Tlie Library was built on the historic Carrier Field on wl-iich Kiiute Rexikne ' s teams played, and opened its doors on September 18,1 963 , as the Memorial Library-, at the start of Notre Dame ' s 122nd acadeniic year. In 1987 it was renamed for President Emeritus Theodore M. Hesburgh, CS.C. " " Wlien the Hesburgh Library opened, its most distiiictive exterior feature, the ' mural, ' had not yet been installed. Tlie artist Millard Sheets was commissioned to create a work large enough to cover the southern face of the tower, visible from the football stadium. Its theme was to be saints and scholars throughout the ages; tliis was suggested by Father Hesburgh. " " With its size (210 feet tall), prominent kxiation, and eye-catching Word of Life mural, the Library attracts the attention of even the most casual visitor, and asserts itself as a dramatic symbol of Notre Dame ' s aspirations to academic excellence. Tlie building thus functions witliin a time-honored tradition in which respect for learning is made tangible by the special place accorded to library arcliitecture in the overall context of a campus. " -Taken from the University Libraries Vebsite, 2003 Opening Legendary Heroes " It was the success of Knute Rockne ' s Notre Dame football teams - plus the legendary coach ' s own personal building blueprint - that prompted the addition of the original Notre Dame Stadium to the University ' s athletic plant back in 1930. The Irish first played their games on Carrier Field, then located just north of the current stadium site. But as the University ' s national football rq utation expanded, thanks to the coaching of Rockne, the need for a new home for the Irish was voiced since no more than 30,000 fans could squeeze into the Cartier facility. " " Though Rockne had a chance to coach in the new facility only in its initial season of use, he took a personal hand in its design. The sod from Cartier Field was transplanted into the new Stadium, but Rockne insisted on its use for football only. He kept the area between the field and the stands small to keep sideline guests, as he called them, to a minimum - and he personally supervised the parking and traffic system that remained much the same until the 21,150-seat addition in 1997. " " Since that 1930 opening, the Irish have compiled an impressive " 284-84-5 (.768) " mark in Notre Dame Stadium. During 25 of those seasons the Irish did not lose at home. " " The spirit that was imbued by the Rockne era - and has been sustained by seven Heisman Trophy winners and dozens more Ail-Americans who have competed on that turf - has changed little in more than seven decades of football at Notre Dame Stadium. " " For all the legendary players and memorable moments it has hosted on its bluegrass turf over the past " 373 games, " Notre Dame Stadium has unquestionably developed a lore all its own. " Fii-dshirig its 74th year " of service to Irish football, the stadium continues to be one of the most recognizable and revered structures in the world of sport.

A statue of the Blessed Virgin presides over their precincts. " Under their respective bases are the fomidations of earlier churches and colleges. A short distance to the west stand their progenitors -- a simple log chapel and a small Old College. Since their completion over a century ago, each has welcomed thousands of students, faculty, staff and visitors. As the warp and weft of the University ' s purpose. Sacred Heart Church and the Main Building encapsulate much of Notre Dame ' s past.

The Notre Danie experience can be summed up in four words: the Notre Dame fainily. We are all a part of the Notre Dame family, and this phenomenon touches us all in every aspect of our experience here on this beautiful campus. It can be witnessed in a unified student body f oHTiing a sea of green as they sway to the alma mater after each and every home football game; one can see the Notre Dame family in the community of domi masses; the Notre Dame family can be seen once more in an intimate gathering of undergraduates at the dining halls, sharing the details oi their days across a family-style table during the darkening Indiana night. Tlie beauty o{ this campus - the House that Rockne built, the majesty of Touchdown J esus, the solemnity of the grotto, the peacefulness of the lakes - is only surpassed by the beauty o{ the students that choose to make this campus their home for their years of collegiate study. To appreciate Notre Dame in all its fullness is to recognize the importance of the Notre Dame family and the students that make up that family. The Notre Dame family is why WE ARE ND. -Caitlin Oberst ( OpeiT ing ' -»? opening P ioto b Veronica Rivero A 013 2003 Pkiilo H miii SclinckicT 014 «(i » Opening Hopes and Dreams Tliis is Notre Dmne, as it was, as it is, aiid as it shall be. Tlie University continues to grow and change as it has since its estahlisbnent in 1842. Each day, the Irish add another atliletic victory to the record books, make another scientific breaktluough, or brighten a child ' s day through volunteering. From academics to atliletics, research to recreation, this University pushes its students to achieve success in all of their endeavors. It is the Notre Dame conmiumty as a whole that makes a difference in the lives of every student, faculty, and staff member. We rely on the people that live and work in the buildings around campus. Without them, the unique experience of our university would be lost. Tlie buildings and the people in them may change over time, but the feeling remains the same - full of hopes and dreams. Within the walls of the buildings on our campus, hopes are wished and dreams are fulfilled. We achieve our own destinies, and affect those of the people around us. Without each other, our hopes and dreams would be forever lost in the nooks and crannies of our favorite buildings.

" Having planned sevent -two hours of forced miiigling that would begin the Friday before classes started, the Frosh-O staff sported domi t-sliirts and had all the eagerness tind enthusiasm of pre-teen summer campers. Upon opening the trtuik of a car, a herd of sweaty staffers would crowd around it md proceed to unload e -erv- last item, including that overly stuffed duffel bag or suitcase that one might imagine could only contain bowling balls or a home-town-honey. Not all domvs ha -e the con ' enicnce of air-conditioning and some do not even have elevators, makiiig tHs a difficult task in the heat and humidity of South Bend ' s late summer days. Without alkwing much time for the freshmen to settle in, the Frosh-O staff members kicked off the weekend by teaching songs like " Escape " aitd " You ' ve Lost that Loving Feeliiig " that would be used to serenade domis of the opposite sex before each event. Wliile some activities like karaoke were coiisidered relatively tame, others were a bit more outragauis, such as being tied at the wnst to a complete stranger and beii-ig told to na gate a crowded diniiig hall. With new people to meet at every activity, freshmen found themselves reverting to the classic tliree questions: " Wliat ' s your name. ' " " What ' s your major. ' " and " Wliere are you from.

Tlie night ' s entertainment included a DJ with a dance floor as well as obstacle courses, sumo wTesding, and blackjack.

With tuition increasing every year, students often find it necessary to find a way to make some extra money during the school year in order to htith help pay for tuirion, and also to cover any of those unexpected costs that may ha ' e come up. For a growiiig number of students, these emplo TOent opportuniries are found right here on Notre Dame ' s campus. While working off campus is an option for many students, it is often overlooked because it is simply easier and more convenient to have a job on campus. Students do not ha ' e to worn,- about dri Tng to work or taking the bus and the ' can often find much more flexible hours because on-campus errployers understand the other academic demands that are placed on students. With nearly every office, department, and business on campus having jobs for student workers, there are more than enough work tipportuniries to go around. If a student has enough free rime he or she can often find multiple jobs on campus to help make a little more money. No matter what a student ' s availability and interests, there is at least one job at Notre Dame that they can do. With everything from a computer cluster consultaiit for the technology savvy student to clerical work in various offices for the organized coed, there is definitely something for everyone. Juiiior Sarah DeLeeuw said, " 1 was able to put the classes 1 have taken for my major lo use in Kth of my jobs. As a T.A. aiid also as a tutor, 1 have been able to use my iriterest in math to help out other students. " Another wonderful part of working on campus is that students have the chance to get involved in areas that truly interest them. Rather than taking just a typical afternoon job in order to pay the bills, many students are also able to gain some pracrical experience that will help them iii their future careers. " Working in the Sports Infonnation office is great because I get the opportunity- to be involved with something that I am really interested in and make some extra money at the same time, " said junior Tori Blainey. Working on campus is not only a great way for students to make some extra cash, it also allows them to learn valuable skills for the future while contributing to the success of their universiry. -nfcolA phfllipc :.«Fctt-tune staft menilxT . lelanie Larrabee gives smdents their pnis at the rnual LiR TOinc Opoi House The Open House helped nevv students to beamie familiar i ith the many businesses and offices in the building.

" How does one even begin to fit liis or her life into tliis tiny space that usually comes equipped with one other person to share it with? It oiily takes a little tender loving care aiid some creativity to make the sparse cells of university donn rooms into personal havens. Some things are essential. A college student needs an alami clock, fans, a television, and of course, a refrigerator. Beds are lofted or bunked and plastic storage containers of every shape, size, and color adorn nearly every domi rcxim on campus. But it is not just a creative use of small space that makes a donn room special. It is the posters that range from the Beades to ballerinas to a student ' s favorite drink of choice. It is glittering lights and futoiis and butterfly chairs. Pictures and snapshots and other little bits of memories cover the walls like personalized wallpaper. To add spice, some of the domi rooms have traditional nicknames, or names that they are christeried with at the beginning of a semester. For example, the Sorin " Otter " and " Quint " rooms are v idely blown around campus and a group of sophomore guys also dubbed a cluster of rooms on the third floor of Sorin as " The Rocky Moving into the domis as a fresliman is a datuiting task. People never realize how much they own until they begin to pack it all up and move away to college. It seems impossible that everytliing will fit, but eventually everything falls into place. Literally. Clothes begin to fall on the floor, papers litter the desks, and trashcans overflow. Without even realizing it, the litde room really does become a home. Dorm rooms are more than just a place to live; they are a reflection a student ' s personality. Beyond the knick-knacks, posters and furniture that add to the atmosphere of a dorm room, it is the memories that are made inside those four walls that are the most important. The laughter with friends, the tears when times are hard, and the late night conversations with roommates make the room one ' s own. Those kinds of decorations cannot be taped to the walls, but they are surely a necessary part of every room at Notre Dame.

Plwo N Nicole Philips impus Life 023 Diversity in ciQrs ining " I ' m himgry! " might just be die tm most frequent words out of aiiy college student ' s mouth, and Notre Dame students are no exception. Answering the inevitable question that follows, " Where should we go this time?, " is the hard part. Notre Dame offers a variety of places to eat on campus, and that list expancis with every passing year. Tlie most frequented spots for on-campus ftxxl are undeniably North and South Dining Halls, but the question of wliich is better. North or South, will forever remain mi uiuesolved issue. " There ' s a lot of cool things at North that South doesn ' t offer, like the new ' make your own pizzas, ' and who could live without the pasta stir-fry! " exclaimed Sciphomore Nicole Pretet. On the other hand, as Sophomore Justin O ' Neill stated, " North Dining Hall ' s tcxj confusing because you never know what is in another room. You could be missing out on something good because you ' re too lazy to go see what ' s in the next room over. " Wlien students inevitably get sick of the same routine, they turn to the many options awaiting them in the LaFortune Student Center. The only down side: the Flex Points are gone before you know it! It is not uncommon to run over to Starbucks for a caffeine jolt before a late night of studying, or head to the HuddleMart for snacks or " midnight Quarter Dogs " on weekdays following parietals. Everyone is accustomed to the long line awaiting them at Subway around lunchtime, and a quick trip to Sbarro always satisfies those Italian cravings. Burger King is also there as the classic staple of American " fast-food. " Reckers, located bel ' und South Dining Hall, is always a popular stopping point for students coming back from a late night out or to gather after parietals take effect around campus. The tasty pizzas, cheese fries, burgers and smoothies easily liit the spot. The food opportunities do not end there. There are less known eateries wliich attract the more " intellectual, scholarly types, " and can offer an escape from the crowds of central campus. These include the Cafe de Grasta in Grace Hall, Cafe Poche in Bond Hall, and Greenfields International Cafe in the Heshurgh Center for International Studies. Not only that, but Waddick ' s in O ' Shauglinessy Hall provides soups, salads, and coffees, and Decio Commons in Decio Facult ' Building and Gimmon Stock in the basement of the Mendoza College of Business provide snacks and coffees for a quick break between classes. Tlie opening of Legends at the end of August 2003 gives the students of Notre Dame one more place to satisfy their hunger with sit-down meals also available to the general public. When all on-campus choices leave a student ' s taste-buds craving more, Papa John ' s pizza and breadsticks or Giilden Dragon Chinese food are only a phone call away.

