At the University of North Alabama, there are many legends. In 1 948, a method of capturing these legends was established on this campus known as the Diorama. The word " Diorama " was cho- sen because it means " a painted canvas, in sections, which tells a story. " Today, the Diorama continues the tradition of painting a story by telling the legends of this university for its readers. It is not always understood what it takes to qualify as a legend. Legends can be any- thing as long as they mean something to someone. In order to understand it, think of the legendary events that have been occur- ring on this campus. These events will com- prise legendary stories that will be told for many years by students and faculty mem- bers One of the many great legends of this campus will be about the three time Division II National Championship football team that won forty-one games in three years Another memory that will remain legendary in rrxjst minds is the beauty of the Victory (Continued on next page) my. in m«Tir«.

Others may remember small events like amusing moments during Spring Fling or the time at Homecoming when some guy asked a girl to marry him from a sign on the football field. Students will t hink of the excitement of hoping that the team would score. Still others will be reminded of the simple pleasure of talking to a friend. Yet, many will recall how thrilling it was to watch legendary quarterback Cody Gross and the Harlon Hill Award winner Ronald McKinnon play football. These unique stories, these seem- ingly insignificant moments, and the amazing people that make up this campus have what it takes to fulfill the role in the 1 996 Diorama as " Legends in the Making.

Maybe that is why we cheer too loudly at the football games, put off studying until the last minute, smoke one too many cigarettes, fight for what we believe, and even find our way to class on the rare occasion that it snows. Ask yourself, where else have I ever felt confident, humbled, amazed, frustrated, loved, exhausted, but totally exhilarated all in the same twenty four hour period? No where else but during a day in the life of you, the college student. Being a part of this unbelievable experience leads us to understand why college is so legendary. Legendary, in the sense that it only last for a few years; but if you make the most of it then every day you too will experience a ] .m TO THE rniPrS. Seemg the slightly snow- covered campus on a November day makes students wonder what it would have been like to stay in bed.

The theme this year was " Come Home; " and, as always, many alumni answered the call by returning to take part in the festivities. Some fondly remembered traditions from the past also made a return this year. The festivities began on Thursday afternoon when over twenty organizations painted the outside windows of the University Center. Many of the organizations chose the new Victory Flame as the theme for their display of artistic talent. The winners of this event were Alpha Delta Pi, Baptist Campus Ministries, and Sigma Chi. On Thursday night, a classic tradition of Mr. and Miss University was brought back to campus after a ten-year absence. A Mr. and Miss University were chosen to represent the spirit of the student body. Approximately thirty students were judged in four categories: performance in a popular vote, cam- pus involvement, performance in a private interview, and performance in an on-stage inter- view. The on-stage interview provided the audience with a candid look at all the candidates. During one of the interviews, Brandon Johnson received thundering applause for his reply to a question about what activities should take place during Homecoming. " The teach- ers shouldn ' t give any tests the whole week of Homecoming, " he said. Other questions ranged from " ...sing or recite the alma mater... " to " Greek life. Pro or Con. " At the end of this most inter- esting question answer session, Todd Foust and Kristi Nicole Steele received the honor of being named Mr. and Miss University. After the competition, Johnny Clueless continued the fun by tak- ing the stage to perform for the standing-room-only crowd. University alumni continued in the " COME HOME " theme by reviving another exciting tradition. The Victory Flame. The light- ing of the new Victory Flame was held at 9 p.m. on Friday and was attended by over 1,400 people. To mark the beginning of the flame, a candlelight service was held, in which the alumni passed the flame down to the students. The lighting of the torch marked the first time a Victory Flame has burned on campus since the first one was extinguished in 1987, after having burned for nearly 25 years. It was removed during the construction of what is now the University Center. The Victory Flame marks the return of a tradition which represents the past present and future ' -Dr. Kembrei lones loin««ominf| GO LIONSt SUccy Keeton lets her enthusiasm be luiowi to everyone at the pep rally.

The winners of the Pep Rally Spirit Challenge were Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Zeta Tau Alpha, and the Entertainment Industry Association. Dr. B. Kembrel Jones, director of alumni relations and annual giving described the pep rally as " one of the largest ever ' Although Friday afternoon ' s Homecoming Parade was canceled due to rainy weather, " mother nature " worked wonders on Saturday by providing a cool, but sun-filled day for the Homecoming game. The close-to-perfect Saturday afternoon was kicked off with a pre-game show at 1 p.m. that included the presentation of the Alumni of the Year and the Homecoming Court. The Alunmi Association named three Alumni of the Year. They were Nick Nichols, a photographer for National Geographic Magazine; Dr. Charles Spalding, a nephrology specialist living in New Mexico; and Robert S. Ryan, deputy director of the Structures and Dynamics Laboratory at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville. In addition, tl university named the following people to the UNA Athletic Hall of Fame: Joe Brewer, Sam Hardy, Gerald Lavender, and Roger Ralph. Laura Leigh Parker was crowned this year ' s Homecoming Queen. Parker, a senior who is major- ing in elementary education, was a gracious winner: " Being elected queen is a real humbling experience because I was elected by my peers, and that is an honor. " The high-point of homecoming is of course, tl. football game. The football team lived up to every- one ' s high expectations. The Lions responded to the roaring of the crowd which packed Braly Stadium by romping past Valdosta State 26-9. With the sound of the final gun at the end of the fourth quarter, another Homecoming became a cher- ished memory. Everyone played a special part. The overall winners of the homecoming festivities were Zeta Tau Alpha, the University Players, and Sigma Chi. Dr. Kembrel Jones captured the spirit of this year ' s Homecoming while speaking about the Victory Flame. " (It marks] the return of a tradition which represents the past, present, and future. " This year ' s Homecoming celebrated the past, and looked for- ward to a bright future for this University. A THRILLIMi MOMKXT.

The only work they do consists of, on a rare occasion, attending a class or two. The rest of their time is spent socializing " on the quad " or spending every waking hour partying their brains out like John Belushi in Animal House. You have also probably noticed that life on this campus doesnt quite match the Utopian image portrayed in the movies. There is a simple reason for this. At this university, it seems nearly everyone you talk to has a part-time job. Some brave souls even work full-time, because, in the real world, it costs roal money to go to school. Tony Ricketts, a senior majoring in general science, used to be one of those insane people who tries to combine col- lege with the grave- yard shift. He would work from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. at Food World in Muscle Shoals and then come to school. It ' s hard to believe, but Ricketts claims he didn ' t have any trouble staying wake. " 1 always tried to schedule my classes after 10 o ' clock so I could get at least two hours of sleep before coming to school, " said Ricketts. He ' d then sleep for a few hours after he got home and then it was back to work. Through all of this, Ricketts says his grades didn ' t fall. " It didn ' t affect my grades, but the hard thing was learning to manage the time I had in order get assignments done and do a quality job. " Those days are over now, as Tony has managed to rise from the graveyard. He still works at Food World, but now he works a regular shift. Tony also now works as a lab aide in the geology department here at school. " Working in the lab is an opportunity that arose at a time when I needed a little more money, " he said. " It ' s really convenient because I get to work between classes. " The long distance award goes to Vonda Moore, a junior majoring in English, who works at a bank in Tupelo, Mississippi. Moore says she works to pay for school and for gas. She definitely needs a lot of gas, since she has an hour-and-a-half commute up the Natchez Trace to get to school. Moore chooses to combine work in Tupelo with the long drive to UNA (rather than a short com- mute to Ole Miss) mainly because of UNA ' s smaller size. " I like the smaller campus, the smaller classes, and the fact that there are no graduate students teaching classes. " She has kept her job in Tupelo because she thinks it will provide her with great experi- ence for her resume, but school is definitely the most important thing right now. " 1 give school the priority even though it upsets my employer some- times, " she said. Matt Lindsey, a junior majoring in marketing, manages to go to school and hold down a job where he gets 40 to 50 hours a week. He works for two rea- sons: " to pay for work, and to pay for my car. " Lindsey is gener- al manager of Soft Touch Car Wash, where he has worked since he was a senior in high school. Fifty hours a week and col- lege classes would seem like an impossible load to handle, but Lindsey says it isnt that bad. " I get off work at 6 o ' clock, and that gives me plenty of time to study. " Anyway, Lindsey says, it ' s worth it. " When I graduate, I will have the people skills which are a must in the working world. Plus, I have made lots of business contacts including police officers, local radio personalities, and even the mayor. Th)y Aikman (quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys) even came in one time. " So, maybe students who hold down jobs have the upper hand when the desperate search for employment begins after gradua- tion. That ' s probably worth a little extra work Workinn Off f ampin I I 1 always tried to schedule my classes after 10 o ' clock so I could get at least two hours of sleep before coming to school ' -Tony Ricketts CAST LIST M.

When the Departments of Music and Theatre joined forces to produce Moiiere ' s The Bourgeois Gentleman, they made beautiful music (and drama) together. The Bourgeois Gentleman, a joint creation of playwright Jean- Baptiste Poguelin(Moliere) and composer Jean-Baptiste Lully, is a musi- cal comedy which was originally produced as court entertainment for King Louis XIV in the 17th century. The play explores what happens when a common tradesman attempts to transform himself into a gentle- man by hiring a team of tutors who, in the end, only succeed in making him look like an idiot. " This is a common theme throughout Moiiere ' s works, " said Jim Davis, the play ' s director. " When we pretend to be more that we are, we usually end up looking foolish. " Although, according to Mr. Davis, the play is rarely performed in this country, it seemed a logical choice for the spring production. " First of all, Moliere is studied by colleges and high schools all over. Second, we needed something that would accommodate a lot of students. " Dr. Tom Ed Moore, assistant professor of music and producer of YuleFest for the past two years, is no stranger to campus drama. You might remember his cameo as Dr. Morris ' s shade-wearing spiritual advis- er in All Over Tbwn last year. This year, he worked behind the scenes as music director (and harpsichord player). " This was much more difficult than YuleFest mainly because of all the research that went into it, " Moore said. " We had t.o do a lot of research on Lully [the composer) and his style, since we had to con- vert the original score from strings to brass. " Close attention was also paid to the original perfor- mances of the musical — to details like the placement of instruments. " We wanted to be as close to the original pro- duction as possible, " Dr. Moore said. They came pretty close — the performance included an authentic eighteenth century harpsichord donated by the First Presbyterian Church of Florence. The cast also put in a lot of time to make sure the play was a success. One member of the cast was Scott Stooksberry of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, who played Covielle, Celeonte ' s valet. According to Stooksberry, practices got longer and longer as the performance neared. " We ' d practice every night, starting at six and ending whenever Mr. Davis thought we were done. Sometimes that was eight; sometimes it was twehre. " Stooksberry said that his role was more difficult than those he had played in the past. " I had to be a lot more versatile because there were a lot of physical characteristics invohred with this character. He had two different walks and two different voices. " It looks like we can look forward to more cooperation between the Departments of Music and Theatre in the future. " The Bourgeois Gentleman received such a good response from both departments that we ' re looking around to see what we can do in the future, " said Dr. Moore. Mr. Davis agrees. " They [the Music Department) were terrific. When asked if he planned to woiic with the Theatre Department in the future, his answer was an emphatic " Yes! Yes! Yes! " ' ' We wanted to be as close to the original production as possible " -Dr. Tom Ed Moore 1W Bo Tge o to Gwitienian 15 To eat or not to eal That s the question! by Holli Hai;grove and Allison Stack " What should I eat? " This question is probably one of the n ost popular questions that is asked every day on college campuses. Colleges have changed the way that students view school food from " yuck " to " yum. " The Dining Services on campus provide both stu- dents and faculty with an endless array of foods that are sure to tempt everyone ' s taste buds. The Food Court in the Guillot University Center is an extremely popular place for both breakfast and lunch for students. Every day, hundreds of hungry students patiently wait in long lines for favorites such as club sandwiches, chicken fingers, cheeseburgers, made-to- order deli sandwiches, and the always popular french fries. A new addition to the food court was Pizza Hut that served the campus with personal pan pizzas and hot breadsticks. For students who prefer the healthy side of college life, the salad bar stood as a welcome retreat from the fast food of the campus. The hot food bar also gave students another dining option that was healthy, with home- style foods. Calorie counts are also fea- tured above the items on the hot food bar. A sometimes more convergent option to dorm residents is Towers Dining Hall. Located between Rice and Rivers Residence Halls, Towers Cafe features an all-you-can-eat dining experience. Residents and visitors can go to the dining hall for three meals a day. The cafe has a bakery, salad bar, deli, " mom-like " entrees, and even ice cream for dessert. Students should also not forget that there is an espresso bar known as the Wired Lion. The Wired Lion is in the center of the University Center on the bottom floor, and it serves a variety of cof- fees, hot chocolate, and even some desserts like cheesecake. Of course, if dining with the university meal options is not for you there are always the handy vending machines that are in almost every building on campus. Students who live on-campus may also choose to journey back to their dorm rooms and prepare their own food with various small appliances. Most students will probably never find anything that is just like mom ' s fine cooking, but it does not hurt to sample all the dining options that are available on campus. After all, one may find that school food is actually belter than mom ' s home cooked meals. One may find that school food is actually better than mom s home-cooked meals« TOfiKT UKAI.TH FOOD.

Spring Fling got underway once again on Monday, AprU 10. For four exciting days, campus orgaiuzations took part in the fun-filled activities that were planned by Spring Fling sponsor Jayne Jackson and the Spring Fling Committee of Andrea Porter, Kristi Steele, Bobbie South, Melanie Hancock, Gina Barrett, Tobi Mayes, Tommy Barke, and Tabitha Guy The theme for this year was " Dazed and Confused. " The activities kicked off at 8 a.m. on Monday with the Penny Drop, sponsored by the Phi Mu Sorority. In this event, each penny dropped counted as a vote for the dropper ' s choice of Spring Fling King and Queen. At the same time, the chalk art contest got started. The event was judged on the use of theme, creativity, and visual appeal. At noon, contestants gathered for the Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest. In this event, contestants were given three chances to hurl a seed as far as they could. The distances of these three attempts were averaged, and the contestant with the best average spit was pronounced the winner. During a well deserved lunch-break, students were serenaded by the Fiddle Worms, who performed at the Amphitheatre. At 1:00, the jello eating contest wrapped up Monday ' s activities. The winner of this event was the contestant who consumed a plate of jello the fastest. On Tuesday, there was more voting for the King and Queen. At 8 p.m., the Atrium of the University Center served as a movie theater for a showing of the cult-classic film. The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Some students even felt the need to dress like their favorite Rocky Horror character. Wednesday was another exciting day full of competitions and events. The Marketplace, which featured local vendors, began at 8 a.m. At 3:30, the relay games were held on the practice field. This year, the games consisted of Leap Frog, Trolley Races, " Dizzie Izzie, " Jax State Style Football, Egg Toss, ahd Tug of War. These crazy events gave students a fun way to compete against one another. On Thursday at 1:00, the novelty games began on Wesleyan Ave. in front of the University Center. The games included Sumo Wrestling, Bungee Run, and Bouncy Box. At 7 p.m., the Spring Fling King and Queen were named and crowned. The King and Queen were Paul Haverstick and Elanna Bates. At 7:30, Spring Fling was finally brought to a close with a moonlight concert by Mind Station in the Amphitheatre. Another successful Spring Fling was in the books. AN ENLIGHTENING EXPERI- ENCE.

The auditorium lit- erally couldn ' t contain all the people that wanted to see the show this year. N!any people were standing HI the aisles, and many more were turned away at the door. From ticket sales alone, $4,095 was raised for the United Way. In addition, the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity donated $500. Nine groups took part in the festivities this year. Co- chairpersons of the UPC Step-Sing Committee, Cara Dawn Byford and Kellee Reed, were emcees this year. Baptist Campus Ministries were the big winners. They took home the award for best overall as well as first place in the co-ed division. The BCM based their per- formance on the Lion King and had live musical accom- paniment. The winner in the women ' s division was Alpha Delta Pi. Their perfor- mance, " Steppin ' Out, " was based on the Broadway musical " Sweet Charity. " Second place in the women ' s division went to Phi Mu. They presented a routine with a Jungle Book theme. In the men ' s division. Phi Gamma Delta fraternity took first with a rendition of the Happy Days theme. Sigma Alpha Epsilon fin- ished behind them with a tribute to the Beatles. Other participants included Alpha Gamma Delta who chose The Little Mermaid as their theme. Kappa Alpha Psi performed the " Peace and Harmony " cane step. Sigma Chi paid tribute to the Blues Brothers. Zeta Tau Alpha went retro with their tribute to the 1970s, " Stayin ' Alive in ' 95. " Step Sing has always been one of the most antici- pated events of the spring semester. Students, parents, and faculty alike fill Norton to view the always enter- taining competition. This, combined with the money raised for United Way, ensures that Step Sing will be around for manv voars. ' An Incredible Feeling A POWERFUL FINISH.

