The plan was to get a " Playboy " -type interview from Frank Joseph, Assistant Dean of Students. Two of us had on black and grey,, the other brown. Boy, were we bummed outl By his instincts, he knew we needed cheering up. Deadlines were approaching with no hope of our ever meet- ing them. " Let ' s go out and have a beer! " This statement Is so typical, but yet so loved coming from our enthusiastic eader. Our trip started when we re- alized that four people had to t into his MG (a small task for he creative minds we pos- ess.) Frank didn ' t seem to mind being cramped until he saw Campus Police and crammed my head into the gearshift. He kept his cool and slipped by the campus law en- forcers. We knew then it was going to be an exciting trip. Our destination was Gus ' Original 49 ' er. It seemed we couldn ' t get out of the car. Frank, in his usual high, laughing spirits, pulled us out, one by one. To cure our aches from the ride, we ordered a pitcher of beer and some food. Frank always seems to have the abil- ity to make our gripes and complaints go away just by lis- tening. After talking with Frank, nothing seemed to be as bad as we had thought. He really raised our spirits by telling us how he admired our creative ability and endurance. He al- ways knows what to say in a time of need. By the end of the meal, we were back to the crazy fools we are — telling Helen Keller jokes and the like. The journey back to school wasn ' t as bad since we had alcohol in our bloodstreams. We literally fell out of the car once we were back In the parking lot. Two of our party members went their on way in high spirits. Frank was giving me a lift to the Gold Nugget. He decided to join me and have a beer and socialize with the gang. He walked in and im- mediately he was surrounded by fans waiting to shake his hand and thank him for com- ing. The group that was giving the Nugget Nlte was the same fraternity that Frank helped to become a chartered chapter, Sigma Epsllon Chi. His presence was more than welcomed. Usually when you think of an Assistant Dean of Students, you think of a formal, boring person. Although his middle name is actually " Dull " (his mother ' s maiden name) he is anything but dull. Frank sports a " Joe College " Image in his preppy attire and casual per- sonality, but his hard work and dedication are reflected by the number of organizations and events which he supports. Frank has been the foundation for many activities, but the most important one to us is the revival of the yearbook. We are only able to present this book to you through his en- couragement and support. We hope this dedication can repay Frank for his many hours of understanding, help, and enthusiasm. This one ' s for you Frank Joseph, with love from your grateful staff. Frank cheers up the staff with one of Ns crazy games. The Prospector staff: Front row — Anthony Cooper. FtiH Lee. Sonya Wi- ley.

The process began with students coming here from around the United States and overseas and continued here to their destination in the Queen City. Many students filled the resi- dence halls and began their first year on their own, but for others, it was another year of discovery and growth as they continued their education pro- cess at UNCC. The long treacherous pro- cess of moving the clothes. T.V.. stereo, and all of the decorations to make the two- bed dorm room a home took up most of the day. Of course, students looked around the room and gazed out the win- dows for an hour or two, just amazed that they were really at college, wondering how they were going to be able to stand living, eating, and sleep- ing in such a small place. So many mixed feelings hid be- hind the closed doors of the dorm rooms during those first few days. The transition was difficult, especially for those who had no friends on campus or no one with whom they could communicate with. Then again, underneath all the pain and loneliness, there was such a feeling of independence and freedom. Friends were made and eventually everyth- ing fell into perspective. Finally, the sun set at UNCC with the knowledge that it would rise again bringing new dreams. Life holds no guaran- tees for anyone, just as college does not answer the questions of an uncertain future. The re- flection of the sunrise to the student can only be as beauti- ful or meaningful as that par- ticular student ' s desire to achieve it is. by: Sonya Wiley Mom helps by trying to make everything fit. Y MOVING IN 15 People just love to stand in line for Drop Add: it ' s what they come to school for 16 REGISTRATION •» Long Lines, Hot Days, And New Classes All too soon, the laid-back days of summer become the first weeks back at school. By the end of August, the UNCC student can forget about the lazy days of sunning around the pool, and can begin build- ing the courage and stamina necessary to face the barrage of long lines, hot days, and new classes that await at the beginning of each semester. First comes the physical bat- tle of moving in. Endless steps, broken elevators, and new (and sometimes strange) roommates must all be over- come and adjusted to. Then comes the first set of long lines — the wait for mealcards and telephone installation. The commuter student faces his own set of lines — those for I.D.s and parking stickers. Assuming the student sur- vives the first phase of trials, next comes the big test — registration. No one really knows the true meaning of fear and loneliness until ventur- ing forth to the gym floor, class schedule and pencil in hand, in hopes of assembling a com- plete schedule. For those who can ' t get into the gym, or for those who blow it and stand in all the wrong lines, there is Drop Add. Drop Add can last as long as a week; a week of running to the Registrar ' s of- fice, to the Math Department, then to the English Depart- ment, back to your advisor, over to the gym, etc. No one can be considered a true col- lege student until having par- ticipated in this exhausting, te- dious, and frustrating ritual of college life. But don ' t think for a minute that the worst is over and there ' s nothing but wild parties and skipped classes ahead, for now. armed with cash, check- book, or emergency funds, the UNCC student must go to the bookstore and stand in line for three hours to pay $150.00 for books which he doesn ' t want to read in the first place. They always tell students when en- tering school that they can re- sell books and buy used books inexpensively, but no one ever sells the book you need, and who in their right mind would buy your old copy of " The Joys of Peasant Life in Southern Botswana? " Finally though, classes do be- gin and all of the waiting in line and frantic running to get somewhere is over. But now mid-terms begin, reading is as- signed, and papers are due. And there in the back of your mind is the nagging knowl- edge that you paid to have the privilege to do all this, and that it starts all over again in only four months. by Lisa Jones This person isn ' t having any trouble with his schedule — Wanna ' bet on thaf REGISTRATION 17 Eddie Green, Robin Teeling.

It seems that past fashions and fads were clearly evident and easy to spot, but trends over the past year have blended into the current cul- ture and way of life, hardly causing any uproar or commo- tion. There has been no clear cut fad or trend in the past year, but rather a blending of old preferences and several new fads. The flavor of 1982- ' 83 can be described with one word — variety. The fashion world saw a di- verse melting pot of prep, western, new wave, and tradi- tional styles. The Izods. Kliens. Polos, and Vanderbilts still reigned in the designer fashion area. More and more, ideas and influences from top New York and Paris designers were seen incorporated in the tastes and dress of many UNCC stu- dents. It was the individual stu- dent though that created the unique and expressive fashion combinations spotted on cam- pus. Both audio and visual mes- sages became parts of the year ' s trends and fads, ranging from new wave bands being played on Top 40 stations to video games moving into the home. Music Television (MTV), seen on cable television, com- bined both areas to give view- ers the best of audio and visual sensations. Many of the trendy foods, dances, expressions, places to visit, games, music, and movies will quickly be forgotten and will fade into the newer and more popular fads of 1983- 1984, but their influence will re- main and contribute to what will be remembered as the year of E.T.. Reaganomics. space shuttle flights, Middle East conflicts, ERA defeats, the Knoxville World ' s Fair, and Pac Man — namely 1982-1983. by Donna Bost FASHIONS 19 Whites Go In Hot! The Hassles Of House-Cleaning Many responsibilities are placed on a student entering college, and these responsibil- ■ include the many domes- duties the student has to srtake. For the students liv- on campus, domestic du- ties seem very time-consum- ing. Duties differ among the stu- dents who live in the dorms and the students who choose Ive in the apartments. There some simple pleasures that artment dwellers enjoy that m livers can never appreci- i. Apartment dwellers can leave dirty dishes in the sinks for as long as they want. They can also have their parents up for a leisurely weekend. But. this means that certain extra do- mestic duties have to be per- formed. Those dirty dishes will Ktually have to be washed put away for future use only to be washed and put away again. A dorm liver does not have to worry very much about dirty dishes. The cafete- ria crew handles them. A visit from parents usually puts a strain on both apartment and dorm dwellers. Visits mean hid- ing all the liquor bottles and beer cans, picking up three months worth of dirty clothes, and stuffing everything else in the closet. No student wants " Ma and Pa " to know they have lived in a pigpen for the three months that have passed. Brooms, mops, clean- ers, and air fresheners are put frantically to work. The place will look spotless for only the time the parents are in town; otherwise, things usually do not seem to find their proper place. Laundry is another must. That is, unless your Mom does not mind doing three months of dirty clothes. Generally, stu- dents proceed to the local laundry mat or to the washers and dryers located on cam- pus, trying to decide which clothes are washed in hot- warm-or cold water. Mom sometimes finds a once white shirt has somehow turned pale blue, but chalks it up to exper- ience. Since students share a room in the dorms, living in them is a unique experience. Though it gives students a chance to ex- plore many possibilities for friendship and social life, it can also be a confusing and rigor- ous time. Since there is a lack of privacy, " roomies " have to maintain a sense of cleanliness. The domestic duties are shared by both and consider- ation is a big issue. Neatness can sometimes cause prob- lems, but more often than not, things work out domestically. by Demise Sneed 41 V« 111 Lock of funds is o major cause for students getting " butched " by omotuer barber friends.

(Actually, this is a PFM special) Machines provide comfort for all the caffeine-addicted students 1 Battle Of The Bu e " One of the most widely dis- cussed topics at college is food. Most people tend to think that they ' ll lose weight once they ' re at school. One popular belief supporting this theory is that students are not supposed to cook in their rooms, but what about the ex- tra burner or oven you brought anyway? There is also an idea that the food in the cafeteria is so bad that students won ' t eat it (but what about all the sand- wiches and french fries that are gobbled up?) These are just two things that lead to the " Battle of the Bulge. " Another belief is one of the utmost truth. NIGHT RAID!!! It ' s 11:00 at night and the news starts. Then someone casually mentions, " Aren ' t you hungry? " Immedi- ately things like Whoppers, ta- cos, pizzas, and candy enter into the conversation, and be- fore you know it, you ' re stuff- ing face. Suddenly you awak- en to find that you ' ve caught the " Freshman Ten. " Freshman Ten is just the ten pounds you gain in your freshman year. This doesn ' t include the future blubber that may be added. Soon you find yourself mak- ing excuses like, " It won ' t hurt to eat this candy bar if I take the stairs. " Then there ' s al- ways, " I ' ll walk it off by going to class. " Don ' t fool yourself, because the only way to avoid gaining weight is to not eat in the first place. So if you find yourself in line at the candy machine or needing the aid of a coathanger in order to get your pants zipped up, take heed, because there is no easy cure for the " Freshman Ten.

FOOD 23 Is Studying Habit Forming? - Not Likely! One obvious place where students study is in their rooms, but those of us who are fortu- nate to live on campus know that this isn ' t always the best place. This is true especially if your neighbor to the right is us- ing a blow-dryer, and the one down the hall is playing the la- test song exceedingly loud, and the person on the left is entertaining company, in addi- tion to the ones above who are majoring in dance, So for these reasons and others, most students find alternate places to study. An individual ' s per- sonality and study habits have an effect on where that stu- dent chooses to study. There aren ' t many places on campus where one can be to- tally immune from some type of noise, but if you enjoy a change of scenery, there are some places you might try. The listening room could be the place for you if you enjoy mu- sic while studying. You could also try the area around the Hechenbleikner Lake if weath- er permits. There are many buildings on campus which have study rooms (and empty lecture halls) if you prefer the classroom atmosphere. The li- brary affords a great deal of study area, and the residence halls also have study rooms, al- though at times they can be called " social " rooms. There are certainly many other places on campus where one can study, but it ' s really up to the individual to find the best place for him to sit back, relax, and study! by Alisa Foushee Mark Smith has three alternatives study, watch T.

The best way ■)d out all that is available is contact one or all of the e major areas of student vities on campus. e first major division is the s (Student Government As- ation) which encompasses ' udent organizations, clubs, smites, and sororities.

This is corn- ed of WFAE, the 49 ' er 3S, the Prospector, and skrit. Leaders from these e major areas of student )lvement are the most wledgable people to con- t for information, the above isn ' t enough, re are over fifty various js and social groups on npus which are diversified ugh to appeal to all types nterests. For residents, RHA sidence Hall Association) is jreat way to get acquaint- ed with others possessing simi- lar interests. RHA stays " in the know " of a wide range of events and also plans activities just for residents. RA ' s and RC ' s IV ' lWiUCH are those enthusiastic indivi- duals who are always willing to help students get motivated and become active in campus organizations. These are key people who can provide infor- mation to students. For an even broader expansion of in- terests, try " Extra-Versify " or " Venture " , which are student involvement organizations run by staff members. The Venture program makes contact with the natural environment by group outings such as rock climbing and backpacking. Freshmen are offered an outstanding opportunity for in- volvement in the Emerging Leaders Program. This program is basically geared toward freshmen with an interest in be- coming active in student af- fairs and campus organiza- tions. This program is an excel- lent means by which freshmen can become acquainted with campus life and various activi- ties. The Dean of Students Leadership Program is also a major broadening experience providing opportunities for per- sonal growth, leadership, and involvement. These sources provide the major areas for involvement at UNCC, however, numerous other opportunities exist. Being an active 49 ' er can be a fulfill- ing, stimulating experience with countless opportunities. by Lea Ann Phillips Organizations often raise money by selling items to the students, such as candy apples. Groups such as Intervarsity Christian Fellowship provide opportunities for involvement on campus. WHO TO CONTACT . . .

