The new admissions process has been adopted in an attempt to ensure fair assessment of individual students ' abilities. for Arcadio L3inez Jt by Diana Chai HARVARD, YALE, AND PRINCETON HAVE SOME OF THE MOST COMPETITIVE ADMISSIONS standards in the world. Acceptance rates are low, tuition high. Getting into an Ivy league school is every scholar ' s dream. What does this have to do with Berkeley? More and more students are realizing the benefits that Berkeley can provide and are applying to the University, making the decision for the administration more difficult. Simply having a 4.0 GPA isn ' t enough to get into Harvard, and it sure isn ' t enough for Berkeley anymore cither. Since the end of Affirmative Action with Prop 209. the admission ' s policy has been under fire and has undergone many changes. This year ' s class was selected using a new admission ' s policy that emphasizes not only academies and test scores, but also the extracurricular accomplishments of the individual students. " We have developed an admis- sions process that evaluates each student, judging all of their accomplishments and the context in which these were achieved. " Associate Professor jenny Franchot. head of the nine member Academic Senate Committee on Admissions, Enrollment and Preparatory Education told the Berkeleyan this year. Some of the main changes are the elimination of the Academic Index Score as the main measurement of a student ' s academic potential. Also, " capping " an applicant ' s GPA, where all classes were recognized as the same, has been ceased, and recognition to students who opt to take more challenging courses but may not get as high of a grade. According to lesus Mena of the Office of Public information. 50-75 " c ' of the class is still admitted based on academics. This isn ' t solely on SAT ' s and GPA, but these two components are still important because they give an objective method of choosing applicants - a must for a public university The rest of the class is then admitted based on character, leadership, and hardships overcome. These are the people who may not have the academic grades yet, but show that they have the motivation and drive to succeed at a competitive university Each applica- tion is read at least twice to ensure equal treatment oi all students. This new admissions policy allows a tairer assessment of indi idual students ' abilities and a more competitive way of comparing them to make the admis- sions process as objective as possible. in addition to the changes made last year in admissions policy, the Regents have looked at several possible changes to the admissions policy for the entire UC system.

Afcadio Lainez Jr admissions Diversity Under tire " PlaintilTs challenge the discriminatory components of UC BerJKeley ' s admissions process and its definition of academic merit... " This is an excerpt of the lawsuit filed against the University over racial admissions issues. UC Bci-keley. once recognized lor its diversity, has come under increasing criticism tor the reduction in admissions of minority applicants. This recent lawsuit is unique in that it doesn ' t directl attach Proposition 209 as many other lawsuits have, but instead at- tacks the newly created admissions policy of UC Berkelc), which was changed in accor- dance with Resolution SP-I . adopted by the UC Regents to eliminate affirmative action in the University system alter the passing of Prop. 209. The plaintiffs of this lawsuit are " Atrican American. Chicano Latino, and Pilipino American past and future applicants for admission to UC Berkeley " (Lawsuit text.) They are represented by well-known organizations such as the NAACP and ACLU. This lawsuit contends that the policy of UC Berkeley " grants unjustified preferential consideration to applicants who have taken certain courses that are less accessible in high schools attended largely by [the plaintiffs |. " and that the policy allows and encourages the admissions officers to stress standardized test scores and to " make judgements based i I features on educationally insignificant dilTercnccs in test scores.

The law- suit is based on litle 1 v the Ci il Rights Act of 19b4 and the Fourteenth Amcnil- nient to the Lnited States Constitution. It states that the school has not justified its current criteria for admissions and that changing the policv. w hich had mitigated the impact of the other components of the admissions policy before Prop. 204. is dis- criminatory. The University ' s position is that ihc ha e the fairest polic possible within the constraints of the law. The administration ' s point is that since the law prohibits the " explicit use of race and ethnicity as a criteria for admission. " (Resolution .SP-1 ). they are not able to admit minority applicants by the former criteria. Ac- currently unable to change the admissions policies to guarantee such results. The school feels that the decrease in minority admis- sions is a rcnection of the problems with the K- 1 2 system. Because of disparities in the education that students receise. they are not as competitive when appl ing to college. According to University ol- ficials. affirmative action used to bridge the gap between disad- vantaged students and the lest. but it has been eliminated. Since it is gone, the Universitv must find dif- ferent wa s to addiess the problem, such as using outreach program to increase the qualitv of educatiim lor disadvantaged students. lAcn though many student groups on campus are dedicated to this cause, the Liniversitv fecL that the se)lution needs to go lur- ihei ' .

The University is concerned that collective bargaining woidd disturb the graduate students ' learning experience as an instructor Working Rights By Diana Chai REVERSING A 16-YEAR OPPOSITION TO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING FOR GRADUATE STUDENT instructors. UC President Richard Atkinson announced on March 25, 1999 that the UC campuses with GSIs will hold elections to see if graduate students want to unionize. " The unixersiiy v ill not oppose the board ' s decision to order these elections and ' ill respect the choice made by the students at each campus, " said Atkinson. These events follow the court ruling that teaching assistants are employees with union rights. The graduate students at UCLA have since voted to be represented by the Student Association of Graduate Employees Union. The reversal of position also marks the end of a long struggle to gain collective bargain- ing rights on the part of the students. Many of the GSI ' s aren ' t griping about money, but power. Graduate students want to be recognized for the work they put into leaching students and the imporiance of their role. Many GSIs feel that they are undervalued and overworked. " I know I ' m being taken advantage of, " said Anni Kirkland, a legal studies GSI. Kirkland goes on to say, " I am definitely a student. But 1 am also a worker who is giving the University something valuable. " Graduate students teach 10 percent of the primary classes and 7b percent of the discussion sessions. Al- though they are paid for 20 hours of work per week, they often irk ihicc times that amount. GSIs do much of the grading in classes and are an integral part of undergraduate education. Maii cmly want to have the rights of a working group who con- iributes [o the University, including the right to unionize. A 4- da strike from December I to December 4, 1999 was aimed at gaining public awareness of these problems. Many graduate stu- dents were seen picketing around Sproul plaza and other heavily trafficked areas of campus. Although it was feared that the strike would interrupt undergraduate education around finals time. •f many GSIs continued to hold office hours. The strike was ended " i after a bO day cooling off period was agreed upon. The University ' s position is that the work graduate stutlents 7 features do is puit of their learning cxpeiicnce. Accoiding ui Dclira Harrington, the purpose oi ' graduate sehool is to train the graduate students for roles as future i ' aeultv. The role of a graduate student instruetor is modeled after the role ot a stu- dent instruetor in piiniar and secondary educational settings. It gi es the GSTs experience " in the field. " While teaching courses or discussion sessions, the students gain subject knowl- edge and participate in work with the laculiv. The University feels that collective bargaining is " not appropriate " for this educational setting, according to lesus Mena oi the Public Re- lations Office.

The graduate student at Berkeley are the highest paid out all public univer- sities, including those in which graduate students are unionized. According to a fact sheet published bv the University, onlv four private universities, out ol 1 1 that compete with Berkelev for graduate stu- i dents, pay higher stipends to graduate stu- I dents. There is also a grievance procedure ' for GSI ' s with concerns, lesus Mena said that the University recognizes that there are legitimate issues in certain units where the graduate students carry a lot ol the load, but they feel that this can be handled internalh and doesn ' t require a union. On .April 27-29. the graduate students voted to unionize. .Approximately 70 percent of GSI ' s voted for the union with about a 70 percent turnout at the elections. The Universitv will still reserve the right to make decisions about acadeniic judge- ment, but w ill bargain over employment issues.

Act Up Fight Back copy by Diana Chai FIGHT BACK THE ' DID. BERKELEY STUDENTS, BOTH IN THE ETHNIC STUDIES DEPARTMENT and oul. showing the fire and passion that characterized iheir predecessors in the 60 ' s and 70 ' s by rallying to save the dwindling ethnic studies department. Through protests, rallies, and hunger strikes, students gained . community support and awareness, which uliimately led to an " agreement with the University to strengthen the department through y funding and the hiring of new professors. Reminiscent of past demonstrations, the protests started on the 50 year anniversary of the creation of the ethnic studies department. Ethnic studies at Berkeley was the first of its kind at Universities across the nation. It was created as a result of stiikes by the Third World Liberation Front in the spring semester of 1 969. The Third World Strike lasted for over two months and crippled the campus. Numerous clashes occurred between students and police during the takeover of campus and continued until an agreement was reached. Students once again feel that ethnic studies is being threatened. A pamphlet handed out by protestors claimed that the program is in a " state of regression " and is " near extinction. " According the pamphlet, there are currently no full-time Native American Studies professors, and by next year, there will only be one full time professor in the Chicano Studies department. Retiring professors are not being replaced. A letter to student leaders states that the department recently received a $300,000 budget slash ( 1 3 of its overall budget), forcing the cancellation of 1 5 ' v of its undergraduate classes including Latino Politics. Chinese American History, People of Mixed Racial Descent, Making Histoi Making " Indians, " and Intro lo Lesbian. Gay, and Bisexual studies. Chancellor Robert Berdahl disagrees with the piotestors ' claims. " It is not accurate to say there has been a whittling away. " he lold the DaiK Californian.

Within the Iranicwuik ol " university pfueesses overseen by the Department, the Dean and the Budget Committee of the Aeadeniie Senate, the Provost, and the Chaneellor, the Chaneellor supports 8 FTE searehes during the next five years. Three of the non-tenured vacancies are authorized for immediate searches. B. The University will provide, at a niininiuin. the annual resources necessary to sustain ihc curricular offerings at a level consistent with the average of the Ethnic Studies Department ' s offerings over the past five years. C. The Chancellor ' s Office will provide seed money of $100,00 per year for five years for an institute of race and gender studies, with the target of beginning funding on luly 1 . 1999. D. The administration will review the equity of space allocation available to the Ethnic Studies Department. II. Supporting Student Diversity A. The Chaneellor has already agreed to tnake an annual commitment of S90.000 for student recruitment efforts. Subject to an agreement between the students Recruitment and Retention Centers and the Ethnic Studies Department, the University may allocate up to 540,000 per year of those funds available to the Ethnic Studies Department for outreach to community college students. B. The University will identify temporary space for a multi-cultural center with the expectation that it will be available by Fall. 1999.] C Subject to the nomial review of campus art. the University will appro c a mural for a wall in the space occupied by Ethnic Studies in Barrows Hall. III. Agreement Regarding Student Conduct Issues Students who were cited and released no more than two tiine. and have no prior Student Conduct violations, will receive letters of admonishment. The remaining students will go through the normal students conduct process. IV. Monitoring the Agreement .A.

In this document, the administratjon points out that despite an eight-year reduction in the number of students tnajoring in Ethnic Studies, they have continued to supply " generous funds for temporary acadetnic staff members (lecturers brought in to teach while permanent faculty members are on leave or not teaching). " In addition, the administration anticipates that the funding for temporary staff members, currently $850,000, will not change next year. The University stresses that it has fully supported Ethnic Studies since it began in 1969. On April 14.1 999. students took over Barrows hall in protests. During the 10 hour ordeal that ensued, students filled the halls with chants. " You see diversity, we see hypocrisy " " Hey. hey. ho. ho. this racist bullshit ' s got to go!

On April 29. students began a vigil in front oi Calilornia Hall, and 6 students went on a hunger strike. They held cultural events and other infomiational rallies three times a day. These acts drew the attention of many, and suppoit tor the students increased. Students pledged to continue until all their demands were met.

On May 4. 85 students and supporters in Iront of California Hall were arrested.

