Wagner 10 Student Life Student life can best be described as a constant mix of friends and events propelling us through our college years. It was what got us through each week, and the most remembered times of our stay here. Think of Homecoming, one of the highlights of each fall semester; A time of celebration and rivalry which each student looked forward to with anticipation and concerts like Cyndi Lauper when students can relax and enjoy contemporary music, away from day to day studying. Theatrical plays put on by the talented Florida Players was an outlet for artistic talent. The Halloween Ball allowed students to get as weird as they wanted. Even studying, in groups or by yourself, and playing intramural sports were physical and mental outlets from school pressure. All these things combined to make college years memorable and a time of growth. They helped us choose our priorities and deal with every day pressures. Starting at the beginning, it ' s a part of us ' till the end.

Colon Student Life Gallery 13 1 A lone skydiver drifts downward on a sunny Saturday afternoon 1) Williston Sky Divers Inside Gainesville: It ' s Not Just Ole Hogtown Anymore 14 Inside Gainesville Gainesville, a city of only some 80,000 residents, 33,000 of which were students, was definitely not what one would call a metropolitan city. But, students found the city to host many possibilities for extracurricular activities. Lake Wauburg, located a few miles from campus, offered recreational possibilities to every student who loved the outdoors such as canoeing, skiing, windsurfing, swimming and sailing. The Hippodrome, Gainesville ' s civic theater, entertained students with plays such as " Amadeus " and " Turning Over. " During the year, the Hippodrome struggled to continue as it suffered financial setbacks and was found to violate numerous fire codes. The Williston Sky Divers offered free skydiving for those interested in the sport. The Park, a hot tub rental establishment, offered many hours of relaxation. Students found this was a great way to end a tiring day. Gainesville was filled with many entertaining night spots for dancing, eating or just talking. Club Lido, Stacks and the Metro were only a few of such places. Nature trails were available at Millhopper and Biven ' s Arm Nature Park. There was also a jogging trail at North Florida Regional Hospital. Students found a little bit of everything in " ole hogtown. " At least there was enough for everyone to find something they liked. 1) Actors perform " Amadeus " at the Hippodrome State Theatre. 2) The Hippodrome ' s financial problems forced massive fundraisers in order to save the theatre from closing down. 3) During most of the year, warm weather tempts students out to Lake Wauburg for some relaxation, sun, fun and some studying. 4) A staff member straightens up the twister ' playing mats for students to participate in the " largest twister game " ever. Outside Gainesville: Getting Away So what do you do when there is just " nothing to do in Gainesville? " The were endless, since Gainesville was located in the middle of a state packed with new and interesting things to do. Located just one and a half hours from town, either east or west, were beaches to enjoy. The Gator Outdoor Recreation Program planned trips for students to the Nantahala and Ocoee Rivers in North Carolina. In spring, they took students skiing to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Three hours to the south-east was Cape Canaveral, home of the Kennedy Space Center where the space shuttle took off. Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, Sea World, Cypress Gardens and other tourist attractions provided days of fun for many students. — Parveen Wagner 1) Space Shuttle Discovery lifts off from Pad 39A at 2:50 p.m. on its first dedicated Department of Defense mission.

Getting Onto Campus: It ' s More Fun With Scotty It was Monday morning, you woke up late and consequently got the spot in the far back corner of the student parking lot. You had this feeling deep down that this wasn ' t going to be one of your best days. Just as you were ready to give up and blow off the whole day, the Hub-Frat bus pulled up and you climbed aboard. After digging for correct change you saw the first bright spot of the day, Scotty Knight, a five-year veteran of the Hub-Frat route. After seeing Scotty ' s bright smile as he greeted you with a cheery " good morning " you felt the day might just work out. This was a daily experience for many of the students at CIF, said one student, " It was good to see at least one smiling face before first period. " The Hub-Frat bus traveled from the Commuter Lot to GAP, from the Hub to Frat Row which saved students from a long walk in the cold or rain. All this and Scotty ' s uplifting personality for just 10 cents! The bus ran on a twenty-minute cycle, offering only a short wait between trips. So you didn ' t have to be put off by a long line or large crowd on the bus because it would always be back soon. For a break in your day and an impressive ride to the commuter lot from busy areas on campus, students jumped on the Hub-Frat bus and said, ' hey ' to Scotty. 1) The commuter parking lot stays full all day. 2) Students wind up and down the aisles in hopes of finding a space. 3) Scotty gives riders a cheery smile. 1) P.

The library w as v next to the Hub and G.P.A., would be ready for occupancy late in the spring of 1986. Housed inside the new building would be areas for such programs as computer teaching labs and teaching research. There would also be a science library which would consolidate chemistry, physics, agriculture and engineering all under one roof. The building, built because of the need for more space, cost about 20 million dollars once completed. It was funded by the State of Florida Appropriate Funds of Engineering funded by the Special Student Fund. The new building would be the largest on campus, second only medical center. This building would add much esteem to the already high-ranked engineering as well as a new and modern facility for advancement in the engineering field. 1) The building finally began taking form in January. 2) The parking lot next to the hub was cleared to begin construction. Tuition second to the 1) K.

Rotberg Study Areas: As Diverse As The Individual While leading the Romantic movement with words of harmony and emo- tion, William Wordsworth said to leave the books behind and go to nature for wisdom. Well, students weren ' t exactly leaving the books behind, but they were going to nature. Snugged under a cozy tree or parked on their favorite bench, students dug into their school work and allowed the bookworm in them to roam free. Studying in the great outdoors seemed to become commonplace. found that fresh air was one of the ingredients needed to create new thought. Although nature seemed to be a preferred study area, it was far from the only place to hit the books. The library remained a convenient locale for studying. Although not as stimulating as the outdoors, it provided a much quieter atmosphere in which to concentrate. Study cubicles with lock and key could be sought should one wish to lock up their books. For many, staying awake was the part. Therefore, the bedroom was a comfortable place in which to attempt to acquire knowledge. Should a sudden desire to sleep envelop you, the bed was always near. Study habits varied widely. While many scholars enjoyed studying with frie nds, others sought solitude. For some students, two hours of studying was more than they could bare. Others thought there weren ' t enough days in the week. Then there were those who, by the means of some extraordinary could listen to music, watch TV and have dinner while studying. The motive was a common one — to maintain (or improve) that " darn " GPA. Sometimes the long hours of hard work paid off. Sometimes they didn ' t. But whatever the results, the cure for exhausted brain cells was usually the same; a room full of people, music and plenty of drinks. — Jackie Bueno 1 J. Rowland ' n P Wagner 1) Using a backpack as a pillow and the grass as a bed, this student catches up on some reading while she tunes in to music. 2) Concentration is a key element when a paper, just as it is when doing any school work.

The O ' Dome Meets The Needs Of Its Audience Since opening its doors for fall in 1980, the Stephen C. Center has held events ranging from basketball to gymnastic meets; swimming meets to an engineering fair; Lawrence Welk to Cyndi Lauper, and the ever popular tractor pull. Over 130,000 people had passed through the doors of the O ' Dome to use its many facilities. As many as 1,000 people could participate in eight activities The building contained two weight rooms, a 50-meter Olympic-sized pool, two practice courts, a gymnastic a dance studio, a fencing and karate room and the main arena which could be used for basketball, volleyball and track meets. But the most outstanding feature of the center was its mushroom-like appearance. The building ' s roof was made of teflon and fiberglass which was kept inflated by fans blowing through eight flumes to keep all of the 150,000 square foot-roof inflated. Even with all this wonderment, many students complained that the O ' Connell Center did not bring in the " big acts " . This year, all that changed. The new addition of VSL towers enabled the center ' s ceiling structure to hold the sound and light that was needed for big acts. Bringing in Cyndi Lauper and Eddie Murphy were examples of this new versatility. After this year, officials planned on bringing even larger entertainers to Fall ' 85 would bring Gymnastics and other such activities. Whether you were looking for entertainment or a means to physical fitness, the Stephen C. O ' Connell Center was the place to go. 1) The Olympic-size pool gives students and athletes a great work-out. 1) K. Browne 24 O ' Connell Center 2) K. Browne 3) K.