What defines school spirit? Is it the buttons, shakers, posters, and signs present on campus and at ball- games? Is it the anxious cries, excited yells, and dis- heartened sighs of specta- tors and fans? Is it the green- clad students, tumbling cheerleaders, and blaring pep band seen and heard at athletic events? These elements do define school spirit, but the true 49 ' er spirit is also seen in many other ways and areas on the UNCC campus. Enthusiasm about UNCC can certainly be found in the Mine Shaft Gym, Charlotte Coliseum, and the campus soccer field, but it can also be seen in the Cone Center cafete- ria, at the Belk Tower, and in many of the individual class- rooms and dorm rooms around campus. The true 49 ' er spirit goes beyond the shakers and buttons used to boost excitement and pride, it becomes a part of the way they view their school and their relationship to it. UNCC can ' t boast of a long history or vast alumni, but it can be proud of its rapid development, grow- ing reputation, and the ex- ploding 49 ' er spirit. Students do use the buttons, shakers, and posters to show their school spirit, but the pride starts within the individuals. and can be seen as blocks of students scream and yell at ballgames. or as students talk with pride and concern about UNCC on campus and within the community. True school spirit, the 49 ' er spirit, is something that is embedded in the student. It goes with them to ball- games, to class, to frat par- ties, to the library, and it will eventually go with them as they leave UNCC. It works to support and glorify the school and its activities now, and will continue to in the future. by Lisa Jones A captivated audience anticipates the thrill of victory Jeff White and Paul Gallimore lower their heads in disappointment after a bad call by the referee SCHOOL SPIRIT 33 Weekend Chill Out For most people, weekends usually mean going home or to some other place, but what about the people that don ' t go anywhere? Why do they stay? If you endure an occasional weekend, you ' ll probably no- tice how crowded the laundry room is. It ' s impossible to go in and get a load of clothes done within an hour. Saturdays and Sundays are popular days for laundry duty. Since the campus is desert- ed on weekends the atmo- sphere is good for study. A lot of work gets done because there are not too many dis- tractions or noises to interrupt one ' s concentration. So many people go home that there is really nothing else to do. Besides doing laundry and studying, another reason why students stay is because they really don ' t have a choice. Not everyone can go home due to the distance, lack of money, or lack of transportation. This pro- vides an unfortunate situation unless students don ' t particu- larly like home, or if they have friends to come and visit. Weekends at school do seem a little dismal, but with all the excitement that goes on through the week, there has to be a time to chill out. This peri- od helps break up the mono- tony of one week slipping into the next by giving students a chance to catch up and pre- pare for the dreaded Mon- days. by Vanessa McKinney 34 WEEKENDS WEEKENDS 35 4 The End Of The Beginning Or The Beginning Of The End?

It only happens twice a year — once in the fall and once in the spring. For about seven days students around campus walk to their destination not noticing anyone around them. They are not in their normal at- tire — instead the students are dressed in whatever is closest (sweat pants, tee-shirts, and sometimes even shorts. After the first exam they slowly walk back to their home-away- from-home to face another day. This process goes on every day and night. You can walk through the halls and smell cof- fee.

This year a new and unusual style of speech entered the minds and mouths of many UNCC stu- dents. This strange lingo is Val- ley Talk. Valley Talk began in Califor- nia ' s Napa Valley and spread rapidly across the country. This sudden popularity was, in part. caused by Frank and Moon Unit Zappa ' s hit song, " Valley Girls " . As is guite evident in this song. Valley Talk cannot just be " said " , it must be felt. There are three major qualities re- quired of a Valley Person. They include the fluctuation of the voice, the exaggeration of everything, and the frequent toss of the head. After these qualities have been mastered, the important element of Val- ley Talk must be learned — the vocabulary. The Valley vo- cabulary consists of a few sin- gle words; for example, " Oh my God, grody, like gag me with a spoon, " which translates into " I don ' t believe it, how dis- gusting. " To make it easier to under- stand your local Valley person, here is a partial listing of the most frequently used words and phrases; but be careful — Valley Talk can be habit form- ing. FOR SURE — Absolutely; a term of being in agreement, often preceeded by " like. " GAG ME WITH A SPOON Something that is really gross, disgusting; usually in reply to a statement made by another party. GRODY — Not pleasant, gross, nasty. I ' M SO SURE — Means I really don ' t believe that at all, it ' s totally unlikely. LIKE — A flavoring word with no real meaning; used several times in a sentence for no known reason. NOT TOO — Not very, not at all; used as in " not too cool " . OH MY GOD — An exclamation of disbelief. TIE ME TO A SPARROW — Come on, not true; I don ' t believe you. TOT ALLY — To the fullest extent. TO THE MAX — Totally, to the full extent. YA ' KNOW — Read my mind, figure out what I mean because I really can ' t express myself any better; often preceeded by " like " . ZA — This is a term used to mean pizza, as in " Let ' s go get some za, man. " by Donna Bost and Hank Foreman 38 LINGO HANDBOOK t I Can you talk Valley with an accent " Like wow man.

Charlotte is the home of many of the commuters who make it their daily routine to travel to and from compus each day. A smaller number of students travel into Charlotte from surrounding areas to at- tend class. A large number of the com- muters who live in Charlotte rely on public transportation to get to and from school. There are two express buses, better known as the Mean Green Shuttle Machine, which pro- vide students with convienent and inexpensive access to campus from home. An even larger number of students drive daily into Charlotte. Parking spaces in several lots are avail- able for these commuters. There are several facilities at UNCC which were built for commuter convienence The Bonnie Cone Center located on the far side of campus in- cludes several features for commuter students. For in- stance, the Commuter Lounges provide focal points for both day and evening commuter students, providing places to relax, study, play cards, meet and talk with oth- ers. There are also the North- east, Northwest, Mcknight, and Caucus lounges on the second floor of the Cone Cen- ter. Other lounges are located in the Colvard Building and in the Denny-Barnard Overpass The University Center also houses the Commuter Cafete- ria, Information Desk, Music Lis- tening Lounge, Gameroom, Candy Shoppe. and Craft Cel- lar. The New York Deli in the bookstore serves various kinds of sandwiches, and the Denny Snakebar (Hole in the Wall) serves fast foods and snacks. The Rathskellar, located on the lower level of the Residence Hall Cafeteria, is designed in a " pub style " decor and serves pizza and sandwiches. Live en- tertainment is provided on Thursday and Friday nights. Commuter life at UNCC dif- fers greatly from that of on- campus residents, but the ac- tivities and events arranged for students are designed to in- clude the commuter student in university life and activities, and are aimed at building in- volvement from all UNCC stu- dents — commuters included. by Anthony Cooper fe -- " ■ sf _ Commuters appear to be " bummed out " as they are relieved from classes for the day COMMUTER LIFE 41 Living In A Cubicle Dorm life is one of the most interesting exper- iences a person encounters at school. It enables one to be independent and at the same time meet a unique set of people. A dorm student first meets the demands of college by getting up to go to class. But then there are those who just can ' t seem to make it. They do just enough to get by ... if that much. If getting to class isn ' t a problem, then there is al- ways the person who seems deaf and can only hear the stereo by its vibrations. In these cases, a pair of ear- plugs could be of use, but this is doubtful. However, there is an advantage to this. If you don ' t have a ste- reo, it doesn ' t matter, be- cause you don ' t need one. Sometimes it is difficult to study in the dorms with all the noise, but usually stu- dents are looking for an ex- cuse not to study. Life is never lonely in the dorms. There are always at least 300 people around with whom to socialize. This includes the gatherings around the tube to cheer on a team, or to cry over the soaps. Also, where there ' s a crowd, there ' s booze to help cure any problem for the time being. Such games as quarters, buzz, and chug- a-lug are over-ruling back- gammon, cards, and stud- ies, whereas hangovers over-rule class. There is really very little change from these aspects of dorm life. From day to day, this cycle just seems to repeat itself over and over again. by Vanessa McKinney " Oh Tom, I don ' t like for you to see me this way.

For example, there is no rent due on the fifteenth of each month, and no security deposit is reguired The apartments are closer to campus. Utilities are split four ways rather than two. ana each person has their own private, furnished bedroom The apartments also offer more freedom and indepen- dence than the residence halls. The apartment RA ' s do not reguire the residents to show their I.D. ' s before they can go in their apartments. The apartment residents can cook their own meals, eat whenever they like, and eat whatever they like. The stu- dents in the residence halls are reguired to be on the meal plan. Meals are always at the same time and the menu sel- dom varies Apartment residents are. for the most part, satisfied with where they live. There are 749 students living in the three phases of apartments. If that ' s an indication of how students feel about apartment life, there should be four more phases built I Residents of the apartments have positive things to say about their lifes- tyle. Tina Rochelle. a senior HDL major, lived in the dorms for three years. This year she lives in Phase II and loves it! " The apartment is more private. I ' m off the meal plan and can cook my own food. I feel more independent and I can sleep at night. I ' m able to save mon- ey. It is a lot guieter so I ' m able to study. I wouldn ' t go back to The living room of a Phase III apartment produces happiness and contentment in a student the dorms. " David Hartley, a senior Criminal Justice major, really likes livi ng in the apart- ments. He said apartment liv- ing was better than the dorms because there is more privacy and freedom. He also said it was more on an adult level of learning, which provides a bet- ter college experience. James Moore, a junior architecture major, said, " You have some- thing for yourself in the apart- ments. The food is better be- cause you cook it yourself and it doesn ' t cost as much. I like the living room It makes the apartment more sociable. The carpet is nice too! " Apartment living offers a dif- ferent lifestyle that adds a whole new perspective to the entire college experience Once someone tries apart- ment life, it is impossible to go back to the residence halls. by Lea Caldwell APARTMENT LIFE 45 1.. . - — - ■- r y • - - - -- s -• • - . • •». , 82- , 83 Review What A Year!

To this day, no one meaning has been discovered that pleases all three groups concerned: adolescents, teenagers, and family-orient- ed adults. Pre-teens view the tower as " a large cigar stuck in the ground. " Teenagers and col- lege students perceive the ob- scene idea that the structure resembles a large erect " or- gan. " The viewpoint of the tower being an enormous fountain pen or an orangewood cuticle pusher is the most common comment from the adult group Actually, all three groups are totally incorrect in their think- ing. The Belk Tower, a gift from the Belk family and organiza- tions in memory of William Hen- ry Belk, is a symbol of UNCC ' s upward reach for high aca- demic standards. Music that lifts the spirits of everyone on campus rings from the carillion So the next time you pass our 147-foot monument, think of the intended meaning ana be proud to be a 49er. by Anthony Cooper and Hank Foreman A student is inspired to concentrate on studies by the Belk Tower The foundation of the Belk Tower is sometimes mistaken for a bed 48 BELK TOWER J— BELK TOWER 49 4 Warm Weather Studies? Summer school sessions at UNCC: the bookstore charges outrageous prices for the books; people live in the resi- dence halls and the apart- ments; commuters race for a parking place at the meters; the buses make early runs to UNCC at 8:00. 12:00 and 5:00; and the Belk Tower chimes. There are tests to study for and homework to do. But like a ma- gician ' s act, all is not as it seems. Summer school is a unique educational opportuni- ty in which everyone should participate. Enrollment in both sessions of school last summer was 7,142 students. There were people everywhere. It looked like ev- eryone who attended the spring semester last year de- cided to come back for more. Rumor has it that summer school is the best time to go to school. Professors aren ' t as de- manding and uptight; the work load is lighter. In other words, the whole summer school at- mosphere is " laid back. " David Hartley, a senior Criminal Jus- tice major said, " Summer school is different than the fall or spring semesters. The work- loads are lighter and learning is more at east. " Deborah Helms, a junior HDL major said, " It was an experience. I loved it. " For most people, summer school was a chance to relax, cath up in a few credit hours, and take some of those hard classes that are avoided dur- ing the regular year. Not ev- eryone felt like summer school was as laid back as it had been made out to be. Rachel Gunta, a senior Criminal Justice major said, " Summer school 50 SUMMERS was fun. It was more relaxed, but there was a feeling of hur- riedness to get everything done in such a short period of time. " One senior business ad- ministration major, Denise Sneed, went on to say that she hated summer school. " It took up all my time. " Another area of variation is the individual ' s reasoning for coming to summer school. Some people come to take classes so they will be able to graduate early. There are oth- ers who take classes to catch up on lost hours — either lost through transferring or by low grades. There are those stu- dents who came to take a class taught by a professor who won ' t be at UNCC the next semester. Last, but not least, there are those diehards who love school and can ' t get enough of it during the regular year. These students take the classes for the fun of it. For whatever reason stu- dents attend, summer school is a valid, if not unusual learning experience that will affect the student — he ' ll never be the same again! by Lea Caldwell Some students prefer to come to summer school because the atmosphere is " laid bock " Outdoor studying — a familiar sight during warm temperatures SUMMERS 5 1 P.J. stands for " Plum Juiced " , and these " juiced " students surely weren ' t standing for much longer. You can always tell a good Chi Phi jam by the turnout. 52 PARTIES College Sure Gets In The Way Of College Life! " Let ' s Party " — it ' s that fa- miliar expression we ' ve all heara before. It ' s hard to be- lieve that between classes and other projects, students have the time to get together, relax, and party. It may be hara to believe, but no matter how bogged down students get, they can ana do find the time to socialize with friends. Time away from classwork is an important part of college life, and what better way to es- cape than to go out and have a hell of a good time? With such a large selection of parties available on cam- pus, it ' s often hard for students to choose which ones to at- tend. Some students find that it ' s easier to go to them all, rather than having to compli- cate their lives with a hard de- cision. Some of the more pop- ular parties on campus include: fraternity parties given in hopes of attracting girls, and sorority parties thrown to bring in boys, and the ever popular mixers where the Greeks min- gle with their own kind; dorm room parties which usually grow into large parties, base- ment parties given to com- pensate for the Thursday night ban on house parties (and which often end by the pulling of the fire alarm), and the Ha- waiian parties which are often comparea to paradise (with students attending in hopes of collecting leis). So if it seems that your as- signments are growing faster than you are able to keep up with, there is always an alter- native on campus. Drop your books, forget the test, and go out and party! You ' ll feel bet- ter that you did. by Vanessa McKinney PARTIES 53 Virginia Edwards, financial aid spokesperson. Cuts, Cuts, And More Cuts In the history books, 1982 will be remembered as a year of budget cuts and drawbacks. When asked if the budget cuts had a great effect on students here at UNCC, Mrs. Virginia Ed- wards of Financial Aid said that the 15% cutback has caused a financial strain for many stu- dents. Although much waste has been eliminated through budget reductions, further cuts would only tighten the sgueeze on those who really need the assistance. On the subject of alternative sources of aid, Edwards suggested that students apply for private scholarships and try to find part-time jobs with short hours. She also expressed hope for more job opportunities closer to the campus and for the es- tablishment of a better trans- portation system for getting students to their jobs. With the tightening economy and the lessening of available aid mon- ey, more UNCC students may have to look to alternative, and perhaps less convenient, sources of tuition funds. by Hank Foreman 54 FINANCIAL AID - • It seems if Reagen has his way. the cuts in student aid will never stop.

