These were some of the Visible changes implemented by the new President, Donna E. Shalala, to improve campus life and cre- ate a more unified student body. Many felt the University lacked school spirit and that students had an apathetic attitude toward campus activities. For some, the beach, Clubs, and shopping may have taken them away from University life. Regardless of the reasons for little involvement, Shalala wanted to see change on campus in the number of campus activ- ities and student involvement. Changes not only occurred on campus, but nationwide as well. The events of Sept. 11 Changed the way people saw the New York skyline, and also the way people saw the nation.

The long-awaited football game against the University of Washington was postponed to NOV. 24, as the University felt the need to become a part of the relief effort.

Additionally, concerned stu- dents held a candlelight Vigil at the Rock, Where special guest speaker, former Attorney General Janet Reno, addressed the community.

Madonna in South Florida adonna kicked off the year with her sold out Drowned World Tour panning from France, Spain, and Germany to New York, Detroit, and even Miami. Those lucky ticket holders paid top dollar to go, and were not disappointed. Juniors Beth Superfine and James Cohen attended the concert in Miami. Superfine pur- chased her two $200 tickets from America Online to the Aug. 14 show. bl would have bought more tickets, but AOL wouldnit let me? she sadly remarked. It was the best con- cert she had ever been to. The lights, the music, and the costumes were just a few aspects of the show that made it memorable for her. Cohen acquired his tickets from very gen- erous friends. Fortunately, both Cohen and Superfine attended the second scheduled concert, which happened to be Madonnais 43rd Birthday. Cohen remembered the crowd singing happy birthday to Madonna when her husband Guy Ritchie entered the stage with a huge birthday cake. As for the concert itself, James was impressed with Madonna flying over the audi- ence during a song. His favorite song that evening was ttLa Isla Bonita? James felt that there were high spirits in the crowd and ample energy throughout the night. ttThere were many friends of Madonnats there that night; I was just two seats away from Madonnais ex- girlii'iend, Ingrid Cesaresfi Cohen and Superfine were lucky enough to see this legend perform her timeless hits and recent recordings.

However, after the catastrophies in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania, the show was can- celled.

Rescheduling the event to the Los Angeles area seemed to be the perfect solution, but the Recording Academy had only three weeks to reschedule and move the show from Miami to Los Angeles. The Great Western Forum in Inglewood, California was announced as the new venue for the show. The rescheduled Latin Grammy Awards were then cancelled within hours of the terrorist attacks. With so much controversy at hand, the future of the Latin Grammy Awards is uncertain. Will the Academy attempt again to hold the award ceremony in Miami? The world had to wait and see. Student Life 1 14 I Entertainment Music Television, a Leader in Fashion, Music, and Style, Turns 20 1though the Latin Grammies were postponned, there was one cele- bration that everyone could enjoy: MTVls 20th Anniversary. MTV, born Aug. 21, 1981, launched the song thideo Killed the Radio Star? as its premiere Video. Music Videos put a face to music and gave their audience a persona to connect with. Music Videos also changed the faces of artists them- selves. Artists not only had to make good music, but they also had to portray the image of a rock star. MTV not only created celebrities, it created trends for the public. The station became a source of popular phrases that swiftly entered our everyday vocabulary. The term ltbling blingh came from a popular rap song and referred to anything that flashed wealth. The term tlscrubf which defined anyone who didnlt have a job, car or any sign of cash, also derived from a heavily aired video on MTV. These terms, originating as lyrics of contemporary songs, entered mainstream society thanks OVER MTVls 20 YEARS, its logo remained nearly the same with only smalll alterations. to MTVis wide audience and high Viewer- ship. To celebrate their 20 successful years of entertaining the world, MTV ran a spe- cial consisting of the 400 most memorable music videos of all time. A three-hour birthday bash, hosted by popular Video jockey Carson Daly, followed the special. MTV had good reason to rejoice, since the famous network helped pave the way to success for many chart-topping enter- The Real World, a reality based show that aired on MTV for at least ten seasons, was the first of tainers. its kind to bring strangers together in one household, and put their lives in front of cameras. Soon the world saw a monsoon of reality shows as nearly every major network tried to copy the success of MTVis cre- ation. Over the past 20 years, MTV made a definite, long-lasting impact on our gen- eration. The success of the network undoubtedly continued to flourish with its creation of subculture jargon, trend setting images and ground-breaking shows. Student Life I 15 I Entertainment a moving Students moving into the residential colleges anticipate freedom and cozy up to their new home away from home, STORY BY RACHEL LUHTA rom a freshman's perspective, the first week signified a new beginning, a new life away from the confinesicomforts tdepending on who was askedy of home, and a chance to broaden one's horizons academically and socially. The majority of freshmen-- approximately 1,400--arrived promptly by Saturday, August 18, with clothing, appliances, electronic equipment, and family in tow. Residential colleges overflowed with the arrivals, as did the parking lots, manned by security and posted with signs proclaiming time limits for each available space. Resident Assistants planned ahead for the influx. ttWe were prepared, but it still overwhelmed us. Just like when you prepare for a hurricane, you can never be fully ready? said Daniel Song, a junior Walsh Tower RA. Mothers and fathers, siblings, and even grandparents doubled as professional movers, unloading furniture and other personal mementos from vehicles, and hauling them up stairwells or into elevators. After traveling nearly cross-country, some still strained to adjust to Eastern Standard Time and the South Florida humidity. Complimentary bottles of water, ice cream, and Sno- Cones provided movers and students alike with temporary relief from the heat. Lines of four-wheeled carts, stocked past their brims, wound round hallways, through entrance doors, and across sidewalks and streets. F irst, however, check-in was completed at the lobby desk. Each new resident received his or her keys attached to a cloth chain for easy carrying, the keys that would unlock the door to home for the next nine months. Student Life I 17 !

Welcoming b FIRSTWEEK 11 STORY BY RACHEL LUHTA he first hectic days of a freshmanis campus life involved a major concept: adjustment. Within a matter of hours, newcomers faced crammed dorm space, sent worried parents on their way, and were left in a foreign setting with other strangers. Luckily, many found an instant friend in their roommate, and reassurance in activities like Orientation, which helped acquaint them with university life. After multiple phone conversations and emails, roommates greeted each other in person for the first time. Finally, unknown faces could be placed with names and brief descriptions. Some returning students paired up by choice, requesting to live with an old friend. Decorating commenced, along with organizing, as returners offered words of advice and past observations. iiNo matter how much you prepare, you cant be preparedji said sophomore Anthony Pedonesi. Later that Saturday, freshmen located their orientation groups to take part in getting-to-know-you activities designed to encourage interaction with other classmates. Led by a designated orientation assistant, students attended other festivities throughout the weekend, including tCane Kickoffi and various interest sessions. til was really glad I attended the iWe All Bleed Orange and Greeni session, because it made me feel like part of the school? said freshman Gina Griffith. On Aug. 21, President Shalala held a picnic at her Coral Gables estate. There, freshmen had a chance to unwind before their first semester of college began the next day. hlxxYHH 1Jln valhu' 1" YYI'VI 51'3.. ; l .1 152731117! J?

It wound around spinning displays of Sebastian key chains, past the racks of iiMiami Momli shirts, through the greeting cards, and even up the stairs. People stared at the ceiling, checked their watches, then checked their watches again. What was it that they waited so long for? Britney tickets? Free food? Actually, it was that time of year again, the time to purchase textbooks. ilThe book store tends to be well stocked, but the lines are generally terrible. Therels nothing quite like having to buy all these books, then seeing a line stretch all the way upstairs? sophomore Katie Altman said. The busiest days were those right after freshmen received their schedules, and right before classes started. However, the bookstore remained hectic for many days after classes started as well. Students waited a couple weeks to test out classes before they bought the books for them, and those who didnlt, lengthened the return line. iiI went to the bookstore after the first few days of classes to buy my books, and when I walked in, the line was stretching all the way up the stairs. I said, INopeX and didnt go back for another week. The line was still all the way to the back wall. So I said to myself, tOkay, 1,11 wait another week, then buy themf This time I went in, and the line was still going to the back wall, but I had to get in it because I needed my books. I waited for over an hour? said computer science major Rick Pelletier. Student Life I 21 l Buying Books Prices were an issue, just like always. Many tried to save a few dollars by snatching up what few used books there were. However, a majority of classes used the most recent editions of the text, and buying new was required. tII went early to buy my books, because I had to be here for RA training anyway. On the shelf, they had the standard price display: new price and used price, but then, they only offered new books. Why present used prices for books and not offer them? senior Tom OINeill said. Others opted to not purchase the book at all. III was happy I didnt bother to buy the book for my environmental science class, because it turned out the professor didnt even know one was assigned for the course. In my western civilization class, the professor recites right from the book anyway. You can either buy the book and read it, or just go to the lecture; both are equally boringfi public relations major Ryan Jonas said. Book Horizons, the campus bookstores biggest competitor, and a fraction of the size of the on-campus store, was noted for their excellent customer service. iiBuying books at Book Horizons is always much easier. The people are quick and efficient and get you in and out in minutesf sophomore Nicola Serra said. The only apparent downside to the store was its small size, which lessened its ability to stock as much as may have been needed. tiBook Horizons is cheaper, but the selection isnt as good and it has the annoying habit of selling out of that one book you actually need? said Altman. a u w n u I l. 6v SMOKE EMINATING from the World Trade er towers, after they had been hit by two mercial airline jets, blanketed the Manhattan ne, visible to astronauts in space.

On this day, four west coast-bound planes took off from eastern cities, all before 9:00 am. Within one hour, two of these four planes tboth from Bostonl were hijacked and directed towards New York City. One plane crashed into the north tower first, and within a half hour, the other plane crashed into the south tower. The two towers burned and smoked, until suddenly the south tower collapsed to the ground, followed shortly by the north tower, taking an unrecorded number of lives with them. Experts say the towers were built to withstand strong pressures like those of an airplane. However, what actually sent the towers down was not the impact of the planes, but their massive vol- ume of fuel that exploded within the tow- ers. The resulting fires burned at tempera- tures greater than 1,000 degrees, melting the steel of the buildings, and ultimately causing the floors to collapse upon one another. The two other airplanes tone from Newark, NJ, the other from Washington, D.CJ were hijacked as well, one crashing into the Pentagon, destroying the south- western side, and the other into a field in Shanksville, PA, near Pittsburgh. Many speculated that the plane that destroyed the west side of the Pentagon was really headed for the White House, and the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania was headed for Camp David, only 85 miles northwest of the crash site. Some also theorized this plane was shot down by US. F-16 fighter Jets. n her first address to the student body, President Donna Shalala spoke about courage and available resources for students within the University. Shalala informed students that many offices, including the Dean of Students Office and the Counseling Center would be open well beyond regular hours that day, possibly for the entire week. She emphasized that the University should return to ttbusiness as usual" on Wednesday. Classes were can- celled after 1:30 pm, giving students the chance to donate blood at the Wellness Center, watch the news, and get in touch with family members around the world.

