Class loads can be de- manding, social events can be- k ■ fif ' jm come limited, teachers can be- ■ B f ' Aj m k come oppressive and tyrannical, ■ fr ■ ' vm V and school politics can seem ai «fn 1 petty and ridiculous. In fact, much of what transpires in a ¥M IV M p i ' ' ■ four year period can seem rep- 11 Wk etitious, and finally, routine. r 1 ft Vi M V with only changes in the names r i- ' IJ ni ■ and faces of some of the partici- f Jg | H -l ■ pants adding any variety. I t r Yet, time spent at UNCA, un- f y J " HAt- ' ' I less one wishes it to be, is sel- Tj m dom wasted. Friendships are k made which will outlast any pe- ' I ■ ■ riod of undergraduate study; knowledge in working with and relating to people which is ap- plicable to any life situation is readily gained; and the academ- 23L- ffi H H ics are, for the most part, profes- •- ' -- IHPP 1 sionally presented, affording in- »- i| terested students the opportu- nity to select the direction in life which best suits them. .

' t;: ' I % »f: ii- f Beyond campus activities, both academic and social, the surrounding area holds much in the way of outdoor activities. Whether you wish to find an ideal campsite, a good hiking trail, sites for boating or canoe- ing, rock climbing or caving, or are simply interested in a good ride on the parkway, a secluded site for a picnic, or just a place to get away, you have the oppor- tunity to do so in some of the most beautiful country you will ' V- ' ' ' ; 2 Ik The city of Asheville offers much, if you can look beyond the rowdy bars, the bad movies, and the drive-in restaurants. There are craft fairs, dramatic productions, and concerts which, while infrequent, provide a needed break in the routine. But beyond simple offerings of activities, Asheville presents an opportunity to witness the grad- ual transition of a smaller, more locally oriented Southern com- munity with its colorful side streets, stores, and personages, into a larger more progressive one. And, while this process is a slow one, look carefully, for in 30 years, who knows what a rar- ity a smaller, locally oriented community will be. These, then, are some of the things that give UNCA a special quality that somehow makes the hassles and the jive worthwhile; we hope this book makes it ea- sier for you to keep them close to you, even through the pas- sage of time. ACADECDICS St. Jerome Albrect Durer . Tucker Cooke n Frank Edwinn i Art and Music A career in art is formidable. Since the rise of the university system, art has been recognized as " leisure " which accompanies the classical and scientific stud- ies. The artist who depends on his creative talent alone has a rough time making ends meet these days. Art is rarely sought as a profession anymore, but has become more of a sideline or hobby. Jobs for the artist are almost nonexistent, so many artists work as dishwashers or laundry slingers — anything that will allow spare time for art. Supplies are expensive, pa- trons and buyers are scarce, but moreover, art is time-consum- ing. Time for discovery of other facets of life is easily lost while working on a piece for days that just ends up in the trash can. Although time must be spent to develop technique, it tends to inhibit the expansion of ideas. , . Art and Music 12 David Cook The UNCA Art Department continues to grow. The three-di- mensional department of sculp- ture, ceramics, jewelry, and weaving has temporarily moved to the Art Annex on Merrimon Ave. The Annex is inconvenient for those students who lack transportation, but there is much more room to work there. The move allowed the two-di- mensional department of paint- ing, drawing, and printing to ex- pand their classroom space in the Humanities Building. The biggest change will come about within three years. If all goes as planned, an Art-Management Building will be constructed on campus having the same square footage of classroom space as the Ramsey Library. 13 Catherine Nailling L.M u n Lucia Matron The Art faculty is growing. In addition to Tucker Cooke and Elma Johnson, Jos Vandermeer received full-time teaching sta- tus this year, and there are two part-time instructors. This ac- counts for the rise in course of- ferings this year. The quality of instruction is very high. Friend- ship accompanies instruction and makes learning natural, al- lowing meaningful expression from the soul. IT Biology lb Biology is, by definition, the science of life and life processes. This includes the study of struc- ture, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution of living organisms. Biology is a science which encompasses all other sciences, for it is the foun- dation upon which all other sci- ences are based. The UNCA Biology Depart- ment is geared to providing its major students with a solid background in the field, with an emphasis on methods of re- search. The department exposes its students to courses designed to increase their awareness of their role in the world of life, as well as preparing them for spe- cialized study in professional work or graduate programs. TOP LEFT: John McCoy TOP RIGHT: Larry Rowlette ABOVE: Harry Johnston 17 Steve Sollod The " liberal arts " require- ments of the school combined with the objective scientific methods elucidated by the Biol- ogy professors produce gradu- ates of an extremely high cali- ber. Because of the school ' s size, different sub-departments with- in the Biology Department are not possible. There exists, how- ever, a fine representation of the biological sciences, including botany, entomology, microbiolo- gy, human and cell physiology, and zoology, with the professors who majored in these fields lec- turing on these and other relat- ed subjects. 