The air is filled with an aura of royalness and the unearthly silence makes the desert wind solemn in its crossing of the temples. A king has died. His country mourns and wails on the journey to the tomb. Their hands are overrunning with the wealth of a marvelous civilization. Their master must have all he needs for the afterlife. Jugs, jewelry; all the things he used during his life. At last the tomb is filled, and sealed, the master is prepared for the journey to an afterlife. It is early morning, and the warm sun begins to peek over the dark shapes of the re- sidence halls. In the air is a certain quiet that won ' t he for much longer. A tenseness is about the silence and the dark halls echo that silence. There is an 8 o ' clock exam A student pours over notes and books Their mind is overrunning with the jumbled ideas of the class. They must learn this, not only to pass the test, but to get a job. Math, writing skills, all the things they are working so hard to understand. At last the exam is passed and they understand, graduation is near; journey to an afterlife. •■ " - " ■ m 2 © ? © of L This volume of The Prospector is dedicated to all of the things, here at UNCC, that prepare us for life after college. These things may be as important as world events or as important as sitting by the lake and watching the ducks. For all of these things are precious details that make us what we are when we leave here and go into the world that we have so arduously been preparing ourselves for. There is a philosophy that the journey is what is important and not that you get there. In this situation it is relatively easy to see that this idea may not be so far off; our being in the midst of of- probably one of our greatest journeys ever in life. In the years to come, what we learn here will be the basis of how we think, how we learn in the rest of our lives, and how we teach during the rest of our lives. This place, this university and these people become a deciding factor in our journey of life after college. And each of us contributes to the shaping of the other students around us and then the people who surround us in the afterlife. We hope that The Prospector helps remind you of the people and the place that helped you pick up all that you need for your afterlife and that your journeys never end. STUDENT LIFE I " Fashion " It is solidly known that popular fashion reflects what is going on in the world of pop music and films. And this year seems to belong to our favorite music stars; well, maybe they aren ' t your favorite song stylists, but they have set the fashion of the street on a new path. Not since the heyday of the Annie Hall look has the media affected our everyday wearing apparel. Here are just four of the names, and looks, that are first on my list of avant-garde trend setters: Boy George, Annie Lennox, Cyndi Lauper, and, of course, Michael Jackson. Each of these stars have a wealth of talent and have spent a great deal of time developing themselves and their art. And yes, the clothes they sport are a large part of that development. First, let ' s consider Boy George, the lead singer of the hit-producing Culture Club. Because of his highly developed attitude toward himself and the world around him, he naturally found that he wasn ' t your average dresser. And lucky for us, because of him, we now have a new and comfortable " smock " style hitting the fashion market. And, let ' s not forget the hat, the long left out accessory. Both men and women are now sporting Boy George millinery styles. But the less controversial, so more popular, item, bright tennis shoes, has been the biggest hit with the youth of the world. From the high-top tennis shoe, sporting a totally new red paint job, to the real thing, " platform " tennis, they are stronger than ever. But this " look " is not the only style sensation to sweep today ' s culture. The second fashion craze is women ' s clothing derived from con- servative men ' s apparel. Annie Lennox, of the Eurhythmies, is the main influencing force to the followers of this cross-over fashion. It is growing increasingly difficult to find a gathering of women ' s fashions that doesn ' t 16 JL include a design based upon the neighborhood banker ' s closet. The look is smooth and yet carries great strength for the wearer and can be intensified by adding just a touch of fluorescent orange coloring to the hair. But seriously, with the same impact and greatly needed freshness, Annie Lennox has brightened up the fashion scene just as she has the music industry. One of the music industry ' s fastest growing stars, Cyndi Lauper, has brought another twist to fashion. Sporting a " let ' s see what ' s in grand- ma ' s old trunk " look, Cyndi has helped turn today ' s fashion conscious dresser back to designs of yesteryear. The biggest impact of this new old look has been in jewelry. Today ' s jewelry box is impoverished if it doesn ' t contain one of granny ' s dear, clear crystalline set of earbobs and hopefully a matching brooch. But this, nor either of the preceding, is the hottest look or sound as far as fashion and music industry goes. The award for season saving fashion and music industry saving sound goes to none other than Michael Jackson. Just the mention of that name stirs up images of zippered jackets, parachute pants, and glitter gloves adorning hordes of young people all trying to walk backward just like Michael. But believe it or not, Mr. Jackson has even stirred up the ever stagnant belt industry. A store ' s belt tree is bare if it doesn ' t contain one of those slim, black, silver-studded waist- wrappers that the young super star sports. It ' s useless to try and name everything that is stamped with the Michael Jackson name or image, so let ' s just agree that it ' s clear, the Jackson look is a " victory " for the fashion world. One can only wait to see if, as the winter season approaches, Michael Jackson glitter mittens hit the streets of high fashion.

