.
In the sound of a few leaves.
Which is the sound of the land
Full of the same wind
That is blowing in the same bare place
For the listener, who listens in the
And. nothing himself. beholds
Nothing that is not there and the
nothing that is.

After those bitter days full of snow and blustery winds, we usu-

Spring . . . ahh, a time for digging out those favorite T-shirts and
shorts and some suntan oil. There are usually millions of things to
do, even if it'sjust sitting on the lawn eating an ice cream cone and
chatting with a few friends.
Some of us are lucky enough to start it off the right way by going
south over break. The ocean, sunshine and plenty of beer is actually
not a bad way to spend that long awaited break! Well, for those of
us who stayed up north, maybe next year.
This season seems to mark a lot of special occurrences each year:
Dorm Week, Greek Week, May Week, an unforgivable dunk in the
fountain at Thomas Hall, baseball, finals, and even for some, a
degree, namejust a few.
Spring at UA may be overdue at times, but when it finally gets
here, the celebration seems to last and last and last!
Introduction I I
1980 saw more conservative fashion trends on campus, with
the "college prep" look being the most prevalent. Button
down collars on shirts, crew and V-neck sweaters and Top-
sider shoes brought back memories of the movie "Love Story"
set in the Ivy League schools.
Contrary to the faded. raggedjeans that were popular a few
years ago, students turned to the designer styles of Calvin
Klein. Gloria Vanderbilt or Sassoon. In fact, the whole look
this year was more classic and tailored.
Down jackets kept us Cozy during those cold days f

Changes We Sa
With Western Culture lectures and more student-oriented programming, we saw more of Thomas Hall!
We saw many changes on campus this
More students were drawn to Thomas
Hall when Western Cult lectures were moved
there in the Fall. The move was welcomed by
all who remembered being crammed in .ISK
Robert D'Angelo was named director of
Thomas Hall this year and more student pro-
gramming was established.
We anxiously awaited the completion of
the multi-level parking deck near Schrank
Hall. Ample parking has always been a prob-
lem for students.
The changes we saw were not only struc-
tural. We also noticed an increase in land-
scaping on campus, which made UA seem
more like a campus.
Flowers were in full bloom as we came back to UA in the Fall.

Fun and ames
Those years it takes us to get that
diploma would not be quite as memo-
rable if we didn't get time to play.
Years from now. the stories that we'll
be telling our children and grandchil-
dren will probably not be how many
parking tickets we got or how hard we
studied for finals. Instead. only the
good times will persist. Those good
times may be classes with a favorite
professor. finding out who left the
secret message in your mailbox or
being the best frisbee thrower in
ln years to come, when we look back
on all our college life experiences we'll
probably be asking ourselves. "How
did I ever do that?"

Cinajf Luce takes her turn to sell carnations on February 14th.
Your reason and your passion are the
rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul.
If either your sails or your rudder be
broken, you can but toss and drift, or else
be held at a standstill in mid-seas.
For reason, ruling alone, is a force
confining, and passion, unattended, is a flame
that burns to its own distraction.
Therefore let your soul exault your reason
to the heighthof passion, that it may sing,
And let it direct your passion with
reason, that your passion may live through
its own daily resurrection, and like the
phoenix rise above its own ashes.

On February 12. we celebrated Founder's Day.
which was the llOth year for the University. Student
leaders and administrators gathered at Glendale
Cemetery to acknowledge our founding fathers.
There's been a lot happening around here since the
late 1800s. .lust take a glance at the campus. And, this
year was a great year for expansion.
The dedication of Mary Gladwin Hall gave nursing
students a much broader area for learning about
health care. Although Knight Chemical Lab took
quite some time to get just right. it has turned out to
be one of the country's safest and most modern build-
These two contemporary structures are attached by
an enclosed bridge which looks a little like the
entrance to the Wizard of Oz's castle!
After being entirely remodeled. the Union Depot
serves as our Continuing Education Center. This
building now houses Special Programs. the Adult
Resource Center, the Nursing Home Training Center
and the Institute for Civic Education.
And last but definitely not least, Berns Hall was
added to the residence halls as the first co-ed dorm.
However. men and women don't share the same
floor. They are separated with men on one side of the
hall and women on the other.
The new sites have not only made UA a better
place to see. but also to be.