18 Biology 19 Biology William Richard Davis Herb Pomfrey 20 Rob Underwood m :,} A biology major firm in his goals is advised as to the most desirable path to accomplishing his aims. Majors ' interests range from horticulture to medicine. Fine pre-dental, pre-medical, and pre-optometry programs have been devised which fulfill all the requirements for apply- ing to those professional schools. Whatever his interests are, a biology student will find a place in the department which allows him to fulfill his goals. 21 «u Chemistry Lloyd Remington - ' " ' Dexter Squibb 22 23 24 iV Classics The study of classics is an important part of a well-rounded college curriculum. Knowledge of the classics keeps the world linked to the culture and thought of past ages of human excellence. The Classics Department teaches, among other things, discipline and patience. Major students struggle to master the intricacies and subtleties of Greek and Latin, using the works of the greatest writers of all time.

This year ' s crowning glory was the opening of the Carole Belk Theater, allowing Theater UNC-Asheville to bid farewell to Li- pinsky Auditorium (and competing for rehearsal space with S.G. movies and special programs). The crowning absurdity was the delaying of the opening night ceremony due to a phoned-in bomb threat. Fortunately, though the theater was evacuated for several hours, all that went flying were rumors and Mr. Wengrow ' s pulse rate; and after a tense delay, the theater was able to open intact, if not on time. LEFT: Arnold Wengrow ABOVE: Paul Sweeney 28 TT 29 iV Theatre UNC Asheville Thornton Wilder, Arnold Wengrow, and Paul Sweeney led a group of dedicated actors, members of Drama 231, and many more as they all took part in bringing to Lipinsky Student Center Auditorium its last The- atre UNC -Asheville production. On the nights of October 7-9, 1976, Wilder ' s OUR TOWN was presented by Theatre UNC- Asheville. Under the direction of Arnold Wengrow, with set- ting and lights by Paul Sweeney, OUR TOWN was a success. Set in a small New Hamp- shire town, the play portrayed through a stage manager and an excellent cast the routine nature of its life. Through the percep- tion of death, the townspeople and audience learned that every person, action, and breath are important, for it is these that make up life as we know it. 30 Thornton Wilder once stated that the play was " ... an at- tempt to find a value above all price for the smallest events of daily life. " If a theatre produc- tion would have been priceless in the eyes of Wilder, as it was with its audience. 31 kl Theatre I NC Asheville Richard Bnnslr. Shendan §chool §candal Ceiebraiing The 200th Armi -ersar of the Comedy The SOlh Annnvrsary of The Lni ersu of Sorth Carolina at Ashe ille The Opening of the Carol Belk Theatre 32 THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL captures the spir- it of an anniversary of an enduring comedy, a miles- tone in the growth of a university, and the opening of a new theater. It is, as the title ironically implies, a play about learning. Youth learns from age, age learns from youth, and both learn from experience. As with all great comedies, it celebrates the establishment of the good society. The intriguers are banished and the foolish gain insight. 33 i . -J The opening of the Carol Grotnes Belk Theatre is a happy occasion for everyone at The University of North Carolina at Asheville. This excellent and unique facility will provide a resource for signifi- cant improvement in instruction and performance in the dramatic arts. It is a great honor and plea- sure for UNC-A to join with one of North Caroli- na ' s most generous and pubhc-spirited families in this important enterprise. William E. Highsmith The Carol Belk Theatre, new home for the De- partment of Drama and Theatre UNC -Asheville, opened on April 21, 1977 with Richard Brinsley Sheridan ' s classic 18th century comedy, THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL. The production marked the 200th anniversary of the comedy and celebrated the 50th anniversary of UNC-A as well as the opening of the Carol Belk Theatre. The new theatre is a 199-seat arena theatre, which can be adapted for thrust stage or proscenium produc- tions. 34 L Foyer Stage 35 A Education The Education Department is the haven for those who wish to make a career out of teaching the young and preparing them for society. The Department can frequently instruct its major students how to teach; occassionally it can aid them in learning what to teach; but, with the existing glut in the field of teaching, and the limited number of jobs for college graduates with degrees in education, it can seldom aid them to discover where to teach. And that is an education in itself. 36 OPPOSITE PAGE; ABOVE: Arnold Sgan, Verne Bergemann, Ted Shoaf BELOW: Bob Haner LEFT: Joan Adams BELOW: Ted Shoaf BOTTOM: Verne Bergemann L 37 ABOVE: Marcel Andrade BELOW: Some of Christine GuUickson ' s favorite flowera.