Parlcer, who is a native of Waterloo and a senior majoring in elementary education and English, was astonished and thrilled to win both titles. She said, " Wiruiing both positions was just incredible. I have felt very blessed this fall. " Winning Miss UNA was a long-time goal for Parker who said, " 1 have watched the Miss UNA pageants for many years because my brother went to school here . . . another reason that 1 started entering pageants was to overcome some of my shyness, but the scholarship money that is awarded is also a great benefit of being in the pageant. " Parker has always been active on campus through her participation in LaGrange Society, Gamma Beta Phi, the Lionettes, and Collegiate Singers. Her activities have continued to expand due to her titles which have allowed her to represent the campus in a very positive way. Parker wishes to " hard to use my position to represent UNA in the best way that I can. " She also said, " As Miss UNA, I just want to encourage others to live for God and to let him be the center of our lives. " The other winners of the evening included Kristi Steele, who was awarded first runner-up; Melanie Hargett received second runner-up honors while the third runner-up position went to Suzanne Yeager. The swimsuit award was given to Parker, and the talent award was given to Melanie Hargett. The first competition of the pageant was the evening wear competition. While the contestants appeared on stage dressed in elegant for- mal wear, they also stated their platform. Parker ' s plat- form is " . . . that language skills are the keys to success. Language skills can help you write and communicate effec- tively in that those skills can help everyone promote the thought process and effective interaction in small groups of people. " The talent competition is an important part of the pageant which is fun for the contestants and was an enjoyable experience for everyone who attended the pageant. Parker sang one of her favorite songs titled, " Someone Up There Loves Me " by Sandi Patty. Parker said, " I really enjoyed singing. I feel like this is a fun song and it has a good message. The song tells us that we are not alone and God is always with us and watching over us. " Talent winner Melanie Hargett gave a powerful per- formance by singing " I Am Changing. " The interview competition was held before the pageant and is a favorite of this year ' s winner. Parker said, " I really liked the interview segment. The interview gives the judges an opportunity to get to know all of the girls on a personal level. " The excitement that was felt during the pageant will continue as Parker competes in June at the Miss Alabama pageant. Parker said, " I am really excited about going to Miss Alabama. I am working on my commu- nity service by reading books to children at local schools and by speak- ing at local schools about being Miss UNA. Being in Miss Alabama is truly a great opportunity. I will do my best to represent the university and the community.

The 1995 SOAR was another roar- ing success. SOAR consisted of seven different sessions through- out the summer in which prospective freshmen were introduced to every aspect of life on this campus. The theme this year was " Sail Away with SOAR. " " I will always remember SOAR, " said freshman Sandra Pabon. " 1 had a great time shaking it on the dance floor and mak- ing tons of new friends. " The first day of SOAR began at 8:30 a.m. with the check-in procedures for the prospective stu- dents. After a few minutes of getting acquainted with their roommates, the stu- dents were off to start their session. It began with welcomes, ice break- ers, and pictures. After lunch, the students were off again to meet with their advisers. Dinner was followed with entertain- ment by the SOAR cabaret and a dance in the Guillot University Center. Cara Dawn Byford, SOAR counselor, said " The dance is one of the most also performed " Saturday Night Live " to inform incoming freshmen about intramurals. Finally, the students got to register and go home with a fall schedule and with less confusion about the upcoming year. l will always remember SOAR« I had a great time shaking it on the dance floor and making tons of new friends -freshman Sandra Pabon enjoyable parts of SOAR because students are allowed to let their barri- ers down and get a feel for what life will be like on campus. " The students then retired to their dorms to get some well- deserved sleep. The second day started with breakfast, followed by a skit performed by the SOAR counselors. The mini-play was a spoof on the game show, Hollywood Squares, which featured such " celebrities " as Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman; country star Tracy Lawrence; and Barbara from " Coffee Talk. " They SOAR counselors did a great job assisting the incoming students. Counselors started preparing early in the spring to get ready for SOAR. All of their hard work paid off in an impressive experience for incoming freshmen. Christi Simpson said all the hard work was worth it. " Though it takes a lot of hard work and time, being a SOAR Counselor is tons of fun. The best part is forming mentor relationships with the SOARees. " Greg Engle, director of student life, believes that by Keith Newberry SOAR is a valuable pro- gram. " 1 think SOAR helps our incoming students by giving them a head start on the whole freshman year experience, especial- ly those that are coming in from high school set- tings. College life is a little different from high school in that you have to do a lot of things for yourself, like scheduling classes. " Incoming stu- dents who are not from the Shoals area are especially helped by SOAR, " Engle said. " Trying to get used to the campus environ- ment, especially for those students who aren ' t used to Florence, is hard. It ' s a great orientation for them in the summer so that, when they do come back in the fall for that hectic first week of classes, they already have a schedule and an idea of whore they need to go and what they need to do. They ' re really more prepared when they get here. " Engle said the bottom line is this: " Those stu- dents who do not go through the orientation typically tell us that they wished they had. " 2 1 SOAR Culture Shock 1. r ' 1. Hl ' •• - " , » ■1 SOAR 25 Etched in Stone On December 9, 1995, a better-than-capacity crowd filled Braly Municipal Stadium to overflow- ing in order to watch the Lions attempt a feat which had never before been accomplished in NCAA history. The entire country was able to join the crowd on ESPN as the Lions tried to capture an unprecedented third straight NCAA Division II Championship. To get to this point the Lions won 41 games in three years, a feat never accom- plished in the history of football. Records were smashed every time the Lions took the field. This year ' s 23-game winning streak was second only to Division I powerhouse Nebraska. At the time of the Championship Game, the Lions had won 40 games in a row against Division II opponents, with their only loss in 3 years coming 17-14 to defending Division 1-AA Champion Youngstowm State in 1994. The Lions have been ranked Number 1 in Division II in the last 27 consecutive polls dating back to October 4, 1993. The success of the team was a direct result of the combined efforts of all the individual players who dramatically stepped up their game. Although every Lion made contributions to the team ' s success, there were individuals whose exploits made them legends. The offense was a powerful force this year. The first team included four players named to the 1995 All- American team. Consistently leading the offense was senior quarterback Cody Gross, whose quickness and agility earned him a permanent place in the histo- ry of UNA Athletics. Gross is not only the win- ningest starting quarterback ever for UNA, but he took home several other honors as well. Among them was the record for touchdowns scored by an individual. Gross wrapped up his career at UNA with an incredible 40-2 record as a starter. The Purple Swarm defense has been consid- ered the nation ' s best for three years nmning. The Swarm included four returning All-Americans in line-backers Ronald McKinnon and Keith Humphrey and linemen Israel Raybon and Marcus Keyes. McKinnon ' s exploits included 621 tackles for his career, which helped secure him the Harlon Hill Trophy which recognizes the best player in Division II. McKinnon was not only the first UNA player to win the award, but also the first ever defensive player to win. Although the Lions will be losing 19 seniors including 1 1 starters this year, there is already talk of another National Championship. It can be done. There are still many veterans in the ranks. Because of UNA ' s style of play, the second and third teams have gained a lot of experience. It ' s ' nlirely possible thai come the second week in f ' ptember, the Lions will once again be in the [lotlight, attempting to continue their legacy. TOUCHDOWN!

Forrest Gump also received the Oscar for Best Picture. Tragedy struck on April 19 with the bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Students on campus sat in disbelief as all eyes were turned to the televisions in the University Center. With the long-awaited end of the Major League baseball strike, the beginning of sum- mer once again meant the return of the Great American Pastime. Stars like Jim Carrey, Tom Hanks, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Sandra Bullock heated up the summer with such movies as Apollo 13, Batman Forever, Clveless, Dangerous Minds, and While You Were Sleeping. In August, millions mourned the passing of Grateful Dead guitarist and founding member Jerry Garcia. Fans anxiously awaited the return of such shows as " Friends, " " ER, " " Melrose Place, " " Seinfeld, " and " The X-Files " in September. In October, the Atlanta Braves, led by the likes of Greg Maddox, David Justice, and Chipper Jones, finally realized their dream of win- ning the World Series. October also saw the end of the O.J. Simpson trial with Simpson ' s acquittal. Millions of people from all over the world tuned in for the verdict while hundreds of students viewed the outcome from the University Center. November saw growing excitement over the possible presidential candidacy of Colin Powell. It ended, how- ever, with Powell ' s surprising announcement that he would not seek the Presidency in 1996.

The dedication that is uired to be an athlete can best be described as heroic. Does anyone besides the athlete really know what it takes? It takes an unshakable inner spirit that thrives on a goal that is set by the athlete long ago. This unceas- ing goal allows thenn to dream bigger, sweat harder, play tougher, practice longer, and even believe in their own abilities more than others. The athlete finds strength through his or her courage. This courage is often unrealized until one tries out for the first team, gets taunted by an unscrupulous teammate, or shakes a mem- ber of an opposing team ' s hand and says, " Good game. " Patience is another characteristic that the athlete possesses. Without it they would not be able to survive the long hours of practice, the screams of a coach, or the pain of losing an important game. The athlete also uses patience to keep dreams alive. It is essential to the athlete to imagine themselves as the star of the team, the player who saves he game, or as one of the " Legends of the Field.

The road to greatness The Lions conclude a three-year journey into history By Jason Wommack At the beginning of the 1995 season, the University of North Alabama football team had one goal; winning a third consecutive national championship. After a long season, UNA accomplished its goal by defeating Pittsburg State 27-7 in the NCAA Division II National Championship game in Florence ' s Braly Municipal Stadium. Along the way, the Lions smashed records left and right and made history at every turn (see National Championship article on page 26 and 27). Division II National Championship Game (Dec. 9, 199.5) UNA 27, Pittsburg St. 7 Winning an unprecedented third national title seemed to come easily for the Lions as they rolled by Pittsburg State 27-7 before a freezing 1. ' S.241 fans and a national television audience at Bral ' Municipal Stadium. UNA overpowered the Gorillas, gaining 380 total yards with 249 coming on the ground. Pittsburg State, the nation ' s best rushing team, managed only 1 76 total yards, 99 yards rushing, against UNA ' s Purple Swarm defense. UNA intercepted four passes and recovered a fumble. The Lions ' decisive victory left UNA coach Bobby Wallace to admit what the rest of Division II football already knew. This is the greatest football team to ever play in Division 11, " Wallace said. " We ' ve won three straight national championships. We haven ' t had a team play us within a touch- down all year and we ' ve won 41 of 42 games. I may sound arrogant, but I want to give these guys what they deserve. " Going into the game, the Lions had several questions that were quickly answered when they took the field. The Lions ' starting quar- terback Cody Gross could barely walk the week of the game after suffering a hip-pointer against Ferris State and didn ' t start the game. Cale Manley filled in for Gross, and the Lions didn ' t miss a beat. He guided the Lions to a touchdown on UNA ' s first possession. Jermaine Roberts rumbled into the endzone from 28 yards out, capping a 76-yard drive that took five minutes off the clock. UNA ' S first drive was just a taste of things to come as UNA stormed out to a 21-0 half- time lead. Roberts scored again on a five-yard run and Michael Edwards caught a 13-yard pass from Gross for another. Gross made his first appearance of the game with 11:16 left in the second quarter, after Tyrone Bell stripped the ball from a Pittsburg State player on the Gorilla ' s 29-yard line, and hit Demetrea Shelton with a 12-yard pass. Four plays later, Roberts scored from five yards out. Gross also took the Lions on a 69-yard, 1 1- play drive with five seconds left in the first half. Pittsburg State ran only 10 plays in the third quarter, two of which were intercepted by Gerald Smith and Zack Phillips. The Gorillas tried to make a game out of (CorUinued on page 35) SU THE ACTiUN.

" NCAA Division II Playoffs, Semifinals UNA 45, Ferris State 7 The Lions stopped Ferris State 45-7 to advance to the championship game for the third straight season. UNA relied on Manley since Gross suffered a hip-pointer early in the first half, and rushed for 397 yards and four touchdowns. Ferris SUte, averaging 459 yards per game, couldn ' t even get half (209) of that against the Lions. The Bulldogs ' quarterback, Bill Love, who was a Harlon Hill finalist, threw five interceptions after having thrown only six all season. Roberts finished the game with 145 yards rushing on 17 carries. A.J. Lamar, Al Jackson, Cody Gross and Charles Hogan all had touch- down runs. Shelton and Jarius Hayes had touchdown catches. Gross played only one series and one snap, but scored on one of his winding long-distance runs to give the Lions a 7-0 lead less than four minutes into the game. Unfortunately, he suf- fered a hip-pointer on the 31 -yard run and didnt play the rest of the game. Linebacker Ronald McKinnon provided UNA wUh its next scoring opportunity when he came up with the fu t interception of Love. NCAA Division II Playoffs, quarterfinals UNA 28, Carson Newman 7 The Lions ' 28-7 victory in front of 6,349 fans marked the third straight time that Carson Newman has ended its season in Braly stadium. The Purple Swarm, which finished the reg- ular season ranked as the best defense in Division 11 in total defense, rushing defense, and passing defense, held Carson Newman to 50 yards rushing and 157 yards passing. UNA Finished the game with 408 total yards. 338 coming on the ground. The Lions ' defense held the ball for 37:07. The Lions ran the ball 55 times, passing on 10. Roberts rushed for 124 yards on 19 attempts and scored two touchdowns. Gross added 1 14 yards on nine carries. The Lions tra iled Carson Newman 7-0 and were faced with a third and four when Gross scored. He kept the option to the right side- line, cut back left, broke a tackle, spun away from another, got a few key blocks, and strolled into the end zone. Tl e touchdown was the third longest play in UNA history and it was the longest play by a quarterback in UNA history. The Lions had 1:07 left before the half when Roberts scored from eight yards out to give UNA a 14-7 lead. UNA scored on the opening drive of the second half and again with 5:28 left in the game. NCAA Diviaion II Playoffs, First-Round UNA 38, Albany State 28 The Lions used a 21 -point third quarter outburst to dispose of the Golden Rams for the second time of the season, 38-28. The defense gave up a season-high 378 yards and four touchdowns, but came up with two interceptions, one that was returned for a touchdown to give UNA a 31-14 lead. The Lions trailed at the half, but opened the second half with a scoring drive to Uke the lead back. Gross hit Edwards with a 52- yard completion on the second play of the drive and Roberts scored to give UNA the lead. Albany State cut the score to 31-21 eariy in the fourth quarter, but UNA scored again in 18 seconds. Albany SUte ' s final touchdown came against UNA ' s reserves. Regular Season UNA 38, Arltansas Tech 3 UNA finished its second regular season in three years with a perfect 10-0 record by snuffmg out Arkansas Tech 38-3.

Henderson State scored a touchdown with 48 seconds left in the game, causing panic in the 6,064 fans in Braly Stadium. The Lions rolled up 421 yards of total offense, 216 of that from Lamar. But the defense allowed 318 yards, 158 of that on the ground. Henderson State had 160 passing and 158 rushing which kept the Purple Swarm on its toes. Lamar and Gross, who had 100 yards rush- ing, each had two touchdowns for UNA. The Lions managed 19 yards passing. UNA 28, Central Arkansas 7 Both the offense and the defense scored two touchdowns in UNA ' s 28-7 victory over the Bears. All-American Marcus Keyes sacked the Bears ' quarterback, causing a fumble which bounced into the arms of Reginald Ruflin who went to the endzone for UNA ' s first points. UNA tackle Isreal Raybon blocked a Bears ' punt and covered it in the endzone for the defense ' s second touchdown of the day. The offense, which gained a season low of 218 total yards, ended the first half with Roberts scoring. Manley scored for the offense ' s second touchdown. UNA 34, West Georgia 19 Tlie Braves took the game to the Lions ' but came up on the short end of a 34-19 score. West Georgia had UNA on the ropes and near- ly had the Lions down 21-7, but UNA respond- ed to take a 14-13 lead into half time.