" While a quick glimpse inside the Notre Dame football stadium on game day will give the impression that students are all green-sliirted clones, students break away from tliis mold during the week. Each student has his or her own style and standards for dressing for class. For many students who attended private schexils before comiiig to Notre Dame, the absence of a schixil uiiifomi is a new experience. For Freshman Kaitlin Mtiran, wearing a unifomi " was so much easier but. . . I like being able to get up and put on whatever 1 want. " lii college, students possess the freedom to select clothes that fit their personalities and schedules. Some students put a lot of time and effort into their appearances for class. Dress shirts for guys and skirts for girls present the image of composed and serious students eager to embrace the academic world — or at the very least, students ready to give an in-class presentation or attend a job interview. Basic questions many students take into consideration when dressing for class include: Do I match? Wlien was the last time I wore tliis outfit? When will 1 work out? The majority of students embrace a casual style that relies heavily upon an American favorite — denim jeans. Students pair jeans with anytliiiig from dressier sliirts to t-shirts. Favorite t-shirt themes include Notre Dame aiid domi t-sliirts, as well as hometown sports team and favorite bands. Some students take an even more simplisric approach to getting dressed. " Socks. Deodorant. Underwear. That ' s it, " explained Junior Joe Pomerenke. The number of rimes students hit the snooze button, as well as how man ' hours they slept, often contribute to the decision to dress down for class. The t-shirts and sweat pants of exam weeks reflect a shift in prioriries. Students worry about finishing papers and studying for tests rather than the seeiningly trivial matter of physical appearance. Despite the many different approaches students have for dressing for class, there appears to be one universal corrsiderarion — the desire to " dress to impress " ...the opposite sex, that is. Many female students admit to dressing for whom they will see that particular day. Guys apparendy feel the same way as one junior male revealed his morivation, " 1 tliink about that girl in my English class. " Junior Adam Rieck dresses for class siniply by asking himself, " ' NX ' liat do the girls want to see?

" No, tliis is not a Bon Jovi concert, but the words from their hit song " Living on a Prayer " can he heard Hasting from the rooms of one of the fourteen male dorms across campus. If you follow the sounds of the music, you will likely find a domi nxim cleared of all its furniture and crowded with about fifty more freshmen than it is supposed to hold. Tlie RAs sometimes have to act as boiuicers, asking incoming party-goers to please wait in line until the room becomes less crowded. Tlie reason for this abundance of people is that most freshmen do not necessarily know the students who are throwing the party. They either find out about it through word of mouth or by following the music that they hear while passing by. They also rely on word of mouth when going to the occasional off -campus party, at the apartments or houses of upperclassmen. Many seniors chocise to live off campus in ptpular locations such as Turtle Creek, Lafayette, College Park, and Gistle Point apirrtment complexes, or houses on different streets including Wasliington, Colfax, and St. Peter streets. Seniors who remain on campus will head to their friends ' houses on Friday and Saturday nights. A lot of the parties are small gatherings among friends, and many have themes such as " Beach Night, " " Toga Party, " and " Eighties Night. " Seniors also prefer going to bars in South Bend such as The Library, Heardand, Corby ' s, Tlie Linebacker, Boat Club, mid Qub 23. " When I was a freshman, I used to go to domi parries that I heard about even if I didn ' t know the petple tlirowing it. Now that I ' m a senior living on campus, I go off campus to my friends ' houses where I biow the people, and it ' s not just some random house.

" Tliis can be evidenced after the first big snow storm of the winter, when all of the greater South Bend area is without power, and effectively without class or work, but Notre Dame, within its own underground lines and power generation system is still well lit and heated, which means that classes continue. Despite this comforting atmosphere on campus, each year a number of students venture out on their own for their first glimpses of the real world. When freshmen arrive on campus, the excitement of donn life is the first thing that greets them. Tlie people in their section become their closest friends as they spend the greater portion of each day with them. Towards the end of sophomore or junior year, most students begin contemplating whether or not to move off campus. The whole debate can usually divide a group of friends. There are definitely those who are adamant about living on campus all four years. Not only are there single sex domis with parietals but there are also a large number of students who never move off campus, wliich is part of what makes Notre Dame so unique. " 1 only get four years at this canpus and I can live off campus for the rest ot my life, " Junior Beth Duran said. " 1 vvaiit to be an RA and help the freshmen as much as I can. " A lot of universities do not have the space to allow students to live on campus after freshman year, but Notre Dame is accommodating and welcomes students all four years. However, there are several students who count down the days to what they see as freedom. Notre Dame dorm life can sometimes seem shelteriiig. A lot of students want to finally get out into the " real world, " or at least move another step closer to it. Off campus living means no more parietals, security guards, RAs, or community bathrooms. " Living off campus is a liberating experience, " said Senior Danielle Davis. " You still get to be a part of the Notre Dame family, and you aren ' t babysat anymore. " In addition, once students leave the dorms, they return to living spaces the sizes they were used to from home, before being squeezed into triples and quads once they arrived here. They can cook their own meals and do not have to walk to LaFortune to do their laundry. Students who move off campus have the opportunity to grow up a little faster than those who remain on, as they get their first glimpse of the freedom iind responsibilities that exist outside the bubble known as Notre Dame. -claire fade l imi, BtJto cnuru Brlta.

Only five hundred nuire niiles to go before all their dreams are realized, and their l s are stretched. The car is scented with a mixture of the smell of foregone showers and old greasy wrappers creating a road map of their own from the past sixteen hours. Four friends piled into one compact car on a journey. Their destination: fun and excitement. It ' s road trip time. Suddenly, like a dog at the sound of the wliistle, all the inhabitants of the car perk up and their eyes grow huge. The Statue of Liberty resembles an ;int in the distance, but it ' s there. Finally, after twenty non-stop hours in a car diey ' ve reached it. Tlie four friends once again resume their lost laughter as the sound of music permeates die car and they all begin to belt out songs in harmony (if it can be called that). They reach the city and just before leaving the car they look each other in the eyes, hands united in the center and recite, " What happens on the trip, stays on the trip. " This is just one example of what happens when a group of coU e co-eds hops in a car and takes off on a road trip. Whether die destination was a sporting event, a shopping spree, or simply a well- deserved bit of relaxation, students found time to pack their bags and hit the road. Hoping to broaden her horizon on a trip to Boston over Fall Break to watch the football team take on Boston Collie, Juliette Hobbs happily recalled memories of singing songs for hours and a new found lo -e for beef jerk -.

When v e got to Boston you wouldn ' t helie e how many Notre Dame people were there. It was like there was one on every- comer. Almost like being at home in die sea of green.

Plioto iiv Eric Oirtstiansen , Ask anyofl W Rfids Notte Dame and they will tell ytui that Diie o( its mc t unique aspects is the dorm life. With no Greek system on campus and only single sex residence halls, there are obvious differences between ND and many of its collegiate counterparts. But students will be quick to tell you that the absence of sororities and fraternities is more than compensated for by the dorm experience. With their own colors, mascots, and sports teams, each dorm takes on a personality of its owi . One of the most important parts of this dorm culture is each dorm ' s signature event. With twenty-seven dorms on campus having a signature event, there are a variety of activities going on throughout the year. While some of these events may be more publicized and widely attended, like the Fisher Regatta each spring or the Keough Chariot Race each fall, each and every dorm plans its own signature event that is cherished by the hall. Some of these events come in the form of dances. For example, each year Lewis Hall holds the Lewis Crush, in which the girls of the hall invite their crushes to attend the dance and even print an ad in the Observer listing the lucky men invited to the event. Other dances, such as Alumni and Dillon Halls ' Big Red Dawg Dance or Howard ' s Hoedown are also events that students look forward to year after year. Whil e each dorm does have one or more dances during the year, not all choose to label one of these nights as the dorm ' s signature event. Instead, they sponsor campus wide events for all students to enjoy. One such event, the Mara Fox Fun Run, is sponsored by Lyons Hall each fall. The race raises money to be given as a scholarship to one deserving student each year. The Keenan Revue, produced by the Keenan Knights, provides humor to the entire campus every spring through a stage show starring the hall ' s residents. With each of the dorms sponsoring an event unique from all the others, there is rarely a weekend on campus when there is not something going on. These events provide plenty for students to do and are some of the many important traditions students took part in during their time at Notre Dame. -nfcolA phfllips S Ien. i)t Knott Hall hat t he dorm ' s signature event " Knott on the Knoll " that . iitures a axikout and concert.

Clearly the best plan of action is to first take a nap, grab some dinner from Subway, drive his friends to Meijer, watch a movie upon returning to campus, and finally get to work at about ten o ' clock. Of course, witli the amount of work due it is best to go to the library with a big group of friends who wiO sit at his table and distract him. At two o ' clock in the morning, every procrastinator ' s worst nightmare becomes a reality as the obnoxiously loud sirens of the library relenriessly sound. Mike is forced to relocate to the basement of LaFortune, one of the few twenty-four hour study spots on campus. He will then get some pizza, candy, and soda to keep him awake mitil his eight o ' ckxk test. Procrastination is an art form that some students at Notre Dame avoid completely, most practice occasionally, and others live by. Because of the strenuous academic schedule found at this university, many students will experience one of " those weeks " that liiiger in the nightmares of college students everywhere. Regardless of whether they have kept up with readings, the need for the dreaded all- nighter sometimes arises. Some students prefer working under pressure because they claim they are able to get their work done without wasting rime when they know they have a deadline. As Alex LaForge, a sophomore in Lyons Hall, explained, " I always wait unril the night before to write my paper because I just can ' t motivate myself to do it a week early. Plus, you ' re not going to remember the grades you got on each paper you wrote in college, but you ' ll always remember those crazy nights just hanging out with your friends. " Waiting until the night before to study for an exam or write a paper means forcing yourself to stay awake even though your bed is calling. Listening to music, consuming large quantities of caffeine, snacking at LaFortune or Reckers, and having friends to take breaks with all contribute to keeping one ' s concentration strong through those early morning hours when the rest of the world is sleeping. The satisfaction of getting an " A " on that test you crairuned eight straight hours for or getting an " A " on the paper you wrote in five hours flat may be worth the stress that accompanies putting it off until tlie last minute. -Jane I ft nal:asha mikha 036 ProcrELstinating TixiB ijroup of students aiLxiously awaits the Acousticafo show ' s beginning.

As Notre Dame studaits, o h;ne the privil e of living just steps away from several extremely popular Catholic destinations for prayer and worsl " up. tuich year, visitors flood the Basilica and light coundess candles at the Grotto of Our Lady; a visit to campus would not he complete othemise. Once an individual joins the student body, however, new places emerge as the spiritual landnuuks of c;impus. The phrase " worship at Notre Dame " conjures images of domi chapels for a vast majority of students. Weekly Masses in each residaice hall provide the most frequent opportunity for younger students to come together with upperclassmen and foster a sense of community within the domi. At these Masses, residents aren ' t just praying - they ' re praying for and worshipping with each other. Though Notre Dame boasts plent ' of chapels, prayer and worship at the University know no bouiidaries. Many students can recount a moving spiritual experience that took place outdoors or in a classroom, such as the Mass following September 1 1th, 2001 , or divine intervention during a test. Thanks in large part to Campus Ministry, students are increasingly able to delve into their spiritualit - in less obvious places. Programs like Theology on Tap and the Sophomore Road Trip allow participants to consider their faith in unconventional atmospheres - on the beach or even in a bar. Yet another dimension is added to worship at Notre Dame by students of different religious backgrounds. Although roughly 84% of the student bod ' is Catholic, the University also has a sizable number of students from other faiths. The Interfaith program provides a place for non-Catholic and Catholic students to share prayer, music and fellowship without attention to denominational labels, and many popular retreats, including NDE, welcome participants of other faiths. Canipus Ministry also strives to meet the needs of a multicultural student body by celebrating a weekly Spanish mass and a monthly Afrocaitric mass, as well as offering retreats designed specially for students with Asian, African-American or Latino backgrounds. No two students experience spiritual life at Notre Dame in the same way. Whether we choose to pray among friends, attending Mass in our domis ' chapels, or privately, contemplating our religious beliefs on a campus bench, Notre Dame has a pieculiar way of helping us grow spiritually. And no matter how we choose to pray, in the end, we ' ll always have the Grotto. iartiiE :an prays in Fariey Hall ' s chapel before goiiig to bed Dorm chapds provided ujdiB Midi a place for private pra er and reflection.

