Our Lady atop the Golden Dome, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the House that Rockne built all stand as testaments to what Notre Dame symbolizes. These images will forever be held in our minds. However, how will we define our time spent here? Notre Dame stands as a " pillar of higher education " which is inte- gral to our lives and our future. Perhaps, Notre Dame is a cornerstone in our lives. The cornerstone cap- tures the essence and purpose of the building, thus revealing its fundamental importance. Conveying to the passersby, or browser, the defining founda- tion of Notre Dame. The stateliness and tradition that lies in the foundation of Notre Dame is reflected in the student body and our experience. Cornerstone A group of students sit in awe at the dawning of a new morning on the campus of Notre Dame. From this location the sun can be seen rising behind the Golden Dome and the Basilica. Photo c Photo by: Laura PI a quiet refuge Whether tlje paths are lined with foot-high snow- drifts or spring tulips, the faithful visitor never ceases to venture to the cavern we call the Grotto. The luminous glow of the hundreds of candles attract many people to this beautiful place overlooking the lake. For the past 101 years the Grotto has been an unchanging place of rest and peace for the friendly visitor, nostalgic alum and those who call Notre Dame home. Many find the Grotto is a place to offer hopes and prayers. During times of struggle and pain one feels the spirit of Notre Dame rallying all around you, in the encompassing brilliance of the Grotto. This everlasting refuge of quiet prayer and reflection will remain in our hearts forever. Cornerstone Ml Never a moment goes by when there is not a lit candle at the Grollo. A hopeful heart finds solace and peace in the prayers and radiance that is emit- ted. For many this is their favorite place on cam- P us - Ptu ioby:UufaPcttUe signs cX- i of life Throughout the campus of the University of Notre Dame, there are symbols of the spiritu- ality upon which this school was founded. These are the signs of life, reminders of where we came from and where we long to go, where our hearts lie and our motivations begin. One ' s spirituality is very unique and personal. Our steps are guided on the specific paths that we travel. The direction is not always known, but our hearts lead us by faith towards the final goal; trusting in and holding tight to the hand that guides us. Cornerstone The statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus stands cov- ered by a canopy of fall leaves. With arms open wide, he welcomes all to enter into His grace. MIMIIt Photo by: Mark Garzoi sheer beauty The Notre Dame campus is the second largest tour- ist destination in Indiana. Visitors often mix with students as fhey pilgrimage to see the Golden Dome. Certainly the legendary " House that Rockne Built " is a major attraction. For students, this is home. Students cross clover green quads, lined with ancient oaks and infant tulips to reach stately dormitories once home to legends. All this becomes a daily ex- perience. Yet simple sights such as a well-known, noble sycamore near the Grotto make it impossible not to recognize the sheer beauty which surrounds us. None of us will forget the collegiate feel of watch- ing the ivy turn chameleon colors while shuffling through autumn ' s harvest of leaves. Truly, we have a beautiful home. IIMIII Cornerstone Many stand in awe at the majesty displayed through the leaves of this sycamore tree. One can only imagine the river of humanity that has passed by it on the way to and from the Grotto and the Basilica. around the world Father Sorin was one of the few men brave enough to believe in the future of a tiny community in fro- zen Indiana Other religious orders refused to found a school in South Bend because it was too cold and no one would ever attend it. Admittedly this was half true. Father Sorin proved them wrong. By dreaming dreams larger than possible, he built a school which has outlived his dream. The Univer- sity of Notre Dame has become a cornerstone of Catholic academia and now draws students from all over the world. Their Notre Dame education will become the cornerstone of their adult lives and hope- fully will inspire them to dream dreams beyond pos- sibility. 1 Cornerstone Both the globe in Hurley and the statue of Father Sorin are reminders that Notre Dame caters to stu- dents from all over the world. journey of life Too many paths have a direct goal and end. Some- times it is j$st best to start walking. Notre Dame is a journey that has no specific start or finish. The Notre Dame community includes the four year old dressed as a Fighting Irish cheerleader for a football game and the Editor of the 1 934 Dome yearbook. Neither has just begun or finished their journey. As we experience our college years it is important to realize that one singular goal may not be the best choice. A job or master ' s degree may not be the final destination. Perhaps we should simply begin our path at Notre Dame and realize that the importance of the journey will be discovered along the way. Cornerstone The beauty of creation is found throughout the Notre Dame campus. Whether it is a tree covered path around St. Joe ' s lake or the Brown-Eyed Susans found in the spring, there is always something to catch one ' s eye. 7 :e mini Foundation cl life A foundation is that on which one builds. Founded in 1842, Notre Dame is a solid basis for student life. However, our lives are not built simply upon aca- demics. What happens outside the classroom is as important as that which takes place inside. From quarter dogs at LaFortune to late night Stonehenge runs, campus life is everywhere. Notre Dame cam- pus life fosters a spirit which grows among students. This spirit is embodied in the moment at each home football game when the entire student body locks arms and collectively sings the alma mater. Campus life is the driving force which brings us together. It is found at the grotto, on the quad and in the dorm room. By interacting with one another, we become one body united in many forms. 1 4 Cornerstone Students take the opportunity to enjoy the warm weather of summer and fall. It is not unusual to see people sleeping on the quad, studying or playing frisbee. Cornerstone by Erin Moak " T " T 7 Tarm weather at Notre JL I Dame is so rare and T V short-lived that stu- dents strove to reap its benefits in the first month of school. North and South Quads were filled with Domers relieving stress by tossing footballs, frisbees, or even shot-puts around. Cramming sessions for the first tests of the year took place on university blankets or futons that had been dragged out of the dorms. Some even donned swimsuits to expose as much of their body as decently (or indecently) possible to the sun ' s rays. Runners took full ad- vantage of the temperatures by jogging around the lakes. The majority of these were upper- classmen, wise to the ways of winter in northern Indiana, and determined to soak up as much sunshine as possible before the clouds of autumn and winter ar- rived. Stepan Center and its surrounding fields were filled to capacity, even in the evening, during the brief warm weather period of the school year. Interhall football squads made good use of the balmy tempera- tures to polish their skills, and the basketball courts swarmed with shirtless male students get- ting an early start on Bookstore Get it while you can in Indiana Basketball practice, or just play- ing pickup games. The " beach " volleyball courts at the facility were almost always in use. Domers were not the only ones to take advantage of the weather, however; the alumni and loyal fans who swarmed onto campus for football weekends still dressed in their traditional plaid, but opted for shorts in- stead of pants. Even as fall ap- proached, and the temperatures began to fall into the fifties and sixties, the number of students on the quads or at Stepan in- creased instead of diminished. There was a sense of urgency that dictated to all that the seemingly interminable winter months were close at hand and they had to catch the rays while they lasted. Like many students, this group of younj men are trying to soak up as much o( the warm afternoon as possible by jogJ ging across campus.

A Wa, " awa Photo by: Laura Petellc Campus Life 1 by Kristv Katzrnann Bob believes students are best T he faint sound of music grew louder as the band made its way to the stadium, the students be- came restless in the stands, and the soft rumbling in the tunnel turned into an explosion as the football team rushed onto the field. It was that time of year again, football season. Football season is a time of unity, spirit, and growth for the university. " Notre Dame football is not re- ally about the game itself, it ' s about bonding with friends, shar- ing with families, showing sup- port for one another, and enjoy- ing Notre Dame, " explained se- nior Sarah Katzrnann. The 1997 football sea- son began a " new era " in the his- tory of Notre Dame football with a new coach, new goals, new values, and new approaches. Coach Bob Davie kicked-offthe football season with changes in- tended to favor the student body. One major change was the relo- cation of the pep rallies to the stadium with the hopes of giv- ing the students back the best seats in the house. Despite Coach Davie ' s attempts to increase student spirit, some fans felt differently. " It ' s disappointing to see all diose empty seats, not to mention the fact that the acoustics are not very good in the stadium. It was easier to get more spirited in the Joyce Center because it ' s smaller and gets noisier; you just couldn ' t help getting psyched, " said sophomore Jamie Kuhn. Don ' t be fooled, how- ever, into thinking that the stu- dents were totally lacking in the spirit department. Students con- tinually tried to evoke spirit, en- thusiasm and creativity. Knott Hall indulged in a barbecue prior to each Friday night pep rally in order to learn new cheers and pro- mote dorm unity and spirit. Cavanaugh Hall sported vibrant green tee shirts at the pep rallies in hopes of catching Coach Davie ' s attention. Keough Hall had a doughnut run the morn- ing of every home game for all | early risers. No matter how stu- dents chose to spend their foot- ball weekends, they were sure to create memories that would last a lifetime.

Each dorm searched for new and innovative ways for recognition at the rallies. | 1 8 Campus Life r r oach Davie welcomed the student body into a new era of Notre Dame history.

People from all over are aware of the Fighting Irish. Many people attend games only to experience the loyalty ex- pressed by the crowds because game days on campus are incred- ible. Nothing beats a Notre Dame football game. There is a tremendous spirit shared by ev- eryone lucky enough to pack into the stadium. Fortunately, the fun be- gins long before fans even reach the stadium. Parents, alumni, students, and fans all join in the pre- game festivities across cam- pus. People from coast to coast gather in the parking lots and on the practice fields as early as nine o ' clock in the morning to hang out, reminisce, and prepare for the game of the day. Most Notre Dame fans agree that no other school quite captures the emotion or spirit shared on Saturday fall mornings at Notre Dame. From the trailer homes and buses adorned in Notre Dame decor to the creative " air toys " marking specific tailgaters, Notre Dame fans defi- nitely know how to have fun. In addition to tailgating, numerous campus groups spon- sored fundraising booths. By selling brats and hot dogs on the quad, students have the oppor- tunity to participate in the fes- tivities, and raise funds for their residence hall or organization. Although tailgating is the most popular pre-game form of entertainment, many fans also partake in more traditional festivities unique to Notre Dame. Before each game, the football players attend a mass, praying for victory. Fans may also reflect in prayer at the Grotto. After the players march to the football stadium, the Irish Guard and band prepare to lead the crowd to the stadium. s tudents dive into the veggies and orange juice near the stadium to get motivated for the afternoon game.

" . ..Variations of this familiar phrase floating about campus prove that Domers have perfected the quirky art of scoping out the opposite sex. For the single crowd of students, the entire campus seems a great place to check people out. Whether searching for food in the dining hall or sauntering into class at DeBartolo Hall, we are constantly in the eye of prospective mates. Scoping is present in everyday life just as sleep, meals, and classes are. Everyone has been a victim at sometime or another. We are indoctrinated into our scoping rituals freshman year during the infamous Graffiti Dance and handed our Freshman Registers, AKA Dog Books, as guide maps to the sport. It is bound to continue throughout the remainder of college life. By the time senior year rolls around, a majority of the student body can probably confess to hav- ing secretly carried a torch for someone they have spotted around campus at some time or another. Often among groups of friends, crushes assume names related to their interaction with the scoper. These names, such as " Chem-Lab Boy, " seem to be in a secret code reminiscent of junior- high. In a light atmosphere, friends may use nicknames to dis- cuss advances or failed attempts on that cute guy or girl whose name somehow seems less signifi- cant than their presence. The many students who are already involved in relationships on campus, or have a " Home- Town Honey, " have no real need to partake in such an activity as scoping. A large majority of stu- dents hope to find their future spouse here at Notre Dame, per- haps the first person to walk around the lake with as the old superstition goes. The flip-side of scoping has benefits because al- though you have a significant other, it never hurts to look as long as you do not touch. How- ever, ther are always those stu- dents who have neither the time nor energy to put forth in a rela- tionship. The ladies on campus seem to continually flock towards attractive men in awe and wonder. (Or, at least, the men or campus would like to think they possess such magnetism.)

For every on- campus student, this becomes a small piece of the university they can call their own. Many stu- dents choose to remain in their assigned dorm throughout their stay at Notre Dame. It becomes the place where they can fully ex- press themselves through per- sonal decoration. During the first week of school, dorm fur- nishings such as couches, pieces of lofts, chairs and computers crowd die hallways while the resi- dents arrange their new little habitats. Lynette Paczkowski, a freshman from Cavanaugh, per- sonalized her room " ...with pic- tures of my friends, my puppy, and my calendar. " With the help of the LaFortune fall poster sale, most students cover their walls and ceilings with various images of movies, sports, and works of art. Items such as cardboard cut- outs of Star Wars ' characters, Albert Einstein, or Marilyn Monroe can be found in the rooms of the more nostalgic resi- dents. Living in the residence halls, students can also take ad- vantage of dorm facilities such as kitchens, laundry rooms, and study rooms in order to make themselves at home. On week- ends, hall party rooms which seem to have a capacity of fif- teen people can be crammed with over a hundred students trying to escape their books for a night. Parties help various dorms ex- hibit their intense spirit as chants of " We are Zahm Hall, " " We are Alumni, " and (as Aubree Dill, a freshman exclaims) " Farley is the Finest! " crowd the air. Living in the dorms allows Notre Dame students to personalize their liv- ing space, take advantage of dorm facilities, and rally together as a close-knit community under the greater umbrella of the Notre Dame family. Study rooms are quiet places where stu- dents can concentrate on their work and study for exams. When the dorm room becomes too distracting, study rooms provide an atmosphere to get busy and hit the books. These two students also consider their study room a good place to show off and act goofy.

Campus Life 2. by Eric Yuva A centerpiece with symbolism A he War Memorial Foun- tain, affectionately JL known by students and faculty as Stonehenge, has be- come a central landmark of the Notre Dame campus. Located between the Hesburgh Library and LaFortune Student Center near North Quad, Stonehenge is a favorite for visitors to the cam- pus and an area where students can relax and study. The memo- rial is dedicated to the nearly 500 Notre Dame alumni who gave their lives for their country and peace in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. " Pro Patria et Pace " , or " For Our Country and Peace " , is inscribed on one of the four sides of the fountain with the three wars occupying the The War Memorial Fountain is often utilized by organizations on campus to hold demonstrations or rallies. On September 15th, 1997 these ROTC cadets held a demonstration at the fountain to re- member American veterans for POW MIA Observance Day. other three sides individually. Stonehenge is also a place where students can let loose and celebrate. Students can often be seen wading and running through the water or pouring soap throughout the fountain. As Joe Ribando, a Zahm fresh- man remembers, " During ori- entation weekend, I was one of the freshman who was dunked in the fountain during the " Battle of the Sexes " contest with Farley. Celebrating around the fountain made me feel like a true member of the Notre Dame community and I realized how proud I was to be part of this tradition. " Stonehenge has defi- nitely become an attraction at Notre Dame much like the Dome, the Hesburgh Library, and the Sacred Heart of the Ba- silica. Notre Dame alumni who gave their lives for their country will always be remembered through this structure.

Vs ,-v- Campus Life 2 | by Kristy Katzmann Aesthetics shrouded in controversy Students learn to love and accept " Touchdown Jesus " and " First Down Moses " before even setting foot on the Notre Dame campus. These works of art are such a novelty around campus that quite a stir was created when the new stadium was built and the leg- endary " Touchdown Jesus " was no longer visible through its goal posts. However, this controversy seems mi- nor in comparison to the recently stirred- up subject of modern art on campus. Many students complain that mod- ern art does not belong at Notre Dame. " I really like the traditional image our campus portrays because it makes Notre Dame a unique place and I feel that the modern art distracts from the beauty of our campus, " explains sophomore Eliza Hommel. Others feel that this new art is an important pan of our campus because it represents the changing ideas which are increasingly becoming a part of Notre Dame. The modernization of our uni- versity, evident in the new stadium, new dorms, and a revamped mission statement, prepares Notre Dame for the twenty-first century. The modern art first arrived in 1994 when the Campus Sculpture Commit- tee launched a Public Sculpture Project which brought 30 works of art created by 25 different sculptors to our cam- pus. Since Notre Dame is a school which draws its student body from coast to coast, particular artists and their sculp- tures were carefully selected to represent works from across the nation. A part of who we are as a university involves a blending of the new and the old to create new traditions. For the promoters of modern an on campus, the prevalence of these works show our will- ingness to accept new ideas and changes, while the traditional an, including reli- gious pieces, allow us to hold on to our strong traditional foundations.

In fact, one of the quirkiest phenomenons here on campus is the way in which Notre Dame apparel has virtually become an unofficial " dress code. " The " ND Uniform " can be found in almost every student ' s closet: a white Notre Dame cap, an Irish sweatshirt or t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. Many stu- dents who thought they had left the days of uniforms behind at their high schools, find themselves wearing the ND uniform because of their spirit and pride. Since Notre Dame is a world-famous learning institution with some of the most talented students in the nation, is it not natural to desire an ND on every single article of clothing? The Hammes Bookstore, Notre Dame ' s official cloth- ing supplier, offers a wide variety of ap- i mblaxened on the shirts of these two women is the interlocking ND. They ear their school logo with pride. parel that will suit the clothing needs of every Notre Dame fan that comes to campus. The store offers everything from mesh shorts and t-shirts, to sweatshirts, hats, and jackets. With the automatic charge feature on the student ID cards, it can be difficult to prevent ND apparel from taking over one ' s ward- robe. Thanks to the many activities, clubs, sports, and events offered at Notre Dame, an overwhelming number of t- shirts are added to many wardrobes. This clothing is intended to commemo- rate, distinguish and celebrate die myriad of student opportunities. In addition to the famous " CBLD " t-shirts sported by every student who uses the long dis- tance service, " The Shirt " put out an- nually by the Student Alumni Associa- tion is a definite staple in the student wardrobe. Traditionally, students wear " The Shirt " to the first football game to show their school spirit. The abundance of J. Crew mer- chandise on campus might even lead an outsider to believe that Notre Dame is a university of preppies. Regardless of clothing stereotypes, most students [ agree that comfort is the name of the game. While expressions of unique per- sonal style are bound to turn a few heads, most anything is accepted. _ Campus Life Photo by: Alison Main Th k p Ihis cluster of students sport jeans and khaki pants which proliferate on cam- pus.