It ' s a time ehaiaeterized by the traffic jams caused by cars full of belongings waiting to unload in front of the residence halls, and by the long lines of nervous looking freshmen waiting to receive their room keys and meet their roommates for the first time. Dorm life is what identifies many students ' first year at college. It is where friendships will be formed, and where much of the student ' s free time will be spent, at least until they adjust socially to the new environment. For most of the students in line, this is the first time that they have lived away from their parents, had to do their own laundry, and had to deal with the responsibilities that independence brings. On-campus housing provides a safe and friendly environment in which students can adjust to college life and all the changes it brings. It is. in essence, the transition from living with your parents, to living on your own. by Diana Chai On campus, there are seven dormitories and the University Village, specially built for student families. These seven dorms are Units 1 .2. and 5. Foothill. Bowles. Stern, and Clark Kerr. These seven residence halls house about 5000 of the University ' s students. Each room has a bed. desk, dresser, and closet for each resident, in addition, each room is equipped with a phone line, free cable services, and an ethernet link that provides fast links to the Internet without tying up the phone lines. Rooms are generally doubles, but there are also triples, quads, singles, and suites. Although cleaning the room is up to the students, the bathrooms are cleaned by the housing staff-one of the biggest differences cited by students now living off-campus. Also included in the housing package is a meal plan that provides the students with meals in any of the dining halls in the dorms and at the various on-campus restaurants. Meal plans vary, and the choices provide students with the tlexibility of choosing the plan that best suits their needs. In addition to providing a room and dining facilities, the residence halls also provide many services for the students living in their facilities. The students in the seven residence halls have access to the hall ' s academic centers which provide tutoring, group study programs, and computing centers. Furthermore, the dormitories are well- staffed with continuing students who can help with almost any problem that may arise. The Resident Advisors (RA) are generally around to give advice. They live in the dorms and run programs to educate students on social issues as well as to allow students to get to know each other better. The Health Workers are equipped with first aid supplies, as well as information on health issues. They are trained to help out in a medical emergency as well. Computing Assistants are available to fix computer problems: security monitors watch the entrances to the halls to maintain safety at night. The list just goes on. With all these services, it ' s no wonder that some students choose to spend all 3 features four years in the dorms. Unfortunately, there is not enough housing for everyone who re- quests it. Most students agree that there is a need for more on-eampus housing. .At a town meeting on February ■). 199 ' -). many students attended in order to voice these concerns. The fundamental problem is that there is a lack ol space in iVMkeiey for new housing. The University f ousing Services is currenih looking into possible sites for new housing. According to Chris llar c . the coordinator for this plan, they are still in the master plan- ning stages. Some potential sites include the corner of Channing and Howdiich where a 200 bed dorm ma be built, and the Corner of College and Durani. which is being con- sidered for a 90 bed apartnicni. The new housing will not only help with the shortage of living spaces for students. It will also de- crease traffic problems around the Lnivei- sity by reducing the number of students com- muting to campus. The Berkeley commu- nit is supporiixc ul these jilans. .A stud will be conducted to determine the leasibil- it of the various options. Then approval from the Uni ersit must be obtained belore an architect is hired and building begins. The soonest that the dorms will be open is the fall of 2002. For now. the students, and the Berkele community, will just have to put up with the housing shoitage. and do their best to get along.

The brothers in my Iraternity split iniu small gfoups in order to do various brother- hood activities. These would give us a chance to get to know the other members of our group better. It just so happened that every person in my group was at the house on Friday evening after we had our weekly Barbecue. It seemed like a great opportunity to do our activity, and the suggestion came up that we head over to Stanfurd for a little while and see what we could do to disturb the peace and serenit of the campus. We armed ourselves with cans of Santa Snow, with thoughts of " Go Bears! " written all over the Stanlurd campus running through our heads. Before heading out. two ol our fellow brothers who weren ' t in our group decided to come along for the trip. None of us could pass up the opportunity ol taking a part in the lengthy rivalry between our two schools. Our spirits were even higher, because the annual Big Game was only a month away. Five of us left our house that night, not know- ing that we soon would stumble upon the sacred Stanfurd Tree and become permanent fixtures in the long and historic rivalry between Cal and Stanfurd. Before we reached the Stanfurd campus, we decided to go by code names, to make the trip a bit more exciting. We chose to go by various colors. Mr. White. Mr. Black. Mr. Green. Mr. d- low. and myself. Mr. Orange. Two se- niors, a junior, a sophomore, and me; the only fresh- man of the group. It was a brand new experience for me. I had onl been to Stanfurd once in my whole life, so the thought of taking a trip over there was a truly exciting prospect. I had just recently become a new brother of my fraternity. Theta Chi. and I looked forward to doing something with a few older guys about whom I knew ver little. I soon found out that my four fellow brothers and I shared one major characteristic: school spirit. When we got to The Farm, we saw a couple searchlights in the sky Curious as to what was going on. we tollowed them to their source, eventually finding ourselves at the basketball stadium. It just so happened that the basketball team was having their first practice of the season that night, something called " Midnight Mad- ness. " The live of us decided to go in and see if there was anything we could do. In the process of watching the basketball team miss shot after shot, we saw the Stanfurd Tree, the googly-eyed. ugly looking excuse for a team mascot. Not thinking too much about it at the time, we hung aiouiul until the e ent was over. After the practice, standing around in the parking lot, we saw the same tree features being iiK) cd Ironi ihc --tadiuin iiilo a iicaib car.

And this year is no exception. At 2410 Warring Street is where you will find them, where the University Students ' Cooperative Association (USCA) has opened the first gay. lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) themed co-op on the West coast. Named for the gay British author Oscar Wilde, the Wilde House was foimerly the Delta Sigma Phi fi-aternity house. It was purchased b the USCA and completely remodeled over the sum- mer and tall at a cost of $500,000. It houses 58 students, 1 9 women and 1 9 men. the equal ratio required of all co-ed co-ops. And not all of the residents arc gay. since it is not a condition to li e there. The creation of the house was not easy. There was the initial reaction. " What?!? A GLBT house? Preposter- ous! Like everyone who listened to Einstein when he said ' e equals mc squared ' . ..e equals mc squared? P repos- terous! " explained Robert Schwagger. the Wilde house manager, who was a key player in gaining support for the house during its conceptual development. Schwagger said. " I had the opportunity to talk to some ot the ' queer- leadership ' people, asking [them] ' do you think people would support this? Do you think I could fill a house this way? ' and I got extremely positive feedback, and I thought ' wow. if 1 got the ball rolling on this, it would pietty much happen by itself. ' Of course, that was not to be. It just was the beginning of a very long campaign to get this approved. It took about a month or two — we were very annoying about it — we got the signatures of people who were willing to move in if the house would be affirmed, of people who would support it. We called board reps, we called the room- mates of board reps, we called everybody we knew who knew a board rep, we went to house council meetings, pretty much we did everything that ou realh need to do in order to get something approved in the LOCATED ON WARRING STREET, the former Delta Sigma Pin fraternity house has been transformed into the Oscar Wilde House, the first co-op on the west coast with a gay. lesbian. bisexual, and transgender theme. v VbJuili 4 (■ J V, features USCA.

" The USCA has been known for setting precedents in other areas in addition to housing. This year they have switched to green power, which is similar and hvdroclcctric electricity that is better lor the environment, and purchasing organic food, which prevents the use ol harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Controversy by Diana Chai AS OF lANUAR ' 1, 19 9. VACANCY ' RENT CONTROL was a thing of the past. Many fear that alToidable student housing went with it. The Costa-Hawkins Aet. a law passed in 1995 and implemented in full this yeaf, leversed the foniier Berke- ley vacaney eontrol policy. Befoie. landloids could only laise prices on vacant apartments as much as the Rent Board, a panel of elected representatives, dictated. Now, owners are allowed to increase rent as much as they please after an apartment is vacant. Many students fear that this will cause prices to increase dra- matically. " One sticking point that evcr one will have to face is the law of supply and demand - if demand is greater than supply, prices will go up, " writes Willy Le, a UC Berkeley student, in a letter to the editor of the Daily Califortiiaii on Februar 2. 1999. With the high intlux of freshmen, and the decrease in the number of rooms available to continuing students, many are searching for off-catn- pus housing. " It ' s not likely that Berkeley students will simph turn down apartments because rents are too high. " Le continues. This creates demand, but supply has not increased. There aren ' t new apartments that students can rent. Part of the problem are the zoning laws that may impede the effort of new developers who may want to build in Berkeley according to R. Kckelar of UC Ex- tension. The expected results are that prices will inllate. Curreml . the average price for a one-bedroom apartment is ap- proximately 900 dollars; the price of a two-bedroom can be up to 2000 dollars, depending on the area it is in. " Prices are so high. I ' m really concerned students cannot afford it. " says Dana Goodell, presi- dent o[ Homefinders, to the .)( )■ Califoritiaii. For man students, this price rcalK is too high, but there are a lew options. They can always live in a co-op or a Greek house, if they are members, but these resources aren ' t available for all students. The onK other option is a long commute. In any case, the high prices of the apartments are feared to have a negati e impact on man students ' li ing situations. The student renters do have some rights. Original tenants, c cn if their name isn ' t on the original lease, can ' t be evicted. This policy is to prevent landlords from evicting tenants to reap the benefits of vacancy decontrol and the inllatcd prices that it could features bring. This, however, only applies to current lennnts. For the influx of new students renters, the prices can still lie raised. Supporters of the Costa-Hawkins Act state that students will actually benefit from the acanc decontrol. Robert Cabrera, presi- dent o Berkeley Properly Owner ' s Association cites the fact that since rent control decreased in 1 )88. the proportion of student households in Berkeley has increased from ' ) ' y to 44 percent, the average number of persons per room has decreased, and the num- ber of commuting students has decreased. He feels that the land- lords will now stop favoring long-term tenants o cr students. Land- lords, such as Peggy Schioler. feel that punitive rent control showed ■ ' neither appreciation nor compassion lor housing prmiders. but iicaicd them as criminals. " With rent control, the alue of their property and profits " plummeted. " stales Schioler in a Ictici to the Duily Califuniiiiii. For landlords, the end of rent coniiol means the return o( lair pricing and being able to account for inllaiion. R. Kekelar. in another letter to the editor of the Daily Califor- iiiuii. contends that the prices ma increase in the sluMt lun, thus landlords will be limited b what tenants are willing to pa . He argues that developers will start coming into the market due to the competiti e market allowed by vacancy decontrol, and increase the suppl of housing, which will in turn decrease prices, Cabrera. Schiolei-. and Kekelar all agice that zoning law changes will need to occur before developers will come in lull force, and that supply is needed to keep prices low. Until developers come in. prices may remain high. According to an agent for Rental Solutions, prices are increasing e ery day. For students, it ma mean nuning to nearby communities where housing is cheaper, rushing for a fiaternit or a sororitx. or joining a co-op. Fver one w ill have to ride out this wave of high prices until the benefits ol acanc tlecontrol. so touted by supporters ol the act. are seen. TO MEET student demands, apartments are built on top of stores, as in the case of this building on Telegraph. The wait lists for such prime locations are exceedingly long. EVEN THOUGH apartments such as these line the streets surrounding Berkeley. there is still not enough room to accomodate the increasing number of Berkeley students. IN THIS relatively nen ' building on O.xford and Hearst, a iwo- bedroom junior is S 1450 a month without ulilities. Prices tend to he higher on the north side of campus. Still. one student had to wait two months for Rental Solutions to find her a place. rent control CAL PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION formed a partnership with the Bay Area Quality Management District, the California Air Resources Board, and the California Energy ' Commission this year to upgrade CC Berkeley shuttle engines in an effort to improve the local air quality. The first of these upgraded shuttles. Campus Conductor 92. was introduced at this ceremony on . ovemher 1 7. 1998. The upgraded shuttles utilize a new technology developed by W ' estport Innovations and the University of British Columbia at Vancouver The technology uses a natural gas fuel injector in the die sel engine cycle in order to decrease pollutants emitted by the engine while maintaining engine efficiency. UC Berkeley is currently the only institution in the world to utilize the technology. More of the fleet ' s diesel engine shuttles are expected to be converted to be compatible with the technology. .Is it is. the three Cal shuttles currently operating on the IIPDI technology ' have already made an impact on Cal ' s commitment to keep the Berkeley environment clean. ml Gas Test Bus DA J D CASH, JR. received a less than warm welcome back to school this year, after his frieitd was involved in the rape and murder case of a seven year old girl in Las Vegas.