The Lions scored on all three possessions of the third quarter to put the game out of reach. UNA finished the game with 305 yards rushing and 107 yards passing while giving up 146 total yards.

PootbaU37 yi lnning is the name of the game Baseball Team has an impressive year By Jay Giannatos The 1995 Lions finished the season on a high note, taking home three titles. The Lions were Gulf South Conference East-Division Champions, Gulf South Conference Tournament Runners-up, and NCAA Division II South Central Runners-up. One important aspect that attributed to the team ' s success is their spirit. Freshman Matt Harper said, " It was the best teaim as far as unity goes that I have ever played for. " The team got off to a 7-7 start, but finished the season by winning 36 of their last 44 games. At one point in the season, the Lions were ranked fifth in the NCAA Division II Baseball Poll. Senior David Shelton of Kansas City, Kansas, put on an impressive show dur- ing the season. Shelton set a new NCAA Division II record for consecutive stolen bases with 60. His streak began on March 26, 1994, with a stolen base dur- ing a game against West Georgia College. Shelton added two more that season in a game against Lincoln Memorial. In 1995, he stole 57 straight to run his record to 60. The streak finally ended when Shelton was picked off against Valdosta State in the Championship Game of the GSC Tournament. Senior Jeff Foote also had a success- 38BaMball ful year. He led the GSC with a .446 bat- ting average and set a school record with 79 hits. After winning the GSC East Division Title, the Lions hosted the GSC Tournament. The winner of this tourna- ment gets an automatic bid to the NCAA Division 11 Championship. The Lions blew past West Alabama in their first game, winning 17-1. They lost against Valdosta State in their second game, however, with a 2-0 score. The team then knocked West Alabama from the tournament in its third game, winning 9-4. The Lions came roaring back to beat Valdosta State by the score of 5-2 in their fourth game. The championship came down to the wire with Valdosta State finally beating UNA 6-5 in 1 1 innings. The Lions were still selected to play in the NCAA Division II South Regional Championship, though. Pitcher Steven Quick said, " One of the best moments of the season was finding out that we made regionals, and knowing that I had the chance to play in regionals as a freshman. " After losing one game to Valdosta State, the Lions went on to beat Delta (Continued on page 40) im cUelicUl KING OF THE HILL. Pitrk«r Htevn Quirk rales t he roost from the pitcher ' s monnd.

The championship was another close one with Valdosta State coming out on top with a score of 9-8. Six members of the Lions were selected for the NCAA Division II All- South Central Region Honors in voting by the American Baseball Coaches Association. Junior First Baseman Alan Pate, Senior Outfielder Jeff Foote, and Junior Designated Hitter Darrio Green,were named to the first team of the All-South Central Region. Senior Outfielder David Shelton, Junior Pitcher Paul Rogers, and Junior Chad Hall were selected to the Second Team. Although the Lions got off to a slow start, they still finished the season with a 16-6 conference record, and an overall record of 43-15. This boosted Coach Lane ' s record at UNA to 443-182-8.

Beginning of Si new era ' 95 brings a new coach to Softball By Christy E. Hughes nN i THK KIKLD. Short ttop Lrnlpy tmorrland wait for an inronlog (rounder. Photo by Shannon WpIU. First year head coach Veronica Starr had initially thought " victory " was going to be an often used word in the Lady Lions ' vocabu- lan.-, but her predictions fell short. The Lady Lions had six returning players and nine promising newcomers. Coach Starr felt that with so much talent and experience the Lady Lions would have won more than 18 of their 43 games played. She says the low number of wins taught her something: " Experience does not win games. Heart, determination, and hard work win bail- games. " The Lady Lions began the first half of the season with only nine wins. With a long and disappointing Spring Break road trip and a record of only nine wins and 21 losses, the Lady Lions Tmally decided to get their act together. In the next few weeks, the Lady Lions won nine out of ten ballgames, and improved their record to 18 wins and 22 losses. The future was looking better for Coach Starr and her players, after finishing the regular season with two wins over soon- to-be conference champion West Alabama. The Lady Lions then traveled to the Gulf South Conference Championship in Birmingham with hopes of bringing back the title. After two long days of rain delay, the Lady Lions ended their season with a First round loss to Mississippi University for Women. Although the Lady Lions did not produce a winning season overall, several individual honors were received. Out of ten weeks of regular season play, the Lady Lions received the Conference " Hayer of the Week " Award three times — twice by junior Lesley Westmoreland, and once by freshman Christy Hughes. Amy Wolford was also named the conference " Pitcher of the Week " in March of 1995. Lesley Westmoreland led the conference in home runs with eight, four better than her closest competitor, and was also named UNA ' s " Female Athlete of the Year. " Pitcher Angle N Tilliams was tenth overall in the conference with 62 strike-outs in 23 games. Westmoreland and senior Jessica Christ were named to the All-Gulf South Conference Team, and Christ was named a two-time All-Academic team member. In team batting the Lady Lions were sixth overall in the conference with a.254 average. In pitching and fielding, the Lady Lions were seventh overall with a 3.05 ERA and a .930 fielding average. There were 854 put-outs, and 97 errors. Until now, all conference teams were eli- gible for post-season play; but, beginning in the spring of 1996, only eight of the 16 con- ference teams will participate in the confer- ence championship. The top two teams in each division and those with the next four best records will be the only teams partici- pating. In her plans for preparing for a new sea- son with new rules. Coach Starr hopes to recruit more pitchers, players who special- ize in certain positions, and power hitters. Coach Starr expresses her outlook on fast- pitch Softball this way: This game is won on offense, not defense. Defense only wins when it comes to basketball.

The 1994-95 Lions added to the bas- ketball program ' s solid reputation with another quality season. The Lions went 20-8 and won the GSC East Division Title. They advanced to the Division II South Regional for the second year in a row and for the ninth time since 1977. The season began with the annual First Federal Pepsi Tip-Off Tournament. The Lions swept through the tourna- ment, gaining back-to-back victories over Hillsdale College and California (Pa.) to earn them the title. The Lions won three more games in a row before suffering their first loss of the year to Saginaw Valley State in the opening round of the Hillyard Classic at Missouri Western University. The Lions bounced back, however, with a 72-70 defeat of Angelo State in the consola- tion game. Back at home the Lions suffered a tough loss in overtime to Athens State. They had held a nine-point lead with less than a minute left in regulation. Athens State ' s comeback was a hard pill to swallow before the holidays. The Lions hit the road again after the Christmas Break, traveling to Erie, Pa., for the Poreco Cup. They won their first game but lost the title to tournament host Gannon University in overtime. The team then opened GSC play at West Florida and delivered a solid defeat to the Argonauts. The Lions lost their next game against Valdosta State to even their conference record at 1-1. Two straight victories at home against conference members Central Arkansas and Henderson State brought the Lions ' record to 10-4 overall and 3-1 in the GSC. After a road trip to Arkansas where the Lions went 1-1, the team began a five-game home stand with a win over Alabama-Huntsville. Next, the Lions lost a heartbreaker to West Georgia on a tip- in with two seconds remaining. Undaunted, the Lions responded to the loss by winning their next three games to close out the home stand. The team then traveled to West Georgia and handed the Braves a 74-45 defeat. A two-point win over Lane College brought the Lions to 17-6. The Lions won their next three games to close out the regular season at 20-6 overaU and 1 1-3 in the GSC. UNA was host for the GSC Tournament but lost in the opening round to Mississippi College. This was the first post-season game the Lions had ever lost in Flowers Hall. (Continued on page 48) THREADING THE NEEDLE.

With only one starter and three lettermen return- ing from the previous year, no one was really sure what to expect. However, ( oach (Jary Elliott was confident. " 1 fe( l good about the make-up of this team and 1 think it will be one of the most exciting teams we have had in a long tim(% " he said in an interview at the beginning of the season. F]lli()tt also said that the team would be looking to All-CJSC and All-Region Outer Harris Lender for leadership. " Harris has proven himself, " Elliott said. " He has tremendous leadership abilities. " The season got started on a high note. The Lions won the first game of the First Southern Tip-Off Tournament 97-79, but lost by two points to Texas A M Kingsville in the championship game. The game did prove that Harris I ndor was ready for a leadership role since he stepped forward as the lead- ing scorer and rebounder in the game. The Lions bounced back with an 82- 77 win at Delta State on Nov. 20. Then they were given a scare by Faulkner University before coming away with a 93-86 overtime victory. December was good to the Lions. Although they lost to Indiana (Pa.) on Dec. 2, they next began a six-game winning streak with a 91-74 defeat of Hillsdale. Delta State, Athens State, Martin Methodist, and Baptist Christian all fell to the Lions in good order. On Jan. 6, the Lions reached the (CorUiniuid on page 50) AN AERIAL ASSAULT.

At this point, UNA was tied for 2nd place in the GSC East Division with West Georgia. The team ' s success came from differ- ent areas than Coach Elliott had first thought that it would. " We have a lot of quickness this year; and when the year began, we felt like we could put on a lit- tle more full court pressure and maybe press a little more, but this team is turning into a really good half-court defensive team. " He added, " We change (our style of play] very little from year to year. We try to recruit to the way we want to play, but I believe you have to play by the type of players you have. Just because you ' re dead-set on playing one way, I don ' t believe you can play that way every year no matter who you have. You have to direct your style of play to the type of talent that you have. " Success is success, no matter at what tempo it is achieved. The Lions were given confidence by their impressive record and had great expectations for the rest of the season. Coach Elliott put it this way. " This team has the greatest desire to win and hates to lose worse than any team that I can remember ever having here. There are a lot of new players on this team, but they ' re developing a good chem- istry. They ' ve gotten better and better as the year has gone on, and 1 think they ' ll continue to do that.

Reaching out for viaory The Lady Lions strive to improve By Matt Pettus and Allison Stack For the Lady Lions, the 1995-96 sea- son was a chance to concentrate on gaining invaluable on-court experience. This season of women ' s basketball was not the most-winning in the university ' s history, but the players were dedicated to the team. The players warmed up for the sea- son by practicing two to two and a half hours, six days a week. The team looked forward to making a fresh start after last year ' s injury- plagued season, in which the Lady Lions struggled to a disappointing 7-19 finish. However, because of all the injuries, the team ' s four freshmen were pressed into starting roles and rose to the occasion. All of them returned for the ' 95-96 season. One of the returning players was LaConger Pegues. Pegues was named Gulf South Conference East Freshman of the year last season. In addition, she was the GSC ' s second leading scorer with an average of 19 points a game. Laura Beth Roberts was anxious to get back on the court after her season was ended prematurely due to a disap- pointing ankle injury on January 5 last year. Kim Jennings and Michelle T itt were the other two returnees. Both emerged as starters last season, and they were sure to be valuable assets to the Lady Lions in ' 95-96. During pre-season practice. Coach Wayne Byrd had a positive outlook for his 13th season with the Lady Lions. He said, " For the most part, we ' ve had some good practices. This is a group that really works hard. " The team ' s first game was on November 18 in Louisville, Kentucky, as part of th e Bellarmine Tournament. Unfortunately, the UNA lost 65-69 to Armstrong State. The team then lost its next four games before snapping the losing streak with a convincing 83-71 defeat of Bethel. The next game ended in a four-point loss to Delta State. The Lady Lions bounced back with a 92-88 victory over David Lipscomb. Yolanda Leslie did her best to keep the Lady Lions ahead of Lipscomb by scoring a whopping 30 points.

(Continued from page 53) A heart-breaking three-point loss to Bethel College occurred on December 9 in front of the home crowd at Flowers HaU. UNA dropped their next four before bouncing back on January 15 with a decisive victory over West Alabama win- ning 97-75. UNA took the lead early with the aid of five players who reached double figures. Dorinda Gober was the leading scorer with 21 points. Michelle Tutt followed close behind with 19 points, which was a career high point for her. Despite the inclement winter weath- er, the Lady Lions met Lincoln Memorial at Flowers Hall. This game saw the comeback of Yolanda Leslie who led the team in scoring with 17 points. The night ended in disappoint- ment for UNA, however, because they lost by 13 points. The Lady Lions roared back with a vengeance on January 22 with a 118-59 thrashing of West Georgia at home. Every team member saw playing time in a game that saw the Lady Lions break 100 points for the first time since the ' 91-92 season. Yolanda Leslie led once again with 31 points and five others scored in double digits. At this point, the season was looking up for the Lady Lions who were gaining in confidence and experience (Editor ' s Note: At press time, the women ' s basketball team had not yet completed its season play.)

Strong Competitors Golf team fairs well in tournaments By Matthew Spalding The golf team performed well in tour- nament competition for the 1995 sea- son, with strong finishes in the team and individual competitions. This season, the team ' s accomplish- ments included finishing second in the David Lipscomb Invitational with a team score of 612. The team divided in two to play for its own UNA Golf Classic held at Joe Wheeler State Park in March. The Purple Team placed first with a team score of 621. The Gold Team finished four strokes behind at 625 to come in third overall. The team then went on to finish sev- enth with a score of 932 in the Port Armor Intercollegiate Golf Tournament In Greensboro, Georgia. Next was a third place finish in the Gulf South Conference Golf Championship in April. The team scored 895 at this competition held at the Bent Brook Country Club in Bessemer, Alabama. This was followed by a score of 903 and a tie for fifth place at the Southeastern Collegiate Tournament at the Valdosta Country Club in Valdosta, Georgia in April. In May, junior Al Hay of Glasgow, Scotland, was one of only five individu- als invited to play in the NCAA Division II Men ' s Golf Championships at Cedar Creek Golf Club in Aiken, South Carolina. He finished fourth in the indi- vidual competition with a score of 297. Hay was only the eighth player in UNA history to play at the championships, and the first to be invited since 1987. Several of the Lions earned individual honors. Al Hay earned several. He was named to four All-Tournament teams and was a medalist in the UNA Spring Classic. He was also named Most Valuable Player and was a First-Team All American. In addition to Hay, Mark Fletcher and Mike Harwood were named to the UNA Spring Classic All- Tournament Team. Rob Doucette was named the Most Improved Player. The fine individual efforts of the Lions paid off in the end. The team fin- ished the season with a successful 54- 29-1 record, which placed them third in the GSC. TEEING OFF. Mark Aubrey-Flplcher drives on( down the fairway. Photo by Shannon Wells.

