Surrounded by the colors of autumn, a lone student strolls toward North Campus ' Clayton Hall. It ' s a crisp, clear October day at the University of Delaware, the vibrant shades of autumn blanketing the campus. As stu- dents travel to classes, a famil- iar tune fills the air while the bells high atop Memorial Hall sound the hour. The tree-lined mall is the center of activity, as carefree students frolic in the sunshine, tossing frisbees and playing hackeysack. Beams of sunlight shine on the ivy- covered buildings, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere. Scenes like these will always be etched in the memories of those who are part of the Uni- versity of Delaware. Although at first Delaware may have been simply a college, a closer look makes us realize that the knowledge we ' ve gained, ex- periences we ' ve had, and friends we ' ve made will al- ways be an important part of our lives. The Blue Hen 1986 A Closer Look University of Delaware Newark, Delaware 19716 Volume LXXV An Overview The 8% Exit is a familiar sight to those travelling to the University of Delaware via lnterstate-95. At first glance, Delaware ' s size may seem a bit overwhelming. Delaware ' s Newark campus co- vers 1500 acres of land and consists of over 350 facilities, including 132 major academic buildings. In addition to Ne- wark ' s campus, there is a acre marine studies complex Lewes, and a 310-acre Agricul- tural Substation in Georgetown. Consisting of 14,000 undergra- duates and 2000 graduates, Delaware ' s student body draws a majority of students from New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsyl- vania, New York, and Dela- ware. Covering 1500 acres, Delaware ' s Newark campus is located in Newark, Delaware, a suburban community of 26,000. Around Campus The Smith Overpass, commonly called " The Habitrail " by students, allows students walking to and from classes to avoid the heavy traffic on South College Avenue. In exchange for a ride to Smith Hall, Laurie Meade carries a friend ' s books so he can steer. The scenic area of central mall is the heart of Delaware ' s campus. Here, DuPont Hall is visible through the trees in late autumn. Taking a rest at Kirkbride, Greg Hughes discusses which classes to take over Winter Session with a friend. After a closer look, however, Delaware ' s large campus gives the feeling of a small, personable college. The mixture of traditional and con- temporary architecture pro- vides a beautiful setting in which students always feel at home. Though the campus is large, after a while the 15- minute walk from one end of campus to the other no longer bothers us; we ' ve already started to become part of the University of Delaware. Academic Endeavors The beautiful stained glass windows and design of Daugherty Hall make it a popular place among commuter students for studying and dining. Perhaps the most important part of lifa at Delaware is the education wd receive. The 10 colleges within the Uni-J versity offer over 130 major areas o« study. While academic achievement is a common goal of all students, the indi-j vidual aspirations and pursuits maka each student ' s education unique. Although students often intend to study outside on a spring day, they frequently abandon their studies to enjoy the warmth of the sun. Keeping Active Lending a helping hand during New- ark Community Day, Alpha Sigma Al- pha sister Jill Kanyuk explains the fundamentals of pottery to a young- ster. Practicing his serve, this student warms up for a game at the North Campus tennis facilities. Entertaining the crowd, golden girl Michele DeMatteis performs during the half time show at the Navy game. We soon learn that the University of Delaware offers a great deal more than just an education. Over 100 extracurricular organiz- ations provide a wide spectrum of activities in which to partici- pate. Whether our interests are musical, political, academic, so- cial, or recreational, there is something for everyone. Eac-. of us can pursue our individual inter- ests and express our own special talents. •torching in formation at the Home- oming game, this band member plays he Star Spangled Banner. Delaware ' s mascot, the Blue Hen, leads the football team onto the field. Athletics are also an integral part of the University of Delaware. Over 20 varsity sports attract both athletes and enthusiastic spectators. As any Delaware stu- dent knows, football Saturdays are a tradition at the U of D. Nearly every student before graduating attends at least one tailgate at the crowded stadium parking lot. In addition to varsity sports, intramurals and recreational athletics are quite popular on campus. Laying up a basket at Delaware ' s field house, Taurence Chisholm paves the ay for a victory over Lehigh. Athletic Competition Leisure Activities Displaying signs of Spring Fever, these east campus residents enjoy a sunny day on Harrington Beach. Donned in costumes and ready to go, these students wait to board the bus for Wilmington ' s Halloween Loop. Helping out a friend on a tight bud- get, this woman lends her haircutting services free of charge. Regardless of how busy we may be, we can always find time to relax and have a good time. Whether it be a romp in the snow on a wintery day, a game of football on Harrington Beach, a night of fun on the Halloween Loop, or time spent with good friends, we always find a way to enjoy our leisure time. The freshly fallen snow during Winter Session provides a playground for these north campus residents. Familiar Faces Enjoying the warm weather, this stu- dent has an outdoor lunch on the south-central mall. The true personality and spirit of the University of Delaware can be found in its students. A diverse group of people, stu- dents come from all over the country and various nations to pursue an education. By living and working together, we learn more about different lifestyles and attitudes, and gain further understanding of ourselves. Long after we grad- uate and look back upon our years at Delaware, perhaps our fondest memories will be of the friendships we ' ve made here. Off campus residents Dottie Welsko and Kevin Saum find a quick and easy way to get around campus. Stopping by Main Street between classes, lohn Jordin takes a mo- ment to write a card for a friend. ' :-nf ACADEMICS President Trabant The University of Delaware is made up of ten colleges. Within these various colleges, there are 105 undergraduate majors, 76 masters, and 41 doctoral programs. At the head of this institution is Presi- dent E.A. Trabant. Originally interested in music and philosophy, President Trabant later focused his edu- cation on his sharp mathemat- ical abilities. While in college, he noticed the positive rela- tionship between the faculty and students, and enjoyed the " mentally alive " , cultured atmosphere. These observa- tions played an important role in President Trabant ' s future. President Trabant enjoys his work and various hobbies, such as tending his vegetable garden, exercising, listening to music, and attending the theatre. He also furthers his in- tellectual growth through reading and attending lectures. President Trabant has noticed various changes within the University over the years, pri- marily that more females are enrolling in the University. This is due to increased opportuni- ties in the job market, which have made women more self- confident and career oriented. Students, Trabant says, seem to be more realistic about life. Also, they realize that a lot of work is needed to make a modest change. President Trabant believes that prospec- tive students are drawn to the University because of the in- volvement of the total com- munity with the University, the dynamic atmosphere, and the beauty of the campus. President Trabant advises students that learning is a life-long process. joining in the holiday celebration, President Trabant addresses a crowd in the Kirkbride courtyard gathered to witness the annual Christmas tree lighting. A handshake and a smile show team- work between Greg McClatchy, Presi- dent Trabant, Fern Oppenheimer and Rob Seeburger. 18 Academics Academics 19 Provost Dr. Leon Campbell Dr. Leon Campbell is responsi- ble for the allocation of Uni- versity resources and for lea- dership of academic programs. He is pleased that the Universi- ty has gained a national status and notes that programs are being updated and new pro- grams are being implemented to keep up with the competi- tion. Dr. Campbell believes that a well-rounded, liberal education is still very relevant in today ' s society because people must be able to think and express themselves clearly. Dr. Campbell was a jazz musi- cian, who never slept much but met all kinds of people. He attended the University of Texas as a pre-med major, rather than getting involved with music. This decision was influenced by his father, who was a pharmacist. While at- tending college, he had a part time job washing dishes in a microbiology lab, which finally infl uenced him to become a microbiologist. He did post- doctoral work at the Universi- ty of California, at Berkeley, where he was an assistant pro- fessor in plant science. Later, at the University of Illinois, Dr. Campbell was a professor and then became the head of the microbiology department. Dr. Campbell, eventually, became Dean of Sciences. Today he serves as the Provost at the University of Delaware. His advice is " become as edu- cated as possible while at the University of Delaware, so that when you go out into the real world, you will be prepared. " 20 Academics Vice-President of Student Affairs Stuart Sharkey Vice-President of Student Affairs, Stuart Sharkey, holds a great deal of responsibility on Delaware ' s campus. Dr. Sharkey is certainly not a stranger to the University of Delaware. He has held numer- ous positions at the University since 1963. He has worked with residence life, fraternities and student organizations, and the Honors Program, to name a few. As an undergraduate, he attended St. Lawerence College and studied pre-law through his junior year. While pursuing a graduate degree in counseling, he was Assistant Dean of Men. Dr. Sharkey has been going to University of Delaware foot- ball games for years. He has travelled a great deal, but his favorite spot is Rome. Dr. Sharkey foresees several changes at Delaware. Students will have to meet more demands in the areas of math, writing skills, and public speak- ing. He feels that working with young people is very exciting. Over the years, he has made, lasting friendships, for which he is very thankful. Coordinator Raymond Eddy Raymond Eddy has been with the University since 1969. He recently gave up his position as Dean of Students in order to work with Greek Affairs and the Parents Association. He received his undergraduate degree in business manage- ment, and after college enter- ed the airforce and worked with the Lutheran ministry. Mr. Eddy later attended Bucknell University to gain credits in the master ' s program in counseling. Eddy has seen several changes in the past decade. Students of the 70 ' s were more concerned with others and not so much with themselves. He feels that students of the 80 ' s are more materialistic and practical, and are guided by fewer rules. His advice is that we should be more concerned for others and not just ourselves. Academics 21 Administration Associate Director of Student Life Marilyn Harper Marilyn Harper, the Associate Director of Student Life, is proud of the strong academic tradition at the University of Delaware. She finds that stu- dents are taking academics more seriously nowadays. The pressure to succeed causes students to be more academi- cally committed. She also not- ed that students are more focused on choosing a career. There has also been a transition in the student body. There are now more older stu- dents at the University, which Marilyn finds a positive trend, since students are enabled to learn from friends who are not in the same age group. She hopes that this will serve to lessen the age barrier by ex- posing students to the reason- ing and convictions behind the beliefs of their elders. In addi- tion, there are also more part time students at the University of Delaware, which shows in- creased interest in the many coursed offered. In her free time, Ms. Harper enjoys traveling, and one of her favorite spots is London. She believes that everyone should enjoy some quiet moments when they can. Ms. Harper ' s advice to students is that they should try to find the positive side of every experi- ence and learn from it. 22 Academics Dean of Students Tim Brooks At the University of Delaware there are many people who give their time and talents to the students. The faculty plays one of the most important roles in our college career. Due to limited space, it is unfortunately impossible for the yearbook to include all of the faculty members in the academics section. The Blue Hen would, however, like to recognize and thank these members of the academic community for their continued dedication and achievement. As Dean of Students, Tim Brooks deals with the con- cerns of many students at the University of Delaware. Every day he works on a variety of problems, ranging from stu- dents ' problems to those of extracurricular organizations. Dean Brooks originally studied the history of art in the hopes of someday teaching art or working in a museum. Dean Brooks believes that to- day ' s students have a much clearer focus on careers and are not as preoccupied with social issues. The next decade, according to Brooks, should be a fascinating time at the University. While tuition will continue to rise, federal finan- cial aid and enrollment will continue to decline. Dr. Brooks considers himself to be on the verge of becoming a workaholic. To clear his mind and unwind, he enjoys jogging. In his free time, he also plays tennis, spends time with his sons, fishes, and works with the handicapped. Dean Brooks believes that stu- dents are under an incredible amount of pressure, both fi- nancially and academically, as well as from their parents. To avoid the stress associated with such pressures, his advice to students is to relax and en- joy life. Academics 23 The College of Agriculture The College of Agriculture is greatly expanding its horizons with its current advancements in technology. For those who think that all Ag majors will be future farmers, the college has some conflicting figures. Only a small percentage of the graduating class actually enters farming. A wide variety of ma- jors allow students to enter numerous fields. Some of these include: agricultural eco- nomics, agricultural education, agricultural engineering tech- nology, entomology-plant pa- thology, plant science, and general agriculture. Concentra- tions are also available in wildlife conservation, land- scape horticulture, and preveterinary instruction. In addition to the Newark campus, the Georgetown campus provides facilities for studying, raising broilers and swine, and growing vegetables and field crops. Outside the classroom, Alpha Zeta and the Farm House provide career related activities for Ag stu- dents. Research projects also play an important role in the students ' education. Students in advanced courses are also given the opportunity to visit nearby commercial production, processing, and marketing plants. Through the College ' s 4-H Program in New Castle Coun- ty, high school students may visit the University to learn about agricultural sciences and career opportunities. Efforts made by the University have allowed these students to visit the Newark research laborato- ries of DuPont ' s Stine-Haskell facility as well as the College ' s laboratories in Worrilow Hall. Examining a specimin, Mark Rodgers compares the bones in his diagram to the real animal. Searching for the answers to a lab assignment, Kathy Isaacs examines various rodents. 24 Academics Dean Donald Crosson Although the responsibilities of being Dean of Agricultural Sci- ences and teaching various courses leave the dean with little free time, he spends that time doing research. Though research is part of his job, it is also a source of growth and enjoyment for the dean. Dean Crosson is proud of the success of the college in pre- paring its students for their fu- ture. He believes that being a serious and conscientious worker will improve one ' s chances of success. ft Tw im an I HP ' i ■JTx . n IPS IV 0 iLii P 9ft i H Combining agriculture with high tech- nology, Mark Hardin magnifies a fly to achieve a more accurate analysis. Completing a lab requirement, Dorothy Hughs and Chris Oakes observe specimins. Academics 25 The College of Arts and Science Arts and Science is the largest college at the University of Delaware. It encompasses the talents and interests of approximately 6,500 students. The College offers education in such areas as international relations, political science, biological sciences, chemistry, computer science, and com- munications. This diverse col- lege continues to grow with the introduction of computer usage in many courses. The College of Arts and Science also offers semesters abroad, which gives students an opportunity to increase their cultural and intellectual experiences. The College has recently experienced the addi- tion of a new Linguistics de- partment for the graduate program. This department cur- rently has a national reputation for its superior research. Explaining the laws of Physics, Physics 208 instructor Toufic Hakim seems to have run out of board space. 26 Academics Dean Helen Gouldner Dean Gouldner received her PHD from UCLA and has spent much of her career working in the areas of teaching and re- search. In her free time, she enjoys watching good movies, reading, swimming, and travel- ing. Dean Gouldner believes that " Today ' s society desper- ately needs educated men and women who can write well, speak well, and analyze situations. " Her advice is to become as well educated as possible and to never stop learning. Heading for classes, students leave Kirkbride, which houses a variety of liberal arts courses. Aided by a computer, Scott Mayer analyzes caffeine c ontent. A variety of chemicals are used in chemistry students ' experiments. Academics 27 The College of Arts and Science Using a precision knife, Skip Cosneil designs a booklet for visual communi- cations. Preparing for a woodwinds class, flau- tist Brian Cox practices in the base- ment of Amy DuPont music building. Pipetting a solution, Dave Phillips pre- pares the liquid for an atomic absorbtion experiment. 28 Academics Reading from Norton ' s Anthology, Dr. Michael Rewa compares a C.S. Lewis work to Blake ' s Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Instructing students on how to over- come irrationality, Dr. Ray Sorensen teaches clear thinking. Academics 29 The College of Business and Economics The swiftly changing world has had a noticeable impact on the College of Business and E- conomics within the past few years. Growth in the popular- ity of the College has been steady as students become more economically aware of today ' s society. This year, enrollment in the College has reached 2000 students. There has been an increase in the number of women enrolled in the College as compared with previous years. Dean Brucker noted that it has been a challenge to meet the increased demand of students who compete for the limited slots in the College of Business and Economics. Curriculum has adjusted to an ever enlarging and changing market. One of the most significant changes over the past few years has been the growth in management information systems. As a result of this growth, the management in- formation system decision support systems minor has be- come very popular among business students. The growth in computer technology has also spurred the use of com- puters in business and econo- mics courses. In addition to the standardized curriculum, a wealth of other academic programs are offered by the College. The Co-op Program allows busi- ness students an opportunity to work for various corpora- tions on a fulltime basis during a semester, giving them valu- able " hands on " experience in their field. Another program offered by the College is the recently developed International Business minor. Transferring debits and credits to her ledger, Beth Woodward prepares for her accounting 207 class. Studying Consumer Economics, Cliff Battaglia crams for an exam. 30 Academics Dean Eric Brucker Originally a chemistry major, Dean Brucker never foresaw becoming a dean. When he is not busy with the College, Dean Brucker enjoys building model ships and reading non- fiction works, especially reli- gion and philosophy. Dean Brucker advises that students " get themselves together and know who they want to be. Don ' t be a slave to your parents, work, money, or peers, but to yourself first. " MMM •SB 3 ) fF ryr " ■ r gi p 1 XU m ■mfififi ' A m fl! r T f v ■ r ■■■— Having found a quiet atmosphere, Kathleen Gibbons studies cost accounting in the Pencader Commons. Sunny weather allows business stu- dents to study on the steps of Purnell. Pursuing a degree in Business and E- conomics, Julie Stellini learns about consumer behavior. Academics 31 The College of Education In the world of continuing education, a child ' s future depends on the presence of teachers. The environmental factors and individual contacts that a child makes play an im- portant role in his future de- velopment. In the College of Education, students are pre- pared to become role models who will teach social values, personal recognition, and mental growth. Preparation begins in clinical situations during the freshman year, when observation periods begin. Tutoring takes place in the sophomore year, followed by group instruction in the junior year. During the senior year, majors are re- quired to student teach for one semester. Students can also continue their learning experience outside the classroom. The Education House was estab- lished to allow education ma- jors to live together in a learn- ing environment. Students also plan community activities such as after school programs, tu- toring sessions, and supervised recreation. In 1985, two laboratories were established; the Curriculum Development Laboratory and the Educational Technology Research Laboratory. The for- mer provides a facility where teachers may bring classes for instruction in elementary science, word processing, and logo computing. The Educa- tional Technology and Re- search Laboratory gives gradu- ate students the opportunity to experiment with the mosl advanced systems in educa- tional technology. The Education Resource Center pro- vides special materials and books foi all education students. 32 Academics jff ' i Dean Frank Murray Dean Murray feels that today ' s students are more like the stu- dents of the 1950 ' s. He sees a change, in that today ' s stu- dents are more interested in teaching children, rather than teaching a subject. When he can find a little extra time, Dean Murray enjoys raquetball, carpentry, and trav- eling with his family. He advises that students achieve their wealth in the joy that comes from helping others. 5 til ■ ' « ttf M u f ■ W — o s — n WM Utilizing the Education Resource Cen- ter, Robin Fitzgerald and Aliza Rotholz prepare a lesson plan. After finding a quiet spot, this student studies for Historical Foundations of Education. Working on a unit plan, these two students prepare for student teach- ing. Academics 33 The College of Engineering The College of Engineering prepares students for profes- sions that combine mathemat- ics and science in order to provide solutions to current problems within society. In Colburn and Spencer laborato- ries and Evans Hall, students pursue majors in chemical, civ- il, electrical, mechanical, and aerospace engineering. Because of increased public awareness in areas such as pollution control and alterna- tive energy resources, the job market is steadily increasing in some disciplines. In today ' s society, engineering technology is playing an in- creasingly important role. Space programs and space ex- ploration are quickly becoming routine occurences. Bioengin- eering and material sciences have also become quite popular recently. In 1985, the University of Delaware received the honor of being selected by the Na- tional Science Foundation as the site for a National Re- search Center. After intensive screening, the University re- ceived a grant from the NSF to establish and operate the Cen- ter for Composite Manufactur- ing Science and Engineering. The center will provide re- search and training in th rapidly growing field of corr posite materials. At the Unive sity, the center will suppo the research of facult members, graduate student and staff members. Presidei Trabant, at the announcemei of the NSF grant, said, " Th designation recognizes th quality and stature of the Ur versity of Delaware. " Aided by an oscilloscope. Rich Feev and Jeff Dieffenbach analyze a wir board. Working with engineering equipmer Greg Farnum tests the strength various materials. 34 Academics Dean Byron Pipes Dean Pipes believes that to- day ' s students are much more prepared for school and for their jobs. He notes that they spend more time on studies and are preoccupied with hav- ing a role in society. Much of his time is spent conducting re- search. In the little time that Dean Pipes has left, he sup- ports the involvements of his children and enjoys traveling. His advice is that students should be open to respond to opportunities each day and to grow intellectually. In conducting accurate research, Asif Godil utilizes advanced technologies in his experiment. Academics 35 The College of Human Resources The College of Human Re- sources is a college of many dimensions, serving the needs of students interested in di- etetics, food science, nutrition- al sciences, community and family services, nursery kinder- garten education, consumer e- conomics, textiles and clothing merchandising, design, and textiles and clothing technolo- gy. Past graduates have landed positions as food technolo- gists, buyers, and purchasing agents. These opportunities are only a few of the hun- dreds which may be gained through earning a degree from the College of Human Re- sources. The College ' s population has leveled off over the past years at approximately 750 under- graduates and 60 graduate stu- dents. Some changes have tak- en place within the school. The Adult Day Care center has been moved on campus. A nutrition program has been im- plemented on campus and the preschool is now computer as- sisted. Dean Alexander Doberenz expresses concern about the lack of classroom and laboratory space within the college, a problem which he hopes to see corrected in the near future. In a seminar for junior and senior stu- dents, Peter Kohr teaches the key to interior design. In dealing with small children, stu- dents must learn patience, sincerity, and authority. 36 Academics Dean Alexander Doberenz Wisconsin. He enjoys reading, collecting stamps, fishing, and spending time on the beach. He has observed that students are much more career orient- ed, and urges that students should not end their educa- tional experience upon gradu- ation. This student in the College of Human Resources learns that a child ' s curiousity is infinite. At the request of the children, this student measures to see who is taller. Testing various textiles, these students conduct a chemistry experiment. Academics 37 The College of Nursing As rapid technological ad- vances are made in the areas of health care, disease prevention, and rehabilitative training, the College of Nursing is updating itself in order to adequately prepare students for the job market. Changes have occured in the Bachelor of Science degree, which pre- pares students for beginning professional nursing positions, and the Master of Science de- gree, which prepares students for specialization in cardiopul- monary, oncology, geriatric, and maternal child nursing. Both programs have incorpo- rated modern concepts of wellness, geriatric nursing, and community nursing into their curriculum. In addition, the graduate program has devel- oped a cancer study program as well as an increasing concern for cross-cultural nursing. Currently, there are approxi- mately 825 women and 30 men enrolled in the College. These numbers have remained constant over the years. The four year Bachelor of Science program develops the skills re- quired for a generalized prac- tice of professional nursing. During the freshman and sophomore years, nursing stu- dents fulfill various liberal arts and science requirements. During the junior and senior years, study becomes more in- tensified with participation in clinical nursing courses. Graduates of the College of Nursing find their skills in high demand and usually have little difficulty entering the job mar- ket. With the advances made every day in the field of medi- cine, graduates are faced with many new opportunities. Testing an I.V., nursing majors apply what they ' ve learned in class to a clini- cal lab experience. The difficulties of working under pressure are discussed in a lab session in McDowell Hall. 38 Academics Dean Edith Anderson Dean Anderson believes that it takes a special kind of person to be a nursing major. She has found that if students really want to enter the field of nursing, that the hard work will not be a deterrent. She stresses the importance of lik- ing other people if one wants to pursue nursing. During her free time, Dean Anderson en- joys cooking, photography, sailing, and swimming. J. - .-.:::,: After a long day of clinical experi- ence, these student nurses take a rest in a hospital room. Examining their patient, these nursing majors perform a mock operation. Academics 39 The College of Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation Recently, physical fitness and health awareness has become a national obsession. Although the College of Physical Educa- tion has one of the smaller en- rollments, hundreds of stu- dents use the facilities to stay in shape. The college offers educational activities for phys- ical education, athletic training, physical rehabilitation and parks and recreation. Students not only concentrate on their physical condition, but also on mental growth through a com- plete plan of action, diet and exercise. Some changes that have taken place within the college include a higher percentage of participation by women and the implementa- tion of computers into re- search methods and training. The Human Performance Laboratory serves as a teach- ing and research unit, which examines how the body is af- fected by both internal and external forces. The results of studies have been used by two major league baseball or- ganizations and the U.S. Olympic Committee. Playing tennis is a popular means of exercise at the University of Delaware. Reaching his weight limit, Doug O ' Brian works out in the weight room in Carpenter Sports Building 40 Academics Dean David Nelson As an undergraduate, Dean Nelson was a physical educa- tion major and enjoyed a coaching career. He later re- ceived a Masters degree in physical education. He enjoys working with his computer and doing research on the history of rules for college football. Dean Nelson believes that today ' s student places much more importance on physical fitness, which is a step in the right direction. Offering various sporting facilities, Carpenter is open to both phys ed majors and students seeking physical fitness. Breaking into a sweat, Brian Kavanagh gets a good workout on the universal gym. Academics 41 The College of Marine Studies Dean Carolyn Thoroughgood Dr. Carolyn A. Thoroughgood, who has been the acting Dean of the College of Marine studies since September 1984, was appointed Dean of the College in April of 1985. Dr. Thoroughgood, who is a very outgoing person, enjoys activ- ities which are demanding and may even be a bit stressful. The College of Marine Studies provides interdisciplinary masters and doctoral degrees. The four areas available for study include oceanography, marine biology-biochemistry, applied ocean science, and marine policy. For undergrad- uates who are interested in marine biology, degrees in physics, chemistry, mathemat- ics, biology, geology, engineer- ing, or any social science is advised. The College maintains facilities for teaching and research at both the Newark campus and the Lewes Marine Center Complex. The Marine Studies Complex is located on 387 acres of University owned land. It includes a 38,000 square foot Cannon Marine Studies Laboratory, a Marine Operations building, a 4.5 acre research vessel harbor, a laboratory for mariculture and halophyte research, and the Pollution Ecology Laboratory. The Delaware Sea Grant Program provides Delawar- eans with information and techniques which allow them to use and conserve marine and coastal resources more wisely. Performing experiments in the base- ment of Robinson Hall, these students conduct research for the College of Marine Studies. 42 Academics The College of Urban Affairs and Public Policy Dean David Ames Dean Ames spends much of his time dealing with projects on public policies, conserva- tion of historical sites, and community planning. Most of his duties during the workday turn into hobbies in his free time. One such activity is pho- tography. His other hobbies are cooking and exercising. The College of Urban Affairs and Public Policy is a graduate college offering masters degrees in urban affairs and public administration. The Col- lege encompasses urban affairs, public administration, and philosophy, and works jointly with various agencies. Some of the many organiza- tions assisted by the College in 1985 were the Department of Natural Resources, the Christiana School District, the Delaware Lung Association, the National Park Service, the Division of Historical and Cul- Hard at work, Russ Dynes investigates various restoration projects. tural Affairs, and Delaware ' s Emergency Planning Office. The Center for Historic Archi- tecture and Engineering devel- oped an adaptive re-use plan for the lower Market Street historic district in Wilmington. This project involved the renovation of historically sig- nificant buildings for economi- cally beneficial new uses. Nationally, the Center, in con- junction with the Historic American Building Survey and the faculty of other universi- ties, began a study of the effects of acid rain on outdoor sculpture.

