It seems to be so hurried. People walk across campus and don ' t even look at each other. I have lived here so long and I ' m not even used to it. ' -Jane Summerville, berkeley resident LIFE SECTON 17 1th rhe campus tradition of acti ' ism and trcc- spirited attitude, how does the city of Berkeley cope with the influence of the University? UC Berkeley is self-sufficient and does not pay cit ' taxes, a situation that creates tension between the residents and uni ' eisit) ' affiliates. Current Berkeley residents stated both positive and negative aspects of sharing the cit) ' with the University. " I appreciate all of the commerce and action the University brings, but a t the same time don ' t like the noise and congestion it encourages, said jane Summerville, a long time resident of Berkeley. " I like how motivated the students are with their work, and wonder w h.u a stressful place it must be. It seems to be so hurried, people walk across campus and don ' t even look at each other 1 ha ' e lived here so long and I ' m not e ' en u.sed to it, ' added Summerville. When asked how in ' olved he was with campus actn ' ities, Alex Ortega, a Berkeley resident of five years, said, " I go to the games sometimes, bur other than that I don t make it to the campus much. Its hard to be invoK-cd with the school and keep up at my new job. Nonetheless, it s a great school with great people. Ortega claims other residents also appreciate the campus. " We know that without all that the Public Relations The relationship between the city of Berkeley and the University created a unique learning environment campus contributes to Berkeley, we would be lost. It adds excitement to the city, Ortega said. Students share similar viewpoints on the impor- tance of the campus to the well-being of the cit ' of Berkele) ' . When asked about the relations between the campus and the cit) ' . Charlene Choi, a first-year student at Berkele} ' , stated an overwhelmingly positn ' e response. " There is a lot of activity between the cit} ' and the campus. I have noticed that there is a tremendous amount of communit) ' service, including a program I am now in ' ol ' ed with where Berkele) ' High school students are taken to Cal and " shadow ' the lite of a student for a day. The relationship seems really positive to me, " Choi said. If the campus did not exist, Choi stated, " There wouldn ' t be a s much business in town. The BART probably wouldnt even come herel Really, UC Berkeley helps to sustain economic growth in the area: without the campus, it would be a dead town. Spring admission student Nora Liao had similar opinions v ' hen asked how the campus added to the atmosphere. The campus definitely adds to Berke- ley.

" In 1969, after four weeks of construction. People ' s Park was created. The lot became an attraction for transients and drug dealers, prompting the University to decide to turn it into a soccer field and underground parking lot. This set the stage for a protest against these actions which is now referred to as " Bloody Thursday. " Enraged protesters camped out on the park, trying various methods to save it, including having it blessed and sanctified. These efforts were to no avail, and a fence was built around the site on May 15, 1969. Protesters quickly tore it down, and a few hours later, protesters led by then ASUC President-elect Dan Seigel started a march that began at Sproul Plaza and terminated at People ' s Park. Over 60 people were injured, one blinded, and one person, 25-year-old UC Berkeley student James Rector, was killed. This sparked more rage, and there was another protest in memorial to the student, consisting of 3,000 people who marched down to Oxford and Center Streets. A patron makes herself comfortable in the park ' s lush setting. In 1971, after being prompted by The Daily Catifor- nianXo hold a " party " in second-year commemoration of the park, the protesters started another riot. In May of 1972, under the leadership of Michael Delacour known as the " father of the park, " Vietnam protesters fled to People ' s Park to voice their opinions. Disapprov- ers tore down the parking lot, and police officers were witnessed trying to beat them into submission. Berkeley City Council member Dona Spring, a student at UC Berkeley in 1972, stated that " if you were in the protest, you were beaten. I was one of the people they hit with a billy-dub. " In 1991, the University expressed its wishes to build volleyball courts on the premises. At this time the park supporters formed the " People ' s Park Defense Union, " a group of activists committed to defending the park. When construction of the courts commem.ed on July 31, 1991. 100 protesters showed up. They chased out the construction workers and stormed Telegraph, pillaging shops and setting fires in the streets. After this occurrence, guards were set to watch the park. Today the park is co-operated by the city of Berkeley and the University, and is a place open to both students and residents. The park is not only a Berkeley landmark but a cultural icon. Check out the People ' s Park Web Site at http: -hi_there tmline.html Source: Tix Daily Ca ijim an. Much 17-19. 1997. TY OF BERKELEY 19 t nii ht, the Berkele) ' campus can be a formidable place. To provide a safer night environment, the University offers several campus safet) ' services such as the night safety shuttle, emergency phones, and campus police. The latter not only provides a walk escort .service, but its communit} ' service officers (CSOs) patrol the University, assist with campus events, and teach special De-Cal courses. The CSO Program s mi.ssion is to provide outreach to the campus communit} ' while helping to prevent crime on the campus. Ihe CSOs ' presence on campus has a ni,i|or role in lielping to deter attacks and cnmc at night and m the past iew years, the overall campus crime rates haw either remained steady or lowered. One of the primary ways the CSOs deter crime is their highly ' isible presence. In their tan uniforms, officers are easily recognized and tluycanbeseen EsCOrting StudetltS, performing a number of duties. The major shifts include a stadium area p,)trol, graveyard duty to patrol all of the dorms, crime watch to check windows and doors and give directions, and an escort service. tfceNicrK Although usually not armed with much but their wits, knowledge, a walkie-talkie, and the optional mace, their uniformed presence provides students and staff with a of safety. A CSO officer may not always look like much of a bodyguard, but they are well trained to handle a -arietv of situations. (..SCXs know police codes, how to observ ' c surround- ings, take down detailed descriptions, and zhcy are very familiar with the campus geography, streets, and boundaries. In diis kind of |ob, street smarts are a necessity for keeping themselves and others safe at night. Abo e all. the - do not try to be heroes. In a single night a CSC " ) can escort a multitude ol people, from individuals to small groups and from the sober to the drunk. Mcist calls happen around midterms and finals, on weekends, and after big crimes. In addition to the walk service, aiding in emergencies, CSOs CSOs also patrol the campus and respond to crimes and strange events. Among these situations last year was the flooding of Haas Business School when a pipe burst and the neu ' school was flooded by a foot of water. CSOs responded to the emergenc) ' b) ' directing traffic while wading in a foot of cold water in the chilly Februarv ' night air.

Upon coming to Cal, students are familiarized with the safety precautions of locking their possessions, walking in groups, and being aware of their surroundings. Among the various crimes students are confronted with, theft remains the majoraffliction, followed byalco- hol and drug violations. While more serious crimes, such as assault, rape, and murder are rarely reported on the Berkeley campus, students recog- nize the realities of do their part to ensure campus safety ' ' ° ' ' " " ' " " " ' IT in the urban envi- ... ronment. students through uindows, naked people runnini;tlirouv:h the streets of fraternit) ' row while the city had a blackout, and an ncident where a student got pelted b) ' a large -e ietable and v ' as ient to the emergency room. Typicall) ' , CSOs may be seen ' Tierely walking students or strolling the campus on patrol, but heir li -es are much more e.vciting than the average Berkeley itudent realizes. If students are walking home late at night and cannot call for an escort, CSOs advise them to try to walk with someone else, be aware of their surroundings at all times, x ' - alk with conhdence. walk m well- lit areas, trust their instinct.s. and if there are suspicious people, cross the street and walk on the other side. Although people may know these techniques, surprisingly many people still take unnecessary risks. In the end if something happens, it ' s not worth it. Students should not be naive and belie e that crimes will not happen to them, l: cn though CSOs are well iJi u ' flB trained ro perform m such an environment, they too get scared. Pam Swan, a twent ' -year old psycholog) ' major and CSO for over a year, jokes that she started The University of California Police Department (UCPD), located in Sproul Hall, is the primary law en- forcement agency on campus and serves the students and residents by preventing, patrolling, and investi- gating crimes that occur on campus and associated University properties. The UCPD works closely with the Ber- keley Police Department and is staffed by 82 officers, 45 full-time non-sworn personneland 50 student employees. Under the Student Right to Know Act, passed in 1990, The UCPD is required to disclose all reported instances of crime on the campus.

After die first month of training, if the worker has a preference, then the manager c. n assign that worker a specific task. According to Kim, most of the workers are foil-time staffers, and 22 After loading up on cayaiu: itiuknts prepare to study at Cafe MHano.

This extra caffeine helps some stu- dents stay awake to cram for midterms, while other people simply enjoy the taste and enjoy socializing over a steaming hot cup of coffee. Whatever the rea- son, coffee is now a more integral part of many stu- dents ' lives now as compared to when they were in high school. Ajit Thomas never drank coffee in high school, but now he drinks 2-3 cups a day. " 1 neverfeltthe need to drink coffee in high school. 1 just drank soda, " admits Thomas, a sophomore majoring in Political Science. " Plus, 1 didn ' t like the taste back then, before 1 got used to it, " said Thomas. Neither did Chengboey Lau, who hated coffee vhen she went to high school. " 1 hated it. It smelled bad, " said Lau, a sophomore. Lau now drinks around 3 cups a week, or more, depending on how heavy her work load is that week. " I still don ' t like the smell, and I don ' t drink it socially. 1 drink it now because the caffeine keeps me awake and more alert. I ' m used to the taste now, but 1 don ' t particularly love it, " Lau said. The caffeine doesn ' t keep everyone awake, how- ever. " Coffee puts me to sleep. It ' s nice and warm and toasty and it functions like milk. My dad has the same problem, " Thomas said. Thomas insists that coffee is a big part of college life. " A lot of my friends drink coffee, " said Thomas. " It ' s a social thing, and 1 just like the taste. I ' ll get some on my own, but more often than not, I ' ll just see a friend and we ' ll go get some coffee, " Thomas said. Lau disagrees. " The cafe is a big social thing in college, but not necessarily coffee itself, " said Lau, who enjoys studying in a cafe, whether she buys a coffee or not. " It ' s a more relaxed atmosphere than the library. You don ' t have to be in a totally isolated environment to study. I go there even if I ' m not in the mood for coffee, " Lau said. Are students who drink a lot of coffee worried about getting ad- dicted? " No, I ' m not really worried about it. Sometimes I go without it for weeksand 1 don ' t get withdrawal symp toms or anything, " said Thomas. Both Thomas and Lau agree that the best cafe is Cafe Strada, for its Bianca Mo- cha or Caramel Machiatto. -Stephanie Sato the people seen our in the dining hall are mostly students, some in high school, hut mostly students at Cal. The starting wage is $6.22 hour. " It you work there longer, you get a 20 cent raise, " Kim said. Kim is well aware of the dining commons ' bad reputation amont; students. He thinks that the complaints are ungrounded. " People say that the food is really terrible, but when you think about it. it ' s healthier than almost any other place. IfVou make your own food. you ' re probably not going to have the lu.xuiy of having a salad bar, and ajuice bar, and a milk bar, and all the vanet}-. I think it ' s really good, you have a lot of choices, " Kim added. And as for leftovers, " They only use lefto ' ers if they can endure for more than a da - or too, " Kim explained. " Basically we have to throw everything that is leftover from the meal at the end of the shift. But sometimes we do keep it because itsjust a big waste, " Kim said. -By Stephanie Sato TIk crowded patto at Cafe Strada was a popular spot for students to socialize and get their dose oj caffeine. 23 Jimiiinracct While students attempt to individualize their dorm room and make their home away from home more aesthetically pleasing, some things become standard...

The greatest obstacle to this move is actually finding an apartment. With a large demand for apartments around campus, and scarce numbers of avail- able rentals, it is extremely difficult to find the ideal living space: one at reasonable rent and close proximity to campus, as well as aesthetically pleasing. Moststudentsbegin their apartment hunt at the Com- munity Housing Office which is affiliated with University Housing and Dining. The office serves students and fac- ulty by posting apartment listings. While the service is free, the competition for these apartments is fierce, as many students and faculty alike seek out the same list- ings. Students often look to outside rental services such as Homefinders or Rental Solutions to ease the frustrations of apartment hunting. For $65, Homefinders provides daily listings of apartments for rent, and for a fee equal to half of the first month ' s rent, Rental Solutions handles the entire process of searching and obtaining an apartment for their clients. Even when a suitable apartment has been found, the luxuries of living on one ' s own still has its costs. No longer do students have their mothers to clean their bedrooms and bathrooms, or the dining commons to cook their meals and clean the dishes. In addition to the added chores of housekeeping are the added utility expenses for phone, water and electricity. Paying the bills each month reminds students that along with the independence of living in an apartment, comes responsibility. Roommates share an apartment, living expenses and study ttme. A- ' y. m V As part 0 hii required jive hours oj housekeepin( work, a co-op resident cleans the kitchen. To enjoy the low cost of livini in a co-op, residents participated in housekeeping chores. Students cook themselves dinner in their apartment kitcheri. Living outside the dorms meant that students had the luxury ofhomecooked meals. Operative Effort Living together isn ' t always easy V Vith o ' er 1200 members, the Universit) ' Students ' Cooperatn ' e Association (USCA) IS the largest student housing co-op in North America. The USCA stresses democracy and cooperation through member ownership and operation. Student ownership IS exercised with the House Council, consist- ing ot either the entire house or apartment population or elected council members. Each house and apartment council discusses group ,md indn ' idual members ' concerns and elects vice managers to oversee aspects of co-op living. House members invest five hours weekly m either housekeeping, cooking, maintenance, clerical work, or sorting mail, while apartment uork shift requirements depend on the residents ' decisions, and range trom two to twelve hours per semester. The semester cost tor room and meals is only $ 1764 tor houses, and the semester cost tor room at apartments ranges trom $ 1048 to $2097, depending on location, apartment size, and number ot occupants. Amane Habib, a first semester Le Chateau resident, initially saw the co-ops as " loud and dirt)-. ' Habib added, " Some people take drugs to too much ot an extreme. Vet Marisa Vee telt the problem was overly exaggerated. " I hear more about the drug problem trom the people who don ' t live here, " Yee said. First-year co-op member Summer Breault recognized that visual aspects ot Le Chateau weren ' t ideal. " It looks like a crack house or the inside of the men ' s bathroom, " Breault commented. Despite the poor housekeeping conditions and drug problems, Breault emphasized that Le Chateau residents " are some ot the nicest people Ive ever met m my lite-they ' re so welcoming, and sodu ' erse. Having 50 people with varied socioeco- nomic, cultural, religious backgrounds can spark conflict, but senior joe Madden has not witnessed any conflicts in his sta ' at Andres Castro Arms. And it problems do arise, Madden believes that " m a house this size, even it you did have a conflict with someone. I don ' t think it would cause day-to-day problems.

