dorms paid by mom and dad in a chic part of town
where they can trot down to the nearest drinking saloon
or club to unwind after an excruciating mid-term exam.
Can do: UMB students' commitment and persistence
come through in other ways. Many students come to
school from a job, or go to work after classes, and then
go home to raise their families. Do you realize what that
takes? To perform a job, to take classes, and to raise a
family, all of which demand an inordinate amount of
time, takes a very special person and we at
UMasslBoston are very fortunate to have many such peo-
ple. UMB students are a determined bunch. If someone
tells us "you can't," we say, "yes, I will."
Look at the large number of foreign students who
come here. Many have the same family and living re-
sponsibilities as the home-grown folks do, but they have

to deal with the barrier of language. English is a hard
language to learn and some foreign students have met
with hostility from impatient people who aren't willing
to listen more carefully or be a little more understand-
ing. Hail to these hearty souls who are determined to
stick it out and reach their objective.
Rainbow: This is what makes UMasslBoston what it is:
its diversity. The people, and their individual exper-
iences, come from all over the nation and the world to
go to school here. We have a lot to learn-and have
learned a lot-from each other. If you want to learn
about the hunger situation in Ethiopia, talk to your Ethi-
opian classmate. If you want to know about how people
feel about the dictatorship in Haiti, talk to the Haitian
person sitting next to you on the bus to the Downtown
Campus. If you have been monitoring the Supreme
Court Chief Iustice confirmation hearings, your good
friend from South Korea might ask you why the hear-
ings are so important.
We learn a lot by working together. Numerous times
UMB students have gotten together to do a project, and
after many obstacles finally pulled it off. For example,
this past year, a group of students got together and
created Student Legal Services. This group encountered
many obstacles: but they were very committed and the
persistence paid off.
Nifty: UMass!Boston's persistence is finally paying
off. We're getting national attention, folks. We were fea-
tured in TIME this year as one of "nine nifty colleges
and Universities." The New York Times commended
UMB's efforts to attract minority students
This new pride in the school has affected

Campus finally has signs-saying UMass
telling people how to find things and places. And now-
hold on to your seats-we have a big sign with our full
name plus the IFK library and State Archives out on
Morrissey Blvd. What took so long?
More than ever before, it means a great deal to gradu-
ate from UMass! Boston. We are starting to get respect.
No longer do we have to look up to other institutions.
We have our own identity now and we're proud of it.
Hopefully, as active alumni, you will continue to
develop and maintain this identity.
Persistence will continue to push UMass!Boston to its
potential. Persistence is what got you this far, and persis-

doesn't stop here. Others will head right into a career.

To The Class of 1986:
Presidents customarily use yearbook messages as occa-
sions to mark the progress of their institutions. In doing
so, they often take note of their campus' enhanced public
reputation, the scholarly achievements of its faculty, im-
provements to the physical plant, and the success of its
The University of Massachusetts at Boston measures up
on all these scores which, taken together, signify the
campus' maturity. I wish, however, to depart from cus-
tom and use this opportunity to focus on a different as-
pect of the institution-you, its students. As has been
noted many times every student at the Boston Campus
has his or her unique story of obstacles overcome and
achievements realized. Your university, like most of our
nation's urban universities, was conceived more than
two decades ago to help individuals like you in pursuit
of learning and a better life. Our success on that score is
our surest mark of progress.
You as a class demonstrate how necessary and
successful the University of Massachusetts at Boston is to
the Commonwealth. You, who have worked and studied
here, and have now graduated are the Boston Campus'
most important achievement during its relatively brief
history. Your record of success will always remain our
most enduring monument.
Congratulations and best wishes in all your endeavors.

To the Graduating Class of 1986:
l congratulate each and every one of you upon the
completion of this stage of your education at the Univer-
sity of Massachusetts at Boston. Whatever your age, or
sex, or race, whatever your initial educational strengths
or weaknesses, you have proven to the satisfaction of
your faculty that you have mastered the requirements of
this institution. For some of you it has been the fulfill-
ment of a goal long ago established, for others it has
been a journey marked by new and changing personal
discoveries. It is my hope that for all of you it has been
just the beginning of an endless excitement for learning.
You have been part of an academic community that
demands the best of itself and has demanded the best of
you. As you take your well earned place in a world that
will be equally demanding, you must meet every chal-
lenge with the energy and generosity which were the
hallmarks of your success at UMass!Boston.
In that spirit, let me remind you of an old church cus-
tom called tithing, in which the parishioner donates one
tenth of personal income to the church. Let's create with
the class of 1986 a new custom of social tithing-donate
10? of your time and energy to making Boston and
Massachusetts, the nation, and the world a better place
for all of us. Spend 90? of your time on yourself and
your family-earning a living, advancing your career,
furthering your education-but give the other 10? to the
community. Tithe yourself. The community doesn't be-
long to someone else-it belongs to you-the rimzrnzmify
During a very important part of your life you have
been a part of us. I urge you to maintain your ties to this
University. Please keep in touch and return to visit. ln
the years ahead let us relish our mutual pride in one an-
other's accomplishments as we grow and develop togeth-

This past Ianuary 20th, 1986, marks the first day this
country will have celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King Ir. as a national holiday. By actnof Congress,
duly signed by President Reagan, his birthday will be
celebrated on the third Monday of this and every
King was a champion for freedom and justice for all
people, a man who lived to combat the violent evils of
social injustice without the use of violence himself. Al-
though he never held or sought public office, King
shaped and ,made more political change than any
politician or private citizen of our era. On April 4, 1968,
the man who had the courage to love and inspire all peo-
ple to join hands as a nation was slain on a motel
balcony in Memphis, Tennessee.
King was the beacon of the civil rights movement,
with his Doctrine of Non-Violent Social Change, he
confronted segregation, exposing the violent opposition
on national television with boycotts, sit-ins, and freedom
marches. "ln Birmingham, we made a frontal attack upon
the segregation and oppression of Negroes in Alabama,"
said King. "There, before the unbelieving eyes of mil-
lions of television viewers, and in the front pages of
newspapers, we exposed the evils of bigotry in all its vi-
The Birmingham police had used firehoses and attack
dogs on freedom marching families of men, women and
children. National newspapers published pictures of
these horrifying events. King believed this was a turning
point in the drive for Civil Rights because it was now no
longer possible for 'people of conscience to ignore the
desperation of their plea. "I have no fears about the
outcome of our struggle in Birmingham," King said,
"even if our motives are presently misunderstood. We
will reach the goal of freedom in Birmingham and all
over the nation, because the goal of America is freedom.
Abused and scorned as though we may be, our destiny is
tied up with the destiny of America . . . We will win our
freedom because the sacred heritage of our nation and
the eternal will of God are embodied in our echoing
"Our history," said King of Black Americans, "is
bound up with the history of America. We built homes
and houses for our masters and suffered injustice and hu-
miliation, but out of a bottomless pit vitality continued
to live and grow. If the inexpressible cruelties of slavery
could not extinguish our existence, the opposition we
now face will surely fail."
Perhaps we can use some of the ideals of perseverance,
love and brotherhood taught to us by Martin Luther
King, Ir. Perhaps as we go forth in our own lives we'll
remember the pain and injustice suffered by our mothers
and fathers of all origins so that we, as an extension of
them, can appreciate the freedoms that they sacrificed so
much for. Maybe we will start to think of ourselves as
brothers and sisters, as Dr. King dreamed, when hearing
the National anthem at a Red Sox game or discussing
apartheid in South Africa. If we are to continue to grow
and truly be the nation we were intended to be, we must
find it in our hearts to teach our children the value and
power of life. For we are the children that Dr. King
spoke of when he addressed 250,000 people in
Washington in 1963:
"I have a dream . . . that one day little black boys and
black girls will be able to join with little white boys and
white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers . . .
This will be the day, when all of God's children will be
able to sing with new meaning 'My country 'tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my
fathers died, land of the Pilgrims' pride, from every
mountain side let freedom ringl' "
It is to the loving memory and spirit of Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King Ir. that we, the staff of The BEACON 1986, dedi-
cate this book.

Frank Manning, 1902-19 6
One of the most important and influential people to come to
U. Mass. Boston was a man that most UMB students never had
the pleasure of meeting. He was Frank I. Manning, a man who
did more than most countries to make sure that the elderly
were not forgotten in a society that increasingly caters to the
Manning was a man who dedicated his life to public service.
Much of Manning's earlier work involved starting and
organizing unions where laborers faced unjust conditions.
Manning was asked to speak to, and speak for, many groups
involved in union activities. He wrote letters to interested
parties all over the country for causes he believed in, and even
went to jail once to protect those beliefs. Sacrifice was some-
thing Frank Manning knew about quite well.
After years of service to his fellow man Manning retired in
1967, a time when the social unrest of the sixties was beginning
to peak. Many groups of people who were feeling lost or left
out of the mainstream of society were finding themselves, and
taking a stand for their rights and dignity. Manning took note
at what older Americans were going through, and after raising
families on what today would merely be laundry mat change,
older Americans were being discarded and ignored by a society
with a short memory. lt affected him deeply to find out that, at
the time of his retirement, the average social security check re-
ceived by retired Americans was only 59400. Manning was also
grieved to see many people displaced from their long time
homes to make way for urban development.
Manning could not sit idly by and watch this happen and
realized his "retirement" was a way of accomplishing more
than ever. "I knew then that my job in life was not finished
and that neither was it for other older Americans." Manning
began by rallying senior citizens' club from all over
Massachusetts, urging them to communicate with each other
and to maintain contact. As a united group, Manning felt they
would be more effective in getting legislators to be sensitive to
issues of the elderly.
To say that Manning achieved a level of success would be an
understatement. Manning bolstered his already well-known
reputation as potent but eloquent speaker at many gatherings
and meetings dealing with senior citizens issues. He testified at
hearings to get rapid transit fares lowered for senior citizens.
He formed a group called Massachusetts Association of Older
Americans KMAOAJ. In time, the MAOA was able to recieve
non-profit organization status and grants which enabled it to
hire a full time staff. Its work goes on to this day. Manning also
was invited to lead Mass. delegations to the White House for
the President's Council on Aging, both in 1971 and 1981.
Manning had an influence on the Gerentology Program at
the University of Massachusetts at Boston. At the planning
stage, Manning helped to provide direction with some of his
suggestions. He felt it was particularly important that the
program have a public policy emphasis twhich is right in line
with the philosophy of UMB's College of Public and Communi-
ty Service, where the Gerentology Program operates at the
Downtown Campusj and that the students learn about the leg-
islative process and how to make it work for them.
Several years later after the Gerentology program was
founded in 1980, the program's students and faculty made an
official request to the Dean that the commencement certificate
for students who successfully complete the program be named
in honor of Frank I. Manning. This was not just a reward for
his input and guidance in starting the program, it was a tribute
to a man who helped make the problems of aging an important
issue that concerns all Americans. Manning's name appears
proudly on all the certificates.
Manning died in the summer of 1986. In his ailing health, he
still attended the commencement ceremonies of the
Gerentology Program and Institute, something he had made a
point of doing over the last several years. As usual, he mixed
his sharp but subtle wit with serious matters, and his warmth
filled the hall at the Iohn F. Kennedy library. As one looks
over Mannings many goals and accomplishments, one thing
comes to mind that he once said that would seem to sum up his
"Do not be deterred by failure, as there is great satisfaction
in associating with your fellow man in trying to do some-
thing that will help certain people of humanity."
He will be missed. i

Christmas time at UMass!Boston usually means
looking forward to vacation without embedding one's
eyes in a book. It also means the frustrating task of gift
buying, tree trimming, and dealing with Christmas ad-
Then there are the hearty souls who truly try to find
the Christmas spirit. They know that it must mean more
than "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Christmas is a time
of family, warmth, sacrifice, and love. This is what
"Black Nativity" at UMass!Boston was all about.
Black Nativity was put on by the Black Student Center.
The musical, told in dance and in song, is the story of
Ioseph and Mary and the birth of Iesus. Many UMass
Students along with children from the Boston Area per-
formed in the Christmas tribute.
As the cast walked down the aisles of the Wheatly
Auditorium, the audience was enraptured at the sight of
the people holding candles as they sang, looking angelic
in their long, flowing, ceremonial robes. The spirit of
Christmas was felt by all as the softly lit candles gave a
faint glow to the faces hopeful children, looking ahead
to a world with peace and good will to all. E

The Biology Department
The UMassfBoston Biology Department offers a
diverse and high quality degree program to one of the
largest groups of majors at the Harbor campus. Graduates
of the department have an excellent record of admission
to medical and graduate programs. According to a recent
survey, sixteen percent had entered medical, dental or
veterinary schools, while another forty percent had been
accepted into other graduate programs. Others entered
the teaching profession, work for environmental agen-
cies, or became lab technicians in area laboratories.
The department, together with the Anthropology and
Psychology departments, offers cross-disciplinary pro-
grams in Biology of Human Populations and in
Biobehavioral Studies. Within the department, students
can take a double major in Biology and Medical Technol-
ogy. Graduate students may choose Biotechnology and
Biomedical Science, Applied Marine Ecology or more tra-
ditional concentrations in Botany, Cell Biology,
Physiology or Population Biology.
Biology department chair, Dr. Christine Armett-Kibel,
spoke at length about the department during a Iune in-
terview with Tlze Beacon. She told us that a strength of
the department and of the university in general is that
the university provides an environment that encourages
close working relationships between students and
faculty. She points out that upper level classes are gener-
ally small and that students are required to take a large
number of lab courses. These lab courses provide valu-
able exposure to current techniques and allow students a
chance to meet and know their professors on a personal
level. Dr. Kibel believes that the faculty "enjoys a sense
of accomplishment when they observe the intellectual
development of their students, who move through in-
creasingly demanding biology courses, often to the point
of undertaking independent research projects".
Later we learned that motivated students in the
undergraduate program were given every opportunity to
work as assistants in the research projects of their
professors. This was surprising, for at most schools, these
opportunities are reserved for graduate students.
The department has been successful in obtaining
funding from a special program of the National Science
Foundation for Undergraduate Research Institutions like
UMass!Boston. Through such funding, the Federal
government hopes to encourage students to continue
their education at a graduate school level, and also hopes
that exposing undergraduate students to actual research
projects is a good way to accomplish this goal.
In an age of endless budget cuts, it is encouraging to
note that the UMass!Boston Biology department has
been able to compete successfully with some of the best
universities in the country for sponsored research
funding, and it seems to be getting better at doing so
with each passing year. Currently, faculty members
receive research grants from a wide variety of sources,
including the National Institute of Health, the National
Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agen-
cy and the Agency for International Development.
A list of significant funded projects underway at
UMass this year would include the following: an impor-
tant study on the immune systems of insects as it relates
to disease control being conducted by Dr. Sugumaran, an
investigation of the mechanism of RNA synthesis in
eucaryotic organism by Dr. Ackerman, and a study on
curiously low natural fertility among natives of High-
land, New Guinea, by Dr. Campbell. Dr. Wilkes, a world
renowned corn specialist and consultant for the Maize
Seed Bank in Mexico, is conducting research on domesti-
cated seed plants, whereas pollen analysis and archae-
ological botany are subjects being investigated by Dr.
Kaplan. Two other funded research projects of interest
are a study on insect visual systems by Drs. White and
Bennett, and research on the behavior and ecology of
seabirds being conducted by UMass's resident
In conclusion, Dr. Christine, Dr. Armett-Kiebel had
these words to say to graduating seniors-"We congratu-
late the graduating class! We always remain interested in
our alumni and hope that the members of this class will
keep us informed of their progress after leaving

One of the biggest issues to hit UMass!Boston this
year was the shut down of the elevators at the Down-
town Campus. While an elevator breaking down is no
news to any UMass student, a deliberate barring of ele-
vator use is. Iudged to be unsafe, the administration had
them shut down after numerous reports of elevators
flying past selected floors.
Maintainence at the 13-floor Downtown Campus
building has never exactly been what one might call
breath-taking. The shutdown was viewed by many CPCS
students as the first major step in what would ultimately
be complete abandonment of the Downtown Campus
building. Not about to take this lying down, CPCS stu-
dents organized a passionate protest and marched to the
State House. Once there, state officials and legislators
greeted the crowd of CPCS students and sympathetic
Harbor Campus students and later promised to repair
two of the ailing elevators. CPCS does not plan to let this
issue fade and is prepared to march once more if 250 Stu-
art Street is threatened again. I

