Yet. we are looking back to our past years, too. When we reflect on our educational years at URI. it seems strange that the memories and moments we recall most vividly are sometimes those times we have nurtured well beyond the con- fines of any classroom. If there is any one word to describe what has probably affected us most here, that word might be " growth.” Contrary to much prevailing opinion. URI does not op- erate in it ' s own little microcosm de- tatched from the rest of the world. Rath- er, we deal with the same problems that face people outside the University. The difference is, we incorporate these prob- lems in our intellectual growth to come up with a more rational way to deal with the problems. When we first arrived at UR I we were mostly naive, young freshmen. We prob- ably each came packed with a bag of misconceptions that we thought were mature views on life. College life seemed like an open excuse to rebel and find out exactly who we real- ly were. We found it difficult to see the fine line drawn between exploration and stupidity. Each time we put ourselves into social situations, we tested our new " grown up behavior,” we felt we had acquired just because we had entered college. It was not long before we had lost perspective and began to realize that we may have abused some of those things we had thought were symbolic of maturity. In our own naivity, we may have all sacri- ficed maturity for misguided symbols of adulthood. 3 -4s time at URI passed, we noticed a wide gap between ourselves and the people we left be- hind in our home towns. Our interests differed where before they had always been in agree- ment. It was at this point of becoming aware of the gap that we really started to understand the true meaning of a college education. It was not them, but us who had changed and became concerned with things that seemed totally out of the ordinary to our old friends. Our minds and interests grew beyond theirs. A very important and confusing change that we had to deal with was undoubtedly the mis- givings we had at some point or another, about our sexuality. Remember, if you can, how tough it was to make the transition from dealing with high school boys and girls to dealing with people who were well on their way to becoming ma- ture men and women. In a time when morals and values changed so rapidly, right and wrong did not always coin- cide with the values of Mom and Dad. And decisions that helped form our individuality were frequently very hard to make. But the painful decisions we pushed ourselves through were important in our steady growing process. IV U.R.I. Possibly the most disconcerting thing for someone who just arrived at UR I is that uncomfortable feeling of being constantly lost and confused, not knowing where to go to or who to turn to for help. It seems that for most college students, once all these unpleasantries are out of the way, the next natural step is to be- come involved in a loving relationship with the school, with fellow students, with education, with teachers, and most of all, with a special someone. Getting totally involved with someone may be the ultimate way to discover just who you really are. We experimented with the idea of love and being in love because we wanted to experiment with the responsibilities as well. We gradually grew to become more responsible in all areas of ourselves, and therefore, we could share real love with others. In our crucial years of growth, it is essen- tial to set an image of one ' s self. Each one of us must keep a picture of the ideal self in our own minds to serve as a model of perfection. Each day through every ac- tion. we either work to come closer to this goal, or we deviate from it. It is a step by step process, usually entailing both some steps toward, and some steps away, from the image self. wrwB •xm, We need time to avoid worrying about tests, our grades and our future job prospec- tives. We have to take the time alone to deal with ourselves as vulnerable moldable chil- dren, with so much more to learn and so much more to do. We can sometimes forget to concern our- selves with the important task of soul searching that is essential in personal growth. It is necessary to stop and check to make sure we are growing on the right path to become that perfect person we imagine ourselves to someday become. We sometimes become so caught up in get- ting things done superficially, that we re- gard time spent just dreaming as non-prof it- able. Thinking time is not a waste of time. Pon- dering the real truths, not merely the imme- diate, obvious ones, can be a revealing, growing process. 10 When we first came to URI probably few of us had much ambition and direction to reach some blurry, far away goal. Many of us initially came to URI because everyone else in our graduating high school classes were planning to come here. As time went by and we became involved with each other, we became increasingly aware that we were really not who we thought we were in many ways. Four years have come and gone and we look back on where we are now compared to where we began. After all, this time it seems kind of funny to see that after with these four years of growing and changing behind us. we are still basically the same individuals we were way back then. by Nancy Kutcher and Bill Potter Faculty Strike Delays Start Of School Year Pencils and books remained idle as summer vaca- tion melted into the school year. But there were plenty of teachers’ dirty looks for students or anyone else who tried to get on campus for the scheduled first day of classes of the 79-80 school year. URI was in the midst of its first faculty strike. For about two weeks, professors walked the pavement, picket signs held high. They were fed up, they said with " myopic management policies " and " intrangience” of negotiators for the state Board of Regents and the URI administration. They bemoaned fading state support for higher education as they demanded a larger pay raise and more benefits than they had been offered. The Regents, on the other side, shouted treason and called union negotiators unreasonable, stub- born and unwilling to compromise. Demanding an end to the illegal strike, they eventually got an injunction against the picketing professors from Superior Court. Reporters and photographers invaded the campus as the state ' s attention turned to Kingston. Front pages and nightly news broadcasts featured a seemingly endless parade of professors, adminis- trators, regents . . . . . . And, of course, students. They certainly weren ' t forgotten. Throughout the strike, it seemed all parties claimed to have the students’ best interests at heart. The regents claimed their contract offer was an attempt to keep tuition costs down, and faculty union chiefs said the strike was a protest against the ways the system had failed the students as well as themselves. Sometimes, though, it seemed the real students and their feelings and needs were lost to the combatants amid all the rhetoric and progaganda. The students weren’t lost, of course, They knew precisely where they were: In Kingston, in Sep- tember, with no lectures to sit through, no notes to take, no assignments to study. It was fun, for awhile, to have a few extra days of lazy summer. There was time to play softball, basketball, frisbee, football on the quad; lounge in the sun; watch TV; go to Boston, Newport, Block Island, local beaches; meet people in the Pub or at dorm and frat parties; see movies; go camping; sleep late; write home or maybe go home for a visit during the week. It was fun for a while, but then the strike didn’t end. More time passed and it still didn ' t end. Frustration and boredom descended on the cam- pus as the strike wore on, and anger, at the professors, the system, the school, " where is this education we’re paying to get, anyway?” Days melted into one another, and after awhile nobody listened when someone said the end was in sight. Then one day negotiations moved to Providence, where the governor and other media- tors pushed both sides to an agreement very early one Thursday morning after a marathon session. Classes would start Monday. The strike was over. But the problems it caused would linger on for the rest of the year. The Faculty Senate stuck two weeks of school into the middle of intercession to make up for the time lost during the strike. Students were un- happy with that. The regents refused to pay faculty members for time lost during the strike. The professors were unhappy with that. They threatened to strike again and took the issue into arbitration. Despite publicity generated by the strike, security problems, a deteriorating library and unsafe labo- ratories, public officials in Providence didn ' t seem any more committed to solving these prob- lems than they had been previously. It was the kind of adversity that tests a communi- ty ' s ability to hold together, to endure. Some say the strike shattered the campus community into several small islands divided by uncrossable oceans. That may, in some cases, be true. But as the year comes to an end it seems the strike helped most people at URI grow, albeit painfully, to a fuller understanding of themselves, their neighbors and the issues that effect everyone on campus. by David Gregorio M m ; 1 J S jy qei 1 jf rSKrl n h H Jm JKti A ■■ It ISJ lV- i w , $ ▼ J Gir I it a i i M . j| aJfPETITION m 4® STOP JHthe strik 17 I walked anxiously among the stream of freshmen edging through the huge green doors that open into Independence Auditorium. Botany III was my first undergraduate science course and I approached it with the caution of a timid kindergartner. My first glimpse of Elmer A. Palmatier did, however, help to offset my nausea. He looked like L. L. Bean himself. The tails of his red plaid CPO jacket draped like a tent on his protruding belly and flopped over his faded wrangler jeans. Elmer held a bottle of something that looked like lime kool-aid and for a moment, I thought he was doing a Gaterade commercial for " The American Sportsman.” “This is my flask of phytoplankton,” he announced. “It’s an ecosystem in a bottle ... see ... and if I cover it with a ' black box ' I’ll expect you to tell me what the inputs and outputs of the system are. " T hat was easy. If he put the poor little plants in a black box, they would die from lack of sunlight and there’d be nothing in the box but dead phytoplankton. Botany was going to be a breeze. Elmer began the class with a little poem: There should be no monotony When studying your botany . . . On hearing that, I was reassured that I had not mistakenly walked into an English 110 class. Only a science professor could have written something so absurd! Then I began to get this paranoid feeling that somehow the class had switched to Philosophy 101 while I was napping. “Difficult simplicity is the highest form of art.” I was certain it was philosophy because it made no sense to me, but my trusty Timex said Monday, 9:35 am ... it was still Elmer ' s domain. Elmer wanted us to be good students. His idea was to challenge the information we read in our books with current periodicals. I never challenged my twelve-year old sister before . . . why would anyone who wrote a university text lie to me? It was then that I realized I was no longer in high school. Botany III was a college course and Elmer Palmatier was a college professor. The class was far from " a breeze, " but with Elmer ' s help I made it through and matured into a college student. by Ted Kutcher J. Mackintosh J McLellan 18 Who ' s the man inside Ballentine, behind the smile, under the curly top with all the brains and personality in the world? You’ve got it - Richard Sisco, the man we students voted to the top twelve favorite teachers of all six hundred in the University. This is a man who’s dream is to create for URI a law school of its very own. That takes enthusiasm. And enthusiasm is the name of the game for Mr. Sisco. Some people consider accounting and law to be very dry subjects. Yet Sisco never allows a dull moment to sneak into any of his classes. Perhaps this is because he avoids preparing structured lectures. Instead, he just speaks on the subjects in front of the class as his thoughts flow spontaneously. Sisco divulged his magic formula: " I present the material in two ways,” he said. " First I give my students the material in theory. Then I give them the practical application.” This, he is confident, is what makes the classes interesting, and what makes the material stick. Reading about a case in a text book is usually quite a different thing from seeing how it works in real life, he explained. In a similar setup to the alcohol counseling and health advising centers available to students on campus now, Sisco has plans to add to these services a legal counseling center to aid students having trouble with the law. Sisco believes every student’s education should be well rounded. His students are required to present case studies orally before the rest of the class. " This helps them gain the expertise of analyzing and presenting the material on their feet. " Afterall, Sisco reasoned, what good is it to have knowledge of the case in your head if you can’t let anyone know what it is? " At the end of the semester, my students will have learned to present themselves before their peers, and they may have even learned a little law at the same time. " Sisco jested. When asked how he felt about his teaching profession, he openly admitted, " I love every minute of it. You just can’t put a price tag on the rewards.” by Nancy Kutcher 19 21 I — XiBUMy- WE ' U Go i vc frWtf 1 LW ArtlcMJ UUMy Fuuo TtfiiK . snwono 3 V; -» tKue uTwtrrsmrg 22 “The Great American Library Fundraiser” The spotlight shone on ten men, scantily clad in bathing suits and gym shorts, strutting their stuff across the stage. The loud and sometimes lecher- ous cheering of the mostly female audience drowned the blaring music. The University’s first " Mr. URI” all-male beauty contest was underway. A visitor to campus within earshot of the din in the Union Ballroom that Tuesday evening in Feb- ruary might have asked, " Why aren’t those stu- dents studying in the library?” The rambunctous goings-on had a more scholarly intent than appearance indicated. Ironically, the quality of studying in the library would be directly enhanced by the " Mr. URI " show. " We just wanted to have a fundraiser that would attract a lot of people to make money for the library, " explained Lauren Richard, the show’s chairperson, " and we thought a male beauty pageant would be fun and different. " The show was part of “The Great American Library Fundraiser, " sponsored by students to raise money and create publicity to help URI ' s ailing library. Why is a private fundraiser among student need- ed to raise money for a state- funded library at a university " ? Staggering inflation rates of ten percent or more sent prices of library materials to the moon and beyond, even back in the days when people thought they ' d never get used to a 50C gallon of gas. State funding for the URI library hasn’t kept up, and for the past few years, there just hasn’t been money for adequate staff or materials. In fact, a mid-70 ' s survey of nineteen colleges and universities placed URI ' s library near the bottom in professional staff size, total expendi- tures, librarians-per-students and clerical and technical staff. The dean of the library, George Parks, has point- ed out that a library the size of URI’s needs 52.000 new books every year just to keep up. The library has fallen far short of that figure in recent years, and this year purchased only 23.000 new books. Staff problems at the library are just as bad, and have been for several years. There are more statistics, volumes of figures to demonstrate again and again the enormity of the gap between what the library is, and what it should be. As grim as the statistics are, the reality is more depressing. Empty shelves; missing reference books and periodicals; broken equipment and too few staff members to turn to for help distress and anger students engaged in research and study, chasing them off campus and even out of state in search for needed materials. Legislators have seen the statistics, and have come to campus to catch a glimpse of the condi- tions. But the coffers still have not opened up enough and the library sinks deeper and deeper every year toward academic oblivion. So in 1980, the students launched the Great American Library fundraiser, surpassing its goal of $5,000, which is not even a fraction of the dollars needed to bring the library up to snuff. Perhaps the concerned response of students to the fundraising drive will jar loose some bucks for books from the politicians from Providence won ' t be winning any beauty, popularity or maybe even reelection contests if the students in Kingston have their way. by David Gregorio 23 L. Greenwald Perhaps the most common practice at URI is the dreaded " all nighter " which takes its toll on every student without exception. In every dorm and every frat there will be a select group that will take it