But in the end it was Reagan carrying 49 states and the election. BUSH Vice President George Bush rode high and courageous on the public image of Ronald Reagan during this election. His words praised the present administra- tion and promised a brighter and stronger future for America during the next four Reagan years. The height of Bush ' s exposure was his debate with candidate Ferraro, in which his estatic support of the Reagan administration made his perfor- mance work. 22 HI MONDALE Walter Mondale fought long and hard against the president but it was all uphill and the further the Democrats climbed the higher the hill got. Mondale ' s main assurance of remembrance in election ' 84 will be his choice of running mate, Geraldine Ferraro: a big step for politics in recent years. FERRARO The selection of Geraldine Ferraro as Walter Mondale ' s running mate will have to go down as the most exciting thing to happen in this election. Ferraro made quite an impression on most Americans and she, like Bush, gave strong support to her running mate. 23 ttw tfm DR. FRANK C. BARNES, COL OF BUSINESS Perhaps learning and building are what we, as students and faculty, perceive as Dr. Frank Barnes ' major contribution to this University. The two attributes, learning and building are enhanced by his hobby of collecting antiques and restoring them. This promotes learning history through reading and travel, adding diversity, as well as culture, to his teaching style. Frank further explains, " An analysis of the past or an understanding of the past is one of the best ways to figure out what ' s going on in the present. " Dr. Barnes ' academic specialty, production management, is very closely related to his hobbies. " In production management you have to figure out what ' s reality, what ' s going on, so that some tasks can be done better, or accomplished. This is something I do 16 hours a day, 365 days a year, " continues Barnes, who is well-known for viewing all aspects of life as a system — and always suggesting or searching for a " better way! " Dr. Barnes received his Industrial Engineering degree from Georgia Tech in 1960. Over the next ten years he worked for 4 national corporations and a major consulting firm, earning a master ' s degree in management at night school. He then entered a Ph. D. program and began his career of teaching. " I think I personally belong and am happy at a univ ersity because I am strongly driven to learn and because I am an idealist who believes the human race is going somewhere. ' Startrek ' was a show which assumed the human race would get some place better. Technology has made the world better and it should continue to do so, if we don ' t ' waffle ' and decline. " The University ' s task is to prepare students to go somewhere in life and seek the higher ideals. " Last year we established the Small Business Institute, a cooperative project with the Small 24 Business Administration, at UNCC to provide consulting to help local small businesses and learning opportunities to students. Small business and entrepreneurship are exciting areas; with hard work there is a real opportunity for a person to become successful and independent. I believe that the opportunities for entrepreneurship are greater today than they ' ve ever been. People must simply prepare themselves and try. " Through his years at UNCC, Dr. Barnes has added much to the growing University, both administratively and academically. His objectives are to prepare students to develop open minds so that much can be achieved after graduating and UNCC students contribute their expertise in related fields. " UNCC is the fourth largest university in the system and I believe the College of Business is already the second best in the system. If our students don ' t lose their commit- ment while at school and afterwards, I believe that within 20 years UNCC ' s College of Business will be considered by most people to be the best in the state. " Dr. Barnes ' unique personality and interests build character not only in the classroom, but to those who carry his zeal for understanding life by learning on with them in their future endeavors. — Sonya Wiley L-j DR. JOHN LINCOURT, DEPT. OF PHILOSOPHY Philosophy — immediately bringing to mind Socrates and an older generation of language that seemed to be spoken in riddles. An atmosphere of intense thinking and deep soul searching to find the inner self of thy self. The truth is that " philosophy can help you in a very meaningful way in your life, " suggests Dr. Lincourt. " Philosophy is problem-solving. You must pay careful attention to details before you can act. Many solutions are one-sided — you throw objectives to them and you analyze reasoning for that solution. Problem solving is like peeling an onion — you peel one layer at a time. " Students are taught methodology in philo- sophy where they address a problem. This methodology changes people to be more tolerant of other views, thus evaluating among alternative choices to choose that which is better for the whole. " These people become more confident in their actions. They have learned the essence of patience and tolerance and the importance of thinking through a situation before acting. " This can be applied to every day life. Dr. Lincourt was born in Maine, one of seven children. His family was a " medical family " ; four nurses were in his family and his father was a physician. He went to school in New England and received his degree in Philosophy from New York State. He moved to Charlotte in 1973. When he first came to UNCC in 1973, the department was very small (the school had approximately 4,000 students), but possessed good students: writers, thinkers and question-askers. The turnover of faculty has been nominal, five of the seven professors have been with the University for ten years, creating a " family " of philosophers. In 1981 Dr. Lincourt had a turning point in his career. He became involved with the medical community in Charlotte (this always has been an interest of his). He began work at the Family Practice Center at Charlotte Memorial. " There is a difference between studying philosophy and doing it. Working at Family Practice adds much credibility to teaching in that actual cases can be presented (names, of course, are not mentioned) and students can work through with contradiction and frustrations and provide feedback. " This incorporates the " real world " setting into his classroom and again, using the basics of philosophy to solve problems. Through his work at Family Practice, Dr. Lincourt has worked into Hospitals and Medical Associations and delivered 130 to 140 presenta- tions in local, regional and the South Carolina area. These studies have sparked a side interest — older people — in which he has taught this group " Philosophy for Old Americans. " The only criteria for this class is that you had to be 55 years old. The topics of this class were issues they, as an older generation, were dealing with: dying, God, friendship, justice and law. Dr. Lincourt believes the " frontier in medicine will be the study of Geriatrics (old people). " Old people are