April fourth, 1986, was the eighteenth anniversary of
the assassination of Martin Luther King. On this night,
the Black Student Center, the office of the Vice
Chancellor for the Division of Student Affairs, sponsored
a production that celebrated the spirit and impact of Rev-
In a "one-man" performance, Al Eaton of City Stage
Company portrayed the life and times of Martin Luther
King. His energy captivated the audience as he reenacted
the impact of the civil rights movement.
The opening scene begins with Al Eaton as a tenant
farmer named Willie Smith who is confronted with this
new movement called "civil rights". He describes the be-
ginning of the movement as he tells of Rosa Park's bold
incident on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Then Al
Eaton with a quick costume change, begins delivering a
powerful section of Martin Luther King Irfs speech enti-
tled "We shall overcome." Next, he assumes his role as a
tenant farmer and expresses his reluctance to become in-
volved with the movement. He depicts with powerful
Photographs by Ioe Marchese
passion the terror that the Klu Klux Klan imposes on
him and how they force him to mind his own business
"like he was supposed to be doing."
The next character that Eaton portrays is Nathaniel B.
Wright, a young black, brought up in an all white afflu-
ent community. As he states, "My parents were polite
enough to not mention that I was a Negro." Nathaniel
expresses his frustration with this identity crisis. His ex-
posure to an all white society has left him confused as to
what a black man should be and how to act. He then
decides to go to the NAACP to join "the cause" and to
discover how to be "truely black."
The fourth transition has much intensity and realism.
A sharp contrast is made as Al Eaton changes character
from Nathanal B. Wright to a black militant involved
with the black panthers. This scene portrays the disillu-
sionment that many blacks were feeling toward King's
non-violent practices. This movement states, "I got no
more cheeks to turn," in response to putting christian
morals into practice in his fight against racism. His dia-
logue is intense and filled with the conviction as he de-
scribes in detail the horror that his family experienced
from the KKK as a result of their non-violent protests.
He has lost hope and feels his only solution is to retali-
ate. His hatred towards the whites who despise him an
the injustice he is forced to live with is evident.
These four characters, the tenant farmer, the black
youth raised in the suburbs, the black militant and Mar-
tin Luther King Ir., continue to be portrayed as the
production continues. Al Eaton is actually depicting the
lives of these three men and their response to Martin Lu-
ther King Ir. and the civil rights movement. The tenant
farmer eventually confronts his flaws and decides to join
the march on Washington, making his new motto "make
way for the children." The black suburbanite begins to
implement non-violent techniques as well, as he pre-
pares for the march. The black militant becomes
disillusioned with the lack of unity among the Panthers
and the lack of impact their ideology was having in
solving racial issues. As a result, he supports King once
more. Al Eaton then closes it out with a powerful excerpt
from King's famous "I've been to the Mountain Top"
speech. The entire production truely portrays the hope
that King instilled in many people from different back-
Al Eaton's performance was so real that it felt as if you
were actually reliving the civil rights movement through
three very different sets of eyes. His imitation of King
was powerful and genuine. The result was very effective
and moving. The audience's eyes began to swell as
Eaton's production came to a climactic close. Indeed Ea-
ton succeeded in making this evening a real tribute to

I hope Howth Castle will have a long life at UMB. With
a dedicated staff, and with support from the student
body, it can. It is only two issues old right now. The lat-
est issue is very different from the first. I think the
changes that we made this year have not only improved
its appearance, but they have made it simply easier to
read. The type is larger, with one column of print per
page. This is the kind of format used by such eminent
literary quarterlies as the Paris Review, Ploughshares, and
many others. It does justice to both reader and writer.
Any university without its own student-run, student-
funded magazine is missing a growth ring. There are
many talented artists, writers and photographers here at
UMB, and they need attentionp they need to show us
who we are, how we are. They have much to sharep hu-
mor, drama, history, a photograph of someone alone in a
strangely lit place. In this world of videos we need good
short stories, good poems, provocative essays and art.
Here at UMB Howth Castle is more than likely the first
publication in which serious student artists and writers
can acquire some recognition for their efforts. I

I believe that this year's Mass Media is the best it has
ever been. I hope that the many individuals that dedi-
.cated the inordinate amounts of time that producing a
good newspaper takes, and that received in return for
thier best efforts the silence of the University communi-
ty fexcept when we were being accused of publishing
ipronography or communist propogandaj, and the
capricious Cat bestl and partial compensation of the Uni-
.versity's extraordinarily complex and incomprehensible
system of renumeration for student workers, have at
rleast the satisfaction of knowing that their work was ex-
ceptionally good. Michael Holley, who served tirelessly
falthough not without occasional noisy outburstsl not
only as Editor but as Advertising Manager, staff photog-
rapher, and Office Manager, is not alone responsible for
the fine quality of the Mass Media. Ron Bedig worked as-
siduously, and, it should be added, gratis, as the paper's
fPhoto Editor. Bill Platt struggled and emerged seemingly
'unscathed falthough he assures us there are deep
psychological scarsj through the office of News Editor,
arguably the paper's most traumatic position. Brian
Deardon, as Sports Editor and sole sports writer, pro-
lduced more copy than any of us would previously have
ibet humanly possible. Mary Crisafi and Laura Loop
fzworked until the wee hours every Monday night with
the result that the paper is one of the most professional-
looking student newspapers in the Boston area. Evelyn
Ashford and Scott T. Madden edited out our split
infinitives so effectively that I have yet to learn what
one is, since I'm sure that if ever I write one it will be
automatically corrected. Charlie Goldberg wrote careful,
thoughtful criticism of local art, theatre, dance and music
as a more or less one-man Art Department. john Trum-
bull was thoughtful enough once again to provide us
with Nosey, the perpetually bewildered UMass student
who lives within all of us, but who fame out of his shell
sufficiently this past semester to launch a Qsadlyl unsuc-
cessful bid for the Student Senate. We hope he will run
again next year. A full roster of Mass Media personalities
could never be complete without mentioning the work
of Brian McDivitt, who succeeded myself as chief colum-
nist and resident muck-raker. McDivitt's outspoken and
unabashedly partisan commentary kept UMass students
aware of the antics of their own representatives in the
Student Senate, and the administration as well. I am in-
ordinately pleased and proud to have had the opportuni-

to protecting the rights of the consumer and preventing
further destruction to our environment. Over 100,000
students actively support MassPIRG and another 100,000
other Massachusetts citizens are also members.
MassPIRG at UMass!Boston is in its fourteenth year. In
the past we have worked on getting legislation passed in
the State House like the Bank Clearing Bill, the Pollution
Penalties Bill, and more recently this past December, a
MassPIRG bill which forces Massachusetts' industry to
reduce sulphur-dioxide emissions which cause acid rain.
MassPIRG here at UMass!Boston is currently working
for the passage of a hazardous waste clean-up bill ttimely

The Women's Center
by Kathy O'Neil
Until recently, the Women's Center at UMB had been
a relatively low-profile organization. Angela O'Garro,
the Center's new business director, says that the Wom-
en's Center faced two obstacles in its quest for growth.
One problem was that its old office space was much too
small to serve as a meeting space for resource center.
Another problem was that the elimination of the free pe-
riod, during the Boston State!UMassfBoston merger, pre-
vented many previously active members from gathering
This past Ianuary, the UMB Women's Center exper-
ienced a rebirth of sorts. After a lengthy bureaucratic
struggle, the Women's Center was finally able to relocate
to a larger space. The new Women's Center is located in
Room 122, on the fourth floor of Wheatly Hall. The room
had previously served as the Student Senate conference
room. Since the move, the Women's Center has wasted
no time in planning and sponsoring activities for the
The Center itself is a large, pleasant and comfortable
room. There are several chairs and couches, as well as a
long meeting table with chairs. Thanks to the
UMassfBoston greenhouse, the Center has an attractive
variety of thriving potted and hanging plants. There is a
refrigerator for students to leave a lunch in, if they wish
to eat at the Center. Students who drop in to socialize, or

for quiet study, will usually find a fresh pot of coffee
brewing, and can help themselves to a cup. All female
students are encouraged to utilize the Center on a walk-
in basis, the emphasis at the Women's Center is on an
atmosphere of community, rather than a members-only
The expressed goal of the Center is to unite with other
campus and community organizations in order to
provide services and referrals for women. At this time,
the Center has a well-stocked pamphlet rack, where stu-
dents may find information on such issues as health and
safety, child care, legal problems and job finding. A large
bulletin board displays additional information on
upcoming feminist or female oriented social events,
roommatefapartment ads, and other topics of interest.
For the spring semester, the Center offers classes in yoga,
in self-defense, and in weight training.
In the spirit of advocacy and issues orientation, the
Center is trying to implement a discussion group for
victims of rape. Angela O'Garro reports that the Wom-
en's Center is in the process of hiring Cathy
McLaughlin, a woman who has had ten years experience
as a counsellor of individuals and families. Cathy will be
available approximately ten hours a week to provide
In addition to their daily services, the Women's Center
is an active sponsor of cultural events. Events for the
Spring of 1986 include a four-part speaker's series enti-
tled, "Career Issues for Women", which is co-sponsored
by the Women's Studies Program. Every Tuesday, the
Women's Center screens a different film in the Large
Science Auditorium. The films deal with various impor-
tant issues in the lives of women in America, in Europe,
and in Third World nations. Together with the Music
Department, the Center sponsored an "Evening of jazz",
featuring Dianthe Myers-Spencer, the director of the U.
Mass jazz Ensemble.
Cn March 4, 1986, the Women's Center began a
monthly supplement, entitled Voices, in the Mass Media.
Voices featured writing, poetry and photography from
female members of the student body and faculty. Also in
March, the Center is sent a contingent to the "March for
Women's Lives", in Washington, D.C.
The Women's Center is senate funded, with a staff of
six, including program director Deborah Wellsby. They
encourage volunteers to join in planning and assisting at
all their various activities. In this first semester of its
renewed growth, the Women's Center has already
undertaken some ambitious projects. The Center's staff
hopes that their new visibility as an active organization
will encourage many more female students to drop in
and take advantage of the Center's resources. E

The Health Promotion Center at UMass!Boston pro-
vides the students with a variety of services and informa-
tion. They are committed to helping students promote
their health. They emphasize not only physical health
but also emotional, psychological, spiritual, and
environmental health as well.
Their ongoing Weight Loss, Smoking Liberation, and
Stress Management Workshops meet personal needs.
Their Stress Management Program specifically deals with
procrastination, exam anxiety, and the fear of speaking
in front of groups. Aside from these regular programs,
the Health Promotion Center makes every effort to keep
people informed on current health issues and
controversies. They want students to be aware of their
health alternatives and options. They accomplish this by
providing an extensive referral service. Students are able
to gain access to specific information that can help them
discover where their needs can best be met.
The center also utilizes it's student staff members as a
resource in keeping up to date with the students needs.
According to Vicki Soler, HPC's Coordinator, the student
staff members are encouraged to express their ideas and
to contribute new insights. If the center becomes aware
of some topic that students want more information on,
workshops can be created for this purpose. As a result,
the student employees act as a liason between the full
time staff and the student community, enabling the cen-
ter to know the present needs and concerns of the Uni-
The Health Promotion Center can be considered "the
outreach arm" of the University Health Services. The
HPC's involvement in assisting and coordinating the
Blood Drive on campus continues to be a success. Not
only do they educate students about outside community
programs, they also help them become aware of the
many health services available on campus.
The HPC's commitment to the students at UMB is
quite evident. Their goal is to become even more visible
on a campus where health is becoming increasingly im-
portant. As a result, each year the number of students
who take advantage of the Center increases. The staff at
the Health Promotion Center are always willing to an-
swer questions, provide options, and to keep students in-
formed. The Health Promotion Center is dedicated to
keeping students healthy during their years at

The day had arrived for the Regional Inter-Collegiate
College Bowl championship. Hundreds of competitors
representing most of New England's Colleges and Uni-
versities would gather that Saturday morning at Fitch-
burg State College, receive a briefing on the scheduled
events, and check into their prospective hotels and size
up the competition.
UMB sent intellectual giants Phil Clark, Louis
Gonzalez, Robert tScoopJ Carlson, who sported a bright
Hawaiian beachshirt, and Robert Batmanghelidj, who be-
came affectionately known by the opposition as simply
"Batman" the English-Man. The team was known as
The College Bowl is essentially an academic Trivial
Pursuit quiz game, where each college sends four repre-
sentatives and play one another until all but two teams
are eliminated leaving the remaining two to battle for
the championship. Points are awarded for correct
answers to questions ranging from "Name the twelfth
President of the United States" to "What year did Ein-
stein win the Noble prize?"
It was Saturday morning and a confident UMB team
arrived at the UMB Administration building to prepare
for the hour long journey to Fitchburg.
UMB got off to a slow start in round one against UNH
with an early score of 90 to -5 tnegative points being
awarded for incorrect answersj
"Let's not answer anymore questions", whispered Bat-
man to teammate Phil Clark CKentJ, "that way at leastl
we'll look cool." But tScoopJ Carlson wasn't hearing anyi
of that and insisted on playing to the death in the spirit
of true competitiveness. UMB eventually scored positive
points but took a hard discouraging loss. "Let's go back
to the hotel and find some action," exclaimed team Cap-
tain Carlson who refused to feel defeated. So it was back
to the hotel with a pit stop for pizza and beer.
Once at the hotel the team had time to regroup and,
make strategy changes for their next and final opponent,
Stonehill College. Moral was low, but the hotel was paid
for, and there was the night-on-the-town to look forward .
to, not to mention a private banquet for all Collegel
Bowlers involved in the tournament. l
It was now an hour before the next bout. "Hey Kurt,"l
said Phil, to this writer, coming out of the shower, "takel
this towel and throw it into the ring if we start to get
slaughtered again, at least we might get a few laughs."

UMB came out with a strong lead with a quick series

itake the victory and move on to the finals. But the jinx
.took place when a cute co-ed from the opposition ex-
pressed an attraction for team "Pretty Boy," Phil Clark
and stole his concentration. Comments not pertaining to
fthe game went back and forth between the UMB and

invited back to compete again. i

Located on the third floor of the Administration build-
ing amongst the hierarchy of the carpeted executive
offices is the office for Affirmative Action, headed by Di-
rector Iocelind Cant.
The office has many vitally important functions, all of
which are designed to promote equality without regard
to race, sex or national origin specifically at UMass!Bos-
"One of our chief concerns here in this office" says
Ms. Cant, "is to insure that the Civil Rights of people
here at the University are not violated."
I .. I fe
Ms. Cant went on to explain that the office is also very
committed to an active role regarding the crime of sexual
harrassment, which according to their records has
plagued UMB for some years. She is confident however
that new procedures implemented since her arrival at the
University in 1982 will go a long way in alleviating this
problem. The office has been, and will continue to be,
involved in conducting conferences and seminars re-
garding sexual harassment and the profound emotional
and psychological effects it has on not only students, but
faculty, secretaries, and professional staff as well.
As well as being a hearing officer for grievances for
those seeking fair treatment regarding sexual and race
related issues, Ms. Cant and her staff are also concerned
with issues regarding fairness towards UMass veterans
and handicapped as well.
1986 has marked a year for great strides for the office's
accomplishments. This year they have completed a for-
mal study of minority hiring practices within the UMB
work force. The study is entitled Utilization Workforce
f , Z
Analysis and takes a hard and precise look at the repre- i
sentation of minorities and women within every depart-
ment of the University. Then comparisons are made
using those figures compared with the number of avail- A
able women and minorities in each discipline.
Ms. Gant was quite pleased to say that UMB holds the ,
highest position in terms of minority employment
among all institutions of higher education in New'
England, and is well on its way to becoming one of the
top recruiters in the nation.
"If we are committed to Affirmative Action
guidelines" insists Ms. Gant, "then it is incumbent on
the University to fulfill it's obligation in recruiting and

numbers it represents." T
The office also recognizes what will be a visable in-E
crease in the number of Hispanics at UMB. The officel
vows to aggressively recruit Hispanic faculty tol
adequately respond to a very diversified community.
Ms. Gant attributes a great deal of the office'sl
effectiveness to a very cooperative and sensitive execu-T
tive administration. She was happy that Chancellor Rob-3
ert Corrigan has often been instrumental concerning is-l
sues of Affirmative Action. Issues that other institutionl
executive officers would rather ignore.
Ms. C-ant is constantly amazed at the ignorant sexist
and racist opposition she and the office encounter
concerning issues that are not only "morally right buti
legally mandated", as she puts it. Obviously, many bar-T
riers still exist that need attention if Affirmative Action?
is to work as it was intended. As long as these barriers-
exist, the staff at the Affirmative Action office will be'
kept plenty busy. They will continue to work hard for

A UMB Bus Driver if
When you step on a UMB bus, do you ever think who
the person is that is driving the bus? Probably not. Most
students are too intent on getting on the bus and finding
a seat to think of anything else. But these drivers are hu-
man, of course, and work hard at their jobs. And some,
like George Matney, make a special effort to be helpful
Matney has been driving for less than a year as a UMB
bus driver. He is quite different compared to the other
bus drivers. Matney thinks highly of his job.
"The job is very interesting and has a lot of prestige",
he says. One who feels that way about his job also pays
attention to the little things. On the left side of Matney's
seat on the bus is his uniform jacket, neatly ironed and
wrapped in cellophane. Appearance is obviously impor-
tant to Matney. But what about the day-in and day-out
chore of having to prepare the uniform for work?
"I like the idea of wearing a uniform to work," Matney
says. "It gives me authority and I feel like I have force."
Doesn't driving a bus every day tend to get boring?
"I just do it and don't dwell on it," he says, laughing.
It's a good thing that Matney has such a positive atti-
tude toward his work or else he never would have been
able to have worked for 30 years as a professional driver.
Amazingly enough, he has never had an accident. "You
got to have a lot of patience with the traffic," Matney
says. Students in general are very pleasant to deal with
according to Matney, who knows some on a first name
basis. A student need not be hesitant to ask Matney to
make an unscheduled stop. He will be glad to.
One would think Matney would tire easily from
working the kind of hours he works. His day starts at
8:00am and ends at 6:30pm. But he enjoys his work, and
often asks for overtime. There is no doubting his dedica-
Before driving for UMass!Boston, Matney worked as a
truck driver for a company based in Roxbury. Needing
extra income, he went to the company's office on
Norfolk street to apply for an additional part-time posi-
tion. When the UMB spot came up, he grabbed it. He
found that he liked driving buses so much that he asked
to come on full-time. He soon got his wish, and now
with full-time status he enjoys some benefits such as
union membership and insurance coverage.
Next time you run to the UMass bus thinking of only
of acquiring a seat and not being late for class, take a
look at the person who is driving you to school. It just
might be George Matney.
Good, friendly, helpful people are a rare pleasure at
UMass!Boston, and we should be thankful to folks like
George Matney for making life a little easier. E
Ondine, the name for a water nymph, is a play about
the life of one such ondine. She was found, as a baby, on
the bank of a lake, by a childless couple. They adopt