upon itself to make the long stand until morning, in order to pull out a good grade from an almost sinking ship. I remember that feeling of urgency that drove me to the limit of endurance in the quest for good grades. On more than one occassion I have had a 64 oz. bottle of Coke at my side and a pack of cigarettes in my top pocket as the only compan- ions I could count on to last the night with me. I can ' t count the times different people would offer to spend the night with me to catch up on some work they had let get too far ahead of them. But my own problem, procrastination, would be my own doom, and would leave me with no one to count on but myself. I remember one night in particular when I had an especially difficult test in Music 101. I had not been to class for about four weeks. I went up to Copyright and had copied all the notes that I could lay my hands on. As I waited, I saw several classmates who were in the same predicament. Each of them seemed to have an excellent reason for missing weeks of class that made my meager excuse of a dying parent seem almost inconsequential. " It’s a shame that so much bad luck had been levelled against the Music 101 class,” I said to myself. You know, it just didn ' t seem fair that so much tragedy should hit everyone in the same class and the same time. I snatched my notes from the lady behind the counter and dashed by back to my dorm room to stuff four weeks of class notes, totalling two- hundred and twenty five pages, into my brain in one night. Feeling as though the night would be a useless attempt at cramming, I went to a friend’s room where I hoped to find some solace. My heart almost fell through the floor to find a keg was just being tapped. Of all the things to see when I had ten hours of studying before me! It appeared to be some kind of omen that seemed to say, “Enjoy yourself . . . you ' ll be studying all night. " I drank a beer or two and thought about all the work I had to do. The thought just seemed to make me have one or two more. But I had to study, so I headed back to the lounge where I left my notes. As I neared the door, my breathing and heartbeat simultaneously ceased as I found the door locked with my notes - and cigarettes - locked inside. The clock struck midnight. There I was with no notes, no time and no hall director. My heart began beating again, my respi- ration returned, and I pulled at my hair until I came up with a great idea: the campus cops. With their usual quickness, the police were on the scene in about thirty minutes. After I retreived my notes, I headed for my quiet room. But as I turned the key and slowly opened the door, something hit the door from the other side with such force, it knocked me into the one across the hall. The people from across the hall burst out and started screaming that I should not get so drunk when there are other people trying to study. I just shook my head in disbelief. After they retired, my room mate came out to tell me to leave because he had an “overnight guest. " So there I stood, with no where to go and still a whole lot of work to do . . . I sat in the hall in front of my room for the rest of the night reviewing my notes until 5:30 the next morning. As I looked at my watch, the steady drip of acid in my stomach reminded me that it had been eleven hours since it had felt any solid food. Deciding it was time to go on a food search, I ventured to Butterfield Dining Hall where the first shift were going in to prepare breakfast. There is no more determined creature in the world than a Butterfield breakfast lady. She and her commrades had made up their minds not to give this starving, half- crazed student a morsel of food. As I lay begging at the feet of these food misers, I felt a strong hand grab me and yank me off the ground. I looked up and saw the cop that had let me into the study lounge the night before. Neither he nor I was very pleased to renew our acquaintance so early in the day. The cafeteria finally opened, I inhaled my breakfast, and reviewed my notes for the last time. I ran to Fine Arts to take the test. As I crashed through the classroom doors, I almost fainted when I saw an empty room. I checked the time, place and date. Everything seemed in place. Way over in the far corner stood an old black board scrawled with: " Music 101 has been can- celled and the test will be held next week at the same time. " Again, I shook my head in disbelief. By “Wild Bill " Potter For six years, URI President Frank Newman has captained the great ship URI through both calm and stormy waters. From atop the modern struc- ture of the Administration Building, he charts out various courses for the University to take. Day and night Newman carries out the job of presi- dentmg over a sea of 12,000 students. " It’s very difficult to enjoy a job like this if you don ' t feel at home with it,” Newman said. And home is a place Newman doesn ' t get to see very often, though he does find time for his wife, Lucille and his son, Mike. He said he can always count on his family for support, and sometimes they can be " friendly critics. " But, " on some occassions they are on the other side,” Newman said, though he prefers to " keep those (in- stances) in the family.” This year has been the hardest for Newman, but he ' s satisfied with the way things are currently going. " The University is just beginning to get itself together, " he said, and added that a lot of frustrations came out during the strike and nego- tiations, and the University is finally pulling itself back together. " I think there is a way to solve the University ' s problems, but it’s not a magic solu- tion. " Newman said. " Things aren’t going to happen without a lot of hard work. " 26 " People assume if I was only committed, all the problems would disappear, " Newman said. How- ever, the problems will be dismissed only if we work together,” he added. " If you look beneath the surface, we ' ve made enormous progress. " For example, Newman referred to the improved fire alarm system, the renovated landscape of the Memorial Union, and the new Information Center. “There ' s still a lot to be done,” he said, and " it ' s frustrating that it happens so slowly.” One source of frustration is fighting for the Uni- versity at the state level. " It’s a never-ending task to get the resources for this school, " the President admitted. Recently, he said, the Board of Regents was given a tour of the underfurnished labs. While Newman seemed to think the Universi- ty may get some extra much needed-funds from the state, he ' ll still be ready to fight again next year. Part of the reason Newman is fighting, is for the students. Newman said he enjoys talking to them and playing football with them and his son on Sunday afternoons. " A large majority of students are fun to be with, " he said. While most students recognize the president on sight, Newman chuck- led, " occassionally I run into someone who doesn’t know me. " According to Newman, the students here are tough. At any other university, he explained, " if a course requirement is to parachute into the Ama- zon, the students will ask if the university will have a station there to help them out. Tell a URI student to parachute into the Amazon for this class, and he ' d say, Okay, what time? and I ' ll be there!’” Just as the students are tough, so is the Universi- ty. " We should be very tough with ourselves, " Newman said. And he said there is a need for a tough judicial system for students. If a student doesn ' t want to follow the rules, he shouldn’t be at the University, Newman said. On the issue of security, Newman admits to having made a mistake. " We would have been a lot better if we continued to run the old security plan. " Here he was referring to mistakingly let- ting the evening manager program die down to the low numbers. " We should have made a deci- sion and moved into them, " he said. " In an operation this size we make mistakes, " the president said. “We have to learn from (them). " Considering the future, Newman is presently working for his PhD in History. As to the question of when he ' ll take his leave of URI, Newman replied, " I’ll worry about that next year. " by Rob Rainville 28 He walks briskly into the room with a determined look on his face. Within seconds class begins, and political science professor David Warren launches into his animated discourse. The lecture is punctuated with strings of long, colorful adjectives and strong hand gestures. " The first world government is exuding with power . . . see, I’m exuding.” Sometimes he stumbles over words, an indication that his mind is working much faster than he can talk. He paces as he speaks, occasionally leaning over to point at an unsuspecting student and ask, " Isn’t that right, my friend?” Able to sense when his audience is signing " off the air, " possibly due to the hypnotic quality of his energetic performance, he battles valiantly to hold their attention. Habitually, he pauses to ask, " Are you with me?” or to entice some wayward listener to " come back, little Sheba.” Dr. Warren has been known to literally chase anyone daring to leave his class early, with the intention of making them stay for the duration. He doesn’t hesitate to display his wry sense of humor, drawing appreciative laughter from every corner of the room, " ... and this leads to dialectical materialism what ever the hell that is . . . " He sees a need for order and attention in a learning situation, " People are harder to interest today, " he says, reflecting on how student attitudes have changed since he came to URI in 1953. Still, he loves the challenge of lecturing — especially in the fundamental courses. Political Science 113 and ■i 16. A graduate of Brown University and the Fletcher School of Law and Diploma- cy, Warren’s college career was interrupted when he served as an infantry- man in Europe during World War II. Though it didn’t directly influence his later decision to study political science, he looks back on the experience as worthwhile. " I became aware of the pervasiveness of conflict in human affairs,” he says. People are always striving for conflicting goals. Politics seeks to resolve, limit, restrain these differences.” by Janet Thouin T. J. Paglione Every University possesses it’s share of both outstanding and inadequate members among its doctoral charter. One general observation is there are at least 10 superb instructors for which each institution is well-noted. The key to success, for any student, is to locate these professors and reap the bountiful rewards received through this instruction. In the 1950’s Pennsylvania State University, an institution well noted for its supremacy in the speech communications field, carried a student who possessed the capabilities, enthusiam, intellect and motivation to become a leading figure in communications, similar to the Barbara Walters of 1980. Dr. Agnes Doody, (the student in question), of our speech communications department, comically refers to the times in her scholastic career when she was absolutely certain that teaching was not the field for her. A mere fluke instigated Dr. Doody ' s first attempt at teaching; the rest is history. Some- where amidst the first semester of her education she caught the ' bug ' , and acknowledged teaching speech communications to be her forte in life. Born in Connecticut, Dr. Doody has general knowledge of New England. When a job opened here at URI, she saw the irresistable opportunity to take a newly- formed Speech Department and create a strong, dynamic and first-rate division. Taking hold of the reigns Dr. Doody began to pursue this goal at full speed. Dr. Doody’s skills and attitudes allowed a tremendous upsurge in the department ' s staff, presenting fulfillment of her goal. Her performances in class are unique and electric. Dr. Doody demands excellence of her student ' s speech performances. Somehow she miraculously tells you your speech was a failure without hurting your feelings. Not only are the classes dynamic, persuasive speaking lessons, they are abundent with current information pertanent in understanding today’s world. Each class is bursting with energy and excitement. For those who have not yet seen Dr. Doody in her astounding performances, and plan to remain at URI for at least two years, do not miss this opportunity to participate in one of the most fruitful experiences obtainable here at URI. by Liz Hahn J. Kaminsky 29 30 And After Studying . . . In every dorm there is always at least one person that hardly ever comes out of his her room under any circum- stances other than fire drills. This indi- vidual never parties or gets involved any kind of social function. I am one of those few that you never see or hear about. In short, I am a troll. No kidding, I really am. That is why I was so surprised when the yearbook staff asked me to write a feature on the different aspects of partying at URI. There was one guy who use to talk about the Beach Comber as if it were an altar of some kind. He told me how he would go every Sunday to hear some godless creature, Wall Payne, play out-of-tune rock and roll, with which they would wallow in spilt beer, lying on their backs doing the “turtle. " I often wanted to go and see these absurd antics the guys had told me about, but I just could not believe that people would lower themselves to that type of ridiculous behavior. I remember one night when they had a “Heffenreffer party” on my hall. Of course, I was invited out of politeness, but I decided to stay in my room and catch up on some PLS 242. 32 J. McLellan L Greenwald » • WhsJ 34 I tried to refuse but he grabbed my frail arm and dragged me behind him to- ward his room. The cards were soon dealt out and someone asked me if I wanted a beer. At first I did not want one but I saw every one else looked a bit inebriated, including the football player that had insulted my integrity. I figured it was okay to join in this one time as a type of ironic gesture. Since I don’t drink often, it didn’t take long for me to start feeling good and loosening up. It wasn’t long before I had beaten everyone in the card game, as my knowledge in my major, prob- ability and statistics, made me $63.98 richer. The party started at 7:30 on the dot and the hall was packed before 8. On three seperate occassions I tried, un- succesfully, to make it to the bathroom only to have my path blocked by a huge football player who nicknamed me Radar after Corporal O’Reilly in " Mash.” I became very offended and decided I should stand up for my rights. Briskly, I strutted out to give him a piece of my mind. As I walked through the door, some one shoved a beer in my hand and told me I had to be part of a big poker game. “We need a fourth man and you are elected,” he said. J McLellan J Mclellan W Koertlng 35 It was 1 1:30 by the time I had beaten the pants off those would-be card players. I found myself wanting to go out and do something to show those guys what a sport I really was. I suggested that we go to the Pub but no one had any money after the game except me. I was having such a good time that I offered them their money back if they would go with me to the Pub. When we got there I made a beeline to the bar and bought three pitchers of beer. I was really excited to show my new found friends, as well as myself, a good time. I drank one beer after another, just trying to keep up with the guys. Soon, each was looking at me with a sort of victorious smirk on his face. I felt de- fenseless against these well disciplined drinkers. Soon my head was spinning and I could barely stop my feet from wob- bling. Every deep breath I took remind- ed me of how many beers I had. I really don’t remember what happened after that except I vomitted in a drunken stupor for most of the night. The next morning all the guys were glad to see me for a change. They told me how funny I had been the night before. It was strange . . . even though I felt like the whole world was caving in on my head and every noise seemed ampli- fied ten times, I felt a certain comrade- ship with these guys as they helped me through my first real stint at partying. By " Wild Bill " Potter As dusk sneaks over daylight, a seemingly normal, active community transforms into a foreboding haven for the spirits of the unknown. Vampires can be seen on rare occasions flitting across dark streets. Ghouls and ghosts reveal them- selves during this rare opportunity. The supernatural creep and crawl out of hiding. For as long as a two week stay, the dead return to life and haunt ordinary houses. This unusual scene occurs right on our very campus. Once every year in late October URI celebrates All Hallows Eve, the old medieval tradition commemorating the dead. But here it is more than that. It is the opportunity for even the straightest, most studious adults to let loose . . . and get away with it. Hallowe en here at URI is a tradition in itself. Dressing up in costume is only one of the holiday festivities. Dorms, fraterni- ties and university organizations hold elaborate Halloween dances, parties and trick or treat events. Trees, bushes and