The 1983-84 Prospector, not by tradition but by impor- tance, is continuing the philosophy of theme. The significance of theme hinges on this time in our lives and in our world when the expression of what some- thing means or is has become such a very necessary and integral part of the human process. An increasingly popular component of this pro- cess, the university years, has come to mean a time of growth and self-centering for those participating in the college experience. It is for this reason that The Book is an explanation of an unusual, gridded. pat- terned, semi-responsible set of years; a type of re- membrance of the years that shape us into various models of persons that are suddenly thrust upon what may be called " the real world. " As with all " epics " we must begin at the beginning of the journey, our childhood. As children, we are confined to a small box of reactions and of thoughts. Our responsibilities and cares are so few and far be- tween and of such small scope as to merit no further description. But as we grow and begin to grasp con- cepts greater than ourselves, we realize that the hu- man process is a lot rougher than any thought that floated fleetingly in and out on our fast little neurons. So, of course, we do the only humane thing possible, forget it. We allow our minds and bodies to remain in a shallow, shaded box and sometimes allow the lid to close, thereby shutting off and out utter, and total reality. Then, usually to our overheated dismay, we are forced to come out of our shelters. For a large number of us, this time is usually during our college years. There is the stronger and admitted realization that we have to have some responsibilities and some stands to make. This " realization " most often occurs to us in the form of disagreeing with a thought of a Professor or. heaven forbid, a friend. But neverthe- less, we do realize this and are taken aback by the idea. So, alas we decide to make a few decisions, usually copping out with small ones but building into larger ones that will soon begin to shape us into the persons we are to become. This step in the process is the grid, the time when we have a horizontally designed, pattern of choices laid out for us: all there is to do is to follow the little squares. Well, at least we have unfolded the box and created a situation. Although there are those who refold the box and crawl back in, but, to avoid the temptation of journeying on another trek, we ' ll for- get those people and hope that their problem is picked up in a later edition. As we now begin movi ng on this grid we erase the lines as they are travelled and soon, or not so soon, another, and the last step in the human process we will discuss, step or phase is reached. After all the back-tracking of lines and re- } :i. ?;S y ■ ! » ! working of problems, we finally have cleared all the lines off of our grid. It is at that time that we realize our potential and begin soaring on, through and around our plane. The plane that is us; it is very strange that only after there is nothing there, every- thing is there. This is the ultimate end of the human process, as we know it. For beyond this plane there exists a space that totally relinquishes us from any definition of plane, grid, and or box. It is at this point that the definition of exactly what rea of the process we wish to present in the Prospec- tor is. As stated earlier we are to express the time when we are following a gridded, semi-responsible pattern. So this falls into the step of the college years, with its grid. This is our beginning point for our purposes, and naturally the only topic to touch on first is Student Life. What do students do, what defines their grid or grids. That was the first direction to embark upon in our search for your college experience. The follow- ing pages are filled with vignettes depicting what we hope you remember or feel are components of the grid. From there we followed the winding trail to the " real world. " It is there that the grid slowly began to disintegrate or reintegrate and the need for a respon- sible, planel person evolved. Because we, as you, Opposite Top: OUT!!

As you read and look at The 1 983-84 Prospector we hope you see and respect this notion of the human process and find that the information presented is relevant and helpful in the quest. For this is a quest that all must partake of at some point in time and it merits the thought and discussion of its travelers. With this thought we would like to end this literary representation of what you will feel and see and let you continue on the greatest journey you will ever make. by Hank Foreman V Opposite: Or.

HSUCCa !SI inanin« BELK TOWER As a central figure on campus, the Belk Tower provides a base for inter-personal relationships. Though the Tower is located where everyone passes by — peo- ple meet there to talk out their problems, catch up on the latest news or simply just sit and watch the people go by. The most popu- lar times to see friends or people that you would like to meet is be- tween classes, but with only ten minutes to talk, you have to make it quick. Cultural activity is very popu- lar at this spot also. There is a vast area to get in touch with the world and an everpresent audi- ence that sets the mood for cre- ativity. Religious, Political and other special interest groups choose this spot to convey their ideas to students in an informal manner. Their philosophy is that once a crowd forms, others will stop and listen to see what every- one else is looking and listening to. The Belk Tower adds to the mo- dernness of the campus. The Belk Tower can be spotted when enter- ing the campus from the highway and adds to the uniqueness of the skyline. When looking at the Tower we perceive it to reach to- ward the sky — which is a key to the continuing education and growth of the University. Without students ' desire to achieve and reach desired goals, UNCC would become stagnant. So keep meet- ing new friends and always look to the sky . . . by Sonya Wiley BOB fn-rrw n DWI The raising of the legal drinking age for beer or fortified wine to 19 years of age poses several changes for behavior on campus. The passage of the new DWI law will also limit the activities students attend off-campus due to the seriousness of getting caught while impaired. The DWI law came about after the previous DUI law was repealed. The DUI law consisted of three statutes: (1) Driving under the influence of narcotics or drugs. (2) Careless or reckless driving after drinking. (3) Driving under the influence of al- cohol and above 0.10. These statutes were repealed and combined under one statute making up the DWI law — Driving While Impaired. The new statute makes it unlawful for a person to: 1. drive or operate 2. any vehicle 3. on a highway, street or PVA (University Roads) 4. a. while under the influence of an impairing substance, or, b. with an alcohol concentration of 0.10 or more at any relevant time after driving. In order to prove the fourth element, the officer must prove (1) by showing the driver ' s physical or mental faculties are appreciably im- paired by an impairing substance or: (2) by showing the driver ' s alcohol concentration (AC) is 0.10 or more. Refusal to take any required test will result in an immediate revocation of his her driving privilege for at least ten days and an additional twelve- month revocaton by the Department of Motor Vehicles. If a person takes any test (blood test, breath test, etc.) and alcohol concentration is 0.10, the person will lose his license for ten davs. 18 DWI The DWI law has many hard to inter- pret elements and perhaps an easier way to communicate these elements that would be relevant to students is through a series of examples. Pete was stopped on October 10th. 1983 by Officer R. Jones. Officer Jones, unless a road block was used, must be justified by a reason- able and articulable suspicion to stop Pete. Pete was convicted on an impaired driving offense in 1980 which resulted in serious injury to another person. Pete faces a minimum of 14 days in jail and up to two years and a fine up to $2000.00. Mary is charged with DWI and her alcohol concentra- tion was over 0.20 and has no serious traffic offense in the last 5 years. Mary faces a minimum of 72 hours in jail, 72 hours of Community Service or 90 days non-operation or a combination of the three and a fine up to S500.00. Tom is cruising down Highway 49 and is seen by Officer Riley consuming a beer. Officer Riley apprehends Tom and stops him. Tom faces a fine, up to 2 years in jail, or both. Nancy. Henry, and Laurie are three passengers in Dave ' s car. The three are drinking rum daiquiris and are stopped by Officer Smith. Each passenger faces a fine, up to 2 years in jail, or both. Jimmy is on a prescription drug lawfully obtained and taken in prescribed amounts. While driving. Officer Reece notices Jimmy swerving down the road. Officer Reece determines that the drug caused impairment and charges Jimmy with DWI. Jerry, an 18 year old student, attempts to purchase a 6-pack of beer from 7-Eleven. Jerry faces a fine, up to 2 years in jail, or both. Sandy and Sal go out on a date. Sandy does not drink — Sal gets wasted. Officer Workman stops Sal for speeding and charges Sal for DWI and Sandy for accompanying Sal while he is under the influence of an impairing sub- stance. Sandy faces possible license revocation for up to a year, a fine of up to $100.00. an imprisonment for not more than 60 days or any combination thereof. by Sonya K. Wiley gnu Below: Oh No!

" On the UNCC campus, hassles bombard students nearly every day. Some of the more common hassles include: Washing Laundry You get out of the shower Wednesday morning to discover you wore your last clean pair of underwear the day before. You find it necessary to " make do " somehow until your classes are through for the day. then you rummage through your roommate ' s closet until you find at the very back of the top shelf what appears to be a small amount of laundry detergent Then comes the walk across campus to the Bookstore to trade in a five dollar bill for quarters and dimes- Finally, when all the required paraphernalia is assembled, you find the nearest laundry room — usually hot and always crowded After sitting (bored to death) beside your dirty clothes for 45 minutes, a washer becomes available and you get to begin the actual washing process- Of course, the minute your clothes get out of the washing machine, all the dryers break down- Always By this time disgusted and sleepy, you drag your wet wardrobe back to your residence and begin the gruesome and slow task of drying your jeans, shirts, under- wear, and socks with your hairdryer. Dropping a Class Okay, you just made a 29 on your first Chemistry test, so you decide to drop the class and try your luck again next semester. The lady in the registrars office rattles off a list of official signatures you ' ll need while handing you a DROP card. It sounds easy enough, so you proceed to your advisor ' s office for his valuable approval But. of course, he ' s not in at the moment, so you wait . . . and wait . - - and wait. Finally, the secretary says she thinks he ' s gone for the day [Why didn ' t she say that 20 minutes ago 7 ) After signing up for an appointment with your advisor, you leave, more than a little irritated, and determine to finish your task the following day Twenty-four hours later your trusty advisor signs your DROP card while giving you a disapproving glance over his horn-rimmed glasses. Upon leaving his office, you next approach the depart- ment teaching the course (for another signature). Things go relatively smooth there, so you then head for the registrar ' s office to finally turn the dumb thing in and complete the procedure But wouldn ' t you know it — the registrar ' s office closes at 5:00 and you just missed it by 3 minutes. With a look to the heavens and a few four-letter words, you realize it would ' ve been easier to keep the Chemistry class along with your big 29 average Maybe UNCC officials planned it that way!!???? Getting into Residence Halls After Hours You are walking out of your residence hall at 10:20 p.m. to say good-bye to a visiting friend You say to the security guard at the desk. " George. I left my ID in my room, but I ' ll be back in twenty minutes. " Well, you really hate short goodbyes and an hour later you walk back into the hall. Trustworthy George is eyeing you suspiciously as you approach the security desk He asks you for your I.D- and you remind him of your earlier conversation, then keep walking confidently- Well, George is in a bad mood, so he asks you for your ID. again (Like he really forgot your face in one hour.) Knowin g that he would persist until he could actually see your ID-, you call your roommate, who was asleep before you called, and ask her to bring your ID. downstairs to verify you are not a psychopathic killer on the loose. By Sheryl D. Waddell 21 Parties . . . What are they? There are room parties, house parties, suite par- ties, apartment parties and fraternity parties. Some involve a great deal of forethought and planning, while oth- ers just seem to happen. The best way to describe the campus parties, listed above, is to just talk about them one at a time. Here goes: The room party consists of from 10- 20 people. And is usually accented by some kind of drinking game or some- thing of this nature. A chief character- istic is the fact that there is virtually no planning whatsoever. The suite party is only a glorified room party. It, like its brother, is very rarely planned and usually begins with just a few friends visiting. This generates the whole suite into a some- times frantic get-together. Hereby named the suite party. The house party is set above the room and suite party mainly because they are a planned occasion. Very of- ten a theme lurks in the background and of course a sophisticated sound system is brought in. The three D ' s, Dancing Drinking Dying the next morning, are the key results of house parties. The apartment party, because of their occupants ' supposed sophistica- Top: Chi Phi Open House. Top Right: Private party. Middle: A food party, alright!! Far Right: Let ' s get down. 22 PARTIES tion, tend to be wonderful wine and cheese socials, dinner parties, balcony buffets or any combination of the above. But as you know or have guessed the results are the same, oh yes, the dreaded three D ' s. The fraternity party, well that ' s a whole other story. Instead of being the object of a small hosting group, this party has a large number of hosts. And as most parties are fun, these are if possible, considered " funner " than any of the above mentioned. To be out- done by any other campus, or off cam- pus party for that fact, the three D ' s show up in full style. So from this short overview of par- ties it can be seen that there is a style of party for everyone. And everyone enjoys some kind of party. by Tom Roff Private, room party. SBjeq , - ' 4 imtsntmiBMBtisexaatii UNCC has many established eating places on campus for stu- dents and visitors to dine. Appe- tizers, entrees and desserts make up the eating system of the Resi- dence Hall Cafeteria. For a little touch of something different — students can go to the Cone Cen- ter or The New York Deli (for the difference you may have to pay a ittle extra!) The apartment peo- ple learn the concept of survival of the fittest by trying (?) to cook for themselves. But what about those late night munchies? Those after-dinner hunger pains that PFM just did not satisfy? Thank Goodness for junk food!! A popular alternative for stu- dents is Dominos Pizza. They de- liver in less than thirty minutes and the pizza is well worth the wait. Bojangles, Wendy ' s, and Taco Bell are other favorites for the late night eaters. They are conveniently located and make a nice ride for a study break. All in all campus dining and Charlotte area restaurants are enough to keep the students from going hungry. by Sonya Wiley 25 CAMPUS RESIDENCE Phases I, II, and III comprise the apartments of UNC-Charlotte. All three phases consist primarily of four separate bedrooms, a kitchen, a bath area, and a family room. The apartments are basically set up as an off-campus facility — the students pay their own electric and telephone bills, and are also held respon- sible for upkeep of each apartment. Apartments offer a new lifestyle on newer college campuses in North Carolina. The older colleges al- low one choice of living facilities — the dorm. But at UNCC, several choices may be made: the high rise, apartments, or the Phase IV complexes. Lifestyles in the apartments appear to be more ver- satile than other lifestyles on campus. The high rise and Phase IV students have a slightly more rigid and structured life. For instance, these students have set times for meals, but in the apartments students fix their own meals at their convenience. Along with versatility , the apartment life also al- lows a certain amount of freedom — many students feel as if they are living on their own. This freedom enables students to gain a certain amount of respon- siblity such as having bills to pay, cleaning the apart- ment, etc. These responsibilities help to prepare up- perclassmen for life after college. The main intrigue in apartment life is privacy. Stu- dents are not thrown together in a small cubicle such as a dorm room. Here, students have the luxury of their own bedroom to which they can retreat. This entitles students to a more private life and also leans toward a better studying atmosphere. Overall, life in the apartments is more open and gives upperclassmen a new sense of freedom in life- style. by Cynthia Beane 26 Top Left: UNCC ' s newest on campus housing; Hawthorne Hall.