Those that Visited New York found the city in IN THE a hopeful state. Streets were lined with remem- brance walls on plywood in memeory of the vic- tims of the attacks. On these walls, people wrote prayers and messages, hung photographs of lost loved ones, and positioned candles and patriotic paraphernalia on the ground in front of the walls. Large spot lights, symbolizing where the towers once stood, illuminated the sky. These lights came on in the evening and remained lit until the morning. Plans for what to do with the site after the clean up ended were yet to be determined.

Between 550-600 people were volved in this event whether as site leaders, volunteers or coor- inators. This year, Chapel said things were done a little differ- ntly.

Barroso said. Overall, the first events of the Homecoming week were quite a success, possibly because of the uniqueness of the year. ttWe had a little more publicity this year because it was our 75th anniversary?

The Homecoming Executive Committee put on a ' spectacular fireworks show despite the rainy weather. ypically, Homecoming was about competition and getting as many points as possible for your organization in all the events. This years Homecoming Chair senior Lila Leckey, said that because of all the new situations that came together tthe 75th anniversary, the inauguration of president Donna Shalala, and the trip to the Rose BowD, the Executive Board tried to push love of alma mater as the point of the week. And it worked. ttPeople stuck through the rain, and overall more people participated this year. The last few events of Homecoming went extremely well? Leckey said. The parade was one of the last few events of homecoming, and accord- ing to Leckey, it was the best parade since she had been at UM. Thankfully, the rain held off until after the paradels completion. Ben Young, the homecoming executive board member in charge of the parade, said there was quite a large turnout -more than 30 on campus organizations and community groups. ttThe highlight of the evening had to be having Dr. Henry King Stanford, President Emeritus and Dr. William Butler, Vice President Emeritus in the parade, alongside President Shalalajl he said. This years winners included Kappa Sigma for fraternities, Kappa Kappa Gamma for sororities and United Black Students Association for independent organizations. ttThe parade is an important aspect of Homecoming because its a col- lective effort on the part of students, showcasing their spirit and creativity? Young said. llThis is also the one event where the entire University of Miami fami- ly is brought together. Not only do you see undergraduates, but you also see faculty, administration and alumni all in one eventf he said. After the parade, Stormwatch started, consisting of all the final events of homecoming. First on the list was the pep rally. However, the looming clouds finally burst, and the resulting rain caused the rest of the events to be out of order. The fireworks shot off immediately and then the rain let up just enough to allow the boat burning in the middle of Lake Osceola. Although Leckey said some people left because of the rain, she observed that a better majority stuck around to show their school spirit. The events concluded with Alumni Night at the Rathskeller. the definitely tried to push school spirit over competition this year?

At the end of the parade, we became lost in a sea of unfamiliar faces as we headed off to lunch. After lunch, we followed the crowds to a nearby high school where the floats were lined along the streets for display. Three hours just didnlt seem like enough time to fully take in the intri- cate details of each float. But three rolls of film later, we were on our way to meet some friends for dinner.

The lines at the gates were incredibly long, some stretching all the way to the outskirts of the parking lot. Most of us waited for almost an hour before reaching the security checks at the gate.

The second half was more of the same: more Miami scoring, more Miami cheering, and more Husker silence.

Whether it was in the bookstore, the Wellness Center, or the Richter Library, students took advantage of the opportunities offered through Miami Commitment and Federal Work Study. Miami Commitment gave freshmen the chance to find a job on campus despite their financial need. Interested students submitted applications in mid-June that inquired about the skills of the student and his or her intended career paths. The Miami Commitment staff then worked to match the student with an appropriate job that allowed him or her to exercise skills that were specifically tailored to his or her field of interest. The convenience and ben- efits of the program were especially appar- ent to the freshmen class of 2005, as the program received over 1,500 applications before the fall commenced. Over 1,000 of these students were accommodated with on-campus and off-campus jobs. Federal Work Study represented the same concept as Miami Commitment, yet it was a federally funded financial aid pro- gram that determined participants based on financial need. Some of the benefits of Miami Commitment and Federal Work Study were that both programs revolved around students needs. Senior Joel Diaz said, tiFederal Work Study has given me the chance to have a job a student can handle. The flexible hours do not make me choose between school and work, and the staff will help you find a job right for you?

After this meeting, the entire residential college staff meets at 8:00 p.m., then the RA tif he is on dutyi must sign in for duty and begin one duty tour for the evening. This tour consisted of teaming up with another RA that is also on duty and walking on every floor of the building, checking exterior doors, fire extinguishers, locking classrooms, and checking study lounges. Tours may last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half. Once the duty tourtsy was finished, the RA was on duty for any emergencies that may take place within the building throughout the night and into the wee hours of the morning unitl 8 am.

The tropical oasis of lush flowers, caves, and waterfalls was originally a coral rock quarry. Designer Denman Fink and architect Phineas Paist were confronted with the decision of whether to fill the abandoned pit or design a hot spot for locals. The decision was an inspired one. While the pool retained its natural shape, taking cues from the quar- ryis form and surrounding landscape, it became a favorite location for beauty pageants and Coral Gables parties. The gallery of vintage photos at the site takes visitors back to an era of glamour, when sunbathing was an art form, unconcerned with SPF.

It was the first thought of the morning for those attend- ing one of the most fashion-conscious schools in existence. Most students did not simply roll out of bed, grab their slippers, and run to class in their favorite pair of pajamas. They dressed to impress. Whether it was a star-studded belt, violet tinted shades, or sparkling gold jeans, students strutted their stuff even if it was only to walk from class to class. The fruits of laborious shopping efforts transformed students from immature, sleep-deprived kids to sophisticat- ed and glamorous adults. Whether students hoped to emu- late anyone from Kid Rock to Alicia Keyes, the fashion was achieved via the broad spectrum of Miami stores. With local fashion meccas like Dadeland Mall, the Falls, Sunset Place, or CoCo Walk, there existed something for everyone, with an atmosphere that only made one enjoy the shopping experience even more. ll1 love to shop at Banana Republic at Sunset.

The entertainment and diverse selection of stores truly reflected the flavor of Miami. ltOn Saturday nights I like the open air feel of Sunset Place. Itis crowded, but its a good place to interact with different people? said freshman Amir Keinan. From the customers to the food, almost everything found at the malls in Miami illustrated the variety of cultures in this single city. One glance at the food court in Dadeland Mall, for instance, presented tourists and residents alike with a med- ley of cultures. Middle Eastern falafel, Cuban platanos fritos, and Mexican fajitas were just a few of the many entrees that were found at this culturally inspired food court. Even the jewelry and art stands in the center of the malls held items inspired by cultures of countries such as Brazil, Haiti, Cuba, and Columbia. Miami offered its shoppers trendy stores accompanied with lively entertainment. Students had the opportunity to choose from the most well-known designers and countless world-famous stores to make their purchases. But most importantly, shopping in Miami allowed customers to feel a part of the multicultural lifestyle.

With the dining options available on campus, some found it hard to stay within a reasonable daily diet. Did the food court, Sbarrots, or Chartwells offer any cuisine to satisfy a healthy eater? A popular place in the food court was Burger King because, as Charlene Estevez said, tTm usu- ally in a rush, and Burger King has fast service? A Whopper without mayonnaise contained 530 calo- ries. Most students did not eat this without a side of fries, which contributed another 500 calories. Those that preferred a large order of onion rings consumed 480 calories. To down that food with a medium chocolate milkshake was also 500 calories. Thus, the average meal at Burger King consisted of approximately 1500 calories. Taco Bell was another place that constantly had a line of hungry students waiting for food. A popu- lar menu item, the 7 Layer Burrito, contained 520 calories. The Cheese Quesadilla was not far behind, with 490 calories. Those that preferred a slightly lighter meal ordered the Nachos Supreme, made up w have a hard time maintaining a heatty diet of 440 calories. Most found it more convenient to eat healthy at Chartwells, where they chose how students much and what to eat. ttAt Chartwells, it was easy to eat healthy because you had what you needed to ,. make a healthy meal and the ability to choose your Mahoney own proportions? said Denisa Canales. Though there were many foods to choose from, Pearson students agreed that there could be some changes Cafeteria made. ttAlthough they do have a good variety of Strawberry food, sometimes the quality of the food provided Shortcake could use some improvement? said Stacey-Ann 430 Shields. Others felt there should be more of a food selection in the dining halls and less repetition of the same meals offered every week. Wherever students chose to eat on campus, most places provided the calorie intake which made it convenient for students to gauge thier diets.

The answer is the dreaded parking permit that thou- sands of students purchased every year for a whopping $235. The purchase of this permit sim- ply allowed the driver the ability to park in a spot. To many drivers, however, the price was really $235 of frustration, unsafe lots, and miniature- sized spots. The typical driver parked with this pricey permit, but with how many hassles? First, parking on campus was inconvenient; there simply weren t enough spots. Up to two hours could be wasted in the parking process just to find a spot to park. Linda Hall, a senior said, I spend 45 minutes looking for spots in a garage, another 30 minutes waiting for the shuttle, and then I waste another 30 minutes for the shuttle to reach my class. This is ridiculous. Linda opted for the garages because when she arrived on cam- pus the lots were already full. She, along with countless commuters, spent multiple hours of the morning searching for that one spot. Even those who lived on campus dealt with the lack of parking spots. Resident assistant Roger Montieo explained, I wonlt leave Mahoney past 9:00 pm. on a Sunday; I know that when I get back my spot will be gone, and 111 be parking at Eaton which is 20 minutes away. Frustration, anger, and Photo by Russell Wojtusiak STORY BY VALERIE COHEN resentment would accurately describe how the normal drivers felt about the small number of spaces for thou- sands of drivers. Once a treasured parking spot was discovered, drivers worried about whether or not their car would fit into the parking space. Mike Cammarata, a sophomore, admitted to getting out of his car through his trunk. He explained, After an hour, that was the only space I could find, and I would have hit the car next to me if I used the drivers side door. Since there was an abundance of pricey Audis, Mercedes, and BMWs on campus, denting cars in a parking lot seemed a lot more dangerous -- and costly. Motorcycle drivers easily parked in any parking spot, but for 99.904 of drivers on campus, they did not have this luxury. Additionally, lack of space prevented drivers from parking in lots nearby residential colleges, class- room buildings, and offices. After two hours of searching, an empty spot has been found by a driver, and then he crawled out of the trunk. Now the driver can breathe a sigh of relief...right? Wrong. Now the driver must worry about safety. Poorly lit lots and on and off surveillance by police gave parking another hurdle. Most lots had poor lighting, and many felt uncomfortable just walking to their cars. Sophomore Marianne Mijares said, I wonit walk by myself to my car if its past 6 pm; there is no one there and its almost pitch black. I donit feel safe. The lots are dark, aban- doned, and silent, which made many uneasy about their own safety, and the safety of their cars. Regardless of these hassles and unsafe feelings, cars were important to students, and most still preferred to own them. They offered convenience and independence. However, with $235, drivers bought a two-inch, white and orange parking tag which allowed them to park in certain lots on campus. Yet this parking tag did not guar- antee a spot, did not describe the space of the spots, and did not promise safety. Instead, these parking passes told drivers that the thrill of driving had quickly transformed into the pains of parking.