U A L I T Y 29 L A student confronts his h omose xuality Comin i, .he college years are an imporrnnt l.mdniark tor many students. For Alvin Chen, it was time to hce the fact that he was gay. Ever since elementary school. Chen knew he v as gay. " B) ' the fourth or fifth grade. 1 knew that I liked guys and not girls, " acknowledges Chen. " I didn ' t know how badly people would react specifically to it but I knew enough that 1 didn t go around telling people, Chen said. Chen refused to think much about it or take it seriously. " At that time, I didn ' t think I knew of it as a permanent characteris- tic that was important to my character. When you ' re a little kid in elementary school, you think. I ' m going to be a doctor when I row up or 1 m going to run really fast or be really tall ' — you don ' t know who you are at the time, " Chen added. But by middle school, Chen was certain that being gzy was a permanent characteristic. Instead of denying it like other people sometimes do, Chen simply accepted it. " There ' s no trying to like a girl and not a guy, ' " Chen said. During his adolescent years, Chen began to realize how much of a big deal scvuality was to people. " I realized more h ow different being gay really is. Adolescents get really sensitive about their sexuality since it ' s just developing then, so you had ro be very certain to show how macho you were if you were a guy because people are starting to talk about you, and having sex, and it ' s very important to show just how heterosexual you are, said Chen. " Eventually I did resolve my idea that I would never tell anyone, I wouldn ' t deal with it. 1 was just going to live and not be involved with anyone, " he admits. But soon Chen was ready to start dealing with his homosexuality ' . He told one of his closest friends from liigh .school, just before he went off to college. " It was scary, but the reaction was a very positive one. EIc and some of my friends had already known and talked ,ibout it, " Chen said, " just being able to filial!) ' share that important, major factor in your life to someone else — that was very relieving. It motivates you to be more open, to let yourself start off on a good footing. 30 Students from the Queer Resource Center make d)emselves visible on Cal Day.

" He started telling people he met and felt comfort- able with. He also began to go to organizations, like Cal B Gay and G.L.O.B.E. (Gays, Lesbians, or Bisexuals Ever) ' where), a residence hall group. " It was to get a handle on what it meant to be gay, to meet other people who were going through the same thintjs or who had gone through the same things I was oing through at the time, " Chen said. Chen took another step by telling his parents. He was afraid that his parents, who were traditional Chinese, would throw him out ot the house when they found out. Just in case, he went through all his finances to see i he had enough money to support himself " I hated thinking, ' How can I make certain I can still survive, not only it they passively reject me but actively try to hurt me as much as rhey can ' " said Chen. " It ' s not a nice way to think about your family, but I thought about the possibilities, " he said. What exactly did he say to his parents? " They were getting ready to go to bed, and I went into their bedroom and told them that I had somethini important to tell them. It became very hard to say it, which got m ' mother worried. FinalK ' , I just said. ' I ' m gay. ' First it was shock, then disbelief and they told me that I was confused and tired and tojust go to sleep, " Chen said. Today, Chen ' s father is still having a difficult time accepting it. Now he can talk about the subject, which was a milestone lor him. " For the people themselves, it takes many years to come to terms with it. You can ' t expect your parents to suddenly understand something and accept some- thing that they have only had second-hand experience on, Chen said. But Chen ' s mother was already trying to come to terms with it the very night after he had told her. " My mother has grown more accepting. Unlike a lot ol other parents, she ' s resigned to the fact that that ' s how I am, and it can ' t be changed. It tells you how much your parents love you and care about you, " Chen said. " There is a big difference between tolerance and acceptance. You can always hate something but tolerate it, but to actually accept it is to see it as something that ' s a part of your life, part of your world, " Chen said. " People can tolerate others simply because of anti-discrimmation lav ' s, but there ' s no change of heart. Acceptance is when you realize that people are human, ]ust like you, " he explained. — Stephanie Sato UppOrt groups for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender(LGBT) students Boalt Hall Lesbian and Gay Caucus- queer students at Boalt Law Scfiool CAL B GAY- queer Asians and Pacific Islanders FLUID- bisexual rap group for bisexuals and friends GLOBAL- queer and questioning on campus GLOBE- support and social group for queer and question- ing students living in tfie Residence Halls GLOW- gays and lesbians of Wurster (School of Environ- mental Design) La Familia- queer and questioning Raza Lavender Grads- LGBT graduate professional students LeGaSee-LGBT staff and friends at UCB Q@Haas- queer students of Haas Business School Q Grads of Color- queer graduate professional students of Color Qhere- group promoting queer visibility on campus Queer Resource Center- student-run office that serves as central repository and provides internships Quengr- queer engineering and physical science graduate students Sistah Sistah- queer women of color Twice Blessed- gay lesbian bisexual questioning jews and their friends UCGALA- LGBT Cal Alumni Association Women ' s Rap Group- discussion group for lesbians and bisexual women HOMOSEXUALITY 31 A After ii loii day of classes. a studeut umvinds by taldng a hit from a water pipe.

Drug Wars Voters choose to legal- ize MEDICAL MARJUANA Since 1937, marijuana was listed as a " schedule I " drug, which meant that it had no apparent medical value, and could be easily abused. But in the 1997 November election, 56% of California voters passed Proposition 215, legalizing marijuana for medical use. These results brought out many debates and promoted more research to find out what marijuana really does, and if its benefits outweigh its potential negatives. The idea was introduced by George Soros, who was convinced that marijuana has medical benefits. It has been said to treat nausea and vomiting which come with cancer patients on chemotherapy, restore appetite and stall severe weight loss associated with AIDS patients, and treat glaucoma, which is the leading cause of blindness. Proposition 215 attracted voters because of their compassion for people afflicted with cancer, AIDS, and other diseases which are increasingly claiming more lives. Although Proposition 215 and the similar Proposition 200 in Arizona passed, the federal government has some reservations about the case. The law allows patients to use pot for practically any complaint- including migraine headaches. It also allows patients of any age to use the drug, which stirs up the fear of children abusing the drug, leading them to harder sub- stances, such as heroin and cocaine. The Clinton Administration opposes Proposi- tion 215 and even threatens to penalize doctors who prescribe the drug. If doctors treat their patients with marijuana, they jeopardize their right to write prescrip- tions and may not be reimbursed for their Medicare and Medicaid patients. The result of the debate is more research. It is undecided whether or not marijuana is better than current therapies to treat the same conditions. There is also concern that the possible benefits of using marijuana may not be attained free of the intoxicating effects of smoking it. Some people are upset, saying that marijuana should be freely accessible right away, and that in the meantime many patients are suffering in pain. Others agree that more tests need to be done before anything is decided-not enough is known about marijuana to actually say that it is so useful, but there is a potential that it may be. -Stephanie Sato BODY PARTS Numerous parts of the body can sustain a piercing.

While there was convenient access to a computer terminal, it wasn ' t always as easy to link onto the Internet BIK users more often than not were greeted with busy signals when dialing into the University system. To cope with the high volume of users and insufficient capacity of the campus network, students wishing to increase their on-line opportunities subscribed to commercial services, such as America Online. America Online, the largest Internet provider serving 8 million members, offered a highly competitive price of $19-95 for unlim- ited use in October of 1996. By December. America Online systems were overloaded with eager netsurfers. Impatient and annoyed, subscribers threatened the Internet provider with legal cases charging false advertising. To avoid legal battles in states across the nation. America Online began offering subscribers rebates up to $39.90 for unavailable access. The company also cancelled advertising the special rate and is spending $350 million to add 150.00 modems to their system. The traffic jams on both the University and America Online systems signify the Internet as a popular and essential means of communicating and gathering information. For students, the need to access the Internet quickly and efficiently, if not met inside the University, must be satisfied by outside commercial services. But even the largest Internet provider couldn ' t satiate the public ' s appetite for information.

Welcome to the University ot California at Berkely website. Students, faculty, and curious minds can wander though the campus and tap into its resources. Approximately 20,000 people access the information on the UC Berkeley website a day. Sex-ent} ' percent of these people are h ' om college campuses worldwide, including the 56% from the Berkeley campus. Most of the users are Berkeley students who find the website a resource of services and information. The UC Berkeley home page is just the beginning ot the nersurter s ad ' enture. From this page, a user can access general information about the Uni ersit ' and the latest campus news and events, browse by department, and receive specific information pertaining to students or facult) ' . The home page links users to the UC Berkeley Libraries, which includes Doe (Main) and Moftitt Libraries and 20 branch libraries as well as 1 3 affiliated libraries that ser ' e the special interests of the facult) ' and staff. In addition to having access to the 8 million s ' olumes in the Library, u.sers can access the wealth of the Bancroh Library collection.

Calling and leaving messages on an answering machine is considered a communication lag, and students prefer to use pagers because they are portable. To keep up with school, work, and social lives, students need to be available at all times. Sophomore Weber Shih, who first bought a pager when he was sixteen for work purposes, explains his motivations for using a pager " It ' s easier to get a hold of someone, instead of playing phone tag. And with leaving messages on the answering machine, it ' s just too slow, " Getting a head start m the job market, a student enjoys the convenience of a cellular phone to call potential employers. insists Shih, who gets around four pages a day, and sometimes as much as ten. " And being out all day, you don ' t feel like you have to keep checking your messages, " he adds. Randolph Wang, a freshmen ESU (engineering science undeclared) major, also had a pager at age l6, but for different reasons than Shih. " I had already wanted one so that my friends could keep track of me, but my parents also wanted me to have one so that they would always know where I was, " Wang explains. " If I wasn ' t home when I said I would be, they could just page me. We had an understanding that I ' d call them back right away. " Both Shih and Wang have the same pager model, the Ultra Express Fix, which is popular because " it doesn ' t look flash or gaudy, " Wang explains. The model is compact and simple with only a few buttons and can easily fit into your pocket or be clipped onto your belt with a chain. Wang also has voice mail and a tri-state option, so that anyone in California, Nevada, and Arizona can contact him. He pays a $60 per year for everything. But not everybody finds the need to have a pager. " I ' d feel like I had no privacy, " says Chengboey Lau, a sophomore majoring in chemical engineering. " I ' d feel obligated to return every call as soon as possible, whereas with an answering machine, people could just leave a message and I ' d call back when I was available, " says Lau. Lau also dislikes it when a pager is not set on a vibrating mode and goes off during inappropriate times, like during class. " It ' s very disruptive when other people hear it and people don ' t turn it off right away in class. It causes a lot of distraction, especially during midterms, " says Lau. Freshman Matt Price agrees. " It ' s very disruptive, which is why my high school banned pagers, along with cellular phones. If they were found, they were confiscated, " Price says. Price never felt the need to get a pager, saying that " I ' d never really need to use it. My parents know where I am, and I don ' t think paying so much money for it is worth it. " There are also ways of letting people know who is paging you. Many people ask their friends to not only type in the return number, but to also punch in [ ] which stands for a space, and their birth date, like [618] (June 18) to let them know who is calling them. Others even leave more elaborate messages. " There are different systems of using numbers to stand for letters of the alphabet, " states Wang. " My friend ' s initials are B.S. so he punches in [85] because ' B ' and [8], and ' S ' and [5] look similar. " For letters like ' n ' , things get slightly more complicated. Wang uses ' 17 ' to stand for ' n, ' saying that it looks close visually. " You usually try to type in something simple that can be easily figured out, " Wang says. -Stephanie Sato COMMUNICATIONS 45 STRIKE .- i fT »• •, ■ ¥ PROP2Q9-YEAR I PEPPEJl SPRAY MOE ' TIEN R:ESIG ' 46 Dwinelle Hall undergoes remodeling to add more classrooms and ojjices to the existing structure.

The first strike this j ' ear was a three-day strike from No -ember 20-22. which was also the tirst-ever s ' stem-wide coordinated strike. UCLA and UC San Diego graduate student instructors also went on strike at the same time. In order tor the AGSE to have collective bargaining rights, the GSls must be considered employees ot the Uni ersity rather than students. But according to a 1992 state ruling, the GSIs were considered students, with their |obs as part ot their education. " GSIs do provide a valuable service, but this is an educational opportunit) ' provided to them, said Debra Harrington, a campus spokesperson. " Collective bargaining places a pure employment relationship on what is a combination ot service provision and educational opportunit}-. " ' Luke Restonck. a GSl in material science and minerals engineering who was not an AGSE member, said that although it sometimes teels like ajob, teaching is an important and usetul skill to learn. " " Learning to pass knowledge on is part ot education. " ' said Restonck. " " ' ou cant learn it well unless you can explain it to others. " Some GSIs disagreed. " I consider myself an employee and consider my work ajob, ' " said AGSE member Catherine Hollis, a GSI in English. " As a science GSI, I could potentially be doing a )ob that has to do with my dissertation. But teaching is not necessarily turthering my dissertation. There was more support fro m th e huma nrncs and social science departments tor the strike than trom the science and engineering departments. This was because the science and engineering departments get more outside fianding, from companies like the National Science Foundation and the National Institute ot Health. i not tair to sttidents because it makes tor ind means cutting; down time with Humanities and soi lal sciences suffer from increasing class size.

" " So the AGSE went on strike again in the spring semester, trom April 30-May 2. 1 " he center ot activity was at the Telegraph Avenue-Bancroft Wa intersection, where GSIs passed out fliers, collected signatun s for a petition they wanted to send to Chancellor Tien, and tl e)- asked people to stay oft the campus to show their support.

" According to some regents, Tien resigned because oi disappointment with the UC Regents ' 1995 decision to remove race, ethnicity, and gender as a consideration for admission was a disappointment. Although Tien admitted that he had considered resignation after the decision to cease affirmative action was made, he said that this played no part in announcing his decision to resign in October 1996. Tien had announced his resignation early, so that there would be plenty of time to find a replacement. One ot Tien ' s more marked accomplishments during his tenure was his ability to ftindraise. Taking his post at a time when state fijnding decreased and the financial situation v ' as gloom)-, Tien set to fijndraising. ' While state fijnding dropped more than 20 percent during his tenure, student registration fees more than doubled, and 435 senior faculty members left the school due to early retirement programs, Tien helped raise $780 million while he was chanceltefTinciuding $15 million dunngTmp toTaiwan m October-which was the largest single international donation in Tien LEAVES C His greatest contribution was creating a campus community full oi individuals connected as one. the L ' nn-ersity ' slhistory.