The men ' s tennis team had an impres- sive season this spring. They finished with a 16-7 record overall and third in the Gulf South Conference. In addition, they were an NCAA Division 11 South Regional par- ticipant. The Lions got off to a great start, win- ning their first three matches. The Lions experienced their first loss on March 9, losing to Erskine 3-4. The team was undaunted however, and responded to the loss by winning their next three matches. They were then defeated by Ouachita Baptist in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, on March 17. The Lions returned home to face Freed- Hardeman University on May 21. The Lions ' win of this match began a five- match winning streak that was ended by a loss to Valdosta State on May 31. The Lions split their next two matches, losing the first to Jacksonville State, but winning the next match against West Georgia. The Lions lost again to West Florida but won their next two matches. The Gulf South Conference Tournament began on May 22 at home. The Lions ' first match of the tournament was against Alabama-Huntsville. The team won this match 4-0. The doubles pairs of Stefan Rainer Robert Styles and Joakim Hansson John Shelley contributed to the victory by winning their matches. In singles Stefan Rainer, Robert Styles, and Erik Andersson also defeated their opponents. The Lions were defeated in the semifinals by West Florida, but defeated West Alabama to secure a third place finish. The Lions finished third in the two-day tournament, but their season was not over yet. On May 6, the Lions made their first appearance as a team in the NCAA Division II Tournament. The team trav- eled to Savannah, Georgia, for the South Region Tournament. Unfortunately, the Lions were put out in the first round by use Spartanburg. The first round loss was disappointing for the Lions, but with such talent to draw on, they will undoubt- edly be back. In fac t, several individual honors were received by members of the team. Mark Jonsson and Hans Jansson made the All Gulf South Conference team. John Shelley received the GSC Sportsmanship Award. Stefan Rainer made the All-GSC Academic team. In addition. Coach Larry Thompson was named GSC Co-Coach of the year. A 16-7 record is impressive in any- body ' s book. The liuns can look back on the spring with pride, and forward to the future with anticipation. TnoiiaSt Working to be the best Lady Lions work to improve their record By Allison Stack LOOKING TO THE SKY. TVacy Osborne reach, to knock the ball back to the competition. Pho by Shannon Wells. The 1995 Lady Lions Tennis Team returned to the courts with much anticipa- tion for the season ahead. Although there were some losses, the team worked on their overall record from last season ' s 5-16 to a much improved 10-13. During the season, the team traveled to thirteen out of twenty matches, and conse- quently the team spent much time togeth- er. Sophomore Kelly Mason said, " 1 feel that as a team we got along really well being that we were on the road to so many matches all season. " The young team ' s season began with an away victory by defeating West Georgia College 6-1. Then the team was set back by a loss to Mississippi University for Women. At the South Regional things started out slowly with a loss to Lander College. Later the team came together and defeated Columbus College and Augusta College, but South Regional ended in a dis- appointing 1-4 loss to Francis Marion. The Lady Lions proceeded to win sever- al difficult matches on the home courts fol- lowed by five matches on the road which all ende d in defeat. On Ai)ril 5, the women turned their losing streak around with a win over Montevallo. At the end of April, the L . ' ly Lions trav- eled to the Gulf South ' onference Tournament in Huntsville, Al. una. In the first singles match, Kelly Man, i riefeated her opponent 6-0, 6-0. Kim Peterson fol- lowed suit with a win over the competition 6-2, 6-0. Next, Heather Hodges kept the pace up with a 6-0, 6-0 win. The doubles rounds resulted in both Peterson Hodges and Prescott Osborne winning their matches 8-1,8-1. These all led to the Lady Lions capturing the match over Mississippi College. The team went on to lose their next two matches at the GSC, but finished with a 4-2 win over West Alabama. The women ' s tennis team finished sev- enth in the GSC out of twelve teams. This may not be the highest ranking, but it is impressive considering the opponents that the team faced. Shannon Sledge feels that the team " ...chose to play the best teams that we could so that we would be a better team for it. " The respectable season was not without its share of problems. Kim Peterson was unable play during the fall season because of illness, but she was able to return during the spring and make it back to the number two ranking on the team. The Most Valuable Player for the season was Heather Hodges while Shannon Sledge picked up the Most Improved Player award. The Lady Lions Tennis Team worked to improve their season as they battled some of the South ' s finest tennis teams. RIGirr BA ;K to you.

Sophoaorr Brand! nnington jump ap to apikr tke ball while b W)«nrki paasea to watck. Pkoto bjr ' " tophpr Rohling. The 1995 season brought a change to the face of volleyball as the team came under the leadership of a new head coach. Matt Peck had coached at Wayne State in Michigan for 11 years before making the move to UNA. Peck had a 231-135 record at Wayne State, and was expected to rebuild a program here that had enjoyed only three winning seasons in the last six years. He had a decent foundation with which to start, with seven players returning from the 19-18 team of 1994. Two of these were seniors: Jenny Blasingame and LaDonna Bradford. " Our two seniors did real well for us. They were able to make the changes they needed to make, and both of them really helped us a lot the whole season, not only playing-wise, but also by supporting us and having good attitudes, " said Peck. There were seven newcomers to the team in ' 95, including four freshmen and three transfers. The efforts of the old hands and the new arrivals combined to produce a respectable record. The Lady Lions flnished the season with 21 wins and 20 losses. In the GSC Tournament, the team made it to the finals in the winner ' s bracket where they lost to Henderson State. The team then lost to Alabama-Huntsville to Hnish third overall. TVo of the players earned individual hon- ors. Junior Toby X[ r8ocki made the All-GSC Tournament as did Senior Jenny Blasingame. Wysocki also made the All Conference Team. Coach Peck looks back on his first season here positively. " I was pleased with how things turned out at the end. It was a diffi- cult situation coming in here (without doing my own recruiting], but I ' d say we did well. " The players had positive feelings about the season as well. " Although our record wasn ' t that great, we still got third in the GSC Tournament and we ' re going to work even harder to do better next year, " said team member Andrea Hagood. Peck sees a bright future ahead for the Lady Lions. " I thii k the addition of one or two more really talented kids will help us a lot. I foresee that, if we get the recruits that we ' re after, we could win the conference next year and possibly go on to the NCAA Tournament. That ' s ideally what our goal is. That ' s what we ' re striving for this year: to make the steps toward that direction. " Peck says that he is glad to be at this uni- versity though he admits being the new guy was tough. " It was a little more difHcult than I thought it was going to be. I didnt know what we were going to have or any- thing like that. I do things a lot differently than the previous coach did and some of the kids had a hard time adapting to that. But for the most part, I ' d say the majority of them really responded well. We had our days where nothing was going right, but I th we really turned a comer at the end and made some real progress toward v uit we want to do next year. " " It ' s great here. The campus is beautiful. There are good academics and a fine athlet- ic program. People are so friendly and help- ful here. It will be so much easier recruiting to this place than to urban Detroit. This school just has a lot to offer. I think it ' s a real attractive school, not only to kids from Alabama, but to those from out of state also. " VotlertMll 63 Running for the pleasure of it The Cross Country Team relies on individual motivation By Matt Pettus and Allison Stack Motivation is the key to long-distance running. A runner has to be able to look through miles and miles of pain and keep his or her eyes on the prize. This season ' s cross country team learned a lot about motivation this year. Both the men ' s and women ' s teams were comprised of only four members each. Because of this, they were not allowed to score officially at meets (since five runners are required for a team to place). Therefore, the runners were nmning for individual satisfaction for most of the year. Cross country members are required to participate in a demanding practice schedule. The runners have to put in two runs a day. The first is at six in the morning and the next is in the after- noon between two and three. Surprisingly, training for cross country involves more than just running. It means cross training, which is done in the off-season. Lifting weights and swimming are a major part of this rigor- ous routine. But practices usually consists of the fundamental of cross country — running. " Running is just a part of most sports, the part people hate. But at our prac- tices, that ' s all we do, " said Cherina Rice. Meets are held on the weekends. For the men, that usually means a lOK, which is 6.2 miles. The women usually run a 5K, which is 3.1 miles. Eventually, however the team was able to compete for more than bragging rights. For the Gulf South Conference meet in Clinton, Miss., the men ' s and women ' s teams each recruited one run- ner so they would have enough runners to compete officially. Out the 20 teams represented, the men finished 6th and the women finished 9th. Coach Sherry Kennemer was proud of the dedication her runners put in and gave an example. " Brittnea Horton worked hard all summer and went from being our Number 6 runner last year to being our Number 1 runner most every week this year. " Kennemer said that she was satisfied with the team ' s performance under the circumstances (considering the severe injuries and small teams). " Next year, almost every one ' s coming back. We ' re only losing one senior. With a good recruiting year, things should look up. " M CroM Conntry Qno4A. GcmmI PRACTICING NO MATTER HUAT.

" How many times have we heard a sports announcer say that? Keeping the crowd into it is the responsibility of the cheerleaders, ind they take it seriously. Being a cheerleader requires dedication. They have to commit to practicing three times a week. Even with this schedule, they are expected to keep their grades up. Cheerleaders have to maintain a 2.25 GPA on a 4.0 scale. They also must commit to staying within a weight limit which is deter- mined based on their height. The commitment doesn ' t stop there. The men are required to pass a strength test. This means they must be able to military press 135 pounds three consecutive times, in addition, all the cheerleaders are required to sign a statement that no organi- zation will take precedence over cheerlead- ing practice. This is a necessity because of the difficulty of learning cheerleading rou- tines. Kelly Holden says that cheerleading takes up a lot of time but that it ' s worth it. " I had to quit my job at Rogers Department Store when school started. There ' s no way I can work and cheer at the same time. But cheering has been great. I ' ve made a lot of friends and all the games have been excit- ing, especially the Championship Game. " The cheerleaders are divided into two squads. In the spring, the football cheer- leaders are chosen for the next fall season. In the fall, the basketball cheerleaders are selected. This year, the football cheerieaders were further divided into a Varsity and Junior Varsity squad. The JV ' s shared all the responsibilities of the Varsity cheerleaders except that they didn ' t travel to away games or have to cheer with the men. In this way, the JV squad helped to bridge the gap between high school and college level cheerleading. JV Captain Allison Ayers said, " Being a part of the JV Squad gave me the opportunity to learn how to stunt with the male cheerleaders. In high school, I had never stunted with guys, and this gave me the chance to learn with less pressure. " The athletic hostesses have the responsi- bility of greeting people who attend any sporting event at the university. They also have the responsibility of entertaining out- of-town guests and visiting teams. A prospective hostess must pass through an interview before being awarded the job. For the Championship Game, a group of approximately 40 NCAA Hostesses was selected. Half of these were assigned to UNA and the other half to Pittsburgh State. The hostesses that were assigned to Pittsburgh State met the team at the airport and the hotel and answered any questions that they had. The hostesses also accompa- nied the teams to a banquet and to area schools where the players spoke to stu- dents. Hostess Cindy Heath said, " I really eiyoyed being an NCAA Hostess. It was a wonderful experience and I would recom- mend it to anyone. " This university ' s sports program is top of the line. Getting to the top requires a lot of effort from many different people. The cheerleaders and hostesses contribute much to this campus, and sporting events would not be the same without them. KPING HER EYES ON THE COLET.

This university has a wide variety of sports and games that are avail- able to both students and faculty through the intramural program. Intramurals pro- vide something for everyone. Though many teams represent campus organizations, teams of independents are also welcome. Although intramurals create an atmos- phere of fierce competition, they also pre- sent an opportuiuty to make lasting friend- ships; perhaps this is why they are so popu- lar. Intramurals kick off in the fall with the ever-popular sport of softball. After putting in hours of sweat-filled practices, the teams get to show what they ' re made of in direct competition with their peers on the softball diamond. There are many sports offered to stu- dents besides softball. Flag football, which strips most of the violence from the game, is always popular. Three-on-three basketball, of course, always attracts a lot of players from different organizations. For people who like their sports less intense, ping-pong and bowling give them a way to get out their aggressions without breaking too much of a sweat. There are those who prefer intellectual competition. For them, there are always such games as Trivial Pursuit and Spades. Trivial Pursuit gives one the satisfaction of being able to look across the table and say, " I am smarter than you. " After a well-rested Christmas break, intramurals begin again. For the outdoorsman, a backpacking trip is sponsored by the Office of Student Life which is in charge of intramurals. It begins early on a Friday morning and continues through Sunday. Regular five-on-five bas- ketball begins in the spring. It can get rough, but it always attracts a crowd of spectators. Men and women alike fight until the final buzzer to be awarded the honor of victory. Volleyball, soccer, and tennis are the other spring competitions. Like the fall, spring offers a sport for every taste. Intramural sports offer a recreational time-out that allows participants to relieve the pressures of academic life. But they are also a great way to have fun. UP TO BAT. Dana Wimberly waite on her pitrli during an intramural Hoftball game. Plioto by Allison Stack. 68 Intramurals ONE.

Noticing tlie person ' s shoes wlio is Isitting beside you is one of them, but it is certainly not the most important. Some of the observations will be of your classmates. These classmates will be remem- bered for years to come as the people who you smiled at daily, complained with jabout unbelievably hard tests, and even sometimes studied with in the library. Your classmate relationship is much like that of being shipwrecked with people piat you do not know. At first, the relationship is stilted, then it eases as you get to know each other Later, you find yourself chat- ting with them before class and comparing notes with them. It is at this point that you and your fellow classmates realize that you are in the same boat together. The bond of having a class together is unique i.U! l (.

But Stuan Rice is. in fact, ;ui excellent |)lay- er, ha ing won prize money in several tournaments. Rill ' le;inu l to play chess at an early agiv " My dad taught me ko play when I was stnen so we ' d have something to do togeth- er besides just throwing baseball and stuff. " That seed his Eather hail planted didnt produce immediate results, though; and. as Stuart got older, chess wasn ' t exactly the focus of his Ipxistence. I was more into sports, like running and tennis in high school. " he said. Rice was actually a pretty fair athlete, winning [he S«H-tionaJ Tennis Chamftioiuihip in his senior year at Brooks ligh Sch K l. It w;is after high si-hool that Rice began to take chess seri- busly. " ( )nce I got to college. I wasn ' t playing sports anymore so took up chi ss again. " he said. Jiice soon found that chess pro ndes sonte of the sante rewards as athletics. " Chess lets you iatisfy that primitive urge to go out and destroy something nthout actually hurting anybody. " he said. In 19JJ4. Rice ' s " pro- ■« ssional career " began when he entered his first tournament, Hunt5 ille Fall .Swiss Tournament at I ' AII. Touniaments are what separate the men from the boys in the chess world, because rankings are determined solely by tourna- ment perforniance. Rankings in chess carry about the same weight as they do in tennis, since invitational tournaments kwk only at a player ' s ninking. Players with unimpressive rankings don ' t even get considered. Toumaments are always a gamble. You cjm climb to the top of the heap, but its easy to dig yourself into a ver ' deep hole. The higher your opponent is ranked, the more that is at stake. If you defeat a high-ranked player, your rating soars — if you losi ' to a low-rated opponent, it sinks like a stone. On lop of this is the fact that tournaments can last up to four days. Naturally, the stress c;u) become unbearable. " My nerves got the best of me at that first tournament. 1 lost ;U1 four games, " said Rice. Since then. Rice ' s skills have steadily improviHl, and his wins have begun to add up. He plans on continuing that trend long into the future. " My dream is to become a master some day, but my inunediate goal is just to become a consistently giKxi play- er " Rice said. By Matt Pettus CONCENTRATION IS THE KEY.

" all the struggle ai (! pain of college will begin to fade into the background. The bad memories will start to recede one by one, and will be replaced by those of the peo- ple you met ;uul the good times you had. College diH s have its share of stmggles, tliough. Remember all those times you had to pull an all-nighter to get ready for a test you had at eight the next mon ing? Will you miss that fc el- ing of the anifici;il exc-itement that ' ivarin gives you before it wears off and leaves you sleepier than you ' ve ever been in your life? How alK)ut all the times a computer refused to print out your tenn pa( er that was due in the next class? These are not the things you will remember If you do they will go through that magical transformation which turns miser- able experiences from your past into stories that you will laugh- ingly lell your grandchildren about. What you will remember are the great times — how college makes you feel alive. You ' ll remember that chill in the air which a! " (1 the start of football season. You ' ll recall how yu ars were the first time you broke out of your parents ' mold and started building a life Un iiiii. .» ' ir. Voull think of the first time somebody actually issued you a credit CiUCl. Some of you will remember meeting the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. Engagement rings are a fixture on the college campus ;ls is married student housing. Ciraduation mtu-ks both an c-nd and a beginning. It symbolizes the end of any sense of irresponsibility one might have left. No longer will you he called a student. No longer will there be teachers or professors to guide you in your decisioits. Now, you will be expected to take your place among scx " iety as an equal partner. Graduation, then, marks the start of the rest of your life. It ' s a time when people start thinking about having families and set- tling down. Soon, you will be heading into what may well be a life-time career. These are some incredible changes. The ceremony offers an incredible time for refiection. What have you learned from 16 years of education? What will you do with that knowledge? Graduation also often produces an inc-redible sigh of relief. It ' s finally over, but something totally new is about to begin. A PENSIVE MO.MENT.