One day Ritter von Wittenstein zu Wittenstein fBi1ly
Donaldj is walking through the forest to test his love for
his betrothed, Bertha, CSharon Squiresj the King's daugh-
ter. The old couple Uohn O'Donoghue, Bariyyah New-
tonj asks Ondine to fetch some food and when she sees
Ritter, she falls madly in love with him.
The plot thickens as Ondine, in order to be able to
marry Ritter, is made to promise that if Ritter betrays her
in any way, then she will die. The two marry, but Bertha
manages to get Ritter back in love with her and proves
that his marriage to Ondine is void because Ondine is
not human. Ritter then marries Bertha and Ondine dies.
The ending is a sad testiment to love because Ritter is
made to remember nothing of his love for Ondine. The
play was directed by Susan McGinley. i

1986 Division III NCAA Champions
The cleats showed no sign of wear. The spandex suits still glistened in the sunshine, and the sweat continued to
bead down the side of their determined faces. One championship wasn't enough for these inspired athletes. The
UMasslBoston Women's Track Team wanted it all.
Going to the nationals in 1985 and up and blowing the competition right off the track didn't satisfy coach Sherman
Hart. Instead of just sitting back on his laurels after bringing national recognition to the Women's Track Team, Hart
set the lofty goal for his "Lady Beacons" of winning both the Indoor and Outdoor ECAC Division III
Championships, and the NCAA National Indoor and Outdoor Division III Championships, no less. No, he doesn't ask
for much. Never being ones to shrink from a challenge, the women went out and did just that. Not bad for what is
basically a home-grown metropolitan Boston crew.
Ann Brissett, co-captain of team, had an absolutely brilliant senior year, setting high marks in the hurdles, the
triple jump, and leading the relay team to big wins. One of Brissett's accomplishments this year was at the Greater
Boston Track Club Invitational, where she set a record in the triple jump of 34'7Vs", breaking the previous record by
2'21f4". She didn't stop there, for later at Bates College she jumped 37'11", beating her closest rival by 116' feet.
Brisset's banner year led to her being named Division III Female Athlete of the Year by the New England College
Athletic Conference QNECACJ.
Brissett wasn't the only one to get recognition this year, Along with Brissett, Genesia Eddins, Diane Weeder,
Mortonda Durant, Michelle Williams, Debbie d'Entremont, Darrelle Boyd, Iackie Iames, Sonji Larts, and Georgia
Traficante all became All-Americans.
"We grew up this year," says Hart. "We're a year older and wiser . . . tNow everybodyj knows we are a force to be
reckoned with. . .and we'll have to be ready."

Gary Doak and Bobby Orr
Hockey Hall of Famer Bobby Orr, a Boston Bruins
Stanley Cup teammate of yesteryear, was on hand for the
coaching debut of former teammate and longtime friend
Gary Doak at Clark Athletic Center. Doak's
UMass!Boston varsity lost 4-3 in overtime in a spirited
game against St. Anselms.
Orr was mobbed by fans-including a few hundred
Quincy and Dorchester youth hockey participants during
his extended visit. He watched the game flanked by
Chancellor Robert A. Corrigan and Mrs. Judy Doak.
"Doakie's team played well for an opening game," said
Orr. "The thing I liked is that the kids didn't lose their
poise when they fell behind 2-0 early and then 3-0. They
rallied to tie the game."
Prior to the game Orr gave TV interviews and spent
considerable time mingling with spectators and signing
dozens of autographs. He then took time to chat with
Athletic Director Charlie Titus.
Earlier, Orr purchased a UMassfBoston button and
wore it proudly on the lapel of his topcoat.
"This was fun-let's do it again," said Orr, known
widely for his television commercials for BayBank and
others. "I'd like to get some of the guys together, Cheese
Cgoalie Gerry Cheeversj, Chief Uohn Bucykl and Pie
Uohnny McKenzieJ and come back for another game."
"This was a very positive experience for us," said Ernie
Zimmerman, president, Quincy Youth Hockey Associa-
tion. "For many, it was the first visit to the Harbor
Campus. We saw a good game, but we were sorry UMass
lost. Three of our alumni CKeith Smith, Tom Corliss,
Dennis Crokej are on the team. E

DEE MARIE SULLIVAN
by Kurt David Hogan
When Deen Marie Sullivan, of Milton, Massachusetts
came to UMass! Boston she had no idea how drastically
her life would change forever.
"Coming to UMass !Boston was the best thing I've ever
done for myself, I just love it here!"
I thought she was pouring it on a little thick, but as
Deen went on to speak in her unmistakably angelic
voice, the sincerity and true joy of her UMasslBoston ex-
perience became overwhelming clear.
"This place CUMBJ has really helped me in getting my
act together," she said. "And believe me my act was not
Being an only child and the first in her family to at-
tend college, Deen decided to tackle the responsibility of
putting herself through college.
"Lacking education is really a dangerous thing," she
said. After weighing the pros and cons of her other col-
lege choices Deen decided on joining the UMass! Boston
"I really love the people here," she continued, pausing
with areflective smile, "They're so down to earth and
real, and so incredibly hard working. Unlike the
atmospheres at other universities, UMass! Boston is a
special kind of place where people generally have pretty
tough lives. Most people have to maintain more than one
job, some have marriages, families, kids etc., in addition
to full course loads. It's a real struggle here, and those
who decide to go through with it really want to be here.
I find that people here have a deeper appreciation of
higher education unlike those people that are simply
handed the opportunity."
When she first came to UMB she toyed with the idea
of majoring in Psychology feeling that she fit the mold
of being rational and very straight laced. But after her
first semester she decided to break out of her pre-devel-
oped boundries and listen to her instincts which were
calling her to Art History.
"What I like most about Art History is that it is
analytical and creative like me."
She is quite pleased that she made the decision to
switch into the Art Department, although she candidly
admits she has always felt she was an atypical art stu-
"I just didn't feel like I fit in at first." she explains.
"They're Qother art students, so artsy, flamboyant and
free spirited and I'm not. They must have been saying,
who is this chick from the nursing program, what's she
I couldn't help but laugh as she poked fun of her own
Cshall we sayj puritanical persona. Cutting me off before
I started making nun jokes she went on, "I don't know,
I'm just real conservative, you know, baseball, apple
pie-the whole bit."
Deen admittedly attributes a good deal of her person-
ality to her strict Catholic upbringing.
"I've been in Catholic schools forever," she says. Start-
ing as early as grammar school right through high school
and I wouldn't have done it any other way, after all I
like the way I've turned out," she concluded modestly,
polishing her halo with an embarassed smile. "I think I
have broken out into my own though, thanks to UMass.
A lot of my ideas have changed and grown with me, and
I've met such a diverse group of wonderful people."
As time went on, Deen found a comforting and secure
home in the Art Department, where she became accepted
and welcome and she herself became a part of the diver-
sity that is UMass! Boston.
Deen supports herself while attending UMB by selling
cosmetics at Lord and Taylor department store. She is
also a first rate swimmer and water safety instructor at a
YMCA, teaching everybody from Water Babies to Senior
As for her future after graduation Deen sees herself as
a traveling art sales representative and eventually she
would like to get involved in the advertising industry.
"I just can't see myself sitting behind a desk," she says.
Like alot of us, Deen has spent a great deal of time ask-
ing herself and wondering what she is going to do with
her life, combined with the added pressure of thinking
her family and friends were expecting big things from
her. But she's come to realize that it has only been
herself who has been expecting big things from her.
"At the end of five years of college I'm astonished at
knowing that I actually completed what I never thought
I'd be able to do. It's gone by so awfully fast and I'm
happy and surprised that I not only did it, but that I
enjoyed it so much. And I feel funny saying it, but I'm
kind of proud of myself. I don't know ,... I'm the first in
my family to go through college."
I sensed she felt a particular sadness about leaving
UMB, but I think she knew that her time here had truly
come to an end and it was time now to take what she
had learned about life, about people and about herself
here on the Harbor and never forget. lust as UMB will
never forget her's as well as your presence here.
When I asked Deen what advice she would give an in-
coming freshman standing in those long hideous lines at
registration, she said "I'd say to him or her, it's going to
be long and hard, but it will be fun. And you made a
great decision by choosing UMass! Boston, and I promise
you will not regret it." i

Twenty three year old Shannon Park has lived in the
Un1ted States most of her life although she was born in
Korea Her family moved here when Shannon was a
child and she has lived in Washington D C in Boston
and in Oahu Hawau Her Irish sounding name was g1v
en to her by her father who had been educated in
England and liked the sound of the name Shannon says
that in her childhood before legally changing her
name she felt badly because everyone always
m1spronounced her Korean name So she kept her Kore
an name as her middle name
Shannon transferred to UMass! Boston as a junior after
attending a state university in California and a private
Boston area and was homesick after her parents moved
back to Korea so she decided to loin her brother who
was living in Boston and studylng at BC law school
Originally Shannon had entered UMB s Institute of
Learning and Teaching where she planned to major in
early chlldhood education since she loves children
However after a disappointing experience as a student
teacher in Dorchester schools Shannon changed her
mind She found the high security school depressing and
felt that the children were und1sc1pl1ned and
unmot1vated to learn Although she may try teaching
again in the future Shannon switched to a sociology ma
lor Now she plans to get a Masters in social work from
Simmons College or Boston University
Shannon attends school two days a week and works as
an intern four other days at International Adoptions
Inc This non profit agency deals with children from all
countries' yet Shannon was shocked and saddened at the
large number of Korean children up for adoption. In Ko-
rea she explained children of unwed mothers are social-
ly stigmatized and often the mother has no choice but to
give the child up. Shannon enjoys the research work
which she does at the agency and IS also happy to be
involved with their Korean culture classes The classes
teach adoptive parents about the customs and culture of
Korea and gives the adopted children an opportunity to
SOC18l1Ze with other Koreans Shannon feels that she is
getting a learning experience in her own culture after
living in this country for so long
Shannon has not become involved with campus activ
ltlES because of a lack of time which she regrets In her
spare time she is learning tennis She also enjoys movies
and cooking and going out for a big dinner with friends
IS a Monday night ritual She feels sorry that she did not
have the time to make many friends at school Shannon
atmosphere at UMB makes it difficult to form close
friendships St1ll Shannon says that the diversity of the
student populatron has made her sociology classes more
After graduation Shannon plans to visit Korea and
travel in the Orient for six months with her mother
Shannon recalls that she grew up as a typically
rebellious American teenager and really lost touch with
Korean culture Now she says I feel like I have two
cultures I want to know them both Shannon had al
ways resisted learning Korean customs because she
thought they were old fashioned but now she is open to
exploring her native culture She had also balked at her
familys insistence on higher education but IS happy
now that she finished college
Once she has had the time to enjoy herself and to de
c1de what she wants to do next Shannon thinks that she
will settle in the United States. One of her goals is to
someday establish a large happy family. The more im-
mediate goal is to continue learning and growing in the
intellectual tradition of her family. .

LYNN GRIF F I by Kathy 0 Nell
Lynn Gr1ff1n a senior in the College of Management
has something that many of us would envy a cumulative
average of 3 83 What makes th1s fact more noteworthy IS
that Lynn completed her management degree program
in three and one half years Before coming to UMass!
Boston Lynn attended Framingham State College for a
year and had some transfer credits Even so Lynn has
maxntained a schedule load of five or SIX courses in each
semester here which IS no easy task She claims that she
owes a lot to her parents for their encouragement and
support of her efforts
Lynn decided to transfer from Framingham State
because she found lt difficult to adjust to dorm l1fe Al
though she liked meeting all of the new people in the
co ed dorm the constant party atmosphere wore pretty
thin after a year and Lynn found it hard to study Sefl
ously Also she felt Framingham State was less than
challenging academically and the professors there had
l1ttle time for students
ing to either Boston University or Boston College Both
schools are more well known and have more prestigious
lmages Lynn already knew that she wanted to major in
Business Management and friends highly recommended
the College of Management at UMB After a thorough
1nvest1gat1on of the other two schools Lynn felt that
they had no more to offer 1n the long run than UMass
Initially her full time course schedule in the College
of Management was tough to adyust to Lynn found that
unlike many of her working friends she had little time
or money available for soc1a11z1ng Lynn was determlned
to commxt herself to school yet recalls that it was some
times frustrating to juggle school work and social com
Since she had taken a secretarial course in high school
Lynn found that working temporary jobs through the
Office Spec1al1st agency f1t in well with her schedule
Durmg the regular semester she worked occasional
Fridays or weekends but during vacations and the sum
mer Lynn took on longer assignments As a result she
has been exposed to a wide variety of local companies
and has gained much insight 1nto career opportunities
In the Fall of 1985 Lynn held an internship at the Ford
Model Agency in Boston as a Marketing Strategy
Planner Smce marketing IS Lynn s concentration the
internship was a very good learning experience
Although she IS a member of the American Marketing
Association on campus Lynn admits that she has not had
very much time to participate in campus activities Still
Lynn has been a peer academic advisor 1n CM during the
last four pre registration periods
Overall Lynn feels that her experience at UMass has
been a very positive one She says that she found most
professors to be very helpful and concerned about the
students Lynn remarked that a UMB education like any
other All depends on what you put into it I have taken
school very seriously Last October Lynn was happy
the Board of Regents awarded her a Senior Year Tu1t1on
Waiver for excellent academic achievement Only s1x
seniors receive the award annually Lynn felt qulte
Lynn enyoys swimming and the other summer sports
This summer f1986J she will be busy preparing for her
wedding Wh1Ch w1ll take place 1n September Shortly
afterward Lynn will get to fulfill her travel ambition
which she has not been able to do while attendmg
school She and her fiance plan to honeymoon in Ha
When asked to describe herself Lynn said she was
very amb1t1ous and success oriented Her ultimate goal IS
to open her own novelty retail busmess In the mean
time Lynn feels that a career 1n sales or retailing will
provide her with the working knowledge that she will
need to ach1eve her own goals What she fears most 1S
the idea of settling into a routine unchalleng1ng yob To
prevent that Lynn plans to always keep learning and
taking on new challenges

Unlike many students who are graduating 1n May
sen1or Chang Lee IS in no hurry to leave the classroom
beh1nd Chang IS an economics major and he feels that
his educat1on wont be complete unt1l he has earned a
Ph D 1n International Economics That degree Chang es
t1mates w1ll take another five years of study but he has
always known that a Ph D was his goal Chang has been
accepted to programs at Penn State Georgetown and the
Un1vers1ty of Virginia but has not decided which school

Chang and his wife Hwa Yeong came to this country
1n 1980 from Seoul South Korea Before attendmg
UMass!Boston Chang studied at Ph1ll1ps Ir College 1n
Georgia but he was really eager to get into school in the
Boston area He always felt that Boston offered more

IUYCE L. I-IYSLIP by Kathy 0'Nei1
Ioyce Hyslip of Dorchester is a somewhat atypical stu-
dent for UMass! Boston. She came to UMB directly from
high school, and proceeded directly through four years.
The more typical student has usually attended other
schools, or worked for a few years, before coming to this
school. Ioyce says that after graduating from Monsignor
Ryan Memorial High School, she was eager and motivat-
ed to attend college.
Joyce cites two major reasons for deciding to attend
UMB. One reason is that the Harbor Campus is very
handy to her home and work. In the good weather, Ioyce
is able to save parking fees by riding her bicycle to
school. Another reason, of course, is the low tuition at
UMass. Looking back, Ioyce says that she is very satisfied
with her decision. Unlike some of her friends at
Northeastern, Suffolk and other private schools, Ioyce is
not in debt with student loans. In addition, she feels that
she has gotten more in-depth and varied courses through
our College of Management that have friends who
studied Business Management at other schools.
Ioyce claims that she really enjoyed the challenge' of
her Marketing concentration courses, and that her favor-
ite course was Introduction to Computers in Business. In
all of her four years, Ioyce reports that she's only had
one major hassle as a student. In her final semester, she
wasn't scheduled for two courses which she really need-
ed to graduate. Her initial efforts to correct the situation
were frustrated by red tape and bureaucratic indiffer-
ence, but she finally got the courses that she needed.
Ioyce works as a data entry operator at St. Margaret's
Hospital in Dorchester. She works about 24 hours per
week, but they allow her a very flexible schedule. Dur-
ing her vacations, Ioyce is able to earn extra money by
From June until August, 1986, Ioyce will work as an
intern at Walt Disneyworld in Florida. Joyce heard of
this exciting opportunity through 'the UMB Co-op
program, and decided to go for it. College students from
all over the country, with various majors and back-
grounds, participate in the internship. The students live
on the grounds of Disneyworld, and work in their own
areas of interest, such as sales, transportation, or enter-
tainment. Once a week, all the students attend a training
seminar, and they have two days off each week for sight-
seeing or leisure. Ioyce is looking forward to the
internship, which she is doing for experience and pay,
rather than for credits. She hopes to work as a sales
hostess, since she is a marketing major. In addition to
having a fun internship, Ioyce believes that the experi-
ence will build up her resume, since Disneyworld is
known to be a progressive, training-oriented employer.
On campus, Ioyce is a member of the American Mar-
keting Association. She was a cheerleader for the UMB
basketball team during their 1982-84 seasons. Now, Ioyce
coaches cheerleaders at her former high school. Her oth-
er hobbies include skiing, bicycling and travel. Virginia
Beach is a favorite travel destination for Ioyce, she
vacationed there three times in 1985. Someday in the
not-too-distant future, she hopes to take a trip to
Ioyce doesn't want to waste any time in going for her
MBA. She has applied to Suffolk University for the Fall
of 1986 semester. Although she plans to attend school
full-time, Ioyce would like to begin a career in sales
soon, since it is a good foundation for a career in market-
ing or advertising. Always on the lookout for opportuni-
ties, when she sees a goal, Ioyce goes after it. "I thrive on
a challengep if something is too easy to get, I lose inter-
est." she remarked. That surely sounds like a winning at-