Twinkling Iighrs brought the Christmas feeling I0 campus.
The University was without a lot of snow during the Christ-
mas seasong however, the spirit was still with us. Evergreens
were decorated with lights and the student center was the site
of the University tree! Christmas magic was easily felt as fall
semester came to an end.
These 23 pages draw a close to the introduction, but it is
only the beginning of showing you some of the magic that has
occurred during your stay at UA in 1979-80.
This is the first of three Buchtel Halls, known then as Old BuchteL Constructed in
1871-72, Old Buchtel was destroyed by fire in 1899.

Before a student can transfer to an upper college offering
the degree he or she desires, one must complete certain
required courses in the General College so that he or she will
be able to understand and express ideas effectively. The Gen-
eral College also serves as a base on which to build and
develop a person's intellectual ability. Some of the required
courses of the General College include English composition,
speech, physical education, institutions and the U.S., natural
science and others.
The first general studies program began at the University in
1935, under the direction of the dean of students, Danfred H.
Gardener, who also helped revise the program in the early
1950's. The program was also revised in 1960-61 with a natu-
ral science sequence replacing reasoning and understanding
in science. Also in the early '60's, closed circuit television was
introduced to the campus. In 1972, the General College pro-
gram was again evaluated, and the Senior Seminar was drop-
ped, and MUM was added in 1977. Incoming honors students
of the Honor's Program are also considered a part of the Gen-
eral College until transferring to an upper college.

College of Business
Dr. James W. Dunlap, Dean
In 1953, what was known as the Department of Commerce
in the College of Liberal Arts became the College of Business
Administration. The three academic units of accounting, gen-
eral business and industrial management were established at
that time. Dr. Warren W. Leigh was then named dean of the
new University expansion.
Since then, the program has been accredited by the Ameri-
can Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business.
Also, the curriculum has been revised to include four aca-
demic units: accounting, finance, management and market-
ing. The subject of business has attracted many students to
the departments. Nearly 475 students received B.S. degrees
from the college in 1980.
The college places emphasis on the contribution to store
knowledge and to develop the ability to reason and think. It
also provides each individual student an opportunity to
understand social, political and economic elements which will
relate to the decision-making process.

Mariv hours were put into the creation of these clowns.
The College of Fine and Applied Arts was established
only l3 years ago in February. 1967, with Dr. Ray Sande-
fur serving as its dean.
Although it is still young, the college has accomplished
much. One of the main accomplishments has been to settle
into Guzzetta Hall, where many new facilities serve those
in the arts.
Along with classroom work, students in the arts are eager
to gain practical experience. Thomas Hall, the Experimen-
tal Theatre, WAUP, WRHA, the Experimental Dance
Ensemble, various university publications, a variety of
musical groups, along with working in the community give
the students outlets for their many talents.
Areas of studies in the college are: Art, Home Econom-
ics and Family Ecology. Music. Mass Media-Communica-
tion. Speech Pathology and Audiology. Social Work, and
Theatre Arts and Dance. From these seven areas, 13
degrees may be granted.

The Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine
It takes a special person to pursue such a field as medicine.
There are many long hours involved and very rarely a vaca-
tion. Because of the medical students' dedication, health-care
services in northeastern Ohio continue to improve.
The Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine is
assisted by the state as well as the universities that support it,
which are The University of Akron, Kent State University
and Youngstown State University.
The College of Medicine was established as an institution
of higher learning on November 23, 1973, in Rootstown.
Ohio. The college was established in'an effort to prepare qual-
ified physicians to practice general medicine at the commu-
Acceptance into the program is based on a personal inter-
view as well as academic ability. In June of 1975, 14 students
from The University of Akron entered the initial class at
Rootstown to begin Phase I of the program. The College of
Medicine works in coordination with area hospitals to provide
the use of facilities and clinical instruction.