interest- ing. " He remembers a pillow he once saw of an elderly lady in a wheel chair, " Growing old isn ' t for sissy ' s. " Dr. Lincourt inspires his students in ways that can be utilized throughout their lives. The knowledge learned from him is applied in other aspects of their lives and allows them to be more confident in their thoughts and actions. He dedicates his class time to the students with enthusiasm and continues to push students to excel in subconscious ways. Dedication and sincerity to the students and community are attributes that will not be forgotten. Dr. Lincourt, you ' re the inspiration!!! — Sonya Wiley DR. JOHN HEALEY, DIRECTOR OF PERCEPTUAL MOTOR THERAPY An interest of motor development in children developed into a Perceptual Motor Development Program at UNCC in 1975 under the direction of Dr. John H. Healey. The program initially had an enrollment of 12 students and two children. Now, the cut-off is 30 children and a waiting list of one year. Dr. Healey says Perceptual Motor is a " collective program in that no one person ' s theory is followed. " The information has been developed by Dr. Healey as well as activities to correct and facilitate improvement of these activities. The lab is filled with manuals that demonstrate to students how to aid in overcoming gross motor problems in children to move toward improving fine motor skills. A key to the success of the program is both a learning experience for students as well as children. A class interrelates with the lab time in that students teach their peers; thus enabling them to teach their children — quite a unique teaching style used by Dr. Healey. Another unique characteristic of Dr. Healey is his genuine concern toward his students and the cohesiveness he creates throughout the entire program. Interaction between parents, students and children push toward a group effort of helping children develop a confidence in themselves in " playground " activities that proceeds through and tends to improve produc- tivity in their schoolwork. Note, however, that this is not a schoolroom setting, but a direct approach to improve those problems in movement and coordination that downgrade performance at their respective school levels. The program varies from children with Down ' s Syndrome, minimal brain dysfunction to those with a bright IQ who are disgraphic (can ' t coordinate body movement with brain messages). Instances of cases are one of a child, with Down ' s Syndrome, who could barely walk to a point where walk is upright and gross motor skills improved drastically. " The youngest child in the program was two years old. Our students taught this child how to walk where previous attempts did not produce results — was one of the most recent cases. " Dr. Healey " graduates " students from the program " when motor skills and motor development is at a skill (noun) appropriate for their age. " Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the success of the program is that parents have heard primarily through word-of-mouth advertising. These are through parents, psychologic profes- sionals, teachers and Charlotte agencies. Dr. Healey received his undergraduate degree at California State University — Northridge. He received his post-doctoral degree at UCLA, concentrating in the motor development in children. Dr. Healey, our deepest appreciation goes to you in helping our children grow into a more confident tomorrow. — Sonya Wiley 26 J. MARK COLONE - SPORTS INFO. DIRECTOR In July of 1983, UNCC director of athletics Clyde Walker named Mark Colone the University ' s first-ever assistant sports information director. In September of that same year, Colone became UNCC ' s interim sports information director. And, on March 1, 1984, Colone then 23, became the youngest sports director at an NCAA Division I institution. He is a May ' 83 graduate of UNCC ' s College of Business Administration. A native of Oneonta, NY, Colone earned a B.A. degree in UNCC ' s College of Business after serving four years as a student assistant in the 49er sports information office. For the 2979 Oneonta High School graduate, this position allows him the opportunity to establish a career in the area of his lifelong love - sports. The love of sports and UNCC has led several outstanding athletes and an outstanding student from Oneonta, NY to Charlotte. Pitcher Roger Carey for the 1982 Baseball season; Tony Rossi to become two-time assist leader (13) for the 49er soccer team in 1981 and ' 82 seasons; Soccer stars Eddie Criesmer from Oneonta and John Griffith from nearby Endwell, NY; another Mike Betts graduated in December with a 3.75 average and a B.S. in Economics. Colone ' s background of experience covers the spectrum of sports information work, including writing; editing; layout and design; statistic and record keeping; brochure production; photography; and working with sports media representatives as the athletic department ' s press liaison. Colone did all the above for UNCC ' s non-revenue producing sports as a student and formally assumed those responsibilities along with men ' s basketball beginning with the school year, 1983-84. A member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSISA), Colone has been honored for aiding in the production of numerous district and national publication awards from that organization, including a " best in the nation " award to UNCC basketball game program of 1980-81 and the " second in the nation " (1982) and a " third in the nation " (1981) for his women ' s basketball media guides. Colone ' s 1983 soccer press guide was selected " third in the nation " in Division A. He is currently a member of the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). Prior to his graduation, Colone also served as sports editor of UNCC ' s campus newspaper, THE 49ER TIMES (1982-83), worked two years as a play-by-play statistician for the American Soccer League ' s Carolina Lightin ' , and still serves as a publicist for the National Soccer Hall of Fame (Oneonta, NY). Mark is a very ambitious and sincere person, two qualities usually not found in one individual. He is always " willing " to help and goes to extremes to satisfy all of those in contact with him. In essence, a TRIBUTE to Mark Colone for all of his fine attributes that has allowed the sports program to develop and to be recognized by other universities and in aiding UNCC in any way he possibly can. A special thanks to you always for the many years of cooperation. — Sonya Wiley liiitumwinn ilWBMM|j 27 DISCOVERY OF THE CENTURY Charlotte, N.C. - The North Carolina on the were in use by the University of North Car- " dig maps " of the world. students around the year olina at Charlotte was the A large black stone, ins- 1984 A.D.: greatest dig center of major ar- cribed with language since the Palm Spring site, chaeological discovery translations of several 2777. this week, which placed popular words, which UNIVERSITY REACTION TO THE DISCOVERY 28 I Ci-iiL. l_ our JL p e OUT HL foR SuRr 3£ n ' m eRiou jC OVER. eAT HL rnA E % ZL A6REET 29 1 30 HOMECOMING 1984 Homecoming 1984 fol- lowed in the tradition of previous years.