Center Right: A familiar sight to Phase II students. Lower Right: Socializing outside Phase IV A. Some of the bad things about dorm life is the closeness that comes with living with the same people semester after semester. You never have any time to spend alone because there are always good friends around to talk to or to tempt you with outside activities. And just when you think things have finally calmed down here comes one of those Rush or House parties, where everybody has fun. To top it all off you learn to be independent while learning to deal with other people and assume re- sponsibility. Some of the finer points are 14 people to a bath- room of which 10 use two showers to prepare for an 8:00 class. Everyone loves to get started at 5:00 in the morning for an 8:00 class anyway. Having two elevators for just 500 people helps cut down on waiting for a ride to avoid the ten flights of stairs. They take care of us with elevators and bath- room facilities, but they look after us further with insistence upon buying a meal plan. The delicious and nutritious PFM provides the food for all 1500 students. From day to day suspense fills the air with what we are eating but the Sweet Shoppe brings the suspense to reality — and makes us hold on to the hope of a special soon. Safety is a need everyone possesses. This need is executed through several ways. Fire drills at 2:00 in the morning to make sure that we could get up in the event that these cement structures were to catch on fire. The desk receptionist forever makes sure that the students are in the right places. If you happen to forget your ID — you can spend the night in the lobby until they leave the next morn- ing — a good safe night of sleep. People in the dorms are really nice and overall, dorm life is really great! We wouldn ' t live any- where else. by Rusty Washburn and Dakey Younts 27 COMMUTER LIFE Commuter life at UNCC is an extremely large part of the University: of the 10,000 plus student popula- tion approximately two thirds are commuters. Many of the commuters are residents of Charlotte and make it their daily routine to travel to and from Charlotte to school. But still a small number of stu- dents travel from surrounding areas to attend classes — this entails getting up at early hours and some- times staying late on campus. A large number of the Charlotte based commuters rely on the Charlotte Transit System to get to classes. Part of this system is the express bus; of which two are in use. These buses are better known as the Mean Green Shuttle Machines. But for those students who own their own transportation, UNCC has various parking lots to accommodate their needs — although at times a parking space can be harder to find than a June snow storm. UNCC has a large number of services available to commuter students as well as designated faciliti es for their needs. Cone University Center is equipped with lounges, gameroom, cafeteria, candy shoppe and the newly renovated Student Activities Center. Commuter life at UNCC differs greatly from that of the on-campus residents, but the activities and events arranged for students are designed to make the commuter an integral part of university life. This helps the student to gather a " complete " education and to help him grow in areas other than academics. 28 ' ™™ 1MBW wmilrnHlr WM!!J ' MMtg ■mm mm— in GRADUATION Who would have ever imag- ined in 1965 at the transition stage of Charlotte College to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte that it would eventual- ly graduate 1,797 students in the year 1983? Many changes have taken place on this campus since the 1965-66 year. The major changes of growth and develop- ment have led to an increase in the curriculum and degrees of- fered. The graduating class of ' 83 showed a slight decrease in the number of actual degrees award- ed from the previous year. The highest number of degrees awarded was in the College of Arts and Sciences with a total of five hundred ninety-eight. The College of Business Administra- tion graduated four hundred thir- ty-eight, with the College of Hu- man Development and Learning having three hundred fifty-one. The College of Engineering and the College of Nursing were close together with one hundred nine- ty-nine and one hundred fifty- five, respectively. The Masters degree program is rapidly growing here at UNCC. Human Development and Learn- ing awarded two hundred twen- ty-one this year. The Master of Business Administration degree was awarded to thirty-one indi- viduals and twenty-eight degrees were awarded as Master of Arts. Master of Science (entailing Biol- ogy, Chemistry, and Criminal Jus- tice) awarded four. Other Masters programs that are offered are in the areas of Science in Engineer- ing and Urban Administration. Directed Study is another related area in the Masters program. To- tal Masters Degrees awarded were three hundred nineteen. With the number of students at UNCC increasing at a rate of ap- proximately 2% each year and the continual upgrading and ad- dition to degrees offered in var- ious areas, the number of gradu- ating students should have a di- rect relationship with the number of graduating students in both undergraduate and graduate programs. The number of gradu- ates will not grow near the rate as undergraduate due to the major- ity of the graduate students going part time. by Sonya Wiley WEEKENDS Pc4D oQ PtU 07 Have you ever tried getting on the elevator in the dorms on Fri- day afternoons? Suitcases are crowding the space and everyone is ready for their trip home, veri- fying the traditonal saying, " UNCC — the suitcase school. " What about the students who are not fortunate(?) enough to go home? What goes on during the weekend at UNCC? Well — Friday afternoon in the cafeteria is dead, the atmosphere is filled with the smell of PFM and is not covered by the chitter- chatter of students everywhere. But when the sun goes down the action starts. Classes can be for- gotten (for the most part) for two days and it is time to break loose. The Regency is a popular well- budgeted meeting area for stu- dents. Crowds go for a good time and to get away from the campus for a little while. Eastland Mall is another place to waste a few hours; after all everyone needs to spend a little money for some- thing new every now and then, just to get out of the routine of the routine of not spending! This is action for a number of people but the real action begins around 9:00 or 10:00. House par- ties begin to get " rockin ' " and ev- eryone feels no pain. Fraternity parties provide places for interac- tion (?) between people and an- other destination away from campus. The safest difference be- tween partying off-campus and on is the walking vs. driving ob- struction. Many minds are dis- torted or vision may be blurred and there are normally not enough people solely enjoying the high of merely meeting peo- ple, leaving incapable people be- hind the wheel of a car. The daytime of the weekend days starts around noon for the people who take advantage of sleeping late or simply can not make it out of bed due to the lin- gering effects of the night before in their head. Saturday and Sun- days are relaxing days and the li- brary can be tolerated easier than during the week. Many projects and assignment ideas are generat- ed by a walk around the lake or just by the simplicity of the day. Time can be spent in the gym or on the different athletic fields without the guilt of neglecting study time for the classes. In es- sence, time can be spent on any- thing a person wants to do — in- stead of dedicated to the class- work. Various organizations plan weekend trips for students to get away from school grounds for a while. At the same time these ac- tivites provide interaction and experience. Life is an experience in itself — learning something about someone or even yourself each day. What better way to re- lax and enjoy the routine of cam- pus and classes than to look for- ward to the weekend — whether it be parties or sleep! by Sonya Wiley I k 32 V ' n ' INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL 34 TIME: 6:30 a.m. TIME: 8:00 a.m. All suddenly seems to be in place as the first display groups ar- rive with cars and trucks loaded with colorful and delicious display items. They are international people from around the world who happen to live in the Charotte area; they are UNCC stu- dents and members of the Charlotte in- ternational community. They busy themselves in preparing their displays — ropes, wires, tapes — all necessary items in creative display building. One can hear the chatter of many tongues and laughter from around the world. TIME: 10:00 a.m. The show is nearly ready to begin and to welcome early arri- vals — the brownie and girl scout troops soon can be seen in clusters here and there — tasting an international goody; getting their name written in Japanese or Chinese; asking questions about the var- ious items on display. TIME: 11:00 a.m. The ever-popular Gootman Band strikes up the familiar oom-pah-pah tune and one feels trans- ported to another part of the world. As mid-day approaches, our guest list broadens to include many families with children in tow. They begin to appear with painted faces clutching balloons re- ceived from the roving clowns. Now it is time for colorful sets of music and dance for a crowd that has thickened and diversified with all ages and races seemingly represented. Swirling skirts, rippling muscles, gyrating bodies, bang- ing drums; mellow flutes and rhythmic tunes from around the world appear on stage. Music to make you tap your feet, clap your hands and flow with the beat. At its conclusion, children scurry to the puppet show or another chance for face painting. Adults join in the folk dancing, watch the Chinese cooking demonstration hoping for a tiny morsel, or enjoy strolling among the various colorful displays. Throughout the afternoon additional sets of music and dance are performed on stage with a special dance featuring the Arthur Hall Dance Troupe. They present a tremendous performance of African dance replete with elaborate costume, beat, and body rhythm. As the conclud- ing performer — Jim Boyce Steele Drum Band — sets up. we take roll call and discover that over 60 nations of the world are represented here today Suddenly it is 5:15 and time to close out the show. Visitors drift off reluctant to return home. Festival participants are tired out but exhilarated from this op- portunity to share their culture with so many interested folks. TIME: 6:30 p.m. It is time now to move into the Cone Center, Lucas Room where the PFM staff is scurrying around to put the last minute touches on the annual international buffet. Guests with tickets soon begin to line the hall awaiting the 7:30 hour. The doors are opened and they enter an atmosphere replete with inter- national food varieties with gentle jazz in the background amidst multicolor banners and table decor. As they catch the final crumbs of their riccotta pie or Scotch oatmeal cake washed down with coffee or tea, the tem- po picks up. Arthur Hall Dance Troupe has returned for their final performance of the day. As the evening draws to a close, suddenly the audience finds itself joining in the dance. A good exercise after a sumptuous meal. TIME: 9:45 p.m. The day is drawing to a close. The last guests are leaving; the still flickering candles are blown out; tired but satisfied performers enjoy an after dance repast. by Marian Beane, Coordinator Center for International Studies 35 RESOURCES Many students in high school want to pursue edu- cation at the college level, but lack of monies hinders this desire to achieve. Their hopes of going to a school of higher learning are dwindled before they really get started. The Financial Aid office of UNCC strives to locate monies for these students and allow their de- sires to be fulfilled. With the ups and downs of today ' s economy and the forever budgeting cuts and higher prices — students can still find resources for school in some way or another. Virginia Edwards, spokesperson for Financial Aid, comments on who can get financial aid and what to expect in the near future. " Students from families with incomes below $30,000 should expect assis- tance even though it may only be an interest free loan during their enrollment period. Congress does not appear ready to make drastic cuts as recommend- ed in 1982. Loan collection regulations have been imposed fully, thereby improving collections and the image of student financial aid programs. " This can bring some light into the dark minds of the ponder- some perspective college student. UNCC ' s Campaign for Excellence continues through the financial aid process. " Additional schol- arship monies should be available due to the success of our Campaign for Excellence. While some of this additional scholarship money will be based on aca- demics only, much of it will still be based on academ- ics and need. " UNCC is a growing institution striving for the best in athletics, education, educational fa- cilities and any positive attribute that will enhance this progress. Aiding students will contribute to the success of the campaign. " Academic progress is a major concern in order to continue on financial aid. In all programs, a student must earn enough hours to expect graduation in no less than five years. Summer school is an option stu- dents have to bring their hours up to required aca- demic standards. " Financial aid is no free lunch to any student. Desiring students must continue to achieve in their classes and work hard to stay in an academic program — if that is indeed what they want to do. Another source of assistance for students is the Emergency Student Loan Fund. " This is available to students for unanticipated expenses and for payment of tuition or housing costs. Repayment is required before the end of the academic term. If a student needs long-term loan money, it is necessary to apply to one of the loan programs allowing repayment to be made after leaving school. " " The philosophy of the Financial Aid office is that we believe we can match a student with resources if there is demonstrated need and the student makes application on a timely basis, " concludes Virginia Ed- wards. The desire to continue educational achieve- ment can be rewarding. Wanting to do anything bad enough will produce some kind of results. Seeking aid for college can be found — but finding aid must be supported by the academic foundation that one is willing to exert. by Sonya Wiley Students in college can be looked upon as exper- iencing " the best years of their lives " — but who experiences these good times without a little money for spending? UNCC makes several jobs available each year for students in the particular situations who want to earn money. Each department in the various colleges usually employ at least one student worker through the fi- nancial aid office or through extra monies in their budgets. The students job description normally en- tails odds and end jobs that interrupt the secretarial jobs. Errands are run around campus and phones are answered. Papers for the professors are copied or classwork duplicated and put together. These odd jobs take away time that professors could spend plan- ning or doing research, therefore, allowing students to provide their time for these duties balances out the system. Other jobs can be located on campus. The resi- dence hall cafeterias. Cone Center, and the Rathskel- lar are student-oriented areas that employ many stu- dents each year. The athletic office provides extra- curricular activities through intramural sports which opens officiating jobs to students. Jobs of this nature and others can be found through the financial aid and placement offices. The minimum wage rate applies to most all of these student-worker related jobs. by Sonya Wiley JHii ' II I farm m - K r i BiMmamm«Mw««« II II I I B3V. •;m mi Kfl ••dirr in ' i »- - ' " - • ■ ■ .«■ r-_.-i. ' i. ' HUSTLEBALL PREVIEW UNCC second-year head bas- ketball coach Hal Wissel has a vastly different situation facing him in the 1 983-84 season as com- pared to his first pre-season 49er campaign in ' 82-83. In fact, it is a combination of circumstances that would be exciting for any college basketball coach. The 49ers return all five starters, four of which were double figure scorers last season; four other lettermen who saw sig- nificant playing time; and five newcomers who make up one of the best " on paper " recruiting classes in UNCC ' s 14-year Division I basketball history. Last season, Wissel inherited the remains of a 15-12 team (1981-82) that returned only two starters and had time to bring in only two recruits. In the process of learning Wissel ' s system and newly instilled work ethic philos- ophy of what it takes to win, the 49ers struggled to an 8-20 record. But don ' t let the record fool you. UNCC was one of the most com- petitive teams in the Sun Belt Conference by season ' s end, in- corporating Wissel ' s " Hustleball " approach to take the league ' s eventual NCAA playoff teams, VCU and UAB, to the wire before losing at the buzzer. " We ' re not satisfied with where we are but we ' re sure glad to not be where we were, " Wissel states simply about the state of the 49ers ' union. " I think we were considered the most improved team in the league last year by the end of the season. " UNCC will have the luxury of all five starting players returning, with four of them averaging in double figures — both first for the 49er basketball program. That starting quintet includes the frontline of 6-9 senior and leading scorer Melvin Johnson (16.3 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 52% FG, 79% FT), 6-5 se- nior and leading rebounder En- ery Atkinson (7.0 rpg, 14.2 ppg, 53.4% FG, 74.4% FT), and 6-8 ju- nior Leroy Smith (5.4 ppg, 4.4 rpg). That bulkier trio should im- prove the 49ers inside strength on defense and rebounding due to a strenuous off-season weight pro- gram. The guard regulars include 6-2 SBC assist leader Randy Davis (11.5 ppg, 6.0 apg, 51% FG, 75% FT), who was the nation ' s third leading three-point field goal shooter (.575) last season and will move from the point to the sec- ond guard spot in ' 83-84, and 6-3 John Gullickson (14.2 ppg, 3.3 apg, 82% FT). Providing experienced depth to the ' 83-84 squad will be 6-2 senior guard Irvin Williamson (7.9 ppg, 2.5 apg), a part-time starter last year; 6-5 senior small forward Ty- rone Stephens (2.9 ppg); 6-7 se- nior forward Reuben McDaniel (17 ppg); and 6-0 sophomore point guard Kim Bryant (1.2 ppg). Although all starters return for UNCC, they ' ll be hard pressed to hold their respective positions due to Wissel ' s excellent recruit- ing year. The five-player ' 83 class included the tallest 49er player in history in 6-11 Wilmington, N.C. product Ray Gromlowicz (14 ppg, 12 rpg for Laney High School), the 49ers ' first true center prospect since Cedric " Cornbread " Max- well (1973-77), and maybe the fastest ever in 5-11 New York City point guard Keith Williams (23 ppg, 6 apg for Bayside High School). " Grom " will beef up the 49er frontline and contend for a starting job before next season becomes history, while Williams could immediately earn starting status in running the 49er show at the point. The remaining three UNCC newcomers include 6-6 swing player Rusty Hargraves of Hamil- ton, Ohio (19 ppg, 9 rpg for Hamil- ton High School), who will com- pete with Davis for the shooting guard slot; 6-3 defensive special- ist Billy Wheeler of Springfield Gardens, N.Y. (18.3 ppg, 10 rpg for Bishop Loughlin High School), who ' ll make the conversion to big guard from high school center; and 6-0 junior college point guard Michael Gardner of Union, N.J. (8 ppg; 10 apg for Union College), who ' ll challenge Williams for leadership honors. " The five kids we brought in are gonna play, " Wissel flatly pre- dicts. The former Division II na- tional coach of the year is, in ef- fect, challenging his veterans to work hard, scrap and improve if they expect to receive significant playing time. " We are making progress in two areas. The players returning have a better understanding of the dedication and effort needed to win. And in recruiting, the in- coming players, although not on everyone ' s blue-chip list, have us tremendously excited about their attitude and dedication. I ' ve al- ways preferred great attitude over great talent. I ' m really ex- cited about the kids we brought in. They ' re the type young men that give us a solid foundation for a championship program at UNCC.