One of the first impressions you will no doubt get
upon first meeting with Sonia Perez, especially if she is
with her sisters Lotus and Ellie, is that hers is a very
tight-knit family. Many who meet Sonia, Lotus, and Ellie
for the first time think they are triplets. But they aren't,
and upon closer inspection, you'll see that while there is
a strong family resemblance, each is a very individual
young woman with her own distinct personality.
Family is very important to Sonia. In times of stress
and pain, it was her family who was always there for
her. Being as close to her family as she is, Sonia is also
very protective of them. As this interview was being
conducted, Sonia was very reluctant to talk about her
"That part of my life is very personal," she said.
Her visitor gently prods her a little. After a few cau-
tious moments, she began to relax.
Sonia was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1964.
She was still a baby when she and her family returned to
Boston after what turned out to be only a brief stay in
L.A., moving there before Sonia was born. After a few
years went by, Sonia's parents had a parting of the ways
for good, leaving Sonia's mother to raise all three girls
and a boy, Micheal, all by herself. That's not an easy
task, raising four children, keeping a roof over their
heads, and keeping everyone fed all by your lonesome. It
takes a special person to do all that and keep the family
"My mother," Sonia says, "is a very strong person.
CAfter my father lefty my mother picked up the pieces
and held the family together. My sisters have always
been my best friends."
Sonia rarely had the time to think about what kind of
a career choice she wanted when she was growing up.
That started to change when she reached high school, as
the field of law began to look appealing.
Law continued to look attractive to Sonia when she
started to think about college. Having been involved in
campus activities in high school such as the French Club,
the yearbook committee, and others, Sonia excelled in
working with a variety of people.
Coming to UMass! Boston only increased Sonia's ener-
gy. UMB was not Sonia's first choice, and when she did
come here, she only planned to stay one year. But then
some things started to happen. Not only did she take
courses at the Harbor Campus, but downtown at the Col-
lege of Public and Community Service QCPCSJ as well.
CPCS in particular made a strong impression on Sonia,
since many of the other students she met there were con-
siderably older than she was, and she found it easy to'
talk to them.
"When I first started class fat CPCSJ," she recalls, "I
was 16 years old. I think it was easy for them to talk to
me because it was like, I was their kid they would
give me advice . . . and I like listening to what other peo-
ple have to say on careers and things."
Another thing that made a strong impression on Sonia
were the professors. She was amazed at how the
professors showed so much interest in the students.
"One time this professor invited a group of us over his
house where he showed us videos Con what we were
studying in classJ," she recalls. "that means a lot to me
. . . even in my classes downtown, we call our professors
by their first name. It feels like we have a mutual
respect. It's like they're saying, 'I'm available to help
out.' That makes a big difference. I don't see that in a lot
of other schools."
Sonia began to enjoy her term at UMass! Boston so
much, she decided to stay and become more involved in
campus life. She joined the then-Student Activities Com-
mittee QSACD which oversaw the Student Activities trust
fund. Sonia worked for the committee for several years,
but by far her proudest accomplishment was engineering
the first major concert ever to happen at UMass! Boston,
one which brought the bands Pyschedelic Furs .and Face
to Face to the UMB Clark Center.
Doing anything for the first time on a big scale such as
a concert with a major band would naturally expect to be
difficult. Of course, almost all the students were for the
ideap some members of the staff at UMB weren't so sure.
At the time of the concert's planning in the spring of
1984, Sonia was chairperson of the SAC Cultural Events
Committee. When she got the idea for a concert, she
decided to consult some folks who had some experience
in putting on concerts. So Sonia and a few other SAC
members took a drive out to our sister school to the west,
UMasslAmherst, to consult with their student Senate on
how to go about it.
The meeting worked out very well. The Amherst peo-
ple encouraged Sonia to pursue the idea, and gave some
sound advice and pointers on what needs to be done to
put on a show of this magnitude. When Sonia got back
to UMB, she approached the administration about the
idea. Surprisingly, many of them were for it. Use of the
UMB facilities would prove to be a problem. But the
biggest obstacle was trying to figure out where to stage
Meetings, meetings, meetings. Sonia went to, and
chaired many of, the meetings that tried to iron this
problem out. After all was said and done, there was only
one conclusion, and that was the Clark gym. It was the-

T, I, A by Mark Iarret Chavous
Thomas Iefferson Anderson III has shown he has the
midas touch with his pen. One of the most prolific
writers UMass! Boston has ever produced, his poetry has
appeared in I-Iowth Castle, The Mass Media, and the 1985
edition of The Beacon. He has made a name for himself in
the arts community in the Boston area, having been
invited to the Cronkite graduate center and Grolier
Bookstore, a store well known in the arts community for
selling 'poetry exclusively. His writings have touched
many with their grace, elegance, and power.
TJ. has traveled many a road to get to where he is to-
day. Born in 1958 in Langston Oklahoma, he left there at
the age of two with his family for Atlanta. His father is a
professor which explains why they moved around alot
during T.I.'s early years. T.I.'s father found a home at
Tufts University and the family has been living in
Winchester, Mass. ever since.
Growing up provided few dull moments for T.I. An art
major in high school, he continued to pursue study art
when he entered Fisk University in Nashville, Tennes-
see. Once he got there, however, he got interested in re-
ligion and became an orthodox Muslim. j
"What I really admired about the Islamic religion was
the Islamic religion was the feeling of brotherhood," he
recalls. "Blacks, Whites no matter what color, there
was always a feeling of brotherhood."
TJ. had always had an interest in the Islamic religion.
When his cousin converted to Islam and began sending
him Moslem literature, T.I. decided to take the plunge.
But once you cross the line, the party's over. No drink-
ing. No dating. The party is over. Unfortunately for for-
tunately, depending on your point of viewj T.I. was at an
age C18-191 where he was beginning to take an avid in-
terest in both these things, particularly the latter.
So he rebelled.
"I was dating this woman secretly," he recalls. He felt
like he was living a double life, juggling his schoolwork
at Fisk and commitment to Islam along with a relation-
ship he was not supposed to have. It began to take its toll
on his effort in class, and soon, after only a short time at
Fisk, he was put on academic probation and later with-
After leaving Fisk, T.I. returned to Winchester briefly
and attended Boston State College for a semester at the
urging of his parents. He didn't care for it. Discouraged,
he told his folks he was going on a camping trip for a
week and didn't return for a year and a half. TJ. simply
vanished, not revealing his whereabouts to anyone.
What happened was that he returned to Nashville and
rejoined his Muslim group and began touring
throughout the U.S. and Canada preaching the word of
Islam. When they came back to Nashville, TJ. managed
to land a job at a Greyhound bus station. Life in the fast
lane at a Greyhound bus station wasn't quite fast enough
for him, and TJ. felt he needed something a little more
invigorating. The opportunity came when someone from
Nashville's red light district approached him to do some
work. Fascinated, T.I. accepted the offer, and worked as
an "agent" for this man for a period of six months.
Things came to an abrupt halt when T.I. got wind of a
plot against his boss which was too hot to handle.
Wanting absolutely no part of it, T.I. calmly collected his
things and left Nashville for good.
"I realize how dangerous it was now," he says. "but it
was a good learning experience, and I learned a lot about
TJ. describes his period in Nashville as one of rebel-
lion. He rebelled against many traditional beliefs and
ideas, his former religion, and his upbringing. Coming
to Fisk, a predominantly black university, from the
predominantly white high school in middle class
Winchester can be a rough transition to make.
"When I went high school" T.I. recalls, "there were
only ten black kids. fAt Fisk, I wonderedj how do I fit
He began hanging out in Nashville. This didn't help
his image with his peers at Fisk, a student body whom
T.I. describes as being "elite blacks," who taunted him.
For rubbing elbows with the city folks, other students
started calling him "Nashville Nigger." Okay, Fine. TJ.
was still going to hang out there, because he liked it.
When T.I. came back to Boston, he worked for a while
and considered what to do next. Then he met a woman
and they began to see each other regularly. Before you
knew it fthree months, to be exactj, T.I. was married.
Add to that, he joined the Air Force and assigned to
In the Air Force, T.I.'s duties included supervising the
war games for his outfit and chasing down people who
went AWOL. He also found time to coach little league
soccer on the side. But more than anything else, T.I. be-
gan to feel the itch to write.
As it turned out, his job allowed T.I. plenty of time to
practice. He also took some courses, and his teachers
were impressed enough to encourage him further. He
enjoyed writing so much that he joined the California
Confederation of the Arts and got some recognition for
All this activity had a price, however. His marriage
started to sour.
"We fstartedj having communication problems," says
T.I. "I was brought up in a whole different environment
was than she was.
"When you have somebody who's a civilian, and
doesn't have to answer to the way the military says, it's
like, why don't you sleep late? I have to say, No, I gotta
go into work. She didn't understand that . . . it was just a
case of marrying the wrong person."
Divorce soon became a hard reality for TJ.
"We're still friends," he maintains.
Once again, TJ. returned to Boston and Winchester
and to his family. Writing had, by this time, consumed
TJ. to the point where he looked forward to returning to
school with enthusiastic vigor. He found out that a fa-
vorite teacher at Boston State College, Lloyd Schwartz,
had stayed on during the merger with UMass! Boston.
UMB turned out to be the only place TJ. applied to.
At this point a significant question arises. If TJ.'s fa-
ther is a professor at Tufts University then it follows that
TJ. would get a tuition waiver. So why not go to Tufts?
"Basically . . . I felt I would be living on fmy father'sJ
reputation. I wanted to make it on my own."
W "Yeah, I guess," he laughs.
TJ. had the impression that UMass! Boston would be
relatively easy to go through and not too demanding.
And why not? After all, this was just a state school in a
town of big name private school giants Cincluding Tuftsj
recognized world wide for academic excellence.
That was a costly mistake. '
"And my grades the first semester showed it," he says,
meekly. A state university does not a free ride make, and
TJ. soon got down to business. He took many writing
courses and made many friends. They would often get
together and study and socialize.
TJ. talked about what he likes about UMass! Boston.
"What I like about UMass," he begins, "is the fhigher
age! of the students. The diversity. The- different cultural
backgrounds and experience. I never found that at Fisk. I
don't remember it at Boston State College. CThe diversityj
is what attracts me to this school."
TJ. also likes the fact that virtually all of the professors
"You feel free to ask questions." he says. "You can talk
to them on a one to one level. That was unusual for me,
coming from the military, and it was hard for me to get
use to. I can feel free to call them and discuss anything."
Lloyd Schwartz and Martha Collins have been two
such professors for TJ. It always helps to have good criti-
cism, and Schwartz and Collins have given plenty of
sound, thoughtful, and encouraging suggestions. This
assistance has helped get TJ. into graduate school at the
University of Michigan, and he is grateful to them for
Graduating in the 80's, fraught with 70's me-
generation rejects who have turned into full-fledged
yuppies, usually makes for a rather one dimensional
outlook on the future. TJ. was asked what concerns and

issues the new generation must be ready to deal with.

of the world and the unfortunate people. The poor. The
hungry. There seems to continue to be a separation of
"I was talking with this girl from Ethiopia. Where she
came from, people were dragged out on the street and

"This is one of the unique things about UMassl Boston.
We have fthe experience ofj many immigrants here
ffrom whom we can learn.J"
TJ. can look forward to a bright future. With graduate
school at Michigan ahead, and more writing, he would
eventually like to teach flike dadj. He really feels
UMass! Boston has helped him discover who he is and
what he wants to be. And TJ. wants to write. Wherever

Naturally, Athletic Director Charles Titus was less than
thrilled with the idea. Neither were the many people
who would be called upon to prepare the gym and help
construct the stage. Enter Vice Chancellor for Student
Affairs, Charles Desmond.
"He fDesmondQ was the key," Sonia says gratefully.

proud memories. Dealing with people, taking on obsta-
:les and overcoming them, reaching agreements, all that
Jnly fueled Sonia's ambition to become a lawyer. She

Linda Harris 9
Linda Harrington, grew up in Quincy, MA, and was
the only child in her family. "I was terribly intraverted
and fearful of the world. Although my parents sheltered
me, I did manage to be active in the school Glee Club,
Choir, and played the clarinet in the school band. I spent
my non-school activities as a volunteer at the Quincy
Hospital. I wanted to become a doctor, because several
members of my family were, but being a woman doctor
was discouraged by my family, and society in general.
My alternative was nursing."
Linda's parents enrolled her in the Woodward School
for Girls, a private school, in hopes that she might be-
come more studious. "I just wasn't interested or motivat-
ed enough to pull my grades up, so I couldn't attend
nursing school after graduating from high school.
However, I enrolled at Northeastern University for
Radiologic Technology, to be trained as an X-ray
Technician." In 1971, Linda completed the course and
was now a certified X-ray Technician with a national
"During that time, I was a heavy drinker, but drinking
to excess and experimenting with drugs was not out of
the norm during the '60's and early '70's, so I didn't
think of the situation as anything to worry about," Linda
says, looking back.
A year after college, in 1972, Linda got married, and
moved to Scituate, MA., and was employed at Santa Ma-
ria Hospital, in Cambridge, as an X-ray Technician. She
and her husband drank heavily and experimented with
various drugs. "I didn't think anything was wrong with
me because I could hold down a job, and no one knew I
was drinking. I couldn't be an alcoholic because I could
Linda saw an opportunity to make further advance-
ment in position and salary as the department head of
Radiology at the Massachusetts School for the Handi-
capped, in Canton, Ma. Two years later, in 1978, she di-
vorced her husband because of the physical and mental
.abuse he was inflicting upon her.
Linda said she'd never forget the day the divorce was
ggranted because it was the day of the "infamous blizzard
wof '78". She felt so relieved about the divorce that she
lstayed drunk for the next three days. The illness that fol-
llowed in addition to car problems caused Linda to leave
lher job due to a poor attendance record.
After leaving her job, Linda felt she "needed a change
land moved to Florida. I thought this move would solve
lmy problems, especially with drinking." Moving to
Florida, was not the answer for Linda's drinking
problem. She later found out that she had taken her
addictions with her.
In 1980, Linda had become seriously ill and was hospi-
talized in Florida, for liver and kidney damage. "The
doctor told me not to drink", she says. "But after I was
released from the hospital, I had some friends wire me a
ticket back to Quincy, Ma., and stayed with them. This
was a mistake. Because my friends were also heavily ad-
dicted to alcohol and drugs." She couldn't keep a job,
and spent a year living in menial accommodations. "I
couldn't ask my family for help." she recalls. "Because
they couldn't cope with my abuse of alcohol, but I knew
I needed help. I was sick, tired, afraid, and hopeless. I
didn't want to end up dead with no meaning to my life,
so I put myself in the detoxification center in Dorchester,
and later stayed at the Shepard House for alcoholic wom-
At the Shepard House, Linda began to put her life to-
gether. The first stage of her recovery was to realize that
"alcoholism" is a disease. A disease that can be arrested,
but is never fully curable. "I had to stop drinking and
learn to live in this society without a crutch."
Linda married again in 1981, and in 1982, obtained a
full-time position at Beth Israel Hospital as a staff X-ray
Technician. The salary was not adequate for the standard
of living that she now wanted, so she enrolled at U.
Mass., CPCS, College of Public and Community Service,
in 1983, to obtain a B.A. degree to make further career
changes. "I was scared to death," says Linda, of enrolling
at CPCS, "and it was scary being sober, without a
reinforcement to give me confidence." Linda found five
recovering alcoholic women in her assessment class, and
they grouped together for support. '
She felt a need to do something for alcoholic women
because men have many services. When Linda was
elected to the Student Senate in 1985, she was able to
successfully start the Alcohol Awareness Program at
"I felt very comfortable at CPCS. The college gave me
a sense of empowerment to stand up for myself and my
beliefs, because students were encouraged to use their
life experiences for related course work. I've always
admired and envied people who could speak up for
themselves and take stands on issues."
Linda has taken great pains to get where she is today,
she now has the self-respect that she was lacking for so
long. She believes in herself and she believes in what
she is doing. With all that, there's not much that will
hold Linda Harrington back. I