Wayne General and Technical College
In I972, a new branch of The University of Akron
was founded. The Wayne General and Technical
College is located just outside of Orrville, Ohio. The
branch is comprised of 163 acres of land, which holds
the branch's one building.
It took a ten year effort for Wayne College to come
into existence. The college was started in an effort to
better service surrounding communities, such as
Holmes, Wayne and Medina counties. Orrville was
chosen because of its central location.
In the Wayne campus building there is a bookstore,
library, lounge, recreational area and classrooms.
There are 300 day students and 566 evening students
enrolled for the '79-'80 school year.
The branch offers six technical programs as well as

Bonoff released her first album in 1977, after

the songs for the album. She refers to these seven
years as her "hibernation period." These isolated
years proved successful, for this is when Linda

Since then, Bonoff has recorded her second

ROTC first took command at The University in 1953. The
purpose was to build strong leaders needed for the armed
forces. Throughout the year. the members involved them-
selves in many leadership and community projects.
One of the projects sponsored by ROTC. along with Angel
Flight. was the ninth annual Run-For-Life marathon. The
event started on Friday. November 2, at noon and didn't end
until noon on Sunday. The purpose was to collect donations
for the hemodialysis unit at Akron General Medical Center.
Since its beginning in 1971, the marathon has netted over
514.000, After l.l73 laps around Jackson Field track were

A student reaching ou! to heh: the Blood Drive.
I4 Red Cross volunteers + 542 donors + 480 pints : a
formula for caring.
That's how things added up for the biggest blood drive ever.
On October 23 and 24, the Summit Lounge in the Gardner
Student Center was converted into a center for caring. Over
540 students had wanted to donate bloodg but because some
of the hopeful donors had temperatures or colds, only 480
pints of blood were collected.
The success of the fall Blood Drive was due to the caring
and cooperation of the greeks and the "dormies.', While the
Panhellenic and Interfraternity councils sponsored the event,
it took the help of many other students to make this the most
successful blood drive ever. And, that's a great achievement
considering that the first records of The University of Akron
Blood Drive date back to 1955.

monthly. The purpose of the new paper was stated more sim-
ply by its new editor than that of its predecessor: it Called for
the "forwarding of home talent." and asked all members of

ute to a part of their college.

This was a vast improvement over the very first student
government of 1892. In those days, University President O.
Cone submitted a plan to the executive committee for the
development of a student governmental body. The purpose of
this student body was to maintain order in East Hall, a dormi-
tory for young men. The plan was initiated on a one-year trial
basis. When the year was over, the experiment had failed, and
President Cone proposed that the young men be removed
from East Hall and the student government be disbanded.

September 25, l954, was the beginning of what has now
become a tradition at the University, the Acme-Zip football
game. Former Athletic Director Kenneth "Red" Cochrane
was the man responsible for starting the first Acme-Zip festiv-
ities. This annual event, co-sponsored by the Acme Stores,
Inc., and The University of Akron, began as a promotional
idea to bring more people to the Zip football games. The pro-
motional idea worked as the attendance at the first annual
Acme-Zip football game totaled 23,769, topping the 21,828
fans who attended Zip football games the entire season the
year before. Despite the 12-7 loss to Wittenburg University,
continued community and student enthusiasm has carried the
event to success for over a quarter of a century.

game. This 24-7 victory over Western Illinois was the kind of
season opener that The University of Akron would like to
have every year. Despite a few fumbles, the Zips looked tough
and played tough. Dominating the ball for the better part of
the game, they gave the Leathernecks little time to do much of
Besides delighting the 32,113 fans, this game certainly gave
coach Jim Dennison, and the Zips' football team, as well as
the entire student body, hopes for a winning season.

Whether they are individual or team efforts. they are an
affirmation of the drive and determination of this year's foot-
ball team. By having tasted victory as well as defeat. the Zips
were motivated more to push themselves to a 6-5 season. By
focusing on the season's accomplishments rather than disap-
pointments. this year's men in blue and gold looked pretty

man and tremendous Paul Winters as the University's most
valuable back. After this year's season, the members of this
team will long remember that it is not whether you win or lose,
but how you play the game.

The University of Akron has a lot to be proud of when it
comes to soccer. Even with the disappointment of defeat,
there can be seen an abundance of talent on our team. One
prime example of this talent is Joe Pereira, who was selected
as Most Valuable Player and received the Touch Down Club
Contributing multiple efforts to the 7-7-2 season were sen-
iors, Marc Miller, John Brencick, Conrad Earnest and Benny
Hengle. The booters will have to adjust to this loss of such tal-
ent. But with freshmen like Matt English fZips' high scorerj,
the seasons ahead look bright.