Second-year Lady 49er head coach Ann Payne proved one thing last season. She could and did build an immediate winner for UNCC in its first season of NCAA Division 1 competition. Payne took a nucleus of returning seniors from a 10-13 Division II 1981-82 finish and molded a 14-13 campaign last season with only five newcomers. The Lady 49ers late-season surge of consecutive victories over such prominent teams as Wake Forest, Duke, South Carolina, and UNC-Wilmington proved that UNCC is a team worthy of its new setting. The 1983-84 rendition shows only three returning lettermen, but those three comprised last year ' s starting frontline. Rebounder deluxe Sylvia Akers. who led the Lady 49ers in rebounding in an amazing 26 of 27 games and scored 17 points per contest, teams with fellow forward and Sun Belt Conference second-leading scorer Candy Lucas (19.6) and start- ing pivot player Margueritte Parker (12.5 ppg) to re- turn 67% of the total team scoring from last season. The aforementioned line was also responsible for better than 60% of the team ' s rebounding efforts. Payne also notched what has to be the best (and the largest) recruiting class in the program ' s eight-year history. Included in that freshman class is UNCC ' s tallest player ever is 6-3 Constance Remley (13 ppg, 8 rpg) and three other players who are six feet or better is 6-1 Charlotte native Susan Concepcion (16.0, 15.1); 6-1 Kristen Wilson of Munich, West Germany, who was chosen as the European (Female) Athlete of the Year while averaging 25 points and 21 rebounds per game; and 6-0 Sheri Williams (17.3, 10.9). Gone is playmaker Maria Byars, who led the Lady 49ers in assists the last three seasons. So Payne will try to fill the graduate ' s shoes with four highly touted backcourters in Kim Gainor (18.6, 12.5); Gay Abood (15.0, 5.1); Shelton Kennington (5.1, 2.2); or Stephanie Means (18.1, 7.2) or walk-on Brenda Keys. The sec- ond guard position was also vacated by graduation and if Payne does not move Lucas to that spot, any one of those five frosh will fit nicely in that situation. " I ' m high on the character of the eight individuals that we signed for this year, " Payne enthusiastically stated. " Not only are they good athletes, but they are sharp young people. I am really looking forward to working with them. " " Considering what we needed to recruit and the returning production of our three lettermen, I feel we have complimented their play and style with our quality recruits. " " We ' ll start at least two freshmen every game and that leaves us with a supporting bench of at least five 4b freshmen, so saying that we are a young team is real- ly an understatement. But, we have solid athletes in our 12 players. " The only immediate forseen weakness is the abili- ty of the nine freshmen to adjust to college play and Payne ' s coaching style and philosophy. But, couple that with the toughest schedule in Lady 49er basket- ball history, one that features Tennesse Tech; Clem- son; East Carolina; N.C. State; Western Kentucky; UAB; East Tennessee State; South Carolina; Univer- sity of D.C.; and North Carolina, and Payne will have to develop immediate maturity if UNCC is to have another winning season in 1983-84. —1983-84 Official Media Guide 46 MBHHBBMmffiWfflaW %. SOCCER: " DR. JEKYL AND MR. HYDE The story of " Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde " (for the UNCC soccer team) envelops with a remarkable best ever start in eight collegiate seasons with a 4-1-1 mark. A major spill in the interaction of the soccer team led to a major turn-around. (Enter Mr. Hyde) South Florida defeated the 49 ' ers in the Gamecock Invitational, 8-0, leaving the soccer team in a tail- spin, landing a 1-8-1 mark. The plot thus far of our " Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde " is that UNCC started out great, but took a turn for the worse — thus leaving the soccer team with a fourth- place seed in the season-ending Sun Belt Conference soccer championship. UNCC (8-8-4) was going to have to face top-seeded South Florida (14-4-1) in the semi-finals of the tournament (a psychological disad- vantage) if surpassing fifth-seeded Western Kentucky in the opening round. " I was upset with the seeding, simply because I didn ' t like the idea that if we got by Western (Kentucky) we would have to play USF the next day " , Warming admitted. " But, you have to win all three games to be (SBC) champs and we ' ll play them one at a time. " The first half of the tournament opening seemed a continuum of the second half of the season with Western scoring two goals in the first nine minutes. " I was ready to leave " , Warming later said. (Enter Dr. Jekyl) In the last 30 seconds of the first half, Marty Apple and Eddie Griesmer punched in goals to tie the game at halftime 2-2. In the second half senior cap- tain Doug Harrell, junior Ray Leone, and Griesmer scored three goals to defeat the Hilltoppers 5-3. UNCC went out hungry facing the South Florida Bulls, nationally 18th ranked. UNCC battled to a 2-2 tie at the end of 90 minutes of regulation and two overtimes. Defense was the key to the determination of the 49 ' ers led by sophomore Craig Brown, keeper Gary Mangione, and freshman Neil Orridge. Howev- er, to advance to the finals, NCAA rules called for the use of five alternating penalty kicks from each side. The determination from both teams prevailed. They tied once again with five penalty kicks apiece. " Sudden-Death " format would determine the win- ner with penalty kicks. Orridge scored for UNCC and keeper Gary Mangione saved the goal leading the 49 ' ers into the finals of the SBA championship to face Old Dominion. UNCC played the longest game of its history to defeat the " Big-Blue " , 1-0 in six overtimes, on Leone ' s third goal of the tournament and the defen- sive trio of Brown, Orridge, and Mangione (career- high 10 saves). This marked the first-ever Sun Belt Conference soccer championship for the 49 ' er soccer program. " I ' ve never been prouder of a bunch of guys than I was this weekend " , said Warming after collect- ing his second straight conference coach-of-the-year award. " They played their hearts out. It was the greatest thrill of my eight collegiate coaching sea- sons. " Sophomore stopper back Craig Brown was named tournament most valuable player. Juniors Michael Johnston and Ray Leone — who scored the champi- onship game-winner, and senior keeper Gary Man- gione joined Brown on the all-SBC squad. — Sonya Wiley 48 minnimrnr t I kj« W =:= Ss ' 3 H 1H Chris Flannigan saves the ball from going out of bounds.