During any season, the beach is always full of activity. Students, especially freshmen and sophomores, are attracted to this part of campus because of the modern design of the buildings, the option of coed or single accommodations, and its convenient location. East campus residents also have the advantage of being close to Harrington and Russell din- ing halls, as well as the Student Center.

On the North Mall, music can often be heard blaring from one or more of the four dorms. Whether students are playing hackeysack, juggling, performing radical skateboard moves, throwing a frisbee, or playing lacrosse, there is al- ways some type of activity oc- curring on the Mall. Although these residents do not have their own dining hall nearby, they have the advan- tage of being close to classes, Main Street, and Carpenter Sports Building. BROWN SYPHERD Housing 51 SOUTH CENTRAL CAMPUS Smyth, Cannon, New Castle, Kent, Sussex, Squire, and Warner halls make up the South Central portion of campus. With the exception of coed Cannon Hall, all the tradi- tional style South Central dorms are reserved for wom- en. This particular part of campus offers a quiet, studi- ous atmosphere and excep- tional beauty during any sea- son to its residents. Warm spring days attract sun bathers to the Mall and tennis players to the courts located behind Cannon Hall. The stu- dents on South Central are ideally situated near Kent din- ing hall, Morris Library, and the Student Center.

Drinking games are popular at parties, and these Pencader A residents get in practice with a few friends. Not having enough space is a problem for any resident, but Sally Diederichsen seems to have found just enough room to exercise. North Campus, which is inhab- ited mainly by upperclassmen, is composed of the modern Pencader complexes and Christiana Towers skyscrapers. Each Pencader building is divided into quads, housing women on one side and men on the other. The 17 floor East Tower and 16 floor West Tower offer a spectacular view for those students living on the upper floors. In addi- tion, the Towers offer apart- ment style living, which in- cludes individual living rooms, kitchenettes, and bathrooms. Although North Campus seems separated from the rest of the campus, most students do not mind the short walk or bus ride to classes. Housing 57 SPECIAL INTEREST HOUSING Special Interest Housing gives students a unique residence option. While many houses such as the French, German, International, and Spanish House offer a cultural experi- ence, others like the Belmont, Education, Music, Martin Lu- ther King, and Farm House attract students who have common backgrounds or in- terests. Each house sponsors related activities throughout the year, such as picnics, trips, and festivals, and the various houses often get together to coordinate events. Many stu- dents also enjoy the residential atmosphere and the close friendships that develop. FARM HOUSE FRENCH HOUSE 58 Housing GERMAN HOUSE Housing 59 LIVING OFF CAMPUS After living in dorms for one or two years, many students choose to move off campus and into a nearby apartment, townhouse, or house. Off campus living offers a variety of advantages to upperclass- men. Many students prefer the extra space and freedom pro- vided by off campus housing. Since most off campus housing is not associated with the Uni- versity, students are not re- quired to purchase a meal plan and many enjoy their own home cooking. In addition, the off campus option is often less expensive than living in the dorms. Some popular off campus locations include Pa- per Mill, Foxcroft, Towne Court, Park Place, and Victoria Mews Apartments. Paper Mill residents Dawn Weber, Chris Waltsak, and Eileen Mikula are always ready for a party.

Running backs Tony Tolbert, Bob Norris and Fred Singleton played well, combining for 297 yards rushing. The defensive secondary of Phil Atwell, Ty- rone Jones, and Jim Turner also made an excellent debut, collecting five interceptions. Delaware ' s good fortunes continued the next weekend as the Blue Hens upset heavily favored Division IA Navy 16- 13 before a sellout crowd of 23,115, the second largest Delaware Stadium crowd in history. Linebacker Darrell Booker (see inset) had a star performance, in large part containing the potent running of Navy ' s Napoleon McCallum.

Unfortunately, the season end- ed on a disappointing note as Maine upset Delaware 10-7 in the final minute of play to shatter the Hens ' playoff hopes. Nonetheless, the 7-4 record was a noteworthy ac- complishment against a sched- ule of such formidable oppo- nents. Several individuals had star performances, including Rich Gannon, who after two seasons as quarterback has ac- cumulated 4,103 yards total offense, 4th on the all-time chart; Darrell Booker, who topped the Blue Hen tackle charts for the second straight season and made 101 solo takedowns; senior safety Ty- rone Jones, who policed the secondary with six interceptions; and halfback Bob Norris, who once again led the Blue Hens in all- purpose yardage, averaging 119.9 yards per game.

Soccer 83 FIELD HOCKEY Quite simply, the Blue Hens wanted to forget last season. After suffering through a 9-10- 1 season, the first losing mark in Delaware field hockey history, the Blue Hen returnees were eager to attack a de- manding schedule featuring perennial Top Twenty contenders. As head coach Mary Ann Hitchens remarked at the onset of her 13th sea- son at Delaware, " Last year was a disappointment, but it ' s behind us. We can ' t do any- thing about the past, but we can do something about our future.