No, it wasnlt my typical night on South Beach, it was Halloween at the Grove. First of all, I didnlt have a costume, and it was a Wednesday night, so I was not about to start drinking. But somehow, my plans changed. After a friend convinced me to go, I took a cab, figuring it would be easier than trying to find parking -- and I was right. About five blocks after the cab driver turned onto Grand Avenue, we were in bumper to bumper traffic. Seeing that the cab fare was quickly rising, and I was get- ting nowhere fast, I paid the driver and headed to the Tavern. pretty early, around 10 pm. A few party I actually arrived people were there starting early like myself, but before I could make it to the bar, I decided to leave, remembering that the Grove was actually home to one of my favorite bars, Wet Williels. As I bolted out of the Tavern, I was stopped by a slow mov- ing mob of people, dressed in all colors shapes, and sizes. The most common cos- tume was a soldier, probably due to the rise in nationalism, thanks to Sept. 11. While rave :63 h Photos by Russell Wojlusiak looking at these great and not so great cos- tumes, I sifted through the crowd, listening to cops directing drunks to stay on the side- walk. After a 10-minute walk twhich nor- mally took five, I made it to Wet Williels, bellied up to the bar, and took in the sights. After seeing so many people having a good time being drunk, I decided to join in on the fun. I ordered my favorite drink, the Triple Play.

It was around midnight, and I had had my share of partying. Before I could hail a cab, I got a call from my best friend that she was on her way and wanted to meet up with me at Baracudals. Naturally, I thought it was a great idea. Once inside of Baracudals, we both knew it was not the place for us. It was so packed, loud, and smokey, that we could After we both agreed to leave, we headed to Sandbar. barely hear each other.

I was falling asleep at the table in Flaniganis, so at about 4:30 am, the three of us all headed home, tired and ready to go to bed.

All it took was a quick trip to Blockbuster, or if you lived on campus, an even quicker trip to the front desk. Rentals from a Residential College were free, and Blockbuster rentals were less than $5 compared to theater prices of $6-8. Popcorn, sodas and snacks were also way cheaper from the vending machines than the movie theater. Dinner could be ordered in from a variety of local restaurants including Chicken Kitchen, Casolais, or Cajun Grill. Pizza, a staple for college life, could easily be ordered for less than $10 from Papa Johnis, Dominds or 05 Pizza Hut. 0 To spice up your dinner and a movie night how about inviting your friends over for a theme night? One theme to con- sider was a totally 80$ night, where big hair and spandex were always in fashion. Some good movies to watch were Sixteen Candles, Brealgpast Club, St. Elmol s Fire or any of the other ttbrat packil movies. But if you were more in the mood for a night of murder and mayhem then why not rent the Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween? Besides being an easy and convenient way to spend time with your friends and catch up on the latest rentals it was also cheaper then spending the night bar hopping in the Grove or the Beach. So, with a quick trip to Blockbuster and a phone call to your favorite take out place you were on your way to an exciting night.

NIGHTLIFE ' ' ' BOUNCER STORY BY BRUCE OBERG orking as a bouncer at The Sandbar can be very entertaining. We have to take out the trash, check for minors, and break up fights. This may sound exciting, but fights are rare, minors somehow get in, and most of our time is spent tak- ing out the trash. Its the house bonuses that provide most of our entertainment. Usually the nights starts slow, with people stumbling in around 11:30 pm. It usually takes an hour or so for people to loosen up. By this time, our job is to watch the crowd for fights, which usually means talking with our drunken friends about their future. Itis amaz- ing how ambitious people get after a long night in the Grove. I always wonder how some- one can become an actor, corporate executive or pro golfer within their five-year plan, but not have a resume. Maybe I am not working hard enough. Listening to stories gets old. I usually pretend that I have something else to do so I can stop the inane chatter. By 1:30 am, I have seen enough of my drunken friends, so I find a nice corner and watch the females stroll by. Most girls are very friendly by this time and conversations are quite stimulating. The problems that sorority girls go through are amazing. Deciding between a summer trip to Spain or Argentina must be horrible. How can someone live with such pressure? As I am striking out with a female, in walks Godman to seal the deal. Like clockwork, he stumbles in every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, usually slur- ring words, and pretending he is someone special. At this point, I will take out an empty trashcan just to get away. The funny part is, on Friday morn- ings he still smells like beer and smoke in class. He must have that Sandbar Cologne that seems so popular on Photo by Mary Miller AS A BOUNCER AT THE SANDBAR, senior Bruce Oberg checks The nights after a football IDs on a Saturday night in the Grove. Although it was only a small part of a bouncers job, it was also the most social. Friday mornings. game are very interesting. Usually, the team comes in for a friendly victory party. The players never get out of hand, but as always some 150 pound tool will hit on one of the players girlfriends. This causes problems that the bouncers can do nothing about. After the player threatens to pummel them, they come to us asking for help. I usually laugh at them and walk away. Usually, 300 pound linemen arenit bothered. Overall,T he Sandbar is a fun and eventful place to work. I heard they filmed a porno- graphic feature film on the pool table, but I know nothing about it. I get paid to walk around and talk with friends, take IDs away from minors, and take out the trash. My five- year plan is to make head bouncer and continue to take out the trash.

All types of relationships played important roles in students, lives and forced them to find a balance between school and work. Yet, this was no easy task. Many thought that relationships were stressful and definitely affected study habits. In addition to the general issues of being in a relationship, there was also a large population of homosexual students. Some members of the gay community felt a little differently about the possibility of having a partner at school, and were cautious of comments, persecution, and hate crimes. On the flip side, others believed that there was an acceptance of gays on campus. But overall, the consensus of students was that any kind of relationship at school was manageable. People just needed to identify the line between work and relationships.

But what would a movie be without dinner? In Miami, the dining possibilities were endless, whether one yearned for franchise fare or a Cuban meal that tasted like mamals. Some restaurants like Bed, where customers dined between the sheets, relied on a gimmick to set themselves apart from the hundreds of other establishments. At Cheesecake Factory, a local favorite, the gimmick was its huge 20-page menu, offering over two dozen appetizers and over 25 types of cheesecake.

For those beach-goers with time on their hands, a three-hour drive to the north took them to the spring break classic, Daytona Beach, and a three-hour drive to the south put them on the key of their choice.

Miami. This Diamond celebration marked 75 challenging K years of achievement, notoriety, diversity, and growth. With the inauguration of our fifth president, Donna E. Shalala, the University continues to evolve into a nationally renowned university. Through the years, the University has triumphed over many obstacles to achieve the respected status it holds today. Starting its academic tradition in cardboard-portioned classrooms, the first students registered for classes on Oct. 15, 1926. The school slowly began to grow, but faced challenges along the way. Hurricanes and a depression tested the University, and a terrible war infil- trated its way into the hearts and minds of the students as well. During these tumultuous years, the forefather of civil rights, Martin Luther King Jr., preached his message of equality on campus and students exercised their freedom of speech with a candle light protest of the Vietnam War. After 75 years of well-deserved triumph, this institution has become a leader in research, academics, athletics, and service to the community. The University maintains its strong academic integrity and prepares for an even more prestigious future. GEORGE E.

Originally planned to take place on the Commencement Green, after early morning showers, the event was relocated to the breezeway, Flamingo Ballrooms, and the Rathskeller. Planned by 32 executive board members, the day took eight months of preparation, including securing President Shalala as the speaker, ordering shirts for the event, solicit- ing money, and coordinating with ttspecial citizenst, houses in the area. These citizens were either mentally handi- capped or disabled or had motor skills problems. One uni- versity student paired up with a citizen for the day, taking him or her around to the different stations set up by the executive board. Fonner university president Tad Foote cancelled his Boston trip to attend the event. Foote supported Funday since its beginning in 1981. Other special guests included the band Rum Boogie that performed at the Rathskeller.

This coVeted week was a time to relax, celebrate, and let loose. While a traditional college spring break experience included going to the beach, like in Jamaica or Cancun, some students preferred to pursue other avenues. Some visited their families back home, some took lavish trips to Europe or Asia, some stayed put and entertained visiting friends, and some even took classes or volunteered.

ASBls main goal was to make uone week ast a lifetime? The program offers locations round the country. Some issues that students olunteer with were domestic violence, youth iolence, fine arts and poverty. Last year, t SBis chair Yasmin Bootwala, volunteered in 'hiladelphia with a welfare rights foundation. ttThe whole experience shaped my college areer and was definitely a true life learning rxperiencef Bootswala said. ltWhile on the ip, I met my future roomate and best friend? This past spring break, board member Danielle Miller traveled to the southwest t0 work at a domestic violence service at a Navajo Indian Reservation. While there, she helped build a sweet lodge and had the unique oppor- tunity to be present at an authentic Navajo Indian ritual in the sweet lodge. The process for getting involved in ASB was rather simple. It began when the executive board took applications for site leaders. The site leader applicants went through an inter- view process to make sure that they understood what they would be doing and that they were comfortable in doing that. ttIt is also a way to weed out the students who are doing this as a resume builder, and not just interested in working for the cause? said executive member Danielle Miller. Student Life I 119 I Alternative Spring Break As a site leader, they dealt with any con- flicts that arose while on site and made sure that all the ASB rules, such as no alcohol use, were being followed. Once site leaders were chosen, participant applications were handed out. Students listed their top three site loca- tions, and the executive board placed the stu- dents with sites. Those who were selected were notified in December and then attended week- ly group meetings during the spring semester. These meetings acted as bonding experiences between the people who were going to the same site and gave them some information on the places that they would be Visiting and activities they would be participating in. APRIL 5-13 International Wee Organizations celebrate diversity and educate students ab From April 5th to the 13th the UC patio was home to international cul- tures, customs, and cuisine. It was International Week. seven day dedi- cated to letting the international stu- dents share their culture with other students to let them know where they really come from. This years theme, ttUnited We Stand? reminded us that although we all come from different parts of the world we must all attempt to bond together as one. The week started off with Asia Day followed by a night of majestic Asian dances. The following Monday was Africa and Middle Eastern Day. Tuesday was European Day. Clubs such as the Italian, German and Scandinavian clubs were there with memorabilia from their home coun- tries. On Wednesday the 10th at Hometown USA, the patio was transformed into a carnival-like scene, with sumo fights, balloon glove boxing and snow cones.