The 1979 volleyball season might be characterized as a new
beginning, with half of the team comprised of first year play-
ers, the girls posted a I7-19 record. The high point of the sea-
son was a seven game winning streak in the middle of the
Zips' most competitive schedule ever.
The most valuable defensive player was junior co-captain
Lisa Gunderson. The Zips look very promising for the years
to come with an outstanding offensive player like Dawn
Glenny, not to mention other magically talented freshmen
such as Julie Nichols, Penny Bala and Pam Lestock.

For this year's cagers. it was simply taking the good with
the bad. The season started out with a great deal of inexperi-
ence, but as the season progressed, the team began to pick up
momentum. By the end of the season. the Zips were a team of
highly skilled athletes.
It is hard to pinpoint any one player who stood above the
others because the team was boiling over with talent. Despite
its record. 110-I-45. the team really displayed a tremendous
amount of talent and skill. The duo of Wendell and Lance
Bates were chosen as the most-valuable players. ln his last
year. Coach Ken Cunningham built a strong team for the new
head coach to work with.

This year's Lady Zips had a very strong season. finishing
with a I5-I3 record. Head Coach Mary Ann Tripodi had a
team she could be proud of, especially with the large number
of freshmen on the team. One freshman who really brought
magic to the team was Casey O'Connor, as she broke six Zip
records. In addition, O'Connor was named the Zips' most-val-
uable player. The talents of this year's women's basketball
team make the future look promising as the members work to
build and strengthen their abilities.

captain Gino Caponi finished the season with a 22-9
record. the best individual record on the team, ln addition,
Caponi was named UA's most valuable wrestler along with
Todd Marshall. Looking at the future, the team feels that

The women's track club moves
closer and closer to becoming a varsity
sport at UA. This year's performance
was one which proved that women's
track deserves to be looked upon as a
team. rather than a club.
The optimistic Barb Lake and the
determined Al Leyerle, worked
together and put forth a great deal of
effort to bring the team to its high level
of competitiveness. In the future. the
team not only hopes to become a var-
sity sport. but it would also like to run
as a cross-country team.

A nother successful jump by A ther Kefves.
Magic was at work on the men's track team as it proved by
its hard work and determination that it had the talent to make
this past season a success. Although it took the entire team to
make wins possible, there were a few athletes whose last-min-
ute finishes made it all work out. Craig Reynolds, Ather Keys
and Bill Terrill were just a few of those outstanding athletes
who, along with Mike Spencer, the most valuable player, put
on the finishing touches.
Coach Al Campbell was more than pleased with the efforts
of the team that posted a 2-l dual meet record. He looks for-
ward to improving his team even more in the seasons to come.
But, the one attribute that worked magic for the track team.
as well as UA's football squad, was the gifted Paul Winters,
who was also named UA's "Athlete of the Yearf, He posted
the team's best marks in both the long and triple jump. Paul
Winters will undoubtedly be one athlete long remembered at
Lady Zips went far beyond proving themselves this past
season, by finishing with an 8-4 record. This past season was
anything but a one-athlete team, as a number of players had a
valuable effect upon the success of the team. Two important
factors were the team's most-valuable players, Kathy Altier
and Diana Cook. Head Coach Joanne Dinie concentrated not
only on building for the upcoming game, but, also for the next
season. Next year, a win for the Lady Zips will be as easy as
saying "game" "set" "match,"

The 1979-80 men's tennis team truly showed that it is not
the size of the team that counts but rather the magic behind
the racket. Coach Dave Bard's main magic came from UA's
most valuable player Cris Wilcox. He posted an individual
record of 20-6, playing in the number one single's position.
Coach Bard looks into the future and foresees more seasons
similar to this past season, as the magic of the years unfold.

Pirates Victorious in '79 World
The 1979 World Series of baseball was played between the Baltimore Ori-
oles and the Pittsburgh Pirates. lt rained fiercely for so long on the sched-
uled opening game of the Series that for the first time in history, a Series'
opener was postponed.
In Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, the Orioles opened the Series with a 4-
5 win over the Pirates only to have the Pirates come back to win the second
The Series was then moved to Pittsburgh and the bad weather followed.
During the third inning of the third game, a heavy downpour forced more
than an hour's delay. When the Series finally resumed, the Orioles won the
game 8-4 as well as winning the fourth game, 9-6.
Through the determination of such players as Willie Stargell, the Pirates
never lost hope. They came back to win the last three games with scores of 7-
l in the fifth game, 4-0 in the sixth game and 4-l in the final game.
Stargell hit the home run that won the world championship for Pittsburgh.
With his calm strategy, the Pirates became only the fourth team in the
Series' 76-year history to gain three straight victories.
The instinct for survival is high
among these refugees. Having over-
come the dangers of their sea voy-
age, and facing the threat of being
rejected by other countries in which
they seek asylum, these people look

they left in Vietnam.