Confrontations with Top Twenty opponents followed. Eleventh-ranked Penn State felled Delaware in an intensely fought overtime match, but the Hens rebounded to defeat 14th-ranked West Chester. They then weathered a loss to 17th-ranked Maryland, but overcame a long road trip to upset 9th-ranked Virginia 2-1. The momentum continued in a win over 15th-ranked Rutgers and a 4-0 shutout of ECC rival Towson State. Despite a fierce battle, the Blue Hens came up short in a 1-0 loss to the 11th-ranked Temple Owls. The defeat proved to be the season ' s last, however, for the Hens over- whelmed their next five oppo- nents, shutting out ECC foes Lafayette, Lehigh, Drexel, Rid- er, and Bucknell in succession to top the East Coast Confer- ence with a perfect 7-0 mark. The outstanding season reached a high point when Delaware defeated Lehigh in the ECC semifinal and went on to beat Lafayette 2-1 to capture the conference title, their first championship since 1982. The Blue Hens ended the season ranked 13th in the nation and just missed qualifying for the 12-team NCAA Division I playoffs. Nonetheless, the 15-4 record and ECC championship vindicated the talent of the team and swept away the dis- appointment of the previous season. Said Hitchens, the ECC Coach of the Year, " We came through when the chips were down and did what we had to do. By all means it was an earned effort. " Several members of the Dela- ware team earned special re- cognition for outstanding play Senior Ann Wilkinson (se inset) was named ECC Playe of the Year.

All five season-end- ing starters were back, includ- ing forward Oscar )ones, the second leading scorer in the East Coast conference in 1984- 85, and guard Taurence Chis- holm, and AII-ECC rookie whose 8.0 assists per game ranked him the third leading Division I playmaker. Other re- turning starters included center John Weber, guard Brad Heckert, and forward Barry Berger. Jones and Weber were selected co-captions of the promising 1985-86 team. Steinwedel ' s inaugural season at Delaware got off to a gold- en start as the Hens ran off a 7-2 mark prior to Christmas break. Follo wing an 87-84 exhibition win over the AAU Marathon Oilers, Delaware defeated Glassboro State 91- 68 in the home opener. The Hens then participated in the Michigan State Cutlass Classic, splitting against Central Michi- gan and Western Michigan and Western Michigan.

Clearly the injuries to key players led to a downturn of the team ' s fortunes, for the Hens lost the first four games of January by a heartbreaking total of eleven points. A 101- 77 loss to Lafayette and a 108- 63 rout inflicted by Na vy be- fore a sellout Delaware Field House crowd of 2500-plus sank Delaware into a losing record, from which it would not emerge for the rest of the season. Although the six-game losing streak was snapped with a 71-70 edging of Lehigh, the Hens were not the team of earlier in the season, struggling throughout the ECC schedule and finishing 11-16 overall and 4-10 in the ECC. Coach Steinwedel, though befallen upon difficult circumstances, was pleased with his players ' attitudes: " The loss of several key players with nagging injuries hasn ' t helped. I think the team ' s attitude has been out- standing though they are ex- tremely disappointed we haven ' t done better in the win-loss column.

" In the past we have had a problem with inexperience on our team, " commented Perry. " But this year I can honestly say that we have a large num- ber of returnees that know our style of play. " Certainly the Hens possessed a strength in their forwards, with the combinations of senior Sarah Gause, 1984-85 ECC Player of the Year, on one side and senior co-captain Meg McDowell, a 1984-85 AII-ECC selection, on the other. Gause topped the ECC in field goal percentage (.500) last season and shot 81% at the free throw line, while McDowell led the Blue Hens in both scoring and rebounding a year ago, with 13.1 points and 7.9 rebounds per game.

Better to say that DeWalt ' s ac- complishments have complete- ly rewritten Delaware ' s athletic history-completely. Forget for the moment his record-breaking marks for ca- reer wins (101), season wins (28), consecutive dual meet wins (41), career pins (31), ca- reer team points (310), and fastest pin (12 seconds). Never mind his three East Coast Con- ference titles in 1984, 1985, and 1986. Overlook the three consecutive Salisbury, Lafayet- te, and Delaware Invitational Tournament championships he has garnered. For Dave DeWalt accomplished in March of his senior Year what no Delaware ahtlete has ever done before — he was cited as the first individual event Divi- sion I NCAA All-American in UD history. Little wonder that for his seventh-place NCAA Wrestling Tournament finish DeWalt was honored as the Outstanding Senior Male Athlete at Dela- ware. DeWalt ' s dual meet sea- son record of 17-0 in 1985-86 contributed heavily to the team ' s 10-5-2 season mark. Head coach Paul Billy, now in his 21st season at the helm of Delaware wrestling, observed that his team was " a splatter- ing of experience mixed with inexperience, " with a roster of only two seniors and three juniors complementing a doz- en freshmen. Certainly the ex- perience proved an asset: in addition to DeWalt ' s 190- pound accomplishments, ju- nior Paul Bastianelli had a stellar performance at 142, go- ing 16-1-1 on the year with a run of twenty undefeated duals. Imposing sophomore 150-pounder Dan Neff grap- pled to a 7-0 mark early in the season. But the youth on the team matured quickly into via- ble competition as well: freshman John Curran went 10-4 at 126 while freshman 158-pounder Steve Shank finished 11-2. The Hens began the season by running off eight con- secutive victories, their best start since the 1969-70 sea- son. The latter portion of their schedule proved diffi- cult, as the Hens suffered lossed to ECC powers Rid- er, Drexel, and Bucknell and ended with a 1-4 ECC record and a sixth place conference finish. Nonethe- less, the Hen matmen im- proved upon their previous season record of 7-9. Al- though the graduation of four-year starter DeWalt will leave a large void to fill, nearly all of this year ' s start- ing squad will be returning, including standout Paul Bastianelli, and the Hens can expect to make a bid for the ECC title. 98 Wrestling JU-ok. oct ■ ■ DAVE DE WALT Dave, a four-time letter winner and captain of the wrestling team of two years, won an NCAA All-American citation after finishing seventh at the national tournament.

With the newly revitalized men ' s and women ' s squads, the Blue Hens went on to fin- ish 6-5 and 7-5 respectively in men ' s and women ' s competi- tion. Several men swimmers had outstanding performances during the season. Freshman Rich McCormick set a new Delaware Carpenter Pool record in his first collegiate meet against Temple with a time of 2:00.06 in the 200-me- ter butterfly, edging )im Mullin ' s previous mark of 200:42. However, Mullin reestablished himself with a time of 1:59.37 in the same event against Drexel later in the season. Brooks Clark set a new UD mark in the 1000- yard freestyle against Ameri- can with a time of 9:59.63, breaking the former record of 10:01.99 held by Chuck Ganci. Freshman Scott Edmonds won consistently in his specialty, the 50 and 100 freestyle. Another standout, freshman Lee Martin, posted the top time in the 200 breaststroke (2:13.50) in the ECC rankings and thereby qualified for the Eastern Seaboard Championships. Martin ' s superb efforts at the ECC championships (see inset) helped the men ' s team improve to a 4th place ECC finish.

Senior triple letterwinner Beth Whitfield broke a UD record in the three-meter dive against George Washington with her score a 237.55, while another senior three-time letterwinner, co-captain Tammy Chap- man, established a new Delaware record and quali- fied for the NCAA meet with a score of 273.22 in three-meter diving over Towson. Junior Janice Behler, recipient of the Most Valuable Women ' s Swimming Award, was in- strumental in the team ' s third place ECC finish as she won the ECC 200 yard but- terfly and placed second in the 200 Individual Medley. 102 Swimming Tsl 4Uk 1 11 111 % » 42 4m itim Hi ; u UiJMJ ..... ... .MtoA JU-tk. oJb . - . u LEE MARTIN Lee has the distinction of being the first freshman in ECC championship swimming competition to win two individ ual titles.

Swimming 103 BASEBALL Inexperience on the mound was a crucial element the Blue Hens needed to address as they entered the 1986 season. Only two pitchers returned from last season ' s roster of seven, prompting head coach Bob Hannah to remark, " With no real stopper on the mound it could be a struggle at times against our ambitious 48-game schedule. We ' ll need help from our newcomers to make it as successful as in past seasons. " A powerful return- ing offensive lineup fortified Delaware ' s preseason pros- pects, however, as only one starting fielder was lost to graduation and all the return- ing starters had career batting averages over .300.

The Hens opened to an early 13-3-1 overall record, their best start since a 12-1 debut in 1977. Third baseman Paul Murphy embellished the offen- sive surge, batting .456 at midseason with a team-high nine home runs and 37 runs batted in.

As a team the Hens averaged .361 at the plate. Equally impressive on the mound were rapidly maturing pitchers Randy Simmins, a freshman standout who started his first season with three wins and two saves, and sophomore Bill Gibbons, the team ' s ERA lead- er with a 3.23 mark and a 5-0 record in pitching decisions. Continuing to supplement their batting dynamo with a steadily improving pitching staff, the Hens rolled to a 28-12-1 overall record, including a 10-4 ECC mark and a second place conference finish. At the ECC championships hosted at Rid- er, Delaware suffered a 6-0 opening round loss to Lafayette, but rebounded to a 9-0 pummeling of Towson State. The Hens then edged Lafayette in a 3-2 win to advance to the championship against Rider. Needing to win two straight, Delaware assault- ed Rider ' s excellent pitching staff for a 15-2 first-game win. Rider, however, rallied behind the arm of pitching ace Mike Duetsch, the tournament ' s Most Valuable Pitcher, to de- feat Delaware 4-3 and capture their third consecutive ECC ti- tle. Subsequently, Delaware third baseman Paul Murphy and outfielder Mark Rubini were named to the ECC All- Conference team with Mur- phy also receiving Player of the Year honors in recognition of his offensive fireworks throughout the season.

Carlyle ' s coaching tal- ent is evident in the Hens ' string of fifteen consecutive seasons in which the team batting average has exceeded .300. Baseball 105 SOFTBALL Despite the loss of two top batters and a record setting pitcher to graduation, the 1986 Hens Softball team battled to a winning 17-12-1 record behind superior pitch- ing and a superb batting per- formance from AII-ECC selec- tion Lori Horton. Four-year shortstop Betsy Helm and 1985 AII-ECC catcher Lisa Bartoli departed, as did pitcher Patty Freeman, a 1985 ECC pick and Delaware career record-holder in wins, strikeouts, shutouts, no-hitters and earned run average. Nonetheless, the rejuvenated Hens, under head coach B.J. Ferguson, rebounded from their disappointing 14-18 mark of last spring to put together their fifth winning season of the last six years.

Horton, who last year was fifth in the ECC in batting average (.320), fourth in runs batted in (14), and second in doubles (5) and triples (6), repeated with another outstanding perfor- mance, batting a sharp .343 at midseason and connecting with a team-high three doubles and two triples. The relatively inexperienced pitch- ing duo of Jill Rosen and Darla Shearer assumed the mound duties with fine play, combin- ing for seven shutouts and giv- ing up an average of just 2.4 runs per game. Jill Rosen, a ju- nior, threw for a 1.48 ERA and a 7-5 record, including eleven complete games and three shutouts. Sophomore Darla Shearer, who filled in for the injured Vicky Stewart and doubled as shortstop, pitched to a 1.71 ERA and 10-7 record, with fourteen complete games, four shutouts and 84 strikeouts. Rounding out the Hens ' start- ing squad were catcher Jenny Thir, first baseman Wendy Lockhart, second baseman Michele Norris, and outfielders Tiffany Bashore, Barb Lewis, and Lynne Bartlett. Backup infielders Tracey Archbold, Kim Arehart, and Andrea DiCandido provided capable support, as did pinch hitter Missy Hukill and outfielder Ronnie Urbine. With only sen- ior Michele Norris graduating and pitcher Vicky Stewart re- turning from a knee injury, the Blue Hens appear a virtual lock to improve upon their record next spring and contend for the ECC crown. gffiM .£ r ' ' k. jfl %2 K " B nv 9K ■rk M 1 106 Softball JU-tk. out . .

Softball 107 MEN ' S LACROSSE With seven starters returning from the 14th nationally ranked Delaware team of a year ago, head coach Bob Shillinglaw and the Blue Hens sought a berth in the season- ending NCAA Tournament that the team last entered in 1984. Tempering their optimism was a grueling 16-game Division I slate, including eight of the top fifteen teams in the nation. Said coach Shillinglaw of his team ' s prospects, " It should be an exciting season. I believe all the top teams have an equal chance of reaching the final four.

The recurring problem of the Hens was a weakness in defense in the wake of goalie Jim Rourke ' s graduation. The situation was resolved with the emergence of Gerard deLyra from a three-way battle as the team ' s starting goalkeeper. In the nets deLyra recorded a save percentage of 58.8%, averag- ing ten saves per game. Ac- companying the strengthened defense came an upturn of the Hens ' fortunes, as they posted five straight wins. Fore- most among the victories were a 7-6 upset of 8th ranked Maryland-Baltimore County, Delaware ' s first win ever at UMBC, and a 12-3 de- cision over 9th ranked Duke. The Blue Hens also won easily over ECC opponents Hofstra, Lehigh, and Lafayette, by margins of 15-6, 16-6, and 18- 3 respectively. Anchoring the charged offense was Team USA member and All-Ameri- can attackman Randy Powers, who led the team in scoring throughout the season in both goals and assists (including 22 points in the first seven games). Co-captain Steve Shaw, the team ' s fourth- leading scorer, impressively dominated the face-off circle, winning better than 74 percent of all draws.

Overall the Hens finished 10-6, and ended the season ranked 12th in the USILA poll. Randy Powers was honored as a sec- ond team All-American, while Steve Shaw received honor- able mention All-American. In his eight years at Delaware, nationally respected coach Bob Shillinglaw has compiled a 74-53 record. With the victory over Lafayette, Shillinglaw be- came the winningest coach in Delaware history, surpassing Mickey Henderson ' s previous mark of 68 wins.

For the eighth straight year, Coach Roy Rylander guided the team to a winning season, posting a 6-5 record. This year ' s team was characterized by a seemingly unlimited potential that was never quite realized. A few unfortunate circum- stances stacked the deck against Delaware, preventing the Hens from attaining a truly outstanding season. Foremost was the loss of David Gonzalez, returning ECC 5 Singles Cham- pion, to an illness in midseason.

With Gonzalez out, the next three players on the ladder were forced to play one position higher, and tougher, than before. After a heartbreaking 5-4 loss to Towson, the team headed south for its annual Florida trip. In their first day in the sun, Delaware swept all six singles matches to defeat Webber College. After falling to St. Leo, the Hens rebounded strongly by upsetting a highly touted Florida Institute of Technology team in an exciting 5-4 finish. Gonzalez, Dave Baldwin, Jim Korman, and Jeff Alecci provided key wins. The victory over FIT spurred Dela- ware on to a devastating five- game winning streak that in- cluded 9-0 shutouts of St. Josephs and Bethune- Cookman, and 8-1 victories over American and Rider. With a 6-2 record, the Hens ' prospects looked bright as they headed toward the ECC Championships. But then misfortune struck as foul weather cancelled four matches and illness forced Gonzalez out of the lineup. Losses to West Chester, Bucknell and Lafayette closed out the Hens ' season at 6-5, with a 5th place ECC finish. Delaware returned six lettermen, led by captain and 1985 ECC 3 singles champion Jaime Ferriero. Jim Kegelman stepped into the 1 slot as a sophomore and consistently turned in outstanding perfor- mances. Kegelman finished with a 7-4 record and will be an imposing force atop Dela- ware ' s lineup for the next two years. Dave Baldwin and Jim Korman also turned in 7-4 singles records and paired to- gether to post a 6-3 doubles mark. The surprise of the year was sophomore Steve Dunton, who pulled off a stunning first- round upset of the top seed in the ECC tournament. Previously, Dunton was 0-2 in singles, having specialized in doubles for most of the year. His runner-up finish in the 6 singles flight is a promising sign for Delaware ' s future. With only Ferriero graduating the Hens will be loadei with talent and experienc next season. If they ca consistently play near 70 ( 80% of their potential, th upcoming season will be smashing success. -Jaime Ferrier 112 Men ' s Tennis Clockwise from below: Fifth singles Jim Korman posted a 7-4 dual meet record this season, raising his career performance to 18-10; senior captain Jaime Ferriero, the team ' s Most Valu- able Player selection, extends to return a serve; Dave Baldwin notched a 7-4 fourth singles dual meet slate and combined with )im Korman for a 6-3 doubles record; top singles )im Kegelman filled in admirably for the injured David Gonzalez, compiling a 7- 4 mark; a seasoned veteran, Coach Roy Rylander guided the Hens to their eighth consecutive winning season.