They were relieyed to find local internship and job opportunities in PR as well as to make valuable networks with local professionals. UMis Public Relations Student Society of America tPRSSAi chapter held its annual Professional Mixer on campus in Coral Gables on March 28th. In attendance were members of the chapter, public relations majors from the Universityand several local professionals from various companies and areas of PR. The purpose of the event was to introduce students and professionals, network, and help the students find valuable information, internship and job opportunities. Students came with resumes in hand, eager to make plans for their future. Even for those students not looking for immediate jobs or internships, the professionals were able to offer valuable advice on how to get your foot in the door and how to stand out among several other applicants. ttWith so many recent cutbacks in the job market, ,Iim nervous about graduating and not being able to find a good job. Talking to the professionals really helped me realize what I need to do in order to gain the necessary experience and to make myself stand out to possible employers? said Nadine Lada. Students were not the only ones who stood to benefit from the informal mixer. Many representatives from local companies were on hand to recruit as well as to get the word out to students about their company. tiThis mixer is very beneficial for us as THE TOPPEL CAREER CENTER offers students a number of services, including ToppeiTrak and on campus inter- viewing, to assist them in their job search.

Welcome to your last few weeks of school. Ever. Words could not even begin to describe how hectic the end of a school year could be, especially for a graduating senior. There was so much to think about and so many loose ends to tie. Actually finishing classes, finals, and projects was hard enough without adding the pressure of making all the necessary arrangements for graduation. Things like ordering your cap and gown and going through exit interviews tended to slip your mind when you were stressing about the fact that you hadnit lined up a job yet. I Throw in thoughts about ending 16-20 years of school and losing touch with your friends forever and it was no won- 1 der that so many seniors experienced panic and anxiety attacks. Not to mention that your entire family was flying i in for the big event and staying with you for a week. PICNIC GIVES SENIORS A CHANCE to reconnect with old friends that they might not have n in three years, giving them the chance to discuss each other's future plans. Of course, there was always time to be found to let loose and celebrate a little. Many university departments and organizations sponsored special banquets, receptions, and events for graduates, including the traditional Senior Picnic, which was held at the presidents house every year. Seniors were asked to dress in business attire and were bussed from Stanford Circle to President Shalalais house in the Gables. Hosting her first Picnic, Shalala greeted every senior in attendance at the front door and welcomed them to her beautiful home. On the back lawn, seniors mingled with their friends, faculty, and people they hadn't seen since their freshman year. til couldnlt believe how many people I saw at the Picnic that I hadnlt seen in three years. I didnlt even know that some of them were still at UM? commented senior Elizabeth Chapman. Guests enjoyed a variety of foods from sushi to pasta and even some ice cream. Although many were disappoint- ed at the complete lack of alcohol at the party, Virgin pina coladas and daiquiris were served. Despite the abundance of bugs and lack of seating, students had fun and enjoyed ERING THE BACKYARD, Robyn Weisman stops to reflect on her college years. the beautiful Miami sunshine.

STORY BY MARY MILLER very May, we looked back and thought, tlwhat a year? but truly the 2001-2002 academic year was an extraordinary one. With so many ups and downs, we sometimes found ourselves wip- ing away tears of joy and sadness all at the same time. From the attacks on Sept.ll to winning a national championship in Pasadena, the University of Miami commu- nity had a great deal to reflect upon, but also much to look forward to. We started off strong with record num- bers of enrollment and on-campus residents. We suffered through severe shortages of housing and parking, but by Labor Day, we were well into the swing of things and were looking forward to an incredible year. Despite our strength, nothing could have prepared us for the events of Sept. 11. Devastated by such an immense act of ter- rorism, the UM community, along with the rest of the nation, bonded together to aid and support any and every person affected. We took action when some of our own students were harassed because of their Middle Eastern-like appearance and did our best to preserve the peace and safety of our univer- sity. And just when we thought it couldnlt get any worse, South Florida became a tar- get for bio-terrorism as cases of Anthrax began spreading across the nation. Stemming from these horrific acts of terrorism, students associated with Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity became involved in a CONTINUED ON PAGE 132 FRESHMAN CHAD MEREDITH, a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, drowns in Lake Osceola early morning Nov. 5. CHRIS CAMPBELL, a senior linebacker, dies in a car acci- dent at a Coral Gables inter- section on Feb. 16. CONTINUED FROM PAGE 131 case of harassment toward Arab students. When The Miami Hurricane published news about the case, members of AEPi stole 9004 of the Oct. 5 issues of the paper from newsstands. The papers were eventually returned to the Dean of Students and three students who were found respon- sible were forced to pay restitiu- tion. In addition, Jordan Rodack, who served as both editor in chief of The Miami Hurricane and a member of AEPi, ultimately resigned from the fraternity as a result of the case and many bitter feelings. Only a month later, the University experienced another great loss as Hurricane Michelle swept across South Florida. Chad Meredith drowned in Lake Osceola when Freshman he and some friends went swim- ming in the choppy waters, heavy winds, and pouring rain. Alcohol consumption was listed as a pos- sible factor. Things began to look way up as we celebrated the Universityls 75th anniversary and the inaugu- ration of our fifth president, Donna Shalala. President Shalala brought a new perspective to UM as the first woman president, and wasted no time in implementing major developments and improvements at the University. Culminating a perfect sea- son, we experienced an all-time high as our mighty tCanes won the national championship in Pasadena. Thousands of tCane fans travelled across the country to watch our football team domi- nate the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 37-14, in the 88th annual Rose Bowl. A record number of travel- ling students and fans followed the team to celebrate our fifth national title in the streets of Pasadena, Calif. The celebration continued as the city of Miami honored the Hurricanes with a tickertape parade on Jan. 25, fol- lowed by a major on-campus cel- ebration. Continuing into the spring semester, the University experi- enced a bit of legal trouble as four women filed three sexual harass- ment lawsuits involving former Toppel Career Center Director Michael Gage and members of the football team staff. Another possible case arose when Mahoney resident Maria Paola Ramirez fell from a fire escape in the middle of the night and was paralyzed. Ramirez had reportedly been under the influ- ence of alcohol when the accident ocurred. Making big changes and upsetting many students and fac- ulty, President Shalala made a decision in Feb. to dissolve the School of International Studies. Despite their complaints and protests, the students were no match for Shalala, as her final decision returned the program to the College of Arts and Sciences. the University when senior line- More loss struck backer Chris Campbell died in a on Feb. 16. Campbell was reportedly driving car accident drunk when he crashed at a Coral Gables intersection. Fellow team- mate Joel Rodriguez survived the accident.

Johnson was caught plagiarizing and was orig- inally sentenced to a one year sus- pension. Following an appeal, his punishment was reduced to a sus- pension from the upcoming sum- mer sessions. Looking toward another great year, Michael Johnston was sworn in as Student Government President in late March. Johnston ran with Justin Levine and Mahala Dar on the ticket A Change in U..7Cause its Timel. 2001-2002 SG President, Jose ttPepiT Diaz, was The former also named Florida College Student Leader of the Year by Florida Leader magazine. Diaz was UM,s first recipient as well as the first Hispanic-American to receive the award. In efforts to continuously improve life at UM, the campus underwent a great deal of con- struction throughout the year. While work continued on the new arena tno longer being called the Ryder Centerl and the Richter Library, Eaton Residential College, the University Center, The Rock, and San Amaro Drive all saw renovations and improve- ments. Maj or construction began in the spring to eventually allevi- ate the campus parking hassles. Campus greens became one big parking lot as the Pavia lot began its transformation into a parking garage. The Ponce garage and the Pearson residential lot were also closed at the end of the year for summer constmction and expan- sion. Renovations continued across campus all throughout the Summer lntersession. The year certame made us see things from a new perspective and taught us how to grow and learn together as a community. Tragedy brought us closer and forced us to rely on each other for support. At the same time, cele- bration brought us even closer and encouraged us to continue striving to be the best in everything we do. We shared many new beginnings and a few sad endings, but we sur- vived it as one great university. From the first day of school to the last, our lives were changed forev- er, and for the first time, the Ibis covered it all, every step of the way. What a year.

She worked for the Carter Administration, the US. Department of also Housing and Urban Development, the New York City Municipal Assistance Corporation, and the Peace Corps. Shalala was a director of Gannet Company, Inc., UnitedHealth Group, the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, and the Lennar Corporation. She was Glamours Woman of the Year in 1994, and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellow.

We must do everything in our power to make sure that these terrorists feel our strength, our courage, and our determination, Shalala said. If the University of Miami does its part to continue to sow seeds of excellence, the world will know that intellectual freedom is strong and unbowed in our country. Shalala expressed the importance of diversity at the university by pointing out that Miami es el mundo tMiami is the worldl.

Several important political figures congratulated Shalala and gave her words of wisdom, including Florida Governor Jeb Bush and past UM presidents Edward Tad Foote and Henry King Stanford. Governor Bush described President Shalala as a true leader who had a zest for life and welcomed her to Florida. Miami is a place unlike anywhere else in the world. I am so glad you re a Miamian! Governor Bush said. The inauguration concluded with the UM Symphony Orchestra playing the Alma Mater and the Band of the Hour entertaining on Stanford Drive. The street resem- bled a carnival with a variety of foods, music, and enter- tainment from clowns and circus acts. Many said they eagerly awaited the changes that lay ahead.

Kyle Alvarez, a motion pictures major said, tilt gives students in the School of Communication the feeling as if they are all one unit. Itls also well organized in that each of the four floors is a specific depart- ment inside of the school. I think the organ- ization, the placement of the rooms, and the overall style of the building is what makes it unique? The building was in pristine condition. Some rooms were classrooms with VHS, DVD, projection capabilities, and the abili- ty to connect to the web. Other rooms included photography labs, computer labs, animation rooms, broadcasting studios, sound mix theaters, and faculty offices. Having state-of-the-art facilities at hand seemed to attract prospective students to the University. Will Chan, a freshman and video-film major said, ttCompared to the Communication facilities at other schools that Ilve seen, you can tell that UM spent a lot of money on the abused. When it came down to college choices for me, I heard that they had the new building here. When students see that the school has gone this far with all of the new equipment and new facilities, they see itls better than having some old room with dilapidated equipment to work with.

They connected with some of the biggest names in their fields, and paved the way for top-notch job offers after graduation. This was all made possible through internships. Senior Giselle Frias interned at Ogilvy and Mather advertising agency in Coral Gables. She worked on the American Express account for Latin America. In refer- ence to her internship, Frias said, I ve learned a lot. Im glad I did it. Its been a really good experience, especially working for the international market. Internships weren t just a load of busy work, or a few senseless hours spent behind a computer. Employers assigned students hands-on tasks, to gain experience that they would actually utilize later. Senior systems analyst major Viviana Gonzalez interned at the Federal Aviation Administration in Atlantic City, New Jersey. While there, she worked with the simulation system Extend to help with aviation security and explosive trace detection in small airports. I actually applied what I ve learned in class. I might go back and maybe use another program, Automod, which simulates in 3D, Gonzalez said. A select few got to work for one of the country s top cable television stations, MTV.