In compliance with the policies adopted in July 1995 by the UC Regents, the L ' ni ' ersit ' will e ' aluate applicants under a set ot guidelines that remox ' es the use ot race, religion, and ethnicity trom admission criteria. Concerned that these limitations v -ould prohibit the maintenance ot a diverse student body, UC Berkeley faculty ' and administrators established a system ot applicant evaluation that allows the University to admit students trom a ariety ot backgrounds. The Admissions Office plans to implement a more comprehensive review ot the 25,000 to 30,000 applications the} ' recei ' e each No ' ember, as they determine academic achie ' ement within the context ot the opportunities afitorded to each individual. In past years, the Admissions Office accounted tor test scores, grades, extracurricular actn ' ities. and essays in borderline admission cases. Fift) ' percent ot applicants were iccepted onxhe basTSijt Tesrscores and grades only, vvhile fh " other 50 percent were recognized tor achievement in nonacademic areas in addition to scholastic success. In future admissions processes, halt of the students will continue to be accepted solely based on their academic success, but changes will be made in how the other 50 percent are e ' aluated. According to associate vice chancellor for admissions and enrollment Patrick S. Hayashi, " We have mac4e these changes in part because ot the increasing competition for admission to UC Berkeley. With almost half ot our appli- cant pool with a 4.0 or higher grade point average, we needed to move away trom simple formulas and ti.ved weights to ?mic achievement. One way that the I Iniversity plans to better distinguish student academic achii ' ement is to consider personal ips or unusual circumstances and the ways in which the applicant responded to those challenges will be taken into accoqint. In addition, evidence of intellec- tual or creative achievehient and personal qualities such as motivation, tenacit) ' , ai id concern tor others will become admission factors. What we would be looking for is to recognize cxtraordinar . sustained achie ement in any field said Hayashi. of intellectual endeavo ich The 50 percent ot ; tudents not admitted b) ' academic be evaluated by their likely contribu- acnievement alone wi ale Th le purpose purp ' ofth ipi The soaring number o register the largest fres tion to the intellectual ; ind cultural vitalit) ' of the campus. ad ew admission policies is to find compromise between the terniination of race-based admis- ilit) ' to maintain a fair evaluation a well-rounded and successful sion policies and the at i process that will admit ; treshman class.

The admission pro :ess is one of the most competitue in the country tor a publu institution ot this size. The accep- tance rate at the Unive -sity ot Michigan, Ann Arbor, was 68 percent, while acceptai ce at UCLA was 42 percent.

And as surely as this issue is one ot the annual best- sellers, the ranking tails the test by man - students and college administrators, andcriticism about its methodsandiniplk.uions comes From campuses across the country. In 1990, UC Berkeley was ranked 1 5thamong229national universities in the US, 16th in 1991 and 1992, 19th in 1993. 23rd in 1994, 26th in 1995, and 27th in last year ' s survey. The No. 1 position in the surwy was held by . c L ' niversity. tollowed by Princeton and Harvard, who liad held the top spot tor the pre ' ious three ) ' ears. Ma|or tactors responsible lor Cal s low rankinij in 1996 are a low 79 percent graduation r.uc (Harvard graduates 97 percent), and the tact that only 1 I percent ot Alumni gi e back to their alma mater, as opposed to 45 percent ot Vale alumni.

Chancellor Clianc; 1 len has called them " not scientitic. .md reterrint; to the di ersit ' oi the student bod ' , he has said that " no other institution can otter the education as Cal. And e en though the business school s undergraduate program was ranked No. 2, its director, Dr. Da id Robinson, has rcterrcd to the rankings as a " beauty contest. Last year, the ASUC Senate oted to approve a resolution criticizing the rankings and urgingstudentsand administrators to write letters to U.S. Nfii ' s demanding to change their criteria. 1 he main criticism has been aimed at the criteria picked by the magazine, and that they cannot accurately reflect som ething as complex as a college education, or predict hov ' well any particular student uiii lit into a college. U.S. Ndvs Woiid Rcpcrt combines the rankings by comparing the schools ' academic reputation, which accounts ltir 25 percent ot the o erall score, taken from a surve) ' ot university ' presidents and deans, the schools selectivity (25 percent), faculty resources (20 percent), retention rates (20 percent), alumni contribution rate (5 percent), financial resources ( 10 percent), and a value added category (5 percent).

The University ofVirginia, which was 19ch, and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, which was 24th, were the only public institutions among the top 25 last ) ' ear. But not onl} ' Cal students, hcult) ' . and staft iiave had their complaints about the US. News rankings. Stanford University senior Nick Thompson heads the FUNC, the Forget U.S. News Coalition, which is a nationwide group ofcollege students whose goal it is to try and persuade universities to decline to submit inbrmation to the magazine ' s annual report. Reed College, a small college in Oregon, already does not submit information to U.S. Neiw. Student governments at Smith, Michigan, Rice, Penn, Stanford, and other universities ha c passed resolutions condemning the rankings. A study by UCLA Associate Professor of Education Patricia M. McDonough criticized rankings otcolleges because they are based on easily quantified information such as SAT scores and GPAs, but do not address many other important and more complex factors such as what the student population IS like, possibly misleading students into choosing a school that is not right for them. Anthony Lising Antonio, a student in the Graduate School of Education and Information Services at UCLA who worked on the study, said in the Daily Bruin that " in many ways, what the magazines are doing is putting into print the common high status sensibilities and reinforcing people ' s ideas about colleges and unn-ersities. " Al SanofT, managing editor " America ' s Best Colleges " , published by U.S. News ami World Report, has had to defend the rankings on a regular basis. Fie has claimed that while the rankings have imperfections and should not be the sole source of information for picking a college, they are a valuable tool to compare different institutions. Chancellor Tien, while recognizing the flaws in the rankings, has taken the opportunity to address points that need improvement, such as the low rate of alumni contribution, or the steady decline state funding in recent years. Improvements are necessary in these areas, regardless of how much these accurately reflect the quality of education provided by Cal compared to other schools. A staff editorial in the Daily Californtan also noted that a lower student-to-taculty ratio and improvements in student services would not only raise the school ' s ranking, but also the quality of education. The biggest danger of the ranking is that prospective students take them too seriously without fully understanding what lies behind them, and without taking into account other information about the potential schools as necessary to make a good decision. And wliilc administrators should also look at the data and tr ' to improve o n it. tlic ' should also realize the need to pro ' ide prospective students with additional information to put things into perspecti ' e. To do so, one just needs to look past the most popular U.S. News rankings. In a stud) ' conducted by Professor F4ugh Graham of Vanderbilt Universit} ' and Nancy Diamond. ,i graduatestudentatthe University of Maryland, Cal was ranked as the number one public university in the nation. 1 n another study conducted every ten years by the National Research Council. Berkeley had 35 of its doctoral programs ranked in the top ten in 1996, more than an} ' other university in the country, |ust as in the pre ' ious survey. The entire report spans 740 pages, gathering quantitative data on 30 criteria, and including more than 8,000 professor from across the country. Fi ' e Berkeley programs were ranked top m their fields, a number only second to Harvard and Stanford, which both had six top programs. Regardless of the rankings. Cal is one of the top institutions of higher education in this country, if not the v -orld. It offers tremendous opportunities to learn from and work with top flight faculty, and the diversity in its student body that is unmatched. And while improvements may be necessary, Cal pro ' ides everything for an excellent education-it is for the students to take it.

But before these successes, among which IS his chancellorship at Cal, Dr. Seaborg also had to go throui;h college. Reacquired his bachelor sdegree from UCLA, which back then, " had only 4 buildings, chemistr) ' . ph -sics. the library, and Royce Hall, " he recalled. The summer before he started as an undergraduate, he worked the graveyard shift as a control chemist at the Firestone Company. In his fourth semester, he began his work as what was then called a " reader, " and could be compared to the work of teaching assistants today. Since there was no graduate work being done at UCLA at that time, undergraduates took on the tasks of graduate students. " I worked as laboratory assistant and read problem sets, " said Dr. Seaborg. " I earned 50 cents an hour, which was enough to support myself. For other extracurricularactivities was hardly any time, as he was working up to 50 hours a week. His interest in science, which earned him a Nobel Prize in chemistry with Edwin M. McMillan in 195 L was sparked b) ' his teacher Dwight Logan Reid, who taught chemistry and physics at his high school in Los Angeles. Taking a course m atomic physics at UCLA, his professor John Adams, a lineal descendent of the former president, got him interested in pursuing graduate studies in chemistr) ' at UC Berkeley. Subsequently, Dr. Seaborg committed himself to Cal. I only applied to Berkeley for graduate school, and didn ' t e en consider any other schools. " He admitted rliat he uas a little nervous " while waiting for his acceptance letter. " But I had a good letter of recommendation from a professor who earned his Ph.D. at Berkeley, he added. His arrival on the Berkeley campus opened a new world to him. " Here they were, Ernest Lawrence, Gilbert Lewis, Robert Oppenheimer. Great scientists whose textbooks I had read as an undergraduate. It was like X ' alhalla. " ' Alore than tu ' enry umvcrsxixcs offered mepositiois Ernest O. Lawrence, who invented tiie cyclotron and founded the laboratory bearing his name iiuhe hills above the Cal campus, was the first VC. Berkeley Nobel laureate m 1939: among the many that followed were the poet Czeslaw Milosz, who won the Nobel prize for literature in 1990, and the economist John I larsan)i. who received the prize in 1994. Until recendy, the campus e ' en had a Nobel Laureate parking lot. with its own " NL " permit stickers, right ne. t to Hearst Mining Circle. I he lot was just removed to make room for Fan Hall, the new chemical engineering building. After working on tiie hist atomic bombs in Chicago during the second World War, Dr. Seaborgreturned to Berkeley, despite many other options. " More than twent ' unu ' ersities offered me positions, he said, " but here 1 had the best working conditions. " From 1958 to 1961, Dr. Seaborg served as Chancellor of UC Berkeley. " We were very successful in athletics during that time, " he recalled. During that period, the basketball team won the NCAA championship, and the teams in water polo, baseball, crew, and rugb) ' went on to win national titles. In 1959, he watched the Cal football team loose 1 2- 38 against Iowa in its last Rose Bowl appearance. Just as Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien, he used to pace the sideline to support the team. " I used to do that. " he said, " but I guess 1 didn ' t get as much publicity. Today, Dr. Seaborgisstill very in ' olved in man) ' aspects of the universit) ' : almost an} ' undergraduate science student u ' ho has taken a general chemistr) ' class has sat in a guest lecture given by him. More than 65 students have earned their Ph.D. under his supervision, and gone on to their own successful careers in chemistr) ' . But for science students today, he recommends to " go into molecular biolog) ' . " There are few scientists with careers more successful or as deepl) ' entwined with UC Berkeley as Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg ' s. As chemistry professor Alexander Pines said in the Daily Cciltfonmiv. " With his brilliant disco ' eries and contributions to the education of our youth, Glenn Seaborg is to a large extent the histor) ' of chemistry at Berkeley. " And Dr. Seaborg himself is confident about tlie future: " We have always had good leadership that brought in good people. I think this will continue.

This time, she returned to the town ol Porto ie|o in Ecuador, and the tocus oi her trip is not to stud ' or to impro ' e her Spanish, but toapply and build on her experiences. " 1 am working in an edible oils plant that has decided to adopt a conscience and hnd out how badly it ' s contaminating the environment, " she says. She analyzes data from samples taken by a biochemist, puts it into graphic form, and reports back to the company about their environmental impact. She added that " so far it ' s been really interesting because they contaminate like there is no tomorrow! I pretend to know a lot, but it seems likejust having every day skills is impressive to them so far. I n addition to working at the plant, Clark also took on a job teaching English to optometrists two nights a week, and as if that was not enough, she is also working with the Cit) ' oi Portoviejo to help clean up their river.

" 1 m using some of the same tactics and techniques with high school students here that 1 know work well in Bay Area schools, except in a different language, " said Clark. In addition, many classes in her environmental sciences major introduced her to real-life problems and focused on problem soK ng skills, which also helped to prepare her.

' Not at all, " she said, " because I still feel like this is a acation for me.

Limmertime in Berkeley: Rudy Batts, who i iaduatcd in die spring of 1 997 with a degree in political science, welcomes the incoming students before leaving Cal. Batts is one oi about forty Cal Summer Orientation (CalSO) counselors, uho lead groupsofnew students around campus for twodays, introducing them to various aspects of Cal. " CalSO does more than give tours; we empower students by providing them with ways to balance then- social and academic lives, he said. During his first year at Berkeley. Batts realized how important the two days of CalSO can be for students. " If it wasn t for m ' counselor, I would have left Cal after a year, he .said. CalSO is very intense, for both the new students v ' ho get their first v;limpse at what lies in the four years ahead of them, as well as the counselors, who are under a rigid schedule over most of the summer. After a spring semester of weekly classes, an intensi -e training program follows in |une. " Those were prett) ' long days, ' recalled Shanthi Sekaran, an English ma|or and CalSO counselor for the summer 1996. " We ' d go from 8 o ' clock in the morning till about 10 oclock at ni ht. " Durinij CalSO, programs run from early morning until late at night as well. " Atsix in the morning, onepair of coun.selors would be assigned to wake everybod}- else up in some creati -e. fun way. " said Sekaran. The first day of every CalSO program ends with a late-night activity, for e.vample bowlino;or bingo, after which both counselors and counselees tumble into bed. The On the second day, students have their first encounter with lelebears to sign up for " Some people are really mellow with It. Some people are a little bit nervous, " remembers Sekaran, " maybe they expect that the 1 elebears lady will yell at them. " E ' en thoui h CalSO can be strenuous, both Batts and Sekaran really en|oyed the summer as counselors. " What would I have been doing otherwise, asked Sekaran. " maybe take classes, or watch Oprah- I his IS much more productu ' e, I felt like 1 acfLially helped people. Itisdefinitelya worthwhileexperience. " Batts added that one of the rewards of CalSO is " what happens later m the school year, for example when one of your counselees comes up to you and tells you that he succeeded and that he credits it to you. " CalSO IS also a lasting experience that binds new ties. " CalSO brings people together, remarks Batts. Last year ' s CalSO counselors played together on a intramural soccer team in the fall, and the group tries to stay m touch. E ' ery summer, the circle is closed, as one group of araduatint; students moves out and on in life, and a e;roup of freshman and transfers moves into Berkeley. Andagroupof dedicated Cal students tries to ease the transition: as CalSO counselors. the ' equip every student with the basic tools to sur ' i ' e and succeed at Cal.

He WA wanted to go abroad to study at La Uni ' ersidad de Chile in Santiago, practice his Spanish, and learn about a different culture. In addition, he also intended to travel extensi ' ely over the break. But after the spring semester was only a few weeks old, the students seized control of the university, shutting it down effectively, and onl) ' after seven weeks gave it up to the administration.