Whether one goes to mass at the Sacred Heart Basilica, takes time to reflect and pray in the peaceful calm of the Grotto, or attends mass in the residence halls, members of the Notre Dame community are never at a loss of places to witness the spirituality of this Catholic university. One of the popular ways stu- dents celebrate their faith is by attend- ing liturgies in the dorm chapels on Sunday. After a long weekend of relax- ing, partying, and studying, students can choose to start off the week by at- G rasping hands in prayer, these mem- bers of the student body worship together at the mass in celebration of the official opening of the school year, held at the Joyce Center. tending mass with their friends in the dorm. Many dorms welcome a rotation of visiting priests and enhance their lit- urgies with choral voices, instrumental musicians, student lectors, and Eucha- ristic ministers. As a result, the clergy and students often form close bonds as they celebrate together in a more inti- mate setting. Often dressed in t-shirts, sweat pants, or pajamas, students enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of the resi- dence hall masses. For many dorms, a highlight of mass is die musical element that helps to unite everyone in song. The women of Pasquerilla East are proud of their strong choir and talented musicians. " The music makes everyone more in- volved, " claims Susan Happel, a senior member of die P.E. choir. This spiritual and musical involvement is particularly felt during the " Our Father " as every- one joins hands and lifts their voices in song. The spiritual ties that bond die Notre Dame community provide a sense of family that is irreplaceable. Through praying and celebrating to- gether, students can explore their reli- gion and rejoice in their faith. Such fulfillment can provide personal strength and guidance during the] whirlwind experience of college life. |32 Campus Life Photo by: Laura Pettllc onk Malloy and members of the Notre Dame administrative clergy preside during the welcome back mass held in September. tudent lectors provide an element of student involvement that really make the dorm masses a community .ill.

Campus Life _ by Erin Moak Athletic competition for everyone " T " VT " Thile more than eighty per- JL I cent of students at Notre T V Dame played a Varsity sport in high school, the percentage of stu- dents who participate in Varsity athlet- ics here is significantly less. Most stu- dents simply do not have the time or the ability to play on a Varsity team at the collegiate level. To retain the ben- efits of sports, however, many members of the athletic population manage to fit Interhall sports into their lives. These give students the opportunity to polish up their athletic abilities, stay fit, and relieve the stress that can come with the intense academic rigors of Notre Dame life. Participation in Interhall com- petition can span a wide range of activi- ties, including football, basketball, base- ball, Softball, volleyball, and soccer. Though the football and basketball competitions usually attract the great- est number of participants, growing sports such as broomball, ice hockey, and ultimate frisbee are beginning to accu- mulate significant rosters. The compe- tition between dorms can be vicious, especially as the season draws to a close. Even residents who do not participate turn out to Stepan Field or the Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center to cheer on dieir dorm-mates. In this way, Interhall sports helped promote dorm spirit among fans who turned up wear- ing dorm colors and chanting their fa- vorite cheers. Football was one of the first sports of the Interhall season, and it was widely anticipated. Sign-up sheets posted around the individual dorms filled up quickly and practices were fre- quent and demanding. Once the games started, the intensity stepped up a few notches. Dorms competed not only for prestige but for the honor of playing a championship game in the newly reno- vated Notre Dame stadium. After the close of football sea- son, when the weather turned colder, most Interhall sports moved indoors. Despite the extra effort necessary to par- ticipate, many students still braved the elements to walk to Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center or Stepan Center for practices and games. For these ath- letic students, the benefits derived from competing were well worth the effort. j| Playing together on a team can be an oportunity to really get to know other residents.

Opportunities to get off campus are treasured, espe- cially by freshmen, who are not allowed to have cars. After freshman year, many students soon tire of South Bend and venture past the cornfields into the great wide open. These road trips are planned for a variety of reasons: football games, breaks, visiting family or friends, shop- ping, or even for no reason other than a break from the monotony. The Michigan, Purdue, and Pittsburgh football games were close enough to campus that loyal students used whatever means they could find to get to them. Student Activities spon- sored buses to the Michigan and Purdue football games. Though the Pittsburgh game was farther away, fans managed to work their way down to the stadium. Students with cars packed as many of their friends into them as possible, while others turned to more cost-efficient al- ternatives. They rented U-Haul trucks or other miniature moving vans and piled people into the back for a minimal On the road to. .somewhere Sponsored by Student Activities, buses from campus provides a fun and efficient way for many students to travel in order to support the Irish at away football games. fee. " The word ' carpool ' took on a whole new meaning, " joked freshman Laura Duman. Breaks are probably the most common times for road trips. In the weeks before fall, Christmas, or spring breaks, signs begging for rides home were posted all over the residence halls and ads were placed in the Classified section of the Observer. Chipping in for gas money can be much cheaper for stu- dents than buying a plane ticket to get to a hometown only hours away. As Christmas approached, and students exhausted the offerings of Uni- versity Park Mall, they looked elsewhere for shopping alternatives. Michigan City, the home of the outlet stores, re- mained a common spot, but Chicago was the favorite shopping metropolis. Some students took buses or trains to reach the Windy City, while luckier ones drove or found a mobilized friend willing to spend the day downtown with them. A day in the city can be a refreshing change from the flat landscape of Michiana. Whatever the reason for a road trips, they are always a much anticipated part of college life. Mishaps such as empty tanks of gas or flat tires may hap- pen, but they only serve to make the trip that much more memorable.

Most of us know the long-standing popular meaning behind the acronym " S.Y.R. " but today these popular events seem to signify " South Bend Year- round Relief. " Around campus, most people have a collection of horror stories, as well as exciting tales and embarrassing mo- ments all involving these dramatic ex- amples of the Notre Dame dating scene. Whether it is a formal or an SYR, dances at Notre Dame are a big deal. Preparation and planning goes into each dance months before the big day. Each dorm competes to outdo one other by attempting to come up widi die most original and entertaining dieme possible. Several dorms around campus have achieved reputations for putting on some of the best dances of the year. Everyone has heard about Alumni ' s " Wake " in which they parade their Rec- tor around campus in a coffin and throw roses to the ladies. A few dorms have begun to take advantage of the warm fall weather to host outdoor dances, under the romantic light of the moon. Christmas is also an exciting time of the year for dances, especially in Morrissey Hall, which celebrates die sea- son with its annual Christmas Dance. Enhanced with a fantastic light display and an after-dance breakfast, it is defi- nitely a memorable yule-tide celebration. In the Spring, many dances attempt to welcome back the warm weather with springtime themes. With regard to personal dance preparation, the dance process usually begins long before the actual event. Finding a date can be one of the first priorities. In order to get a date, some students opt for random set-ups, while others work up the nerve to ask that " Philo Hottie " who diey may have never had an excuse to talk to before. Once this stressful mission is accomplished the fun begins. For Saturday night dances, many students get up early to start deco- rating their hallways or spend the day envisioning how the night will unfold. Students prone to extensive primping may spend hours showering, styling their hair, painting their nails, shining dieir shoes, and getting dieir outfits just right. Finally, die evening arrives, along with your date and another interesting story in the history of your social life.

Fresh- man year, fate and a computer program decide who will be one ' s living compan- ions. After that, almost anything goes, except maybe the crossing of gender lines. For one group of on-campus stu- dents, however, the roommate issue is irrelevant. These people possess the cov- eted and sometimes hard to obtain single. For some dorms, singles are few and far between, while in others, they are quite common. In Lewis Hall, there are only four designated singles, thus a high room pick as well as senior status are necessities to get one. In Badin Hall, however, a large percentage of the rooms are singles allowing many women there o ne of the benefits of living in a single can be the increased space to kick back and read a book. to have one as soon as sophomore year. Resident Assistants also live in singles, adding another incentive to an already competitive position. Once the single is secured, how- ever, a period of adjustment must take place. Occupants may find themselves talking to random objects in the room late at night because they are used to having another person there. If former roommates were popular, the blinking light may not be so busy, and the friendly stream of traffic may die down. Despite these drawbacks, many of the advantages of a single are well worth the occasional loneliness. For senior Rick Peplinski in Knott Hall, having a single means being able to watch television naked, or at least scantily clothed. Other single-dwellers cite privacy advantages, such as not hav- ing to worry about being intruded upon when with a significant other. Talking on the phone at 3:00 a.m. in the morn- ing, listening to Hansen if one chooses, and being noisy at the sink are all trea- sures that " singles " can enjoy. Senior Stacey Gilk in Lewis Hall sums up her feelings about having a single: " The best part about having a single is the freedom to do whatever I want, in my own space, yet my friends are only a few doors away. " |44 Campus Life Phoco by: Katy Gallagher his senior from Pangborn Hall finds that her small, but private, single is a great place to spread out her belong- ings and hang out in her own space. unior Jerry Wisnc takes advantage of the peaceful quiet of living in a single to get some work done on his computer.

For instance, Farley Hall ' s " Backwards " SYR, the RYS, was cancelled due to lack of interest. Farley-ites shied away from this oppor- tunity to " dress crazily and go wild. " Junior Jim Arkedis, not too disappointed with the cancelled dance says, " My date and her friends had a dance party any- way, and we tried to do the RYS. I was surprised that more people didn ' t get in the spirit... " Besides the dorm sponsored SYRs and formals, campus organizations host dances as well. WSND tradition- ally holds a Swing Dance, featuring a Chicago " Big Band " style orchestra. For all those Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers wanna-bes out there, the night is a dream come true. South Bend residents as well as Notre Dame students dance the night away to the tunes of Glenn Miller and Frank Sinatra.

From the newly renovated stadium to the bigger and better bookstore, construction on campus keeps Notre Dame in limbo between the old and the new.

The " Renovation Plans " for South Dining Hall, prominently displayed at the building ' s entrance, give a visual glimpse of the soon-to-be-altered din- ing atmosphere.

Up- perclassmen, however, have a choice. While many choose to remain a part of the community they have built in their residence halls, others feel stifled by the less attractive restrictions of communal living. After a few years of dwelling un- der the watchful eyes of the Dome, many juniors and seniors decide to pack up their belongings and move away from the world of parietals, rectors, and Du-Lac. According to the Office of In- stitutional Research, approximately 1 ,300 undergraduate students lived off of the Notre Dame campus this year. Many students who make the choice to move off campus do so be- cause they prefer the benefits and free- doms of " real world " housing. Com- pared to the often cramped living quar- ters of die dorms, off campus apartments offer extra privacy, living space, and the comforts of a real home. Another ben- efit of living off campus is obvious at the hour of parietals, when students need not endure an exodus of the op- posite sex from their living rooms. Widiin the limits of tenant contracts and die laws if Indiana, off-campus students are free to make dieir own choices about meals, visitors, and parties. In addition to their off-campus liberation, students inevitably find themselves burdened with new responsibilties.

These students enjoy the extra space of having their own living room. bv Katy Gallagher Students find freedom off-campus pleting household chores, and paying for rent and utilities. Off-campus stu- dents must be responsible enough to keep up with bills, and mature enough to handle tensions between roommates on their own. They must also organize their time well when driving back and forth to campus, rather dian simply hik- ing across the quad. Seniors who move off-campus often find an adjustment necessary to life without the community of which they have been a part for the past few years. Many students maintain ties to their old residence halls by returning for weekly mass or occasionally stopping by to visit friends. In many ways, the off- campus community also bands together to take on the character of its own resi- dence hall. Off-campus athletes form many teams for interhall competition as a way to continue a favorite tradition of the Notre Dame community. This year, students also held an Off-Campus For- mal as an alternative social event for the community. Though life down the road from the Dome requires some extra ef- fort and adjustment, most of those who make the choice to move off-campus find that the freedom of their new lifestyle provides a fun and worthwhile experience. 130 Campus Life T j , ving without a meal plan can be a little more work, but many students find that they enjoy the selection of prepar- ing their own meals.

While Notre Dame ' s Dining Halls may lack the daredevils, elephants, and trapeze artists found at a real circus, Food Services does go all out for this theme meal, putting much committee planning and prepa- ration into the menu and decorations. Menu choices typically include " fun foods " such as candy apples, dinosaur- shaped chicken nuggets, curly fries, snow cones and Twinkies. Many Din- ing Hall employees even contribute to the festivities by arriving in costume. The idea behind Circus Lunch is that the circus is a celebration of life and the human spirit. Clowns are meant to make people laugh, bringing quick smiles to the faces of spectators. When Circus Lunch arrive s in South Bend during die fall midterm crunch, students who may have felt the urge to abandon their books and join the circus can relax upon discovery that it has come to them instead. The weirdness of Circus Lunch can provide just the variety that many students need to help them recover from the stress of long days. Though Circus Lunch remains a beloved tradition in the hearts of many Is this the Dining Hall? Happening upon an unexpected theme meal can be a mix- ture of shock, exhilaration and dread. North Dining Hall takes on a whole new live- lihood during the ever-popular Circus Lunch. students, die clowns, balloons, and blar- ing calliope music have been known to cause dread among others. One Notre Dame Food Services administrator attests to the general popularity of the meal, but admits that Circus Lunch has been known to elicit mixed reactions, includ- ing some unfavorable reviews from the student body. While some students mark their daily shillelaghs and antici- pate the event for weeks, others arrive unexpectedly at the Dining Hall, only to be disappointed when their student I.D. is scanned by Chuckles the Clown instead of the usual Dining Hall em- ployee. Senior Angie Sower, who inten- tionally missed this year ' s Circus Lunch, describes the dining experience as " the circus gone beserk. " There is no doubting the bi- zarre quality of Circus Lunch, which of- ten tests the boundary line between what might be considered fun, and what is simply frightening. Whether stu- dents love it or hate it, Circus Lunch is probably here to stay, adding another bizarre chapter to the epic experience of communal dining. If nothing else, as proven by Notre Dame students who fill their backpacks with Cracker Jack boxes and Twinkies, Circus Lunch might be weird, but it is a great oppor- tunity to get free stuff. 132 Campus Life he zany side of Circus Lunch is often pparent in the tell-tale facial expres- ions of students.

Fresh- man Melissa Gomez from Las Cruces, New Mexico, stated, " I was definitely not prepared for the winter. I didn ' t even bring gloves. " Most students soon realized that layering is an important part of stay- ing toasty warm throughout the win- ter. Unfortunately, once you pile on layer after layer to go outside and bear the cold, you may soon face the task of undressing all the layers that required so much time and effort to put on. Not only can the appearance of thick cloth- ing layers be noted among Notre Dame students during the winter season, but many students also carry around mugs filled with hot chocolate or tea, which help to warm them up on the inside. Aside from the customary warming techniques, the winter season at Notre Dame offers many opportuni- ties to continue traditions.

To complete these long hikes within the short passing period between classes re- quires swift feet and a light bookbag. Unfortunately, the average student nei- ther has the speed nor the load to get the job done. A quicker way to travel to class is by golf cart. The golf carts are pro- vided by the Office for Students with Disabilities. Ill or injured students re- quiring assistance are offered diis service. The rides are free of charge but only available to students in need. As of now, there are six passenger carts helping dis- abled students. While chronically tardy students may dream of the day when everyone has a golf cart of his own, the prospects seem rather unlikely, despite numerous requests.

This notto, frequently used to describe the academic and social atmosphere here at Notre Dame, also seems to reflect the student body ' s general attitude toward physical fitness. Notre Dame students find a variety of creative and fun ways to remain physi- cally active. While busy class schedules and demanding workloads may make it dif- ficult to find the time to exercise on a regular basis, most Notre Dame students recognize the importance of physical fit- ness to general health and wellness. Sophomore Rebecca Mitsch, a fitness buff, says, " I think it comes from the Notre Dame mentality to be well- balanced. " She explained that an exer- cise session at " the Rock " , officially the Knute Rockne Memorial Building, pro- vides her with the opportunity to es- cape the pressures of school work, re- lieve stress, and meet people outside the classroom setting. For students like Mitsch who want to stay in shape, there is no short- age of exercise facilities on campus. Stu- dents have access to a vast assortment of cardiovascular and strength training equipment at the Joyce Center and Loftus, as well as free weights, indoor and outdoor tracks, tennis courts and two swimming pools at Rolfs Aquatic Center and " the Rock " .

In addition to sessions at " the Rock " , several dorms offer aerobics classes, led by specially trained Notre Dame student instructors. Jenny Phillips, RecSports Fitness Coordinator says of the program, " I think it ' s a really good way for students to learn more about fitness and, if they ' re enthusiastic about it, to pass on what diey ' ve learned to other students. " RecSports representatives of- ten visit dorms to give informative pre- sentations on fitness, offer various classes and workshops and give students the chance to think about ways to fit a healthy workout into their schedules. For those who do not enjoy early morning jogs or sweating on the Stairmaster, Notre Dame offers plenty of other ways for students to maintain physical fitness while interacting with odiers.

The integrity of the Notre Dame student body is expressed dirough weird study habits and in the ways we handle stress. It is not uncommon for students to confine themselves to their dorms and bury themselves in their books and notes for days on end. Other students burn offstress by breaking away from their books to take a jog or play football. Students each have their own unique study habits, which help them maintain concentration, relieve stress, and stay up late to cram in every last bit of information. Finals week gives many students the opportunity to come to- gether in study groups in order to attack a common enemy. Those lucky enough to find a quiet study carrel at the library may camp there for days on end, even holding their place with books when they must leave for meals or showers. When students really feel the need to get the most out of their study- ing, caffeine can seem more important than oxygen. Late at night, the smell of coffee fills die hallways of residence halls, the Papa John ' s delivery man runs from dorm to dorm, and six packs of soda and calorie-filled snack foods such as donuts and chocolate bars can come in handy. Matt Bradley, a junior from Alumni Hall, says, " I snack on cookies, drink Mountain Dew, and open my text books frequently. I have no schedule to follow, I just do what I feel like doing. " Late in finals week, after sev- eral sleepless nights, many students tend to exhibit signs of severe stress-overload and brain numbness. But, by the time Friday afternoon rolls around, the dreaded finals end, and the sleepy eyed students happily lug their suitcases home. The Notre Dame student body has survived another semester. Lisa Sutton, a freshman from Breen-Phillips adds, " The only good part about finals week is the long break afterward. " B ottles of Sprite and packages of Skittles help students survive the endless nights of studying during Finals Week.