Until this past year UNCC has been playing in Division II and Division III leagues. This year UNCC moved up into playing Division I ball and is fast becoming known as an national power. As Coach Kay lohnson puts it . . . " They used to say Charlotte-who? UNCC-who? . . . now schools like the University of Florida and other northern schools know who we are. " The UNCC ' 83 softball team consists of many new freshman players of which four of the five start. Coach Johnson says the biggest challenge was for the younger players to make adjustments. " The transi- tion from high school softball to college-level ball is very difficult. " All of the traveling involved and the heavy burden of college-level academic courses must be disciplined into a strict routine. This disci- plining includes giving up a lot of weekends to play ball. Coach Johnson adds, " The majority of the play- ers have successfullv made the transition. " She con- tinues, " Everyone has helped the team in some way or another. " Freshman pitcher Lea Sisk expresses her feelings in being recruited to pitch college-level ball after playing in high school softball. " I was scared to death when I thought of playing with UNCC. I wasn ' t sure if they would accept me . . . but I made the adjust- ment. I was also unsure of playing Division I caliber of softball — but like all of the other adjustments, I made this one also. " She concludes, " I feel good about the team and I have learned a lot about the impor- tance of timing and scheduling when playing softball in the college-level. " Missy Speas, a graduating senior, has been with the UNCC softball team for four years. She reflects on some of the changes and growth of UNCC. " My first year at UNCC we came in second in the State in Division II and we have had winning seasonas all four years. I ' ve come from playing Division II and III levels of softball to playing Division I and other na- tioanlly ranked teams. I have also seen UNCC be- come known in slow pitch softball as a national pow- er. " The softball team had the best season of all of the Spring Sports this year. This could, in effect, be due to the fact that Coach Johnson is leaving the coaching position of UNCC softball. This is Johnson ' s last year as softball coach at UNCC and she remarks. " I ' m sad about leaving the team and I will miss not being involved with the team. " She says that there have been no noticeable changes in attitudes or that leav- ing has not affected the team. We feel sure that the team wanted to give Coach Johnson a season to re- member. by Sonya Wiley Left: 1983 Coach Kay lohnson. 53 BASEBALL SUCCESS AGAINST THE TOUGHEST Second-year Coach Gary Rob- inson made himself at home this year at UNCC and welcomed a new challenge to the 49er base- ball program. He made several changes and pushed his and oth- ers ' ideas to start a better baseball program as well as a chance for more support for the young men. The UNCC intercollegiate baseball program started in 1979 due to the rules governing the NCAA to sponsor a minimum of six men ' s varsity sports. The school did not have the facilities for a baseball park; however, Frances Crockett made her park available to the University, which helped tremendously — though it was a 24 mile round-trip. Coach Gary Robinson replaced Gary Bartley for the ' 82 season and Robinson has headed up- ward from the beginning. He im- proved the 49er record from 22- 32 in ' 81 to 17-26-1 in ' 82 and also started making plans for a base- ball park that UNCC could call her very own. Director of Athlet- ics Clyde Walker did the initial funding but Coach Robinson pushed and got a lot of the materi- als and man hours donated. Of course, nothing was free but he was also able to get materials that were not donated at a much low- er price. UNCC ' s Physical Plant employee Terry Miller served as a type of foreman for Robinson making sure things were going smoothly to the end. For the ' 83 season, UNCC had its own field on which to play. To break in the new field, Robinson led the team through their best season against the most competi- tive schedule ever in the sport ' s five-year history, posting a 21-18 mark. Also for the ' 83 season, sev- eral team records were set by the squad; some of which were: Doubles: 79 Homeruns: 37 Fielding Percentage: 944 Runs Batted In: 242 Most Home Wins: 16 Most Sun Belt Conference Wins: 9 Best SBC Winning Percentage: 583 The only obstacle in Coach Robinson ' s course of action against developing UNCC base- ball into a top 40 college program is a lack of needed scholarship dollars, which should be incorpo- rated into the system soon. Keep your eyes on Coach Rob- inson ' cause there is a lot more in store for UNCC from this dedi- cated coach and his young prote- ges. by Sonya Wiley Right: Susan Maristan reaches for a high one.

WOMEN ' S TENNIS Coach Penny Brawley, with three of her top four tennis play- ers returning from last season, is improving and stepping up from the NCAIAW Division I to the first year of Division I. Brawley missed her preseason goal of winning 70% of their games in Division I by only 3%. Leading the 49ers through their most challenging schedule be- cause of the transition to Divsion I were seniors Dorothy Bunn and Susan Romeo and juniors Stacy Mender and Kellie Kayton. hold- ing the top four positions. Num- ber 5 and 6 spots were held by freshmen Emily Taylor and Mary Ann McKenner. The remaining players were the depth to the ' 83 squad: fresh- men Susan Marston, and Jill Nas- tase and senior Maria Byars. Brawley notes, " I think for the first time we have depth all the way down the ladder. In the past we ' ve had strength in the top and a void in the middle so the lower players had to play higher. Now everyone is playing in the right place where they should be. " by Sonya Wiley and ]im Daves 56 UIH MEN ' S TENNIS Any good team can improve just as the ' 83 men ' s tennis pro- gram proved. Dr. Ed Hopper, fin- ishing up his third year at UNCC as tennis coach, had various per- spectives on his ' 83 team. The im- provement in the individual players as well as six returning lettermen, affirms the pre-season perspective by Coach Hopper as having the best season in the his- tory of the program. In the past, the weakest point in the lineup was the doubles divi- sion. " Our players are just begin- ning to learn to play doubles. " Hopper ' s pre-season comments with respect to the two new play- ers in his doubles line-up were: " No longer will we be weak sis- ters in doubles. A lot more time has been spent on it this season. " Left: Todd Stewart ready with the backhand. Left Bottom: Bill Hoden gives it an overhead. Below: |ohn Holigsworth runs for this one. UNCC finished the season with a 13-11 record. " Our team is 60% better than it has ever been, but our schedule is 65% tougher. " With seemingly all sports schedules becoming more competitive, the need to develop the peak or full potential before the season is needed. The team is fairly young, with only two se- niors, but a relatively mature team. Leadership ability of Nick Farinella, Ed Caldwell, and John Hollingsworth added to the depth of the season. The tennis team hosted the Sun Belt Conference Tournament on campus this year. The courts are located on campus with bleach- ers. The UNCC logo was also add- ed to the appearance on the courts. The facilities are ade- quate for UNCC viewers and scoreboards, singles stocks and net posts allow the students to sit back and watch UNCC grow through the winners of the UNCC tennis team. by Sonya Wiley 57 MEN ' S AND WOMEN ' S . . . HKBBHHMM niimimanF " 1 " " — ■ Second year coach Terry Warner is not looking for praise after implementing UNCC ' s first swim team, but he does admit, " We ' ll be optimistic and do some things that other people might not believe from a second-year team. " This statement has already raised some eyebrows around the Metro Conference. The Connecticut-born former all-American Southern-Methodist swimmer brings a unique character to this avenue of athletics. He is very optimistic and sees no limitation and quotes author Jonathan Bach in discussing his team ' s philosophy, " Argue your limitations and sure enough they are yours. " While recruiting this summer he applied the concept of " no limitation " and attracted average high school athletes who fit his style of coaching, " kids who are eager to learn. " Warner split the team into a men ' s swimming team and women ' s swimming team because of the possibility of a couple of swimmers making all-Americas. He signed two former all-America ' s from the University of Miami, Lisa Zeiser and Meegan Wright for the ' 83-84 season. Zeiser became the first athlete in UNCC athletic history to qualify for individual competition in NCAA competition when she broke the qualifying time of 23. 89 for the 50- yard free style by 0.24 seconds with a mark of 23.65. Heading the list of recruits for the men ' s team is John Whitner, who was a Junior National Qualifier last summer. Rounding out the ' 83-84 men ' s team are: Chris Washburn, John McKinney, Todd Archer, Jeff Gam- mons, David Harmon, Mike Carruthers, Mike Baker, Al Gustatson, and Glenn and Greg Pysher. For the women ' s team Megan Walklet, Nacy Hunt, Margaret Litton and Tammy Abdulhads will join Meegan Wright and Lisa Zeiser this season. . . . SWIMMING 59 .