" ver the past decade, the field of sports medicine has greatly expanded. Specific professions within this unique dis- cipline include: medical doctors, physical ther- apists, sport psychologists, physiologists, nutri- tionists, and athletic trainers. Most athletes receive their first medical ad- vice on the proper care and prevention of sport related injuries from an athletic trainer. The UNCC athletic department currently has a very fine and solid staff of qualified athletic trainers. Dr. Kenneth E. Wright is the head athletic trainer at UNCC and also a professor of athletic training in the University ' s health and physical education department. Being a NATA certified athletic trainer, Wright, a native of Vevay, IN, has worked in fine athletic programs since graduating from Eastern Kentucky (1974). am- ong them, the U.S. Olympic Committee, Syr- acuse University. Ohio University, Morehead State. Kent State, and his alma matre. Dr. Wright came to UNCC to upgrade the overall trainers and sports medicine program in the summer of 1981. William Nolte Jr.. joined the UNCC staff in August of 1982 serving as a graduate assistant for two years. This past summer. Nolte, a native of Elkton. TN. was appointed to the University ' s newly created position of sports medicine clinic coordinator. A graduate of Middle Tennessee State (B.S. Health Education, 1983) and MHDL h health education) UNCC graduate (1984). No- lte is responsible for administering and coordi- nating all activities within the clinic. He is heav- ily involved in the duties of prescribed treatment and rehabilitation of the entire UNCC student body. The newest addition to the athletic training staff is Ray Davies. who has been appointed as the University ' s graduate assistant trainer working in unison with Dt. Wright to coordinate the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries to UNCC ' s many student-athletes. As a graduate of Western Carolina (1984). Davies will be in charge of student trainer coverage among UNCC ' s 12-sport athletic program as well as serving as a part-time instructor for the department of health and physical education. Davies, 22, is a native of Greensboro. NC. The strength of the UNCC athletic training staff is in the student athletic training program, which is a very fine backbone of UNCC. These unique individuals not only provide basic first aid and treatment and administration of re- habilitation exercises to UNCC ' s student- athletes, but must complete strict academic and practical requirements prior to graduation. Over the past three years, since Dr. Wright has headed the University ' s program, members of this staff have received national awards for excellence in this field. Some have gone on to careers in this profession. The 1984-85 athletic training staff in- cludes: Tom Burns (Cincinnati. OH). Bruce Baker (Dillsboro. IN). Kim Cullingford (Charlotte. NC). Pat Riley (Goldsboro. NC). Pam Dunnells (Charlotte. NC). Bobby Smith (Greensboro. NC). Lanry Carpenter (Gastonia. NC). and Joey Hawkins (Forest City. NC). An added dimension to this staff is a student assistant strength and conditioning coach. Greg Forest, son of 49er basketball play-b y- play announcer Jim Forest, has assumed the responsibilities of assisting UNCC ' s athletes in developing strength and stamina for thier re- spective sport through weight training, a vital area in sports medicine. The communication between an athletic trainer and physician is critical in returning the athlete to competition. Providing sound advice and medical expertise from the UNCC Brocker Health Clinic are: Dr. Don Nelson, Dr. Olav Niilend, Dr. Marilyn Caldwell, and Dr. Chris Martinez. When an injury requires orthopedic consultation. Dr. David Johnston and fellow associates from the Miller Clinic of Charlotte are called upon. With the combination of an excellent staff, a modern sports medicine facility and enthusi- astic physicans. the overall conclusion is real- tively simple to surmise-UNCC ' s student- athletes are provided with outstanding care.

Hall had senior captain Dave Marsukis (Toms River, NJ) and 1983 MVP and sophomore Todd Thompson (Camp Lejeune, NC) returning along with junior Dave Peterson (Raleigh, NC), but he lost standout freshman Tony Adair (Forest City, NC) to an " illness " called " homesickness. " Hall then worked with a trio in combination with 1983 ' s most im- proved runner Steve McCachren (Mt. Airy, NC) and molded a strong squad, but one that lacks depth. Hall brought in freshman Dave McElrath (Candler, NC) and red-shirt sophomore Kurt Barkley (Taylorsville, NC) returned joining Brevard transfer Stuart Noell (Mayoden, NC) to give UNCC a nucleus of seven runners. " Dave Marsukis gave the young squad great leadership and a consistent race day in and day out, " said Hall, praising his lone senior. Dave was the first runner in the program to earn all-Sun Belt honors and all of the runners ran their season ' s best. Todd Thompson finished with the squad ' s second best time in six regular season races and owned UNCC ' s best time in the 36th annual 8K state championship with a finish of 26:17 (final record for cross country (55-29). 42 49ER GOLF PROFILES BEAU BROWN 6-0 ... 180 .. . senior business i administration Charlotte, NC Beau finished in the .

After going winless the first year, then head coach Terry Warner turned the program into a respectable competitor. The 49ers finished with an even 6-6 record. Now, first year coach Steve Billings has 27 men and women competing this year. UNCC will not field a women ' s team this year, so the 11 women on this year ' s squad will be competing right along side the men. " We have a large team this year, " Billings said. " In fact, this team is larger than either of the two teams prior to this year, " he continued. As is the case with any large team, there is bound to be youth and inexperience. And, Billings will be the first to admit that his team is no different. Of the 27 members on the team, there are nine freshmen and ten sophomores. " We do have some inexperience, " stated Billings. " But, I hope their enthusiasm will make up for it in the long run. " Leading the small group of returnees is sophomore diver John McKinney. The Charlotte native dove five times last year and won each of those challenges. The 6-1 McKinney had his best performance versus Georgia State when he finished with a score of 215.35 in the 1-meter competition. He will also compete in the free style and the back stroke events. Also back from last year ' s team is co-captain Chris Washburn. Although he will not be eligible until January, Billings is expecting a lot from the junior from Shelby, NC. Washburn, who competes in the free style and back stroke events, finished first ten times last year while competing in 20 races. The 49ers also return Nancy Hunt, the other co-captain along with Washburn, who swam for the Lady 49ers a year ago. Hunt had ten first-place finishes in 18 races while competing in the free style and back stroke. t ' r. h Itf T ■ - --•- - " in . t 44 Swimming Billings also has Greg and Glenn Pysher back from the 1983-84 team. Both compete in the free style, but Greg includes the back stroke in his repertoire while Glenn includes the breast stroke among his bag of tricks. Glenn had UNCC ' s best performance a year ago in the 50-meter breast stroke with a 27.34 clocking against Pfeiffer. " At this stage of the program, I ' d say we have a very competitive schedule, " commented Billings. " We ' re nowhere near the class of a Tennessee, Texas, or Florida, but I feel we are swimming against our level of competition at this point. " The 49ers open the season at home against the College of Charleston on November 2. UNCC will swim in the Mine Shaft pool three times while going on the road a total of nine times. Billings is optimistic about the season and feels that once Washburn and Glenn Pysher are eligible, they will be a very competitive team. 45 Women ' s Tennis Sixth-year UNCC ' s women ' s tennis coach Penny Brawley had a .500 record for the Spring ' 84 competition. The 49er ' s are competing on the NCAA Division I level for the second season. Sari Dinerman, a freshman from Cincinnati, OH, has had to play all of her singles matches at 1 and senior Kellie Kayton (Charlotte) the team captain and leader nursed an injury — but maintaining an impressive record at 2. Two freshmen, Siobhan Riley and Dede Adolph held their ground successfully at positions 3-4. Senior Stacy Mender and sophomore Emily Taylor at 5 and 6 respectively completed the squad ' s season.