The sport gets its name from the fatt that, as •ou " re hanging, you kick off the fai-e off the cliff iuid loosen wu " grip on the rope, which sends you plununeting down- rard until gra ity makes your ft et hit the cliff again. Titus, tHi rappel down the cliff. Townst nd started rappelling two years ago. " The first time ever rappelled wjjs from the tower here on campus as a lart of the Outdoor Education class I was taking, " he said. " I r«»t down that once, and the next thing I knew, I was out aiLL-SEEKEK. Jay Townspnd nhows oTT his rapprUinR equipmpnt Md kaa ritiojrrd rappelling for ncveral yrars. Photo by Shannon jD . with one of my fraternity hrolhers ;uul we just happened to have some equipment with us. Neither one of us really knew what we were doing, but we took off down to ( " off« e Cave, where there ' s about ;ui HO- to }K)-foot face, and rapix ' lled. " Naturally, in a sport that puts your life on the line every time out, you want to make sure you have the best equip- ment you c;ut get. Townsend sjiys he has found the essential tools to be only moderately expensive, though he hasn ' t cut any safety conters. " hi a sport like this, where there is a high risk involved, you try to get the best just to be on the safe side. I mean it ' s your life you ' re playing with. " This is certain- ly tme, especially where the rope is concerned, which, if it breaks, c;ut send you plummeting to your death, ' ' 1iat I ' ve got is a 2(K)-foot Bluewater rope which is some of the best rope you can buy, " he said. As soon as you get good at rappelling, the next step is to try to find new and challenging places to do it. " I ' ve gone up to this place in the Cumberland Recreation Area in Tennessee called the Stone Door where there ' s what ' s prob- ably about a 180-foot face. That was the first time I had ever done anything that high. Everylhing had been at least less than half that. I didn ' t have anybody down below on belay. It was very out of control. You felt kind of like a twig in the wind. You couldn ' t really jump out because it was just too scary. Once I got about halfway down, though, everything was cool. " Townsend has had his share of scary experiences, but he has no problem deciding which one was the worst. " I was at this abandoned rock quarry just norih of Birmingham. It was probably about a 110-foot face or so and it was pretty much straight down. I was going down it. and the next thing I knew, my shirt got caught in the eight ring. I was stuck. You can ' t go up juid you ciui ' t go down. I just started looking for a place where I could stand up and take some prt« sure off the rope so I could feed it up and get my shirt untan- gled. " Townsend didn ' t stop after this, though. After all, there ' s no if there ' s no fear. An addiction to the adrenaline rush is just like any other addiction. It takes more and more to give that nish to you. Town.send has found a way to make rapi)elling even more exciting. It ' s called rappelling " . ti.ssie Style. " In this, you go off fact»-first. You ' re basically miming down the face of the cliff. " It ' s fun, " he said. " You can go down sideways, front- wards, all different kinds of ways. " What ' s next. .lay. skydiving?

CImms lot Fall Play A Measurable Success The Department of Communications and Tlieatre scores anotlier liit November 9-11 brought the campus a generous helping of Shakespeare, as well as another glimpse of the abundant talent found in the University ' s Communications and Theatre Department, with the production of Measure for Measu re. " Mesur for Mesur " by " Shaxberd, " as it was Usted in the Revels Accounts in 1604, was brought to stage at Norton Auditorium by Dr. John O ' Connor, 17 university actors, and a staff of dedicated crew members. Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare ' s more obscure plays, enjoying none of the familiaiity of the ever-popular Romeo and Juliet or Macbeth. It does, however, share with many of the renowned playwright ' s w orks such timeless themes as love, lust, piety, lechery, and the moral judgement which surrounds them all. As actor Steifon Passmore said, " Though the language is centuries old, the themes are quite modem. " Lucio, the character described by Shakespeare himself as " Fantastic, " was by far the most captivating and comical of tl characters. Passmore, who gave a riveting performance £ Lucio, is a genuine veteran of the theatre departmen Grinning wickedly, he confessed his appreciation for his cha acter: " Yeah, I ' m going to miss Lucio. He ' s so deliciously low. " Amber Joly was beautiful and convincing as the aptly name bawd, Mistress Overdone. As her tapster, Pompey, Brian Peac played his comically bawdy character to the hilt, effective! employing his hilarious facial expressions. Even though newcomers to the stage, the male and femal leads. Matt Henry as the Duke and Ashley Miles as Isabella ga truly stellar performances. It is not surprising that Miss Mile was so effective in the portrayal of her pious character, esp( cially in light of her commentaiy: " I liked my character a lo She was, like, me made-over. " Many of the male actors were impressive playing multipl roles: Jeff Leide, Heath Rochester, Brian Peace, Rick Suarez, a well as Mike Reynolds. Jeff Leide was particularly endearing i his role as the ale-drinking Master Froth, and Steven Thoma performance as Bemardine, the intemperate prisoner who mai aged to be too drunk to be put to death, was exceptiona Michael Reynolds exhibited great versatility in his portrayal c two very diverse characters. He played the nitwit Constabl Elbow and the wise old gentleman Varrius with equal skil lending credulity to both personalities. The acting company included many first time performer including Ivan David Miller, Aaron Thompson, Steven Thoma! Cassie Hollis, Brian Hubbard, Heath Rochester, and Jonatha Nobles. These appear to be valuable additions to the theatr department, combining their talent with that of the more sei soned veterans. Two such familiar faces are those of Jennife Steen and Elaine Meares, whose acting abilities have bee exhibited in past university performances as well. Measure for Measure was Dr. O ' Connor ' s firs Shakespearean production, an undertaking that many director would surely consider intimidating. The production, howevei scHMued to go incredibly smoothly, and direction was cleaily tli niai k of exceptional talent. Dr. O ' Connor ' s simple yet emblem ali( set was counterbalanced by elaborate costuming, am effective lighting. He noted that, " Shakespeare and his conteiii I)orary playwrights left much to the imagination of their audi design takes advantage of many [such] conventions. Alice Gross, Norton Auditorium ' s technical adviser, is to hi complimenled on the effectual lighting design. The play ervjoyed a relatively large turnout, having an audi ence of over ()0() mentbers on opening night. P om audition: until the culmination of three evenings of perfornuxnce, Di O ' Coruior and his cast and crew spent roughly nine weeks ii intense preparation. Such diligence, along with the talent (lis played, was admired and appreciated by audiences wh( seein (l genuinely impressed by the performances, fuid indeet Willi the entir( production.

Something Different When you ' re tired of the usual — going out to eat and clubbing — you can always try some of the more unique activities Florence has to offer. You can play tennis in the park or you can try out one of the area ' s putt-putt golf courses. For the health-nut, there are several gyms in the area. And then, there is always bowling. Lauderdale Lanes on Florence Boulevard has provided a fun place to bowl for many years. If all else fails to tempt you, then for the nature-lover Uiere is no better diversion than a day at the lake. .Jet-Skiing, water-skiing, sailing, and bass fishing are some of the main attractions of the kx ' al waterwa.vs. As ou can see. the Shoals provides a little something for everylxKly to do on the weekend.

ClMMSlOS Body Art Leaving a Creative Mark Tattoos allow some students a ' Walk on the Wild Side ' Native Americans used tattoos in rites of passage. Certain African cultiues pierce their bodies with bone to make themselves more attractive. Students are doing it " just because. " " It makes a statement, " Adam, a tattoo artist for Quad Cities Tattoo, says. " Besides, it looks cool and is rebellious. " Adam is covered from wrist to wrist with a collage of tattoos, many he gave to himself Fraternity members have their Greek letters tattooed on their person to signify a loyalty that lasts a lifetime. Jason Wommack, a Sigma Chi, says, " When people comment that it will be there for the rest of my life, I tell them I will be a Sigma Chi for the rest of my Ufe. " Sports fans show the teams they root for total loyalty and admiration. Dan Sides, a sophomore majoring in marine biolo- gy, has two tattoos: one of the Miami Dolphins and another of the Auburn Tigers. " A buddy dared me to do it. He said he ' d pay for it if I got one. So I did it, and a month later I went and got another tattoo. It ' s a thrill; one that lasts a lifetime. It ' s also addic- tive, " Sides said. Engineering major Wendy Richey decorated her back with a sun and moon. " I got the tattoo because I thought it was cool. I love suns and moons. They ' re all over my apartment, " said Richey. Others have body art that symbolizes something to them. Chris Rohling, Flor-Ala photographer, has an ankle tattoo dedicated to the buffalo. " I have wanted a tattoo since I was little but I never got one. Then a friend intro- duced me to Indian rock drawings. I designed it ADIDAS FOREVER?

" Pierced body parts include navels, noses, eyebrows, tongues and lips. Adam, of Quad Cities Tattoos says, " The piercings arc just cool. I like them. " Richey also has a piercing. Her nave holds a ring. " I got my belly button done because I think it look; sexy. I ' ve also wanted it for about three years now. " Prices are not a deterrent of the body art. Navel rings cos $45 and up, tongue piercing is $90 or more and nose rings cai cost anywhere from $25 to $50. " I would have paid $100 to hav( my belly button pierced, " Richey said. Tattoos can cost thousands of dollars. Back pieces with a lo of detail require much time and ink. Smaller pieces cost any where from $25 to $200. The price depends on detail and size. Whether it ' s a tattoo or a piercing, body art is not a fading fad. Art is always changing and growing. This is one form des tined to grow and stay on the body forever.

EJetter yet. what if your part-time job were at a »eme park? Or even better, what if your job were at t]ie biggest leme park in the world, Walt Disney World? One sophomore amed . ndrea Witt fulfilled this dream by working, living, and la ' ing in one of the itiost magicjil places in the world. Witt sought the opportunity to capture this dream afler she )oke with a distiUJt relative who had worked for Disney World. was then that she was told al)out the college program that is vailable to students which gives them the opportunity to work t Disney World while earning up to nine hours credit for rhool. The program is extremely difficult to get involved with ec-ause it is so competitive 0 er 15.000 students apply every fall in order to be interviewed for the 3,000 positions that are available. There is a series of three interviews wliich involve one-on-one conversations and even 20-minute interviews over the phone. Witt was lucky enough to be selected from 200 can- didates just in Alabama for a summer job with Disney. She spent three months at Walt Disney World working as much as sixty hours a week as a cashier in the restaurant " Pinocchio ' s Village Haus " in the Fantasyland section of the Magic Kingdom. Witt said, " It was an amazing experience; I waited on people from all over the world. Sometimes conmiunication was diffi- cult, but I was taught one thing . . . the customer is always right. " Another opportunity was that Witt was able to live with four other roommates in Vistaway Condos which are made available to Disney employees for a fee. " The condos were wonderful. We had workout centers, bas- ketball courts, tennis courts, and swimming pools that were for our use. It was approximately 3,000 college students living in the same community. It was great! Everyone was so diverse, for example, take my roommates. They were from Colorado, Texas, Idaho, and Tennessee, " said Witt. Of course, Witt still keeps in contact with the friends that she made over summer. In fact, her phone bill for October was an impressive three hundred dollars. The feelings are mutual though; Witt receives letters and phone calls from her friends all the time. When Witt and her friends got the chance to have a little fun, they really etyoyed it. She said, " Running around in the park after everyone left was really fun. We couldn ' t ride tb ' ride ; but the park was so pretty wi th all of the lights still on One of her best memories of the summer was the ni);hi that the college students graduatetl and received their " Ducktrine " from the program. Witt reveals " They [Disney] closed MGM, the studios, and we danced in the streets for hours. It was fan- tastic. " The experience of working for Disney is one that Witt will eryoy again as she is working in the Magic Kingdom again at Christmas. Witt hopes to return again next summer, and possibly work with the animals on Main Street USA or work at the tropical Discovery Island. This is very exciting for Witt who is an animal lover and a pre-vet m jor. If those options do not work out. she may be dre.s.sed as a Disney character roaming the park and hugging children. Whatever she does, she is sure to love her job because she " I will l op loving Disney and wanting to visit or i k there- . y after this sunmier. " By Allison Stack KEY . ND ME.

Do you stop to chat with your friends about how long the professor talked? NO WAY! Why, you ask? You have to hurry back to your dorm room and catch the latest installment of your favorite soap opera at noon. Whether it be " Days of Our Lives, " " As the World Turns, " " General Hospital, " or even " Melrose Place, " soap operas have the undeniable ability to capture any unsuspecting college stu- dent ' s attention through their twisted plots, beautiful couples, and tough vixens. Stolen kisses, unsolved murders, love triangles, demon pos- session, and even trips back in time are some of the fascinating ploys used by soap opera writers to attract view- ers. These ploys attract not only housewives, but college students who are relaxing after their classes in the University Center or those who are grabbing a quick lunch in their dorm room. There are even some students on campus who have tried to plan their schedules around their favorite soap; or, if they cannot watch, they record it. One student who refused to be named reported that " . . .in the dorms there was an almost eerie silence on her floor while ' General Hospital ' was on. " Others often gather with friends in one domi room to view their favorite show together and sound off their opinions on what should happen to their favorite characters. Some students, however, still prefer to watch their soap alone like senior Lanna King. " I don ' t like it when people in the dorm yell at the television, and I can ' t hear what ' s being said, " she said. There is and always has been a massive following from young viewers of " soap couples " who are perfect in every way except for one minor flaw such as a bad hair day. In the 1983 Diorama soap story, students struggled with the question " Can Luke really face life without Laura? " Now, students know that Luke and Laura survived as the supercouple that is still display- ing its star quality on " General Hospital. " The mid 1980s brought Steve and Betsy together on " As the World Turns. " During the late 1980s, Bo and Hope and Patch and Kayla from " Days of Our Lives " were all the rage. Today, Austin and Kari reign as star-crossed lovers who were torn apart by their conniving siblings on " Days of Our Lives " while " General Hospital " has amassed a huge following with LISTEN CAREFULLY-This group of soap viewers demands complete silence while watch ing " Days of Our Lives.

Wendy Spivey, a sophomore, agrees that Sami is one of th most hated women on television. " She is a bad actress, and he role always causes stupid problems, " said Spivey. Opinions lik these of Sami Brady and the other " bad girls " run rampant o this campus. Watching soap operas is a strangely addictive pastime. S ' remember, the next time you are channel surfing on a lonel afternoon, you might get hooked by stopping on a channel tha has beautiful people who are wearing slightly over-the-top oul fits and are unaware of the subtle, yet dramatic music in th background. Soon, you too will be ditching friends after clas and living for an hour in a world of intrigue, deception, an( romance known as the soap opera.

Campus radio station takes to the air waves X Xou are listening to the WIJNA radio network on Cable Y Channel 15. " With these words by Station Manager JL. Kirk I ierre on April 10, twenty years of talk luid wish- til thinking beeaine reality as a ranipus radio station finally went on the air. Ironically, while )lan after plai had gone up in tmoke, a station was in the end he result of an off-hand remark )y a student in Dr. Edward • " oote ' s Conim 328 class. rogram Director Ron Lindsey xplaine l it this way: " One da ire were just talking about hou t would be nice to have a can - )us station and Dr. Foote nien- ioned the new canipus univer- rity cable system. Suddenly, it ust clicked. " The cable system was the ey, according to the news irector for the spring semester, ■ cott Rawlinson. " Getting a iwer was always the big obsta- cle. A tower is very expensive — hen there ' s the problem of get- ing an FM frequency in this irea since the airwaves are ilready so crowded. " By broad - asting over the campus cable fystem. Dr. Foote and his class masoned, they could get around he and avoid all the TC red tape. With the class low seeing the light at the end i the tunnel, their idea look off ke a rocket Eventually, according to indsey. Dr. Foote decided to eplace his usual Hnal assign- nent with work on the radio tation. " We were a pretty small clas,s and so there was a »lace for everyone. Tliere were several staff positions and ive disc-jockejrs. " After the test mn on .April 10. the station began a .s he(lulc »f five two-to-three hour broadcasts a week. The starting Toup of five DJs was given a choice of the style of music ' ' ' . which resulted in a somewhat eclectic n.

Darrell McCollum ' s show managed to combine the best of blues rock and R B, and Ryan Patterson brought the week to a close with songs from the ' 70s and ' 80s. In the fall, the station now- called ROAR Radio, was still going strong. The deejays for the fall semester were Paul llaverstick of Athens; James Hoesly of Scottsboro; David Hayes of Florence; Jennifer Johnson of Booneville, Miss.; Ronnie Lindsey of Centar Star, and Andrew Tinsdale of Grenville. Kim Spears was sta- tion manager. During the fall, the station broadcast for five hours a day (from 10 a.m. to noon and 4-7 p.m.). News was given at ten minutes before the hour and and weather was given every half-hour. Thursdays were reserved for sports with Stacy Hair, a senior from Muscle Shoals. Dr. Edward Foote of the communications department m sees the possibility of expan- sion for ROAR Radio in the future. It could become a com- mercial radio station or a public radio station. " If it has to oper- ate as a public service in the model of National Public Radio like WQPR, then we can handle that. There are advantages to commercial radio though. Actually, that is the trend even for public stations. It seems appropriate that campus sta- tions become commercial. Rf)n Lindsey is glad to be a part of the team that is laying the foundation. " It sort of feels like we ' re doing pirate radio right now since everything is sf) small-scale, but this is the beginning. " said Lindsey. " It feels nice to be in on the ground Hoor of something that ' s going to get bigger in the future.