Late at night, snacks and friends often make the studying process more bearable.

The Band is one of the largest groups on campus IMIMMMIl f Yrt ' Unity o Phoios by: Amanda Bauer Building Unity is existing in the state of being one, where the whole combines all of its parts. This basic element is certainly characteristic of Notre Dame. Father Jim Lies clearly stated this concept during his homily, " Notre Dame is much more than academ- ics. It is about establishing relationships and special bonds with your fellow classmates. Notre Dame is about building unity in the hearts of those you sur- round yourself with. " Unity is formed in many ways, namely, through the various organizations offered to students on this campus. These clubs and organiza- tions join students in an atmosphere that ignites strong friendships and interaction. Cornerstone 651 Student Government The Students ' Voice It ' s 2:30 a.m. on Friday, and you and your friends are stuck in the cold without a ride. The situation looks grim, but " Wait! " you say, " Let ' s call Saferide! " As the familiar van pulls up with the ever-smiling driver at the wheel, your friends let out joyful cheers and you know you have saved the day... You have a 12 page paper due tomorrow but your room- mate has decided to have a toga party in your room, and you fear for your already suffering GPA. But you suddenly remember that now you can hook up your laptop in LaFortune, where you dili- gently work into the night. ..What about those cool megaphones at the first pep rally? Many Notre Dame students may not realize it, but the hard-work- ing members of the Student Gov- ernment did all this and much more. President Matt Griffin and Vice President Erek Nass devote a total of 40-60 unpaid hours each week, in their com- mitment to making Student Government a strong voice for the Notre Dame student body. Student Government coordinates all student groups and organiza- tions on campus, and works through various committees to represent and promote students ' interests in virtually all areas. Through the representation of the Student Computing, Finan- cial Aid and Dining Hall Advi- sory Committees, students have the opportunity to express their ideas and opinions about various issues affecting them daily. The Diversity Council and Gender Issues Department address con- cerns which have an important impact on the entire Notre Dame community. Other committees have consulted with RecSports about the new facilities currently under construction, and are working on proposals for the cre- ation of a new student center and more social space. Student Government is the only officially recognized rep- resentative to Student Affairs and the University Board of Trustees. As President Griffin explains, " What sets Student Government apart from any other group onj campus is that when it comes time to listen to the students, we ' re the voice they listen to.

The Notre Dame chap- ter of the NAACP sponsors many events and activities throughout the year. The NAACP began the year with its annual membership drive. It also sponsors a campus Big Brother Big Sister program to help fresh- men adjust to life at Notre Dame. In conjunction with this program, several socials are planned, including a skating party and a game-watch party. Through the " Educational Tal- ent Search Shadow For a Day Program " members host middle school students for a day, becom- ing positive role models and lead- ers for them.

Many of these same traditions can be found here on the campus of Notre Dame within such organizations as the Judo Club and the World Taekwondo Federation Club. The Notre Dame Judo Club is an organization that teaches balancing techniques and submission holds, along with some basic elements of self-de- fense. The intent of judokas, those who practice judo, is to attain " mutual welfare and maxi- mum efficiency, " with the ulti- mate goal of the " eventual per- fection of human character. " Started in Tokyo in 1882, judo has gained international recogni- tion and has even become an Olympic sport. The Notre Dame Judo Club welcomes all skill levels and no experience is necessary. Taught by a sixth-degree black belt, this class not only teaches basic judo skills, but it also teaches one how to overcome fear while increasing stamina and strength. Students of all belt lev- els practice together and, conse- quently, learn from one another. The World Taekwondo Federation Club is celebrating its 10th successful year at Notre Dame, but this year is very dif- ferent from the rest. Korean In- ternational Master S.P. Hong began personally teaching the club. This is a great honor that most universities do not enjoy. Master Hong ' s qualifications ex- ceed those of all others teaching Martial Arts on campus. The WTF Club is based in Hong ' s USA Taekwondo, Master Hong ' s local taekwondo school whose black belt instruc- tors volunteer their time to help teach the students on campus. Club members have taken ad- vantage of all that the classes have to offer: excercise, self-defense, and a fun way of relieving stress.

But for ver 300 students from Notre Dame and St. Mary ' s College ho participate in Habitat for Humanity, weekends provide an opportunity to serve their com- munity. These students devote time each Saturday and Sunday constructing homes in South Bend ' s Northeast Neighbor- hood for families in need of de- cent housing. With die guidance of just one retired volunteer, the students are responsible for ev- erything from window framing to dry-walling to installing insu- lation. Working in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity In- ternational, the Notre Dame stu- dent chapter has thus far con- structed four homes as an inde- pendent organization, and hopes to continue this legacy of service with multiple homes through- out coming academic years. Habitat for Humanity International has as its professed goal the elimination of poverty housing while providing com- munities with quality, affordable alternatives. The constructed homes are sold to local families at low, fixed amounts to be paid over 20 years interest-free. The money from the sales then en- ters a revolving fund, which is used for the construction of more homes. The families are also re- quired to work a certain num- ber of hours on their houses, re- ferred to as " sweat equity " . Through various dinners and social events throughout the year, Notre Dame students are able to meet and interact with the South Bend families which they serve. In October, Notre Dame Habitat sent 12 students to Moorefield, West Virginia, as part of the Center for Social Concerns ' Appalachia Seminar. This recent addition to the chapter ' s work with Habitat for Humanity increased the scope and reach of the Notre Dame community ' s strong commit- ment to service. by Karen Flynn Left: Under the close scrutiny of his fellow members, this Habitat member makes his contribution to the Moorefield house one nail at a time. ;ilt) Women ' s Boxing: first row (left to right): Kelene Keegan, Christina Kolski, Darlene Santoli, Hilary Silvia, Carrie Flanagan, Laura Giuliani, Amy Frigon, Kara Winn, Megan Nickovich, Shannon Dolan; second row (left to right): Jennifer Ross, Kitty Puzon, Heather Densmore, Melanie Smith, Jenny Choi, Mary C.

But what exactly is it that makes a campus so spirited? Undoubtedly, the cheers, smiles, and pep of the Notre Dame Pom-Pon Squad make a great contribution to the enthusiasm that encompasses the entire com- munity. Since the beginning of this highly competitive, indepen- dently funded team in 1991, the schedule of the Pom-Pon Squad has become more demanding each year. At one point, perform- ing only at the football games, the girls have recently added bas- ketball games to their perfor- mance schedule as well. Each year, the com- munity ' s awareness of the Pom- Pon Squad has dramatically grown due to increased time in the spodight at charity events and alumni pep rallies as well as ath- letic games. Because the squad is an independent team and not a var- sity sport, the pom ' s two spon- sors, Frances Shavers and D ' Juan Francisco, are instrumental in organizing fund-raising efforts. Together, the girls and their sponsors must raise money to pay for uniforms, shoes, and warm-ups. Aside from dona- tions, the Pom-Pon Squad is funded through program sales each football season. Every performance rou- tine is choreographed by the members of the squad. The squad keeps between 1 2 and 1 6 members each year. This year ' s squad was comprised of 14 members, 7 of which are new sophomore members. In August, the squad at- tends a four day UDA college dance routines, the Pom-Porl camp in Milwaukee.

They are the alumni of this niversity, and they form a cru- Association to furnish students with social, service, and career- oriented opportunities. Throughout the year, SARG assembles many activities that promote communications between the current students and the alumni. For example, SARG sponsors the Extern program, which allows students to spend a week of their break to receive hands-on experience in the real world of their chosen field with a Notre Dame graduate in the workplace. In addition, SARG hosted the National Conference in August, 1997 where a thou- sand students from over 130 schools from the US and Canada came together to promote bet- ter relations between students and alumni. SARG also sponsors the All Class Picnic in the spring for students to meet representatives from all of the Notre Dame alumni groups around the nation. SARG is one of the most diversified organizations at Notre Dame. Comprised of students of different majors, classes, and races, it is one place where stu- dents can find something in common with students and alumni. SARG plays a central part in the relationship between students and alumni. Apart from facilitating students with benefi- cial career programs and possi- bilities, SARG encourages mem- bers to become liaisons to stu- dents and give back to the Notre Dame cmmunity after gradua- tion. by Jenny Choi Left: The 1997-98 members of SARG come together to increase relations between students and alumni, continuing to broaden the scope of the Notre Dame community.

However, the celebration is not complete with- out the musical talents that form an integral part of every service. Students donate their time and energy to the ministry of music to broaden the religious experi- ence each week. Accompanying the liturgy are sounds from the choir loft, calling all to worship. The University of Notre Dame Liturgical Choir, founded in 1973, is composed of 55 un- dergraduate and graduate stu- dents. The choir regularly min- isters at the 10 a.m. Solemn Mass and Sunday evening Vespers at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, singing a capella and accompa- nied by sacred music from the Renaissance period through the 20 th century. In addition, the 5jng Glory to God Bringing Music to Notre Dame ++ ty choir sings for weddings, ordi- nations, Junior Parent Weekend and the University Baccalaureate Mass. The choir is currently headed by Director Dr. Gail Walton and Assistant Director Andrew McShane. Typically the choir rings in the new year by embarking on a tour to bring the ministry of music to parishes and dioceses across the nation. In May 1995, the choir made their first inter- national excursion, following a Papal invitation to Rome. Past domestic itineraries have in- cluded the Northeast, the Mid- west, and the Southern states. This year, during the final week of Christmas Break, the choir traveled to California. In Fall 1998, the choir will mark twenty-five years of service to God and the Univer- sity of Notre Dame.

The Sailing Irish compete year-round at colleges across the nation in weekend regattas. hoio courtesy at In Spring 1997, both the co-ed and women ' s teams qualified for Nationals in Port- land, Oregon.

In Fall 1997, junior Stephanie Doyle qualified for the Women ' s Single Handed Na- tionals which were held at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT; she placed 10 th out of 16 representing the entire Midwest. Paul Kaseburg represented the Midwest as well in the Men ' s Single Handed Na- tionals at the University of West- ern Michigan. The Sailing Club re- tains its tradition of being a close- knit group of friends. They teach sailing lessons together in the fall to interested Notre Dame stu- dents and encourage everyone to come out for the team. The team travels extensively in search of competition. This talented group has sailed in Louisiana, New York, California, Oregon, Washington, Maryland, and France in the past year. Due to the fact that sailing is a club sport at Notre Dame, they either pay their own way or rely on yearly fund-raisers to cover their travel expenses. However, ask the members, and they will tell you that it is worth it. If meir past success is any indication, the Sailing Irish will be making waves for many years to come.

Students, alumni, faculty, and staff dedi- cate countless hours to the cre- ation of various publications that record both everyday life and special moments in Notre Dame history. From the ordinary to the unique, tradition is forever captured within the pages of the Dome yearbook publication. Through the combined effort of editors, assistant editors, photographers, and staff writers as well as Advisor Adelle Lanan, this annual publication captures every aspect of the Notre Dame experience. The Campus Life section depicts the subtle nu- ances that make this University unique, such as the perfect study spot. Year-in-Review focuses on the special events that happen on campus each year like AnTostal. Especially for the graduating class, the Senior section is de- voted to bidding these students a fond farewell through candids and personal anecdotes. The great tradition of Notre Dame athletics is captured each year in the Sports section. Represent- ing the wide-spread interests of the student body, the Organiza- tions section offers students an opportunity to explore all that the great people of this Univer- sity have to offer. Last but cer- tainly not least, the Academic section of the Dome yearbook draws attention to the intellec- tual environment that comprises Notre Dame. In August of 1997, members of the Dome staff par- ticipated in a workshop entitled " The Seven Habits of Highly Effetive People. " In an effort to improve communication and other skills as well as bond as a staff, the time away from cam- pus was a welcomed addition to the many activities that members participate in throughout the year.

They take pride in their presentation of the masterpieces of sym- phonic music, from the classical standards of Mozart, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky to the more contemporary pieces by com- Uura Petcllc posers such as Gershwin and Copeland. Each illustrates the perfection that comes to musi- cians with hard and persistent work. Orchestra is a one credit class for Notre Dame students, and members are selected by au- dition at the beginning of the school year or by contacting the director. The Symphony Or- chestra put on three annual con- certs in Washington Hall, always for large and appreciative audi- ences. Every year, those that at- tend the concerts are taken aback by the talents of the symphony ' s members. The 1997-98 concert calendar included performances of pieces by Beethoven, Mozart, Mahler, Stravinsky, Bernstein, Debussy, and Tchaikovsky. The sights and sounds of the orches- tra are a marvel for students to enjoy. The Orchestra is com- prised of a large string section: in- cluding violins, violas, cellos, and string basses. There is also a small woodwind section, a brass sec- tion, and a percussion section; which includes the tympani along with the more familiar per- cussion instruments. The Orchestra provides a great way for its members to unwind through their music. The symphony gives student musicians an opportunity to re- fine their individual skills and participate in a group that aims to make great music, while hav- ing fun at the same time. The Symphony Orchestra is one more piece in the mosaic that makes student life so great here at Notre Dame. by Joanne KoeM Left: Two members of the Notre Dame Sym- phony Orchestra discuss how to interpret their music during practice.

For those who are look- ing for something new and ex- citing to break up the monotony of their regular class schedule, there are a variety of options to spice up their weekend. As the only singing and dancing en- semble on campus, the Notre Dame Shenanigans group uses various types of music and dance to attract their audience. Using anything from Broadway and jazz to Big Band and Irish traditional music com- bined with tap, ballroom, and theater jazz dancing, Notre Dame Shenanigans keeps busy during both the fall and spring semesters preparing and per- forming their shows. With such a varied repertoire, the audiences at these performances never know what to expect. In the fall, Shenanigans presented their production for the Alumni Hospitality Recep- tion before home football games. In Washington Hall, they perform a winter concert with Christmas songs and other popular favorites. The spring semester brought more excite- ment as the group hosted three main events on campus. The first of these events took place in a performance during Junior Parents ' Weekend. There was also a production organized to enter- tain those on campus for Com- mencement. However, the high- light of the semester was the an- nual Broadway Review spring show. This year ' s Broadway Re- view, for the third year now, was Rock Musicals with songs from various productions including Rent, Tommy, and Jesus Christ Superstar. As in years past, it was an entertaining evening full of song and dance. Shenanigans is a co-ed organization with participating students from the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary ' s College. Members are selected on the basis of a singing and dancing audition in the fall. They dedicate countless hours to practice and performance to make the group a success. by Erika Home Karen C ass ell Photos by: Paul Raltesm Notre Dame Chorale: first row (left to right): Erin Dunnigan, Caroline Kent, Heather Paich, Christine Burns, Rose Domingo, Rachel Hansen, Alexander Blachly (director), Patrick Johnson, Anthony Siefring, James Ulager, Brandon Burns; second row (left to right): Danielle Svonavec, Alyssa Donnelly, Jennifer Ehren, Tara Grieshop, Belinda Aber, MaryKathryn Robinson, Heather MacKenzie, Alex Powell, Samuel Vasquez; third row (left to right): Jill Witkowski, K.C.

For students wishing to Photo by: Paul Rakestraw pursue a career in veterinary medicine, Notre Dame does not offer a specific degree in Zool- ogy- However, there is a uni- versity-sponsored organization with their interests in mind. The opportunities for exposure to the veterinary field are numerous with the Pre-Vet Club at Notre Dame. Through direct contact with animals, service opportuni- ties in the community, and lec- tures on campus, members of the organization are able to further their educational experience. The Notre Dame Pre- Vet Club was established five years ago. The organization en- courages students interested in veterinary medicine to discover the excitement of the field. Additionally, the club provides helpful information about veterinary schools and vol- unteer opportunities. The orga- nization sponsors speakers from all aspects of veterinary medicine to lecture on a variety of topics including how canines are trained to detect drugs as well as how animals can be used to assist in- dividuals in rehabilitation.

This Filipino term, synonymous with the Spanish expression " Viva " , trans- lates into " long live! " The Filipino-American Student Organization(FASO) at the University of Notre Dame strives to exemplify this with their Filipino culture and heri- tage. Filipinos represent the larg- est Asian group on campus. FASO aims to promote the Filipino culture and heritage to the Notre Dame, Saint Mary ' s, and South Bend com- munities. Founded in 1986, this student organization continues to grow stronger every year through increased membership and more planned activities. Membership is open to anyone who expresses interest in learning about the Filipino Fili- pino-American culture and its people. To promote Filipino awareness on campus, FASO or- ganizes several cultural and so- cial activities throughout the year. Events such as the welcome picnic, Lumpia Night, Filipino games night, and dance classes provide students with an oppor- tunity to experience various as- pects of the Filipino culture. Guest speakers are also invited to address ethnic related issues, especially those related to the various roles of Asian-Ameri- cans. The organization ' s Ate Kuya Program, (Big Brother Big Sister Program), which strives to preserve the strong es- sence of family in the Filipino culture, aims to create strong re- lationships between each year ' s new freshmen and upperclass- men. FASO also participated in this year ' s Asian Allure Fash- ion Show in December. They performed Binasuan, a candle dance, and Singkil, a traditional Muslim dance. Every year, FASO hosts its largest cultural event, the an- nual " Fiestang Filipino " , a din- ner and cultural variety show dis- playing traditional and modern Filipino dance and music. This year marks a very significant milestone for the Fili- pino community as they cel- ebrate the centennial celebration of Filipino independence. The Phillipine Centen- nial represents history, struggle, and solidarity of the Filipino people as they declared indepen- dence from Spanish tyranny. The celebration will be incorporated into the fourth annual " Fiestang Filipino " making it bigger and better than ever. by Rona Reodica and Amanda Bona bv: Rona Reodica ll II II I II M 1 1 Photos by: Paul Rakesiraw International Student Organization: first rowdeft to right): S.