Browne O ' Connell Center 25 Hard Work, Some Play Create St rong Muscles Jamie enjoys biking. Rod doesn ' t; he likes swimming. Tom, on the other hand, would rather jog any day. Whether biking, swimming, or jogging, the campus was swarmed with students trying to tone muscles as they burned calories. Burning calories was what it was all about as students moved to the beat of a good instructor in the various aerobic and dance classes offered around campus. Weekly sessions in campus dorms motivated many to attend the classes. Nearby tennis, racquetball and volleyball courts helped those wishing to combine exercise with game playing. Courts were full morning to evening and available to anyone wishing to join in on the fun. Becoming more apparent around campus was a new game involving an old trick. Instead of kicking a rock, kids now began to kick a bag — a bean bag that is. Hacky Sack, the new craze sweeping the campus, was a must for anyone wanting something on which to release his frustrations. Hitting a sack with high swift kicks was an art few could master. A couple hours drive didn ' t stop others from hitting the beaches. With surfboards on car roofs, the weekends were reserved for fun in the sun. Students ' reasons for shaping up varied as much as the sports they engaged in. Athletes aimed to perfect their skills while others simply wanted to enjoy the benefits of a healthier, stronger body. One student found aerobic exercising to be an excellent way of adjusting to the change from high school to college. Because she was now spending more time studying then exercising, she wanted to do something about it. " In college my whole life slowed down so I have to do something to make up for the time I spend studying, " said Dolly Rairigh, IUF. " While everyone is gaining their freshman ten, I want to lose it " Action was what every activity was about. Eventually, one by one, muscles became stronger and tummies became toned. — Jackie Bueno 1) Located on the ground floor of J. Wayne Reitz Union, the bowling alley provides students with a nearby place to burn calories and hit the pins. 2) Shooting pool at J. Wayne Reitz Union is just one of the many activities students enjoy after a long day with the books. 2) D. Adams Keeping Fit 1) Tennis, just one of the many ways to both play and work, provides students with a good workout as it efficiently uses up energy. 2) One of the great American pastimes, football, is a favorite way for many students to stay in shape while enjoying the outdoors. 3) Long hours of hard work and heavy sweat on Norman Field leaves many students thirsty and many bottles empty. I) C. Anderson 1) An intramurals baseball player attempts to hit a homerun. 28 Keeping Fit Intramurals Provide Friendly Competition " Hit the books to hit the ball " was the state wide slogan designed by the Florida Department of Education to improve the academic ability among Florida ' s athletes. Many students were hitting both and plenty of runs. Intramural sports provided many with the opportunity to participate in some friendly competition. Although not as highly esteemed as intercollegiate athletics, intramural activities were a way of not only exercising, but meeting new people. intramural football enabled me to meet many others who had similar Robert Elliott, 1 UF, captain for a Fletcher Hall team, said. Leagues ranged from dorm to men ' s, or women ' s independent. Some of the other leagues were for fraternity little sisters, married students, sorority and fraternity members and engineering students. Those students who enjoyed the feel of a racquet could indulge in tennis, racquetball or table tennis. Bowling and golf provided competition for those who wanted less physical activity but still wanted to enjoy the benefits and excitement of exercising. The athlete who sought more vigorous activity could have engaged in football, basketball, and soccer. There were many more events which catered to the individual preference of students. More participation and an increase in publicity were the goals of intramural officials. " We ' re hoping to be able to get some of the games televised. We don ' t get that much exposure. Unfortunately, you don ' t read about intramural sports like you do other sports, " Stephen Rosenblac, director of publicity for the intramural office, said. However, Rosenblac was optimistic about the future of intramural sports. With a 50 percent increase in participation and an addition of 2000 games, he said he felt very good about the upward slide of the organization. — Jackie Bueno 1) C. Anderson 2) C. Kuperman 3) C.

Wagner Toothaches Cured Cheaply By Dental Health Students The Dental Health Clinic was an unknown yet important part of many students ' health needs. The clinic was run by the University and served as a class for the students who performed their learned skills on actual patients. Each semester, 80 dental students maintained the clinic. " An average of 300 patients were seen each day, half of them students, " said Dr. Lewis Leo, director of the There were 300 work stations in the clinic, which was on the first floor of Shands Dental Science Tower. Leo said all dental specialties were involved, " and if a student couldn ' t meet a patient ' s needs, a professor would. " The clinic was open from 9 am to 5 pm daily and any student could make an appointment. If a student had an emergency, Leo said it would be taken care of immediately. If a student just needed his teeth cleaned he would go in for a screening appointment and would then be assigned to a dental student. Because these were dental students working on patients and not private there was a reduced charge for all services. All work that the dental students performed on patients was reviewed by at least one faculty member, but usually two, Leo said. — Parveen Wagner 2) P.

The Islands was popular for dancing. The main attraction was a large dance floor and some of the hottest bands that came to town. Fraternity parties were also favored for dancing. Starting with rush week and during the year, at various parties both records and live bands kept everybody partying. The Purple Porpoise Oyster Pub was another favorite drinking establishment. Directly across the street from Murphree residence halls, Purple Porpoise had different drink specials every night of the week.

The UF cheerleaders on the bottom left side of the field started the familiar " Eat ' em up Gators " cheer as the opposing team entered the stadium. What was it? Yes, just another average University of Florida football game. At the end of each week during the fall semester, students, faculty, alumni and fans flocked to Florida Field clad in anything even resembling orange and blue. For many students, these Saturdays were something to look forward to and what their minds were on for most of the semester. Not only was it a time for friends and family to come together, but a time to let loose. Evidence of this was the emptied liquor bottles and streamers strewn on bleachers at game ' s end. It was a time to let frustrations out after a long week ' s studying; a time to show spirit for the alma mater. This spirit was shown in the orange- clad fans, the orange and blue shakers, company-sponsored hand fans, alligator replicas, painted faces and Gator buttons. They were fun-filled days to be remembered by all fans; especially this year, the year of the Gator — SEC champs! — Parveen Wagner 1) Continuing the tradition, Mr. " Two-Bits " gets the crowd on their feet with his well known cheer. 1) M.

Student actors, writers and directors put on the popular lampoon-style skits which have become a well known part of Gator Growl. Anyone could audition for the show and the creative director selected the better skits. " I looked for humor, " Joshua Weinstein, Creative Director for Gator Growl ' 84, said.

Cosby was also entertaining, unlike complaints about Bob Hope the year before. Cosby ' s warm humor was what got you. He talked about his children, his wife and her going through labor — things that everyone could relate to. Life ' s little idiosyncrasies that we all can laugh at.

Ronald Reagan, Walter Mondale, George Bush and Geraldine Ferraro all fell under the scrutiny of the law students. " Ms. Ferraro, are you really as old as you look? " asked the emcee. " At least I don ' t dye my hair like some people here today, " snapped Ferraro. " Well there you go again, " replied Reagan. " First you lied on your disclosure and now you ' re lying about my hair. " The students also delved into sexually suggestive humor, the NCAA probe of UF and the death penalty. President Marshall Criser and Governor Bob Graham — " Sparky Graham " to the students — didn ' t escape a few barbs. " Just when you thought it was over, another electrifying new offer from Governor Bob Graham, " said a radio announcer ' s voice. " Shocking, you bet; the new hit, ' Till Death Do Us Part ' , by Bloody Bob and the Hot Wires. These songs are hot, but an offer like this comes only once in a lifetime.

The Ball, with its long bumpy past, was now on smooth ground. Thousands of strangely costumed students attended, enjoying themselves while drinking some unknown witch ' s brew. The most popular costume seemed to be the ghostbusters uniform, but the familiar stock of witches and vampires were also well represented. Music was provided by The Ramones, an English rock band, and John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, the rock-n-roll group of " Eddie and the Cruisers " fame. Both groups were well accepted.

Hughes In response to the outpour of aid to famine-stricken Africa, Student Government set up their own fund raiser. On April 21, Comedian David Brenner appeared at the Center, raising almost $1,000 for United Support of Artists for Africa, a charity set up to alleviate famine in Ethiopia. Ethiopia was one of more than 20 countries scorched by drought in Africa. Pictures of the starving children jolted the conscious of America into action. " Children for Children " was set up by the New York public schools many of them in the poorest districts and raised over $150,000 to pay for a planeload of grain to go to Ethiopia. These 35 tons of grain would feed 3,000 people a month in a country where 300,000 had already died and nine million more faced starvation. " Save the Children " was set up in Ethiopia as a famine camp, trying to feed 9,000 children, six times a day. " U.S.A. for Africa " was the organization that caught the eyes of most Americans. Musical stars such as Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen, came together to record an album. The title cut was " We are the World. " All proceeds from the sale of the record went to helping alleviate hunger in Ethiopia. David appearance was but a small amount of the millions needed for hunger-stricken Ethiopia, but as Earl Ziebarth, student body president said, " Every little bit helps. " — Parveen Wagner At the end of spring semester, David Brenner gave a show at the O ' Connell Center where all proceeds were given to U.S.A. for Africa.