The Marine Science Laboratory formally opened in 1943 due to the efforts of the University Board of Trustees, then president Howard Ashe and Dr. Walton Smith, profes- sor of Zoology. All shared a mutual interest in developing a tropical marine research institution in Miami. After surviving a rather rocky start, the marine science program began to carve its niche in the world of sci- ence. The program expanded throughout World War II and afterward. While workers constructed the toll bridge connecting Key Biscayne and Virginia Key, some proposed the creation of an aquarium on the key. Thus, the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science was born and Dr. Smith eventually became Dean of the School. The rest, as they say, was history. The school built a reputation for fine scien- tific research and excellent facilities. Hundreds of high school graduates flocked flocked from all over the country and parts of the world to study marine science at the Key Biscayne campus. Freshmen start off in MSC 111, intro- duction to marine science. As a part of the course, there was a discussion session, which required that students spend time on lab work. In this lab, we had the chance to experience micro-marine life first hand twho knew plankton was so cool?i Microscopes were essential to lab undertak- ings. We looked at fossilized plankton which Photo by Amanda Hoyos JILL ANDERSON WORKS on a project at the Marine and Atmospheric Science School. Students performed lab and other hands-on activities here. told us whether there was a glacier in the area it was found. We grew our own tiny t reefs 1 and stared at the barnacles and tiny organisms that evolved on them, in an experiment called t macrofouling y We also studied the salinity of water and the nature of very old sand. There was a unspoken tradition of hav- ing a lab sessions with marine mammals once during the semester. In past years, the School used Manatees, but this year, they decided to go with dolphins. It was an incredible experience. The dolphins played with and chattered among themselves and others around them. The class was divided into pairs that were each assigned a dolphin and then taught how to identify him or her. Students watched for specific things: move- ments, noises, patterns in behavior, interac- tions with each other, response to toys and stimulus such as music, and behavior in the absence of trainers. It is as close to the field as we got, and we loved it. The program introduced students to a world they assumed they knew and revealed their misconceptions. Marine science enthu- siasts wanted to learn more after their first taste of the major. Rosenstiels research areas included satellite oceanography, a global marine and atmospheric chemistry program, and sedimentary geology and marine geophysics. The school was one of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences sites for the Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences Center. It also housed several research centers, such as the National Caribbean Coral Reef Research Center, the Center for Sustainable F isheries, and the Environmental Analysis. Center for Marine and Photo by Amanda Hoyos BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS at the Miami Seaquarium, located next to RSMAS, were essential to marine curriculum.

Its like art - always in progress? A real sense of imagination and dedication was required to be a part of the Architecture School. Some people on campus, if asked, couldnit name someone they knew in the School of Architecture because they rarely had a chance to communicate with others outside their major. Most students spent late nights and early mornings at their desks in the studios or at the architecture library. Some projects took such dedication that students stayed IN THE STUDIO, first-year student Michael Johnson works on a project based on Domino Park in Little Havana. Architecture students used local sites as foundations for many of their own works. Photo by Matthew Tumbleson up all night. Many students slept on their desks, the benches outside in the courtyard, and even on the ground of the balconies. The architecture students were in the pro- gram for the long haul. Not only was archi- tecture one of the hardest majors, but it was also a flve-year program. With require- ments of up to 18 credits per semester, the school required that upper-level students mentor underclassmen in their works. Fulfilling its promise to drive new tal- ent, the program took many field trips around Miami to show real-life projects, as opposed to pictures in a book. The dedica- tion of the professors and the willingness of students to help each other out amazed many. A single project was not just one stu- dentls work, but rather a culmination of many students ideas and creativity, togeth- er on one piece of paper. The architecture program strove to spread knowledge of past structural works, and to inspire ideas for new ones.

Academics 8; Faculty I 151 I Architecture School being well tORGANIZEDl A placefbr everything and everything in its place is logic followed by some college students who use boxes, shelves, and caddies to keep some order and simplicity in their organized lives STORY BY MATTHEW TUMBLESON BY PLACING their toiletries into baskets and contain- ers, room- mates can keep their bathrooms clean and organized. Tooth- brushes, soap, and razors all had designated spots next to the sink. Photos by Matthew Tumbleson ince the beginning of time, societies have fought over the organization of their government. Italy alone has had over 60 different governments in the post World War II era. On a much smaller scale, parents have fought wars everyday with defi- ant children who refused to organize their own rooms. Inevitably, these kids grew up, went to college, and had to decide for them- selves when the laundry needed to be done, or the week old pizza should be discarded. It was up to the student to decide how and what to organize. Surprisingly, many new students implemented the organizational skills taught by parents into the dorm room. They folded their laundry, cleaned their bathroom once a week, and even dusted off the shelves. But for the select few that chose to live in dis- saray disorganization became the way of life.

CONTINUED FROM PRGE 152 It started with the closet. Most students never had to share closet space tmuch less a rooml with another person. To try and conserve space, some bought convenient hanging shoe racks to organize their shoes. For the unorganized novice, however, it quickly became a great place to shove dirty shirts and pants. In fact, a pair of pants fit perfectly into the shoe-sized space. Another great concept was the laundry bas- ket, which students used to hold many things: clothes tof coursel, shoes, garbage, and even backpacks. Laundry baskets worked for the organized student, but for those that werenlt as lucky, they became a mess magnet. Another area that illustrated the organi- zational technique was the bathroom. Most students who lived on campus had a small basket, which generally housed bathroom supplies such as toothpaste, hair gels, or deodorants. Unfortunately, the makers of the small baskets forgot to add dividers, so the rushed student easily turned an organized bas- ket sudsy mess with leaking bottles, squished tubes, or empty containers. The last and final area in need of organization was underneath the bed. Although there was not much room under the dorm beds, students utilized the avail- able space for many things. For instance, Rubbermaid made space-saving boxes that fit perfectly under a bed. Toiletries, eating utensils, medical supplies, and even food was packaged neatly in an air- tight containers and slid under the bed. The unorganized, though, chose another approach, such as simply llsqueezingll items under the bed. The ltsqueezingll technique was good for those who had to know where all their belongings were at one time. A quick glance at the pile spilling out from beneath the bed frame revealed the dilapidated binders, empty soda cans, and dirty socks. In the end it all came down to preference. One manls mess was anotherls treasure. HURRICANE EDITOR Jordan Rodack quickly scribbles a message. As editor of the Universityls periodical, he rarely had time to spare for cleaning and organizing his office. F allowing a tiring athletic schedule and fulfilling tough academic demands at the same time is a balancing act STORY BY BRANDIE FEUER 8t ETHAN VON ZAMFT s avid fans of collegiate sports, many students Arespected the time and effort that athletes spent practicing and preparing for their respective sports. Yet, unappreciated at times was that athletes at the college-level of sport did not merely train to meet extremely high ath- letic standards, but academic Freshman Alfredo Perez called this balancing act ones as well. incredibly hard. Perez, a member of the base- ball team and a biology major, woke up four days a week as early as 5:00 am. He worked out at the Hecht Athletic Center from 6:00 till 7:30 am. After his workout, he had breakfast, and went to classes between 9:00 am. and 1:50 p.m. Following a quick lunch, he practiced with the baseball team at Mark Light Stadium for two and a half hours until 5:30 p.m., and then had din- ner. Some days, he had labs from 6:00 p.m. until 9:20. Even with this Perez needed to already hectic schedule, spend time studying and completing home- work. As a freshman, he was required to participate in weekly study sessions, the freshmen experience class for stu- dent-athletes, and the one-on-one mentorship pro- gram. 1 need to study about eight hours a week, said Perez. You need to do this if you re a football player, tennis player, or whomever. Perez believed that the difficulty of being a stu- dent-athlete was on par with the difficulty of having grueling classes. You can be an athlete, have biology as a major, and take some harder classes, or you can be an athlete, take easier classes, and it s still equally as stressful. Much ofthe difficulty is not simply studying, but that you re an athlete working on your career, said Perez. Having to balance the studying life of a student and the a training life of an athlete did not pose much of a problem for the busy fresh- Photo by The Hurricane STUDENTS TAKE A BREAK from their books to hit the hoops.

If you figure out how to balance your activities, you should have no problem, he said. Even with the dilemma of being a full time student and a full time athlete at once, Perez said that there was never a problem concerning cheating or other ethical Violations of that nature. You should think about consequences, he said. If you cheat, you let down your team, the entire organization. For athletes, its a big responsibility because we re going to be looked at more closely than other students. They have tutors at the study hall; you don't feel the need to cheat because you have all the resources.

Some students decided that a life in front of cam- era was for them, while some decided that life behind the cam- era was preferable. Other students thought that playing a role in government was the right path to follow. Louis Aguirre graduated in 1988 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. Best known as the sidekick t0 Belkys Nerey and Lynn Martinez on South Floridais hit magazine show Deco Drive, Aguirre had a long histo- ry in the television world. His first job was with Channel 51, a Spanish-language station in Miami. Soon after leaving Channel 51, Aguirre began working , for the US. government-supported station, Radio Marti, created to transmit to Cuba. After doing some work with Extra, A Current Ajfair, and taking on small parts in All My Children, Guiding Light, and the hit cable show Sex in the City, Aguirre started working with Deco Drive. Louis is not the only Deco Driver to have attend- ed UM; senior producer Ted Goldenberg also grad- uated in 1991 , with degrees in Broadcast Journalism VVVVVVVV and Political Science. It was Goldernbergis job to assign stories and prepare them into blocks, and come up with all the shows anecdotes, all while overseeing the production of the show.

STORY BY JEFFREY MCCANN 0 you need peace and quiet for that huge midterm or research paper that you have tomorrow? Where do you go? You cant work on it in your room because your roommate keeps blasting Spice Girls on the radio, and you can,t use your study lounge on your floor because those rude kids from down the hall are working on a project and are being totally loud. Now you are really at the end of your rope and don t know what to do. Why not travel to one of the University,s unappreci- ated quiet spots? The most obvious place to get down to work was the Otto G. Richter Library, where one lost him or herself studying in the stacks or in one of the newly improved study rooms that were virtually sound-proof. For those students lucky enough to be enrolled in the business school, a short trip Academics 8L Faculty 1 167 I Where to Study to the lavish study lounges of the Jenkins Building was all that was needed. But if you were one of those people that couldntt study in total quiet, and liked to be around people, then your best bet was the International Lounge on the second floor of the University Center. There, study-holics were surrounded by fellow students, but usually were still able to complete neces- sary homework or test preparation. ; lfe inside RICHTER The Otto G. Richter Library provides valuable resources and state-Qf-the-art technology STORY BY JEFFREY MCCANN or those of us who have actually ventured into the Otto G. Richter Library, we found that it was more that just a place that housed dusty antique books. It was actually the largest of the UM libraries and a state- of-the-art research facility, right at stu- dentst fingertips. If you had a research paper, the Richter Library was your best bet to find up-to-date information on your subject. Richter had over 80 Dell Optiplex GX 110 Pentium II 866 com- puter work stations. These computers provided students with access to the library catalog, web-based information services, graphing software, printers and scanners. If you ever needed help with comput- ers, the library employed assistants from the Information Technology Academic Service Department to help with what- ever computer questions you had. They also had government documents, news- papers from around the country, and helpful assistants to help you locate what ever you desired. Many went to the library to study or work on group reports in one of the many study rooms on the second floor. Other available services included tours and research consultations. 3m Photo by Hal Goldstein IN THE STACKS, students can search through volumes of informational resources.