Various oppor- tunities include tutoring under- privileged children, visiting nurs- ing homes, working at soup kitchens, and volunteering at the Boys Girls Club of South Bend. The Humor Prescription Program is an activity recently introduced to the club. Student volunteers bring magazines and videos with them on their visits to the hospital. The theme for Circle K this year was Focus on the Fu- ture. This was an attempt at striving to better the lives of un- derprivileged children for a life- time. To ensure this goal, two special projects, the Iodine Defi- ciency Disorder Drive and the Family Living Program, have been implemented this year. The IDD Drive collected money to send to iodine deficient children in third world nations. The Fam- ily Living Program taught chil- dren life skills such as conflict resolution and nutrition. This program also sponsored a girls basketball team, coached by Notre Dame students. The efforts of the mem- bers of Circle K do not go un- noticed.

Traditionally the team looks for five to six members from each class to keep the team well balanced for the future, but all are welcome at their practices. The team is known for its laid back attitude and acceptance of others at practice, including vis- iting teams. Ultimate Frisbee was first established in the fall of 1994. At the time it consisted of ten men and five women. Over the past four years the team has grown to its present size of 25 men and 20 women. Last year the team was recognized as an athletic club for the first time. Also, for the first time last year, the women played as a team. The team plays year- round in all weather, practicing outdoors, even in die snow. Play is held on a football field with seven members on the field at a time. Games are usually played to 15 points. Team uniforms include light and dark camou- flage jerseys. During the fall the team plays local adult teams in the adult open season. In the spring, the Papal Rage, as the team calls itself, participates in the college Break to play against some of the top rated west coast teams, thanks to some outside funding from Nike. Team practices are usu- ally held three to four days a week along with team runs during the season. In addition, the team season. Last spring the team played its way to a 22-6 college record. This year the team hopes to improve on its record, win regionals, and play well in na- tionals. Along the way the team will play in several tournaments, traveling to Purdue, Michigan, and Cincinnatti. The Papal Rage will also host the second annual White Smoke Tournament here at Notre Dame on March 2 1 and 22.

The further we go down life ' s path we are made more aware of how we are partici- pants in a process of growth and development. Notre Dame offers one of the highest ranked curriculum in the nation. As a university, many different colleges provide students with various opportunities to ex- pand on their particular interests and academic pur- suits. Thus, Notre Dame offers a great preparation for what lies ahead of every student: further school- ing, the job market, or service.

The is are part of the university ' s largest fund-raising campaign ever, titled Generations. Such funds will cover new library collections, academic programs, professorships and scholarships. But in the meantime bulldozers and hard-hats, fences and dirt piles are taking over campus. Admissions and Financial Aid staff have been moved to Grace Hall, while many other officers are currently residing in Hurley. William Kirk, Assistant Vice President for Residence Life in Student Affairs, says " everyone has accommodated well with the move. " But Kirk admits that it is difficult to get around. Speaking with staff from another department entails much more than a walk down the hall. Yet through the chaos of moving, the administration has continued to keep up its normal responsibilities. This has been a particularly difficult task for the Office of Student Affairs. This year has proven to be no exception in terms of the office ' s involvement in student life. Two new residence halls were opened, McGlinn and Welsh Family Hall. As well, several other halls changed the gender of their cohabitants. A great deal of time was spent editing a new version of every student ' s favorite book, du Lac. Student Affairs has also dealt with the issue of the non- discrimination clause.

In response this year, the " Spirit of Inclusion at Notre Dame, " asks members of the Notre Dame community themselves to make the environment more inclusive. Many students have felt encouraged by this step, but continue to push for inclusion. Because the administration is so often busy with individual tasks and now running across campus, many students fail to get to know the people behind the names filling these offices. Most stu- dents however appreciate their hard work in helping the university run smoothly. After all, at Notre Dame, the administration helps make the world go round. ,,. .fc Ihoto bv: Paul RjU-sirau Academics 991 incline the Core tudents Bond irough an Unusual Class Phoio by: Michele Costello Dean Mark W.Roche The College of Arts and Letters Total Enrollment: 2306 Male: 45.1% Female: 54.9% Most Popular First Major: Government Most Popular Second Major: Computer Applications Average Male GPA: 3.213 Average Female GPA: 3.306 Students Graduating with Honors: 39.5% ics courtesy of Notre Dame Institution Research, based on 1996-97. by Katie Keller ust as all Engineering majors must take EG 120 and all Pre-Med majors must take General I Chemistry in their freshman year, majors in the College of Arts and Letters are required to take a sophomore year literature class called Core. Majors of the college are bound by this common tHead when they read the same books in this two semester long class designed to facilitate bussion on all kinds of topics, improving writing and thinking skills. While the engineers and scientists are crammed into 101 DeBartolo for their introductory] courses, Arts and Letters majors get a unique experience. In small rooms throughout O ' Shaughnessy I Hall, seminar-style classes get students actively involved with each other while discussing diverse | readings from books such as The Bible anA The Brothers Karamazov. Many students describe lasting friendships they have made through bonding in Core class by sharing their personal stories so openly. Students often get to know each other by sharing their opinions and feelings on such topics as philosophy, gender roles, economics, sex and religion. Amazingly enough, the same curriculum applied in different classes by different professors creates completely different atmospheres. While some students recall hating Core, others miss the intimacy and friendships of the class. Most people who have taken Core attribute the wide variation among classes to the professor ' s attitude, which can set the tone, and whether or not students in the class are willing to talk. A variation in backgrounds of students in the class also helps make the dynamics more interesting, allowing both sides of an argument to be heard. " Our class ended up really clicking, " junior Holly Skinner says. Some Core classes become so close over the course of the year that they make plans to meet outside of the classroom. One Core graduate recalls a memorable experience at a local Jewish Temple. Other Core classes have done service projects together, or planned dinners together, even at CJ ' s. To many outsiders, the Core course may sound like an extension of Freshman Seminar. Photo by: Alison Ma If You ' re Happy and You Know it Raise Your Hand.

If you have to study, sitting on the quad helps set the perfect atmosphere for students of all majors. Photo by: Allison Fashck But students claim that the material is far more challenging and the discussion topics more mature. The fact that all Arts a nd Letter majors across campus are reading and discussing the same curriculum also helps, because students can start Core related discussions in their dorm Debate has even occured over whether other colleges should require courses similar to Core to stimulate the thinking and questioning for which the class is so well known. But while most Arts and Letters majors agree that Core is a good idea, helping a variety of majors and interests within the college relate, there is still room for improvement. Many stu- dents complain that Core required a time commitmentheyond that of a typical class, with long books to read and papers to write for two meetings a week. Overall though, most Arts and Letters majors drew a positive experience from Core. One junior was happy with Core because he enjoyed the discussions and found the information challenging. Junior Mary Westervelt felt the class was important. " The books were those that educated people should have read, " WestervldS|. Bk The Core course provides just such an opportunity.

Academics are the cornerstone of a college education, but effective structures will consist of much more than this. As students, we need extra-curricular activities to round out the rough edges, polish each individual and allow us to gleam as brightly as the Golden Dome itself. In addition to academics, students at this institution commit diemselves to activities including jobs, sports, clubs, service projects and internships. Maintaining an active social life, remaining close with family and friends, keeping a deep spiritual connection and pursuing talents and hobbies are also very important in the life of each Domer. This never-ending list of priorities can weigh heavily on students, continually begging the same million-dollar question: how will I manage my schedule? It seems as though balance at Notre Dame is subjective and ever-changing. Each person ' s definition differs from another ' s and fluctuates between seasons, assignments, performances and paychecks. Achieving the ultimate state of equilibrium is about realizing priori- ties and accordingly organizing them into our time. This campus is full of Type-A personalities, list-makers and perfectionists, all of whom share the nasty habit of procrastination. Thus, if we are list-makers, we must complete the items on our lists. 102 Academics Eye of the Storm. Some students need to study at a quiet carol in the library, others have dif- ferent needs...

But learning at college is about both academics and the distractions that keep us from the books. We cannot deprive ourselves of challenges beyond our notebooks. In order to grow, we must form friendships, exercise leadership and display our talents. Students at Notre Dame tend to be multi-faceted charac- ters, constantly striving to be well-rounded and complete, taking on too much. Day after day our gold is tested in the fire and it is up to us not to melt under the stress. Balance often seems like a far away place, but it can be ours, it can be here. If we want to succeed, we must put down the daily planners and examine our lives. Only then can we handle both academics and extra-cur- ricular activities, the cornerstones of Notre Dame.

High school helped prepare us for college and now Notre Dame is grooming us for something on a much grander scale - life. But a select number of our student body are already pursu- ing greater endeavors within the realm of the university. Like all Notre Dame students, they can be described as creative, purposeful, success- ful, and just plain smart. But die Honors Program demands even more from students. Add some extra drive and fortitude, then subtract at least a couple of hours of free time each night, accounting for the tough course load. This i s the equation for the composition of an Honors student. The University of Notre Dame ' s Honors Program began in 1983, " ...designed to foster an active intellectual community in the context of die already rich academic, social and cultural opportunities available at Notre Dame, " states the program ' s web page. Such stu- dents cultivate a natural habit of inquiry, love of challenge and find that the structure of the program stimulates them to achieve to their fullest capacities. The lure of die program is that the classes are much smaller and the professors even more fantastic than usual, but eventually reality sets in. There is more work to tackle and the idea of a senior thesis is frightful to many. Senior year is the time for Arts and Letters majors to turn in their independent research projects, the Honors theses. Science majors must turn in lab work and theses giving the results of years of original research. O Ac ademics On, Now I Get It.

Photo by: James Pa However daunting this may seem, Honors students are trained for the task through four years of learning, enriched in vari- ous ways. Monthly Honors Program colloquia are held in which students and faculty meet to discuss student-arranged topics. Op- portunities are also available for students to talk with distinguished visiting scholars. Students feel one of die best aspects of the program is that they truly get to know all of the Honors students in their year of studies. As well, they always have someone with whom to study and small classes to give them individual attention. The effects of the program are not always good for grade point averages, but the pro- gram is definitely worth the extra time and effort. Students gain a tremendous amount of respect from the student body, faculty, and administration. They earn the admiration of graduate schools and prospective employers. And most of all, they feel a deep sense of dignity within themselves for having been part of the Honors Pro- gram of the University of Notre Dame.

Have you seen my roommate? " kether in the new Bond Hall or jetting around Rome, Architecture students never seem to rie. " There are many times when you will not see your roommate for days at a time, " fifth year student Chris Podstawski says. " I spend much of my time in class, or after class trying to complete projects. " So why stay in the program? In fact, many Architecture students ask themselves this question, especially in the middle of the night in a state of panic over a project due in a matter of hours. Only due to a lot of determination and the desire to fulfill a dream do a small group of students choose to remain in the program. And the benefits are great, including the new hall and an extended field trip to Rome. Students also find that the long-term effects of their work make it all worthwhile. There is a strong desire among the university ' s Architecture students to aid the community through their work. Fourth year archie Kathy Schuth feels her designs can make a difference. " I would like to save the world through architecture, " she says. " I want to build a good house for a poor family. I want to see things being built for them. " But before one can even begin to build or draw for others, one has to learn the basics. Most Architecture students reject the notion that they just learn how to draw. They must begin their studies by building a foundation through many history courses along with hands-on learning in j Rome, in addition to internships in the field. The program begins freshman year with a few introductory classes, but it is sophomore yeari that has been known to challenge students, known by many as " hell year.

For those lucky and talented individuals that choose to stay, the reward is a year abroad, studying the architecture of Rome, visiting countless Cathedrals, eating pasta and absorbing the culture. Classes are based on guided tours throughout Europe, giving students and professors a close bond. But beyond Rome, the School of Architecture is about five years of intensive studying, allowing students to gain a deeper understanding of the art and science of their major. Even with an extra year of college, architects still realize that their time at Notre Dame ends too soon.

Unavoidably, studying gets put off. Sta So where do people study during the middle of the night? " Definitely not in your room, " junior Amy Krayer says. " If you try to pull an all-nighter in your room, you will eventually give up and go to bed, because your bed is right there. Study anywhere else, just not in your room! " Other students agree that it helps to have people around who are also awake at these horrible hours. Many students like the atmosphere of the LaFortune basement as well as dorm study lounges. Finding a place is not usually the problem though. The problem is finding a way to stay awake. With all of the cramming students do, especially before mid- terms and finals, all-nighters are inevitable. After the first few nights of drinking Mountain Dew or very strong, very black coffee, finding ways to stay alert starts to become interesting. Of course, a popular way to boost energy is through eating, and eating plenty of chocolate and candy. One anonymous student likes to take a Hershey bar, break it into several pieces and let the chocolate melt in his mouth, letting the sugar rush last up to three hours. Senior Amber Neely drinks Dr. Pepper to hype up for a long night. " I usually drink three cans during the night and another two during the next day to keep me going strong, " Neely says. " Without my Dr., there would be no way I would be able to make it. " Freshman Kristen Komara says that her friends will get into food fights just to release energy and get revived.

" Several students admit that another way to get through the night involves taking ten minutes every hour to do some push-ups and sit-ups, getting the blood flowing. Another student says she likes to take breaks and play a good dance mix, dancing the night away. When looking for a break, sometimes dorms will interact with each other. Senior Anita Arockiasamy says that in the winter, snowball fights on south quad at three in die morning are a great way to release stress. " You need to take a break every once in a while or you will go crazy, " Arockiasamy says. It is never good to cram for a test or stay up all night long, but let ' s be realistic, it happens. Every student need to find his or her own way to make it through the night. Think about it, or maybe sleep on it. 1OIO by: Kelly Pottei anger Than Fiction Science Takes on Ethics Dean Francis J.

Teachers seem to have no mercy, assigning group i top of papers on top of exams, to which students reply, hik this is my only class? " Yet for the hundreds of varsity npus, this is only part of their responsibility. The secret to success, most say, is getting into a routine and sticking to it. " In the beginning, it ' s a little difficult to adjust, " says senior Dan Rothschild, a member of the tennis team. " Eventu- ally though, you figure out how much time you need. " Finding this balance is necessary due to the time commitments every student- adilete has outside die classroom. During the season, teams practice between two and three hours at least five days a week. Most teams practice in the late afternoon, meaning students must have class in the early morning to leave the afternoons clear. After practice, it is time for dinner, homework and then the whole cycle starts over again. " Just like everything else, you have to find the time to sleep, " says senior pole-vaulter Mike Stany. " Sometimes that means taking a nap in the middle of the day or going to bed a little earlier at night. It ' s all part of the routine. " Besides practice, games also take away some of the stu- dents ' free time, especially away games. Though the teams try not to miss too many school days, missed classes are sometimes inevitable. Crucial to the success of a student-athlete is a good relationship with his or her professors. Ultimately, it is die professor ' s decision on how to handle the absences.

Many times this comes in the form of the University ' s academic services for student- athletes office.

She rushes to class to turn in the lab report she worked on all night, only to find that her professor changed die instructions and she will have to redo the entire thing. After class she agonizes and then finally decides to check her grade on her Fluids exam. She got a 52 percent, beat the mean!

She rushes home to begin a mountain of homework problems, fills up on caffeine and prepares to spend another night with differential equations. The next day she awakens to the same nightmarish life of an engineering student. Some non-engineering students may wonder if the life of an engineer is as bad as so many claim. " I don ' t think engineering is really harder than any other major, " Aerospace Engineer major Jill Matalavage says. Others disagree however, citing an overwhelming work load and a great deal of frustration. " The worst part about it is spending an hour on a problem only to find out that I did it wrong and have to start all over, " Mechanical Engineer major Rosemary Sage says. Junior Greg Ourednik, a Chemical Engineer major, says that engineers cannot get a complete college experience because their work load interferes widi extra-curricular activities. Beyond their work load, there are positive aspects to choosing engineering as a major. Brian Tomcik, a Civil Engineer, says that there is a camaraderie in the department among students who can sympathize with each other ' s experience. Chemical Engineer major Lauren Otto claims that one of the best parts of Notre Dame ' s program is its small size in comparison with programs at such schools as Purdue, especially in the chemical department.

Many also express confidence in the fact that this major will provide them with a definite career path.

These programs come in the forms of gift aid or self- help. Those students who need the most support are given the opportu- nity to earn scholarships and grants as gift aid. They may also take out loans or become involved in the work-study program as means of self-help. The work-study program is a popular option on campus. Part- time employment is offered through the Federal Work-Study Program. Because on-campus opportunities are rather limited, the university, when hiring students, first considers those most in need. Close to 30% of first- year students are employed on campus, working in a broad range of loca- tions, including the Dining Halls, the libraries, the Bookstore, the com- puter labs, and many of the small businesses in LaFortune, such as the Copy Shop, Irish Gardens, Huddle-Mart, and the Huddle. Students are paid every two weeks and the money they earn is directly deposited into checking accounts, which most students agree gives the check a longer life-span, keeping it out of their hands. Wages vary, and while die wages students earn are not exactly substantial enough to live on for long, the money does help pay for all of die " extras " inherent to a college student ' s budget. Students devote between eight and twelve hours each week to dieir jobs, forcing diem to manage their spare time wisely. At the begin- ning of the year, when planning work schedules, on-campus employers try to be flexible, working around students ' classes, tests, and extracur- ricular activities.

