' imMim 3iM m Pine Needles The University of North CaroHna at Greensboro Greensboro, North Carohna Volume 71 2 — Table of Contents Paige Thigpen, Business Manager Jordan Montgomery, Photography Editor Marks C. Lane, Managing Editor and Copy Editor Sharon Leigh Vance Editor-in-Chief Table of Contents — 3 We, the People by MARKS LANE Jn a cold October night five thou- sand people gathered at Jamieson Stadium to participate in the first Homecoming game in the ninety-one- year history of this school. As we stood to hear the national anthem our attention was focused on one idea: We, the People of the Universi- ty of North Carolina at Greensboro, are wholly responsible for restoring, establishing, and preserving tradi- tion. In doing so we build a lasting pride which ensures future students and administrations of a heritage rich in American collegiate spirit. UNC-G stands at the brink of a new era in the beginning of its ninety-second year. Nineteen hun- dred eighty-two saw the birth of a greater American collegiate spirit than the campus had seen since the days of World War II. In those days the campus of only women students remained at home while young men defended our country abroad. The spirit and patriotism were a result of a war. Today the campus boasts an enrollment nearing eleven thousand with young women and men having an increased awareness of the impor- tance of national security and peace with other world powers. Students have a greater appreciation of the peace and freedom our leaders are working to preserve. It is impossible to ignore the heritage handed down to us today at UNC-G. Women students gave this institution seventy-three years of heart, spirit, self-discipline, and academic achievement. They established traditions long since past but not forgotten. Their contribu- tions are immeasurable as well as their spirit and devotion. The blazer tradition distinguished classes of women for years. In their sophomore years they were assigned blazers of the color designated their class. This tradition sprang from the idea of assigning a particular color to each class beginning in 1893. The first designated color was red. This color was followed by green for the next class, blue the next, and then lavender. The colors remain today but the blazers are hanging in the closets of alumnae. The class of 1983 had the distinction of being designated red. Gone also are the traditions of the May Queen, May Day, and chapel. As a celebration of spring. May Day was a gala event including the winding of the maypole, a ball held in the even- ing, and, in earlier years, a Shakespearean production. Most of the festivities were held in the am- phitheater on the golf course which has since disappeared. The event was also a celebration of beauty highlighted by the May Queen and her court, elected by the student body. Such pageantry had been left to the past until the crowning of the first homecoming queen in the school ' s history last fall. Chapel was the time when the university sat down together. At noon on Tuesday the student body assembled in Aycock Auditorium and sat according to class. Freshmen sat at the back; seniors sat nearest the stage. The programs weren ' t always religious but always included con- gregational singing — one way in which unity and school spirit were maintained. Although it is not possi- ble to assemble the student body of today under one roof on campus, it is widely hoped that a large majority of students, faculty, and administration will unite with alumni through the coming years at homecoming. The ever-changing identity of the school has brought about the birth and death of traditions at UNC-G. Not all changes are warmly welcomed and recognized as progressive but over time are best for the school. First there was the change from Woman ' s College to a coeducational university in 1964. UNC-G moved another step closer to the school we attend today with the addition of male students. In 1979 the campus moved forward with the start of the Greek-letter social system. Most students ignored this change in the school ' s character but those who supported it and par- ticipated in its growth and success received their reward. Even those who chose not to participate acknowledged the need for social structure and were pleased to see this system growing. The rise of the athletic program at UNC-G has captured national atten- tion. Winning national champion- ships is not uncommon for the soccer team and ladies ' basketball is con- sistently at the top of national rankings. From May Queen to homecoming queen, from handicapped student to Ail-American athlete, from fraternity president to freshman seeking to become actively involved, the in- dividual makes the difference at UNC-G. There is greater potential for the individual to become a leader here than in many universities. When the individual recognizes his rights and freedoms and begins exercising them responsibly he begins to under stand and appreciate the American collegiate experience more fully. The collegiate experience is what the individual makes it. This book is dedicated to the recording and preservation of life at UNC-G in 1983 and pays tribute to the in- dividuals who made the most of their experiences. We, the People of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, observe our heritage in greater ap- preciation of the past and work to en- sure future classes, faculty, and ad- ministration of a greater tomorrow. 4 — Opening rlt « . Opening — 5 1 ot in the ninety-one-year history of this school has there been an event to compare with the magnitude and celebration UNC-G ' s first Homecoming. For a university sadly lacking in traditions around which students can rally, the advent of Homecoming was indeed a blessing. It was the unanimous opinion of the five thousand Spartan fans gathered at Jamieson Stadium that this was the breath needed to resuscitate the fainting spirit of UNC-G. Since the addition of men to the campus in 1964 the changes they have made are vital to the rise of col- legiate spirit. This was never as evi- dent as on the night of October 28, 1982. Thanks to seventeen young men and their coaches, UNC-G celebrated its first Homecoming game and festivities. In view of the wildly enthusiastic response from the crowds it it may seem unbelievable that there had been stiff opposition to the proposed idea of electing a homecoming queen. The purpose of the event was to foster spirit and encourage unity of students, faculty, and administration traditional to so many universities. Whereas it took an individual to try defeating the proposal, another in- dividual led the fight to create and establish the badly needed tradition. Early in October Student Senate passed a resolution condemning the selection of a homecoming queen calling the event discriminatory and debasing. The resolution, co- authored by the Student Govern- ment Vice President and a senator, stated that the university and its stu- The Birth, Breath, and Blessing of Homecoming by MARKS LANE dent orgnizations had a policy of non-discrimination based on dif- ferences such as sex and race. The authors felt the election was therefore demeaning to any woman involved because it placed emphasis on physical characteristics. Further- more, they insisted the election would be detrimental to race rela- tions at UNC-G. The voice of the majority, Randy McGuire, defended the objectives of the contest. As Vice President of EUC Council and coordinator of the contest, he made it clear that the desire of the Council was to ensure equal representation for all student organizations. McQuire maintained that the nomination process had covered all organizations without regard to race and as democratically as possible. McGuire nobly continued with his plans for the contest despite the resolutions and ramifications. He and the Council held the view that the students were desperately searching for something around which to rally. Undoubtedly, a homecoming queen crowned at the soccer match against Notre Dame would appeal to the masses and ensure a renewed interest in the rise of tradition at UNC-G. And rally they did! An hour before the start of the soccer match the crowds flowed into the stadium. The turnout and show of support was unequaled by any event in the school ' s History. At 7 p.m. six finalists in the homecoming queen contest were escorted onto the field. Each contestant had the distinction of being a member of the first homecoming court at UNC-G. At 7:05 the crowd roared as the crown was placed on the head of one of the most delightful and distinguished personalities in recent UNC-G memories. Elizabeth " Skoal " Ford, representing Tau Kappa Ep- silon fraternity, captured the limelight as the first homecoming queen in the school ' s ninety-one-year history. Escorted by TKE Joey Katzenstein, she represented a triumph for the EUC Council and a milestone in the development and preservation of true American col- legiate tradition. At 7:30 all attention was focused on the Spartans as they took control of the ball and continued to possess it most of the first half. They fired shot after shot to succeed only with a penalty kick. A very grueling second half brought only one goal for the Irish and excitement soared as regulation time ended with a tie. Even a double overtime did not affect the Spartans ' performance. The Irish proved their luck in an eventual vic- tory: the Spartans proved their strength. In a year when blessings were counted slowly and traditions saw slow, sometimes unstable beginnings, we must not fail to acknowledge the true gift which was given our school. Though we lost the game, we won a tradition to be shared by future students, faculty, and ad. inistra- tion. We can be proud that wt par- ticipated in the birth, breath, and blessing of Homecoming. 6 — Opening Opening — 7 From Mclver to Moran by DOROTHY F. CLARK J. he University of North CaroHna at Greensboro was established by legislative enactment on February 18, 1891, and opened on October 5, 1892 with a student body of 22.3 and a faculty of 15. The City of Greensboro, situated near the geographical center of the state, was selected for the loca- tion of the new institution. Its citizens voted bonds to the sum of $30,000 for the erection of the first buildings, and the original ten-acre site was given by R.S. Pullen and R.T. Gray. The University was known first as the State Normal and Industrial Col- lege (1892-1919), later as the North Carolina College for Women (1919- 19311, and as the Woman ' s College of the University of North Carolina (1932-1963). It came into being as a direct result of a crusade made by Charles Duncan Mclver in behalf of the education of women. Other pioneers in public school education — notably, Charles B. Aycock, Edwin A. Alderman, and James Y. Joyner — came to Dr. Mclver ' s assistance; but to him, more than any other individual, the University owes its foundation. During the years 1932-1963, the University known as the Woman ' s College of the University of North Carolina was one of the three bran- ches of the consolidated University of North Carolina. In 1962, the Board of Trustees recommended that the Greensboro campus become coeduca- tional in the fall of 1964. By act of the General Assembly in the spring of 1963, the name of the institution was changed to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The crusader for founding the in- stitution, Charles Duncan Mclver, served as its first president. In 1906, following the death of Dr. Mclver, Dr. Julius I. Foust became president and served until 1934 when he retired from active service. In 1934, Dr. Walter Clinton Jackson, who had served as teacher and vice president, was elected head of the institution with the title of Dean of Administra- tion. By act of the Board of Trustees in 1945, the title of the head of the in- stitution was changed to Chancellor. Dr. Jackson, who retired in 19.50, was succeeded by Dr. Edward Kidder Graham. After Dr. Graham ' s resigna- tion in 1956, Dr. W. W. Pierson, Jr., served as Acting Chancellor until Ju- ly 1, 1957, when Dr. Gordon W. Blackwell became Chancellor. Dr. Pierson returned to serve again as Acting Chancellor in September, 1960, after the resignation of Dr. Blackwell. Dr. Otis Singletary became Chancellor July 1, 1961. Dur- ing the period of November, 1964, to February, 1966 while Dr. Singletary was on leave of absence. Dr. James S. Ferguson served as Acting Chancellor until his resignation on November 1, 1966. Dr. Ferguson again served as Acting Chancellor and was appointed Chancellor on January 9, 1967. Dr. Ferguson served until his retirement to return to teaching in the summer of 1979, when Dr. William E. Moran became Chancellor. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro entered a new era when it became a coeducational university in the fall of 1964. It assumed a greater role as a part of the public education system of the State of North Carolina. As a state institu- tion it desires to be of the greatest possible service to the people of North Carolina, and its advantages are open to all on similar terms without regard to race, color, or na- tional origin. During its first seven decades, the institution ' s mission was to prepare women, primarily undergraduates, for the most effective living of that day. Today the goal — effective liv- ing — remains the same but its scope has been greatly expanded. UNC-G now offers men and women over 150 graduate and undergraduate programs. It provides opportunities to apply classroom learning to real-life situations through internships and practicums. It also offers students the chance to tailor-make their own programs of study based on individual needs and goals. Although contemporary in its educational program, UNC-G is also realistic. In its effort to prepare graduates for effective living, it has built into its program the flexibility needed to meet the rapidly changing needs of society. UNC-G, therefore, will remain a university in transition, not satisfied with yesterday or today, but always looking toward tomorrow. 8 — Opening Opening _ 9 Greek Tradition Grows by DANNY DANIEL i s early as February, 1974, the Chancellor of UNC-G, James S. Ferguson, recognized the desire of a small minority of students to form social fraternities and sororities at UNC-G and took actions in that direction. Students interest in clari- fying the university policy concerning Greek-letter organizations prompted Chancellor Ferguson to appoint a committee to advise him on two basic questions; (1) " Should the university adopt a policy recognizing frater- nities and sororities?, and (2) Can such organizations meet the needs of various students and contribute to the welfare of the university community? " The committee on fraternities and sororities met for ten months to discuss the various aspects of these questions. The committee talked with students interested in these groups and met with administrators from other schools where Greek- letter groups were active. The com- mittee also prepared a survey to try to discover the feelings of the student body towards Greek organizations. In the fall of 1974 the committee chose not to recommend the recognition of such organizations. Lack of support from the students was cited as the chief reason as well as a lack of quali- ty supervision by the administration and faculty. In the spring of 1977 Vice Chancellor James Allen appointed an Ad Hoc committee on fraternities and sororities to once again examine the question of establishing the Greek system at UNC-G. This com- mittee took into consideration changes which had taken place on campus and priority consideration was given to the current requests by students and other organizational activities. The Student Government held open hearings to debate the merits of university recognition of fraternities and sororities. A resolu- tion was forwarded to the chancellor on September 20 calling for the Board of Trustees of UNC-G to allow the establishment of social frater- nities and sororities on campus. A student petition calling for the university to recognize Greek-letter social organizations was signed by 1176 students and presented to Stu- dent Government. A committee rep ort submitted to Vice Chancellor Allen on December 18, 1978, recommended the recogni- tion of fraternities and sororities on campus for a trial period of five years. A second Ad Hoc Committee was formed in March of 1979. This com- mittee presented Chancellor William E. Moran with a set of conclusions and guidelines to direct the establish- ment of fraternities and sororities. These guidelines included policies on housing, academic requirements, membership, and hazing. The report called for the formation of a screen- ing and review committee to screen the recognition to be given any such organization. Once in place the com- mittee would be expected to provide an annual review and evaluation of existing fraternities and sororities. About the time that the second Ad Hoc committee was busy with its task, Sigma Tau Gamma, a national fraternity, was asked to form a colony at UNC-G by several students who were based in Hinshaw Dormitory. Sigma Tau Gamma granted colony status to this group and petitioned the university for official recognition. The university denied them recogni- tion saying it was not prepared for colonization by fraternities or sororities. The members of Sigma Tau Gamma decided, however, to continue to function as a Greensboro colony and held numerous social and rush events. Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity also petitioned the university for recognition in 1979 and were turned down. Like Sigma Tau Gamma, they, too, continued to function as an unrecognized fraternity. The first meeting of the screening and review committee resulted in the invitation of all national fraternities and sororities to apply for official recognition at UNC-G. Over fifty organizations asked to be considered and nearly forty of these groups sent representatives to LINC-G to meet with the committee. By April 24, 1980, the committee had selected five national fraternities and nine na- tional sororities to receive approval for colonization at LINC-G. In the in- vitations were a set of guidelines which each group would be expected to follow. Earlier that spring Sigma Phi Ep- silon Fraternity was denied universi- ty recognition. Upon release of the committee ' s official list of recognized fraternities the three which had peti- tioned and been rejected strongly contested not being on the list. The committee stated that these three had not ranked as high as was re- quired to receive recognition. The committee set the fall of 1980 as the date for the selected frater- nities and sororities to colonize. Four national fraternities and seven na- tional sororities actively recruited members in the fall of 1980. Since that time UNC-G has increased its Greek community to include seven chartered fraternities and six chartered sororities. 10 — Opening Opening— II Spartan Success Story by TY BUCKNER Intercollegiate athletics have ex- isted in some form at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for as long as anyone can remember. Over the last three to four years the UNC-G athletic program has enjoyed success like never before. Having firmly aligned itself with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III two years ago, the athletic program has steadily improved. Spartan teams are now nationally competitive. The achievements of two UNC-G teams in 1982 bear witness to the re- cent upswing of the athletic program. In March, the women ' s basketball team, under first year head coach Lynne Agee, reached the final game of the inaugural NCAA Division III Championship tournament before losing by one point in overtime. Then, in November, the soccer team captured the University ' s first team national championship by winning the ninth NCAA Division III title under the guidance of coach Mike Berticelli in his third season. UNC-G has become a Dixie Inter- collegiate Athletic Conference cham- pionship contender in each of the eight league sports that Spartan teams participate. For example, every UNC-G team recorded an upper-division (top four teams) finish during the 1981-82 year, and five teams captured conference regular season or tournament championships. Four outstanding coaches have been largely responsible for the Spar- tan teams ' success, and they were recognized for their efforts. Soccer and golf coach Mike Berticelli, who came to UNC-G from Thomas Col- lege of Maine in 1980, was named South Region Soccer coach of the year in 1980 and 1981. Women ' s basketball and tennis coach Lynne Agee, who came from Roanoke Col- lege in 1981, was Dixie Conference women ' s basketball coach of the year following the 1981-82 season and was runner-up in balloting for national Division III coach of the year honors. Volleyball and Softball coach Tere Dail, after four seasons as a head coach at UNC-G, has been named Dixie Conference coach of the year in both sports. Ed Douma, who succeed- ed coach Larry Hargett as men ' s basketball and tennis coach, brought nine years of head-coaching ex- perience when he came in 1982 from Kent State University of Ohio, a Division I Program. UNC-G athletes have won numerous All-Dixie Conference awards over the past several years and some have received all-region honors as well. Four players have been accorded All-America recogni- tion. They are golfer Joe Caldiera in 1980, golfer Ryan Fox in 1981, women ' s basketball player Carol Peschel in 1982, and soccer player Louis Johnstone in 1982. 12 — Opening Opening — 13 STUDENT LIFE Edited by Sharon L. Vance The Rock, one of UNC-G ' s most memorable landmarks and the school ' s only 12.7 ton belletin board, serves as the somewhat bumpy can- vas for student messages and graffit- ti. Legend has it that the Rock began as a tiny pebble found on campus, but in reality the Rock was purchased from Lambeth Construction Com- pany in 1973 for $31.78 by the Phi Kappa chapter of Alpha Phi Omega. The men ' s service fraternity had the Rock hauled to UNC-G from a A 12.7 Ton Bulletin Board, The Rock by Dawn Ellen Nubel Jamestown quarry as a measure to help save the statue of Charles Dun- caun Mclver which standsin front of the library. Before the Rock, students had painted the statue of Dr. Mclver and the combination of paint and erosion was wearing it down. Much to the relief of the administration Alpha Phi Omega initiated the Rock as the new object for painting on August 21, 1973. The Rock is still a source of inter- est and a source of information on campus. WUAG, the campus radio station, used it to advertise their luck to their graduates, and the Greeks on campus used it often to announce their events and to help promote shcool spirit. During the last weeks of spring semester it was also used as an election billboard, be£u-ing slogans like " Those Who Know Better Vote For Katzenstein " and " Cyndi Brown For Attorney General. " 14 — Student Life Student Life — 15 Greensboro ' s City Stage 1982 Cars were absent from the streets of downtown Greensboro during the weekend of October 1-3, but people certainly were not. Participation was the real highhght of the third annual City Stage Celebration, sponsored by the Greensboro Arts Council and Miller Brewing Company. The thousands of Greensboro and sur- rounding area citizens as well as newcomers to City Stage were awed by the event. It appeared as a mini World ' s Fair. Every interest was fulfilled by some feature of the three-day affair. Fifty acts performed during Saturday and Sunday. Highlight performances in- cluded Pieces of A Dream, Commander Cody and Jerry Walker. For all those who still had the " sand in their shoes, " Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs were on hand to sing " Miss Grace. " Well-known jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie could be found at Stage One throughout the weekend. The folk Art stage was one of the more popular areas. Crafts such as pottery, quilting, woodcarving and basket making were demonstrated. For the younger set KinderKountry was the place to be. UNC- G ' s Theatre for Young People was spotlighted in this playground. The first North Carolina Black Arts Festival was added. " People-watching " was one of the other activities of City Stage. It was obvious that many people were there to have fun and from the look of things, they certainly did just that. 18 — City Stage The tall buildings in downtown Greensboro provided the background tor the annual celebration.