GOLF TEAM i i 63 SPORTS NEWS FOR RELEASE: IMMEDIATE JANUARY 18, 1984 UNITED STATES ARMY SERGEANT FIRST CLASS WILLIE MATTHEW NAMED TO MAN UNCC RIFLE TEAM UNCC director of athletics Clyde Walker announced today that United States Army Sergeant First Class Willie Matthew will man the 49ers ' second-year sport of co-ed rifle. Matthew, 33, has been on-campus instructor and representative in UNCC ' s Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) since July 1982. A native of Jonesville, Louisiana, Matthew attended Grambling University (Grambling, LA) from 1968-69. " This is an experience I have wanted to have, " said Matthew upon accepting his new position. " It will present a big challenge to me and to UNCC. I have always had a very big interest in coaching. " Matthew was a member of the U.S. Army ' s rifle team (1974-75) and made his coaching debut in Europe. Matthew coached in Baumholder, Germany from 1979-81 where he was stationed as a platoon sergeant. His Baumholder Bears squads won the U.S. Army championships both in 1980 and 1981 and in his first stint (1979) Matthew led the Bears to a runner-up finish. UNCC ' s newest staff member entered the service in 1971 and besides serving in Europe, Matthew was also a pathfinder and an anti-tank weapon gunner while stationed at Fort Bragg (North Carolina). " I already have six students that are very interested in our program and I want to have a roster of at least 10 or 12, " said Matthew. Matthew replaces U.S. Marine Corps Master Sergeant George Sigler, who resigned earlier in this academic year because of Marine action overseas. r,4 n ' j»r4raaff« ftK anuntnnimiH l JlffQE K Staff Dave Taylor Alhletic Foundalion and Promotions Director Judy Wilkins Assistant Athletic Director Clyde Walker UNCC Director of Athletics Eric Hansley |im " Spook " Daves Athletic Department Directory Wes Aldnch (Asst Basketball) Becky Bowman (Volleyball Softball) Penny Brawley (W Tennis) Faith Anne Carroll (Secretary) Mark Colone (Sports Information Director Karl Coombes (M Tennis Jim " Spook " Daves (Student Asst SID) David Hall (Cross Country) Floyd Kerr (Golf) Celia Laney (Secretary) Maggi McCutchen (Basketball Secretary) Ann Payne (W Basketball) Steve Pope (Asst Baseball) Scott Pospichal (Part-time Basketball Asst ) Gary Robinson (Baseball) Dave Taylor (Foundation Promotions Director) George Sigler (Rifle) Clyde Walker (Director of Athletics) Bob Warming (Soccer) Terry Warner (Swimming) Melvin Watkms (Asst Basketball) Judy White (Ticket Manager Judy Wilkins (Asst Athletic Director) Hal Wissel (Basketball) Ken Wright (Trainer) Tom Turner Faculty Representative 65 ■ ■ ■ ■ B ■ Bl II ■ ■ B B ■1 n B B B Bl H ■ ■ B ill | ■ ■ | H B B B 1 11 ■ ■ | fl 1 B B B| ■ | | bpb ■ . u | | | m 5 M B 1 BB il n ■1 II ■ | | i ■ | B 1 B 1 | H Bl UP iifii 5 [ as LSB ■ | | 1 1 B H B l| a I BBB I B B 1 1 li Ik u ■ | B II 1 | || H Hi IB | | ■■ | 1 B 1 III ill | | B B BB 1 1 1 III | | B ■B B 1 1 II | ■ II B BB B Bl BBL Bl II ■ ■ ■ IBB Bl ■ B BBBI II ■ BB ■■ BBBI 11 ■ ■ ■ OB Bl bhbI 111 ■ ■ ■ BB ■■ B ■bb| 11 ■ ■■ Bl BBBI 11 mil m fllll II | ■ B« BBBI ■an! ■■ | J mum aaowaBBS KM MR.

Everyone knows how hard life, in general, is when only a small amount of people support what you know could develop into a success. UNCC, as a whole, has a similar problem; it is in a rebuilding and developing stage and needs much support. We wish to pass along a few thoughts that could aid in UNCC ' s growth. A Yearbook is only a hardback book full of pictures; yet to some it is a book full of memories of what is often called " the best years of their lives. " A lot of our students lack the unity with the University system in the area of extra-curricular activities, and therefore miss a lot of chances to add to their own memory book. We, at the Prosp ector, started out with a task that had been buried for a while due to a lack of inter- est and student support. But we felt that it was a worthy cause, so students were encouraged to at- tend meetings and join the staff — as well as other staffs — and get involved with their whole school. We gathered ideas of what students wanted and gave them room to share them: this is a con- tinual process in our growth. There is a fine line between success and failure in all that one does. And the components that make up the difference are dedi- cation and determination. We were hoping to get students in- volved in all areas of the Univer- sity. We are a fairly young school compared to the other estab- lished universities. But still, the students make the difference no matter what school they happen to be attending. Front Row: Steve Edlund.

Delta Zeta was es- tablished as the Delta Phi Zeta Colony on November 7th, 1969. Since then, Delta Zeta has grown into a firmly established and con- sistently strong sorority. Delta Zeta encourages individ- uality, high scholarship, service to others and active participation on campus. Sisters of Delta Zeta are in- volved in almost every aspect of campus life, involvements such as: resident advisors, fraternity sweethearts and little sisters, hostesses for the athletic depart- ment, psychology proctors, Greek women of the year, homecoming representatives, student govern- ment, cheerleaders, honor soci- eties, and intramurals keep Delta Zeta busy. The entire sorority participates in intramurals, Greek week, jam up, and many various philanthro- pies; including fundraisers for the Charlotte Rehabilitation Hospi- tal. The Kappa Phi Chapter of the Delta Zeta Sorority was honored at the Delta Zeta National Con- vention; held in Dallas, Texas; by winning four national awards! Delta Zeta lastly, but most im- portantly is a unique bond of sis- terly love between sixty-five young women.

It was founded by a group of " inspiring " young men committed to the ideals of Brotherhood and Achievement. The Zeta Delta Chapter of KAPPA ALPHA PSI was the first Black Chartered Greek organization at UNCC in 1970. This Chapter has served with the campus community and the surrounding areas. KAPPA ALPHA PSI serves the University through efforts in the aieas of the Student Government Associ- ation, and Student Court. The Brothers of KAPPA ALPHA PSI also hold positions within the Black Student Union, NAACR Inter-Fraternity Council, Student Government Association, and Resident Advisors. In the Charlotte Community the Brothers have been involved with the Salvation Army Boys Club, Welfare Cheese Distribution and the Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation. KAPPA ALPHA PSI FRATERNITY has successfully sponsored the Miss 49er Pageant for the past 12 years, which has been one of the major events held on the campus of UNCC. Achievement, Leadership, and Brotherhood are continuing goals of KAPPA ALPHA PSI, and the Brothers of the Zeta Delta Chapter shall uphold these goals in the true tradition of KAPPA ALPHA PSI.

Policies and Achievements provides a fa- vorable environment for the further development of its members — intellectually, emotionally and so- cially. Since being founded at UNCC on April 17, 1982, the Delta Kappa Chapter of Chi Omega has become very involved on campus. We have girls involved in cheerleading, student government, sports like tennis and volleyball, and also hostessing for UNCC sports events. Chi Omega has also participated in home- coming and intramural sports, being the women ' s all-campus intramural champs in 1983. Chi Omega also works with the community around UNCC. We help the elderly in Charlotte with anything they might need like to go shopping or just somebody to talk to. We also hold parties for the children in area hospitals at Halloween, Christmas and Easter. Chi Omega also enriches each member ' s life so- cially through mixers with the fraternities and other events held during the year. Also through Chi Ome- ga, deep loyalties and devotion to each other are cre- ated. " CHI OMEGA CONTRIBUTES SOMETHING WHOLESOME TO THE WHOLE OF ONE ' S LIFE.

Well, what it means is that Kappa Al- pha Order has finally come to the campus of UNCC. The Epsilon XI Chapter of Kappa Alpha Order was found at UNCC several years ago as the lo- cal fraternity Sigma Epsilon Chi. On April 27, 1983 the local frater- nity received a provisional charter from Kappa Alpha. And during the Fall 1984 the brothers worked diligently to meet a long list of requirements for charter- ing, until finally on January 27, 1984 the Epsilon XI Chapter re- ceived its charter. Kappa Alpha Order maintains the ideals of chivalry as personi- fied by Gen. Robert E. Lee, our spiritual founder. Lee was chosen for this position not because of a particular uniform that he wore but rather because he exempli- fied all the best qualities of knighthood, even in defeat. A Kappa Alpha strives to be gentle- manly at all times and also main- tains civil and social obligations. An example of this is the diverse positions Kappa Alpha ' s serve in on campus which include Resi- dent Advisors, Lab Assistants, Research Assistants, members of ODK and APO and various offices in student government. During the year the KA ' s spon- sored numerous campus events: which included a Halloween Par- ty, several Nugget Nights, orga- nized lunacy at basketball games and several projects for the Mus- cular Dystrophy Association, our national charity.

The two are closely related and compliment one another. As a student becomes more involved in the school ' s functions they, in turn, tend to be more productive in their classes. UNCC ' s enrollment rises each year and will con- tinue to be one of the fastest growing schools in the nation with the plans of a University City. Tactics to prompt students to join in with University activities continue to be developed — but students need to take the initiative and support athletics, organiza- tions, and student media.

FRETWELL JR. 5TVPCKTD: Greetings to the Class of 1984 FROM: K. Fretwell Jr., Chancellor During your stay at UNCC you have watched your University come of age in many ways. You have seen graduates score well on state-wide tests and many of you have done well in competitions such as debate, Model United Nations, and en- gineering paper contests. Many of your professors have achieved regional and national academic recognition. The long awaited development of the University City area began to gain speed during your college career, and you have now the prospect of returning as Alumni to watch one of the most exciting and promising University communities in the nation take shape. Your University has a destiny in higher education in North Carolina and the nation, but more importantly each of you has a destiny in life. We at UNCC hope that we have helped to prepare the way for you to achieve your goals. Ultimately each of you have it within your power in our free society to shape your destiny. We at the University wish you success and happiness in your journey. Keep in touch through active involvement in your Alumni Association, and visit the campus whenever you have the opportunity. Best wis! .etwell Jr. 147 VICE CHA Vice Chancellor of Business Affairs Leo Ells began working at UNCC in February of 1976, eight years ago. As Chief Financial Officer at UNCC he super- vises the operation of all auxiliary enterprises and business type activities, such as the Bookstore, food service, printing and vending. He also supervises ac- counting, collection and disbursing functions, and manages University investments, along with Phys- ical Plant operations and new construction. After receiving his B.S. at the University of Mary- land, and later his M.B. A. from Syracuse, he spent 20 years in the Army, before working at Texas Tech. University in Lubbock, Texas. Ells enjoys working with students, and feels that during times when classes are not in session, " The very nature of the University changes from the Uni- versity being a desirable place to work to a very de- pressing place. When we go through those times with no students on campus, " he said, " this is a very de- pressing place to work. " Vice Chancellor of Development Dr. William Britt has been at UNCC for 11 years. As Vice Chancellor of Development, Dr. Britt is responsible for develop- ment and community relations. He has the responsi- bility of securing support through the private sector through land, stock, and equipment. He also oversees Alumni Affairs and the UNCC Foundation. " The ve- hicle, " he said, " by which private gifts are accrued to the University. " Dr. Britt received his undergraduate degree in his- tory from Western Carolina University, his Masters degree in Administration and Supervision in Educa- tion from U.N.C. at Chapel Hill, and his Ph.D. in Administration in Higher Education from the Uni- versity of Tennessee. When asked about UNCC, he said he felt a " sense df vitality about here that promotes the University ' s sense of willingness to work. " In regards to the future he feels that " as an institution, UNCC will assume a more prominent role in public higher education in North Carolina. " m jm ! m m a » n m t m K mmmm,mMm Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Chuck Lynch has been at UNCC for 11 years. As Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs he is responsible for developing and coordinating student functions on campus. The organizations he over- sees are the Placement Office, the Counseling Center, the Health Center, Residence Life, University Center, the Dean of Students, Intramurals, and Financial Aid. During his 11 years at UNCC he has worked in Resi- dence Life and was then Dean of Students for five years before serving as Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students. He received his undergraduate degree in English from C. W. Post in Long Island, and his Masters degree in Stu- dent Personnel from the University of Miami in Florida. He enjoys working at UNCC and said, " What encour- aged me to come and keeps me here is a sort of dynamism . . . people who like to think in terms of change and growth. " " There is a real positive relationship between students and leaders, " he said. " That ' s been real positive to work with. " MCELLORS bv Carol Bibby Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs Dr. James Werntz has been at UNCC for two years. As Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs he oversees the aca- demic programs on campus, the faculty in each col- lege, and the finances to pay for both of them. Prior to working at UNCC, Dr. Werntz worked for 25 years at the University of Minnesota at Minneapo- lis. He taught physics before entering into adminis- tration. He received his undergraduate degree in Physics from Oberlin College, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Dr. Werntz feels the most positive aspect of UNCC is " its youth and its relation to a growing, vigorous community. " " It ' s a good place to be, " he said. Vice Chancellor of Research and Public Service Dr. Douglas Orr Jr. has been at UNCC for 15 years. As Vice Chancellor of Research and Public Service, Dr. Orr works with academic grants and contracts, the continuing education and Extension Programs, the Urban Institute, the Center for International Studies.