Phoro by: Kelly Poll Photo by: James Pastore Work-study students also have early DART times, so they do not have to worry about conflicting class and work times. Many students like to work in the morning because they feel they are not sacrificing their social lives. One freshman who works in the Law Library finds it a challenge to wake up and go to work every morning at 8:00 a.m., but she still thinks her job has been a good experience. Whether a student ' s tasks are menial or intensely labori- ous, the program sometimes enables them to discover where their future job interests may or may not lie. As with any job, work-study students take advantage of their opportunities to meet new peers as well as full-time employed adults. All work-study students are united in their increased knowledge of the joys and frustrations of being part of the working world. They realize how tough it is to keep a balance between work, study, and play. But they put in the hours anyway, and most feel the pay-off is worth it.

There is always so much to do and students e enough time to do it all. And then we stop and think to ourselves, I thought that college was supposed to be Fun! So why are we always so stressed out? Why do we always reach for Mountain Dew? Why do we retreat to the tenth floor of Hesburgh Library, thus making ourselves insane? It is be- cause, as sophomore Carrie Schroeder says, " [We] all tend to slack off, for a long time. " All of the sudden students find themselves sitting in the midst of tons of work. There are chemistry tests, philosophy papers, history pages to read and lab write-ups to just name a few tasks that pile up on us. We need to remember as freshman Matt Stevens says, " Life is not school! " It is made up of more than this. Parents, playing catch, fights with friends, eating quarterdogs, praying, and taking care of that pile of laundry currently competing with the Basilica for the tallest tower on campus are all important parts of our lives. So what are we supposed to do about stress? We cannot just forget about it all. We all know how horrible it feels to flunk tests and feel the evil pressure of grades. But there comes a point where we have to take a break from it all. Schroeder admits, " I have cried to my roommate because she always tells me everything is going to be fine. " Others can find a little peace at the Grotto or even by walking around the lakes just to get a moment alone. |120 Academics Call Me.

Going abroad, as many students contest, is the experience of a lifetime. It is a way to finally experience everything you have read about, to make it all come to life. Many students admit the experience has its ups and down, but overall, students who have participated in Notre Dame ' s various abroad programs would do it all over again in the blink of an eye. Aldiough students often go abroad to study and learn more abut the culture of another country, many find time to take breaks and do a lot more than just study. For one, students find themselves at bars and clubs since the drinking age is lower in most foreign countries. Another common diversion is sight-seeing. All a student needs is a tour book and a good sense of direction to see all the sights of the world. Many take advan- tage of this fact and see the world. Students are also known to try as many different kinds of food as possible. On the whole, it often does not even seem like school. Traveling abroad is not as easy as it sounds though. Al- though it may be a lot of fun, life outside of the cozy Notre Dame environment can be a little complicated. First of all, there is always a danger in traveling. We have all heard stories about important lug- gage being lost, missing a train and having a flight canceled. Several students have had to borrow others ' clothes after tragic luggage mis- haps. Many also found themselves chasing down trains, unsure of foreign train schedules. 1124 Academics I American Gladiators.

" - After living on the Notre Dame campus for a few years, most students develop a sense of security, feeling that we can walk around, leave our doors unlocked and set something down without having to worry. It only takes a flight across the world for many to realize that life is a little different outside of the gates of Notre Dame. Terrorist threats, bombings, political tension and guards carrying machine guns are some of the norms students have learned to deal with on a regular basis. Students do not leave for abroad programs without understanding most of these dangerous circumstances, though. An orientation program exists focusing on ways students can take extra safety precautions to ensure their own well-being. When students come back from dieir programs, they often seem different. They have been around the block and farther, so to speak. They have seen things from a different perspective, become accustomed to a different environment. All of the things that may have gone wrong only become great stories for later. They are, as many students who have studied abroad realize, the memories that last a lifetime.

Robinson, director of the Thomas J. White Center for Law and Government, is definitely a professor who deserves recognition. And that is exactly what the Notre Dame Law students did when they presented him with the Distinguished Teaching Award. Robinson has a doctoral degree in philosophy, and taught philosophy for several years before receiving his law degree for the University of California at Berkeley. But he is still at a loss for knowing the reasons why he received his award, which is given out each year by the students. " I teach a lot of students, " Robinson says. " I have at least half of the first year [Law] students and teach a very large number of second and third year classes. " Robinson also has a great deal of interaction with students in and outside of class. " Because I am an advisor for two different journals, I work very closely with a group of about twenty or twenty-five students who write. Robinson must be doing something right. So what is his teaching philosophy? " My goal is try to make every class day full, " he says. " I try really hard not to waste the students time. I assume they have read and thought about the reading assignments. " He then tries to take the students to a higher level of thinking, one they would be unlikely to achieve on their own. " I really believe that writing is an important part of learning, " Robinson says. " Even when I have two hundred or more students in a class, I have at least two writing assignments that are fairly serious, " he says. Beyond this, Robinson feels that it is very difficult to be interactive or even do one-on-one work in a large class. " I have yet to achieve an articulate philosophy of teaching, " he says. " I just do it. " Looking back on how he first became interested in law, Robinson recalls always think- ing about going to law school, but at the time he was too absorbed in philosophy. " I liked my classes so much that I went to graduate school in philosophy, I kept coming back to it, " he says. Photo by: Amanda Bauer Reading Is Fundamental.

Academics Rock Solid s sports Photos by: Danielle Moore The tradition of athletic prowess at Notre Dame is unmatched. The fear which the Fighting Irish in- spire is world-renowned. This athletic strength is not limited to football. Leaders such as Knute Rockne and the Four Horsemen provide examples of Irish athleticism. Yet Notre Dame athletes now run the gamut from soccer to lacrosse to fencing. These various athletes continue a legacy of success. Notre Dame teams are usually top-ranked. They are rarely ignored by the press, or more importantly, by their opponents. Hours spent in the weight room and on the practice field produce results. These re- sults can be seen in the ferocity with which the Fight- ing Irish approach the playing field. Pain and sweat are their medals of honor. Victorious no matter what the score, Notre Dame athletics are Rock Solid. 28 Cornerstone The spirit of Notre Dame athletics is represented through the many actions of the athletes and fans. According to pregame tradition the players raise a gold helmet high in the air, uniting the team as one. Cornerstone 1 2.) Labor Behind the Legend Managers and Trainers: Keeping the Irish Up to Par Ky Karen Milke Behind the glamour and tradition of Irish athletes lies an often overlooked but integral group of people. This is the group responsible for making sure that everything runs smoothly so that the coaches and athletes can concentrate on what is truly important: winning. This group is comprised of two important parts, the Student Managers and the Student Trainers. The Student Managers experience some of their most trying and demanding times during the football season, when their duties are numerous and very time consuming. While the rest of campus is concentrating on having fun and relaxing on the weekends, the Student Managers are at work long into the night ensuring that the equipment is up to par, the locker room clean and ready, and those famed golden helmets ready to shine. The time and effort that diese managers put in is often forgotten in the drama of the game or event as it is occurring, however, if it weren ' t for the managers and their dedication to the Irish, so much of what die spectator enjoys would be missing. Students ranging from sophomores to seniors are involved in the Student Managers program, progressing each year up the ladder of responsibility. At the end of each year, the managers rank each other and themselves according to how they feel they performed in the previous year. These rankings help to determine who will progress to the next year and the next level. Another integral group that is necessary to the success of the Irish, is the group of Student Trainers. These students put in many long days with the athletes, coaches, and managers as well. They are constantly ready to provide assistance to the coaches and staff, by ensuring that an injured athlete receives immediate medical attention, as well as providing much needed refreshments during games and events. These Student Managers and Trainers do so much to enable the Irish to succeed on every level. They are the faces behind the faces that represent our university game after game. They are the nuts and bolts of the Irish athletic machine and are necessary to make sure that it operates to its fullest potential. The labor behind the legend? This is hardly true. Without these diligent Student Managers and Trainers, the legend would simply not exist.

Laying the Foundation The Beginning of the Bob Davie Era Most Irish fans entered the football season excited about the opportunity to witness the dawning of a new day for the Notre Dame football program. The team had a new coach in Bob Davie, along with a newly renovated stadium which now seated an additional 20,000 people. No matter how one felt about the departure of Lou Holtz or the renovation of the stadium, Irish fans everywhere were filled with anticipation. Although Davie was highly regarded as a Defensive Coordinator, this was his first time holding the position of Head Coach. Davie was no KyehatfDomn stranger to the Notre Dame usual, but there was a lot of work football program, but there was to be done, still much to learn. Changes were also made to the rest of the coaching staff, Davie, along with his staff, had to lay the foundation for the future of the Notre Dame with Jim Colletto taking over as football team. When erecting a Offensive Coordinator and building that will thrive for years Greg Mattison replacing Davie to come, the strength of its as Defensive Coordinator. foundation is important. As a result of this The scene was set for the Irish transformation, many were not sure what to expect. Since Davie coached a much different style of play, the team had an adjustment to make. Davie hoped that the coaching staff played 19-point underdog and players would adapt during Georgia Tech. the course of the season. A win seemed destined for the Notre Dame entered the books. Still, lingering in the season with high expectations as background was the thought of on opening day.

However, led by Brown, Getherall, and Johnson, Notre Dame drove the ball downfield and Sanson hit a 28-yard field goal to tie the game at 10-10. Georgia Tech answered the Irish with a 33-yard field goal four seconds into the fourth quarter, giving them the lead once again by the score of 13-10. When Notre Dame took possession, Denson spurred on the Irish offense with a few key runs, and a 1-yard run for a touchdown to put the Irish ahead for good by the score of 1 7- 1 3. Although the game had not gone as planned, with the team pulling off a narrow four point victory, Davie was thankful to come out of it with an opening day win. The team looked to Purdue to capitalize on the win. Notre Dame traveled to West Lafayette, Indiana in hopes of securing a victory against the underdog Purdue Boilermakers. However, Notre Dame had difficulty executing and Purdue took advantage of this to pull off a 28- 17 upset. This loss was not only Notre Dame ' s first loss to Purdue in 1 1 years but was Bob Davie ' s first loss as the Head Coach of the Irish. The Irish as a team were still in a period of adjustment, and were unable to execute on both offense and defense. Purdue took advantage of Notre Dame ' s inability to make three key tackles in the upset. Purdue got on the board by launching a 99-yard drive led by Dicken and Watson. Purdue tailback Billy Watson came up with a 23 and 28-yard gain and later scored on a 1-yard run. A 34-yard Sanson field goal in the second quarter finally put the Irish on the board. After a penalty on the kickoff, Purdue had the ball at midfield and took a 14-3 lead on another Watson 1-yard touchdown. The Irish rebounded with an 84 yard drive capped off with a Denson 16-yard run to put the Irish within four. In the fourth quarter the Irish were still trailing Purdue by the score of 14-10, yetl a Powlus fumble resulted in a 43 yard touchdown by Beasley putting the Boilermakers ahead 21-10. The Irish pulled within four on a 1 -yard pass to Denson, but Purdue ' s Matthews easily ran a Notre Dame on-sides kick fora touchdown to give Purdue a 28- 17 lead and consequently the Boilermakers upset the Irish.

Laying the Foundation Irish Lose to Michigan State and Michigan; Fall to 7-3 1 to prove to themselves and to their fans that the loss to Purdue would not be characteristic of their play the rest of the season. Michigan State came on strong from the onset when Marc Renuad returned Sanson ' s kick for 52 yards. Michigan State scored 3:32 into the game and did not look back from there. The Spartan offense continued its domination of Notre Dame defense with a 73 yard drive that gave them a 14-0 lead. Notre Dame ' s defense was consistently unable to stop Michigan State and their 222 total yards rushing. The Irish offense consisted of a Ron Powlus touchdown pass to Bobby Brown, which proved to be too little, too late. MSU put the game out of reach when Chris Gardener connected with two 3 1 -yard field goals and a 32- yard field goal for the rest of MSU ' s scoring. The Spartans easily defeated Notre Dame and upped their record to 3-0. Meanwhile, die Irish fell to 1-2 and geared up to play a good Michigan team that promised to put them to die test. It turns out that Notre Dame was ready to take on Michigan in what was thought would be an easy win for the Wolverines. The Irish had yet looked good this season and Michigan entered the game with a highly regarded defense. Maybe it was because of the storied rivalry, or maybe because the Irish had something to prove, but Notre Dame entered the game with confidence and narrowly missed leaving Ann Arbor with an upset. Late in the first quarter the Irish took the lead on a 78 yard drive and an amazing touchdown pass to Bobby Brown to give the Irish a 7-0 Lead. The Wolverines wasted no time as Clarence Williams tied up the game with a 4 yard run at the end of a 66 yard drive. Yet, the Irish showed a lot of heart with an exceptional 98-yard drive giving them a 14-7 lead at halftime. In the second half, things began to fall apart for Notre Dame. What seemed to be a game that Notre Dame was controlling, began to slip away. The second half Michigan scored on the opening possession and tied up the game. A few penalties hurt the Irish and forced them to punt. Michigan took the lead once again on a Floyd touchdown. The Irish were unable to capitalize on three turnovers in the fourth quarter, costing them the game. Michi narrowly escaped with a win, b Notre Dame began to show that they were a better team than many people thought. Notre Dame traveled to Stanford in hopes of finally turning things around. After the Michigan game, the team looked as if they were ready to put things together and began to realize their potential.

The Irish looked good in the first half with 1 24 yards on the ground and 106 alone by junior Autry Denson. However, the defense could not stop Stanford in the second half. Bookman and Mitchell took over, and the Irish soon found themselves down by a score of 24-9 with 13:42 left in the fourth quarter. Once again Notre Dame fell apart in the second half. Bookman scored a final touchdown on a 74 yard drive to put the game away for Stanford giving them a 33-15 victory. The loss to Stanford brought Notre Dame ' s record to 1-4. The Irish hit a season low. Fans began to merely hope for a winning season and forgot about the lofty goals of going to a bowl game. Notre Dame traveled to Pittsburgh hoping to put an end to its four game skid, and to hopefully salvage their season. After remaining relatively quiet thus far into the season, the Irish offense came alive with the help of Denson and Rossum. Denson had two touchdowns, finished with 1 28 yards, and was able to maneuver through Pittsburgh ' s defense with ease. The first half was all Notre Dame. Rossum set the tone of the game right away with a 93- yard kickoff return for a touchdown to give the Irish the 7-0 lead, a lead that they would not relinquish. A Denson 50-yard run and Sanson field goal put the Irish up 17-0. Pittsburgh was unable to get on the Scoreboard until a six yard run by Dwayne Schulters midway through the third quarter. In the fourth quarter the Irish sealed the win with a 78- yard drive capped by Denson ' s second touchdown of the game. Jar ious Jackson entered late in the game and looked impressive, running the ball for two touchdowns and giving the Irish a much needed 45-21 win. Notre Dame had ended its four game slide, and the team breathed a sigh of relief. On the heals of a Pittsburgh blowout, the Irish hoped to pick up some momentum against ri- val USC. The rivalry between the two teams has always pro- duced close, exciting games and this year was no different. The first half of the game Notre Dame came on strong, but USC repeatedly answered. Denson gave the Irish an early lead on a two-yard run for a touchdown, but USC responded by tying the game on a Delon Washington touchdown. When Notre Dame took a 14-7 lead on a one-yard run by Driver, USC tied it up once again on a 8-yard touchdown pass to Soward. In the end, the game was decided on field goals.

After losing a heartbreaker to USC, Notre Dame faced the Eagles, who usually seem to give them a difficult time. Notre Dame hoped to shake things up offensively against BC, by using a combination of Powlus and Jackson at quaterback. With both Powlus and Jackson at the helm, die Irish offense responded widi its best output of the season, accumulating 526 total yards in a 52-20 blowout of BC. Notre Dame took the lead on a one-yard Driver run, and never looked back, holding on to the lead throughout the game. Looking to string two consecutive wins together for the first time this season, the Irish took on Navy, a team that they have defeated a record 34 games in a row. It was not an easy win for the Irish, but thanks to a gusty effort by Rossum, they pulled ofFa 21-17 win to squeak past the Naval Academy. On the last play of the game Chris McCoy launched a " Hail Mary " pass downfield that was tipped by Deke Cooper into die hands of Navy ' s Pat McGrew who preceded to race down the sideline. However, thanks to cornerback Allen Rossum ' s husde, McGrew was taken down at the two, and die Irish secured a 21-17 win against Navy. Chris McCoy ate up the Irish with the option, rushing for 147 yards, including both of Navy ' s touchdowns. Notre Dame ' s offense was fueled by Denson, who batded for two touchdowns, including the game winner, to propel Notre Dame over Navy. People began to talk about Notre Dame ' s bowl chances, yet the possibility seemed unlikely. Notre Dame entered the match up against then 11-th ranked LSU in Baton Rouge not given a chance to win. The Irish looked good of late, but a win in " Death Valley " seemed to be an unrealistic expectation of a team that was just beginning to develop. However, the team had a week to recover and get healthy. They played like they had something to prove. Clement Stokes and Autry Denson led Notre Dame ' s offensive attack, both running for over 90 yards with Stokes scoring two touchdowns. Notre Dame proved what kind of a team they were by crushing LSU by a score of 24-6. To say that Notre Dame dominated the game is an understatement.