I went on a walk-along, and I have to admit that I am impressed with the professionalism of the entire organization. Each officer is in unil ' orm and carries a radio which thc arc trained to use. They understand all of the police codes and are completcK familiar w iih the campus and the surrounding areas. As we walked, the officer kept a keen eye on our surroundings. Although the officer was attentive to my questions, he was also alert to radio communications and changes in our environment. Several times, he paused and communicated with the dispatcher about his route. With their experience in patrolling at night, they can literally discern movements in the shadows and notice people hiding in the dark. Only one incident occurred during the hour and a half that I was with the officer. A one-car accident occurred near the LIndcrhill parking lot. The CSO immediately radioed in the incident and called for police assistance. He then contiollcd the situation by making sure that all the passengers and witnesses were safe. The police showed up I in less than two minutes, and the CSO directed traffic until the police had a features chance to ask some questions. Other tlian that minor incident. the night was very quiet. The CSC) iu ' i pairolied the campus and escorted people to their destinations. He was always courteous to the people he was escorting. When asked il the job ever gets lonely, the CSO answered that it does not because there are always people to talk to ani.1 things to think about. The community service otTicer program operates much like a police unit does. There is a chain of command with the 45 or so CSOs at the bottom ol the chain and Sergeant Karen .Mbens. the program coordinator and onh police ol ' l ' icei ' in t he program, at the top.

The escort patrol is a group of officers available to walk students anywhere within the patrol ' s boundaries. They also keep an eye out for suspicious acti ' ities on campus. Each CSO has to go through 5-6 weeks of training before they are set out on their own. The training starts with 5-b hours of classroom time, which invoUes teaching the new recruits the basic mechanics of the program and the rules that protect them. They have to pass a series of written tests and must he able to identify every building on campus as well as all the blocks within their boundaries.

Glenn Seaborg will be re- membered as a biilliant scientist, an inspiring teacher, a devoted public servant, and lastly, as a kind, gentle and unassuming per- son, " said Alexis Bell, dean of the College of Chemisir . Glenn Seaborg truly made an impact here at Berkeley and in the world. To Beikele . he was a professor of 60 years, a former chancellor, and the associate director-at-large ol the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories. To the world, he v as ehainiian ol the Atomic Energy Commission, the leader of the Man- hattan Project group that devised the chemical extraction processes used to produce plutonium during World Wai II. the 1951 Nobel Piizc winner in Chemistry, and a propiment of nuclear disarmament. Chancellor Beidahl summed it up when he said. " He came |to Ber- keley] in 1954 as a graduate student enchanted b ' the pt)ssibilities of science, and he leaves us today a legend in his ov n right. " Seaborg was born in 1912 in Ishpeming, Michigan. He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 1 and received his bachelor ' s in chem- istry from UCL.- in 1954. He earned his Ph.D. in chemistr from Berkeley in 1957 and joined the lacult in 1959. He was a profes- sor at Berkeley for nearly 60 years. His interests were in the isola- tion of new chemical isotopes. In 1941. he and his Berkeley col- leagues isolated plutonium. The next ear. he was appointed head of the plutonium chemistry group of the Manhattan Project where His service to this campus is equaled only by his service to this country. -Chancellor Berdahl he worked on the separation of plutonium. During this time, Seaborg continued to add to his list of discoveries. He married Helen Lucille Griggs in 1942 in Nevada. In 1946, he was back in Berkelex, continuing his research on " superheav " elements. Seaborg holds oxer 40 patents on chemical elements and has had elements named for Berkeley, California, and himself. He shared the 1951 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with the late Edwin McMillan for their wurk on " transuranium elements. " In addition to his scientific accomplishments, he was also in- oKed in public policy. " As an educator he inspired thousands of students to become interested in chemistiy and its applications, and as a public speaker he helped develop an awareness of the impact of science on dail life and the importance of non-pro- liferation of nuclear weapons, " Alexis Bell, dean of the College of Chetnislry said of Seaborg. Fur- thermore, as a member of the Franck Committee. Seaborg wrote to President Harry Truman and suggested a demonstration of the bomb instead of dropping the bomb on japan. He also had a hand in the e ents leading up to the signing of the Limitetl Test Ban Treaty He served 10 years as the chaimian of the Atomic Energy Commission after Kennedy appointed him in 1961. " His service to this campus is equaled onl by his service to this country. " said Chancellor Berdahl. at Seaborg ' s memorial on March 27.

Brian Ree and other students read their poems aloud in the Poetry for the People Readings. By Eric Wong ON A SUNm ' WEDNESDAY IN THE FOOTHILL ASSEMBLY ROOM. A STUDENT- teacher poet (STP) from " Poetry For the People " gives an unconventional interpre- tation ol ' tiie Bible as a souree of political power. In a class that teaches that poetry and political consciousness are intertwined, the students learn that many black slaves in the pre-Civil War America turned to the Bible for inspiration to stand up against the institu- tions of slavery. Lectures like these consistently deal with people who do not have a voice, such as the Nigerian and North Korean people. " I was really impressed with all of [the lectures!. " says lackie Graves, a graduate from Mills college, " especially about Christianity and the reinterpretation of widely known Bible verses, like turning the other cheek . . . It ' s another wa ' of looking at it as advanc- ing social action in a very creative way. and it makes me think about how to be a creative social activist. " Conceived by Professor lune lordan five years ago. the aim of " Poetry For the People " is for students to learn the power of poetry by using it as a medium to actively express their political views. The majority of the class involves the interaction between trained STPs and new students, instead of focusing solely on the professor ' s lectures. For instance, another STP. Uchechi Kalu. lectured on the Nigerian Civil War and shared a poem she had written both in Igbo. her native language, and in English. Afterwards, students in small groups discuss with their STPs their reactions to her poetry, especially in relation to simi- J academics larly ihemod poems from olhcr cultures. Sometimes, the STPs also ask the students to write poems in two languages. The STPs tr to help the students write elTeeiively. based on " Poetry For the People ' s " guidelines and on literary examples in the course reader. These guidelines helped David Lai. a first year electrical-engineer- ing major, hone his writing craft. He explains: " They give us topics and 1 just think about them and I get an idea for a poem. Afterward, I make changes to meet these rules, such as not using certain words and erb lorms. And o I try to get ihc language that 1 can make the most impact with, like trying to be more descriptive. The rules make me think more about what liii writing, rather than just ' wiiting. ' I like it more shen I ' m able to say more than in general — to be more focused and precise, using stronger verbs and adjectives. " During the semester, as the students ' skills develop, they have the opportunity share their work with people in the local commu- nity and i idly demonstrate their political convictions. This spring semestei-. " Poetry For the People " intends to sponsor poetry read- ings at Berkeley High School. M-rba Bucna Center for The . rts. and I. a Pena Cultural Center. With this experience, some students will decide to becotiie STPs, so that they can reciprocate the vari- ous benefits they have gained from the class. It is this kind ol academic cause that has brought many of the STPs together, who share Professor |ordan " s desire to mobilize people for political ac- tion through the emotional and intellectual power of poetry. Ciel ' ogis. a recent English graduate with a Creative Writing minor relates how the class helped her become an effective STP for her student peers: " 1 think last semester was the biggest period I for Poetry For the Peoples grow th j. with twenty of us and lune, " she remembers. " From being able to w ork outside in Berkeley High doing public readings to going to a San Francisco book fair with lune. we were really like a group of teachers who are going out and working together as colleagues, " Now, the class gets more serious and it ' s expanding each se- mester. More people are interested in taking our class, and we ha e all these high schools who are coming and trying to recruit us to come and teach. . nd as we reach out in the Bay Area, that means there will be poetry for the people, the community right now in ik ' rkelev. and in the high schools.

A BRIGHT yellow display cabinet, some boxes of miscellaneous electronics and a fast computer suiTound this artist ' s office. But there are no paintbrushes, no easels and no canvases to be seen. Here, art and technology complement instead of contradict each other, in a new en- ironment known as digital media. Since his arrival in .August at Berkeley. Art Practice Professor Shawn Brixey has been busy meeting with colleagues across campus, setting up his office, teaching a new class and building a new arts laboratory. The Center for Digital Art and New Media Re- search, which is expected to open in |anu- aiT 1999. Brixey say s UC Berkeley is exciting and different from other academic institutions: " It ' s like dancing with an entirely new and innovative partner. " academics In addition to the academic en iionnient. teaching at UC Ber- keley is more challenging, too, because students engage mofc ac- tivel in thinking and questioning. " The students here are bright, inquisitive, and critical think- ers " he says. " But students can often use their critical analysis as a crutch, obscuring the fundamental creative spirit that art teachers work so hard to draw out. 1 work as hard to unlearn ihem as I do to teach them new tools and concepts. " With the advances of technologv ' , the landscape of creative expression is changing so dramatically that artists are posed to inherit an arena of artistic expression that man v ' the traditional tools ha e not prepared them for, says Brixey. As a result, he is teaching art classes to reneci the new technology. He adds that because scientists are increasingly interested in visualizing their data. ' thc are walking into what for eons has been strictly considered the artist ' s domain. " According to Brixey. the computer is just the beginning of where science and art will cross each other ' s boundaries, where the same tools are used, but in different ways. " We share the commonality of tools, but do highly diflerent things with them, " he says, " in today ' s technology culture it ' s natu- ral for artists and scientists to be interested in each other ' s re- search and start to collaboi ' ate. " His current class. New Genre 142, includes 15 students, half ol which arc art majors and the other hall include other majors such as engineering, biology and business. The class focuses on personal experimentation and examines alternati c tools and methods in the creation of new and experi- mental art genres. Next semester. Brixey plans to teach two courses, one on an introduction to digital ideo and the othei ' on temporal structures. The digital video class. .Art 160. introduces students to how digital technologies expand the notion of time and space, value PROFESSOR BRIXEY ' S uebsite features a page that lets its users send electronic postcards of the lchymeia " ice t r -stals to others.

Art 141 is designed to ac- quaint students with the artistic uses of existing time-based struc- tures, both natural and man-made. It can take the shape of per- formance, installation, video, net based art forms, art and biol- ogy, but will focus on creating and articulating new " architec- tures of time " says Brixey. So how can two distinct fields, art and technology, overlap? One example of incoiporating science and art includes creating strat- egies for a blind artist to see images with the help of the Internet. Massachusetts Institute of Technology artist and poet Eliza- beth Goldring is losing her sight because of diabetic retinopathy, which leads to blindness. When her ophthalmologist used a laser to burn the back of the eye to prevent bleeding, he created after- images, in which she immediately recognized artistic potential. Instead of seeing random afterimages, she wanted to see if ones could be created that would be both meaningful art and medi- cally therapeutic. " An artist presented with a crippling disease combines tech- nology with the willingness of her doctor to therapeutically ad- dress her illness, while fulfilling the need to artistic express her- self, " he says. As a result, one can log onto her Web site, create images and deliver them via a Scanning Laser Opthalmascopc into her retina, allowing her to see images people send her. He adds that Goldring ' s " vision. " however, is an artist ' s creation. Another artist with a congenital heart condition can live " in a work of art " without his pacemaker. Gene Cooper uses the natural electricity produced by the earth -- lightning - to stimulate his heart muscles. Through a simple Internet interface, a computer monitors the lightning strikes and sends the earth ' s rhythmic pat- tern of electrical discharge into his body. ■ ■ ' ■f! , ■ ' ■ TlH live ' AleliTmeu video SileCam via push sorrar is currsDUy numiog.