Pliotot CZlannpus Life 3 b) CLA; Fluid mKmD39 Just Between Storms iQ7a At a university- that fcxiise mi much on family and tradition, it is no surprise that even the residence halls choose to embrace these important values. While each dorm does its best to foster relationships amongst its residents, they also branch out to students from other dorms through brother-sister pairings. Each year, the dorm presidents nominate their top three choices of which dorm they would like to have as a " sibling, " and then the Hall Presidents Council matches them up accordingly. While some pairings stay constant throughout the years, for example Keough and Welsh Family Halls, other groupings may change from year to year. Regardless of which dorms end up together, student leaders within the dorms do their best to plan a number of enjoyable events throughout the year that encourage residents to branch out and meet people from their brother or sister dorm. Joint dances are often a popular choice. " By having a joint dance it allows you to save money, but it is also a great chance to meet people from your brother dorm who are at the dance too, " said Lyons Hall dance commissioner Lisa To. While dances are one option, there are a number of other activities that the brother-sister pairings plan for their residents. For example, each year Zahm and Cavanaugh Halls plan the Winter Carnival. During warmer months, dorms also opt for outdoor activities such as barbeques on the qu ad. In support of these sibling unions, a special week was designated during the fall semester entitled " Family Ties " week. Throughout the week, dorms planned numerous activities and even took a family picture of the dorms ' residents. Each of the events was judged on the basis of things like creativity and attendance, and the winners were awarded cash prizes. With so many enjoyable events planned for each set of " siblings, " it is easy to see why so many friendships were formed. The brother-sister pairings were a great way for students living on campus to get out of their dorms and meet new people while having a lot of fun in the process. -nfcole phillfps I tiictK Mshhunic ax)ks hamburgers for those attendint , Lyoiis Morrisscy cixikout.

This fact may have seemed astonishing and even a hit unbelievable when you heard it on your first visit to campus or read it in a piece of mail. But after visiting the school and meeting the students, it is eas ' to see why students are so willing to give some of their time to help others. Qie of the main reasons that ai many students participate in some fomi of service related activities is that there are so many options to chtxise from. For most students, service was a part of their high schexil years, and m;iny are eager to continue that tratlition upon entering college. With so many different organizations hosting events botli on iind off -campus, this desire to continue service work was easy for most students to satisfy. There are a number of different groups around campus that are based on these service-related activities. For example, Circle K allows students to attend weekly meetings and participate in events, such as Bingo with the elderly. " Getting involved with Circle K is a great way to stay active in serving your conmiiu-iity. It also allowed me to meet new people, and the meetings and events are a nice break from the monotony of classes and homework, " said Junior Megan McCormick. Another group, Habitat for Humanity-, has a kxal chapter here on campus where students are able to actually pick up tools and put in their own hard work and sweat in order to build homes for those who need them. Even if students do not want to miike a commimient to one particular group or organization, each dorm offers miiny one-time service opptirtmiities for its residents. Whether it is working at the food pantry, collecting coats for Project Warmth, or hosting the children from Li Gisa de Amistad for a Christmas party, dcimi service provides the comfort of working alongside familiar faces and friends while also allowing students to give some of their time to serve the South Bend commiu-iiry ' . No matter whether they were veteran volunteers or rookies in the world of service work, students did not have to look far to find a luiique and satisfying way to give some of their time and talmts to help others in need. -nicole phfllipc Gene-vieve McCann l ' Li uith a voiinyster at the R ,1 X ' . as part of tiieir volunteer program.

P wlo h Sara Sdaundcr CampLis Life A 043 Home IQ84 ome Everyone knows that Domers come from Kith near and far. Many started out as freshmen living with someone from across the country or around the globe. Aside from the occasional " townie, " students represent all of the fifty states. Students from a large international community may find South Bend an adjustment from their hometowns. Whether it is a small town or a booming metropolis, hometowns shape the character of each individual student. As a result, every person brings something unique to Notre Dame. It is common to find students expressing iiitense pride in their hometowns. They argue over which city is the " real " Naptown — Annapolis or Indianapolis — and about whether the East or West coast is better. Chicago natives show pride even from the outlying suburbs. Texans on campus claim, " American by birth; Texan by the grace of God. " Scime Domers have the same hometowiis and are able to see each other even when school lets out for breaks. Rita Morgmi, from Edina, MN, said that one of her good friends, Jenny Geris, lives only ten minutes away from her hometown, and they are able to visit over summer breaks. " It ' s a litde strange hanging out with all of her friends [from home] when we get together, instead of our mutual friends at Notre Dame, " Rita said, but she definitely enjoys the trips. Despite the extra effort needed to visit fellow Domers at home, it allows students to see their friends outside of die college setting. Studaits returning home for breaks find themselves catching up with friends and family and on lost sleep. Recovering from burnouts, they gain a new appreciation for their hometowns. Laura Feeney, a sophomore from Indianapolis, said, " I look forward to seeing my family and friends. I definitely miss doing my laiuulry for free too. " While at home, jobs can take up the majority of their time. Many depend on summer jobs to pay for tuition, bcKiks, and expenses. Not all students are able to return home for every break. Listead, there is the opptmunity to visit the hometown of a friend who lives closer to South Bend. Lizzie Shappell, who lives in South Bend, wanted everyone to know that " Tlianksgiving is at my place! " when she arrived on campus. The graduating class faces the decision of whether or not to return to their hometowns. Most will go wherever the jobs are available, even if they would prefer to live closer to home. After creating a home for themselves at Notre Dame for four years, graduating students now have a new task in making another city or town a place to call their home. 044 A HometowTLs J xnia r Megan McQimiick tunii on some music while wc; ring a t-shirt made by the Pittsburgh alumni association.

Qie can find students traveling to class in a variety of ways. The most common and popular mode of transportation for students is their own two feet. E er ' where on campus, studeiits can be seen trekldng to their next class. The many walkways and sidewalks become highways for students to travel on. With many students preferring walking to other ways of getting around, thsy are able to catch up with each other between classes, leisurely stroll with friends around campus, and get some good exercise at the same time. While walking may be the most frequent mode of travel, it is not the only option. Many choose to ride bicycles to and from classes and activities. Speed is definitely a factor in this decision, but it can he hard to m;ineu er in those high traffic areas around class time! Most bikes are chained to the racks that are pro ided outside donns and buildings, even though theft is not a large problem around campus. Some only use their bikes when they are running beliind schedule or need to get to the opptisite side of campus. Some less frequendy used transportaticn options are roUerblades, skateboards, and scooters. These are certainly found among students cffi campus, but are not as popular as walking or biking. Rollerblading can speed up the travel time without having to maneuver a bike around people; this is the same advantage of a skateboard. Scooters are another fun and youthful way to get to class, but these choices become a lot more difficult once the campus is covered with snow and ice.

Recreation Sports fitness classes have become one of the most popuk r means of exercise on the Notre Dame campus. Class options range from yoga to boot camp and tv icaliy last for the duration of the semester. RecSports has even instituted a training class for aspiring fitiiess class instructors. Katherine Graziano, a sophomore enrolled in the class, provides insight into the program ' s objectives: " Fitness instructor training provides an opportunity. . . to master the techniques necessary to run an exercise class to meet diverse fitness needs. " Through programs such as tliis one, the University is not only accoinmodating current fitness development, but also fostering future activity. According to the Princeton Review, Notre Dame ranks as the number two " jtxk school " in the country. This statistic reflects the widespread athleticism of the student bcxly , which is manifested in a number of ways. In addition to the many fitness classes offered through RecSports, a flurry of physical activity is ever-present around campus. Joggers circle the lakes and rollerbladers seize iiice weather as an opportunity for an alternative fomi of exercise. However, the most frequently implemented means of independent physical activity entails utilization of the University ' s indoor fitness facilities. Anyone who has ever walked into the exercise rexims at Rolfs or the Rockne Memorial with the intention of working out knows just how popular these facilities are. The very fact that use of the equipment requires sigi ung-up in advance speaks to its popularity. Equipment choices typically include the elliptical, treadmill, stationary bicycle, and stepper. Unfortunately, a common grievance among students is that the University ' s fitness facilities do not have sufficient equipment to accommodate such an athletic student body. Playing pick-up basketball is another way for students to stay active no matter what the weather. Courts are almost always bustling with a " shirts vs. skins " game. Ryan Conner, a frequent visitor of Rolfs, commented on the popularity of this pastime, " Friday afternoons, the place is packed. It ' s not at all uncommon to wait two or three gaines to get in. Once you get on the court, you had better win or you ' ll find yourself waiting another two or three games before you get back on the court. " Despite what can sometimes be an irritating delay, Conner also appreciates the fact that Notre Dame boasts one of the most athletic student Ixxiies in the country. " It ' s great tti have enough quality athletes here to get pick-up games going on a regular basis. " Obviously the above mentioned activities do not fomi an exhaustive list of all of the exercise taking place on campus; they are instead only a snapshot of the ntany opportunities presented to ND students. Thanks to the widespread interest in staying in shape at Notre Dame, new ideas for fitness are always on the horizon. -laura flanagan CturiB Milliron completes his weight httini; regiment at the Rock.

Is it a favorite band or a nationally renowned speaker entering the Joyce Center. ' No, it is the Notre Dame ftxjthall team arriving at their pep rally. The team was the obvious focus of the pep rallies, as fans came to show their support for the upcoming home game. But there were many other people who were involved in providing entertainment and helping to the get the fans excited. Groups such as the Pom Squad, the marching biind, and the cheerleaders worked together to get the students revved up for the team ' s arrival into the arena. Tliere were also a number of great speakers who helped to make tlris season ' s pep rallies memorable. Wliether it was Carson Daly professing liis liidden, long-time love for a campus to which he had never previously visited, or a member of the 1953 football team giving constructive criticism to current pilayers, guest speakers always helped elevate the mcxxi of the crowd. Other notable speakers this season were Notre Dame alums Joe Theismann and Ruth Riley. Fomier athletes at the University, these two speakers encouraged the crowd to stick by the fexatball team, regardless of their record. Since each dorm got tiie cliLince to co-host one of the six pep rallies, students also found ways to get involved in boosting team spirit. While showiiig dorm pride tluough T-shirts, hats and other domr apparel, and sometimes even some crazy costumes, students were able to bond together to support the fcxithall team. Tliroughout the season, the students proved what Alumni Asscxiation Executive Director Chuck Lennon has often said; that the students are " the best twelfth man in the country ' . " Tlie students were not the only ones losing their voices at the pep rallies. Their excitement and energy spread to the many alumni and visitors tliroughout the JACC as everyone united for the conunon goal of cheering on the fcxitball team. At many points during the hour-and-a-half long pep rallies, the entire building was on its feet cheering on the Irish.

From Frosh-O and SYRs to interhall sports and signature e cnts, the donn pnde of tl iis uni ' ersit ' is second to none. Yet the one part of dorm life that is the cornerstone for each hall is the domi mass. E en. Sunday e ening, despite differences in faith or the amoiuit of studying still left to he done, each domi community gathers as a group in its respective chapel to listen to the Word of Gcxl and to wimess the Ekxly and Blood of Christ. Being a Catholic is not a requirement for attending dorm mass; students of all faiths come to celebrate mass with their classmates. Mass gives students time to reflect on the week behind them and prepare for the week ahead. More importantly, it fosters a sense of coiTumuiit ' that cannot he found aiwvhere else on campus. While students are welcome to attend mass in any of the halls, most choose to stay witliin their own domis and worship with tlie people that they also live with. Music is an integral part of masses in the dorm. Each dorm has its own unique and energetic group of musicians who come together to use their musical talents to lead their brothers and sisters in worship through song. For exanple, . ' Mumni Hall has a music ensemble consisting of a piano, two guitars, a mandolin, and a iolin in addition to a choir consisting of about twenty male and fe male members. Fr. George Rozum, C.S.C, rector of Alumni Hall, has dubbed this special group " Tlic Most Dangerous Mass Musicians and Choir; " the name is certainly fitting. While some domis may not have such a large ensemble to provide music for mass, there are at least a few residents in each hall who are musically inclined enough to lead their fellow residents in praise. In addition to Sunday masses, many halls offer one or more weekday masses for students. Lewis Hall has a weekly Wednesday night mass, and many of its residents attend to get a much-needed break from their studies. Perhaps the most popular weekday mass is the " Milkshake Mass " held in Dillon Hall ' s chapel on Thursday nights. After niass, the dorm ' s rector, Fr. Paul Doyle, CS.C, puts his blender to the test and makes milkshakes for all in attendance. By allowiiig students to take a break from their hectic schedules to come and celebrate mass and enjoy their fellow domi residents, tliese donn masses help students to continue to grow in their faith while tnily embracing the Catholic heritage upon wiiich this university was founded. — ' kri3n CllCC Tlneee Kautiful stained glass uinckws help add to the charm of Alumni Hall ' s . u.j v...