Convocations are a strong tradition at iiany universities, and though this was only the fifth at this bchool, the event is rapidly becoming one of the cherished •ustoms that begin a new year on this ciunpus. The convocation began with a procession of faculty iressed in their acadenuc robes. The llniversity Mace was bresented by Dr. Thomas Christy. Following that. Dr. Phomas Osborne welcomed ' veryone to the ceremony. Scholarship winners and hon- rary society members were hen recognized in a ceremony •onducted by Dr. Thomas ovett. The podium was next {iven to Dr. Joseph Thomas, vho offered explanations for everal of the academic tradi- ions related to the ' onvocalion. President Robert L. Poii vearing the crimson colors o; larvard. then introduced UNA iumnus and key-note speaker, ul Hubbert, who is exe -utiv» ' ecretary of the Alabama Education Association and for- mer Democratic nominee for o emor Hubbert began by teaching: reshmen a maxim he had earned growing up in rural ' ayette County: " One ' s word is Ine ' s bond. " He told the listen- Ig students that everyone of lem had made a commitment, hethtT it was to themselves or someone, to graduate oin college. He then challeng» ' ! ilxm iv asking, " Is your rd going to be your bond? " College is a milestone in ones life, said Hubbert. The day ou signtHl your intent (to go to I ' NA) was one of the more nportant days in your life. " He encouraged students to i joy the social as| ect of life on campus, but not to forget — most important thing, which is preparing yourself for the ire. rhe most memorable moment of Hubbert ' s speech came ■n he asked everyone to stand up and look their neigh- s in the eve. He told the audience that though they all UNIVERSITY NORTH Alabama AN INSPIRATIONAL MOMENT. Paul Mubbrrt raptiNsm Uie andi- racr with hi memutfif. Photo by Shannon WpIIh. came from different backgrounds, these were their contem- poraries. Wlierever a student may come from, each is here for the same reason, and each has an injual chance to suc- ceed. " You ' re looking into the future by looking into the eyes of your class. " These will be the doctors, lawyers, and minis- ters of the future, said Hubbert. Hubbert then offered words of comfort to freshmen who might be suffering culture shock going from high schcKjl to college. " I made a 48 on my first test at Florence State, " he said. " I came from a small high school where I played football, basketball, and baseball. I thought college was going to be the same. I wouldn ' t have to study. I could just listen, and I ' d be f)kay. " The 48 was a wake-up call for Hubbert who began study- ing and asking questions of his professors. " Don ' t be afraid to ask for help. Your professors are willing to assist you, if you ' re serious about it, " Hubbert said. " If you give to this university, it will give back a hundred fold, " .said Hubbert in conclu- sion. " When I came here, 1 felt completely inadequate. 1 was afraid to even eat in a restau- rant I thought I might do something wrong. " Ten years after graduation, however, Paul Hubbert was head of the AEA. After Hubbert ' s speech, the Convocation was brought to a close with the singing of the Alma Mater and the recessional. The event was not over yet, however. After the Convocation, classes were dismissed so students could attend a picnic at the Ampliitheater. Maomi Pahman, a freshmen from Hatton, said she was impressed by the day ' s events. " Paul Hubbert ' s speech is what stands out in my mind. He was really down-to-earth and sinrere. I ' m from a niral school like he was, so I found whal he said to Im ' really in.spiring.

Citibank, Mastercard, and Visa are available... " echoes a peppy marketing representative named Chris Wilson who is standing on the floor of the University Center. These extremely friendly representatives beckon to incoming freshmen who pass them by with a wide-eyed unknowing willingness to sign their name and their closest relative ' s name on the dotted line. Yes, signing on the dotted line is all it takes to join a world that comes complete with sporty new outfits, high- tech stereos, and super cool gadgets. From the day you were bom you longed for one thing, a credit card. This tiny col- ored piece of plastic has always symbolized freedom from parents, the good life, and anything you want when you want it; but it is not always that simple. Along with a credit card comes indepen- dence and responsibility. According to Wilson, this responsibility is asked for every day by " ...about seventy- five UNA students who come by and fill out applications. " Of course, the companies do use gimmicks such as free t-shirts, and " Koosh " ball key chains to entice passers-by in the University Center to fill out an application. .Some stu- dents found that applying on campus was very convenient. Junior Mason Matthews said, " It was just easy to stop by and fill one out. 1 had been meaning to get a credit card for about two years, and I saw that this was the most conve- nient way to do it. " Wilson confidently believes " ...that most students arc accepted when thoy apply because if they weren ' t we couldn ' t keep coming back to this campus. In fact, we have canceled two colleges because the return [from the credit cards] was so low. " One reason that students are readily accepted when they apply for credit cards is that they are earning an edu- cation so their buying power increases with each year they are in school. Creditors realize that college students are important because they will have jobs in the near future. Believe it or not, college students surprisingly have lit- tle bad debt to the companies because many students fear having their credit history ruined. If a person goes three months without paying his her credit card bill, then creditors can give the bad debt to a col- lection agency and demand payment. A person who does not pay the agency could be risking earning a bad line of credit for up to seven years. Many students apply for credit cards so they can feel less financially dependent on parents or grandparents. Others even use their credit cards to pay for their tuition so they won ' t have to apply for student loans. Sometimes students just get a card for emergencies like books that must be bought immediately or even a new outfit for the last-minute- gotta-look-great-date. A new option for those looking into possessing a credit card is the " UNA Lion Pride Visa " which is available from Colonial Bank. This card shows school spirit and Leo ' s face proudly graces this piece of plastic. One of the benefits of the card is that a percent- age of every purchase goes back to the university. Credit cards be very benefi- cial for college students who are trying to establish inde- pendence, and acquire an excellent history of credit. Of course, there will be some stu- dents who may abuse the priv- ileges of instant money, but if you shop wisely and pay your bills on time then you will reap the benefits for a life- time.

This was the first time a sym- bol like this had been on campus since 1986. Originally created as a part of the new student union build- ing in 19(52, the victory flame shone at the heart of the campus for 25 years. However, with the construction of the new Tniversity Center in 1986, the original Hame was extinguished and dismantled. Organized by the National Alumni Association, the campaign for the victory Hame to be reinstat- ed at UNA raised $60,000 toward rebuilding. For donors who chose to give $50 or more, bricks were offered which paved the victory flames plaza. These bricks could be given " In honor or or " In memory or a loved one, a relative, a class- mate, an organization, or the donor ' s name. Each brick was engraved and plac(»d in the victory plaza. FViday, October 27, before the pep rally, the victory flanie was lit in recognition of Home -oming 1995. This was done as a candlelight service, with each altendjuit holtling a cjuidle. " Kach i)erson holding a candle signifies individuiii success- es, " said Dr. B. Kembrel Jones, director of alumni relations and annual giving. When each person extinguished his or her candle, with the shot of an archer ' s bow across the top of the tall monument, a blaze of light flashed into the night air. The entire Pride of Dixie Band was present at the ceremony, as well as the Nationjil Alumni Association. Collegiate Singers, and 15 other student organizations. Afler the victory flame began to bum, the pep rally began. It was held by the light of the victory fiame. Tliis became a new tradition at the university. The vic- tory ' garden, and the entire vittorv |)laza, was fully completed at the first of the year. By Bronson Glover mil ' MORIES fonstnirtion of the nrw victory FUnr bripiii at Ihr ■ ter.

There are those, however, who choose to make he college experience a permanent part of their lives. They are the ones who come back year after year and try to mold a fresh batch of young minds into scholars. As students, sometimes we tend to not 3ven think of them as human. We place them on a pedestal and expect [hem to be perfect. That ' s quite a burden. The quality of a university is judged by the quality of its faculty, and our school is respected. Sometimes we take that for grant- ed. It is not easy to earn a legendary reputation; but our faculty, through hours of dedication and hard work, has earned one for themselves and for us in the process. DL Ti ia isiiti) i,[ Tmii .

Yiee president d]l be missed Leasure leaves huge impact on campus Easing across the lawn with the skill of a trained hunter and the subtlety of a deadly viper, he ducks behind small trees and shrubs to keep from being spotted by the ferocious lion. With an abrupt yell he awakens the huge beast who in turn jumps to his feet and begins to stalk his oppo- nent from his ghastly lair. Just as he reaches the edge of the den, the lion leaps out to sur- prise the man. Then they greet, as old friends do, and have their afternoon chat as commonly and haphaz- ardly as anyone would who has a best friend that is a lion. " We play this little game, no matter when it is, even if he is sound asleep, and I ' ll walk up there and his head will turn, " said Dr. Daniel Leasure, vice president for university advance- ment. " There is this tiny Ut- ile tree he thinks he ' s hiding behind, and you can see his head looking around either side. I pretend I ' m sneaking up on him and he will jump out. " He who jumps out, of course, is Leo the university mascot, who has been friends with Leasure since the lion was a cub. " Sometimes when I ' m in a hurry I ' ll look over and see him looking at me like he ' s saying, ' Come on over and play with me. ' He ' ll jump up and rub him- self against the side of the fence, " Leasure said. But sadly, this daily fellow- ship between man and beast was interrupted when Dr. Leasure began his retirement on September 30. Leo will not be the only one to miss this outstanding educa- tor and administrator, but lucki- ly Dr. Leasure has promised to hang around and continue to work for the university, only this time it will be " on my time clock, " he said. " Vice president for universi- ty advancement, it ' s just one of those big titles, and for me it ' s " When you talk about the $5.5 million that is there, it will be there forever. But the biggest thing is what is not here, yet. We have 10 or 20 million in will commitments coming in simply because we are making an effort to let people know that A THOUGHTFUL MOMENT. Dr. Dan Leasure enjoys Honors Night while waiting to accept the Outstanding Service Award. Photo by Shannon Wells. only good for a few more days, " Leasure said in an interview prior to his retirement. Since becoming the vice president for advancement in 1990, Leasure has added to his already illustrious resume by helping the campus capitalize on its gifts and improve in every way, all the while he spearhead- ed a move which generated more than $5.5 million for the university foundation. " When I took this job, there was no development effort here at all, not even in the alumni association. There had been a foundation established but there had been no activity in it for so long that it was not even recognized by the IRS, so we had to reactivate the foundation as a vehicle for funds, " Leasure said. we have needs and we want the university to prosper and advance. " Not only has Leasure worked hard to build a strong founda- tion for scholarships but he has also worked to improve the infrastructure of the university. He has helped build a strong fraternity system, establish a stronger student government and revitalized the residence halls. He is also the man responsi- ble for the creation of Fall Convocation and YuleFost and he led the building of the uni- versity center. " What makes a good univer- sity is good students and good teachers, and if you do the things to bring those ingredi- ents together, that ' s what makes the difference, " Leasure said. Leasure ' s retirement plans began about one year ago, because, he said, " it just seemed like the right time. " He plans to travel more freely now and continue his work in vari- ous community efforts, hke the Shoals Area Chamber of Commerce. He also intends on staying actively involved with the university. " The president will not let me get away that easily, " he said. Some of his future plans will definitely include his two daugh- ters, who are both gradu- ates of the university and now pursuing their own careers. Leasure has no intention of staying still for anyone during his retirement, and he insists that the traveling he wants to do is more peo- ple-oriented than place- oriented. " To me it is mostly who I want to visit instead of where; I guess I ' ve always been more geared toward work- related things than pleasure. " he said. Now he will have plenty of time for family and doing the things he enjoys. He will also have the opportunity to fine tune his skills restoring antique furniture in his newly remod- eled wood shop. His interest for antiquities began in the early 1960s and he mainly collects luuid-crafted furniture from the early 1800s. Leasure ' s humor and humili- ty in his constant and dedicated service to the University of North Alabama will be sorely missed by its people. The friends he has made and the people he has helped here will continue to call him their friend forever . By Baron Berrj 138 Fmcnity Faculty Ab-Dr UR. KAY ABBOrr BnvifofMMnlw 1 DR.

" 1 think tandem riding is nice l ecause you ' re outside in nature with someone you w;irit to be with, " Carolyn said Two fit riders can hold a two- seater, or tandem, at 20-25 miles per hour on level ground for considerable distances of around 50 miles, according to Thomas Lovett. That ' s because the power of two riders is com- bined with the wind resistance of one. Weighing in at just under 41 pounds, the Lovetts ' two-seater was made by Burley, one of the largest U.S. tandem production companies. The couple owns at least a dozen " rideable bikes, " but they bought their tandem six years ago so they could ride together. At the time, they were both working for Southeast Missouri State University and living in Cape Girardeau. " Bicycling is my hobby and some say that ' s putting it a bit mildly, " said Tom, whose home- town is Little Rock, Ark. " Carolyn and I bike at different f ' vels and it ' s not always fun for r one of us to try to ride Lher on singles. " The Lovetts have been vn to ride their tandem in a ty of locations, and often it along on a trailer when ...t ling. Tom warns, however, liat tandems can be clumsy on city streets. Because of a tandem ' s length, he compares turning one to turning an 18- wheeler. The cou- ple prefers to use their bike for recreational touring, and are most likely to be found along Natchez Trace Parkway or at Shiloh Battleground National Cemetery. " Shiloh is an excellent place simply to go if you need a break, " Tom said. " In the Shoals area, we ' ve got so many hun- dreds of miles of very good county roads, the opportunities are really limitless. " The Lovetts attract their share of curious looks while out riding in this area. They ' ve also met some interesting people due to their hobby. While unloading their Burley on Natchez Trace near the Tennessee Alabama state line a few years ago, a retired couple from Tuscon, Ariz., asked the Lovetts to ride with them. The retirees owned two tandents — one for off-road purposes and one for the road. " We went south to the Colbert Ferry ranger ' s station, which is basically a downhill ride and back, " Tom remembers. " They were good! " There is a growing interest in tandem bicy- cling. The Lovetts discovered there was a tandem rally earlier this year in Auburn and hope to attend such an event next year. By Laura Jane Jenkins Faculty 141 Faculty Ke-Se MRS.

THE DECISION MAKERS. Administrative board members make no decision without great thought. Photo by Shannon Well . 144 Faculty Meeting the challenge University administrators face obstacles head-on rhe 1990s were supposed to be a rough time for uni- versities. National and nal trends in the late ' SOs indi- ated that there would be a ump in enrollment in the early ui mid " QOs. Of course, with a rop in enrollment romes a pop in fundiiig. President Potts " administra- bn met this predicted problem ead on by coming up with a an to make UNA an even more tractive place for prospective id current students. In 1993, otts ' administration put an woUment management system 1 place which included more )phisticated marketing than e university had ever previ- jsly employed. The changes did not stop there. Certain academic stan- dards were established includ- ing an academic admissions standard. In addition, the UNA 101 University Experience Course and the Academic Resource Center were estab- lished to better serve students. All the preparations paid off. The school is growing. " Our freshman class is up 9.6% and is the largest freshman class since 1990, " said President Potts. The total student head count for 1995 was 5,427 students, up more than 200 over last fall. Potts says there is enough credit to go around. " The facul- ty, students, staff, alumni, and especially the Board of Trustees are to be congratulated for the hard work which has achieved this result. This result demon- strates we have a great product to sell, and we are doing so effectively. " An individual who played and integral role in this success decided to move on this year. Vice President for University Advancement Dan Leasure retired after 12 years at this uni- versity. Leasure leaves behind a legacy of projects on this cam- pus. Here are a few of them. Dr. Leasure helped to reactivate the University Foundation, and he served on the Foundation ' s board. He prepared the ground- work for establishment of a Development Office on campus. Also, Leasure ' s concerted efforts were instrumental in the university being given a grant which offset the cost of the pur- chase of the historical house on Court Street which became CobyHaU. Even with the growth in enrollment, cutbacks had to be made this year. The future is looking brighter, though. If the state legislative season goes as the administration expects, higher education should be receiving more money next year. At any rate, the school is in good shape. Both President Potts and Vice President for Business Affairs Wilbur Shuler stated: " The University is in sound financial condition. " By Matt Pettus THE GREAT COMMITNICATORS.