Fisher, who is president of the Coun- cil for the Advancement and Support of Education, was the featured speaker at the Ninetieth Founders ' Day convocation, October 5. Fisher said that UNC-G was doing well, but that there was a need for private support. N.C.

Chancellor Moran presented the Bullard Awards. The recipients were Dr. Warren Ashby, head of religious studies, and Jonathon McNeil, a 1982 graduate of UNC-G. The Prospectus III report was given by Dee Smith, campaign chair- man. $4.4 million had been raised at that time. The University Women ' s Choir provided music for the convocation. They performed the Litany of Com- memoration and Hymn to the Waters. Jenny Hilton ended the pro- gram with The University Song. Litany of Commemoration Almighty and Everlasting God, Source of all Wisdom and Strength: For our faith in the dignity of every human soul, and the infinite worth of all mankind — We give thanks to Thee, God. For the preservation of our state and nation, founded upon this faith in freedom and brotherhood — We do humbly thank Thee. For men and women who throughout our history have possessed the courage to pro- claim and defend these principles, that the promise inherent in them might live — We thank Thee, the author of our faith. And today, for one who translated sacrifice and toil into the founding of this in- stitution, solemnly dedicated to the fulfillment of that promise — We thank Thee, as we honor his memory. For the unidentified many who caught from him that vision, and by their silent but powerful belief in his dream made it the Common Will — We give thanks to Thee. O Lord. For those within these walls, who have devoted their lives to the end that true scholarship and enriched living might be within the reach of young people everywhere — We give thanks to Thee, God. For thousands of students who have enjoyed this heritage, and have given forth manifold that which they have received — We do thank Thee, Lord. And ever mindful of the deep obligation to preserve and extend human happiness through knowledge and service, we pray that Thy hand be upon us in the challenge of this hour, as it was upon those who dared to build a college in days of great privation. Amen. May those who enter here recognize in Thy goodness and Thy wisdom the strength which may be theirs as they join, in spiritual communion and fellowship, those who have gone before; may they rejoice in that tradition of sound scholarship and responsible freedom, bequeathed to them in good faith by those our honored dead; may they count this heritage a challenge to higher and nobler service. That none among us may falter. That none among us may forget. We pray Thee, God. For such is our reasonable service. For all the saints, who from their labours rest. Who Thee by faith before the world confess ' d. Thy name.O Jesus, be forever bless ' d. Alleluia! Alleluia!

This year the company ' s concert consisted of five dances encompassing styles from classic vallet to freeform modern dance, giving the evening a diverse range of entertainment. Opening the performance was a modern dance, ' ' Focus " , choreographed by Dorothy Berea Silver, a former Graham dancer and current artist-in-residence at UNC- G. " Focus " explores the idea of children discovering a new toy. The dancers relied on an eight-foot cir- cular platform fixed atop a large in- flated innertube. Following " Focus " was the only classical ballet selection, " Pas de Trois " , from " Swan Lake. " The dancers displayed the technical demands of the dance with grace. " Fermorphosis Myths " , a dance pertaining to various myths about women, was accompanied by unique sounds of video games, incessant phones ringing, and the voices of the dancers in an up-and-down cacophony. The lighting designed by Dana Lowell greatly enhanced the performance. Dancers were able to show their in- dividual qualities of movement in the performance of " War Babies. " The profound statement of war and its impact created intensely emotional images for the audiences. The final performance of the even- ing was " Video Jukebox. " Based on a casual theme, dancers wandered on as stagehands and then moved through the audience greeting peo- ple. " Video Jukebox " developed through various episodes, each telling a story.

It began on Wednesday, Oc- tober 7, with the traditional " Kiss or Treat. " On Thursday, October 8, a pep rally in the quad brought the students together to cheer on the Spartans. The highlight of Fall Sprawl was held at Jamieson Stadium: The first Homecoming in the ninety-one year history of UNC- G. Elizabeth " Skoal " Ford was crowned UNC-G ' s first Homecoming queen. Although there had been much controversy over celebrating homecoming, it proved to unite the school behind its team. Even though the Spartans lost, the spirit of the crowd never lessened. After the game, the traditional fireworks display was held. Many students held parties in the dorm after the game. The campus was invaded by many creatures on Friday, October 9, who were sear- ching out all the dorm parties. The quad was filled with many activities on Saturday and Sunday. Students enjoyed the music of " Killowatt " and " Arrogance " while ARA treated them to a picnic in the quad. At nightfall, once again creatures began to make their way to the costume ball at EUC where they danced to the music of " Smyle.

As evening falls each year on the day before final ex- ams begin, the campus begins to glow with thousands of candles lining the streets and walkways. No other event inspires the hope and spirit of the Christmas season quite like luminaries. For thirteen years the luminaries have symbolized the start of the Christmas season for students. Over five thousand candles glowed this year as students assembled in the quad to sing carols around a bonfire. The event was sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega, EUC, and Gamma Sigma -Events Sigma. . , . Lumanaries and Lovefeast The lovefeast is an annual event at UNC-G attended by over two thou- sand people from the campus and the surrounding community. This year ' s service was led by area ministers and the Neo-Black Society performed during one of the four services. Each year ' s lovefeast features the singing of carols, the reading of scripture, and prayer. Moravian buns and cof- fee are served to the congregation and candles are distributed. When all candles are lit the service ends in a final carol. It has become a tradition to carry the glowing candles from the service into the night. It is considered good luck to reach your destination with the candle still lit. Black History Month On January 30, 1983, February was proclaimed Black History Month at UNC-G. A convocation was held to proclaim the event, a first at the university. Chaplain Ralph Ross of A T State University was the featured speaker and spoke on " The Role of the Black College Student in the " SO ' s.