not a more personable and refreshingly warm brother and sis-
ter duo has UMass Boston enjoyed.
Born in the U.S. and raised in Greece, the two had a lot to
say about UMB and about growing up in two countries. I was
curious to know how they wound up in Greece after leaving
America and what brought them back.
"After the second World War," started Michael, "A lot of
Greeks and other foreigners left their countries for political
and economic reasons to seek a better life in America."
Michael and Stella's parents were no exception. Shortly after
the war they came to America, their mother from Belgium, and
their father from Greece. They met, fell in love and married in
New York, where Michael and Stella, fthe first and second of
three childrenl were born. '
During a span of ten years, Mr. Tsougranis' career as a broad-
caster took him and his family to New Jersey, Connecticut, and
eventually to Chicago. It wasn't long before the sweet memo-
ries of the clear Mediteranean Sea and homesickness for Greece
got the best of him, and he took his growing children and his
wife back to his homeland, so they, too, could learn the magic
of Greece, for which he so desperately longed.
"Michael and I used to fantasize about returning to America
one day," said Stella, with a smile that would melt an iceberg.
"And our mother would keep the memory of America burning
inside us, making us practice and continue to speak English so
we wouldn't forget, and we would maintain our desire to re-
Then, in December of 1981, Michael and Stella received a
special Christmas gift of being allowed to return at last to
America to continue their educations. After an absence of ten
years, their dream had finally come true and they would be
reaquainted with the country they knew only as children, only
now they would be returning as young adults.
"We really suffered from culture shock upon returning, after
being away for so long. The Greek culture is just so different,"
Living the typical life of a UMB student can be a rude awak-
ening into the many responsibilities of adulthood, even for the
native Bostonian. Often students, who have been supported for
most of their lives, are suddenly forced into maintaining an
apartment, a car, a couple of jobs, tuition, food and other bills,
not to mention a full course load.
"We decided on UMass l Boston for a variety of reasons," add-
ed Michael. "For one, it was comforting to know that most oth-
ers also had to work full time while studying. The professors
understand that. Most everyone here is in the same boat.
"'And we really love the multi-ethnic environment here," in-
terjected Stella. "There are so many others from all parts of the
world who face similar adjusting problems."
Stella, who is receiving her degree in psychology, admits
that while in Greece she never had the opportunity to take
many creative or artistic courses. She and her brother Michael
went on to explain that a variety of courses aren't as readily
available as they are in the States, particularly at
UMap I Boston.
"Greek education tends to be more rigid, but here you have
so many creative options available to you," said Stella. "One
day during my junior year I was passing by the theater and
decided to peek in on an acting class. I felt so bad because I had
always wanted to experience the stage, but hadn't. So it struck
me to try it out at least once before I graduate."
Her experiment with acting soon led to two more advanced
acting classes, along with a graphics class, a course in photogra-
phy, and two classes in film and video. Needless to say, her
creative side had been unleashed. It wasn't long after that her
brother Michael fa French lit majorj decided to jump on the
creative bandwagon, getting involved in advertising and film
production. Both now have ambitions to pursue advertising
and mass communications in graduate school.
"I'm so glad I had the opportunity to take all of those
courses," said Stella. "I never would have, had I gone to a uni-
versity in Greece."
Michael couldn't say enough about the professors he has had
here at UMB. Making special mention of the article in TIME
magazine about the quality of UMass!Boston, he commented,
"I really notice that the professors here seem to care deeply
about the education of the students."
I couldn't help but be taken by their sincerity and their will-
ingness to speak so freely. I was equally impressed by the
amount of love and respect the two showed for one another
while they spoke.
I asked them if they found many differences in the people
and lifestyles of America versus those of Greece.
"I absolutely love both countries." Stella volunteered pas-
sionately., "But I feel I'm tied more emotionally with Greece. I
was able to live a more carefree life there. I always had the
security of my home, family and friends."
"It's an entirely different way of life in Greece," added
Michael. "I think Greek people have hotter blood, and are gen-
erally warmer and friendlier."
"Not to say that Greece doesn't have its share of problems,"
interupted Stella. "It does. Boston is so diverse compared to
Greece, with so many different kinds of people that it's really
impossible to generalize. But overall, I'd have to say that the
people we've met, and the friends we've made, have been ex-
tremely nice and supportive."
"Even though we're American citizens", concluded Michael,
"we feel strongly that we're part of both cultures, and it is our
goal for the future to be able to live in both countries."i

There were no real heroes in the Vietnam war, and
those who survived returned home to a nation little in-
terested in their wartime experiences. Few could really
understand their stories of war, and those who did were
found either engaged in emotionally charged debates
against it on university campuses across the country, or
at home arguing in front of television sets that broadcast
nightly the grim horrors of the distant battles. Conse-
quently, many of those who fought in Vietnam exper-
ienced feelings of guilt or shame for having participated
in the war, despite their conscriptiong and with no one to
talk to about these feelings, or of the nightmare that was
Vietnam, many developed career, interpersonal, alcohol
or drug abuse problems that remain with them to this
Since many of these problems arose as a direct conse-
quence of the Vietnam war, there was a push early on
for a federally funded agency like the William Ioiner
Center that could administer education and rehabilita-
tion programs needed by Vietnam Vets. It wasn't until
1982, however, that the Ioiner Center appeared on
The Ioiner center, headed by Kevin Bowen, is the only
program of its kind in New England dealing specifically
with the needs of Vietnam era Veterans, including those
who currently make up one tenth of the student
population at U-Mass Boston, The program was preceded
by the Veterans Affairs Office which had been on
campus since 1973, and the Veterans Upward Bound
Program created in 1979.
The Center was named after William Ioiner, former di-
rector of the Veterans Affair office. His untimely death
from cancer in 1980 at age 38, may have been caused by
his exposure to Agent Orange, with which he had exten-
sive contact during his service in Southeast Asia.
Veterans with a variety of educational backgrounds
receive the academic skills needed for career develop-
ment through the Veterans Upward Bound run by the
Ioiner center. Students in the college prep program take
fourteen hours of college preparatory courses and receive
two hours of group and personal counseling each week.
The one hundred and twenty vets who participate in the
program each year take courses in English, Math, Critical
Thinking, Social Science and Science. Evening college
prep and high school equivalency programs are also
The Veterans Upward Bound program is the most
successful of its kind in the country, with a sixty-four
percent completion rate. Eighty-seven percent of those
students who graduate continue on with their education
in the regular university.
The Veterans Resource Project was introduced by the
Ioiner Center in 1985 to provide academic and guidance
counseling, individual tutoring and other service for vet-
erans working on their college degrees.
While the number of women who take advantage of
the Ioiner Center programs on campus is relatively small,
the center has been a leading advocate of women veter-

ans nationwide, sponsoring programs such as the Na-
tional Women Veterans Conference held in November of
1985. Keynote Speakers included Myra McPherson,
journalist for the Washington Post and author of "Long
Time Passing: Vietnam and The Haunted Generation",
and Wallace Terry, author of "Bloods".
The Ioiner center has also played a major role in study-
ing and addressing the needs of the fastest growing mi-
nority on campus: Vietnam refugees. Approximately four
hundred refugees are currently students at UMass. In ad-
dition to dealing with their studies, they face the diffi-
cult task of adapting to a vastly different American
culture. Few Americans realize the turmoil these stu-
dents faced prior to arriving in the United States, so
Ioiner Center has sponsored a number of presentations
to increase awareness, including a slide-tape presentation
shown in February on the refugee camps in Cambodia
and another in March called "Adjusting to the American
The Center is currently in the process of gathering oral
histories from over sixty UMass Vietnamese students, in
order to provide a permanent record of their experiences
for future generations. It is hoped that another slide-tape
presentation, or publication, will result from this effort.
In 1985, the Massachusetts legislature approved
funding for the Ioiner Center to purchase the nationally
acclaimed television series: "Vietnam: a Television
History", from WGBH, as well as an extraordinary
N ,v 3
archive containing over 500 hours of video-taped
interviews with members of the Vietnamese
Government, former Viet Cong and Vietnamese military
officers. The archive contains extensive war footage,
hundreds of war documents and a collection of photo-
graphs by war photojournalist Francois Sully, making it
the largest collection of Vietnam war-related material in
As the administering agency for the historical material,
the Ioiner center has been thrown into the limelight
nationally, as the primary center for Vietnam studies. To
assist scholars and the general public in accessing this
valuable resource, the Ioiner center has begun catalogu-
ing the collection and will eventually transfer it onto
video tape and disk. Then the irreplacable original films
and other documents will be placed in permanent
storage at the new state archives building, located next to
the harbor campus.
Having received significant increases in funding this
year, the Ioiner Center is currently in the process of im-
plementing a number of new programs.
The creation of a Ioiner Fellowship is in the works.
Ioiner Fellows would conduct research on the effects of
the war in general, including its economic and social
consequences. Another program is being designed to
provide vets with the skills necessary to run their own
For the many thousands of Vietnam veterans living in
the New England region, the William Ioiner center of-

war experiences. It is run by a staff that knows
personally what it was like to be in Vietnam. This gives
them a sensitivity to the issues that others agencies sim-
ply can't provide. The excellent academic program pro-
vides a way to get the education needed in our highly
The William Joiner Center is helping us to appreciate a
group of people long neglected by the general
population: the Vietnam Veteran. Right or wrong, these
men, who fought in their late teens, risked their lives to
defend our foreign policies in a war most of us would
rather forget . . . but we as a nation must not forget the
vets, the refugees, or the horrible images of the Vietnam
war, that we must remember is why the William Ioiner
center exists today. R

The Campu Ministr
Rev. Surah Small and Pr. ferry Hogan
The UMass!Boston community is lucky to have in its
midst an active campus ministry. Father Jerry Hogan and
Reverend Sarah Small, co-directors of the ministry, are
two warm, personable individuals who truly enjoy their
roles within the Ministry.
Reverend Small has been the Protestant minister at
UMB since 1975. In addition, she is the director of
Packard Manse, an ecumenical, community oriented
house in Roxbury. Father Hogan is a resident priest at St.
Augustine's in South Boston, but spends most of his time
jministering to the students of UMB and Emmanuel Col-
leges. Both clergy express an enjoyment for working
jwith teenage and college-age people.
Although she never actually planned to minister to a
student population, Rev. Small feels that is what God
wanted her to do. During the early days of the civil
rights movement, Rev. Small worked for the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference, under the direction of
Dr. Martin Luther King. College students from all over
the country came to North Carolina to assist in enrolling
voters, joining Rev. Small and others in their political ac-
tivism. As a result of sharing in the civil rights move-
ment, Rev. Small became involved with the concerns of
college students, and continued her student ministry
when she came to Boston.
Father Hogan worked with youth groups in two Bos-
ton area parishes, and found that he really enjoyed
organizing and ministering to young people. In 1980,
Cardinal Medeiros asked Fr. Hogan to work full-time
with college students, as a result of his success with
young people. Fr. I-logan's easy-going, humorous attitude
makes him popular with people of all ages.
The Campus Ministry has a small, attractive interfaith
chapel on the third floor of McCormack Hall. Students,
faculty and staff of all faiths are welcome to use the
chapel for prayer meetings, Bible study and individual
prayer. During the regular school year, Masses and pray-
er sessions are held several times a week. On holydays
and holidays, interfaith services are scheduled.
Both Reverend Small and Father Hogan have noticed a
marked upswing in religious and spiritual involvement
among students here and elsewhere. This past year was a
very active one for the ministry, and they are alert to
changing needs in scheduling their programs.
In addition to their religious work, both clergy are
dedicated to community outreach. This past year they
were involved in the Walk for Hunger and Qxfam food
projects, along with students from all over the Boston
area. During the UMB-hosted hunger teleconference,
they solicited donations of groceries from the UMB com-
munity, and were able to collect a lot of food for local
charitable groups. Rev. Small was a featured speaker at
this year's first annual memorial day for Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King, which was a widely attended campus event.
Reverend Small says that she is proud that UMB has
finally been recognized for the fine school that it is. She
has witnessed the positive evolution of the school,
achieved through the dedication of faculty, students and
Father Hogan is also enthusiastic about the school's
present and its future. As he put it, :Lets keep the spirit
going, because we're flying high." I

Accident at Chernobyl
On April 26, 1986, the worst nuclear disaster in history
occurred at the Chernobyl power plant, located in the
Ukraine, 80 miles north of Kiev in the U.S.S.R.
The first hint of the catastrophe came on April 28,
when Swedish officials reported abnormally high levels
of radiation in their country. Prevailing wind patterns
indicated that the source of the radiation was from the
south-the Soviet Union.
Twelve hours later, Soviet officials in Moscow ad-
mitted that there had been an accident at the Chernobyl
power station, that one of the reactors was damaged, and
that "measures fwerel being taken to eliminate the con-
sequences of the accident."
Since the initial details released by Moscow were
sketchy, the growing concern over the extent of the dan-
gerous, airborne radiation quickly transformed into hys-
teria. The New York Post reported Cfalselyj that up to
2,000 people had been killed, and thousands more
critically injured, by either the initial blast or the
subsequent cloud of lethal radiation over the area.
While there was little available information at the
time, satellite photos suggested a nuclear fire burning
out of control, sending a plume of radioactive particles
into the atmosphere.
In Poland, children were administered a potassium io-
dide drink to counter the deadly effects of thyroid irra-
diation, one of the many forms of radiation poisoning.
In Moscow, an American medical team, headed by Dr.
Robert Gale, a UCLA bone-marrow-transplant specialist,
arrived to help provide medical aid to Chernobyl
victims. There Dr. Gale assisted in 19 bone marrow trans-
plants, a risky but lifesaving procedure. He later predict-
ed that as many as 100,000 Soviets would suffer radi-
ation-induced health problems.
It was four months later when the Soviet Union finally
disclosed the true causes of the worst nuclear accident in
history. During a test of the turbine generators powered
by the reactor, operators shut off emergency cooling and
automatic shutdown systems. This resulted in an unsta-
ble reactor. The chemical formation of hydrogen coupled
with the intense heat caused two explosions, blowing the
top off the reactor and starting several fires. The heat
then started a fire in the graphite surrounding the
reactor core, allowing radioactive particles to continually
escape from the damaged reactor.
From April 27 to May 10, military helicopters dropped
5,000 tons of limestone, sand, clay lead and boron onto
the reactor in an effort to stop the heat and radiation
leak. Following that, the Soviets began designing and
building a concrete structure that would permanently
encase the No. 4 reactor, thereby averting further
contamination of the surrounding area and "entombing"
the dangerous reactor for centuries. In addition, cleanup
workers will scrape topsoil within the 18-mile radius
evacuation zone and wash off contaminated buildings,
burying the soil as radioactive waste.
Among the 300 plant workers and firemen most seri-
ously injured by the Chernobyl disaster, 31 have died.
Further, because of contamination, 135,000 residents
evacuated from a 300 square mile area around the power
station will not be allowed to return home for at least
four years. Clearly the medical effects on victims as well
as the overall scientific effects of the accident at
Chernobyl will be in our minds for generations to come.

judge Kelly, UMB ' 3, Return
Iudge Sally Kelly, class of 1973, addressed students and
faculty of UMass!Boston on April 23, 1986. judge Kelly,
33, of Charlestown, is a justice of the Boston Municipal
After graduating with honors in 1973 as a political
science major, Sally Kelly enrolled at Northeastern Uni-
versity Law School.
Before her recent appointment to the judiciary, Sally
Kelly worked as an administrative counsel to
Massachusetts Attorney General Francis Bellotti, and suc-
cessfully argued a case before the U.S. Supreme Court,
resulting in a landmark decision known as the "Mandat-
ed Mental Health Benefit Lawf' This law requires all in-
surance companies to provide minimal coverage for men-
tal health and neonatal care.
"I came to UMass!Boston when it was downtown, and
it was a collection of misfit buildings. The only thing
that really saved me, that kept me there, was the
collection of very dedicated faculty who taught me to
continue to dream." She singled out Professor Mary Ann
Ferguson, who just retired in 1985, as someone who in-
spired her to achieve her goals. Her course, "Images of
Women in Literature," taught her that she could "keep
dreaming" and fulfill her "vision of working as a lawyerl
. . . going out and fighting Kas an advocatej because I feltl
that so many things were unfair." She found that one
"didn't always have to be a refund clerk at Filene's Base-
ment," as she was, but that "you could move beyond
that, both by your own vision of your life and by
working with other people you encountered to be morej
than what the stereotype of women had been for myl
own mother, for example." 1
Judge Kelly's lecture, given in the Small Science
Auditorium, was presented by the Pre-Law Society
lecture series, and was co-sponsored by the Alumni Asso-
ciation and the Law and Iustice Program. 1
Sally Kelly's appearance on campus reflected both the!
growing recognition of successful UMassfBoston gradu-
ates and the positive impact that alumnae can have on
the UMB community. Her success gives us all renewed,
enthusiasm to achieve our goals, and her willingness tol
return to UMB is a reminder of the importance of main-
taining a close relationship with UMass!Boston, through

fThe following was spoken by Deborah Springetti, recipient of
the Iohn F. Kennedy Award for Academic Excellence, at com-
mencement! Ladies 8: Gentlemen, Members of the
Faculty, Administrators, and Friends:
It is a great privilege today to welcome you and to
bring you greetings on behalf of this year's graduating
class. So that you can appreciate and share in our joy at
today's commencement, I would like to tell you some-
thing about who we are, what it has meant to us to come
here, and where our educations will be taking us when
we leave this afternoon.
Diverse people have come to UMass Boston to take ad-
vantage of the opportunities that are here. We have come
together from communities like Cambridge, Weymouth,
Malden, and Dorchester: and from cities such as London,
Lagos, and Caracus.
john F. Kennedy once said that "If . . . History . . .
teaches us anything, it is that man, in his quest for
knowledge and progress, is determined and cannot be
We are serious, energetic people who had the opti-
mism to overcome the difficulties involved in acquiring
a first-rate education. For many of us, those challenges
have been formidable. Two-thirds of us are the first
members of our families to graduate from college. This
means we have already begun to take risks and establish
new traditions-being first is hard.
For students fresh from high school, or new to the
area, UMass can be a lonely place. Old friends and old
ways have been left behind or outgrown. There is little
pressure here to stay in school, and no Student Union for
support. If we had stopped coming to class, few people
would have noticed. Many of us had schedules and
obligations which left scant time for friendships and so-
Most of us had significant responsibilities or distrac-
tions outside of school. We have each had to design our
own unique co-op program which enabled us to support
ourselves, pay our tuition, or care for our children while
hitting the books.
As a result, we have matured quickly and learned to
reach out to one another, but as students we had tossed
our cap over the wall of knowledge and we had no
choice but to follow it. We have not been deterred, in
spite of the many distractions we have encountered
along the way, we expect much of ourselves and of our
UMass, we salute you for fostering a small college
atmosphere at a big university. Support groups, small
classes, and caring professors have created a unique spirit
and warmth, a spirit that makes us all very proud to be
I have talked with many, many seniors in the last few
weeks and their message is thanks: Thanks to the univer-
sity and thanks to the members of the faculty who have
spent so much time encouraging, advising, and
supporting us. This has been a great place to come to
I have talked with students who have come here from
other schools who say without hesitation that
UMassfBoston is the finest educational experience they
have ever had.
We came in an effort to gain control over our lives
and, as we have matured, we have gone beyond this goal
and we have become willing to take risks in our
thoughts and our actions.
We came confidently seeking independence and we
leave recognizing our dependence on others. We tried to
think, we tried to analyze and to question. We tried to
ask the right questions, the questions that would unlock
knowledge and lead to creative solutions. We have tried
to learn the need to make decisions in the face of our
We made a promise to ourselves, to our families, and
to our friends that we would stick with it. We had had
enough of fun and games and working at poor jobs. We
came determined for an education and we have kept that
During our 4 or 5 or more years here we have earned
our degrees one step at a time, inch by inch, one course
on top of another. Through this process we have begun
to develop the patience and self-confidence that will be
the foundation for the rest of our lives.
We leave accepting the challenge to build character
and career one step at a time, and to keep growing
through asking the right questions. There is no limit to
where this can take us, we can be anything we choose.
We can fulfill our dreams.
As graduates, we issue a challenge of our own to the
university that, in order to meet the needs of its citizens,
it continue to grow and to stretch and to reach as it has
taught us to do.
President Kennedy also said that "In a time of
turbulence and change, it is more true than ever that
knowledge is power." Turbulence and change are a part
of our lives. UMasslBoston, as a public university, has
the power and the obligation to continue to be a respect-
ed source of knowledge in the community. That way, all
who have the ability can be empowered with the knowl-
edge necessary to make meaningful contributions to the
lives of others. i