He and several of his teammates played in post-season All Star games. Powlus led the Irish by making a record number of drives for game winning points in the final period against Georgia Tech, Navy, West Virginia, and Hawaii. He also helped the Irish complete more passes than any other team in Notre Dame history. Laying the Foundation Win Independence Bowl Bid, LSU Too Much for Irish in Rematch The Irish faced a significant challenge in 21 ranked West Virginia if they were going to have a chance at a bowl bid. After looking extremely impressive against LSU, Bob Davie knew that they would have to be on top of their game against the Mountaineers. Despite the pky of West Virginia ' s Zeroue, who ran for 234 yards on 32 carries, Notre Dame came up with a 21-14 victory in a close contest. Ivory Covington ' s interception proved to be the key play in the game. Notre Dame capitalized on the interception with a 78-yard drive led by Denson, whose 146 yards on the day a was big factor in the game. Powlus threw a game winning 1 1-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Brown with 4:56 remaining in the game. The Irish defeated West Virginia 21-14, and it looked as if Notre Dame ' s once improbable goal of going to a bowl game would be realized. The only obstade in the way was a less than intimidating opponent in the Hawaii Rainbows. Notre Dame arrived at the sunny shores of Hawaii hoping to continue their winning streak and keep their bowl hopes alive. After winning four straight, and two against ranked opponents, the Rainbows were not expected to give the Irish any problems. However, Notre Dame merely escaped with a 23-22 win. The Irish did not expect Charles Tharp to run for 144 yards and two touchdowns, and they certainly did not expect to be trailing the Rainbows 22-14 with 13:34 remaining in the fourth quarter. However, Powlus and the Irish were not going to let their dreams of going " bowling " slip away that easily. With 2:20 remaining in the game Ron Powlus connected with Raki Nelson for a 47 yard completion which set up an Irish comeback. Led by the ever consistent Denson, the Irish made it to the 3. Davie called in Scott Cengia to kick the most important punt of his life, a 20- yard field goal to keep the Irish hopes of a bowl bid alive. Cengia kicked the punt inside the right upright, giving Notre Dame the lead, the win, and a probable bowl bid. When all was said and done the Irish accepted an invitation to the Independence Bowl. However, they faced the daunting task of playing LSU for a second time, after defeating them earlier this season. The Tigers were able to get their revenge after being humili- ated 24-6 by the Irish at home. The Irish could not find a way to stop Rondell Mealey who rushed for 222 yards including a 26 yard game winning touchdown as LSU beat Notre Dame 27-9. Although the season ended on a bitter note, the Irish made great strides. They battled back in or- der to knock ofT several ranked teams, had a winning season, and went to a bowl game. This year Davie ' s job was to lay the foun- dation. Next year Davie looks to build on this season, hopefully producing a team that will once again be battling for a National Championship. Junior running back Autry Denson once again made a remarkable showing as he churned out 146 yards against West Virginia. 9JI if f Photo b y: Brandon Candura.

Soccer Sensations Shine Lady Irish Undefeated Through Regular Season The Notre Damewomen ' s soccer team has much to be proud of this season after posting a 23-1-1 record. Although losing a hard fought battle to Connecticut in the semifinals of the NCAAs by a score of 2-1, this season ' s squad played with heart, desire, and dedication. The team consisted of many talented players who worked together toward a common goal to be number one. Ranked second nationally throughout the regular season, they plowed through the competition. They beat then 3 Portland, 5 Duke, 5 Connecticut, and 12 Michigan by a combined score of 12-0. One of the keys to the team ' s success in 1997 has been the record-shattering pace of the defense, anchored by three time Ail- American Kate Sobrero. Her contributions to the Irish merited her the title of Big East Player of the Year as well. In 24 games, the opponents have scored only seven goals, an average of .29 goals per game, shattering the previous record of .56 set during the championship run of 1995. Not only has the defense been spectacular, but the offense has had stellar performances by several players, including freshmen Meotis Erikson and Anne Makinen. The Irish have scored a combined total of 134 goals in the regular season and tournament play and have only allowed 95 shots to their opponents. Among those leading the Irish is freshman sensation Anne Makinen, who led the team in scoring with 23 goals. But the wealth of the Irish did not stop there. The team consisted of three playersi who earned 50 points or more, as well as five others with 25 or more points. The highlight of the season may have been during the Adidas Lady Footlocker Classic held at Alumni Field. Playing in front of a sell- out crowd of 3,300, the Irish had an opportunity to avenge their 1-0 loss to North Carolina in the finals oi the NCAA tournament the year before. But because of threatening weather conditions, the game was terminated at 71:16 minutes of play with the score tied at 2.

Four of the fifteen finalists for the Missouri Athletic Club ' s Collegiate Player of the Year came from Notre Dame. Those included were Holly Manthei, Kate Sobrero, Jenny Streiffer, and Jen Grubb. Additionally, Manthei and Makinen were nominated for the Hermann Trophy. Several school records were broken throughout the season. As a team, they averaged 31 shots a game breaking the previous record of 23 shots back in 1996. Goalkeeper LaKeysia Beene set a Big East single-season record with an outstanding .18 goals against average and nine conference shutouts. Holly Manthei continued to build on her assist record she set last year by reaching her 100 th career assist against Duke during mid-season. Under the guidance of Chris Petrucelli, the Irish proved they were a team to contend with this season. As the seniors finished their careers as Domers, the rest of the team hopes to pick up where they left off this year in their winning ways.

Remaining a Powerhouse Men i Soccer Reaps the Rewards of Hard Work Ky Karen Milke The men ' s soccer team began its season with high goals and big dreams. They hoped to repeat as champions in the Big East and to return to the NCAA Tournament with the success of 1996. However, this year finished offas a successful season, with great strides toward rebuilding and increased expectation for the future. This is not to say that the Irish did not see outstanding success during this season. The talented team won over 10 games and improved their game with every week that passed. The group worked hard and came together to combat the loss of five senior starters. Top scorers who filled the void this year were senior Ryan Turner, with twelve goals and five assists, senior Bill Savarino, with four goals and six assists, and senior Scott Wells, with two goals and eight assists. The goal was protected consistently and impressively by junior Greg Velho, who played in everyone of the 21 games and allowed only 27 goals to get by him. He posted a .777 save average. The defense also was integral to the success of the Irish this season. Sophomores Alan Woods and Matt McNew, senior David Cutler and junior Phil Murphy all turned in excellent performances to shield the Irish from defeat time and time again. Both the offense and the defense were consistently able to rely upon the talents of midfielders, junior Matt Johnson and senior Joe Gallo, who were instrumental in the success of the Irish. The new talent that aided the Irish was impressively evident in freshman Reggie McKnight, who was die only rookie to play in all 21 games. He earned die rank of fourth leading scorer with four goals and three assists. He was joined in notoriety by fellow freshman Connor LaRose. These two freshmen and their underdassmen teammates will be integral for die future success ol die team. The Irish season culminated i the Big East competition, where the team was remarkabl) successful and made their mark upon die nation ' s teams. In theii first four Big East games, the Irish came out with a 4-0-1 record They remained unscored upon until their sixth league competition against Syracuse. The Irish completed a tough season with excellent results, weadiering die loss of five starters and proving dieir own present tal- ent. They will continue to be a force to be reckoned with on the soccer field. Sophomore Matt McNew was a key pan of the Irish defense this season. Appearing in all 21 games, McNew was a consistent contributor to the success of the team this year. Two time Monogram winner Ben Bocklage was a force on the Ii squad this season. The junior forward was essential in keeping the hall in Irish control. 148 Sports Junior midfielder Matt Johnson was a leader both on the field and off as co-captain and three time Monogram winner.

The fact that the team was young presented a significant challenge this season since the success of die team primary hinged on the development of several runners. Throughout the season the underclassmen consistently proved that diey were ready to make a significant impact. The underclassmen, led by freshmen Deeter, Laselle, and Klemmer proved to be one of the most talented groups in recent memory. Providing the leadership and experience, junior Mieke Walsh also paced the team with several strong finishes. The team began the season at the Buckeye Invitational where they posted a 1st place finish and placed three runners in the top five, narrowly defeating Penn State. Returning from an injury, Klemmer showed that she was healthy and was going to be an asset to this years team by placing second overall. The team continued to run well with a first place finish in the Valparaiso Invitational. They then proceeded to dominate the National Catholic Invitat ional by finishing 1st, 137 points ahead of St. Benedict. Facing difficult opponents at the Notre Dame Invitational the team finished in second place, merely 2 points behind Bowling Green. JoAnna Deeter led the team and finished in 5th place overall. A large amount of ranked opponents at the Furman Invitational presented a challenge to the team. Although the Irish posted a disappointing 14th place finish, one highlight of the race was the continued improvement of freshman Bridget O ' Brien. The young team showed their character and maturity by finishing 4th at the BIG EAST Championship. This was their highest finish since joining the conference. The team was led by Deeter and Klemmer, taking 16th and 18th place respectively. In the Distri Championship, Deeter a Klemmer, once again ran wel for the Irish.

Striding Towards Success Men ' s Cross Country Makes Waves Ky Karen Hilke The men ' s cross country team made excellent and unexpected advances during this year ' s season. The Irish were not even ranked to start off the season due to a crippling loss of three seniors, two of which were All-Americans, to graduation last year. But, the team did not let this initial lack of confidence dampen their spirit. The team rallied together to have an impressive season. The Irish managed to maintain a ninth place ranking in Division 1 for the season and scored a first place finish in the Big East. They finished off their season with an impressive twelfth place ranking in the NCAA. A disappointment to both the coach and the team was the fact that, despite their impressive season, there were no All-Americans named to this year ' s team. The season was filled with many success stories despite the fact that many underestimated the team. The loss of the three seniors was partially filled by two scoring freshmen, Ryan Shay and Anthony Alt, who stepped up their performances to consistently be among the top seven runners. The loss of Junior Tim Englehardt to an injury early in the season was a handicap for the Irish, as he also would have been among the top seven. However, despite this loss, the excellent performance of the freshmen, coupled with the work of former All-American Jason Rexing, and two seniors, Mike Conway and Scott Grace, helped to propel the Irish throughout their excellent season. The Irish are looking forward to continuing their success into next season. Despite the loss of the three seniors to graduation, the Irish have exciting prospects for anl excellent season.

Maintaining the Spirit Cheerleaders Encourage Irish Enthusiasm and Involvement Ky Courtney Kirtley When people throughout the country, and even throughout the world, hear the words " University of Notre Dame, " they often associate them with rich traditions and loyalty. Irish fans share an enthusiasm unequaled in college adiletics. Much of this spirit can be contributed to the dedication of the two squads of Notre Dame Cheerleaders. Their cheers, smiles, excitement and involvement are contagious. In March 1 997, the two squads were chosen and began a year-long season with head coach Jonette Minton. Practices along with weight and endurance training began immediately after they were selected. Throughout the summer, they trained individually and returned to campus in August to prepare for upcoming performances. Fall 1997 was particularly important because of the new stadium and the pep rallies held there. Both squads led cheers and chants to ignite the infamous Irish spirit for the next day ' s game. The Varsity squad continued to build enthusiasm with appearances around campus the mornings of games. Besides football, they also cheered for men ' s basketball. The Olympic squad brought Irish spirit to men and women ' s soccer, women ' s basketball, and volleyball. Another essential part of the Irish enthusiasm is the Leprechaun, Ryan Gee. His energy and excitement are evident as he leads football pep rallies, counts off push-ups after touchdowns, and defeats opposing mascots. Not only are the cheerleaders inspirational while performing, they are also inspirational as members of Notre Dame ' s student community. Despite long hours of practice, they uphold a firm commitment to community service. They demonstrate and encourage the Irish spirit as well as the belief in service to others.

In their third season in the Big East, the Irish captured their third straight Big East title. Although the 1997 campaign did not get off to a fast start, the Notre Dame men ' s golf team reemphasized the fact that Big East golf can be summarized in two words-Notre Dame. The season started out with the Hawkeye Intercollegiate, hosted by the University of Iowa. The Irish could only muster an eleventh place finish in a tournament that consisted of twelve teams. Despite consistent play from Kt Mam VanJossen sophomore Todd Vernon and senior Bryan Weeks, the Irish were out of sync and could not put together a solid showing. The Irish quickly regained their focus and showed signs of life at the Legends of Indiana, their next time out. Bryan Weeks became only the seventh Notre Dame golfer to card a 69 in the 1990s. Bolstered by Weeks ' record tying performance, the team stormed to a top third finish, placing sixth out of eighteen squads. At the Legends of Indiana, the Irish golfers began to show that they had what it takes to win the Big East. Next up for the Irish was the Big East Tournament at Blackthorn Golf Club in South Bend. After the first round of play, the Irish had a cpmfortable fourteen strike lead over rival Georgetown and a seventeen stroke cushion over Villanova and Syracuse. During the second round, the golfers had to deal with stiff winds and difficult pin placements. But on this day, Notre Dame exploded and posted a thirty-two stroke victory over a strong Seton Hall team. To go along with the team title, the Irish golfers captured numerous individual honors. Todd Vernon carded a three under par 141, the best ever 36-hole score in the history of Notre Dame golf, to take first place in the tournament. Seniors Brad Stanis and Bryan Weeks finished third and fourth, respectively to gain spots on the seven member Big East All- Conference squad. After capturing the Big East title, the Irish travelled to Louisville to compete in the twenty-three team Louisville Intercollegiate. Despite a disappointing sixteenth place finish, the Notre Dame Men ' s Golf team can walk away from the fall season with a strong sense of satisfaction, knowing that they are creating yet another Notre Dame dynasty.

Last year the Irish ended on a promising note by having both its coach, John MacLeod, and its star player, forward Pat Garrity, earn Big East honors. The team also made it to the National Invitational Tournament, which marked their first appearance in post- season play in five seasons. Hoping to carry this momentum into his final season, Garrity spent the summer competing around the world as a member of the United States Under-22 National Team and Ky Carolyn trenda was named Big East pre-season Indeed, over the course of Player of the Year. Along with Garrity, the team had a solid corps of players returning, including senior forward Derek Manner, junior center Phil Hickey, junior guard Antoni Wyche, and sophomore guard Keith Friel. In addition to the veterans, the season the team proved themselves to be competitive with any team they played. The season began with a convincing win against The Citadel and then a loss at Marquette. This trend would continue throughout the season as the team would win big only MacLeod strengthened the team to be defeated in the following by making some promising game, recruits, including guard Martin Inglesby, forward Leviticus Williamson, and center Hans Rassmussen. Consequently, the Irish looked to be competitive in their third season in the Big East. While this roller coaster type season provided some disappointment to those who had NCAA tournament hopes for the Irish, it certainly did not mean a lack of excitement. This excitement was perhaps most visible in the month January as the Irish defeated i first nationally ranked opponen in four years in West Virginia Syracuse. In the span of one week, t team was able to win a thrillei against the twenrieth-rankec Mountaineers, lose to Setor Hall, and then come back tc trounce the fifteenth-ranked Orangemen 83-63.

Bouncing Back Garrity Leads Solid Corps of Individuals Ky Carolyn trenda Individual accomplishments over the course of the regular season were certainly not lost in all of the excitement. Pat Garrity added more achievements to finish out his Notre Dame career. During the regular season, he was honored as Big East Player of the Week, broke the school record for consecutive games started, and became the third leading scorer in school history. Garrity also led the Big East in scoring as well as being among the league leaders in rebounding and field goal percentage. Adding to Garrity s successes was the emergence of sophomore guard Keith Friel. Friel was integral in the Irish victory over Syracuse pouring in thirty points, including eight three-pointers. Friel ' s effort earned him Big East Player of the Week honors. However, a thigh contusion suffered in the final moments of the St. John ' s game sidelined him for some key Big East contests in the final stretch of the regular season. Other members of the team stepped up as well. Center Phil Hickey provided toughness for the Irish, as he was the team ' s second leading scorer and rebounder behind Garrity. Senior captain Derek Manner also added to the inside game with his leadership and consistency. In the backcourt, junior Antoni Wyche added key points while freshman point guard Martin Inglesby had an impressive rookie year, starting every regular season contest, and leading the team in assists. The team combined its individual successes to concentrate on the last part of the season, which was dominated by Big East play. February proved to be a crucial month for the Irish. Success against conference leaders would mean a good seed in the Big East Tournament. The month started out with losses on the road against Rutger: ' and Georgetown. The team trier came back to their home cour to defeat Boston College. Yet, once again, the IrisJ could not maintain a winning streak as they dropped their nor three games to Miami Connecticut, and again tc Miami at home.

Bouncing Back Irish Fall to Providence in Post-season Ky Carolyn trenda After their impressive victory against Georgetown, however, the Irish dropped their final regular season game against Providence and were unable to sustain any momentum heading into the post-season. The team entered their third Big East tournament with a 13- 13 record and the ninth seed, and faced Providence in their first round game. The Friars proved to be an obstacle for the Irish once again. The squad battled from behind, but could not overcome Providence, and fell to the Friars 72-55. This first round loss ended the season for the Irish, who lost five of their last six games of the season. The loss also meant the the Irish remained winless in Big East Tournament play. Although there was some diappointments, overall the Irish did have a successful season. The team showed that it had both promise and heart in its victories over ranked opponents, and its abilities to respond to losses with exciting wins showed that the team refused to give up. The Irish continued to earn respect in the Big East. Big East honors were earned this year by both Pat Garrity and Martin Ingelsby. Garrity was named to the All-Big East First Team, and was the only repeat selection from last years team. Ingelsby earned an impressive honor in his first year of play by being named to the Big East All-Rookie Team. Another year with impressive Big East play means success for the Irish and their up- and-coming program. The program will lose a major part of that success, however, when Pat Garrity graduates. The two time GTE Academic Ail-American has been an integral part in the achievements of this program over the past four years, from the first games of Big East play to an appearance in the NIT, picking up Big East Player ofth Year and AP All-America honors along the way.