By taking hormone samples from the athletes ' blood and urine, which are used for testing the presence of illegal substances like steroids. Brixey created very delicate ice crystals. " The athlete ' s hormones were injected into pure ultra-water, " he explains. " Without contamination this ultra-pure water doesn ' t know how to freeze. The hormones provide the blueprint to create the ice crystals, and the crystals are bound by the laws of physics to follow the structure of the contaminant. As a result the hor- mones are both the tools to build the art and the art itself. " In nature, no two snowtlakes are alike, yet Brixey says in a laboratory it is possible to create man-made identical snowflakes by using similar technology he developed for the Winter Olympic art piece. This new kind of art is created not by adding or subtract- ing materials the way the making of art is traditionally imagined. Instead, it is created by emulation, art that builds itself, says Bri.xey. Using the same idea, Brixey says in the future something like a house might not be built piece by piece, but rather by emulation technology where one drops a seed, an " intelligent agent, " into the 64 ' academics ground and ii should build itscH uidi programmed instruclions. The first full-time art department hire b the uni ei it sinee l )y9. Brixe says it feels wonderful to be here at Berkeley, yei the job also comes with new pressures. The meta-diseipiinarv nature of his research discipline has him meeting regularl with laculi in man fields ranging from the sciences, humanities to architecture. " My position in the (art) department is eiy isible because of the rebuilding going on here. " he says. As self described " ambassador of digital goodwill " for the visual arts. Brixey says the job is immensels fun but tiring. " Like my other studio arts colleagues. 1 easil log 18 hours of work a day. " he says. " We are heading into a highly digital-visual age and we need artists and visionaries just as equally as we need other professions. " The Digital Media New Genre Program Brixey and his art colleagues are building is starting from the ground up. " I ' m not coming in to clean up an antiquated or abandoned program. " he says. " This is entirch new. we are inventing the cur- riculum, developing the equipment and building laboratories to support research in the arts. " Brixey ' s current goals at UC Berkeley are to build the new program and research center in digital media and new genre. .At the same time, he is busy preparing for the World Exposition 2000. in Hanno er. Germany, a world fair for all people. According to Brixey. the UC systemwide is considering build- ing a system wide Digital .Arts Masters, doctorate program within all the nine campuses -- Bri e is the Berkele representative. An essential ]iait of the new program is the Center of Digital .Alt antl New Media Research, located on the second floor of Kioebei- Mall. Biixey says so far that the construction of the labo- rator has been successful. " BerkelcN has reacted very quickl (more than other uni ersi- ties) at helping me build this program " he adds. " The Dean of .Arts and Humanities Ralph f-lcxter has been extraordinary supportive of not only m needs as an artist and researcher but also under- stands the larger picture of emerging arts technologies. " Brixey is also involved with designing a large scale " telepresence " art installation for the Expo. The project entitled " Epicycle " uses 24 " live " Internet video transmissions of the sky just abo e the horizon from each of caith ' s 24 times zones and will transmit images of the sun ' s position in " real-time " to the exhibition. Because every point in time " on earth " is telepresent in Epi- cycle, the project essentially re-maps - digitally - the axis of earth ' s rotation to Hannover, says Brixey. " Instead of just being telepresent in one place, you ' re telepresent everywhere at once " he says, it ' s kind of like being omniscient. Images for " Epicycle " will be taken from mostly the Northern Hemisphere where there is more light in the summer time. In ad- dition, the land masses arc contiguous. Brixey says and so cameras and computers for the project won ' t have to be placed on boats, where they will " bob up and down.

Interx ' iew and photos by Dan Thomas-Glass D; Thank vou both lor joining nic ioda . Id like lo begin wiih a liulo bil ol personal background Ironi the two of you. lust a little history: What your childhood was like, what it was like growing up together. I ID; It was prett fun. .At night we would rexiew the day. and how foolish our parents had been, and laugh and laugh. I ' ve heard from thcni that the would Mt outMdc the door and listen to what we were saying, but they couldn ' t hear what we were saying, only that we were talking about them and laughing and laughing. SD: I remember that we ' d go to bed and I ' d want to talk, and I ' d say " Bert. " or " Hubert. " and you wouldn ' t answer, you ' d pretend lo be asleep. Then I ' d say " Oh good. Hubert ' s asleep, now I can talk about him. " Then you would suddenK wake up. .Anyway. we grew up in Indiana, and went through public high seht)ol in Indiana. Bert is two years older, and willingly went off to Harvard; 1 went off unwillingly. I wanted to stay in our small Indiana town with m friends who all went to local schools. But my mother said. " No. you ha e to go away to Harvard. If alter one year you want to came back, and go to school here, you can do that. " Well after one year I didn ' t e en want to go home during vacations. D; 1 know our two fields are at what might be considered opposite ends of the spec- trum, academically. Was that something that you knew in high school, or earlier, or much later? HD; I always wanted lo be a physics major, and I was one up to the middle of my junior year. Philosophy was something I ' d never even heard of in high school: one never has. It was onlv when I discovered that I couldn ' t do physics as well as my room mates that brothers dreyfus I saw that one of them got an A minus in this humanities eourse we took together, the only A minus he got, and I got an A in that one. Somehow or other that seemed to be a sign of something. And in the end. 1 took a phi- losophy course from a very famous piiilosopher. C.R. Lewis, a Kant course. That interested me a lot. and I switched from physics and wrote my undergraduate thesis on " Causality and Quantum Mechanics. " because I knew a little bit about Quantum Mechanics at that point and was very interested as to whether Einstein was right that Quantum Mechanics was wrong. In those days that seemed a more plausible possi- bility than it does now. though I still hope that Einstein was right and Quantum Physics is all wrong. So that ' s my story. 1 cei- tainly never started out to do phi- losophy. SD: 1 knew I was destined to be a math major Mainly be- cause friends of Bert ' s told me 1 should be a math major, ' cause I was lazy and math majors are lazy. The argument he used was that if you ' re good at it. it ' s an easy sub- ject. There are no labs, there ' s no reading. If you go to lecture and understand it then that ' s all there is to it. 1 did have an aptitude for un- derstanding it. D: What about your interest in artificial intelligence? SD: 1 ended up working at Rand corpora- tion in about 1954, and artificial intelligence was just getting started. One of the earliest papers published in the field was by [Herbert A.] Simon, who was one of the founders of the subject. In it he made four famous predictions. One of the predictions was that within ten years a computer would be world chess champion. Now. I played chess a lot and I respected the game and 1 didn ' t want to be told that. .Any- way, my memory is that this article, which he wrote in about ' 57. so offended me. partly be- cause I knew from the inside that up to that point they hadn ' t accomplished anything; it was all based on hubris. So 1 think I told Bert that this is annoying and ridiculous that people are saying these things, and 1 think 1 encouraged him to look at it. At about the same time, maybe a year or two after that. 1 arranged for Rand to bring him out. to spend a few weeks talking to the people there doing the work, and kind of educating himself further about it. Anyway, he ultimately gave a lecture at Rand, called " Al- chemy, and Artificial Intelligence. " in which he argued that Al was as hopeless as alchemy I think that ' s the answer to your question. 1 knew Simon ' s claims weren ' t based in fact and I didn ' t want to believe them, so I called in Bert to do battle. HD: That ' s right. But I also wrote to Stuart that 1 was teaching Merlot-Ponty. and that if Merlot-Ponty was right in that kind of phenomonology. then you couldn ' t use rules, as they were trying to do, use rules and fea- tures to make a machine intelligent. Stuart men- tioned that to the guy that was in charge of his division or whatever it was. who said " Isn ' t that strange, my brother just wrote saying I had better read Merlot-Ponty before 1 commit money from a division to support this work in Artificial Intelligence, because according to Merlot-Ponty it ' s not going to work. " Stuart immediately said, " Well why don ' t we get my brother out here as a consultant, and see whether from a Merlot- Ponty point of view this is wrong or right. " SD: .Around the same time 1 wrote a critique of artificial in- telligence in which 1 told about the very early days of chess pro- gramming, when I played chess with a computer; it was a funny game because the computer made very bad moves from the beginning and after about four or five moves I was getting control of the center See. after ev- ery move the computer would print out a sche- matic of the position, where everything was at that point. After about the sixth move, it printed out a schematic showing that I had an extra rook on the board, out there in the middle somewhere. So 1 thought about it and decided it wasn ' t ethical to take advantage of this, so the next three moves the computer sneaked up and took the rook, very happily, getting into an academics even worse position. At that point, the com- puter inaving wasted all it ' s moves capturing the rook. I had a force mate in two moves. The computer printed out another schematic, and it had given itself and e.xtra rook to block the mate! The game never was completed, in the article I just told that story. So Simon saw mc after I published this article and sort of cor- nered me one da in the halls of Rand, and lit- eralls turned red and shook he was so upset. He said that people would think that comput- ers had to cheat. IID: Then I wrote a paper that fell into the hands of Peter Brooker, who apparentl told Harper and Row that they should get me to write a book out of it. so they came to me and said " hey. write a book " , so 1 wrote What Com- piitcrs Can ' t Dn. So then I was into the .Al thing lull blast fur a w liile. because everyone was criti- cizing me. and I was on a NO ' .- program about Al. I became the one person they could find who was critical of .Al in those optimistic days, who would say it wouldn ' t work. There would be a dutilul one minute or one paragraph de- voted to my views which from then on would be completely ignored by the reporter. That was what happened in the first NOVA program I was on, which had forty-five minutes, but the second one. which was about eight years ago, I got equal billing. Times had changed, things looked had. and there was only one person they could find who did think it would work, Doug l.anat, and the program remained neutral in the end but it gave the general impression that he was just the last of the fanatics. And that ' s where it stands on A . I think. ■ Gateway to the It is an amazing time to be an engineer. -Dean Paul R.

For the first time in more than 40 years, the College has an- nounced the formation of a new department — the Department of Bioengineering. The new department will integrate Berkeley ' s ex- cellence in engineering, life sciences, physical sciences, and UCSF ' s expertise — an interdisciplinary effort critical to educating bioengineers and achieving breakthroughs in research. Eventually, bioengineering will become a joint Berkeley-UCSF department, one ol the few ever in the UC system. Advancing in another emerging arena of engineering, the Col- lege leads the way in establishing the new interdisciplinary Gradu- ate Group in Ocean Engineering Science. The group ' s faculty and students will explore offshore energj ' production, coastal engineer- ing and protection, and robotic devices for deep-ocean exploration. , nother long-term plan that is coming closer to being realized this year is the reno- ation of the historic Hearst Memorial Min- ing Building, one of the College ' s highest pri- orities for the decade. Construction began this year, following a splendid celebration with faculty, students, alumni, and donors to launch the project in |uly Scheduled for completion in the year 2001 . the $68 million project will stabilize the building and upgrade its seismic safety, plus renovate its inte- rior for the next century ' s teaching and research in the Department of Materials Science and Mineral Engineering. ■ " " " " X A » r iC J5S - tJB« N. • 4S 7( academics MATERIALS SCIENCE PROFESSOR TIM SANDS llefll works with sliulciil Chris Ciiylur to bring new uinlcrsuiinling of tlic properties of electronic niaieriiils. work that will be advanced in the renovated Hearst Memorial Miiiinj; liuilding.

If I didn ' t teach. I would tuin in to a vegetable. " One Tuesday afternoon. Riesenfeld led his coniparati e law class through a discussion of the intricacies of legal systems in such lar-llung countries as Russia. South .Alrica. Brazil. France. Germanx. the United States and the United Kingdom. .Although his students had to follovs ' along with a weight stack of documents. Riesenfeld spoke without notes for almost two hours. He laughed when asked how he did this. He pointed at the stack of analyses. professor riesenfeld " I wrote them. " he syid. Riesenfeld was a remarkable souree of legal history, students say, but he definitely kept up with the times. " A lot of the eourt deeisions we diseuss are quite recent or are still being decided in other countries, " says Mat Fairer, a third- year Boalt student in the comparative law class. Riesenfeld said he read legal journals in several different languages to keep up to date. During class, he showed his stu- dents a German publication and urged them to read it them- selves. According to Shelley Glazer, direc- tor of UC Berkeley ' s retirement center. Riesenfeld was a per- fect example of how emeriti professors could continue to play an active role in university life. " The most won- derful aspect is that students get an op- portunity to meet people who have been a part of histoiy HmjI i iOR RIESENFELD. ilt ' ckeJ In a red ami black rube, gives a speech to his peers and students Uis Misduni u-us impressive to colleagues as well as students. and to see that even in their older years, they are making contributions to the campus and the society at large. " Glazer said. Riesenfeld ' s contributions and expertise have impressed fac- ulty members at Boalt and in other university departments. Rich- ard Brentano. professor of history and current chair of the Aca- demic Senate, met Riesenfeld at the Men ' s Faculty Club in 1952. Brentano, a medievalist, says he was astounded at Riesenfeld ' s range of knowledge. " [Riesenfeld] knew everything about 1 5ih century law and was very witty and sophisticated, " he said. Over the years, Riesenfeld has become an academic role model. Brentano says. " He has been for me a sign of what iniellectuals and lawyers] and historians can be — a combination of scholarship and preci- sion and complete lack of nonsense and silly talk. " he said. Richard Buxbaum. who is the dean of International and Area Studies at UC Berkeley, worked as one of Riesenfeld ' s first gradu- ate student assistants. Buxbaum calls Riesenfeld a " teacher of teach- ers " and says that the time he spent working for the professor inspired him to academic endeavor. " It was the first time I was exposed to what is was like to do research that took you down to bed- rock. " Buxbaum said. " It didn ' t mat- ter what the language was, it didn ' t matter how obscure it was. " But Buxbaum adds that an impor- tant aspect of Riesenfeld ' s career was that he was not solely an academic. He says that though Riesenfeld stressed academic rigor, he also emphasized to students the practical nature of the law. Riesenfeld echoed that sentiment. " It ' s good not to be an ivory tower professor, " he said. " You cannot possibly invent the actualities of life. " Riesenfeld ' s career was filled with instances where he had an impact on very real aspects of the law. He has represented the United States before international tribunals, advised the U.S. State Department on matters of international law and examined the le- gal systems of states such as California. Minnesota, and Hawaii. " I ' m very much interested in improving legislation. " he said. According to Riesenfeld, the appeal of the law is that " there can be a icademics ighcr standards which uliimaR ' l win uui. I ' wn the Icgisiauiic is Libjcct to higher siandai ' ds of justice. The legal system protects le weakei paiiy. " " I lo c litigation. " Rie.senleld added. " Not so tnuch the oral rguiiieiit. but the written argument.