Potts has served as the university president for the past six years. To the unsuspecting that may seem a short time, but President Potts ' connection vv ith the university began even before he was born. His parents were students on campus, then known as Florence State Teachers College, and were married just before World War 11. Soon after, they made their home on North Wood Avenue. The president ' s earliest memories of campus were students walking to class. The university also served as a playground for him as a child. President Potts gradu- ated from the local Coffee High School in 1962. He went on to attend Southern College in Tennessee. While there he became interested in travel and arranged to spend a year in England studying at Newbold College. It was here that he met " the most beautiful Swedish woman, " Irene Johansson. Soon after they became engaged and were married in Jarnboas, Sweden. The pair returned to the United States while Potts fin- ished his senior year of col- lege. He continued his formal education at the University of Alabama and Harvard University earning his Juris Doctorate and Master of Law, respectively. Potts, his wife, and young daughter Julie Anna returned home to Florence in 1971. From here he embarked on an exciting career in law as a partner with the local Potts and Young Attorneys. Potts began to do legal work for the University of North Alabama. His family also continued to expand with the birth of the Potts ' second child, Robert, Jr. In 1984 he became General Counsel for the University of Alabama sys- tem. It was during this time that Potts became active in the American Bar Association and the National Conference of Bar Examiners, which he remains active in today. In 1990 Potts was contact- ed by the university to serve as interim president upon the retirement of Dr. Robert Guillot. While serving in this capacity, Potts competed vdth over 100 applicants in a national search for the presi- dency. He was selected Chief Executive Officer and has gone on to make significant advances for the university. While president. Potts ha; incorporated a comprehen sive fund-raising progran and increased endowment b] 125% to help make the uni versity more self-sufficien and financially stable. He wa; also instrumental in estab lishing the Supercomputei Node on campus and bring ing computer automation anc the Internet to faculty anc students. President Potts continue; to emphasize a quality edu cation and adaptation tc technology in his vision foi the university ' s growth While he may be seen hurry ing from meeting to meeting across caimpus or hosting ar official reception with Mrs Potts at his side, one can b( sure that President Potts ii working hard for our future.

They simply come to class and leave without experiencing the social interaction piat organizations provide. If this is what you are doing, you are missing out on invaluable experience and memories. No matter what some may think, college has more to offer than lectures in the classroom. This is the place where you can meet friends that you will keep for the rest of your life. You can ' t meet these people in your car. You ' ve got to get involved. The best way to do this is to join a campus organization. Besides meeting people, being part of an organization helps you to have a say in how things are done on campus. This is one way you can leave a piece of yourself here. The things that you have taken part in, the changes that you helped make — these things will be here long after you [llinil rMII(ILS.Thereisno better analogy to group involvement than chemistry.

" ill of Ontuiizatlona 151 When students make the decision to live on campus, they should realize that dorm life may possibly be the best expe- rience of their young lives. Of course, at times there will be problems like noisy neighbors down the hall, two beds shar- ing a small space, and baskets full of clothes to wash; but, the advantages will far outweigh the disadvantages. One might ask " What advantages? " They are several. They include not hav- ing to search for a parking space when there isn ' t one, being able to study at late night cram sessions, and always being able to relive the last episode of " Friends " with a friend. Resident Allison Napps said that " ...never having to find a parking space is a big plus to living on campus. " Although most people think of UNA as a commuter college, many students do in fact choose to live on campus. There are several choices for their homes- away-f rom-home .

These study areas serve as all-purpose areas where students can have pizza parties, socialize, or actually study on rare occasions. LaGrange ' s convenient location makes it another popular residence hall. It provides its residents with easy access to all parts of the campus. Lafayette Hall is somewhat unique because it became an Honor Hall this year. Potential residents must submit an application, resume, and references. The dorm is completely self-governed. Dorm regulations are made by an exec- utive committee of students. Powers Hall is a Panhellenic resi- dence hall. A total of 48 women from the four NPC campus chapters reside there. Each sorority has a chapter suite where members can study, watch televi- sion or visit with friends. Each of the residence halls is equipped with kitchens for those stu dents who prefer to cook for them selves. Washing machines and dryer are also available to make life away fron home as convenient and clean as possi ble. The dorms are governed by th( Residence Halls Association. The Hal Councils (from Rice, Rivers, anc LaGrange) work together to offer mam activities and programs for the resi dents. Residence Life sponsors movi( nights, dances, a banquet for resident; with a GPA over 3.0, and a carnival They also have a picnic during Residents Appreciation Week. The residence halls give their resi dents many opportunities to be active on campus. Each of the halls organize. ' teams which participate in intranmrals homecoming activities and Spring Fling.

Photo by Shannon Wells. Mthout a doubt, the University Program Council provides an invaluable service to students by organizing and sponsoring many entertaining and unique events on campus. Its members (made up of repre- sentatives from other campus organiza- tions) work together to provide a better atmosphere on campus. The UPC sponsors such major events on campus as the annual " Step Sing " show, Miss UNA, and the Mr. and Miss University competition held dur- ing Homecoming week. Besides these undertakings, the UPC does its best to search out new and rising talents to bring to the campus. These talents range from solo guitarists to new fresh-faced comedians. The UPC also brings a series of speakers to the campus during both fall and spring semesters. Under the leadership of Tobi Mayes and the advisement of Jayne Jackson, the UPC soared yet again by bringing a great season of entertainment to the campus. In February, the Zydeco Band was brought to campus to help join in the celebration of Mardi Gras. During March, Bob Harris pro- vided his enthralling lecture entitled " Beyond JFK. " The campus shook with laughter when comedian Renee Hicks stormed the campus with her " Bald Ambition Tour 11 " in April. During Spring Fling, the campus was treated to such pop- ular bands as " Jim Jones, " " Mind Station, " " Fiddleworms, " and " Johnny Clueless. " The fall semester kicked off with a " Back to Class Bash " which was held in -the Amphitheatre. Schlindler ' s list survivor, Zev Kedem, spoke to the campus in late September. On October 16-20, the UPC sponsored Alcohol Awareness Week by hav- ing " The Floating Men " come to the Amphitheatre for a non-alcoholic party, and they also brought speakers to campus to encourage responsible drinking. " Johnny Clueless " came back to the campus in October to celebrate Homecoming after Mr. and Miss University. The UPC also offered students the chance to go to the movies without spend- ing money. Each Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, movies were shown at 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. in the University Center. (Continued on next page) IM OrganUatloiM A GUITAB VIBTUOSO.

Membership in the soci- ety provides many opportunities for person- al growth while giving invaluable services to the university. The organization began in 1973 with women serving as Golden Girls. In the early 1980s men were added to the group and the named was changed to Golden Girls and Ambassadors. The society continued under this title until 1993. In an effort to bring uni- formity to the name and bring in the history of the university ' s first site of 1830 .(LaGrange College), the name was changed to the LaGrange Society. Full-time sophomores, juniors, and seniors are selected each spring by a process which includes a minimum grade point requirement of 2.25 on a 4.00 scale, role play scenarios, and a personal interview with a panel of university representatives. The LaGrange Society has a three-fold mission: to serve as official hosts and host- esses for the university president ' s recep- tions and events, to serve with the Office of Admissions for recruitment purposes, and to serve as Leo II ' s official sponsor by raising money for his care. Members may be seen collecting money at football games, giving tours to prospec- tive students and their families, or working the information desk in Bibb Graves Hall. Whatever their duty, they may be recog- nized wearing the official uniforms. Thi: may be a purple golf shirt which carries th( LaGrange Society logo when they are seiT ing daily on campus, or the more forma purple suit for women and navy jacket anc tie for men when hosting receptions.

Oitaai atioiM 197 Pushin ' to Pprfprtion The Pride of Dixie marches into succes Before the fall semester even begins, the band starts getting ready for their upcoming year of performances. In the mid-August sun, the band practices for close to twelve hours a day during their first week of rehearsals. Once the fall semester begins, the band members put in an hour of practice Monday through Friday and an additional rehearsal on Saturday mornings. Besides an intense dedication to prac- ticing, another key factor in putting together a terrific half-time show is the positive attitudes of the band members. " 1 had much enthusiasm when I got here, and that enthusiasm has stayed with me throughout the year, " said percussionist David Draper. The Pride of Dixie, as always, had a full schedule. They performed at every home football game, but their responsibilities did not end there. Whenever the football team was away, the band loaded their instruments onto buses and went to play at exhibitions for high school band com- petitions. Whether it was an exhibition or a game, they always received the standing ovation that they deserved. " When we ' re out on the field performing, the long hard practices pay off, " said freshman Betsy Jurchenko. The legendary half-time show, under the leadership of drum major, Joseph Stallworth, opened with " Things . . . Caravan, " and quickly moved into the slower-paced " Since 1 Fell for You. " Next the majorettes entertained the audience with their feature spotlight to " Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, " which was followed by the Lionette feature dance to " Shop Around. " The percussion solo was electri fying with the song sometimes known a; " Hellfire: Damnation. " Then, the energj reached its climax with the crowd pleaser " C Jam Blues, " which made for a dynamic finale. " I feel like this can be, and quite possi bly will be, the finest band in the 18 years 1 have been here, " according to veterar band director, Dr. Edd Jones. " We have everything in place for it to be the finest. " After all of the practices, shows, anc exhibitions the band proved that thej were the best they could be. The Pride ol Dixie Marching Band gave the footbal fans a show to remember while creating lasting memories of their own. — Keith Newberrj LAYING THE FOUNDATION.

These performers are the m orettes, the Lionettes, the flag line, and feature twirl ' Ts, each of which contribute to the siu cess of the band ' s performances by impressing the crowd with their dances, ' and brilliant display of flags. " 1 love . Lionet te. " said ( ' hristy Harvey. " IVe iiiade so many friends, and I get to do what I love to do the best . . . dancing! " The auxiliary units practice with the band on a daily basis, as well as on Saturday mornings. Sometimes these groups practice more than two hours a day to perfect their routines. Tasha Wiggins, a freshman flag corps member, commented " I like working with a group of people who are dedicated to one performance, and working at it no mat- ter how early in the morning or how late in the hot day to get it perfect. " The hard work and dedication of the members of the auxiliary units was very t WU WW. t noticeable at every home football game and at exhibitions at local high schools. The auxiliary units worked very hard this year to provide the crowd with a great show. The Lionettes contributed to this year ' s review by dancing their way through the upbeat song, " Shop Around, " while the majorettes displayed their talented twirling during " Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. " The auxiliary units combined their efforts at the end of the show to produce an explosion of color using red, orange, yellow, green, and blue flags. There was something different this year, as the auxiliary units got new costumes. These added to the appeal of their perfor- mances. " The glamour is the best part, " said nuyorette Erin Blackwell. " The great thing about the UNA band is that there are one hundred and fifty people out there trying to accomplish one goal, and that is to perform their best show to the best of their ability every single time, " said Feature Twirler Jennifer Neskaug. — Keith Newbeny LIONETTES-Front Rom: Amanda Gentle, Christy Harvey, Amarls Hanbark, Stephanie Frons, Monica Parrish (head), Amy Evans, Atlsha Bymrr, Jessica Campbell, Jennifer Moran, and Heather Hager.

Their commitment to the team lasts for two years and they serve the campus by developing, facilitating, and promoting leadership programs. The mem- bers of the L.E.A.D. Team act as a resource for leadership education to all students and other organizations. The L.E.A.D. Team par- ticipates in the well-received Emergiii Leaders Program (a training prograi designed for freshmen and sophomores wh have an interest in growing in their leade ship abilities) by giving advice to membei and by organizing programs for the men bers. They also have bi-weekly meeting and hosted a leadership workshop o November 9 which brought Dr. Susa Parker of Athens State College to the can pus for a lecture on leadership.

GERMAN CLUB The German (Mill) formerly known as " Die Deutschen Loewen, " has enjoyed much success this year with a membership of thirty members. This club allows its members opportunity to make contacts outside the classroom with each other and their professors. Members are able to strengthen their knowledge of German cul- ture and the language by participaling in the activities that the club provides. Some of the activities this year included (Jemmn- American Day, meetings with guest speak- ers, and a picnic. At the picnic, they enjoyed traditional (Jerman recijies, music, and experienced some of the customs of ( onnany. RESA The Re-Entering Students Association serves the campus as one of the most rec- ognized and largest organizations. RESA has its own lounge in the Guillot University Center to provide a place for the " non-tra- ditional " srudenl to relax, talk to fellow stu- dents, or just study. The organization ' s members provide support for each other and they participate in activities with each other outside of the organization. RESA offers an opporturuty for all re-entering stu- ients to find a way to get involved on cam- pus. This organization welcomes new mem- bers and will continue to be active on cam- pus.

The University of North Alabama Army ROTC Detach ment w as established in 1948. ROTC ' s future on this campus seemed uncertain last year. In fact, there was some talk about clos- ing the department; but, due to the efforts of the university, it will be stay- ing open. The ROTC Program, headed by Lt. Col. Kirkland, has a lot to offer to any- one motivated enough to enter the pro- gram. ROTC offers two programs: the Basic Course and the Advanced Course. The Basic Course is usually taken during the freshman and sophomore years. The student can enter the Basic Course without making any further obligation. In this course, the student attends a one hour instruction class and one lab per week. The lab teaches the student skills in rappelling, water survival, basic rifle marksmanship, small infantry tactics, and land navigation. The Basic Course also gives the student the opportunity to attend Basic Camp, a paid six-week summer leadership camp that is offered at Fort Knox, Kentucky. The student usually goes Basic Camp between his or her freshman and sophomore years. Students who are eligible may elect to enter the Advanced Course, normally taken during their junior and senior years. In this course, cadet students receive three hours of classroom instruction per week in conjunction with a leadership lab. Between their junior and senior years, the cadets attend a paid six-week Advance Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky. In order for a student to become a cadet, the student needs a minimum GPA of 2.0 on a four- point scale. ROTC also offers two-, three-, and four-year scholarships. These scholar- ships are given on the basis of demon- strated academic ability and leadership potential. The scholarships pay full tuition, books, room and board, and lab fees. They also pay the cadet $150 per month for a total of nine months. The minimum GPA for a scholarship is 2.5 on a four-point scale. The department ' s Ranger Challenge Team provides students with the chance for athletic competition against other schools. The team competes in events like the 10-K Run. From Octob( 21-22, the team competed against 2 universities at Camp Shelby, Mississipp The Ranger Challenge Program is nc for the regular student, but for the higl ly-motivated individual. Once a cadet has graduated, he ( she is commissioned a Secon Lieutenant in the Regular Army or i the Reserves. However, all cadets ai required to go to OBC (Officers Bas Course) in whatever branch the choose. The branches range froi Intelligence to Infantry, and they are j competitive. The ROTC cadets are highly active c campus. At every home football gam the ROTC Color Guard proudly carrit the U.S. flag. The department is also i charge of the annual Homecomiii Parade. On Veterans ' Day, the depar ment held a ceremony at the amphith( atre in honor of our nation ' s veterans. The ROTC program lives up to th Army ' s motto. " It ' s not just a job; it ' s a adventure. " The department is aboi the only one that can guarantee a sti dent a job right out of college. — Jay Giannatc PURE DETERMINATION.

Winston. The group states that its purpose is three- fold: to uplift the name of Jesus Christ through song; to offer a positive social experience to all those associated with the choir; and to help its members become bet- ter vocalists. This year, the group had about 40 members. Officers were Eric Kirkman, (president and director), Dionne Cochran (secretary), and Andrea Whitson (treasur- er). The group ' s sponsors were Casey Eggleston and Dwight Winston. The only requirements for membership are dedica- tion, cooperation, and a love for God. BAPTIST CAMPUS MINISTRIES Students who are involved in the Baptist Campus Ministries meet together regularly at the Baptist Student Center. Every Wednesday morning between 1 1 a.m. and noon, the students gather for " Noonday. " At this weekly event, lunch is served and guest speakers come to join in fellowship with the college students. Every Wednesday night at 9 p.m., the BCM partic- ipates in " Campus After Dark. " Members are also involved in socials, parties, trips, missions, and Habitat for Humanity. Anyone is welcome to come to the BCM to join in Bible study and to grow spiritually with fellow Christians. THE CANTERBUBY CLUB The Canterbury Club meets at the Trinity Episcopal Church each Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. They have " Lunch Bunch " on Wednesdays.