Foreign Language The Department of Foreign Language is designed to instruct its students in the art of communication in languages other than english. The study of foreign languages also helps to bridge the gaps between cultures by exposing students to customs and traditions other than theirs. A 40 T 41 vll a History The study of history seeks to answer the ques- tion of the future with an understanding of the past. Critical time periods and events; alterations in governmental and social structures; changes in the roles and responsibilities of social classes; the effects of w-ar; and the problems of peace: all are examined carefully. The study of the past, of course, demands a proper atmosphere, and West- ern North Carolina provides such an atmosphere.

Novels, poems, and plays are broken down into their basic elements and examined for narrative style, use of symboUsm, simile and metaphor, point of view, meaning, and substance. Literature majors are taught to appreciate what makes good literature Good Literature and the fundamental errors that even the best writers make. 61 vfl BELOW; George Henry Johnson RIGHT: Vaughn Underwood — Poetn- Instructor BELOW: Carl Sandburg home FAR RIGHT: Tony Fisher 50 51 Vl Economics The Economics Department is charged with instructing students in the principles, theories and structure of our economic system. The distribu- tion of wealth and resources; cost fac- tors; demand curves; the strengths and weaknesses of current economic policy: all are studied to give a well- rounded understanding of what it is that makes our economic system work: pure, unadulterated greed.

Math can be treated as a tool: use- ful for figuring GPA ' s; it can be treated as a science — this approach adds dignity to the discipline, and makes it easier for professional mathematicians to justify their existence to taxpayers. Math can be approached as a language: communicating created principles in impressive language, and for whisper- ing sweet nothings to digital computers. And, as a game, Math pro%-ides the greatest enjoNTnent to its majors, with hours spent toiling over problems in complex sj-mbols. The professor communicates in simple s Tnbols: H. G.

" Inquiry into the substance of hfe, seeking to understand the particular by con- sidering the universal, this is the quest of the philosopher. Philosophy majors spend their time with the greatest thinkers of the ' ages, dis- covering how each attempted to understand, and in part answer, the eternal questions. This program of study creates inquiring, skeptical minds, logical thinkers, and " mystic visionaries. Unfortunately, with its. emphasis ' on substance rather than function, the study- of ' philosophj) seldom creates a basis for employment in a fun tion-oriepted society. - ! : ' ' ' l }i 63 v: - Physics Physics is concerned with dy- namics, with the mysteries of space, with astronomy, and with the forces and principles that con- trol the universe. Physics majors are very involved in their field of study: spending half of their time drifting off into space. 64 ll_ IMT Political Science Political Science is a discipline which is interested in political structures, pow- er and resource distribution, the politi- cal socialization process, the classical theories of governmental form and re- sponsibility, international political structures and difficulties, and the con- ditions necessary for both political sta- bility and political change. UXC-A ' s Po- litical Science Department is fortunate to have an IXS (Inter-Xation Simula- tion) Laboratory where students can get the feel of the demands, pressures, and problems of political decision-making. 66 lE i y 1 SIM-WORL UNC-A ABOVE: Bob Farzanegan LEFT: INS Laboratory OPPOSITE PAGE: ABOVE: Gene Rainey BELOW: Goetz Wolff 67 nr ABOVE: Tom Zumberge BELOW: Tim Barnwell vn If g(f: . - ' ?Wnv l m itt 70 iir Psychology Psychology is concerned with what makes humans function the way they do. Running around like rats in a maze, feeling as cut off from reality as a monkey in a cage, psychology students study behavioral characteris- tics, personality deviations, child psychology, and other related topics. Most important of all is the day when the student discovers how to develop a truly healthy person- ality: graduate and leave the rats and the monkeys be- hind.