It seemed that the globe of the world contracted into the main quadrangle of the cam- pus. There was not only a vari- ety of cultures represented, but also there were many ways in which one could ex- perience these cultures. The festival presented countries from South America, the Mid- dle and Far East, Europe and Africa. One could feast his eyes upon alluring posters of exotic lands, colorful native dress, rugs, and artwork. Eggrolls at the Vietnam table tempted many a visitor ' s palate. Music of Spain, Germany, and the Middle East added to the joyful atmosphere. The people of each culture blended into one harmonious whole. All were unique people celebrating their individual identity together. by Kelly Mourino Crowds enjoy the showtime variety at the festival. INTERNA TIONAL FESTIVAL 57 Media Comes To Life! Major changes have taken place in the student media of UNCC. One revision is a name change of the yearbook. " Rogues and Rascals " , the previous name, is gone and so is the apathy of the previous staff, much thanks to the help of a recent graduate, Teresa Skipper. The Prospector editor, Sheryl Waddell, and assistant editor, Phil Lee, have been in- strumental in the present orga- nization of this year ' s book. Another highly beneficial factor in the revival of the yearbook was the training ses- sions presented by Les Howell and Mary Rae Denton last spring on campus. These ses- sions provided insight and en- couragement to those staff members who participated. A few enthusiastic members also ventured to New York City last March for a training workshop. " The Carolina Journal " also saw a name change, as well as a slight modification in for- mat with the arrival of the new editor, Jeff Taylor. The Carolina Journal became the bi-weekly " 49er Times. " This publication continues to serve the Universi- ty community well. The 49er Times keeps students informed of on- and off -campus events, political affairs, club and orga- nizational activities, as well as 49er personalities. " Sanskrit " , under the leader- ship of Susan Byron, provides a forum for various art expres- sions. Poetry, drawings, short stories, and photography are found in this biannually pub- lished magazine. 1982 saw Sanskrit broaden its audience by making the magazine avail- able to the community. San- skrit is very diversified and stim- ulating, especially to those who appreciate a more cultur- al student publication. by Lea Ann Phillips Danny Grossman and Vanessa McKinney ' layout ' together for the Prospector 58 STUDENT MEDIA Chris Bloxharn smiles as she hosts the afternoon show for the campus radio station.

Students usually take hours off from bookwork whenever snow falls in Charlotte. Since snow only falls occasionally in this area, schoolwork takes second place to winter-won- derland fun. The pasttime that seems to be the attention grabber of the UNCC students is sledding. Students can turn practically anything capable of support- ing their weight into a sled. Trays from the cafeteria are swiped and usually are the first objects used. Thrillseekers and adventurers find trays dull, so other unique objects are used. Chairs (especially the ones with the metal legs) are excel- lent sleds, but they are difficult to maneuver. Once the chair starts down a hill, there is no stopping it. Passengers usually have to abort and take the punishment of their injuries in stride. There are some students that go all out in their quest for the ultimate sled. These are the students that will go to any extreme, pay any price to reach complete fulfillment of sledding fun and adventure. Apartment natives have been known to disassemble bar tops, picnic tables, and re- move doors and use them as sleds. Although students think snow means fun and no classes, uni- versity officials think it means trouble, and they work franti- cally to make decisions con- cerning the welfare and safety of the university and its stu- dents and faculty members. It is usually left up to the officials as to whether classes will be held whenever it snows. Since UNCC has so many commuters and driving in snow is so haz- ardous, classes are often can- celled much to the chargin of the school officials but much to the happiness of the stude nts. by Dense Sneed A worn path is a tremendous help for students in keeping their freezing footsies dry SNOW 61 ' PENNSYLVANIA KEYSTONE STATE The studying student 62 WHERE STUDENTS COME FROM f 1 I | ■m i I ta - A Melting Pot? Students at UNC-Charlotte come from a wide range of towns, states, and even for- eign countries. It should not be assumed that a resident 49er whose permanent home is in California drives 3000 miles to and from school everyday. 49ers whose homes are in oth- er states or countries manage to commute to and from school from nearby areas sur- rounding UNCC. Charlotte is the focalpoint for most of UNCC ' s commut- ers. In fact, approximately 40% of all commuters travel from within Charlotte. There are several cities within driving dis- tance which house a number of UNCC ' s commuters; for in- stance, Albemarle, Belmont, Concord, Gastonia, Kannapo- lis, Monroe, Statesville. Not only does UNCC have commuters whose permanent homes are in North Carolina, but students from other states also attend UNCC. South Carolina is where most out of state commuters either commute or reside in permanently. Other states in- clude California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kan- sas, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. Most of the states that stu- dents originate from are in the eastern or central part of the country. Several western states are also represented by residents on campus. There is a very small per- centage of students whose permanent homes are in a for- eign land. Some of those coun- tries include: South Africa, Venezuela, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong. The Netherlands, West Germany, and Pakistan. In some ways, UNCC can be considered a great melting pot when the various distant, exotic, and exciting places where some of our commuters call home are revealed. Those students from both near and far are what determine the character of UNCC and add to its variety, diversity, and scope. by Anthony Cooper WHERE STUDENTS COME FROM 63 A m- $i!

Work! Believe it or not, there are some students on campus who hold jobs as well as attend class. There are several rea- sons why students work. Some are just looking for ways to kill spare time (is there really such a thing in the life of a college student?), while others work to gain experience in their career field. Bill Nelson of Lexington. N.C. works in the student com- puter center to increase his knowledge as a computer sci- ence major. Others work in the Chemistry and Physics labs tak- ing inventory of lab equip- ment. EAD major Sam Robert- son works at WBT radio in the Engineering department. Although the desire to kill free time and gain experience are reasons for some UNCC students to enter the work force while still in school, a larger number are forced into the work force because of lack of immediate funds. Unfor- tunately, most college stu- dents are usually in need of money ana UNCC students in- vade the working community each semester looking for em- ployment. You can find them typing, filing, pumping gas, taking movie tickets, and sell- ing items in all kinds of stores and businesses, just as Robbie Bald sells tuxedos at Belk ' s in Eastland Mall. Whatever is the incentive for entering the job market, stu- dents who work face the same hassels as full-timers in the work force, yet must also keep up with school assignments and work. It seems to be a Catch- 22 situation for many — in or- der to be able to attend school to learn how to work in a certain profession, many stu- dents must work to get through school! by Tom Roff 66 WORK WORK 67 A Graduation ' 82 The final activity of a UNCC student, the moment of glory after years of toil, the signal for a new way of life to begin — all of these are parts of Gradu- ation Day for UNCC seniors. On May 15, 1982, 1,300 seniors filled the Charlotte Coliseum to receive the paper diplomas which symbolized four years of work and hopefully much new- gained knowledge. The usually noisy and bustling Coliseum took on a hushed and some- what reverent air of excite- ment as the 7,000 parents, family members, and friends watched the black-robed graduates fill the rows of seats on the Coliseum floor. Eyes strained to recognize a certain graduate enter, and mothers cried, brothers and sisters pointed, and cameras flashed as that s pecial graduate was spotted. The expected pro- gram of music, speeches, and advice to the new graduates followed, ana soon each de- partment stood as Chancellor Fretwell orally conferred de- grees. The individual gradu- ates were awarded diplomas at aepartmental exercises on campus later in the day. The entire 1982 graduating class numbered 1,906, which was the largest class to graduate from UNCC.

Festivities began on Thursday of that week as the Homecoming Court was intro- duced in the Cone Center Cafeteria. The contestants showed their spirit by wearing wildly bizarre costumes. Grossly teased hair, taunting miniskirts, and gawdy costume jewelry were among the notable fash- ions of the event. Each girl had her own cheering section as they were all sponsored by in- dividual groups and organiza- tions. Commenting on the event, one student said, " They ' ve sure got nerve. " Fri- day followed with a pair of events hosted by the 49er cheerleading sguad. Following a sparsley attended but very spirited pep rally, the party moved outside of the Mine Shaft for the bonfire. Despite the cold evening, Playmate coolers were in large number as cans of brew were passed around. More cheers and chants were led as the flame of the fire dwindled. The fire was low, the beer was gone, and with that the hearty bon- fire was over. The final event came with Saturday ' s Home- coming parade. The parade, which marched down Tryon Street, featured all members of the Homecoming Court and many floats entered by frater- nal organizations. It was per- haps the most organized event of the week, yet the least attenaed. In any case, the Homecoming-week activi- ties went smoothly and served to excite spirit into students. Saturday evening came with the Coliseum well-attend- ed by an enthusiastic crowd. The halftime Homecoming show began as each member of the court and her escort were introduced by the Colise- um announcer. Again each girl was cheered on, only this time by much larger cheering sec- tions. Entire seating areas would jump up and cheer. This ritual was carried to the ex- treme as one group of about fifty or more students gave the same resounding round of ap- plause for three girls who were introduced consecutively. After all was said and done. Debra Thompson, sponsored by the Alpha Kappa Alpha so- rority and the Black Student Union, emerged as the newly- crowned Homecoming Queen. But the real excitement for most students and fans came with the second half of the game. The 49ers returned to the court trailing Sun Belt Con- ference rival South Florida by more than ten points and the 72 HOMECOMING 49er fans cheer for their favorite team during the exciting Home- corning game. USF Bulls eventually increased their lead to a 17-point margin, and things looked bleak for the 49er ' s. Suddenly UNCC scored two guick baskets and the crowd was on its feet. The team began a long and diffi- cult struggle to catch up with the Bills that took well over ten minutes to achieve. In fact, it was not until Randy Davis ' 3- point jumpshot with 16 sec- onds showing on the clock that the 49ers did finally catch up with Lee Rose ' s Florida team That 3-pointer was the last basket of regulation play as the score was 87-87 — and the fans loved it. However, their joy was short-lived as USF outscored UNCC 19-7 in over- time play making the final score 106-94. Although the score does not indicate it, this game was perhaps one of the most exciting games seen in Charlotte since the era of Ce- dric " Combread " Maxwell in the 1970 ' s, Homecoming winded down as an alumni dance was held at a nearby hotel and most students journeyed to the par- ty of their choice The members of the 1983 Homecoming Court are: Re- nee Baity (Residence Hall Asso- ciation), Pam Wisely (Hol- shouser Hall), Tania Helms (ASCE), Diane Sorenson (Pi Kappa Phi), Donna Stroupe (Kappa Sigma), Susan Collins (Sigma Nu), Katina Huntley (Chi Omega), Gina Linney (Alpha Delta Pi), Carol Bailey (Sigma Phi Epsilon), Meg Haley (Sec- ond House Moore Sanford), Melanie Falls (Delta Zeta), Gina Brown (Alpha Kappa Psi), Ro- sanne Childs (Scott Hall), Debra Thompson (Black Student Union), Robin Panther (Zeta Tau Alpha), Carlene Ricci (Sig- ma Epsilon Chi).