PIvoto fcrv SamhSchtader Campus Life 53 Getti IQ30S Groove Tlie University o Notre Dame aKiiiiuls with rich tradition spannin, from our love of Irish football to our noteworthy alma mater. Dances are as much a part of our LUiic ue campus tradition as pep rallies, football tailgating, and crowded freshman parties. Today, Notre Dame students help to continue a century ild tradition by dancing the night away at a variety of dorm dances. Tlie dai-ice tradition dates back to the eariy 1900s. During those years, seniors attended formals such as the Farewell Hop and Senior Reception. In 1904 at the Senior Hop, couples waltzed and two- stepped to tunes such as " Sweetheart " and " Tlxuights of Love. " Tl-ie dances during commencement weekend signified the end of four years of hard work and were a farewell for seniors. Dances continued through the mid- 1 900s. Helping to keep the dance tradition alive were formals such as the Senior Ball and Freshman Frolic. In the 1960s, the freshman stxial commission sponsored a hectic weekend entitled " San Francisco by Night. " Tliis tliree day event included a delicious picriic, sightseeing excursion, old-timer football game, free concert, Washington Hall play, and numerous dances. On Saturday evei-iing after the concert, freslimen couples looked stuniiing in gorgeous gowns and rented tuxedos as they attended dances held around campus. In recent years, Notre Dame ' s dance tradition has evolved from elegant balls into the crazy " Set- up Your Rcximmate " in-hall dance. The SYR quickly found popularity among the student body and became a tradition in itself. Roommates worked diligently to find each other a potential date, often resorting to the infamous Dog Book for a hopeful match. Oudandish yet appealing themes such as famous couples, luaus, and the 1970s helped to make SYRs enjoyable events for couples. Certain SYRs even developed into yearly rituals, includiiig Alumni Hall ' s Wake and the Lewis Hall Crush. In 2002 , the SYR tradition chaiiged due to a new policy. Today, SYR dances occur at venues outside of the halls. Recently, students have attended dances at South Dining Hall, the QiUege Football Hall of Fame, or even out on the quads in decorated tents. However, crazy themes, blind dates, and amusing gifts remain vital to the SYR tradition. Year after year, creative SYR themes continue to spring up and become part of Notre Dame ' s dance tradition. During the 2003 fall semester, Stepan Center housed the biggest SYR dance ever, which was sponsored by Mod Quad. Students attended the " Back to High School " dance dressed-up as Catholic school kids, nerds, and prom queens. From waltzes to rap music, fomial wear to thrift store attire, and no matter where, when, or widi whom, a Notre Dame SYR promises to be a good time. -amanda cucko 054 A Dorm IDances ShaTinoxi McGonigle and date Nick Green pose for a picture with her SYR gift before the dance.

Abandoning classroom buildings and dorms, students drift outside to enjoy warm weather and sunshine. The warmer months fill the quads and running trails with students engaging in various activities. If unable to persuade professors to conduct class outside, students make the most of the weather by spending their free time outdoors. The more industrious students head outside with their books in hand, while others take time out of their days to relax or have fun. Students who enjoy relaxing in the wann weather may eat lunch outside, enjoying grab-and-go picnics. Spreading out hlaiikets for sunbathing or taking naps are also popular warm weather pastimes. Some students even pick high-traffic spots on North or South Quad to take in some people watching. Athletic students appreciate the wami weather as an opportunity to abandon the gyms of the Rcxk and Rolfs and sweat outdoors instead. Runners hit the trails around St. Mary ' s and St. Joseph ' s lakes while roller bladers stomi the sidewalks around campus. McGlinn and Stepan Fields fill with students playing football, soccer, and lacrosse. Sand volleyball courts that were neglected or snow-covered during winter montlis attract a handful of students playing in tournaments or just for fun with friends. Students also frequent McGlinn, Lyons, and Stepan basketball courts. And of course there is never a lack of the traditional sight of students tossing frisbees, baseballs, or footballs on the quad. Less traditional activities that are gaining force on campus include an outbreak of bocce ball players and even select groups of croquet players dressed as English gentlemen. Students engage in rousing ganies of capture the flag and tag. Baseball fans living on Mod Quad coordinate home run derbies with a desk chair as home plate, while other comfort-loving students exert the effort to carry couches onto the quad to enjoy the warm weather in style. Jmiior Stephanie Aberger said, " 1 love the kid that sits in. a kiddy pool on North quad and sets up a slip ' n ' slide. I wish that kid was me. " Another student reports witnessing a classniate taking advantage of a warm day by casting a fishing rod on South Quad. Wliile there are always a select few students who do not enjoy the warm weather when it is here, for the most part, Notre Dame students cherish time spent outdoors in wami weather, knowing that when the South Bend wiiiter begins it may be a while before they see the sun again. — kd KIO n jOy CO- ' XIXJB studail wiilcix ' -- Ills p.i» Jiinii) n f aiiic ot ■.dCiXT mi tlic quad with simc friends.

The transition from team captain or most valuable player to a student lost in the crowd can be difficult. These students find comfort in a wide variety- of interhall sports, ranging from tennis and football to racquetball and ice hockey. Besides being able to continue their athletic participation, interhall players enjoy the camaraderie that sports bring to the dorms. Interhall sports are a way for dorm members to bond and get to know each other throughout the year. Widi a couple of practices each week aiid one or two games, the teams spend plenty- of time together and the result is often strong friendships henveen team members. " Notre Dame ' s interhall athletics are a great opportunit ' for any student, " said Jui " uor Mike Schmuhl. " .A ariet - of comperiti ' e sports are offered and they really foster a unique sense of unit ' and teaniwork witiiin the scxial life of each domi. " Dorm teams often become ver - competitive and strive to beat their biggest rivals. For example, the interhall football championship games, held in the football stadium, receive a rather large turnout of fans. This gives a few non ollegiate athletes the opportunity- to know the feeling of pla ' ing in such a well-kiiown facility ' , and is one of the major reasons why the interhall football teams take their seasons ' ers ' seriously. Wliile many students use interhall sports in order to continue the level of competition that they were accustomed to iii liigh schtxil, odier students simply jiiin these teams because they are looking to ha -e a good time and to niake some new friends. An afternoon spent clowning around on die Stepan fields or at Rolfs can be a great stress reliever during midterms and finals. RecSports also offers a number of less physically exhaustive sports for those who prefer more leisurely activities like horseshoes and bowling. X%ate ' er the reason for students to get involved, interhall sports have increasingly become one of the most popular activities on campus.

" These are comments that can often be heard from students who live on campus. Although it seems like campus is self -sufficient, many students find a way to head out into the surrounding cities of South Bend and Mishawaka to run errands and search for a little fun. One of the most popular off-campus destinations for students is Meijer. This superstore seems to have a little bit of everything, so it is a great place to find groceries, cosmetics, CDs, and even decorations for dorm rooms. With so many different items to offer, it is no wonder students frequent the store. " It is nice because a group of us can go there together and everyone can find what they are looking for in one store. Otherwise we would have to waste an entire afternoon going all over town to a bunch of stores to get what everyone needed, " commented Junior April Garcia. Another reason that students ventured off campus was to take a break from the norm of eating in the dining halls every day. Junior Megan McCormick said, " It ' s relaxing to get away from campus and grab a bite to eat with your pals. " Getting a group of friends together and heading out to a favorite restaurant was one common way that students were able to take a break from their busy class schedules while enjoying their favorite meal. Taking in the latest movie was yet another option for students who ventured outside of the Notre Dame " bubble. " Whether it was the latest romantic comedy for a few laughs or a period piece that related to a class topic, students could usually find something that sparked their interest. Even if a group could not decide on a new release, there were plenty of video rental stores around town where they could pick up an old stand-by instead. Other students searched the areas around school for evening entertainment, like bowling or miniature golf. Many dorms and campus organizations sponsored late night trips to these facilities, but most students went on their own whenever campus felt a little boring. Whether it was to pick up some dorm room necessities or simply to get away from a busy day of class, a trip off campus was usually a welcome adventure for everyone involved. -nfcolA phillfpc oeo Of f-CampLis Activities K " v±n Qimcy and Brad Weiland spend some time at UP Mall for some Saturday afternoon entertainme nt.

All four of these locations are nationally and internationally renowned tourist destinations, and they are located right here on Notre Dame ' s campus. The Dome symbolizes the academic character of the University, the Basilica represents the Catholic values that Notre Dame holds, and the Stadium stands for the great traditions of Irish atliletics. Yet there is one place that seems to encompass all of these things and so much more -- the Grotto. The Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes is a down-sized replica of the real shrine in France where the Virgin Mary appeared to St. Bemadette. The real grotto hosts millions of pilgrims a year who come to light a candle and to ask for the ii-itercessions of Mary. Notre Dame ' s own grotto, while small in both size and number of visitors relative to the original, is also a place of pilgrimage and prayer that is near and dear to the hearts of many who have been or are currently a part of Notre Dame. Few people who have visited the grotto could ever say that they have been there alone. At virtually any time of the day or night, there will be someone else at the grotto. Many are there to light a candle as a symbol of their love and prayers for another. Some kneel on the rail in front of the grotto, praying to God through Our Lady. Still others sit on the benches around the grotto, reflecting on the day they have finished or the week ahead. It is always comforting to go to the grotto and know that there is some one there with you who also finds time to pray and reflect. There are certain times of year when the grotto is particularly crowded. Beginning as early as Friday afternoon before a home football game, there is a standing-room only crowd of students, faculty, parents, and alumni who have come to ask for a blessing on the team. Often, those same people return to the grotto after the game, with a prayer of thanksgiving or hope. Finals week is another busy time at the grotto. Whether there to pray for themselves or for friends, or even to ask that their professor might forget to show up the day of the test, thousands of students niake time during the crazy exam week to visit, reflect, and pray. While the Grotto has obvious religious affiliations, this does not dissuade people of all faiths from xisiting it and appreciating its significance. At the Grotto, every member of the Notre Dame family, no matter what their faith, can find a place for reflection and prayer. -brfan dice Bill I lessen kneels m prayer as part of his visit to the Grotto.

The team recruited an enthusiastic group of new sailors at the beginning of the season and started teaching the new members how to sail and how to race. Tliey held practices on St. Joe ' s Lake for the first few weeks and then moved practices off -campus to Diamond Lake in Micliigan. This new site gave them the opportunity to practice in windier conditions. Home football games limited the fall season, but the team traveled to the University of Micliigan, the University ' of Wisconsin, and Indiana University Purdue University- Indianapolis. When the cold weather arrived the team did not stop working on improving their skills. Instead, the team held clinics on racing strategies and higher-level techniques. In the spring, the team planned to travel to regattas at the University of Michigan, Ohio State University, Miami of Ohio University, the University of Wisconsin, and the LWversity of Minnesota. Tlie team also planned to host the Midwest ' s first regatta ot the season, the Freshman Icebreaker on St. Joe ' s Lake. While the other lakes in the Midwest freeze over, our campus power plant keeps the ice off St. Joe ' s Lake. Tliroughout the year the team continued to make contact with sailing alumni throughout the cotuitry. The alumni shared stories, gave advice, ;md supported the team throughout the year. After a successful year on and olf the water the team is kxiking forward to another great season ne.xt year.

Tliis passion is especially infectious w hen [Mtenrial new members are in sight, and the club gladl ' welcomes them, regardless of their ability ' . Although the Cnninastics Club accepts anyone desiring a greater skill in the sptirt, the club has achieved some impressive successes in the past, such as a first place finish last year for the women ' s team. To ensure more strong performances from both indiNiduals and the team, members show a timi dedication to improving their skills b ' practicing several times a week in a N lishawaka f acilits ' . The practices there balance both work and camaraderie among teammates, and as their results from meets attest, camaraderie is the single most binding force of the club. The culmination of all their practice comes in mid-winter, when the team competes c ainst other clubs, which are often much more concerned about the elusive perfect ten. But the Notre Dame St. Mar ' ' s Club is unconcerned with the tension that competition can bring, focusing instead on the ideals their constitution states: " enjoying the company of those sharing the same interest in g -mnastics.

The Glee Club does everything from entertaining alumni, parents, and visitors before home football games to doing their part to resolve the campus wide gender relations problems by serenading female students over the holiday season and on Valentine ' s Day. " When the Glee Club visits us during finals week, it ' s such a fun and relaxing way to take a break from studying " said Junior Melissa Harris. " It ' s one of the things I ' ll always remember about Notre Dame. " The Glee Club has been singing for over eighty-five years and has included more than 2 ,000 young men in its organization. Now recognized as one of the finest all male collegiate choral groups in die comitry, these men spread the rich traditions of Notre Dame throughout the country and arouiid the world. They have traveled to over thirty states as well as throughout P-iirope and Asia. In addition to their four major annual coiicerts at Notre L ime and their abroad trips every two years, the Glee Club makes several smaller pertomiances on campus and throughout the commiuiity. The men take pride in their musical styles that include plainsong, Romantic and contemporary choral works, and Renaissance polyphony, as well as spirituals, folk songs, and several popular Notre Dame songs. Tlie group began with only twelve members in 1915 with the goal of " combining fraternity and festivity with professional musicianship of the highest degree.