buildings even get involved in the holiday scene. In the morn- ing, every living and non living thing displays itself, draped in miles of toilet paper streamers. Shaving cream and water ballon fights strike some corridors or gathering places at any given time. But for a while it wasn’t all good clean fun. Halloween also brought along food fights. For weeks before the 31st, every meal in the dining halls was tense. Dinner was served as usual. Friends chatted with each other as usual about the usual things. But all of a sudden, a single knife would clink against a drinking glass. The clinking, that horrible mind-numbing clinking, would permeate across the entire cafeteria. Then every- one knew it was over. The air filled with food in one split second. Not one plate at a time - it was instantaneous bedlam. The walls, ceilings, floors and windows were painted in red spaghetti and lemon yellow pudding pie. Crushed glasses, broken plates and bent silverware were strewn over every inch of the floor. Panicking people slipped and slid out the doors wearing garbage in their hair; their faces smeared with sauce. No one knew where it began or where it would end. Today no one still knows how this food fight tradition got its start, but everyone knew it had to stop. And October 1979 was the first year in the decade of foul tradition to see an end to this “unfun” waste. The foodfights are over at last, but the Halloween tradi- tion will continue with full force. Human washing ma- chines, living bags of jelly beans, creatures of the black lagoon and the entire evil spectrum of witches and spirits will still lurk when that time of year draws nigh, when the dead demand some recognition once again . . by Nancy Kutcher L DiGiacento Last April Browning Hall had a get-together at about 2:15 a.m. around the outside of the building. It was a come-as-you-are party, so to speak, and the entire dorm was required to attend. Browning had another one the week before, and yet another the week before that. The only thing was, nobody wanted to be there. Only in the dorms does one get the thrill of being buzzed out of a sound sleep, and being forced to race around the room to find anything to cover those ugly old jammies you never wanted anyone to see. Yes, firedrills are strictly a dorm related benefit. Remember those long Saturday nights when half the campus population would meet at the willows or the Zoo! And the next day nobody on the hall got up before noon? What a laugh seeing what “that cute guy " looked like with a severe hangover, or " that pretty girl” without any makeup. Yes, only in a dorm can one find these experiences. This kind of candor is what makes the dorm resi- dents one big family. Face it —the bathroom is the place to really get to know each other. Or asking someone to turn down his stereo after hearing " An- other Brick in the Wall” six times in three hours builds rapport. It’s just about impossible to be lonely when you live in a dorm. You can always find someone else who ' s lust as bored as you are on a drizzly Sunday after- noon. Or conversely, on Thursday nights, where else can you walk a mere fifty feet down a hall and come across as many as ten separate parties in one night? D. McCormick Rolling out of bed at 7:45 and still being on time for class is a sure plus to dorm living. Breakfast waiting for you just across the street can ' t be beat, especially when the cleaning up is done for you when you ' re gone. Co-ed showers are always a blast, especially when that someone special from down the hall is singing in the rain in the stall beside you. Yet dorm life isn ' t for everyone all the time. There comes a day when you don’t want your room to be like Grand Central Station, as dorm rooms often are on a friendly hall. There’s a certain amount of growing up that the sheltered dorm life can’t offer. Off campus living can teach important lessons in budgeting, grocery shopping and keeping up a house, that dorm living cannot offer. But it is often said that most of one ' s education exists outside the classroom. So if you have ever had the opportu- nity to live in a commune, that is, to be thrown together in a 12 ' x 12’ concrete hole with some kid who grew up on the other side of the world — whether you like it or not — and you become family and friends forever, you know what I mean when I say dorm life is the best life. by Nancy Kutcher 45 D. McCormick 46 Stereo .... Stereo Walking down a corridor one can hear everthing except the sounds of silence. The stereo is a part of the college student ' s lives just as much as text- books are. The average student’s musical tastes can range from the hard rocking of Van Halen to getting down with disco of Donna Summers. Disco, whether it is a dying fad, has always been an enemy of the students studying for their calcu- lus exams especially when their neighbor cranks it up to 10. A stereo is a sense of pride for the owner. Starting with his first console, the student slowly builds up to a component system consisting of turntable, a high powered receiver (or amp and tuner), cas- sette player, reel to reel and of course massive speakers to handle the power. Once one has the power, they have the tendency to use it; during the day, the night, the morning ... For this stereo owner, CRANK IT means having the power, the fun, and a permanent hearing loss. Another fun event for the system owner is known as the Stereo War. The basic ammunition that may be used can range from a steady beating of the Bee Gees to getting primative by throwing rocks’ greatest - Mick Jaggar. Beware to those who do not have a system, get- ting caught in a Stereo War is most fatal; especial- ly during exams. By William E. Byrnes 47 48 Weekends Are For . . . For those who stay, " weekend” is not a dirty word. Granted, over half the campus residents leave on a particular weekend, but let’s hear it for all the in-staters and out-of-staters who opt to stay. There is something extra special about a Friday afternoon. All week long you could have been dragging, but come Friday afternoon, the most frivolous, carefree feeling can overcome you. You feel like running, dancing and just letting loose. Suddenly evening plans are formulated and excitement replaces the hum drum. Or after a trying week there is nothing better than the thought of peace and tranquility the weekend can bring. Dinner can be eaten at a leisurely pace. The drive to Bonnet or Scarborough doesn’t seem as routine. There may even be a trip to Iggy’s or the new " in” spot, the Reading Room. Pub happy hours can be glorious after a week of exams or papers. Dorm parties are extra special because the people who remained for the weekend come seeking the others who stuck around. You always know there’ll be a crowd at the Willows or Schiller’s. Usually Edwards will have a decent movie. Studying can get done on weekends, but there is more time for procrastination, which makes it less painful. Especially good weekends include the- atre productions, Cup Room entertain- ment, a special occasion dorm, down- the-line, or fraternity party, trips to Provi- dence or Newport. And on an extra great weekend, a weekenders sponsored trip to Boston or New York for a basketball or a football game, or a broadway play can make anyone feel like sticking around. Weekends are for walks down South Road, especially in the fall, for cooking exotic dishes, (like spaghetti for 101), for relieving studying pressure and making the week a bit more bearable. Weekends are for first dates, visits from friends, and catching up on sleep. Weekends are for living, celebrating, re- flecting. Weekends are cherished, not dis- dained, by those who stay at this suitcase ijnive ' Sity. by Kathleen Vanity 49 URI ' s " Image " We’ve been labelled as a party school. Or that school known nationally for its Halloween food fights. Our soccer team has been raped by the press. Sexual harassment has become synonymous with URI to some people who only hear about our school through the media. With all the valuable research, learning, developing, experimenting that URI gears its energy toward, the University has repeatedly suffered bad publicity from the media. This unfavorable representation of our school, of which we are so proud, has elicited many various reactions. Students rallied and petitioned to re- voke some statements made against Coddington Hall residents concerning the sexual assault and rape cases presented by the Providence Journal- Bulletin. Angered students even went so far as giving the Giant Screw Award to the Journal. URI President Frank Newman did his best to lessen the bad raps the University was getting by smoothing over the harmful publicity with more favorable publicity and explanations. Yet there are two important elements to this issue that have been overlooked for the most part. The first is that URI is a state school. People of Rhode Island are supporting this institution with their hard earned tax dollars. They have every right in the world to know what is going on at this school. URI comprises a large segment of this Rhode Island community. What happens here is news to the state. We are an important group. Sexual harassment and partying, as well as worse “scandals” have undoubtedly tainted the cam- puses of Providence College and Brown Universi- ty, for instance. But that is the private business of two private colleges. This leads me to my main point: if URI did not have a sexual harassment problem, or if URI never had a food fight, or if emphasis were placed more strongly on academics rather than alcohol, there is a very good chance we could have avoided the media’s bad presentations of our school. But the truth is, we do have these prob- lems. They are serious obstacles to overcome, and must not be hushed undercover. In retrospect, perhaps URI spokespersons should have admitted we have problems like every other community this size and with this age group. This way we may have gotten some help, rather than scorn. Nobody kicks a troubled victim when it says, " Yes, we have problems. We need help. " Rather, URI denied the press ' allegations, and pretended to have it all the exposed secrets under control. URI got a bad image this year. Perhaps the media are unfair at times. Surely things like this happen on campuses everywhere. But URI is still basi- cally guilty of the accusations. Maybe more attention should have been paid by the mass media on correcting rather than dwell- ing on the existing problems. Shortly after sexual harassment became a clear campus problem, a diversity of plans were put into effect. Dorm security was tightened, with the placement of student dorm monitors and evening managers in all the resident halls, additional locks were installed on room doors, and stricter out- side-door locking hours were enforced. Franternity students volunteered escort services to anyone who called at any time for groups formed to warn and inform women of the reality of rape • how to avoid it, what to do if it happens. Change and improvement take time, and often a situation can be blown out of proportion during that time. Sometimes bad, rather than good news makes the headline. For instance, this year we finally broke the ten year tradition of Halloween food fights that were reported by the media year after year. The accomplishment of making it through the Halloween season with one-hundred percent stu- dent administration cooperation, intellegence, maturity and support, needless to say, never made the papers. URI’s image suffered a severe stoning session from every direction this year. It hurt each of us personally because this was our home for four years or so, and will be a part of our lives after we graduate. It takes exposure, analysis and pressure before problems can be solved. And it a takes a lot of problem solving to produce a top grade institu- by Nancy Kutcher Wwim jUfe Lifelong friendships, the forming of life- time bonds, are the end result of Greek life at URI. The brotherhood and sister- hood of the fourteen fraternities and eight sororities, is a closeness that only those experiencing it can realize. Helping each other in difficult subjects, pulling all nighters together in the so- cial rooms, in addition to enjoying a tremendous social life that Greek life has to offer, are just some of the ways Greeks live. Where else can one exper- ience socials, Greek happy hours and Greek week? The biggest difference between Greeks and other groups, is that Greeks do more together. At URI many of the more involved students are also Greek members. The philanthropic projects such as Paddy Murphy, Derby Week and the annual Bounce-a-thon, as well as all the other ambitious and entertaining events raise money for charities. This is just one type of com- munity service that the Greeks are well noted for. Through the leadership of the Interfra- ternity Council and the Panhellenic Council, URI Greeks are given a source of direction. Representatives of each Greek unit meet to bring all the houses together. 1 54 55 But competition is evident among them during the annual Greek Week. One week a year, the URI Greeks meet together in fair competition. Through the placing in events like chariot races, pie eating, egg toss and beer chug- ging, winners are selected. And a sense of pride develops for one’s house that can only be found in the Greek lifestyle. Each Greek works to establish his or her house as being the best. Being able to work hard and see the outcome of committed work is one of the fulfilling aspects of Greek Life. The biggest event of Greek Week is the famous Greek Sing. Many houses pre- pare long hours of chorus practice and costume -making for the chance to be “Number 1.” Through it all, many Greeks would nev- er trade their houses in for anything else. Greek life at URI is flourishing, as the campus will welcome two new fra- ternities next year. Many years after we graduate, our Greek houses will still be surviving as a source of unity and togetherness at URI. by Cindy Simoneau and Walter Koerting 1 C Slattery 57 7 «l ,o| ' ° ;« »fw£ .1 M W ; A V OJ ■ 3 p»r. } . , ... „ r u r yyy ,vrX ;U -‘fPipy Ky y iK ' - “ ' r . ■ ■ - %, ' c?: ? 7 (e " " " W V , K - ' -e § .

Greenwatd H k jgBsF wwEonrrK m- If you stand in the driveway of the Fine Arts parking lot where it meets Flagg Road, you can get a good view of them coming in. Go there at about quarter of eight in the morning, and listen as the stillness is broken by the buzz of a Toyota Celica, or the rumble of a beat- up Cadillac. It’s the arrival of those cowboys and cowgirls of the cow pasture campus - the commuters. Being married to a car, which is usually a result of commuting, has its rewards and its punishments. Commuters have more freedom of movement than most dormitory or Greek residents have. They can get in their cars and go al- most anywhere anytime they want. This mobility enables commuters to lead a more varied life. They can hold jobs off campus and have friends who are not even affiliated with the Univer- sity. But along with mobility comes a kind of detachment from the campus and the people living there. Commuters usually have no reason to go to the dormitories and dining halls, so they do not exper- ience the kind of camaraderie that is found among those who live among their peers 24 hours a day. Commuters are a distinct group of URI students with a personality all their own. They sometimes have so many things to do off campus that they are prevented from enjoying what the campus has to offer. Many times a commuter has to work when he or she would rather have at- tended some concert, speech or play that took place at night. And often a commuter has to cut a conversation short because he or she has to catch up with a departing carpool. But commuting continues because it ' s often more economical than living on campus or even down-the-line. f 68 One cold day in February of 1978, my Arrow took me to a routine day of classes, the last of which was General Psychology at 1:00 in Chafee. When I walked in Chafee snow flurries were falling and there was talk that we were going to be hit by a big snowstorm. A few minutes into class, the professor warned com- muters that they could skip class and leave early, before the storm got much worse. I was skeptical that the storm would be so bad that I couldn’t drive home, but I left the class anyway, not realizing I was about to be confronted with the worst blizzard to hit New England in decades. When I went outside the snow was falling much hea- vier than it had been before class, and it seemed to accumulate on the ground before my eyes. In the Fine Arts parking lot, cars started as commuters rushed to make it home before the snow got too deep. I drove 30 miles an hour up Routes 138, 2, 4, and 95 and made it to work, just two miles from home. I am convinced I never would have left Kings- ton if the psychology professor hadn ' t told us to leave 40 minutes early. It is a situation like a blizzard that contrasts the campus residents with the commuters. Throughout the blizzard 70 percent of the campus was struck with a rampant epidemic of the flu. At first I envied