ISA Sv ■ An Overview Of Charlotte Charlotte is truly an " Emer- ald City " in the wonderland of American cities. She sparkles like a jewel nestled in the rolling Piedmont that adjoins the great Appalachians. With au- tumn in the Blue Ridge, winter white snow skiing, and the Peautiful beaches of the North Carolina coast, it is no wonder that Charlotte is such a gem of a city. Although Charlotte has four distinct seasons, the Piedmont area is generally protected from extreme weather condi- tions by the mountains. One can enjoy a variety of sports throughout most of the calen- aar year. Summer, spring, and fall are ideal for tennis, base- ball and water sports Charlotte can trace her roots back to England ' s royal- ty, for she is the namesake of Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III. The county sur- rounding Charlotte, known as Mecklenburg, is named for the Queen ' s birthplace Char- lotte ' s thriving spirit and inde- pendence was witnessed when General Cornwallis ' regi- ment was met with such swarming opposition that he referred to this place as a " hornet ' s nest " of rebellion. Charlotte is the center of a 12 county market area re- ferred to as Metrolina. Not only aoes Charlotte offer beautiful homes, excellent educational facilities, and a variety of re- creation, but it also offers ex- citing business and industrial accomplishments as well For instance. Charlotte is a leading financial center with the lar- gest banking resources of any city in the Southeast Charlotte Downtown Charlotte is also a leaaing textile center with 15% of the nation ' s textile workers living in the immedaite Metrolina area Charlotte is an optimum market location hav- ing eighteen of the nation ' s nineteen leading market cen- ters within a 650 mile radius. Transportation is a major factor in the continued growth of Charlotte Countless truck- ing firms use Charlotte as a base for their southeastern op- erations The ultra-modern Douglas International Airport serves Charlotte and the entire region as a port of entry and export The airport is within minutes from most downtown offices, and continues to please both businessmen and visitors with the streamlined ef- forts of the city planners for ef- ficient jet travel. The major bus lines that operate out of the city are an excellent form of transportation and are mail service alternatives for city residents and visitors. The ma- jor highways are well planned for rapid access throughout the city, and Charlotte is fortu- nate to have major intersect- ing highways. Along with the excellent railway service, the interstate highways connect Mecklenburg County with most of the major markets east of the Mississippi River Communications are the most advanced with electron- ic data processing readily available to all business from agriculture to insurance. Also, media communications are highly effective with newspa- pers, television, and radio pro- viding valuable news and infor- mation to meet the needs of the general public. Although Charlotte is the lar- gest city in the Carolinas. she is small enough to avoid some of the problems of other major cities. The major concern of Charlotte City Government is " growth management " with- out undue restrictions. Char- lotte ' s leaders feel that a prop- er balance must be obtained between growth and industry so that Charlotte can continue to be an iaeal place to live for many generations to come. by Anthony Cooper Mnni ff»ffffi initiiri iMmiiu HMffflH Mflflilli I.

University Inspires Growth The University planned com- munity is a large scale devel- opment project that has been undertaken by UNCC, the local planning commission, and oth- er public and private institu- tions. The community is being designed with two missions in mind, to redirect residential growth toward the Northeast portion of Mecklenburg Coun- ty and to create an orderly and fulfilling environment for the UNCC and University Re- search Park Community (URP). Two main components of the community are UNCC and URP. In recent years, noted growth has taken place in both of these areas. UNCC is now the most rapidly growing uni- versity in the Carolinas, with over 10,000 students and about 900 faculty and staff members. Not unlike UNCC, URP has also experienced rapid growth since its establishment eleven years ago by UNCC and the greater Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. It is growth like this that is making the University planned community become a reality. It is with the combined support of state and local govern- ments, the UNCC community, and the Charlotte area itself that these not too distant dreams can become con- crete realities for UNCC. by Hank Foreman Students who walk across the campus daily can attest that UNCC is certainly more spread out than this picture suggests. 80 UNIVERSITY CITY v y s Freedom Park A Day In Charlotte Charlotte is a city where there is always something to do. and it has the ability to ac- comodate many kinds of stu- dent ' s tastes. For the average UNCC stu- dent, a day in Charlotte can be filled with a variety of events, ranging from cultural seminars to rock concerts to a day of just loafing. For in- stance. Ovens Auditorium, lo- cated on East Independence Blvd., can bring out the culture and intellect in any student. Ovens Auditorium is an audito- rium which seats 2,500 persons, and it presents operas, con- certs, Broadway plays, and the latest in dramatic and musical entertainment. Ovens is also the home of the Charlotte Symphony, the Oratorio Sing- ers, and the Charlotte Opera. The Charlotte Coliseum is a multi-entertainment facility, of- fering everything from circuses and rodeos, to ice shows, con- certs, conventions and sports under the silver superdome. Seating capacities are varied according to each event. For instance. 13,500 fans can be seated for a full stage show; 9,575 spectators for ice hock- ey; and 11666 for basketball. The Coliseum is also known as the home court for our Forty- Niners. Carowinds is a 73-acre theme park which straddles the North Carolina South Carolina line, 10 miles south of Charlotte on I-77 and is known as home of the two-million dol- lar roller coaster, " Thunder Road. " Freedom Park is the ideal place for the student who likes to relax and enjoy nature. Home of the annual " Festival in the Park " , it brings together thousands of partici- pants and spectators in the 82 DA YTIME CHARLOTTE fields of performing and graph- ic arts. The Charlotte Nature Museum is situated in a 30- acre wooded area adjacent to Freedom Park in the south- east area of Charlotte. The museum contains live animals, exhibits on nature and early man, a planetarium. Hall of Health, gift shop, and nature trials, ideal for any animal or art loving student. Discovery Place, a branch of the Char- lotte Nature Museum is a " hands on " museum of sci- ence, technology and natural history, emphasizing exhibits and programs in which visitors are encouraged to take an active part. For students who enjoy the arts, there is Spirit Square, Charlotte ' s uptown center designed for people- oriented activities in all as- pects of the arts in Charlotte. " Performance Place " provides the community with a fully equipped, professionally man- aged, 800 seat theatre and concert facility. For those stu- dents who like excitement, danger, death-defying feats, and thrills, the Charlotte Motor Speedway is just for them. The Speedway has been tagged by the auto racing media as the premier motor racing facili- ty in North America. The newly built, 3 million grandstand Me- gastructure sets on 554 acres of land in southern Cabarrus County, in Harrisburg. This is just a sampling of what the city of Charlotte has to of- fer the UNCC student. Stu- dents often take advantage of these activities, but many students also set out on their own quests for new excite- ment and activity around Charlotte. by Anthony Cooper V ■ m ■ »j r " Bk " " " — j. ■=-■ I FREEDOM Ml — 4 ft . i - I • ' J ;tland Mall Discovery Place DA YTIME CHARLOTTE 83 84 HOT SPOTS Hot Spots There are many different types of students here at UNCC with different tastes, cultural backgrounds, political views, religious preferences, social status, and native homelands But there is one thing that most UNCC students have in common — the desire to venture out into the big city of Charlotte and search for a good time. Charlotte has numerous nightspots which cater to many kinds of tastes. These clubs feature disco, easy listen- ing music. Although there are many places to " hang-out " in Charlotte, only a few are able to draw regular crowds and even these clubs go in and out of vogue quickly. The Dixie Electric Co. is one of the popular nightclubs now in Charlotte. Dixie is located in a renovated grocery store, and specializes in disco music and flashing lights. This club usually draws a large 18-20 year old crowd. Shenanigans is a restaurant during the day which turns into a nightspot featuring pop, rock, and beach music. Friday ' s is also a restaurant club popular with UNCC students. The Fogcutter on Albemarle Road has no cover charge and beer, wine, and mixed drinks are available. It features live disc jockeys and is only 15 min- utes from campus. Whisphers is on the south side of Charlotte and draws the more tradition- al, preppy, older crowd. The four-sided bar must be at least twice as big as the small dance floor. The Cinema and Drafthouse is the place for those who like to see a movie (for only $100) and have a beer while relaxing in a big, comfortable chair. 2001 -VIP is the club for those over 21. The ballroom often features unusual events, such as costume parties, wine test- ing, and dance contests. Non- members pay a cover charge when they enter with a mem- ber. These are but a sampling of the many nightspots which can lure an unsuspecting UNCC student from his studies and projects. by Anthony Cooper HOT SPOTS 85 w Downtown Charlotte — constantly " under construction. " Community Influence A major university these days not only educates students, it also promotes community and industrial growth in the sur- rounding area. A UNCC study shows that the university will probably draw computer, publishing, biological, and medical companies ana ser- vices to the UNCC area within the next 5 to 10 years. IBM Cor- poration and Verbatim Inc. have already located in the Charlotte area and the avail- ability ot quality professors and university resources will hope- fully persuade other compan- ies to settle in Charlotte. UNCC is the fastest growing university in the state system and its in- terrelatedness with the com- mercial and industrial commu- nity must be realized ana nur- tured. Dr. Douglas Orr, Jr., Vice Chancellor of Research and Public Services, stated that the university and its potential suc- cess has influenced many firms to locate in Charlotte, firms that otherwise would have chosen other sites. For exam- ple, IBM decided to build in Charlotte because of UNCC ' s master program in Engineering. He also pointed out that the university attracts firms for economic development and is a factor in higher quality firms choosing Charlotte as a base city. A University Place and Re- search Park is in the plans for the future, in hopes of influenc- ing new higher technology bu- sinesses to make Charlotte their new home. by Lisa Jones UNIVERSITY RESEARCH PARK ■ Collins Aikman r Allstate Reeves Brothers 1 University Research Park is located adjacent to UNCC. 86 UNCC ' S INFLUENCE UNCC ' S master program in Engineering influenced IBM to build in Charlotte » i t Indep t: Companies such as Delmar find Charlotte a good locotion becouse of the large-city opportunities.

Well yes, but now also in Charlotte The Queen City is fast becoming the cul- tural hub of the Carolinas by being the home of many per- forming groups, by the pro- posed expansion of the Mint Museum, and by becoming a regular stop for many touring companies and concerts. What could be more exciting than all this activity in the arts ' ' Now students don ' t have to wait for specially scheduled events because most of these cultural opportunities are avail- able year-round in Charlotte. Charlotte has a permanent symphony and opera com- pany, both of which have been gaining national recogni- tion for years These two groups perform the great works in their area to the ap- plause of many Charlotteans There is also Spirit Square and the many colleges in the area which provide various kinds of dramatic performances for those interested in the theatre. Spirit Square presents jazz and folk music, local play readings, and live performances. Local colleges attract almost every type of cultural event, from student plays to guest lectur- ers. The Mint Museum houses many local paintings and sculptures and some pieces by world famous artists. Discovery Place is a " touch " museum, housing exhibits for all ages. Cultural opportunities abound in Charlotte, many are obvious, others require more effort to locate. The UNCC stu- dent can rest assured that cul- ture is alive and well in the community, in different forms to suit all students. by Daniel Grossman The Mint ■ horizon expansion on the CUL JURE 89 Working For Fun? There are many students at U.N.C.C. who work for a living, but not all of them are out there simply to draw that pay- check. There are a few who are trying to survive in the working world as part of their college education. Three of these programs at U.N.C.C. are offered by the College of Human Develop- ment and Learning, the Col- lege of Nursing, and the Col- lege of Engineering. Linda Tate is a senior in Early Childhood Education. As part of her educational exper- ience, she is a student teacher at Villa Heights Elementary here in Charlotte. Linda teach- es a class of twenty-six kinder- garten children and states that this program has shown her what the real world of teach- ing is like . . . " Its been a great learning experience. " Trisha Heatherly is currently working at Memorial Hospital in order to round our her educa- tion. Trisha. who is a junior. works under a supervisor as a shift nurse, performing many of the duties that a Registered Nurse performs. Trish says that she is happy that after building up all that knowledge, she fi- nally gets to apply it in real situ- ations. The College of Engineering incorporates a CO-OP pro- gram into its curriculum, such that the students work for a firm in the area, in order to fur- ther their experience in the field of engineering. The stu- dent is given an assignment which is coupled with an engi- neering seminar in which he must give a report on the work they completed the previous semester. All in all, these programs pro- vide an excellent opportunity for students to get a taste of what working in their respec- tive fields will be like, and pro- vides priceless experience which will make them more competitive in the job market Nurse makes light shine for young child Better active today than radiooctive tomorrow. 90 STUDENTS WHO WORK IN COMMUNITY i », A fc % ■ ' ■ J i I -A % y v 3 First- Year Coach Wissel Introduces New Style Of Play After practice one after- noon, first year coach Hal Wis- sel shared some comments on the adjustments he had to face when moving and joining the staff at UNCC. Coach Wis- sel says that coaching the team was not a hard adjust- ment for him, though he adds that the players had to adjust to his style of coaching be- cause he is a very demanding coach. From the beginning, Wissel told each player he would have every opportunity to make the team. All the players had to do was play hard, and play smart ball. The team was eager for this kind of philosophy. They want- ed a coach to drive them and to discipline them. The players had to understand and learn how to become better play- ers. They had to discipline themselves in individual and team practices. One has to be certain to learn the details of how to do the drill right, but most important, that one does each drill as hard as one can. Coach Wissel also shared his attitude on winning and losing. " The difference between the two isn ' t that great. It ' s under- standing that you don ' t do practice half-speed, and play a game full-speed. " The play- ers knew if they would do the fundamentals the right way, they would definitely get back into competitive shape. Melvin Johnson is the only re- turning starter this year. John- son talks about how the team had to adjust to Wissel ' s style of coaching. Wissel leads a fastbreak style team. The team fastbreak breeds more now than in the past, so that means the team is in better condition. Johnson also says that since the team has to hus- tle more, they play more of a team ballgame. When talking about how the coach ran practices and conditioned his ballplayers, Johnson says that Coach Wissel sharpened their fundamental skills, and elimi- nated " playground habits. " After each practice, the play- ers go through drills which add to individual improvement. To get the players into the spirit of the basketball season, Coach Wissel makes the play- ers promote the ballgames, so that the students know where and when the games are be- ing played. Coach Wissel has also managed to get some commercials for the team, and has tried to get the fans in- volved in the basketball pro- gram. Wissel comments, " The people who are missing out on the games are the ones that are missing out in being a part of their college. The difference in pro and college basketball is the college students. " The UNCC men ' s basketball schedule is progressively get- ting tougher each year. With the improvements in coaching techniques and the desire to improve, our basketball team is something to be proud of. Lack of support will hinder this program somewhat.