" Olympic Athletes 87 Florida ' s Folly After a grueling 21 month investigation, the NCAA handed Florida a three year pro bation, the stiffest sentence ever given to a university in the history of the NCAA. The probation banned Florida from post season playoffs, reduced the number of athletic scholar- ships and disallowed the Gators from participating in televised games. The probation was punishment for over 80 violations of NCAA conduct rules. As a result of the investigation several athletic personnel, including Head Coach Charley Pell, were removed from their positions. The beginning came in the winter of 1982. On November 26, a report in the Fort Lauderdale News and Sun Sentinel revealed that Assistant Coach Sonny McGraw offered a job to the sister of high school place kicker Pat Moons. Moons said he told the NCAA about the offer. Two weeks later, the NCAA informed Florida it had begun a preliminary inquiry into the university ' s recruiting practices. The investigation, fostered by evi- dence from several Florida newspapers, lasted 21 months and uncovered 107 possible violations committed by athletic officials, players and alumni. In the start of the investigation, no shattering revelations surfaced in the Florida case. Some NCAA rules had been broken, but the crimes did not appear serious enough to warrant strict punishment. Then, in the summer of 1984, former advisor Mike Brown told the press he was ordered by certain athletic officials to spy on the football practices of competing schools. His accusations were corroborated by former Assistant Coach Sonny McGraw and others. The reports were further verified by travel vouchers and records. This new evidence forced the NCAA to dig deeper into the Florida case and look for other possible infra ctions. Ultimately, 107 violations were uncovered. The charges brought against the university ranged from minor infractions to blockbusters. Several of the 107 violations involved allegations against boosters and athletic personnel who reportedly paid exorbitant prices for players complimentary tickets. Other charges include: 1) repeatedly providing free transportation and meals to prospective student athletes, 2) recruiting players before their senior year in high school and visiting them more than three times before they signed a letter of intent, 3) providing free room and board for non- scholarship or walk-on athletes, 4) supplying recruits with clothes, 5) paying students tuition for summer semesters, 6) negotiating a prospective students car loan, 7) providing employment for prospective student athletes, 8) employing extra off campus recruits, 9) providing hotel lodging the night before a student signs a letter of intent, 10) conducting practices in the winter and summer that were illegal because they involved practicing formations, 11) giving prospective students financial compensation at Gator football camp, and more. Those named in the charges included staff members, academic advisors, the equipment manager, strength coaches, alumni and distinguished boosters. Six staff members — Head Coach Charley Pell, defensive coordinator Joe Kines, strength coach Rich Tuten, special terms coach Dwight Adams, offensive teams coach Phil Maggio, receiver coach Mike Heimerdinger and equipment manager Bud Hernandez — still held their jobs when the charges were handed down to Florida on September 11, 1984. On September 12, 1984, President Marshall Criser released the charges to the media along with 1,700 pages the procedures surrounding the By releasing the information, Criser averted a possible lawsuit instigated by the Independent Florida Alligator, the Miami Herald and the St. Petersburg Times. The papers demanded the release of the documents in order for Florida to comply with the state of Florida ' s Public Records Law. The documents revealed that former President Robert Marston and Head Coach Charley Pell knew about the NCAA violations since 1978. Previously, they denied such knowledge. The turmoil following the release of the charges was enormous. Within a week of the announcement Head Coach Charley Pell was removed from his coaching position and President Criser offered to forfeit four football games that were illegally spied on. They were Florida vs. the of Mississippi (1980), Louisville (1980), Auburn (1980) and Florida State (1981). In an attempt to right as many wrongs as he could, and possibly get a lighter sentence from the NCAA, Criser directed the university to take whatever steps necessary in disciplining those student athletes 1) K. Rotberg 1) President Marshall Criser congratulates newly appointed Head Coach Galen Hall on Florida ' s first-ever SEC football title. 88 NCAA I) K. Rotberg 1) Most Florida students felt that Florida did not violate more NCAA rules than any other school. They felt that Florida just got caught. who were implicated in the violations. After the charges were released and 22 of the original 107 violations were dropped due to insufficient evidence. Once the charges were dropped, the NCAA met with Coach Pell, President Criser and others to discuss the remaining 85 violations. While the two sides met, Florida newspapers were still digging for a story. In their own investigation they uncovered several other wrongdoings in the university system which went by the NCAA. These included free legal help for former defensive Larry Douglas after he was accused of sexually attacking a girl in his dorm room; paying for family members of Florida players while the visited Gainesville; offering $700 to place kicker Declan O ' Donohue so that he could visit his native Ireland. Due to the atmosphere surrounding the NCAA investigation, however, the NCAA did not follow up on the new leads. After the Florida-NCAA hearings a three year probation was handed down to the university. The scope of the three year probation included no live television during the length of the probation, no post season play and a reduction on the number of scholarships over the next two years. Other conditions Florida was required to fulfill by the NCAA included: 1) firing assistant coaches Joe Kines and Dwight Adams. Both were cited for, among other things, lying about their involvement in the infractions, 2) revamping the athletic department, making the head football coach directly responsible to the athletic director, 3) adopting a more strict complimentary ticket policy, 4) tightening procedures regarding athletic department travel vouchers, 5) putting Yon Hall, the athletic dormitory under control of the business office instead of the Gator coaches, 6) clearly defining the roles of athletic director and faculty athletic representatives, and 7) disassociation of Gator athletics from several independent parties who were named in the violations. Other Gator supporters like Bull Gator and Yankees owner George Steinbrenner were asked to disassociate themselves from UF athletics voluntarily by the NCAA. If all these measures are completed to the satisfaction of the NCAA, Florida might be able to drop its final year of probation. If these conditions are not met, however, Florida ' s third year of probation stands to make it the stiffest sentence ever to be handed down to a university by the NCAA. After the NCAA investigation was completed the SEC stepped in to decide if it, too, should impose its own punishment on the Gators. Part of the pending punishment by the SEC would be to take away the conference title the Gators won on the field after a successful romp over Kentucky. But, in early April, the SEC decided not to punish the Gators beyond the NCAA penalty and Florida was allowed to keep the SEC title officially. The reduction of athletic scholarships were the cause of many peoples concern for both academic and recruiting reasons. Athletic perso nnel and educators feel the reduction of scholarships will reduce the quality of the team and prohibit possible players from attending college. All totaled, the investigation cost the university and the athletic association over two million dollars. Whether these and other repercussions will strongly affect the university is up for debate. — Tina Gonsalves NCAA 89 Bell: SEC Rookie-of-the-Year - K. Rotberg Some call it luck. Others say it ' s being at the right place at the right time, Kerwin Bell calls it " a miracle. " " Last year it didn ' t seem like it was possible. I was down on the depth chart and I didn ' t get many chances. Now I ' m starting at the quarterback position, " said Bell. Kerwin Bell started his football career at Florida as a redshirt freshman walk-on. Although Bell was a highly touted high school quarterback, he didn ' t get much action from college football scouts. " I get enough exposure in high school. Mayo ' s a little town, 900 people, not too many scouts come our way, " said Bell. Mayo may not be a haven for future college athletes, but now all 900 Mayoans bleed orange and blue. As the locals at Mayo ' s Exxon put it, " Not too many little towns can boast a major college quarterback. If you live around here, you ' d better be a Gator. " The sleepy town of Mayo got their claim to fame through a series of events prior to the 1984 football season. Former UF quarterback Wayne Peace completed his fourth year of eligibility, leaving the Gator quarterback position wide open. The following season the Florida coaching staff chose eight players — Dale Dorminey, Roger Sibbald, Brian Massingill, Clifton Reynolds, Donnie Whiting, Rodney Brewer, Darryl Crudup and Kerwin Bell — to compete for the quarterback spot. As pre-season practice came and went, so too went Sibbald, Crudup, Reynolds and Whiting. With only days before the season opener against Miami, senior Dale Dorminey was announced as the Florida ' s number one quarterback. Dorminey was followed by Brewer, Bell and Massingill on the depth chart. As third-string quarterback, Bell did not expect much action, but a week before the Miami game, the doors flew open for him. Bell was moved up from the number three to the number two quarterback position, pushing Rodney Brewer down to third- string. Bell was second-string quarterback for only days when, quite unexpectedly, he was moved to replace Dale Dorminey. " It was four days before the Miami game, " said Bell. " We were out for and on the last play Dale went into the endzone. One player pushed another and he fell on Dale. No one thought that Dale was hurt " I can remember hearing something rip when I hit the ground. I knew I was hurt, but I thought it was something minor, " said Dorminey. " The night of Dales ' accident I got a call from the coach telling me I was going to quarterback in the Miami game. I was kinda scared, " said Bell. Bell was only scheduled to play on the first team until Dorminey had a chance to recuperate. But, as the Miami game drew closer, it became apparent that Dorminey would be out for the season. Being thrown into the limelight was not difficult for Bell. " I don ' t get rattled by much. But, before the Miami game I really had to prepare myself. I didn ' t prepare like I would have, had I been on the first team the whole time, " said Bell. Although Florida ultimately lost to Miami, Bell proved himself to be a quarterback worthy of the Gators. " I knew the team and the coaches in me. Even when I made mistakes, they didn ' t give up hope, " said Bell. Bell continued to play well for Florida, but there were times when Bell, nicknamed the " Throwin ' Mayoan " by his teammates, blundered. " I had a slump in the Mississippi game. I felt pressured and I couldn ' t play my best, " said Bell. By coincidence, Bell ' s slump occurred at the same time as the NCAA was swinging into full force and Head Coach Charley Pell was forced to resign from his position. " But my slump didn ' t have anything to do with the NCAA. The team isn ' t really bothered by the NCAA, our minds are on doing the best we can on the field. I ' m sorry to see Pell go, but Galen Hall is a nice guy. The whole team likes and respects him, " said Bell. Bell went on to finish Florida ' s unprecedented SEC season by being ranked the number two quarterback in the nation and being named the Southeastern Conference " Rookie-of-the-Year.