Hyok Chong graduated from Cal in 1996, and currently works as an EAP Program Assistant in Stephens Hall. After spendinga year at the Universit} ' of Sheffield and a semester at the Maiji Gaukin University in Yokohama, he also v orked as an EAP advisor ar UCLA. Even though Chong knows of some horror stories about studying abroad, he said that " generally, we have a pretty high success rate, and probably an even higher satisfactory rate. " When going to school a five-hourcar ride from home can be challenging, one can imagine difficulties for students who dare to .spend a semester or two in a country on another continent. " Of course there arc difficulties, adjusting to the new culture, being away for the first time, admits Chong, " but most people do all right. " The great distance to home is bridged by technolog) ' , in particular e-mail, by nov ' used by students around the world. " Most of thecountneshaveprett) ' decent facilities. " saidChong. And when the campus including its computer facilities is shut down, as it happened in Santiago, the telephone provides the missing link to friends and family. " My phone bill is about $240, " said Schwiebert. He added that once the computer facility for the foreign students is open again, all the Santiago EAP students will jam into it right away, making it rather difficult to get access. " [3on t hold you breath for any e-mail I More than 50 students from all the UCs study in Chile with EAP every year. The most popular country is the UK, which also offers the widest selection of host universities, followed by Spain and Mexico. Among the UCs, Berkeley sends the largest contingent, but still only one to two percent take the chance to spend the time to study in another countr -. A total of 302 students went abroad during the 1995-96 year. In the past 30 years, approximately 25,000 UC students have gone to study abroad u ' ith EAP. In comparison, 45,000 students from Korea studied m the L ' nited States in 1996 alone. It IS a shame that not more students take the opportunit) ' to immerse themselves in a foreign culture.

According to Alvarado, Greeks need to strengthen their public relations at Cal and relay the message that their organization is a community brmiming full of diverse and well-rounded people. She also emphasized the importance of Greeks collectively working together through support of each other ' s house activities and philanthropies. " Down the road, all these small steps will result in Greek unity and a stronger community, " she said. " We need to be proud of our organization and remind people of the unique advantages that the Greek system offers during the college experience.

" It ' s the best place for learning outside the classroom. " With a Greek Olympics scheduled for next tall and a Greek system is capable of, Greek unit)- may very well be New Beginnings The year was a period in which individual houses took a step back to reevaluate themselves. One fraternity that shut down for reorganization was Sigma Nu. In Februar) ' 1996, the Sigma Nu alumni board temporarily closed the Berkeley chapter and forced the active members to take alumni status, saying they weren ' t maintaining the house properly. According to alumnus Bob Tuck, the chapter, prior to reorganizing, strayed from the ideals that Sigma Nu and the Greek system, as a whole, upholds. He said the members ' party st) ' lc heavily contributed to the house ' s destruction. " It was a house full of broken doors, broken windows and broken promises, " Tuck said. " The actives were grossly ignoring the risk reduction policies that govern how you have a party with alcohol. We needed to protect the viability of Sigma Nu ' s tradition and the property itself. " From February to August 1996, the house underwent rehabilitation. Thanks to Sigma Nu ' s reserve fund, $240,000 made house repairs possible. Renovation included new bedroom furniture. to protect theViability of Sigma Nu ' s tradition and the property itself. ' refinished hardwood floors, new carpet and a freshly painted interior. The house also received a new fire sprinkler system and an Internet connection. Meanwhile, all actives were asked to move out in order tor Sigma Nu to start fresh with entirely new members. The alumni, however, considered allowing the pledges (from that time) to become eligible for active status. As a result, five out of the six pledges were initiated this spring. Sigma Nu has now grown to over 30 members, almost double the amount before shutting down. Along with the renovations, the improved Sigma Nu has new regulations. In August 1996, Sigma Nu made a landmark decision by becoming the first fraternity on the West Coast to go " substance-free. " Under this policy, no alcohol is allowed in the house. Sigma Nu parties are now held in other fraternity houses or are given in private homes. So far, they ' ve had success with this radical change. Members say this new policy enables them ro focus on academics and maintain a well-kept house. " Being substance-free gives us more motivation to do other things, " said current president, Mason Bancroft. " We knew it wouldn ' t be impossible [to be substance-free] because sororities are under the same policies. " Some say their part) ' reputation has been affected by the new policy, however. " Everyone thinks Sigma Nu is a monastery and that we don ' t socialize, " said Bancroft. " That ' s a fallacy. Being substance-free gives us the opportunity to do things with and without alcohol. " Other changes have been made as well, decided [continued on page 8o] GREEKS 77 by both the .ilumni and new actives. Academics is a now a bigger emphasis. As a result, no social activities are planned during midterms and finals. Likewise, maintaining the upkeep of their house is a top priority. On .1 rotating basis, both actives and pledges now do tasks such as vacuuming, cleaning the bathrooms and mowing. " Everyone does chores, " Bancroft said. " It gets everyone working and respecting the house more. " Bancroft said all these new changes are a huge step forward for Sigma Nu as well as the Greek community. " We are creating a new type of Greek culture, building a responsible environment for responsible people, " he said. Restructuring for the Future riic soront) ' . Alpha Omicron Pi, also took time out for reevaluation, but for different reasons other than Sigma Nu ' s. After a long series of unsuccessful rushes, their national headquarters, the alumni board and the chapter itself decided to take a new approach in gaining membership and restructured their sorority during the summer of 1996. Restructuring involved transforming their sorority into a program geared toward the woman of the 21st ccntur)-. During this time, A O Pi discussed ways in which their sorority could suit members ' needs more efficientl) ' . In light of this, the) ' made changes in their administrative positions, rush strategies and internal operations. " We spent a lot of intensive time on what ideals we wanted to stress, " said member. Anne Schonaucr. " Emphasis on planning rush, for example, changed so we could get to know people better. " Other improvements included a greater focus on the members ' individual needs. One new development is ntor program in which an A O Pi is marched with .in alumna to help further her career and life goals. Restructuring also entailed making house activities a less-time consuming factor to accommodate individual schedules. These new changes have given a boost to the A O Pi morale, where some say their low membership before restructuring was difficult to h.indlc. " It was very traumatic for people in the house, " said Schonaucr. " But when we came back, morale was really high. People had a lot of energy, " she said. Now back to " normal operations, " A O Pi is no longer the smallest sorority on campus. Rather, their membership has tripled to over 30 members. Some new members say they joined because the) ' wanted to pl.iy a part in determining how the chapter will run. " Its reall) ' exciting to change things to where the universit) ' is nan. effort to preserve their ho.uses and up- hold tradition, Greeks reevaluated tbeir practices and objec- tives 78 GROUPS ' A good sorority is n6V6r goingto be able to stop reinvent- ing themselves now. " said A O Pi member. Rachel Levinson. " We were looking tor membcr.s who where willing ro participate in this. " Alumna Gail Fletcher said restructuring was crucial to Alpha Omicron Pi ' s existence. " A good sorority is never going to he able to stop reinventing themselves, " she said. " Every member involved m the chapter is playing an active role in what A O Pi is going to be like. They can be proud about improving their image on campus. " Internal Reorganization In the midst of reconstruction ot individual houses, the Greek System also displayed a maintenance of standards. For the first time in eight years, UC Berkeley revoked its recognition of a fraternity on campus because of two incidents of assault by Alpha Kappa Lambda members on other persons. According to police reports, AKL was put on probation after an incident involving an attack on two people m February of 1996. A large number ot AKL members violated this probationary period eight months later with an assault on three other students. " There was a serious lack of restraint on the part ot AKL members, " said Doug Zuidema, manager of student conduct. " There ' s no way the university wanted to be associated with a group that does this. It was behavior we couldn ' t tolerate. " Consequently, all AKL members ot the Berkeley chapter from that time were given alumni status and the fraternity itself was suspended by their national headquarters. UC Berkeley has also restricted AKL from reapplying for recognition no earlier than the semester of Spring 1999. If AKL is reinstated as a fraternity, part ot the stipulation prohibits any 1996 AKL members and pledges from re-affiliation. The closing ot Alpha Kappa Lambda and the " reopening " of Sigma Nu and Alpha Omicron Pi demonstrates an " up and down " cycle that all communities endure. For the Greek system, maintenance and reconstruction is an essentia l inevitability that replenishes vitality for the 21st century. -Karen Soriano Alpha Omicron Pis get dressed in costume on Halloween.

To those that pass by 2728 Haste Street, it is simply the sight ol an unfortunate and preventable accident. But for the brothers of Psi Upsilon tracernic) . it is a sad reminder of their struggles past and present. All it took was one candle to start the fire that consumed the Psi Upsilon house as well as its morale. The new year brought with it a resurgence ot the Greek s)stem tire safety issue as three Psi Upsilon members and two borders were aroused quickly to the life threatening situation. Jaiuiary 9,1997, .seemed like just another day; and for Berkeley .students, it marked one more week of freedom before the new semester began. Little did an)-one living at 2728 Haste Street realize that withm hours, everything the traternity had worked towards would be consumed by flames. The fire, reported at 9:47 am, was kindled by an untended candle flame on the second floor which later ravaged its way to the attic. The flames in the rear of the house poured out and threatened the safer) ' of an adjacent apartment complex. In wake of the emergency, the five tenants were left scrambling for exits and for their lives. Two nonworking emergency chain ladders forced the tenants to look tor alternative ways ot escape. An outdoor fire escape .saved one man while others sprinted down interior stairs and out of the burning house to safety. And final!)-, one woman was found clutching the second floor window sill before fire fighters could get a ladder ro the distressed woman. Assessing the damage, the tenants were not seriously injured beyond suffering from smoke inhilation. However, only describing the physical damages of the house and the tenants would be trivializing the damage done to the fraternity ' s morale. Because of the blow, the fraternity was unable to rush new members and openl) ' recruit which just added to the major setback. " Psi Upsilons are worried about what ' s going to happen. It ' s just perpetuated negativity. ..The fire was a sharp blow to morale, " said Chintu Sharma, the acting president at the time of the fire. " When things aren ' t looking good, chat ' s all that is left. see if someone else wants to take over. " But in a time of low morale, filling leadership positions is not an easy task, especially since many members are in limbo about staying or leaving which is now the current president ' s, Anuj Bhardwaj, biggest worry. Psi Upsilon looks to the future tor hopes of regeneration and most importantly to its new face are the new members to take control. The fraternity now takes on the God-like responsibility of creating what used to be Psi Upsilon as well as improving upon the old. Sharma describes their plans of reorganization: " We want to rebuild possibly on the current site. Hopefully, the insurance will come through. We ' d love to restart over. " They say that home is where the heart is, but the Psi Upsilon fire shows us chat nature ' s forces can obliterate our encire world and leave us to nature ' s mercy. Fire prevention and safety techniques are integral to warding off these kind of disasters since they can arise at any given moment. At the time of the fire, Psi Upsilon was amidst in their plans for implementing sprinklers which would bring them up to tire standards. Inspector Dennis Foley of the Fire Prevention Division points out other common fire code violations seen in fraternity houses during routine inspections which include: missing or disarmed smoke detectors, limited lighting in hallways, non-illuminated exit signs, obstructions in the hallways, lack of fire extinguisher maintenance, and overflowing trash cans. Behind the fire code issue lies a controversy among the fraternities, the universit) ' and the fire prevention division that was sparked back in 1991 after a fire killed three UC Berkeley students. " In response to the fire that killed the three people, an ordinance was set up basically outlining that certain livinggroups are required to have sprinklers implemented in their homes by 1997. According to the enforcement of the law, it narrowl)- concerned fraternities and [cotUnuicJ on pa c gS] arise at any given Up A firefighter fights to save the roof of the Psi Upsilon fraternity house which caught fire on January gth. Although the fire caused thousands of dollars in damage, no one was seriously injured. ■ - i ' eoi ' ' 94 GROUPS rr ALLittook was one can die to start the fire % x Behind the fire coue ibi ue ues a controversy amongtie fraternities thp uniypr ;itv and the fire prev.ention division sororices, " says Adam Gromfiii of tlic Student Advocate Office. It seems that such heightened concern on tlie Greek system is due to the s) ' stem ' s past histot uith fire safety. Many members are unaware ot what exactly is happening and why. In such a caa the students ' rights are ambiguous. Presently, the Student Advocite Office is working to dispel .in rumors regarding fire safety. According to Gromfin, they arc " contacting the various acioi involved to try to get them to admit to some sort of consensus. " The enforcement of the fire safety issue has caused heat among the different tactions. In 199( ice Chancellor Padilla openly supported the ciitorcement ot the ordinance and called it a " polic decision " to place non-compliant fraternities on indetinite social probation. Social probation ca .iltecr major house parties, formal dances and other fraternity hosted social functions. One coul sa) ' that a major component ot fraternity lite is the social scene and the debate ov( whether this disruption over tire safety is fair or not continues. Members withm tli mm Greek s) ' stem arc split on this issue because it essentiall) ' comes down to a matt( of money and time invested. Graham Scanlon, a sophomore pre-med student ZBT fraternity, expresses his opinion thoroughly: " We had planned to hold ' Cisc Disco ' and our party had been okayed by the university. However, they implemente the new rules s.ijiiii; that houses m non-compliance are not allowed to hold soci, functions. At that point, we had already begun to set up, had hired a d.j. an bartenders. These things cost our house a lot of money that we weren ' t going to gi back. It was definitely a time investment, too. We set up tarps to keep the noi; insulated and we warned our neighbors that we were hosting a part)-. The tii department even came to ZBT that da) ' to make sure that we weren ' t doir anything wrong. It was ridiculous how they shut us dciwn. One negative reason th; I see tor having a sprinkler system is what happens it the sprinklers do get triggers at a party by accident, then the whole house is ruined. " Man)- houses are not up to tire regulation standards mainly because ot tl mone)- factor. Generall)-, $ 10.000-$30,00 is needed to fund such a venture.

EritWu 96 GROUPS ta L GREEKS 97 like Alpha Epsilon Pi have already taken out loans from their national chapter and are left at an impass because they are in extreme debt. AEPi implements other fire deterrent devices such as alarms, fire doors that slam shut when the alarm goes off, fire extinguishers and smoke detectors. Sprinkler systems seem to be the most money consuming. Sophomore house member Mattan Lurie says, " I don ' t think that sprinklers would make any difference. They ' d be a nice addition, but the house other fire prevention devices. Not every home has a sprinkler system. To add to the confusion, traternit) ' parties hosted by houses tli.u are up to code arc still being shut down for different reasons. On March 15, 1997, L.iinbd.i I ' lii Epsilon sponsored a party after bein told their (raternit) ' had met the tire standards. However, the party was broken up by the Berkcle) ' Police Department on the grounds of the house being overcrowded. In response to the police ' s intervention, Kcvm Wong, a sophomore business administration major and member of Lambda, respimded by saymi;, " It was our understanding that the houses that were up to code could hold parties. We turned in our party form to Sproul Hall and the university said it was fine. If we knew that our part) ' was going to get mistakenly broken up, why would we have wasted our time and money? Technically, we are up to code and we have been since Christmas break. " Later in the spring semester, on April 12th, Sigma Phi Epsilon, a house that is up to code, held a party that ended abruptl)- due to a pulled alarm, junior house member David Liang explained that one of the auxiliary fire alarms was pulled, " but not by anyone in the house. " He said, " After the alarm was pulled, the police and tire department came to tell us that cvcr)onc had to evacuate. ..The da) ' of the part) ' the fire department came to check on our decorations and nothing was against the tire codes. " Though students wanted to dance the night away, the impending police cars were heard in the distance. Even though the night was still young, Liang was able to speak diplomatically of the mishap. " Ever) ' house in the Greek system should have a fire system, " he said. The most common tire code violations found at a party scene include: props and waterfalls set up impeding pathways; untreated decorations such as butcher paper and palm frons which burn rapidl) ' ; blocked exits and overcrowding. Though houses ma) ' be up to code, the) ' are sn subject to police or fire department intervention because of other possible violations that houses may not be aware of until it becomes a major problem. March 21st became the final deadline for the Berkeley Fire Prevention Division to receive a plan of action from each fraternity. All except two houses have responded and those two houses have received extended deadlines which expire on October 15, 1997. The consequences ot not meeting the deadline include the house facing a citation m which case a house representative has fifteen days notice to appear in court or fix the cited problem. If demands are still not met, the faces being closed down. While the fire .safety issue rages on, the main concern of man) ' houses is a matter of project funding in order to continue being an active part within the Greek system. The parties involved are continually trying to work towards a common goal, but time, money, differing of opinions and nature itself, in the case of Psi Upsilon, arc inevitably at their heels. -Jeannie Lee gamma zeta alpha (iRHFK FAC r.S Nickname, tht.