The former world-ranked player, all-American Oklahoma City University letterman and Charlotte club professional led the 49er tennis team to its best record (15-9) since a 19-6 finish in 1979. Besides the superior play exhibited by Holden, Hollingsworth, and Chacon, the 49er mentor has gotten quality play at 5 from Elon-transfer and junior Robert Wofford. In 21 matches thus far, Wofford is 15-6, including 1-0 at 3, which brings his record over the past two seasons to an impressive 29-12. And freshman Charlottean Wibowo Hadisubroto is 13-8 at mostly 6 singles. Senior Ed Caldwell has been " streaky " in an 11-12 season at 1-2. Though the 49er netters are 97-47 in singles play, their record in doubles is only 35-33. Coombes has tried several different doubles combinations, 13 in all. The most successful has been Chacon and Hollingsworth at 1 with a 7-4 mark. Holden and Caldwell were 6-3 at 1, but Coombes has switched the teams around. Now, Chacon and Caldwell are 3-3 at 1 and Holden and Hollingsworth are 6-3 at 2. Wofford and Hadisubroto teamed up for a 5-4 record at 3, but Todd Stewart is now coupled with Wofford and the -duo is 2-5 at 3. " We ' re in shape and we ' ll give it our best effort, " said Coombes. NOTE: The season wrap-up was with Karl Coombes. However, at the end of the season, Karl Coombes resigned to pursue personal business and was replaced by Art Abbott. L . 47 1 s m Mi - ;£r Volleyball Wrap-Up Second-year volleyball coach Becky Bowman posted a disappointing 8-35 record for its 1984 season in its third season of NCAA Division I level. The team played the 49ers most challenging schedule to date with a team abundant in youth. Rising juniors Debbie Seal and Clenna Crockett team with a trio of last season ' s " rookies " Constance Watt and Lisa Cole, former Harding High School teammates under Bowman, and setter Lisa Cagan, to build next year ' s fortune for UNCC ' s volleyball program. UNCC did post strong victories over much deeper squads from Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. A setback came when senior captain Beth Arends was lost for the season with a tragic ankle injury. After the injury, UNCC won two of its last 16 decisions and for the second straight year, was winless in six Sun Belt Conference tournament matchups. Nonetheless, Bowman is optimistic concerning the ' 85 season by recruit- ing a crop of newcomers and building from a strong nucleus of returnees. 48 Top Page 48 UNCC ' s 1984 Volleyball Squad Next Page Right: UNCC ' s Coach Becky Bowman discussing the team plan during time-out.

Third-year coach Gary Robinson, who was selected Sun Belt coach-of-the-year by the league coaches, led his 49ers to the championship stages of the tournament at South Alabama ' s beautiful Eddie Stanky Field in Mobile, AL. His young squad, which finished with the best win-loss mark and most victories (27-22) in the program ' s six-year history, blasted its way into the tournament finals with big wins over South Florida, 13-7, and Old Dominion, 12-4. Robinson, who was the third UNCC head coach to win coach-of-the-year honors in the Sun Belt joining men ' s tennis coach Karl Coombes and soccer coach Bob Warming, led the 49ers to over 25 individual and team game, season, and career records. In three seasons as head coach, Robinson-coached teams have won 65 against 66 losses, but his teams have won 26 of the 48 Sun Belt games and its first East Division title this season. The three years prior to Robinson ' s arrival (1981-82), UNCC posted only a 51-86 mark and won 12 of 31 league games, including an 0-8 mark in tournament play. Robinson will have the benefit of returning all but one player, senior pitcher and co-captain Mark West who won a school career record of 14 games against 10 losses in only two seasons. And, besides the 22 returnees, the aggressive 30-year-old head coach has signed three prep stars already. Junior co-captain Kevin Ayers, all-Sun Belt (Charlotte, NCJ, batted .329 while leading the club in stolen bases (25) and breaking the career record with 74 in 85 attempts. Sophomore third baseman Barry Shifflett, two-time all-Sun Belt, played hurt all season and still batted .331 in 40 games. And team MVP, UNCC ' s most versatile baseball player ever — Field Cuibreth, all-Sun Belt (lnman,SC), led the Sun Belt with a stingy 2.48 ERA as a righthanded pitcher and also led the club with ten homeruns, 13 doubles, and 43 rbi, while batting .256. " We ' re happy with our season, but not satisfied, " said Robinson, he continued, " being satisfied is dangerous. If you ' re satisfied, you won ' t work any harder.