Vance sported a hairdo that was cut into a tail with the sides shaved into rows. " My haircut is an expression of my desire to be Vance said. " I do not want to be just another face in the crowd. " Her relatively short height for a volleyball player, five feet and eight inches, was also a topic of discussion among fans. " I ' ve never considered myself as being short. Sure I ' ve looked over the net and have seen girls who were towering over me, but I never once got intimidated by them, " Vance said. — Lyra Vance Freshman Dunks Captivate Fans - The season brought many accomplishments to the Gator basketball squad. Not only did the team win games, but, finally, it won the support of Gator fans. The word " basketball " was rarely spoken by Gator fans and going to an actual game was unheard of. But, thanks to the efforts of coach Norm Sloan and a spectacular basketball team, people everywhere realized there was more to Florida than just football. Fans at home games averaged 8,000 in 1984 and the Florida vs. Florida State match-up saw a record crowd of over 13,000 fans, the largest amount of ever to watch a collegiate basketball game in the state of Florida. The growing support for basketball was encouraging to the players, trainers and coaches and they, in return, the fans with an exciting year in sports. The year ' s regular season was like a rollercoaster ride, exciting, scary, but well worth the trip. The Gators started the season with a seven game winning streak before entering SEC competition. On the road, the Gators captured big wins over tough competitions Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Kentucky. This was the first time the Gators had been able to beat all three teams away from home. After beating Ole ' Miss by nearly 20 points at the O ' Dome, Florida found on top of SEC standings where they stood for most of the season. Much of the Gators success is attributable to strong backcourt players like center Eugene McDowell and forwards Randall Leath, Francisco Leon and Joe Lawrence. On the perimeter were sharp shooters Vernon Maxwell, Daryl Greshan and Andrew Moten. With confidence in the team steadily increasing, a strong 84-85 season to build on and bright recruiting chants of SEC may someday become murmurs of NCAA. — Donna Bartee and Tina 1) Vernon Maxwell, Mr. Basketball in the state of Florida as a high schooler, shows off his McDowell-like form. 2) Andrew Moten came into the 1985 season as the SEC Freshman-of-the-year. 3) Center Eugene McDowell, was nicknamed the " Dunking Machine " honoring his spectacular form. 1) K.

Although McDowell knew his home life was important, he never figured it would help him with his basketball career. Growing up in a big family taught me how to cooperate. My family has supported me and that ' s helped me improve my game, " McDowell said. As McDowell ' s game improved, the Florida basketball team also gained momentum. Both McDowell and the team had SEC on their minds. The team has really improved since I ' ve been here, we have learned how to win. We had the talent to win the SEC, we only needed to play consistently. Winning the SEC would be the greatest moment in my basketball career. " — Eugene McDowell Senior From SEC To NIT After the Gator basketball team won their first nine consecutive games, basketball enthusiasts everywhere thought the Gators were the number one choice to an SEC title. They were wrong. Despite a strong opening, the Gators ended the season with a respectable, but unspectacular, 18-11 overall record. In the SEC Championships at Birmingham, Alabama, the Gators again had a stroke of beginners luck squeaking by 58-55. Their stay in Birmingham was brief, however, as they suffered a one point loss to Auburn 43-42. This loss eliminated the Gators from the conference. Along with being eliminated from the SEC tournament, the Gators were later snubbed by the NCAA tourney selection committee who took five other SEC teams including Kentucky and the newly crowned SEC Champs, Auburn. Instead, Florida had to settle for a National Tournament (NIT) bid, pushing their SEC dreams, once again, to the wayside. — Tina Gonsalves 1) First row: Ronnie Montgomery, Ray Collier, Danny Sheldon, Rollie Castineyra, Darryl Gresham, Vernon Maxwell, Andrew Moten.

" I accepted Coach Yow ' s decision to use me only when my talents were needed. I respect her ability to judge a person ' s strengths and weaknesses, " Hindes said. Despite decreased playing time, Hindes maintained a positive attitude about her new position on the squad. " I went to practice everyday; I ' m still on the team. If other people I know are better than me, I can accept not starting, " she said. " I know I ' m still a part of the team and nobody can take that away from me. " — Hollis Hindes Senior 1) R. Telford Newcomers Add Notoriety - Although the gymnastics team was extremely young in chronological years, it was the " oldest " team Coach Ernestine Weaver has put together since she came to Florida in 1979. In gymnastics, age was relative in terms of competitive experience. An 18- year-old with several international meets behind her was more mature than a 21-year-old with limited experience. This being the case, Coach Weaver ' s four new freshmen recruits were really her " oldest " athletes. Gymnast Anita Botnen topped the list of Florida ' s famous freshmen. Botnen, a native of Vancouver, British Columbia, was a top finisher at the 1984 Canadian Olympic Trials and later earned a spot on the Canadian Olympic Team. Other newcomers included Gina Stallone, Michelle Goodwin and Tammy Smith. All three gymnasts were members of the All USA National Gymnastics team. As a group, these freshmen composed one of the finest incoming classes in the history of women ' s collegiate gymnastics. Fresh talent was not the only reason the Lady Gators were favorites around the country. Six nationally known gymnasts returned from last season ' s fifth place NCAA team. Heading the list of returnees were two-time All-American Elfi Schlegal and NCAA floor exercise champion Maria Anz. Record holding vaulter Lana Marty, SEC beam titlist Kim Hillner and seniors Denise Lackey Roberts and Kelly McCoy rounded out the team. With Lana Marty on vault, Maria Anz on floor and a strong line-up of all- around freshman, the season was one of the best in Florida gymnastics history. — Tina Gonsalves 1) The Lady Gator gymnastics team was ranked second in the nation in preseason polls. 2) Junior Maria Anz is affectionately known as the queen of collegiate floor exercise. 3) Tammy Smith is one of Florida ' s famous freshman recruits.

But junior Elfi Schlegel did not let the new talent push her to the wayside. Instead, she confronted the challenge and decided to better her routines. " The other girls are fresh off the international scene so you know they ' re good. It pushes everyone else to have them here. We need those kids to get a better team, " said Schlegel. Being replaced by someone younger is not new to Schlegel. Despite having been Canada ' s top gymnast for more than six years, Canada decided to replace her with a younger gymnast for the ' 84 Olympics. Schlegel was named as an alternate.

Wayte produced 74 individual points at the national collegiate to earn the women ' s High Point Award. As a team, the Lady Gators amassed 39 All-American titles.

Fisher posted an important win against SEC rival Kentucky, improving Florida ' s standing record. Also, pitching were Seniors David Lee, the 1984 number-one bullpen performer and Stan Fascher. The Gator outfield was solid, showing defensive as well as offensive strength. Scott Ruskin led the club in the offensive categories, including batting average, RBI ' s and home runs. Junior Scott Lusader was the Gator lead off man and was also utilized as a designated hitter. Good recruits brought consistency to the infield. Junior, Palm Beach College transfer, Tim Touma headed the list with his skills at second base and short stop, along with junior Chris Lombardozzi. Scott Clemo, a high draft pick of the L.A. Dodgers, added depth at third base and Junior Rich Arena, a walk-on, turned-scholarship player, was a solid back-up.

The bulk of the team has had three years or less of collegiate play, but these players have had enough to create a strong all-around team. Although the team lost three doubles players due to graduation, the sophomore combination of Taylor and Richard Holt, along with doubles competitors Doug Dace, Rob Cartwright, Eddie Herrmann and Kevin Campbell, helped make up for the loss. The biggest match of the season was the upset over the ninth ranked Razorbacks in the Invitational Tour at Corpus Christie, Texas. The win proved the team could defeat top ranked teams and helped the team get closer to their dream of becoming a national powerhouse.

It was a great feeling. " Taylor is no foreigner to success. As a prep player he was ranked third in the state and was part of the top doubles team.

According to Brandi, the program was well established when he arrived, but he changed a few things to fit his system. These changes included working with each athlete on an individual basis and hiring a sports psychologist to work with the team. Brandi also put more emphasis on conditioning and weightlifting than his predecessor Steve Beeland. Heading into the season, Florida was ranked ninth in the nation in the Intercollegiate Tennis Coach Association ' s pre-season polls. Florida entered the season with three returning All-SEC players, All-American and 1984 Olympian Jill Hetherington, doubles title holder Jan Martin and Tammy Whittington.

Coach Brandi Adds Pro ' s Touch Andy Brandi, 33, the new women ' s tennis coach, said he came across the coaching job at Florida through luck. " I had been coaching professional players for five years and doing a lot of traveling with them without my wife and son. I was tired of traveling and felt cheated out of family life. " One day last year (1984), I ran into a University of Florida alumni and long-time friend and happened to ask her if she knew of any college or university that needed a tennis coach. She told me, ' I know the perfect place. Florida needs one. ' So I came here to see the facilities and got the job. I started in September, 1984 and I really like it here, " Brandi said with a smile.

Besides coaching professional women, he has coached juniors (18 and under), who have won national titles, people at tennis clubs and one professional man, who ended up 29 in the world. Brandi, whose older brother is a tennis player, has been playing tennis since he was eight. " My family and other families we know in Puerto Rico all belonged to a tennis club there. When I was very young, my father and brother would go play at the club and take me with them. Therefore, I was exposed to tennis through them at a young age, " Brandi said. He enjoys tennis because it is an individual sport and performance doesn ' t depend on other people, he said. For now, he is happy being a coach, but he plans on using his marketing degree in the future perhaps in marketing for sports.

" The fraternity stands for the ideals represented by the personality of Robert E. Lee, not for his beliefs as a fighter. The rebel flag has nothing to do with the beliefs.

Rotberg 250 Zeta Beta Tau Team Work Makes Homecoming Special Perhaps one of the most common questions asked by a rushee to the Greek system was " Who do you do Homecoming It was a simple question reflecting the importance and excitement Greeks associated with Homecoming. Fraternities and sororities began preparation for the fall celebration months in advance. Most houses had a Homecoming chairman or committee that was responsible for planning the festivities for their organization. In 1984, each fraternity invited a sorority to participate in Homecoming with them, and in 1985, the women will do the asking. At that time of the semester it was no surprise for men in coats and ties to serenade their sorority at 3 a.m. Working as a team each fraternity and its invited sorority decided on an idea for their float or house decoration, designed T- shirts, planned block seating for Gator Growl and concocted an agenda of parties ranging from barbeques to hot tub celebrations. Once past the planning stage, Greeks got serious as they built floats and lawn decorations that were displayed and judged on the day of the parade. Working until minutes before sunlight, Greeks helped transform Gainesville into a wonderland of tissue paper and chicken wire. Gator Growl followed, as did parties on Fraternity Row. On Saturday, fraternities and sororities joined other Gator fans at Florida Field to witness the Gator football triumph. An d later? Oh yes, party — Greek style! — Paula Bogosian 1) Alpha Xi Delta sisters won third place in the Gator Growl skit competition with their Bob Busters skit. 2) The Pike house located on West University Avenue had first rate seats for the Homecoming parade which passes directly by the fraternity. 3) Float building is usually an all night long endeavor. 4) Alpha Epsilon Pi brothers prepare for another long night of skit rehearsal at Florida Field. 2) B.