Chemistry Professor Darleane Hoffman was the second woman to win the Priestley Medal — the highest honor awarded by the .American Chemical Society. Chemical engineering was established as a separate depart- ment sithin the College in 1957 and now includes work on such new technologies as processing of electronic components and bio- chemical engineering. The College has strong programs in basic and applied research. including surface science and catalysis, organic synthesis synthetic methods. ph sical chemistry, and environmental and biochemical en- gineeiing. There are many opportunities for undergraduate research. About 65 percent of the undergradu- ate students in chemistr and 50 percent studying chemical engineering move on to ad anced degree programs or professional schools after graduation. The rest tend to move on to the prixate sector, with students in both degree programs finding iobs in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, materials, semiconductor, petrochemical and environmental industries. This year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) gave the College $2b million for seismic safety improve- ments to Latimer and Hildebrand Halls. The College has begun implementing a t vo- ear plan for this construction, and is aggres- sively pursuing outside funding for much-needed laboratory impro ements in concert with the seismic upgrades. Both the chem- istry library and undergraduate labs will be moved during the pe- riod of construction. college of chemistry urster from Urban to Landscape Design By Sheila Dickie THE COLLEGE OF ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN, FOUNDED in 1959, brings together an active community of students, scholars, creative designers and technologists concerned with the built environment and many related aspects of the natural envi- ronment. The college, which includes the Departments of Archi- tecture, City and Regional Planning, and Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning, is one of the largest in its field na- tionally and among the most distinguished internationally. The college is known for teaching planning and design as dis- ciplines that foster critical thinking, research inquiry and imagina- tive problem-solving. Each department continually questions the underlying cultural, scientific and aesthetic assumptions of its dis- cipline and the role they play in how our society formulates solu- tions to the built environment. The Departments of Architecture and Landscape Architec- ture and Environmental Planning offer undergraduate programs that provide unique learning opportunities that combine general education, basic skills and knowledge with a broad introduction to the environmental design professions. Each of the three departments offers a fully accredited pro- fessional master ' s degree program that provides the education and skills necessary for effective professional employment and the criti- cal imagination needed for a lifetime of learning. Several joint master ' s degree programs both within the college and with other top-ranked Berkeley professional schools are also available. The college also offers a Master of Urban Design degree: a unique interdisciplinary program of advanced stud in which ex- ceptional architects, planners and landscape architects can par- take in an intense, focused learning experience of 1 2 months dura- tion. They will share working methods, acquire additional skills, and explore new avenues of development under the supervision of an interdisciplinary group of faculty in the college. 82 academics The program addresses the need lor professionals who are spe- cifically concerned with the design of varied urban areas open to public use. The need for urban designers is as urgent today as in any period of recent history. Worldwde. the cities of both developing and developed countries are struggling with problems of managing rapid growth. Urban design professionals arc as necessary in cities or developing countries where infrastructure and land use patterns are being established as in developed cities, where historical conti- nuity and the reuse of existing sites are major issues. A need exists for designers who are able to work effectively in teams across a large range of scales and with a well-developed understanding of ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN sludenls work luiiiils-on ill the workshop, kicuted on the top floor of Wursler. urban places and the inierdependencies of the fabric of buildings, landscapes, public ways and the social interactions that shape them. Each 1)1 the three departments also offers advanced graduate work leading to the Ph.D. degree as preparation for careers in teach- ing and research, programs for which Berkeley is widely recognized. The Center for Environmental Design Research encompasses a wide range of research projects including the Center for the Built Environmeni (CBE). CBE was established in May 1997 as a Na- tional Science Foundation Industry University Cooperative Re- search Center and is primarily funded by annual contributions from its 1 1 industrial partners plus some additional funding from NSF. college of environmental design A STUDENT coiicenlrutt ' s 01! her studio work. planning and refining her architeetural models. CBE ' s research locus has been on two broad areas: building per- formance evaluation and new technology development. Current research projects include: ( 1 ) The Impact of Team Space Design on Productivity — Field Study with Sun Microsystems. (2) Underfloor Air Supply Plenums. (5) Building Environmental Qual- ity: Evaluation and Benchmarking. (4) Task Ambient Condition- ing Systems. (5) The Impact of Ventilation Control Methods on Productivity. Energy Use. and Health, and (6) Using Occupant Feed- back to Improve Building Operations. The rich array of academic programs is enhanced by a world class lectures series which bring leading practitioners and research- ers to Berkeley from around the world. The active student bod engages in a variety of activities that enliven the cotnmunity such as a Beaux-Arts Ball in the spring and year-round visits to profes- sional firms in the Bay Area. Together with the CED Alumni Asso- ciation they also participate in a very successful mentor program that matches students in all three departments at both the under- graduate and graduate level with professional practitioners. At both the graduate and undergraduate level faculty student collaboration occurs on a regular basis and often includes visits to sites outside of the U.S. In the spring of 1999 an architecture class went to Mexico, and a team from landscape architecture and envi- ronmental planning went to Taiwan to work on an eco-tourism plan in a collaborative effort with the facult and students at Na- tional Taiwan University to save the endangered Black-faced Spoon- bill from extinction. The college is led by Dean Harrison S. Fraker. |r. who came to Berkeley in 199b I ' rom the University of Minnesota, where as head and first dean he founded the College of Architecture and Land- scape Architecture in 1989. bringing together a department of ar- chitecture, a department of landscape architecture and a new De- sign Center for the American Urban Landscape which he started with endowiTient funds raised fiom the Dayton-Hutton Foundation. Dean Fraker chairs the campus Design Review Committee and also serves on the Special Seismic Review Task Force (SAFER). He is considered a leading pioneer in passive solar, daylighting and energy conservation research in buildings. Starting this summer construction will begin on the seismic ret- rofit of Wurster Hall — the first project in Berkeley ' s SAFER Program. The state and the University will invest $27,775 million to make Wurster " life-safe " in the event of a major earthquake on the Hay- ward Fault. The college v. ' ill maintain the high quality breadth and pedagogy of its program throughout the seismic retrofit. Duiing the two year constiiiction period the majointy of the college ' s instruc- tional and administrative functions will be relocated on campus, in- cluding a new pre-engineered Butler building on the Hearst Field. 8 academics College of Environmental Design college of environmental design - m i -.-- tM i t i - 1 .u- , s Jl - -■ A% ; is c » " ■ ' i! .

" Rent eame to San Fianeiseo this year, and tiiey may as well have been singing that song lor Cal athleties. How ean yuu measure the sueeess ol ' an athletie year? How does one sum up everything that went on in the tumultuous months between August and lune ' . ' In the end. 1998-1999 will be remembered in Cal sports as a year of highlights.

It will be a long time before anyone forgets the sight of Geno Carlisle cutting down the net after the amazing NIT champion- ship win over Clemson at Madison Square Garden. But where was the moment that de- fined the year? The only answer may be that there was no one moment that made the year what it was. It is a year that will be remembered for many things, it will be remembered as many things: whatever indi- vidual people or teams will think when the ' remember 1998-1999. overall one thing cannot be disputed: it was a successful year lor Cal Athleties. No one person made it so: the late of the ear never rested on the season of a particular team. It was a school-wide ef- fort, from the NCAA sports all the way down to the intramural sports that had higher numbers of participants than any year previ- ously. Many schools around the country place the weight of a suc- cessful athletie year entirely on their football teams. The 1 998- 1 999 Golden Bear i ' ootball squad proved, if nothing else, that that isn " t true of UC Berkeley. The 1 998 Cal I ' ootball team went 5-fo overall, 3-5 in the Pac- 1 Conference.

However, that sort of offensive output was not the standaid during the ear. The team ' s onl true personalit (and a distuib- ingly high number of its points) came ihioughout the from its conference leading " Hit Squad " defensive unit. The Bears had from the outset the Pac-lO ' s stin- giest defense, but that isn ' t how they earned theii nickname. The Hit Squad moniker came from the pla of linebackers like Mall Beck, the year in sports who, in their refusal to let the lack of points produced by lustin Vedder ' s offense take them out of every game, produced some bone-cruishing tackles. Yes. for a while there the crunches and grunts pro- duced by that hard-working group echoed among the stands of Memorial Stadium (which was voted the best place to watch a college football game in America), and things looked good for a post-season bowl berth. The no offense is only hall a team. The f) kept the Bears close in every game, but close doesn ' t win games, and in the end it was. somehow fittingly, arch-rival Stanford that put the nail in the coffin. How ' s this for statistics: The 101st Big Game, which Cal lost 5-10, was the lowest combined-points total in a Stanford-Cal game since 1948, when Cal deleated Stanford 7-6. Cal ' s 3 points were the tew- est since 1977 when Stanford won 21-5 in Palo Alto. The 1 points scored by Stanford represented the lowest point-total by the Cardinal in any Big Game since 1 965 when Stanford won 9-7 in Palo Alto. Stanford now leads the all-time series 51-59-11 and has won the last four. So there was some consolation for Cal fans: Our offense was a joke, but theirs was barely better. The Cal ground game was grounded. The Bears rushed for -56 yards in the game, the third fewest rushing yards in any game in Cal history. It marks the fewest rushing yards since Cal rushed for -58 yards versus Fleet City on Oct. 21. 1944. Com- bined, the two teams had the fewest rushing yards (- 26 yards) in any Cal game ever played. The previous low for combined rushing yards by two teams was 4 yards (Cal 2. San Diego State 59) on September 18, 1982. Meanwhile, our beloved wide re- ceiver Dameane Douglas set the Pac-10 season reception record, moving into third on the Pac-10 career list. Douglas caught 1 5 passes ( 1 24 ards) in the game, becom- ing the Pac-lO ' s all-time season reception leader with 100 receptions in 1998.

For Men ' s Soccer, the problem was less anything with the team itself, and more with its opponents. Cal plaxed what was considered b man to be the toughest schedule of an team in the US., a schedule that was ranked in the top five by all polls.

Though eight of the 10 losses did come versus Top 25 teams, ultimately the season was still a losing one. and one that did not end in a NCAA tournament appearance for the Bears. This mav ha e been due in part to the injury to California ' s ■ onl four-year starter i Brandon Moggio. who missed the final 1 games).