Third-year coach Bob Warming ' s squad turned in an 11-7-3 final mark, the third best in the program ' s history. On one hand. UNCC posted seven shutouts which ranked as its second-best figure ever. But, on another note, the 49ers were shut out seven times themselves — again only one shy of a record (8 times in 1976 — UNCC ' s first season). Warming ' s squad outscored their opponents on the average 3.05 to 1.38 per game. UNCC was considered one of the finest teams in the Sun Belt Conference, earning the second-seed in the ninth annual league event. After breezing through a 5-0 victory over opening round opponent UAB, UNCC was upset by third-seeded Old Dominion, 3-0 in the semifinals in what Warming called, " the worst effort we had all season. " UNCC ' s season can only be termed unsuccessful when comparing it to last year ' s fortunes when the 49ers, although 7-9-4 overall, won their first-ever league championship. UNCC scored its second-highest goal total (64) ever, aided by the strong efforts of newcomer and leading point producer junior Tommy Kay (Massapequa Park, NY) who scored 10 goals and seven assists for 27 points. Kay got Dalanced scoring punch from sophomore John Griffith (Endwell, NY — 26 points), seniors Ray Leone (Severna Park, MD — 24 points) and Marty Apple (Marietta, GA — 20 points), and sophomore Patrick Cushing (Clearwater, FL — 17 points). Goalkeeper Matt Martus (Atlanta, GA) keyed the defense with a school-record 0.90 goals against average in 20 appearances where he accumulated a 10-fa-3 win-loss mark and was responsible for all seven UNCC shutouts. Junior Steve Railton (Massapequa, NY) was a strong and steadying influence at his sweeper back position which he manned in 21 straight starts and gave UNCC a strength at that position which the 49ers had not had since the 1980 season. Senior defenders Robbie Hofstetter (Miami, FL), Chris Flannigan (Charlotte), and Craig Hazeltine (Charlotte] rounded out their respective careers in solid fashion. And junior stopper back Craig Brown (Somers, NY), the Sun Belt ' s MVP a year ago, showed flashes of brilliance this season in 19 games. He teamed well on central defense with Railton. As Warming noted in preseason, the UNCC midfield would go on to become the finest in the 49ers history. And, celebrated central midfielder Michael Johnston (Central Islip. NY) reaped three more tournament honors including his second straight all-Sun Belt Conference Johnston teamed with Leone and UNCC a strikingly offensive mi accounted for 23 goals and 23 combination with Cusning ' s efforts. Warming credits assistant coach Steve Scott with UNCC ' s offensive turnaround from a season before (when UNCC was outscored 2.26 to 1.85) saying that the former professional player (ASL ' s Carolina Lightnin ' ) " had strong rapport with the team and was a tremendous influence on the entire team. I look forward to working with Steve during our indoor season. " UNCC nas already scheduled five indoor tournaments for the ' 85 season. UNCC returns nine lettermen for the 1985 outdoor season but Warming will have to bring in a strong group of newcomers to replace Johnston, Apple, Leone, Hofstetter, Flannigan, Hazeltine, and striker Robert Edwards (13 goals, 11 assists in three-year career) all of whom have been lost to graduation. selection.

" Delta Sigma Theta! " It is more than merely the name of an organization. It is a cncept symbolizing valiant womanhood — more than 100,00 women who are actively involved in social action programs designed to make communities more responsive to the needs of the peopl e: America more accountable in her promise of freedom, opportunity and dignity for her citizens: the deprived and oppressed more aware of their worth and potential, more capable of becoming self-actualized. Since Delta ' s founding in 1913, it has been an organization of women with the courage to lead, the strength to achieve, the commitment to serve, the freedom to be, the wisdom to hope. Delta Sigma Theta — Valiant Womanhood! By Roberta P. Duff UNCC-IOTA RHO CHAPTER The lota Rho Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. under the direction of Dr. Bertha Maxwell and Louise Reddick was founded on Saturday, December 1, 1972, by thirteen dedicated black women. These women sought ot be affiliated with a body that stressed helping themselves in academic and cultural endeavors so that they may operate most thoroughly and effectively in the search to find the necessary means to help others. lota Rho committed itself to Green Acres Nursing Home, Charlotte Rehabilitation Hospital and the Charlotte Three. They also rendered extensive service to the oldest active Charlotte alumnae member, Mrs. Grace Wiley. Emphasis was placed on ardent strident involvement and black awareness. The determination that possessed these thirteen hard workers will be matched. Due to their strong wills, lota Rho ill live eternally in the hearts, souls and minds of all who will follow these thirteen footsteps that were first in seeking the light of Delta at The University of North Carolina. 1984-85 Members Sherriynn Horton — President Valerie Grays — 1st Vice President Dianne Bostick — 2nd Vice President Lisa Midgett — Recording Secretary B. |.