The ' shock may also offer an opportunity to become acquainted with your own culture if yougrev - up with little exposure to it. People whojoin these organizations do not necessarily see theirorganizationasex ' clusionary. The clubs are places where people can celebrate their common interests, histories, and activities. Of the over three hundred registered organizations, half cater to a specific ethnicity- or culture. Many were founded when Cal was not the diverse school that it is today. Other types of ethnic clubs are also designed for a particular area of study and offer support for those in a specific major. Several t) ' pes of organizations are also meant to help guide graduates into the working world.

Faith comes m many forms and the greatest impact that it has on this campus is visible through its religious student organizations. Some see religion as beingsheer fanaticism, yet tor many, it is their tocus, their way oHite, or their de ' otion. As religion can be a key factor in an indn ' idual s lifestyle, student tjroups, including the Jewish and Muslim Student Unions and Christian Fellowship offer college students a chance to meet, interact, and talk to other students with shared beliefs. This sense of belonaint; can brine; a rewarding!; change and contribute to a healthier way of life in a unu ' ersit) ' environment that promotes individuality. The religious studentgroups on campus provide not only that sense of belonging and acceptance, but also an opportunity to learn new things, e.xposed to different viewpoints, and ex-press personal opinions to the open minded. Many groups meet on a weekly basis to take part m worship, fellowship, discussion, study, entertainment, and social interaction. Because the college e.vpenence is more than |ust knowledge, facts, and books, these groups, whether formally or informally organized, add to and enhance a student s time in the universirv setting. Commonality ' of faith is one of the most important ties between people, especially students who are far from home and possibly from religious roots, includingfamily and piaceofworship.Religiousstudent groups create strong bonds and aid in making; memories and experiences. Although it may sometimes seem as if t;roupsareexclusive and partial, the positive effects that they can extend to student seems to outweigh any negative stereotypes that go along with religious organizations.

The Bears started out the season with three quick wins against Western Athletic Conference teams: San jose State, San Diego State, and Nevada. In years past, the team may have lost one or more of these games, however, with Mariucciatthe helm, the Bears sailed through the preseason schedule with no difficulty. However, their 33-15 victory over Nevada proved to be a costly one as leading rusher Tarik Smith was lost with a season ending knee injury. A new rule allowing overtimes in college football brought one of the most excitinggames to Berkeley since 1982. In triple overtime, Cal outlasted Oregon State A8-A2 before 34,000 crazed fans. However, it wasn ' t until Cal beat USC on the road 22-15 did Cal receive any respect from outsiders, and more importantly - - Wide receiver Na ' il Benjamin enjoys the glory and cheers from team- mates and fans after making a touchdown.

With this victory, Cal fans everywhere w ere setting their eyes on a bowl game, and some daring Cal fans were even lool ing towards the Rose Bowl. However, a last second 21-18 loss at Washington State quieted all those people. This was perhaps the turning point in the season. Up to this point, everything had gone Cal ' s way. However, with just over a minute left in this game, quarterbacic Pat Barnes fumbled the ball inside his own five yard line and Cal blew their chance of starting out the season 6-0. This loss was to be the first in a string that saw Cal lose six of its last seven games.

This time the offense was not able to bring Cal back from a large deficit. While many people thought the suspense of the Oregon State game would never again be recaptured, at least not this season, the Arizona game quickly brought that thought to an end. In anion filled four overtime game, Cal outlasted Arizona 56-55. Most importantly, however, Cal would capture that ever so elusive sixth win which would make them eligible for a bowl game. And boy did they need it as they lost their last six games of the regular season. Head coach Steve Mariucci, con- centrates on the game strategy and looks on the player ' s perfor- mances.

However, the Bears played the eventual Pac-10 champions well before allowing a flurry of points in the final period. No one expected Cal to win this game as former Cal coach Bruce Synder was leading ASU to its miracle season. What was more frustrating to Cal fans, however, was the fact that Synder was supposed to lead Cal to the Rose Bowl only four years earlier as 7 Cal returned from a 10-2 season with most of its key players returning. However, former athletic director Bob Bockrath failed to resign Synder, and with Synder, went any hopes for a run for the roses. In what turned out to be the most lopsided Big Game in years, Cal quickly realized that its early season aspirations were too high for the young Cal team. In a turnover filled game, Stanford defeated Cal 42-21. After this loss, Cal football reached its lowest point of the season. The only memorable part of the game, for Cal fans, was watching the Stanford mascot, Chris Cary, having his costume torn off him by thousands of Cal students. Even with the slow finish, Cal was able to secure an invitation with Navy to play on Christmas day at the Aloha Bowl. However, the aloha Bow was not what the Bears had hoped for. Itwas what their entire season was about: fast starts and slow finishes. The Bears jumped all over the Midshipmen early, but were unable to hold the lead as Cal saw Navy roar back to a - victory over Cal. After the season was over, Cal coach Steve Mariucci left the Golden Bears to become the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. With him went all the hype and slogans over his short ear at Cal. Defensive Coordinator Tom Holmoe replaced not only Mariucci but also the slogans, hype, and emotions. Instead, Holmoe replaced the emotions with discipline. This new approach is one that should eliminate penalty filled games in the future. This, along with Cat ' s best recruiting class in years, makes for an exciting beginning to what should be a brilliant future for Cal football.

In a move to expand water polo, the NCAA decided to grant the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation only one spot in the tournament of four along with another leaving another spot which was also filled with a MPSF team. Finishing the season as the nation ' s 4 ranked team, the Bears nearly managed toplaytheirway into the tournament as they won their last four games heading into the MPSF tournament, what many consider the true national champion ship of water polo as it featured all of the nation ' s top teams. With a 10-8 victory over UC Irvine, the Bears advanced to the semifinals against Stanford. The two teams had split their previous two meetings of the year as Cal had defeated the Cardinal 9-7 in their last game. However, this one turned out to be a different story as the Bears lost 9-7 and ended any hopes of bringing home a record I2th title to Spieker Pool. OveralltheBearsfinished 15-7 and 4-4 in the MPSF.

The Bears, however, managed to squeak into the tournament on the strength of their early season start, but were quickly shown the exit by Fresno State 2-1 in the NCAA tournament.

SIX OF TEAM S SEVEN LOSSES LEFT THEM BEHIND BY JUST ONE GOAL FIELD HOCKEY 135 and the band plays on_ For 106 YEARS, THE BAND REMAINS DEVOTED TO THE SPIRIT OF CaL With over 100 years of tradition, the University of California Marching Band is one of the oldest college marching bands on the West Coast. The predecessor of the Cal Band, the University Cadet Band, was founded in 1891. In 1991, the Band ' s centennial year, the Cal Band received the Berkeley Citation, the University ' s highest honor, in recognition of its 100 years of devotion, spirit, and service to the University. Among the many famous people who )layed with the Cal 3and are Chief justice Earl Warren and President Emeritus of the University of California, Robert Gordon Sproui, who was the drum major in 1912. Over the years, members of the Cal Band have attended overi50 consecutive Cal footballgames, with the full band performing at every home game and the Straw Hat Band travelling to games as far as Purdue, Temple, Wisconsin, and Hawaii. ThecurrentCalBand,underthebatonof Robert Calonico, boasts a membership of over 190 students, and is one of the few bands in the nation that still marches the traditional and demanding high-step form, unlike any other band in the Pac- 10 Conference. The California Marching Band performs at all home football games, and at selected away games. The California Straw Hat Band is a subgroup of the marching band which performs throughout the year at various campus and communityevents, in addition to Cal ' s away football games, men ' s and women ' s basketball games, volleyball, ice hockey, swimming, gymnastics, lacrosse, baseball, and softball. The Cal Band has also been seen and heard at ski resorts, on " Wheel of Fortune, " and members have allegedly been seen at Stanford the night before Big Game. The Cal Band ' s membership reflects the variety of academic disciplines found among the student body of the University of California, representing majors from ail colleges and schools of the University. Engineering is the largest represented area of study among 1997 Band members, of which 21.5 percent pursue degrees. The success of the Cal Band depends upon the loyalty, devotion,andspiritof its mem hers, who work for what outsiders call " nothing, " receiving no academic credit or financial compensation for their involvement in the Band. But once people see the camaraderie among Cal Band members and the smiles on their faces after a performance, they soon realize that the bandsmen do not work for " nothing.

Not only was it the last year in Harmon Gym for the Golden Bears, but also proved to be the most rewarding year in recent memory. It all started when last year ' s national freshman of the year and Pac-10 Player of the Year Sha reef Abdur-Ra him decided to skip his final three years of college and enter the NBA draft. Then starting power forward Terrmaine Folwkesand High School All-AmericanJelanlGardnertransferred to different schools leaving the Bears with a depleted roster. However, the NCAA granted fifth year senior Alfred Grisgby a rare sixth year of eligibility due to injuries that plagued him for most of the last three years. Then coach Todd Bozeman, who help built up the team, left the team amidst controversy involving an alleged payout to Jelani Gardnerwhenhewasinhigh school as well as sexual assault charges brought forth byaformerCalstudent, which were laterdismissed.

Gone were the years when the Bears played little or no defense, but instead relied on their high powered offense to carry them through games. All of a sudden it became a team game. That was evident from the start as the Bears traveled to Hawaii to battle in the Maui Classic. Once there, the Bears immediately brought out their new attitude and won two games against top 25 teams and put up a valiant effort against Kansas, the team that would hold the number one ranking for most of the year. Once conference play started, the Bears managed to start out only 1-3. However, that quickly changed as the Bears won nine of their next ten games. But then tragedy struck the Golden Bears. In perhaps the finest performance ever by a Cal player, Pac-lO Player of the Year, Ed Gray broke a bone in his foot. With just over a minute left in a game at Washington State, Ed Gray drove to the basket in what would be his final hurrah. He finished the game with a school record 48 points, including one stretch were he scored 27 of the team ' s 30 points in 6 minute 44 seconds. With Gray out, the Bears season seemed certain to be without hope. However, Braun rallied his troops and inserted All-American tight end Tony Gonzalez in to the starting lineup. The Golden Bears proved to be golden as they won two of their final three games to close out the year and earn a No. 5 seed in the East Regional of the NCAA tournament.

From the time it was first erected in 1933 and simply known as the " Men ' s Gym, " Harmon has had a special place in the hearts of Cal fans everywhere. It isn ' t one of those overpriced arenas with luxury suites and modern creature comforts, but a oversized, multipurpose classroom, a relic of the Great Depression that ' s stood the test of time. It ' s a loud dungeon for games as well as a silent sanctuary for students ' final Athletes and fans pay TRIBUTE TO HaRMON GyM, WHICH IS TO BE REBUILT examinations. And boy has it seen its share of Great moments. Perhaps what defines Harmon isn ' t the 75-67 upset victory over UCLA ending the Bruins 34 yea rand 52 game dominance over the Golden Bears after which Cal fans and the Straw Hat band celebrated and celebrated, and celebrated for hours after the game, but rather the Stall. I n 1956, the Bears faced the U5F Dons and their All- American center Bill Russell. The Dons entered the game with a 39 game winning streak and a number one national ranking. Legendary Coach Pete Newell had the perfect game plan: to keep Russell away from the key. However, that planned seemed destined to go down in shambles when starting center Duane Asplund fouled out. but a legend was born. Newell instructed joe Hagler to stand with the bail at half court and not to move until Russell came to guard him. Russell didn ' t. Hagler stood at halfcourt for ten minutes before Newell instructed him to pass the ball. Whether it is a five overtime win against Oregon or an upset by the women ' s team over eventual national champion Stanford in 1992, Harmon provided a setting in which anything can and will happen. The hope that Harmon provided its players was immeasurable. Playing in Harmon, players felt they could do anything. " As a player, you always had them in your corner, " said former Cal star Jason Kidd. " You ' d feel like you could dunk everything, you could feel the energy of the place and that was something I was really excited to be a part of. You could feel the electricity in Harmon. " Harmon ' s first golden era was ushered in with the appointment of Pete Newellas head coach inl955. Inhissix years at Cal. the Bears won the conference championship fourtimes, wentto the NCAA title game twice and won it all in 1959. Newell ' s teams were nearly unbeatable at Harmon, going 62 -16. The Bears won 26 straight in Harmon i nig 59-60, the longest home winning streak in Cal history. Then when Coach Newell retired after the i960 season. Cal basketball fell on hard times for the next 2 5 years. However, in 1985, another golden era, one that is still going on, began when Athletic Director Dave Maggard hired Lou Campanelli toturn around the Golden Bears. That he did, and more. In his very first year, he boldly predicated the end to UCLA ' s dominance over Cal. and he delivered. On January 25, Cal upset UCLA 75-67 to end the streak and inaugurate the most successful period in Cal basketball since the late fifties. In 1993, Todd Bozeman took over the program and immediately led them to an appearance in the sweet sixteen of the NCAA tournament with the help of the friendly confines of Harmon. In 1996, after Bozeman was fired, a young stalworth named Ben Braun took over the job and promptly continued Cal ' s dominance at Harmon, as wellasawayfrom it.

For the record. Golden Bears won the last 17 games played in the venerable old Gym, After the game, head coach Ben Braun told fans to follow the team into the NCAA tournament, and that they did. Cal made a remarkable run into the sweet sixteen before falling to powerhouse North Carolina. In 1999, Haas Pavilion will open. It won ' t have the same intimate feeling as did the old 6,578 seat bandbox, but it wi undoubtedly build its own legend much like Harmon did. The Haas Pavilion, which will be named after not only a financier, but also a fan, will be a modern up to date facility much like Harmon once was, and will unquestionably bring Golden Bears fans lasting memories for the next 64 years.