the dorm and Greek house residents for the conve- nience of being able to walk across the quad to be safe at home, while I had to brave the storm for miles, and subsequently, hours, before I reached home safely. Yet, with, the convenience of home cooked meals, family and health, I found the commuters really enjoyed some benefits the campus residents could not enjoy. The commuter is committed to a sizable journey each day. The car is an inevitable investment that must be made in order to survive as a commuter. I shudder to think of what it might have been like if my car had become undriveable. My entire life style would have been severely disrupted; I would have been like a bird with two broken wings. But that’s the way it is for the commuters. L. Greenwald by David Essex f 69 UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND Extension photos by S. Forman ■air ?5 1 Honor Societies Beta Gamma Sigma Finance Management Association National Honor Society Honor Societies Honor Societies A ' pha Zeta Agriculture Pi Tau Sigma Mechanical Engineering Honor Societies Chemical Engineers Women Engineers -- The Society of Women Engineers is a rela- tively young organization. After being char- tered in 1977 it has grown significantly to a membership of 30 female and male engi- neering students. SWE encourages the interaction of its mem- bers with their peers and or professionals to discuss problems and future objectives. In order to accomplish this purpose SWE sponsors activities such as plant tours, lec- tures, workshops and scholarship opportuni- ties. The present membership found the so- ciety to be beneficial for both social pur- poses and professional development. The American Institute of Chemical Engi- neers is a professional organization encom- passing all aspects of the field. Membership in the student chapter provides students a contact outlet to professionals in the indus- try as well as other student chapters in New England. This year ' s activities included numerous in- dustrial plant tours, local and regional AICHE meetings, a student paper contest involving all New England student chapters, and several social events. This organization is open to all Civil Engi- neering students, and is designed to help prepare them for future careers in this field. This has been done through talks by practic- ing engineers and assorted social activities at which the students were able to meet and talk with civil engineers. ■ 82 i Industrial Engineers The American Institute of Insustrial Engi- neers is a student chapter of a professional organi2ation of industrial engineers. Its ob- jective is to encourage the interaction of students with peers and professionals to dis- cuss problems and new developments in their field. This year, some of the activities they have participated in included a tour of Corning Glass Works ' plant, a guest speaker from Eastman -Kodak, joint dinner meetings with their senior chapter, mechanical industrial engineers ' happy hours at Iggy ' s, and tours for high school students of the industrial engineering building. This organization ' s purpose is to promote professional awareness and fellowship among mechanical engineering students. The group sponsors technical lectures and field trips to facilities of educational interest. Social activities include faculty-student din- ners and annual fall and spring picnics. The Food Science Club is for students inter- ested in learning how to join professional food science groups in nutrition and tech- nology. Through the club, students have learned about food science curriculums at U.R.I. and job opportunities in the food industry. Food Science Club 83 Mechanical Engineers Pre-vet Club Urbanite Society The bustling people, the array of lights, and the cultural sensations are just part of the urban experience. As this country grows, be- coming more complex, there is a greater need for an understanding of the urban hap- penings. This is the reason for the Urbanite Society. Through club activities such as field trips, speakers, and films the group has exposed interested students to the dynamics of the urban life that surrounds them. Pre-Vet Club is a group of students interest- ed in pursuing careers in veterinary medicine and other animal -related fields. At their meetings, the Pre-Vets offer career informa- tion and programs designed to meet the needs of their members. This year ' s activities included movies about animal care, and speakers including local veterinarians, edu- cators, and animal control officials. They also had field trips to animal hospitals and to the New England Primate Center. Every year they sponsor an amateur dog show open to all members of the U.R.I. community. The purpose of the Pre- Medical Forum is to give students an opportunity to learn about the medical health profession and various allied health fields. The lectures and trips this year enhanced the students’ knowledge of the field of medicine, providing stimulation and initiative for them, and simultaneously serving as an aide in members’ chances for admission to professional schools. 84 Pre-med Forum Advertising Club Advertising Club is designed to give stu- dents additional exposure to and practical experience with advertising. The club is re- sponsible for compiling and distributing the U.R.I. calendar and blotter every year. This year they also sponsored speakers, workshops, and field trips to expose students to the advertising field. The Association for Computing Machinery is a professionally orientated organization open to all students interested in the com- puting sciences. The organization is gov- erned by an elected student board. The ACM holds monthly meetings to plan lec- tures, plant tours and other academic and social events. This year ' s URI chapter worked through the national chapter to attract nationally known lecturers to discuss state -of- the - art ad- vances in computer science. The chapter also worked with the Department of Computer Science on their lecture series as well as the computer fair held in April. The Society of Physics Students is a profes- sionally oriented organization. The group holds weekly meetings to plan trips, speak- ers, and activities. This year, URI’s chapter sponsored the An- nual New England Zone Meeting, a film at Edwards, and trips to the Groton submarine base, the Bitter National Magnet Lab at M.I.T., and the Boston Museum of Science. Physics Students ACM anagement Club Investment Club Investment Club is a partnership formed each year with the objective of providing members with opportunities to increase their exposure to common stocks and other in- vestment vehicles. In addition to monitoring their own invest- ments and hearing speakers on stocks and options, club members spent a weekend in New York viewing the stock exchanges, vis- iting Argus Research, and investigating other less financial points of interest. The club completed its first full year of serving as as advisor in the placement of Student Senate funds in the money market, having substantially increased the rate of re- turn realized on these monies. Management Club is an organization open to all business students with at least a sopho- more standing. The club ' s purpose is to ex- pose students to a business environment and to help prepare them for the business world. Through club activities, the members in- crease their knowledge of supervisory, lead- ership, and management techniques. This year, functions included two guest speakers, a tour of Kenyon Piece Dye Works, a Christmas party, and two softball games and picnics with the business faculty. The Risk Management Association is a group of insurance majors and other busi- ness majors interested in the field of insur- ance. The group ' s purpose is to introduce the students to career opportunities within the industry. Several speakers have been in- vited to speak to the association. j Risk Management Assoc. S.A.Ph.A. The Student American Pharmceutical Asso- ciation (SAPhA ) is the National profession- al society of pharmacy students in the Unit- ed States. It is a subdivision of the American Pharmaceutical Association (APhA) which is the national professional society for phar- macists. The function of SAPhA is to en- hance student involvement in the affairs of the APhA in addition to matters concerning the profession at large. The Council of Students is the link between students, faculty, and administration in the College of Pharmacy. It handles all issues concerning academics. Some of the func- tions C.O.S. was involved with this past year were the student faculty feedback session, a petition to increase the number of hours accepted by the Rhode Island Board in rela- tionship to the clerkship externship courses, and proposing alternatives to the transporta- tion costs of the fifth year clinical program. Lambda Kappa Sigma is the national phar- macy sorority. Not to be confused with so- cial sororities, LKS is a professional organi- zation. Their meetings include films, lec- tures, and programs centered around their profession. The group is also concerned with social activity, and there are various regional and national meetings for members to at- tend. Lambda Kappa Sigma Council Of Students International House International House is an organization of international and American students which offers various social, educational, and cross- cultural programs for the campus communi- ty. It strives to develop a better understand- ing of the world’s various cultures and peo- ple. The group also assists in the orientation of foreign students to U.R.I. Their activities this year were highlighted by International Week, which had a variety of international speakers, music, dancing, and food. Members of the C.S.A. organize various ac- tivities and opportunities open to all inter- ested persons. The group sponsors speakers and discussions involving Christian ethics and current church topics. C.S.A. offers so- cial events at the Catholic Center and cultur- al and recreational trips open to all. This year ' s major events included a Hallow- een party, opening semester parties, a Christ - mas party, speakers on Christian topics, and a day trip to Boston. I ; Catholic Student Assoc India Assoc. The India Club ' s membership includes stu- dents and faculty of the Indian community at U.R.I., but is open to anyone interested in sharing the richness of the Indian culture. In keeping with tradition, the club celebrated a few religious and national holidays this year. In addition to such social and dinner gather- ings, the group showed some recent Indian films. With the opening of the new Interna- tional Center in the Union Annex, the club plans to expand its cultural activities. Uhuru SaSa is the students ' organization which represents the concerns and the inter- ests of the minority students at URI. Mem- bership is open to the entire student popula- tion. This year " Black Culture Week " was expanded to the " Uhuru SaSa Cultural Series. " The cultural series brought to URI such people as Gwendolyn Tonge (a Carri- bean Home Economist), Julian Bond (A Georgian State Legislator and civil rights activist), Andrew Young (the former am- bassador to the United Nations), " Black Odyssey " exhibit presented by George Nor- man, a semiformal dance with the band " Starchild " , a Malcom X movie, the comedian Woody Henderson and the " Just Uz " band, disco dances and other social and cultural events. The Portuguese Club, O Lusitano, ' is an organization open to all students interested in the cultures of the Portuguese speaking countries. Their activities deal with Portu- guese customs, dancing, music, cuisine, art, and current events. Portuguese Club Uhuru SaSa Hillel The B ' Nai B ' rith Hillel Foundation is the Jewish campus community at U.R.I. As such, they are made up of and seek to meet the needs of Jewish students and faculty at U.R.I. and interested Jewish residents of the South County area. Hillel is dedicated to pluralistic, multifaceted Judaism. Members include people from all types of backgrounds whose observance patterns run from the very traditional to the nonobservant. Jewish activities go beyound the Strictly religious and have included cul- tural, intellectual, artistic, and national events. The Alternative Food Co-op offers an op- portunity to become involved in the process of providing whole foods (with minimal processing and packaging) at low prices, as an alternative to mass-produced foods of limited nutritional value. Members run the co-op, providing all the necessary labor to keep the " store ' ' well stocked and operating smoothly. Prices are marked up only enough to cover expenses, as the co-op is a non-profit group. Most of the food is purchased in bulk and the members provide their own contain- ers, thus promoting recycling. In addition to serving as a source of low cost whole foods, the coop has offered information informa- tion on the advantages of cooperatives and practical experience and training in coop management. Food Co-op Clearinghouse The U.R.I. Clearinghouse for Volunteers is a campus organization that matches individual interests and skills with the volunteer needs of the state. The CFV is sponsored by the College of Human Science and Services as a service to the entire university community and the state of Rhode Island. Many volunteer opportunities are available through CFV, including some in hospitals, schools, museums, youth and elderly pro- grams, legal and health services. Many pro- grams are designed for individuals interested in volunteering just a few hours each week in South County and surrounding areas. They also help create new placements to meet unique personal or career interests. Little Brother Little Sister makes it possible for underpriviledged children from the com - munity to have a one-to-one relationship with a student from U.R.I. They are Student Senate funded and provide transportation to and from campus for the " littles " and spon- sor parties and trips for the " littles” and " bigs " during the school year. This year ' s activities included a Halloween party, a Christmas party, a trip to Plymouth Plantation, a nature walk at Alton Jones Campus, and a Junior Olympics. LB LS The Campus Health Education and Alcohol Resource Services is a peer service staffed by selected students who receive one semester of credited training. CHEARS provides a system of information and support for stu- dents concerned about the effects of alcohol for themselves or those they care about. A drop-in center, hot line, workshops, coffee houses, classroom lectures and referrals are services offered to the campus community. Speakeasy is the peer counseling organiza- tion on campus involved with the concerns of sexuality. Students, trained in a special section of Nursing 150 (Human Sexuality - 3 credits) staff Speakeasy, answer the hot line, conduct workshops, and teach education sessions. They are there to provide support and open, non- judgemental information. Workshops have included sexualiy and val- ues, birth control information, sex roles and attitudes, sexually transmitted diseases, rape prevention, women ' s health, being male, and quality relationships. SHAC The Student Health Advisory Council is a consumer board which designates student participants in committees, reviews policy, recommends budgets, participates in staff selection and makes recommendations to the Director of Health Services. Five voting members of S.H.A.C. are appointed by the Student Senate and the Graduate Student Association appoints two graduate students. The Women ' s Crisis Center was formed in the fall of 1979 to serve male and female students experiencing crises due to rape, sex- ual assault or sexual harassment. The Center, which is located in Burnside Hall, is an in- formational educational, referral and advo- cacy organization staffed by trained student volunteers. After many meetings and much planning, the Center began materializing during the spring semester when a Burnside Hall study lounge was renovated and a budget was ap- proved by the Student Senate. The first training program was held in and the center will open to serve students in September 1980. Women’s Crisis Center ROTC The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps Program offers individuals an opportunity to participate in a phase of college life that is both enriching academically and challenging physically and mentally. Army ROTC has been an integral part of the University since 1894, and has contributed more than 1700 officers to the service of the country. The U.R.I. ROTC Program is conducted on an informal basis with particular attention devoted to the individual desires and career objectives of the cadets. The program pre- pares students for career opportunities, both military and civilian, by offering theoretical and practical training in management, lead- ership, logistics, law, history, group dyna- mics, and organizational techniques. Also, adventure training such as rappelling, orien- teering, canoeing, and marksmanship is available. Cadets have the option of active military duty or reserve component duty in