As the student ' s alarm clock sounds and he reaches to turn it off, it dawns on him what dav- it is. FRIDAY! After classes he will pack his things and head home. Many others like him will also be shuffling to their cars with suitcases and books. This familiar site has led I ' NC-G to be nicknamed a " suitcase college. " Because many students are going home for the weekend, one could con- clude that for many, home must not be very far away. Therefore, students take advantage of the easy access to their homes. For the Weekend Although LINC-G is considered a " suitcase college " , this trend appears to be declining. One reason could be the expansion of Greek life at UNC- G, creating a family-away-from fami- ly effect. Also, UNC-G has broadened its social structure with many more activities on campus. With the in- crease of these social activities, school spirit also seems to be on the increase. In spite of the fact that UNC-G ' s nickname, " suitcase college " , is fading with the incrase of activities on and around campus, many students still insist there is no place like home. Features — 55 Perlman Highlights the The magical season began with Dizzy Gillespie, famed trumpeter of the forties who revolutionized the world of jazz with bebop music. Mr. Gillespie is renowned for his puffed cheeks and specialized horn. Twice this year the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra performed at the university. On the first occasion they helped in celebrating Founder ' s Day. Their second appearance on February 1 included guest pianist Edward Cone. The Gewandhaus Orchestra of Zeipzig, founded by Johann Sebas- tian Bach in 1743, performed on November 8. This exceptional or- chestra, under the direction of Kurt Masar, proved to be among the leading contenders for the title of " Europe ' s Finest Orchestra. " Appearing November 13 was the American Ballet Theater II, under the direction of Richard Englund. The company was a showcase of ris- ing young ballet stars. The highlight of the Concert Season was the performance by fam- ed violinist Itzhak Perlman. Mr. Perlman has won the coveted Leven- tritt Competition and numerous Grammy awards for his recordings. His presence on stage, on camera, and in personal appearances speaks eloquently for the cause of the han- dicapped and disabled. .56 — Entertainment JC LS magical Season Entertainment — 57 Merchant of Venice UNC-G ' s department of Com- munication and Theater presented William Shakespeare ' s " The Mer- chant of Venice " on November 3. Though originally written as a com- edy, the play is commonly performed as a tragedy by eliminating the final act. William C. Wendt, director of the program, chose to present the play as a romantic comedy. Though the play is based on the amusing adventures of three sets of lovers, a somber note was incor- porated into the frolic by the perfor- mance of George Ward. He portrayed a man consumed with vengeance and hatred who, after seeing the error of his ways, learned a valuable lesson about prejudice and the tragic events which frequently follow. Since Shakespearean performers have traditionally worn the typical clothes of that era, Wendt decided to try a new approach using contem- porary costumes. Costume designer Pat Dinsmore, a senior majoring in design and technical theater, developed the costumes from the latest high fashion designs for men and women. — Entertainment Entertainment — 59 OUTSt ANDING STUDENTS ' Ra tde Tftc cUw Randy ' s courage and integrity distinguished him during the academic year as he fulfilled the duties of vice president of EUC Council. As the guiding force behind the establishment of the first homecoming game and queen in the University ' s ninety-one year history. Randy fought stiff opposition to the homecoming queen event and suc- ceeded. Randy recognized the need for a common denominator around which students could rally and persevered until UNC-G had its first homecoming. Drawing on the strong principles taught him by his parents, Randy meets challenges and is known for overcoming obstacles. His involve- ment extends to Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity as well as serving as presi- dent of EUC Council for 1983-84. Randy ' s recognition of the need for restoring tradition at UNC-G and his courageous leadership to give the University something which will last will be remembered by colleagues, administrators, and faculty. His con- tributions will endure long after he graduates. Also, Randy champions the " Save the Alligator " Foundation. 62 — Outstandins Student-s cUfiAeKc ( r MAde One of the most humble and ignificant contributors to the better- nent of Student Hfe at UNC-G was Dalphene Crowder. Through daytime jrogramming and the EUC Council ihe helped provide educational pro- grams and entertainment to students who otherwise might not have had such benefits. Her involvement with Gamma Sigma Sigma, Golden Chain, the MDA Superdance, the Alumni Phonothon, the Admissions Recep- tion, and the Alumni Reunion has ad- ded to a service record with which few students can compare. Dalphene felt her involvement was proof that caring, dedicated students make the difference at UNC-G. Never content to stand back and simply let matters go, Dalphene was a tower of strength and a well of goodness during her years at UNC-G. She offered hope that traditions will grow and remain strong at a universi- ty so badly in need of a greater image. Outstanding Students — 63 Bill Murray Ellen finds UNC-G challenging and a place where she continues to grow spiritually, mentally, and emo- tionally. Her contributions to Golden Chain, student government, and many friendships have increased her appreciation of the University and have helped make her education a fulfilling experience. A profound faith in God is one of the most important aspects of Ellen ' s life. Her parents, she says, are her best friends and have taught her how God is her source of strength. She is a fine example of how having these three as her best friends shaped her into a strong, sensitive, and sincere person. Outstanding Students — 65 I ad tecf S iC i Feeling that the L ' niversity prepared him to meet the challenges ahead, Rodney recognized the oppor- tunities before him and made the most of his years at UNC-G. He felt he had developed mentally, spiritual- ly, and socially through his involve- ment and that the University helped make him a much more rounded person. Rodney served as president of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity during the academic year. A devoted brother, he accredited the fraternity for its role in his development and was thankful for its lending social organization to the campus. Learning to deal with others was the greatest lesson he learned from the fraternity experience and brotherhood was a great reward. Rodney ' s leadership added to the higher standard of excellence in the Greek-letter social system. Through his service and involvement his con- tributions are recognized. 6fi OulstanHinf; .Students Teresa Lockamy Tftanle €UutCaf Athletic development during four years of academic achievement is a good description of Marie ' s educa- tion. She played basketball for the Lady Spartans with more heart and spirit than is common. Belonging to Golden Chain, Marie put as much heart and spirit into her studies as in- to her game. Because of her athletic participa- tion the Lady Spartans enjoyed an impressive season and became a powerhouse team. Her role as presi- dent and reactivator of the Physical P ducation Majors ' Association em- phasized further the need for student involvement at UNC-G. Marie became a major figure within the campus community because her determination and dedication to her department. Marie ' s love for life and physical, mental and spiritual fitness made her an unforgettable person at UNC-G. She accredits her parents with this love and enthusiasm. Marie believes in being the most and the best she can possibly be. She is a great credit to the university for both academic and athletic reasons. Outstanding Students F PO H m P " !

Lewis Johnstone Esker felt UNC-G was the ideal place to gain his education while representing his school in men ' s basketball. In his four years he con- tributed to the athletic notability of the school with impressive playing. Like so many students, Esker felt that the University was large enough to allow maximum opportunity yet small enough to allow a more per- sonal touch in professor-student rela- tions. He felt that UNC-G had given him a solid education from which he planned to build a successful future, hopefully as a professional person. Of all the people Esker noted as be- ing significant in his development, his parents stood above all. He hopes the future will allow him to be as good a parent to his own as they were to him. His good training and background made him a success as an athlete and as a student. 70 — OutsUnding Students Joe chose UNC-G largely because of its location, its art department, and because of its Neo Black Society. Having served as president of NBS, he felt that the organization taught him to be more sensitive to the needs of others as well as their rights. He hopes NBS will always provide for the rights of students, black and white. Citing his family as his primary source of love and understanding, particularly his mother. Joe feels that God is the most significant part of his life. Joe stated that through faith all things are possible. He also admires Martin Luther King, Jr. Joe hopes to be remembered as one who got involved and cared about his fellow students — not one who simp- ly went through the motions of get- ting a degree. His involvement is widely appreciated and very respected. Because of Joe ' s work, future students will have better organizations such as NBS. Outstanding Students - cc i S UUt K Rich attended another university prior to his enrollment at UNC-G and therefore appreciates the at- mosphere here. He feels that there is enough exposure to other cultures and lifestyles in Greensboro to broaden one ' s mind and yet help to appreciate one ' s own background. He remarked that UNC-G has unique quality, large enough to have the resources for an excellent education and yet small enough to be very personal. Rich held offices with the Com- muting Student Association and worked at the Main Desk of EUC during the year. He gained a sense of leadership through these oppor- tunities and felt that combined with his education, such opportunities gave him an advantage for future career expectations. Rich believes that UNC-G offers the best quality education available in liberal arts. His support of the University on and off the job makes him exceptional and a fine example of how involvement by students leads to progress. 72 — Outstanding Students Trudy touched the lives of everyone she knew during her four years at UNC-G. The warmth of her personahty and her genuine concern for others endeared her to the L ' niversity and her involvement with Gamma Sigma Sigma and her posi- tion as a hall advisor in Reynolds dorm enabled her to grow as a leader. 7e 3 e For Trudy, UNC-G became her " home away from home. " She describes her experiences as a hall advisor with humor and great insight. Each of the young ladies with whom she lived in Reynolds contributed to the best memories she has of her senior year. Realizing that the University gave her opportunities to become a responsible adult, Trudy plans to use her education to help those less for- tunate than she. Helping people is the joy of living for Trudy and her four years of service and dedication to fellow students have made her a distinguished leader and friend to all. Outstanding Students Jon Hensley Jeff wanted to be remembered as dynamic, interested, concerned. And dynamic he is. A freshman at UNC-G this year, he is a top-rate disc jockey at WUAG. Jeff beheves involvement is on campus everywhere, but it takes self-initiative to discover it. Jeff chose UNC-G because he beheves in its motto: " Where respon- sible freedom is exercised. " He feels the individual is the most important aspect to the collegiate atmosphere. Jeff relies on his Christianitv, his parents, and his music to get him through any events life may hand him. His friends and his parents have shaped his outlook and his feelings about the future. Because of this, he does not mind sharing his success. OuIstandinK . " Students Danny learned early in life that you have to be open minded and ac- cessible to people; he proclaimed that it was an admirable quality. Well, if that is true. Danny is a young man deserving to be admired. Through Danny ' s many involvements at UNC-G he was certainly open- minded; but, maintained his own views, a quality he felt more impor- tant to the individual. Danny feels that UNC-G has given him a good education, as well as, practical knowledge to use in reality. He has been reassured by his extra- curricular involvement that he has what it takes to make it in the real world. Four years ago Danny was deter- mined not to just have four years of classes and now very honestly, Danny will be remembered as one of the most involved members of the 1983 graduating class. 76 — Outstanding Students S etA ' ?

During her four years at UNC-G Kendra ' s family remained stationed in Portugal on military assignment. Quite an ex- perienced traveler, Kendra is not yet satisfied being landlocked or tied to one locale for long. Fiercely indepen- dent and broad-minded, she established herself early in her four years and climbed the ladder to editor-in-chief of the Caromian by her junior year. She continued her success for yet another year as editor and raised not only the circulation of the paper but the standards as well. Kendra accredits her parents with setting the strongest examples in the development of her values and in- tegrity. She was chosen by her class as outstanding senior and was selected the class speaker for com- mencement. She will be remembered as much for her words as for her unselfish, humanitarian contributions.