With a contingent of eight letterwinners return- ing, including four of last season ' s top five players, coach Scotty Duncan was more than justified in expect- ing title contention from his squad.

A talented corps of golfers contributed to the Hens ' successful campaign. Leading the team were junior Kevin Gallagher, the team captain, and senior Bob Mattone, who placed third and fourth re- spectively at last year ' s ECC tournament. Gallagher spurred the Hens on to a 9-1 start by shooting a career-low 72 at West Chester and a crisp 76 at the Lafayette Drexel tri-meet. Mattone, a triple letter winner, contributed a season-low 76 at West Chester. Rounding out the team ' s top five were sen- iors Michael Davis and Brad Hublein and sophomore John McNair. Davis was a sensation in tournament play, shooting team lows of 150 at the Penn State tournament and 154 at the ECC tournament. He also shot a medalist 74 against Swarthmore. Triple letter win- ner Hublein performed consis- tently well throughout the sea- son, notching a team-leading 78 at the Navy Gannon tri- meet and a 76 against Villanova and Widener. McNair, too, bolstered the squad with two medalist per- formances, shooting a 75 at Georgetown and a 79 at Glassboro. Other key contributors to the winning season included junior Scott Kelley, who shot a med- alist 80 against Lehigh and Towson, and sophomore John Quirk, who turned in a team- low 80 in the win over Johns Hopkins. Reed Kleintop, Paul Ritter, Kevin Smith, Jim Riley, and Larry Schroek also saw playing time during the year. After clinching their second straight ECC title, the Hen golfers accepted an invitation to the Eastern In- tercollegiate Golf Associa- tion championship tourna- ment. The team finished sixth in the rankings, Dela- ware ' s fifth consecutive top-ten appearance in the EIGA rankings. The out- standing 16-2 season mark upped the Hens ' streak of winning seasons to twenty- three.

Despite the loss of four East Coast Conference champions p graduation — hurdler Anthony Johnson, high jumper ieff Simpson, pole vaulter Jess Dodd, and thrower Dan Mill- er -the Hen ' s indoor track quad enjoyed its best season ever, attaining a 7-1 overall •ecord, including a 2-1 ECC standing and third place ECC inish. Likewise the outdoor earn performed well, posting ,i 3- 1 season mark and taking hird at the ECC rhampionships. jrhe key to the team ' s success, »s Fischer observed, was quality output from individual jithletes. The Hens opened jheir indoor season in January Uth a quadrangular meet at the Delaware Field House, dropping their lone loss to Penn while outscoring Towson and Textile. Several Hen dis- tance runners broke school records in the opening meet: freshman James Benson in the 500 meters (1:08.9); senior Rob Rainey in the 800 meters (1:57); and freshman Tom Rog- ers in the 1000 meters (2:30.4). Delaware continued with triangular meet victories over Drexel and LaSalle followed by a quad-meet sweep of Mt. St. Mary ' s, West Chester, and Catholic. Senior thrower Steve Hansen set a new Delaware record in the shot put (55 ' 6V2 " ), while freshman distance runner Bill McQuillan estab- lished a new Delaware stan- dard in the 500 meter run (1:07.9). These fresh records would stand all of two weeks, however, for at the 20th an- nual Delaware Open on Feb- ruary 9, Hansen broke his own shot put mark with a superla- tive throw of 56 ' 2 " (also an ECC record), and McQuillan similarly improved upon his previous record-setting perfor- mance with a time of 1:06.43 in the 500 meters. In outdoor track and field, Hansen again heaved to victory, capturing the shotput title at the Brooks Invitational Meet hosted by George Mason University with a throw of 50 ' 6 1 2 " , in addi- tion to placing second in the hammer throw and third in the discus. At the Brooks Invitational junior sprinter James White displayed his con- siderable speed by clocking at 15.1 seconds in the 110 meter high hurdles. The outdoor track team subsequently com- peted in decathlons at Kutxtown and Penn State, re- lays at Rutgers and Penn, the Temple Open, and the Mt. St. Mary ' s Open. They also earned a 3-1 decision in a five- way meet against Columbia, Textile, and ECC opponents Rider and Drexel. Even with star thrower Steve Hansen and other valuable seniors graduating, plenty of talent will be returning to the 1987 indoor and outdoor teams. The Hens will be pre- pared to contend with 1986 co-champions Rider and Bucknell for supremacy in the East Coast Conference. JU-Qk.

The University of Delaware ' s radio station, WXDR, provides non- commercial alternative radio programming to the University community, as well as to the residents of a twenty-five mile radius from Newark, including parts of Delaware, Pennsylva- nia, Maryland, and New Jer- sey. This year marked the first time WXDR was broadcast twenty- four hours a day. Programs include music, news, entertain- ment, and public affairs, such as the Blue Hen Sports Cage, Facts for Action, Delaware News Magazine, and Zoom In. The station is managed, programmed, and operated by students interested in broad- casting, journalism, and pro- ducing. Students interested in public relations, business and management are also in- volved. Radiothon ' 86, WXDR ' s annual fund raiser, was successful once again. The event, held during April 18-27, featured special programming, guest disc jockeys, and contests. At Student Center Night, WXDR presented five live bands. The Amateur Radio Associa- tion is made up of students, faculty, and staff who want to learn more about amateur ra- dio. The association promotes and supports amateur radio communications and public service communications at and near the University. The association has expanded to two full stations this year. Its members are non-commercial hobbyists who explain, " We ' re not WXDR! " It is a public service organization, created so its members can get involved with a technical hobby without being " aca- demic " about it. Opposite Page: Top: The Amateur Ra- dio Association.

Organizations 133 College Councils Unite Students, Faculty Each of the University ' s col- leges has councils to help stu- dents get involved in their aca- demic area. For example, the Agriculture College Council encourages, initiates and conducts services which are essential to the stu- dents of the college of Agricul- tural Sciences. It promotes uni- ty among the students of agriculture at the University, and broadens the students ' outlook in the field of agricul- ture. Also, it promotes cooper- ation among faculty and stu- dents to better suit students ' needs in agriculture. This year, the council offered greater re- presentation to all classes. Enthusiasm of group members allowed for more programs, including participation in com- munity activities. The Business and Economics College Council acts as a liason between the students and faculty of the Business College. Members are given the opportunity to run and or- ganize programs for their fel- low students, meet the faculty on both an informal and for- mal basis, and have a say about what goes on in their college. The council sponsored a trip to New York City to see the New York Stock Exchange, and a presentation entitled " How to Find a Summer Job. " The Human Resources Col- lege Council serves as the stu- dent government within the college. The council handles concerns such as academic policies, convocations, student- faculty concerns to both the Dean and DUSC. Students in the college of Human Re- sources that are on the council are on sub-committees within the college, and are given the opportunity to develop leader- ship skills and intermingle with fellow students, faculty, and the administration. This year, the council ran the Freshman Wel- come which introduced fresh- men to the college and the var- ious organizations within the college. It also published a handbook of college clubs and organizations. The Arts and Science College Council acts as a liason between the students of the Arts and Science College and the faculty and administration. Members gain experience through coordinating pro- grams that affect a large part of the University population. They also have the opportuni- ty to work with faculty and administrators.

The group consists of interested students, as well as the presidents of all the engineering societies. They help plan and coordinate activ- ities for the college as a whole, and thus gives the students the chance to learn organizational and leadership skills. The council sponsored an Engineer- ing Week which included an Alumni Career Night, a Re- search Opportunities Night, an Open House, and a Career Fair. The Physical Education, Ath- letics and Recreation College Council provides various activit- ies and projects which act as an extension to the student ' s for- mal education. Physical educa- tion and recreation majors join the council to become more aware and involved in profes- sional organizations, to broaden their knowledge of physical education and recreation, and to broaded their awareness of career opportunities. The coun- cil is made up of men and women who have a genuine in- terest in developing the inter- ests and ideals of others through physical activity and sport. The council sponsored Physical Education Olympic Games and Fitness Awareness this year. The Nursing College Council deals with academic issues where students of the council serve on various committees in the Nursing College adminis- tration. The council is made up of nursing majors who are in- terested in more than the aca- demic aspect of the college and who are a vital key in the fundraisers, annual events and tours of McDowell Hall. The council sponsored LifeFest ' 86, a health fair for the University community in the Spring. The Education College Council provides education majors with opportunities to learn about and get involved with events that will help them in their future careers as teach- ers. This year, the council has do- nated all profits from their an- nual sweats sale to the Very Special Arts Foundation. The council took trips to schools with special education chil- dren, at which the members volunteered their time, and gave them parties. z O N Organizations 137 o o z N o z Above: The 1985-86 Delaware Undergraduate Student Congress.

It assumes the responsibility of self government delegated to it by the faculty and adminis- tration, and interprets universi- ty policies for the students. DUSC is the umbrella organi- zation over the University ' s approximately 150 clubs and organizations, and allocates money to them through the DUSC Budget Board. In the last few years DUSC has grown in all areas of student life. This year has been no ex- ception. In the Fall semester, DUSC provided a new student record for incoming freshmen and transfer students. This book proved to be a successful orientation tool, with maps, campus informa- tion, and pictures of the new students. Also, the Third Annu- al Free Tuition Raffle provided students the chance to win a free Winter Session tuition. This year, two students were selected, one in-state, as well as one out-of-state. All addi- tional money was sent to the Financial Aid Office for distri- bution to needy students. This year, one of the main goals of DUSC was to obtain a variety of student input, as well as inform the University population of activities. This was done through a program called, " Talk Back To DUSC. " With DUSC Executive Board lunches, and a radio show on .WXDR called, " The Grape- vine, " DUSC feels this goal was met. DUSC tackled many important issues facing students this year. The annual Spring Symposium looked into commuter stu- dents at the university; what their role is, and how they can become a more intricate part of the campus. Through the Office of Winter Session, DUSC sponsored a conference on Community Service and the University Stu- dent. This conference spawned a continued aware- ness in DUSC so that students can play an important part in bettering the community. With a continued rise in tuition, and cutbacks in Federal Aide, DUSC held a Financial Aid Awareness Week. Also, DUSC President Bob Teeven spoke in front of the State of Delaware Legislature )oint Finance Committee about the need for additional funding. The highlight of this year was the planning and implemation of the Second Annual Spring Fling. With bands, games, re- freshments, and various activit- ies, it was a festive afternoon for the entire University. This year, DUSC was proud to be a part of the selection of Alex Haley as the 1986 Com- mencement speaker. Addition- ally, through the DUSC Com- mencement Committee, various Senior activities were planned, including the Senior Party, Senior Day, and a Senior Slogan Contest. ■ Organizations 139 Honor Societies Offer Opportunities Alpha Phi Omega is the na- tional service fraternity on campus whose purpose is to build bonds through leader- ship, friendship, and service.

Organizations 143 Review Takes on Professional Look The Review has been the source of news for the Univer- sity community for many years. The campus newspaper is published bi-weekly, with is- sues distributed on every Tuesday and Friday. The Re- view underwent several changes this year when Ross Mayhew took over as editor. The paper took on a more professional look with the aid of several syndicated political cartoons, and an increased comic section featuring the popular cartoons " Bloom County " which increased to three strips an issue, and " The Far Side " . This year, the paper took a look at several interests of University students with a three part series on sex, drugs, and rock and roll. The paper renamed its feature section to " Vivant, " and that, too, added to the professional look to the paper. Top Right: Photo Editor Lloyd Fox at Mayhew plans a layout.

Republicans and other students who feel inclined towards the party ' s ideals can join. This year, the group held surveys on student views of current events, and sponsored internships in politi- cal offices. Members campaigned for statewide can- didates in 1986. The United Campuses to Prevent Nuclear War educates the public on current issues as well as the history of nuclear weapons. This year, they sponsored dances and films as well as lobbyed in Washington, D.C. President Trebs Thompson has had a peace fund named for her which offers students up to 250 dollars a semester for research for alternate energy. Members gain satisfaction by expressing their views on such things as first strike missiles and the U.S. presence in Europe to congressmen and senators. The members sent a petition against nuclear weapons to President Reagan in Geneva. The Public Relations Student Society of America gives com- munication students the chance to gain practical knowledge of P.R. while also providin g a service to the Uni- versity as it takes on projects for University organizations.

Group members receive content information in the fit- ness nutrition areas, organiza- tional skills and invaluable com- munication and facilitation skills. A new coordinator from Wis- consin, Tim Finegan, has brought the group through many programs including Stu- dent Center Night, and the Na- tional Collegiate Driving Championships. Another division of Wellspring, the Eating Disorders Education Program, provides one to one peer counseling sessions to students with eating disorders. Dorm programs are conduct- ed on eating disorder issues. Members are chosen based on their basic understanding of eating disorders, ability to re- late to people, and willingness to go through the five-week training session. Members get satisfaction from helping and informing others who are faced with an eating problem, and have the desire to inform others about eating problems so that they are informed, and know where to seek help. The University Emergency Care Unit provides twenty- four hour a day, seven day a week medical service for the university community. The UDECU also offers public pro- grams that demonstrate what to do before the ambulance arrives, as well as offers stand- by service for events on Uni- versity property, such as foot- ball games. Members of all backgrounds join because they want to help people in need. Another organization based on saving lives is Students Against Drinking and Driving.

Organizations 159 Athletic Organizations On The Mov There are several athletic clubs at the university. The Outing Club gives students an alterna- tive for relaxation by taking them into the environment and showing them how to en- joy it. Members include under- graduates, graduates and alumni who want the chance to get away for a weekend and get into the natural envir- onment and relax. The group has gone cross country skiing, white water rafting, camping in New England and the Florida Keys, as well as sponsored weekend trips ranging from canoeing and backpacking, to caving and climbing. The University of Delaware Ski Club provides the most economical yet the most fun- filled trips to promote college skiing. The Ski Club sponsored ski trips Killington, Stowe, and Sugarbush, Vermont; Steam- boat, Colorado; as well as day trips known as Doe I and Doe The Cycling Club is made up of people who seek companions to ride with on afternoon rides.