The Shuttle Tragedy
Mark Iarret Chavous
It was just starting to become routine. Manned space
flight, for so long just a dream held by youngsters in the
Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers era, was just beginning to
become as routine as passenger airline flights had be-
come in the late 1930's and 1940's. Not as many people
were watching the launchings and landings. Then
tragedy struck. Seven men and women died as the space
shuttle Challenger burst into a fiery ball of scattering
metal, plastic, and fuel. They were: Ronald E. McNair,
Ellison S. Onizuka, Iudith A. Resnik, Francis Scobee,
Michael I. Smith, Christa McAuliffe, and Gregory B. lar-
The novelty to space travel had been with us for some
time. From the first space mission with john Glenn, to
Apollo 11 on the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz
Aldrin to the Apollo-Soyuz, we were still fascinated by
the fact that men and women were able to climb into the
cockpit of a small craft and pilot themselves beyond
earth's atmosphere and into the heavens. Then the
reality of how risky and dangerous space travel really is
hit hard and without mercy on Ianuary 28, 1986. Mil-
lions viewing on TV, and observers at Cape Canaveral,
including some of the families of the Challenger's crew,
watched in horror as the shuttle exploded suddenly after
a flawless lift-off and splattered in all directions, finally
landing into the ocean. The thing that many feared
would happen sooner or later finally did, and a shocked
nation was left looking at its feet, not really believing
what it had just seen.
What went wrong? Why? And who's fault was it? The-
ories ranged from a defect in the Solid Rocket Boosters
fSRB'sJ to errant radio signals to a premature separation
caused by the pilot. While many people speculated on
the problem, most agreed that the source of the problems
may have lied in the Solid Rocket Boosters. As reported
in the Feb. 10, 1986 issue of Newsweek, an SRB is "a pipe
149 feet and 12 feet in diameter. The SRB casings are
made of 11 steel pieces formed into four barrel-like sec-
tions and bolted together by steel pins. The fuel and
oxidizer, a viscous mixture of aluminum powder, ammo-
nium perchlorate, iron oxide and an epoxy binder, are
poured into the rocket casing. The casing is lined with
an insulation of nitrile burtadiene rubber, which is de-
signed to char very slowly during flight, when the fuel
is expanded, half of the protective insulation should re-
For the most part, the SRB's have worked fine.
However, there had been rumors for a while of a loosen-
ing of quality control. Newsweek reported that in 1983
NASA elected to save weight by saving a fraction of an
inch of the steel casings on the SRB, thereby increasing
the shuttle's payload capacity by a whopping 700
That may have been a mistake. The design of the
shuttle as a whole is far more sophisticated that anything
NASA has ever done. The Apollo rockets were much
more simplified than the five rocket design of F the
Challenger. The tolerances are very tight. Any variation
could make all the difference in the shuttle's stability
and overall safety.
Pictures released by NASA showed ice formations on
the outside of the external fuel tank. It was unseasonably
cold in Cape Canaveral the night before and the
morning of the launch, Florida was going through one of
the worst cold spells ever. People who were at Cape Ca-
naveral were wearing ski caps and down jackets, a
proposterous sight on what was otherwise an ideal,
picture-perfect, sunny day. While NASA cast aside specu-
lation that the ice may have caused some damage, many
wondered, why not delay the launch until the weather
warms up and the ice clears?
One thing that was a concern of many space observers
was NASA's near obsessive drive to cram more payload
capacity into the shuttle. Major modifications included
removing structural stiffeners and stiffener rings, reduc-
ing the width of the fuel tank, and using lighter alloys
in and around the attachments to the SRB. Were lives
placed in peril because NASA wanted to make the
shuttle more attractive to potential clients?
The one possibility that no one felt good talking about
was sabotage. According to Newsweek, the external tanks
and SRB's were lines with explosives so that in the event
the SRB's veered disasterously off course, they could be
exploded by remote control. To ignite the destruct sys-
tem, a radio frequency is sent from the control center to
the electronic mechanism lining the explosives. The code
is top secret, and the code is changed before every
launch. Could someone have cracked the code? NASA
and most experts didn't give the idea much credit, but
the fact that the Challenger had a flawless launch and
then exploded in mid-air left a suspicious cloud hanging
over what was already questionable handling of safety
standards for the craft.
The question that remained of course was what to do
with the shuttle program. Should the program continue?
Is it really necessary? Is it worth the cost in human life?
NASA has had to deal with these questions once be-
fore. On Ianuary 27, 1967, astronauts Virgil Grissom, Ed-
ward H. White II, and Roger B. Chaffee, almost 19 years
ago to the day, all were sitting inside the Apollo 7
capsule? on the launch pad. As reported in George
Carpozi's A Tribute To America's Space Heroes, things were
going fine until one of the astronauts cried out, "There's
a fire in here!" Before anyone could life a finger, the
rocket had exploded. Unable to unlatch the escape doors,
Grissom, White, and Chaffee, all lost their lives. Astro-
naut Virgil Grissom, before he died in the capsule, had
this to say about danger in the space program:
"There is always the possibility that you can have a
catastrophic failure . . . This can happen on any flight.
It can on the last one as well as the first one. So you
just plan as best you can to take care of all these
eventualities . . . "
NASA felt the same way. The death of Grissom, White
and Chaffee shocked the nation. But the Apollo program
surged on, NASA being determined to fulfill president
Iohn F. Kennedy's prophecy of man landing on the
moon before the end of the 1960's.
Should we continue the shuttle program? Can we
make regular space travel feasible? Is it worth the risk?
Can we afford to lose more lives? The only true answer
to that question lies in the hearts of the men and women
who are behind the making of the shuttle, and the men
and women who dare to explore the vast environment
beyond earth's atmosphere. Many people lost their lives
exploring the new frontier of this country hundreds of
years ago. If it hadn't been for those determined pio-
neers, we wouldn't be here today. The risk was always
there of unknown dangers, but it didn't stop them. To-
day we are far more aware of the dangers that come be-
fore us. With the shuttle program, America must decide
that it cannot only give lip service acknowledging the
possibility of danger, but accept catastrophe and deal
with it on a one to one basis. After the dead are mourned
and buried, after the system is overhauled and reorga-
nized, after the reporters have written their stories, we
still have the challenge of the "Final Frontier" waiting to
welcome our discovery.

These seven small American flags suddenly
appeared on a grassy area in front of UMass!
Boston on Morrissey Blvd. shortly after the
shuttle disaster. The flags were placed in an
orderly line where people driving by could see
them.'Nobody knows who put them there, but
there can be no doubt as to the reason. Each
flag represents, and is in honor of, one of the
seven astronauts who died in the space shuttle
explosion. A couple of months later, the flags
vanished as mysteriously as they had appeared.
At this writing, a sign now sits where the flags
once did, announcing that in this same location
a Vietnam war memorial will be built.

A Witness to
It was one of those rare circumstances-millions of
people witnessing an historic event as it was happening.
When the space shuttle Challenger exploded into thou-
sands of fragments over the Atlantic Ocean on January
28th, 1986, hundreds of people saw the disaster first-
hand at Cape Canaveral and millions more watched on
TV. The entire nation was stricken with terror all at the
same time, as if a hugh bolt of lightning had struck, not
leaving a stone unturned.
The horror was so potent because it was so deceiving.
The Challenger took off without a hitch, like so many
before it, dating back not only to the Apollo missions,
but to the Gemini and Mercury space missions. The di-
saster of Apollo 7 on Ianuary 27th, 1967, which killed
astronauts Virgil I. Grissom, Edward H. White and Roger
B. Chaffe, happened on the launch padythe rocket never
left the ground. On the contrary, the Challenger had a
smooth lift-off and it was an awesome sight rising up
into the gorgeous crystal-clear Tuesday blue sky. Then,
quite literally, all hell broke loose.
Whatever the horror was like for the people who
witness the Challenger blowing up, whether at Cape Ca-
naveral or in front of a TV, one's own personal response
does not speak for all the others. We all took the experi-
ence in our own way and dealt with it as best as we
could. But what about the children who witnessed the
tragedy firsthand? What will be the affect on them?
The nation's heart went out to grade school teacher,
Christa McAuliffe, who graduated from Framingham
State College and taught school in New Hampshire. Her
students, in addition to her family, watched as Christa
plummeted to her death. A teacher they had grown to
learn from, admire, respect and love as one of their own
had suddenly been snatched away. Think of it. Her stu-
dents, who at one time were the envy of every other
school child in the country, now were the subjects of
pity from those same young kids.
It would be one thing if Christa had died in some re-
mote fashion such as a car accident, although of course it
would have been just as bad. But Christa the teacher had
become Christa the astronaut, thereby thrusting her into
the spotlight-and thrusting her school and students
into the spotlight-and thus became the focus of nation-
All branches of the media had covered Christa
McAuliffe. She was becoming America's sweetheart.

Black Graduate Night took place this year at the
Westin Hotel on April 27, 1986. This year Black Graduate
Night was acknowledged as the Black Graduate and
Alumni Ball, with emphasis on past and present Black
Graduates as an effective networking tool. This event in-
cluded participation between faculty, students, staff,
members of the Black Caucus, Boston School board com-
mittee and prominent Black Community Leaders.
The two primary Speakers were Shirley Owens Hicks,
vice president of the Boston School Committee and jean
McGuire also a member of' the School Committee. Ms.
Hicks emphasized the necessity into the curriculums for
black young people. Ms. McGuire emphasized the need
for young black people to explore all avenues open to
them to the utmost in order that they may utilize all
their abilities to their ultimate potential as to help them-
selves, the general black population and the future black
generations. Another noted speaker Laval Wilson,
fschool superintendentj stressed the importance of en-
couraging young black people to stay in school and con-
tinue educating themselves in order to provide for a
productive future. Also mentioned was the fact the po-
litical participation amongst black people has declined
excessively since the 60's and the need for these energies
need to be reignited. Gther distinguished guest speakers
included: Chancellor Robert A. Corrigan, Vice-
Chancellor Charles Desmond, Senator Royal Bolling Sr.,
Rep. Sondra Graham, Mel King, Bernard Sneed, and
Iocelind Gant, the Director of Affirmative Action.
The new emphasis including past alumni proved to be
a successful outlet for networking while continuing in
the past tradition of recognizing black excellence at
UMass. Accordingly, Prof. james Blackwell was awarded
with the W.E.B. DuBois award for his service to the com-
munity. Who have contributed outstanding services were
commended for their efforts. Representative Sondra Gra-
ham received the "Woman of the Year" award for her
substantial input instilling'the Institute for the study of
Black culture. Senator Royal Bolling received the "Man
of the Year" award for his substantial contributions to
the black community and for providing funds for the
William Monroe Trotter Institute here at UMass.
The evening proved to be quite a success with an
attendance! rate of over 250 people. This event effectively
united the present Black Graduates with Alumni, faculty
staff students members of the black caucus, prominent
black leaders and members of the school committee. The
4th annual Black Graduate Ball was a great success and
promises to get better every year, as it becomes a firm
and honored UMass! Boston tradition.

UMass X Boston Deans
The Beacon decided to talk with LIMass!Bostoii College
Deans to get their views on LIMB students, on what they have
done to help prepare them for their careers, and what oppor-
tunities studeizts have to look forward to.
lxlarlii Lirri-t Q lmvoiis
The Dean of Students has several purposes. One is an
administrative position. She is administrator of the Stu-
dent Activities Committee, the Child Care Center, Stu-
dent Information Services and Campus Ministry tal-
though they do not need much administration-they
report to a higher power.J Two, she also has anything to
do with student conduct, discipline and student behav-
ior. Three, she tries to explain policies and procedures to
and for students. She tries to provide support. Her goal
is to help students graduate in as short a period of time
as they would like. Dean of Students is a service oriented
When asked what the students have to look forward to
in the "real world" Donahue responded:
"I always felt there should be an arrow stating "real
world" along with the other signs around campus. In ac-
tuality, this is the real world. These students are very
much aware of what the real world is. What they are
looking to do is take the real world and go one step be-
"For me the real world is when you graduate and what
you will do with your academic career skills. Graduation
is the next level of the real world . . . What you will do
with your degree.
"Students here are very successful in their careers, are
more hard working and already know what they have to
do to move ahead. I would like to see students leave here
and continue to appreciate the education they got here
each year, in a different way. I don't necessarily think
justifying through great jobs is the value of a great edu-
cation. When I was in college I majored in History and I
was amazed at how it related to the current world and
how much of it I used.
"Our whole purpose is education and to meet and deal
with people. We bring a collective group of people who
are very bright and have many different goals that
meshes with the whole urban institution. I find that a
fascinating environment. It would be a rare exception
that you would meet these diversified people if you
went to another state college.
"I would like you tthe graduatej to take responsibility
and go back and say you know people who would be
well-served coming here, that this is the right place for
them. There are many people who think that this isn't
the right place for them and that we don't have a
concept of alumni here that Amherst does. If we develop
that, it would be a great resource-it would be one more
concerned voice to the legislature, their own pockets-
scholarships, etc., and support. The experience they have
gone through is unique and it can be very isolating.
"If you've been involved-continue to be involved.
Maintain a relationship with professors and other staff
people you had and you don't want to lose touch with.
Maintain a relationship with the school. It would be
great if you hit the Megabucks and sent some bucks this
way, but we're not asking that-just your presence. It
makes a big difference. Or if you really cared about the
University, be politically involved. We're all voters.
Know your rep. Don't forget us. In more ways than one,
don't forget us.
"Concept of alumni here is weak and it needs to be
built. End of commercial."
When I asked her if she had any advice to students she
"Enjoy life. Decisions you make now will change. The
careers you have chosen will more than likely change,
and rather than worry about it go with the flow. Main-
tain flexibility. It's a search we all go through and it nev-
Dean Richard Freeland has been at UMass!Boston
since 1970. I-Ie has seen UMB evolve from an unknown
infant among giants in Boston's academic community to
an institute that has been recognized as a model for ur-
ban public higher education, having been mentioned in
such revered publications as TIME and The New York
Times. For the last four years, Freeland has served as
Dean of The College of Arts and Sciences, which holds
the highest student enrollment on campus.
Dean Freeland is well aware that UMB doesn't hold
the weight that places such as Harvard, Boston College,
Boston University, and Northeastern do. But he says our
name is starting to get around.
"This is a very good university," Freeland says em-
phatically. "The faculty here are very good people. Any-
one who has been around other institutions knows that.
Unfortunately, there are students here who haven't been
anywhere else, so they don't have anything to compare it
with. I think fthen tend toj have the same attitude fabout
UMass!BostonJ that the general public does."
Freeland feels that the best way for UMassfBoston to
become better known is for the school to get others in-
volved in what we are doing here. Freeland has helped
to develop industrial advisory boards, inviting represen-
tatives from various sectors of the business community,
such as Polaroid, Digital, Mass. General Hospital, and
Rathyeon to come and review curriculum and to get to
know students. The advisory boards actually assist in de-
veloping some programs which will help give students
better direction in their chosen career fields.
This kind of corporate involvement has excellent po-
tential. First, it will get UMass!Boston into the minds of
the people who run the companies. Second, when a
UMB graduate comes looking for a job at a company in-
volved on a UMB advisory board, the employer will be
somewhat familiar with the applicant's education. Third,
if said graduate gets the job and becomes successful in
the company, he or she becomes an important alumni
source for other potential UMB grads to approach for a
future job opportunity. A very idealistic scenario,
admittedly, but the more successful UMB students we
turn out, the better chance of things like this happening.
"CThe greatj advantage of UMassfBoston students,"
says Freeland, "is that they are older and more mature.
One of the things we've done here in the College of Arts
and Sciences tis to startl a number of programs where
students can combine some practical experience with a
liberal arts education.
"Most liberal arts undergraduate programs are totally
academic. They're designed not to be practical. They're
designed to be a general education, then you go to grad-
uate school in business, law, or medicine and that's
where you learn how to do something. One thing we
know is that most of our graduates don't go to graduate
school our students are looking for jobs right away.
We have been trying to make it possible, in the course of
a liberal arts education, to also get some practical experi-
The practicality of Freeland's corporate involvement
approach belies the sharp insight and forsight that
enabled him to come up with this idea. Programs like
these are beginning to distinguish UMass from the other
schools in Boston, to the point where we don't have to
look like we're playing catch up anymore. When com-
panies come to UMB to recruit graduates, it is because of
the things we have to offer as a university and student
body and not because we try to pretend to be something
we're not. As more and more people come to UMass, we
must be ready to prepare them for the competitive world
that awaits them. Dean Freeland is making sure that
liberal arts students aren't getting lost in the shuffle.