conjunc- tion with their civilian careers. Perspective is a Student Senate funded annu- al magazine commited to coordinating and publishing the creative art of U.R.I. The fall semester is devoted primarily to the recruit- ment of staff members for the literary, graphics, and photography staffs. Energy is also focused on advertising for submissions. At weekly meetings, the staff and editors review possible submissions for publication, which begins in the spring semester. The title, number of issues, quality, and theme of the magazine vary from year to year as do officers and staff members. Perspective is free to U.R.I. students. Perspective People usually call the U.R.I. student daily newspaper the Good 5 t Cigar. Some just call it the Cigar, or even the Good 5$ Misquote. Or the campus birdcage liner, fishwrapper or a number of other things that shouldn ' t be printed in this book. But for the forty or so people who work at the paper, putting in time at the Cigar has become a perfectly suitable excuse for not doing the homework that was assigned last week, the term paper that you have to com - plete before the end of the semester because you took an incomplete last semester, or even something as mundane as doing your laundry. But beyond that, the Cigar has been an on- going experiment in journalism. Can a news- paper — that will hopefully spawn future Pulitzer Prize winners-always operate on the brink of virtual disaster? The Cigar fights nightly to stretch the faded typewriter rib- bons, the empty bottles of rubber cement, and the last inches of Almac ' s discount tape. Nightly, the staff contends with the cranky drivers who pilot a cantankerous van to the outer space near Norwich, Connecticut where the tabloid is printed and return the 8500 Cigars to the sleeping campus. And then every morning, that Cigar Forty have their ears cocked attentively at break- fast to hear for the usually very vocal criti- cisms the paper receives. If any can finish their bowl of Life cereal without spying a single utterance of displeasure, that Cigar staffer is in an orgasmic state the rest of the day. Oh, there have been many times that the Cigar has had to eat humble pie and the F.ditor in Chief would then emerge from his cubicle office and mope to one of the few classes he ' d attend. But, all in all, the Cigar, is the best student daily newspaper at U.R.I. There ' s no dispute to that. If nothing else, the Cigar is what got many through their Rojo’s runny scrambled eggs or Butterfield’s super -absorbant pancakes. The Good 5 t wraps up another year with their old slogan, " Where there ' s smoke, there’s Cigar.” 95 Good Cigar Gazette The 1979-1980 academic year was a miles- tone in the brief history of Great Swamp Gazette. This was the year that the last remaining original staff member handed the reigns over to a new group of editors, thus establishing the Gazette as a legitimate addition to the media at U.R.I. Three articles that appeared in the Gazette this year won journalism awards in the Soci- ety of Professional Journalist ' s Northeast re- gion competition. The Gazette hopes to continue in their tradi- tion of in-depth, investigative journalism in the years ahead. In addition to investigative reporting, the Gazette publishes feature stories, satire, po- etry, short stories, music reviews, columns of opinion, photography, and art work. Now firmly established on campus, Great Swamp Gazette, U.R.I. ' s semi-monthly news and feature magazine, will strive to become an even more important part of the universi- ty community in the coming years. 96 WRIU Radio consists of two distinct stu- dent operated stations broadcasting from six studios on the third floor of the Memorial Union with over $100,000 worth of profes- sional equipment. It is the only daily operat- ing, year round organization funded by the students at URI. WRIU 580 AM is a commercial carrier cur- rent operation which began broadcasting in 1939 and is currently one of the country ' s largest. The signal is fed to all 19 dorms by phone lines to mini transmitters from 7 am to midnight every day. The mixed musical format includes album oriented rock and jazz plus oldies. WRIU 90.3 FM Stereo is Rhode Island ' s largest educational noncommercial station. The listening audience even extends beyond the state into Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York. Since it is a public station, the programming includes radio drama and live studio concerts, plus many more educa- tional shows with variations or rock, jazz, classical and folk music. This station broad - casts from 5 pm to 2 am each day. WRIU FM was 10 watts from 1964 to 1978. It has since expanded to 3700 watts. The News Department is vital to both sta- tions. Students with an interest in journalism are aided by the Associated Press Wire and its actuality service. A weekly half-hour public affairs interview program is also part of this department. The Sports Department draws many listeners as the staff travels around the country with the Ram ' s football and basketball teams. The staff provides play by play action along with pre and post game shows plus inter- views with the coaches. WRIU’s other departments are Production, Engineering, Business and Public Relations. In this past year there were 115 staffers in- volved but the growth period constantly continues as both stations approach broad- casting 24 hours a day. 97 WRIU Sailing For years and years now, the faculty of this university have sought out a way to motivate students toward higher learning. Yet for just as many years, the Sailing Club has secretly held the answer to stimulating the dehy- drated’ minds of many students an URI: " Just add water. " To the outsider, it may very well have ap- peared that the members of the club have had water on the brain. Why, sailing during November snow storms, or around minia- ture icebergs (berger bits?) as early as March 1 can hardly be considered condusive to higher learning; yet people still flocked to Salt Pond shores in all but the worst weather during the spring and fall to experiment with their nautical prowess. The Sailing Club has had a great deal to offer to anyone with an interest in sailing. For the experienced sailor, the well maintained fleet of 17 boats of four popular classes have provided a wonderful escape. For the begin- ner, the Sailing Club offers PED 1051, a one credit course in basic seamanship and boat handling. The club is proud of the fact that they have never lost a student. In fact, there has never been a student who has come away from the class not knowing how to sail (although certain instructors have been known to turn prematurely gray due to some of the more ' advanced ' maneuvers per- formed by students). This year the club also provided many other activities for members, including a night sail, the " sorta-kind-of ' regatta, a strike cruise to Martha’s Vinyard and Nantucket, and mov- ies during the off season. Horsemen’s The Horsemen ' s Club members are respon- sible for the care and cleaning of the eleven horses at the U.R.I. stables. In return, club members enjoy the use of the horses for weekend riding and trail rides as well as other activities. Construction of the U.R.I. stables at Peck- ham farm was accomplished in 1972 in order to house the horses necessary for instruction of students. In 1978 two pastures, t otalling about four acres, were fenced in to allow the horses exercise and grazing during the day. The horses, with two exceptions, are leased from private owners, most of whom are U.R.I. students. The university pays for feed and foot care, while veterinary care is pro- vided by a member of the Animal Pathology Department. Weekenders brought whales, sea and the en- vironment to Edwards Auditorium for a lec - ture and slide presentation given by Green- peace, an organization based in California and dedicated to the protection of our ocean world. Homecoming wasn’t just another semi -for- mal ... it was the Marble House Mansion Semi -Formal Dance Extravaganza in New- port and the magic of the night lingered for many days to follow. The " sell-out” dancing continued as Week- enders boogied to music ranging from southern rock and roll to swing and jazz to new wave with the Wild Turkey Band, B. Willie Smith and the Beagles. Finally, the stereos started blaring, the fris- bees flying and students knew that spring was here. For Spring Weekend, Weekenders created a One Ton Sundae for all of URI to consume happily! Weekenders - constantly bringing URI fine entertainment on the weekends! t Weekender’s 99 Student Senate Controversy and crisis hit the Student Senate from day one of this year with the disruptive faculty strike and cancellation of classes. They organized an effective protest rally that sent 10 bus loads of angry students to the State House in Providence to meet with the Governor who eventually stepped in and put an end to the strike. The Senate tried to bring student input into decisions on the calendar, increased campus security and academic policy changes, but they faced obstacles and uncooperative fac- ulty members and administrators. The Senate sponsored meetings in the Union ballroom to increase student involvement. ■ Faculty and administrators were invited to speak and and take questions from the audi- ence on their roles within the University. The Student Interest Organization, a group of student advocates, continued to lobby at the State House and were successful in con- veying students opinions on proposed legis- lation and URI ' s budget. The Senate ' s Great American Library Fun- draiser raised over $5000 for new library books and brought legislators attention to URI ' s needs for academic capital. The legis- lators responded by increasing appropri- ations to the library and restoring money to URI’s budget that had been cut by the Gov- ernor. The Senate ' s Executive Committee met with Governor Garrahy in his office and asked for a continued strong financial commitment to Rhode Island ' s only state University. A committee on student employment and an ORL advisory committee were formed to increase student input in those areas. The Senate also continued to serve as con- troller of the Student Activities Tax; $310 thousand per year used to sponsor student organizations and activities. This year the Senate approved expansion grants to the Student Video Center and Cellar Sights and Sounds to upgrade their facilities for student use. All in all, it was a productive year for the Student Senate. They had problems amongst themselves and in trying to get their mes- sages across, but managed to accomplish most of their goals. IFC Intrafraternity Council ' s purpose is to co- ordinate and unify the 15 fraternities on campus. The council is made up of six ex- ecutive members and one representative of each fraternity. Services and programs pro- vided by the council during the 1979-1980 academic year were as follows: Greek Week, a leadership conference, a campus escort ser- vice, sending summer brochures to all fresh- men, sponsoring the freshman record, and publishing a monthly Greek newsletter. Among the issues addressed by the council this year were the unfair university subsidies to the residence halls, issues on hazing, aca- demic programs in houses, expansion of the Greek system of construction of new houses, and improved relations with the town coun- cil concerning liquor licenses for social functions. The IFC works closely with the Panhellenic Association and other organizations on Cam- pus. The Panhellenic Association is comprised of eight nationally affiliated sororities, which all work together to promote harmony among sorority women on campus. Panhel is the organization where representa- tives from each sorority get together bi- weekly to discuss and work toward enriching the Greek system. The main purpose of Pan- hel is to serve as a governing body of soror- ity women which oversees judicial and fi- nancial matters. They also organize social events, national activities, and philanthropic projects. While working with IFC very closely, this year ' s major activities included a blood drive, Greek Week, Winter Outrageous Week Pep Rally, and the Greek leadership conference. Panhel 101 Older Students Assoc. Older Students Association consists of un- dergraduates who, because of age of life experiences, feel " non -traditional. " The as- sociation helps to integrate these students into university life by offering peer support and help with individual problems. Members also work to represent the interests of older students in campus issues. With the cooperation of the Student Rela- tions Office, OSA has sponsored luncheon - speaker programs, study skills and personal growth workshops, cultural events, coffee hours, and pot luck suppers. The Commuter Association supplies infor- mation and activities for commuters. The group provides members with lockers, shower facilities, and a carpool matching service. Activities this year included daytime movies, speakers, theatrics, and musical per- formances in the Memorial Union. i Commuter Association Handcrafter’s Club The Handcrafter’s Club is a new organiza- tion designed to develop people ' s present talents and to introduce them to new hand - crafts. This year the crafts included pottery, basketry, silk screening, and quilting, with demonstrations from local artists. Classes were also made available to those desiring to pursue a particular craft. The Model United Nations is an educational group open to all URI students. From Sep- tember to April the club prepares itself, both financially and intellectually, for the national convention at the U.N. in New York. Each year colleges from all over the country select and study a country from around the world and represent it at this conference. At the conference, the " nations " gather and simulate a U.N. convention. The Mushroom Coffeehouse was open Tuesday and Wednesday nights of spring semester, offering live musical entertain- ment. Volunteer students ran the relaxing, social gathering place in the basement of Barlow Hall. Snacks and non-alcoholic bev- erages were sold to defray advertising and entertainment costs. Model United Nations SEC The Student Entertainment Committe provides entertainment in the form of major events for the U.R.I. student body. Student members are totally in- volved in the talent selection process and all phases of concert production. This year’s concerts included Amer- ica, Steve Forbert, Jefferson Starship, Monteith and Rand, The Flying Kara- mazov Brothers, Dave Mason. Stovall Brown Band, The Neighborhoods, and a performance of Godspell. They end- ed the year off with Mark Black. Papa John Creach, John Hall, and the Pou- sette Dart Band for Spring Weekend, and the annual Blue Grass Festival. The Outing Club exists to promote the safe and intelligent use of the outdoors for ac- tivities such as backpacking, rock climbing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking, canoe- ing, and bicycle touring, to name a few. Trips taken by the club range from begin- ner ' s instruction to advanced trips for the hard core enthusiasts. This year ' s outings included rock climbing in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, bike trips and canoeing in southern Rhode Island, and two rather chilly trips to Mount Wash- ington. Lilley The purpose of the Student Lecture Series is to enhance the student ' s educational exper- ience by presenting informative speakers on important current topics. SLS also sponsors speakers from different media who are of major interest to the U.R.I. student body. This year ' s presentations included Andrew Young, Simon Wiesenthal, Billy Martin, Howard K. Smith, and Tom Jackson. S.L.S. Union Board L. Greenwald Memorial Union Board of Directors, alias Union Board, is the student organization that coordinates programming and oper- ations within the Memorial Union. The board as a whole makes decisions concern- ing the Memorial Union in the best interest of the entire student body. Some of the operational tasks of the board this year concerned the building and grounds renovations, commemoration of the twenty fifth anniversary of the Union, and allocation of more space to student activi- ties. There were many events programmed this year. Copa II, the Bermuda trip, and a Hal- loween dance were just a few. There were also many successful films, trips, dances, and even a Cabaret and fashion show. 106 Wildlife Society The Wildlife Society is an organization de- voted to the preservation and conservation of nature ' s wildlife and other resources. Meetings consist of guest speakers for sub- jects concerned with wildlife. Wildlife ap- preciation has included fun events such as back packing, horse back riding, cross coun- try skiing and bicycling. Conservation pro- jects are also undertaken. The year was high - lighted by a regional wildlife conclave in which a number of colleges socialized and competed on the subject of wildlife. The society has proved to be a rewarding exper- ience for everyone involved. The Student Video Center is a student -run Senate -funded organization whose purpose