Each year, this same interest in man ' s social behavior and his societies grasps a group of stu- dents who choose Sociology as their major field of study. The UNCA student ' s educa- tion in sociology begins with " Sociological Analysis " , which establishes an overview of snti- thesizing and generalizing a sci- ence for man and his social rela- tionships. Quickly building on and branching from this intro- duction, the student becomes progressively more involved in a variety of topics ranging from primitive tribes to modern so- cial problems, while integrating key concepts from history, eco- nomics, and political science. Walter Boland 80 M 81 llA James Grigsby Sociology Finally, after four years and thirty or more hours of credit in Sociolog " (involving drug addic- tion, methods of raising chil- dren. Haitian voodoo rites, problems of bureaucracies, and the political climates of obscure countries), the Sociology major can ' t help but consider the tre- mendous amount of injustice and unenlightenment that ex- ists in the world. But. as Dr. Bo- land emphasizes, more and more egalitarian tendencies are taking place each year, illustrat- ing the potentialities of the hu- man race. Ronald Reed 82 Robert McCall It is this potentiality that the Sociology major sees and wants to become involved with. But who will hire the Sociology ma- jor who, as Dr. Knight says, doesn ' t study any particular type of social work vocation, but rather who critically evaluated for four years the institutions of his society and of the world? Hopefully, most will reach their occupational goals, but probla- bly not until there is more rec- ognition of the strengths of the positive science of Sociology. Which means that there is the realization, as even Dr. Otti would admit, that not everyone will be able to live in Chicago.

But the youthful team was not to be denied, mounting a surprising drive at the end of the season in which they came from behind to de- feat Western Carolina Universi- ty, upset the College of Charles- ton, and give powerhouses Bel- mont Abbey and Central Wes- leyan a scare. Staffed with a new assistant coach, Rudy Morrees, whose op- timism helped the Bulldogs in realizing their playing potential, UNCA finished its finest season ever. Powered by an opportunis- tic front line and by two promis- ing freshman midfielders, Chris Ramsey and Russ Hutchins, as well as a young but determined defense, the team finished 6-7 for the season. However, the team was not to go unrewarded, as the Bulldogs received as invi- tation to the District VI plav- offs. 94 WMim mi m mmm .