Under the Uniforms bv Richard Mason When trying to pinpt)int exactly why UNC-G athletic teams have en- joyed the success they have over the past few years, one very important factor quickly becomes evident. The players, not just their athletic capabilities, are a major reason for the recent success for the Spartans. During his UNC-G appearance, Tom Sullivan pointed out how col- lege athletes are stereotyped as " jocks. " He followed this by em- phasizing that they have feelings and think like everybody else, but we the public stereotype them as " jocks. " Adding to the intelligence and emo- tions that make the Spartans win, the amount of sactifice each athlete makes, the stereotype " jock " becomes insulting. A quick glance at the personal files of the various UNC-G athletes will reveal that they are not a bunch of " dumb jocks. " Lewis Johnstone and Wendy Engelmann have not only been honored for their achievements on the field and court, but also for their academic success. Another important part of each of the Spartans is their emotion. Whether they allow their emotions to show or keep them hidden until they are alone and out of the public ' s eye. they all play with an intensity that says, " I want to win. " The players on the women ' s basketball team and the soccer team exemplify the two extremes of emo- tion. The soccer team seemed to thrive on their on-field outburst of emotion, while the Lady Spartans waited until the final second had ticked off the clock before they celebrated another victory or left to hide their disappointment from the crowd. It was this emotion that kept the soccer team going after losing to Clemson in the Clemson Invitational Tournament and after losing a heart- breaker to Notre Dame on UNC-G ' s first Homecoming. Their emotion would play a key role in the NCAA Tournament as the Spartans played all but one game on the road. Even in the championship game, the high emotion gave them the edge they needed on a cold rainy Sunday after Thanksgiving. In the same vein, it was this type of emotion, both the players and the fans, that enabled the men ' s basket- ball team to defeat North Carolina Wesleyan and St. Andrews when both teams were in the top twenty. It was the same emotion that carried the team through when they upset ASU at Boone. Another admirable trait in the Spartan athletes is the tremendous amount of sacrifice each one makes. They sacrifice free time, study time, and make other sacrifices only they know. The initial sacrifice of free time in- volves studying late while most students have already called it a night. They have to use what free time they may have for studying because while they are practicing, playing or traveling, the average stu- dent studies or wastes time. A letter to theCarolinian last fall pointed out that UNC-G athletes are just like the non-athletic students. They go to class and they eat in the same cafeterias. In many ways they are like the non-athletic students, but in ways they are markedly dif- ferent. The combination of scholar- ship, athletic ability, emotion, and sacrifice makes each player the win- ner both on and off the field or court. It is the unique qualities of each player, each team, that makes UNC- G athletes one of the finest represen- tatives for this great university. 84 - Athletics Athletics — 85 Volleyball Spikers Dominate Dixie Conference Lisa Beverly One of the key 1 players on the women ' s volleyball team this year was sophomore hitter Lisa Beverly from Mt. Airy. Beverly was player of the week several times in the Dixie Conference and was nominated by coach Tere Dail for an All- American honors. As a hitter and blocker, Lisa ' s job at the net was to drive balls home for a " kill " or block the opponents shot again for either a side out or a score. Beverly performed her job very well, as did all of her teammates. In one two game stretch she had a hitting percentage of .714 and was leading the team in hitting percen- tage with .514. A players hitting percentage is based on the number of hits a player has resulting in either points or a side out. Beverly was a very energetic player both on and off the court. During matches she would energetically congratulate her team- mates after a good play and when she was on the bench resting, she would give her team vocal support. Coach Dail has been very pleased with the way Lisa has developed as a player over the past two seasons and feels Lisa will develop into an ex- cellent player by the time she ■ graduates. J When coach Tere Dail ' s women ' s volleyball team took the court in 1982 she was not too sure of how she felt about the season. Although the team had a lot going for it in having four returnees from the 1981 Dixie Con- ference Tournament championship team, it was still a young team, with only two seniors and four sophomores. Her doubts and fears were soon laid to rest as the Spartans overcame their youth, after having played together awhile. By the season ' s end. the Spartans won the conference ti- tle, the Dixie Conference Tourna- ment, and received a bid to play Ohio Northern in the NCAA Tournament. Altht ugh the winning involved a team effort, there were four players who had outstanding seasons. Senior Brenda Suits made first team All- Conference, first team All- Tournament and was MVF of the conference tournament. Sophomore Maggie Hayes also had made first team All-Conference and All- Tournament. Sophomore Lisa Bever- ly joined Suits and Hayes and the first team in both All-Conference and All-Tournament. Sophomore defen- sive specialist Shirese Moore made second team All-Conference and join- ed her teammates on the All- Ti urnament team. Maggie Hayes Another one iif the key players fur this year ' s team nas sophomore Maggie Hayes. Maggie ' s job uas to set halls for the team ' s hitters. Coach Bail uas eery pleased with Maggie ' s setting this year and by the leay Maggie developed her serving and hitting game. Like Beverly Suits, and Moore, Hayes made Dixie Con- ference Player of the Week at least once during the seasim. Although Maggie ' s strength is her setting, she had two very strong games serving. In the game against (ireensboro College when the Spikers clinched at least a tie for the conference title. Maggie had four service aces In one other game, she had seven straight points while serving. Hayes, like the other sophomores on this year ' s team will be back ne.xt year as the Spartans volleyball team develi}ps into a nationally recogni:- ed volleyball pouer in Division HI Volleyball Spartans Spike Opponents Lisa Beverly Md.

Their only stiff competition came from North Carolina Wesleyan Col- lege, who had given the Spikers their only conference defeat early in the season. UNC-G avenged the loss by defeating North Carolina Wesleyan in a two-hour marathon in Rocky Mount. When the season neared its end, the Spartans held their destiny in their own hands. Two of their final four regular season matches were against Dixie Conference opponents. They first beat Greensboro College to claim a tie for the title. Next they traveled to Laurinburg to play St. Andrews for the outright title. The Spartans defeated St. Andrews, cap- turing the conference title and a first round bye in the league tournament. In the semifinals of the Dixie Con- ference Tournament the Spartans defeated St. Andrews. In the finals they were pitted against the only con- ference team to have defeated them, North Carolina Wesleyan. Again they defeated them for the second straight championship. The spikers received a bid to play in the NCAA Division III Tourna- ment. In the opening round UNC-G traveled to play Ohio Northern University where they were handed a season ending loss. Brenda Suits sends it back. Lisa Beverly powers one over and do Suits passes the ball to the net; Moore and Beverly prepare to set up. A Season of Soccer Celebration The Spartans line up for the National Anthem lieture the I ' niversity ' s first Homecoming game. It began as a year of promise for the 1982 UNC-G Soccer team. It was returning a strong nucleus from a team that had made it to the finals of the NCAA Division III South-New Jersey Regional playoff before losing to eventual national champion Glassboro State College. By the end of the year the team had proved how good it was by defeating Bethany College of West Virginia for the na- tional championship. The season began very quietly for the Spartans as they were only able to win their first few games over Con- ference opponents by one to two goals. During the fourth game of the year, they were ranked second in the nation and playing against tradi- tionally tough Averett College. The Spartans were only able to score one goal and lost 2-1. The Spartans continued their win- ning ways in their next game against High Point College with a 2-1 victory. They continued their slim win margins until their games against Catawba and St. Andrews. In the two games, the Spartans exploded for a total of twenty-six goals while only allowing one each by Catawba and St. Andrews. Head coach Mike Berticelli felt the team was finally beginning to play " its game " after th e two convincing wins. This coming together of the team could not have come together at a better time as the team was going into the " meat of its schedule. " The first part of the final part of the schedule was a trip to Clemson to play in the Clemson Invitational. In the first round, the Spartans blanked Division I opponent Appalachian State 5-0 to set up a meeting with perennial Division I powerhouse Clemson. The Spartans were able to shut the Tigers out for the first forty-five minutes but the Tigers got two early goals and went on for a 2-0 win. The Spartans then went on a three game winning streak defeating Wake Forest, Elon, and East Carolina. Then came one of the biggest games in Spartan soccer history: a Homecoming Game against Notre Dame. The Spartans battled Notre Dame to a 1-1 tie in regulation. After the Irish got two quick goals and put a damper on the festivities by defeat- ing the Spartans 3-1. The Irish goals Freshman goalie Tim Borer takes a goal kicli against Clemson. were the most scored against UNC-G ail year. The Spartans tuned up for the NCAA Tournament by defeating Methodist 5-0. The win over Methodist put the Spartans in a three way tie for the Dixie Con- ference title. The Spartans traveled north to begin play against Lyn- chburg College in the opening round of the South New Jersey Regional. The 3-0 victory over Lynchburg set up a grudge match between UNC-G and Glassboro State, the team that eliminated them last year. The SpM- tans got their revenge and the South New Jersey Regional Championship with a 3-1 victory. In the next round the Spartans were matched against the number one ranked Plymouth Stat e. Thanks to Mike Sweeney ' s goal in the second overtime, the Spartans were in the quarterfmjds against Cortland State. Again it was overtime and again it was Mike Sweeney scoring a goal for a victory in sudden death overtime, the first overtime the score still re- mained tied. In the second overtime The Spartans then had one obstacle between them and the Na- tional Championship. For once in the tournament the Spartans were play- ing in Greensboro at Guilford Col- lege. On a cold, rainy day the Spar- tans proved themselves champions. Fittingly it was Mike Sweeney who scored the winning goal. The clincher came in the second half on a penalty kick. The Bisons came back later to score one goal; it was not enough as the Spartans won 2-1. 90 — Athletics Johnstone Finishes on Top One name that is near the top of the list of outstanding UNC-G athletes is Lewis Johnstone, the all- time leading goal scorer in Spartan soccer history. Johnstone, of Lochmaben, Scotland, did not come to UNC-G to play soccer. In fact, the sport of soccer was new to him after playing rugby in high school. Johnstone, " a coach ' s player, " has excellent speed, quickness, and the knack of being where he should be at the right time. Another one of his strengths is his ability to play hurt. He had an injury in the early part of the 1982 season that should have kept him on the bench. Instead, he played and was instrumental in the Spartan ' s early season success. In his four years at UNC-G, Johnstone scored 66 goals. He scored 28 his freshman year, a school record, six his sophomore year, 14 his junior year, and 18 his senior year. The impressive thing about Johnstone ' s scoring in his senior year was that he always had the op- ponents best player covering him. Although he did not lead the team in scoring, he was a stabilizing factor on the field. When Bethany College began its surge late in the second half of the national championship game coach Berticelli put Johnstone in the backfield to help settle the team down and for defensive purposes. A lot of great things have been said about Johnstone, but the softspoken striker has never been one to blow his own horn. Instead of talking about himself, he just played the game to the best of his ability. As the record book shows, his best very good. Senior Lewis Johnstone heads the ball down field against Clemson. .Johnstone is the school ' s all-time leading goalscorer with 66.