A product of Selchow Rigliter Company, Trivial Pursuit provided many college students with a fun game to play and an almost harmless supplementary education. The object of the game is to collect a marker from six categories by answering questions correctly and then to win the game by answering a question in a category chosen by your opponents. Well, as always, its fun to win, but remember, the winner always runs the risk of being crowned " trivial. " 124 125 CAMPUS FOOD The fact remains, while we the students don ' t always want to admit it, that UNCC is home to a variety of on campus eating places. Of course there are the cafeterias. And we are blessed with three: Cone Center Commuter Cafeteria, Cafeteria and Activities Building (CAB), and th e Residence Dining Hall. The CAB and Residence Dining are typical of most college cafeterias but this year the Commuter Cafeteria had a complete facelift. Now specialty areas such as pastas, soups, potatoes appear along side the old faithful salad bar. The cafeteria also sports some new furniture and a drink machine that accepts dollar bills. There are three more well known eateries on campus; yes the New York Deli, the Rathskellar and the Hole in the Wall. The Deli, a campus favorite, offers a variety of sandwiches and desserts in an attractive setting for a meal with friends. The Rat provides meals in an " almost pub-restaurant " atmosphere and often host campus programs. Last but not least, is the Hole in the Wall. Located in Denny, the Hole in the Wall is a great place to grab a bite on the run or to sneak that chocolate eclair before class. As I admitted in the beginning, UNCC is home to variety of eateries. Each of them with special qualities to meet the needs of each student at a particular time. I ' m not asking you to " bow down " before the campus cooks, just remember every once in a while, that they have a hard task and perform admirably in the line of duty. 126 127 BOOKSTORE When encountering a college education, one inevitably encounters that thing which inspires both joy and sorrow: the college bookstore. In the early days of every semester, it is a place that chills the blood of all who must stand in line for hours carrying five books that measure thirty by fifty — each weighs thirty pounds and costs fifty dollars! Then, as the semester winds down and the lines thin out, the bookstore transforms into a student ' s source of life-blood — stacks of hershey bars, potato chips, pencils, calculators, hallmark love-notes, posturepedic necklaces, and station- ery (with which one writes home and requests money to purchase more of the above). It is certain that the bookstore experience cannot be ignored . . . and don ' t forget . . . please leave books, bookbags, or large handbags outside! — Micah M. Foreman 128 129 ROWE ARTS BUILDING Rowe Building — Home of the Arts of UNC-Charlotte. It is that glorious place in which people roam the halls dancing, rehearsing lines, vocalizing, puppeteering, painting, and playing scales on various and sundry instruments (to note). It is a place in which anything can happen. It is a place of infinites- imal creativity. Rowe hosts a variety of artistic " happenings " for the University community as well as the Charlotte community at large. The students in the Performing Arts Department offer musicals, plays, operas, jazz productions, chorale concerts, and instrumental concerts of all kinds. The students in the Visual Arts Department organizes ex- hibits by professors, as well as other professionals outside the UNC-Charlotte community. It is the dream of all of those to whom Rowe is dear, that all students experience the crea- tions of arts students, and hopefully, creations of their own. — Micah M.

Early in the school year, the Center is home to the lines for Registration, Drop Add, Scholarships and a host of other chores. But after these few weeks pass by, the Cone building turns into an oasis amidst the bustle of campus life. Some come to the Music Listening Lounge to enjoy good music while catching up on their reading or sleep. Then there are those who come for the fun and enjoyment of the Gameroom; billiards, video games, chess . . . and tons more. McKnight has its movies, the patio has its parties, the Lucas Room its meetings, and the Candy Shoppe its candy. On the side of Student Organizations, Cone University Center is home to the Student Government, the Student Media and to the Caucus (headquarters for UPB, Venture, SAFC Clerk, and more). And let ' s not forget Cone Center Office; located on the main floor of the Center, the Cone Office fills the administrative needs of the building. Closing the list of services in Cone are the Commuter Cafeteria and the Commuter Television Lounge. After reading this story of Cone Center ' s service to the campus it is easy to see why the building was named after Dr. Bonnie Cone. For Dr. Cone has committed her life ' s work to making UNCC a home of academic excellence and a pleasurable experience for its students, And Cone Center is vital to this plan in much the same way as is Dr. Cone herself. 134 I 136 137 % CAMPUS LIFE STYLES ACADEMICS h • 144 THE CHANCELLOR E.

Dr. Gwaltney complet- ed his undergraduate studies at Elon College, obtained his Masters of Appalachain State University, and went on to Duke University to get his doctorate. As the Dean of Admissions Dr. Gwaltney ' s main responsibilities include supervision of registration and student records and of course he supervises none other than admissions to the University. Dr. Gwaltney is glad to see minority and freshmen enrollment back up to relatively normal levels. He feels increase in out-of-state students is the result of UNCC ' s growing popularity as it becomes more well known across the nation. When asked how he feels University Place will affect UNCC, Dr. Gwaltney replied, " University Place will help UNCC ' s reputation as a college that is involved because it will provide a revenue which will allow the University to do things that state funding doesn ' t allow. " Dr. Gwaltney has already been at UNCC to see it rapidly grow. On his office wall hangs a dra wing done by an art student in 1973 of the UNCC campus — and grow the University hasl The campus is almost twice the size now as it was in 1973. Dr. Gwaltney forsees this trend in growth continuing into the future as UNCC constantly gets bigger and better. 152 — Felisa Cumbee DEAN OF ADMISSIONS GET IN ON IT • • • • " i m n i nu i ' V " I 1 i i l ' lr i " T i ' -ru m i nirraH i V ' i r i i f - . . ij m% i r , , DEAN OF STUDENTS THE REAL SCOOP Dean of Students Chuck Lynch has been working at UNCC 11 years. Before coming to Charlotte, he worked at the University of Miami in the housing program for six years. He came to UNCC in 1973 as the Director of Residence Life and in 1978 he became the Dean of Students. Besides being the Dean of Students, Chuck is also the Associate Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs. As the Dean of Students, his job includes supervision of commuter life, minority students, orientation for incoming students, and the student judicial system. Other parts of his job touch on the Brocker Health Center, job placement, counseling, and the Department of Religious Affairs. Being the Dean of Students appears to be no easy task and he says they certainly don ' t have to look for anything to keep him busy. By Felisa Cumbee 153 COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE The College of Architecture seeks to cultivate a sense of inquiry within each student and develop the individual ' s techniques of problem identifica- tion and solving. As process and product are viewed as being equally important and interrelat- ed, the COA believes students must possess the necessary verbal and visual communication skills for examining environmental issues, testing ideas, and communicating with others, as well as being equally proficient at analysis and synthesis. Located in the major and most rapidly growing metropolitan area of the Carolinas, the College is able to incorporate community assistance projects into the educational program, and students may observe major buildings under construction, evaluate recently completed build- ing complexes and examine the urbanization phenomena. The program is organized into a four-year segment (Bachelor of Arts in Architecture degree) followed by a one-year segment (Bachelor of Architecture degree). ■ . „ .