is to instruct and provide experience to the student body in the field of video communi- cations. The Center offers training on porta- ble video tape equipment, editing, television productions, and on-air experience for those interested in television broadcasting. In the past year the Video Center broadcast- ed programming weekly throughout the Memorial Union, ranging from " Home- Grown,” in-house productions to full- length feature movies to its own " Midweek Review " weekly news program. SVC Ombudsman Dance Co. The URI Dance Company and the Appren- tice Dance Troupe present a variety of excit- ing dance events each year. Most recently, the Dance Company was comprised of ten talented members and the Apprentice Dance Troupe consisted of 30 dedicated dancers. In the past year the company ' s performances included their annual spring performance and three benefit shows in the Memorial Union. The Ombudsman Office saw a lot of action this year. An estimated 50% increase over last year ' s total number of complaints was recorded. Communications were expanded through group presentations, radio and newspaper ads, video coverage, and partici- pation at gripe forums, organizational fairs, and Family Day. Also, legislative attempts to further protect the academic rights of stu- dents were successfully taken through the initial stages. A good year for the Ombuds- man was marked by over 90% of the com- plaints received being satisfactorily reme- died. The Rhode Island Coalition Against Regis- tration and the draft was formed in February of 1980 in reaction to President Carter ' s pro- posed reinstatement of mandatory registra- tion for 18 to 20 year olds. RICARD action came to a climax with an April rally on the quad which attracted an estimated crowd of 600 persons with live music and speakers. The intended purpose of the coalition was to educate URI students about the possible effects of military in- volvement and to provide a counter force to the mass media ' s increasingly patriotic pro- paganda. R.I.C.A.R.D. The Rhode Island Public Interest Research Group is made up of students who fund and control their own organization. RIPIRG al- lows these students to pursue constructive social change for Rhode Island. Utilizing RIPIRG ' s resources with the assis- tance of their full time professional staff person, work study students, students re- ceiving independent study credit, and volun- teers from the student body, faculty, and the community have accomplished these pro- jects and more: - Paper recycling in over 30 campus loca- tions; - Students fighting for th Bottle Bill legisla- tion in Rhode Island; - Work toward the development of a U.R.I. Shuttle Bus system; - A Renter ' s Guide that helps renters to learn about their legal rights and responsibil- ities; - And a Quantitative Surcharge Study, which looked at whether or not Rhode Island shoppers were being deceived. J. Grady Tae Kwon Do Tae Kwon Do is a Martial Art used for self-defense. The Korean words mean the art of smashing with hands and feet. The Tae Kwon Do Club meets once a week for two hours. This year was the first year that an intercollegiate tournament was organized with the Roger Williams College Club and the Providence College Club. The members of the club train both their minds and their bodies with strict discipline to achieve self-control. They also strive for perseverence, modesty and an indomitable spirit. A great deal of self-confidence is gained through practicing Tae Kwon Do and learning self-defense. The purpose of the UR1 Tour Guides is to show visitors around the campus, explaining aspects of campus life and the physical set up of the campus. The tours appeal mostly to potential students and their parents. The tours are informal and based on the interests of those on the tour. The URI Tour Guides are proud of their university and hope to show others all the value they have derived in attending the school. The Tour Guides are often called upon to participate in special activities such as visits from special groups, potential donors, pro- spective employees and other dignitaries who wish to be personally escorted throughout the campus. This year the Tour Guides sponsored the " I Luv URI " button campaign of which the funds were designat- ed to go to the UR I Library and for the purchase of video equipment for the new URI Information Center. no Tour Guides saasei 114 A lot of attention focuses on fraternities and sororities during a special week in mid-April known to the campus community as " Greek Week. " It ' s filled with a lot of fun and games, spirit and laughter, friendship and cohesiveness. The studying goes to the side - lines while the partying takes the field. But journey back fellow Greeks and remember the experiences from the rest of these last nine months. How about moving in on Labor Day week- end. All of the recently brotherized sister- ized, pledges and borders living in, for the first time, their new abode. Phi Psi ' s block party. And then the homework starts to pile up. Before you know it, RUSH! — when all Greeks give their greatest effort to show propective pledges that their house IS THF. BEST! Rush seems endless, but passes all too quickly. HOMECOMING — Alumini return to see " how the old place is coming along without them. " And of course the football game with all that BEER! ... Oh my head is still ringing! November brings BIDS, the result of rush. All the new pledges begin to learn the ropes and rules of their respective houses. Natural- ly with bids there must be some celebration 116 . . Sorority Bids night — fix-ups galore, and then bolting galore! A definite wild night for all! Things quiet down for the winter except for the parties and socials which continue throughout the year. But let us not leave out one really important, yet quite often unno- ticed, thing that separates the Greeks from all others — the philanthropic events. These are the many different charitable deeds which individual houses do on their own in order to raise money for a particular charity. These events, which vary in style consider- ably, are very demanding in time and energy. Yet we all seem to have a great time doing them. Who could forget Fiji ' s Run for Cys- tic Fibrosis, Phi Psi ' s Bounce-a-thon for the American Cancer Society, Theta Chi ' s Paddy Murphy Week and many other wild and crazy times . . . Well, as stated in the beginning, Greek Week is a very special time. There are thrill- ing competitions during the tug-of-wars, beer chugs, and tricycle races . . Tense moments come with the chariot presentation . . . And the most exciting and unified feel- ings are brought out in Greek Sing Night. It certianly is a memorable week, and it is very easy to see why Greek Week often overshadows the rest of a very active school year for members of fraternities and sorori- by Larry Ginsberg W. Koerting 7 118 119 1 Arts Council The U.R.I. Arts Council was estab- lished 1 8 years ago by the university president for the purpose of sponsor- ing, supporting and promoting a wide range of professio nal attractions en- compassing events in the fine arts and other media to serve the needs of students, faculty, and the communi- ty-at-large, with primary attention being given to the cultural and aes- thetic development of U.R.I. students. In the last few years a number of ‘firsts ' have been initiated, including the annual U.R.I. Jazz Festival which has featured such notables as Woody Herman, Marian McPartland, Teddy Wilson, Carmen McRae, Herbie Mann, and the Brubeck Brothers; the establishment of dance residencies, which have featured nationally know companies, such as Kathryn Posin, Bill Evans, and Gus Solomon; and the development of a total summer arts, activities, and entertainment pro- gram which runs the gamut from disco to ballet, bluegrass to chamber and summer stock to opera. URI Theatre 1979-80 The 1 979-80 season embodied a shift of emphasis in the Theatre Depart- ment ' s program. In addition to re- vamping the academic curriculum, the Department’s choice of material reflected an attempt to tie its class- room work more closely into its pro- duction efforts, a concept that will be developed still further next season. The Theatre Department presented a wide variety of stage offerings this year in spaces ranging from the 550 seat Robert E. Will Theatre to a 40 seat converted classroom. The season began with David Eliet, a guest artist from Trinity Square Repertory Com- pany directing Anton Chekhov ' s “The Three Sisters. " Conceived as a ' work- in-progress, ' theatre students gained rich experience from dealing with the challenge of sustained characteriza- tions in Chekhovian realism. Closing out the fall semester, was the bawdy medieval musical, “Boccaccio. ” Drawn from the ribald tales of the “Decameron, " “ Boccaccio " is an up- lifting reaffirmation of life set amidst plague ravaged Florence. Di- rected by Broadway actress dancer Carol Flemming and designed with proper oppulence by Ken Holamon, “Boccaccio” exhibited the full pro- duction potential of the theatre de- partment. Developed entirely with an acting class, Kimber Wheelock directed an all student production of August Strindberg’s classic one act play, “Miss Julie. " Presented in March in the black box J Studio, “ Miss Julie " was a strong and moving piece. The final department offering was a madcap evening of cabaret entertain- ment called " Little Things We Do Upon the Sly. " The material in the cabaret was compiled by the cast un- der the expert supervision of Director Judith Swift and Musical Director- Arranger Charles Cotone. The audi- ence sat at gingham clothed tables while imbiding their self -prov ided beverages. Enthusiastically received and sold out for all six performances, " Little Things We Do Upon the Sly " afforded a marvelous showcase for the many and varied talents of the stu- dents. In addition, theatre student directors and staffs mounted splendid produc- tions of “You ' re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, " a program of three one act plays, and two short pieces, “The Orb " and “ The Tridget of Greva. ” 128 129 Music U.R.I. Music Department had an ex- panded list of performing groups this year. For singers who like large numbers, there was Ward Abusamra ' s Universi- ty Chorus, which performed large choral works (Haydn’s Creation and Cherubini ' s Requiem ) with the ac- companiment of orchestra, an organ, and wind ensemble. For those who preferred a smaller g roup, there was Professor Abusamra ' s Concert Choir, or for more intimate music there was the Madrigal Singers under the direc- tion of Stephen Moore. For choreo- graphed singing, Mark Colozzi direct- ed the Swing Singers, and Mary Langdon ' s ‘‘Schumann Abend " was the outlet for soloists and groups of soloists. That Ram Band, under the direction of Gene Pollart, provided sparkling shows for football games. Also under Professor Pollart ' s direction were the newly created Concert Band and the select Wind Ensemble. Smaller in- strumental groups included brass, woodwind, and percussion ensembles. For jazz buffs, there were two large jazz ensembles, led part of the year by Hal Crook then by Art Motycka. For orchestra lovers, Joseph Ceo directed the Symphony Orchestra, which fea- tured the world premiere of Geoffrey Gibbs ‘‘Captree. ” Dr. Ceo also had a more select group in his Chamber Or- chestra. Also, for string instruments there were various chamber music groups under the direction of John Dempsey. All in all. Music department provided numerous concerts and recitals, in- cluding several faculty and guest con- certs. Special mention this year goes to the Rhode Island String Quartet, which got very favorable reviews in their New York debut. S. Dorman J DeWaele L.

The Rams finished at 1-9-1, the most losses a URI football team has ever had. With the loss of star quarterback Steve Tosches, the Rams had a diffi- cult position to fill. Coach Bob Griffin expected sophomore Greg Meyer to fill the shoes, but Meyer was unable to respond. Freshmen Doug Lewis and Terry Lynch played well, but their in- experience in key situations hurt the Rams. The first game of the season was on September 8th. The opponents were the University of Delaware, probably one of the two toughest teams the Rams would face in the ' 79 campaign. Though the final score was 34-14, URI played much better than the score in- dicates. Even after that loss, many Rhody fans had great expectations for the games ahead. When URI traveled to take on Northeastern University, everyone ex- pected the Rams to chalk up their first win. Unfortunately. Northeastern had other plans. Northeastern exploded for 17 second half point, stunning the Rams 17-7. Suddenly, the URI coaching staff and players sensed that something was wrong. Their thoughts were reinforced when the Rams were trounced the following week by Holy Cross 35-6. Things con- tinued to go wrong for the Rams as they met Brown University in Provi- dence. The final was 31-13 and the Rams record dropped to 04. Homecoming day was filled with cele- bration as URI got its first win of the season by defeating Maine IOO. The Rams defense was outstanding and suddenly there was life for the Rams. The Rams took on the UMass Minute- men and played admirably. Massachu- setts, the Yankee Conference winner in 1978, had a difficult time putting away the stubborn Rams. The final was 24-0 and URI ' s record dropped to 1-5. Boston University was next on the schedule. Due to an outstanding defen- sive effort by URI, BU was only able tc get seven points the entire game. Bui the Terriers won, 7-0 ... . URI’s next game was against The Uni- versity of New Hampshire. After two consecutive weeks of eight scoreless quarters, the Rams got on the board. It was not nearly enough as UNH won the game 21-6. On November 6th, URI took on the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Meade Field. The Rams led the whole game, but a last second field goal forced the Rams to settle for a 24- 24 deadlock. With a record of 1-7-1, the Rams had two games remaining on their sched- ule. The Rams played well in both con- tests, but lost to UConn 10-9 and to Florida A M 16-6. The Florida ASM game was a fitting end to a disappointing season, in which the Rams gave everything they had in holding the IAA Conference champions of 1978 to only 16 points. It was a tough year for the Rams, but through all the tears of a frustrating season there was still a ray of hope for the future. by Alan Kaplan 139 — jjw » ; ■ ’ i warwaiiBB IL3 N t ffr ABM , ffiln rli Bp cm ’«I S6 AS, i gaCr i 1 jjHMj I AjEWJI fl pbF % -i: )| fl S|. • ' " a 5 - i 5 :. 5 " -•• 3 gpgy r .

The cook possessed the perfect touch that was needed to coax the product as it cooked and devel- oped. The eggs and the milk and the formula all molded to form the most successful product the URI campus has had the priviledge to test out. After a disappointing 6-4-5 season in 1978 the members of the URI soccer team knew it was time to settle down and use the natural talent with which they were blessed. Last year it all came together. Eye some of these accomplishments: After being ranked 7 nationally half way through the season, the team finished with a 14-4-1 record and a final ranking of ninth in the country. The team clob- bered Brown 8-3 for the first time in its history. It went to the NCAA quar- ter finals before bowing to Columbia 5- I. It beat UConn twice, once in quadru- ple overtime in the opening round of the NCAA’s. There are endless reasons why last year’s soccer team reached its pinna- cle. Led by Yankee Conference scoring champ Lennie Mercurio. the booters displayed an offense that dumbfound- ed Maine 10- 1 . Brown 8-3. and Holy Cross 12-1. Mercurio was supported by forwards Gillian King. Rui Gaetano and mid- fielder Jose Rico. These players, along with the six other men on the field gave the Rams the scoring punch nec- essary to be a contender. But as the saying goes, ' the best of- fense is a good defense.’ and that the Rams had. Anchoring the D were vet- eran fullbacks John Paruch and Kevin Murphy. Both men got strong support from Greg Mancuso and John Bru- bacher. Goaltender Gonzalo Rico had a strong second half of the season. And while the scene was a happy one last year, this season should be marked with much of the same excitement. Some of the questions surround the loss of seniors Gillian King, John Par- uch and the Rico brothers. But if past recruitment records are indicative of the crop of freshmen that will turn up at the Ram camp for this season, there should be added depth to an already strong cast of talented players. By Brian Ethier e Swimming The URI men’s swim team finished the year with a 6-6 mark. This resulted in a promising seventh place finish in New England, out of 30 schools, and fourth in the Yankee Conference. The year was highlighted by the shat- tering of three school records. The new school marks were established by Jim Catnach, in the 200 freestyle) Ray Palmer, in the 500 freestyle) and Peter Vetter, 1,650 freestyle.

Next season will be the first time URI teams will compete in the Eastern Eight . . .