Overcoming a tough schedule which featured 20 away games and only 12 at home in Justice Gym, and opponents such as nationally ranked Wake Forest University and Newberry College, the Bulldogs compiled an impressive 14-18 record, earning a berth in the District VI playoffs and winning the Optimist Tip-Off Tournament. Junior guard Bamford Jones paced UNCA ' s comeback from last year ' s 8-22 record, averag- ing over 19 points a game as he became the Bulldogs third all- time scorer and was named to the All-District team for the sec- ond consecutive year. Rounding out the line-up were forwards Tony Bumphus, John Camp- bell, and Scott DeVries. Fresh- man sensation George Gilbert and transfer John McCray shared duties at the other guard position. 97 Men ' s Basketball With all the starters return- ing next year along with a strong bench. Coach Bob Hartman and his newly acquired assistant, Jerry Green, are optimistic about the future. They hope to turn many of the narrow defeats into victories next year when Bulldog Basketball regains its former winning tradition. 98 UNCA Opponent | 79 High Point 91 119 Clearwater Christian 57 71 Carson-Newman 68 71 Pembroke State 64 65 East Carolina 68 83 Gardner Webb 102 74 Milligan 81 73 Lander 81 78 Augusta 77 73 Wake Forest 84 70 Pembroke State 74 65 Methodist 61 71 College of Charleston 70 93 USC-Aiken 95 70 Presbyterian 72 88 Wofford 78 86 Milligan 61 72 Belmont Abbey 70 83 Lenoir Rhyne 107 90 Wofford 74 87 Augusta 77 79 Southern Mississippi 89 82 USC-Aiken 75 106 Limestone 85 86 Mars Hill 89 74 Newberry 81 89 Lenoir Rhyne 100 67 Mars Hill 68 79 Belmont Abbey 72 70 Presbyterian 59 78 Mars Hill (District VI Playoffs) 79 99 iW UNC-A offers other organized sports in addition to Men ' s Basketball. The Women ' s Basketball program is growing and improving each year. Golf and tennis, while getting little recognition, are still important team sports. Swimming, normally offered, was not part of the sports program this year, due to difficulties with the pool. And cheerleading, of course, is an impor- tant part of all sports; one that seldom is appreciated. 100 TS Sports are a very impor- tant part of school life. People who participate in them seldom do so for the glory. It is, rather, a sense of personal achievement that motivates them. Us- ing and improving existing skills, working long hours, these people pour all their effort into making their performance the very best possible. These people, in no small way, have made a very significant contribu- tion to the substance of school spirit, and life. 101 IR Intramurals, not being a part of the Athletic Department Sports Program, are often neglected, both in recognition and support. Yet, here can be found a great dedica- tion to the sport and a willingness to participate. The members of the various intramural basketball and volleyball teams are people who are doing something they enjoy. And this enjoyment is just as im- portant to them as winning. And that ' s something important in it- self. 102 n m Bored here in Asheville? Tired of going to rowdy bars, bad movies, and the same restaurants over and over again? Asheville can hardly be described as a cultural or social oasis. Yet, solutions to the problem of something to do can be found. Within a seventy-five mile radius from Asheville, one can find almost unlimited opportunities for excitement in the mountains and forests of the region. 104 105 If you ' re interested in hiking and camping, the mountains and valleys hold many interesting things. Dazzling views from mountain tops; a cool relief from the heat of the city; a solitude that separates one from the frustrations and demands of school and work; a chance to see old houses, wells, mines, and other structures left from an earlier and simpler time; these are some of the things that await the camper as he travels further away from people and their cities. 106 ., ' . ■ - A ■ :, ).:■.. i f, mm ' :; 1 There are many rivers in the mountains which provide the perfect opportunity for those who enjoy tubing and canoeing. These are ideal passtimes for hot summer days, with the chill waters washing away sweat and laziness. If crawling around inside of the earth is your idea of recreation, there are many caves in the region ideal for spelunking; many with streams, waterfalls and miles of tunnels. And in the mountains one can hear the echoes of 250 million years. 108 109 .nr ' 1, Carmichael Humanities BIdg. (CH) 2. Carmichael Humanities Lecture Hall (HLH) 3 Carol Belk Theatre (CB) 4.

And, it must be remembered that this year ' s Student Senate has been able to conduct its meetings as scheduled more frequently than some of the past Senates. And, at least verbally, the current Senate has been more concerned with ac- countability to its constituency. However, in remembering this year ' s Senate, one is filled with im- ages of dissent, multiple resigna- tions, and political scandals and setbacks. Among those who resigned for personal and or academic reasons were Joan Adams, Social Commis- sioner; Lenny Crowley, Media Commissioner; Chris Mangum, Media Commissioner and Senator; Rose Sellers, Senator; Milton Crowe, Elections Commissioner; Vicki Ashe and Lyn McLean, Film Commission members; and Raye Brown, Finance Commissioner. Brown ' s resignation led to con- troversy over his handling of finan- cial matters and ended with his un- authorized removal of SG material and property from the SG office. 114 Pete Austin President 1977-78 Randy Kindley President 1976-77 I 1 BELOW: William Newberry Social Commissioner BELOW RIGHT: John Furek Vice- President 1976-77 Another mishap for the Kind- ley Administration was the es- tablishment of the Campus Commission on Student Ser- vices, which has taken from the SG many funding responsibil- ities. These factors, taken into con- sideration all together, led to the introduction of a so-called Suicide Bill to the Senate. The bill called for the dissolving of the Student Senate, eliminating all SG officials other than the Social and Finance Commis- sioners. The bill failed, but indi- cated the dissatisfaction that currently existed over the way things were being run. Joe Levy Production Director WUNF-FM WUXF-FM has been through some changes this year. Under Manager Dave Anderson, the station went through a change of format, attempting to offer something for everyone. Pro- gressive, rock, disco. Classical music, and jazz, in addition to various informational programs, were all offered. A computer logging system. which provides an accurate and comprehensive listing of pro- gramming, announcements, and informational scheduling was instituted. The program system is intended to be standardized to fit any college radio station format and sold to other college stations. Dave Anderson resigned in February for both academic and personal reasons, and Assistant Manager John Covey became the new Station Manager. Despite all the problems, the station still managed to keep its head above water, allowing " perpetually asleep " Covey to continue his dreams.