When they aren ' t busy on the air, WVFI ' s staff find themselves drawn together by their coinmon musical tendencies, participating in a variety of staff events like listening parties and even bowling. But probably WVFI ' s most important, and surely most promiirent, move tliis year was a series of concerts hosted by the station at the Legends nightclub. Acts like Qark, Owen, and Pedro The Lion turned a once sleepy and sparsely visited Notre Dame concert into a burgeoning touring hotspot, as the radio station was forced to turn down requests from several irational acts due to a lack of available, times. With the success of this year ' s Legaids series and the growth of the listening audience, the WVFI staff, along with its listeners, look anxiously toward the years to come, as the gCKid tunes, great musicians and talented DJs will surely continue to flcxxl our campus and beyond.

The band had a commanding presence way back in 1942. by Kristin Clark marching on One of the most famous traditions in Notre Dame history is the band of the Fighting Irish, which as mentioned at the h inning of each half time show, is " America ' s first university band. " Even at Notre Dame, football games would not be the same without tlie band, which dates back to the very first football game against the Unitversity of Michigan in 1887. The band continued to thrive through the eras of famous coaches such as Rockne, Leahy, Pars hian, and Holtz. Tcxlay, the University Band is a major component of a fall football weekeiid at Notre Dame. From Friday afternoon to Saturday evening, the band has a resounding presence on campus. It entertains a standing-room-only crowd at the pep rally, lifts the spirits of thousands on the steps of Bond Hall as part of the " Concert on the Steps " , and finally guides the crowd of more than 80,000 fans into the stadium. Most notably, however, is the band ' s half time show. With more than 350 members coming from all over America and overseas and representing every academic major on campus, the band practices up to five nights a week to pre- pare for half time. Led by the Irish Guard, the band explodes onto the field to inspire the crowd and " Hike Notre Dame. " Fans are often pleasantly surprised to see the band ' s eclectic dancing ability and hard work pay off. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the band unites the crowd by playing the 1812 Overture in which thousands of fans salute Qiach Tyrone Willingham. Win or lose, die band concludes its busy weekend with the " Notre Dame Victory March " and the Alma Mater, " Notre Dame Our Mother, " emphasizing the camaraderie of the Notre Dame community.

Many of these girls grew up watching skating idols like Nancy Kerrigan and Tara Lipinsky and perhaps dreamed of being the next Michelle Kwan. While these aspirations may not become a reality for most of them, these girls are content participating in the sport they ove. They are also able to display their talents - from spinning to jumping to ice dancing - before large crowds and competitions throughout the country. Wc imen at the University of Notre Dame have not always had the opportunity to display their skating ability. Like many other female organizations on campus, the Notre Dame Figure Skating Club was founded just recently, in 1997, under the Student Activities Office. A year later, it became a club sfMrt under the University ' s rec sports program. Despite its recent fomiation, the Notre Dame Figure Skating Club has achieved much success. After a great deal of hard work and detemiination, diey were invited to the 2002 Midwestern Synchronized Team Championship in which they placed seventh. Currently, nearly fifteen girls compose the Notre Dame Figure Skating Club, which practices regularly at the ice rink at the Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center. Throughout the season, the team has grown both in talent and in fomiing new friendsliips. Club member Gretchen Chriszt said " The team spirit and camaraderie shared by members of this club set it apart from any other organization I have ever been a part of. " Perhaps it ' s this enthusiasm and strong sense of spirit that keeps die club spirming arid skating to success. 1 Iar-lfLetixig- Glxib Teen ' s Rjowring- Kevin Bu.sen, Bridget Welch, Mia Novic, Kim Kciuic-Lly, Lmren Woiis, ;uiJ Diinunika Szreder Officers: Brad Voller (rrosiJeiit) 084 A Figure Skating aiding- their presence kninvn, the NDFSC takes seventh place nt the Midwestern Nationals.

Around this time, most students are swamped with end of semester work and studying for final exams. Tlius, they may pay little attention to the events surrounding this week. Qre group, however, Students for Environmental Action, plays an integral role in planning the activities leading up to Earth Day. On Earth Day of 2004, which falls on April 27th, Students for Environmental Action plan to feature bands, free t-shirts and tie-dye, as well as informarion booths and environmental agencies to speak about protecting the environment. Tliey emphasize how students can get involved to help make the Notre Dame comnuuiity and surrounding areas a healdiier place to live. The Notre Dame Students for Environmental Action is a non-profit student group committed to protecting the environment through educational initiatives, community service projects, and traditional non- violent direct action. Tliis organization ftxuses on and tries to raise awareness of issues such as protecting wildlife, recycling, not poUutiiig, and promoting the involvement of students. They believe that students have a small, yet very important individual role in making our environment cleaner. They also pay particular attention to issues on campus, such as the power plant and its potential emission of hamiful chemicals, in order to hopefully institute healthy changes. Students for Environmental Action meets every other week at six o ' clcxk in the Center for Social Concerns. All members of the Notre Dame , St . Mary ' s , and Holy Cross communities are welcome to attend. Individuals are free to stop hy once to share their ideas, or attend regularly to help work on our various campaigns.

Pluito h iaxah Schiieufer by Meghan Short of green Tliirteen years ago, a group of students began selling t-shirts on campus as a fundraiser to alleviate the medical expenses of an injured ND grad student. By the first home football game the fundraiser was doing very well - over 90 percent of the student btxly wore the sliirt to the 1990 home football opener against Michigan. These students purchased and wore the sliirt with the idea of helping a fellow student wliile showing the unify of the student body and the strength of the Notre Daine spirit. Tliese students didn ' t know that they were starting a Notre Dame tradition; the shirt they purchased soon turned into " The Sliirt. " " Tlie Sliirt " project has maintained its success over the past thirteen years. With help of supporters including the Notre Dame Alumni Asscxiation, " The Sliirt " continues to be purchased by students, alumni, and fans. An average of 45,000 shirts are sold every year, and over the last five years, over $1.5 million has been raised for student programs. The prexeeds have been split between die student government and a wide variety of charities and memorial-based scholarships. A portion of the money is also set aside to aid students who have suffered from catastrophic accidents or illnesses. Tlie 2003 shirt committee was headed by Dave Brenner. Brenner and his committee started plans for " Tlie Sliirt " 2003 just following the 2002 fcxitball season. The committee decided on kelly green for the color of the shirt to re- create the 2002 " sea of green " that garnered nationwide attention. Each year the design for " Tlie Shirt " is carefully selected from entries in a contest open to all Notre Dame students. This year Rozann Carter submitted the winning design which included lyrics from the song " Here Come the Irish " by John Scully and an image of players walking out of the timnel. Carter wanted the shirt to be a mix between " threatening " and " majestic, " representing the " intimidation that is called to mind with the name and tradition of Notre Dame football.

Tliey are everywhere, both on and off campus. Though most would argue that deliberate procrastination is the reason for low gracfe, distractions can he much more difficult to overcome. When students finally get around to stud ' ying, most of them cannot put all of their attention into it. X -ien the weather is wami, students try studying on the quad but most end up simply watching people walking by. Others chat with their friends or fall asleep in the wamith of the sun. Students then try to convince themselves that they can get some serious studying done in LaFortune but instead end up eating and watching the big screen televisions. The study area in the basement gets noisy because of the people stopping by for pizza on their way home from a night out, especially on Wediiesday aiid Thursday nights. " I try to stay in my room to study, but 1 always end up online shopping and talking on IM, " said Junior Erin Evans. " Tlien I move to LaFiui, but it ' s more hm to people-watch than to waste time studying. And the second flexor of the library is usually a who ' s who of business students studying for departmental exams. " Students around campus can spend hours a day studying but, in the end, really spend much less time actually learning. The excuses for putting off studyiiig are overshadowed the night before an exam by all the reasons for not being able to focus. When the exam is later handed back, students complain that there was nowhere quiet to study or that mt«t places, on and off campus, were packed with students. Whatever the reason, students always have and always will struggle to find a productive spot for last- minute craiTuiiing. lOO Studying % Bxijoying- the sun, Erin Marx does a little outdoor studying.

By participating in research or independent study, students are able to come close to a more complete understanding of the material and also can develop closer and more beneficial relationships with professors. Tlie most obvious type of research encountered by students are those associated with the sciences and engiiieering. Every year, chemistry students flock to the bookstore to buy goggles and lab aprons, while engineeriiig classes working on trajectory projects in the middle of South Quad are interrupted by the flow of students headed to and from DeBartolo biall. In special studies, psychology students have the chance to work in the area of research that interests them, whether it is developmental, cognitive, or social psychology. Tliese students work with a professor in a professional laboratory setting, preparing them for their future as a psychologist. Anthropology students often take part in Notre Dame ' s archaeology field school project, traveling to various excavation sites in northern Iiuiiana. Art students, on the other hand, may find themselves spendiiig comitless hours in the studio working on their portfolios and perfecting other creative projects.

Regardless of a faculty member ' s field of expertise or a student ' s major, the lectures provide a source to broaden his or her eelucation and interests. This year Notre Dame hosted a variety of lecture series includiiig " Environmental Justice: Grassroots Voices " (sponsored by the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies), " Notre Dame Erasmus Lectures " (sponsored b ' the Erasmus Institute), and the " Girdinal O ' Hara Lecture Series in Business Ethics " (presented each fall by the Center for Etliics and Religious Values in Business). Departments added lectures specific to their field; the Biological Sciences Department, for example, hosted a variety of lectures including LYNCH lectures and die " Celebrarion of Double Helix Discovery. " Qinversely, these lectures expose the Notre Dame community to liiglily respected and renowned inLli iduL ls, such as Archbishop and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Desmond Tutu. His speech was part of the " Peacebuilding after Peace Accords " conference at Notre Dame. His discussion of South Africa ' s fight to end apartheid drew an overflowing crowd to the McKenna Auditorium on September 1 1 , 2003.

Once a scarcity on Notre Dame ' s campus, women today have made thier presence known at every level of university life. Pfioto by Sarah Schnieder Refore 1972, women were welcome to take classes at Notre Dame only during summer sessions or if they were enrolled at St. Mary ' s College and wished to take courses not offered at the all women ' s college. Many women took advantage of the agreement made between St. Mary ' s and Notre Dame, and rnadvertendy found " a way around the system. " One such woman was Mary Davey, who took all her major classes at the University o( Notre Dame in order to pursue her degree in Business Administration. After petitioning to be granted a Notre Dame diploma for her hard work and dedication to the school, Davey became the first woman to graduate from Notre Dame on May 21 , 1972. Women were allowed to enroll in the imiversity in the fall of that same year. Women at Notte Dame started a new era. Classes started including the female perspective that year (for example. Women in American History offered by Professor Moore), continuing the transition of a university developing and growing in response to a changing society. Wliile only 365 of the 6722 students who enrolled ill 1972 were women, Notte Dame was well on its way to becoming a leader iii co- education. Today women continue to work towards making up fifty percent of the student body and are seen in every aspect of university life. Women work in university administration and various student services. Every decade the number of female professors and departmental heads increases. Female students are active in every college and are helping to break gender stereotypes by starting and belonging to organizations such as the Economics Woman ' s Group. Over the past thirty-one years, Notre Dame ' s female population has proved that there need not be a question of the worthiness of their presence. Tliese women have undoubtedly become an integral and irreplaceable part of one of the nation ' s leading educational institutions. 106 Being- able to attend Notre Dame seems quite natural to Man ' Durbin .ind Kr -stal Hard - as the ' cjusally eat Grab N " Go on North Quad.

When coupled with the work ethic that brought these talented individuals to Notre Dame, it guarantees academic superiority. Student athletes at the University of Notre Dame represent every major. Consistently receiving accolades for academics as well as athlerics, these students continue to defy the stereotype of the ill-educated athlete. The University, which continuously ranks in the top tweiity of the narion ' s tet colleges, educates some of the most talented athletes in the world. While their commitment to their sports often reduces athletes ' study time, giving less time for recreation, they always seem to make the grade. This year their hard work paid off.