For the season, playoffs in- cluded, the Spartans outscored their opponents seventy-six goals to eighteen. The Spar- tans almost equaled their op- ponents ' total output for the season in their 14-1 rout of Catawba. Notre Dame scored three goals against the Spar- tans, the most in the season. While the Spartans blanked nine of their opponents, two in the playoffs, Clemson was the only team able to keep them scoreless. The Spartans were led in scoring by sophomore Mike Sweeney. Sweeney scored twenty-three goals and had thirteen assists for fifty-nine points. Lewis Johnstone was second with forty-two points. Johnstone had eighteen goals and six assists. Third for the Spartans in scoring was Louis Borges with fifteen goals, ten assists, and forty points. The team, having its best record ever, a 19-3 mark, made an impressive record indeed. The team ranks 6-1 in the tournament. Doug Hamilton and Carmen Federico challenge a Clemson player for the ball.

Athletics — 95 Soccer The Nation ' s Best IF ■ r 96 — Athletics For the UNC-G soccer team, its 2-1 victory over Bethany College of West Virginia in the NCAA Division III Championship game was a glorious finish to the 1982 season. Before the championship final game the Spartans had compiled a 14-3 regular season record. In the playoffs the Spartans had already defeated defending champion Glassboro State and number one- ranked Plymouth State. The dream of a national champion- ship had been on the minds of players, coaches, and fans for a long time. When the team took the field Sunday, November 28, it was the dream coming true. In the early minutes of the game the Spartans fired a number of shots at the opponent goal. The Spartans drew first blood at the 25:45 mark when Louis Borges took his rebound- ed shot off Bison goalie Rod Hines and put it past him for a 1-0 Spartan lead. The Spartans continued applying pressure on the Bisons ' goal and eventually got a penalty kick on a hand ball. Sophomore Mike Sweeney took the penalty kick and drilled it past Hines for a commanding lead of 2-0. The Bisons came back in the final ten minutes and scored their only goal after a pushing penalty on the Spartans. The Bisons pressured Spartan goalie Tim Borer but he pro- ved equal to the task and kept the Bisons from scoring a winning goal. The Bisons outshot the Spartans 15-13, though the Spartans had the lead at halftime 10-3. Borer made nine saves for the Spartans and Hines had eleven for the Bisons. For the soccer team it was a day when shouting " We ' re Number l! " had become reality. Athletics — 97 BASKETBALL UNC-G Upsets St. Andrews The win over nationally third rank- ed St. Andrews added needed emo- tion to the Spartans winning form. Esker Tatum provided the one on one necessary to assure the Spartan victory with only five seconds remaining. The 72-69 win came as a surprise to St. Andrews who had enjoyed as much as a 14 point lead in the first half. Senior guard Will Peterson, a Division III All-American, was the leading scorer in the game ' s first half, with 17 points. Powell and Tatum contributed the leading points in the second half. 98 — Men ' s Basketball Men ' s Basketball — 99 BASKETBALL Coach Ed Douma is part of team ' s LJ ( ' 10(1 — Men ' s Basketball Winning Chemistry Men ' s Basketball — 101 BASKETBALL The Last Time Around 102 - Men ' s Basketball Men ' s Basketball — 103 Basketball Hustle . . . Determination . . . Skill 104 — Women ' s Basketball When looking back on the 82-83 basketball season, one thing will stand out in the women ' s basketball team ' s memory — injuries. The first injury came when senior and second all-time scorer in women ' s basketball, Jody Mangus injured a knee in the opening game at Guilford College. Jody was able to play, but was unable to regain her form before the season ended. The next injury was to sophomore Karen Crouch. Like Mangus she suffered a knee injury and was a wing player. The final, and in some ways, the most devastating injury, came when sophomore Sherry Sydney was lost for the remainder of the season when she came down wrong against Longwood College. But even with the devastating injuries, the Spartans were able to record an 11-1 conference record and an 18-6 regular season record. In the first part of the season UNC-G shaped a 5-2 record with wins over Guilford and Mesa Col- leges. Their only losses came to Divi- sion I schools: The University of Virginia and the University of Missouri. The games against Mesa College and the University of Missouri came in the University of Northern Colorado Tournament, where UNC-G finished third. The second half of the season opened with an eight game winning streak that Elon College stopped with a four point loss. During their eight game winning streak, the Spar- tans defeated five conference op- ponents and cross-town rival Guilford College. The loss to Elon started a downhill trend for UNC-G that saw the Spartans lose three of their next four games. In addition to the loss to Elon, UNC-G lost to Lenior-Rhyne and St. Andrews. The loss to St. Andrews was their first conference loss in two years and their second loss to a Division III school since the championship game loss to Elizabethtown. UNC-G snapped back with four straight wins over con- ference opponents before finishing the season with a loss to UNC-W. Women ' s Basketball — 105 Basketball Agee Guides Lady Spartans to 21-7 Season 106 — Women ' s Basketball Women Repeat as Tournament Champs When UNC-G traveled to Rocky Mount they had m ore in mind than repeating as champions in the DIAC Tournament. They wanted to avenge their only conference loss in two years. The chance to avenge their earlier 77-74 loss to St. Andrews came in Fri- day ' s semi-final game. The Spartans opened with a 12-4 lead early and St. Andrews was never a threat to the Spartans. In the first half the combination of a stingy UNC-G defense and poor shooting by the Lady Knights led to a 39-24 halftime lead for UNC-G. The Spartans opened the second half by burning St. Andrews with a 20-2 blitz and coasted into the championship game with a 75-47 victory. UNC-G was led by senior Marie Cawley who pumped in 17 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Sophomore Renee Coltrane added 12 rebounds and 13 points. In the championship game against Christopher Newport the Spartans overcame some early mistakes and cut the Lady Marlins lead to two, 34- 32 at the half. Although the Spartans lacked their intensity in the first half, the second half was a different story as they played to their finest capabilities. The Spartans outscored the Lady Marlins 14-7 in the first five minutes and continued to build their lead. They captured their second straight DIAC Championship 80-64. Junior Michele Blazevich led the Spartans with 30 points and 15 re- bounds. Marie Cawley scored 17 points and added 11 rebounds. Sophomore Brenda Tolbert con- tributed 9 assists. In addition to winning the cham- pionship the Spartans also placed three players on the All-Tournament team and had the Tournament MVP. Senior Marie Casley was named MVP and shared one of the three positions on the All-Tournament team with Michele Blazevich and Brenda Tolbert.

Junior center Michele Blazevich was named to the All-Tournament team in the University of Northern Colorado Tournament, All-Conference in the Dixie Conference, All-Tournament for the DIAC Tournament, and nominated for All-American honors. During the regular season, Michele led the team in scoring with 14.2 a game, was second in rebounding with 9.0 per game, and intimidated her op- ponents on the inside. In the con- ference tournament, Blazevich played brilliantly despite being in constant foul trouble. In the two games she played, she shot 61 " p from the field, scored 40 points, and grabb- ed 21 points. In the South Regional, she turned in fine games against Knoxville College and Rust College. For the tournament, she scored 33 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. Senior Marie Cawley also played a banner year. Marie made the All- Tournament team and was named MVP in the DIAC Tournament. Cawley was the second leading scorer during the season with an 11.8 average and averaged over three assists and four rebounds a game. But it was in the conference tourna- ment that Cawley played some of her best basketball. In the two games, she shot 47 " t from the field, scored 34 points and grabbed 19 rebounds. Joining Michele and Marie on the All-Tournament team was sophomore guard Brenda Tolbert. Tolbert sparked the team on offense throughout the year and played an important part when the Spartans used their press on defense. Brenda led the teams in assists with an average of five per game and averag- ed over nine points a game. In the tournament, Brenda hustled on both ends of the court, dishing out assists and making steals. Although she only scored 16 points, she had 11 assists and made three steals. In the South Regional, Tolbert played 70 of a possible 80 minutes. In addition to putting in her playing time, she had nine assists and eight rebounds. Although she played superbly throughout the season and the con- ference tournament, Wendy Engelmann did not get her just rewards until the South Regional where she made the All-Tournament South Regional team. In the South Regional, she shot 52 ' ' i from the field and scored 41 points in two games. In addition to the rebounds, she had eight assists. Like Tolbert, Engelmann spent a lot of minutes on the court during the two games, 39 against Knoxville and 36 against Rust. One member of the Spartans who did not receive the recognition she deserved was forward Renee Col- trane. Coltrane led the team in re- bounding, averaged double figures in scoring and was part of UNC-G ' s strong inside game. Despite fouling out in both games of the conference tournament, she scored 25 points and pulled down 23 rebounds. Again in the South Regional, she was hampered with fouls but turned in two excellent games. She scored 25 points and 31 rebounds, 22 of the re- bounds came in the consolation game against Rust.