■-. | n «- -— -w a a — |BH|Ma H 154 . D H COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES The College of Arts and Sciences is composed of the Afro-American Studies area, the American Studies area and the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Creative Arts, Criminal Justice, English, Foreign Languages, Geography and Earth Sciences, History, Mathematics, Philosophy, Physics, Poli- tical Science, Psychology, Religious Studies and Sociology and Anthropology. Baccalaureate degrees are offered in all departments and areas except American Studies. Medical Technology options are available in Biology and Chemistry; Computer Science options are available in Mathematics. The following graduate degrees are available: Master of Arts in English, Geography, History, Mathematics, Math- ematics Education, and Psychology; Master of Science in Biology, Chemistry, and Criminal Justice; and Master of Urban Administration. The College also offers graduate courses in Foreign Languages, Physics, Political Science, Religious Studies, Sociology and Anthropology. — UNCC 1982-83 Catalog, P. 86. 157 THE COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION The purpose of the educational programs in the College of Business Administration is to provide a broad educational base which will help prepare the student for responsible leadership in business and professional life. The College is committed to the educational development of men and women through study of the concepts and analytical skills which will prepare the student for productive and meaningful careers. Academic programs, methods of instruction, and research efforts in the College are designed to maximize the opportunities for each student to develop his intellectual potential to the fullest. The programs reflect the application of evolving concepts and knowledge in accounting, economics, man- agement, finance, marketing, and behavioral sciences, and the quantitative disciplines. The CBA attempts to serve effectively the needs of the business and professional community, other units of the University, and the local, state, and federal governments. The CBA has approximately 1,800 students enrolled in its three undergraduate degree programs. These are the B.A. in Business Administration, the Bachelor of Science in Accounting, which offers full academic prepara- tion for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation; and the B.A. in Economics. The College also offers a Master of Business Administration program at the graduate level. — taken from the CBA pamphlet 158 159 -1 COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING The College of Engineering is divided into three departments, which offer curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree. The Department of Civil Engineering focuses man ' s scientific and technological skills on the creation of physical facilities. The departments graduates may be involved in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, dams, and other structures; in the development of water resources for urban use, industry and land reclamation; in transportation systems including highways, mass transit, airports, railroads, pipelines, canals and harbor facilities; in the problems associated with man ' s environment such as air pollution, noise pollution, urban and regional planning, land development and ecological effects. Electrical Engineering is a very challenging field extending from microminiature electronic circuits to large generating and power distribution systems. Within this broad spectrum, the electical engineer will probably engage in one of the following activities: research and development, product manufacturing and plant operation, consulting and design, systems analysis and planning, technical sales, or non-engineering work within an engineering department. Mechanical engineers are involved in almost all aspects of the technological problems facing today ' s society. Among the major concerns of the mechanical engineer are problems related to conversion, utilization, and conservation of our limited energy resources. Additional important areas for the mechanical engineer include the design and analysis of machines, structures, and manufacturing processes related to the industrial output of the nation. Increasingly, this design and analysis is computer based. Mechanical engineers develop and utilize the techniques of computer- aided design and incorporate the use of robots in manufacturing processes. — taken from the College of Engineering Bulletin 161 THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION AND ALLIED PROFESSIONS The College of Education and Allied Profes- sions consists of four departments: Health and Physical Education; Curriculum and Instruction, which encompasses all teacher education courses; Education Administration and Supervision; and Human Services. The College also includes two more components: Military Science (AROTC) and Aerospace Studies (AFROTC). According to Dr. Heller the College has several goals: to prepare top quality personnel in teaching, administration, and support roles in the schools; to prepare persons for professional and support roles in the helping professions, such as child and family development; to promote improved health education and wellness programs in both public schools and corporate settings, to advance the study of teacher education and effective education through research and service activities; to serve as a partner with the public school and community agencies in the metrolina area; and to prepare competent leadership personnel through ROTC programs. But the College ' s ultimate goal, Dr. Heller says, is " working toward the best teacher education program, particularly in North Carolina, in the Southeastern region.

The program is fully accredited by the North Carolina Board of Nursing and the National League for Nursing. The Pathways Option at UNCC is an upper division program designed to build on the knowledge and experience a registered nurse has already obtained, eventually providing the R.N. with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and the additional skills and understanding to be gained by carefully guided study in a University atmosphere. The curriculum responds to the specific needs and goals of the registered nurse. Overall goals of the Pathways Option are the same in those of the University ' s generic nursing program — to prepare a nurse who is capable of providing nursing care in various settings, functioning as a change agent and a leader in the promotion of health, and advancing through further education at the graduate level. The purpose of the Master of Science in Nursing program at UNCC is to prepare nurses for planning and implementing practice in a specialized area of nursing through assumption of a primary role of teacher, clinical specialist or manager. Emphasis is placed on the utilization of nursing theory and research as a basis for nursing knowledge and practice. — taken from the College of Nursing pamphlets 165 166 1 1 : 1 ' ( « • gggjaHBi . k . y i 168 169 K PEOPLE Alderman, William Dale 172 L 173 1 i Q Barbee, James Devin Barnett, Mary E. 174 J. 176 Bolton, Suzanne K. 177 179 180 Byas, Karl Edward 181 182 183 Cowan, Toya Yvette 184 I i-L 185 186 187 188 Ferguson, Rhonda Yvette Foreman, Hank 189 m n H J l Nj ■ uL d Jk Foster, Julia Anne 190 191 192 _ Granja, Jr., Carlos Alberto 193 . 194 — Ll Wf Harward, Perry J. 195 196 Hesse, Ellen Marie Hinnawi, Tarik S.

On the step-up above the tender browning stalks, cold greyness scrapes across the red, still warm from the noon sun, and leaves chalky reminders of utility. Cool steel eyes, pinioned on the horizon, as each angled limb rises monotonously with slow even breaths. On the greyness the tall form juts up perpendicularly, casting a shadowy cliff on the beveled frame.