HARMON GYMNASIUM 147 national champs again The Cal men s gymnastics team brought home the national championship trophy for the third time in school history this season and earning a place for itself in the NCAA record books in the process. After a 1996 season that saw the Bears finish just three tenths of a point behind national chap Ohio State, the Bears came into the season with one goal in mind: the national championship. The team was nearly unbeatable this season as they failed to finish first only once all season and dominatedfromstartto finish.

No one could beat us today. " NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP The team was led by All-Americans David Kruse and Trent Wells. Both seniors, took it on their shoulders to win the national championship. Throughout the season, the pair helped their teammates to excel and were instrumental in winning the national championship. This is the third time the Men ' s Gymnastics team has won the national championship, the last was in 1975 most recently in 1975. This also marks the first national title for any NCAA Division-! team at the school since the men ' s water polo squad captured the crown in 1992. While the Cal men ' s gymnastics team won the national championship, the women ' s team wasn ' t nearly as successful. The team ranked 25th nationally heading into the NCAA regionals were the top three would advance. After putting forth a valiant effort, the Bears finished the sixth, ending their season. On the year, the Bears were led by freshman Leila Khoury who finished 15th at the regionals. With Khoury returning ■■■ next year, the Bears have a strong nucleus to build around for the future.

" Before the season, I thought we might have to shoot for eighth or ninth, but the team has shown me in the last few weeks that we are ready to play at the next level.

This year ' s squad was led by sophomore Eden Anderson. Anderson recorded the second-best stroke average (81.1) on the Cal team during the 1996-97 season, and was the Bears top finisher in the California Collegiate (lOth) and the Ping Arizona State Invitational (23rd). She established school records for 36-hole low score (151) and 54-hole low score (229), and her round of 74 at the California Collegiate was the best round by a Cal golfer this season.

After an 8-4 loss in last year ' s championsfiip game, the Golden Bears vowed that they would return and avenge last year ' s loss. However, that was not to be the case. The Bears entered the National championship game with a 31-6 and was the only team to beat UCLA, 33-1, this year. The Bears had competed tough all year against UCLA in all of their games while narrowly losing five of six games. With the rest they received before the championship tournament, the Bears were prone to upset the defending champs. However, UCLA proved that it is the best team in the country — at least for now — with a 6-3 victory. Even though the Bears led 1-0 and tied it at 3-3, UCLA scored the games final three goals to pull out the victory. Once again, just like last year, the Bears promised to be back and better than ever. With most of the key players back for next year ' s squad and only two graduating players, the Bears should once again compete for the National Championship, and with a few splashed of the water going their way, could win it all. Led by junior transfer Alisa Von Hartitzsch, the Bears compiled a 31- 7 en route to a number two national ranking. Von Hartitzsch, who transferred from Brown led the Bears with an amazing 119 goals. Clearly the best player on the team, she was constantly double and triple teamed. Von Hartitzsch isonly likely to get better as she is now facing toughercompetitionatCalthanshe did at Brown. Even with that said, she was still the best player in collegiate water polo — the second time in two years the Bears have had the player of the year.

WOMEN WATER POLO 153 we ' ve got The University of California Rally Committee was founded in igoi. The mission of the committee was to plan and stage rallies as well as to guard and embody the spirit of California. In the beginning. Rally Committee members produced several bonfire rallies a year, all in the area that is now the Hearst Greek Theater. They also were placed in charge of the Big " C " on Charter Hill. In 1910, Rally Committee became the official guardians of all campus traditions. A few years later, the committee thrived in theearlyyears, ever increasing in both size and responsibilities. During the war years, though, students found world matters fortoo important and it wasn ' t until the 1950s when the Committee thrived again. In the 1960s, with a group of dedicated and spirited members, the committee created the light board that hung in Harmon Gym until the late 70s. It was also at this time that the Committee was placed in charge of the California Victory Cannon which was donated to the university by the Class of 1964. Typical dress for a Rally Committee member has progressed over the years. Originally, one could identify a member by their white cardigan and blue and gold hat. In the 1980s, it was only the blue and gold hate, and the 90s saw the committee acquire their blue and gold rugby shirts, making them more visibleand starting a never ending stream of bumble bee comments.

A strong season by the Golden Bears was highlighted by the arrival of prize recruit Danyon Loader. Considered the top recruit in the history of the program, Loader came to Berkeley from New Zealand where he led his country with two individual Olympic gold medals in swimming. Once in Berkeley, his impact was immediate. Even though he wasn ' t in swimming shape, he won virtually every event he entered and led Cal to one of its most impressive seasons in years, before falling in the NCAA championships. Hoping for a top five national finish, the Golden Bears faltered to a 15th place national finish as Loader sat out the NCAA ' s to concentrate on academics. His absence was clearly a blow to the team as the Bears failed to live up to expectations. However, the young squad returns virtually everyone from this year ' s squad and will undoubtedly improve upon this year ' s 15th place finish in future years.

Led by sophomore Amanda Augustus, the Bears reached the National quarter finals before being upended by number three Duke. However, even with the loss, the Bears finished the season as one of the eight best teams in the country. The main change this year was the addition of two key freshman: Claire Curran and Esther Knox. Both players were key in Cal ' s success throughout the year. Knox, a freshman from Australia was injured early in the season but came back to beat tradition power Stanford in her match and move into the Round of 16 at the NCAA individual championships. Curran on the other is a freshman from Ireland. Teaming with Augustus, the two formed a potent doubles combination that saw them win the Pac lO championship, and reached the round of l6 in the NCAA championship before being upset. However, even with the freshman, this year ' s leader was clearly the sophomore Augustus. She led the Bears as the number one singles and teamed with Curran to form the number one doubles. She provided stability at the number one singles throughout the year and helped the younger players improve as the year went along. With injuries affecting the playing status of several of Cal ' s players last season, the remaining members of the Golden Bear men ' s tennis team were forced to play at a higher level earlier than expected. This season, Cal will used that knowledge to build on its 1996 accomplishments, especially considering that two of the Bears top players elected not to compete collegiately this year.

The blow was too much for the Bears to overcome during the regular season as they finished 36-26 and 13-14 in league play. However, once NCAA regional play began, Cal surprised everyone with their success. Making its 12th consecutive and 13th overall appearance to the NCAA Tournament this spring, Cal ended wi th a loss to Fresno State in the regional championship game.

However, Cal lost to Fresno State once again, this time by a 9-3 score. Still, the Bears, who were ranked 25th in the country entering the postseason, impressed the voters enough to move up to nth in the final rankings released afterthe NCAA Tcurnament. On the season, Cal was led by sophomore pitcher Holly Yost who more than picked up her share of the load, setting several school pitching records and leading the team in hitting in Floyd ' s absence. As Cat ' s only other true pitcher besides Floyd, Yost threw in a Cal-record 56 games, breaking the mark of 48 set by Michele Granger in 1993. Yost ended the year with a 29-21 record, a 2.74 ERA, 11 shutouts and 186 strikeouts. She pitched complete games in both of Cat ' s victories in the NCAA Regional and was the Bear ' s pitcher of record in Cal ' s final 27 contests. At the plate, Yost paced the team with a .327 average. In addition to Yost, first-baseman senior junior infielder Kristin Drake watches after her hit, above. Holly Yost picked up in the place of Whitney Floyd after Floyd injured her knee, left. Yost set a new Cal record by pitching in 56 games, breaking Michele Granger ' s record in 1993 of 48 games, left. Melanie McCart also provided needed spark to theteam. McCartended her career as the most prolific power hitter in school history, setting single season records for home runs and RBI and career marks for doubles, home runs and RBI. In 1997, she clearly had her best season at the plate, batting a career-high .315 with 15 doubles and school records in both homers(lO)and RBI (54). For her career, she had 47 doubles, 28 homers and 153 RBI. McCart also filled in at pitcher during her senior campaign, appearing in 21 games and com pi ling a 5-3 record with a 3.88 ERA.

The Bears once again dominated collegiate rugby with a 16-3 record and the national championship. The only three losses were all to foreign teams, and the third, was when Cal played the reserves in hopes of preserving the starters for the run to the championship. I This season was even more sweeter for Cal, because it avenged its only loss to an American team in the over a hundred games when the ruggers defeated Stanford this year. Cal dominates by winning 7th striaght national TITLE, ITS 14th overall Once that happened, Cal easily sailed through the rest of the seasonandadatewith last year ' s runner-up, Penn State. This game was much like last year ' s as Cal thoroughly dominated the Nittney Lions in route to a 41-15 victory. However, early in the match, sophomore wing Doug Anthrop was injured and taken to the hospital giving the Bears extra motivation to defeat Penn State. Anthrop was forced to leave the contest in the first half after a collision left him on the ground for 20 minutes, and spent the rest of the afternoon in the hospital rather than on the field with his team. " We had somethingto play for-an added bonus, " said senior scrumhalf Kevin Dalzell. " He ' s been a great contributing factor. He knew we were playing for him. " The victory was dominating, and the season so successful for the Bears, that even Nittney Lion head coach Terry Ryland was awed by Cat: " If you find a way to break it, let me know — I ' ll pay for the postage. " As successful as the ruggers have been, there is no reason to assume they will not continue their success. Head coach jack Clark continually restocks the team with talent and they practice harder, watch more film, and execute better than any other team-and that is something that will not change.

Throughout the year, the Bears worked up to the championship row, a six- minute period that would define how successfully the Bear ' s season was. Cal came through with flying colors placing third place nationally and just 0.2 seconds behind second place Brown. " I ' m very proud of my team, " said Gladstone. " Nobody ever likes to finish third, but we exceeded the expectations I had when I returned to Cal last August. The grand final in the varsity event was a fierce battle and it hurts to miss out on the silver medal by only 0.2 seconds, but when you finish a season and have beaten every team on the East Coast with the exception of Brown and the undefeated National Champion, Washington, there is a sense of accomplishment there. " i Oarsmen. Lars E Jason Boyle train for NCAA championship row, in which they placed third, just 0.2 seconds behind Brown. - " When 1 rejoined the Cal program, the goal was to reestablish Cal among the nation ' s elite rowing powers, " said Gladstone. " After this weekend, it is clear thatwehavedonethat. Although the season just ended minutes ago, I ' m excited about the future. We return six oarsmen from our varsity eight, a number of strong junior varsity oarsmen and some very promising freshmen. Although we will not set our goals as a group until next August, there can be only one. " Men ' s AND women ' s VARSITY EIGHTS SOAR AT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS After struggling to a mediocre fifth-place finish in the Pac-io last year, the women ' s varsity crew made a dramatic turnaround this year by finishing sixth at the NCAA Women ' s Rowing Championships. " 1 really don ' t know what to say, " said coach Anna Considine. " We ' ve made so much progress this season. Last year we struggled to a fifth-place Pac-lO finish and this season the team improved to sixth in the nation. I ' m proud of the athletes that made this turnaround possible. " In the championship row, the Bears raced well in the first 500 meters of the race maintaining contact with Princeton, Virginia and Brown in a fight for third position. By the time the crews reached the 1000-meter mark, however, the Bears were 8 seconds off of eventual Washington ' s pace and a length back of the three-way battle for third. Cal was unable to move back into contention during the second half of the race and finished the season with a No. 6 ranking in the nation. Clearly this season was a success for both the men ' s and women ' s crew teams. Next year with most of the key rowers back, Cal crew will challenge for its rightful place atop collegiate rowing. women ' s crew team competes in the NCAA Championships •re they placed 6th in the nation. 171 i 5 NIORPORTRAITS PERSONAL COMMENCEMENT TRADITIONS REFLECTIONS SENIORSURVEYsi c - I I ?

SENIORS SECTION A PERSONAL ACCOUNT r A WHOLE NEW Forrest Hartl i m P - " looking back on m) ' two years i f oFstudy at Cal, it appears more like T k m Ma -acation than a huge part o my j " f-W m X life. Not to say that it wasn ' t memorable, but as a transfer Y student, It just went b)- so fasti ' , Ever since I was a child, I ' v-e written stories, but it wasn ' t until 1 auditioned for a school play in my sopho- more year of community college that I realized I may find a career in theater. Thus, I knew what I wanted to study, and 1 knew I v ' anted to leave Los Angeles. I chose Cal. As a transfer student, I knew my time was limited. I wanted to " do everything " and quickly I realized that was impossible. The luxury of exploring different majors or studying abroad was something close to impossible for a transfer student. One of the other challenges was having to prove myself all over again. Directors at Cal knew nothing of me when I walked into an audition and were less inclined to trust me over a continuing student. Through classes and extracurricular activities, however, I met many people and felt a lot more comfortable in the department. In the next six months, I performed in three shows. In my th ird semester, I wrote and directed my own show on campus. In my final semester, I won a regional theater competition in Utah. Cur- rently, I am preparing for the national competition at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The other facet of my experience at Cal is my work at CalSO (Cal s Student Orientation). To avoid going home to Los Angeles, I became a CalSO counselor for the summer of 1996. The job taught me more about the school than I ever could have learned on my own, and working closely with a diverse group of my peers taught me more about myself than ever before. At the end of summer, I was selected to coordinate the orientation programs for new transfer students. Now, I am training the new staff o( counselors and will be spending another summer in Berkeley. My plans before coming to Cal have changed tremendously tor the better. I no longer want to go back to Los Angeles and rejoin m - old friends. The relationships I ' ve formed at Cal have been the strongest of my entire life. 1 plan to stay here for now, and work in theater or for Cal. Though visiting Mount Rushmore and Old Faithful was exciting, no place but Cal has attracted me as a tourist and left me here as a resident. 174 SENIORS Larry Aagesen ' ° pnysKS Laila Aboullah anlliropology Madison Adams american studies Alfred Adaza , appliecrmalhematics Ronda Adiiam, ,, , , mofecuTarand cell biology Steve Aifsahi ... business administration Kathleen Agaton ■ntegrative Diology Winnie Alamsjah arcWfecture Nicholas Alciyar civil engineering Elisa Aldecpa . political science TalalAl-Haydari, ,. ,. polilical science and public policy Orpheiis AUen ' mechanical engineering Kristina Alvarado sociology BennetAn. , . . elecfrical engineering and computer science Jacquelin Anaya ' spSnish Dwayne Anderson ' political science Karen Anderson Li!, romiental science Kevin Antonio 1.- :n Antor [ijVch ' iljEv MallyArad , . .

As we move on, may we remember our Cal ' ears as some of the best times of our lives. Let these golden ' ears, or rather, blue and golden ' ears. be transformed into the memories that will last a lifetime.