Overcoming Obstacles Irish Face High Expectations, Provide Exciting Season Ky Courtney Kittley After only three seasons in the Big East, Notre Dame women ' s basketball has proven to be a dominate force. However, Head Coach MuflFet McGraw and the twelve women on the 1997-98 team faced several obstacles. Coming off of the most successful season ever in the 20 year history of Notre Dame women ' s basketball, they were challenged by high expectations. Could they repeat their success? Secondly, the team entered the season with only one returning starter, senior Mollie Peirick. Despite these and other obstacles, this was an Irish team confident in their abilities and optimistic about the upcoming season. With a talented crop of underclassmen, they were eager to establish an identity and reputation of their own. Co-captains, Mollie Peirick and junior guard Sheila McMillen, found that their leadership was crucial to a winning team. Not only did both women provide reliable strength in the Irish backcourt, they also contributed dependable stability to the team itself. Along with senior Kari Hutchinson and other seasoned players, they developed a team attitude of dedication and hard work. This commitment to excellence was contagious and carried throughout the season. Also a crucial part of stabilizing the Irish were two returning guards. Sophomore Niele Ivey and junior Danielle Green filled these spots. Unfortunately, both women were sidelined in the 1996-97 season due to injuries. Their return proved essential to Notre Dame ' s success as they were the two strongest defensive players. Ivey, who started a majority of the games, received Big East Player of the Week awards after her strong showing against Rutgers. With these women leading, the Irish played two confidence- building exhibition games against the Brisbane Blazers and the Zala Volan Hungarian Tea Directly following, they opene their regular season with a wi over Butler. The next severa games were played on the roa before returning to the Joyce Center for three consecutive home matches. Throughout the season, the Irish had difficulty with theii away games, especially against Big East opponents. Five of the six Big East losses have come on the road. However, Notre Dame has seen much success at home. This season they reached 12 victories in the Joyce Center which is the most for the Irish in their 21 years of playing there.

Tradition Continues Fencing Takes Second Place at NCAAs Head Coach YvesAuriol once again led the Notre Dame men ' s fencing team to an outstanding regular season performance and successfulfinish at the NCAAs. The Irish had two returning All- Americans, seniors Carl Jackson in epee and junior Luke LaValle in sabre. Four-time All- American Jeremy Siek, who has moved off the strip and into the role of a graduate assistant coach, helped the Irish to another consistent and outstanding season. With a 25-1 regular season record, the Irish lost only one match, to first-ranked Penn State. A near perfect record such as this needed many contributors. Captain LaValle, who finished fifth at last year ' s NCAA Championships, led the team in going undefeated through most of the competitions this year. Senior epee captain Brian Sto n e qualified fo r the NCAA Midwest Regional Qualifiers. Junior foil captain Stephane Auriol boasted a .710 career win percentage as he started off the season with a perfect 10-0 in the first home meet of the season at the Joyce Center Fieldhouse. For the underclassmen, freshman Andrzej Bednarski made a big impact in his first year on the sabre team, while senior Brian Banas and junior Stephen McQuade contributed greatly to the sabre squad by providing leadership and experience. The Irish ended the regular season ranked third nationally and were prepared to face diffic ult co mp etition in the post-season. With a strong corps of upperclassmen, the team proved that they were one of the best teams in the country. The Irish looked impressive, capturing a first place finish in the Midwest Team Championships. This performance propelled the Irish to the NCAA Tournament. Although the team did well in the tournament, they fell short of a national championship. Entering the last day of competition, the Irish had the lead by three. However, in the end, three time defending champion, Penn State, managed to edge out the Irish by a score of 149-147. Although the loss to Penn State thwarted the team ' s chances of winning a national championship, they still ended the season ranked second in the nation, as they have the last two years. Photo by.

The Future of Success Newest Varsity Sport Takes the Field for the First Time Ky Courtney Kirtley With twenty-four competitive women and a new, innovative coaching staff, the 1997 women ' s lacrosse team kicked off their first year as a Varsity sport at Notre Dame. They came together under the leadership of Head Coach Tracy Coyne who also began her first year at Notre Dame. Coyne was one of the most respected Division III coaches and, with the Irish, she aspires to attain the same status at the Division I level. She motivated the team with the ambition to follow the success of the other Varsity sports. She used the year to develop the fundamentals: stickwork, passing, and catching. While working to improve their skills, the team focused on the simple goals of doing their best and being satisfied with their performance. These goals led to a solid inaugural season. On March 12, 1997, the women played and won their first game against Fairfield in Ashland, VA. They were led by tri-captains Mara Grace, Tara Pierce, and Eileen Regan. Grace and Pierce saw women ' s lacrosse attain the Varsity status in their senior years, while Regan was a junior. A strong point of the Irish offense was an attack line of players who have good speed and know-how to find the open cage. Three of the team ' s best athletes and scorers were Cara Buchanan, Kerry Callahan, and Stephanie Fox. In the midfield, captains Pierce and Regan were joined by Kathryn Cavanaugh, Holly Michael, and Colleen Reilly. The defense consisted of a number of players including Kerry Audley, Debby Prisinzano, Jennifer Lamprecht, Meg Schmitt, and Andrea Alloco. Finally, Catherine Simmons was the starting goalie. The first year squad was mainly comprised of players who were members of Notre Dame ' s women ' s club lacrosse team. The Irish finished competitive 1 game season wit a 5-4 record. This group face difficult opponents, the trials c being a newly established Varsit sport, and a transition to a ne coaching staff. They overcame these ani other obstacles and establishe the foundation of their status as successful Varsity sport. I summary of the team ' s attitudt Coach Coyne remarked that " It exciting to be part of a ne program, to represent Notr Dame and to have th opportunity to go out an establish a winning tradition.

The Irish proved themselves once again in the BIG EAST by capturing sec- ond place finishes in both sea- sons. The hard work of all of the athletes was reflected through their various achievements both individually and as a team. The Irish sent a record number of qualifiers to the NCAA indoor championships this year. The seven runners sent to participate included senior Jeff Hojnacki, who was the first Irish athlete to compete in more than one event at the NCAA. He earned All-American honors in the 800 as well as with the distance medley team that placed eighth. The team also featured All- American athletes senior Derek Seiling, and juniors Danny Payton, and Jason Rexing. This distance medley team went into the race with an imposing reputation as the team with the fastest time in the NCAA this season and a school record of 9:39.39 sec- onds. The other men ' s team qualifier was Allen Rossum, who ran the 55 meters and placed seventh in the competi- tion adding to his career bests, particularly through his sec- ond place finish at the BIG EAST. The outdoor champion- ships brought just as much success for the Irish. A record five qualifiers were in atten- dance at the NCAA. In addition, the qualifiers competed in three different events, the most events that Notre Dame was represented in since 1945. Again, senior Hojnacki ran the 800. Junior Jason Rexing competed in the 1 0,000, and junior Errol Will- iams gained All-American honors for his performance in the 110 meter hurdles. In field events, freshman Marshaun West posted the longest jump this season in the conference.

This year was especially symbolic, be- cause it ushered in a new era of Notre Dame football. After 1 1 years under the supervision of Coach Lou Holtz, the reigns were passed on to the former Defensive Coordinator, Bob Davie. The Blue and Gold Game on April 19th, 1997 was the first offi- cial game in which Davie assumed his role as Head Coach of the Notre Dame Football Team. It was a chance not only for the fans but also the football players and coaching staff to get a preview of what the team would look like in the fall. On the April 19th Blue and Gold Game, the Gold Team gave a strong showing and beat the Blue Team 1 to 6. Jarious Jackson, quarterback of the Gold Team, looked strong with his 80 yard touchdown pass to Malcom Johnson. This gave the Gold Team a good starting point which led to their eventual victory. This game was not only a preview of how the new team of 1 997 would play, but it also gave a great amount of insight into how the team would be organized and would ulti- mately run. The second game on April 26th, 1997 showed an enthusiastic and positive attitude on the part of the team. Davie was impressed with the outcome of the game, which was a Blue victory over the Gold Team of 24 to 10, and felt that the team was exhibiting great teamwork, as evidenced on the field. Senior tailback, Clement Stokes, and junior linebacker, Joe Thomas, both made impressive showings.

Bookstore Basket- ball, entering its 26th year in the Spring of 1997, brought with it the intensity, enthusiasm, and controversy that has made it a tradi- tion. 591 teams took to the courts in early April and each took their place in Bookstore history. However, only a select number of teams stood out from the rest, whether for their creativity or for their skill. Many will recall the outlandish names, and specifically the team Dos Goldkamps avec Duct Tape, who played an entire game covered in duct tape. Such creative efforts may divert our attention through the early parts of the tournament, but they slip into the background when the competition heats up and it comes down to skill. The men ' s championship game between Swoosh III and Dos Geses was a thrill ride for many loyal fans. The game was close throughout, and in the final moments each team had amassed 20 points. Then tour- nament MVP, Mike Denvir, stepped up to hit two foul shots and won the game for Dos Geses by a slim margin of victory, 22-20. The women ' s division concluded with Team 13 beating SKB ' s Least Fav ' s, 21-13. Bookstore Basketball is an open forum which allows athletes and amateurs to come together and play as equals. It is not inclusive to age or gender, allowing students, faculty, and employees to play on men ' s, women ' s, or co-ed teams. Therefore the games become an omen of spring and of commonality, providing us with an excel- lent example of the spirit of the Notre Dame community. by Shannon O ' Keefe 1202 Year In Review Strategy became an important factor in Bookstore Basketball.

Every year the Fisher Regatta gives students a chance to, yet again, display true Notre Dame spirit. Whether you are looking for a great time, a little competition or an afternoon of entertainment, the Fisher Regatta is the place to be. The Spring of 1997 marked the 14th year of Fisher Regatta cel- ebration. Students jumped at the chance to show-off their creativ- ity and spirit with over 30 entries. Everyone wanted to steal the show and tried everything from brightly colored tye dye to space invader costumes. Breen Phillips modeled their boat after a pink pig while Keenan won the creativity award with their pirate ship. The Fisher Regatta definitely puts on a good show for its partici- pants and spectators, and two lucky dorms walk away feeling like they have battled like champions. This time Alumni and Lewis Halls crossed the lake first and grabbed the winning title for the year. Despite all the excitement, the Regatta is not just an afternoon of fun and games. Fisher Hall donates the profits from the event to the Andre House, a homeless shelter in Arizona, making the Fisher Regatta a perfect opportunity to have a good time while helping out a good cause. by Kristy Katzmann [204 Year In Review The girls from P.E. were out of this world with their Regatta at- tire.

By the end of the night, after calling on such musical genres as folk, hip-hop, rap, and blues, the band, too, discredited the label. With two turntables and a microphone, Beck enthusiastically en- tertained adoring fans on April 8, 1997. Stepan Center was far from the dreadful First Year departmental exam site on April 8, and though the concert was a bit delayed, it was definitely worth the wait.

After twenty long months of planning, construction, and anticipation, there stood the newly renovated Notre Dame Football Stadium ready to open its gates to thousands of eager fans looking forward to another football season. The fifty million dollar renovation began after the last game of the 1 995 home season prompted by the intense demand for tickets. A total of approximately 21 ,000 seats, 16,000 of which reserved for alumni, were added to compensate for the demand bringing the ca- pacity of the stadium up to about 80,990. The expansion of the stadium, which was foreseen even in 1 930, was finally complete and prepared to usher in a new era for Notre Dame football. Pre-dedication activities included tours of the stadium and the first pep rally was held inside the stadium. The new football coach, Bob Davie, wanted the students to be the first ones to enter the stadium, and so it was. The gates opened at 5:30 p.m. (continued on page 214) ' .

To fulfill the charge of the King or to fulfill an appetite for terror, thrill seekers forged their way behind St. Mary ' s Lake to an omi- nous Carroll Hall where they were greeted by eerie music, cryptic smoke, and men in black, ready to usher them to pending doom. Once inside, participants were forced to wait in suspenseful black- ness before they were allowed to view the frightful maze Carroll residents had prepared throughout the previous week. A pair of tour guides led terror addicts to the first skit of horror where they were prepped for their hair-raising pursuit by a mad surgeon. Black- ened corridors and restricting crawl spaces led students room to room to witness the likes of a disturbed stand-up comedian and his lunatic brother, a pyromaniac bum victim, deranged zombies, psycho storytellers and the annual demented chainsaw maniac, ready to tor- ment any participant willing to brave the scene. For charity ' s sake, the residents of Carroll Hall successfully ter- rified students of Notre Dame with their black trash bags, red paint, and creative costumes this year.

Keeping to a strictly Shakespearean theme this year, the Com- munication and Theatre Department began the Mainstage season with Tom Stoppard ' s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, chronicling the self-examination of Hamlet ' s bumbling school chums. The title characters were brilliantly enacted by Dan Sullivan (Rosencrantz) and Drew Rausch (Guildenstern), while Chris Kudlacz and Louise Edwards led the supporting cast as Hamlet and the Player, respectively.

" After twelve long hours on the bus, I couldn ' t wait to ex- plore the city. It was interesting to see the Capitol Building and I love the Museum of American History. By far, however, the Pro- Life Rally and March left the most lasting impression on me, " said sophomore Julia Powers. Sophomore Colleen Gaughen captured the event in these words, " We gathered together from different backgrounds, differ- ent places, and different religions.. .for one very simple, very pas- sionate reason - saving lives.

Hundreds of humor-starved students trek over to the Joyce Center, wait in line, and hope that the tickets will not sell out, but as usual, they always do. Of course, it is Keenan Revue, the much anticipated annual laugh fest that is needed on such dreary winter days. This year ' s fun and entertainment took place on January 29, 30, and 31, 1998 with the unveiling of new skits and talent. Scrutinizing everything from security to dorm life, football to relationships, the men of Keenan Hall displayed their fresh humor and wit much to the delight of coveted ticket holders. Each night, the lights came on, the music started, and skit by skit was met with laughs from the audience. The Keenan Hall comedians warmed up the crowd with the dork lock skit and moved on until they had covered everything from Urban Plunge to Austin Powers. Of course, the Revue would not have been complete with- out a Titanic skit in which " girls " from Saint Mary ' s were kindly informed of winged unicorns waiting to rescue them from the sink- ing ship. Hours of brainstorming, organization, and practice paid off for the 22 nd time as Brother Scully ' s boys presented yet another memorable Keenan Revue. by Mariela Marin ,26 Year In Review Guest judges Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Coulier and Arnold Schwarzenegger evaluated Keenan Hall perfor- mances such as Showtfuys, a one- man strip show.

Monday, February 23, 1998 saw the outset of the 68 th annual Ben- gal Bouts. The yearly boxing tournament pitted underclassmen against one another through three rounds of competition. Ranging in weight classes from 125 pounds to the heavyweights, the fighters trained long hours every week in a small, mirror-lined room within the depths of the Joyce Center. Along with the excitement of sweat splattering those in the front rows, spectators were treated to the anticipation of top-seeded fighters and re-matches from previous contests. Free from controversy surrounding the wearing of head- gear, the novelties showcased during this year ' s competition were numerous. Sophomore Tom Biolchini extended the family tradi- tion of his father and brother with an appearance in the finals. In a cruel twist of fate, senior captain Ryan Rans broke both of his hands in a semi-final victory. Even though competition in the square circle was fierce, the motivation behind the fighting was benign. As always, all proceeds from the pugilistic venue went to relieve the impoverished masses of Bangladesh. by Nicole Parks Year In Review Hard work and fine-tuned tech- nique were put to the test when fighters finally found themselves in the ring. The road to the cham- pionship fight of Bengal Bouts seems the most grueling of all athletic competition. Semi-final bouts gave well- trained fighters the chance to display irrefutable talent. A fine showing of the fundamentals of boxing drew large crowds. Photo by: Stan Evans A definite shoe-in. Donating all proceeds to help relieve suffer- ing in Bangladesh adds much in- tegrity to the annual mid-semes- ter event.

Most us of have been spoken to about it. A few of us may even know someone who has it. AIDS is an issue we have had to and must continue to face, even here at Notre Dame. With that in mind, SUB sponsored an AIDS education week beginning on January 31, 1998 and ending on Feb- ruary 8, 1998. The week began with the showing of the movie And the Band Played On and included several other events such as panel discussions and a showing of Philadelphia. The two main events which attracted students the most were the lecture by Jeanne White- Ginder, head of the Ryan White Foundation, and the AIDS quilt on display in Stepan Center. The quilt, begun in 1 987, commemorates the lives of friends and family who have been taken by the disease. On its second visit to the Notre Dame campus, the quilt consisted of only 400 of the original 43,000 panels. The panels bear the names, images, favorite p air of jeans, flowers, and teddy bears that characterized the lives of individual victims. The quilt serves as a powerful display of the loss caused by AIDS and as a reminder of why we search so in- tensely for a cure. by Mariela Marin ?30 Year In Review 1998 marked the second annual visit of the AIDS quilt to campus. Viewing the quilt and reflecting on the lives lost brought to the fore- front the dire need for a cure. Photo by: Kevin Dalum. Observe Unity and love were main themes of the 1998 AIDS awareness week. The ceremonial unfolding of the AIDS quilt displayed just these emotions as team members encircled the quilt hand-in-hand. The AIDS quilt is comprised of unique pieces representing the lives of those lost to the disease Of the 43,000 names that make up the entire quilt, only 400 fit in Stepan Center.

However, this success comes in tiny steps. It begins with college applications and it does not end. The recognition a Notre Dame degree merits will attract interviews, acceptance letters and blos- soming careers in many fields. Though seniors may be frightened by the concept of facing " the real world, " the vast array of opportunities awaiting them must overshadow the fear. They have a plethora of knowledge, discipline and motivation which will pave their way in life. Though this path has not and will not be effortless, the goals Notre Dame graduates achieve along the way will be Stepping Stones to suc- cess. Cornerstone Joseph A.