He is currently working on a book about the South and its geography. Dr. Orr enjoys working at UNCC and feels one of its positive aspects is the atmosphere. He feels there is a sense of relative newness here, and that " the con- tinuing diversity of our student body reflects the real world. " - Dr. Bonnie Cone shares the beauty of her gifts from the university. 150 iHBi BONNIE CONE: her world I knocked on the door to Dr. Bonnie Cone ' s office in ' Garinger and was invited in. Instantly, I knew I was in her world by her presence. We talked for about thirty minutes and then she invited me to her house for fur- ther conversation and some pictures. When I pulled into the driveway of Miss Cone ' s home, another of her worlds greeted me, and so did she, at the back door. We went in to begin the interview; Miss Cone poured us some Coke. While sitting there in the dining room I asked her about her feelings toward the University City, and the continuing growth of UNCC. Her not surprising reply was, " Just thrilled. " In addition, she said that the initial goal is to be the finest of the sixteen campuses in the UNC system and the city will help attain this objective, as well as serving North- east Mecklenburg, both students and business. She also emphasized the importance of the University Memori- al Hospital to the students in the College of Nursing. We moved on to talk about the prospects of having big time Division I-A football at UNCC. Before answering outright, Miss Cone related that in 1946 Charlotte Col- lege had a team made up of student veterans home from the war and that student fees paid for the uniforms. She continued that while football would be fun to see, if it can be financed and supported, we have a basketball program that lacks support. And when we start filling up the Coliseum with fans, then we can start work on developing a football program. Dr. Cone then told me about her " Mean Green " suit which she wears to every game and how she enjoys hearing the cheerleaders and the pep band perform at the games. About halfway through our conversation Miss Cone ' s good friend, Dr. Loy Witherspoon, stopped by and asked if he could cut some roses for a centerpiece. We went out and helped Miss Cone cut roses from her large beds, consisting of ten to fifteen varieties of the flower. She then prepared them for Dr. Witherspoon and as he left we resumed our talk. On the idea of a fraternity row she said that architects had designed a plan years ago but because of lack of finances the plan was never implemented. She agreed that such a place was needed and certainly so since the new Safe Roads Act came into being, because of the number of students having to drive after parties. Her opinion of the new alcohol policy is that " any- thing to save more young lives " is needed and can do nothing short of helping the present highway fatality situation. Upon telling Dr. Cone of the proposal to take away the free period on Tuesdays and Thursdays, she agreed with us, that this would leave many students out of campus activities and would possibly " fragment the student body. " She also commented that she also enjoys this time and frequently goes out on campus to attend functions and have lunch. Finally, I asked Miss Cone what she thought the most important contribution that the present UNCC can make to the community. She answered, " To provide higher educational opportunities to a larger number of high school graduates who want to go to college but otherwise could not go. " She added that UNCC gives a wide selection of offerings to a large selection of people and gives the community an educational opportunity to attract and hold industry. After our talk. Miss Cone invited me for a walk into her world, which is as close as her back yard. Nearly every plant in her garden is a gift from someone con- nected with the school and as we walked along she pointed out the many different kinds of plants and the history behind each one. At one point in the journey she said that her world, at one time, ended where we stood, but with the help of a gardener she was able to extend her world a little farther. Upon leaving, I thought about how Miss Cone has made our world a nicer place to live and whether we know it or not we all share a place in Miss Bonnie Cone ' s world and she in ours. by Steve Edlund COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE The COA here at UNCC has some very definite goals that it (and Dean Hight) wants to accomplish. But first, perhaps a short discussion of what architecture is all about is in order. According to Dean Hight, " Architecture is one of the most important physical manifestations of a culture. " Architecture is a certain attitude towards the environ- ment and its values. Also, architecture is a relationship between people, buildings, and nature, as well as ex- pressing the technological development of the society. Now for the hopes and goals of Dean Hight and the UNCC College of Architecture. They want to complete a curriculum review in order to refine the program. They hope to establish an advisory council for the COA that includes the business community and manufac- turing people who are involved in architecture. Last, but certainly not least, they hope to improve the quality of student understanding and the work that it repre- sents. These are some fine goals, and Dean Hight and the COA are well on their way to achieving them. By George Raihala 152 ■ . iaiwwwn— ,—,.

Baccalaureate degrees are offered in all depart- ments and areas of studies except American Studies. There are many graduate degrees available also, de- pending on the courses. The College of Arts and Sciences stresses instruction for specialization in natural and social sciences and mathematics. This college is headed by Dean Burson, who is also a Professor of Chemistry. Internship pro- grams, which give the students opportunities to study outside the classroom, are sponsored by the College. The preprofessional programs offered prepare UNCC students to continue their studies for professional train- ing at other institutions. Cooperative programs work with other schools of higher education to grant a UNCC degree. 156 COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION A major accomplishment for the College was the granting of accreditation by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for the undergraduate degree programs of the College. The granting of accreditation was based on the unani- mous vote of the member schools of the Accredita- tion Council of the AACSB. The receipt of AACSB accreditation is a recognition of overall high quality and adds to the stature of our College. One of the best indicators of the quality of the instruction and the effectiveness of the programs of- fered by the College is a study which was conducted during the 1979-80 academic year by Professor Allan Palmer. The survey information was collected from a large sample of the graduates of the College. The findings of the study are contained in the 1981-82 Annual Year Report of the College of Business Ad- ministration and in Self-Study Report submitted to the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. The respondents gave very high marks to the quality of their academic preparation, and 95 percent of those responding considered their UNCC degree to be competitive with the degrees received by their colleagues from other colleges and universi- ties. The other findings of this study were equally complimentary of the College. Another very good indicator of the quality of in- struction is provided by the results on the CPA ex- amination. In the last several years, UNCC graduates have ranked either first or second in the University System in the success rate on the CPA examination. Concerning Community Service, The North Caro- lina Economic Forecast Project provided quarterly forecasts of the North Carolina economy in Novem- ber, 1982 and May, 1983. The first annual issue of Forecast was released in February, 1983. In addition, the Forecast Project, in conjunction with the Depart- ment of Economics and the College, held a highly successful Economic Outlook Conference at the Ra- disson Hotel in March, 1983. This annual conference will become a regular part of the output of the Fore- cast Project. The College seeks to provide a good learning envi- ronment for its students. Close attention is paid to program development, faculty recruiting, advising, and the physical facilities in which the learning pro- cess takes place. The Friday Business Administration Building has helped provide the appropriate kind of physical environment, particularly in the design of the forum classrooms and in the availability of the heading Room, which provides an excellent location for students to study. Compliments of the College of Business 157 COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Of the students at UNCC, which ones have the most studying to do on Friday nights? Which students spend more hours writing up lab reports? Which ones get drilled and redrilled on basic as well as highly sophisticat- ed techniques of problem solving? Finally, when these students graduate, who are they that will shape tomorrow ' s lifestyles? Of course, the answers to all of these questions is engineers, or engineering students rather. Dr. Robert Snyder, Dean of the College of Engineering, refers to engineers as a " different breed of cat. They are devoted students who have chosen a lifestyle in which they must be willing to give up certain luxuries, such as partying, Monday Night Football, and various other activities that make college, college. " Although the sacrifices do exist, a career in engineering does have its rewards. First, it is among the more respected fields that are represented in today ' s society. They have the ability to solve problems that normal people cannot tackle, or even attempt to tackle. Second, it has its financial re- wards. And probably most important is the third reward, variety. The variety of jobs that make up the profession make each task a new experi- ence; therefore, the profession never gets boring. The College of Engineering offers four undergraduate degree programs: the Bachelor of Engineering Technology (for those students who already possess Associate Degrees from other schools), Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Civil Engineering. Each of these programs pro- vides a number of activites to keep its students off the streets on Friday nights. • SHELDON PHELPS SMITH ENGINEERING BUILDING COMPLETED 1966 NAMED IN HONOR OF SHELDON PHELPS SMITH MEMBER.

Experimental learning pro- vides an opportunity to use actual experiences for the student to pursue as a motivating force for deepened study.

To ensure a well rounded graduate, the Col- lege requires the development of competencies in one or both of these helping specialties. aBaaaaBMMBaaBMMMi ND LEARNING ...3049A lean. . .3046 3049 1 r.

V L __ fc_? £ The College of Nursing at UNCC officially opened in July. 1965 with two faculty members and eight students. The first class graduated in 1969 with three graduates. Since then and pres- ently there are twenty-nine full time faculty who have creden- tials and expertise in a variety of areas in the nursing profession. Collectively they represent a very diverse group. The College graduated 159 students in May of 1983 and current enrollment is up to 428, a large increase since the opening of the program. The College of Nursing contin- ues to attract students with dif- ferent educational goals. The Col- lege offers a Pathways Option program to graduates of associate degree and hospital programs to enable them to complete their baccalaureate degree. This Op- tion was started in 1978 and there have been over 275 graduates since then. Striving to continually upgrade the educational output, a revised undergraduate curriculum was implemented in Fall of 1982. The graduates continue to score in the top percentages on the N.C. State Board of Nursing licensure ex- amination. Several organizations have been formed through the College of Nursing. The Gamma Iota Chapter of the National Honor Society, Sigma Theta Tau, was chartered in 1978 and has grown since then each year. The College of Nursing and Sigma Tau co- sponsor an Annual Spring Lec- tureship. A nationally known nursing leader participates in this program. This event continues to draw large audiences from the nursing community in the sur- rounding areas. The Student Nurses Association was formed in 1970 has grown each year. Dur- ing 1983 the organization changed its name to the Associ- ation of Nursing Students reflect the changes they perceive in the nursing profession. Another item of interest is that the College of Nursing received re-accreditation from the Nation- al League for Nursing in Decem- ber of 1982, which is effective through 1990. The accreditation is very important to students as well as the University. The Nursing program is a grow- ing and beneficial program to the Institution. University Memorial Hospital, which is currently un- der construction, will be a major asset to the growth of the College of Nursing. by: Sonya K.