The club participated in many races including the Newark Classic and the East Coast Cycling Championship. Another riding club, the Equestrian Club, offers infor- mation, events and activities involving horses. They also spons or an Equestrian team which actively competes in horseshows. This year fea- tured more riders than ever before participating in Inter- collegiate Stock Seat Equitation Horseshows. The team was named Reserve Champion High Point team at the Inter- Collegiate Horseshow at Kutztown College. Dana DiFlore was named Reserve Champion High Point Rider. The Club attended horseshows at Rutgers, Kutztown, Beaver, and Delaware Valley Colleges as well as at Princeton Universi- ty, and a Western horseshow at Penn State. One of the most important parts of sporting events is the cheerleaders. The football cheerleaders attended all home and away games to promote school spirit. The squad also performed for President Trabant and distinguished alumni at the Diamond Century Club dinner. Also, the squad held their an- nual high school clinic for high schools from Delaware, Mary- land, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, where cheerleaders taught the basic skills of cheer- leading to future cheerleaders. The squad finished third out of all Division I schools in sideline competition, and made it to the finals in all categories (cheer, sideline, fight song) at the summer competition at a United Cheerleading Associa- tion camp. The squad also won the award for the Most Improved cheerleading program. The basketball cheerleaders featured a young squad this year. The squad attended all home games this season and most away ones. Their main objectives were to support the basketball team and to develop the squad members to their full potential. T squad, like the football che leaders, is a spirited and act group helping to promc school spirit and sportsmansr The members are also gifl athletes themselves, as their ti ing and coordination show their gymnastic abilities. In the event that an athlete injured, the Student Athle Trainers Club provides s dents, faculty, and athletes intercollegiate teams prev tion, care and rehabilitation athletic injuries. The club v able to attend more aw games thanks to increased fu raising. Most members are fr the Physical Therapy and Spc Medicine College. The club I published TEAMWORK, a c lection of articles written by I student trainers and sent Delaware and Pennsylvania h schools. The trainers have tended the Eastern Athle Trainers Association Conferer in Grassinger ' s, New York, a have visited Eagles Traini Room. 160 Organizations Organizations 161 o O z N o z to 162 Organizations Sports and Spirits Raised Due to Success The Varsity Ice Hockey Club provides entertainment and recreation for its competing athletes as well as the public. This year, the hockey club up- graded its schedule significantly. The club was invited to the club nationals. Members of the ice hockey club get enjoyment out of playing college hockey at a highly competitive level. The team travelled much more this year than in past years, visiting Boston University, Penn State, Annapolis, and Ohio State, as well as other locales for day trips. Another club on the ice is the University of Delaware Preci- sion Skating Team. The Uni- versity of Delaware has gained national attention in the skating world as the only uni- versity in the country with a team on the competitive level. Due in part to the efforts of the team, the United States National Figure Skating Associ- ation (USFSA) is currently un- dertaking plans to create a Na- tional Collegiate division in skating competitions. Skaters of all levels join to begin or continue their involvement in competitive figure skating. The team was the Philadelphia areas champion precision team. The team has participat- ed in many competitions in- cluding those in Buffalo, N.Y., Ardmore, Pennsylvania, and Warwick, Rhode Island. The seventeen members have raised over six thousand dollars in addition to university funds to allow them to skate in the many exhibitions and area competitions. The Sailing Club instructs sailors and non-sailors alike on basic sailing and racing techniques and provides trips up and down the East Coast. The club provides for its members unlimited sailing and racing, thanks in part to its eight-boat fleet which includes two sailboards. This year, the club expanded by forming a women ' s racing team. The women ' s dinghy team won the Judges Award at the Fall Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association women ' s championship. The club raced at Navy, N.Y. Maritime, and Georgetown, as well as hosted races at its own marina. The Sailing Club sponsored a clinic taught by the Navy Board sailing team at the University in April. If first you don ' t succeed, try, try again. That ' s exactly what the new and improved Dela- ware Precision Dance Squad, otherwise known as the Pom Poms, have done. Three years ago, a similar organization failed, and this year ' s new squad is determined to succeed. The Delaware Precision Dance Squad gives girls with similar interests in performance a chance to be a part of a group that seeks to develop achieve- ment and motivation through accomplishment. Any full time undergraduate may audition for the squad. The fortunate ones that make it are selected by a panel of judges who base the scoring on dancing ability, projection and coordination. Under the leadership of cap- tain jenny Tobriner, and co- captains Nancy Beecher and Stacy Jenkins, over twenty girls aim to " perform high quality dance and precision routines to music and to help support particular organizations and athletic teams at the University through performances. " These performances include halftime routines at the men ' s varsity basketball games. Through these performances, students, faculty and visitors alike are entertained and develop enthusiasm for other activities, organizations and athletic teams at the University. The Lacrosse Club proved to be successful once again this year, playing against larger schools. The University of Delaware played host this year to the NCAA Lacrosse Finals during Memorial Weekend. Al- though the Blue Hens did not play, the event was enjoyed by all who attended, as well as those who watched the tour- nament in ESPN television. The Spirit Squad brought a new dimension to the football stadium. Members roamed the stands and encouraged fans to participate in cheers and an occasional " wave " . School spirit ran rampant throughout the season, as the Spirit Squad joined forces with the cheer- leaders and fans, to root for the Fightin ' Blue Hens. ■Opposite: Delaware defenders worry an opponent with their tight play.

It gives women with skilled soccer playing ability a chance to play competitively and intercollegiately. Although the team is not registered as a var- sity team, the Women ' s Soc- cer Club has played a chal- lenging schedule filled with several varsity teams from oth- er schools, some from as far away as Maryland and Mon- mouth, New Jersey. However, they have not played enough varsity-level teams to be considered a varsity team. However, to be considered in order to play more varsity teams, they must be considered a varsity team. Therefore, the team finds itself in a Catch-22 position. This year, the team established a respectable record of 10-4. The team was made up of highly skilled players, as this year more cuts were made, due to the turn-out of many skilled freshmen. The Gymnastics Club provides the facilities and atmosphere for students of all skill levels to work out, learn new skills, and keep in shape. This year, more effort has been made to moti- vate the club members. The club does not compete with other colleges since it is not a team. This makes it difficult for members to be motivated, since the results of their work is not seen. The club has con- centrated on finding other modes of motivation. One way of doing this was to put on exhibitions at the Terry Children ' s Psychiatric Center. Aside from seeing results from their performing, the club members are motivated simply by practicing and helping each other improve on their skills. The Rugby Team competed every weekend, usually at Lums Pond. Since it is not a University varsity team, the team did not have the recog- nition of other schools, but still managed to play several highly ranked teams including Fairleigh Dickinson University, and Princeton University. The Seido Kan Karate Club is another athletic club. The ka- rate club teaches the basics, as well as advanced levels of ka- rate. Anyone can join to learn how to fight, protect them- selves, or to just stay in shape. This year, the club first spon- sored tournament was held in the Carpenter Sports Building, bringing people from all over the area, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and as far away as North Carolina.

It helps by allowing athletes to develop into better students. Members, who have increased in number from ten to thirty this year, get the chance to " release many ten- sions and pressures that stu- dent athletes encounter during the year. They also receive the challenge and adventure of re- ceiving fesus Christ as savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the Church. " The Anglican Student Fellowship provides religious fellowship for students in the Anglican tradition. It is open to students of all religions, back- grounds, and provides a Chris- tian community for spiritual growth. The Anglican students have sponsored many pro- grams including monthly stu- dent suppers, A.S.F movie highlights, and a Nightwatch Program at St. )ohn ' s Universi- ty, New York. The Lutheran Student Associa- tion gives the opportunity for spiritual growth to the members of the university community. This year, a new campus pastor, Rev. Bruce T. Davis, was installed. Members participate in the weekly Sun- day night worship service. Besides the weekly service, the LSA has held retreats to Ocean City, Maryland with Bay Area Campus Ministries and the Bay Area Roman Catholic-Lutheran Retreat in the spring. The LSA tutored children at the Hilltop Neigh- borhood Center in Wilmington and helped with a soup kitchen at Hilltop. Hillel provides religious and social activities for Jewish stu- dents on campus. This year, membership increased, and Hillel is now able to provide transportation to nearby synagogues for holiday ser- vices, as well as holding ser- vices every Friday evening. )ewish students are welcome to all events, which in the past year included a Yom Kippur breakfast, bagel brunches, Shabbat dinners, and trips to New York city, as well as Cha- nukah celebrations. Hillel gives Jewish students a community to identify with. Koinonia aims to provide Christian social and cultural ac- tivities for university students. This is the first year that Koinonia has really been ac- tive. The group felt that its members could fill a void in the area of Christian entertain- ment, and alternative activities for those not satisfied with what was currently available. This year, Koinonia sponsored two dances with contempo- rary Christian music, set up an informal coffeehouse affair, brought in two Christian con- temporary rock groups in a major concert, as well as orga- nized Christian rock music vid- eos in the dorms, and a song- fest. Koinonia is a service organization whose principles are based on Evangelical Chris- tianity. They seek to bring to- gether Christians of all persua- sions for fun and fellowships.

Under the supervision of Executive Editor Trish Csakany, this year ' s dedi- cated staff worked from the fall of ' 85 through the summer of ' 86 to capture the year ' s events. Since UD is such a large school, the Blue Hen staff decided to take a closer look at the university in its 1986 edition. Special features were included in each section of the yearbook to focus in on various aspects of certain events. Nearly all of the pho- tography in the Blue Hen, with the exception of senior por- traits, was done by staff pho- tographers, a majority of which was done by Photo Edi- tor Robert Helman. In addition, all of the copy writing, layout, and graphic design is done by the staff. The Blue Hen Year- book is a self supporting orga- nization, raising money from the sale of books and senior portrait sittings. 168 Organizations Opposite Page: Photo Editor Robert Helman sorts through group photos.

What exactly is the difference between these? If you have trouble discerning the difference, it ' s not because you flunked vocabulary, but rather, because like most groups, the Greeks have a special language of their own. Some of these words may seem familiar to non-Greeks, yet others are exclusive to the Greek system.

The owth of the system resulted xn two factors. First, the liversity wanted to expand d diversify the Greek sys- m. Second, students dis- ayed increasing interest in iternities and sororities at the liversity. In 1984, Greeks mprised only about 9.2 ?rcent of the student jpulation. Now the ■rcentage has increased to out 10. lere are many steps involved in becoming a chapter on campus. First, all po tential fra- ternities must have a recom- mendation by the Inter Fraternity Council (IFC). The IFC is the governing body of all the fraternities. The sororities, on the other hand, have their own governing body, namely the Panhellenic council. Both fraternities and sororities are recommended to Raymond Eddy, coordinator of Greek affairs and special pro- grams. Mr. Eddy then refers the possible members to the Dean of Students and Vice President of Student Affairs. The final recommendation comes from President E. A. Trabant, who recognizes the fraternity or sorority as a colo- ny. A colony can participate in all Greek activities but is not granted the status of a chapter. In order to become a colony, students must meet five basic requirements. First, a group must have a minimum of seven people who are full- time undergraduate students at the University and who have a GPA of 2.0 or better. Then representatives from the National Organization of the particular fraternity or sorority must meet with the University Administration. The undergra- duate president of the colony must sign a statement of non- discrimination. The group must then make a formal presenta- tion to the Greek community explaining their plans and outlin- ing their reasons for establishing a colony. If all of these require- ments are met, the group must submit a written petition re- questing authorization from the University Administration to es- tablish a colony. Once the group is recognized by the University as a colony, the new fraternity or sorority must serve a one year trial pe- riod. After this period, the group may petition to the IFC or Panhellenic Council for re- cognition as a permanent chapter. The group must then raise their membership to a minimum of fifteen students. Every new fraternity or soror- ity has a different reason for forming. They also have differ- ent requirements for membership. For example, Kappa Delta Rho has fifty-one members. The brothers look for people who are serious Anxious to greet rushees, KDR broth- ers Al Chesonis, Dave Levengood, Tom Bradbury, and Frank Paganucci wait for their arrival. Talking to rushees, Phil Reich of Phi Kappa Psi uses hand gestures to em- phasize a point. about academics but who also enjoy the social aspects of a fraternity. The founding fathers of Kappa Delta Rho started as an interest group that did not want to conform to the already established fra- ternities on campus. Although neither Kappa Delta Rho nor Phi Kappa Psi have houses, both are working toward that goal. Phi Kappa Psi has forty- six brothers. The founding fathers were an interest group in Russell A and E. They are a closeknit group because they started as a group of friends who were interested in forming a chapter. The only sorority that joined the University ' s Greek system this year was Sigma Kappa. The interest at the University was very high with over 250 women attending the first meeting. The colony accepted 75 members. Sigma Kappa stresses academics as well as social interest. Although there were three new members and two old ones that were brought back on campus this year, Alpha Tau Omega and Delta Upsilon were dropped from the sys- tem, while Delta Theta formed an interest group which- was never accepted as a colony. In the future, the University can expect to see an increase in the participation of the Greek system. The University welcomes the show of growth and urges the Greek system to continue to expand. Sheryl McVitty Greeks 173 " Greek is the good life. " You hear about all the fun social activities that Greeks have- mixers, parties, semiformals — but not too many people know about the other compo- nent of Greek life, namely working for charity. A lot of time, hard work, and dedica- tion is put into raising money to donate to philanthropies. A single fundraising event may take weeks, even months of advanced organization and preparation. Not much credit is given to fraternities and sororities for their efforts; they are remembered for throwing good parties or winning the Greek Games. Fundraising is an important part of the Greek system. All fraternities and sororities hold at least one benefit a year for one or more of their philan- thropies. They raise money from a few hundred to thou- sands of dollars, which they donate wholeheartedly to charity. Although fundraising is a lot of work, it is also a lot of fun. Fundraising is an event where fraternity and sorority members can get together and share a good time, while knowing that they are helping others with their work. The most enjoyable part of the en- tire activity is when the money goes to the philanthropy. At that point, the Greek members get the satisfaction of knowing that all their hard work has ac- tually paid off. To get a better picture of Greek fundraising at UD, it is necessary to take a closer look at some of the benefit activit- ies held throughout the year. For example, in October, Sig- ma Nu held a rock-a-thon dur- ing which brothers took turns rocking for one hour shifts for a total of 168 consecutive hours. They donated the $2,000 they raised to the Dela- ware Diabetes Foundation. Also in October, Delta Tau Delta hosted a Halloween Loop. The fraternity rented buses that drove students to Wilmington bars so that they Preparing for the 5K for Bruce spon- sored by Phi Tau, a runner is given a race number Participating in PIKA ' s dance mara- thon, dancers raise money for the United Way. 174 Greeks Working for Philanthropies would not drink and drive. The money raised was dona- ted to their philanthropy, MADD. Fundraisers are not restricted to within the fraternity or so- rority; some extend over the entire Greek system. For example, in March, members of the Greek system participat- ed in the Big Brothers Big Sisters " Bowl for Kids Sake. " In May, Greeks took part in the " Jail and Bail " fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Phi Tau hosted their fourth an- nual " 5K for Bruce " in March. The race, twice named " Dela- ware ' s Best Road Race, " ran around Newark and ended at Phi Tau ' s house. The proceeds went to Bruce Peisino who was paralyzed in a football ac- cident. Phi Kappa Psi was also busy in Helping Industry for Africa, PIKA raises money by holding a haunted house. Raising money for MADD, Delta brothers sign up students for their Hal- loween Loop. March with their second annu- al " Hoops for Hunger. " Pro- ceeds from the basketball tournament were donated to the Delaware Food Bank. In April, Pi Kappa Alpha held their fourth annual dance mar- athon. Students danced for 24 hours while collecting over $3,300 for the United Way. Alpha Phi had a teeter-tooter marathon in April. They seesawed for 50 hours and raised around $2,000 for the American Heart Association. May was full of fundraising events. Zeta Beta Tau held a volleyball tournament which raised over $800 for Multiple Sclerosis. Sigma Phi Epsilon raised $500 during their " Bike for Life. " The brothers biked from Newark to Richmond, VA. Delta Tau Delta raised over $2000 for the Arthritis Foundation in their " Arthritis Road Block. " These are only a few of the fundraisers that were held this past year. From these exam- ples one can see that Greeks are involved in a lot of service work. Although Greeks are primarily social organizations, it is important that they be recognized for their service work as well. Rose Lynch Greeks175 The Little Sister Syster. Did you ever wish you had a big brother? Many girls do and were able to receive not one, but almost 50 per person. The secret these girls used was be- coming a little sister at one of the five fraternities on campus that supports a little sister program. Each of the five fraternities have an average of 20 to 30 little sisters. The major purpose of the little sister program is to give that fraternity a good image and to add a feminine touch. The little sisters help with fraternity parties by working at the door or the bar. They also organize happy hours and studybreaks for the brothers during the week, and little sisters are always there to lend their support to the brothers. A few aspects the girls like about being little sisters are that, for one, by being a little sister you are not totally com- mitted to a greek organization, but still have the benefits of being able to participate in a variety of activities. Secondly, the girls feel it is a good way to meet people and is also a lot of fun. Since the little sister system is not considered Greek, the girls are allowed to hold their own programs. Some hold separate fundraisers, such as car wash- es, or have their own weekly meeting without the brothers. Little sisters have their own governing structure and each have a big sister as an advisor. Because little sisters are a group within a group, the sisters are very close.