Yet the fact remains that, on distribution days, almost every- one on campus can be seen clutching the latest issue. This interest might be attrib- uted to the fact that the paper is free. It might simply be that it is the ideal size for lining bird cages and litter boxes. Whatever the reason, the RIDGERUN- NER gets into circulation rapid- ly. RIGHT Forrest Reid Managing Editor BELOW (L-R) Ramona Griffin Editor Gary Stone Business Manager Allison Phillips News Editor Ken Johns Layout Editor Ridgerunner Initially, there was much speculation over Editor Ramo- na Griffin ' s technical qualifica- tions to produce a quality new newspaper. As the year stretched on, however, the tech- nical quality has improved from issue to issue, proving that learning while doing can be at least partially effective. It must be admitted that much controversy has existed over the content of the RID- GERUNNER. It has been called biased, one-sided, and in- correct in many instances. And in some cases, these accusations have been at least partially jus- tified. However, it must be remem- bered that it is at times difficult to obtain accurate initial infor- mation on any subject on this campus. Some sources are much more willing to point out inaccu- racies or misinterpretations in specific articles than they are to provide pertinent information prior to publication. And, some sources tend to present only the facts, especially on political or quasi-political issues, that put them and or their actions in a favorable light. Add to these the difficulties of obtaining all pos- sible information in time to meet a specified deadline, and many of the alleged inaccuracies are more understandable. While by no means perfect, it must be admitted that the RID- GERUNNER, with no journal- ism department to draw on for personnel or expertise, still manages to serve its purpose. It manages to come out on a regular basis. It contains a wide range of articles, from factual pieces to humorous features. And whatever else you can say about the RIDGERUNNER, it at least gives everyone some- thing to complain about. 119 Surprise. You ' re reading this copy. Which means vou got a 1977 Volume of the SUMMIT. Which means there WAS a 1977 Volume of the SUMMIT. And this is a surprise. Nora Aiken, who was selected as the 1976-77 Editor, resigned at the beginning of the fall se- mester. Her regignation was due, at least in part, to pressure from the staff remaining from the 1976 book, who were dissat- isfied with her performance. Despite assurances that the Publications Board would be appointed and a new SUMMIT editor selected no later than the end of the second week of the first term, it was not until No- vember that the new editor was selected. During the interim period, the SUMMIT went through two acting editors, Erwin Cook and Forrest Reid. On November 3, Tony Fisher was selected Editor. In De- cember, Copy Editor Reid re- signed due to a dissatisfaction with the status of the SUM- MIT, coupled with an offer from the RIDGERUNNER, Summit i 120 IS TOP L-R Jean Hutchison Editor Rebekah Johnson Business Manager BOTTOM L-R Gene Jones Photographer Eddie Gaither Photographer Forrest Reid Copy Editor Cheryl Revis Fisher, who was student teaching, had less time to de- vote to the SUMMIT than he had anticipated. This lack of time led to dissension among his staff. After the resignation of photographer John Clark, Fish- er, due to a lack of time and intent, resigned as Editor on February 23. Jean Hutchison, SUMMIT Business Manager, was appoint- ed Editor, receiving $125 for putting together the bulk of the book (P.T. Barnum being once more proved correct in his as- sumption). Everett Corn, Head Photographer, graduated in ear- ly March, creating a strain on the photographic staff. So you see the problems the SUMMIT has had this year. But, as you sit here reading you now stand numbered among an illustrious group, one that in- cludes the Disciples of Christ, Ezekiel, and the attendants of the Sermon on the Mount. For, by holding this finished SUMMIT in your hand, what you are witnessing is a miracle. f ,.■ 121 FRONT (L-R) George Stein, Advisor Cosmic Evaluator Lisa Whitaker BACK (L-R) Christine Jones Kathv Kremer Billy McClain Clay Arrington Marvin Jones Images Forthwith, therefore, here- after, and perhaps forever- more, the policy of IMAGES is to reveal the pathaphysical principles inherently found in the ethereal essence of the fine arts.