It was also the beginning of yet another race for jobs and higher education. Jobless, ambitious, elated by the magic of the moment we assembled outside the Greensboro Memorial Coliseum in the warm and windy spring morning to honor and to be honored. In- side was the grail of our American collegiate experience — the goal for which we had labored, worried, prayed, and persevered: the diploma. The calendar carried endless demands in the six weeks prior to commencement. We sold commencement invitations, elected alumni class officers, selected the class speaker, elected twenty outstanding seniors, held parties, gave dinner parties, and began our last stretch toward that most celebrated event called graduation. The election of alumni class officers, twenty outstanding seniors, and the class speaker is a tradition originated in the late 1890s and each year causes unrest and a rash of questions con- cerned with the reason this even occurs so late in the year. In- deed, why elect class officers only weeks before commencement? Answers came from Miss Barbara Parrish ( ' 48) and Dean Clarence 0. Shipton. For seventy years this institution allowed class spirit to thrive with officers for each class. This tradition was obliterated by the first male student government president who felt female class officers were a threat to his power. This is one of the best examples of how students confuse power with ego and threaten the existence of tradition. When in 1983, Kim Theriault succeeded as the first woman student government president since 1972, she vowed to restore the tradition of class officers for each class. We are waiting. The election of alumni class officers, however, remains and is misunderstood. The purpose of this election is to elect three of- ficers, two to coordinate class affairs in the years following graduation. The other officer is the representative to the Alumni Board and serves for three years. The elected president and vice president are delegated responsibilities by the Alumni Associa- tion and serve their class as lifetime officers for reunions and other class matters. The 1983 Alumni Class Officers are Jill P. Cutler, Alumni Board Representative, Marks C. Lane, Vice Presi- dent, and Veda M. Shamsid — Deen, President. It is also tradition to elect twenty outstanding seniors in recognition of outstanding service to our University community. From the Class of 1983: Alisa Abrams, Diane Ball, Beth Binner, Ken Brinson, Joy Britt, Shari Chicurel, Dalphene Crowder, Jill Cutler, Danny Daniel, Denise Foster, Jill Hubbard, Teresa Lockamy, Fred Martin, Ricky McKeel, Bill Murray, Nina Ramseur, Richard Roper, Veda Shamsid-Deen, Kendra Smith, and Celeste Wood. The story behind the election and selection of the class speaker for 1983 brings smiles to the faces of those who know her. From the moment she learned of her nomination Kendra Smith went to work, preparing with deep conviction and determination for the honor to come. Perhaps no other candidate measured his or her success as a servant of the University by the outcome of this selec- tion as Kendra did. Each candidate faced a committee comprised of five seniors and two distinguished faculty members. This com- mittee consisted of Dr. Lawrence Fadely, Dr. Robert Stephens, Teresa Lockamy, Denise Foster. Dona Walk, Danny Daniel, and Marks Lane. Candidates gave a brief presentation and were then interviewed by the committee. Of the eight presentations, one showed more promise and preparation than the others. On the second and final day of the presentations Kendra ad- dressed the committee without the expected nervousness so com- mon to the circumstances. Fearlessly she delivered the words with rhythm, pause, dynamics, and the confidence which qualified her as the front-runner in the competition. Had she not removed note cards from the podium following her presentation we wouldn ' t have known they existed. The door shut behind her. Eyebrows raised and smiles stretched the faces of the panel members. Her words refreshed us; her conviction convinced us. Off went the heels. The shoulders dropped. Just above the con- ference room where we deliberated and tallied the results Kendra retreated to her office at The Carolinian. I toyed with my pen and paper and fidgeted like a child restrained long after his in- terest was spent. The moment Dr. Fadely revealed the fifth of seven first-place votes for Kendra I sprang from my seat, asking to be excused to visit the men ' s room. Whether my heels ever touched the ground as I darted up the stairs and down the hall to Kendra ' s office, I simply cannot recall. I braced myself in the doorway as my eyes caught hers. Words were purposeless. In that magical moment the word ' congratulations ' didn ' t come from my lips; it came from Kendra ' s. Third floor was a noisy, emotionally- charged corner of our campus that afternoon. The election results humbled and, of course, pleased us. One of the greatest responsibilities of the class officers and outstanding seniors each year is to sell invitations to graduation. The class fund is generated from the profits of this sale. This year 11,500 invitations were sold in the first sales period. A printer ' s overrun increased the number sold to 12,000. Each invitation sold for twenty-seven cents including the program, two envelopes, a degree insert card, and the invitation. The actual cost of engrav- Continued ing was twenty-two cents and the nickel profit went into the class fund. For five weeks seniors volunteered hours of their hectic schedules to sit in the foyer of the Alumni House selling invitations. When Beth Binner arrived for duty she resembled Santa Claus with her arms full of soda, a radio, and cards. She was a bird in a cage whose spirit leapt into moments of cackling and hearty laughter. At one point as we enjoyed a good joke with shrill laughter reverberating throughout the stately corridors of the Alumni House a dignified, mannerly woman stepped in to the foyer to remind us we were not in the dorms. Those seniors who served their class with unselfish hours of recording the sales of 12,000 invitations were Dalphene Crowder, Beth Binner, Denise Foster, Jill Hubbard, Kendra Smith, and Richard Roper. Those who volunteered time in the final sales were Ricky McKeel, Tee Lockamy, and Danny Daniel. Senior Day marked the beginning of the end. The Alumni House was the setting for the assembly of several hundred seniors who came to meet alumni, talk to Career Planning and Placement representatives, and to enjoy the fellowship and refreshments. Miss Barbara Parrish ( ' 48), Director of Alumni, greeted seniors at the door. She recorded each name and handed each a button with the class color and year brightly displayed. Inside the Virginia Dare Room seniors circulated among the alumni and ad- ministrative personnel. From painter ' s caps to balloons to but- tons it was unquestionable: RED was the color of our class. In a number of ways the Class of 1983 embellished its mark on the University in the remaining weeks prior to commencement. Refusing to allow any opportunity to slip away, embracing every chance to show appreciation for the memories of our collegiate ex- perience, we ran the race with delight. Our most important priori- ty was recognizing those who made our past days at the Universi- ty special. For the dedication and loyalty shown the University and especially our class a dinner was held to honor Miss Barbara Parrish and Dean Clarence 0. Shipton. The outstanding seniors and class officers spent the evening of May . ' ? sharing in the wisdom and goodness of the two people who had coordinated class affairs and organized our activities. Following the sixth course of a candlelight dinner the grand piano across the room led a rousing chorus of " Happy Birthday " for Dean Shiptcm. Shari Chicurel emerged from the kitchen carrying Aunt Jane ' s prized pound cake bearing two candles in the shape of question marks. Dean Shipton continued singing until he realized the cake was for him. Immediately following the celebraticm we discussed the need to earmark money in the class fund for a gift to help the hand- icapped students. President Veda M. Shamsid-Deen stressed the importance of helping those not as able-bodied as we. Upon adjourning Veda and I exchanged white jerseys to wear the next day at graduation rehearsal. Stitched on to those jerseys on the front were our respective titles in red letters. On the back both read, " UNC — Great " with the " G " distinguished in gold, our school color. The next day. May 4, was Reading Day and hundreds of seniors filed into Aycock Auditorium to rehearse graduation. As the outstanding seniors collected change in bread baskets Veda in- troduced Jill Cutler and me. Hoyt Price, Registrar of the Univer- sity, followed with an explanation of formalities and procedures to be carried out on graduation morning. At the close of rehearsel seniors flocked to the balcony of the auditorium where the last few invitations were sold. May fifth through the fifteenth was a period of seemingly endless responsibilities for us. We insisted on maximizing our op- portunities and making the most of the final days at UNC-Great. Upon completion of exams we approached graduation weekend with new wind in full, splendid sails. The staff of the Alumni House prepared for the onslaught of hundreds of returning alum- ni. I worried excessively about the impression the Class of 1983 would make. More importantly, I worried that these fine, older ladies might frown upon a man in a class officer position. After all, I will be dealing with them for the rest of my life. In droves they arrived, dentures gleaming, pictures of grand- children changing hands, speaking the kindest words, and regard- ing me with optimism I didn ' t expect. Thanks to Brenda Cooper, Judy May, Miriam Holland, Gina Bowden, Joe Gainer, Sharon Snider, and Carolyn James, the return of those dear alumnae was a small miracle. They are all part of the living legacy which binds us together into that special, select group called alumni. Saturday morning. May 14, was the occasion of the Alumni Mass Meeting in Aycock Auditorium. Approximately seven hun- dred alumni from classes ending in 3 and 8 paraded down the aisles to seats designated by brightly colored buttertlies. Many classes sang their class songs as they processed and several carried banners to show their class spirit. The meeting began with the in- duction of officers of the Class of 1983 into the Alumni Associa- Conlinued Commencement ... a beginning tion. On behalf of her class, Veda addressed the crowd with modesty and praise for the University. She closed stating her hope that our class will continue to enhance and support the University as generously as the alumni classes preceding ours. That afternoon seniors joined alumni at the Alumni Mayhem. Alumni from all classes enjoyed refreshments and fellowship and the opportunity to pass along wisdom to seniors about to reach the finish line. That evening Chancellor Moran held his annual reception in Cone Ballroom with an extravagant feast of hors d ' oeuvres provided by Frank DeMark. Outside the ballroom threatening clouds gathered and the wind blew a thunderstorm through campus. Later in the evening I presented our guest speaker, Dr. Barbara Uehling of the University of Missouri at Columbia, with azaleas and chocolates. Apparently she enjoyed the chocolates: early the next morning I found her jogging through campus. Sunday, May 1.5, 1983. A crescendo of joy began as the outstanding seniors and class officers gathered around the foun- tain outside the Greensboro Memorial Coliseum. Tops popped. Champagne poured. We toasted the magic of the moment to a steady rhythm of clicking cameras. With commencement only an hour away we doted like children on holiday. Hugs, smiles, a few tears, and many sentimental moments raised our spirits while more champagne passed into hands which would soon grasp degrees. We moved from the fountain onto the lawn beneath the marquee with its glittering message: " UNC-G COMMENCE- MENT TODAY 10::30 A.M. " Cameras clicked. Champagne poured. Inside the downbeat of the processional signaled the change of mood to dignity and reverence. Hearts fluttered in each of us as we moved with hushed enthusiasm to our seats. Glancing into the crowds we found the faces of those whose hearts swelled with the love and pride which sustained us through our collegiate experiences. The joy was complete as we received confirmation that our loved ones were with us. In the next hour we witnessed routine introductions and pro- ceedings forgotten almost as soon as they were completed. Two speeches offered words of wisdom. Dr. Barbara Uehling encour- aged us with foresight into this age of booming technology and the directions into which it ' s heading. She explained how our education helps us cope with the trends of supertechnology. Mid- way through her address a champagne stopper rocketed toward the platform to the delight and surprise of the crowd. Even Dr. Uehling paused in laughter and the culprits blushed in mischievousness. Dr. Uehling concluded her address reminding us that diamonds are created under pressure; she requested that we become diamonds. Kendra Smith approached the podium bearing the greatest responsibility of any honoree. To address her graduating class and the twelve thousand attending was the final test of her undergraduate service. As though rehearsed even in her sleep every phrase, pause, and inflection was perfect. The audience re- mained hushed with all eyes fixed upon Kendra as she defined the four freedoms Franklin D. Roosevelt declared essential to human existence in our society. I cannot recall another student in my years at UNC-Great prouder or more defensive of freedom than Kendra. Appropriately her address gave focus to the freedoms we take for granted. During her speech I recalled her presentation before the selection committee six weeks prior. At both times she appealed to the feelings of patriotism dwelling deeply within members of the audience. Kendra ' s speech is in- cluded in the pages of this section because of its most important message for posterity and in recognition of her spirit and contributions. One by one each school or college rose. Chancellor Moran pro- nounced the Class of 1983 graduated as a wave of hysterical cheers and shouts rolled from wall to wall. Confetti blurred my vi- sion and continued snowing over our class. In the stands families, friends, and relatives joined in the tumult. 1 recall seeing my sister raising her arms in a victory sign and then a cloud of confet- ti wisped through the air. Around me friends clung to each other. Confetti stuck to the face of one friend whose tears reminded me my face was flushed with moisture and streaming emotion. Visual impressions remain today. Who will forget the mortarboards which read, " PLEASE HIRE ME! " and " THANKS, MOM AND DAD! " ? Who will forget the dance majors who turned pirouettes upon conferral? The benediction concluded and we filed out into the sun ' s radiance and into the arms of our loved ones. Parents delighted in our diplomas. Cameras clicked. And the afternoon unfolded into quiet celebration and the reality of unemployment. The words of Sir Winston Churchill rang through my head as I persevered in finishing this book. Addressing the commencement class of a boys ' preparatory school he stood with serious de- meanor gazing upon his audience. The only words of his address: " Never give up. Never give up. NEVER give up! " Monday, January 2, 1984. Employment. Career satisfaction? Employment, thank God. Career satisfaction can only be ac- curately measured by periods longer than the seven months since commencement. But the completion of this yearbook became another career. Indeed, what began in the summer of 1982 as a tribute to the restoration and preservation of tradition at UNC-Great declined into an ill-fated attempt by October of 1983. Abandoned by its elected editor and facing a multitude of technical complications the tradition of seventy-one years of Pine Needles almost ended. When, in much doubt of its worth as a publication. University Media Board voted to publish the remains, I accepted the challenge to seam together the ragged edges. For the first time in my life I made coffee an absolute essential part of my diet. Gallon by gallon I was supplied with a caffeinic charge keeping my eyelids apart and my nerves stretched from one end of my apartment to the other waking the dust which nor- mally lies asleep. Brownlines, bluelines. and the lines under my eyes gave evidence of progress but most importantaly. hope. Blocks away at the Univeristy dice continued to roll and pessimists spent their energies trying to complicate my work. Between my career and the late hours of yearbook labors I cleared the hurdles and continued running all the way to the Federal Ex- press drop-off office. The 1983 Pine Needles arrived in Dallas, Texas, the following morning. I put the coffee back into the cabinet, the dust went back to sleep, and my full attention re- sumed on my career. The Class of 1983 hopes that future classes will continue to fight to preserve a richer American collegiate tradition. It was our great privilege to witness the advent of the premiere homecoming with our first homecoming queen in ninety-one years. We are thankful for leadership which restores tradition and spirit rather than obliterating it. We look forward to returning to an even greater UNC-Great which offers with equity chances for others to achieve. We salute the plan for development as it maintains the importance of a liberal arts education in the face of supertechnology. We praise the success of Prospectus III for goals never before attempted at UNC-Great. We recognize our roles as alumni of this institution and pledge our loyalty, gifts, and ser- vice. Furthermore, we encourage future classes to follow these fundamentals an d to seize with sincere and strong conviction every opportunity to restore and preserve tradition. Freedom gives birth to opportunities for greatness. We are the people of UNC-Great! Marks C. Lane Vice President Alumni Class of 1983 AJ . - , ,,wl „ JL A 1983 COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS Kendra Leigh Smith " Members of the Class of 1983, faculty, parents, honored guests, and friends of the University . . . So often is the case that people will come to a university hoping that in the future their education will help them to earn more money, receive further promotions in their jobs, or to guarantee that much-desired security. But the true value we gain at a university is the freedoms that a liberal arts education provides us: the freedom that opens our minds to be selective yet objective to new ideas. The freedom that delivers us from the fear of the unknown. The freedom that gives us insight — what we hope will be foresight. The freedom that helps give us the drive and determination to be who we are and who we want to be. President Franklin D. Roosevelt said that there are four essential human freedoms: the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear. And during our studies here at UNC-G we have learned the true meanings of these freedoms. The first freedom, the freedom of speech and expression, is the right to be heard and to hear from others. We can be proud that we allow a broad spectrum of opinion to be heard here at UNC-G rather than refusing to listen to speakers with whom we may disagree. We have avoided invoking a ban such as the recent heckler ' s vetos used at Berkeley and at the University of Minnesota against U.N. Ambassador Jean Kirkpatrick and others. The second freedom, freedom of worship, is the ability to choose who or what will provide answers to the unknown and who or what will guide us in our lives. As we all know, in our nation today there are individuals, both political and religious, who insist that they have all the answers, the only answers. Yet through our study of history and philosophy we have learned of the danger that lies in only allowing one view. We have learned tolerance and respect for differing beliefs. The third freedom, the freedom from want, means equal opportunities, economic safety, and the preservation of civil liberties. About the time we become comfortable with our advances in equality and civil rights something happens to reawaken us to reality. The recent racial problems surrounding the election of Chicago ' s new mayor Harold Washington reminds us of the task ahead, the work we must do to sustain our gains and to push ahead in our fight for social justice. The fourth and final freedom, the freedom from fear, is the right to security and peace. This is perhaps the greatest challenge facing us as graduates, indeed, facing us as citizens of the world. We are assuming responsibility to work for world peace. Freedom of speech and expression. Freedom of worship. Freedom from want. Freedom from fear. These freedoms have been instilled in us through our studies at UNC-G. We, as students, chose a liberal arts education because such an experience develops our abilities and capacities to exercise such concepts. Our success is determined in part by our professors, our mentors. Those who have helped us develop such freedoms also chose to be a part of this educational process. In making this choice, they have opened our minds, as they will open the minds of others, to the world of ideas. They are helping to contribute to the realization and preservation of our freedoms. And we, as students, as parents, as friends, thank these individuals seated in the audience today. So, what is the value of our liberal arts education? Is the answer found in our first job? No. The value of our liberal arts education will far exceed that first job or that high salary or that big promotion. The value of our education is that we have been exposed to the ideas and the freedoms that allow us to survive as people. They allow us to exercise such freedoms with forsight and objectivity, to exercise such freedoms with the care and determination to succeed. It is difficult to find the words to express all we have learned here at UNC-G but perhaps the thoughts can be found in John F. Kennedy ' s words. He spoke to the citizens of America and to the citizens of the world. Those words still echo in this coliseum today. ,„i .u j ■ i j With a good conscience, our only sure reward, with history, the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead that land we love, asking His hlessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God ' s work must truly be our own. ' Thank you. " " Success lies in doing not what others consider to be great, but what you consider to be right. " John Gray This yearbook is dedicated to the Class of 1983. Thanks, Charhe and Jim.