We uill surely miss the diversity which Berkeley is so famous tor, ■ di ' ersit ' that we have learned to take advantatre ot. According to senior Farhad Farzanetjan, " Nowhere else in the world can you tind so many things to do and meet so many different kinds ot people. ' Each ot us can recall the unique atmosphere ot Berkeley: the odor ot Telegraph, the crooning ot Rick Starr, the perpetual drums on Sproul at night. Non- Cal alums might wonder what we lo -e about Berkeley, but we have learned to lo ' e Berkele - tor its unusual, but strangely bewitching charms. May we remember tlic tncnds, the life-lessons, and maybe even a little ot our education (who knows, it might come in handy someday...). Our li -es touched and came together as the Class of ' 97; and although we have come trom and will embark on ditierent paths in lite, we have at least one more moment to share with one another. This, our commencement ceremon) ' , we will share as we ha e shared the past tew years ot our li ' es. We graduate: and this too will be torever imbued in our collective memor ' .

Her husband told me. " I m not ' ery good with pain. Call me when It s over, " as he stepped out for a cigarette. Her brother ' s family stopped by tor 1 5 minutes to stare. Bemc; unable to speak english did not help either. Mrs. Kim was about to deliver her first child, yet through this terrifyinsj and wonderfial event, nobody to her was willing or able to give her the emotional support and interpretation skills she needed. I was very fortunate to share this experience with Mrs. Kim as her Labor Coach. As my first and most memorable patient, I stayed in the hospital with her for 16 long hours after discowring that she would have difficulties due to gestational diabetes. Aitiuuigii most of the time was spent pattinij her arm or keepint her mind occupied. 1 was able to translate all the paper work for her and her husband and interpret the many- questions and comments the nurses, doctors, and Mrs. Kim had: I volunteered to go into surgery with her during the C-Section. I witnessed an event that would sustain me through the many deli -eries that I would participate in and that would be the final determining factor in my decision to pursue medicine. When 1 was young, my family would go on mission trips to Mexico with our church. At the age of 11 , 1 watched a doctor administering a shot to a little girl named Maria, who was gritting her teeth but was actual!)- smiling despite the tears that trickled down her cheeks. Realizing that the vaccination would pcssibly save her life in the future, the tiny girl bore the little amount of pain bravely now in order to embrace life tomorrow. 1 learned a lesson from Maria that I still hold today. Nothing can be accomplished in the h.iture without sacrificing something in the today. Coming to Berkeley gave me quite a culture shock when I first arrived, i was rather disillusioned by the " pre-med track " that halt the people 1 met were racing on.

I also saw many pre-meds get discouraged and break down undci ' pressure. I was frustrated and wanted to give up. Although 1 let my grades slip through this " wandering period, " I cooked while living in the co-ops, tried a variety of jobs in the work study progiani and api cauijht up in the whirlwind of clubs and social activities and met people I would normalK ' have ne ' er met. I made friends that had a grasp of who 1 was as a person and not how much I could be of to them; 1 spent a lot of time with a friend who came to Berkeley to escape a broken family; I coped with the loss of another friend who committed suicide and icllcctcd on what life was all about. This time enhanced m} ' lite and ga c me the wisdom and understanding to see what reality is all about. But I felt a compelling call that pulled me back to the " pre-mcd track " . I worried about how I was going to get back into good studying habits and how to " race " with the other pre-meds out there. I remembered the lesson I learned from Maria. Getting into medical .school and going tiirough the rigorous track might require a call for endurance and sacrifice now. but it would be well wordi it. My exposure to di crsity in Berkeley constantK ' reaffirms my decision to go into medicine. Hncountering the homeless daily and facing the extremes of .society, I dealt with things that made me grow up real quick. Many of the classes 1 took, especially those in Public Health, made me think about the importance of a health}- body, which we often take for granted. Being bilingual allowed me to olunteer tor Asian Health Ser -ices m the heart ot Oakland, as a Labor Coach and Patient Ad ocate for recent immigrants. Tra -eling to the isolated " village ot the lepers " in Korea shov -ed me the horrible conditions there, and I think of how I could serve as a dcictor there. I received an insight into Ih w inner ciry clinics (unction through the Coalition for ( AHicerned Medical Professionals and Central Cdinic Alameda Ambulatory Services, and it showed me the rewards of being a doctor and also the need for doctors to donate their time. 1 did some w ork for a FDA-sponsored research project on an ulcer-causing bacteria which really opened my eyes to a bigger picture. It surprises me to find that now, 1 know why I am " running the race. " Maybe 1 am just a little slow and most other pre-meds already knew before they started...but one thing is for sure; it feels right. I guess that when making a decision like this, nobody can tell you u hat to do. Now that graduation is coming up, I will be applying to medical school.

I ' m not referring to customs or language or physical appear- ance; the similarit) ' transcends all ot these points of difterence. It resides at the le ' el of understanding.

Good and bad are not absolutes, nor are the - mutually exclusive. Essentially, this is the Taoist notion of Ym and Yang— two extremes that envelope each other, a piece of each held within the other. This notion was best explained to me by Professor Huston Smith in Religious Studies 90A. Protes.sor Smith related the story of a farmer who insists that one can ne ' er tell what s good or bad; and in the end, after an accident prevents his son trom being sent to u-ar, his assertion rings true. In my case, I ' ve had some housing situations that I e seen as BAD, but in the end, .something GOOD has resulted from each ot them. If I hadn ' t had one such Hnfmuiunc residenc)-, 1 would ha -e ne ' er met my South American friends, ma - have never studied abroad, and probably wouldn ' t be living at the International House now — one housing arrange- ment that ' s been positive trom the beginning!

Another precaution before the Bit; jame is " checking up on the C on the Hill if itanford students had painted it red, said senior .hris Wong, a molecular and cell biologj ' major. One of the more celebrated traditions are the ard stunts during the Big Game. Computers elp students hold more than 5,000 cards making nages such as the Stanford Axe and the Cal C. )ver the )-ears. Stanfordians had ridiculed Cal . " udents by using the axe to cut up the blue and old ribbons, but later Cal fans stole the axe.

The most vibrant presence during the j;ame is the Cal Band. Before marchino; up to the stadium, the Band members rub noses with the stone bear by Strawberr ' Creek, v ' hich brings ijood luck and victory. Then they head down to Lower Sproul to hear some inspira- tional words from their Drum Major. Since 1 959, the Silent Walk has been a form of initiation into the band. It takes place on the e ening of the hrst home football game, begin- ning at Sather Gate and ending at Memorial Stadium. During the walk, the new members learn about the Band s and L ' ni ' ersit) ' s history plus the importance of the role of the Band to instill the ( " alifornia spirit.

During the year, clubs and other organizations hold their own traditions. The ethnic clubs try to promote their culture to students who may ha ' e been in America tor too long and have never had a chance to learn about their own background. " During our spring culture show we bring up historic stories lor students who ha c Ix-en here for a long time to react with students who have just come from Vietnam, " ' .said .senior Vieh Ngo, a nuclear engineering ma]or and a member ol the Vietnamese Student As.sociation ( VSA).

During election time political clubs traditionally rally behind their parties. The Cal Republicans, the largest student group in the state, attends political conventions and organizes internships. " We also have wine and chess parties where we come together to talk about current political issues, said sophomore Lenora Reyes, a political science major.

BY Marian Liu SENIORS 197 II A PERSONAL ACCOUNT FINDING Eric Hwang foreign studcnt-at least rliat ' s what I was when I arrned on campus in the tall of 1992. It was a year after I had Hnished high school and, in the year I had spent workinaon the Pacihc Rim, many tumultuous changes iiad happened. The Cuilt War was won. Rodne ' Kiiii was beaten up, and the So -iet L ' nion fell. DehniteK ' , those were interesting times to be an incoming;; h ' eshman. Of course, I had preconcen ' ed notions ol what the ne, t live ' ears were supposed to be like. My dad iiad always told me that America was the battle- ground ot those v -ho were my age and Cal certainly seemed to he a place where the unwitting and tiie complacent were weeded out. M - whole famil) ' wondered how long 1 would last as irtuall ' e ' er) ' one predicted 1 would be back on the hist boat. Within a month ot ni) ' arri -al, the GSIs went on strike and someone tried to kill the Cdiancellor. The huge size ot the L ' ni ' ersity didn ' t help one bit. And everyone 1 talked to in Sproul had that air ol weariness and indifter- ence — that ) ' our visit was something tor tiieni to get o er witii. I belie -e the appropriate term was " hostile inditterence — we don t gi e a tuck, so screw you. Detmitely, I was in a sink or swim environment. I knew I had to Find two things fast: a niche, it possible, and a ma|or. Most people, it seems, manage to tind the .second one e entually, bur leave here without e ' er finding the first one. I found that the second can be done by fulfilling requirements, but the first — well, that really depends upon you. Winning an ASUC Senate Seat doesn ' t necessarily mean you ' -e found a niche. Rick Starr and the preachers out on Sproul -the) ' appareiuK ' ha ' e. Well, the major came first, of course. 1 here are four so-called " u.seful fields to invest your four years in-business administration, engineering, pre- med, and pre-law. My aversion to anything c]uantitati ' e meant 1 was in the last category. Thus, 1 joined the rest ot my ilk in c]uickly fulfilling the rec]uire- ments for the political science degree. Then the niche — well, that was trickier. It seemed that in high .school, 1 had too many niches: student ijovernment, school oig,in. |unior RC I C, etc. tOHtlllHl ' S 198 SENIORS w Kaicn Kim , . „ . . , lecularand cell biology Mi-Hyang Kim .

A niche with my own kind — well — that ' s an original thought. I lound there were at least five different orvjancations of Chinese students here, d: ided according to mainlanders. Honsj Kongers. Taiwanese, foreign students and American- horn. The First few were bad enough, with enough of my kind who ne ' er bothered to assimilate m their time here, and u ere congregating in their little dance parties. The last was hell, with brothers ridiculing you tor not speaking with an American accent. So much tor acceptance of du ' ersity. 1 decided to strike it out on my own. My grades were doing fine, 1 was coasting along with an as-yet unpadded resume. As a freshman, the chances of running for the ASUC Senate or working for the Daily Cal were close to zero. So 1 turned to the last thing I had expertise with, and that while allowiiii tioshmen to play a signifi- cant role, seemed to ofier the best promise of an appealing resume. " Be all you can be-Army ROTC. " I became a " tolerable " cadet, ser ' ing on planning committees tor commissioning ceremonies and military balls. 1 think 1 was even decorated for ironina my uniform well. Clearl) ' . this was not my niche. By then, I had finished my lower division years without finding my niche. However, I had taken a class in the spring of my sophomore year called International and Area Studies 98 where various lecturers in the diflerent fields of Political Economy. Development Studies, and other related areas would give a lecture and try to interest us in pursuing these areas of interest in our upper dnision years. The fact that the course was student-led and that my section instructor was a graduating honor student named Renticld (after the character in Dracula) who dyed his hair blue and danced on the table to make a point didn ' t hurt. Ren was a senior who also spoke fluent lapanese and was on the Tai Kwan Do team. Here was a guy who had found a niche. He wasn ' t e.xactl)- m - mentor, but definitely, I considered him something to look at. True, he may have seemed weird, but I wasn ' t exactly mainstream my.selt. ell. people who come to Cal hardly are. I hat s why I chose this place. That fall, I decided to declare Political Economj- of Industrial Societies as my major. For me, it v as like coming full circle, since it was a field that was not only appealing to employers due to its wonderful sounding acronym, but also interdi.sciplinary enough to cover the various cjuestions that I wanted to ask since working tor an Asian trading firm three years before. Economic globalization, international relations and all this definitely appealed to me. Most importantly, my major allowed me to find my " niche ' . I followed in Ren ' s footsteps as a student instructor, a ]ob I kept for three ' ears, culmi- ii ' iKimio I KNEW I HAD TO FIND TWO THINGS FAST: a niche, ifpossiSfe, and a major. Most people manage to find the second one eventually, hut leave here without ever finding the first. 200 S E N I (1 R S Ka Yii Lai Na cy Lam Linda Lan ,. , eiiglish Donna Landeza piV ;nology Scott Landry Michael, Lane molecular anilKi ell biology Valentina Lantigua !i:irip irative Lilerature Edward Lara ird Lara loliticil scieni Marcus Larsson economics Alice Lau ii:criitecture Christine, Lau mexau . , nusiness administration Edmund Lau arcnifecttire Jetfrey Lau , ii ecfidiiical engineering Jenny Lau ' nolecular and cell biology Sophia Lau ' n Stephen Lau psychology political science Sara Lauter H IC Rebecca Law art practice Sarah Lazar sociology and mass communications Allen Lee .

Also, I manai cd to hnd some outside time as a peer adviser and internship coordinator for hiternational and Area Studies (IAS, the mother program ot PEIS). Finally (in a weird throwback to my ROTC days), I served as gradua- tion chair For the IAS Commencement Ceremonies ot ' 95 and ' 96. Without realizing; it, I was at least able to share some oi the kilhllment this program had given me to students in the same boat that 1 was while ha ing the unique opportunity ot seeing the whole thing trom start to tinish. Academicall} ' and non-academically, my three year tenure as an IAS student and PHIS major tormed the most productive years ot my tive-year stay at Cal. As an Honor Student writing a thesis on intellectual property protec- tion, 1 was able to mesh ni) ' past, present .iiiJ turiirc interests in .m eight) ' page project. As a student instructor and peer advisor. I was able to share some ot that tultillment with others. As a Golden Bear, I was able to spend the last three years " in most interesting times " as an international student and not a foreign student. I he man ' changes that ha e happened in the world since then make me teel that the investment I have made in the last tive years was dehnitely worthwhile. Especially v ' !ien prospective employers ask you what you studied at Cal and what PEIS means. I usually respond by giving them the standard textbook detinition ot political economy as the interplay between politics and economics, wealth and power, and that sufhces. To m - students, however, I usually tell the tollowing story: A little boy had an assignment — which was to tind out the meaning of the words " Political Economv . He went home to his dad and asked him. His dad ga ' e the following rcpK ' : 1 am capital — tor 1 make all the money, " l our mother is the government — she gets all the monc} ' . I he housekeeper is labor — she works tor us, tor our money. Your baby brother — well, he s the fiiture. The little bo ' went to bed that night, not knowing what his tather was talking about. At one in the morning, the little boy woke up, hoping that his tather would clarit) ' it tor him. I le went to his parents ' room — to hnd his mother sleeping and his father missing. He tried to wake his mother up to tind out where Dad was — but she kept dozing. I le went to his baby brother s room to tind the baby crying, his crib all wet and his diapers all soiled. He finally went to the hou.sekeeper ' s quarters to tind. ..his tather sleeping with the housekeeper. The next day, the little boy stood before his class and gave his report. " What IS political economyr ' the teacher .isked. The little boy replied, " The gowrnment is sleeping. Capital is screwing labor. The future is full ot shit. " The story always gets a good l.uigh. At the same time, it reminds me ot the cynic I used to be before I found m} ' niche at Cal — 1 rcall) ' thought the future was full ot shit, we should focus mosti} ' on avoiding getting .screwed, and that indeed, it was a curse to be Ining in such times. Rut that need not be the case. The future? I hat is up to us. Academia may gi ' e answers, but the answers are not necessarily solutions. Answers only expl.iin win things are a certain way. Solutions tell you how things can be. Solutions are what e need and the ability to tind solutions, I ' hink, is Cal s greatest gift to me. ?n2 SENIORS Linda, Lee molecular atid .