Bo Derek Starts Fashion Trend in U.S.
Some women's hair fashions tend
to be a bit extreme, but this year's
style tops the list.
The latest style. which became
popular with actress Bo Derek in the
movie "l0." is a look which features
hundreds of beaded braids. The
process can cost several hundred
dollars and take up to I0 hours to
complete. Actually, the style is not
new. The process of "cornrowing"
hair originated with African tribes-
women centuries ago.
Now, thousands of American
women are braiding their hair to get
the "Bo look." However, maintain-
ing the hairstyle is a big hassle. To
prevent the braids from unravelling,
a woman can be asked by her hair-
dresser to sleep with a stocking over
her head. Keeping hair clean may
involve soaking the braids in alcohol
or using shampoo with a toothbrush.
Frizzies can be controlled with glue.

RHC and RH PB
The Residence Hall Council and the Residence Hall Pro-
gram Board provide students with both a governmental voice
in dorm affairs and a host of activities throughout the year.
This year, RHC held several forums with the college deans so
that students could learn more about their field of study. It
also worked on its new constitution, held a meeting with Presi-
dent Guzzetta, got a new office located in the Bulger base-
ment, and sponsored several activities.
RHPB also was very active this year. Because of the OA's
and the committee members, along with fine leadership,
RH PB was able to plan successful events such as orientation,
winter weekend, pre-holiday festival, card section, brother-sis-
ter weekend, college street cafes, dorm week, Zipper Maga-
zine, The Dorm News, playboy happy hour and best buddy

It's in the Cards
Those University students seated in section nine of the
Rubber Bowl during football season are more than just avid
football fans e they are part of the UA Card Section e four
hundred members strong and still growing. For every home
football game, dorm students piled on the buses manned with
their cards and computer sheets and headed to the stadium to
cheer on the Zips. Run by RHPB, the group did do over 20
skits. Sayings such as "it I." "Go Zips." "Fight," "AU" and
"Ya-hoo" added a festive color to each game and boosted the
Zips with moral support.

This vear's annual Halloween Dance was held on October
31 in Robertson Dining Hall. lt was a big success in the eyes
of the students and RHPB.
It was obvious that the students went all out in choosing
their costumes. which varied drastically from a deck of cards
to a pack of crayons. Each year at the dance, someone or
some group isbiudged for being the best dressed. as well as
having the most original costume. This vear's winner was a
group of men from the Townhouses dressed as the Dallas
Cowboy cheerleading squad.

Being a Greek is a social experience.
Back in I776, Greek organizations
started becoming a large part of attend-
ing a college. From a diversity of back-
grounds and interests, girls and guys
havejoined to put something more into
getting an education by pledging a
sorority or fraternity.
Friendship is the key to Greek life.
But friendship isn't the only part. Join-
ing a Greek organization offers you an
opportunity to develop leadership by
running for an office and teaches
responsibility and dependability. Each
Greek has an opportunity to reach out
and contribute his or her own personal
potential within a small group, while all
the time learning to cooperate with oth-
ers and accept them for their faults as
well as their virtues.
Joining a fraternity or sorority can
offer you the chance to get involved in
campus, community and chapter activ-
ities. Freedom of thought and actions is
encouraged, both academically and
non-academically. Philanthropy pro-
jects offer a chance to show that you
really care about others, whether you
are bowling to raise money for the
American Cancer Society or simply
guaranteeing that the patients in Chil-
dren's Hospital have a fun Halloween.
Greek life means different things to
different people, but it's a well known
fact that the more you put into your
chapter the more you will get out of it.
Being a part of a fraternity or sorority
is carrying on a tradition of high ideal-
ism and a strong bond of friendship.