But that ' s not the case with the 1982- 83 edition of the UNCC women ' s bas- ketball team. There ' s an air of opti- mism as first-year coach Ann Payne adds four transfers and two freshmen to a nucleus of six returning players who will be competing at the Division I level for the first time in the school ' s history. A big key to the team ' s success will be the ability to integrate the person- alities and skills of the players and coaches. " It will be important for us to work as one unit while establishing the philos- ophy of the program and gauging what each player can do for the team, " says Payne of her first year at the 49er helm. The position that will be most impor- tant to this transition will be at point guard. " When you have a new of- fense and new guards, then there is no doubt that this is the key to the team ' s success, " Payne said. Payne has almost everything need- ed for this position from returning sen- iors Kim Kelley and Maria Byars. Kelly (5.5 ppg, 51 assists), a gifted floor leader who played every game of the ' 81-82 season, should contribute a great deal with her speed and quick- ness. Byars, (4.2 ppg, 1.7 rpg), who sat out the last eight games of 1982 with a foot injury, will help Kelley with the point duties. Despite the injury, Byars was second on the team in assists (52) and will be counted on to provide the same kind of floor direction. The second guard spot should be dominated by N.C. State transfer Can- dy Lucas, who will not be eligible until the end of December. Lucas, with her extreme quickness and unbelievable penetrating ability, should be one of Payne ' s top players this season. The 100 WOMEN ' S BASKETBALL sophomore should provide the 49ers with the necessary skills against some much improved Division I opposition. Also helping at the guard positions will be returning sophomore Connie Daniel (6.5; 1.6). Daniel, the leading scorer among the returnees, was a steady performer in every game as a freshman. She should provide ample back-up to both guard positions. The forward spots will be up for grabs among four players. Senior re- turnees Diane Stepp and Lee Doster, plus incoming transfers LaVon Jones and Sylvia Akers should give Payne a good variety of talent and playing styles from which to determine start- ers. Stepp, who sat out most of last season with a knee injury, will be relied on to help out at the small forward spot but may be asked to fill in at guard if it becomes necessary. Doster (5.1; 5.9), a regular last year, will give UNCC an experience boost at the small forward position. The strong forward position should be dominated by Jones and Akers but they may also be asked to play small forward or center. Jones, a junior transfer from George Mason University (VA). will use her deliberate, physical playing style to give the team a boost against stronger opponnts. Akers. a ju- nior transfer from Alabama, should help at the power forward spot with her strong, instinctive rebounding talents. The center slot can also be played by one of many players but it looks as though senior Karen Shugart and junior transfer Margueritte Parker will be the top contenders for the position. Shu- gart (5.7; 5.1) was a starter on last year ' s Division II 49er squad. Sharing the responsibilities at the center spot will be 6-1 junior transfer Parker. This junior from Mount Olive Junior College has a strong inside game, along with good outside scoring range. If past experience is any indication, Payne should be able to make the 49er program competitive in her first year. As head coach at Alabama, it took Payne only one year to turn a 12- 16 team into a 21-12 team (including a big victory over Tennessee in the SEC Tournament), Not helping the transition is the tough schedule that the 49ers will face in their first year at the Division I level. The schedule includes such big names as perennial national powers N.C State and South Carolina; a much im- proved Duke team; and Lenoir-Rhyne, NCAIAW Division II state champions the past two years. The highlight of the schedule for UNCC has to be the sea- son-ending Sun Belt Conference Tour- nament, which the previously all men ' s sports league is sponsoring for the first time ever. That historic event, which will include seven of the eight member institutions (Jacksonville does not offer women ' s basketball) will take place at none other than Norfolk, Va., where ' former national Division I champion Old iDominion University will host the two- jday affair (March 11-12, 1983). Considering all of the changes, the coming season will be a trying time for Ann Payne — Women ' s Basketball Coach many aspects of the 49er women ' s basketball team. But, as Payne puts it, " I don ' t see a single game on our schedule that I ' m counting as a loss. ' Judging from that. Division I may be in for surprises from the UNCC women ' s basketball program. Taking the reins of the Lady 49ers in their first year of NCAA Division I com- petition is former University of Alabama coach Ann Payne. She replaces Judy Wilkins, the only coach the women ' s teams ever had, who had compiled a 93-69 record over her seven years as the 49ers mentor. Payne, who took over for Wilkins at the completion of the 1981-82 season, brings a wealth of experience to her new coaching positon. Most recently, Payne coached on the Division I level at Alabama during the 1980-81 season, when she turned a 12-16 Crimson Tide team into a 21- 12 winner in her first year. The highlights of that season for Payne ' s Tide includ- ed an upset of number one-seeded Tennessee in the Southeastern Confer- ence Tournament and an eventual second-place finish. " Our being able to get a high caliber coach such as Ann Payne is a further sign of the upgrading of our women ' s athletic program, " Walker said late last season. " The increasing job de- mands of our women ' s basketball pro- gram certainly will require more than divided attention, such as we ' ve had in the past. " Before taking the Alabama job Payne served a very successful three- year stint (1975-78) at Berry College, where she was a two-time top 20 na- tional finalist for coach of the year hon- ors on the Division II level of the AIAW. Under Payne ' s guidance, Berry won state and regional AIAW titles in 1978 and 1980 before twice advancing to the Division II national tournament. The small college finished third in the nation in 1978 and posted a 25-4 record and consistent national rankings in 1980 before getting upset in the national tournament. " I feel fortunate to have an oppor- tunity in a program like UNCC ' s, " Payne said. " I feel like we can recruit to UNCC locally and out-of-state be- cause of the reputation of the pro- gram. I ' m counting on my contacts and Judy ' s to pay off (in recruiting) right away. " " Our future status as a Division I member is solid right now. Our ultimate goal is to be competitive and success- ful on the Division I level. We ' re just trying to get quality athletes right now. And I ' m looking forward to being at UNCC. I think it ' s one of the great places to be in the state on the Division I level. " Payne ' s initial coaching experience came at all-female Tift College in For- syth, Georgia, where she took a two- year-old, non-scholarship basketball program from a 3-17 record in her first year (1975-76) to an 11-9 turnaroung in 1976-77. Tift became a winner under Payne despite competing against ma- jor college and university basketball programs. Coach Andy Landers at Georgia said, " If you want to make your pro- gram a national contender, Ann Payne is the one to do it. " And coach Pat Head at Tennessee said, " If I were leaving Tennessee, I would tell them to make Ann Payne my replacement. " Payne has also worked along side such greats as Digger Phelps, Wimp Sander- son of Alabama, and Eddie Bilik of Springfield College not to mention be- ing a high school clinician in Alabama, Georgia and Clemson, S.C. " Ann realizes the potential of our program but also realizes our limita- tions and will work within them. She is a class person and will create a very positive image for the University, " said Wilkins of the first year coach. Payne earned her Master ' s degree in Health and Physical Education at North Georgia College in 1977. Her un- dergraduate education came at West Georgia College, where she earned a B.S. degree in Elementary Education in 1972, and at Gainsville (Ga.) Junior College, where she re- ceived a two-year A.S. degree in Health and Physical Education in 1970. Payne graduated from Banks County High School in Homer Georgia in 1968.

Warming was hired in July prior to the season, which gave him no time to recruit for the ' 82 season; therefore, the team did not have much depth. However, the players made their new coach feel welcome, and gave him assurance that they were behind him 100%. Coach Warming said, " UNCC is a special and unique place. " Warming has been many places, but he says that he has never seen a Chancellor as supportive as Dr. E.K. Fretwell was this past season. Coach Warming talks with amazement as he says, " Every game, Fretwell was there on the bench, giving the players water and towels as they came off the field. " An- other important figure in helping Coach Warming was Mr. Rick Zubber, who was always there to help the team. He came early for every prac- sr ' L I 104 Si David Higgins passes off to a teammate.

The team could al- ways count on the " Zube " to be there behind them, even if it meant paying his own way to the game. Bob Warming talks about school spir- it. " When looking back over the pic- tures and films by the fans just being there, you could see how much better the team played. In the game against North Carolina, the 49ers led the whole game until the last 40 seconds. " Ap- proximately 4.000 showed up for the game which made the team play above and beyond their normal capa- bilities. Warming led the 49ers to several first-ever wins over Appalachian State, Old Dominion, and Georgia State, and a 1-1 come-from-behind, overtime tie at South Carolina for his first NCAA game. The 49ers won the third annual Longwood College Invitational in Farmville, VA. UNCC also earned the highest SBC seeding ever, second, in the ' 82 season-ending tourney. Addi- tionally, the 49ers were ranked ninth in the final ISAA South Region top ten poll, a first ever for UNCC soccer. UNCC ' s schedule was one of the toughest in the nation, facing eight teams they had never beaten before. The three top goal scorers, and the best goalkeeper in the school ' s history were all seniors. Pierre Imar, Toni Rossi, David Higgins, and Tureh Doh all led the 49er soccer team through their 11-6-3 season. They ended the season as one of the top ten teams. Among the recipients of awards this season were Toni Rossi and Pierre Imar, who were selected as members of the 1982 All-Conference team in the Sun Belt Conference. Coach Warming was named Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year. Coach Warming remarked on his award. " I ' m really honored. But a coach can never receive such an hon- or without players who are willing to work hard for success. " Coach Warm- ing is making a tremendous effort to make the program work, and is very enthusiastic and excited in his work. Looking toward the ' 83 season, the 49er soccer team will again face one of the toughest schedules in the na- tion. The fans should be looking for many new faces.

A forfeit last May by VCU (because of an ineligible player in an April 18 game) gave UNCC the victory it needed to finish second in the Northern Division of the SBC and earn a spot in the league tournament. UNCC then had to play top Southern Division seed South Flor- ida (19-30) after the Bulls won a coin toss with highly regarded (and eventu- al tournament champion) South Ala- bama. UNCC would thus get to play the other squad in the tournament with a losing record in a first-round game. But the advantages stopped there as a 16-3 opening round loss to Robin Roberts ' USF team in Friday ' s opening game ended UNCC ' s streak of for- tune. The bulls ripped four UNCC pitch- ers for 16 hits and 16 runs (a 1981 SBC Tournament high) in posting the most lopsided victory of the tournament. With that loss, UNCC was matched in a Saturday loser ' s bracket game against Alabama in Birmingham, an 8-7, 14-in- ning loser to South Alabama in the first- round matchup. UAB had easily defeated the 49ers (by scores of 7-0, 7-1, 12-3, 4-1) in four earlier meetings last season and, after UNCC ' s 13-run loss to USF, it was obvi- ous that the 49ers were going to have to conquer high odds in order to stay alive. But that ' s just what UNCC did. The 49ers came out on top in a 4-2 upset after a 10-inning battle with Har- ry " the Hat " Walker ' s Blazers. It marked the first SBC tournament victory by a UNCC team in the three-year history of the program. The primary reason for the impres- sive triumph was a brilliant pitching performance by senior Eddie Thomp- son (Charlotte, N.C.). The 6-3, 200- pound righthander was stingy in scat- tering only eight singles in the 49ers ' longest individual pitching perfor- mance, a school record 9-13 innings. Thompson, in defeating the Blazers, raised his win total to a team-high six and lowered his staff-leaaing ERA to 2.96 by far the best earned run aver- age by any UNCC starter in history. Berto Concepcion (2-1,4.72) earned his fifth save of the season (another school record) when he induced a ground ball doubleplay to end the game. In the nightcap, South Alabama (a 6-3 loser to USF in the winner ' s bracket) used 8 walks and 10 hits to eliminate the 49ers by a 12-7 score and give UNCC a 22-32 record on the season. There were many bright spots in UNCC ' s third year of baseball competi- tion, despite the team ' s third straight losing season. The 49ers ' offense was at its strongest ever. The potent of- fense produced a .270 team batting average and almost five runs a game. The booming bats were led by juniors Randy Duncan (a team leading .353 batting average and tops on the club in runs scored — 39; hits — 60, and triples — 10 — all UNCC records) and Carlos Strickland (.209, leaaing the team in doubles — 11); senior right fielder Jack Sink (.335); and State Col- lege, Pa. sophomores Doug Wagner (.282) and Mike Weakland (273). Freshman Dave Reynolds ended the season at .270 to lead all UNCC rook- ies. However, besides pitchers Thomp- son, Concepcion, Greg Carroll (3-4, 4.54) and Chris Shaner (4-5, 5.25), the pitching corps was very thin and in- consistent, as recruiting efforts are be- ing centered on pitching and, if UNCC is to reach its first winning season, im- provements in that area will be a must, by Mark Colone Sports Information Office TOP PHOTO — Randy Duncan was among the nation ' s leaders in triples in 1981. 1 10 BASEBALL f s U 1981 Results (Overall: 22-32, Home: 14-18, Away: 8-14) DATE OPPONENT SCORE Mar . 9 ©Baptist L 2-3 Mar . 9 @ Baptist W 6-1 Mar . 10 (g Baptist L 3-12 Mar . 11 Elon L 3-8 Mar . 11 Elon L 2-4 Mar . 13 Va.