University of Miami vs Rutgers BY ZEV MINES For two seasons, Greg Schiano orchestrated one of the most talented defenses in the nation. So he wasn't at all surprised when Miami domi- nated his Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 61-0, on a rain-soaked Orange Bowl field. Schiano, UM's defensive coordinator from 1999-2000, tilled the head-coach- ing vacancy at Rutgers after the 2000 regular season. His former players forced five fumbles and an interception, while holding the Scarlet Knights to a meager 126 yards of total offense. The Hurricanes racked up 127 yards on penalties alone. "Miami was a very good football team we played out there tonight and I know that better than anybody," Schiano said. Inclement weather delayed the game for almost an hour, but that just delayed the inevitable. Despite the penalties, Miami controlled every aspect of the game and improved to 9-0 in the all-time series against Rutgers. Schiano threw out various formations including multiple wide receiver sets, but Miami's secondary wouldn't budge. Rutgers quarterback Ryan Cubit finished the game 6-0f-l7 for only 47 yards. Meanwhile, the Hurricane otfense was making mental errors, but was able to get away with them.

The second largest crowd in Doak Campbell Stadium history t82, 8365 watched Miami force six FSU turnovers and turn them into 35 points. The Hurricanes did not look entirely tlawless, however, turning the ball over three times themselves and committing 15 penalties for 125 yards. But even with the errors, the Hurricanes had the dedication and the little bit of luck to put away the 'Noles. With the Canes leading 35-20, Todd Sievers set up to kick his first field goal of the game. However, Joe Fantigrassi, filling in for the injured Chris Harvey, snapped the ball away from holder Freddie Capshaw. Cupshaw tried to pull the ball down, but realized it was a bust- ed play. He had no Choice but to make some- thing out of nothing. He didjust that, running with the ball into the end zone, putting the game out Of reach.

In a lopsided 38-0 shutout, the 3, .415 Hurricanes' offensive line surrendered its first sack in 12 5 games. In the second quarter, Temple linebacker Jairo Almonte broke through the right side of the line on a blitz and put Dorsey on his back. Ironically, Temple was the last team to record a sack against Miami, accomplishing the feat Oct. 21, 2000. The players were disappointed that the streak was over, but eager to move on. "It was a goal for us," center Brett Romberg said. "If it happened, it happened, but I we're still not going to be, 'Oh we gave up a sack, $35? now it's over."' Dorsey did have enough time to throw two touchdown passes, breaking Miami's all-time record in the process. Dorsey surpassed Steve Walsh and Vinny Testaverde with a first- quarter touchdown pass to Kevin Beard. The was marked more milestones as running back Clinton Portis eclipsed the 2,000-yard mark for his career. Portis finished the game with 20 carries for 117 1 yards.

So when it appeared hat the game and the season were slipping away for Miami at Boston ' ollege, the Hurricanes didn't panic - they persevered. Ed Reed capped off n amazing 91-yard interception that gave Miami an 18-7 win and kept its ational title hopes alive. With just over 20 seconds left and the ball at iami's 9-yard-line, Mike Rumph deflected a Brian St. Pierre pass into the ands of Matt Walters. Walters subsequently ran with the ball, only to have t stripped by Reed at the 20. Reed took care of the rest, running 80 yards or the game-sealing touchdown. "The thing that you see in championship ms is that usually you have one of these that you somehow have to win," oker said. "Sometimes when you do, it could be a good situation." After even straight blowouts, Coker got his first scare. Miami led by only five n the final few minutes of the game, but freshman Frank Gore's fumble ;ave Boston College the ball and a chance for the upset. Gore entered the ame after Clinton Portis slightly sprained his ankle. Portis carried the ball season-high 35 times for 160 yards, offsetting Ken Dorsey's worst game s a Hurricane.

The Orangemen accomplished neither, dominated by the top-ranked Hurricanes in a 59-0 blowout. "This team is scary when they are connecting on all cylinders," said head coach Larry Coker. Miami struck fear into the hearts of their Big East foes, taking a 24-0 lead into half- time. The Hurricane defense completely shut down Syracuse, allowing only 185 yards of total offense.

The Hurricanes mettle and their undefeated season were put to the ultimate test in Blacksburg, Va. - a place in which they had not won since 1992. That year Miami was in the national title game. The 'Canes assured themselves a spot in the Rose Bowl - site of the 2001 National Championship game - edging the Virginia Tech Hokies, 2624. And everything came down to a two-point conver- sion. The Hokies' Ernest Wilford dropped a Grant Noel pass with just over six minutes left in the game, following a Va. Tech blocked punt returned for a touchdown. Even after the failed conversion, the Hokies still had a chance to score. But with 4:18 left, Ed Reed picked off Noel for his nation-leading ninth interception. Punter Freddie Capshaw got a punt off with less than a minute left, pinning the Hokies at their own four-yard line. That allowed the Hurricanes to barely hold on, despite blowing a 20-3 halftime lead. Clinton Portis rushed 34 times for 124 yards and a touchdown, while Todd Sievers nailed four field goals - two in each half. The 'Canes were held without a touchdown over the final half. Ken Dorsey played well but didn't put up the numbers in his final bid for the Heisman Trophy. Dorsey finished 20-0f-41 for 235 yards and a touchdown, but had receivers drop several passes. Dorsey didn't care about the numbers; he was just happy to be leading the Hurricanes t1 l-OT to an unde- feated season and the shot to bring home Miami's fifth national championship.

Following the worst regular season in school history, Miami turned it on in the postseason and was one inning shy of advancing to the College World Series. The 2002 season marked only the second time since 1994 that head coach Jim Morris's squad did not make it to the CWS. The year ended following a 6-4 rally loss to South Carolina in a decisive third game of Super Regional play in Columbia, SC. The lCanes were ahead, 4-1, in the top of the ninth before allowing the Gamecocks to erupt for five runs. Miami, who finished at 34-29, did have an impressive run while in postseason play. After sweating it out until the final selections, the Hurricanes garnered their NCAA-record 30th consecutive Regional appearance. Seeded third in the Gainesville Regional, the 'Canes beat F IU and won two of three games against host and top-seeded Florida. In the final game, Jim Burt's ninth inning two-out, two- strike, two-RBI double propelled UM into the Super Regionals with an 8-7 Victory. The Hurricanes dropped the first game against South Carolina but picked up the second behind solid pitching by Dan Touchet. The sophomore righty became the staffs ace midseason and finished with a 6-2 record. Junior slugger Danny Matienzo helped at the plate, delivering six home runs in the post season alone. Although the 'Canes lose Matienzo, senior Javy Rodriguez tteam-leading .376 aver- agel and others, Morris will do everything he can to take his team back to the CWS.

The Angels didn't pass up on him after Rodriguez led the team with a .378 average and 37 stolen bases. Starting pitcher Kiki Bengochea came on strong at the end of the season and was select- ed in the 1 1th round by the Texas Rangers. First basemanlthird baseman Matt Dryer also played a key role late in the year and was selected by the San Francisco Giants in the 15th round. In the 21$t round, 21-year old sopho- more T.J.

HONORof theHighest Seventy-five years of tribal tradition and love of alma mater precede Iron Arrow,s esteemed members STORY BY VALERIE COHEN uring the University's first year of existence, 1926, nine students founded Iron Arrow, the highest academic honor a student could attain. It was a Seminole Indian tribe that tapped members twice a year: once during homecoming, and again in the spring. The organization held initi- ation in the Everglades once a semester. Each tappee had a sponsor within the tribe who acted as a mentor. The traditional jackets, which were seen around campus in a flurry of woven reds, blacks, yellows, oranges, and greens, were hand sewn, each design having a signifi- cant meaning. To become an Iron Arrow mem- ber, one met five criteria: leadership, humility, scholarship, character, and love of alma mater. The tribe's leadership heirachy was made up of the Council of Elders, consisting of five gradu- ated members, a Chief who acted as president, the Son of Chief who acted as the vice presi- dent, and the Treasurer. Finally, the Medicine MantWoman was the ritual chair and tribe sec- retary.

The weeks events included Skip-a-Meal, where students gave up a meal on their meal plans that was donated to the Miami Rescue. Another event was the Sleep-Out on The Rock, where approximate- ly 20 students slept outside overnight and heard from guest speaker Steven Porter, the Director of Ministries from Touching Miami VVlth Love. Finally, the Faces of the Homeless Luncheon fea- tured a panel of four formerly homeless individ- uals who told their personal stories.

The audience could clearly identify With the speakers on the panel, as one had attended Johnson 8: Whales and the other had attended the Citadel. It just goes to reiterate there is no one face to the many faces of the homeless- it could be anyone.

The group had 50 bowls decorated and sold tickets to those wishing to purchase the unique bowls. STEP raised $450 and donated the proceeds to Touching Miami with Love children 5 program.

Hillel achieved Lidor thor as students came together in a Jewish environment and grew within their commu- nity. Hillel Student Jewish Center sought to bring Jewish students together with innovative programs and activities. Hillel helped its members build a stronger connection to their faith and enhance their identities in a diversified world. Jewish students had the opportunity to embrace their heritage through Torah study, participate in inventive pro- gramming, and become future Jewish leaders. F irst, Hillel stove to continue education for col- lege students through programs such as Lunch and Learn. For this program, a rabbi met with students and offered hisiher take on the portion of the Torah that corresponded to that week. This Torah discus- sion allowed students to increase their Judaic knowledge in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Next, the celebration of Shabbat at Hillel Offered unique ways to celebrate the Jewish day of rest. Shabbat by the Sea and Sushi at South Beach were just a few of the many themes explored. These contemporary takes mixed with age-old Hebrew prayers made Shabbat at Hillel quite an experience. By presenting the day with diverse and attractive themes, there was a Shabbat for everyone. The student-run programs at Hillel hoped to reach every Jewish student and allowed members the chance to plan and coordinate their own pro- grams. The activities reflected the diversity found within the organization and students chose which activity they related to most. The Jewish Hispanic Group, for instance, planned events that include Latin culture. The F irst Year Student of Hillel tFYSHy coordinated social events to acquaint new Jewish students. The Jewish Volunteer Team brought together students to takun 01am C'make the world a little better'j. The Team fed the impover- ished, and assisted special needs children and sen- ior citizens. Hillel created future Jewish leaders by promoting selfless acts through its diversified pro- gramming. E i: 1mm.