Cal had sulTered a rash of injuries in the last half of the season and were without the services of its best player, junior outside hitter Brook Coulter, who had a stress fracture in hei- left shin (libia). suffered prior to the Washington matches October 50. Cal was also without the ser ices of sophomore outside hitter lameka Stevens (right shoulder) after Octo- ber 9. Sophomore middle blocker Kelly Meyer and freshman outside hitter Linda lohansson also missed several games due to injuries. Coulter was sorely missed as she was one of the nations top servers, and was leading the Bears in kills and digs before her injui . Coulter had a school-recoixl nine ser- N ' ice aces October lb at Oregon. She currently leads the Pac-10 and is fourth in the nation in service ace average (56 aces. .74). Coulter is also fifth on the Cal all-time service ace list (119) and is third in the conference in dig a erage (5.14). Her 5fa ser ice aces this season was the third-best single-season maik in Cal his- toid. The loss of Stevens also hurt the Bears as she was one of the teams most consisieni players prior to her injury. Stevens had a careei-high 20 kills versus UC Santa Barbara September 5 at the Long Beach State Tournament. Despite playing less than half of the season, she still lini hed fourth on the team in total kills ( 160) and led the team in kill average ( 5.55). Perry took up some of the slack from the ' -injuries and ended up leading the Bears in kills in seven of the last eight matches. She finished with a team-leading 551 kills and 298 digs, and had 15 double-doubles on the sea- son. Perry now has 1 8 double-doubles in her career. She also had the year in sports a team season-high and career-high 25 kills in 65 attempts Novem- ber 1 5 versus Oregon State. Cal ' s lone senior, Sara Waltman. earned first team Pac-10 All-Academic alter being a second team Pae-10 All-Academic selection in 1996 and 1997. Another Bear who is on the Cal all-time list is junior middle blocker Kellie Alva. Alva is currently sixth on the Bears all-time career total block list with 246. She was a member of the Pac- 1 All-Freshman team in 1 996. Fresh- man setter Candace McNamee. a member of the United States jun- ior National Team, was the only player on this year ' s Cal squad to play in every game of every match. McNamee finished with 1101 assists, which is ninth on the Bears all-time career assist list. Her 1101 assists are also the lOth-best single-season assist mark in school history. McNamee had a season-high 52 assists in a October 16 vic- tory at Oregon. As a team. Cal struggled with its net play this season, ending last in the Pac-lO in hitting percentage (.157). kill average 1 15.49) and ninth in blocking (2.09 bpg). The Bears opponents led them in kills ( 1629-1 589), assists (1455-1255), service aces ( 164-1 52). digs (1442-1455) and blocks (285.0-215.0). The Women ' s water polo team, on the other hand, was definitely not in rebuilding mode this ear. Quite the contrar ' . they were shooting for the National Championship, and they almost got it. The team was ranked third nationally for most of the season, and going into the National Collegiate Championship Tournament in May. Unfortunately they were upset in the third place game by No. 4 UCLA. 6-5. in Sudden Death Overtime, and the Bears finished the season in fourth. Their record for the season was 28-7. Four Cal players received All-Tournament honors, lunior Heather Petri earned First Team honors, while junior Colette Glinkowski and sophomore Beth Irwin received Second Team honors.

Cal Baseball ' s 27- 51 (11-15) record does little to tell the story of its season. That is mostly due to the fact that the season was defined by two players in par- ticular: Third Baseman .Xavier Nady and Catcher Mike Tonis. the Sophomore Sluggers. There was for a while hope that the team could make it to the NC.A.A Rcgionals. but their up and down play ulii- maiclv V ielded loo many losses, and the season came to a close with- out any post-season.

Meanwhile, freshman Chris Lewis was the winningest player on this year ' s squad, posting a 16-12 overall record (8-9 in dual matches). Lewis played most of the year at the No. 5 position where he had an even 5-5 dual match record. Golden Bear field hockey, on the other hand, was in the thick of things in the post-season.

On the whole, our beloved Athletic Department has enjo ed one of the most prolific spring seasons in the school ' s history as eight different intercollegiate teams finished ranked among the national Top Five in their respective sports. The amazing success was highlighted by a pair of national championships by men ' s crew and men ' s rugb ' . Other accolades were earned by women ' s Softball which finished tied for third at the College World Series, the women ' s tennis team which tied for third at the NCAA team cham- pionships, men ' s swimming which finished fourth nationally, women ' s swimming which finished fifth, the women ' s crew varsity eight-person boat which finished third at the NCAA Champion- ships, and women ' s water polo which finished fourth. Adding to the list of accomplishments this spring was a national title by the tnen ' s basketball team in the National Invitation Tournament in late March. Still adding to the spring headlines was the second straight national championship for Cal ' s women ' s tennis doubles team of Amanda Augustus and .Amy fensen. Additionally Cal ' s men ' s golf team was one of only 50 teams to earn a berth in the NCAA Golf Finals in Minnesota. " The achievements of our teams in 1999 has been truly un- precedented.

" by Jessica Low IT ' S NOT AN INSURANCE COMPANY, IT ' S THE WOMEN ' S Resource Center (WRC). " a great little geni that very few people know about proportional to the number of students on campus. " said Dorothy Lazard. Information Resources Coordinator for the WRC. The oldest of all of the University of California women ' s centers, the WRC has been on campus since October 1972. and since then has gone through three incarnations. It started as a cen- ter for the continuing of education of women, such as dropouts, divorced housewives, and mothers. Later on in the early to mid 1980 ' s. the focus changed to academics, and the center was headed by women professors on campus who organized conferences, col- loquia. and guest lecturers. In 1986. the purpose of the WRC shifted again to student services, and its purpose at the present is " providing students with leadership opportunities, information resources, and advocacy. " explains Lazard. Now under Student Activities and Services (SAS). the WRC advises new student groups on how to get started, publicize events, and finance activities. " We have a very open door policy, people can walk in and say ' Hey. I ' m lost, I need to get here ' or ' Do you do this? ' and if we don ' t, we send them to another place. " explains Lazard. " very few places are available to [this] level for students, [we] don ' t send away people emptyhanded. " While still focused primarily on women, the WRC might ex- perience a name change to encompass all the different services they offer, and to show that all students can utilize these services. " Trying to appeal to as many students as possible has been one of our goals. " said Lazard. The WRC is an umbrella organization for a variety of student groups such as Sexual Harassment Advocacy and Peer Education (SHAPE, see page 150). the Student Parent Project. Lesbian Ga Bisexual Transgender Student Group Advis- ing (LGBTSGA). the re-entry program, and Women In Support of Each Other (WISE). All these different groups, representative of the diversity at Berkeley, started out as part of the WRC. Coordi- nated by Nancy Chu and Priscilla Hung. SHAPE helps students who are victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault to cope with their situation and take action. The Student Parent Project, started by two student parents in 1970 who took turns babysitting their children while they attended class, is now a thriving organi- zation that addresses the needs of student families by offering sup- port on campus, keeping student parents ' from feeling isolated, facilitating information exchange, and providing specialized work- shops and activities. Headed by Irene Nexica. LGBTSGA is a re- source for LGBT student groups, and helps them with program and fiscal planning and leadership development. Originally founded at UCLA. WISE is a nonprofit mentorship program that pairs young black teenage girls with female college students who give them guidance. At first, it began as a response to the increasing dropout and teenage pregnancy rates seen among young women of color, but now also addresses issues of self-esteem, goal-setting, and plan- ning for the future. The primary goals of WISE are to promote a 14 organizations sense of self-empowerment and self-confidence in young women of color, to provide a supportive environment where women can share their thoughts and experiences, to teach them about issues w hich affect their lives, such as sexism, racism, domestic violence. and vKonien ' s health issues, and to get them involved in changing their community tor the better. During Women ' s History Month in March, the WRC hosts many activities, such as the " Grad Women Talk. " which provides an opportunity for female undergraduates to ask questions of women who aie currently in grad school about all topics from financing education, to the differences between col- lege and grad school, to the application process. " In Our Mother ' s Kitchens We Find Wisdom " is a mix of potluck and oral history, where students share stories about a particular dish that their mom or other female relative made, and why it is important to their culiui e. " The Dating and Relationship Violence Forum " discusses the dangers women face in relationships and how to pre em them. Another coinponent is the WRC library, which is open to all students, and houses books, magazines, criticism, academic jour- nals, articles, videotapes, audiotapes, newspapers, newsletters from other woinen ' s centers, and a unique pamphlet file with over 970 entries. The library has information on every variety ol subjects concerning women. There is also information available on com- munitv resources such as internships, job listings, and medical and legal services. Many de-Cal classes and the women ' s studies de- partment keep copies of their readers in the library as well. Also linked to the WRC are de-Cal classes about issues like sexism in the media, heterosexism. homophobia, and bod image. So maybe you need help starting a new student group. Or you might be looking for an internship. Maybe you are writing a paper on women. Just go to the WRC and ask. They are happy to help. " N y dream is that the WRC be recognized and acknowledged for all the hard work that ' s been done here, and not so much just the hard work but all the good that has come out of that hard work, all the successful students, all the success stories about successful programs that we ' ve held, people that we ' ve helped, and that [the WRC] become more widely known and better appreciated on campus. . . and if we can get to that level, then that means we ' ve done everything right, that we are striving for right now, against the odds.

Advocacy and support, the second component, exists to as- sist students who have experienced sexual harassment or assault with all steps of the compliant process, such as documentation, filing a temporary restraining order, and visiting appropriate cam- pus units. The third component is the sexual harassment or assault re- source specialist. For anyone who may have experienced sexual harassment, or who may be accused of sexual harassment, the pro- fessional staff gives information and offers support throughout the entire compliant resolution process. For example, if a female stu- emails, stalking) then she can choose to either deal with the situation informally or formally, n addition to explaining what her options are, SHAPE staff members immediatel refer her to social services on campus for emotional support. She can speak to the accused hcrsell. with a friend or another mutual third part to mediate, or write a letter expressing how she feels. 11, after taking these personal in- formal actions, the accused still does not stop, the vicitm can consult with the SHAPE councilor hypothetically at first. Once agents of the institution, or employees of the university, are in- formed of a case, they have a legal responsibility to respond, so the student does not give actual names until she is sure that she wants to file an official complaint. There are also institutional informal procedures that can be taken after the university is informed of the problem — usually a letter is sent to the accused informing them that their actions are being perceived as offensive. With the help of a trained SHAPE staff or student intern, the victim documents the specific incidents.

That vision of chaos and desperation is entirely wrong but, at the same time, the concept is not all that far from the truth. The rushing process is a tradition in the Greek communit to get new members. Here at UC Berkeley, sororities have a more formalized procedure than Iraternities. so if you are interested in rushing, here is a peek at what you can expect. Every year, each sororit chaptei ' elects a rush chair, who goes to meetings to de clop rush rules, such as no alcohol or men at rush events, and to establish a rush quota to prevent chapters from getting too large or too small. Each chapter tries to maintain around 70 members, and each accepts about ten new members in the fall. Most hold rush the lirst three weeks of the semester, after which this pledges are educated about the history, rituals, and secrets of their chapter.

Linsey Pekehmu. and llelene Fisclier perform a skit for fail rusliees. 6t reeks ihc end of the week, ilicic is ;i nuiiual selection pioeess in wliieli all tiie ucii e menibeis of the chapter must agiec unanimousl to olTei ' the lushee a iiid. and she can choose hether oi- not to accept the bid.

Onl chapteis liiai do not leach their quotas can choose to leciiiit additional menibcis ihroiigh COR after olTicial rush is over. There are man reasons w h a lushee would he lelused a bid. H er thing from hei- not " show|ing| qualities that the chapter is looking for " to someone ' s " going ihiough rush foi ' the wrong rea- sons " can lead to a girl not being offered a bid. according to Newell, ' riiere ha e even been instances of girls who. accoiding to Newell, " had a complctels different notion oi what a soiorit was. They thought thc v ere going to be there just lor the fun. hut that is not the way to go about it. " Courtesy of Alpha Gamm Delta Soronty Sororities are looking for women who possess qualities such as loyalty, dedication, and openness. There is also a minimum GPA re- quirement, which aries by chapter. If a wximan lushes in the fall of her freshman scat, her high school OIW is used; if she rushes in the spring, her fii-st semester at UC Berkeley is considered. " W hat most soroiities look lor is someone who can give back. II they are going to spend the time to welcotiie this person into their chapter, they want .someone w ho is w illing to spend the time to welcome someone else. " said Summers Nevvell. vice president o[ public relations for the Col- lege Panhcllenic Association. W hen active members meet a perspec- tive pledge, thev try to see if she is down-to earth, has leadership potential, is easy to talk to. and has interest in other activities. In fall formal rush, which usuallv lasts for one week at the beginning of the semester, women w lui aic legisiered lor rush are div idci.1 into groups of about I 5 to 20 each. Hach group is assigned a rush councilor, w ho is there to give the women support through- out rush week. The 19 rush councilors are unbiased, because they disaffiliate from their chapter, live out of their chapter house, and are dedicated towaids Panhcllenic rush. Their goal is to assist each woman in finding the chapter that suil her best. In a progression o parties, each group gets to visit seven dif- ferent chapter houses. Then, each woman fills iiui a scantrt n to indicate which chapters she liked, anil likewise, each house fills out a scantron to select the girls they want back. These scantrons are led into a computer, which makes a schedule for each wxunan to revisit the chapters that she picked and that want hci- back. At What most sororities lool for is iL someone who con give bock. If they ore going to spend the time to welcome this person into their chopter, they wont someone who is willing to spend the time to welcome someone else. - Summers Newell, vice president of public relations for the College Panhellenic Association AMBER STEVENSON ( 1999 Alpha Gamma Delia Sororily prcsiclciitl.