The council strives to strengthen and improve the Greek system by stressing scholarship, commu- nity affairs, and inter-Greek re- lations.

There are now over 350 college chapters on campuses, and over 350 alumni chapters in 44 states. The Xi Omicron chapter at the University of Delaware has maintained the beacon of ser- vice and enlightenment since April 1980 when eight young men revealed the fraternity to the university community. Since that time the chapter has had its ups and downs, but has always strived to pursue scholarship, manly deeds, and the love for all mankind. Projects of note in the past year include the presentation of two scholarships to gradu- ating high school students of merit, donations to the Nation- al Kidney Foundation, Dela- ware for Africa, United Negro College Fund, Martin Luther King, )r. Center For Social Change, The Layton Home of Wilmington, Delaware State Trio Organization, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dela- ware.

It was a special honor for the brothers to participate in Hands Across America which passed through Newark. Through a great deal of hard work with alumni, Lambda Chi brothers are proud to an- nounce the renovation of the Chapter House. During the summer the brothers put over $175,000 into an addition and revamping of the existing structure. This increase in size will help accommodate the growing brotherhood.

Phi Psi is a closeknit group of over 50 members that started two years ago as a group of friends who joined together and built the chapter on their own. This fact made Phi Psi a strong unit dedicated to making the fraternity one of the best on campus. They have made great strides in becoming a very active or- ganization.

March also marked Phi Kappa Psi ' s first year anniversary. In May, the brothers of Phi Psi held their second annual picnic at Lums Pond, and had their Spring Formal which was held at the Stone Barn in Pennsylva- nia. All in all.

Over the decades, Phi Tau has estab- lished strong traditions of excellence and achievement in academics, social activities, and service projects. The fraternity won several honors in the re- cent past including the Admin- istrative Excellence Award, the Hap Angelo " Most Improved Chapter " Award, and the 1985 Down Under " Most Popular Fraternity " Award. Phi Tau was busy in the ' 85 ' 86 academic year, holding many social and service events. In the fall, they held their annual Parents Day. They also sponsored a Children ' s Day for the children of the Our Lady of Grace Home for Children of Newark. On the first of March, Phi Kappa Tau hosted their fourth annual " 5K for Bruce. " The race was named " Delaware ' s Best Road Race of 1985 " by the News Journal and the pro- ceeds of the race were given to the Bruce Peisino Foundation. Spring was full of other activities such as Founder ' s Day, the annual Greek Week Toga Party, and a spring formal. During Greek Week, Phi Tau undertook the responsibility of sponsoring the traditional " Looking Fit " contest. Rose Lynch " Hello runners!

Bostwick Pi Kappa Alpha | n K A Pi Kappa Alpha has exper- ienced a year of s uccess and growth. The brotherhood, growing to nearly 100 members, has worked hard on a variety of projects this year. The newest feature was their firetruck, a national Pi Kappa Alpha mascot. The truck, painted bright red and displaying the fraternal letters and shield, was seen at such functions as tailgates and Greek Games. Pika has also maintained an ex- tremely active and diversified social calendar. Social events included mixers, Homecoming, Spring Weekend at Wildwood, NJ, infamous " turn-pike " progressive parties, a spring break party, as well as a variety of other party themes. Showing off their national mascot, PIKA brothers rest on their fire engine between events at Greek Games. Enjoying one of their favorite activit- ies, the PIKA brothers tailgate at Homecoming. Attaining a good balance between academics and a strong social calendar is impor- tant to the brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha. This is obvious in the fact that they attained the highest Greek GPA on campus in the fall. The Pikes are strongly repre- sented in various campus or- ganizations, such as varsity athletics, ROTC, IFC, Order of Omega, RSA, and SAA. This year ' s community service efforts were highlighted by the 4th Annual Dance Marathon for the United Way and the Haunted House for Industry for Africa. This devotion to helping the community has earned Pika the National, Re- gional, and University commu- nity service awards. They were also awarded their Re- gional Pledge Education and Campus Chapter Management awards. Pi Kappa Alpha believes that both working and partying to- gether form strong bonds of friendship. Their ritual has welded these bonds of friendship since the fraternity was founded in 1868.

They held the first annual " Friday the 13th -Jason Parties " party. Also, in celebration of their 75th anniversary, Sig Nu had a black tie formal at the Philadel- phia Zoo ' s treehouse. Sig Nu also had a successful season in athletics, while field- ing intramural teams in most of the sports offered. Also, they had a strong showing during Greek Week.

After receiving their charter in March of 1985, Sig Ep came back in the fall to move into their historic house next to Old College. Built in the early 1900 ' s, Sig Ep ' s house is one of the oldest Sig- ma Phi Epsilon houses in the country. In the fall, Sig Ep had the largest brotherhood on campus, as well as the highest grade point average. At this time, they boast 110 brothers, and are continuing to grow. Community service has been a top priority with Sig Ep this year. Some of their activities included: helping out at the Delaware State Hospital during bingo night, participating in Celebrating Sig Ep ' s victory in the keg toss, Bob Healy and brothers express their excitement. Overpowering Theta Chi, the Sig Ep team tugs its way to victory at Creek Games. Daffodil Day with the Ameri- can Cancer Society, assisting with Special Olympics basket- ball, and volunteering their ser- vices in the Liberty Run, Com- munity Day, and various Newark events. This year Sig Ep sponsored the first annual Bike for Life to raise money for the American Heart Association. Some 30 brothers biked to Sigma Phi Epsilon headquarters in Rich- mond, Virginia. This event raised over $500, and Sig Ep is looking forward to next year ' s race. Additionally, this has been a fabulous year for Sig Ep athletically. For the second year in a row they won the Phi Tau Run for Bruce in the fraternity division, and placed first in a regional Sig Ep Softball tournament at Villanova Uni- versity. The highlight of the year was winning the presti- gious and sought after Creek Games, as well as being the overall Greek Week champi- ons.

With over 60 brothers and strong alumni support, TKE has worked for the community by sponsoring several fundraisers aimed at helping the children at St. Judes Hospital. A strong broth- erhood has helped TKE in striving for and achieving high goals.

As the ranks of the brother- hood swell with the induction of each new pledge class, Theta Chi ' s fusion of brawn and brain has never been more apparent. The addition of varsity lettermen and Dean ' s List candidates has solidified the fraternity ' s place in the University community.

The fraternity was founded on the principles of manhood, scholarship, perseverance, and uplift. Psi Zeta chapter to Omega Psi Phi was chartered at the Uni- versity of Delaware on April 18, 1974. It was the first black fraternity at the University. To- day, over forty men have crossed Omega ' s burning sands. Psi Zeta chapter is both a ser- vice and social fraternity.

The games consisted of goldfish swallowing, won by AEPi; a marshmallow stuff; a grape toss, won by Phi Sig; an egg toss; a bat race; and an apple chin carry. Also on Sunday, Gary Bonas, a Sig Ep alumnus, gave a speech on the alcohol liability program in Smith. On Monday the 21st, fraterni- ties and sororities were tested on their knowledge of trivia.

After the opening ceremonies, fraterni- ties and sororities began fiercely competing in the Greek Games held on Hartshorn Field. The games consisted of eight events: The keg toss, obstacle course, re- lay race, chariot race, mattress carry, softball throw, volks- wagon push, and tug-of-war. The keg toss, in which contes- tants see who can throw a keg the farthest distance, was won by Alpha Chi and Sig Ep. TKE took second place, KA third. The obstacle course, which in- cluded hurdles, crawling under nets, running through tires and other tests, was won by Phi Sig and KA. Second place winners were Alpha Sig and PIKA. Third place went to AOPi and Theta Chi. Sig Ep and Alpha Phi captured first in the relay race. Phi Tau took second and Lambda Chi took third. Alpha Phi also won the chariot race along with TKE. PIKA and Phi Tau came in second and third, respectively. The mattress carry was won by Alpha Sig and AEPi. Second place winners were Alpha Phi and Sig Ep; third place winners were AOPi and Theta Chi. KA and Phi Sig took first place in the softball throw. Alpha Chi and Phi Psi came in sec- ond, while Alpha Phi and PIKA came in third. The volkswagon push, a very popular and traditional event, had to be cancelled this year. In the first round of competi- tion, three sorority members from two different teams were injured, forcing the event to be stopped. The final, and perhaps most competitive event, was the tug-of-war.

MAIN STREET NEW LONDON RD Tailgate Tradition Continues Football Games Provide Great Reason for Parties The leaves are changing colors and there is a snappy, crispy feeling in the air. It is sweat shirt weather. The laziness of sum- mer is over and the harsh realities of exams, term pa- pers, and lab reports are inevitable. That ' s right, fall se- mester has begun. But don ' t fret, the party isn ' t over because summer is gone. Tailgating is going to make everything better. Tailgating. It is every Delaware student ' s favorite Saturday afternoon pastime. Football games are a great excuse for the day long party event. Tailgating has three strikes against it: it begins early in the morning (well, 10:00 a.m. is early enough), it is on a Satur- day (the morning after that big party at the Towers), and it continues in all weather (yes, rain or shine). However, this does not discourage the hun- dreds of diehard Blue Hens fans who come in search of thrills and chills, not necessarily for the game, but for the perfect tailgate. The novice tailgater first begins by taking the university bus to the stadium, an adventure in itself, and then walks " the loop " around the entire stadium in search of A) friends, B) free beer, C) food, D) tales from the night before, E) all of the above. Usually by the third year at the university, students are ready to take on the chal- lenge of creating their own On time and in tune. The UD March- ing Band ' s horn line plays the National Anthem before the Lehigh game at Delaware Stadium. tailgates instead of bumming from everyone else. Finding a perfect place to park in order to begin tailgating can be an experience of its own. Everyone knows how much fun it is to park anywhere in Newark. The best spots for tailgates are usually by the )ohnn -on-the-spots (no pun intended) behind the stadium fence. The reasons are obvious, just use your imagina- tion. For some people tailgating is a serious affair, and the diversity of the setups is amazing. Some tailgaters have elaborate buffets with tablecloths and gourmet food that only a true food connoisseur can appreciate. Fine white wine is also a must (no Riunite please). But simple parties are just as fun with ample kegs of Bud Whatever the case, tailgating indeed the answer to the p summer doldrums. You do even need a football ticket go. Does anyone ever go watch the games? -Patty Talon Partying in true Delaware style, these students enjoy some pre-game festivi- ties complete with keg, munchies, and a real tailgate. Program sellers are a part of a foot- ball Saturday ' s atmosphere. This stu- dent tries to sell programs at the Dela- ware vs. Lehigh game. Saturdays are best spent with friends. These Blue Hens fans obviously agree as they take time out on a Saturday morning to enjoy a few beers at a tail- gate. The Event of the Seasoi Uproarious Crowd Delights in Hens ' Victory Over Nav You knew it was going to be something special when you first picked up your ticket stubs. A notice told you to redeem your stubs quickly, or they would be sold to the public. Definitely a phenomenon since tickets are easily obtainable any time before a home game. What was all the hullabaloo? The answer: Navy, the most prestigious visiting football team in Delaware history, was coming to town. In anticipa- tion of greater demand, the university made available to students an extra 1,000 tickets and raised the general admis- sion price from $9.00 to $12.00 per ticket. It proved to be a wise move as all 6,853 student tickets were claimed by the Wednesday before the game, making this the largest number of tickets distributed free since the Temple Owls rolled into Delaware Stadium in 1973. The last meeting between Delaware and Navy was in 1931, with the Hens losing 12- 7. But this was Sept. 14, 1985 and the 54-year-old loss was the last thing on the minds of the sellout crowd of 23,115 that gathered in Delaware Stadium on a glorious Saturday afternoon. Students and alumni alike had come to see Heisman Trophy candidate Napoleon McCallum meet his Waterloo. And meet it he did as Navy fell to Dela- ware ' s overpowering defense 16-13. It was a happening in- deed with ecstatic fans crown- ing the victory by toppling the south end zone goal post.

Caught in the Queue Waiting in Line Sidelines Delaware Students Did you ever think when you enrolled in college that you were enrolling yourself in a line that ran non-stop for four years? It all started at the new stu- dent program. Waiting in line with other petrified freshmen, you registered for classes, not realizing at the time that you had signed up for calculus, which met at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Fri- day . . . groan . . . By the end of the first week here, you had flat feet and gorilla arms from waiting in line at the bookstore with an entire semester ' s bookload in your arms. And, if that weren ' t bad enough, it always seemed as if the line you waited in to sell those same books back (at under half price if the bookstore was willing to buy them) was twice as long as the line you waited in to buy them . . . double groan . . . Another line you became fa- miliar with was the thrice an- nual rhumba line at the regis- tration office. Now did you ever see anything so stupid and so avoidable in your life? You trotted down there to turn in your Fall, Winter, or Spring Semester registration form thinking, " It ' s 4:00 p.m. on the last day of registration. Everybody else is very efficient and has already turned his her form in, so I ' ll be the only one there. " Yeah . . . right . . . then you went through the door and there were 700 people in line ahead of you. Don ' t for- get to follow the ropes! And how about those dining hall lines? You got there at lunchtime, famished, and were greeted by those same 700 people waiting in line on the steps. As you advanced to- ward the checker, you tried to find out what was for lunch. " Good, it ' s pizza. " Then you tried to find your ID. " I had it a minute ago. Geez, where is it? I don ' t have time to go get it, and I don ' t have the money to buy lunch either . . . Oh, good, here it is. " The line advanced little by little until finally you got to the food line itself. Now any num- ber of things could have hap- pened: 1) They were out of pizza and you had to eat chickenhead sandwiches; 2) They were out of everything, and you had to wait for them to bring more food from the kitchen. (In other words, you went nowhere fast.); 3) You got your food but couldn ' t find a table. ( " It seems like we ' ve been walking around this place for hours. My bag is getting really heavy. " ) When you tried to leave, there was a wolfpack at the tray area. Once again, you had to wait in line. Standing there patiently, not bothering a soul, you were stabbed in the back with a tray. Some loser wasn ' t looking where he was going. You finally made it out of the dining hall and vaulted to your next class. The chickenhead in your stomack started to peck at you, and you thought, " I can ' t wait for dinner. " Then you stopped, suddenly realiz- ing that night ' s dinner was London broil, steamed shrimp, and baked potatoes (alias Reef and Beef or Surf and Turf). That meant that the line for the dining hall would be backed up to the door of the dorm. Of course, there were other frustrating lines on campus. How about the drop add lines? They were particularly enjoyable Spring Semester when it was ten degrees outside. Bundled up in your winter wools, you went to the drop add site; but once you were there, you nearly fainted from the heat. The biggest joy of drop add had to be waiting in line for hours, getting to the front, and then being told that the last space in the section you want- ed was just filled by the per- son in front of you. Worthy of mention are the library check out lines. They were usually short, but they could take forever when the person in front of you checked out eight books. Also worthy of mention is the inspection exit line. Granted it was for security purposes, but it was so embarrassing to have the beeper go off when you passed through it. " I am not a criminal! It ' s my keychain! " Other frustrating lines included the wait for a washer in the laundry room. It figured that the person in front of you hadn ' t done his her laundry for eight weeks. It goes without saying that after you got your clothes washed, you had to wait in line for a dryer. Did someone say mildew? While you ' re on the subject of mildew, how about waiting in line for a shower? Dorm and apartment dwellers can both appreciate that hassle. " What do you mean you have class in two hours? I have class in 20 minutes. Get out of the sho er! " They finally did, but th some sneak took your pi; while you were back in yc room looking for yc toothbrush, and you fou yourself waiting in line agaii The bus terminal at Smith notorious for its lines.