Photo by Christopher Rohling. 194 Organizations Building a house is not the most conunon extra-curricular activity among colle students, but that ' s exactly how several students decided to spend a large amoui of their free time in the fall. They were working with Habitat for Humanity, a Christian housing ministi founded in Americus, Georgia, in 1976. Its purpose is " to eliminate poverty housir from the world. " Habitat attempts to do this by building houses for needy familie all over the world. Habitat for Humanity is not a giveaway program. If a family is found to qualij for a Habitat house (meaning they currently live in substandard housing and ha an income of between 10 and 20 thousand dollars), they still have to pay for i However, they are given a twenty-year mortgage at no interest so the monthly pa; ments are pretty low, generally $150 to $200 a month. They also have to put in 5C hours of " sweat equity " on other Habitat houses. Our Habitat chapter is the direct result of a challenge issued by Millard Fulle co-founder of Habitat for Humanity, who spoke at graduation in December of ' 9- " He challenged us to do something, " said Janice Glor, who would later become fa( ulty adviser for a campus chapter of Habitat. The challenge was accepted. A UNA chapter of Habitat for Humanity wa formed in March; and, by September 24, a needy family in Florence had a ne ' house. " This was kind of rushed since we were already into it by the time students gc back on campus. We were kind of anxious to get a house started, so we met ov6 the summer with our committee s. We started clearing the lot in mid- August an had our wall-raising on Labor Day, " said Glor. The actual building of the hous (located behind the Coliseum on Park St.) took just three weeks. Glor gave some of the credit for their rapid progress to several Habitat peopl who assisted with the house. " There is a core group of Habitat people that com out and work on every single house and are there every day. These generally ar retired men who enjoy this kind of work and know what they ' re doing. With thei help, it just goes along real fast. " She also gave credit to the First National Bank of Florence for helping to gi things off to such a fast start. " We were very fortunate to be working in partnershi wdth the bank. They put up the front money so we didn ' t have to get into a lot c fundraising this time. " She also said that employees from the bank were ther helping every single day. Once the actual work on the house began, it continued almost non-slop fo three weeks until the house was completed. The workday began at 7 a.m. and wen until 8 or 9 o ' clock at night. Glor said that having a late shift (from 5 to 9 o ' clock i unusual, but was necessary because students are usually busy during the day. i diverse group of people participated in the project including people from studen organizations, students from Coffee High School, and employees from the Firs National Bank. It was worth it, according to Robbie Hillis, our chapter ' s president, who ha worked on eight or nine Habitat houses. " It gives you a sense of pride and enjoy ment, " he said. " It ' s great seeing the impact [the house] has on their lives, watchin] them start to decorate it before it ' s even finished. " It looks like Habitat for Humanity will become a permanent fixture on this cam pus. According to Glor, they hope to build a house every year. — Matt Pettui HORKINd ilAKD.

I Ontanlxations 195 Maldiig Joiuili Qemns The Student Government Association is always working to improve conditions and help the student body. The 1995 and 1996 SGA members were very active with a large number of projects throughout the year. The SGA announced that a joint com- mittee made up of students and faculty voted in February to make UNA a smoke- free campus except for married student housing. While there had originally been plans to designate parts of the Guillot University Center as smoking areas, the whole GUC was declared smoke-free. Senator Jason Evans said about the con- troversial smoking ban: " I like the change in the smoking policy on campus. 1 think that people should have the right to eat without smoke around them. " In a joint effort with the Sportsman ' s Club and the National Alumni Association, the SGA allocated funds to purchase a new Leo mascot costume to replace the old costume. To improve its visibility on campus, the SGA approved a bill requiring all officers and senators to donate one hour of their time per week serving at the GUC infor- mation desk. This time was to be spent answering questions, providing directions, and being of help to anyone who asked for assistance. Said Senator Jamie McBrayer, " I feel that working at the information desk is a valuable way for students to know who the SGA senators are. This way, students will know who to go to when they have a complaint or concern. " In addition, the SGA Gripe Line was installed so students could telephone to voice their opinions and concerns about campus life. The SGA also worked toward the cre- ation of a " Free Speech Area " on campus where anyone could voice their opinion however they saw fit. Legally, the univer- sity can restrict where some things can be said on campus; the Free Speech Area would be free of such restrictions. As a part of the campus wide automa- tion program, the SGA worked to com- plete a program to provide a fax machin solely for student use in the Academi Resource Center. Also, as a part of th automation program, a new computer we added in the SGA office. The SGA wa now on-line and could access Ih InterNet. The SGA also voted to exchange it supplies and line-item budget for ten pe: cent of the funds collected by the unive: sity from traffic fines and vendin machines on campus. The reason for th change was the hope that although th percentage would vary from year to yea the funding would still be more than th set amount received under the previou plan. The executive officers of the SGA fc 1995-96 were Michelle Rupe, presiden Jeremy Baham, vice president; Kelle Reed, secretary; and Jeff Eubanks, trej surer. — Matthew Spaldin STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION-Front Sow: Carrie Ann Sims, Beth Hellumii, Jamie McBrayer, Beth Glaas, Cheron Pitu, Jamie SUk, Caria Daniel, Karia Felker, Bethany Blanton, 196 Organization Kellee Reed.

FlorUll Aceed ritUiVlecRlillil itUc MkM Wliilo loivuovity is sonH thiiyl to l)e adnured, some thii)j{s tend to gel stale with age. This year, Executive Editor Baron Beny feit it was tinje for The Flor-Ala to undergo a dramatic cl ange. Beny said, " Basically, we clianged the I ' ntire organization of the pap er. Our story sflection has been totnllv different than in previous years. " The staff had .unauy put in hours of woric dt eloping their piiui of attack before the first etlition went to press. " We met last semester and several times during the summer to dis- cuss what our goals were, and we ' ve accom- plished 90 percent of what we set out to do, " sakl Berry. ' Accortling to Berry, there were two main goals for " Pw Flor-Ala. " We wanted to have a more balanced and objective paper. For exam- pie, we wanted to rework our e litorial page so it wasn ' t as one-sided as it had lH?en in the past. The main thing we wanted was to increase our readership. I dont have any sci- entiric- lata on this, but last year we had at least half of our newspapers led over. This year, out of the 5,000 papers we publish a week, we usually have 50 to 100 papers left over. We increased our readership probably JOO percent. " Though Berry equates this rise in reader- ship to story selection, he admits it was aided by controversy. " Of course, there have been stories with subjects of a controversial nature, but we didnt create it. We revealed what was happening, and there is going to be more of that. If we can find it, we ' re going to report it. " This eye for the controversy resulted in some big stories from the school paper this year. " We ' ve scooped the TimesDaily a couple of times, " said Berry. " Probably our biggest scoop was when we reported Potts ' statement about shutting down the athletic program. Tliat was our kicker. " BerryTs changes did not stop with the paper itself. He decided to bring a more democratic attitude to the editor ' s position. " 1 personally decided to give the staff more input. FYom the start, I gave everybody an open forum to sub- mit their ideas. " That decision paid off. According to Berry, the relationship among staff members this year was totally unique. " We ' ve made a con- nection with each other that I think no other Flor-Ala staff has ever accomplished. 1 really believe that. " Berry gives his staff much credit for the paper ' s success this year. " Our staff is great. They ' re the best. Jason Wommack is hands down the best sports editor this newspaper has ever had. Julie Payne, one of our associate editors, is excellent. I dont think there is any- one on this campus who knows the in ' s and out ' s of the entertainment in this area like she does. The other associate editor, Wmdy Hood, is the same way. She ' s new to this, but she has jumped in with both feet. Robert ' s my right- hand man. He ' s taken on a lot more responsi- bility than h e was thinking he would have to, which is good for me. " Robert Crisp, a senior, served as copy edi- tor this year and enjoyed his position. " I ' ve really developed strong relationships with my fellow editors and staff members, and it has provided me with a good portfolio should I choose to pursue this as a career. There are times when I ' ve thought that if I had known what all this would require, I might not have taken the job, but looking back now I ' m glad 1 did. It ' s been a struggle to keep everything together, but it ' s paid off in the end. " Though Berry agrees there is a lot of pres- sure and hassle that goes with the job (work- ing till 3:30 in the morning, for example), he says it was all worth it. " The friendships I ' ve made up here have been immeasurable to me. That ' s worth all the hassle. I don ' t want to make it sound like it ' s a doom and gloom thing to be up here. It ' s very exciting work and well- worth the effort. " —Matt Pettus P.MING CLOSE ATTKNTI ■ paprr dorUig • wwkl) Hntn- in HtMlt mrmbm liatrn rarrfoll) to thr aKprnla for next weekVl •-moon mrrting.

OrMAiaAtioM IM AN UPCLOSE LOOK. Executive Editor Allisoi Stack and Associate Editor Holli Hargrove stud; negatives on a light table. Photo by Shannoi Wells. The campus at 2 a.m. — this is a sight most students are fortunate enough never to have to see. The editors of the Diorama, however, got the chance to take in this view several times this year. " We pulled quite a few late-nighters this year in order to make our deadlines, " said first-time Executive Editor Allison Stack. " But when you make a commitment to pro- duce a yearbook, you sometimes have to make sacrifices. Some of those sacrifices may be missing a few hours of sleep or not studying as much as you should. " Beii g the executive editor of a yearbook is a demanding job. According to Stack, it was made even more so this year because the book was expanded. " During the sum- mer, we decided to increase the size of the yearbook to 256 pages. At the time I did not realize how small our staff would be, but we overcame this obstacle through team work and patience. " " I must give credit to my associate edi- tors, Holli and Matt. They worked hard and were always there when things got tough. Even when our deadlines were the most trying, we always managed to laugh togeth- er. " Stack also gives credit to Brenda J. Hill, the yearbook ' s faculty adviser. " B.J. is a great adviser. She is very dedicated to her work, and she has so much yearbook knowl- edge. We could not have done it without her advice and help. " An associate editor for the yearbook is paid for a 12-hour work week. Twelve hours, of course, does not sound like much time. " Yeah, I thought I could just work two or three hours a day, " said Associate Editor Matt Pettus. " I realized I was wrong when I was up here during Game 3 of the World Series finishing stories for our first dead- line. " Despite all the overtime, Pettus says it was definitely worth it in the end. " This job cost me some points on my GPA, but the experience I ' ve gained and the friends 1 have made are more important anyway. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn ' t change a thing. " Hargrove, also an associate editor, agrees. " It was difficult to balance a full load of classes, my responsibilities with my sorority, and all the time I had to spend up here, but I managed. In retrospect, I ' m glad I took the job because it has been such a positive experience. " Stack agrees with her editors that the positives definitely outweighed the nega- tives She said, " Becoming the executive edi- tor of the Diorama was one of the greatest opportunities that I have ever gotten in my life. I have learned so much from being the editor, and I have also realized how much that I didn ' t know about yearbooks that I thought I did. " This year the editors made a conscious effort to do things with a fresh new approach, and they always tried to keep a positive attitude. Stack said, " We wanted to take the Diorama in a new direction. For example, we added some pages, and we took a totally different approach with the Greek section. We also experimented with the overall design of the yearbook. " The Diorama editors and their staff rec- ognize the value of their positions on the university ' s yearbook. Stack said, " We are responsible for what people will remember about being students on this campus. It is our job to make sure that the yearbook cov- ers every unique and memorable aspect of life at this university, and I hope that we have. " -Lee Fisher A MOMENT OUT OF THE OFFICE.

OfimttattoM 201 The photography staff of this university can be seen everywhere across campus — covering games, and participating in every major event. They work hard and long to process and develop pictures that spark memories and capture moments in time. Shannon Wells, the university photogra- pher, leads the staff of four dedicated pho- tographers. Wells has been a photographer for 20 years; she has been the university photographer for five. Wells says her job gets better as the years go on. " Each year becomes more streamlined and we encounter less surprises. This has been an exceptional year for us in rewards, in new equipment, a computer, and finally heat and air in the darkroom. " Wells says this year ' s staff has been a good one. " The photographers this go around are not only talented, but have a sin- cere desire to do good work and an eager- ness to learn. " Chris Rohling, president of the Art Student Association, has been a student photographer since last spring. He has worked with the Diorama and The Flor- Ala, always giving his best for both publica- tions. Aside from his assigned work, Rohling has a love for art and for photography. He views his job wdth the school as more than just a resume-builder — he sees it as a chance to improve his craft and a chance to meet people. Rohling puts it this way: " 1 get hands-on experience. I learned how to use the equipment very quickly. 1 wanted the experience, but 1 also set out to meet a lot of people and make new friends. Luckily, 1 have gotten to meet people almost every day since I ' ve been a photographer. " Clancy Ratl iff has joined the photography staff recently, but has managed to develop a strong relationship with Wells and her fel- low workers. Like Rohling, she brings a fresh approach to the art of photography, as well as a fun-loving personality. Ratliff ' s love for the unknown takes her from football games to any other assignment Wells gives her. She says that she has received many challenges as a photographer. " Honestly, photography is a real challenge. It has its pains in the neck, but it also has its rewards. I ' ve only been shooting for about ten months, and it ' s been interesting to discover at age twenty that I ' m pretty good at some- thing I never thought about before. " Amy Bridenbaugh is a second-year veter- an of photography. Her experience and he love of photography adds an edge to th staff. Bridenbaugh is as dedicated as th rest of the staff, always giving her most t aid the Diorama and The Flor-Ala. She like the staff, has put in late hours to hel everyone and fulfill her job as a staff phc tographer. Bridenbaugh also enjoys her jol " 1 get to meet lots of interesting people, an every assignment is a new unique exper ence.

For the past two decades, men and wonnen at this university have been experiencing these friendships through the Greek system. This system not only provides active campus involvement for its members, but it gives students a common bond of brotherhood or sisterhood that will last a lifetime. Being in a fraternity or sorority is not all about partying despite what the masses believe. It is about truly fitting in with a group of people who accept you for who you are. This is why selecting a Greek organization to join is sometimes so difficult: because it is a lifetime commitment. Once the decision is made, each person becomes a special and essential part of the group as a whole. As a whole, a fraternity or a sorority provides an unforget- table experience for its members, even a family experience of sorts. In fact, this family experience is why Greeks have enjoyed such " Legendary Togetherness " for so many years. Hl.lBIVi .M. iriillUIIII.

Enduring Legends There are many events that occur during our years in college that will remain in our minds forever. These happenings may be meaningful to you and many others, or they may be important to only you. These moments may have changed your life, brightened your day, or even caused you to scream out loud; but no matter how something effects you, there is always a story to tell about it. At the University of North Alabama, you find that there are many stories to be remembered and told. There will be stories told about locking your keys in your car, failing your Calculus class, watching your football team win another champi- onship, meeting the guy or girl of your dreams, or even getting a great parking space. For years to come, these stories will be interjected into conversations that you have with your friends, your associates, your family, and even your grandchildren. As years go by an anecdote from your college days may flash through your thoughts and cause you to think about it again. When you reminisce about the event, the details will become even more vivid in your mind. Why will this happen? It happens because your memories are an impor- tant part of you. This collection of memories will shape itself into a legend that you have made. I IIFSFItTFII li:(.f: ll.

Sure, there were pressing deadlines, in-depth stories to be written, creative layouts to be drawn, but everything was completely under control. Fortunately, I never missed an episode of " Friends, " I always had time to prepare for my psychology class, and I would not have dreamed of losing one hour of sleep over this yearbook. Okay, you have probably figured out by now that I am only kidding, but this has been quite an exciting experience for me. Before I was blessed by God to receive this job, I would never have dreamed that I would ever see this campus at 2:45 a.m. I was fortunate enoug h to see this early morning view of the campus because the other editors and I were just leaving our office.

" Now that I think about it, I really meant that thought. If I had not had a true love for this university, I could not have seen the light at the end of the tunnel even when deadlines were the most difficult. Of course, I did not do this job alone, would like to thank my associate editors, Holli Hargrove and Matt Pettus (for their invaluable help and for holding my hand);] our patient and dedicated adviser Brenda .