Dr. Arnold Weinstein, Dean of the College of
Management, has a strong sense of the needs of today's
business students. He believes that a management educa-
tion must provide not only functional skills, but think-
ing and communicative skills as well. For this reason,
management students at UMass. are required to take
many liberal arts courses in addition to their chosen
management concentrations. The result is that CM
graduates learn the combination of skills, knowledge and
wisdom that are necessary to succeed and advance in
"It is not enough to simply know how to sell a
product, or prepare a budget, or run a computer," asserts
Dean Weinstein. In order to succeed at any job, a person
must be able to get along well and communicate effec-
tively with other people. Logical thinking is also neces-
sary, in order to solve problems and adapt to various job
situations. With this philosophy in mind, many CM
courses emphasize interpersonal, writing and analytical
skills. Dr. Weinstein believes that the fact that most CM
students work an average of twenty five hours per week
is a great addition to their classroom experience, since
such students are already utilizing their practical skills in
the workplace. As a result, UMB management students
are often more fully prepared for their careers than more
traditional college students.
In his two years as Dean, Dr. Weinstein has noticed a
major shift in emphasis from an undergraduate teaching
college to research and master's programs. In the fourth
year of the MBA program, there are two-hundred
enrollees. In addition, approximately 80? of
undergraduate courses and 902' of MBA courses are now
taught by a highly accredited full-time faculty. Among
the faculty, there is an increased outreach towards local
business through research in management issues.
Members of CM consult with the Business Advisory
Board, a group of local business and community leaders
who advise the college on community needs.
Dean Weinstein is optimistic about the future of the
Class of 1986. He does not try to predict one typical ca-
reer path for graduates, since the business world offers a
wide variety of positions, but only a small number of
management trainee programs. As a result, the CM grads
of UMass. are likely to find many options open to them
in all sectors of the workplace.
When asked for a final word of advice for the graduat-
ing class, Dean Weinstein replied, "Keep in mind the
three R's: responsibility, risk, and reward. You have a re-
sponsibility to seek growth and excellence, not only in
your career, but as a citizen. Accept risk as a necessary
part of striving for rewards. If you continually seek
challenges and growth, the personal rewards can be
more satisfying than the financial."
The purpose of the School of Nursing is to prepare stu-
dents for entry level positions in nursing professions.
The goal is to prepare beginning practitioners at the
undergrad level. The School of Nursing is one of the few
professional programs on the University Campus and has
been approved, recently, for a Masters Program.
The program started in 1974 at Boston State College
and joined the University in 1982 with the merger of
Boston State and UMass. "We feel that the University
setting is important for us in terms of professional
growth and opportunities for faculty and students," says
Iudith Lewis. "We feel we've been a benefit to the Uni-
versity and the University tells us they like us-the
The School has Dr. Anne Kibrick as the Dean. She has
two Associate Deans, 13 Iudith Lewis, in charge of faculty
and the curriculum and academic issues and liason for
clinical agencies, and 29 Myron Segelman, in charge of
student affairs. He works mainly with students, gives
students information, advising, and deals with students
The program has 123 credits and is tightly structured
with certain pre-requisite courses before they start-the
courses they take in which the Nursing framework is
built. Iuniors and Seniors have more intensive study that
is built on the underlevel courses. It is a tight
curriculum, but there is a lot they have to learn.
When asked what the students can look forward to in
the "real world" Ms. Lewis responded, "One of the nice
things about the School of Nursing is our students have
spent two days a week for at least two years and for some
students, one day a week sophomore yeartsl, so they
have actually spent time applying what they learned in
the classroom in a clinical setting, that isn't one of the
agencies they might work for. One of the strengths of
our students is that they have seen the real world and
have had a chance to see what the real world is like out
there in nursing. They've worked on real people, in real
hospitals, with people they would be working for and
with after they graduate. I think the health care
profession is changing a lot and I see hospitals, health
care institutions, push toward more cost consciousness so
that I think our students are going to be more prepared.
"We had a contract with a group of clinical agencies at
places like Beth Israel, Brigham and Women, Ashmont
Manner ta nursing home in Dorchesterj, Children's Hos-
pital, a group of registered nurses at Columbia Point
Housing Project, Boston City Hospital, City of Malden
and Arlington, Mass. General, Newton-Wellesley Hospi-
tal and other agencies and hospitals as well. We provide
structure and supervision. Faculty members are responsi-
ble for the student's practices. We work closely with all
"Some of our clinical placements are somewhat tradi-
tional and some are non-traditional, more creative and
innovative, which speaks to both students and our
faculty. As far as we know, we are the only school in the
state that has an arrangement where we work out of the
Council on Aging where we work with elders who are
living in the community. We also teach
interdisciplinaries about health care. It's real exciting in
terms of moving out of just the School of Nursing.
"We need more faculty. We have seen a lot of positive
changes-walls and doors for offices, but resources are
still needed. We are waiting to hear and are preparing
for creditation from the National League of Nursing.
We'll know the results in October. It's been a real busy
year and productive. It is an exciting place to be."
Any advice to students? . . . "They are demanding stu-
dents. They demand quality education and staff. They
demand answers. Basically, I respect that and I respect
them. They don't just sit there and accept everything you
say for face value. I see that as they are here to learn and
not here to just learn facts. They are here to learn how to
learn. I tell them, don't ever accept any fact for face val-
ue, but learn how to find out, because the facts change.
But, once you learn how to find them, it is not what you
learn, but how you learn them.
"Our biggest strength is our students. They really have
a social consciousness. Thing I respect the most about
them is the fact they care about others as much as they
care about themselves. Two important things that struck
me with this years class-at Christmas time they went
around and raised money to buy white socks for the resi-
dents of Pine St. Inn. White socks are a very interesting
gift, because the types of people who are guests at Pine
St. live on the street and a common health problem for
them are foot infections. So each of the students raised
money and gave them white socks.
"The second thing they did was raise money for Bos-
ton City Hospital. There was a horrible spot that was
right off from the emergency room where family
members would wait for those being treated and it was
abominable. It was the most depressing place in the
world. The students wrote the Governor, the Mayor, they
went to the Chancellor, they got money from each other
and the faculty. They had fundraisers. They raised
51500.00 and they completely refurbished this room.
They got furniture that made you feel like you weren't
sitting on a bench in a jail waiting to be tried. They real-
ly made it into a family waiting room.
"These two projects show the social consciousness of
the students and this I really value. Those types of things
show that our students are really something, committed.
It is difficult to teach attention and caring and social re-
sponsibility. These are the strengths of our students that
make us lucky to associate with them. They are real
special. Without the students we wouldn't be here."
Dean james Iennings sits over the College of Public
and Community service at UMass!Boston's Downtown
Campus, UMB's location of origin. CPC5's curriculum re-
volves around public service oriented employment.
Centers such as Community Planning, Criminal Iustice,
Inst. for Government Services, and the Gerentology In-
stitute, all encourage students to pursue careers to serve
the public at large after graduation.
While many of the student body launch right into a
career after school, a large number continue their educa-
tion into graduate school.
"Many of our students continue their work at some of
the most prestigious colleges and Universities in the
country and we're very proud of that," Iennings reports.
"Those who have taken our Legal Education program go
right into law school and get law degrees. I'll match our
fproportionatel graduate school entrees with anyone's."
Iennings reports that many of these schools are im-
pressed with UMB graduates. This is no doubt due to the
fact that UMB grads are much older than most and have
a much firmer grip on what they want.
Does CPCS, as the other colleges at UMass have done,
plan to touch base and maintain contact with some cor-
porations and receive input on what the private sector is
"That's an area we have begun to look into," Iennings
says. "fDespite our public oriented philosophyl many of
our students go to work for such big companies as
Prudential, Iohn Hancock, Bank of Boston, etc. Many of
these companies seem to like our students and they tthe
studentsl are very successful there.
"One thing I can say is our unemployment record is
extremely low. Very few of our graduates don't find
employment. Our grads have been very successful, be-
ginning when this program was started ten years ago,
and now our name is really starting to get around." I

The UMass!Boston Cooperative Education and
Internship Program, acquired through the merger with
Boston State in 1982, gives students "hands on" experi-
ence with the chance to see the practical applications of
their undergraduate education. Since 1982 the number of
UMB students placed in internship or co-op settings has
tripled. During the past 1985-86 academic year, 363 stu-
dents from a variety of undergraduate majors took ad-
vantage of the program.
All students were placed in meaningful positions by
just two professional staffers, Professor Robert P. Dunbar,
program director, and Professor Carole Remick, associate
director. "Our mission is to place students in quality
work assignments where they can gain experience and
learning relative to their field of study," said Professor
Dunbar. "UMass!Boston students are particularly out-
standing. Some of the Greater Boston area companies
have been so impressed by the caliber of the students
from UMass!Boston that they will hire only
UMass!Boston co-ops or interns."
Students from UMB have received high praise from
their employers, who have reported them to be "arduous
workers, highly motivated, with a strong commitment
and a keen sense of responsibility." Such favorable im-
pressions inevitably lead to permanent positions after
graduation. In fact, at least 2598 of Co-op graduates go on
to work with their former Co-op employers in well-paid,
"Typical Co-op students are risk takers," said Professor
Remick. "They are willing to spend an entire semester
working full-time Kas a Co-opl or work for no salary,
part-time Cas an Internb for the purpose of gaining exper-
ience they don't have."
Many of the companies participating in the program
are well-known and established, such as Bank of Boston,
GTE, Honeywell, Kidder, Peabody and the Boston Globe,
to name a few.
"The word is out that we have high quality students
who are hard working and have a little more drive," said

tTl1is article was originally printed in The Mass Media,
Plans for an event to honor Martin Luther King have
been in the works on this campus since November. The
plans were first initiated by jeff Withem and Greg
Moore, representatives of the january 20th Project, an
outreach arm of the Federal Holiday Commission. Moore
and Withem met with students, staff, and administrators,
and helped to plan an event to take place on February 5,
which Moore and Withem would then videotape and lat-
er combine with the videos of other student Martin Lu-
ther King Day celebrations across the country. The
funding for the Project, Withem and Moore said, was
All the University would have to do was provide a
space for the speakers, and advertise the event among its
own students. Vice Chancellor Charles Desmond wasn't
crazy about the idea. He was concerned that a project ini-
tiated in late November could not be adequately
publicized by early February, especially when most of
the intervening time between inception and event would
be taken up by Winter break.
From a tenuous start, the january 20th Project quickly
became more tenuous still when Withem and Moore re-
vealed to the group that had formed to support UMB's
participation in the event that the funding from
Washington, which they had anticipated, was not forth-
coming. The Project, they explained, was still to take
place, but only on campuses where the administration
was willing to pay the event's expenses. Two of the
campuses that had scheduled the event cancelled imme-
diately. At UMB, the event, which had never gotten the
full support of the administration, and had attracted the
interest and imagination of only a handful of students,
looked dead in the water. Most everybody seemed
willing to breathe a sigh of regret and let it go. Most ev-
erybody, that is, except for john Murray and yearbook
editor Mark jarret Chavous.
Chavous and Murray had been fundraising for the
Project even before it was certain the Washington funds
were not coming through. Seeking support for the Feb-
ruary 5 event, the two students approached every admin-
istrator who would meet with them and requested
support for the event in every form they could think of,
including financial. Most administrators were skeptical
at first, particularly Vice Chancellor in charge of Student
Affairs, Charles Desmond, who appeared to be getting
more wary of the project by the day. Desmond's willing-
ness to support the event reached rock bottom when it
became apparent that no finances at all were to be sup-
plied by the project itself. He was reluctant to allocate
University funds for an event that was, by all appear-
ances, unlikely to take place.
Chavous and Murray decided to explore alternative
sources of funding, beginning with the Institute for
Black Students and the Black Student Center, both of
which pledged money. They next approached student
senator Billy Taylor of the Cultural Events Committee.
Taylor promised the project SL000. "We were on a roll,"
Chavous recalls, "and once again we approached Vice
Chancellor Desmond." Once again, Desmond expressed
unwillingness to fund the Project. He was, at this point,
particularly concerned that the filming of the project
would present difficulties. "He was concerned," Chavous
says, "that the january 20th Project would not be able to
supply a quality product."
It was at this point that the students began to consider
the possibility of taking over the technical side of the
Project. An exploration of the possibilities offered on
campus for video reproduction brought them inevitably
to the Media Center on G-I level of Healy Library, and
hence, to Paul Deare, director of The Center of Commu-
nication Media. Deare expressed a surprising degree of
enthusiasm for the project. Chavous feels that Deare was
one of the chief factors in overcoming Vice Chancellor's
objections to the February 5 event. He also felt that
Deare provided Murray and himself with new impetus
and direction at a time when they were feeling discour-
aged. Due to Deare's interest and encouragement, Mur-
ray and Chavous began to feel that they were capable of
taking on the technical arrangements previously to be
undertaken by Moore and Withem. With the Media Cen-
ter supplying the equipment, "we felt we would be able
to guarantee a quality product," Murray said.
With the support of the Media Center, the McCormack
Institute, the Institute for Black Student Studies, and the
Black Student Center, Murray and Chavous once again
approached Desmond. Desmond agreed to meet with
Deare, who discussed at length his belief that the event
could indeed be filmed. Finally, Desmond agreed to
support the Project. He has since pledged money, re-
sources, and used his influence to gain the use of the
Wheatly Auditorium on February 5th. He has offered to
arrange for buses for the fifth graders of the Farragut
School, who have planned to attend the event but are
currently without transportation. He has, most importly,
promised to continue funding the Project through its
completion, thus guaranteeing that the video that will be
made at the February 5 event will not go uncompleted.
"What's making this program work is the cooperation
of all the diverse elements of the University," john Mur-
ray said. Others feel differently. According to Ann
Berrada, it was the work of two students who continued
to hold on to a hope that all others had abandoned that
Mark Iarret Chavous and Iohn Murray
has made the Project a success. "These two guys have
been doing a wonderful job. Without them, the project
would have fallen apart. They've been in our office CPro-
grammingb every day, they've taken work home every
Weekend. Berrada's co-Programmer, Rebecca Garnett,
agrees. "People like that are what make our jobs
worthwhile," said Garnett emphatically.
The second major breakthrough came when the stu-
dents met with Kathleen Foley of the McCormack Insti-
tute. The McCormack Institute proved extremely recep-
tive to the proposal, eventually footing the entire bill for
Martin Luther King III. l
.llizrtiri Lzitlivr king Ill
Martin Luther King III, son of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther
King Ir., appeared at UMassfBoston's Wheatley Auditorium on February 5 as
part of a multi-media celebration to honor King's contribution toward eradi-
cating hunger. Over 250 members of the UMB community attended the event,
which was video-taped by a team of UMB students and staff members. The
original purpose of video taping the event, along with others like it across the
country, was to document the first national celebration of King's birthday.
Whether the UMB videotape will now be used in conjunction with the na-
tional project is undecided, according to event organizers Mark Iarret
Chavous and john Murry.
Chavous and Murry, who worked hard to plan and fund the event, feel that
the Washington-based group that initiated the project have not fulfilled many
of the promises that they made at the outset of planning. The event planners
The Fir t
will meet this week to determine
whether the UMB videotape should
be made available to the national
In spite of the many difficulties
that surrounded the organizing of
the event, and that continue to sur-
round the fate of the videotape, the
event itself is agreed by all to have
been an unqualified success.
Attendance, one of the major con-
cerns of administrators who were
initially reluctant to support the
project, proved problematic only in
that a small number of the hun-
dreds who attended were unable to
even crowd all the way into the
packed auditorium, and were
obliged to listen to the proceedings
from the hallway.
Student Senator Wayne Miller,
who served as moderator for the
event, said, "It was a big successg
you needed a crow bar to get in."
Others who organized or attended
the event expressed similar
Chancellor Corrigan, who was
impressed by the turnout, remarked,
"I think the interest has always
been there, but what made the real
difference is that we had a couple of
students CChavous 8: Murryl who
were very well organized and knew
how to go about the event."
Among those appearing in the
program was an impressive number
of individuals who were actually in-
timate with the late Dr. King, as
well as a class of fifth graders from
the Farragut School who performed
a rap song in honor of Rosa Parks
and rendition of Martin Luther
King Jr's famous "I Have a Dream"
speech. The diversity of age among
the speakers helped to dramatize
the magnitude of King's impact, not
solely on his generation, but on all
One of the most enthusiastically
received speakers was David
Ianiver, a fifth grade student from the Farragut School
who read his essay answering the question, "What can
we do to end world hunger?" David's essay asserted that
the primary reason for hunger in the world is the greed
of those who have more of the world's resources that
they need, but who refuse to share their resources with
those who do not have enough. He singled out both the
United States and the U.S.S.R. as being guilty of this
greedy behavior because they pour money into the arms
race rather than into food for the hungry.
"In our world today," David sadly reported, "more
people are digging graves than wells, more people are
burning bodies than wood."
Also speaking was Professor Wornie Reed, director of
UMB's Institute for the Study of Black Culture. Reed pre-
sented an alarming collection of facts recently compiled
in 30 major American cities, indication that most cities
are not able to meet the emergency provisions are turned
away empty handed than in the previous year. Reed's
statistics indicate that although there is greater public re-
cognition of the problems of homelessness and hunger,
public policy has been increasingly unable to meet the
needs of the poorest segments of society.
Honorable Royal Bolling, Sr., Reverend Sarah Small,
and Reverend Michael Haynes all were able to speak
about personal relationships with King. Each emphasized
different aspects of King's personality, but together, their
accounts composed a moving portrait of a man who will-
ingly sacrificed his own life for the well-being of others.
State Senator Bolling, an old frat brother of King's,
talked about their fraternity days at Boston University.
Bolling noted that he missd King's initiation into the
fraternity, thereby missing an opportunity to spank King
with a paddle. He noted "this is better probably for my
political career, since no one would've voted for me if I'd
done it." Bolling expressed gratitude to King for the
changes he feels have taken place in American society
since the civil rights movement. He notes that Black
youths now have access to many professions that were
previously barred to blacks, "not in the numbers we'd
like to see, but that will come."
Reverend Sarah Small, of UMB's Campus Ministry
Program, discussed the religious aspect of King and the
movement he spearheaded. Small discussed the
unwillingness of today's activists to accept the religious
aspect of King's philosophy.
"The reason we were able to stand up in the south was
because of the Lord," Small stated. "I know a lot of you
don't want to hear it. But you should hear it."
Reverend Small recalled how she came to the Boston
area at King's request, and her subsequent meeting with
Reverend Haynes, another King associate. Of Haynes
and King, Small said, "these two men are so alike, and
yet so different."
Reverend Michael Haynes, Reverend of the Historical
Twelfth Baptist Church, of which King was a member
during his time in Boston, spoke movingly of the
sacrifices that King made. He also spoke of the
importance of the national holiday to Blacks. He
reminisced humorously about his youth in Roxbury and
his reactions to celebrating the holidays of other ethnic
and religious groups without having one that he felt was
specifically his own. "l celebrated St. Patrick's Day
because they told me l ought to celebrate St. Patrick's
Day, so l went along with the program." He also
celebrated Columbus Day and Yom Kippur with his
Martin Luther King Ill delivered a resonant keynote
address, specifically discussing his father's position on
hunger and poverty. He also spoke of his own reactions
to his father's sudden death, and his inability to under-
stand the public reaction to the death, when tremendous
numbers of sympathizers converged on Atlanta. "Every
presidential candidate came," King recalls, and many ce-
lebrities came to the King residence to comfort the chil-
dren personally. King recalls, "I was too young to under-
Overall, the program contained equal portions of lev-
ity, joy and regret for the loss of a great man, and firm
recognition that the struggle goes on.
"I was really glad to see that a lot of people cared
enough to show up," said Student Senator Wayne Miller,
who made the closing remarks. "People need to know
about King the same way we know about Lincoln,
Washington, and Christopher Columbus."l