Adams Greeks 253 Individuals who joined the Greek System became pledges and initiated members for a variety of reasons. When asked about their Greek affiliation sorority sisters and fraternity brothers responded enthusiastically about their houses, the friends they had made, and the experiences they had shared as Greeks. What do you feel you have gained from being a member of the Greek System? " I have learned to work together with friends toward a common cause. " Bruce Grobow, 4BA " I have become involved in campus and community activities, scholastic and social activities. " Tracey Weiss, 4ED " Sorority life has given me friends and a sense of Betty Avgherino, 4LS " I have learned how I, just one person, can make a serious contribution to UF, the community and the world. " Melissa Jest, 4JM L. Murphy D. Anderson Greeks Stress Togetherness 254 Brotherhood And Sisterhood What do you enjoy most about your sorority? " I value most the friendships I have J.

" Colleen Mason, 4JM " The people I meet through the sorority have been the most enjoyable part of my membership. " Laura Mobitia, 4AC L. Murphy C. Kuperman What made you decide to become involved in the Greek System? " I wanted to become involved in something at the university — coming from a very small high school, I felt I needed a place to belong. Sorority life was that place. " Jane Johnson, 3JM " Greek life offered new ideas and so I pledged my Junior year. " Tony Perez, 3BA " The possibilities that arose from the gathering of 100 socially, academically, and success oriented men. " John McHale, 3JM L. Murphy L. Murphy Brotherhood And Sisterhood 255 1) K. Rotberg The year ' s biggest event for the Greek system as a whole was Greek Week. Fraternities and sororities competed in the week-long contest which gave Greeks a chance to socialize with other houses and at the same time raise money for the chosen philanthropy, The American Heart Association. Various competitions and social events were held throughout the week of 26 through March 2. The events kicked off with a blood drive and then Talent Night where Greek houses performed skits correlating with a Broadway theme. A Greek Happy Hour on Fraternity Row was next on the agenda and runners from the same day run-a-thon were conveniently able to finish their race in time for a beer. Greek Feast, a huge picnic supper was held at Norman Field with pie eating contests and a dunking booth for entertainment. The week continued with the Super Dance dance-a-thon and Greek Bash, an enormous party at the Gainesville Women ' s Center. The Soap Box Derby Race and Field Day completed the week. Field Day gave Greeks a chance to participate in 3) K. Rotberg 2) K. Rotberg Greek Week such events as the tug-of-war, inner tube race and the crazy bat race.

Greeks Make Headlines: Greek Week ' 85 Greek Week 257 Each spring, all students, whether freshman or juniors, must decide where they want to live during the next year. With all the different places students call their ' home ' for a school year, what makes them choose to live where they do? Different areas of Gainesville cater to the special needs and interests of its residents. Near campus, older apartments, with fewer frills, provided students easy access to classes and in some cases instant roommates, while apartments like Regency Oaks offered luxurious club houses and tennis courts. Campus residents had their choice of living in single, double, or apartment style rooms. Many campus dwellers made their decision on where to live based on to classes and the activities available at their halls. Tolbert Area residents could participate in Mud Fest and many Broward-Rawlings residents liked the easy access to Broward Beach. No matter where students decided to set down their roots, they discovered there were disadvantages as well as advantages, but they learned to cope with sometimes leaky faucets, flooded living rooms and noisy floor mates. For many students, moving away from home and living on their own was their first taste of college life. — Nicole J. Hughes A major part of college living for students is grocery shopping. College Living 259 Getting up at 6:30 a.m. for first hour might have been difficult to begin with, but it was more frustrating to when they shared a bathroom with a roommate. Learning to live with someone else or taking care of themselves made adjusting to college living even more difficult for some students. Even deciding to live with a best friend did not make living arrangements easier for some. Vicky Jones, 2UF, of Sledd Hall commented that living with good friends did not always work out because, although you were friends, you had not lived with that person day and night before you moved in together. Seeing someone 24 hours a day could change your relationship. Kevin Doherty, 3UF, of Beaty Towers said, " Living with an old friend can be an advantage because you already know the person. Instead of spending time getting to know your roommate, you can develop the friendship. " Some who lived in residence halls did not even know their roommate ' s name they arrived. Although it took some time to get to know the " stranger " they were assigned to live with, some of these strangers became lifelong friends. Most of all students had to adjust to doing everything for themselves. Rob Bradley, 2UF, of Beaty said, " Mom wasn ' t there to cook for me when I was hungry. " 1) Living in a residence hall students must adjust to using a public bathroom. 2) College life does not leave students much time to keep their rooms neat. 3) Living with someone 24 hours a day, roommates develop lasting friendships. 3) J. Rowland 260 Adjusting to College Life Clothes strewn across their rooms and dirty dishes piled to the ceiling reflected the fact that many students found they had to clean up for themselves. Getting used to going to classes was not the only adjustment students had to make. Through going to college, they learned to take care of themselves and live with friends and strangers. — Nicole Hughes 1) Being on their own, students learn which things get washed in hot and which get washed in cold. 11 R Colon 3) C. Kuperman 2) People ' s menus change from Mom ' s home to Swanson ' s TV dinners, after moving away from home. 3) Close quarters of residence halls force roommates to develop similar study habits. 4) Jenny Hebert, 3LS, and Karen Williamson, 4ED, find making pizza more fun than having it delivered. 5) Adjusting to College Life 261 Some students found that living within the structured environment of a residence hall provided them with better opportunities to meet neighbors and make lasting friendships. Many residents found that the close proximity to classes was an advantageous aspect of campus living. Residence halls also provided students with many conveniences such as laundry facilities. Even with these accommoations, some students did not like living on campus. They found that the rooms were too small and that the halls were too noisy. Campus residents had more opportunities to meet neighbors than students who lived in apartments, Their area government and councils planned social events from aerobic workouts to weekend bashes. Residents of halls without air conditioning left their doors open, which helped them to become good friends rather than just people who lived on the same floor, Students felt one of the best advantages of campus living was that the residence halls were within walking distance of classes. Many campus students ' schedules allowed free time between classes for them to return home for a break. Karen Williamson, a four year resident of Beaty Towers said, " The only good thing about living on campus is that you can come home between classes and take a nap. " In contrast to apartment living in which a student had to make monthly rental payments, campus residents were required to pay their rent in one lump sum. This payment included utilities, services and general maintenance. A student could even have his housing bill deferred until his financial aid arrived. Residence halls also provided occupants with s tudy areas, laundry facilities and recreation rooms. Beaty, Broward and Graham Halls were equipped with libraries that stocked current novels as well as encyclopedias and reference materials. Beaty Towers was the only area to have its own gift shop. Some residents did not like living on campus. Many complained that the rooms were too small and that they did not have enough privacy, To complicate matters, residents often had to share a room with a stranger. Most campus residents had to share bathrooms with everyone else on their floor. Only Beaty Towers ' residents had the luxury of a private bath and kitchen. Even though many floors had established quiet hours for the benefit of those who wanted to study, many found the residence hails to be too loud. According to personal preference those who felt the advantages of campus living outweighed the disadvantages stayed while those who felt differently moved off campus. Nicole J. Hughes Convenience s Main Advantage 1) Each residence hail provides laundry facilities at a cheaper price and closer proximity than most laundromats. 2) Mike Knoebel doesn ' t find it difficult to adjust to his small residence hall room. 3) Beaty Towers resident Kathy O ' Connor washes dishes in her suite kitchen. 262 Advantages Disadvantages Of On-Campus Living 1) Having a mail room in the area commons is an advantage to living on campus. 2) A Murphree area resident takes a break from studying by playing pool in the recreation room. 3) Noise, which distracts from studying, is one complaint students have about living in a residence hall. Advantages Disadvantages Of On Campus Living 263 After attending hours of classes, studying or working, it was time for students to get away from their responsibilities and have fun. Since the weather in Gainesville was fairly warm during the year, many students turned to athletics to get away from it all. Not only was it a source of enjoyment, but also a great way to stay in shape. Sophomore Louise Filkins explained, " I jog because it is good exercise and also it helps me to escape from my everyday worries. " On a typical afternoon the campus tennis courts were filled with players, lawns outside residence halls and fraternity houses became the backdrops of many touch football games and basketball hoops were the center of attention in fast-paced basketball games. Moving indoors, there was bowling at the Union, ping-pong inside the residence hall areas and swimming and weightlifting at the O ' Connell Center. Athletics was not the only form of recreation found on campus. Le isure courses were offered to students, ranging from typing to bartending. These courses were strictly for entertainment and no school credit was given for taking them. Going to college involv ed a lot more than just going to classes and studying. There was some form of recreation for just about everyone to participate. — Colleen Mueller 1) The tennis courts across from Beaty Towers are a popular spot for a few sets of tennis after class. 2) Video games at the Space ' n ' Gator provide passive recreation and hours of enjoyment. 3) Car enthusiasts get the opportunity to show their expertise every other weekend at the commuter parking lot behind Hume Hall. 3) C. Kuperman 264 Recreation 1) Frisbee players take the chance to practice their game on most weekends when the weather is nice. 2) After hours of study, these Jennings Hall residents unwind with a game of indoor football. 3) Lacing up to hit the streets, these students enjoy roller skating on weekends. 1) C. Kuperman 2) C. Kuperman 3) C. Kuperman Recreation 265 The quest to build a home away from home became a necessary task for all students. Filling an empty room with posters and other personal materials in order to make it cozy could be quite time consuming and expensive. Each individual personality and taste entered into the revitalizing of a dorm room. Whether the student to make it a copy of his childhood room or a wild and exotic interpretation of his new found freedom, each resident his distinctiveness in his choice of Two Trusler Hall residents filled their walls and ceiling with concert while on the other side of campus, two Jennings Hall residents decorated their room in a lip motif. Many used interior design as a mode of self-expression. Three Hume Hall residents in a triple built a loft, giving themselves more room for other comforts. Two Rawlings Hall residents added carpet and a couch to their room to give it a touch of elegance. Any way a resident chose to decorate brought out the individual ' s distinct qualities. 1) These Murphree residents made their own paradise with the use of a couple cans of paint and posters. 2) Two students show how comfortable and roomy a loft can make their room. They have space for all the essentials and even a chair and refrigerator. 2) C. Anderson 266 Room Types With eleven resident areas on campus, 6,000 students of all classes were provided with a place to live. Some residents spent many hours and a lot of money to create a place to call home. For other residents all that was needed was a couple cans of paint. Some students transformed four walls into a paradise, by putting a little ingenuity into the task of redecorating. — Lisa Simon 3) J. Hixenbaugh 1) The residents in this Jennings Hall room transformed it into a home away from home, with a little help from such items as paintings, plants and stereos. 2) Without much room to play, a Murphree Hall improvises window space for shelf and space. 3) Two Beaty Towers residents use posters of their favorite groups to fill their walls. 4) Some students decorate their room in some of the more familiar objects of college life. 5) Room Types 267 Living in a greek house is quite a unique experience. " I like living in the Chi Phi house because you do not have a Resident looking over you, and you do not have the problem of being isolated like in an said John Cacciatore, a senior in Electrical Engineering. The greek houses allowed people to be around friends and people who share a common interest. Most of the fun in the greek house is because you are around people you like, " said May Vasileva, a junior in journalism. Although living in a greek house allowed one to be around friends, the greeks are quite well known for socializing. Greek houses constantly had socials. " I like going to the greek socials because it gives me a chance to meet new people, " said sophomore Scott Zimmett. Greek houses were basically a swarm of activity. There was always something going on. Everybody who lived in the house was involved in activities such as fundraising, parties and organizing of Rush Week. The greek houses had a certain organization that they supported. 1) When living in a greek house you learn to become accustomed to the constant playing of music. 2) One of the most popular ways of raising funds for a greek house ' s philanthropy is to have a party. 3) After working hard on cutting the lawn and other yardwork the brothers kick back and catch some sun. 3) c Kuperman 268 Life in a Greek House Most houses supplied breakfast, lunch and dinner for the brothers and sisters. Dinner was especially important because it was a time for everyone to sit and talk after a busy day of school. " I really enjoy dinner because you get to see all the brothers or the frat, " said freshmen Drew Olsen. Living in a greek house during 1984 was a little different than in past years because of the dry rush. It was the first time the fraternities enforced dry rush. " I think it is a good idea because the brothers get to see what the pledges are really like and only the serious rushees participate in Rush Week, " said freshmen Kappa Alpha Bill Minter. With dry rush, the recruiting rushees, and activities varied from pizza nights to movie nights. — Gregory A. Scharnagl 2) K. Rotberg 1) Along with a room in the greek house, the greeks also get to use the other facilities like the fireplace in the house. 2) No matter what is happening in a greek house one could always find a friend to sit down and talk to. 3) A portion of the time one spends living in a greek house is spent cleaning the house. Once a week the greek house gets a thorough cleaning. 3) K. Rotberg Life in a Greek House 269 3) R.