He has previously coached at Appalachian State, and also at the University Of Tennessee at Knoxville. Robinson feels that this year will again be one of trying to build a strong team out of a very young team. He also feels that the schedule this season will be double the excitement of previous ones. Fifty-four games were scheduled, and 42 of these were in Division 1 . This is the toughest schedule that the UNCC baseball team has faced, but Coach Robinson stated, " You can ' t beat good teams unless you play them. " This season the baseball team played on campus at the new baseball field, built during the summer. They hope the field will help increase the attendance to the games, and build support for future baseball teams. The 1982 baseball team consists of: Front row — Tony Koger, Kevin Colier, Randy Duncan, Brett Polk (Manager), Bobby Mizell, Chris Shaner, Bob Flateau. Row 2 — Eric Barrett, Kevin Ayers, Ronnie Rideout, Chuck McGee, Mike Weakland, Doug Wagner, Roger Carey, James Dickerson. Row 3 — Carlos Strickland, Mark Dunn, Coach Jeff Vuksan, Head Coach Gary Robinson, Coach Steve Pope, Eric Miller, Kevin Pittman, Gary Bemmes (Trainer).

Last year was also a recov- ery year for our Lady Fielders because the previous year was the first time that the softball team had played on the Division I level. Coach Kay Johnson comments on the transition: " We wer- en ' t exclusively scheduled on the Divi- sion I level, but better-much so. We had hoped to go to the state cham- pionships, but we never expected to go to the nationals. I guess our work payed off. " Last year, the team had its share of stars, such as Rita Barret, who was changed from infield to outfield, Jack- ie Johnson, who kept the team to- gether with her leadership and encour- agement, and Stella Johnson, who helped the team tremendously with her strong hitting. These girls, as well as the other members of the team, all worked together to achieve an im- pressive win over UNC-Chapel Hill. This win marked the first time that any ath- letic team from UNCC had defeated UNC-Chapel Hill in any sport. " We were ecstatic over our victory over UNC-Chapel Hill, but it shows that hard practice will pay off. A lot of the time I would have them catching ground ball after ground ball, over and over again. I would do this only to help them gain the confidence in them- selves that I had had for them, " said Coach Johnson. This year softball may possibly go to fast pitching. Coach Johnson feels that this may hurt her recruits, since high school softball is slow-pitched. " Most of the players will have a hard time, since the fast pitch will make it almost like baseball, but the decision won ' t be made until January, " Beverly Crump • OFTBALL by Anthony Cooper " outstanding team " Missy Speas Rita Barrett Jackie Johnson a m ' ll 4 - J, , V 1 j l mi . wfifo SH M Hilda Starnes Julie Henry Kim Holmes SOFTBALL 115 1 16 MENS TENNIS Tennis is Their Racquet The 1982 men ' s tennis team consists of Front row — Rese Farrish, Peter Vlassis.

This season, second- year coach David Hall can find no bet- ter word in describing his harriers up- coming season. " We ' ve got three good people back from last year, along with some outstanding freshmen, " said Hall. " Our guys are really excited about this sea- son, especially the Sun Belt. We ' re go- ing to be more competitive this year, and if we can stay healthy, we ' ll sur- prise some teams late in the season. " Last Season ' s third-place finish at the Sun Belt Conference Championships was the highest ever for the 49ers in the program ' s five-year existence. That finish might be hard to duplicate this season as the Sun Belt has added national powerhouse Western Ken- tucky, along with Old Dominion. Hall feels that Western will be the team to beat in Tampa along with the tradi- tional favorites South Florida and South Alabama. Seniors Jeff Taylor (Lenoir, NC) and Mark Stultz (Mooresville, NC) along with sophomore Robert Moss (Char- lotte, NC), all return for Hall. Taylor, in his second season at UNCC after trans- ferring from Brevard Junior College, placed second for UNCC twice last year and has looked strong in pre-sea- son workouts. He is expected to be among UNCC ' s top three harriers throughout the year. Stultz, like Taylor, finished second for the 49ers twice last season and never placed lower than fourth in only his first year of running cross country on the collegiate level. Both he and Moss are expected to contribute more to the teams as the season progresses. Charlottean Gene Lockabill ' s return will strengthen the middle of the 49ers ' lineup after redshirting last season with a severe ankle sprain. Newcomers may be the main rea- son th at Coach Hall is optimistic about the upcoming season. Freshman David Petersen (Raleigh, NC) has led the 49ers in pre-season and will probably run in the number one and two spots consistently this year. Pushing Petersen at the top spots will be freshmen Jeff Turbyfill (Charlotte) and Kurt Barkley (Taylorsville, NC), along with sopho- more transfer Steve McCachren (Mt. Airy, NC). " It means a lot to our program to have these freshmen run for us, " said Hall. " Now we really have a strong base to build on for the next few years. " Again this year Hall plans to have the members of the cross country team compete in track meets on a club ba- sis. " Running the track meets really helped our guys last year, " said Hall. " They were able to train together in the off-season and prepare them- selves for any road races they might enter in the summer. It ' s hard not hav- ing a track program at UNCC, but we ' re headed in the right direction by entering these meets. " The 1982 schedule includes the 1 1th annual Pembroke State Invitational, the European Cross Country Cham- pionships at Davidson, UNCC ' s own In- vitational and the Sun Belt Conference Championships in Tampa, Florida. The members of the 1982 Cross Country team are: Front row — Gene Lockabill, Kurt Barkley, Steve McCach- ren, Robert Moss. Row 2 — David Pe- tersen, Jeff Turbyfill, Mark Stultz, Clint Maney.

This year was the first time UNCC ' s volleyball team, under the direction of Kay Johnson, had moved from the Divi- sion 2 level to the more prestigious and challenging Division 1 level. This year our Lady Spikers had to contend with strong teams like North Carolina State, Clemson, UNC-Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest. Coach Johnson expressed her views on the Division change. " This year wasn ' t as successful as last year because of harder teams, al- though we did lose one of our best hitters, Rita Barret. " With outstanding players like Terri Tyler. Anita Stanley, and Terri Williams, Johnson feels optimistic about her coaching duties. " I have many skilled athletes, but this was a difficult year because of the move to Division 1, and we weren ' t used to losing as many games as we did. At times, it ' s hard to motivate the players to work harder against stron- ger opponents. It can be difficult at times. " Being in Division 1 does have its ad- vantages. The team was able to play opponents it probably would not have played, otherwise. They were also able to travel more extensively and be exposed to a wider range of events Although they did lose several games, Coach Johnson feels that, in the long- run, the exposure was good, and in the future, the team will be much stronger. Johnson remarked, " Although we ' re losing Anita Stanley and Terri Williams (who has used up her 4 years), I feel the team will be strong because of good recruits. I ' m very interested in high caliber players who will work with the returning players to make a very strong team.

V V Swimmers Need Publicity What are these students doing in the UNCC pool? The answer is (sometimes) the backstroke! That ' s right! UNCC now has a swim team, under the supervision of Terry Warner. But Coach Warner isn ' t as worried about his team ' s backstroke as much as its lack of publicity. Public support is an essential factor in building a successful swimming pro- gram and creating a well-rounded team. The new coach has found the road to success occasion- ally blocked by small obstacles such as limited practicing time because of Physical Education classes. Training a be- ginning team under these conditions obviously creates some problems, but Coach Warner feels that if the team members reach their potential and perform at their very best, UNCC will have a swim team the school will be glad to support. by Hank Foreman and Anthony Cooper Resting after practice 124 SWIMMING new sport at UNCC SWIMMING 125 126 PEP BAND ■ Sk -fci-- . - J% 1 Pep Band — UNCC ' s Hardworking Spirit Builders The members of the Pep Band are: Flutes — Anna Lane.

Students often find their work in student government a useful background for later public service. The history of student govern- ment is as old as the institution itself. The University encourages student participation in its affairs and has stu- dent representatives on many of the faculty and administrative commit- tees. The leaders of student govern- ment are committed to representing the student body and to developing students ' awareness of the many fac- ets of life at their University. All students who are regularly enrolled at UNCC. whether on a part — or full-time basis. are entitled to participate in student government. At UNCC. Student Body Govern- ment comprises The Executive Branch, made up of the president, his her cabinet, various appointees such as the attorney gen- eral and student legal counsel as well as a number of committees appointed by the president. The Student Legislature, composed of the chairman, the four class presi- dents, the residence hall presidents, commuter student representatives, re- presentatives chosen by the respec- tive students majoring in the several academic colleges of the University, and graduate student representa- tives. The chairman of the Student Legislature conducts all meetings and serves as liaison between the Legisla- ture and the president ' s office. The student body treasurer reports to the Student Legislature. The Student Juciciary, composed of the 12 justices of the Student Court, attorney general, and the student le- gal counsel. These bodies were estab- lished for the purpose of judging viola- tions of the rules and regulations of the University, the student Constitution, and the various student statutes, and for administering the Honor Code STUDENT BODY GOVERNMENT 137 The 49er Times JEFF TAYLOR, Editor-in-chief.

Other goals nclude gathering all of the pre-law in- formation available on campus and Dlacing it in one location. Presently in- formation is disbursed throughout nany offices across campus. The group is also attempting to form a sin- gle set of guidelines or a single plan for advisors of pre-law students to follow. The Pre-Law Society has been well received in both the school and the community. The local Bar Association is working closely with them and has formed lawyer visitation groups of prominent area lawyers who advise and support the group. Members of the organization also form small study groups each week and prepare for the L.S.AT. The Pre-Law Society has recently elected a new executive board and applied for a full charter at UNCC. The members of the Pre-Law Society are: Front row — Judy Patty McMa- hon, Debbie Porter, Anna Cheek, Rob- ert Newkirk, Tina Williams, Dr. Dennis Dorin. Row 2 — Clark Harbold. Todd Paris, Conrad Paysour, Dr. Ed Perzel, Phillip Gregory, Dr. Richard Toenjes. PRE-LAW SOCIETY 145 National Student Exchange Students returning from exchange reflect an increased feeling of inde- pendence, self-reliance and self-confi- dence, and a better appreciation of home region, family and campus. A major impact of the exchange year has been an increased awareness of, and consequent appreciation for, the vast differences in ideas and value sys- tems that result from the geographic location or ethnic or racial dominance in a given area. Students begin to un- derstand, often for the first time, that from varied academic and geograph- ic settings come vastly different learn- ing-styles, life-styles, and values. The National Student Exchange of- fers a new kind of educational oppor- tunity for undergraduate students based on their needs for self-explora- tion and further examination of both liberal and professional educational objectives, the educational exper- ience should embrace academic, as well as social and cultural experiences. The National Student Exchange allows a student to broaden his her perspec- tives within the realm of these objec- tives. One exchange student observed that " ... a person who exchanges to another university will be surprised and pleased by the amount of learning that takes place outside the class- room. " According to another student, the exchange program was the single most rewarding experience of her col- lege career. Another student called the NSE a mind-stretcher in terms of both personal experience and aca- demic variety. He called the National Student Exchange " ... an opportuni- ty to refresh your whole life in a new environment, and see wonders about yourself and others. It ' s what life should be — a continuum of new and fresh learnings, deepening appreciations and widening horizons. " The National Student Exchange pro- gram this year consists of: Front row — Carrie Grouse, Kathy Humphrey, Terry Sees. Row 2 — Carlene Ricca. Roger Kuhn, Suzzanne Benson. Row 3 — Jim Whetzel, Chris Holmes, Jean Shanklin, Jane Camara, Nancy Green, Sue Spencer, Evan Rinquist. The National Student Exchange is a cooperative program which provides an opportunity for an institution to ca- pitalize on areas of academic special- ization and strength, while, at the same time, complementing and sup- plementing its programmatic offerings with areas of academic strength and diversity at a number of colleges and universities throughout the United States. In this way, an institution is able to expand the scope and variety of educational experiences available to its students at minimal cost to either the student or the institution. The Na- tional Student Exchange is a product of mutual planning and interest in pro- viding the student with new academic and personal experiences through a simplified admissions process, assur- ance of credit transferability, and mini- mal additional cost to the student. Since its first year of exchange in 1968, over 9600 students have utilized this unique opportunity for a variety of reasons including exploration of new geographic settings, academic diver- sification, cultural awareness and search for self-identity. The desire to experience the diversity of education- al settings, offerings and philosophies prompts many students to utilize this option for sophomore or junior year study. Other students participate in the Exchange with the hope of learn- ing more about their capabilities and limitations, and increasing an aware- ness of self and potential to grow and mature both academically and social- ly. 146 NATIONAL STUDENT EXCHANGE Army ROTC UNCC has been fortunate enough to have a fairly new organization take root here at our university — Army ROTC The ROTC is in its third year and is working hard to meet its stressed goals promoting a good leadership program, training cadets to be lead- ers, and commissioning quality Jr. Offi- cers. Among the activities that the group participates in are the posting of colors at all home games (and other needed occasions), intramural sports, Scab- bard and Blade, and most important, hard, vigorous training. When asked what made the group special, three adjectives popped up: tightly-knitted, exciting, and educa- tional With a mixture of these qualities, how can you lose?