It ' s 7:50 and I ' ve got an 8:00 psychology class! I ' ll just throw on any old thing for my first class and then come back to the room and change later. I ' m gonna be late! I can ' t believe I ' m out in public dressed like this: my brother ' s old sweatpants that have got to be two sizes too big. what ' s left of my father ' s dress shirt-made-a-paint shirt, holey moccasins, no make- up at all. and my hair looks like a rat ' s nest. It ' s humiliating! I hope no one notices me. Climbing three flights of stairs is next to impossible this early in the morning! I ' m out of breath and panting and ... Oh no! My professor has already started lec- turing which means I ' ve got to walk in late looking like I do. Great! It would be a squeaky door to make the whole class turn and watch me try to slip nonchalantly into a seat. I just hope his lecture doesn ' t last all period. Back in the privacy of my room, so now I can make myself pre- sentable for my next class. I did finish my work for French, didn ' t I? I ' ll check and see when I finish my hair. Oh, it ' s already 11:00. No time to check my work — I ' ve got to get to class. That guy across the aisle is adorable! I wonder if he lifts weights or plays a sport? I wish he ' d notice me and ask me to the party Friday night. I could wear . . . What?! I ' m sorry, Madame , could you repeat the ques- tion one more time please? . . . I ' ve got to quit daydreaming and concentrate! I do wish he ' d ask me though . . . I don ' t have time for lunch to- day. I ' ve got to read my history assignment, so I ' ll just grab a Coke and some chips to eat later during class. Ugh! Why did I ever take history? I feel as if I ' ve been reading forever, but I don ' t re- member anything I ' ve read! I ' ve got to get moving or I ' ll be late. Whew! I made it to the lecture hall on time. Now, to eat my lunch. Darn! This bag of chips is so noisy! (CRACKLE, CRACKLE) I feel like the whole class is looking at me! Finally! I thought that bag would never open. The can of Coke shouldn ' t be too loud. (SPISH!) Oops! I guess I was wrong! Well, all the noise is over now, so everyone can face the teacher once again and stop look- ing at me. (CRUNCH, CRUNCH) Great! I would buy Doritos! I don ' t think I ' m gonna make it through this last class. I haven ' t stopped since this morning and I am worn out! I ' ll just concentrate on the professor and I ' ll be fine . . . whoops! He ' s going to think I ' m staring at him, but I ' m not. It ' s just that my eyes seem to get stuck on something and stay there. Okay, I ' ve got to stay awake. I ' ll just doodle and draw little pictures on my notes. That ought to keep me awake . . . Mmm . . . What?! Oh my! Is class over already? Where did the time go?! It seems like I just put my head down for a few minutes! Ah! My nice, confortable bed. I think I ' ll just watch some TV. and relax a while and then I ' ll get started on all of my homework. 11:00 P.M. already! When am I ever gonna do all this work?! Oh, what am I gonna do?! by Lynda McCutchen 165 fil££tf ■ . «a i MIMaMWW iii., MMI .

Before becoming Dean of Admissions he was em- ployed with the University as the Registrar — and we all deal with the registrar or the registrar ' s office (those dreadful drop cards) at some time or another. Dr. Gwaltney comments, " I don ' t do all of the work — there is a lot of traveling involved and interviewing in high schools. These people are the first exposure that some people have to the campus. They have done a good job over the years. " Nevertheless, admis- sions are continually increasing. When asked about the admissions criteria over the last few years, Dr. Gwaltney replies, " The minimal criteria has been the same for the last ten years. Some areas like Business, Computer Science, Engineering and Nursing have higher than minimal criteria re- quiring more math and science. " Tying in the fairly recent study on the whole education system (mainly high schools) not preparing the students in specific areas of English and Mathematics, and the changes in high school curriculum will not directly affect col- lege institutions until 1987-88 as far as the criteria for admissions. Over the last nine years the freshman class has increased. This year is the first year that we have a larger number of transfers. As far as UNCC having problems with the stability in growth, Dr. Gwaltney adds, " There has been good steady growth since 1977, a rate of 2% each year. " Where the number of graduates were decreasing in the years between 1977-81, the underclassmen now are picking up that slack. Dr. Gwaltney says, " We ' ve had a good healthy growth. We have grown enough and have been able to handle this in a way that eliminates class loads and students are not penalized. " As far as recruiting to UNCC, Dr. Gwaltney smiles, " We don ' t have to worry about our image any more. People are learning about UNCC by their friends and the variety of programs and diversity of offerings. They are beginning to know that we are not like other institutions. There are only two Architecture 168 programs in the state — UNCC having one and Engi- neering with only three in the state. We are also known for a strong Nursing and Business program. " The recruiting plans are to continue to expose UNCC to students through College day and Guidance Coun- selors. The talk of University Place as a recruiting aid will be positive. " This will bring UNCC ' s name more in the view of the public, therefore indicating to the public that this institution is involved in leading the community. It is unique for an institution and sup- porting people being involved in a venture like Uni- versity Place. The high school students and others will see that other things are going on on the campus that impact on instructional activity, " remarks Dr. Gwaltney. With the ideas of expanding previous buildings and the continual construction here on campus, we are experiencing the fastest growing school of the system. We are new in the system, being only fifteen to sixteen years old. Dr. Gwaltney concludes by saying, " I love the changing environment. The new buildings and the new faculty with a variety of degrees makes the com- plexion of the institution broader. Having variety makes the educational experience better. " By Sonya Wiley [I MBBTO DLAN OF STUDENTS Frank Joseph, a well-known name and face around campus, is acting Dean of Students this year. His ma- jor concerns are dealing with students on an individ- ual basis or in groups trying to facilitate thier devel- opment in college. Frank does this through several activites: (1) Orientation Minority Project Coordination Leadership Development Commuter Services Advise Student Judicial Systems Student Group Staff -Yearbook -Student Clubs and Organizations Advisor to Student Media Board Charlotte, being a large commuter area, makes the Dean of Students different from other deans. Frank realizes the needs of these commuting students and comments about the other reponsibilities besides go- ing to school. " These students must make better use of their time. A lot of time is being spent in their cars driving to and from school which averages out to two hours a day whereas the resident students are al- ready on campus with easy access to school facilities. Also, most of the commuters are working as well as maintaining marriages and families at home. Sixty percent of the students do not have time for anything other than class so this decreases the involvement of commuters in the extracurricular activities on cam- (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) DEAN OF STUDENTS pus. The change in the Alcohol policy and raising the drinking age to 19 will have a major effect on Frank ' s job as Dean of Students. Many of the social events and activities on campus deal with " free beverages for all who come out, " leading to an increased re- sponse from the students. Frank will have to deal with these matters and suggest different approaches to get students involved. The interaction between students and helping students adjust, being the main concern for the Dean of Students, needs escalating with other tempting motivators. Frank summarizes his job as " responding to stu- dents when they don ' t know where else to go! " He always inspires the concern for others and he is al- ways anxious to help students in any way. Frank can always be seen around campus with different groups of people and you know when you see the tall, crazy man with blonde hair coming upon you — when you look at his radiant face, there will always be a friend- ly smile to greet you. Dean of Students is a very important job because adjusting to school is a very important factor to the continual growth of our campus. Students need a warm, friendly man that they can count on and feel comfortable around — so who else besides Mr. Frank Joseph? by Sonya Wiley .