Sometimes these per- ceptions are accurate, some- times they are distorted, but they last from year to year. After the traditional rituals of the Chancellor ' s address, a few choice words from the current SG President, and recruiting propaganda from the various campus organizations, new stu- dents are fed lunch and then led to the dreaded task of registra- tion in Justice Gymnasium. Registration is almost always confusing and at times frustrat- ing. Advisors are hard to track down, classes you need or want are often closed while you are standing in line waiting to pick up your class cards, and almost everyone you talk to seems worn out and sometimes just a little bit irritable. A¥t •K- Registration And Orientation Once registration is complet- ed, however, there are more so- cial activities during Orienta- tion Week than sometimes oc- cur in a term. This year, Forum Theatre productions, beer busts, picnics, parties with live music, movies, and dances were provided to soften the inevita- ble blow of classes. While Orientation Week is in no way representative of day to day life at UNCA, it does pro- vide students with a concentrat- ed feel of the quality of student life. After all, that ' s what it ' s all about. r 129 Dances And Busts 130 Alcohol and dancing are two social traditions which have been passed down over the ages. Today, dancing is still very much a part of our social life, while alcohol (next to television) is the most widely used social drug in our soci- ety. Both are important parts of the UNC-A social offering. Several dances are held each year, giving students a chance to party, dance, and to chase the blues away. Beer busts are also very pop- ular events, as students come together at the end of a long week to shrug off the pressures of academia and get right for the weekend. 131 f sm W-W-W-Winter It started getting cold in No- vember, very cold, freezing or below at night. As the days drew closer to December, it became obvious that the winter of 1976- 77 was going to be a real pipe- burster. It was. All over the country, the ef- fects of winter were harsh, made worse by a fuel shortage. Schools were closed repeatedly, in some states continuously. Snows were at a record high, temperatures often at a record low. Many people froze to death. Some were literally snowed in for days at office buildings and public agencies. In the Asheville area it wasn ' t quite that bad, but it was bad enough. It was commonplace to hear of people whose pipes had frozen who had not had water for as much as six weeks. Burst- ing pipes were a frequent occur- ance; one morning even a city water main burst in Biltmore, covering the street, the sidewalks, and even power lines. Ads for people offering a pipe- thawing service were common; so were pipe-thawing bills rang- ing from $60 to over $100. ■• 132 I 1 Television stations were con- stantly warning about the dan- ger of frostbite, and offering ad- vice on how to dress for the weather. Stores began closing earlier at night in an effort to conserve energy. People spent more time at home. The smell of woods- moke was a common thing, as was a run on firewood and kin- dling. Beaver Lake froze over solid, for the first time in years. It re- mained frozen for several weeks at a thickness that allowed peo- ple to enjoy ice-skating and hockey games. Even the school itself had dif- ficulties this winter. Hit by the gas shortage, enforced tempera- tures of sixty-five degrees be- came school policy. Thermo- stats in the various buildings were continually checked by maintenance personnel. The dorm students had it worst of all, with hot water shut off four days out of seven. Showers were taken at the gym on off days, where shivering dorm students often stood chattering with commuter students who were using the showers due to frozen pipes at home. As Spring slowly came into view, nice days slowly lulled chilled students into visions of warmth and rebirth as the sun grew brighter and warmer. But Winter had not left the stage yet, as several more cold days and nights proved. What a win- ter. 133 Classical At UNC-A Classical Guitar week, like the performance of the Warsaw Quintet, was an attempt to present entertainment of a cultural level to the students of UNC-A. The program was sponsored by WUNF, and consisted of one week of classical guitar classes. The program was crowned by a master recital by Mary Ackerman. Ms. Ackerman, who is working on her Master ' s Degree, primarily played South American and Spanish pieces. To the people who attended, the program was enjoyable and interesting. Unfortunately, the program was not well publicized, and attendance was poor. This led to WUNF ' s losing about $425.00 on the entire affair. 