This easy access to mass informa- tion is restructuring student education at Delaware. When only a few years ago comput- ers were the realm of engi- neers and computer science majors, now their use has be- come so widespread that they are used to teach English and classical languages. Each fresh- man gets his her dose of com- puters through the Plato as- signments that are required in many introductory level courses. Under an extremely ambitious program of computer integra- tion into course work, the high tech age as seeped into mainstream student life. Now- adays, even English and graphic arts majors have be- gun to take advantage of the word processing and comput- erized graphic software the university has to offer. It is probably just a matter of time before the newly installed phone lines allow for comput- ers in the residence halls. Unfortunately, with such easy access to information comes abuse. In its March 18, 1986 is- sue, The Review shocked the Delaware community with the revelation that student hackers could penetrate with relative ease confidential files concerning finances and grades. In a story that was picked up by major news me- dia, The Review stated that it was possible for the hackers to tamper with the files. The fault was blamed on lax university policy concerning passwords. Compounded to this was the fact that students and the administration shared the same Burroughs computer system. The university, under require- ment of the 1974 Privacy Act, took immediate steps to curtail the student hackers by restrict- ing access knowledge of pass- words, limiting student use on the Burroughs system, and expediting the transfer of restricted information to the new IBM system. The adminis- tration then proceeded to hire convicted hacker Ian Murphy to investigate the breach in the system. The news that student hackers can penetrate confidential files is grim tidings for university officials. Oppo- site a university student captures the gravity of the situation on a Z-29 ter- minal in the basement of Smith Hall. (L Oo j l eOrvk- Hauntingly Familiar Delaware Ghosts Ride the Loop in Wilmington That one night a year, full moon or not, when all the ghosts and goblins — and punkers — go out on the town is Halloween loop night. This year the town was Wilmington, and bars such as Oscar ' s, Calluchio ' s, and The Greenery were favorite haunt- ing grounds of University of Delaware ghosts, witches, and rock ' n ' roll animals. Private parties became forests of fantasy as well. David Bow- ie and Peter Gabriel proteges could usually be found drink- ing beer together, while nu- merous others tried to play doctor with a stethoscope and general anesthesia. It is the one night when the ordinary becomes even more ordinary and the extraordinary becomes commonplace. It ' s too bad Halloween is only once a year. -Mike Quigley Arriving in Wilmington, lunior Laurie Hemphill heads for Oscar ' s. Crowded with traffic, Main Street is always a busy thoroughfare. With its good food and charming atmosphere, Klondike Kate ' s is one of Main Street ' s most popular restau- rants. Kate ' s front porch is especially popular on warm Friday afternoons. (L CltKtt . c id Convenience, Charm Main St. Provides Unique Stores Often times we are too busy with our daily activities to take no- tice of the things that make our lives a bit simpler. Take Main Street for example. How many times have we run to Roy Rogers for a bite to eat in between classes? Or how many times have we grabbed a soda at The Corner Deli on our way to class? We tend to overlook the convenience that Main Street offers us. However, many people have realized that Main Street is a valuable shopping area. These people include not only cus- tomers, but store owners as well. In fact, this year Main Street has seen more than a dozen new businesses open. Hillary ' s, CVS, Name Droppers, and TCBY are but a few of the " new kids " on the block. Although many people feel that investing in Main Street is profitable, others believe that Main Street will not be able to compete with the surrounding shopping plazas and malls. However, these disbelievers do not understand the charm of Main Street. There are some unique gift shops and Scott ' s Gourmet Ice Cream is just one of the many ice cream parlors on Main Street. Delaware Today Maga- zine calls its home made flavors the best in Delaware. Main Street provides U of D students a convenient shopping district within walking distance of campus. boutiques that cannot be found in shopping malls. For example, Name Droppers of- fers personalized gifts, while The Gypsy Trader offers unique clothing. Also, Grassroots carries a variety of handmade clothing and gifts. Main Street has a relaxed atmosphere as opposed to the pressured and rushed atmosphere of a mall. You can browse casually through any store without feeling pres- sured to buy anything. This relaxed atmosphere makes shopping on Main Street a pleasure. Another advantage to Main Street is that it is not crowded like a mall. You do not have to wait forever at a checkout line, and you do not get pushed around by the mobs of people. Finally, Main Street has a small-town charm that no shopping mall can du- plicate. The sales clerks are friendly and usually recognize you if you frequent the store. Many times the sales clerks are students who not only enjoy earning an extra dollar, but also enjoy getting to know the people who make up the uni- versity. -Debbie Smith CL CJU l jftrfrk- Wall Murals itudent Paintings Decorate Cinder Block Dorm Walls c inder block walls are ugly. Remember those awful Rodney and Harrington dorm rooms and hallways? Fortunately, art has come to Newark. Wall murals are a fun, artistic way to liven up the atmosphere of the dorm lounges and hallways. Begun by an art major who lived in Harrington B, the wall mural has become a symbol of expression for many dorm residents. The night John Lennon was murdered, a pas- tel portrait and the words " and in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make " appeared on a wall on first floor Harrington B. Today, with the approval and assistance of the universi- ty, one can find album covers, cartoon characters, animals, sports logos, and quotations. One unique mural is a facsimile of the Lowenbrau Lion by Gregg Davis and Mike Quigley across from 108 Harrington A. Truly a unique art form, the wall mural has become a sym- bol of on-campus housing and resident creativity, as well as a memorial to former university students. -Mike Quigley The facsimile of the Lowenbrau lion decorates the wall across from 108 Harrington A.

However, the two-week vacation seems a small amount of time in which to recover from the trauma of first semester. If you do attend Winter Session, however, then you will have an additional six weeks of re- covery time. The only problem with that alternative is figuring out how to occupy your time for eight weeks. You could always go skiing with the Ski Club every weekend, that is if you have a small fortune to spend. Then there is always the lure of the southern beaches. But baking in the sun for eight weeks would probably get boring, not to mention causing a se- vere lack of motivation to re- turn to school. You could get a job and save up money for second semester. But who wants to work over vacation? How about staying home and catching up on your favorite soap opera? But then you would probably turn into a vegetable and go through withdrawal when your second semester classes meet during the time of your soap. The only viable solution is to at- tend Winter Session. Actually, the university requires you to have 124 credits to graduate which means that you have to either attend one Winter Session or take an overload of courses for one semester. However, Winter Session can be a fun time. If you take only one course then you will have plenty of free time in which to play. Because most people have a lot of free time, there are usually parties every night. In fact, Winter Session has a reputation of being a six week party. However, if you are one of the unlucky souls who has to take two courses, you might not find Winter Session such a pleasant experience. So unless you absolutely have to take two courses over Winter Session, don ' t. The best way to spend the eight week period between the end of December and the beginning of February is to take a course abroad. That way you could go to Greece or Switzerland and get credit for playing. If only we could convince our parents of this wonderful idea. -Debbie Smith Frolicking in the snow, these students have some fun in front of the Pencader Commons. Newark Nightspots Bars offer never ending weekend Never on Sunday, Monday ' s too soon . . . Tuesday and Wednesday just won ' t do . . .

At local bars the weekend never ends, and every night of the week students like to think the night will never end. Monday night, if you ' re not still feeling hungover from the weekend, you can indulge in shrimp at the Down Under ' s all-you-can-eat shrimp feast. Or if a mug of cold beer sounds more appealing than a plate of pink crustaceans, Monday night is the well- known mug night at the Deer Park-45 t refills your Deer Park mug. " The Deer Park is a good place to get together with friends in a relaxed atmosphere similar to that of a London pub, " said Suzanne Goldstein (AS 86). For something to do on Tuesday and Thursday nights, you can check out the Down Under ' s " Alternatives, " which has become very popular with the eighteen and over crowd. " Thursday night lines are out the door, " said Laura Alston (NU 89). " I love it, you can forget about everything and dance the night away! " Stu- dents under twenty-one can enjoy the bar scene complete with dance contests, live DJ, and even bathroom lines. The Stone Balloon has re- cently become a hot spot on Wednesday nights with its la- dies ' night offer of 50 t drinks. Also new to the Balloon is Thursday night ' s mug night — 50 J: fills up your mug. " Mug night is cheap, not as crowded as Friday night, and people I know go, " said )ohn Eckerson (BE 87). The Thursday night crowd seems to be split between the Balloon and half- price nachos and pitchers at the Deer Park. If the week has not yet ex- hausted you, the fun has just begun. Friday night ' s happy hour at the Balloon offers a great outlet for many. " It ' s a great way to wind down after a long week, " said Jeff Rosen (BE 87). " Drinks are cheap, spirits are high, and chicks are abounding. " For many, happy hour at the Balloon is a night to look forward to all week. You can always count on a good, lively crowd. For those who wish to avoid the Balloon crowds, Bennigan ' s is a popular alterna- tive with its new dance floor and D). Both Friday and Satur- day nights offer popular happy hour prices. On Sunday nights you can listen to a jazz band at the Deer Park or folk singers at the Down Under.

The transformati on is quick and amazing; it is al- most like seeing Jekyll and Hyde in action. The student ' s eyes light up and his her mouth begins to form an ex- tremely incriminating, impish grin. Could this be the secret behind the Mona Lisa ' s smile? Spring Break. Those two words can bring out the beast in the best of us, and they usually do. It is the time to cut loose and to have some fun in the sun. Ten glorious days to be footloose and fancy free, what more could a college stu- dent ask for? Delaware students enjoyed this happy fiesta in various ways. Anything went, whether it was indulging in the illicit atmosphere of Ft. Lauderdale, camping in the calm breezes of Key West, shopping at the incredible straw markets in Freeport, or just spending the time at home with Mom and Dad. For some students, Spring Break meant it was time to worship the great sun king on some sandy shore far away from Newark or to indulge in " Blue Hawaiians " at The But- ton. It was the perfect excuse for the over-worked college student to make a total fool out of himself — and no one cared. Passing out in a closet in a cramped Florida hotel room and entering an erotic banana eating contest with someone he she had just met continued in the Ft. Lauderdale tradition. For other students, a good home cooked meal and Mom doing the laundry during Spring Break seemed like para- dise. It was a great time to catch up on some much need- ed sleep or to finally get around to those five chapters of psychology. Another fun thing to do dur- ing break was to go home with your roommate, at what- ever exit on the jersey turn- pike, and laugh because his her hometown was smaller than yours. Mixing with the yuppies at various night spots in New York City, Philadelphia, or Wilmington were other choices for those students who didn ' t have the money for get-away-from-it-all vaca- tions. Visiting nearby beaches was also a popular alternative. Sitting on the deck of th Rusty Rudder or strolling o the beach in Dewey almo; made you feel as if you wer in Florida — well, maybe if th weather had been fort degrees warmer. Whether it was heading fc that sunny Utopia, using th free time to look for a summe job, or just being a couch pc tato all week, most student agreed that doing their ow thing during Spring Break wa the right thing. -Patty Taloric The International Bazaar in Freeport, Bahamas houses a straw market and wares from various countries and is a popular stop for Spring Break vaca- tioners.

Whatever the reason, I Lauderdale has always been e place to spend Spring eak. However, this trend I ay soon be changing due to 3 enactment of stricter laws lich prohibit drinking on the ;ach. any students changed their nginal vacation plans to Ft. Uderdale after hearing about I? new drinking laws. In fact, l?re was an estimated fifteen | rcent decrease in vacation- [ to Ft. Lauderdale this year i students found alternative I aches that did not impose any drinking laws. Cities such as Daytona Beach, Clearwater, and Key West reported record Spring Break attendance, which may explain the de- crease in vacationers in Ft. Lauderdale. However, Ft. Lauderdale bars put up a good fight against the new drinking laws. Most bars on the strip stayed open prac- tically twenty-four hours a day and offered drink specials around the clock. For example, Penrod ' s and The Button offered 50 t drafts every day between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Others bars ran specials which included free T-shirts along with specially priced drinks at certain hours. Aside from the new drinking laws, there were other changes that made this year ' s Spring Break different from previous ones. For example, police constructed a concrete wall running the length of the strip which acted as a barrier between motorists and pedes- trians. This wall ensured that pedestrians could safely walk up and down the strip at their leisure. Another noticeable change was the beefed-up po- lice force. Police were sta- tioned at every corner making sure that both motorists and pedestrians obeyed each oth- er ' s right of way. Police also patrolled the beaches to enforce the new drinking laws. Although the police presence put a damper on Spring Break- ers ' fun, it made the streets much safer and the beaches less obnoxious, and it also cut down on litter. Although there were many ex- tra inconveniences this year, students still managed to have a good time. " This year I had a more enjoyable time on the beach because people were less rowdy and more into soaking up the sun, " said Pen- ny Nathanson (AS 88). All of this year ' s changes did not al- ter the infamous Spring Break contests. There were still wet T-shirt and wet willy contests at various bars. There were still the roof-top and balcony parties at many hotels. And there was still the sun, the surf, and the sand. However, many people doubt that Ft. Lauderdale will ever regain its previous Spring Break attendance. And if in fact stu- dents decide to migrate else- where for Spring Break, will Ft. Lauderdale become another crowdless beach like Miami? We will have to wait until next year to find out. -Debbie Smith Spring Fever Epidemic Outbreak Leaves Students Itching for Summer It was in the air. Its pres- ence was indelible. Walking to class was no longer a daily grind. In fact, it was enjoyable — well, almost. Sitting through a whole lecture, on the other hand, soon became a major test of endurance. Some people recognized its arrival through the beauty of the budding crocuses. For oth- ers, a definite sign was the first appearance of the Cinzano umbrellas on the porch of Klondike Kate ' s. Robert Frost probably de- scribed it best when he said, " Nature ' s first green is gold, her hardest hue to hold. " No, he wasn ' t describing the big patch of dirt that forms every year at that time in the middle of Harrington beach, or the change in its appearance after one of those famous Dela- ware showers. The time had come to dust off the skateboards, pump some air in the bicycle tires, and break out the " Jams. " That ' s right, spring had sprung, and summer wasn ' t far behind. Neither were final exams, for that matter, but who was counting them? From the blooming trees on Main Street, to the first games of ultimate frisbee on the Mall, spring fever was clearly alive and well in Newark. Delaware students knew it was time to drag out the lawn chairs to favorite sunning spots and work on fading Spring Break tans. Savage tans were definitely in during spring, and narcissism was the rule of thumb. Besides, the rays were free and the tanning salon was getting expensive. Delaware students were even willing to brave the elements for fashion ' s sake once spring fever had struck. It may have been only 55 degrees outside, but if it looked like 80 degrees, who needed a coat? A trot from a student ' s Pencader dorm to Memorial Hall (or any place of equal distance) on a chilly morning usually cleared up this misconception about the weather. But it wasn ' t long before wool coats were aban- doned permanently in favor of Hawaiian shirts and splashed print shorts. Spring was also the time of year for love (or, in some cases, lust) and was the perfect time to hone in on that bedazzling blonde you ' d been ogling in the dining hall all se- mester, or to ask out the Tom Selleck look-alike from your Spanish class. Blowing off classes was down to an art form by the time spring rolled around, and pro- crastination was at its peak Didn ' t Mom always say it wa: important to be out in the sun shine instead of being inside ai day?

Sounds of Newark Artists Lend Musical Variety The local music scene has changed rather dramatically in the past year. A few years ago, the Newark music scene consisted of student bands playing Skid Row, the Student Center, or the bars on Main Street. Occasionally, and only occasionally, could one catch a Philly band through a special show. Although beginning bands can still be seen in such showcases as the Deer Park, 3 Cheers, and the university ' s SPA-run Underground series in the Stu- dent Center, it is also possible to see bigger name entertain- ment in Newark. Popular club bands such as Tommy Conwell ' s Young Rumblers and Beru Revue can be seen at local bars or special Student Program Association shows. In addition, many nationally known acts have been coming to Newark. Last May, SPA pre- sented Santana in the Field House and in April, Modern English. The Stone Balloon has also made an effort to attract such national and diverse acts as Leon Redbone, The Alarm, Lone Justice, )oan jett, Ray Charles, Chaka Khan, Warren Zevon, Cheap Trick, Flock of Seagulls, Southside Johnny, and Al Stewart. The availability of such differ- ent levels of music- production allows students th chance to see acts they liste to on radio and record and t see bands that may rise t stardom one day. For instance four years ago in Bacchus an. two years ago in Carpentei SPA presented the contracl less band from Philly, Th Hooters. Today The Hooter have a gold album on Colurr bia Records, top-ten single; and videos on MTV.