With the loss of only two start- ers (Chatman and Nelson) the Rams were going to have another great year like 1978-79. But then it happened. Some people called it a tragedy. Sly Williams an- nounced that he was going hardship. Williams was picked in the first round by the New York Knicks. Rhody still had Jimmy Wright coming back, and Roland Houston was to fill in the middle for Kraft. The problem was still there, who was going to fill the other forward spot? Gilson DeJesus had one year of college ball behind him and seemed the likely candidate for the job. And of course the backcourt would have Nicky Johnson and Kevin Whit- ing. Johnson would be the point guard and Whiting would fill the shoes of John Nelson with his long range bombs. Rhody surprised everyone with a con- vincing 74-63 victory over Corny Thompson and the Huskies of Con- necticut. The Rams went on to win their next five games, bringing their record to 8-2. The biggest wins of that six game stretch came during Christmas break in the Milwaukee Classic. The Rams did away with Fairfield in the first round and went against Marquette in the finals. The Warriors had won the title for the past 12 years. Before 10,000 people, little Rhody held on to bring the title home to URI. The last win in that streak came against ECAC-south champions Old Dominion. The Rams good fortune came to a quick end. The Rams lost five straight games starting with Syracuse and end- ing with Boston University. The Rams broke out of the losing streak with three straight wins over UMass. Robert Morris and UNH. Their Now it was time to avenge an early season loss to the arch rival Fiars of Providence College. In the first meet- ing the Friars pounded the Rams 74-59. This time the Rams turned the tables on PC. Behind 17 points from Wright and 14 from Phil Kydd, the Rams scored a convincing 74-58 victory. The Rams dropped their first and only overtime game to St. Joe’s of Pennsyl- vania, 65-59. Then managed to slip by a slow moving Brown University squad 71-67. In the final game against Detroit, the Rams almost pulled off an upset behind Pappy Owens’ 22 points. But Detroit hung on for a 72-67 win. From Detroit it was back to Rhode Is- land and a short wait for the ECAC playoffs. URI drew Canisius College in the first round. Wright and Johnson paved the way for the Rams as they trounced Canisius and advanced to the semi-final round in Portland. Maine. It was in Portland that the Rams Kraft did some fast recruiting in the off season and pulled in three players. Horace " Pappy " Owens, Marc Upshaw and John Monk. The season started out as everyone had expected. The Rams picked up two wins in Keaney over Scamton and Brown University. Rhody then traveled out west and dropped two games to nationally ranked Washington St. and Weber St. record was now 11-7. The Rams then embarked on an important five game series. It was getting close to tourna- ment time. The Rams dropped three straight to St. John’s, South Carolina and LaSalle. Wright hit for a career high in the eight point loss to LaSalle. Then at the Hartford Civic Center, the Rams man- aged to hang on and beat the Huskies of UConn 68-65. season ended as Boston University dashed the Cinderella hopes out of lit- tle Rhody. This year marked the third straight year that the Rams had made it to the ECAC playoffs. It was also the third straight year that URI has won 15 or more games. And the win over Mar- quette was the forth title in five years for the Rams. by Dave Rocce 158 ffH " ft a 1 ' i pSa m r ? 1 j|| ■ i H [VI " . 4M ' — — The URI Rugby team once again had a very prosperous season. The club had an over all record of 17-6 and proved to be one of the toughest teams in New England. The URI squad has enjoyed the distinction of being top contend- ers for the past few years. Some of the high point of the season came when URI finished first in a field of 20 teams in the New York Sevens Tournament. URI also had a good show- ing in the College Tournament, finish- ing second. In the prestigious New England Tournament URI made it to the semi-finals, finishing an overall fourth out of 35 teams. Co-Captains John Taglienti and Mike Swistack played well as season in lead- ing the Rams. Other top performers were senior back Bobby Reed, who in his fourth season developed into one of the best backs in New England. Bob Trotta. Rich White, Chuck Kemp and Lenny Martineau all contributed key performances. URI is not only respected for being a tough teams on the field. They are equally known for their post game ac- tivity. Rugby players enjoy their brew. After every game it is somewhat a tra- dition for the host team to provide kegs of beer. All of the bumps and bruises don ' t feel as bad when you know there is a frosty, cold one wait- ing for you on the sidelines. by Joe Douglas Men ' s Track , n jg y m 1 fcl pKjjR jE-SC - — Womens Track she will be running against some of the best in the country. The womens track team proved to be a New England powerhouse once again this year. The Wram runners finished the out- door season with an incredible 8-0 re- cord, extending their unbeaten string to 25 consecutive wins over a two year peri- od in dual meet competition. Another standout in the New England 1 was Ann Murrock, as she captured a se ond place finish in the 400-meter hurdle; The Wrams relay teams also fared well i: the competition. The Wrams were one of the teams fa- vored to win the New England Champion- ship. But when all the scoring was tallied, the Wrams managed a respectable sec- ond place finish behind a strong Brown University team. Coach Lauren Anderson is confident that her athletes will continue to be fierce competitors as the team is very young and also has great depth. The entire team will be back next year, with the exception of Douglas who will be graduating. Doug- las, however, will remain on the scene as assistant coach next season. Senior captain Patti Douglas retained her title as New England champ in the 800- meter run. Douglas, a stand out during her four years at URI, will be ending her career at the women’s nationals, where by Joe Douglas 1 k XcffiViyL | I [ V 1 fgTr W I ft Kftim n 1 I - — I Volleyball ri| ■ iom I wf c ' 1 NT JJ| 1 1 11 Fib P t ■ l?if I 1 - " ' Ztl i 1 Pr ! -x L - KM Women ' s Lacrosse Lacrosse f WK M J bkb s l 1 iiiiii lliSISl liffST- v ftTS ; SptfS3 _ SEkrl rvj t Ai , 1 Baseball With nine lettermen returning from the previous year. Ram baseball coach John Norris knew he would have a strong team in 1980. Norris set his pre- season goals at a winning record, a playoff berth and a possible Yankee Conference championship. The Rams came through in fine fashion over the second half of the season to finish with a 15-13 record and reach Norris’ first goal. The playoffs and conference chapionship went by the boards, however, to mar an otherwise successful! season. URI got off to a slow start, winning only five of their first 14 games. One run games yvere their downfall, as they dropped four of the five such games they were involved in. According to Norris, the Rams just weren’t getting the key hits when they needed them. A seven game southern swing opened the season for Rhody. The Rams picked up three wins on the tour, in- cluding a doubleheader sweep of the nationally ranked University of Dela- ware. Another brightspot of the trip south was a no-hitter tossed by Jeff Folkins against Virginia Common- wealth University- Up North, it wasn’t until the second half of the year that the Rams caught fire. URI went 10-4 over that strech, and established themselves as one of the hottest teams in New England. Un- fortunately the early losses eliminated any chance of a conference champion- ship. Three straight doubleheader sweeps ended the year on a good note and gave Norris reason to believe that his squad would recieve a playoff bid. Despite the final disappointment of not being selected, Norris felt that the team did accomplish a lot this season. Not only did they compile a winning record, but they finished with a .281 team batting average and a .382 slug- ging percentage.. Coach Norris is optimistic about next year ' s squad, which will be competing in the Eastern Eight Conference for the first time. by Peter Boggs 174 The Joggers Cometh In an infinite amount of different shapes and sizes, they can be found almost anywhere on campus. They are known to travel alone, or in groups . . . walking, trotting, always breathing heavily. They are the joggers. Joggers are a strange breed - a group that never really existed on a large scale until a few years ago. One can find them in almost any weather con- ditions trudging along around the ath- letic complex or enduring the hilly roads around campus. I decided to try and join that crowd, just to see what it was all about. I’d read all that stuff about the " inner peace” and the " feeling of accomplish- ment” that only running can give. Were those the reasons for the sudden interest in jogging? For some, maybe, but for the majority of URI joggers there seemed to be more to it than that. As I plodded along, I noticed several different types of joggers and each type seemed to display an individual motive for jog- ging. There were the preppie joggers, who almost seemed to say, " Yes, I can af- ford an $80 sweat suit and I want ever- ybody to know it.” They sported the latest Adidas suits and Puma running shoes. They seemed to jog because it was the " in” thing to do. On the other end of the scale were the poor joggers who figured, ' Til run in anything just to get into shape.” They were always decked out in the basic gray sweat pants, either too baggy or too tight, and an old sweat shirt. Some even tried to cover the up the sweat pants by wearing gym shorts over them, but this only added to their im- poverished appearance. In between these two extremes are the typical athletes from URI. probably running because the coach told them to. One can tell the athlete joggers by their navy blue sweats with RFIODE ISLAND and a number printed on the front. In an environment where we do lots of just plain sitting or reclining. Afterall. the schedule of the average student consists of eating, studying and sleep- ing. Jogging is certainly one way of " getting yourself to circulate.” by Peter C. Boggs J McLellan 185 Photos by W.E Byrnes My Work . . . And Welcome To It Once we have left school, the majority of graduates are expecting to get jobs. But before that graduation day, most of the student body will have held several types of jobs. Many of these jobs will have been had while attending school. Some were employed by the University directly while others were hired by some of the stores in the area. Those who were lucky enough to get a job on campus would find a balance of satisfaction and frustration in their work. Working to accomplish a goal and to receive a monthly paycheck (which will be used for tuition or on Thursday night) are joys of the job. The frustrations set in when the student worker must meet head on the constant politicing which a Univer- sity does. The student must put up with the red tape of bureaucracy and the attempts of University “poli- ticians” trying to use the workers’ department to further their own goals. These politicians treated the student workers as if they are doing the students a favor by giving them a job. Ever present is the need to create a balance between working (synonymous with money) and studying (another term for boring). The employee, whether on campus or off, must be sure he devotes time to study away from the job. This is easier for on campus work- ers since they are only allowed twenty hours a week, but the workers who have jobs in town can work a forty-hour week. There is not much time for any- thing other than school and the job so the budgeting of time is essential. No matter where students work, they will grow in the job and learn what to expect when they enter the real world. Even though this may not be the career that they wish to pursue latter in life, this is the proving ground of the working world. By William E. Byrnes 188 W Koerting “ Service With a Smile”. No matter how hectic a basic school day can get, there’s always at least one or two times during the day when even the busiest person puts down his or her work. And that’s when it’s time to eat. Seldom do I find an individual who does not like to eat. This is not to say that I have not found an individual who did not like “Mama Butter- field’s” meals. Afterall, there’s no place like home for good cooking. There has been much resistance con- fronting the quality of URI’s food. Amidst all of this distemper, there has been a balancing element, sup- plying all those who dine with unbe- lievable service. What I am talking about are those beautiful people who prepare and serve us our food. This group of women have success- fully challenged McDonald’s in giv- ing us “service with a smile,” even if the meals are somtimes slightly less than (burp) perfect. All prejudices aside, I know the women who work in Butterfiled are the most homogenous and friendly group of employees at URI. My fa- vorite include Gert Seioto from Ger- many, who says she is unfamiliar with fluency in the American lan- guage, yet still loves the friendly atti- tudes of the people. Gert and Marion Maggio make up one of the main-dish-teams. The dy- namic duo always seem to have something wonderful to say. Two other favorites are my morning girl, Laura Dunlap, and lunch time lady, Millie Larlham. Both of these ladies know how to smile even in the early hours when smiling can be sometimes difficult. Yet, Roger Williams and Hope Hall contain workers who spread this same kind of cheer around to their daily customers. All these women, have made my life h ere at URI a more pleasant and enjoyable exper- ience. by Liz Hahn I® 190 J. DeWaele 191 L Fitzgerald 192 The Ultimate UFO. It’s the precurser of spring. It serves as a target for skydivers and as a con- test skill for dogs. It’s the ultimate game for everybody — athletic and nonathletic, men and women, young and old. Almost everybody on every campus nationwide owns one. It was patented by Whammo way back in the 1960’s, and given the name “Fris- bee.” Each year beginning with the first spring thaw, dorm front yards be- come colorful playgounds for frisbee games. The Quad is another area for larger and sometimes multi-frisbee group games, especially during high noon. When you see those whizzing, silent discs, you know spring is near- by. Along the with the promise of spring, come frisbee competitions not only for contests in student frisbee-fling- ing expertise, but also in the exper- tise of man’s best friend. Did you ever see a dog run one-hundred yards and leap eight feet in the air to catch a zipping frisbee in a quick accurate bite? Frisbee is so contageous, a day at the beach can resemble to the unaware observer an invasion of miniature, multicolored flying saucers from out- er space. But we know that frisbee is so much fun to play and such a good way to get together with friends, that it is no wonder it can be considered the ultimate game on campus. by Nancy Kutcher J. McLellan 193 The Union. i To the east lie academic buildings and fraternities. To the west are resi- dence halls. To the north, classrooms and dorms, and to the south, Route 138. From all directions people come; stu- dents, staff, professors, and visitors. It is the nerve center of the Universi- ty. It is unavoidable. It is the Memo- rial Union. To some it’s the bank and Bookstore, for others, it’s the Ram’s Den and Commuter Lounge. For some it is a way station, for others, it is a way of life. The Union has many moods. There is the hustle and bustle of the noon- time crowd to the mellow wandering of a few at night. Early morning there are those rush- ing to class, and those who slowly sip coffee in the Den in an attempt to wake their bodies. There are the staffers who look fresh and alert as their workday begins. By early afternoon, the strollers re- place the rushers. They wander through the Bookstore, stand in the bank line, buy ice cream cones, browse through the records in Cellar Sights and sounds. The hardcore pool players are at afternoon practice and the commut- ers wear smiles at the sight of their rides home. Don’t forget those involved in stu- dent organizations who are attending to business. By 4:30 the Union begins to quiet down. People walk through at a slower pace, on their way home from the Library. The Pub gears up for the rowdy peo- ple, but the rest of the building is blanketed with soothing quiet. When the Union is empty, footsteps on the tile have a ring to them. Every sound echoes. Few remain after mid- night; the SRO people, the night manager, the Ciga r and WRIU peo- ple. The building doesn’t creak, but the quiet becomes unsettling. People come and go from the Univer- sity, but the Union will always have its people; it will always have activ- ity. It will always be the melting pot of University life. by Kathleen Yanity 194 195 It ' s Still Rock W Roll. WRIU-FM surveyed its campus lis- teners in 1979 to find out what peo- ple listened to most often. The most unpopular modes of music were blue- grass and punk rock (one vote each.) The station’s punk show was “Search and Destroy.” It is still on the air on Saturday nights. At it’s inception, the show offered music that was immensely unpopu- lar but still had a loyal following of subterraneans that called in regular- ly for requests. When it was an- nounced the show was going off the air, calls threatened violence. But the show stayed and so did the mu- sic, and now it seems that new wave has become the mainstream of popu- lar music. Disco and the Dead had the people of URI in their grasp for years and it appeared that Johnny Rotten wasn’t impressing many people. At a Christ- mas dance in the Ram’s Den in 1978, the floor cleared out completely when the Ramones were played. Anything that offended people that much was bound to catch on sooner or later. “The king is gone but he’s not forgot- ten.” Punk rock is still disliked, but Blondie, Joe Jackson, and even The Clash have made it rich. All it took was for someone to play them on the radio. Entertainment on campus has been an issue that gets people angry for some reason. Nobody good ever comes here, only has-beens, groups who are about to hit rock bottom, so they say. SEC doesn’t understand why nobody goes to see Jefferson Stafship or Dave Mason or Aztec Two Step or other acoustic folks. Their surveys told them the students prefer the light rock and country genres. Somebody somewhere brought the Neighborhoods down from Boston to play in the Ballroom and the concert sold out. All night the Union was filled with people in spiked haircuts, pointed boots, wrinkled white shirts and skinny ties. Wait . . . these people don’t go to this school. Where are they in the day- time? Punk comes from URI and gives everyone the chance to lead the double life. Yes, now everyone ex- pects new wave bands to be a regular feature at URI. by Stephen Seddon K O’Halloran SEC SLS: The Year In Review SLS SEC can be considered the heart of campus lectures and entertainment. Student Lecture Series and Student En- tertainment Committee are both Stu- dent Senate funded organizations that bring well known political or social fig- ures and musical artists to campus. Like any growing organization, both these groups have undergone transi- tions that should be mentioned in re- viewing what SLS SEC have brought to us in these past four years, as well as projecting what they will be bringing to CJRI in the seasons ahead. SLS, the committee that formerly pre- sented obscure topics and people to au- diences of only 200 or so, is leaning more toward better known speakers or topics, for audiences of around 700. This year, according to Alan Glick, the Student Activities Program Coordina- tor, was a successful year for SLS. Political figures, Howard K. Smith and Andrew Young; and Yankee manager, Billy Martin, drew full houses with their dynamic, relevant presentations. In the past, SLS has also successfully featured other controversial or social ac- tivists such as consumer activists Ralph Mader and Dick Gregory; Women ' s Rights activist Kate Millet, Jonestown massacre authority, Mark Lane; Nazi hunter Simon Weizenthal and more en- tertaining performers such as the ex- perts on the Amityville horrors, Ed and Lorraine Warren; and the psychic magi- cian, the Amazing Kreskin. Next year students can look forward to more very interesting and pertinent, as well as entertaining speakers featured by SLS, because scheduled for the fall are Wilson Byran Key, author of the book Subliminal Seduction, a study of the exploitation of the subconscious used in advertising; and Mel Brooks, famous for " Eh, what’s up Doc? " and other cartoon characterizations. SEC, on the other hand, has always been considered by most students to be the committee responsible for getting, or not getting, rock groups to perform on campus. This is the image SEC is moving away from. The plans of SEC from now on will be to present smaller concerts and more theater shows. In the past. South- side Johnny, B. Willie Smith and Charile Daniels brought down the roof of Ed- wards. But other concerts like Jefferson Starship and Dave Mason caused SEC to sustain a loss. Perhaps if smaller bands, since they will attract smaller croweds, were to play in the Ballroom instead of Edwards or Keany, according to the logic of the newly reconstructed organization, SEC will probably be more of a success. SEC took a lot of flack over the alleged Grateful Dead concert scheduled for Spring Weekend, 1980. The problem was due to the Dead’s refusal to per- form outside, in addition to the problem concerning the lack of Keany’s ceiling strength to support the lights necessary for the Dead’s indoor show. The Dead would have literally brought down the ceiling had they performed for Spring Weekend! Instead of the Dead, SEC had to resort to Plan B: Pousette Dart, John Hall and Papa John Creach for an outdoor con- cert. The three bands did a super job, but only about 2500 people attended, despite the great weather. Hence, SEC again took financial and spiritual loss. Similarly, the Blue Grass Festival, only a couple of weeks later, featured small names like the Fiasco Brothers, The Fic- tion Brothers Band, and Bill Harrell and the Virginians, drawing a crowd about the same size, despite the incredible per formances. Our chances of nabbing the big bands are either slim or none, with the Provi- dence Civic Center so nearby and the budget so limited. But small-time bands, on the brink of becoming big, are affor dable to both SEC and the students, and will be the cheif forms of entertainment, as well as theater and mime shows in the following years.