Specialized Halls 271 Many different types of housing were offered to accommodate the varying needs and interests of its students. In addition to the single, double and triple coed halls, there were also Beaty Towers apartments, honor halls, an all female hall, co ops and graduate student residences. Yulee Hall and East Hall provided housing for students with high grade point averages. Students living in Yulee Hall had to be at least 21 years of age or have a sophomore or higher standing, with a minimum 3.0 grade point average. East Hall residents were qualifying freshman and higher students who participated in accelerated academic programs. Mallory Hall was the only women ' s hall on campus. Also, many architecture students lived in Mallory Hall because of its close proximity to their studios. The major disadvantage to life in a women ' s hall was the lack of men. One resident, however, explained, The advantages outweighed the disadvantages because I have formed many close friendships without the guys around. " The co ops were located in North, Reid and Buckman Halls. The purpose of this type of housing was to help students save money while attending school. Co ops were managed by their residents and everyone worked to achieve the upkeep of the residence area. Graduate students could choose to live in Schutt Village. This apartment style of living had many advantages. The atmosphere was quiet, since it catered specifically to graduate students and once someone became a permanent resident, he could stay in the same apartment until graduation. With these varying types of housing on campus, just about specific needs and interests could be met. — Colleen Mueller Housing For Special People Residence hall area councils provided activities and services. They consisted of elected and voluntary members who served on activity committees as well as helped out during the activities. Activities ranged from barbeques to free movies to dances. These social events gave residents a chance to get to know the people with whom they were living. also had a chance to socialize if they were not involved in a fraternity or other type of extracurricular organization. The area governments sold activity cards, which gave students discounted rates or free admission to social functions. Students without cards were not left out, though. They could attend events for a small fee. The councils used the revenue from activity card sales and entrance fees to finance activities they provided. Area councils also offered other services to residents. Students could cash checks, buy stamps and check out game equipment or housewares, which students may not have owned such as blenders and boards. Area governments provided students with invaluable services. By organizing residents had the opportunity to socialize with neighbors and make new friends. — Nicole J.

Hughes Area Councils 273 Do There were many things people remembered about living in the residence halls on campus, like friends, the parties, the community bathrooms, and the resident assistants (RA). The RAs? Well, not everyone had fond memories of their RAs, but they played an important role in making sure everything ran smoothly on their floor of the residence hall as well as helping students adjust to college life. At first, it seemed that the only job the RA had was enforcing the regulations of the Division of Housing and writing up who did not abide by them. However, the RAs had a much larger scope of re- sponsibility. " Some responsibilities that I have are counseling students, planning social and developmental programs, students, being on-call for security, updating bulletin boards, taking care of and keeping an eye on everyone, " said John Kerns of Beaty West. An important part of John Kerns of Beaty West. 1) Keeping hall bulletin boards up to date is part of the programming activities. 2) RA Jay McWhirter helps a fellow student with his french homework. 3) Floor meetings always draw a large crowd. 3) C. Kuperman 274 Resident Assistants the programming which involved planning and coordinating events for the floor and working with other RAs on larger projects. Each RA was required to have a certain amount of programming time. " I think the programming is one of the most underestimated jobs of the RAs, " said Linda Magee of Broward. Some familiar programs that were planned in the Broward Hall area were Alcohol Awareness, movies at the Rathskeller and the Orange and Brew, Pursuit contests, Ice Cream Socials and Pancake Breakfasts. " The class was not especially difficult, but it made me aware of a lot of the Division of Housing policies, " said Holly Terio of Beaty East. It also showed the RAs how to run a fire drill, gave them information on counseling and informed them on how to spot symptoms of a possible suicide. The RAs also met in weekly individual and area meetings where they discussed their problems and upcoming events. At the end of the year all the RAs got together for an awards ceremony. — Greg Scharnagl 2) C. Kuperman 1) RAs enjoy the same past times as other students. 2) RAs are always available to give advice and help out with school work. 3) Part of the RA ' s job includes vast amounts of paperwork. 4) Resident Assistants 275 Eating is a big part of life. The campus offered students 13 different eating establishments each with its own motif and unique atmosphere. For proper, " upperclass " dining students had the opportunity to eat in the Arredondo Room where everything was served in an appealing fashion. Of course, on a rowdy Friday and Saturday night, or any other night for that matter, a convivial crowd always in the Orange and Brew celebrating a Gator win or loss accordingly. The biggest improvement to the dining service was the addition of the Gator Club Dining Service. It was a new method of paying for food by using a form of credit card. It improved the convenience of eating on campus. Even so, there were draw- backs. Sophomore Tracy Treller who lived in Broward Hall said, " The card is really nice, but you don ' t realize how much things cost and you can spend a lot of money real fast. " There were always certain eating spots off campus that drew the students ' A new sandwich and video restaurant called Rock Hero ' s was an interesting to the already long list of regulars like Joe ' s Deli and Students could get pizza at Cazzoli ' s or was a popular late-night establishment serving breakfast 24 hours a day. — Gregory A. Scharnagl 1) Students have 13 different eating areas from which to choose to eat. Two Gators here choose from the variety of entrees offered at the Rathskeller. 2) Because of the unusual eating habits of college students, Skeeter ' s is open 24 hours a day and serves large meals. 3) C. Kuperman 3) Since is just off campus anytime is a good time to break from studies and enjoy the great taste of McDonald ' s. 276 Eating On and Around Campus 1) C.