Free to Remember
Congratulations, graduates! After at least four years,
UMass!Boston is now a memory. You all set out in the
beginning for different reasons, and all of you were less
knowledgable about your particular field of study than
you are today. You've taken your last Red Line journey
to Columbia station Cwhich of course we've all come to
know affectionately as I.F.K.!UMass7 and never again
must you fight Expressway traffic only to find out there
are no parking spaces available. Cexcept at the I.F.K.
library .. . in the rain . . . without an umbrella . . . J The
UMB chapter of our biography has officially ended, and
this yearbook stands as a constant reminder.
None of us are quite the same as we were when we
stood in line during freshman registration or before we
figured out which cafeteria had food that was actually
edible. Nor are we the same as we were before we
figured out the difference between G1 and G2 or before
we realized that it's quicker tand warmeri to walk to
Wheatly hall on the Plaza than to take the catwalk.
We've all grown in some form or fashion. Not to
mention the true meaning of red tape and beaurocratic
B.S. that we've learned
from the administration,
it was often enough to
drive us to drink and
smoke even after the ban
of cigarette sales on
campus and prohibition
hit the pub.
Inspite of it all UMB
has been a home away
from home, a place where
in all of our diversity we
t shared the common de-
nominator of having ex-
perienced this place.
From all walks of life
we've come and gone, sharing however briefly a part of
ourselves and contributing to the schizophrenic person-
ality that is UMassfBoston.
For some UMB has been a place of refuge, of learning
and inspiration. For others it has been a battle ground of
wits and perseverence, a place to test oneself and be test-
ed. For still others UMB offered either a way out of the
inner city or a good reason to come in. And perhaps still
UMB has been simply a stop on the Red Line of our
lives, a place to take time to learn more about ourselves.
I'll always remember the spring afternoons on campus,
sitting in solitude somewhere peaceful near the shore,
listening to the sound of anchored sail boats tossing on
the waves and breathing deep breaths of salty New
England air. I'd sit and watch the orange dome of the
sun sink quietly into the distance, taking with it the
warmth on my face, but leaving a splash of apricot on the
sky to behold.

A View from the 10th floor of the Hvdly Library.
And then there was September when the ocean
seemed grey and days were chilly and short. Painted
seagulls would fly against the wind crying out their
warning of the mysterious fog that would roll in and en-
gulf the harbor like a haunting ghost in the night.
As time goes on the memories of what UMassfBoston
has meant to all of us will fade. So, we've created this
book for you which we hope contains something that
will continue to transcend the barriers of time and allow
you to be free to remember. i
Kurt David Hogan
The Beacon 1986
1986 UMass! Boston
Eye of the Eagl II:
For a Few Thoughts More
I've been a student at UMass!Boston
since 1979 and this place has changed
a great deal during my time here. It
has changed from a red-bricked behe-
moth on a dump site to a proud
insitute of higher learning that shares
space with a monument to one of the
nation's greatest presidents and the
hall where the history of
Massachusetts is stored and nurtured. .
It used to be when someone asked
what school I went to I would whisper
"UMass", without the "Boston", so he
might think of Amherst. I really used
to feel awkward, when a Harvard stu-
dent would ask ,because I expected
Cand in many cases, receivedl a
condescending comment or look. To-
day I say the name "UMass!Boston"
loud, so that there can be no
. . I cj
misunderstanding, and Im very em- Q
phatic with the "Boston" part of the -5 .' .2
name, so as to make a clear distinction '
between us and our sister school to the
west. Not to sound down on UMass!Amherst-quite the
contrary, UMass is UMass is UMass-I just want it to be
crystal clear where it is I go to college.
I have found in the last three years here a new pride
in UMass!Boston. I like what we have done and are do-
ing now. I like the people who come here. But I would
never have known about a lot of things we take so much
pride in if I hadn't gotten involved. That's really difficult
at a commuter school Qlike most of you, I have held
many concurrent jobsj where people come and go to
work between classes. But that's how I found out what
this place is all about. Editing the yearbook for two years
just happened to be my vehicle.
Many times I've heard people complain about this, and
that, and everything else. Few of those particular people
go out and do something about it or try to get people
together and discuss it. What is lacking at UMB, is in-
volvement from a great number of different people and
this cannot continue. People have to get involved. To
make UMass! Boston work for you, you have to make
UMass! Boston work, period.
Getting back to the yearbook, I have tried as hard as I
could to make this book mean something, to be a true
extension of what makes UMB what it is. A yearbook, in
my view, shouldn't be a mess of half-heartedly written
stories with pictures that "look nice." A yearbook is
something that is responsible for preserving memories
CGet lost, you Barbra Streisand fansj and images of your
college career. It will, for many of you, be your only
point of reference on what school was like. To do that
and do it well, we had to reach as high a level of journal-
istic excellence as we were capable of. You may not pick
up this book and read it seriously for ten years, but I
wanted it to be ready for when you do.
Several sections that debuted in the 1985 edition have
returned this year: "Hard to Believe", "Echoes", and "Up
Close And Personal QUCAPJU. "Hard to Believe" are a se-
ries of gags that everyone will appreciate in some way or
another. "Echoes" was expanded this year to include na-
tional issues and not just those particular to UMB. By far
our most attention-getting section, UCAP, had a larger
variety of people than The Beacon '85. A new section, de-
veloped by Kurt Hogan and jennifer Rose, "Best and
Worst Memories" appeared on our senior pages. All of
these were designed to preserve the UMass! Boston ex-
perience for you to open up and refer to from time to
Speaking of memories, my worst memory at UMB is
staying at the train station very late one night in Ianuary
after the buses stopped. The temperature was 150. We
won't talk about wind chill factors. The best memory is
driving down to Connecticut with then Mass Medi?
sports editor John Hawkins in a rented Toyota Celica to
cover the 1985 UMB-Trinity championship basketball
game. Coming back, we drove on every twisty road we
could find, got stuck once, and looked at some of the
brightest stars we'd ever seen. Good ol' Route 202. CSatis-
Thanks: You can see by the masthead a great many peo-
ple have contributed to the making of this.book. Thanks
to the writers, photographers, and editors who have
made The Beacon 1986 a reality. Some, however, deserve
special mention. Thanks to ICP representative john Nel-
son, for being an absolute joy to work with. Those trips
to Maine were truly needed and on behalf of Adam and
Kurt, I thank you and your lovely wife Bonnie. To Kathy
O'Neil, who came late in the run and almost immediate-
ly pumped out story after story, including four UCAPS,
to jennifer Rose, whose tolerant sense of humor and sen-
sitive input gave the staff a much-needed lift, to Kathy
Butler, who came in day after day and did the little
things that need to get done in a big project. Special
thanks to Bill Brett and David Ryan of The Boston Globe,
for contributing the Celtics and Statue of Liberty pic-
turesg special thanks to my great friend Rudy Winston,
who is always there when I need him, to, once again,
Cindy Orlowski and Kim Black of the UMasslAmherst
yearbook Index, for trading stories back and forth. I'll
miss you, to Chris Clifford for having faith in me. I read
through it all, Chris, and thanks for allowing me to sit in
this chair for two years. Special thanks to Charles
Tevnan and my friend Adam Stander for their last-
minute help. Very special thanks to Bob Ciano, Art Di-
rector of LIFE magazine, and Barbara Robinson, also of
LIFE magazine, for allowing me to come to New York
City and visit their offices. Thanks Bob, for your counsel
and benefit of your twenty years plus experience in
publishing that really has added a new visual dimension
to our book. Thank you, Barbara, for your generosity and
kindness, and for allowing me in the doors of the best
magazine published today.
My biggest appreciation must, however, go to Kurt Da-
vid Hogan. As people came and people went twhich
happened a lotl, Kurt was the only one who was with me
the entire year, even staying up with me for nearly three
full days sans sleep in order to meet a deadline tYes,
Kurt, I hear youl. Thank you, my brother, I will always
The UMasslBoston yearbook has had many names,
from Montage to Harbor Light to UMasslBoston 1984. I
changed the name after becoming Editor in 1985 because
these past names, particularly the last one, lacked
meaning a graduate of UMasslBoston could appreciate.
The word "beacon" has several meanings, all having to
do with light. UMasslBoston is a lit beacon, much like
the lamp held by the Statue of Liberty, guiding us to-
ward a bright future, if we accept the challenges. I do. I
believe you do, too. I would like to see this name last
and be identified with the character of UMasslBoston.
The Beacon has become a part of me as it will you, and a
part of this university.
As I said before, I have come to knowlla great many of
you. In my own way, I have come to love you. Best of
luck to all of you. Go forward, but don't'forget. UMB has
been a pair, of your developmen't.,And' that Beacon will
light your-.way-,from now on. I'll:see-you at the reunion
in ten or guys ,better show up. I'll be
watching you. So 'it1ZlQltiil.,1then, take care, as I will, as we
take our leave of UMasSy'BOStonn the meantime, this
eagle is going to soar. Q ' I

You had to fight me to the death, didn't you? Right down to
the last possible minute. That's right, l'm talking directly to
you, yearbook. You never let up, never gave in without a strug-
gle, never let things come together smootlzly. Were you testing

to know whether I was truly committed or not? You should
have known that. The book is here, I hope I've proved my
You fought a good fight lthough I still don't know whyl and
you won many a battle. But you should have known better.
This was a war you could not win. I was too good for you. I
was not going to let you fade into nothingness. I won because I
knew how great a yearbook you could be. I won because I never
lost my will.
Nobody will understand this bit of dialogue between us and

A Grand Lad Turns 100
Some 800 craftsmen, ironworkers, architects and engineers
comprised the Statue of Liberty restoration team. At a cost of
S39 million, Liberty was repaired and restored with the inten-
tion that there would be few visible changes, and that goal was
The statue's outer skin was washed gently to preserve the
legendary green patina. The cracks in Liberty's face and the
hole in her nose were patched. Miss Liberty's old lamp, leaking
badly and considered beyond repair, has been replaced by a
gleaming new beacon coated with 24-carat gold leaf.
Inside, structural repairs to the skeleton designed by
Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, called for the replacement of nearly
all of the 1800 iron bars used to support the statue's skin. The
corroded bars were removed and replaced with custom made
stainless-steel bars-at the rate of only 70 bars per week, to
prevent tearing or deforming the outer skin. The ironworkers
also reinforced the rickety structure supporting Miss Liberty's
upraised arm-although it is not strong enough to safely allow
sightseers to climb up through the arm to the torch, as they
The most obvious change to the Statue of Liberty is within its
154 foot pedestal: a redesigned entry hall includes a large ele-
vator to lift visitors from ground level up to the 168-step spiral
staircase that leads to the famous lookout inside Miss Liberty's
At a dinner party in 1865, near Versailles, France, a law pro-
fessor by the name of Edouard Rene Laboulaye, a man who was
quite taken with the American system of government, spoke
openly of building a monument to America's independence.
His idea was intended to be a united effort between France and
the United States. It has been thought that his idea was actually
a veiled protest against French monarchy.
Funny how a casual conversation can evolve into something
of such historical significance. ln that same room was Frederic
August Bartholdi, a young and promising sculptor. After seeing
the sphinx in Egypt he longed to make a monumental work. A
monument of this magnitude, however, required money-and
lots of it-to support the construction and transportation costs.
At the encouragement of Laboulaye, Bartholdi began a quest to
gather the funds for what would ultimately be a 151 foot, one
inch, icon of liberty.
Raising funds then, as it is now, was an excruciating process.
Bartoldi went all over France and the U.S. "selling" the Statue
of Liberty idea. Since the Statue was to be placed in New York
harbor, many people reacted by charging that the wealthy peo-
ple of New York should pay for it. Bartoldi continued to meet
with only moderate success until the fund raising came to an
important turning point. Pioneering journalist and newspaper
publisher joseph Pulitzer became involved, writing blistering
editorials in favor of the statue. He also mounted a large-scale
fundraising campaign in which he printed the name of every
contributor and their donation amount, no matter how minute,
even if it was a mere two cents. It worked-five months later
Pulitzer proudly announced that enough money had been
raised to place the statue on its pedestal at Bedloe's Island in
New York Harbor.
While all this was going on, Bartoldi continued to build.
Starting the statue in 1875, by 1876 he had the right hand and
torch completed. He then sent it to Philadelphia to be put on
display in order to attract attention. By 1884, the statue stood
tall and complete in Paris. Finally, on October 28, 1886, on a
misty and foggy autumn day, Frederic Auguste Bartoldi re-
leased the French flag from his beloved lady just before Presi-
dent Grover Cleveland finished his introductory speech. While
the celebration on Iuly 4, 1986 was a marvel to the eye,
somehow it just couldn't have been the same as when Lady
Liberty first peered through the fog at her new home.
The famous excerpt from the poem about Lady Liberty, by
Emma Lazarus, is an uncanny simile about the character of
UMass! Boston. President David Knapp made that same obser-
vation in his speech at commencement.
Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to
breathe free. . .
Remember the first few days of each fall semester? Think
back to the people in those long lines at registration. Remem-
ber the way their faces looked, as they turned around and
gazed at the mammouth brick colossus that was about to be-
come a part of their lives for the next several years? While they
couldn't have had the same look of fear of the unknown as the
immigrants who steamed into New York I-Iarbor past the statue
had, nonetheless they did have many of the same questions.
Will I fit in? Can I make this work for me? Have I made the
right choice in coming here?
They too, came here yearning to breathe free, and hoped
UMass! Boston would help them realize their dreams.
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Many schools have returning students. UMB has a large
proportion of them, most of them older adults, more than many
other schools. These folks have come back to start new careers,
leaving the old ones because they left them unfullfilled or
frustrated. Some are old enough to be grandparents. But they
are just as determined, if not more, than the younger students
to achieve their goal in life. T
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the
Now this ordeal is finally over, and hopefully it will pay for