Can you find your dorm? 212 Remember The “Good Old Days’’. Yearbooks weren’t really invented to scoff up fresh off the press and scour relentlessly, although that is no doubt one way to enjoy them. Yearbooks by their very nature are for putting away on a shelf to gather dust for years and years until one day you are hit with a heavy dose of nostalgia or a visit from an old college friend. Most of the time the past looks a lot better then the pre- sent just because of the distance in- volved. And with a yearbook, which is meant to capture all the best and most colorful moments, the past can some- times look almost unbelievably rosy. Here ' s something to put those best and brightest of moments in perspective, in case you ever actually start believing “my life will never be that wonderful again.” Remember Hopeburgers every single day, and those memorable evenings at the dining hall when you had a choice between shoe leather veal and show leather liver? Remember the wild animals next door in your dormitory, who you swore to shoot on sight, but instead you let them borrow your typewriter, your flashlight, your Rolling Stones records, your toothpaste, soap and shampoo, speakers and portable TV — and then they flunked out and you never saw them again? Remember the wild block party that went on and on one Thursday night un- till five in the morning? Well, of course you don’t remember all of it. But you’ve probably never been able to forget the five surprise quizzes you bombed the next day. Remember the Bo Derrick (or Robert Redford) lookalike that finally went with you to the fraternity (or sorority) semi-formal? Remember the football player (or Ramette) that left with you? Remember the time the computer lost all your preregistration materials and there was no room left in any of your required courses and it was the last se- mester of your senior year? Remember the time you and all your friends put in for the same suite in Cod- dington, and you got stuck in Peck with Charles Manson Jr. for a roommate? Remember when you finally got into Coddington the next year, and there were no suites? Finally, remember the charming, witty professor who always gave facinating lectures, always was available for help after class, and never gave a grade be- low a B plus? I didn’t think so.

We had the three essential elements neces- sary for success on our side: the un- relenting clear skies and warm sun, a psyched class of enthusiastic stu- dents, and the creative imaginations and hard work of the Senior Week Committee. It is impossible to determine the most successful event of the many Senior Week activities. The luau was sold out within the first three hours the tickets went on sale, and still more students without tickets gath- ered at Stedman ' s field on that clear, blue day. Remember the Hawaiian girl teaching everybody to belly dance? Yet, this does not mean the luau was the best event. The disco dance at Shamrock Cliffs drew a crowd of over 3,000, including the uninvited Buddy Cianci. So many people crowded the dance floors, that each person was allowed the space of about one square foot for dancing. It was great. But then there was the booze cruise. Not one ship, but two — also a total sellout. Disco roller skating drew a surpris- ingly large and enthusiastic crowd, considering the event was new and unusual. Hundreds of students, most of whom could not skate, boogied around under flashing disco lights to that thumping disco beat. Faces from as far back as freshman year reappeared, and old acquaint- ances were renewed before the final departure from URI, graduation. May 21 through June 1 was truly an unforgettable week. by Nancy Kutcher 227 229 " Wow, We Made It! " Joseph F Matthews. Student Speaker 2,600 graduates sat under the blazing sun, sweltering in their black caps and gowns wondering about their futures. " What do we do now?” If you were lucky. Career Planning and Placement or some other connection already helped you line up an exciting job in your area of concentration But a year of high inflation, high unem- ployment and all other indicators pointing toward recession, the major- ity of graduates seriously questioned the possibility of landing a good job within the first year after graduation. For some June I was the best day in four years. For others it was the sad- dest. For most, it was the culmination of a long effort bringing them a leap closer to attaining their once-very dis- tant goals. Although the guest speeches were not great tearjerkers or motivational speeches, graduation day holds some- thing that will stay vivid in the minds of all of those who participated.

Byrnes 318 James Rosenfield Lee Greenwald Nancy Kutcher Larry Ginsberg Larry Fitzgerald Terri Paglione Four years have come and gone. Most graduates immediate reactions were ones of happiness. All of the hard work was over with. No more reading assignments, term papers, or final exams. This happiness was lessened with the realization of what gradu- ation really meant. Many of the close friends we associated with day in and day out are now scattered across the country. Our seats in the class- rooms, the Rams Den and the Pub are now occupied by fresh- men. And now the class of 1980 must be satisfied with fond memories. These memories are what Renaissance 1980 is all about. Looking back it is easy to see how many things have changed. Coming to URI, intellectual growth would seem to be the de- sired result. But college life is more than just academics. For most students, intellectual growth was overshadowed by per- sonal growth. The many experiences of a college education and college life had helped to form their personalities. Even the University has grown during our stay. We ' ve seen new buildings constructed, new programs established and even a new college formed. In this years edition of Renaissance we have tried to relive the many facets of this growth process. The 1979-1980 school year was not one to write home about. But unfortunately this is not to say that there wasn ' t anything to write about. The university has been plagued by faculty strikes, sexual harassment issues and budget woes. If URI is to continue to grow it needs the state, it ' s students and it ' s alumnus. You should not write off URI as a thing of the past because you have graduated. URI has become a part of you and will always reflect on you. Producing a yearbook of this size is not an easy job. I would like to extend my deepest thanks to the Renaissance 1980 staff. Out of a potential work force of over 9,000 undergraduates, they are the ones who came forward with their time, energy and ideas to make Renaissance 1980 a reality. Being a yearbook editor sure does keep you busy. It takes sacri- fices such as sleep, social life and grade point averages to get the job done. How else can a person have the unique experience of being evicted from his office due to building renovations, days before a deadline, and during exam week no less! Putting a book this size together is somewhat like pulling an all-nighter to finish a 10 page term paper. But try to consider those agonizing hours drawn out over a 10 month period. After seeing a quality fin- ished product all of the skipped classes, long days and sleepless nights were worth it. Larry Ginsberg and Lee Greenwald did a great job handling their multitude of responsibilities in the photography department. Whether trying to coax a stubborn photographer to take a less than desirable assignment, photographing the same assignment themselves, or spending hours in the darkroom Larry and Lee managed to come through with flying colors. This dynamic duo deserves credit for a system which kept track of 20 photogra- phers and organized literally thousands of photos. Walter Koerting, as Business Manager, handled all of our bills, contracts and other related matters. Walter didn ' t seem to be satisfied with just those duties though. He took many fine pho- tographs, contributed ideas and could be counted on to do just about any other job that need to be done. Literary Editor Nancy Kutcher came through with many good pieces of literary work. Her ability to organize a staff of writers was a great assest to Renaissance 1980. Nancy also proved to be invaluable just by being there to talk to when a depressed editor needed consoling. A wealth of experience in the area of student activities made James Rosenfield a natural for the position of Activities Co- ;■ Editor. James seemed to really enjoy work. This trait lead to his decision to organize The Arts section of Renaissance 1980, as well as his share of work in the Activities section. Terri Paglione performed well in her duties of Activities Co- Editor. She designed a great graphic theme for the activities section, as well as taking many of the photographs. Terri turned £ out to be a valuable asset throughout the production of the 1 Sports Editor Larry Fitzgerald brought a wealth of photographic knowledge with him to his position. Larry got a late start, but managed to organize most of the sport photos and recruit writ- ers for sports copy before having to go home for the summer. Senior Section Coordinator William E. Byrnes proved to be a real lifesaver during the summer. Without Web ' s help the last few sections of the book, including the lengthy senior section, would have taken forever to finish. Advisors Sharon Bosack and Roger Conway were also there when needed. Roger proved to be a goldmine of information where printing and legal maters were involved. Sharon ' s exper- ience with yearbooks came in handy. She was a big help with her typing, suggestions and constant encouragement. Some of the many others at URI whose help was greatly appreci- ?£ ated include; Ginny Nye, Irene Nelson, Diane Manchester, Chris |1 Rigney, Mel Murphy, Karen McDougall, Jim Norman, Fran Dan- | owski, Bill Bowers, The Information Desk Staff and the Cigar. I would also like to thank the many others who offered help throughout the year. John DeWaele and Gary Ellel of T. D. Brown Studios deserve much credit for the many fine Portraits and candid photos they J took during the course of the year. John deserves special thanks for bending over backwards to take care of any photography related problems. Barry Woolf of Josten ' s American Yearbook Company has once U again helped to deliver a quality yearbook at URI. Barry ' s ideas I and suggestions were valuable throughout the book. To all of my friends I owe a big thank you for trying to help me 1 keep my sanity for the last 10 months, although I am not sure if | they succeeded. I definitely owe a word of thanks to my parents and family. Their love and encouragement helped me make it through the worst times when I was surrounded with work. They also deserve a I special award for putting up with me for the last 10 months. Lastly, I would like to congratulate my fellow members of the class of 1980. And wish them the best of luck in whatever they A™ m. nu tjL ts ' James M. McLeiian Editor-in-Chief Renaissance 1980 The Last Four Years At URI President Gerald Ford rang the Liberty Bell that hot sticky July 4 afternoon, and set thousands of bells in all corners of the United States chiming in honor of this nation ' s 200th birthday. The ceremo- ny meant a lot to some of us. less to others, as we experienced it separately, wherever we were. America ' s bicentenial may have been merely a symbol, but it did mark the end of an old era in our nation ' s history and the beginning of a new one. It was a year of transition for us too. members of the classes of ' 76 at high schools everywhere. Most of us were about 18- years-old, ready to begin our adult lives and embark upon our college careers. We changed in the four years that followed, and so did our school, our nation and our world. There was a national election our freshman year, and we replaced President Ford, the man who pardoned Richard Nixon, with Jimmy Carter, a Baptist peanut millionaire from Georgia who told us. " I ' ll never lie to you. " The country was at peace, and none of us worried about a draft, unless it was from a dormitory window. We acquainted ourselves with each other and with our campus. Soon, none of us had to ask directions to our classes, the library, the dining hall, the pub. the bookstore, or Iggy ' s. Inflation and unemployment were our country ' s biggest problems; ours seemed to be midterms and finals. There was talk on campus of beefing up security, giving guns to campus police. Most of us won- dered why they didn ' t just spend the money on better food in the dinning halls. It was the year of Proposition 13. the taxpayers ' revolt, and public money for education was tight. Our tuition soared and our financial aid stalled. The state’s share of financing for URI went down, and the student share went up. U t? protested with a rally at the statehouse in 322 November, along with other students from Rhode Island College. The demonstration got some of us on TV and in the newspapers, but it didn’t seem to stop our tuition from going up, or keep the state support for our education from going down. Our bleary eyes focused on these and other campus issues and events every Wednesday and Friday morning in the pages of The Good 5c Cigar, which we scanned during breakfast or before early morning classes. Then, in December 1977, the newly-formed Great Swamp Gazette, we had something to read nearly every day of the week. And 1978 gave us a lot to read about. Our academic lives were unexpectedly interrupted one stormy Mon- day in February, when " The Great Blizzard of ’78 " dropped three feet of snow on Rhode Island in less than 24 hours, shutting down the state for a week. The campus became the scene of a weeklong winter carnival. Text- books sat idle on shelves as students played gleefully in the deep white snow. Dining hall trays and street signs made handy sleds for sliding down the Elephant Walk and other slopes, and cross-country skiers roamed around freely. Budding Micheolangelos wasted no time turning mounds of snow into masterpieces of sculpture. A late after- noon happy hour at the Pub capped each day of winter fun. As the hot sun melted the snow that spring, our hot basketball team burned every opponent in sight. The Rams fought their way to the top of New England college basketball, and came within two points of beating Duke University on its home court in the first round of the NCAA tournament. 323 The energy situation had always been a topic of discussion for us in and out of the classroom, but it took center stage during the spring of 1979, when an accident at a nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania made the debate on nuclear and other energy forms more lively than ever. That year at URI ended on a note of optimism, with black civil rights leader Jesse Jackson on the commencement podium, preaching to the " new generation " to turn the world around and fill it with hope. Then came the summer of ' 79. Gas lines everywhere, prices rising a dime a week. Where would it end, a buck a gallon? A buck fifty ? President Carter retreated to Camp David and the country waited for him to come back and tell us what to do. When he did, nobody seemed too excited. Ten Years after they had reached the moon, Americans were won- dering if they could keep having houses, cars and money in the bank. Commentators and columnists called it a crisis of confidence and leadership. September rolled around and we were ready to forget the world’s problems and worry about making it to our nine o ' clock classes. Only there were no classes, only picket lines. For some, the strike was a symbol of the state university ' s frustrating search for recognition and support in Rhode Island. For others it was a reason to condemn professors, adminstrators or both. For everyone it was a frustrating waste of time. We were still reeling from the strike when we were hit with charges of sexual harassment on campus. The publicity and stigma of that issue haunted us all year long, and still we had to worry about our library, our substandard laboratories and fading financial support from the state. After a second semester that seemed to drag on forever and ever, most of us said we were glad to get out. 324 325 »2b Finally we assembled together one more time on the quad in black caps and gowns for the ceremonial rites of passage. There would be no diplomas today-, the strike had pushed ever thing back all year, and we would get them in the mail eventually. There was the music, the pomp, the speeches, some cheers and the sun beating down on a hot, sticky June I afternoon. There was even the chiming of the bells in Davis Flail It was just a symbol, but it did mark the end of one era in our lives and the beginning of a new one. We were done with our college careers. We had changed since ive started URI, and so had our school, our nation and our world. Things will go right on changing, and if our time at URI meant anything, we will be more prepared now to deal with that change, and maybe even shape its direction. By David Gregorio 127 When You Are Old When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and their shadows deep-, How many loved your moments of glad grace. And loved your beauty with false love or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you. And loved the sorrows of your changing face; And bending down beside the glowing bars. Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars William Butler Yeats