CIRCLE K 149 VASO. the Visual Arts Students Or- ganization, was first chartered in the summer of 1982 by the Executive Committee. The group was designed to share common interests between art students and the rest of the UNCC population. The organization also pro- motes the art program and UNCC in general, off-campus. This year VASO held several shows of student work, participated in the Ac- tivities Fair for Residence Hall Represen- tatives, and partook in the Homecom- VASO ing parade. At the present time the members are working to renovate the student gallery and setting up art demonstrations. When asked what made them spe- cial, the group came up with some sincere but highly humorous reasons. To begin with, they have no money whatsoever, nor do they sport Greek letters. Believe it or not they like art, and this keeps them going, for they get very little support or interest from the campus. A VASO member said. " We don ' t get mad about these things. We all dress funny, and we care deeply for little animals. Save the whales. God bless our president! " The VASO members are: Front row — Ann Carter, Nan Fischer. Row 2 — Leah Blackburn, John Hartley, Thorn Heyer, Lilla, Joy Moser, Pat ti McLaugh- lin, Ethel Gordon.

EEX promotes self-expansion and closeness within the fraternity, as well as athletics outside the fraternity. This year the fraternity was involved in Homecoming, a jog-a-thon, the Delta Zeta Walk-a-Thon, Family Day ana the South Campus Extravaganza. The Fraternity offers the chance to " get in on the ground level " of a fra- ternity in the making, and the gro up has future plans of joining a national fraternity.

The answer to that question is somewhat uncertain The Turtle Club is a non-chartered, non-profit, non-committal, and above all, a nonchalant organization They have no specific activities, no dues are paid, and no meetings are held Ac- cording to one member, Wmham Purs- ley, " We ' re just a good group of hell- raising friends, " The group is strictly social and has no other goal than to have a good time No commitments are made to the group, nor does the group collectively commit itself to a cause. The Turtle Club is not an activist organization, they perform no services, and they are not a " brotherhood " or a " family " . They are simply a collection of friends who have fun together. TURTLE CLUB 155 Chi Omega Chi Omega is a group of harmonious friends, devoted to wise purposes that contribute to individual development as well as to the community.

Also the group wanted to pro- mote interaction between students, iaculty and of course administration. Two of the programs that the OAK members work with are the President ' s Dinner and Student Association ' s Awareness Day. OAK was the first college society of a national scope to reward students for meritorious leadership and service in extra-curricular activities and to en- courage the development of general campus citizenship.

These youthful students dem- onstrated a vital concern for social welfare, academic excellence, and cultural enrichment, and de-empha- sized the social side of sorority life. Their ideals of scholarship and service have withstood the test of time; and today Delta Sigma Theta is a public service sorority, dedicated to a program of sharing membership skills and organiza- tional services in the public interest. In 1930, Delta Sigma Theta was incorpo- rated as a national organization. The record of incorporation is filed at the Congressional Library in Washington, D.C. Today, there are 100,000 mem- bers, and almost 700 chapters in 42 states, and in the republics of Haiti, Li- beria, the Virgin Islands, the Caribbe- an, and West Germany.

In following with the Sig- j-ma Nu tradition, their principles pro- mote the virtues of love, truth, and honor. This Greek organization has condemned hazing since its origin over 100 years ago. Sigma Nu tries to participate in most intramural sports, they ' ve contributed to the United Way this year through the Interfraternity Council, they ' ve competed in several Homecoming events, and they are planning a social for Sigma Nu alumni in the Charlotte area this semester to increase their ex- posure to local alumni and to UNCC as well. The fraternity also recognizes the benefits of being small in number. Two of those reasons are the closeness that can be attained and the leadership possibilities for members. The very na- ture of Sigma Nu ' s ideals are special since adherence to them provides the kind of discipline and values to make any man recognize the importance of honor in school and later life.

Witherspoon about Bonnie Cone and her involvement with the University and the community. He told how she supports the arts; the opera and symphony, and how she works closely with her church on many things. He mentioned her involvement with not only UNCC. but also Coker College, Johnson C. Smith, and Duke University. We discussed Miss Cone ' s accomplishments and involvement over ice cream at the New York Deli. As the con- versation continued, we be- gan to talk of the personal side of Bonnie Cone, and before long. Dr. Witherspoon was de- scribing her house to me. It sounded very interesting and I said I ' d like to see it. Ten min- utes later we pulled into the drive of Bonnie Cone ' s home. Her yard was filled with rho- dodendrons and wild ferns. Many plants were still in bloom or just blooming. Adorning the yard were many bird houses and feeders, but the land- scape still held a very natural countenance. It was picture perfect. As we strolled around the house admiring its unigue ar- chitectural form and beauty. Miss Cone herself arrived at the residence. She was pleased to see Dr. Witherspoon, a long- standing friend. He explained that we had only come to view the house, but did not tell her that I was writing a story on her. She immediately invited us in for the grand tour of her home. Miss Cone apologized say- ing, " My maid didn ' t come in today. I don ' t know why. " But everything was certainly in or- der. We went through the kitchen and by the counter lined with jars and cups that were rooting plants of every kind. We then entered the din- ing room which was directly adjoined by the living room. One entire wall was glass with two glass doors opening onto a large deck overlooking her beautiful lawn. The rooms were filled with many art pieces which she took pride in show- ing off. The baby grand piano was surrounded by many trees and plants. Directing our at- tention to one tree in particu- lar, she said, " I had another one like that, but I gave it to the school this morning. " The tour continued into the foyer and the library and con- summated in the master bed- room suite. Another glass wall was prominent in this room. It afforded a view of a small courtyard beautifully de- signed. " I do love it so. Last spring a wren made her home here and had five babies " , she said. Her home is very modern and contemporary, typical of her style. " She doesn ' t live in the past, always ready to move ahead ... to cross new thresholds " , said Dr. Wither- spoon. We went outside into the yard, and she showed us the new landscaping she was do- ing on the property that she didn ' t even own — a dead end street. Her rose garden was a final highlight of the tour. We thanked Miss Cone for her hospitality as we made our way to the car. Then she stopped by a lovely bush and picked a ginger lily for me. She explained, " Now this isn ' t in the perfect form, but it still has the aroma. " We thanked her again and were on our way. She is a delightful woman. Her Christmas cactus was al- ready in bloom, her miniature orange tree was still producing fruit, and flowers were growing everywhere. Everything she touches seems to grow — her house plants, her fruit trees, her roses, and especially her uni- versity. by Phil Lee ' • ' .

Chan- cellor A yearbook, like a college education, is something that should continue to mean more to you with the passage of years. I hope as you refer to this book in years to come you will be reminded of some of the best years of your life. Perhaps the book will cause you to remember to drop a note to an old friend, eve n a former professor. My fondest hope is that it will inspire you to return to the campus for a visit or to make a gift to the Alumni fund. Your University will mean more to you if you help it to become the great University that only its Alumni can make possible. You have had a unigue op- portunity to attend a University that is about the same age (as part of the UNC system) as many of you were when you entered college. The campus has been on this site in North- east Mecklenburg County about the same number of years many of you have been alive, 22. So you will be matur- ing along wi n your Alma Mat- er. My dream for both you and the University is that you will have a productive and re- warding future and that you will make a significant contri- bution to your community, state and nation, and perhaps to the world. Carry the flag for UNCC and be proud of the Mean Green. You are the best public rela- tions people, the best adver- tisers, and the best recruiters that we will ever have. Your yearbook is a book of memories, yes, but make it a book of dreams and a future book also. May it suggest to you what you can become and not just what you were during your college days. 178 CHANCELLOR CHANCELLOR 179 Mr. Leo Ells Vice Chancellor of Business Af- fairs 7 years at UNCC He enjoys fishing with his family and ocean clamming. What he likes most about UNCC: " It provides an op- portunity to be a major par- ticipant in guiding the influ- ence and growth of a uni- versity. " What he would change about UNCC: " The size of appropri- ations, the school is under- funded. There is less money per student than any other school in the state. " I ' ve never had a dull day at UNCC and I don ' t expect to have one in the next 10 years. " Dr. William Britt 10 years at UNCC He is Vice Chancellor of Devel- opment His hobbies include reading, tennis, working and hunting birds. What he feels is the best thing about UNCC: " It ' s vitality that comes from students and faculty. It ' s new, fresh, and vigorous. " What changes he would make at UNCC: " I wouldn ' t change anything specifical- ly. There are some things that need to be changed but that change is occur- ing. " 180 VICE CHANCELLORS! Dr. Robert Albright Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs 2 years at UNCC He is involved in coaching Little League soccer, baseball, and basketball, works with Cub Scouts, and enjoys reading. What he thinks is the best as- pect of UNCC: " The stu- dents. " He is impressed with the quality of students, aca- demics, and the sense of commitment present. " UNCC is the most interesting, most exciting, perhaps the most cost effective institu- tion in the North Carolina uni- versity system. It has unlimit- ed potential and in a short time will be a major force both in the system and in the entire South-eastern region of the country. " Dr. Douglas Vice Chancellor of Research and Public Services 14 years at UNCC He is the principal component of outreach at UNCC, he works with grants, contracts, and Charlotte urban region of public affairs. He enjoys travel, music, the guitar, running, and reading. What he likes most about UNCC: " The sense of enthu- siasm from students, faculty and staff that is a part of working at a new university. " What he would change about UNCC: " I ' d like to see more budget from the state of North Carolina and a closer re- lation with the city. I ' d also like to see commuters draw closer to the university and see more student involvement, from stu- dent government to athlet- ics. " Dr. James Werntz Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs 1 year at UNCC His main hobby is woodworking and cabinet making. What he feels is the best as- pect of UNCC: " The fact that it ' s in an urban area and yet not dominated by it. Also that it has all the advan- tages of a targe town; for example, ethnic groups, or- ganizations like Spirit Square and the orchestra. What he would change about UNCC: " I ' d like to see devel- oped a greater sense of an intellectual community. " VICE CHANCELLORS 181 mxs Si SI SI SI Dean Robert Snyder, College of Engineering.

THE DEANS 183 Ml BE 91 The process and quality of education at UNCC is con- stantly changing and improv- ing, with each department and office staying atop of new information and trends within their field. UNCC remains com- petitive with other schools in the state in Nursing, Account- ing, Engineering, Architecture and most of the undergrad- uate degree programs. Accounting students at UNCC rank among the top three schools in the slate — Duke, Wake Forest, and Chap- el Hill — in their scores on the CPA exam. Recently a UNCC graduate achieved the high- est score on the exam. In the Nursing program, students of- ten are in the highest percent- age of passing scores on the State Board Exam of State Schools. The Engineering and Archi- tecture schools are regarded as being top programs for their fields in the state system. One UNCC student recently re- ceived an award from the Royal Institute of British Archi- tects, being the only American to receive an award. Being one of the fastest go- ing universities in the state, UNCC strives to remain com- petitive in degrees and pro- grams. With a new high in en- rollment of 10,000 this year, UNCC must combine quality and quantity to provide the best possible education for its students. by Sonya Wiley A student nurse puts her education to use !