Here I got something that no school in the east could have t;i ' en me. It s not |ust the great weather, but a unique spirit of wilderness. Irs craziness pervaded e ' ery aspect of the lifest)-le, from the classroom to the bathroom, making it a learning e.vperience that was complete in e ' eiy sense of the word. Starting out as an ignorant freshman like the rest. I was awed and intimidated by the institution, the upper classmen, the subcultures, and the different kinds of people I saw for the first time.

I ne ' er imag- ined that an esteemed institution like this could have such a silly and outra- geous atmosphere. Every trip to Sproul Plaza was filled with spectacles. The indi ' iduals who preached and protested there never ceased to shock and entertain me. This outrageous atmosphere also filled the dorms where I stayed for my first two years. 1 he students v -ere incredibly diverse, ranging from outspo- ken grungeheads to conser ' ative x ' aledictorians, with a full range of others in the middle. I he hallways were like a |ungle where the wild beasts danced, wrestled, skateboarded, and studied. The bathrooms were shared b} ' males and females alike. I was quite shocked. But it didn ' t take long for my neigh- bors ' wildness to get to me. Iheir bad music, pot stenches, and strange habits no longer bothered me after awhile. Through them I overcame many of my preconceptions about people who were different. Fear turned into wonder and I started making friends with different people. I tried out different student groups, went to frat parties and attended Cal games. I performed in the UC Men s Chorale performance each .semester. I started ha ing intellec- tual debates with friends over mocha at arious cafes every Friday night. I was actively becoming a part of Cal. School was intense.

I had to accept that I uasn t the host anymore. I he competi- tion kept me constantl} ' on m) ' feet. Surxiving v as never this hard, lortu- nately I quickly learned to take advantage ot the many resources tliat were available- the study groups. Black Lightning notes, and office hours were necessary tor my sur i al. Ihe) ' taught me to be aggressive in seeking help. I got used to the weirdness and toughness of the school by my second year. The shocks still came continuously though. One o( m ' classmates had multiple piercings on his ears, and eyebrtws, and v hen he spoke, he exposed his tonv e piercing. On a more personal level, one ol my friends came out to me told me he was sjay. As more new and different thini s flashed b ' me. the v ' ord " normal no lont er held an) ' meanmcr. I lie realit ' ot Berkeley was actively reshapint; and expanding my iew of the world. M} ' third year marked the begin- ning of a period of intense stress and isolation. I began ser ' ing my term as •111 " inmare under the architecture program. I heir so-called " studios were more like sweatshops dri ' ing students to v ' ork beyond their limits. 1 spent most ot my time, awake and asleep, in the tall, ominous tower of Wurster Hall. All- ni£;hters were common, as mv coilea ;ues broui ht coffee pots, toothbrushes, and pillows to the studio. The isolation, pressure of deadlines, and deprivation of sleep created from some very wild scenes in the studio. C " )ne time 1 played baseball with a crumpled piece of paper and rolled- up a piece of cardboard in the studio at 2 a.m. in the morning with some studio mates, in an effort to stay av ' ake. Day and nitjht, se ' en days a week, we designed, made dr.iv ' ings, and built models. 1 forced myself to sur ' i ' e the program when many others bailed. After 1 made it thouijh my first studio, there was no uork i wasn t mentall) ' tou£;h enough to handle. Looking; back, the intensity really made me what I am today-steel for£;ed in fire. The intense " studio period " was a period of incubation that mentally prepared me for the real world. By now 1 was looking both eagerly into the future and nostalgically into the past. In reference to the former, 1 got m) ' self an internship during the school year, and regarding the latter, I hoped to give something back to the .school by teaching a De-Cal class. As I en|oyed my last year, 1 indulged in the calmer delicacies around. I started with the lx okstores, cafes, and theaters and then spread to places in the liast Ba) ' , San F-rancisco, and other places. With graduation staring me straight in the face, 1 made the most of my time that year. I can look back and say that I did everything I wanted to do in my stay. In brief four years, I learned a lot about life, the world, and myself Cal was a great nurturcr, effectively mixing of harsh realir ' and silliness with an intense education. I WAS AMAZED AT GETTING Bs in my classes despite my cjrade-Ji efforts. 1 (oad to accept that 1 wasn ' t the Sest anymore. Surviving was never this hard. 206 SENIORS Benciiicto Macatangay Jason Maddi, [ihy.ji ■. rind niatheni.uics Maritza Madrigal Ra) ' Madronio Kim M.ii larvis M.ik Michael Malkin elecincdl engineering and computer science Amy Malloy . .

I was able to £;ain leadership skills through the offices and committees we have within our sorority. I always felt verv welcome and lo ' ed by all my sisters. I always thought of Alpha Omicron Pi as my second home. I came from a very close-knit family. This is something 1 wanted to find at Cal. I wanted the same feeling I receive when I walk into m)- own home with my immediate family. I wanted to live in an en iion- ment where I was accepted for what I am and belie ' e m. 1 consider AOIl and all my sisters as part of m - famiK ' and a cjuintessential part of my college hie. 1 learned a lot from my sisters and will always cherish the wonderful times and tnendsliips we had together. There was always someone there to talk, laugh, scream, cry, act silly, and .seek ad ice with during; all hours of the day and night. I am really gong to miss all this but I know that the friendships I made will not end with my graduation from Cal. Cal has a lot memorable experiences for me. 1 was able to gain so muc from attending; this university. 1 gained knowledge, experience, leadership skills, and cherished friendships through my short academic career at Cal. I will never forget the Big Game in 19% u ' lth ni) ' roommate, Connie. It was a thrilling and rejuvenating feeling to run out onto the field and chase down th e hideous tree.

" What does he look like: " He ' s Asian and dressed m a white polo shirt, 1 said. " He ' s smoking and standing [ust outside the doors, to the lelt. .

" Oka) ' , she said. 1 quickl) ' went to the hard plastic seats nearby and sat there while watching the encounter hxim a sate distance, it had to be him! He was wearing a bandage on his right cheek, just as he said he would. But the moir and more I thought about it, riu ' more I thought that it v ' as perfectly possible that some kid had hurt hmiselt and stuck a bandage on his face. So I doubted that it was him even as my heart raced and my excitement told me that it had to be him. The stranger gave him the envelope. He seemed surprised and accepted It. Then he looked inside. On the cover of the handmade card was a picture ot one of his favorite animation characters. It read: " hi honor ot our tirst meeting... " He opened the card. There was no picture there, only words in large, bold black letters saying: " Omae wa kurosu! " 1 wasn ' t certain it that was how to spell the Japanese but that ' s how he spelled it. Omae wa kurosu: 1 will kill yciu. It was ajoke between us. The Japanese animation .scries we were both interested in was Curidam Wm i. and in it, the main character ripped up a birthday invitation trom a girl and whispered into her ear, Omae wa kurosu. " We considered that the ultimate way ot showing true love. In this, it was just a way to make sure it was him. After all, how could I be sure- 1 had ne ' er met him betore in my lite! Our acquaintance was made over e-mail, the communication method ol the modern day. We originally met on a mailing list, and when he re ' ealed himself in small ways to be a decent person, I had written him private e-mail. a ' )ilim(f5 220 SENIORS B _ Sonya Soohoo ' Dioaynamics Paulina Soong,, , , ■niileculiir .indwll biology Karin Sorem . . biiiinesi tidininistration Karen Soriano Liza Soriano , , psychology Son-IengSou Dorte Stade ...

We had very similar oKsessions: Friendship, malc-honding, older sihlinvi-little sibling relationships, and ol course. Japanese animation. B ' the time I called him. I was very certain that we could he friends in real lite. It wasn ' t until he heard my voice on the phone that he hnalK ' learned that I was really a girl. Before, he had been contused, uncertain whether 1 was a guy, a girl, or two different people. i didn ' t e.xpect to meet him until summer, and con ' enientl ' enough, he happened to have an apartment in San Francisco. But then he mentioned that he was going to fly to the San Francisco International Airport, and so 1 knew that 1 wanted to meet him iwu: 1 couldn ' t wait. I wanted to know it he was " the one. There are some things that can be determined in real life that cannot be deter- mined in e-mail or c ' en civcr the phone. And that is how I ended up at rhe airport trying to find a man uith a bandage on his cheek. By the time 1 got to the airport, people were ' coming out of the door at the gate. I started checking out all the Asians leaving the airplane. Then AftCV Cl[[ 1. Yl€V€T fYiCt another Asian came out. one who was about the height of my brother. 1 watched him to see if he was meeting anyone; my man was suppoiied to be traveling alone, fde glanced around and then started to leave, just as he turned to lea ' e. I saw the bandage on his face! 1 chased after him, even went outside to where he was to sec v ' hat he was doing, and then went back inside the building to find a stranger to give him the card. He read it and looked very stunned. It was almost as if he were acting in a movie. He looked at the card with wide eyes. 1 hen lie looked up .u the stranger, who was walking away. 1 hen he looked back down at the card. He didn ' t rip it up the way the mam character had ripped up the birthday party invitation, so tor some reason 1 doubted that it was him even as my heart did acrobatics and told me that it was. Aher standing there for .se ' eral moments, he chased after the girl who had given him the card. I followed behind him. I kept imagining him catching up with the stranger and hax ' ing the stranger point me out, but as late would ha ' e it, he couldn t find her. After running all the way down to the gates, he finally gave up .md wcm to pick up his Itiggagc. I followed him as he pushed his cart to the international part of the airport. Sometimes he would slow down, and at one point, he actually ainwmci " Omae wa kurosou: I WILL KILL you " We considered that the ultimate way of showing true [ove. It was just a way to make sure it was f?im. fter ad, 1 never met him hejore in my life. 222 SENIORS AngelinTan , . .

When he did, he pushed his luggaije cart outside once again. I followed him out this time and walked right passed him. I looked around, pretending that I was waitmt for a ride. And then I .sat down next to a row of luggage carts. When I peeked out from behind them. I saw him approaching mel 1 ducked l- ack behind the carts. But it didn ' t save me. Before I could think of what 1 was going to say, he was staring down at me and lookinv; directly at me! Even at this point, 1 wasn ' t certain if it was him. I was scared that he would be a stranger, that he would ask me who I was and why I v ' as follow- ing him. 1 was scared that he vs ' ould threaten to call the police. I was scared that he might even be .i random per ' eit who was en|oyint; this qame of cat and mouse. But m)- heart couldn ' t stop thinking it was hmi. I started giggling when we v ' ere face-to-face. It was my normal reaction to anything diat made me nervous. He looked at me for a while. I looked back at him but couldn ' t hold it long before I started giggling attain. Then he finally spoke: " Hmm, so it ' s no ditierent Irom the phone, eh- " I only nodded. I suppose at that point we didn ' t need to confirm each other ' s identities. " Come on, " he .said. " Let ' s eo to a cafe, and I ' ll bii ' ' ou a coffee or something.

A.s the ice melt.s and the water drips down the side ot the glass cup, I reflect on the four years of my experience at Cal. It is funny because the onk ' thin that comes to m} ' mind is the Mountain [ ' w commercial where a bunch ot ys are .saying. " Did it. Done it. Do it. " Well, that sort oi sums up my experience. I have been lucky with Felebears and I am happy to say that 1 u ill not be doin the h ' e-year protjram. I will be graduating in May with my friends with a degree in business administration with an International emphasis. I was thinking ot doing a S.W.O.T. analj ' sis ot my lite lor this article, but thou ht otherwise. So what are some ot my most memorable memories? There are two humorous ones that come to mind. Psychology 1 is where I learned the term, " Paradigm .Shift. " It took the class and me most ot the .semester to figure out what the term meant. We were freshmen and no one ever really bothered to look the term up in the dictionary or anything. I he professor used this term every day through the whole semester and everytime he said it, I would look around and everyone would ha ' e these typical freshmen dumbstruck look on their faces. Business Administration 120 was where I sau ' the most incredulous human teat. You see, my tricnd tell asleep ten minutes into lecture and when he did, his face and shoulder started to tip forwards towards the desk, for thirty minutes his nose literally was a centimeter above the desk. And then finally, PLOPi I Ic hits his head against the desk and wakes up. Hilarious! I guess 1 sIhhiLI not be laughing since I haw also fallen asleep in How many times I do not knou-, I lost count when I was a freshman. On a more .serious note, I .iLso remember .ill the serene weekday mornings when i was walking through the laculry Cil.ide to mv eight oclock class and listeninsj to the harmonious rinvjs of the bells hit h atop Sathcr Tower.

And then I remember the countless hours ot studying; at Moffit Library. The ugly green chairs with the arm rests were m) ' favorite. UC Berkeley. Cal, the great institution, as we students call it has given me the knowledee to " let m - light grow. " Fortunately, 1 ha -e been rewarded for the knowledge I ha e procured here in the brm of a job that I will be starting in just a few months. It would be hir to sa)- that the List two years have been the most fun and interesting time tor me. 1 entered the Haas School of Business program when the new building was completed. Since then, Haas students ha e strned to li ' e up to the prestigious image that the new school demands. Yes, I know. Some of you reading this article are prob.ibK ' sa ' ini business ma|ors ha ' e it eas) ' . Sure, knov ' ing how to calculate NP Vs and debiting or crediting an account is not hard, but the competi- tion kills. Learning how to be competi- tive was an advantage for me because it pushed me to do better than the standards that I set tor m -self. At the time, to c et that A ' 1 reall - had to perfect the skills and con- cepts that the professor lectured about. Cal indirectly presents to students the chance to become invoK ' cd with the local community and student body. As an officer of the Asian Business Association (ABA) I was able to become a teacher myself as I had the opportunity to consult the members about the business major. ABA enabled me to become more confident to speak in front of a large audience and to learn the ins and outs of the world. In addition, ABA gave me an outlet to become involved in the local communit) ' . I have been able to help the elderly v itli their ta, returns, -olunteer at a children s 1 lalloween jamboree and I even picked up trash for a whole day at the Berkeley Marina. I think that most seniors will agree with me that Cal is more than just grades and classes. To enhance our education, to some extent we all take pride in participating in student organizations, community in oKement or voicing our opinions in University policies and politics. I can ]ust imagine walking across the stage to get my diplom a and shake that hand. 1 know that on the day of our graduation ceremonies that the sun will Ix- bright and the skies crystal clear — we deserve it for all the stress, determination and work that got us here. Cheers to .ill the lacult ' and people I have met. And I thank my parents, girlfriend and friends tor all their support and good wishes.