During spring rush, women are in iicd to go to dilTerent events, and the panhellenic council distributes a list of women who arc interested in lush. Individual chapters arc then responsible lor contacting those women. " It is better to rush in the fall. " rec- ommends Summers, " becau c all the chap- ters arc rushing. It ' s a strategic, long pro- cess, while spring [rush] is more relaxed, but not all chapters arc rushing. " In many wa s. the rushing process is a bit more relaxed for fraternities. For instance, the Iratcniiiics ha e no minimum CiP. icquircmcni. men can be gi cn multiple bids from different chapters to choose from, and there are no rush quotas. L ' C Bcrkelc has 1 3 hate nities. each having 20 to 40 members. In the fall, chapters usually get about ten new mem- bers each, and in the pring, alxait li c each. During fall rush. indi idual chapters will publicize their acti iiies. which arc open to all those interested. To get a feel foi- the character of each house, men are given lours oi the facilities. If. after talking with a prospccti e pledge, the actixes in the house think he would make a gooil brother. the oiler him a bid. i the end. each rushee chooses w hich hid he will accept. Although all the chapters were founded on the same three basic principles of scholarship, friendship, and philanthrop . each individual chapter has it• ov n personalitv Andy Katz. the public relations chair for the Inicrfraternity Council explains, " it ' s much more lluid in the sense that people come and go. and the personalitic- ol the indi- vidual members of the house will realh determine what the whole chapter will be like. " In sororities as well as fraternities, initiation is the final pro- cess, and officially makes pledges acti e members of their chapter. K ery chapter has its own initiation on a different week, ei- ther at the end of the semester or at the be- ginning of the next semester. Summers ex- plains, " once you are initiated into one so- rority or fraternity, you cannot be initiated into another one. Initiation is the ultimate symbol ol dedication to an organization and its alues. " ALPHAKapixi Delta Phi Pledge Mom (in black) bonds with her pledge babies (in while).

One sunns alter- noon in . pril on Sproul Plaza members ol the Greek Community did their best to answer this question. Here ' s what they had to say: The end of Rent Control in Berkeley this past January has had a major impael on this decision in particular. .As there are in most houses many open rooms in shich members can live each semester, many people in the Creek system leel that rem prices have just gotten too high to live outside the house. .Vs freshman Leah lendelson put it, " Despite any desire I might have to live in my own place, the rental situation in Berkeley is such that I would just end up spending huge ameiunts of money to either live in some crappy little place near campus or to live far from campus. Why would I do that when I can pay a reasonable price for room and board this close to the University? " For other people in the Greek community, it all comes dov n to a question of convenience. One sophomore who wished to remain anonymous had this to say: " I can ' t cook for a damn, so it was really a pretty easy decision. 1 didn ' t want to have to worry about my own sustenance. This way there ' s always food there for me when I need it. " A recent pledge of the Kappa , lpha Iraternitv expressed similar living greel 71 SIGMA KAPPA members deft to right I Robin Champliii.

The chef is awesome. Given that, why would I even want to Uve somewhere else? " Others expressed the desire to maintain that community at- mosphere that they enjoyed during their freshman year in the doniis. According to first year student Amy Mugg. " There are always people in the house, so if you ' re ever having problems, there ' s someone there for you. Besides, you already spend so much time with the people in the house just from being involved in a sorority, so you may as well live there. " Other issues that were brought up by Greeks regard the social situation of living in-house. There is more oppor- tunity to socialize in general, but for some people in the Greek system, there lies exactly the problem. Living in-house can give them the feeling of being trapped in a small social circle. As one senior put it. " When you live there, everything ends up revolving around the house, bu do everything with those people [in the house], and you lose any individual social life. It can be depress- ing. " Others expressed discontent with the overly-tamiliar Irai part scene that makes up so much of the Greek social life, stating that the Greek communii does not offer its members enough options as for social events. The issue of personal space also came up for many when think- ing over this question. Sophomores in particular seemed to feel that after a year in the dorms they needed their own room, in their own place, something that isn ' t usually possible for people in a chapter house, in general, people that were living in-house were sharing their room with an " where from one to three other people, a prospect that isn ' t all that appealing for many students consider- ing the question of whether to live " in " , or " out " . In the end. the vast majority of the Greek members that con- tributed to this piece felt that there just isn ' t much of a debate any more, especially given that Rent Control has ended. Room and Board in a sorority or fraternity costs around $700 a month, which is also the average price quoted for rent for one bedroom apart- ments advertised at the University Housing and Dining Rental Services office. In the fall out of the end of Rent Control, most Greeks seem to feel that it ' s just not worth it to try and live on their own. -| " T ' greeks Despite any desire I might hove to live in my own place, the rental situation in Berkeley is such that I would just end up spending huge amounts of money to either live in some crappy little place near campus or to live far from campus.

With hundreds of fraternity brothers scattered across thirty-three different houses on campus, coiniiuinication and cooperation be- tween different fraternities is difficult but not impossible. Unifying the brotherhood of Greek men at Cal is a nine-member committee called the Interfraternity Council. Meeting twice a month with all the chapter presidents. IFC represents all fraternity men at Cal in promoting the shared goals of the Greek community The council consists of a president, vice president of recruit- ment, vice president of risk management, sec- retary, treasurer, programming chairman, public relations chairman, philanthropy chainiian, and scholarship chaimian. All IFC olTicers work closely with their counterpart officers on (he College Panhellenic Associa- tion. The two committees often co-sponsor community-wide events such as Scholarship Dessert. Wear ' ' our Letters Day. Greek week, and the .All Greek Forum. Every school year, the vice president of recruitment initiates a new semester with rush activities like the annual Basketball Tourney to attract new pledges. The vice president of risk manage- ment handles issues such as social chair training and part monitor- ing. When all the fraternities were placed on site probation this year, the 1999 Vice President of Risk Management.

A chiipicr president ;iikI soeiiil chair tiain- ing progiam was established, as well as the Risk Management Com- mittCL ' . The piogiaiii involved detailed tiaining on party rules and lisk preparedness. The progiamming and philanthropy chairs lead Greek eom- inunit - ide events like the Greek 01 mpics. Greek Gala. Com- munity Clean-up. llalloueeii Haunted Houses. Eggster Hunt, and hunger dri e paitici]Xition. Ouring Spring, the council worked with the College Panhcllenic Association to begin a scholarship fund in the name of two Cneek women who were killed in an automobile accident over the holiday break. The public relations chair is responsible for promoting a posi- ti e image of Greeks by communicating with the media about so- cial and philanthropy e ents. He does so by distributing a Greek FAQ ' s (Frequently Asked Questions) throughout the Uni ersity and Greek Communii and publishing the California Cireek news- letter. Contributing to this image is a strong emphasis on academic achie ement. The scholarshi|i chair runs programs like class evaluations and study groups to help keep the Fraternity GPA above the All-Men ' s Av- erage. He also coordinates a dessert event for the Qrder of Qmega society to honor up- perclassmen with GPA ' s above 5.7. With an university as large as Cal. it is quite difficult lor ililferent Greek houses to interact with one another. Fortunateh. the IFC serves as a aluable resource in facilitat- ing communiction and acti ities within the Greek communit and in improving Iraier- nit life at Cal. The lnterfraiernit Council functions as the link between the University and indi idual chaiMcrs and works to estab- lish a common bond between different fra- ternities on campus.

The implementation of these measures is neeessary to reestablish healthy relationships between the Greek eommunity and the greater community of which it is part. " Gary Kelly stated in a letter to Cal S fraternities and sororities on November 1 7, I 1998. These words rang true in the ears of = the Greek community Due to large num- s hers of complaints to the University and to o the city of Berkeley about Greek-related so- cial events, parties were banned on chapter property until February 12. 1999. In the past, the Greek community ex- ercised what is known as " self governance. " h was in charge of managing its own affairs and maintaining order among its members. Since the summer of 1998. the University has felt that the Greek community has shown " little ability to manage its own af- fairs. " as stated in the letter pla cing the sys- tem on site probation. Some of the prob- lems cited include social chairs making " in- excusable mistakes on Greek Party forms. " violating the Greek Code of Conduct, and the external affairs committee being unreli- able as a " party monitoring agency. " IComm CHI OMEGA sororily sisters ilej ' l to riglul Alyssa lleremi.

" Although declining to comment, the IFC and Panhellenic Councils ha e I ' csponded quickly and taken the ini- tiative lo meet all the requirements for lilting site piobation.

A GREAT MAIORITY OF THE rralcrnities across America had Christian or at least some form olfeiigious roots, purposes and or foundations. Even today, it is i nown that nian of the more secular fraternities and sorori- ties on campus have had such histories Irom which they have de- parted, or evolved. Alpha Gamma Omega, the only active Christ- Centered fraternit on campus, continues to hold strong to the core beliefs, morals, values and purposes upon which it was founded in 1927. The brothers of the fraternity are attracted to the chapter, not for a fancy house, flashy social events, or even temporal friend- ships while here at Cal. Rather, they are drawn towards AGO to have fellowship, accountability and encouragement from fellow believers. The purpose and focus of the fraternity is to serve God. share the gospel with the campus and community, and prepare brothers to be faithful. God-fearing, God serving men. It is for this reason that the fraternity draws men of all ethnic backgrounds. This year, active brothers hailed from such faraway places as China, Korea, Iran, Pakistan, Nigeria. Norway. France. Romania, Sweden and Mexico. There is a tremendous diversity of backgrounds, ethnicities, and denominations, but all arc brothers in Christ be- cause each trusts in Christ ' s atoning sacrifice for salvation. Thus the AGO motto " Fraternity for Eternity. " This year. Alpha Gamma Omega held a huge post-Big Game Barbecue at the house imtnediately following the unfortunate de- bacle against Stanlurd. While this would seem a relativel com- mon thing, what was uncommon was the purpose and make-up of the event.

' t ' IFC fraternities Sigma Nu Sponsors friday night by Yuwynn E. Ho and Jason Morimoto THE BROTHERS OF SIGMA NU FRATERNlTi ' CORDIALLY extended their house to over 160 high school students on Fri- day, October 2. 1998. Students representing over 40 high schools in six ditlerent counties visited the Berkeley campus under the aus- pices of Friday Night Live. Friday Night Live is a non-profit organi- zation that was founded in 1984 to encourage an alcohol and drug- free lifestyle for high school students. Currenth. the program has extended to both the middle and elementary school level. On this evening, the brothers of Sigma Nu greeted the high school students at the Berkeley BART station and then led them on a tour of the campus. They then took them on a tour of the frater- nit ' house and then on to the Kappa Alpha Thela Sorority house as well. After dinner, there was an open Ibrum discussing the multiple benefits of living in a " substance free " fraternity. They also answered any questions that the students had with regards to Cal and the college admission process. Following the discussion, the brothers, accompanied b members of Alpha Omicron Pi and Kappa Alpha Theta sororities, proceeded to the Underground, where they spent a night of playing games and socializing. The night ended around 1 1 :00 p.m. with the brothers escorting the high school students back to the BART station. This was the second time that Sigma Nu sponsored this event to give high school students from all backgrounds the opportunitv to tour the Berkeley campus and learn about the alternative " sub- stance-free " social scene in college.