134 kJ L .rrr 136 LI i Roll Up Your Sleeves Twice a year the Lobby of Li- pinsky becomes the site of the Red Cross Blood Drive, the most important event held on campus. Students, faculty, and administrative personnel all pitch in, rolling up their sleeves, stretching out their bodies, cov- ering up their eyes, and giving something of themselves to a cause which is a matter of life. Homecoming Homecoming ' 77, like many of its predecessor ' s, was held at the Grove Park Inn, only this time with a twist. This year the dance was held in the lobby, instead of in the ballroom. This made for a slightly different atmosphere, to say the least. But, with homecoming, the important thing isn ' t where the dance is •held: what ' s important is the people who attend. Current friends; old friends who are just back in town for the weekend; faculty members; members of the administration; all are there, and all are concerned only with having a good time. Dancers move frantically across the floor; elbows are bent until they are wrinkled; laughter fills the room, sometimes drowning out the music. It is a night for celebration, for escape from academic life, for enjoNTnent. 138 U 1. Q ■ 1 i r - ' : ■. ' L Students Get High UNC-A ' s first Balloon Day held Saturday, March 26, on the soccer field. This was SG ' s first outdoor activity of Spring. Activities included softball and volleyball, while many also got into playing frisbee and just laying back in the sun. Though only three musical groups (Campers of the Forest, Dan Lewis, and the Goodtime Oat- meal Band) were scheduled to perform, a fourth group (Brad Arnold) and Anne Haught) also performed. The balloon, a model AX-6 Hot Air Balloon, was ready for take-off at 3:00 P.M. and flights were conducted for over an hour, giving many a chance to get " up in the air over the par- ty " in a positive sense for a change. Food in the form of hambur- gers, hot dogs, soft drinks and (of course) beer was provided by the SO, and only those with I.D. cards were served. Unfortunately, though I.D. cards were required for food, it was still easy for non-studenfs to take advantage of the activi- ties. One such visitor attempted suicide by slashing his wrists, then hit a car with a van as he tried to leave campus. Several students then pursued him as he fled on foot across campus. He was finally taken to Memori- al Mission by Ambulance. 140 Rockmont It had rained for several days prior to April 24, and it seemed for awhile that Rockmont would have to be postponed til May. But Friday the 23 was a warm, sunny day, and the go-ahead was given for the 24. The day proved to be an enjoyable one. Students enjoyed the sun after the long winter, drank beer, and listened to the sounds provided by Loafer ' s Glory. There were Softball games, tennis games and canoe- ing. Clusters of people playing Frisbee could be seen all over the campground. Supper was served that evening, and was well received by the picnicers. Night at Rockmont was a bit slower, with the dance over an hour late getting started. Even so, most peo- ple enjoyed themselves Rockmont proved a success. 142 y i 143 Graduation Graduation is the most important single event in college life. All courses have been completed. All that remains is to pick up the diploma which represents four (or more) years of effort, and then it is time to leave UNC-A behind. The ceremony this year was held on the steps of the Ramsey Library Building on May 13. Speaking to the graduating class were many illustrious alumni and former officials of the school; Roy A. Taylor; Wilma Dykeman Stokely; Glenn L. Bushey; Manly E. Wright; Frances A. Buchanan; and William A. John- son. Anne Elizabeth Thrasher, a Mathematics Major, received the Cecil L. Reid Scholarship Award, and graduated summa cum laude. After diplomas had been presented, the graduates were left to realize what they would miss most about UNC-A: the people.