Coach Franklin Williams had been part of the club for twenty-seven years. This years president was Saul De La Guardia, and Vice president was Alex Conley. The treasurer was Andrew Artero and the secretary was James Davidson. The team had more than 30 members and played against all other universities in Florida. The rugby team also played against menis clubs and international teams, and even toured Jamaica during spring break. The team played year-round, during the fall in the Florida Cup as an independent team, and during the spring for the Florida Collegiate Championship. Players practiced twice a week and almost every Saturday. With its full contact tack- le tno padsl, participants joked, "donate blood, play rugby". This team worked hard to fund itself; it received some of its money from SAFAC, but it was mostly funded by donations and the students, own money and fundraising. "Rugby is the most challenging sport I have ever played, both physically and mentally. Its a rough sport, but I love it," said La Guardia. With its long existence and devoted players, the sport looked as though it was a permanent facet of the campus, club sports scene. And one quick reminder... girls were always welcome to play.

W E A LTHe i Information The Miami Hurricane newspaper staff races the clock twice a week to put out the next edition STORY BY JEFFREY MCCANN AND MARK PUSKARICH office on a Sunday evening. Where will you find most editors of the newspaper? Undoubtedly, they will be in the newsroom editing stories and laying out pages. Sometimes editors worked into the wee hours of the morning, wrapping up pages and then running the final product to The Miami Herald to be printed. The paper had to be completed a day prior to the distribution date for this reason. Not only were Sunday evenings dedicated to this type of work for the paper, but Wednesday nights as well. The paper was issued every Tuesday and Friday mornings. The Hurricane offered advertising space for outside companies, vendors, University departments, and students of the University. Additionally, in the Opinion Section of the paper, students, faculty, and staff were given the opportunity to voice their thoughts on University, local, and national issues. Its around midnight in the newspaper Although there werenit many racial con- flicts with the issuing of the paper, Sept. 11 caused a unique problem. For the first time in years, the paper was stolen from every paper stand on campus before the school day began. A certain fraternity was involved in this theft. The reason: a story in the stolen issue report- ed that the fraternity was harassing students of Middle Eastern descent. To save face, the fraternity felt it needed to get rid of the evi- dence of what it had done. To further complicate the situation, the newspapers editor happened to be a member of the fraternity responsible, and this put a terrible strain within the brotherhood. The fraternity was reprimanded by the Dean of Students Office, and, consequently, the fra- ternity was fined and the editor disaffiliated himself with the fraternity. Aside from outside adversity, The Hurricane continued to cover all stories it felt were newsworthy t0 the campus community.

The team, which had approximately 25 to 30 riders, had a busy year of horse shows and events. The team attended a number of intercol- legiate shows this year throughout Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. There, they competed in many events, such as walks and jumping competitions. The team com- peted against the University of Florida, Georgia Southern, Wesleyan and the College of Charleston, to name a few. To prepare for these shows, the team held prac- tices and weekly lessons at the Sheridan ' Oaks North stables in Davie, Florida. As members of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, the Equestrian Team also hosted its second annual horse show in February at Tropical Park. There, about 200 riders from eight schools around the southeastern United States competed in a variety of events. ttWe were very excited to be able to host another show this yearf said rider Kristina Trotta. ttHosting a large event demonstrates how we have really grown as an organiza- tion? In additions to shows, the team also spent their time going on trail and beach rides and volunteering with neglected hors- es and for Horses for the Handicapped.

In November, COISO participated in Homecoming and hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for those international students that were unable to go home for the holiday. COISO's biggest event, International Week, was an annual spring tradition marked by the sweet sounds of music, tantalizing aromas of ethnic foods, and a rich sense of culture. Different regions of the world had a day to display what made each unique. Latin Day, Asia Day, Pacific Night, and Caribbean Day allowed students to learn about traditions of specific parts of the world through booths, fashion shows, and skits. COISO proved that a sense of culture and her- itage was possible by forming bonds between stu- dents of varying countries.

"'s as easy as one two three." "Come on feel the noise." Game attendees sang the lyrics to these classic tunes, all of which were a part of the 2001 Band of the Hour march- ing band show. Hard-core football fans heard the band play at every home football game but probably didn't realize all the work and effort that was put forth to make the marching band live up to their Band of the Hour title. First organized in 1933 under Walter E. Shaeffer, The Band of the Hour continued to achieve musical excel- lence through its diverse music selections and undying support for the football team. The band actually received its name from a half-time announcer at the Orange Bowl. The marching band plyaed a piece by Henry Fillmore, who was referred to as "The Man of the Hour." The announcer unknowingly named the UM marching band when he introduced the performance as, "The Man of the Hour, played by the Band of the Hour." The Band of the Hour did not only play the half time show. Pep rallies, parades, national conventions, promotional record- ings, and even a television commercial were just a few of the many activities the Band of the Hour participated in. In addi- tion, the Band was host for the American Bandmasters Association three times, con- sidered an esteemed honor. These awards and achievements came only with diligence and perseverance. Band camp rehearsals began in August before school started and weekly practices during the football season worked to perfect music and formation for the show. The marching band was one of the most spirited organiza- tions on campus, and sought musical excel- lence, the hour, every hour.

Organizations I 271 I Band of the Hour DESIGNefthe Times Students in publication design travel the country to acquaint themselves With experts, work STORY BY MATT TUMBLESON many new additions: a new communica- tions building, a record number of student enrollment, and the first on-campus chapter of the Society for News Design tSNDy. Although the group of undergraduate students had no official meetings, nor even a president, they somehow managed an entire trip to the yearly meeting for SND, in Phoenix, Arizona. SND members previ- ously traveled to other conferences, going to such locations as Seattle, Atlanta, and even Prague, in Czechoslovakia. The purpose of the society was to excel in the quality and originality of newsprint designs. Many newspapers and periodicals around the world belong to SND, including the Miami Herald, the Arizona Reporter, and the Los Angeles Times, and other recognized publica- tions. Time quickly snuck up on the students as they feverishly packed their bags and set off towards the west coast. Most of them brought portfolios and resumes to show the many newspapers what the future of news design has to look forward to. A last-minute phone call to each student from Professor Randy Stano, the advisor of the Miami chapter, and former president of the esteemed organization, gave explicit details of what time particular events were to occur, and what to be ready for. The students left early Thursday morning, and arrived in Phoenix around 4PM. Although a few minor mishaps occurred, the students were still very excited about the events that were to come that evening - the commencement celebration. The festivities were held at the Herd Museum in downtown Phoenix, a museum that specifically housed original Native American art. An open bar and buffet served Native American inspired cui- sine, and interactive exhibits lined the museum walls. ttl had such a great time? said senior Mark Puskarich. ttThe food was great, the people were great?

The following days brought many meetings, ses- sions, and speeches from notables including David Handschun, a Pulitzer-prize winning pho- tographer who was injured in the September 11 attacks in New York City. The group from Miami also had some free time to explore Arizona, so they chose to Visit the Grand Canyon, one of the wonders of the world. The first official meeting of the Miami chapter of SND was held at a restaurant in the Grand Canyon, whereupon members were elected, and a second meeting was planned. Emily Pulis became the first-ever president of the Miami chapter. That short trip was an experience to remember, and the unveiling of the next years location - Argentina - definitely left the members filled with anticipation for the coming years confer- ences.

The challenge gave members the opportunity to work together on team building activities, which helped them learn to cooperate with the different working styles of other members. With the completion of the Ropes Course, members became more comfortable working with each other as an organization. The purpose of the group was to distribute the roughly $500,000 activity fee to campus organizations. In order to do this, SAFAC required one member from each organization to present a budget request for his or her organization for the entire year. During the presentation, the member presented his or her organizationls yearly expenses and income. This was considered the regular budget request, which was due in March. Any additional costs an organization incurred throughout the year that was not included in the regular budget request had to be pre- Photos provided by SAFAC AT THE TEAM ROPES ADVENTURE COURSE AT FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY, Lila Leckey attempts to move from one end of the high rope to the other.

If an organization wished to buy a computer, couches, or any other item that would last longer than that year, it would have to produce a capi- tal budget request and present to SAFAC prior to making the purchase. After all requests were presented to SAFAC, the com- mittee decided the amount of money the requesting organ- ization would receive, and a letter of allocation was placed in the organizationas mailbox. All budgetary decisions made by SAFAC were approved by Pat Whitely, the Vice President for Student Affairs.

Not only did I not know anything about Greek life, but I also did not know anyone on campus, for I came from Brazil. Where I come from, Greek life is non-existent, for the college itself is too lit- tle for such organizations. Hence, the pri- mary reason for my involvement in a soror- ity was for friendship. I wanted to become a part of the circle of friendship that encompasses Greek life. On the first day of recruitment, we were placed in Rho Chi groups. These groups were made up of current Greek members that left their organizations for two weeks to give incoming, prospective members the chance to get an unbiased look at the Greek community. That very same day, I made many acquaintances and even bonds of friendships that have lasted to present day. During the week, we had to choose which sorority we liked most. Making the choice was the most challenging and difficult task, for in every suite, one would make a friend or two with whom they wished to establish a bond of friendship with. After weighing the pros and cons of each sorority, I had to select my top two choices. I then received an invitation from both sororities I had cho- sen, then I was able to go back to preferen- tial night and decide which sorority I found most attractive. After learning about the two sororities I had chosen, bid day Icame, and I had to select my first choice. On bid day, I was excited and nervous to open my invitation to flnd out who gave me a bid. All the girls in my Rho Chi group were nervous and excited to open their bids, hoping they would all be placed together. After tortur- ing us for a few minutes, we were finally allowed to open our bids; some girls screamed, laughed, and hugged each other; some cried, and others were in awe. I was excited with my bid because I knew I was about to become a part of a sorority, and also acquainted with many other greeks I already met during recruitment week. During recruitment week, a record number of 399 women participate in Recruitment, making it the third largest in history Photo by Jacqueline Browne ON THE FIRST DAY OF RECRUITMENT WEEK, potential new members wait outside the Kappa Kappa Gamma suite.

Five of these frater- nities had suites located in the Mary B. Merritt Panhellenic Building located across from the Learning Center. The other six fra- ternities had houses located on San Amaro Drive, also known as iiFrat Row? across from the Hecht Athletic Center. Each organization was made up of collegiate men with a common goal or purpose, with his own experiences, identities, and future aspirations. These men were involved with dozens of philanthropic organizations on the national and local levels, as well as involvement in the campus community. Each individual organization had been at the University for at least a year, with var- ied purposes. The organization sponsored iiGreeks and Goblins? a philanthropy where chil- dren from the United Way came to Frat Row to trick or treat on Halloween through- out the houses. Each fraternity paired up with a sorority and decorated the fraternity houses. The purpose of this event was to provide the children of the United Way with an enjoyable holiday.