Baccalaureate degrees are offered in all de- partments and areas except American Studies. There are many graduate degrees avail- able also, depending on the courses. The College of Arts and Sci- ences stresses instruction for specialization in natural and social sciences and math- ematics. This college is headed by Dean Burson, who is also a professor in the Chemistry de- partment. Internship programs, which give the students oppor- tunities to study outside the classroom, are sponsored by the College of Arts and Sci- ences. The preprofessional programs offered prepare UNCC students to continue their studies for professional training at other institutions. Cooperative programs work with other schools of higher education to grant a UNCC degree. McEniry and Kennedy are the sites for most of the Sci- ences at UNCC. Science ma- jors not only spend much of their time in labs, they are also involved in other science-relat- ed activities. Biology and Chemistry are very popular majors for students entering careers in the medical profes- sion. The purpose of the Physics department is to prepare stu- dents for a variety of careers that require technical back- ground The Geography de- partment focuses on helping students develop skills in as- sessing and analyzing human interaction with the earth. A Geography student said, " To me, everything is related to Geography, and a little bit of Geography can be found in everything. " The basic pur- pose of the Earth Science de- partment is to prepare stu- dents for their future work by providing field trips to teach what occurs in natural settings The Mathematics depart- ment also trains students for the high technology jobs of the future. Included in this depart- ment is Computer Science, which is the fastest growing field in mathematics. These de- partments prepare students not only for careers in science, mathematics, and technol- ogy, but also for employment in business and industry. by Demise Sneed Another true artist is born Microscopic investigation of a glass slide? s 186 COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES Dr Jekyll and Mrs Hyde ore at it again Girl picks out books while silently complaining about prices COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 187 Ml Ml Included also in the College of Arts and Sciences are the departments falling under the category of the Humanities. The arts, languages, and social sciences are the main areas in this department. Afro-American and African Studies is a unqiue area, be- cause it is divided into four phases which have corre- sponding courses applicable to each year in the undergrad- uate curriculum. Community projects are involvement in the black community and are es- sential in all phases of this area. It is here that students utilize their skills in learning and com- munication. American Studies ' emphasis is intended to allow a student to focus strongly on various as- pects of the culture of the Unit- ed States while also gaining further variety of background from other facets of the Uni- versity ' s curriculum. Students gain insight into the interrela- tedness of various aspects of American life, past and pre- sent, through this concentra- tion. The Department of Creative Arts offers dance, music, the- atre, visual arts, or a combina- tion of these areas as a course of study. In the early years of the major, the student primarily develops understanding and skills, as well as self-motivation and self-discipline. Students interested in the study of crime, delinquency, and the criminal justice system can major in Criminal Justice and perhaps prepare for gra- duate study in the field. Gov- ernmental agencies and insti- tutions involved in the courts, corrections, and law enforce- ment are studied at the state, local, and federal levels. The Department of Political Sci- ence has been known to cor- relate with Criminal Justice and is often included with it. Politi- cal Science offers a Master of Urban Administration, with training in public administration and special emphasis in the management of local govern- ment systems. Programs in each of the sev- eral Foreign Languages of- fered are designed to give stu- dents competence in four skills — understanding, speaking, reading, and writing the given language in order to acquaint the student with the culture and civilization of the particular country. English is considered a separate department and al- lows for teacher certification. History, Philosophy, and Reli- gious Studies are popular de- partments within the Human- ities. Many students majoring in other degree areas often take classes in these departments to fulfill general degree re- quirements. Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology are studies that allow students the oppor- tunity to deepen and broaden their knowledge of their fellow man and themselves. The study of Anthropology is rel- evant for persons whose occu- pations and endeavors require an understanding of a variety of cultures, and Sociology is the study of man ' s social life. Within the Psychology depart- ment program, students are taught how to deal with their own problems and those of others in an effort to promote human welfare. The College of Arts and Sci- ences encompasses a wide range and variety of aca- demic areas and is the largest college at UNCC. r 138 Students goof off while painting sets for a stage production An artist shows off a finished project to an avid fan Sometimes it helps to cram a tew minutes before a test DEPARTMENT OF HUMANITIES 189 Within the college of Arts and Sciences are three de- partments which may be loosely classified as social and behavioral sciences. These are the Departments of Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology and Anthropology. The Department of Philos- ophy, headed by Professor Shumaker, hosts six professors and offers a total of twenty- five courses in this field. The Department of Psychol- ogy, which boasts a teaching staff of twenty-one professors, is headed by Professor Grims- ley. The department offers seventy different courses to its students in sequences de- signed to provide more expo- sure to certain areas of psy- chology such as Behavior Modification, Child Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Industrial Psychology, and Psychomet- rics. The department does have an honors program for majors and now offers a mas- ter ' s degree program The Department of Sociolo- gy and Anthropology, headed by Associate Professor Rent, in- corporates a teaching staff of twenty professors and pro- vides a total of seventy courses between the two pro- grams and the Social Work op- tion. Students within this de- partment may choose a major in Sociology, which focuses on the scientific study of man ' s so- cial life and provides a good background for those entering fields of social work, law, teaching, the ministry, journal- ism, etc Students who ma- jor in Anthropology will deal with man and his culture, which is divided into four subfields cultural anthropology, archeo- logy, physical anthropology, and linguistics. by Roger Nelms ; Rachel Bonney. an Anthropology professor, gives a student some individual instruction Dr John A Watts and his assistant experiment on a laboratory rat heart 190 . 100 DEPARTMENT OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES H»» The link between man and apes is a highly controversial topic among anthropologists Students who major in Anthropology will deal with man and his culture. which is divided into four subfields culturdl anthropology, archeology, physical anthropology and linguistics ■ DEPARTMENT OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES 191 loj The College of Business con- sists of three departments.

The department of Ac- counting has turned out many competitive accountants over the past years The depart- ment has ranked among the top three schools in the state for the last three years in hav- ing the highest percentage of students to pass the Certified Public Accounting Exam Ac- counting is one of the fastest growing fields today and also boasts one of the most promis- ing and encouraging job mar- kets in the economy. Gradu- ates of the Accounting pro- gram often find jobs in govern- mental, public, and tax ac- counting. The Economics program trains students to enter the areas of finance and manage- ment in the business world, and the professors within this de- partment stress the effects of private and public finance on the world ' s economy The entire Business depart- ment strives to educate the students in the specialized areas of management and economics, while also provid- ing a general knowledge and understanding of the daily functioning of the business world to aid graduates in ca- reer and personal life and de- cisions, by Sonya Wiley »vfr Students await a lecture in a Friday Building classroom 192 To gain an advantage in the job market, many Business Administration and Accounting majors choose to take Computer Science courses Dedicated students go to class rain or shine COLLEGE OF BUSINESS 193 The next time you cross a bridge and make it to the oth- er side, thank an engineer. The next time you put the key in your car ' s ignition and it starts, give the credit to an engineer. Almost everything in today ' s world had to go through some sort of engineering. From something as simple as design- ing a toothpick, in which the ends must be beveled to insure the safety of the user, to something as complicated as planning the McGuire Nuclear Plant. The College of Engineering trains the people who take on this incredible task. The de- partment ' s original goal was to meet the demand for well- rounded engineers. Up until this year, the degree offered through the department was called ESM (Engineering Sci- ence Mechanics and Materi- als). Graduates often ran into problems though, because employers weren ' t familiar with that degree. In order to meet the needs of the engineering students, the department is now in the process of changing to more traditional and recog- nizable degree titles. Dr. Rob- ert Synder, Dean of the Col- lege of Engineering, predicts the change will be completed within the next two years. by Tom Roff These two practice titration Many hours of studying are involved in earning a degree in Engineering i94 COLLEGE OF EM GINEERING This engineering student applies some of his knowledge The Engineering Department works on the energy of the future — solar power Roger Woods works on his senior project COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 195 Architecture . . . what is it? For many years there has been heated debate over the an- swer to this question and the controversy still continues. Some people say that archi- tecture is an art, others call it a science, and each architect seems to have his own person- al definition of the profession. Charles Hight, Dean of Archi- tecture, defined architecture as a way of life and a way of looking at life in order to better relate man to his environment. Dean Hight also explained ar- chitecture is a way of ordering the physical environment so that it adds visual beauty to the world while responding to the needs of man in a manner that takes maximum advan- tage of the natural setting. Architecture as a profession should experience much more growth in the near future, and the architect will have to play a more important role in lead- ing society to a new level of awareness of the relationship of man and his environment. Dean Hight explained that a new curriculum would be needed to prepare students for careers in architecture; a curriculum that should empha- size a variety of viewpoints, and which also teaches the basics, such as technical skills. With this large scale change in the profession Dean Hight ex- pressed that the College of Ar- chitecture at UNCC will also have to grow to meet the changing requirements for the education of tomorrow ' s archi- tects. by Hank Foreman 1 Is he serious ?

COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE 197 Ml Ml The primary purpose of the College of Human Develop- ment and Learning is to pro- vide learning and human de- velopment programs in a car- ing and supportive atmo- sphere to better utilize human and physical resources. This in- cludes taking the helping rela- tionship seriously, as well as dis- covering and participating in new ideas of helping; giving attention to others and to agencies who need the help of others; and designing quali- tative academic and experi- mental programming to assist in the knowledge and skills for persons who wish to succeed in becoming effective helpers and human development and learning specialists. Experimental learning is ba- sic to the development of competencies needed to ob- tain a BA in HDL. Experimental learning provides an opportu- nity to use actual experiences for the student to pursue as a motivating force for dee- pened study. North Carolina currently pro- vides for three types of teach- er certification based upon the completion of approved bachelor degree programs judged on the depth of one ' s academic preparation and the content and experiences of the professional component of preparation. These certifi- cates are Early Childhood (Kin- dergarten through Third Grade), Intermediate (grades four through nine) and Secon- dary (grades seven through twelve). Many UNCC students choose to do their student teaching at the various schools in the Charlotte area. The Learning Resources Center provides all students laboratory experiences in teaching learning resources. The latest in audio-visual equipment and teaching me- dia is available. A Curriculum Materials Labo- ratory and Media Center is lo- cated in the College of Human Development and Learning and is accessible to faculty, students, and other profession- als in the field. In this College, there is a Counseling and Guidance pro- gram which prepares counsel- ors for a variety of work set- tings. Also, there is the Adminis- tration Supervision Program which prepares individuals for positions in school administra- tion and curriculum instructions. Yet, another field is Special Education. This program deals with mental handicaps, learn- ing disabilities, emotional handicaps, and gifted and tal- ented students. Included in the College of HDL is the Department of Health and Physical Education. Completion of undergraduate degree in HDL requires the de- velopment of competencies in one or more helping special- ties. These are the sports and movement education helping specialties. The sports helping specialty is designed primarily to meet the needs of the non- physical education major who wishes to coach. The move- ment education helping spe- cialty provides an opportunity for individuals to develop the understandings, knowledge and skills needed for helping people with play and perfor- mance forms of movement. by Denise Sneed § N » V Anne Hatley explains a theory for students in Math 120 198 COLLEGE OF HDL Roy Fielding instructs a swimming class in the Mineshaft pool COLLEGE OF HDL 199 The College of Nursing de- rives its purpose from the pur- pose of UNCC, and affirms its intention to teach nursing, to participate in the search for truth, and to serve those who are concerned about the health care of the citizens of North Carolina, the nation, and the world. The College of Nurs- ing prepares a nurse who is a generalist capable of provid- ing nursing care for members of families in various settings, functioning as a change agent and a leader in the promotion of health, and advancing through further education at the graduate level. The students in the College of Nursing believe that nursing is an applied science, and that it is a unique service which is extended on the basis of need rather than privilege. The goal of nursing is to promote the highest possible level of well- ness. This goal is founded upon the assumption that human life has intrinsic worth both as an individual and as a collective experience. The philosophy behind the College of Nursing is viewed as a continuum throughout which the individual interacts with and adapts to continuous changes in the internal and ex- ternal environments. The facul- ty bejieves that health repre- sents a state of integrated functioning where the individ- ual strives to maximize one ' s unique capabilities and re- sources. The university environ- ment provid es opportunity for each student to develop greater self-knowledge, a fuller understanding of the na- ture of humanity and compe- tencies relevant to individual goals. Even so. many nursing students get hands-on training at the various hospitals in the Charlotte area. Nursing stu- dents also are required gener- al education courses so that there is a continual inter- change of theory and prac- tice. Unknown to many nursing students is the opportunity to study abroad. Credit can be obtained from the Nightingale School of Nursing in London, England. While in London the student has the opportunity to study the Health Care system of Great Britain as well as the educational process for nurses in England. by Denise Sneed Pam Richardson practices pumping on Patty Viar. 4 200 COLLEGE OF NURSINGl These two are just being silly COLLEGE OF NURSING 201 i Si Ml s In addition to being an ex- cellent undergraduate school, UNCC offers quite a variety of master ' s programs. There are numerous master ' s degrees of- fered at UNCC. The Master of Business Ad- ministration (MBA) at UNCC is every bit as tough as the un- dergraduate program. After completing the undergrad- uate program, which includes the principles of accounting, economics, statistics, introduc- tory calculus and computer science, the student begins a course of study of 39 hours at the graduate level. The pro- gram is set up to accomodate part-time students. They can finish in three years, and full- time students can complete the program in two years. The purpose of the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is to prepare nursing practioners to be leaders, expert teachers, and skillful clinicians in the methods of health care, deliv- ery, and quality medical aid. Emphasis is placed in a clinicial area and preparation for teaching and administration. A minimum of 42 hours of gra- duate credit is required, with at least 36 hours of nursing courses. The program can be completed through part-time study or three semesters and one summer session. For a master ' s degree in En- gineering, a student must complete 30 semester hours of approved graduate course work. The primary purpose of the Master of Science in Engi- neering (MSE) program is to provide an opportunity for gra- duate level engineering edu- cation to improve on the job skills and to provide a degree program for career develop- ment A Master ' s of Human Devel- opment and Learning requires the completion of a minumum of 36 hours in five specifically designated health education courses and three designated human development and learning courses. The health programm at UNCC is de- signed to enhance the ability of health educators to provide information and plans which enable students to achieve optimal health. The master ' s program of Ur- ban Administration offers a professional education to peo- ple who are looking for a ca- reer in public administration with a concentration in local government management. There are three stages in this master ' s curriculum, core stud- ies, advanced studies, and di- rected studies. Students seek- ing a master ' s degree in urban administration can attend classes full or part-time and are expected to complete the program within two years. In the master ' s program of criminal justice, a total of 36 semester hours are required, including 12 hours of core classes. Graduates of this pro- gram will have professional preparation in law enforce- ment, correction, and criminal justice management. Other master ' s programs of- fered at UNCC include the Master of Arts degrees in Eng- lish, Geography, History, Psy- chology. Mathematics, Biol- ogy, and Chemistry offer Mas- ter of Science programs to the UNCC graduate student. by Lea Caldwell 20. Master of Science includes Mathematics.