It is more thaii goiiig to class and taking exams. It is alviit the collection of experiences we have in our short rime here. But these experiences are not just limited to Notre Dame ' s campus. Many students find themselves studying abroad from destinarions like Rome, Italy or Tok ' o, Japan, arid everywhere in between. These are some of the mc t significant experiences of our college years. Bursting forth from the Notre Dame " bubble " can lead to some of the most luie.xpected and exliilarating times of our lives. When else is it pcissible to spend a semester learning to scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef, skydiving over the Swiss Alps, or crawling through the war tunnels in VieQiam? Spend a year in Rome, Italy and you will undoubtedly come back to Notre Dame knowing the stories and mechaiiics heliind some of human civilizarion ' s oldest and most treasured structures, as well as ha ing had the experience of acting out Shakespeare ' s plays in the Italian ciries in which they were set. Or spend a semester in Fremantle, Australia, aiid come back with new knowledge of how to make spears, throw boomerangs, and harvest oysters from spending a week in the outback. XX ' Tiile many of the calculus equations and names and dates of liistory will leave our memor ' after the tests have been taken, these experiences abroad will never be forgotten. Studying abroad opens the world up, bringing you closer to the distant and the unfamiliar. Its value extends well beyond being an integral part of education, as it becomes an integral part of the lives of those who experience it.

Tliis devotion to service undoubtedly benefits the community but also serves the tutors themselves who frequently feel that they learn more from the experience than their pupils do. From grade school mathematics to four- hundred level engineering classes, tutors ' commitment to learning benefits all students. Tlie Center for Social Concerns, the Ccimpus leader in community service, offers a variety of tutoring opportunities to all age levels at various locations. A popular destination is LaSalle Youth Center on South Bend ' s west side, where luiderprivileged students depend and thrive on assistance provided by the selflessness of Notre Dame students. Qi campus, many students rely on the tutors available through the Writing Center for a quick review or a more in-depth analysis of assigned papers. Tutors both on and off campus are looked up to not just as tutors, but as role models and sometimes even friends. No matter the age, place, or subject, Notre Dame students promote lifelong leaniing. Freshman tutor Eileen Duffy describes tutoring as a " rich experience where I ended up learning more from my kids than I taught them. " Other students develop a love for tutoriiig and community service that inspires them to devote significant amounts of time to service, even after graduation. It is this unselfish serving of others that distinguishes Notre Dame as a true institution of liigher education. 112 A Tiatoring Gen-fcer tor the Homeless tutors Jiismmc Roberts, Jon Conover, Soquel Hiirding, Adam Wikon and Matt Bar- rett are all smiles as they pose for a pic- ture with resident Taquisha.

Desks became inundated with DART hooks, exemption forms, and course descriptions as students worked out their best possible class combinations. PlioKi Itv all Galbgher CARTing is a word that brings both fear and anxiety to every Notre Dame student. Wliy? Because there is always a chance that they will have to take the notorious 8£)0 a.m. Friday lecture or a class with die one teacher everyone says to steer clear of. Simply put, a good or bad DART time can make or break a student ' s semester. Regardless of the traumatic situations that can come out of the fifteen minute window that each student is given to register for the next semester ' s classes, students become excited about the opportunity for fresh, new, and interesting classes. Twice a year students are found grabbing a course schedule book from the stacks spread around campus and reviewing it at any spare moment. No longer does DART entail the hassles of direct access registration by telephone. Instead, the relatively new process to register for classes is, in theory, quite simple. Everyone is given a time at which they are allowed to schedule classes through IrishLink; seniors go first, then juniors, and so on down the ranks until freshmen DART on the last couple of days. During the scheduled time the student logs onto the IrishLiiik system, types in his registration pin number, and away he goes. It only takes a few minutes to register - as long as die classes they want are still open! If not, there is a scramble to find substitutes and to rearrange times. For those whose DART times do not go so well, they can later go back into the system and add or drop classes until they are satisfied. When schedules seem impossible to work out, students turn to their advisors or the registrar for help. DARTing cmi create major headaches for students and advisors alike. Yet, with a new schedule for the next semester, there is always the promise for a new start full of tests, papers, projects, and hopefully a better DART time for the next semester. Attemp-tixig- to make a schaluie tor the tollowing semester often proves painful. Schedules were thrown out and re-written coundess times before students were able to work out a feasible semester.

Pfioto amnesy 0 Joseph Friel The Reserve Officer Training Girps (ROTC) prepares officers for the United States Armed Forces here at Notre Dame. Along the way, cadets, midsliipmen, and at times the rest of the Notre Dame student body have the opportunit ' to engage in a variety of unique educational programs that build upon the character of a successful Notre Dame graduate. Navy midshipmen have the opportunity to go on two " cruises. " During the summers following their sophomore and junior years, members of Navy ROTC are rcL uired to spend about four weeks experiencing the fleet and the operational forces on board a naval vessel. Some people choose wann and tropical places such as the Caribbean while others choose destinations with more favorable liberty ports like the Mediterranean tour. Wliatever the port, however, a midsliipman is guaranteed a memorable adventure. Army cadets are required to endure leadership training during the summer following their junior year. Their Adviinced Leadersliip School allows them to test their skills in simulated combat situations. Leadership reaction courses, mock combat drills, and constant evaluations serve to test aspiriiig Amiy officers under fire and under stress. Other courses offered to ROTC students are also available to the entire student body. One such class taught in conjunction with the Air Force and the Navy ROTC, Intrcxluction to Principles of Flight, covers topics in aerodynamics, weather, communication, navigatioii, a:id airport operations. Tlie course is a student led initiative, dedicated to bringing aviation back to Notre Dame. It is taught by its three founders, current Notre Dame undergraduates, who wrote the curriculum, found donors for the course materials, and give the instruction. All three students are licensed pilots who have a love for flying and decided to share it with the entire Uriiversity. ROTC and the courses that the program offers to its committed me:nbers only serve to intensify and build upon the outstanding resources offered by the rest of the University. These courses are a part of an institution which allows students an opportunity for spiritual, educational and social growth. It is the ethical installation of diese essential life characteristics that set Notre Dame graduates apart from the rest. 116 ROT d classes This ROTC student poses on top ot a suhniarine pulling into Point Loma, CA, that she todc during her cruise.

Plioto K ' ' trah Sc mejjer Trips to St. Mary ' s are hardly uncommon for many Notre Dame students. However, only a small number of these students can be seen each semester taking multiple classes on any day of the week. Wliile Notre Dame may provide students with opportunities in all fields of study, it is at St. Mary ' s College where many students h oping someday to become teachers are found. NX ether a history, English, math or science major, Notre Dame students have been participating in the St. Mary ' s Education program for a number of years. Beginning sophomore year, education majors must balance their schedules with classes from both schools. Over the course of the next two and a half years, students will have taken classes ranging from instructional tecbiology to educational psychology. During the academic year, these students not only make time for their classes and school work, but they also spend anywhere from 30-60 hours each semester working alongside a cooperating teacher at a nearby grade school or high school. By the end of the first semester senior year, many of these education majors have completed all of their classes and are preparing to begin student teaching the following semester. As all of their friends bask in the joy of being second semester seniors, these students are at school teaching close to 150 students, five days a week from 7 a.m. until 3 p. m. everyday. While they may be jealous of their friends ' freedom at times, these education majors can be satisfied with the knowledge that they are helping make a difference in the lives of the students that they teach.

A number of students will work with the Career Center in the hopes of finding a job that best suits their interests. Others will chtKise a more selfless path that includes a commionent to service, sometimes requiring two or more years of one ' s life to be given up. Yet for others, he -ond their time at Notre Dame lies further education. In order to accomplish this goal of liigher education, students must overcome the potential hurdle that graduate exams can create. Test preparation varies from student to student. Some will take the test on a whim, relying on their pre-existing kriowledge for success, while odiers take a more expensive route, buying books and takiiig courses offered by companies such as Kaplan arid Tlie Princeton Review. When test day arrives, one can expect nervousness and anxiety to characterize the test-taking experience. In what may only seem like fifteen minutes, after what for many seems like years of preparation, the test is over, and a celebration is warranted. One chapter of life has begun to close, while another is just about to open. There is no doubt that preparing for and taking a graduate exam is a stressful experience. One must remind oneself that while these tests will take part in detemiining what school will be atteiided, it will not measure future success or overall happiness. Whatever the results, accept them, refuse to be d Q " kl " deterred in your chosen career path, and enjoy x lur last ycLir at Notre Dame.

The Career Center offered preparatory ' services and employment opportunities to students serious about their pb and internship search. P ioto b Carolm McGrati- any students think of the Career Center as merely a place where they can get help finding a job as a graduating senior, or perhaps securing an iiitemship as a junior. But in fact, die Center can offer assistance for all Domers, from first-year students to alumni. In addition to GoIRlSH!, its online job recruiting system, the Career Center has a number of services, including career comiseling, workshops, resume reviews, career fairs, and alumni networking opportiu-iities. A first-year student begins by exploring the resources available in the Career Center and developing a prelimiiTary resume. Sophomores meet with career counselors and begin a career development portfolio wliile exploring career fields aiid attending career fairs. Many students choose to have an intemsliip before their senior year, leading juniors to often attend career fairs and use the Career Center services for help with researching, applying, and interviewiiig for internship positions available both during the school year and in the summer. Seniors are diinkiiig about full-time, postgraduate emplo inent and are thus deciding on specific industries and geographic locations. They attend numerous career fairs and interview with employers throughout the year, hoping to land the ideal job. Regardless of how maiiy career workshops a student attends or how many drafts of her resume she creates, nothing can prepare her for what will actually happen. Tlie panic, for example, that she feels on the first day of her internship as she struggles to figure out the copy machine or the overwhelming anxiet ' that will hit her as a senior when she realizes she only has a few months left of life iii the " bubble " are just a few of the obstacles that she will have to overcome. This terror is yet another aspect of the quest for a great career, a quest that is full of dark passages and stumbling blcxks. It is the Career Center diat acts as a guide for studaits, navigating and assisting them as they struggle to make a life beyond Notre Dame. 1 24 5 Sfc Tln e Career Center One female student hands in het resume to the CIA recruiting table at the Career Fair in January.

Since its founding in 1842, the world Iills laiown a university that strives to reach the top and then continues to push even further. Its studeiits and faculty are revered as the best of the best, and year after year rankijiss conducted hy the LIS.

Additionally, Notre Dame is honored to he given a spot in the nation ' s tcip ten " dream schcxils, " alongside schcxils such as Stanford, Ha rvard, and Yale. Tliis level of excellence would not be pcissible if it were not for the integral drixing force behiiid the University- that often goes overkxiked. Tlie administrative staff, including the Officers Group, the Office of the Provost, the Office of Student Affairs, and the Rectors, help ensure that students and faculty are never led astray and that the resources necessiiry to reach such liigh stMidards of academia are always available and attainable. The Officers Group is led hy President Reverend Edward A. Malloy for the seventeenth year in a row, wliile the Office of the Provost is currendy headed by Doctor Nathan O. Hatch, who has rtxently been re-ap xiinted to serve iinother five-year temi. Both groups work to ccxirdinate iiiid dex ' elop Notre Diime and its academic activities and functions. The Office of Student Affairs and the Rectors of Notre Dame work more closely with the face of the University - its students. These members of the University ' s staff live and work v ' ith students, instilling the tradition imd morals of the legendary institution. Students spend most of their time outside of the classrcxim and it is tlirough their interaction with these student-oriented divisions of the University staff that Notre Dame ensures that their future graduates develop as socially mature and spiritual individuals. Tlie tradition that makes up the top Githolic university in the nation is maintained and passed on by those members of the university who have devoted themselves to shaping the young minds that enter the doors of Notre Dame. Without these staff members, it is likely that this tradition v ould cease to exist as it has since 1842. RjBcrtxarB Front row: Rev. Paul Doyle, CSC, Kllon; Mr. Edward Mack, O ' Neill; Rev.

After the completion of spring fcxithall practices, the sophomore maiiagers personally evaluate each other based on qualities such as leadership, commitment, professionalism, and work ethic. This detemiines the twenty-one managers that will be asked to continue with the program their junior year. With each year, a maiiager ' s responsibility and work load greatly increases, as well as the lifetime memories and friendships that fomi. Following the conclusion of the regular football season, the juniors once again evaluate their peers. Assignments to sports for senior year are made based on the peer evaluation. Seniors are generally ecstatic to be chosen, regardless of which sport they are put in charge of. Reacliing their final year in the Organization, senicT managers have many major responsibilities, including making hotel and meal reservations, assisting in practices, ordering and distributing all the equipment for the team, handling laundry, traveling with the team, and basically taking care of any problem that may arise to keep everything running smcx)thly.