UNCC ' S UNBELIEVABLE HORROR STORIES There have been some exciting things happening in the science departments this year. In fact, it ' s al- most . . . scarey . . . Thunder crashed threateningly as she ran desper- ately through the pouring rain towards the shelter of the greenhouse. One huge pull on the handle of the door granted her entry into the warmth of the glass building. Resting a moment to let her eyes become accustomed to the dark, the sharp damp and musty air filled her senses and made her feel slightly sick. She wandered through the tables filled with plants of all varieties, shapes and sizes and finally leaned against a huge, dark table at the back of the house. Suddenly, she felt a movement around her waist; a slithering, snakey sensation that twisted itself around her and began to squeeze. Before she could move to run or scream, more " arms " reached out to encircle her and just before she lost consciousness, she realized that the " arms " that held her were in fact the " arms " of the plant that lives. This, of course, is just a story, but there is a resem- blance to something here at UNCC — a greenhouse. UNCC ' s new addition to the horticulture department was started March 28, 1983, and completed on Au- gust 28, 1983, but the planning goes back five years. The old greenhouse, built in 1970, was donated by Dr. and Mrs. Thomas McMillan to house an orchid collection and was rarely used by horticulture classes. In 1976, Dr. Thomas Lawrence Mellichamp began teaching horticulture here and used the green- house as part of his class. Unfortunately, the green- house reached its capacity, so a newer, larger model was needed. Mellichamp personally began planning the new greenhouse in 1979 and in 1980 official plan- ning started with donations from Dr. and Mrs. McMillan. Now, the completed $400,000 greenhouse stands behind the McEniry Building. It is " U-shaped " with two long wings of three sections each and a two- classroom building at the end. One wing is now being used for classroom work and experiments and the other will be used for public display of plants. It is, as Dr. Mellichamp states, exactly what was wanted. " I am very pleased (with the greenhouse). It ' s per- fect! We built knowing what we wanted and we were involved in the planning. I can ' t wait for it to be opened. " Although the classroom wing is open for use by the horticulture and botany classes, the public wing will not be ready until the spring of 1984. Mellichamp hopes that the public wing will resemble a botanical garden so that people can wander among the plants fr S J and see what the classes are doing. According to Dr. Melichamp, the greenhouse is the best thing that ' s happened to the horticulture depart- ment in a long time and he is satisfied with the result. " My main interest has been the greenhouse since I ' ve been here, and it has fulfilled a lot of my dreams. I can do the things I want to do, that is, teaching classes, and having a place for the public to come. It ' s one of the best greenhouses of its kind in the south. It ' s perfect! " Although the beginning story is purely fictional, just to be safe, don ' t go wandering in the goeenhouse alone on dark, stormy nights. You just might find the plant that lives! Now for story number 2 ... A second exciting and almost scarey happening occurs in the biology de- partment . . . He ' d been waiting for a long time and now he was completely lost. He knew he shouldn ' t be out in the woods on such a dark, cold night, but he couldn ' t seem to find his way out. Exhausted, he sat down against a large pine tree and closed his eyes. Almost immediately, he opened them again, knowing that someone was watching him. As he looked around, he could see many pairs of eyes staring at him coldly, or was it only his imagination? When the eyes came at him suddenly with a rush of wings, he knew then that it was real. Once again, the story is fictional, but the birds in it are very real. They are called raptors. The word " rap- 17? tor " is derived from the Latin word " rapture " mean- ing to seize or snatch. Nowadays, raptor is used to mean any bird of prey which uses its talons to seize or snatch its food. These birds are studied and cared for at the Carolina Raptor Center in the basement of the McEniry Building. The Center, although affiliated with the biology department, is not a part of UNCC. It is an indepen- dent organization that concentrates on helping birds of prey. The Center ' s five main goals are: 1) rehabili- tation of injured birds of prey; 2) research of birds of prey; 3) education of the public; 4) reproduction of endangered species; and 5) conservation of birds in their natural habitat. Although there are seven re- gional centers of the National Raptor Rehabilitation Association, the Carolina Raptor Center is the only one that works to obtain all the goals. According to graduate volunteer, Joey Cochran, there is nothing else like it in the United States. The Center was started quite unexpectedly by Dr. R ichard Brown and Debra Sue Griffeth. At dinner one night with a group of students, they began writ- ing ideas of a special bird center on a napkin and from there it grew. A group of biology students, graduates, and those training in the biology field be- gan working to organize this new center in 1980 and soon began taking in injured birds and getting actual hands-on experience. Explains Cochran, " Theories don ' t work when you ' re actually working with birds. You get more practical experience being trained by someone who ' s done actual work with birds. Hands-on training is the best way to learn. " The Center continued to thrive on birds that were brought in by rangers and other people and the split from the University was made. The Center is now preparing to move to a new location at Reedy Creek Park where it will have more room to expand. The plan includes a public museum, classroom space for programs, rehab and research facilities, and possible acreage for natural habitation. The move is sched- uled for 1984. Until then, the Center, headed by Dr. Brown and rehab-coordinator Sue White, is focusing on the edu- cation of the public and rehabilitation of the birds. In the words of Cochran. " The program is really coming along. We ' ve had good success with the birds and we ' re working on a permanent facility. We ' ve (the Carolina Raptor Center) come a long way. but we ' re in the process of becoming something big. " So, there it is, UNCC ' s scarey, horror stories. Unbe- lievable, right!? by Lynda McCutchen 173 CAMPUS POLICE - SECURITY PLUS . . . Who are those mysterious men and women dressed in blue seen around campus at the worst times? They are officially known as our Campus Police Officers. Many students feel that these men and women are merely a security force used by the University and have no real authority. Their loyalty is perceived to be to a municipality rather than to the University. There seems to be a widespread lack of respect for rules and regulations on campus. Many students and staff members feel that it is a waste of time to report incidents to the Campus Police. Past experiences have led the students to view the response of the Campus Police as inadequate and incompetent; therefore, many crimes are never reported. Contrary to the widespread lack of respect and delayed re- sponse, our Campus Police must go through the same training as other Police Officers of the state, as well as meet specific standards set by the University. Campus Police Officers of UNCC must complete a minimum of 440 hours basic law enforcement train- ing session at Gaston College, Dallas, North Carolina. They go through the training course with Gastonia City Police Department, Gaston City Police Depart- ment and Gaston and Lincoln County Police Depart- ments. In addition to basic training, the UNCC Police Officers must go through a psychological examina- tion at the counseling center here at UNCC. The dif- ference is the Campus Police jurisdiction is limited to property owned by the University; however, they can pursue anywhere in the state of North Carolina if a misdemeanor or felony occurs in their presence. In addition to roles of policemen in the metropoli- tan areas of keeping peace and apprehending sub- jects, our campus police are directly involved in ser- vice functions such as: assistance to automobiles, as- sistance to people who are locked out of their rooms, transport money from one place to another, crowd control (especially concerning special events where schedules must be rearranged to ensure the activities can operate on time), traffic control, talking to stu- dent groups to help them understand different rules and regulations and evacuation of buildings in case of emergencies. According to Jerry Hudson, Director of Public Safety, " Any crime can be committed on campus just as in big cities. Theft rate is high, fights, drug use and crimes against the University are among the common occurences on campus. " Along with insuring safety, the Campus Police must perform their job to the best of their abilities to keep a positive perception by the community they serve. " A respect for conduct within the law becomes a part of the learning experience the Institution strives to present, " comments Hudson. " I get a num- ber of good officer candidates from the Criminal Jus- tice program and most of my dispatcher and ticket writers are also enrolled as students. They frequent- ly serve as missionaries to the community. This too helps community understanding. " The campus law enforcement goals are the provi- sion of a safe secure and attractive environment. Similar to our municipal colleagues in blue, each departments effectiveness, is, however, largely de- pendent upon the assistance and cooperation of the (University) community " , concludes Hudson. " A quote from the then President of Kent State, which appears on the face of our application for member- ship describes the objective of the police officers: ' I was fortunate ... to find a team which embodies the attributes most necessary to maintenance of an or- derly campus. I found ... a security program which was part of the solution, not part of the problem! ' " Our Campus Police are quite dependable as well as very well qualified to secure our campus. They are much more than " play cops " and take pride in their jobs. The prevailing lack of respect should be allevi- taed through cooperation and faith in our Campus Police Officers. by Sonya K.

He wanted a fast, smart- plaving ballteam. Wissel stressed the importance of working on the fundamentals and was assured that strong teamwork would follow. After adjusting to this type of play — ideas were generated and a marketing campaign was announced by the UNCC Athletic Depart- ment at a press conference in the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. The campaign began as a small concept by Shotwell and Partners ' Jack Dillard. Foundation and Promotions Director Dave Taylor an- nounced the kickoff of " HUSTLEBALL " at the conference. Hustle- Ball is defined as " all-out, wide-open, full-tilt basketball. " Area marketing professionals assisted in implementing the campaign to show their spirit of community involvement to insure success in UNCC basketball. UNCC ' s HUSTLEBALL is not just a collective effort orchestrated by and pulled together by Taylor, it is an ever-expanding 18-point plan, the most extensive marketing project in UNCC athletic de- partment history. Television commercials, radio commercials (featuring the Hust- leBall jingle), newspaper advertisements (with the HustleBall logo), a painted rotary billboard, and city bus inside-wall placards will be the tactics used to get Charlotteans and surrounding areas into the fiery campaign. T-shirts, bumper stickers, buttons, and schedule cards will be used to attract students as well as area youth. " We want to put life into college basketball in Charlotte " said court boss Hall Wissel. " " This is UNCC country. " The HustleBall idea is an all-out effort from all of the players. Diving for loose balls, fast-breaking and running full speed through- out the whole game. As the inexperienced players learn the style of play — in the years to come — UNCC ' s basketball program will gain much needed support that will boost their moral and improve their play. Get into the spirit of 49 ' er country and support the athletics here at, YOUR school. Afterall, the campaign is for your school. — Sonya Wiley (reproduced from UNCC alumni magazine) Hill 177 I II « mMm aM . !MMnmwM mCTammM 4, MWB ■H IIHHII j||K | ■■I life : Mil ■■I IIIIIIII HBLT ' Bill ■■l IIHHII HlKi ' ' ■■ IIIHHI IHHKfei.

You see, this series of photographs is comprised of subjects that fulfill our spare time; and even some of our not so spare time. In this section you will see things that you daydream of or do in those rare times when you can ' t pay attention to that afternoon lecture or even those things that occupy your out of class time on campus. It is our hope that some of these photos will spark a happy memory of your campus time at UNCC; because we feel that it is the small things, that we take in at a glance, that a lot of times help broaden our scope. by Hank Foreman Above: Students relish the chance to discuss and explain themselves dur- ing that special between class breaks Below: Students uses spare time to relax Opposite: Sanskrit, the literary arts magazine, is a useful way to spend spare time. 254 " «■■■ ' " » ' " ' - — 255 ■nanmnHnmHHmmmm HHHIl v. 4 1 256 uamniMM TO THE CLASS OF 1984 BEST WISHES THE PROSPECTOR! i ' tiiUfth fr " - " " - " " " - " ' " -■« " " " ' " 111 nun in [■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■a ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■ Mimmmr " " " " ™™ !■■■■■■■■■■■■! ■■■■■■■■I ■■■■■■■■■■I minis " iiiiiinir 1 ■■■■■ HI b::::::»iii ss:::h::::h lie ,% ffliaiBHHUKaaiasianusziHm uBSHi MMBiaBi OVERVIEW A good number of UNCC students, when asked the question. " What ' s there to do in Charlotte? " , answer with an " I don ' t know " or a " Nothin ' . " This is mainly because Charlotte has so much to offer, a student ' s image of the Queen City gets blurred. Charlotte is dotted with great restaurants, bars, and general night spots. And shopping, you have the downtown area businesses, as well as major malls and shopping cen- ters. But, off the entertainment side, our city is home to many major companies, banks, and small businesses. This creates an advantage for those students seeking employment during school years and upon their graduation. So. as anyone can see, Charlotte is packed with drawing agents for inter-state com- merce. And a third and final component of our Charlotte overview is, of course, UNCC. The University, al- though an annexed part of the city, is about two miles outside the Charlotte city limits. This fact has caused a wave of rash acts and on campus violence from students who feel that our campus should be consid- ered UNCN. The University of North Carolina at Newell. But seriously, the distance from campus to the not so nearby businesses does pose some problems for our on campus residents that do not own cars. This problem will, in the years to come, be eliminated by the University City project. This proposed communi- ty will further integrate the University with Char- lotte making it an even larger component of the over- all view of the city. by Hank Foreman |E3! URE Ctvia Because of the immense size of the Queen City, students should have no trouble finding things to do in their spare time. There are countless restaurants and pubs to afford a comfortable evening. One could even go bar-hopping as the newly formed Kangaroo Club does on their little outings. Charlotte also has a wide selection of dramatic pro- ductions and varieties of musical performances. A large number of these activities take place in cultural hot spots like Spirit Square, and Charlotte Little The- atre. The newest attraction in the downtown area is Discovery Place, a wonderful hands on museum. With such additions as this, the downtown Charlotte area is sure to increase its traffic flow steadily. Also adding to the cultural aspect of our city is the campus. UNCC is becoming more and more integrat- ed with the city everyday, therefore adding a number of cultural aspects to Charlotte. It can be said that the culture is best described as a compilation of different cultures and industrial sec- tors. And with the growing industrial and cultural sectors, Charlotte is sure to only better its array of offerings. by Hank Foreman Top: Freedom Park offers Charlotleans another entertainment option.

A twelve year project is underway to make UNCC one of the most unique Universities in the world. In January of 1983 David Carley of Carley Capital Group pur- chased the property from UNCC to develop the land in the way UNCC officials were planning. University City will cover twenty square miles including the cam- pus. A Town Center will be in- cluded in University City com- posed of " a diversity of compo- nents, " comments Dr. D. Orr, Vice Chancellor of Research and Pub- lic Service. " The proposed Town Center will include a hotel and conference center, a variety of re- tail shops, offices, housing (multi- family, townhouses, and condo- miniums), an entertainment complex with a movie theatre and performing arts theatre, and a variety of public services will also be provided. A branch li- brary, Post Office, and also a Com- munity Fire and Police Depart- Opposile Top: The University Memori- al Hospital, underway at this time, will be a great asset to the University, espe- cially to the College Of Nursing.

Development around the lake will include a va- riety of walking paths, benches, and eating places to incur a sense of unity. " University City is a very unique opportunity for an urban University. " This is the only case we know of with a University in- volving itself with a new town de- velopment, " smiles Dr. Orr. Dr. Orr and Dr. Clay, of the Universi- ty, implemented the planning process and included students and faculty to help with different perspectives of the plan.

But for fear of leaving out some very important names, I would just like to say " thanks. " We started with something so important to the human process, a dream. A dream of what could be, and we gave it our best shot. I hope that you, the students, feel better about yourselves and your university, after you have finished reading The Book. It was for this reason that we strived to produce a great annual. For we realized that UNCC and you are great; you deserve it. Even though the late, late nights and ear- ly mornings took their toll, I kept in mind the day when you would be reading this and I thought, " It is worth it. " I hope that you have similar feelings about The Pro- spector. I would like to close this note just as I began, with a simple " Thank you.