The festivities began with " All Nite Movies, " which included such blockbusters as 48 Hours, Temple of Doom and Footloose. Rain caused movie goers to sit on plastic bags at the bandshell. It seemed as though the weather would once again dampen the spirits of " Burgerfest, " and " Spring Splash, " but an hour before preparation began the ,clouds disappeared and the show went on. The main events included music provided by the Gainesville Jazz All- stars and hamburgers served by Alpha Phi Omega. Residents were given several chances to display their varied talents. A photo contest was held with winners in black and white and color categories. Hula hooping, hula dancing and lip synching contests were held at " A Night at the Rat. " The week ' s festivities culminated in the semi-formal affair at Graham Hall, the " Tie and Tails Club. " Different rooms were set up to provide a variety of entertainment. On the Patio, residents ' could enjoy the antics of a comedian or try their luck in the Casino at craps and blackjack. — Nicole J.

Y oung Residence Hall Week 279 When most people applied for on campus housing they wondered what their roommate would be like. some people never gave this question a second thought. These were the people who lived in married housing with their spouses. Although most people think of college as a place for swinging singles, married couples also went to school in Gator They were provided with special housing ing that catered to their unique needs. The biggest difference between married housing and regular residence hall living was that the villages were watched over by a Resident Manager instead of a Resident Assistant. " I enjoyed living in married housing much more than I enjoyed living in the residence hall, " said Donna Cattoti. Living at Diamond Village, Tanglewood, Maguire Village, University Village South and Corry Village was anything but boring. Married housing offered a variety of different activities for residents. During the 1) The married housing facilities are normally calm and peaceful. 2) Students take a break from studies to spend time with their families. 3) 280 Married Housing semester different villages sponsored get- togethers, barbecues, sports events and other activities allowing the residents to get to know each other. Another unique aspect about married housing was the bulletin that they printed up for their residents. It contained helpful information such as a list of babysitters. Besides the afforadable price of living on campus, one of the nicest aspects of married housing was that other couples were going through similar problems. " It is always nice to be able to talk to people who understand your said Cattoti. " If your next door neighbor was not there enough, there was always a marriage counselor that students could talk with about their problems. " — Gregory A. Scharnagl 1) Babysitters available for hire were listed in a monthly bulletin, which made it easier to find someone to watch the children. 2) Married housing planned many get-togethers such as barbecues so that everyone in the village could become acquainted with the other residents. 3) Married couples had a choice of five different villages in which to live. This student is looking over Diamond Village. 4) One of the advantages of living in married housing was being able to walk to different facilities on campus. 3) N. Hughes 4) N. Hughes Married Housing 281 1) Apartments off-campus come fully equipped with kitchens for home cooked meals. 2) Off-campus housing provides larger living quarters for residents. 3) Co-ed roommates enjoy the opportunity to live together. 4) 282 Advantages Disadvantages Off-Campus 3) C. Kuperman With the shortage of on-campus housing, a vast majority of students were forced to live off campus. Their living arrangements varied from apartment living to renting a house or for Gainesville residents, living with parents. Off- campus living clearly had both advantages and disadvantages that most students felt at one time or another. The advantage to off-campus living which came to mind most readily was the greater amount of freedom. Apartment dwellers could come and go as they pleased, fix something to eat when the felt like it and get into the bathroom at a moment ' s notice. Apartment dwellers also had more than one room to live in and to entertain in. With this new-found freedom came new responsibilities. Bills and rent had to be paid once a month, the apartment had to be kept clean and the groceries had to be bought regularly. Also, classes were not a hop, skip and a jump away as they had been while living in the residence halls. This possibly meant driving to school. The number one problem for students who drove was a lack of available parking. Fighting for a space and taking a bus from the commuter lot became commonplace. Deciding to live off-campus was definitely a tough decision, but fortunately or unfortunately as the case may have been, the university decided for most students that off-campus was the only place to live, because they either did not make lottery or were unable to get housing as freshmen. — Colleen Mueller Off-Campus Has Ups and Downs 2) N. Hughes 1) Paying bills is a monthly ritual students offcampus must endure. 2) Parking is available at most apartments, unlike parking on campus or at the Villas. 3) Apartment complexes provide the luxury of a pool right outside the door. 4) Advantages Disadvantages Off-Campus 283 While many students dents chose off campus housing as an alternate to resident hall life, some of these apartment dwellers did so with a different twist. patterned after the sit-corn " Three ' s Company, " many Gators chose to live with roommates of the opposite sex. Many co-ed roommates lived together for convenience sake. Rob Kulics, a from Smithtown, New York, commented, " When I decided to go to the of Florida, I knew that I didn ' t want to live in a dorm. As it turned out, two of my friends from my hometown also were going to Gainesville. We all decided to room together in an apartment. Oh yeah, my two roommates are girls. " Others chose co-ed living arrangements for other reasons. In an informal survey, many women at UF cited reasons they lived with male roommates. The most predominant reason was for security. Louise Filkins, a sophomore from Cocoa Beach, Florida stated " I feel safer knowing there is a guy in the other room, especially with all the crime in Gainesville. " On the other side of the coin, men at UF commented on their reasons for living with female friends. Senior Robert Klein, from North Miami Beach, Florida commented on this. " In addition, there is always to go out with for a night on the town. " Co-ed roommates have become a popular alternative in off campus housing in Gainesville. — Colleen Mueller 1) These roommates work around the problems of two busy lifestyles. 2) Willie Halpern enjoys it when his roommate Louise Filkins occasionally cooks for him. 2) N. Hughes 284 Roommates 1) N. Hughes 2)N. Hughes 1) Roommates John Hixenbaugh and Alycia Orlinsky find studying together a nice part of living together. 2) The male counterpart to Alycia apartment appreciates her domestic qualities. 3) Household chores are shared equally by co-ed roommates Colleen Mueller and Willie Halpern. 3) N. Hughes Roommates 285 When students had to face the dilemma of apartment hunting after their year or years of living on campus, they had two major areas around campus to choose from. They could pick areas farther away from campus, where the apartments were newer, or an area closer to campus, where the accommodations were in an older section of town. Housing in the older section of town, affectionately known to students as " the ghetto " had much to offer students. One of the main advantages to living there was its close proximity to campus. Students did not have to worry about memorizing bus schedules, waiting in long lines for commuter parking passes or getting their bicycles in working condition for the long trek to school. In most cases, it was just a quick walk to campus. Another big plus was the low monthly rent rates. Since apartments there were gene rally older, rent was less expensive. However, most students liked to live there not just because it was so cheap, but they felt the older architectural style was charming. Interior decorating was a challenge to most students and some managed to make real homes out of the apartments.

The S.W. 34th Street area quickly became a popular spot for a great number of students. There were both advantages and disadvantages of living there, but most residents enjoyed their stay. The 34th Street apartments provided a diverse range of student needs and desires. These included tennis courts, swimming pools and clubhouses. Although the location was not particularly close to campus, the apartments were near various hot spots including the Oaks Mall, Swenson ' s and Let ' s Get Physical. Jack Giombetti, a resident of The Woods ap artment complex felt that " the advantages of living here far outweigh the disadvantages. I like to unwind after school with a game of tennis or a swim. I also like the fact that I can get to the mail in just a few minutes. " However, there were some inconveniences of living there. Riding the bus a daily ritual and the commuter lot was like a second home. The price of rent was higher as a result of the fine quality of the living area. Life further away from campus clearly had its advantages and disadvantages. One resident summed it up by saying, " living out here is as good or as bad as you make it.

Besides sponsoring Alcohol Awareness Week, BACCHUS sponsored other events, such as a workshop for alcohol education.

Laura Ensley, then Vice President, became President by order of the SG Constitution. Geoffrey Meyer was named as the new vice-president. In February, Laura Ensley sought election for another term as President under the banner of the GATOR Party — Gators Actively Taking On Responsibility. Ensley ' s party had identified itself as the Progressive Party during the Senate election in the fall and as the STAR Party during Oscar Brennan ' s election. The primary opponent of Ensley was Earl Ziebarth ' s Beach Party. The fir st election, however, was declared void by the Honor Court since some candidates for lesser SG offices were accidentally left off the ballot. The second election resulted in a victory for the Beach Party. 19% of the student body voted in the first election and 18% returned to the polls to vote in the second. — Mark Protheroe Student Government 313 Numerous Organizations Meet Diverse Interests The Medical College Council was made up of elected class members who represented all students in the College of Medicine.

" Buddhism greatly influences the life and thought of the Vietnamese people. One of its teachings is patience, a virtue which is necessary for a race of people who lead a very hard life, a life full of struggle for survival. Other virtues are having respect for the elderly and making sacrifice for the children. Vietnamese families have very strong family ties. There is always room for one more, and, indeed, " the more the merrier " is a phrase that aptly describes the attitude of many families in Vietnam, an attitude which renders orphanages and homes for the aged largely unnecessary. The work ethic in Vietnam is one of very hard work, and living for the next generation.- - My-Huong Nguyen College Of Liberal Arts And Sciences Student Council 331 Working Toward Better 1) Collegiate Living Organization For students who desired resident- hall-living arrangements, not under the jurisdiction of the university, the Collegiate Living Organization (C.L.O.) provided an alternative.