Community Day Newark Residents Meet UD Students Each year, members of the university and residents of Newark get together to show their community spirit. This annual tradition has be- come known as Community Day and takes place every September. This year, the day long festivi- ties on the Mall included clowns, balloons, and games for the kids, and food and crafts for the adults. In addi- tion, many university organiza- tions took advantage of the opportunity Community Day offered to tell students and residents about their pro- grams. The kids in the crowd were able to play with baby chick- ens brought in by the College of Agriculture, while some of the day ' s older participants had the chance to burn off ex- cess calories at an aerobics class. Other diversions included a concert and the chance to get one ' s face painted in a variety of colors and patterns.

" Divestment Controversy U of D in South Africa The University of Dela- ware campus was marked by visible signs of protest this year, protest against the South African sys- tem of apartheid. As with so many other American universi- ties, the most concrete form of protest was directed to- ward the divestment of uni- versity portfolio holdings in companies which did business in South Africa. All tolled, $47.5 million of the university ' s $200 million portfolio was in- vested in companies which had dealings in South Africa. Student protestors argued that continued investment in South Africa only increased the eco- nomic resources available t the minority white govern ment and urged the board o trustees to sever all economii ties with any corporation do ing business there. The board of trustees however, voted 24-1 on De cember 13 to reject the cal for divestment, ignoring th demands of student protestor: and the faculty senate. Instead, the board agreed tc continue its policy of only in vesting in companies which adhered to the Sullivar Principles, the code of ethica conduct for companies oper- ating in South Africa.

Student Protest in the 80 ' s: Activism vs. Apathy Although today ' s college students are frequently criticized for being less socially conscious than their 60 ' s predecessors, the numerous campus organizations involved in social political protests this year showed that student activism is alive, if not exactly kicking, in the 1980 ' s: • In a display of gay uni- ty, a group of 65 homo- sexuals and homosexual sympathizers marched on Sam ' s Steak House to protest what they felt was the unfair treatment of a lesbian couple by Sam ' s management. • University women sought to express their beliefs by joining with 125,000 Pro-Choice demonstrators in a " March for Women ' s Lives " in Washington, D.C. on March 9, 1986. • Women also gathered in Newark on November 7, 1985 to express their outrage against violence done to women. In their second annual " Take Back the Night, " approximately 120 worn en marched throug Newark to protest the late night conditions tha made it unsafe for them to go out unescorted. • In another form protest, thousands o university undergrad uates signed " A Declara tion of the Rights of Stu dents, " a petition protesting " the ever increasing tuition at the University of Delaware along with several othe issues affecting the stu dent body.

Over the course of the year, there were numerous anti-apartheid rallies aimed at the divestment of university holdings in companies operat- ing in South Africa. In their quest to make the campus aware of the conditions suffered by blacks under the South African sys- tem of apartheid, about 50 students went so far as to stage a Guerilla Theater which sponsored " protest scenarios " at various spots around campus. These demonstrations included a funeral procession down the Mall to where a mock graveyard had been erected in front of Memorial Hall. The names on the tombstones were of those who had died while in the custody of South African po- lice. Protestors gathered around the casket, which had been draped in the colors of the outlawed African National Congress, as " South African police, " dressed in khaki uni- forms, handcuffed and dragged off dissidents who shouted, " Abolish apartheid, " " UD divest! " Participants in the events also handed out literature to on- lookers, calling for the univer- sity to divest its controversial holdings. According to Jude Hand, one of the organizers of the protest, the purpose for the Guerilla Theater was " to do something political, to try to energize and inform the peo- ple about apartheid and divestment.

Here, workers prepare to do some excavating in front of Mitchell Hall. i Constructive Thinking Bulldozers and backhoes were familiar sights for students this year as work continued on various construction and landscaping projects around campus. The most ambitious of the uni- versity ' s undertakings was the expansion and renovation of the Hugh M. Morris Library, which began in November 1983 and continued throughout the 1986 academic year. Over the course of construc- tion, students watched the transformation of the water- filled pit along South College Avenue into a three-story edifice whose brick exterior seemed more in keeping with the style of the surrounding buildings than did the original library. By the end of March, however, work on the library was no longer visible from the outside as renovation of the original building began. Library staff and resources were trans- ferred to temporary locations in the addition while the contractor moved into the ex- isting library to begin work there. Matching color and texture. Workers face the addition with bricks chosen especially to match the old brick wall along South College Avenue. Using the library during the renovation became a sort of voyage of discovery for fresh- man and seniors alike as they tried to find their bearings in an often confusing maze of debris and direction signs. Library staff tried to ease the transition for students by pro- viding floor plans and an infor- mation table, but that didn ' t prevent some mild anxiety attacks when students arrived at the library the day before a term paper was due only to find that the reference room had been moved to some unknown location in the addi- tion. Fortunately, t his was the last year students had to put up with the headaches caused by the noise and confusion of construction at the library as administrators slated July 1 as the completion date for the renovation project. Other works that continued around campus this year were an addition to Newark Hall, a walkway adjoining Kent Dining Hall, and the resodding of Harrington Beach and the lawn in front of Evans Hall.

The play, an Italian farce, relates the an- tics of two zany Milan housewives and their hus- bands as they try to beat infla- tionary prices in modern day Italy. Ostensibly a situation comedy, Fo ' s play criticizes such social problems as the oppression of the working classes and the in- competence of government and union officials. We Won ' t Pay! We Won ' t Pay!, which was directed by Arnold Aronson, was per- formed at the Hartshorn Theatre from December 6-12, 1985. The technical director for the production was Allan Fanjoy. Costumes and makeup were designed by Angela Seymour, and the scenic and lighting designs were by Rob- ert Little. OL Cf dVL efirfrk- The orient is the setting of Bertolt Brecht ' s ironic parable, The Good Woman of Setzuan, which the University Theatre performed in February 1986 at the Hartshorn Theatre. In this fable, three Chinese gods are sent to earth to dis- pel the widespread rumour that " good is dead. " Through their search for a truly good person, Brecht illustrates the parable of man ' s enforced dual nature: the desire to be go od thwarted by the need to survive. The production was directed by David Ostwald, with scenic design by Calvin Morgan, cos- tumes and makeup by Cheryl Perkins, lighting design by Dan- iel Brandes, and environmental sound tapestry by Robert Moran. — Compiled from University Theatre News Name In Lights The Good Woman of Setzuan Principal Cast Shen Teh Shui Ta Naomi Bailis Yang Sun, an unemployed flier Brian Goldfarb Mrs. Yang Rena M.

The play, which included a cast of over 45 student actors, dem- onstrated the petty and selfish motivations of mankind by superimposing man ' s motiva- tions onto the creatures of the insect world. In the first act, the Capeks use butterflies to show the petti- ness of love. In the second act, the beetle, the cricket, and the fly are the devices for illustrating the rivalries of fam- ily and existence. Man ' s warlike tendency is paralleled in the third act by the ant world. Bracketing the insect world are a prologue and an epilogue, populated by humans, which emphasize the life cycle and define the moral criticisms josef and Karel Capek had of mankind.

Most students came well equipped with an arsenal of duck shoes, slickers, and umbrellas, but it wasn ' t al- ways enough to combat the hassles of going to class on a rainy day. Duck shoes were helpful for keeping your feet dry when it came to sidestepping the nu- merous puddles caused by Newark ' s uneven terrain, but they were no match when it came to fording the river of water that flooded the con- struction area between the library an d Memorial Hall. Slickers were good for .two things. One was allowing the front of your hair to get drenched because the hood was too small; the other was providing a sliding board for the rain to roll down onto your thighs, forcing you to sit through class with the ultimate discomfort: wet blue jeans. Umbrellas usually did their job of keeping you dry, but not without a certain amount of danger. There was always the chance that you would get poked in the eye, or you would be forced off the sidewalk into the mud because there wasn ' t enough room for you and everyone else ' s um- brellas. And what about those suppos- edly " waterproof " bookbags that succeeded in ruining your class notes and about $100 worth of books? It seems they were just a part of the many inconveniences of those rainy Newark days. OL CJUt A- c idL. Umbrellas and slickers are crucial to survival during Newark ' s rainy season.

Spring Fling ' 86, the outdoor festival spon- sored by SPA, kicked off at noon on Saturday, May 3 with a performance by the reggae band, Medi- tations. The music continued as the local band The Beat Clinic took the stage and rocked the crowd of students which gathered on Frazier Field behind Carpenter Sports Building.

On Sunday May 25, 1986, an estimated 4.8 million Americans joined hands to fight hunger and homelessness in America by forming a human chain that stretched from New York to Los Angeles.

Sign-up tables. were set up at the Student Center, and many campus organizations and indi- vidual students answered the call for participants even though the event was held during finals week. When Sunday arrived, over 38,000 Delawareans stood holding hands in the unbroken chain that stretched through Delaware from the Pennsylva- nia state line at Marcus Hook to the Maryland state line at Elkton.

While lounging on the Mall, this coed displays some of 1986 ' s fa- vorite fashions: flat shoes, peddle pushers, sunglasses, and Kenya bags. Fashion Trends What ' s Hot In ' 86? I If the names Reebok, Jams, Guess, or Forenza don ' t mean anything to you, then you ' re unaware of the popular fashion trends on college campuses around the nation this year. The styles for many students at Delaware included bermuda length, splash print lams shorts, bright colored Forenza sweaters, and unlaced Nike, Reebok, or Tretorn sneakers. Old standards such as Oxford cloth shirts, argyle sweaters, and docksides were still seen around campus, and it seemed as if everyone had a jean jack- et, be it Guess or Levis. The most popular size for these clothes seemed to be oversized (baggy to be exact), while paisley was a prominent pattern for blouses and blue jeans. In addition, you needed the proper accessories to com- plete the ensemble: Wayfarer sunglasses to block the pene- trating rays of the sun (and moon), a Swatch watch to let you know you were late for class, and (for the ladies) a Ke- nya bag to carry your books.

Senioritis We have all heard of this common disease that af- flicts most, if not all, seniors during their final semes- ter of college. The symptoms appear sporadically in the early stages of the disease. You find yourself calling friends you haven ' t spoken to since your sophomore year in high school instead of studying for your BU 311 exam. As the disease progresses, the symptoms become more prominent. You become physically ill by merely looking at your accounting textbook. You find it a constant struggle to attend class once a week. You watch leave it to Beaver ' reruns, only moving from the couch when the phone rings. As graduation approaches, the graduating senior is impossible to live with. It is best to leave him alone because all he is trying to do is cope with that ailment known to all as Senioritis. Seniors 281 Paul D. Buckley III Biology Craig M.

Seniors are notified through the mail whether they are elegible to graduate. Needless to say, it can be a nerve-wracking time when all of your friends have received their letters and you are faced with an empty mailbox day after day. Once you receive that long awaited letter, you can then schedule an appointment with your academic advisor to review your grades, coursework, and credit hours.

The Job Search The Career Planning and Placement Office provides many programs and workshops to help seniors prepare for their eventual careers. Early in the fall semester, there is a series of special programs to alert the campus community of the ca- reer search process. Job Jamboree, the highlight of these programs, brings together over 75 representa- tives from business, industry, and government to discuss careers in their fields. Workshops such as resume writing, interview prep- aration, and job search strategies are offered throughout the academic year to assist seniors in ob- taining employment. Most important to the graduating senior is the Campus Interview program and the credential service provided by the Career Planning and Placement Of- fice. Interviews take place during the fall and spring se- mesters. Specific information about those organiza- tions coming to campus, and their requirements, are found in weekly calendars posted in Raub Hall. A set of credentials will be maintained for each stu- dent who registers for this service. All or part of these materials may be forwarded by the office to potential employers or to graduate schools at the student ' s request.

Graduate school allows students to specialize in a subject that is important to them, whether it is for their career goals or for their personal satisfaction. Enrolling in graduate school is almost like applying to college all over again. After obtaining the applications from the schools of your choice, you must write your application essays, obtain letters of recommen- dation, take the graduate admission test required by the schools, and then wait for your letters of acceptance. diM John A.

Paying for Your Degree You think you ' re safe when you ' re a senior. That ' s it, no more money to be dished out for books, highlighters, and notebooks - it ' s all over ... or is it? As you fill out your application for graduation, you see that there is a $10 fee required with this application. They tell you that this covers the cost of your diploma and the shipping charges incurred upon its delivery to you. You figure you can swing the $10 and then instantly you ' re hit with another charge. This time it ' s for your cap and gown, and, of course, your color coordinated tassel. There goes another $18. As your wallet shrinks, you make mental plans to get to Happy Hour early while the drinks are still cheap. What about a school ring? That ' s another cool $100 or so. What about a yearbook? Let ' s not forget the $20 service charge that goes to the Career Planning and Placement Office. You have had enough. You want to get out of college and enter the ' real ' world. But don ' t forget about those unpaid student loans that await you. Seniors 321 Jeanette Long Teresa Long Jonathan Lennon Megan S.

It is a time to sort through the treasures and junk accumulated over four years at the University of Dela- ware. The first pile to sort through is old textbooks. These are the books that you felt guilty about selling back, so you saved, reassuring yourself that someday when you were in the ' real world ' you would need them for reference. Also in the pile of dusty textbooks are those other books that you paid $40.00 for but could not sell back because the Uni- versity decided to purchase the new edition for the next year. Then you have to go through all of the other odds and ends you have picked up during your four year stay in Newark. As you look at each object, you remember the story be- hind each item. The memories come flowing back as if they had happened only yesterday, not four years ago as a wide- eyed freshman in Brown Hall. Next comes the dreaded cleaning of your apartment or room. Dishes that have been accumulating throughout final exams await washing, as do the piles of laundry strewn about your bedroom. In addition, you can ' t forget to pay all those overdue bills- phone, electric, and, worst of all, the 20 parking tickets you ' ve avoided for the past four years. When all the preparation is finally through, the actual move must be undertaken. Unless you have a little help from friends, this can be the most difficult part of the move. Inevitably, there will be at least six fl ights of stairs you must climb while transporting your life ' s possessions. If that ' s not bad enough, the day you decide to move will be the hottest day of the month. If you are successful in remov- ing all your belongings from your home, the challenge of fitting them into your car must then be tackled. Once your car is packed you must fight the traffic leaving from all ends of campus. Forget about leaving campus for awhile. You ' ve worked hard. It ' s time to head for the Deer Park to have a beer with some friends! Packing the car, these three friends move out of the Towers. Moving out of Pencader F, Mark McDonaegh makes the trip from his room to his car. 380 Moving Out Moving Out 381 The arrival of Spring brings blos- soms to the trees lining South Central campus. As I put the finishing touches on the final pages of this book I feel relief, excitement, and even a bit of sadness. It is hard to believe this huge project that was undertaken over a year ago is finally completed. Being editor of this production has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences of my college ca- reer. I can only hope that The Blue Hen 1986 brings as many beautiful memories to those who open it as I know it will for me. Without the assistance of a number of people this book would have never become a reality. My sincere thanks go to Marilyn Harper and Tim Brooks for their support, advice, and encouragement throughout the year. Our organization has benefited tremendously from their involvement and concern. Thanks go to Shirley Becker, Alice McCommons, Domenick Sicilia, Freda Foote, Harris Ross, Carolyn Stone, and Joan Napolski for their assistance in making our everyday operations a little bit easier and much more pleasant. Our appreciation to Niel Weidman, Abe Orlick, and everyone from Davor for their outstanding service, quality photography, and personal interest in the production of our yearbook. From ICP, thanks go to Jim Garrett in customer service for his technical assistance. My special thanks go to Laura Cehringer for her continued help and voice of experience; to Robert Helman for his unyielding dedication and photographic talent; and to Valerie Hayes for her commitment and positive attitude. To the editors and officers who gave part of themselves for this book - Debbie, Chris, Cathy, Barri, Raeleen, Christian, Julie, Rose, Nancy, Chris, and Jill - CONGRATULATIONS! Your hard work and dedica- tion are evident in the quality of this book. Finally, I would like to thank my family and friends for putting up with me during the past year and for giving me their support along the way. And, yes, it was all worth it!