A Perfect Roommates For Four Years Room 134 of Lewis Hall may be just another dorm room to the average person; but to Jomol Cyriac and Jamie Przybysz, it has been home for the last four years. Jamie and Jomol are unusual because they are two of the few students who have remained roommates throughout all four years at Notre Dame. Making dieir situation even more unique is that even their room has remained the same. While people around them have come and gone, the pair have remained a fixture of 1 -North. The consistency of Jamie and Jomol can in part be attributed to a medical condition of Jamie ' s which led to progressive hearing loss in high school. Their room was thus equipped with a special fire alarm for Jamie during freshman year, so the two decided to just keep the same room. However, it took more than just Jamie ' s condition to keep the two together for four years. Both Jamie and Jomol agree that after getting along so well their first year, they saw no reason to change a good thing. Bodi also cited good communication skills and flexible attitudes as traits that helped them stay together. Even more important to the relationship was the intermixing of personalities. According to Jamie, " We are alike enough to get along, but different enough so that our relationship is not boring. " The roommates have definitely learned from each other throughout dieir years at Notre Dame. Due to Jamie ' s hearing loss, Jomol has expanded her communications skills with die deaf. Although she knows the sign language letters, she and Jamie have developed other ways of nonverbal communication to code for such things as going to lunch or dinner. Jamie has also learned from Jomol ' s tremendous organiza- tional skills. In fact, the two laugh about their first conversation in which Jomol took notes to remember detailed facts about Jamie ' s life. Jamie and Jomol are two special seniors, not because of Jamie ' s condition, but because mey have been able to maintain a close living relationship in spite of the stresses of college life. Hopefully, their four years together will serve as a cornerstone for a lifelong friendship. Jamie Prysbysz and Jomoi Cyriac have endured all four years together at Notre Dame. Amy Rosinski David J.

Gray Finance Spanish Danielle E. Gray Psychology A Special Bond Senior Tw ' ns At Notre Dame Choosi ng a college-a home for the next, and arguably the most important, four years of one ' s life-can be a veiy stressful and difficult decision. However, certain members of the Class of 1 998 have had the privilege of having their lifelong best friend suck with them through the past four years. Twins at Notre Dame agree that they do indeed share a special bond. The decision to come to Notre Dame together was not a difficult one for the twins here. Frank and Ed Pok said that staying together was not an issue, since they knew they would be separated at some point in their lives; but Notre Dame turned out to be the best option of all the college acceptances for both of them. Vanessa and Melissa Norris had decided that, no matter where they were accepted, they would attend the same college. The Norrises believe that they have " switched " personalities- Vanessa says she used to be the bubbly one, and Melissa was more quiet and serious. After coming to Notre Dame, Vanessa became more reserved, and Melissa became more outgoing. The Poks say they have become more alike while living through similar experiences at Notre Dame, though they have maintained the! r individuality. Not that most people could tell the difference. The three sets of twins interviewed say that they have always been confused for each other on campus mostly by professors. Aaron and Brett Tucker say that they answer to each other ' s names and have met twice as many people through each other. As far as life after Notre Dame goes, the Norrises see diemselves eventually working together in the same dry, even though they will be separated for a brief period of time immediately following graduation. The Tuckers, members ofNavy ROTC, will be separated as they follow different Navy programs after graduation. Separation will be achallenge for them, as it will be their first time apart for so long. All rJiree sets of twins agree that they are definitely best friends. The} ' know each other ' s moods and deepest thoughts, and they have become closer at Notre Dame-but not interdependent. And when asked a typical " twin " question if they could read each other ' s minds the Norrises answered in unison with a resounding " NO! " Graduating from Notre Dame means separation from a life together for Brett and Aaron Tucker ... at least for a while. Padmaja Itikala |264 Seniors Noah W.

EiX P eri ' ence It does not seem like that long ago that you walked into your dorm for the first time. You were probably excited, confused, maybe a bit lonely. In the midst of this, there was one hand that reached out to you and one smile that helped put it all into place. This was the welcome of your R.A., one of your first contacts to the Notre Dame family. Then you blink, and suddenly you are a senior. How different the world looks now. Yet for a group of seniors, that freshman year experience is not quite so far away, because now it is their turn to offer the welcome. They are the Resident Assistants who are experiencing their turn at trying to make a difference in the lives of those in their section and hall. As most R.A.S will tell you, you cannot know what the job will be like until you it. No job descriptions and no stories from past R.A.s can possibly prepare you for all that lies ahead late-night trips to the emergency room, breaking up parties, losing touch with your friends who move off-campus. But neither can anyone possibly describe to you that incredible feeling of getting die first smile out of a homesick freshman, enjoying your first section event, or having the first person come talk to you as their friend. Being an R.A. is a unique chance to minister to your peers, to be both friend and guide. It also offers that chance to join together with your hall staff and to grow with them throughout the year. " One of the best parts of being an R.A. is being a part of a team of guys that cares so much for the dorm and the community that we ' re trying to develop, " notes John Menicucci, Jr., a Keough Hall R.A.. It is that vital team that strengthens each R.A. and creates friendships that are lasting and unlike any other. All in all, the people are what make the R.A. experience. From the staff bonding at R.A. training, the late nights with section mates, to looking at your freshmen as you prepare for graduation and seeing how they have grown over the year, each moment teaches you so much about yourself and what it truly means to be a part of this Notre Dame family. Welsh R.A.s help dedicate their new home with the Welsh family. Sue Christie 280 Seniors Katharine R. Levy Douglas L. Lohse Chemistry-Business Matthew C.

We give advice on classes and personal life to the underclassmen and many of us are active in clubs and organizations around campus. Certain members of the sen ior class also choose to step forward into a more visible leadership role; diese student leaders work to represent the student body in various ways. The responsibilities of each student leader vary widely from directing dorm event programming, to acting as a liason between students and die administration, to managing large councils, agendas, and budgets. The work can be tremendous, but the leaders agree that their aim is to share the knowledge the} ' have acquired previously with the student body and future students. Matt Szabo, a Student Senator, is enthusiastic about the opportunities students have to implement change on campus; other student leaders share Szabo ' s enthusiasm for student involvement. life in the spotlight is not always all giggles. Business sometimes forces academics and other aspects of student life to take a backseat. For instance, Hall Presidents Council Co-Chair Mark Fennell says he is often too busy to do schoolworkon Tuesdays-the meeting day for HPC. Student Body President Matt Griffin often has to miss classes to keep up with business affairs, though he says his professors have been understanding. Leaders often take the blame for a variety of issues that are out of their control. The risk of sacrificing social aspects of being a senior for time commitments that come with die job Is also always present. Nevertheless, these saident leaders enjoy perks not normally experienced by most students at Notre Dame. They get to meet important administrative officials the people most students read about in the Observer on a regular basis. They also participate in special functions, such as the flag presentation ceremony at football games. Most students on campus know these students ' names well. Student leaders also benefit by seeing how the university operates behind the scenes. According to Beth Nolan, Senior Class President, camaraderie between student leaders is tight since many of them often see each other during late nights in LaFortune. Notre Dame offers many opportunities to make a difference and enhance the time spent at college. Student leaders have elected to make their mark on the university by working to improve life for the current and future saident body . . . hats off to each and every one of them for a job well done. Matt Szabo, Morrissey Student Senator, gets down to business Pddmdifl Itikdltt with another agenda. OlgaM.Ojeda Preprofessional Studies French KelleyL.

Shepard Theology Matthew D. Sherman Chemical Engineering Aww0 Friends Senior Bar Scene It is Thursday night. After a long week of studying, it is time to just relax and have some fun with friends. This entails watching " Must See T.V., " ordering Papa John ' s and for many seniors, taking the weekly walk or drive over to Senior Bar. Like a refuge, Senior Bar offers a place for seniors to spend time with their classmates without dealing with the stress of arranging rides or crowds of local folks. After three years of waiting, seniors finally have a place on campus where they can come together, leaving everything else aside tor a while. Walking through the door, it is immediately obvious that this is a place where students have come to unwind. There ' s the usual crew playing darts or shuffleboard, a group tucked away in the back playing pool, and plenty of people dancing to Chumbawumba and Copa Cabana. You can always find those engineers just coming from the computer lab, the business majors discussing today ' s presentation, and the group of R.A.s who have sought some time to just relax and be a senior. You might even find a couple of rectors engaging in the social scene if you look around a little. From the students working behind the bar to those chatting at tables, Senior Bar is clearly a place focused on the Notre Dame community. Before you know it, that 2 A.M. hour has arrived, and realizing that " you don ' t have to go home, but you can ' t stay here, " students file out either to the Linebacker or back home. As they leave, with catchy dance tunes still echoing in their heads and their Senior Bar cup in hand, there is a sense of a community experience that has been shared. As seniors, you finally appreciate the limited time you have to share with your classmates, your friends, the people who have so strongly shaped your Notre Dame experience. With this in mind, Senior Bar becomes one more way to enjoy that time, one more source of memories for years to come. Many seniors turned out for for a night of bonding at Senior Bar ' s " Halloween Night. " Sue Christie Seniors Lisa C. Shoemaker Science Preprofessional Studies Spanish Michael W.

An explorer of the mind and spirit, Ben held in his midst a longing and an ability to investigate and appreciate the vast dimensions of the human condition. Though he, as all of us, was far from understanding the mystery, Ben ' s insight and curiosity brought new meaning to life ' s significance and depth. Remember Ben as a questioner, as a seeker of truths, and as an intellectual. Remember him as an adventurer and a lover of nature. Remember Ben as a giver, a poet, and as a friend. Perhaps the most powerful thing one can say about Ben ' s life, about anyone ' s life, is that he loved unconditionally, lived passionately, and is missed intensely. He is gone far too soon, but he leaves a powerful legacy to those who love him. Ultimately, there is no better way to express what Ben strived for and achieved in his life than to let Ben speak for himself. Oh, to freely feel, To freely speak, To freely love Without the interference of human weakness, This is heaven. -Ben Trigg Submitt ed By: Katie Lukes Ben 1976-1997 Justin rumbau0t? 1976-1998 Tragedy, in its unique way, seems to play games with time. Justin was with us not long ago. He enjoyed the warm days of early February with us. Then, one Sunday morning we ate lunch, he went off to do work, and he was gone. Sometimes these intervening mondis seem like years, sometimes like hours. In that time, the shock has lessened, the emotions have dulled, but our memory of him has not faded. Some days, I envision him right beside me. I imagine him smiling and I cannot help but smile. When he talked, his voice boomed, when he laughed it was not with his face, but with his entire body, when he was upset, you could tell just looking at him. Justin ' s expressions reflected the depth of his sincerity and honesty. Talking to Justin, you never doubted his earnestness. Those who knew Justin realized that he had a dignity and confidence all his own. He was happy knowing he was helping oth- ers. He was hopeful because he had faith in God and humanity. Many people at Notre Dame have experienced Justin ' s good will, kindness, and generosity. I found Justin to be a person I could trust, whose advice I could seek at any time, someone who was always able to cheer me up. He seemed to embody the best in us. Tragedy, because it makes us reflect, even for a few moments, brings to light that which we may otherwise take for granted. Justin left this world too early. For all the opportunity which he will never see, I am sorry. For all the hope, happiness, and guidance which he gave us, I am grateful.

It still is f ' today. The ROTC Program is the largest organiza- tion on campus. They are rarely recognized as such. Members of ROTC can achieve two goals at one time. They can serve their country as well as relieve the burden of college tuition. A ROTC student is different from the typical student. Not only must he or she fulfill scholastic responsibilities, but must also fulfill military duties. As the inscription reads above a doorway to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart: " God. Country. Notre Dame. " The cornerstone of the ROTC student. 1338 Cornerstone Our American flag, symbol of civic and military pride, hangs high before the start of each football game as the National Anthem is played. ounc.

A large percent- age of students continue to do so as varsity ath- letes in college. Yet, the majority of athletic ac- tivity on campus is less organized. Intramural sports are a very popular activity that give many athletes a chance to work-out and enjoy camraderie. Other students use athletics as a re- lease from the stress created by academic respon- sibilities. For others, it is a chance to be social and enjoy the rarity of good weather. Whatever the motivation, it is certain that Notre Dame stu- dents use many opportunities to get physical. 1340 Cornerstone Tossing a frisbee is a common activity on the quad. When spring finally returns it is time to get outside and play.

From class rings, to sweatshirts, to cheering at football games, the student body is proud to be here. Not only is the student body proud, but so are their parents. Alumni, too, take pride in their Fighting Irish heritage. As fans we are a ferocious crowd. As students we are hard- working and achieve results. As members of the community we try to make a positive impact by volunteering. We accomplish these goals with a dignity of which other schools cannot boast. 342 Cornerstone In the newly renovated Knute Rockne Stadium, an Irish Guardsman gazes onto the field.

For some people, at- tending Notre Dame is a life-long dream. From recommendations to essays, the application process is both nerve-racking and difficult. The number of students accepted is approximately one quarter of those who apply. Once you have arrived it does not get any easier. It is estimated that Notre Dame has the highest workload in the nation. With coursework, activities and social life all competing for scarce time, Notre Dame students quickly learn how to find a balance. Yet,students still feel the need to succeed in all that they do. s nil 1344 Cornerstone K lie to die ifr III 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 M From - m BIN E0 bed The doors to the library are nearly never shut.

When people attempt to describe the intangible at- mosphere of Notre Dame, they find it difficult to select the appropriate words. Some relate it to the nostalgia of stories about the haunting of Washing- ton Hall, others to the mysterious glow from the Grotto. Nonetheless there is a gripping sensation which surrounds Notre Dame. This feeling inspires one to return and wander the campus again to per- haps discover the nature of this spirit. 1346 Cornerstone A damp sidewalk turns (o gold: as dusk approaches, the Notre Dame skyline is mysteriously reflected.

Yet, students and faculty continued to brave South Bend to form the university Notre Dame is today. Current students continue to make similar sacrifices to attend the university. Some students give up relaxing summers to feverishly earn tuition money, while their parents work two jobs to help. Other students make 24 hour car rides or eight hour flights to reach South Bend. Many students will not see their families for months at a time. Yet like our forefathers, Notre Dame students will sacrifice any- thing to walk the snow-lined paths of campus. 1348 Cornerstone Sidewalks display evidence of students braving snow and the elements to reach class. Students make other sacrifices, such as family and finances, to be- come Notre Dame Alumni.

It was an accident that we began this venture together. It was a test, that is having two Editors-in-Chief, as well as thousands of miles between us. Both of us are excited and proud to have had this opportunity. The staff this year has been phenomenal. We do not know if we will be able to match it next year. We are a group of rookies; it is true. Yet we have pulled together as a team and become veterans. Katy Gallagher ' s frankness and quiet humor were valuable in theme brainstorming and brought the Campus Life to life. She also ably finished all her work in one semester. We would also like to thank Jackie Ramsey for her aid. The Academics section saw a new focus as a result of Allison Fashek ' s experience in the field and excellent writing style. We ' d also like to thank her for finishing all her work so expediently. The Senior section is the largest section of this book. Padmaja Itikala performed her duties with diligence and precision. We thank her for sacrificing part of her final year to produce a senior section that outdid past years. Joanna Fee was a great help to the book and staff. Her dedication does not go unnoticed. Amanda Bona and Karen Cassell did a good job of coordinating the photo shoots and creating a well-rounded representa- tion of Notre Dame ' s organizations. Amanda has created a new precedent. Notre Dame athletics are an essential part of the university. Chad Doran spent countless all-nighters making certain his spreads maintained a standard of excellence. Without Courtney ' s assistance and cheerful attitude the book would not have been what it is. Sarah McDonough ' s stylized designs gave the book an innovative look at a Year-In-Review. We thank Sarah for her invigorating personality and outlook. Her unique wit lightened up the office many days. This yearbook would not be complete without photographs and Alison Main. She has formed order from chaos and fulfilled all our expectations. Her gentle persistence allowed the entire staff to have photos at our fingertips, as well as filling in whenever and wherever we needed her. Nicole. What can we say? Nicole Rund has been one of the most important elements of this book. She has been our link between semesters. Able to answer any question we have, she will humbly give an excellent opinion we can trust. Her sharp eye and relentless precision have allowed us to depend on her at all times. Her stable, yet sometimes whimsical personality have been a delight to both of us. No one could fill your shoes. We thank you for all the sacrifices you have made and the willingness to put up with the two of us. Carol Taylor was a dependable source of information and help as always. Her cheerful smile is always appreciated. Along with the Student Activities staff she made many resources available to us. Our advisor, Adele Lanan, has been a confidant and leader. She has always kept our best interest in mind. We are infinitely appreciative that she was willing to risk hiring both of us as editors, especially considering the extenuating circumstances. 1330 Cornerstone LouHrt ifflfotte Ipoftsbfo " 1 " 1 ;teveConi M ValsWfln Last rAtoto yaOod iPadk ipo idi lames Paaort tocaPfb (elyBento UdeCosrio My Potter ta Evans LS.G:: taMaspors ' :.

Chad Carman kept us up and running. Steve Noonan and Wes Evard provided quality photographic services. Our West Coast correspondent, Greg Rosalia deserves much thanks for shooting many athletic events we could not have covered otherwise. Sports Information staff members Pete LaFleur and Eric Wachter, along with their colleagues, were a great source for athletics. Steve Connelly and Mary Kay Kreienberg of Lauren Studios helped us with our senior portraits. Joy Boley and Valerie Tanke of Walsworth Publishing have often gone above and beyond the call of duty; we realize and appreciate their efforts. Last, we would like to thank our friends and family for the phone calls and visits to the office when things get rough around here. They keep life centered and remind us that, though the yearbook is important, there are more important things in life. Thanks for being there. You give us the confidence to do this job and the moral support to keep us going. Thank you all, John and Danielle.