The Student Traffic Court was a body of students that heard these students ' appeals and made a decision regarding the appeals. The major purpose of the Student Traffic Court was to provide the opportunity for all students to appeal violations. Not everyone could be a member of the Student Traffic Court, as each member had to go through an interview session with the Chief Justices. — Ken Owens C.

Kuperman The College of Accounting Council was started in order to serve all accounting majors. The group was made up of elected members from each section of the accounting courses. One objective the group fulfilled this year was the use of the Bryan Reading Room. The room was used to place materials on reserve for students. The council printed two newsletters. One, called The Balance Sheet was printed twice a semester and tried to tell accounting students what was happening in the world of business, outside of campus. The other, called Footnotes, was a weekly letter that informed students of campus events and social activities. The group co-sponsored the Annual Student-Faculty Softball Game and Picnic with the Florida Accounting Association. The group brought in speakers from the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to speak on their areas of accounting. High achievers in the accounting major were awarded at the School of Accounting Awards held in March. — Bonnie Gordon 1) Members discuss problems (other than the accounting kind) at a meeting. College of Accounting Council 335 Handling Money And Public Works The Minority Business Society was founded by two minority business students who hoped to develop a network of in-college support systems. The organization is devoted to three main ideals: academic excellence, professionalism and leadership in minority business students. With these three objectives in mind, the society strived to reduce and eventually eliminate the roadblocks for minorities who sought an education in business or accounting. The American Society of Civil Engineers was a pre-professional group of civil engineer majors. Among other events this year, the society hosted the annual Civil Engineers South- eastern Conference Convention on March 28-30. They also attended the Florida Sectionals in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and participated in the Concrete Canoe Competition and fishing and golf tournaments. One interesting field trip the group took was to Jacksonville Public Works to visit the city and learn how the water and sewage systems run. — Bonnie Gordon 1) Margie McGriff and Beth Coleman conduct a meeting.

The group strongly emphasized mental discipline for daily endeavors. Moreover, this emphasis helped one to live in such a fashion so as to avoid the need for physical confrontation. Members were also encouraged to develop self-defense techniques that included jabbing and kicking. Kicks were only aimed waist-high. The organization also promoted Korean customs and vocabulary. The Gator Guard, an organization for Army ROTC students, emphasized discipline through precision drill. The group not only displayed their talents in the Homecoming parade but also in the New Jersey Drill Competition and the New Orleans Mardi Gras Parade. The Black Student Union helped educate students about Afro-American history and culture. Activities included the promotion of Black History Month, fundraisers for Sickle Cell Anemia research, and numerous discussions and seminars concerning the problems that Black Americans face. The Black Student Union also sponsored an organization fair for the 25 black organizations on campus and a lecture by Congressman Walter Fauntroy. — Shonda Adams, Wayne Olson, and Mark Protheroe 1) Brian Fundenburg demonstrates the technique he has acquired through Isshiuryu Karate.

Colon Graduation — it ' s the reason we came here in the first place. As underclassmen, that goal seemed so far away. The concerns were; What should I major in? Should I live on or off campus? Should I pledge a fraternity or sorority? What sports or organizations should I participate in? The other sections of the yearbook portray these questions. But as seniors, a new set of questions and decisions faced us as we prepared for graduation. Where am I going to get a job? Should I go to graduate school? What city will I be living in? Most seniors faced these challenges with mixed emotions. " No more cramming for tests " said Gainey, 4LS, and " finally earning some said Kristen Rieger, 4ED. But clearly there were some fears too. " I ' m afraid I ' ll end up flipping hamburgers at said Lesley Richardson, 4JM. " I ' m afraid I won ' t be able to find a job in the location I want with the salary I said Gwendolyn Dawson, 4AC. Many times, the senior section of a yearbook tends to be not much more than a monotonous series of mug shots. Not only is that boring to look at, but it isn ' t very representative of what being a senior is all about. There is much more to be a senior than just graduation. This section will explore what seniors were doing, and where they planned on going with their lives. There is no way we can capture the experiences of every senior at the university. But there are many experiences we did share. We will try to relate those experiences many seniors had in common, as well as some very unique ones. We hope this section will be enjoyable to the now graduated senior class, and to those who someday hope to be. — Beth Hall David Karns, 4BA, poses for his senior portrait. Seniors 349 Seniors Dawn R.

" The communists have finally decided to let him out (of Nguyen, her mother, her sister and her brother settled down in Fort Walton Beach when they came to the United States. When they got there, Nguyen entered the fifth grade not knowing a word of English except " thank you. " Since she was among the first refugees to come to the U.S., there were no special classes she could take to learn English. " It was really hard, " she said, " but it was so hard it made you work even harder. " Nguyen entered the university right after her junior year of high school. She came up here during the two summers before to take calculus and statistics. She was also familiar with the university her brother and sister studied here. She really liked the university so she decided to apply for early admissions. " There were so many cultural activities that I could get involved with, " Nguyen said. After attending the university for a year, she went back home to graduate with her senior class. While studying at the university, Nguyen was president of the Vietnamese Student Organization and secretary of VISA (Volunteers for International Student Association). She is attending John Hopkins school this fall and hopes to work for the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) when she completes her residency. She hopes to someday return to Vietnam as a doctor for the W.H.O. " But after that, " she said, " Anywhere they send me is O.K.

" At least graduate student Daniel Sapecky thinks so. " I think it will help to have an advanced degree. To some extent, it lets the director and producer know, consciously or subconsciously, that you ' re serious about your work. " Sapecky, a fine arts major, graduated in May with a Master ' s degree in Theatre Performance. The additional two years ' work will enable him to teach his profession, either at a community college or a university, as well as giving what he hopes will be an advantage as a professional actor. He has appeared in major roles in the Florida Players ' productions of Ghostlight and Our Town and the Santa Fe Community College production of The Glass Menagerie. Sapecky said that actors aren ' t insured a part simply by virtue of their standing. " Being accepted into the masters program is not a guarantee that you ' ll act. I have to audition just like anyone else, " he said. Sapecky would eventually like to work in films or on Broadway. The role he would most like to play is that of George in Edward Albee ' s Who ' s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? because " it ' s so demanding there ' s so much to think about. " Other favorite roles would be those of Shakespeare ' s Hamlet and George III, " the meaty roles that everyone would like to play. But, " he said, " I ' ll do anything that comes along and think it ' s wonderful.

A speech communications major from Merritt Island, Cabe spent his years at the university helping to make it more accessible to disabled students. Cabe, who has cerebral palsy, is president of PLUS (Physically Limited University Students), an organization that promotes the needs of disabled students. " I think I can look back on my years here at the university and say that I have been involved in things that will be a permanent part of UF and have a positive A few projects Cabe has worked on include the textbook recording studio and disability awareness month. Last March, more than 50 local celebrities simulated disabilities for a day and then met with the media to discuss their experiences. Cabe believes that access on campus has a great deal in the three years he has been at the university. " If a building is inaccessible and you have to have that class, " Cabe said, " they will move the class to a room that is accessible. " The handy van, which is two years old, has also helped, according to Cabe. " The administration is very helpful Cabe said. " If you have a problem and you can demonstrate that you do, they will help you find a way to solve it; that doesn ' t just go for handicapped stu- dents, " he said. — Beth Hall W.

Answer: The Career Resource Center. Located in the Reitz Union, the Career Resource Center helped give students " the finishing touch to make themselves marketable and said the director, Maurice Mayberry. In addition to the individual attention students received, the Center offered at least three other to help students find their coveted job upon They offer ed a Career Mini-School, a Cooperative Education Program (to help students gain experience in their chosen field) and the College Career Work Experience Program (CCWEP). The Center worked with a number of employers from around the country and the world. Approximately, 4,000 companies were listed with the Career Re- source Center who came to campus to recruit.

Again Everyone remembers the trauma of being a freshman, scanning the crowds of people for a familiar face, adjusting to a new school, new friends, and a new home. Now imagine feeling that way again two years later. Junior year was a time of establishments; you ' ve made friends, established hangouts, and probably felt like you belonged. But for thousands of transfer students, their junior year was a time of transition once more. For Maureen Sullivan, a transfer from the University of Wisconsin at La Crosse, being the " new kid " after being part of a circle of friends wasn ' t always easy. " It was kind of hard at first " , she said, " because everyone seemed to know each other and I was the new kid on the block. But I ' ve made a lot of friends in the dorms and in my major (recreation) classes. " Sullivan came to Florida because her father was transferred to South Florida, but many other students came to Florida from universities and junior colleges up north. Scott DeVought came to Florida from Black Hawk College in Illinois. One of the biggest things that drew DeVought, and his roommate, Terry Grafton, to Gainesville was the climate. " It seems like you ' re on vacation all year round, " said DeVought. " There ' s always something to do instead of sitting inside because it ' s too cold to go Kevin Bonello came to U of F from Pasco-Hernando Community College in New Port Richey. " I went to junior college for two years, " said Bonello, " partially for financial reasons. I plan to go on to dental school and it ' s going to be very expensive, so I thought I ' d save money where I could. " Although there are many reasons for coming to Florida for less than the full four years, most transfer students adjust very well and enjoy their years spent in Gator Country. — Robin Michel Laura A.