I welcome this opportunity to communicate some views
with the 1980 seniors. The College of Business Administration
will continue to work at full capacity. Undergraduate and
graduate applications are increasing at an increasing rate for
Another message I would like to communicate through this
medium is the fact that The University of Akron's College of
Business Administration is one of the leading institutions of
its kind in the U.S.A. Therefore. the next decade could be the
most exciting one in the history of the College. Our objective
is to equip our graduates to compete better in a world econ-
omy scrambling for alternative energy sources and in search
of monetary stability. We want our graduates to be equipped
to identify global trends and to interpret the effects on their
own specific field of operation. Those who will succeed must
havejob entry in top quality firms to be among the new breed
of persons in top-management positions. The recruitment.
advancement. and development of our graduates is the Col-
lege's "acid-test." Our graduates must be capable of meeting
these challenges and profiting by them.
Therefore, the College's greatest tasks in the 80s will be to
equip those who have placed themselves worthy of admission
to the College with job entry, a marketable degree and a
growth potential education. To accomplish this, we are pres-
ently re-evaluating all of our established graduate programs
and we will complete a resurvey of all undergraduate pro-
grams next year.
Attracting and retaining the best faculty available from
throughout the country is another interrelated objective. A
top-quality faculty will enable the College of Business Admin-
istration to become a resource upon which both local and
national firms can rely for their first-choice new employees,
management training programs and research.
As the Dean. l wish to express enthusiasm and confidence
in not only maintaining the high standards of the College of
Business Administration but in raising them.

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Community and
Technical College, I am pleased to be able to extend sin-
cere congratulations and best wishes to the 1980 graduates
of our college. It has been a privilege to have you with us
and our desire has been to make your educational experi-
ence meaningful, beneficial and enjoyable.
You are leaving at a time characterized by uncertainty
and change. During the American Revolution, Thomas
Paine wrote, "These are the times that try men's souls."
Although in different ways, his words are as appropriate
today as they were then. It seems society is confronted with
problems at every turn.
From childhood, we have been exposed to the proverbial
three R's of learning: reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic.
if T i
. ' Q 'ig
5 Q W.,
' l l,
Calculating on a survqving project.
Through reading, there is access to the wealth of man's knowl-
edge and thinking as recorded over the centuries. Through writ-
ing, we convey our thoughts and ideas for consideration and dia-
logue with others. Arithmetic provides a precision and logic for
computation with figures. I would suggest that 'rithmetic can
have a broader meaning which transcends the solution of mathe-
matical problems. In an enlightened society, there are basic axi-
oms of living and ideas that must make sense in the way that
"two and two equals four."
We hope we have added something of the three R's that will
enable you to continue to learn, expand your horizons and con-
tribute to enlightening our society as we look to the future.

Congratulations are certainly in order to those of you
who have just completed your engineering education.
Education is one of the most difficult and demanding
subject areas in the University. Many times in these past
years. you have felt this yourself. But, you have reached
a goal now. and it is time to consider putting your for-
mal education into practice.
Engineering is a field which changes daily. Many of
the products and techniques that are in use today were
not even thought about five or ten years ago. This means
that in order to be a successful practitioner of engineer-
ing you will have to keep up-to-date. Maintain an inter-
est in your college. Keep in contact with your professors.
When you visit the citv of Akron, stop in and talk to
your professors. Let them know what could be improved
and where the college can do a betterjob. Later. as your
career accelerates and your financial situation improves.

keep in mind that the college and the University depend 1
considerable extent on generous alumni.
In closing, I want to wish you a most rewarding career 1

Il 's all in the chemistry, nurses.
Sue says, "There's no bones about it."
Congratulations on your achievements. You have graduated
from The University of Akron College of Nursing at a most cru-
cial time in the history of nursing. The l980's will see nursing sur-
vive as a profession or remain a vocation.
The challenge I put before you. as baccalaureate graduates. is
to utilize all of the communication skills, critical thinking skills
and manipulative skills you have gained in your nursing educa-
tion to prove to the health-care industry and the public that a
level of education is necessary to provide holistic care.
Nursing is a separate and distinct discipline and can be prac-
ticed as an independent or in colleague relationships with other
health-care disciplines. Nursing is a nurturing-caring relationship
to facilitate individuals, families and communities in achieving
and maintaining wellness.
Together, we have shared four years: we have invested much in
each other. And because I care about what happens to you as an
individual. I wish you well. I wish you success in nursing, happi-
ness in your personal and professional life. and most of all a quest
for continued leaming. . .And one more thing . . . I Love You."