Although the team did not automatically qualify, it appeared as though the Irish men would qualify by Bucky Schafer for Nationals with the help of an at-large bid. Unfortunately, the NCAA decided to interpret the selection rules differently than in previous years, in a sense going against their own precedence, and the Irish men did not receive an at-large bid. For this reason, the team did not qualify as a whole, although Todd Mobley and Tim Mtxire qualified to compete at Nationals as individuals on the merit of their regional results, seventh and fifteenth respectively. Unfazed by the inclement weather at Nationals, Todd Mobley raced to his second All-American cross country ' finish by placing 27th, while Tim Moore finished a respectable 89th in the highly competitive race.

The season is divided into two sections, the fall tournaments and spring toumanients, which culminate in the Big East and NCAA Championships. In the fall tournaments, the team showed great promise for the bigger competitions of the spring to demonstrate their great talent. Sophomore Tommy Balderston, a two- year Notre Dame Monogram winner aiid kc ' member of the team, has come back to true f omi diis season, tie feels very strongly about the future. " Tlie fall prepared us for what is to come. We are very eager for the spring season and making a name for ourselves. " Led by captain Gavin Ferlic aiid second-year Head Coach John Jasinski, the young team composed mainly of freshmen and sophomores are poised for great things to come. The maturity of the teani has developed tremendously in the past year, as all work hard at developing their game and are constaiitly striving to improve. In fact, the team broke the Notre Dame scoring record this fall, an incredible by Diane Crary acliievement ior this young team. TTie d iiamic skills of Scott Gustufson, whe) was considered the MVP of the fall season, and Cole Isban, a very steady fresliman, contributed greatly to the team ' s success. These men, as well as the other three scoring players, made the men ' s golf team one of the best teanis in, Notre Dame ' s history. This team can only continue to improve with the promising talent diat the team has for the years to come. To sum up this year ' s team in the words of Balderston, " We have the talent to compete with the best, now we are just looking for the confidence.

With one of the most talented squads Notre Dame has ever seen, the Irish were in good position to reach the coveted NCAA tournament for the first time in the program ' s history. " The potential is there, " said Junic r defenseman Derek Smith. " Tliis has been our dream for several years now, and this season we could take it to the next level. " Senior defensemen Neil Komadaski agreed, " I have been waiting for this season for the past three years. We have a sense of urgency yet at the same time complete confidence in each other. " The Irish opened the season with a performance befitting their high expectations. After splitting wins with seascMKipeners against 15 Ohio State and Bowling Green, the Irish moved on to defeat 1 Boston College at Kelly Rink. Tlie event marked the opeiiing night for the Boston Qillege Eagles, and the unforgiving Irish squad sent a sellout crowd of 7 ,884 home disappointed. The win snapped an eight-game winless streak (0-6-2) for the Irish versus Boston Qillege that started during the 1995-96 season, and gave Notre Dame the early-season confidence they were looking for. " It was a big win for us, " said Head Coach Dave Poulin, " the team showed what they can do against aii outstanding hockey team. " Tlie Irish continued to prove their commitment to success against 3 ranked Maine at the December 28 Everblades Classic. The win htxisted the Irish to a 10-6-2 record and saw the return of goalkeeper Morgan Cey to the Irish lineup. Cey, sidelined due to orthascopic surgery over the suiruner, came back with a bang, stopping all tliirty-two shots he faced. " For me, it was great to he able to get back in the lineup and help the team out, " commented Cey, " but any success that I have is a direct result of my teammates ' talent. " It is this selfless commitment to solidarity that set this year ' s squad apart. Each member of the team had accepted their role, whether big or small. Each player understood that their contriburion was vital to the success of the whole, giving the Irish a LUiited front that they used to build mtnnentum over the course of the regular season. Qie liiglilight of the season was the Irish sweep of Micliigan for the first rime at home since 1981-1982 season. Tlie Irish went on to close the regular season with a 2-1 win over Lake Superior State. The Irish strong perfomiance led the temn to the CCHA Playoff series for the first rime since 1999-2000. Tlie Irish opened the series with a 4-2 win over Western Michigan, followed by a 4-0 fall to the same. However, the Irish did not give up and went aliead aiid beat Western michigan 54 on Jason Paige ' s overtime goal. Tlie Irish went on to lose to Ohio State 6-5 in the OCHA Super Six. For the first time in the program ' s history, the Irish earned a trip to the NCAA tournament. However, the Irish had to face the two-time defending national champion Minnesota Golden Gophers. The Irish jumped out to a 2-0 f irst-pericxl lead on goals by Cory McLean and Aaron Gill, only to see the Gophers score five unMiswered goals on the way to a 5-2 win over Notre Dame.

Ousting sL top ten teams en route to their undefeated start has also solidified Notre Dame as the tea:n to beat in their quest to repeat as national champiore. But die wins did not come easily. In a December bout at the home of traditional arclirival and third ranked Penn State, the match went down to the wire. Tlie Irish surrendered a 13-9 lead as the Nittany Lions stormed back to tie at 13 apiece. But Senior captain Kerr ' Walton shciwed the pc ise of a veteran, easily winning the deciding match by a 5-1 score. Against second ranked Ohio State, the women faced another heart-stopper. Notre Dame again faced a I3-all deadlock and the winner-take-all bout fell on die shoulders of Freshman saber Valerie Providenza. But Proxidenza stepped up to the challenge and defeated FreslmiLin Sv-venna Siehert 5-3, clinching the Notre Dame victor ' . The Irish also received luiexpected help from Jmiior walkon Natalie Bustamante. Her stunning 54 upset victory over Buckeye and tliree time Ail-American epeeist Alexandra Shklar proved crucial in a bout so closely decided. The Irish have been so successful this season due in large part to the ease at which new faces by Matt Mooney have stepped into their respective roles. Three star freshnien in particular have provided much needed support. Providenza and Angela Vincent have helped anchor a saber team wiiich has been the Irish strength all season.

Fortunately for the Irish, there have been many more of the former. Last year ' s national championship season saw the Irish lose four seniors to graduation. In their place stepped four freslmien. Tlie sahre pair of Patrick Ghattas and Matthew Steams headliiie the rookie group followed up by foilist Fraiikie Bontempo and epeeist Aaron Adjemian. If their talent is any indicarion, there may be more national titles in the near future. Neither are they facing the opposition alone. With the AIl-American triumvirate of Forest Walton, Michal Sobieraj, ;Tnd Derek Snyder backing them up, the treslimen have a deep well of talent and experience to draw from. Tliat experience would be needed as the f reslimen receivetl a baptism by fire very early in the season. A December dual meet at tliird-ranked Penn State matched the Irish against the team they had narrowly defeated for the national championship. Tlie rematch proved to be just as exciting. With the beuit tied at 13, the Irish Icxjked to Adjemian for the deciding point. The fresliman captured it in dramatic fasliion, rallying from a 3-1 deficit to force sudden death overtime at 3 all. He quickly scored the touch and Notre Dame knocked off the Nittany Lions, 14-13. Tlie tlirilling victory over Penn State helped continue a winning streak that began during the 2000 season. At the NYU Dual Meet, the Irish defeated fifth ranked Columbia and subsequently NYU to extend that streak to 90 consecurive matches. The record raiiked as the third longest streak in sclnxil liistory, the longest since the 1984-85 season. However, the streak was quickly struck down as 4 St. John ' s ousted the Irish in their next nuitch by a decisive 18-9 score. Tlie loss was disappointing, but Senior Matt Castellan said that the team has other goals to focus on, " A loss to St. Jolin ' s is not gonna make us say we ' re not gonna win. We ' re going for the repeat. " Tlie men had to regroup quickly as they faced second-ranked Ohio State in the Notre; Dame Dual Meet at the Joyce Athletic and Qin venation Center.

With only one senior in die starting lineup, die team looked to talent rather than e.xperience to pro ide support. Led b - the hitting of Junior second baseman Steve SoUnian and Sophomore Matt Edwards, the talent fulfilled their expectations, finishing second in the Big East in batting. Irish pitching, ho e ' er, more than proxed its ability ' to win games by itself. An experienced pitching staff anchored Notre Dame on the mound as eleven pitchers returned from last year ' s roster. Yet it was Sophomore Cliris Niesel who paced the veteran hurlers, finishing the season with a 9-1 record and a 2.65 ERA. As a temi, Notre Dame again staged a successful r ular season campaign, reeling off one stretch of seventeen straight wins. However, the team finished in third place during the Big East regular season and needed a tournament championship to secure an automatic bid to the NCAA championships. As the preseason favorite to win the Big East, the Irish had to clea r a large Rutgers hurdle just to meet expectations. Rutgers made them earn it. After dispatching the Scarlet Knights 9-3, the Irish needed only one more win to secure their second straight Big East tournament Championship. However, Rutgers fought their way back through the losers ' bracket and defeated Notre Dame 15-11 in a rematch, forcing a winer-take-all championship game. by Matt Mooney But beliind die liitting of Edwards and Jack Kaiser Award Winner Javi Sanchez, Notre Dame kept alive post-season aspirations by beating Rutgers 11-3.

With the automatic bid secured, the Irish could focus their energies on returning to the Collie World Series. Despite wins over Arizona and San Dego in the NCAA regionals, Cal State Fullerton proved an insurmountable foe. Notre Dame lost n ice, thereby ending their season and leaving a return trip to the CoU e World Series for another year.

After playing for the first time on a dirt field and blending together as a team, the fun was just about to begin. The events that occurred directly after the tournament began with a missed air flight, a 15 ' hour bus ride without showering, getting stuck in a snow storm somewhere in Tennessee, a bus without a working heater, and then returning to class Monday morning. Tliis trip would come to be known as " The Titanic. " Tlie trip was the type of bcinding that the team needed to understand one aiiother, and to be there for each other. It was the beginning of a season that was properly named " The Strength of Us. " Tliis is the story of the 2003 season for the Notre Dame softball team. The team had many setbacks, many times where they felt like falling, but there were many times where they lifted each other up. Even with these setbacks and mishaps, the team still made it to the NCAA Region VII Tournament, and only fell a couple of games short of making it to the Women ' s GiUege World Series. A lot of the success for the Irish was due to the outstandiiig leadership by the senior class. Three of the five seniors, Andrea Loman, Alexis Madrid, and Andria Bledsoe (now Andria H arriman) returned for their fourth year starting on the field. Lisa Mattison and Jessica Sharron were the most influential people to have as senior leaders and came back to show the uiiderclassmen how to keep the winning tradition alive.

After such a successful 2002 season, the team began the 2003 season optimistically and held their ground the whole way through. The season started out rough but the ladies showed what they were made of with victories over Ohio, Boston College, and a key win over nineteenth ranked Conneticut. These victories were followed by wins over Northwestern and Rutgers, among others. In fact, the games in which they were not victorious were extremely close and were often lost by only one point, and several went into overtime. The Irish ended the season with a 22-1 1 romp over Vanderbilt. The last time Notre Dame scored 22 goals in a game was on March 10, 2000, when the Irish defeated Ohio University 22-3.

N Ien ' s Tennis aces early season challenges In a seascin that concluded with the team ' s first ahaice from the NCAA tournament in r rel e tars, the Notre Dame Men ' s tennis team looks to rebound hack in the 2003-2004 season. With the addition of a -ers- tdented and promising fieshniim class, the Irish have set high goals for the incoming season. A iear ago, the Irish wiere faced with a tough situation after graduating sLx of eight starters fitom a team that reached the NCAA toumamait R-iund of 16 for the first time since 1994. With only two starters. Matt Scott and Luis Haddock, and Senior Brian Farrell who was recovering from shoulder surgery ' , returning from the previous season, the Irish had new faces placing at every position in their lineup. However, with the addition of Freshmen Patrick Buchanan and Eric Langenkamp, transfer Nicolas Lopez, and contributions from Junior Ben Hatten and Sophomores Brent DAmico, Jimmy Bass aiid Paul McNaughton, the Irish felt prepared for the challenges. As the spring arrived, the Irish had a tough start, falling 0-4. However, the squad never quit, ; nd the Irish fought harder than ever in order to turn things around. The team ' s best games were played at the end of the season where the Irish put themselves in a position to qualify for the NCAA tournament by winning the Big East title in Miami, Horida. After an eas ' win over St. John ' s University the squad was set to play against Big East rival Virginia Tech. As expected, the match against Virginia Tech was a great batde, but the Irish upset the liigher ranked team and edged them by only 4-3, winning the deciding doubles. As scheduled, the Irish were set to play the final against number one team and host, University ' of Miami, who had beaten the Irish earlier diat year. by Luis J. Haddock Still, die Irish came out strong and won three sets and lost one, only to see the match called off due to inclement weather. Consequently, there was not a Big East Conference champion, and the Irish missed their automaric bid to the NCAA. However, as Coach Bobby Bayliss remarked after the tough decision was made, " What was most remarkable about this team was their ability to fight back from a tough start and to be able to play the best tennis at the end, which showed a great level of maturity ' . " For the 2003-2004 season, the Irish will return five starters and add a ver ' strong freshman class compossed of Stephen Bass, Barry King, Irackli Akvlediani, Ryan Keckley, and Bobb - McNally. The Irish look forward to both a promising and challenging season, facing fifteen teams that finished the 2003 season in the national top 65.