PANHELLENIC By Summers Newell LIFE W ' E. THE UNDERGRADUATE MEMBERS OF WOMEN ' S fnilcniilics. stand jur guud sdiokirship. for giiunliiig of good health, for niaintcnaiice offiitc standards, and for sening. to the best of our ability, our college coinniiinity. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities. We. tlie fraternity women of .America, stand for setvice through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individnal frateritity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise hnman service through mutual re- spect and helpfulness is the tenet by which we stri] ' e to live. " Adopted by the Niiiionul Panhellenic Council in 1915, this creed is read at the beginning of each Panhellenic meeting through- out the semester to ensure a locus on the basic goals ol commit- ment and community. The College Panhellenic Association is the administrative and governing body that acts as a liason between Berkeley ' s 1 5 sorori- ties, the University, the community and other Greek Communities across the nation. Panhellenic ' s Executive Board is organized like a wheel, with the president at the center and each o the eight vice presidents acting as a spoke. The Vice Presidents of Risk Manage- ment. Prograniming, Public Relations, Membership. Finance, Ad- ministration, Philanthropy and Scholarship work both indepen- dently and as a group to develop programs to benefit the commu- nity of over a thousand women in sororities at Cal. Each lanuary, the sorority community elects the Panhellenic olTicers to serve an annual term from Spring to Fall. Two appointed offices, Greek Week Chair and Head Rush Counselor, are then chosen to work with the Vice Presidents. This school year, the women of 1998 and 1999 College Panhellenic Association Executive Boards worked to rejuvenate Greek pride and excite rush numbers. To this end. the 1999 Ex- ecutive Board have composed a mission statement during their first week as olTicers to help direct their terms of office: " We strive to become a growing, diverse Greek Community, unified in promoting a well rounded collegiate experience and rec- ognized as such. " Their efforts translated into impressive rush numbers for the Fall of 1998. To find friendship and growth, more than three hun- dred women joined sororities, the highest level in the past five years. Such huge numbers were largely due to the effort of the 1 998 Vice President of Membership. |odi Else, who spent her sum- mer working in Berkeley giving presentations and developing Rush Week. In addition, the College Panhellenic Council sp onsors many campus-wide events to promote Greek awareness throughout the year It has worked with great effort and much success to strengthen the Greek influence and contributions at Cal. Consequently, the Greek system has expanded both quantitatively and qualitatively. 18 greeks COLLEGE PANHELLENIC ASSOCIATION ' 98 LEFT to RIGHT: llene Milne iVP of Scholarship!.

Last semester, most of our events either centered around or were organized by our alum- nae. Starting with the day we moved in. our alumnae were present with their husbands to help us move in and cook us hamburgers at their barbecue on our patio. This interaction continued through reeruilment. Over twenty women returned to the Omicron chap- ter to share their stories as undergraduates in the chapter and share their experiences in the working world. After the recruitment of eight new Alpha Gam ' s, we had a barbecue dinner at our chapter advisor ' s house, followed by bowl- ing with three of our advisors. Soon after, we held our yearly Blue and Gold brunch for our alumnae before the Washington State football game with close to fifteen alumnae in attendance. One week later, our chapter alumnae president arranged and took part • " " • ' : ' ; " xV- ■,.» » ■a 3 3 o ALPHA GAMMA DELTA SORORITY members Amie Meyer (alumni). t CliaiiigLi Chilapluin. Helen Chan.

We raised over three hundred dollars for our foundation that morning. With all of the interactions with our alumnae, each semester we plan a pledge-alum dessert to introduce our new members to our dedi- cated and supportive alumnae. The event that shows the utmost support from our alumnae was when our chapter alumnae presi- dent planned and hosted the Feast of Roses, a banquet held after initiation, at her home in the Oakland Hills. Parents, family, and friends were all welcome at the celebration. Being a member of Alpha Gamma Delta means lifelong sis- terhood. All of the interaction with our dynamic group of alumnae encourages each of us to be as dedicated to our sorority as they are and cause us to look forward to our lime not only as undergradu- ate sisters, but also as alumnae counterparts.

IT WAS A COLD AND GLOOMY FALL AFTER- noon in Berkeley when we received ihe list of our new mem- bers and stood on the front lawn waiting for the girls to finally arrive and be formally welcomed to Pi Phi. The gloom didn ' t last long though, and the arrival of the pledges was marked by a frenzy of songs, laughter, and smiles as all the girls were both glad and relieved to see the week ' s festivities come to a satisfying end. The " South Seas Getaway " that our courtyard had been transformed into was quickly filled with both new pledges and active members who gathered around the tables getting to know one an- other. However, the evening was just begin- ning. Later we had a night filled with fun and crazy " girl " events. The halls were filled with ice cream sundaes, dancing girls. Eighties makeup and incessant laugh- ter into the early hours of the morning, when Bid Day at last drew to a close. The night was a definite success, characterized PLEDGES cnjuy dinner at the Pi Belli Phi Sorority house at the end of Bid Day during Fall I99S. by Pi Phi ' s spirit. The new girls were exhausted irom the excite- ment of their new home, and the older girls from their night of welcoming. In the end, despite our tired bodies, we all agreed that the night was exactly what wc needed to kick off another great semester at Pi Beta Phi with an incredible pledge class.

I isa Berquisl- cpa sororities fwp th ' f -S h- " wJI M R HES ' " M Ti FACT rom MYTH w by Terry Tray lor ' HEN ONE THINKS FRATERNITIES OR SORORITIES, and in recent ears " ethnic " , of minority based, oiganiza- lions in particular, one often conjures up visions of students dying iioni excessive hazing, drunken males engaging in lewd acts with animals as part of some pledge process or half-clothed men partici- pating in rituals from their percei ed homeland. MEMBERS ci ' Gi( )i );(; Phi Delta uitou! the Like most myths and rumors, all of the negative statements about the ethnic groups " Black Welcome Week " festivities, are rooted in some truth. For exatnple, in 199b there was an incident in St. Louis where a pledge for one of the Black Greek Letter organizations on the campus of St. Louis Univer- sit died while trying to get into the fraternity. There is also an ethnic fraternit at Cal where all of the members obtain brands after they have been initiated. But to all of these m yths and tragic events, there is a counterpoint. In the case of the pledge who died in trying to obtain membership to an ethnic fraternity, the incident was viewed negatively by both the parent fraternity and the National Pan Hellenic Council that governs the Black Greek Letter Organizations. Members who participated in the hazing were severely disciplined, and a national anti-hazing policy for all of the ethnic organiza- tions was instituted. As for the branding incidents, it is just something that is done in some organizations, and here at Cal the brothers of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity aren ' t releasing any information as to its origin or meaning. But is this all that is there to be said about the ethnic houses? Not by a long shot. These groups rarely have associated with them images of women building houses for the homeless, students organizing and preparing briefs to address local and national socio- political events, students working at local shops to raise money for need based scholar- ships, or men sponsoring an event to salute the achievements of the women in their com- munit . cl. the activities named above are exactly the types of events and programs that many ethnic fraternities and sororities spend most of their time sponsoring. So why is it that only negative images of these organizations seem to make their way to the public eye? On Cal ' s campus alone there are 18 different ethnic houses representing the .African- American. Native American, Latino Latina American, and Asian American communities. 19a greeks Comprising appioximatciv 18.9 ' ; ' o of the louil undergiaduate and iilumni GivL-k loiiered population, ihc ethnic based fraternities and sororities were originaiiv esiablishcd to address social, political, and racial issues of the time. Dating back to as early as December 190b. with the .Alp ha Phi .Alpha Iraicrnity. ethnic Greek letter or- ganizations have existed to provide their members with not only the social outlet traditionally denied to them because of pre alent racism at the time but also to pro ide a forum for discussing politi- cal action on campuses around the natitm. Toda . numbering al- most 1 .2 billion in membership, the ethnic fraternities and sorori- ties have grown to become large organizations v ith significant po- litical strength and the ability to foster change. The Cal contingent of ethnic fraternities and soioriiies are comprised of 10 Black. 4 Latino 1. atina. 2 .Asian, and I Native .American Greek Letter organizations. ' Lhese groups put on events to improNc the li es of their con-;iiiuenc and the communities that they represent. Some of these events include social pi ' o- grams such as Step shows, academic programs such as book clubs and study jams, commu- nity programs in the form of health fo- rums, and leadership conferences for con- tinuous training of budding community and campus manag- ers and leaders. So what makes ethnic organizations so different from tra- ditional Gieek letter organizations? Unlike some non-ethnic fra- ternities and sororities that originated foi ' social purposes, ethnic Greek letter organizations usually have some form of civil public service, professional, or philanthropic edict as their foundation. " People have to understand thai nsc are not just a brotherhood or some type of house, we are friends and then some. We use our fraternity as a platform to work for others. .And it doesn ' t stop after we graduate. We continue on to join graduate chapteis and then do e en more work for the frat and the communitx. " sa s Roy lackson. president of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. The triiih about ethnic organizations is deeply nested in m ths. mixed in with realities. Before judging membeis o these organiza- tions or associating them with the stereotypes thc aic tradition- ally assigned, it is wtirth taking the time to attend a Delta Sigma Thela Health Forum, or an .Alpha Phi Alpha Political .Action Fo- rum. Only after experiencing it first hand can one trul under- stand what ethnic Iraternities and sororities stand foi-. and what the mean to the communities of which ihe are an integral pari.

The forum, co-sponsored by NUPC. focuses on the " Rights and Responsibilities of Citizens. " THE OFFICIAL NATIONAL PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL (NPHC) ORGANIZATION WAS ESTABLISHED at a small conference on the campus of Howard University in May 1930. Its charter organizations were Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and Zeta Phi Beta. NPHC is the national coordinating agency for nine historically African-American fraternities and sororities. The NPHC motto is " Unanimity of Thought and Action. " Its goal is to organize the collective resources of member organizations to " enhance communities throughout the nation and the world. " The NPHC achieves this goal b planning and coordinating helpful conferences for its member organizations: leadership workshops ad- dress current events, trends, and issues of national concern, and projects such as Unity Step shows uplift the community.

The council meets bi-weekly to plan events and discuss relevant topics. One recent event sponsored by the NPIIC was an informational program entitled " Dispel the M th. " in w hich .Alrican-.American ciillege students discussed com- mon iiuths about Black Greek letter organizations. The NPHC provides a forum to discuss current events on Cal ' s campus and abroad, plans events of a social and philanthropic nature, and organizes activities to assist in the development ol stu- dent leaders. .Although the council has already tiiade a significant itiipact at Cal. Durell and Wilson have planned events to enlarge the council ' s sphere of influence on campus. Projiosed projects include an African-.American graduation formal dance and an NPHC website. The website was proposed to honor Alrican-.Ameri- can graduates, but it will also serve to improve the council ' s vis- ibility on campus. The NPHC is trying to increase its visibility on campus by implementing programs to improve the lives of African-American students. national panhellenic council Keeping xraditions by Irene Gallegos IN THE DAYS OF SCHOOL SEGREGATION. SO-CALLED minority sludcnls were forced lo conceal tiieir native culture and language. Mexican-American students at Cal were greeted with signs that read " No Spies Allowed " . They were often not even al- lowed to speak their native language in school. As a whole, it seems society would like to believe that things have evolved profoundly since then. However, much to the disgrace of this state that Califor- nians call home, little has changed. Racism still nourishes across the state, manifested in voter-accepted propositions like 187 and 209. Recent controversy surrounding ethnic-specific graduation cer- emonies, such as the Chicano Latino graduation or Black gradua- SIGMA PHI OMEGA tion. reflects this old trend of ignorance regarding culture and the specific practice of cultural traditions. Lambda Theta Nu Sorority, Inc. is a proud participant of Diade Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festivities at the UC Berkeley campus. This festive commemora- tion of the dead is celebrated during the first two days of Novem- ber. Death, often a cause of mourning and reflection, is a joyous celebration during this festival for many Latinos. Dia de Los Muertos, which honors the life of the dead and. as opposed to deploring the loss of a loved one, extols the virtues and accom- plishments of those that have passed from this world. As a frater- nal organization, it is important for Lambda Theta Nu members to praise the women that have blazed the path for Latinas in higher education.

Myriad [Adobe] SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHY: Lauren Studios- Rochester, NY PRINTER: HerfT )ones Printing. Shawnee Mission, KS EDITOR ' S NOTE This wasn ' t what 1 expected of my freshman year here at Cal: I hadn ' t planned on working on a yearbook at all, let alone editing one. But 1 suppose that ' s beside the point; whatever my intentions, I found myself in the middle of September at the helm of what eventually became the book you are reading now. I was joined by a staff comprised primarily of freshmen, most of whom 1 feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with. The job was at times exhilarating and painful at others, but despite all the ups and downs, we finished it. I would like to thank sincerely everyone that contributed to the epic task of creating this book, from the editors to my family and roommates, as well as lane Roehrig, George Stilabower, Xavier Hernandez and the rest of the Heller Lounge staff. A special thank you to those that stayed on through the summer for these last hectic months: Sarah Dolnick, |oy Liu and Diana Chai. It truly never would have gotten done without the three of you; I wish I could express how grateful 1 am. Thank you to everyone. It ' s been fun.