Besides Homecoming, Funday, and Greek Week tto raise money for United Cerebral palsyl there were many more events contributing to other worthy causes. IFC participated in The March of Dimes Walk America by donating over $500. Another project, Greeks and Goblins, invit- ed children from underprivileged areas to tttrick or treatll in the fraternity houses. Since not all chapters had houses, fratemi- ties were matched up with a second frater- nity and a sorority to prepare for the event, allowing participation from all IFC and Panhellenic chapters. With involvement from the junior councils from IFC and Panhellenic, Pajama Jam collected canned foods for a local food pantry. Members could only attend the party if they brought canned foods with them. The other Greek IFCXPanhellenic organizations that participated in philan- thropy projects included Kappa Kappa Gammals ttKappastafl Pi Kappa Alphals thikels Pig Out? Delta Gammals ttAnchor Splashjl Sigma Phi Epsilonls ttWeek For the Heart? Delta Phi Epsilonls ttDeepher Dudes? Sigma Alpha Muls ttSam Slamf Zeta Tau Alphals ttZTA Fashion Show? and Lambda Chi Alphals ttWatermelon Bust? All these community philanthropy events allowed both the fraternity and sorority members to come together to raise money and awareness for their causes.

Throughout the week, events were held all over campus to foster Greek community and make the presence of the fraternities and sororities on cam- pus known. Another purpose of the week was to raise money for United Cerebral Palsy tUCPL and donate blood to the South Florida Blood Bank. Every sorority and fraternity participated in Greek Week events, which took place at campus sites ranging from the Wellness Center to the Rathskellar. This year, Greek Week was held one month earlier than in past years due to scheduling conflicts. CONTINUED ON PAGE 326 A Night at the Movies CONTINUED FROM PAGE 325 Opening Ceremonies kicked off the week at the Rathskeller, where the Greek God and Goddess were crowned. The win- ner of the Greek God competition, Andrew Foti, performed a soliloquy from the movie When Harry Met Sally. His costume, made by his mother, was half woman and half man: half a teal dress and half a brown leisure suit. Bearing the make-up done by a friend, Fotiis performance centered around the idea that men and women can- not be platonic friends. Other male contest- antst talents ranged from guitar solos and singing to salsa dancing and cheerleading. Besides displaying their talent, contest- ants had to answer a question about their fraternity or sororityts philanthropy and a question from the movie Austin Powers. One movie question was tilf your roommate walked in on you and Fat Bastard, what would you tell him or her? The responses were creative and entertaining as contest- ants embarrassed even themselves with their answers. For her talent, Greek Goddess Margaux Manley performed sign language to the National Anthem as the song played in the background. She wore red pants, and a T- shirt bearing a US. flag within a heart. She dedicated her performance to her sororitity sisteris stepfather who died in the terrorist attacks on New York City. Other female contestants sang and read poetry. Before the evenings events began, Greek Week chairs Mary Clark and Jorge Lima, led the sorority and fraternity shoutouts. During this time, Greeks cheered for their chapters. Additionally, the commentators selected the most spirited chapter, and gave them an award shaped like a Greek vase. Due to rain, the second event of the week, Olympic Day, was held in the Wellness Center. The events included a pizza eating contest, tug of war, rowing, relay races, and the arm wrestling competition.

Greek Life I 327 I Greek Week Photos provided by Mary Clark CO-CHAIR JORGE LIMA USES THE PHI DELTA THETA MEGAPHONE to get everyone's attention, letting all in attendance know what was going to happen for the rainy day schedule. The day progressed in the upper gym, with events such as tug of war, relay races, and the rowing competition. A Night at the Movies CONTINUED FROM PAGE 326 The relay races included wheel barrel races, where a person holds onto their part- neris legs while the partner walks on hislher hands. It also included a portion where a person had to run while balancing an egg on a spoon. The rowing competition, or "erg- ing" as crew team members called it, was dominated by one female contestant, varsi- ty crew team member Liz Miller, who beat all the men in the competition. Because it rained for the majority of the day, the Greek Week Executive Committee cancelled the basketball and flag football tournaments, cutting the day short. The rest of the week included the Organized Cheer competition, an event that brought out the biggest audience of specta- tors eager to cheer on and watch the enter- taining dances of each Greek organization. On the days preceding Greek Week, those who passed by the Panhellenic Building or any fraternity house heard the men and women preparing to compete in the Cheer event. Singing and chanting in unison, they practiced for hours, sometimes into the wee hours of the morning, in an effort to become the first place winners of Organized Cheer. Costumes adorned with glittering symbols of the US. and patriotic backdrops of each greek organization also proved that much artistic prop preparation was involved in their particular cheer. Throughout the evening, the sororities and fraternities would alternate perform- ances, with two ttSingled Outli portions breaking up the strings of cheers. During Greek Life I 328 I Greek Week the rounds, the Greek God and Goddess got onstage to narrow down single Greek mem- bers of the opposite sex. Criteria included height, hair color, and age. The Greek Week royals then had the opportunity to ask more specific questions of the few remaining contestants. A final question that the Greek Goddess asked was, ttlf you were a car what kind would you be and why? to which many of the male contestants gave interest- ing answers. The Greek God went one step further by asking the female participants to give their best impression of an orgasm. tThe other scene from When Harry Met Sallyj females too embarrassed to imitate such This quickly eliminated all the personal pleasure in public. God Foti and Goddess Manley had the chance to go out on a blind date with their final picks. CONTINUED ON PAGE 330 GREEKS AWAIT THE BEGINNING OF A RAIN DAY SCHEDULE OF OLYMPIC DAY.

The Patriot theme of the Organized Cheer event allowed all of those patriotic Hurricanes to express what America means to them. All of the participants showed off the product of their mentally and physical- ly demanding work as well as the resulting bond that had formed between the sisters and brothers. Most performances included a skit to tie together all facets of the cheer. allowing performers to make costume changes while keeping the cheer aesthetically interesting.

Final picks were treated to a dinner date. A Night at the Movies CONTINUED FROM PAGE 330 The next event of the week was the Mystery Event which was held at the UC Pool. Those who showed up at the UC Patio, and signed in for their points, had no idea what would come of the evening until they arrived. It was then that the Executive Committee let them in on the big secret. At the UC Pool they set up a screen for all of the Greeks to watch the movie, Revenge of the Nerds. The popular movie, which pokes fun at the Greeks of the i805, entertained all in attendance. Many Greeks dressed in Hawaiian themed outfits and received beads as they checked-in. The next event of the week was the 12- hour Dance-a-thon held at the Rathskeller. This eventls movie theme was Halloween. The fundraiser raked in $9,000, which was Greek Life I 333 I Greek Week Photo by Meredith Danzig SISTERS OF KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA AND DELTA PHI EPSILON check in to participate in the Mystery Event. By having a certain percentage of their roster in attendance, the sorority or fraternity participating received bonus points towards the possibility of winning that particular event. The finalists of each event of Greek Week were announced at the Closing Ceremonies. about $1,500 more than the previous years accomplishment. ttThatis more than any year weive ever done? said J orge Lima. Participants from all Greek organiza- tions dressed in Halloween costumes rang- ing from Jimmy Buffet, salsa dancers, Britney Spears, and Dorothy from Wizard of 02, to flapper dancers, and a barrage of angels, devils, and witches. This particular event gave Greeks a chance to have fun, bond, and mostly help others less fortunate. According to Delta Phi Epsilon President Amanda Hawryluk, ltWe got to spend time with each other-twelve hours together with nothing else to do. That never happens? In an effort that pulled at the heart- strings of all, the Greek Week Executive Dance-a-thon coordinator, Kara Cressey, worked hand in hand with UCP to give all dancers buttons with pictures of the chil- dren with cerebral palsy that hey were help- ing. This excellent idea helped Greeks keep in mind the real goal for the evening. CONTINUED ON PAGE 334 A Night at the Movies CONTINUED FROM PAGE 333 The sisters of Delta Gamma, dressed in their pajamas, and the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon, dressed in various entertain- ing costumes, were the final winners for the 12-hour Dance-a-thon.

To welcome everyones to this final event, the committee menbers dressed to impersonate movie ush- ers, and presented a slde show to summa- rize the various Greek week activities. Included in the show was the Blind Date highlight reel featuring the Greek God and Goddess on their previously won ttSingled Out3 dates. The Greek community showed their appreciation for the memories and accom- plishments of the week. Participants were reminded of the $9,000 they had raised for UCP, as well as the 11,000 pints of blood they collected for South F lorida Blood Banks. This was the first time in 15 years that all of the organizations had gathered to compete in these annual philanthropic events.

He lirst under- took this endeavor when he was a senior at St. Brendan High School. Later that year, he had his first poem published in Poetic Anthologies, and was since published in America at the Millennium Anthology, and International Library of Poets. Diaz also won awards for his poetiy such as 2001 Poet of the Year and the Presidents Award for Literary Excellence in 2000. As Jose leaves UM, he has one wish for the graduates: III would like to see more people graduate from UM with some sort of love for their Alma Mater as I aspire to have?

For over 12 years Robyn was a professional figure skater, a sport in which she became an international dual gold medalist in Canada.

However, in her spare time she enjoyed teaching local children how to skate, in classes at North Miami Beach and Kendall rinks. Robyn believed that the one person that had the greatest impact on her life was Zaneeta Daver. Besides being a good friend, Daver taught her how to become a better leader, through organization and planning, a skill that Robyn found very important in her life.

In February, the School Of International Studies was Closed and replaced as a program in the College of Arts and Sciences. In response to the schools Closing, students protested in front of the Storer Auditorium at the Business School. In athletics, Final Four victory fell short for the menis basketball team as it was eliminated in the first game of the playoffs against the University Of Missouri. In national news, the search for Osama bin Laden continued, and the government strengthened military support. All over the nation, citizens showed their support for the United States with Hags in car win- dows, on their homes, at their businesses, and on their Clothing.

Construction on the Pavia Parking Garage began in March, closing the park- ing lot beside the Dean of Students Office. Temporary parking lots were created on grassy areas on campus. Limited to com- muter students, employees, and faculty, the new lots were complete with parking lot attendants and parking space markers. Graduating seniors gained the knowledge of belonging to a community with their invite to a picnic at President Shalalais home during the last week of Classes. At the picnic, seniors were congratulated for their achievements and encouraged to join the Alumni Association. Students gave life to extracurricular activities, athletics, Greek organizations, and academics the University offered. This college life for four years tor sometimes longeri was what defined them.