" Though cliche, this theme proved particularly fitting for the 2002-2003 Notre Dame Women ' s Tennis Team. Their schedule regularly tested them against top opponents; a one weekend stretch included matches against 25 Kentucky, 1 1 Tennessee, and 1 Duke. The Irish struggled early on, falling short first against the top ranked Blue Devils. Hosting a 1 team for the first time ever at the Eck Center, the Irish could not capitalize on the play of Junior Caylan Leslie and Senior Captain Katie Cunha. Leslie defeated the 15th ranked singles player in the nation, Amanda Johnson, 6-2 and 7-5, while Cuiiha won both of her singles and doubles matches. However, their efforts were not enough, as the team could only muster two points, dropping a 5-2 decision. Two more close 4-3 losses against the Volunteers and the Wildcats left the Irish needing to regroup. Using the early adversity to their advantage, the teanr gradually began to leam how to win the big matches. The lady Irish closed out the regular season with wins in nine of their last twelve matches, giving them some much needed momentum to head into post-s eason play. Part of the reason for the reversal of the Irish ' s fortunes can be attributed in part to Coach Jay Louderback ' s adjustment in the lineup. His mid- season shift of Leslie to the number one singles posirion gave the team a much needed boost. Leslie finished the season with a 9-3 record at the top of the lineup. The Irish entered the rain-soaked Big East Tournament with the lofty expectarions accompanying a 2 seed. However, the rain would turn into a Hurricane as Notre Dame squared off against 1 seed Miami with the chance to avenge a regular season loss. Tlie finals proved to be a true clash of top seeds, as by Matt Mooney the two teams remained deadkxked going into a final, winner-take-all doubles match. But Sarah Jane Connelly and Kristina Stastny withstood a furious Miami rally to secure both of their matches, winning 8-6, and the school ' s fifth Big East Tournament Championship. With the win, the Irish also locked in a berth in the NCAA Championships. Notre Dame continued its postseason romp with a convincing 4-1 victory over Missouri in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. However, the team ' s mn was cut short as Vanderbilt ousted the Irish in the second round, 4-0. Leslie and fellow Junior Alicia Salas received invitarions to compete in the narional singles toumtiment. Both players bowed out in the first round, but their joint appearance remains noteworthy as it marks only the fifth time in Notre Dame ' s history that Women ' s Tennis has sent two players to the singles tournament.

Mothers and fathers struggle with strong emotions as they leave their sons and daughters behind, but their worries are abated by the idea that their children are being left in the caring and con forting amis of Our Mather. EXiring the Mass at the end of tliis weekend, parents are reminded that they ttxi are a vital part of the Notre Dame family as diey are invited to return to campus as full members of the family at anytime they wish. Tliis infonnal invitation lasts until tlie February of Junior year, when parents are fonnally invited to return to the University as Guests of Honor for Junior Parents Weekend. JPW marks a huge change for these parents as they are, for the first time, welcomed as guests in the home of their sons and daughters here at Notre Dame. Each year, the weekend provides parents with great insight into what life at Notre Dame is all about, and Junior Parents Weekend 2003 was no exception. The theme of " Wlierever We Go ... Gtxl, Guintry, Notre Dame " hit upon the tliree main elements of every ND student ' s life and gave parents the opportunity to really experience each of these components firsthand. The Gala oil Friday night consisted of booths for multiple " countries " offering delicious hors d ' oeuvTcs, opulent decorations, great music, and lots of dancing. Parents laughed the night away with their sons aiid daughters as they got to see how we party here at Notre Dame. Saturday brought with it many academic-relatCLl activities that allowed parents the opportiuiiry to meet their cliildren ' s favorite professors and helped them better understmid the academic pursuits of their sons and daughters. Mass was celebrated as a family that evening as all parents joined together with their children in prayer for the first time since Freshman Orientation. The Banquet on Saturday night celebrated that communion with great food and inspiring words from Fr. Malloy. Unfortunately, the weekend had to draw to a close; but the Brunch on Sunday morning was a great wa y to conclude the weekend and send the Guests of Honor back to their homes.

Although University Boxing was started in 1920 by Knute Rockne, Bengal Bouts got its name in 1931 when Dominic " Nappy " Napolitano had the idea to combine amateur sportsmanship with a charitable cause. Since then, Bengal Bouts has carried on a tradition of hard work in the gym and in the ring, and also fundraising for the less fortunate. This past year was no different, as over 120 young men worked hard through rigorous training for six weeks in order to be ready to fight. Thanks to the leadership and dedication of Senior captains Shawn Newberg, Clay Cosse, John Lynk, and Tom Pierce, Junior captains Tony Hollowell, Tommy Demko, and Pat Dillon, Coach Tom Uddes and many others, all who were involved in the program were instilled with a great work ethic and also a sense of pride in the tradition in which they were partaking. All were pushed hard physically, and also pushed to get out and get pledges from local businesses to support the charitable cause, the Holy Cross Missions in Bengal. As always, the Bouts themselves were exciting and entertaining. Thousands of students, faculty, and alumni bought tickets and came out to the Joyce Center to support the fighters in all four rounds. There was quite a mix of experienced veterans and those who were fighting in their first Bouts among those in the finals. All four Senior captains made it to the final fight, with two of them, Shawn Newberg and John Lynk, winning their respective weight classes. All in all, it was a successful year, because so many young men were willing to make the commitment to work hard and fight to support a great cause. pushes foriA ard by Nate vScliroederl 202 I teciiding- who becomes the champion of each weight class call he challenging since the mm are detemiined not to give up during the fight and " le;n-e it all in tlie ring.

Running from April 5 ' ' ' to April 27 ' ' 2003, virtually every student and faculty member at Notre Dame watched or played in a Bookstore Basketball game. The teams alone made up over one fourth of the entire student body, with many more students coming out to watch the games. Teams battled wind, rain, and cold to prove who could be the best or, in some cases, the goofiest of Notre Dame basketball. Also, with the proceeds from the tournament going to a local charity, players had fun and ccmtrihuted to a good cause at the same rime. With team names such as " This is the most we ' re ever going to score at ND, " the tournament provided students with a relaxing and often humorous study break. Not everyone, however, took the tournament lightly. Many teams aspired to win the world ' s largest outdoor 5 m-5 basketball tournament, and " RBC " eventually cmiie out on top. The team defeated three top ten teams in their road to the ritle, including the top-ranked " Adworks, " the 5 ' " ' ranked " Li-Z- Boy, " and finally the second ranked " NDToday.com " in the championsliip game. More women ttxik part in tliis year ' s tournament thiin ever before. Whether they chcxise to compete with the boys or keep to the other girls, they played hard and had fun. Qie of the most-used tricks by the women is to wear skimpy clothes and jump all over the guys to try and gain a victory. However, many girls ' teams take the tournament just as seriously as the guys do. Over the years, women have definitely become an undeniable force in Bookstore Basketball. The toumamerit was a huge success both for the teams who participated in it and for the local charity for which the tournament raised funds. soars to nev heights by Greg HUtz 206 L Bookstore Basketball Reacliixig- fur the Kis- kct, RBt " attempts to NikIc a shut.

At NiJtre Dame, the challenge does not come unmet, or unrehearsed. For aspiring actors and actresses, the opportunity knocks early, and auditions for a play that will he shown late in the semester start as early as the second week of school. Gnnpetition is fierce for a small-cast play like The Glass Menagerie. Of the twenty- hopefuls who received a call-back for second auditions, only four of them were awarded the desired spots to perfonn in the prcxluction; Senior Katy Kertz as Amanda Wingfield, ]ui ior Molly Topper as Laura Wingfield, Senior Tom Conner as Tom Wingfield, and Junior Bryce Cooper as Jim O ' Connor. Rehearsals for Tlie Glass Menagerie began six weeks before the actual production for a grueling five days a week, 7-11 PM. Stage crew began work about a week before prtxluction to get the stage ready. Clearly, the production put on by the FTT Department required more than the average play-goers could see as they watched the performance from their seats on opening mght. Molly Topper, a junior FFT major who played Laura Wingfield, coinmented on acting, " Most actors are aware that they are performing and rarely lose focus that the audience is there. " Occasionally things on stage don ' t go as they were rehearseel; therefore the actors must improvise. Tire last night of prcxiuction of Tlie Glass Menagerie posed a small obstacle for characters Jim O ' Qinnor (Bryce Cooper) and Laura Wingfield (Molly Topper) as they failed to break Laura ' s beloved glass unictmi, one of the most poignant elements of the script. To quickly create the right aura, Jim sat down so hard that the couch rose up on two legs mul Laura could not sit back dowii on the couch.

On Friday, December 5, 2003, Girroll Hall put on a huge show for the entire campus. Members of the dorm helped decorate a tliirty foot Chrisnnas tree on the dorm ' s front lawn. Around 7O0 that night, all who attended the show gathered in a Cliristmas prayer and watched in delight as the enomious tree lit up the night sky. After the tree was lit, students sipped their hot chocolate and listened to members of the Glee Club perfonn classic Christmas carols. On Sunday of that same weekend, Keenan Hall held its yearly Chrismias bash, Tlie Keenan Reindeer Roast. In the days before the event, members of Keenan Hall decorated the front of the dorm with Christmas lights in the shape of their signauire " K " and a giant red stocking.

" BriiUi touched so many hearts - liis family, liis friends, and even people he had met only once. Brian not only left footprints on hearts, but he transformed them. He taught people how to have passion for life, and in sti mi n - wa -s, how to truly lo -e. Brian made the ordinar - extraordinar - : whether it was eating dinner in the dining h;dl with friends, dri ing home to watch his sister play basketball, or just watching a movie. He had a wa of filling petiple ' s hearts with joy and happiness with his mere presence. Brian comforted many peers freshman year when they were homesick or insecure in tlieir new en iroriments. He shtired liis kive of Notre Diunc with everyone. Brian encouraged his fellow engineers when the classes L;ot tough and e ' er ' one felt like gi ing up. He shared his sense of humor with those indi idu;ils who needed it most. Many of us share die common niemor - of Bri;in ' s love and friendsliip. Our hearts are forever changed because of these lasting impressions. While our hearts may ache at the loss of such a unique ;ind wonderful person, let us rememlx r what Brian shared widi all of us - his laugh, his hugs, iind most of all, his knc. And let us never forget that he is always with us in the footprints on c ur hearts. ■Courtesy of Annie Moransld Seniors A 329 Abiouness, Lauren 234 Abplanalp, Jeremiah 234 Abranis.Nick 89 Accetta, Anthony 234 Accumanno, Sallymarie 98 Ackroyd, Rebecca 86 Adams, Brian 201,234 Adams, Christopher 87 Adams, Laura 47 Adams, Ry;in 67 Adimari, Cynthia 234 Adjemian, Aaron 180 Adrian, John Paul 77 Agarwal, Mudit 234 Aimonovitch, Mary 234 Ainsworth, Erin 83 Ains worth, Thomas 234 Alaniz, Monique 69, 92 Alarie-Leca, Sam 88 Alher, David 194 Albert, Anthony 234 Alcuai, Chantal De 251 Alessi,Renee 73,212 Alexander, Alvin 148 Alexander, Jeffrey 234 Alexander, Matthew 234 Alexandron, Ans 70 Alge, Brigette 66,234 Allbeny.

Closing Learning to Grow Closing A 345 I dosiiTLg Phoui by Sarah Sdmdder When the sun is shining down im the golden statue of Our Lady , tlie studaits at Notre Dame are inevitably f illed with hiippiness. Witli very few sunny days on campus, they have learned to cake advantage of the ones they are given. Strolling ;iround aimpus with friends, family, or a special someone invokes the best of spirits in even the biggest grinchcs. It is especially exciting when the first hint of spring appears on campus. With the budding flowers comes the daydreams of warm summer nights and lazy days at the beach. The knowledge of the horraul his winter inontlis seems to escape from the memories of Notre Dame students. Their only ccncem at the moment is whether to play Frisbee i m the qu;id ( ir take " a nap outside their dorm. No one can possibly realize the difference that sun and warmth make in the lives ot Notre Dtune students until thcv ' have witnessed it first hand.
